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.”

Trump has flipped

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | April  23, 2017

Quick assessment on Trump:

  1. He has flipped to the Neocons
  2. He has flipped to the Deep State
  3. He has partially flipped to the Globalists

If Trump flips on all three, we will have a de facto continuation of the Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Obama agendas.

More in-depth, penetrating analysis from from Dr. Paul Craig Roberts…

TMR 171 : Dr. Paul Craig Roberts : Trump Is Over
Published on Saturday, 22 April 2017 20:50

“I think that the Trump presidency is already over. I’m not even sure he qualifies as a figurehead.”—PCR

Dr. Julian Charles: “We are joined once again by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former US Assistant Secretary to the Treasury for Economic Policy, for a discussion on the Trump presidency so far.”

Dr. Roberts assesses the performance of the new president and his administration with reference to pre-election promises; shares with us his view that the deep state has effectively neutralised Donald Trump as US president; gives his reaction to the so-called “Syrian gas attack” in Idlib, and the subsequent military action by the US against Syria; and considers the very real prospects for war as Washington steps up its warmongering around the globe.

James Perloff on Trump, Syria and the New World Order

Published on May 25, 2017

James Perloff returns to Our Interesting Times to his article “Trump Is Unmasked: 14 Reasons Why the Syria Airstrikes Were a Really Bad Idea.”  We talk about President Trump’s decision to order a missile attack on a Syrian airfield last month and why this apparent betrayal is a signal that his administration has been co-opted by neoconservative warmongers and the Israeli lobby. Later we discuss Trump’s alleged ties to Russia, his connections to the Deep State and organized crime.

Trump and the Neocons

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | April  15, 2017

There are many theories on the Trump phenomenon.  Here are a few variables to consider:

  • The RNC and the DNC did not want Trump to win.
  • The DNC’s preferred candidate was Hillary Clinton
  • The RNC’s preferred candidate was Jeb Bush
  • The establishment Republicans preferred Hillary to Trump (on record); there were likely many more.
  • Trump was seen by the DNC and likely by the RNC as a tool to assure a Hillary victory
  • The CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) did not want Trump
  • The Trilateral Commission did not want Trump
  • The Neocons did not want Trump
  • The Bilderbergers did not want Trump
  • The Davos bootlickers and groupies did not want Trump
  • The MSM did not want Trump
  • Elements of the deep state did not want Trump (Deep State: The permanent state.  Those elements controlled by the CFR who reside within the permanent state. Examples: CIA, NSA, State Department and many other top agencies.)
  • The European Commission which controls the EU did not want Trump
  • Hillary cheated Bernie out of the nomination
  • The RNC attempted to cheat Trump out of the nomination
  • There was massive unreported voter fraud committed by Hillary supporters during the election
  • George Soros did not want Trump
  • The uninformed and misinformed Democrat rank and file did not want Trump

The table was set for a Hillary win, but Trump’s populism overwhelmed the system.  Despite Trump’s win, the powerful enemies list above was not to be denied.  Their next step was to stop Trump at any cost.  They’ve tried to tie Trump to the Russians with absolutely zero evidence and despite the full support of the MSM to paint this narrative in the minds of the American public, this ruse has failed. They would like to have an impeachment, but I’m not sure if they have figured this one out yet, though they are working day and night on this tactic.  In the meantime, Trump’s enemies within the deep state, and with help from the neocons in Congress, have been able to apparently cause Trump defaults on many of his campaign pledges; though some may seem to be a default are in fact consistent with his prior statements.

A few signs of problems surfaced prior to the election like Trump’s pick of Pence for VP.  Pence is a true-blue globalist, though many uninformed have debated me on this.  Pence being labeled as a conservative Christian is enough for them.   What they do not realize is that I was doing some homework on Pence prior to his selection as VP.  What I discovered was very disturbing.  I read Pence’s web site while he was Governor of Indiana (2013–2017).  On his web site was a glowing, detailed endorsement of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) which was my major concern with Cruz.  This was removed from the Website immediately after Pence was picked for VP.  Unknown to most of Americans who have their head permanently stuck inside the propaganda cannon we call TV, the TPP would have ceded US sovereignty to an unelected board of bureaucrats reporting to international banking and business interest subjugating the US Constitution under this globalist framework. The TPP would have controlled the movement of goods services and people and relegated the US Constitution to an historical foot note.  Even the passage of the fast track authorization for TPP in the Senate was done underhandedly.  Since the TPP is a treaty and not an agreement it is required to have a 2/3rds vote (66) in the senate—which they did not have– but the Republican-controlled senate changed this constitutional requirement to a simple majority vote of 51 calling this treaty an agreement.  Additionally, the agreement was held behind locked doors in the basement where none of the Senators could read this 5,544 page treaty prior to passage without special provisions.  You could not have a cell phone, take pictures or notes or have an aid accompany you.

NPR: “For any senator who wants to study the draft TPP language, it has been made available in the basement of the Capitol, inside a secure, soundproof room. There, lawmakers surrender their cellphones and other mobile devices. Any notes taken inside the room must be left in the room.

