Iran rejects meddling in regional states` affairs
By Gordon Duff
Today we are faced with a political contest in the United States where two parties, both long blurred, both scarred, both showing signs of corruption stand against each other.
There is a lesson in the American electoral system, one few Americans admit openly but all know too well. Any idea of democracy in America died long ago.
This contest, coming up in a few short weeks, will mean “life or death” for the future of mankind. A group of insidious master criminals, some representing terrorist elements within the Israeli society, drugs, human trafficking/prostitution, gambling and financial corruption are running Mitt Romney, one of “their own,” one of a long series of “gangster candidates” that constitute proof that democracy, as described by Mencken, is little more than “mob rule.”
Journalist H. L. Mencken, had he not died in 1956, would have been 100 years old just before the 1980 presidential election. America elected an actor, who, for 8 years, played the part of a great world leader though, through much of his term in office, he was mentally deficient due to the onset of dementia.
Mencken never liked democracy, he hated Hitler, was thought to despise Jews and, yet, was one of the most outspoken and respected men of his time. Were he alive today, he would have starved, his ideas would seem as original and uncontrolled, perhaps the greatest imaginable sin in today’s world.
In a column in the Baltimore Evening Sun in 1920, Mencken said:
“The larger the mob, the harder the test. In small areas, before small electorates, a first-rate man occasionally fights his way through, carrying even the mob with him by force of his personality.
But when the field is nationwide, and the fight must be waged chiefly at second and third hand, and the force of personality cannot so readily make itself felt, then all the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre-the man who can most easily adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum.
The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”
It wasn’t until the election of 2000, and the ascension of George W. Bush, representing international organized crime and promising war and financial collapse with the profits to those who saw him “appointed” to office that America got its “moron.”
When it became clear that the two “Bush Wars” were lost and the world’s economy had slid into a collapse it would never recover from, the same group decided to run John McCain, a mentally unstable Senator believed by key military and intelligence groups to have been psychologically broken and turned into a “Manchurian Candidate,” a “brainwashed” foreign agent planted inside the US government by the Soviet Union.
McCain, tasked with winning an election and spending his time as president as he has spent his decades in the Senate, as a lackey of organized crime, lost. The real fault was Bush (41) whose actual popularity had descended to 8%.
When the Supreme Court appointed him president by a 5/4 decision, his real popularity was about 15%, more than enough to justify assuming office when the national press has been silenced.
Few know this, but intelligence agencies get most of their information from the press. It is called “open source intelligence” and comes in two classes, the things people are told to believe and, more importantly, the efforts gone to in order to hide the truth.
Years ago, there was some free press; in America it was men like Edward R. Murrow, Walter Cronkite and Dan Rather. We watched the last of this group, Rather, be systematically destroyed by the Bush family in order to protect a handful of family secrets.
We will discuss this and a few of those secrets later on.
What has to be taken into account is that Americans are perfectly willing to accept life in the world Mencken describes, to serve the moronic, the corrupt, the genuinely evil. I still remember Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu speaking before the combined congress of the United States, his every mumbling inanity, a speech continually punctuated with ignorance, a man infamous to all world leaders as a pathological liar and the audience, America’s elected officials, spent the entire time on their feet cheering and clapping.
I had promised I would discuss Dan Rather. Rather was the anchor at CBS News, America’s greatest news organization, once years ago anyway. It is probably the “CBS News” from the period of Dan Rather or his mentor, Walter Cronkite that represents the basis for the HBO series, “Newsroom,” whose stinging commentaries on contemporary hypocrisy in politics and media shocked the nation.
Cronkite, who presided over the newscasts announcing the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, was not an adherent to conspiracies. However, by 1972, when President Nixon was caught rigging an election through a wide variety of criminal acts, it was Walter Cronkite, even more than “Woodward and Bernstein,” that exposed American politics and the totalitarian lengths Nixon was capable of.
It was Rather that replaced Cronkite. Then, in 2004, Dan Rather ran a story reporting that George W. Bush had avoided military service in Vietnam through trickery and deceit. Rather was fired from what was the most important job in journalism though it was common knowledge that the information he reported was totally true and totally documented.
