Paul Craig Roberts: The American Media Is A CIA Front

CLEARNFO.com | April 12, 2016

Notable message from Paul Craig Roberts

I reported honestly the facts of the US coup that overthrew the elected Ukrainian government in 2014 (see my columns in February and March 2014). However, the US print and TV media, led by the New York Times, lied through their teeth.

Indeed, the “mainstream” US media functioned as agent and propagandist for the Washington neoconservatives who destroyed Ukrainian democracy and imposed massive suffering and death on Ukrainians.

There is no crime that the American presstitutes will not commit and no lie that they will not tell.

Yesterday (April 11, 2016) Robert Parry held the sordid presstitutes accountable:

The Walled-Garden Revisited (II)

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | April 10, 2016

The Walled-Garden

The Walled-Garden

Imagine, if you will, a vast collection of people, scurrying about doing their daily chores surrounded by walls.  Within these walls lay rolling hills of green grass, tall strong oak trees, and of course fruit, wine and game, all for the taking.  You and your fellows live within these walls constructed so long ago, that everyone ignores them and has just about forgotten they even exist; so much so, they have become invisible to the average man.  But still, every so often, a hapless chap ventures beyond the walls and becomes raving mad.  No one will have anything to do with him or even hire him to do a job because he makes no sense.   No one knows for sure, where precisely the walls begin or end but by fear.  The story goes that if you were to get close to the wall, fear would surly warn of your impending demise and you would quickly go mad if you did not possess the good sense to immediately turn back toward home.

Over the many years of living within the walls, there were disagreements and ruckuses and tussles, but they all stayed clearly within the confines of this walled garden; and so life was not perfect but tolerable, understandable and well-behaved within the garden.

Yet still it is necessary to remind all through education and broadcasting of the tribal knowledge we have gained from past experience.  Highly-trained and trusted experts inform the masses that these walls really do not in fact exist as described; they represent only an illusion, yet warn not to get too close lest ye shall surly lose your mind.

So this is where the majority of Americans find themselves today. Even our brave and brilliant luminaries like Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin and others give homage to our wall.

So what is this wall constructed of?  It is made from mythologies and cherished beliefs based on false assumptions.  What are some of these beliefs?  I have listed a few below, all of which are demonstrably false, yet still the majority of Americans still believe.

  • That America is a good and decent country trying to save democracy and freedom
  • That America’s wars of the 20th century were justified to save democracy and freedom
  • That America uses its financial and military might to spread democracy and freedom in the world
  • That JFK was killed by a lone gunman
  • That the Warren Commission Report was a true and accurate report
  • That the attacks on 9/11 were planned and carried out by Al Qaeda
  • That the 9/11 Commission Report was a true and accurate report
  • That the invasion of Iraq was a mistake
  • That the invasion of Afghanistan was to fight Al Qaeda
  • That the invasion of Libya was to save the Libyan people
  • That the war in Ukraine was caused by Putin
  • That the war in Syria is to save the Syrian people
  • That the Federal Reserve is federal and has reserves

All of the above constitute parts or bricks of the wall that surrounds our garden.  There are many more such bricks but they all have one thing in common.  They are all false.  Provably false.

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.

Was the USSR an evil empire?

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | July 6, 2015

NWO vs the Nation-State

The NWO vs The Nation-State

Was the USSR an evil empire? Yes! 

It was also created by the USA.

Don’t believe me? Inform yourselves by reading Antony C. Sutton’s book entitled Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution. Did Stalin kill millions of people including Ukrainians? Yes. Did the New York Times cover-up Stalin’s genocide? Yes. Did the Wall Street bankers fund arms through Russia used against U.S. Soldiers in Vietnam? Yes. Is Putin a saint? No. Putin is ex-KGB (USSR) and as a requirement of staying in power must deal with the corrupt oligarchs left over from the USSR era and the newly minted mafiosi in Russia today. While all of this is true, don’t confuse the old Soviet USSR (existed between 1922 and 1991) with the current Russian Federation. They are not the same. The ‘Anglo-American Establishment‘ of international bankers who run the USA are after a one world government. Putin still believes in the ‘nation-state’ as most Americans do. This, my friends, is what the real battle with Russia is all about. The propaganda you read and watch in the Western press is orchestrated by the same people who are shredding the U.S. Constitution and would enslave you. Get a clue. By buying into and repeating the Western propaganda against Russia, you are unwittingly promoting the sacrifice of your sons and daughters to advance the NWO’s agenda and your own enslavement.

