Hello, the repetition of saving Democracy,daily work etc. USA, is not a Democracy, it is a Constitutional Republic, big difference. Conspiracy secret society, of the Masonic Kind Starts with Washington, Adams, Franklin etc. Self inflicted wounds to further a hidden agenda is the HISTORY of the USA. Public deception, perception management good old brainwashing is the Christian BLIND FAITH country. Democrats and republicans is a division of distraction, there is a larger more powerfull International group that spends 100million to have the first half breed white and black, seems we only talk to his black side or back side, but never his white half. Half breed like the word Gay became distorted, negative and a form of fear. Joe Kennedy started selling Canadian booze, during prohibition, later became a weapons sales and wanted to get rich from Vietnam, 1962, then another self inflicted wound and full blown war. America famous for friendly fire, it still kills, inside job, willing to wound itself to get into battles and justify the money made from war. You spend money on war until you make money on war. Sometimes nations are shaped by their enemies, the USA is shaped by self inflicted or attracted wounds/self sabotage an American lifestyle...I THOUGHT I WAS LOST< NOW IM just blind.
David Talbot's theory on the JFK assination is affirmed by this incredible footage:
The video shows the secret service agent riding on the rear right side of JFK's limo being called off from his assignment as the motorcade starts. The agent is in disbelief by the order because it leaves the president wide open. Indeed, had the secret service agent stayed there like protocol called for he would have been in direct obstruction when Lee Harvey Oswald took his shot.
As far as why Kennedy was shot is a mystery. Who benefitted? How did it benefit you? Don't we need a martyr, a greek tragedy, a disastrous event to change the course of our lives?
David Talbot Interview seems a bit to slanted at doing the exact same thing as what they are criticizing Governor Palin about. The reality of Obama being a dangerous candidate is not a fiction but fact. I expect the fact that the liberals had sent a team of lawyers to Alaska to template the moray system of Washington against what works in the state of Alaska. This state does not fit this template, for they have had to adapt in transformation over the past 40 years to become super capitalists from frontier basics. This CYA from the DMC seems to be lacking in the common sense to real logic. Having to hold a candle for light to the hurricane of fear from Washington is a daunting task. Let us keep into view that fact that politicians are by there own nature lacking in total support from all of there constitutes. In fact they do not always serve the function of being the steward of there respective states. Bringing the focus threw a prism where there are so many vantage points yields conflict. Religion has always been the lightning rod of controversy. Understanding the higher order of things dose not imply the correct and just compromise of life daily challenges. It is one thing to have understanding, but used condescendingly is like no understanding of the issue. Though this interview is thought provoking it dose exude burden of being out of balance.
