The Global Dominance Group: 9/11 Pre-Warnings & Election Irregularities in Context
(pdf 404kb)

"...A significant portion of the Global Dominance Group had every opportunity to know in advance that the 9/11 attacks were imminent. Many countries warned the US of imminent terrorist attacks: Afghanistan, Argentina, Britain, Cayman Islands, Egypt, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Morocco, and Russia..."

By Peter Phillips, Bridget Thornton and Celeste Vogler

The leadership class in the US is now dominated by a neo-conservative group of people with the shared goal of asserting US military power worldwide. This global dominance group, in cooperation with major military contractors, has become a powerful force in world military unilateralism and US political processes. This research study is an attempt to identify the general parameters of those who are the key actors supporting a global dominance agenda and how collectively this group has benefited from the events of September 11, 2001 and irregularities in the 2004 presidential election. This study examines how interlocking public private partnerships, including the corporate media, public relations firms, military contractors, policy elites, and government officials, jointly support a US military global domination agenda. We ask the traditional sociological questions regarding who wins, who decides, and who facilitates action inside the most powerful military-industrial complex in the world.

A long thread of sociological research documents the existence of a dominant ruling class in the United States, which sets policy and determines national political priorities. The American ruling class is complex and inter-competitive, maintaining itself through interacting families of high social standing who have similar life styles, corporate affiliations and memberships in elite social clubs and private schools.

The American ruling class has long been determined to be mostly selfperpetuating maintaining its influence through policy-making institutions such as the National Manufacturing Association, National Chamber of Commerce, Business Council, Business Roundtable, Conference Board, American Enterprise Institute, Council on Foreign Relations and other business-centered policy groups.3 These associations have long dominated policy decisions within the US government.

C. Wright Mills, in his 1956 book on the power elite, documents how World War II solidified a trinity of power in the US that comprised corporate, military and government elites in a centralized power structure motivated by class interests and working in unison through "higher circles" of contact and agreement. Mills described how the power elite were those who decide whatever is decided of major consequence.These higher circle decision-makers tended to be more concerned with nterorganizational relationships and the functioning of the economy as a whole rather than advancing their particular corporate interests respectively...

1. Very good story. Recommended reading
Especialyl the cui-bono and nepotism part and how it ties in the 2000 and 2004 Election Fraud(R)

This quote needs excerpting:

Journalist John Pilger recalled how he interviewed neo-conservative Richard Perle during the Reagan administration.

"I interviewed Perle when he was advising Reagan; and when he spoke about 'total war,' I mistakenly dismissed him as mad. He recently used the term again in describing America's 'war on terror'. 'No stages,' he said. 'This is total war.' We are fighting a variety of enemies. There are lots of them out there. All this talk about first we are going to do Afghanistan, then we will do Iraq ... this is entirely the wrong way to go about it. If we just let our vision of the world go forth, and we embrace it entirely and we don't try to piece together clever diplomacy, but just wage a total war ... our children will sing great songs about us years from now."

- John Pilger, The World Will Know The Truth, New Statesman (London) (December 16 2002).

Indeed, Perle, let's sing a song...

There once was an election, and it was really close
The only way to get it right was to hand count the votes
The jesters interjected, appointed a new chief
Now its time to do like you know who, and turn the other cheek, n say


George Bush can kiss my tush
George Bush can kiss my tush
George Bush can kiss my tush
George Bush can kiss my tush

Now he says we need to fight another bloody war
cause some dictator has oppressed some rotting dinosaurs
but its insane to throw away, our peoples blood for oil
Lets draw a line where the sun dont shine, before our pain is royal, n say

In case you somehow havent figured it out yet
I have strong feelings and personal views about this subject
but enough about me

So all you huddled masses, yearning to be heard
Get off your asses, its time to spread theword
We dont need no weapons, we got the ammunition
Just step into the voting both, assume the position, n say
