The socialists on the left do not want a job. They want more government freebies. They do not care where the government gets the money to pay for it. They believe that they are entitled to freebies and anyone who says otherwise will not get their vote. It doesn't matter what Bill Clinton did. It was what he said that got the lefties to vote for him. NAFTA, Welfare Reform, Sending US Military personnel into armed conflict without consent of congress, sexual harassment, lying under oath...nothing Bill Clinton did even mattered to the lefties. They loved the man because he told them what they wanted to hear. Same thing is true with Obama. It doesn't matter what do does right before their very eyes. They like what he is telling them and that is all that matters. They just listen to what he says and ignore their lying eyes. Obama has failed us but he had a lot of help.

Yes, it does make sense, and you are correct in most of what you say, I think. But fascism elevated propaganda to an art form before the US government (somewhat in control of the CFR then) adopted it after WWII as a routine means of control and manipulation of the masses.
Use of propaganda isn't at all new, of course. Even before the printing press, gossip and rumor was used for propaganda dissemination. In the USA, it was crucial in the effort to engage the USA in WWII in the European theater. Britain spent lots of time and money propagandizing in the USA. Even then, US citizens only approved of sending aid and munitions to the allies. It took Pearl Harbor to galvanize the US public and approve of fighting in the war. Newspapers still had ethics and opposing opinions still got published.
In a country where the press speaks out (is ALLOWED to speak out) about propaganda, the people can read about both sides or about an exposure or about refutation of propaganda. When the media is controlled/owned by the fascists, the people have only the propaganda. Alternative media is vilified and ridiculed by the major media and corrupt politicians. Sheeple who are more comfortable reading propaganda buy into any cover up, as long as it seems 'official.' The CFR is very adept at giving the sheeple warm fuzzies - telling them what they want to hear.
This is what we are seeing now. This business about FOX news being opposed in some way to the current administration is merely part of the puppet show used for plausible deniability. If thinking people in the USA knew that all the media was under CFR control, they might start going more often to alternative media to look for truth - and finding it.
“Once the ruling members of the CFR shadow government have decided that the U.S. Government should adopt a particular policy, the very substantial research facilities of (the) CFR are put to work to develop arguments, intellectual and emotional, to support the new policy, and to confound and discredit, intellectually and politically, any opposition.”

Radioactive particles can get stored in our bodies and radiate there for as long as we live. Getting a single dose of radioactivity from the outside isn't the same. In that case, cells are damaged and can be replaced by the body if the damage isn't too extensive. But you are correct - if fish eat radioactive particles, which in turn are ingested by humans, there's unending trouble. Toxic waste acts in similar ways.

Europe still has a rough time from fallout from Chernobyl. Fallout fell on livestock pastures and crop fields, which got processed for human consumption. The land for miles around Chernobyl is still unusable because crops can take in radioactive particles.

Fascism is on the march today in America. Millionaires are marching to the tune. It will come in this country unless a strong defense is set up by all liberal and progressive forces... A clique of U.S. industrialists is hell-bent to bring a fascist state to supplant our democratic government, and is working closely with the fascist regime in Germany and Italy. Aboard ship a prominent executive of one of America's largest financial corporations told me point blank that if the progressive trend of the Roosevelt administration continued, he would be ready to take definite action to bring fascism to America."

VIDEO:‘FBI Snitch’ Al Sharpton Gets Heckled:‘Are You Here to Snitch on the Rioters?’

August 13, 2014 By Matthew Burke



As MSNBC’s race-hustling Marxist Al Sharpton hurried to Ferguson, Missouri, never allowing a crisis to be a wasted opportunity to bask in the limelight, following the death of Michael Brown, he was greeted by a message spray-painted on a looted QuickTrip (QT) convenience store during the riots, that was no doubt directed towards him.


The spray-painted message said:“Snitches get Stitches.”

“Reverend” Sharpton, whose previously reported mob ties led him to also become an FBI informant, aka: CI-7, had the message brought to his attention by Progressives Today reporter Adam Sharp on Tuesday (see video below).

While very few details have been revealed regarding the shooting of 18-year old Michael Brown, reportedly unarmed, by a policeman he was in a physical altercation with, Sharpton, who recently compared Obama’s ‘suffering’ to Jesus, plays judge, jury, and executioner as he tells the reporter that he’s there to talk about a “cop that needs to go to jail.”

Adam Sharp:“Reverend Sharpton, the term ‘Snitches Get Snitches’ was spray painted on the burned out QuikTrip. Since you are a federal snitch, sir, do you fear for your life?”

Al Sharpton:“I’m not a snitch.(Not true) But today I want to tell the feds about a cop that needs to go to jail.”

Adam Sharp:“Are you in fear for your life being a federal informant and…”

Sharpton:“I want to inform on this policeman today.”

Sharp:“Are you here to snitch on the rioters?… Are you here to work with your FBI partners?”

Sharpton:(no response)

Sharp:“Are you here to work with your FBI partners…since you are a federal informant, sir?”

Sharpton:(no response)

Sharp:“Anybody who doesn’t believe me can go Google it. He’s a fed snitch. Google it, man, I ain’t lyin’.”

