Splendid little war for America

If you’re like me, you didn’t learn too much about the “Splendid little war for America” back in 1898 – also known as the Spanish-American War. Not much is said about this little war, but it marks a major turning point for the United States. This pivotal, contrived war, was the banker’s ‘test-war’ to convince Americans that foreign entanglements were a good thing; and so, this was a “splendid little war” that set the template for all wars to follow; and America was brought from a non-interventionism posture into the beginnings of a world empire controlled by the international bankers. This was America’s first war for another country; and in this case, the excuse was to “liberate Cuba!”

The Spanish-American war had the classic trademarks of the wars we see today. So, what was the template?
1. Big false flag: The sinking of the Maine (zero evidence Spain had anything to do with this)
2. Bankers (National City Bank of New York) in control of the White House from behind the scene
3. Bankers pushing for the war (National City Bank of New York)
4. Americans propelled to the war by fake atrocity stories
5. Americans going overseas fighting for freedom and democracy

But after the provable false stories from the media about the actions of Spain —feeding Cubans to the sharks; the abuse of white women and children; roasting Cuban priests; butchered women and babies; and the depiction in the media about the Spanish being sub-human apes— the war was on, and everybody agreed it was a good and just war. Remember the incubator babies (Gulf war 1991), Gaddafi’s Viagra in Libya and Assad’s Sarin Gas? All false.

The splendid war was over in short order and everyone was happy. The Rockefellers got the sugar industry (sugar was so valuable at the time it was known as ‘white gold’) and the US took Puerto Rico, the Philippines and Guam from Spain and they grabbed Hawaii (not Spain’s) while they were at it.

We were told we would free the Cubans from Spain’s colonial rule, but when we took over, we called them not colonies but ‘possessions’, so that made it okay. In the Philippines, the rebels or the freedom fighters were fighting for self-determination against Spain, yet when we took over the Philippines, we betrayed these same freedom fighters that had just helped us. When it was all over, we had killed over 20,000 military men in the freedom movement and 200,000 more civilians… yes, it was a very splendid war indeed. This was the little war whose very successful template set the stage for all US wars to follow.

War is a Racket – Smedley Butler

“I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”

CHAPTER ONE

War Is A Racket

WAR is a racket. It always has been.

It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.

A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small “inside” group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.

In the World War [I] a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the World War. That many admitted their huge blood gains in their income tax returns. How many other war millionaires falsified their tax returns no one knows.

How many of these war millionaires shouldered a rifle? How many of them dug a trench? How many of them knew what it meant to go hungry in a rat-infested dug-out? How many of them spent sleepless, frightened nights, ducking shells and shrapnel and machine gun bullets? How many of them parried a bayonet thrust of an enemy? How many of them were wounded or killed in battle?

Out of war nations acquire additional territory, if they are victorious. They just take it. This newly acquired territory promptly is exploited by the few — the selfsame few who wrung dollars out of blood in the war. The general public shoulders the bill.

And what is this bill?

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.

How War is Made

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

How War is made:

  1. CFR tells the US State Department that we need more war
  2. US State Department tells the US Government that we need more war
  3. The US Government tells the Federal Reserve we need more money for more war
  4. The Federal Reserve prints money from thin air and loans it to the US Government
  5. The US Government tells the Media we need more war
  6. The Media and the US Government tell the people we need more war
  7. The US Government has more war
  8. The people pay the US Government for more war
  9. The US Government pays the Federal Reserve
  10. Go to step one and repeat

Stopping ISIS

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

Fort Hood has put a boot on the ground for every American life lost in Iraq and Afghanistan. A powerful memorial.

Though it is an admitted fact, the CIA built the tunnels we are now bombing with MOAB in Afghanistan, this is only a small piece of the larger puzzle that seems to confound the general public who has little knowledge or context that is not supplied by the MSM or the entertainment industry. Add to this the fact most Americans don’t read and have a very short attention span.

