Facism is alive and well in America. There’s insercurity and fear in the hearts of Americans which has allowed for wiretapping, torture, foreign wars, electoral fraud, etc. to go unchallenged. Corporate power has become the doctrine of the goverment. Alan Greenspan has recently admitted the true reason for the invasion of Iraq is oil, which has been vehemently denied by the Bush administation. Suspicions still loom about the twin tower collapse and the mysterious implosion of building no. 7. Hilter said “The great masses of people. . .will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one.” We are living a history lesson. I remember the “great question” our teachers posed us: (see The Wave) How could the good people of Germany be so complicant to the evils of the Nazis? It takes a systematic shakedown of institutions, a shock to the nation’s psyche, an enemy to hate, and a superior ideal to fight for. Here’s a definition of fasicism from Robert Paxton: “A form of political behavior marked by obsessive preoccupation with community decline, humiliation or victimhood and by compensatory cults of unity, energy and purity, in which a mass-based party of committed nationalist militants, working in uneasy but effective collaboration with traditional elites, abandons democratic liberties and pursues with redemptive violence and without ethical or legal restraints goals of internal cleansing and external expansion.” America has been primed. If another major shock, as in terrorist attack or stock market crash, were to take place, could America fall off the edge into darkness? The following video is from a comedy show in Australian famous for breaching security at the APEC summit in Sydney dressed up as Bin Ladin. This clip highlights that shadow of fasicism that has been cast over the hearts of some Americans. Its hilarious but should also serve as a moral alarm. Insert quote: learn from past or doomed repeat. Anyways, watch the video but if you don’t chuckle at it and find yourself nodding: go get therapy.
On August 30th, something occurred in the United State as if it were the plot of a sequel to “Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learn To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb”. Six nuclear warheads were loaded onto bombers and flown from North Dakota to Louisiana. This is a violation of protocol, all nuclear weapons are required to be shipped by ground across U.S. soil to avoid problems such as accidental detonations. Only the Commander-in-Chief can authorize nukes be transported by plane. Somebody clearly overstepped the President’s authority, assuming, of course, this was not ordered by him.
As a result of this silly mix up, the Air Force is planning to stand down and have a sit down with all its pilots and personal for some team planning exercises and trust games. “Ok now, bombardiers just fall back and trust your pilots to catch you, that’s it, good.” Then they’ll go over the nuclear weapons procedures, yet again:(, and finish off the day with a big mess dinner plus a little Top Gun soundtrack karaoke. Just like they did on September 11, 2001. “You’ve lost that lovin’ feeling, oh oh that lovin’ feeling, now its gone gone gone, oh oh oh ooooooh!”
ACC orders commandwide standdown Friday

On Sept. 14, flight lines will be very quiet at Air Combat Command bases.
The entire command — about 100,000 active-duty airmen — is standing down training flights and many other operations as part of a command-wide safety day.
Command boss Gen. Ronald Keys ordered the Sept. 14 safety standdown in the wake of the Aug. 30 nuclear incident at Minot Air Force Base, N.D., in which six cruise missiles armed with nuclear warheads were loaded onto a B-52H and then flown to Barksdale Air Force Base, La., without anyone on the ground or bomber realizing the nuclear weapons were on the plane. It was not until the B-52H was parked at Barksdale that ground crews discovered the cruise missiles were carrying real warheads.
Command spokesman Maj. Tom Crosson said wing commanders would determine how their units review operations and safety procedures and checklists.
Just how serious Keys takes the lapse of regulations at Minot is reflected in the fact that the safety stand-down is the first commandwide safety day in recent memory. In the past, the command has singled out specific types of aircraft for safety days and in 1997 the Department of Defense held a departmentwide safety review day.
Watch Stanley Kubrick’s cold war black comedy classic “Dr. Stangelove or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb”. Its a very funny movie. However, knowing such mistake are happening in reality right now, the film feels more like a chilling documentary.
Gook luck and good night folks
A mystery trader risks losing around $1 billion dollars after placing 245,000 put options on the Dow Jones Eurostoxx 50 index, leading many analysts to speculate that a stock market crash preceded by a new 9/11 style catastrophe could take place within the next month. The anonymous trader only stands to make money if the market crashes by a third to a half before September 21st, which is when the put options expire. Dow Jones Financial News first reported on the story. The trader stands to make around $2 billion from their investment should an event trigger a market crash before the third week in September. Such a cataclysmic jolt could only happen as a result of two factors, China dumping its vast dollar reserves in reaction to the subprime mortgage collapse, which it has threatened to do, or a massive terror attack on the same scale or larger than 9/11. 9/11 itself was foreshadowed by unprecedented put options that were placed on United and American Airlines. Though the Securities and Exchange Commission refused to reveal who placed the options, private researchers traced the investments back to the Deutsche Bank owned Banker’s Trust, which was formerly headed by then Executive Director of the CIA, Buzzy Krongard. Put options on Morgan Stanley and Merrill Lynch, two of the World Trade Center’s most prominent occupants, also spiked in the days before 9/11. News of the suspicious trades is dovetailed by the comments of Former US Treasury secretary Larry Summers yesterday, who told ABC News that the risk of a recession in the U.S. was greater that at any time since 9/11.
