I’m not in a position to support or disapprove Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign, but he has recently said something that’s one hundred percent correct. He declared:

“Occasionally it might be a good idea to be honest about American foreign policy, and that includes the fact that America has overthrown governments all over the world in Chile and Guatemala in Iran.”

This is a brute historical fact. And if you doubt this, then listen to a leading Neocon theoretician by the name of Micheal Ledeen:

Creative destruction is our middle name, both within our own society and abroad. We tear down the old order every day, from business to science, literature, art, architecture, and cinema to politics and the law. Our enemies have always hated this whirlwind of energy and creativity, which menaces their traditions (whatever they may be) and shames them for their inability to keep pace.”

If you still don’t believe Ledeen, then pick up a copy of Stephen Kinzer’s Overthrow: America’s Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq and All the Shah’s Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East TerrorAll the Shah’s Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East Terror.

If that again is still not sufficient, then here are a small fraction of scholarly studies that have been written over the years:

We all know by now that the United States destroyed Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria for Israel. It is also a historical fact that the warmongers and political whores sent a six-trillion dollar bill to the average American.[1] It is undeniably true that the United States overthrew a democratically elected president in Iran in 1953[2]

Who is still paying the price again? The warmongers? The Israelis? The Neocons? Of course not. The biggest losers in this diabolical world are the average Americans and the war veterans and soldiers whom Henry Kissinger called “stupid animals.”

It was reported that “1 million veterans injured from the fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.”[3] And “Afghanistan and Iraq veterans are ‘the most damaged generation ever.’”[4] There is more:

“More than half of the 2.6 million Americans dispatched to fight the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan struggle with physical or mental health problems stemming from their service, feel disconnected from civilian life and believe the government is failing to meet the needs of this generation’s veterans.”[5]

Obviously America cannot continue to listen to New World Order agents and their lackeys anymore. In order to rehabilitate serious politics and real solutions to America’s perennial problems, the warmongers, the Neocons, and political whores like Trump should not be allowed to have political power over us.

  1. The ‘Land of the Free’ is nothing but the ‘PLANTATION’ of the Zionist Apartheid Theocracy (Talmudic Supremacism) of the Terror State of Israel! Our Political Structure has been corrupted! All 3 Branches of our Government, since the murder of JFK, has morphed into the service, promotion, protection of the Zionist Terror State! Think what transpired on June 8, 1967? On that day the Zionist Terror State attacked our Ship the, “USS LIBERTY” they murdered 34 and wounded 173 of our fellow citizens, Sailors! JFK, the TRAITOR covered that Crime by the Zionists and been ignored ever since! For generations now, our Military has been used, abused as the, ‘ATTACK DOG” for the Zionist causes, interests, The Blood & Treasure of our people has been used as the Sacrificial offerings on the Barbaric-bloody Altar of Zionism on the World Stage! Time to END it!

    • Sorry BIG Mistake on my part, my Blood Presure went sky high, just writing about what is going on in our Land! Not ‘JFK’ -PLease forgive ME?? LBJ, the TRAITOR!!

  2. Yes, Jonas, you are right it is about time for a total regime change to bring back the government of the people, by the people, for the people. Out government and wealth have been hijacked by professional lifetime members of Congress with our executive and legistlative branch bought and sold on the stock exchange.

  3. Quote from Celebrity Net Worth: “There are a lot of strange things about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Drinking coffee and tea – basically any caffeinated beverage – is forbidden. Alcohol is forbidden by the church. R-rated movies and porn are forbidden. Fundamentalist members of LDS have multiple wives. And now, a whistleblower has blown the lid off a doozy of a secret in the Mormon church. A former investment manager filed a complaint with the IRS alleging that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has a tax-exempt fund with $100 billion in it for the second coming of Christ. Okay, then.

    The complaint accuses church leaders of not only misleading members but also breaking federal tax laws by stockpiling their donations instead of using them for charitable works. The complaint was filed by a 41-year-old Mormon named David Neilsen who worked as a senior portfolio manager at the church’s investment division, Ensign Peak Advisors, until September.” Let’s tax all churches and religious institutions. They are business, big business.

    • The late Charlie Angelo Liteky was awarded the Medal of honor for saving over 20 lives in Viet Nam while himself wounded. Years later he realized he had been conned by government liars and returned the Medal by placing it on the wall with a letter to the President. He converted to a Peace Activist and spent two stints in federal prison for demonstrating against the School of the
      Americas in Georgia which promoted criminal activities in South America. He was from Florida. Our government has degenerated to rock bottom today. No one should join the totally corrupt military. We must return to the draft and get the elitist cowards from Yale and Harvard back out on the front lines over there instead of poor folks. Liteky demonstrated real guts and courage with actions not hot air words. Boycott the totally corrupt lying dishonorable U.S. Military today.

  4. I have been led to believe that the damage done to our veterans of the Middle East wars has come from exposure to low levels of radiation from the depleted uranium rounds. Atomized from contact and inhaled and ingested. Am I on to something? I defer to some other expert.

  5. Overthrow the (new)world order? You would have to glass the entire planet. Which is what they want in the first place. Don’t forget these creatures have been at it for over a thousand years. They are well entrenched. They are basically holding the entire human race hostage. What does a cornered bad guy always do? Grab the nearest kid and put a gun to his head, and threaten to kill the innocent if killed. Thus has it always been. So HOW do you stop them without killing every one on the entire planet?

  6. Excellent video.

    I’ve come to appreciate the great wisdom of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment as the foundation of a GREAT USA. It’s the bedrock for a sound, wise, government, committed to the diversity that makes the USA. If we let it slip away, the consequences are catastrophic. Here is a legal definition that I appreciate more and more.

    “The First Amendment’s Establishment Clause prohibits the government from making any law “respecting an establishment of religion.” This clause not only forbids the government from establishing an official religion, but also prohibits government actions that unduly favor one religion over another. It also prohibits the government from unduly preferring religion over non-religion, or non-religion over religion”. —Cornell Law
