Government by Emergency

By now we are all used to how Washington works. The conspiracy
for world government concocts and announces an emergency. It
could be military. Someone "has attacked us." It could
be medical. "Millions of Americans lack health care" or
"there is an epidemic." It could be a natural disaster,
like a hurricane. Or, maybe it is economic or cultural.
"Women routinely are abused. They earn only a fraction of a
man’s pay. Black people are deprived. Latinos are
insulted," et cetera and so on. Then, whichever marionette
the conspirators have installed in the Oval Office at the time
announces an emergency "solution."

This is government by emergency. Most Americans have never
experienced anything else and don’t know it could be done
differently. They think government by emergency is
"normal." So would I, had I not lived for a few years
in a couple of other countries. There, emergencies were unusual
events. Most of the time, people in those countries just
live.

So it was that the Battleship Maine exploded from the inside
out, but Washington said it was "attacked" in Havana,
thereby launching the Spanish-American War. So it was that Wilson
and Churchill concocted the pretence that the British warship
Lusitania, loaded with military supplies, was a "passenger
liner," arranged for a German U-Boat to sink it in 1915 and
used the concocted outrage to trick America into the war to make
the world safe for world government, World War I.

So it was that swindler, mass murderer and traitor Franklin
Roosevelt deliberately arranged the Japanese attack on Pearl
Harbor in 1941 and the murder of some 3,000 Americans, to trick
the United States into World War II and then into the Communist U
Nations. See, for instance, ‘Day of Deceit’,
by Robert Stinnett – a staunch admirer of Roosevelt’s
– says the monster had to do it for our own good, because
Americans of the time were too stupid to know it.

So it was that Soviet boss Josef Stalin ordered Communist
North Korea to attack the South in 1950, while his UN delegate,
Jacob Malik, boycotted the Security Council in New York to
protest our refusal to admit Communist-occupied China, so that
when the vote came up to send UN (American) troops to Korea to
"fight Communism" for years, Washington
"outsmarted" Stalin, "winning" the vote
because Malik "mistakenly" wasn’t there to cast a
veto.

So it was that the Gulf of Tonkin "incident" that
launched our full-scale invasion of Vietnam never happened,
according to Admiral James Stockdale, Medal of Honour, who was
there at the time, and who said nothing happened. There was no
"incident" as the event was concocted. Our own leaders
used it as the excuse to trick us into a war they did not allow
us to win.

So it was that the Gulf War happened because U.S. Ambassador
April Glaspie in effect told Saddam Hussein, the man we had armed
to the earlobes, that there would be no problem were he to invade
Kuwait. When Saddam accepted her invitation, April disappeared
into the bowels of the Department of State. And so it was that
Gulf War II erupted because Saddam Hussein had Weapons of Mass
Destruction we gave him, or because he tortured his people, or
because he was a totalitarian dictator.

So it was that Mike (aka Martin Luther) King said himself, in
his own magazine article (Saturday Review, April 3, 1965), that
violence routinely erupted in his "non-violent"
demonstrations because violence was precisely what he went into
the street to get, provoking the targets to respond and
pressuring Congress into passing whatever legislation he
wanted.

So it was that medical costs were low and the poor could get
the finest medical treatment available pro bono from doctors who
considered the profession a calling, but the federal government
declared an "emergency," destroyed the profession,
replaced it with the medical industry and introduced ruinous
inflation into the medical economy by imposing Medicare and
flooding it with "dollars," with the inevitable result
that medical costs shot through the roof and "millions are
uninsured."

Of course these are just some of the main examples; there are
many more. By now you get the idea. This is government by
emergency. Millions of Americans know nothing else. Question:
Where did the present destruction of the Constitution come from?
Which emergency inspired the cancellation of our Bill of Rights,
exemplified by such outrages as the "Patriot" Acts the
Congressmen were not allowed to read and know about before they
voted, the cancellation of habeas corpus, the repeal of posse
comitatus, the elimination of all financial privacy, etc., and
soon chips under the skin, at first voluntary, then
compulsory?

It was the War in Iraq, right? El Presidente Jorge W. Boosh
typically is using the war as the excuse. No, Pilgrim, the war in
Iraq certainly has continued and intensified the process, but
that is not where the present, festering horror began. It began
almost forty years ago, in 1969, when Socialist conniver Richard
Nixon launched the latest version of the "War on
Drugs." Remember? Most people do not.

