PATHOCRACY: THE GLOBAL ORDER

DO PSYCHOPATHS RULE THE WORLD?

Roman Emperor Caligula

Allen Dulles / Dick Cheney / Bill Clinton / Madeleine Albright

 

Throughout history, psychopaths, sociopaths, narcissists, and assorted antisocial-personality-disordered individuals have ruled societies.

Psychopaths and sociopaths often exhibit glibness and superficial charm, have a grandiose sense of self-worth, are pathological liars, display extreme narcissism, are deceitful, cunning and manipulative, exhibit a lack of remorse or guilt, show a callous disregard for the feelings of others, have no conscience, lack empathy, and fail to accept responsibility for their actions.

In a competitive world, the people who act immorally, who have no regard for truth, are going to have an advantage over those who play by the rules. The result is that those who achieve positions of power will be the most ruthless, the most sociopathic, the ones without conscience.

In societies run by psychopaths, ambitious individuals and sycophants, who are not clinically psychopathic, are induced to model themselves after powerful psychopaths in order to achieve power. The result: psychopaths breed more psychopaths.

When our ruling class - corporate leaders, bankers, academics, generals, media executives, Senators and Congressmen and even Presidents - are liars and deceivers, and are ruthless, callous manipulators who have no regard for truth or other people, the entire fabric of society is twisted in their image, and psychopathic behavior becomes the norm.

Our world is characterized by: permanent war, full-spectrum dominance, targeted assassinations, rendition, torture, water-boarding, mercenaries, Blackwater, paramilitaries, Contras, cruise missiles, drones, landmines, cluster bombs, napalm, Agent Orange, depleted uranium, biological and chemical weapons, enemy combatants, shock and awe, mujahideen, al-Qaeda, Taliban, Islamic State, state terrorism, false flags, 9/11, color revolutions, regime change, coup d'etats, sanctions, drug trafficking, money laundering, plausible deniability, impunity, fascism and neo-fascism, Auschwitz, Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, genocide, apartheid, dictatorship, plutocracy, oligarchy, kleptocracy, political sociopaths and narcissists, corruption, predatory capitalism, profiteering, tax havens, bank bail-outs and bail-ins, too-big-to-fail, monopoly capitalism, financialization, corporatism, corporate personhood, golden parachutes, fracking, mountain-top removal, tar sands, Fukashima, laboratory-created diseases, genetically-engineered food, glyphosate, three-strikes, maximum-security, corporate media, public relations, propaganda, surveillance, RFID chips, optical scans, facial recognition, globalization, austerity, structural adjustment, exploitation, poverty, the New World Order.

It is clear that this world has not been built by caring human beings, but has been constructed and is run by powerful hallow soulless individuals.

And, despite the violence, suffering and chaos they have caused, we allow them to remain at the top, and in control.

HOW THE WORLD REALLY WORKS

 

 

"Serial killers ruin families. Corporate, political and religious psychopaths ruin economies and societies."

Robert Hare

 

"A small proportion of people who suffer from psychologically abnormal personalities have, throughout history, had an immeasurable detrimental impact on our societies, our politics and our world. Enabled by their ruthlessness to readily acquire positions of power, they have long dominated the psychologically normal majority of the world's population."

Ian Hughes

 

"The world is a place where there are no good guys in positions of power. The ruling class, in all cases, is driven by a voracious appetite for supremacy, wealth, and control.
... No one in leadership positions in Washington DC, on Wall Street, in corporate America, or in the mainstream media are good. The entire world is under the control of deceitful, cunning, egomaniacal, corruptible, psychopaths who will stop at nothing to fulfill their personal agendas."

www.theburningplatform.com, 2015

 

"The single most important quality needed to resist evil is moral autonomy. Moral autonomy is possible only through reflection, self-determination, and the courage not to cooperate. Moral autonomy is what the corporate state, with all its coded attacks on liberal institutions and "leftist" professors, have really set out to destroy."

Chris Hedges

 

"The political system that is in place is a pathological system that is at odds in a very profound way with the being or nature of most people. People of conscience are being ruled by people with no conscience. This fact is the primary injustice and is the basis for the other ills of society."

Henry See in his book "The Trick of the Psychopath's Trade"

 

"In a world of psychopaths, those who are not genetic psychopaths, are induced to behave like psychopaths simply to survive. When the rules are set up to make a society "adaptive" to psychopathy, it makes psychopaths of everyone."

Laura Knight-Jadczyk

 

"Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives."

John Lennon

 

"The men the American people admire most extravagantly are the most daring liars; the men they detest most violently are those who try to tell them the truth."

H. L. Mencken

 

"Sometimes it seems impossible to escape the conclusion that the whole world is going insane with war and preparation for war. However, the situation is merely a manifestation of a psychopathic tendency in politics."

Jerry Russell and Richard Stanley

 

"Some powerful people make their living with the production of arms and sell them to one country for them to use against another country. The industry of death, the desire to have more money, the greed, harms us all. The economic system orbits around money and not men, women.
... Many powerful people don't want peace because they live off war."

Pope Francis, in 2015, met with pupils from Rome's primary schools

 

"Over 400 years ago, the Florentine statesman Niccolo Machiavelli engaged in a profound study of methods used by various rulers to attain power... The findings of Machiavelli and other students of power decree that to obtain power it is essential to ignore the moral laws of man and of God; that promises must be made only with the intention to deceive and to mislead others to sacrifice their own interests; that the most brutal atrocity must be committed as a matter of mere convenience; that friends or allies must be betrayed as matter of course as soon as they have served their purpose. But, it is also decreed that these atrocities must be kept hidden from the common people except only where they are of use to strike terror to the hearts of opponents; that there must be kept up a spurious aspect of benevolence and benefit for the greater number of the people, and even an aspect of humility to gain as much help as possible."

E. C. Knuth in his book "The Empire of the "City"

 

Niccolo Machiavelli

"Application of the doctrine of power holds that highminded words can be used by the powerful, the demagogue and the hypocrite, or the merely self-deluded, to arouse passion and prejudice and sentimentality for the wrong reasons in favor of disguised real aims, thus to deceive the people and to lead them by easy stages to sacrifice their own interests in the service of power."

Niccolo Machiavelli in his book "The Prince", 1513

 

"Since love and fear can hardly exist together, if we must choose between them, it is far safer to be feared than loved."

Niccolo Machiavelli in his book "The Prince", 1513

 

"Never attempt to win by force what can be won by deception."

Niccolo Machiavelli in his book "The Prince", 1513

 

"He who seeks to deceive will always find someone who will allow himself to be deceived."

Niccolo Machiavelli in his book "The Prince", 1513

 

PSYCHOPATHS & SOCIOPATHS - WHO ARE THEY ?

"A psychopath is defined as having no concern for the feelings of others & a complete disregard for any sense of social obligation. They seem egocentric and lacking insight and any sense of responsibility or consequence. Their emotions are thought to be superficial and shallow, if they exist at all. They are considered callous, manipulative and incapable of forming lasting relationships, let alone of any kind of love. It is thought that any emotions which the true psychopath exhibits are the fruits of watching and mimicking other people's emotions. They show poor impulse control and a low tolerance for frustration and aggression. They have no empathy, remorse, anxiety or guilt in relation to their behavior. In short, they truly are devoid of conscience.
Psychopaths also have a markedly distorted sense of the potential consequences of their actions, not only for others, but also for themselves. They do not, for example, deeply recognize the risk of being caught, disbelieved or injured as a result of their behaviour."

Robert D. Hare

 

"Psychopaths, like anyone else, are born with different basic likes, dislikes and desires, which is why some of them are doctors and presidents and others are petty thieves or rapists.
... What differentiates a sociopath who lives off the labors of others from one who occasionally robs convenience stores, or from one who is a contemporary robber baron, or what makes the difference between an ordinary bully and a sociopathic murderer, is nothing more than social status, drive, intellect, blood lust, or simple opportunity."

Martha Stout

 

"In every competition in life, the cheaters are going to have an advantage. The people who act immorally, who have no regard for truth, are gong to have an advantage over those who play by the rules. The result is that those who achieve positions of power will be the most ruthless, the most sociopathic, the ones with no conscience."

Stefan Verstappen

 

"The truth is the only thing worth working towards. What separates us from the psychopath is our conscience, and our conscience must become the voice of truth. True conscience raises us above the example of animal behaviour set by the pathocrats."

Henry See in his book "The Trick of the Psychopath's Trade"

 

"Psychopaths show a stunning lack of concern for the devastating effects their actions have on others. Often they are completely forthright about the matter, calmly stating that they have no sense of guilt, are not sorry for the pain and destruction they have caused, and that there is no reason for them to be concerned."

Robert D. Hare

 

"Character-disordered individuals, unencumbered by qualms of conscience, pursue their personal goals with indifference to and often at the expense of the rights and needs of others."

George Simon, Jr.

 

"Psychopaths differ from normal people in that they lack the ability to relate emotionally to others. As a consequence, they have a terrifying ability to treat others not as human beings but as things to be exploited, tortured or killed, as they see fit."

Ian Hughes

 

"Predators use charm, manipulation, intimidation, and violence to control others and to satisfy their own selfish needs. Lacking in conscience and in feelings for others, they cold-bloodedly take what they want and do as they please, violating social norms and expectations without the slightest sense of guilt or regret.

Robert D. Hare

 

"The psychopath enjoys making others suffer. Just as normal humans enjoy seeing other people happy, or doing things that make other people smile, the psychopath enjoys the exact opposite."

Andrew M. Lobaczewski in his book "Political Ponerology: a science on the nature of evil adjusted for political purposes"

 

"Psychopaths are experts at using people. They can ask anything of anyone without embarrassment.
... Psychopaths lie for the sake of lying. They can convey the deepest heartfelt message without meaning a word of it."

Laura Knight-Jadczyk

 

"Empathy cannot defeat the psychopath. You cannot change them, you cannot reform them, you cannot find the goodness inside them, you cannot show them the way to god, and you cannot teach them about love. All these approaches are doomed to failure since psychopaths can never understand nor can they care about these concepts. While they may lead you to believe that you are getting through to them, in reality, your empathy infuriates them and far from admiring your compassion, they despise you even more. While you try to 'understand' the psychopath, they are secretly calculating how best to cause you the most suffering."

Stefan H. Verstappen

 

"Psychopaths are social predators and like all predators they are looking for feeding grounds. Wherever you get power, prestige and money you will find them."

Robert Hare

 

"Interpersonal traits of psychopaths include glibness, superficial charm, a grandiose sense of self-worth, pathological lying, and the manipulation of others. The affective traits include a lack of remorse and/or guilt, shallow affect, a lack of empathy, and failure to accept responsibility.
... If violent offenders are psychopathic, they are able to assault, rape, and murder without concern for legal, moral, or social consequences. This allows them to do what they want, whenever they want. Ironically, these same traits exist in men and women who are drawn to high-profile and powerful positions in society including political officeholders."

Jim Kouri

 

"If you're very bright and know how to dress well; if you have the gift of the gab; if you're raised in an affluent family background; then you don't go in the bank and rob it, you get in the bank and become a director."

Robert Hare

 

"Psychopaths are smart, personable, and engaging, but have no consciences. They are not guided by a sense of right or wrong. They seem to be unaffected by the feelings of others, including feelings of distress caused by their actions. Straying from a decent way of treating people, or violating ethical codes causes no anxiety.
... Psychopaths are not technically insane. They don't have a psychosis, like schizophrenia. They are experts in appearing normal.
... In a country in which much of human culture has been rendered into machines for the manufacture of money, psychopaths are the ideal leaders. They are very focused. They are outcome oriented. They are frequently charming, and usually very bright and able. They can lay off thousands of people, or deny people health care, or have them waterboarded, and it does not disturb their sleep."

David Schwartz

 

"Civilization, as we know it, is largely the creation of psychopaths. All civilizations, our own included, have been based on slavery and warfare."

Stuart Hertzog

 

"Achieving power for the sake of having power is the nature of the psychopath."

Robert Hare

 

"The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power.
We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal.
We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power."

George Orwell in his book "1984"

 

"Lying, deceiving, and manipulation are natural talents for psychopaths."

Robert D. Hare

 

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN PSYCHOPATHS TAKE POWER ?

 

" Pathocracy is a system of government wherein a small pathological minority takes control over a society of normal people."

Andrew M. Lobaczewski in his book "Political Ponerology: A Science on The Nature of Evil Adjusted for Political Purposes"

 

"Psychopaths do well in politics. They are ideally suited to the ruthless, competitive, self-promoting and manipulative power games that dominate party politics."

Stuart Hertzog

 

"The question is not how to get good people to rule; the question is how to stop the powerful from doing as much damage as they can to us."

Karl Popper

 

"Has the government of the United States of America become a criminal enterprise? Is the nation ruled by psychopaths? How can the impoverishment of the people, the promotion of the military-industrial complex and endless wars and their genocidal killing, the degradation of the environment, the neglect of the collapsing infrastructure, and the support of corrupt and authoritarian governments abroad be explained? Worse, why are corporations allowed to profiteer during wars while the people are called upon to sacrifice? Why hasn't the government ever tried to prohibit such profiteering?"

John Kozy

 

"The State of the Union address is one of the largest collections of psychopaths ever organized under one roof. Every one of them is regularly engaged in the backstabbing political arena of bribes, usurpation of powers, slimy deals, Constitution shredding laws, pork-barrel appropriations for cronies, and contributors and the sanctioners of murder and mayhem around the world.
Then comes the president. With a well-practiced, straight face, he tells lie after lie as if he actually believed what he was saying were true; his cadence interrupted only by the applause from the gallery of psychopaths when he tells a really big one. They all know that none of the president's promises will come true - that it's all political subterfuge - but they give repeated standing ovations for his convoluted proclamations."

Hari Heath

 

"Sociopaths love power. They love winning. If you take loving kindness out of the human brain, there's not much left except the will to win." 

Martha Stout

 

"When we view the true nature of psychopathic influence - that it is conscienceless, emotionless, selfish, cold and calculating, and devoid of any moral or ethical standards - then everything suddenly begins to makes sense. Our society is ever more soulless because the people who lead it and who set the example are soulless - they literally have no conscience."

Andrzej Lobaczewski in his book "Political Ponerology: A science on the nature of evil adjusted for political purposes"

 

"Many politicians share the traits of psychopaths who are not sensitive to altruistic appeals, such as sympathy for their victims or remorse or guilt over their crimes. They possess the personality traits of lying, narcissism, selfishness, and vanity. These are the people to whom we have entrusted our fate. Is it any wonder that America is failing at home and world-wide?"

John Kozy

 

"Psychopaths are naturally attracted to positions of power, and they will overwhelm anyone with a conscience, who plays by the rules and has good intentions. So you will have people with very dark interior lives, who are controlling channels of communication, controlling finance, controlling industry. And, they will promote their psychopathic "family" values. Psychopathic "values" now permeate all facets of our culture."

Stefan Verstappen

 

"Most psychopathic serial killers and many professional politicians must mimic what they believe are appropriate responses to situations they face such as sadness, empathy, sympathy, and other human responses to outside stimuli. ... These traits exist in men and women who are drawn to high-profile and powerful positions in society including political officeholders."

