1950-ongoing. EUROPE. As declassified U.S. government documents will later reveal, American spying and covert warfare agencies will run a heavily financed campaign throughout the 1950s and 1960s with the goal of creating a single European market and political structure. By amazing coincidence, it's exactly like the current European Union. Doubtless, the theory is that it's easier and cheaper for the boys in the back room to control one set of politicians and bureaucrats than twenty or thirty different sets. The instrument designed to bring this new utopian Europe about is the American Committee on United Europe (ACUE) which is dedicated to funding and directing the European federalist movement.
The first chairman of the ACUE is Wall Street lawyer, General William J. Donovan, former head of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the wartime predecessor to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). A memorandum, later declassified, bearing Donovan's signature and dated dated July 26, 1950 gives instructions for a campaign to promote a fully fledged European parliament. The vice chairman of ACUE is none other than Nazi shyster, Nazi war criminal escape organizer, Rockefeller front man and CIA Director-to-be Allen Dulles. The board of ACUE includes Walter Bedell Smith, the first director of the CIA, and a gang of current and former OSS and CIA agents and functionaries and various members and minions of the U.S. ruling class.
The documents, declassified in 2000, prove that the CIA front ACUE financed the European Movement, the most important federalist organization in the years following World War Two, providing more than half of its operating budget. Other organizations working towards a European Union, such as the European Youth Campaign, were entirely funded and controlled by the CIA. The Council of Europe, the European Coal and Steel Community and the proposed European Defence Community were all funded by the CIA's ACUE. Much of ACUE's own funding came directly from U.S. ruling class via the Rockefeller and Ford Foundations and from American business groups with close ties to the CIA.
1950-51: UNITED STATES. Robert Lovett, Nazi financier and prominent terror bombing advocate, whose most recent contribution to the nation has been as amateur psychiatric nurse to the mysteriously expired Secretary of "Defense" James Forrestal, is made Assistant Secretary of "Defense" and, a year later, will occupy Forrestal's former position as Secretary of "Defense". And they say there's no Santa Claus.
1950-52: PUERTO RICO. The Truman regime decides once and for all to destroy the Puerto Rican independence movement which is inconveniently trying to end the U.S. colonial occupation of the nation of Puerto Rico. U.S. Secretary of "Defense", Louis Johnson, travels to Puerto Rico and meets with U.S. military leaders and the U.S. puppet "governor" to plot the destruction of the movement led by Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos of the Puerto Rico Nationalist Party (PNP).
PNP agents in the governor's office learn of the plan and try to warn Puerto Ricans of the impending clampdown. Operating under the same guiding principles as the "free" press in the U.S., Puerto Rican newspapers in the U.S. colony refuse to carry the story. To get the message out, the PNP organizes a campaign of public meetings. Police stop a PNP caravan of cars near Panuelas. Four nationalists and two police die in the resulting firefight.
In what is allegedly the American revolutionary tradition, Albizu Campos calls on the people of Puerto Rico to take up arms to win their freedom from their colonial oppressors. Resistance fighters attack police headquarters in Jayuya, set fire to the building and destroy the occupation government offices in the town. They proclaim the Second Republic of Puerto Rico and raise the revolutionary flag. The U.S. launches a bombing campaign against Puerto Rico as National Guard troops advance against Puerto Ricans on the ground. Armed revolts break out in Arecibo, Mayaguez and Naranjito. In Utuado, U.S. forces massacre independence fighters who surrender to them. In San Juan, independence fighters attack the governor's palace. Police beseige Albizu Campos in his house for two days before the nationalists finally surrender.
In the aftermath of the uprising, the U.S. launches a reign of further oppression of the people of Puerto Rico. Three thousand Puerto Ricans are arrested, including virtually all known members of the PNP, and even many members of the reformist Puerto Rican Independence Party which has always rejected armed struggle against the American occupation. Police are issued blank arrest warrants to seize anyone they choose. The trials last for three years. Almost all of the accused are convicted and condemned to prison. In some cases, people are reportedly imprisoned simply because they had shouted "Viva Puerto Rico Libre!" and we can't be havin' none of that.
Occupation police, working with the FBI, develop a huge blacklist of independence supporters who, along with their families and employers are harassed and victimized for years. In 1988, when the blacklist is challenged in court, it is discovered to contain more than a hundred thousand files.
America's most vicious retribution is saved for Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos, who simply refuses to surrender his beliefs to the occupiers of his country. He is sentenced to seventy two years in prison for attempting to exercise his theoretical rights of free speech by making twelve pro-independence speeches. He is tortured by his American captors with massive doses of X-rays resulting in horrific radiation burns, a technique pioneered by a team of Nazi war criminals imported and hired for their invaluable skills by the U.S. government following World War Two.
1950: UNITED STATES. The U.S. Army conducts biological warfare experiments over San Francisco and its outskirts. Eleven people become ill and one dies.
1950: UNITED STATES. The staunch U.S. policy of ensuring that all of the bloodshed and mayhem happens somewhere else is violated by Puerto Rican independence fighters who take the armed struggle against the American occupation of their country to Washington, D.C. Oscar Collazo and Griselio Torresola attack the temporary residence of President Truman, who had ordered the bloody suppression of the Puerto Rican independence movement. Torresola is killed at the scene and Collazo is wounded. Although the U.S. mass media had done its best to suppress news of the uprising against the U.S. occupation of Puerto Rico and the vicious repression which followed, it could not ignore an armed attack in Washington.
