Time To Take Back America From The Democrats And The GOP
From Karl W B Schwarz
One of the missions of American Patriot Movement will be to remove the U.S. troops from Iraq and Afghanistan and conduct a full investigation of 9-11 without a panel of 10 people that are conflicted on making a full investigation.
Our Constitution, our freedoms and civil liberties have all been altered because of 9-11, an investigation that has been covered up by the Bush Administration and Congress. They have even covered up the Cheney Energy Task Force, where we suspect that it was discussed that the landlocked oil deals in Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan would not be landlocked much longer - as Cheney and Bush intended to take control of the Trans-Afghanistan Pipeline, or TAP as it is called, with military force.
That pipeline was under contract from Turkmenistan, through Afghanistan, through Pakistan to the ocean with an Argentine oil company named Bridas Corporation and its parent Bridas S.A.P.I.C. On September 9, 2003, Bridas prevailed at the Fifth Circuit, U.S. Court of Appeals on a $500 million interference of contract lawsuit. That lawsuit was then taken to the U.S. Supreme Court and on March 22, 2004 the high court refused to hear the case or consider reversing the Fifth Circuit decision. See US Supreme Court, case 03-1018, State Concern Turkmenneft v. Bridas S.A.P.I.C.,
The Bush Administration does not want any American knowing the truth about what happened in Afghanistan or that we breached a commercial contract with military force to take over a deal that was denied to US oil companies, because there was already a deal in place. Under the Clinton Administration they upended the Pakistan government to cut off that part of the Bridas Corporation deal. Under the Clinton Administration, they compelled Turkmenistan to breach its agreements with Bridas, hence the judgment award of $500 million for interference of contract.
The only remaining obstacle on 9-11 was the remaining agreement between the Taliban and Bridas Corporation.
The law firm of Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw was the firm that kept Bridas tied up in court at Fifth Circuit and at the U.S. Supreme Court. Senior partner of that law firm, while these lawsuits were in progress, is Richard Ben Veniste, 9-11 Commission member. He put on quite a show at the 9-11 Commission while his law firm kept Bridas tied up in court and not a word said that someone else had beaten the US and our oil companies to the contracts. This is the same law firm that helped Andy Fastow at Enron set up all of those bogus offshore SPE [Special Purpose Entity] that were special just to steal from investors.
This nation is being led by a dishonest government that will tell any lie to carry out any objective where it involves money, greed and power. They care not at all what they do in our name or what they do to undermine our freedoms and what this nation has always stood for.
We have been giving much consideration as to what steps would have to be taken, and here are but a few: 1. Removal of all troops from Iraq, possible relocation of those armored divisions to Palestine; and
2. A series of Executive Orders that would shred the veils that this government hides behind. All investigations would be thrown wide open to public view, and all persons that deserve to be prosecuted would be prosecuted; and
3. Dismantling and re-defining of the Patriot Act so that it focuses on the problems, and not be used as a tool to undermine the Constitution and our freedoms; and
4. Fiscal sanity would start by reigning in the wasteful spending and the National Debt curve would start heading the other way; and
5. Possible price controls and definite investigation, prosecution of market manipulations; and
6. Barring of AIPAC from Capitol Hill due to them being a foreign lobbyist that is decidedly pro-Israel; and
7. Deregulation and breaking up the media monopolies and other monopolies that threaten this nation and the wellbeing of each and every one of us. None of us can make good decisions in a vacuum or when lies are being spoon fed to us.
California, the liberal bastion that it is, should support me for one simple reason. I would force the 21 energy companies that plundered the rate payers of California to reimburse that $5.5 to $7.5 billion they stole and Bush did nothing about it but dole out miniscule fines compared to the crime. That some of those 21 firms are involved in the big Caspian Basin oil deals is something that deserves a full investigation regarding the light nature of their fines. These are the same firms that sat in on the Cheney Energy Task Force that the Bush Administration does not want anyone to look into.
