Book written by General Smedley Butler
Book Review By Jim “Gymbeaux” Brown, November 22 2022
DEFINITION: RACKET. The author used the word “racket” but actually refers to “racketeering.” This is the definition of “racketeering” that fits perfectly to the author’s intent of his writing.
Originally and often still specifically, racketeering may refer to an organized criminal act in which the perpetrators offer a service that will not be put into effect, offer a service to solve a nonexistent problem, or offer a service that solves a problem that would not exist without the racket. However, racketeers may offer an ostensibly effectual service to solve an existing problem. The traditional and historically most common example of such a racket is the "protection racket", in which racketeers offer to protect a business from robbery or vandalism; however, the racketeers will themselves coerce or threaten the business into accepting this service, often with the threat (implicit or otherwise) that failure to acquire the offered services will lead to the racketeers themselves contributing to the existing problem. In many cases, the potential problem may be caused by the same party that offers to solve it, but that fact may be concealed, with the intent to engender continual patronage. The protection racket is thus often a method of extortion, at least in practice.
WHY DID I READ THIS BOOK? I was watching a documentary in which the narrator described a Marine Corps General named Smedley Butler who for whatever reason was selected by the elite bankers of the world to work with them. He apparently realized what their end goal was, to create a one-world-government and destroy America as we know it. According to the narrator, he went along with their scheme long enough to gather evidence and then reported to the President of the United States what their objectives were. Butler may have singlehandedly preserved the America we all have enjoyed.
Fast forward to 2022 and I have to ask the question, isn’t that what we are seeing today? People like Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates and George Soros are attempting to destroy the world’s economy as we have known it and replace it with a one-world-government run by elites who supposedly know best what is good for the rest of us who remain.
The main goal of the World Economic Forum (WEF) and people like Schwab, Gates and Soros is to reduce the world’s population by 13 of every 14 people on the planet. That means killing off millions upon millions of people so that those who remain can maintain a “sustainable environment.” That has been the plan since the early 1900s.
General Butler in this book, which is very short and easy to read in about 30 minute or less, describes the process by which the elite bankers of the world were no different than the Mafia gangs of the 1920s and 30s through to today. More importantly he talks about what the people who fight the planet’s wars experienced and how it adversely affected them for life as well as their families all while the world’s banking and corporate elites sit back and collect MASSIVE PROFITS from the Military Industrial War Machine that President Eisenhower warned us about. Wars are fought to increase profits while at the same time reduce the world’s population. When people like Butler point it out based upon their own experiences, it becomes quite obvious that this is and has been their plan for decades. In this regard, please do your own research and look up Agenda 21 and Agenda 30, both written by none other than the United Nations. It verifies exactly what General Butler has written about.
General Butler pulls no punches in this book; NONE! He tells it exactly how is WAS in his day and continues today. The picture he paints with words is not a pretty picture and certainly does not describe the red, what and blue America that we were led to believe existed. On the contrary, he describes a brutal do whatever it takes to grab as much money and power as you can and leave no stone unturned in doing so by Mafia-like people sitting in the highest corporate and political positions. People’s lives simply do not matter to such people in carrying out their diabolical schemes that they have created.
Who should read this book? EVERYONE but be prepared to be shocked.
Would I read it again? Actually, I think I would and sill.
Would I give it as a gift? Absolutely!
