Empire Building for Dummies


Our government’s leaders take their marching orders from corporate benefactors & the banking elite. If you’re not familiar with them, research the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations), Tri-Lateral Commission,The National Endowment for Democracy, & ALEC. These are the primary policy-making NGO’s (Non-Governmental Organizations) that are funded by top banking & corporate power brokers.

They write the playbooks that all of our puppet politicians follow. Ever wonder why whatever rhetoric our 2 party system presidents present, they seem to mirror each other in their actions?

America has been involved in expansionism at the command of the corporate and banking interests since the early 20th century, but after WWII, have moved into full-on empire building.

They are taking their orders from those lining their pockets, rather than the public they’re supposed to listen to. It’s a representational democratic republic where the people have a voice, right?

We’ll let Secretary of State Hillary Clinton answer this with the words she spoke in 2009, at the opening of the newest CFR office – ‘ I have been often to, I guess, the mother ship in New York City, but its good to have an outpost of the Council right here down the street from the State Department. We get a lot of advice from the Council, so this will mean I wont have as far to go to be told what we should be doing and how we should think about the future.’

History has shown repeatedly that when a people understand the issues and are United, that the people have all the power.   We give the governments their power, they rule by consent of the governed, that’s why they lie to us all the time, to get us to consent to things that we otherwise never would.