The Bush Administration, and the Clinton Administration to keep the record straight, does not want Americans to know about Bridas Corporation or that they had signed major oil and gas development agreements with Turkmenistan as early as 1992 and 1993. They then signed agreements with Pakistan and Afghanistan because the Trans-Afghanistan Pipeline is one of but a few routes to get the landlocked Caspian Basin oil to the ocean and distributed around the world.
There is another route and that is through the former Russian state of Georgia. The leader of that nation, Georgian prime minister Zurab Zhvania decided he was against the oil pipelines coming through his nation and he wound up assassinated shortly after he made that fateful decision. Our press painted the picture that he was killed due to his coziness with the "West", but the fact is he was against our pipelines coming through Georgia. You do the math.
Both the Bush and Clinton Administrations do not want Americans to know that Bridas was interfered with in Turkmenistan and Pakistan to isolate both the Taliban and Bridas Corporation regarding the Trans-Afghanistan Pipeline, a pipeline that we now control through use of military force in Afghanistan and raises serious questions about our true motives in attacking Afghanistan following 9-11.
The Bush Administration does not want Americans to know that Bridas Corporation and their parent Bridas SAPIC, prevailed in our Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals regarding interference of contract in Turkmenistan. That decision was handed down from a US Court on September 9, 2003, while the 9-11 Commission and Bush Administration were in cover up mode on 9-11. Bridas SAPIC v. Government of Turkmenistan, et al., No, 02-20929, 5th Cir
The Bush Administration does not want Americans to know about the U.S. Supreme Court decision handed down on March 22, 2004, while the 9-11 Commission was still playing "Where's Waldo?" that the High Court denied the Writ of Certiorari and let the Fifth Circuit decision stand. Case Number 03-1018, Turkmenneft v Bridas S.A.P.I.C. See Certiorari Denied at this link:
You did not hear of this from Bush, Congress or the 9-11 Commission, and it is time you started asking why you did not hear about this from them.
How much oil is in the Caspian Basin? More then 200 billion barrels, a thirty-year supply and worth over $12 trillion dollars. For every day of 30 years, that is just shy of 10 supertankers full of 2 million barrels of oil. That is right - 10 supertankers a day for every day the next 30 years. That is the single biggest "motive" for any crime I have ever seen and was the probable reason that 9-11 was engineered so certain parties could take over that pipeline and that colossal oil and gas deal. How much natural gas? Reportedly as much as 12 trillion cubic meters, or about $3 trillion worth of natural gas on top of the vast oil reserves.
It is not my word against Bush and Clinton. The historical facts and US court records say all that needs to be said about the possible taint on our real motives of heading towards Afghanistan. If our motives for invading Afghanistan were a lie, just like Iraq has been, the matter needs to be looked into and possible charges brought against certain people. Just consider that Afghanistan and our actions there are directly tied to 9-11. I have met very few people that think the 9-11 Commission was doing its job rather than covering it up.
Did you know about Bridas Corporation? Did you know about Mr. Ben Veniste's law firm being involved the Caspian Basin and keeping Bridas Corporation tied up in the court case while he was sitting on the 9-11 Commission?
These 9-11 Commissioners all have vested financial reasons directly and indirectly to see 9-11 covered up as it was:
Thomas Keane, 9-11 Commission chairman, Amerada Hess, tied to Big Oil and major deals in the Caspian Basin region
Fred Thompson, former Rep governor of Illinois, sits on the board of FMC and oil equipment subsidiary doing well in the Caspian Basin. Afghanistan pipeline needed to get that landlocked oil and natural gas to the oceans.
John F. Lehman, John F. Lehman & Company, Rep, former Secretary of the Navy, now a private equity firm directly involved in Big Defense
Fred Fielding, Rep, served on Bush transition team. Also sits on a board with Diane Allbaugh, oil industry lobbyist and wife of Joe Allbaugh, Bush Cheney 2000 campaign manager
Richard Ben Veniste, senior partner Mayer Brown Rowe & Maw. Formerly was the lead counsel for Enron and all of those fraudulent offshore entities set up by Andy Fastow, and Mayer Brown used to share an office with Enron in Uzkekistan. Now Enron is Primus Energy, Cayman Islands, all former Enron International and former Halliburton people as management. Mayer Brown also kept Bridas tied up in court prior to, during and following 9-11, and while the 9-11 Commission was conducting a mock investigation. The name Bridas Corporation never came up publicly in any Congressional hearings or the 9-11 Commission.
