If you believe in all the ancient prophecies then next year 2012 is the year the Mayan Prophecy predicts some kind of major disaster or change for our planet.
Even if you don’t believe in that prophecy 2012 looks like it’s going to be another year full of war, protest and austerity measures as inflation rises, jobs are lost and taxes raised.
Elections are going to occur, how real they will be is another matter. Or if you live in Europe they might be abandoned completely so that “Eurocrat yes men” are given jobs as leaders of once democratic EU nations. Just so that they can do the bidding of the banks and globalists and ignore the wishes of their population which they are supposed to have their best interests at heart.
This is as Time magazine correctly put it the year of the protester.
From Tahrir Square, to Occupy Wall St, Occupy London and all the other various Occupy Camps around the world. From riots in London and Athens to resignations of Prime Ministers in Greece and Italy. From Spain to Yemen and farmers setting themselves on fire in India due there have been protests, staged revolts and enough western humanitarian assistance to kill a few hundred thousand innocent people.
The Republicans under George Bush were pretty blaze about their desire for control of Middle Eastern oil supplies, regime change, the implementation of democracy through war and destruction and then lucrative contracts to their friends to rebuilt afterwards.
However the democrats under a supposed teacher of constitutional law Barack Obama AKA Barry Soetoro have been a lot more underhand in their methods.
Not only have they carried on the worst of the Bush excesses by keeping Guantanamo Bay open and continuing their special 4th class and totally free special rendition flights for suspected “terrorists” to hell holes around the world.
His administration has also broken all the promises Obama made during election about restoring America’s standing in the world, stopping the destruction of freedoms that the terrorists supposedly hated us so much for and his desire to make a positive changes for the American people.
They have kept the terror threat at a maximum level allowing them to pass some of their own draconian legislation, the NDAA that puts even the PATRIOT ACT to shame in it’s constitution destroying powers.
The National Defense Appropriation Act (NDAA) basically gives the President dictatorial powers which he has already used to kill American citizens overseas without arrest or trial and this law pushes the USA further away from the founding fathers dream of liberty to a place that many find too scary to think about.
Under the NDAA the POTUS can arrest and imprison any American indefinitely, either at home or overseas in one of their “special prisons”, without access to an attorney or trial or and even allows for their torture.Whilst the Bush administration just kidnapped and tortured suspects the Obama administration just sends drones or hit squads in to kill them.
In this regards he has taken actions that liberals would have been outraged about if Republicans were in charge and pushed policy further to the right than even they could have dreamt of. Liberals and Conservatives should be outraged at both the Obama and Bush administrations disregard for the Bill of Rights and the rule of law.
Ron Paul calls it martial law. Many Americans agree. When the President can choose whether you live or die by a stroke of a pen with no legal recourse you are basically living in a dictatorship.
As the USA slips further towards it’s own special blend of corporatism, fascism, nationalism and imperialistic dreams that are already bankrupting them they still cannot help meddling in the affairs of others.
Some claim the troubles in Syria and the ratcheting up of tough talk with Iran is just Israel once again pulling Americas strings in an election year to get what they want. Someone has to pay for all those expensive election campaigns you know. Wouldn’t it be great if anyone could stand for President without needing a few hundred million dollars backing them up and a lot of favours to repay if they win?
Others see the rise in war mongering with Iran as more of an excuse to not have to remove their forces from their multi million dollar bases in Iraq and Kuwait and instead build them up in preparedness for the rise of China and a resurgent Russia.The grand chessboard has been re-opened for a new game between a declining power and a rising one.
Whilst the USA secures it’s oil supplies and business contracts with bullets, bombs and death China is too busy making friends and investing in any country with resources that it requires. Together with Brazil, Russia and India the BRIC countries are definitely on the rise and their economic growth will outstrip the USA and Europe before many had predicted.
Compare and contrast if you will and try and remember those days you were back at school.
Would you be friends with the school bully purely out of fear or make friends with the rich kid who helps you with your homework, buys your sweets off you at lunch time and doesn’t throw a punch at anyone all term?
So we are getting geared up for another Iraqi style false propaganda onslaught by US media slaves who repeat whatever they are told by the White House and probably haven’t got an honest journalist amongst them.
