and ….. JFK in his own words !
In a speech to the Newspaper Publishers Association in 1961, President Kennedy said:
“No president should fear public scrutiny of his program, for from that scrutiny comes understanding, and from that understanding comes support or opposition; and both are necessary. . . . Without debate, without criticism, no administration and no country can succeed, and no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian law makers once decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the First Amendment.”
Abraham Lincoln said, just before his assassination:
I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country...Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money-power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed."

Průhlednou šmíru předvedla americká média předstíráním svého rozhořčeného údivu nad simulovaným útokem ruských stíhaček na americkou loď Donald Cook. Podrobně přitom popisovala, kolikrát a v jaké výšce ruské stíhačky nad Donaldem Cookem přeletěly, ale o tom, jakým typem lodí Donald Cook je a kde se v okamžiku incidentu nalézal, neutrousila ani zmínku. A o to […]
Libye vlastní skoro 40 % africké ropy, ceněné pro svoji vysokou kvalitu a nízké těžební náklady, a také velké zásoby přírodního plynu.

Podpisem dohody s Tureckem o zpomalení přílivu uprchlíků – což je podle mezinárodního práva ilegální – učinili vůdci Evropy další krok k paktu s ďáblem. Velká část z 3 miliard euro ročně poskytovaných Ankaře bude sloužit jako finanční podpora džihádistům a v důsledku toho se zvýší počet přistěhovalců, kteří utíkají před válkou. Zrušením vízové povinnosti s T […]
Zatímco Západ vyvíjel tlak na Írán, aby se vzdal svého civilního jaderného programu, tak mezitím Saúdové koupili atomovou bombu od Izraele nebo Pákistánu. Od té chvíle se Blízký východ stal k překvapení všech jadernou zónou, jíž dominuje Izrael a Saúdská Arábie.
Rusko zpochybnilo budoucnost Turecka, když doručilo Radě bezpečnosti zprávu od zpravodajské služby o poznatcích, týkajících se činnosti Turecka na podporu džihádistů.

Na rozdíl od zdání nemá rozhodnutí Spojených států vyšetřovat možnou ruskou pomoc proti-evropským stranám chránit Evropany před zahraničním zasahováním. Právě naopak. Po 70 let Washington řídí západoevropskou politiku a zakazuje všechny formy skutečné demokracie.
