The huge omnivorous herd consumes everywhere on our earth as much as it can grab, and tramples millions of human beings to death. That doesn't seem to matter. The 'elephant boys' don't speak about the bloody pulp underneath the feet of the big animals: instead they give'm a bath in the mainstream.

"Whether sad, angry, distressed, eager, or playful, elephants are this in a big way," - Joyce Poole, quoted in The Fate Of The Elephant.

FPF - July 7th 2006 - It is not difficult to agree with a lot of what American writers like Howard Zinn are publishing, but he too belongs to this influential group of 'critical' text producers, which is very good at describing the symptoms and hideous consequences, but concerning the origins of the disease have emasculated themselves. If deemed necessary for the global brainwash, Spielberg or some other Hollywood pimp makes a movie of the pack of lies. They spice it with some truth, and 'sell' the 'manure for the masses' via their cable TV outlets and other major propaganda media they globally own and abuse.

They write and speak very eloquently about the up to 100 kilos of manure every 'Elephant in the Room' daily is producing and the uncivilized smell of it, but dare not say much more. And none of those so called 'critical' writers/speakers ever mentions the elephant's presence in the room or calls it by name. Nor do they indicate the sometimes double nationality of the omnipotent animals and their control system; how the wolves globally are shepherding and slaughtering the sheep.

Human meat seems to be part of their 'free market'. But, 'free' for whom? And 'free' to do anything to human beings anywhere? Who profits? Concerning the herd's malignant activities, the propaganda distributors practice 'the silence of the lambs' and the misinformed sheeple suffer and die. What this group is doing globally, is a controlled demolition of humanity. - []

But the writers do not give us the reason 'why' all those people became victims.

Avoiding the real issues, and as a substitute, things like 'the lack of a good national health service', public transport problems, bad education or similar is debated. To keep the debate flowing and covering up, 'left' and 'right' was invented to keep the people divided. While the world's 6.5 billion population actually only is divided in 'givers' and 'takers'. The Elephant Group is representing the inhuman 'takers': taking what it wants. And those people that do not voluntarily surrender to the herd; do not start paying taxes to them or for free give their and their country's possessions away: those people are 'liberated' with brutal armed force or treated with US made 'democracy': they are trampled upon and many die. To ensure it's dominance, the cloak and dagger herd uses secret killers and undertakers too.

Nationally in the United States but also internationally in all countries where the elephant is in power, the writers, and other propagandists and defenders of the elephant junta's system, behave the same way concerning the inside job of 9/11: the name of the elephant again is never mentioned. To name elephant boys like WTC insurance collector Larry Silberstein is 'not done'. Scholars who have professional questions about 9/11 even get threatened. - Url.:

Get a heart attack like Enron's Kenneth Lay...

But the 'literati' on the other hand also know, that the very second they really would dare to stand up and tell the truth about the murderers, and who they are, when they would dare to give the elephant a name, then they are out, down and gone in 5 seconds flat. Like US politicians who don't cooperate with AIPAC. Other opponents get a heart attack, which seems to be very much in vogue right now. Or, when needed, even people in their own criminal circle disappear. Like Enron's biggest thief Ken Lay, who officially coming November would be convicted of fraud and conspiracy, and for hiding the financial ruin at Enron. The man who helped George Bush II into the Oval Room, and whom George Bush - ['I hardly know him'] - called 'Kenny boy'. Lay's heart attack is very well timed: before he officially is convicted. And thus - according to the law - is never convicted and not guilty. His sudden death 'saves' the stolen family fortune. The main part of the loot which is left after - among many heists - the mega robbery of Enron, including the worker's pension funds, for billions. Now he's Lay'd to rest, and is silent. Many others too: they have been 'suicided'.


However, killing by the herd's members themselves, or whatever else might be damaging to the profitability, is not discussed. That censoring silence is voluntarely for many. Imagine that for instance the group that went on this horrible killing spree in the Columbine High School had been Arabs or Negroes: we would have seen and heard it in extenso in all fairy tale forms for as long as we live. But because the perpetrators were members of a gang of jewish racists and extremists, not a sound was heard officially. And Michael Moore - no Elephant in his movie Room either - made a nice 'PNAC picture' about needed gun control. Moore never mentioned the origin of the mad violence or the racists motives of the killers that went berserk in Columbine; his agenda was advocating gun control. Easy to understand: if you take away the guns from the people in the room, the elephant runs a very small risk of being shot. - []

On the other hand, and already years ago, the 'elephant deniers' could have read an article by journalist Jim Lobe on the site of the formerly critical broadcasting corporation al Jazeera. No wonder the elephant keepers soon bought that company too, and staffed it with propagandists from the propaganda sewer BBC, whereby BBC is short for 'Broadcasting Blair's Crap'. Jim Lobe however was showing a big chunk of the elephant and its keepers. An omnipotent ideological part which always is carefully kept hidden below the PNAC's 'messmedias' veil of collaborating censorship. But, if you question it's existence, start asking about the stories the elephant boys and their masters keep repeating and want you to believe, or when you are totally fed up with the inhuman and malignant effects of those animals on nearly all human beings further wrecking the earth, and if want to say so, you are silenced in this world. One way or the other. The herd's motto is: Pay up & shut up!

So again people openly and bravely reacting against the herd's destructions, the permanent global lies and maltreatment, those people may be jailed for 'hate speech'. The elephant herd is not only hyper sensitive concerning it's own fakes and lies, but has absolutely never had any moral qualms and keeps using the powerful US war machine to kill, destroy and profit. And the elephant boys help with the Indian rope trick. The facts are not supposed to be known, and that's why the 'hate speech' clauses were made. The elephant boys know, but help to enforce it. Where ever in the world, and even on the for the main part by the herd owned Internet.


Lobe started describing the elephants, and the enormous amount of manure they are producing, by asking: "Is United States foreign policy being run by followers of an obscure German Jewish political philosopher whose views were elitist, amoral and hostile to democratic government? Suddenly, political Washington is abuzz about Leo Strauss, who arrived in the US in 1938 and taught at several major universities before his death in 1973.


But, unlike Plato, who believed that leaders had to be people with such high moral standards that they could resist the temptations of power, Strauss thought that "Those who are fit to rule are those who realize there is no morality and that there is only one natural right, the right of the superior to rule over the inferior". - Url.:

To most observers which try to stay honest and independent, who are not bribed, bought or bullied by the elephants, the case is quite clear. But apparently not to writers/reporters like Noam Chomsky, Christopher Hitchens, he from a briliiant ant-Kissinger author becomes more horrible by the day - [] - Doug Thompson, Greg Palast, Howard Zinn and many thousands of others in the elephants deadly power sphere. They write for instance very well about wars, AIDS, tsunamis or child malnutrition, but behave like elephant boys. They all know about the mortal trampling going on all the time, but prefer to ignore it. Blabbering instead about things like 'the abominable National Health Service, you know'?

They for 99% avoid to research for them sensitive items like 9/11, because they probably know the risk and do not want to be trampled to death. But at the same time, while supporting this structure of lies which supports them too, they are losing what's left of their humanity and credibility. Because an elephant, by any other name, is still an elephant, whatever they write about the effects. It is the origin of the disastrous deeds that counts. But they omit this global slaughter, they apparently do not want - or do not dare - to 'follow the blood money', nor ask openly: 'Whodunit'?

Many times those 'literati' seem to belong to this opportunistic and/or scared group which - standing in the pouring rain - keeps assuring everybody 'that it's dry and quite sunny still'. Daily giving the impression that they are standing up to their neck in the manure, but keep informing us that it doesn't smell.

Ignoring again the fact that the whole world is seeing the herd and it's genocidal trampling. The people are seeing the bloody pulp underneath the animal's huge feet, and they have drawn their own conclusions. The herd - which Seymour Hersh calls 'a cult' - has for a very long time proven to be a global plague pestering mankind, and must be stopped. By all means.

And people see those compliant 'beacons of literature' for what they are:
