From New York to Boston, They Thought They Were Free

Jorge Gato
Activist Post

‘Twas an uneasy gut feeling that bid me to leave the Land of Milk & Honey several years ago.  Something in the air didn’t smell right. The fascist frog pot has been steaming on low flame for a while now, but it is a slow simmer until you reach that exponential boiling point of no return. The recent turn of events has me somewhat startled (with fascination of course, as I shall fear no evil).

Economic indicators are dire, from the lowest recorded PC sales in history to record food stamp numbers and everything in between. The international financiers have artificially manipulated the precious metals to a level not seen in thirty years.

The Pentagon is agitating Asia in an attempt to position itself between the Russians and the Chinese, having already stationed troops at the Red Dragon’s underbelly down under. The Chinese also claim Washington is experimenting with biological warfare on the continent, while back home in the USSA anthrax floats about to the droning background news coverage of Boston’s domestic terrorism.

You see, I used to rant much about government corruption, but as I grew in my faith, I realized that it was not my primary calling and focused more on the spiritual. I figured I was somewhat in the clear, at least for a while.

You know, leave the government alone and they are supposed to leave you alone.

Ah, but this is a classic mistake, as explained by Nazi-resister and German Pastor Martin Niemöller:

First they came for the communists,

and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the socialists,

and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,

and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,

and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for the Catholics,

and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Catholic.

Then they came for me,

and there was no one left to speak for me.

Some weeks ago it was reported that US army reserves are now being taught that evangelical Christians are considered religious extremists, aka potential domestic terrorists. So much for minding my own business.

After having had fun with the TSA in earlier years by wearing my “9/11 Was an Inside Job” t-shirt to the airport (and having nearly been forced to miss my flight), I learned the cost/benefit wasn’t worth it. Later, I donned a t-shirt with a Christian message. I guess pretty soon it’ll be considered suspicious, extremist, hate speech.

The Boston Massacre

In the film Children of Men, an explosion takes place in an urban center. Later, the characters blame the government and passively explain how whenever a politician is losing their grip on power, they resort to dictatorial tactics.

Boston Marathon eyewitnesses report heavy police presence and activity prior to the bombing and the fact that the government was running a drill having to do with explosives. This has gone on long enough and those of us who have done our academic research are aware of strategies of tension (i.e. Operation Gladio) and the use of government drills as a method to execute terrorism. Drills have taken place just before nearly every recent bombing in the West.

So I send information that implicates the government to my stateside family, thinking yegads, they must realize it by now! To add to the Twilight Zone, a recent episode of the Family Guy depicted the lead character blowing up the Boston Marathon, which is now being scrubbed off the Internet and TV. I don’t know what to think of it, but wrap your mind around that one! It was just like the time the X-Files put out the 9/11 scenario six months prior to the event itself (maybe it’s that Hollywood-CIA connection?). Yet my family tells me they’ve had enough of me. Me too, I’ve had enough of trying to shake them from their “American Dream” stupor.

You can’t blame me for mercifully doing my duty.

One family member retorts that I never mention the bad things that happen in Mexico. Hmm, let me think, am I a Mexican citizen? No. Am I a U.S. citizen? Unfortunately, yes. Is the Mexican government killing its own citizens? No. Is the U.S. Government killing its own citizens? Yes. Furthermore, they have labeled my Christian identity as suspect. I hear Dietrich Bonhoeffer rattling in his grave.

Boiling Point of No Return

It’s reached that point where I absolutely no longer feel safe in the USSA. Trips back to the homeland are now few and very far between. First they came for the Muslims and the cults. Now they come for the Constitutionalists, those who seek the rule of law and good ‘ol apple pie evangelical Christians (and by Christian I am not talking about the false, delusional, right-wing, war-mongering, “I hate fags” kind).

The analysts were right; one shouldn’t wait to prepare during interesting and perilous times. I have only recently discovered that what today’s investment gurus tell us is merely ancient and forgotten wisdom. The Book of Ecclesiastes, Chapter 11 says this:

Invest your money in foreign trade, and one of these days you will make a profit. Put your investments in several places—many places even—because you never know what kind of bad luck you are going to have in this world.

