Is Bernie Sanders’s

Life In Danger?

 
 


American politicians who make waves against the political establishment as proponents for actual change have a poor history of surviving to implement their noble ideas.

In the case of Henry Wallace, powerful party insiders ended his political life by sabotaging his Vice Presidency in the nick of time before Franklin Roosevelt died.

Years later, John F. Kennedy sought to make Henry Wallace’s liberal vision a reality, but just as his efforts were catching fire, he was slaughtered on a street in broad daylight, before horrified spectators.

Not long after that, Robert F. Kennedy (a hero to the downtrodden) became a serious competitor for the Democratic nomination, after ending Eugene McCarthy’s chances to win the nomination the night of the California Primary. Robert Kennedy of course sought to reclaim the presidency that his brother lost and to expand upon that legacy.

The minutes before he died were a defining moment in his political life. For the first time Kennedy felt that he had stepped out of his brother’s shadow with his hard fought win in California. He spoke with his liaison to McCarthy, Richard Goodwin. He had a message for McCarthy. “Tell him that if he gets out now I’ll make him Secretary of State.” If Kennedy could win over McCarthy and his delegates, he could become a formidable foe for Hubert Humphrey at the Democratic National Convention, now less than three months away. After Kennedy was gunned down, Humphrey won the nomination handily.

A few years later, the Democratic party was in a strange state of disarray, and a populist, semi-disavowed racist named George Wallace was in the lead to win the presidential nomination. He too was gunned down. Unlike Kennedy, he survived, but paralysis ended his presidential aspirations all the same.

It’s been 43 years now since a presidential candidate has been shot at. In a degenerate age where paranoids perpetuate mass shootings, what are the chances that a Socialist calling for revolution like Bernie Sanders will face gunfire in the coming months? There is an anger in this country. An anger that liberalism is destroying America, or will destroy America, or would destroy America if given the chance. Some of these angry, white men with an old school mentality have lost a lot in life, and could feel that they have little to lose in taking out a presidential candidate that is (in their minds) practically a Communist.

Or is Bernie Sanders life in danger because of a threat he could face to a corrupt system? Would the intelligence agencies and militant elites that do whatever it takes to maintain their power, allow him to really get elected President? It is an issue worth evaluating as his ascent continues.

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Provide Bernie Sanders Secret Service protection immediately as a leading Democratic presidential candidate and Senator.
Bernie Sanders is a sitting U. S. Senator and a leading candidate in the presidential campaign of 2016. Recent disturbances at Bernie Sanders campaign events have shown his vulnerability with regard to potentially violent confrontations with disturbed people. In 2007, at a similar stage in that campaign, Barack Obama was given Secret Service protection by George W. Bush for exactly this reason, and he had not even experienced such disturbances yet, nor was Obama attracting crowds of over 25,000 regularly, as Senator Sanders is. This situation must not be allowed to continue a moment longer. Bernie Sanders must have immediate Secret Service protection, just as the other leading candidate does.

Panetta, Obama,

and the Central

Intelligence Agency


From my facebook status update:

“Leon Panetta has released a new book. I took an interest in reading it because a source on the internet said that Panetta and Obama were scared of the CIA. Sure enough, Panetta was completely controlled by the agency. They even refused to comply with certain decisions he made, openly. They would even tell him what to do! On the few battles Panetta did pick with them, the CIA bypassed him and took their complaints to the White House. Obama would almost always let the CIA have their way! Panetta might as well have bent over and have the CIA prod him with a sharp stick. Given that this is the same agency that assassinated President Kennedy, this sadly shouldn’t be surprising. To this day they refuse to declassify documents as mandated by the President and Congress.”

It’s not like Panetta was some pushover who came out of nowhere. He’s had an illustrious career, starting with being the first person in his family to attend college, graduating Magna Cum Laude, then with a Juris Doctor. Even in high school he became President of the Student Body. He would later go on to become a military intelligence officer in the Army, defied President Nixon after he was appointed by him to head the Civil Rights Office (Nixon essentially didn’t want Panetta to do his job). Panetta retained his job through his superiors who threatened to resign if Nixon fired him. Panetta then went on to become a Congressman where he quickly rose in the ranks through hard work and committee leadership. He was in charge of the US budget under President Clinton. To get the budget passed, you have to work with Congress which was not easy in the 1990’s, and is nearly impossible to do today. Panetta was successful in his tenure there like he was with everything else he ever did in life. He did some of his most serious work with that after he technically left the budget post to become Clinton’s White House Chief of Staff. Veteran political author Nigel Hamilton notes, “Panetta replaced (Mack) McLarty for the rest of Clinton’s first term—and the rest is history. To be a great leader, a modern president must have a great chief of staff—and in Leon Panetta, Clinton got the enforcer he deserved.”
Then he became CIA Director.
Leon Panetta had always been successful in his personal and professional relationships, and was revered by his collegaues. He was affable, positive, and generally happy, but he was also use to being a take-charge leader who enfused high morale in those who worked for him. This was not a man lacking in social skills and insight. He is an overachiever who Presidents lean on for governmental solutions, and was use to his wisdom being the one that prevailed. And yet, having read the chapters on the CIA in his book, it’s not an exaggeration to say that the CIA made Panetta their bitch. And no matter what you may think of Obama, as President he thought highly enough of Leon Panetta to follow up his appointment of him as CIA Director with the even more serious position of Defense Secretary. The US Senate thought highly enough of CIA Director Panetta to vote in favor of him as Secretary of Defense unanimously!
Panetta is no shrinking violet by reputation, and yet he gained no real, civilian control of the CIA under his leadership. Granted, some of this responsibility lies with the President, but don’t you get the feeling that the CIA does what it wants regardless of how weak or strong a Chief Executive is? Is there anyone tough enough to run the CIA? They sure aren’t intimidated by legendary bad ass Jesse Ventura.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/10/31/torture-panetta-review_n_6078194.html Panetta originally pledged to produce a report for public accountability. Once he got going though, the CIA put him in his place. So much so that Panetta was even willing to have an ass made out of himself. What was he more afraid of than losing his reputation? His safety? http://bradblog.com/?p=7408

