A recent book I came across, Donald Jeffries' Hidden History, tackles a conversation mainstream media won't permit to occur. Jeffries' book begins with a thorough look at the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Any American who hasn't been taught or refuses to accept that elements of our own government planned, executed and then covered up President Kennedy's assassination, are missing the Rosetta Stone for understanding contemporary American history. One could make a strong argument that without the Kennedy assassination, the Vietnam War, the King and RFK assassinations, Watergate, Iran-Contra, the first Gulf War, Oklahoma City Bombing, 9/11 and the War on Terrorism would have never come to fruition. These are all topics Jeffries tackles in his book, plus much more.
Imagine what America might be like today if our country had heeded President Dwight D. Eisenhower's warning about the creeping power of the military/industrial complex? In the introduction to his book, Jeffries paints a sobering picture of what America looks like today with staggeringly high, chronic unemployment in the double-digits hidden from the official government unemployment numbers, the loss of our manufacturing industries, growing income disparity, the declining health of our people as measured by key indicators like life expectancy and infant mortality despite spending far more on health care than any other country in the world, large prison populations, and young Americans drowning in student loan debt, all leaving one to wonder why our government resources are so poorly allocated among its people. I highly recommend the book to anyone who seeks the truth, not the spoon-fed lies we get from our government and mainstream media reporting Here's an interview InfoWars' Rob Dew did with Jeffries recently in which he discusses Hidden History.
