How Art Can Heal Mental Illness*

How Art Can Heal Mental Illness*

 By Go Paolo

Merriam-Webster defines art as “the use of skill and creative imagination in creating aesthetic objects such as paintings, music, and sculptures.”

But that is a superficial definition. Art goes beyond definitions but is what enriches life and touches each of us as individuals.  The rapid growths of technology and secularism have not deterred the importance of art but have made it more valuable as more people face stress and mental illness and are in need of the healing power of art:

How art helps heal mental illness:

A comprehensive study was done to prove the many benefits of the various forms of art on patients. Art forms such as music, visual arts, dance, and creative writing were used and produced encouraging results.

Reduces anxiety and stress

Music is one of the most powerful and moving art forms that even the great nihilist himself, Friedrich Nietzsche recognized its value. Listening to music was found not only to reduce stress but also anxiety. Noticeable improvements were made to patients’ well-being and relaxation and reductions in tension, cortisol levels, and heart rate. Making art also has similar effects as another

Making art also has similar effects as another study highlighted. This wasn’t limited to individuals who were excellent artists and the majority of the subjects admitted to having little experience when it came to any form of art. It harkens back to what Aristotle said that art isn’t about the outward appearance but the inward experience. Art is human expression and it’s now medically proven (to a degree) that it has health benefits.

Helps you focus on positive life experiences

Another study was conducted this time on the effects of visual art and it showed how patients; pain tolerance and threshold both increased when exposed to visual stimuli (and music). The study was inspired to help patients deal with the intimidating surroundings of a hospital.

Creating and being exposed to art helps generate positive thoughts. The American Journal of Public Health’s study described the impact of visual art on its patients as “filling occupational voids and distracting thoughts of illness” and “improving flow and spontaneity, expression of grief, positive identity, and social networks.” A study from the University of North Carolina adds to this point emphasizing the healing power of positive emotions and how it forms and strengthens personal relationships and gives individuals more motivation to live.

Helps the body heal and stay healthy

A healthy body leads to a healthy mind – particularly your gut. Eating healthy, sleeping well, and doing physical exercises or yoga all contribute to a healthy bod. But you can also add experiencing magnificent visual imagery through art and nature to this list. A study from the University of California, Berkeley links this experience to boosting the immune system thus lowering chances of diabetes, heart attacks, and other illnesses, which may include mental illnesses.

Dr. Dacher Keitner of the university said, “the beauty promotes healthier levels of cytokines suggests the things people do to experience these emotions – walking in nature, losing oneself to music, beholding art – all have direct inlfuence upon health and life expectancy.”

Will South Africa’s Downgraded Status Pull the Region Down?

Will South Africa’s Downgraded Status Pull the Region Down?

In April, Credit rating agency Standard and Poor’s (S&P) downgraded South Africa’s rating to junk status [GCIS]

Concern about the health of the South African economy and its impact on the rest of the continent has been mounting in recent days.

 

Following the sacking of revered Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan in late March, South Africa’s markets went into a downward spiral as investor confidence took a beating.

A few days later, S&P Global Ratings cut South African foreign debt to sub-investment grade in April.

For its part, Fitch downgraded both the foreign and local currency debt to “junk” status.

Business experts believe that the downgrades will adversely impact the service sector in South Africa, already suffering from economic contraction of 0.3 per cent in Q4 2016.

Jessica Rees-Jones, executive director at civil society group Inyathelo, the South African Institute for Advancement, told Xinhua that about $10 billion will leave the country as investors search for more stable markets elsewhere.

Gordhan was well liked in the business community and his departure upset markets which saw his ouster as a threat to the strength of South Africa’s institutions.

He was replaced with 45-year-old Malusi Knowledge Nkanyezi Gigaba, who was previously the Minister of Home Affairs. He holds a Bachelor of Pedagogics in Education and a Master of Arts degree in Social Policy.

“The cabinet reshuffle [which included Gordhan’s firing] is an attack on the institution of the National Treasury (NT) and as such will trigger multiple downgrades,” warned Peter Attard Montalto, a prominent South African economist.

Such multiple downgrades will pressure South African companies, already reeling from a battered economy in the past three years, to decrease the level of investments they have in other countries in Africa.

Sectors such telecommunications service provision, retail, mining and real estate in neighboring countries are likely to suffer, experts warn.

For now, South African economists acknowledge that the country is in stagnation but are hoping to avoid a second quarter of contraction which technically would trigger a recession.

There are signs that the country will narrowly avoid a recession.

Official data showed that retail sales bounced back in March to 0.8 per cent year on year growth, beating forecasts of a 0.7 per cent contraction.

Better still, South Africa is emerging from one of its worst droughts and expects its maize harvest to jump 87 per cent this year.

The boost in maize output has pushed the International Monetary Fund to predict that South Africa’s GDP will grow by one per cent, not 0.8 as previously forecast, in 2017.

It Took a Nine-year-old Muslim Boy 35 Seconds to Rumble Theresa May*

It Took a Nine-year-old Muslim Boy 35 Seconds to Rumble Theresa May*

By James Wright

 

It looks like even nine-year-olds can see through Theresa May. On ITV News, Hasnain Nawaz questioned the sitting Prime Minister’s ‘strong and stable’ sloganeering and called on her to “actually do something”:

Weak and wobbly?

Nawaz specified that he is not “following” May. In a display of raw, childhood common sense, he pointed out that May’s rhetoric does not match her actions:

“She’s not really doing anything to be honest, all she’s saying is ‘oh, this, oh, that, I’m strong,’ and all of this.

Well she’s not really doing anything by saying all of that is she?”

ITV invited Nawaz on the show after he asked Jeremy Corbyn a question about “strong and stable leadership” in Peterborough. He also explained why he felt “inspired” by Corbyn:

“He helps the homeless. Everyone talks about needing to help the homeless, well Jeremy Corbyn does it. School education… he does it all for me”

By contrast, May wants to take away free school meals for primary school pupils like Nawaz. She will replace them with breakfast, which amounts to another cut of £650m per year. Meanwhile, the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) confirmed reports from teachers and parents that the Conservatives are bringing the  ‘deepest cuts’ to education for 30 years.

Joining Nawaz, a BBC Question Time audience member also hit out at the lack of substance in the Conservative campaign. The audience member said he’d bet his wife £10 that Work and Pensions Secretary Damian Green would say “coalition of chaos” and “strong and stable government” during his first contribution. It might be the easiest £10 he’s ever earned.

