Money-laundering probe targets Republican “godfather” Sheldon Adelson

This just in from my recent radio guest Gene “Chip” Tatum! (Literally seconds ago…)  Sheldon Adelson, the ultra-Zionist “Las Vegas godfather” who owns the Republican Party and wants to nuke Iran, is the target of a federal money laundering probe. A key witness, Curtis Pope, is afraid for his life. You read it here first!  -KB

Plight of a Strawman – The Adelson Secret Grand Jury

by Gene “Chip” Tatum, WikiArmy.com

Last year, while I was still in Miami Federal Prison serving 9 months for leaving the country without the courts permission, I was housed next to a very interesting fellow. His name was Curtis. Looking at him, you would have never known who he was, or what he had been involved in. Curtis was attending GED classes during the day in prison. You see, he had never finished high school.

Being neighbors, we would sit and talk in our free time. In prison there is a code. You share your papers. Meaning your document, which shows what you were charged with. A person who claims they have no papers usually indicates they are hiding something,whether it be snitching, pedophile, or other undesirable charges. Well, Curtis and I shared our documents. Mine were not so impressive. It was a simple violation of federal probation by leaving the area. But his papers …now they surprised me.  Looking at him, you would have never guessed who he was or what he had been charged with!  It seems that Curtis was a star!  Well, so to speak. He was charged with laundering 326 million dollars.  That’s right, 326 MILLION!  He was associated with Full Tilt Poker, Poker Stars, Intabill, Check Cashing and several other enterprises that were run through Vegas, fronting for what I would later find out was Adelson’s off the top shelf businesses. I was shocked when I saw the indictment!

We remained neighbors, and usually sat and talked when he wasn’t in GED classes. After spending time with him and hearing of the good life provided by his partners, flying him around the country in private jets, housing him in the best suites in the country and overseas, I realized that someone was using Curtis’s naive nature against him. They enlisted him as their Straw Man or Front Man.

Curtis laid out for me the ventures and each of the partners parts in the enterprises. He was comfortable now, as he was soon to be released from federal prison to go to a half-way house in Tampa, and then home to serve a term of federal supervised release (that’s the feds fancy name for probation).  About two weeks before he was to be released, he came to me with tears running down his face. He had no words, just a paper which he handed to me. His attorney had written and advised him that the FBI out of Las Vegas had an Information filed against him for Money Laundering. Now an Information is a document used as the first step in gaining a Grand Jury indictment. The FBI files the Information and the US Attorney takes it to the Grand Jury for the Indictment, which in 98% of the cases is granted. After all, the Grand Jury assumes that if the FBI and U.S. Attorneys office says someone is a bad guy, well then they probably are.

Curtis was told that he is facing a minimum of 25 more years in prison. The attorney further stated that there is the opportunity to avoid prosecution, if you turn federal witness against your former partner.  Curtis wanted my advice. A Secret Grand Jury was to be put in place to investigate his former partner. Well, Curtis Pope is not a healthy man. He lost a portion of his foot to Diabetes, has heart problems and other health issues. Twenty five additional years in a Federal Prison with the lack of healthcare provided was a death warrant. I normally would not advocate testifying for the Feds, but in this case, I did so without explanation.

“NO!”, he said. “I can’t. You don’t understand. The man I told you about and explained his place with us is too important”. “Curtis”, I started… “No!”, he stopped me. “You don’t understand. He will kill me”.

Now, he didn’t know my background, and I questioned his ability to think this out. “Curtis, no one is going to hurt you.”, I began. “You will have protection from the government (as much as it is), and they will not let anything happen to you.”. “No Gene”, he retorted. “He will kill me, my wife, my family, everyone.”. “Damn Curtis”, I said. “Who do you think it is? Bush!”. He looked at me quizzically. “No Gene. It is Sheldon Adelson!  They want me to testify in a secret Grand Jury against Sheldon Adelson”!

DAMN, I thought! (I don’t think I said it out loud).

Days passed and we discussed many options. Finally we had both come to the conclusion that if he had to spend much more time in prison, he would die.

So we decided that when the time came and he was headed to Nevada to testify, I would start publishing information on the internet to heighten awareness of his decision, and to alert the masses that if anything happened to him or his family, Sheldon Adelson was behind it.

Little did I know that I would end up in such a wonderful position to help my unsuspecting friend.

Thanks, Alt Media! Please help get the word out!

RIP Whistle-Blower Michael Ruppert

By Gary G. Kohls, MD (quoting Sander Hicks at length)

A couple of years ago I was the only person in Duluth’s Zinema theater watching Michael Ruppert’s powerful feature-length documentary film “Collapse”. At the time, the Zinema was still early in its history and very few people even showed up to watch the afternoon video versions of DemocracyNow! that were being screened for free every week day.

(“Collapse” can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JeufX6S-Q_s, and is essential viewing and study for anybody who would like to have de-mystified the world’s dysfunctional politics, economics, corporations, etc,)

In “Collapse”, Ruppert powerfully articulated the basic themes of his best-selling book “Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil” (including the powerful video “The Truth and Lies About 9/11/01” available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQR2z4YCzDw).

The film powerfully asserted that there was an intimate connection between Peak Oil and the realities of 9/11/01. Ruppert’s indictment of the military/industrial/congressional complex at the time were unassailable, and those assertions have held up over the years and his predictions are right on target. “Collapse” affected me deeply, particularly when Ruppert, a hard-boiled ex-LAPD narcotics cop, broke down in tears ( at 61 minutes) over his concern about the future of the planet and his frustration about the lack of action by the criminally inactive and over-privileged powers-that-be in Congress, the White House, the Supreme Court, Wall Street, the Federal Reserve Board and every sociopathic multinational corporation you can think of, none of whom have the political will to do the right thing for humanity that could, if they weren’t so greedy and short-sighted, stop the poisoning, exploitation, starvation, militarization and over-population of the planet.

I have had the utmost respect for Ruppert’s investigative journalism, warnings and calls to action ever since I saw “Collapse”.

Ruppert’s courageous whistle-blowing career – which evolved into an equally courageous investigative journalism career – started in Los Angeles as a narcotics officer with the LAPD and ended shortly thereafter when he uncovered and reported CIA drug-running (with complicity from his own police department). Ever since he has been a hated target of the CIA, FBI, Wall Street, the 1% and most of the leaders of US political parties, including all Republicans and the vast majority of Democrats.

One of the most important attributes about Ruppert was that he saw through 9/11/01 before most other skeptics. Within a couple of months after 9/11, Ruppert published and spoke out publicly against the White House’s provably false 9/11 conspiracy theories (ie, the theory that two jet planes and the subsequent low-heat office fires [impossibly] melted scores of massive steel beams at multiple levels and simultaneously pulverized all the concrete and then, equally impossibly, caused the pan-caking, at free fall speeds, of three WTC towers 1, 2 and 7).

Ruppert was the publisher/editor of “From the Wilderness” (www.fromthewilderness.com), a newsletter that has been read in more than 50 countries. Its subscribers included 60-plus members of the US congress during the Bush era, professors at more than 40 universities and major business and economic leaders around the world.

Ruppert’s final radio show, the 4-13-14 edition of “The Lifeboat Hour”, was broadcast just hours before he killed himself with a handgun at a friend’s home in California, leaving behind a number of handwritten notes, including two suicide notes. Even though many whistleblowers of his stature have been victims of homicides that have been staged as suicides, friends have authenticated the notes as his. The last “lifeboat Hour” show can be heard at: http://www.maxkeiser.com/2014/04/mike-ruppert-rip/. His last utterance unaccountably promised that The Lifeboat Hour would be hosted by him in a week.

He chose the following song to be sung as part of the last Lifeboat Hour. I think it has a lot to say about the depth of his spiritual nature and perhaps his lack of hope for the future of humanity and a reason for his ending it all. The last verse goes: Calling all Angels, calling all Angels; We’re trying, we’re hoping, we’re hurting, we’re loving; We’re crying, we’re calling; ‘Cause we’re not sure how this goes.

“Calling All Angels”

– by Jane Siberry
Santa Maria, Santa Teresa, Santa Anna, Santa Susannah
Santa Cecilia, Santa Copelia, Santa Domenica, Mary Angelica
Frater Achad, Frater Pietro, Julianus, Petronilla
Santa, Santos, Miroslaw, Vladimir and all the rest

Oh, a man is placed upon the steps, a baby cries
High above, you can hear the church bells start to ring
And as the heaviness, oh the heaviness, the body settles in
Somewhere you could hear, a mother sing

Then it’s one foot then the other as you step out on the road
Step out on the road, how much weight, how much weight?
Then it’s how long and how far and how many times
Oh, before it’s too late?

Calling all Angels, calling all Angels
Walk me through this one, don’t leave me alone
Calling all Angels, calling all Angels
We’re trying, we’re hoping, but we’re not sure how

Oh, and every day you gaze upon the sunset
With such love and intensity
Why, it’s ah, it’s almost as if you could only crack the code
You’d finally understand what this all means

Oh, but if you could, do you think you would
Trade it all, all the pain and suffering?
Oh, but then you would’ve missed the beauty of
The light upon this earth and the sweetness of the leaving

Calling all Angels, calling all Angels
Walk me through this one, don’t leave me alone
Calling all Angels, calling all Angels
We’re trying, we’re hoping, but we’re not sure why

Calling all Angels, calling all Angels
Calling all Angels, calling all Angels
Walk me through this one, walk me through this one
Don’t leave me alone

Calling all Angels, calling all Angels
We’re trying, we’re hoping, we’re hurting, we’re loving
We’re crying, we’re calling
‘Cause we’re not sure how this goes

Michael Ruppert is as much a whistle-blowing American hero as was Tom Paine, Henry David Thoreau, Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain, Dorothy Day, the Berrigan brothers, Daniel Ellsberg, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Robert Kennedy, Paul Wellstone, Reverend Kevin Annett, Richard Gage, Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden, and his messages have been as ignored, feared and viciously attacked as the others. The mainstream media have pointedly – and disgracefully – failed to even report his death, not wanting to draw attention to his unwelcome truths.

Even though Ruppert feared that America’s and the planet’s collapse is inevitable, his urgent pleas deserve our attention now more than ever. Please take his message seriously before it’s too late – and challenge every corporation, every political candidate, every plutocrat and every clergyperson with that message.

Here is a eulogy from a friend of Michael Ruppert, Sander Hicks.

“Mike Ruppert was a friend of mine.

“He was an American prophet, a social critic, and a 9/11 truther. He had his enemies and he had his demons. He confronted the enemies. Not sure he confronted the demons. But we can’t judge that now.

“His death this past weekend is a huge loss for the people. When I say ‘the people’ I mean anyone who cares about a political system out of control, blind to its own corruption, deluded by its sugar-free media.

“Ruppert was a trained investigator who sought to expose the shadow elements of the US government involved in drug trafficking and fake terrorism. He had the financial perception to alert the American people to the imminent economic crash, two years before the meltdown of 2008. Mike Ruppert was one of the first to point out the gross anomalies and obtuse leaps of logic in the Bush/Cheney explanations for the 9/11 attacks. In an authoritative book, Ruppert even accused Vice President Dick Cheney as the chief executor of the 9/11 attacks.

“We met in 1999 in New York City. Ruppert came into my life like a sentinel from a different reality. I had just gone through a kind of gateway, and he was like Morpheus in the Matrix, welcoming me in. My red pill had been the disruptive re-print of a certain controversial biography of then Governor George W. Bush. As an immediate result, an entire class of underground whistle-blowers popped up to welcome me into their world. Welcome to Zion. You are in. They introduced me to sets of facts and data that were verboten in the blue pill media. Ruppert was at the center of that gang.

“He explained that he had been an LAPD cop and narcotics detective. His Mom had been a Defense Intelligence Agency heavyweight in Moscow, so the CIA recruited him while he was at LAPD. He declined the offer. Why? He saw shit. He began feeding the LA Times info on CIA heroin trafficking as far back as 1979. LA Times sat on the story.

“The drug war was phony. Which meant that both the local criminal justice system and the national intelligence/military apparatus had zero credibility. Wall Street, the White House, and everyone on down needed the drug war like a junkie wants heroin. The system was using. The system was an addict.

“The entire economy, and the entire political system itself, is currently hooked and dependent upon drug money” wrote Mike in 1999, on his main site, FromTheWilderness.com

“In the mid 90’s, when Ruppert’s friend Gary Webb broke a huge story in the San José Mercury News, it documented how the CIA and the Nicauraguan Contra network facilitated the crack cocaine epidemic in the 80’s. The CIA sent DCIA John Deutch to spin the story in a public auditorium. Ruppert confronted Deutch and named three specific operations that showed the US agencies were up to their elbows in black market cocaine and heroin. Deutch sputtered, told people to phone the LAPD, and was laughed out of the room. He was swiftly replaced at CIA.

“According to Ruppert, in October, 1999, investigators from the House Intelligence Committee came to Los Angeles, and made copies 6,000 pages of his records.

“That same year, Ruppert asked me for a $10,000 advance to do a book on the US and drugs. I didn’t have the money, and it’s just as well. Two years later 9/11 happened, and Ruppert had a lot more to say.

“It turns out the same parties who pulled off the cocaine sales funding the Contras were at it again. (Those parties being namely, the Bush Family, the GOP, the Democrats, the CIA and other shadowy quasi-government black factions too numerous to list here.)

“The book Ruppert eventually brought out in 2004, Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil (New Society Publishers).

“A reviewer on Amazon called it ‘The single most important book written in the last fifty years…. The Patriot Act, Homeland Security and the lies about WMDs in Iraq have created a growing sense of unease in the collective unconscious. As a result, a growing number of intellectuals and every day citizens are beginning to see the Truth and more and more people are beginning to wake up every day. Crossing the Rubicon is at the forefront of this new awareness.’

“At the end of 2004, however, tragedy struck. Ruppert’s friend Gary Webb, who had followed in Ruppert’s footsteps by taking on CIA drug trafficking, was found dead of a gunshot wound to the head.

“Reading Ruppert’s heartfelt obituary for Webb today, I am struck:

“I would never have confronted John Deutch at Locke High had it not been for Gary Webb. 

I myself might have committed suicide in 1996 – broke, divorced and having given up all hope of making people listen — had it not been for Gary Webb. For some years now it has been the farthest thing from my mind.

“Ten years later, suicide wasn’t far away any more. Ruppert’s struggles with depression, [plus a variety of psychiatric drugs, in-patient psychiatric hospitalizations and nicotine addictions over the years – Ed. Note] alcohol, and isolation became insurmountable. He moved to Colorado. He did one final radio show last Saturday and then that was it. We are all so fragile.

“Wherever men and women of honor gather together from now on, your name will be spoken with reverence, respect and gratitude. Ruppert wrote that for Webb ten years ago. The same goes for him.

“I prayed hard today to understand why this happened now. What does God want us to know about why this happened? What can we learn? How can this man’s death and life give our lives a brighter, sharper focus?

