The State of the Union is complete control of government

"Our Congress has been hijacked by corporate America
and its enforcer, the imperial military machine."
- Gore Vidal


congressional insider trading

"Washington's a dangerous place." - Jack Abramoff

"Executives are in the business world for themselves first, and public trading of companies' stocks is mostly a thinly disguised mechanism to allow executives and directors to profit from inside knowledge and favors." - Danila Oder

"Downtowns were once collections of local businesses that lured us with claims of uniqueness: "Try our homemade pies," their signs read, or "Best jazz selection in town." Today, those signs have been replaced by familiar corporate logos that make precisely the opposite claim, promising us the same goods arranged in the same way as they are in every other place. The banks and burritos and baristas on one city block are replicated on the next — and in all the malls, in all the cities, in all the states. Americans can drive from one ocean to the other, stopping every day for the same hamburger and every evening at the same hotel. Traveling in a straight line is no longer much different than traveling in a circle." - Daniel Gilbert

The State of the Union is complete and absolute control of the federal government by interlocking corporate boards of directors of the syndicate of the soulless.

Moving regulation of corporations from government to the market immunizes corporations to the effects of citizens' participation in the political process and leaves their control to an institution where one dollar - not one person - equals one vote !

Deep Events and Changes of Party in the White House

1960 CIA secures approval for the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba, and escalates events in Laos into a crisis for which the Joint Chiefs proposed sending 60,000 troops.

These events profoundly affected John F. Kennedy's posture towards Cuba and Indochina.

1968 Henry Kissinger, while advising Lydon Johnson, gives secret information to Richard Nixon that helps Richard Nixon obstruct the peace agreement in Vietnam that is about to be negotiated at the peace talks taking place in Paris. John Mitchell claims Henry Kissinger did so for Nelson Rockefeller.

1976 CIA Director George H.W. Bush installs an outside Team B intelligence unit to enlarge drastically estimates of the Soviet threat to the United States, eventually frustrating and reversing presidential candidate Jimmy Carter's campaign pledge to cut the U.S. defense budget.

1980 Operation Eagle Claw the American attempt to free the held hostage in Iran is disrupted by CIA agents.

A CIA officer reports hearing an aide to David Rockefeller comment to William Casey, the newly installed CIA Director, about their joint success in disrupting Carter's plans to bring home the hostages.

Neil Bush told Denver reporters he had met Scott Hinckley at a surprise party at the Bush home January 23, 1981, approximately three weeks after the U.S. Department of Energy had begun what was termed a "routine audit" of the books of the Vanderbilt Energy Corp. On March 30, three representatives of the U.S. Department of Energy tell Scott Hinckley, Vanderbilt's vice president of operations, that auditors had uncovered evidence of pricing violations on crude oil sold by the company from 1977 through 1980. The auditors announce that the federal government is considering a penalty of two million dollars. Scott Hinckley reportedly requested "several hours to come up with an explanation" of the serious overcharges. The meeting ended a little more than an hour before John Hinckley Jr. shoots Ronald Reagan.

Neil Bush, son of George H.W. Bush, was scheduled to have dinner on March 31, 1981, with Scott Hinckley the brother of John Hinckley.

The family of John Hinckley was acquainted with the family of George H.W. Bush having made large contributions to George H.W. Bush's political campaign, the Houston Post reported on March 31, 1981, Tuesday, PM cycle.

The Houston Post reported in a copyright story, Scott Hinckley, brother of John W. Hinckley Jr., who allegedly shot Reagan, was to have dined tonight in Denver at the home of Neil Bush, one of the vice president's sons. Neil Bush, who lives in Denver and works for Standard Oil Co. of Indiana, had invited Scott Hinckley, vice president of his father's Denver-based firm, Vanderbilt Energy Corp. to his home for dinner.

In 1978, Neil Bush served as campaign manager for his brother, George W. Bush, the vice president's oldest son, who made an unsuccessful bid for Congress. Neil lived in Lubbock throughout much of 1978, where John Hinckley lived from 1974 through 1980.

Even the official government line admitted that the Bush and Hinckley families "maintained social ties."

The white wash investigation and trial of John Hinckley never asked any questions relating to the Bush/Hinckley family relationship.

According to press reports, at the time of the shooting John Hinckley was heavily dosing with Valium - a hypnotic benzodiazepine.