“There has been a continuing, albeit concealed, alliance between international political capitalists and international revolutionary socialists – to their mutual benefit.”

RAND Corporation on Ukraine

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | June 1, 2015

RAND Corporation

RAND Corporation

Most people have no clue of who the RAND Corp. is, their history or their function within the U.S. Federal Government.  Below is the leaked document from the RAND Corp. that identifies their plan for eastern Ukraine.  Why is this important to you?  Because it reveals their methods and procedures that our U.S. Pentagon Planners take very seriously and frequently act upon.  This will also give you some sense of what to expect when and IF these techniques are turned in upon U.S. Citizens.  There are many other interested parties and participants in the U.S.-backed and orchestrated coup in Ukraine back in Feb of 2014, but this provides a level of detail left out of some of the other geopolitical strategies found in Zbig’s Grand Chessboard, etc.

A strategic document by the US military think tank RAND Corporation on the plan in eastern Ukraine was leaked.​ The Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko follows the action plan proposed by RAND analysts. The document provides three stages of a military operation in eastern Ukraine.

  • During the first stage of the military operation in Ukraine martial law should be introduced, considering that all local citizens are terrorists or sympathizers. Regions supporting militias must be completely isolated. All types of communications should be blocked, curfews should be established.
  • The second stage of the plan involves the seizure of territories. The cities should be entered with armed vehicles, which open fire on all armed people. All the men sent to filtration camps. People featuring traces of combat engagement shall be tried in court for terrorism.
  • The third phase of the plan involves the restoration of the regions. The borders shall be strengthened to avoid possible provocations. All the refugees should be checked for possible support for separatists in internment camps.

The document stresses that the area of ​​operation should not be representatives of the foreign media. Should also be carried out mass propaganda campaign.

There’s more to Monsanto than meets the eye

Monsanto

Monsanto

There’s more to Monsanto than meets the eye …

Frederic Mousseau, who is a Policy Director at The Oakland Institute:

“We saw in 2013 that Monsanto invested $140 million in new seed plans in Ukraine. It is clearly the bread basket of Europe and it is a key target for a company like Monsanto, which sees this huge potential for production and this huge market. Europe has been quite resistant in allowing GMOs, but if they are successful in Ukraine then there might be a domino effect in Europe.”

The $17 billion IMF loan to Ukraine is contingent on Ukraine allowing GMO crops: IMF loan stipulations require permitting GMO production.

Putin doesn’t like GMO BTW.

Meet Pierre Omidyar

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | May 8, 2015

Pierre Omidyar (2007)

Pierre Omidyar (2007)

Who is Pierre Omidyar? Well, he is a billionaire… who is also Glenn Greenwald’s boss who helped the CIA fund the violent overthrow of the democratically elected government of Ukraine last year (documents below) so that the US State Department could install their own puppet government. Remember Julian Assange of Wikileaks who is held up in the Ecuadorian embassy in the UK since 2012 because the US Government wants his hide? Well, Pierre Omidyar also suspended WikiLeaks’ donation account and froze its assets leaving WikiLeaks facing a funding crisis. Seems Pierre gets around. He and pal George Soros have both assisted the CIA and the State Department in the putsch in Ukraine. Small world. It’s interesting to note that Soros proudly admits to helping Hitler in his youth (yes, he is that old) and now he along with the US Government are helping the Neo-Nazis in Ukraine.

Note: Pierre, is the the billionaire owner of PayPal Corporation has entered into a $250 Million business partnership with two journalists-Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras, a journalist duo who possess the entire cache of evidence provided by Edward Snowden.

The Art of Propaganda

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | April 27, 2015

Eleanor Clift

Eleanor Clift

This article is a good, teachable moment for discovering –for yourself– the clever methods and techniques of propaganda …

Many who read the article below by Elenor Clift entitled ‘Behind the Man Who Outed Clinton’s Cash’, may get a sense of Clift’s honesty and truthfulness –and she may very well be all of those things; however, what perhaps is a bit less obvious is that this article is laced with sugar-coated propaganda; which, if you don’t have your ‘bull-shit protector’ on, can go undetected into the mind’s vast archive of unexamined assumptions; which are indeed, and in fact completely erroneous. This is how propaganda works. You mix some truth with some lies and feed it to the population.

