    The CIA recently released documents that admitted their complicity in the 1953 conspiracy to depose the democratically elected leader of that country. "Keeping the world safe for 'democracy'" is such a lie when our intelligence arm destroys democracy when it suits them.

    For all you "conspiracy theory"-phobes, this just emphasizes the fact that conspiracies really, really do happen in the real world. Don't be swayed by the Label and don't be so empty-headed as to use that label to attack what you don't understand or haven't thoroughly researched. (And all too frequently, your "thorough" will completely miss the pertinent facts, if you're so biased against them.)

    We already have E. Howard Hunt admitting on his deathbed to his son that he participated in the assassination of JFK. But this is a bit too early. The CIA isn't ready to make that public. Give it another 10 years, maybe?

    And now, surveys in the United States say 9% of Americans are bloodthirsty enough to want war with Syria, but the press says 90%! Typo? Not when you look at the fact that the Corporate Party media propaganda machine is owned by the same people with controlling interests in the Military-Industrial Complex that Eisenhower warned us about.

    And when a powerfully good journalist like Michael Hastings is mysteriously killed in a car crash, the coroner reports drugs had nothing to do with his death, and the Corporate Party media lead with DRUGS in their headlines, you know the press has a habit of being dishonest. A perfect habit? Perhaps not, but too often to allow us the delusion that we have a "free press" anymore.

    Turkish officers found saren gas in the home of a rebel in Syria, but the Corporate Party media wants us to believe that Assad is the one using poisonous gas on his people. Lies help to stir the war frenzy. American government has lots of practice using False Flags and the Problem-Reaction-Solution paradigm. That the American military would even consider Operation Northwoods, (False Flag operation against Cuba) by Chief of Staff Lemnitzer in 1962, only shows how corrupt our military and government can be.

    Perhaps the biggest stories are not even being covered -- but covered up.

    The government is spending money like mad men -- over spending. Accelerating the National Debt toward a Bubble Burst the likes of which has not been seen in the history of humanity. Before 9/11, under Bush, the National Debt was an outrageous 5 Trillion. After Bush's 8-year term, the debt had soared to $10 Trillion. In Obama's first 4 years, the debt skyrocketed to $16.7 Trillion -- ACCELERATING! When that bubble goes, Earth will be financial toast, and America will be ground zero. Nearly every currency on the planet is tied to the dollar. When that becomes worthless, everyone will be hurt.

    But why would they be doing this? It's almost as if someone doesn't like America and wants it out of the way. And they're doing an excellent job of it. Could there be greedy psychopaths in the world? Does such an animal exist? What if psychopaths, with smiles on one side of their face and lies on the other, got into positions of great wealth and power -- enough to buy presidents and entire legislative branches? What if the squabbles were all smokescreen and the real agenda was something that all paid-off politicians agreed on?

    The Constitution is in tatters, first amendment under assault, fourth amendment practically gone, second amendment being called "obsolete" while news today shows that American citizens are increasingly being shot on their own property by police for no crime at all. … wn-garage/ … car-thief/

    Perhaps the most disheartening story is the 9/11 cover-up. This event is still important, because it is still a raging fire! Wars continue to be started because of it. Millions continue to die because of it. In the name of 9/11, legislation continues to be written, destroying the foundation of America -- its Constitution. Bush called it a "damn piece of paper." I guess he forgot his Oath of Office. Obama treats it as an impediment. He'd rather make up his own rules and lie about it all.

    What's sad about it is that so many Americans believe the 9/11 lie. (I did for 10 years.) Even some otherwise very intelligent Americans go completely stupid in defense of the lie. Take the collapse of WTC7, for instance. That was the 3rd building to collapse on 9/11 from controlled demolition. The Bush administration pushed its own conspiracy theory and the media treated it as fact. But no airplane hit WTC7. NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) scientists say that it collapsed due to office fires. They say it with a straight face, but their report contains obvious fabrications and downright fraud (drylabbing).

    Fact: Office fires never get hot enough to melt steel.
    Fact: WTC7 fell at perfect free fall acceleration for 8 floors (see David Chandler videos for the proof; but also NIST finally admitted to this free fall in their report).
    Fact: Solid steel never, ever offers ZERO resistance to the structure above, but this is the "cartoon" logic being pushed by NIST.

    Why would government scientists push a lie and completely ignore the profound implications of perfect free fall?

    Why would Mayor Giuliani, a former federal prosecutor who knew better, commit a major felony in the destruction of crime scene evidence (9/11 ground zero) by cleaning up the largest crime scene in American history over a year before the official investigation could begin? If you've ever watched CSI, you know that the crime scene should not be touched until the investigators are done with it. Duh! Was Giuliani just being stupid when he broke the law, or was he helping in the government cover-up?

    Why would Bush drag his feet on starting the 9/11 official investigation, only implementing it (under-funded) after the surviving family members created a big enough stink?

    Why would the top military officers responsible for the massive security failures on 9/11 all get promotions instead of courts martial for their incredible incompetence (or complicity)?

    Why, indeed! Cover up? Incompetence? Halliburton, Lockheed Martin and dozens of other companies are quite happy with the result -- a never-ending War on Terror with mounting profits.

    Some who cast about the "conspiracy theory" label (even onto dry facts) claim that someone would've talked. Yes, they did! Some of them were killed. Some of them were thrown in jail (Patriot Act). We have plenty of whistleblowers on record and people who saw suspicious activity in the days leading up to 9/11, but the Military-Industrial Corporate Party media newspapers, magazines and TV won't tell us stuff that threatens their cushy new cash cow -- a War on Terror that can never be called "over" -- perpetual murder and theft.

    America -- the New Evil Empire. Makes me sick to my stomach.

    Like Ben Franklin said, any person who gives up liberty for a little security will neither get nor deserve either of them. America, land of the free and home of the brave? After 9/11, it looks more like land of the safe slave and home of the coward hiding behind the unpatriotic Patriot Act and similarly Orwellian legislation.

      Even if somebody would systematically dispute your claims the American public is loathe to venture into the unpleasant business of dissecting the facts. Armed with media "facts" that taint the truth the general public is too caught up in the survival mode of living in this economy of dwindling wages and benefits let alone the unspeakable inflation that is creeping into our lives. I think these things keep us from caring too heavily about the business of the political treachery that is run by corporate America. If America, "US", cared we would investigate and vote the slime out of congress. But the news feed for tomorrow will not include the investigative depth nor the content that can take our attention away from the frilly stories of Miley Cyrus' latest titillating gestures or the net worth of Madonna.

      Term Limits, Publicly Funded Elections and Lobby Reform are our only hope for a road back to our freedoms.

        Publicly funded elections . . . I guess you don't feel like we have enough conflict of interest as it is.

          How could there be a conflict of interest if election funding was equally dispersed by petition numbers and not subject to special interest manipulation? The purpose of this type of change would eliminate the lobby controlled congressional decision making, or, at least greatly curb its corruption.

      That's old news. Same for coup in Chile fomented by CIA with help from International Telephone and Telegraph and efforts to assassinate Fidel Castro and many other black ops.

    I don't need them to admit. It is common knowledge. Philip Agee, former agent, in the seventies denounced their unethical actions.
