F. William Engdahl, ‘The Lost Hegemon’

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | July 04, 2017

F. William Engdahl

Over the years, I have marveled at F. William Engdahl’s brilliant writings and interviews, so it is with great pleasure I present a snippet from the latest book I purchased.

“As I sit down to write these words, Western Europe is being overwhelmed with a cultural and social challenge unprecedented in her history. A brutal four-year long war in Syria has spread around the world. An organization calling itself ISIS or the Islamic State erupted violently onto the world stage in 2014 to claim the right to create what they termed The Global Caliphate. The conditions of war and terror in Syria had created more than two million refugees on the move for safety, more than one million of them coming to Europe seeking asylum during the final months of 2015 alone.

On September 30, 2015 the Russian Federation accepted a call from Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to help defeat ISIS in Syria. That call came despite bombing from the United States, allegedly against ISIS strongholds, for more than one year, a bombing that appeared only to have expanded the control of ISIS.

The direct Russian involvement in military action far from her shores signaled a new era in global politics following the collapse of the Soviet Union a quarter century before. The world seemed to be ineluctably moving towards a new world war, this one with religion at its core. Ultimately, Islamic terror was being instrumentalized as a weapon of war, one being aimed to defeat Russia, China and pre-empt emergence of a rival to the sole hegemony of the United States.

On November 13, 2015 grotesque suicide bomber attacks across Paris signaled a new phase in the attack on civilization. Yet few asked who or what was actually behind the IS and its reign of terror. To answer that it would be necessary to go back to the early post-World War II period and the birth of a new American intelligence agency.

For more than six decades, a faction in the US intelligence community used, and even trained, various Islamic political groups for their goal to extend an American hegemony in the world. The relationship between the CIA and certain specific groups of political Islamists began in the 1950s in postwar Munich and reached a new dimension in the 1980s, when the CIA, together with Saudi Arabian intelligence, brought a wealthy Saudi Islamist named Osama bin Laden to Pakistan to recruit Islamic Jihadists for a terrorist war against the Soviet Red Army in Afghanistan.

The success of the CIA’s Operation Cyclone, to arm and train Afghani and other Mujahideen Islamic combatants, led Washington to deploy the same tactic after the collapse of the Warsaw Pact and the Soviet Union in the early 1990s. Veterans of the Afghan Mujahideen war, many of them Saudi and other Arab nationals recruited by bin Laden’s organization, Al Qaeda, were brought on CIA private air transports into Azerbaijan, where British and US oil companies had their eye on the petroleum riches of the Caspian Sea. The CIA brought them into Yugoslavia to fan the flames of war there, from Bosnia-Herzegovina to Kosovo. They smuggled them into Chechnya and Dagestan to sabotage Russian oil pipeline routes.

As evident success grew with each attempt, some in Washington became heady with their strategy. They were convinced they had discovered the ideal instrument for making terror anywhere in the world to advance their agenda of global hegemony now that the Soviet Union had collapsed, while blaming it on crazed “stirred up Muslims,” as Zbigniew Brzezinski once termed them.

The CIA and Pentagon finally had their new “enemy image” to replace the old Soviet communism when they blamed the events of September 11, 2001 in New York and Washington on Osama bin Laden and his Al Qaeda network, whether true or not. Washington promptly declared a War on Terror and, under that banner, spread US military bases and its hegemony across the globe to places inconceivable just a decade before. Fear gripped an uncertain American population. They joined in the new war.”

Solving the Wrong Problems

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | July 02, 2017

I’ve been watching the news since at least five, but back then my only sources were CBS, NBC and ABC… but even as a child, it was curious to me that all three channels selected the same news and same viewpoint. Truth –it seemed– was nice and well-behaved. Different personalities, yes, but there was an obvious sameness that I could recognize but not explain. Later, we had PBS and NOVA which I loved and then there was CNN which seemed to break the monotony of the big three networks … and soon, there were hundreds of stations. Despite the explosion of stations and choices, little in-depth, satisfying news was available. There was no real choice.

