"Who knoweth himself, knoweth all things in himself."
-The Chaldæan Oracles of Zoroaster, translated by W. Wynn Westcott


things known and things unknown

Donald Rumsfeld Unknown Unknowns !

Errol Morris on Donald Rumsfeld:
'One of the strangest interviews I've ever done'


Reports that say something hasn't happened are always interesting to me,

because as we know, there are known knowns;
there are things we know we know.

We also know there are known unknowns;
that is to say, we know there are some things we do not know.

But there are also unknown unknowns,
the ones we don't know we don't know.



replace fear of the unknown with curiosity

the long struggle

Donald Henry Rumsfeld (BB /CFR)

"Our nation is engaged in what promises to be a long struggle in the global war on terror.

In this war the most critical battles may not be in the mountains of Afghanistan - or the streets of Iraq but in newsrooms in New York, London, Cairo and elsewhere.

Our enemies have skillfully adapted to fighting wars in today's media age (propaganda), but for the most part we - our government, the media or our society in general have not.

Our government is only beginning to adapt its operations for the 21st century.

For the most part, our government still functions as a five-and-dime store in an EBay world.

The growing number of media outlets in many parts of the world still have relatively immature standards and practices that too often serve to inflame and distort rather than to explain and inform.

al-Qa`ida and other extremist movements have utilized these forums for many years, successfully adding more poison to the Muslim public's view of the West, but we have barely even begun to compete in reaching their audiences.

Let there be no doubt that the longer it takes to put a strategic communications framework (propaganda) into place, the more we can be be filled by the enemy and by hostile news sources who most assuredly will not paint an accurate image of what is actually taking place.

We have become somewhat more adept in these areas, but progress is slow.

In Iraq, for example, the United States military command, working closely with the Iraqi government and the US Embassy, has sought nontraditional means to provide accurate information to the Iraqi people in the face of an aggressive campaign of disinformation (propaganda).

Yet this has been portrayed as inappropriate: for example, the allegations of "buying news."

The resulting explosion of critical media stories then causes all activity, all initiative, to stop.

Improving our efforts will likely mean embraing new institutions to engage people around the world.

During the Cold War, institutions such as the United States Information Agency and Radio Free Europe proved to be valuable instruments for the US.

We need to consider the possibility of new organizations and programs that can serve a similarly valuable role in the war on terror.

Although the enemy is increasingly skillful at manipulating the media and using the tools of communications to its advantage, it should be noted that we have an advantage as well. And that is, quite simply, that truth is on our side. Ultimately, the truth wins out.

I believe with every bone in my body that free people, exposed to sufficient information, will, over time, find their way to the right decision.

We are fighting a battle in which the survival of our free way of life is at stake.

It is a test of wills, and it will be won or lost with our public and the publics of free nations around the world.

We need to do all we can to correct the lies being told, shatter the appeal of the enemy and attract supporters to our noble and necessary efforts to defeat violent extremism around the globe."

"It's the respect for the individual to make the right decision which I believe is at the root of communications." - Chris Komisarjevsky, retired CEO of public relations giant Burson-Marsteller, previously held leadership position at Hill & Knowlton

"I found Donald Rumsfeld's article frightening to say the least. Donald Henry Rumsfeld is basically calling for everyone to get in line and support the George Walker Bush agenda, which is based on lies, while stating, "ultimately, the truth wins out." This is exactly why we need a free, unbiased media and an educated citizenry. One can't help but think that Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels is applauding Donald Rumsfeld's piece from the grave." - Chris Wolfe

"Bigger and better spin control will not convince increasingly skeptical Americans or long incredulous citizens of the world that the war in Iraq is a vital "battle in which the survival of our free way of life is at stake," as Donald Rumsfeld continues to insist. Free people all over the Earth have already been exposed to sufficient information to find their way to the truth: Donald Rumsfeld's arrogance, disregard for life, duplicity and incompetence helped pave the way to unnecessary war. Bigger and better spin control will not change this fact nor the minds of the Earth's free-thinking citizens."- Paul Nichols

"I've worked with Donald Henry Rumsfeld three times in my life. I've been to each of his houses, in Chicago, Taos, Santa Fe, Santo Domingo, and Las Vegas. I'm very, very fond of him, but I'm crushed by his performance. Donald Henry Rumsfeld certainly fooled me."- Kenneth Adelman

aspartame

1977 to 1985 Donald Henry Rumsfeld serves as CEO, president, and then chairman of G.D. Searle & Company. Under Donald Henry Rumsfeld Searle got the FDA approval for the controversial artificial sweetener, aspartame, which it marketed as NutraSweet. Donald Henry Rumsfeld is believed to have earned around $12 million from Searle's sale to Monsanto.

