‘interesting to say the least’

‘interesting to say the least’

The book that some people are already calling nebulous because they doubt its veracity and validity is called “The Nebula”.  Its three-page foreword is written by Wayne Madsen. The author is a former Belgian NATO AWACS command post officer and NATO Air Defense Officer. The book is published by Trine-Day.

The back cover says that the book provides “deep insights into the unseen but real forces” and “exposes a cabal which controls most of the money transfers worldwide as well as the highest political authorities.”

Donald Trump is featured in the last of four parts, particularly in chapter 19. There is an index and 22 appendices totalling fifty pages. There is a 3.5-page list of acronyms and abbreviations, a 3.5-page introduction, and a bibliography that lists 85 sources.

On page 201, in the epilogue, Walter Baeyens says “In these days of unbridled egocentric materialism, , power and money have become the only means and measure of all thingd. How they are acquired does not matter.”  In the pages preceding, he gives you a better sense of how they are acquired.

The kingpin of the Nebula was identified in the ATLAS Report, which can be found in both French and English in the appendix, as well as at https://isgp-studies.com/belgium-la-nebuleuse-atlas-dossier-and-dutroux-x-files, whose author is the first reviewer at Amazon and who appears to have his underwear in a knot because his work is neither credited nor makes an appearance in Baeyens’ book, The ATLAS Report can also be found  here:  https://zionistreport.com/2016/07/commentary-classified-belgian-police-report-nebula-receives-another-look/.
The ATLAS report was triggered by serial murders, enough of them that one needs a guide and additional references to get clear on their history. One involved Andre Cools, and then there were the Brabant murders, and a range of Gladio events, and they stretched all the way back to the murder of Julien Lahaut in 1950 whose sponsor (to use Drago’s template) Baeyens alleges (page 2) also attempted to derail investigations in the late 80’s into the the Brabant kills and the child abuse cases labeled “Dossier X”.  If this is beginning to sound familiar, read the book.
The kingpin, we are told on page 10, is a Grandmaster of the Jewish Lodge B’Nai B’rith, putting to rest one of the main points by the first Amazon reviewer who claims Baeyens went on an anti-Semitic binge “two-thirds” into the book.  But the Israeli maffiya are mentioned on the very first page (and after you finish reading this book you can join the global discussion about the criminalization of free speech).

Weapons, money and corruption are identified early and often.  There is no centering exclusively on Jewish or Israeli components of the global criminal cabal; the Vatican, Wall Street, banking, the Rothschilds, the the Russian-Jewish maffiya, the old Italian mafia, crime families, the OTO, the Federal Reserve, water and power utilities and corporations, big corporations, numerous governmental intelligence agencies, the Trilaterals, the Bilderbergers and the European Round Table all get their moments in the spotlight.
French historian Annie Lacroix-Riz and her book The Choice of Defeat make their first appearance on page 38 to point out how the German conquest of Northern France at the beginning of World War Two became “a walk in the park”.  Wikipedia of course has an entry on her; many others exist on the internet but tend naturally to be in her French language.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annie_Lacroix-Riz She is accused of being a communist sympathizer, but I guess we all have to call one another something, no?  In the world of Hegelian dialectic, in the end we’re either fascist or communist or dead or some combination thereof, Christianity and all major religions having been relegated to the trash heap of history, thought and choice by the eventual dictatorship that necessarily evolves under either choice. (Everyone is damned to pennilessness or some form of insignificance (if not death itself) if they fail to adhere to the dominant political centrality of the moment.)

