Don't be surprised to hear in the news that a number of Americans who
have gone to fight with ISIS have returned to the U.S. and are committing
terrorist acts here (e.g., exploding IEDs on roadsides, setting fires,
Concerning Jim's statement that the Power Elite (PE) likes to refer to those who oppose them as "right-wing extremists," I replied "Yes, but they are going to have a hard time characterizing the leftist Columbia University sociologist C. Wright Mills as a 'right-wing extremist.' And in Mills' THE POWER ELITE (1956), he acknowledged: 'There is...little doubt that the American power elite---which contains, we are told, some of "the greatest organizers in the world"---has...planned and plotted....Certain types of men from each of the dominant institutional areas, more far-sighted than others, have actually promoted the liaison (of the power elite) before it took its truly modern shape....The power elite is not all together "surfaced."...Many higher events that would reveal the working of the power elite can be withheld from public knowledge under the guise of secrecy. With the wide secrecy covering their operations and decisions, the power elite can mark their intentions, operations and further consolidation....New men come into it (the power elite) and assume its existence without question.'
They are also going to have a hard time characterizing the leftist nationally syndicated columnist, Alexander Cockburn, as a 'right-wing extremist.' Cockburn writes for the left-wing magazine. THE NATION, and in his May 4,1995 column in THE SEATTLE TIMES, he expressed his belief that 'There is, in emerging outline, a world government composed of the International Monetary Fund and the central banks of the leading industrial nations. National sovereignty is being eroded, most recently by the GATT treaty. Libraries are under threat, as now displayed by (President) Clinton's anti-terrorism package. Politics in America are so decayed, so rotted out, that the surprise is not that there are patriotic militias but that there aren't more of them.'"
I also related that Pulitzer prize-winning writers Don Bartlett and Jim Steele of THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER had written a series of articles beginning September 8, 1996 based upon their new book, AMERICA: WHO STOLE THE DREAM? (1996). The series included titles such as "How U.S. Policies Are Costing American Jobs: Washington rules on trade, taxes, immigration and foreign competition---and the growing concentration of corporate power---are moving the nation toward a two-class society"; "Importing Goods, Exporting Jobs: Washington has opened wide the doors of America, the world's most lucrative consumer market, to foreign products, without adequately safeguarding American jobs"; and "Endangered Label: 'Made in U.S.A.': product after product once made or grown in the United States now comes from abroad. One of the biggest losers in this influx: Small businesses."
Jim nodded his head in agreement and said, "It really helps when you can show that it is not just people on the 'far right' who believe that something is wrong, but that there are also liberals and moderates who see a threat to our freedoms, jobs, and sovereignty." "To be sure," I replied, "and that is why I quoted Professors Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. and Carroll Quigley saying that the Council on Foreign Relations was a 'front' for the power elite. And that is also why I quote someone like Terry Galanoy, because his former position as Director of Communications for National Bankamericard, later VISA, lends credibility to his revealing statements in CHARGE IT: INSIDE THE CREDIT CARD CONSPIRACY (1980), in which he wrote: 'George Orwell's notorious character "Big Brother" will actually turn out to be Big Banker; all-seeing, all-knowing, all-controlling, capable of destroying any resistance....Where they're taking you is to a totally different kind of economic society in which you will have little or no privacy, in which your income and everything you own will be under their control....You will be a profitable, dependable, fiscally sound, paid-up citizen even if they have to destroy your freedom and even your life to do it."
"Oh my," Jim uttered, "that sounds like they might stop at nothing to get their way. "You think that is something," I responded, and then said, "You know how some years ago there were airplane and rail accidents, building collapses, and talk about implanting biochip IDs under our skin? Well, I have a tape of a Dr. Lawrence Dunegan describing a speech he heard in Pittsburgh in March 1969 by internationally renowned Dr. Richard L. Day, who have been National Medical Director of Planned Parenthood from 1965 to 1968 saying some rather startling things relevant to such incidents!
