Legacy of the Superstars

A little history behind the recent deaths of Robert McNamara and Michael Jackson
It may seem contradictory, but there is a common thread to the legacy of the recent deaths of both Robert McNamara and Michael Jackson. Both were “superstars” on the world stage who were used by “the system” to promote nefarious agendas. That may not be obvious in Jackson’s case whose experience was more as a victim than as a perpetrator. The real linkage is not what you may think.
This last week on July 6th, Robert McNamara died.
McNamara's legacy is the archetype of what has happened to government leadership since Vietnam, i.e., smart powerful people who distinguish themselves with heartless policies for power, prestige and profit.
Even back in the “Good War” (WWII), McNamara’s “genius” for most of the war was serving the AAF's Office of Statistical Control, analyzing U.S. bombers' efficiency and effectiveness, especially the B-29 forces commanded by Major General Curtis LeMay who firebombed Tokyo and nuked two other Japanese cities. More than a million Japanese were incinerated. One of the FED owners, Rockefeller, later bought up major Japanese industries for pennies on the dollar, and with war reconstruction, everything began to be “made in Japan” – the back-end profits on the war racket.
As Secretary of Defense under Kennedy and Johnson, McNamara directed the bombing of Vietnam with more munitions than used in World War II. Almost 4 million Vietnamese were killed. McNamara later retired from his offensive “Defense Secretary” role to become President of the World Bank. War is a racket that is profitable for the banksters, and they reward high performers with all the perks of power, prestige and profit.
Consider how China has become the new Japan
with American industry getting “nuked” (decimated)
to the advantage of those whose profit preferences
rule all economic policies (minions of the banksters),
but I digress.
In his book Fog of War, McNamara admitted how wrong he was about the hyped up “commie scare” and “domino theory” used to justify the Vietnam War to the American people. But he was paid well for being very wrong. And military-industrial war contractors made a killing, literally, on these murderous policies.
The same policies of heartless wrong-headed war profiteering erupted again with the Iraq invasion, but McNamara remained silent while the same scenario of egregious war profiteering played out.
Another Deputy Secretary of Defense, Paul Wolfowitz, was "a major architect of President Bush's policy and ... its most hawkish advocate." From 2001 to 2005, Wolfowitz served as the Deputy Secretary of Defense, reporting to the U.S. Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld. Wolfowitz, who has duel citizenship with Israel, was the leading neoconservative with an unabashed agenda for “Greater Israel” in the Middle East. And like McNamara, he resigned his government position to become President of the World Bank.
Do you see the pattern? The big achievers in war expansion are rewarded with all the worldly perks of profit, power and prestige. Israel finally got their Baghdad-to-Haifa oil pipeline to serve Israeli interests, using the U.S. as their proxy to wage war since they refused to join the “coalition of the willing” to die and fight for Big Oil which also now has their pipelines siphoning off Iraqi oil wealth.
The point that can’t be emphasized enough is the revolving door between government agencies and the “banksters” who underwrite wars and mass disease for profit and control of the human and physical resources of humanity.
Michael Jackson died June 25th.
Michael had a connection to Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld that few people know about. Before he was Defense Secretary, Rumsfeld was CEO of Searle, the conglomerate that manufactured aspartame and was owned by Monsanto. For 16 years the FDA refused to approve it, not only because it is not safe but because they wanted the company indicted for fraudulent studies that falsified tests of aspartame.
Donald Rumsfeld was on President Reagan's transition team and the day after he took office he appointed an FDA Commissioner who would approve aspartame. The FDA set up a Board of Inquiry of the best scientists they had to offer who said aspartame is not safe – a neurotoxin – that causes cancer. But big money politics won out. Rumsfeld got aspartame approved and made millions on his stock in the company. Millions of Americans have since suffered if not died from a vast variety of neurotoxin diseases as you can read at “The Aspartame Connection.”
I hope you realize that this is not your garden variety of criminality.
This is the connection of Michael Jackson to Donald Rumsfeld. Jackson was high-paid spokesperson for Diet Pepsi, laced with aspartame. He was a big user and developed lupus – cancer of his connective skin tissues. You might say, he became “unglued”, with white patches all over his body, the largest organ system of the body, which is why he had so much cosmetic surgery, attempting to put a good face on his disease. Jackson didn’t want to go public with his lupus as did another superstar pitchman for Diet Pepsi, Michael J. Fox, who developed Parkinson's, one of many neurological diseases that the neurotoxin aspartame causes. Fox was a big consumer of aspartame-laced Diet Pepsi.
A well respected physician and author, Deepak Chopra, has come out to speak on his longtime friend and patient, Michael Jackson. Dr. Chopra reports that the deceased musician has been suffering from lupus, referring to emotional abuse in Jackson’s childhood as a contributing factor. People can also become “unglued” with emotion abuse. But aspartame by itself can cause lupus and a myriad of other diseases, as detailed at “The Aspartame Connection.”
The drugs Michael was taking for the pain of lupus and the systemic poisoning from aspartame killed him. His body was not up for a grueling “comeback tour” in Europe, no matter how much he may have wanted to. Perhaps Michael knew this if not his tour promoters who may have realized he was worth more dead than alive. His music sales have indeed gone ballistic.