1950: ALBANIA. The CIA fails in its attempt to overthrow the government of Enver Hoxha.
1950: COLOMBIA. The real Juan Valdezes of Colombia are driven from their farms when the U.S. dumps massively subsidized food products into Colombia in a conspiracy to bankrupt Colombia's food producers with the object of "freeing up" land and farm workers for the production of cash crops by American-based multinational corporations, most notably coffee and another very popular crop, coca, the basis of cocaine.
1950-ongoing: WORLDWIDE. George Orwell's grim novel of totalitarianism, 1984, and his satirical political novel, Animal Farm, describe all too well the mechanisms of oppression and distortion of the truth by the state and the realities of political power. Orwell was opposed to totalitarianism in all its forms, whether Stalinist, fascist or pseudo-democratic. Ironically, Orwell had unknowingly fallen into the clutches of the very propagandists and distorters of truth he vilified and satirized. His British publisher, Fredric Warburg, was secretly working for the CIA. Warburg would later become notorious for publishing and distributing a CIA propaganda magazine, Encounter, for one of the CIA's countless front organizations, the ironically named Congress for Cultural Freedom.
Following Orwell's death in 1950, Warburg persuades his widow to unwittingly sell the movie rights to 1984 and Animal Farm to the CIA's Office of Policy Coordination (OPC), a creation of Rockefeller cousin, Hitler Project kingpin and Nazi shyster cum CIA head, Allen Dulles. According to its secret charter, OPC's activities on behalf of the "free" world include propaganda, economic warfare, sabotage, demolition and subversion. Two of the CIA's Psychological Warfare Workshop staff obtain the screen rights to Orwell's novels. The head of the operation is none other than CIA operative Howard Hunt, who will later become infamous as a member of the Watergate gang of criminals. Hunt selects Louis De Rochemont to be the producer of the animated Animal Farm at Paramount. De Rochemont has considerable experience with propaganda, having created The March of Time series for Henry Luce and, during the Second World War, working with the U.S. Navy's propaganda film unit. To meet the CIA's objectives, the ending of Animal Farm is changed and the point of the story, that cruel capitalist farmers are no better masters than tyrannical Stalinist pigs, is destroyed.
The CIA's sanitized version of Animal Farm is distributed around the world by a CIA front, the U.S. "Information" Agency (USIA). The CIA then produces 1984 in Britain in 1954. Inevitably, Orwell's message is distorted and perverted by the CIA to suit the goals of the U.S. ruling class.
The CIA's Orwellian sabotage of two of the most powerful political works in literature is a masterstroke of pre-emptive mind control. As the psychological warfare experts at the CIA are only too aware, a successful movie, like television, can be seen by tens or hundreds of millions of people and, consisting of graphic images, is much more powerful and widely assimilated than the written word. By sabotaging the movie versions of 1984 and Animal Farm, the CIA effectively stopped the vast majority of Americans ever learning of the relevance of Orwell's writing to their own situation.
The role of the CIA in sabotaging Orwell's masterpieces is hidden for half a century. To the present day, many American school teachers use the CIA's movie version of 1984 to "teach" the novel, spoonfeeding young Americans "prolefeed" created by the CIA rather than the true, chilling and all too relevant message of Orwell's book.
1950: BAHAMAS. The U.S. tests biological weapons in the Bahamas, spraying toxic bacteria. Casualties are unknown.
1950: UNITED STATES. J. "Edna" Hoover attempts to block the publication of a book exposing many of the abuses and crimes being committed throughout the United States by Hoover personally and by the FBI in general. The book is written by Max Lowenthal, a former secretary of the National Commission On Law Enforcement. A mysterious burglary occurs at Lowenthal's house in which the highly-selective burglars are interested only in documents, not in jewelry and cash. Pressure is applied to the publisher by the FBI to bury the book. A smear campaign, complete with speeches in Congress inevitably labeling Lowenthal a communist, is conducted.
FBI documents uncovered later will reveal that an impassioned speech against Lowenthal delivered by Republican Congressman George Dondero was actually written by J. Edna herself. Freedom loving FBI agents pressure bookstores not to to carry the book. For thirty years, the FBI spies on and builds a file on Lowenthal and conducts illegal wiretaps against him.
1950: UNITED STATES. The man who, more than anyone else, gave the world Adolf Hitler and World War Two, Averell Harriman, becomes "special advisor" to President Harry Truman.
1950s-1960s: UNITED STATES. The Pentagon, in the always paramount interests of defending freedom, liberty and demockracy, assembles a massive criminal conspiracy which will go on for decades to spy on and harass American citizens under its Continental United States (CONUS) program. In violation of U.S. law and the Constitution, the Pentagon uses thousands of spies recruited from the U.S. Army to infiltrate "activist" groups and to steal confidential information inside the United States. Under CONUS, the Pentagon assembles and maintains files on more than one hundred thousand American citizens.
Always concerned with the defense of Americans' theoretical freedoms, the Supreme Court puts its stamp of approval on CONUS in 1972 with only Justice William O. Douglas dissenting. Douglas puts it succinctly: "This case is a cancer in our body politic."