Rather had to be silenced, he knew too much, so much that unless he agreed to “disappear into the sunset,” he would suffer a fate far worse than public humiliation for quality journalism and “truth telling.”
But what did he know?
About the Kennedy assassination, there were several issues involving George H. W. Bush, later the 41st president of the United States.
Immediately after the Kennedy shooting, Bush was seen standing in the doorway of the Texas School Book Depository, the same building where it was once believed that a Lee Oswald had been involved in the Kennedy killing.
The photographs clearly identify Bush; there is no question of it. Men dressed as police officers standing with Bush were photographed wearing “earpieces” used only by security agency personnel.
Then, a week after the killing, FBI chief, J. Edgar Hoover, in a letter to the State Department, identified “George Herbert Walker Bush” as a CIA agent.
The 1972 election, which led to the Watergate scandal and the resignation of Richard Nixon, was rigged in more ways than simply wiretapping and campaign sabotage.
This was a three-way race as in 1968. Oh, did we fail to mention that the candidate running against Nixon in 1968 was the brother of assassinated president John F. Kennedy, Robert, who was ahead in the polls by over 15%, a clear winner in the November election?
He was assassinated in 1968 after winning the California primary. A “Palestinian supporter” was arrested and is still in prison, Sirhan Sirhan, though, initially, police sought others for the crime and the shell casings involved in the killing didn’t come from a weapon in the possession of the man arrested and convicted. Eleven shots were fired.
Present in the room at the Ambassador Hotel were three CIA agents later suspected in complicity in the murder of the brother, part of an operation known as JMWAVE. These men are Chief of Operations David Morales, Chief of Maritime Operations Gordon Campbell and Chief of Psychological Warfare Operations George Joannides, according to the BBC.
In considering the need to destroy Dan Rather, his role in reporting 9/11 and the mysterious arrests of the Israeli team that bombed the George Washington Bridge that day was paramount.
It was necessary that Rather be destroyed and totally out of journalism when the 9/11 Commission released its report. His broadcast is available and shows that arrests were made that were never reported, something that would have destroyed the Bush presidency.
Once Robert Kennedy was killed, only George Wallace, the third party candidate that had helped Nixon get elected in1968, after the second Kennedy Murder, had to be “taken out.” An analysis of the fate of George Wallace is as follows:
“On 15th May, 1972, Arthur Bremer tried to assassinate Wallace. At a presidential campaign rally in Laurel, Maryland. Wallace was hit four times. Three other people, Alabama State Trooper Captain E. C. Dothard, Dora Thompson, a Wallace campaign volunteer, and Nick Zarvos, a Secret Service agent, were also wounded in the attack.
Mark Felt of the Federal Bureau of Investigation immediately took charge of the case. According to the historian Dan T. Carter (The Politics of Rage), Felt had a trusted contact in the White House: Charles Colson. Felt gave Colson the news. Within 90 minutes of the shooting Richard Nixon and Colson are recorded discussing the case. Nixon told Colson that he was concerned that Bremer ‘might have ties to the Republican Party or, even worse, the President’s re-election committee.’ Nixon also asked Colson to find a way of blaming George McGovern for the shooting.
Over the next few hours, Colson and Felt talk six times on the telephone. Felt gave Colson the address of Bremer’s home. Colson now phoned E. Howard Hunt and asked him to break-in to Bremer’s apartment to discover if he had any documents that linked him to Nixon.”
Sources indicate that Dan Rather holds proof of complicity on behalf of, not only George H.W. Bush but George W. Bush as well in the planning of the 1972 shooting of Wallace so conveniently blamed on other “conspirators” as listed above.
Are we establishing a pattern here? One even more obvious is the assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan, though unsuccessful, it would have propelled George H.W. Bush, the man we could tie a decade after decade of intrigue, to an early presidency.
“On the night after the assassination attempt, Scott Hinckley, John Hinckley Jr.’s brother was scheduled to have dinner with Neil Bush, who is Vice President Bush Sr.’s son. They intelligently canceled the dinner after some of the media picked up on this story.”
The American press has been silenced and that silencing has not just continued but expanded to armies of operatives dominating internet websites, endless millions of emails, social networks, search engines, cleansing the internet of unpleasant facts, scouring our consciousness of freedom of thought.
