Target China

A deeper look: The globalist blitzkrieg's final destination is Beijing.
by Tony Cartalucci

Far from the Founding Father's ideal representative republic, China has garnered a reputation as one of the most repressive regimes on earth. While some of this is well earned, much of it is due to the unsavory legacy left by Mao's "Great Leap Forward" which to this day is still being carefully and systematically dismantled. Another large factor at play is the entirely disingenuous and very much hypocritical campaign the Western corporate-financier oligarchy has waged against the 1.3 billion strong nation.

champions of human rights within the US government.

While lofty, poorly articulated ideals like "democracy" and "freedom" are used by the West as leverage to divide and weaken the nation, real affronts to human rights and freedom, such as China's "one-child policy" or the exploitation of labor are either ignored or wildly applauded by the West. In one New York Times op-ed by US Representative James Scheuer titled, "America, the U.N. and China's Family Planning," Scheuer states:

"China's approach to family planning may seem foreign to Western traditions, but that is natural considering that China's whole culture is vastly different from ours. The Chinese program relies on an incessant drumbeat of persuasion and peer pressure, which is undergirded by individuals' sense of responsibility to society and family, which supersedes any perception they may have of their own personal rights."

In other words, Scheuer is justifying not only usurping human rights, but the article goes on to reveal, he is also defending the 36 million dollars the US funds the UN in assisting nations like China to enforce such policies. Scheuer, in the truly intellectually bankrupt tradition of Malthusians everywhere, would go on to state that overpopulation was causing disease and poverty in nations like Haiti and throughout Africa - willfully ignorant of the fact that education and technology are actually the missing ingredients.

Leveraging "Human Rights"

The hypocrisy doesn't end there. The corporate-financier run Western media has been recently beating their chests over the imprisonment of Nobel Laureate and "human rights activist" Liu Xiaobo, a proponent of ending China's strong central government and politically active military in favor of a weak, Western-style system run by corruptible, feckless, incompetent leadership that invites multinational corporations to entropically infest state institutions and seize control of the nation's people and resources. Liu Xiaobo's support goes beyond the media's scornful chastisement of China's government on his behalf, and includes "pro-bono" legal aid from the Council on Foreign Relations lined "Freedom Now" organization. Readers may remember "Freedom Now" from their extensive involvement in supporting the Syrian opposition leading the recent unrest against the Assad government.

Freedom Now is also providing legal services for Gao Zhisheng, a human rights lawyer also imprisoned in China. Gao had written an open letter to the US Congress detailing human rights violations in China, and his family currently resides in the United States. Council on Foreign Relations minion Jerome Cohen, Canadian MP Irwin Cotler, and former Canadian MP David Kilgour are personally leading the campaigns for both Liu Ziaobo and Gao Zhisheng. All three, are also involved in meddling around the globe in similarly hypocritical gambits revolving around "human rights activists" who just so happen to be fighting governments the West would like to see changed.

While it may seem noble to champion for human rights, it is a matter of fact that men like Cohen, Cotler, and Kilgour, and the entire Freedom Now organization along with the CFR that populates its membership and the foundations that fund it, are amongst the greatest enemies of human rights and human freedom on earth. The Council on Foreign Relations has tirelessly repeated its goal of establishing a one world government, with members working ceaselessly to achieve it and their publications over the decades perpetually reflecting this ambition. This is a world government that is of, by, and for the corporate-financier oligarchy's interests, and their interests alone.

This gambit of leveraging the issue of human rights for geopolitical gain is clearly illustrated in another pertinent example, directly related to China's present predicament. Globalist lawyer and lobbyist Robert Amsterdam, of the Chatham House's Amsterdam & Peroff is currently cultivating two other clients as points of leverage.

From "Globalist Page: Robert Amsterdam:"

His [Amsterdam's] two most recent and perhaps most notorious cases involve one a Russian oligarch named Mikhail Khodorkovsky, and a Thai police colonel-turned-billionaire tycoon Thaksin Shinawatra. Khodorkovsky is guilty and indeed sitting in a Siberian prison for embezzling billions. His Thai counterpart, Thaksin, also has two years coming to him for immense fraud. And while both are being defended by Amsterdam as "political victims" what is never mentioned, indeed buried deeply are the extra-legal, meddling affiliations both men have with the globocratic elite that undermine their political aspirations with megalithic, even treasonous conflicts of interest.

Accomplished researcher,
William Engdahl, points out some very alarming connections and trends that served as the real basis for Khodorkovsky's current Siberian lodging. It seems that Khodorkovsky wasn't just embezzling money or involved in breathtaking displays of corruption, such was the nature of the times he came into power. It was rather his connections with the West, in particular Henry Kissinger and "Lord" Jacob Rothschild who were sitting on what Engdahl calls a George Soros Open Society-styled "Open Russian Foundation."

Worth repeating indefinitely, is the role these "foundations" and the networks of
meddlesome NGOs they maintain play as the next greatest threat to national sovereignty behind invading armies and the IMF's economic hitmen.

Using both his wealth and his Western organized NGO networks, Khodorkovsky set out on an ambitious political campaign to seize for himself the Russian presidency from which he would undoubtedly repay his foreign backers with the economic liberalization (read: sellout) of the Russian Federation.

With uncanny exactitude, Thaksin Shinwatra attempted the same "soft-coup" in Thailand. He was a
Carlyle Group adviser while holding office in then PM Chavalit's New Aspiration Party which oversaw the 1997 IMF's intrusion and controlled economic implosion of the Thai economy. He would later become PM himself in 2001 and through wealth procured through similarly fraudulent, though not unprecedented means, he began consolidating power, eliminating checks and balances, and preparing the liberalization of the Thai economy on behalf of his foreign backers. On the eve of the military coup that overthrew his government, he was literally standing in New York City giving a progress report to the Council on Foreign Relations.

Since his ouster from power, he has been backed by fellow Carlyle man James Baker and his
Baker Botts law firm, International Crisis Group's Kenneth Adelman and his Edelman Public Relations firm, and now Robert Amsterdam's Amsterdam & Peroff. His proxy political party maintains a "people's power" organization supported by several National Endowment for Democracy NGOs including "Prachatai," an "independent media organization" that coordinates the "people's power" propaganda efforts.

In both Khordovsky's and Thaksin's case we come back to Robert Amsterdam, who now concurrently meddles in both Russian and Thai affairs using these two overtly mired convicted criminals as leverage to push not only the legal cases for which he is responsible, but the continuation of his clients' political objectives of undermining Russia's and Thailand's establishments, which in turn represent the continuation of the "globocrats'" agenda.

While Russia possesses the intelligence and military apparatuses to suppress significant internal unrest caused by Western backed NGOs and the continued and now lost cause of Khordovsky, the perceived "injustice" Robert Amsterdam accuses Russia of gives the West the moral high-ground to meddle in Russia's surrounding geography, notably color revolutions, NATO expansion, and political destabilization in Eastern Europe.

Robert Amsterdam is also attempting to lend Thaksin Shinawatra and his organized mob the same credibility and moral high-ground ahead of yet another attempted overthrow of the Thai government this coming spring. While even Thaksin's mob leaders themselves have
admitted on numerous occasions to having armed men involved in the bloodbath that ensued in 2010, Robert Amsterdam is now releasing a report that retroactively rewrites history and absolves them of their admissions. He also misses no opportunity to not only defend his "clients" (he also concurrently defends Thaksin's "red" mob) but calls on the Thai government to resign, as per the globocrat's aspirations of regime change and the subsequent economic liberalization under the re-installed Thaksin regime.

This then, is the same gambit being played out in China. Russia is being targeted as the other significant partner in the Shanghai Cooperative which is the focal point of the West's foreign ambitions, from which all other geopolitical policy is driven. Thailand of course constitutes part of China's so-called "String of Pearls," or one of many nations that reside in China's potential sphere of influence as it rises to power. Enticing nations like Thailand to remain aligned to the West has long since failed and a more aggressive and robust response has been formulated, namely color revolution leading to regime change. The West however, may just as well settle for perpetual destabilization to balk China's rise.

String of Pearls: Encircling China

The term "String of Pearls" is taken from the 2006 Strategic Studies Institute's report "String of Pearls: Meeting the Challenge of China's Rising Power across the Asian Littoral." Throughout the report, China's efforts to secure its oil lifeline from the Middle East to its shores in the South China Sea are examined as are means to maintain American hegemony throughout the Indian and Pacific Ocean. The premise is that, should Western policy wonks and paper-pushers fail to entice China into participating in the "international system" as responsible stakeholders (fall in line,) an increasingly confrontational posture must be taken to contain the rising nation.

It also represents a region now mired in US-backed chaos.

Looking at events today, it appears that enticement has failed, and that the worst case scenarios discussed within the report have not only been put into play, but have thus far proven ineffective. Understanding this report and superimposing its implications upon a global map of today's conflicts, we see a nearly perfect match.

Middle East: Destabilization efforts and regime change in the Middle East headed by the US State Department aim at controlling and disrupting China's oil supply. We have seen how the transformation of the Middle East was meticulously planned and entirely coordinated by the West, despite claims that it was spontaneous. With the revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt now on record having been supported and funded by the US State Department, and with the State Department now openly funding organizations like the BBC to "combat" Chinese censorship, the failed Chinese "Jasmine Revolution" appears to be more of a poorly veiled attack on China than an uprising of the people.

Though the "Jasmine Revolution" in China was a failure, the now more forceful reordering of the Arab world is setting the stage for the elimination of Iran, after which China and Russia will be further isolated, and further "encircled."

Pakistan: In building China's presence throughout Asia, cooperation with emerging giants like India and the populous Pakistan is in its best interest. So is stability. In order to shorten the trip oil must take to reach China, a transit corridor through Pakistan has been devised and a naval base constructed in Gwadar in Pakistan's southwest Baluchistan province.

China's holdings in Baluchistan have been under constant threat by both internal meddling by the US in Pakistan itself and on the borders of Baluchistan as part of the 10 year military occupation of Afghanistan, particularly the Helmand and Kandahar provinces which border Baluchistan. The globalist "National Interest" magazine published a February 2011 article titled "Free Baluchistan" which openly called for carving Baluchistan out of Pakistan:

"Most important, it [the United States] should aid the 6 million Baluch insurgents fighting for independence from Pakistan in the face of growing ISI repression. Pakistan has given China a base at Gwadar in the heart of Baluch territory. So an independent Baluchistan would serve U.S. strategic interests in addition to the immediate goal of countering Islamist forces."

Such irresponsible statements coming from the real authors of US foreign policy should be taken as a serious threat by both the Pakistani and Chinese governments. It should be no surprise that these "Baluch insurgents" are being employed across the border in Iran as well.

The same author, Selig Harrison of the foundation-funded Center for International Policy, elaborated further on Pakistani-Chinese relations in a recent March 2011 article titled "The Chinese Cozy Up to the Pakistanis." In it is described the joint development of Pakistan's northern Gilgit-Baltistan region and its forming of a gateway into Chinese territory. While Harrison is able to enumerate an impressive list of benefits both nations are reaping from this relationship, all he is able to offer as a possible US response is the reiteration of starting a full-blown insurrection within Baluchistan:

"To counter what China is doing in Pakistan, the United States should play hardball by supporting the movement for an independent Baluchistan along the Arabian Sea and working with Baluch insurgents to oust the Chinese from their budding naval base at Gwadar. Beijing wants its inroads into Gilgit and Baltistan to be the first step on its way to an Arabian Sea outlet at Gwadar."

In reading the piece, we see another example of leveraging human rights, with Harrison shamelessly able to go from openly admitting to using the Baluch insurgents in a bid to expel the Chinese, to citing Amnesty International and humanitarian concerns as a proposed narrative for justifying US involvement. This is a familiar globalist ploy, and one that is playing out in Libya under UNSC r.1973.

Southeast Asia: China has been developing infrastructure throughout Southeast Asia as well in a bid to create multiple avenues to and from its territory. In Myanmar (Burma) they are developing a deep sea port, an oil pipeline and a highway network that runs from the Bay of Bengal to the Myanmar-China border in the north. The Chinese in 2008 completed a large highway project through the mountainous terrain of Laos, connecting Kunming, China with northeast Thailand. China, Laos, and Thailand are now developing plans to create a high speed rail link between the 3 nations which would ultimately connect China to Singapore.

The West in response to China's growing influence in the region has deferred to the "String of Pearls" strategy and is attempting to contain China by fostering instability in both Myanmar and Thailand. This attempts to install servile, pro-Western regimes and by doing so, the globalists would be able to sever China's newly proposed links and force it to continue relying on the Malacca Strait.

In Myanmar, another Nobel Laureate, Aung San Suu Kyi, has been leading the opposition and has garnered support from every globalist cadre, think-tank, and organization imaginable. She was a finalist in the Chatham House Prize 2011, and not surprisingly a benefactor of Freedom Now's services as well. Aung San Suu herself, was born into an immensely wealthy and politically well connected family. She studied abroad, worked for the UN in New York City, and received a Ph.D from the University of London before returning to Myanmar to lead the "pro-democracy" movement. Whatever her convictions may really be, the West has fully hijacked her movement as a means of removing the current military junta and replacing it with one more conducive to their corporate agenda, which most assuredly has nothing to do with "democracy for the people."

Knowingly or unknowingly serving the globalist agenda since
1972, Aung San Suu Kyi now leads the Western-
backed opposition
bidding to oust Myanmar's ruling regime.

In 2007 there was the so-called "Saffron Revolution," made a spectacle by the corporate-owned media, but gained little ground. Despite the rhetoric, the artificial aura of credibility and heroism built-up around yet another Nobel Peace Prize wearing crowbar trying to pry out another obstacle of globalization, China's heavily invested presence inside Myanmar makes the prospect of regime change highly unlikely.

In Thailand the globalist tool of choice is Thaksin Shinwatra and his "red shirt" color revolution. He and his Western backers have attempted twice, in 2009 and 2010 to overthrow the Thai government with increasingly violent street mobs. This year, a combination of mob leaders being released from prison, the announcement of upcoming elections, and a "convenient" border skirmish with neighboring Cambodia, has taken the wind from the "red" mobs' sails. Likely wanting to ride the wave of destabilization in the Arab world, they now lack both credibility and any conceivable justification to come out into the streets.

"The giant wave of democracy, from Tunisia to Thailand" says
the globalist-backed red shirt propaganda. Thaksin's "red shirts"
hoped to ride that wave back into political power. (photo:

Thailand has also been deepening its ties with China and distancing itself from the West. Repeated rows between the US and the Thai government over intellectual property rights along with the proposal of Tobin taxes aimed squarely at the unraveling international bankers residing in London and on Wall Street all but ensures this chasm widens further.

To a lesser extent, the US has been competing with China in countries like Cambodia, where free-market payoffs and military aid is offered by America while mega-infrastructure projects like rail and dams are on offer from China. Cambodian strongman Hun Sen must be looking at the Middle East with the realization that he is an endangered species and that no amount of appeasement will ultimately save him from globalization. And appease the globalists he has. Nearly 50% of Cambodia's landmass has been sold to foreign investors and at a great humanitarian cost. While the Western media has been wringing its hands over Libya and Syria, it has barely mentioned at all the misdeeds of Cambodia's Hun Sen against his own people. With Hun Sen recently leaning toward China, this corporate media self-censorship may not last long.

Dr. Webster Tarpley breaks down the history and reality surrounding
the personality cult of the "Dali Lama." The Tibetan movement has
received significant US aid, including clandestine CIA backing over the years.

In several instances, these efforts to destabilize China's peripheries cross over into China itself. Tibet has long been a point of leverage against Beijing, combining nearly ever trick in the globalists' book from the Nobel Laureate Dali Lama complete with his own Hollywood-made personality cult, to human rights cases, to arming and backing sedition and unrest throughout the region.


Of course, by offering China a commanding role in the emerging "international system" it is hoped that given enough coercive pressure it will acquiesce in becoming a "responsible stakeholder." As we see on a smaller scale in Libya, pressure, both militarily and economically, aims at causing divides within any given regime in hopes that enough support can be extorted to effect the globalists' desired changes. Reports like the Brookings Institute's "The Advantages of an Assertive China: Responding to Beijing's Abrasive Diplomacy" says as much in regards to prodding and leading China along.

Disrupting China's oil supply, encircling them with a wave of destabilization along with stoking domestic tension internally, all aims at frustrating their ambitions as a sovereign nation while creating a viable combine of defectors solely interested in their self-preservation. This combine can then effectively steer China toward servile obedience within the globalists' unipolar "international system." It is a delicate balance of both pressure and enticement, constantly refined and adjusted, simultaneously applied and systematically monitored.

As more pressure is overtly applied on China, via the brazen "Jasmine Revolution" and increasingly aggressive destabilization efforts around China's borders and throughout the Arab world where it receives the majority of its oil imports, it appears that the regime has weighed the empty promises and paper empire of the globalists against the 1.3 billion people of China who demand pragmatic, not political solutions to their immediate problems. Most certainly, these 1.3 billion people pose a more immediate threat to the survival of the Chinese ruling regime.

Meeting these demands is done via industry, education, technology, and tangible progress. Policies, including the "one child policy" glowingly appraised by US Representative Scheuer, is an invasive, unpopular measure that is unsustainable and only partially addresses concerns like pollution and poverty. It is also a policy the Chinese government is in the process of rolling back.

As the globalists build financial networks of fiat paper, the Chinese are building networks of high-speed rail throughout their nation and beyond their borders. They are building real, tangible infrastructure from neighboring Laos to the continent of Africa. What possible incentive besides the threat of chaos and upheaval can the West offer China and its "String of Pearls" that solves both the immediate problem of self-preservation of regimes and the multitude of problems of the people under these regimes?

The West's ineptitude is not wholly unprecedented in history. Many empires have been buried by this sort of degenerate, runaway greed exhibited by the globalist corporate-financier oligarchies - often times replaced by a more pragmatic, constructive power like China. However, it is not beyond the realm of possibility that a certain "strategy of tension" is at play, where a purposefully oafish and aggressive West drives and unifies the otherwise fiercely independent nations of Asia and the Shanghai Cooperative together, only to be folded into the global government at a later time.

Particularly in Southeast Asia, much of China's development is being coordinated by the suspiciously globalist "ASEAN" organization. Not only does ASEAN closely resemble other institutes of the West's unipolar model of globalization, but it interfaces with it seamlessly, with many of its greatest proponents being unabashed members of the Western globalist elite.

While rail-links, highways, and infrastructure that mutually benefit participating nations are not necessarily a bad thing, some of the free-trade agreements proposed and pushed through by China are nearly as one-sided and damaging as any US FTA. Foreign ownership laws may not have been changed by these Chinese FTA's, but ASEAN seeks to collectively lower such barriers by 2015.

China should not be looked to as a hero to rescue nations from the creep of the globalist corporate-financier oligarchs. While China may really be battling these oligarchs today, uniting under an analogous model of world government vis-a-vis the Washington consensus only makes it that much easier for the globalists to absorb a larger prize should China fail, or should the Chinese have already agreed to "responsible stakeholding" behind closed doors.

China's real affronts to humanity must be continuously exposed and cited as failures, and efforts to move away from grotesque and invasive policies like population control and social engineering should be encouraged and cited as real progress. So too should China's current stance of across-the-board non-interference within the borders of other nations. Similarly, its current dedication to solving problems with technical, pragmatic solutions involving technology, education, and expanding superior infrastructure should also be encouraged and cited as a viable model of progress.

Ultimately, whatever the end game may be, personal and local independence along with a paradigm shift away from centralized governance and corporate domination can ensure globalism by any name does not prevail. We must commit ourselves to an effort to make real freedom, real progress, and national sovereignty the global consensus, not the morally bankrupt, interdependent, antiquated, and degenerate policies of world governance - regardless of who it supposedly falls under, the West or Asia.

Elliott Abrams' Plan For Syria

by Tony Cartalucci

Degenerate globalist co-conspirator Elliott Abrams, has been consistently supporting the recent conflagration throughout the Arab world and is pushing for ever-expanding US meddling in the region. In his recent piece, featured in the Washington Post titled "Ridding Syria of a Despot," he fleshes out what is a fairly predictable plan of action already taking shape against the Bush-era "Axis of Evil" member.

Elliott Abrams is a member of the corporate-financier Council on Foreign Relations, a Project for a New American Century signatory, and former deputy national security adviser to President George W. Bush. He was convicted for his involvement in the Iran-Contra conspiracy and promptly pardoned by George Bush Sr. He would later go on to be implicated for his involvement in the 2002 Venezuela coup attempt against Hugo Chavez. His history of betraying and disgracing his country, and getting away with it, is probably why he feels perfectly comfortable making broad, sweeping threats toward entire nations today.

Elliott Abrams recently issued a personal threat to Libya's Qadaffi and his intelligence chief, stating that they would both meet the "same fate as Saddam Hussein" if any American is attacked in the wake of increasing US threats and actions against Libya. He also had weighed in on Egypt in his piece "Less 'Engagement,' More Democracy" in the New York Times. In this piece he criticizes the current policy of engaging as equals with nations he deems as repressive regimes and calls for a revisit to George Bush's "freedom agenda." In other words - the export of "democracy" that has brought America the trillion dollar military adventures in Iraq, Afghanistan, and now Libya at the cost of thousands of US soldiers' lives and the lives of millions of foreigners killed, maimed, or displaced.

It should be no surprise then that Abrams, who has never shouldered a rifle for his nation himself, is more than eager to move on to Syria with a myriad of aggressive attacks on its sovereignty prepared and ready in hand.

Abrams calls on the White House and Congress to condemn Syria, in particular the Assad government. He suggests that Syria be immediately brought before the UN Security Council, who just recently finished extra-legally ordaining the war with Libya. The Human Rights Council and the International Criminal Court are also mentioned as possible avenues to pressure Assad and the Syrian government.

Regarding the newly US-reordered Tunisia and Egypt, Abrams suggests they convene the Arab League and expell Syria as a member, as he claims they just did to Libya. Abrams' suggestion echos fellow globalist policy wonk Kenneth Pollack's proposal in his Brookings Institutes report, "Bifurcating the Middle East." Bifurcate, meaning to "divide," indicates the classic gambit of divide and conquer is in play. Pollack, like Abrams, suggests that the "Arab street" after being "reformed" be rallied against states like Libya, Syria, and of course, Iran.

Abrams also suggests that Europe begin acting against Syria. Nicolas Sarkozy of France seems to have gotten the memo and is already making lofty threats toward Syria, including threats of military action, citing the ongoing atrocity in Libya as a stern warning for other Arab nations to consider. Sanctions are also being pushed by Abrams, but to what extent the Europeans are willing to carry them out remains to be seen.

Finally, Abrams suggests that the US pull its ambassador from Syria, reiterating his belief that it was a mistake in the first place to show this token sign of mutual respect for the sovereign nation. He concludes with a breathtakingly absurd display of patriotism and propaganda by stating, "Our principles alone should lead us to this position, but the memory of thousands of American soldiers killed in Iraq with the help of the Assad regime demands that we do all we can to help the Syrian people free themselves of that evil dictatorship." And help the US is, with the entire opposition being funded, defended, supported, and even partially based out of the United States and England.

Strange that Abrams has implicated Assad as complicit in killing US troops in Iraq, when Abrams himself and his "Neo-Con" cabal have hands-down done more to send US troops off to their needless deaths with their willful lying regarding WMD's, than any Arab with a Kalashnikov. Also interesting, considering his statement, is Abrams' support for the armed campaign in Libya, where the US is currently providing air support and arms for Al Qaeda linked rebels who themselves have sent fighters to Iraq to kill American troops, on record.

Of course, Abrams is writing for the impressionable readership of the Washington Post, so this blinding hypocrisy is most likely fodder strictly for the public's consumption. However, sweeping aside the propaganda, we see a very real strategy already beginning to play out in regards to Syria. Let us remember that this is already a plan in motion, and recognize the surprise displayed by our feckless "leadership" as the poorly-feigned act that it is.

Libya: War for World Government

by Tony Cartalucci

"It is a test that the international community has to pass. Failure would shake further the faith of the people's region in the emerging international order and the primacy of international law."

Brookings Institute's "Libya's Test of the New International Order," February 2011.

The media expects you to believe placard waving peaceful demonstrators have somehow, in just days, transitioned
tank driving, jet flying rebel forces - just like in Hollywood.

While a parade of politicians and pundits cite the "international community," the UN, and the "Arab street" as giving them the justification to not only wage illegal war on Libya, but to threaten illegal war against Syria as well, it should be remembered that it was neither the UN nor the "international community" that laid the ground work for this campaign.

What started out, supposedly, as spontaneous, simultaneous uprisings across the Middle East, has transformed clearly into an aggressive Western-backed blitzkrieg of destabilization and regime change. This was a plan that was years in the making, talked about in 2007 by then, presidential hopeful, CFR member, and International Crisis Group trustee Wesley Clark.

As hard as our "leadership" tries to act surprised, the current
Middle Eastern conflagration has been years in the making.

We now know that the protesters from Tunisia to Egypt had been trained by US created and funded CANVAS of Serbia. We have learned that the US State Department openly admits to providing funding to tech firms to assist protesters across the Middle East and Northern Africa to circumvent cyber-security inside target nations. Perhaps most alarming of all, we now know that the US State Department is also funding corporations like BBC to undermine the governments of China and Iran, revealing the full-scope of their ambitions.

The "international community" that feckless stooges like Joe Lieberman talk about, or his French equal in impotency, Nicolas Sarkozy's "new post-UNSC 1973 model of world governance" are concepts not born of these "elected representatives," but rather the product of the corporate think-tanks that hand them their talking points. It is the corporate-financier oligarchy that constitutes the "international community" and who aspires to rule through "world governance." Their goal is to eliminate national sovereignty and assert their agenda and the laws & regulations to achieve it homogeneously across all national borders.

To see who Lieberman and Sarkozy are channeling, we look to the Brookings Institute report "Libya's Test of the New International Order" back in February 2011. In it, it talks about the primacy of international law over national sovereignty and considered it being at stake in Libya. Allowing Libya to defy the "international community," they worried, could ultimately threaten its "resolve and credibility."

Another telling Brookings Institute report, "Bifurcating the Middle East," mentions rallying "the Arab street" to confront defiant states like Libya, Syria, and Iran, all of which are mentioned by name. Nowhere was oil mentioned, nor the tremendous profits defense contractors would surely reap, and while these are primary motivators to garner support for the regional campaign within the corporate combine, they are by no means the primary motivators for the campaign itself. The final goal is world government, the elimination of borders, and a monopolistic corporate-financier cartel that can systematically eliminate all challenges to its hegemony - in other words, the dream of all oligarchs since the beginning of time.

In Syria, resistance to the Western-backed opposition is a similar direct challenge to the corporate-financier oligarchs. Nations like Syria, Iran, Libya, Burma, Belarus, and many others are demonized and systematically isolated and undermined not because they are a threat to the world, but because their independence and refusal to acquiesce is an obstacle before a corporate-financier ruled world government.

We are given childish explanations that prey on the most ignorant and feeble of minds as to why we are fighting in Libya, and why we are threatening war with Syria and Iran. Nowhere in Lieberman or Sarkozy's ranting statements is talk of who these rebels are; that they've been fighting on and off against Qaddafi for nearly three decades with US help, that their opposition is based in London and the United States, and that they have overt ties to Al-Qaeda, with rebel leaders themselves openly admitting their affiliations to the terrorist group. We are now told that recently returning to Libya to lead the rebels is Khalifa Hifter, who has spent the last 20 years in "suburban Virginia," and has spent his time in America lending support to anti-Qaddafi groups.

After fighting a decade in Afghanistan and Iraq at the cost of nearly 6,000 US lives, supposedly to stop the ubiquitous "Al Qaeda," an organization the US itself created in the mountains of Afghanistan in the 1980's to fight the Soviets, we have come full circle, with CIA/Al-Qaeda assets fighting side-by-side in Libya, complete with US air support.

Do regular folks forget that Syria was mentioned as part of George Bush's "Axis of Evil" and that Obama is merely carrying on a continuous agenda that has transcended administrations up to this very day? Considering the agenda revealed by Wesley Clark in 2007, we see how seamlessly "Obama's war" against Libya fits in. If we are to believe Obama and Bush are ideological opposites, what other explanation can be given as to why this agenda, scorned by the political left under Bush, has now found a new home in Obama's administration?

Quite clearly politics in America is but a mere illusion. So to is the "War on Terror," as the US helps Al-Qaeda sweep westward towards Tripoli. It is all empty rhetoric carrying the agenda of global government forward. Despite losing nearly 6,000 of their brothers in arms, the US military carries on, following orders despite the absolute, overt absurdity of their mission. They are literally providing air support now for the men that helped send their buddies back in pine boxes from Iraq. They do this while the media that lied them into a decade of war now celebrates their enemy, these rebels of Benghazi, as heroes of democracy. Again - we come full circle as the Mujaheddin fighting the Soviets were once "heroes" of the West as well.

None of this makes any sense from the political left or right perspective. None of this makes sense from a West versus "Muslim extremist" perspective. The only perspective from which it makes sense, is if a cartel of corporations has been lying to us all along, saying anything and everything to get us to jump through the appropriate hoops. With their plans becoming bolder, perhaps even desperate, they have begun to mix up their narratives to the extent that they are bombing "Al Qaeda" in Pakistan and giving "Al Qeada" air support in Libya. They are admittedly strafing civilians from the air in Pakistan, but imposing no fly zones on Qaddafi over unverified claims of doing the same.

As the globalists admittedly strafe civilians in Afghanistan and
Pakistan, they have lobbied for war with Libya over verified lies
of doing the same.

Indeed, this is not a war of America, the UN, NATO, or the European Union. The feckless politicians that pose as our leadership are merely taking orders from the powers that be - the corporate-financier oligarchs. If we are to frustrate these oligarchs, we would be wise to waste little time on their front men and instead get straight to the issue. Boycott these corporations and systematically replace them on a local level. While they wage war to eliminate the nation state, from its borders down to our own individual rights and liberties, we must wage a campaign to undermine and eliminate them, from their crass consumerist networks that infest our towns, to the parasitic monstrosity that is the international banking system which infests this planet.

While they must wage their battle through murder, lies, and deceit, we must wage our battle through constructive pragmatic solutions, ingenuity, hard work, community, and self-sufficiency. This is not a war for Libya - this is a war for world government, that if won by the globalists, means our defeat as well.

When Does a Nuclear Disaster End? Never.

Horizon - Inside Chernobyl's Sarcophagus

Forward by Tony Cartalucci:

Those who think Japan's Fukushima disaster is today's headlines and tomorrow's history need to take a good look at the Chernobyl disaster, which to this day is a continuing threat to the people of Ukraine. It will be hundreds of years before the area around the destroyed reactor is inhabitable again and there are disputes over whether or not Chernobyl's nuclear fuel still poses a threat of causing another explosion. There is also a teetering reactor core cover and the deteriorating sarcophagus itself that may collapse and send plumes of radioactive dust in all directions.

The deteriorating "sarcophagus" containment building at Chernobyl.

The New York Times article "Lessons from Chernobyl for Japan," reflects on the Chernobyl disaster and how its legacy still looms over us today as a very real threat. Those who believe in a quick fix for the Fukushima disaster would be wise to remember Chernobyl's legacy. More importantly, with tens of millions of lives at stake, nation actors that have the ability to assist in mitigating this disaster now, but choose instead to squander their manpower and resources elsewhere (like in Libya), must remember that their actions today will be remembered and judged for centuries to come.

Below is a sobering look at the Chernobyl disaster and the many men who fought and died trying to contain it. There is also the little known tale of the scientists who over the years have risked their lives to assess and direct the management of the threat Chernobyl's destroyed reactor continuously poses. We must look to history and take the catastrophic effects of Chernobyl's disaster to heart. Downplaying the threat in Fukushima, Japan today needlessly puts millions of people at risk who might otherwise begin making preparations to leave the area on a long-term basis.

Knowledge is power, ignorance can literally be death.

Egypt: Wikileaks to the Rescue

by Tony Cartalucci

The "barrier of legitimacy" is broken: a mob shouts "American agent"
as they hurl rocks at ElBaradei
who most certainly is an American agent
- a
trustee of the US International Crisis Group alongside George Soros.

Once again, Wikileaks provides suspiciously timed help for a globalist in need. Mohamed ElBaradei, US International Crisis Group trustee and leader of the Western-backed & trained youth movement that helped remove Hosni Mubarak from power, has been running into trouble in Egypt recently.

During the March 19th vote on Egypt's constitution, ElBaradei was attacked on his way to the polls by an angry mob calling him "an American agent." His troubles were compounded when the constitutional amendments, which ElBardei had told supporters to reject, passed by a large margin. ElBaradei of course, wanted the constitution rewritten from scratch, with a newly drafted proposal, funded by fellow ICG trustee George Soros, ready and waiting to be ramrodded through.

With ElBaradei steeped in growing political mire and dealing with rumors that he and his stooge Wael Ghonim are part of a Western plot, global news wires are now reporting a Wikileaks release painting him in an anti-American light. The 2009 cables reveal that American officials were "unhappy" with ElBaradei. The news report also includes some off-hand comments about ElBaradei's plans to reestablish ties with Tehran and his thoughts on the Middle East peace process being a "ridiculous joke."

Despite repeated claims that ElBaradei was or is an obstacle to Western interests, his "opposition" towards America over Iraq didn't forestall America's inevitable invasion, nor has it hampered operations against Iran. With ElBaradei openly a trustee of the corporate lined International Crisis Group alongside George Soros, Wesley Clark, Zbigniew Brzezinski, and Richard Armitage, it's hard to believe his jabs were anything more than rhetorical fodder for his impressionable followers.

As rocks flew past ElBaradei on March 19th, one might say the "barrier of legitimacy" has been broken, just as ElBaradei helped break the "barrier of fear" surrounding Hosni Mubarak's regime. ElBaradei's image is quickly being hobbled by his deep ties to the US, his disingenuous meddling in Egyptian politics, and now his failure to sneak in his Soros-funded constitution. With a similar movement in Libya now overtly transforming into a Western invasion, ElBardei and opposition leaders across the Middle East will be fighting an uphill battle against accusations of being agents of the West - a battle the one-trick pony of Wikileaks most likely can't help fight.

In the Rest of the Region

Perhaps sensing the momentum of the "Arab Spring" grinding to a halt, Nicolas Sarkozy of France recently cited the bombardment of Libya and the "responsibility to protect" as a warning to the remaining Arab states. In particular he directed his warning toward Syria stating that, "every ruler should understand, and especially every Arab ruler should understand that the reaction of the international community and of Europe will from this moment on each time be the same: we will be on the side of peaceful protesters who must not be repressed with violence."

Sarkozy is not hindered by the fact that Libya's opposition consisted of armed rebels from the very beginning who have been fighting Libya's government on and off with US aid for the last three decades.

Sarkozy went on to say that there is a new post-UNSC 1973 model of "world governance." This is interesting to note, as this is foreshadowed in a Brookings Institute report titled "Libya's Test of the New International Order" back in February 2011. In it, proving the primacy of international law over national sovereignty was considered being at stake in Libya and the need to intervene being essential. Indeed, as the illusion of the "Arab Spring" fades, and targeted nation-states start fighting back, more aggressive measures are being rolled out to achieve the globalists' objectives. This includes military intervention on behalf of armed rebels, torn right from the pages of Brookings' own 2009 "Which Path to Persia?" report. Sarkozy's dangerous rhetoric certainly does open the door to intervention in both Syria and Iran.

Earth Hour: A Despicable Hoax

"Earth Hour" special by Tony Cartalucci

Nothing embodies the corporate hijacked environmental movement more than the despicable hoax that is "Earth Hour." Once a year, we are bombarded worldwide by a feel-good advertising campaign on TV, radio, billboards, fliers, in the newspaper and in every other conceivable way for an event that involves turning off the lights for one hour per year, to "take a stand against climate change."

What Al Gore doesn't tell you: CO2 has been 1000's of times
higher during the Cretaceous period and sea levels
have been
so high North America featured an inland sea.
Antarctica was
covered in temperate forests and dinosaurs.

Not only has science failed to prove that anthropogenic climate change is happening - to the extent proponents like the White House's John Holdren have relabeled "Global Warming" to "Global Climate Change" to the now most ambiguous version, "Global Climate Disruption," but the evidence suggests that the "scientists" peddling this theory have defrauded the public again and again. Worth noting, is that John Holdren himself is a creature of Harvard's Belfer Center, which is named in fact, after corrupt oil tycoon Robert Belfer. Much of the policy coming out of the Belfer Center ends up in front of delegates attending the very fraudulent and ineffective climate change summits held, most recently in Copenhagen and Cancun.

The Corbett Report breaks down "Climate Gate."

When we look at say, Earth Hour's corporate sponsors, or the WWF's corporate sponsors, or the myriad of banksters and oilmen that steer climate policy centers like Harvard's Belfer Center we should realize that not only has big oil and the rest of the corporations defiling the planet hijacked environmentalism along with multitudes of well-intentioned activists, but these corporate interests are using it to defile the planet and its population further, only now with a perceived moral justification.

Could we expect anything less from an organization so large, with so many corporate affiliations?

The proposed solutions of course, involve greater consolidations of power in the government's hands to solve these problems - the solutions being carbon taxes that get paid directly to private bankers, rules, regulations and laws that only megalithic corporations can afford to comply with thus shutting out competition, and a laundry list of other non-effectual solutions that only empower the very corporations that have caused real, verifiable environmental damage.

Deutsche Bank's "Carbon Clock." The very idea that bankers,
perhaps the most universally recognized mongers of greed
and human misery, actually care about the environment is
ridiculous. When you consider Deutsche is one of the "leading
" in the carbon credit market, then it makes sense.

What about real environmental hazards? How about the unfettered nuclear industry, depleted uranium being dumped over the ever expanding theaters of conflict the West is engaged in, or the genetically modified plants and animals that are displacing and corrupting the natural species that inhabit this planet? Or how about the ineffective, logistical & petroleum intensive mega-agricultural industry, poisonous herbicides and pesticides dumped onto our food by companies like Monsanto, free-trade that sees tons of diesel fuel burned to bring plastic trinkets from Chinese factories to America's shores, and the list goes on ad infinitum.

Real solutions generally don't involve corporations or government, in fact, as a necessity must exclude them. The marriage between corporate interests and government regulations should be something all of us can agree on, regardless of where we sit on the political spectrum.

Real solutions involve a real education in science, technology, design, and manufacturing. This empowers people in all levels of society to accurately assess problems and apply local solutions. This, coupled with modern manufacturing technology enables more to be done on a local level, short-circuiting the petroleum intensive logistical chains WWF sponsors like Walmart couldn't live without.

Organic farming on a local level coupled with local farmers' markets eliminates entirely the need for Monsanto poison, fertilizers, and genetically modified franken-crops, along with the replacement of the petroleum intensive logistical networks that distribute big-agri's products.

In fact, when you think about it, almost all of these real solutions involve real community and local action. These are not solutions that involve policies, taxes, and regulations, but rather technology, education, constructive, pragmatic, technical solutions that not only would make our environment more livable, but make our local economies and communities more viable and self-sufficient. The catch is, and the reason why this isn't being done, you will notice that none of these activities require WWF sponsors like Walmart, Nike, IBM, Toyota, Bank of America, Coca-Cola, HSBC, Citi, IKEA, Nokia, etc.

Does it make sense then, to see why real problems and their solutions have become the target of hijackers like the corporate conglomeration that is the WWF? Does it make sense to see them offering "alternative" centralized, corporate dependent solutions that replace local activism?

Please investigate for yourself, WWF's corporate sponsors and see how many of them end up on this list, "Naming Names," which exposes the corporations and special interests that keep us at perpetual war and on the edge of financial ruin.

Do we honestly think that these corporations care about the responsible stewardship of the planet? Do they care about people? Do they care about the environment? Are they not at the center of the most horrific scandals, atrocities, and wars of our age? If you care about your environment, do yourself a favor, keep your lights on during the next "Earth Hour", and do some reading on how you can empower yourself, your community, and become independent from the petroleum hungry, world ravaging corporations that are promoting their version of "environmentalism" through hijacked organizations like the WWF. They have created in their own image a human-hating Malthusian religion of servile obedience to a world government that "promises" to fix the problems they themselves have created.

Let's be smarter than this, let's look past the slick public relations stunt that is "Earth Hour," and look around locally at real solutions. Think and act locally. You know what's wrong with your hometown and most likely you know how to fix it. Most importantly you and your neighbors can see it is in your best interest to do so, and it doesn't require charlatans like Al Gore to hold your hand, paying him carbon taxes while you do it.

For more on real solutions that not only promote freedom and liberty, but give us the tools to create cleaner and more efficient technological solutions locally please read on:

Globalists Hit in Syria

Opposition is a conglomeration of Western-backed "human rights activists."
by Tony Cartalucci

The Syrian revolution uses a strikingly familiar logo.
The Otpor fist was originally used in Serbia in 2000, and
handed off to the various movements trained by the US
funded CANVAS organization, including the Tunisian &
Egyptian youth movements- now the Syrian Youth Revolution.

"A prominent Syrian opposition figure says the country is "a bomb, ready to explode" as protesters demand freedom and an end to president Bashar al-Assad's "cancerous regime,"" reports Australia's ABC News. This prominent Syrian opposition figure is "human rights activist" Haitham Maleh, of the Human Rights Association of Syria, recently released from a Syrian prison.

Haitham Maleh, and Muhannad al-Hassani, another activist whose plight is being used to stir up unrest, both received "pro-bono" legal services from the CFR stacked "Freedom Now" organization. Freedom Now receives funding from the Moriah Fund, the Lantos Foundation which includes Israeli President Shimon Peres as an "adviser," Real Networks Foundation (which also funds Democracy Now) and the Charles Bronfman Prize which proclaims on its website "Jewish Values. Global Impact." Freedom Now also receives "pro-bono" legal support from the Pillsbury law firm, a CFR corporate member.

Freedom Now specializes in "political prisoners" from various regions around the world that attract the attention of globalist ambitions. Leveraging these "human rights abuses" affords the globalists a perceived moral high ground from which they can exert pressure on target nations. This is very similar to the operation being run by Chatham House globalist Robert Amsterdam of Amsterdam & Peroff, who is defending western-backed Mikhail Khodorkovsky to ratchet up pressure on Russia, and Thaksin Shinawatra to exert pressure on Thailand.

Understanding who these "human rights activists" are, who is supporting them, and the role they play in the latest round of the Western-backed "Arab Spring," we can better understand articles like Jerusalem Post's 'More than 100 killed in Syrian anti-government rallies.' In the very first paragraph, the article concedes that the reports were cited from human rights activists and witnesses, thus a continuation of the absurd, unsubstantiated reporting seen earlier in Libya where unverified reports by the criminally irresponsible corporate media laid the groundwork for an equally criminal military intervention.

It is important to remember that Syria was included under George
Bush's "Axis of Evil" and mentioned in a 2007 speech by US General
Wesley Clark as slated for destabilization and regime change.

Other actors amongst the Syrian unrest to be wary of include the London-based Syrian Human-Rights Committee whose hearsay statements posted on its website are cited by corporate news media in outlandish reports of violence that also include "activists say" after each allegation.

The clownish London-based Syrian Human Rights Committee puts on a
poorly staged demonstration outside the Syrian Embassy in England.
As silly as the SHRC looks, a good
majority of the information the
mainstream media reports on from Syria comes from "
human rights
organizations" like this.

There is also Kamal Labwani, who in 2005 was arrested in Syria after returning from a trip to Europe and the United States where he met with government officials, journalists, and "human rights" groups in his effort to "change" the Syrian government. Amongst these officials Labwani consorted with was George Bush's Deputy National Security Adviser J.D. Crouch.

Considering that the United States had openly declared Syria a rogue-state, and in a speech by John Bolton, was targeted by possible US military action, Syria's accusations that Labwani was guilty of "communicating with a foreign country and inciting it to initiate aggression against Syria" doesn't seem so far fetched. In most nations the punishment for treason is death, under Syria's "cancerous regime" Labwani got 12 years.

Once again, we see an entire movement fomented and propelled by Western-backed opposition in tandem with the corporate owned media. This is all part of a now irrefutable larger plot consuming the Middle East and Northern Africa.

Just as we saw in Egypt and to a greater extent in Libya, the initial phases of unrest in Syria are marked by purposefully sloppy and confused reporting giving the destabilization efforts on the ground a chance to stampede the government from office. Should this stampeding fail, the truth will begin to trickle out, and the West's involvement will become more overt.

Economic Terrorists: That's You

How we've come full-circle.
commentary by Tony Cartalucci

Turban wearing cavemen were never what the "War on Terror" was about.

Many have said in the wake of 9/11 that the "War on Terror" was only temporarily reserved for the "Muslim extremists" but would soon include any nationality, religion, or demographic that stood in the way of the globalists' megalomaniacal designs. As we develop our knowledge of the real world around us, we begin to understand the key to real freedom - self-sufficiency and independence on a personal and local level. Realizing that real freedom also stands in the way of the globalists' designs, it was only inevitable that any attempt to become independent of their burgeoning world-spanning empire, would "make the list" of terroristic activities as well.

While it is easy to understand a narrative of terrorism that includes bomb-vest wearing foreigners infiltrating our cities and killing people on their way to work, it becomes increasingly difficult to understand as the definition of terrorism is shifted toward you and me. Recently, Zero Hedge reported on the FBI's conviction of Bernard von NotHaus, an American who was minting his own money. This was not counterfeited US currency, rather it was a private, competing currency backed with precious metals.

The FBI specifically mentioned "terrorism" in relation to Mr. von NotHaus's case.

“Attempts to undermine the legitimate currency of this country are simply a unique form of domestic terrorism,” U.S. Attorney Tompkins said in announcing the verdict. “While these forms of anti-government activities do not involve violence, they are every bit as insidious and represent a clear and present danger to the economic stability of this country,” she added. “We are determined to meet these threats through infiltration, disruption, and dismantling of organizations which seek to challenge the legitimacy of our democratic form of government.”

However, the Federal Reserve note is not legitimate currency in any shape, form or way, legally, economically, or ideologically. The US Constitution has solely given Congress the duty to issue our nation's currency and set its value (Article 1 Section 8). This is not a duty the Congress can pawn off onto the Federal Reserve - a cartel of private banks. But just as US policy is now being created and purveyed by corporate think-tanks instead of our legislative branch, our monetary policy is being created and purveyed by private banks, not our Congress.

The threat von NotHaus posed was not to the US economy, nor the US Constitution, but rather to the corporations that have hijacked and monopolized them. By offering Americans an alternative to the private banking cartel's collapsing fiat currency, von NotHaus gave us an opportunity to entirely replace this corrupt system, become independent once again as a nation and restore the US Constitution.

Fake War on Terror expands into Fake War on Economic Terror

To help explain why we are terrorists for resisting receivership under crony-corporate fascism, there is News Corporation's Glenn Beck. News Corporation itself is a member of the corporate-financier run Council on Foreign Relations, with Fox News' Rupert Murdoch holding an individual membership as well.

Glenn Beck has recently sided with US Attorney Tompkins' decision, calling Bernard von NotHaus "misguided" and that what von NotHaus was doing was "illegal." Beck goes on to say that von NotHaus' idea of using sound currency based on tangible assets is "not the answer."

Beck then uses the zero tolerance exhibited by the Department of Justice as a call to action against SEIU's Steve Lerner who allegedly wants to usher in financial crisis by collapsing JP Morgan. If anyone is guilty of inciting economic terrorism, Glenn Beck postulates, it would be Steve Lerner.

