WHISTLEBLOWER OR “KAPO QUEEN,” AMERICAN CENSORSHIP IN HIGH GEAR

From Veteranstoday, August 20, 2010 posted by Gordon Duff · 3 Comments 

By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor
“I am in favor of the Zionist state.  I would gladly kill Arabs, even slaughter them.  I can’t allow Arab lovers to ruin the perfect life I lead.”….Eden Abergil
A “Kapo” was a Jew who served the Nazis, sometimes as administrators, but more often as thuggish camp police, even more brutal than the Nazi’s themselves.  Though over a million living in Israel claim to be “holocaust survivors,” in reality only a few thousand survived the camps, many of them “Kapos.”  To help understand the absurdity of these ”survivor” claims, we can examine another group from that era, American war veterans.   Of the 16 million Americans serving in uniform that survived World War II, there are nearly the same number of survivors as the holocaust though the total Jewish population of countries controlled by Nazi Germany, prior to the holocaust according to the Jewish Virtual Library was only 5, 811, 900.  With so many Nobel Prize winners, mathematics is no longer Israel’s strong suit.  Neither is truth.
Whether discussing how many Palestinians were expelled, “liquidated” or imprisoned or how many tens of thousands of rockets Hamas has rained on Tel Aviv, with so few casualties, Israeli credibility is at an all time low.  Eden Abergil has done as much as any Israeli citizen to bring that fact before the world, a young girl assigned to work as a Kapo in the Israeli “camp system.”  Is Abergil a victim, a humanitarian whistle-blower or a sociopathic Kapo torturer?
Oliver Lustig writes, in his Dictionary of the Camps:
“The Häftling (inmate)  who was wearing on the left arm a black band on which it was written –KAPO– in Gothic letters of immaculate whiteness, was a chief…he could strike, beat, kill anyHäftling who did not belong to the inner hierarchy of the camp…
Kapos were recruited from among sadists, from among the unscrupulous ones, who forgot they belonged to the human species, from among those who, faced with the alternative die or kill, preferred to kill. In order to prove their servility and to maintain their position as chiefs, they tried to surpass the SS-men in ferocity.  The Kapos kit, beat, killed out of sadism or envy, out of the desire to assert themselves as chiefs or out fear of losing their function, out of hate of man or out of the mere pleasure to trample underfoot and torment the fellow men.”
When CNN’s Paula Hancocks reported the story, as is so often the case, both sides of the story were Israel.  Hancock never asked why prisoners were blindfolded or about their fate.  Hancock never askedwhat the job of camp “Kapo,” how Eden Abergil and tens of thousands of other Israeli youths spend their national service, was like, the beatings, the humiliation and its obvious dehumanizing effect as was made clear by Abergil.
Was Eden Abergil a whistle-blower?
Was Abergil attempting to focus world attention on the 300,000 Palestinians who have “disappeared” over the past 60 years?  Was she exposing the Israeli “gulag” system that may be holding up to 100,000 Palestinians prisoner?  If this was her goal, CNN wasn’t having any part of it.  Not one question was asked about what her job was in the camps, how she felt about non-Jewish Israeli citizens.  That came out later.
Eden Abergil, a 24 year old Israeli who recently finished her national service in the IDF, posted photographs on Facebook of herself with Palestinian torture victims.  We have seen things like this before, of course, but last time it was Americans.  We don’t know how many photos we have or what acts they portray as CNN chose to show us only one, a depiction of Abergil mugging for the camera before a backdrop of blindfolded and “tie-wrapped” elderly Palestinian civilians.
When questioned by the Haaretz News Service in Israel, Abergail said:
I am in favor of the Zionist state.  I would gladly kill Arabs, even slaughter them.  I can’t allow Arab lovers to ruin the perfect life I lead.
Abergil told CNN that she has received numerous death threats, many from her neighbors in Israel and has requested police protection.  The question is, did Eden Abergil go on worldwide media proclaiming to be a murderous sociopath out of bad judgement or is this a clever attempt at depicting the IDF as torturers and war criminals?  Now we have hundreds of similar photos going up from dozens of former IDF “kapos.” 
Abergil’s photos are the first to come out of the camp system in Israel, known for its torture, summary executions, starvation and daily brutality.  Little is known or has been reported in the west about the 60 year program of ethnic cleansing or the nature of Israel’s apartheid state and system of racial and religious laws that openly discriminate against Christians and Muslims.
Comments by fellow Israeli’s made on Abergil’s Facebook page referred to photographs of  the “chunky” former IDF “Kapo Queen” taken with torture victims as “sexy.”  
Abergil has raised, not only the ire of fellow Israeli’s but military officials in Israel as well.  With Israel’s role in pushing America into a war with Iran coming under increasing attack and their role in falsifying intelligence leading to the disastrous 2003 invasion of Iraq by the United States and Britain, the legitimacy of the “Jewish only” Zionist state in Israel has never been under wider pressure around the world.
With Israeli terrorist and serial killer, Elias Abuelazam being pulled off a flight from Atlanta to Tel Aviv and the recent failure by Israel to address the killing of between 9 and 16 unarmed civilians on the Mavi Marmara, the theft of millions in personal items and the illegal detention of up to two dozen peace activists seized in international waters, Israel’s credibility, even while exercising “veto power” over unfavorable stories in the British and American press, is at an all time low.
In Britain, a website has been established, British Propaganda Corporation, not only spoofing the BBC, but highly critical of what is said to be virtual total Israeli control of all media outlets in Britain, including and especially the state run news service, the British Broadcasting Corporation.
Current population estimates put the number of displaced Palestinians at 6 million with those in temporary camps estimated by Israel at 400,000 and by other sources at between 700,000 and 980,000.  Each year, new Israeli condominium projects displace thousands more, adding to the figures given.  To this mix, we add nearly 1 million “guest workers” who, with their families, are also virtual refugees, “stateless persons” subject to expulsion at any time as with Palestinian citizens of Israel.
Managing this process, the destruction of tens of thousands of homes, a vast camp system, surveillance of not only Muslims in Palestine but the entire Jewish population as well, is a vast bureaucracy largely financed by the United States.  Young Jews, many of them Americans, serve in the IDF, some of them as part of this system.  Some of the daily tasks performed are not only inhumane and demeaning but, technically, criminal acts subject to punishment according to international convention.
Perhaps what we are told is right, all Muslims are extremists and must be cleansed from Israel in order to maintain the purity of the Jewish race, as touted in recent scientific studies quoted in the New York Times.
“The surveys provide rich data about genetic ancestry that is of great interest to historians. “I’m constantly impressed by the manner in which the geneticists keep moving ahead with new projects and illuminating what we know of history,” said Lawrence H. Schiffman, a professor of Judaic studies at New York University.
One of the surveys was conducted by Gil Atzmon of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Harry Ostrer of New York University and appears in the current American Journal of Human Genetics. The other, led by Doron M. Behar of the Rambam Health Care Campusin Haifa and Richard Villems of the University of Tartu in Estonia, is published in Thursday’s edition of Nature.”
The studies along with extensive and continual mathematical documentary proof of 6 million Jewish deaths during the holocaust are used as justification for Israel’s “junkyard dog” foreign policy, arms dealings with rogue states like Libya, South Africa and North Korea and their policies of ethnic cleansing.  Much of the impetus for “revisionist” history, those advocating a reassessment of the holocaust after declassified documents have brought sometraditionally accepted dogma into doubt, has been the desire to “disarm” Israels dependence on the holocaust to justify policies against the Palestinians that parallel many aspects of Germany’s persecution of the Jews under Hitler.
Thus, we may have Eden Abergil, not as a Zionist “nutcase” but exposing, perhaps unsuccessfully, what no media organization will speak of.  Those men on the bench, those prisoners, so many thousands arrested, detained, questioned, worse, and none ever released.
Where do they go?

