All over the world as in the USA itself many people have the suspicion that the democratic cover has degenerated to an empty masquerade. The talk of the elected US President as “the most powerful Man on Earth” is an empty phrase. He might still be “the most glamorous man on Earth”, but nothing more, since the power lies somewhere else, namely with the US Power Elite, which is today much smaller than it was in the days when C. Wright Mills has coined that word:
The power elite is consisting of the wealthiest people together with the heads of “Intelligence” and the military. Coming from what President Eisenhower named the “Military-Industrial Complex” in his farewell address this small class has formed the “Deep State”, the power behind the curtain since long:
The named forces were struggling for dominance already in the times of FDR what surfaced with the aborted “Business Plot” against the President of the “New Deal” in the early Thirties for those who want to see (http://www.huppi.com/kangaroo/Coup.htm). Finally the ultimate power of the deep state manifested itself with the assassination of John F. Kennedy (http://tinyurl.com/ndzt8ho). This was possibly the most important “turning point” in US history, the more since the deed was covered up and the planers and perpetrators hidden behind the smoke screen of the “lone assassin” and the “magic bullet” from behind hitting the President into the front of his head:
Anybody who wants to understand how this hidden power is able to liquidate a President running “astray” by taking world peace serious and by not allowing militarism to run into the danger of “Armageddon” can rely on at least three books revealing the scary truth:
“Family of Secrets” by Russ Baker:
“Mary´s Mosaic” by Peter Janney:
“The Devil´s Chessboard” by David Talbot
“Family of Secrets” by Russ Baker – a renowned investigative journalist – deals a lot with the events directly connected to the murder of the President. It connects a member of the most prominent dynasties of the US more or less directly to the assassination: George H. Bush! The book reveals a network of culprits in the oil industry, the administration, in the “Intelligence” and the Mafia – connected to the project of toppling Castro´s regime in Cuba – being linked to the ruthless murder. Though not being the first book on the topic connecting the “deep state” to the murder this monumental research work demands a lot from the reader since an enormous number of people, their backgrounds and intermingling are presented. And it offers more to the reader since it lays the family history of the Bushes before and after Kennedy´s assassination bare. The insight is as frightening as necessary to see clearly: the assassination was an “inside job”.
The book “Mary Pinchot Meyer” shows another facet of the Power Elite´s ruthless attitude. Even people who were individually not involved into politics but have crossed the way of the slain President could easily be targeted if asking too many questions and knowing too much, so Kennedy´s mistress of his last years, Mary Pinchot Meyer. She has obviously been an inspiration to the late President and didn´t want to accept the cover up of her lover´s murder. That was her death sentence.

“The Devil´s Chess Board, Allen Dulles, the CIA,
and the Rise of America´s Secret Government”
The third book, written by David Talbot, goes deep into the planning center of the murderous activities and gives a view into the secret power from another perspective. At the center of the group, that planned such brutal actions stood the head of the CIA, Allen Dulles.
Allen Dulles as a Young Man
This man, who could rightfully be called a devil, looks on a photo taken around his wedding in 1920 very harmless, sensible, in deed almost pious like a clergyman and not like the future director of a “Murder Inc.”. But so should the CIA, founded in 1947, in deed be called. In fact long before the foundation of the CIA Dulles was involved in secret service operations and to a high extend in deep cooperation with the German Nazis. The law company – Sullivan and Cromwell – which Allen and his brother John Foster Dulles – later Secretary of Foreign Affairs – served was closely linked to German capital. Those interests had high priority for the brothers even in times of WW II.
All this not really astonishing taking into consideration that parts of the US Power Elite did a lot to bring the Nazis into power, well exposed by the book “The Wall Street and Hitler” by Anthony C. Sutton (http://www.reformed-theology.org/html/books/wall_street/). Those circles used the Nazis to kick the British out of the imperial competition and to make sure that the Soviet Union would be bombed into Stone Age. Surely they didn´t want the Nazis to rule the world but stopped the “Show” when the aims were reached, leaving millions dead.
Intrusion: When Netanyahu claimed that Hitler wasn´t originally planning the total extinction of Europe´s Jewish population but had been convinced to do so by Jerusalem´s Mufti (https://wipokuli.wordpress.com/2015/10/22/netanyahu-anti-semite-no-1-rewrites-history-or-so/), the absurd smearing of a Palestinian who could hardly have had such influence on the Nazi No 1, might have covered another cabal. The close contact of Dulles and his like with high ranking Nazis in Switzerland might have had its influence on the Nazis perception of US politics towards the European war theatre. The Dulles brothers hated the FDR administration and their New Deal policy, which had a whole number of Jewish supporters. They might have tried a lot to make the Nazis believe that it was the “Jewish influence” that made the US supporting Great Britain and the Soviet Union and prevent Germany´s victory over them. The Dulles Brothers and their associates could thus keep their good business relations with big German companies which in fact prevailed during the war almost to the end. That this might have had a strengthening and fatal influence on the monstrous Nazi extinction agenda is much more likely than Netanyahu´s absurd allegations of the Mufti.
Anti-Communism was the dominant guide line of the Dulles gang. In fact Allen Dulles wanted former Nazis to play an even more important role in post war Germany as “junior partners” than in fact they did. So was Nazi General Gehlen used to organize the German secret service. US secret services helped high ranking Nazis to escape via the “Rat Line” especially to South America (like Barbie, the “butcher of Lyon”), were in fact a whole number “served” them well in supporting fascist regimes at the strings of the US. Latin America was considered the “back yard” of the US by the power elite and any shift to socially oriented policy was dubbed socialist or communist. This Jacobo Arbenz, the President of Guatemala had to learn in 1954. His fate was later on a lesson for Castro and the Cuban Revolution.
In fact the concept was clear: wherever the arm of the US power could reach, socially minded concepts wouldn´t be tolerated. Wherever people wanted to free themselves from exploitation US interests were “at stake”. They planned many times to kill Castro. In case of Congo´s Lumumba they “succeeded”, plunging millions of his country men into misery and death. They followed the principle: “if you don´t want to be exploited by us, you´re our enemy!” Dulles and his circle were not saving their West European allies from brutal methods to keep them “in line”. They build the “Gladio” network, using terror attacks to be blamed on leftist organizations. De Gaulle kicked the network out of France. The CIA undertook a number of attempts on his life.
How ruthless Dulles was is also to be seen by his readiness to use people whom he even knew personally for his plans at their cost. The Quaker relief worker Noel Field was a harmless idealist. He got a call for a teaching job at the University in Prague 1950. Dulles used his contacts to make Eastern intelligence belief Field would head a US spy ring. This triggered Stalin´s paranoia. It did not only lead to Field´s long imprisonment as well as of family members but to a wave of increased repression, which was Dulles aim in his concept to nourish Eastern resistance.
A special “case” for Dulles was John F. Kennedy, whom he got to know as a young Senator. Dulles thought the young man would remain “his pupil” as Kennedy liked to know the views of the Dulles brothers. But by the time it turned out that Kennedy was of quite different views. And when Dulles CIA organized Lumumba´s assassination, Kennedy was highly upset, in fact getting to know about the event much later. And then there came the “Bay of Pigs” disaster, which was sort of a trap for the young President who had fallen to the idea it was rather a “Cuban affair”. Seeing the full dimension of the affair he deposed Dulles as head of the CIA.
This decision didn´t mean Alan Dulles wouldn´t have had influence in the CIA anymore. The organization was already too much of a Dulles Mafia as to submit to formalities. But it was the right instrument for those circles in the US Power Elite of the type which today are called “Neocons”, to deal with the President according to their fury over Kennedy´s peace orientation. Kennedy´s wise decision to end the Cuba crisis by also taking nuclear warheads out of Turkey instead of allowing “Operation Northwoods” and his stand against the “Military Industrial Complex”, expressed in a famous speech, drove those forces mad:
It was the determination of the President not to allow power and profit thirsty war mongers to gamble with the fate of mankind that sealed his fate. Another detail is also very special. Vice President Johnson – being near to the US oil barons – was asked why he was accepting to be Number 2 “on the ticket” for the election with Kennedy by one Clare Booth Luce. He answered: “One out of every four Presidents has died in office, I´m a gambling man, darlin´.” He “won” the bet!
In fact Dulles was Johnson´s first choice for heading the commission to “investigate” the President´s assassination, but then Earl Warren was made head to deflect liberal skepticism. Nevertheless Dulles hardly missed any meeting of the commission he was part of. The results were as ridicules in face of the “Zapruder Film” as can be seen. The President´s head thrown back by a mysterious projectile “from behind”:
For the conspirators – Dulles being one of their heads – JFK´s brother Robert was the most dangerous person, not only as Secretary of Justice, but the more when he decided to run for President, determined to find out who really killed his brother. On June 4th 1968 he had to share his brother´s fate. The said assassin was so disoriented that the likeliness to be a “Patsy” seems overwhelming. One might well think of the CIA´s programs for “Mind Control”, Project MKUltra.
James Jesus Angelton
Unlike those men Dulles hated so much, he died a “natural” death: on January 29th 1969 Dulles died of a complicating pneumonia. Also his devout henchman and CIA´s counterintelligence “wizard”, James Jesus Angelton (what a name by the way) and deeply involved into the death of Mary Pinchot Meyer, died of lung cancer in 1987. But he must be credited for knowing what kind of guy he was. Short time before his death he talked about Dulles and the associates Wisner and Helms and that they “would deservedly end up in hell”. And he added: “I guess that I will see them there soon”!
