Trump’s war against the media continues

Trump’s war against the media continues

by Jon Rappoport

February 26, 2017

Those who thought Trump would back off in his war against media are, so far, wrong.

For example, the other day, the White House held an informal press conference, a “gaggle,” and among those not invited was the New York Times.

—How dare they, the Times said.

The truth is, we are long overdue for a massive exposure of the mainstream press. As in: they are liars. As in: they are shills for the so-called “progressive Left.” As in: they have a history of supporting horrific US wars. As in: they take CIA “leaks” as gospel. As in: they never expose the Globalist agenda. As in: they defend conventional medicine which destroys millions of lives. And so forth and so on.

Think of what Trump, Bannon, and their team are doing as a necessary “market correction,” after a century-long bubble.

Any president or presidential candidate could have executed the correction. But they didn’t. Trump did.

Who is reporting on Trump’s war against the media? For the most part, independent news outlets. Of course, the Times and other mainstream news operations are slamming Trump for his attacks on them—but they are in the middle of the fire. And they don’t have the will, courage, and intelligence to assess their own performance over the last century. They can’t be expected to expose themselves.

The overall long-term effect of mainstream news is the induction of a hypnotic trance. The audience expects the truth because they believe. They uncritically accept. They rely on “reputation.” They ingest Authoritative Tone. They need a Voice that narrates reality. They refuse to do their own research. They reject the idea that there are powerful men behind the curtain who are controlling the direction of government. They embrace vague “humanitarian” ideals that are reflected with the same vagueness by mainstream news.

This is a war on the subject of waking up vs. staying asleep.

It is much bigger than Trump. He is a catalyst.

Even if you assume every single one of his policy objectives is wrongheaded and dangerous, he is still a catalyst.

Most Progressives who have also been opposed to major media fictions over the years now put that issue on the back burner, because they hate Trump. They would never admit he is a wedge into the shattering of mainstream supremacy. They would rather spend all their time attacking The Donald. “We’ll revisit the continuing major media crimes later, when hopefully a Democrat (who? Hillary Clinton?) is leading the charge…” Good luck.

In my 30 years as a reporter, I’ve come to see the result of mainstream news parading as the eyes, ears, mouth, and brain of the populace. It has been an utter disaster. The stench has risen high in the sky. I’ve watched reporters who are actually CIA assets turn the truth upside down and inside out. I’ve watched news editors ax vital stories that could have redirected history along better roads. I’ve watched “legendary journalists” betray the public trust time and time again, as their reputations climbed to the level of honored statesmen. I’ve watched newly minted graduates emerge from journalism schools with the moral sense of hustlers who sell pay-day loans to desperate clients.

When you realize the persona of mainstream news is a stage hypnotist performing daily in front of millions of people, you know the clog in the brain of the public must be taken away.

The naïve faith of the hypnotic subject must be dismantled.

We have a chance now. More than a chance. We are winning. The shift to independent media is happening on a grand scale.

Consensus reality is absorbing powerful body blows.

In many cases, people are realizing the consensus doesn’t even exist. It was erected on a foundation of sand by The News. It was propped up by chatter from fake experts.

If six mega-corporations now own roughly 90% of the mainstream news in America, it stands to reason they are going to service other mega-corporations, as well a federal government which supports and illegally advances the prospects and profits of those other companies.

The News is the business of business, via hypnosis. “Here is the Word about America today. Close your eyes and relax…”

My own personal and final declaration of independence as a reporter came ten years ago, after I had researched and exposed several monumental medical lies. In each case, I discovered mainstream news outlets were blocking the publication of the truth. In each case, they were defending the lies.

There was no sadness or depression about this. Quite the opposite. I felt energized and inspired. My long-held suspicion about mainstream news was irrevocably confirmed. The die was cast. There was no going back. From that point on, I would be dedicated to unseating major media cover stories with the facts.

There are many, many people who would take it as a personal loss and tragedy if the New York Times disappeared tomorrow. They would be beside themselves. I would take it as a great victory. A tremendous amount of “normalcy” would go out the window. Which is a good thing.

Because we really do exist in a landscape strewn with ops, cover stories, real conspiracies, lies, omissions of great importance, and bribery. Seeing all this surface and penetrate the hypnotic blanket would certainly cause an amount of chaos. But it would be fertile chaos.

From it, new individuals would arise with new discoveries and new solutions. People would find out what hope (not fake hope) is.

Loads and tons of un-remediated problems would begin to dissolve in burning light.

Well, this is happening now. We are still in the early stages. But is happening.

The old familiar semi-happy status quo is going away. It was never genuine. It was nothing more than the Sunday edition of the New York Times arriving on a doorstep, with the promise of morning coffee. Comfortable habits.

Now we are climbing mountains and making deep archeological digs. We are launched.

No possible future is safe as long as The News is the perceptual apparatus of the people. The News in the mainstream has forfeited its right to exist and flourish. We can know that now or know it later.

I opt for now.

I highly recommend now. It’s bracing and fortunate and absolving.

