Economic Assault on
IT SHOULDN'T HAVE HAPPENED, BUT IT DID!
Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D.
For years, conservatives told the working class to get off welfare and get a job to support their families. But when the working class did this, many conservatives betrayed them by importing guest workers. This shouldn't have happened, but it did. According to Linda Swope of Complete Employment Services, Inc., in Mobile, Alabama: "After Katrina, our company had 70 workers on the job the first day, but the companies decided they didn't need them anymore because the Mexicans had arrived. I assure you it is not true that Americans don't want to work. We had been told that 270 jobs might be available, and we could have filled every one of them with men from this area, most of whom lost their jobs because of the hurricane. When we told the guys they would not be needed, they actually cried...and we cried with them. This is a shame." (See THE WASHINGTON TIMES, April 10, 2006.)
In addition to guest workers, thousands of illegal aliens come to the U.S. every year and take jobs from American workers. Thanks to the Bush administration's "catch and release" procedure, illegal OTMs (Other Than Mexicans) aren't deported when caught, but are released on their own recognizance and told to appear later for a hearing. Of course, many of them simply vanish into the general population here. This shouldn't happen, but it does because many Americans turn a blind eye toward illegal aliens. My question for them is which laws are they telling their own children they don't have to obey, since they don't demand action against illegal aliens?
Not only is illegal immigration a problem, but according to Michael J. Maxwell, former head of the Office of Security and Investigations at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the immigration system is being used by enemy governments to place agents in the U.S. Stephen Dinan's article in THE WASHINGTON TIMES ( April 6, 2006) begins: "An Iraqi-born U.S. citizen suspected of being a foreign intelligence agent was employed by USCIS to rule on asylum applications, including those from unfriendly Middle Eastern nations." Regarding this, Maxwell said, "With no internal audit function at CIS, we don't know who he let into this country." This shouldn't have happened, but it did.
In addition, the terrorists who carried out the 9-11 attacks all came here from other countries. So did Zacarias Moussaoui, and in "Agent: FBI warned 70 times of 9-11 plot" (WorldNetDaily, March 20, 2006), one reads: "An FBI agent testifying today at the death penalty trial of Zacarias Moussaoui says he warned senior officials about 70 times of fears that the confessed Al Qaida plotter planned to hijack an airliner. Harry Samit, the agent who arrested Moussaoui, said he accused his superiors of 'criminal negligence' and 'careerism' when questioned during a U.S. government inquiry on Moussaoui's role in the 9-11 plot, according to Agence France-Presse."
Not long after 9-11, the Bush administration's attention turned to the removal of Saddam Hussein from Iraqi leadership. In addition to the need to remove Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) as a rationale for the U.S. invasion, Americans were told we were liberating Iraqis from Saddam's mistreatment. However, in a news report of March 14, 2006, a Baghdad-based NGO, the Woman Freedom Organization, indicated violence against women had increased dramatically since the U.S. invasion. Women had been kidnapped, killed, raped, and even sold to foreign countries for the global prostitution network. The report said kidnapping of Iraqi women was largely unknown during Saddam's reign. Photos at Abu Ghraib prison showed a U.S. military policeman "having sex with an Iraqi woman," according to a 2005 investigation by Major-General Antonio Taguba, who also found that "an Iraqi woman in her 70s had been harnessed and ridden like a donkey at Abu Ghraib and another coalition center." This shouldn't have happened, but it did. And what have the American people done about it?
To show progress in Iraq, President Bush says we have trained about 200,000 Iraqi soldiers. He also says that American forces (about 135,000 now) can be withdrawn as Iraqi forces are built up. So why aren't people asking why any American forces are still there, since 200,000 is far more than 135,000? My guess is President Bush wants to keep a sizeable number of U.S. forces in Iraq, because of an eventual American attack against Iran.
And what would be the consequences of such an attack? The Iranians have silkworm missiles to use against our ships. They could easily sink oil tankers and block the Strait of Hormuz causing oil prices to double. They could also hit the Abqaiq facility (in Saudi Arabia) or Ghawar (world's largest onshore oil field) or Safaniya (world's largest offshore oil field) further raising the price of oil. And they could send a thousand children to Iraq as suicide bombers to destabilize that country. I have already mentioned in a previous article what havoc Iranian agents in the U.S. could cause.
And why at such a dangerous time in the war on terror has President Bush approved the takeover of 9 U.S. military facilities by the government of Dubai? Jim Abrams of the Associated Press reported (BOSTON GLOBE, April 28, 2006): "President Bush has approved the takeover by a Dubai-owned company of (nine) American plants that make parts for jets and tanks after a review that seems to have satisfied lawmakers who helped block an earlier Dubai deal. Initial reaction from Capitol Hill was favorable."
The economic impact on the U.S. of an American invasion of Iran would be devastating ! Alvin Toffler in the Foreword to Jacques Attali's MILLENNIUM: WINNERS AND LOSERS IN THE COMING WORLD ORDER (1991) noted that at that time, the U.S. had already gone from being the world's largest creditor nation to its largest debtor nation in just a decade. And Toffler warned, "Overextended debt has always been a sign of economic maladjustment, a telltale symptom of fatal imbalance before demise." Attali in 1991 was president of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, and wrote: "National borders are increasingly irrelevant....A vision of global stewardship will require, above all, political leaders who recognize the need for limits and have the courage to abandon traditional notions of national sovereignty."
What is at work is a dialectical process moving us closer and closer to a World Government. It shouldn't happen, but unless the American people begin to resist the machinations of the power elite, it will !
