Congress insiders: Above the law?

Congress Cashes in on Insider Trading

How Congress Quietly Overhauled Its Insider-Trading Law

"Washington's a dangerous place." - Jack Abramoff

"Executives are in the business world for themselves first, and public trading of companies' stocks is a thinly disguised mechanism to allow executives and directors to profit from inside knowledge and favors." - Danila Oder

"Downtowns were once collections of local businesses that lured us with claims of uniqueness:

"Try our homemade pies," their signs read, or "Best jazz selection in town."

Today, those signs have been replaced by familiar corporate logos that make precisely the opposite claim, promising us the same goods arranged in the same way as they are in every other place.

The banks and burritos and baristas on one city block are replicated on the next — and in all the malls, in all the cities, in all the states.

Americans can drive from one ocean to the other, stopping every day for the same hamburger and every evening at the same hotel.

Traveling in a straight line is no longer much different than traveling in a circle." - Daniel Gilbert

Moving regulation of corporations from government to the market immunizes corporations to the effects of citizens' participation in the political process and leaves their control to an institution where one dollar - not one person - equals one vote !

The State of the Union is complete control of the federal government by interlocking corporate boards of directors of the Soulless Reptilian Money Changers.

Central Intelligence Agency Timeline

Overthrowing Governments 101, CIA Coups

operation paperclip


While other Federal agencies are hunting down Nazi war criminals for arrest, the US intelligence community is smuggling them into America, unpunished, for their use against the Soviets.

The most important of these is Reinhard Gehlen, Hitler's master spy who had built up an intelligence network in the Soviet Union.

With full US blessing, he creates the "Gehlen Organization," a band of refugee Nazi spies who claim to reactivate their networks in Russia.

These include SS intelligence officers Alfred Six and Emil Augsburg (who massacred Jews in the Holocaust), Klaus Barbie (the "Butcher of Lyon"), Otto von Bolschwing (the Holocaust mastermind who worked with Eichmann) and SS Colonel Otto Skorzeny (a personal friend of Hitler's).

The Gehlen Organization supplies the US with its only intelligence on the Soviet Union for the next ten years, serving as a bridge between the abolishment of the OSS and the creation of the CIA.

Much of the "intelligence" the former Nazis provide is bogus.

Gehlen inflates Soviet military capabilities at a time when Russia is still rebuilding its devastated society, in order to inflate his own importance to the Americans (who might otherwise punish him).

1947 Harry S. Truman requests military aid to Greece to support right-wing forces fighting communist rebels.

For the rest of the Cold War, Washington and the CIA will back notorious Greek leaders with deplorable human rights records.

Truman signs the National Security Act of 1947, creating the Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Council.

The CIA is accountable to the president through the National Security Council - there is no democratic or congressional oversight.

Its charter allows the CIA to "perform such other functions and duties as the National Security Council may from time to time direct."

This opens the door to covert action and dirty tricks.

1948 Reinhard Gehlen almost convinces the Americans that war is imminent, and the West should make a preemptive strike.

In the 50s he produces a fictitious "missile gap."

To make matters worse, the Russians have thoroughly penetrated the Gehlen Organization with double agents, undermining the very American security that Gehlen is supposed to protect.

CIA recreates a covert action wing, innocuously called the Office of Policy Coordination, led by Wall Street lawyer Frank Wisner.

According to its secret charter, its responsibilities include "propaganda, economic warfare, preventive direct action, including sabotage, antisabotage, demolition and evacuation procedures; subversion against hostile states, including assistance to underground résistance groups, and support of indigenous anti-communist elements in threatened countries of the free world."

CIA corrupts democratic elections in Italy, when Italian communists threaten to win the elections.

The CIA buys votes, broadcasts propaganda, threatens and beats up opposition leaders, infiltrates and disrupts their organizations.

It works - the communists are defeated.

1949 CIA creates its first major propaganda outlet, Radio Free Europe.

Over the next several decades, its broadcasts are so blatantly false that it is considered illegal to publish transcripts of them in the US.

That changes in July 2, 2012 when it becomes legal for federal government agencies to engage in propaganda.

US Govt Legalizes Operation Mockingbird

late 40s CIA begins recruiting American news organizations and journalists to become spies and disseminators of propaganda.

The effort is headed by Frank Wisner, Allen Welsh Dulles, Richard Helms and Philip Graham.

Graham is publisher of The Washington Post, a major CIA player.

Eventually, the CIA's media assets will include elements within ABC, NBC, CBS, Time, Newsweek, Associated Press, United Press International, Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Scripps-Howard, Copley News Service and more.