Joy comes in many forms.

Trump, Watergate, Nixon, Rockefeller: the real lesson

Trump, Watergate, Nixon, Rockefeller: the real lesson

—Two very different men, two very different presidents, Trump and Nixon; but the real reasons for attacking them are the same—

by Jon Rappoport

February 22, 2017

Watergate eventually became the story of two young rookie reporters who exposed and took down a president. Nixon.

Try to think of another major story in your lifetime where the reporters themselves took center stage, and in the process nearly eclipsed their own work. Odd.

One of them, Bob Woodward, expanded his fame. The powers-that-be permitted him to go on and, with extraordinary access, write books criticizing future presidents. Woodward became the in-house attack dog. Mr. Limited Hangout.

The other reporter, Carl Bernstein, faded into relative obscurity. Well, after all, he began exposing many journalists’ connections to the CIA. That wasn’t a productive career move. It was, perhaps, a case of him biting the CIA hand that, without his knowledge, had fed him during his Watergate investigation.

What Woodward and Bernstein didn’t know, during Watergate, was this: On the mega-corporate front, the Rockefeller proposal for world control—“free trade, no tariffs”—was advancing toward fruition, and Richard Nixon was standing in the way.

This man, a crook, a president, a liar, an insecure parody of a head of state, Richard Nixon, had gone off script. He had REALLY gone off script.

In an effort to bolster US companies and protect them from foreign competition inside the United States, Nixon began erecting tariffs on a range of goods imported into the US.

If this Nixon economic plan spread to other countries, the entire global program to install “free trade” and mega-corporate emperors on their thrones for a thousand years could crash and burn.

Nixon was a Rockefeller man. He was owned by them. He’d been rescued from financial ruin by The Family, and now he was in the White House undermining their greatest dream. You can’t overstate the degree of the betrayal, from the Rockefeller point of view. You simply can’t.

Something had to be done. The president had to go. This was the real motivation behind Watergate. This was the real op. Yes, there were sub-motives and smaller contexts, as in any major op, but the prime mover was: get Free Trade back on track, and get suitable revenge on the puppet in the White House who went off the script.

Any historian who overlooks this is an outright fool or a deceiver.

Whether the Watergate break-in was planned to serve the higher goal or was pounced upon, after the fact, as the grand opportunity, is beside the point. It was there, and it was used. It became the starting point for the Washington Post, its publisher, veteran editor, and two cub reporters to break Richard Nixon into pieces.

And if the Rockefeller people needed an inside man at the White House to report on the deteriorating mental state of the president as he heated up in the pressure cooker, they had Henry Kissinger, who was another Rockefeller operative.

The Washington Post was owned by Katharine Graham, who was herself a very close friend of the Rockefeller Family. Years later, she would be awarded a medal of honor by the University of Chicago, an institution founded by John D. Rockefeller. On her death, a paid heartfelt obituary was inserted in the NY Times by the trustees, faculty, and staff of Rockefeller University, where she had served on the University Council.

And she and Nixon already hated each other by the early 1970s.

The managing editor of the Washington Post, Ben Bradlee, was an old hand at writing promotional material, having worked in Europe crafting releases for a CIA front group. A former Naval intelligence man, he liked one of his cub reporters, Bob Woodward, who had also worked for the Navy in intelligence.

When Woodward came to Bradlee with a story about a man in a parking garage who was passing secrets from the White House/FBI about Watergate, we are supposed to believe that Bradlee naturally responded by giving the green light to a major investigation. Woodward and Carl Bernstein, another cub, would undertake it—with nothing more than Bradlee’s reputation and the future survival of the Post and Katharine Graham’s empire on the line if the cubs got it wrong.

We are supposed to believe Bradlee gave the green light, without knowing who the man in the garage was, without knowing whether Woodward could be trusted, without even getting permission from Graham to move ahead.

Bradlee, a grizzled veteran of Washington, understanding exactly what Washington could do to people who told secrets out of school, just said to Woodward and Bernstein, “You’d better be damned sure you’re right, because otherwise we’re all in trouble.”

Two untested cub reporters set loose in a cage with tigers.

The odds of that happening were nil. Bradlee had to know a great deal from the beginning, and he had to have Katharine Graham’s signal to move. The series of breaking stories would be spoon-fed to the unsuspecting young reporters. They would be consumed by their ambition to advance their careers. Bradlee was confident because he had the essentials of the scandal in hand—all the way up to Nixon, the target—well in advance of his two reporters.

To have proceeded otherwise—Bradlee was simply not that kind of fool. Whatever Deep Throat, the man in the garage, was dishing out to Woodward didn’t really matter. Bradlee already had it in his pocket. Deep Throat was merely a contrivance to allow the story to expand and grow by steps, and to permit Woodward and Bernstein to believe they were peeling layers from an onion.

The man behind the curtain was David Rockefeller.

After the whole scandal had been exposed and Nixon had flown away, in disgrace, from the White House for the last time, David Rockefeller addressed a meeting of the Chamber of Commerce of the European Community (October, 1975). He was there to allay their fears about Nixon’s betrayal of the new economic world order. There was really very little he needed to say. David had already created (1973) the free-trade Trilateral Commission, an exceedingly powerful force. And a new puppet, Gerald Ford was in the White House; and Ford had appointed David’s brother, Nelson Rockefeller, as his vice president.

David told the European attendees, “Fortunately, there are no signs that these anti-[free] trade measures [of Nixon] are supported by the [Ford] Administration.”

And that was that. The global mega-corporate colossus was back on track.

The temporary rip in the Matrix had been repaired.

On a far lower level of power politics, everyone and his brother were consumed with the contrails of the scandal that had driven away Nixon and his colleagues. People were congratulating each other on the expunging of a corrupt conspiracy from public life.

The real players, of course, were still in place, stronger than ever. David Rockefeller and his aides were preparing for an even greater coup. They had chosen an obscure man with zero name recognition to be the next president of the United States. Jimmy Carter. Carter would function to forward the goals of the Trilateral Commission in bold view of anyone who knew the score.

And every president since Carter, regardless of party affiliation, has supported and extended those Globalist-corporate goals. No questions asked. Obama, who fatuously remarked during his 2008 election campaign that NAFTA “needs to be revisited,” has taken his cues like any other puppet.

When, from this perspective, you examine the global takeover of land and resources by GMO agribusiness, the destruction of small family farms, the plundering of natural resources in the Third World, the use of UN “peacekeepers” and “humanitarian groups” and intelligence agencies to create a wedge, for corporations, into these areas, you see the hand of the Rockefeller plan.

When you see the destruction of currencies and the escalation of insupportable debt, the incursion of a bewildering number of UN-affiliated groups sinking their teeth into local communities all over the planet to “manage sustainable development,” you see the plan.

And when you see “free trade” and no tariffs, you see the essentials nuts and bolts of the plan.

The innocuous-sounding “free trade” policy is the number-one priority of every American president. He must do two things: rarely speak of it, and allow it to move forward. That’s all. In return, he gets to act as if he’s the most powerful man in the world.

But if he wobbles and considers taking up a position against free trade (corporate domination of the planet), he can look back and see what happened to Richard Nixon. He can learn from that example.

He can re-learn the famous words of Zbiggie Brzezinski, co-founder of the Trilateral Commission and David Rockefeller’s intellectual flunkey: “The nation state as a fundamental unit of man’s organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force: International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation-state.”

Like Jimmy Carter, a president can espouse the most wide-ranging humanitarian philosophy and ascend to a cloud of beautiful altruism, admired by all. As long as he sticks to the plan.

If not, agents and reporters coming out of nowhere will try to demolish him.


The Matrix Revealed

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, The Matrix Revealed, click here.)


—Suddenly, a swaggering, self-congratulatory, fast-talking cowboy named Donald Trump appeared as a presidential candidate. And lo and behold, he attacked Globalism by name. He claimed he would dump it in favor of American nationalism. He repeated this oath many times. And he won the election, unseating a lifelong Globalist named Hillary Clinton.

Whether Trump intends on keeping his promises and going up against the Rockefeller colossus, he has spoken of that which must not be uttered in public: the crimes of Globalism and free trade.

He has let the secret cat out of the bag. He has made people aware…

And for that, he must be punished.

What people are calling the Deep State is the collection of agents who are committed to the Rockefeller plan. They, and their media flunkeys, are swinging for the fences every time they mention Trump. They are doing everything they can to take him down.

***From their perspective, they are launching another Watergate-type operation against another Nixon in the White House.

Another time, “another Nixon”; same basic op.

—In order to protect the titanic, Globalist, corporate control of planet Earth.

This time, the rhetoric and the sentiment for nationalism and against Globalism has already spread across the world. It is percolating and boiling in many places.

Putting the lid back on is a herculean task. Therefore, the agents and reporters are doubling and tripling down on Trump. Even if he turns out to be no more than a symbol of anti-Globalism, they are determined to crush him.

They have their marching orders.

Mere blocks away from the Oval Office, the Community Organizer in Chief, after serving eight years in the White House, is now setting up a parallel presidency, with 30,000 ground-and-pound Leftist dupes at his disposal—all for the purpose of taking down Donald Trump.

You can bet Obama’s bosses have reminded him that he failed at his most important task: shepherding through the free-trade Trans-Pacific Partnership treaty. They intend to collect on their investment. They put him, a no-name, in charge of the nation, in 2008, and he is still their agent. They want results.

Soon.

They want a 2017 version of Watergate.

The CIA vs. the presidency: this is not the first time

The CIA vs. the Presidency: this is not the first time

by Jon Rappoport

February 20, 2017

—In 1947, the president of the United States, Harry Truman, decided: I’m going to create a snake and call it the CIA. Its watchword will be secrecy. It will collect secrets of our enemies and hold them secret and report the secrets to the president, who will decide what to do. Of course, the snake will remain under the president’s control. Its entire personality will be based on deception, but it will remain loyal to the president. No problem. Sure.

