How America’s Modern Shadow Government Can Be Traced Back To One Very Evil Man – Allen Dulles

Allen Dulles

Associate Editor’s note: I know Mother Jones is a leftist website, as I know David Talbot is a leftist. However, the article and David’s book have a lot to say about one of the most evil of men in the 20th Century, that being Allen Dulles. If you are not aware of his evil deeds, it is time you learned. Sometimes the left presents good evidence, though only about people they consider non-leftists. – Shorty Dawkins

This article comes from Liberty Blitzkrieg.

by Michael Krieger

Allen Dulles, the CIA director under presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy, the younger brother of Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, and the architect of a secretive national security apparatus that functioned as essentially an autonomous branch of government. Talbot offers a portrait of a black-and-white Cold War-era world full of spy games and nuclear brinkmanship, in which everyone is either a good guy or a bad guy. Dulles—who deceived American elected leaders and overthrew foreign ones, who backed ex-Nazis and thwarted left-leaning democrats—falls firmly in the latter camp. 

But what I was really trying to do was a biography on the American power elite from World War II up to the 60s. That was the key period when the national security state was constructed in this country, and where it begins to overshadow American democracy. It’s almost like Game of Thrones to me, where you have the dynastic struggles between these power groups within the American system for control of the country and the world…

Absolutely. The surveillance state that Snowden and others have exposed is very much a legacy of the Dulles past. I think Dulles would have been delighted by how technology and other developments have allowed the American security state to go much further than he went. He had to build a team of cutthroats and assassins on the ground to go around eliminating the people he wanted to eliminate, who he felt were in the way of American interests. He called them communists. We call them terrorists today. And of course the most controversial part of my book, I’m sure, will be the end, where I say there was blowback from that. Because that killing machine in some way was brought back home.

– From the Mother Jones article: You Think the NSA Is Bad? Meet Former CIA Director Allen Dulles

Many of you will be intimately familiar with the name Allen Dulles. Younger readers, of my generation or below, will be far less so. It is precisely because the youth of this nation remain so ignorant of the nefarious characters in America’s past, that David Talbot’s recently published book, The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government, is so incredibly important.

Mr. Talbot has been recently conducting invaluable interviews about the book with various media organizations. One of the best I’ve seen is with Mother Jones. Here’s some of what he had to say about America’s longest serving CIA director:

But what I was really trying to do was a biography on the American power elite from World War II up to the 60s. That was the key period when the national security state was constructed in this country, and where it begins to overshadow American democracy. It’s almost like Game of Thrones to me, where you have the dynastic struggles between these power groups within the American system for control of the country and the world.

I focused on those elements that I thought were important to understanding him. I thought other books covered that ground fairly well before me. But what they left out was the interesting nuances and shadow aspects of Dulles’s biography. I think that you can make a case, although I didn’t explicitly say this in the book, for Allen Dulles being a psychopath.

They’ve done studies of people in power, and they all have to be, to some extent, on the spectrum. You have to be unfeeling to a certain extent to send people to their death in war and take the kind of actions that men and women in power routinely have to take. But with Dulles, I think he went to the next step. His own wife and mistress called him “the Shark.” His favorite word was whether you were “useful” to him or not. And this went for people he was sleeping with or people he was manipulating in espionage or so on. He was the kind of man that could cold-bloodedly, again and again, send people to their death, including people he was familiar with and supposedly fond of.

There’s a thread there between people like Dulles up through Dick Cheney and [Donald] Rumsfeld—who was sitting at Dulles’s knee at one point. I was fascinated to find that correspondence between a young Congressman Rumsfeld and Allen Dulles, who he was looking to for wisdom and guidance as a young politician.

Absolutely. The surveillance state that Snowden and others have exposed is very much a legacy of the Dulles past. I think Dulles would have been delighted by how technology and other developments have allowed the American security state to go much further than he went. He had to build a team of cutthroats and assassins on the ground to go around eliminating the people he wanted to eliminate, who he felt were in the way of American interests. He called them communists. We call them terrorists today. And of course the most controversial part of my book, I’m sure, will be the end, where I say there was blowback from that. Because that killing machine in some way was brought back home.

How about Dulles’ role in the assassination of JFK? Talbot pulls no punches here either…

To me it’s one of the greatest examples of media incompetence and negligence in American history. I even confronted Ben Bradlee about this, who was probably JFK’s closest friend in the Washington press corps and wrote a book all about JFK and their close friendship. “Why didn’t you, with your investigative resources, try to get [to] the bottom of it?” You should read what he says in Brothers, but basically it came down to, “Well, I thought it would ruin my career.”