(Everyone is damned to pennilessness or some form of insignificance (if not death itself) if they fail to adhere to the dominant political centrality of the moment.)
The history of the French Cagoule is well-documented, says Baeyens on page 39, where he lays out an organizational structure for the Synarchist organization which keeps the thugs and the killers on the fourth level, the technocrats who rationalize their acts on the third level, the very wealthy politically-neutral businessmen who bribe their way into politics (taking turns to infilitrate all parties large and small) on the second level, with the ideologues at the top. He notes that the horrible crimes they commit remain unprosecuted decades after the fact speak to the depth of the cover-up.
On page 43, it is said that the absolute power structure and its particular instruments can order assassinations, start wars and terrors campaigns, and impose complete silence.
The Synarchist “conspiracy theory” comes in immediately, as does a wide range of Freemasonry lodges starting with P2. Freemasonry comes into focus on pages 45-54. ( Did you know that Lyman Lemnitzer was a 32nd degree Mason of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite?)
Adam Weishaupt and his “papers” get a moment with his mantra “the ends justify the means”, and the means include usury, blackmail, the subjugation of the press, the destruction of relgiion (especially Christianity), corruption, sedition, terror, violence and perversion (including pedophilia, child sacrifice et alia which, in this book, are only peripherally mentioned as a primary tool of blackmail and an element in the over-arching occultism that preaches that men, being divine, do not need their immoral acts forgiven.
Chapter Five (entitled Nazism to Gladio) discusses the roles of John J. McCloy, the Bank of International Settlements, the Grey Wolves, and socialism, which brings us back to Andre Cools. The cabal does not care about religion, politics or nationalism, but only about itself. Chapter Six is about Iran-Contra, Gerald Bull, Marc Rich, and 9/11. Chapter Eight details the role of B’nai B’rith, the Bolsheviks, Trotskyism, communism, the Federal Reserve, alcohol and prohibition. Harry Hopkins, the birth of Israel, Iran-Contra, the Harriman family, Maurice Tempelsman and, again and again, the famous Felix Przedborski.
Chapter Ten talks about waste criminality, Chapter Eleven tells the amazing story of Major Jordan’s diary, and Chapter Thirteen discusses what happened to the Belgian royals during World War Two. Chapter 14 is about the Nazi underground (treated in much greater detail in other sources) but which mentions that Skorzeny was contracted by Mossad for the killing of a German scientist in 1962, and goes on to mention the influence of the Nazi underground on the history and future of North Africa and the Middle East. This “Geozentrale” is treated in more detail in Chapter 15. We’re talking about the maintenance of the tools and the global export of Nazi modes of terror.
Latin America and Carlos Lehder come into focus in Chapter 16, along with Gehlen, Barbie, and the Belgian drugs-for-arms trade through Antwerp and, soon enough, Maurice “Hank” Greenberg, AIG, Goldman Sachs and the Clintons. Part of the strategy of the Nazi movement in diaspora was the creation of the EU and its binding to the UK.  The Nazi infilitration of the Stasi and the KGB are mentioned, as well as trafficking in gold, artwrok, antiques, cars, drugs, AK-47s and “visas”.  Points of contact were created through the world including Indonesia, China, Saudi Arabia and Africa, all with links back to Belgium. Eventually Costa Rica becomes a centerpeice in the network.
Chapter 18 brings the reader through the world of Nazism, Zionism, NATO, terrorism, homosexual practices, pedophilia, Yale, Skull and Bones. mind control, merceneries, mobs, and the rituals of the special operations military community. Kay Griggs is the tour guide.
Chapter 19 introduces The Donald and the threat of the Jewish-Marxist alliance as it teamed up with Freemasonry and Protestantism in their common goal of the abolition of Christianity. Roy Cohn’s role is detailed. The Order of Malta is mentioned, as well as many of its Knights (Gehlen, the Dulles brothers, Bill Casey, William Colby, Clay Shaw, and thrre members of the Bush family). Baron Giulio Cesare Andrea Evola makes a guest appearance on page 173, bringing into focus the theme of an order based on violence, hierarchy, caste, race, myth, religion and ritual.
Chapter Twenty notes Lenin and his book Imperialism, the Highest Stage of Capitalism, brought into focus in the late 20th century with the reality that “the financial industry had definitely become the dominant force of global economic activity. To make a fortune, you no longer needed to start up a production plant. You simply speculated your way to riches…. Political regimes have become mere instruments of the global banking cartel.  Wherever governments failt to hand over the riches of their nation, politicians are replaced by technocrats [who] “straighten out” things in favor of the banks, while the press and the media are seeing to it that the masses remain largely uninformed and constantly entertained.”
Chapter Twenty-One is about the Muslim connection, the role of Turkic studies expert Gerhard von Mende, as well as Theodor Oberlander (aptly named.., did he date Frau Lebensraum?), who “saw great opportunities in the use of Muslim extremism for the re-unification of Germany and the re-annexation of former German territories”.  Of 9/11, Baeyens says “the 9/11 pictures, masterpieces of Hollywood propaganda, stunning and hypnotizing, were like a mix of cheap Godzilla movie scenes and a TV ad.  Being constantly bombarded with these terrible visual imprints, the public at large, as expected, soon acknowledged two basic facts. First, this was an act of war against America. Second, that Muslim extremists did it….” Further, that the new building, the creation of architect Daniel Libeskind, “could be understood as another Holocaust memorial on US soil, dedicated to the victory of money over truth” and that, post 9/11, the “uncontested state of affairs [of Pax Americana and the US as global enforcer now under attack triggering Article V of the NATO pact] made the acquiescing European nations accomplices of the planned American criminal wars in the Middle East. Finally, Baeyens cites and quotes Max Keiser on the option purchases, ABS, Buzzy Krongard, and Deutsche Bank:

“… the noise which occurred between Baltimore, New York City and Langley was interesting, as you can imagine, to say the least.”

I am reading a book that I should have read in high school. It falls into line behind another book I should have read in high school, and a third one in which I am making slow progress. (I’m listening.) 

http://i.imgur.com/hhd158k.jpg

I went to a very good high school and had one very very good teacher for AP English who was an Army veteran and who introduced me to writing, literature, and World War One war poems in a way that no one else did.

My AP History teacher was a veteran of World War One (his arm was permanently damaged in battle and he wore an early prosthetic forearm in a sling, inert and dysfunctional, perhaps for me the next level in empathy after Farragut’s Theorem).

Either one of these live human beings who taught me on a daily basis might have stood in for the fictional high school instructor of History and Moral Philosophy described in Starship Troopers.

The author described high school classes I wish were available to me, but weren’t. The course in survival preparation described in Tunnel in the Sky is unlike anything offered even today by small companies of preppers and former soldiers; the final exam was its climax.

 

Heinlein’s Starship Troopers is topically resurgent online today and has also spin off movies, role-playing games, and more.  But here today I’m focused on the book and the philosophies.

And the reason that I’m reading this book and looking at the phenomenon of its resurgence is simple: we’re going to war.

And we have not yet begun to even glimpse the final exam for that course.

We’ve been at war for a long time. We are a warring nation.  We like war.  Many of our elite get rich through war.  They foster and incite violence, conflict and hatred regularly. There is a long tradition among the extremely wealthy of funding both sides of a war at the same time. They probably get some form of perverse enjoyment out of the sacrifices of humans to their fantasies of power. Henry Kissinger has a quote or two about these things. Mike Rivero has published an article on war and bankers. Today’s alternative news will bring you forecasts of impending war with Russia (and perhaps China, or both).  Many people are aware of and concerned about the Soros-driven waves of Islamist refugees into Europe. The EU and NATO are described as the modern-day version of the Third Reich.

Others are concerned about waves of immigrants from various countries and cultures arriving via the US southern border. Imigration out of Asia into the Pacific Northwest has been forecast. War, weather and color revolutions have put a lot of peole on the march.

Civil war is forecast; the CONUS military exercises like Jade Helm have been widely discussed. Political change and degradation of rights enumerated under the Constitutiuon, itself widely degraded and no longer deemed worthy of protection by many, will be visible on the streets of the nation’s Capitol as a new President is inaurgurated (or perhaps assassinated, if you read some people).

So an old piece of science fiction that isn’t much younger than I am and that describes political and other virtues of military discipline and training comes into sharp focus for an individual concerned about the well-being of his family.