John Hinckley had stalked Senator Ted Kennedy and President Jimmy Carter. He devoured books on Sirhan Sirhan, Robert Kennedy's assassin (suspected by many conspiracy researchers to have been hypnotically programmed), and Arthur Bremer, who shot George Wallace.

Theorists ask the inevitable questions: Was Hinckley a mind-controlled assassin, a Manchurian Candidate programmed to "terminate with extreme prejudice"? They point to the CIA's longtime obsession with mind control and the fact that during the 1980 presidential primaries, Bush - the former director of Central Intelligence - enjoyed the zealous support of Agency regulars, who preferred their former boss to Reagan.

For an antisocial pariah, John Hinckley sure got around.

John Hinckley flew to Nebraska in an attempt to contact a member of the American Nazi Party.

The day after his Nazi-seeking mission, Hinckley flew to Nashville to stalk Jimmy Carter, but was arrested at the airport when authorities discovered three handguns in his suitcase. After only five hours in custody, this unstable character - who had attempted to transport weapons across state lines and into a city soon to be visited by Jimmy Carter was released.

The attempted assassination of United States President Ronald Reagan occurred on March 30, 1981, 69 days into his presidency. While leaving a speaking engagement at the Washington Hilton Hotel in Washington, D.C., President Reagan and three others were shot and wounded by John Hinckley Jr.

NBC correspondent Judy Woodruff said that at least one shot was fired from the hotel, above Reagan's limousine. She later elaborated, saying a Secret Service agent had fired that shot from the hotel overhang.

The shadow government did not care for Ronald Reagan when he first ran for president. Close associates claimed Ronald Reagan was never the same again after the assassination attempt.

George H.W. Bush controlled the "President" during most of Ronald Reagan's term in office.

Neil Bush became a director of the Silverado Banking, Savings & Loan Association in 1985 that cost the tax payers $1.6 billion three years later.

A federal judge, Judge Paul L. Friedman, granted John Hinckley, Jr. a full-time release, to begin no sooner than August 5 2016, from St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Washington, D.C., where he has been in psychiatric treatment since the shooting.

Central Intelligence Agency Timeline

Overthrowing Governments 101, CIA Coups

1941 In preparation for World War II, Franklin D. Roosevelt creates the Office of Coordinator of Information (COI). General William "Wild Bill" Donovan heads the new intelligence service.

1942 Roosevelt restructures COI into something more suitable for covert action, the Office of Strategic Services (OSS). Donovan recruits so many of the nation's rich and powerful that eventually people joke that "OSS" stands for "Oh, so social!" or "Oh, such snobs!"

1943 Donovan recruits the Catholic Church in Rome to be the center of Anglo-American spy operations in Fascist Italy. This would prove to be one of America's most enduring intelligence alliances in the Cold War.

1945 OSS is abolished - The remaining American information agencies cease covert actions and return to harmless information gathering and analysis.


operation paperclip

Operation PAPERCLIP

While other Federal agencies are hunting down Nazi war criminals for arrest, the US intelligence community is smuggling them into America, unpunished, for their use against the Soviets. The most important of these is Reinhard Gehlen, Hitler's master spy who had built up an intelligence network in the Soviet Union. With full US blessing, he creates the "Gehlen Organization," a band of refugee Nazi spies who reactivate their networks in Russia.

These include SS intelligence officers Alfred Six and Emil Augsburg (who massacred Jews in the Holocaust), Klaus Barbie (the "Butcher of Lyon"), Otto von Bolschwing (the Holocaust mastermind who worked with Eichmann) and SS Colonel Otto Skorzeny (a personal friend of Hitler's). The Gehlen Organization supplies the US with its only intelligence on the Soviet Union for the next ten years, serving as a bridge between the abolishment of the OSS and the creation of the CIA.

Much of the "intelligence" the former Nazis provide is bogus. Gehlen inflates Soviet military capabilities at a time when Russia is still rebuilding its devastated society, in order to inflate his own importance to the Americans (who might otherwise punish him).

1947 President Truman requests military aid to Greece to support right-wing forces fighting communist rebels. For the rest of the Cold War, Washington and the CIA will back notorious Greek leaders with deplorable human rights records.

Truman signs the National Security Act of 1947, creating the Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Council. The CIA is accountable to the president through the NSC - there is no democratic or congressional oversight. Its charter allows the CIA to "perform such other functions and duties as the National Security Council may from time to time direct." This opens the door to covert action and dirty tricks.

1948 Reinhard Gehlen almost convinces the Americans that war is imminent, and the West should make a preemptive strike. In the 50s he produces a fictitious "missile gap." To make matters worse, the Russians have thoroughly penetrated the Gehlen Organization with double agents, undermining the very American security that Gehlen is supposed to protect.

CIA recreates a covert action wing, innocuously called the Office of Policy Coordination, led by Wall Street lawyer Frank Wisner. According to its secret charter, its responsibilities include "propaganda, economic warfare, preventive direct action, including sabotage, antisabotage, demolition and evacuation procedures; subversion against hostile states, including assistance to underground resistance groups, and support of indigenous anti-communist elements in threatened countries of the free world."

CIA corrupts democratic elections in Italy, where Italian communists threaten to win the elections. The CIA buys votes, broadcasts propaganda, threatens and beats up opposition leaders, infiltrates and disrupts their organizations. It works - the communists are defeated.

1949 CIA creates its first major propaganda outlet, Radio Free Europe. Over the next several decades, its broadcasts are so blatantly false that for a time it is considered illegal to publish transcripts of them in the US.


operation mockingbird


late 40s Operation MOCKINGBIRD

CIA begins recruiting American news organizations and journalists to become spies and disseminators of propaganda. The effort is headed by Frank Wisner, Allen Welsh Dulles, Richard Helms and Philip Graham. Graham is publisher of The Washington Post, which becomes a major CIA player. Eventually, the CIA's media assets will include elements within ABC, NBC, CBS, Time, Newsweek, Associated Press, United Press International, Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Scripps-Howard, Copley News Service and more. By the CIA's own admission, at least 25 organizations and 400 journalists will become CIA assets.

CIA Flashback:
“We’ll Know Our Disinformation Program Is Complete
When Everything the American Public Believes Is False.”

1953

Operation MKULTRA

CIA begins experiments on mind control. LSD and other drugs are given to American subjects without their knowledge or against their will, causing several to commit suicide. Funded in part by the Rockefeller and Ford foundations, research includes propaganda, brainwashing, public relations, advertising, hypnosis, and other forms of suggestion.

Mind altering projects went under the code names of Operation Chatter, Operation Bluebird/Artichoke, Operation Mknaomi, Mkultra, and Mkdelta.

The CIA and Army spent $26,501,446 "testing" LSD, code name EA 1729, and other chemical agents. Contracts went out to forty-eight different institutions for testing. The CIA concealed their participation by contracting to various colleges, hospitals, prisons, mental hospitals, and private foundations.

"No physical examination of the subject is required prior to the administration of LSD. A physician need not be present. Physicians might be called for the hope they would make a diagnosis of mental-breakdown which would be useful in discrediting the individual who was the subject of CIA interest."

Richard Helms, CIA Director, argued that administering drugs, including poisoned LSD, to individuals who are unwitting was necessary as this is the only realistic method of understanding the capability of the intended operational use to influence human behavior as the operational targets would certainly be unwitting.

Individuals are unwittingly dosed with toxic chemicals. New York State Psychiatric Institute is granted the first known contract for research into psychochemical drugs. The purpose is to determine the psychological effect of psychological chemical agents on human subjects. These subjects were given derivatives of LSD and mescaline. Other chemicals that were tested, which could be distributed at a later date included morphine, demerol, seconal, scopolamine, ditan, atrophine, psilocybin, BZ (benzilate), glycolate, atrophine substitutes, dimethyltryptamine, chlorpromazine, LSD with Dibenzyline (blocking agents), LSM (Lysergic acid morpholide), LSD like compounds, psilocybin, and various chemical glycolate agents.

