A long-running television series, or a number of television series, similar to JR or Falcon Crest of the 1980s, but with modern touch on subjects of interest in people today. The seemingly endless anecdotes involving matters of major national interests, domestic and international affairs, national security, intrigue, and lots of human drama. (Or individual movies.)
The stories and happenings center around former federal agent Rodney Stich and the dozens of other insiders that provided him information of major intrigue in covert government operations during the past 25 years.
This proposal contains ideas for a long-running television series (Or TV or screen movies). Much of the material would be based upon the books written by former federal agent Rodney Stich, in collaboration with many other insiders. These insiders included agents of the CIA, ONI, FBI, DEA, FAA, Customs, Secret Service; state investigators; former drug smugglers, and former Mafia figures, most of whom had been involved in, or discovered as part of their official duties, major activities affecting vital American interests, including national security, during the past 50 years.
This material was initially discovered and documented by Rodney Stich after he was given the assignment to correct the conditions responsible for the worst series of aviation disasters in the nation's history. That information on corruption was then greatly expanded over the years as he undertook unprecedented actions seeking to expose the corruption and halt5 the continuing tragic consequences. After publishing his first book in 1978 and appearing as guest and expert on hundreds of radio and television shows, a continual series of other former government agents, professionals, in the intelligence and law enforcement divisions, contacted him and provided him with additional information relating to misconduct affecting national issues.
No other scenario as this is known to exist, and plays such a major and enabling role in many of America's most tragic events. Until some courageous group appears and uses this material, conditions will only continue to worsen for the United States and its people.
The vast amount of material and people associated with Rodney Stich enables numerous different formats to be considered for a television series. The following are a few thoughts on the matter:
Segment focusing on aviation safety, decades of airline crashes and behind-the-scene intrigue, including the 9/11 hijacking of four airliners that were simply a one-day's consequence of widespread documented misconduct. The aviation segment would focus on such matters as government safety inspectors reporting and attempting to correct the problems; retaliation against them and destruction of their reports; the crashes; the cover-ups; the attempts to circumvent the cover-ups, and the many groups involved in retaliation to prevent the public from learning about the deadly misconduct.
The many areas of government
activities that are involved would especially include the CIA and its
many covert activities, the little-known conduct of FBI personnel; the
sordid history of complicity by members of Congress in areas not
generally recognized by the public; the serious documented complicity by
federal judges; and much more.
By being at the center of these
activities, either directly involved or becoming a confidant to insiders
with diverse backgrounds, including the heads of secret CIA airlines,
secret CIA companies, FBI agents discovering corrupt activities, some
carrying out secret missions for White House politicians, FBI
officials involved in murders, and much more. The three primary books,
among the 15, that list many of these bizarre and covert activities, are
Defrauding America (an early introduction to misconduct in covert
and overt activities);
and Drugging America (huge amount of evidence showing government
personnel involvement in early drug smuggling—and the systematic cover-up by
U.S. media); History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11.
It is believed that this type of
material would be welcomed by today's television watchers, and
especially timely for its insider knowledge of how government works and
the tragedies resulting from the misconduct. In addition, the material should generate public interest
in the covert and overt workings of the various government entities
that affects their lives and the well-being of the United States.
The unprecedented acquisition of information, the accumulation of
so many people with unusual backgrounds, makes for a treasury to
information on government intrigue.
The information can either be
presented in a very specific manner or through implications.
Powerful forces will probably be felt to block any such television
series, but important national interests, in addition to the
probable great public acceptance, would hopefully encourage such a
series to proceed.
Presented in a David versus Goliath manner, or some semblance of that. The series could evolve around one person and his relationship with dozens of deep-cover and other government sources and drug traffickers, OR upon dozens of separate stand-alone episodes.

Portray of government intrigue as first discovered by Rodney Stich related to a series of airline disasters, when he was given the assignment to correct the conditions responsible for the worst series of airline disasters in the nation's history (when major airline crashes were occurring every few months). Stich spent years attempting to report and halt criminal activities that were and still continues to inflict great harm upon American interests.

Stich's attempts to circumvent the
cover-ups, including acting similar to an independent prosecutor
conducting several months of hearings; the three major airline disasters
occurring during the hearings, each of which were caused by the very
same problems Stich had repeatedly reported in writing, for which he
suffered retaliation; appeals to members of Congress who admitted the
gravity of the charges and then did nothing; the media cover-ups; his
appearance before a federal grand jury in Denver; and much more.
