WARNING: Corporate-Fascist Military Coup Brewing in the United States?
Beware of pretenders supplied by the establishment to “save us” from collapsing system.

The US intelligence community, in conjunction with Wall Street corporate-financier interests, have spent an inordinate amount of time positioning themselves for a possible military coup and martial law take over of the United States. This is being done under the guise of the fraudulent “War on Terror” as preparation for a very real and inevitable economic collapse. In particular, one personality above all others is being groomed by intelligence operatives and policy wonks, while built-up by the corporate media  in the eyes of the public to intercede in America’s accelerating political, economic, and even global tactical decline. This man is General David Petraeus who served as former head of US Central Command which included combat operations in Iraq and former commander of US forces in Afghanistan before being sworn in as the current director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in September 6, 2011.
Posing as a venerable American hero, “leading” American troops through two wars in service to his nation, Petraeus’ ties are in fact to Wall Street and London corporate financier oligarchs. His membership  in the corporate-financier Council on Foreign Relations  is perhaps the most significant conflict of interest in America’s political landscape. He has been both commander of America’s troops and now director of the CIA, all while privately associating with the unelected policy makers of the CFR; an organization that represents the collective interests of the largest banks, private institutions, and corporations on earth. Whether Petraeus is guilty or not of improprieties amidst this enormous conflict of interest is irrelevant. The fact that he hasn’t shown the proper judgment to rectify such a conflict by either resigning, or ending his CFR associations, should be alarming to all Americans.
To add further fears regarding the ambitions and agenda of Petraeus, one must examine those that are gravitating around him and indeed prodding him along.
In 2010, Petraeus gave a speech before the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research (AEI) , another private institution funded by corporations, working on behalf of corporations, essentially producing their own self-serving policy and using their vast connections and resources to have it rubber stamped by Congress and executed by the US Government at the American people’s expense. In his speech, Petraeus would praise Neo-Conservative policy wonk Frederick Kagan who he credited for developing the “surge” strategy in Iraq.
In fact, almost all military strategy comes not from a large mahogany desk with maps strewn across it with a calculating general hovering above, but rather from institutions like AEI and other corporate-funded think-tanks including the Brookings Institution or the RAND Corporation. Frederick Kagan, along with other “resident scholars” at AEI, have also developed the current strategies being employed in Afghanistan and soon in Pakistan . One might say that Petraeus, and many other lackluster officers in the United States military are nothing more than empty vessels with administrative and operational capabilities merely carrying corporate-funded, crafted, and serving policies onto the battlefield, while equally empty vessels for politicians sell the policies and their tremendous costs back at home to the American people.
