Another Nail in the Coffin of Power without Principle, May 29, 2009
David Ray Griffin
“This book is part of a growing body of non-fiction that illuminates the cataclysmic gap between those with power, who do as they please, and those with knowledge, who are not heard. At least 80% of what is done `in our name' with our tax dollars is wasteful, lacks intellectual integrity, and does great harm to humanity both at home and abroad. Unless President Obama breaks out of the closed circle of power to connect with the kind of independent knowledge found in this book, he will remain a captive `front' for the Empire Enterprise.”
Above is the jacket blurb I provided after reading the galley copy, and it disappoints me that the publisher has not done a better job of sharing information with prospective buyers using all the tools that Amazon provides.
935 lies, 25 high crimes and misdemeanors, all documented, all led by Dick Cheney, the most nakedly amoral man–and the most powerful–ever to dominate a White House, a Congress, and the abuse of all that could be done “in our name.”
When combined with the massive cover-up of 9-11, a pre-planned cover-up that included nine nations warning us in advance, Dick Cheney scheduling a nation-wide exercise that put him personally “in control” of the entire US Government and the US military specifically (wisely putting his command center on the piers in NYC as he knew in advance that the city's command center in WTC would not be usable), with Rudy Guliani all ready with pre-ordered trucks to “scoop and dump” the crime scene to the point that firefighters rioted–the mind just spins at the separation of the public from its government, of the political arm of government from reality, and of both the political and professional arms of government from ethics.
I will list just six other titles here, one each on 9-11, the Kennedy assassination, and the King assassination, and three that I have sponsored, the latter three free online but also here at Amazon in hard-copy.