As CNN’s newness grew stale, Fox News came to the rescue, again breaking the monotony of sameness. But Fox turned the news into entertainment soundbites and punished any like Andrew Napolitano who dared to question the walled garden of ‘well-established’ fact-claims. Again monotony and sameness until the Alt Media led by Mae Brussell, Alex Jones, Patrick Wood, James Perloff, James Corbett, Richard Grove and others emerged from obscurity to question the officially promulgated narrative of the big sameness.

And despite my love of news and current events, history in the public school system was a dull, boring monotony of sameness promulgating the same set of unexamined fact-claims echoed in the news media. Something was wrong, but I had no real proof, until I read the Reece Committee report of 1953 (United States House Select Committee to Investigate Tax-Exempt Foundations and Comparable Organizations), where I learned our history was contrived, controlled and basterdized by some of the most respected institutions in America: American Historical Association; Tax-Free / Exempt foundations like the Rockefeller, Carnegie, Guggenheim and Ford foundations. These folks had paid for the version of history we all willingly consumed; and no one was the wiser. After all, who would read these 1953 congressional reports and investigations into this blatant fraud?

I then read a true accounting of our major wars from James Perloff based on actual source documents and found that all our major wars (Spanish/American, WWI, WWII, Korea, and Vietnam) were based on lies: contrived and based on false information; and no one was the wiser.

But the frosting on top of this corrupt cake of obfuscation was Carroll Quigley’s ‘The Anglo-American Establishment’; which proves beyond any doubt, we are being controlled by lies and herded like livestock to be fleeced, rendered and used by those –who today– seek to control the free flow of information on the internet.

What our masters know: Information is power and without the truth, we will all be trying to solve the wrong problems and never be able to identify the real villains who control our worldview and therefore our destiny.

Solution: Stop relying on the paid authorities and learn to read and think again on our own. After all, it was Allen Dulles who assured his coconspirators all is well since “Americans don’t read.”

Mein Kampf “My Struggle”

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | Oct 03, 2016

“History is written by the victors.” ― Walter Benjamin

mein_kampf_dust_jacket

If you haven’t read Mein Kampf, you really don’t know what you are missing. When you overlay Mein Kampf on top of a real historical accounting of Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution, FDR, WWI & WWII (see Antony C. Sutton)… mind blown.

I love autobiographies.  My favorite is Benjamin Franklin’s.  Though it’s certain these authors only tell what they choose to disclose, these books provide a unique perspective and perhaps a deeper insight into what exactly makes the writer tick; up close and personal.  Unfortunately many of today’s autobiographers use ghostwriters extensively, so to me this seems less insightful and therefore less valuable.  I doubt if Benjamin had any help, but certainly Hitler did, yet Mein Kampf remains personal and approachable.

Now, I have no plans of becoming a Nazi or a Fascist anytime soon and I abhor any act of unprovoked murder, yet we cheat ourselves if we condemn a person of Hitler’s historical importance to obscurity and misunderstanding by refusing to read and understand just exactly what he had to say.  Though many criticize his writing style, I find it brilliant.  Many of us have a simplified version of history imprinted in our minds; taught by our compulsory state-run public school systems, viewed from the perspective of the victors; or perhaps we gained our history from the many references to Hitler in our current era via the entertainment industry.   This, I assure you, does not paint a complete picture, but rather a useful myth promulgated by our current power structure.  I would love to believe all these myths, but they are just not true.

From the Reece committee investigations of 1953, we know that our history has been re-written to please the powerful.  From Antony C. Sutton’s ‘Wall Street and the rise of Hitler’, we know that FDR, Wall Street and many powerful businessmen concealed financial interests and activities that would shock the average American.  We know that the Milner Group controlled –from behind– many of the public faces we are all familiar with during WWI and WWII:  we learn this from Carroll Quigley’s penetrating writing on ‘The Anglo-American Establishment’.  And we know from circumstantial evidence and memos presented by James Perloff that FDR had foreknowledge of Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, yet let it occur anyway.  And we know much, much more.

