The American Empire On
by Liz Michael Copyright,
they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to
make war with him?" ---- Revelation
There is a conspiracy theory, which has made the rounds in many circles for many
years, that there are forces within the US government that are engineering
events such as the 9-11 incident, the Oklahoma City bombing, and so forth, to
implement this great "Master Plan" to implement a totalitarian
government. This government is part and parcel of a much larger effort by the
New World Order, the United Nations, the Illuminati, the Queen of England in
league with the Vatican, the multinational corporations, or whomever the
scapegoat of the day or the movement, is. Most of the conspiracy theorists
present this as if it is a fait accompli which cannot be undone. For all intents
and purposes, these people WORSHIP this coming leviathan which they see as
The truth may actually prove a lot more discomfiting for a lot more people when
The truth is that the American government is in near collapse. The truth is that
the recent attacks on the United States are NOT the result of the Bush family
conspiring with the Clintons and other state liberals to coalesce power. The
truth is likely that outside powers, far from trying to CREATE a totalitarian
USA, are trying to remove the USA from its current position as world military
and economic superpower, and would attempt to DESTROY any totalitarian USA, just
like the Soviet Union collapsed and Nazi Germany was disassembled.
The powers that be have lost control
All the various moves you are seeing now are not the moves of someone "in
control". They are the moves of a group of people that have suddenly
discovered they have lost control. And are desperately trying to get it back.
Totalitarians in control wouldn't be intimidated by a little anthrax spread
around Washington DC. Totalitarians would stand and fight. The Congress did not
stand and fight. They RAN, and they ran like scalded dogs. The rest of the
government also ran. These are the actions, not of people in control of a master
plan, but of people in panic: people who have suddenly discovered they DON'T
control what's going on.
Is the CIA having been hit with anthrax a sign of control? Let me repeat this:
the terrorizers of the U.S. government HIT the Central Intelligence Agency. This
is the agency that is supposed to know about these things before they happen.
This is also the agency that was told by several sources that the 9-11 event was
imminent, but either ignored the threat, or could not react to it in time. Do
you REALLY THINK they LET themselves be hit?
Gray Davis, in an incredible moment of grandstanding, demonstrated more of this
lack of control, by announcing a terrorist threat....but not quite a verified
one. Just a rumor. Something even the FBI is now disavowing. So now we have all
the king's men scrambling around trying to catch...they have no idea
what...trying to stop.....they have no idea who. In other words, they are
stumped. They're snookered. They're outsmarted.
A Sacramento journalist was taken into custody by police at Los Angeles
International Airport and was forced to destroy photos he had been taking by an
over-zealous National Guardsman. Totalitarians are not usually afraid to have
their pictures taken. Recently, a key member of the Green Party was denied entry
onto an aircraft, because she was a member of the Green Party attending a peace
conference. They have tried to blame the anthrax incidents on everyone from Al-Queda,
to Iraq, to racist domestic militias, to libertarian militias, to pagans: and
its only a matter of time before they try and blame it on leftist activists,
unions, and the religious right, or as Clinton did with the Murrah Building
bombing, "right wing radical talk show hosts".
These people are not only afraid of foreign terrorists. These people are afraid
of you and me. They are afraid of the press. They are afraid of the political
activists. They are afraid of the pacifists. They are afraid of their own
shadows. They are not in control of anything.
When the going gets tough, the tough go shopping?
Now, this "War On Terror" could have gone a different way. After
September 11th, there could have been a call for the militia, which is the whole
people, and not a handful of backwoods rednecks as is the romantic ideal (not
that there's anything WRONG with being a backwoods redneck), a call for the
whole people to be on alert, to become armed, to learn self-defense and battle
techniques, and to train to do things like protect the bridges, the nuclear
plants, the borders, the planes. That did not happen. We could have been told to
prepare shelters against nuclear or biological attack. We could have been told
to stock up on supplies, on first aid kits, and train in CPR and medical rescue
techniques. To buy guns. To shore up our vehicles for potential emergency use or
Instead, what did Rudy Giuliani ask us to do to save New York? What did George
W. Bush ask us to do to save the country.
They asked us to shop.
Rudy asked us to "come see a Broadway show" even though we couldn't
drive into the city without a second passenger, and had to go through roadblocks
and search points more dense than those at the Mexican border.
The President asked us to fly in planes that he does not fly in, because they
are not safe enough for him to do so. Instead of asking us to save, invest,
stock up on supplies, he wants us to continue engaging in pointless consumption
and satisfying our vanities. Excuse me, Mr. President, but didn't you just say
we're at WAR? Didn't you just appoint a new office of Homeland Security because
you knew we were going to be under imminent attack by Al-Queda agents in our own
country? Yet we're supposed to go on as if 9-11 never happened? We're supposed
to go shopping?
Wartime is a time when a little austerity is in order. The only people during
war who would spend like there's no tomorrow are people who expect to die soon.
If the American economy is dependent on such frivolous spending, then it
basically is already screwed.
Anti-terrorism bills the death warrant of America as a world power
The Congress of the United States issued a series of bills in an attempt to
regain control, the most threatening of which is the one using the acronym of
the PATRIOT Act. The legislation is some of the most liberty-infringing
legislation that has been passed in many a decade. President George W. Bush
dutifully signed them all without so much as a whimper: in fact, he was glad to
do so. At that point, whether he realizes it or not, George W. Bush signed the
death warrant of the American Empire.
It is the death warrant of the American Empire for several reasons. First of
all, it has coalesced a small but important coalition, on the left, the right
and the center, AGAINST the United States government. And that coalition just
happens to be the people who are most concerned about liberty and freedom. The
President and the Congress has basically just told every person concerned about
liberty and freedom in America, from the ACLU activist and the WTO-NAFTA
protester, to the religious conservative and the libertarian free marketer, to
go to hell. In other words, they essentially told the real American patriots
that they can bug off. Liberty and freedom is not important. Security is the
prime directive. Sit down, shut up, wave your flag and do as you are told.
They are living the warning of Benjamin Franklin, that those who trade liberty
for security deserve neither. The tragedy for them is, that government will be a
bigger target than ever now.
The "War On Terror" will be lost
The second reason it is the death warrant to the Empire is that it ensures a
loss in the War on Terror. Insures a loss? Yep. Why? How?
It doesn't matter how well American troops do overseas. It doesn't matter if
they kill Osama bin Laden. It doesn't matter how many Al-Queda agents they
destroy abroad. The real measure of the success or failure of the War on Terror
will be to what extent the American mainland will still be standing after all is
said and done.
That brings me to the third reason the American Empire is about to die.
Immigration policy. Out of the hundreds of new policies implemented in the last
few months to ensure the safety of everyone, the most obvious one that would
have actually done some good would have been to close the borders and revoke the
visas and green cards of everyone having come into this country from a Muslim
country. That one act would have prevented more terrorists from coming in, and
it would have provided a mechanism for deporting 95% of potential terrorists
still in this country.
Instead, we invite Syrians in to take more flying lessons and are going to grant
Taliban-sympathetic Pakistanis carte blanche to come here and engage terror.
Because this third reason has barely been addressed, the agents who will
continue to physically destroy America in future months and years, as well as
kill millions, are already here, and will continue to be here. Eventually they
will perform their task. These terrorists will eventually devastate the American
mainland. They will do it regardless of how successful we are in prosecuting the
war abroad. In fact, it is entirely possible that the more we punish Al-Queda
abroad, the more likely the terrorists here will devastate us.
The American people will never forgive the government and the agencies that are
going to allow this to happen. They are going to turn on them and destroy
whatever is left of them that Al-Queda has not already destroyed by then. Being
Democrat or Republican is not going to matter because both of them let it
happen, and both of them will rightly share the guilt.
FBI shows more evidence of having lost control
Now, occasionally, the king's men have caught some of these people. For example,
the Millennium Bomb plot was foiled. But they cannot catch them all. Not in
time. It took them seventeen years to catch the last big mail terrorist, the
Unabomber, and he was one guy living in a shack. They got lucky when a no
license plate vehicle turned up Timothy McVeigh: but they still haven't caught
most of McVeigh's coconspirators. They have one thousand foreigners in jail over
the 9-11 incident: the only ones who have been charged have been charged with
extremely Mickey Mouse stuff like "lying about having met" one of the
terrorists, or lying on an application for something or another. This indicates
to me that law enforcement doesn't have anything approaching a clue on this. The
arrest of a thousand people on nothing is another sign of desperation, and a
sure sign of having lost control: and it is a sign of tyranny that many of us
refuse to tolerate in what is supposed to be a free country.
