When corporations control the government, there is no difference between socialism and fascism.
Here’s the news feed I was seeing at the time TWA800 was shot down by a navy missile:
There is nothing that the media won’t lie about, no major event in recent memory that is not encrusted in lies.
Warmongers Are Anti-American
Adam Smith – the father of free market capitalism – wrote a scathing critique on warmongers in the Wealth of Nations 235 years ago:
In great empires the people who live in the capital, and in the provinces remote from the scene of action, feel, many of them, scarce any inconveniency from the war; but enjoy, at their ease, the amusement of reading in the newspapers the exploits of their own fleets and armies. To them this amusement compensates the small difference between the taxes which they pay on account of the war, and those which they had been accustomed to pay in time of peace. They are commonly dissatisfied with the return of peace, which puts an end to their amusement, and to a thousand visionary hopes of conquest and national glory from a longer continuance of the war.
Numerous economists have documented that war is horrible for the economy.
The Father of the Constitution – James Madison – wrote:
Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds, are added to those of subduing the force, of the people. The same malignant aspect in republicanism may be traced in the inequality of fortunes, and the opportunities of fraud, growing out of a state of war, and in the degeneracy of manners and of morals engendered by both. No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.
Many other Founding Fathers warned against warmongering, as well:
Thomas Paine is generally credited with instilling the first non-interventionist ideas into the American body politic; his work Common Sense contains many arguments in favor of avoiding alliances. These ideas introduced by Paine took such a firm foothold that the Second Continental Congress struggled against forming an alliance with France and only agreed to do so when it was apparent that the American Revolutionary War could be won in no other manner.
George Washington’s farewell address is often cited as laying the foundation for a tradition of American non-interventionism:
The great rule of conduct for us, in regard to foreign nations, is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible. Europe has a set of primary interests, which to us have none, or a very remote relation. Hence she must be engaged in frequent controversies the causes of which are essentially foreign to our concerns. Hence, therefore, it must be unwise in us to implicate ourselves, by artificial ties, in the ordinary vicissitudes of her politics, or the ordinary combinations and collisions of her friendships or enmities.
John Adams followed George Washington’s ideas about non-interventionism by avoiding a very realistic possibility of war with France.
President Thomas Jefferson extended Washington’s ideas in his March 4, 1801 inaugural address: “peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none.” …
In 1823, President James Monroe articulated what would come to be known as the Monroe Doctrine, which some have interpreted as non-interventionist in intent: “In the wars of the European powers, in matters relating to themselves, we have never taken part, nor does it comport with our policy, so to do. It is only when our rights are invaded, or seriously menaced that we resent injuries, or make preparations for our defense.”
Adam Smith and Thomas Jefferson also said that – if we do need to fight a war for defensive purposes – it should be paid for now, and not placed on the shoulders of future generations.
Postscript: While many civilians believe the myth that conservatives are pro-war, the truth is that many of the most highly-decorated military men in history – including conservatives – became opposed to war after seeing what really goes on. See this, this and this.
Indeed, I have spoken with some very high-level former military and intelligence officers. They are true patriots, who dedicated their life to protecting our country. They are also very passionate about not starting unnecessary wars, because they reduce America’s national security and cause many more problems than they could possibly solve.
Those who call themselves “conservative” – but advocate military adventurism – are not really conservative at all.
Nor are they progressive. Both parties speak for the satanists behind the scenes. The US has ebola and is bleeding from every orifice. The source of the infection is the foreign and bankster funded vandals in washington.
We reported in April 2012 that leading Chinese economic analyst (and American ex-pat) professor Michael Pettis argued in 2011 that China’s GDP might already higher than America’s in terms of purchasing power parity.
And we noted that Arvind Subramanian – former assistant director in the Research Department of the International Monetary Fund, and now senior fellow jointly at the Peterson Institute for International Economics – says that China passed up the USA in 2010.
Financial Times reported in April:
The US is on the brink of losing its status as the world’s largest economy, and is likely to slip behind China this year, sooner than widely anticipated, according to the world’s leading statistical agencies.
