I found this letter a few years ago on the net then lost the link. It was sent to me last week by Wes Penre who runs the awesome site Illuminati News which I highly recommend for its accuracy and incredible variety of information. When I first read this letter I was completely overwhelmed by it. This was 9 years ago. I posted it in 2007 and no one thought it was anything other than silliness. However, when I reread it with fresh eyes the other day, I was awed at how far the plans outlined have come true. Even if this is a hoax, there is material in here to consider. That attitude of entitlement is very familiar to us in these days of recessions, clawbacks, wars, police state, mind control, HAARP manipulations, wars, etc etc etc. Give this the respect it deserves, read it and consider our modern planet.
Please print this out for the majority who don\’t have computers, and give it to as many people as you can. Everyone on Earth should read this and it will never get into the papers, for the reasons stated in it, that is why everyone should make as many copies as they can and pass them on. How else will people be able to read it? If everyone does their bit we can inform the world and set the wheels of redemption in motion.
JP Morgan being only a little harsh with his crop and weapons. This agent of the Rothschilds took America to the cleaners and back a few times.
T his is truly a wonderful thing. In our media we present before you exactly what it is we want you to do. Then, as if in a flash, our little servants obey. We can send American or European troops to wherever we like, whenever we like, and for whatever purpose we like, and you dutifully go about our business. How much more evidence do you need? We can make you desire to leave your homes and family and go to war merely at our command. We only need to present some nonsense to you from the president\’s desk or on the evening news and we can get you all fired up to do whatever we like. You can do nothing but what we put before you.
When any of you seek to resist us, we have ways of making you look ridiculous as we have done with your militia movement. We have delighted to use this movement to show the world how impotent any resistance is. They look so silly marching around with their guns as if they were some match for our military.
Look at what we did near Waco. Did the Davidian\’s little store of weapons help them? We have generously taxed you and used that money to make such sophisticated weapons you can in no way compete. Your own money has served to forge the chains we bind you with, since we are in control of all money. Some of you think you may escape by buying some land in the country and growing a garden. Let me remind you that you still pay us ground rent. Oh, you may call it property taxes, but it still goes to us. You see, you need money no matter what you do. If you fail to pay your ground rent to us, we will take your land and sell it to someone who will pay us. Do you think we cannot do this? And with your ground rent we pay for the indoctrination of your children in the public schools we have set up. We want them to grow up well trained into the system of our thinking. Your children will learn what we want them to learn, when we want them to learn it, and you pay for it through your ground rent. Those funds are also used for other projects we have in mind and our contractors are paid handsomely for their work. You may doubt that we own your children, or have such control, but you will find that we do. We can declare that you abuse your children when you spank them and have them confiscated. If they do not show up for school indoctrination, we can accuse you of neglect, thereby, giving them to us. Your children are not yours. They are ours. You must inoculate them, you must bring them to our hospitals if we decree or we will take them from you. You know this and we know this. Through our electronic commerce we are able to see where you are, what you are buying and how much you have to buy things with. Where do you suppose we come up with our monthly financial statistics? Through the Internet and other sources we can even know how you think and what you say.
It is not especially important to us what you believe as long as you do what we say. Your beliefs are nonsense anyway. But if you think you have a following, and we perceive that you might be somewhat dangerous to our agenda, we have ways to deal with you. Here is where the NWO\’s weakness lies their dis-belief in God and His Infinite Power is the root of their arrogance and complacency.
“Don\’t under-estimate The Force. The ability to destroy a planet (weapons of “mass destruction”, etc.) is insignificant next to The Power of The Force (God\’s Powers)”
We have a Pandora\’s box of mischief with which to snare you. We can have you in court so long you will never get out. We can easily drain away all your assets over one pretext or another. We have an inexhaustible fund with which to draw from to pay our lawyers. These lawyers are paid by you in the form of taxes. You do not have this vast supply of wealth. We know how to divide and conquer. Have we not brought down rulers of countries through our devices? Do you think your tiny self will be any match for us? And, let us consider your religions and the “moral majority.” The “moral majority” is neither moral nor is it in the majority. We have delighted to use this wet noodle of a movement to make ridiculous the Christian faith.
The silly men who run that organization always end up with egg on their faces. We have always put them in defense of themselves as we have so successfully done with the NRA. We can make it seem by our media propaganda that the National Rifle Association is actually the New Radical Attackers. Have we not turned the American conservative movement on its ear? If it serves our purposes we can use the conservatives to turn the liberals on their ear. It makes no difference to us but it serves to make you believe there are two sides struggling for their particular position. This helps to make things seem fair and free since everyone has a voice. Actually, there is only one side now with all kinds of masks on, but you are unable to penetrate our purposes. You see, we can do whatever we like and you can do nothing about it. Does it not seem reasonable that you simply obey and serve us? Otherwise, you get eaten up in the resistance you suppose will liberate you.
You cannot be liberated. Imagine how you can. We supply your fuel for your cars. We can turn it off whenever we like claiming that there is some sort of fuel shortage. What if your car breaks down? You cannot get parts for it without us. We supply all the money you use. At any whim of our desire we can stop the money supply or cause a complete crash all together. We can then order the president to declare all money worthless and that we will have to have new money. All of your stashes of cash will go up in smoke in a moment\’s time.
Don\’t you need food? If necessary, we can cause a trucker\’s strike which would stop deliveries of food to your local store. We can starve you whenever we like. You only have food because we have provided it to you from our table.

During the “great depression” we controlled the food. We heaped mountains of food behind fences and let it rot. The hungry were then made to work in our labour camps even though there was enough and more to feed them. Do you really think you can beat us?

You say you will hoard gold coins so you will still have money in the time of the crash. We can simply pass a law which outlaws the possession of gold as we have done in the past. If we find gold in your possession, we would simply confiscate it and put you in prison for breaking the law.
While in prison you would be required to work in one of our prison industries. We have so formed a picture of the labour camps in our prisons these days that no one seems to object to them. We tell people that murderers should pay for their own keep.
No one seems to consider that we have the power to put tomato growers there also. We can pass laws that prohibit gardens and then make up some scientific reason why you may only buy food from our sources. If someone sees you growing tomatoes, they will report you to us and then we will have you in our fields working for us.
Oh, silly nationalists, there is no escape for you, for since long before you were born, we were planning your capture. Your teachers and ministers have been forming your thoughts for us for generations now. You have no idea how to pull out of our influence short of suicide.

Go ahead and commit suicide, it will only help us to deal with the excessive population. You cannot hurt us, find us, or even imagine what we are up to.

I am throwing you these few crumbs only so that you may, if you have a little good sense, obey and follow our orders.
We run Hollywood. The movies such as Terminator and Armageddon, along with a great host of others, were simply created to get you thinking according to our directions. You have been made to delight in violence so that when we send you off to kill some bad man we have put before you, you move without a whimper.
We have placed violent arcade games in your malls to prepare your young minds in the art of battle. We have made you to view our armies and police as the good forces and you submit to things that were unthinkable just a few decades ago. Our artful programs, are all designed to help you submit and even help the New World Order. Star Trek, and other such creations, have taught you to simply obey orders from the new international rulers. Oh, silly people, you thought you were being entertained, while you were actually being educated. Dare I use the words, “brainwashed” or “mind control?” By the way, have you seen the new Star Wars? What a masterpiece of mental manipulation. Humans confer with nondescript beasts of all shapes and sizes and they confer in English. I wonder where those space beasts learned English. Oh, the simpleness of the mind of the citizen.
He never considers he is being taken into fairyland. We have placed advertisements for Star Wars almost everywhere you go. You will find them in Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Taco Bell and a host of our institutions of commerce. There is something we want you to learn from this movie. Or, perhaps it could be said, there is something we do not want you to learn, from Episodes 4-6. Either way, we will have what we want in the whole affair. Of course, to keep you off guard we have instructed our elected officials to appear to be correcting the evil of our violence. President Clinton is now speaking against violence in Hollywood movies. This will not solve the problem, but will only make the people believe the problem is being worked on.
Sex and violence are the very best powers to use to help us gain our advantage. How the people loathe to give up their sex and violence, so we place all they want before them. In this way, we keep them so occupied they do not have the integrity or brain power to deal with the really important matters which are left entirely in our hands.
President Clinton has been very helpful to us. We knew of what character he was before we placed him as president. Exposing him was very helpful in adjusting the moral habits of the youth downward. This is to our advantage. Even more agreeable to us were the vain efforts of those who thought they could remove him against our will. He is useful to us and he will not be removed by anyone until we are ready to have him removed. Excuse me if I seem to be mocking your system of beliefs, but they are rather outdated.
Have you no eyes to see your vain liberties and your righteous pontifications are nothing before us? You can only do what we say you can do. We remove presidents when we are ready and the leader we set up will be there until it serves us to have another. At that time we place our proposed leader before you and you vote for what we want. In that way we give you the vain voting exercise in the belief you had something to do with placing your president in office. We use the nations for what we want to use them for. Everyone knows that they must yield to us or die. Fortunately, we have had a few resisters such as Saddam and Milosevic that have been helpful in showing the world leaders what we will do to them if they do not submit.
There is only glory in following our purposes and doing what we say. If one does not, there will be such a sad and tragic result. I would really have you spared of such an end. But, then, again, if you are not spared, it is of no consequence to us. We will use you to alleviate some of the overpopulation problem. Some of you have thought you could stop us by placing a bomb in one of our abortion clinics or in a government building. Silly souls! How can that hurt us? All that does is give us an example to use so that we might place more controls and heavy burdens on the population. We love it when you rebel and blow something up. You are our reason for making more laws against all those things which might contribute to your freedom from us. If someone did not blow something up on occasion, we would have no justification in placing more hedges about you. Can\’t you see how impossible it is for you to resist us? The more you wriggle, the more we squeeze.
Our kingdom is the kingdom of money. Excuse me, but I must confess that we are the rulers of the kingdom of non-money. You must see the humour in that statement. We have given you a piece of paper or some numbers on a computer screen that we have termed money.
It is backed up by nothing and proven by nothing but what we say it is. We create it from nothing, we print it, we loan it, we give it its value, we take its value away. All things that have to do with money are in our hands.
Think of it, what is it that you can do against us without money? If you try to resist, we can cancel your credit or freeze your accounts. Your cash is easily confiscated. We have made so many rules in the realm of living that you cannot live without money. Camp on government land and you must move in two weeks. You cannot grow much of a garden in two weeks. Many of our wilderness trails are entered by permit only. We have passed laws that do not allow you to live in trailers over a certain period without moving to another location.
Have you not thought it ridiculous that we will allow a man to live in a box full time but we will not allow a man to live in an RV full time unless he is in a taxpaying campground? Our recent war in Serbia has many purposes to it but we do not speak of these things openly. We let the talk show hosts blather all sorts of nonsense but none of it touches the core. First of all, there is a wealth of natural resources in Kosovo that we must have complete control of. Kosovo has large supplies of uranium in its soil and uranium is very helpful to our regime. Also, it suits us to keep all such minerals out of the hands of potential enemies. Milosevic has not been helpful in giving those resources into our hands so we simply make things difficult for him until he does. Even now victory over Yugoslavia is imminent. We are reducing that proud nation to the level of humility we require from all people. After the war, if Mr. Milosevic does not sufficiently humble himself, we will take him to the world court charged with war crimes.
We made up that term; rather ingenious, don\’t you think? How could there be such a thing as a war crime? The very nature of war is that the rules are off. It is so entertaining to watch the nations try to fight war according to the laws we have placed before them.
The only war crime there really is only involves the crime of being against us. Anyone against us is violating our law. As you have seen when someone is for us we do not care what they do. Was not Nelson Mandela a bomb-toting terrorist who killed many of his enemies? We made a hero of him. We observe no laws when it comes to war. We do what we want, when we want and where we want. We can starve nations to death, we can ruin civilians and any other horror for which we would take our enemies to court. Look at our example.
We bomb Serbia out of its wits, bomb Kosovans out of their homes, poison their rivers and streams, turn off their electricity making a grand crisis in that country, and then we masterfully make it appear it is all Mr. Milosevic\’s fault and he needs to go to court for it.
It is the same way we made our inferno at Waco look like Mr. Koresh\’s fault. Then there was our chief villain, Saddam with all of his weapons of mass destruction. Bad men are a dime a dozen and we can conjure one up whenever it suits us. This is really quite funny when you think of it. I am not one who is usually given to humour, but I do catch myself laughing sometimes at the absolute absurdity of the notions we place before you and you readily accept. Do you wonder that the leaders of the world tremble at our presence? They know they have no power except the power we give them. We have no fear of Russia or China for we are already in full control of their system of things. China knows that we can freeze any number of its corporations in America and all of its capital at the stroke of a pen. We want you to be in the system. When you are buying a house, we not only receive the tax revenue to use for our purposes, but we gain large increases from the interest on the loan. You may pay for your house two or three times over from the interest alone. The interest is also taxed which is again placed for use in those sectors of influence we choose. We do not want you to escape free and that is why we have made it as we have. You are our property. We will not permit you to buy or sell unless you submit to our mark of authority. If you go to court against us, we will wear you out there and in the end you will lose. If you use violence, we will end up having you in one of our labour camps, more specifically called prison industries. You need our money, our entertainments, our fuel, and our utilities to function and if you don\’t have them, you feel deprived. By this, you are made to yield to our will.