“I remember how Ruppert came back into my life a couple times. The time he was travelling through New York and needed a place to crash. I gave him the damp basement offices of Soft Skull Press, down in the bowels of 100 Suffolk Street, and he was happy to sleep there, on the floor. He was a soldier on a mission. Later, he kidded me about having the worst apartment in New York City.

“A few years later, around 2003, Ruppert was drinking beer in a corporate pizza joint in downtown Brooklyn. It was all wrong. Our choice of restaurant, the food, the beer. Ruppert had enjoyed speaking events of 1000 paid attendees, he had bragged from the stage that he had been sober for X number of years. So why drink beer now? He had some murky excuse the exact wording of which is irrelevant.

“I look at Ruppert’s life, his hard struggle, his victories and his short-comings. I wish we were closer in his final couple of years. I loved him. I say the following with love. I say the following because I don’t want to know any more great truth loving writers to die this way. If you have a drinking problem, hit a meeting. Reach out. It worked for me, to stop flailing about, running from city to country to city, always moving, thinking a big move is going to change things. Get centered. Pray and meditate. Be still.

“Something snapped in Ruppert sometime later in that decade, after the book. He moved to Venezuela, in rushed effort to seek political asylum from the Chavez government. Ruppert probably wasn’t anti-imperialist enough for their tastes, at least not in a leftist way. Oh, and the CIA/DIA family background probably didn’t help.

“I wept. I felt rage today. I was mad at you, Mike, going out this way. It was too similar to Gary Webb, to Jim Hatfield the Bush biographer. I don’t want this pattern. Tell me it’s not the fate for writers of deep truth, to die, alone, shooting their brains out, because they went deep and hard after the invisible forces, the slithering stag. The hunter became hunted by the dragon.

“No. Mike will be remembered for his discipline, his writing, his development of a critical paradigm. Our society is stronger for the deep analysis. In the same way that Ruppert investigated Gary Webb’s death, it’s up to us now to do the scientific and careful analysis of the crime scene. To pick up where he left off, and wake up to a new view of the matrix.”

Secular Anti-Humanists take the pulpit!

by Kevin Barrett, TruthJihad.com

As everyone knows, the mainline liberal churches in America and Europe are in decline. To find out why, I spent last Sunday morning knocking on people’s doors and asking them why they weren’t in church.

After suffering a string of epithets, two lost teeth, a bloody nose, and minor cuts and abrasions from a half-empty beer bottle smashed across my skull, I finally found someone willing to answer the question. “If that wishy-washy watered down anything-goes twaddle they’re peddling is the gospel truth, I’d just as soon nurse my hangover in bed as in a pew,” my neighbor told me before slamming the door in my face.

In a bold attempt to lure back the congregations they’ve lost, some ultra-liberal churches and synagogues are replacing wishy-washy theism with bold, in-your-face atheism. In Madison, Wisconsin, the local Unitarian church has hired an atheist minister. (No, that’s not a joke.) South of Madison, in Lincolnshire, Illinois, The International Institute for Secular Humanistic Judaism explicitly rejects God: “After the Holocaust, it is clear that the meaning of Jewish history is that Jews must be responsible for their own fate.

But now the secular humanist movement is being overtaken by a new competitor: Secular Anti-Humanism.

Just down the street, the Church of Jesus Christ, Secular-Humanist Liberal and Super-Tolerant Nice Guy has closed its doors. The new owner: The First Church of Secular Anti-Humanism.

The secular anti-humanists say they are simply taking the precepts of atheism and secular humanism to their logical conclusions. “Secular humanism is a contradiction in terms,” explains Dirk Boink, founder of the Secular Anti-Humanist Alliance. “If there’s no God, and humanity is just a bunch of selfish, greedy protoplasm that killed and ate and screwed its way up out of the primordial slime in a random and utterly meaningless universe, why in the world would we want to worship this disgusting human creature? On the contrary, we ought to hold it in contempt, fart in its general direction, and generally give it as hard a time as we possibly can.”

But can such a “religion” – however reasonable its precepts – attract adherents? Boink thinks it already has. “Most of the people who claim to be Secular Humanists are actually Secular Anti-Humanists,” he explains. “They protest too much that they love their fellow human beings and all of their productions, claim to be defending human rights as they mass-murder brown-skinned people to steal their resources, and sometimes even devote a small fraction of their net wealth to charity. But deep down inside, they loathe homo sapiens, starting with the one in the mirror. Their  real worldview was beautifully expressed by Charles Schultz: ‘I love mankind. It’s people I can’t stand!’”

But what sort of church services and religious rituals could possibly serve this philosophy?

Boink explains that everybody hankers after ritual – even folks who reject God, despise creation, and loathe humanity. “In fact, those are the people most in need of rituals,” he asserts. “People who can’t stand themselves and other people, and inhabit an utterly meaningless universe, have an even more profound need to experience the kind of rituals and consolations religion provides than religious people do.”

To that end, the First Church of Secular Anti-Humanism offers parishoners a wide array of activities. Upon joining the church, the novice Anti-Humanist is issued a string of rosary beads and a mantra, such as “Life sucks and then you die,” “People suck,” or “Well, I know it is not a great philosophy but….Well, fuck you! I can live my life in my own way if I want to. Fuck off!”

Every Sunday, the not-so-faithful file into the First Church of Secular Anti-Humanism, take their seats in the venerable wooden pews, and listen to an uninspiring sermon on futility. Then they sing “Hymn to the Meaninglessness of Life,” “Lack of Faith Is the Victory,” “Don’t Count Your Blessings, There Aren’t Any,” ”No One Ever Cared For Me Like Jesus (And He Don’t Care for Me At All),” “The Only Truth Is Entropy,” “Ain’t No God So Why We Here,” “Jesus Doesn’t Love Me (Since He Lived A Long Time Ago If He Ever Existed in the First Place),” and other favorites.

The First Anti-Humanist Church is still struggling to gain adherents–despite celebrity endorsements from Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and the rotting-corpse-that-never-had-a-soul-or-if-it-did-sold-it-to-the-devil of Christopher Hitchens. But over on the other side of town, the Anti-Humanist Synagogue is doing a booming business. “Jews come naturally to Anti-Humanism,” explains Rabbi Stephen Schivinitzer, founder of the Jewish Anti-Humanist Alliance. “We have a long history of disliking 99% of human beings anyway – the ones who are not Jews, especially if they are Arabs, Muslims, or worst of all, Palestinians. And now, with the new Holocaust religion, most of the world’s Jews have completely lost faith in God and humanity. We’re ready to face the hard truth, aptly described by the first great Anti-Humanist Jew, Leo Strauss, that the world is an evil place, people are evil, and the only way to get ahead is to be more evil than the next guy. That’s why we Anti-Humanist Jews are treating the Palestinians the same way the Nazis treated us. And don’t get me started about how cool 9/11 was.”

Leading Anti-Humanist Jews Michael “enter into evil” Ledeen, Richard “Prince of Darkness” Perle, and Sheldon “Nuke Iran and start World War III” Adelson could not be reached for comment.

A Century of Deceit: World Wars and Zionist Militarism

People keep sending me this article, which quotes me on where the neocons are coming from. It’s a well-documented, thought-provoking essay. -KB

By Brandon Martinez, Press TV

Some studies estimate that close to 1.5 million Iraqis have lost their lives as a result of the brutal American invasion and occupation of their country in 2003.[1] Millions more Iraqis have become refugees and orphans with no future prospects for prosperity, sanctity or stability. Most of the critical infrastructure of the country was bombed into rubble and dust. American depleted uranium weapons have caused cancer rates in some Iraqi cities to skyrocket, permanently destroying the genes of future generations of Iraqis who are being born with horrific birth defects and diseases.

The culprits responsible for this genocidal campaign to subdue and enslave the Iraqi people are not the CEOs of American oil companies as some disingenuous commentators on the Left have claimed. President George W. Bush’s foreign policy in the Middle East was not his own nor that of the oil lobby, but was the brainchild of the neoconservative conspirators behind the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and other Zionist-oriented think tanks that dominated the Washington Beltway.

Three of Bush’s principal foreign policy advisors who are widely recognized as the prime movers behind the war in Iraq were neocon ideologues Richard Perle, Douglas Feith and Paul Wolfowitz, all of whom have well-documented histories of Israeli partisanship. Perle and Wolfowitz, for instance, were both investigated by the FBI in the 1980s for passing classified defence documents to Israel.[2] Perle was once an employee of the Israeli weapons firm Soltam.[3] Writers for the New York Times described Wolfowitz as one of Israel’s “staunchest allies” in the Bush administration and revealed that Wolfowitz “is friendly with Israel’s generals and diplomats” and that he is “something of a hero to the heavily Jewish neoconservative movement.”[4][5] Feith once ran a law firm in Israel and received an award from the Zionist Organization of America for his “services to Israel and the Jewish people.”[6] The New Yorker revealed that Feith even has a portrait of Zionism’s founder Theodore Herzl hanging on the wall of his home library.[7] It was Feith and his neocon Zionist colleague Abram Shulsky who oversaw the secretive “Office of Special Plans” in the Pentagon where all of the lies about Iraq’s “weapons of mass destruction” were conceived and disseminated.[8]

These Israeli militarists, masquerading as American thinkers, left behind a paper trail that unveiled their true objectives. In 1996, Richard Perle, Douglas Feith and David Wurmser — all future Bush administration officials — authored a strategy paper for Benjamin Netanyahu’s Israeli Likud regime entitled “A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm.”[9] In the paper, these Zionist hawks advocated an aggressive Israeli foreign policy, calling for the removal of all of Israel’s possible military competitors in the region through force. They spoke of “weakening, containing, and even rolling back Syria” and of removing Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq, calling it an “important Israeli strategic objective.” Also on their hit list was Iran, whose influence in the region they hoped to neutralize as well. By eliminating Israel’s external enemies the Zionist neocons were in turn endeavoring to subdue Israel’s internal foes, the indigenous Arab Palestinians who continue to resist Israeli occupation and apartheid.[10]

Meyrav Wurmser, the wife of neocon David Wurmser, confessed that most of the leading neocons are pro-Israel Jews.[11] Gal Beckerman, a writer for the Jewish Forward newspaper, admitted that the ideology of neoconservatism itself was the brainchild of chauvinistic Jewish intellectuals such as Leo Strauss, Irving Kristol and Albert Wohlstetter. “If there is an intellectual movement in America to whose invention Jews can lay sole claim, neoconservatism is it,” Beckerman wrote.[12] Prominent Israeli journalist Ari Shavit said the Iraq war was engineered by a cabal of 25 mostly Jewish neoconservative intellectuals.[13] Famed American-Jewish journalist Carl Bernstein expressed the same view on MSNBC. The Iraq war was launched on a phony pretext by Bush, Cheney and “the Jewish neocons who wanted to remake the world,” Bernstein opined, much to the chagrin of the pro-Zionist host.[14]

The engine driving the Zionist-led neoconservative war machine is “holocaust” mythology. “For those of us who are involved in foreign and defense policy today of my generation,” explained Richard Perle in a BBC interview, “the defining moment of our history was certainly the holocaust.”[15] Douglas Feith often invokes the holocaust to justify his militarism. In a New Yorker profile, Feith asked, “What’s the answer to the Holocaust?” He answered his own question by suggesting that it is not surprising that this alleged event has caused so many Jews to become militant neocons dedicated to aggressive, unyielding warfare against all those who pose a “threat” to Jews and their interests.[16] In a New York Times profile, Paul Wolfowitz spoke of the holocaust as having a profound impact on his worldview.[17] Another neocon ringleader, Michael Ledeen, revealed his obsession with the subject in an article he authored entitled “The New Holocaust.”[18] Political analyst Kevin Barrett observed that the Israelis and their Jewish neocon patrons in Washington “are fanatical extremists who feel that they are being persecuted everywhere they go and that they have to be extremely harsh, unyielding and aggressive, as well as deceptive and violent with the world” in order to ensure their survival.[19] Somehow it doesn’t dawn on them that maybe it is their unscrupulous behaviour that is the cause of hostility towards them in the first place. Obviously introspection is not exactly a Zionist virtue.

The Zionists’ militarist mindset is evidently motivated by the ethnocentric myths of Jewish victimhood. World-conquering Neocon-Zionist belligerence is driven in large part by the religious adherence to the official propaganda of the victors of World War II. Elite Jews played an important role in bringing about the Second World War as the final phase of their plan to establish the state of Israel. The First World War accomplished several things for the Zionists: it freed up Palestine from Ottoman control (the Ottomans previously rejected Zionist offers to purchase Palestine), it fractured the big empires of Europe who could then be manipulated into future conflicts, and lastly it delivered Russia to the Bolsheviks, a majority of whom were Jewish chauvinists hell-bent on the subjugation of that Christian Empire. With Russia now in the hands of Jewish communist extremists and Palestine falling under British dominion, the Zionist plan for Israel was well on its way.

“It has been repeatedly acknowledged by British Statesmen,” wrote Zionist leader Chaim Weizmann in a 1941 letter to British leader Winston Churchill, “that it was the Jews who, in the last [world] war, effectively helped to tip the scales in America in favour of Great Britain. They are keen to do it – and may do it – again.” Wiezmann went on to ask for British assistance in the formation of a “Jewish fighting force” that would be used to ethnically cleanse Palestine of its Arab population. Wiezmann promised Churchill that if the British would help create a Jewish militia to conquer Palestine, he would do his utmost to mobilize American Jewry to exert their influence to draw America into the Second World War on Britain’s side, as they did in the first great war.[20]

Benjamin Freedman, a former top-level Zionist, exposed the machinations of his brethren relating to the First and Second World Wars and the Zionist conquest of Palestine. In a 1961 speech at the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C., Freedman explained that the United States was “suckered into the [first world] war merely so that the Zionists of the world could obtain Palestine.” Freedman described how Zionist Jews made a secretive deal with the British leadership during World War I promising to bring America into the war in exchange for Palestine. The result of this agreement was the “Balfour Declaration” of 1917, a British government decree that promised to make Palestine into a national homeland for the Jews.[21] Freedman stressed the absurdity that Britain “should offer [Palestine] as coin of the realm to pay the Zionists for bringing the United States into the war.” The Zionists, said Freedman, “have complete control of our government. … The Zionists and their co-religionists rule this United States as though they were the absolute monarchs of this country.”[22]

In a December 1919 speech in Jerusalem, Chaim Wiezmann boasted about securing the Balfour Declaration from the British government through “persistent propaganda, through unceasing demonstration of the life force of our people.” “We told the responsible authorities: We will establish ourselves in Palestine whether you like it or not,” Weizmann said. “You can hasten our arrival or you can equally retard it. It is however better for you to help us so as to avoid our constructive powers being turned into a destructive power which will overthrow the world.”[23] Threatening the world into approving the creation of Israel was part and parcel of the Zionist project from its inception.

In 1903 an early Zionist leader named Max Nordau conspicuously predicted the outbreak of the First World War, which lends credence to the suggestion that a hidden force of Jewish Zionists, Freemasons and bankers are responsible for instigating the conflict for their own purposes. “Let me tell you the following words as if I were showing you the rungs of a ladder leading upward and upward: Herzl, the Zionist Congress, the English Uganda proposition, the future world war, the peace conference – where with the help of England a free and Jewish Palestine will be created,” Nordau told his compatriots at the sixth Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland, 11 years before the outbreak of the First World War and 14 years before the British issued the “Balfour Declaration.”[24]

Such predictive powers unveil a plan that was consciously followed and executed during and after World War I. The “peace conference” Nordau envisioned was the 1919 Paris Peace Conference, which resulted in the Treaty of Versailles, a farce that unjustly punished Germany for a war it did not start, thus laying the groundwork for the inevitable outbreak of the Second World War. An international peacekeeping body was established shortly after World War I known as the League of Nations. The League put its stamp of approval on the British seizure of Palestine after the war, an imperial land-grab that had no real legitimacy outside of the self-serving declarations of the political elites, bankers and oligarchs who chaired the League.

The League essentially functioned as a tool of the financial elite and served the geopolitical aspirations of the Zionists. “The League of Nations is a Jewish idea, and Jerusalem some day will become the capital of the world’s peace,” proclaimed Jewish leader Nahum Sokolow at a Zionist conference in Carlsbad, California, in 1922. “The League has recognized our rights to our ancient home,” he said. “We Jews throughout the world will make the League’s struggle our own and will not rest until there is ultimate victory.”[25]

Even with Palestine now in the palm of their hands, the Zionists still had a problem: convincing Europe’s Jews to leave their lives of luxury and embrace Palestine as their new home. Such a task proved difficult, with only a minority of European Jews strongly identifying with Zionism at this time. This reality sheds a different light on the rise of Adolf Hitler and National Socialism in Germany, which proved very convenient from the Zionists’ perspective. While publicly professing scorn and hatred of Nazism, Zionist Jews secretly initiated a deal with Hitler’s government – the “Transfer Agreement” – which saw the transfer of tens of thousands of German Jews and their assets to Palestine. Lasting from 1933 through 1941, the Nazi-Zionist pact proved crucial to the future establishment of the Zionist state. The large amounts of capital and agricultural equipment that was shipped into Palestine by way of this agreement substantially contributed to the creation of Israel. “Through this pact, Hitler’s Third Reich did more than any other government during the 1930s to support Jewish development in Palestine,” opined historian Mark Weber in his article titled “Zionism and the Third Reich.” “[D]uring the 1930s no nation did more to substantively further Jewish-Zionist goals than Hitler’s Germany,” says Weber.[26]

Still, the Transfer Agreement alone did not produce the amount of Jewish emigration necessary to form an exclusivist Jewish ethno-state in Palestine, as the Zionists intended all along. There simply were not enough Jews in Palestine that would be required to replace the expelled Arabs and keep them at bay. Not only that, but there was still not enough global support or sympathy for the creation of a state for Jews. Since the dawn of Zionism in the late 1800s, Jewish-Zionist ideologues had been ravenously promoting the story of “six million” persecuted and oppressed Jews. “We Jews need a homeland of our own because we are persecuted wherever we go” was the traditional Zionist argumentation. But the First World War did not produce the circumstances needed to foist this propaganda on the world. Jews were not singled out for persecution or mistreatment by any belligerent in that war, which is why the Zionists, following the dictates of their founder Theodore Herzl, deliberately aided and abetted Hitler’s forces to corral their fellow Jews into ghettos and concentration camps during the Second World War.

Herzl, in his diaries, advocated making use of “anti-Semitism” to spur Jewish emigration to Palestine. “It would be an excellent idea to call in respectable, accredited anti-Semites as liquidators of [Jewish] property,” he wrote. “The anti-Semites will become our most dependable friends, the anti-Semitic countries our allies. … I have already told you that we want to let respectable anti-Semites participate in our project, respecting their independence which is valuable to us—as a sort of people’s control authority.”[27] Did Hitler not carry out Herzl’s exact mandate? It must be pointed out that Hitler’s “final solution of the Jewish question” was the same procedure outlined by Zionists decades earlier: sequestering all Jews into a single state, isolated from other nations. “The final solution of the Jewish question lies therefore in the establishment of the Jewish State,” said the 1897 manifesto of a German-Zionist group.[28] In an 1899 letter, Theodore Herzl asked the Russian Czar if he would hear out his “Zionist plan for the final solution of the Jewish Question.”[29] In 1936, the Jewish nationalist leader Vladimir Jabotinsky laid out what the Zionist plan would ultimately entail: “It is not our task to establish in Palestine a home for selected people, not even a state for a small portion of our people. The aim of our efforts is to organize a systematic massive Jewish evacuation from all the countries in which they live.”[30]

“The transfer of millions of Jews to their homeland [Palestine] will save the European Jewry from extermination,” declared Jabotinsky in 1940, adding, “Evacuation of the Jewish masses is the only cure for the Jewish catastrophe.”[31] The “extermination” Jabotinsky spoke of was not happening, but that didn’t stop Zionist propagandists from disseminating reckless atrocity stories of systematic genocide in order to win the world over to the Zionist cause. Legends of human soap, skin lampshades, shrunken heads, electric shock chambers, gas chambers and other absurdities were trumpeted from the rooftops by Zionists and their controlled press.

Jewish leaders made numerous public pronouncements designed to provoke Hitler, hoping he would unleash his fury upon Europe’s Jews, and with the help of Organized Zionism spur them to make their way to Palestine. For instance, Organized Jewry made a declaration of war against Germany in March 1933, before Hitler took any serious measures restricting the rights of German Jews. “Judea Declares War on Germany: Jews of All the World Unite in Action,” read the headline of the March 24, 1933, edition of Britain’s Daily Express. The corresponding article declared a Jewish “holy war against Germany.” “The Israeli people around the world,” the article continued, “declare economic and financial war against Germany. Fourteen million Jews stand together as one man, to declare war against Germany.”[32] A year later Jabotinsky made a similarly bellicose pronouncement, stating:

“For months now the struggle against Germany is waged by each Jewish community, at each conference, in all our syndicates, and by each Jew all over the world. There is reason to believe that our part in this struggle has general value. We will trigger a spiritual and material war of all the world against Germany’s ambitions to become once again a great nation, to recover lost territories and colonies. But our Jewish interests demand the complete destruction of Germany.”[33]

As the war drew near, Chaim Weizmann did everything in his power to invite definite reprisals against Jews from Hitler’s regime. In a 1939 letter to British leader Neville Chamberlain, Weizmann declared that “the Jews stand by Great Britain and will fight on the side of the democracies.”[34] Weizmann and his Zionist colleagues made many public statements to that effect, which Hitler referenced in a July 1942 speech.[35] In 1941, an American Jew named Theodore Kaufman made an even more brazen effort to deliberately provoke hostility towards Jews. He authored and published a book advocating the genocide of the whole German people by way of a forced sterilization program. Kaufman’s text, titled Germany Must Perish!, outlined “a comprehensive plan for the extinction of the German nation and the total eradication from the earth, of all her people.”[36] A map illustrating the possible territorial break-up of Germany and the “apportionment of her lands” was also found in the book. “Germany must perish forever from this earth!” Kaufman declared, calling for “a final solution” of German extinction. Hitler’s propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels was well aware of Kaufman’s hateful screed, and widely distributed it in Germany to bolster his case of a Jewish conspiracy against his country.

Zionist leaders and activists gave Hitler more than enough ammunition to justify interning Jews in camps as a security threat to Germany. The American and Canadian governments imprisoned Japanese, German and Italian citizens in camps during the war with a far weaker rationale. Japanese, German and Italian citizens of the US and Canada had not declared a “holy war” against their adopted countries, but were interned nonetheless. It is difficult to escape the conclusion that these Zionist provocations were a cleverly calculated ruse intended to create an atmosphere in Europe conducive to the Zionist transfer plan. Without the uprooting process initiated by the National Socialists and their Zionist assistants, it is unlikely that any large amount of European Jews would have voluntarily left Europe for an uncertain future in Palestine.

Some Jewish casualties in a devastating war that took tens of millions of lives was inevitable and very much desired by the Zionist leaders seeking a pretext to invade and conquer Palestine for Jewish colonization. “There are 6,000,000 living, bleeding, suffering arguments in favor of Zionism,” declared Rabbi Stephen S. Wise at a meeting of Zionists in New York in 1900.[37] In 1906, a German-Jewish philanthropist named Dr. Paul Nathan publicized the notion that the Russian government had initiated a policy of exterminating its Jews as a “solution” to the “Jewish question” and that six million were in grave danger.[38] Max Nordau, the Zionist leader who predicted World War I, invoked the story of six million persecuted Jews in 1899, 1911 and 1920.[39] At a Zionist conference in 1911, Nordau warned that it was only a matter of time before six million Jews would be “annihilated” by European governments.[40]

This familiar narrative was repeatedly advanced a few dozen times before, during and after World War I.[41] A most interesting example is from October 1919 when the American Hebrew publication carried an alarmist story headlined “The Crucifixion of Jews Must Stop” which alleged that “six million Jewish men and women” were on the brink of a “holocaust of human life.”[42] A New York Times report from the same year headlined “Ukrainian Jews Aim To Stop Pogroms” alleged that six million Jews in the Ukraine and Poland were being targeted in pogroms and massacres.[43] Another report from 1921 titled “Begs America Save 6,000,000 In Russia,” also from the New York Times, said, “Russia’s 6,000,000 Jews are facing extermination by massacre.”[44]

As the Second World War approached, Zionists amplified their atrocity propaganda. In 1936, Chaim Weizmann told a British Commission that “six million Jews” in Europe had “neither hope nor future save in the land of Israel.”[45] In 1940, World Jewish Congress chairman Nahum Goldmann proclaimed that if the German National Socialists achieved victory in the war “6,000,000 Jews in Europe are doomed to destruction.”[46] Amazingly, Zionist newspapers betrayed the pre-meditated and fraudulent nature of the six million myth by proclaiming precisely six million Jewish victims six months before the end of the war.[47] Soviet-Jewish war propagandist Ilya Ehrenburg told his readers that “the world now knows that Germany has killed six million Jews” in March of 1945, two months before the end of hostilities and long before any accurate statistical data of war casualties would become available.[48] “At that time, no demographic figures could have been available to [Ehrenburg],” writes Germar Rudolf in the preface of The First Holocaust. “Just a year later,” Rudolf continues, “British Historian David Irving emphasized that as early as June 1945, in other words immediately after the end of hostilities in Europe, some Zionist leaders claimed to be able to provide the precise number of Jewish victims – six million, of course – even though the chaos reigning in Europe at that time rendered any demographic studies impossible.”[49]

In an effort to whitewash their own egregious war crimes, the Allied Powers went along with the Zionists’ pre-meditated fictional account of six million dead Jews. At the post-war Nuremberg trials, an Allied-run kangaroo court staffed to the brim by Zionist Jews and their Allied lackeys, the truth was buried underneath a tidal wave of falsehoods. The Zionist motives for the war itself were purposefully obscured and a cartoonish propaganda narrative of “Nazi evil” was foisted upon the world to advance the victors’ post-war aims for Europe and accelerate the Zionists’ ambitions for a Jewish ethno-state in Palestine. American Senator Thomas Dodd, who was a chief prosecutor at the Nuremberg trials in 1945, revealed in a letter to his wife that the staff at Nuremberg was about 75 per cent Jewish. “Now my point is that the Jews should stay away from this trial — for their own sake,” Dodd wrote in the letter, adding, “For … the charge ‘a war for the Jews’ is still being made and in the post-war years it will be made again and again. The too large percentage of Jewish men and women here [at Nuremberg] will be cited as proof of this charge.”[50]

When the Soviet Union and its communist satellites in Eastern Europe collapsed in 1991, so did the myth of the six million. The Soviet lie of four million deaths at Auschwitz – a monstrous exaggeration accepted as ‘fact’ for decades — was officially reduced to around one million, but revisionist historians doubt even that figure. Revisionist scholarship has determined that somewhere between 100-150 thousand people perished in Auschwitz mainly as a result of disease and starvation, which was not a deliberate act on the part of the Germans but rather the outcome of Allied carpet-bombing of Germany’s infrastructure.[51] For years Zionist propagandists claimed several million Jews had been killed by the Germans at the Mauthausen and Majdanek concentration camps, but recent official revisions place the Jewish death totals there at 74,000 combined.[52] Despite the vast lowering of the death figures at many major camps, Zionists and those they have convinced through incessant propaganda still repeat the erroneous six million number as fact.

Jewish scholar Norman Finkelstein outlined Zionist deceptions vis-à-vis the orthodox holocaust narrative in his book The Holocaust Industry.[53] Finkelstein observes that a dogma has been fashioned around the “holocaust” by the Jewish-Zionist establishment as a means of thought control. Shielding Israel from criticism and rebuke, Finkelstein argues, is a primary motivation behind the ceaseless promotion of holocaust mythology, in addition to Zionist shakedowns for reparations money from Germany. This profitable industry is bolstered by the Hollywood entertainment establishment which is “totally run by Jews” according to the Jewish Los Angeles Times columnist Joel Stein.[54] Not only does the holocaust dogma provide Zionist Jews with psychological cover to commit heinous crimes against the Palestinians and mask them under a façade of victimhood, but it also acts as a perpetual pretext for wars that serve Israel’s interests, such as the war in Iraq.

Gilad Sharon, the son of Israeli war criminal politician Ariel Sharon, vividly unveiled the bloodthirsty and bellicose nature of Zionism in a 2012 op-ed for the Jerusalem Post. Calling openly for the genocidal carpet-bombing of Gaza, Sharon declared: “We need to flatten entire neighborhoods in Gaza. Flatten all of Gaza. The Americans didn’t stop with Hiroshima – the Japanese weren’t surrendering fast enough, so they hit Nagasaki, too.”[55] Sharon’s remarks are not the ravings of a fringe lunatic — they are completely consistent with the teachings of the pioneers of Zionist ideology, like Dr. David Wolffsohn, the late World Zionist Organization chairman, who told a meeting of Zionists in 1907 that Jews must put aside their differences and unite to “conquer the world.”[56] Vladimir Jabotinsky, the father of the Revisionist strain of Zionism, said candidly, “We want a Jewish Empire.”[57] Zionism is a “death-crazed narcissistic cult,” said Rich Siegel, a former Zionist who saw the light.[58] The inhuman precepts of the Jewish supremacist mentality that is so prevalent in Israel today can only result in more violence and bloodshed, more misery and suffering for the Palestinians and Arabs in general.

While the West bears much shame and responsibility for aiding and abetting the Zionist project and all of its murderous and destructive consequences, bringing history into accordance with the facts is one way to uplift the Palestinians whose struggle for freedom and justice goes on.

HOMELESSNESS, POVERTY, WARS, DICTATORSHIP AND THE NEW WORLD ORDER IN AMERICA

Mujahid Kamran

March 15, 2014

Control oil and you control nations, control food and you control the people.

