MEGATRENDS: Naomi Wolf on Palin    
 Naomi Wolf on Palin32 comments
I realized early on with horror what I was seeing in Governor Palin: the continuation of the Rove-Cheney cabal, but this time without restraints. I heard her echo Bush 2000 soundbites ("the heart of America is on display") and realized Bush's speechwriters were writing her -- not McCain's -- speeches. I heard her tell George Bush's lies -- not McCain's -- to the American people, linking 9/11 to Iraq. I heard her make fun of Barack Obama for wanting to prevent the torture of prisoners -- this is Rove-Cheney's enthusiastic S and M, not McCain's, who, though he shamefully colluded in the 2006 Military Tribunals Act, is also a former prisoner of war and wrote an eloquent Newsweek piece in 2005 opposing torture. I saw that she was even styled by the same skillful stylist (neutral lipstick, matte makeup, dark colors) who turned Katharine Harris from a mall rat into a stateswoman and who styles all the women in the Bush orbit -- but who does not bother to style Cindy McCain.

Then I saw and heard more. Palin is embracing lawlessness in defying Alaskan Legislature subpoenas -- this is what Rove-Cheney, and not McCain, believe in doing. She uses mafia tactics against critics, like the police commissioner who was railroaded for opposing handguns in Alaskan battered women's shelters -- Rove's style, not McCain's. I realized what I was seeing.

Reports confirmed my suspicions: Palin, not McCain, is the FrankenBarbie of the Rove-Cheney cabal. The strategy became clear. Time magazine reported that Rove is "dialed in" to the McCain campaign. Rove's protege Steve Schmidt is now campaign manager. And Politico reported that Rove was heavily involved in McCain's vice presidential selection. Finally a new report shows that there are dozens of Bush and Rove operatives surrounding Sarah Palin and orchestrating her every move.

What's the plan? It is this. McCain doesn't matter. Reputable dermatologists are discussing the fact that in simply actuarial terms, John McCain has a virulent and life-threatening form of skin cancer. It is the elephant in the room, but we must discuss the health of the candidates: doctors put survival rates for someone his age at two to four years. I believe the Rove-Cheney cabal is using Sarah Palin as a stalking horse, an Evita figure, to put a popular, populist face on the coming police state and be the talk show hostess for the end of elections as we know them. If McCain-Palin get in, this will be the last true American election. She will be working for Halliburton, KBR, Rove and Cheney into the foreseeable future -- for a decade perhaps -- a puppet "president" for the same people who have plundered our treasure, are now holding the US economy hostage and who murdered four thousand brave young men and women in a way of choice and lies.

How, you may ask, can I assert this? How can I argue, as I now do, that there is actually a war being ramped up against US citizens and our democracy and that Sarah Palin is the figurehead and muse for that war?

Look at the RNC. This is supposed to be McCain's America. But you see the unmistakable theatre of Rove's S and M imagery -- and you see stages eight, nine and ten of the steps to a dictatorship as I outlined them in The End of America. Preemptive arrest? Abusive arrest? "Newly released footage, which was buried to avoid confiscation, shows riot cops arresting and abusing a giant group of people for nothing."

Journalists were arrested -- for reporting. Amy Goodman and ABC producers were arrested. Jane Hamsher of Firedoglake and others were forced to lie face down as armed agents tied their hands behind their backs. The riot police wore the black S&M gear of the Rovian fantasy life and carried the four foot batons cops carry in North Korea. All this is not John McCain's imagery or strategy: it is Karl Rove's.

In McCain-Palin's America, citizens who are protesting are being charged as terrorists. This means that a violent war had been declared on American citizens. A well known reporter leaked to me on background that St Paul police had dressed as protesters and, dressed in Black -- shades of the Blackshirts of 1920 -- infiltrated protest groups. There were also phalanxes of men in black wearing balaclavas, linking arms and behaving menacingly -- alleged "anarchists." Let me tell you, I have been on the left for thirty years and you can't get three lefties to wear the same t-shirt to a rally, let alone link arms and wear identical face masks: these are not our guys. Agent Provocateurs framing protesters and calling protest "terrorism" constitutes step ten of a police state:

"In what appears to be the first use of criminal charges under the 2002 Minnesota version of the Federal Patriot Act, Ramsey County Prosecutors have formally charged 8 alleged leaders of the RNC Welcoming Committee with Conspiracy to Riot in Furtherance of Terrorism… [they] 7 1/2 years in prison under the terrorism enhancement charge which allows for a 50% increase in the maximum penalty."