Classic nineteenth century European imperialists believed they were literally on a mission. I don\’t believe that the imperialists these days have that same sense of public service. They are simply pirates. John Pilger
I realised that what pirates do is so ghastly I simply didn\’t want to get into it. Tanith Lee
What do you want to be a sailor for? There are greater storms in politics than you will ever find at sea. Piracy, broadsides, blood on the decks. You will find them all in politics. – David Lloyd George
Why does yer Government lie to ye? The most fundamental values of yer country ha e been purposefully pirated away before yer eyes. They ha e left ye bilged on yer own anchor! Can ye fathom this, me hearties, crimps n Jennies?
The people seem so powerless against the lies yer Government tells ye, when the Government is not supposed to be agin ye, it\’s supposed to be ye! Ye, the American people, ha e been lied to. Clap the criminals in irons! .
Yer bonnie lads n lassies are dyin in a far-off land; those of ye who dissent are spied upon by an Administration that violates the Constitution. Yer economy has been plundered by massive lootin occurrin in the guise of war and disaster profiteerin . Yer tax money has been used t fly people to places aroun the world so they can be keelhauled and tortured whether they be guilty of anythin or not. An innercent people all over the planet die as a result of policies carried out in yer name that include subversion, sabotage, terrorism, torture, death squads, sexual slavery, and drug traffickin . Innocent Afghanis die today so that the U.S. can control both the heroin an the oil trades. The good ship America is listin badly to portside.
Today people in Afghanistan, Colombia, Haiti, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Palestine, Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan, Zimbabwe, and Democratic Republic of Congo die for this thing called the American way of life. Yesterday, it was Cuba, Iran, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Serbia, Guatemala, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Chile, Argentina, Libya, Grenada, Nicaragua, Indonesia, and East Timor. A salmagundi of piratical crimes! What exactly is that American way of life? .
Two separate studies ha e found that the U.S. has the most expensive health care system in the world, yet the worst, most notable for its lack of universal coverage. Accordin to the Pentagon, ye ha e 16,000 single moms serving in Iraq, an unprecedented number. The 2000 Presidential Election result was based on the illegal denial of the right to vote of duly registered voters by way of a purposefully corrupted “convicted felons list” that included people guilty of nothin but bein black, Democrat, and registered to vote in Florida. The 2004 Presidential election results in Ohio, accordin to Professor Bob Fitrakis of Ohio, were tallied on machines that housed Republican Party-oriented websites and that used software written by Republican Party loyalists. A recent study found that one-third of adults in Washington, DC, yer nation\’s capital city, are functionally illiterate, not being able to fill out job applications, read maps, or understand bus schedules. The Innocence Project just announced its 200th innocent released from a prison system that now occupies the number one slot in the world for number of people incarcerated. The University of Michigan just released a study confirmin what yer already knew: that hazardous waste facilities predominate in poor, minority neighborhoods. Hull House of Loyola University released a study findin that it would take 200 years for black Chicagoans to catch up to the quality of life experienced by white Chicagoans. Accordin to United for a Fair Economy it will take 1,664 years to close the home ownership gap between blacks and whites. Yer country now claims the top slot as the debt capital of the world.
An with the amount of money that ye\’ve already spent on the war, accordin to the National Priorities Project, Americans could have had instead: 1.8 million new teachers; Over 20 million college scholarships; Health insurance for over 60 million children; Or nearly 4 million new housing units. Is this the American way of life that yer children are dying for and the government lies to ye for? Or is it the record profits of Exxon, Microsoft, Apple , Halliburton, Boering, etc etc an others while the share of national income going to wages and salaries is at a record low? Ye should expect more from yer elected leadership. Is it time for mutiny? The Democrats didn\’t fight for their own true election results in 2000 or in 2004, so why should ye expect them to impeach an illegitimate Administration that has violated the U.S. Constitution and international law, lied to the American people, and sent yer fine lads n lassies into harm\’s way fer their own greed? .
In fact, the Democrats ha e just now made themselves complicit in impeachable crimes of the Bush Administration. On March 17, the Democrats became explicitly complicit in war crimes, torture, crimes against humanity, and crimes against peace. The American people voted for peace in last November\’s election. And they voted for justice. Ye din\’t get peace and ye don\’t have justice. What about a livable wage for America\’s workers? What about the right of return for Katrina survivors? What about repealin the Patriot Act, the Secret Evidence Act, and the Military Tribunals Act? Why is impeachment “off the table”? How can the Pentagon “lose” 2.3 trillion dollars! Why can\’t ye get that money back for jobs, health care, education, and yer veterans?
Forbid a man to think for himself or act for himself and you may add the joy of piracy and the zest of smuggling to his life. – Elbert Hubbard
Now and then we had a hope that if we lived and were good, God would permit us to be pirates. Mark Twain
It is when pirates count their booty that they become mere thieves. – William Bolitho .
The existence of the sea means the existence of pirates. – Malaysian proverb
Pirates could happen to anyone. Tom Stoppard
Even pirates, before they attack another ship, hoist a black flag. Bela Kiraly
There is nothing so desperately monotonous as the sea, and I no longer wonder at the cruelty of pirates. James Russell Lowell .
Merchant and pirate were for a long period one and the same person. Even today mercantile morality is nothing more than a poor refinement of piratical morality. Nietzsche
“Remember, in a pirate ship, in pirate waters, in a pirate world ask no questions. Believe only what you see. No, believe less than half of what you see. Roland Kibee
“A merry life and a short one shall be my motto.” Bartholamew Roberts, Pirate (Black Bart)
“I couldn\’t love a man who commands me – any more than I could love one who lets himself be commanded by me.” – Jacquotte Delahaye (Caribbean female Pirate)

You can always trust a dishonest man to be dishonest. Honestly, its the honest ones you have to look out for, cause you never know when they\’re going to do something incredibly stupid. Johnny Depp/Captain Jack

This morning a friend made a comment about the horrendous grammar she was finding in America today. Why was it so bad? And, why did some people bother to correct improper grammar. Rather than leap off into Ebonics or the evils of texting, or typing, etc, I took a different route to answer her. Here is my response. Some thirty million adults in the U.S. do not have the skills to perform even the most basic tasks such as adding numbers on a bank slip, identifying a place on a map, or reading directions for taking a medication. Eleven million Americans are totally illiterate in English. Only twenty-nine percent of Americans have basic reading and computing skills . One out of every twenty Americans lacks the ability to understand what is going on in the world or to develop an informed opinion for voting. With an illiterate, uneducated American citizenry, unable to understand what\’s happening in the world, it\’s no wonder that a fascist cabal has been able to take over. After all, they hijacked the system in the early 1900 s when they bought the companies that published the schoolbooks and began to infiltrate the universities with their minions to shape the educational policies they wished Americans to have. In this case it is primarily the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers. Thinking American citizens must always be aware that what goes on in society is the result of the planning of its rulers; they create precisely the social, psychological, economic, and ideological conditions which will realize their goal of excessive wealth for themselves and impoverishment for the working class. They are patient. They know this does not happen overnight. Therefore, it is no accident that America\’s schools have slowly eroded and that the intelligence of the average American has become so debilitated. American learning has plummeted and public school performance has nose-dived ever since the middle of the twentieth century because it was planned that way. Having been eddercated in the 50 s and 60 s I saw an incredible difference in the things my children were taught in school and had to fill in as many gaps as I could myself. This is up in Canada where we get similar problems in literacy and comprehension as well. In each culture, the public meanings, ideas, and skills transmitted through educational institutions – schools, academies, monasteries, universities – and through the media – newspapers, magazines, radio, TV, Internet – have always been determined by the small ruling elite – politicians, financiers, warriors, priests, scholars, scientists, corporations. In most cultures, the “ruling ideas” have fostered violence and class warfare. In only a few instances in have the “ruling ideas” fostered the betterment of common people and society at large. The last example of such a benevolent era was the eighteenth century Enlightenment, which encouraged people to develop broad understanding in all fields of knowledge. Highly educated, intelligent groups in Europe and America developed toward a democratic way of life, created constitutions, and founded institutions for public education. During this Enlightenment period, words and phrases such as “liberty,” “freedom,” “natural rights,” “pursuit of happiness,” “consent of the governed,” “informed citizenry,” came into being for the first time or were first understood by humans through their own experience. America has served as the beacon of these Enlightenment ideals, maintaining its faith in “the power of knowledge and reason in self-determination! Predictably, the very people who place American presidents, senators, and representatives in power, through the use of their multi-billion dollar fortunes, are the same monied interests that have deliberately destroyed American education. The Rockefellers, Fords, Morgans, Browns, Harrimans, Du Ponts, and other ruling families want obedient, efficient workers, not thinkers. Here is their philosophy straight from the mouth of a Rockefeller: “In our dream, we have limitless resources, and the people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hand. The present educational conventions fade from our minds; and, unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive folk. We shall not try to make these people or any of their children into philosophers or men of learning or science. We are not to rise up from among them authors, orators, poets, or men of letters. We shall not search for embryo great artists, painters, musicians. Nor will we cherish even the humbler ambition to rise up from among them lawyers, doctors, preachers, politicians, statesmen, of whom we now have ample supply. (How do we spell god complex?) The economic well-being of the nation depends on the presence of a large number of men who are content to labor hard all day long. Because men are naturally lazy they will not work unless forced by necessity to do so. The education of the poor threatens to rob the nation of their productivity. . . Every hour those poor people spend at their books is so much time lost to society. Going to school in comparison to working is idleness.” – Bernard de Mandeville “We must overcome the fetishism of the alphabet, of the multiplication tables, of grammars, of scales, and of bibliolatry. It would be no serious loss if a child never learned to read. American working-class children are a great army of incapables, shading down to those who should be in schools for dullards or subnormal children, for those whose mental development heredity decrees a slow pace and an early arrest.” G. Stanley Hall, Hopkins University The most controversial issues of the twenty-first century will pertain to the ends and means of modifying human behavior and who shall determine them. The first educational question will not be \’what knowledge is of the most worth?\’ but \’what kinds of human beings do we wish to produce?\’ The possibilities virtually defy the imagination. The future role of literacy in the workplace has been stated by Pierre Dogan, the president of Granite Communications, a company that is developing software for hotel housekeeping. They state that so long as maids can read room numbers, they will be able to check off tasks completed or order supplies by simply touching pictures on the screen. This way one can create a work program with prompting including iconic images. That makes it very easy to use a completely illiterate workforce. Then there is this very important aspect of literacy. Those who can “read” in the grammar school sense but who cannot read: understand the meaning of the words they see. There are those today, for example, who “read” about such things as worker layoffs and American corporations relocating their manufacturing plants in China or Indonesia, but who do not understand the meaning of what they “read.” It is just words and facts, no deeper levels of comprehension. Another kind of modern-day “illiteracy” occurs as people “read” or “hear” the “news” in newspapers or on TV , and allow themselves to be taken in by the propaganda that such “news” involves. This is where the mind controlled aspect of a populace comes in. This allows for the propagandizing of a culture towards an ultimate goal of the leaders, usually for their own aggrandizement. Hal Becker ex-Media Expert for the White House said, I know the secret of making the average American believe anything I want him to. Just let me control television…. You put something on the television and it becomes reality. If the world outside the TV set contradicts the images, people start trying to change the world to make it like the TV set images. Living in an age of repression, we become accustomed to it. So what if our schools no longer teach people how to read or think, no longer help students gain an understanding of why human liberty is so precious and precarious. All forms of media present images of “cool,” illiterate, violence-prone savages dressed in the latest styles and exhibiting the popular ego-centered attitudes. Unable to understand the creativity of a well-written novel or screenplay, no longer capable of appreciating the depths of classical music, they move in a grey world of ego-gratification and violence. Soon the false values become identified as the true, and we have movies such as Pulp Fiction, The Godfather, and The Little Mermaid touted as masterpieces. We only gain awareness of the oppressive nature of contemporary society when we become the victim of unemployment or a mugging or some other mishap. Trained to be oblivious to the plight of others, we fail to see the hundreds of thousands who suffer from homelessness, lack of medical care, and wage slavery. This is the source of much of the blind intolerance we run across here in Yahoo for example. Since people are encouraged to pursue their own interests, there is no feeling of solidarity and hence no possibility of concerted effort to overcome the oppressive conditions. It seems perfectly normal that a two-class society is rapidly developing. With new billionaires being created every year while millions of workers are laid off, denied welfare, and their tax money stolen by wealthy looters in such scams as the Enron/Anderson swindle, the savings and loan fraud, the Mexican “loan” scandal, and the IMF repayment to wealthy investors who suffered from the Asian stock market crash. And then there is Wal-Mart and its ways, we won t even go there! But they are in the lead for the types of employment we discuss here. For the oppressed to be able to wage the struggle for their liberation, they must perceive the reality of oppression not as a closed world from which there is no exit, but as a limiting situation which they can transform. America today is a combat zone where the War against Intelligence is constantly being waged. Unfortunately, the rulers are currently winning: Americans are progressively losing their ability to understand what is happening in the world around them. Americans are unable to see that the Bush administration is using the pretext of the war against terrorism to destroy essential constitutional liberties. Billions of dollars have been stolen by the wealthy while the working class is devastated through unemployment and lower wages. If one class possesses all the wealth and the education, while the residue of society is ignorant and poor, it matters not by what name the relation between them may be called; the latter, in fact and in truth, will be the servile dependents and subjects of the former. Americans are rapidly losing a sense of the values that made the country great. Anti-intellectual, racist or right-wing multiculturalism has replaced education, bought-paid-for politics has replaced democracy, funneling billions to the fat-cats has replaced statesmanship, and attacks on constitutional liberties has replaced political and judicial oversight. Wake up n smell da coffee folks.

Beneath our very noses, George Bush and his cabal are using time tested tactics to close down an open society. It is time to begin thinking of the unthinkable. It can happen in America and we are further along than most people realize. There is a blueprint for turning an open society into a dictatorship. That blueprint has been tweaked and is even more effective than before. It is very difficult to create and sustain a democracy, but closing one down is much simpler.

As difficult as this is to contemplate, it is clear that each of these steps has already been initiated in America. These 14 points were written by Dr.Laurence Britt, a political scientist. He studied the fascist regimes of Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, Suharto, and Pinochet.

1.Powerful and continuing expressions of nationalism. From prominent displays of flags to lapel pins and bikinis, the fervor to show patriotic nationalism is obvious. Catchy slogans, pride in the military, demands for unity are common themes of nationalism. This is coupled with a suspicion of foreign things that border on xenophobia.

2. Disdain for the importance of human rights. The regime views human rights as of little value and a hindrance to realize the objectives of the ruling elite. Through propaganda, people are brought to accept these human rights abuses by marginalizing, even demonizing those targeted. When abuse is egregious, the tactic is secrecy, denial, and disinformation.

*Fascism is not defined by the number of its victims but by the way it kills them. ~ J.P. Sartre

3. Identification of enemies/scapegoats as a unifying cause. Scapegoating is encouraged as a means to divert the peoples attention from other problems and to channel frustration in controlled directions. Propaganda and disinformation are highly effective. Since it is no longer acceptable to smear Jews or Blacks in political discourse, the right has turned to Muslims. Smears against Muslims are believable because of 911.

*The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. ~ Henry A. Wallace


Scapegoating is rolling back the gains of anti-racism. Anti-terror stunts and propaganda are demonizing Muslims and making Islamophobia the acceptable face of racism.

4. The supremacy of the military/avid militarism. Ruling elites always identify closely with the military and the industrial infrastructure that supports it. A disproportionate share of national resources is allocated to the military even when domestic needs are acute. The military is made an expression of nationalism and used whenever possible to assert national goals, intimidate other nations, and increase the power and prestige of the ruling elite.

5. Rampant sexism. Beyond the simple fact that the political elite and national culture are male dominated, these regimes consider women second class citizens. They are adamantly anti-abortion and homophobic.

6. A controlled mass media. Mass media under strict control will never stray from the party line. The leaders of the mass media are politically compatible with the power elite. The result is success in keeping the general public unaware of the regimes excesses.

*The American fascists are most easily recognized by their deliberate perversion of truth and fact. Their newspapers and propaganda carefully cultivate every fissure of disunity, every crack in the common front against fascism. ~ Henry A Wallace.

