We could round up the majority of congress, the President, and the CIA upper echelons like Hayden, using their own terrorist by-association laws they passed. Those so-called Libyan Rebels we funded and aided in the destruction of Libya (so we could help install the central bankers) were on our top ten terrorist list since 911. Yep. Funny how our leaders DIDN'T round them up but gave them guns and aid instead... but hey, they'll get Snowden.
QUOTE: Both major political parties used the media to build the perception of opposing positions on key issues, while all the while building consensus on issues that were critical to social change. That's verified in the Congressional Record for 1917, which reported that
"...the J.P. Morgan [banking] interests.... and their subsidiary organizations got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press of the US.... They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. ...an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information...."
--Congressman Oscar Callaway statements were included in the Congressional Record (vol. 54, February 9, 1917, p. 2947)
You may have heard of 'The Federalist Papers'? But yeah, not all politicians have been bad guys. However American politics has been freakishly incestuous with blue-blooded Royalty, and simple statistics proves it. In a young country who had a MASSIVE influx of non-blue-blooded industrial seeking population a hundred years ago, with a steady mixed influx sense, we have quite a cozy little community of kissing cousins running things in our nation. Every president we've had except one can trace his bloodlines back to the throne of England through their mother or father or both... and that includes Obama. I thought it was rather hilarious when Cheney claimed in the media he didn't know Obama was his cousin's grandson... he gave Obama's mom a juicy job out of high school, right about the time she was pregnant. Funny how they suddenly didn't know each other... I KNEW. Lol. I love the media blowback control trying to brainwash the masses into accepting the 'political stacking' that has been steadily outed by bloggers... *gushing* "Guess who is RELATED? ISN'T IT A SMALL WORLD?" Hmmm... In a nation THIS NEW pulling its population from the destitute and desperate of the globe... YES. That would be A SMALL WORLD. LOL.
I normally don't comment to comments but this was so funny... I just had to. It took you over 350 words to imply that bloggers are spilling nothing but lies about Obama's Health Care plan that miraculously just popped out of a corpogovt toaster overnight like a sparkly magical pop-tart, and that bloggers are just free-spewing disinformation with no accountability while of course the 'official journalists' who have all been ‘vetted’, are held to a standard, and therefore ‘mostly’ above reproach (even if their nearly illiterate lap dogs, the New Media Monopoly nepotism trumps all and handles the final word of the God-Kings, eh?). I am not entirely convinced you have objectively read an American newspaper in the last twenty years or even in recent years, but if you have that means you are either: 1. A professional liar trying to paint American journalism with an ethical credibility it simply does not have, which in that case you may not even be within our nation’s borders just collecting on our tax-payer dime like so many other corpogovernment outsourced trolls, or 2. Ingratiating yourself to the insider-referral economic fascist club, or 3. An idiot who will believe anything their told by the establishment as long as it doesn't shake the box your living in or interrupt your quality entertainment time… because of course if the corpo-government was lying to you about their motives, or endangering you in any way, they would confess all to you in their ‘legitimate’ incestuous umbrella media… I suppose their collective conscience would make them. Lol. If not... good luck in court. You see, that's why in politics and business smokescreens are useful... but SILENCE IS GOLDEN.
