Oppenheimer had humiliated Lewis Straus, the chairman of the AEC, in a congressional hearing for his lack of knowledge of science. The knives were out ... no evidence was presented in the hearing that the two men precipitated on Oppenheimers security clearance that he was disloyal to the United States. Just that they didnt like the cut of his jib. And they won at the time. (plus, you know, he was Jewish)

Among the documents that remain largely hidden: 44 related to a shadowy CIA agent, George Joannides, and a covert Cuba-related program he ran that came into contact with Lee Harvey Oswald less than four months before Kennedy was shot ... Pentagon plan ..Operaton Northwoods ... false flag attack ... blame Cuba ... make up for aborted Bay of Pigs ... (very fishy) ... But the CIA disclosed none of that information and appointed Joannides as an agency liaison to investigators, which impeded the 1976 House Select Committee on Assassinations investigation ... Bradford discovered 20 years ago that the first recorded conversation between then-President Lyndon Johnson and then-FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover 22 hours after the assassination was mysteriously erased.

The Pandemic and War Not Government Spending Caused Inflation, According to Nobel Prize Winner - A new paper by Joseph Stiglitz and Ira Regmi has huge implications for everything about who holds power in American life ... insufficient supply ... not the result of significant excesses of aggregate demand such as might have arisen from excessive U.S. pandemic spending ... This means large, fast increases in interest rates by the Federal Reserve will not substantially lower inflation unless they induce a major contraction in the economy, which is a cure worse than the disease (hello Biden and Powell) ... If Regmi and Stiglitz are correct, it suggests that we can use the tools of the government to make life better for almost everyone ... So the uncomfortable truth is that the top 1 percent generally prefer a slower-growing economy with higher unemployment to its opposite ... The people running things almost always would rather be firmly in charge of a weaker institution than be part of a stronger institution in which their power can be challenged ... 43 years through 2018 if the income distribution had remained at 1975s level. RANDs finding: The bottom 90 percent would have taken home a cumulative $50 trillion more in pay. (And of course the top 10 percent would have taken home $50 trillion less.) Again, this was a political choice, not an economic necessity ... increasing energy and food costs.