"Paid, confidential informants… infiltrated the RNCWC on behalf of law enforcement. They allege that members of the group sought to kidnap delegates to the RNC, assault police officers with firebombs and explosives, and sabotage airports in St. Paul. Evidence released to date does not corroborate these allegations with physical evidence or provide any other evidence for these allegations than the claims of the informants. Based on past abuses of such informants by law enforcement, the National Lawyers Guild is concerned that such police informants have incentives to lie and exaggerate threats of violence and to also act as provocateurs in raising and urging support for acts of violence."

Under the Palin-Rove police state, you will see escalating infringements on your access to a free internet :

"Sarah Palin was baptized at Wasilla Assembly of God…Last Sunday our research team released a video, a ten-minute mini-documentary, focusing on the Wasilla Assemblies of God and the video seemed on the verge of a massive "viral" breakthrough when YouTube pulled it down, citing 'inappropriate content'. At the point the video was censored by YouTube it had been viewed by almost 160,000 people. The short of it is that YouTube has censored a video documentary that appeared to be close to having an effect on a hard fought and contentious American presidential election…"

Under the coming Palin-Rove police state, you will witness the plans now underway to bring Iraqi troops to patrol the streets of our nation. This is not McCain's fantasy: it is Rove's and Cheney's.

Under the Palin-Rove police state, there will be no further true elections. Mark Crispin Miller has done sensational and under-reported investigating t o establish that -- as I warned -- indeed the GOP staffers on the US Senate Judiciary Committee have been .

The evidence is also buried on the Website of the Majority House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence .

WASHINGTON -- Republican staff members of the US Senate Judiciary Commitee infiltrated opposition computer files for a year, monitoring secret strategy memos and periodically passing on copies to the media, Senate officials told The Globe. >From the spring of 2002 until at least April 2003, members of the GOP committee staff exploited a computer glitch that allowed them to access restricted Democratic communications witho ut a password. Trolling through hundreds of memos, they were able to read talking points and accounts of private meetings discussing which judicial nominees Democrats would fight -- and with what tactics.

-- "Senate panel's GOP staff spied on Democrats " By Charlie Savage, Globe Staff | January 22, 2004

Do you think that spying like this will ever end under a Palin-Rove regime? Dream on. If she and McCain are elected, then every single strategy memo and speech and debate prep note from every opposition candidate from now and on into forever will be read by the regime in power while it is still in the computers of the challengers.

Under the Palin-Rove police state, citizens will be targeted with state cyberterrorism. Bruce Fein of the American Freedom Agenda, a former Reagan official, warned me three years ago that the Bush team went after a Republican who had crossed them through cyberstalking: they messed with his email, messed with his phones and I believe messed with his bank account -- he became a cyber-pariah, unemployable and haunted. With modern technology, there really is less place to hide from the state than there was in East Germany in the Cold War era. I remember feeling a chill: of course. That is the wave of the future once we breach the protections around citizens of FISA and the fourth amendment. That way lies the abyss for us all.

Am I trying to scare you? I am. I am trying to scare you to death and ask you to scare your Republican and independent friends most of all. How do you know when it is war on citizens? When there are mass arrests, journalists are jailed, the opposition is infiltrated, rights are stripped and leaders start to ignore the rule of law.

Almost everyone I work with on projects related to this campaign for liberty has been experiencing computer harassment: emails are stripped, messages disappear. That's not all: people's bank accounts are being tampered with: wire transfers to banks vanish in midair. I personally keep opening bank accounts that are quickly corrupted by fraud. Money vanishes. Coworkers of mine have to keep opening new email accounts as old ones become infected. And most disturbingly to me personally is the mail tampering I have both heard of and experienced firsthand. My tax returns vanished from my mailbox. All my larger envelopes arrive ripped straight open apparently by hand. When I show the postman, he says "That's impossible." Horrifyingly to me is the impact on my family. My childrens' report cards are returned again and again though perfectly addressed; their invitations are turned back; and my daughters many letters from camp? Vanished. All of them. Not one arrived. Try explaining that to a smart thirteen year old. Try explaining it in a way that still makes her feel secure and comfortable.