Attributed to Henry Kissinger

Dave Hodges wrote on February 3, 2014 [1]:

This is not the country I grew up in. Since 9/11, this country resembles Stalinist Russia more than it does the country I was raised in. Since 9/11, every constitutional protection has been abrogated by the bankers who have hijacked my government.”

Earlier, in 2012, Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of Treasury had stated [2]:

The United States has collapsed economically, socially, politically, legally, constitutionally, and environmentally. The country that exists today is not even a shell of the country into which I was born.”

The internet is abuzz with similar statements being made by patriotic Americans who have increasingly become aware of the assault on their way of life, their constitution, their civil liberties, their savings and their homes. There is a realization that the United States of America has been hijacked by a deeply embedded financial Elite that exercises profound control over its institutions, civil, military and judicial. Over ten million homes have been foreclosed since 2007, tent cities have cropped up, and the numbers of destitute, homeless and hungry have swelled to unprecedented levels.

In an article posted on the web in November 2013 it has been pointed out [3] that the US now has 49.7 million people in the “Poor” category and 80% of the total population is either near poverty or below the poverty line. The article states:

If you live in the United States, there is a good chance that you are now living in poverty or near poverty. Nearly 50 million Americans, (49.7 Million), are living below the poverty line, with 80% of the entire U.S. population living near poverty or below it. That near poverty statistic is perhaps more startling than the 50 million Americans below the poverty line, because it translates to a full 80% of the population struggling with joblessness, near-poverty or reliance on government assistance to help make ends meet.”

The article further quotes Sheldon Danziger, a University of Michigan economist:

The primary reason that poverty remains so high is that the benefits of a growing economy are no longer being shared by all workers as they were in the quarter century following the end of World War II. Given current economic conditions, poverty will not be substantially reduced unless the government does more to help the working poor.”

Michael Snyder has pointed out that anger is growing in America as unemployment benefits are cut. In an article that appeared on the internet on December 30, 2013 he wrote [4]:

In America today, there are close to 50 million people living in poverty and there are more than 100 million people that get money from the federal government every month.  As the middle class disintegrates, poverty is climbing to unprecedented levels.  Even though the stock market has been setting record high after record high, the amount of anger and frustration boiling just under the surface in our nation grows with each passing day.  And now extended unemployment benefits have been cut off for 1.3 millionunemployed Americans, and it is being projected that a total of 5 millionunemployed Americans will lose their benefits by the end of 2014.  In addition, as I have written about previously, 47 million Americans recently had their food stamp benefits reduced.  The conditions for a “perfect storm” are certainly being created.  So how much longer will it be until we see all of this anger and frustration boil over in the streets of our major cities?  Is America about to reach a breaking point?

Adam Soroka wrote on February 26,2014 [5]:

The number of homeless families seeking shelter in the Washington, DC has risen by 135 percent from the same time last year, surging past earlier official expectations of a 10 percent increase, according to various news sources. The growing rate of homeless families seeking shelter is almost unprecedented, bringing the entire family shelter system to maximum capacity by late January.”

On November 21, 2013, Mireya Navarro wrote in the New York Times that the number of homeless in New York had increased by 13 percent [6]. The American youth is faced with a stark future with homeless students reaching a record level of over 1.1 million in 2013. Isabelle Belanger wrote on November 29, 2013 [7]:

A record 1.1 million students attending public schools in the United States are homeless in 2013. According to the U.S. Department of Education, the number of homeless students has increased by 10 percent in 2013, from 1,065,794 in 2012, to 1,168,354. Forty-three states have reported increases from last year, with 10 states reporting increases of 20 percent or more. The number of homeless children has grown 24 percent over the past three years.

The actual numbers of homeless students are no doubt higher than those reported, because many parents are afraid to report their condition, fearing that child welfare agencies will take their children from them.”

The present state of homelessness in US looks very ominous if one reverts to an analysis published in 1976 by Eustace Mullins, one of the deepest students of the tactics of international bankers, or the Elite. His essay titled There is a Gulag in Your Future states [8]:

America in the bicentennial year showed many characteristics of Russia in 1910. The white middle class is working hard, saving money, educating their children, and buying real estate and insurance from their earnings. On the surface, it seems a comfortable, predictable world, but terrible forces are at work. Like Russia in 1910, America in 1976 has well organized revolutionary groups infiltrating every part of society, and especially into religious, educational, and governmental institutions. As for the press, one need hardly mention that journalism has always been one of the most sordid types of prostitution, and American journalists have eagerly allied themselves with what they believe to be the great power of the immediate future, the Satanic powers of international Communism.

He also added:

Despite billions of dollars which Americans are spending on insurance, they are not spending one cent on any insurance against the real threat on the horizon, that is, the certainty that all of their property will be confiscated and they will be placed in forced labor camps to work and to die.”

Were these predictions of the shape of things to come, the ravings of a mad man? Since 2007 over ten million homes have been foreclosed and tens of millions rendered homeless. As for concentration camps thoughtful Americans are repeatedly warning about the Federal Emergency Management Authority (FEMA) plans to put millions of people in internment camps as and when required. In fact according to Sean Brown [9], leaked Government documents indicate that FEMA has already prepared the criteria for determining the “Main Core” of people to be interned. Brown writes:

New documents reveal the criteria used to create the “Main Core” list that our government has been compiling on Americans. To give you a quick background, “Main Core” is a list designed to identify Americans who could be deemed a ‘terrorist’ threat both to the nation and the government. It started with Rex 84 which was an exercise intended to suspend the Constitution and declare martial law in charge of cities and towns across the nation. It was created in case there was an uprising in America, and the original plan was to be able to detain up to 21 million people without due process and only upon suspicion of guilt.

FEMA created the Rex 84 program and is who would be in charge of the detention of people should the plan be executed. As of 2008 there are 8 million Americans known to be on the “Main Core” list and as time has passed the criteria for being placed on it has been weakened and the list has grown.

The information is gathered using spying tools that the NSA, CIA, FBI, and other federal law enforcement agencies use to monitor our daily lives. The list contains personal information like our financial records, our beliefs, our associations, family members, etc. and all of it is analyzed to determine if we should be placed on it.”

Please note that Eustace Mullins wrote his article in 1976 and FEMA was created through Executive Orders of the President in 1978 and implemented through two more Executive Orders in 1979. No legislation was carried out through the Congress. FEMA is the diabolical brainchild of two of the most ruthless and dirty Elite agents, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld. The FEMA exercise known as Rex 84 was conceived in 1984. Three decades later things have moved ominously close to internment camps. An insider no less than Justice Antonin Scalia of the US Supreme Court, who protected Dick Cheney after the latter had “accidentally” shot a “friend”, has recently made a statement to the effect that internment camps (concentration camps) are a likely future reality in the United States! He said this while talking to law students of the University of Hawaii in February 2014 [10]. That future is now around the corner – one false flag event, or a war on fabricated and trumped up pretext, can provide the trigger.

Mikael Thalen [11] has stated:

Recent revelations, such as the leaked FM 3-30.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations document, clearly outline the federal government’s plan to detain and ‘re-educate’ political activists in military internment camps during times of unrest.”

Mikael Thalen has further written that by a minor amendment of the original Continuity of Government (COG) program the Federal Government will have the power to impose martial law in any event it considers an emergency. The COG was designed in 1960s to give the Federal Government the power to impose martial law in event of a nuclear attack by an enemy. Thalen writes that in a leaked document Modernizing State’s Continuity of Operation Planning it has been revealed that Washington Military Department has suggested:

Change ‘only enemy attack’ to ‘any emergency, disaster or attack, in the COG Act as well as COG provisions developed for the Office of the Governor, the legislature, county commissioners or town officers.”

Thalen has further pointed out that:

The document also goes on to call for erasing government’s requirement of bringing the legislative body together no later than the 30th day after the attack to ‘as soon as practicable’.

If one looks at what is happening in the United States today, not through the “media”, which is a mere propaganda organ of the corporate Elite, but through the writings posted by thoughtful Americans on the internet, one can immediately notice what Professor Chossudovsky has repeatedly referred to as the “criminalization” of the U.S. state apparatus. Surveillance of entire populations, the unbelievable arming to the teeth of domestic law enforcement agencies, brazen lying by highly responsible U.S. officials and perpetual violation of the U.S. constitution as well as international law, have become the hall marks of the domestic and international conduct of the Government of the U.S. All this is being done by keeping the U.S. public in the dark as well as manipulation of the public mind, through systematic destruction of the middle class, and through engineering of consent by the media and through creation of appropriate mindsets at schools and beyond.

The United States has not only become a surveillance state in which privacy has evaporated as a result of the invasive surveillance of all digital life, but also a state which spies on foreign countries, including its allies, as exposed by Edward Snowden and many other whistleblowers. The shamelessness with which the Government of the United States and the corporate media “defend” the issue of domestic and foreign espionage is astonishing. When Snowden exposes the unconstitutional acts of the US Government he is dubbed a traitor! There is a strange logic that permeates the corridors of the US Government and the papers and the airwaves of its media – to expose illegality, to expose violation of the constitution, to expose deception of an entire nation, is unpatriotic!

In an article that appeared in February 2014, former Assistant Secretary of Treasury Paul Craig Roberts writes about five leaders of the U.S. intelligence community (National Counter-terrorism Director Matthew Olsen, FBI Director James Comey, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, CIA Director John Brennan and Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lt. Gen. Michel Flynn )[12]:

All five of these Gestapo wannabes are in violation of their oath of office to protect the Constitution of the United States. They have relentlessly violated the Constitution, which makes these five, who are in charge of US intelligence and black operations, traitors to the United States. Yet, they have not been arrested and put on trial. Congress is content to sit there and listen to their ongoing lies time after time after time, despite the fact that these 5 have committed more and worse crimes against our country than the “terrorists” that serve as an excuse for the crimes committed by the intelligence agencies. Remember, dear readers, it is a crime for you to lie to any federal agent even if you are not under oath or before Congress. How much more evidence do you need that you are not a citizen of the United States but a mere serf of the federal government? Will you ever wake up?”

The trends set in the United States of America have been more or less mimicked in other Western countries. The reason for this is simple – it is a single financial Elite that controls the politics, economics and foreign policy of the advanced world. The goal of this Elite is the establishment of the New World Order (NWO), a One Word Government under its firm and ruthless control. Under the NWO, the future of mankind is regimented and eternal serfdom, both physical and mental – control of the Elite, control by the Elite and control for the Elite.

Modern Science and Technology and media have increasingly become tools of global control by the Elite. Consent of entire populations is engineered through the media, through falsification and concoction of history and through general control of the academia. Above all the power to coerce and kill that has now been put into the hands of a puppet US Government through massive legislation and lethal inventions must compel every thoughtful person to ask as to what is going on in the world. The NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act of 2011) and Executive Order 13603 have given the US Executive the power to take away the transport and food stocks of private citizens at will, and even kill Americans.

Once one begins to delve into these matters the Elite strategy becomes very obvious. On March 13th, 2014 Dave Hodges posted a chilling piece on his website. His article is titled Slave Labor Camps Are Awaiting. He states [13]:

The powers that be have no choice, as most Americans will not willingly go along with what is coming. In previous parts of this series, the forces of WW III have aligned and are positioning for WW III. Your incarceration and subsequent use of slave labor, under a declaration of martial law, is next.”

He further writes:

Brzezinski expressed even more of a sense of globalist dread and panic during a 2010 Council on Foreign Relations speech in Montreal in which he stated that  “the major world powers, new and old, also face a novel reality: while the lethality of their military might is greater than ever, their capacity to impose control over the politically awakened masses of the world is at a historic low. To put it bluntly: in earlier times, it was easier to control one million people than to physically kill one million people; today, it is infinitely easier to kill one million people than to control one million people,” he said.

There can be no other reasonable interpretation, that this is a direct threat against all who oppose being enslaved and eventually exterminated.

One must read Dave Hodges’ article and look up the references mentioned in the text of the article. He describes how food supply will now be “legally” controlled by the government and people will be controlled by controlling the food supply. Hodges states:

The purpose of the coming martial law is twofold: (1) Eliminate all opposition to the authoritarian rule which has taken over our government; and (2) Use forced labor (i.e. slavery) to martial the resources of the coming war….

Food will not be the only means that people will be drawn into the camps. There are many secondary programs that have already been beta tested by this administration.”

In the light of the above it also becomes very clear why the US domestic law enforcement agencies are being militarized. The DHS is being provided with armored vehicles, and other military equipment, and has placed an order for 1.6 billion bullets, enough bullets to last a 20 year war. Drone bases are being set up and the US population is being increasingly subjected to harsh treatment by law enforcement officials. In March 2013 the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) simultaneously filed at least 255 record requests in 23 states to [14]:

determine the extent to which local police departments are using federally subsidized military technology and tactics that are traditionally used overseas.

`Equipping state and local law enforcement with military weapons and vehicles, military tactical training, and actual military assistance to conduct traditional law enforcement erodes civil liberties and encourages increasingly aggressive policing, particularly in poor neighborhoods and communities of color,’ said Kara Dansky, senior counsel for the ACLU’s Center for Justice. ‘We’ve seen examples of this in several localities, but we don’t know the dimensions of the problem.’

The report by the ACLU further states:

The affiliates filed public records requests with local law enforcement agencies seeking information on the use of:

Special Weapons and Tactics teams, including:

  • Number and purpose of deployments

  • Types of weapons used during deployments

  • Injuries sustained by civilians during deployments

  • Training materials

  • Funding sources.

Cutting edge weapons and technologies, including:

  • GPS tracking devices

  • Unmanned aerial vehicles, or “drones”

  • Augmented detainee restraint, or “shock-cuffs”

  • Military weaponry, equipment, and vehicles obtained from or funded by federal agencies such as the Departments of Defense and/or Homeland Security.

Affiliates filed a second request with state National Guards seeking information regarding:

  • Cooperative agreements between local police departments and the National Guard counter-drug program.

  • Incidents of National Guard contact with civilians.

The American people deserve to know how much our local police are using military weapons and tactics for everyday policing,’ said Allie Bohm, ACLU advocacy and policy strategist. ‘The militarization of local police is a threat to Americans’ right to live without fear of military-style intervention in their daily lives, and we need to make sure these resources and tactics are deployed only with rigorous oversight and strong legal protections.’”

In the 1980s Eustace Mullins had pointed out that when the 200 million guns in America will be confiscated the Elite will impose a naked dictatorship in USA. Since gun control has failed thus far the domestic law enforcement agencies are not only being militarized – they are also being “Israelized” [15]. It was in 2012 that Gordon Duff summarized the new trends in the US Police Forces:

Total militarization of police, military tactics, utter disrespect for civil law, the constitution, civil liberties, freedom of speech and the unbridled growth of centralized power under unlimited corruption; government by money and organized crime.

Systematic suppression of dissent.

Systematic use of intimidation to control the electoral process at every level of government.

