Trump to take on the CIA?

Back when I was publishing Crone Chronicles: A Journal of Conscious Aging, I was once up on a stage in Wyoming and found myself talking about Crones In Action “as the real Central Intelligence.” The audience laughed.

I did not laugh. Imagine what would have happened had the new U.S. government, besides dividing into three equal branches as per the wisdom of the Iroquois Confederacy, also absorbed its other governing principle, that of a council of female elders.

“In the councils of the Iroquois every adult male or female had a voice upon all questions brought before it,” Stanton reported in The National Bulletin in 1891. “The American aborigines were essentially democratic in their government….The women were the great power among the clan.” Stanton went on to describe how clan mothers had the responsibility for nominating a chief, and could remove that chief if he did not make good decisions. “They did not hesitate, when occasion required,” Stanton recalled, “‘to knock off the horns,’ as it was technically called, from the head of a chief and send him back to the ranks of the warriors.”

Douglas Valentine has been researching the CIA for decades. Here is his new book.

Here’s one review of that book:

The History of the CIA

Here’s a discussion of CIA crimes:

I’m glad to see that Trump plans to take on the CIA.

Donald Trump Plans Revamp of Top US Spy Agency

I presume Trump is aware of a remark attributed to John Kennedy, that he “wanted to splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the winds.” True? Two years later, he was assasinated.