“War is not violence and killing, pure and simple; war is controlled violence, for a purpose. The purpose of war is to support your government’s decisions by force. The purpose is never to kill the enemy just to be killing him . . . but to make him do what you want him to do. Not killing . . . but controlled and purposeful violence. But it’s not your business or mine to decide the purpose of the control. It’s never a soldier’s business to decide when or where or how–or why–he fights; that belongs to the statesmen and the generals. The statesmen decide why and how much; the generals take it from there and tell us where and when and how. We supply the violence; other people–“older and wiser heads,” as they say–supply the control.”

“LANCE CPL. STEVEN West steps into a remote enemy hideout clad in a 350-pound exoskeleton, sensors piercing the darkness and displaying digital info on his helmet visor, until a shock of static feedback knocks him to the dirty floor. A band of locals surround him with pipes and rebar. “The feedback stopped, leaving his ears ringing, and grainy video feed warped back into view as he was struck again. And again.”

This scene isn’t pulled from the latest Clancy-esque techno-thriller, but a short story written as part of a new Marine Corps exercise using science fiction to think about possible threats 15 to 30 years in the future.

“Water’s a Fightin’ Word” recounts what happens when a squad of Marines on a humanitarian mission in Africa gets surrounded during a global freshwater shortage. The author slips in glimpses of military technology in its infancy today, such as the exoskeleton, electromagnetic pulse weapons, and combat-ready robots, and combines it with likely geopolitical scenarios, such as conflict over water and other environmental resources.

Officers at the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory/Futures Directorate in Quantico, Va., came up with the idea last year to host a sci-fi contest to spur creativity, as well as get uniformed Marines to conceive of threats in a different way. A total of 84 entries were narrowed down to 18 finalists, who were paired with professional sci-fi writers—including “World War Z’s” Max Brooks—during a workshop co-hosted by the Atlantic Council. After months of editing, the top three stories were collected in “Science Fiction Futures: Marine Corps Security Environment Forecast 2030-2045″ and published online [ http://www.mcwl.marines.mil/Portals/34/Documents/FuturesAssessment/Marine%20Corps%20Science%20Fiction%20Futures%202016_12_9.pdf?ver=2016-12-09-105855-733 ].

The stories share common themes of political chaos, a rising China, a less-powerful and more inward-looking United States, conflicts over environmental resources, and the growth of megacities in the developing world. For Marines, who are the first US boots on the ground in the toughest situations, the toughest challenges may stem from the latter.

“It will not be like Fallujah or Hue City,” said Marine Lt. Col. Patrick Kirchner, citing intense block-by-block conflicts in Iraq 2004 and Vietnam 1968. “But more like Manhattan, and not on a weekend.” Kirchner’s comments came at a panel on the sci-fi Marine warfighting project at the Atlantic Council in Washington. “You can’t pick out the enemy and you can’t just shoot him. You’ve got to figure out how to clear a skyscraper. You can’t just hang green t-shirts or chem-lites in the window and say it’s clear. We have to find out how to figure out this kind of situations.”

“Robert Heinlein’s ‘Starship Troopers’ is the only novel on the required reading list at the Army War College and Annapolis for the study of small force tactics.” 

“Small Unit Tactics” by Will Serwetman is available as a free download on the Internet.

On YouTube, you can find hours of assessment by major national think tanks on Russian military capabilities, hybrid warfare, urban warfare and the growth of mega-cities, and I probably only scratched that surface

YouTube is also resplendent with videos on squad tactics, urban warfare techniques, land navigation, and more.  Books and classes are available on community squad formation, how to conduct local “intel”, etc.  In today’s world, whether in the military or on the home front, we must consider the role and presence of women.

Preparing for war has become part of our culture. 

Somebody wants to bring combat upon you.

Are you ready for it?

Heinlein’s Starship Troopers is a story about boot camp and military duty.

“COMBAT – that means life and death with people actively seeking to destroy you.”  Learning how to survive combat  is a serious business involving “the teaching of serious skills in a dynamic, live-fire environment. It takes tough men [and women[ to have first acquired the skills in order to teach them and it takes tough men [and women] to maintain order, discipline and safety in an environment to teach those skills.”

“… Advanced sensors, air/land/sea vehicles that can stay on alert for extended periods of time, and immediate battle damage assessment have changed the rules of warfare — as well as what is considered acceptable collateral damage.

All these factors make it easier to control violence. But it’s up to the politicians to tell the military what purpose the violence serves, and that hasn’t gotten any easier. Sun Tzu himself warned about it, saying, “He will win who has military capacity and is not interfered with by the sovereign.” However, Sun Tzu never had to deal with satellite communications, a 24-hour news cycle, or a pesky thing called democracy.”

8 Military-to-Civilian Career Transition Tips from Starship Troopers

Oct 21, 2015

Robert Heinlein’s science fiction classic Starship Troopers, published in December 1959, is a permanent fixture on military reading lists among the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force. Starship Troopers describes how Johnnie Rico starts as a private in the Mobile Infantry, an Earth-based military force that serves as a galactic and heavily armed raiding force. The Mobile Infantry was similar to a WWII Marine Raider force or the Army Rangers of WWII – high on firepower, shock tactics, and infantry force.  The essence of Starship Troopers was a fight for survival of the human race across the galaxy.  Humans were threatened by a race of intelligent, highly skilled, and ferocious spider-like creatures (“Bugs”).  Standing in their way, the front line of Earth’s defense forces, was the Mobile Infantry.  The Mobile Infantry could be considered as interstellar Marines, transported from plant to planet in huge starships and then “parachuted” from planetary orbit.  On the ground, the Mobile Infantry fought in incredible, 2,000 lb, powered, armored suits.

Starship Troopers showed us that, despite the technology, being in the Infantry was still the Infantry with constant hard work, impossible odds, and zero thanks.  The Mobile Infantry fought and trained as Infantry has always done: outnumbered, in the cold and dark, and against incredible odds to save the human race and each other.  Starship Troopers made its way into the modern military lexicon more than a decade ago, most notably during the U.S. involvement in Somalia, where local Somali militia were referenced as “Skinnies” in comparison to one of the antagonist militaries that the Earth forces fought against in the opening chapters of the book.