Only aides with high-level security clearances can accompany lawmakers. Members of Congress can’t ask outside industry experts or lawyers to analyze the language. They can’t talk to the public about what they read. And Brown says there’s no computer inside the secret room to look something up when there’s confusion. You just consult the USTR official.”

So for Pence to support TPP, either he is a moron, uninformed or he is a globalist.  Pence is no moron.

Then we have the case of General Michael Flynn (Trump’s National Security Adviser) who was forced to resign because he wasn’t entirely honest with VP Pence about talking to the Russians.  This is a bold-faced lie and used as cover to get rid of Flynn.  Why?  Because, yes Flynn did talk to the Russians, but that is his job. Now what did he say to the Russians?  Flynn deflected from any substantive talks and said that they could discuss with Trump and others once Trump was confirmed.  Nothing wrong here, but Flynn was forced out nonetheless.

It is important to note why Flynn is so important here.  Flynn was the General who outed Obama’s support for ISIS, and Flynn led that part of the deep state that refused to support ISIS.  Flynn’s leadership in this internal battle helped elect Trump and protect Trump, yet Trump thought nothing of throwing Flynn and his reputation under the bus.  Why?  I do not know, but what I do know is that the reason Trump gave for removing Flynn was a bold-faced lie.

Since the Flynn removal, Trump has moved closer to the position of the Neocons as evidenced when he used the exact same lie Obama did to attack Syria.  Trump lie #2.  Everyone including Trump knows that Assad did not release sarin gas on his own people, but that doesn’t matter for the narrative promulgated by the neocons and their sycophant press.  So now, Trump is seeming to look more acceptable to the Neocons but has alienated much of his base.    Trump has done a 180 on his support for NATO and is showing other signs of compromise on previously stated core values.  Trump’s selection of CIA Chief Mike Pompeo is very worrisome to say the least.

The true-blue Trump supporters are saying that Trump is playing –not 3D chess– but 64D chess, and we just can’t see the big picture.   While Trump is a great improvement over a Jeb or a Hillary and continues to deliver on some domestic promises, we cannot relax, we must continue the battle to reestablish this Republic and the Individual Rights our founding documents guarantee.

Tax-Exempt Foundations

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | April 14, 2017

Even if the MSM wasn’t the major source of propaganda we consume today; and even if they told the truth 100% of the time, that would not be enough. Why? Because they –like so many of us– live within a ‘Walled-Garden’ constructed with the help of many of our tax-exempt foundations; and this is documented in their own archives as revealed in the 1953 U.S. Congressman B. Carroll Reece Special Committee on Tax Exempt Foundations (commonly referred to as the Reece Committee).

So even if the MSM decided to become legit, they would fall short of the mark, since so many of their fundamental assumptions are just incorrect. The walls of the garden are constructed of these unexamined assumptions. So, if we intend to discover the truth, we must learn to look over these walls and see what is on the other side.

Comment from Steven Gutmann Interesting that it happened right at the same time as the McCarthy hearings, too…

“The final report was submitted by Norman Dodd, and because of its provocative nature, the committee became subject to attack. He began by listing criticisms of the Cox Committee, and then moved on to content.

In the Dodd report to the Reece Committee on Foundations, he gave a definition of the word “subversive”, saying that the term referred to “Any action having as its purpose the alteration of either the principle or the form of the United States Government by other than constitutional means.” He then argued that the Ford Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, and Carnegie Endowment were using funds excessively on projects at Columbia, Harvard, Chicago University and the University of California, in order to enable oligarchical collectivism. He stated, “The purported deterioration in scholarship and in the techniques of teaching which, lately, has attracted the attention of the American public, has apparently been caused primarily by a premature effort to reduce our meager knowledge of social phenomena to the level of an applied science.” He stated that his research staff had discovered that in “1933-1936, a change took place which was so drastic as to constitute a “revolution”. They also indicated conclusively that the responsibility for the economic welfare of the American people had been transferred heavily to the Executive Branch of the Federal Government; that a corresponding change in education had taken place from an impetus outside of the local community, and that this “revolution” had occurred without violence and with the full consent of an overwhelming majority of the electorate.” He stated that this revolution “could not have occurred peacefully, or with the consent of the majority, unless education in the United States had been prepared in advance to endorse it.”

Rogue Nation

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | Mar 29, 2016

Rogue Nation

Rogue Nation

The Western Media act as the gatekeepers of information using two primary methods: Omission: They partially or completely ignore important information without which their consumers cannot make informed judgements. They are in effect the editor of the story they are selling. Propaganda: They use the many tools in the propagandists’ quiver such as the 42 primary logical fallacies, promotion of truth by authority not authority by truth, disinformation based on false assumptions and promulgate information that is fundamentally false and of course Hollywood. At the end of the day, you have a general population who believes the officially promulgated narrative which serves not the consumer’s interest but the interest of others.

So it is not surprising most Americans think Putin invaded Ukraine for example, not realizing it was their own State Department and CIA that orchestrated the violent takeover of a democratically elected government resulting in the deaths of thousands of innocent men, women and children. This is all well-documented, but cannot be found in the major media organs in the West. The techniques of this takeover in Ukraine are also well documented: Gladio B, Color Revolutions, NGOs, etc.