I’m thankful for Charles Hollander’s challenging piece on Thomas Pynchon’s novel, The Crying of Lot 49: “Pynchon, JFK and the CIA: Magic Eye Views of The Crying of Lot 49.”

Hollander offers vital reminders of the war between two parts of the Executive Branch: the presidency and the CIA.

“Implicit in Pynchon’s fiction is the view that events in recent American history have led to a virtual constitutional crisis, a challenge to the supremacy of the presidency by the intelligence community.”

“When Eisenhower made his ‘open skies’ proposal, in July 21, 1955, at a Geneva summit conference, calling for unrestricted but monitored overflight of national territories on both sides of the Iron Curtain, many observers felts its acceptance would have gone a long way toward thawing the Cold War. To make a gesture of good faith toward Soviet Premier Khrushchev, the president ordered the CIA (under Allen Dulles) to halt its U–2 photo–reconnaissance flights. But Dulles secretly arranged for the flights to continue. When Francis Gary Powers’s U–2 spy plane was shot down in the Ural mountains on May 1, 1960, and Khrushchev announced the facts to the world media, the embarrassed Eisenhower lied to cover up. To many it appeared that the CIA chief had disobeyed a direct order from the Commander–in–Chief. The St. Louis Post–Dispatch asked the next day, ‘Do our intelligence operatives enjoy so much freewheeling authority that they can touch off an incident of grave international import by low–level decisions unchecked by responsible policy–making power’?”

“Later, when Lee Harvey Oswald’s possible role in the U–2 affair became known, some observers felt Dulles’s action implied that the director of the CIA was above the president and that the military–industrial complex could do what it pleased, independent of the will of the people as expressed by the popularly elected and duly constituted chief executive. No wonder Ike [Eisenhower] was peeved: the CIA was running the U.S. the way it ran Latin America. The U–2 affair was no mere personality squabble, Ike vs. Dulles; it was two institutions of the executive branch vying for supremacy, the presidency vs. the CIA, hence the democratic process vs. a form of totalitarism.”

“The CIA had already planned the April 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion before Kennedy took office in January, and when the invasion failed, Kennedy felt that the CIA had set him up. He let it be known he intended to dismantle the CIA and assign its functions to the other intelligence units within the government. He reportedly vowed ‘to splinter the CIA in a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds’… Kennedy, a Democrat, forced the Republican Allen Dulles to resign, along with other senior CIA officers. But the CIA was too deeply involved just then in operations around the world to be disassembled. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, in a way that implicated the CIA…critics of the Warren Commission Report, maybe even J. Edgar Hoover—believed the CIA had some hand in Kennedy’s assassination and the coverup. If it had, the CIA was again demonstrating that the presidency was subordinate to the CIA.”

“In a very short time, two presidents, a Republican and a Democrat, ran afoul of the CIA. The result amounted to a constitutional crisis, a change in our actual form of government without benefit of a duly ratified constitutional amendment. The crisis is reminiscent of that period in Roman history when the Praetorian Guard could sell the office of Emperor to the highest bidder and then, after a time, assassinate him and have a new auction. To this day, the president has never again challenged the CIA, though the agency has made its share of egregious errors. With the selection of former CIA director George H.W. Bush, the presidency and the CIA effectively merged…”


The Matrix Revealed

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, The Matrix Revealed, click here.)


These days, President Trump is in his own war against the CIA and other parts of the intelligence community (IC).

In his case, he has overtly criticized the IC and called them disseminators of fake news and lies. He claims he’s putting an end to foreign wars of conquest. He’s already canceled a major Globalist trade treaty, the TPP.

But the IC believes it owns the Presidency and sets his agenda.

This is not a recent assumption. It goes all the way back to the early days of the CIA; Eisenhower, Kennedy.

In 2016, the IC leadership decided Trump would be a threat to their power, so they leaked/invented information about the Russians influencing the election on behalf of Trump. This effort was aimed at corroding his right to claim that he was the legitimate president.

The war continues.

The IC doesn’t want presidents with independent ideas.

They’re the bosses, and they intend to keep it that way.

—The snake slithers in the sun and the shade. It moves deftly and collects information and decides what to do with it. It compiles its own private list of enemies and allies. It senses its own power. Why should it honor its mandate? There is an Empire to be gained.

Is the NSA the real president of the United States?

Is the NSA the real president of the United States?

by Jon Rappoport

February 16, 2017

The US intelligence community continues its war to kick Donald Trump to the curb and destroy his presidency.

Obviously, the NSA, the CIA, and their silent partners want to continue to run this country.

So they spy and leak, spy and leak.

We’ll get to the guts of the problem in a minute, but first a word from Bill Binney.

Breitbart: “William Binney, a former highly placed NSA official turned whistleblower, contended in an exclusive interview today that the National Security Agency (NSA) is ‘absolutely’ monitoring the phone calls of President Donald Trump.”