The best legacy for Michael would be an awakening of people worldwide to the systemic poisoning of the populace for the profit of giant corporate interests that making a killing on aspartame and prescription drugs.
If there is not
a revolution of “informed choice” in health care
and our system of “representative government”,
all of our core freedoms will increasingly
become null and void until we are
dead men walking.
In my former career as a clinical nutritionist, I had someone come to me with lupus, not wanting to consume the regimen of toxic drugs prescribed by her doctor. I gave her the information about bioflavonoids and vitamin C that build the intercellular connective tissue. She went through total remission of the disease on an inexpensive regimen of supplementation.
Informed public choice in health care would make the current system of disease care obsolete. There’s no money in prevention for the drug-pushing medical-industrial complex. That system suppresses informed choice. They put high profile holistic healers out of business because the results make the Big Pharma drug pushers look like the real quacks. My third holistic health center was also shut down by local doctors who were losing business with clients going back to their doctors, saying that this holistic stuff was the future of medicine. The stress on my family was inordinate; I changed professions.
Much of America and the world is being extremely stressed right now. It is not sustainable. We need to know both the core problem and the definitive solution; two parts following below.
When Power is
Privatized, Centralized and Monopolized
From the Top Down, the Public Loses
disease have become profitable for giant corporations in collusion with
government officials. The medical-industrial complex is actually bigger than
the military-industrial complex, both dedicated to the preeminence of
corporate law whereby stockholder interests come before those of the public
whenever profits are at stake. Constitutional law has been usurped by
corporatism – the merger of corporate and government powers that Mussolini
Public institutions have become increasingly privatized by giant corporate conglomerates in collusion with the privately owned FED whose owners also have major ownerships positions with Big Media, Big Pharma, Big Oil and the Big War profiteers. The revolving door between top officers in these corporations and top positions in government regulatory agencies is incestuous and notorious as the biggest threat to public health and well-being.
Rumsfeld and Jackson are just two faces of the many high-profile public figures who end up selling out to private interests that use them to promote war and/or disease for the corrupt currency of power, prestige and profit without conscience.
The most powerful special interests in the world have a vested interest in keeping common sense uncommon. The self-destructive insanity of this core corruption is actually a war against conscience.
As we all know, the first casualty in war is the truth, and without vision (the whole/holy truth), the people perish. We’re now seeing the fruit of this conscience-challenged system devouring the connective tissue of civility like a systemic lupus in the body politic.
Every few years, the public is given the chance to vote their conscience, but every day of the year, lobbyists are in the ear of our representatives with all the enticements of power, privilege and/or profit for selling out the public. The whole system of federal government is rigged for ownership and control by a power elite whose behavior is epitomized by the public taxpayer’s bailout of the banks, by the banks and for the banksters who profit from debt, disease, terror and war.
The real tragedy in this war against conscientious common sense is that everyone becomes a victim of a mass media that is embedded with diversion, inversion and perversion of our Net reality; diversion from reality with mindless entertainment, inversion of peace with war propaganda, and perversion of the whole truth with the Big Lie of disease care without health care, defense that is offensive, privatized profits without Constitutional principle, national security without virtuous purity, and over-all intelligence without a conscience.
That system is no longer sustainable. It’s killing us with inversion, perversion and subversion of all that we hold sacred – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends,
it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government..."
~ Declaration of Independence
If we don’t change the system with a systemic upgrade of core Constitutional freedoms at the heart of our new global village Net reality, we’re all dead men walking.
That warrants a serious look at how a holistic upgrade will work.
When Power is
Democratized, Decentralized and Distributed
From the Bottom Up, the Public Wins
Slumbering humanity is awakening to this self-evident truth in a new global village of instant-everywhere-interactive knowledge power.
A public plan that gives public options to reverse the self-destruct course of institutionalized corporatism will naturally face entrenched opposition from the giant lobbies in Congress that represent the heartless beast of privatized profits without Constitutional principle without Constitutional principle of, by and for the public.
The core issue is CONSCIENCE. The great soul Mahatma Gandhi once said that “Commerce without morality is a sin”. Today we see how organized greed and the love of power has tried to take the sin out of sin with policies that are morally insane.
What Thomas Paine did for America, and Gandhi did for India, needs to happen in our new global village – Global Independence from the power trips of a corrupt and callous power elite.
This is and will be a moral revolution in higher consciousness that represents a Higher Power at the heart of social conscience in our all-connected social networks. It will finish what U.S. Founders began, upgrading our core Constitutional freedoms with informed choice that makes our social institutions accountable to the currency of conscience.
patriotic superstars in this movement -- to fulfill the divine destiny of
global freedom – are those who “get it” and give it… pure
intention with focused attention on the evolutionary ascension of humanity. The
role model for the superstars needed on the world stage now are those in the
humble image of Thomas Paine and The Legacy of U.S.
The more clear the vision – a nonviolent rEVOLUTION in Higher Consciousness – the greater the results.

PS: Abundant conscience with the currency of conscience makes the economics of scarcity obsolete… just as a global upgrade of our Net reality with a reboot of core Constitutional freedoms will make obsolete the value of scarcity BS (Belief System), liberating an abundance of conscientious common sense. The key to that process is what Thomas Paine called “Common Sense” and Jefferson called “natural law” – the universal-cosmic law language that makes divisive religious and political “BS” (Belief System) obsolete.