The US is now matching Indian call center costs

I am undecided if this is a bad news or good, but it sound quite thirdworldization to me:



According to the Financial Times:
“High unemployment levels have driven down wages for some low-skilled outsourcing services in some parts of the US, particularly among the Hispanic population. At the same time, wages in India’s outsourcing sector have risen by 10 per cent this year and senior outsourcing managers based in the country command salaries above global averages.

“Pramod Bhasin, the chief executive of Genpact, said his company expected to treble its workforce in the US over the next two years, from about 1,500 employees now. ‘We need to be very aware [of what’s available] as people [in the US] are open to working at home and working at lower salaries than they were used to,’ said Mr Bhasin. ‘We can hire some seasoned executives with experience in the US for less money.’

“The narrowing of the traditional cost advantage is also spurring other Indian outsourcers to hire more staff outside India. Wipro, the Bangalore-based IT outsourcing company, started to recruit workers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa during the global economic downturn. Suresh Vaswani, joint chief executive of Wipro Technologies, forecasts that half of his company’s overseas workforce will be non-Indians in two years, from the current 39 per cent.”

Corruption takes 50 per cent of Russia’s GDP

(I wonder about the amount of corruption in the rest of the world)


Asianews 08/20/2010 
by Nina Achmatova

The situation is demonstrated by official data and testimonies. The secret services, the Interior Ministry, and the Narcotics Service are the most corrupt areas of government activity, but health care, school and university are not immune.