These same techniques were used by the US/NATO using Gladio A, the Arab Spring, etc… setting the entire MENA region on fire; resulting in the deaths of millions, and the total destruction of many nations in this area. Still most Americans blame this on the local people and on IS/ISIS/ISIL, etc. as their media have taught them to do. It is also a well-documented fact, that the US/NATO, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Turkey and Qatar have armed, trained and funded IS/ISIS/ISIL for use as their covert proxy army to give them plausible deniability. They pretend to fight ISIS, while at the same time supporting ISIS.

The media have kept this important information from most of their consumers, but they have not been successful hiding the US/NATO actions from the likes of Russia and China and others. All have watched in horror as the leader of the so called ‘Free World’ has uncloaked in front of them, revealing a chilling unchecked duplicity and villainy with no respect for human life, national borders, international law or even the laws of their own countries. The result is that while Russia and China once believed that they could engage in arms-length transactions, build trust and a workable relationship over time; all this has now been shattered by the actions of the US and its vassal states in tow. A great opportunity has been lost.

Now that Russia and China have witnessed the repeated lawlessness of the US, they no longer dream of a partner that they can learn to work with, rather they are now preparing to protect themselves from this rabid, rogue nation; and, perhaps how to confront and put it down.

Talk Radio KTRH 740 AM

KTRH NEWSRADIO

KTRH NEWSRADIO

Talk radio KTRH 740 AM’s talent and employees all agree that Cruz is a saint and Trump is the devil. They have used their own group-think to work themselves up into a frothing mental lather of insanity and in the process turned KTRH into a Cruz echo-chamber. Their folks are constantly pumping Cruz and dissing Trump; and in the process, twisting themselves into unnatural mental pretzels. It is an amazing display of ignorance masquerading as truth and wisdom. All their talent: Michael Berry, Matt Patrick and Shara Fryer; even the weather-person and traffic man are getting in on the action. Add to this their paid programming: Mark Levin’s blind allegiance to Cruz and even Rush spent an hour defending Cruz; though Rush is much more circumspect, and you have a complete programming day designed to pump Cruz ad nauseam. The team at KTRH are amazingly monolithic in their politics. The lengths they will go to protect Cruz is very entertaining. For example, they are 100% positive that Cruz has never, ever cheated on his wife. How could they possibly know this? If it turns out that the National Enquirer is correct, they will all look more ignorant than they already do. How will they explain this to their loyal audience they have misled?

Intel Collections at the CFR

Yesterday and today, I watched and listened to several Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) media events: from the global economy, to the immigration problem in Europe to Global Warming (see list below).

Now many people have learned the sorry history of the CFR from the likes of Quigley, Sutton and others but the CFR’s official face is one of kindness, intelligence and regal quality, not that of a predator.

So why watch such establishment drivel from the likes of the CFR?   Well, it is important to learn from those who seek to take your freedom and to be blunt, they do their homework and produce quality information. The trick is separating the wheat from the chaff else-wise you get sucked into their beautiful walled-garden of illusions and redirection.

Other than some useful facts, I learned the following:

  • They constantly remind you that The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is an independent, nonpartisan membership organization, think tank, and publisher.  Joe Plummer: …But they keep quiet about their origins: “The Inquiry” and Cecil Rhodes’ “Round Table Groups,” formed to bring “all habitable portions of the world” under their control.
  • They regularly throughout their presentations warn their speakers especially just before specific sensitive questions that … “Remember, you are on the record.” At which point the speaker may pause and take a bit more time to consider his response to a question.
  • All the speakers, moderators and the audience agree on fundamentals: Russia is evil. Russia invaded the Ukraine and man-made Global Warming. There is never, ever any room to question any of their fundamental assumptions which were given them by their pay masters.  These presentations are — in effect– an echo chamber.
  • They are still using the CFR to infiltrate our schools and our universities with establishment, globalist propaganda; and every single student or doctored professor in attendance eagerly gobbles up this hooey, hook line and sinker, apparently with nary a single critical thought.

Open Mic: Tehran

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | June 18, 2015

This is an interesting piece from the Compromised News Network a.k.a. CNN whose function is to spread U.S. propaganda. It does however comport with my view of reality concerning the Iranian people. Why? Because I went to school with many Iranians and this speaks to the truth of the majority of Iranians as I know them.  My big question is why a state-controlled media organ like CNN would publish something so obviously true? Scratching my head. This open mic news piece was published on Sep 25, 2013

 

Iran in 1960 - 70s

Picture of Iran from 1960 – 70s…

Despite reformatting their countries after WWI, Islam was on the path to moderation and modernization, until the U.S. began stirring the shit in earnest according to the ‘Made in America’ geopolitical strategies cooked up by Wolfowitz, Brzezinski and others.  Seems the average Westerner is happily indoctrinated by the many fictions created by the media and so follows the direction given without question; critical thought or examination of false assumptions promulgated by the state/corporate propaganda organs rarely makes it to the general public’s awareness, and if by chance it does, is soon forgotten.
