German American Bund 1938
Many of our top people are crooks.
Many are as evil and destructive as Hitler.
Many support a cruel form of feudalism.
It has taken some time for the mainstream media to reveal even a small part this situation.
What is going on?
Are most of our leaders paid for by the CIA?

scunnert-nation.blogspot/ drew our attention to John Pilger's article, 28 may 2009, entitled: THE DEPTH OF CORRUPTION
Among the points made by John Pilger (our comments in italics):
1. In the UK, there is currently a scandal concerning Members of Parliaments' tax evasion and fake mortgages.
This hides a deeper corruption which is linked to the politics of the USA.
2. British parliamentary democracy has been gradually destroyed.
As in the USA, the two main parties have almost identical policies
(eg support for the CIA, the Pentagon, Israel, American corporations, American Imperialism)
3. Many politicians are now revealed as personally crooked.
Their accomplices have been certain journalists and editors.
The public has been deceived by dishonest journalism and by opinion polls based on absurdly small samplings.
4. The lawless attack on Iraq, in 2003, was backed by the two main parties and by most of the media.
BBC journalist Andrew Marr (reportedly an agent of MI6) told BBC viewers that Blair had "said they would be able to take Baghdad without a bloodbath, and that in the end the Iraqis would be celebrating. And on both of those points he has been proved conclusively right."
5. "When Blair’s army finally retreated from Basra in May, it left behind, according to scholarly estimates, more than a million people dead, a majority of stricken, sick children, a contaminated water supply, a crippled energy grid and four million refugees.
"As for the 'celebrating' Iraqis, the vast majority, say Whitehall’s own surveys, want the invader out."
6. "And when Blair finally departed the House of Commons, MPs gave him a standing ovation – they who had refused to hold a vote on his criminal invasion or even to set up an inquiry into its lies, which almost three-quarters of the British population wanted."
7. Blair committed the crime of deliberately planning the invasion of a country.
This is 'the supreme international crime' for 'which the Nazi foreign minister Joachim von Ribbentrop was hanged at Nuremberg after proof of his guilt was located in German cabinet documents.'
In February 2009, Britain’s 'Justice' Secretary, Jack Straw, blocked publication of crucial cabinet minutes from March 2003 about the planning of the invasion of Iraq.
8. Parliament, the police and journalists are involved in the anti-democratic process.
On 9 April 2009, the BBC’s Newsnight programme "promoted the guilt of 12 'terrorists' arrested in a contrived media drama orchestrated by the Prime Minister himself."
All were later released without charge.
