Revisiting history: Did Jack Ruby predict the America of today?

 by Dustin Pardue - Examiner.com

 

 ”I tell you that a whole new form of government is going to take over the country and I know I won’t live to see you another time.”–Jack Ruby

Jack Ruby, the man who shot accused assassin of President John F. Kennedy Lee Harvey Oswald, said in his interview with the Warren Commission (the investigative team appointed by the federal government to probe the Kennedy assassination) on June 7th, 1964:“Everything pertaining to what’s happening has never come to the surface. The world will never know the true facts of what occurred or my motives. The people that had so much to gain and had such an ulterior motive for putting me in the position I’m in will never let the true facts come above board to the world. Gentlemen, I want to tell you the truth, but I cannot tell it here. If you want a fair shake out of me you have to take me to Washington. I tell you that a whole new form of government is going to take over the country and I know I won’t live to see you another time.”

Nearly half a century later, these words continue to haunt the United States and continue to raise questions. Were they simply the musings of a grief-stricken raving lunatic, or were they the words of a man ready to blow the whistle that was following orders and not there by happenstance? The words themselves, especially his quote regarding ‘a new form of government’ still to this day sounds a little far out there. But when really thinking about it and analyzing other similar quotes from the time and looking at U.S. politics and policy, both foreign and domestic, since that time, one can see that Jack Ruby’s testimony to the Warren Commission may not have been ‘out there’ at all. A strong case can be made that he actually knew a great deal more than history has led us to believe and that he was trying to genuinely warn this country about the events that had just transpired and what they were going to mean to the future of this nation.

Were there any other notable contemporaries in the late 1950s and early 1960s in America saying similar things to what Jack Ruby said in his interview with the Warren Commission? Surprisingly there actually were.

In 1960, President Dwight Eisenhower gave an eloquent address to the nation which included the following statement: “Until the latest of our world conflicts, the United States had no armaments industry. American makers of plowshares could, with time and as required, make swords as well. But now we can no longer risk emergency improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. Added to this, three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defense establishment. We annually spend on military security more than the net income of all United States corporations.

This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, even spiritual — is felt in every city, every State house, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. 

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.”

In April of 1961, President John Kennedy said in a speech to the American Newspaper Publishers Association: “For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.

Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed. It conducts the Cold War; in short, with a war-time discipline no democracy would ever hope or wish to match. The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.”

On December 21st, 1963, former president Harry Truman said in The Washington Post: “For some time I have been disturbed by the way the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) has been diverted from its original assignment. It has become an operational and at time a policy-making arm of the government. I never had any thought that when I set up the CIA that it would be injected into peacetime cloak-and-dagger operations.”

Something is wrong in Washington

These are all very alarming statements uttered from a few guys who are more ‘in the know’ than your average John Q. Citizen. Their statements aren’t as black and white as that of Jack Ruby, but reading them, hearing them, and objectively interpreting them can lead one to believe there was something very wrong in Washington, DC during this time. So the questions remain. Were all of these people trying to warn us and tell us something? Or, is it also possible that these are just four misinterpreted statements from four different people about four different things? Depending on whom one asks, there is a wide range of answers from people. Some have even gone as far as making up speeches by John Kennedy such as the hoaxed Columbia University speech in 1963, as well as the ‘enslaving’ quote uttered supposedly seven days before his assassination in Dallas, TX, all to support their answers to these questions. (Sorry to disappoint all of you Illuminati believers out there, but John Kennedy simply never said those things) The essential reality is this:1) There were some groundbreaking things happening in the political structure of the United States after World War II; 2) The economic, foreign policy decisions, and attitude toward the Soviet Union of John Kennedy were incomprehensible to some people; 3) The United States dramatically changed its policies after the assassination of John Kennedy. All of these are still evident today in 2013.

President Franklin Roosevelt, or as modern day conservatives like to call him, Satan himself, did some pretty good things other than guiding our country through World War II. The New Deal was a series of government-sponsored programs to not only ensure that the Great Depression didn’t repeat itself, but also establish social programs in the United States, such as the Social Security Act and the Works Progress Administration Act, to help build a middle class. As part of the New Deal, The Glass-Steagall Act, a term often applied to the entire Banking Act of 1933, prohibited deposit banks from merging or behaving as a securities bank (separating the gamblers from the rest of the world). Combine the New Deal with the virtual obliteration of America’s manufacturing competition worldwide (Germany and Japan in ruins) after World War II, and the United States created the greatest economy the world had ever seen that would sustain itself for the next six decades. President Kennedy even began to print money that wasn’t debt-based, cutting the Federal Reserve out of the loop. When was the last time we saw money that said “United States Note” at the top and not “Federal Reserve Note?” The answer: 1963.

By backpedaling on agreements and relations between Roosevelt and Stalin toward the end of World War II, President Truman unnecessarily escalated what would become the Cold War. President Eisenhower at times followed the same precedent after the death of Stalin in 1953 when Nikita Khrushchev came to power in the Soviet Union. It was the peace-minded relationship and empathy between Kennedy and Khrushchev in the early 1960s that began to correct the course after the Cuban Missile Crisis in October of 1962. Both of these men understood the similarities of each country’s place in the world and began dialog that was geared toward cooperation in space exploration and scaling down production and placement of nuclear weapons. Both men understood what it was going to take for both countries to exist under their own separate ideals and flourish on their own with a sense of their own respective security. John Kennedy recognized the enormous sacrifice made by the Soviet Union to defeat the Nazi regime in Germany. The Soviet Union truly did bear the greatest burden and suffered exponentially the greatest loss of life during the Second World War. John Kennedy said that “war will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does today.”

Did the United States change?

So did the United States change after 1963 like Jack Ruby said it would? Was anything different? A case could be made for a ‘yes’ answer to those questions. Post World War II, the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union escalated due to NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization). NATO was formed in 1949 as an inter-governmental military alliance that began a system of collective defense where its members agreed to mutual defense in response to a military attack by a non-member government. The Soviet Union was primarily concerned with protecting its western borders with the rest of Europe. The United States, time and time again in the 1950s, attempted to expand NATO participating countries in Europe, particularly in Eastern Europe, by adding Greece, Turkey, and West Germany. The Soviet Union saw this as a threat to their western borders and feared for their security. American nuclear weapons in Turkey led to Soviet retaliation by placing nuclear weapons in Cuba, culminating in the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962, which was the closest the world has ever come to nuclear war. (The Cuban Missile Crisis transpired in October of 1962 when American spy planes over Cuba photographed Soviet offensive nuclear weapons 90 miles from U.S. soil; with more on the way by ship.) Kennedy and Krushchev, although not completely trusting each other 100%, began communicating and trying to work together after that time.

Conservative America saw this as John Kennedy being a communist appeaser and showing signs of surrender and weakness. Furthermore, by the early 1960s, the U.S. had deployed increasing numbers of troops to South Vietnam (also known at the time as French Indochina) to assist the French, because there was a fear of communism spreading to that area. Kennedy further exacerbated populace fears of his communist sympathies by putting a plan in place to progressively and completely withdraw American troops from Vietnam In October of 1963 (a month before his death) known as National Security Act Memorandum 263 (NSAM 263), an executive order intended to extract 1,000 U.S. troops by the end of 1963 and all of them by 1965. In complete contradiction to Kennedy’s executive order, on November 26th, 1963 (the day after the burial of John F. Kennedy), President Lyndon Johnson reversed NSAM 263. Instead of pulling out of Vietnam, American involvement escalated. The Gulf of Tonkin Incident, a false flag terror attack that never actually happened, gave President Johnson the push he needed to launch an all-out Congress-sponsored American declaration of war on North Vietnam. (In all fairness to President Johnson, great accomplishments such as the Civil Rights Act and Medicare came from his Presidency.)

False-flag terror attacks have been used throughout history to push political agendas and gain power from ancient Rome (when Emperor Nero burned down the city so he could roast Christians), to Nazi Germany (the burning down of the Reichstag which catapulted Hitler to power), to the United States of America (the Gulf of Tonkin incident which led to an official declaration of war in Vietnam).

The dissent amongst the population of the American people toward the war in Vietnam was unprecedented. Public figures that rocked the boat and/or disturbed the ‘political machine’ were coincidentally found murdered. 1968 Presidential candidate Robert Francis Kennedy, who was critical of the Vietnam War, was assassinated under peculiar circumstances in the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, CA during his campaign. Civil Rights leader and peace activist Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated in Memphis, TN under an even stranger set of circumstances. (The inner workings of those events are a different story for a different time.) If there were any rock-solid proof rather than circumstantial evidence and coincidences regarding those two cases, they could go a long way to back up Jack Ruby’s story. However, without hard data and physical evidence regarding these two assassinations as well as the named assassins (Sirhan Sirhan and James Earl Ray) it would be unfair to categorize these two events as anything other than examples of the level of humanity at some of its most extreme, the social and political turmoil of the late 1960s, and the great loss to the world without these two men in it.

Nixon and his “dirty tricks”

Contrary to popular belief, the Presidency of Richard M. Nixon wasn’t the disaster of the millennium. Along with Vietnam, which Nixon escalated almost to ‘madman’ lengths, healthcare was a major issue. A universal health care plan was proposed and shot down. A lesser mandate was passed which included a private health insurance mandate for employers and the federalization of Medicaid for the poor with dependent children. (Sound familiar?) Nixon also broke through the barrier for a relationship with China. This one event also put a lot of pressure on the Soviet Union to continue a road to peace with the United States. The pressure came from the fear of an alliance between the United States and China and culminated in the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty between the United States and Soviet Union in 1972 which limited the use of anti-ballistic missile systems used in defending areas against missile-delivered nuclear weapons. (The United States pulled out of this treaty in 2002 concerned by its own security after 9/11).

Nixon played dirty politics, yet accomplished a great deal. With the radicalization of the modern Republican Party over the past 15 years, Richard Nixon would be seen as a left-wing radical from today’s conservative standards. His resignation, which was his only choice if we wanted to protect his White House recordings (including the 18-minute gap after the Bay of Pigs invasion of 1961 under President Kennedy was being discussed), left the American people’s confidence in the federal government in shambles.

The Nixon, Ford, and Carter Presidencies don’t seem much like what Jack Ruby had said. It didn’t seem like a new form of government had taken over the United States with a coup d’etat. It appeared to be more like a young country struggling with its position as the newly elected superpower of the world after World War II.

The New Style of the 1980s

It is not until the 1980s and after, with the massive stockpiling of arms, dismantling of the New Deal, and manipulation of foreign governments through assassination, insurgency support, and cold hard cash that one can begin to clearly see the direction of the supposed ‘new form of government’ that Jack Ruby spoke of in 1964. It was always there before the 1980s, but just harder to see. 2002’s Bowling for Columbine summarized U.S. involvement in government throughout the world after WW II very succinctly:

1953: The U.S. overthrows Prime Minister Mossadeq of Iran and installs the Shah as Dictator
1954: The U.S. overthrows democratically-elected President Arbenz of Guatamala while killing over 200,000 civilians.
1963: The U.S. backs the assassination of South Vietnamese President Diem paving the way for the killing of 4 million civilians in Southeast Asia from 1963 to 1975
1973: The U.S. stages a coup in Chile. Democratically-elected President Salvador Allende was assassinated. Augusto Pinochet was installed as Dictator. 5,000 Chileans were murdered.
1977: The U.S. backs military rulers of El Salvador. 70,000 Salvadorans were killed along with 4 American nuns.
1980: The U.S. trains Osama Bin Laden and his men to fight the Soviets in Afghanistan bankrolled by 3 billion dollars from the CIA.
1981: The Reagan Administration trains and funds contras (Nicaraguan rebels) 30,000 Nicaraguans die.
1982: The U.S. provides billions of dollars in aid to Saddam Hussein for weapons to fight the Iranians.
1983: The White House secretly gives Iranians the weapons to fight the Iraqis they are also funding.
1989: CIA agent Manuel Noriega (also serving as President of Panama) disobeys orders from Washington leading to an American invasion to remove him. There were 3,000 Panamanian civilian casualties.
1990: Iraq invades Kuwait with weapons provided from the United States.
1991: The U.S. enters Iraq and President Bush reinstates the dictator of Kuwait.
1998: President Clinton orders the bombing of a supposed weapons factory in the Sudan. The factory, as it turns out, was making aspirin.
2000: The U.S. gives Taliban-ruled Afghanistan 245 million dollars in aid.
2001: Osama Bin Laden purportedly uses his expert CIA training to murder 3,000 U.S. citizens on American soil.

Try coupling this with unraveling the regulations on the financial industry put in place by President Roosevelt and the New Deal: it’s devastatingly scary. What exactly happened in the financial industry from the 1980s and up? Here’s a condensed summary in layman’s terms rather than language Wall Street doesn’t want us to understand:

The Reagan administration loosened the chains on financial regulations set forth after the Great Depression. It was an unprecedented ‘credit revolution’ and predatory lending for (and to) the middle class soared. Can’t pay for it? Don’t worry; just put it on this credit card. Own a house and need some money? Take out a second mortgage. It’s quick and easy.

The argument can be made that the 1980s saw a massive economic up-swing for Wall Street and the banking industry, not because of Reaganomics and supply-side economics, but simply because there was a tremendous influx of middle-class Americans buying things they could never afford to pay back. Debt equals money.

The de-regulation of the 1990s

De-regulation of the financial industry continued in the 1990s during the Clinton administration. Mentioned earlier, the Glass-Steagall Act in 1933 separated securities firms from commercial banks in order to protect the deposits from consumers. It wasn’t foolproof. The Federal Reserve offered an alternate interpretation of Glass-Steagall in 1998, which allowed securities banks and deposit banks to operate as one entity, thereby allowing Citibank and Salomon Smith Barney to merge. We now had one of America’s largest securities firms and largest banks in the same basket. It is like giving a compulsive gambler a truckload of extra cash and turning him loose at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Because of this loophole that the Federal Reserve created, Clinton in turn declared that Glass-Steagall was no longer relevant. 1999’s Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act repealed the Glass-Steagall Act, and the rash of corporate banking mergers began. If financial regulations were pants, this act just invited bankers to a nudist colony.

As the 1990s turned into the 2000s and the George W. Bush presidency, the same pattern continued. In 2003, ‘regulations’ were issued that simply exempted banks from state laws against predatory lending. All state laws in that regard were then nullified and the banks were free to engage. In 2004, the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) eliminated the net capital rule, which required that brokers limit their debt-to-net capital ratio to 12 to 1, which means that for every dollar that they earned, they could invest $12. This repeal meant little to smaller banks who not only did not merge with investment banks but also did not participate in gambling with their customers’ money. However, there were five investment banks that qualified for the newly loosened restrictions of 40 to 1; these were Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs, and Morgan Stanley. Later, in 2007, the SEC eliminated the uptick rule, which essentially made it hard for speculators (or gamblers) to push down the price of a stock after betting it would fall. Eliminating the uptick rule gave a green light to stock manipulation. Gordon Gekko would have been proud.

The economic disaster that occurred in 2008 has been so over-complicated that most Americans still can’t understand what transpired. It, in fact, was very simple high stakes gambling that went horribly wrong. Aaron Sorkin’s script for Too Big to Fail explained it perfectly:

“Wall Street started bundling home loans together, mortgaged backed securities, and selling slices of these bundles to investors. They were making big money, so they started pushing the lenders and saying; come on, we need more loans. The lenders were already giving loans to those with good credit, but they needed more. So, they started going bottom-feeding. Before, you needed a credit score of 620 and a down payment of 20 percent to buy a home. Now they will settle for a 500 score and no money down. The regular home buyer on the street assumes the experts know what they are doing. If the bank is willing to loan me the money, then I must be able to afford it. So he reaches for that American dream and he buys that house. At the same time, banks knew that securities based on shit mortgages were risky. So to control that risk, the banks started buying insurance. So if a mortgage defaults, the insurance company pays (which is called a default swap, i.e. credit default swap). The banks insure their potential losses so they can move the risk off of their books so they can invest more and in turn make more money. One insurance firm was willing to take on an incredible amount of risk – AIG. Why? Fees. Hundreds of millions in fees alone. AIG figures the housing market would keep going up and up, but then the unexpected happens. Housing prices suddenly go down. Johnny Homebuyer’s teaser rate on his mortgage runs out, payments go up, and he defaults. Mortgage backed securities tank and AIG has to pay off the swaps. All of them. Worldwide. At the same time. AIG can’t pay, they go under. Every bank they insure books massive losses – on the same day. Then they all go under. It all comes down.”

Fourteen Signs of Fascism

What does all this mean? Yes, the United States has made some bad financial decisions and some bad foreign policy decisions since the late 1950s and early 1960s. Still feels like the same government, doesn’t it? We have a Congress, a Senate, a President, and a Supreme Court. You know, the same system of checks and balances that those guys like Washington, Franklin, Adams, and Jefferson had a part in putting together. We are still a democracy aren’t we? We still have a free market that drives capitalism, don’t we? If so, then what changed? What was Jack Ruby talking about? Look closer. Look at the characteristics of our government and its policies from 1960 to the present day. Look at those characteristics beside Dr. Lawrence Britt’s Fourteen Defining Characteristics of Fascism (after he studied Hitler’s Germany, Mussolini’s Italy, and Franco’s Spain) and re-answer that question. They are as follows:

1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism - Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.

2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights - Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of “need.” The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.

3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause - The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial, ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.

4. Supremacy of the Military - Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.

5. Rampant Sexism - The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Divorce, abortion and homosexuality are suppressed and the state is represented as the ultimate guardian of the family institution.

6. Controlled Mass Media - Sometimes the media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.

7. Obsession with National Security - Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.

8. Religion and Government are Intertwined - Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government’s policies or actions.

9. Corporate Power is Protected - The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.

10. Labor Power is Suppressed - Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed.

11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts - Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked.

12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment - Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.

13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption - Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.

14. Fraudulent Elections - Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

Looking at those 14 characteristics of Fascism, can we look at ourselves in America and see any of these things happening? Just to name a few examples, the Patriot Act (losing the 4th Amendment), freedom fries, ‘Either you’re with us or you’re with the terrorists,’ military spending to astronomical amounts to the point where half of which could still create the most amazing military the world has ever seen, Guantanamo Bay, corporations as people, the disdain for science and facts, breaking up worker’s unions, ‘liberal’ Hollywood, the 2000 election recount, having the world’s largest inmate population per capita, controlling women’s bodies, a corporate and special interest controlled press, cronyism (only supported friends or party ideas just because they are the party’s ideas), foreign policy based on God’s will and speaking to God rather than rational thought, etc. The list of examples could go on for days.

What has become of America?

Have we in America become what the Greatest Generation gave their lives to stop in the Second World War? Or is our nation’s behavior, both in terms of policy and economics, merely coincidence? There is no way to know 100% if our nation’s path was done inadvertently to ensure our nation’s security or whether our course as a nation changed to a ‘new form of government taking over’ as Jack Ruby said way back almost a half a century ago.

Some questions may never be answered. Was Jack Ruby a man who knew of a plot to quietly overthrow the United States government and disguise it as an assassination by a lone Marxist Texan who is such a good shot because he was a Marine? Or was Jack Ruby in 1964 sitting in jail trying to say something to cover his ass because he murdered a man on national television? Only Jack Ruby could have answered that question for us. Whether coincidence or not, what he said holds a lot of weight still in the present day. If what he said is true, then who is pulling the strings? The banks, the corporations, the Bilderburg Group, Mickey Mouse? One thing is quite clear if what Ruby said is true. The President of the United States is never the one in charge. He only looks like he is.

In current times, posing the Jack Ruby scenario against every political or social argument in America makes things very interesting. Social media has given everyone in America to voice their opinions no matter how uneducated, under-informed, or ignorant they may be. If what Jack Ruby said is true, all of the arguments we hear every single day, whether it be about guns, drugs, sexual orientation, war, political ideology, gender equality, government budgets, economic issues, or the media itself is absolutely irrelevant. All of those arguments have to use the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights as a cornerstone of the fundamental rights and privileges of being an American citizen. However, if the United States as we know it (and the Constitution knows it) was overthrown via a coup d’état in 1963, then everything that everyone wastes their time arguing over and debating to the point of suicide and revolutionary thoughts every single day is a moot point. They are all protesting the wrong government and wrong set of rules. If one can approach the happenings of every day’s news with the understanding that a ‘new form of government’ took over years ago, then one can slowly begin to make sense of why the U.S. government does the things it does and shows no regard to the documents and values on which this country was built. Political parties could just be distraction and disguise that this shadow government needs to keep the people entertained and not thinking about what is actually happening behind the curtain. We have no way of knowing if it’s true, but it’s a perfect plan if it is. Just look at how worked up Americans get over an election, which in the long run is essentially meaningless in regards to modern U.S. policy. The election’s (and candidate’s) only impact is the perception and statement it sends to the rest of the world’s citizens and their nations.

Despite the fact that the United States most certainly displays every characteristic of a Fascist state, it has something else that other Fascists nations in the past didn’t have. Americans. There is a case to be made that American Exceptionalism is genuinely a psychological disorder (just look at that guy with the ‘Romney” face tattoo in 2012). American Exceptionalism is also something else. Our nation was built on backbreaking work by those that could and by the creativity and innovation of those who were told they can’t. It’s that spirit within everyone that makes the United States an experiment in freedom, hope, and opportunity that will be studied by scholars thousands of years ahead of all of us. It’s that spark of knowing that we can do better and be better than the past that sustains our nation’s people. The United States hasn’t always done everything right the first time, but it has always found its way when it has become lost. That’s what makes this country special. That’s what makes us special as Americans: the ability to do just that. As John Kennedy said, “The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need men who can dream of things that never were.”

  1. One thing the article did not mention about fascist governments is that they cracked down on organised crime. This is particularly true of Mussolini in Italy and how he waged war on the mafia. In contrast Roosevelt and his administration worked hand in hand with these criminals and considered them to be allies during the US invasion of Sicily in 1943.

    • The Rothschild concubine FDR issued Exec Order 6102 which confiscated privately held gold from Americans and made it a crime for not handing it over to his goons. How’s that for a laugh? A narco warmonger like him criminalizing the rest of us. Like he didn’t already have enough power, money, and narcotics as it was. He was a street rat and yet the average American thinks he was a great President.

  2. Another case of Hyperdimensionals and their psychopathic cohorts changing the course of human events? From John Keel’s Haunted Planet, Chapter Nine – MEN-IN-BLACK LORE AND THE CIA:

    “Another group of CIA-baiting researchers is now overlapping into ufology. They are the comparatively small teams of amateur sleuths dedicated to investigating the assassination of President Kennedy. Here the black Cadillacs and the slight, dark men in black suits are viewed as Cubans and CIA agents. Paranoia runs high because now over fifty witnesses, reporters, and assassination investigators have met with sudden death, some under the most suspicious circum­stances. The full story of Kennedy’s murder in Dallas in 1963 is filled with incredible details, many of them similar to things found in the most mysterious of the UFO incidents. Photos and physical evidence have vanished or been tampered with just as in so many UFO cases. A wide assortment of mystery men have been involved; including doppelgangers of the late Lee Harvey Oswald [See Richard PopMn, The Second Oswald].

    This other Oswald even turned up at a public rifle range before the assassination, making a nuisance of himself (so the witnesses would be sure to remember him?} as he fired an unusual gun which spat out balls of fire at the target. He also visited an automobile showroom and went for a demonstration ride in a new car. The real Oswald could not drive. His whereabouts at the time of these incidents are known – and he was nowhere near the rifle range and auto agency.

    The huge Warren Report contains numerous pieces of sworn tes­timony describing MIB-type men in the vicinity of Dealey Plaza and the School Book Depository building immediately before and after the assassination. Long-haired men were seen. This may not sound extraordinary, but remember that long hair was most unusual in 1963. The Beatles did not begin to make an impression until 1964, and the long-hair fad did not get underway until 1965-6.
    [...]
    There are millions of people today who do believe that Venusians, Martians, angels, and demons are walking among us unnoticed, their long hair and peculiar dress and manners no longer attracting atten­tion. Strange men in black turtleneck sweaters and wrap around sun glasses (a favourite garb of our MIB) are being reported everywhere. The black Cadillacs are on the prowl.

    Have we been invaded by beings from outer space or from some other space-time continuum as so many now believe, or is it that we are just beginning to notice the funny folk who have been in our midst all along?”

    Keel also recounts a connection between Kenneth Arnold, the Maury Island affair, and Fred L. Crisman.

    “District Attorney James Garrison of New Orleans subpoenaed one Fred Lee Crisman of Tacoma, Wash­ington, to testify before the Grand Jury listening to Garrison’s evi­dence against Clay Shaw, according to wire service stories in November, 1963. Crisman was identified as a radio announcer, but Garrison’s investigators implied that he was either a member of the CIA or had been ‘engaged in undercover activity for a part of the industrial warfare complex’. He allegedly operated under a cover as a preacher and was ‘engaged in work to help Gypsies’. These stories caused a chain reaction in UFO circles, since UFO believers have long accused the CIA of being somehow connected with the flying saucer mystery. Of course, the CIA was in its infancy in 1947 at the time of the Maury Island case and was then largely staffed by naval personnel from World War n intelligence units.”

    I’d never come across this type of info before nor did I know that Arnold had a brush with death related to his connection with the Maury Island affair (Arnold had his sighting over Mt. Ranier three days after the Maury Island incident). Efforts to substantiate the bizarre incident began falling apart along with mysterious deaths; Arnold was advised to “get out of this town”. He left in his private plane and after stopping to refuel and resuming flight, his engine stopped cold. His expert flying skills saved him from a serious crash.

    Ignoring the connection of the hyperdimensional reality and its direct involvement in human events via the collective psychopaths in all their various guises (and their role as the playing pieces in the Secret Games of the Gods) – just how asleep can we be?

  3. This was on Examiner.com? Very interesting. Obviously, a deflection from the obvious suspects: the Zionist Talmud Mafia to the design: the NWO. Examiner.com is a known Zionist resource.

    Of course there was a coup d’etats. You don’t kill the President of the United States of America, the Commander and Chief of the most powerful military in the world, and elected leader of the richest nation for sh*ts and giggles.

  4. Dr. Fetzer,
    This is an important and critical analysis, eps. considering where America is today.
    Therefore, my following comment is not meant as a negation, merely as an interpretive note. American history is replete with staged events to trigger wars. Such events might, or might not add up to false flag style events, nonetheless, they are common. Such was the case with the Spanish-American war, and the war with Mexico, with WW1 and WW2. In each one of these cases, America was steered into war via guile and deception-if not outright treason-by its own leadership.
    Let us also keep in mind that for most of America’s existence, the frontier acted as both pressure release and salve for irreconcilable social forces. One notable exception to this rule was the civil war. The Civil war brought to the forefront the question of HOW this country was going to be organized-as an industrial or as an agrarian state.
    Further, the struggle of America with vicious central bankers has been ongoing. Even today, the private central bank-fedres-is the object of massive mistrust. The struggles of Jackson and Lincoln with the bankers is documented, although not widely, and even today we find Jefferson’s words regarding the bankers to be amazingly prescient.
    Thus, some of what is claimed to be a path to fascism is in fact, documented American experience.
    What is particularly alarming to anyone bothering to pay attention today, is the near complete marriage of corporate and government interests, which is leading to an increasingly brutal and sadistic management style unlike anything this country has seen before. Modern technology is no longer being harnessed to move humanity forward, but to further empower an already overly empowered narco-police state.
    What is chilling about all of this is the logical conclusion, which is nothing less than death by self constriction.

  5. Right folks: As I previously linked in other VT pages these documents confirm your assertions:

    “If the united states ever experiences an attempt at a coup to overthrow the government it will come from the C.I.A.” JFK, 1963.