Robert Heinlein’s Starship Troopers is a great refresher on some of the truly vital and critical skill sets that veterans bring to organizations in their post-military careers. If you are on the first day or your 10th year of your military transition, be sure to look down this list to contribute all you can.  There are 8 key insights that matter to how effective military veterans can be in business and their second careers.

1  The Entire Team Works On The Primary Mission.

The motto of the Mobile Infantry is, “Everybody drops and everybody fights.” On numerous drops, all of Rico’s unit went into combat.  Regular soldiers, but also cooks, administrative personnel, and even Chaplain’s – everyone fought.  From an organizational standpoint, this was the sheer genius from the Mobile Infantry. Literally, 100% of the organization was dedicated to its primary purpose of combat. The concept of “everybody fights” was a simple and valuable reminder that the majority of your organization should be dedicated to its mission.

Relevance to Military-To-Civilian Career Transition.  When you come into a new company or organization, how much of your job should be dedicated to doing what your company does for its customers? If your primary job reinforce safety standards on oil rigs, then how much of your time do you actually spend enforcing and training on oil rig safety standards? In the military and in the corporate world, it can be very, very easy to be distracted by activities that take time and effort, but do not contribute to the primary purpose of your organization towards its customers.

1  Performance in The Present, Not In The Past, Is All Important

Every person in the mobile infantry, and society at large, was judged by what they did, how they performed, and how well they followed orders. This focus on performance as the sole benchmark of personal value weas refreshing. In Heinlein’s sci-fi future, you could be rich or poor, from a great family or a questionable one, or have a PhD or a high school degree, and the only thing that mattered in the mobile infantry was well you performed.  In business, you can have a great corporate culture but if the product was bad, the customer service ineffective, or the company was not innovative, then you failed.  For both business and the military, performance was everything.

Relevance to Military-To-Civilian Career Transition.  Performance was a central driving criteria for veterans because no matter that you were a crewmember on a destroyer or an Apache Helicopter pilot, what mattered was how well you performed your current job. Don’t worry about how your background compares to others in your organization. Worry about how well you perform and always seek to improve.

1  Difference And Diversity Is A Non-Issue In The Modern Workplace

Starship Troopers gets some diversity and gender issues right and others completely wrong.  Gender, physical disability, and race played significant roles throughout the book. Women were allowed to perform all combat roles, even direct ground combat. However, there were barely any women in the Mobile Infantry because they were better suited for more vital military roles, like being starship pilots, serving in military intelligence, or weapons development. Women, it turns out, were even more valuable than men in effective combat performance and outcomes. The most important, strategic positions were reserved for women.

What Heinlein missed was the concept that a woman would want a direct combat position?  If Heinlein had ever met Ronda Rousey, then the whole Mobile Infantry might have been women.  The vast majority of Rico’s teachers were disabled combat veterans.  His Strategy instructor was the best military strategist who only happened to be blind. If anything, according to Rico, it made him a better strategist. Based on the concept of superior job performance that permeates the book, disability was an illogical reason to exclude anyone, because everyone’s value was based on how they performed.

Relevance to Military-To-Civilian Career Transition.  For military veterans, we are used to dealing with gender, diversity, and other issues on a daily basis.  Military members, like the Mobile Infantry, are used to dealing with different races and religions.  Veterans will need to work with other non-veteran civilians to have their military service fully understood and how it contributes to their current workplace.  Veterans will need to strive at times to be open and understanding with others as they explain and demonstrate the value of their service for their employer’s success.  The lesson from Starship Troopers was that when an organization unites under a compelling mission, truly focuses on performance, then difference does not apply.

“… A scientifically verifiable theory of morals must be rooted in the individual’s instinct to survive–and nowhere else!–and must correctly describe the hierarchy of survival, note the motivations at each level, and resolve all conflicts. We have such a theory now; we can solve any moral problem, on any level. Self-interest, love of family, duty to country, responsibility toward the human race . . . . The basis of all morality is duty, a concept with the same relation to group that self-interest has to individual.”

Robert Heinlein, Starship Troopers

 

 

 

 

If it is true, as Heinlein says, that “The noblest fate that a man can endure is to place his own mortal body between his loved home and the war’s desolation”, then a lot of us have a lot of thinking and work to do, even those of us who are physically impaired, elderly, or otherwise not inclined to sign up for some physically-punishing romp up and down some hills in the Appalachians, the Rockies, or even the flatlands.

With or without training, with or without armaments, in forthcoming wars, civil or otherwise, you will have to be mindful, self-aware, alert, prepared, and trained in the use and maintenance of your arms, your legs, your heart, your lungs, and your brain.

“It is a basic function of self defense and your job as an adult member of your family/ community. It is not a responsibility to be handed off the the police, or the State. When you do, it is all too easy to take that responsibility and capability away from you entirely, by disarming you and making you incapable of self defense. Whether by physically disarming you, or brainwashing your mind, you are gelded.”

https://www.maxvelocitytactical.com/2015/04/starship-troopers-thoughts-1/ 

Isn’t that in parallel with one of my most favored quotes from Tim Gallwey in Summon The Magic ?

One’s true capacity for moving,

or being moved, can be achieved

only when one’s commitment to others

is in fact connected to and derived from

his primary commitment to himself. 

When we find this kind of alignment of purpose,

there is a harmony of motivation

that can provide the fuel and clarity

to overcome great obstacles

in the pursuit of great challenge.

from The Inner Game of Work, by W. Timothy Gallwey

 

If your nation unleashes an environment — whether or not you are its target or merely it witness — of engineered super-soldiers, the use of drones, EMP and other directed-energy weapons, artificial intelligence and cyberwar, robotic military vehicles, drones and neuroweapons, are you ready?

Are you left of bang ?

