Fading Victory & Falsification
Until now, they were victorious in their deliberate exploitation of the the media, perverting and falsifying disinformation. But now, the tides have changed, death hangs over the nation, and nothing remains but the descent into the final abyss where faith and truth are wholly and forever extinguished.

Corruption of Language
They exploited others by playing upon their desires and fears, their special weapon was the abuse and corruption of language, which destroyed communication between mind and mind...

The Authorization of Big Brother
"In the weeks [and months] following the terrorist attacks on our nation, I [secretly] authorized the National Security Agency to intercept [spy on] the international communications of people [in America] with [alleged] links to Al Qaeda and related [or unrelated] terrorist organizations." - George W. Bush, December 17, 2005
"War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength." - George Orwell, 1948 (from 1984)

Reality Ends Here
It has been a long, hard road since Bush announced "major military operations have ended" with his victory landing on the Abraham Lincoln. Still announcing victory 2 1/2 years later, the President is testing the nation's ability to swallow his sweeping, epic narrative of the War in Iraq. As they say in Hollywood, and now in the Oval Office, "reality ends here."
It is not a question of believing, it is the suspension of disbelief. Theater is about illusion.

"It's as if the country is living in a permanent state of suspension of disbelief." - Frank Rich
As they say, truth is so 20th century. Do we still own our reality? Hardly. In this decade of disinformation, corporate cooking of the books, lobbyists field trips to posh country clubs, trumped up novels, and now the NSA watching over us all: every call we make, every breath we take... any semblance of the truth must now be left to reality TV, where in the most bizarre way, the media has appropriated all that is left of reality, far beyond the suspension of disbelif.

Let's Get to the Truth

Defending Against the Coup d'état
"Obviously out of thousands and thousands of admirals and generals, if every time two or three people disagreed, we changed the secretary of defense of the United States, it would be like a merry-go-round." – Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld
The descent of the Nation has now infected the military, who are in the beginning stages of a coup d'état, the first attempt of a military takeover of the US Government since the Civil War. Retired generals deflect attention while active military leaders secretly gather in shadowy situational rooms to develop strategies for the takeover of the White House.

A Monstrous Disconnect
"These boys and girls are not spare parts. They remind us of what is lost when embryos are destroyed in the name of research." - President George W. Bush
"These people were running away from the horrible attacks after Israel itself asked them to evacuate… they hit these towns, and blew its people into pieces. Could this get any more monstrous...? - a Lebanese student
Yesterday at the White House, after vetoing the stem cell bill, Bush blesses children who were adopted as embryos, while Israeli attacks in Lebanon continue unabated killing tens of innocent children.
One can only assume, in the eyes of the President, that not all children are born equal under God.

Sending the Beast to the Gallows
With the death sentence of Saddam, they will all be lining up to sling the noose... to cast the Beast to the lowest region of Hell, the Traitors Against Their Own, so that evil will be extinguished, tyranny will end, democracy will flourish, and the world will awaken renewed and pure as the driven snow.
Perhaps they are hanging the wrong man?

An Acknowledgement of Reality
"You're asking if that [Iraq Study Report] is a repudiation of policy... no, it's an acknowledgement of reality." - Tony Snow, White House Press Secretary
Reality has descended in Washington, DC, or at least something that resembles reality: an analysis of deteriorating conditions that goes beyond good and evil, or winning and losing.
As the world closes in around him, as the elders attempt to clean up the mess, Bush is all alone in his bubble, where reality has no currency. The real security threat to America is not terrorism, or insurgents, or "Islamic Fascism"... it is the fatal combination of arrogance and incompetence that threatens to bring down the whole house of cards.
