First of all, let me define my terms. In this article, the Abyss is where the federal government is taking the soul of the republic. Torture, murder, pre-emptive war – all lead the soul of the republic further into the Abyss. Since 9/11, the new Pearl Harbor, “everything changed”. (See page 51 for the referenced phrase) In actuality, change had begun years before and has been accelerating. The Defenders of the Abyss are those who wish to bring the republic into the bottomless pit of amorality and total control. They are the ones who literally get away with murder and will do anything to remain in power and keep power within their confines.
The ‘90s brought:
– Gulf War I, a war that was waged against a foe who had recently been a friend but who had grown out of favor. He was given the green light to go into Kuwait, then was attacked for doing so. Once the “war” was over, crushing sanctions on Iraq prevented the government from rebuilding the infrastructure destroyed by the invasion and was a great contributor to the deaths of over 100,000 Iraqi civilians.
– 1992 gave us Ruby Ridge and Lon Horiuchi, a FBI sniper who would play a prominent role in another government power play later. As you recall, murders were committed and celebrated here.
– 1994 brought the Waco incident with the incineration and murdering of religious fundamentalists in Texas. This was where Lon made his next appearance. Another cause for celebration of murder and a move further down the Abyss.
– 1995 and the Oklahoma City bombing. BATF had completely infiltrated Elohim City, the origin of the “bombing” but could not/did not stop it. Bombs were reported being taken from the building, a prominent bomb expert gave evidence of the physical impossibility of a fertilizer bomb being able to create such destruction on its own, the carting away of debris before a proper investigation could be conducted. A false flag gone bad? Further down the Abyss.
The new century has brought the US government into pre-emptive war, torture, and rendition. Along with this move has been, despite the rhetoric of an open and transparent government President (a Defender of the Abyss), a monumental growth in secret government operations. This brings me to the meat of this article…Bradley Manning.
After reading the definition of a whistleblower, defined in PPD-19, and, from what I have gleaned from various accounts, Bradley Manning should be classified as a whistleblower. He, apparently, did notify his chain of command of the atrocities committed and other inconsistencies he had seen. This report, however, fell on deaf ears and he was told to basically shut up and color. After he realized nothing was going to change by going through the proper channels, he decided it was so important to the American public that he would find a way to get the information to them. Wikileaks was apparently that conduit.
Bradley Manning was cooked from the beginning. The defenders of the abyss wasted no time in branding him a traitor and accusing him of aiding the enemy. The President, his commander-in-chief and that of the judicial system who would try him, convicted him before his pre-trial confinement torture had begun. His chances of a fair court martial were nil.
While Manning was not convicted of aiding the enemy (which carries with it the death penalty), he was convicted of enough other charges, such as the Espionage Act of 1917 (a muzzle on the press during WWI that was never repealed), that the maximum sentences will put him in prison for over a century. A bit of irony is that, as the American public becomes more aware, they (we) are the actual enemy. In this instance, Bradley Manning would be guilty of aiding the enemy and the other charges…not so much.
It has also been noted recently that those in the military who have murdered civilians in Iraq and gone to trial for those murders, have not only received short sentences (less than 10 years), their convictions have been overturned and they have been released. So, if you murder for the government, you are more likely to get better treatment and early release, if not outright overturning of sentence…slipping deeper into the abyss.
In light of what has happened to Bradley Manning, and in contrast to what has happened to Clapper and Alexander for perjury in Congress (absolutely nothing), is it any wonder that Edward Snowden would seek asylum.
Both Manning and Snowden are examples to the military and civilian sector that the defenders of the abyss will not tolerate the disinfecting light of truth.
Below are some quotes to ponder:
Why was it so important to German officials to go after people like Hubener? The answer lies in the words of Dr. Joseph M. Goebbels, Hitler’s propaganda minister:
The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the TRUTH becomes the greatest ENEMY OF THE STATE.
Here is the Golden Rule of sound citizenship, the first and greatest lesson in the study of politics:
You get the same order of criminality from any State to which you give power to exercise it; and whatever power you give the State to do things FOR you carries with it the equivalent power to do things TO you.
A citizenry which has learned that one short lesson has but little more left to learn. Stripping the American State of the enormous power it has acquired is a full-time job for our citizens and a stirring one; and if they attend to it properly they will have no energy to spare for fighting communism, or for hating Hitler, or for worrying about South America or Spain, or for anything whatever, except what goes on right here in the United States.

Is anyone surprised at the closure of the embassies – all due to what the NSA found by hoovering up our electronic data? Be prepared for a false flag or two just to give the impression that the threat was real. “Land of the Free, Home of the Brave” – certainly cannot refer to the government. The Abyss must be defended at all costs.