I am not telling you this because it's about my life. I am telling you this because it is about your life -- whoever you are, Conservative or Liberal, independent or evangelical. Your politics will not protect you in a police state. History shows that nothing protects you in a police state. This is not about my fear and anxiety: it is about what awaits you and everyone you love unless you see this for what it is:

Scharansky divided nations into "fear societies" and "free societies." Make no mistake: Sarah "Evita" Palin is Rove and Cheney's cosmetic rebranding of their fascist push: she will help to establish a true and irreversible "fear society" in this once free once proud nation. For God's sake, do not let her; do not let them.

I'm rather glad to see this lefty shaking in her boots over Sara "Evita" Palin. I can't in all honesty say that I agree with Ms. Wolf and I feel it behooves her to take a closer look at that 'other candidate.' Such as this one, for instance:

There happens to be a rather interesting, and crucial, video of Obamas' Freikorps that, if you can do video, I'm sure you'll love to see... Get it at the Asylum. Well, no real need to travel that far here is the link:

And here you get the militarization of the police forces under the tune of 'When Johnney Comes Marching Home Again, Hurrah, Hurray!'

Who benefits from the Afghan Opium Trade?

Afghanistan supplies 92% of the global heroin market. The multibillion dollar proceeds of this lucrative contraband accrue to business syndicates, organized crime, banking & financial institutions.

Now check it out from the beginning with outfits like the wonderful British East India Company and their sister Dutch East India Company. Same policy, same people, same old routes. Different masks is all...

6 Oct 2008 @ 17:32 by vaxen : No...
Martha. I'm an American National and do not belong to the fiat government in Washington D.C., known as 'the Democracy,' nor do I support it. I know who actually runs it and am opting for a better world not run by pirates and thieves. When given choices like a McCain or an Obama the only choice a citizen of 'Washington D.C.',
or what is known as the United States Corporation (cf.The Organic Act of 1871), has is not to vote for these liars at all!

All voting does, for the unaware, is register you as a 14th Amendment citizen of that 10 square miles albeit surreptitiously and unbeknownst to you. It's the way they do business in this world by fiat, deceit, lies, and innuendo as well as hidden contracts you never knew you made until...

Congress has no jurisdiction over an American National also known as a Sovereign cf. "The Declaration of Independence."
The whole thing is a swindle and I will not be a part of it kowingly.

I agree with you about all the bashing and I think that, in and of itself, should offer you a clue as to who these people really are. It is a smoke screen. My fellow countrymen have been duped in every way. Sad but true. There will come a reckoning. That you can take to the bank.

The people behind the deception are well versed in the art of deceit and they've been doing it for thousands of years in this, and other, worlds. Their end draweth nigh thus they are stepping up their hideous program. Of course 'there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'

Be safe Martha, study diligently, and do not be duped! Cheers to you too and courage and all things good.  

7 Oct 2008 @ 02:04 by a-d : Thank you,Vax,
for your little Intro Explanation and the article! They together cleared up something I never seen this clear:"How" the GAME is rigged!.... That little sarcasm in the article, for instance: Sarah "Evita" She is NOT Evita and is not meant to be so either --other than on the surface..., so to speak...)Palin... Boyyyy, did that stand out and TALK MILES of Truth about History!...and the word Muse...ahhh...just the right word for Sarah's "Flavor". I can see it now!...the pretty Stage Face, the Official Face, to put the right twist on all the activities the Ugly-Faces-Behind-the-Scenes, think up for all us Gullible Ones!... It will work like a Charm!... Sarah's pretty, Adooorable little Face presenting the back stabbs as being "for our own Best Good" sh---!... I know the Argentinian Peasants (among People in and of so many other so called Poor Countries) could tell America some "Things"...cozz they know exactly what it will all be like!
Thanks again for this Eye Opener!  

7 Oct 2008 @ 02:12 by ursula : Sounds paranoid to me
and yes, it is Palin bashing and flimsy junk at best. How about, as Martha wrote, focusing on some of her positive aspects? Like how the people in Alaska are HAPPY she's their governor because of what she's done for them.  

7 Oct 2008 @ 02:26 by vaxen : I introduced...
this article here, not because I do not like Sara Palin, but so that people who might not see it elsewhere could examine the far left's 'opinion,' as voiced by Naomi Wolf who is only one of the sheeple wearing Wolf's clothing. I could actually care less about any of it and, yes, it is the ultimate in para-noia but worse... it is agitprop of the most sordid and worst kind.

