The Pelican Brief- Part 2

Anyone who has seen the movie "The Pelican Brief" knows it's about a little-known theory from a law student (Sandra Bullock) who finds all her friends and contacts being killed off. In that vein, I'd like us all to put on our tinfoil hats and take a look a the 'big picture' for a moment. Several disturbing news items piqued my interest yesterday and I'm going to try my hand at a little theory we'll call the "Pelican Brief- Part 2".

Walter Soehnge is a retired Texas schoolteacher who tried paying off his credit card debt and found himself the target of Homeland Security.

Excerpt from Bob Kerr of the Providence Journal:

The balance on their JCPenney Platinum MasterCard had gotten to an unhealthy level. So they sent in a large payment, a check for $6,522. And an alarm went off. A red flag went up. The Soehnges' behavior was found questionable. And all they did was pay down their debt. They didn't call a suspected terrorist on their cell phone. They didn't try to sneak a machine gun through customs. They just paid a hefty chunk of their credit card balance. And they learned how frighteningly wide the net of suspicion has been cast.

After sending in the check, they checked online to see if their account had been duly credited. They learned that the check had arrived, but the amount available for credit on their account hadn't changed. So Deana Soehnge called the credit-card company. Then Walter called.
"When you mess with my money, I want to know why," he said. They both learned the same astounding piece of information about the little things that can set the threat
sensors to beeping and blinking. They were told, as they moved up the managerial ladder at the call center, that the amount they had sent in was much larger than their normal monthly payment. And if the increase hits a certain percentage higher than that normal payment, Homeland Security has to be notified. And the money doesn't move until the threat
alert is lifted.

Walter called television stations, the American Civil Liberties Union and me. And he went on the Internet to see what he could learn. He learned about changes in something called the Bank Privacy Act.
"The more I'm on, the scarier it gets," he said. "It's scary how easily someone in Homeland Security can get permission to spy." In other words, everything you do now is being watched.

Cell phones, email, bank accounts- we are now officially in a police state. Nothing is safe from the prying eyes of Big Brother now.

Now let's take a look at what happened yesterday with the the Senate Intelligence Committee who voted not to investigate the crimes of President George W. Bush.

Instead, it will create a subcommittee for "oversight" of the illegal eavesdropping program. Senator Snowe was telling Americans as of Friday that yes, she would vote in favor of the Senator Rockefeller's proposal to conduct a full inquiry into the program. Today, she voted against it. Senator Rockefeller had this to say after the committee's vote.

``This committee is basically under control of the White House,'' Rockefeller told reporters after the two-hour meeting today in Washington. ``It's an unprecedented bout of political pressure from the White House.''

Unprecedented indeed. The administration is threatening members of Congress, it is strong-arming them like never before--in short, like a cornered animal it has pulled out every last stop, every last fang and growl to dissuade Congress from investigating this matter. The inference is obvious: the more fervent the desire to cover up, the more heinous the crime.

thank you georgia10- well put

Let's try and put together the pieces of this puzzle;

As any follower of the Bradblog knows, our voting system is in shambles and not to be trusted.

Detention camps are being built by Halliburton for political subversives under the guise of an unexpected influx of immigrants. Do they really think that after another attack on the U.S. immigrants are going to be storming our borders trying to get IN?

Cheney, a founding member of the PNAC and his cohorts have nothing less than world domination as their goal (reminds me of two other countries not so long ago that tried the same thing, namely Germany and Japan).

Not to get too far out there but there are still many disturbing questions about what happened on 9/11 but it certainly does fit the theory quite well.

Let's throw this against the wall and see if it sticks- The PNAC crew has this plan for world domination. How would one go about doing that?

  • First, you would need most of the American people behind you so you'd need something catastrophic to happen. Enter 9/11. I'm not saying they were involved, although that's a possibility and the timing was absolutely perfect with it happening right after King George took office. Perhaps it's just a coincidence, maybe they were only waiting for something bad to happen and got 'lucky'.
  • You would need control of the media as much as possible which has obviously happened for whatever reason.
  • Control of the voting systems would be nice as well and that apparently has happened as well.
  • Add lots of fear and racism to keep the jingoistic Americans on board and build detention camps for the dissidents you can't marginalize by calling them traitors or anti-Americam. Done.
  • You'll need to keep it all under control so you'll need to know exactly who's doing what and the NSA spying program has provided that capability. Done.
  • Control of the courts would be nice to keep all those illegal activities undercover and the piece-by-piece destruction of our rights from being too obvious for Joe Redneck to take notice. Trying- but this may be their downfall. While they have control of the House and Senate, there are still judges left in America who do actually believe in the rule of law although I'm not so sure about the SCOTUS.
When you add all this up together and look at it as a whole, I think a pretty clear picture emerges.

So what comes next?
Well, things ain't going great for BushCo. right now so I predict (tinfoil hat firmly in place) a new attack, quite possibly Los Angeles (why L.A.? have you seen the reaction the wingnuts had to the Oscars?). Whether they will have anything to do with it or allow (or cause) one to happen is anyone's guess. And this attack will have a twofold effect- one to solidify support for attacking Iran and 2) martial law.

Expect to be investigated and/or sent to a detention camp, you damn libruls.

I honestly hope I'm totally wrong about all of this but it's hard to ignore the overwhelming evidence of crimes this administration commits daily- from the secret prisons in Bagram to the neutering of Republicans like Snowe and Roberts who dare to speak out against the King. I love this country as do all liberals but instead of wrapping myself in the flag, I will wrap myself in the Constitution and continue to question the direction this country has turned.

You can now safely remove your tin-foil hats........... and let your head explode.
