Support our Dupes

by Hari Heath

You see them everywhere. In store windows, on signs and especially the plastic ribbons stuck on cars proclaiming "support our troops." Looking past the popularly programmed mindset, what does "support our troops" really mean? Do those who proclaim their support actually give any? Does the government support "our" troops? Aren’t the troops and those who sport support stickers really dupes who truly need our support?

Duped troops

What about those troops? Many, seeking a leg up from some disadvantaged place in society and others genuinely seeking to serve their country, were first duped at the recruiter’s office. Promises of lifetime healthcare, educational benefits, special training and placement in preferred areas of service, enticed many to sign up for the military. The recruiter’s non-revocable, less-than-full-disclosure contract begins to fall short at first muster. The duping pays dividends to the dupers upon full deployment in a hostile foreign land when the duped fight with no mission and no exit strategy.

We were duped into believing that Arab terrorists were responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks when the evidence indicates rogue elements of the domestic government helped to achieve their airborne objectives.

Dupers, from the president on down, duped the world into supporting a pre-emptive war to seek out and destroy Saddam’s "weapons of mass destruction" that have never been found.

A policy of "friendly harm" has justified our troops being exposed to depleted uranium, forced vaccinations and decades of clandestine testing of chemical and biological agents—and then we send our troops into harms way without so much as adequate body armor?

Mandatory, multiple tours of duty; troops recalled or prevented from retirement and a National Guard that is now mostly out of the nation—is this how we honor enlistment contracts and "support our troops?"

Government casualty counts only include those who died on the battlefield. If enough pieces of a man can be scraped up, flown to Germany and still have a pulse before expiring, as is increasingly common with the aid of modern battlefield trauma care, they are not included in the casualty count.

After healing the open wounds, more than a few of our troops have found themselves kicked out of medical facilities, discharged with no benefits, support, transportation home or literally in some cases, no legs to stand on. Some are even billed for their medical treatment, made necessary by their "service to our country."

Support our troops? Government doesn’t.

Support what?

There are a few Americans who really do support the troops. They may take care of their families while they are deployed, or look after a veteran in need, or participate in some support group. But most give lip service, at best. What do many Americans really mean by "support our troops?"

Unfortunately, these popular stickers are often displayed for selfish interests. Unconsciously, the real meaning may be: More cheap oil for me; more security for me—and they have to do to show support is slap a ribbon on their car? At times, human nature is less than ideal and these are those times. I suspect that most of the people sporting support stickers and signs have never actually done anything to support a member of the military or their family.

Whose troops?

It’s not just the troops who have been duped. Well meaning believers in our present society believe the troops are fighting to protect us. But that’s not what an objective analysis will reveal. The troops are not fighting for us. They are not even fighting to bring "us" oil. We don’t get any oil out of the deal, the oil companies do. And last I checked, oil companies are not benevolent public service agencies. They profit at our expense—including the personal costs paid by "our troops."

They are not even "our" troops. They could be more accurately described as U. S. corporate mercenaries—the fighting men and women of Corp-gov. They fight for oil company oil; they are expendable bodies for the military-industrial complex’s weapons inventory reduction and resupply program; they provide reconstruction opportunities for Halliburton et. al.

Today’s dupe

We were led to believe, before the onset of the current Iraq occupation/coup, that Saddam had WMDs and would use them if we didn’t stop him. Rarely mentioned, was the fact that he was planning on selling Iraqi oil for Euros. This figurative thrust would have pierced the armor of the global oil cartel and begun bleeding out the petro-dollar. The cartel cannot allow their petro-dollar scheme to fail, so Saddam must go—at any cost—and with any excuse the generally duped population will accept.

Deja Vu? Now Iran is planning on selling its oil for Euros, so the building-nuclear-weapons-and-threatening-to-use-them card is being played. Interestingly, North Korea, India, Pakistan and Israel are all members of the have-built-nuclear-weapons-and-threatened-to-use-them club, but, since they are not selling oil for Euros, they are not on the imminent invasion schedule.

Again, what, exactly, are "our" troops fighting for?

We have been duped

A broad spectrum of society has been duped. Creating and maintaining dupes is a complex, fully integrated and well-funded psychoscience. Once subjects have become dupes, the duped state is difficult to reverse—but it can be done.

The human mind is quite malleable. In most cases parents begin forming our thoughts and core beliefs. The public education process further cements the conceptual foundations of society’s members.

Television is the number one tool of the dupers to mold our perception of reality. Popular music, magazines, radio, newspapers, the Internet, books and other information/indoctrination systems are also vital components of our duping. Whoever operates and controls these information streams lays the program in the public mind.

The science of propagating thought forms is now a major industry. Million dollar one-shot Superbowl ads have become almost as attractive as the game itself. And the commercial benefits of such programming can be counted out by the $millions.

