Chris Hedges: Julian Assange's Father Speaks Out

 

Europa Vernietigt Zichzelf (7)

Wob-documenten laten zien dat beschuldigingen van minister Kajsa Ollongren over stelselmatige beïnvloedingspraktijken van Rusland op social media ongefundeerd zijn.

https://www.blckbx.tv/livestreams/blckbx-today-2022-11-07?fbclid=IwAR1IHecN17QCNTcoY_VnW4cdgmp0q0k9uyizTiMS8_zhDbC4-IxG1KS4KKc 



Waarom zou de huidige minister van Defensie hebben getracht de sociale media en Rusland te beschuldigen van kwalijke ‘praktijken’? Haar eigen ‘stelselmatige beïnvloedingspraktijken’ gaan intussen ongestoord door nu, volgens haar D’66 collega, minister Sigrid Kaag van Financiën, Nederland ‘de facto in oorlogstijd leeft.’ Oorlog met de kernmogendheid de Russische Federatie omdat de NAVO, onder aanvoering van Washington, dit beslist heeft, zonder dat de parlementen van de aangesloten lidstaten hierover democratisch hebben beslist. Zoals bekend is ‘oorlog de voortzetting van de politiek met andere middelen,’ aldus het adagium van de Pruisische generaal Von Clausewitz. En omdat de invloed van het Oosten, volgens de voorzitter van de niet democratisch gekozen Europese Commissie, de Duitse Ursula von der Leyen, ‘wereldwijd moet worden bestreden,’ staan de VS en Europa tegenover de toenemende macht van Azië. De inzet van deze machtsstrijd is de poging om de beheersing van de grondstoffen en markten elders in westerse handen te houden. De oorlog in Oekraïne is daarbij niet meer dan een eerste stap op weg naar een serie gewapennde conflicten van het Westen tegen Rusland met al zijn grondstoffen en China dat steeds meer markten in handen krijgt. Vandaar dat de machtigste vrouw van Europa, Von der Leyen, stelt dat de ‘oorlog in Oekraïne niet alleen een Europese Oorlog [is], maar een oorlog over de toekomst van de hele mensheid.’ Een toekomst die bepaald moet worden door de elite van het neoliberale westerse kapitalisme, net zoals dit al vijf eeuwen lang het geval is sinds Columbus voet aan wal zette op het Amerikaanse continent.  Daarom ‘kan,’ volgens de Europese Commissie: ‘de horizon van Europa alleen de gehele wereld omvatten.’

Eén van de meest invloedrijke westerse geopolitieke adviseurs is nog steeds de inmiddels overleden Pools-Amerikaanse grijze eminentie onder de Amerikaanse geostrategen Zbigniew Brzeziński, die in zijn boek The Grand Chessboard. American Primacy And Its Geostrategisch Imperatives (1997) als dogma verkondigde dat 


Oekraine,’ als ‘nieuwe en belangrijke ruimte op het Euraziatisch schaakbord een geopolitieke spil is omdat juist zijn bestaan als een onafhankelijk land zal helpen om Rusland te transformeren. Zonder Oekraïne houdt Rusland op een Euraziatisch rijk te zijn.’


Brzezinski besefte dat als de VS de alleenheerschappij in de wereld wilde veroveren de politieke- en militaire macht in Washington én de financiële macht op Wall Street niets anders kunnen doen dan de groeiende invloed van het grondstoffenrijke Rusland en de financieel- en productieve macht van China aan banden te leggen. Of zoals de voorzitter van de Europese Commissie stelde: ‘De zogeheten onbeperkte samenwerking die door Vladimir Poetin en Xi Jinping is afgekondigd is eveneens een duidelijke bedreiging van de naoorlogse orde,’ waarin het Westen voor een aanzienlijk deel de greep op de grondstoffen en markten bezat. Nu dit niet langer meer het geval is ‘moeten [wij] deze wereldwijde uitdaging een halt toeroepen' en 'moeten [wij] het vertrouwen in onze wereldwijde doelen herstellen,’ aldus Ursula von der Leyen. Haar Spaanse collega, de 75-jarige sociaal-democraat Josep Borrell, Hoge Vertegenwoordiger voor buitenlands beleid en veiligheid, en vicevoorzitter van de Europese Commissie (commissaris voor een sterker Europa in de wereld), onderstreepte nog eens de urgentie van het verlies aan westerse macht toen hij op 13 oktober 2022 op zijn beurt tegenover aankomende diplomaten uiteenzette dat de Europese ‘prosperity was based on China and Russia — energy and market,’  daarbij doelend op goedkope energie, lage lonen, goedkope producten en een gigantische markt, waardoor de inkomens in het Westen decennialang bevroren konden worden, en het neoliberalisme de kloof tussen arm en rijk, nu ook in het Westen, bleef toenemen. 



