2+2 Does Equal 5 In 2015

"The Emergence of Orwellian Newspeak and the Death of Free Speech

“If you don’t want a man unhappy politically, don’t give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it…. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of ‘facts’ they feel stuffed, but absolutely ‘brilliant’ with information. Then they’ll feel they’re thinking, they’ll get a sense of motion without moving. And they’ll be happy, because facts of that sort don’t change.” ― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

How do you change the way people think? You start by changing the words they use.

In totalitarian regimes—a.k.a. police states—where conformity and compliance are enforced at the end of a loaded gun, the government dictates what words can and cannot be used. In countries where the police state hides behind a benevolent mask and disguises itself as tolerance, the citizens censor themselves, policing their words and thoughts to conform to the dictates of the mass mind.

Even when the motives behind this rigidly calibrated reorientation of societal language appear well-intentioned—discouraging racism, condemning violence, denouncing discrimination and hatred—inevitably, the end result is the same: intolerance, indoctrination and infantilism.

It’s political correctness disguised as tolerance, civility and love, but what it really amounts to is the chilling of free speech and the demonizing of viewpoints that run counter to the cultural elite.

As a society, we’ve become fearfully polite, careful to avoid offense, and largely unwilling to be labeled intolerant, hateful, closed-minded or any of the other toxic labels that carry a badge of shame today. The result is a nation where no one says what they really think anymore, at least if it runs counter to the prevailing views. Intolerance is the new scarlet letter of our day, a badge to be worn in shame and humiliation, deserving of society’s fear, loathing and utter banishment from society.

For those “haters” who dare to voice a different opinion, retribution is swift: they will be shamed, shouted down, silenced, censored, fired, cast out and generally relegated to the dust heap of ignorant, mean-spirited bullies who are guilty of various “word crimes.”

We have entered a new age where, as commentator Mark Steyn notes, “we have to tiptoe around on ever thinner eggshells” and “the forces of ‘tolerance’ are intolerant of anything less than full-blown celebratory approval.”

In such a climate of intolerance, there can be no freedom speech, expression or thought.

Yet what the forces of political correctness fail to realize is that they owe a debt to the so-called “haters” who have kept the First Amendment robust. From swastika-wearing Neo-Nazis marching marching through Skokie, Illinois, and underaged cross burners to “God hates fags” protesters assembled near military funerals, those who have inadvertently done the most to preserve the right to freedom of speech for all have espoused views that were downright unpopular, if not hateful.

Until recently, the U.S. Supreme Court has reiterated that the First Amendment prevents the government from proscribing speech, or even expressive conduct, because it disapproves of the ideas expressed. However, that long-vaunted, Court-enforced tolerance for “intolerant” speech has now given way to a paradigm in which the government can discriminate freely against First Amendment activity that takes place within a government forum. Justifying such discrimination as “government speech,” the Court ruled that the Texas Dept. of Motor Vehicles could refuse to issue specialty license plate designs featuring a Confederate battle flag. Why? Because it was deemed offensive.

The Court’s ruling came on the heels of a shooting in which a 21-year-old white gunman killed nine African-Americans during a Wednesday night Bible study at a church in Charleston, S.C. The two events, coupled with the fact that gunman Dylann Roof was reportedly pictured on several social media sites with a Confederate flag, have resulted in an emotionally charged stampede to sanitize the nation’s public places of anything that smacks of racism, starting with the Confederate flag and ballooning into a list that includes the removal of various Civil War monuments.

These tactics are nothing new. This nation, birthed from puritanical roots, has always struggled to balance its love of liberty with its moralistic need to censor books, music, art, language, symbols etc. As author Ray Bradbury notes, “There is more than one way to burn a book. And the world is full of people running about with lit matches.”

Indeed, thanks to the rise of political correctness, the population of book burners, censors, and judges has greatly expanded over the years so that they run the gamut from left-leaning to right-leaning and everything in between. By eliminating words, phrases and symbols from public discourse, the powers-that-be are sowing hate, distrust and paranoia. In this way, by bottling up dissent, they are creating a pressure cooker of stifled misery that will eventually blow.

For instance, the word “Christmas” is now taboo in the public schools, as is the word “gun.” Even childish drawings of soldiers result in detention or suspension under rigid zero tolerance policies. On college campuses, trigger warnings are being used to alert students to any material they might read, see or hear that might upset them, while free speech zones restrict anyone wishing to communicate a particular viewpoint to a specially designated area on campus. Things have gotten so bad that comedians such as Chris Rock and Jerry Seinfeld refuse to perform stand-up routines to college crowds anymore.

Clearly, the country is undergoing a nervous breakdown, and the news media is helping to push us to the brink of insanity by bombarding us with wall-to-wall news coverage and news cycles that change every few days.

In this way, it’s difficult to think or debate, let alone stay focused on one thing—namely, holding the government accountable to abiding by the rule of law—and the powers-that-be understand this.

As I document in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, regularly scheduled trivia and/or distractions keep the citizenry tuned into the various breaking news headlines and entertainment spectacles and tuned out to the government’s steady encroachments on our freedoms. These sleight-of-hand distractions and diversions are how you control a population, either inadvertently or intentionally, advancing a political agenda agenda without much opposition from the citizenry.

Professor Jacques Ellul studied this phenomenon of overwhelming news, short memories and the use of propaganda to advance hidden agendas. “One thought drives away another; old facts are chased by new ones,” wrote Ellul.

    Under these conditions there can be no thought. And, in fact, modern man does not think about current problems; he feels them. He reacts, but he does not understand them any more than he takes responsibility for them. He is even less capable of spotting any inconsistency between successive facts; man’s capacity to forget is unlimited. This is one of the most important and useful points for the propagandists, who can always be sure that a particular propaganda theme, statement, or event will be forgotten within a few weeks.

