No End to War

Why can we not have an end to war?

Why will war always be with us?

Principally because a) men have the freedom to choose poorly, b) there is no absolute correlation between wealth and intelligence, c) wealth accumulation is often a sickness that clouds wise decision making, and d) wealthy people make the decision to go to war.

This leads us to the leadership of the United States of America today.

What we have ruling America today are wealthy people, addicted to wealth, blinded by greed, enamored with war, who choose to make poor decisions that will ultimately harm them and ourselves.

Our current leaders are unable to temper their greed.

Their greed has blinded them.

The war in the Ukraine is of their doing.

America owns that war and the resultant destruction.

The war can end tomorrow.

Our wealthy who control the leadership in Ukraine can make a deal with Vladimir Putin tonight.

Here is the deal.

Ukraine will be divided into two parts by the Dnieper river.

The western part, West Ukraine, will join NATO. The eastern part, East Ukraine, will be controlled by ethnic Russians. It will not join NATO, nor will it ever join NATO.

East Ukraine will become the buffer zone between NATO and Russia.

This is the smart compromise.

This is the compromise that a prudent decision maker would make.

Our leaders are not prudent.

They are blinded by their greed and the false delusional beliefs they have about themselves.

We live in a Kim Jong-Un society.

Our leaders believe that they are infallible living gods who are entitled to rule all that exists before them.

The world belongs to them, and that’s it.

They love conquest, and they love the war in the process.

War makes them money whether they win the war or not.

If they lose the war, they go on to fight another. And another.

Our leaders win either way.

Leaders never pay for their crimes until we kill them.

Until that day comes, we suffer and live through interminable war.

Waging Peace

Is there some reason on God’s green earth why we cannot wage peace instead of war?

I don’t get it.

If we need to, why don’t we pay defense contractors and other corporations to not foment and participate in war.

You heard me right. Why don’t we pay them not to make armaments.

We pay farmers to not grow crops, so why can’t we pay corporations to not wage war?

I’ll go you one better.

Why don’t we pay arms manufactures and corporations to make everything that they need for war, bundle it up, put it on the USS Ronald Reagan, float it out to the middle of the Pacific Ocean, and dump it off?

What’s the difference between dumping all that junk in the ocean and wasting it on war?

There’s not a dime’s worth a difference because the wars we fight don’t benefit us.

In fact, by not fighting the war there would be more of us alive.

Somehow we are going to have to get off this addiction to war.

If we’re not going to act on any of those two solutions, then why don’t we pay the manufacturers to re-tool so that we can build things that we need here in the United States.

We can make a deal with the corporations: you’re not going to lose a dime. We are going to pay you the money that you got before for waging war plus an extra 10% in order to make things that we need here in the United States.

Is there some reason why we can’t do this?

I need to be educated.

Tell Me Again

Tell me again why it wasn’t possible for the United States to work with Vladimir Putin.

He was clearly the smartest guy in the room.

One only needed to watch him handle a press conference to see that this was so.

The man can speak multiple languages, and he doesn’t need a Teleprompter to give an answer.

Our presidents can barely babble their own name in English with the aid of a Teleprompter.

So why wouldn’t we work with him?

Why would we want to make him an enemy?

He does a better job for sticking up for the rights of his own people than our leaders do.

We could use a guy like that on our side.

Maybe that’s why our leaders made an enemy of him.

They don’t want anybody looking out for the welfare and benefit of Americans.

Plus our leaders want to make sure that there is plenty of justification for the military industrial complex.

If they have Vladimir Putin as an enemy, why that’s all the more reason to build ships and bases all over the world.

What’s wrong with that you ask?

What’s wrong with that is that you don’t benefit.

The citizens of empire don’t get wealthier; they become poorer.

The people who get rich are the people at the top.

The sun never set on the British empire, and it never rose upon the slums of London.

As the British empire was growing, regular British people couldn’t get out of there fast enough.

The immigration rates into the United States were humongous.