Robot rhetoric

The Conservative campaign indicates that his wife was up against terrible odds. During an interview with Radio Derby, Theresa May epitomised this. Host Chris Doidge asked the Prime Minister if she knew what a ‘mugwump’ was. Boris Johnson had used the word to personally attack Jeremy Corbyn earlier that day. Then, like a robot, May responded:

“What I recognise is that what we need in this country is strong and stable leadership.”

The collective face-palm was tangible. Journalists from The Sun and The Guardian alike expressed utter disbelief. The mindless catchphrase only highlights the Prime Minister’s inability to defend her party’s record:

Even nine-year-olds can see through May’s electioneering. From pretending opposition parties are blocking Brexit, to scapegoating E.U. interference in the election, almost all of the Conservatives’ movements amount to naked electioneering. Brexit is happening. It’s about what type of country we want to build outside the E.U. A civil meritocracy where everyone has the opportunity to succeed through universal education, healthcare and housing. Or a rigged economy where we rent our essential services from the already rich. Nawaz hasn’t reached double figures yet, but he gets it.

Africa’s Auschwitz: The Concentration Camp the West Erased from History*

Africa’s Auschwitz: The Concentration Camp the West Erased from History*

 

By Johnny Liberty

 

 

Perhaps no atrocity has been more extensively covered than the Holocaust carried out by the Third Reich in Germany. Yet few Americans are aware that there was a holocaust committed by the Second Reich 40 years prior.

 

While Adolf Hitler is a household name, synonymous with evil, his predecessor, Kaiser Wilhelm II, is far less recognizable — although many of his crimes were just as bad, if not worse, than Hitler’s.

Wilhelm II was crowned in 1888 and launched a “New Course” in German foreign relations. His policies ultimately resulted in Germany’s involvement and eventual defeat in World War I. Despite his notable involvement in World War I, little else is taught about Wilhelm’s reign, in American schools.

 

The Beginning of the 1st German Holocaust:

Germany’s African reign of terror began in 1883, when they raised their flag in South West Africa, heralding the first conquest of the Second Reich’s African empire. Wilhelm II later used the land (now the country of Namibia) as a testing ground for his Lebensraum policy.

Wilhelm II’s Lebensraum, or “living space,” policy was advocated by 19th-century German geographer Friedrich Ratzel, who believed that a race’s survival was dependent on migration. Wilhelm II used this theory to advance a policy with the goal of creating a “New Germany” on African Soil.

The disastrous consequences of this policy led to the suffering of tens of thousands of indigenous African people. Similar to the Jew’s treatment during World War II, the native Herero and Nama people were labeled an “Inferior race” and watched as their human rights were repeatedly violated.

After two decades of mistreatment, the Herero people revolted. In 1904, Germany responded by dispatching 14,000 Soldiers to quell the insurgent colony. After the brutal campaign to defeat the Herero ended, German Lieutenant-General Lothar von Trotha announced a new disturbing policy, saying,

“I believe that the nation [the Herero] as such should be annihilated. Only following this cleansing can something new emerge, which will remain.”

Africa’s Auschwitz: Death Island, the ‘Original’ German Concentration Camp

“Death Island,” also known as Shark Island, served as an ideal location for a prison camp due to its low possibility of escape. General Trotha’s troops transported the defeated Herero and Nama people to the island and several other concentration camps within the German colony. Prisoners were transported in cattle cars and served as slave labour for the new colony’s railway system, along with a number of other construction and demolition projects.

Labor conditions on the island were extremely dangerous, resulting in a high number of fatalities. One German Technician noted that his 1,600-slave workforce had decreased to only 30-40 available labourers. By late 1906, at least seven slaves were dying daily due to the grisly working conditions.

Food and provisions on the island were also extremely scarce, as witnesses recalled, “prisoners fought like wild animals and killed each other to secure a share.” Conditions on the island continued to deteriorate and prisoners starved to death or committed suicide to escape the nightmarish conditions. Eventually, German soldiers began referring to it as a “Death Camp”.

One of the first civilians to visit the island briefly described the horrific scene he saw:

“A woman, who was so weak from illness that she could not stand, crawled to some of the other prisoners to beg for water. The overseer fired five shots at her. Two shots hit her: one in the thigh, the other smashing her forearm…in the night she died.”

 

During their imprisonment, captives were frequently whipped, forced into unsanitary living conditions where diseases such as typhoid rapidly spread, and received virtually no medical care. Herero women were photographed being raped and the images were sent back to Germany as “pornographic postcards.”

German scientists also used the island and its prisoners to conduct medical experiments. Shark Island camp physician, Dr. Bofinger injected prisoners with a toxic cocktail of arsenic and opium in attempts to determine if scurvy was a contagious disease.

As bodies continued to pile up, researchers began to perform autopsies on the dead to conduct further experiments. According to German medical statistics, 778 autopsies were conducted in just one year.

After they concluded their experiments, the Germans forced Herero women to boil the heads of their own people and clean them, so they could be sent back to Germany for further research. In all, Over 3,000 skulls of Herero people were sent to German Universities, which they used in an attempt to prove the similarity between the Herero people and apes.

The human cost of Germany’s African Holocaust.

In 1907, German officials finally relented to domestic and international pressure, and shut down “Death Island.” While there is no ‘official’ death toll of the prisoners held on Death Island, the German Imperial Colonial Office estimates 7,682 Herero and 2,000 Nama people died in colonial concentration camps in South West Africa. Historians estimate that, of these deaths, as many as 4,000 may have occurred at “Death Island.”

The consequences of German colonialization in Namibia are staggering. It is estimated that, in a matter of decades, the Herero population was reduced from 100,000 to less than 15,000, and the Nama population was cut in half.

A report released by the United Nations in 1985 listed the German holocaust in Africa as the first genocide of the 20th century.

While Germany’s outright murder of Africans in Namibia temporarily ceased, as any student of history can tell you, this would not be the last attempted genocide by a German ruler. In fact, many people would say Wilhelm II ‘perfected’ the development of concentration camps, a model later employed by Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich.

Sex Trafficking Victim Receives Compensation from Indian Gov’t*

Sex Trafficking Victim Receives Compensation from Indian Gov’t*

By Brianna Acuesta

This teenager, who was sold for sex by traffickers, just got paid by the government to go to school.

When Devi was a young girl, her life took a horrific turn when she became a victim of trafficking was sold for sex in Mumbai before being rescued. With the help of a shelter that saves and rehabilitates girls that have been trafficked for sex, Devi has recovered from this tragic part of her life as best she could and is now looking forward to the future.