The science of selling products is only equaled or exceeded by the science of selling war.

Those of us who have found reality to be inverse of the programs we have been fed, often have great difficulty convincing, or even just showing members of the programmed masses the evidence that they have been duped.

Many of the dupes among us simply have their minds glaze over and cannot comprehend new information that challenges their programming. Others react more aggressively to fend off the mental conflict that would occur should the paradigm of their programming develop a crack.

Subconsciously, the dupes among us know that, if one part of the program is shown to be false, other components, in time, will fall apart also. It is much easier to avoid any challenges to the program. You might say, much of our population has been duped into a "dupor."

The grand dupe

Dupery, the act or practice of duping, is rampant, especially in the political arena. Honest, objective analysis of almost any public subject will reveal a truth quite opposite to the claims of those in government, the media and the corporate sector.

Joseph Gobbles, the man who engineered the rise of Hitler, said a lie told often enough, eventually becomes the truth. Today, we have the mass media echo chamber—lies are told over and over on all frequencies, channels and pages—so the entire bandwidth into our brains is covered—until fiction becomes fact.

Such dupery has created our current societal conditioning: Security is being disarmed, searched and interrogated; freedom is more laws—and Arabs want to kill us all because they hate our freedom.

"Will that be paper or plastic; debit or credit?" The dollar, a coin of silver, is no longer spendable money.

Voting is the act of touching the screen, selecting from the available options of approved candidates, letting Diebold count and the media report the results.

Taxes are payments you "owe" according to a nine-million word tax code, that fails to define you as a taxpayer, converts and perverts the definition of "income" without any lawfully-ratified authority.

Courts of law are where we go to be ruled by men who disregard the rules and the rule of law.

The medical industry kills more people from malpractice than all the incompetent drivers on American roads, yet many have come to "believe" in their "cures."

If you have read this far into The Idaho Observer, without having your brain shut down from a media-installed, paradigm-protection program, you can probably list many more examples of modern dupery.

Crack in the paradigm

Those of us who have begun the unduping process on our own, usually had a pivotal event turn us around. Our perfect little world developed a crack—a crack in the paradigm. From that crack we were afforded a view, which created more cracks, until the entire paradigm shattered and fell away.

It may have been an attack on job, home or family. The medical, legal or administrative professions may have assaulted something or someone we hold dear. A personal or natural disaster may have uncontrovertibly shown that promises of government support or security were illusory. Or the facts proclaimed by our dupers didn’t match up with a clear and present reality.

The mind is like a computer in that it cannot function with contrary programming. Computers either freeze up or melt down; humans are a little more durable. We get cognitive dissonance, which causes the mind to rattle around in neutral until we figure out which "reboot" program is best for bringing our brains back online. As the dupers’ paradigm shatters, a new paradigm, based on our experience of reality, begins to self-install.

Support our dupes

The dupers’ paradigm is beginning to crack in the minds of the duped at an exponential rate. A lie told often enough may become the truth, but one lie requires another lie to cover it. Eventually, nothing but lies are told and the duper’s ruse becomes evident and unbelievable.

When was the last time someone in government told us the truth? The answer is becoming a distant memory. The dupers’ paradigm has major cracks and those who have been duped will need our support.

The dupe recovery kit

Supporting our dupes means helping them to finish cracking the shell of the dupers’ paradigm by providing them with information to facilitate the shift past an idle state of cognitive dissonance into the construction of their own new paradigm. Unfortunately, part of the dupers’ process was to dumb the population down to a state of minimal literacy. Newspapers such as this one have little effect on the well duped. Extracting and assimilating information by actually reading is an uncommon practice among the duped.

They have been blasted with information for decades. The TV screen in nearly every home penetrates the consciousness by captivating the audio and visual senses and lulling the mind into a receptive beta state.

The video media has much greater potential to reach out and touch the mind of the dupes. Telling them new facts or trying to get them to read is not nearly as effective as sitting them down with a video and letting them see for themselves. It gives them a sense of self-discovery and uses the same method in which most of their duped programming was received.

We can each start developing "dupe recovery kits": Collections of videos covering the spectrum of the duper’s plan to steal the nation, rule the planet, thin out the herd and make slavery feel like freedom. Some videos will be more effective than others, or more or less appropriate to different audiences. For example, I have noticed that 911 In Plane Site has a very positive effect and a high turnaround rate in the opinions of the duped with its just-the-facts style, presented as a question for all to see. Alex Jones videos, while jammed full of good information, may be too intense for the neophyte dupe. He covers a wide spectrum of subjects well, but his ranting, staccato style is not necessarily the best entry-level dupe recovery tool; save them for later recovery sessions.

