Philosophy 101 vs General Mad Dog's Opening Statement to the Department of Defense.
I can't help but hope that General Mad Dog is smarter than is reflected in his introductory statement to the Department of Defense. Here is the statement:
" It’s good to be back and I’m grateful to serve alongside you as Secretary of Defense.
" Together with the Intelligence Community we are the sentinels and guardians of our nation. We need only look to you, the uniformed and civilian members of the Department and your families, to see the fundamental unity of our country. You represent an America committed to the common good; an America that is never complacent about defending its freedoms; and an America that remains a steady beacon of hope for all mankind.
" Every action we take will be designed to ensure our military is ready to fight today and in the future. Recognizing that no nation is secure without friends, we will work with the State Department to strengthen our alliances. Further, we are devoted to gaining full value from every taxpayer dollar spent on defense, thereby earning the trust of Congress and the American people.
" I am confident you will do your part. I pledge to you I’ll do my best as your Secretary"
Now the only thought to which I take exception is the mythology that the U.S. Intelligence establishment is about "protecting us, the American People." That, at best, is a half-truth, and frankly, I believe mostly a LIE.
The CIA has NEVER been about protecting the American People but rather acting as the Secret Police, the Gestapo, as it were, for the Globalist (New World Order ) Corporatist Interests of International Capitalism. This was easily hidden from the American people for the decades of the Cold War when the MIND WAR people had us convinced that the Cold War struggle was between Godless Communism and Godly Capitalism.
Please understand that International Capitalism and American Free Enterprise are NOT Synonymous. American Free Enterprise flourishes only when protected from International Capitalism, (IC) Dealing with IC, but not CONTROLLED by it. Today the American Economy is TOTALLY in the control of IC. The Federal Reserve Bank (The Fed) which is not federal and holds no reserves, is the mechanism of IC control over the Western Economies, most directly the American economy. The Fed sniffles, the American Economy sneezes. The Fed shivers, the American Economy goes into grand mal seizure. International Capital took control of the U.S. in 1913, and by 1929 had destroyed a large portion of American Free Enterprise. It has CONTROLLED American Free Enterprise ever since, stifling new marketable technologies, by the DOD and CIA, under the guise of "National Security." When in fact, the real reason for the suppression was to protect the status quo, with the IC Globalist Grand Masters on Top.
That mental frame for the Cold War was a LIE since history has exposed that the GODLESS Capitalist were, in fact, Luciferians and financed both Western Capitalism, Hitler and Nazism, and the Bolshevik Revolution, supporting the murderous Communist regime of the Soviet Union. If you doubt this, research Anthony Sutton, the greatest historian of the 20th Century. This information is public record. These Grand Masters, for whom the CIA was/is their Gestapo, controlled it all.
So NO General Mattis, a great portion of the Intelligence Establishment has nothing to do with protecting the American People, but is a mechanism to CONTROL THEM, to act as the Gestapo for the IC Masters.
The history of the CIA is clear, but also the NSA has been subverted as a Mind War mechanism, gathering data on everyone, using sophisticated brainwashing techniques to HERD us. WE THE PEOPLE CONTROL the Government, or at least that was the Mythology. The PEOPLE cannot control government while being herded by it. Surely you see that has to be the case, Philosophy 101, The Law of Non-Contradiction.