During the 1800s, America was not an international empire builder.

Thank God.

Consequently, people could generally keep the fruits of their labors.

Unfortunately our leaders, the Harvard Cabal, cozied up to the British and adopted their bad habits.

One of those bad habits is the necessity of tear-assing all over the world so as to exploit other people.

Yes, there is something wrong with our leaders.

They are physically and mentally ill.

They aren’t satisfied with making a little bit of money.

Their greed gene is always on; their compassion gene is always off.

They’re biologically sick.

One of their big scams is to create war.

When there’s war, there’s plenty of need to make stuff to fight the war.

Hence the conflict with Vladimir Putin.

Our leaders could’ve easily worked with Vladimir Putin.

But they didn’t.

They didn’t because for them there’s no money in peace.

In peacetime, we win.

In peacetime, they lose.

Hence the conflict with Putin.

That’s what it’s all about, baby.

Cross the Rubicon

Have you crossed the Rubicon?

Have you come to see the truth behind our leaders?

Have you come to see what war is really about?

Have you come to see that our leaders are not good people like you?

Until you have crossed the Rubicon, you will always be fooled.

Until you have crossed the Rubicon, you will always be mystified by current events.

War is about making money for the criminal elite.

It’s always been about making money for the criminal elite.

Saving democracy? Preserving the American way?

That’s for the people the elites dismiss as chumps. That’s the rubric they use to sell war to people who haven’t crossed the Rubicon.

Do yourself a favor. Cross the Rubicon.

You will be glad you did.

For the first time in your life, you will be able to see clearly.

Don’t be stupid like I was.

Don’t waste decades of your life.

You don’t have to be stupid because I was already stupid for you.

War is an end to itself.

Our leaders couldn’t care less about winning a war anymore.

War is the endgame.

War enables all US corporations to participate and make a pile of cash at your expense.

To fight a war, you have to build the equivalent of Corpus Christi, Texas over there in the middle of a field 12,000 miles away.

You have to copy and build everything that exists in Corpus Christi.

Whatever you can point to in Corpus Christi has to be re-created over there.

That includes ice cream, gypsum board, lights, electrical wire, asphalt paving products, buildings, photo frames, everything.

Keep going.

Pens, televisions, coffee tables, clocks, breakfast pastries, sofas, roofing tiles, wall paintings.

I’m just randomly freely associating and ripping off items that are before me as I look around the room.

Everything that you can see, everything that you can name has to be re-created.

That’s why corporations love war.

It’s an economic program.

It’s a bad economic program.

But it is the program of our leaders.

Once you cross the Rubicon, you will come to see this.

You will come to see that the battle between Republicans and Democrats is a dog and pony show created to distract you.

You will come to see that the battles and choices that are presented to you are false.

The current phony battle is the battle over Ukraine.

You are being led to believe that Russia, led by the evil Vladimir Putin, is an ogre that must be defeated.

Putin is just another name on Americas long list of enemies. Stalin, Hitler, Hirohito, Mussolini, Saddam Hussein, Ho Chi Minh, Pol Pot, Mao, Idi Amin, Muammar Qaddafi, Kim Jong Un, Kim Jong Un’s father and grandfather, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Nicholas Maduro, Daniel Ortega, Salvador Allende, Jacobo Arbenz, Patrice Lamumba, Sukarno, the Ayatollah Khomeini, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Xi Jinping and many, many more.

Now, if you knew a person who had that many enemies, wouldn’t you start asking if there was something wrong with that person? Wouldn’t it be natural to ask if the person with that many enemies was doing something to create those enemies?

Maybe that person is a greedy bully?

Media “experts” never ask that question.

Instead media “experts” tell you that defending Ukraine is as an existential war that must be fought.

Russia is as an evil Empire, they say, an adversary of goodness and decency.

This is false.

Russians are not evil.

They are just like you. They desire peace also. Their leaders are playing the same game on them that our leaders are playing on us.