How To Go About Understanding Conspiracy in the Assassination of JFK


Conspiracy to Assassinate JFK, 101


Researching the assassination can be a monolithic undertaking and a confusing mess, especially for a beginner. The best way to initiate oneself into the study of the conspiracy is to pick one suspect – LBJ, the CIA, the Pentagon, Hoover, Secret Service – and read up on them. I don’t reccommend focusing on the Mafia or Cuban Exiles because they are not of the government. The source of this plot is rooted in the federal government, and that’s what’s of greatest significance. A criminal organization (the mob) and a militant organization (the anti-Castro fighters) were involved, but this was a coup d’état – the overthrow of our government by our government – and to this day, the government continues to cover up this act of treason as intensely as they did 50 years ago.

How This Came To Be


A phenomena existed where severe hatred towards JFK came from all the factions of power in government. In the Executive branch it was LBJ. It was the Allen Dulles loyalists in the CIA. In the Pentagon it was Curtis LeMay, among others. In the Secret Service the hatred for JFK among agents was pervasive and open. In the State Dept, the malfeasance of Henry Cabot Lodge suggests hatred. In the FBI there was J. Edgar Hoover and Clyde Tolson. Additionally, the government had two dangerous clients – the mafia, and Cuban Exile militants – thanks to their deranged campaign to take Cuba back from Castro. They too hated Kennedy.

Why It Came To This


As horror after horror happened at the hand of JFK (as the national security establishment saw it) – the betrayal at the Bay of Pigs, a pitiful sliver of aid to South Vietnam, what would result in the Cuban Missile Crisis and its outcome, a  rapprochement with Cuba on the horizon, an impending withdrawal from South Vietnam – alliances were formed among those who saw Kennedy’s elimination as a necessity.

Exploiting the Public Trust


The conspirators knew that the notion of all these different parties and individuals being involved was something the masses would scoff at. Americans had a profound trust in their government at the time, and it was inconceivable then that so many psychopaths were in charge of it. To this day, the prospect of the government gunning down Kennedy, a popular US President, is, to many, just too wild and outrageous a belief to be open minded about. Indeed, many mainstream personalities and anonymous individuals alike scorn the idea of conspiracy. They are hostile towards, and ridicule, those who believe in – not just the JFK conspiracy, but – almost any conspiracy. This is really, really dumb, but more on that later.


Onion-on-JFK


“Actually, there were probably dozens of plots to kill Kennedy, because everybody hated Kennedy but the public.” ~ Saint John Hunt 

Introduction to a Sinister Reality


The United States became a Federal Republic upon ratification of the Constitution in 1789, and following passage of the 17th Amendment in 1913 it became a representative democracy as well. All this came to an end on November 22nd 1963, when our elected President was overthrown in a brutal Coup d’État. Since then we’ve come to live under something much different.

Conspiracy in the assassination of John F. Kennedy is not a matter of theory. It is not mere opinion or a guess that a conspiracy materialized from up on high. The evidence is there – both hard and soft – and in the case of the libel suit Liberty Lobby, the CIA’s complicity was proven in a court of law. The general public is unaware of all this, and to what extent they are aware of facts which greatly undermine the official version, they are often in denial. The public can think what it wants but they are lied to everyday by the government. Indeed, it takes a special amount of brainwashing to believe that our government tells us the truth on nearly anything at all. In other countries it is a given that we are corrupt beyond belief. Ask people in the countries we call our allies what they think, and I guarantee you they will tell you that the US government is a lying sack of shit.

The core of the US’s dysfunction stems from JFK’s death. It is the root of the corruption that reeks today. To understand the dynamics of the criminal world in which our government does its business, the JFK assassination must be understood and confronted. For the intelligence community the assassination was a successful operation that led to their founding – “Autonomous Central Intelligence Agency, Est. 1963”. The agency has worked the same way since, as it is predicated on this rich legacy of a tried and true formula implemented at the highest levels.

The best way to begin studying the assassination is to first gain familiarity with Kennedy’s presidency – specifically his foreign policy record. To that end, this link is my recommended starting point.