*I know the secret of making the average American believe anything I want him to. Just let me control television. You put something on television and it becomes reality. If the world outside the TV set contradicts the images, people start trying to change the world to make it fit the TV images. ~ Hal Becker, Federal Media Expert

*With a fascist the problem is never how to best present the truth to the public but how to best use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power. ~ Henry A. Wallace


Mass Mind Control through Network Television. Are Your Thoughts Your Own?

7. Obsession with national security. The national security apparatus is under direct control of the ruling elite. It is an instrument of oppression and modified behavioural control and operates in secret, beyond constraints. Its actions are justified under the rubic of homeland security and questioning its activities is portrayed as treasonous.

*Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death. ~ Adolf Hitler

*A new fascism promises security from the terror of crime. All that is required is that we take away the criminals rights which are, of course, our own. Out of our desperation and fear we begin to feel a sense of security from a new totalitarian state. Gerry Spence

*I m afraid, based on my own experience, fascism will come to America in the name of national security. ~ Jim Garrison

Fake Terror ~ The Road to War and Dictatorship from Ancient Rome to 911

Homeland Security ~ the end of civil liberties

8. Religion and ruling elite tied together. Fascist regimes attach themselves to the predominant religion of the country and portray themselves as militant defenders of that religion. The fact that the ruling elite s behavior is incompatible with the precepts of the religion is swept under the rug. Propaganda keeps up the illusion that the ruling elite are defenders of the faith and opponents of the godless. A perception created is that opposing the power elite is an attack on religion.

9. The power of corporations protected. Although the personal life of ordinary citizens is under strict control, large corporation operate in relative freedom. The elite see corporate structure as a way to not only ensure military production, but also as a means of social control. Members of the economic elite are pampered by the political elite to ensure a continued mutuality of interests, especially in the repression of have not citizens.

*Their final objective toward which all their deceit is directed is to capture political power so that using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjection. Henry A. Wallace

10. Power of labour suppressed or eliminated. Since organized labour is seen as the one power centre that could challenge the political hegemony of the ruling elite and its corporate allies, it is inevitably crushed or made powerless. The poor form an underclass, viewed with suspicion or contempt. Under some regimes being poor is considered a vice.

11. Disdain and suppression of intellectuals and the arts. Intellectuals and the freedom of ideas and expression associated with them are anathema to Fascism. Such academic freedom is considered subversive to national security and the patriotic ideal. Universities are tightly controlled; politically unreliable faculty harassed or eliminated. Unorthodox ideas of expressions of dissent are strongly attacked, silenced, or crushed. To these regimes, art and literature should serve the national interest or they have no right to exist.

*That which the Fascists hate above all else is intelligence. ~ Miguel De Unamuno

*There can be no real question that the Age of Enlightenment promoted the cause of freedom, more widely, directly, positively, than any age before it. It not only asserted but demonstrated the power of knowledge and reason in self-determination, the choice and realization of human purpose. For the first time in history it carried out a concerted attack on the vested interests that opposed the diffusion of knowledge and the free exercise of reason. ~ Herbert J. Muller

The Destruction of American Education and What We Must Do About It

12. Obsession with crime and punishment. Fascist regimes maintain Draconian systems of criminal justice with huge prison populations. The police are glorified and have almost carte blanche leading to rampant abuse. The lucky normal and political crimes are often merged into trumped up criminal charges and used against political opponents of the regime. Others die in mysterious plane crashes. Fear and hatred of criminals is promoted among the population as an excuse for more police power.

13. Rampant cronyism and corruption. Those in business circles and close to the power elite use their position to enrich themselves. This corruption works both ways. The power elite receive financial gifts and property from the economic elite who, in turn, gain the benefit of government favouritism. The power elite can obtain vast wealth from other sources as well: for example, by stealing national resources. With the national security apparatus under control and the media muzzled, this corruption is largely unconstrained and barely understood by the general population.

*We enter parliament in order to supply ourselves, in the arsenal of democracy, with its own weapons. If democracy is so stupid as to give us free tickets and salaries for this work, that is its affair. We do not come as friends or even as neutrals. We come as enemies. As the wolf bursts into the flock, so we come. Paul Joseph Goebbels

14. Fraudulent elections. Elections in the form of plebiscites or public opinion polls are usually bogus. When actual elections with candidates are held, they are perverted by the power elite to get the desired result. Common methods include maintaining control of the election machinery, intimidating and disenfranchising opposition voters, destroying or disallowing legal votes, and, as a last resort, turning to a judiciary beholden to the power elite.

Wipe out Amalek

Wipe out Amalek (Parasht Zachor)

Rabbi Zalman Baruch Melamed (Written by the rabbi)

Dedicated to the speedy recovery of Asher Ishaayahu Ben Rivka

Rabbi Zalman Baruch Melamed
Rabbi Zalman Baruch Melamed
“Remember what the Amalekites did to you on the way, when you left Egypt. They met you along the way and attacked the weak members of the nation at the back of the pack, and you were exhausted. They did not fear God… And it will be, when God gives you rest from your enemies round about, in the Land that God has given to you as an inheritance, you are mandated to wipe out the memory of Amalek from beneath the heavens – Do not forget!” (Devarim 25:17-18)

The mitzvah to remember the evil deeds of Amalek is not an obligation to merely remember that nation’s actions, but to recall that we have an obligation to blot out the memory of Amalek. There are those for whom this mitzvah is difficult to accept; their humanistic leanings have a hard time grappling with such a commandment…

We have witnessed this kind of attitude in the past, as the sages say in Tractate Yomah (22b) “When God say to King Saul: ‘Go and wipe out Amalek,’ Saul said: ‘For the murder of one soul, the Torah required the [intricate ceremony of] neck-breaking of a heifer, [‘Eglah Arufah’]. For all of these souls [that you have instructed me to kill] how much moreso would [such atonement be required!]’ And even if human members of that nation sinned, in what way did the animals sin [that I should be obligated to kill them?
And if the adults sinned, what did the children do to deserve death? A Heavenly Voice descended from on High and said: ‘Don’t be too much of a Tzaddik (Righteous person)”‘.

It was because of this attitude that Saul lost his position as King of Israel, because he acted compassionately to Agag, King of Amalek and did not kill him. Compassion towards the wicked is really wickedness. Because of Saul’s misplaced compassion, our sages tell us, the evil Haman- a direct descendant of Agag – was nearly able to exterminate us.

It is along these lines that Rabbi Levi opened his speech in honor of Purim: (Talmud, Megillah, 11a): “If you do not uproot the inhabitants of the Land, and allow them to remain – they will become thorns in your sides, and will cause trouble for you in the Land in which you dwell.” (Bamidbar 33:55) This verse is speaking of King Saul, and of his error in sparing Agag.

The mitzvah, then of wiping out Amalek, actually stems from the value of compassion and kindness – compassion on all those whom Amalek threatens to exterminate. This mitzvah is an ongoing one, and valid even today. The cursed Nazis were the spiritual heirs of Amalek. They did not just want to exterminate us; they succeeded in actually murdering many millions of our people, a full-one third of the world’s Jews! Today, too, there are those – driven by a deep-seeded anti-Semitism – who desperately wish to kill us. These are the people whom the Torah commanded us to obliterate, to leave no memory of them…

This last week has been busy; the highlight being a lovely 200 K drive through a few sets of low mountains along clear free stretches of highway where speeding was llimited only by the potholes and, fortunately for me, they had all been filled in maybe a day before my little jaunt. Wonderful way to charge the battery and hopefully now those auto woes are taken care of; apparently I was not driving enough to keep it charged.
It has been an action packed week politically as well. Trump is the eternal Energizer Lion, more energy than most politicians ever exhibit and actually working at fulfilling his promises to the American people. I am taking a comfortable chair and just watching things unfold and sometimes inhaling with deep satisfaction. An added bonus: the blowback from the women\’s march still tickles me ~ or makes me nauseous.
Anyhow, please enjoy. I hope your past week was full of good things and that the one ahead even more so. Is it cruel to mention that I saw spring melt and that the early flowers of spring are already beginning to pop up?
Check this link out. I am Canadian and I managed to sign this petition.

Once again, the US is playing poker in the Middle East, while its enemies play chess. Below: As heavy urban fighting in Damascus and Aleppo erodes the cohesion of President Bashar al-Assad\’s military and security apparatus and prospects for him retreating to a “rump state” harboring his Alawite faith fade, the regime appears fatally damaged.
However, neither rebel unity nor a foreign intervention in Syria seems imminent, and the regime\’s tactic of offering greater Kurdish autonomy is unsettling its opponents.
Bulgarian Victor Kotsev is a journalist and political analyst who lived and worked in Israel for a number of years.
By Victor Kotsev
July 31, 2012 The regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad may be mortally wounded, but its rule is not yet over.
This is the grim message reinforced by armored columns rolling into the major cities, and of relentless air and artillery strikes on the capital Damascus and the commercial heart of the country, the northern city Aleppo. Assad tried to stick to the narrative that national unity could be salvaged by appointing three Sunni Muslims, all of them his hard-line supporters, to fill in for the security chiefs who were assassinated last week. “The notorious Rustum Ghazali, who ruled Lebanon with an iron fist, is among them,” the prominent Syria expert at the University of Oklahoma, Joshua Landis, wrote in his blog. “This is an effort to keep the Sunni-Alawi alliance alive. Baathist rule has been built on the Sunni-Alawi alliance, which has all but collapsed since the beginning of the uprising. The defections of high level Sunnis recently underscores that it is moribund.” The influential American-based intelligence analysis organization Stratfor concurs with the conclusion that despite all his efforts, Assad\’s days are numbered. “We have argued that so long as the military and security apparatus remain intact and effective, the regime could endure,” Stratfor wrote in a recent analysis. “Although they continue to function, neither appears intact any longer; their control of key areas such as Damascus and Aleppo is in doubt, and the reliability of their personnel, given defections, is no longer certain … The regime has not unraveled, but it is unraveling”. [1] Nor does the option of Assad retreating to some sort of an Alawite “rump state” seem particularly viable. Some commentators have suggested that such a state could center around the Western port city of Latakia, a traditional Alawite stronghold (to see a map of the Syrian conflict, click here ).
A recent report in Abu Dhabi\’s The National, for example, argues that an accompanying process of brutal identity-based cleansing may already have started. “Recent attacks, such as the massacre on July 12 in the village of Tremseh, appeared calculated to push Sunnis in western Syria out of their traditional homes and east, away from potential Alawite strongholds,” the newspaper writes.
“The theory runs that the Assad regime plans to push fearful Sunnis out of the areas west of Homs and Hama, which both remain Sunni-majority cities.” [2] However, the long-term sustainability of such a state is almost as questionable as the methods that may be implemented to usher it in. As Joshua Landis writes in a separate blog post,
Most importantly, an Alawite state is indefensible. Alawite shabiha (thugs) and brigades of Special Forces may fall back to the Alawite Mountains when Damascus is lost. But how long could they last? As soon as Syria\’s Sunni militias unite, as presumably they will, they would make hasty work of any remaining Alawite resistance.
Whoever owns Damascus and the central state will own the rest of Syria in short order. They will have the money, they will have legitimacy, and they will have international support. Syria could not survive without the coast. More importantly, it would not accept to do without the coast and the port cities of Tartus and Latakia. All the coastal cities remain majority Sunni to this day. [3]

For now, nevertheless, Assad seems to have shored up his security apparatus, badly damaged after the urban offensive of the rebels and the high-profile terror attack in Damascus last week.
According to most reports, his forces have largely “secured” the capital where a large but unknown number of bodies have piled up and are preparing for a decisive offensive in Aleppo. The use of both helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft has picked up significantly, and fighter planes are allegedly employed heavily in the government counter-offensive. Comparisons with Libya are unavoidable even when diplomats seek to distance themselves from them.
On Thursday, United States Department of State spokeswoman Victoria Nuland expressed concern during a press conference that “we will see a massacre in Aleppo, and that\’s what the regime appears to be lining up for”. She rejected references to the situation in the Libyan city of Benghazi just prior to the aerial campaign against former Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi, saying that “There are a vast number of differences,” yet her words suggested that the differences pertain more to Assad\’s military strength and foreign backers, as well as to the lack of unity among the opposition, than to the American desire for action. [4] There are signs of a new initiative to unite the Syrian rebels. It is spearheaded by General Manaf Tlass, dubbed “Syria\’s most prominent defector,” who abandoned Assad several weeks ago.
Tlass is the scion of a prominent Sunni Muslim family in Syria which until recently was a key pillar of support for the regime. His hands, however, are clean in the current bloodshed, and despite lingering suspicions against him on the part of the opposition, he is seen as its potential leader ~ perhaps even somebody who could step in for Assad under a hypothetical internationally-backed deal.
Tlass, currently courting the Saudis and Turks. He seems aggressively pro NWO according to his pandering. “I will try to help as much as I can to unite all the honorable people inside and outside Syria to put together a roadmap to get us out of this crisis, whether there is a role for me or not,” Tlass told the newspaper Asharq Alawsat on Thursday during a visit in Saudi Arabia.
His itinerary also reportedly includes Turkey, suggesting that he is trying to secure the backing of the Syrian opposition\’s key regional sponsors. In any case, however, neither rebel unity nor a foreign intervention in Syria appear to be imminent, whereas the decline in rebel momentum could mirror the failed opposition offensive in the city of Homs earlier this year, when speculations that Assad was finished proved similarly premature. Meanwhile, the Syrian regime seems to be implementing a lesson or two of its own from the Libyan case. Whether or not it was involved in any of the recent terror attacks in Bulgaria and elsewhere ~ Gaddafi also had threatened Europe with terror ~ Assad appears ready to take the fight into his enemies\’ territory, for example by allowing greater Kurdish autonomy in Syria as a way of destabilizing Turkey. In the last days, the Syrian army reportedly withdrew from at least six Kurdish towns, where a coalition of Kurdish (mostly political) forces took over. The Syrian Kurds are split among themselves, and have allegedly vowed to stay neutral in the civil war, but at least some of them are allied with Assad and the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) which is responsible for much of the terror activity in Turkey. The situation in which the PKK would have a base to operate freely in Syria is unpalatable to the Turkish leaders, and mirrors Ankara\’s treatment of Assad. The Turkish attempts in the last months to lure the Kurds by cultivating a close relationship with Iraq\’s Kurdish leadership may not work well in Syria, where the regime has enjoyed a long relationship with the PKK. As a Kurdish politician told the web site, “The areas where these Kurdish factions have raised their flags are those Bashar al-Assad gave to them.” [5]

Reportedly, Western attempts to oust Assad are running aground also on account of deficient intelligence-gathering operations.

“Interviews with US and foreign intelligence officials revealed that the CIA has been unable to establish a presence in Syria, in contrast with the agency\’s prominent role gathering intelligence from inside Egypt and Libya during revolts in those countries,” the Washington Post wrote on Tuesday.

