Atrocities that US media hail as great victories; a US "war on terror" that's the best imaginable recruiting tool for terrorists. The "official" story of today's foreign policy is as upside-down as the mythology around the founding values of the United...

This is why no politicians stand up to the fed anymore! JFK and Lincoln were killed because they both were against using money from the international bankers. JFK was about to end the Federal Reserve Executive Order 11110 and Lincoln used the GREENBACKS