Seamless coordination with military and “internationalist” groups to prepare for mass internment of sectors of the population, numbering in the millions.

Coordinated use of full military power including but not limited to bombing, strafing, heavy artillery and summary executions, the same methods Israel uses on a daily basis.

Even more control of the press, based on the Israeli model, with two ‘controlled’ views, on pro-government and the second, `controlled opposition.’”

In an interview given to Press TV that appeared in November 2013, Jim Fetzer, founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth Movement, commented on US Senate Intelligence Committee’s proposed measures to allow the continuation of surveillance of US citizens in the following words [16]:

It is completely unconstitutional and it cannot be justified on the basis of domestic terrorism. The very same Committee that is considering this legislation released a report on October 3, 2012 based upon its review of 680 fusion center reports or fusion centers’ merged Federal State and local anti-terrorism efforts gathered between 2009 and 2010 and in that 680 reports distributed all over the country they found not a single instance, -not one, zero, zilch, naught, none- of domestic terrorist activity.

So, this is clearly not directed at domestic terrorist activities; instead it is directed at opponents of the National Security State. Dianne Feinstein, I am sorry to say, is a stooge of Israel. She is one of many.”

Commenting on domestic spying and foreign espionage Jim Fetzer stated:

It is worldwide and massive. They are vacuuming up everyone’s electronic communications, are vacuuming up everyone’s email, cell phones, any form of communication, financial and medical.

Chancellor Merkel was well alarmed because she grew up and born in East Germany which was dominated by the Stasi, the most effective secret organization ever conceived by the mind of man and it turns out at last that our own Department of Homeland Security was modeled after the Stasi in combination with the NSA the HS is seeking to dominate the United States or try to disarm Americans so they cannot stand up and oppose the imposition of tyranny by this administration.

It is a very serious situation. I am very profoundly troubled and the whole world ought to be disturbed by what is going on here.”

And what is being done to the people of USA will be followed in the advanced world and elsewhere. People are being perpetually duped, confused and fed with lies and distortions. The public is not being given the respite and time to think, by design. As pointed out by Werner de Gruijter, Arnout Ktediet and Sven Jense [17]:

Politicians on both sides of the Atlantic who construct an image of toughness – tough on crime, on terrorism, on humanistic-inspired idealism etc – are tapping into a sensitive spot that blocks critical thought among the public. Obama’s brute and harsh reaction on Edward Snowden’s revelations is just another example. Somehow it seems like “We the people ..” lost track of ourselves. …

Many countries in the West, like Britain, France, Spain, the US and the Netherlands have experienced in recent years an exponential increase in technological surveillance and a resolute decline in parliamentary and judicial control over state police and secret service.

Issues like ban on torture, the possibility of detention without charge, privacy and freedom of speech were in public debates reframed in favor of state control. And everybody accepted it. To be fair there was some opposition – but it lacked intensity.

This cultural shift towards perhaps a more authoritarian future for the West is no coincidence of nature. It is manmade.

Anyone who reads the quotes cited in this article must be able to feel and understand that since 9/11, the US government has rapidly carried out massive legislation and reorganization of the domestic police forces with only one objective – the suppression and coercion of the American people to go along with the demands of the Elite for a New World Order. The destruction of the American middle class is aimed only at eliminating the most potent resistance to the imposition of martial law and dictatorship in America. The only group with the ability to salvage mankind is being systematically subdued and destroyed. This is being achieved through a predesigned economic depression leading to poverty just like the Great Depression of 1928-1941. The Great Depression ended after the Elite forced a manipulated entry of US into World War II. Will the present economic depression lead us to WW III? Almost certainly once the people of the US have been completely subdued.

It may be noted that talk about the destruction of the middle and working classes of the US is not something which is not to be taken seriously since it is unreported in the mainstream media. The speech of Senator Bernie Sanders, delivered on the Senate floor on December 2, 2010, should put any doubts in this regard to rest. It went almost unreported in the mainstream media and it is only through the internet the world came to know of it. The speech opens with the following sentences [18]:

Mr. President, there is a war going on in this country, and I am not referring to the war in Iraq or the war in Afghanistan, I am talking about a war being waged by some of the wealthiest and most powerful people in this country against the working families of the United States of America, against the disappearing and shrinking middle class in our country. The reality is that many of the nation’s billionaires are on the war path. They want more, more, more. Their greed has no end and apparently there is very little concern for our country or for the people of this country if it gets in the way of the accumulation of more and more wealth and more and more power.”

The shattering speech ends with the following words:

So Mr. President, I think that is where we are. We got to own up to it. There is a war going on. The middle class is struggling for existence and they are taking on some of the most wealthiest, more powerful forces in the world whose greed has no end. And if we don’t begin to stand together and start representing those families there will not be a middle class in this country.”

The speech can also be watched on you-tube and one notices that not a single person in the House clapped when this spell binding speech ended – there was a stunned silence in the House. This was simply because the US Congress and Senate are absolutely controlled by the international bankers – the “elected” members dare not clap on any attack on their financiers and masters.

As far as undoing of the US Constitution is concerned, this has already been achieved to a very large extent through legislation and issuance of Executive Orders. Leading representatives or agents of the Elite, including Dick Cheney, Tom Ridge (former Chief of Department of Homeland Security), General Tommy Franks and many others have warned of a possible terror attack of the same magnitude as 9/11. Their statements are not isolated statements – they represent what the Elite plans. These people work in coordination and not in isolation – these are not their individual opinions. In fact General Tommy Franks clearly stated that he was sure that there will be an event leading to mass casualties. He stated that he was certain that [19]:

“a terrorist, massive, casualty-producing event [will occur] somewhere in the Western world – it may be in the United States of America – that causes our population to question our own Constitution and to begin to militarize our country in order to avoid a repeat of another mass, casualty-producing event.”

So the US Constitution will be formally done away with once such an event takes place and General Tommy Franks is sure that it will take place. As David Rockefeller put it [19]:

We are on the verge of global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.

However it is not every day that Nature creates a nation with such exceptional qualities as the Americans. The international bankers know the potential of the American people and are busy subjugating them and gradually destroying the strength of their character. The international bankers want to sacrifice the great nation of the United States of America on the altar of the NWO. Henceforth, if the Americans do not resist the Elite with sufficient strength, the people of the United States will be transformed into war labor and armies of conquest. They will attempt to subjugate the entire world for the international bankers who will, once the target is achieved, do away with American national sovereignty and put USA under the control of supra-national organizations set up and controlled by them.

The American people face a very stark choice – they will either be divided into those living in forced labor camps supervised by those inducted into domestic law enforcement and those fighting for the Elite Empire under the impression that they are fighting for America, or they will rid themselves of the banking system based on usury (which is banned by the three Abrahamic religions – pristine Judaism, Christianity and Islam) with privately owned central banks and become the saviors and liberators of humanity. Whether the great people of the United States will be led by the bankers into World War III through deception and manipulation, as happened in the previous two World Wars, or there will be a second American Revolution is something which remains to be seen. The outcome of the battle between the forces of NWO and the great people of the United States will determine the fate of humanity for perhaps the next thousand years. God Bless the people of the United States of America and may God Help Humanity.

US wars continuation of Indian genocide – Prof Kevin Barrett

The differences between Christianity, Islam and Judaism are things few talk about or understand but ones which Professor Kevin Barrett was kind enough to partially explain in part 3 of an interview with the Voice of Russia. Dr. Barrett also said that neocon Zionists and the likes of Zbignew Brzezinski do not represent the American people. Dr. Barrett says the US is overthrowing democracies all over the world including in Egypt, Thailand, Venezuela and now in Ukraine. All of these places have/had constitutional democratically elected governments and fairer elections than the US with its programmed Diebold voting machines.

Hello, this is John Robles. You are listening to an interview with Dr. Kevin Barrett, he is a Doctor and a Professor in Arabic and Islamic Studies, and the cofounder of the Muslim Jewish Christian Alliance for Truth. He is also the owner and manager of truthjihad.com. This is part 3 of a longer interview, you can find the rest of this interview on our website at voiceofrussia.com.

PART 1, PART 2

Barrett: And the whole media marching in lock-step with this anti Russia talk. It is really pathetic that the US is allowing these people with these kind of ethnic grudges, you know these Zionists, and Brzezinski, this Polish Catholic who hates Russia, to run their foreign policy. These people don’t represent America, neocon-Zionists represent Israel and Brzezinski is an angry exile from Polish nobility. What does this have to do with American interests?

Robles: If you could explain what is the difference between a Zionist and the normal Jewish person?

Barrett: Judaism is first and foremost a religion, in a lot of ways it is like any other religion and in the West religions have been losing some of their hold on the minds, especially of the elites, since the Enlightenment and since then Judaism has made a transition from religion to ethnicity for a lot of people.

Probably about half Jewish population today is not very religious but they still feel Jewish and they feel very strongly attached to their ethnic group and that’s fine. My friend Dr. Alan Sabrosky says that he relates to his Jewish ethnicity through cuisine and not foreign policy.

Unfortunately though there are Zionists who relate to their ethnicity through a fanatical love of this genocidal settler colony over in occupied Palestine. It doesn’t mean that they are all bad people, they’ve been brain washed like everybody else only more so, but Zionism is this project of invading, occupying and ethnically cleansing Palestine. It is an act ofaggression.

Zionism is a form of aggression which Nuremberg said was the supreme war crime so I’m forthrightly anti Zionists but certainly not anti-Jewish, I have all sorts of Jewish friends, radio guests who present different perspectives ranging from Rabbi (Yisroel Dovid) Weiss of Neturei Karta the who is a very conservative Orthodox Jew and an anti Zionist, that is on one side to all sorts of liberal and left and critical minded intellectual people of Jewish ethnicity who are a very important part of the whole intellectual ferment in the world.

Overall I respect Jewish ethnicity quite a lot and I think they’ve had great accomplishments and some incredible sense of humor, my favorite aspect of Jewish ethnicity here in the US. And I’m willing to be friends even with Jewish people who are very boneheadedly supportive of the genocide in Palestine. Everybody is wrong about something. So they are wrong about that and it doesn’t mean they are evil but I keep telling them truth about that and I hope that a few of them wake up to it.

Robles: What is the difference in your opinion, the core key differences between the Islamic faith, the Christian faith and Judaism?

Barrett: Interesting question. Well, I guess my perspective is formed by me being a Muslim and the reason I became a Muslim is that I agreed with that perspective, it made sense to me, so that said: to me Judaism seems to have been warped by a sort of struggle against God. You see that with the persecution of Job, you see it with Jacob becoming Israel when he wrestles with God, or with God’s angel but maybe he was actually wrestling with God in the original story.

The Tora is great literature, to me it doesn’t make sense as scripture. Too much in the Tora that just… if you really believe this is God’s word and the God that it is describing is the supreme one and only Creator of the Universe you are going to have to engage in some very wild and crazy leaps of faith to say the least.

With Christianity there it makes a lot more sense to me as scripture. There is this emphasis on mercy, forgiveness, love, identification with the victim Jesus, the guy that they crucified and scapegoated, and turns out to be God or divinely endowed with these beautiful teachings – turn the other cheek.

So I like the basic essence of Christianity but the Trinity doesn’t make any sense, three guys in one doesn’t make any sense to me, and also it seems to me that Christianity was infected by hatred of the female principal and hatred of the body. Ord the early Christian castrated himself for that reason and people like Alan Dundes have suggested that the trinity in Christianity the Father, the Son, the Holy Ghost or Spirit – ‘spirit’ being a word for semen is basically a fantasy of all male reproduction that gets rid of the woman. The Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit and where is the woman? Mother Virgin Mary comes back as this image of the divine feminine and we have people like Dan Brown and others discovering that.

But in Islam, which is the faith that I have embraced, solves these problems or it rather corrects these misunderstandings. There is only one, God is oneness, absolute oneness, it is all mystics, whether there monotheists or not, Buddhists, American Indians all say that the most profound experience, faith based experience you have is one of absolute oneness.

So God is one, God is absolute oneness, not three. And the first two descriptions of God that we have are the merciful, the compassionate (Mono-Rahim?) which comes from the word for womb, it’s like mother love, the first characteristic of God is mother love, a kind of love mother has for her children. That just corrects misunderstandings very quickly. I could go on and on about how I see Islam and getting monotheism right but I’m sure you have other fish to fry.

Robles: As far as I know everything comes from the same book or the same basic teachings but Muslims don’t believe that God could kill his son and the Jews think that the Jesus figure was just an average Jewish man.

Barrett: Muslims think that Jesus was an inspired prophet of God like Moses and Mohamed and all these other prophets. And that indeed God didn’t kill his son – one of the big corrections that the Koran makes – it basically says that they thought they were crucifying Jesus but they were crucifying an illusion and we don’t know what that means. But what it definitely does mean is that we shouldn’t idolize the crucifixion we shouldn’t be running around putting all of our energy in this horrible torture death and claiming that God tortured his son to death. That doesn’t make any sense.

Robles: I don’t guess the Nazis have a religious angle to them, do they? In Ukraine..

Barrett: They are sort of pagans/anti-religious. They are post Nietzsche. The modern West has been breaking free of Christianity so these are some sort of almost Satanic, or at least Faustian breakings free from Christianity and rediscovering this kind of pagan glory and dominance and mastery and hitler showed us that that leads to some bad stuff.

Robles: They are talking about destroying Orthodox Churches and hanging Jews and hanging Russians and hanging black people. It was really strange to watch how uncomfortable Obama was sitting next to this little nazi when they were speaking.

Barrett: We live in strange times.

Robles: Obama didn’t even look at him. Obama I’m sure with all his CIA intelligence he knows exactly who was sitting next to him. What else can we say about Ukraine? Your opinion on where that is going if we could..

Barrett: I don’t know exactly where it is going but it seems to me that I don’t see how the West is going to keep this thing, destabilized. I don’t see how they are going to chase Russia out of Crimea, Ukraine in general. They just don’t have the power to do that. So it looks like the West is digging its own grave through these kind of extremist provocations that were not very well though out.

Robles: Imagine this happening in the US. Let’s pick, I don’t know, Toronto, Canada or Ontario or something and lots of Americans there, maybe busloads have been killed, nazis start up, they say they are going to kill all Americans like they are doing in Crimea. Can you imagine the US not doing anything about it?

Barrett: Well, right, it shows this extreme double standard hypocrisy. There are two sets of rules: one for the rest of the world and one for us. That’s been the attitude for a long time. The Zionists are like that, maybe even more so.

It seems there is a kind of a pathological inability for Americans. Even average Americans have shared this failing, to see the other person’s point of view. It is really hard to sit down with Americans and say: “Look, this is how it looks from say Pakistan where American drones are blowing up wedding parties. Can you really imagine how you would feel if you go to a wedding and suddenly your kids and your friends get blown up by some foreign country that just sent this bomb to come and blow you up.” Like you would go bananas, right? But people don’t think that way.

And at the top leadership level it is even worse. There is some weird naïve quality to Americans that the world ends at America’s shores, since we are an isolated continent and the strange inability to see things from the other point of view and we are seeing that all over the world today.

