But Rep. Dick Armey (R., Tex.) Threatens "Real World Consequences"

(PLUS, Other News: Hillary Almost Killed, Howard Hughes, etc.)

Mark well, these "hard times" occur when the money possessors want some special condition or special law to get some special privilege in trade or commerce, or to scare the masses of people, their legislators, or government into giving them what they want, or to "discipline" or get revenge upon the masses or the government for "acts" or "laws" passed or established, limiting, curbing, or taking away some special privilege or concession.

-- Lincoln: Money Martyred by Dr. R.E. Search

Last week we were told that the very prestige of Bill Clinton's presidency was riding on whether the "Fast Track" legislation would be passed by Congress. But this week, we are not hearing, "Well, that's it. A crushing defeat for Bill Clinton. There goes his prestige, right down the toilet." Instead, =as= =if= =last= =week's= =dire= ="prestige"= =warning= =never= =happened=, Bill Clinton is right back out there, this time stirring up divisiveness and mistrust between the common people by greatly magnifying sporadic "hate crimes," making them seem immense, and thereby seeking to disunite the American people.

But it's been a "bad hair day" for sweet darling "Cuddles Clinton" of Arkansas. He lost. We (the working people) won. Take a moment to savor our victory. But know that the Invisible Enforcers are even now cooking up a repressive counter-attack. Warns (threatens) Rep. Dick Armey, part of "Democrat" Clinton's Republican cohort, "After a real world of real world consequences, we will probably pass Fast Track legislation."

(Mark well, these "hard times" occur when the wealthy elites want some special condition or special law.)

The docile lambkin press did not ask Mr. Armey, "=What= 'consequences?'" They just sat there. But Dick Armey had just made a =prediction=: There are going to be "CONSEQUENCES." No one bothered to ask, "What do you mean -- 'consequences?'"


"What's with all these crashes of Air Force aircraft?" asked a reader of Conspiracy Nation. At the time, I told him that my guess was it was all a prelude to the crash of the #1 Air Force aircraft, Air Force One, on which fly Bill and Hillary Clinton. Then the "spin" would be: "Ah yes. All these Air Force crashes; and now, the final tragedy, the crash of Air Force One. Of course, 'obviously,' it was not an assassination, but poor maintenance. We must pass 'The Bill Clinton Memorial Law,' improving maintenance of Air Force jets, planes, and helicopters."

Today (11/10/97), Associated Press reports that Air Force One "developed engine problems 10 minutes into Hillary Rodham Clinton's Central Asia trip and returned home after dumping its fuel." A close call for Hillary, but was it just a "coincidence?" Does it have anything to do with documents "fortuitously" discovered in an abandoned auto and now in the hands of Kenneth Starr?

The "anonymous author" now specifically states that "88" ("HH") is indeed Howard Hughes. I had mistakenly got the idea he'd somewhere stated that "88" was not Howard Hughes. I regret the error.

A good book uncovering the hidden side of Howard Hughes is Project Seek by Gerald A. Carroll. (ISBN: 0-9640104-0-2; phone 1-800-729-4131 for further info.) Also giving inside info on Hughes is Age of Secrets by Gerald Bellett. (ISBN: 0-921842-42-2; phone 1-800-268-2946 for further info.)

According to Age of Secrets: Cay Sal is one of the cays and islands stretching out from the southern tip of Florida. In 1976, John H. Meier, a former associate of Howard Hughes, landed there under cover of darkness. Guided by "Chuck," Meier snuck past armed patrols. They both reached a shed. "Chuck" picked the lock and they entered. Inside was a case measuring about 7 feet long by 3 feet high. On closer inspection, the "case" was found to be a cryonics chamber containing the corpse of Howard Hughes.

In a past issue of Conspiracy Nation (CN 11.34), I had outlined claims by Dr. R.E. Search in Lincoln: Money Martyred, in which Search had claimed that Lincoln's "greenbacks" had stayed "at par" during the Civil War. Search does say that, but later qualifies the "at par" claim with info on an "exception clause" and how that undermined the "greenbacks":

February 25, 1862: "Exception Clause" Act passed, making the next issue of greenbacks read: Good for all debts both public and private except duty on imports and interest on Government debts.

As the reader will readily see, this clause put the government in the light of refusing its own money for duty on imports, and gave the bankers an excuse to refuse or discount that issue, which they promptly did, 30 percent, claiming that their clients would not take them...

An alert reader of Conspiracy Nation questioned (quite rightly) the claim that the "greenbacks" had traded "at par" throughout the Civil War. I regret the confusion caused by my inadequate outlining of Search's material on "greenbacks." A more accurate assessment is that Lincoln's "greenbacks" did trade "at par" until sabotaged by the "exception clause," steamrolled into law via pressure from rival interests.
