Bill McKibben was instrumental along with NRDC  and U.S. citizens to stop the Canadian pipeline through the U.S. for now.  Another battle that is not over yet !

Bill Moyers has brought great journalism to us on and off through the years on PBS.  One of his many great pieces was The Secret Government, The constitution in crisis, regarding the lies we have been told about the wars we have been in, and the overthrowing of heads of state up until the late 80’s.  Was The cold war (started 1945) a catalyst or opportunity for the covert creation of the NSA  and CIA ?  The U.S. started so many secret operations  before they became wars, the Korean war (1950) then followed the Vietnam war (1959) and later the Iran Contra ( 1985) affair with  Oliver North .

In Iran (1953) The U.S. CIA orchestrated the removal of Mohammad Mosaddegh because he wanted Iran to control oil in their country not the British companies within Iran.

Guatemala (1954) Jacobo Arbenz was removed, replaced by colonel Castillo Armas  because he gave the peasants of his country land to live on that the United Fruit Company owned.

Cuba (1961), we wanted to remove Castro, assassinate him, our government turned to the mob for hire and then in 1963 President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.

Watergate (1970)

Chile (1973) Salvador Allende was booted out of presidency by U.S.

Allen Dulles and his brother John were a big influence in carrying out the orders for those many secret attacks.  What do you think about the CIA, NSA acting as a separate entity, above the law, accessing what they think other countries should be doing, benefiting the bottom line?

Look at where we are today, still removing heads of state only to put others who are far worse in their place.  The citizens of those countries are outraged, they have lived under a certain rule and then our covert ops orchestrate an up-rise, removing  their ruler by  replacing him with a real dictatorship, killing their people, for our own agenda.  They claim we go in to these countries to make them democratic, BS,  they end up worse off.  Hopefully we still question the wars and the illegal behaviors that go against our Constitution.  I’m looking forward to the day we (citizens) stop the wars and  hold our people accountable for violating their own U.S. Laws.