“Binney was an architect of the NSA’s surveillance program. He became a famed whistleblower when he resigned on October 31, 2001 after spending more than 30 years with the agency.”

“Asked whether he believes the NSA is tapping Trump, Binney replied: ‘Absolutely. How did they get the phone call between the president and the president of Australia? Or the one that he made with Mexico? Those are not targeted foreigners’.”

“Binney further contended the NSA may have been behind a data leak that might have revealed that Michael Flynn, Trump’s national security adviser, allegedly misled Vice President Mike Pence and other Trump administration officials about the contents of his phone calls with Russia’s ambassador to Washington.”

“Regarding Flynn’s case, Binney stated of the NSA”:

“’If they weren’t behind it, they certainly had the data. Now the difference here is that FBI and CIA have direct access inside the NSA databases. So, they may be able to go directly in there and see that material there. And NSA doesn’t monitor that. They don’t even monitor their own people going into databases’.”

“So, they don’t monitor what CIA and FBI do. And there’s no oversight or attempted oversight by any of the committees or even the FISA court. So, any way you look at it, ultimately the NSA is responsible because they are doing the collection on everybody inside the United States. Phone calls. Emails. All of that stuff’.”

“Utilizing data provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden, the Guardian and Washington Post in June 2013 released a series of articles reporting that the NSA was collecting the telephone records of millions of Americans.”

“…’they [the NSA, Binney said]] are given too much money anyway. When they are given too much money, they get to do wild and crazy things. And this is wild and crazy. Violations of the Constitution’s 4th, 5th, and 6th amendments’.”

—end of Breitbart clip—

—Nearly two years ago, on April 19, 2014, I wrote: “Taking the overall [NSA] scheme to another level, consider this: those same [NSA] heavy hitters who have unfettered access to financial information can also choose, at opportune moments, to expose certain scandals [e.g., Michael Flynn] and crimes. In this way, they can, at their whim, cripple governments [e.g., the Trump administration]…”

Now we come to the guts of the problem. Here is my complete article from April 10, 2014:

The Surveillance State has created an apparatus whose implications are staggering. It’s a different world now. And sometimes it takes a writer of fiction to flesh out the larger landscape.

Brad Thor’s novel, Black List, posits the existence of a monster corporation, ATS, that stands alongside the NSA in collecting information on every move we make. ATS’ intelligence-gathering capability is unmatched anywhere in the world.

On pages 117-118 of Black List, Thor makes a stunning inference that, on reflection, is as obvious as the fingers on your hand:

“For years ATS had been using its technological superiority to conduct massive insider trading. Since the early 1980s, the company had spied on anyone and everyone in the financial world. They listened in on phone calls, intercepted faxes, and evolved right along with the technology, hacking internal computer networks and e-mail accounts. They created mountains of ‘black dollars’ for themselves, which they washed through various programs they were running under secret contract, far from the prying eyes of financial regulators.”

“Those black dollars were invested into hard assets around the world, as well as in the stock market, through sham, offshore corporations. They also funneled the money into reams of promising R&D projects, which eventually would be turned around and sold to the Pentagon or the CIA.”

“In short, ATS had created its own license to print money and had assured itself a place beyond examination or reproach.”

In real life, whether the prime criminal source is one monster- corporation or a consortium of companies, or elite banks, or the NSA itself, the outcome would be the same.

It would be as Thor describes it.

We think about total surveillance as being directed at private citizens, but the capability has unlimited payoffs when it targets financial markets and the people who have intimate knowledge of them.

“Total security awareness” programs of surveillance are ideal spying ops in the financial arena, designed to suck up millions of bits of inside information, then utilizing them to make investments and suck up billions (trillions?) of dollars.

It gives new meaning to “the rich get richer.”

Taking the overall scheme to another level, consider this: those same heavy hitters who have unfettered access to financial information can also choose, at opportune moments, to expose certain scandals and crimes (not their own, of course).

In this way, they can, at their whim, cripple governments, banks, and corporations. They can cripple investment houses, insurance companies, and hedge funds. Or, alternatively, they can merely blackmail these organizations.

We think we know how scandals are exposed by the press, but actually we don’t. Tips are given to people who give them to other people. Usually, the first clue that starts the ball rolling comes from a source who remains in the shadows.

What we are talking about here is the creation and managing of realities on all sides, including the choice of when and where and how to provide a glimpse of a crime or scandal.

It’s likely that the probe Ron Paul had been pushing—audit the Federal Reserve—has already been done by those who control unlimited global surveillance [NSA]. They already know far more than any Congressional investigation will uncover. If they know the deepest truths, they can use them to blackmail, manipulate, and control the Fed itself.

The information matrix can be tapped into and plumbed, and it can also be used to dispense choice clusters of data that end up constituting the media reality of painted pictures which, every day, tell billions of people “what’s news.”

In this global-surveillance world, we need to ask new questions and think along different lines now.

For example, how long before the mortgage-derivative crisis hit did the Masters of Surveillance know, from spying on bank records, that insupportable debt was accumulating at a lethal pace? What did they do with that information?

