If you knew for certain something was a lie, would you still believe it was a truth?
It appears that the biggest fraud and deception the world has ever witnessed has its “modern” foundation with the “Robber Barons” of the late 1800s. It seemed to briefly fade from public view for a while following Teddy Roosevelt’s “trust busting” efforts and then reemerged, exponentially empowered, from the ashes of WWII.
The super-wealthy Robber Baron progeny, better labeled American Fascists, fronted by the private bankers of Brown Brothers Harriman & Co. and the lawyers of Sullivan & Cromwell, financed and supported Adolph Hitler and the Nazi party during the 1930s, and along the way, attempted a coup d’état against President Franklin in 1933.
Toward the end of WWII, our U.S. war-time spy operation, the OSS and various military intelligence operations (soon to become the NSA, CIA, etc., the multiple “modern” U.S. intelligence agencies) discovered some of the hordes of Nazi and Japanese plunder. “Agents” stumbled upon trillions of dollars in gold, silver, precious jewels, platinum, art, and more, which the Nazis and the Japanese had plundered from the people of Europe, Russia, China and South East Asia.
What did our government decide to do with the trillions… create some system to give it back to the people (the innocent victims of atrocious atrocities) of the formerly conquered lands?
No, they did not.
Instead, our leaders used the plunder to fund the black ops, murder, destabilization and disinformation programs which literally created the world we live in today.
By putting the plunder into the hands of the same-old-same-old pre-WWII Brown Brothers Harriman & Co., Sullivan & Cromwell, Dulles brothers plutocracy which funded the Nazi and the U.S. corporate hegemony in South America, the Caribbean, the Pacific and elsewhere throughout the world, they expanded, reenergized and empowered the “modern” descendants of the Robber Barons of the late 1800s and early 1900s.
I know. You and I thought the Robber Barons were in the past. Teddy Roosevelt and others had seen to that by ending the monopolies and equalizing the “playing fields”.
Unfortunately, we have been living a dream. The Robber Barons of old are still with us. Today their descendants, fueled in no small part by the trillions of WWII plunder, have become the trans-national corporate capitalist elite operating global corporations under a multitude of names. And yes, they are clearly still in control, foisting their demented, perverted and distorted view of existence.
Now, after more than 100 years, the results of their mastery are also clear… millions of deaths, trillions in pilfered wealth, squalor, starvation, torture, the destruction of our environment, and trans-natinal Fascism.
The result of the Mother of All Deceptions is the horrendous nightmare we have lived until today.
Now we know. Now we can do something to change our world for the better.