1950-1965: WORLDWIDE. With the assistance of the CIA and the Pentagon, installing compliant dictators and overthrowing economic nationalists, American-based multinationals extract a fortune from the poorest regions of the world. While in Europe, the multinationals made only $5.5 billion while investing $8.1 billion during the fifteen years from 1950 to 1965, in hopelessly poor Latin America they invested $3.8 billion and strolled away with $11.2 billion in profits and, in starving Africa, they invested $5.2 billion and pulled out a stunning $14.3 billion in profits. It's just good business.
1950-1990s: UNITED STATES. Alcoholic narcotics addict cum Senator Joseph McCarthy kicks off his own campaign of commie-under-the-bed scare-mongering and witch hunts in the land of the free with a speech in West Virginia in which he makes the patently ludicrous claim that there are "250 known Communists in the State Department". Through systematic lies, distortion and blackmail, McCarthy will, over the coming years, play a major role in keeping the always useful Commie bogeyman alive as a tool to intimidate and render pliable the American public.
Listen you bastards, I just want you to know I've got a pailful of shit and I'm going to use it where it does me the most good.
speaking to reporters while in his cups
1950: UNITED STATES. Ten Hollywood screenwriters are sent to the American gulag for clinging to their theoretical Constitutional rights and refusing to participate in the anti-democratic witch hunt being conducted by the so-called House Un-American Activities Committee. It never seems to occur to anyone in the U.S. that even if McCarthy's endless lies were true and there really were Communists lurking behind every lamp post and bush that, in a democratic society, they would have every right to be there.
Like all demagogues from the tranvestite gay-baiting homosexual blackmailer and mob associate J. "Edna" Hoover to alcoholic drug abuser Rush Limbaugh, McCarthy does have his own dirty little secrets. Aside from being a pathetic drunk, he is a morphine addict, and his dealer is none other than Mellon family member Harry Anslinger, longtime head of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Narcotics.
The House Un-American Activities Committee interrogates Americans about their Communist connections, real and imaginary, and holds them in contempt they refuse to participate in the American Inquisition. HUAC distributes millions of pamphlets to keep Americans scared with titles such as "One Hundred Things You Should Know About Communism" and "Where Can Communists Be Found? Everywhere".
Supposed "liberals" often criticize the Committee but, in Congress, "liberals" and "conservatives" alike vote to fund the anti-democratic witch hunt year after year. By 1958, only a single member of the House of Representatives (James Roosevelt) votes against giving it money. Although Truman criticizes the Committee, his own Attorney General gives voice to the same paranoid fantasy which lies behind McCarthy's Inquisition: "There are today many Communists in America. They are everywhere, in factories, offices, butcher shops, on street corners, in private business, and each carries in himself the germs of death for society."
J. Edna and her troops supply vast amounts of illegally obtained and wildly inaccurate "information" to the Committee to assist in its persecution of American citizens. As usual, the FBI files are based almost entirely on gossip, innuendo and the word of informers with an ax to grind.
The scare campaign infects every corner of America: the message is that Americans must be very afraid, Communists lurk everywhere, waiting to steal all them great freedoms we got. We must, however, remain happily oblivious to the fact that the likes of J. Edna Hoover and Joe McCarthy have already stolen them. The mass media, as always, provide the bulk of the brainwashing, cleverly maintaining the fear level. National magazines run articles such as How Communists Get That Way and your editor's particular favorite, Communists Are After Your Child. The "liberal" New York Times in 1956 runs an editorial which states, "We would not knowingly employ a Communist party member in the news or editorial departments....because we would not trust his ability to report the news objectively or to comment on it honestly." Sounds like the ideal New York Times reporter.
An FBI informer's story about his alleged exploits as a Communist who became an FBI agent, I Led Three Lives, is serialized in five hundred newspapers and put on the idiot box for the greater delusion of the American public. A torrent of propaganda spews forth from Hollywood with titles like I Married a Communist and I Was a Communist for the FBI. Between 1948 and 1954, the Hollywood propaganda mill churns out more than forty commie scare films in order to keep Americans afraid.
Three million copies are sold of a book by Mickey Spillane , One Lonely Night, in which the hero, Mike Hammer says: "I killed more people tonight than I have fingers on my hands. I shot them in cold blood and enjoyed every minute of it...They were Commies....red sons-of-bitches who should have died long ago."
Almost every propaganda medium is used to keep Americans terrified of the commie bogeyman. Hundreds of "Red Scare" records are produced. Movies, television, radio, newspapers, magazines, books; all are used relentlessly to keep Americans scared and willing to tolerate the destruction of their civil rights and to foot the bill for hundreds of billions of dollars for ever more weapons
Joe, come here a minute
I got a red hot tip for you Joe
See that guy with the red suspenders
Driving that car with the bright red fenders
I know he's one of those heavy spenders
Get that Communist Joe
He's fillin' my gal with propaganda
And I'm scared she will meander
Don't want to take a chance that he'll land her
Get that Communist Joe
He's a most revolting character
And the fellas hate him so
But with the girls this character
Is a Comrade Romeo
Since my love he's sabotaging
And the law he has been dodging
Give him what he deserves, jailhouse lodging
Get that Communist Joe
(record released in 1954)
1950: UNITED STATES. Fear being the fuel which makes America go by making Americans sufficiently pliable to believe anything and consent to anything, it's important to make American children just as fearful as their parents. A children's comic strip hero, Captain America, says, "Beware, commies, spies, traitors and foreign agents! Captain America, with all loyal, free men behind him, is looking for you...."
One of the most insidious and vicious elements of the campaign is the farcical air raid drills to which American school children are ruthlessly exposed for years beginning in 1950. In some drills, a mock attack by the evil Soviets is signalled by sirens and children are forced to crouch beneath their desks with their eyes tightly closed to "prevent blindness" from nuclear blast until the "all clear" is given. In another permutation, a teacher, without warning, yells "Drop!" and the terrified children are expected to dive under their desks and kneel waiting to be incinerated by the filthy commies. Strangely enough, to date, there have been no documents released under the Freedom of Information Act which shed any light on the benefits to be gained by crouching under a desk during a nuclear war.
As a further assault on the minds of American children, in many school districts, children are issued with metal "dog tags" which are supposedly expected to survive a nuclear holocaust so that tiny bodies can be more readily identified in the smouldering ruins of Ourtown, USA.
I like the United States of America.1950: UNITED STATES. Nazi financier Prescott Bush runs for a Senate seat in Connecticut. An old Skull and Bones boy, just like his master race masters the Harrimans and the Rockefellers, Bush is supported wholeheartedly by Yale University. Not coincidentally, the American eugenics movement, which formed the basis of the Nazis' quest for an Aryan master race, is now centered at Yale. Bush is a Yale trustee and one of his former partners at the Brown Brothers, Harriman Bank in financing the Nazi takeover of Germany was none other than Lawrence Tighe, Yale's treasurer. Tighe was also a Connecticut director of the American Eugenics Society. The Society's medical advisor was eugenics advocate, Dr. Winternitz of Yale Medical School.
I like the way we all live without fear.
I like to vote for my choice, speak my mind, raise my voice,
Yes I like it here.
I like the United States of America.
I am thankful each day of the year.
For I can do as I please,
'Cause I'm free as the breeze,
Yes I like it here.
I like to climb to the top of the mountain so high,
Lift my head to the sky,
And say how grateful am I
For the way that I'm working, and helping, and giving,
And doing the things I hold dear.
Yes I like it, I like it, I like it here.
Not only was the American Eugenics Society itself headquartered at Yale, but many key elements of the eugenics movement had their facilities there too. The coercive psychiatry and sterilization advocates had made the Yale/New Haven Hospital and Yale Medical School their laboratories for hands-on practice in brain surgery and psychological experimentation on the inferior races. The Birth Control League, which long promoted ze "need" for eugenically planned births to purify ze race, was also located at Yale
The weekend before the election, renegade journalist Drew Pearson exposes Bush's long-standing connection to the re-born eugenics movement and Bush loses by about one thousand votes. Later revisions of the Bush family history will attempt to whitewash the Bushes' role in the eugenics movement as being all about simple birth control. Eugenics and ze quest for ze master race will never be mentioned.
1950: UNITED STATES. The U.S. ramps up its weapons of mass destruction program when the Ad Hoc Committee on Chemical, Biological, and Radiological Warfare recommends construction of a new biological warfare production facility, widespread field testing of germ warfare and an increase in germ warfare research. By fall, advanced testing begins at the Dugway Proving Grounds in Utah and a germ warfare production facility has been constructed at Pine Bluff Arsenal in Arkansas. By mid-1951, the U.S. is testing germ warfare agents at Eglin Air Force base in Florida.
1950-1953: UNITED STATES/CANADA. The US Army releases chemicals over six American and Canadian cities in tests designed to assess the dispersal patterns of chemical weapons. Some of the tests involve cadmium, a highly toxic metal.
1950: UNITED STATES. Dr. Joseph Mengele, sorry, Stokes, of the University of Pennsylvania deliberately infects two hundred female prisoners with viral hepatitis.
1950: UNITED STATES. The McCarran Internal Security Act sails through the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate. The Act authorizes government investigation of supposed "communist" action, "communist" front and "communist infiltrated" organizations in the land of the free. The bill requires that "suspect" groups in the greatest democracy the world has ever known must be registered with a Subversive Activities Control Board, which will, without due process, deny their members travel rights, the right to work in so-called "defense" plants, and the right to hold a government job. What a relief it is not to live in a repressive Commie dictatorship.
The Act mandates that foreign-born American citizens are subject to deportation and that recently-naturalized citizens are subject to having their citizenship taken away. Failure to register with the Gestapo, sorry, the government, will bring a $10,000 fine and five years in jail for each day of non-compliance. All information disseminated by targeted groups must carry the warning: "Disseminated by a Communist organization".
Among the tireless defenders of democracy, freedom and liberty who vote for bill are John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Lyndon Baines Johnson and their brother-in-arms, Nazi war criminal escape facilitator, Richard "I Am Not A Crook" Nixon.
Rather than defending the rights of Americans by opposing the anti-democratic and unconstitutional measures, what are laughably called "liberals" in the U.S. including Hubert Humphrey, almost wet themselves in their zeal to prove themselves "tough on communism". They propose a substitute measure by which the U.S. government would establish concentration camps in which Homeland inmates suspected of being "subversives" would be held without trial or due process any time the regime du jour declares an "internal security emergency". The concentration camp measure is incorporated into the Internal Security Act and the camps are, in fact, established in the land of the free, ready for use. The bill is not repealed until 1968.
1950s: SOUTHEAST ASIA. Following the usual pattern, the leaders of the "Nationalist Chinese" army, organized by the CIA to wage war against the government of China, become the opium barons of The Golden Triangle (parts of Burma, Thailand and Laos), the world's largest source of opium and heroin. Always eager to give a boost to private enterprise, Air America, the CIA's own airline, delivers the drugs all over Southeast Asia.
1950s: UNITED STATES. James Jesus Angleton, CIA counter-intelligence chief who, as an OSS operative, had arranged the escape of Mussolini's money man, Justo Valerio Borghese from Italian resistance fighters following World War Two, shows some photographs to John Weitz, another former OSS agent. The photographs show FBI Director J. "Edna" Hoover performing fellatio on his main squeeze, FBI Assistant Director Clyde Tolson. In 1967, Angleton shows the same photos to a CIA-connected electronics expert, Gordon Novel. According to Novel, the photos were used, among other things, to blackmail Hoover into complying with CIA directions regarding the "investigation" of the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
1950s: UNITED STATES. The U.S. carries out forced experiments on prisoners in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Unwitting victims are injected with plutonium, radium, uranium and other radioactive materials. In a letter, Colonel O. G. Haywood of ze Atomic Energy Commission writes, "It is desired that no document be released which refers to experiments with humans and might have adverse effect on public opinion or result in legal suits. Documents covering such work field should be classified secret."
1950-ongoing: UNITED STATES. The U.S. Public Health Service launches the Tuskegee Syphilis Study. Four hundred poor, uneducated black men with syphilis are identified in Tuskegee, Alabama. They are never told by the U.S. Public Health Service that they have syphilis nor are they given any treatment for it. They are, instead, monitored, as guinea pigs in an experiment. By 1969, one hundred of the men are dead through lack of treatment and, predictably, the disease has spread to the men’s families.
1950s: UNITED STATES. The CIA under Nazi shyster Allen Dulles secretly provides funding for the construction of a wing of Georgetown University Hospital in which to carry out clinical testing on individuals of biological and chemical warfare weapons. Dr. Charles F. Geschickter, a Georgetown doctor and cancer researcher, creates the Geschickter Fund for Medical Research to act as cover for the CIA financing, a fact which he reveals to Congress in 1977.
1950s: UNITED STATES. Swiss-based Sandoz, the drug company which had synthesized the hallucinogen lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), refuses a request from the CIA, which is getting very busy with its MKUltra mind control program, for several kilograms of the drug, sufficient for a hundred million doses, enough to send just about everyone in the United States on a trip.
Nazi shyster and war criminal escape organizer cum CIA Director Allen Dulles forges a criminal conspiracy with Eli Lilly and Company to produce the drug in violation of international patent agreements. The CIA and Eli Lilly thus become the first and largest illegal makers and distributors of LSD in the United States. Enquiring minds might well ask what the CIA did with a hundred million doses of acid.
1950-53: KOREA. Korea, which had been occupied by Japan for thirty-five years, was "liberated" after World War Two and divided into "North" Korea, a socialist dictatorship and "South" Korea, a fascist dictatorship occupied by the U.S. The U.S. puppet dictatorship of "South" Korea seizes power from locally controlled People’s Committees and reinstalls in local power the Korean ruling class who had willingly collaborated with the Japanese during the long colonial occupation and throughout World War Two. In many parts of "South" Korea, strong resistance by the Korean people leads to open rebellion against the U.S. puppet dictatorship of Syngman Rhee who is ruthless in suppressing dissent. Mass murder and torture are commonplace. The American puppet Rhee dictatorship slaughters hundreds of thousands of Koreans with the full knowledge and support of American military "advisers".
In 1950, Rhee boasts that he is going to attack "North" Korea. On June 25th, "North" Korean troops cross the 38th parallel, the artifical line dividing Korea in two, and attempt to re-unite Korea under a socialist government. The "invasion" is welcomed by most of the population of "South" Korea but bitterly opposed by the Rhee dictatorship and its puppetmasters, the United States. At the outbreak of war, the Rhee dictatorship carries out a long series massacres of anyone suspected of opposing it and slaughters tens of thousands of political prisoners held in its jails.
In a war supposedly intended to bring freedom to the Korean people, the U.S. then sets about systematically slaughtering them by the million and laying their country to waste. American war crimes and crimes against humanity in Korea almost beggar the imagination and are still being uncovered to this day. In the first three months of the war, the U.S. drops almost seventy million pounds of napalm on the people of Korea and carpet bombs Korean towns and cities on a massive scale. Literally thousands of small villages and their inhabitants are reduced to ash by the United States of America. The U.S. also uses phosphorous bombs against the people of Korea. During 1951, the U.S. drops an average of 70,000 gallons of napalm on Korea EVERY DAY. It may not be particularly good for the Koreans but it's really great for that bastion of freedom, the Dow Chemical Company.
Just when people thought the boom might be tapering off, the war in Korea set off a new boom. It's really a made-to-order situation to keep business at a high level.
"North" Korea is almost completely devastated by American carpet bombing with few buildings left standing. There seems little doubt that the U.S. used germ warfare against the Koreans in spite of the usual vehement denials. Compelling evidence of the use of biological weapons continues to be uncovered, as near Kwangju where a U.S. plane sprayed a powder or mist over villagers who then suffered skin discoloration and finally, hundreds of deaths.
The U.S. had a massive biological warfare program, based largely on the work of its favorite Japanese mass murderer and war criminal, General Shiro Ishi, head of Japan's infamous biological warfare program. More than twenty captured U.S. pilots confess to dropping germ warfare agents. Scenes of mass executions of civilians by the U.S. and by troops of its puppet dictatorship as American "advisers" look on and sometimes record the murders on film are still being uncovered. The major goal of the U.S. bombing campaign is the wholesale destruction of civilian infrastructure, a war crime under the Geneva Convention. Using conventional bombs and napalm, the U.S. destroys hydroelectric stations and irrigation projects throughout "North" Korea in a calculated attempt to starve the Koreans to death.
At No Gun Ri, U.S. troops massacre three hundred "South" Korean civilians, mainly women and children, who are hiding under a bridge after being driven from their villages by the U.S. The U.S. puppet dictatorship of "South" Korea obediently suppresses investigation of the massacre and, in the usual fashion, the U.S. government systematically lies about it for half a century. In 2003, a U.S. Air Force memo will be declassified which states, "The Army has requested that we strafe (machine gun) all civilian refugee parties that are noted approaching our positions. To date we have complied with the Army request in this respect."
In October, China enters the war on the side of "North" Korea after the U.S. ignores repeated warnings not to let its forces approach the Chinese border. Inevitably, this is labeled by the U.S. as Chinese imperialism. The American people are called upon to construct "an arsenal of freedom". Nice to know the propaganda boys in Washington can keep their puckish senses of humor even while slaughtering millions of people and burning babies alive. In the interests of freedom and liberty, the U.S. threatens China with the use of nuclear weapons.
By the time of the armistice in 1953, almost four million Koreans will have been slaughtered, the vast majority by the United States. About 30,000 Americans will have have been killed for a kill ratio of more than a hundred to one, a very satisfactory result for the boys in the back room no doubt. The number of Koreans injured, maimed, displaced, widowed and orphaned is many more millions. But the important thing, of course, is that "South" Korea is once again safe for a murderous U.S. puppet dictatorship which will torture, murder, terrorize and deny freedom to the people of "South" Korea for the rest of the twentieth century.
Mass murders by the U.S. puppet dictatorships of "South" Korea will continue, most notably the 1980 Kwangju Massacre, the dictatorship's reaction to widespread pro-democracy protests throughout Korea. With the full complicity of American political and military leaders, the "South" Korean dictatorship will massacre 2500 Koreans at Kwangju. Discovery of other massacres and atrocities carried out by the U.S. and its puppet dictatorship will continue to the present moment.
Over a period of three years or so....we burned down every town in North Korea and South Korea too.
unprosecuted war criminal
and mass murderer cum U.S. Air Force General
1950-1954: VIETNAM. The freedom-loving United States rejects naive requests from Ho Chi Minh for help in freeing Vietnam from its French colonial occupiers and oppressors. Ho is acting under the delusion that those who run the U.S. actually believe in freedom.
Ho and his troops had fought the Japanese tenaciously throughout World War Two while the French colonial occupiers and their wealthy Vietnamese collaborators so favored by the U.S. had welcomed the Japanese invaders and eagerly cooperated with them.
Ho, however, represents the interests of the people of Vietnam rather than the Michelin tire company and the Rockefellers, and so the U.S. rejects his requests for assistance and instead provides arms, cash and military "advisors" to the French to maintain their colonial grip on Vietnam. Ho is driven by the United States straight into the arms of the Chinese for support.
From 1950 to 1954, CIA officer Edward Lansdale mounts a conspiracy to destroy Ho, using the usual arsenal of CIA crimes and dirty tricks. In 1953, as the failure the CIA conspiracy becomes increasingly evident, the U.S. begins providing tanks and other heavy weapons to the French for use in suppressing the people of Vietnam. U.S. troops begin fighting alongside French colonial troops in an attempt to prevent the Vietnamese expelling the French from their country.
1950-61: BRAZIL. One-time dictator Getulio Vargas is democratically elected president of Brazil replacing Gaspar Dutra, a U.S. puppet who had devoted his presidency to protecting American business interests. Vargas launches a dramatic program of economic development in Brazil, fully recognizing workers' rights and developing Brazilian resources for the benefit of Brazilians, a radical and dangerous concept. In 1953, he nationalizes Brazil's considerable oil industry, creating the state-owned company Petrobras.
In 1954, he is found conveniently dead, the result of an apparent suicide. A note is found accusing "imperialism and its internal accomplices" of blocking his efforts to govern Brazil for the benefit of Brazilians. He is succeeded by Juscelino Kubitschek who immediately re-opens Brazil to unrestricted exploitation by foreign corporations, largely American, and all is once again right with the world.
1950-56: HAITI. The United States supports the overthrow of the democratically-elected government of progressive black President Dumarais Estimé. Estimé's government is the first in the twentieth century which truly represents Haiti's black majority and we can't be havin' none of that. Estimé is duly overthrown by Colonel Paul Magloire, from the U.S.-favored mulatto class. He's black but he ain't too black. With the support of the U.S., Magloire maintains his grip as dictator until 1956 when he flees into comfortable exile taking most of Haiti's state treasury with him.
1950: UNITED STATES. With corporations having made a fortune during World War Two while wages were largely frozen and then making even bigger fortunes when, after the war, even more weapons are magically needed, labor wants a fairer share of the pie. In 1946, President Truman forestalled a nationwide rail strike by seizing control of the railways and threatening to draft striking workers into the military. He made the same threat against striking mine workers, rather strange behavior in a free country. In 1950, rail workers again threaten to strike and Truman yet again rolls out the totalitarian club, seizing control of the railways and putting them in the hands of the U.S. Army.
1950-61. GERMANY. The CIA orchestrates a wide-ranging campaign of sabotage, dirty tricks and psychological warfare , known these days as terrorism, against "East" Germany, a major factor leading to the building of the Berlin Wall in 1961. The U.S. also creates a secret civilian army in West Germany, which draws up a list of Social Democrats, communists and various other inconvenient individuals in "West" Germany who are to be “put out of the way” (translation into English: murdered) if the Soviet Union invades.
1950s: UNITED STATES. The Edgewood Arsenal in Maryland, one of the U.S. Army's leading chemical warfare centers, uses its team of in-house Nazi war criminals to conduct experiments on more than seven thousand American soldiers. Using "research" documents from Auschwitz as their guide, they replicate on American soldiers the poison gas experiments conducted on concentration camp inmates by the Standard Oil/IG Farben consortium in the 1940s.
1950-60: UNITED STATES. The CIA attempts to get Congress to authorize fifteen thousand CIA-sponsored "immigrants" into the U.S. Congress authorizes five hundred. The CIA ignores the Congressional limitation and spends more than one hundred million dollars of U.S. taxpayers' money illegally importing "immigrants" into the U.S. through 1960. The CIA-favored "immigrants" are, of course, Nazi war criminals whose skills and experience are eagerly sought by the U.S. government.
1950-60: UNITED STATES. The U.S. Army convinces Congress to pass the Lodge Act allowing 12,500 foreign nationals to enlist in the U.S. Army for five years in return for U.S. citizenship. Most who participate are blameless citizens of other countries but the program provides excellent cover for the CIA to import a huge number of Nazi war criminals, ex-Gestapo goons and Nazi collaborators of various stripes into the U.S. and to obtain American citizenship for them via their military service. In a later study, the U.S. Justice department will estimate that U.S. government agencies, in total, imported nearly ten thousand known Nazi war criminals into the U.S. in the years following World War Two.
1950-present: AFRICA. The U.S. provides arms and military training to both sides in wars between African nations, under four different programs, involving virtually every nation on the continent. In the period 1991 to 1995 alone, William "Wet Willy" Clinton will supply weapons and military training to 50 of the 53 countries in Africa which makes a change from ejaculating on the staff, I suppose. Of the twelve African nations at war in 2004, eleven are armed by the U.S. The systematic destabilization of Africa by U.S. armaments and training is documented in the New York-based World Policy Institute’s book, “Deadly Legacy”.
The state of endless warfare promoted by the U.S. destabilizes the continent, makes any attempt at effective government or economic progress impossible and conveniently leaves most African countries in the hands of brutal dictators who readily sell out their countries’ resources, particularly oil and minerals, to the transnationals in return for being allowed to steal massive personal fortunes while the citizens of their countries die in the millions of starvation and disease. And, you get to sell billions of dollars of weaponry to countries which can't afford it. It's a win-win situation.
Africa is one of the world's great storehouses of valuable and strategically important minerals. The continent has 90% of the world’s cobalt, 90% of the platinum, 40% of the gold, 98% of the chromium, 64% of the manganese and 33% of the uranium. As of 2003, 18% of U.S. oil will come from Africa compared to 25% from the Persian Gulf.
Since 1950, more than five million Africans have been killed as a direct result of warfare and twenty million or more have died as a result of war-related starvation and disease.
1950s-1960: UNITED STATES. In experiments chillingly reminiscent of Nazi concentration camp "medical" atrocities, Dr. Saul Krugman of New York University conducts studies of hepatitis at the Willowbrook State School, an institution for severely mentally retarded children. Krugman and his staff systematically infect newly arrived children between the ages of three and eleven with strains of the virus obtained from the feces of Willowbrook hepatitis patients in order to study the natural history, effects and progression of the disease.
The Journal of the American Medical Association actually praises Krugman’s "judicious use of human beings." Franz Inglefinger, who will later become the editor of the New England Journal of Medicine, says, "By being allowed (sic) to participate in a carefully supervised study and by receiving the most expert attention available for a disease of basically unknown nature, the patients themselves benefited......How much better to have a patient with hepatitis accidentally or deliberately acquired under the guidance of a Krugman, than under the care of a rights-minded zealot."
Is is not known if Krugman and Inglefinger enterered the U.S. after World War Two under Nazi shyster Allen Dulles' Nazi war criminal importation program, Operation Paperclip.
1950s: UNITED STATES. The McCarthy witch hunts and manufactured commie-under-the bed hysteria aren't just a technique for whipping up fear among Americans, they are also a very effective means of silencing critics of government repression, civil rights activists and those who propose real democracy in the United States. One of the most high profile victims is black singer-actor Paul Robeson, who is that most dangerous of all things, an uppity nigger who is immensely talented, charismatic, brilliant, articulate, has a worldwide following and, here's the worst part, who believes in freedom, liberty and democracy and ain't afraid to say so.
Robeson, the son of an escaped slave, won an academic scholarship and was only the third black person in history to attend Rutgers University. Although tormented and beaten (his fingernails were pulled out by freedom loving Rutgers football players) Robeson persisted and became the greatest athlete in the school's history with fifteen varsity letters and, in football, was twice named a first team All-American. Robeson's academic performance was equally impressive, graduating as valedictorian. From 1920 to 1923, Robeson helped pay his way through Columbia law school by working as an athlete and a performer. He played professional football in the American Professional Football Association (later the NFL) and began to appear on stage. He graduated in 1923 and was hired by a law firm in New York but quit when a white secretary refused to take dictation from him because of the color of his skin.
Robeson became a major star of the stage and an internationally idolized concert performer. After moving to England in the late 1920s, he became a widely-acclaimed motion picture actor with a string of successes. When the U.S. entered World War Two, Robeson was one of the first performers to appear on behalf of the U.S. war effort.
However, following the war, Robeson, becomes an outspoken critic of the oppression of blacks and other minorities in the United States and even goes so far as to praise the Soviet Union, recently revived as the target of U.S. demonization programs. He is targeted by the McCarthy Inquisition and, after standing on his rights as a citizen of a theoretical democracy, and refusing to sign an affidavit that he is not a Communist, the U.S. government seizes Robeson's passport and, with it, his freedom to travel and speak outside the United States. When Robeson and his lawyers meet with officials at the U.S. State Department and ask why it is "detrimental to the interests of the United States Government" for him to travel abroad, they are told that his frequent criticism of the treatment of blacks in the United States should not be heard in foreign countries.
Robeson is not the only U.S. citizen held in the American gulag. Other Americans who take all that bullshit about freedom and liberty and the concept of free speech a bit too seriously include the writers Howard Fast and Albert Kahn, W.E.B. DuBois and Richard Morford. They are likewise imprisoned in the U.S. and thereby silenced internationally.
Although, at the time, U.S. citizens did not require a passport to travel to or from Canada, the State Department, in the interests of silencing Robeson, prevents him from going even there, using supposed "emergency" legislation passed during World War One. In a calculated act of defiance, American and Canadian labor unions organize a Robeson concert at the International Peace Arch on the border between Washington state and the Canadian province of British Columbia on May 18, 1952. Robeson stands on the back of a flat bed truck on the American side of the border and performs a concert for a crowd on the Canadian side, variously estimated at between 20,000 and 40,000 people. Robeson performs a second concert at the Peace Arch in 1953.
During the period of Robeson's incarceration in America, his recordings and films are withdrawn from circulation by various freedom loving corporations. From then until the late 1970's, it will be virtually impossible to hear Robeson on records or on the radio, or to see any of his highly acclaimed and successful films. Just to put the Orwellian icing on the cake of oppression, history is re-written and Robeson's name is magically struck from the roster of the 1917 and 1918 college All-America football teams.
Robeson's imprisonment in the American gulag ends in 1958 when his passport is returned to him after the U.S. Supreme Court goes trembling out on a limb and actually upholds, for once, the rights of an individual American, ruling that the government had no right to deny a passport or require any citizen to sign an affidavit because of his political beliefs. Wow, really?
Shortly after being released from America, Robeson once again moves to England, re-establishing his international fame and speaking out fearlessly on behalf of the oppressed.
1950-ongoing: UNITED STATES. In 1950, the total U.S. federal budget is about $40 billion of which about $12 billion goes to the military. With carefully manufactured fear of commies under the bed gripping the nation, by 1960 the military takes an astonishing two thirds of the entire federal budget of $60 billion. By 1962, based on a series of manufactured and completely false scares about Soviet military build-ups, inlcuding a fabricated "bomber gap" and a fabricated "missile gap," the United States has built nuclear weapons with the explosive equivalent of 1,500 Hiroshima-size bombs, enough to destroy every major city in the world, many more than once.
The equivalent, in fact, of ten pounds of TNT for every man, woman, and child on Earth. To deliver these bombs, the U.S. has more than fifty intercontinental ballistic missiles, eighty missiles on nuclear submarines, ninety missiles on stations overseas, 1,700 bombers capable of reaching the Soviet Union, 300 nuclear-ready fighter-bombers on aircraft carriers and 1,000 land-based supersonic fighters able to carry atomic bombs. Sure do take a lot of hardware to make you free, don't it?
Although this was all supposedly due to the evil Soviets having more bombs than us, in reality the USSR had only between fifty and a hundred intercontinental ballistic missiles and fewer than two hundred long-range bombers at the time but, hey, somebody made a shitload of money building all them bombs and planes and missiles and it's real good business.
By 1970, the U.S. military budget will have grown to $80 billion and the merchants of death will be making ever more fantastic profits with two thirds of the expenditure going to about a dozen giant corporations. Under the guise of national security, the vast majority of the contracts given to the weapons makers are not even subject to competitive bidding. And, as the biggest merchant of death of them all, John D. Rockefeller, famously said, "Competition is sin."