You may champion Trump’s bombing of the evil radical’s tunnels in Afghanistan, but when you add the other pieces of the puzzle, you might come to a different conclusion. What are the other pieces? They are that Al-Qaeda actually is just the name of a file at the FBI that means ‘the base’ and that Al-Qaeda was an invention of the USA. Ben Laden was funded by the CIA ($3 billion). The CIA gets much of its off the books funding from drug trafficking, thus it is no surprise US forces in Afghanistan are protecting the poppy fields; and opium production in Afghanistan has mushroomed from a small trickle to now providing 90% of the world’s opium since the US illegal and unconstitutional invasion of this sovereign country. ISIS has been funded, trained and armed by the USA, (Gen. Michael Flynn and others) ISIS is part of a US-backed Gladio-B operation used to destabilize the MENA (FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds and others). Gladio-A was used in Ukraine. The sarin gas in the 2013 attack was supplied from Libya by the US and delivered by US-backed rebel-fighters (Seymour Hersh, CIA operative Tosh Plumlee and others), though the US blamed Assad. Assad and Russia are the only ones protecting Christians in Syria. Prior to the US efforts to destabilize Syria, Muslims, Jews and Christians lived and worked in relative peace together in Syria for 200 years. The US-backed rebels have slaughtered some 300K innocent civilians mostly Christians. ISIS, et al. are just a US-proxy army carrying out a larger US Geopolitical strategy outlined in Zibig’s 1997 book entitled ‘The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy And Its Geostrategic Imperatives’. The US had a policy to destroy 7 countries in 5 years in the ME (see General Wesley Clark Supreme Allied Commander Europe of NATO). BTW this is all illegal and unconstitutional. The US cannot be trusted. The US is the greatest force for evil on the planet.

Most of the so-called radical extremists are grown and cultured in the 1000s of Wahhabi Madrassas funded by our best head-chopper pal Saudi Arabia.

How to defeat the radical extremists? Stop funding, arming and training them and then get rid of their major supporter, the House of Saud. Next, stop bombing the shit out of everyone, then stop destabilizing the MENA through regime change. By destroying Libya –for example—we have taken the lid off of Africa which ushered in a massive influx of refugees into the EU.

It’s all theater for public consumption, while the neocons get rich and the globalists get their larger geopolitical goals met. Stop being their fools. Now.

Has Trump Surrendered?

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | April  6, 2017

Is Trump losing the Neocon chess game or is he just sacrificing some pawns to ready for a future attack? 

Neocon Chess …
-Flynn Resigns as National Security Adviser
-Bannon removed from National Security Council
-Nunes steps aside from Russia investigation
-Trump attacks Syria

Trump just lobbed 59 Tomahawk missiles ($1.6M ea.) at a country that does not threaten the US and without a declaration of war as required by the US Constitution. Keep in mind that Assad has done nothing to the USA and does not threaten our national security in the least. Also, keep in mind, the first sarin gas attack the West blamed on Assad turned out to be supplied by Hillary. Does it matter the so-called (US-backed) ‘rebels’ have slaughtered 100s of thousands of innocent Syrians, most of whom were Christians? Does it matter that only Putin and Assad (not US/NATO) are protecting the Christians in Syria?

THIS IS WHAT A TOMAHAWK CRUISE MISSILE DOES

Saudi Arabia and Qatar didn’t want Iran and Syria to build a proposed pipeline between Iran and Syria which would have been competition to the House of Saud and Qatar (Our best head-chopping buds for life). The House of Saud didn’t like Syria’s Assad because he is Alawite not Sunni like them. Most of Syria (64%) is Sunni. Interesting note: Muslims, Jews and Christians have lived and worked in relative peace together in Syria for 200 years. Also, it is important to note that the US Geopolitical strategy was to destabilize the Middle East which included Syria so the Saudi and US State Department are in complete agreement that Assad must to go.

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]

Important interview with Dr. Paul Craig Roberts by Dr. Julian Charles
(Published on Saturday, 28 May 2016 21:24)

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

from The Mind Renewed

“Remain” or “Leave”? What does the UK’s EU Referendum—scheduled 23rd June—really amount to? Is it simply the opportunity for UK citizens to decide if Britain should stay in the European Union? Or is it something of greater significance, with broader and more serious implications? And just what is this thing called the EU anyway?

Joining us, once again, to discuss these questions is Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former US Assistant Secretary to the Treasury for Ecomonic Policy, who explains the EU’s beginnings as a project of the CIA, and assesses its current role as as an anti-democratic tool of corporate control. Whether or not a majority “leave” vote will actually lead to Brexit, Dr. Roberts argues that a decisive rejection of EU membership by UK citizens could embolden other EU member states to follow suit, thus precipitating the break-up of NATO, and in turn, bringing an end to Washington’s crazy designs for a New World Order.