Refusing to work under the
corrupt conditions, Stich left government and became active in
aviation safety promotion activities, including helping to bring about
the Society of Air Safety Investigators, which is now a world-wide
organization called the International Society of Air Safety
Stich files the several federal
actions in the
federal courts seeking to report the criminal aspects of what he
discovered during his official duties. These initial lawsuits were
authorized by the federal
crime reporting statute and
providing that any citizen can seek a court order requiring a federal
official to perform a mandatory duty and to halt unlawful conduct. Under
law, the federal judge must receive information of a federal crime when
offered, as part of the judge's administrative (not judicial) duties.
Initially, federal district and
appellate judges admitted the gravity of the charges but then, at the
request of the U.S. attorneys that sought to block the reports of the
criminal activities, ruled (a) that this was a matter for Congress to
investigate (Stich wasn't asking the federal judges to investigate, just to
receive the information, which would make a public record of the charges),
and (b) that Stich lacked standing to bring such a suit (which was contrary
to reporting the crimes and contrary to the law requiring the judge to hear
Stich's presentation to determine if an order should be rendered forcing
federal officials in the FAA and NTSB to perform a mandatory duty and to
halt unlawful conduct that was resulting in airline disasters and deaths).
These matters were appealed and petitions for writ of certiorari filed with
the U.S. Supreme Court, when the Justices refused to hear the cases,
enabling the corruption and tragedies to continue (where the 9/11 hijackings
were simply one-day's consequences in preventable airline tragedies that had
continued for decades due to the cover-ups)
The continuation of
airline crashes and deaths motivated Stich to continue his efforts. He
published the first of numerous books in 1978, the first edition of
Unfriendly Skies, and started appearing on hundreds of television and
radio shows (which now number over 3,000).
The combination of the radio-TV
shows and the book caused the start of other former government agents to
contact Stich with information of
in other areas of covert and overt government operations.
Starting in 1986, Stich again
filed a federal action under the same statutes, seeking to report the
criminal activities that he had discovered from his many sources. Again,
Department of Justice personnel filed a motion to block the report.
During the first hearing, the federal judge admitted the gravity of the
charges and urged Stich to get the assistance of a lawyer. But a week
later, without the required notice and hearing, that same judge issued
an order dismissing the action and combining it with an illegal and
unconstitutional order barring Stich from filing any papers in any
federal court. That order was subsequently repeated several more times
by judges that permanently barred Stich from ever exercising the right
to file any papers in any federal district of appellate court. These
obstruction of justice judicial acts were followed by a continuation of
the corruption that Stich sought to report, and a continuation of tragic
and deadly consequences.
Justices were made aware of these crimes perpetrated by judges over
whom they had supervisory responsibilities.
As Stich learned about other criminal activities, including drug smuggling involving CIA and other government personnel, and learned about the October Surprise operation from people directly involved in the scheme, Stich again filed a federal action seeking to report the crimes against the United States. Department of Justice U.S. attorney David Levi, Sacramento, and several federal judges, then charged Stich with criminal contempt of court, denied him a jury trial, and sentenced him to six months in federal prison. While in prison, federal judges ordered the seizure and liquidation of Stich's $10 million in real estate, which had funded Stich's exposure activities. This seizure violated the due process requirements of a hearing, notice of hearing, and legally required cause.
Many fatal airline crashes occurred in Stich’s area
of air safety responsibilities, and most of the crashes were
preceded by his written warnings of the impending crashes.

& 21st Centuries.)
airline crashes resulting from documented misconduct and criminal
acts by government personnel.
While some off these crashes were occurring, Stich was acting as a
independent prosecutor in the FAA conducting a four-month-long
adversary hearing in the FAA, obtaining testimony and documents
proving his charges of a pattern of corruption related to a series
of specific and ongoing airline crashes.
Documented examples of
NTSB cover-up of air
safety misconduct as Stich put them formally on notice of
corrupt activities within the FAA and their relationship to specific
prior airline crashes, and warnings of further crashes that would
result from the problems and cover-ups. NTSB cover-up permitted the
continuation of the air safety problems and corruption which then
resulted in closely related fatal airline crashes, requiring the
NTSB Board members to further cover up and falsify official accident
He filed several federal lawsuits seeking to expose the misconduct in the aviation environment. These actions resulted in a covert CIA law firm and government personnel, acting together, corruptly stripping Stich of a multi-million-dollar estate that funded his exposure activities. The tactics used to strip Stich of these assets would make for several TV episodes by themselves.