By the CIA's own admission, at least 25 organizations and 400 journalists will become CIA assets.

CIA Mind Control Secrets MK Ultra & Brainwashing Interview

The CIA’s Plans for a Drugged & Debilitated USA

CIA War On Human Consciousness

1953 CIA begins experiments in mind control.

LSD and other drugs are given to American subjects without their knowledge and against their will, causing several to commit suicide.

Funded in part by the Rockefeller and Ford foundations, research includes propaganda, brainwashing, public relations, advertising, hypnosis, and other forms of suggestion.

Mind altering projects go under the code names of Project Chatter, Project Bluebird, Project Artichoke, Project MKNAOMI, MKUltra, and MKDelta.

Cryptonym: MKNAOMI

Project MKNAOMI is a joint project between the CIA and the Army's Special Operations Division involving the use of chemical and biological agents for a variety of purposes including both incapacitation and elimination.

Items developed range from "attaché cases rigged to disseminate an agent in the air; a cigarette rigged to disseminate an agent when lighted; a fountain pen dart launcher; an engine head bolt designed to release an agent when heated; a fluorescent light starter to activate the light and then release an agent …"

The CIA and Army spend $26,501,446 "testing" LSD, code name EA 1729, and other chemical agents.

Contracts go out to forty-eight different institutions for testing.

The CIA conceals their participation by contracting to various colleges, hospitals, prisons, mental hospitals, and private foundations.

"No physical examination of the subject is required prior to the administration of LSD.

A doctor need not be present.

Doctors might be called for in the hope they make a diagnosis of mental breakdown which would be useful in discrediting the subject of CIA interest."

Richard Helms, CIA Director, argues that administering drugs, including poisoned LSD, to individuals who are unwitting is necessary as this is the only realistic method of understanding the capability of the intended operational use to influence human behavior as the operational targets would certainly be unwitting.

Individuals are unwittingly dosed with toxic chemicals.

New York State Psychiatric Institute is granted the first known contract for research into psychochemical drugs.

The purpose is to determine the psychological effect of psychological chemical agents on human subjects.

These subjects are given precursors of LSD and mescaline.

Other chemicals that are tested, which could be distributed at a later date included morphine, demerol, seconal, scopolamine, ditan, atrophine, psilocybin, BZ (benzilate), atrophine substitutes, dimethyltryptamine, chlorpromazine, LSD with Dibenzyline (blocking agents), LSM (Lysergic acid morpholide), LSD like compounds and various chemical glycolate agents.

Agents are then enlisted to harass the test subjects:

"Gather information on their immorality. Show them as scurrilous and depraved. Call attention to their habits and living conditions. Explore every possible embarrassment. Send in women and sex, break up marriages. Have members arrested on marijuana charges. Investigate personal conflicts or animosities between them. Send articles to the newspapers showing their depravity. Use narcotics and free sex to entrap. Use misinformation to confuse and disrupt. Get records of their bank accounts. Obtain specimens of handwriting. Provoke target groups into rivalries that may result in death."

Newly Declassified Memos Reveal Britain
Pushed US to Organize 1953 Iran Coup

Overthrowing Governments 101, CIA Coups

Sixty years on, CIA finally admits role in Iran coup

It Was the First Time the CIA Overthrew a Government

1953 CIA funds the overthrow of the democratically elected Mohammed Mossadegh in a military coup, after he threatens to nationalize British oil.

The CIA replaces him with a dictator, the Shah of Iran, whose secret police, SAVAK, is as brutal as the Gestapo.


CIA funds the overthrow of the democratically elected Jacob Arbenz in a military coup.

Arbenz has threatened to nationalize the Rockefeller-owned United Fruit Company, in which CIA Director Allen Welsh Dulles also owns stock.

Arbenz is replaced with a series of right-wing dictators whose bloodthirsty policies will kill over 100,000 Guatemalans in the next 40 years.

1954-1958 Edward G. Lansdale spends four years trying to overthrow the communist government of North Vietnam, using all the usual dirty tricks.

The CIA also attempts to legitimize a tyrannical puppet regime in South Vietnam, headed by Ngô dình Diem.

These efforts fail to win the hearts and minds of the South Vietnamese.

The Diem government is opposed to true democracy, land reform and poverty reduction measures.

The continuing failure of the CIA results in escalating American intervention, and culminates in the Vietnam War.

1956 Radio Free Europe incites Hungary to revolt by broadcasting Khruschev's Secret Speech, in which he denounces Stalin.

It also hints that American aid will help the Hungarians fight.