Already, the outrage over the Charleston shooting and racism are fading from the news headlines, yet the determination to censor the Confederate symbol remains. Before long, we will censor it from our thoughts, sanitize it from our history books, and eradicate it from our monuments without even recalling why. The question, of course, is what’s next on the list to be banned?

It was for the sake of preserving individuality and independence that James Madison, the author of the Bill of Rights, fought for a First Amendment that protected the “minority” against the majority, ensuring that even in the face of overwhelming pressure, a minority of one—even one who espouses distasteful viewpoints—would still have the right to speak freely, pray freely, assemble freely, challenge the government freely, and broadcast his views in the press freely.

This freedom for those in the unpopular minority constitutes the ultimate tolerance in a free society. Conversely, when we fail to abide by Madison’s dictates about greater tolerance for all viewpoints, no matter how distasteful, the end result is always the same: an indoctrinated, infantilized citizenry that marches in lockstep with the governmental regime.

Some of this past century’s greatest dystopian literature shows what happens when the populace is transformed into mindless automatons. In Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, reading is banned and books are burned in order to suppress dissenting ideas, while televised entertainment is used to anesthetize the populace and render them easily pacified, distracted and controlled.

In Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, serious literature, scientific thinking and experimentation are banned as subversive, while critical thinking is discouraged through the use of conditioning, social taboos and inferior education. Likewise, expressions of individuality, independence and morality are viewed as vulgar and abnormal.

And in George Orwell’s 1984, Big Brother does away with all undesirable and unnecessary words and meanings, even going so far as to routinely rewrite history and punish “thoughtcrimes.” In this dystopian vision of the future, the Thought Police serve as the eyes and ears of Big Brother, while the Ministry of Peace deals with war and defense, the Ministry of Plenty deals with economic affairs (rationing and starvation), the Ministry of Love deals with law and order (torture and brainwashing), and the Ministry of Truth deals with news, entertainment, education and art (propaganda). The mottos of Oceania: WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, and IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.

All three—Bradbury, Huxley and Orwell—had an uncanny knack for realizing the future, yet it is Orwell who best understood the power of language to manipulate the masses. Orwell’s Big Brother relied on Newspeak to eliminate undesirable words, strip such words as remained of unorthodox meanings and make independent, non-government-approved thought altogether unnecessary. To give a single example, as psychologist Erich Fromm illustrates in his afterword to 1984:

    The word free still existed in Newspeak, but it could only be used in such statements as “This dog is free from lice” or “This field is free from weeds.” It could not be used in its old sense of “politically free” or “intellectually free,” since political and intellectual freedom no longer existed as concepts….

Where we stand now is at the juncture of OldSpeak (where words have meanings, and ideas can be dangerous) and Newspeak (where only that which is “safe” and “accepted” by the majority is permitted). The power elite has made their intentions clear: they will pursue and prosecute any and all words, thoughts and expressions that challenge their authority.

This is the final link in the police state chain.

Having been reduced to a cowering citizenry—mute in the face of elected officials who refuse to represent us, helpless in the face of police brutality, powerless in the face of militarized tactics and technology that treat us like enemy combatants on a battlefield, and naked in the face of government surveillance that sees and hears all—we have nowhere left to go. Our backs are to the walls. From this point on, we have only two options: go down fighting, or capitulate and betray our loved ones, our friends and our selves by insisting that, as a brainwashed Winston Smith does at the end of Orwell’s 1984, yes, 2+2 does equal 5.

The Way Forward in 2015

"The Only Way Forward In 2015

by Brandon Turbeville
Friday, June 19, 2015

In the year 2015, America and the rest of the world finds itself at a crossroads. The time is fast approaching when the world’s population will receive the final choice between a move toward true freedom or the clampdown of total oppression. Throughout recorded history, tyrannies have arisen and morphed into other forms with the end result being the creation and maintenance of a permanent worldwide oligarchy that is attempting to ensure the end of all independent thought and action.

This oligarchy has maintained its control by a number of different methods, the concept of “divide and conquer” being one of the most important in its arsenal. Throughout history, the divisions of race, religion, national borders, and class have all been cleverly used to keep the many from rightly viewing the few as the enemy.

In the past, there have been times where the façade has shown cracks and there have been individuals who have shown their perception of the obstacle of division and subsequently made strides to overcome it. Those individuals did their best but were promptly silenced or murdered for their efforts. The murders of JFK, RFK, MLK, and others are all testaments to this idea. Particularly with Martin Luther King Jr., the danger to the oligarchy was not so much his fight for civil rights for black Americans, his opposition to the Vietnam war, and his concerns for labor that posed a threat to the oligarchy individually, it was his ability to unify those varied interests – blacks and black civil rights activists, white war protesters, and blue collar workers – that represented the greatest threat.

In 2015, however, after experiencing decades of declining political interest and knowledge on the part of the general public and a few short years of increasing political awareness thanks to the alternative media, the tide has seemingly turned yet again in the downward direction.

In 2015, the presence of “traditional” activists has dramatically declined due to the general lack of interest in political affairs amongst the general public. Even among the alternative media and “awake” activists, the focus has become one of money and self-promotion rather than a cause. The rally cry is “come to MY website!” “listen to MY radio show!” instead of a cry to bring more individuals into the movement as a whole. The focus is now on stealing listeners and readers from other radio shows and websites as opposed to stealing empty heads away from the oligarchy.

Political divisions have taken America down to the lowest depths of division seen in decades. Religious tensions are reaching a new height. Racial tension is increasing as is tension between genders and those of other sexual orientations. With racial movements like “#Black Lives Matter being promoted by the Soros-funded left, radical Christian “conservative” “draw Muhammed” contests and anti-Muslim protests being promoted from notorious Neo-Con networks, and a number of other agitational movements, America is as divided as it has ever been.

Those few concerned with political developments are siphoned off into Republican vs. Democrat debates and Liberal vs. Conservative ideologies. Any issue that arises of any substance is quickly pushed off into one of the two camps. Support the Second Amendment? You must be a crazed right wing white Republican. Support workers' rights and labor protections? You must be a socialist Liberal Democrat. Oppose mandatory vaccination? You must be an anti-science Republican. Oppose police brutality? You must be black and anti-white. Oppose war? You must be an anti-American commie. Have opinions that don’t fit into the mold? You are a crazy conspiracy theorist.

Even among the alternative media and the activist community, political pedigrees have become major obstacles with Libertarians fighting with socialists, conservatives fighting with liberals, anarchists fighting with everyone including themselves, and so on. Groups have allowed egos and minor differences to stand between them and their ultimate goals.

For instance, pro-gun groups may not interact with other pro-gun groups, even within their own state, simply because of minor differences. White gun groups and proponents do not interact with black gun groups and proponents. Likewise with any other issue – economics, vaccines, war, etc. This is not to imply racism as the reason, but it does demonstrate a true disconnect.

Unfortunately, it is a disconnect that we cannot afford.

An example can be seen in recent open carry protests that have taken place all across the country. These protests have caused a stir due to the enormous brainwashing the American people have been subjected to regarding guns, especially when those guns are carried visibly and publicly. The overwhelming majority of these protesters were of the conservative variety. The overwhelming majority were also white.

Later, the Huey P. Newton Gun Club announced a similar protest, inviting all interested parties – black and white – to attend. The end result was two protests – one black and one white. Yet there was only ever one issue! An issue that both parties agreed upon! Unfortunately, blacks did not show up for the white protests and whites did not show up to the black protest. Both absences were tragic squanderings of an opportunity for members of two different “communities” to reach out and express solidarity with one another, even if the only accomplishment was to express support for the Second Amendment and nothing more.

Of course, the Second Amendment is not the only issue where the racial divide has played a part. It certainly was not the first. But it MUST be the last.

Recently, in California, a gathering of protesters assembled to express their discontent with SB 277, a California bill that would have eliminated most of the vaccine exemptions for children in California. The protesters in the crowd, while mostly white (from the videos of the event), were joined by members of the black community, specifically members of the Nation of Islam.

Many of the individuals of the protest movement were no doubt of various backgrounds, some conservative, some liberal, some independent. There is also little doubt that these individuals would have loved to have greater participation in their rally and more individuals fighting for their cause as well as to have involved and worked with members of the black community.

That being said, the black community has largely distrusted vaccinations for decades as they were so often the guinea pigs of experimentation and extermination campaigns in the past. So many informed members of this community undoubtedly wish for their voice to be heard.

So why is this so hard to accomplish? The media-provoked racial divide – growing more and more tense with each Soros-funded #BlackLivesMatter campaign and Koch funded FOX racial stirring report or radical defense of brutal police – has been extremely successful in convincing members of both communities that the “other” is not to be trusted.

Well, here is a newsflash. Both races have distrusted one another for decades, and for decades American activists have been fighting for the same thing. Have they achieved it? No. They have been steadily losing ground with each passing year. After the death of Martin Luther King, Americans as a whole have been moving backwards not forwards in nearly every single category.

The lesson is simple: Separate isn’t working. It’s time to try something else.

Finally, it appears that some activists have finally figured this out. When the Nation of Islam joined the anti-NB277 rally, it was not only expression of both communities’ willingness to work together and engage in enlightened mutual self interest, it was a message to all other activists that this is the way forward. It was also a message to the oligarchy that blacks and whites – at least the more astute ones – are tired of being played against one another.

As Heather Callaghan described the event,

Big Pharma used every psy-weapon available to demonize opponents of forced vaccination bills like SB277 which would remove virtually all vaccine exemptions from California children. This psy-op is evidenced by the four top signs of astroturfing and media manipulation. They not only used typical witch hunt lingo and painted quite the narrative to demonize opponents of vaccination, forming a "debate" where there was none - debates usually include two willing parties and are not driven by one forceful entity - but also twisted it up by politicizing it into a left-right Punch and Judy show which created more confusing division.

Basically, the media tried to shame liberals and blame the middle-class educated crowd for causing disease outbreaks, even though California's children are over 97% vaccinated. They magically drove the choice over one's body into a Right issue and painted it as uneducated, stodgy and outdated. Then they pulled out the conservatives' only known black idols - Drs. Ben Carson and Thomas Sowell (educated by the Pharma/Rockefeller-funded Hoover Institute) who both suddenly came out in glowing support of vaccines.

But others that are beloved in the black community had something to say about vaccines...


Louis Farrakhan and Tony Muhammad simply say No! They don't pull punches by asking for a choice. They've drawn a line in the sand, especially since whistleblowers came out with information of covered up data showing that the MMR vaccine can create higher rates of autism among young black males. Farrakhan recently spoke with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. about vaccines and asked "Am I the only one?..." Meaning the only black man to speak out about forced vaccination as it applies to SB277.

But Tony's epic under-the-radar speech shows more than just the long-awaited ire of the black community who don't wish for another "Tuskegee experiment" - it shows that blacks and whites are not taking the division-bait. They are not being divided and conquered.