Moscow (AsiaNews) – A recent report ranks Russia’s most corrupt state institutions, with stats that show how much extra money (i.e. bribes) some government officials take home each month. Released on the website of Russia’s Association of Lawyers for Human Rights, “Corruption 2010” provides an up-to-date snapshot of the impact of kickbacks in every domain of Russia’s public and private life.
Based on official data and personal testimonies, the study shows that “The market of corruption represents 50 per cent of GDP”. In just a year since July 2009, the report looked at 6,500 cases of people who complained about having to pay up. It even came up with the prices for services rendered and the cost for getting a job in the police or a favourable sentence in the courts.
The lawyers’ association found that in education and health care corruption represents between 40 and 80 per cent of activities. For instance, it said that Russians know that decent medical care in a public hospital requires “additional fees” that are determined by bargaining with nurses. A university degree from a good university can cost US$ 500, whilst a single exam might cost as low as US$ 20, sources told AsiaNews
Russia’s security agencies, the so-called siloviki (силовики́), i.e. the top officials at the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (FSB), the Interior Ministry or the Federal Narcotics Control Service, are top of the class in the corruption department. Some of officials in these agencies can take home up to US$ 20,000 per month by providing “assistance” in unlawful activities. Just below them come prosecutors who can make an extra US$ 10,000 a month. Then there are traffic inspectors who can take home up to US$ 5,000 in extra salary and judges, who can get up to US$ 3,000.
But this is not all. All of these positions can be had for a price. Positions in government departments and the police can be bought. An assistant district prosecutor post can cost € 7,800 (US$ 10,000), whilst a position as an inspector in the traffic police can reach € 40,000 (US$ 50,000).
According to the InoPressa agency and French daily Le Monde, an average bribe doubled in value to 1,500 € (US$ 1,900) since the start of the year.
None of this is new. As far back as 2005, another study suggested that half of Russia’s GDP ended up in the pockets of corrupt officials.
Despite official Kremlin announcements that the government would take on corruption, the new study simply shows that things have not changed. This explains why Russia ranks 146th (out of 180 countries) on Transparency International’s Corruptions Perceptions Index (CPI).

The Secrets in Israel’s Archives


By Jonathan Cook
Antiwar

"[The] documents suggested that heavily armed Jewish forces had expelled and dispossessed hundreds of thousands of Palestinians before the Jewish state had even been declared and a single Arab soldier had entered Palestine [...] One document in particular, Plan Dalet, demonstrated the army’s intention to expel the Palestinians from their homeland. Its existence explains the ethnic cleansing of more than 80 percent of Palestinians in the war, followed by a military campaign to destroy hundreds of villages to ensure the refugees never returned."
History may be written by the victors, as Winston Churchill is said to have observed, but the opening up of archives can threaten a nation every bit as much as the unearthing of mass graves.
That danger explains a decision quietly taken last month by Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, to extend by an additional 20 years the country’s 50-year rule for the release of sensitive documents.
The new 70-year disclosure rule is the government’s response to Israeli journalists who have been seeking through Israel’s courts to gain access to documents that should already be declassified, especially those concerning the 1948 war, which established Israel, and the 1956 Suez crisis.
The state’s chief archivist says many of the documents "are not fit for public viewing" and raise doubts about Israel’s "adherence to international law," while the government warns that greater transparency will "damage foreign relations."

10 Credible Conspiracy Facts, Not Theories

From The Daily Bell Friday, August 20, 2010 – by  Staff Report

Since Obama's election, the constituent theories within the overarching narrative of the New World Order have increasingly made inroads into the mainstream national discourse. ... Joseph Farah's WorldNetDaily.com, for example, has grown its influence by peddling paranoia about the president's birth certificate and AmeriCorps' "domestic armies." Earlier this year, the John Birch Society, a group with a long history of hatching and promoting wild conspiracy theories (including the idea that President Eisenhower was a communist agent), co-sponsored the Conservative Political Action Conference, an annual powwow of leading conservatives and Republican Party figures. Speakers at this year's conference included such mainstream names as Washington Post columnist George Will, former GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and Republican House Minority Leader John Boehner. Here is a compilation of 10 of the most popular conspiracy theories currently circulating on the radical right and, increasingly, on points of the political spectrum much too close to the center for comfort." – AlterNet


Dominant Social Theme: The lunatics need to be reined in.


Free-Market Analysis: While popular, left-wing website AlterNet cannot be considered mainstream media per se, this article partakes of the modern Western (mostly US) tradition of debunking suspicions that people may have about their government. It is especially a US dominant social theme – that the "paranoid style" of US politics generates fantastical suspicions about the US fedgov's intentions. Various "right wing" nutcases are flagellated for not taking the US-based corporatocracy and military industrial complex at its word.
Never mind that the US government is a US$3 trillion-plus entity with world-spanning power and that entities so powerful and complex have their own logic and their own over-riding agenda. Never mind that the US has been almost constantly at war (somewhere in some fashion) for the past 100 years or longer. (Never mind, in fact, that the US now employs so many domestic and foreign intel operatives that it cannot keep track of them anymore.) In fact, when one looks into AlterNet at Wikipedia it becomes fairly clear that the money behind the group comes from the predictable power-elite pocketbook, including the Ford Foundation which never saw a socialist cause it couldn't endorse and fund. (Henry Ford has been rolling like a top for decades.) Perhaps AlterNet is a promotion, too?
Anyway, such an article is of obvious interest to the Daily Bell because it counteracts (with the calm voice of reason) suspicions that the powers-that-be are in any sense aimed at US citizens themselves. These sorts of articles are actually quite numerous on the 'Net, but this is a very good example of one. Here are the top ten list of conspiracy theories from AlterNet and our comments beneath.