This aid fails to materialize.

Hungarians launch a doomed armed revolt inviting a major Soviet invasion.

The conflict kills 7,000 Soviets and 30,000 Hungarians.

1957-1973 CIA carries out approximately one coup per year trying to nullify Laos' democratic elections.

The problem is the Pathet Lao, a leftist group with enough popular support to be a member of any coalition government.

In the late 50s, the CIA even creates an "Armee Clandestine" of Asian mercenaries to attack the Pathet Lao.

After the CIA's army suffers numerous defeats, the US starts bombing, dropping more bombs on Laos than all the US bombs dropped in World War II.

A quarter of all Laotians will eventually become refugees, many living in caves.

Bombing Missions Over Laos From 1965-1973

1959 Military intelligence helps "Papa Doc" Duvalier become dictator of Haiti.

He creates his own private police force, the "Tonton Macoutes," who terrorize the population with machetes.

CIA Document 1035-960: Foundation of a Weaponized Term

1964 CIA-backed military coup overthrows the democratically elected government of Joao Goulart of Brazil.

The junta that replaces it will, in the next two decades, become one of the most bloodthirsty in history.

General Castelo Branco will create Latin America's first death squads, or bands of secret police who hunt down "communists" for torture, interrogation and murder.

Often these "communists" are no more than Branco's political opponents.

Later it is revealed that the CIA trains the death squads.


Sukarno leads Indonesia in its struggle for independence from the Netherlands and makes the takeover of Western New Guinea a focus of his continuing struggle against Dutch imperialism.

Sukarno, the first President of Indonesia (1945 to 1967), forges a fragile balance of power between the military, political Islam, communists, and nationalists that underlay his "Guided Democracy".

The CIA has been trying to eliminate Sukarno since 1957, using everything from attempted assassination to sexual intrigue and is involved in the "training" of over 1,200 officers, "including senior military figures," by the US military.

On the dawn of 1 October 1965, six of Indonesia's most senior army generals are kidnapped and murdered by the "30 September Movement".

The 30 September Movement consisted of members of the Presidential Guards, Brawidjaja Division, and Diponegoro Division, under the command of a Lieutenant-Colonel Untung bin Sjamsuri, a known communist sympathizer who participated in the 1948 Partai Komunis Indonesia rebellion.

The 30 September Movement takes control of the only radio station and broadcasts a statement declaring the kidnappings are meant to protect Sukarno from a coup attempt by CIA influenced generals.

His successor, General Suharto, goes on to massacre between 500,000 to 1 million civilians accused of being "communist."

A popular rebellion breaks out in the Dominican Republic, promising to reinstall Juan Bosch as the country's elected leader.

The revolution is crushed when US Marines land to uphold the military regime by force.

In Greece the king is pressured and removes George Papandreous as prime minister.

Papandreous has failed to vigorously support US interests in Greece.

In Congo (Zaire) a CIA-backed military coup installs Mobutu Sese Seko as dictator.

The hated and repressive Mobutu exploits his desperately poor country.


The Ramparts Affair

Ramparts begins a series of unprecedented anti-CIA articles.

Among their scoops: the CIA has paid the University of Michigan $25 million dollars to hire "professors" to train South Vietnamese students in covert police methods.

MIT and other universities have received similar payments.

Ramparts also reveals that the National Students' Association is a CIA front.

Students are sometimes recruited through blackmail and bribery, including draft deferments.

1967 CIA-backed military coup overthrows the government of Greece two days before the elections.

The favorite to win was George Papandreous, the liberal candidate.

During the next six years, the "reign of the colonels" - backed by the CIA - will usher in the widespread use of torture and murder against political opponents.

When a Greek ambassador objects to Lyndon Johnson about US plans for Cypress, Johnson tells him: "Fuck your parliament and your constitution."

PHOENIX program - The CIA helps South Vietnamese agents identify and murder alleged Viet Cong leaders operating in South Vietnamese villages.

According to a 1971 congressional report, this operation kills about 20,000 "Viet Cong."

1968 Operation CHAOS - The CIA has been illegally spying on American citizens since 1959, but with Operation CHAOS, Lyndon Johnson dramatically boosts the effort.

The CIA wants to keep him alive for interrogation, but the Bolivian government executes him to prevent worldwide calls for clemency.

notorious CIA torturer Dan Mitrione

"If you plan to do evil, you will be lost." - Proverbs 14:22

10 of the Most Lethal CIA Interventions in Latin America

1969 CIA torturer Dan Mitrione arrives in Uruguay.

Motto:"The precise pain, in the precise place, in the precise amount, for the desired effect."

