Reader comments about this quote:
Its more of an "agenda" than it is a conspiracy. And its been accelerating very rapidly sinse 911. We're losing our rights and liberties wholesale...but no seems to notice...no one seems to care. No one wants to talk about the elephant in the room.

    There is nothing so monsterous that I can't believe it exists.Nothing surprises me anymore.Nothing at all.

    There are agendas and conspiracies a plenty. A conspiracy explains 9/11. An agenda explains Billary the communist. Billary says she's going to stop the good paying jobs from leaving the U.S. by making sure they will pay more taxes, pay more for useless bureaucratic regulation, pay more for insurance, pay for her restrictions on becoming productive, etc. All payments will make them stay, and if they leave, she will punish them. Loosely interpreting here, she said she has more agendas than the country has money.

    It's the takeover of America by bankers and lawyers in order to corrupt the very meaning of 'money' and 'law.'

    If the companies leave then she can no longer punish them Mike. Just a bunch of socialist crap. Hillary and her husband got plenty of cash from the corporations during their campaigns. They knew what was good for them. If they didn't donate the Clintons beat them up.

    Our other handicap is the brown bag over our heads. Go Barak and Hilary - nothing could be as worse as our current government who gave tax cuts to the rich and allowed the oil crisis and the invasion of Iraq make his buddies millions, sorry, billions - this President will go down in infamy.

    Sounds like he is talking about taxpayers and their accountants conspiring against Uncle Sam.

    Our "caring" politicians HRC, Obama, and McCain have all taken large sums of money from health care lobbyists in this campaign (in that order, by the way). How interesting that Clinton is talking about garnishing the wages of workers who refuse to buy health insurance. Who do you think loves this idea? It looks like she is ready to pay back those contributions. The other two probably have similar plans but are too smart to actually say so. That's the current conspiracy.

    WAFFLER! What the heck?! Taxpayers and CPA's conspiring against the govt? Are you serious? I hope you are being facetious.

    I'm struck by Hoover's quote "The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists." Supposedly he said this about Communism, but in fact it much more so applies to the COINTEL crimes STILL being committed by the Federal government today. I work for NSA (National Security Agency) and because I dared to ask the NSA IG why my boss purposely miscredited a big project of mine (that saved MANY lives in 2002 - against my managers' wishes!) was purposely miscreditied to a branch slut - I was set up for a gang stalking attack to discredit my EEO complaint. First my reinvestigation interviews were used as a vicious slander campaign at work and in my neighborhood, then throughout my community in Columbia, Maryland, in order to arouse mob-hatred and 24/7 mob harassment and stalking by citizen idiots; Apparently a town largely comprised of brainless sheep and sadists... not to mention throroughly CORRUPT HOWARD COUNTY POLICE who won't investigate my employer harassment complaint. Then when I complained to my NSA management, I was immediately attacked as "delusional" (just like they attacked Russell Tice - who was TRYING to turn in a spy at NSA who was passing secrest to the Chinese.) I am seeing a psychologist in self-defense who says, "I think if you were delusional I JUST MIGHT have NOTICED!" He sees it for the set-up and vicous attack that it is - heinous employer harassment to get around the whistle blower protection laws and to protect NSA managers' apparent "right" to use promotions to create their own little harums at work. DIRNSA (Director NSA) AF General General Keith Alexander and his deputy, Chris Inglis need to go to PRISON, as does henchman AF General Neil "Tom" Jones. If the Feds continue to do this - America is dead and gone.

    Just another intervention from the Dark Empire. Many great American Statesmen have warned of this; just read some of Jefferson's quotes, Eisenhower's speech about the military/industrial complex and Kennedy's speech about secret societies. America is being ran by people they do not elect.

    I'm bored right now and have nothing better to do, but let me just say this. People concern themselves too much with minutae and miss the much deeper profundity of this statement. It's of tremendous significance because it was said by a 33rd degree Freemason and they have secret knowledge of the true ancient history of mankind that we are not allowed to know. To control a people absolutely, you withhold knowledge of their true identity of who they are and what they are capable of. The Freemasons go back literally thousands of years to the construction of Solomon's temple. They have extensive knowledge on the true builders of ancient egyptian structures and antediluvian races. People concern themselves with JFK, 911, and black ops while those things though sinister they maybe, truly don't even scratch the surface of what he means. J. Edgar Hoover is really talking about the systematic organized control over the human race that has been going on not for a few decades, but millenia. One of the most prominent symbols used by Freemasons is the BEEHIVE. It represents social control, industry, and a hierachy. We are viewed as drone worker bees, slaves if you will. J. Edgar knew if man found out how many thousands of years he had been enslaved by the ruling elite and to what purpose this was done, he would be so overwhelmed by it that he would never believe it. And he was absolutely right.

    I'll answer this quote with another quote, "Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction." People think that you're crazy when you try to explain to them in which the way the world actually works and how corrupt and evil the people who run it actually are. These things don't just happen in movies. The facts are all there for anybody to see if you choose to see them. Wake up sheeple you're all about to be led to slaughter.
