  1. Search “Operation Condor” to learn what CIA did to South America in the 60’s. The real idea US gov. has about democracy.

      Naomi Klein’s “Shock Doctrine” details a lot of stuff about our economic terrorism down south.

    • Even better, read Thy Will Be Done by Gerard Colby with Charlotte Dennett, to get a perspective of what havoc they wreaked during the 1980s as well. (P.S. Joseph Alsop, mentioned in that vid, was the cousin of one Kermit Roosevelt, CIA, awarded for his help in masterminding the overthrow of the democratically elected president of Iran in the early 1950s (during Eisenhower administration) with a senior position at Gulf Oil (Mellon family-owned).)

      • I heard that Rockfeller tried to impose the “american way” to the locals there. In the end there was a big revolt.

    I’d love to see an expose
    about nefarious things Der Homeland Security is NOT involved with
    I want to be shocked by those revelations

    ” . . . history of government infiltration in news media . . . ”

    Okay. Spokesmodel for an arm of the Russian government says this with a straight face? Seriously? The Slavs certainly do enjoy heroic doses or irony, don’t they?

    Come on, Abby. Where’s your expose of the thousands of Russians high tailing it out of Syria, after their puppet dictator gets a dose of his own?

    • ‘dose of his own’

      Implying imperialistic North American’s attempt to install a yet another puppet government in the Middle East is *justice*?

      To be fair to Abby, she actually acknowledged these shortcomings in our interview on the podcast. She said something to the effect that she knows that scrutinizing Putin and his bunch would put her out of a job. Interesting talk.