1. Chemtrails: In the world of Patriot antigovernment paranoia, New World Order forces attempt to manipulate and control the unwitting population from every conceivable source and direction -- from the images on your television screen to the very water that comes out of your kitchen tap. In recent years, the New World Order has been meddling most nefariously from above, high among the clouds.
We're certainly not wedded to the idea that Western governments are deliberately spraying poisons into the air regularly or trying to manipulate the weather with a secret intel-op/ airforce program. On the other hand, we did a little digging and found the following reported by the UK Guardian, a mainstream, left-wing paper in Britain (one from which we occasionally excerpt articles) Here's the report, from an April 2002 article, "Millions were in germ war tests ... Much of Britain was exposed to bacteria sprayed in secret trials."
Here's how the article starts: "The Ministry of Defence turned large parts of the country into a giant laboratory to conduct a series of secret germ warfare tests on the public. A government report just released provides for the first time a comprehensive official history of Britain's biological weapons trials between 1940 and 1979. Many of these tests involved releasing potentially dangerous chemicals and micro-organisms over vast swaths of the population without the public being told."
It continues: "In most cases, the trials did not use biological weapons but alternatives which scientists believed would mimic germ warfare and which the MoD claimed were harmless. But families in certain areas of the country who have children with birth defects are demanding a public inquiry. One chapter of the report, 'The Fluorescent Particle Trials', reveals how between 1955 and 1963 planes flew from north-east England to the tip of Cornwall along the south and west coasts, dropping huge amounts of zinc cadmium sulphide on the population. The chemical drifted miles inland, its fluorescence allowing the spread to be monitored. In another trial using zinc cadmium sulphide, a generator was towed along a road near Frome in Somerset where it spewed the chemical for an hour."


2. Martial Law: If Patriot groups fear anything more than the water vapor in the sky, it is the imminent imposition of martial law. A longstanding and central plank of the Patriot catechism is the belief that one day – very soon! – federal forces, in league with the states, will suspend constitutional government and institute a police state. During the first few years after the 9/11 attacks, this fear was also discussed on the left. But what was a temporary concern there has long been an absolute certainty on the far right. Today, hundreds of Patriot groups around the country are actively preparing for the declaration of martial law, some of them by mapping wilderness areas, learning how to set booby traps, studying and practicing guerrilla warfare tactics, and setting up short-wave radio communications systems. The question is not if, but when, the New World Order will come crashing down.
Don't US presidents keep signing executive orders setting forth various states of emergencies and providing the fedgov with ever larger "emergency powers" as a result? Didn't George Bush manage to do away with habeas corpus? Generally there is plenty of reason to believe that the Federal government has at this point convinced itself that it could declare martial law in case of "emergency" of some sort, and attempt to make that declaration stick across the whole of the US.
Here's an excerpt from an October 2008 Infowars article on the subject: "Democratic Congressman: Representatives Were Threatened With Martial Law In America Over Bailout Bill ... Warns that a panic atmosphere is intentionally being nurtured to get bill passed ... A Democratic Congressman has warned that a panic atmosphere is being intentionally created in order to get the financial bailout billed passed, further stating that several members of Congress were told before Monday's vote that martial law will be instigated in America if the legislation fails. ... Congressman Brad Sherman of California's 27th congressional district told the House in a speech yesterday evening that he personally knew of several Congressional representatives who have said they were threatened with the prospect of all out martial law should they vote in opposition to the $700 billion bailout.
Sherman reported continued, "Many of us were told in private conversations that if we voted against this bill on Monday that the sky would fall, the market would drop two or three thousand points the first day, another couple of thousand the second day, and a few members were even told that there would be martial law in America if we voted no."


3. FEMA Concentration Camps: Following the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City by Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Domestic Terrorism held hearings on the Patriot/militia subculture that bred and nurtured the bombers. Throughout the hearings, a running theme expressed by Patriots was a fear that "urban gangs," directed by Washington and possibly acting in concert with U.N. and foreign troops, would sweep in from the coasts, confiscate their guns, and round them up. This home- invasion force would hold down the streets during the imposition of martial law, then send the members of Patriot militias to internment camps run by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which most Patriot groups consider to be "the executive arm of the coming police state."
We're not sure about FEMA camps, but the US government HAS been building various "camps." We went looking on the 'Net for information about such camps and found it at World Net Daily among other Internet sites. Now the AlterNet article cites World Net Daily as one of the conspiratorial websites that is responsible for spreading conspiratorial disinformation. But just calling a report conspiratorial doesn't make it so. The information itself must also be suspect, and in this case the reporting seems fairly solid.
Here's an excerpt from the beginning of the May 2007 article: "This way to the camps! ... Directive from Bush allows president extraordinary powers in national crisis ... Halliburton's former engineering and construction subsidiary has a contingency contract with the Department of Homeland Security to construct detention facilities in the event of a national emergency, according to WND columnist Jerome Corsi. As Corsi reported last week, President Bush recently signed a little-reported National Security and Homeland Security Directive granting extraordinary powers to the president in the event of a declared national emergency, apparently without congressional approval or oversight.
The article continues, "Houston-based KBR was awarded an initial $385 million contract in January 2006 for one year, with four one-year options extended into 2007. KBR held a previous emergency detention contract with ICE from 2000 to 2005. ICE spokeswoman Jamie Zuieback told Corsi the primary intent of the contract was to build temporary detention facilities that could be used in the event of a mass migration crisis, but she confirmed the facilities could be employed in national emergencies, including natural disasters."


