When will the American people stop falling for outright nonsense? Never, it seems! Everyone who lives in New York City, or has ridden what I refer to as “The Iron Worm” or “The Rancid Transit”, and Jozie refers to as “The Electric Sewer”, has had their intelligence insulted with the ubiquitous “If you see something, say something” posters and P.A. announcements, and has had their 4th Amendment right to be free from unlawful searches violated by the “random searches” conducted by the police.
There IS such a thing as the Constitution in this country… although you’d never know it by the way the American people are so easily intimidated into giving up their rights which are guaranteed by that document. Someone should go into business printing the Bill of Rights on rolls of toilet paper – that is what the REAL Bill of Rights is good for these days.
More and more in this country, it seems that the government is getting away with the assertion of their “right” to violate a citizen’s privacy, and detain or delay a citizen, merely upon suspicion, and excuse the invasion of privacy by saying that the searches are random. Let me tell you that this is a very slippery slope, indeed…. And I’ll tell you some very good reasons for my position.
Like most people, I would not be fond of getting blown up by some fanatic nut-job, for no other reason than he or she is pissed off at someone else’s politics…. And while I’m at it, let me kick that dog as I walk by…. If I was pissed off at someone (like the President, or the Governor, let’s say), and I was crazy enough to blow myself up thinking some god would reward me for it, why in hell would I go and blow up innocent people who don’t have a stake in my quarrel with the person or persons I am angry at? Does a terrorist believe that blowing up 3,000 United States citizens (on 9-11) makes a hell of a lot of difference to a demented cretin sitting in the Oval Office? Does a terrorist (or do you, for that matter) believe that George “Dubya” Bush gives a rat’s ass about 3,000 (or so) peons buried under the rubble of a technologically obsolete structure? Please! Can’t you people tell that it’s all an Academy-Award winning ACT?
So now that the “dog” I ran into in the course of presenting this to you has been “kicked” – let’s move on to the topic at hand…. which is the unlawful, unconstitutional search of New York City subway passengers. I must ask a few questions that are begging, here. I guess I’ll begin with the most obvious one first, and I’ll try to answer the questions honestly and realistically.
QUESTION: If you were a police officer assigned to conduct “random’ searches of passengers entering a subway platform, how do you define “random”, and how do you choose your victims, so that your own bias doesn’t get in the way?
ANSWER: I would define “random” as a lottery; a straw, or “lot”. It is a random choice between three or more available choices (one out of two would not be “random”). If one out of 100 passengers were searched, then the chances of that “one in a million” suicide bomber getting onto a subway platform are virtually assured. Your “bias” is always in the way; a choice is ALWAYS a bias of one sort or another. If I chose men primarily, that would be a bias; if I chose to search only men who wore turbans, that would be bias. if I chose men who wore turbans, and who chanted
“Allah Akbar, that would be profiling. If I chose women primarily, that would be a bias, and if I chose only pretty young women, that definitely would be biased, and I’d like to volunteer my services for that tour of duty, thank you very much.
QUESTION: Should I, as a police officer who honestly has a “gut feeling” or “hunch” (or whatever you want to call it) that a certain man carrying a backpack through a turnstile may be a terrorist, stop that man and ask him to “Open your backpack, please”.
ANSWER: If the man was indeed a terrorist bent on carrying ten pounds of Semtex™ into a subway tunnel and detonating it, I would have to be INSANE (or have a death wish) to even approach him – never mind asking to inspect the contents of his backpack. The response I get to my polite inquiry might just be that he pulls the pin and sets off the explosion right then and there. I might end up with a hero’s funeral, and my family would get a folded flag in a nice, triangular wooden box to hang over the fireplace.
QUESTION: How does a police officer detect a small vial of weaponized Anthrax concealed in a lip balm tube?
ANSWER: Only by a very thorough, time-consuming search with specialized, expensive equipment that he / she doesn’t happen to have on hand at the moment.
QUESTION: How does a police officer detect explosives if they are concealed in a piece of equipment such as a laptop computer?
ANSWER: Only by using trained dogs that can smell the stuff going by (this would trigger a legal probable cause search). However, dogs are almost never a part of the search team.
QUESTION: What does a police officer do if he / she DOES find a bomb or a Bio-weapon.
