Sibel Edmonds: The Hijacking Of A Nation
THE HIGHJACKING OF A NATION

Part 1: The Foreign Agent Factor

By Sibel Edmonds

In his farewell address in 1796, George Washington warned that America must be constantly awake against the insidious wiles of foreign influencesince history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government.

Today, foreign influence, that most baneful foe of our republican government, has its tentacles entrenched in almost all major decision making and policy producing bodies of the U.S. government machine. It does so not secretly, since its self-serving activities are advocated and legitimized by highly positioned parties that reap the benefits that come in the form of financial gain and positions of power.

Foreign governments and foreign-owned private interests have long sought to influence U.S. public policy. Several have accomplished this goal; those who are able and willing to pay what it takes. Those who buy themselves a few strategic middlemen, commonly known as pimps, while in DC circles referred to as foreign registered agents and lobbyists, who facilitate and bring about desired transactions. These successful foreign entities have mastered the art of covering all the bases when it comes to buying influence in Washington DC. They have the required recipe down pat: get yourself a few Dime a Dozen Generals, bid high in the former statesmen lobby auction, and put in your pocket one or two ex-congressmen turned lobbyists who know the ropes when it comes to pocketing a few dozen who still serve.

The most important facet of this influence to consider is what happens when the active and powerful foreign entities objectives are in direct conflict with our nations objectives and its interests and security; and when this is the case, who pays the ultimate price and how. There is no need for assumptions of hypothetical situations to answer these questions, since throughout recent history we have repeatedly faced the dire consequences of the highjacking of our foreign and domestic policies by these so-called foreign agents of foreign influence.