Jim Kouri

 

"Psychopaths and sociopaths flock to power. This is the trouble with any kind of power. It attracts people who want to use it and who get thrills from using it no matter what it does to other people... We have a nation run by sociopaths and psychopaths."

Paul Craig Roberts, 2014

 

"Psychopaths seek positions of power and influence, and politics offers publicity, prestige, and other perks. It also provides positions of ultimate authority over military, industry, and entire populations. In a world where psychopaths are understandably viewed as morally repulsive, often finding themselves at home in the criminal world, politics offers an opportunity to create a new world, to be free from the moral and legal rules of society."

Harrison Koehli

 

"Power is an addiction its abusers can neither comprehend nor arrest. They are programmed towards ruthless, hegemonic domination of the 'other'... The 'free market' really means freedom for the few to steal everything from the many. The game is rigged so that the people lose either way."

Niall Bradley

 

"Anyone who wants to rule men first tries to humiliate them, to trick them out of their rights and their capacity for resistance, until they are as powerless before him as animals. He uses them like animals and, even if he does not tell them so, in himself he always knows quite clearly that they mean just as little to him; when he speaks to his intimates he will call them sheep or cattle. His ultimate aim is to incorporate them into himself and to suck the substance out of them. What remains of them afterwards does not matter to him. The worse he has treated them, the more he despises them. When they are no more use at all, he disposes of them as he does excrement, simply seeing to it that they do not poison the air of his house."

Elias Canetti

 

"Psychopaths have played a disproportionate role in the development of civilization, because they are hard-wired to lie, kill, injure, and generally inflict great suffering on other humans without feeling any remorse."

Kevin Barnett

 

"American leaders are perhaps not so much immoral as they are amoral. It's not that they take pleasure in causing so much death and suffering. It's that they just don't care. The same that could be said about a sociopath. As long as the death and suffering advance the agenda of the empire, as long as the right people and the right corporations gain wealth and power and privilege and prestige, as long as the death and suffering aren't happening to them or people close to them, then they just don't care about it happening to other people, including the American soldiers whom they throw into wars and who come home - the ones who make it back alive - with Agent Orange or Gulf War Syndrome eating away at their bodies. American leaders would not be in the positions they hold if they were bothered by such things."

William Blum

 

"Since the late 1940s, the United States has been deliberately engaged in an imperial project, and anyone who would hold the office of the presidency has to be willing to serve that end. All presidents have to promote the national security state, both domestically and in American foreign policy, if they wish to attain and hold on to power."

Morris Berman

 

"If the Nuremberg laws were applied today, then every Post-War American president would have to be hanged."

Noam Chomsky

 

"Our leaders are cruel because only those willing to be inordinately cruel and remorseless can hold positions of leadership in the foreign policy establishment. People capable of expressing a full human measure of compassion and empathy toward faraway powerless strangers do not become president of the United States, or vice president, or secretary of state, or national security adviser."

William Blum

 

"American policymakers, setting themselves up as guardians of the world system, are more inclined than ever to simply disregard international laws and conventions if they get in the way of unrivaled military supremacy. Every instance of U.S. armed intervention during the 1980s and 1990s represents a flagrant violation of regional treaties and laws, not to mention the UN Charter itself, which explicitly prohibits military attacks against sovereign nations - for example, Grenada, Nicaragua, Haiti, Panama, Serbia, and Iraq. In any event, the U.S. has consistently shown its contempt for international bodies, agreements, and procedures that might conflict with its hegemonic aspirations."

Carl Boggs

 

"So many Americans find it almost impossible to believe that their government officials would wantonly sacrifice the lives of its citizens [9/11-WTC massacre] to further their personal agendas. More importantly, consider the fact that your government knows how you think only too well."

Laura Knight-Jadczyk

 

"A nuclear war could alleviate some of the factors leading to today's ecological disturbances that are due to current high-population concentrations and heavy industrial production."

official of the U.S. Office of Civil Defense, quoted in The Fate of the Earth by Jonathan Schell, 1982

 

"From 1945 to 2003, the United States attempted to overthrow more than 40 foreign governments, and to crush more than 30 populist-nationalist movements fighting against intolerable regimes. In the process, the US bombed some 25 countries, caused the end of life for several million people, and condemned many millions more to a life of agony and despair."

William Blum

 

"In politics the professional psychopath's ruthlessness and cunning gives them a distinct advantage over any non-psychopath rival. They make charismatic leaders, manipulating and brainwashing the naive, vulnerable, uneducated, or mentally weak. Mastery of lying allows them to make whatever outrageous campaign promises straight faced with, of course, no intention of keeping any of them. A life spent faking being human give them the ability to assume the roles of virtuous public servant, the perfect father, husband, advisor, mentor, and everyman. In addition when things get rough they have no inhibitions in playing dirty and readily resort to murder, assassination, persecution, war and genocide."

Stefan H. Verstappen

 

"Why do we continue to allow leaders who are motivated by self-interest, or by their own psychological issues from the past, to fan bitterness and political crisis into armed confrontation and war?"

Martha Stout

 

ARE OUR LEADERS PSYCHOPATHS ?

Harry Truman / Lyndon Johnson / Richard Nixon / Ronald Reagan

 

"Our leaders are cruel because only those willing to be inordinately cruel and remorseless can hold positions of leadership in the foreign policy establishment.
... People capable of expressing a full human measure of compassion and empathy toward faraway powerless strangers ... do not become president of the United States, or vice president, or secretary of state, or national security adviser or secretary of the treasury. Nor do they want to."

William Blum

 

"The world will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, a military base. That was because we wished in this first attack to avoid, insofar as possible, the killing of civilians.
[HIroshima was a Japanese city with a population of 400,000. The atomic bomb killed more than 150,000 civilians.]

President Harry Truman, August 9, 1945

 

"Based on a detailed investigation of all the facts and supported by the testimony of the surviving Japanese leaders involved, it is the Survey's opinion that certainly prior to 31 December 1945, and in all probability prior to November 1945, Japan would have surrendered even if the atomic bombs had not been dropped, even if Russia had not entered the war, and even if no invasion had been planned or contemplated."

U.S. Strategic Bombing Survey [1945] - which interviewed 700 Japanese officials after WWII

 

"It is my opinion that the use of this barbarous weapon at Hiroshima and Nagasaki was of no material assistance in our war against Japan.
The Japanese were already defeated and ready to surrender because of the effective sea blockade and the successful bombing with conventional weapons. My own feeling is that in being the first to use it, we had adopted an ethical standard common to the barbarians of the Dark Ages."

Admiral William Leahy, top military aide to President Truman, in his war memoirs

 

"It wasn't necessary to hit them [Japanese] with that awful thing ... To use the atomic bomb, to kill and terrorize civilians, without even attempting negotiations, was a double crime."

General Dwight D. Eisenhower

 

"The truth is we are guilty. Our conscience as a nation must trouble us. We must confess our sin. We have used a horrible weapon to asphyxiate and cremate more than 100,000 men, women and children in a sort of super-lethal gas chamber - and all this in a war already won or which spokesman for our Air Forces tell us we could have readily won without the atomic bomb."

David Lawrence, founder and editor of U.S. News And World Report

 

"I want people around me who would kiss my ass on a hot summer's day and say it smells like roses."

President Lyndon Johnson to Senator Hubert Humphrey

 

"Fuck your Parliament and your Constitution. We pay a lot of good American dollars to the Greeks, Mr. Ambassador. If your Prime Minister gives me talk about Democracy, Parliament and Constitutions, he, his Parliament, and his Constitution may not last very long."

President Lyndon Johnson to the Greek Ambassador, 1970s

 

"The exercise of power in this century has meant for all of us in the United States not arrogance but agony. We have used our power not willingly and recklessly ever, but always reluctantly and with restraint."