ANSWER: Who the hell knows? Probably skid-mark his skivvies like the rest of us would.
QUESTION: If I were a terrorist, is the most effective way to get as much “bang” for my “buck” (so-to-speak) as possible to carry a bomb onto a subway train,?
ANSWER: No, hardly. A few pounds of C-4 or Semtek™ might kill a few hundred people, and put the train out of service for a while. If you JUST wanted to disrupt subway service, all you have to do is hire a true Native American to do a rain dance. If it rains a few inches, many of the subway tunnels get flooded, and it’s just as good as a bomb if not better, because then they blame the shitty subway service on GOD!
QUESTION: How could I blow up the subway without carrying a bomb and killing myself? (I really don’t believe in that “seventy virgins and all the wine you can drink” stuff).
ANSWER: Hijack a gasoline truck, and drive along 8th Avenue, or Madison Avenue. When you get to a subway vent grating, stop, stand over the grating and wait until the trains go by. When the trains are out of the station, just dump a few thousand gallons down the grating, and then run like hell. The next train coming into the station will vaporize (evaporate) the liquid, and distribute the vapors. the next third-rail spark will set off an explosion you won’t believe.
QUESTION: How would YOU handle the terrorism problem, hot-shot?
ANSWER: Close the borders, mind my own goddamn business, and stop invading other countries with bullshit excuses about WMDs in order to rob their OIL.
QUESTION: Should I feel safe riding the New York City subway?
ANSWER: You’re as safe as you ever were, but not as safe as you should be.
QUESTION: Are Americans safe ANYWHERE?
ANSWER: Yes, absolutely.
ANSWER: The Swiss Alps and the mountains of Tibet (hire a Sherpa).
QUESTION: Why is this essay posted on
Assholes Among Us ?
ANSWER: Because anyone who really believes that the US government is protecting them from terrorism is a straight-up ASSHOLE – that’s why!
QUESTION: Why does Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan hate us?
ANSWER: They don’t. They hate our politicians. They hate our government, and they hate our government meddling in their affairs where we have no legitimate business. They believe that US citizens have control of their government by voting – they’re dead wrong. By attacking civilians, the terrorists believe that they can persuade the voters to pressure the US government to – fuck-off. Wrong again!
QUESTION: Do you believe George Bush knew 9-11 was going to happen?
ANSWER: I believe George Bush is just as much, if not more a “terrorist” than
Osama bin Laden, or that
other piece of shit that just ate an American missile for breakfast.
QUESTION: How do I know when the government is lying?
ANSWER: That’s easy…. The US Government is INCAPABLE of telling the truth. Whenever someone who is speaking in an official capacity for the government of the United States, there is always more rhetoric than reality; more symbolism over substance; more obfuscation than objective fact. If you listen to the mainstream media without the benefit of having read
“The Lie Detection Handbook”, you are brainwashed and don’t know it.
The truth, my dear friends, is that the terrorist attacks of 9-11-01 were done with the tacit consent of high government officials – including, I believe, George “Dubya” Bush. His cousin was the chief of security in the North Tower. Is that a coincidence? Hardly! I believe in coincidences, but there comes a point where the odds of coincidence lead to indicia of conspiracy. This leads to the most important, and the most perplexing question of all:
QUESTION: Why would officials in the US Government conspire with terrorists?
ANSWER: They are not conspiring with terrorists – they ARE the terrorists! One man’s “terrorist” is another’s “freedom fighter”, and another man’s “hero”. Some people worship another god (Satan). Some people are members of secret Occult organizations that have their roots in the Rosicrucians, the Masons, the Knights Templar, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR),
et al., and have a One World Government, New World Order (Novus Ordo Seclorum) agenda. They act against the sovereign rights of the United States and its citizens by committing treason and justifying it with fabricated bullshit.
QUESTION: If politicians know that subway searches won’t protect us from a determined suicide bomber, why do they continue to search people?
ANSWER: “Little and Little”, as Plutarch once said. “Here a little and there a little” as the prophet Isaiah wrote. Today we permit the unreasonable, ineffective, unlawful, and unconstitutional searches of our persons, because “I have nothing to hide” and it makes us feel that by allowing ourselves to be inconvenienced, it is our part – what little part we can play – in deterring further terrorist attacks. Perhaps it makes us feel safer that cops searching bags in the subway is better than doing nothing. The truth is, we might as well do nothing, because all the cops can do by being on the scene of a terrorist attack is die like the rest of us. There is a true axiom:
“Those who will give up part of their liberty to gain a bit of security will have neither”.