Now, it’s official …
As Huffington Post notes:
China’s gross domestic product is worth $17.6 trillion, adjusted for China’s relatively low cost of living, compared with $17.4 trillion for the U.S., the International Monetary Fund estimated as part of its latest World Economic Outlook. …
Everyone’s seen the stories …
Ebola has become an epidemic in Liberia and Sierra Leone because those West African countries don’t have the resources to cope with the disaster. This is largely true because both countries have been torn apart by war.
Wikipedia notes regarding Liberia … the epicenter of the Ebola crisis:
Under Taylor’s leadership, Liberia became internationally known as a pariah state due to the use of blood diamonds and illegal timber exports to fund the Revolutionary United Front in the Sierra Leone Civil War.
The Liberian economy began a steady decline due to economic mismanagement following the 1980 coup. This decline was accelerated by the outbreak of civil war in 1989; GDP was reduced by an estimated 90% between 1989 and 1995, one of the fastest declines in history.
Civil war strife ended in 2003 after destroying approximately 95% of the country’s healthcare facilities. In 2009, government expenditure on health care per capita was US$22, accounting for 10.6% of total GDP. In 2008, Liberia had only 1 doctor and 27 nurses per 100,000 people.
As to Sierra Leone, Wikipedia points out:
Government corruption and mismanagement of the country’s natural resources contributed to the Sierra Leone Civil War (1991 to 2002), which over more than a decade devastated the country. It left more than 50,000 people dead, much of the country’s infrastructure destroyed, and over two million people displaced as refugees in neighbouring countries.
But what most Westerners don’t know is that our governments are partly responsible for the war that ravaged those countries’ healthcare infrastructure. …
Can there be more compelling evidence of satanic influences in washington than a deliberate effort to suppress groundbreaking knowledge that would liberate american children from suffering and abuse? There wasn’t even a profit incentive to do so, it was sheer unadulterated sadistic cruelty. But of course the real reason to destroy children’s lives is to make way for the robber baron’s “new world order” by ripping the fabric of society apart.
We are a Violent Nation. Congress created the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) on October 17,1962 with enactment of PL 87-838 to “conduct and support of research and training relating to maternal health, child health, and human development, including research and training in the special health problems and requirements of mothers and children…”(Sec 441).
It is universally recognized that “child abuse and neglect” is a “special health problem of mothers and children.”
The letter of 15 September 2014 to Vice President Biden and Senators Carper and Coon provide:
- A chronology of research activities on child abuse and neglect;
- The Directive of Secretary Weinberger to federal agencies to implement these policies;
- The ultimate betrayal and abandonment of this Congressional and DHEW Secretarial Directives by the NICHD;
- The efforts by Health Scientist Administrator Dr. Prescott, over the past some forty years, to comply with these Directives;
- His unlawful termination for defense of these Congressionally mandated programs;
- And his efforts that continue to this day to hold accountable the NICHD/NIH accountable the violations of Public Law that has propelled this Nation into a death spiral of violence.
The psychopathology of early life experiences initiate the pathology of brain-behavioral disorders that last a lifetime, many, of which, are noted in my letter to VP Biden.
Specifically terminated NICHD programs established:
1. Cerebellar brain damage in adult pathologically violent primates deprived of mother love. https://vimeo.com/71761209 2 Min
2. Abnormal electrical discharges, called “spiking” in the Septum–a subcortical emotional brain structure known to mediate violent behavior in mother deprived primates. http://www.violence.de/heath/bfm/article.html
What NICHD research programs have evaluated cerebellar and Septal brain damage in depressed / violent abused and neglected children and adults?
The above facts and questions must be addressed by Dr. Collins, Director, NIH.
The abandoned research on child abuse and neglect by the NICHD has prevented an answer to these questions that should have been answered generations ago.
The failure of Culture to support Women, as Nurturing Mothers, is the principal cause of a Culture of Violence that threatens human survival.
- THE CHILD IS THE FATHER OF THE MAN
- THE CHILD IS THE MOTHER OF CULTURE
- THE CHILD IS THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY
On this 52nd year after the birth of the NICHD, I am calling for all Citizens to write their Congressional Representatives to take corrective actions of this betrayal and abandonment of Mother, Children and the Family—the future of HUMAN Civilization– by the NICHD / NIH.
James W. Prescott, Ph.D.
