Life in Occupied Chicago

Stephen Lendman, Contributor, Activist Post
Sunday May 20, 2012

Stephen Lendman lives in Chicago and can be reached at lendmanstephen@sbcglobal.net. His new book is titled How Wall Street Fleeces America: Privatized Banking, Government Collusion and Class War

Through Monday, downtown residents live in occupied Chicago.

Secret Service agents, NORTHCOM and National Guard forces, as well as thousands of state and local police seem everywhere.

Getting around feels hazardous. Anyone may be stopped, searched,  interrogated, even arrested.

Residents were advised to hunker down and stay out of harm’s way as best as possible. For many, it’s not easy. More on a city under siege below.

NATO is the world’s first global war-making alliance. Largely a US imperial tool, it’s a killing machine. Its 28 members and dozens of partner states comprise about one-third of the world’s nations.

Article 4 of its charter calls for members to “consult together whenever, in the opinion of any of them, the territorial integrity, political independence, or security of any” is threatened.

Article 5 considers an armed attack (real or otherwise) against one or more members, an attack against all, and calls for collective self-defense.

Imperial conquests are planned. Wars are launched. Fundamental laws are violated. Nonbelligerent states are targeted. Vast destruction follows. Millions die. Human misery is incalculable. One conflict follows another in an endless cycle of worldwide collective punishment.

NATO’s a global menace, a killing machine, a weapon of mass destruction threatening humanity, an alliance for war, conquest and dominance, not peace.

Enemies don’t exist so they’re invented. Wealth and power interests alone benefit. Humanitarian intervention is code language for aggressive wars. Pretexts are contrived to wage them.

NATO plans global dominance. China’s being encircled. Encroachment approaches Russia’s borders. It’s targeted by strategic missiles for offense, not defense. At the 2010 Munich Conference, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said:

After the Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact dissolved, ‘a real opportunity emerged to make the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) a full-fledged organization providing equal security for all states of the Euro-Atlantic area.’

However, the opportunity was missed, because the choice was made in favor’ of expanding NATO eastward to Russia’s borders.

Russian President Vladimir Putin sent a message. He cancelled plans to attend the May 18 and 19 G8 summit. He won’t be with NATO states in Chicago.

Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev represents him. Both leaders are justifiably concerned.

Putin participated in the Moscow Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) summit with most former Soviet Republics.

On May 3 and 4, 50 nations attended the Moscow missile defense conference.  Representatives from NATO’s 28 states came. So did China, Japan, and South Korea.

At issue was America’s so-called missile shield. It represents major friction between Moscow and Washington. So is concern about war on Syria and Iran, as well as Obama administration officials fomenting and backing anti-government protests in Russia.

Exposed: Rahm Emanuel and the Chicago Political Syndicate

The ‘Windy City’ hasn’t really been free of corruption since the Rothschilds took control of the Chicago Board of Trade 150 yrs ago. The crooks however have more control of the media than they used to, so the vast majority of the public is unaware of the scale of criminality that goes on in Chicago. Here’s a special investigative report from Wayne Madsen of January 13, 2011:

For many years independent investigative journalist Sherman Skolnick bravely fought to expose and put an end to corruption in Chicago’s courts.  He was the founder and Chairman of Citizens Committee to Clean Up the Courts.  His reports are available on Skolnick’s Report web site.  Sherman exposed Emanuel, Clinton and the banksters. When you read Skolnick’s Reports you will also see how the banksters (Rothschilds and Rockefellers) have corrupted not only politics in Chicago, but the Executive Branch of our government as well. Those sitting in the White House have been engaged in criminal activities for many many years and have used the CIA as their own personal ‘Blackwater’.  The last President who attempted to regain government control of our currency AND clip the wings of the rogue/criminal/drug-dealing CIA was John F. Kennedy.

Sherman Skolnick wrote:

“Heaven, in its Judgment, has cursed us, the common people of America, with a traitor-infested central government, with an evil and fraudulent banking system,with a mendacious press, and with a venal and corrupt judiciary condoned by rapacious and cowardly lawyers. Thus, some say our Constitution is deservedly dead since, in our name, innocent folk on foreign shores are butchered and bombed.”


Skolnick was right about the death of our Constitution. It was put aside with the passage of the Reconstruction Act just after the Civil War. There is no way for the people of America to fix Washington, District of Criminals. The corruption is entrenched and systemic. Our best course of action at this moment in time is to try to recover our sovereign state governments, nullify or repeal the many ‘laws’ (including the Reconstruction Act and the unconstitutional 14th Amendment) that have bound us to the criminal enterprise (de facto government) known as USA INC . . . and rebuild our country from the bottom up.