President Lyndon Johnson

 

"Our one desire - our one determination - is that the people of Southeast Asia be left in peace to work out their own destinies in their own way."

President Lyndon Johnson

 

"Just get me elected, and then you can have your war [Vietnam]."

President Lyndon Johnson to the Joint Chiefs of Staff, December 24, 1963

 

"I didn't just screw Ho Chi Minh. I cut his pecker off."

Lyndon B. Johnson, commenting to reporters on the first American airstrikes against North Vietnam, August 5, 1964

 

"We own half the trucks in the world. We own almost half of the radios in the world. We own a third of all the electricity... Now I would like to see them [Vietnamese] enjoy the blessings that we enjoy. But don't you help them exchange places with us, because I don't want to be where they are."

President Lyndon Johnson before a junior Chamber of Commerce audience, 1966

 

"As a human being Lyndon Johnson was a miserable person - a bully, sadist, lout, and egotist. He had no sense of loyalty, and he enjoyed tormenting those who had done the most for him. He seemed to take a special delight in humiliating those who had cast in their lot with him. It may well be that this was the result of a form of self-loathing in which he concluded that there had to be something wrong with anyone who would associate with him."

George Reedy, Lyndon Johnson's former press secretary

 

"Lyndon Johnson was a monster... He was one of the few politicians with whom I found it uncomfortable to be in the same room. Johnson exuded a brutal lust for power which I found most disagreeable. When he said, "I never trust a man unless I have his pecker in my pocket", he really meant it. He boasted about acting on the principle, "Give me a man's balls, and his heart and mind will follow"."

Denis Healey, the Secretary of Defense in Britain in his memoirs

 

"Make the Chilean economy scream."

President Richard Nixon

 

"Those who vote for abortion will vote for it because they think that what's gonna be aborted generally are the little black bastards."

President Richard Nixon

 

"When the President does it , that means that it is not illegal."

President Richard Nixon

 

"The press is the enemy."

President Richard Nixon

 

"People react to fear, not love; they don't teach that in Sunday School, but it's true."

President Richard Nixon

 

"I am not a crook."

President Richard Nixon

 

"We have never interfered in the internal government of a country and have no intention of doing so, never have had any thought of that kind."

President Ronald Reagan
[during the Reagan presidency the U.S. intervened in Nicaragua, Grenada, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Libya, Lebanon, Bolivia, Iran]

 

"President Rios Montt is a man of great personal integrity and commitment who wants to improve the quality of life for all Guatemalans, and is getting a "bum rap" on human rights."

President Ronald Reagan - about Guatemalan dictator and mass-murderer Efrain Rios Montt

 

"During the early '80s when the Reagan administration was backing them enthusiastically under the time of the dictator Gen. Rios Montt, the Guatemalan military would go into villages in the Mayan highlands in the northwest... They would decapitate people. They would crucify people. They would use the tactics that ISIS today puts on video that are now shocking the world."

investigative journalist Allan Nairn

 

"As long as there is breath in my body, I will speak and work, strive and struggle, for the cause of the Nicaraguan freedom fighters [contras].
... [The contras are] the moral equivalent of our founding fathers."

President Ronald Reagan - about the U.S.-funded Contra mercenary army that terrorized Nicaraguans for more than a decade

 

"If it takes a bloodbath ... let's get it over with."

California Governor Ronald Reagan - about dealing with Vietnam war protesters

 

"From a pay phone at the Nutburger stand on Sunset Boulevard, Ronald Reagan places midnight calls to his brother Neil, an F.B.I. spy investigating the Hollywood Independent Citizen's Committee of Arts, Sciences and Professions for Communist leanings. As one of the Bureau's confidential informants, code number T-10, Reagan delivers the names of suspicious colleagues and identifies cliques in the Screen Actors Guild loyal to the Communist Party line.
At J. Edgar Hoover's request, he reels off the names of disloyal actors and actresses at a secret session of the House Un-American Activities Committee."

Michael K. Smith

 

"Ronald Reagan was most definitely a global empire builder, a servant of the corporatocracy. He would cater to the men who shuttled back and forth from corporate CEO offices to bank boards and into the halls of government. He would serve the men who appeared to serve him but who in fact ran the government. He would advocate what those men wanted: an America that controlled the world and all its resources, a world that answered to the commands of that America, a U.S. military that would enforce the rules as they were written by America, and an international trade and banking system that supported America as CEO of the global empire."

John Perkins

 

"There is basically a refusal on the part of American society to enforce the murder laws when the killings are done by presidents or generals, and where the victims are foreigners. Now, all big powers do this. But in the recent period, because the U.S. has been the dominant power, the U.S. has the biggest death toll. If you added all the operations up it would go into the several millions. Just to list the ones that I've personally seen and tried to expose and fight against: Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Haiti, South Africa, Palestine, East Timor, Indonesia, southern Thailand. I'm sure I'm leaving out a few. The U.S. has used the Pentagon, the CIA, occasionally the State Department to set up or back local forces, help them gather intelligence on dissidents, and help them provide the means to carry out systematic assassinations."

"The world once divided into two camps now recognizes one sole and preeminent power, the United States of America. And they regard this with no dread. For the world trusts us with power, and the world is right. They trust us to be fair, and restrained. They trust us to be on the side of decency. They trust us to do what's right."

President George H W Bush, 1992

 

"What is at stake is more than one small country, it is a big idea - a new world order...to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind...based on shared principles and the rule of law...The illumination of a thousand points of light...The winds of change are with us now."

President George H W Bush

 

"I will never apologize for the United States of America - I don't care what the facts are."

President George H W Bush

 

"I can tell you this: If I'm ever in a position to call the shots, I'm not going to rush to send somebody else's kids into a war."

President George H W Bush [U.S. invaded Panama and Iraq during the Bush Administration]

 

"It is quite clear that one of the major challenges of the 1970s will be to curb the world's fertility."

President George H W Bush

 

"You have a survivability of command and control, survivability of industrial potential, protection of a percentage of your citizens, and you have a capability that inflicts more damage on the opposition than it can inflict on you."

Vice-President George H W Bush, on how to win a nuclear war, 1980

 

"We love your adherence to democratic principle."

Vice President George H W Bush to Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos

 

"If the American people knew the truth about what we Bushes have done to the nation, we would be chased down the street and lynched."

George H W Bush to reporter Sarah McClendon, Dec. 1992

 

"You can say anything you want in a debate, and 80 million people hear it. If reporters then document that a candidate spoke untruthfully, so what? Maybe 200 people read it, or 2000 or 20,000."

George H W Bush's press secretary to reporters following the 1980 vice-presidential debate

 

"It was Bill Clinton's administration that deregulated derivatives, that deregulated telecom, and that put our country's only strong banking laws in the grave. He's the one who rammed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) through Congress and who taught the world that the way you respond to a recession is by paying off the federal deficit. Mass incarceration and the repeal of welfare, two of Clinton's other major achievements, are the pillars of the disciplinary state that has made life so miserable for Americans in the lower reaches of society. He would have put a huge dent in Social Security, too, had the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal not stopped him. If we take inequality as our measure, the Clinton administration looks not heroic but odious."

Thomas Frank

 

"President Clinton decided that those who had given up looking for work, or those who wanted full-time jobs but could find only part-time employment, were no longer to be counted as unemployed. His trick disappeared some 5 million unemployed from the official unemployment rolls.
... Our actual unemployment rate, when you include those who have stopped looking for work and those who can find only poorly paid part-time jobs, is 15 percent."

Chris Hedges

 

"We must teach our children to resolve their conflicts with words, not weapons."

