We are truly in a war. It is not the war we imagine we are in, which is the way 
our true adversaries want it. It is not a foreign war against a foreign enemy. 
It is a war on consciousness, a war on our own minds. The global war on terror 
that is being fought around the world is an embodied reflection in the material 
world of a deeper, more fundamental war that is going on in the realm of 
consciousness itself.

We have the most criminal regime in all of our history wreaking unspeakable 
horror on the entire planet, while simultaneously waging war on the 
consciousness of its own citizens - US. If we aren¹t aware of this, we are 
unwittingly playing into, supporting and complicit in the evil that is being 
perpetrated in our name.

A government¹s war on the consciousness of its own citizens is by no means 
unique to the Bush administration. Abusing power over others so as to limit 
their freedom is an archetypal process that has been endlessly re-enacted by 
governments throughout history in various forms. With the Bush administration, 
however, the pathological aspect of this process has become so exaggerated and 
amped up to such a degree that it is just about impossible not to notice its 
staggering malignancy. With the Bush administration, the underlying evil that 
has played out in our government over many years is becoming overwhelmingly 
obvious for all to see. With the Bush administration, the underlying evil that 
informs systems of government that are based on ³power over² instead of ³liberty
for² is coming out from hiding in the shadows. Instead of being acted out 
underground, our government is acting out this evil above ground, in plain sight
for all who are courageous enough to look.

Impeaching Bush and Co. ultimately won¹t change anything unless we deal with the
corrupt powers which control and direct them. George Bush is just a 
finger-puppet of the hidden hand which animates him. Bush only has apparent 
power, as he himself is a minion of far more powerful predator-like forces whose
nefarious interests he serves. Whether we call it the illuminati, the global 
elite, a shadow government, or a secret cabal, there is no doubt that there are 
darker, self-serving forces that have insinuated themselves into and taken over 
our government. The terrorists that we should be worried about are domestic 
terrorists who are actually implementing their agendas from deep within our very
system of government itself.

The United States Government itself has become a ³front² for the underlying 
military-industrial-financial crime syndicate that animates it. This is not to 
say that there aren¹t many good, well-meaning people in our government ­ they 
are simply prohibited by the very nature of the corrupt system they are in from 
reforming it. Our system of government is rigged in such a way so that there is 
no way to transform the system within the system itself.

The underlying core of our government has become rotten such that the entire 
operation simply feeds into and is an expression of the same underlying 
corruption. All of the scandals continually coming out are like the superficial 
skin rash of a much deeper systemic disease, like a cancer that is infecting the
greater body politic. Citizens who are not aware of our government¹s insidious 
intrusions into our lives are unwittingly feeding the corruption they are 
looking away from in their very act of looking away.

The ³powers² that have taken over our government have become concentrated and 
centralized in just a few elite hands, proving how easy it is for the few to 
control the many. They almost control all the levers of power: financial, 
political and judicial. In this war on consciousness, these powers-that-be are 
using the most advanced mind-control technology that our world has ever known to
make its takeover complete. The essence of mind-control is information control, 
which is one thing our overly secretive current administration is very good at.


The private interests that control our government have an incredible 
mind-control/propaganda machine at their disposal in the form of the mainstream 
media, which if not quite fully owned and controlled, is certainly under their 
³influence² enough to serve their underlying self-serving agenda. George Orwell 
once said that omission is the greatest form of lie ­ this perfectly describes 
the corporate owned media of today which is nothing other than the propaganda 
organ of the state. The corporate world and our government are becoming 
indistinguishable, which is one of the hallmarks of fascism, or more accurately 
­ corporatism.

In addition to information, our government is adept at putting out 
dis-information, whose intention is to create distractions and confusion so as 
to cover its tracks and hide its true intentions. It will purposely leak stories
that are not true simply to cover-up what it is really doing. By putting out 
misleading information, the government hides behind its self-generated 
smokescreen like an octopus squirting ink.