I think I have studied this about as much as anyone in my generation at this point, and my final conclusion after 50 years was we have to go there, we have to look at the fact that there’s a wealth of circumstantial evidence that says not only was there, at the highest level, CIA involvement. Probably in the assassination cover-up. But beyond the CIA, because the CIA wouldn’t have acted on its own.

But the CIA are good guys now. Or so the propagandized American public believes…

  1. All of this is up to us. We have, in some instances, said “no” (very little letters) instead of enforcing the US Constitution. Basically, if we do not start enforcing her, supporting her, and DEFENDING her from all sides, we will have given our nation and most of our lives away for nothing.

    It is always hard to take actions. But I am not talking about actions such as violence – that we must let come to us – but starting in the most obvious place of all in a nation created and ruled by all laws that are in Pursuance thereof the supreme LAW, the US Constitution – by bringing charges, and using Grand Jury Investigations while continuing to build the only constitutionally authorized force required in America at this time, the Militias.

    Remember that judges are allowed to remain in the position they occupy, and any judge the goes outside of the Constitutional boundaries they are lawfully BOUND by must be removed for not using “Good Behaviour” as required of them. Amazingly enough the US Constitution itself tells us what is good behavior for judge within the US Constitution when it assigns them their duties and requires that they take and KEEP an Oath.

    Part of their duties is to rein in the other two branches when they go beyond the boundaries assigned to them as this example shows.

    Judge Wythe (John Marshall’s law teacher) in his opinion in “Caton” where he indicated that it is a judge’s responsibility to check overreaching by the political branches when he said,

    “If the whole legislature, an event to be deprecated, should attempt to overleap the bounds, prescribed to them by the people, I, in administering the public justice of the country, will meet the united powers, at my seat in this tribunal; and, pointing to the constitution, will say, to them, here is the limit of your authority; and, hither, shall you go, but no further.”

    BTW, the US Constitution says that IT is supreme, and that all laws, TREATIES, regulations, codes, etc MUST be in Pursuance thereof it; not those who serve within our governments, not foreign laws, not foreign entities, not the military, not law enforcement, not the CIA, FBI, IRS, foreign owned banking cartel, or any other alphabet soup or non alphabet soup agency. It is in writing and it says that THE US CONSTITUTION AND ALL THAT IS IN PURSUANCE THEREOF IT is supreme and to be binding on the American people.

    So we must decide now if we are going to allow Traitors, Domestic Enemies of the USA, blackmailed, bought off, or plain corrupt representatives, judges, state officials, etc give our nation away or if we are going to remove and replace them and retain our sovereignty, our nation, our US Constitution, and our way of life.

    Because there will be democide, there always is. Then you may get the choice to murder others, even your family members at someones order, or be murdered yourself. You will own NOTHING. You will eat what they allow you to eat, watch and listen to what they allow you to listen to, and be controlled every minute day and night as well be your children IF you are allowed to take a mate and produce.

    What our lives will be, what our children and grand children’s lives will be is up to us, THIS AMERICAN generation.

    What say you? I will not go as a sheep to be shorn and/or butchered.

    If there were never intended to be action to defend the Constitution from those who are domestically attempting to destroy its power and authority, why would each Oath require it of those who take the Oaths?

    Chief Tecumseh: “When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”

    1. Wasn’t it Andrew Jackson that initiated the “March of Tears” even though the supreme court of our land ruled his forcing Indians out was unconstitutional?

      As I recall Andrew Jackson was reported as saying in response to the courts ruling, “They have made their ruling, now let them come and enforce it”.

      Since POTUS commands the armed forces, there was no way that the supreme court could enforce anything.

      That said, I don’t see how anyone can challenge much of anything these days unless they have the time and funding to do so. Last I checked lawyers that spend their career fighting big government over issues of rights are far and few between unless it has something to do with GLBT issues.

      Don’t get me wrong and I am in agreement with you. I just don’t see a system that really makes it possible for us citizens to really put up a serious fight in a court room when you start to look at the practical issues.

      1. If the SC overrules the exec wouldn’t it be the responsibility of congress to unfunded the exec actions or some such action like impeachment?
        I think one of the most glaring problems is that all the crony capitalists in the three branch’s are just too cozy with each other each seeking to further their own financial gain and manipulating each other’s decision making process for their party and the people they serve take second seat.

  2. I think evil existed in America’s system of gov’t since the founding, even though the founding principals are sound, nefarious fudal ties within from English Crown set roots in America from the very beginning. Evidence is the atrocities against Native Americans from progressive forces in gov’t that free Americans didn’t do anything to stop. Officially as an overt political force however the evil wasn’t realized until Teddy Roosevelt, who more and more during his presidency proclaimed publicly ideals of socialism. He than fully ran as a third party socialist and the first officially socialist president who got elected running against Teddy was President Wilson. Both Teddy Roosevelt and Wilson not only were overtly socialist, but also extremely racist!