President Bill Clinton
[after the Columbine school shootings in Colorado, urging young people not to resort to violence, while he continued NATO bombing of Yugoslavia, and bombed Sudan and Afghanistan]

 

"You know the one thing that is wrong in this country? Everyone gets a chance to have their fair say."

President Bill Clinton

 

"We can't be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary citizens."

President Bill Clinton

 

"When we got organized as a country and we wrote a fairly radical Constitution with a radical Bill of Rights, giving a radical amount of individual freedom to Americans... and so a lot of people say there's too much personal freedom. When personal freedom's being abused, you have to move to limit it."

President Bill Clinton, 1994

 

"We're not inflicting pain on these fuckers. When people kill us, they should be killed in greater numbers. I believe in killing people who try to hurt you. And I can't believe we're being pushed around by these two-bit pricks."

Bill Clinton in 1993, about Somalia - to George Stephanopoulos

 

"As the first president of the new global era, Bill Clinton visited more than 70 countries, set up the WTO, boosted the international budget, maintained high levels of Pentagon spending, militarized the drug wars in South America, continued the military and economic assault on Iraq, laid the groundwork for "humanitarian" interventions, bombed the Sudan and Afghanistan, and carried out protracted aerial raids on Serbia. Enthused by prospects for total surveillance of the world, Clinton raised intelligence spending levels to more than 30 billion dollars, with increasing emphasis on the supersecret National Security Agency. The planned, systematic, and brutal destruction of the Serb infrastructure must be considered one of the great war crimes of the postwar years."

Carl Boggs

 

"Bill Clinton, and most other contemporary Democrats, did not and will not do what is best for us or the world we live in. We don't pay their bills - the top 10 percent do, and it is their will that will always be done. So is there a difference between Democrats and Republicans? Sure. The Democrats say one thing and then do another-quietly holding hands behind the scenes with the bastards who make this world a meaner place. The Republicans just come right out and give the bastards a corner office in the West Wing. That's the difference."

Michael Moore

 

"The North American Free Trade Agreement [NAFTA] was peddled by the Clinton White House as an opportunity to raise the incomes and prosperity of the citizens of the United States, Canada, and Mexico. NAFTA would also, we were told, stanch Mexican immigration into the United States.
... But NAFTA, which took effect in 1994, had the effect of reversing every one of Clinton's rosy predictions. Once the Mexican government lifted price supports on corn and beans grown by Mexican farmers, those farmers had to compete against the huge agribusinesses in the United States. Many Mexican farmers were swiftly bankrupted. At least 2 million Mexican farmers have been driven off their land since 1994.
... NAFTA was great if you were a corporation. It was a disaster if you were a worker.
... Bill Clinton's welfare reform bill, signed on August 22, 1996, obliterated the nation's social safety net. It threw 6 million people, many of them single mothers, off the welfare rolls within three years. It dumped them onto the streets without child care, rent subsidies, or continued Medicaid coverage.
... Clinton slashed Medicare by $115 billion over a five-year period and cut $25 billion in Medicaid funding.
... The Clinton administration, led by Lawrence Summers, signed into law the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999, which ripped down the firewalls that had been established by the 1933 GlassSteagall Act. Glass-Steagall established the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. It set in place banking reforms to stop speculators from hijacking the financial system. With Glass-Steagall demolished, and the passage of NAFTA, the Democrats, led by Clinton, tumbled gleefully into bed with corporations and Wall Street speculators."

Chris Hedges

 

"In 1994, Bill Clinton called for and then sign his name to the most sweeping police-state bill that postwar America has seen. Among other things, the measure provided for the construction of countless new prisons, it established over a hundred new mandatory minimum sentences, it allowed prosecutors to charge thirteen-year-olds as adults in some cases, and it coerced the states into minimizing parole. It also increased the number of federal death penalties from three to sixty, including some for nonlethal offenses."

Thomas Frank

 

"We're a peaceful nation... This is the calling of the United States of America, the most free nation in the world, a nation built on fundamental values, that rejects hate, rejects violence, rejects murderers, rejects evil. And we will not tire."

President George W Bush
[under the Bush Administration U.S. invaded Afghanistan and Iraq, bombed Somalia, used drones over Pakistan and Yemen, kidnapped Haitian President Aristide to Africa]

 

"God would tell me, 'George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan'. And I did, and then God would tell me, 'George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq...' And I did. And now, again, I feel God's words coming to me, 'Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East."

President George W Bush

 

"Our nation stands alone right now in the world in terms of power, and that's why we've got to be humble and yet project strength in a way that promotes freedom.
We're a freedom-loving nation. And if we're an arrogant nation, they'll view us that way, but if we're a humble nation, they'll respect us.
I think the United States must be humble and must be proud and confident of our values, but humble in how we treat nations that are figuring out how to chart their own course."

George W. Bush, 2000
[under the Bush Administration U.S. invaded Afghanistan and Iraq, bombed Somalia, used drones over Pakistan and Yemen, kidnapped Haitian President Aristide to Africa]

 

"This is an impressive crowd. The "haves" and the "have-mores". Some people call you the "elite". I call you my base."

President George W Bush

 

"I glance at the newspaper headlines just to kind of get a flavor of what's moving. I rarely read the stories, I get briefed by people who probably read the news themselves ... people on my staff who tell me what's happening in the world."

President George W Bush

 

"The Constitution is just a goddamn piece of paper."

President George W Bush

 

"Everybody's got access to health care in America. You just go to an emergency room."

President George W Bush

 

"I don't know where Osama bin Laden is. You know, I just don't spend that much time on him... I truly am not that concerned about him."

President George W Bush

 

"All who live in tyranny and hopelessness can know: The United States will not ignore your oppression or excuse your oppressors. When you stand for your liberty, we will stand with you."

President George W Bush

 

"If there is somebody captured, I expect those people to be treated humanely. If not, the people who mistreat the prisoners will be treated as war criminals."

President George W Bush

 

"We are doing everything we can to avoid war in Iraq."

President George W Bush

 

"The United States is committed to the worldwide elimination of torture and we are leading this fight by example. I call on all governments to join with the United States and the community of law-abiding nations in prohibiting, investigating, and prosecuting all acts of torture and in undertaking to prevent other cruel and unusual punishment."

President George W. Bush

 

"You need somebody in office who will tell the truth."

President George W Bush

 

"Bill Clinton rammed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) through Congress.
... NAFTA was supposed to encourage U.S. exports to Mexico; the opposite is what happened, and in a huge way. NAFTA was supposed to increase employment in the U.S.; a study from 2010 counts almost 700,000 jobs lost in America thanks to the treaty. And, the agreement gave one class in America enormous leverage over the other: employers now routinely threaten to move their operations to Mexico if their workers organize. A surprisingly large number of them-far more than in the pre-NAFTA days-have actually made good on the threat.... In the decades before NAFTA, Mexico's economy often grew rapidly; since NAFTA was enacted, Mexico has experienced some of the feeblest growth of any country in Latin America, despite all the stuff it now makes and exports to the U.S. The country's poverty rate has not changed much at all while every other country in the region has made considerable progress. One reason for all this is the predictably destructive effect that free trade with American agribusiness has had on the fortunes of millions of Mexican family farmers."

Thomas Frank

 

"Empathy is at the heart of my moral code and it is how I understand the Golden Rule -- not simply as a call to sympathy or charity, but as something more demanding, a call to stand in somebody else's shoes and see through their eyes."

Barack Obama in his book "The Audacity of Hope"

 

"Whatever mistakes we have made, the plain fact is this: The United States of America has helped underwrite global security for more than six decades with the blood of our citizens and the strength of our arms.
We have borne this burden not because we seek to impose our will. We have done so out of enlightened self-interest - because we seek a better future for our children and grandchildren, and we believe that their lives will be better if others' children and grandchildren can live in freedom and prosperity."

