    The 2015 film "Trumbo" on Amazon Prime is amazing. Also pick up a copy of the 2007 documentary of the same name.
    If you want to see how The Junta (our CIA and military rulers--we don't actually live in a democracy. If we did, we wouldn't have invaded Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Panama, Granada, and other nations since the vast majority of Americans are against those wars). Anyway, if you want to see how The Junta intimidated Hollywood writers in the 1950s, see last year's film Trumbo free on Amazon Prime. And pick up a copy of the documentary made 8 years earlier, also called Trumbo.

    I had no idea Hedda Hopper, a gossip columnist in Hollywood, was a gun maul for the Junta. But of course, Carl Bernstein (of "Woodward and Bernstein" fame) wrote several articles in "Rolling Stone" Magazine in the 1970's about how the CIA secretly pays hundreds of "journalists" to skew the news. Lots of journalists and news producers are on the CIA's secret payroll.
    Thank goodness for independent Roku news channels like Free Speech TV, The Real News, TYT Network, and Democracy Now.

    And of course, President Eisenhower, in his farewell address, warned us about the Junta, circumspectly calling it the "Military-Industrial Complex," which 3 short years later assassinated President John Kennedy for wanting to reign in the Junta's power and for not wanting to invade Vietnam, where a minimum of 3 million innocent Vietnamese were killed. We do not live in a democracy. See the great film "Trumbo."

    Not only is the Junta responsible for 10 million deaths worldwide since 1947 (when the CIA was created), but the Junta has also embezzled from the U.S. Treasury 10 Trillion dollars over the years, which is half our national debt and a burden that average American taxpayers must pay in future taxes. (Most of that 10 trillion was embezzled within the last 15 years, after the 9/11 terrorist attack, which was by every indication a false-flag operation conducted by the Junta -- much like the German Not-See's (unable to get anything done in the German legislature) burned down the German legislature building, blamed the arson on their political opposition and declared martial law. Similarly, we got the UnPatriot Act and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq that the Junta wanted -- two countries the Junta had been planning to invade for years before 9/11, and now the Junta along with their "defense" contractor buddies had their ready-made excuse to mawl the U.S. Treasury again.

    War brings enormously higher profits, but also much, much more can be stolen from the Treasury during wartime than peacetime. War profiteers aspire to start wars even through false, devious means if necessary; they do not recoil from war but welcome and ignite it. We should have heeded President Eisenhower's warning about the Military-Industrial Junta. The NeoCons never met a war they didn't like. War is a party for them -- a very lucrative party held at taxpayers' expense and at the expense of the lives of young American soldiers.

    As American founding father James Madison said, "If tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy."

    After you see the 2015 film Trumbo and the 2007 documentary Trumbo, check out Salon.com founder David Talbot's acclaimed book "The Devil's Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America's Secret Government." Talbot talks about his book on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CW7zkWd0R0

    Since U-verse broadband raised its data cap this month to 1 terabyte from 600 Gigs, I've been watching more news. Love the 10-minute analysis pieces I get from independent sources on Roku like The Real News Network (TRNN), Free Speech TV, Democracy Now!, and TYT. They help to clear up the disinformation you find on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, BBC, ABC, FOX, and other channels.

    For example, not one of the "mainstream" disinformation channels have linked the military coup in Turkey a month ago to the C.I.A. That attempted coup resulted in hundreds of deaths. The mainstream obfuscation media all pointed to that Turkish guy living in Pennsylvania as the "mastermind" of the coup. Lol. It's obviously the CIA behind the coup, and that Turkish guy living in Pennsylvania is just a CIA puppet. By contrast, on the very first night of the coup, TYT drew the link between Mr. Gulen living in Pennsylvania and the CIA. TYT pointed fingers at the CIA the very first night. CNN, FOX, and the other CIA-infiltrated news media still haven't said a thing about CIA involvement.

    Analysis pieces on The Real News Network (or was it TYT?) pointed out that Gulen runs the largest charter "school" system in America, and has "schools" all over the world, comprising assets of 200 Billion dollars (not million). That's a staggering amount. That kind of money comes from the CIA with its direct line to the U.S. Treasury, meaning it comes from American taxpayers' pockets. (CIA loves spending our money, but if they'd only spend it on good, uplifting things.)

    Hundreds of people died in that putsch (failed coup attempt), just one of many, many military coups the CIA has orchestrated around the world since 1947, when the CIA was created. Check out the book "The CIA: A Forgotten History" by William Blum. The CIA doesn't think much of democracy, at home or abroad.

    So you may have thought to yourself I was over-inflating numbers 6 months ago. You probably thought, "How could the military and CIA steal 10 TRILLION dollars from the U.S. Treasury just since the year 2000 ?!"

    That's TRILLION -- NOT million or Billion. 10 Trillion is more than half our national debt of 19 trillion, a staggering amount.