I am a Peter Schweizer fan and greatly admire his amazing work in investigating our permanent political class and their financial malfeasance, bribery and outright theft. He has a long history of going after both the Democrats and the Republicans without prejudice. This fact is well known to those familiar with Schweizer’s work.

Ms. Clift makes some good points: like it took both the NYT and 60 Minutes to expose Schweitzer’s great research on insider dealing by our elected officials. Congress would do nothing to stop this corruption until they were exposed by these two MSM spigots.

To get an idea of the thick propaganda laced throughout this article, here is just one syrupy example…

“It’s a mistake for the Clinton campaign to write off conservative author Peter Schweizer as a right-wing hack. It won’t work, and it’s not true. If he were as off-base as the campaign and its allies portray him, would a high-quality publication like The New York Times risk its reputation by partnering with him? And would Common Cause, the gold standard for good-government groups, which is currently chaired by former Clinton labor secretary Robert Reich, be calling for an independent review that would be made public of all large donations to the Clinton Foundation?

What’s wrong with the above paragraph by Ms. Clift? “… high-quality publication like The New York Times risk its reputation by partnering with him?”  Now it is crystal clear to anyone educated in history that the NYT has anything but a good reputation and has used the illusion of its good reputation to carry the water for many an evil and corrupt government. You can start with the NYT hiding the massive genocide of the Ukrainians by Stalin: some 10 million souls lost on that lie. This is not my opinion but a documented fact. In another example and there are many, David Rockefeller thanked the NYT for hiding the truth from the American people below:

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years.”

He went on to explain:

“It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.”

–David Rockefeller 1991

Peter Schweizer’s book, Throw Them All Out, was published in 2011 and we are just now recognizing its importance? Why did it take the MSM so long?

If you read Ms. Cliff’s entire article you can barely find a sentence or paragraph without some deception or propaganda mixed in. The problem is that if you are not aware of this, you can read the entire article and think wow, if the NYT risked its reputation to publicize this then it must be true. Well Schweizer’s work stands on its own and is true with or without the NYT. The fact is, the NYT has zero credibility and has caused itself to be used by the Anglo-American establishment since its inception.

The information on the Clinton’s corruption has been out in public for a very long time. This is not news. So the real question is: Why has the establishment decided to gut Hillary now?

A Small World After All: from Fannie Mae to 9/11

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | April 7, 2015

Robert Kagan (CFR)

Robert Kagan (CFR)

The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) was founded in 1997 by William Kristol and CFR member  Robert Kagan. It was disbanded in 2006. Robert Kagan is married to Victoria Nuland the current Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs at the United States Department of State. She is the one –you might recall– who was caught on the phone planning the replacement government in Kiev after the US-backed coup in Ukraine in February, 2014. The media dutifully focused all attention on Victoria’s “F**k the EU” comment and ignored the important fact that it was the USA who was behind the Ukrainian coup  as this tape clearly shows.

BTW, prior to the February 2014 over-throw of the democratically elected government in Ukraine, the CIA had spent $5 billion to foment unrest in Ukraine to facilitate this putsch in Kiev. This tinkering by the Nuland gang, has cost the lives of thousands of innocent, Russian-speaking men, women and children in the Donbass area of Ukraine.

Now back to Victoria’s husband’s project called PNAC: Notice this interesting quote from PNAC prior to 9/11:… the transformation of American armed forces through “new technologies and operational concepts” was likely to be a long one, “absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.[emphasis mine]   Of the twenty-five people who signed the PNAC’s founding statement of principles, ten went on to serve in the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush, including Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and Paul Wolfowitz. Notice that PNAC expresses a need for a new Pearl Harbor. The obvious question is: Was 9/11 their ‘New Pearl Harbor’?

In the November/December 1998 edition of the CFR’s magazine called Foreign Affairs, you will notice numerous references to CIA-backed Usama bin Ladin, Catastrophic Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction, Pearl Harbor and the World Trade Center all prior to 9/11.  Prior to 9/11 all the necessary ingredients were clearly on the CFR’s radar being telegraphed or put into the pot for cooking.

In this same November/December 1998 edition there is an article entitled Catastrophic Terrorism: Tackling the New Danger by Ashton B. Carter, John Deutch, and Philip Zelikow (CFR) which is of particular interest considering this was prior to 9/11.

