    Papers Reveal Evolution of Term "Military-Industrial Complex" by Eisenhower


    The New American Magazine on Facebook


    Papers released by the Eisenhower Presidential Library appear to show that as America’s 34th President prepared his farewell address to the nation, he toyed with several options before coming up with the term “military-industrial complex” to describe his supposed fears of a highly placed network of powerful groups and individuals driving the nation’s foreign policy. by Dave Bohon

    Eisenhower? Many people believe so, just a conspiracy theory, imo.

    From the Article:


    In fact, in his privately published report entitled The Politician, John Birch Society Founder Robert Welch documented how Mr. Eisenhower, both as a military commander and as President, had — either intentionally or unintentionally — dramatically helped advance the cause of communist world domination.

    A recent article by the Salt Lake Tribune reveals that even one of Mr. Eisenhower’s own former cabinet members, Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson, became convinced that the President had been used to advance the communist cause. The Tribune’s Lee Davidson, writes that in a highly confidential letter to FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, Benson attempted “to convince Hoover that The John Birch Society was a clear-thinking anti-communist group. So he wrote how it had convinced him that a friend of theirs had been a tool of the worldwide communist conspiracy.”

    I think he was an NWO tool which in those days was considered "communist"

    i.e people like Soros today would be labeled a communist and their activities subject to scrutiny

    If recent memory serves, it was a relative of our own Antifederalist who coined the term, not Eisenhower...