QUESTION: Do you believe that the US Government has a plan to implement Martial Law?
ANSWER: They’ve already done it – only most people are unaware of it.
QUESTION: Is there historical precedent for what happened on 9-11?
ANSWER: Yes. Hitler’s troops burned the Reichstag (see: “People’s History of the United States” by Howard Zinn). That was a pivotal event that turned the Weimar Republic into The Third Reich. You should also read “Brotherhood of Darkness” by Dr. Stan Monteith, and “Robespierre” by Otto Scott (on the French Revolution).
The bottom line is that the New York City subways are NOT SAFE. They weren’t safe before 9-11, and they’re not safe now. The fact that the “Electric Sewer” is a potential prime target for a terrorist attack is a “given” that Ray Charles could see. The “extremists” so-called are calculating and resourceful. They are motivated by the antagonism and mind control of CIA Covert Operations. The American public is brainwashed by the mechanism of
Psychopolitics. There are definitely dark forces at work here – they are the “Principalities and Powers” spoken of in the book of Ephesians. The only victory we will have over them is victory in the Lord Jesus Christ.
When one studies scripture, it is not enough to memorize verses that you can quote “here and there” to bolster your own point of view, or support your own agenda. As for myself, I would prefer to live my life in peace, as most of you reading this would.
“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned”.
It may seem out of place that I quote the Bible, but if anyone is to understand and make sense of world events, he or she must view those events with a spiritual perspective. It is doubtful to this writer, that the next terrorist attack on our shores would involve the NYC subway. Much more lasting and extensive damage can be done by other means, which I won’t get into here. Some will read this and dismiss it out-of-hand, and they are entitled to their narrow-minded opinion. If I had any insight into the events of 9-11 other than the FACT that the Trade Towers – particularly building #7 which collapsed early that evening – were demolished professionally, I certainly wouldn’t be writing this article here.
The citizens of the United States deserve an honest and forthright explanation of precisely why 9-11 happened. Don’t hold your breath expecting any remorseful catharsis by the traitors and criminals in our own government that allowed this to happen – at this point, the precise “reason” unknown. If you realize that there are demon-possessed people in high government positions, then you’ll know for certain that evil does not need a reason to exist, or an excuse for killing people. The “end” sought by the powerful “elite”; the self-proclaimed “Illuminati” – is nothing short of a central world government, whose State-sponsored religion is the worship of Satan. Satan hates us, because we are made in the “image and likeness” of God, who he hates but cannot touch.
In my opinion, the attacks of September 11, 2001, terrorists bombing the subways, shopping malls, and shooting commercial jets out of the sky with portable missiles, are the least of our problems, and the beginning of even more serious troubles. People – even straight-up nut jobs like Al Queada and the Taliban – do not engage in self-sacrificing crusades of vengeance without a cause.
Truth be told, the “terrorist soldier” is perhaps the most effective and efficient means by which an inferior force can overcome a superior opponent. The fatal line of reasoning Americans employ in the determination of who is winning – or will win – a conflict, is a measure of how many enemy “kills” one can claim to his side’s credit. We made that fatal mistake in Vietnam, and because we lie complacent in our confidence in a corrupt administration to act in our best interests, we fail to learn from our own recent history, and are doomed to repeat the error…. Only this time, the battle is being brought to our shores.
It is time that Americans demand that warmongering politicians with personal ties to the military industrial complex, resign from office, or get in a boxing ring with the principals of the countries they seek to invade.
It is time that Americans assert their right to be free of a government that seeks to impose restrictions on their personal freedom in the face of opposition from a conjured-up Bogeyman – and make no mistake about this, folks – the Taliban and the other “Islamic extremist” organizations are a monster that the US Government intentionally created. It is created and contrived to rally support of an uninformed, ignorant and naïve public for an invasion of another nation in order that the people who really run this government (corporate Oil and pharmaceutical cartels) may enjoy windfall profits. It is HIGH time that America becomes self-sufficient by the use of energy technology which is available, but being suppressed by “big oil”. In short, it’s time to throw the bastards out – and if they refuse to leave, then eject them at gunpoint, if necessary. We have that God-given right to claim what is ours, and to leave to other peoples of this world, what is rightfully theirs. If we would spend half as much on energy research as we do in killing people, we could all be driving ten-ton SUVs, and the Saudis, the Iraqis, the Iranians, and all the rest of those towel-head, camel-driving sand niggers could rub that “black gold” on their ass.