So with WWII, there is much hidden from the general public who have neither the time nor interest to dig deeper for the truth.

My point is not to drill down into the many controversies and hidden history surrounding WWII, but to provide a motivation for all those who haven’t read Hitler’s autobiography to consider giving Mein Kampf a try.  I do not think you will be disappointed.

To this end, I have provided the following three (3) excerpts; additional reading and resources at the bottom of this post ….

Destruction of the Family:

And so this man, who was formerly so hard-working, grows lax in his whole view of life and gradually becomes the instrument of those who use him only for their own base advantage. He has so often been unemployed through no fault of his own that one time more or less ceases to matter, even when the aim is no longer to fight for economic rights, but to destroy political, social, or cultural values in general. He may not be exactly enthusiastic about strikes, but at any rate he has become indifferent.

With open eyes I was able to follow this process in a thousand examples. The more I witnessed it, the greater grew my revulsion for the big city which first avidly sucked men in and then so cruelly crushed them. When they arrived, they belonged to their people; after remaining for a few years, they were lost to it.

I, too, had been tossed around by life in the metropolis- in my own skin I could feel the effects of this fate and taste them with my soul. One more thing I saw: the rapid change from work to unemployment and vice versa, plus the resultant fluctuation of income, end by destroying in many all feeling for thrift, or any understanding for a prudent ordering of their lives. It would seem that the body gradually becomes accustomed to living on the fat of the land in good times and going hungry in bad times. Indeed, hunger destroys any resolution for reasonable budgeting in better times to come by holding up to the eyes of its tormented victim an eternal mirage of good living and raising this dream to such a pitch of longing that a pathological desire puts an end to all restraint as soon as wages and earnings make it at all possible. The consequence is that once the man obtains work he irresponsibly forgets all ideas of order and discipline, and begins to live luxuriously for the pleasures of the moment. This upsets even the small weekly budget, as even here any intelligent apportionment is lacking; in the beginning it suffices for five days instead of seven, later only for three, finally scarcely for one day, and in the end it is drunk up in the very first night.

Often he has a wife and children at home. Sometimes they, too, are infected by this life, especially when the man is good to them on the whole and actually loves them in his own way. Then the weekly wage is used up by the whole family in two or three days; they eat and drink as long as the money holds out and the last days they go hungry. Then the wife drags herself out into the neighborhood, borrows a little, runs up little debts at the food store, and in this way strives to get through the hard last days of the week. At noon they all sit together before their meager and sometimes empty bowls, waiting for the next payday, speaking of it, making plans, and, in their hunger, dreaming of the happiness to come.

And so the little children, in their earliest beginnings, are made familiar with this misery.

It ends badly if the man goes his own way from the very beginning and the woman, for the children’s sake, opposes him. Then there is fighting and quarreling, and, as the man grows estranged from his wife, he becomes more intimate with alcohol. He is drunk every Saturday, and, with her instinct of self-preservation for herself and her children, the woman has to fight to get even a few pennies out of him; and, to make matters worse, this usually occurs on his way from the factory to the barroom. When at length he comes home on Sunday or even Monday night, drunk and brutal, but always parted from his last cent, such scenes often occur that God have mercy!

I have seen this in hundreds of instances. At first I was repelled or even outraged, but later I understood the whole tragedy of this misery and its deeper causes.

Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler
18 July 1925


Propaganda, the machine for educating the masses:

By far the greatest bulk of the political ‘education,’ which in this case one may rightly define with the word ‘propaganda,’ is the work of the press. It is the press above all else that carries out this ‘work of enlightenment,’ thus forming a sort of school for adults. This instruction, however, does not rest in the hand of the State, but partly in the claws of very inferior forces. As a very young man in Vienna, I had the very best opportunity of becoming really acquainted with the owners and spiritual producers of this machine for educating the masses. At the beginning I was astonished how short a time it took this most evil of all the great powers in the State to create a certain opinion, even if this involved complete falsification of the wishes or opinions in the minds of the public. In the course of a few days a ridiculous trifle was turned into an affair of State, whereas, at the same time, problems of vital importance were dropped into general oblivion, or rather were stolen from the minds and the memory of the masses.

So they succeeded, in the course of a few weeks, in conjuring up some names out of nothing and attaching incredible hopes to them on the part of the great public, in even giving them a popularity which the really important man may never attain during his whole lifetime; names which in addition, nobody had even heard of only a month before, whereas at the same time old and trustworthy representatives of public or political life, though in the bloom of health, simply died in the minds of their contemporaries, or they were showered with such wretched abuses that soon their names were in danger of becoming the symbol of villainy and rascality. It is necessary to study this infamous Jewish method with which they simultaneously and from all directions, as at a given magic word, pour bucketfuls of the basest calumnies and defamation over the clean garb of honest people, in order to appreciate the entire danger of these rascals of the press.

POLITICAL CONSIDERATIONS IN VIENNA 109
18 July 1925


How to read:

By ‘reading,’ to be sure, I mean perhaps something different than the average member of our so-called ‘intelligentsia.’

I know people who ‘read’ enormously, book for book, letter for letter, yet whom I would not describe as ‘well-read.’ True they possess a mass of ‘knowledge,’ but their brain is unable to organize and register the material they have taken in. They lack the art of sifting what is valuable for them in a book from that which is without value, of retaining the one forever, and, if possible, not even seeing the rest, but in any case not dragging it around with them as useless ballast.  For reading is no end in itself, but a means to an end. It should primarily help to fill the framework constituted by every man’s talents and abilities; in addition, it should provide the tools and building materials which the individual needs for his life’s work, regardless whether this consists in a primitive struggle for sustenance or the satisfaction of a high calling; secondly, it should transmit a general world view. In both cases, however, it is essential that the content of what one reads at any time should not be transmitted to the memory in the sequence of the book or books, but like the stone of a mosaic should fit into the general world picture in its proper place, and thus help to form this picture in the mind of the reader.  Otherwise there arises a confused muddle of memorized facts which not only are worthless, but also make their unto fortunate possessor conceited.  For such a reader now believes himself in all seriousness to be ‘educated,’ to understand something of life, to have knowledge; while in reality, with every new acquisition of this kind of ‘education,’ he is growing more and more removed from the world until, not infrequently, he ends up in a sanitarium or in parliament.

Never will such a mind succeed in culling from the confusion of his ‘ knowledge ‘ anything that suits the demands of the hour, for his intellectual ballast is not organized along the lines of life, but in the sequence of the books as he read them and as their content has piled up in his brain If Fate, in the requirements of his daily life, desired to remind him to make a correct application of what he had read, it would have to indicate title and page number, since the poor fool would otherwise never in all his life find the correct place. But since Fate does not do this, these bright boys in any critical situation come into the most terrible embarrassment, cast about convulsively for analogous cases, and with mortal certainty naturally find the wrong formulas.

If this were not true, it would be impossible for us to understand the political behavior of our learned and highly placed government heroes, unless we decided to assume outright villainy instead of pathological propensities.

On the other hand, a man who possesses the art of correct reading will, in studying any book, magazine, or pamphlet, instinctively and immediately perceive everything which in his opinion is worth permanently remembering, either because it is suited to his purpose or generally worth knowing. Once the knowledge he has achieved in this fashion is correctly coordinated within the somehow existing picture of this or that subject created by the imaginations it will function either as a corrective or a complement, thus enhancing either the correctness or the clarity of the picture. Then, if life suddenly sets some question before us for examination or answer, the memory, if this method of reading is observed, will immediately take the existing picture as a norm, and from it will derive all the individual items regarding these questions, assembled in the course of decades, submit them to the mind for examination and reconsideration, until the question is clarified or answered.

Only this kind of reading has meaning and purpose.

An orator, for example, who does not thus provide his intelligence with the necessary foundation will never be in a position cogently to defend his view in the face of opposition, though it may be a thousand times true or real. In every discussion his memory will treacherously leave him in the lurch; he will find neither grounds for reinforcing his own contentions nor any for confuting those of his adversary. If, as in the case of a speaker, it is only a question of making a fool of himself personally, it may not be so bad, but not so when Fate predestines such a know-it-all incompetent to be the leader of a state.

