56 Years Ago Today, Eisenhower Warned Americans Of “The Unwarranted Influence” Of The Deep State

  • 56 Years Ago Today, Eisenhower Warned Americans Of “The Unwarranted Influence” Of The Deep State 
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com, 17 Jan 2017
    In his farewell address to the nation 56 years ago, President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned the American people for the first time to keep a careful eye on what he called the “military-industrial complex” that had developed in the post-World War II years. Fiscally conservative Eisenhower had been concerned about the growing size and cost of the American defense establishment since he became president in 1953, and as History.com notes, in his last presidential address to the American people, he expressed those concerns in terms that shocked many of his listeners.

    Eisenhower began by describing the changing nature of the American defense establishment since World War II. No longer could the U.S. afford the “emergency improvisation” that characterized its preparations for war against Germany and Japan. Instead, the United States was “compelled to create a permanent armaments industry” and a huge military force. He admitted that the Cold War made clear the “imperative need for this development,” but he was gravely concerned about “the acquisition of unwarranted influence…by the military-industrial complex.” In particular, he asked the American people to guard against the “danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.”

    Eisenhower’s blunt language stunned some of his supporters.
    They believed that the man who led the country to victory in Europe in World War II and guided the nation through some of the darkest moments of the Cold War was too negative toward the military-industrial complex that was the backbone of America’s defense. For most listeners, however, it seemed clear that Eisenhower was merely stating the obvious. World War II and the ensuing Cold War resulted in the development of a large and powerful defense establishment.
    Necessary though that development might be, Eisenhower warned, this new military-industrial complex could weaken or destroy the very institutions and principles it was designed to protect.

Pilger: Trump Faces American ‘War-Making Machine’ If He Tries to Strike Deal with Russia — “The US’ Biggest Business is War”!

  • Trump Faces American ‘War-Making Machine’ If He Tries to Strike Deal with Russia – Pilger
    by https://www.rt.com/
    President-elect Donald Trump may want to make a deal with Russia, award-winning journalist John Pilger told RT, adding that the “US intelligence and national security monolith is pointed towards war.”

    “It seems that he [Donald Trump] wants to make a deal with Russia, it makes sense from everyone’s point of view,” Pilger told RT’s Rory Suchet during a lengthy interview. “There is a great pressure on him not to do it”.

    The US president now has “enormous military power,” noted Pilger. Trump is currently under pressure from fellow Republicans calling for tougher sanctions against Russia and those standing for softening rhetoric towards Moscow.

    “The US’ biggest business is war. Lockheed Martin and all other major armament companies have a great halt on the US administration, on the US Congress. The so-called intelligence community and national security monolith is pointed towards war.”

    The ultimate ambition of ‘Washington Hawks’ is regime change in Russia – “to dismember the Russian Federation,” according to the veteran journalist. He reminded about interventions US conducted since the end of the WWII against numerous nations.

    “If Trump is going to drawback from that, that’s very good news. The US usually only attack defenseless countries. They rarely attack countries that can stand up for themselves.”

    That’s why “this reckless provocation” on the western borders with Russia and in the Asia Pacific against China is “slightly unusual,” as it’s taking things up to “another level of risks and provocation,” he added.

    Pilger was referring to the NATO deployment in Eastern Europe. Earlier in January, some 2,800 pieces of military hardware and 4,000 troops arrived at the German port of Bremerhaven to be transferred to various NATO bases.

Very Powerful People in the U.S. Government Want War – This is Their Sales Pitch

obama_ready_to_start_ww3_to_neutralize_trump

  • Very Powerful People in the U.S. Government Want War – This is Their Sales Pitch
    by Michael Krieger, https://libertyblitzkrieg.com/
    The rising hysteria about Russia is best understood as fulfilling two needs for Official Washington: the Military Industrial Complex’s transitioning from the “war on terror” to a more lucrative “new cold war” – and blunting the threat that a President Trump poses to the neoconservative/liberal-interventionist foreign-policy establishment.

    By hyping the Russian “threat,” the neocons and their liberal-hawk sidekicks, who include much of the mainstream U.S. news media, can guarantee bigger military budgets from Congress. The hype also sets in motion a blocking maneuver to impinge on any significant change in direction for U.S. foreign policy under Trump.
    – From the post: Who Benefits from War with Russia?

    The following will probably be one of the most important articles I’ve ever written. After spending some time watching the recently concluded intelligence briefing to the U.S. Senate, I’ve determined it to be one of the most disturbing and ominous things I can remember. I have several takeaways from what I saw, and none of them are good.


    Right at this very moment, we are being sold on this war by the media, politicians, intelligence agencies, as well as various other vested interests who benefit from imperial dominance abroad (unlike the vast majority of us who are severely harmed by it). When you understand that this is simply a huge sales pitch to herd the American public like sheep into a conflict that is not in their best interests, then everything you see and hear around you starts to make sense.

    Just in case you doubt my theory that certain people have already decided they want this war, watch the following diatribe by neocon chickenhawk Lindsey “I never saw a war I didn’t like” Graham.

