There is an unelected legislative body that is controlling politics in the United States of America, and has been over the past three decades. It functions in stealth, provides support much like a labor union, and has gained greater power than the Executive and Legislative branches of our elected government with the assistance of the Judicial branch.

In the past decade the United States has evolved into an aggressor nation, particularly in the Middle East, and one must ask why has the battlefield replaced the conference room in working out disagreements?
