Who "They" are
Someone was asking this question on another diary. It was a question brought up in the 70’s to try to discredit the left back then and IMO it worked.
Well, nowadays we know exactly who “they” are and who they’ve always been. So I’ll let you younger folks in on it:
In the early 30’s Prescott Bush plotted a military coup to overthrow FDR. It never happened because the man they approached, Smedley Butler, blew the lid off the entire enterprise.
In 1933, Butler was approached by men representing a clique of multi-millionaire industrialists and bankers. They hated U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) with a passion, and saw his “New Deal” policies as the start of a communist take-over that threatened their interests. FDR even had the temerity to announce that the U.S. would stop using its military to interfere in Latin American affairs! Wall Street’s plutocrats were aghast! They had long been accustomed to wielding tremendous control over the government’s economic policies, including the use of U.S. forces to protect their precious foreign investments. Because of Butler’s steadfast military role in upholding U.S. business interests abroad, the plotters mistakenly thought they could recruit him to muster a “super-army” of veterans to use as pawns in their plan to subjugate or, if necessary, eliminate FDR.
Butler played along in order to determine who was behind the plot. He later testifying under oath before the MacCormack-Dickstein House Committee on un-American Activities. During that testimony Butler named those who were directly involved in the plot. He also identified an powerful organization that was behind the scenes coordinating and backing the plot. This organization, the American Liberty League, was comprised of some of America’s wealthiest bankers, financiers and corporate executives. (Click the American Liberty League link for details on the League’s main backers.)
Dig deeper and you find that a very large percentage of those people had KKK ties. These people then went on to form the CIA. This organization was never about counter intelligence. It was created from day one to be a rogue entity to use against the working class and the left.
The Deep State is an unholy alliance between the Deep South and banksters on Wall St.
It was later, in the 60’s that the CIA killed Kennedy when he threatened to dismantle the organization.
They targeted “FDR” Democrats, civil rights leaders, etc. Thus the assassination of Bobby Kennedy, MLK, etc.
In the 70’s, the neocons – Dick Cheney was put in charge of this as WH Chief of Staff – began the dismantling of the New Deal. In the 80’s their man Reagan continued the fascists agenda. George Bush had taken over for his daddy by this time. Bush has been identified as having been involved in the Kennedy Assassination, indicating the Bush families central role in the neocon movement to destroy FDR’s legacy.
Bill Clinton aided the CIA drug smuggling operations of the 80’s. He allowed heroin to be landed at runways in Arkansas. This was during the Drugs for Weapons days of the Reagan administration. His reward for being part of the CIA-Bush-Deep State regime was becoming the next POTUS. Then came Bush Jr. then Obama. Now Trump.
People can claim Hillary was supposed to be next, but Trump just pulled back the ban on highly lethal viruses.
As I have been saying for over a decade and have said here many times, the next step in the neocon agenda, as detailed in the PNAC
Cheney was a founder for the Project for a New American Century (PNAC). This is the neocon Holy Grail. If you want to know what they plan for America’s future, just read that. It contains all sorts of wonderful ideas, like how a “Pearl Harbor” type event would be necessary to propel America into their “process of transformation”. A completely “Ledeenian” type of statement. Or how we should develop genome-specific bioweapons. Eugenics being right up Michael Ledeen’s alley, I suppose.
So Trump is merely continuing the agenda of the Deep State. Meaning all this Russiagate crap is exactly what most of us have been saying all along: a diversion from the Democrats stealing the primary from Bernie and fear mongering to keep Democrats in line and continue voting “lesser evil” instead of creating a viable third party to challenge their power.
Let’s not forget what the agenda of the Deep State is and always was: Nazi fascism and southern racism. That’s why Nixon started the War on Drugs.
…by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”
Their next step is to develop genome specific bioweapons, ie, The Final Solution.
Stop worrying so much about who “They” are and start asking yourself: what needs to be done to stop them?
I’m going to Edit to add more to this:
Prescott Bush, as has been pointed out in the comments below, was in league with the financier of Nazi Germany while at Harriman Brown Bros. Investment firm. The members of this firm were all members at Yales Skull and Bones society. The Skull and Bones were established in 1856 as Russell Trust Association. By 1978, all business by Russell Trust was handled by its lone trustee, Brown Brothers Harriman partner John B. Madden, Jr. Madden started with Brown Brothers Harriman in 1946, under senior partner Prescott Bush.
This Society is what linked the southern racists forever with the banksters and industrialists.
Yale was the northern college favored by southern slave-owning would-be aristocrats. Among Yale’s southern students were John C. Calhoun, later the famous South Carolina defender of slavery against nationalism, and Judah P. Benjamin, later Secretary of State for the slave-owners’ Confederacy.
Young South Carolinian Joseph Heatly Dulles, whose family bought their slaves with the money from contract-security work for the British conquerors in India, was in a previous secret Yale group, the “Society of Brothers in Unity.” At Yale Dulles worked with the Northern secessionists and attached himself to Daniel Lord; their two families clove together in the fashion of a gang. The Lords became powerful Anglo-American Wall Street lawyers, and J.H. Dulles’s grandson was the father of Allen Dulles and John Foster Dulles.
Yep, the Deep State connection is clear. The Dulles made certain that the CIA was a rogue entity from its inception. And to this day, there traditional business endeavor – drug running – is a well known CIA staple.
Skull and Bones–the Russell Trust Association–was first established among the class graduating from Yale in 1833. Its founder was William Huntington Russell of Middletown, Connecticut. The Russell family was the master of incalculable wealth derived from the largest U.S. criminal organization of the nineteenth century: Russell and Company, the great opium syndicate.
Samuel Russell, second cousin to Bones founder William H., established Russell and Company in 1823. Its business was to acquire opium from Turkey and smuggle it into China, where it was strictly prohibited, under the armed protection of the British Empire.
In my Usual Suspects series, I uncovered evidence of this ongoing opium syndicate operating in Turkey. The Usual Suspects: The Heroin Connection
In 1995 Perle, along with Douglas Feith, illegally act as advisors to the government of Bosnia during the Dayton peace talks without registering with the Department of Justice, as required by law. Perle goes on to serve as military advisor to Bosnia. Within months, Perle is lobbying to get Turkey to arm and train Bosnian muslims, which he claims is of vital interest to the United States.
It is soon after this that it becomes apparent to Interpol that the KLA has taken over heroin trafficking from Turkish criminal elements and that the KLA is also receiving protection from the US. Intercepted messages speak of the desire to drown the western infidels in drugs. Interpol realizes that Turkish-Albanian drug smuggling and political activities are deeply intertwined and that Osama bin Ladin is involved.
Perle was a signatory on the PNAC letter sent to President Clinton in 1998 calling for him to use military force against the Serbs. They urge Clinton to support the KLA.
As is also pointed out in the comments below, the Business Plot involved the Morgan Bank (though not the Harriman Bros). That would be John Pierpont Morgan. The Pierponts were Skull and Bones. One of them administered the estate of Benedict Arnold.
So a Society founded by southern secessionists and Tories, neither of whom sided with the founding fathers, but believed in Authoritarianism, found friends in Nazi Germany, snuck German scientists out at the wars end, worked with closely with the Nazi parties chief financier, founded the CIA and hated the New Deal has existed for nearly 2 centuries and people still ask who “they” are?Koko, TRex, mntleo2 and 50 othersPuffGranny, ccinamon, Segami, JEB, VagrantPeters, 7wo7rees, Baba OhReally, Pacco Fransisco, ElfinWilde, leveymg, Ichingcarpenter, Deadpool, hypergrove, Salemcourt, tokenlib, Harold, NJOCK, Ferd Berfel, ctsnowman, Phlem, xynthee, djean111, iggy, jwirr, h-32, Enthusiast, Colors of the Rainbow, Grateful Curd, ThinkingANew, chknltl, ravensong, slay, Haikugal, glinda, Marym625, Cassiopeia, talkstoclouds, hopemountain, ThouArtThat, PADemD, incognito, Peace Patriot, DamnYankeeInHouston, GloriaMundi, OCMI, 99thMonkey, 3FingerBrown, Johnny Rash, caliny, bemildred like this
Think of all the “moderates” who, throughout history, have failed to oppose state-sanctioned aggression, oppression, and abuse, from slavery to child labor, while maligning those who call for change as dangerous and misguided, violent radicals. And yet, in retrospect, when a renewed social contract is established as the new normal, the unlawful actions that brought about these societal shifts are turned into mythical tales of nationalistic heroism and dates for kids to memorize at school.https://limitedhangoutblog.com/2017/02/08/lets-talk-about-violence/