Quite often, right at the moment when people¹s focus is moving towards some area
of criminality in the White House, the administration will even create a 
diversionary event for the public to put their attention on. Memories of those 
color-coded terror alerts that always seemed to happen right when something bad 
was starting to happen for the Bush administration come to mind. In creating 
distractions, our government is able to steer our collective attention in 
directions that allow it to successfully accomplish its malevolent goal of 
grabbing all the power it can get.

In a diabolical ploy, the administration will even feed stories to a compliant 
press, and then reference these stories as justification for enacting its 
pre-planned agenda. One glaring example is when the administration fed Judith 
Miller of the New York Times stories about Iraq¹s weapons of mass destruction. 
Once this propaganda appeared on the front page of the Times, the administration
was only too happy to use it as evidence for why we should go to war.

WMD could easily stand for ³Weapons of Mind Deception², as our own government is
continually trying to ³Deceive² our ³Minds², which is the battlefield in which 
the war on consciousness is being fought. We are all on the front lines in the 
war on consciousness, whether we know it or not. Instead of shooting us, our 
government is using cutting-edge mind-control technology to psychically 
emasculate us. In order to be able to deal with the evil that the Bush regime is
perpetrating, we first have to become acquainted with that very same potential 
evil in ourselves so as to be able to recognize it in the outside world. The way
to vanquish our adversary is to be found hidden within the very nature of our 
own awareness, which contains the key to its own freedom.

The corporate-mainstream media ³captivates² our attention, capturing a part of 
our self-reflective, discriminative awareness, thereby restricting the range of 
our conscious awareness, which is what hypnotism is all about. Once the 
attention of the masses becomes entranced, the corporate/government media can 
then ³play with² our mind. This unholy trinity of corporate/government/media can
create an obsessive fixation on certain superficial events that ³seize² the 
collective psyche. For example, it feeds the masses sensationalized stories such
as Anna Nicole Smith ad nauseam so as to divert our attention from the evil that
is being done behind the scenes in our name.

Ex-CIA director Allen Dulles used to say that the most effective way to disguise
a secret is to pretend to openly share information. The Bush administration 
isn¹t interested in solving problems as much as creating good PR (Public 
Relations) for itself. With one hand the Bush administration will try to appear 
like it is openly sharing information and being transparent, while with its 
other hand it will be actively obstructing the very process it is seemingly 
supporting. A vivid example is the government¹s 9/11 commission, whose aim was 
allegedly to shed light on what happened on 9/11, while covertly ­ behind the 
scenes ­ the Bush administration was doing everything it could to hinder the 
commission¹s inquiries (see, for example, 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and 
Distortions, by David Ray Griffin). All one has to do is investigate the 
numerous ties to the core cabal of the neocon Bush administration that the 
members of the 9/11 commission have and the degree to which it was a deliberate 
operation to obscure the truth becomes apparent. It was as if the White House 
was investigating itself; the foxes truly guarding the henhouse. The 9/11 
commission and its report, just like the Warren Commission and its report on the
Kennedy assassination, was a façade, a show, a display in which it appeared like
our government was giving us what we wanted, while actually being part of a 
deceptive game of smoke-and-mirrors. It is like a magician has hypnotized us, 
and is stealing what¹s in our pockets while they have us under their trance in 
which we believe they are serving us.

As if by a perverse Jedi mind-trick, the Bush administration has bewitched us 
into believing that it controls the national dialogue, when in a democracy the 
opposite is actually true. One of many examples ­ when confronted with 
overwhelming evidence that we have been torturing our adversaries, Bush responds
by saying he ³rejects² that claim, and the conversation stops right there and 
moves on to other, more superficial topics. Our government is supposed to 
represent us, which is to say that they are our employees. Bush has turned this 
around and put himself in the role of the dictator with us as his subjects. And 
somehow we have allowed him to get away with this. There is no escaping our 
individual and collective complicity in this sad state of affairs.