Airline Crashes Associated With Public
Interest Aspects, in Which Stich's Actions
DC-8 crash into
New York City on December 16, 1960, when one boy survived for two days, the
warnings by FAA inspectors of major safety problems and safety violations
that were ignored, and the retaliation against the reporting inspector. That
was the world's worst aviation disaster at the time and the enabling
corruption covered up in standard U.S. practice.
DC-8 crash at Denver and the people cremated alive,
combined with the harassment of FAA inspectors reporting serious
safety problems before the crash, and the continued threats against
inspectors after the crash who reported the same safety problems,
and the crashes that resulted.
Boeing 727 crash at Salt Lake City
in which 43 people were cremated alive, due to serious problems that Stich
had repeatedly reported and tried to correct. That crash is a classic,
following numerous written prior reports by FAA inspector Rodney Stich of
the three areas of blame identified by the NTSB, and a series of criminal

FAA inspector Stich conducting a six month hearing as a self-appointed independent prosecutor to document the corrupt acts associated with a series of fatal airline crashes. During the hearing, that same airline experienced three major crashes, including the Salt Lake City crash and a crash into Lake Michigan. There had never been such a hearing within the FAA and probably will never again occur. This would be a fabulous TV show reflecting the culture within the FAA.
Start with the serious problems in the
government's aviation safety offices, the attempts to correct the problems,
the blocks, and the retaliation.
Shortly before the hijackings of
four airliners on September 11, 2001, Stich made a final attempt, prior
to 9/11, to report the corrupt conditions in the government's aviation
safety offices (that were responsible for the failure to require the
known preventative measures against the worldwide hijackings); and the
corrupt conditions in the FBI and CIA that were responsible for the
refusal to allow actions taken to prevent carrying out the hijacking
scheme, for which there had been ample warnings. That action, filed in
the federal courts at
Reno, Nevada. The federal judge blocked Stich from making the
reports, which continued the prior obstruction of justice practice, and
also served to protect exposing the actions of the prior federal judges.
Stich made his last attempt to
report the continuing corruption that made 9/11 possible by filing a
federal action in the federal courts in New York City where most of the 9/11 litigation
was occurring. Federal judges engaged in unlawful measures to prevent
this information from being reported.
Prior information on plans by al Qaeda
personnel to hijack U.S. airliners obtained by a mole inside al Qaeda's
primary bombing cell was deep-sixthed to protect a key FBI supervisor
involved in murders.
www.defraudingamerica.com/al_qaeda_index.html. That was followed by
cover-up by the Department of Justice-controlled 9/11 Commission.
After that judicial cover-up, and entering his 80s, Stich abandoned his efforts, except for writing books and maintaining a web site.
Consider: Responsibility for preventing hijacking of
airliners has been with the aviation safety personnel in the
Federal Aviation Administration. (This is where the PRIMARY blame
lies for the successful hijackings of four airliners by 19
hijackers on 9/11.)
Fatal hijackings had been occurring for the prior
FAA inspectors, including Stich, had been reporting
this danger and the preventative measures, as had other federal
aviation safety inspectors.
FAA inspectors, including Stich, had been told not
to make reports of safety problems or safety violations as a
post-crash investigation would reflect badly upon the FAA—and its
management—if such reports were in the file.
Congress were repeatedly informed of these matters, starting in 1966, and
never once did they take any corrective measures other than cover-up.

Repeated Cover-Ups by Federal Judges
And Criminal Contempt of Court Charges For
Reporting High-Level Corruption
The corrupt involvement by large numbers of federal judges is well documented in numerous legal actions. Among the many corrupt acts that knowingly obstructed justice includes:
Repeatedly refusing to receive the evidence of the crimes
against the United States that were being presented to them under the
federal crime reporting statute, which they were required to receive as
part of their administrative (not judicial) duties.