Robles: I speak a lot with native Americans and they say all of you are delusional, because you are never taught the real history of the country. Everybody who is calling themselves Americans now, they’reliving on stolen lands, everybody is denying the greatest genocide in the history of mankind which was the genocide of the American Indians. Do you think that plays into American psychology?

Barrett: Yeah, sure. My friend Tony Hall who is a Professor of Globalization Studies at the University of Lethbridge talks about this all the time – how there is a kind of a continuum between the genocide against native Americans who were cast within even the Declaration of Independence, which is a magnificent document in some ways, as the merciless Indian savages.

They charged King George with coddling the merciless Indian savages who we wanted to chase off their land and exterminate, that is why we fought the American Revolution. That is one of the reasons.

So Tony Hall sees a continuum between that and the wars that have followed as taking our full Manifest Destiny from sea to shining sea and we’ve declared the Monroe Doctrine and we’ve got the Western Hemisphere to ourselves and then we start going in and grabbing colonies, stealing Spain’s colonies in Spanish American War and on and on and on.

These wars that have been fought since WWII were really American colonial imperial wars which Tony Hall says are kind of continuations of the genocide against the native Americans. Which is why we have Black Hawk helicopters, Black Hawk and his people including most of the women and children were just shot down like animals, pretty close to where I live.

They are doing the same thing to people around the world and especially the Islamic world right now that they were done to a Black Hawk and so many other native Americans. It has to do with that strange psychology that we talked about.

Robles: You see the resources, you wipe out the people. That is what’s been going on for 300 years now. I just see a continuation of it myself.

The right to self determination. It is a right in the UN Charter, I think it is 2.7, I don’t remember the exact number. The people of Palestine have that right, the Jewish people have that right, why don’t the Russian people in Crimea or Ukrainians in general have that right?

Barrett: Yeah, it is just amazing that the American power structure is making it sound like a referendum in Crimea is somehow some nazi style act of military aggression. This is mind boggling given that the US and its friends have gone around breaking up other countries, smashed Sudan into two pieces and that was a transparently phony and manipulated creation of ethnic hatreds that were used to break that country up intentionally.

And here we have people wanting a peaceful referendum after an unconstitutional overthrow of a democratically elected government and somehow this is an active evil and aggression. It is such a joke, it is just that level of lies in high places is never… You can just never believe that it has gotten this extreme.

I don’t think that the Americans care about democracy anymore we’re overthrowing democracy in Egypt, overthrowing democracy in Thailand, overthrowing democracy in Venezuela and now in Ukraine. All of these places have constitutional democratically elected governments. The have fairer elections than the US has.

US elections are determined by programmed Diebold voting machine. These countries have better elections that the US does. Now we have this simultaneous attempt to overthrow all of these constitutional democratically elected governments all over the world. It is very strange, we are now dedicated to making the world unsafe for democracy.

Robles: What else is going on?

Barrett: In Thailand the US tried to overthrow that democratically elected government, although it may not be the world’s best government but none of these governments are. The US government is neither. But still the pretext of supporting democracy has really worn thin.

You were listening to an interview with Dr. Kevin Barrett. This was part 3 of a longer interview. Thank you very much for istening and I wish you the best wherever you may be.

“Neocons hastened demise of US empire” – my Voice of Russia interview, Part 2

Neocons hastened demise of US empire – Prof Kevin Barrett

Download audio file

As the US attempts to rule the world from Washington through the use of force and a policy of aggressive war the neocon architects have overlooked the fact that the military depends on the economy and the US economy is hollowed out and on the verge of collapse. Countries such as Russia and China with strong economies will rise while the US neocons who came into power in the 9-11 coup d’état have only hastened the demise of the very empire that they intended to prop up. This is from an interview with Professor Kevin Barrett, who characterized Zbignew Brzezinski and the neocons as complete fanatical militarists zio-nazis that want to attack anybody and are even happy to attack Russia and threaten the world with WWIII.

Hello! This is John Robles, you are listening to an interview with Dr. Kevin Barrett. He is a Doctor and a Professor in Arabic and Islamic studies, and the cofounder of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for Truth. He is also the owner and manager of truthjihad.com. This is part 2 of an interview in progress.

PART 1

barret

Barrett: The most likely prospect for the next big world power is China. So, there is some strategic encirclement of China. It seems that they are facing towards the Islamic world and they are facing towards Russia demonizing these other countries, even though the likely challenger is China. And you have to sort of wonder why that would be. I suppose, in a sense they are keeping in practice, you know, trying to keep their big military beefed-up. Always have an enemy, you know, convince the people that there is always a big threat and that way you can keep that huge imperial force out there.

But the irony of this is that the military depends on the economy. And actually, it also hurts the economy, to spend too much on the military. One of the reasons why China is rising so fast, is that China spends a much smaller amount of its GDP on its military than the US does.

One of the reasons the US is collapsing is that it is adapting its policy that is not geared towards real economic growth at home. It is letting its corporations exploit workers all over the world and flee. And so we’ve got crumbling factories here in the US. The real economy is hollowed out here. And in the long run the place with the real economy, which of course is China right now, is going to rise. And the US will not be able to support its gargantuan military forever as its economy crumbles.

So, there is a real irony here. I think that the neocons have brainwashed themselves by reading too many stories of glorious victories in WW II and so on. They are really so tied into this ideology of militarism and tribalism, and politics as a science of enmity, that they miss the way that real power is mainly about the economy and the technology that goes hand in hand with the economy.

So, I think it is ironic that the rise of the neocons on 9/11, which was a neocon coup d’état, has in a sense hastened the demise of the very empire that they were intended to prop up.

Robles: I think they also missed the chapter in the book on the WW II, that it was actually the Soviet Union that won the war on the Eastern Front.

Barrett: That’s right! Yes, the myth of the WW II that we get here in the US is this black versus white, good versus evil myth. And for some reason the US and England are tied together, and the Jews, are tied together as the good guys. And the Nazis are the main bad guys. And somehow the Russian contribution doesn’t get mentioned very much.

And it wasn’t just a contribution, as you suggest. What was it? Three quarters plus of the German troops and military equipment was on the Eastern Front. It was really the Russians that defeated Hitler. And that was the war which really primarily was a war between Russia and Germany.

Robles: They say up to 40 million Soviet citizens lost their lives in WWII. So, it was the single biggest loss to any people in that war.

Barrett: Right! And all we hear about here really is the sacred story of the holocaust. I mean, the reason for the American dominant discourse that the WWII was good versus evil is because Hitler was the ultimate evil because he murdered 6 million Jews in the gas chambers. That’s what we are told here. And it’s become a kind of a sacred myth.

Personally, I think the historical facts are that indeed the Nazis bore the responsibility for a very large number of deaths in their work camps. Some of those work camps were horrific and people were worked to death. And then, they starved at the end of the war due to the economic collapse.

But the reality of these things, and the reality of allied war crimes as well, is that the Allies intentionally firebombed populated German cities,  had a policy of mass-murdering civilians with firebombs. They thought that that would somehow cause the German people to lose their morale.

The Americans joined in and then started firebombing Japanese cities, and then dropped two nuclear bombs as well. Eisenhower supposedly starved as many as a million or more German POWs after the war behind barbed wire with nothing to eat or drink. A million died. We can talk about mass murders in concentration camps. And then, another million or two plus Germans died in these so-called relocations after the war under allied occupation.

I believe the Russians were not exactly kind and gentle with Germany after the war either. But here in the West we get this propaganda line of good versus evil, which seems to be designed to obfuscate a lot of the allied war crimes of that war, which was an evil, ugly war in which everyone suffered. And we have this phony, sanitized version of it, which is used to motivate continued aggression.

And today they are casting Putin as a new Hitler, which is a joke, you know. But that’s just the vocabulary that they use here to try to mobilize the public opinion. Fortunately, it is not working very well. I don’t see anybody who is the least bit excited about trying to go to war in Ukraine.

People, I think are reading what they see in the media, reading the papers and watching TV and seeing this stuff, and maybe not actively disputing as much as we would wish, but I don’t think they are being energized by that. I really don’t think the American people are buying into this neocon propaganda myth that: “we must go and stand up for the Ukrainian people against the evil monster Russian Hitler” and that kind of nonsense.

Robles: 400,000 Nazis found refuge in the US after WW II. They started all the MK-Ultra programs and all that stuff. That’s one thing I’d like you to comment on. It shows the hypocrisy.

Another thing, you may not have heard and I would like to get this out there as much as possible, one of the first things, other than banning the Russian language in Ukraine, that these Nazis did, they went to the UN. Their so-called UN Ambassador, which was somebody they picked from the mob on Maidan Square when they chose their government. They go in there and he says – the Nuremberg trials were illegitimate. Basically, this amounts to Holocaust denial, which I thought would have resonated in the US with all the stories of the Holocaust. Have you heard about that at all?

Barrett: They really haven’t been reporting that here. It is just like in Syria. They don’t report that we are supporting not just al-Qaeda, but we are supporting this group ISIL, that is even too radical for al-Qaeda, it is too extreme. They got kicked out of al-Qaeda for being too extreme.

Robles: These were the guys who executed 12 Al-Qaeda guys for being too soft two or three days ago, right?

Barrett: That’s right! And that’s our side in Syria. And the media doesn’t really talk about that very much. And likewise, they don’t talk very much about these upsurges of these Nazis in Ukraine. And it is weird, because here in America, if you question 9-11, they’ll immediately start slandering you as a Holocaust denier.

It happened to me. I couldn’t get this thing off my Wikipeadia page. Some guy, a blogger just made up this story that I supported three Holocaust deniers – David Irving and two other people. And I never even heard of the other two people, they were just totally made up. And yet I couldn’t get it off the Wikipeadia page. And this is when I became well-known as a 9-11 activist.

So, they are using this Holocaust denial thing to try to police the thoughts of anybody who is at all dangerous to the power structure, but when it comes to actual Nazis and real Holocaust deniers in Ukraine, who are on the side of the US destabilization effort, apparently that is not a problem and we don’t even need to notice it.

If somebody who disputes Nuremberg… I mean there are ways to dispute Nuremberg that I wouldn’t have a problem with. Obviously, Nuremberg was victors justice, let’s be honest about that. But, at the same time, it did set some good precedents, such as aggression being the supreme war crime. And it kept the peace reasonably well, prevented the world from being blown up right up through 9-11. And then the 9-11 changed the game, at least here in the US.

No longer were we going to respect the Nuremberg tribunal, ruling that aggression was the supreme war crime, and from now on we were going to feel free to engage in the so-called preemptive wars and wars of regime change. So, I guess when some Nazi is railing against Nuremberg…

Robles: I’d like to get you to say this. I mean, you said wars of regime change, humanitarian interventions, preemptive wars – these are all just acts of aggressive war, aren’t they?

Barrett: Yes, they are not even pretending to be defensive anymore. That’s what I’m saying. Now, when you say preemptive, it doesn’t mean that there is any actual threat now, you are just preempting some imaginary future threat.

Robles: Yes, sure! Like I say – you might pick a gun up and you might get on an airplane, come over to Moscow and kill me, so I’m going to drone you.

Barret: Right! Exactly! And these neocons have said that this is what the empire has to do. You know, the empire has to make sure that no challenger could ever possibly arise and threaten US power. And so, 50 years before somebody is going to arise, you are going to shoot them. It is really an argument for killing babies, because they might grow up to be adults who would resist you. Which is what the Israelis do. But it seems like it’s become the US foreign policy on a large scale.

Robles: Wait a minute! You said this is what the Israelis do?

Barrett: In the sense that the Israelis are notorious for killing Palestinian children. Chris Hedges wrote the article Gaza Diary observing Israeli soldiers luring Palestinian children into the range of their guns with insults so they could shoot them for sport. And around the same time the British Medical Journal documented more than 600 such killings. And more recently, we’ve seen these IDF T-shirts saying “One shot, two kills”, showing the belly of a pregnant Palestinian woman.

Robles: Oh my god!

Barrett: And apparently they are very popular in the IDF (Israel Defense Forces), and other T-shirts with targets on Palestinian children. And there is a whole sort of weird ideology of going after the children. And there are quotes from Israeli leaders who’ve said that the children are going to grow up to be fighting against us, so they are the enemy too. And of course they are facing a demographic threat that ties in with that.

Robles: The eugenics failed, so they go after the children before they can grow up.

Barrett: Yes. And that is in a way kind of a model for this notion of preempting any potential challenger. It is like you can’t allow countries or civilizations to grow up because some day they might become more powerful than you and it is really a prescription for a brutally aggressive policy.

And I think that the mistake that it makes, I mean, it is obviously morally wrong, but even strategically, it is going to provoke opposition and ultimately lead to its own demise.

The Israelis and Zionists have thrives on provoking opposition, and then casting themselves as the good guys against that opposition. But there is a limit to how far you can push that.

Right now the US and the Zionists are not very popular around the world and there is a lot of resistance, both below the surface and rising up above the surface. So, I don’t think they are going to be able to keep this level of aggression going for all that long.

Robles: Now, a couple of things. A few minutes ago you’ve mentioned the rising power, that the threat to the US is China. What about Russia? You don’t count on that? Russia is leading the world right now economically. It is forming alliances – the BRICS countries, the Eurasian Union which is coming up, more European-Russian integration.

Barrett: Brzezinski’s strategic doctrine at least is to try to prevent the rise of any kind of united front in the Eurasian heartland. He recognizes that his project is trying to rule the world from a base in North America. And the problem with that is that the grand chessboard of the world has as a center of the chessboard the heart of Eurasia. And that is kind of in there between Russia, China and the Islamic world and India.

And so, that’s where the majority of the world’s people and resources, and wealth are. The English used this as their rule-the-world-technique as well. Divide and conquer the continental powers and this gives you the opportunity to divide and conquer the Eurasian heartland powers.

So, the rise of China as a very-very powerful single nation state that is going to have GNP way beyond the US GNP pretty soon and a much greater population and so on, that is one thing. But I think that the coalition of these Eurasian entities is also what threatens this project of trying to rule the world from North America or from Britain another island. They want to divide and conquer basically.

Robles: Brzezinski’s plan for Russia was 68 autonomous regions.

Barrett: Something like that, yes. He is a fanatic about smashing up every country into little pieces and especially Russia that seems to be his biggest target.

Robles: Do you know that the entire upper echelon of the US foreign policy establishment, including Obama’s advisors, they are all Brzezinski acolytes.

Barrett: Yes, I think Brzezinski is kind of the dean of the “realists’ school” an heir to Kissinger, in a lot of ways. And in some respects Brzezinski and his people have split from the neocons. But the neocon element is much more Zionist and I think kind of more ideologically fanatical, whereas Brzezinski is basically sort of a pragmatic realist everywhere, except for when it comes to Russia, which he hates.

