The CIA controls any and all politicians. The Bush crime family could get away with atrocities because Poppy Bush as CIA Director, likely JFK assassination conspirator, son of Prescott Bush who traded with Hitler, probably populated it with conservative lapdogs of his fascist oligarchy cronies that are still in power.
Even if that were not the case, the job calls for giving a license to kill to any conservative James Bond wannabe that is in fact immune from prosecution. When was the last time you heard of any CIA agent being prosecuted for a crime other than whistleblowing?
A tiny oligarchy must plan ahead to stay in power. What will the Bilderbergers come up with next? "War is the health of the nation" right? Very profitable too and keeps their depopulation plan running smoothly. Years ago they packed the courts and now we have a fascist SCOTUS. Years ago they funded state School Board candidates and now they have a Republican Congress and Donald Trump. They suppress the vote. They have a War on Drugs to keep minorities with felony convictions from voting. They own the Mainstream Media so they control public opinion. They have the money, they have the power.
All we can do is watch the thirdworldlization of our country, the destruction of our biosphere and hope for a Bernie Sanders or a revolution. Why? Because liberals and progressives don't act like cruel, deceitful, reactionary, murderous animals like conservatives and their neoliberal kin do. Besides libs don't have so much of the devil's dung as to become oligarchy shitheads.