Barack Obama in his Nobel speech, 2009

 

"I believe that all nations, strong and weak alike, must adhere to standards that govern the use of force... we have a moral and strategic interest in binding ourselves to certain rules of conduct... I believe that the United States must be a standard bearer in the conduct of war."

Barack Obama in his Nobel speech, 2009

 

"U.S. military commanders consistently fail to make the most fundamental distinction between combatants and civilians that is at the heart of the laws of war.
They issue a wide variety of illegal orders that include "weapons free" (formerly "free fire") rules of engagement; orders to "kill all military age males"; air strikes on buildings where combatants have taken cover among large numbers of civilians; and brutal collective punishment of civilian populations."

[Obama has rapidly accelerated the use of drones in which more than 70% of those killed are civiiians]

Barack Obama in his Nobel speech, 2009

 

"What we need from the President of the United States is not another hypocritical speech... This means ending U.S. wars and occupations, radically reassessing the genuine defense needs of his country, bringing his government into compliance with its international treaty commitments and enforcing its own laws."

Barack Obama in his Nobel speech, 2009

 

"The Clintons have used their foundation [Clinton Foundation] for crass profiteering and influence peddling.
If the Justice Department and law enforcement agencies do their jobs, the foundation will be closed and its current and past trustees, who include Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton, will be indicted. That's because their so-called charitable enterprise has served as a vehicle to launder money and to enrich Clinton family friends."

Ken Silverstein

 

"The Clinton Foundation has received more than $1 billion over the years to purchase HIV/AIDS drugs for poor people in Africa, Asia, and elsewhere. However, a unit set up to receive the money-the Clinton Foundation HIV/AIDS Initiative, Inc., which was run by Ira Magaziner, a Clinton administration veteran with close ties to Hillary-clearly spent far, far less than it took in. In fact, the unit's accounting practices were so shoddy that its license was revoked by the state of Massachusetts."

Hillary Clinton / Condoleeza RIce / Madeleine Albright

 

" I think this a very hard choice, but the price - we think the price is worth it."

Secretary of State Madeleine Albright - about US sanctions killing more than 500,000 Iraqi children

 

"As UN Ambassador and the Secretary of State in the Bill Clinton regime, Madeleine Albright was a fanatical advocate of the genocidal sanctions blockade that killed more than a million women, children and men in Iraq, and of the 1999 U.S./NATO bombing war against Yugoslavia."

Gloria La Riva

 

"I am very proud of what we are doing. We are the greatest nation in the world."

Secretary of State Madeleine Albright - about sanctions on Iraq

 

"What's the point of having this superb military that you're always talking about if we can't use it?"

Secretary of State Madeleine Albright

 

"In 1999, Albright played a key role in the war on Yugoslavia, engineering the failure of the negotiations that preceded the war. Albright presented the Yugoslav government with an "agreement" that would have allowed NATO to forces to occupy the entire country, with the unheard of provision that Yugoslavia would pay for the expenses of the occupation!
After the talks broke off, a "top official" (Albright) told reporters in an off-the-record session: "We intentionally set the bar too high for the Serbs to comply. They need some bombing, and that's what they are going to get." When the Yugoslav government predictably rejected the ultimatum disguised as a "proposal," the bombing began and continued for three months.
Thousands of civilians were killed, wounded and made homeless. As was true in Iraq, the entire population was traumatized, with women and children most severely impacted.
Like the assault on Iraq, the attack on Yugoslavia was a war crime, a "crime against peace," the most serious of all violations of international law, a war of aggression against another state that poses no threat to the country launching the war."

Gloria La Riva

 

"If we have to use force, it is because we are America. We are the indispensable nation. We stand tall. We see farther into the future."

Secretary of State Madeleine Albright

 

"It's quite distressing to see two permanent members of the Security Council [Russia and China] using their veto while people are being murdered - women, children, brave young men - houses are being destroyed. It is just despicable and I ask whose side are they on? They are clearly not on the side of the Syrian people."

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

 

"The American people are tired of liars and people who pretend to be something they're not."

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

 

"Though an overwhelming majority of Americans, according to public opinion polls, believe that human rights should be a cornerstone of American foreign policy, Senator Hillary Clinton has repeatedly prioritized the profits of American arms manufacturers and the extension of Washington's hegemonic reach in parts of the world."

Stephen Zunes

 

"The State Department, along with the rest of the Administration, will be a strong voice for international legal norms, for living up to our treaty obligations, to recognizing that America's moral authority in international politics also rests on our ability to defend international laws and international treaties."

Condoleezza Rice, Secretary of State in the George W. Bush Administration

 

"The United States does not transport and has not transported detainees from one country to another for the purpose of interrogations using torture."

Condoleezza Rice, Secretary of State in the George W. Bush Administration

 

"The United States government does not authorize or condone torture of detainees."

Condoleezza Rice, Secretary of State in the George W. Bush Administration

 

"I take my integrity very seriously, and I did not at any time make a statement that I knew to be false."

Condoleezza Rice, Secretary of State in the George W. Bush Administration

 

"We don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud."

Condoleezza Rice, Secretary of State in the George W. Bush Administration, Sept. 8, 2002

 

"Condelleza Rice and Colin Powell are both dangerous people. What they did in Haiti is a good measure of it. They destroyed a democracy. They squelched loans that had been approved by the Inter-American Development Bank. They did everything behind the scenes, including arming the thugs that came to overrun the country. They're frauds."

Randall Robinson

 

"Pathological lying and manipulation are not restricted to psychopaths. What makes psychopaths different from all others is the remarkable ease with which they lie, the pervasiveness of their deception, and the callousness with which they carry it out. "

Dick Cheney / Donald Rumsfeld

 

"I think Vice President Dick Cheney is insane. The neocons are insane. I don't know of a sane one."

Paul Craig Roberts, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration and former editor of the Wall Street Journal. 2008

 

"The good Lord did not see fit simply to put oil under those countries friendly to the United States."

Vice-President Dick Cheney

 

"The Persian Gulf will be a primary focus of U.S. international energy policy... American efforts to obtain increased supplies of foreign oil will also require the threat of or the use of force to dissuade hostile forces from attempting to obstruct the flow of petroleum to the United States. This, in turn, will require an enhanced U.S. capacity to operate militarily in areas of likely fighting over oil."

Vice-President Dick Cheney

 

"The war on terrorism is different than the Gulf War was, in the sense that it may never end."

Vice-President Dick Cheney

 

"There is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction. There is no doubt he is amassing them to use against our friends, against our allies, and against us."

Vice-President Dick Cheney

 

"We know Saddam has been absolutely devoted to trying to acquire nuclear weapons, and we believe he has, in fact, reconstituted nuclear weapons."

Vice-President Dick Cheney

 

"The Plan is for the United States to rule the world. The overt theme is unilateralism, but it is ultimately a story of domination. It calls for the United States to maintain its overwhelming superiority and prevent new rivals from rising up to challenge it on the world stage. It calls for dominion over friends and enemies alike. It says not that the United States must be more powerful, or most powerful, but that it must be absolutely powerful."

Vice-President Dick Cheney - lecture at West Point, June 2002

 

"There's no debate in the world as to whether they Iraqis have these nuclear weapons. We all know that. A trained ape knows that."

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, Sept. 13, 2002

 

"I don't believe anyone that I know in the administration ever said that Iraq had nuclear weapons."

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, May 14, 2003

 

"Make the American people realize they are surrounded in the world by violent extremists."

