Cointelpro: If Too Young To Know...Watch!

There are times we will reach back into our past for lessons we hope to avoid in the future.  We at The Progressive Influence are not die-hard 
conspiracist", nor are we 'truthers' regarding national catastrophes like 9/11. Yet, we are not naive nor foolish enough to believe our government does 'everything right'  without exception and never steps into real of the "I cannot believe they did that".   

Richard Nixon's C.R.E.E.P. Team (Committee to Re-elect The President) via The Watergate break-in and historic cover-up (Linked Video, "I am not a Crook")  and Ronald Reagan's (selling to Iran) "Arms for Hostages" and to fund the Contras  (Link Video, are clear examples of 'shame on us.  And, while Bill Clinton committed egregious personal and social malfeasance while serving the White House, his acts were not state sanctioned acts that worked against the good of the people of our nation.  George W. Bush......? I am going to skip that experience in US History for purpose of keeping this screed as short as possible.   Additionally, Bush was of recent US history and the informed know of his exploits, malfeasance  nation killing stumbling bumbled and misapplied governance.

The following is a 40 plus minute rendering of a program sanctioned that highest levels in the US government  and perpetrated by the remnants of a J. Edgar Hoover FBI. If there ever was a government agency that could have served as an internal police force that would carry-out internal subterfuge like the former Soviet Union's KGB calling it was Hoover's FBI.

We introduce COINTELPRO to those who can view it (time length)  and for those who have interest is seeing and hearing just it looks when government runs a muck. 

Our intent is not anti-government in any way. We support the US government absolutely, yet we remain diligent in know observation trumps rhetoric in every case.