Since my earliest youth I have endeavored to read in the correct way, and in this endeavor I have been most happily supported by my memory and intelligence. Viewed in this light, my Vienna period was especially fertile and valuable. The experiences of daily life provided stimulation for a constantly renewed study of the most varied problems. Thus at last I was in a position to bolster up reality by theory and test theory by reality, and was preserved from being stifled by theory or growing banal through reality.

The Hitler Speech They Don’t Want You To Hear


Side note: US intelligence involvement in Nazi Ratlines … (part of Operation Paperclip)

If at first US intelligence officers had been mere observers of the Draganović ratline, this changed in the summer of 1947. A now declassified US Army intelligence report from 1950 sets out in detail the history of the people smuggling operation in the three years to follow. According to the report, from this point on US forces themselves had begun to use Draganović’s established network to evacuate its own “visitors”. As the report put it, these were “visitors who had been in the custody of the 430th CIC and completely processed in accordance with current directives and requirements, and whose continued residence in Austria constituted a security threat as well as a source of possible embarrassment to the Commanding General of USFA, since the Soviet Command had become aware that their presence in US Zone of Austria and in some instances had requested the return of these persons to Soviet custody”.

These were suspected war criminals from areas occupied by the Red Army which the US was obliged to hand over for trial to the Soviets. The US reputedly was reluctant to do so, partly due to a belief[citation needed] that fair trial could hardly be expected in the USSR (see Operation Keelhaul), and at the same time, their desire to make use of Nazi scientists and other resources.[citation needed] The deal with Draganović involved getting the visitors to Rome: “Dragonovich [sic] handled all phases of the operation after the defectees arrived in Rome, such as the procurement of IRO Italian and South American documents, visas, stamps, arrangements for disposition, land or sea, and notification of resettlement committees in foreign lands”.  United States intelligence used these methods in order to get important Nazi scientists and military strategists, to the extent they had not already been claimed by the Soviet Union, to their own centres of military science in the US. Many Nazi scientists were employed by the US, retrieved in Operation Paperclip.

Some of the Nazis and war criminals who escaped using ratlines include:

  • Adolf Eichmann, fled to Argentina in 1950, captured 1960, executed in Israel on 1 June 1962
  • Franz Stangl, fled to Brazil in 1951, arrested in 1967 and extradited to West Germany, died in 1971 of natural causes
  • Gustav Wagner, fled to Brazil in 1950, arrested 1978, committed suicide 1980
  • Erich Priebke, fled to Argentina in 1949, arrested 1994, eventually died in 2013
  • Klaus Barbie, fled to Bolivia with help from the United States, captured in 1983, died in prison in France on 23 September 1991
  • Eduard Roschmann, escaped to Argentina in 1948, fled to Paraguay to avoid extradition and died there in 1977
  • Aribert Heim, disappeared in 1962, most likely died in Egypt in 1992
  • Andrija Artuković, escaped to the United States, arrested in 1984 after decades of delay and extradited to Zagreb, Yugoslavia, where died in 1988
  • Ante Pavelić, escaped to Argentina in 1948, initially survived an assassination attempt in 1957, but died of his wounds in Spain in 1959
  • Walter Rauff, escaped to Chile, never captured, died in 1984
  • Alois Brunner, fled to Syria in 1954, died around 2010
  • Josef Mengele, fled to Argentina in 1949, then to other countries, dying in Brazil in 1979. Remains exhumed in 1985 and probably destroyed.

Requiem for a Republic

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | Sep 27, 2016


Thomas Woodrow Wilson (1856 –1924) was the 28th President of the United States

Thomas Woodrow Wilson (1856 –1924) was the 28th President of the United States

Now it is no secret that US President Woodrow Wilson helped lay the foundation for the current destruction of our Republic we are witnessing today.

So what did Wilson do?