Despite the taboo nature of women having sex before marriage in India, even if the intercourse was a result of rape or trafficking, Devi remains hopeful that she can still lead a fulfilling life doing what she loves by not allowing her past to define her. She has high hopes for her career, and has even declared that it’s her dream to become a doctor.

“I want to study science after high school. I know it is difficult, but I have the will to study. I was only unsure of the money,” she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

Devi is currently living at the shelter that has helped her move forward from her time as a sex trafficking victim and was one of thousands of girls to send a request to the government of the western state of Maharashtra for compensation to pay for her schooling. The government recently deposited 75,000 rupees ($1,150) into Devi’s bank account to help pay for school, and she will receive another 225,000 rupees when she turns 18.

 

Maharashtra is one of the many states in India that has a high rate of girls and women being trafficked and sexually abused or sold, some as young as 6 years old after being abducted or sold by their own parents. As India faces pressure, both externally and internally, to crack down on perpetrators of trafficking and sexual violence as well as provide safe havens and compensation for victims, each state has developed its own program for how to combat these horrible crimes.

The state developed a financial aid scheme in 2013 to compensate victims of rape, sexual assault, and acid attacks, but its scheme is set to be reviewed as it isn’t yielding the results that human rights advocates hoped for. In the last few years, the state has received 7,500 requests for compensation and they have offered payments to 4,500 girls. However, Devi was one of the first to actually receive her payments, as with most other cases the government has claimed that there is a lack of funding. Devi’s success can in part be attributed to the International Justice Mission, who has worked with her for the last two years by following up endlessly with different departments.

“This is the first time compensation has come through for a case with our follow-up. We are now encouraged and are pursuing compensation for four to five other cases of minor victims who are eligible for compensation,” said Melissa Walavalkar, IJM’s director of Justice Solutions.

This is especially promising for the others that the IJM is representing, but for the thousands of other girls still waiting for financial aid, the wait could be endless. Human rights groups also point to some of the restrictions in the scheme as being unfair, like the rule that only girls who were abused during the time that the scheme started and onwards are eligible. One lawyer, Wesley Menezes, has been tirelessly fighting this stipulation because he is representing a then-13-year-old girl who was raped and forced to marry her rapist to ‘avoid shame’ in 2012, just before the scheme started.

However, the fact that a payment has been made at all proves that the scheme could be promising, though not in its current form. Critics are hoping that a review of the scheme will open up the payments to more women and girls and that more funding will be made available to actually deliver the payments.

Wikileaks and How Israel Enslaved the British*

Wikileaks and How Israel Enslaved the British*

By Ian Greenhalgh

[Editor’s note: Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practise to deceive…

While few would dispute that a tangled web surrounds his public image, many fail to discern that Assange is practising deception; in fact, it is his raison d’etre, he and his Wikileaks organisation are a front for what the CIA correctly identified as a “hostile intelligence service”; VT will go further and identify them as Israel’s Mossad.

Furthermore, the unstinting support given to Assange and Wikileaks by Nigel Farage and his UKIP party is a clear indicator that they too, are serving Israeli masters and have been ever since they appeared on the British political scene in the 1990s.

Let us step back in time to the mid-90s, a time when Britain was coming to the end of a 15 year rule by the Conservative Party, most of it under Margaret Thatcher. The Labour Party was undergoing a resurgence due to the leadership of John Smith and the disarray within the Conservative Party caused by the thorny issue of the EU and the Maastricht Treaty.

Labour Party leader Neil Kinnock had failed to win the 1992 election, largely due to poor handling of the media and a failure to sell Kinnock to the British people – he was too Welsh and too ginger and Labour never managed to market him effectively, the popular support within the electorate was there but the marketing savvy was lacking.

The Conservatives under Thatcher in the 1980s had transformed British politics by hiring the prestigious Saatchi and Saatchi PR firm and making politics more about the image presented to the public than actual policies. Kinnock’s failure in 92 began a new phase in the history of the Labour Party as party insiders realised that, to beat the Conservatives they had to play the same game where PR spin was king and policies a distant second in importance.

John Smith replaced Kinnock and was hugely popular both with his own party and the British electorate, he was seen as a near certainty to win the 1997 election – sadly he died of a heart attack in 1994 and was replaced by the man who today is best remembered as the war criminal that followed George W Bush into wars in Afghanistan and Iraq like a faithful lap dog, one Tony Blair.

Tony Blair was an Israeli asset from the moment he first entered politics under the sponsorship of Zionist Jew Levy Mendelsohn, a man Blair would make Lord Levy shortly after becoming Prime Minister. In partnership with Peter Mandleson, a close friend of the Rothschilds, Blair destroyed the Labour Party, turning it into ‘New Labour’ and moving it from a left wing, socialist party to a centre-right, populist puppet that emulated the PR spin tactics of the 1980s Conservatives while slavishly following the directions of their Israeli masters.

All the other New Labour leaders were stooges too, Jack Straw, Gordon Brown, all of them, only John Prescott remained from the old, socialist Labour and he likely only got to remain because he knew where the bodies were buried, so to speak.

Under Blair and New Labour, Britain entered a new and shameful period where we functioned as the 51st state of the USA and our armed forces became an adjunct of those of the U.S., dutifully working alongside the Yanks to fight the War On Terror in Afghanistan and Iraq and share in the heroin, oil and stolen resources profits.

During the Blair years, the Conservative party fell into utter disarray under a series of unpopular and ineffective leaders such as William Hague and Iain Duncan Smith (yes, no-one remembers them in Britain either), torn apart by a deep divide over the issue of Britain’s membership of the EU. Out of this divide came Nigel Farage and UKIP.

Farage, a former City banker, formed UKIP in order to attract away from the Conservative Party those who were referred to as ‘Euro Sceptics’ and wanted Britain to either leave the E.U. entirely or at least change drastically the nature of Britain’s membership of the E.U. With the benefit of hindsight, it is now clear that Farage and UKIP was an Israeli operation to weaken and destabilise the Conservative party, thus allowing Tony Blair and New Labour to enjoy almost 15 years in power. Thus, Britain became an Israeli puppet.

While UKIP never became a major force in British parliamentary politics, they served a vital role in the Israeli takeover.

By 2010 and the election of David Cameron, Israeli control had been completely solidified; Cameron had been an Israeli asset since at least the early 90s and he continued to follow Tel-Aviv’s orders every bit as obediently as Blair had before him.

Fast forward to 2016 and the infamous referendum on membership of the E.U., now universally referred to as ‘BREXIT’. Cameron dutifully did as he was ordered and lost, Farage won, a clear case of Israeli controlling both sides and ensuring they get the result they desired – Britain out of Europe, thus destabilising both the E.U. and Britain itself.

Having served their roles and achieved their assigned tasks, Farage and Cameron both retired from politics post-BREXIT, Cameron to enjoy his vast personal wealth, Farage to float around the fringes of politics, occasionally sticking his head up to support his fellow Israeli stooges – best evidenced by his visit to the US during the last election in order to make a few speeches praising his good pal Donald Trump.

So now you have the background to where we are today in Britain, a nation where the ruling Conservative Party is every bit as much under Israeli-control as New Labour had been under Blair, meaning we have been under the Zionist thumb for the last 20 years.

A glimmer of hope does exist in the form of Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, a true socialist of the old Labour party who has been attacked and slandered at almost every turn as an anti-semite and labelled as ‘unelectable’ by the British media, despite enjoying massive popular support amongst the British people. Of course, Corbyn is no anti-semite, he is simply labelled that because he is not an Israeli asset, the first leader of either the Labour or Conservative parties for over two decades who is not a puppet of Tel-Aviv.

Corbyn has attempted to purge the Labour Party of it’s Blairites, those who have taken the dirty shekel proferred by the Zionist criminals. That task remains incomplete, hence we have witnessed many attacks on Corbyn from within his own party. Sadly, if he loses the upcoming general election, Corbyn will probably not get the chance to complete the purge of the Blairites as a challenge to his leadership of the party will almost certainly arise.

In recent weeks, Tony Blair himself has mooted a potential return to politics, this is a clear indicator that the Zionists are concerned that Corbyn has had at least a measure of success in his campaign to rebuild the Labour Party into it’s original, socialist form and remove the Israeli hegemony it has been enslaved under; hence they are threatening to reintroduce their faithful servant Blair and use him to undermine Corbyn while dividing the Labour party in much the same way they used their boy Farage to deeply wound the Conservatives in the 1990s.

When Assange stepped onto the balcony of the Ecuadorean Embassy this week and gave his ‘can’t forgive or forget’ speech and stating that ‘the war is far from over’ he was reading directly from the agenda set for him by Tel-Aviv. The Swedish rape charges that have just been dropped were a complete fabrication, part of a psyop designed to lend credibility to Assange, to paint him as a real deal fugitive from justice who was the sworn enemy of ‘the powers that be’.

Of course, this is a total inversion of the truth, Assange and Wikileaks along with the British government, the British media and the British Establishment are all on Tel-Aviv’s payroll, all faithful servants, willing conspirators and faithful partners in crime to that evil Zionist regime. Farage too, although now relegated to the sidelines, remains ready, waiting and more than willing to continue to serve those same masters. Ian]

Daily Beast
Wikileaks: Inside the Farage-Assange-Trump Connection

When Julian Assange sought refuge in 2011 at an embassy in the heart of London, only one of Britain’s political parties was willing to offer support to the exile in their midst.

Nigel Farage’s U.K. Independence Party, which seemed a fringe movement at the time but became the driving force behind Brexit, swung into action and campaigned against the demand that Assange be returned to Sweden for a police interview on allegations of rape.

Farage and his UKIP colleagues have spoken out publicly in support of Assange numerous times since 2011, but leaked emails seen by The Daily Beast reveal the true extent to which the party apparatus tried to assist the founder of WikiLeaks, which the head of the CIA has since described as a “hostile intelligence service” that cooperated with Russian agents.

The episode raises further questions about links between Farage, Assange and the Russian government. Farage, who is also a favoured friend of U.S. President Donald Trump, was spotted emerging from a meeting with Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in March.

Internal UKIP memos reveal the relationship went back much further: Assange and his lawyer were given the opportunity to contribute directly to speeches given by UKIP on the floor of the European Parliament while branches of the party in and around London were told to send activists to protest against Assange’s proposed judicial surrender to the authorities.

“We need bodies,” read an email request sent to local UKIP associations asking them to send two or three people each as an “astroturf” protest against Assange’s plight when he appeared in court in London in January 2011.

Farage and his UKIP colleagues also reportedly met privately with Assange’s lawyer Mark Stephens, who was repeatedly offered the chance to help craft the party’s words on the case, according to the leaked emails.

Stephens was asked if he or Assange would like to meet a UKIP member of the European Parliament, Gerrard Batten, on January 31 that year “in order to discuss bringing out issues in the case.”

He was asked again if he wished “to include a few points to get the message across” on February 5, 2011, before Batten was due to speak in the European Parliament. Batten asked Stephens again if he had “any points that you feel I should or should not mention in the few minutes I get to speak” on February 11.

Batten addressed the European Parliament, standing at Farage’s right hand, on February 14, 2011,. where he raised the prospect that Assange was being mistreated because he was “a political dissident.” He returned to the case in June 2011, telling the parliament in Brussels that the U.S. “need him locked up somewhere” while they work out how to prosecute him.

The UKIP MEP also made a submission on behalf of Assange in his case against extradition, which went all the way to Britain’s Supreme Court in 2012. Last year, Batten wrote on his blog that Assange’s stay in the embassy of Ecuador had been tantamount to “arbitrary arrest and imprisonment.”

When news broke on Friday that Sweden would no longer pursue the allegations against Assange after a seven-year standoff while he hid in an embassy out of the reach of British law enforcement, Batten told The Daily Beast he had never taken a position on the guilt or innocence of Assange.

“I don’t really have a view about Mr. Assange. My involvement with him was regarding my opposition to the European Arrest Warrant,” he said. “At the time, eminent British lawyers who looked at it said this would never make it to an English court—these kind of accusations. It didn’t sound very sound in the first place.”

Assange hailed Sweden’s decision to stop pursuing the allegations and celebrated the release of Chelsea Manning—one of the first major WikiLeaks leakers—in a speech from the balcony of the embassy in London’s Mayfair.

“We have today won an important victory, but the road is far from over. The proper war is just commencing,” he said, promising to accelerate the distribution of material about the CIA.

The standoff will continue because there is still an outstanding warrant for Assange’s arrest over skipping bail.

