An Explanation of the Koch Brothers That Will Challenge Your Faith in Our Democracy

Posted on February 3rd, 2018 in General by Robert Miller

I am currently reading a book, Democracy in Chains: the deep history of the Radical Right’s Stealth Plan for America, written by Nancy MacLean, who is a history professor at Duke University.  Basically it is the story of how the Koch brothers came to plan a sinister, anti-democratic movement for the future of America. To read the book click  HERE.

I urge ever person to read this book as it will inform you all about the sinister plans the Koch brothers have in store for our democracy. These people are serious and they are well on there way to achieving a complete victory. Basically, the Koch brothers have a very undemocratic government in store for us, one that will challenge the fate of our current democracy.

This undemocratic movement started with James M. Buchanan. Buchanan is a political economist, which means he studies politicians, but his real skill is in devising ways to keep the cultural wars burning. He does this by dividing people according to how the view any thing at a particular moment. For example, Buchanan hates the idea behind Social Security, so he devises examples that pit 60 year old seniors, who are just going into retirement, against the people  already in their retirement years. He tells the people who are just about to enter their retirement that the system is rapidly going broke and there will not be enough money left to support them, creating resentment against those already enjoying retirement. He was an adviser to Pinochet, who overthrew Allende, the democratically elected President of Brazil. I assume you all know how that turned out. You can see a video on James M. Buchanan here 

Initially, all the Republican nominees that were running for the presidency in the 2016 election agreed to follow the lead generated by the Koch brothers. The one who wouldn’t, Donald J. Trump, chose not to go along for some reason during the campaign but has fallen in line as President.

This is not the Republican party of your grandparents. That went out the window many elections in the past. I don’t know how far up the ladder of the party the beliefs have gone or how many have drunk the Kool-Aid, but I am very sure it is not just a few politicians. This new tax legislation demonstrates this glaringly. It benefits the wealthy and corporations over the average tax payer. Not more than a few hours ago I heard that the average worker will take home an extra $15.00 dollars a week, which is chicken scratch compared to the thousands the wealthy will get in breaks. Yet a percentage of the public continues to admire them for this accomplishment, ignoring how little it benefits the average citizen. As I have said, you need to read the book to find out how all of this has evolved.

While I have loved writing this blog and reading and thinking deeply in order to write it, this will be my last Miller’s Circle. As the cliche states, all good things must come to an end and, while this has been very good for me and I hope for you as well, it is time for me to turn my attention to retirement and other pursuits.

Why the Present Donald Trump is not releasing the JFK Murder Documents

Posted on October 27th, 2017 in Politics by Robert Miller

Today we learned that the White House is not releasing the JFK assassination documents; but the reason behind their release has not been identified. Was it requested by the CIA, or the FBI, at this point the reasons behind the release has not been identified. Maybe we will never know, who kept the lid on the release of documents. In truth some documents have been released, but are these the documents that really count. I am guilty of harboring suspicions of my own, after reading to of David Talbot’s extensively documented tales of the assassination. In one account he accused Allen Dulles and James Jesus Angleton of masterminding the assassination of JFK. At one time during the weekend of the assassination, Allen Dulles was once holed up at the “Black Site of the CIA headquarters,”  while James Jesus Angleton, was somewhere else. Whatever the outcome may be perhaps we will never know the truth to this story, I am very depressed. I thought for this one last time we will finally learn the truth about the JFK assassination, but apparently I was wrong. The documents are now scheduled for release some time in April, 2018. I wish I could be more positive than this, but I am now looking forward to some time April, 2018. I hope I will not be disappointed this time.

We have just been informed that the material was redacted making the entire document “unreadable.”  Now David Talbot is free to speculate on what might have been possible. David Talbot wrote the Devils Chessbord. We will never know the truth about the muder of JFK.

Just Transmitted a post that is wacky

Posted on August 31st, 2017 in General by Robert Miller

I just transmitted a post that includes very wacky; the first thing you notice is that the text appears very narrow, as if it was formatted in a single column. I must confess that I don’t know how to fix it at this point, and if any one else does I will yield to his expertise.

Sorry about that, best wishes,

RFM