If there is to be any hope for this country and the rest of the world, it will lie in the ability for individuals who are part of the masses to put away differences and work together. This idea is not a “We Are The World” pie-in-the-sky “let’s all hold hands and love each other” ideal. It is the concept of Enlightened Self-Interest and Enlightened MUTUAL Self-Interest.

Peace and harmony is the ideal. Friendship, understanding, and compassion between races is also a noble goal. But, in the absence of the ideal, we must be willing to accept a mutual understanding that our own self-interest is inextricably linked. No one is demanding that you like one another. But we must begin to recognize common interests, setting aside differences at least temporarily, before we lose everything.

King understood this concept and he did what he could to implement it. It was such a threat that it got him killed. So with that in mind, we can see clearly what the system sees as a threat and what we must do bring it down or, at least, land a few blows in return.

As the (Green) Crow Flies....

"Geopolitical Thoughts and Nightmares

People often ask me what my complete geopolitical theory looks like. Actually, nobody ever asks me that.  But some days, like today, when it appears I might be remotely right...or at least close to the truth about some of the conclusions I've drawn over the years, I get the urge to expound. Ever since the events of 9/11, there exists a black hole on planet earth...sucking in all peace, light and goodness--in big intermittent gulps--by way of "random" toxic false flags and hoaxes. Sometimes the grotesque outline of evil is cast against a dark today...a shape revealed by a bolt of lightning/insight.

It's been a long hard slog for me, as it has been for most truthers, Piecing the pieces of the puzzle together...from crumbs of evidence dropped carelessly [or deliberately] by the they go their mouldy way. When the pieces fit together and begin to form a pattern...what emerges are geopolitical thoughts and nightmares...insights into the mind of the evil ones...small pinpoints of light into their dark machinations. It's not a pretty sight, but at least it provides temporary relief from the numbing grief and sense of hopelessness we truther's feel about 9/11 and all its succeeding wars and atrocities.

Nobody holds the franchise to truth. Some of us have small bits and pieces of it but are totally clueless about other parts...this SHOULD keep us humble and sharing...but it doesn't always. Here's what I've come up with so far...some ideas that, for me, have survived the test of time and efforts at disinformation and confusion:

1.  9/11 was an organized coup of the American Government by Ziofascist globalists.  The leaders of the coup have deep roots back to the Kennedy assassinations and are geopolitical kin of the perps of the Bolshevik revolution in Russia. They are a rogue group of fanatical, insane psychopaths/parasites...who infest/control all the institutions of American governance, military, judicial, political, media.

2.  Their current US leaders are probably Dick Cheney and a close close circle of neocons who surround him. They operate a shadow government located in an underground bunker under the East Wing of the White House where the group staged the 9/11 coup:

"...Vice President Dick Cheney is taken by the Secret Service from his White House office toward the Presidential Emergency Operations Center (PEOC) below the East Wing of the White House around this time, according to some accounts, although other accounts, including the 9/11 Commission Report, will state that he is evacuated from his office about half an hour later. ....“his Secret Service detail grabbed him and hurried him down to [the] PEOC..."

The shadow government bunker is probably connected to others in the hills of West Virginia--a huge underground city connected by tunnels--with access to the latest military and NSA surveillance techniques--ability to spy over the whole globe. They have other bunkers throughout the US and probably the world. This spying ability gives the rogue government supreme confidence they're at least 10 steps ahead of the weak and disorganized "opposition". They've been able to maintain control over all the "choke" points (military, judiciary, media, politics....where truth/justice might emerge) in the years post 9/11.

3.  The only potential threat/opposition now emerging is Russia/Putin. Russia is a threat not because it would take the US to task for the events of 9/11 (it wouldn't) but because it is not under their control. They are fanatical about maintaining total control over humanity. Control is essential for their plans (whatever these may be).  9/11 and subsequent events were but a small part of a vast, complicated plan and these insane nutbars are absolutely fanatical about carrying out the total plan. They have kept all participants/victims in line so far by threats and rewards. They make sure their fellow conspiracists know they have burned all bridges behind them...there's no way back for any of them--and perhaps not for humanity as we know it. I'm talking about nukes set up in all major cities of the world. I'm talking about Stuxnet/Fukushima being far worse than we have been told. Fukushima was a false flag probably worse than 9/11--against Japan. I'm talking about the potential for more Stuxnets/Fukushima and weather/HAARP, EMP events constantly being threatened against any opposition.

4.  They control NATO and the "Five Eyes". They keep them (and everyone) in line by terrorizing, humiliating ("bitchslapping") and bullying them. They make it crystal clear to anyone who steps out of line that they will be the next relentless target of their far-reaching, laser-like, brutality. They use their obvious insanity and addiction to death and chaos--as a whip against any threats. Their targets understand that these folks will stop at NOTHING to achieve their goals.

5.  They are working towards a nuclear WWIII.  This war is the tool they will use for their endgame of killing off life as we know it on this planet. They believe they have enough underground resources to survive and prevail...."The living [above ground] will envy the dead." The constant False Flags act both as a provocation and as a form of drill to show readiness, intent and weed out any weak links (i.e. Drilling the Message)

How do I go about my daily life knowing and believing the above? Well, I can tell you that I harbour great anger/resentment against the sheeple (approximately 63% of the population)....for refusing to confront the truth. If the majority had faced the evidence, both physical and logical, right after 9/11 (the laws of physics, for example) and brought the 9/11 perps to justice...we would not be in this situation today. The sheeple (I know and am related to some of them) are cowards and addicted to the easy life. Now, we will all pay the far greater price because the insane ones have become more entrenched and have upped the ante exponentially.  The most devious "achievement" of the perps is that they have "divided and conquered" society, isolating the critical thinkers and lowering their status in society.

At the same time I am at peace. I never fell for their lies. (I know that even this Blog is controlled by them---in the form of one of their assets, Google). It can be shut down at any time. That doesn't bother me, in fact in some ways it would be a relief : ). No more playing "cat and mouse' with Google. Whatever happens, at least I know I have done what I could--and will do more if the opportunity presents. Some hopeful events have occurred, even in the last year, that make me believe that the crisis is moving towards resolution, one way or the other. Putin has a rare gift of leadership. Hope and opportunity are the mortal enemies of the evil ones...who feed off of chaos, disasters and death. Putin's insight into this fundamental of the human condition means he's careful never to "corner the rats" but always to provide other options and offer "hope" the way of (as an example) a grand "Super" highway from London across Siberia to New York. In past epochs...there was always a "New World" to prevent humanity from turning on itself in despair and self destruction.

Another understanding I get encouragement the old cliche that "sunlight is the greatest disinfectant". This nightmare could all be over in 48 hours if truthers prevailed...justice was allowed to take its course....and the 9/11 perps (or even a few at the top---Bush/Netanyahu/Cheney/Rove) were jailed. Jail for the ringleaders would leave the bunkers in disarray. So near...yet so far.


Flew all the way up to Canada:

"The Pentagon’s “Operation Jade Helm 15″: The Floodgate towards Martial Law and World War III

by Joachim Hagopian
Global Research, April 20, 2015

First we learned that Operation Jade Helm 15 is coming this summer from mid-July through mid-September to a Southwest neighborhood near you stretching from Texas to California. Per government sources and their mainstream media outlets like the Washington Post, it’s nothing more than a benign massive military drill designed to test how effectively US Special Operations forces can covertly and as seamlessly as possible embed themselves into the civilian populace as a mere security training exercise to keep us all safe in the future. The Washington Post March 31st headline - “Why Operation Jade Helm 15 is Freaking out the Internet and Why it Shouldn’t Be” - then goes on to list several alternative news sites like InfoWars making the claim that martial law in America is coming soon.

According to last August’s CNN poll, an all-time high of 87% of Americans simply do not trust their own government nor mainstream media as truthful or credible. More and more Americans are turning to alternative news sources in an attempt to find out what’s really going on in their world.

But the rash of “sky is falling” headlines from the internet news sources have created a media firestorm. Millions of Americans could hardly be consoled by the Washington Post article encouraging them not to worry that our government once again is up to no good. Instead those distrusting MSM believe Jade Helm 15 is a training exercise that will pave the way for US martial law similar to how the Boston Marathon false flag was a litmus test for martial law imposed on a major US metropolitan city. Except this time Jade Helm’s unprecedented size and scope covers a large expansive area taking up the southwestern quadrant of the United States.

The US military has designated certain states like Texas, Utah and part of Southern California during this operation as “hostile,” adding that “New Mexico isn’t much friendlier.” That the one time reputable DC newspaper that broke Watergate in the 70’s describes the Jade Helm operation in terms as if it were some kind of board game like Risk or Monopoly doesn’t help its already dubious credibility. Millions of Americans have realized their own oligarchic government has betrayed them and their interests and simply can no longer be trusted. So in the eyes of the feds, that would automatically make them “hostile.” The Post article also list several past covert military operations where states have been labeled as hostile territory for purposes of the training exercises. And of course that they went by unnoticed should give us solace the Jade’s outcome will be no different.

Now that the fascist totalitarian oligarchy posing as our federal government has been busily expanding its military wars from the Middle East to American soil against its own law abiding citizens, the Post tells us we shouldn’t worry. George W Bush once infamously proclaimed “you’re either with us or against us.”

The fact that police in America armed with the same heavy weaponry look identical to US combat troops fighting foreign wars are now murdering unarmed US citizens at an unprecedented rate, we shouldn’t worry? The number of Americans civilians since 9/11 killed by militant police is closing in on the number of American soldiers killed in action fighting in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars (as of a year ago 6802). Though no actual records are conveniently kept of police killing Americans, a year and a half ago it was reported that estimates of over 5000 Americans were killed by police since 9/11. Tack on the mounting numbers of police killings that have increased exponentially in the last year and a half and it could well exceed the KIA’s from foreign wars by now. That tells us the same counterinsurgency wars the US has been brutally waging on foreign soil is now being fought against us in the streets of America. As such, we stand to lose our life 55 times greater from our own police than any actual terrorists. And if you happen to be an African American male, that likelihood skyrockets.

As of the 2012 NDAA, military forces can enter our homes without warrants or charges and lock us up indefinitely without trial or legal representation. And according to that Washington Post article, apparently we should have no concerns about Special Forces showing up at our doorstep or roaming through our neighborhoods for several months over the summer. Our friendly state propagandist Washington Post says that when the elite wing of Big Brother’s killing machine invades our local communities, we should actually feel safer. Military spokesman Army Lt. Col. Mark Lastoria’s e-mail stated, “Training exercise Jade Helm is going to assist our Special Operations Soldiers and leadership in refining the skills needed against an ever changing foreign threat.” And we should all believe this because the military has such a great track record of always telling us the truth.

From the Boston Marathon bombings to Sandy Hook, the government has been executing false flags for purposes of imposing absolute NWO control over its citizens. Ever since the neocons’ inside 9/11 job the feds have used their “national security” card ad nauseam as their flimsy excuse to willfully betray our Constitution that they all swore oaths to uphold. And in its place treasonous governments in the West have systematically enacted draconian Orwellian laws of tyranny and oppression to conveniently vilify citizens bold enough to demand their civil liberties and privacy rights back. We dissidents who do not approve of our government’s obliteration of our constitutional rights have become the feds’ targeted enemy and deemed potential homegrown terrorists. Even homecoming veterans from US foreign wars are perceived as threats.