So, they’ve actually been disagreeing about Middle East policy and especially Iran. The neocons wanted to smash every Muslim country, destroy all the enemies of Israel and, ultimately, Iran is the biggest target. Whereas Brzezinski says in his book the Grand Chessboard that the single biggest US strategic imperative is to be friends with Iran. So, there’s been a conflict around that.

But now it seems that the neocons and Brzezinski are on the same side, because the neocons are just complete fanatical militarists zio-nazis, they want to attack anybody. So, they are happy to attack Russia. And Brzezinski hates Russia because of his background, as you suggested. So, now we have Brzezinski teaming up with the neocons.

“Orwellian theater of hate”: My Voice of Russia interview, part 1

US Ukraine coverage: an Orwellian theater of hate – Prof Kevin Barrett

The outright lies being printed and broadcast in the western press regarding the situation in Ukraine is just the next level from a war on truth begun with the events of 9-11. Since that time the US Government and its subservient media has been pounding the American people with extreme Orwellian propaganda, that pays no attention to the reality of anything, According to Professor Kevin Barrett in an interview for the Voice of Russia.

Dr. Barrett says that now, for the first time in his lifetime, we are seeing that applied to a non-Muslim country. He calls the demonization of Muslims: Orwellian theater of hate style of propaganda which has now gone completely over-the-top, is hateful, is totally unconcerned with facts and has been turned against Russia.

Hello, this is John Robles. You are listening to an interview with Dr Kevin Barrett, he is a Doctor and a Professor in Arabic and Islamic Studies, and the co-founder of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for Truth. He is also the owner and manager of truthjihad.com. This is part 1 of a longer interview, you can find the rest of this interview on our website at voiceofrussia.com

Robles: Hello Sir, how are you this evening?

Barrett: Doing very well, thank you.

Robles: It is a pleasure to be speaking with you again. I would like to get your opinion on what is going on in Ukraine. In particular this a scenario we’ve seen over and over and over and over again, except a little change here – this is not as in recent past history an Islamic or Muslim country. But can you tell us the similarities and the correlations you see between what is going on in Ukraine and what happened in Libya and Syria, and Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia etc?

Barrett Well Sir, these regime change efforts, the destabilization campaigns that have been going on, all over the world really since World War II, the US has been running around the world with its CIA, overthrowing countries, intervening almost always, I can actually I think I could say pretty much always on the side of the worst forces in whichever country it is propping up goons, fascists, thugs, mass murderers.

Chomsky and Vltchek in their latest book on western terrorism, and up about 55 million people murdered by these US CIA in military interventions around the world since World War II. So, that is an old story. Since 9/11 we’ve seen a real acceleration of attacks on mostly the Muslim world and we’ve seen also an acceleration of the propaganda war.

Americans and westerners have been brutally propagandized since 9/11 in a truly Orwellian fashion that has no respect whatsoever for their intelligence. It is very shocking. Even, the US has never been all that sophisticated or even all that free in terms of its official discourse what you hear in the media, but it wasn’t this bad before 9/11, but with 9/11 in comes Bush with his ‘you are either with us or against us’, and they just dumbed people down. Susan Sontag talked about the infentilation of the American people.

They hit us with this extreme Orwellian propaganda, that pays no attention to the reality of anything, and now for the first time in my lifetime, we are seeing that applied to a non-Muslim country. We have been demonizing Muslims with this Orwellian theatre of hate style of propaganda since 9/11, but now they are using this over-the-top, just totally mendacious and hateful and totally unconcerned with facts kind of propaganda, turning it against Russia.

And in a way that is scary, because none of the Muslim countries they’ve gone after have nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them, none of the Muslim countries they’ve gone after really can fight back. And Russia does have the means to defend itself. So, the whole situation is just completely disgusting, and I am really ashamed to be a citizen of the US right now.

Robles: I am sure there is many people who would not support what is going on if were allowed to know what is going on.

Barrett: No, they just support it anyway. This propaganda is so extreme, it is just not working. They couldn’t get their war on Syria with their false flag gas attack last August, and they just couldn’t mobilize people at all. They show horrible pictures and nobody really believes it anymore, and I think the same things happening with Ukraine.

I don’t see any mobilization of American public opinion that wants war in Ukraine; that even wants to be involved in Ukraine. The American people thinks it’s to stay home and mind our own business and rebuild our infrastructure and let the world take care of itself. And I don’t see them succeeding in changing that. So, I think it is all a big sort of puppet theatre that’s been put on by these lunatics.

If you believe media, then you might think that Americans actually buy all this interventionism. But I don’t think they do. They are going to have hard time keeping Rand Paul down in the next presidential elections, mainly because the people tend to agree with that sort of perceived non-interventionism of Ron and Rand Paul. So I don’t really know if American people are eager for continued intervention in Ukraine.

Robles: I see, I see. The way Obama gets up there it seems like everybody is behind him, although he gave a press-conference with the little Neo-Nazi guy, Yatsenyuk, and Obama looked really nervous. He looked like he was out of his element, a little bit.

Barrett: Well things might be spinning a little bit out of their control in Ukraine right now. I just did a radio interview with a professor named Kevin McDonalds, who specializes in politically incorrect looks at ethnic conflicts, and he pointed out that we have a real strange marriage of convenience in Ukraine that was set up by this US-led destabilization of the Ukrainian government, they used Jewish Zionist billionaire oligarchs to finance mobs of Nazis.

We have the Zionist Jews and the Nazis kind of working together to overthrow a constitutionally elected government and it seems that the people trying to do this, at least the Europeans are hoping that Ukraine will become a European style multi-ethnic society that will just integrate into Europe. But doing that by having the Nazis and the Zionist extremist oligarchs working together to overthrow democratic constitutional government seems perverse and it seems that these fascist Nazi style elements in western Ukraine maybe getting out of control, and Obama and his people maybe starting to get nervous about that.

Robles: Well they are. They had their little triumvirate, except that one of them was one of these Nazi leaders, Klitschko, who I would say is a nothing, and then they had Yatsenyuk, who the Nazis and in their internal propaganda, they say he will never be president because he’s a … they use a derogatory word for Jews in their internal Udar party propaganda.

So, sure, Nuland didn’t want Klitschko at the top. That was revealed in that telephone conversation when they were deciding on the makeup of the future Ukrainian government. But they wanted Yatsenyuk, but the people of Ukraine don’t want the Right Sector, literally neo-Nazi extremists, the people don’t want Yatsenyuk, they don’t want Klitschko, and they don’t want Tyahnybok, he is a Nazi too. These people would never win in any kind of election.

Like you said, they support the worst forces, and who else is going to overthrow their governments militarily, usually? Who is going to go to war with their own civilian population, but probably the worst elements in any society? So, I would say out of control is probably a very good description.

Barrett: I see so many echoes of these same methods in these earlier coups, here in the US people on the left are aware of overthrow of Mosaddegh in Iran in 1953, the overthrow of Allende in Chile in 1973, and there have been a whole lot of other similar coups all over the world. And the playbook they use is pretty much the same each time.

I went back to that 1953 coup which was sort of a historic turning point in a lot of ways, I just was reading this great new book called “Coup” by Ervand Abrahamian, that really gets I think a much more accurate set of facts out about that 1953 coup, and what we see is exactly what they did in Ukraine, they work with the scum of the earth. They find fascists, venal types who are willing to take bribes in the military, and then they paid “rent-a-mobs” to create the illusion of popular support for the coup in the streets.

And in 1953 in Iran it was hilarious, the way they did this, their rent-a-mob was a bunch of gangsters. The two leading gangsters in, I think it was part of South Teheran, were named “Icy Ramadan”and “Brainless Shaban”. Icy and Brainless, and these were the two guys that the CIA paid off to round up a whole bunch of mobsters and goons and thugs and march on Mosaddegh to show that the people of Iran hated Mosaddegh.

And even the western media correspondents who were … the western media was lying about this, in the same way they are lying today maybe, yeah almost as egregiously, but even the western correspondents there were almost rolling in the aisles laughing at the grotesque procession of this supposed popular support for overthrowing Mosaddegh.

And we see something like that in all these places. Some places they manage to create a more convincing illusion of popular support these days, because of the way they get their rent-a-mobs now is they’re not all paid off, they manage to propagandize some folks who should know better, like in Cairo when they overthrew Mohammed Morsi, the first democratically elected president in the history of Egypt and put in this horrible thug Al-Sisi in his place, they did manage to scare up a fair percentage of the sort of anti-Islamist population of the wealthier parts of Cairo to be their rent-a-mob.

So, they have sophisticated propaganda techniques today that allow them to create a slightly more realistic illusion of popular support for these coups that they stir up.

Robles: I would argue with you about the word “sophisticated”, I mean because if someone like me can figure them out, I don’t think they are that sophisticated. I don’t consider myself to be extremely overly sophisticated but it is so obvious.

If you looked at the crowds in Kiev, young men about maybe 20-25, maybe Aryan nation would be the best way to describe them, and they were like the skinhead training brigade or something, I don’t know. They showed some protests in Crimea and women were coming out, the veterans were coming out, old people, children, families, some Muslim-looking people, and all kinds of people were coming out, right. As far as the rent-a-mob goes, it was completely just one face in Kiev.

Barrett: Yes, it was interesting that they were leaning so heavily on the skinhead element to create their illusion of popular support. I guess that would be the Ukrainian version of a Brainless Shaban and Icy Ramadan, the local thug element.

Robles: Well they’ve been training for about 10 years. This guy Yarosh, he was fighting with Chechen terrorists, and he actually called for terrorist attacks in Ukraine. Have you heard about that?

Barrett: No.

Robles: Now he doesn’t seem to know that Dokka Umarov was, as they say here, liquidated. He published a plea for Dokka Umarov to launch terrorist attacks in Ukraine against Russia. He was saying it was a good time to attack.

Barrett: Now this was all kind of puzzling to me because I don’t really see the strategic necessity from this US empire point of view.

Robles: If I could. What I see there about a strategic necessity, it is NATO. Now I don’t know if it is NATO controlling the US anymore, or the US controlling NATO, of course it has always been the US controlling NATO and the Pentagon controlling NATO, but NATO wants a base in Crimea. They want to get rid of Russian influence in Crimea. They have continued even since the end of the Soviet Union to fight this great secret war, which is not so secret, against the Soviet Union. They haven’t stopped.

Barrett: Right. Yes, I guess that must be it. And they are probably sort of trying to give Putin some payback for his very successful diplomatic maneuvers in Syria, and one way that would be to try to go after the fleet that can support the Syrian government. Still it is a very dangerous and I think short-sighted game to play.

I think the neo-cons could be playing an outsized role in this, and part of what drives the neo-cons is I think a love of mischief, for the sake of mischief, and also they love creating enemies and their philosophy is that politics is based on enmity. So, if you don’t have good enough enemy, you’d better create one. And maybe they decided that the Muslim world isn’t a big enough enemy right now, so they need to have Russia as an enemy du jour as well.

And they thrive on this, and of course they get money for it, it is a business for so many people. Victoria Nuland and these people are drawing nice salaries, and living in posh parts of DC, and hobnobbing with the elite, and jet setting around, and trying to create these new puppet governments, and things like that. I guess that is just what they do. They don’t want to get a real job.

Robles: You know about Nuland, right? I mean her husband is a Bilderberg.

Barrett: Her husband is that arch neo-con. What’s her husband’s name?

Robles: Robert Kagan.

Barrett: That is right. Yes. PNACer.

Robles: So, to the neo-conservatives, and we have to bring up I think, since you brought up that word in this group of people, Zbigniew Brzezinski, and Wolfowitz told Wesley Clark that they were in the business of destroying nations. Do you remember that?

Barrett: Yes, that was a post 9/11. They, apparently, immediately after 9/11 Wesley Clark was told that they were going to get ready for Iraq, and then a little later he was told ‘Oh it’s even worse that’, they are going to overthrow 7 countries in 5 years.

Robles: In 5 years, right. They said that before the next world power rises up to challenge us.

Barrett: Right, and it’s interesting that the most likely prospect for the next big world power is China, and though there is some strategic encirclement of China. It seems that they are facing towards the Islamic world and they are facing towards Russia, demonizing these other countries even though the likely challenger is China.

You were listening to an interview with Dr Kevin Barrett. That was part 1 of a longer interview. Thank you very much for listening and I wish you the best wherever you may be.

Pickle Boy Steps Up: Dill, Sweet, or Kosher? by Fred Reed

Some good “it only hurts when I laugh” truth jihadi type satire from Uncle Fred. -KB

March 21, 2014  – FredOnEverything.net

Now, about this Crimea thing: What I figure is, the top part of the Feddle Gummint got dropped on its head when it was little, and the rest is just asleep, or might as well be. We look to be ruled by a bus-station of dumb-ass rich brats in a constant state of martial priapism. I can’t understand it. Out of three hundred million Americans, and lots of them went to school and can pretty much read, we get a slick minor pol out of Chicago for President and Pickle-Boy Kerry for Secretary of State, God knows why. Before that, we had Hillary, former First Housewife. Even god couldn’t explain that. And they throw their weight around just like they had some.

Now Obama’s threatening Russia about the Crimea. He may know where it is. I admit the possibility. We live in a strange world, and unexpected things can happen. What I can’t see is, why he thinks the Ukraine is Washington’s business. Last I heard, the Crimea was hung off into the Black Sea by the Isthmus of Perekop, like a hornet’s nest from a peach tree.

Why do we care about it? I guess if it gets to be part of Russia, Arkansas is next to go.

Maybe it moved, though. Continental drift is a reality. It could be anywhere by now, maybe in the Gulf of Mexico. And even if it ain’t, I guess we need a war with Russia over a place that’s none of our business. I mean, I don’t see how we can get along without one.

Now, about being dropped on their heads: : Pickle Boy has said of the Crimea, “You don’t just, in the 21st century, behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on a completely trumped-up pretext.” I reckon he hasn’t heard of Iraq either. The world is full of countries, and it’s hard to keep track of which ones you’ve wrecked.

I have a strategy. If we want to do those Russian rascals in, bring’em lower than dirt, we ought to arrange to have the American public elect their government. You know, on some kind of contract. Then they’d be ruled, like us, by a nursery full of pansies, milquetoasts, ethno-picks, growly feather-weights, diesel dykes, and sorry rich kids who never got into a school-yard fight. Russia would never recover.

We won’t either.

One thing you learn in the school yard is never call a tougher kid’s bluff. It might not be a bluff. Uh-oh. This Putin guy, I hear they call him Vlad the Hammer: I bet there’s a reason. And Pickle Boy looks to me like a bug on an anvil. It’s Little Lord Fauntleroy calling out Mike Tyson deep in the ‘hood. Where Mommy can’t help.

I see that Genghis Obama has sent a destroyer, the closest he can come I guess to a Golden Horde, to the Black Sea, grrr, woof. It’s going to conduct military exercises—push-ups, maybe. Now, that’s going to frighten Vlad. I guess a sense of humor is a good thing in a president. Maybe he can amuse Putin to death. I mean, by all the gods and little catfish, what does he think a tiny irritating boat boat like that is going to do—torpedo the Crimea? It doesn’t float, Barack. It’s stuck to the bottom. You can’t sink it.

