The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government

 The Devil's Chessboard
This is a bold and profoundly important book, not only for the portrait of the evil spymaster Allen Dulles, but even more so for its examination of the legacy he spawned – the creation of a cabal hidden behind the public  face of  the United States  government  that  secretly  runs  the country  today  on behalf  of wealthy elites.

The psychopathic Allen Dulles was the enforcer for this group, called “the power elite” by C. Wright Mills in the 1950s.  In recent years, especially since September 11, 2001, as its power has expanded, it has been given different names – the deep state, the national security state, deep politics,etc. – but that has not diminished its power one jot.  Like a patient who goes to a doctor seeking a label for vague yet disturbing symptoms, people may feel relief from the naming, but the dis-ease continues until the root cause is eliminated.  Aye, there’s the rub!  (more...)

  2. Hi Brian. There's a better link to that show on BOR's YouTube channel:

    I'm not familiar with BOR, so I can't endorse it.There seems to be an abundance of disinformation and managed opposition all over the web.