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, in an internal memo, 2007

 

Zbigniew Brzezinski / Henry Kissinger

 

"U.S. military forces were directly responsible for about 10 to 15 million deaths during the Korean and Vietnam Wars and the two Iraq Wars.
... The United States was also responsible for 14 million deaths in Afghanistan, Angola, Democratic Republic of the Congo, East Timor, Guatemala, Indonesia, Pakistan and Sudan.
... The United States most likely has been responsible since WWII for the deaths of between 20 and 30 million people in wars and conflicts scattered over the world."

James A. Lucas

 

"In the United States, as you know, we are sympathetic with what you are trying to do here ... We wish your government well."

Henry Kissinger to Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet, prior to his 1973 overthrow (and death) of Chilean President Salvador Allende

 

"Today Americans would be outraged if UN troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful. This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government."

Henry Kissinger speaking at the annual Bilderberger meeting, May 21, 1992

 

"Control the food, and you control the people."

Henry Kissinger

 

"We don't want a big story leaking out that we are trying to overthrow the government of Chile."

Henry Kissinger to President Richard Nixon [transcript]

 

"Covert action should not be confused with missionary work."

Secretary of State Henry Kissinger

 

"The issues are much too important for the Chilean voters to be left to decide for themselves."

Henry Kissinger, Secretary of State under Richard Nixon

 

"Jimmy Carter is not the President of the United States. The Trilateral Commission is the President of the United States; I represent the Trilateral Commission."

Henry Kissinger's declaration to the head of state of Canada

 

"Why should we flagellate ourselves for what the Cambodians did to each other?"

Henry Kissinger

 

"Henry Kissinger produced, in April 1974, the classified National Security Council Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM 200), directed to Washington high officialdom, defining a program aimed at population reduction in Third World countries possessing needed raw materials, since growing populations with aspirations for a better standard of living give rise to high prices for such materials. Kissinger named 13 target countries for population control, including Brazil, India, Egypt, Mexico, Ethiopia, Columbia, and others."

F William Engdahl in his book "A Century of War"

 

"I ask you, what is the difference between 30 million people dead and 130 million people dead? ... With 30 million dead, the United States can survive."

Edward Teller, nuclear physicist and 'father' of the H-Bomb, describing how the "Star Wars"space-based weapons system might allow the United States to fight and "survive" a nuclear war

 

"The technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities."

Zbigniew Brzezinski in his 1970 book "Between Two Ages: America's Role in the Technetronic Era"

 

"People, governments and economies of all nations must serve the needs of multinational banks and corporations."

Zbigniew Brzezinski in his book "Between Two Ages: America's Role in the Technetronic Era"

 

"The "nation-state as a fundamental unit of man's organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force: International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation-state."

Zbigniew Brzezinski in his book "Between Two Ages: America's Role in the Technetronic Era"

 

"Years ago the publication of the book [Political Ponerology: A Science on the Nature of Evil Adjusted for Political Purposes] in the US was killed by Mr. Zbigniew Brzezinski in a very cunning way. What was his motivation, I may only guess. Was it his own private strategy, or did he act as an insider of the "great system" as he surely is? How many billions of dollars and how many human lives the lack of this science has cost the world."

Andrew Lobaczewski, author of the book " Political Ponerology: a science on the nature of evil adjusted for political purposes"

 

Sen. John McCain / Rep. Dennis Hastert / Rep. Newt Gingrich / Sen. Lindsey Graham

 

"Eighteen months after winning his seat in Congress, Newt Gingrich who campaigned on keeping his family united asked for a divorce. His wife Jackie, who was in the hospital recovering from a second cancer operation, was confronted by her husband carrying a yellow legal pad filled with a list of his wishes regarding how the divorce should be handled. He wanted her to sign it, then and there, even though she was still groggy from surgery. When Gingrich abandoned his family he left them near destitute."

John Dean

 

"Newt Gingrich uses people and then discards them as useless. He's like a leech. He really is a man with no conscience. He just doesn't seem to care who he hurts or why."

reporter Mary Kahn

 

"The important thing you have to understand about Newt Gingrich is that he is amoral. There isn't any right or wrong, there isn't any conservative or liberal. There's only what will work best for Newt Gingrich. He's probably one of the most dangerous people for the future of this country that you can possibly imagine."

L. H. Carter, once a close friend and adviser to Newt Gingrich

 

"I hated my enemies even before they held me captive because hate sustained me in my devotion to their complete destruction and helped me overcome the virtuous human impulse to recoil in disgust from what had to be done by my hand."

Senator John McCain

 

"Get on with the business of killing our enemies as quickly as we can, and as ruthlessly as we must."

Senator John McCain, about the Taliban in Afghanistan

 

"I believe that the Iraqi people will greet us as liberators."

Senator John McCain

 

"John McCain fits perfectly as an authoritarian leader, possessing most, if not all, of these traits:
dominating, opposes equality, desirous of personal power, amoral, intimidating and bullying, faintly hedonistic, vengeful, pitiless, exploitive, manipulative, dishonest, cheats to win, highly prejudiced (racist, sexist, homophobic), mean-spirited, militant, nationalistic, tells others what they want to hear, takes advantage of "suckers", specializes in creating false images to sell self,
may or may not be religious, usually politically and economically conservative/Republican"

Allen Dulles-Director of CIA / John Foster Dulles-Secretary of State

 

"Do nothing to offend the dictators in Latin America ; they are the only people we can depend on."

Secretary of State John Foster Dulles

 

"Somehow we find it hard to sell our values, namely that the rich should plunder the poor."

Secretary of State John Foster Dulles

 

"In order to bring a nation to support the burdens of maintaining great military establishments, it is necessary to create an emotional state akin to war psychology. There must be the portrayal of external menace."

Secretary of State John Foster Dulles

 

"In every society a minority always dominated. The question was how to do it. If the minority affronted the majority, it lost influence. If discretely exercised... the minority influence could be effective and desirable."

Secretary of State John Foster Dulles

 

"We must regard Arab nationalism as a flood which is running strongly. We cannot successfully oppose it, but we can put up sand bags around positions we must protect - the first being Israel and Lebanon and the second being the oil positions around the Persian Gulf."

Secretary of State John Foster Dulles

 

"They've done studies of people in power, and they all have to be, to some extent, on the psychopathic spectrum. You have to be unfeeling to a certain extent to send people to their death in war and take the kind of actions that men and women in power routinely have to take. But with Allen Dulles, I think he went to the next step. His favorite word was whether you were "useful" to him or not. And this went for people he was sleeping with or people he was manipulating in espionage or so on. He was the kind of man that could cold-bloodedly, again and again, send people to their death, including people he was familiar with and supposedly fond of."

David Talbot, author of the book "The Devil's Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America's Secret Government"

 

"Allen Dulles, the Director of the CIA under President Eisenhower, ordered the assassination of Congolese President Patrice Lumumba in August 1960. Before the CIA could act, Mobutu Sese Seko, Lumumba's private secretary, intervened militarily and removed Lumumba from power."

David Model

 

"I.G. Farben was most famous for putting the gas in gas chambers; it was the producer of Zyklon B and other gasses used on victims of the Holocaust... The Bush family hired Allen Dulles, the future head of the CIA, to hide the funds they were making from Nazi investments and the funds they were sending to Nazi Germany."

William Bowles

 

"The financing for Adolph Hitler's rise to power was handled through the Warburg-controlled Mendelsohn Bank of Amsterdam and later by the J. Henry Schroeder Bank... Chief legal counsel to the J. Henry Schroeder Bank was the firm of Sullivan and Cromwell whose senior partners included John Foster and Allen Dulles."

Gary Allen in his book "None Dare Call It Conspiracy"

 

"President Dwight Eisenhower, named Allen Dulles CIA Director. Dulles' forte was overthrowing governments and he was quite good at it. With coups in Iran (1953) and Guatemala (1954) under his belt, Dulles was riding high in the late Fifties and moved Cuba to the top of his to-do list."

