Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

The Third World War

No, I'm not talking about World War III, I'm talking about the illegal, unconstitutional, immoral, and secretive operations carried out in our name as Americans. Most Americans have absolutely no clue what is really going on behind the scenes with our foreign policy and the flow of money through the military-industrial complex, which eats a huge share of our federal budget each year. If you even suggest of cutting any part of it, you're accused of hating the troops. Well, honeychild, the troops aren't getting that money now, and it shouldn't be a thought crime to wonder where the trillions of dollars have gone.

Here is a video that puts pictures to excepts from a John Stockwell lecture. He was one of the first of the CIA agents to come out and tell it like he saw it. He was in charge of the Angola Task Force, which is where the military/industrial complex went to directly after Vietnam. You see, they fear a break in the action. They use fear to further their own profit motives. . The underwear bomber and the scanners is a classic example. They create the problem by having an agent escort a man who has spent the requisite amount of time in an Al-Qaeda camp to establish his terrorist bona fides onto an airplane. His pants explode.  Solution: We'll scan or feel up everyone's naked bodies so that this doesn't happen again. Never mind the fact the powder wasn't dense enough to be detected, Rapiscan has to make some money for its parent company, OSI systsems, which is partially owned by George Soros, but I digress.

Throughout the last several decades, when it comes to foreign policy, it has been Dictator X is a communist. We say so. We don't want more communist countries, so we'll have to get rid of him and replace him with a democratic government. Looking back, we see that the governments overturned were not outright communists, except for maybe Cuba and it's still there. How about that? We also see that the people the US government put in as examples of democratic governments were anything but. They were often just as brutal, if not more so, than the preceding regime.

One thing I've learned from all this is that screwing America over is a nonpartisan endeavor. The agenda marches forward regardless of party. There have been very few in government who have stood up for the actual Constitution as written and intended. Wherever these braves souls have spoken up, they have been vilified and some have met with a premature demise.

Anyhow, here's a fun little video that takes excerpts from a John Stockwell lecture given in the 1980s. What he says has more meaning for us today than those attending his lecture 20 years ago.
