US Presidential Aspirants Resemble an FBI Most Wanted List

US Presidential Aspirants Resemble an FBI Most Wanted List

by Stephen Lendman

America is run by a criminal aristocracy - a one-party system with two wings, serving monied interests exclusively at the expense of beneficial social change.

Their agenda no matter who’s president or heading key congressional committees features: 

  • an obsession with national security at a time America’s only enemies are ones it invents;

  • waging phony war on terror;

  • endless direct and proxy wars of aggression;

  • more spent on militarism and belligerence than the rest of the world combined;

  • multi-billions of dollars in corporate handouts;

  • social injustice;

  • a draconian criminal justice system;

  • global black site torture prisons;

  • massive public and private corruption;

  • rigged elections;

  • controlled mass media; and

  • hardline crackdowns on nonbelievers.

Nations run this way are called police states. America is the world’s leading purveyor of state terrorism. It’s perilously close to full-blown tyranny - perhaps just another major false flag attack away.

Donald Trump wants to build the great wall of Mexico, sealing off America’s southern border from an economic refugee flood caused by destructive US trade policy.

Fellow presidential aspirant Scott Walker is best known for union busting, public worker wage cuts, doubling their health insurance and pension contributions, and firing any state employee opposing his draconian agenda by participating in strikes, work stoppages or slowdowns.

As president, he wants to build the great wall of Canada along the world’s longest border - from sea to shining sea, separating America from its northern neighbor, stopping a nonexistent immigrant and terrorist flood south, sealing off the nation’s border with Mexico the same way.

“Some people asked us about” walling off both countries, he said. “They raised some very legitimate concerns, including some law-enforcement folks that brought that up to me at one of our town-hall meetings about a week and a half ago. So that is a legitimate issue for us to look at.”

America spends huge sums on air and seaport security. Walker urges the same policy for the nation’s northern and southern borders.

He wants more than walls. Add an intelligence component, he urges - “for counterterrorism and the ability to go after the infrastructure (needed) to protect us.”

Fellow presidential aspirant Chris Christie wants foreign visitors tracked like FedEx packages. Nations obsessed with security like America destroy it altogether for its citizens.

America’s greatest threat is itself - against people worldwide wanting to live free from its scourge.