“With no CIA operatives on the ground in Syria and only a handful stationed at key border posts, the agency has been heavily dependent on its counterparts in Jordan and Turkey and on other regional allies.” [6]

If the report is accurate, this would be a new illustration of the saying that the US is playing poker in the Middle East, while its enemies play chess. It is believed that Russia has the most extensive intelligence network in Syria, greater even than that of Iran. It would be the most likely culprit for a palace coup ~ as one scenario has it ~ as well as the best potential broker for a deal for Assad\’s voluntary ouster. As a Russian diplomat hinted last week, Russia may not be opposed to such a deal. [7]

It is important to pay close attention to Russia\’s dealings with the Syrian opposition, as well as with figures such as Manaf Tlass.

However, even Russia would presumably need broad support in order to help usher in a political transition in Syria, and a consensus seems unlikely in the immediate future. On Wednesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov accused the US of “direct endorsement of terrorism” [8] in the most recent episode in a series of heated exchanges. It appears, therefore, that conditions are ripe for the Assad regime to hang on to power for a while longer, and for the violence to continue to escalate. NOTES:

Below: The longer Bashar al-Assad clings to power in an ever more fractious Syria, the more the United States will have to shrink a super-sized dream for regime change and the less the Gulf states can count on Syria as a proxy in the battle with Shi\’ite Iraq and Iran. From looking like it misplayed its hand, China is seeing events spin fortune its way. Peter Lee writes on East and South Asian affairs and their intersection with US foreign policy. Peter Lee
July 28, 2012
The question before the People\’s Republic of China (PRC) leadership is how badly it misplayed its hand on Syria. Or did it?
Certainly, the solution advocated by Russia and China – a coordinated international initiative to sideline the insurrection in favor of a negotiated political settlement between the Assad regime and its domestic opponents – is a bloody shambles. As articulated in the Annan plan, it might have been a workable, even desirable option for the Syrian people as well as the Assad regime. But Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey were determined not to let it happen. And the United States, in another case of the Middle Eastern tail wagging the American dog, has downsized its dreams of liberal-democratic revolution for the reality of regime collapse driven in significant part by domestic thugs and opportunists, money and arms funneled in by conservative Gulf regimes, violent Islamist adventurism, and neo-Ottoman overreach by Turkey\’s Prime Minister Recep Erdogan. But a funny thing happened last week. The Assad regime didn\’t collapse, despite an orchestrated, nation-wide assault (coordinated, we can assume, by the crack strategists of the international anti-Assad coalition): a decapitating terrorist bombing in the national security directorate, near-simultaneous armed uprisings in the main regime strongholds of Damascus and Aleppo, and the seizure of many of Syria\’s official border crossings with Iraq and Turkey. The border adventures revealed some holes in the insurgents\’ game, as far as showing their ability to operate independently outside of their strongholds to hold territory, and in the vital area of image management. Juan Cole of the University of Michigan laid out the big picture strategic thinking behind some of the border seizures on his blog, Informed Comment:
If the FSA can take the third crossing from Iraq, at Walid, they can control truck traffic into Syria from Iraq, starving the regime. The border is long and porous, but big trucks need metalled roads, which are few and go through the checkpoints. Some 70% of goods coming into Syria were coming from Iraq, because Europe cut off trade with the Baath regime of Bashar al-Assad.
The rebels are increasingly in a position to block that trade or direct it to their strongholds. [1]
According to an Iraqi deputy minister of the interior, the units that seized the border were perhaps not the goodwill ambassadors that the Syrian opposition or Dr Cole might have hoped for:
The top official said Iraqi border guards had witnessed the Free Syrian Army take control of a border outpost, detain a Syrian army lieutenant colonel, and then cut off his arms and legs. “Then they executed 22 Syrian soldiers in front of the eyes of Iraqi soldiers.” [2]
They reportedly also raised the al-Qaeda flag.

The forces participating in the operation at the Turkish border crossings were also an interesting bunch – and certainly not all local Syrian insurgents, as AFP reported:
By Saturday evening, a group of some 150 foreign fighters describing themselves as Islamists had taken control of the post. These fighters were not at the site on Friday, when rebel fighters captured the post. Some of the fighters said they belonged to Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), while others claimed allegiance to the Shura Taliban. They were armed with Kalashnikov assault rifles, rocket launchers and improvised mines. The fighters identified themselves as coming from a number of countries: Algeria, France, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates – and the Russian republic of Chechnya [3]
The operation also had a distinct whiff of Taliban-at-the-Khyber-Pass about it, as the fighters looted and, in some cases, torched more than two dozen Turkish trucks, to the embarrassment of the Erdogan government. Aside from occupation of frontier posts by the kind of hardened foreign Islamist fighters that, before Bashar al-Assad\’s removal became a pressing priority, served as the West\’s ultimate symbol of terrorism run amok, things have gotten quite lively at the Syria/Turkish border. It is alleged that, in order to fill the vacuum left by the departure of Syrian border forces to fight the insurgents in the heartland, the Syrian regime has turned over local security to Syrian Kurdish political groups, and Kurdish flags are flying all over Syria\’s northeast. Not to be left out of the rumpus, the president of the virtually-independent region of Iraqi Kurdistan, Masoud Barzani, announced that Syrian Kurd army deserters sheltering in northern Iraq have been organized into an expeditionary force that will, at the proper time, return home to keep order in the Kurdish areas of Syria. Presumably the strongly pro-American Iraqi Kurds under Barzani can easily be induced to inflict mischief on Assad, but at the same time they will feel little incentive to minimize the Kurdish nationalist headache Erdogan has created for himself on Turkey\’s southeastern border. [4] Now that the democratic opposition, the overseas agitators of the Syrian National Congress, and the insurrectionists of the Free Syrian Army have all taken their shot at the Assad regime and failed, at least for the time being, attention is once again turning to “the Yemen solution”, a k.a. regime restructuring featuring the symbolic removal of an embattled strongman, lip service toward democratic reform, and the continuation of business as usual under a selected junta of more palatable regime strongmen. Or, as the Syrian National Council put it on July 24:
“We would agree to the departure of Assad and the transfer of his powers to a regime figure, who would lead a transitional period like what happened in Yemen,” SNC spokesman Georges Sabra told AFP . [5]
The SNC\’s statement found a prompt echo from US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to Xinhua:
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday urged Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to plan a political transition in his violence-plagued country.
“We do believe that it is not too late for the al-Assad regime to commence with planning for a transition, to find a way that ends the violence by beginning the kind of serious discussions that have not occurred to date,” Clinton told reporters [6]
It is perhaps unnecessary to mention that for the last few months the groups steadfastly opposed to any “serious discussions” have been the anti-Assad coalition and the SNC, while Assad, backed by Russia and China, has been gamely attempting to cobble together a loyal opposition with sufficient heft to credibly discuss political reform. But all of a sudden, it seems not everyone is singing from the same hymnal:

Earlier Tuesday, some Western media reported that SNC spokesman George Sabra said the main opposition group was willing to accept a transition led temporarily by a member of the current government if President Bashar al-Assad agrees to step down.

“This is an utter lie. Neither Mr. Sabra nor Ms. Kodmani has made these statements,” SNC European foreign relations coordinator Monzer Makhous told Russia\’s Interfax news agency, referring to Bassma Kodmani, the SNC\’s head of foreign relations. Makhous said the opposition would not agree to accept talks with the Assad government as “no persons associated with murders of the Syrian people could participate in the talks.” [7]
It remains to be seen how the AFP or Secretary Clinton ~ or, for that matter, the unhappy spokesman Georges Sabra ~ respond to this rebuke. One catches hints of a possible disconnect between Gulf-state intransigence (which has driven the “Assad must go” rhetoric of the last year and a half”) and US and EU dreams of a quick, face-saving resolution along the lines of Yemen. A “Yemen solution” would probably also be acceptable to Russia and China. Instead of Syria becoming a pro-Western/Sunni dagger aimed at the heart of Shi\’ite Iraq and Iran, it would instead become a dysfunctional, expensive, and bloody liability for the West and the Gulf Cooperation Council. In other words, just like Yemen. There are, however, problems with the Yemen precedent for Syria that go beyond the unwillingness of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to settle for anything less than a triumphal march into a conquered Damascus. The key event in the “Yemen solution” was President Saleh getting blown up in his palace mosque. Although he wasn\’t killed, he was injured badly enough that he was removed from the scene for several months as he underwent medical treatment, allowing a new crew in the presidential palace to undertake the transition. The anti-Assad coalition had worse luck with the bomb in Damascus; Assad was not present at the meeting, he is still the face of the Syrian regime, and his inconvenient presence makes it more difficult for the international community to claim victory in principle while allowing the regime to survive in practice. There\’s another problem with the Yemen solution; although there are continued news reports, leaks, and analyses ~ and, most recently, a proposal by the Arab League ~ ballyhooing the idea that Assad can receive immunity from prosecution for crimes against humanity under the International Criminal Court if he agrees to leg it to Russia, there is no way for the coalition to provide a convincing guarantee to him, let alone his family and associates under the current state of affairs. The fact is, the entire purpose of the Treaty of Rome, which set up the International Criminal Court, was to prevent this sort of sordid deal-cutting. In practice the ICC is something of an unhappy mutant. Its fundamental premise of “universal jurisdiction” ~ the idea that bad guys could be prosecuted in the courts of any member country – was undermined by the United States and other countries not to keen to see their political and military supremos vulnerable to prosecution in some remote do-goodery or hostile jurisdiction. The result was an unwieldy two-tier system. Those states with a masochistic desire to permit other nations to interfere in their criminal affairs ratified the treaty, becoming “states parties”. Within this exclusive club, universal jurisdiction reigns. States that merely signed the treaty – “non states parties” – are not subject to universal jurisdiction. Their miscreants can only be brought to justice by the consent of their own governments or if the UN Security Council decided that the overriding demands of international security merited the opening of a prosecution. This was still not enough for the United States, which took the ungraceful step of “unsigning” the Treaty of Rome. Yemen had placed itself in the exalted company of the United States by also “unsigning” the treaty in 2007, so a successor regime has no immediate recourse to the ICC and ex-president Saleh\’s fate is in the sympathetic hands of the United States and the rest of the UN Security Council.
Just to be safe, the Yemeni transitional government went the extra mile of granting irrevocable immunity (binding on future, perhaps less friendly governments) to Saleh and his aides. Ironically (or predictably) the Yemen solution has short-changed the law-and-democracy friendly opposition we supposedly cared so much about, in favor of placing a new, tractable regime (best described as the old regime sans Saleh) in power. This does not sit well with Tawakkul Karman, a co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2011for her brave pro-democracy and women\’s-rights activism in Yemen. She has been fruitlessly calling on the UNSC to direct the ICC to open a prosecution of Saleh. After a visit to The Hague, she met with a reporter from AFP:
Because Yemen has not signed the court\’s founding treaty, the Rome Statute, the only way the prosecutor could launch an investigation is if the United Nations Security Council tells him to. “This is unfair,” Karman said on the steps of the court\’s headquarters. “They have to find a new way to bring everyone who is killing his people to here, to this building.” [8]
However, in the matter of ICC jurisdiction, Syria recapitulates Libya and C te d\’Ivoire, not Yemen. Libya had signed but not ratified the treaty; so it took a UN Security Council resolution to place Muammar Gaddafi and his family and associates within the jurisdiction of the ICC while they were still in power. Syria is in the same boat ~ a signer but not a ratifier. With the current regime in place, it would indeed take a UN Security Council resolution to get Assad and his associates on the hook for war crimes under an ICC prosecution, and that simply isn\’t going to happen. However, if Assad were to leave power, a successor regime in Syria can issue a declaration submitting itself to ICC jurisdiction retroactively, in order to cover crimes against humanity committed by prior leaders back to the date of the court\’s establishment in 2002. That, indeed, is what happened in C te d\’Ivoire, when the current government was turned over the former president, Laurent Gbagbo, to the ICC for prosecution for crimes against humanity allegedly committed while he tried to cling to power following a lost election in 2010. [9] Given the intense rancor surrounding the bloody crackdown in Syria and the crimes against humanity that were undoubtedly committed, it would appear extremely difficult for the international coalition to offer a convincing assurance that a victorious opposition (which, in addition to rebels bought and paid for by Qatar and Saudi Arabia, also includes a large number of principled and righteously and rightfully incensed Syrians) would not, as its first order of business, call on the ICC to prosecute quite a few leaders of the previous regime for crimes against humanity. This was a point made by Navi Pillay, head of the UN Human Rights Commission. Reportage at the time characterized Pillay as gratuitously adding complications that would make it harder to cut a deal with Assad, but she was simply making a statement of fact. So the offer to allow Assad to go into exile with a promise of immunity is unlikely to sway him, his backers in Russia and China, or the military and security officers nervously regarding the red harvest of judicial and extra-judicial revenge that would follow any regime overthrow. With the Syrian regime proving resistant to a quick collapse, and anti-Assad sentiment within the regime stifled by fear of victor\’s justice, what\’s Plan B? IT SEEMS TO BE SEND IN THE CLOWNS. In other words, find an ex-regime figurehead who is at least superficially palatable to the Syrian populace and sufficiently obedient to the foreign coalition, and can also persuade the Assad regime that his first act will be to push a bill through the (presumably unrepresentative, hand-picked, and tractable) transitional legislature granting a graceful exit to Assad and amnesty to his associates (aside from some carefully-chosen scapegoats) from prosecution for their past crimes in the name of reconciliation. (It should be noted in passing that the ICC is not supposed to recognize this kind of legislated impunity and the victims of Assad and the Ba\’ath regime would still have the right to apply to the ICC prosecutor to open a case, but presumably this can be finessed.) [10] The initial candidate for the exalted role of transition leader is Brigadier General Manaf Tlass, who fled Syria amid widespread huzzahs a few weeks ago.
Tlass has been literally grooming himself for his role as popular leader for months, growing out his military haircut into a heroic Byronic mane prior to his defection.

His photographic prop is a big cigar, presumably to reinforce the image of manly leadership, and he issued a post-defection statement describing how his patriotic qualms concerning the Assad regime\’s brutal counter-insurgency operations had led to his sidelining from the military chain of command (and fortuitously exonerating him from implication in the worst excesses of regime forces). He is also, apparently, France\’s great hope for clout in Syria, as this priceless excerpt from the Christian Science Monitor reveals:
Now, Mustafa [his father] and Tlass\’s sister, Nahed Ojjeh, are living in Paris, where Ms. Ojjeh is a prominent socialite who once dated a former French foreign minister. “France has a longstanding relationship with the Tlass family, going back to the 1980s. Manaf\’s sister throws lavish dinner parties and infiltrated the French political and media elites,” says Mr. Bitar.
“When she became the mistress of a foreign minister, there was a national security risk for France, but the president then chose to turn a blind eye because he felt there was need for backchannel diplomacy between France and the Assad regime.
“Given these old ties, France today might be thinking of grooming Manaf Tlass and counting on him to play an important role in the post-Assad transition phase.” [11]
Manaf Tlass is the foppish scion of a family of mysteriously wealthy and allegedly fornicating emigres and, by Syrian army standards, also a lightweight, owing his rank to his father, who once served as Assad\’s Minister of Defense. Despite that, he is emerging as Saudi Arabia\’s favored candidate as figurehead for the new Syria.
Perhaps this is because Tlass, with his embrace of non-Islamist financial and moral values, would present a reassuring secularist face to the West while at the same time serving as a compliant accessory to Gulf interests.