Authority

By now, you may have seen this:

http://goodnewscommunications.net/you-are-mentally-ill-if-you-question-authority-report-states/ 

[…] an “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior,” symptoms include questioning authority, negativity, defiance, argumentativeness, and being easily annoyed.

Music fanfare:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVgs38tpMhs (6:45) 

 

Here’s why I am angry about authority:

I have a deep sense of having been betrayed.

Everything I have been told by authority since I can remember has tuned out to be a lie.

 

Were my parents uninformed, deluded, in denial?  I’ll be kind and say that they were misled. I could be more harsh and say that they were complicit, at least through their own willful inattention.  That they were the victims of a poor education, or from having drunk the Koolaid, is a possibility.  But my father grew up within rock-throwing distance of Yale, and my step-mother belonged to a family whose patriarch is alleged to have been involved in MK-Ultra ritual sex abuse circles.

Can I prove that?  No, the references have been scrubbed off the Internet, but his picture grabbed from that article, the one that sent autonomic shivers of recognition down my persona the first time I saw it, still stares out at me from deep inside my hard drive. Was I directly involved?  Not to my conscious knowledge.  Indeed, it can be argued that my step-mother did what she could to keep me safely away from such depredations, and perhaps that is the deep dark inner family secret no one wants to talk about. But she still whupped me regularly, and abused me psychologically, and one person with the requisite experience and knowledge told me one thing she had done went dangerously near a line that no adult should ever cross.

Were my teachers uninformed?  No, but individuals can’t do much in a system in which they are constantly watched, guided, harangued, and given boundaries.

Were my community officials complicit? Perhaps, but complicity is the group norm; otherwise your earning potential, career or lives will be made to suffer. We were all good Germans at one point in time or another.

We were the recipients of that golden glow that emanated from post-World-War-II economics; don’t rock the boat when the sea is still and placid.

Was the truth about the Illuminati and Skull and Bones available to them?  I didn’t learn about this stuff until I was into my 50’s.  Why didn’t they question what had happened in Dallas?  In the kitchen of the Ambassador Hotel? On the balcony of the Lorraine Motel? In the Gulf of Tonkin? The communal elders  dutifully packed their first-born to a quick death or a lifetime of hell on the say-so of an obviously corrupt leadership. Their children did the same a generation later.

The hints that there was a hidden structure to American polity were available, though suppressed and, I’d guess, ridiculed. The experience of American politics and culture has been to move to the middle, to be herded. Although I didn’t discovered it until he died in the late 80’s, my father had two textbooks on propaganda on his bookshelf (neatly titled for the field of public relations).

But the legislative history of the great snookering was available to them; at that point in time, I was still two decades or more from being born, but the creature came out of the seaside swamps where the robber barons secretly gathered (and the requisite legislation) occurred on their watch (albeit with covert means and subterfuge).

[More recently we were told by the Speaker of the House that Congress had to pass the bill in order to know what was in it.]

Off they went to another war, to Federal income taxes, to a debt-based system run by a bunch of foreigners. Emma Lazarus, that sheltered aristocratic Jewish poetess daughter of an Ashkenazi, and Augustus Bartholdi, a French Freemason who married his wife in that same town celebrated by Lazarus in other poems, sold us a trojan horse known as Liberty Enlightening The World.

Lazarus was “an important forerunner of the Zionist movement. She argued for the creation of a Jewish homeland thirteen years before Theodor Herzl began to use the term Zionism.[12]]

Liberty was made gentle, the French themes of revolution and armed mobs having been made to evaporate by the idea’s progenitor, French law professor and politician Édouard René de Laboulaye, according to the history published in 2003.

Authority in the forms of political, social and cultural leadership made it fashionable, even de rigeur, to be something other than what you held yourself out to be.  (This while I attended a school with the motto Nosce Te Ipsum. )

This started with the hypocrisy of the church-goers, extended into those who purported to be of various religions but were really godless and intent on destroying spiritual faith, jumped into the world of politics where it appeared to be (erroneously) an occasional aberration, oozed its way into academia, and finally subsumed politics and diplomacy to the point where the only functional approaches in use today involve theatrical performances of news-making events, and false flags. Open manipulation of personal sovereignty through MK-Ultra-like adaptation of pharmaceutical and psychological/psychiatric intervention was still an unknown but has now come sharply into focus.  On one hand, we have robots to do the work and we have kidnapped and trafficked adolescents to provide sex and other services. The latter, of course, is in the news as a service provided by governmental intelligence operatives to royal families, presidential-caliber politicians, and the like for the mans of controlling them, but I am certain our parents knew of such things; they simply averted their eyes, covered ours, but made available the salacious by-products.

In many cases, our governments have been actively engaged in profiting from and providing to the composers the deadly products of narcotic drugs, the illicit types and those prescribed by the friendly people in white lab coats, samples easily provided in bulk by BigPharma, usually delivered by some handsome and attractive “rep” along with a pricey dinner and some high-class marketing handouts.

“In government, the term authority is often used interchangeably with power. However, their meanings differ: while power is defined as “the ability to influence somebody to do something that he/she would not have done”, authority refers to a claim of legitimacy, the justification and right to exercise that power.”

As children here in the USofA, we were immersed in the history and verbiage of the Declaration of Independence and brought to a state of veneration and worship for it and the government it eventually birthed. Right behind that was an almost equal veneration of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, both now badly eroded to the point of absence, like a barrier beach in the face of waves of assault by people who seized power through stolen elections, subterfuge, and the sheer power of massed money, much of it itself illicitly gotten through investment trickeries, cheating, or flat out control of the system of currency to the point where quarter-million-dollar loans at the rapscallion rate of far less than a percent are given out privately to friends like an extra slosh of a fine wine at a cocktail party in the Hamptons.

No such loan was made available to the commoners, of course; we had to pay 29.9% APR for the several hundreds we charged on one of their credit cards when we had no other choice, and then deal with the humiliation of repeated phone calls from their hired attorney/collector until we acquiesced with a check drawn from savings. But any dumb pumpkin could turn a handsome profit with a quarter-million at 0.0001% interest in a few short weeks, if only by paying off their house instead of being foreclosed upon.

“… authority has become a subject of research in a variety of empirical settings: the family (parental authority), small groups (informal authority of leadership), intermediate organizations such as schools, churches, armies, industries and bureaucracies (organizational and bureaucratic authorities), and society-wide or inclusive organizations….”

Where were these people in the last twenty years? How was their silence and complicity bought? What legitimacy (especially true of the mainstream media) can they now command?  They are apparently all out watching celebrating the use of “naked force exercised on false pretenses” by watching “atrocity porn”

A more recent and immediate example is that the condo manager in the condo-glump where I last resided insisted that solar power hadn’t yet been proven to be of value, but this report is just the most recent indicator that she was lying, incompetent, or at worst uninformed.

To appear to be ignorant while maintaining that others are mentally ill because they are better informed is a sign of duplicitousness, or psychopathology, or self-delusion.

UNITED AMERICANS FORMED TO FIGHT COMMUNISM

In 1920 the organization United Americans was founded. It was limited to citizens of the United States and planned for five million members, “whose sole purpose would be to combat the teachings of the socialists, communists, I.W.W., Russian organizations and radical farmers societies.”

In other words, United Americans was to fight all those institutions and groups believed to be anticapitalist.

The officer’s of the preliminary organization established to build up United Americans were Allen Walker of the Guaranty Trust Company; Daniel Willard, president of the Baltimore 8c Ohio Railroad; H. H. Westinghouse, of Westinghouse Air Brake Company; and Otto H. Kahn, of Kuhn, Loeb 8c Company and American International Corporation. These Wall Streeters were backed up by assorted university presidents arid Newton W. Gilbert (former governor of the Philippines). Obviously, United Americans was, at first glance, exactly the kind of organization that establishment capitalists would be expected to finance and join. Its formation should have brought no great surprise.

On the other hand, as we have already seen, these financiers were also deeply involved in supporting the new Soviet regime in Russia — although this support was behind the scenes, recorded only in government files, and not to be made public for 50 years. As part of United Americans, Walker, Willard, Westinghouse, and Kahn were playing a double game. Otto H. Kahn, a founder of the anti-Communist organization, was reported by the British socialist J. H. Thomas as having his “face towards the light.” Kahn wrote the preface to Thomas’s book. In 1924 Otto Kahn addressed the League for Industrial Democracy and professed common objectives with this activist socialist group (see page 49). The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad (Willard’s employer) was active in the development of Russia during the 1920s. Westinghouse in 1920, the year United Americans was founded, was operating a plant in Russia that had been exempted from nationalization. And the role of Guaranty Trust has already been minutely described.

UNITED AMERICANS REVEALS “STARTLING DISCLOSURES” ON REDS

In March 1920 the New York Times headlined an extensive, detailed scare story about Red invasion of the United States within two years, an invasion which was to be financed by $20 million of Soviet funds “obtained by the murder and robbery of the Russian nobility.”2

United Americans had, it was revealed, made a survey of “radical activities” in the United States, and had done so in its role as an organization formed to “preserve the Constitution of the United States with the representative form of government and the right of individual possession which the Constitution provides.”

Further, the survey, it was proclaimed, had the backing of the executive board, “including Otto H. Kahn, Allen Walker of the Guaranty Trust Company, Daniel Willard,” and others. The survey asserted that

the radical leaders are confident of effecting a revolution within two years, that the start is to be made in New York City with a general strike, that Red leaders have predicted much bloodshed and that the Russian Soviet Government has contributed $20,000,000 to the American radical movement.

The Soviet gold shipments to Guaranty Trust in mid-1920 (540 boxes of three poods each) were worth roughly $15,000,000 (at $20 a troy ounce), and other gold shipments through Robert Dollar and Olof Aschberg brought the total very close to $20 million. The information about Soviet gold for the radical movement was called “thoroughly reliable” and was “being turned over to the Government.” The Reds, it was asserted, planned to starve New York into submission within four days:

Meanwhile the Reds count on a financial panic within the next few weeks to help their cause along. A panic would cause distress among the workingmen and thus render them more susceptible to revolution doctrine.

The United Americans’ report grossly overstated the number of radicals in the United States, at first tossing around figures like two or five million and then settling for precisely 3,465,000 members in four radical organizations. The report concluded by emphasizing the possibility of bloodshed and quoted “Skaczewski, President of the International Publishing Association, otherwise the Communist Party,  [who] boasted that.the time was coming soon when the Communists would destroy utterly the present form of society.”

In brief, United Americans published a report without substantiating evidence, designed to scare the man in the street into panic: The significant point of course is that this is the same group that was responsible for protecting and subsidizing, indeed assisting, the Soviets so they could undertake these same plans.


CONCLUSIONS CONCERNING UNITED AMERICANS

Is this a case of the right hand not knowing what the left hand was doing? Probably not. We are talking about heads of companies, eminently successful companies at that. So United Americans was probably a ruse to divert public — and official — attention from the subterranean efforts being made to gain entry to the Russian market.

United Americans is the only documented example known to this writer of an organization assisting the Soviet regime and also in the forefront of opposition to the Soviets. This is by no means an inconsistent course of action, and further research should at least focus on the following aspects:

(a) Are there other examples of double-dealing by influential groups generally known as the establishment?

(b) Can these examples be extended into other areas? For example, is there evidence that labor troubles have been instigated by these groups?

(c) What is the ultimate purpose of these pincer tactics? Can they be related to the Marxian axiom: thesis versus antithesis yields synthesis? [The Hegelian dialectic which was at the root of the organization founded by Adam Weishaupt and included Marx and Rothschild in its formative enoturage; see Perfectibilists.] It is a puzzle why the Marxist movement would attack capitalism head-on if its objective was a Communist world and if it truly accepted the dialectic. If the objective is a Communist world — that is, if communism is the desired synthesis — and capitalism is the thesis, then something apart from capitalism or communism has to be antithesis. Could therefore capitalism be the thesis and communism the antithesis, with the objective of the revolutionary groups and their backers being a synthesizing of these two systems into some world system yet undescribed?

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York was at 120 Broadway. The vehicle for this pro-Bolshevik activity was American International Corporation — at 120 Broadway. AIC views on the Bolshevik regime were requested by Secretary of State Robert Lansing only a few weeks after the revolution began, and Sands, executive secretary of AIC, could barely restrain his enthusiasm for the Bolshevik cause. Ludwig Martens, the Soviet’s first ambassador, had been vice president of Weinberg & Posner, which was also located at 120-Broadway. Guaranty Trust Company was next door at 140 Broadway but Guaranty Securities Co. was at 120 Broadway. In 1917 Hunt, Hill & Betts was at 120 Broadway, and Charles B. Hill of this firm was the negotiator in the Sun Yat-sen dealings. John MacGregor Grant Co., which was financed by Olof Aschberg in Sweden and Guaranty Trust in the United States, and which was on the Military Intelligence black list, was at 120 Broadway. The Guggenheims and the executive heart of General Electric (also interested in American International) were at 120 Broadway. We find it therefore hardly surprising that the Bankers Club was also at 120 Broadway, on the top floor (the thirty-fourth).

It is significant that support for the Bolsheviks did not cease with consolidation of the revolution; therefore, this support cannot be wholly explained in terms of the war with Germany. The American-Russian syndicate formed in 1918 to obtain concessions in Russia was backed by the White, Guggenheim, and Sinclair interests. Directors of companies controlled by these three financiers included Thomas W. Lamont (Guaranty Trust), William Boyce Thompson (Federal Reserve Bank), and John Reed’s employer Harry Payne Whitney (Guaranty Trust). This strongly suggests that the syndicate was formed to cash in on earlier support for the Bolshevik cause in the revolutionary period. And then we found that Guaranty Trust financially backed the Soviet Bureau in New York in 1919.

The first really concrete signal that previous political and financial support was paying off came in 1923 when the Soviets formed their first international bank, Ruskombank. Morgan associate Olof Aschberg became nominal head of this Soviet bank; Max May, a vice president of Guaranty Trust, became a director of Ruskom-bank, and the Ruskombank promptly appointed Guaranty Trust Company its U.S. agent.


THE EXPLANATION FOR THE UNHOLY ALLIANCE

What motive explains this coalition of capitalists and Bolsheviks?

Russia was then — and is today — the largest untapped market in the world. Moreover, Russia, then and now, constituted the greatest potential competitive threat to American industrial and financial supremacy. (A glance at a world map is sufficient to spotlight the geographical difference between the vast land mass of Russia and the smaller United States.) Wall Street must have cold shivers when it visualizes Russia as a second super American industrial giant.

But why allow Russia to become a competitor and a challenge to U.S. supremacy? In the late nineteenth century, Morgan/Rockefeller, and Guggenheim had demonstrated their monopolistic proclivities. In Railroads and Regulation 1877-1916 Gabriel Kolko has demonstrated how the railroad owners, not the farmers, wanted state control of railroads in order to preserve their monopoly and abolish competition. So the simplest explanation of our evidence is that a syndicate of Wall Street financiers enlarged their monopoly ambitions and broadened horizons on a global scale. The gigantic Russian market was to be converted into a captive market and a technical colony to be exploited by a few high-powered American financiers and the corporations under their control. What the Interstate Commerce Commission and the Federal Trade Commission under the thumb of American industry could achieve for that industry at home, a planned socialist government could achieve for it abroad — given suitable support and inducements from Wall Street and Washington, D.C.

Finally, lest this explanation seem too radical, remember that it was Trotsky who appointed tsarist generals to consolidate the Red Army; that it was Trotsky who appealed for American officers to control revolutionary Russia and intervene in behalf of the Soviets; that it was Trotsky who squashed first the libertarian element in the Russian Revolution and then the workers and peasants; and that recorded history totally ignores the 700,000-man Green Army composed of ex-Bolsheviks, angered at betrayal of the revolution, who fought the Whites and the Reds. In other words, we are suggesting that the Bolshevik Revolution was an alliance of statists: statist revolutionaries and statist financiers aligned against the genuine revolutionary libertarian elements in Russia.3

‘The question now in the readers’ minds must be, were these bankers also secret Bolsheviks? No, of course not. The financiers were without ideology. It would be a gross misinterpretation to assume that assistance for the Bolshevists was ideologically motivated, in any narrow sense. The financiers were power-motivated and therefore assisted any political vehicle that would give them an entree to power: Trotsky, Lenin, the tsar, Kolchak, Denikin — all received aid, more or less. All, that is, but those who wanted a truly free individualist society.

Neither was aid restricted to statist Bolsheviks and statist counter-Bolsheviks. John P. Diggins, in Mussolini and Fascism: The View from America,4 has noted in regard to Thomas Lamont of Guaranty Trust that

Of all American business leaders, the one who most vigorously patronized the cause of Fascism was Thomas W. Lamont. Head of the powerful J.P. Morgan banking network, Lamont served as something of a business consultant for the government of Fascist Italy.

Lamont secured a $100 million loan for Mussolini in 1926 at a particularly crucial time for the Italian dictator. We might remember too that the director of Guaranty Trust was the father of Corliss Lamont, a domestic Communist. This evenhanded approach to the twin totalitarian systems, communism and fascism, was not confined to the Lamont family. For example, Otto Kahn, director of American International Corporation and of Kuhn, Leob & Co., felt sure that “American capital invested in Italy will find safety, encouragement, opportunity and reward.”5 This is the same Otto Kahn who lectured the socialist League of Industrial Democracy in 1924 that its objectives were his objectives.6 They differed only — according to Otto Kahn — over the means of achieving these objectives.