One difference between what is happening in our country and the state-controlled
media of the old Soviet Union, is that in the Soviet Union, most people were 
quite aware that what was being presented to them by their corrupt government as
news was nothing but mind-warping propaganda. Many Americans have fallen so 
under the spell of the Bush regime¹s criminal lies that they don¹t even know 
they are being lied to. It is like we are living in a land of state-controlled 
zombies who think they are free citizens of a free country.

It is as if millions of our fellow citizens have fallen asleep, as if they have 
become hypnotized and brainwashed by the powers-that-beŒs incessant ³managing² 
and ³massaging² of reality. These powers simply manipulate an already gullible 
and highly suggestible public into a game of ³divide and conquer.² They get rich
off of other¹s blood - they incite conflict, and covertly support both sides, as
they themselves reap the benefit of the conflict.

The corporate war machine, which is co-dependently entangled with our 
government, profits wildly from our invading other sovereign countries. The 
government-military-industrial complex¹s solution to the very problem that they 
created by instigating wars  ­ more war! It¹s completely sick and totally 
insane. And we, in our dulled denial ­ like hypnotized sheep - simply go along 
and allow the whole parasitic enterprise to be fed by offering our sons and 
daughters as fodder. To the extent that we are not shedding light on the utter 
criminality and insanity of what the Bush administration is doing and saying 
³No,² we are all complicit in feeding our own genocide.

Bush and our Congressional leaders are mouthpieces for the advertising campaign 
of distortion and falsehood that is being ³bomb-arded² into our psyches on a 
daily basis. Our ³leaders² repetitive slogans and incantations brand and imprint
themselves deep into our unconscious, where many who do not have enough psychic 
resistance fall under the spell. (please see Chapter 8 ­ ³Breaking Bush¹s 
Spell², in my book The Madness of George W. Bush: A Reflection of our Collective
Psychosis). People¹s ability to discern truth from fiction has been rendered 
inoperative by our own government¹s pattern of routinely taking liberty with the
truth. Government propaganda has inverted the perception of what is actually 
happening, as lies are presented as truths, and up is portrayed as down in a 
truly Orwellian universe of confounding doublespeak. Through the ³Big Lie² ­ 
which is based on that the bigger the lie, the harder it is for people to see 
the truth - the government has transformed myth into seeming fact, and has 
achieved its goal of muddling our minds so as to dis-empower us.

Many of us haven¹t developed the psychic immunity to be able to fully ward off 
the toxic effects of our government¹s covert, fear-based psychological warfare. 
An expression of the success of our government¹s psy-ops against US is the fact 
that there¹s so little awareness about the government¹s assault on our minds 
that it¹s hardly even a part of our national dialogue. The insidiousness of the 
government¹s covert manipulation of our minds is even found in the very term 
³Global War on Terror². ³The Global War on Terror² is a crazy-making, 
self-contradictory statement, as we can never stop terror with a war ­ on the 
contrary, wars induce terror! This term carries with it a false and 
self-negating premise that if we accept we¹ve already given away our power. If 
we leave this underlying assumption unquestioned, we unwittingly allow them to 
frame the agenda on their terms. We have then already fallen under their spell 
without knowing it, as our capacity to think and respond creatively is 
undermined. Our inability to creatively respond to the war on our consciousness 
is an expression of being immobilized in fear as if frozen in trauma. The war on
terror is really a war on our psyche. The war on terror is ultimately about 
control ­ control of our minds.

What Bush and our Congressional leaders are doing is so morally outrageous that 
it is literally off the charts of accepted, ³normal², ethical, sane human 
behavior. In the words of French poet Andre Chenier, Bush and Co. are committing
³crimes that make the laws tremble,² as they are covertly undermining our very 
legal and political system itself. The corruption that has infected our body 
politic is like a virus that is exploiting weaknesses in our political immune 
system so as to feed and spread its pathology.