 

 

  1. Signed into law the Federal Reserve Act (December 23, 1913) which handed over control of our money system to a small group of private bankers.
  2. Signed into law the 16th Amendment (February 3, 1913) which created the heretofore unconstitutional income tax
  3. Tricked Americans into entering WWI, after promising he wouldn’t. (see the sinking of the RMS Lusitania)
  4. Attempted to create the first world government (League of Nations) which was later replaced by the UN.

What is generally not known is that none of these were Wilson’s ideas, they emanated from Edward Mandell House who served those international bankers who met in secret on Jekyll Island October of 1907 to create the Federal Reserve.

“[Very] soon, every American will be required to register their biological property in a National system designed to keep track of the people and that will operate under the ancient system of pledging. By such methodology, we can compel people to submit to our agenda, which will affect our security as a chargeback for our fiat paper currency. Every American will be forced to register or suffer not being able to work and earn a living. They will be our chattel, and we will hold the security interest over them forever, by operation of the law merchant under the scheme of secured transactions. Americans, by unknowingly or unwittingly delivering the bills of lading to us will be rendered bankrupt and insolvent, forever to remain economic slaves through taxation, secured by their pledges. They will be stripped of their rights and given a commercial value designed to make us a profit and they will be none the wiser, for not one man in a million could ever figure our plans and, if by accident one or two would figure it out, we have in our arsenal plausible deniability. After all, this is the only logical way to fund government, by floating liens and debt to the registrants in the form of benefits and privileges. This will inevitably reap to us huge profits beyond our wildest expectations and leave every American a contributor or to this fraud which we will call “Social Insurance.” Without realizing it, every American will insure us for any loss we may incur and in this manner; every American will unknowingly be our servant, however begrudgingly. The people will become helpless and without any hope for their redemption and, we will employ the high office of the President of our dummy corporation to foment this plot against America.”

– Edward Mandell House; in a private meeting with Woodrow Wilson [President 1913-1921]

Cecil Rhodes

Cecil Rhodes, founder of De Beers and the world we live in today.

Cecil Rhodes, founder of De Beers and the world we live in today.

Cecil Rhodes (1853 – 1902), the founder of De Beers, is one of the most significant figures in world history, though many outside of Africa have never heard of this man and those who have, know only of  his time in Africa and his diamonds. The hidden history of Cecil’s real power and influence on world affairs was no accident. His vast fortune, his organizations of ‘rings within rings’ and his last will and testament created much of the unseen network that controls the world we live in today (Round Table, RIIA, CFR, The Milner Group, etc.);  waiting to be exposed sometime later by Professor Carroll Quigley in ‘The Anglo-American Establishment‘ and ‘Tragedy and Hope‘. Below, you will find some interesting collateral information on Cecil’s De Beers Empire from PBS and others, though the complete story is difficult to tell in one podcast. Time to get your know on. Please take the time to enjoy Richard Grove’s podcast below:  DIAMONDS: The Jewel of Denial / Outgrowing Stockholm Syndrome

Americans killed by US made weapons in the Korea and the Vietnam War

CLEARNFO.com | April 14, 2016

from Antony C. Sutton…

By Claritablue - Own work, CC BY-SA 3.0,

Antony C. Sutton By Claritablue – Own work, CC BY-SA 3.0,

“In Korea we have direct killing of Americans with Soviet weapons. The American casualty roll in the Korean War was 33,730 killed and 103,284 wounded… The 130,000-man North Korean Army, which crossed the South Korean border in June 1950, was trained, supported, and equipped by the Soviet Union, and included a brigade of Soviet T-34 medium tanks (with U.S. Christie suspensions). The artillery tractors were direct metric copies of Caterpillar tractors. The trucks came from the Henry Ford-Gorki plant or the ZIL plant. The North Korean Air Force has 180 Yak planes built in plants with U.S. Lend-Lease equipment. These Yaks were later replaced by MiG-15s powered by Russian copies of Rolls-Royce jet engines sold to the Soviet Union in 1947.”

