Quotes of the Times:
“It is impossible to invade the mainland of America, because there is a rifle behind every blade of grass.” Isoroko Yamamoto, Commander in Chief, Japanese Navy, during WWII.
“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” Abraham Lincoln.
“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes.” President Dwight Eisenhower, farewell address, Jan. 17, 1961.

When the founding fathers of the United States of America finished their work at Independence Hall in 1786, they had set in motion the greatest political, social, and economic experiment ever seen in modern times – what one American politician described as: “What the world had not seen for ages; viz., a church without a pope, and a state without a king.” Hon. J. A. Bingham.
These founding fathers had no illusions about what the launching, of this experiment meant. When Benjamin Franklin was one of the first, to exit Independence Hall, a woman cried out: “Dr Franklin, what sort of government do we have? Franklin shouted back: “a republic, if you can keep it.”
When the founding fathers, of the United States, declared independence from Great Britain, they all knew that they were setting out on a perilous journey. They all knew that they were doing something that had been tried before, many times, and it had always failed. Nevertheless, they were going to try again. They were going to create a nation of people that dared to rule themselves best enunciated by Abraham Lincoln, when he said, the US government was: “Of the people, by the people, for the people.”
The founding fathers knew they were going to be attacked by the authoritarian regimes of the Old World (the Ancien Régimes of Europe). This hostility from Europe, was inevitable. The aristocrats of Europe, had been fighting against and suppressing free government by the people for centuries. It was only natural that they would feel threatened by the declaration of independence, even if it was on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. They knew, that if the example set by America, was to survive and thrive, then it would inevitably threaten their own existence and control. This American experiment need to be strangled in its cradle.
Fortunately, for America, the French Revolution broke out in 1789. This meant that the Ancien Régimes of Europe were too busy suppressing yet another outbreak of pent up rage, to bother themselves with America.
After an enormous struggle, the Ancien Régimes managed to contain the French Revolution and defeat Napoleon. Immediately, afterwards they assembled in Vienna in 1814-15 to plan the future. Their main objective at the Congress of Vienna, was to organize the world, so that something like the French Revolution could never happen again. This meant that the United States had to be destroyed. The members of the Ancien Régimes reasoned, that they would never be safe, from the guillotine, while the example of the United States, as a beacon of freedom, democracy and republicanism, was allowed to exist.
The Americans were not ignorant of the danger. In 1827, President Munroe enacted legislation, which is now called, the Monroe Doctrine. The Munroe Doctrine declared that the Western Hemisphere was out of bounds to the Ancien Régimes of the Old World. With the declaration of the Monroe Doctrine, America said to the Old World: “You stay over there in Europe, and we will stay here. If you try to come over here, it will mean war.” And that, was basically, the way things stayed until the American Civil War of 1861-65.
The American Civil War was an ideal opportunity for the Ancien Régimes to destroy the Republic of the United States of America. A two-pronged attack was planned. France had already conquered and occupied Mexico, and they were going to use Mexico as a springboard into the US. Britain was going to use Canada, in the same manner, to invade from the north. The US was in mortal danger. Abraham Lincoln, managed to overcome these threats by playing two crucial cards. He appealed to the Tsar of Russia, Alexander II, for help. The Tsar sent his navy to San Francisco and New York, and he let the enemy know that he was prepared to go to war to defend America. Secondly, Abraham Lincoln, freed the slaves. Lincoln’s original intention was to free the slaves after the civil war was won. The threat from Britain and France forced his hand. But freeing the slaves was very effective, because both Britain and France knew that they could not act in support of slavery:
The locking up of the world’s source of cotton supply had been a general calamity, and the Confederate government and people had steadily expected that the British and French governments would intervene in the war. The conversion of the struggle into a crusade against slavery made intervention impossible. Encyclopedia Britannica, vol. 22. art. United States of America, p. 767.
Because the attacks, against the Republic of the United States of America, from without failed, the attacks from within intensified. The republic not only had enemies outside the country, it also had enemies inside the country. Many examples could be quoted, going all the way back to the beginning of land of the free and the home of the brave. But, for the sake of brevity two examples will be briefly mentioned.
During the 1920’s and 1930’s fascism was a very popular political philosophy. The faces of Hitler and Mussolini, often graced the front cover of American magazines, such as Time Magazine. During the 1930’s, the whole world was stymied in the Great Depression – Fascism was seen by many, as the solution to the economic and political woes of the time. When Franklin Roosevelt became president in 1932, the fascist sympathisers in America considered him to be a socialist (and worse even a communist). These fascists mostly dwelt on Wall Street and they attempted a coup against Roosevelt in what is now known as the ‘Banker’s Plot’ (see below).
The ‘Bankers Plot’ failed, but the plot against President John F. Kennedy succeeded. Yes! the assassination of JFK was a conspiracy. How do we know that it was a conspiracy? Answer: because none other than the United States Congress proved that there was more than one assassin involved in the shooting that day. In 1976, the US House of Representatives, reopened the investigation of the JFK assassination, by creating a committee called The Select Committee on Assassinations. Their published report says: “Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy”. See, Government National Archives, https://www.archives.gov/research/jfk/select-committee-report
It was so obviously a coup against Kennedy, the Republic and the American people, because after the assassination, everything that JFK did, to preserve and strengthen the Republic was undone (see note below). JFK was the last true president of the Republic. He fought for the interests of the Republic. It cost him his life.
What does this short history of the war against the United States Republic, tell us? Does it have anything to do, with what, is presently taking place in America?

Note: The reason why the Russians were willing to help the US during the Civil War, was because the Russian Tsars were the only part of the Ancien Régimes that did not agree with what was planned at the Congress of Vienna. In addition, Russia and Britain were almost always on opposing sides, for geo-political and economic reasons. Russia looked upon the US as a useful ally against Britain.

Note: The Bankers Plot failed because it was exposed by General Smedley Butler. Butler was the military hero of the hour. The plotters wanted to recruit him, to be the leader of the military in the coup. However, Butler, exposed the coup and testified against the plotters in front of the Congressional McCormick-Dickstein Committee 1934-35. However, no one was prosecuted for the crime.

Note: One individual who moved in the same circles as the plotters, and was almost certainly a part of the plot, was Prescott Bush. He was one of the Wall Street Bankers that financed Hitler and the Nazis. Even after America entered WWII, he continued to do business with the Nazis. He had all his business assets confiscated under ‘The Trading with the Enemy Act.’ Somehow, all his confiscated assets where restored, to him, after the war. Prescott’s returned assets are the foundation of the Bush Family fortune today. Prescott Bush was the father of George Herbert Walker Bush, the 41st President of America, grandfather of George Walker Bush, the 43rd President of America, and grandfather of Jeb Bush, governor of Florida 1999-2007.

Note: all the following initiatives taken by the Kennedy Administration were reversed after the assassination:
- Getting out of the war in Vietnam.
- Trying to negotiate with the USSR to end the Cold War.
- Issuing debt free currency into circulation, through the department of the Treasury, instead of the Federal Reserve.
- Waging war against organised crime through his brother, Robert Kennedy, who was the Federal Attorney General.
- JFK had vowed that he was going, “to break the CIA into a thousand pieces.” Of course, that never happened.