However, Qatar appears comfortable with another high-level defector, one who also happens to be Sunni (as is Tlass), but was an important cog in the Assad machine and has hands-on experience with the nitty gritty of restoring order in a violent and dangerous set of circumstances. The man is Nawaff al-Faris, formerly Syria\’s ambassador to Iraq. According to an interlocutor communicating with the As\’ad AbuKhalil\’s Angry Arab blog, Ambassador Nawaff is quite a piece of work, having earned his bones with the Ba\’ath regime as battalion commander during the legendary Hama massacre of 1982, the action that routed the Muslim Brotherhood from Syria at the cost of around 20,000 lives in that one city:
“I know about this man, Nawaf al-Faris, the defecting ambassador of Syria to Iraq, from the … the Hama area. Hama people remember him well. He was commanding one of the battalions that committed atrocities there in 1982, and i heard it from Hama and Halab older people (now dead) that he personally threw 16 young boys youngest was 6, from the rooftop of a building before their parents\’ eyes. he was very close to the regime, as much as the Tlass clan, except that he commands a larger following among Bedouins in the Euphrates area his flight through Qatar, rather than Turkey, means that the Qataris have big plans for him in post-Assad Syria. You will hear his name again. Avery very dirty and cruel man.” [12]
Nawaff might be a good choice in the eyes of Qatar, but installing one of the butchers of Hama would presumably not be the kind of Arab Spring triumph that the West is looking for in Syria.
So perhaps the search will continue for a more suitable candidate, while hoping that the remorseless grind of violence, sanctions, and anger will finally crack the power of the Assad regime. However, when we talk about “events spinning out of control in Syria” we can also take it as a reference to the international game plan for Syria.

Indirectly enabling regime collapse through a disorderly collection of guerillas is no substitute for sending in a big, shiny army to occupy the capital and dictate events.

The longer regime collapse is delayed, the greater the risk that important elements of the insurrection might slip the leash, start fighting with each other as well as against Assad, and contribute to the creation of a failed state where Syria used to be. Therefore, even as international support for the insurgency escalates, the anti-Assad coalition finds it particularly frustrating that China and Russia have refused to vote for escalated UN Security Council sanctions that, under the pretext of supporting the moribund Annan peace initiative, might expedite the collapse of the Syrian regime. For all the principled talk by Russia and China concerning non-interference and the right of the people of Syria to control their destiny, it is difficult to escape the inference that they are not particularly unhappy with the current turn of events. After the West rounded on China and Russia for vetoing another round of sanctions against Syria, Beijing shrugged off the criticism. People\’s Daily approvingly reproduced a Global Times editorial that stated:
China also opposes the UN Security Council openly picking sides in Syria\’s internal conflict. It insists that the Syrians should seek a political solution through their own negotiations. This is a bottom line that must be upheld so as to prevent the West from overthrowing any regime at will. [13]
Bashar al-Assad is doing a pretty good job of staying in power and crushing the insurrection. The longer he is able to cling to power, the more shattered and divided Syria becomes – and the less useful it is to the West and the Gulf states as a proxy warrior in the battle with Shi\’ite Iraq and Iran.

By Tony Cartalucci THE LAND DESTROYER December 30, 2011
The LA Times reported , “Egypt raids foreign organizations\’ offices in crackdown. Three U.S. groups are among those raided. Activists say the army is using the ruse of foreign intervention to stoke nationalism and deflect criticism of abuses.”
Photo : (AP) US State Department agitators from the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) subsidary, the National Democratic Institute, standby as Egyptian security forces raid their offices. Despite NED veritably being run by Neo-Conservative, corporate-fascists who have signed PNAC documents declaring their intentions of achieving and maintaining a century of global hegemony, they and the US State Department would decry Egypt\’s crackdown on their insidious activities as a slight against “human rights.”
However, it is no “ruse” as the US-funded “activists” claim. And while the LA Times denies its readership a documented back-story either confirming or denying “activist claims,” understanding the US role in funding sedition in Egypt is essential to understanding why not only are the raids of NGOs justified, but an absolute necessity to protect both Egyptian national sovereignty and internationa l stability.

DOCUMENTED BACK-STORY OF THE US-ENGINEERED “ARAB SPRING” IN EGYPT In January of 2011, we were told that “spontaneous,” “indigenous” uprising had begun sweeping North Africa and the Middle East, including Hosni Mubarak\’s Egypt, in what was hailed as the “Arab Spring.” It would be almost four months before the corporate-media would admit that the US had been behind the uprisings and that they were anything but “spontaneous,” or “indigenous.” In an April 2011 article published by the New York Times titled, U.S. Groups Helped Nurture Arab Uprisings ,” it was stated:
“A number of the groups and individuals directly involved in the revolts and reforms sweeping the region, including the April 6 Youth Movement in Egypt, the Bahrain Center for Human Rights and grass-roots activists like Entsar Qadhi, a youth leader in Yemen, received training and financing from groups like the International Republican Institute, the National Democratic Institute and Freedom House, a nonprofit human rights organization based in Washington.”
The article would also add, regarding the US National Endowment for Democracy (NED):
“The Republican and Democratic institutes are loosely affiliated with the Republican and Democratic Parties. They were created by Congress and are financed through the National Endowment for Democracy, which was set up in 1983 to channel grants for promoting democracy in developing nations. The National Endowment receives about $100 million annually from Congress. Freedom House also gets the bulk of its money from the American government, mainly from the State Department. ”
It is hardly a speculative theory then, that the uprisings were part of an immense geopolitical campaign conceived in the West and carried out through its proxies with the assistance of disingenuous organizations including NED, NDI, IRI, and Freedom House and the stable of NGOs they maintain throughout the world.
Preparations for the “Arab Spring” began not as unrest had already begun, but years before the first “fist” was raised, and within seminar rooms in D.C. and New York, US-funded training facilities in Serbia, and camps held in neighboring countries, not within the Arab World itself.
In 2008, Egyptian activists from the now infamous April 6 movement were in New York City for the inaugural Alliance of Youth Movements (AYM) summit , also known as There, they received training, networking opportunities, and support from AYM\’s various corporate and US governmental sponsors, including the US State Department itself.
The AYM 2008 summit report (page 3 of .pdf) states that the Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs, James Glassman attended, as did Jared Cohen who sits on the policy planning staff of the Office of the Secretary of State. Six other State Department staff members and advisers would also attend the summit along with an immense list of corporate, media, and institutional representatives. Shortly afterward, April 6 would travel to Serbia to train under US-funded CANVAS , formally the US-funded NGO “Otpor” who helped overthrow the government of Serbia in 2000. Otpor, the New York Times would report , was a “well-oiled movement backed by several million dollars from the United States.”
After its success it would change its name to CANVAS and begin training activists to be used in other US-backed regime change operations. The April 6 Movement, after training with CANVAS, would return to Egypt in 2010, along with UN IAEA Chief Mohammed ElBaradei. April 6 members would even be arrested while awaiting for ElBaradei\’s arrival at Cairo\’s airport in mid-February.
ED: Being arrested is a sure in with the disenfranchised young of the nation. It automatically gives the arrestee street cred as well as, alas, believability. WHY he went to JAIL man! He IS THE REAL THING!
Already, ElBaradei, as early as 2010, announced his intentions of running for president in the 2011 elections. Together with April 6, Wael Ghonim of Google , and a coalition of other opposition parties, ElBaradei assembled his ” National Front for Change ” and began preparing for the coming “Arab Spring.” Clearly then, unrest was long planned, with activists from Tunisia and Egypt on record receiving training and support from abroad, so that they could return to their home nations and sow unrest in a region-wide coordinated campaign. An April 2011 AFP report would confirm this , when US State Department\’s Michael Posner stated that the
“US government has budgeted $50 million in the last two years to develop new technologies to help activists protect themselves from arrest and prosecution by authoritarian governments.”
The report went on to explain that the US “organized training sessions for 5,000 activists in different parts of the world. A session held in the Middle East about six weeks ago gathered activists from Tunisia, Egypt, Syria and Lebanon who returned to their countries with the aim of training their colleagues there.”
Posner would add, “They went back and there\’s a ripple effect.”
That ripple effect of course, is the “Arab Spring.”

The National Endowment for Democracy, despite the lofty mission statement articulated on its website , is nothing more than a tool for executing American foreign policy. Just as the military is used under the cover of lies regarding WMD\’s and “terrorism,” NED is employed under the cover of bringing “democracy” to “oppressed” people.
However, a thorough look at NED\’s board of directors, as well as the board of trustees of its subsidiary, Freedom House, definitively lays to rest any doubts that may be lingering over the true nature of these organizations and the causes they support.

Upon NED\’s board of directors we first find John Bohn who traded petrochemicals, was an international banker for 13 years with Wells Fargo, and is currently serving as a principal for a global advisory and consulting firm, GlobalNet Partners , which assists foreign businesses by making their “entry into the complex China market easy.”
Surely Bohn\’s ability to manipulate China\’s political landscape through NED\’s various activities both inside of China and along its peripheries constitutes an alarming conflict of interest.
However, it appears “conflict of interest” is a reoccurring theme throughout both NED and Freedom House.

Bohn is joined by Rita DiMartino who worked for Council on Foreign Relations corporate member AT&T as “Vice President of Congressional Relations” as well as a member of the CFR herself.
Also representing the Fortune 500 is Kenneth Duberstein , a board member of the war profiteering Boeing Company, big oil\’s ConocoPhillips , and the Mack-Cali Realty Corporation. Duberstein also served as a director of Fannie Mae until 2007. He too is a CFR member as are two of the companies he chairs, Boeing and ConocoPhillips . We then consider several of the certified warmongers serving upon NED\’s board of directors including Francis Fukuyama , Zalmay Khalilzad , Will Marshall , and Vin Weber , all signatories of the pro-war, pro-corporate Project for a New American Century .
Within the pages of documents produced by this “think tank” are pleas to various US presidents to pursue war against sovereign nations, the increase of troops in nations already occupied by US forces, and what equates to a call for American global hegemony in a Hitlerian 90 page document titled ” Rebuilding Americas Defenses .”
As we will see, this warmongering think tank serves as a nexus around which fellow disingenuous rights advocate Freedom House also gravitates. The ” Statement of Principles ,” signed off by NED chairmen Francis Fukuyama, Zalmay Khalilzad, and Vin Weber, states,
“we need to accept responsibility for America\’s unique role in preserving and extending an international order friendly to our security, our prosperity, and our principles.”
Of course by “international order” they mean meddling beyond the sovereign borders of the United States and it is merely used as a euphemism for global imperialism. Other Neo-Con that signed their name to this statement include Freedom House\’s Paula Dobriansky , Dan Quayle (formally), and Donald Rumsfeld (formally), along with Paul Wolfowitz, Dick Cheney, Eliot Cohen, and Elliot Abrams.
A PNAC ” Statment on Post-War Iraq ” regarding a wholehearted endorsement of nation-building features the signatures of NED chairman Will Marshall, Freedom House\’s Frank Carlucci (2002), and James Woolsey (formally), along with Martin Indyk ( Lowy Institute board member , co-author of the conspiring ” Which Path to Persia? ” report), and William Kristol and Robert Kagan both of the warmongering Foreign Policy Initiative .
It should be noted that the Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI) is, for all intents and purposes, PNAC\’s latest incarnation and just recently featured an open letter to House Republicans calling on them to disregard the will of the American people and continue pursuing the war in Libya.
The FPI letter even suggests that the UN resolution authorizing the war in the first place, was holding America “hostage” and that it should be exceeded in order to do more to “help the Libyan opposition.” An untitled PNAC letter addressed to then US President George Bush regarding a general call for global warmongering received the seal of approval from Freedom Houses\’ Ellen Bork (2007), Ken Adelman (also former lobbyist for Thailand\’s Thaksin Shinawatra via Edelman ), and James Woolsey (formally), along with Neo-Con degenerates Richard Perle, William Kristol, Robert Kagan, and the always disingenuous demagogue Daniel Pipes. It is safe to say that neither NED nor Freedom House garners within its ranks characters appropriate for their alleged cause of “supporting freedom around the world.” It is also safe to say that the principles of “democracy,” “freedom,” and “human rights” they allegedly champion for, are merely being leveraged to co-opt well meaning people across the world to carry out their own self-serving agenda. Considering NED and Freedom House\’s role in fomenting the premeditated destabilization disingenuously titled the “spontaneous, indigenous” “Arab Spring,” and the true nature of those that constitute their boards of directors, we can examine the LA Times article regarding the recent raids for what it is ~ a white wash if not an outright lie.
Similarly, the US State Department comments made condemning the recent raids in Egypt take on a new, farcical, and very hypocritical tone in light of the documented fraud the US is carrying out through the State Department and the organizations it is on record funding.

The LA Times claims:
“Egyptian security forces on Thursday raided the offices of 17 nongovernmental organizations, including three U.S.-based agencies, as part of a crackdown on foreign assistance that has drawn criticism from the West and threatened human rights groups and pro-democracy movements. The move appeared to be part of a strategy to intimidate international organizations. The ruling military council has repeatedly blamed “foreign hands” for exploiting Egypt\’s political and economic turmoil. But activists said the army was using the ruse of foreign intervention to stoke nationalism and deflect criticism of abuses.”
The LA Times would go on to describe the US State Department\’s response:
“This action is inconsistent with the bilateral cooperation we have had over many years,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said at a news briefing after the raids. “We call on the Egyptian government to immediately end the harassment of NGO staff, return all property and resolve this issue immediately.” Egyptian soldiers and black-clad police officers swept into offices, interrogated workers and seized computers across the country. Those targeted included U.S. groups the National Democratic Institute, the International Republican Institute and Freedom House, which are funded by Congress to monitor elections and promote democracy overseas.”
Ironically, US-stooge Mohamed ElBaradei would chime in on the side of the US State Department claiming, “human rights organizations are the guardians of the nascent freedom. Efforts to suffocate them will be a major setback and will surely backfire.”
Freedom House director David Kramer, formally a State Department official under the Bush Administation, would claim the Egyptian army crackdown was “an intensive campaign by the Egyptian government to dismantle civil society through a politically motivated legal campaign aimed at preventing \’illegal foreign funding\’ of civil society operations in Egypt.”
Meanwhile NDI president Ken Wollack said “cracking down on organizations whose sole purpose is to support the democratic process during Egypt\’s historic transition sends a disturbing signal.” We see then, US and Egyptian organizations that are documented frauds acting in absolute concert not only with each other, but in tandem with both the US State Department and a willfully ignorant corporate-media.
These “NGOs” are the equivalent of Great Britain\’s imperial networks that spanned the globe, supplanted national sovereignty in nation after nation and executed the will of the crown, not that of the people they ruled over from Ireland to India, from Myanmar to the American colonies. CONCLUSION
Let us note and expose the perversion of ideals such as “representative governance” cheaply reduced to “democracy” or “mob rule,” and the obscene abuse of concepts such as “free speech” and “human rights” by organizations like NED and Freedom House who have themselves engineered conflicts that have resulted in genocide, state-sponsored terrorism, codified torture and indefinite detention as well as everything else that crawls out from beneath the rocks of Wall Street and London\’s brand of corporate-fascism and its willing servants in America\’s “Neo-Conservative” establishment and more recently Obama\’s supposedly “liberal” presidency.