Missing Presumed Dead (see below) is an excellent component of any dupe recovery kit. Develop a dupe recovery kit that covers a spectrum of subjects. Know your tools and be sensitive to your audience. It’s not easy for the comfortably numb to discover that most of their world has been upside down and inside out. The goal is to crack the dupers’ paradigm and help people rebuild their own reality with a minimum of pain, at a pace they can handle.

Support our dupes and help them break on through to the other side!

Biotechnology and nanotechnology:
the hard cell

"... In a climate of declining public trust in both government and industry, new approaches to increase the public's technology I.Q. are needed -- approaches that can bridge the credibility gap and scale-up rapidly to reach large segments of the population. An innovative word-of-mouth campaign could place nanotechnology into the world of everyday conversation, where messages are built on trust and understanding rather than hype and jargon."

-- David Rejeski, Director, Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies, "Hey, Have You Heard About Nanotechnology? Improve Nanotech Awareness through A Word-of-Mouth Campaign" Nanotechology Now

According to David Rejeski from the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies, what the nanotechnology field needs to fill the credibility gab is a good old-fashioned, word-of mouth marketing campaign built on trust and education. He is, of course, a spokesperson for the industry, and we assume that he is touting the beneficial claims of nanotechnology -- that is those applications of the technology that are designed to help fight disease, help in diagnostic work, and perhaps even clean beaches after an oil spill.

But, unfortunately for Mr. Rejeski it must be increasing hard to sell nanotechology and its twin sister, biotechnology, when articles like Ultramicro, nonlethal, and reversible: looking ahead to military biotechnology are so easily found in the public domain.

This article written by Chinese scientists Guo Ji-wei and Xue-sen Yang and published in the July-August, 2005 issue of Military Review explores the many multifaceted, pragmatic uses of biotechnology in future warfare. Here's an example of how these new emerging technologies in the hands of madmen can create Hieronymus Bosch-like nightmares:
"In the final analysis, war is simply human behavior that forces enemies to lose the power of resistance. Biotechnological weapons can cause destruction that is both more powerful and more civilized than that caused by conventional killing methods like gunpowder or nuclear weapons... A military attack, therefore, might wound an enemy's genes, proteins, cells, tissues, and organs, causing more damage than conventional weapons could. However, such devastating, nonlethal effects will require us to pacify the enemy through postwar reconstruction efforts and hatred control."
As far as warfare goes, using nano-bioweapons could be considered more humane than say dropping cluster bombs or phosphorus on Iraqi children or nuking entire cities. Biowarfare is much less messy -- no splattered brain parts or entrails to pick up, no clean-up crews needed to hose the blood off the streets, no burning flesh to assault your olfactory sensibilities; it's all very clean, precise and "civilized." All you need is a firm committed group of sociopaths willing to ensure their survival by targeting certain evildoers' genotypes or cells for death or disability.

But, let's not stop here as Guo Ji-wei and Xue-sen Yang are creative geniuses, so you won't want to miss these fanciful fantasies under "Possible Military Uses of Biotechnology":
"From the perspective of military medicine, proteomics, which examines the structure-function relationship at the molecular level, is a bridge between military goals and practical technologies. With the development of proteomics, we can discover and interpret the key proteins in any single human physiological function and the multiple physiological functions any single protein possesses. All of this will provide accurate models for military attack and make it possible to develop small-scale or ultramicro-scale destructive weapons."
And here they give us an example of what they mean by ultramicro-scale destructive weapons:
"... a microbullet out of a 1-[micro]m tungsten or gold ion, on whose surface plasmid DNA or naked DNA could be precipitated, and deliver the bullet via a gunpowder explosion, electron transmission, or high-pressured gas to penetrate the body surface. (10) We could then release DNA molecules to integrate with the host's cells through blood circulation and cause disease or injury by controlling genes."
Lovely. And, how about death and disease by stealth:
"Modern biotechnology makes it possible to combine two or more pathogenic genes and place them inside a susceptible living body to create a multiple-vulnerating effect. In addition, delaying the time required for a causative agent to take effect is possible by using a living body with a relatively longer incubation period or a pathogenic living body that produces no symptoms when inserted into the human body."
What's particularly interesting is that this article is listed under the U.S. Army's Professional Writings Collection and Guo Ji-wei is Director of the Department of Medical Affairs, Southwest Hospital, Chongqing in the People's Republic of China. Does anyone find it odd the U.S Army CGSC is copywriting work from a director of medical affairs from the People's Republic of China?

What's clear is that there is lack of condemnation for this kind of hypothetical warfare on the Army's website, thereby giving the impression that these programs are acceptable to some. And, according to international law professor and bioweapons expert, Francis Boyle, these are exactly the kinds of programs that the DoD would be working on today as they've gotten the nod, and the funding, by the neo-con Bush administration.
"...the Pentagon 'is now gearing up to fight and "win" biological warfare' pursuant to two Bush national strategy directives adopted 'without public knowledge and review' in 2002.

