Follow the money; control and power over people connect our World Wars, the Great Depressions, the murders of JFK and his brother, Martin Luther King, Jr., and many others, along with seventy-two orchestrated upheavals of other countries, 9/11, the invasions of Iraqi and Lebanon, the war on terror, the war on drugs, the sub-prime mortgage theft, twenty-one trillion dollars missing, unprecedented chronic illness of our children, and much more.