US to Hand Out Arms Like Christmas Cookies to Preserve Terrorist Assets in Syria’ – Ex US Diplomat

  • Published on Dec 10, 2016
    President Obama’s waiver of restrictions on supplying arms to militant groups in Syria looks like a desperate attempt to compensate for the loss of Aleppo and preserve terrorist assets elsewhere, former US diplomat Jim Jatras told RT.

“For years we have been supplying anti-tank missiles and all sorts of weapons to the terrorists, to Al Nusra, sometimes to ISIS …”

‘Greed & Privilege’: Pentagon Reportedly Buried Evidence of $125bn Waste

  • Published on Dec 7, 2016
    The Pentagon had the opportunity to save $125 billion by streamlining its bureaucracy, but instead chose to bury the study in order to avoid losing funding from Congress. The Washington Post revealed that the country’s Department of Defence used almost a quarter of its budget on business and non-military operations.
  • Where did the multi-trillions of dollars disappear to? Corruption is the easy answer. The answer that is closer to the truth is: the build up for the past 3-4 decades of secret Deep Underground Military Bases (DUMBs), secret military Beyond Black projects … in preparation for the war against Jesus Christ, the Blessed Son of God, on His 2nd Coming.

WikiLeaks: U.S. Government Armed And Funded Yemeni Forces

obama_more_of_the_same_Warmonger

  • WikiLeaks: U.S. Government Armed And Funded Yemeni Forces
    by Alicia Powe, http://www.westernjournalism.com/
    … accused of committing war crimes in the Yemeni conflict …
    Wikileaks released a batch of files Friday alleging the United States armed, trained and financed Yemeni forces in the buildup to the country’s current civil war.

    The 500 internal leaked documents, allegedly hacked from the United States embassy in Sana’a, Yemen, prove the Yemeni government received aircraft, patrol boats, weapons, on-site U.S. training and assistance teams, the Yemeni procurement biometric systems, two English-language labs and various other military hardware from the U.S.

    The weapons supply to the Yemeni government is estimated to have cost $147 million, $99 million of which was allocated for a “counterterrorism aviation support;” $41 million  or the Yemeni Navy for “operations support and capacity building;” and an additional $7 million earmarked for a “counterterrorism direct action force support” package.

    “The United States government has provided most of the bombs and is deeply involved in the conduct of the war itself,” WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said of the rarely reported conflict in a statement on the organization’s website.

    Dubbed the “Yemen Files,” the leak consisted of 200 emails and 300 PDFs which span from 2009-2015, covering both the tenures of Hillary Clinton and John Kerry as Secretary of State.

North Korea Holds Drill, Simulates Attacks on South Korea

  • Published on Dec 1, 2016
    North Korea has carried out a large scale artillery drill in which it simulated targeted attacks on South Korean positions. The drill personally supervised by north’s leader Kim Jong-Un involved multiple batteries of frontline heavy artillery units and targeted five border islands, as well as positions inside the rival neighboring country. The military exercise came hours after the UN Security Council slapped new sanctions on Pyongyang over its nuclear and missile activities on Thursday. Meanwhile, South Korea and Japan have unveiled their own new sanctions against North Korea. Tensions between the two Koreas have been simmering since Pyongyang tested different types of nuclear capable missiles at an unprecedented rate. North Korea says it will not stop its nuclear program until the US ends its hostile policy toward the country.
  • North Korea is controlled opposition under the thumb of the CIA, US-Pentagram. It is used as a psyop to keep South Korea and Japan in check, safely in the arms of the western hegemony. Who benefits from all the actions of North Korea? The US-Pentagram. Not China and not Russia. All warfare is based on deception – Sun Tzu, The Art of War. The western Illuminati is still hell bent on starting their Satanic WW3. They are running out of time.

Obama Creates New Al-Qaeda Out Of Thin Air To Justify His Somalia War

WhiteHouse-Welcome_to_Bullshit_Central_residence_of_Obama_and_Bush_bin_Laden

  • Obama Creates New Al-Qaeda Out Of Thin Air To Justify His Somalia War
    by Michael Krieger, https://libertyblitzkrieg.com/ 
    An article published in The New York Times this past Sunday perfectly demonstrates how out of control and unconstitutional America’s foreign policy has become. It highlights the latest war being perpetrated by the Obama administration, which is expanding with very little scrutiny from the press or the government branch supposedly in charge of waging war, the U.S. Congress.

    The latest growing battlefield is in Somalia, and it threatens to spiral out of control just like so many other undeclared war zones before it. From the NY Times:

    WASHINGTON — The escalating American military engagement in Somalia has led the Obama administration to expand the legal scope of the war against Al Qaeda, a move that will strengthen President-elect Donald J. Trump’s authority to combat thousands of Islamist fighters in the chaotic Horn of Africa nation.

    Is it “a move that will strengthen President-elect Donald J. Trump’s authority to combat thousands,” or is it a move that will allow Trump to also engage in endless, unconstitutional war?

