While some may characterise this video as conspiracy nonsense the parts which deals with the early twentieth century up to the assassination of Kennedy are credible and informative. The thesis that American industrialists and bankers financed the rise of Nazism and benefited from both world wars is well evidenced. The following articles support this argument:
The testimony by General Smedley Butler that there was an attempted coup by industrialists against Roosevelt in 1934 shows the intention of the ‘military-industrial-financial’ complex to control government:
The conspirators included J P Morgan and Prescott Bush the father of G H Bush and grandfather of G W Bush. This article gives more background:
‘Rich Man’s Trick’ details the connections between the Military Industrial Complex (MIC), the CIA, politicians and the Mafia and argues that they worked together to end the life of an honest president who wanted to close down the CIA and end the profiteering of the MIC from engineered wars. The film’s thesis regarding Kennedy’s assassination is intricate and is well presented.
The section following the assassination of Kennedy is less detailed in presentation and thus easier to dismiss as speculative. While most thinking people now understand that the official account of what happened on 9/11 is absurd. The argument that London’s 7/7 bombings in 2005 and the Woolwich murder of Lee Rigby in 2013 with raise the hackles of many. However, despite some reservations I recommend this as an informative and thought provoking film.
It’s interesting to watch how this battle is developing. To begin with Jeremy Corbyn was taking the brunt of it, now that he’s weathered the storm and has gained the (sometimes grudging) admiration of a lot of non-political people, they are trying to pretend they actually quite like him and make ‘hard left’ Momentum, his ‘extremist, MP threatening antisemitic supporters’, and ‘that nasty piece of work’ John McDonnell, the ‘real problem’.
The strategy was evident in everything Alistair Campbell, Anna Soubry and Quintin Letts said on QT, which had all the appearance of a coordinated ambush. Soubry’s vicious attack on McDonnell, Campbell’s quickly escalating fight with the Shadow Chancellor, the SNP’s Joanna Cherry sniping from the sidelines and Letts’ far from subtle faux affectionate attempt to associate Jeremy with Albert (the dirty old man) Steptoe.
This is a like a piece of theater designed to have a particular effect on the public mind. I hope that by holding it up, examining it, we can use it to the opposite effect.
This week a parliamentary-report-on-libya-intervention has admitted that the intervention in Libya was unnecessary and led to that country’s collapse and the rise of Daesh. Another shameful episode in Britain’s history. Cameron is as much a war criminal as Blair and although he claims that the intervention was sanctioned by the UN it is clear that he, Sarkozy and Obama went far beyond any remit they had and supported terrorists in destroying the Libyan state. I don’t know if Cameron’s resignation as an MP was in any way connected to the publication of this report but the timing seems more than coincidental.
While Cameron is rightly blamed for leading the charge, most parliamentarians are morally complicit, as 557 of them were right behind him .. Look at who were against:
The House of Commons voted by 557 to 13 to support UN-backed action in Libya at the end of their debate on 21 March 2011 – here is the full list of MPs who voted against, or did not vote:
