Post-Mortem Western Mainstream Media Propaganda vis à vis U.S. Presidential Election

Quotes:

  • “If the Nuremberg laws were applied, then every post-war American president would have been hanged. By violation of the Nuremberg laws I mean the same kind of crimes for which people were hanged in Nuremberg.” —Noam Chomsky

geopolitics_usa_f_hillary-clinton-the-dead-horsePresident Elect Of the United States, PEOTUS, Donald Trump’s 2016 victory has left the Western Mainstream Media (MSM) speechless but yet struggling to salvage some scrap of what is left of its credibility or lack of it. Rigged news is spewed constantly by Western neocon controlled-media-outlets uttering an endless array of war-mongering propaganda against PEOTUS, Russia and China. This neocon propaganda is topped up by a never ending cultural Marxist Leitmotiv.

In his essay What is Cultural Marxism, William S. Lind writes: “Cultural Marxism is a branch of western Marxism, different from the Marxism-Leninism of the old Soviet Union. It is commonly known as ‘multiculturalism’ or, less formally, Political Correctness. From its beginning, the promoters of cultural Marxism have known they could be more effective if they concealed the Marxist nature of their work, hence the use of terms such as ‘multiculturalism.‘” Cultural Marxism upholds, among other things, sexual lawlessness and the destruction of the traditional Judeo-Christian family structure: the foundation of any stable and functioning society.

geopolitics_f_daniele-ganse_us-nato-aggressions_english_01Both Democrats and Republicans parties are backed up by an oligopoly that controls its failing Main Stream Media (MSM) western propaganda with a succession of U.S.-NATO war-mongering geopolitical plots following each other at a breathtaking speed:

—Failed attempt to democratic candidate Hilary Rodham Clinton vote recount, which MSM rapidly brushed aside since more votes were “recovered” for PEOTUS than Hillary Clinton.

—Fake News narrative followed the failed attempt to the Democratic US vote-recount scheme.

geopolitics_f_propaganda_dr-gillian-tett

—Shortly after the Fake News narrative, the MSM oligopoly came up with the “Russia-rigged-the-elections-results” stunt in an attempt to oppose the alternative media with outlets such as former United States Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy Dr. Paul Craig Robert’s blog. As if mainstream media did own the credibility for delivering facts and neutral information to its sheeple: Yeah right!

Most U.S., British and French citizens, under the spell of Western democratic delusion, underestimate how crucial it is for the establishment to control the news thus their minds. Maintaining the right level of MSM propaganda upholds the sheeple’s support for U.S.-NATO inception of uprisings, coup d’états and wars : Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Ukraine being just a few of the most recent US-examples. Remember the 1915 U.S./British sinking of the Lusitania cover-up plot that eventually brought the U.S. into WWI? Assistant Editor to the Financial Times Dr. Gillian Tett reminds us of the importance of controlling the masses’ opinion: “Most societies have an élite; an élite [who] tries to stay in power, and the way they stay in power is not merely by controlling the means of production, to be Marxist: i.e. controlling the money, but by controlling the cognitive map, the way we think. And what really matters in that respect is not so much what is actually said in public, but what is left undebated, unsaid.”

—The ongoing U.S and Western neocon war-mongering against Russia and China could have reached the next level with the assassination of the Russian Ambassador Andrey Karlov who was shot dead as he was delivering a speech at the opening of an exhibition called “Russia in the Eyes of Turks” at an art gallery in Ankara. Russian Senator Frants Klintsevich suggested that “the cold-blooded killing of Andrei Karlov, who died after being shot five times in the back, was a ‘planned action'”. He continued: “Everyone knew that he was going to attend this photo exhibition. It can be ISIS, or the Kurdish army which tries to hurt Erdogan. But maybe – and it is highly likely – that representatives of foreign NATO secret services are behind it.”

—Finally, a Russian military plane carrying 92 people, including dozens of Red Army Choir singers, dancers and orchestra members, crashed into the Black Sea shortly after takeoff from Sochi on its way to Latakia, Syria, on Sunday, killing everyone on board, Russian authorities said.

geopolitics_f_usa_donald-trump_presidential-leverageAs author Fred Branfman wrote in his remarkable book Voices from the Plain of Jars, “One of the most shattering revelations about the [Laos] bombing was discovering why it had so vastly increased in 1969, as described by the refugees. I learned that after President Lyndon Johnson had declared a bombing halt over North Vietnam in November 1968, he had simply diverted the planes into northern Laos. There was no military reason for doing so. It was simply because, as U.S. Deputy Chief of Mission Monteagle Stearns testified to the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations in October 1969, ‘Well, we had all those planes sitting around and couldn’t just let them stay there with nothing to do.'”

One of the worst pieces of neocon U.S. propaganda to be published on the East Coast, besides the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, is The Washington Post and its daily disgorge of war-mongering titles such as “Intelligence community investigating covert Russian influence operations in the United States.” According this Washington Post article, “U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies are investigating what they see as a broad covert Russian operation in the United States to sow public distrust in the upcoming presidential election and in U.S. political institutions, intelligence and congressional officials said. The aim is to understand the scope and intent of the Russian campaign, which incorporates cyber-tools to hack systems used in the political process, enhancing Russia’s ability to spread disinformation.”

Well, is not this what one of the worst Washington neocon representatives, Hillary Rodham Clinton, gushes on a regular basis: “. . . And we will make sure the Iranians and the world understand that the United States will act decisively if necessary, including taking military action. There will have to be consequences for any violation by Iran and that, the nuclear option should not at all be taken off the table: that has been my position consistently . . . And Russia has to support the international community’s effort sincerely or be held to account . . . That Russia or China will pay a price, because they are holding up ‘progress’ blockading it that is no longer tolerable.” —Hillary Rodham Clinton

In a very insightful article, The New York Times’ Media Bias, author Noam Chomsky perfectly refers to the U.S. empire hegemonic aspiration: “The [U.S] media reflects, uncritically, the approved doctrine: that the U.S. owns the world, and it does so by right.”

U.S. Exceptionalism and U.S. Global Terror Management Strategy | September 11th 2001 and the Rise of The U.S. Neocons (Part 3)

__book_pepe-escobar_empire-of-chaosIn Part One and Part Two of this series, we reviewed why the United States of America has become the geopolitical Hegemon of our 21st Century. Rising powers China and Russia are threatening the geopolitical and geofinancial “command and control” neocon-led Empire of Chaos (as coined by Pepe Escobar) and forcing the U.S. to defend its US-Dollar Reserve Currency status with extraordinary and non-diplomatic means: Quantitative Easing or QE Zimbabwe style fiat paper money printing, color revolutions, coups d’états, war crimes, subversion, coercion and weapons of mass migration: Germany and Austria being the latest victims. However, China and the BRICS offer an array of geopolitical, financial and banking services providing the international community with a worthy alternative to both collapsing Petrodollar and US-Dollar:  

  • BRICS: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa as an alternative to the Bretton Woods Western nations USD, GBP, EUR and ¥EN
  • SCO: Shanghai Cooperation Organization as an alternative to NATO
  • AIIB: Asian Infrastructure and Investment Bank as an alternative to the IMF
  • CIPS: Chinese inter-banking payment system as an alternative to SWIFT
  • Shanghai Gold Exchange: an alternative to the paper-fraud markets of London and New York
  • CFFEX: China’s New, China Financial Future Exchange

It is also well worth noticing the entry of the Chinese Renminbi (CN¥ or Chinese Yuan) into the Special Drawing Right (SDR): the Elite currency club of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). As of October 1st of 2016, the Chinese Renminbi will have entered the privileged club of pristine world reserve currencies: US Dollar, Euro, British Pound and Japanese ¥en to become its fifth international reserve currency:

___screen-shot-09-17-16-at-07-09-amA few days back, we remembered September 11th 2001 15h anniversary. We are still longing for the full disclosure of what really happened. Similar to President John F. Kennedy’s 1963 assassination in Dallas, we most likely will never find out. Nonetheless, we now have proof of 9/11’s Mainstream Media cover-up as well as strong evidence for a miniature nuclear implosion/detonation with the use of thermite.

9/11 remains the coup d’état par excellence : A terror attack applied upon the American Sheeple and the creation of a fictitious enemy the Establishment can adapt, relocate and rename at anytime: The perfect enactment of a self-made neocon catastrophe that rallied people internationally, emotionally and passionately behind a newly created brand of terror: Al Qaeda, ISIS, The Levant, IS, ISIL, The Islamist State, Daesh or Al Nusra. All should be considered the neocons’ “War on Terror trademark“; a mainstream propaganda tool easily sold to a Western crowd way too busy with ubiquitous Internet, smartphones or Britain’s Got Talent. After 9/11, Al Qaeda 2.0 or ISIS would follow. Trained mercenaries are backed up financially by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; they often follow the Wahhabi strain of Islam that produces so many ISIS militants: Thanks to Washington’s acquiescence.  An updated version of ISIS, The Islamic State, would follow in Syria after Russia and China refused a similar French-led NATO bombing on Libya.

geopolitics_f_the-balkans_aThe iniquitous 1999 US-NATO dismantling of Yugoslavia (that preceded 9/11) was followed by a 78-day NATO “humanitarian bombing” of Kosovo with the help of German co-conspirator. Kosovo did not pose any threat within Yugoslavia or to any members of the NATO alliance whatsoever: Thus a flagrant crime of aggression in violation of Article 2.4 of the UN Charter. As we shall see in the next installment (Part 5) Kosovo’s capture could have been on U.S. Pentagon’s drawing board for three main reasons:

  • Control the Balkan pipeline energy-grid between Western Europe, Eurasia, and Russia
  • Control the heroin Balkan route from Central Asia’s Golden Crescent (Afghanistan) to Europe and beyond
  • Control South Eastern Europe with  1000 acres (3 km²) of U.S. military footprint: Camp Bondsteel

In a Global Research‘s article: Neocon 101: What do Neo-conservatives Believe? Global Research author asks the question: “What is the difference between a neoconservative and a conservative: Liberals first applied the ‘neo’ prefix to their comrades who broke ranks to become more conservative in the 1960s and 70s. The defectors remained more liberal on some domestic policy issues. But foreign policy stands have always defined neoconservatism. Where other conservatives favored détente and containment of the Soviet Union, neocons pushed direct confrontation, which became their raison d’être during the 1970s and 80’s.”

Mutual Assured Destruction or mutually assured destruction (MAD) [was] a doctrine of military strategy and national security policy in which a full-scale use of nuclear weapons by two or more opposing sides would cause the complete annihilation of both the attacker and the defender … It was based on the theory of deterrence, which holds that the threat of using strong weapons was a military strategy” dear to President Regan during the Cold War era. Ronald Reagan mantra was “peace through strength“, “peace was the end; strength was the mean“: it was based on a policy of military détente and as much as possible entente cordiale. 

U.S. neocons have pushed aside the Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD) doctrine to replace it with preemptive strikeDid you catch that? Preemptive strike…? The next installment (Part 4 of this series) will magnify the thought of “Preemptive Strike” and the nefariousness of these U.S. fascist neocons and their warmongering philosophy.

Beliefs: Conservatives

Beliefs: Neo Conservatives

MAD as Military deterrence Preemptive military strike | war
Peace through strength Use of U.S. unrivaled military power
Peace is the end, strength is the mean Forcefully promote U.S. values around the world: color revolutions and coups d’états
Reservation about military intervention Cultivation of a U.S. Empire (NGO propaganda)
Reservation about so called “nation building” “Democratic” transformation of the Middle East (Iraq, Egypt, Libya and Syria)
Policy of détente and containment with Russia Policy of aggression against Russia (NATO Anaconda-2016)
Multipolar world is supported U.S. is the unchallenged superpower and “benevolent” global Hegemon
Potential U.S.-threats are appeased or contained Potential U.S.-threats are confronted aggressively

__book_william-blum_americasdeadliest-export_democracyIn his blog-article “American Exceptionalism and the Election Made in Hell (Or Why I’d Vote for Trump Over Hillary)”, William Blum, author of America’s Deadliest Export: Democracy – The Truth About US Foreign Policy and Everything Else, writes:

My main concern is foreign policy. American foreign policy is the greatest threat to world peace, prosperity, and the environment [emphasis Geopoliticalnews]. And when it comes to foreign policy, Hillary Clinton is a[n utter] disaster. From Iraq and Syria to Libya and Honduras the world is a much worse place because of her; so much so that I’d call her a war criminal who should be prosecuted. And not much better can be expected on domestic issues from this woman who was paid $675,000 by Goldman Sachs [fascist bankster cabal criminals] – one of the most reactionary, anti-social corporations in this sad world – for four speeches and even more than that in political donations in recent years. Add to that Hillary’s willingness to serve for six years on the board of Walmart while her husband was governor of Arkansas. Can we expect to change corporate behavior by taking their money?”

Guest Article: “Trump’s Anti-Interventionism – Neocons Hate It As Anti-War Left Comes Around”

Original Link: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-06-22/trumps-anti-interventionism-neocons-hate-it-anti-war-left-comes-around

Submitted by John Walsh via LewRockwell.com,

Until recently the progressive mind has been resolutely closed and stubbornly frozen in place against all things Trump.

But cracks are appearing in the ice.  With increasing frequency over the last few months, some of the most thoughtful left and progressive figures have begun to speak favorably of aspects of Trump’s foreign policy.  Let us hear from these heretics, among them William Greider, Glen Ford, John Pilger, Jean Bricmont, Stephen F. Cohen and William Blum.  Their words are not to be construed as “endorsements,” but rather an acknowledgment of Trump’s anti-interventionist views, the impact those views are having and the alternative he poses to Hillary Clinton in the current electoral contest.

First, let’s consider the estimable William Greider, a regular contributor to The Nation and author of Secrets of the Temple.  He titled a recent article for the Nation, “Donald Trump Could be The Military Industrial Complex’s Worst Nightmare: The Republican Front Runner is Against Nation Building.  Imagine That.” 

Greider’s article is brief, and I recommend reading every precious word of it.  Here is but one quote: “Trump has, in his usual unvarnished manner, kicked open the door to an important and fundamental foreign-policy debate.”  And here is a passage from Trump’s interview with the Washington Post that Greider chooses to quote:

“‘I watched as we built schools in Iraq and they’d be blown up,’ Trump told the editors.  ‘And we’d build another one and it would get blown up. And we would rebuild it three times. And yet we can’t build a school in Brooklyn.… at what point do you say hey, we have to take care of ourselves. So, you know, I know the outer world exists and I’ll be very cognizant of that but at the same time, our country is disintegrating, large sections of it, especially in the inner cities.'”

Trump talks about building infrastructure for the inner cities, especially better schools for African American children, rather than bombing people of color halfway around the world!  That is hardly racism.  And it is not how the mainstream media wants us to think of The Donald.

Next, Glen Ford, the eloquent radical Left executive editor of Black Agenda Report, a superb and widely read outlet, penned an article in March 2016, with the following title: “Trump Way to the Left of Clinton on Foreign Policy – In Fact, He’s Damn Near Anti-Empire.” Ford’s piece is well worth reading in its entirety; here are just a few quotes :

“Trump has rejected the whole gamut of U.S. imperial war rationales, from FDR straight through to the present.”

 

“If Trump’s tens of millions of white, so-called ‘Middle American’ followers stick by him, it will utterly shatter the prevailing assumption that the American public favors maintenance of U.S. empire by military means.”

 

“Trump shows no interest in ‘spreading democracy,’ like George W. Bush, or assuming a responsibility to ‘protect’ other peoples from their own governments, like Barack Obama and his political twin, Hillary Clinton.”

 

“It is sad beyond measure that the near-extinction of independent Black politics has placed African Americans in the most untenable position imaginable at this critical moment: in the Hillary Clinton camp.

Next, let’s turn to John Pilger, the Left wing Australian journalist and documentary film maker who has been writing about Western foreign policy with unimpeachable accuracy and wisdom since the Vietnam War era.   Here are some of his comments on Trump:

“..Donald Trump is being presented (by the mass media) as a lunatic, a fascist.  He is certainly odious; but he is also a media hate figure.  That alone should arouse our skepticism.”

 

“Trump’s views on migration are grotesque, but no more grotesque than those of David Cameron. It is not Trump who is the Great Deporter from the United States, but the Nobel Peace Prize winner, Barack Obama.”

 

“In 1947, a series of National Security Council directives described the paramount aim of American foreign policy as ‘a world substantially made over in [America’s] own image’.  The ideology was messianic Americanism. We were all Americans. Or else. …”

 

“Donald Trump is a symptom of this, but he is also a maverick. He says the invasion of Iraq was a crime; he doesn’t want to go to war with Russia and China. The danger to the rest of us is not Trump, but Hillary Clinton. She is no maverick. She embodies the resilience and violence of a system whose vaunted ‘exceptionalism’ is totalitarian with an occasional liberal face.

The money quote is: “The danger to the rest of us is not Trump, but Hillary Clinton.”  When Pilger submitted his article to the “progressive” magazine Truthout, this sentence was deleted, censored as he reported, along with a few of the surrounding sentences.  Such censorship had not been imposed on Pilger by Truthout ever before.  Truthout’s commitment to free speech apparently has limits in the case of The Donald versus Hillary, rather severe ones.  So one must read even the progressive press with some skepticism when it comes to Trump.

Trump has also been noticed by the Left in Europe, notably by the sharp minded Jean Bricmont, physicist and author of Humanitarian Imperialism who writes here:

 

(Trump) “is the first major political figure to call for ‘America First’ meaning non-interventionism.  He not only denounces the trillions of dollars spent in wars, deplores the dead and wounded American soldiers, but also speaks of the Iraqi victims of a war launched by a Republican President. He does so to a Republican public and manages to win its support. He denounces the empire of US military bases, claiming to prefer to build schools here in the United States. He wants good relations with Russia. He observes that the militarist policies pursued for decades have caused the United States to be hated throughout the world. He calls Sarkozy a criminal who should be judged for his role in Libya. Another advantage of Trump: he is detested by the neoconservatives, who are the main architects of the present disaster.”

And then there is Stephen F. Cohen, contributing editor for The Nation and Professor Emeritus of Russian History at Princeton and NYU.  Cohen makes the point that Trump, alone among the presidential candidates, has raised five urgent and fundamental questions, which all other candidates in the major parties have either scorned or more frequently ignored. The five questions all call into question the interventionist warlike stance of the US for the past 20 plus years. Cohen enumerates the questions here, thus:

“Should the United States always be the world’s leader and policeman?

 

“What is NATO’s proper mission today, 25 years after the end of the Soviet Union and when international terrorism is the main threat to the West?

 

“Why does Washington repeatedly pursue a policy of regime change, in Iraq, Libya, possibly in Ukraine, and now in Damascus, even though it always ends in “disaster”?

 

“Why is the United States treating Putin’s Russia as an enemy and not as a security partner?

 

“And should US nuclear weapons doctrine include a no-first use pledge, which it does not?”

Cohen comments in detail on these questions here. Whatever one may think of the answers Trump has provided to the five questions, there is no doubt that he alone among the presidential candidates has raised them – and that in itself is an important contribution.

At this point, I mention my own piece, which appeared late last year.  Entitled “Who is the Arch Racist, Hillary or The Donald”?  Like Cohen’s pieces, it finds merit with the Trump foreign policy in the context of posing a question.

Finally, let us turn to Bill Blum, who wrote an article entitled, “American Exceptionalism and the Election Made in Hell (Or Why I’d Vote for Trump Over Hillary).”  Again there is little doubt about the stance of Blum, who is the author of Killing Hope: U.S. Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II, a scholarly compendium, which Noam Chomsky calls “Far and away the best book on the topic.”

Blum begins his piece:

“If the American presidential election winds up with Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump, and my passport is confiscated, and I’m somehow FORCED to choose one or the other, or I’m PAID to do so, paid well … I would vote for Trump.”

 

“My main concern is foreign policy. American foreign policy is the greatest threat to world peace, prosperity, and the environment. And when it comes to foreign policy, Hillary Clinton is an unholy disaster. From Iraq and Syria to Libya and Honduras the world is a much worse place because of her; so much so that I’d call her a war criminal who should be prosecuted.”

And he concludes:

“He (Trump) calls Iraq ‘a complete disaster’, condemning not only George W. Bush but the neocons who surrounded him. ‘They lied. They said there were weapons of mass destruction and there were none. And they knew there were none. There were no weapons of mass destruction.’ He even questions the idea that ‘Bush kept us safe’, and adds that ‘Whether you like Saddam or not, he used to kill terrorists’.”

“Yes, he’s personally obnoxious. I’d have a very hard time being his friend. Who cares?”

I conclude with Blum’s words because they are most pertinent to our present situation.  The world is living through a perilous time when the likes of the neocons and Hillary Clinton could lead us into a nuclear Armageddon with their belligerence toward Russia and their militaristic confrontation with China.

The reality is that we are faced with a choice between Clinton and Trump, a choice which informs much of the above commentary.  Survival is at stake and we must consider survival first if our judgments are to be sane.

U.S. Exceptionalism and U.S. Global Terror Management Strategy (Part Two)

___screen-shot-09-12-16-at-12-31-amPolish-American political scientist and geostrategist Zbigniew Brzezinski and his monumental geopolitical work:The Grand Chessboard”, is a must read if we want to better understand 21st century U.S. Hegemon Unipolar World priorities. (Former) Imperialist Atlantic Europe (Portugal, Spain, France, Belgium, The Netherlands and Britain) did rule Europe and the world up to the 1870’s until Continental Europe: Italy (grandiose contributor to modern banking system and the Renaissance) and Germany  “showed up”most likely  feeling left out and wanting a piece of the geopolitical pie. In 1879, Germany and Austria-Hungary formed what is known as the Dual Alliance which became the Triple Alliance with the addition of Italy in 1882. In the late second half of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century (1880 — 1910), the German Empire was to become an economic powerhouse: Its economy rivaled and surpassed imperialistic Britain and France:

“The speed of Germany’s advance to industrial maturity after 1890 was breathtaking. The years from 1895 to 1907 witnessed a doubling of the number of workers engaged in machine building, from slightly more than one-half million to well over a million. An immediate consequence of expanding industrial employment was a sharp drop in emigration; from an average of 130,000 people per year in the 1880s, the outflow dropped to 20,000 per year in the mid-1890s. The surplus population continued to leave Prussia’s eastern provinces, but the destination was the growing and multiplying factories of Berlin and the Ruhr rather than the Americas. Earlier British fears of German competition were now fully justified. While Britain produced about twice as much steel as Germany during the early 1870s, Germany’s steel production exceeded Britain’s in 1893, and by 1914 Germany was producing more than twice as much steel as Britain. Moreover, only one-third of German exports in 1873 were finished goods; the portion rose to 63 percent by 1913. Germany came to dominate all the major Continental markets except France.”(Source: Encyclopedia Britannica)

___bpg_screen-shot-09-11-166-at-06-30-pmDue to its unbalance of trade payments towards Germany, Britain got so worried about losing its gold (The British Pound was then backed up by gold) that in 1887, it issued theMade in GermanyMerchandise Marks Act intended at degrading German products as shoddy compared to the renowned “British manufacturing standards” (sic). Obviously the unintended consequence is the fact that “Made in Germany” became, and remains to this very day, a worldwide seal of first class workmanship and quality. Where is the French, British or U.S. equivalent to Audi, Mercedes Benz, Porsche, Volkswagen, BMW (Bayerische Motor Werke) fine German automobiles? Was this one of the reasons why the Washington neocons have lassoed Volkswagen, for a while the first automobile manufacturer in the world, with a 15 billion USD fine and 3.000 of their cars were blown up in the Tianjin catastrophe?

At the turn of the 20th Century, the German Empire (with Austria, Hungary and Italy) had already become a Post-Industrial Revolution threat to Britain and France unchallenged Imperialists powers. I would like to  suggest that this could have been one of the core reasons why France and Britain needed Germany’s destruction (WWI) “once and for all” as stated by the great Sir Winston Churchill:

“You must understand that this war is not against Hitler or National Socialism, but against the strength of the German people, which is to be smashed once and for all, regardless of whether it is in the hands of Hitler or a Jesuit priest.”

___geopolitics_f_bankster_woodrow-wilson

Shortly after the newly (1913) created Private Federal Reserve, thanks to corrupt U.S. President Woodrow Wilson’s acquiescence, much evidence shows that taking down “German strength” could have very well been on the allies’ agenda:

  1. Germany’s industrial power and the talent of its people
  2. Germany not borrowing money from the central banks of England (BoE) or Federal Reserve

___bpg_screen-shot-09-11-166-at-10-31-pmWhat followed Germany’s 1918 defeat was the 11th of November 1919 humiliating Treaty of Versailles inflicted by Imperialists France and Britain (with the help of the U.S.) The combination of Germany’s WWI defeat and the Versailles dictate had just crushed a superb industrial nation by demanding an additional gold ransom (lost between 1871 and 1914 due to France and Britain’s trade unbalance) of 132 billion (gold) mark

“You see, the real value of a conflict, the true value is in the debt that it creates. You control the debt – you control everything. You find this upsetting, yes? But this is the very essence of the banking industry, to make us all – whether we [are] nations or individuals, slaves to debt.”

—Umberto Calvini, from the motion picture: The International (starring Clive Owen as Louis Sallinger and Naomi Watts as Eleanor Whitman.)

After re-entering the geopolitical chessboard in 1871, Germany’s post WWII-partition, into West-Germany or Western Federal Republic of Germany (FRG), and East Germany or German Democratic Republic (GDR), gave the birth to a bipolar world dominated by the United States of America (USA) and the Union of the Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR | CCCP: Сою́з Сове́тских Социалисти́ческих Респу́блик). After the fall of the Soviet Union in December 1991, we returned to a Unipolar world dominated by the United States of America but increasingly challenged by the BRICS nations led by the Double Helix Russia and China.

How is the U.S. profiling and securing its geopolitical, financial and industrial hegemony? What are the main geopolitical “building sites” the United States of America is trying to control and secure right now? We shall begin addressing some of these topics:

  • Controlling the Balkan via NATO-Kosovo territories (Camp Bondsteel)
  • Ukraine:  a fascist coup d’état led by the U.S. and EU
  • Syrian conflict and U.S. gas and crude oil control
  • Qatar vs. Iran: The Sunni—Shiite gas dilemma
  • Destabilization of the Eurasian Balkan

U.S. Exceptionalism and U.S. Global Terror Management Strategy (Part One)

“Supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting.” —Sun Tzu, Chinese general, military strategist and philosopher | 544–496 BC

What has happened to U.S. Exceptionalism? Does it still exist? Is 21st Century USA still “The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave?”

“In its classic forms, American Exceptionalism refers to the special character of the United States as a uniquely free nation based on democratic ideals and personal liberty. Sometimes this special character is inferred from the nature of American political institutions founded in the 1776-89 period–the declaration of independence (1776), revolution (1776-83), constitution (1787).” —Ian Tyrrell

Since the December 1991 fall of the Soviet Union (USSR), we have been leaving in a Unipolar World dominated by a resurging Anglo-American Neo-Conservative leadership: One of the many Khazarian Mafia’s extensions assisted by its own private banking center headquartered in the Financial District of the City of London. Looking into history, one could trace the roots of the most nefarious KM: Khazarian Mafia‘s aspiration all the way back to the Babylonian Empire and its pagan worship that has come down in all sorts of secret societies: Freemasonry, Skull and Bones, Illuminati, The Bohemian Grove’s “Cremation of Care ritual“, held every July in the Redwood Forest outside of San Francisco, California USA, in a 2.700-acre (10.92 km²) privately owned summer camp: Part 1 and Part 2.

One could equate September 11. 2001 to the termination of U.S. democracy as established by the Founding Fathers of the United States of America with its Fourth of July 1776 Declaration of Independence: Thanks to an egregious synthetic terrorist neocon coup d’état on its own American Citizenry.

Since 911, Washington’s worldwide neo conservative destabilization mission is ongoing. “Exceptionalistan” as shrewdly coined by international Brazilian geopolitical analyst Pepe Escobar or the “Empire of Chaos” to-do-list is endless: Kosovo, Afghanistan (FBI cocaine trafficking via Incirlik Turkey and Ramstein Germany NATO airbases), Iraq, Egypt, Iran, Libya, Syria, Ukraine, Macedonia, Georgia, Russia, Venezuela, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Kyrgyzstan part of the soon to be destabilized Eurasian Balkan. In the name of U.S. Unipolar World hegemony: “Color revolutions would never be enough; [US] Exceptionalistan is always on the lookout for major strategic upgrades capable of ensuring perpetual Empire of Chaos hegemony,” Pepe Escobar goes on to say.

___screen-shot-09-07-16-at-06-244-pmHowever, this Anglo-American financial Unipolar World, as we’ve known it since post-WWII 1944 Bretton Woods Conference, is under threat.

BRICS, SCO, AIIB, China’s New Shanghai Gold Exchange, China Financial Future Exchange (CFFEX) and CIPS are all menacing the Anglo-American fiat money USD hegemony (including GBP, EUR and YEN) re-established in 1971, when President Richard Nixon, following General de Gaulle demanding French gold back from the Federal Reserve, unilaterally ended the convertibility of US Dollars to Gold.

Washington’s neocon headquarters have since transformed the United States of America into the world’s largest Terror State, a country which is using God’s blessings promised to Abraham to attack innocent nations (Libya, Afghanistan, Ukraine, Syria to name just a few) on behalf of its Khazarian Neocon Mafia with/via the deployment of synthetic terror, creating new enemies who then must be attacked by the “official” U.S. Pentagon army. All this is being done to allegedly “stop terrorism” and bring “freedom and democracy” to the Middle East and Africa: pure neocon “national socialist” propaganda that reminds us of Third Reich National Sozialismus’ (Nazi). In other words, Neo Conservatism (neocon) is a political euphemistic jargon synonym of Third Reich’sNational Sozialismusor in English: National Socialism.

__usa_f_isis-daesh-terrorism_01For the sake of maintaining its fiat financial USD Unipolar Leadership Status, “Exceptionalistan” is ready to implement whatever nefarious methodology is necessary: Even if terror has to be applied on its own citizenry and snuff out three thousands human lives like it did on September 11th of 2001. A fictitious “terrorist” enemy had just been created out of nothing. After the birth of this new breed of synthetic terrorism, destabilization of whatever country that dared to threaten U.S. and Western geopolitical and geo-financial interests would follow:

  • Iraq: as Sadam Hussein announced in 2000 that Iraqi oil would be traded in EUR instead of USD
  • Libya: as Gaddafi planned to introduce a gold Dinar and thus had to be removed

Initiative such as the BRICS’ and Russia’s De-Dollarization of the world economy is dangerous and taken by the Anglo-American neocons very seriously. As Gerald Celente at Trendsresearch says: “Do you think we [The USA] would be in Iraq if its major export was broccoli?”

Among others, the neo-cons’ methodologies include:

  • Deployment of synthetic terror: New York, September 11. 2001 | Madrid, March 11. 2004 | London July 7. 2005 | Paris November 13. 2015 | Nice 14. July 2016 | Munich July 23. 2016
  • Manufactured wars (Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine)
  • US-Pentagon “official” army fighting CIA narcotic financed Langley mercenaries (ISIS, ISIL, IS, Al Qaeda, Daesh, Al Nusra, Al Nustra, The Islamic State)
  • Color revolutions (Egypt 2008 “Arab Spring” thanks to newly 2006 created social media technology via Twitter propaganda
  • NGOs such as Freedom House innocuously founded in 1941 by Eleanor Roosevelt
  • Weapons of Mass Migration: Germany and Austria being hit the hardest since September 4th 2015
  • Dīvide et īmpera: “divide and conquer” strategy creating ongoing chaos

Western citizenry is to the most part oblivious to what is happening. Main Stream Mass Media Propaganda is crucial in upholding the Western ignorance of a compliant and acquiescent sheeple who has been taken captive by a neocon “liberalism” aimed at enslaving its citizens and destroying the God-ordained family structure, which remains the foundation of a functioning and healthy society.

The Washington rogue régime has turned the table of good and evil upside down: We only have the Word of God left to properly qualify or summarize the level of nefariousness these fascist neocons are inflicting upon their victims. Christof Hörstel from newly created Deutsche Mitte (German Middle) qualifies it as “The Global Chaos Management of the U.S. Government.”

Let’s conclude the indictment of this present nefarious ruling “establishment” and take heed to the wise Words of Almighty God via His (Minor) Prophet Habakkuk:

  • Hab 2:6  Shall not all these take up a parable against him, and a taunting proverb against him, and say, Woe to him that increaseth that which is not his! how long? and to him that ladeth himself with thick clay!
  • Hab 2:7  Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bite thee, and awake that shall vex thee, and thou shalt be for booties unto them?
  • Hab 2:8  Because thou hast spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the people shall spoil thee; because of men’s blood, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein. (KJV: King James Version of the Bible)

Zbigniew Brzezinski on the 15th of July 2016 U.S. Neo Conservative Coup d’État in Turkey

Washington’s Neoconservatives / Neocons (euphemism for national socialists or fascists) will be destroyed by the fact that one of the key U.S. architects of Neo-Conservatism, Zbigniew Brzezinski, recently confirmed the involvement of the United States of America with the 15th of July 2016 Turkish Coup d’état, one day after the bloody 14th of July French Bastille Day in Nice.

Zbigniew Brzeziński: “Précis of my new article to be published in “the-american-interest.com. U.S. role in #Turkey_coup a bad mistake.”

“The U.S. backing of the attempted coup against the Turkish president Reccep Tayyip Erdogan was a grave mistake that could deliver a major blow to the U.S. reputation. Turkey was on the verge of reconsidering its foreign policy after failure in the Syria during the last five years and the US miscalculation in supporting the coup and hosting its leader was so serious that it is no longer possible to put the blame on once US ally Turkey if it turns its back on US and rethink its policies. A potential Russia-Turkey-Iran coalition would creat an opportunity to solve the Syrian crisis. IF Erdogan had the smallest bit of wisdom, he should have come to the understanding that he could not make an independent credibility with the help of the decayed Arab countries.”  —Zbigniew Brzeziński

This Turkish allegiance shift towards Russia and away from NATO and the United States of America makes actually sense when we think about it. Until recently Turkey has been a tenor terror ally to the Washington neocon regime with CIA-made subsidiaries Al-Qaeda, ISIS, IS, ISIL, Daesh, Al-Nustra or The Islamist State: Most terrorists entities are financed and armed by the United States of America and its allies under the CIA directing-baton. Wherever “terrorism” is needed, the Western World (USA, Britain, France, and Israel) will most likely provide support and financing via Saudi Arabia and/or Qatar: The two Sunnite States backing up many nefarious U.S. and Western terrorist “undertakings.”

It is crucial to bear in mind that turkey did not turn towards Russia because of an attempted coup d’état on the 15th of July 2016 but rather to remember that the U.S.-led coup d’état attempt took place because Erdogan turned towards Russia after apologizing for the Russian fighter jet shot down near Turkey-Syria border.

Geopolitics_F_Wordle_01

For the U.S. and NATO this may well be a geopolitical “Berezina.” The U.S. has started transferring its 50 tactical nuclear weapons stationed in Turkey to the Deveselu air base in Romania, against the backdrop of worsening relations between Washington and Ankara. Needless to say the the US-Turkey relations have deteriorated so much following the coup that Washington no longer trusted Ankara to host the weapons thus the move to Deveselu near Caracal in Romania.

Geopolitics_F_Real.Threat.for.EU.peace.USARomania used to be an ally of the Soviet Union during the Cold War, but it never hosted nuclear weapons during that period. Stationing tactical US nuclear weapons close to Russia’s borders is likely to provoke Russia and potentially feed an escalation. The stationing of Russian nuclear missiles in Cuba in 1962 was the closest the Cold War came to escalating into a full-scale nuclear war.

Strong denial by Romania

The Romanian foreign ministry strongly denied the information that the country has become home of US nukes. “In response to your request, Romanian MFA firmly dismisses the information you referred to,”  a spokesperson wrote.

clipboard_12After the failed putsch, relations between Washington and Ankara are at their worst since Turkey joined NATO in 1952. Ankara believes the U.S. government supported the Turkish US-exiled cleric Fethullah Gülen, whom it accuses of having masterminded the failed coup d’état. Turkey is demanding Gülen’s extradition, and the issue was expected to take center stage during US Vice President Joe Biden’s (one of many nefarious vertebrates to befoul the halls of American power) last visit to Turkey on August the 24th.

There was no Turkish acquiescence for Islamist preacher Fetullah Gülen remaining in Pennsylvania. So what is going to happen next? Will Erdogan bow down to fascist Washington rogue régime? Here is the real dichotomy for President Obama and the Washington geopolitical fools: a choice between Fethullah Gülen’s extradition or stand by the CIA’s cover-up.

How the USA Created Al-Qaeda and the ISIS Terror Group

Incisive article originally published by GR in September 2014.  Terror attacks or mass shootings allegedly perpetrated by the ISIS [IS, ISIL, Al Qaeda, Al Nustra, Daesh, The Islamist State] the question that should be asked: who are the State sponsors of  Al Qaeda and ISIS?  (M.Ch. GR Editor).
Geopolitics_F_Wordle_01“Much like Al Qaeda, the Islamic State (ISIS) is made-in-the-USA, an instrument of terror designed to divide and conquer the oil-rich Middle East and to counter Iran’s growing influence in the region.  The fact that the United States has a long and torrid history of backing terrorist groups will surprise only those who watch the news and ignore history.
The CIA first aligned itself with extremist Islam during the Cold War era. Back then, America saw the world in rather simple terms:
  • On one side, the Soviet Union and Third World nationalism, which America regarded as a Soviet tool;
  • On the other side, Western nations and militant political Islam, which America considered an ally in the struggle against the Soviet Union.
The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan, General William Odom recently remarked, ‘by any measure the U.S. has long used terrorism. In 1978-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the U.S. would be in violation.'”
__USA_F_ISIS-DAESH-Terrorism_01During the 1970′s the CIA used the Muslim Brotherhood [A Nazi Fascist group who already had very close ties to the German Third Reich] in Egypt as a barrier, both to thwart Soviet expansion and prevent the spread of Marxist ideology [the very reason why the Khazarian Mafia hired Adolf Hitler in the 1930’s to stop the spread of communism they themselves had exported to Russia via the Bolshevik Revolution] among the Arab masses. The United States also openly supported Sarekat Islam against Sukarno in Indonesia, and supported the Jamaat-e-Islami terror group against Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in Pakistan. Last but certainly not least, there is Al Qaeda.
Al Qaeda a U.S. database of thousands of Islamist extremists
Lest we forget, the CIA gave birth to Osama Bin Laden and breastfed his organization during the 1980′s. Former British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, told the House of Commons that Al Qaeda was unquestionably a product of Western intelligence agencies. Mr. Cook explained that Al Qaeda, which literally means an abbreviation of “the database” in Arabic, was originally the computer database of the thousands of Islamist extremists, who were trained by the CIA and funded by the Saudis, in order to defeat the Russians in Afghanistan.
__USA_F_ISIS-DAESH-Terrorism_02America’s relationship with Al Qaeda has always been a love-hate affair. Depending on whether a particular Al Qaeda terrorist group in a given region furthers American interests or not, the U.S. State Department either funds or aggressively targets that terrorist group. Even as American foreign policy makers claim to oppose Muslim extremism, they knowingly foment it as a weapon of foreign policy. The Islamic State is its latest weapon that, much like Al Qaeda, is certainly backfiring. ISIS recently rose to international prominence after its thugs began beheading American journalists. Now the terrorist group controls an area the size of the United Kingdom.
In order to understand why the Islamic State has grown and flourished so quickly, one has to take a look at the organization’s American-backed roots. The 2003 American invasion and occupation of Iraq created the pre-conditions for radical Sunni groups, like ISIS, to take root. America, rather unwisely, destroyed Saddam Hussein’s secular state machinery and replaced it with a predominantly Shiite administration. The U.S. occupation caused vast unemployment in Sunni areas, by rejecting socialism and closing down factories in the naive hope that the magical hand of the free market would create jobs. Under the new U.S.-backed Shiite regime, working class Sunni’s lost hundreds of thousands of jobs. Unlike the white Afrikaners in South Africa, who were allowed to keep their wealth after regime change, upper class Sunni’s were systematically dispossessed of their assets and lost their political influence. Rather than promoting religious integration and unity,
American policy in Iraq exacerbated sectarian divisions and created a fertile breading ground for Sunni discontent, from which Al Qaeda in Iraq took root.
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) used to have a different name: Al Qaeda in Iraq. After 2010 the group re-branded and refocused its efforts on Syria.
There are essentially three wars being waged in Syria:
  • One between the government and the rebels
  • Another between Iran and Saudi Arabia
  • And yet another between America and Russia
__USA_F_ISIS-DAESH-TerrorismIt is this third, neo-Cold War battle that made U.S. foreign policy makers decide to take the risk of arming Islamist rebels in Syria, because Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad, is a key Russian ally. Rather embarrassingly, many of these Syrian rebels have now turned out to be ISIS thugs, who are openly brandishing American-made M16 Assault rifles.

America’s Middle East policy revolves around oil and Israel. The invasion of Iraq has partially satisfied Washington’s thirst for oil, but ongoing air strikes in Syria and economic sanctions on Iran have everything to do with Israel. The goal is to deprive Israel’s neighboring enemies, Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Palestine’s Hamas, of crucial Syrian and Iranian support.

ISIS is not merely an instrument of terror used by America to topple the Syrian government; it is also used to put pressure on Iran.

The last time Iran invaded another nation was in 1738. Since independence in 1776, the U.S. has been engaged in over 53 military invasions and expeditions. Despite what the Western media’s war cries would have you believe, Iran is clearly not the threat to regional security, Washington is. An Intelligence Report published in 2012, endorsed by all sixteen U.S. intelligence agencies, confirms that Iran ended its nuclear weapons program in 2003. Truth is, any Iranian nuclear ambition, real or imagined, is as a result of American hostility towards Iran, and not the other way around.

America is using ISIS in three ways:
  • To attack its enemies in the Middle East,
  • To serve as a pretext for U.S. military intervention abroad,
  • And at home to foment a manufactured domestic threat, used to justify the unprecedented expansion of invasive domestic surveillance.
By rapidly increasing both government secrecy and surveillance, Mr. Obama’s government is increasing its power to watch its citizens, while diminishing its citizens’ power to watch their government. Terrorism is an excuse to justify mass surveillance, in preparation for mass revoltThe so-called “War on Terror” should be seen for what it really is: a pretext for maintaining a dangerously oversized U.S. military. The two most powerful groups in the U.S. foreign policy establishment are:
  • The Israel lobby, which directs U.S. Middle East policy
  • The Military-Industrial-Complex, which profits from the former group’s actions
Geopolitics_F_Wordle_02Since George W. Bush declared the “War on Terror” in October 2001, it has cost the American taxpayer approximately 6.6 trillion dollars and thousands of fallen sons and daughters; but, the wars have also raked in billions of dollars for Washington’s military elite. In fact, more than seventy American companies and individuals have won up to $27 billion in contracts for work in postwar Iraq and Afghanistan over the last three years, according to a recent study by the Center for Public Integrity. According to the study, nearly 75 per cent of these private companies had employees or board members, who either served in, or had close ties to, the executive branch of the Republican and Democratic administrations, members of Congress, or the highest levels of the military.
In 1997, a U.S. Department of Defense report stated, “the data show a strong correlation between U.S. involvement abroad and an increase in terrorist attacks against the U.S.” Truth is, the only way America can win the “War On Terror” is if it stops giving terrorists the motivation and the resources to attack America. Terrorism is the symptom; American imperialism in the Middle East is the cancer.
Put simply, the War on Terror is terrorism; only, it is conducted on a much larger scale by people with jets and missiles.