Agents are then enlisted to harass the test subjects: "Gather information on their immorality. Show them as scurrilous and depraved. Call attention to their habits and living conditions. Explore every possible embarrassment. Send in women and sex, break up marriages. Have members arrested on marijuana charges. Investigate personal conflicts or animosities between them. Send articles to the newspapers showing their depravity. Use narcotics and free sex to entrap. Use misinformation to confuse and disrupt. Get records of their bank accounts. Obtain specimens of handwriting. Provoke target groups into rivalries that may result in death."

operation ajax


Operation Ajax

CIA funds the overthrow of the democratically elected Mohammed Mossadegh in a military coup, after he threatened to nationalize British oil. The CIA replaces him with a dictator, the Shah of Iran, whose secret police, SAVAK, is as brutal as the Gestapo.

1954 CIA funds the overthrow of the democratically elected Jacob Arbenz in a military coup. Arbenz has threatened to nationalize the Rockefeller-owned United Fruit Company, in which CIA Director Allen Welsh Dulles also owns stock. Arbenz is replaced with a series of right-wing dictators whose bloodthirsty policies will kill over 100,000 Guatemalans in the next 40 years.

1954-1958 CIA officer Edward Lansdale spends four years trying to overthrow the communist government of North Vietnam, using all the usual dirty tricks. The CIA also attempts to legitimize a tyrannical puppet regime in South Vietnam, headed by Ngo Dinh Diem. These efforts fail to win the hearts and minds of the South Vietnamese because the Diem government is opposed to true democracy, land reform and poverty reduction measures. The CIA's continuing failure results in escalating American intervention, culminating in the Vietnam War.

1956 Radio Free Europe incites Hungary to revolt by broadcasting Khruschev's Secret Speech, in which he denounces Stalin. It also hints that American aid will help the Hungarians fight. This aid fails to materialize as Hungarians launch a doomed armed revolt, which only invites a major Soviet invasion. The conflict kills 7,000 Soviets and 30,000 Hungarians.

1957-1973 CIA carries out approximately one coup per year trying to nullify Laos' democratic elections. The problem is the Pathet Lao, a leftist group with enough popular support to be a member of any coalition government. In the late 50s, the CIA even creates an "Armee Clandestine" of Asian mercenaries to attack the Pathet Lao. After the CIA's army suffers numerous defeats, the U.S. starts bombing, dropping more bombs on Laos than all the U.S. bombs dropped in World War II. A quarter of all Laotians will eventually become refugees, many living in caves.

Bombing Missions Over Laos From 1965-1973


1959 Military intelligence helps "Papa Doc" Duvalier become dictator of Haiti. He creates his own private police force, the "Tonton Macoutes," who terrorize the population with machetes. They will kill over 100,000 during the Duvalier family reign. The US does not protest their dismal human rights record.

1961

Operation Mongoose

1,500 Cuban exiles invade Castro's Cuba at the Bay of Pigs but the invasion fails, due to poor planning, security and backing. The planners had imagined that the invasion will spark a popular uprising against Castro -- which never happens. (Iraq?) A promised American air strike also never occurs. Kennedy fires CIA Director Allen Welsh Dulles.

CIA assassinates Rafael Trujillo, a genocidal dictator of the Dominican Republic Washington has supported since 1930. Trujillo's business interests have grown so large (about 60 percent of the economy) that they have begun competing with American business interests.

In Ecuador the CIA-backed military forces the democratically elected President Jose Velasco to resign. Vice President Carlos Arosemana replaces him; the CIA fills the now vacant vice presidency with its own man.

CIA assassinates democratically elected Patrice Lumumba in the Congo. However, public support for Lumumba's politics runs so high that the CIA cannot clearly install his opponents in power. Four years of political turmoil follow.

Time magazine interviews a CIA officer who states a plan is in operation to polarize the communist and anti-communist factions in Laos.

1963 CIA overthrows the democratically elected Juan Bosch in a military coup. The CIA installs a repressive, right-wing junta again in the Dominican Republic.

CIA-backed military coup overthrows President Arosemana of Ecuador , whose independent (not socialist) policies have become unacceptable to Washington. A military junta assumes command, cancels the 1964 elections, and begins human rights abuses.

1964 CIA-backed military coup overthrows the democratically elected government of Joao Goulart of Brazil. The junta that replaces it will, in the next two decades, become one of the most bloodthirsty in history. General Castelo Branco will create Latin America's first death squads, or bands of secret police who hunt down "communists" for torture, interrogation and murder. Often these "communists" are no more than Branco's political opponents. Later it is revealed that the CIA trains the death squads.