Right-wing forces previously use torture only as a last resort, Mitrione convinces them to use it as a routine, widespread practice.

The torture techniques he teaches to the death squads rival the Nazis'.

He becomes so feared that he is kidnaped and murdered.

Long-secret diplomatic documents reveal Richard Nixon wanted Uruguay’s government to threaten to kill leftist prisoners in an attempt to save the life of Dan Mitrione.

1970 CIA overthrows Prince Sahounek, highly popular among Cambodians for keeping them out of the Vietnam War.

He is replaced by CIA puppet Lon Nol, who immediately throws Cambodian troops into battle.

This unpopular move strengthens once minor opposition parties like the Khmer Rouge, which achieves power in 1975 and massacres millions.

1971 After half a decade of CIA-inspired political turmoil, a CIA-backed military coup overthrows leftist President Juan Torres in Bolivia.

In the next two years, dictator Hugo Banzer will have over 2,000 political opponents arrested without trial, then tortured, raped and executed.

"Papa Doc" Duvalier dies, leaving his 19-year old son "Baby Doc" Duvalier the dictator of Haiti.

His son continues his bloody reign with full knowledge of the CIA.

1972 Case-Zablocki Act

In theory, this should make CIA operations more accountable.

In fact, it is only marginally effective.

Congress votes to cut off CIA funds for its secret war in Cambodia.

A team of burglars wiretap Democratic offices at Watergate.

The team members have extensive CIA histories, including James McCord, E. Howard Hunt and five Cuban burglars.

The Other 9/11: A CIA Agent Remembers Chile's Coup

Watergate Scandal - CIA's main collaborating newspaper in America, Washington Post, reports Richard Nixon's crimes long before any other newspaper takes up the subject.

The two reporters, Woodward and Bernstein, make almost no mention of the CIA's many fingerprints all over the scandal.

It is later revealed that Woodward was a Naval intelligence briefer to the White House, and knows many important intelligence figures, including General Alexander Haig.

His main source, "Deep Throat," is probably one of those.

Richard Nixon fires CIA Director Richard Helms for failing to cover up the Watergate scandal.

1974 Operation CHAOS Pulitzer prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh publishes a reveal about the domestic surveillance and infiltration of anti-war and civil rights groups in the US.

Angleton is fired.

Hughes Ryan Act - Congress passes an amendment requiring the president to report nonintelligence CIA operations to the relevant congressional committees in a timely fashion.

1975 CIA helps topple the democratically elected, left-leaning Australian government of Prime Minister Edward Whitlam.

The CIA does this by giving an ultimatum to its Governor-General, John Kerr.

The Governor-General is a largely ceremonial position appointed by the Queen; the Prime Minister is democratically elected.

The use of this archaic and never-used law stuns the nation.

Henry Kissinger convinces Reagan to back the brutal leader of UNITA, Jonas Savimbi in Angola.

Angola is a country of little strategic importance and not seriously threatened by communism.

This polarizes Angolan politics and drives his opponents into the arms of Cuba and the Soviet Union for survival.

Congress will cut off funds in 1976, but the CIA is able to run the war off the books until 1984, when funding is legalized again.

This entirely pointless war kills over 300,000 Angolans.

Victor Marchetti and John Marks publish "The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence" - a whistle-blowing history of CIA crimes and abuses.

Marchetti spent 14 years in the CIA, eventually becoming an executive assistant to the Deputy Director of Intelligence.

Marks spent five years as an intelligence official in the State Department.

Philip Agee publishes a diary of his life - "Inside the Company".

Agee worked in covert operations in Latin America during the 60s, and details the crimes in which he took part.

Public outrage compels Congress to hold hearings on CIA crimes.

Senator Frank Church heads the Church Committee Senate investigation, and Representative Otis Pike heads the House investigation.

Despite a 98% incumbency reelection rate, both Church and Pike are defeated in the next elections.

The investigations lead to a number of reforms which prove ineffective, as the Iran-Contra scandal reveals.

Gerald Ford creates Rockefeller Commission, headed by Nelson Rockefeller, which attempts to reduce the damage done by the Church Committee.

Five of the commission's eight members are also members of the Council on Foreign Relations.

White House Altered Rockefeller Commission Report

1979 CIA fails to predict the fall of the Shah of Iran, a longtime CIA puppet, and the rise of Muslim fundamentalists who are furious at the CIA's backing of SAVAK, the Shah's bloodthirsty secret police.

Iranian 'students' take 52 Americans hostage in the US embassy in Tehran.

