In 1954 CIA Director Allen Dulles rescued BP by launching Operation Ajax against Iran’s democratically-elected Mohamed Mossadegh. That same year Dulles came to the aid of United Fruit Company in Guatemala, where nationalist Jacobo Arbenz was elected President on a platform promising land reform.
When Arbenz targeted United Fruit’s 550,000 acre banana plantations for expropriation, Dulles turned to his old employer Sullivan & Cromwell to plot the overthrow of Arbenz.
Sullivan was BP’s lawyer and legal counsel to J. Henry Schroeder Bank, the Warburg-controlled Hamburg bank that financed Adolf Hitler. 
Dallas oil king Clint Murchison bought two paper mills in Honduras in 1954 from Bush golfing buddy Walt Mischer. Both had ties to the Marcello mob family in New Orleans. Kennedy assassin/Watergate plumber Howard Hunt, with help from Nicaraguan dictator Somoza, trained a Honduran-based militia to attack Arbenz. Frank Wisner, CIA Deputy Director of Plans, oversaw the operation. Continue reading
President Obama’s 2012 State of the Union address was geared towards refuting Republican claims that he is some kind of “European socialist” hostile to the “free market”. Had they the capacity to utilize facts in their purely ideological narrative, the Grand Old Party of doom & gloom would have realized that nearly all European countries have been under conservative control for the past decade – their collective supply-side economics experiment now teetering on the brink of another financial meltdown akin to what decades of Reagan/Bush policies brought the US in 2008.
Of particular interest were Obama’s remarks on energy, as he laid to rest the 2,000 job, no oil for the US, Keystone Pipeline fiasco by citing increased US oil exploration, integral government-funded natural gas extraction research and the need for clean energy. Continue reading
Several Occupy Wall Street splinter groups are now coalescing around a set of political demands. One that is long overdue and enjoys unanimous support is campaign finance reform. All the formulas that I have seen center on publicly funded elections. While this would be a huge step in the right direction, I would like to propose a very simple and more radical idea which would truly be a campaign finance revolution.
American elections in their current form constitute nothing less than an auction, where billionaire banksters use a variety of corporate and PAC fronts to appoint the person they believe will be most subservient to their agenda.
In nearly every election at every level the candidate who raises the most money wins. Period. Why bother allowing people to even vote? Simply crown the candidate who raises the most money victor and drop the pretense that democracy exists in America. The voting process simply legitimizes the fraud. Continue reading

In 1979, as Iranian revolutionaries were taking charge in Tehran, Carter National Security Adviser, Afghan Frankenstein godfather and Trilateral Commission co-founder Zbigniew Brzezinski was in Kuwait City meeting with Kuwaiti Emir Sheik Jaber Ahmed al Sabah, House of Saud envoys and Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. The group decided that Saddam’s Republican Guard would seize the oil-rich Iranian province of Khuzistan.
In 1980 Iraq invaded Iran. That same year Kuwait’s Ambassador to the UN shed light on the forces which used Brzezinski to goad Hussein into his attempt to partition Iran’s oilfields. He informed the UN General Assembly of, “a cabal which controls, manipulates and exploits the rest of humanity by controlling the money and wealth of the world”. Continue reading
Ten years ago this blog would not have succeeded. People were living in fear and being devastated by the Eight Families banking monopoly and their corporate arsenal. Now here we are in the year 2012. So what’s next?
The end of the Mayan calendar on December 21st of this year, in tandem with other historical anomalies, has many believing that the end of this year may bring untold cataclysm. Continue reading
