Petraeus, who resigned from leading the CIA “killing machine” in disgrace after his extramarital affair was exposed, also touted advances in genetics and especially robotics. He suggested robots would soon be displacing huge numbers of manufacturing workers across North America and even the world. Combined with the wave of illegal immigrants currently pouring across the southern U.S. border as part of what officials and critics have said is an orchestrated operation endorsed by the Obama administration, the competition for jobs, then, will become even more intense.

Flournoy is deeply associated with the Center for a New American Security, the think tank in the orbit of Gen. David Petraeus, who continues to function as the focal point for a political comeback — possibly in authoritarian form — by the hated neocon faction. Push-back against Flournoy quickly emerged in a number of quarters, including this web site. Flournoy was forced to drop out of contention on Tuesday, Nov. 25, just after this broadcast was pre-recorded. It is not known how Flournoy was stopped, but her professed desire to spend more time with her family can safely be considered spurious. There is now grave and immediate danger that the Allen-Petraeus clique will initiate bombing and decapitation attacks against the Assad government. As for the Pentagon post, the controlled media are touting Hagel’s deputy Robert O. Work (also of CNAS), Defense Department veteran Ashton Carter, Homeland Security boss Jeh Johnson, and the Saudi-linked former Mississippi Governor and Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus. Webster G.