Repeatedly issued unlawful and unconstitutional orders
forever barring Stich from filing any papers in any federal district or
appellate court. These orders knowingly blocked Stich and his other
former government agents from reporting criminal and even subversive
activities, and blocked Stich from exercising federal defenses against
the parallel legal actions
being taken against him by lawyers also seeking to halt his exposure
activities. The first of these sham legal actions that
blocks of state and federal laws was taken by the CIA-front San
Francisco law firm of Friedman, Sloan and Ross (and their
lawyers), followed by
numerous other lawyers, and then, starting in 2001, a
North Carolina law firm,
using a possible wife murderer as the plaintiff, and then a
Los Angeles area law firm.
Over 50 lawyers and law firms were involved in trying to prevent Stich
from continuing to expose the pyramiding criminal activities.
Charging Stich with criminal contempt of court for filing
papers in federal court seeking to report
that Stich was required to report to a federal judge under the federal
crime reporting statute.
Unlawfully and unconstitutionally seized Stich's $10
million in real estate
assets, without any hearing, without notice, and without legal
cause, and liquidating them, enriching the lawyers that had earlier
sought to halt Stich's activities through the sham lawsuits that
violated numerous federally protected rights.
Compounding the misuse of the federal courts as a
racketeering enterprise were Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court who
knew, from the filing of the first lawsuit in the late 1970s to the
filing of papers with the U.S. Supreme Court in 2004, who knew of the
criminal activities, who knew of the obstruction of justice and felony
retaliation by federal judges, and who became criminally complicit by
aiding and abetting these acts.
Supreme Court Justices'
Although it sounds bizarre, the facts stated in the lawsuit against the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court justify the filing. Lawsuit against the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, The Justices responded by admitting that they knew of the charges, that they did nothing in response, but that they were immune. Despite the newsworthiness of reporting that lawsuit against the Justices, possibly the only time in the nation's history that it was done, not a word of it appeared in the media.
Complicity by Members of Congress―
Joining Long List of Enablers
Of Great National Tragedies
Stich started providing detailed information on the
corruption within the government's aviation safety offices, associated
with several specific airline disasters. while he was a federal
investigator-inspector, and had the documents to support his charges.
Their cover-ups permitted decades of airline disasters to occur, including
the one-day's consequences on 9/11.
As Stich learned of other areas of
government, both from his own direct discoveries plus information and
documentation provided by his many confidants, Stich repeatedly attempted
to report these serious matters affecting national interests and national
security to members of Congress. The same cover-ups and obstruction of
justice occurred, with dire consequences for the country.
A partial list
of the letters sent to
members of Congress during the past 40 years shows these contacts.
Seeking to make a government record of the cover-ups and obstruction of justice by members of Congress, Stich filed a federal lawsuit against several of the many that were guilty. Their response was that they knew of the charges, that they did nothing about them, but that they were totally immune for the consequences under the speech and debate clause.
Stich started informing media people of the corruption
related to a series of major airline disasters, including some that
occurred in his immediate area of government air safety responsibilities.
Never once did they respond.
Over the next 40 years, Stich repeatedly provided them
information on corruption in other areas of misconduct in government,
often with information provided by FBI, CIA, Mafia informants. Again,
never once did they respond, despite the gravity of the charges, the
gravity of the prior consequences, and the gravity of future consequences
arising from the cover-ups.
Stich even filed
against several major media companies on the basis of felony
cover-ups. Their response was that they knew of the charges being made,
that they did not act upon the information, but that they were immune from
Many major tragedies were made possible by their cover-ups.
Acting similar to
independent prosecutor while holding key safety position in the government's
aviation safety offices.
Stich filed lawsuits as a creative way to circumvent the cover-ups, to document his charges and to document the cover-ups. The allegations in the lawsuits were sound, and not based upon far-fetched theories. In each lawsuit, the defendants admitted they knew of Stich’s allegations of deadly criminal and subversive conduct involving people in government, that they did nothing with the offer to provide evidence, and defended on the basis of alleged immunity for their actions and inactions.
against members of Congress for their complicity in cover-ups of
criminal and subversive activities.
against several major newspapers addressing their cover-ups of
criminal activities in government offices.
Lawsuits against the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, addressing their complicity in the cove-ups.
All of these unusual actions were taken seeking to circumvent the massive blocks that enabled the corruption and the related major tragedies to continue, rather than just call it quits and let the tragedies continue.
