“A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victim, and he wears their face and their garments and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. The traitor is the plague.”
Marcus Tullius CICERO (106-43 BC)
Is America at the point where it must fear traitors within? She stands well armed, with the latest military technology at her fingertips, and with more being developed with every new moon. She controls outer space, and for the most part the seven seas.
Yet she is rotting from within with a rot brought on us and fertilized by traitors to the American ideal, its Constitution, and its Christian underpinnings among whom are her elected leaders.
We had a President (Bush) who refused to secure the borders of his own country, even after two states on her southern border declare states of emergency. What goes through the mind of a man who takes no action in this situation? Does he care, or is he too busy with other issues that take precedence? Dare we entertain the thought that he is fully aware of alien millions pouring into the country he has sworn to defend and silently welcomes them?
We have no choice but to entertain that thought. Everything we see points to this. Whether we like it or not, the President of The United States was conducting himself as a traitor to the nation and people he has pledged to defend.
We ask, “But why would he do this? Doesn’t he realize the possible results of his actions? If the people are dead against this immigrant invasion, then why allow it to continue?”
Flashback to June 9, 2005, another day that should live in infamy. The Lou Dobbs nightly report. On his report Dobbs played a clip of a government hearing that featured Robert Pastor, a ranking member of the Council on Foreign Relations who was addressing members of the United States Congress. In his remarks to this panel Pastor suggested that the United States eliminate its border with Mexico, and also Canada, and in their place surround all three countries with one common border, and within that border allow the free flow of people and goods.
Did the members of Congress listening to this man then pick him up and throw him down the front stairs of the capitol building, asking him who did he think he was advocating that the United States of America commit suicide? Did they go before cameras so they could be on the evening news denouncing this fruitcake who so brazenly proposed a plan that would destroy the United States as we now know it? Did the President of the United States offer an opinion on the matter?
No! What should have been a major topic of national discussion was quietly passed over. Apart from those watching the Lou Dobbs report that night, the vast majority of Americans knew nothing of plans circulating in various think tanks and government agencies geared to selling their country down the river.
But the question must then be asked: Did the President of The United States know about this? Is he familiar with these plans? Does he approve of them?
He had be aware of them, and he must have approve of them. There is no other logical conclusion. This is why he refused to close our southern border. This made him a part of, and quite possibly one of the prime movers of, a conspiracy against the American people.
When one thinks of the word ‘traitor’ he usually imagines a trusted citizen of the kingdom, possibly one in high position, a man with connections, who makes use of his position to in some way stab his king in the back (whether figuratively or literally) and in the process usurp the throne or deliver the kingdom to the King’s enemies for a price. This definition we can understand. There are always those among us who will take whatever action necessary in order to increase their own power or financial position.
But in the United States at the present time we have a slightly different situation. No one is attempting to overthrow the King; no one is attempting to deliver the King’s kingdom to his enemies. The problem here was with the King himself. This King was selling out his own country to what he foolishly believes is a better system, even though his kingdom at the present time is the most powerful, most free, and most prosperous of all. So why is he doing it?
Enter the Utopian. This individual is normally found in advanced and educated (?) settings. He has a high opinion of his own intelligence, and more or less disdain for the common man. He alone knows what is best for everyone and for society in general. Noted Utopians of the past include: Marx, Lenin, Mao, Pol Pot, and even Adolph Hitler. Each tried perfecting his society in his own way, convinced that in the final analysis the world would be far better off (even if in the process they had to slaughter and imprison millions to bring about their perfect world).
All Utopians preach unrestrained freedom from oppression, but at the same time want to so completely organize that freedom that they turn it into slavery. They do not accept opposing arguments and despise that which conforms to reality, and instead exalt the vagueness of abstract thinking which gives them a feeling of communion with some amorphous super-reality known only to them.
Was Geo. W. Bush a Utopian?
Hardly, although he had obviously surrendered his mind to those who hold Utopian views. After almost 8 years of his presidency he had exhibited little if any intellectual power or knowledge of how the world really works. His speeches and comments at news conferences compare to someone who spent most of his life in his backyard stepping on ants. There is nothing there. He stared into the camera and recited cardboard policies, unaware that he was being laughed at by millions. The man become a national joke. However you cannot convince him of that. Like most men with a Utopian mindset, he knows better at least this is what he was being told, along with the line that someday the world will thank him for his steadfast convictions.
But he did possess one extraordinary talent. He was the Perfect Puppet. He did as he is instructed, and he did it very well. He made outlandish statements as if they were given to him from Mt. Sinai and cared little of what people thought. His foremost concern was what his bosses thought of his performance as he did their bidding. If they advocate free trade, he runs all over the world advocating free trade, regardless of the consequences to his own country. If they want open borders and cheap labor, he keeps the borders open and does what he can to keep that cheap labor here, no matter how often people complain. If they want a North American Union, then he will campaign for a North American Union. If they want NAFTA, then he will promote NAFTA and even build a super highway for it, and he cares nothing if the people complain. If the Israeli lobby wants him to occupy Iraq and then threaten Iran with war solely for the well–being of the state of Israel, he does it, even though neither country is a threat to the United States. If this costs his own country billions of dollars and thousands dead he feels it must be worth it as the sacrifice will produce something better at least this is what they told him.
In his mind he believed he was doing the right thing for the world. He believed that because he was told that. Personally, he had no idea if these actions were good or bad. He lacked the capacity to know, and probably didn’t care anyway. He was performing as a good puppet, caretaker, and builder of a New World Order that will eventually benefit all. He had been told this, so it must be true.
His actions make him a traitor to his own country. Yet so far none have dared call it treason. Why not?