And while Egypt has taken up the challenge to directly confront traitors and foreign-funded sedition within their own sovereign borders, as has Belarus recently , Egypt is by far not the only nation suffering under the debilitating division and destruction NED and its US State Department-funded subsidiaries sow throughout nations. Tunisia\’s new president had literally served the US agenda for decades via his Paris-based, NED-funded “NGO.” The destabilization that his NGO contributed to paved the way for his coming to power. Likewise, a list of nations are documented to be under similar attack. Myanmar : “Democracy icon” Aung San Suu Kyi\’s entire political apparatus is US and British funded. Thailand : Fraudulent NGOs like Prachatai, Thai Netizen, and many others are entirely funded by US State Department cash and are insidiously paving the way for Wall Street servant Thaksin Shinawatra to remove Thailand\’s traditional institutions and replace it with US-installed “civil society.” Russia : Moscow\’s streets have been choked week after week with protesters led by verified servants of the US State Department, funded for years by NED and whose foreign-funded NGOs constitute the entirety of accusations of “fraud” in Russia\’s recent elections. Malaysia : NED-funded “Bersih” protesters are attempting to sow division and instability to pave the way for IMF stooge Anwar Ibrahim to return to power and enter the people of Malaysia back under Anglo-American servitude.

Egypt and Belarus have given the world a model to follow.

Instead of striking out at throngs of protesters manipulated and used by these insidious organizations as the Egyptian military has been doing, they are now striking at the organizations and the foreign-funded traitors doing the manipulation in the first place.
By exposing and attacking Wall Street
and London\’s network of insidious agents directly,
may just very well fail ~
and not only fail but leave those behind it
naked in their megalomania and criminal intentions
for all the world to see.
And finally, while Egyptians, and indeed the world, must scrutinize NGOs claiming to promote “democracy,” “freedom,” and “human rights,” they must likewise scrutinize those whom these NGOs are attacking.
If the forces of “liberal activism” can be so completely hijacked, so can the forces of nationalism.
We must then identify the corporate-financier interests driving this obscene agenda, and not only boycott and entirely replace them , but in the meantime, monitor their interactions not only with these NGOs now confirmed to be frauds, but inroads they may be making in compromising the nationalist forccs they are attacking.
Eternal vigilance
is a price we must be willing to pay
if freedom is truly something we aspire for.

I forget where I found this awesome photograph. I snapped it up simply because it reminded me of just how insignificant we humans really are in the face of the larger picture. See that tiny little person down on the bottom there? Please enlarge!
I also take this moment to wish all of you the best possible year for you and yours. We can only make the best of what we still have and true happiness comes from knowing and striving to bring about change by righteous means. May you receive the blessings you deserve and find yourselves in a better position during this coming year.



I have taken the liberty of adding an old Alex Jones film to illustrate potential scenarios should these events in this article take place. And I do believe they will, because the American government as reported is hiring, staffing and stocking up its many many hundreds of FEMA camps at this time. Love him or hate him, Alex does do some good work worth taking note of. When he put out these films years ago he was accused of fear mongering. That, I am so sorry to say, should no longer be a case of fear-mongering but one of a view to the future. Reading the criticism in YouTube, mainly a few years ago, it would be interesting to see what the writers believe NOW!

By Keith Johnson

December 31, 2011
The United States is well on its way to becoming one giant third world country as insurmountable debt, depression level unemployment, and rising costs for basic necessities continue to crush the poor and middle class.
It is now no longer a question as to if or when the economy will collapse, but rather how soon the American people will realize that it is already upon them.
The Occupy Wall Street protests that have now spread to every major city in the nation is a good sign that some have finally begun to wake up. But many of them are still relying on the same government that created the problem to come up with a solution to it.
Meanwhile, elected politicians and their faithful lackeys in the mainstream media continue to peddle lies and disinformation to those still living in denial. Using mathematical and linguistic trickery, they strive to convince the na ve that the current financial crisis is only temporary, cyclical, and well on its way to making a full recovery.
Perhaps if the American people simply had the wherewithal to look over the shoulders of these talking heads, they might be surprised to learn that their government has already conceded that the end is nigh ~ and that behind the scenes ~ they have been bracing for the fallout of a large-scale economic breakdown for several years.
The most recent evidence of this came in late October, when the U.S. Army sponsored their annual Alternative Futures Symposium in Chantilly, Virginia. This three-day session was covered in great detail by trade publication National Defense. According to their report,
The seminar included 85 experts from academia, industry, civilian government agencies, U.S. and foreign militaries who concluded that the United States economy was on the verge of collapse, and that its burgeoning debt now took precedence as the most serious threat to national security.
Speaking on behalf of the U.S. military, Brig. Gen. Patrick J. Donahue II conceded that bloated military budgets would likely be a thing of the past, and that branches of the armed services would have to learn to cope with less. How are we going to come up with a military that [might be smaller but] is still effective? he asked. That is the big issue that the Army is facing.

Among the other participants was Robert A. Weidermeier, author of the best-selling book Aftershock: Protect Yourself and Profit in the next Global Financial Meltdown, who told the group that starting in 2013 and through 2015 is when we re going to see bad things.
What is notable about Weidermeier s prediction is that 2013 marks the 100-year anniversary of the Federal Reserve, whose liberal printing of paper currency has incrementally caused the dollar to lose more than 95% of its original purchasing power.
Weidermeier says that things have not yet spiraled out of control because interest rates have been kept low, but that even a 1 percent increase could inflate the debt by $150 billion per year. That s about the same as the entire budget for the Army, Weidermeier said. When you hit 10 percent, all bubbles burst.

Although that assessment is dire, it may be an underestimation of the true severity of the impending crisis. Weidermeier bases his calculations on the supposition that the U.S. debt is somewhere in the neighborhood of $15 trillion, when in reality it may be well over a hundred times that amount.
In August, economics professor Laurence J. Kotlikoff, who served as a senior economist on President Reagan s Council of Economic Advisers, told National Public Radio that the U.S. ignores unofficial payment obligations like Medicare and Social Security when computing the national debt.
If you add up all the promises that have been made for spending obligations, including defense expenditures, and you subtract all the taxes that we expect to collect, the difference is $211 trillion. That s the fiscal gap, says Kotlikoff. That s our true indebtedness.
Frank Finelli, managing director of The Carlyle Group, a global asset management firm, was another speaker at the symposium who warned that the Federal Reserve was largely responsible for the crisis, noting that the Fed s balance sheet had more than tripled since 2007 by $2.5 trillion.
Such tremendous increase in the money supply has not been accompanied by economic growth in the United States, said Finelli.
He went on to say that China would weather the financial crisis far better than the United States or Europe, and that its strength would not be exerted through missiles or submarines, but rather from its immense wealth. China does view financial power as an exercise of power in a way that the United States does not, says Finelli. The United States only exercises financial power through its corporations.
This most recent symposium was part of the U.S. Army s Unified Quest 2012 exercise, the latest in a series of annual war games that ~ in recent years ~ has focused on America s response to a global financial meltdown.
In November 2010, CNBC s Eamon Javers had this to say about last year s exercise: Ever since the crash of 2008, the defense intelligence establishment has really been paying a lot of attention to global markets and how they can serve as a threat to U.S. national security interests. .
Javers goes on to report,
The Army is having a very interesting yearlong exercise called Unified Quest 2011. In that war gaming series, the Army is looking at the implications of a large scale economic breakdown in the U.S. that would force the Army to keep domestic order amid civil unrest, and deal with global fragmented power and drastically lower budgets.
According to Javers, 30 military officials from the Marine Corps war colleges visited the trading floor of JP Morgan in October 2010 to study markets and the economy.
So you can see that all different parts of the Pentagon and defense intelligence establishment are looking at markets, and looking at ways they can present a new kind of threat to the United States.
These are the guys whose job it is to think of the very worst things that could possibly happen and they ve dreamed up some very scary scenarios here.
Inside Defense magazine also reported on Unified Quest 2011 in a November 2010 article entitled Army Officials Think Through the What-If s of a Global Economic Collapse, where it was revealed,
Officials picked the scenario of a worldwide economic collapse because it was deemed a plausible course of events given the current global security environment. In such a future, the United States would be broke, causing a domino effect that would push economies across the globe into chaos.
According to Army Lt. Col. Mark Elfendahl, these were some of the conclusions drawn during a three-day session connected to that exercise:
The Army would have to significantly alter its investment portfolio, focusing on light and inexpensive forces and that an increased focus on domestic activities might be a way of justifying whatever Army force structure the country can still afford.

In an almost light hearted manner, the article concludes by saying,
The only silver lining: The Army would have an influx of qualified recruits as the result of an unemployment rate between 25 percent and 30 percent.
Tracing the government s contingency plans back even further~ to 2008 ~ we find a prominent American newspaper and a foreign news agency both reporting on the Pentagon s plans to confront the repercussions of an economic meltdown in the not-so-distant future.
According to a Russia Today report from 2008:
Twenty thousand additional U.S. uniformed troops, set to be trained by 2011, are to help as a response to the threat of a possible mass terror attack or civil unrest following an economic collapse.
And from the Washington Post :
The U.S. military expects to have 20,000 uniformed troops inside the United States by 2011 trained to help state and local officials respond to a nuclear terrorist attack or other domestic catastrophe, according to Pentagon officials.
More recently, in a July 2011 article for the popular alternative news website The Intel Hub , Shepard Ambelas writes that the Pentagon s 2008 announcement dovetails
into the current troop and equipment movements around the country reported by truckers as well as many troop sightings by everyday citizens.
Ambelas goes on to write,
The military is already taking an active role in numerous domestic policing activities in close to a dozen states including Florida, Tennessee, California, Alabama and Pennsylvania.
It may be no mere coincidence that the recent announcement by President Obama to have all troops return from Iraq by the end of 2011 coincides with the anticipated economic collapse.

Will those troops now deployed on the streets of America?
An even more relevant question might be:
Will those troops exact the same toll on this nation as they did to the one they just left?

From Adolf Hitler: Mein Kampf (1944 edition)

Hitler, 1920s

Pages 356 – 357 Pal stina als Organisationzentrale

[ Written in Landsberg fortress prison, 1922-23 ]

DIE Unkenntnis der breiten Masse ber das innere Wesen des Juden, die instinktlose Borniertheit unserer oberen Schichten lassen das Volk leicht zum Opfer dieses j dischen L genfeldzuges werden. [. . .]

Man beginnt vor dem furchtbaren Feinde zu zittern und ist damit sein endg ltiges Opfer geworden.

k) Die Herrschaft des Juden im Staate erscheint schon so gesichert, da er sich jetzt nicht nur wieder als Jude bezeichnen darf, sondern auch seine v lkischen und politischen letzten Gedankeng nge r cksichtslos zugibt.

Ein Teil seiner Rasse bekennt sich schon ganz offen als fremdes Volk, nicht ohne dabei auch wieder zu l gen. Denn indem der Zionismus der anderen Welt weiszumachen versucht, da die v lkische Selbstbesinnung des Juden in der Schaffung eines pal stinensischen Staates seine Befriedigung f nde, bet lpeln die Juden abermals die dummen Gojim auf das gerissenste. Mein Kampf Sie denken gar nicht daran, in Pal stina einen j dischen Staat aufzubauen, um ihn etwa zu bewohnen, sondern sie w nschen nur eine mit eigenen Hoheitsrechten ausgestattete, dem Zugriff anderer Staaten entzogene Organisationszentrale ihrer internationalen Weltbegaunerei; einen Zufluchtsort berf hrter Lumpen und eine Hochschule werdender Gauner.

English translation:

THE ignorance of the broad masses about the inner nature of the Jew, the lack of instinct and narrow-mindedness of our upper classes, make the people an easy victim for this Jewish campaign of lies.

While from innate cowardice the upper classes turn away from a man whom the Jew attacks with lies and slander, the broad masses from stupidity or simplicity believe everything. The state authorities either cloak themselves in silence or, what usually happens, in order to put an end to the Jewish press campaign, they persecute the unjustly attacked, which, in the eyes of such an official ass, passes as the preservation of state authority and the safeguarding of law and order.

Slowly fear of the Marxist weapon of Jewry descends like a nightmare on the mind and soul of decent people.

They begin to tremble before the terrible enemy and thus have become his final victim.

The Jew\’s domination in the state seems so assured that now not only can he call himself a Jew again, but he ruthlessly admits his ultimate national and political designs. A section of his race openly owns itself to be a foreign people, yet even here they lie. For while the Zionists try to make the rest of the world believe that the national consciousness of the Jew finds its satisfaction in the creation of a Palestinian state, the Jews again slyly dupe the dumb Goyim. It doesn\’t even enter their heads to build up a Jewish state in Palestine for the purpose of living there; all they want is a central organization for their international world swindle, endowed with its own sovereign rights and removed from the intervention of other states: a haven for convicted scoundrels and a university for budding crooks.

Codex Alimentarius ~ Summarized- BILLC6 Petition

Codex Alimentarius (United Nations Food Code)

1) Started in 1962 by UN, Imposed by WTO Sanctions Codex Alimentarius was created in 1962 as a trade Commission by the UN to control the international trade of food. Its initial intentions may have been altruistic but it has been taken over by corporate interests, most notably the pharmaceutical, pesticide, biotechnology and chemical industries. Codex Alimentarius is backed up by the crippling trade sanctions of the World Trade Organization (WTO). Any non Codex-compliant nation would face huge economic punishment since they would automatically lose in any food-trade dispute with a Codex compliant country UN was created by the Rothschild Rockefeller Banking Cartel. They own most of the world\’s media and are the ones behind the current economic collapse. 2) Nutrients are Toxins Is Junk Science Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) has two committees which impact nutrition. One of them, the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU), is chaired by Dr. Rolf Grossklaus, a physician who believes that nutrition has no role in health. This is the top-guy for Codex nutritional policy, and he has stated:

nutrition is not relevant to health .