Governments are not perpetual and eternal. I know to many who work for
government or depend upon government that they seem so. Many governments and
many leaders talk as if they are everlasting. Hitler talked about a
"thousand year Reich" which ultimately lasted only 12. The government
of one of the mightiest powers of the 20th century, the Soviet Union, failed to
survive to see the 21st.
Whether the United States survives as an entity, whether we see it resurrected
under the original intent of the founders, whether we see a fragmentation into
several states and regions, whether we see a reassertion of former nations such
as the Confederate States of America or the Indian nations, I do not know. But
of one thing I am sure: the Imperial World Superpower of the United States is
finished. It could survive perhaps slightly beyond the Bush Presidency, but
probably not long after that.
I just pray that most of the American people are not killed along with their
What can we do?
Many of you are violently disagreeing with what I just wrote. Many others are
asking, "well, what then?" If you are not asking it now, you surely
will in the future as more terrorist incidents devastate America.
You have to come to the understand that in its essence, America is not its
government. America is not its flag. America is a concept, a concept that
enshrines liberty and freedom. America is also a people. There are many things
which you can do to preserve the America that deserves preservation.
1. Make very huge mental adjustments
It doesn't matter what your politics are. It doesn't matter what your religion
is. Whatever they are you need to take them seriously. The primary enemy.... we
have secondary enemies, for certain, and I will offer suspects, but the primary
enemy is Al-Queda. Most of America is centered on the concept of money. It may
shock you to hear this free market capitalist tell you to not obsess over money.
Your enemy carries with him a religious fervor which will cause him to do many
things to ruin you. And while I do not believe Allah trumps Yaheveh, and do not
know if he trumps any other gods or not, you had better believe that Allah
trumps Mammon. In this environment, if your god is Mammon, you are going to lose
You may very well sell your enemy the rope with which he hangs you. He did it on
Most people base their politics on the assumption that the government will
always be here. I submit to you that if you really care about your issue
concerns, you prepare for the day when the government cannot or will not enforce
them. Develop ways of caring for the environment which DON'T involve enforcement
by a government thug. Develop a safety net which DOESN'T depend on the
government. Develop crime fighting methods that DON'T depend on the king's men
being there to do it for you. Develop disaster and rescue efforts that assume
the government cannot act, and that you will have to do it yourself. When al
hell breaks loose, not only will FEMA NOT be a tyrannical agency set to take
away all your rights, as is the popular myth circulating in patriot circles -
FEMA will likely not be there AT ALL.
The government will soon NOT be there to help. They likely won't be there at
all. And you had better be ready for that.
2. Civil Defense
Become the militia, and organize neighborhood defense forces. Buy guns. Stock up
on food, water, first aid, and survival supplies, and construct viable shelters.
Develop plans for defending vital services such as hospitals, power plants,
water resources, and food. Develop evacuation plans and have them ready to go at
a moments notice. Determine what your "bug out" territories are. Learn
to fight. Get in shape. Stay healthy and learn about self medicine, for when the
doctors won't be available.
This is the fatal mistake that both George W. Bush and his Democratic loyal
opposition made: they failed to call up and muster civilian defense. There are
cities which are going to be vaporized because of that fatal mistake. There are
environmental resources that are going to be devastated because of that fatal
mistake. You and your community, however, don't have to follow them all over a
Don't like guns? Believe in gun control? Get over it. We're at war and you're a
target. In war, soldiers have guns, and you are one, like it or not. Learn how
to defend yourself and your family from wild animals and thugs or watch them
become worm food. You're a pacifist? Al-Queda isn't honoring the wishes of
conscientious objectors today, sorry.
3. Resist the tyranny
Many of you will get this one right away. Resist the tyranny. Live as a free
person. You don't have to be told. You easily see that the only way to make the
tyranny ultimately go away is to refuse to participate in it.