Russia is a civilization that has contributed vastly to the benefit of the world.

Russia is not a backwater of animals and barbarians. That’s a lie that leaders use to sucker you into a war.

Russians have excelled in physics, literature, ballet, chemistry, sports, music, you name it.

Anton Checkhov was Russian.

Mendelyev who discovered the periodic table in chemistry was Russian.

Baryshnikov and Nureyev were Russians.

Why would we want to wipe out the Russians?

We have nothing against the Russian people.

Yet today as we speak, Mark Levin and Sean Hannity play the Russia card. They play up the same nonsense that was played up under Ronald Reagan: Russia the ogre. Russia the destroyer.

This isn’t the case.

Hannity and Levin are puppets of the powers that be. They wouldn’t be where they were unless they were puppets.

If they weren’t puppets, the elites would get rid of them.

They both make a lot of cash selling themselves to the huge number of people they reach on television.

So do their counterparts on the so-called other side of the political spectrum.

Listen to me. Anybody who benefits off the national agenda cannot be trusted.

Hannity and Levin exist to keep the phony battle going.

They become fabulously wealthy as you fight this stupid battle.

Wake up, Mommy.

Wake up, Poppy.

Cross the Rubicon.

Quit being a puppet. Quit being a stooge. Quit being putty in their hands.

Wake up and see the truth.

War is an endgame to itself, a profit maker for the phony crony capitalists in Corporate America, an issue distractor for our phony leaders who refuse to make your life better by enabling a true free market which can provide better paying jobs, more money in your pocket, a peaceful life, affordable education and better, more inexpensive healthcare insurance.

Our Stupid Leaders

Did you see Joe Biden’s latest tough-guy move. Here it is right here.

Our leaders just don’t get it.

What don’t they get?

The goal is to create friends – not enemies.

The very fact that we have to go after someone and kill him because he’s an enemy is an indictment of our leadership.

The United States creates enemies – not friends.

Furthermore, we took an individual out in another sovereign nation – not our own.

We just invited ourselves in and assumed that we could do what we wanted to do.

Hey, that’s what we do.

We’re Americans.

We own the fucking world.

Wait a minute now.

How would we feel if other countries came into our country and took out our leaders?

It’s not going to take too long before the enemies that our leaders have created do just that.

The United States has a bad habit of thinking it can go around the world and kick ass without retaliation.

That’s a mistake.

Unfortunately, it’s the people of the United States who are going to pay for the stupidity of its leaders.

Do you wanna know something?

When I was young in my 20s, I didn’t think this way.

I was a hawk.

I used to watch these Vietnam veterans who were against the Vietnam war, and I thought they were traitors.

I thought they were hurting America.

I was wrong.

The Value of Honor

Right now, right at this moment, I am watching a ceremony on television that I watched as a child when I visited Washington, DC.

I am at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and soldiers are walking through the ceremony.

The soldiers are immaculately dressed, and they perform admirably.

It is a beautiful ceremony, but I must guard myself to not take the wrong lessons away from it.

Washington can seduce you when you visit there.

There are many memorials and monuments worth seeing.

They represent the history of our country, and it is a country that we can be proud of.

But these monuments also have the power to destroy.

Many of these monuments were built by Americans of a different generation who did not think the way we now think.

Our country has drifted far from its religious underpinnings.

When our antecedents built memorials, God, and all the good that God represents, was foremost in their minds.

The power of Caesar was not.

And yet, the white marble, the vastness of the buildings, their sheer weight and size, can so be easily misconstrued as to what these monuments represent.

Lincoln was a godly man who was not so much concerned as to whether God was on his side but whether he was on God’s side.

His memorial must convey that.

As must the others.

But we are not of Lincoln’s era.

Nor that of the Founding Fathers.

And so these monuments have taken on a different meaning.

They are now a catalogue of sites that Americans check off as part of an indoctrination program into America’s might and power.