Jamie Gorelick, sits on the board of Schlumberger, firm is raking in record profits from Caspian Basin business
Tim Roemer, has taken political donations for years while in Congress from Carlyle Group (Big Defense), Chevron (Big Oil and heavily involved in the Caspian Basin and Condoleezza Rice as former Chervon board member), and Van Scoyoc & Associates, major foreign lobbyist for Big Defense and Big Oil.
Any way you cut it, a 7 to 3 majority by people who have direct conflicts of interests is still a majority on the 9-11 Commission and makes it easy to cover up what really happened.
For those Americans that think Clinton had nothing to do with the lead up to invading Afghanistan over a pipeline we could not otherwise get control of, take a look at what self-acclaimed Neocon Max Boot, senior fellow Council for Foreign Relations had to say in an interview with the Christian Science Monitor: The Neocons tried for years to get Clinton to act.
"What type of foreign policy/security strategy would an Al Gore administration have set after Sept. 11? How different would it have been from the one that emerged from the Bush White House?
I think it's likely that the Gore administration would have invaded Afghanistan after 9/11. I think it's unlikely they would have invaded Iraq. That's the big difference."
They had been planning the takeover of that Trans-Afghanistan Pipeline for many years. If you understand that the same wealthy elite special interests own both parties in DC, you are understanding the gravity of the problem. Bridas started signing contracts with Turkmenistan, the north end of that pipeline in 1992 and 1993. That is a provable and documented fact and it was also long before any of our oil companies were welcome in the region. Bridas also saw the strategic importance of having a way to get the landlocked oil and gas to the ocean and the shortest route to do that is from Turkmenistan, through Afghanistan and Pakistan to an ocean port.
Max Boot also does us all a service by having a Neocon provide a definition as to what a Neocon really is at this link:
What The Heck Is A Neocon?
By Max Boot Wall Street Journal December 30, 2002
I have been called many names in my career -- few of them printable -- but the most mystifying has to be "neocon." I suppose I get labeled thus because I am associated, in a small way, with the Weekly Standard, which is known as a redoubt of "neoconservatism."
But what the heck is a neocon anyway in 2003? A friend of mine suggests it means the kind of right-winger a liberal wouldn't be embarrassed to have over for cocktails. That's as good a definition as any, since the term has clearly come unmoored from its original meaning.
'Mugged by Reality'
The original neocons were a band of liberal intellectuals who rebelled against the Democratic Party's leftward drift on defense issues in the 1970s. At first the neocons clustered around Sen. Henry "Scoop" Jackson, a Democrat, but then they aligned themselves with Ronald Reagan and the Republicans, who promised to confront Soviet expansionism. The neocons, in the famous formulation of one of their leaders, Irving Kristol, were "liberals mugged by reality."
They were never conservatives, only pretended to be.
The only solution I can see to restore America is to consolidate the third parties, the disaffected Republican and Democrats who have figured it out, and Take Back America before we have nothing left worth having to take back.
I cannot stress enough that no single person can take there people on and win. It will take a grassroots effort that equals or exceeds either the DNC or RNC. It will take money and lots of it to get the media and air time needed to get the message out to America. The 2004 presidential election was a $1 billion show between Bush, Kerry and their wealthy elite / corporate backers.
If Americans want change, they have to be prepared to match RNC and DNC at least dollar for dollar to make that change happen.
The Campaign Website is up and open for contributions at www.karlschwarz2008.com
It is time to Take Back America and that will require that all of us be in the front lines and not sitting back and watching the show. If you have the time, please forward this email update to all that you know, for their futures are at stake too.