Others of you will ask, but wouldn't this be "unpatriotic"?
Have you ever heard of the principle of "tough love". Basically,
sometimes you have to let your children, or your friend, go, and let them suffer
the consequences of their actions, in order to save them. Because enabling them
to continue taking the wrong path will only in the long run get them, and maybe
you, killed. Study any twelve step program for validation of this.
This is what has to be done with the federal government, and many of the state
and local governments. They are our children. We created them. But they are
errant children. They are children who have become thugs and terrorists. They're
not REALLY the enemy. But in order to rescue them, we may have to treat them
like the enemy. We may even have to kill them, as per the Toraic proscription as
to excessively errant children. We may have to shun them, as per the New
Testament proscription as to excessively errant and unrepentant church members.
Resisting the tyranny means many things. It means not paying taxes. It means
trimming your reliance on the state, and upon its identity documents, as much as
you can practically get away with. It means using jury nullification to disrupt
their trials. It means using every trick you can think of to disrupt their
Don't talk to the FBI. If you talk to the FBI, it gives them the chance of
prosecuting you because they think you lied to them. So just don't talk to them.
There are a thousand people in federal detention centers as we speak, NONE of
them having been charged with any crime of any consequence. It can happen to
you, too. Don't talk to them. Tell them to go to hell.
Do you think that is treasonous talk? Well, the greatest President we ever had,
one Thomas Jefferson, said that when the government fears the people, there is
liberty. But when the people fear the government, there is tyranny. So
immediately, I say to you now. Stop fearing the government. Make them fear you.
Make them mortified to come into your neighborhood, terrified to approach your
door and knock on it, frightened to stop your car and ask for your license.
Remember that these civil liberties violations started with the government. The
plans they have to invade our privacy, take our property, deprive us of liberty
and freedom of travel, were initiated BY the government, not by freedom lovers.
THEY started it. If we love freedom and liberty, we must fight for it. We must
fight ALL tyranny, whether it comes from Osama bin Laden or Saddam Hussein, or
whether it comes from agents of our own government.
Many of you have varied opinions on George W. Bush, ranging from the
"Antichrist" to the best President we could have at a time like this.
I don't think President Bush is a BAD man. But I do think he has made a fatal
mistake. A mistake which he could undo tomorrow by executive order: but I don't
see it happening. Having done this, he has failed to do his constitutional duty,
and does not deserve support for his current domestic policy. And don't you dare
gloat, Tom Daschle. Mr. Bush hasn't done anything wrong that you haven't also
done, and nearly every member of Congress, Democrat and Republican, with you.
And definitely, don't say "I told you so", Mr. Gore. Most of our
present dilemma happened because of events set in motion on your watch and due
to your incompetence and your tolerance of a corrupt administration.
4. Stand for public office
Every single freedom loving patriot needs to stand for public office now. They
need to stand in every party: Democrat and Republican, Libertarian and Green,
Reform and Constitutionalist. There are really just two parties now: Patriots
and Traitors. Washington DC, and most state governments, are "one
party" operations and it is the wrong party. There are no more chances to
save the United States of America by the electoral process. This is the last
chance. If you all don't stand now, there will be no more chances. If you fail
to choose to work with ballots now, you guarantee you will have to work with
bullets later. You may have to anyway: but do you really want to see an American
5. Homeschool your kids
I don't say this lightly. The public school systems in most communities are
largely beyond hope. They are not teaching values. They are teaching sheepery,
to go along to get along. They are literally terrorizing kids and parents alike
with "zero tolerance" tyranny over guns, drugs, t-shirts, and free
thought. Screw them. Whatever your values are, now is the time to teach them to
your children. I can assure you they will not learn them in public school. They
will also not learn "how" to think in public school, as opposed to
what to think.
