The Assassination Nation

by Michael Walsh

WHEN TWO years ago the Russian-Jewish oligarch, Boris Nemtsov, was assassinated in Moscow, the justly-scorned “Western” media described the notorious playboy as “Putin’s opposition.” Yet in electoral terms the playboy oligarch was less popular in Russia than Screaming Lord Sutch’s absurd Monster Raving Loony Party was in Britain. At least the latter gathered enough votes to gain seats. It is doubtful if President Putin, with a popularity rating of 86%, lost much sleep over such a “threat.”

Britain’s then-Prime Minister David Cameron had the impudence to demand Russia hold a “transparent investigation” into the murder. This is the same Etonian who covers up, denies, or delays a score or more inquiries into real corruption — sexual, political, and financial. These cover-ups include the murder of government weapons expert Dr. David Kelly.

The United States has a far worse record of assassination than does modern Russia. Between 1970 and 2013 there have been 758 assassinations worldwide. Of these only eight per cent. occurred in Russia, the world’s largest country.

The US tops the Assassination of Political Inconveniences League. Since 1865, more American heads of state have been assassinated than in any other country. Abraham Lincoln (1865), James A. Garfield (1882), William McKinley (1901), and John F. Kennedy (1963). The latter was almost certainly disposed of by the CIA.

There was also an attempted assassination of Franklin D. Roosevelt in Miami on February 15, 1933. President Theodore Roosevelt was injured in an assassination attempt in 1912, and President Ronald Reagan was badly wounded in 1981. In November 1950, Puerto Rican nationalists sought to murder President Harry S. Truman in a shootout. During and following World War 2 there was a wave of convenient “suicides” throughout the United States. These included the deaths of Harry Dexter White, Stephen Duggan, and former US Ambassador to Britain John G. Winant.

General George S. Patton died when the Jeep he was travelling in was “accidentally” rammed while driving in defeated Germany. The general, an outspoken critic of (unelected) President Truman’s regime, had earlier written to his wife and predicted he would not be coming home.

Another US policy critic was Secretary of Defense James Forrestal. Diagnosed as being “deeply depressed,” he was placed in an upper-floor room of a Washington, DC hospital. On May 22, 1949, he “fell” from its open window. Why was such an important man, and a man in such a state, not given a ground floor room with a sealed window? Why was he not sufficiently guarded?

William Colby spilled the beans on the corruption endemic in the White House. He also told all about the widespread corruption throughout the US governing elite and the corporate media. This former CIA Director really should have taken the Edward Snowden route to Russia: Soon after he began speaking out, William Colby died in a mysterious boating “accident.”

In the US, more than 40 high-profile bankers died recently under suspicious circumstances. The European Union, for its part, records more assassinations than does Russia: Is the EU trying to catch up with the US, perhaps?

This might be a good time to remember that of late no fewer than 12 notable US political figures have been murdered or discovered dead under suspicious circumstances. These include Senators, Congressmen, federal prosecutors, a federal judge, and a governor; all died after they, unwisely perhaps, questioned government corruption or corporate malpractice.

Yes, isn’t it odd how in the freest and safest land on earth, the land of opportunity, that more heads of state and political dignitaries would be assassinated, disappeared or “suicided” than in even the most lawless states in Africa? Don’t forget this phenomenon goes back further than Lincoln, to 1835 when an attempt was made to assassinate President Andrew Jackson, who only survived because the assailant’s gun misfired twice. Of course, this “completely spontaneous” event happened shortly after Jackson “killed the bank”, in his own words, and ended America’s second disastrous economic experiment with a national bank that destroyed the economy. He refused to sign the renewal charter, and the bankers lost their control over America until 1913 and the creation of the Federal Reserve. It should also be… Read more »

I might add the recent death under suspicious circumstances of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. I recently read Michael Collins Piper’s “Final Judgement: The Missing Link in the JFK Assassination Conspiracy” and I found its contention very plausible. By the way, not too long after publishing his book, Mr. Piper obligingly dropped dead of heart problems… at the age of 55. Hmm….. The purport of “Final Judgement” was that Kennedy was assassinated because he opposed the acquisition of nuclear weapons by Israel, and that the conspiracy to assassinate JFK involved the CIA’s James Angleton, organized crime’s Meyer Lansky and Israel’s prime minister David Ben-Gurion and Israel’s Mossad, along with many many other lesser players. And all of these are only the domestic victims. What would the list look like if… Read more »