    The Pentagon, The CIA, Vietnam and JFK

    *************http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=_mLaNs_6d6s#!

  6. Good question. In speculative, but instructive answer, I suspect that author (Pardue) is with CIA—which was set up by international bankers (Allan Dulles their lawyer/James Warburg—international banker quoted by haroldsmith above, as his assistant to organize operations—for perfidy); and, per Fletcher Prouty’s The Secret Team, CIA instigated and led all wars (called the Jews’ harvest throughout history) since Korea (never disclosed to Americans). JFK planned to abolish CIA which was described by him (via Arthur Krock, NYT, Oct. 3, 1963) as a “malignancy” out of control and designated one responsible for ensuing “coup”. CIA facilitated 9/11 (led by Israel and our neocons) and tortured innocent arabs for false confessions.

    Neoconservatives (Jews) believe in lies to the masses, now official policy called “Perception Management”, which makes them a predator. Actually, Talmud also makes them a predator, as does also belief in privileges for money above truth and justice. Per Jim Stone Reports on Luciferism, Jews equate wealth with holiness, and view Rothschild as virtual god. Such views are inimical to truth and justice and do not belong in positions of trust. Via Perception Management and its blatant lies to manipulate us, our government, media and tv/Hollywood/pr firms have been weaponized against the people.

    Notwithstanding historical and Biblical support and fact of recurring Jewish cycles of tortures and expulsions due to murders, thefts and frauds, 9/11 remains the key, but we have no leader and no mainstream media. Even though this is a war against Satan, churches are not aware of it or their service role. Stupidity maximus.

    Led by comfortable, affluent ministers, Christians are the most worthless and misguided people on earth. Virtually none are informed or awake. They are so screwed up factually and theologically that they are not truthseekers and do not understand that their role is to find and oppose Satan (who is destroying their country and freedom and has installed evil in our core institutions). Christianity in America is completely off track; subjugated and headed to hell. The enormity of the peril needs to be understood by all.

    What will be the term and extent of destruction and suffering before the cycle is reversed with perfidy recognized, wealth recouped and removed from positions of power/trust?

    • James, I would agree with your statement….. “Led by comfortable, affluent ministers, Christians are the most worthless and misguided people on earth. Virtually none are informed or awake. They are so screwed up factually and theologically that they are not truthseekers and do not understand that their role is to find and oppose Satan (who is destroying their country and freedom and has installed evil in our core institutions).” Religions have really been used as a tool by the ‘Power Elite’. Exceptions would be Christians such as the late Christopher Story who understood this Satanic angle perfectly and also Jonas Alexis, who writes extremely perceptively on this very site.

  7. Satanists probably cannibalized JFK’s brain:
    Gerry Spence (Top U.S. Trial Lawyer) questions JFK coroner:

    @ Min: 3.50: Coroner Paul O’Connor answered: “there was no brain in JFK’s head”!!!

    What Happened to Kennedy’s Brain

    ******************************http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDYNMlXD59o

  8. The thing is, Jacob Rubenstein’s statements don’t exist in a vacuum. Other Jews have spoken of a “one world government” (run by Jews, obviously); e.g., “We will have a world government whether you like it or not. The only question is whether that government will be achieved by conquest or consent.”(Jewish Banker James Paul Warburg, February 17, 1950, as he testified before the U.S. Senate).

    • I am wondering why the bankster angle does not receive more prominence. It appears that the Secret Service was ordered to stand down just prior to the JFK turkey shoot.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XY02Qkuc_f8

      And who does the Secret Service work for? The Executive Branch? No the SS works for the Federal Reserve!

      So let’s see, we have JFK issuing US notes in direct competition to the Federal Reserve Notes. Then the Federal Reserve employees assigned to “protect” the president leave him unprotected just before the assassination.

      Nothing suspicious about that.

  9. Excellent work done by Jim Fetzer on the killing of JFK makes clear why Oswald had to be killed as quickly as possible. Ruby realized that he was a marked man. A patriotic Jewish American, but fingered fatally by others, he struggled in expressing loyalty to both tribe and country. He must have known that he was a doomed man. This column by Purdue is excellent in its historical sweep and insights although unnecessarily coy regarding the RFK and MLK assassinations.

    It is distressing that its author falls back on the same old idiotic mantra of Bin Laden killing 3,000. That, hopefully intentionally, masks disclosing the huge change postulated by the rest of this fine article. The situation in which the whole of civilization today finds itself is revealed when willing to face the truth of 9/11. That event, as the murder of JFK, was instrumental in effecting changes alluded to in the article. Corporate collusion, when revealed, screams for an examination and reform of systems which today underlie modern civilization. For a list of corporations complicit, please scroll to pages 73 and 74 at http://tinyurl.com/c7ug687

    • Stewart: I am a fan and always learn from your posts and articles.

      Merely to relay suspicions from other books: pp. 176-8 of Final Judgment relays story to support suspicion that Ruby’s death from fast cancer was fake; with Grace Pratt who ran restaurant beside Ruby’s connecting bar, reporting seeing Ruby on tv post alleged death, boarding plane for Israel, turning and facing camera removing and tipping hat goodbye with later reports of him having settled in Brazil; now add that to context of McVeigh to Gore Vidal and others believing that his planned execution (for OKC bombing) will be a sham, and one witness to execution saying that he was breathing after declared dead; and then consider two instances of 9/11: One of the passengers on Boston 9/11 flight was big executive with software company and officer/commando with Israeli Army, (Daniel Lewin, allegedly shot and killed mid-flight per FAA before crashing into WTC) but since no passenger plane really crashed (and there were no arab hijackers), he undoubtedly leads a double life somewhere. And recall the Supreme court lawyer’s wife (Barbara Olsen) who allegedly called and died in Pentagon crash. [Our CIA has long had ability to simulate voices, and did so to foment conflict and trap in 1967 (fake voice of Nasser to incite Jordan from peace to action), per Operation Cyanide by Hounan, but no need to simulate if caller is in on the hoax (9/11)---which was sold (falsely) on basis of no deaths or faked deaths to justify cooperation by participating actors---which is why Condi Rice thought little of warning Mayor Brown of SF or the other advance warnings.] That Pentagon plane also did not crash, and that lawyer (Ted Olsen) married someone who looked precisely like his former wife with a face lift a year or two later, on lawn with Henry Kissinger in attendance. Photos all over web.

      The above constitute four stories of fake deaths (related to JFK, OKC, and 9/11), plus many more in 9/11 per Sept. Clues (thanks to your fine re-reporting), but not all, as they purposefully murder true patriots and opponents, like John O/Neal or whistleblowers, etc, and care nothing for aftermath..]

  10. T. Rosenfeld = WWI

    F. Rosenfeld = WWII

    Sort of rock n roll like dISRAELi Gears now isn’t it?

  11. I do not like some of the actions and tendencies discussed, but the notion that Stalin and crew just wanted to be left in peace whilst popular on the left is false, he was certainly scheming for wider conquests and even nuclear war, for which latter see eg Edvard Radzinsky’s bio. The man was a power crazed psychopathic mass murderer, and he was only stopped when he started to threaten the Jews and his entourage with the same treatment he had dished out to most everyone else. His successors were not quite so crazy but then Mao took over the mantle, until it suited him to deal with Nixon to get his own back on the Soviets with whom he split when they knocked back his nuclear war notions. Unfortunately some in the US overdid aspects of resisting the Reds, and were too prone to see it in terms of monolithic black and white, in that sense Nixon was certainly more subtle, though some might argue he just helped create a new set of problems.

    • the cold war was bullshit-Stalin, a puppit for the jews. It’s called the jew’s plan for perpetual revolution till they rule and own everything! Till then, they will always be “persecuted jews”!

    • What is your information and knowledge of Stalin based on?

      • Question is to Steve: are their specific books or other materials that describe Stalin in this way? I know that there is a popular consensus that he was the evil dictator, but this a kind of a nebulous sentiment as opposed to that which we experience ourselves, or even learn about through specific documents. In this era of revisionist history, I am curious about the true nature of all historical people and events. I know, for example, that Stalin believed Roosevelt — a man he respected and honored with his cooperation — was assassinated by the cabal that backed Churchill. He told this to Roosevelt’s son and sent an agent to inspect the corpse for poison but Roosevelt’s wife did not allow it to be viewed openly. Nowhere in our government do we hear about this, even from alternative journalists. And to the author above who believed Stalin was a puppet of the Jews, it is believed by many that Stalin was actually killed by the “doctor’s plot”, of Jewish financial interests. So we can’t always paint with a large brush. It is a tragic mistake that most patriot types associate the international socialist movement with a Jewish conspiracy when the truth is the reverse. Jewish finance capital was the impetus behind the intense anti-communist movement for obvious reasons. Wealth can only exist if it is protected, including the disparity between rich and poor that is required for an oligarchy to maintain a parasitic hegemony. And thus structures like the Federal Reserve, or the Bank of England, need many layers of security, including social and ideological cover. The true illuminati were opponents of such economic royalism that has been accumulating capital and prosecuting imperialism since William of Orange took power, financed by Jewish groups that maintain that power to this day.

        • Joseph Stalin was well known to the Russian police as a criminal which of course made him a star employee of the Rothschilds at their Baku plant. Here is his mug shot when the Tsarist police recognized him for what he was:

          http://www.fold3.com/document/255289198/

          No wonder he fits in with all the rest of them. They’re all the same. And of course FDR would call him “Uncle Joe” wouldn’t he. Another hoodlum telling us what to do and plunging us into war for sport.

        • RU kidding? We know for a fact that Stalin buried over 1 million of his own people with bullets in their skulls, plus millions of others starved and/or worked to death, as well as hundreds of thousands of women raped etc. He said “We will destroy every enemy, even if he is an Old Bolshevik, we will destroy his kin, his family. Anyone who by his actions or thoughts encroaches on the unity of the socialist state, we shall destroy relentlessly”. He also installed disciples like Mao in other countries to continue the ‘cleansing’. The bastard killed and imprisoned some of my relatives on a personal level, most not even particularly politically minded. He was a Grade-A SOB if ever there was one. And as for Roosevelt, he was viewed as just a tool like anyone else who sympathised, and would have been dumped in a ditch with the rest if it had come to it.

          (My 3rd attempt to post this)

          • Research into the history of Russia during Stalin is not to my knowledge as simple as picking up a few books. Much of what I learned was from personal testimony, especially from people who fled the Ukraine when Stalin rose to power.
            Bits and pieces can be found and corroborated in many areas, however. Stalin’s never ending murder rampages were often referred to as “purges”. A nice, sanitized word that does not come close to describing the kind of mass murder that took place.
            Part of the reason why it is so difficult to find truth concerning Stalin-even here on VT, is that he is still credited with defeating the “evil Nazis”, a myth that several commentators and authors refuse to let die.
            Many of the crimes of Stalin are blamed on Germany and the Nazis. Here is a simple question for the evil Nazi myth promoters. Why did so many countries that the evil Nazis overran supply the Wehrmacht and the Waffen SS with their best young men to go fight the good guy Russians? Why do the Baltic states still recognize their sacrifice and honor them as freedom fighters?
            Stalin did not defeat the Nazis. This was done by his Field Marshalls and their fighting men, many of whom he purged. Stalin was an obstacle to the Russian military, and he in fact ensured the degradation of the Russian army into a pack of criminal savages. No wonder he murdered 4 million active duty military after the defeat of Germany.
            Best estimates are that Russia lost 5,000 fighting men per day of their war with Germany. The Wehrmacht came closer than any other invasion force to toppling the effing commies, but as usual jews, bankers, and industrialists rushed to prop up the murderous savages.
            Anyone who thinks Stalin was a war hero has a very perverted definition of hero. Anyone who thinks the Russian defeat of Nazi Germany was good for humanity-and the world, had better sit down and take another hard, cold look at the facts.