Our news media forever crows about America as the most powerful nation on earth.

As do our leaders.

The President of the United States is regularly feted as the most powerful man on the face of the earth.

Did Lincoln shower himself with such illusions?

The monuments are now part of the supporting cast to justify our Presidents’ decisions on waging war around the globe.

The monuments sanctify us, purify us, justify us.

But that was not their intent when they were first constructed.

Monuments and memorials do not exist for war. Nor do they exist to create heroes.

Nor do they serve as a pretext for vengeance or domination.

They exist to deliver a message.

Those men who sacrificed their lives as in the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier are talking to us.

They want to tell us something.

They are asking us to dedicate our lives to forging a better world than the one that took their life.

As Lincoln said in the Gettysburg address:

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Why Are Wars Fought?

Why are wars fought?

Don’t be a sucker like I was. I was the most naïve person who ever lived. I believed in social justice. I still do.

But as I say, I was a sucker.

I believed that wars were fought for social justice.

Are wars fought for social justice?

This is the conventional wisdom pervading mainstream media. It exists to delude you into thinking that somebody out there cares.

Let me disabuse you of this notion. Wars are not fought for social justice.

It’s pretty safe to say that no war has ever been fought for social justice.

That includes our Civil War.

Humanity is not noble.

Let me make my case to you so that you can see that what I say is so.

Let’s say that you are leading a massive group of people who want to free the Uighurs in China.

Let’s say that you have 40 million people behind you. I’ll tell you what, let’s sweeten the pot to 300 million people.

What are you going to do to get that war prosecuted?

Well, you would probably lobby the government and its officials. They may even agree with you.

What’s the next step?

Sooner or later, someone’s going to have to ask: What do we stand to gain out of this war?

What’s the point of the war?

The big dweebs in finance will weigh in.

Somebody in New York City is going to be consulted and they are going to want to know what profit it is to the banks who may be loaning money.

What do we stand to gain? What do we stand to lose?

Wars cost money.

You may respond: We will free the Uighurs from injustice.

Do you know how the bankers will respond?

They will laugh in your face. They want to know what profits will accrue to the corporations that are fighting the war. They want to know if we are going to win.

Banks don’t bet on losing propositions.

Big banks bet on winners.

Bankers couldn’t care less about social justice. They care about profits.

This is the reality of humanity.

And it is the bankers and the big corporations that make the decisions to go to war. Regular people don’t make those decisions.

Once you understand this, world events will make sense to you. You will get rid of this idea of events arising from the need to achieve social justice. You will disabuse yourself of the social view of history.

Stay away from the social view of history.

The social view of history says that humanity and civilizations change because of social movements.

The social view history interprets world events in terms of people, their ethnicities, their race, their beliefs.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

You will always be confused about world events if you try to interpret world events in terms of social movements.

You will never be confused about world events if you interpret events in terms of money and profits.

We human beings don’t like to admit that.

We prefer to live behind a façade of nobility.

We are not noble.

We fight wars for money.

We are no different than those tribes that emerged from the woods thousands upon thousands of years ago.

Big movements that pretend to care about social justice are in reality financed by corporations who have a hidden economic agenda.

Movements cost money.

Hitler’s movement in Nazi Germany cost big bucks. It takes a lot of money to pay for uniforms, rallies, officers and organizational efforts.

Hitler’s movement was funded by Wall Street and its German corporate collaborators.

Black Lives Matter is funded by Corporate America.

That’s reality.

Don’t be a sucker like I was.

Afghanistan

Who should we blame for Afghanistan?

Fox News clearly has hunkered down in its bunker to put the blame on Biden.

CNN responds by heaping the guilt on Trump.

Sigh.

It’s the same old game that the elites want to rope you into playing.

Republicans versus Democrats.

Please don’t get suckered.

Please don’t get conned.

Please don’t get hoodwinked or bamboozled.

What happened in Afghanistan is an indictment of the elites who control both parties.