"When the temperature of ASPARTAME exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME converts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants. The methanol toxicity mimics, among other conditions, multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus. Many people were being diagnosed in error. Although multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, methanol toxicity is! Systemic lupus has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers. The victim usually does not know that the ASPARTAME is the culprit. He or she continues it's use; irritating the lupus to such a degree that it may become a life-threatening condition. We have seen patients with systemic lupus become asymptotic, once taken off diet sodas. In cases of those diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, most of the symptoms disappear. We've seen many cases where vision loss returned and hearing loss improved markedly. This also applies to cases of tinnitus and fibromyalgia. If you are using ASPARTAME (Nutra Sweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc) and you suffer from fibromyalgia, spasms, shooting pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, unexplainable depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss you probably have ASPARTAME poisoning!' - Rhonda Gessner

2007 The federal government procures $1 billion worth of Tamiflu from Gilead Sciences to "protect" the country in the case of a bird flu pandemic - enough for one third of the population. Between 1997 and 2007 there was 349 reported cases of bird flu (H5N1) and at least 216 deaths. The death rate of the human population from bird flu is approximately 1 out of 27,800,000. Tamiflu costs $100 for a recommended 5 day prescription. Tamiflu, now the Roche Holding AG drug for influenza, could not fight most infections diagnosed in the American flu season of 2008. More than half of the flu viruses analyzed were of the H1N1 strain. Virtually all the H1N1 viruses the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tested, 72 of 73, were Tamiflu-resistant according to Joseph Bresee, chief of influenza epidemiology and prevention.

FDA suggests Tamiflu should carry a revised warning adequately explaining the delirium, hallucinations and psychotic behavior experienced by hundreds of patients taking Tamiflu in America and Japan. The erratic behavior was more severe in children.

Prior to joining the cabinet of George Walker Bush, Donald Henry Rumsfeld served on the board of directors of several corporations:

Secretary of Defense for George Walker Bush

Donald Rumsfeld implemented the Rumsfeld Doctrine which sought to increase force readiness and decrease the amount of supplies required to maintain forces, by reducing the numbers in a theater. This is done mainly by using LAVs (Light Armoured Vehicles) to scout for enemies who are then destroyed via airstrikes. Afghanistan and the Iraq wars are considered the two closest implementations of the Rumsfeld Doctrine.

Rumsfeld authorized the mistreatment of detainees at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, authorized the army to break the Geneva Conventions by not registering all prisoners and authorized civilian contractors to use techniques such as sleep deprivation during interrogation in memos and letters according to former US Army Brigadier General Janis Karpinski.

"The methods consisted of making prisoners stand for long periods, sleep deprivation ... playing music at full volume, having to sit in uncomfortably ... Rumsfeld authorized these specific techniques. The handwritten signature was above Rumsfeld's printed name and in the same handwriting in the margin was written: "Make sure this is accomplished" - former US Army Brigadier General Janis Karpinski

Former US Army Brigadier General Janis Karpinski said in November 2006 she was ready to testify against Rumsfeld if a suit filed by civil rights groups in Germany over Abu Ghraib led to a full investigation.

In a memo titled "Illustrative New Courses of Action" issued November 6, 2006 Donald Henry Rumsfeld suggested that one way to solve the Iraq problem is by paying off key political and religious leaders so they would be more compliant with American occupying forces.

"On the eve of the invasion, as it began to dawn on a few US officials that the price for rebuilding Iraq would be vastly greater than they had been told, the degree of miscalculation was illustrated in an encounter between Donald Henry Rumsfeld, then the defense secretary, and Jay Garner, the retired lieutenant general who had hastily been named the chief of what would be a short-lived civilian authority called the Office of Reconstruction and Humanitarian Assistance. Garner presented Rumsfeld with several alternative rebuilding plans, including one that would include projects across Iraq.

"What do you think that'll cost?" Rumsfeld asked of the more expansive plan.

"I think it's going to cost billions of dollars," Garner said.

"My friend," Rumsfeld replied, "if you think we're going to spend a billion dollars of our money over there, you are sadly mistaken."

Before that year was out, the United States had appropriated more than $20 billion for the reconstruction.

The secondary effects of the invasion and its aftermath were among the most important factors that radically changed the outlook. Tables in the history show that measures of things like the production of electricity and oil; public access to potable water, mobile and landline telephone service; and the presence of Iraqi security forces all plummeted at least 70 percent, and in some cases all the way to zero, in the weeks after the invasion. Subsequent tables in the history give a fast-forward view of what happened as the avalanche of money tumbled into Iraq over the next five years. By the time a sovereign Iraqi government took over from the Americans in June 2004, none of those services - with a single exception, mobile phones - had returned to prewar levels. And by the time of the security improvements in 2007 and 2008, electricity output had, at best, a precarious 10 percent lead on its levels under Saddam Hussein; oil production was still below prewar levels; and access to potable water had increased about 30 percent, although with the nation's ruined piping system it was unclear how much actually reached people's homes uncontaminated." - James Glanz and T. Christian Miller

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought. All factual information presented on this web site is believed to be true and accurate and is presented as originally presented in print media which may or may not have originally presented the facts truthfully. Opinion and thoughts have been adapted, edited, corrected, redacted, combined, added to, re-edited and re-corrected as nearly all opinion and thought has been throughout time but has been done so in the spirit of the original writer with the intent of making his or her thoughts and opinions clearer and relevant to the reader in the present time.