4. Foreign Troops on U.S. Soil ... While "urban gangs" are considered a leading candidate to enforce a New World Order (NWO) lockdown, they are not the only threatening force clouding the Patriot mind. There is also a belief on the radical right that treasonous government officials are colluding with other governments to suppress Americans with the use of foreign troops. Patriots believe this foreign assistance will be necessary due to the patriotism of America's own troops. As explained on the Patriot website libertyforlife.com, many U.S. active military personnel and veterans would likely refuse orders to suppress the rights of their fellow citizens, and so "the US/NWO/UN government is importing foreign troops into the USA to do what US soldiers did to Iraq." Among the many Patriot groups dedicated to resisting this is the Oath Keepers, made up of veteran and active-duty U.S. military personnel.
What's interesting about this conspiracy theory is that the article itself provides its own debunking (counter argument) in the very next paragraph, as follows: "Whose troops, exactly, would be deployed here? Those of whichever allies the U.S. is partnering with at any given moment. For example, Patriot sites were atwitter with news that, in July 2009, FEMA organized a terrorist-response exercise in conjunction with troops from 14 allied countries, including Australia, Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom. After the 2009 exercise, the Web burst with YouTube clips attempting to alert people to the sinister presence of foreign troops."


5. 'Door-to-Door' Gun Confiscations: One of the defining features of Patriot/militia subculture is an obsession with firearms. Patriot groups stockpile them, train using them, and, perhaps most of all, worry about losing them. Any attempt to restrain their gun rights is viewed as the thin-edge-wedge of a New World Order crackdown. Patriots believe it inevitable that NWO forces in black masks and jackboots -- and possibly UN blue helmets -- will one day be sent door to door to take away their weapons by force. This fear is also stoked by mainstream figures within the conservative movement.
There was documented gun confiscation in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, so it seems to us that fears of gun confiscation are at least reasonable. But again we'll let the article itself debunk the particular theory; the article notes in the very next paragraph: "Wayne LaPierre, the president of the National Rifle Association, a major player in the Republican Party coalition, is the author of a book entitled, The Global War on Your Guns: Inside the UN Plan To Destroy the Bill of Rights. In 2006, Louisiana Republican Sen. David Vitter attached an amendment to a domestic-security spending bill that prohibited the confiscation of legally owned guns during an emergency. The measure passed by a vote of 84-16."


6. 9/11 as Government Plot ... The Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C., were seen by both the far left and far right as fitting the bill for an intentional "crisis trigger." In the weeks and months after the attacks, a subculture of "9/11 Truthism" emerged in which the attacks were seen as anything but a simple case of well-trained Al Qaeda operatives flying planes into landmark buildings. Instead, "truthers" argued that the World Trade Center buildings were destroyed by controlled demolitions, that a missile brought down United Airlines 93, and that a missile -- and not an airliner at all -- struck the Pentagon. Who was responsible? The U.S. government, of course. On the far left, the reason seen for attacking the American people was to justify a perpetual state of war; on the far right, it provided an excuse for the government to, at long last, institute a police state.
We've written a good bit about 9/11 here at the Daily Bell. It is in our view the biggest conspiracy theory of them all. One of our analyses focused on a Washington Times story reporting on open questions about 9/11. Here's how the Times article started: "A lingering technical question about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks still haunts some, and it has political implications: How did 200,000 tons of steel disintegrate and drop in 11 seconds? A thousand architects and engineers want to know, and are calling on Congress to order a new investigation into the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7 at the World Trade Center.
And the Times article continued: "'In order to bring down this kind of mass in such a short period of time, the material must have been artificially, exploded outwards,' says Richard Gage, a San Francisco architect and founder of the nonprofit Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth. Mr. Gage, who is a member of the American Institute of Architects, managed to persuade more than 1,000 of his peers to sign a new petition requesting a formal inquiry. 'The official Federal Emergency Management [Agency] and National Institute of Standards and Technology reports provide insufficient, contradictory and fraudulent accounts of the circumstances of the towers' destruction. We are therefore calling for a grand jury investigation of NIST officials,' Mr. Gage adds. You can see our story here: Washington Times Covers 911 Controversy.


