Has anyone seen Smedley Butler?
04 Feb 2006
Well, sadly, Smedley is not around anymore but today we desperately need someone like him to help us stop the complete destruction of our freedoms by the industrialists and secret societies that have taken over this country.
Who was Smedley Butler and why is he such a great American?

A bit about Smedley Butler and the American fascist coup attempt in the 30s, from Wikipedia:

“The Business Plot, The Plot Against FDR, or The White House Putsch was a conspiracy of moneyed interests, which tried to overthrow President Franklin D. Roosevelt during the early years of the Great Depression. The allegations of the plot came to light when Marine Corps General Smedley Butler testified to the existence of the plot before the McCormack-Dickstein Committee in 1933 [1]. In this testimony, Butler claimed that a group of several men had approached him as part of a plot to overthrow Roosevelt in a fascist military coup. In their final report, the Congressional committee supported Butler's allegations on the existence of the plot [2], but no prosecutions or further investigations followed, and the matter was mostly forgotten.”

This plot was meant to take place to correspond with the rise of fascism in Europe to help institute a new world order by the banking, occult elite.

What many Americans are not aware of is that this elite has firmly taken over this country and is now putting in place the people and agencies to prepare for martial law. If one doubts that they are preparing for martial law, one should ask why the Bush administration put in place two criminals in charge of America’s top intelligence services -- John Negroponte, the famous central American death squad supporter, is the new National Intelligence Director, and Michael Chertoff, a torture apologist, is now director of Homeland Security.

Also evidence that the apparatus is being set up for martial law is that the courts are being stacked by Federalist’s society judges who are supportive of the “unitary executive” doctrine, which would allow Bush and the neocon fascists to have unbridled powers unencumbered by the legislative or judicial branches of government.

And, just recently it was announced that Halliburton’s KBR was just awarded a $385 million dollar contract for building camps here in the United States, allegedly for an influx of immigrants who are just dying to get into the Brave New World.

What Americans Must Do:

Americans must expose 9/11 -- the inside job by the intelligence agencies of the elite or factions inside them, (i.e., the CIA, NSA, Mossad, M16). This is the fulcrum issue for the War on Terror, which is why 9/11 is such and important issue for the left to discredit. Without this key issue, the elites have no rational for spying on you, for pre-emptive war, for taking away civil liberties and a whole host of other draconian laws and measures, including martial law.

The time is right to take back our country from the fascists because to not do so would condemn all of us to lives of slavery and perpetual war. We must act now, before they close down the Internet, and before they commit another false flag job and institute martial law.

What we desperately need are more Smedley Butlers.

I can respect General Butler because he is a former (not "ex") Marine, but I think some of his views about basically being a corporate mercenary were influenced by the times, and sadly, were close to the truth. However, I think in today's world, the Gerneral's opinions would be different.
