Ron Paul Weighs in on Trump Presidency — Beware of the ‘Shadow Government’

Posted in Alternative Media, Deep State, News, Shadow Government with tags , , , on November 20, 2016 by realizethelies

Former Texas Representative Ron Paul has issued a warning, on the heels of president elect Donald Trump’s successful bid for the White House, to beware of the shadow government pulling political strings behind closed doors.

Paul made his remarks in an interview with Peter Lavelle, when asked what foremost issues should be on the mind of Donald Trump right now. Paul answered, “who he appoints to the cabinet,” should be one of the first things the billionaire turned politician must address.

“Quite frankly, there’s an outside source which we refer to as the Deep State or a Shadow Government. There’s a lot of influence by people that are actually more powerful than our government itself,” he said referring to U.S. meddling with international elections around the world.
“If the government’s not acting right, it’s the secret government, it’s the shadow government, it’s the CIA and the false flags and the accidents that happen and then the people get angry, because if you don’t get angry at your enemies, then you’re unpatriotic.

Paul says he’s optimistic because the media and the government have been exposed. “Don’t believe the government,” Paul implored. He said he wants government to “be very very small” and said if we did we would have a “more peaceful world.”

Deep State: America’s Shadow Government and Its Silent Coup

By John W. Whitehead

“Today the path to total dictatorship in the U.S. can be laid by strictly legal means, unseen and unheard by Congress, the President, or the people. Outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating within our government and political system … a well-organized political-action group in this country, determined to destroy our Constitution and establish a one-party state
The important point to remember about this group is not its ideology but its organization… It operates secretly, silently, continuously to transform our Government…. This group … is answerable neither to the President, the Congress, nor the courts. It is practically irremovable.”

— Senator William Jenner, 1954 speech

Unaffected by elections. Unaltered by populist movements. Beyond the reach of the law. Say hello to America’s shadow government.

A corporatized, militarized, entrenched bureaucracy that is fully operational and staffed by unelected officials who are, in essence, running the country, this shadow government represents the hidden face of a government that has no respect for the freedom of its citizenry. No matter which candidate wins the presidential election, this shadow government is here to stay. Indeed, as recent documents by the FBI reveal, this shadow government—also referred to as “The 7th Floor Group”—may well have played a part in who will win the White House this year.

To be precise, however, the future president will actually inherit not one but two shadow governments.

The first shadow government, referred to as COG or Continuity of Government, is made up of unelected individuals who have been appointed to run the government in the event of a “catastrophe.” COG is a phantom menace waiting for the right circumstances—a terrorist attack, a natural disaster, an economic meltdown—to bring it out of the shadows, where it operates even now. When and if COG takes over, the police state will transition to martial law.

Yet it is the second shadow government—also referred to as the Deep State—that poses the greater threat to freedom right now. Comprised of unelected government bureaucrats, corporations, contractors, paper-pushers, and button-pushers who are actually calling the shots behind the scenes, this government within a government is the real reason “we the people” have no real control over our government.

So who or what is the Deep State?

It’s the militarized police, which have joined forces with state and federal law enforcement agencies in order to establish themselves as a standing army. It’s the fusion centers and spy agencies that have created a surveillance state and turned all of us into suspects. It’s the courthouses and prisons that have allowed corporate profits to take precedence over due process and justice. It’s the military empire with its private contractors and defense industry that is bankrupting the nation.

It’s what former congressional staffer Mike Lofgren refers to as “a hybrid of national security and law enforcement agencies”: the Department of Defense, the State Department, Homeland Security, the CIA, the Justice Department, the Treasury, the Executive Office of the President via the National Security Council, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, a handful of vital federal trial courts, and members of the defense and intelligence committees.

These are the key Elements that drive the shadow government.This is the hidden face of the American police state that will continue long past Election Day:

USA Patriot Act, NDAA.
America’s so-called war on terror, which it has relentlessly pursued since 9/11, will continue to chip away at our freedoms, unravel our Constitution and transform our nation into a battlefield, thanks in large part to such subversive legislation as the USA Patriot Act and National Defense Authorization Act. These laws completely circumvent the rule of law and the rights of American citizens. In so doing, they re-orient our legal landscape in such a way as to ensure that martial law, rather than the U.S. Constitution, is the map by which we navigate life in the United States. These laws will continue to be enforced no matter who gets elected.