7. Population Control ... For the conspiracy-minded, there is no such thing as an accidental tragedy or historical caprice. Each epidemic, mass industrial poisoning and medical advance (vaccinations, in particular) is just another highly suspicious example of the latest technologies being employed to further the agenda of hidden New World Order forces.
In fact, there are plenty of reasons to believe that the power elite would like to see the population lowered. The United Nations and other global groups have made it a goal, in fact, and the Chinese have gone much farther, making it illegal to have more than one child except in special circumstances. Then there are the engravings on the famous and mysterious Georgia Guidestones calling for a reduction of the world's population to 500 million. And there is the famous quote by Queen Elizabeth's husband Prince Philip (as related by the UK Guardian): "On death: In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, to contribute something to solving overpopulation." (1988)
The elite Club of Rome is well known for its aggressiveness as regards population control. Here's an anecdote as related by the ModernHistoryProject.com; "In 1976, [the COR] published RIO: Reshaping the International Order which called for a new international order, including an economic redistribution of wealth ... During the Carter Administration, a task force was appointed to expand upon this report, and on July 24, 1980, a two-volume document called Global 2000 Report, which had been written by former Secretary of State Cyrus R. Vance, was presented to President Carter, and then Secretary of State Edward S. Muskie. It attempted to project global economic trends for the next twenty years, and indicated that the resources of the planet were not sufficient enough to support the expect dramatic increase in the world population. The report called for the population of the U.S. to be reduced by 100 million people by the year 2050."



8. HAARP: This is the "Death Star" of the Patriot conspiracy galaxy, around which so many other conspiracies orbit and often intersect. According to the U.S. government, the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program is a joint scientific research project of the Air Force and Navy, based in Gakona, Ala., whose stated purpose is "studying the properties and behavior of the ionosphere, with particular emphasis on being able to understand and use it to enhance communications and surveillance systems for both civilian and to enhance communications and surveillance systems for both civilian and defense purposes."
One again, the article offers a rebuttal to its debunking in the very next paragraph, but interestingly does not finish what it begins. The article states: "Few true-blue Patriots believe that – and they aren't alone in their skepticism. Earlier this year, former Minnesota governor and tele-conspiracist Jesse Ventura visited the HAARP site for his TV show in an attempt to probe the official claims and find out 'what's really going on.' For those enthralled to a Patriot view of the world, the government's description of HAARP only scratches the surface."
We were intrigued because the article tells us that Ventura went to "the HAARP site" but then doesn't tell us what happened next. We went looking for the answer and found a summary of the Ventura program on "PureEnergyNet," as follows: "In his 'Conspiracy Theory series, movie star, professional wrestler, former Navy SEAL and former Minnesota governor, Jesse Ventura and his team take on HAARP, the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program. The official story of what the giga-watt broadcasting antennae array outside Gakona, Alaska is that it is for scientific research, primarily for communication studies: a premier facility for the study of ionospheric physics and radio science,' according to their official website. 'Why all the secrecy, then?' asks Ventura. And 'Why is the Army running the place?' The facility barred him from having access, even though he is a former governor and Navy SEAL."
The article continues: "The evidence that Ventura and his team uncover points to the facility actually being a weapon, with the ability to take down aircraft, manipulate weather (which is supposed to be illegal) and control your mind. The segment illustrated both the weather control and the mind control capabilities using much lower-power variations. Matt Imber asks and interesting question. 'Where are they getting all the energy to run that place?' Noting that there are no apparent over-land transmission lines, he wonders if maybe they don't have some kind of zero point energy or other exotic sequestered technology providing power.


9. The Federal Reserve Conspiracy: It wasn't long after its creation under Woodrow Wilson that the Federal Reserve System became a central fixture in the world of right-wing conspiracy. It was seen, rightly, as introducing European-style central banking into the United States.
We've written so much about the Federal Reserve that we'll rebut this one ourselves. Central banking generally is an open-conspiracy, which is how the power-elite likes to operate. Too much secrecy makes people suspicious, which is why the elite is always establishing think tanks and study groups that it can then use to put various schemes into action.
The logic behind labeling central banking an open conspiracy is simple. No one group of individuals can ever effectively control money, nor should a tiny handful of (mostly) men be allowed to print money at will – which is what central banking is all about. Because these men are deciding on how much money to print, they are essentially fixing the price of the money supply. Price-fixing doesn't work, as everyone knows, and thus after a while the stresses and strains of money supply distortion cause terrible booms and busts. These are all facts. Central banking is both an open conspiracy and a failed institution. That it continues, worldwide with all its ruin, only adds fuel to the arguments of those who see it as a conspiracy.