It doesn’t take a brain surgeon’s mentality to create chaos and death; it doesn’t take a “terrorist network” to plan an evil a thing as the bombing of a subway, or the hijacking of the four aircraft used in the attacks of 9-11. Fortunately for this world, really evil people are the exception and not the rule. I am a subscriber to the theory proposed by L. Ron Hubbard in “Dianetics” – that “Man is basically good” – with the caveat that “good” in that statement is “good” as defined in Man’s relativistic terms. As a Christian, I know that every human being is sinful by nature, and even the “good” things men do, are “as filthy rags” in the eyes of God. Certainly, if we were to create a scale to measure evil, killing innocent people would rank at the top of that scale. We must remember that terrorism doesn’t make sense because evil does not need a reason. If we keep that fact in mind, we can begin to understand that the battle we are fighting is a spiritual battle – a war fought for the hearts and minds of men. We cannot fight spiritual battles with physical weapons. You can’t destroy an idea with a bomb… if anything, killing the terrorists like
al Zarquari will only make martyrs out of them in the eyes of their followers.
This world stands on the brink of nuclear war. If you think that it will take a MAJOR event to precipitate the Biblical Armageddon prophesied in Ezekiel 38 – 39, and in the Book of Revelation – think again. I urge you to do your homework, and examine the causes of the last two World Wars. The third and last World War will begin in much the same way… with a seemingly innocuous provocation.
I believe I have illustrated the ease with which a truly disastrous attack can be carried out by a single man with a gasoline truck. Before you accuse me of “giving the terrorists ideas”, just remember that there are evil people in this world who meditate all day, and dream about such things. A thought is the first step in the manifestation of a reality. An idea – good or bad – tends to manifest itself in the physical universe.
An idea comes from the spirit of an individual, and is communicated to the body by the mind, with the physical brain as a switchboard. Good ideation and bad ideation can be thought of as Creation and Destruction, respectively. The two forces are opposed, and one can only overwhelm the other.
I believe that the terrorist attacks on the United States were deliberately provoked in order for the “Brotherhood of Darkness” to have an excuse to create chaos. In the midst of chaos, one can loot, steal, and pillage the wealth of another person or another nation. When chaos prevails, it gives the powers-that-be the mandate and an excuse to impose restrictions on our liberty, and eventually violate the rights of free men all over the world. Chaos, and the insecurity it brings, allows the politicians to blackmail us into giving up our civil liberties in exchange for a false sense of security. Whether their plan works or fails depends upon each and every one of us.
QUESTION: Is an attack on the NY City subway system possible?
ANSWER: Yes, definitely… but highly unlikely.
QUESTION: Is there any means by which to circumvent such an attack?
ANSWER: No. There are just too many points of entry, and too many people to suspect and search.
QUESTION: Don’t we have the technology to detect explosives?
ANSWER: Yes, but you won’t see a single one of these devices actually being used by NYPD, TSA, or any security agency. Even if these devices were deployed, they cannot detect biological weapons or nerve gas agents.
QUESTION: Why haven’t these “terrorists” ever clearly stated their demands?
ANSWER: Because they have no “demands”. What they have is – literally – a pact with the devil. They hate God (they know He exists), and are doing Satan’s bidding by fomenting violence and war.
QUESTION: What do I do in case of a terrorist attack on the subway?
ANSWER: Carry an LED flashlight, a good folding knife, matches, and a bottle of something to drink – if you survive, you can use the light to signal for help, and the fluid will keep you from dying of thirst (assuming you can breathe) while you’re waiting to be dug out from under the rubble.
QUESTION: What do I do in case of a nuclear attack.
ANSWER This is beyond the scope of this essay, and strays from the topic a bit, but I’ll answer anyway: Pray that the bomb hits you on the head, because if you’re anywhere near the blast, you don’t want to survive.
QUESTION: Who will win the “war on terrorism”?