Domestic surveillance.
No matter who wins the presidential popularity contest, the National Security Agency (NSA), with its $10.8 billion black ops annual budget, will continue to spy on every person in the United States who uses a computer or phone. Thus, on any given day, whether you’re walking through a store, driving your car, checking email, or talking to friends and family on the phone, you can be sure that some government agency, whether the NSA or some other entity, is listening in and tracking your behavior.
Full-body scanners at airports which perform virtual strip-searches of Americans traveling by plane, have gone mobile, with roving police vans that peer into vehicles and buildings alike—including homes. Coupled with the nation’s growing network of real-time surveillance cameras and facial recognition software, soon there really will be nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.

Global spying:
The NSA’s massive surveillance network, what the Washington Post refers to as a $500 billion “espionage empire,” will continue to span the globe and target every single person on the planet who uses a phone or a computer. The NSA’s Echelon program intercepts and analyzes virtually every phone call, fax and email message sent anywhere in the world. Echelon has also been a keystone in the government’s attempts at political and corporate espionage.

A Militarized police state.
Thanks to federal grant programs allowing the Pentagon to transfer surplus military supplies and weapons to local law enforcement agencies without charge, police forces will continue to be transformed from peace officers into heavily armed extensions of the military, complete with jackboots, helmets, shields, batons, pepper-spray, stun guns, assault rifles, body armor, miniature tanks and weaponized drones.
America’s law enforcement officials, no longer mere servants of the people entrusted with keeping the peace, will continue to keep the masses corralled, controlled, and treated like suspects and enemies rather than citizens.

Endless Wars

America’s expanding military empire will continue to bleed the country dry at a rate of more than $15 billion a month (or $20 million an hour). The Pentagon spends more on war than all 50 states combined spend on health, education, welfare, and safety. Yet what most Americans fail to recognize is that these ongoing wars have little to do with keeping the country safe and everything to do with enriching the military industrial complex at taxpayer expense.

The next president, much like the current president and his predecessors, will be little more than a figurehead, a puppet to entertain and distract the populace from what’s really going on. The Deep State not only holds the nation’s capital in thrall, but it also controls Wall Street (“which supplies the cash that keeps the political machine quiescent and operating as a diversionary marionette theater”) and Silicon Valley.

This is fascism in its most covert form, hiding behind public agencies and private companies to carry out its dirty deeds.It is a marriage between government bureaucrats and corporate fat cats.

So the next time you find yourselves despondent over the 2016 presidential candidates, remember that it’s just a puppet show intended to distract you from the silent coup being carried out by America’s shadow government.

9/11’s “Known Knowns”

Posted in 9-11, Alternative Media, Conspiracy, News, Shadow Government with tags , , , on September 25, 2016 by realizethelies

known911

Years of willful deception, the sands of time, and simple neglect all tend to cloud our perception of the reality of history. This is especially true for politically radioactive topics like 9/11. With the debate over 9/11 heating up at the 15th anniversary of that fateful day, it’s a good time to get back up to speed.

There are essential pillars of the 9/11 debate that must be acknowledged by all parties before any healthy discussion of that paradigm-changing topic can take place.
What follows is a refresher list of “known knowns” — select, broad aspects of 9/11 that are at present beyond reasonable doubt:

. The money (financial funding and Fraud) trail was never followed to its logical conclusion. The 9/11 Commission concluded the question of who funded the attacks “was of little practical significance.”

. The Bush Administration pushed back against any independent investigation into 9/11.Once the White House agreed to an investigation, it provided a budget of $3 million, or 27% of the amount requested by 9/11 Commission co-chairs, Thomas Keane and Lee Hamilton.

. The Bush White House’s first choice to lead the 9/11 Commission was the highly controversial Henry Kissinger. Under intense pressure due to conflicts of interest, he resigned a month later. The 9/11 Commission was compromised by having White House policy advisor Philip Zelikow as its executive director. He was alleged to have been in close contact with controversial White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove throughout the investigation.

. Saudi agents — some with ties to the White House — sent financial and logistical support to men who then provided that support to the hijackers. That’s according to the Congressional 2002 Joint Inquiry report, multiple media accounts and at least one FBI agent who worked on 9/11 cases. Efforts to further investigate Saudi nationals were resisted by the White House and CIA over and over again.

. Indian intelligence, corroborated by the FBI, showed a wire transfer of $100,000 from the phone of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Mahmud Ahmad to 9/11 lead hijacker Mohammed Atta in 2000. Ahmad was in Washington D.C. on the morning of the attacks, meeting with US lawmakers.(including a Future Director of the C.I.A.)