Beck lays out how SEIU thugs, who he claims work for Obama, are going to take
down JP Morgan and the "American economy." Beck fails to mention
that by
"American economy" he means the banking oligarchy that has entirely
it, and whose henchmen run Obama's administration from top to bottom.

Those keeping tabs on Glenn Beck's gibbering disinformation might remember him claiming that the SEIU are thugs working for America's political "left," specifically Obama's administration. To a point he is right, the SEIU clearly has served Obama's administration. However, when we consider that every aspect of Obama's administration is dictated by corporate think-tanks with memberships including the world's largest corporations and personalities from both sides of America's political spectrum, the "left conspiracy" Beck speaks of begins to fall apart.

A partial look at the mountain of lost humanity that constitutes Obama's administration reveals that corporate interests are well represented, with a disproportional amount of financiers involved in "advising" Obama. If ever there was a team poised to stop the economic terrorism Obama's SEIU thugs are about to unleash, it would be Obama's administration itself.

Timothy Geithner (Secretary of the Treasury): Group of 30, Council on Foreign Relations, private Federal Reserve
Eric Holder (Attorney General): Covington & Burling lobbying for Merck and representing Chiquita International Brands in lawsuits brought by relatives of people killed by Colombian terrorists.
Eric Shinseki (Secretary of Veteran Affairs): US Army, Council on Foreign Relations, Honeywell director (military contractor), Ducommun director (military contractor).
Rahm Emanuel (former Chief of Staff): Freddie Mac
William Daley (Chief of Staff): JP Morgan executive committee member
Susan Rice (UN Ambassador): McKinsey and Company, Brookings Institute, Council on Foreign Relations
Peter Orszag, (former Budget Director): Citi Group, Council on Foreign Relations
Paul Volcker
: Council on Foreign Relations, private Federal Reserve, Group of 30
Ronald Kirk (US Trade Representative): lobbyist, part of Goldman Sachs, Kohlberg, Kravis, Roberts, and Texas Pacific Group partnership to buyout Energy Future Holdings.
Lawrence Summers (National Economic Council Director): World Bank, Council on Foreign Relations

It is unclear why Beck is peddling such a poorly dressed conspiracy theory. One possible explanation is that the global corporate-financier oligarchy realizes its weak spot and is conjuring up the appropriate bogeymen to justify a robust effort to defend it. Beck's narrative holds up the SEIU, a bogeyman Beck has meticulously built up over the years, as a group for his impressionable audience to relate all anti-Wall Street activists with.

Max Keiser breaks down his "Crash JP Morgan, Buy Silver" campaign.
Lerner's rhetoric sounds strikingly similar to Keiser's call to crash JP.

One man, who is most assuredly not an SEIU member is finance pundit Max Keiser. Kesier has been leading a campaign named "Crash JP Morgan Buy Silver," which aims at encouraging people worldwide to buy physically delivered silver to put JP Morgan out of business. JP Morgan has been issuing paper certificates representing silver they do not own (counterfeiting). Should people around the world (and they are) heed Keiser's call and force firms like JP Morgan to deliver silver they do not hold, they will "crash."

Due to the amount of criminally procured wealth, power, and influence JP Morgan has accumulated over the decades (through activities like counterfeiting silver certificates), its "crashing" would undoubtedly threaten the stability of the global Ponzi-economy. However, JP Morgan is but a member of the global corporate-financier oligarchy whose unsustainable megalomaniacal pursuits have already threatened the stability of the real global economy.

Collapsing JP Morgan in this manner, while simultaneously collecting silver, sets a precedence of systematically dismantling and replacing all corporations accumulating and wielding unwarranted influence. Considering that these corporations literally wage war in countries like Iraq, Afghanistan, and now Libya to obtain and protect their interests, they undoubtedly have a plan to ward off men like Max Keiser, or Bernard von NotHaus who has already been labeled a domestic terrorist by the FBI and faces 15 years in prison.

By labeling men like von NotHaus a terrorist, the prospect of shifting the poorly justified American police-state toward activists challenging corporate interests becomes an alarming possibility. Indeed, should von NotHaus end up in jail, it will become an alarming reality. By associating men like von NotHaus or Keiser with ready-made villains like the SEIU, it makes it easier for the general public to accept such crackdowns. The answer though, is not to be cowed into falling in line, but to become more aggressive in heeding the calls of boycotts and activism like Keiser's "Crash JP Morgan, Buy Silver" campaign.

The veneer of invincibility has already been peeled back in another challenge to corporate dominion, this time in the world of media. Alternative media and peer-to-peer file sharing have in tandem peeled away massive segments of the corporate media's audience and profits. The countermeasures of litigation, intrusive regulations, and lobbying employed have not only categorically failed, but have actually awakened many to the true nature of these bloated, antiquated money men.

Backlashes against GMO giants like Cargill and Monsanto with the concurrent rise of organic farming and farmers' markets have also proven these corporations are but paper tigers in the face of informed and determined populations who are not only prepared to fight back, but have taken steps to entirely replace them as well.

How Self-Sufficiency Becomes "Terrorism"

For any problem there are two paths. One involves policy, namely regulations and laws. Another involves innovation and technical solutions.

Our prehistoric ancestors when faced with the adversity of starvation didn't resort to policy, such as rationing or population control, but instead picked up a stick, sharpened it, and embarked on hunts of animals our physiology was otherwise incapable of bringing down. Innovation not only allowed us to survive, but to flourish. We built better spears, we devised bows and arrows, we developed agricultural technology, and when our populations swelled due to our ability to prevail against natural odds, we explored and settled new climbs and places.

Early man didn't solve his problems with policy, he solved them
with innovation, tools (technology), & ingenuity. Instead of rationing
food and implementing population control, these men created
spears and hunted down otherwise unapproachable prey.

Innovation and technology has allowed us to create the current society we now live in. Technology has reached a point where it allows individuals and communities to do ever more on their own without the need of bloated central governments and world spanning corporate empires. If left unchecked, governments and corporations will begin to shrink in size and capacity, playing an ever minimizing role in our daily lives.

This trend toward technologically facilitated localism translates into an unsavory world order for the ruling global corporate-financier oligarchs, a world order they are fighting ceaselessly to prevent from coming into being. They fight this battle by monopolizing ideas, information, energy, technology, and the monetary system, in tandem with the systematic sabotaging of our education system, constant intellectual pollution via mainstream media, and the devastating physical and mental effects of the food and pharmaceutical industries. Much of this is justified through a Malthusian-themed strategy of tension involving narratives of overpopulation and resource scarcity.

It becomes clear that geopolitical domination facilitated by the very fake "War on Terror" is only one step in a larger plan. As the globalists fight on to destroy the nation-state worldwide, they fight domestically to destroy self-sufficiency and independence. Just as foreign nations become terrorist extremists for resisting the oligarchs globally, we are becoming domestic and economic terrorists for resisting them on the home front.
