OUR SECRET GOVERNMENT
HOW POWERFUL is the Central Intelligence Agency? Has the CIA taken over the United States and all of its institutions? There is every indication that — along with the military-industrial complex, Wall Street, the Israel Lobby, and other power centres, such as Big Medicine — it has.
Voting is a sham. Americans have no control over their duhmockricy. What Americans believe, along with other vassals of Washington — such as Canadians and Australians — are lies manufactured by the CIA which has concentrated its efforts on mind control. Even people living in Washington's designated enemies believe these lies. The foundation of American power — the dollar — exists inside a manufactured reality that makes people believe it has value. The U.S. dollar actually has no value TODAY. The vaunted American military has not won a war since the Great Victory of 45, though it could be argued that the invasion of Grenada was a success. Yet people everywhere believe the Pentagon controls "the most powerful military the world has ever known." Americans all believe this. It is an article of faith. Americans do not know that the Red Army defeated Nazi Germany, not General Patton.
Paul Buhle in his article in CounterPunch tells us how icons of liberalism were funded by the CIA in the 50s and 60s.
The death of Warren Hinckle, a journalist long forgotten outside San Francisco, brings back Ramparts magazine’s crowning moment, also one of crucial moments of postwar liberalism. At a stroke, in March, 1967, the presumptions of innocence by purportedly freedom-loving (albeit hawkish) prestigious intellectuals were stripped off. It turned out that the grand banquets and conferences with literary-and-other luminaries, the New York Times-reported cocktail parties, indeed the whole egghead-celebrity thing, was at base a CIA operation called, without irony, the Congress for Cultural Freedom.
The CIA is the largest and most powerful agency in the American intelligence community. The CIA has its hooks deep inside Hollywood and Madison Avenue where the American Dream is manufactured. The budget of the CIA is classified as is what it does with the money. Since money can be manufactured out of thin air, the CIA has unlimited funding. Washington's enemies are manufactured for domestic consumption too.
Hardly anything could be worse — EXCEPT A PRESIDENT HILLARY CLINTON.
