From time to time I have perhaps taken too seriously comments and commentary written by those whose political leanings lie toward the left of the political spectrum. I have even on occasion taken issue with Messrs. Keegan and Durham for their criticism of W, Big Time Cheney, John McCain, Stiletto Sarah Palin, and yes, even Karl â€œSith Lordâ€ Rove.
For the record, gentlemen, let me commend you for your level headedness. You guys ainâ€™t got nothinâ€™ on Naomi Wolf
As much as I hate linking to HuffPo simply because most of what is posted there makes little sense, you really should go read Wolfâ€™s diatribe and see the slow motion train wreck as it unfolds before your very eyes.
Here are some highlights, along with commentary provided by Yourâ€™s Truly:
You have to understand how things work in a closing society in order to understand “Palin Power.” A gang or cabal seizes power, usually with an affable, weak figurehead at the fore. Then they will hold elections — but they will make sure that the election will be corrupted and that the next affable, weak figurehead is entirely in their control. Remember, Russia has Presidents; Russia holds elections. Dictators and gangs of thugs all over the world hold elections. It means nothing. When a cabal has seized power you can have elections and even presidents, but you have freedom.
A â€œcabalâ€? Russian elections? Evidently this has been building up inside Ms. Wolf since November of 2000.
Reports confirmed my suspicions: Palin, not McCain, is the FrankenBarbie of the Rove-Cheney cabal. The strategy became clear. Time magazine reported that Rove is “dialed in” to the McCain campaign. Rove’s protÃ©gÃ© Steve Schmidt is now campaign manager. And Politico reported that Rove was heavily involved in McCain’s vice presidential selection. Finally a new report shows that there are dozens of Bush and Rove operatives surrounding Sarah Palin and orchestrating her every move.
What’s the plan? It is this. McCain doesn’t matter. Reputable dermatologists are discussing the fact that in simply actuarial terms, John McCain has a virulent and life-threatening form of skin cancer. It is the elephant in the room, but we must discuss the health of the candidates: doctors put survival rates for someone his age at two to four years. I believe the Rove-Cheney cabal is using Sarah Palin as a stalking horse, an Evita figure, to put a popular, populist face on the coming police state and be the talk show hostess for the end of elections as we know them. If McCain-Palin get in, this will be the last true American election. She will be working for Halliburton, KBR, Rove and Cheney into the foreseeable future — for a decade perhaps — a puppet “president” for the same people who have plundered our treasure, are now holding the US economy hostage and who murdered four thousand brave young men and women in a way of choice and lies.
Halliburton, Cheney, and Roveâ€¦Oh My!!
Almost everyone I work with on projects related to this campaign for liberty has been experiencing computer harassment: emails are stripped, messages disappear. That’s not all: people’s bank accounts are being tampered with: wire transfers to banks vanish in midair. I personally keep opening bank accounts that are quickly corrupted by fraud. Money vanishes. Coworkers of mine have to keep opening new email accounts as old ones become infected.
Memo to Ms. Wolf: Maybe you should stop replying to all those emails informing you about the death of your heretofore unknown rich relative in Nigeria, the Sudan, or the Ivory Coast who left you some $50 million which you can get if you just give the sender your banking information. Itâ€™s called a spam filter. Buy one. End Memo.
And most disturbingly to me personally is the mail tampering I have both heard of and experienced firsthand. My tax returns vanished from my mailbox.
Ever heard of Direct Deposit? Oh, that requires a valid bank account. Refer to previous memo.
My childrens’ report cards are returned again and again though perfectly addressed; their invitations are turned back; and my daughters many letters from camp? Vanished. All of them. Not one arrived. Try explaining that to a smart thirteen year old. Try explaining it in a way that still makes her feel secure and comfortable.
Hmmmm. When I was a kid, my report cards seemed to mysteriously â€œvanishâ€ when they contained less than stellar grades. As for your other â€œcorrespondenceâ€ I feel the need to let you in on a secret to which you are oblivious: Ms. Wolf, you arenâ€™t that interesting. If the CIA, NSA, NRO or other cryptic agency were actually interested in you, you wouldnâ€™t even notice it. Yes, they are that good at what they do. So, either your mail carrier is an idiot or you have a stalker. Howâ€™s that for an explanation?
This is not about my fear and anxiety: it is about what awaits you and everyone you love unless you see this for what it is… Sarah “Evita” Palin is Rove and Cheney’s cosmetic rebranding of their fascist push: she will help to establish a true and irreversible “fear society” in this once free once proud nation. For God’s sake, do not let her; do not let them.
Actually, this is all about your fear and anxiety. Itâ€™s about the fact that people like you canâ€™t stand the fact that Stiletto Sarah may just be the reason why the sputtering Team Obama just might squander the best opportunity the Democrats have had in half a century.
Either that, or you need thicker tinfoil on your hat.
