Dwight Eisenhower is about to get his memorial.
Was Dwight Eisenhower, a.k.a. Ike, a great man?
Well, if you are a believer in America the Empire, he certainly is.
And I used to be one of those believers.
Who knows what tomorrow may bring?
Someday I may be a true believer again.
But today I am not.
And so I would say that Dwight Eisenhower was not a great man.
In fact, it would be fair to state that Dwight Eisenhower was an American Quisling.
Dwight Eisenhower betrayed everything in which the Founding Fathers believed and in so doing sold America down the river.
Oh, I can’t say that?
On the contrary, I certainly can. We still live in the land of free speech, although Dwight Eisenhower was part of an elite group of people who tried everything in their power to destroy that.
I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking that Dwight Eisenhower was a great American because he defeated the Nazis.
My response to that would be to never confuse yourself with your leaders.
Your parents, grandparents, and great grandparents, depending upon your age, were honorable people in fighting and defeating the Nazis.
But your ancestors defeated the Nazis for quite different reasons than our elites defeated the Nazis.
Your ancestors defeated the Nazis because they were opposed to totalitarianism.
Our elites defeated the Nazis not because they were opposed to totalitarianism but because they were opposed to German totalitarianism.
What our elites did after defeating the Nazis was to replace German totalitarianism with American-British totalitarianism.
It’s called the New World Order, and Dwight Eisenhower was a part of that New World Order.
Please discount the video of Ike warning us about the military industrial complex. That’s a joke. Ike was the military industrial complex.
Dwight Eisenhower did immense damage to the United States of America and everything the Founding Fathers believed in.
Dwight Eisenhower backed up Alan Dulles in sending his CIA emissaries into countries around the globe to commit mayyhem on behalf of Corporate America.
We are feeling the repercussions of these CIA activities to this day.
We have immigrants flooding in from Guatemala because Ike and Alan Dulles overthrew Arbenz in 1954. Had we not taken that course of action and given those poor laborers a stake in the game, Guatemala and Central America would be a more habitable place to live for regular people; consequently, they would not feel the need to flee to United States. This is why they’re coming up here. They aren’t coming here for the benefits; they’re coming up here because US corporations have made their homeland a miserable place to live – for them.
We have enmity with Iran today because Ike and Alan Dulles overthrew Mosaddegh in 1953. Had we not taken this course of action, had we partnered with Iran, we could have established and firmed up a strong ally in the Middle East. We could have avoided the Middle East wars that we have today. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Clearly this is a lesson that Ike never learned.
Indonesia is a sweat shop for American corporations today because Ike and Alan Dulles intervened in the affairs of Indonesia in the 1950s. Although they weren’t totally successful in overthrowing Sukarno, they set the table for his overthrow in the mid-60s. In his place came Suharto, a pliable client for the US, who, with the help of the CIA, murdered one million Indonesians in the mid-60s.
We can’t escape Ike’s wicked influence upon the world.
American Presidents today are able to get away with wicked, evil behavior in part because of the precedent that Ike helped set in the Army-McCarthy hearings in which Ike denied McCarthy access to vital information which might help his case that indeed the Army was infiltrated by communists.
And it was.
This helped cement the concept of executive privilege behind which Presidents can hide all sorts of wicked behavior.
Ike was one of the chief architects of the Cold War which led to massive military spending and massive military expansion around the globe.
America is entrenched in a full-time war economy today thanks to Dwight Eisenhower. Dwight Eisenhower didn’t believe in peace amongst nations. He believed in an empire in which America would bully the world by fiat. This vision required money, a lot of money, which came off the backs of the American people.
We have a decaying infrastructure in the United States today because of our massive military spending and excessive focus on the foreign front.
This is the legacy of Dwight Eisenhower.
He was no great American in my book.
Do you believe that the Founding Fathers desired the America we have today?
Do you believe that the Founding Fathers desired that Americans be poor and without healthcare while rich plutocrats make gazillions of dollars off useless wars?
Do you believe that the Founding Fathers desired that America be a global killing machine?
Do you believe that the Founding Fathers desired the rising state of homelessness that exists in the state of California today?
This is what happens when you focus on greed, making money, and waging war in foreign lands.
Think twice before you celebrate Dwight Eisenhower.