The international criminal cabal beholding to the Western oligarchs has infiltrated and hijacked the governments of Israel and the United States as well as Europe, Canada, Australia and Japan. We have a crime syndicate that has protected the international banksters who’ve been laundering drug money for multiple decades in its international drug trade. There’s nothing new here as the Bush crime family has been running drugs from South and Central America since the 1970’s. For years the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the State Department, the CIA, the FBI, the US military and their paramilitary private contractors have been flooding America and especially its inner cities with drugs – crack cocaine from Latin America and heroin from Afghanistan. High levels of the US government have partnered with drug cartels from Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Central America, and Dominican Republic to maintain their criminal activities. At the same time, ever since the late 1970’s high levels within these same US rogue crime agencies have also been partnering with al Qaeda/ISIS to create their invented “war on terror.”

And now if you believe many of the independent media sources, as of this summer all these sinister elements appear to be converging to soon cause catastrophic upheaval in the US Southwest, likely to change America forever. According to Judicial Watch earlier this week, the independent federal watchdog organization revealed that the US government is complicit with both the Mexican government and the Sinaloa drug cartel to be involved in joint training camp operations with ISIS a few miles from El Paso, Texas across the border in Mexico. Judicial Watch claims a Mexican military field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector are among its sources. The camp is said to be located just eight miles from the US border. Despite the US intelligence community being well aware of this claim that terrorists might be currently training a few miles from our border and apparently planning an alleged invasion of the United States, President Obama as commander-in-chief apparently is laying low with only the already announced plans of Jade Helm operations that neither include a false flag war involving ISIS nor World War III as much of the internet media is all abuzz.

Between the US State Department’s Fast and Furious gun smuggling operation that was caught “inadvertently” arming drug cartels several years ago, and the feds’ funding and secret backing of ISIS as their proxy mercenary allies, several independent media sites maintain that a covert operation involving ISIS’ hybrid terrorists have been “slipping” across the border into the United States as provocateur forces designed to kill American citizens. Jade Helm and this latest ISIS piece converging on the states bordering Mexico are said to be the Obama excuse he’s been planning to implement martial law, illegally arresting American dissidents after a false flag event where Americans are murdered by the feds’ terrorist stooges.

Even more alarming is The Common Sense Show’s  Dave Hodges most recent post including photos of surface to air missiles at a US Air Force base that literally appeared overnight near Lubbock, Texas. In the designated hostile state of Texas, Hodges believes more than just martial law will be initiated but an actual US invasion and World War III is planned.

These days it is becoming increasingly more difficult to ferret out the truth, be it mainstream or independent media sources. A major strategy the federal government commonly uses to discredit alternative media is planting disinformation within its ranks. Government moles have infiltrated the so called independent online media, intentionally muddying the waters so murky as to obscure the facts. When alternative sites cry out that the sky is falling and then it doesn’t, it conditions consumers of independent media to no longer believe them either, thus rendering all independent news outlets “whacked out conspiracy theorists.” Through various PSYOPS the US intelligence community has targeted both social media as well as alternative news media as viably effective outlets to spread further disinformation and propaganda lies. Of course this malicious agenda of the US government purposely keeping Americans uninformed in the dark, too dumbed down and confused, not knowing who or what to believe or trust as the actual truth, is exactly where the feds want us.

After checking with their inside sources, Veterans Today editors Gordon Duff and Jim W. Dean have drawn the conclusion that the neocon feds have purposely used Jade Helm 15 to deceive and discredit independent news sources that are running with the ISIS invasion story.

This writer is uncertain of the coming events this summer. I’m unwilling to completely rule out the dire forecast of “an ISIS invasion” while simultaneously I’m unwilling to trust what the feds, the military or the Washington Post claim Jade Helm will bring as well. It bears in mind today to be skeptical in a healthy way toward any and all news outlets. Unfortunately it requires some vigilance and a willingness to do homework cross-checking sources to arrive at a more informed and accurate assessment of what may actually be transpiring in the world. By design the sub-standard educational system fails miserably in teaching discriminative, critical thinking amongst our population. Many people of course don’t have the luxury of time to invest in seeking out multiple sources to arrive at the truth in their fast paced, muddled, upside down world. Too many hidden agendas from both the right and the left carry misinformation and deception, whether intended or not. Ultimately the rule of thumb should minimally be to check the sources of whatever news information you utilize in order to draw your own conclusions.

How Hitler Saved Europe

It astonishes and saddens me that I was taught and told such a distorted version of history all these years. That's all I can say.

"Fourteen Days that Saved the World

Paul Ballard

‘The Nazi command succeeded in forestalling our troops literally two weeks before the war began.’ -- General S. P. Ivanov, Chief of the General Staff Academy of the Armed Forces of the USSR, 1974.

The critical moment of World War Two – if not of the twentieth century – is generally regarded as Adolf Hitler’s decision in 1941 to launch an unprovoked assault upon a hitherto neutral and peaceful Soviet Union. Operation Barbarossa, as it was called, is perceived as the great tactical mistake which doomed Nazi Germany to defeat. Icebreaker, by Russian historian Victor Suvorov, exposes this scenario as nonsense. This extensively researched piece of historical revisionism provides compelling evidence that Operation Barbarossa was a reluctant pre-emptive strike against a massive Soviet military machine which was at that time poised to invade not just Germany, but the whole of Western Europe.