10. The North American Union: Since the passage of NAFTA in 1993, fears of economic dislocation and loss of sovereignty have animated both sides of the political spectrum. On the left, these fears are centered on the growth of transnational corporate power at the expense of U.S. labor and national policy. In some circles on the right, the trade bill is seen as the beginning of the so-called "North American Union" (NAU), the goal of a secret plan to merge the United States with Mexico and Canada and, in the process, eliminate sovereign government for each country. It is also a dominant conspiracy theory animating the hard-line anti-immigration movement, which overlaps heavily with Patriot territory.
How is the NAU a conspiracy theory? This is hard to fathom. As has been admitted many times by now, the European Union was sold endlessly as a trade agreement when the socialists behind it had in mind a full-fledged national government. Why isn't it possible that there are similar plans to combine Mexico, Canada and the United States (to begin with). There is already a South American trade union – Mercosur. It does not seem to be out of the realm of possibility that the powers-that-be would like to create an NAU as well. As we have already pointed out in a previous article, these unions are quite popular for some reason. There is even a common currency being planned for Africa!
Wikipedia tells us this about Mercosur: "The development of Mercosur was arguably weakened by the collapse of the Argentine economy in 2001 and it has still seen internal conflicts over trade policy, between Brazil and Argentina, Argentina and Uruguay, Paraguay and Brazil, etc. In addition, many obstacles are to be addressed before the development of a common currency in Mercosur."
As regards the NAU, Wikipedia reminds us of the following from Mexico's former president Vicente Fox: "In 2001, President of Mexico Vicente Fox said in an interview for Commanding Heights: The Battle for the World Economy that in the long term he sought with the United States a 'convergence of our two economies, convergence on the basic and fundamental variables of the economy, convergence on rates of interest, convergence on income of people, convergence on salaries.' ... After leaving office, he continued to support the concept, while expressing his disappointment with the changed American political situation which made it seem more difficult to come to fruition. In an online discussion of his book Revolution of Hope: The Life, Faith, and Dreams of A Mexican President Fox cited the process of European integration and asked a questioner, 'Why can't we be not only partners in the long term, but a North American Union?'


Conclusion: There is ample evidence in our view (on the Internet) that the powers-that-be seek continued global convergence and control. Most conspiracy theories in fact deal with ways that the elite plans to create and increase this control. The Daily Bell itself is an outgrowth of this phenomenon, pointing out on a regular basis how elite fear-based promotions are initiated and configured to permeate Western culture. Each of these promotions has its goal, in our opinion, (cumulatively, anyway) the formation and expansion of world government. The pattern is not hard to detect, we believe. One does not have to be "paranoid" to do so.

False Flags: state terrorism for dummies

A good recap on false flags from WantToKnow.info:

"False flag terrorism" occurs when elements within a government stage a secret operation whereby government forces pretend to be a targeted enemy while attacking their own forces or people. The attack is then falsely blamed on the enemy in order to justify going to war against that enemy. Or as Wikipedia defines it:
False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as if they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is, flying the flag of a country other than one's own. False flag operations are not limited to war and counter-insurgency operations, and have been used in peace-time; for example, during Italy's strategy of tension.
The term comes from the old days of wooden ships, when one ship would hang the flag of its enemy before attacking another ship in its own navy. Because the enemy's flag was hung instead of the flag of the real country of the attacking ship, it was called a "false flag" attack.
There are many examples of false flag attacks throughout history. For example, it is widely known that the Nazis, in Operation Himmler, faked attacks on their own people and resources which they blamed on the Poles, to justify the invasion of Poland. And it has now been persuasively argued (as shown, for example, in this History Channel video) that Nazis set fire to their own parliament, the Reichstag, and blamed that fire on others. The Reichstag fire was the watershed event which justified Hitler's seizure of power and suspension of liberties.
And in the early 1950s, agents of an Israeli terrorist cell operating in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including U.S. diplomatic facilities, then left behind "evidence" implicating the Arabs as the culprits (one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to identify the bombers). Israel's Defense Minister was brought down by the scandal, along with the entire Israeli government. Click here for verification.
The Russian KGB apparently conducted a wave of bombings in Russia in order to justify war against Chechnya and put Vladimir Putin into power (see also this essay and this report). And the Turkish government has been caught bombing its own and blaming it on a rebel group to justify a crackdown on that group. Muslim governments also play this game. For example, the well-respected former Indonesian president claimed that their government had a role in the Bali bombings.
This sounds nuts, right? You've never heard of this "false flag terrorism," where a government attacks its own people then blames others in order to justify its goals, right? And you are skeptical of the statements discussed above? Please take a look at these historical quotes:

"If tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy." - U.S. President James Madison

"Why of course the people don't want war ... But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ... Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." - Hermann Goering, Nazi leader.