Borrell van de Europese Commissie: 'Europe is a garden... The rest of the world... is a jungle, and the jungle could invade the garden.'


Onder de kop ‘World at dangerous crossroads, only two paths forward: anti-imperialist socialism or fascist barbarism’ waarschuwde de Amerikaanse onderzoeksjournalist Ben Norton in november 2022  dat: 


The US-led imperialist world system is in deep crisis, so it wages a new cold war to prevent multipolarity, while lurching toward fascism. The left must offer a true alternative path that opposes both the far right and the liberal pro-NATO chauvinists,


en dat:


we’re in a moment in which it is widely recognized throughout the imperial core that there is a fundamental crisis within the capitalist world system, that bourgeois liberal democracy is fundamentally in crisis and significant decline.


We see living standards plummeting in the United States, for instance. We have seen multiple generations now have lower life expectancies than their parents.


We see that, especially with the disaster of Covid, in which more than 1 million people died in the United States alone, that life expectancy decreased by several years, especially for marginalized and oppressed communities, Black Americans, Latinos, indigenous nations.


And of course we see in Europe a significant crisis. We see entire economies are being threatened with recession. We see industries in Germany are going to go bankrupt because of the economically suicidal policies in which Europe is trying to break off all of its economic relations and energy trade with Russia, basically in the span of a few months, and of course this is a policy that is largely being pushed by US imperialism.


In this moment of extreme crisis, there are two responses: socialism or barbarism. This is the exact crisis, the exact kind of analysis, that Rosa Luxembourg discussed 100 years ago. The alternative routes are socialism, or more barbarism.


And I think at this moment unfortunately, the reality, especially in Europe, is that barbarism — that is fascism — is significantly on the rise.

Hoewel ook een groot deel van de Amerikaanse intelligentsia en de Amerikaanse middenklasse beseft dat er een eind is gekomen aan de ‘American Century’ blijft het Amerikaanse militair-industrieel complex en de politieke elite rotsvast geloven in wat Brzezinski ‘de superioriteit’ van de VS betitelt, net zoals de nazi-elite lang bleef geloven in de superioriteit van het ‘Herrenvolk.’ Zeven jaar geleden, op zondag 6 december 2015, schreef ik  in verband met de afnemende macht van het Westen:


De mensheid leeft op een gevaarlijk breukvlak. De meeste westerlingen voelen intuïtief de op handen zijnde ingrijpende verandering aan, maar betrekkelijk weinigen zijn in staat dit helder onder woorden te brengen. De Britse historicus Peter Frankopan, Director of the Oxford Centre for Byzantine Research and Senior Research Fellow at Worcester College, is één van hen. In zijn 636 pagina's tellende studie The Silk Roads. A New History of the World (2015) komt hij tot de conclusie dat


In many ways, the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries have represented something of a disaster for the United States and Europe as they have played out their doomed struggle to retain their position in the vital territories that link east with west. What has been striking throughout the events of recent decades is the west’s lack of perspective about global history – about the bigger picture, the wider themes and the larger patterns playing out in the region. In the minds of policy planners, politicians, diplomats and generals, the problems of Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq seemed distinct, separate and only loosely linked to each other.

And yet taking a step back provides valuable perspective as well as remarkable insight, enabling us to see a broad region that is in turmoil. In Turkey, a battle is raging for the soul of the country, with internet providers and social media being shut down on a whim by a government divided about where the future lies. The dilemma is replicated in Ukraine, where different national visions have torn the country apart. Syria too is going through a traumatic experience of profound change, as forces of conservatism and liberalism battle each other at huge cost. The Caucasus has been through a period of transition too, with multiple issues of identity and nationalism bubbling up, most notably in Chechnya and Georgia. Then of course, there is the region further east, where the ‘Tulip Revolution’ in Kyrgyzstan in 2005 was the prelude to a long period of political instability, and Xinjiang in western China where the Uighur population have become increasingly unsettled and hostile, with terrorist attacks now such a threat that the authorities have decreed that growing a long beard is a mark of suspicious intentions, and have begun a formal programme, known as Project Beauty, to prevent women from wearing the veil.