Suvorov quotes top secret Soviet documents which make it crystal clear that Soviet military theory was based on offence and the conquest of territory “for the World revolution.” And this theoretical plan for offensive war was matched by practical preparations in every branch of the armed forces.

In 1939, when Britain declared war on Germany, Hitler came into the war with a total of 3,195 tanks, fewer than the Kharkov works in the Soviet Union was producing every six months on a “peace-time” footing. The Kharkov works produced the BT high speed tank which was capable of 100km/h and had a range of 700km. Based on a design by the American tank genius J. W. Christie, these tanks had their engine and transmission systems at the rear and were twenty-five years ahead of their time. By 1936, BT tanks were fording deep rivers underwater and driving along river beds.

On unmade roads the BT operated (although not very effectively) on heavy tracks, but once on good roads, the tracks were discarded and the tank raced ahead on wheels. The only real roads were to be found in western Europe, in particular the German autobahn network, for which the tanks were intended. The claim that Stalin’s tanks were not ready for war is not true; they were not ready for a defensive war.

The same applied to Soviet aircraft in both numbers and quality. Communist falsifiers in the post-war period claimed that although the Soviet Union had many aircraft, they were inferior. In fact, the most heavily armed fighter in the world in 1939 was the Russian Polikarov I-16; the type 17 had two synchronised 7.62mm machine-guns and two 20mm cannons mounted on the wings, conferring a weight of fire twice that of the Messerschmitt 109E-1, and nearly three times that of the Spitfire 1.

Rocket First

Soviet aircraft builders created a plane, unique in the world, which had an armoured fusilage. The IL-2 was virtually a flying tank with extremely high powered weaponry, including eight rocket launchers. Soviet planes were the first in the world to use rockets in combat.

The fatal weakness in this formidable airforce was that none of its pilots had been trained for dog-fights with enemy planes. The Soviet battle plan relied on a massive surprise attack to knock out the enemy airforce on the ground in the first few hours of the war. By mid-June 1941, in final preparation for such a blow, Stalin’s planes themselves presented an ideal target, packed wingtip to wingtip on temporary airstrips immediately behind the front line, rather than being dispersed several hundred miles to the rear as they would have been in preparation for a defensive war.

Likewise, airborne assault troops are only useful to an aggressor. Countries concerned with defence need very few. Hitler had created only 4,000 paratroopers by 1939, but Stalin already had more than a million – 200 times more than the rest of the world, including Germany, put together. There were 10 Corps, each supported by airborne artillery and even battalions of light amphibious tanks.

Soviet engineers were also hoping to land hundreds, or even thousands, of tanks in the West. Antonov, the aircraft designer, suggested that the ordinary tank be fitted with wings and a tail with its hull used as the framework. The tank crew controlled the flight by turning the turret and raising the barrel of the cannon! The entire construction of the KT was astonishingly simple. The risks of flying it even the short path between being dropped from a plane and landing on the ground were unusually great, but human life was cheap to Stalin. The idea was that just before landing the tank engine was started up and the tracks made to revolve at maximum speed. The KT then landed on its tracks and gradually braked. It is claimed that prototypes were actually flown but, like the million paratroopers, they were no use in the unexpected defensive war started by the German invasion.

Once the paratroopers had seized key points and airfields, the Soviet plan then called for huge numbers of reinforcements to be flown in. As well as building massive numbers of C-47 (Dakota) heavy transport planes under licence from the U. S. government, Stalin ordered a huge glider building programme. The ten different designs included Antonov’s multi-seater assault glider the A-7 and the KZ-20, which could carry twenty soldiers.

The human cost of this extravagant military expansion was horrific. Having sold Russia’s artistic treasures and vast reserves of gold, platinum and diamonds, the Bolsheviks began their notorious collectivisation programme. The peasants were driven into collective farms so that crops could be taken from them without payment. Ten to sixteen million died from the collectivisation and the resulting famine, compared with 2.5 million Russians in World War One. Yet Stalin sold five million tons of grain abroad every year.

Stalin Line

Some of the money was spent on the thirteen fortified regions which were built along the Soviet Union’s western frontier, in a strip of territory unofficially called the Stalin Line. A complex system of combat and supply installations, armoured and built of concrete, was constructed along the 30-50km deep zone; there were also reinforced concrete underground premises to serve as storage depots and command posts.

The fortified regions were built with enormous effort and vast expense during the first two Five Year Plans. In 1938 it was decided to reinforce each region by building heavy artillery carponiers. More than a thousand combat installations a year were concreted into the region.

In 1939 the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact was signed. Once Poland had been partitioned there was no longer a neutral buffer zone. Stalin could have ordered the garrisons on the line to be strengthened and additional belts of fortified zones could have been constructed behind and in front of the existing line. But in fact the existing fortified regions were dismantled. Some military buildings were handed over to collective farms for vegetable storage, but most were buried or dismantled. In the spring of 1941 powerful explosions thundered across the 1,200km line as armoured firing positions were blown up.

The reason was simple: Stalin had decided to spread Bolshevism westwards, and the belt of fortifications would have blocked supply routes, creating dangerous bottlenecks for the millions of tons of ammunition, food supplies and fuel needed for the offensive.

Only a week after the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact was signed, Stalin played his first dirty trick. Hitler began the war with Poland as they had agreed, but Stalin claimed that he was not yet ready. Hitler found himself on his own, and immediately at war with France and Britain as well. Meanwhile, Stalin marked the conclusion of this “non-aggression” treaty by introducing general military service.

A new “defensive” line was started in partitioned Poland, but although constructed very slowly and visibly, it remained a comparatively light and uncomplicated series of fortifications. Mines were removed from the vicinity of bridges and mile after mile of barbed wire was cut. Unnecessary bridges across rivers on the new frontier remained intact, and later greatly aided the German advance.