“By using data of Russian origin it is possible to make an accurate analysis of the origins of this equipment. It was found that all the main diesel and steam-turbine propulsion systems of the ninety-six Soviet ships on the Haiphong supply run that could be identified (i.e., eighty-four out of the ninety-six) originated in design or construction outside the USSR. We can conclude, therefore, that if the State and Commerce Departments, in the 1950s and 1960s, had consistently enforced the legislation passed by Congress in 1949, the Soviets would not have had the ability to supply the Vietnamese War – and 50,000 more Americans and countless Vietnamese would be alive today.”

“Who were the government officials responsible for this transfer of known military technology? The concept originally came from National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger, who reportedly sold President Nixon on the idea that giving military techno­logy to the Soviets would temper their global territorial ambitions. How Henry arrived at this gigantic non sequitur is not known. Sufficient to state that he aroused considerable concern over his motivations. Not least that Henry had been a paid family employee of the Rockefellers since 1958 and has served as International Advisory Committee Chairman of the Chase Manhattan Bank, a Rockefeller concern.”

“Some years ago research strongly suggested that the Soviets had no indigenous military transport technology: neither motor vehicles nor marine diesel engines. Yet about 80 percent of the weapons and supplies for the North Vietnamese were transported by some means from the Soviet Union. The greater part of these Soviet weapons went to Vietnam by Soviet freighter and then along the Ho Chi Minh trail on Soviet-built trucks…

“Clearly, the Nixon Administration at the highest levels produced more than a normal number of deaf mutes – those officials who knew the story of our assistance to the Soviets but for their own reasons were willing to push forward a policy that could only work to the long run advantage of the United States.

It is paradoxical that an Administration that was noisy in its public anti-communist stance, and quick to point out the human cost of the Soviet system, was also an Administration that gave a gigantic boost to Soviet military truck capacity.”

Project 9/11: Benefits

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | Jan 16, 2016

World Trade Center Memorial

It has been over 14 years since the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, yet those responsible for this crime have not been brought to justice. Not a single one. Though whistleblowers like Sebel Edmonds and investigations like the 2,428 ‘Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth’ have cataloged an impressive list of facts that prove the Official Government Report is a complete fabrication, still the perpetrators of this crime remain at large. We’ve heard a lot of complaining and demanding for a real investigation, but nothing has happened. During these 14 years we have been able to discover many incontrovertible facts that prove beyond a shadow of doubt that 9/11 was an inside job followed by an official cover up, but the people who ran this covert project have not been prosecuted, and so remain in control of many levers of power in this country and world-wide advancing their agenda every day.

Many institutions have benefited like the CFR (Pratt House) and its sister, the RIIA (Chatham House); and entire industries like the Military-Industrial-Complex that Eisenhower warned about in the video below have benefited greatly from the events of 9/11. The “New Pearl Harbor” that all the twenty-five signatories to PNAC yearned for happened on 9/11, and of course the Federal Government has increased the scope, size and effectiveness of its power over the American people using illegal mass surveillance; more properly called spying and the Patriot Act among other unconstitutional powers the government has granted itself.  We can even point to individuals who benefited like the owner of the World Trade buildings and others.

There are many losers: the people who lost their lives on 9/11, their families; the millions we have slaughtered in endless illegal wars in the name of ‘fighting terrorism’; our dead soldiers and their families; the U.S. Constitution has been shredded; the freedoms, liberties and privacy U.S. citizens use to expect and enjoy are all gone… all in the name of ‘National Security’.

With all that we have lost, it occurred to me to ask how we have benefited. There are a few easy wins here. We have become more aware of the real and present danger we face from our own predatory government; and so, many of us have decided to stop doing what we used to do and spend more time paying attention to our government. We –America, collectively– have become more aware. No longer do we take the default position that what is reported by our government or by the news media can be trusted. We question the news media and we question our government, like never before; and for many like me, we have decided to take the time to discover what other lies have been told.