As unbelievable as it may sound, Dr. Grossklaus actually declared nutrients to be toxins in 1994 and instituted the use of toxicology (Risk Assessment) to prevent nutrients from having any impact on humans who take supplements! It is worth mentioning that Dr. Grossklaus happens to own the Risk Assessment company advising CCNFSDU and Codex on this issue. This company makes money when its toxicology services are used for the assessment of nutrients. Here in the U.S. we call that a conflict of interest .

Dr. Rolf Grossklaus, a physician who believes that nutrition has no role in health. Judging by his expression, it looks as if he has never bitten into a juicy fresh organic apple!

Codex is made up of thousands of standards and guidelines. One of them, the Vitamin and Mineral Guideline (VMG), is designed to permit only ultra low doses of vitamins and minerals (and make clinically effective nutrients illegal). How can the VMG restrict dosages of vitamins and minerals? By using Risk Assessment (toxicology) to assess nutrients. While Risk Assessment is a legitimate science (it is a branch of toxicology), it is the wrong science for assessing nutrients! In fact, in this context, it is actually junk science. Biochemistry, the science of life processes, is the correct science for assessing nutrients. Codex Alimentarius treats nutrients as toxins, which is literally insane.

Nutrients are not toxins ~ they are essential for life.

No matter what Codex Alimentarius officials say to convince you that Risk Assessment is a science-based approach to nutrients, it is not. And it is worth repeating that Dr. Grossklaus, the head of Codex Alimentarius, owns the Risk Assessment company advising CCNFSDU and Codex on the benefit of using Risk Assessment to assess nutrients. 3) Not Consumer Protection – That s Propaganda Contrary to the propaganda, Codex Alimentarius has nothing to do with consumer protection. Nothing! Codex is about the economic ambitions of multi-national corporations, in particular, the pharmaceutical industry. Using their multi billion-dollar marketing budgets, these industries have launched a massive media propaganda campaign to paint Codex Alimentarius as a benevolent tool of consumer protection , as well as to negatively taint the image of natural health options and mislead people to fear them as dangerous , so they will take drugs (which really are dangerous). Natural health products and options have an amazing safety record and are remarkably effective, especially when compared to pharmaceutical drugs. Unfortunately, one-time defenders of health freedom such as National Nutritional Foods Association (NNFA) and Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) have joined the propaganda bandwagon and are spreading false information saying that Codex Alimentarius is either harmless or benevolent consumer protection . Neither is true. The membership of these one-time defenders of health freedom has become permeated by people from the pharmaceutical industry (for example, CRN counts as its members corporations such as Monsanto and Bayer ). 4) Codex: Serious Threat to Health and Health Freedom If Codex Alimentarius is implemented in the United States of America, therapeutic dosages of vitamins and minerals (and all other nutrients soon to follow) will become unavailable because they will literally become illegal. Here s how it would work, in a nut-shell: Due to the junk science use of Risk Assessment (toxicology) to assess supposedly toxic nutrients, a false belief is being engineered saying that nutritional supplements are dangerous to people s health . Using this false belief generates calls to protect people from these toxic nutrients. After the calls come the bills to set ultra low permissible dosages (remember, nutrients are deemed dangerous toxins under this false belief). If enough of us and our Congressional delegates buy this nonsense, we and Congress would blindly comply with Codex Alimentarius VMG. And blind compliance is what the industries behind Codex Alimentarius intend. Blind compliance goes hand-in-hand with lack of activism. This lack of activism allows our protective laws, classifying nutrients as foods with no upper limits (such as DSHEA), to be easily repealed and replaced with draconian laws to classify nutrients as toxins. And harmonization with the pro-illness, pro-pharmaceutical industry Vitamin and Mineral Guideline is there to fill the void. Only intentionally ineffective, ultra low dose supplements would be legal, with or without a prescription, on the VMG list. If enough people do not take action, we can expect to watch nutritional supplement manufacturers and, thus health food stores, to go out of business, in a domino effect. The only player left standing would be Big Pharma. Therapeutic grade vitamins, minerals, and amino acids would be eliminated from the marketplace (although a few low-dose supplements would be allowed by Codex, as a symbolic measure to avoid suspicion about their ulterior motive). Natural health professionals would lose the tools of their trade (nutritional supplements) and health conscious people would be unable to choose natural health options for health promotion and disease treatment. Make no mistake, Obama has Bill HR 875 going through congress ~ If passed into law it would outlaw organic farming. Make no mistake, Obama has Bill HR 875 going through congress- If passed into law it would outlaw organic farming.


And that is, in a nutshell, how Codex Alimentarius is poised to make Natural and Nutritional Medicine (NNM) disappear from the legal health world and go underground. Who benefits? Big Pharma. It would take a few years for the above scenarios to be feasible (Codex Alimentarius is meant to go into full global effect by 2010). The slower the process takes, the less alarmed people will be. That s probably the logic of the architects of Codex Alimentarius. 5) Serves Economic Interests of Sickness Industries Through WTO and Napoleonic Code More and more people are turning to natural health products globally. The wellness trend is a major trend in today s society. The more natural health products people use, the fewer drugs they buy. The pharmaceutical industry, which is part of the Sickness Industry , fears the inevitable shift toward natural health care. Instead of accepting the will of the people and rethinking the future of the pharmaceutical industry, the industry has decided upon an unethical course of action: the use of deception and deceit to eliminate natural health products completely. Codex Alimentarius is a shrewd vehicle for protecting the pharmaceutical industry from the loss of income it stands to suffer due to the inevitable growth of natural healthcare. Codex Alimentarius is the resistance of the dinosaurs to inevitability: the burgeoning desire of humanity for a healthier, saner, and more sustainable way of life. The World Trade Organization (WTO) intends to force Codex Alimentarius upon the nations of the world, including the U.S. This would be done under the threat of massive economic sanctions if WTO-countries do not comply with Codex Alimentarius. Furthermore, Codex is based in the Napoleonic Code, not Common Law. That means that under Codex Alimentarius, anything not explicitly permitted is forbidden. Under Common Law, we hold that anything not explicitly forbidden is permitted. The difference is the difference between health freedom and health tyranny. Codex Alimentarius would be able to ban supplements by default. ~ Dr. Rima Laibow MD

PLEASE WATCH DR. RIMA LAIBOW SPEAKING ON THIS TOPIC. IT IS WELL WORTH YOUR TIME. AND IT IS WELL WORTH MAKING THIS SERIES GO VIRAL. CODEX ALIMENTARIUS PART 1 CODEX ALIMENTARIUS PART 2 CODEX ALIMENTARIUS PART 3 CODEX ALIMENTARIUS PART 4 CODEX ALIMENTARIUS PART 5, the website of the Natural Solutions Foundation, is beholden to no one: our only interest is health freedom. Rima E. Laibow, MD, successful natural medicine physician since the 1970s, has studied 16,000 pages of Codex documentation. Her conclusion is that people who say that Codex is consumer protection , voluntary , or harmless are, at best, seriously mistaken. Hello Fellow Canadians, The Canadian government is currently fast-tracking Bill C-6 which threatens to strip you of your rights to access a wide range of natural health products. If it passes, and you buy/sell/share/collect/dry/eat/feed to your family any of the restricted things, you become a criminal subject to great fines. Please take action to protect your current right to use the foods, herbs, supplements, and therapies the Conservative government is trying to outlaw. Here is a link to a petition against Bill C-6.

Thank you, (Please forward this to your friends)


The Canadian government, afraid of the public reaction once people find out what they are trying to pull, is currently fast-tracking this Bill which threatens to strip you of your rights to access a wide range of natural health products. If it passes, and you buy/sell/share/collect/dry/eat/feed to your family any of the restricted stuff, you become a criminal subject to fines 1000X bigger than those currently in effect. Please take action to protect your current right to use the foods, herbs, supplements, and therapies: 1. visit: and read Bill C-52 & C-6 and/or the analysis to form your own opinion about whether this law is good for you or for your country 2. sign the above petition and pass the word to your friends, family, anyone who cares. It is important to put your name. If you leave it blank, it won\’t count in the end. 3. write paper letters, phone, email your MP 4. The government is putting out misleading information that this Bill is OK, that it has none of the nasties that the opponents are claiming. Let\’s take it as a sign that the pressure of opposition is having an effect, and rather than backing down, let\’s keep the pressure steady. (NaturalNews) A new law being pushed in Canada by Big Pharma seeks to outlaw up to 60 percent or more of natural health products currently sold in Canada, even while criminalizing parents who give herbs or supplements to their children. The law, known as C-6 & C-52, replaced C-51 that was introduced by the Canadian Minister of Health on April 8th, 2008, and it proposes sweeping changes to Canada\’s Food and Drugs Act that could have devastating consequences on the health products industry. The bill died because of an election. Among the changes proposed by the bill are radical alterations to key terminology, including replacing the word “drug” with “therapeutic product” throughout the Act, thereby giving the Canadian government broad-reaching powers to regulate the sale of all herbs, vitamins, supplements and other items. With this single language change, anything that is “therapeutic” automatically falls under the Food and Drug Act. This would include bottled water, blueberries, dandelion greens and essentially all plant-derived substances. The Act also changes the definition of the word “sell” to include anyone who gives such therapeutic products to someone else. So a mother giving an herb to her child, under the proposed new language, could be arrested for engaging in the sale of unregulated, unapproved “therapeutic substances.” Learn about more of these freedom-squashing changes to the law at website: New enforcement powers allow Canadian government to seize your home or business. At the same time that C-6 & C-52 is outlawing herbs, supplements and vitamins, it would grant alarming new “enforcement” powers to the (thugs) enforcement agents who claim to be “protecting” the public from dangerous unapproved “therapeutic agents” like, say, dandelion greens. As explained on the website ((…), the C-52 C-6 law would allow the Canadian government\’s thugs enforcement agents to: * Raid your home or business without a warrant * Seize your bank accounts * Levy fines up to $5 million and a jail terms up to 2 years for merely selling an herb * Confiscate your property, then charge you storage fees for the expense involved in storing all the products they stole from you C-52 & C-6 would even criminalize the simple drying of herbs in your kitchen to be used in an herbal product, by the way. That would now be categorized as a “controlled activity,” and anyone caught engaging in such “controlled activities” would be arrested, fined and potentially jailed. Other “controlled activities” include labeling bottles, harvesting plants on a farm, collecting herbs from your back yard, or even testing herbal products on yourself! (Yes, virtually every activity involving herbs or supplements would be criminalized…) There\’s more, too. C-52 & C-6 is the Canadian government\’s “final solution” for the health products industry. It\’s a desperate effort to destroy this industry that\’s threatening the profits and viability of conventional medicine. Natural medicine works so well ~ and is becoming so widely used ~ that both the Canadian and American governments have decided to “nuke” the industries by passing new laws that effectively criminalize anyone selling such products. They simply cannot tolerate allowing consumers to have continued access to natural products. To do so will ultimately spell the destruction of Big Pharma and the outdated, corrupt and criminally-operated pharmaceutical industry that these criminally-operated governments are trying to protect

Trump s Got A Cabinet Of Bankers, War Criminals & Elites , So Will He Drain The Zio-Swamp? Or Will The Zio-Swamp Drain Him?

by Jonathan Azaziah

Donald Trump is a phenomenon. Love him or hate him, support him or oppose him, that s truly the best word to describe him as well as his rise to power. Many in the Resistance Camp and alternative media threw their tacit weight behind the newly inaugurated 45th President of the United Snakes of IsraHELL to counter the warmongering, neocon-backed, bloodthirsty, demented Wicked Witch of the Swamp Zio-Killary Clinton who all but guaranteed WW3 if she made it to the White House. Trump s condemnation of the regime change wars in Libya and Syria, seeming desire for friendship with Russia and his opposition to the Jewish-enforced political correctness discourse were breaths of fresh air and stark contrasts to the blatantly stated War Machine agenda of his opponent.

The Zionist media declared war on The Donald, as did political heavyweights on both the Republican and Democrat sides of the aisle. So did Wall Street. At just about every rally, Trump told his partisans that together, they would drain the swamp a reference to the corruption that has run rampant in Washington. But this is not one of Trump s reality TV shows, this is just reality and the very fate of humanity hangs in the balance. And looking around at the most important portfolios in the new Imperialist-In-Chief s cabinet, what we see is nothing but stalwarts of the swamp some of its most bloodthirsty alligators even. Without any embellishment, what lies (in more ways than one) before us is profoundly disturbing and a vast departure from Trump s campaign message.

The Defense Department was given to General James Mad Dog Mattis. Many Anti-Zionist analysts have been quick to point out that he said that he sees Israel turning into an apartheid state and that the US pays a price for its support of the cancerous tumor. Both statements are relatively toothless and considering Mad Dog s ACTIONS, they don t hold don t the weight of a paperclip. Indeed, what these aforementioned analysts fail to mention is that Mattis is a war criminal. As the commander of the 1st Marine Division, he was a key leader in the sacking of Baghdad and paved the way for the Judeo-NATO dismantlement and subsequent takeover of the Iraqi state. Mad Dog has the blood of tens of thousands (if not hundreds of thousands) of Iraqis on his hands, with his most notorious crime being the Mukaradeeb Wedding Party Massacre of May 2004. Moreover, he s a frothing-at-the-mouth hawk on Iran, having once described the Islamic Republic as the single most enduring threat to stability and peace in our region, and despite his weak criticisms against the illegitimate Israeli regime, Israel Firsters have taken just about no issue with him. JINSA and the Republic Jewish Coalition even went out of their way to defend his record his record of killing Goyim on behalf of World Zionism, that is.

At Homeland Security, the man now in charge is General John Kelly, another war criminal. His record includes butchering civilians on three tours in Iraq and running the torture facility at Guantanamo Bay. He s also an anti-Iran hawk and an anti-Hizbullah fanatic, accusing the Islamic Republic of spreading radical ideology in Latin America and the Lebanese Islamic Resistance of maintaining a drug-running network that runs through Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Panama. Kelly s wants greater American involvement in Latin American affairs under the pretext of combating Iranian influence . Factoring in these highly Zionized, tremendously dangerous views, and since he s going to be the one overseeing Trump s border wall with Mexico, it is of the utmost likelihood that Kelly s going to give a contract to operate on the American-Mexican border to Magal Security Systems, an Israeli security firm which has been making overtures towards Trump since he defeated Clinton. Magal s achievements include building the hafrada (separation from non-Jews) wall in the occupied West Bank and Al-Quds, keeping Gaza besieged, contributing to settlement infrastructure across Palestine and utilizing the methodology of neo-colonialism to infiltrate Mexico s government, police, prisons, banks, ports, power plants, military and municipalities.