Those of us who are somewhat sane can easily lack the imagination for the depth 
of depravity that the Bush administration regularly acts out in the world. Our 
lack of imagination works to the government¹s advantage, as it allows them to 
continue to act out the darkness in a manner which is incomprehensible to us. 
This is why the great doctor of the soul C. G. Jung counseled us to develop an 
³imagination for evil,² as being able to imagine the scope of evil that human 
beings can fall prey to and act out empowers us to see it clearly and thereby 
deal with it more effectively.

Our government¹s lying and criminality is so pervasive that we have become 
desensitized to their corruption. Their evil has become so ³normalized,² that 
just like someone watching TV becomes numb and anesthetized to the violence, we 
have become desensitized to the horror of what Bush and his cronies are doing 
right in front of our very eyes day after day. We¹ve learned ­ or, shall I say, 
become programmed - to accept the fact that the Bush administration is almost 
always lying, for, as we are told ³All governments lie².


Bush and Co., with the help of the US Supreme Court and the approval of 
Congress, rigged the 2000 and 2004 elections (see, for example, Fooled Again by 
Mark Crispin Miller). Then, with the help of the corporate media which is 
dependent on the good graces of military and government budgets and operations, 
Bush and Co. put out mind-numbing propaganda that no such hostile takeover had 
even taken place, to the point where after a little while most people forgot 
that anything out of the ordinary had occurred. The government¹s propaganda 
machine plays with our minds, putting us in a somnambulistic state so that we 
eventually begin to accept the version of reality (in our example, that Bush has
been ³elected² to be our president) that serves its underlying agenda.

Once the office of ³perception management² convinces a critical mass of people 
of a particular viewpoint, there is a ³consensus² or ³agreement² that is reached
among the masses as to what is objectively true. The agreed upon version of 
reality takes on a ³weight² and becomes the established dogma of what is 
collectively imagined to be really happening. Like a ³religious² truth, it is 
irrationally believed like an act of faith by its card-carrying members, even if
overwhelming evidence points to the contrary. Anyone who doesn¹t buy into the 
arbitrarily established story is marginalized and demonized, and either called 
crazy, a conspiracy theorist, or even a terrorist (³You¹re either with us or 
you¹re with the enemy²).

If only one person believed the propaganda-created consensus version of reality,
they¹d be thought of as crazy.  If a small group of people believed it, they¹d 
be thought of as a cult. When a certain critical mass of people irrationally 
believe this fictionalized version of reality (in our case, that Bush has been 
³elected² by the people) to be objectively true, however, they are considered 

Mass psychology then becomes the order of the day, as our species, animated and 
inspired by fear ­ which Bush and his regime are only too happy to cultivate - 
reverts to the primitive psychology of the herd. A collective amnesia ensues, 
continually fed by a self-generating web of endless denial, as the manufactured 
consent is recreated anew every moment. A field of force which literally resists
conscious reflection becomes conjured up around those who have fallen under the 
seductive spell of the agreed upon and artificially constructed consensus 
reality. Anyone reflecting back their unconscious condition is considered to be 
the enemy. Dissociating from their own darkness, they fight with it outside of 
themselves as it is projected into and reflected back by the world. Believing 
the agreed-upon fantasy, they collectively fall into their unconscious together 
and reinforce each other¹s delusions in a self-perpetuating feedback loop, which
is another way of saying that they have fallen into a collective psychosis.

Bush was not elected by the people. The military-industrial-financial crime 
syndicate¹s minions and operatives had already insinuated themselves into key 
positions of power so as to accomplish their long-planned for covert takeover of
the government. Some of their cronies had already infiltrated the Supreme Court,
where they literally derailed the democratic process and decided, with no basis 
in law, to unconstitutionally invest themselves with the authority of bestowing 
the election upon Bush. Bush¹s seeming ³election by the people² was in fact a 
strategically implemented political coup d¹etat. Very few even noticed this act 
of violence because of the criminal syndicate¹s control of the mainstream media.
Their propaganda machine succeeded in managing our perceptions just the way they
wanted, which is a polite way of saying they successfully pulled the wool over 
most of our eyes, or pulled the rug out from under us without too many of us 
even noticing.

