Op Ed: Who Rules Our World – ‘For God’s Sake’

by The Reverend Dr. Britt Minshall

The short answer is “us,” the U.S.A. and that is correct – BUT who rules us?

For example in President Reagan’s last year’s, we now know he was so disabled, mentally and physically, the it was really Nancy, his wife and two closely held companions, that were really in charge. Likewise, in the 1800’s the monk Rasputin was found to be the decision maker for the Czar, who was poorly matched to the job of Emperor.

We can go on and on through several Roman Emperor’s, then all the way up to Queen Victoria and Prime Minister Disraeli, the question always needs answering “Who is in charge here?” the answer will often shock you.

Throughout the past decades, being called in as a Group Dynamics Adviser to evaluate organizations, I found the person calling the shots was almost never the person designated in charge. This mysterious ruler was never listed “in charge.”  This usually “off the screen” strong man or woman was often so far out of sight the members of the organization never suspected the hidden one’s roll.

Each organization is a master Meme, but the larger the group, the greater the number of, not just stake holders, but each of them has a cadre of followers that create sub Memes in the master. For example, take the U.S. governing structure at the nucleus of our country. You have subdominant State interest, varying business interest, the power elite class, which changes periodically (currently it’s the investor class), labor interest now greatly diminished, retired persons advocates, the educators and lastly the military interests (uniformed and civilian). Each are at each other’s throats, fighting for their share of the pie. This explains today’s near civil war status dividing the nation into far right and left Memes (near 50-50), friends estranged, couples separated and one or the other resigning even from their jobs.

Where most of us make our mistake in dealing in the public domain, is we neglect to ask “what’s going on here?” and “who is in charge of this issue?” If we don’t analyses the interests creating the situation, we spend our lives in confusion, swinging at the wind.

Let’s get to where I am going. First, in seeking the power behind our throne, NEVER forget that the nation that has supplied the most militant terrorist and the only State to supply ALL the 911 actors, including Bin Laden, is NOT Iran or Iraq or the ISIS or the Sudan with whom we war – it was: SAUDI ARABIA!

Second, note the list of the seven nations on trump’s forbid list: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Yemen, Somalia and Libya.  You DO NOT see the name Egypt, the home of the Islamic Brotherhood, or most notably SAUDI ARABIA – The world’s BIGGEST terrorist power.

Third, just after 9-11 the rumor proved true: the U.S. government provided an airlift for Saudis living in the U.S. to get them back home post haste.

Fourth, SA is NOT under any condition a Democracy. Women have NO rights, dissenters are killed in a moment’s notice and thus Saudi Arabia easily qualifies for a U.S. tongue lashing and economic sanctions (you’ll never see it).  Instead we are told repeatedly: “they’re our FRIENDS!” Ironically both Iran and North Korea are closer to our definition of “friendly” but are listed as our enemies.

Add these factual gems, to SA location in the very heart of the Middle East (see map), with easy access to supply ISIS fighters to the north, terrorizing all of Syria, Turkey, Iraq and Iran who are in no way terrorist’s states and you have pinpointed the source of all the terror in the region and indeed the entire world – Saudi Arabia.

ONE LAST IMPORTANT FACT:  The partner of Saudi Arabia and its chief alley is its client state: (GUESS???) That’s correct:  the United States of America.

If you think back through Presidents Bush (both), Clinton, Obama and now Trump: You will hear NARY A WORD against Saudi Arabia, we have declared them our “perfect partner,” which means every ISIS bomb that kills hundreds has TWO signatures on it: K.S.A. and U.S.A.

One additional piece of information: Our government wants to keep all these and other lies about our role in the world a big fat secret. You will note that just this week (Sun 2/6), after thousands of “misstatements and outright lies, Don Trump set off an Atom Bomb, from his own party (America’s War Hawks), when he told Bill O’Reilly that  the United States “hands are just a bloody as Russia’s, that we are “no Saints.” INSTANTLY – every Republican from Mitch McDonald to John McCain EXPLODED against him.  Looks like the truth will make you free, free to get run out of town.

So now you know “who rules the world,” the out and out lies you are asked to believe and that you live in a “house of cards,” really Memes, just waiting to collapse. Talk about a sham – For God’s Sake!