The Plot to Overthrow FDR /


The Story Behind Obama’s Remarks on FDR
What really went on in the first few months after FDR was elected?
11/18/2010 / http://tinyurl.com/26b237u
“We didn’t actually, I think, do what Franklin Delano Roosevelt did, which was basically wait for six months until the thing had gotten so bad that it became an easier sell politically because we thought that was irresponsible. We had to act quickly.”- President Obama
Sometimes a chance remark trains a searchlight on aspects of the historical record that would otherwise be shrouded in Stygian blackness for a generation. So I think it was yesterday when in the Huffington Post, Leo J. Hindery, Jr. quoted from a transcript of President Obama’s remarks to a group of liberal bloggers who were querying his handling of the financial crisis.

FDR's Response to the Plot to Overthrow Him
October 3, 2008 / http://tinyurl.com/4pw9kw6
Perhaps the most alarming slice of twentieth-century U.S. political history is virtually unknown to the general public, including most scholars of American history.
In 1934 a special Congressional committee was appointed to conduct an investigation of a possible planned coup intended to topple the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and replace it with a government modelled on the policies of Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. The shocking results of the investigation were promptly scotched and stashed in the National Archives. While the coup attempt was reported at the time in a few newspapers, including The New York Times, the story disappeared from public memory shortly after the Congressional findings were made available to president Roosevelt. It was the recent release from the Archives of the Congressional report that prompted the BBC and Horton commentaries.

No one spins a conspiracy theory like TV preacher Pat Robertson
08/12/14
By Steve Benen
TV preacher Pat Robertson, just as a matter of course, believes the Obama administration is “destroying this nation.” The rationale varies – sometimes it’s the president’s support for gay rights, sometimes it’s abortion, sometimes it’s helping Americans receive affordable medical care – but the common thread is always the same: the radical televangelist thinks the White House is up to no good.
But as Right Wing Watch reports today, Robertson had an especially entertaining argument on the subject today.
Is Bob McDonnell the latest Religious Right “victim” of President Obama’s purported persecution of conservatives? Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson and Jay Sekulow did their best to paint the former Republican governor of Virginia as the victim of a “political prosecution,” decrying his corruption trial as a “political witch hunt” spearheaded by Attorney General Eric Holder.
Robertson alleged, without any evidence, that Holder wanted to stop Mitt Romney from tapping McDonnell as his running mate in 2012 and is “behind all of this stuff.”
So, let me get this straight. The former Virginia governor, facing all kinds of serious corruption allegations and a mountain of evidence, was the subject of a lengthy investigation from criminal prosecutors. Last year, those prosecutors delayed McDonnell’s criminal indictment so as to avoid interfering with the state’s gubernatorial race. Eventually, a grand jury agreed to indict.
But Robertson and the lead of Robertson’s far-right legal group believe that’s just a ruse. What’s really happening, they assure us, is that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is out to get McDonnell for political reasons.
“It is just one more reason why this administration is just destroying this nation,” Robertson said.
Um, no.

John McCain’s friend Fred Dalton Thompson : enabled S & L crisis of '80s
Please spread the word....this is not the type of man we want as President.
In 1975, Thompson began his eighteen year engagement as a lobbyist in Washington, D.C., eventually representing clients including Westinghouse, General Electric (the current corporate owner of the NBC Universal-NBC television network), Westinghouse used to own CBS TV and the Tennessee Savings and Loan League

By 1982, Thompson worked the U.S. Congress membership as a lobbyist for passage of the Savings and Loan deregulation legislation desired by the Tennessee Savings and Loan League --- in this case, federal deregulation legislation allowing for additional government support of ailing S&Ls; giving U.S. thrifts the freedom to invest in potentially more profitable, but riskier, ventures; and eliminating interest-rate ceilings on new accounts to increase S&Ls' competitiveness.

Enacted into law during in September 1982, the Senate bill pushed by Thompson was incorporated into the Garn - St Germain Depository Institutions Act of 1982.
The Garn - St Germain Depository Institutions Act of 1982 is widely credited with having laid the groundwork for the U.S. Savings and Loan crisis of the late 1980s

The savings and loans crashes of the 1980s, themselves directly the result of Reagan’s deregulation of the banking industry, is more interesting because of how it reflects the rapacious nature of unbridled capitalism than of Neil Bush himself. Who by the way, is now embroiled in another scam with his latest venture, educational software, Ignite
(turnover $20 million, much of it from educational subsidies obtained in the state of Florida ,where,‘coincidentally’ of course, his bro Jeb Bush, was governor).

Government Bailouts: A U.S. Tradition Dating to Hamilton
SEPTEMBER 20, 2008 / http://tinyurl.com/ygk788s
The bubble pops. Lenders freeze. Depositors lose faith. Panic spreads. And the government steps in because nobody else will.
Today it is Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke putting together the rescue package for a financial system rocked by falling home prices and a wave of defaults on subprime mortgages.
But a short walk through U.S. history demonstrates the point made by Alex J. Pollock of the American Enterprise Institute: "If you would like an empirical law of government behavior, it is that in a panic or threatened financial collapse, governments intervene -- every government, every party, every country, every time."