When did they know that at least a trillion dollars was missing from Pentagon accounting books (as Donald Rumsfeld eventually publicly admitted on September 10, 2001), and what did they do with that information?

Did they discover where billions of dollars, in cash, shipped to post-war Iraq, disappeared to?

When did they know the details of the Libor rate-fixing scandal? Press reports indicate that Barclays was trying to rig interest rates as early as January 2005.

Have they tracked, in detail, the men responsible for recruiting hired mercenaries and terrorists, who eventually wound up in Syria pretending to be an authentic rebel force?

Have they discovered the truth about how close or how far away Iran is from producing a nuclear weapon?

Have they collected detailed accounts of the most private plans of Bilderberg, CFR, and Trilateral Commission leaders?

For global surveillance kings, what we think of as the future is, in many respects the present and the past.

It’s a new world. These overseers of universal information-detection can enter and probe the most secret caches of data, collect, collate, cross reference, and assemble them into vital bottom-lines. By comparison, an operation like WikiLeaks is an old Model-T Ford puttering down a country road.

Previously, we thought we needed to look over the shoulders of the men who were committing major crimes out of public view. But now, if we want to be up to date, we also have to factor in the men who are spying on those criminals, who are gathering up those secrets and using them to commit their own brand of meta-crime.

And in the financial arena, that means we think of Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan as perpetrators, yes, but we also think about the men who already know everything about GS and Morgan, and are using this knowledge to steal sums that might make GS and Morgan blush with envy.

This is what we are dealing with. This is the way, for example, governments and administrations can be brought down.

It all depends on whom the NSA wants to support and whom it wants to get rid of.

The NSA is not only the swamp that needs to be drained, it is the agency looking at and probing the swamp and extracting crucial information for itself and its close friends.

To accumulate more power.

To forward its agenda of…security? Yes, if by security we mean endless conquest and Empire and control.

Ah, there they are. The NSA, the obsessed technocrats who believe they are masters of all they survey. And spy on.

Michael Flynn: minding our own business vs. saving the world

Michael Flynn: minding our own business vs. saving the world

The global snake wears a sneer because it’s his party.

by Jon Rappoport

February 16, 2017

Flynn talked to some Russian and said the US under Trump might ease sanctions against Russia? This was the high crime? This was why he had to go?

What sanctions? Imposed for what purpose? What are all these people in Washington talking about?

Let’s go back to the beginning.

At the founding of the Republic, there was a chance to mind our own national business, and a few years later, outgoing President George Washington warned the country to stay away from entangling foreign alliances.

But of course he was ignored.

So flashing forward, now we hear about interconnected, global, “inevitable situations” which require our attention.

Interest rates, trade imbalances, taxes, wars, foreign military bases, binding treaties, unfriendly regimes, national debt, loans unpaid; on and on it goes—as if these cluster-problems arose out of some sacred duty to solve other people’s difficulties; and we’re locked in, we have to meddle, we have to be the meddling messiah, we’re deep in a massive soap opera called interdependence.

Well, sure, once you start walking down that road, things will pile up. They’ll get worse. Last year’s obligations will double this year. You have to speak sixteen languages at once to satisfy all your global partners, and you speak them out of the side of your mouth because you’re conniving and cheating and stealing and killing along the way. Just as they are. It’s all one big terminally failing family called It Takes a Village.

The sun can’t set outside your home anymore, it has to set on every conniving government on the face of the Earth, and we’re on board.

Newsflash: This isn’t planetary love, it’s not one united human race, it’s an infection.

Take the recent case of Michael Flynn, who was forced out of the Trump administration because he possibly talked with some Russian ambassador about easing US sanctions against Russia.

The US sanctions were launched in the first place because Russia annexed the Ukrainian territory of Crimea. And that was our business because…?

Here from Wikipedia is a bit of background on the annexation. Note the jungle of entangling alliances involved, the agreements, the rules and regulations—NONE of which America needed to be concerned about. Therefore, why did we lay on sanctions? My comments below are in brackets.

“Ukraine considers the annexation to be a violation of international law [international law? who cares?] and agreements by Russia, including Agreement on Establishing the Commonwealth of Independent States in 1991 [the what?], Helsinki Accords [so what?], Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons of 1994 [and this relates to Crimea how?] and Treaty on friendship, cooperation and partnership between the Russian Federation and Ukraine [none of our business].”

“The event was condemned by many world leaders [so what?] as an illegal annexation of Ukrainian territory, in violation of the 1994 Budapest Memorandum [the what?] on sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, signed by Russia. It led to the other members of the then G8 [who cares about the G8?] suspending Russia from the group, then introducing the first round of sanctions against the country. The United Nations General Assembly [your basic global meddlers] also rejected the vote and annexation, adopting a non-binding resolution [busy work by meddlers] affirming the ‘territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognised borders’.”