Brief bio on Rodney Stich
Rodney Stich was a Navy Patrol Plane Commander in World War II, an international airline captain after the war, and one of the first pilots licensed by Japan (Nr. 170), and a pilot for Japan Airlines when it started up; an inspector-investigator for the FAA, assigned safety responsibilities for the most senior program at United Airlines while the airline was experiencing record-setting numbers of fatal airline crashes. He has been a guest on over 3,000 radio and television shows in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Europe since 1978. Probably the most active crusader with an endless series of interesting exploits. His books have been considered several times for television series, the first by producer Jackie Cooper and in the mid-1990s, a television series based upon his book, Defrauding America. www.defraudingamerica.com/stich_bio.html.
Stich started his
aviation career as a crewmember on a Navy PBY Catalina patrol plane in 1941,
prior to the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, and until 2001, he was
continual active in the aviation community.
experiences in the life of an
international airline pilot with an airline described in a
three-article series of the Saturday Evening Post (1950). The
series were called the Daring Young Men of Transocean Airlines.
Famed writer Ernie Gann, and Stich, flew with that same airline.
Some pictures of his flying activities can be found by
different type of flying he did was flying planeloads of Moslem pilgrims from various Middle East
cities to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina. (Pick-up points
included Baghdad, Beirut, Jerusalem, Tehran, and Abadan.) Interesting
events would include Hajji making fires in the cabin to heat their
tea; throwing trash such as watermelon rimes in the pockets at the
back of seats.
Caught in an Iranian revolution
(1953) while flying Muslim pilgrims to the holy cities of Mecca and
Medina. That revolution was the
CIA-engineered revolution that generated the great hatred for the United
States among Iranians. Mossadegh was being overthrown by the CIA’s Shah.

aircraft emergencies that Stich experienced during his many flying
years of Navy and airline flying.
Some comical, some serious, such as engine failures on takeoff, high
winds that threaten to cause fuel exhaustion before arriving at
landfall, engine fires, and much more.
such as rejected takeoffs of large aircraft on short and wet
runways, engine failures on takeoff and barely missing buildings;
adverse winds on the North Atlantic that makes it doubtful there is
enough fuel to reach an airport; sudden change of all airport
weather, as in the Gander area, all becoming zero-zero as the
passenger aircraft arrived at its destination.
Many other interesting experiences which the Saturday Evening Post described in a three-part series in 1950 called “The Daring Young Men of Transocean Airlines.” Ernie Gann flew for the same airline.
years of David versus Goliath battles,
while Stich single-handedly fighting
These attacks were followed by total seizure of Stich's $10 million
estate, including his businesses, his home, his aircraft, and
eventually, even his freedom.
While he was a
federal aviation administration inspector-investigator, he was given the
unusual hands-on assignment to correct the conditions resulting in the
worst series of
airline disasters in the nation's history. In those days, a major
airline crash was occurring often every few months. By accepting this
challenge, his entire life was affected, and will be affected until the day
He discovered a
level of arrogance and corruption within the FAA, and at a major airline, interspersed with
period crashes and deaths. His attempts to report and correct the problems
resulted in retaliation, destruction of reports, which continued the
subversion of the FAA's air safety responsibilities, which continues to a
far lesser extent today, but which made possible the 9/11 hijackings, a
matter so far kept from the public.
The gravity of the
consequences caused him to initiate a series of tasks that were and are
unprecedented. At total disregard for his future, he used the law in such a
manner that he acted similar to an independent prosecutor, conducting
several months of hearings that further documented the relationship between
the corruption and the crashes and deaths of thousands of people. During the
hearings, three additional major airline disasters occurred, each one
caused by the very same safety problems that Stich had repeatedly reported
in writing, for which he suffered retaliation. The most classic of these
crashes was a United Airlines crash at Salt Lake City that resulted in 43
people being cremated alive.
cover-up that followed the hearing caused Stich to leave government service.
As the corruption and crashes continued, Stich filed federal actions and
also wrote books seeking to circumvent the cover-ups and motivate people to
help expose the serious problems.
from the books and the hundreds of radio and TV appearances caused him to become a national focal point for
government agents and deep-cover operatives who provided
him with data and documentation on covert activities in other areas
of government. Some of the
activities revealed to Stich have been put in the various
books that he has written in
collaboration with them.
Stich's books have twice been considered for television series. The first was in 1979 when producer Jackie Cooper contacted Stich for a three-part television series on the first edition of Unfriendly Skies. (Lack of funding halted the project.) The second time was in the mid-1990s when Stich was contacted twice by television production studios stating they were interested in doing a television series on the contents of the book, Defrauding America.