Ivy Lee, Rockefeller’s public relations man, made similar pronouncements, and was responsible for selling the Soviet regime to the gullible American public in the late 1920s. We also have observed that Basil Miles, in charge of the Russian desk at the State Department and a former associate of William Franklin Sands, was decidedly helpful to the businessmen promoting Bolshevik causes; but in 1923 the same Miles authored a profascist article, “Italy’s Black Shirts and Business.”7 “Success of the Fascists is an expression of Italy’s youth,” wrote Miles while glorifying the fascist movement and applauding its esteem for American business.


THE MARBURG PLAN

The Marburg Plan, financed by Andrew Carnegie’s ample heritage, was produced in the early years of the twentieth century. It suggests premeditation for this kind of superficial schizophrenia, which in fact masks an integrated program of power acquisition: “What then if Carnegie and his unlimited wealth, the international financiers and the Socialists could be organized in a movement to compel the formation of a league to enforce peace.”8

The governments of the world, according to the Marburg Plan, were to be socialized while the ultimate power would remain in the hands of the international financiers “to control its councils and enforce peace [and so] provide a specific for all the political ills of mankind.”9

This idea was knit with other elements with similar objectives. Lord Milner in England provides the transatlantic example of banking interests recognizing the virtues and possibilities of Marxism. Milner was a banker, influential in British wartime policy, and pro-Marxist.10 In New York the socialist “X” club was founded in 1903. It counted among its members not only the Communist Lincoln Steffens, the socialist William English Walling, and the Communist banker Morris Hillquit, but also John Dewey, James T. Shotwell, Charles Edward Russell, and Rufus Weeks (vice president of New York Life Insurance Company). The annual meeting of the Economic Club in the Astor Hotel, New York, witnessed socialist speakers. In 1908, when A. Barton Hepburn, president of Chase National Bank, was president of the Economic Club, the main speaker was the aforementioned Morris Hillquit, who “had abundant opportunity to preach socialism to a gathering which represented wealth and financial interests.”11

From these unlikely seeds grew the modern internationalist movement, which included not only the financiers Carnegie, Paul Warburg, Otto Kahn, Bernard Baruch, and Herbert Hoover, but also the Carnegie Foundation and its progeny International Conciliation. [And  Cord and Mary Pinchot Meyer….] The trustees of Carnegie were, as we have seen, prominent on the board of American International Corporation. In 1910 Carnegie donated $10 million to found the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and among those on the board of trustees were Elihu Root (Root Mission to Russia, 1917), Cleveland H. Dodge (a financial backer of President Wilson), George W. Perkins (Morgan partner), G. J. Balch (AIC and Amsinck), R. F. Herrick (AIC), H. W. Pritchett (AIC), and other Wall Street luminaries. Woodrow Wilson came under the powerful influence of — and indeed was financially indebted to — this group of internationalists. As Jennings C. Wise has written, “Historians must never forget that Woodrow Wilson… made it possible for Leon Trotsky to enter Russia with an American passport.”12

But Leon Trotsky also declared himself an internationalist. We have remarked with some interest his high-level internationalist connections, or at least friends, in Canada. Trotsky then was not pro-Russian, or pro-Allied, or pro-German, as many have tried to make him out to be. Trotsky was for world revolution, for world dictatorship; he was, in one word, an internationalist.13 Bolshevists and bankers have then this significant common ground — internationalism. Revolution and international finance are not at all inconsistent if the result of revolution is to establish more centralized authority. International finance prefers to deal with central governments. The last thing the banking community wants is laissez-faire economy and decentralized power because these would disperse power.

This, therefore, is an explanation that fits the evidence. This handful of bankers and promoters was not Bolshevik, or Communist, or socialist, or Democrat, or even American. Above all else these men wanted markets, preferably captive international markets — and a monopoly of the captive world market as the ultimate goal. They wanted markets that could be exploited monopolistically without fear of competition from Russians, Germans, or anyone else — including American businessmen outside the charmed circle. This closed group was apolitical and amoral. In 1917, it had a single-minded objective — a captive market in Russia, all presented under, and intellectually protected by, the shelter of a league to enforce the peace.

Wall Street did indeed achieve its goal. American firms controlled by this syndicate were later to go on and build the Soviet Union, and today are well on their way to bringing the Soviet military-industrial complex into the age of the computer. [The book was published in 1974 and, of course, Russia and its peoples are no longer deficient in information technology.]

Today the objective is still alive and well. John D. Rockefeller expounds it in his book The Second American Revolution — which sports a five-pointed star on the title page.14 The book contains a naked plea for humanism, that is, a plea that our first priority is to work for others. In other words, a plea for collectivism. Humanism is collectivism. It is notable that the Rockefellers, who have promoted this humanistic idea for a century, have not turned their OWN property over to others.. Presumably it is implicit in their recommendation that we all work for the Rockefellers. Rockefeller’s book promotes collectivism under the guises of “cautious conservatism” and “the public good.” It is in effect a plea for the continuation of the earlier Morgan-Rockefeller support of collectivist enterprises and mass subversion of individual rights.

In brief, the public good has been, and is today, used as a device and an excuse for self-aggrandizement by an elitist circle that pleads for world peace and human decency. But so long as the reader looks at world history in terms of an inexorable Marxian conflict between capitalism and communism, the objectives of such an alliance between international finance and international revolution remain elusive. So will the ludicrousness of promotion of the public good by plunderers. If these alliances still elude the reader, then he should ponder the obvious fact that these same international interests and promoters are always willing to determine what other people should do, but are signally unwilling to be first in line to give up their own wealth and power. Their mouths are open, their pockets are closed.

This technique, used by the monopolists to gouge society, was set forth in the early twentieth century by Frederick C. Howe in The Confessions of a Monopolist.15 First, says Howe, politics is a necessary part of business. To control industries it is necessary to control Congress and the regulators and thus make society go to work for you, the monopolist. So, according to Howe, the two principles of a successful monopolist are, “First, let Society work for you; and second, make a business of politics.”16 These, wrote Howe, are the basic “rules of big business.” ….
