The “Big Lie” predates Trump
TERRORISM. Here’s the first bite of the apple. You dig deeper.
Is Donald Trump a liar? Of course, and we all knew it before he ever was elected. The trouble was, and still is, that he never knew it? People with deep psychological and emotional flaws create their own normality that allows them to function in society. But Trump’s election to the presidency amounted to a perfect storm in which his odd “way of being” fit perfectly with the institution he joined to lead. The compulsive liar meets the deliberate liar.
You don’t have to read ”Lies My Teacher Told Me” by James Loewen to find out that deliberate misinformation about American history goes back to the era of the War for Indepenence. In my 87 years, I have learned not to blame the historians or journalists completely because most misinformation starts at the source with governments lying to people.
I was too young to pick up the nuances regarding our entry into World War II against the Germans. When I escaped the clutches of high school history texts, I was surprised at some of the more obvious untruths I found concerning the start of the Spanish-American Wat, the treatment of American native people, the annexation of Texas and the Mexican west. and how General George Custer set himself up to be the first American martyr.
That was then, but this is now. I learned in real time that Harry Truman lied about the necessity to drop TWO atomic bombs on Japan. And what could we do about the Warren Commisions lie that JFK was assassinated by a lone gunman? I knew right away that the attack by a small North Vietnamese Gunboat on an American Warship in the Gulf of Tonkin was a lie to justify our expanding our role in the Vietnam War after the French wisely abandoned their colony.
THE TERRORIST NETWORK YOU NEVER KNEW ABOUT
Unlike the anarchists pre-WW II, it is hard to decipher who are todays terrorists and what their goals are. Case in point: the US supporting terrorists to oust Syria’s Assad, the same terorists they fought in Iraq. And what is behind this constant assertion we hear on the news channels that “the US created ISIS.” And remember the same Taliban we supported to drive Russia out of Afghanistan managed to kick us out of the country.
SUSPECTED: All terrorist groups are manipulated by the intelligence services of the Western powers and used to accomplish extra-legal national objectives, most now aimed against Russia, which explains the Novichok attacks on Russian “dissidents” after they have been released to the West and the mysterious appearance of banned substances in the urine samples of Russian athletes (especially while competing in Europe).
ORIGIN: The British Intelligence Services invented these tactics of competing terrorists between the World Wars to control the Middle East and its oil resources.
NAZI CONNECTION: As the Nazi’s retreated in Europe they left undercover “stay behind” groups in each nation that could spearhead a comeback. These groups were identified and absorbed into US and British intelligence services because as fascists they would be effective fighters against Soviet Communism. They were morphed unknowingly in the 1950s into the Red Army and the Red Brigade to use terror tactics against left leaning politicians and countries.
PROOF: Watch this 3-part series on GLADIO and then Google access to the BBC documentary.
This discussion by investigative journalist Dirk Pohlmann on the assassination of the head of Deutsche Bank shows how these terrorists were used to kill the possibility of detente in Europe. Here is the youtube link to Dirk's class on Herrhausen:
