Harry S. (Shippe/Solomon) Truman

"I never give them hell.
I just tell the truth and they think it's hell."

Secrecy and a free, democratic government don't mix.

My early choice in life was either to be a piano player in a whorehouse or a politician. And to tell the truth, there is hardly any difference.

There is no more fundamental axiom of American freedom than the familiar statement:

In a free country we punish men for the crimes they commit but never for the opinions they have.

Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear.

Psychological Strategy Board

December 30, 1949 Policy for Asia, National Security Council document 48/2 states Japan would become Asia's industrial economy, fired by US companies. Washington would 'connect up' other Asian economies to Japan's industrial machine and as markets for Japanese goods to isolate and contain China.

April 14, 1950 Dean Acheson's top secret policy is laid out in National Security Council document 68 calling for an enormous US military encircling the globe to protect 'war-making capabilities' of its allies, a euphemism referring to countries with resources that American industry needs to manufacture arms to contain communism worldwide.

NSC-68 called for a military capable of: defending the Western Hemisphere and 'essential' allied areas so that their war-making capabilities can be developed; providing and protecting a mobilization base while the offensive forces required for victory are being built up; conducting offensive operations to destroy vital elements of the Soviet war-making capacity, and to keep the enemy off balance until the full offensive strength of the United States and its allies can be brought to bear; defending and maintaining the lines of communication and base areas necessary to the execution of the above tasks; and providing such aid to allies is as essential to the execution of their role in the above tasks.

April 4, 1951 Psychological Strategy Board is established by a Harry S. Truman in a Presidential Directive.

"Directive to: the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, the Director of CI: It is the purpose of this directive to authorize and provide for the more effective planning, coordination and conduct, within the framework of approved national policies, of psychological operations.

There is hereby established a Psychological Strategy Board responsible, within the purposes and terms of this directive, for the formulation and promulgation, as guidance to the departments and agencies responsible for psychological operations, of over-all national psychological objectives, policies and programs, and for the coordination and evaluation of the national psychological effort.

The Psychological Strategy Board will report to the National Security Council on the Psychological Strategy Board's activities and on its evaluation of the national psychological operations, including implementation of approved objectives, policies, and programs by the departments and agencies concerned.

The Psychological Strategy Board shall be composed of:

a. The Undersecretary of State, the Deputy Secretary of Defense, and the Director of CI, or, in their absence, their appropriate designees;

b. An appropriate representative of the head of each such other department or agency of the Government as may, from time to time, be determined by the Board.

The Psychological Strategy Board shall designate one of its members as Chairman. A representative of the Joint Chiefs of Staff shall sit with the Psychological Strategy Board as its principal military adviser in order that the Board may ensure that its objectives, policies and programs shall be related to approved plans for military operations...".

The director and architect of the Psychological Strategy Board was Gordon Gray. Henry Kissinger was Gordon Gray's consultant. Henry Kissinger was also the paid political consultant to Rockefeller family. Gordon Gray, Henry Kissinger, and Rockefeller were members of the Council on Foreign Relations. Gordon Gray served in the administrations of Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford. Gordon Gray was heir to the R. J. Reynolds tobacco fortune and President of the University of North Carolina. Gordon Gray, a Yale alumni, was touted as a broadcast and publication media "specialist."

Dwight D. Eisenhower signed Presidential Executive Order 10483 replacing the Psychological Strategy Board with the Operations Coordinating Board.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