When a comedian like Jon Stewart offers more insight and logic into the world around us than any US congressman or Senator then something is seriously wrong with US politicians.
The Occupy Wall St protesters started out small and were ignored for time until those nice well meaning robocops in blue started getting filmed spraying pensioners and students in the face with pepper spray and battering aggressive students who had the audacity to link arms with each other.And I thought the motto was to protect and serve. Serve who exactly?
Nothing gets publicity like a good police brutality story or two and we have had more than a few this year.
Claims of meaningless demands and the usual piss taking from talking heads at FOX only made the Occupy protesters simple message stronger.
Since the crash of 2008 the 1% of people who own the majority of the wealth, money, land and stock have been doing very well indeed whilst the 99% are facing rising prices, job losses, benefit cuts, and future without hope.
The riots in London proved that when the kids think there is nothing worth working towards they will kick off. If only their aspirations went a bit higher than a new pair of trainers and included demands to see some of the banksters who ripped us all off be sent to prison.
Shouts of “we are the 99%” may make sense to the protesters in Wall St and St Pauls as they glare at those tall churches to capitalism that surround them, but for a lot of people they still don’t get it.
In fact there are still a few delusional people who think that the current system of government and phony corporatist capitalism we’re living under is still “the best” we can hope to achieve. They see the Occupy groups as socialists, communists and hippies looking for somewhere free to live and state handouts forever.
However it is sad when you actually realise that the cops battering the protesters from Oakland to New York, the dismissive news readers and even some of those city brokers who thought they were special as they wrote “we are the 1%” on the windows of their offices are themselves within that group that they dismiss so much.
They won’t be saved when the shit goes down. When will that get through to them?
So the protests around the world was the main event but key figures such as Gaddfi, bin Laden (supposedly) and Kim Jong-il all died during the year of 2011.
Gaddafi died after a UN backed NATO air campaign that wan’t even declared a war by the main player the USA. No need for Congress to vote on the matter, just shut up and look the other way please.Another case of US law being ignored and no-one doing anything about it on Capital Hill.
So after an air raid on a convey and a bedraggled Gaddafi was pulled from a drain by rebels. He was shot in the head by someone who disagreed with the commanders idea of actually obeying Geneva conventions, treating his injuries and then trying him in a court for all his crimes.And who said the rebels were just a rabble army of ex Gaddafi supporters, terrorists and people eager to shoot a gun for the first time.
So the war in Libya ended like it started with lies, war crimes and death and still the people haven’t seen any real change in their lives and protests still occur daily around the country.
Then we had the mysterious case of the killing of bin Laden who had supposedly been hiding out in Abbottabad, right next to a Military College, in plain sight shall we say.The Pakistanis deny this but the USA relationship with their supposed ally is falling apart as fast as the number of Pakistani civilians and soldiers murdered “accidentally” by US drones.
The US obviously not wanting to let their Pakistani “allies” know about their plans carried out a night raid in which apparently the President and his chiefs of staff watched live – albeit with a 20 minute blackout that cut out all the good bits – or so we are told.
No photos were released to the public (too gruesome said Obama), even though all the SEAL team members had video cameras on their helmets so a photo before the kill shot could have been taken and shown as proof to the disbelievers.
Whilst Saddam Hussein was paraded in front of the cameras, tried and then hung on camera and even Gaddafi’s final moments were allowed to be broadcast it seems the USA’s number one enemy was allowed a more decent death. A death not seen by anyone in the public.
Then there is the sudden wish to obey Americas evil agent gone astray’s religious rights by burying him in the middle of the sea like a Pirate being made to walk the plank.
So no-one has actually seen any actual evidence of this event occurring and the story is so full of anomalies it could make you believe those that say bin Laden died years ago from a natural death by kidney failure.
Some people even think this was just a show put on for the US public so Obama could finally say “we got him” and have an excuse for ending the war in Afghanistan.
Except we are still at war in the Stan.Why is that? Our reason for going there has now disappeared apparently and if we are there to fight drug production we are certainly not doing a very good job at it.
In fact most of the people we are at war with in Afghanistan have never even heard of bin Laden, 9.11 or the Twin Tower attacks.
They see us as just another foreign invader which they have been at war with (and winning) for the last few hundred years.They have defeated the British Empire multiple times, the Soviet Empire, many other ancient armies and by the looks of things the USA as well.
Then there are the anomalies surrounding bin Laden’s death such as the crashed SEAL helicopter, the neighbours who said it wasn’t bin Laden but some other well known local figure and then the later occurrence of a 20 members of the same SEAL team responsible for the Abbottabad attack being killed in action when a helicopter was downed in Afghanistan not too much later.
A clean up and shut up job maybe? Or just a freaky co-incidence.
Maybe a few of the SEAL team were feeling a bit guilty about their first “acting performance” having such a profound effect and knowing that in reality they did little more than shoot up a building in the middle of the night and kill some innocent people.
So now that the reason we went back into the dark ages, threw away all our freedoms and liberties, enacted draconian laws like the PATRIOT Act and NDAA, started a decade of war and pissed off half the people on the planet has gone then what exactly are we still doing?
On the one hand al-Qaeda are the cold war replacement enemy that will never die but on the other we help their allies out as we did in Libya and are supposedly doing now in Syria.They seem to be our enemy when it suits us but our ally as well as in Bosnia (the KLA), and Libya.
The head of the rebel army in Tripoli was actually an ex Gitmo detainee who we have provided arms to. What does that tell you?
Maybe that al-Qaeda are just useful brainwashed idiots that are used by their handlers to cause havoc in places we need to de-stabilise before we can come in on our white horses to reap the rewards of reconstruction contracts and oil supplies?
Or maybe that is just too much conspiracy theory and I have been listening to Sibel Edmonds, the most gagged woman in history,too much again. Someone who many influential people have called a very credible witness which is probably why she has been gagged so much.
It is clear certain people know the truth but 2011 has also been the year that the authorities have shown how they treat whistle blowers and assets who don’t play ball.
Claims of sexual assault seem to be the best way of delegitimizing anyone who might want to speak up.Who knows if the ex IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn was going to speak out about the phony ponzi scheme our debt based currency system is built upon.
Then there is Julian Assange who hasn’t been charged with any offence but who is stuck in an extradition battle with Sweden over sex allegations that involve two women who apparently willingly had sex with him. All they want to do is talk to him, and maybe send him to the USA for the secret grand jury that has been conveyed to see if he is a danger to the country. Expect a drone flying your way soon Julian!
So if you speak up you can expect to be shut up. That is if you’re not already under a national security letter or sitting naked in a military cell somewhere being gently cajoled by having a free wash of their face as the GOP like to call water boarding.
So what will happen next year then?
Well if we don’t all die from more nuclear power plant explosions, massive sun flares, and what looks like a planned war with Iran to drive the price of oil up even more then who knows.
I certainly wouldn’t have predicted the “killing” of bin Laden or the war in Libya last year although the protests were clearly visible over the horizon as the economy got progressively worse.In 2012 they will definitely get worse and I expect to see at least a few more European cities afflicted by severe violence and maybe even leave the doomed Euro.
Maybe we will find out that Hitler is actually still alive hiding out in Argentina and an Israeli Mossad hit team will finally take him out – no photos of course.
Or maybe we will finally see how much Sweden is in the USA‘s pocket when Julian Assange finally gets extradited for a crime he hasn’t even be charged for.
For god’s sake if all they want to do is talk to him then why can’t they just pick up the phone? Or is extradition the only way one country can interview a suspect residing in another country now? What happened to passing questions from one police service to another?
Then there is the financial doom we are all heading towards due to hubris and a desire for an ancient plan of European Statehood not to be derailed.
Even when whole European countries are literally living on handouts from the IMF, Merkozy will be holding regular meetings in Brussels to kick the ball further down the road so that the only obvious two answers to the problem don’t have to be decided upon.
Either kill the Euro and go back to a common trading block or create a European Super State and give up all national sovereignty – something the people of Europe definitely don’t want to do. Kicking the ball down the road is obviously the easy option.
So maybe we should be hoping that the Mayan prophecy is true as if things go to certain peoples plans we might all die anyway in a nuclear explosion, a rouge Iranian missile or a terrorist act in retaliation for the US / Israel starting their next desired war.
Who knows what will happen if the Mayans were right, maybe in comparison with what’s happening at the moment it might seem like a change for the good anyway.