There is more going on, then, than the clumsy interventions of the West in Iraq and Afghanistan and the use of pressure in Ukraine, Iran and elsewhere. From east to west, the Silk Roads are rising up once more. It is easy to feel confused and disturbed by dislocation and violence in the Islamic world, by religious fundamentalism, by clashes between Russia and its neighbors or by China’s struggle with extremism in its western provinces. What we are witnessing, however, are the birthing pains of a region that once dominated the intellectual, cultural and economic landscape and which is now re- emerging. We are seeing the signs of the world’s centre of gravity shifting – back to where it lay for millennia.


There are obvious reasons why this is happening. Most important, of course, are the natural resources of this region. Monopolizing the resources of Persia, Mesopotamia and the Gulf was a priority during the First World War, and efforts to secure the greatest prize in history have dominated the attitudes of the western world to this region ever since. If anything, there is now even more to play for than there was when the scale of Knox D’Arcy’s finds first became apparent: the combined proved crude reserves under the Caspian Sea alone are nearly twice those of the entire United States. From Kurdistan, where newly discovered oil reservoirs such as the Taq Taq field, whose production has risen from 2,000 to 250,000 barrels per day since 2007 – worth hundreds of millions of dollars per month – to the huge Karachaganak reserve on the border between Kazakhstan and Russia which contains an estimated 42 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, as well as liquefied gas and crude oil, the countries of this region are groaning under its natural resources.



De Europese Commissie en de NAVO-generaals richten bereiden nu conflicgten voor in Centraal Azië. Von der Leyen: 'wij [moeten] onze bemoeienis in Centraal Azië vergroten. Die regio is de toegangspoort tussen Europa, Rusland en China… En zij verdienen al onze politieke en economische ondersteuning. Dus is de tijd aangebroken om onze economische betrekkingen in Centraal Azië uit te breiden.'



Peter Frankopan: Then there is the Donbas basin that straddles Ukraine’s eastern frontier with Russia, which has long been famed for coal deposits estimated to have extractable reserves of around 10 billion tons. This too is an area of rising significance because of further mineral wealth. Recent geology-based assessments by the US Geological Service have suggested the presence of 1.4 billion barrels of oil and 2.4 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, as well as considerable estimated volumes of natural gas liquids. Alongside this sit the natural gas supplies of Turkmenistan. With no less than 700 trillion cubic feet of natural gas estimated to be below the ground, the country controls the fourth largest supplies in the world. And then there are the mines of Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan that form part of the Tian Shan belt, second only to the Witwatersrand basin in South Africa for the size of its gold deposits. Or there are beryllium, dysprosium and other ‘rare earths’ found in Kazakhstan that are vital for the manufacture of mobile phones, laptops and rechargeable batteries, as well as the uranium and plutonium that are essential for nuclear energy – and nuclear warheads.


Even the earth itself is rich and valuable. Once, it was the horses of Central Asia that were a highly prized commodity, coveted in the imperial court in China and in the markets of Delhi, as famous to the chroniclers of Kiev as those of Constantinople and Beijing. Today, large parts of the grazing land of the steppes have been transformed to become the astonishingly productive grainfields of southern Russia and Ukraine: indeed, so fertile and sought after is the trademark chernozem (literally ‘dark earth’) that one NGO has found that close to a billion dollars’ worth of this soil is dug up and sold annually in Ukraine alone.


The impact of instability, unrest or war in this region is not just felt in the price of oil at petrol pumps across the world; it affects the price of the technology we use and even that of the bread we eat. In the summer of 2010, for example, weather conditions produced a poor harvest in Russia, with yields well below domestic demand. As soon as the likely deficit became clear, an immediate ban was placed on the international export of cereals, effective with ten days’ warning. The impact on global cereal prices was instant: they rose 15 per cent in just two days. Turmoil in Ukraine at the start of 2014 had a similar impact, forcing the price of wheat sharply upwards because of fears about its effect on agricultural production in the world’s third largest wheat exporter.


The cultivation of other crops in this part of the world follows similar principles. Once, Central Asia was famous for Babur’s orange trees and, later, for the tulips that were so highly prized in capital cities across western Europe in the seventeenth century that canal houses in Amsterdam were exchanged for single bulbs. Today it is the poppy that is fought over: its cultivation, above all in Afghanistan, underpins worldwide consumption patterns for heroin, and determines its price — and of course impacts the costs that result from treatment for drug addiction and rehabilitation care as well as the price for trying to police organized crime.