. The $100,000 transaction was never mentioned in the 9/11 Commission report — and Ahmad was never detained for questioning.

. Multiple, overlapping war game drills created some level of confusion at the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and the Northeast Air Defense Sector (NEADS) on the morning of the attacks.

. Around noon on 9/11, air traffic controllers who handled some of the hijacked flights made a recording recalling their experiences of the events from a few hours earlier. The tape was later destroyed by an unidentified FAA supervisor without any transcripts taken.(destruction of evidence in a criminal investigation)

. Blaming Iraq was the talking point advanced by the Bush administration within days of the attacks. Later, multiple reports surfaced alleging that the neoconservatives who made up the hawkish Project for a New American Century think tank and the Bush Administration had been planning for and discussing the need to publicly justify an invasion of Iraq (and Afghanistan) long before 9/11.

This is by no means a full list of inadequately-investigated facts surrounding 9/11.
People loyal to the official narrative at first denied the veracity of many of these facts. Later, when the corroborations and confirmations became overwhelming, they shifted gears, insisting these “knowns” didn’t matter.

More Saudi Involved 9/11 Leaks, 28 Classified Pages, Possible C.I.A. Involvement and U.S. Govt Coverup

Posted in 9-11, Alternative Media, C.I.A., Conspiracy, Deep State, F.B.I., News, Shadow Government on April 19, 2016 by realizethelies

911_commission_lies

It seems as thought the Mainstream media is finally coming around to the facts that 9/11 truther’s have been researching and presenting for the last 15 years. The fact’s the Bush administration sanctioned 9/11 report was basically a cover up and not in the interest of actually revealing the key players and real events of the 9/11 Terror attacks.

The New York post released a story relating to the congressional report of the classified “28 pages”, Alleging that the Cover up goes far beyond the classified documents into direct tampering with investigations and Sheilding individuals that were involved.

Free Though Project

On Sunday, in an extremely damning indictment, the New York Post exposed the extreme corruption and cover up the U.S. government engaged in after the attacks of 9/11 — as it took a look at what has become known as the “28 pages” – a classified section of the 9/11 files regarding possible states sponsorship of the attacks, which was intentionally buried by the U.S. government.
What has come to light is nothing less than a political bombshell, as the information allegedly highlights undeniable connections between senior Saudi officials and the men who flew the planes into the World Trade Center and Pentagon.
The NY Post uncovered numerous claims of “diplomatic immunity,” which shut down investigations into the 9/11 attacks – with U.S. government officials happy to overlook allied co-conspirators in the name of preserving the Petrodollar alliance.
The Post spoke with a source on record who detailed the Saudi ambassadors funding of the 9/11 hijackers, as well as alleging that they “are currently funding global jihad.”

Several Former F.B.I. sources have come forward with information that the Bush administration had tampered with investigations of individuals related to the 9/11 attacks, and had even gone as far enough to protect them with diplomatic immunity.

“The FBI was thwarted from interviewing the Saudis we wanted to interview by the White House,” said former FBI agent Mark Rossini, who was involved in the investigation of al Qaeda and the hijackers. The White House “let them off the hook.”

NewsWeek: FBI AGENT: THE CIA COULD HAVE STOPPED 9/11

Mark Rossini, a former FBI special agent says he is “appalled” by the newly declassified statements by former CIA Director George Tenet defending the spy agency’s efforts to detect and stop the plot.
Rossini, who was assigned to the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center (CTC) at the time of the attacks, has long maintained that the U.S. government has covered up secret relations between the spy agency and Saudi individuals who may have abetted the plot. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers who flew commercial airliners into the World Trade Center towers, the Pentagon, and a failed effort to crash into the U.S. Capitol, were Saudis.

Rossini and another FBI agent assigned to the CTC, Doug Miller, say they learned in January 2000 that one of the future hijackers, an Al-Qaeda operative by the name of Khalid al-Mihdhar, had a multi-entry visa to enter the U.S. By mid-summer of 2001, the CIA was repeatedly warning President George W. Bush and other White House officials that an Al-Qaeda attack was imminent. But Miller and Rossini say when they attempted to warn FBI headquarters that al-Mihdhar could be loose in the U.S., a CIA supervisor ordered them to remain silent.