In a diabolical feedback loop, the underlying crime syndicate, by putting out 
propaganda (that Bush has been elected president) creates the very situation 
(Bush becoming president) which confirms the truth of their propaganda, like in 
a self-fulfilling prophecy. Being in a position of power, they are tapping into 
how they can shape the world in their own image, which they are imposing on the 
world through forceful means. They have in some perverse way begun to access how
they can seemingly manipulate and create ³reality².

Because of their position of power, these sick few can control the masses by 
manipulating events in the world, as well as playing with our perceptions. They 
are tapping into how in managing our perceptions, they can literally create 
events, and in creating events, they can manage our perceptions. This is a 
divine secret, but in tapping into it with an impure heart, where power is 
prioritized over love, it is always destined for failure. In the end, these 
black magicians will ultimately self-destruct, there is no question about this 
whatsoever. It is simply a question of mitigating the disaster as they create 
their own ruin.

Another example of our government¹s attack on our consciousness: After the 9/11 
attacks, there is only one thing certain ­ the official story put out by our 
government, itself a conspiracy theory, is not true. There is no question about 
this to any thinking person who has even minimally studied the evidence. (see, 
for example,  911truth.org). The fact that our own government is not telling the
truth to us about what happened on 9/11, as well as actively obstructing any 
investigation into what actually did happen, is a huge red flag ­ why would our 
own government be lying, and covering up their lie? Who knows (maybe the 
shadow?) at this point whether 9/11 was a false flag operation, covertly 
perpetrated by our own government against us, or whether they knew about it 
beforehand but simply allowed it to happen so as to gain political advantage? 
Something¹s very fishy about the whole thing. The fact that our country, except 
on the margins, is not even having an open discussion about what really happened
on 9/11 ­ the official version put out by the government is blindly accepted by 
millions of people as the objective truth - is another expression of our 
government shaping our dialogue, both nationally and within our own minds. The 
government¹s distorted story about what happened on 9/11 is itself an expression
of the deeper and more general underlying conspiracy of our government to 
defraud us of the truth.

The last thing this criminal enterprise wants is for us to see what it is doing.
These criminal war lords want us to believe that we live in a democracy. For 
example, in a diabolical sleight of hand, we are given the illusory stage-show 
of free elections, while there is overwhelming evidence that the elections were 
rigged. Even to be in a position to run for president you have to be able to 
raise hundreds of millions of dollars ­ this itself is the entrance fee to the 
game. In addition, the only people who would be allowed by these robber barons 
to be in a position of power such as ³Commander-in-Chief² is someone they 
control. Barack or Hillary? It¹s an illusion of choice, a stage-managed 
distraction from what¹s really going on. We are left with the appearance, and a 
misguided belief, that we live in a government run ³by the people and for the 
people.² In a very real sense, the Democrats and Republicans are simply various 
factions who are fighting for the right to represent the underlying 
military-industrial-financial crime syndicate that owns and operates our 
government. Those who control ³our² government want to keep their operations 
covert, beneath our conscious awareness. For if enough of us become conscious of
the evil and depravity that they are perpetrating in our name on the entire 
planet, their gig is up.


The powers that have taken over our country will do anything in their sorcerer¹s
bag of tricks to distract us and keep up the illusion that they are protecting 
us so as to maintain power. These banking and corporate pirates are willing and 
more than ready to intimidate, buy off, or destroy any and all critics.  It is 
important for us to realize the depth of evil we are dealing with here ­ they 
are willing to kill as many people as needed to accomplish their aims. It is 
shocking to realize that the very entity that is supposed to be protecting us ­ 
our government ­ is the very thing from which we need protection. It is 
shattering to realize that our leaders are genuine psychopathic criminals who 
are trying to take over our planet, impose full-spectrum dominance, enact a new 
world order and centralize power and control. Instead of this being a conspiracy
theory, the evidence is all around us, as it is everywhere we look if we have 
the eyes to see beyond the carefully crafted and disseminated spell that is 
being perpetually woven all around us.