    The administration has decided to deem the Shabab, the Islamist militant group in Somalia, to be part of the armed conflict that Congress authorized against the perpetrators of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, according to senior American officials.
    The move is intended to shore up the legal basis for an intensifying campaign of airstrikes and other counterterrorism operations, carried out largely in support of African Union and Somali government forces.

    The executive branch’s stretching of the 2001 war authorization against the original Al Qaeda to cover other Islamist groups in countries far from Afghanistan — even ones, like the Shabab, that did not exist at the time — has prompted recurring objections from some legal and foreign policy experts.

    Would you look at that. Shabab didn’t even exists on 9/11, yet Obama is using 9/11 authority against al-Qaeda to wage war without Congressional approval. He is literally creating new al-Qaeda out of thin air.

BBC Caught Fabricating News to Start a War

Adolf_Hitler-The-Big-Lie

  • BBC Caught Fabricating News to Start a War 
    by Martin Armstrong, https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/
    The press has been routinely creating fake news reports to start a war. This is a serious issue for the press is conspiring against the people to create war, sell climate change, and rig elections. This is by no means something new. They taught me in high school history class about how the press started the Spanish-American War by reporting that the Spanish attacked a US ship, which never happened.

    We have fallen into a cycle of yellow journalism that Pulitzer began. Pulitzer created the Spanish-American War by making up shit to sell newspapers. The famous Pulitzer Prize given by Columbia University is named after the father of yellow journalism – go figure! This is why the press and the Republican elite supported Hillary. They need to rig the game.

    The most fascinating aspect of war has been the government’s consistent lies to the American people to move the nation to war with every single event. This has won them the ability to wage every single war up until Obama’s attempt to invade Syria. It did not fly. This was really the beginning of the collapse in public confidence for the peak in government on our 224-Year Cycle of Political Change was 2013 — the second swearing in of Obama.

    The sinking of the Lusitania is very disturbing. The U.S. was smuggling arms to Europe on passenger ships, and putting civilian lives in harm’s way for political reasons. The Germans even took an advertisement in the NY newspapers warning civilians DO NOT TRAVEL on the Lusitania. When they sank that ship, the U.S. turned and said how cruel the Germans were to attack a passenger ship.

    Then there was the Operation Northwoodwhich was a proposal of the Department of Defense. The Joint Chiefs of Staff would have employed CIA operatives to commit acts of terrorism against American civilians. They would then blame the Cuban government to justify a war against Cuba. The proposals were rejected by the Kennedy administration and have long been part of the reason people support the theory that the CIA is responsible for the killing of Kennedy.

The Entire Mainstream Warmongering Media is Fake

Ministry_of_Propaganda_MSM

Jim_Morrison_Whoever_Controls_MSM_Controls_the_Mind

  • The Entire Mainstream Warmongering Media is Fake  
    by Jay Dyer, 21st Century Wire
    If the Trump phenomena showed anything, it showed the consensus reality the mainstream media attempted to create concerning Hillary’s certain victory, as well as the consensus reality erected for decades, is not omnipotent.

    In fact, the earliest days of mass print media were erected on a famous fraud known as the “Great Moon Hoax” of 1835 – something researcher Chris Kendall has long called attention to – wherein the “educated,” “elite” widely accepted the mainstream publications’ claim bat people inhabited the lunar surface.

    In our day, a similar hoax still reigns, as mainstream media is literally as credible as Weekly World News’ Bat Boy story.

    Anyone who has seen Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane knows the director became a target of one of the most powerful media moguls of all time – William Randolph Hearst (who bought up all the major papers of his day). Not many years later, Skull and Bonesman “Baal,” aka, Henry Luce of Time Magazine fame and his CIA operative wife Claire Boothe would cooperate in promoting the “anti-establishment” hallucinogenic trend, along with the dozens of academic and government institutions associated with MK ULTRA.

    What was supposedly anti-establishment was in fact promoted by the mass media for the explicit purposes of cultural revolution and social engineering, as Dave McGowan has detailed in his Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon.

    The major television news companies, and CBS in particular, have their origins in operatives of the OSS, like William Paley and David Sarnoff, while the same goes for print media, as the CIA’s tentacles extended to major publications, including Katherine Graham’s Washington Post, the Bushes and the Moonies with the Washington Times, as well as the Mockingbird New York Times. Investigations into the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird would reveal extensive media control through some 400 top editors and journalists, and even today known establishment and CIA operatives such as Anderson Cooper (CNN-CBS) and Robert Baer (CNN) regularly “report the facts” to millions of Americans.

    Journalist Robert Parry notes as a further example the mainstream, establishment press covering up numerous scandals for the Reagan Administration, including Nicaraguan drug trafficking and the infamous Iran-Contra:

    “At least since the 1980s, The New York Times has misreported or glossed over many international issues that put the United States and its allies in a negative light.

    For instance, the Times not only missed the Nicaraguan Contra cocaine scandal, but actively covered up the Reagan administration’s role in the wrongdoing through the 1980s and much of the 1990s.
