    The interviewer states his website name at the end but I couldn’t understand what he said. :)
    Besides that, I’m always interested in what Russ has to say. Everyone who reads Family of Secrets has the same great things to say about it. I’m not too far in yet, due to time constraints. I’m reading about Poppy right now, and it’s very disturbing to watch another Bush run for office.
    I’m sure everyone that knows what’s really going on won’t be voting in that election, there’s no way you can, which leaves the people who have bought the lies as the main voting block.

    American exceptionalism is a myth.

    “The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous
    he cannot believe it exists.” Former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.

    Experts in psychology and sociology tell us that many politicians share traits with serial killers. Specifically, the Los Angeles Times noted in 2009:

    Using his law enforcement experience and data drawn from the FBI’s behavioral analysis unit, Jim Kouri collected a series of personality traits common in two professions.

    Kouri, who’s a vice president of the National Assn. of Chiefs of Police, has assembled traits such as superficial charm, an exaggerated sense of self-worth, glibness, lying, lack of remorse and manipulation of others.

    These traits, Kouri points out in his analysis, are common to psychopathic serial killers.

    But — and here’s the part that may spark some controversy and defensive discussion — these traits are also common to American politicians. (Maybe you already suspected.)

    Yup. Violent homicide aside, our elected officials often show many of the exact same character traits as criminal nut-jobs, who run from police but not for office.

    Kouri notes that these criminals are psychologically capable of committing their dirty deeds free of any concern for social, moral or legal consequences and with absolutely no remorse.

    “This allows them to do what they want, whenever they want,” he wrote. “Ironically, these same traits exist in men and women who are drawn to high-profile and powerful positions in society especially political officeholders.”

    “While many political leaders will deny the assessment regarding their similarities with serial killers and other career criminals, it is part of a psychopathic profile that may be used in assessing the behaviors of many officials and lawmakers at all levels of government.”

    Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen
    and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal
    information about the citizen… ZBIGNIEW BRZENZINSKI

    Should we then wonder at 1.3 million Iraqi human beings murdered by Walker Bush, its no wonder the Journalist threw a shoe at the man. Its unfortunate it wasn’t a hand grenade, it might have dissuaded the pinky running for office now, not to.

    Fellow Americans are slowly waking up and realizing the death machine is now being turned on them by the same ILK that did it to so many countless people and countries. Unfortunately, there is no one to save us, because we stood by and often abetted them killing so many innocent people in the name of TERROR which they sponsored and promoted.

    The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people, but, the
    silence over that, by the good people. Martin Luther King

      YES…like large pot of slow, simmering and soon to be boiling water, where and when the dog or frog never jumps out from the steady and slowly increasing temperature…that’s what been happening here since, at least (!) 11.22/63, and certainly since then as the “temp” of the water has increased ever so steadily and stealthfully with calculated actions and the real players and their monions and operatives…and also their media lap-dogs and mouth-pieces….from David T.