Hoewel de westerse massamedia elke dag weer talloze gebeurtenissen melden, blijft hun berichtgeving ééndimensionaal. De processen waarvan de mens getuige is, worden nauwelijks toegelicht, terwijl de context waarin de chaos van feiten zich voltrekt, door de 'vrije pers' wordt verzwegen. Er vindt momenteel een geopolitieke omslag plaats van historisch belang. Toch doen mijn collega's in de polder het voorkomen alsof het Westen met nog meer geweld de status quo zal kunnen handhaven. Hun voorstellingsvermogen reikt niet verder dan een infantiel manicheïsme, waarbij 'wij' vanzelfsprekend altijd de goeden zijn. Ondertussen waarschuwen westerse geopolitieke denkers voor de op handen zijnde ingrijpende veranderingen, en adviseren de elite hoe zij zich daartegen zou kunnen beschermen. Peter Frankopan's beschrijving sluit aan bij het betoog van Zbigniew Brzezinski in zijn boek The Grand Chessboard. American Primacy and its Geostrategic Imperatives (1997). Brzezinki was Nationaal Veiligheidsadviseur van president Jimmy Carter (1977-1981). 'Naast Henry Kissinger en Samuel Huntington wordt hij (Brzezinski.svh) gerekend tot de grijze eminentie onder de Amerikaanse geostrategen,' en is één van de belangrijkste adviseurs van president Obama. Voordat ik enkele fragmenten uit deze geopolitieke studie citeer geef ik allereerste de beschrijving van The Grand Chessboard door de Amerikaanse statisticus Chris Ernesto, 'co-founder of St. Pete for Peace, an antiwar organization in St. Petersburg, Florida. Mr. Ernesto also created and manages OccupyArrests.com and USinAfrica.com.' Ernesto schreef het volgende:


The Eurasian Chessboard: Brzezinski Mapped Out 'The Battle for Ukraine' in 1997


It’s all about maintaining the US position as the world’s sole superpower.  Why would the United States run the risk of siding with anti-Semitic, neo-Nazis in Ukraine?


One of the keys may be found by looking back at Zbigniew Brzezinski’s 1997 book, The Grand Chessboard in which he wrote, 'Ukraine, a new and important space on the Eurasian chessboard, is a geopolitical pivot because its very existence as an independent country helps to transform Russia. Without Ukraine, Russia ceases to be a Eurasian empire.'


'However, if Moscow regains control over Ukraine, with its 52 million people and major resources as well as access to the Black Sea, Russia automatically again regains the wherewithal to become a powerful imperial state, spanning Europe and Asia.'


The former national security advisor to Jimmy Carter from 1977 to 1981 and top foreign policy advisor to Barack Obama, Brzezinski wrote that US policy should be 'unapologetic' in perpetuating 'America’s own dominant position for at least a generation and preferably longer still.'


Brzezinski delved into the importance of little known Ukraine by explaining in his 1997 book, 'Geopolitical pivots are the states whose importance is derived not from their power and motivation but rather from their sensitive location… which in some cases gives them a special role in either defining access to important areas or in denying resources to a significant player.'


'Ukraine, Azerbaijan, South Korea, Turkey and Iran play the role of critically important geopolitical pivots,' he wrote in The Grand Chessboard, a book viewed by many as a blueprint for US world domination.


Brzezinski wrote that Eurasia is 'the chessboard on which the struggle for global primacy continues to be played,' and that 'it is imperative that no Eurasian challenger emerges, capable of dominating Eurasia and thus also of challenging America.'


Understanding Brzezinski’s long-term view of Ukraine makes it easier to comprehend why the US has given $5 billion to Ukraine since 1991, and why today it is hyper-concerned about having Ukraine remain in its sphere of influence.


It may also help explain why in the past year the US and many of its media outlets have feverishly demonized Vladimir Putin.


By prominently highlighting the mistreatment of activist group Pussy Riot, incessantly condemning Russia’s regressive position on gay rights, and excessively focusing on substandard accommodations at the Sochi Olympic Games, the Obama administration has cleverly distracted the public from delving into US support of the ultra-nationalist, neo-Nazi factions of the Ukrainian opposition, and has made it palatable for Americans to accept the US narrative on Ukraine.


Interestingly enough, it was Brzezinski who first compared Putin to Hitler in a March 3 Washington Post Editorial. Hillary Clinton followed-up the next day with her comments comparing the two, followed by John McCain and Marco Rubio who on March 5 agreed with Clinton’s comments comparing Putin and Hitler. Apparently Brzezinski still continues to influence US political speak.


In his book, Brzezinski contends that 'America stands supreme in the four decisive domains of global power: militarily… economically… technologically… and culturally.'


While this may have been accurate in 1997, it can be argued that today, other than militarily, the US no longer reigns supreme in these domains.


So late last year when Ukraine’s now-ousted president Viktor Yanukovych surprisingly canceled plans for Ukrainian integration into the European Union in favor of stronger ties with Russia, the US may have viewed Ukraine as slipping even further out of its reach.


At that point, with the pieces already in place, the US moved to support the ousting of Yanukovych, as evidenced by the leaked phone conversation between US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt. When peaceful protests were not effective in unseating Yanukovych, the violence of the ultra-nationalist Svoboda party and Right Sector was embraced, if not supported by the west.


In today’s Ukraine, the US runs the risk of being affiliated with anti-Semitic neo-Nazis, a prospect it probably feels can be controlled via a friendly western media. But even if the risk is high, the US likely views it as necessary given the geopolitical importance of Ukraine, as Brzezinski mapped out in 1997.

http://original.antiwar.com/Chris_Ernesto/2014/03/14/brzezinski-mapped-out-the-battle-for-ukraine-in-1997/ 

Over het 'Oppergezag' van de VS stelde Brzezinski in The Grand Chessboard met betrekking tot Rusland en China: 


Lacking the ability to project forces over long distances inn order to impose their political will ands being technologically much more backward than America, they do not have the means to exercise — nor soon attain — sustained political clout (macht. svh) worldwide.


In brief, America stands supreme in the four decisive domains of global power: militarily, it has an unmatched global reach; economically, it remains the main locomotive of global growth, even if challenged in some aspects by Japan and Germany (neither of which enjoys the other attributes of global might); technologically, it retains the overall lead in the cutting-edge areas of innovation; and culturally, despite some crassness (grofheid. svh), it enjoys an appeal that is unrivaled, especially among the world's youth — all of which gives the United States a political clout that no other state comes close to matching. It is the combination of all four that makes America the only comprehensive global superpower.


Om te voorkomen dat aan 'de macht' van de 'global superpower' getwijfeld zal worden, heeft de elite in Washington en op Wall Street haar militair-industrieel complex achter de hand, en beschikt wereldwijd over meer dan 700 militaire bases.  September 2000 concludeerde de door Cheney, Rumsfeld en Wolfowitz opgerichte denktank 'Project voor de Nieuwe Amerikaanse Eeuw' (PNAC) dat 'hoewel het onopgeloste conflict met Irak een onmiddellijke rechtvaardiging verschaft, overstijgt de noodzaak van een aanzienlijke Amerikaanse militaire aanwezigheid in de Golf het vraagstuk van het regime van Saddam Hoessein.' Zoals uit deze woorden blijkt ging het niet in de eerste plaats om Irak. In feite draaide het om Saoedi Arabië, de grootste producent binnen OPEC, die de olieprijs bepaalt. In 2003 schreef Michael Renner, olie-expert van het in Washington gevestigde World Watch Institute


De heerschappij over de Iraakse olie zal de Verenigde Staten in staat stellen de Saoedische invloed op de oliepolitiek te verminderen en Washington een enorme macht over de wereld oliemarkt geven.


Zodra de Iraakse olie-industrie op volle toeren draaide zou 'Saoedi Arabië niet langer meer de dominante producent zijn, die eigenhandig de oliemarkt kan beïnvloeden… Het openen van de Iraakse oliekraan zal de wereld overspoelen en prijzen aanzienlijk omlaag drijven.'


Het PNAC formuleerde de Amerikaanse doeleinden even openhartig als vier jaar eerder Brzezinski had gedaan, de auteurs stelden dat hun rapport een 'blauwdruk' was


voor het behoud van de Amerikaanse wereldwijde superioriteit, om de opkomst van een grote machtsrivaal (inclusief Europa. svh) uit te sluiten, en om de internationale veiligheidsorde te laten sporen met Amerikaanse principes en belangen.


De Amerikaanse strijdkrachten in het buitenland worden beschreven als 'de cavalerie van het nieuwe Amerikaanse grensgebied.' Het rapport bekrachtigde een eerder beleidsdocument waarin gesteld werd dat de Verenigde Staten 


moderne industriële naties moet ontmoedigen om onze leiderschap op de proef te stellen of om zelfs ook maar te streven naar een grotere regionale of wereldwijde rol.


Bovendien werd verwezen naar 


nieuwe aanvalsmethoden — elektronisch… biologisch — zullen steeds meer beschikbaar zijn, de strijd zal zich naar alle waarschijnlijkheid in een nieuwe dimensie plaatsvinden, in de ruimte, cyberspace, en misschien in de wereld van de microben… geavanceerde vormen van biologische oorlogsvoering.


