CIA Financed Afghanistan Tunnels that Trump Bombed

Rising to more than 13,000 feet, 35 miles southwest of the provincial capital of Jalalabad, Tora Bora was a fortress of snow-capped peaks, steep valleys and fortified caves. Its miles of tunnels, bunkers and base camps, dug deeply into the steep rock walls, had been part of a C.I.A.-financed complex built for the mujahedeen. — Lost at Tora Bora, NY Times,SEPT. 11, 2005


Does anyone in America know what it is like to live in a Constitutional Republic?

by Robert John Stevens, April 18, 2017

Yesterday Utah County Commissioner Bill Lee and I attended a final presentation at BYU in Provo, Utah for an on-campus internship that we sponsored this winter semester. Our student team presented solutions for how we can increase agricultural production in residential and county lands.

After the meeting, Bill, Chris White (an owner of four local restaurants) and I met outside at the Tanner Building parking lot. Our discussion turned to Utah County regulations. I said, “If you create a two-column spreadsheet and compare the permissions required to build in Utah County versus a communist country, you’ll see no difference except that in Utah County you may own your own property versus the government owns it in communism. Well, imminent domain laws may still take your property away.”

Bill replied, “Does anyone in America know what it is like to live in a Constitutional Republic?” He said he’s asked that question to Senator Mike Lee.

The answer is no. Since the Federal Reserve coup in 1913, no American knows what it is like to live in a Constitutional Republic.

Men, organized into small gangs, will loot and steal to feed their families.