Since 9/11, I have read too many books to recount here but what I can tell you is that I have discovered a history and a pattern that heretofore was unknown by me. A history that had been covered up and hidden by design. A history that would show me that certain groups of men in America and Western Europe stole the Russian Revolution of 1917 and orchestrated the creation of the brutal, bone-crushing Soviet Union and their gulags; it showed me that these same groups of men orchestrated and benefited from both WWI & WWII; it showed me that the Korean and  Vietnam wars were just geopolitical projects orchestrated by these same folks. But more important than knowing there were certain powerful men who had benefited from so much human tragedy, was the knowledge of how they did it. Not a general, second-hand knowledge or a theory, but a front-row, prima facie knowledge; the foundation of which, was provided by Carroll Quigley in his ‘Anglo-American Establishment’ and his ‘Tragedy and Hope’. There are many other well–documented books that provide deep insights, but only Quigley had unlimited access to the Council on Foreign Relations archives.

The problem with Quigley however is that his best and most detailed history spans from the late 19th Century to about 1945. From 1945 to the present we must rely on Quigley’s foundation and then on the more traditional approaches to history.

Though Quigley gave us the map and detailed directions, we are currently driving through the fog: suspecting but not knowing in detail who the current batch of predators are. This is the major benefit of 9/11 as I see it. With all the mistakes made on 9/11 and the subsequent cover-up, we can now –almost in current time– identify by name those who were part of the 9/11 project. How can we do this? Well, we know the names of those who benefited like the owner of the World Trade Center buildings (Larry Silverstein) and we have good evidence he had foreknowledge by his actions just prior and during 9/11, but I see Larry as a bit player who likely assisted but didn’t do the planning.

With all the evidence coming forth since 9/11, we can know for certain that government agencies like NIST, and the FBI were key players along with Philip D. Zelikow executive director of the 9/11 commission; and of course Dick Cheney, who ordered the stand down. There are many others. I’m sure there are great people working at NIST and the FBI, but there is incontrovertible evidence the top levels of both the FBI and NIST were in on the cover-up if not the planning and so at a minimum are accessories after the fact and should be prosecuted.

Making a detailed list of the names of these folks; doing a Mind-Map using ‘The Brain’ software; and following their financial and political movements, will provide us much of what is missing since Quigley.  Our ‘Natural Predators’ have always been there; waiting, watching and planning for the opportunity that a project like 9/11 provided; but now, with their sloppy planning, execution and cover-up, like the invisible predator –who suddenly reveals himself– we now know their names, and we know their methods.  We will be watching.

A Real Education

A Real Education

A Real Education

To counteract some of the damage done by our public education system, I have given my 17 year old son, Jack, some reading material that should help get his head on straight, while providing him the ability to see through so much of the frankly false history promulgated by our schools, universities and media (The reading list is at the bottom).

I once believed the story of American history as related in the boring history classes I was forced to sit through in school, but as an adult I learned a painful lesson: that this history did not match the documented facts as we now know them today; and worse, much of the most important events have been completely omitted altogether. We know this, not just by going to original source documents, but by reading the minutes of Tax-Free foundations like the Carnage Foundation. We discover through Carnage that this was no mistake or oversight but a well-planned conspiracy that included Rockefeller, Guggenheim and others who sought to re-write the historical record in their own image to accomplish clandestine goals using the American Historical Association our Universities and others who could be controlled through grants.

Beyond just re-writing our history, our school systems have systematically imposed a compulsory education system for all, which replaced the idea of ‘authority based on truth’ with ‘truth based on authority’. This educational lobotomy was accomplished by replacing the Trivium method with the Prussian education system. The Prussian system removed the Trivium techniques of critical thought (grammar, logic and rhetoric) and replaced these with truth by authority. Additionally, data was memorized out of context by rote to confuse the young mind. This was no accident, but planned social engineering by the elite.

The reading list below may sound ominous for a 17 year old, but he has read all the Harry Potter books including ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ which is over 700 pages long, so this should be a walk in the park. A few years ago I was surprised that he took it upon himself to read the entire Bible from cover to cover without any encouragement from me; and now he says he is excited to read these books also.