Het rapport was geschreven voor Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz en Lewis Libby, die drie maanden later sleutelposities in de nieuwe Amerikaanse regering bekleedden. Cheney werd vice-president, Rumsfeld minister van Defensie, Wolfowitz plaatsvervangend minister van Defensie en Libby de chef-staf van Cheney. Om deze wereldwijde militaire strategie bij het grote publiek acceptabel te maken zou: 


een of andere catastrofale en als katalysator werkende gebeurtenis — zoals een nieuwe Pearl Harbor' 


noodzakelijk zijn, aldus de opstellers van 'Rebuilding America's Defenses: Strategies, Forces, and Resources For a New Century,' exact een jaar vóór de aanslagen van 11 september 2001. Na als het ware op hun wenken te zijn bediend, en terwijl de Twin Towers nog nabrandden vroeg, volgens de New Yorker van april 2002, Condoleezza Rice, de Nationale Veiligheidsadviseur van president Bush, tijdens een spoedvergadering van de Nationale Veiligheidsraad aan de aanwezigen om na te denken over 'hoe men deze mogelijkheden kan uitbuiten,' daarbij verwijzend naar de situatie van '1945 tot 1947,' het begin van de eerste Koude Oorlog. Intussen had een dag na de aanslagen minister Rumsfeld — zonder te beschikken over ook maar één enkel bewijs van wie de daders waren — tijdens een kabinetsvergadering al geëist dat Irak 'een hoofddoel van de eerste ronde in de oorlog tegen terrorisme' zou zijn, aldus de journalist Bob Woodward van de Washington Post die een boek schreef over de eerste 100 dagen na 11 september, vol vertrouwelijke informatie die hij van hoog geplaatste autoriteiten had gekregen. Zes dagen na de terroristische aanslagen, op 17 september 2001, ondertekende president Bush een tweeëneenhalf pagina's tellend document, voorzien van de stempel 'TOP SECRET,' waarbij het Pentagon opdracht kreeg om militaire operaties voor te bereiden voor een invasie van Irak. Voor het eerst in het nieuwe millennium waren de schaakstukken in stelling gebracht. Het grote spel 'met als inzet de heerschappij over de wereld' kon beginnen. Het spreekt voor zich dat de commerciële massamedia daarbij moesten worden gemobiliseerd om dit in het geheim ontwikkelde draaiboek bij het grote publiek acceptabel te maken, alles geheel volgens de richtlijnen die de invloedrijkste Amerikaanse media-adviseur van de elite, Walter Lippmann, in 1922 had opgesteld:


public opinions must be organized for the press if they are to be sound, not by the press... Without some form of censorship, propaganda in the strict sense of the word is impossible. In order to conduct propaganda there must be some barrier between the public and the event. Access to the real environment must be limited before anyone can create a pseudo-environment that he thinks is wise or desirable


Om ervoor te zorgen dat na de ineenstorting van de Sovjet Unie de VS 'the only comprehensive global superpower' zou worden, werd de NAVO niet ontbonden, maar juist oostwaarts uitgebreid. Brzezinski gebruikt daarvoor in The Grand Chessboard de volgende logica:


It follows that a wider Europe and an enlarged NATO will serve well both the short-term and the longer-term goals of U.S. policy. A larger Europe will expand the range of American influence — and, through the admission of new Central European members, also increase in the European councils the number of states with a pro-American proclivity (voorkeur. svh) — without simultaneously creating a Europe politically so integrated that it could soon challenge the United States on geopolitical matters of hight importance to America elsewhere, particularly in the Middle East. A politically defined Europe is also essential to the progressive assimilation of Russia into a system of global cooperation.


Dit uitgangspunt van de Amerikaanse buitenlandse politiek is belangrijk te weten op het moment dat men leest dat, volgens opiniemakers van de polderpers, de VS als 'ordewaker en politieagent' nog steeds 'de agenda van de wereldpolitiek' weet te 'bepalen,' of dat 'het Westen zich [zal] moeten aanpassen' maar dan 'nog altijd bij voorkeur onder Amerikaanse leiding, als het een Democraat is,' in dit geval 'Hillary' die werd geportretteerd als de 'ideale kandidaat' voor het Amerikaanse presidentschap, of wanneer ander gecorrumpeerde journalisten als Hubert Smeets (NRC) en Paul Brill (Volkskrant) na terugkeer van een 'studiereis,' georganiseerd door de Atlantische Commissie, de propaganda arm van de NAVO, weer eens 'Poetin' afschilderen als de grote bedreiging van Europa. Maar in werkelijkheid schuilt er een veel groter gevaar in de pro-NAVO koers die Europa voert, zoals men kan opmaken uit de woorden van Brzezinski:


Admittedly, America cannot on its own generate a more united Europe — that is up to the Europeans, especially the French and the Germans — but America can obstruct the emergence of a more united Europe. And that could prove calamitous for the stability in Eurasia and thus also for America's own interests. Indeed, unless Europe becomes more united, it is likely to become more disunited again. Accordingly, as stated earlier, it is vital that America work closely with both France and Germany in seeking a Europe that is politically viable, a Europe that remains linked to the United States, and a Europe that widens the scope of the cooperative democratic international system. Making a choice between France and Germany is not the issue. With our either France or Germany, there will be no Europe, and without Europe there will be no trans-Eurasian system.

