I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Halliburton, Cheney and Iraq

Although there were many motives for invading Iraq, none of which were used to justify it, it is obvious that Cheney was a driving force. We have talked about the lust for oil as a motive but little attention has been paid to the Halliburton connection.

MEJ reader Raymond A. Orr sent me an email with the chart to the left from his own site OrderFromRandomness.com. Raymond says the following;
I’m with you that a major motive in Cheney’s mind for taking the country to war in Iraq was to fix his catastrophic mistake at Halliburton. In fact, almost anyone who makes a multibillion dollar blunder at one job and then is able to make decisions that would fix the blunder at another job, would be hard pressed to sort out motives in the decision making process. For Cheney it would be especially difficult because of his narcissistic personality disorder.

While most Americans know Cheney was associated with HAL, I estimate that only 1 in 200 knows Cheney had taken the company on an imminent path to bankruptcy and the war’s privatization contracts saved Cheney from massive public humiliation. It of course had nothing to do with increasing the value of his stock options.
As you can see in the chart Halliburton began a descent towards bankruptcy shortly after Cheney became VP, largely as a result of things that happened while Cheney was CEO, and was only able to pull out of the downward spiral after the start of the invasion of Iraq. Cheney of course profited from this and yes this would be war profiteering by any definition.

  1. Lucifer told Adam and Eve that you can be like God. Mormons believe they will become Gods. Natural magic has angels in it, and Mormonism really is similar to natural magic. The angel Maroni was conjured up at occultic important times. That is the equinox. Salt Lake City ministries and Utah lighthouse both contain documentation on the magic, crystal scrying and sheep sacrifices to get the devil away from buried treasure for Joseph Smith. The baptism, anointing and sealing of Hitler is appalling. Himmler and other top Nazi murders were also baptized. Himmler was into occultism and had his own building in order to practice it.

    Millions of Americans died defeating Germany and six million Jews. I remember when Mormons believed that President Bush was a Mormon. When he did little for Katrina or Indonesia, people gloated that's a Mormon.

    I heard the topic discussed around town that only Mormons have souls and that coincides with the justified attitude of the murder of millions of Jews. I have personally heard and seen people (all Canadian and most likely Mormon) ridicule dying or dead American soldiers. Calling them dead chicken shit soldiers; ridiculing Pat Tillman at the public library and so on. They ridiculed a woman draped over a coffin, published in the Orange County Register on May 17, 2007. All of this including threatening my daughters lives started at Veterans First. Some believed they were defending John D. Lee involved in the slaughter of 120 people. Others thought that Mormons had the Marriotts in the Carlyle group. They also thought that George Bush was a Mormon and had been in the Carlyle Group.

    I can recommend the following websites. Otto Kernberg found on Wikipedia for psychiatric diagnosis manual. Kathy Krajco; what makes the malignant narcissist tick. These sites will give you a good understanding of the personality types now in possession of Orange County California.

    The sword of the spirit apologetics has pictures and explanations for the symbols on the Mormon temple such as the pentagram.

    It should be noted that virtually all police, department of Homeland Security are Canadians; most likely Mormons. If you are out of this area know that you will most likely contact a Mormon for information, if you call out here. I should state that I have personally witnessed the police use my mother, following me reading an article about a rape. The elder woman was raped, beaten and sodomized. She was saying the lords prayer and several individuals located at #50 Anaheim Blvd., gloated that's a Mormon. They had pride in the fact that the person committing the crime was a Mormon and she was saying the lords prayer.

    I have read an article, the month of may 2006, in the newspaper where Mormons "flaunt and systematically evade the laws." This is vital to understand in context of what happens here on a daily basis.

    Rickross.com, Tricia Erickson are good resources for information.

    The North American Union is now being talked about. You find can many websites on the Internet regarding the above. It would be very important for any union to read up on the NAU. California the sixth largest economy in the world has virtually been given to Canada. All the surveillance on phone calls, e-mails, "camera people" for visual surveillance are from Canada. It is used to harass people like me; I see it has discrimination based on religion and origin. It is every day and evening. There are 131,000 paroled felons and perhaps 200,000 people convicted of misdemeanors here. I do not see them harass non Canadians and Mormons. My daughters lives are threatened and they do know how many cases of brutal slayings, rapes and beatings go on here. They threaten my children anyway and hide behind a wall. Mormons have what is called blood atonement, talked about by Brigham Young. William Heber Le Baron used blood atonement to kill people. Warren Jeff's said it is not blood thirst to kill, if it Gods will, then more or less you have to humble yourself to the task. The exact wording comes from Montel Williams Show. It was a recorded message from Warren Jeff's. Yesterday September 3, at about 3:30 P.M. I witnessed a Santa Ana Policemen telepathic (in a sick mocking sort of way) I am raping Lindsi(My youngest daughters name).
    That day in the Orange County Register was a story of an eleven year old girl raped.

    I have read of murders, homicides and rapes in the Immediate Orange County area. Once again the malignant narcissist comes to mind. There grandiose cruelty and lying behavior is very present here. I do not believe these people can properly measure the world around them through there grandiose persona. They do not have the same reference to the real world. They do not seem to be able to separate out and see people for what they are. That is they need a supply for their self conceived fake self. These individuals have a trait of believing that they are above the law! They have what I call stereo typical intelligence, much of what they believe about Americans is stereo typical. That all politicians are crooked and can be bought. All politicians can not be bought; although Mormons have substantial political clout. They do not prioritize or measure objective reality the same. (women are not even chattel) They have this weird disdain for woman and I have witnessed others that particularly single out young girls or young women. Women have to vote the way a man tells them too. Some may have what you call paranoid features of intimacy. Women are the devil or worse. How bad can women be? They might just keep you out of heaven. Any man going through divorce might think something like that about his ex. Being exalted with a God like persona, one, from that viewpoint could make an archetype evil woman.

    The child protection project is a good website to look into the world of abuse as part of polygamy.

    I believe that we need an independent counsel, such as the Judiciary Committee of the Senate, to look into the situation here in California. It will not be easy bypassing what is in place here. I would pretty much believe that some political muscle could be used to "cover" for the Mormons. You can not believe these people! I have seen so much staging to get people to perceive you a certain way and then to act a witness. Sometimes it is called hollow decking like the star trek series. None of this is normal social evolution. It it is like an insane asylum out here. I said years ago that these people were psychosis inducing people meaning that will make you crazy being around them. I have never witnessed anything like it.
