AN ACTUAL COUP IN AMERICA: DEMOCRATS IN 1944

BURT COHEN · AUGUST 3, 2017

Quote:In the long held American tradition of opposition to colonialism and a government serving the common good, FDR's vice president Henry A Wallace was an outstanding visionary. Then a corrupt political machine performed a bloodless coup at the 1944 Democratic convention. Just as his name was to be placed in nomination (he easily had the votes to win) the gavel was brought down and the convention instantly adjourned despite a huge outcry from the floor. Had Wallace remained as VP, he would have become president instead of Truman. American University History Professor Peter Kuznick explains the incredibly significance of this act to the next seventy years of American history. There would have been no atomic bombs dropped and no Vietnam War, had Wallace's name simply been placed in nomination. The difference was about nine seconds. Listen in and learn.

Yes, a VERY important part of the USA's hidden political history! So much would have been different [and better]. Sadly, however, I fear had he been nominated and elected he may well have been assassinated - but perhaps in the few years before that happened some good could have been done. It is all part of a pattern that anyone with eyes and an independent mind can see - independent political thinkers who really care about the average person and/or doing the most good / the least harm are systematically not nominated, made unelectable or assassinated one way or another. More so those who have socialist leanings. The USA does what is RIGHT and this has remained so from 1776 to today. Progressive thinking/action is really not allowed by those few who feel they 'own' and 'run' the USA. Wallace was really excellent and is today almost unknown. There are several very good books on him and his political views.

Hiroshima: A "Military Base" according to President Harry Truman

By Prof Michel Chossudovsky
Global Research, August 05, 2017

http://www.globalresearch.ca/hiroshima-a...an/5602782

Did you know that Hiroshima was a "military base", and that when the first atomic bomb was dropped on two of Japan's heavily populated area in August 1945, the objective was, according to president Truman was to save the lives of innocent civilians.

"The World will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima a military base. That was because we wished in this first attack to avoid, insofar as possible, the killing of civilians.."(President Harry S. Truman in a radio speech to the Nation, August 9, 1945).

[Note: the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945; the Second on Nagasaki, on August 9, on the same day as Truman's radio speech to the Nation]

(Listen to Audio of Truman's speech, Hiroshima audio video)

Unpunished crimes against humanity, "collateral damage".

In the words of President Harry Truman:

"We have discovered the most terrible bomb in the history of the world. It may be the fire destruction prophesied in the Euphrates Valley Era, after Noah and his fabulous Ark…. This weapon is to be used against Japan … [We] will use it so that military objectives and soldiers and sailors are the target and not women and children. Even if the Japs are savages, ruthless, merciless and fanatic, we as the leader of the world for the common welfare cannot drop that terrible bomb on the old capital or the new. … The target will be a purely military one… It seems to be the most terrible thing ever discovered, but it can be made the most useful."

Here is the full excerpt of Truman's radio address pertaining to the atomic bomb (emphasis added):

Quote:The world will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, a military base. That was because we wished in this first attack to avoid, insofar as possible, the killing of civilians. But that attack is only a warning of things to come. If Japan does not surrender, bombs will have to be dropped on her war industries and, unfortunately, thousands of civilian lives will be lost. I urge Japanese civilians to leave industrial cities immediately, and save themselves from destruction.

I realize the tragic significance of the atomic bomb.

Its production and its use were not lightly undertaken by this Government. But we knew that our enemies were on the search for it. We know now how close they were to finding it. And we knew the disaster which would come to this Nation, and to all peace-loving nations, to all civilization, if they had found it first.

That is why we felt compelled to undertake the long and uncertain and costly labor of discovery and production.

We won the race of discovery against the Germans.

Having found the bomb we have used it. We have used it against those who attacked us without warning at Pearl Harbor, against those who have starved and beaten and executed American prisoners of war, against those who have abandoned all pretense of obeying international laws of warfare. We have used it in order to shorten the agony of war, in order to save the lives of thousands and thousands of young Americans.

We shall continue to use it until we completely destroy Japan's power to make war. Only a Japanese surrender will stop us.

The atomic bomb is too dangerous to be loose in a lawless world. That is why Great Britain, Canada, and the United States, who have the secret of its production, do not intend to reveal that secret until means have been found to control the bomb so as to protect ourselves and the rest of the world from the danger of total destruction.

As far back as last May, Secretary of War Stimson, at my suggestion, appointed a committee upon which Secretary of State Byrnes served as my personal representative, to prepare plans for the future control of this bomb. I shall ask the Congress to cooperate to the end that its production and use be controlled, and that its power be made an overwhelming influence towards world peace.

We must constitute ourselves trustees of this new forceto prevent its misuse, and to turn it into the channels of service to mankind.

It is an awful responsibility which has come to us.

We thank God that it has come to us, instead of to our enemies; and we pray that He may guide us to use it in His ways and for His purposes.
