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.”

RAND Corporation on Ukraine

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.

1) VIDEO: The Trilateral Commission and Technocracy

Published on Nov 5, 2013

Founded in 1973 by David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski, the Trilateral Commission embarked on a New International Economic Order based on Technocracy. Brzezinski called this the “Technetronic Era” in his 1970 book, Between Two Ages. History now reveals the original Trilateral strategy and the means by which they have carried it out.

3) VIDEO: Google “Bill Clinton rape” by James Corbett
Bill Clinton, exactly like Bill Cosby, is a multiply-accused rapist with allegations stretching back decades. And exactly like Cosby, Clinton has settled a sexual harassment lawsuit out of court. But unlike Cosby, Clinton continues to enjoy the adoration of the public and the benefits of his personal fortune. Why? Because we haven’t made it an issue yet. Let’s start: Google “Bill Clinton rape.”

4) ARTICLE: A Family Business of Perpetual War
Victoria Nuland and Robert Kagan have a great mom-and-pop business going. From the State Department, she generates wars and – from op-ed pages – he demands Congress buy more weapons. There’s a pay-off, too, as grateful military contractors kick in money to think tanks where other Kagans work, writes Robert Parry.

5) ARTICLE: The Rise of Russia and the ‘End of the World’
Great little history lesson. I’d like to see more Quigley in there but it is a good summary none the less and gives a peek into the history that is NOT taught in US Public Schools. For example: “As revealed by Antony Sutton, the extent of Western influence and control inside Soviet Russia is exemplified by the fact that, during the Vietnam war, the military vehicles being used by the North Vietnamese military to fight American soldiers were produced in a Soviet factory, the Kama River Truck Plant, owned by the US Ford corporation.”

6) VIDEO: America’s Surveillance State part 1 (The Surveillance Machine)

Published on Oct 22, 2014

We live in the United States of Surveillance–with cameras increasingly positioned on street corners and with much more invisible spying online and on the phone. Anyone who is paying attention knows that privacy could be out the window. All of this is not happening by accident -well funded powerful agencies and companies are engaged in the business of keeping tabs on what we do, what we say, and what we think.

To many in the world, today, the face of America also has A BIG NOSE for sniffing and sifting mountains of data—phone calls, emails and texts. And with many mouths silenced by paranoia to keep what they decide is secret, secret. America has become a Surveillance-Industrial State where everyone’s business has become its business, and where one huge US intelligence Agency has been given the sanction and unlimited amounts of money to spy on the whole world.

Mass Surveillance is the focus of this new 6 part investigative documentary series examining who is watching whom and why.

PNAC’s “New Pearl Harbor”

David Brown Pic SnapShotPNAC was established in 1997.  Section 5, (published a year before 9/11) describes the need for a “New Pearl Harbor” (see below). An abundance of evidence shows that the attacks on 9/11 were an inside job committed by criminal elements within the U.S. Federal Government. On 9/11, they got their “New Pearl Harbor”.

The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) was an American think tank based in Washington, D.C. established in 1997 as a non-profit educational organization founded by William Kristol and Robert Kagan.

“New Pearl Harbor”

September, 2000: Section V of Rebuilding America’s Defenses, entitled “Creating Tomorrow’s Dominant Force”, includes the sentence: “Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event––like a new Pearl Harbor”

Why the US/NATO are in Ukraine today: The Origins of the Current Neo-Conservative Revolution in US Strategic Thinking, published in the German Law Journal, cited Jochen Bölsche’s view that the goal of the PNAC was world dominance or global hegemony by the United States. According to Bölsche, Rebuilding America’s Defenses was developed by Rumsfeld, Cheney, Wolfowitz and Libby, and is devoted to matters of ‘maintaining US pre-eminence, thwarting rival powers and shaping the global security system according to US interests.

BTW, you can read more about why we are in Ukraine in The Grand Chessboard by Zbigniew Brzezinski which was also conveniently published  in 1997 the same year PNAC was established.

Interesting to note that 9/11 wasn’t the first time the US Government considered using airplanes in a False Flag attack on the United States.  From Washingtonsblog article on  42 ADMITTED False Flag Attacks:

“As admitted by the U.S. government, recently declassified documents show that in 1962, the American Joint Chiefs of Staff signed off on a plan to blow up AMERICAN airplanes (using an elaborate plan involving the switching of airplanes), and also to commit terrorist acts on American soil, and then to blame it on the Cubans in order to justify an invasion of Cuba. See the following ABC news report; the official documents; and watch this interview with the former Washington Investigative Producer for ABC’s World News Tonight with Peter Jennings.”

“Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts.” – Richard Feynman

Thanks to Kristie Bruce for this one…

“Most people prefer to believe that their leaders are just and fair, even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which he lives is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one’s self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all.”

‘The technological era involves the gradual transition to a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain uptodate and complete files containing even the most personal information about each and every one in the population’.

Operation Gladio Basics

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

Started as aDavid Brown Pic SnapShot left behind strategy after WWII to counter a potential Warsaw Pact invasion of Europe, Operation Gladio  quickly morphed into a “strategy of tension” used by NATO to shape public opinion with false flag operations employing rightwing terrorists; first in the 1969 Piazza Fontana bombings  killing 17 people and wounding 88.  Gladio was so successful in shaping public opinion after the Piazza Fontana bombings in Italy that NATO and the CIA continued Gladio, improving and modifying to include regime change via a putsch.  This is Gladio A.  Later, in Turkey, Islamist terrorist were used as proxies for the first time in what became known as Gladio B.  Gladio B employed Al-Qaeda, then ISIS to perform Gladio operations. However, in the case of Ukraine, A & B were mixed slightly with the use primarily of neo-Nazis (A) in Kiev and a small smattering of Islamists (B) further east.  During the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, much of the more technical aspects of Gladio was likely outsourced to private military companies (PMCs).  According to Kelley Vlahos’ article on ‘A Blackwater World Order’: “From 1999 to 2008, at the peak of the wars, Pentagon spending on outsourcing alone increased from $165 billion to $466 billion a year.”  It is important to note that many of these operations –as in the case of Ukraine– start with Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) which are in reality CIA fronts or cutout organizations which the target countries naively accept as a positive influence or assistance.  These operations are guided by the geopolitical goals outlined in the Wolfowitz Doctrine and the Grand Chessboard by Zbigniew Brzezinski with input and coordination from the CFR, The Royal Institute of International Affairs and GCHQ and no doubt the HIGHLANDS forum/group.  All of these organizations support the larger financial interests which control the FSB (Financial Stability Board), the BIS (Bank for International Settlements)  and Central Banks.  The origins of this control structure and their tactics can be found in Carroll Quigley’s ‘Anglo-American Establishment’ and ‘Tragedy and Hope’ among other historical, investigative books.