9/11 researcher and Author Kevin Barret has alleged that the 15 Saudi nationals involved with the attacks were working directly for the C.I.A. and were subsequently set up as patsies. According to Barret and his sources the hijackers” were covertly working with rogue factions of the U.S. Military Industrial Complex,and Israeli Mossad.

Press TV

So these 15 Saudi patsies, who were set up to take the blame for 9/11, were in fact CIA agents. We know this – I had this confirmed directly by a CIA source that these 15 Saudis entered, and repeatedly reentered on these supposedly – they call them employment visas, but there’s a special number for employment visas that are only given to CIA assets as a reward for their service to the Central Intelligence Agency, and this visa allows them to come to the US. Typically they’re paid for their work for the CIA in Saudi Arabia, and then they are given this special kind of visa which is disguised as an employment visa but it’s of particular type,”
“And all 15 of these guys had that visa. That shows that they were in fact Central Intelligence Agency agents. Some of them were living with FBI people in California. So these 15 Saudis were not working against the United States government, they were working for the United States government, and they were set up so that Saudi Arabia could be potentially blamed for the September 11 attacks, which were actually perpetrated by Israel and its American assets,”

While that may seem like a stretch of the imagination it has been documented that some of 9/11 terrorists were flight trained at american Military facilities and were being watched by undercover F.B.I. sources And yet all the while these “terrorists” were always one step ahead of being caught,months prior to 9/11. There are massive amounts of information that were not included in the official 9/11 report narrative. When viewed seperatley and randomly it would seem to not add up, but when viewed in the light of U.S. Government complicity and cover-up of the events begins to truly make sense.

The 15 Most Powerful Members Of ‘Skull And Bones’

Posted in C.I.A., Conspiracy, Deep State, Secret Societies, Shadow Government with tags , , on March 27, 2016 by realizethelies

The most famous secret society in America, Skull and Bones was co-founded at Yale in 1832 by the father of a future president and has come to signify everything that attracts and repulses the public about “The Elite.”

Rumor has it that Yale junior class members are tapped for membership each fall by some measure of leadership, influence and breeding.Among the business titans, poets, politicians and three US Presidents that are rumored to be members, we’ve picked out the honor roll.

William Howard Taft – Class of 1878

william-howard-taft

Our 27th, and fattest (fun fact), President was known to his college buddies as “Big Lub,” and was the first “Bonesman” ever to reach The Oval Office.Frankly, young Mr. Taft would probably had a rather easy time getting into the club…His father, and one-time Attorney General, Alphonso Taft, co-founded Skull and Bones as a Yale student in 1832.

William Averill Harriman – Class of 1913

William_Averell_Harriman

The future Governor of New York and Presidential candidate was clearly a man who liked his time at Yale…
Immediately after inheriting the largest fortune in The United States from his railroad baron father upon his graduation, Harriman took a job as Yale’s crew coach and stuck around New Haven.
Harriman would go on to become a major player in international politics, Providing diplomatic and financial support to the Bolshevik revolution of 1917. in 1931 he would Become a founding Member of Brown Brother’s Harriman. The investment firm that would provide financial support to Hitler and the Nazi’s.

Prescott Bush – Class of 1916

Prescott-Bush-1

If you thought “Dubya” was a wild man in his college years, you should have met his grand-daddy.
Prescott, the future Senator from Connecticut, was apparently a real “cut-up” who, along with some other Bonesmen, is believed to have dug up and absconded with the skull of the legendary Native American warrior Geronimo during World War I.Legend has it that Geronimo’s head is still inside Skull and Bones HQ, known as “The Tomb,” at 64 High Street in New Haven. Prescott would go on to become involved with Brown Brothers- Harriman The wall street investment firm that would go on to fund Hitler and the Nazi’s and to plot a business coup to overthrow president Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1934.

Henry Luce – Class of 1920

henry-luce-class-of-1920

The man who went on to found and publish Time Magazine was first an editor of The Yale Daily News.He was also a man that fellow Bonesmen referred to as “Baal,” an apparent reference to a mythological, ancient, Aramaic demon.We have no idea why, but the mind boggles at the implications.However it can’t be verified whether or not luce was personally involved with editing or selecting Mass Murderer’s Adolf Hitler,and Josef Stalin as time’s Man of the year.

George Herbert Walker Bush – Class of 1948

george-herbert-walker-bush-class-of-1948

The second ever Bonesman to be elected President, “41” was also a fighter pilot in WWII, Ambassador to “Red China” and Director of the CIA.His training at Skull and Bones must have been invaluable in the career he made out of keeping safe the secrets of state. Bush spent more than 40 years as a behind the scene’s player of the establishment Elite,with implications of his being involved in the J.F.K. assassination and the Iran-Contra Scandal.