    Well, 5 days ago, that's basically what Reuters reported and Washington, DC's newspaper of record about Congressional happenings called "The Hill" reprinted. The Defense Department's Inspector General, testifying to Congress, said that "6 Trillion" dollars is missing -- 6 trillion in accounting "adjustments"/errors that cannot be accounted for, the Defense Department Inspector General testified. But trust that it's more than 6 trillion; I believe it's 10 trillion at least AND JUST IN THE LAST 15 YEARS, which averages to about 700 billion PER YEAR. So for every dollar we give to the military, the CIA, and "Defense" Contractor companies each year, they steal another dollar.

    But it's not our brave American soldiers getting rich; soldiers work hard but make peanuts. It's the Junta getting wildly rich. It's the Junta that's embezzling all those funds. The Junta is what President Eisenhower warned us about and euphemistically called the "Military-Industrial Complex"; the junta is embezzling all those funds, piling upon American Taxpayers over half of our national debt through their amazing greed and alarming degree of theft.

    Meanwhile America's bravest (America's soldiers) are just barely getting by financially. The total yearly salary of the 1 to 2 million U.S. soldiers each year must come to well under 100 billion dollars of the 700 billion officially allotted for "Defense" spending in the U.S. budget. And now we can reason, thanks to the "Defense" Department Inspector General's testimony to Congress, that the Military Industrial Complex steals ANOTHER 700 billion every year (on top of the official 660 billion dollar budget), amounting to a total "Defense" expenditure of 1.4 TRILLION every year. So The Junta (or unofficial, totalitarian secret, murky leadership of the military, CIA, and Defense Contractor companies) steals a dollar for every dollar we officially give in the budget for "Defense," which has increased our national debt astronomically, basically bankrupting our nation -- all thanks to the Junta which controls our nation.

    We do not live in a democracy, despite the news media lies we hear everyday pretending like we do live in a democracy. The corporate media will never refer to The Junta. We have a junta just like any banana republic has a junta. The junta killed John Kennedy for trying to put an end to its thievery and senseless (but self-profiting) wars which hobble our economy decade after decade. The Junta intimidated Ross Perot to withdrawal from the 1992 Presidential election. Alex Jones is a kook, but he gets some things right. Jones reported that Perot was receiving large amounts of death threats and feared for his family's life and so he withdrew from the race, but thankfully Perot's presidential run kept the first President Bush (Papa Bush, former director of the CIA) from winning a second term, resulting in Bill Clinton becoming president ("President Walmart"). You recall Bill Clinton is from Arkansas, just like Walmart is from Arkansas.

    Here's a link to TheHill.com's article. The Hill is a 22-year-old newspaper that has a hard-print circulaiton of 24,000. I've seen reporters from The Hill newspaper interviewed on C-SPAN over the years. Some of their columnists are respected names in journalism, ranging from liberal voices to conservative voices, like James Carville, Bill Press, Lanny Davis, Juan Williams, Diick Morris, etc.

    http://thehill.com/policy/defense/29...ustments-audit

    This 5-day-old story about massive thievery by the military-industrial complex (weapons manufacturers, etc.) should be all over CNN, FOX, NBC, etc., but as yet, we've heard nothing about this story, which is as big of news (and actually bigger news) than the presidential race. I heard just a sentence about this story the other day on CNN or MSNBC -- just a sentence. The executives in mainstream media do not like to upset the Junta. Here's just a couple examples: Remember what happened to Dan Rather, the anchor of CBS News for over 2 decades? Dan Rather got fired from his job after angering the Junta's favorite pet, President George W. Bush, in the 2000s. And the incredible CNN reporter Charles Jaco got fired from CNN in the 1990s for his retrospective reporting about chemical warfare in Vietnam . The Junta has fangs. Jaco works locally in St. Louis now; remember he's the reporter who a couple years ago got national attention again for his reporting about wacky abortion remarks made by a Missouri U.S. senatorial candidate, Todd Akin, a U.S. House Representative at the time. Quote from Wiki: U.S. Rep Todd Akin "controversially claimed that women rarely become pregnant from 'legitimate rape.'"
    Jaco was one of CNN best reporters, handling much of the first Iraq War's coverage in 1990, but the Junta had him fired.

    Anyway here's the link to The Hill's article again:
    http://thehill.com/policy/defense/29...ustments-audit

    And the original Reuters report: http://www.reuters.com/article/us-us...-idUSKCN10U1IG

    = =

    PS: I just re-read the article. Okay, ultimately the article says that there are 6 trillion in cascading accounting errors for 2015, which doesn't conflate to 6 trillion dollars being missing, like I wrote above, but I do believe that 6 trillion is missing just from the years 2000 to 2016 -- and more like 10 trillion.

    The Military-Industrial Complex steals a dollar for every dollar it's given. 500-dollar hammers anyone? If it weren't for the junta's massive fraud, our national debt would be 10 trillion today, not 20 trillion, a big difference. We're supporting a monkey on our back.