To put it simply enough that even the hair-salon Napoleons in the Yankee Capital might be able to understand, but most likely won’t, don’t make threats that the other guy knows you can’t follow through on. This idea is called “brains,” or sometimes “self-preservation.” Them days is gone when Washington could send the bathtub toys pretty much anywhere in the world and everybody would fall on his face and say, “Yassuh, bwana, yassuh.” Any third-grader in a country school in Georgia can see how things stand: Pickle Boy and the Jellyfish can (1) start a shooting war with Russia, or (2) back down and get laughed at by the whole world. Ain’t any other choices that I can see. God save us from little men with big egos and no judgement.

Now, I read a lot of history. It’s because I don’t have to spend all my time getting elected and posing for cameras and lying. A patch of history I’ve always liked is World War One. It teaches you how to get into a big war that doesn’t turn out like you think which is what usually happens in wars.

You start by getting a toy president, or amateur Kaiser, who doesn’t know squat but you can’t tell him because that’s disloyal or, depending, racist. Besides, he can have you shot. Then you let the military get the upper hand—von Tirpitz, von Schlieffen, von Petraeus, von Hagel, they’re all the same. It helps if the amateur president or Kaiser wants to be a Wahhhhh! President or Kriegs Kaiser. You know how short men act. It would be less trouble to buy them a codpiece.

Then you surround him with incompetent toadies like von Bulow or Pickle Boy. Then you tell the public about German Exceptionalism and how God meant for Germany to rule and civilize the world and everybody hates Germany because it’s so wonderful so we need a bigger and bigger army. It works every time. It helps to tell people there’s a Serb under everybody’s bed, or a Brit, or a commie or a Islam or terrorist or something. Pretty much anything will do. I figure it must get crowded under those beds.

The final part is to get yourself in trouble by having dam-fool mutual-defense treaties. You tell half the world that if anybody attacks anybody else, you are gonna jump in. Now the Kaiser had his own list of these traps. But Pickle Boy and the Obama Squad labor under the accreted load from years before. So Washington has to defend Japan, Estonia, Korea, the Philippines, Georgia (bof’em), most all of Europe, Ukraine, and lots of other places nobody ever heard of or wants to..

It just might be smarter to let the rest of the world settle its own problems.

I’d like to set these milli-Talleyrands and micro-Metternichs down and see whether they know anything at all about, say, Russia. I mean, like where it came from, how it got to be what it is, and what it wants, and why it acts the way it does. I don’t mean hard questions, like what did Oleg nail to the gates of Constantinople. Could Relish Man tell me who Denikin, Kolchak, and Wrangel were? What was the NEP? Just simple Russian history. I’ll bet good money they wouldn’t have the tiniest underfed clue. But they can bark from under the sofa.

A wise old newspaper editor once told me: “A burro is an ass. A burrow is a hole in the ground. A reporter should know the difference.” Now, I wonder why that thought just came to mind.

I remember what my Uncle Hant told Burnside before the battle of Fredericksburg: “Jinral, if you got the brains of a goddamed retarded piss-ant, you won’t try to cross that river under all them guns.” You couldn’t take Hant anywhere in polite company. But he had a point.

Debunked: the State Department’s List of 10 Lies Against Putin

A rebuttal to “President Putin’s Fiction – 10 False Claims About Ukraine”

The US State Department put out a catchy compendium of deceptions in recent days, being ten statements attributed to “Mr Putin says,” answered by misleading “facts” of their own. Here we examine the fiction, facts and propaganda of these 10 points, plus one big one they somehow left out, in countdown order from 10 to zero.

“10. Mr. Putin says: The Rada [Ukraine's parliament] is under the influence of extremists or terrorists.”

US propaganda lie: “The Rada is the most representative institution in Ukraine.”

The facts. Parliament was much more representative than the new junta because it was elected in a fair election in 2010. But on Feb. 22, opposition thugs beat up MPs who didn’t follow their line. Parliamentary seats and ministries were divided up among the opposition parties. The opposition — or their neocon handlers — had also made a deal with the local oligarchs to support their coup. These mafia billionaires likewise told parliament to fall in line. 18 of them were rewarded with governorships by the illegal regime. The people of Ukraine, who wanted peace and clean government above all, now are getting redoubled corruption and instability instead, thanks to US neocons and the dirty coup they financed.

“9. Mr. Putin says: Kyiv is trying to destabilize Crimea.”

US Propaganda lie: “Ukraine’s interim government has acted with restraint and sought dialogue.”

The facts. Kiev is ignoring Crimea’s statutory autonomy and calling its decisions illegal. Maidan terrorists have been caught trying to smuggle weapons and explosives into Crimea.

Yet not one person has been hurt in Crimea since its move towards full autonomy from Kiev began. Russian restraint has been even more remarkable, if one compares to the Shock and Awe of recent genocidal US invasions.

“8. Mr. Putin says: There have been mass attacks on churches and synagogues in southern and eastern Ukraine.”

I can’t find any trace on the internet of Putin saying this. Such claims have been made by Russian writer Israel Shamir. If it does happen, the oligarchs who own the Ukrainian media are in on the fix in Kiev, and they won’t report it.

“7. Mr. Putin says: Russian bases are under threat.”

The propaganda lie: Russian military facilities were and remain secure.

The facts. The lease on Russia’s Black Sea fleet naval base in Sevastopol, which was to expire in 2017, was renewed by Yanukovich in 2010 for another 25 years, to 2042.

Looking at NATO’s project of encircling Russia over the last decades, it is clear that Ukraine is the next target. Once you understand that NATO has just facilitated a violent coup to overthrow the Ukrainian government, it is clear that under their hooligan junta, the lease will become a worthless piece of paper.

In 1990, when Russia agreed to the reunification of Germany, the US and UK promised no eastward expansion of NATO. They have broken this promise 12 times. It’s a fact of history that the American nation has always expanded since its birth by breaking treaties and promises made with weaker nations. Today, those who try to make their own way free of US economic domination, like Libya, risk devastation.

Thus, not only Russian bases, but Russia itself is under threat by NATO’s persistent efforts to bring nuclear missiles right up to Russia’s borders. The NATO coup has installed a Deputy Defense Minister in Kiev, the Neo-Nazi Dmitry Yarosh, who vows to “liquidate the Russian empire.”

“6. Mr. Putin says: Ethnic Russians are under threat.”

US propaganda lie: “Outside of Russian press and Russian state television, there are no credible reports of any ethnic Russians being under threat. The new Ukrainian government placed a priority on peace and reconciliation from the outset.”

The facts: Since the Ukrainian media are all owned by oligarchs who swung their support to the new regime, they can be expected to hush up the facts.

But Western observers have also noted the fears expressed by Russian speakers in Ukraine. The Associated Press and US News reported that Crimean Russians are relieved that Russian forces are there to protect them “from a new Ukrainian government in Kiev that, they say, is ready to crush its Russian-speaking population.”
Crimean sources even posted a video showing that a busload of their citizens returning from an anti-Maidan protest in Kiev were beaten to death.

One of the first things the Rada did was to pass a law against the use of any languages other than Ukrainian. Although acting President Turchynov was well-advised to veto it, great damage was done. A bill was also introduced to ban the previous ruling Party of the Regions, favored by Russian speakers. It has in fact been banned by some local governments. According to the Christian Science Monitor, Kiev has itself to blame for alienating the eastern and southern provinces.

As for “peace and reconciliation from the outset,” the very first thing the Maidan terrorists did was to storm the government administration building and to lynch non-political IT staff that were working there.

5. “Mr. Putin says: There is a humanitarian crisis and hundreds of thousands are fleeing Ukraine to Russia and seeking asylum. “

US propaganda: “To date, there is absolutely no evidence of a humanitarian crisis.”

The facts: I could not find any reference that Putin has said hundreds of thousands are fleeing. On March 1, Russia Today reported, “Up to 143,000 Ukrainians requested asylum in Russia… over the last two weeks of February.” Their source was the Russian bureau of citizenship. Of course, Russia is two or three times richer and a lot more stable than the Ukraine.

The humanitarian crisis in the Ukraine is just beginning, with the IMF demanding to cut pensions by 50%. The average retiree will be starved from $160 to $80. Meanwhile, billionaire oligarchs are made state governors so they can further enrich themselves, their cronies, and the banksters in the US and UK who rewarded them with these fiefs.

4. “Mr. Putin says: Ukraine’s government is illegitimate. Yanukovych is still the legitimate leader of Ukraine.”

US propaganda line: “On March 4, President Putin himself acknowledged the reality that Yanukovych ‘has no political future.’ … The interim government of Ukraine is a government of the people, which will shepherd [sic] the country toward democratic elections on May 25th.”

Facts: The junta is illegitimate because it gained power by a violent overthrow of the government. Parliament was intimidated by force and bribery to change sides.
De facto, Yanukovich has no future, but de jure, he is still the elected president, because parliament impeached him under duress, violating the “reconciliation” agreement made the day before.

3. “Mr. Putin says: The opposition failed to implement the February 21 agreement with former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.”

Bald-faced lie: “Under the terms of the agreement, Yanukovych was to sign the enacting legislation within 24 hours and bring the crisis to a peaceful conclusion. Yanukovych refused to keep his end of the bargain.”

The facts: Yanukovich signed the Feb. 21 agreement, which said:
“Within 48 [not 24] hours of the signing of this agreement, a special law will be adopted, signed and promulgated, which will restore the Constitution of 2004 including amendments passed until now. Signatories declare their intention to create a coalition and form a national unity government within 10 days thereafter.”

According to the BBC Timeline, on the next day, Feb. 22, while Yanukovich was in eastern Ukraine, extremists seized the government buildings in Kiev, and parliament voted 328-0 to impeach him – so much for a national unity government. Yanukovich fled for his life.

Russia is insisting on the national unity government. With the destruction of Yanukovich’s Party of Regions, parliament is composed of a coalition of three opposition parties: Tymoshenko’s Fatherland, protester and heavyweight boxer Klitschko’s Punch party, and the Neo-Nazi party Svoboda/Freedom. Power is shared according to how much each group contributed to the putsch. Thus the Neo-Nazis gained 30% of parliament and ministry posts, although they had only 10% of the vote.

The Feb. 21 agreement was blown out of the water by the extremist coup d’état, not by Yanukovich. Not so obvious, yet beyond reasonable doubt if you have an open mind to look into it, is that the coup was financed and fomented by the usual US-NATO-Mafia Color Revolution apparatus.

2. “Mr. Putin says: Russia’s actions fall within the scope of the 1997 Friendship Treaty between Ukraine and the Russian Federation.”

Half-truth: “The 1997 agreement requires Russia to respect Ukraine’s territorial integrity. Russia’s military actions in Ukraine, which have given them operational control of Crimea, are in clear violation of Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty.”

Fact: The Kiev junta broke the treaty of friendship first by acting as an enemy, in concert with the NATO threat. Every friendly agreement has two sides to it.

As for Russian rights in Crimea, it has been a part of Russia for a long time. Russia lost thousands of soldiers defending its port of Sevastopol in the Crimean War and in WWII. The province was transferred to Ukraine when it was part of the Soviet Union, when this had little meaning. Even after the breakup of the Soviet Union, this was not so important because Ukraine and Russia were brotherly states.

Western intervention has turned Ukraine into an enemy. At this point, a patient and long-suffering Russia has bent over backwards too far and too long, and is justified in reclaiming its historic, vitally strategic territory.

Nevertheless, Russia is being careful to do this in a legal way. Crimea has a special status of autonomy within Ukraine, which allows it to vote on a referendum for full autonomy, or on return to Russia.

If we compare Russia’s action with the American habit of violating the integrity and sovereignty of other nations, there really is no comparison. The US attacks countries at will that are on the other side of the world, and have never had much to do with the US. The difference is night and day. Russia, on the defensive, is doing what’s necessary and repairing a historical mistake in the most painless and friendly way possible, without hurting a soul. Expansionist America, world power of aggression and genocide, has gotten 95% of Ukraine with her coup, but she wants it all!

In reality, Russia would have every right to reclaim all of Ukraine. Kiev was the first capital of Russia in the 10th century, until it was destroyed by the Mongols in the 13th. Russia finally got it back in the 17th century (except for the westernmost end that was part of Austro-Hungary, until that empire was destroyed by Woodrow Wilson’s own military intervention). Ukrainians themselves admit that Russia and Ukraine are one people.

How does the neocon project to usurp Ukraine compare to the Zionist project in Palestine, where the US squanders billions every year to prop up an illegal occupation regime based on the ridiculous, revanchist claim that a tribe with the same religion lived there for some time, 2,000 years ago? In both cases, the US is on the wrong side of humanity.

After Iraq, Libya, and so many other American holocausts, the world at large is astonished by the self-righteous hypocrisy of John Kerry, who can tell Russia with a straight face, “You don’t invade a country on phony pretexts.”

Russia doesn’t. The US does.

1. “Mr. Putin says: Russian forces in Crimea are only acting to protect Russian military assets. It is “citizens’ defense groups,” not Russian forces, who have seized infrastructure and military facilities in Crimea.”

Propaganda half-truth: “Strong evidence suggests that members of Russian security services are at the heart of the highly organized anti-Ukraine forces in Crimea.”

Fact: CNN reported on March 1, “The pro-Russian leader of Ukraine’s Crimea region claimed control of the military and police there Saturday and appealed to Russia’s President Vladimir Putin for help in keeping peace.” And a Sky news team reported their conversations with Crimean volunteer border guards

0. The Lie of Omission — The Biggest Lie of All.

The State Department propaganda doesn’t touch the question of who were the snipers shooting and killing both police and protesters on Feb. 18th and 20th. These provocations elicited a storm of gunfire, causing many deaths, which in turn brought about the rapid fall of the government. It is a classic provocation tactic which US special forces have often been suspected of before.

The Estonian Foreign Minister, who visited Kiev on Feb. 26th, reported that it was a common belief there that the snipers were elements from the new coalition, who sought to topple the government and gain power.
Further evidence has surfaced about this: http://ivn.us/2014/03/07/evidence-suggests-ukrainian-sniper-attacks-created-instability/
Large quantities of weapons were looted from arsenals shortly before the sniper massacre. On Feb. 18th, Ukrainian News Agency broadcast footage of an opposition parliament member’s car being stopped and searched by protesters. “According to the caption, the driver of the car, Sergei Pashinsky, is a member of the Ukrainian Fatherland political party. In the video, the car is stopped by protesters and searched. Inside the trunk was a sniper rifle with an attached silencer in a case. The protesters replaced the rifle and allowed the Honda to leave… Sniper rifle with a silencer, shot both riot police and protesters, in order to give their bodies for the victims of the regime!”

So who has really threatened and violated the sovereignty and integrity of Ukraine? Isn’t it the neocon Nuland who was overheard discussing who the US is going to put in power there, and who publicly boasted the US invested $5 billion in 65 different organizations to subvert and overthrow Ukraine?