Also, public schools are going to become a very dangerous place. Osama bin Laden
has already told us that he will attack our children. What better way to attack
our children than at school, all of which have been declared "arms-free
zone" enforced by such zero tolerance tyranny that you cannot even point a
finger in a mock game of cops and robber without suffering persecution. Such
schools have in effect sent an engraved invitation to Al-Queda terrorists which
says: HIT ME, OUR KIDS AREN'T PROTECTED BY ANYONE. The law of the jungle will
assert itself here. They will attack our schools. They will kill our children,
just as sure as any wilderness predator goes after the young, the weak, and the
You think they won't? Then you must have forgotten that the Ryder truck of
Timothy McVeigh was parked right below a day care center, which McVeigh knew
6. Reorient your economy
The reason this country is in as much economic jeopardy as we are in is that we
have forsaken industrial jobs and sent them overseas, and we have replaced them
with Pizza Hut Delivery and a lot of service sector jobs.
I want to suggest that now is the time for everyone to tighten their belts. Now
is the time to make economic purchasing decisions based on needs and not on
wants. And we should all orient our economies and our jobs and businesses to
things which people are going to need regardless of the economy. What would
those be? Food. Shelter. Basic clothing. Medical supplies. Basic transportation.
Information. Communications. Energy. Defense. Waste disposal. Less emphasis
should be put on "toys" and more emphasis on utility: in other words,
if you're going to dabble in toys, make them toys relevant for survival. Also
more emphasis needs to be placed on things which can be recycled and
refurbished, and less on "throw away" stuff.
Moreover, we need to strengthen our mutual survivability by getting as many of
those things locally as we possibly can.
Also, if you are investors, you need to reorient your investments so that they
do two things. Number one, so they are not dependent on the US dollar, and two,
so they are reflective of material and necessity industries and not pleasure and
service industries, because the material and necessity industries are more
likely to survive both a catastrophic series of events and the collapse of the
Additionally, get mobile. Mobility may be the key to survival. If you're into
cars, I would suggest classic cars as a hobby. Why? In the event of a
nuclear-generated electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) wiping out electrical devices in
an area, classic cars which use an older technology may be at a premium, and you
may be able to escape in that old clunker when the new stuff doesn't work any
The odds are very great that we are fighting a lot more people than Al-Queda.
Very likely, Saddam Hussein is a root cause of this and future violence. For
those of you who believe in Biblical prophecies, Hussein considers himself a
modern day "Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon". You ought to make
yourself familiar with what is prophesied to be destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar, the
Babylonians, the Assyrians, or the Chaldeans, all which could correspond to
modern day Iraq.
Moreover, I also pose a question: who benefits from our destruction? Who gains
from our removal as an economic and military superpower. Certainly usual
suspects like China and Russia might. Islamic fundamentalism could well spread,
with nuclear weapons falling into the hands of people willing to declare Jihad
against all non-Muslims, surely a dangerous peril to the world. As well though,
the biggest entity to gain from an American dissolution is the European Union,
who would probably be propelled into the position of "economic savior"
of the world economy, with the Euro, now a useless currency unit, possibly
propelled into worldwide prominence.
Some points to cover in case people are mad at me. There is nothing wrong with
waving the flag or displaying it. There is nothing wrong with writing "God
Bless America" and singing patriotic songs, even in a school. What I am
saying is, though, that it is insufficient. Real patriotism is not emotion. Real
patriotism is real action to protect the homefront. Writing "God Bless
America" on your window is not going to deter an Al-Queda attack. Only
preparation and making yourself a "hard target" will dissuade them.
Real patriotism also does not compromise with tyranny. Real patriotism does not
accept the tyranny of the federal government to fight the tyranny of Al-Queda.
Real patriotism fights both. As Mr. Bush stated, freedom itself was attacked.
And freedom will be defended. From all enemies, foreign and domestic. And if the
federal government, or any other government, is found to be attacking freedom
and liberty, for whatever reason, they not only SHALL be treated just as we
would treat Al-Queda terrorists, but they SHOULD be treated the same. If Mr.
Bush and his supporters have any problems with this, they should realize that
the President set these parameters himself. He did not say America was attacked
and shall be defended. He didn't say the federal government was attacked. He
said "freedom itself" was attacked. We are fighting FOR freedom, and
if that places us as an enemy of the federal government or any other government,
then so be it.
For those of you who prefer anything else to freedom itself, be it security, be
it commerce, be it party loyalty, whatever it is, the words of Samuel Adams
wonderfully express my sentiment:
"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude
better than the animated contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask
not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.
May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our
