  1. Reagan slept thru his entire presidency…George H W Bush made policy and ran the country making billions in drugs and gun running and suppling Israel with any DEW and covert intel they wanted using Cheney, North and Rumsfeld to set the deals up…This carried over when his kid was put in charge by the Criminal Bankers George worked for as a reward …He was an extraordinary POS…

  2. Hmmm…. Funny, they never talk about the depravities of the KGB throughout the world, and into America, through the use/manipulatiuon of the American Media/Left, through the use of Idealogical Subversion!

  3. magnifique reportage.

    détournement du fleuve ça va avec. le nombre d opérations à travers le monde est hallucinant en effet.

    Phelb vaut mieux regarder Phineas et Phearb c plus amusant, que démêler le vrai du faux. car le vrai auteur à été retrouvé par des hommes grenouille au fond de la vase devant sa voiture phares allumés portière ouverte, quelle belle façon de se "suicider"
    les données de cet homme valeureux sont comme des bouteilles à la mer, à plusieurs dizaines de personnes en leur possession. un puzzle passionant.

  4. It is the function of the CIA to keep the world unstable, and to
    propagandize and teach the American people to hate, so we will let the
    Establishment spend any amount of money on arms." -John Stockwell former cia

  5. This is fantastic. The U.S. of A taking the trash out. Fucking comtards. The comtards decide to set up shop in America's back yard and they think the U.S. isn't going to do anything about it? The comtards get beat down and claim they are the victims. They will continue to get beat down every time they stick their heads up provided Republicans control the Executive. TRUMP TRAIN 2016!

  6. Secret service agents live a glamorous life filled with sex, fine dining, murder, and extortion. They got it made. We should cut their funding, they need to be brought back down to earth.

  7. the US the most ignorant and stupid nation in the world!! right.CIA what a fucking joke!!! The rest of the world are laughing. Please help us!!! Coca cola , thats the only thing you will be remembered about!! Happy days ahead!! Anything????

  8. Stir It Up: The CIA Targets Jamaica, Bob Marley and the Progressive Manley Government, my novel – tells the whole story of CIA destabilization of JA during the Marley era. Available online – search "stir it up CIA"

  9. You can spend all day arguing communism and democracy's pros and cons but you can't deny that there is good and bad on both sides . Democracy stands for freedom and communism stands up for the little guy who is constantly getting stepped on by the government in other political systems. And both sides are tainted by corruption and greed.

  10. Caring for and Informing Americans. We the people of the United State live in the most free nation on Earth. Our government preserves and enforces our democratic freedom by any means necessary.

  11. i dont understand how could CIA have so much power – in jamaica CIA stood for crack in action

  12. Oh, I didn`t mean they would lie about US production output and where the stuff is being sold more where it comes to analysis of foreign – eg. Chinese economies their capabilities and outputs simply not to scare the public how serious dependency on foreign production is. Don`t get me wrong-I`m not anti-American, I think we sail pretty much the same boat in Europe and I recognize situation with China as worrying and dangerous. I thin we underestimate them. Greetings from London.

  13. Yea I visited the UK in '05, it seemed like everything was ~ 2X exepensive b/c of the pound's strength. A Ford Focus there costs almost as much as a Mercedes C350 here. I don't think tho that Finan Times or Forbes, even if they did have some agenda, would have any reason for (or gain any advantage from) lying about whether certain products are made in the US or not

  14. Ha ha cheers.You need to know that computers in US are different to what we can buy here – my girl bought her Lenovo in Texas and it came 2 times cheaper and 2 times better on processor and ram then "same" one in UK. Don`t You think that Financial Times & Forbes could have a bit of agenda and twist the facts a bit every now and then? Every media does it I think. I just feel that for the sake of profit of the few who move things to China our countries/regions suffer lack of jobs and production.

  15. & forgot to mention, very impotantly, a huge % (possibly majority) of the world's factory machinery, robotics, & industrial control systems are made here too

  16. You're right we don't export much to Europe, 90% of what's made here is bought here or in Canada. It has nothing to do with me being American, I just read the Financial Times & Forbes obsessively, & from time to time come across articles about American-made products. My brother is a computer tech & I've watched him disassemble plenty of PCs, that's how I learned about the amount of US-made content in them. Na Zdrowie

  17. Well yeah I did not grind them down to bits the bottom line is the Chinese sell the final product, as it`s MSI for example, and they make a buck not US.While US may produce all the things You mentioned, I don`t see them in Europe whatsoever. Don`t know where you export them to, it`s not EU anyway. I understand Your point, guess I would defend it being american too, my experience is simply different. All the best.

  18. Well yes it better I can tell You from my own experience as coming from a country that underwent socialism-capitalism transformation, Even better example-DeutscheBahn is state own, in capitalist Germany, and is the best and one of the chepest rails in Europe.

  19. U haven't looked much inside those products, a huge % of chips on circuitboards/motherboards are US made. And we make most of the world's avionics & oil drilling, mining, & farming machinery, as well as tons of furniture, books, processed steel & plastics, etc
