By Dave Read, Nov. 22, 2023 – Politicians have deprived us of our national birthright; their recklessness has made us unworthy heirs of the good men and women who rescued non-republican Europe, Africa, and Asia from the back-to-back killing orgies their various monarchs, despots, and tyrants were impotent to prevent.
During the anti-republican millennium that preceded the American Revolution, every principality, state, and empire sought to guarantee its own immortality by way of espionage, by way of meddling in each other’s business, by every means imaginable, but especially by fraud, bribery, and assassination.
For our first dozen decades, Americans stuck to their guns and refused to betray the exalted principles the country was founded upon. Then, as another world war loomed, FDR was convinced that Hitler and Hirohito could not be defeated unless an agency was established that would oversee and coordinate Army and Navy intelligence.
The Office of Strategic Services was disbanded after the war, but only momentarily. Before our liberators had time to catch their breath and contemplate the consequence of global peace – much less dream about a world without war, somehow they were overcome by fear of Marxism, or whatever was the theory that animated Stalin’s blood lust.
And so the O.S.S. was reconstituted and re-branded as the C.I.A., and ever since, the United States has worked overtime to produce as despicable and as sullied a resume as any other nation in history. And so the American experiment in government of the people, by the people, and for the people has perished from the earth.
Under the secret rule of President Eisenhower’s friend Alan Dulles, the C.I.A. did more harm in more countries than Teddy Roosevelt even dreamed of shaking his big stock at. When the MI6 clones hired by Dulles deposed the first democratically elected head of a Muslim nation to restore the Shah of Iran, he cemented American foreign policy in perpetuity.
Even though the C.I.A. eventually admitted its dastardly deed, there are a thousand such secrets that no ordinary American has so much as a clue about. In place of the republic we inherited, there teeters and totters a bankrupt duopoly, the perpetual contest of blue versus red. No matter how pathetically short of the mark is team blue, team red is too close to being a clone of the world-wrecking Nazi party for it to be a coincidence.
Since there is documentary evidence that Donald told more than thirty thousand lies while in office, to support his return there, is to demonstrate either mental illness, or simple hostility to the American constitution. How could anyone even qualify for a high school diploma without it being demonstrated that they recognize honesty to be the sine qua non of republican democracy?
