The JFK Assassination and the Evolution Of The Corporate Security State 1933-2013

As we approach the 50th anniversary of JFK’s murder it is important we look back and see how much the world has changed. President Eisenhower tried to warn America and Kennedy tried to stop it but the government has become a national security apparatus for the corpoate elite. And as we enter the second decade of the 21st centurycorporate facisim  has become a global empire. We present this video as an educational resource with hopes it will make viewers pay closer attention to these issues.

"When Oliver Stones movie JFK opened in December 1991 a huge PR campaign was mobilized against the film. Even progressives spoke out. Noam Chomsky wrote in support of the Warren Commission's findings in contrast Michael Parenti gave one of his highly acclaimed talks criticizing the lone assassin theory. The bitter questions that haunted defenders and critics alike was whether government agencies of a democratic country would do such a thing as assassinate an elected President.

And here is Eisenhowers "farewell" speech where he warns the country about the dangers of the military industrial state.

This is an interesting clip from the Real News that traces the path we've been on since Ike's warning.

This is not a new story in 1933 there was corporate plot to overthrow Roosevelt that was exposed when they tried to get Smeadly Butler Marine Corp Commandant and two time CMH winner.