Batten told The Daily Beast he had attended Assange’s lavish 40th birthday party in 2010 but had not met with him since. He said he does not recall whether Stephens or Assange took up his offer to help with his speeches. He also said he had received no donations from anyone connected to WikiLeaks or the Russian government. “If only these people would offer me money, I’d have the luxury of refusing it,” he said.

UKIP has repeatedly denied co-operating with Russia, Russian front organizations, or taking funds from the Kremlin—which would be illegal under British law—but Farage, who was one of the first foreign politicians to meet with Trump after his election, has called for improved relations between Russia, Britain, and the U.S. He also described Vladimir Putin as the foreign leader he most admires.

Last week, Farage refused once again to answer questions about his recent visit to see Assange in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. “That has nothing to do with you,” he snapped at a Die Zeit reporter. “It was a private meeting.”

He has claimed that he met Assange as a journalist—not as a political go-between—but no interview has appeared since the March 9 meeting.

In the same interview, Farage also failed to disclose whether he received payments for his regular appearances on RT, a news channel funded by the Russian government, which paid Assange to produce his own show in 2012.

The secrecy surrounding Farage’s meeting with Assange, prompted speculation that he may have been sent as an emissary from someone in Trump’s orbit. Farage is close to Trump, he has also met the political operative Roger Stone who claimed to have a back-channel to Assange last summer.

Farage has denied that he was carrying a secret message to or from Assange, whose WikiLeaks organization has been accused of influencing the result of last year’s U.S. presidential election with the help of Russian hackers.

One of the UKIP candidates contesting Britain’s election next month told The Daily Beast that there is nothing suspicious about the attitude towards Russia taken by Farage and his party. Nigel Sussman, the parliamentary candidate for Edmonton in North London, says it’s a natural meeting of minds.

“Russia is very credible and commonsensical—and UKIP is very credible and commonsensical,” he said. “There’s a synergy of views there.”

Sussman has a more intimate view of Russia than most British politicians. He traveled to Crimea last month as a guest of the Russian parliament, who paid for internal flights, accommodation and food. Sussman says he paid for his own round-trip flights to Russia.

Sussman, the chair of UKIP’s Ilford association, who was on the trip with another former UKIP candidate, met with the local pro-Russian officials and toured the streets of former eastern
Ukraine talking to local residents accompanied by cameras from Russia’s state-owned TV Channel 1. Although most of the international community regards Moscow’s covert occupation and annexation of Crimea following as stage-managed vote as illegal and illegitimate, based on his interviews, Sussman says: “Crimea had a perfectly legitimate referendum in my opinion.”

As a result, he has submitted a report to UKIP’s National Executive Committee, which calls for a policy change—demanding that sanctions should be lifted against Russia.

“As far as I can see there don’t seem to be a lot of people standing up for Russia right now,” he said. Is UKIP the most pro-Russian party? “Yes, I think it is.”

Sussman is, however, hopeful that Trump will ease relations between Moscow and the West.

 “I have high hopes for Trump because Trump is going to meet Putin. I think he has said it plain: he wants to be friends with Russia. That sounds like an eminently sensible position for God’s sake!”

The UKIP candidate insisted that there was no evidence that Putin’s regime had helped Trump into office, although the U.S. intelligence community is on the record and unanimous in its conviction that Russia tried to influence the outcome. He also explained away Moscow’s reported munificence towards Marine Le Pen. “What happened was Le Pen tried to get a loan from French banks and none of the French banks would lend her any money—and that’s outrageous… It’s a bit like UKIP, I mean God help us!”

The bottom line: Le Pen’s party received millions of dollars in loans in 2014 from a now defunct Russian bank, and, whether coincidentally or out of conviction, her minions, too, endorsed the Crimean annexation.

The two representatives from Britain on the Crimea tour this year were not joined by any members of Le Pen’s National Front, but the guests included an unlikely array of minor party politicians like Jaroslav Holik from a Czech party with links to Le Pen, or the son of Serbia’s Vojislav Seselj, who was acquitted of war crimes and crimes against humanity by a United Nations tribunal in the Hague.

“It’s a collection of odds and sods; far left or far right will do, as long as they are open to some Russian support. Some of these are full Russian puppets like the Serbian Radical Party,” said Neil Barnett, the chief executive of Istok Associates, a corporate intelligence and investigations consultancy.

There is evidence that Russia helped UKIP secure Brexit—using its army of online trolls and bots—but there is no proof of collusion or direct funding from the Kremlin, or assistance from WikiLeaks.

Arron Banks, the British businessman who was once UKIP’s biggest donor and set up the unofficial Brexit campaign group Leave.EU, says he has a good relationship with Russia—including long boozy lunches with the Russian ambassador—but says there has been no monetary donation either directly or through his array of offshore companies.

Banks, who was pictured in the entourage that met Trump with Farage in the days just after Trump won the election, gave an extraordinary interview to the Observer newspaper in London last month in which he admitted that his Russian wife had the profile of a Russian spy, then suddenly denied that Russia had bankrolled Brexit—unprompted—and repeatedly defended Putin.

“What you’re talking about is the degree to which the Russians actually—let’s say they influenced the Brexit vote. Say I’m pro-Putin. Nigel said he’s not anti-Putin, if that’s the right word. But all we’ve said is that there are elements of what Russians do that we don’t disagree with. We don’t agree with everything they’re doing, like murdering journalists in the street,” he said.

This “joke” is typical of Banks, who ensures it’s hard to know exactly how seriously his words should be taken at any given moment.

When his old pal Farage was spotted leaving the Ecuadorian embassy in March, original reports said it was unclear why he had been inside the building—not least since Farage claimed to have forgotten.

A newspaper later reported that he had indeed been holding secret talks with Assange, and Banks wrote on Twitter: “Well he didn’t go for drinks with the ambassador did he?”

Another multi-millionaire with loose-lips, like Trump, Banks seems to revel in offering glimmers of a sprawling axis that runs from Washington D.C. to Moscow via London—and a tiny sliver of Ecuadorian sovereignty.

Whether Assange makes it outside the embassy in the coming days or if he continues to hide from justice—the game of shadows will continue.

America’s New Syrian Army*

By Gordon Duff

War, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing…. other than keeping the rich very rich and the rest of us scared and easily manipulated…

[ Editor’s note: The polemic below began after Michael Shrimpton informed us that the BBC did a hit piece on us yesterday, if we could, we would remind the BBC of just a couple of things:

  • The biggest news story in the world today is the war in Syria, VT has a full-time news bureau in Damascus and received an award this week from the Russian Reconciliation Commission; in fact, we have more foreign bureaus, staffed with exclusive correspondents, most often academics or military officers, than the BBC has.

 

  • Most Americans don’t know the BBC – one thing we thank Trump for is making the world aware of Fake News. Even by Fake News standards. the BBC is state-funded saccharin drivel from a TV network barely competent to deal with such controversial subjects as animal husbandry and the making of cheese.

 

  • For the past 15 years that the current wars have been going on, the BBC has been consistent in one way only – they have never been right. Long gone are the days of Martin Bell braving the world’s warzones in his white linen suit, reporting actual events.

There is no analysis available that is not deception – the truth is treated like a dangerous poison. News reporting today comes in trite, vapid and worthless 400 word screeds, when we see a piece of length and some substance, our first thought is invariably ‘I wonder which intel agency funded this?’

Towards this end, in a morning editorial meeting, Jim, Ian and the infamous Uncle Gordy leave you this gift, something the BBC or no American network could or would ever publish… Jim, Ian and the notorious Uncle G]

The U.S. militant groups change their names so often that one might get suspicious they are trying to hide their true identities and allegiances, or might even be Americans themselves. Imagine that

 

An ISIS analog has entered the Syrian stage with all the flair and glory of a Hollywood spectacular; the U.S. has decided to push forward a full-scale ground offensive in Syria. Securing this new offensive against Damascus is one of the real purposes for Donald Trump’s trip to Saudi Arabia and Jared Kushner’s 100 billion dollar deal with the Saudis as well.

General Mattis

 

This combination of Trump’s equivalent of ‘narco-diplomacy’ while Kushner rakes the cash into the family coffers, has been greatly beneficial to both Saudi financiers and U.S. arms suppliers such as Raytheon and Lockheed, while funneling exorbitant back-payments into the Trump family’s Cayman Islands bank accounts.

Much of this was laid out by Mattis who bought off Abadi in Baghdad and hopes to drag British, French and German ground forces unto what the U.S. is calling a ‘deconfliction zone’. Once the European elections are out of the way and NATO has been leveraged, the case against Assad is going to take on new drama.

We saw the phony gas attack – America blocked an investigation, failed to produce even a scrap of evidence, while Trump went cap in hand to Putin, promising to never do it again; then only a few days later, the U.S. fabricated a story about Syria’s Auschwitz, imaginary death camps, incinerators, mass graves and zombie Sonderkommandos, which the Syrian U.N. Ambassador characterised as Hollywood clap-trap.

Behind it all is the hand of Israel – the fabricated attacks and what we are not seeing – and this is a very important part, of how Israel controls the White House, Pentagon and particularly members of the U.S. Congress charged with military oversight.

SIGINT

America spends up to 100 billion dollars a year of signals intelligence. The top 16 agencies in the U.S. are entirely dependent on signals intelligence. America’s satellite intelligence is useless without backup from signals intelligence and despite efforts to reform during Michael Flynn’s failed tenure at DIA, America has no HUMINT (Human Intelligence) sources left anywhere in the world.

Not only do they simply not exist, America doesn’t train any of it’s services in agent recruiting, handling or, and this has to be frightening – vetting information at all. In fact, the U.S. now considers Facebook posts and blogs to be human intelligence. They look to Twitter and Youtube and

During the Bush administration the White House hired the most disreputable sources to produce sexed-up dossiers on Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan – fake everything. The two we are most familiar with are SITE intelligence, which is Rita Katz.

According to our sources claims she gets her information from a guy in a Brooklyn delicatessen; the other is MEMRI.org, which is failed conspiracy blogger Steve Emerson, with a bushel of White House cash, Emerson went to Oman in 2002 and contracted with local media to produce fiction about Iraq and Saddam.

This was called the Middle East Intelligence Project. One of his editors contacted us and said ‘Gordon, I’m a good Muslim, but this guy is asking us to lie’; Duff replied ‘how much are they paying you?’ Farouq answered ‘30,000 dollars’ to which Duff replied ‘take the money, they have decided on their war anyway’.

Behind this were dozens more organisations, run from the Brooking Institution, Heritage Foundation, Washington Institute and Jamestown foundation, all fronts for Israeli Intelligence.

Rita Katz

 

Our real issue is Signals Intelligence and the traffic created for the United States. In 2014, we investigated Israel’s role in the downing of MH17 – the fake news story of a Russian missile shoot down reeked of implausibility and physical impossibility, but key SIGINT capabilities made this act of terror possible and the fingerprints of Tel-Aviv were there from day one.

Before the phony missile story drowned out the truth, even in the utterly infiltrated Russian press, the world new that air traffic controllers in Kiev had insanely sent MH17 over a combat zone, with two Ukrainian jet fighters on its tail.

It was no surprise to anyone when the plane was downed or how it was done, however within 48 hours the world’s media was awash with tales of the ‘limitations’ of the SU-25’s chasing ill-fated MH17 ‘they can’ fly that high’, ‘they don’t carry the right missiles’, ‘they don’t have any guns’.

It was U.S. Army Special Forces Forward Air Controller Gene ‘Chip’ Tatum that broke the story, you see, Israel has a black box that it installed on Ukrainian planes – it receives radar signals, alters them and ghosts them back; thus, a fast, high-flying pursuit plane like an Su-27 could be made to look like a flying school bus – not only is the capability there, but based on analysis of news reports and the deceptions used, not only were ‘spoofed’

We are absolutely certain that this was done; additionally, within hours of the downing of the plane, we received reports from a Canadian air traffic watchgroup that told us a flight had left an airport in Azerbaijan, vectoring in on what we believe is the intercept site of the Ukrainian Su-27 downing of MH17. The airport that flight left from we know is a covert base for Israeli F-15E bombers, placed there in 2010 as a threat against Iran.

In 2012, two Azeri army defectors to Iran confirmed this information; we also know that the powerful radar on the F-15E, combined with the Raphael avionics allows this plane to be used as an AWAC platform. The flight vector of this Israeli plane when added to those of the two ‘spoofed’ Ukrainian jets is what we would call a ‘package’ for what turned out to be an act of mass assassination.

This is one instance of a false-flag intelligence operation that uses Israeli SIGINT. On the 2nd of May, 2017, an Israeli intelligence team, having placed covert radio repeaters disguised as rocks, paddled out to an awaiting Dolphin submarine off the Syrian coast.

Two hours later, the submarine was lying on the bottom of the Mediterranean, its hull split open, its crew, including two commando teams, 84 men in all, lie dead, victims of a Russian-made anti-submarine torpedo from, according to Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), a naval patrol craft.

The purpose for this deeply paralleled MH17, MH17 was to blame Russia for shooting down an airliner; whereas here, Israeli SIGINT spoofing produced phony Syrian Arab Army radio traffic acknowledging the use of Sarin gas against civilians.

With the U.S. totally dependent on SIGINT and receiving its confirmation from corrupt organisations, un-vetted, no security clearances and highly agenda-driven – one and a half decades of American intelligence failures should now be much easier to understand. The newest incarnation of phony intelligence is the theatrical troop, sometimes paid locals, sometimes the dead children are pretending, sometimes the film company, when it can get away with it, and it needs that kinds of dramatic film effect, finds it more convenient to murder the child rather than pay for a sedative.

Time and time again we have caught the Syrian White Helmets, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SHRO) working with film groups from Al-Jazeera and the Reuters news agency, along with Turkish TV and aided by ISIS, Al-Qaeda and the MIT (Turkey’s intelligence agency), staging false terror attacks.

It is normal for an enemy subjected to air attack to place valuable assets in schools, churches, mosques and hospitals – using local residents as human shields; what is now being done however, is the result of changes on the battlefield.

You see, those assets are no longer worth protecting, the war in Syria is lost – why protect a small arms depot or communications centre when your mercenary jihadists are fleeing for their lives, tossing aside their weapons and shaving their beards, when the real war can be won with sanctions and American retaliatory strikes. The lesson is simple: just blow up the school yourself, film the dead children, put on a white helmet, grab a dead child, run back and forth in front of the camera until they got the shot just right. The BBC will carry it and the photo will be displayed in front of the U.N. Security Council by the U.S. ambassador. With luck, Ivanka Trump will personally supervise the attack for you.

This is the changing face of the war on Syria; staged terrorism, stories of mass graves, executions, torture, all sounding strangely familiar, like things we have heard before; Israel’s infamous ‘victimisation narrative’ in action yet again….

For the U.S., in order to support White House policy increasingly dominated, particularly under the Trump administration, by foreign intelligence agencies and even organised crime, as alleged by many, top intelligence positions are going to people with less and less experience – even alleged Israel hater Obama made these blunders, although Obama did move Chuck Hagel into defence and Martin Dempsey into the Joint Chiefs, thus cleaning out the Pentagon, albeit temporarily and obliterating the armageddon death cult that had taken control of America’s nuclear command, no, we are not kidding one bit about this.

Compounding this problem was the move against America’s service academies – West Point, Annapolis and the Air Force Academy, which took place in the late 80s under Bush 41. Pentecostal and dominionist cultists took total control of these factories for young military leaders while newly selected officer candidates were channeled through a selection process requiring ‘moral flexibility’, limited intelligence and a cocktail of personality – they wanted George Custers, not George Pattons.

Those that slipped through the cracks – the next generation of Omar Bradleys, were harrassed and abused; at one point in 2009, 159 cadets at the Air Force Academy contacted VT and the American Religious Freedom Foundation complaining of a religious ‘Inquisition’. As the service academies were more and more dominated by extremist Evangelical theology, their academic programmes faltered, but they did have a massive rise in another area – reported sexual assaults were up 60%, but the story behind this indicates the number was more likely 300% as overt intimidation.

This gave us the military that former Deputy Secretary of Defence Paul Wolfowitz, co-architect of the Israeli intelligence offensive against the U.S., their ‘inside man’, what he needed for his global War on Terror. This was an American army that now worked inter-operably with mercenaries, terrorists and thugs; an army that would openly not just protect the world’s largest narcotics production facilities but build that capability itself.

American military bases around the world became centres for mandatory prayer – bibles were carried more often than weapons and a special kind of blindness took root as well. Reported sexual assaults against both men and women serving in America’s military did increase 300%, unreported may well have gone up 1000%. American bases around the world began transiting victims of America’s rendition programmes – tens of thousands or more that almost invariably turned out to be innocent or mistakes – arrest anybody named Mohammed.

With upto 5 trillion dollars spent on the War On Terror, America was booted out of Iraq and a pro-Iranian government was elected while in Afghanistan the narcotics continued to flow in every greater volumes while the government in Kabul governs only in Kabul and only during daylight hours.

The failures of course are failures of policy, the ‘dull knife’ military lead by the dull minds from the service academies, following policies from the ‘Washington Swamp’ to use Trump’s descriptive term – the real horsepower behind this is two-fold: overtly, many blame the ‘Fake News’ press, and there is good reason, as we stated earlier, the FBI and CIA are notoriously addicted to software programmes that scan conspiracy blogs and Facebook for intelligence. The real disaster this represents cannot be overstated, but behind this is that smug world of top Secret intelligence only the chosen few get to see – the gilded gems that now hit Donald Trump’s and perhaps even Vladimir Putin’s desks. We suggest that if they do hit Putin’s desk they usually shortly after roll into the trash can.

What are we talking about? There is a beautiful simplicity to SIGINT – it is almost never real, not since the Zimmermann Telegram of 1917 – here’s one for you and no, this isn’t a joke: Israelis are notorious for taking a simple mobile phone and making this call: ‘hi, it’s just us terrorists here, making our suicide vests and we are just checking in to see how the family is doing’; they then take their 30 dollar phone, toss it over a wall and wait for an American drone to come by and blow the living daylights out of some poor, innocent fool and his family.

A typical scenario in such cases involves the hapless victims having failed to pay a commission on a diamond trade and no, we aren’t kidding, not one bit. Did CIA Director Pompeo know this? Quite truthfully, he doesn’t know anything that is why he is there. How about General Mattis – does he know? We have no way of telling, what we can tell is that he is now, and always had been, oblivious to simple issues of right or wrong, legal or illegal, even of good and evil.

We learned this lesson in Vietnam – what lesson is that? You don’t need to fight an enemy to win a war. In 1968, Richard Nixon announced he was going to pull American troops out of Vietnam if he was elected president and turn the war over to what we now know was a non-existent South Vietnamese Army. Let me explain. This is going to really hurt and what should hurt most about this is this one simple truth has never been heard before and yet it is so frigging obvious.

You see, the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army spent 70% of their military capability trying to hold and control regions of South Vietnam – they were fighting a political war, largely a war of defence, holding most of the land and most of the population while the U.S. fought a war of attack and mobility; Nixon changed all that.

With the announced U.S. pullout, the VC and NVA no longer had to hold anything – they only had to keep the Americans shuffling towards the door, which freed up 70% of their forces. Since they no longer had to hold land or seize territory here is what Nixon and Kissinger really did: Vietnam transitioned from a Civil War to a war where 540,000 Americans suddenly had targets on their back; you see, most of the casualties from the Vietnam War are from 1969 and 1970, not from the years before. The only goal of the NVA and VC became to kill as many Americans as possible; no American force needed to be defeated in battle, no area needed to be protected; it was just slaughter.

This is what made taking over the service academies so easy – a military that couldn’t get rid of its combat vets quick enough; a military deeply steeped in corruption and a war exclusively fought with small units and NCOs; there were lessons from the Vietnam War – it was the death knell of America’s officer corps. Vietnam was the type of jungle fighting the Marines saw in WW2, while sometimes only a few miles away, commanders basked poolside and whiled away evening in nightclubs while units commanded by sergeants and even PFCs engaged in hand-to-hand combat; this is the real shame of Vietnam, the real story of Vietnam and the roots of the level of corruption that rules America’s military.

This is the American military that lost all operational capability; a military that shed itself entirely of combat veterans at the end of the war, with the rare officer like Col. David Hackworth, co-founder of VT, fired for saying what you are reading here now.

In 1991 the U.S. sent its last war fighting command – 3rd Army, to the Middle East; VT’s Jim Hanke was chief operations officer. From that time onward, blame Clinton, blame Clinton, blame anyone, or maybe there was nothing wrong at all – there was no war fighting capability in the U.S. Army. You see, back at the time of Vietnam, service in the National Guard or Reserve made the likelihood of possibility of service in combat an improbability – you dodged the draft by joining the reserves.

The War On Terror changed that. Analogies between 9/11 and Pearl Harbour that were made almost immediately began to draw suspicion onto the perpetrators of that event. America went to war using National Guard and reservists – weekend, part-time soldiers – because as Rumsfeld correctly pointed out, ‘they are cheaper’.

The professional army that in Vietnam was paid as low as 60 dollars a month now paid a PFC in Iraq 6,000 dollars a month – not ten times more, 100 times more!

For every overpaid civilian, whose daily food and laundry maintenance costs, contracted to Halliburton and other political insider groups, and this is a daily personal cost, ran as high as 3,000 dollars. Drinking water at 300 dollars a gallon – there were two private contractors paid twice as much, or more.

No-one in the U.S. Army digs a latrine or peels a potato anymore, what was once done by two 60 dollar a month privates is now farmed out to a contracting firm that is paid 6000 dollars and two barefoot Ethiopians do the dirty work and they are paid 6 dollars a month – with that kind of math is it easy to understand why wars are never going to end?

In Vietnam, officers dodged combat, faked medal citations for each other and stole anything that wasn’t tied down. However, by today’s standards, this is nothing; what kind of officer guards a convoy of opium paste on it’s way to a heroin processing plant in Helmand Province? Who was the Air Force general in command of Bagram AFB when Dr. Aafiasaddiqui was raped and beaten by FBI, DHS and Navy SEALs? Can anyone forget Abu Ghraib?  The U.S. facilities in Libya were 50 times larger, the one in Poland one hundred times larger; all under the supervision of an American Officer Corps built on the stumbling wastrels of Vietnam and instilled with the Love of Jesus and more than a little bit of buggery.

This is the environment that permanent corrupt war, engineered, and we are now returning to it, by SIGINT, by fake Israeli SIGINT, has gifted us. The largest budget line item in Israel is electronic intelligence, far beyond their nuclear programmes and far more secretive than anything Trump could ever give Putin.

We recently touched on the role of Movements.org and Google’s Jigsaw; it doesn’t take long to discern that almost all those involved are tied directly to Israeli intelligence and Israeli fake intelligence projects. What we have is an end to end solution – we start a war based on fake radio intercepts, backed up by staged atrocity videos and stoked by controlled media. It is funded by a bribed and controlled Congress and fought by an officer Corps dedicated to ‘Endtimes Prophecy’ and bringing about the biblical Armageddon.

Adding depth to this are hundreds of robot blogger websites spewing a flood of conspiracies – enough to drown any investigative reporting efforts in a sea of disinfo and room after room of trolls creating a fake narrative on comment boards, Facebook and Wikipedia, poisoning any dialogue on a massive global scale, bad manners on an industrial scale.

Behind all of this we have phony SIGINT, and endless flow of utterly fake and we mean childishly fake intercepts creating a comprehensively fleshed out world of falsehood. Washington runs on this fake intelligence, there are maps in the Pentagon filled with enemy bases that never existed; due to the money spent, the profits made on SIGINT, control of Americas foreign policy and Americas trillion dollar military budget is entirely subject to fake intercepts manufactured by Israel’s highly advanced five billion dollar a year electronic deception apparatus, to add insult to injury, much of it paid by the US taxpayers.

It would be nice if we could stop here, but we simply cannot; working alongside all of what we just described to you are fake terror cells, fake assassins, fake mass murderers and in some cases, fake victims as well. When we saw a Paris police officer shot point blank with fake bullets or when, time and time again, the same dead and wounded are seen in incident after incident, we move from to suspicion to revelation to nausea.

Thus, as we watch ISIS lose the war, we begin to ask ourselves – why was there a war and we remember the 300 dollar a gallon Halliburton Corp. drinking water, direct and unaltered from the Euphrates River. We look at the ISIS Jihadists and his endless supply of Raytheon-built TOW missiles or maybe we look to Africa to Boko Haram and a barefoot tribesman chatting all day on a 2,000 dollar satellite phone with someone picking up the 35 dollar a minute fees.

It’s always the unasked question, never to be asked by a corrupt officer corps or a fake Congress or a fake President who has pointed out repeatedly, that we are dealing with a fake NATO as well. SIGINT is fake, HUMINT is gleaned from the internet and fake, our news videos are fake, nearly as fake as Ivanka Trump…

It is obvious what we have created, in 1935 General Smedley Butler warned us that war is a racket, even Paul Wolfowitz thought he was sending troops to steal oil – it took him two years to realise it was far easier to hold a gun to the head of the American people, build a police state in the United States and to duplicate Orwell’s world from the novel 1984.

The perpetual war scenario laid out in 1984 is now reality, Orwell really was trying to warn us of things to come, too bad no-one in a position of power seems to have paid him any heed.