1965 CIA funds the overthrow of the democratically elected Sukarno in Indonesia with a military coup. The CIA has been trying to eliminate Sukarno since 1957, using everything from attempted assassination to sexual intrigue, for nothing more than his declaring neutrality in the Cold War. His successor, General Suharto, will massacre between 500,000 to 1 million civilians accused of being "communist." The CIA supplies the names of countless suspects.

A popular rebellion breaks out in the Dominican Republic, promising to reinstall Juan Bosch as the country's elected leader. The revolution is crushed when U.S. Marines land to uphold the military regime by force. The CIA directs everything behind the scenes.

With the CIA's backing, the king removes George Papandreous as prime minister. Papandreous has failed to vigorously support U.S. interests in Greece.

In Congo (Zaire) a CIA-backed military coup installs Mobutu Sese Seko as dictator. The hated and repressive Mobutu exploits his desperately poor country for billions.

1966

The Ramparts Affair

Ramparts begins a series of unprecedented anti-CIA articles. Among their scoops: the CIA has paid the University of Michigan $25 million dollars to hire "professors" to train South Vietnamese students in covert police methods. MIT and other universities have received similar payments. Ramparts also reveals that the National Students' Association is a CIA front. Students are sometimes recruited through blackmail and bribery, including draft deferments.

1967 CIA-backed military coup overthrows the government of Greece two days before the elections. The favorite to win was George Papandreous, the liberal candidate. During the next six years, the "reign of the colonels" - backed by the CIA - will usher in the widespread use of torture and murder against political opponents. When a Greek ambassador objects to Lyndon Johnson about US plans for Cypress, Johnson tells him: "Fuck your parliament and your constitution."

Operation PHOENIX - The CIA helps South Vietnamese agents identify and then murder alleged Viet Cong leaders operating in South Vietnamese villages. According to a 1971 congressional report, this operation killed about 20,000 "Viet Cong." 1968

Operation CHAOS - The CIA has been illegally spying on American citizens since 1959, but with Operation CHAOS, Lyndon Johnson dramatically boosts the effort. CIA agents go undercover as student radicals to spy on and disrupt campus organizations protesting the Vietnam War. They are searching for Russian instigators, which they never find. CHAOS will eventually spy on 7,000 individuals and 1,000 organizations.

CIA-organized military operation captures legendary guerilla Che Guevara in Bolivia. The CIA wants to keep him alive for interrogation, but the Bolivian government executes him to prevent worldwide calls for clemency.



notorious CIA torturer Dan Mitrione


1969 CIA torturer Dan Mitrione arrives in Uruguay. Right-wing forces previously use torture only as a last resort, Mitrione convinces them to use it as a routine, widespread practice. "The precise pain, in the precise place, in the precise amount, for the desired effect," is his motto. The torture techniques he teaches to the death squads rival the Nazis'. He becomes so feared that revolutionaries kidnap and murder him a year later. Long-secret diplomatic documents reveale Richard Nixon wanted Uruguay’s government to threaten to kill leftist prisoners to try to save the life of Dan Mitrione.

1970 CIA overthrows Prince Sahounek, highly popular among Cambodians for keeping them out of the Vietnam War. He is replaced by CIA puppet Lon Nol, who immediately throws Cambodian troops into battle. This unpopular move strengthens once minor opposition parties like the Khmer Rouge, which achieves power in 1975 and massacres millions of its own people.

1971 After half a decade of CIA-inspired political turmoil, a CIA-backed military coup overthrows leftist President Juan Torres in Bolivia. In the next two years, dictator Hugo Banzer will have over 2,000 political opponents arrested without trial, then tortured, raped and executed.

"Papa Doc" Duvalier dies, leaving his 19-year old son "Baby Doc" Duvalier the dictator of Haiti. His son continues his bloody reign with full knowledge of the CIA.

1972 Case-Zablocki Act Congress passes an act requiring congressional review of executive agreements. In theory, this should make CIA operations more accountable. In fact, it is only marginally effective.

Congress votes to cut off CIA funds for its secret war in Cambodia.

A team of burglars wiretap Democratic offices at Watergate. The team members have extensive CIA histories, including James McCord, E. Howard Hunt and five of the Cuban burglars. They work for the Committee to Reelect the President (CREEP), which does dirty work like disrupting Democratic campaigns and laundering illegal campaign contributions. CREEP's activities are funded and organized by another CIA front, the Mullen Company.