John F. Kerry – Class of 1966

john-f-kerry-class-of-1966

The now senior Senator from Massachusetts was only a college Junior when he was “Tapped” as a Bonesman after a childhood spent abroad with his diplomat father.Kerry’s period of membership as an on-campus Bonesman just missed intersecting with a man he would come to challenge for the presidency in 2004..

George W. Bush – Class of 1968

george-w-bush-class-of-1968

W” was a man who’s family was synonymous with Skull and Bones by the time he arrived on Yale’s campus as a Freshman, but it has been whispered that many thought his family would agree to his not being “Tapped” as George was a rather… “distractable” young man.But after joining up with the family club, joining the cheerleading team and generally raising hell, “W” ended up as the third Bonesman to occupy the office of the President. With 9/11 becoming the defining moment of Bush’s Presidency and the gateway to our current police state. It cant help but to be pointed out Bush’s insider business dealings with the Saudi Royal Family and Osama bin laden himslef, Bush’s so called “sworn enemy”.

The Matrix of Technocracy: The Roots of the Conspiracy

Posted in Commentary, Conspiracy, Mind Control, Shadow Government, Social Engineering on March 20, 2016 by realizethelies

technocracy1

Jon Rappoport

Many independent researchers, writers, and broadcasters have exposed the operation called technocracy. Consider the term “scientific humanism.” The Oxford Dictionary offers this definition: “A form of humanist theory and practice that is based on the principles and methods of science; specifically the doctrine that human beings should employ scientific methods in studying human life and behaviour, in order to direct the welfare and future of mankind in a rational and beneficial manner…Origin mid-19th century.

Two items jump out from the page: “…in order to direct the welfare and future of mankind,” and “Origin mid-19th century.” The first phrase obviously refers to a plan. And the plan emerges from being able to study, at a great height, populations and nations—in order to direct their behavior, in order to place them and move them on a chessboard. “Scientifically.”
Free will? Not important. Free exchange of goods and services? Not important. The unique vision and desire of the individual? Not important. Only science is important—whatever that means.Science/rule by technology/technocracy becomes the justification for control.

As the Oxford Dictionary mentions, this kind of program had its roots in the mid-19th century. Let’s now try to summarize thousands of pages of scholarship in a few paragraphs.
Darwin published his hypothesis about evolution in 1859. Marx and Engels published The Communist Manifesto in 1848. Prior to Marx, Engels, and Darwin, the word “humanism” referred to a tradition of philosophy, knowledge, culture, education, and art birthed by the ancient Greeks—coming forward through Rome to the European Renaissance. It elevated human beings. It tended toward greater freedom, less Church repression. But then, in the mid-19th century, humanism took a sharp turn. It became identified with “the march of science,” the triumph of philosophic materialism (Darwin), and the complete restructuring of nations and societies according to a social, economic, and political plan that would “benefit all” (Marx, Engels). Humanism was stripped down to “scientific humanism.”

In succeeding generations, all the way up to today, intellectuals and scientists and technologists have adopted the viewpoint that, since they can see the whole of society from above, and since they can understand its workings in clearer and evermore specific terms, and since they understand the vast field of natural resources, they can and should, quite naturally, and as a matter of course, plan and plot the future of humanity. Their impulse was, behind the scenes, aided and abetted by a quite different cast of characters, who wanted a new world order, a political and economic management system for the entire planet (now known as Globalism).

This is, in effect, a two-tier operation. At the top are the Rockefeller Globalists; and under them, millions of useful high-IQ idiots who love to play chess with the world population.The propaganda wing of this operation insists, at every turn: the only “solution” for planet Earth is the group solution. The group, the mass, the collective.It is unthinkable that The Individual would have anything to contribute. The staging of civilization’s ebbs and flows, victories and defeats, always has the aim of discounting and reducing the role of the individual. Whatever else is intended, that is intended.

Mind control tries to make individuals think of themselves as helpless pieces on the chessboard. Mind control tries to make individuals surrender their free will. Mind control tries to make individuals believe they have no place in the modern world. Rather, they must be part of a group; otherwise, they’re invisible. What I call the Reality Manufacturing Company wants everyone to have the same inner configuration.That is the basis of collectivism at the deepest level.