The various actions taken to block him from
exposing the corruption (actions while an FAA inspector; sham
lawsuits filed by CIA-front law firm to silence him; the seizure
of his $10 million real estate assets to silence him; sentenced to
federal prison on contempt of court charge for attempting to
report criminal activities to a federal judge under the federal
crime reporting statute, 18 U.S.C. § 4, and much more.)
His actions as probably the
whistleblower in the country, the corruption he sought to
expose, the unusual actions he took to expose the problems, and
the retaliation he suffered. The matters that he sought to expose
were all of major national significance.

books contain enough
information for years of exciting modern-day television series that can
entertain and inform the people on matters of major national importance.
on Stich personal life is found in the book, David vs. Goliath: 9/11 and
Other Tragedies (available form amazon.com).
Because of the
gravity of the corrupt activities, the many deaths and other harm arising
from them, and the many people implicated, it is highly doubtful that a
television series will occur unless some very courageous producer appears
that values American interests more than protecting the present culture that
is mutating throughout government and society.
It is possible,
due to the universal tendency of U.S. media personnel to avoid government
corruption when it goes beyond a certain point, that foreign television
producers may wish to consider this subject.

Sampling of Early Consequences
Years-Later Continuation of Consequences
These few examples of the horrors associated with airline disasters enabled to occur by documented corruption withheld from the American people. The standard culture of cover-ups in the United States enabled the corruption, cover-ups, to mutate into different areas. In the aviation area, although the continuing series of airline disasters eventually came to a halt for other reasons, the culture continued, and enabled to occur a number of easily preventable airline disasters. The inbred culture created the conditions that enabled four groups of terrorists to easily hijack four airliners within a few hours of each other and kill nearly 3,000 people.
One of Over 200 Victims Choosing This Way to Die—
Made Possible by Many Enablers in United States
Victims of Other Forms of Corrupt Bureaucrats That Stich Exposed
There were many other forms of victims from the systemic high-level corruption. These included for instance victims of the:
Department of Justice prosecutorial misconduct, people being falsely charges with crimes in order to improve the prosecutors' career.
The explosion of violent crime related to drug smuggling into the United States, in which CIA assets were major players.
Series of financial frauds appearing every few years, with the latest housing and financial implosions surfacing in 2008.
Seizure of assets from innocent people.
And many other forms.
These offenses are described in the books written by insiders.
Corruption of the Type Described at this site does not occur in a vacuum. High-level corruption in one area is simply one tentacle of a widespread culture of corruption. And the consequences of that corruption−and the endemic cover-ups−have consequences in other areas. The culture of corruption affects the people and the nation in many other ways, That includes the latest series of financial frauds that has occurred in the housing and financial sectors. Also, the effect of the endemic corruption and endemic cover-ups−major parts of the culture in the United States−that enablers successful terrorist attacks upon U.S. interests.
Harm Suffered by People in Other Countries From
Conduct of Corrupt U.S. Leaders
In addition to the decades of harm resulting from the systemic corruption of key people and groups in the U.S. government, affecting aviation safety, financial, human rights, in the United States, there is the harm from outside sources brought about by the actions of U.S. politicians affecting people in other countries—such as the history of invading and killing foreigners—there are the successful "terrorist" attacks made possible by high-level corruption, and then there are the foreigners who are also victims from the same high-level corruption that adversely affects the American, but in a different form.
In criminal law, people are accomplices, and guilty, if they know of a criminal act and fail to report it to proper authorities and also to take efforts within their capability to halt their continuation. And there are endless numbers of accomplices that are complicit in these crimes and enablers of the consequences.
Suggestion to people outside the United States. Become familiar with the documented systemic corruption in the United States and show the outrage lacking of people in the United States, and:
Help expose the endemic corruption that seem to be acceptable to the American people, and maybe wake them up.
Help to protect yourselves against the decades of ham inflicted upon people of other countries by the actions of U.S. politicians—supported by much of the American public. Examples:
Serial lying by U.S. politicians to use as a pretense to invade Iraq and Afghanistan, killing tens of thousands of innocent people.
U.S. politicians shifting enabling blame from their own corrupt actions that encouraged and enabled four groups of terrorists to simultaneously hijack four airliners, and shift the blame to the people of Iraq and Afghanistan—with the help of a dumbed-down American public that is mostly too lazy to learn the truth.