In the spring of 1941, the Germans began similar preparations. Both sides erected offensive fortifications. Before launching an attack great masses of troops would have to be concentrated in very narrow sectors: German troops in the Suwalki and Lublin salients and Soviet troops in the areas of Lvov and Bialystok. In order to assemble these shock groupings the secondary sectors were denuded of troops – the lightweight fortifications prevented them from being completely exposed.

With, by 1941, the last obstacles to the Red advance removed, the Soviet Union possessed thirty separate armies. This was the largest military force the world had ever seen and it could not be maintained for long without mass starvation. The plundering of neighbouring countries would have been the only means of paying for and justifying such a force.

Many of the best armies were not deployed to fight Germany but to invade virtually defenceless neutral states, as Stalin had already done throughout Eastern Europe. The 9th army was concentrated on the frontier with Rumania and an assault crossing of the Danube was planned by its 14th Rifle Corps. The 12th and 18th “mountain armies” were positioned to move south-west along the Carpathian mountains to cut Germany off from the Ploesti oilfield in Rumania and west into Czechoslovakia, which would enable Stalin to cut the Rumania-Germany oil pipeline. Without this irreplaceable Rumanian oil, the tanks, lorries, submarines, battleships and planes which were massed far away to the west would simply grind to a halt.

The seven armies in the Second Strategic Echelon included many thousands of men who had been released from concentration camps that spring to expiate their “guilt” by fighting for the Soviets. The generals and officers were also usually former political prisoners and were desperate to prove their worth. Their lives and those of their families were at stake. They were known as the “Black Divisions” because many still wore their black Gulag uniforms. The most powerful of the Second Echelon armies was the 19th, which was transferred from the North Caucasus to approximately 150km north of the Black Sea. It contained mountain rifle divisions which could also be used in Rumania. They were making their way to the frontier when Germany invaded.

They were not alone. In the final preparations for the attack on the West, millions of soldiers were still heading for the front in trains. Very often their ammunition and heavy weapons were being transported separately. Huge supply dumps were stockpiled just a few miles from the German lines. Most of the airforce were similarly exposed. For a few critical days, Stalin’s mighty invasion force was incapable of defending itself.

Stalin believed that he had convinced Hitler that the Soviet Union was truly neutral and assumed that the Germans were busy finalising an invasion of Britain. Hitler’s conquests had created an unprecedented situation in Poland, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Norway, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, Yugoslavia, France, Greece and Albania. Their armies, governments, parliaments and political parties had been destroyed. Stalin’s huge armies were in an ideal position to take over Europe, but Hitler guessed Stalin’s design so that even in 1945 the Soviets only got half of Europe, and some territory in Asia.

At a Politburo meeting on 21st June 1941 G. R. U. (Military Intelligence) chief General Golikov reported that there was a massive concentration of the German airforce on the Soviet border, enormous reserves of ammunition and a regrouping of German forces. He even knew the name of the operation – Barbarossa.

Frozen Wastes

Yet Stalin at first refused to believe what was happening. He had established a sophisticated intelligence network to give him long advance warning of a decision by Hitler to wage war in the frozen wastes of Russia. His key indicators were breathtakingly simple. For an army to survive the winter, every man would need to possess a thick sheepskin greatcoat. Soviet agents therefore kept a close watch for a sudden rise in the demand for sheepskins and a fall in the price of mutton as slaughter was stepped up. Meanwhile, other agents scoured rifle ranges for scraps of cloth used by German soldiers to clean their weapons. Soviet chemists then analysed them in order to find out whether the Germans had developed a gun oil which would not freeze in harsh weather. There was still no sign of such an oil – or of a non-freezing engine oil – in June 1941, so Stalin was convinced that Hitler had no intention of attacking him. Hitler would have his forces concentrated in France, or even fighting in England, as the Red Army cut off their only source of fuel oil, crashed into a virtually undefended Reich and then “liberated” the whole of Western Europe.

Hitler, of course, had not ordered such preparations because he had not planned on a war against Russia. Only in the spring of 1941 did intelligence reports of troop concentrations and Soviet moves to cut Germany’s oil lifeline with Rumania force Hitler to take the desperate chance of opening a second front with a hasty pre-emptive strike.

Initially at least, the gamble paid off. Caught in transit or crammed together in their own start-off positions, whole Soviet armies were annihilated. Most of the airforce was destroyed on the ground. The thousands of lightly armoured assault tanks were virtually helpless, and forced to operate in the roadless wastes of Russia they were easily out-manoeuvred by the Germans’ conventional cross-country tanks.

All this makes Icebreaker the definitive account of the build up to Operation Groza (“Thunderstorm”) – the Soviet conquest of Europe scheduled to begin early in the morning of Sunday 6 July 1941. Suvorov’s revelations about the massive expansion of the NKVD (the blood-soaked forerunner of the KGB) are particularly chilling: these killers would have moved behind the assault troops to liquidate “class enemies.” The Bolshevik torture chambers and death pits which claimed millions of victims in the enslaved nations of the East would have spread throughout the West as well.

With Germany and France under the Soviet jackboot, Italy and Spain would quickly have fallen too. And Stalin’s one million paratroopers would have made short work of seizing the airfields of southern England to clear the way for a full-scale invasion.

Lenin and his pupil Stalin never made any secret of their desire for a Second World War to establish a Communist Europe. For the fact that this monstrous plan failed, the pseudo-democrats, simpering priests and court historians have no-one to thank but Adolf Hitler. If it had not been for the man they love to hate, they would have been the first against the wall.