Afghanistan was the creation of Corporate America who controls the political class lock stock and barrel.

Afghanistan, my friend, was another war created by Corporate America to make money for Corporate America.

Forget about the minerals in Afghanistan.

The real money, trillions of it, was made in fighting the war.

Welcome to the new reality.

The reality is that America’s economic model is war.

America is no longer a place where we make things. America is a place where we fight wars to enrich the elites.

It’s not just the defense contractors. It’s incorrect to pin it all on Raytheon.

Everybody makes money off war if you are a member of Corporate America.

McDonald’s makes money. Starbucks makes money.

Let me explain.

In order to fight a war in a jungle, Vietnam, in the mountains, Afghanistan, in a desert, Iraq, you have to re-create Corpus Christi Texas.

You have to create a city for 250,000 soldiers and civilian personnel.

That means that you have to create everything in the city from the streets to the ice cream bars.

Look at the room you are sitting in now and point to any object randomly. Wherever your finger points to, whether it’s gypsum board, a picture on the wall, a ceiling fan, tile on the floor, a television set, drinking glasses, pillows, window panes, all of those items are necessary.

Once you understand that, you understand why war is so attractive to Corporate America.

War is a make work project where everyone benefits. It’s very much like those ghost cities that China builds. You know what I’m talking about, right?

No?

China builds ghost cities, enormous cities that are unoccupied. They were built to make work for the workers.

In the United States we build cities also, but we build them in other countries when we go to war.

That’s our economic model, friend.

And now you know why war exists.

It doesn’t exist to win it anymore.

That’s why the wars last so fucking long.

Winning the war would mean the cash cow would end.

OMG, that would be terrible for the economy.

Beyond that, the elites take a disproportionate share of the trillions that are necessary to fight the war.

How do you think the rich got so rich?

Here’s a kicker for you. A cold war in which we don’t fight a war but instead build ships and bases because we are afraid of a war make even more money for the wealthy elites.

Peace through strength is the euphemism that the knuckleheads give it. Only it never leads to peace, not in the past or now.

Cold Wars are the elixir of life for the war gods.

That’s why Fox News and CNN are always drumming up the threat of Russia or China attacking us.

Who in fuck‘s name are they kidding?

None of these countries was ever a threat to America.

Do you want to know why?

Because we are oceans away from them.

In addition to that, our military spending is astronomically larger than theirs.

We are the biggest motherfuckers in the valley. That we should have to fear anyone is a joke.

Our biggest enemy is Corporate America.

Fox News and CNN both promote war. They love war. They loved the Afghanistan war.

They promoted the war because Corporate America wanted them to promote the war.

Corporate America owns them.

Corporate America also controls The New York Beobacter and The Washington Goebbels who also hawk for war.

Ditto to the Wall Street Fascist.

But none of them want you to know that it’s Corporate America that controls them.

So to distract you they play up the same old tiresome dog and pony show of Republicans versus Democrats.

As long as you are focused on this stupid Republicans versus Democrats sporting match that they promote, you will never understand that it’s Corporate America that is the enemy.

If you have a loved one who died in Afghanistan or Vietnam or any of the other useless wars America fights, I empathize with you.

If you want your loved one’s death or injury to count for something, let it count for this: The complete grinding into dust of Corporate America.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

The Social View of History

Are you confused by current events? Are you perplexed as to why things are the way they are?

Do you get confused when politicians go against their campaign promises whether that candidate be a Democrat or a Republican?

If you do, it is probably because you believe in the social view of history.

Not surprisingly, the media and our elites promote the social view of history.

It’s an attractive concept, but it’s wrong.

What moves history and politicians is economics.

The social view of history is wrong.

The social view history states that it is people, their philosophies, their ideologies that move history and shape events. Consequently, much effort is spent to understanding people, cultures and their thinking.

This is reflected by our educational institutions that teach courses in social studies, not history.

The indoctrination into the social view of history is pervasive.