Kortom, de Europese Unie, het Europa van 'Geen Jorwert zonder Brussel,' mag alleen bestaan zolang het 'remains linked to the United States,' en zolang het deelneemt aan het met geweld verspreiden van het neoliberale 'international system,' dat doorgaat voor 'democratic,' maar in werkelijkheid weinig tot niets met democratie heeft te maken, aangezien de vitale besluiten door een kleine elite worden genomen. Kortom, de beleidsbepalers in Washington en op Wall Street, menen, in de woorden van Brzezinski, dat ’It follows that a wider Europe and an enlarged NATO will serve well both the short-term and the longer-term goals of U.S. policy,' en op die manier slaat de elite in Washington en op Wall Street twee vliegen in één klap, te weten: 


  1. A larger Europe will expand the range of American influence — and, through the admission of new Central European members, also increase in the European councils the number of states with a pro-American proclivity (voorkeur. svh)  
  2. without simultaneously creating a Europe politically so integrated that it could soon challenge the United States on geopolitical matters of hight importance to America elsewhere, particularly in the Middle East.


Wil Europa daarentegen een eigen politieke koers volgen dan wordt dit door de VS  gesaboteerd. Zo verklaarde de neoconservatieve Victoria Nuland, door president Obama benoemd tot 'Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs at the United States Department of State,' tijdens een afgeluisterd telefoongesprek over de door de VS verordonneerde koers van Kiev: 'Fuck the European Union.' Mevrouw Nuland is degene die achter de schermen de gewelddadige 'regime change' in Oekraïne orchestreerde, terwijl haar echtgenoot Robert Kagan, één van de vooraanstaande pleitbezorgers was van de illegale en desastreuze inval in Irak. Kagan is een door president Obama bewonderde neoconservatieve ideoloog, die één van de oprichters is geweest van het beruchte PNAC, en zo is de cirkel weer rond. Deze feiten werpen tevens een onthullend licht op de opmerking van de bestseller-auteur Geert Mak, voorafgaand aan de herverkiezing van Obama, dat ‘het beter is voor Nederland en de internationale gemeenschap dat Obama de verkiezingen wint.’

Dit is de context zoals die al zeven jaar geleden bekend was, maar die nog steeds door de polderpers angstvallig verzwegen wordt, om op die manier Rusland en nu ook China te kunnen demoniseren. Ondertussen hebben 'Wob-documenten laten zien dat beschuldigingen van minister Kajsa Ollongren over stelselmatige beïnvloedingspraktijken van Rusland op social media ongefundeerd zijn.' Tegelijkertijd is tevens bekend dat de mainstream-media de NAVO-propaganda gewillig blijft verspreiden, en dat wij vandaag de dag in een totalitaire technocratie leven. Meer daarover de volgende keer. 








Mike Lindell Shows Real Evidence of Election Fraud

 Crime Spikes: Mike Lindell Shows Real Evidence of Election Fraud

Mike Lindell and his group of researchers show massive spikes up and down in vote counts coming from many different races in the 2022 midterm elections. The spikes always favor the Democrat candidate. This evidence cannot be ignored.

Reporting live, using data from the Edison Report, the first spike we see is in the race between Warnock and Walker in Georgia. It has the familiar “F” shape that we saw in the 2020 Election:

In the Fetterman-Oz race, Fetterman had a backwards “F” from vote dumping, when he lost 100k+ votes from one moment to the next, which Mike says is impossible and he thinks it probably had to do them correcting the steal algorithm, because it was too blatant.

In the governor race between Mastriano and Shapiro in Pennsylvania, the same thing happened there, too. The algorithm was set too high and they auto-corrected it too abruptly so as to subtract 90,000 votes.

Here’s the spectacular vote stuffing and dumping in the Illinois Senate race between Tammy Duckworth (D) and Kathy Salvi (R), where the race was called for Duckworth two minutes after the polls closed:

The Gateway Pundit reported large batch injections into the Michigan Governors race last night (as seen in 2020), which gave the race to Gretchen Whitmer:

There are many, many more instances of questionable spikes presented that need to be shared widely and investigated!

