The Life and Career of Henry Kissinger: Biography, Youth, Diplomacy, Nixon, Cold War (1992)
Kissinger was born Heinz Alfred Kissinger in Fürth, Bavaria, Germany, in 1923 during the Weimar Republic, to a family of German Jews. His father, Louis Kissinger (1887--1982), was a schoolteacher. His mother, Paula (Stern) Kissinger (1901--1998), was a homemaker. Kissinger has a younger brother, Walter Kissinger. The surname Kissinger was adopted in 1817 by his great-great-grandfather Meyer Löb, after the Bavarian spa town of Bad Kissingen. As a youth, Heinz enjoyed playing soccer, and even played for the youth side of his favorite club and one of the nation's best clubs at the time, SpVgg Fürth. In 1938, fleeing Nazi persecution, his family moved to London, England, before arriving in New York on September 5.
Kissinger spent his high school years in the Washington Heights section of upper Manhattan as part of the German Jewish immigrant community there. Although Kissinger assimilated quickly into American culture, he never lost his pronounced Frankish accent, due to childhood shyness that made him hesitant to speak. Following his first year at George Washington High School, he began attending school at night and worked in a shaving brush factory during the day.
Following high school, Kissinger enrolled in the City College of New York, studying accounting. He excelled academically as a part-time student, continuing to work while enrolled. His studies were interrupted in early 1943, when he was drafted into the U.S. Army.
Kissinger underwent basic training at Camp Croft in Spartanburg, South Carolina. On June 19, 1943, while stationed in South Carolina, at the age of 20 years, he became a naturalized U.S. citizen. The army sent him to study engineering at Lafayette College, Pennsylvania, but the program was cancelled, and Kissinger was reassigned to the 84th Infantry Division. There, he made the acquaintance of Fritz Kraemer, a fellow immigrant from Germany who noted Kissinger's fluency in German and his intellect, and arranged for him to be assigned to the military intelligence section of the division. Kissinger saw combat with the division, and volunteered for hazardous intelligence duties during the Battle of the Bulge.
During the American advance into Germany, Kissinger, only a private, was put in charge of the administration of the city of Krefeld, owing to a lack of German speakers on the division's intelligence staff. Within eight days he had established a civilian administration. Kissinger was then reassigned to the Counter Intelligence Corps, with the rank of sergeant. He was given charge of a team in Hanover assigned to tracking down Gestapo officers and other saboteurs, for which he was awarded the Bronze Star. In June 1945, Kissinger was made commandant of the Bensheim metro CIC detachment, Bergstrasse district of Hesse, with responsibility for de-Nazification of the district. Although he possessed absolute authority and powers of arrest, Kissinger took care to avoid abuses against the local population by his command.
In 1946, Kissinger was reassigned to teach at the European Command Intelligence School at Camp King, continuing to serve in this role as a civilian employee following his separation from the army.
Henry Kissinger received his AB degree summa cum laude in political science at Harvard College in 1950, where he lived in Adams House and studied under William Yandell Elliott. He received his MA and PhD degrees at Harvard University in 1952 and 1954, respectively. In 1952, while still at Harvard, he served as a consultant to the director of the Psychological Strategy Board. His doctoral dissertation was titled "Peace, Legitimacy, and the Equilibrium (A Study of the Statesmanship of Castlereagh and Metternich)".
Still think we're a Constitutional Republic with a sound democratic process here in 'Murica? Think again. The head of the Federal Reserve just basically admitted we are an oligarchy — where wealth is concentrated into the hands of the few rich elitists in the billionaire class and all the real power in this country has concentrated with it. Average, everyday citizens have a negligible amount of say in what goes on in this country and the policies that effect their daily lives. We are an oligarchy. If you really need a study to tell you that, see this one fresh out via Princeton and Northwestern University which found, "When the preferences of economic elites and the stands of organized interest groups are controlled for, the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy."

On this Thursday, May 8 edition of the Alex Jones Show, Alex covers unprecedented news coming out of Washington, D.C. The U.S. House of Representatives voted to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify about the agency's harassment of Tea Party groups. Maryland's Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings claimed that holding Lerner in contempt amounts to "McCarthyism," despite the fact that 10% of donors to Tea Party groups were audited, a figure much higher than the audit rate for average Americans. Alex also covers new developments in political suppression and more. Constitutional lawyer and author Bruce Fein joins the show to discuss the FEC chairman's warning that government officials want to regulate the alternative media and ex-CIA officer and journalist Ray McGovern also joins the broadcast to break down the current standoff between world powers that is expanding beyond Ukraine.
Stefan Molyneux speaks with Dr. Paul Craig Roberts the death of the constitutional American republic, what can be learned from the situation in Crimea and Ukraine, the United States showdown with Russia, the German response to Edward Snowden, the rise of the Wolfowitz doctrine and the failure of United States intelligence before 9/11.
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy under Ronald Regan and is a former associate editor of the Wall Street Journal. Dr. Roberts is the author of "How America Was Lost: From 9/11 to the Police/Warfare State"
What is riciculous is that the banks (and financial corporations) aren't subject to the same competition regulation as non-financial corporations (tech f.ex.) If a bank is so big it will crash the entire financial system of a country if it fails, it can not be allowed to take risks that could crash it. If it does it's dangerous recklessness and incompetence, or undermining national security.

Vladimir Putin Traitor to the One World Government & The NWO. Pictured is a young Vladimir Putin, who was part of the KGB security team. http://www.holographic-disclosure.com/ We see him introducing his son to the U.S President Ronald Reagan. Also pictured is Michael Gorbachev. Vladimir Putin came to power with the sponsorship of Boris Yeltsin: Yelstsin came to power with the sponsorship of the Russian Jewish Oligarchs. For Millennium, the Cabal has been using the Heligian Dialectic. The Hegelian Dialectic was the policies of George Hagel a German Philosopher. All historical events emerge from a conflict between opposing forces. The whole purpose of the dialectic is to control the masses like herding sheep. Whenever people see a group or belief system as "evil" they instinctively move to the political opposite of what they identified as threatening. Putin's role was to follow Yeltzins footsteps as the Heligian Dialect was already played out in bringing the two nations, the U.S and Russia together. But something terrible has gone wrong for the Cabal and their world take over.
“once a standing army is established, in any country, the people lose their liberty.”
“Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.”
“If you are an ordinary person, then you can prepare yourself for war by moving to the countryside and building a farm, but you must take guns with you, as the hordes of starving will be roaming. Also, even though the elite will have their safe havens and specialist shelters, they must be just as careful during the war as the ordinary civilians, because their shelters can still be compromised.”
"We don't let them have ideas. Why would we let them have guns?" Joseph Stalin

“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is, perhaps, the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banks can in fact inflate, mint and un-mint the modern ledger-entry currency.” Major L L B Angus
The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or so dependent on its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system will bear its burdens without complaint and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.

"Debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages must be foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through a process of law, the common people lose their homes they will become more docile and more easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government, applied by a central power of wealth under control of leading financiers.
This truth is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of Capital to govern the world.
By dividing the voters through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished."

Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?
