How many of these people protesting today about guns truly understand and care that our country was complicit in the more than 500,000 children who were starved to death in Iraq in the 1990s and that Madeleine Albright said their deaths were worth it (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0WDCYcUJ4o )?
This is a liberal nation which stands against all of our wars – and which stands against the MIC, as well –
at numbers long ago exceeding 84% and internationally the numbers are higher.
The GOP knows this and so does the Dem Party – this is simply our government ignoring the will of the people.
If you doubt this, refer to Rahm Emmanuel’s comments re liberals “who would end wars and dismantle the MIC.”
Nor do I think Americans support the Intelligence Community/NSA spying on us.
I do agree with this – and very much so –
To truly address the most critical problems facing our country today, one needs to look at where this trend toward gun violence is coming from (btw, I’m a Vietnam-era veteran). Our military, our federal government, and our MSM is to blame for much of this. Being a “warrior” is glorified. The military and the C.I.A. fund and provide equipment and consultation for many of the war movies being pumped out of our entertainment industry. The military has teamed up with the NFL and other sport venues to glorify itself. And, I would bet that if I dug into the funding of current and past popular, violent video games, I would find funding and consulting services provided by the military and intelligence agencies.
There isn’t much that the CIA isn’t into and controlling — and imo I think it is the CIA’s NRA which they used to target not only liberals in both parties, but moderates as well. BOTH were a threat to the CIA because they were the most likely to run investigations of the CIA. There hasn’t been one since the Frank Church Hearings in the 1970’s!! I’d say they’ve done rather well in getting rid of their enemies in Congress.
----- for those who may not be aware of these CIA programs …
Two years before the end of WWII, drafts were being made of these three programs –
Operation Mockingbird which took our free press
Operation Paperclip – 200,000 ex-Nazis brought into the US to found the CIA, funneled into the FBI and other government agencies, and to “hot spots” around the world.
Operation Gladio - a program to ensure that only right wing governments would rise in the nations over which the US had influence and control at the end of WWII: Japan, Germany, Italy, France. US actually
resurrected the Mafia in Italy in order to ensure the program would be carried out effectively there.
Also during that period, higher ups in Hitler’s military were visiting our Pentagon and making deals. Books such as “Rise of the Fourth Reich” by Jim Marrs, “Grey Wolf” by Simon Dunstan and “Hitler in Argentina” by Harry Cooper and research and programming such as “Hitler: Suicide or Survivor?” and “Hunting Hitler” which was a recent History Channel TV series continue the research and seem to confirm not only his survival but the continuing efforts of Hitler and those with him to ensure the Rise of the Fourth Reich.
Plans included creating atomic weapons – it was believed that at least two atomic bombs were brought out of Hitler’s Germany and that one of them may have been that used in testing here. The other perhaps the one dropped on Hiroshima.
In other words there was a deal made with the US government/Pentagon to “let Hitler go … with $$$$.”
Evidently a quite substantial amount of money.
Also, as has also long been suspected, the Vatican played an essential role in moving ex-Nazis into the US and to South America. Also in moving funding for them. Baptizing them. And securing them new passports under their new names via the Red Cross. In an effort to move refugees, the Red Cross regulations had been eased at that time.
Hitler had been recruited by Elites here and around the world and they funded him with the help of Allen Dulles and Prescott Bush who ran front companies (Holland America Line was one of them) which they did successfully until the USHR began investigating and ended up confiscating Bush’s money. Bush and Dulles, however, were able to “wrap themselves in the flag” and go on with their careers in intelligence and government.