In addition, the voting machines suffered massive problems across the country. In Mercer County, New Jersey, all the machines went down. There were mishaps in Harris County, TX, in Bell County, TX, in Chesterfield County, VA and and in Suffolk County, NY.

At least 20% of all the machines were not working throughout Maricopa County, Arizona. In Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, officials say that roughly 44 polling locations ran out of paper to print ballots.

It’s not a coincidence that the machines went down in the red precincts of Maricopa County to disrupt voters for Kari Lake and Blake Masters or that they went down in Suffolk County, the Red county where Lee Zeldin has represented New York’s 1st Congressional District since 2015 – and who just lost his bid for Governor to the hideous vaxx goblin, Kathy Hochul.

To add insult to injury, in late-breaking news last night, LA County dropped their case against Konnech CEO, Eugene Yu!

Fresh off her own election loss for Secretary of State of Ohio, Tore Maras said the way we’re going to win this battle is not by claiming that the elections were stolen but by challenging the machines on the basis that they violate our 4th and 1st Amendment rights.

She asks, who owns the optically-scanned data on your ballot, which is linked to your ID and which records your vote? Someone is collecting your voting data and no one knows who they’re selling it to.

She says the machines need to go, not just because they mine your data but because the data collected can be used to force you to submit to a third party’s wishes.

Potential employers may not hire you if you voted for a MAGA candidate, for example. Currently, in my State of North Carolina, your voting record is publicly available. I don’t think many states do this. I didn’t have a choice in having my voting record made public when I moved here.

She suggests that we all send FOIA requests to our Secretaries of State and ask them, who owns that optical scanning data? They are mining our private identifying information and how we vote without our consent and who, exactly collects and profits off the optical scanner data?

Why would Konnech be shipping such data to China?

The answer is to be able to penalize you when they bring in the digital currency and social credit score.

The military paid Konnech millions of dollars to do just that. Tore believes the data is being given or sold to General Jim Jones’ and John Brennan’s company, ClearForce, a tool which is sold to Human Resources departments across the country and which is being used to build-out the social credit system in the US.

In the film, ShadowGate, Tore explains how General Jones took the Shadownet software that had been developed to be used against the enemy during the War in Iraq and he turned it into the ClearForce technology that has now been turned against the US population.

She says General Jones resold and reinvented Shadownet, to create the “MagicWheel” program used in the DC courts, to make sure that they put together the most compromised juries in order for them to be able to throw cases.

Micromanaging this technology on a global scale would require integrating it with Artificial Intelligence. Imagine Artificial Intelligence autonomously operating the Shadownet and ClearForce!

All of this is part of the international push for autonomous law enforcement and to remove the human factor. Currently, several features of the Interpol program indicate that they are already using an iteration of Shadownet and ClearForce technology.

As Millie Weaver narrated in ShadowGate:

“This March 2017 United States Patent issued to Jim Jones III and ClearForce spells it out:

“Systems and methods for electronically monitoring humans to determine potential risk.” Several diagrams in this patent look identical to the dashboard layout of the Shadownet the patent mentions integration with US and international databases, local law enforcement and individual state databases, all fed into international justice and public safety networks. Full integration of all data including the Internet of Things is the objective.

“A March 2020 Atlantic Council policy primer, ‘AI, Society and Governance’ references the 2019 Interpol publication, stating, ‘The United Nations Inter-Regional Crime and Justice Research Institute and the International Criminal Police Organization are leading the conversation on autonomous patrol robots, tracking and tracing systems, forecasting tools predictive policing and more.’

“The next iteration of the Shadownet and ClearForce is ready to go. Integration with AI robots and the replacement of traditional law enforcement is just around the corner. Given that Leftist organizations managed by Momentum, which is behind the ‘Defund the Police’ movement and given that Momentum has been connected to IIA operations, the case can be made that Jones & Co are running the ‘Defund the Police’ influence operation, simply because they are in a position to benefit, by offering an alternative solution that is already in line with the Green New Deal agenda.

“We’ve already seen some of this rolled out, with the technocratic response to COVID19, with autonomous drones, contact tracing apps, nanotech vaccines and predictive modeling for social distancing and economic shutdowns.

“Furthermore, this technology is behind the push for police abolition, defunding law enforcement and replacing it with ‘Smart Justice’, given we have seen IIA Shadownet technology, implemented by the Socialist Democrats and the Sunrise Movement, who are using it to push for police abolition, this political movement is deeply connected to the UN who has partnered with Interpol to corral us into the Artificial Intelligence and Robotics for Law Enforcement direction.”

Tore says that to stop this New World Order, you have to stop feeding them information and that the privacy argument against the voting machines will blindside them.