“Following a Crimean referendum [none of our business], held on 16 March 2014, in which separation was favoured by a large majority of voters, the UN resolution [who cares?] also ‘underscores that the referendum having no validity, cannot form the basis for any alteration of the status of Crimea.’ The resolution calls upon all States and international organizations [who cares?] not to recognize or to imply the recognition of Russia’s annexation. In 2016, UN General Assembly [major meddlers] reaffirmed non-recognition of the annexation and condemned ‘the temporary occupation of part of the territory of Ukraine — the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol’ [blah blah].”

We could take all this back further to the 2014 uprising/coup in the Ukraine, and the role of outsiders (e.g., CIA). But you get the idea.

Once you start down the road of making alliances and agreements with other governments, you’re in the web. You’re in the nest of vipers. You are a viper.

The US population has been thoroughly conditioned to expect their government to intervene in crises at the drop of a hat, “on the side of the angels,” of course.

But each “solution” digs us deeper in the fundamental problem. Meddling.

Once meddling is established as a way of life, the military-industrial complex and the Deep State can feel secure in the knowledge that any intervention and any war will play well—because all they have to do is promote war as a way of offering “freedom and peace to the less fortunate.”

War is peace.


The Matrix Revealed

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, The Matrix Revealed, click here.)


Foreign entanglements are justified on the basis of high-level, complex, sophisticated baloney cut six ways from Sunday.

This is the swamp nobody in Washington wants to talk about.

Well, there was one man who did. Ron Paul.

He saw through the whole hissing, hideous, life-sucking, money-making, evil scam.

He was cut off at the knees by the media networks when he ran for president. And the movement behind him paved the way for Trump.

As I’ve written before, Trump needs to sit down and have a long talk with Ron.

A very serious talk.

If Trump actually cares.

Trump is the target in the cross hairs for the entire US intelligence community, the State Department, parts of the Pentagon, the defense contractors, and numerous other Washington and media sluts. To say nothing of the Rockefeller Globalists. They want wars. They need to know he’ll play ball. They don’t like even a hint that he’ll go in a different direction. They want the whole pie.

Foreign entanglements.

George Washington warned against them.

And ever since he was ignored, the chickens have been coming home to roost.

Judge’s order to block Trump’s immigration travel ban is ridiculous

Judge’s order to block Trump’s immigration travel ban is ridiculous

by Jon Rappoport

February 5, 2017

The Judge is playing games. He’s lying.

He obviously doesn’t like Trump’s immigration travel ban, so he’s cooking up reasons for slapping a temporary restraining order on it.

A freshman in law school could point out holes in those reasons big enough to drive a fleet of trucks through.

On February 3rd, Judge James Robart issued his order (Case 2:17-cv-00141-JLR Document 52 Filed 02/03/17 Page 1 of 7): he temporarily restrained the federal government from enforcing Trump’s immigration travel ban.

The Judge’s order is absurd for several reasons.

First of all, objections to Trump’s ban were entered into the court by the States of Washington and Minnesota, as the “injured parties.” But Judge Robart announced his decision would affect all States—the whole country—because immigration law must be applied “uniformly” across the board.

Perhaps, but nowhere is it stated that a temporary restraining order (TRO) issued by a judge must be applied uniformly across the whole country.

Since when is a TRO the same as a law?

Speaking of law, no final legal/constitutional decision has been rendered re Trump’s Executive Order on immigration. It’s still up for grabs. The Judge is just writing script to suit his bias.

The Judge may not like Trump’s ban; clearly, he does not. The Judge may believe the ban will be overturned by a higher court because it is unconstitutional. The Judge may think Trump is committing an immoral act. But all that is beside the point. The only thing Judge Robart was empowered to do was issue a TRO or not issue a TRO. Period.

Why should he have the right to apply his TRO, not a law, to the whole of the United States? Maybe he’s a god we haven’t been told about. If so, I’d like to see the evidence.

Next point: The judge made a number of comments to justify issuing his the TRO: “The States are likely to suffer irreparable harm in the absence of [my] preliminary relief [restraining order].”

That is absurd on its face. Irreparable harm? This means harm that can never be fixed? Come on. The Judge may as well have said, “I’m biased. I don’t like Trump’s EO and I don’t like him. So when I said ‘irreparable’, I exaggerated by a few thousand miles. Ha-ha.”

The Judge wrote: “The EO [Trump’s Executive Order limiting immigration] adversely affects the States’ residents in areas of employment, education, business, family relations, and freedom to travel.”

More fluff, nonsense, and outright deception. Does the Judge seriously expect us to believe that the banning of 35,000 more refugees than the 2016 federal cap is going to decimate the States?

(In his EO, Trump wrote: “I hereby proclaim that the entry of more than 50,000 refugees in fiscal year 2017 would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and thus suspend any such entry until such time as I determine that additional admissions would be in the national interest.” An NPR political editor stated: “For 2016, the cap was 85,000.” The difference is 35,000.)

Judge Robart wrote: “In addition, the States themselves are harmed by virtue of the damage…inflicted upon the operations and missions of their public universities…as well as injury to the States’ operations, tax bases, and public funds.”