Philip Zelikow (CFR)

Philip Zelikow (CFR)

And let us not forget that Philip Zilakow (CFR) –author of the above article– was the executive director of the 9/11 Commission report who had many conflicts of interests and was caught calling the WH –which was not permitted– many times during the ‘Investigation’ and he was also caught trying to cover up these calls…and is credited with limiting the scope of the investigation.

 

From Rense.com: In 1998, Zelikow actually wrote Catastrophic Terrorism about imagining “the transformative event” three years before 9/11. Here are Zelikow’s 1998 words; Readers should imagine the possibilities for themselves, because the most serious constraint on current policy [nonaggression] is lack of imagination. An act of catastrophic terrorism that killed thousands or tens of thousands of people and/or disrupted the necessities of life for hundreds of thousands, or even millions, would be a watershed event in America’s history. It could involve loss of life and property unprecedented for peacetime and undermine Americans’ fundamental sense of security within their own borders in a manner akin to the 1949 Soviet atomic bomb test, or perhaps even worse. Constitutional liberties would be challenged as the United States sought to protect itself from further attacks by pressing against allowable limits in surveillance of citizens, detention of suspects, and the use of deadly force. More violence would follow, either as other terrorists seek to imitate this great “success” or as the United States strikes out at those considered responsible. Like Pearl Harbor, such an event would divide our past and future into a “before” and “after.” The effort and resources we devote to averting or containing this threat now, in the “before” period, will seem woeful, even pathetic, when compared to what will happen “after.” Our leaders will be judged negligent for not addressing catastrophic terrorism more urgently.

And let us not forget that the World Trade Center was attacked by an FBI operative in 1993 –with FBI foreknowledge and help.  There is no question that the FBI was complicit in this first World Trade Center attack.  The obvious question is: “Was the FBI orchestrated attack on the World Trade Center in 1993, just a trial run?”

Being well-connected … that would be Jamie … though she had no experience… she was a key player in the Fannie Mae debacle and the 9/11 report… what did she do worth $26 million?

9/11 Commission | Jamie Gorelick lower right

Jamie Gorelick, while serving in the Department of Justice under the Clinton administration, developed the policy (the “wall memo”) that prevented communication between various government law enforcement and intelligence agencies, specifically the FBI and CIA. She also is on the board of United Technologies. Gorelick’s firm has agreed to represent Prince Mohammed al Faisal in the suit by the 9/11 families. The families contend that al Faisal has legal responsibility for the 9/11 attacks.

Even though she had no previous training nor experience in finance, Gorelick was appointed Vice Chairman of Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) from 1997 to 2003. She served alongside former Clinton Administration official Franklin Raines. During that period, Fannie Mae developed a $10 billion accounting scandal.

On March 25, 2002, Business Week interviewed Gorelick about the health of Fannie Mae. Gorelick is quoted as saying, “We believe we are managed safely. We are very pleased that Moody’s gave us an A-minus in the area of bank financial strength – without a reference to the government in any way. Fannie Mae is among the handful of top-quality institutions.” One year later, Government Regulators “accused Fannie Mae of improper accounting to the tune of $9 billion in unrecorded losses”.

In an additional scandal concerning falsified financial transactions that helped the company meet earnings targets for 1998, a “manipulation” that triggered multimillion-dollar bonuses for top executives, Gorelick received $779,625.

Investigation by the OFHEO detailed in their official report on the accounting scandal in 2006 on page 66 that from 1998 to 2002 Gorelick received a total of $26,466,834.00 in income.

The Russia We Lost

Tear Drop "A Gift From the People of Russia to the USA"

Tear Drop “A Gift From the People of Russia to the USA”

Folks, the US Media have been spreading lies and falsehoods in the form of propaganda about the Russians; specifically regarding Ukraine. It is very disappointing so many otherwise intelligent Americans have yet again swallowed this same line of BS. Haven’t we learned anything from all the other wars we have started based on officially promulgated propaganda? Well, the Russians are tired of it. Our proxy forces in Ukraine have slaughtered countless innocent men, women and children with impunity all the while blaming Russia. Below you will find some fresh Russian propaganda aimed back at the USA. Enjoy if you can stomach to watch it. The visceral anger and hatred coming from Russia who once wanted to emulate the American success story is now thick as blood and is of our own creation.