Soviets invade Afghanistan five months after the CIA begins supplying arms to any faction willing to fight the Soviets.

One of these is Sheik Abdel Rahman, who will become involved in the first World Trade Center bombing.

October 15 Adolfo Arnaldo Majano Ramos and Jaime Abdul Gutiérrez Avendaño perform a coup d'état in El Salvador with the support of Guillermo Ungo, Mario Antonio Andino and Román Mayorga Quirós.

This launches a full-fledged civil war that lasts for more than 12 years.

The Myth of the Liberal Coup

It also included the deliberate terrorizing and targeting of civilians by death squads, recruitment of child soldiers and other violations of human rights, mostly by the military.

An unknown number of people disappeared during the conflict, and the UN reports that more than 75,000 were killed.

In Nicaragua Anastasios Somoza II falls.

The Marxist Sandinistas take over the government and are initially popular because of their commitment to land and anti-poverty reform.

The CIA and US Armed Forces supply the government with overwhelming military and intelligence superiority throughout the Carter and Reagan administrations.

CIA trained death squads roam the countryside deliberate terrorizing and targeting civilians, inducting child soldiers and committing atrocities like that of El Mazote, where they massacre between 700 and 1000 Christian men, women and children.

UN reports more than 75,000 are killed.

December 8 Assassination of John Lennon

1981 CIA begins selling arms to Iran at high prices, using the profits to arm the Contras fighting the Sandinista government in Nicaragua.

1983 CIA gives Honduran military officers the Human Resource Exploitation Training Manual.

"While we do not stress deplore the use of coercive techniques, we do want to make you aware of them and the proper way to use them."

Honduras' notorious "Battalion 316 then uses these techniques, with the CIA's full knowledge, on thousands of leftist dissidents.

At least 184 are murdered.

1983 CIA Document Reveals Plan To Destroy Syria

1984 Last of a series of Boland Amendments is passed.

These amendments have reduced CIA aid to the Contras; the last one cuts it off completely.

CIA Director William Casey is already prepared to "hand off" the operation to Lt. Col. Oliver North, who illegally continues supplying the Contras through the CIA's informal, secret, and self-financing network.

This includes "humanitarian aid" donated by Adolph Coors and William Simon, and military aid funded by Iranian arms sales.

1986 Nicaragua shoots down a C-123 transport plane carrying military supplies to the Contras.

The lone survivor, Eugene Hasenfus, turns out to be a CIA employee, as are the two dead pilots.

The airplane belongs to Southern Air Transport, a CIA front.

The incident makes a mockery of claims that the CIA is not illegally arming the Contras.

Iran-Contra scandal finally captures the media's attention.

Congress holds hearings, and several key figures, including Lt. Col. Oliver North, lie under oath to protect the intelligence community.

CIA Director William Casey dies of brain cancer before Congress can question him.

All reforms enacted by Congress after this scandal are purely cosmetic.

1987 The Jonathan Pollard Spy Case

1989 US invades Panama to overthrow a dictator on the CIA payroll, General Manuel Noriega, who has been transporting cocaine for them.

1990 With "Baby Doc" Duvalier deposed, "leftist priest" Jean-Bertrand Aristide captures 68% of the vote competing against 10 comparatively wealthy candidates.

After eight months in power, the CIA-backed military deposes him and brutalizes the country.

Thousands of Haitian refugees escape the turmoil in barely seaworthy boats.

As popular opinion calls for Aristide's return, the CIA begins a disinformation campaign painting the courageous priest as mentally unstable.

1991 Saddam Hussein, a creature of the CIA, invades Kuwait.

With US encouragement, Hussein invaded Iran in 1980.

During this costly eight-year war, the CIA built up Hussein's forces with sophisticated arms, intelligence, training and financial backing.

This cemented Hussein's power at home, allowing him to crush the many internal rebellions that erupted from time to time, sometimes with poison gas supplied by the US.

1992 In the years following the end of the Cold War, the CIA is increasingly used for economic espionage.

This involves stealing technological secrets of competing foreign companies and giving them to American ones.

1993 Chaos in Haiti grows so bad that William Jefferson Clinton has no choice but to depose the Haitian military dictator, Raoul Cedras, on threat of US invasion.

The US occupiers do not arrest Haiti's military leaders for crimes against humanity, instead ensure their safety and rich retirements.

Aristide is returned to power only after being forced to accept an agenda favorable to the country's ruling class.

unique library index

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 forged 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 the Lumière Infinie - 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 the Lumière Infinie 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 central banking system, mass 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 mass media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass 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.