1973 CIA facilitates the overthrow and assassination of Salvador Allende in Chile. Allende had nationalized American-owned firms in Chile. ITT offers the CIA $1 million for a coup. The CIA replaces Allende with General Augusto Pinochet, who will torture and murder thousands of his own countrymen in a crackdown on labor leaders and the political left.

Watergate Scandal - The CIA's main collaborating newspaper in America, Washington Post, reports Richard Nixon's crimes long before any other newspaper takes up the subject. The two reporters, Woodward and Bernstein, make almost no mention of the CIA's many fingerprints all over the scandal. It is later revealed that Woodward was a Naval intelligence briefer to the White House, and knows many important intelligence figures, including General Alexander Haig. His main source, "Deep Throat," is probably one of those.

Richard Nixon fires CIA Director Richard Helms for failing to help cover up the Watergate scandal.

1974 Operation CHAOS Pulitzer prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh publishes a reveal about the domestic surveillance and infiltration of anti-war and civil rights groups in the US.

Congress holds hearings on the illegal domestic spying efforts of James Jesus Angleton, chief of counterintelligence. His efforts included mail-opening campaigns and secret surveillance of war protesters. Angleton is fired.

Hughes Ryan Act - Congress passes an amendment requiring the president to report nonintelligence CIA operations to the relevant congressional committees in a timely fashion.

1975 CIA helps topple the democratically elected, left-leaning Australian government of Prime Minister Edward Whitlam. The CIA does this by giving an ultimatum to its Governor-General, John Kerr. Kerr, a longtime CIA collaborator, exercises his constitutional right to dissolve the Whitlam government. The Governor-General is a largely ceremonial position appointed by the Queen; the Prime Minister is democratically elected. The use of this archaic and never-used law stuns the nation.

Henry Kissinger convinces the CIA to back the brutal leader of UNITAS, Jonas Savimbi in Angola. Angola is a country of little strategic importance and not seriously threatened by communism. This polarizes Angolan politics and drives his opponents into the arms of Cuba and the Soviet Union for survival. Congress will cut off funds in 1976, but the CIA is able to run the war off the books until 1984, when funding is legalized again. This entirely pointless war kills over 300,000 Angolans.

Victor Marchetti and John Marks publish "The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence" - a whistle-blowing history of CIA crimes and abuses. Marchetti spent 14 years in the CIA, eventually becoming an executive assistant to the Deputy Director of Intelligence. Marks spent five years as an intelligence official in the State Department.

Philip Agee publishes a diary of his life inside the CIA - "Inside the Company" . Agee has worked in covert operations in Latin America during the 60s, and details the crimes in which he took part.

Public outrage compels Congress to hold hearings on CIA crimes. Senator Frank Church heads the Senate investigation ("The Church Committee"), and Representative Otis Pike heads the House investigation. (Despite a 98 percent incumbency reelection rate, both Church and Pike are defeated in the next elections.) The investigations lead to a number of reforms which prove ineffective, as the Iran/Contra scandal reveals.

Gerald Ford creates the US President's Commission on CIA Activities within the United States, 'The Rockefeller Commission', which attempts to reduce the damage done by the Church Committee. The commission's namesake, Nelson Rockefeller, is a major CIA figure. Five of the commission's eight members are also members of the Council on Foreign Relations.

1979 CIA fails to predict the fall of the Shah of Iran, a longtime CIA puppet, and the rise of Muslim fundamentalists who are furious at the CIA's backing of SAVAK, the Shah's bloodthirsty secret police. In revenge, the Muslims take 52 Americans hostage in the U.S. embassy in Tehran.

Soviets invade Afghanistan and the CIA immediately begins supplying arms to any faction willing to fight the occupying Soviets. Such indiscriminate arming means that when the Soviets leave Afghanistan, civil war will erupt. Also, fanatical Muslim extremists now possess state-of-the-art weaponry. One of these is Sheik Abdel Rahman, who will become involved in the first World Trade Center bombing in New York.

In El Salvador an idealistic group of young military officers, repulsed by the massacre of the poor, overthrows the right-wing government. However, the U.S. compels the inexperienced officers to include many of the old guard in key positions in their new government. Soon, things are back to "normal" - the military government is repressing and killing poor civilian protesters. Many of the young military and civilian reformers, finding themselves powerless, resign in disgust.