At the outbreak of World War 2, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) began making plans for the post-war world.The question it posed was this: could America exist as a self-sufficient nation, or would it have to go outside its borders for vital resources?Predictably, the answer was: imperial empire.The US would not only need to obtain natural resources abroad, it would have to embark on endless conquest to assure continued access.
The CFR, of course, wasn’t just some think tank. It was connected to the highest levels of US government, through the State Department. A front for Rockefeller interests, it actually stood above the government.

Through wars, clandestine operations, legislation, treaties, manipulation of nations’ debt, control of banks and money supplies, countries could be turned into “managed units.”Increasingly, the populations of countries would be regulated and directed and held in thrall to the State.And the individual? He would go the way of other extinct species. As the years and decades passed, this notion of the collective and its requirements, in a “humane civilization,” expanded.On every level of society, people were urged to think of themselves as part of a greater group. The individual and his hopes, his unique dreams, his desires and energies, his determination and will power…all these were portrayed as relics of an unworkable and deluded past.

In the planned society, no one rises above the mass, except those men who run and operate and propagandize the mass. The Plan is all that is important. The plan involves universal surveillance, in order to map the lives of billions of people, move by move, in order to design systems of control within which those billions live, day to day.

10 Times the CIA Used Secret Armies to Overthrow Foreign Governments

Posted in C.I.A., Conspiracy, News, Shadow Government on February 19, 2016 by realizethelies

cia34_01

As more and more evidence mounts that the US government was secretly assisting the Islamic State, it might be time to point out a few instances when the Central Intelligence Agency created secret armies. The current theory suggests the US secretly supported the Islamic State so the Islamists would destabilize the government of Syrian President Assad. If that seems out of the question, remember the CIA once started a war over bananas.

1952 Ukraine– During the second World War, the Nazis set up a partisan group in Ukraine to harass and slow the advancing Soviet forces. At the end of World War II, US intelligence began funding and assisting the partisan group. The Soviets wiped the partisans out in 1952.

1954 Guatemala– This little CIA caper is the origin of the term “Banana Republic.” The democratically elected President of Guatemala,Jacobo Árbenz decided to punish the United Fruit Company for decades of consorting with the country’s dictators. He began to propose legislation to end the US multinational’s monopoly on almost everything in the country. So what else could the CIA do? The agency overthrew the legal government and triggered a war… over bananas.

1960 Congo: In the 1960s, Belgium was ending its colonial rule over Congo. Rather than allow self-determination, the CIA staged assassinations, armed rebel forces, brought in European mercenaries, and even backed them up with a secret air force.

1961 Cuba Probably the best known secret army. Castro nationalized the assets of western companies after his government took power, so the US decided to overthrow the government of Cuba and install a puppet regime. As with most of the armies backed by the US intelligence establishment, it failed. Miserably. The Bay of Pigs invasion saw 1400 US-trained Cubans surrender to Castro’s forces within 24 hours.

1975 Angola– The CIA hired French and South African mercenaries to assist right-wing groups in their fight against the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola. The group was competing with several other paramilitary organizations in a fight to take over the country after the Portuguese decolonized. The CIA’s mercenary army predictably lost.

1979 Afghanistan– The US armed and trained the Mujaheddin fighters through Operation Cyclone. Later, many of these fighters would form the core of the fundamentalist Islamic terrorist groups we are fighting (or possibly supporting) today. Yes, Osama bin Laden was one of the fighters trained by the CIA in Afghanistan. The whole operation was carried out to stop the Soviet invasion.

1980’s El Salvador– he US-supported Salvadoran government faced opposition from communist rebels. US intelligence saw an obvious and simple answer: establish death squads. US intelligence trained and advised pro-government forces as they massacred villages and led the way to the displacement of over a million people.

1981 Nicaragua– In the 1980s, the leftist Sandinistas took power. The CIA backed the Contra militia that opposed them. The agency funneled them arms, ran cocaine for them, and trained the organization that become well known for child soldiers, massacres at literacy centers, and war crimes of just about every imaginable kind.

2002 Venezuela-On 11 April 2002, a group within Venezuela attempted to oust the government. The US flatly denied involvement. Of course, there is more than enough evidence to tie the Bush Administration to the plot. There is even circumstantial evidence in a more recent second attempt.

2014 Ukraine– The most recent revolution in Ukraine may have started organically, however, it was seized upon by US intelligence. The revolution became just another method of installing a US puppet regime. The US chose to install literal Nazis. These facts are largely ignored by US media.