For fiscal years 2001-2004, the federal government funded $14.5 billion 'for ostensibly 'civilian' biowarfare-related work alone,' a 'truly staggering' sum, Boyle wrote.

Another $5.6 billion was voted for 'the deceptively-named 'Project BioShield,' under which Homeland Security is stockpiling vaccines and drugs to fight anthrax, smallpox and other bioterror agents, wrote Boyle. Protection of the civilian population is, he said, 'one of the fundamental requirements for effectively waging biowarfare.' "

--Bush "Developing Illegal Bioterror Weapons" for Offensive Use
Now that we know that these terrible programs are being contemplated and developed by the dark side of humanity, we should consider Mr. Rejeski marketing campaign again. He is right about one thing: we do need an innovative word-of-mouth campaign to inform the public about the threats of nanotechnology and biotechnology.

Pandora's box is open and there is no way to get the lid back on it except by calling for a general moratorium on nanotechnology and biotechnology research and development. Today many scientists familiar with the technology are doing just that (see Size Matters! The Case for a Global Moratorium ).

Let's start our own innovative, word-of-mouth marketing campaign in which we call out the dangers of nanotechnology and biotechnology and call for a moratorium on research and development. All you have to do is email this article to ten of your friends and ask them to forward it to ten more of their friends, and so on and so on. And, the best thing about this, it's viral campaign you can feel good about.

Your application for living Buddha status has been denied.

(From the decree "Management Measures for the Reincarnation of Living Buddhas in Tibetan Buddhism," an order issued last year by China's State Administration of Religious Affairs. Translated by the International Campaign for Tibet as reported in Harper's magazine)

"The China Buddhist Association will issue living-Buddha permits. When the reincarnated living Buddha has been installed, the management at his monastery shall submit a training plan to the local Buddhist Association, which shall report to the provincial people's government for approval.

Living Buddhas that have historically been recognized by drawing lots from the golden urn shall have their reincarnated soul-children recognized by drawing lots from the golden urn. Requests not to use the golden urn shall be reported by the provincial people's government to the State Administration of Religious Affairs for approval.

Once a reincarnated living Buddha soul-child has been recognized, it shall be reported to the provincial people's government for approval; those with a great impact shall be reported to the State Administration of Religious Affairs for approval; those with a particularly great impact shall be reported to the State Council for Approval. When there is debate over the size of a living Buddha's impact, the China Buddhist Association shall officiate.

Reincarnated living Buddhas may not reestablish feudal privileges that have already been abolished.

Applicants to be reincarnated living Buddhas may not be reincarnated if the provincial people's government does not allow reincarnations."

I caught this is this month's Harper's magazine and found it quite illustrative of a government gone completely bonkers, very much like our own, but degrees more comical. Such decrees, like the Buddha, are also quite enlightening for what they tell you about totalitarian states and their attempt to control everything about you, including your right to reincarnate should you wish.

One can only imagine that if they are giving decrees like this now then it is not too long before travelers are accosted by Astral-Body Projection Police: "Are you traveling to another dimension, sir?... May I see your Outer-Body Projection Passport?"... "You must stay earthbound until you get the proper authorization from the State Council for Etheric Travel Association."

Can this dialogue be far away?

While we are all so concerned about keeping religious fanatics out of government we miss the obvious fact that the State is attempting to becoming our God on earth. I recently happened upon this little nugget about our wannabe-divine State:

"A Pastor has come forward to blow the whistle on a nationwide FEMA program which is training Pastors and other religious representatives to become secret police enforcers who teach their congregations to "obey the government" in preparation for a declaration of martial law, property and firearm seizures, and forced relocation."

The article reports that the government is instructing pastors to recite Romans 13 which according to a Dr. Durelll Tuberville justifies flock allegiance “because the government’s established by the Lord, you know. And, that’s what we believe in the Christian faith. That’s what’s stated in the scripture.”

Secret FEMA Plan To Use Pastors as Pacifiers in Preparation For Martial Law

So, the State wants to be your divine shepherd should we have martial law. They will tell you not to fear those men carrying M16s with the bear claws on their hats as they are there to protect you and guide you to paradise should a plague of pestilence fall upon you. And, while you are at Halliburton Camp 322, the good folks from FEMA will give you the latest vaccine against the latest man-made virus -- and a happy meal -- compliments of your tax-financed holy government and Searles Pharmaceuticals.

"Your passport, Sir?... You want to go to a different reality? ...You will need to get the proper permit from the Ministry of Permissible Realities. Just walk through door 101, take the blue pill and plug into the machine."
