William Cooper: Secret Government
"I only have one message to give you. I don’t care what you think of me. I don’t care what you call me. I do care what you do with this information because it is important to our survival as a species. It is important to our planet. It is important for the world.
What happens to me is of no consequence, and I knew that when I started this. Over the last 17 years I knew that I would have to stand up and say this whether I wanted to or not, whether I was afraid, or not. Now I am here, and now it is done. And I feel an overwhelming relief.
You now have the information. You can laugh at it, you can throw it in the trashcan. You can burn my house down if you want to. But I am telling you right now, your future, your children’s future, your grandchildren’s future, depends on what you do with this information.
Your own government is selling your children drugs, and you don’t seem to care. Your own government has given away the power of the people and you don’t seem to care. There is an apathy that is running rapid in this country, that is deadly. Whether or not there are aliens, we are truly now at this moment a nation of sheep. And ladies and gentlemen, I assure you that sheep are always lead to the slaughter. But it does not have to be that way.
There is tremendous power in knowledge. There is also tremendous power in secrecy. Take away that secrecy, you make sure that you are informed, and you can change things.”
William Cooper was killed by the secret government on 11 May 2001. They did not want him around for 9/11.

RE: President Barack Obama right to ask congress to vote on attacking Syria, Toronto Star Editorial, Sept 4/13
There’s an old saying we’ve all heard before, but which I think bears repeating at a time like this: “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.” But what if someone keeps fooling you and you keep falling for it? Then you’re either 1) a massive fool, 2)complicit in the fooling, or 3) a citizen. You might even be all three.
While I read the the Star Editorial banging the war drums for an American attack on Syria, I noticed that this piece is heavy on rhetoric and light on facts. Facts are important in journalism. Like the fact that no evidence of the Assad regime’s involvement in this chemical attack has been released to the public. Or the fact that the details which have been released by state actors are highly contradictory and suspect (e.g. wildly divergent death tolls). Or the fact that the American war machine has lied to us in the past to rationalize conflict with one of their perceived enemies (e.g. Kuwaiti babies being pulled from their incubators in 1991, the infamous “WMDs” of the 2nd Gulf war, Libya going from a “no-fly zone” to a bombing campaign within days, etc). I’ll add that America’s use of depleted uranium and its ally Israel’s use of white phosphorous is just as reprehensible as chemical weapons; a bit of rhetoric so you see I’m not all facts.
There is another fact that major corporate media outlets such as the Toronto Star are avoiding: the Al-Quaeda-linked and American-backed Free Syrian Army “rebels” are also armed with chemical weapons. The UN literally accused the FSA of using chemical weapons in May, but could not provide conclusive evidence. Now we are expected to believe that Assad, who happens to be winning the war by all reports, launched a chemical attack on a soft target, on the day after he admitted a UN inspection team to the country. He’d be inviting the wrath of America and the UN (or so Obama had hoped, before he found himself a lone hawk). In a matter such as this we must ask, “Qui bono” (who benefits)?
When you strip away the rhetoric and look at the facts, there’s not a whole lot here, Toronto Star. For you to ignore these facts and jump on the war wagon so quickly, suggests you are either completely divorced from reality or you have an agenda. Either way your chicken hawk stance on Syria is utterly disgraceful. Next time try a little less rhetoric and a few more facts.