There was an "emergency." THE CHILDREN were at risk.
It is always helpful when THE CHILDREN are at risk because
everybody loves THE CHILDREN. Socialist Nixon, an admirer of
predatory pederast and Communist hero John Maynard Keynes, came
forward with the "solution" - The "War on
Drugs." Big time drug smugglers "launder" money.
They get "dirty" money from their pushers and deposit
it in banks and other financial institutions. When it comes out
the other end, it’s "clean." The only way to
prevent them from doing that – we were told – was to
destroy all financial privacy. The only way to prevent them from
doing that was to require Americans to fill out federal forms
reporting to Washington almost everything they were doing with
their money.

The "War on Drugs" includes turning the cops into
criminals in uniforms by letting them keep part of the take when
they make a narcotics bust. If a small, even minute, amount of
narcotics is found in a car, or in a house, the criminals in
uniform can seize it, even if the owner doesn’t know it is
there. Yes, the victim can sue to get it back, if he can afford
the lawyers after the cops have stolen his funds. You can lose
your money if a dog trained to do so smells something on it, and
there is almost always something on it. You’ve heard many
such horror stories. I don’t need to repeat them here.

Most of the people in prison for drugs are not big time drug
smugglers or even little ones. They are people who were caught
with something, maybe marijuana. The "War on Drugs" has
totally transformed our society. There is a modern version of the
French Revolution’s Reign of Terror, which not surprisingly
has morphed into the present "War on Terror" inspired
by Washington’s destruction of the World Trade Centre in
New York. There could be no "War on Terror" today, even
after 9/11, had the "War on Drugs" not laid the
foundation.

But of course, the inconvenience, even the suffering, would be
worth it if we protect THE CHILDREN, right? We’ll do
anything for THE CHILDREN. So, has the "War on Drugs"
protected them? Has it kept drugs out of our country and off our
streets? To answer that question, we need to compare the
situation before the drug laws to the situation now, almost forty
years into the "War on Drugs."

Before the "War on Drugs," before the drug laws,
there were people who used drugs. There will always be such
people. There were "opium dens." There always will be.
There is nothing you can do to stop them, because, for whatever
destructive, suicidal reason, those people are compelled to hurt
themselves. Much of the time, they wound up dead or in prison for
robbery to finance their "habits." But there was no
"emergency." We are talking about a few people who will
"do drugs" no matter what. By the way, for the record,
I have never puffed the magic dragon even once. My drug use was
confined to taking an aspirin every few years, and now I
don’t even do that. "Hard" drugs – heroin,
cocaine, etc. – are an abomination and so are the monsters
who traffic them.

So, after almost forty years of the "War on Drugs,"
do we have more drugs or less? We have more, right? We have much
more, immeasurably more. The "War" has been an utter
failure. We have lost. More of THE CHILDREN are lost. In fact, it
gets worse. We have so much more drug trafficking because of the
"War on Drugs."

The lesson taught by Prohibition is before us. Remember?
We’ll ban alcohol and people will stop drinking. What a
great idea! Except that Prohibition literally created the
criminal gangs that still plague us, because crime oozes where
opportunity beckons, where it is most lucrative. Hasn’t the
"War on Drugs" done the same thing? The
"difference" is that today’s drug gangs come from
other countries. And hasn’t it created a wonderful
"emergency" for the Communist world government
conspiracy to justify the outrages we took a quick look at?

Ron Paul – Dr. No – has proposed that we
dramatically decrease drug use by dismantling the "War on
Drugs." That is the constitutional position, because the
Constitution nowhere says anything even close to the subject.
It’s certainly none of the federal government’s
business. And, yes, like the phony war in Iraq, it’s easier
to get into these things than to get out of them. We need a
judicious plan.

For instance, not only do we need to end both wars quickly; in
this case, dismantling the lucrative, federal drug machine must
be accompanied by an end to the glamorization of cocaine use by
Hollyweird celebritoids and confrontation of recent
history’s biggest drug smuggling country: not Afghanistan,
but Communist-occupied China, which way back in Vietnam did
everything it could to "hook" American military men on
heroin. (See Stanton Candlin, ‘Psycho-Chemical Warfare:
The Chinese Communist Drug Offensive against the
West’
, New Rochelle, N. Y., Arlington House,
1973.)