In Nicaragua Anastasios Samoza II, the CIA-backed dictator, falls. The Marxist Sandinistas take over the government and are initially popular because of their commitment to land and anti-poverty reform. Samoza had a murderous and hated personal army called the National Guard. Remnants of the Guard will become the Contras, who fight a CIA-backed guerilla war against the Sandinista government throughout the 1980s.

1980 In El Salvador Archbishop of San Salvador, Oscar Romero, pleads with Jimmy Carter "Christian to Christian" to stop aiding the military government slaughtering his people. Carter refuses. Shortly afterwards, right-wing leader Roberto D'Aubuisson has Romero shot dead while saying Mass. The country soon dissolves into civil war, with the peasants in the hills fighting against the military government. The CIA and U.S. Armed Forces supply the government with overwhelming military and intelligence superiority. CIA-trained death squads roam the countryside, committing atrocities like that of El Mazote in 1982, where they massacre between 700 and 1000 men, women and children. By 1992, some 63,000 Salvadorans will be killed.

1981 CIA begins selling arms to Iran at high prices, using the profits to arm the Contras fighting the Sandinista government in Nicaragua. Freedom Fighter's Manual disbursed to the Contras includes instruction on economic sabotage, propaganda, extortion, bribery, blackmail, interrogation, torture, murder and political assassination.

1983 CIA gives Honduran military officers the Human Resource Exploitation Training Manual which teaches how to torture people. Honduras' notorious "Battalion 316 then uses these techniques, with the CIA's full knowledge, on thousands of leftist dissidents. At least 184 are murdered.

1984 Last of a series of Boland Amendments is passed. These amendments have reduced CIA aid to the Contras; the last one cuts it off completely. However, CIA Director William Casey is already prepared to "hand off" the operation to Colonel Oliver North, who illegally continues supplying the Contras through the CIA's informal, secret, and self-financing network. This includes "humanitarian aid" donated by Adolph Coors and William Simon, and military aid funded by Iranian arms sales.

1986 Nicaragua shoots down a C-123 transport plane carrying military supplies to the Contras. The lone survivor, Eugene Hasenfus, turns out to be a CIA employee, as are the two dead pilots. The airplane belongs to Southern Air Transport, a CIA front. The incident makes a mockery of claims that the CIA is not illegally arming the Contras.

Iran/Contra scandal finally captures the media's attention. Congress holds hearings, and several key figures (like Oliver North) lie under oath to protect the intelligence community. CIA Director William Casey dies of brain cancer before Congress can question him. All reforms enacted by Congress after this scandal are purely cosmetic.

1989 US invades Panama to overthrow a dictator on the CIA payroll, General Manuel Noriega, who has been transporting drugs for them.

1990 With "Baby Doc" Duvalier deposed, leftist priest Jean-Bertrand Aristide captures 68 percent of the vote competing against 10 comparatively wealthy candidates. After eight months in power, the CIA-backed military deposes him and brutalizes the country. Thousands of Haitian refugees escape the turmoil in barely seaworthy boats. As popular opinion calls for Aristide's return, the CIA begins a disinformation campaign painting the courageous priest as mentally unstable.

1991 Saddam Hussein, a creature of the CIA , invades Kuwait. With US encouragement, Hussein invaded Iran in 1980. During this costly eight-year war, the CIA built up Hussein's forces with sophisticated arms, intelligence, training and financial backing. This cemented Hussein's power at home, allowing him to crush the many internal rebellions that erupted from time to time, sometimes with poison gas supplied by the US.

1992 In the years following the end of the Cold War, the CIA is increasingly used for economic espionage. This involves stealing the technological secrets of competing foreign companies and giving them to American ones.

1993 Chaos in Haiti grows so bad that William Jefferson Clinton has no choice but to depose the Haitian military dictator, Raoul Cedras, on threat of US invasion. The US occupiers do not arrest Haiti's military leaders for crimes against humanity, instead ensure their safety and rich retirements. Aristide is returned to power only after being forced to accept an agenda favorable to the country's ruling class.

and is presented for educational purposes only.



This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a “hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world central banking system, mass media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through mass media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