It begins in elementary school, then continues through high school and into college. It is perpetuated by the media.

What is never talked about to any large degree is the monetary view of history, or the economic view of history.

In the economic view of history, it is money and the acquisition of it by the elites that moves history.

This view is never taught in school, and is never talked about much by the media, because it would reveal who the real power in the world is.

If people started talking about economics to any large degree, then war might see the end of its existence as a ruling force in the world.

Wars are often seen and portrayed by the elites and the modern media as a natural consequence of two social forces coming up against each other.

Frequently these two social forces are portrayed as freedom destroyers versus freedom fighters, or wealthy capitalists versus poor working class peasants.

But what if it isn’t that way? What if that is a lie?

What if the wars are being fought because the elites on both sides want to justify their existence as well as make a pile of loot along the way?

What if the social view of history is wrong?

Let’s ask some questions.

Was the war in Vietnam fought to save democracy? Or was it fought because the US wanted to extend its hegemony over Southeast Asia for the purposes of oil and rubber extraction? Let’s not forget about palm oil. We have more palm oil in our bodies than blood.1

Was the war in Syria fought because the US truly desired freedom for the people in Syria? Or was it fought because the US and its ally Israel wanted to damage the Syria-Iran axis – the Syria-Iran axis being a threat to the western allies’ beachhead in the Middle East, that being Israel?

Did the US elites really care that Assad was oppressing his people? They didn’t care about the Saudi regime oppressing its people.

Was the war in Japan fought because the Japanese were oppressing the rights of other peoples in the Pacific Rim, or was it fought because the Japanese were fucking around with America’s rubber plantations? Or perhaps the vital assets that might one day be extracted from Indonesia? Or the oil in Sumatra?

How about the takeover of the Philippines by the US in the early part of the 20th century? Was that undertaken in order to improve the life for Filipinos? Or was it undertaken because the Philippines sits in an important geo-political location? Wouldn’t the Philippines be the ideal place to place bases from which to send bomber jets into countries in Southeast Asia – just in case they got any ideas that might fuck with our money?

The same can be asked of Cuba. Did the US really care about improving the life of Cubans? Or did the US want Cuba in order to exploit its citizenry so as to give us cheap sugar?

Was the Civil War in the United States fought to free the slaves? Or was it fought because the South after seceding was free to import finished goods from England thus creating competition for northern factories? Or maybe it was fought to free up cheap black labor for northern factories who could pay them “slave” wages? Or maybe it was fought to free up cheap black labor to act as scabs against emerging Northern unions?

Why was Jacobo Arbenz overthrown in Guatemala by the CIA? Because the US cared for the citizens of Guatemala who might live under communist oppression? Or was it fought in order to put down labor unions who might represent an economic threat to greedy corporate fruit importers like United fruit (Chiquita) and Standard Fruit (Dole)?

Why did we really fight in Afghanistan? Was it to get Al-Qaeda and bin Laden? Or was it to secure the vital minerals that are found there? Or maybe it was to make corporations a pile of money by fighting a war. We didn’t invade Pakistan. Isn’t that where bin Laden was ultimately found?

Let’s not forget about Iraq. Why did we go to war there? Wasn’t Saddam Hussein our former ally? Didn’t Rumsfeld once shake his hand? Did we really care about Saddam’s oppression of his people? We didn’t care for decades, so why now? Is it possible we went to war because Saddam Hussein was threatening the petrodollar? Or maybe we wanted to make corporations even more money by fighting a war?

Of course, the elites don’t want you asking too many questions. They would rather have you play the same idiotic game that is played out on national television every day of the week.

They want you to engage in the sporting match known as left versus right, Democrats versus Republicans, capitalists versus peasants.

The social view of history rapes you and removes you from the truth. While you debate and fight at the local level against your opponent be he or she Democrat or Republican, the corporate elites are laughing all the way to the bank.

Sincerely,

Ike’s Legacy

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.

Sincerely,

Archer Crosley
