Forty-one years ago, during a small and largely ignored government scandal, a great mystery occurred. A group of determined congressional investigators, who had learned the president of the United States was running a voice-activated taping system in the Oval Office, pressed to get their hands on the tapes. The courts ruled in their favor. The White House had to hand over a number of tapes. But it turned out one of them, which was understood by the timeline to potentially be the key one, the one that might reveal exactly how the scandal began, turned out to have an 18½-minute gap.
It came to pass that the longtime personal secretary of the president, Rose Mary Woods, who had been transcribing the tapes in preparation for turning them over, said she had made a terrible mistake. She had been listening to the tape when the phone rang; she turned, picked it up, meant to hit the stop button on the tape recorder but hit the record button instead, spoke on the phone for five minutes and when the conversation was over found that five minutes of the tape had been recorded over. Later, and doubly mysterious, it turned out that a total of 18½ minutes of the tape had been erased. No one knows to this day how that happened. The presidents chief of staff, Alexander Haig, once mused it might have been the work of some sinister force.

After paying rent to the Federal, State and Local givernments..
They turned their faces from the fact they were now serfs...
AND the various givernments have been working ceaslessly to prove it (to them) ever since..
Now as virtual Serfs they allowed income taxes, leveys, licensing, fines and all sorts of parasitical activities..
Ignoring that democracy was in fact Mob Rule.. You know by mobsters..
Then; the Federal Reserve was created as the Pide Piper to all the Rats..
Nothing has been done about this to this day...
And the Rats worship the word FREEDOM as if it was SO....
The delusion continues..
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

Why couldn’t the Tea Party set out to do the same?