As their 'hold' on reality slips deeper and deeper into their self manufactured oblivion they are bankrupt for words thus must strike out at all who approach an understanding of what it means to be human. Sadly, I view Sarah as just another puppet, a last minute surge, which will get them no where. The CAT is out of the bag and the term CAT is a technical one so...

Thankyou all for reading through the maze and voicing your opinions in the form of your comments here. I appreciate that very much. As the new year approaches the agitprop will grow as well in consequence. Then will come the weeding of the garden.

My guess is that YOU yourself belong to the group of the Evil Ones, who just loooove to see a World with nothing but the Upstairs/Downstairs Way of life!.. I don't expect you to admit Anything, let alone acknowledge to your self & your Heart(=Conscience), that that is what's hiding in the Dark recesses there, but your comment betrays you to the rest of us Worlds Population with the exception of you & your Best Friend M. -and maybe a few other Lost Souls here & there!... ) because it is soooo out of any realistic relation to ACTUAL History!... not the Official Propaganda, the one you Gals love and "BELIEVE IN"...but the real REAL!

The Sun's career of usefulness and beneficence in bringing light and life to Northland is seldom varied. Occasionally he steps from his accustomed path to give important information to his suffering worshipers. For example, when the Star and the Moon refuse the information, the Sun tells the Virgin Mariatta, where her golden infant lies bidden.

"Yonder is thy golden infant,
There thy holy babe lies sleeping,
Hidden to his belt in water,
Hidden in the reeds and rushes."

Again when the devoted mother of the reckless hero, Lemminkainen, (chopped to pieces by the Sons Of Nana, as in the myth of Osiris) was raking together the fragments of his body from the river of Tuoui, and fearing that the sprites of the Death-stream might resent her intrusion, the Sun, in answer to her entreaties, throws his Powerful rays upon the dreaded Shades, and sinks them into a deep sleep, while the mother gathers up the fragments of her son's body in safety. This rune of the Kalevala is particularly interesting as showing the belief that the dead can be restored to life through the blissful light of heaven.

Läksin minä kesäyönä käymään
siihen laaksohon, missä kuuntelin päivää,
kussa lintuset laulaa, metsäkanatkin ne pauhaa,
ja mun sydämeni etsi lepoa ja rauhaa.

Then the aged Väinämöinen
Spoke aloud his songs of magic,
And a flower-crowned birch grew upward,
Crowned with flowers, and leaves all golden,
And its summit reached to heaven,
To the very clouds uprising.
Then he sang his songs of magic,
And he sang a moon all shining,
Sang the moon to shine forever
In the pine-tree's emerald summit
Sang the Great Bear in its branches.

To be cute and a Good Mother and in general a good person, which I am convinced Sarah P. to be; that alone is not enough! (her cute looks are what she has in common with Evita Peron, but that is where it all ends --as is a well CALCULATED factor by the guys who are choosing her for the Post; those guys you like, since they run your Hidden Agendas. Nor does she have the "Political" Power as Evita had as President Juan Peron's wife!.... Nor are the World Political Times the same as then! Today the Times will ask more, much more from not just the "Politicans" but from us all; you yourself included!...; ) Factors like INTEGRITY will become an Issue... by energies far beyond your --or my-- or any other Earth-being's control.

Origins of Writing

Fingers black and sticky,
I sit in this solitary narrow chair
spilling the salt and flowers
of ink figures onto paper.
You read these,
you keep them.
They are not the clay tablets of Elba,
they are not the gold votive tablets of Pyrgi,
they are not Chinese oracle bones.
They are signal, listing, record, symbol,
picture, keyhole, journey, shadow,
mistake, gaze, honks, spinnings,
pylon, chalk-lines, thicket, bubblings,
murmur, salvo, longing, promise.

Divining The Landscape

After the Concert

"Real singing is a different movement of air.
Air moving around nothing. A breathing in a god. A wind."

You become more careful
walking through a room
where music is playing.
Don't make the record skip,
the earth is tipping already.
Step slowly,
like wading through an island
of white campion,
the sky misted with a low wind
and sea birds.
The world is now understood.
Beyond the sound that opens
the body into weightlessness-
a shadow lingers
in the region of the heart
that can't retreat-
a burning reflection of a storm
leaving behind silent flowers
heavy with hunger.