  12. Thanks, Dr. Fetzer, for continuing fine contributions to keys to our demise and perilous condition.

    Jack Ruby (ne Rubenstein) is also remembered for repeatedly saying, on the record to Chief Justice Earl Warren and others, that his greatest fear was that his race would be tortured and expelled from the country when the truth came out on the JFK assassination.

    • duh! Scared of the jews, of course, or one of them :)

    • The SATANIC ASSASSINS murdered JFK, RFK, and many others as ritual assassinations. They probably cannibalized JFK’s brain since his head was reportedly found empty when his body arrived in DC!!!

      The tape-recording you mentioned must be sealed somewhere.

      Any government insiders can get a hold of that???

      Jack RubenStein’s words suggest that JFK & RFK & their staff may have been onto exposing the SATANIC MURDER RITUAL called “HOLOCAUST” which is secretly practiced by Satanic cults passing themselves as JEWS as documented in the multiple linked videos & historic documents I have linked to before such as this one:

      Jewish Ritual Murder Revisited: The Hidden Cult (Full Version)
      ***************http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-LjcC9aJII

      It is time that “REAL JEWS” come forward & expose & document these crimes of the SATANIC CULTs which are also the same ones who have been bombing and terrorizing Palestine since 1945 with the help of their SATANIC European & American government insiders led by Rothschilds.

  13. The demise of the American democratic state can be best seen in methodology outlined in the pages of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion and the book exposing the nature of the Federal Reserve Bank, The Beast of Jekyll Island.

    It is not possible to move a nation as far around as what has happened to America, without not only controlling its money, but destroying the very foundations upon which the nation is grounded.

    The solution to regaining what has been lost is to take back our Treasury and throw the Federal Reserve Bank off the bus.

  14. Good article by Mr. Pardue. An argument can also be made that the US since 1963 has become polarized; both left and right have become extreme. In the old days, Democrats and Republicans had shared values to a very large extent, which were similar to those of the early founders: a belief in God, hard work, thrift, balancing the budget, minding your own business.

    Since 1963, I think that both Communism AND Fascism have run rampant, and they are not that different at all. Most of the 14 signs of fascism are also common to Communism, although some of them, like #5 sexism and #8 religion, are turned upside down in Communism. but both are TOTALITARIAN.

    Seen in the light of an interplay between 2 extreme ideologies, the history of the US since 1963 makes more sense. Madalyn O”Hair was a Communist atheist rather than a fascist. But she was a control freak too.

    I see the 2 extremes becoming more extreme, and they both want CONTROL.

    • I hit the Submit button too soon. I wanted to add that one of the things that has troubled me since the 1960s is the proliferation of religious/political cults in the US, mind-control cults, etc. The first one that I noticed, is the same one that blew everyone’s mind in 1969: the Manson Family band of lunatics and the gruesome murders, especially of a pregnant Sharon Tate. Unroll the religious/political cults, follow their money; THAT could be interesting. Yes, religion has been a tool, a big one, and will continue to be.

      But I think that CONTROL is the central issue, and that the CONTROLLERS use fascism as just one of their faces.

      • Right on. Bolshevik Communism is basically government in control of everything and Jews in control of the government. Fascism is basically corporations in control of everything and Jews in control of the corporations.

        Hitler and the Communists hated each other because they resented the competition, like two rival street gangs, but were both the same, ideologically speaking.

        • in the end, with both, the jews are in control, one’s controlled with gold the other, with the Tommie gun

          • Jim, thanks for putting up this superb article by Dustin Pardue. DaveE has summarised this succinctly, effectively confirming Mr Pardue’s opinion that the the evidence points to the US being a fascist state. I remember at grammar school in the UK in the 1970s, our history teacher drawing a circle on the blackboard and going round it chalking up where the various political persuasions were. He got to 5 to 12 on ‘the clock’ and wrote communism. At 5 past 12 he scribbled fascism. As young teenagers, we could not really understand this as we were brought up (conditioned !) to think that the two concepts were diametrically opposed. He replied…. ‘In theory yes…..in practice, as close as two peas in a pod’. Of course, after many years reading and experience, all this is much clearer. Where the USA, UK and most other countries are now has been developed by subversion ie. creeping incremental changes. This fascist state has been neatly termed by authors such as Jeffrey Sachs (‘The Price of Civilsation’) and John Perkins (‘Confessions of and Economic Hitman’) as a ‘Corporatocracy’. Of course Joe usually hits the nail on the head as to who, historically has been behind both types of oppressive regime !

        • Yes, excellent. Unawakened people will often claim ” Which is he? A communist or a capitalist? He can’t be both.”

          What they fail to understand is that communism and capitalism are just systems of control. The controllers can wear one system or the other as easily as a normal man wears a blue tie or a red tie, depending on the day.

          They are not ideologies to be adhered to by the controllers. They are instead systems of control, adopted based on what most closely fits with their needs at any given point in time.

  15. We have been ruled by psychopaths and pyromaniacs for centuries and they have only become worse and more numerous with time. They have access to weapons, money, armies, etc. and like all screwballs they can’t stop themselves. They don’t even know they’re criminally insane. At least we now we know them for the street rats they are.