There are a few things I am glad I arranged a few years ago. I obtained a second passport (now, how about a third?). I broke my fiat-Chuck E. Cheese-monopoly money hypnosis by making my first purchase of gold and silver. I diversified internationally (the paperwork to set up accounts can take a while). I stored food. I studied self-defense (Israeli Krav Maga, the best there is). I found faith. I have options. Do you?

so....you went to mexico, to feel safer. you know, we still don't have headless bodies hanging from bridges, or mutilated body parts on the streets...like they do in mexico. so, like, i'm not feelin the vibe here. what makes you feel so much safer there than here? very bad and ugly things are happening there that are not happening here in the states, so, yeah i'm not really convinced that the author doesnt have some sort of angle to pitch. what gives and why mexico? why don't you relocate to iraq or syria?
i guess i just don't see the reasoning behind such thinking. its bad enough we can't get our own house in order, we have to conquer almost every other nation thru deception, we spew our western ways on cultures that have no interest in it. when they decide not to accept our democratic ideas, because they see how bereft it is, we bomb them into submission, or pay them off.
nobody like us, sees us as a cancer upon the world....and you want to go running off to mexico to save your ass from what's coming?
well, good luck with that, and uh, if you end up in pieces on the street somewhere in mexico, courtesy of any drug cartel financed by the usa, don't say you werent warned.

Good thing there are only millions of them and good thing they aren't "religious extremists"!

Good luck with your Israeli self defense training, the chosen people need a lot of hasbara these days.

Janus Christians

"Were it not for the support offered by several tens of millions of evangelicals, militarism in this deeply and genuinely religious country becomes inconceivable." ~ Andrew Bacevich (Colonel, U.S. Army, Ret.).

This is one of the most sobering statements in Dr. Bacevich’s important book The New American Militarism: How Americans Are Seduced by War (Oxford, 2005). Whether you agree or disagree with evangelical support for militarism, the fact remains that the largest group of Americans that the government can count on to support the institution of the military, the empire of troops and bases that encircles the globe, large defense budgets, overseas military interventions, the perpetual war on terror, and now torture is evangelical Christians – and the more conservative the more bloodthirsty.

Hola Jorge, thank you for your interesting article. I'd like to know more about the fact you were going to lose your flight because of your 9/11 shirt. What were the exact reasons?

Re: Anonymous #2

I will politely comment that you sound like somebody who has not stepped foot outside of the USA. You will continue to have a difficult time understanding my perspective and my commentary on Mexico and such places. This until you actually have spent serious time living abroad, in many countries, like I have. I'm currently in Mexico, so that's why it's Mexico. In the near future, it can well be anywhere else, except for the USSA. Have you ever been to Mexico? Do you know what it's like down here? It would be wise not to speak of things you know nothing about.

When it was my turn for the body-scanners I could see the look on the TSA agent faces, they were shocked by the message on my t-shirt and I knew that they felt insulted and wanted a bit of revenge. Problem was, my flight was leaving in a few minutes and I chose to opt out. They deliberately kept me waiting for a number of minutes when they could've easily taken the time to pat me down. I told one agent my flight was leaving and he raising his voice, stated that he would keep me there as long as he wanted to. Finally, they patted me down along with an old man (I noticed older and wiser people tended to opt out) who was facing me. We both began to laugh, as we both knew what all of this was REALLY about. I then ran to my closed gate and they let me on the plane.

"It would be wise not to speak of things you know nothing about."

"they" in the poem refers to the German state of the time period.

You sound like "Jesus' little errand boy", a blackstone zionist, complete with scofield bible notes falling out of your back pocket while you proudly wave your VIP pass to the rapture.

First the militant zionists came for the muslims...
The Zionist-Nazi Collaboration

The understanding of Herzl, as well as the Zionists, about the inevitability of anti-Semitism was possibly self-fulfilling, for rather than opposing anti-Semitism in the first half of the 20th century, the Zionists found common cause with Hitler, Eichmann, and the Nazis and used anti-Semitism and Nazism as a means of achieving their end which was the establishment of a Jewish state.



Be careful in Mexico, I hear the Mossad likes to recruit Janus christians with Israeli defense training who dislike the American state. They make great patsies.

"It is between fifty and sixty years since I read it [the Apocalypse], and I then considered it merely the ravings of a maniac, no more worthy nor capable of explanation than the incoherences of our own nightly dreams." -Thomas Jefferson, letter to General Alexander Smyth, Jan. 17, 1825

"Where the preamble declares, that coercion is a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, an amendment was proposed by inserting "Jesus Christ," so that it would read "A departure from the plan of Jesus Christ, the holy author of our religion;" the insertion was rejected by the great majority, in proof that they meant to comprehend, within the mantle of its protection, the Jew and the Gentile, the Christian and Mohammedan, the Hindoo and Infidel of every denomination." -Thomas Jefferson, Autobiography, in reference to the Virginia Act for Religious Freedom
