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."

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.

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.

By Stephen Lendman | Global Research, September 01, 2014 On August 31, Israel’s Civil Administration announced confiscation of around 1,000 acres of privately owned Palestinian land.