What is happening in our world has more the ³feeling² of an invasion from a 
parallel universe than a physical coup d¹etat. This is because the intrusion is 
taking place on the plane of mind, and only secondarily on the physical plane. 
If we could stop this covert incursion into our minds it would be much easier to
mitigate the outer wars that plague our world.

These criminals clearly have way more power than we do in terms of guns, tanks, 
media and technology, but they are no match for us if we activate the inherent 
brilliance of our consciousness ­ a force with unlimited potential. Part of the 
spell they are casting is that there¹s nothing we can do, that we are powerless 
to stop them from doing whatever they want, like when Cheney mentioned it 
doesn¹t make a difference what Congress or the American people want, this 
administration is not going to be stopped from sending more troops to Iraq.

The Bush regime¹s worst nightmare is for us to wake up to how we¹ve been 
manipulated, hoodwinked and played by them like fools. The last thing they want 
is for us to access the natural intelligence inherent in being consciously 
aware, and connect with each other through the open-heart of lucidity. The 
powers-that-be¹s greatest fear is for us individually, as well as collectively, 
to connect with our intrinsic God-given power to create.

Once we clearly see what is being perpetrated in our name, we can come together 
and ³conspire to co-inspire² so as to awaken ­ and mobilize ­ our collective 
genius, which is a power greater than any weapon of mass destruction. In 
actuality, our connecting in shared lucidity is the antidote to all WMD¹s ­ it 
is what I call a WMC ­ a ³Weapon of Mass Consciousness². It is what becomes 
activated when enough of us come together and see (C ­ i.e., become conscious 
of) what is happening.

Connecting with each other is crucially important, as the more of us that 
consciously associate with each other - as if re-membering (putting our 
³members² back together to form a unified body) - the stronger the field of 
unified force that we are able to generate. Once enough of us sync up, we become
more able to collectively invoke and channel through our expanded awareness a 
power that is able to dis-arm any WMD: the power of consciousness infused with 
wisdom and compassion. Genuine compassion can be very fierce, however, as it 
both demands and empowers us to come together and say ³No² to the evil being 
done in our name. We can step out of the fear-based reality in which we appear 
to exist separately from each other in any moment and consciously connect with 
each other through the open-heart of lucidity. When we are truly serving what is
best for the whole ­ for everyone ­ a world-changing power becomes available to 

The solution to winning the war on consciousness is for us to RECOGNIZE the 
nature of the war we are in, which can only happen through the agency of our 
consciousness. Realizing that the true war we are in is an assault on our own 
minds is the expansion of consciousness which is itself simultaneously the 
solution. From a deeper, more expansive perspective, the war on consciousness is
itself the very catalyst and instrument for consciousness to awaken to itself.

It is our turn to come together so as to render powerless these sick criminals 
who have been terrorizing us. We can help each other to access our intrinsic 
heart-centered power and collectively turn the light of truth upon them so that 
they have no where to hide from their lies and corruption. For ³truth², to quote
the infamous Nazi minister of propaganda Joseph M. Goebbels, is ³the greatest 
enemy of the state.² Bush and the private interests who keep him in power and 
profit richly from his actions are absolutely terrified of one thing - the 
truth. As the late Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis said, ³Sunshine is the 
best disinfectant.² Like pouring water on the Wicked Witch of the West in ³The 
Wizard of Oz², when the true light of awareness is shed on what Bush and the 
real powers behind him are doing, their illegitimate power over us is 
dis-spelled as the illusion it always was.