Standing in as the new National Security Advisor is Lieutenant General and former DIA director Michael Flynn, a man who attempted to portray himself in the run-up to Trump s win as a bit of an isolationist, taking the stance of the new president vis-a-vis Russia and Syria and saying that the US should work with the two states to rollback ISIS. Digging deeper into his record however and we find that Flynn is a rabid Islamophobe, making statements that mirror the kind of trash that you find in the writings of Pamela Geller, a hawk on Iran like the rest of his colleagues, and a certified war criminal with his role as JSOC s director of intelligence in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Yes, Flynn ran with (and led) the American regime s premier death squad. So much for non-interventionism . His belligerence towards Iran is already on full display, declaring that Iran is on notice after the Islamic Republic s perfectly legal ballistic missile test in Tehran and Yemen s Ansarullah which Flynn falsely accused of being backed and trained by the Iranian nation; even alternative media shills like Gareth Porter have deconstructed and demolished this hasbara took down a Saudi warship shelling Yemeni civilians in Hudaydah.

Trump s cyber security advisor is none other than Rudy Giuliani, torture enthusiast, supporter of hydra-surveillance and servile maggot long in the pay of World Jewry. He served as the token Gentile (more like Shabbos Goy) operator in the Judaic scheme to knock down the Twin Towers. Giuliani oversaw FEMA s Operation Code Angel war game and met with Ehud Olmert the very night before the 9/11 false flag to confirm that everything was copacetic. Giuliani is also a shill of Iranian pseudo-Marxist terrorist group the MEK and has spent years doing the usurping Zionist entity s bidding, from pushing NATO to accept Israeli membership to upping aid to the tumor and everything vomit-inducing in between.

What s happening at the Department of Treasury doesn t even require the most rudimentary analytical prowess. Steven Mnuchin, a Soros Fund Management LLC and Goldman Sachs Jew with a net-worth of something like half a billion dollars (on the books, that is), is running it. He s also a personal friend of Trump. Gary Cohn, Trump s top economic adviser, is another Goldman Sachs Jew who served as COO and president of the parasitic banking firm. Carl Icahn, gazillionaire Jew who s been at the head of more Fortune 500 companies than anyone of sound mind can keep up with, is inside the administration as Trump s special advisor on regulatory reform, which means he ll be in the Imperialist-In-Chief s ear whispering sweet nothings about letting criminal Jewish globe holders continue to be criminal Jewish globe holders with ZERO oversight.

And perhaps even more disturbing than Icahn s positioning is that despite Trump s repeated statements on the campaign trail of cleaning out Obama s administration, he s keeping on Adam Szubin as the Treasury Department s Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial intelligence. The Jewish-Zionist Szubin, like his Jewish-Zionist predecessors David Cohen and Stuart, is the sanctions czar and under Obama, he was particularly aggressive in implementing crippling and cruel measures against Iran, Syria, Venezuela and Russia.

Rick Perry, the new Energy Secretary, needs no introduction. The man has been kissing the rings of the Jewish Lobby and Big Oil for as long as he s been in public office. A Christian Zionist fanatic of the highest order, he once told a New York Times Magazine writer that, I m more Jewish than you think I am. Considering his bigoted, backwards and baneful ideology as well as his financial ties to a who s-who of Satan s Squadron, look for Perry to help the Israeli entity expand its oil-drilling op in the Golan Heights via the likes of Genie Energy Ltd., a front for Rothschild interests. Meanwhile, in the Department of Agriculture, the new head, Sonny Perdue, is a wholly owned stooge of Monsanto and the GMO industry. Perdue s credentials include a Governor of the Year award from the Biotechnology Innovation Organization, a group known to shill for every GMO giant one can think of, when he ran the state of Georgia.

Over in the Justice Department, Jeff Sessions is on tap for Attorney General. As an Alabama Senator, there wasn t an AIPAC line he didn t tow and he received the Yedid L Yisrael (friend of Israel ) award from the B nai B rith-linked Mobile Area Jewish Federation. The reason why this is significant is because if the Jewish Power Matrix decides to pull off any false flags and its operatives get picked up like in the aftermath of Mossad s masterpiece attack on September 11th, 2001, then the Yedid L Yisrael Sessions will have no problem pulling a Chertoff and sending the Zio-terrorists back to Tel Aviv .

Trump s most ominous cabinet selection definitely goes to former ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson. While the alternative media analysts wasted their time commenting on the oil baron s ties to Russia, as if these ties were political and not strictly financial and as if there was some sort of a burgeoning bromance between Putin and Trump, what they failed to report and comment on was Tillerson s devilish agenda against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. Ever since Chavistas seized Exxon s facilities in 2007, Tillerson s been on a rampage campaigning across the globe for harsher sanctions and regime change in Caracas.

And in 2015, Tillerson came a spider-hair away from starting a war between Venezuela and Guyana over an oil-rich territory called Essequibo. ExxonMobil, under Tillerson s guidance, claimed it discovered oil in the strip of land and was going to work with the Guyanese government to extract the resources. The Bolivarian Revolution responded with ferocity, mobilizing its armed forces to the border and Nicolas Maduro stated in no uncertain terms, There is a brutal campaign against Venezuela, financed by ExxonMobil. It s a campaign to corner Venezuela, to lead it to high-intensity conflict [with Guyana], to undermine the policy of peace that we have implemented. Cooler heads prevailed and a war was avoided. But with the full might of the US military, NED, CIA, USAID and other institutions at his disposal, what lengths will Tillerson go to as a means of achieving his goal of destroying what Hugo Chavez built?

More worrisome personalities are neocon Mike Pompeo, who is set to head the CIA; new ambassador to The Cancer, Jewish settler David Friedman, who has served as Trump s attorney for years; Jason Greenblatt, the Trump Organization s top legal officer, whose task is going to be building relations up with Cuba (read: infiltrating) and overseeing negotiations between Israel and the collaborationist Palestinian Authority (read: keeping the peace process sham going so the usurping Jewish malignant growth keeps building settlements); Stephen Miller, another Zionist Jew, who will serve as Trump s senior policy advisor; Avraham Berkowitz, a Jew with deep familial ties to AIPAC, who will be a special assistant to Trump; Boris Epshteyn, an investment banker and finance attorney who will be another special assistant to the president as well as assistant communications director for surrogate operations; and Reed Cordish, Trump s new assistant for intragovernmental and technology initiatives (read: Mossad hacking and infiltrating the American security/military/technological establishment). Cordish is from the Cordish dynasty which controls real estate and entertainment mega-firm Cordish Companies. His father, another personal friend of Trump s, sits on AIPAC s board. Both Berkowitz and Cordish are good friends with Trump s demonic son-in-law, Jared Kushner, the most dangerous creature of the bunch.

Many have brushed off Jared Kushner s power and influence over Trump. This is, categorically, a mistake. This Yahoudling is not some kind of a pushover. He s from a globe-holding family that is active in as many Judaic evils one can think of: real estate, media, investments, construction of criminal colonies in Palestine, B nai B rith (Jewish Freemasonry) funding, yeshiva building and even Holofraud propaganda dissemination the Kushners are founders of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. He put Ivanka, Trump s beloved daughter, through a rigorous conversion to Orthodox Judaism and is, according to just about every Jewish communal and Israeli media outlet, responsible for shaping Trump s views on the geopolitics of the Arab-Islamic world, including the preservation of Israel and the need for an almost-biblical confrontation with the Islamic Republic of Iran. That he is now operating as Trump s closest advisor is not merely cause for concern but five-alarm-blaze-style screaming. Make no mistake, if Trump does not go along with the agenda that has undoubtedly already been laid out before him by this Zio-cabinet of bankers, war criminals and elites of all sorts, it will be Kushner who facilitates his elimination, either physically or politically.

And speaking of Trump himself, what of the man? Is he an independent billionaire who made his fortune the good ol fashioned American-Capitalist way, i.e. screwing as many people on the bottom as you can to get to the top? Or is he someone who was positioned into power by the most domineering superstructure that history has ever seen, i.e. Organized Jewry? As the legendary Michael Collins Piper once wrote, The story of the colorful businessman (and now television star) called The Donald is one that demonstrates how non-Jewish individuals and financial interests can rise to great heights through the sponsorship of Jewish interests. Trump was groomed for the spotlight and mentored by none other than Roy Cohn, the immensely influential bulldog lawyer known for his role as Senator Joseph McCarthy s right hand. Cohn, a homosexual Jew with ties to Jewish organized crime, taught Trump how to manipulate the press by using the good and the bad to his strategic advantage and remained a close personal friend of Trump s, speaking to him 5+ times a day until the day of his death in 1986. Cohn, using his ties to the mafia and International Jewry, guided Trump into his first major acquisition, Resorts International, a front company for Rothschild interests, the CIA and the Mossad. Trump of course would liquidate his interests in the company, but his ties to World Zionism didn t end there, not by a long shot.

Following several bouts with bankruptcy, Trump rebuilt his brand and he did it with the help of some of International Jewry s heaviest hitters, including George Soros, who poured $160 million into the Trump International Hotel and Tower project in Chicago. Makes one wonder, doesn t it? Is Soros really opposing his former business partner now? Or is it all Judaic wink-and-noddery? Trump s next step was breaking ground into television and it was Jewish media devil Jeff Zucker who happily obliged, setting Trump up with The Apprentice . Zucker was an NBC bigwig at the time and eventually moved over to CNN, where he gave Trump his next big break unprecedented coverage for his campaign, mostly negative. Chabadnik Jew Rupert Murdoch s Fox News followed suit, only mostly positive. The entirety of the Zionist media covered Trump-mania day in and day out, whether it was obscene or decent, and The Donald milked it for all that it was worth. CBS chairman and Jewish-Zionist royal Leslie Moonves put it best, It [Trump s meteoric rise] may not be good for America, but it s damn good for CBS. In other words, it s good for the Jews and bad for the Goyim .

Title of biggest media backer of Trump though indubitably goes to Breitbart, the central platform of the so-called alt-right a misnomer if there ever was one. Breitbart isn t the alternative to anything, nor is it right in any sense of the word. It s Jewish, from top to bottom. Steve Bannon who Jared Kushner calls an incredible Zionist has just been the Goy front man. It was founded by Jews, degenerate drug addict Andrew Breitbart and his partner Larry Solov. In the Jewish supremacist entity putrefying Palestine, in 2007 on an Al-Quds settlement no less. It s staffed predominantly by Jews. Its hateful language is Jewish. Its agenda, which reeks of anti-Islam hatred and Neo-Imperialism, is Jewish.

And its support of Trump is too centered around the fact that Trump will be good for the Jews. Breitbart is using the lingo of anti-globalism to corrupt and divide the Truth Movement through the implantation of Islamophobia and pro- Israel sentiment. And considering how many so-called activists of the so-called alt-right parrot long-debunked myths about Islam concocted by the Jews that they read in regurgitated, repackaged form at the filth factory known as Breitbart, it unfortunately seems to be working. Trump parroted Breibart and Breitbart parroted Trump as if they were made for each other. Keeping all of this mind, we return to a statement made in our opening paragraph: The Zionist media declared war on The Donald . But did it? Did it really? Or was this just more of the same Problem-Reaction-Solution, Jews-Running-Both-Sides-Of-The-Divide sideshow that has always been present in the American election cycle?

Trump has given funds to Chabad, the Israeli Emergency Rescue, the illegal Beit El settlement in the occupied West Bank, the American Jewish Committee, Friends of IOF, the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous and the Museum of Jewish History. He has financial interests in several Zionist-aligned GCC states. His daughter Ivanka is married to the aforementioned hellspawn Jared Kushner and while some astute commentators have pointed out that the Israeli rabbinate has thrown Ivanka s conversion out, they ve failed to mention that she s been accepted by Chabad, the most powerful and influential Jewish sect in the world, and she despicably paid a visit just recently to the grave of genocidal hatemonger Lubavitcher rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson, Trump s oldest sons are with Jews and his other daughter, Tiffany Trump, is dating a Jew too Jonathan Mechanic, son of a wealthy Jewish real estate clan. Even Trump s father, Fred, saw his accumulation of wealth assisted by three Jews Abraham Bunny Lindenbaum, Abe Beam and Manfred Ohrenstein. It s not rocket science here. Jews run New York. If you want to make it in the Big Apple, licking the boots of the Yahoudlings is a must. And the Trump family, from soup to nuts, past and present, old and young, is beholden in one form or another to the Jewish Power Matrix.

Yet, in spite of this massive compilation of frightening information, the Jewish communal press and Israeli media still rip into Trump daily and there are Jews across the spectrum, like Sarah We Killed Jesus and I d F***ing Do it Again Silverman and Chuck Schumer, vociferously advocating Trump s overthrow and/or assassination. Why? The answer is simple and crude: The Jews are going to bitch no matter what. Clinton, Bush and Obama gave Organized Jewish Interests everything they wanted on a kosher silver platter and still they whined and moaned, screamed and gnashed their teeth for more. When you abide by an ideology that makes you chosen and everyone else cattle , arrogance, lust and greed become as biological as blood pumping through your veins.

The Monsters are keeping Trump on his toes. If his compliance, on Venezuela, Iran, Russia, Syria, China, Hizbullah, Yemen or any other front, is not up to snuff, The Monsters will then up the ante from media bashing and the early stages of a color revolution to full-blown JFK Status. But with Trump s cabinet of reptiles and long family history of working with Jews, befriending Jews and pleasing Jews, this just doesn t come off as a viability, despite all previously held notions. The question for Anti-Parasites the world over is this: If such info was presented about any other individual from any other family and in any other circumstances, would there be any hesitation in declaring Trump an enemy of humanity like every last one of his Judaic-owned predecessors? To once again quote the late, great Michael Collins Piper, America is the engine in the Rothschild-led Jewish Imperium. And the US is indeed an empire, not a democracy. Thus, does anyone actually believe that The Zionist Dragon, this trans-generational guild of chosenite conspirators, would simply give up its hold over the aforesaid engine which gives power to its global machine and transfer it to Trump without getting anything in return? Anything at all? If yes is your response, you re either naive or brainless.

So allow us to conclude with one more (two-pronged) inquiry: Will Donald J. Trump drain the Zio-swamp? Or Will The Zio-swamp drain Donald J. Trump? If the opening days of the Oompa Loompa President s reign are any indication, from the attacks on Yemen to the transfer of heavy vehicles to Syrian opposition forces, the new aggression against the people of Eastern Ukraine (Donbass) to the fresh sanctions on Iran, the bellicosity towards China to the propaganda against Russia over the liberation of Crimea at the UN, it should be rather clear. Whether Trump is Hope and Change 2.0 with a populist/nationalist twist remains to be seen. Only time will tell, obviously. But the six-pointed-star-stamped evidence presented herein speaks volumes. And as much optimism as there might ve been, it s simply too damn loud to be drowned out any longer by Trump s usual amusing soundbites.