Same objections as above. Judge Robart is stretching the truth to the breaking point. His definition of “harm” and “irreparable harm” are coming from his private dictionary of exaggerations. He’s winging it.

Case closed.

Except it isn’t.

A Judge who can take powers not granted to him, who can invent, out of whole cloth, dire consequences where none exist, is hustling the system he’s sworn to defend.

Do Chicago gang thugs want to stage a revolution with Trump?

Do Chicago gang thugs want to stage a revolution with Trump?

by Jon Rappoport

February 1, 2017

A story out of CBS Local in Chicago (youtube) suggests that gangs in the city want to lower the body count, believe they can, and want to work with Trump on it.

The gangs didn’t have faith in Obama; they do have respect for Trump.

Chicago is Gang Murder Central in the US.

CBS: “The founder and pastor of a megachurch in Ohio told President Donald Trump he has spoken to gang leaders in Chicago who want to work with the White House to reduce violent crime.”

“Dr. Darrell Scott, senior pastor of New Revival Center in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, was a guest of Trump’s at an African-American History Month meeting at the White House. He said he is a ‘black Trump supporter’, and claimed he was ‘contacted by some of the top gang thugs in Chicago for a sit-down’.”

“Taking a swipe at former President Obama, who began his political career as a community organizer in Chicago, Scott said the gangs ‘want to work with the administration … they believe in this administration; they didn’t believe in the prior administration. They told me this outta their mouths’.”

“’They reached out to me [Reverend Scott], because they’re associating me with you [Trump]. They respect you. They believe in what you’re doing, and they want to have a sit-down about lowering that body count. So in a couple weeks, I’m going into Chicago,’ Scott said. ‘I said we’ve got to lower that body count. We don’t want to talk about anything else; get that body count down, and they [gang members] agreed that the principals that can do it – these are guys straight from the streets, no politicians, straight street guys – but they’re going to commit that if they lower that body count, we’ll come in and we’ll do some social programs’.”

“Trump said, ‘I think that’s a great idea, because Chicago is totally out of control’.”

“Chicago had more than 760 murders in 2016, the highest number in 19 years. The first month of 2017 saw that trend continue, with 51 homicides in January, one more than January 2016.”

“Scott said the gang members who reached out to him want to work with Trump.”

“’They see hope with you [Trump]’, he said.”

“Trump said, ‘I think that’s great’.”

Several points here.

One: If these gang members are in the upper echelon, they can definitely lower the body count in Chicago.

Two: It’s easy to understand why the gangs didn’t have faith in Obama and do have some respect for Trump. Obama was a venal poser. He never approached the gang problem with effective action while he was in office. Trump is a deal maker. What’s being called for here is a deal. Trump sees gang killings in inner cities as a reality that has to be faced. No doubt, Trump’s recent threat to send federal law-enforcement people into Chicago caused gang members to sit down and think a little.

Three: the gang notion of lowering the body count in return for social programs injected into neighborhoods is off the mark. What’s actually needed is jobs. And one of the prime solutions is already in Chicago. It’s there. As in: THERE. It just needs to be expanded. I’ve written about this before, especially in my open letter to Steve Bannon, Trump’s idea man:

“On a search engine, type in ‘urban farms Chicago.’ You’ll see there is actually a directory of such operations. They’re happening. Local people are growing and eating their own food. Some of this food can also be sold for profit. MONEY. JOBS.

“There should be many, many small urban farms…Plots of land where local residents grow and trade and eat their own fresh, clean, nutritious food. It is a revolutionary act.”

“The government provides initial funding in the form of loans. The residents themselves will expand their operations into profit-making ventures; they’ll sell the excess food.”

Get it? It’s not brain surgery. It’s there, for anyone to see. Turn the inner city neighborhoods of Chicago—the gang war zones—into many, many small urban farms.

Can the gangs deal with that?

Can they actually help this program succeed? Can they stop killing people long enough to work on something that lifts people up instead of depositing them into streets with bullets in their bodies?

Can they see that people growing, eating, and selling their own clean, fresh, nutritious food is far better than people selling drugs that destroy lives? That would be a reach.

Can they at least lower the body count and otherwise stand aside and let the inner-city residents of Chicago elevate their lives?

And just as important, can the people of Chicago brush aside the race hustlers and Soros-funded troops and so-called local leaders who have a stake in more death and destruction in the city’s slums? The leaders who thrive, like leeches, on things NOT working out?

A transformation is there, waiting to happen.

It’s not pie in the sky. It’s food in the ground.


Exit From the Matrix

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)


Finally, who is Reverend Darrell Scott, the pastor of a congregation in Cleveland? Does he really have the ear of gang leaders in Chicago? Have they really told him they’re ready to lower the body count in their neighborhoods? Is Scott positioned to be the middle-man in serious negotiations involving the president of the United States?

Regardless, the solution for inner cities equals reducing the power of the gang scourge; and it equals jobs. Urban farms would be a direct-line bootstrap operation, open to every resident. Food, health, money.

Previous administrations in Washington have never considered it.

Will this one?