What about the U.S.?
Is it logical to assume that, even if other countries have carried out false flag operations (especially horrible regimes such as, say, the Nazis or Stalin), the U.S. has never done so? Well, as documented by the New York Times, Iranians working for the C.I.A. in the 1950's posed as Communists and staged bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its democratically-elected president (see also this essay).
And, as confirmed by a former Italian Prime Minister, an Italian judge, and the former head of Italian counterintelligence, NATO carried out terror bombings in Italy with the help of the Pentagon and CIA and blamed communists in order to rally people’s support for their governments in Europe in their fight against communism. As one participant in this formerly-secret program stated: "You had to attack civilians, people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater security."
Moreover, declassified U.S. Government documents show that in the 1960s, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff signed off on a plan code-named Operation Northwoods 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. The operation was not carried out only because the Kennedy administration refused to implement these Pentagon plans.
For lots more on the astonishing Operation Northwoods, see the ABC news report; the official declassified documents; and watch this interview with James Bamford, the former Washington Investigative Producer for ABC's World News Tonight with Peter Jennings. One quote from the Northwoods documents states: "A 'Remember the Maine' incident could be arranged: We could blow up a US ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba. Casualty lists in US newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation."
What about Al-Qaeda?
You might think Al-Qaeda is different. It is very powerful, organized, and out to get us, right? Consider this Los Angeles Times article, reviewing a BBC documentary entitled The Power of Nightmares, which shows that the threat from Al Qaeda has been vastly overblown (and see this article on who is behind the hype). And former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski testified to the Senate that the war on terror is "a mythical historical narrative."
And did you know that the FBI had penetrated the cell which carried out the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, but had – at the last minute – cancelled the plan to have its FBI infiltrator substitute fake powder for real explosives, against the infiltrator's strong wishes? See also this TV news report.
Have you heard that the CIA is alleged to have met with Bin Laden two months before 9/11? Did you know that years after 9/11 the FBI first stated that it did not have sufficient evidence to prosecute Bin Laden for 9/11? (See also this partial confirmation by the Washington Post) And did you see the statement in Newsweek by the CIA commander in charge of the capture that the U.S. let Bin Laden escape from Afghanistan?
Have you heard that the anthrax attacks (which were sent along with notes purportedly written by Islamic terrorists) used a weaponized anthrax strain from the top U.S. bioweapons facility? Indeed, top bioweapons experts have stated that the anthrax attack may have been a CIA test "gone wrong." For more on this, see this article by a former NSA and naval intelligence officer and this statement by a distinguished law professor and bioterror expert (and this one).
It is also interesting that the only Congress members mailed anthrax letters were key Democrats, and that the attacks occurred one week before passage of the freedom-curtailing PATRIOT Act, which seems to have scared them and the rest of Congress into passing that act without even reading it. And though it may be a coincidence, White House staff began taking the anti-anthrax medicine before the Anthrax attacks occurred.
Even General William Odom, former director of the National Security Agency, said "By any measure the US has long used terrorism. In ‘78-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism, yet in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation" (the audio is here).

Why Does This Matter?
Please read what the following highly respected people are saying:
Former prominent Republican U.S. Congressman and CIA official Bob Barr stated that the U.S. is close to becoming a totalitarian society and that elements in government are using fear to try to bring this about.
Republican U.S. Congressman Ron Paul stated that the government "is determined to have martial law." He also said a contrived "Gulf of Tonkin-type incident may occur to gain popular support for an attack on Iran." Former National Security Adviser Brzezinski told the Senate that a terrorist act might be carried out in the U.S. and falsely blamed on Iran to justify yet another war.
The former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration, Paul Craig Roberts, who is called the "Father of Reaganomics" and is a former editor and columnist for the Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, and Scripps Howard News Service, has said:
"Ask yourself: Would a government that has lied us into two wars and is working to lie us into an attack on Iran shrink from staging 'terrorist' attacks in order to remove opposition to its agenda?
Retired 27-year CIA analyst Ray McGovern, who prepared and presented Presidential Daily Briefs and served as a high-level analyst for several presidents, stated that if there was another major attack in the U.S., it would lead to martial law. He went on to say:
"We have to be careful, if somebody does this kind of provocation – big violent explosions of some kind – we have to not take the word of the masters there in Washington that this was some terrorist event because it could well be a provocation allowing them, or seemingly to allow them to get what they want."
The former CIA analyst would not put it past the government to "play fast and loose" with terror alerts and warnings and even terrorist events in order to rally people behind the flag.
General Tommy Franks stated that if another terrorist attack occurs in the United States "the Constitution will likely be discarded in favor of a military form of government." Former UN Weapons Inspector Scott Ritter stated before the Iraq war started that there were no weapons of mass destruction. He is now saying that he would not rule out staged government terror by the U.S. government. And British Parliament Member George Galloway stated that "there is a very real danger" that the American government will stage a false flag terror attack in order to justify war against Iran and to gain complete control domestically.
The abundance of reliable information in this essay suggests that not only has the U.S. in the past conducted false flag operations, but there is a possibility that 9/11 involved some element of this deceit, and a future false flag operation cannot be ruled out. Let us spread this news to all who care so that we might build the critical mass necessary to stop these secret operations and work together for a more caring civil society.