Ray McGovern


"The CIA overlords of the Cuban Bay of Pigs invasion, Director Allen Dulles and Deputy Richard Bissell had their own plan on how to bring the United States into the conflict... What they expected was that the invaders would establish a beachhead... and appeal for aid from the United States."

journalist Daniel Schorr told National Public Radio, March 2001

 

"As the de facto head of the Warren Commission, CIA Director Allen Dulles was perfectly positioned to exculpate himself and any of his associates, were any commissioners or investigators or journalists tempted to question whether the JFK killing in Dallas might have been a CIA covert action."

Ray McGovern

 

"CIA Director Allen Dulles and his brother Secretary of State John Foster Dulles were in touch with the power elite, and a mere President [Eisenhower] influenced them not at all."

L. Fletcher Prouty

 

"In the case of Vietnam, the course followed by the U.S. government was established by two international Wall Street lawyers, John Foster Dulles and Allen Welch Dulles, among other, more invisible powers."

L. Fletcher Prouty

 

"A central focus of the Averell Harriman security regime in Washington (1950-53) was the organization of covert operations, and "psychological warfare." Harriman, together with his lawyers and business partners, Allen Dulles and John Foster Dulles, wanted the government's secret services to conduct extensive propaganda campaigns and mass-psychology experiments within the U.S.A., and paramilitary campaigns abroad. This would supposedly ensure a stable world-wide environment favorable to Anglo-American financial and political interests."

Webster Griffin Tarpley and Anton Chaitkin

 

"Allen Dulles, Richard Helms, Carmel Offie and Frank WIsner were the grand masters. If you were in a room with them, you were in a room ful of people that you had to believe would deservedly end up in hell."

James Angleton, CIA Chief of Counterintelligence

 

"CIA Director Allen Dulles had gone to see President Eisenhower as early as March 1960 seeking approval to develop a plan to overthrow Fidel Castro. The original idea for using Mafia figures to assist the CIA in this plan originated as early as 1960."

Phillip F. Nelson

 

"Allen Dulles created the CIA, assisted the Nazis, covered up the Kennedy assassination from his Warren Commission perch and struck a deal with the Muslim Brotherhood to create mind-controlled assassins. Brother John Foster Dulles presided over the phony Goldman Sachs trusts before the 1929 stock market crash and helped his brother overthrow governments in Iran and Guatemala."

Dean Henderson

 

"John Foster Dulles was an accomplished warmonger. In 1933, he and his brother Allen had rushed to Cologne to meet with Adolf Hitler and guaranteed him the funds to maintain the Nazi regime. The Dulles brothers were representing their clients, Kuhn Loeb Co., and the Rothschilds."

Eustace C. Mullins

 

"Max Warburg, brother of Kuhn-Loeb's Paul Warburg. ran a family financial powerhouse in Frankfort, Germany... The Warburg connection is reported to have helped the Axis powers financially. At the end of the war in 1919, the Treaty of Versailles meetings were attended by Rothschild connected men like Paul and Max Warburg, John Foster Dulles (of Kuhn-Loeb), Colonel [Edward Mandell] House, Thomas Lamont (of JP Morgan) and Allen Dulles (of Kuhn-Loeb). The harsh terms of the Treaty of Versailles totally set the stage for World War II."

David Smith

 

J. Edgar Hoover - FBI Director 1924-1972

 

"Justice is incidental to law and order."

J.Edgar Hoover - Director of the FBI 1924-1972

 

"That fellow [FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover] was a master blackmailer. The moment he would get something on a senator he'd send one of the errand boys up and advise the senator that we're in the course of an investigation and by chance happened to come up with this data on your daughter. But we wanted you to know this-we realize you'd want to know it. But don't have any concern, no one will ever learn about it. Well, Jesus, what does that tell the senator? From that time on, the senator's right in his pocket."

William Sullivan, number three in the FBI under J. Edgar Hoover to Los Angeles Times, 1973

 

"Martin Luther King is the most notorious liar in the country."

J.Edgar Hoover - Director of the FBI 1924-1972

 

"Never once did I hear anybody, including myself, raise the question: 'Is this course of action which we have agreed upon lawful, is it legal, is it ethical or moral? ... We never gave any thought to this line of reasoning... The one thing we were concerned about was this: Will this course of action work, will it get us what we want?... As far as legality is concerned, morals or ethics, [it] was never raised... I think this suggests really in government that we are amoral. In government ... the general atmosphere is one of amorality."

William Sullivan, number three in the FBI under J. Edgar Hoover to Los Angeles Times, 1973

 

"I've always thought that underpopulated countries in Africa are vastly underpolluted.
... I think the economic logic behind dumping a load of toxic waste in the lowest wage country is impeccable and we should face up to it."

Lawrence Summers

 

"I don't want to abolish government. I simply want to reduce it to the size where I can drag it into the bathroom and drown it in the bathtub."

Grover Norquist - president of 'Americans for Tax Reform'

 

"A corporation cannot be ethical; its only responsibility is to turn a profit."

Milton Friedman

 

"You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before."

Rahm Emanuel

"I can teach you about torture, but sooner or later you'll have to get involved. You'll have to lay on your hands and try it yourselves ... The precise pain, in the precise place, in the precise amount, for the desired effect.
... When you get what you want, and I always get it, it may be good to prolong the session a little to apply another softening-up, not to extract information now, but only as a political measure, to create a healthy fear of meddling in subversive activities."

Dan Mitrione, Head of the US Office of Public Safety (OPS) mission in Uruguay in 1981

 

"Without empathy, shame, and remorse psychopaths are free to lie as often and as outrageously as they please... for the psychopath lying is as easy and natural as breathing... given the right circumstances they can fool anyone."

Stefan H. Verstappen

 

ARE NEOCONS PSYCHOPATHS ?

Michael Ledeen / William Kristol / Paul Wolfowitz / Richard Perle / John Bolton

 

"Killing in the name of democracy is what Neocons call 'moral intervention'."

Gilad Atzmon

 

"The neoconservatives represent the greatest danger ever faced by the United States and the world. Humanity has no greater enemy."

Paul Craig Roberts - Reagan Administration Assistant Treasury Secretary and former associate editor of the Wall Street Journal

 

"No country in the world upholds the Geneva Conventions on the laws of armed conflict more steadfastly than does the United States."

Douglas Feith, 2004

 

"Defense Department officials don't lie to the public. The Defense Department doesn't do covert action, period."

Douglas Feith, Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, 2002

 

"Just as it is sometimes necessary temporarily to resort to evil actions to achieve worthy objectives, so a period of dictatorship is sometimes the only hope for freedom.
... Paradoxically, preserving liberty may require the rule of a single leader - a dictator - willing to use those dreaded 'extraordinary measures', which few know how, or are willing, to employ."

neocon Michael Ledeen

 

"Every ten years or so, the United States needs to pick up some crappy little country and throw it against the wall, just to show the world we mean business."

neocon Michael Ledeen

 

"Democracies will not sacrifice to protect their security in the absence of a sense of danger. And every time we create the impression that we and the Soviets are cooperating and moderating the competition, we diminish that sense of apprehension."

Richard Perle, Assistant Secretary of Defense under Ronald Reagan

 

"No stages. This is total war. We are fighting a variety of enemies. There are lots of them out there. All this talk about first we are going to do Afghanistan, then we will do Iraq, then we take a look around and see how things stand. This is entirely the wrong way to go about it... If we just let our vision of the world go forth, and we embrace it entirely, and we don't try to piece together clever diplomacy, but just wage a total war ... our children will sing great songs about us years from now."

Richard Perle

 

"[The 2003 Iraq invasion] ended quickly with few civilian casualties and with little damage to Iraq's cities, towns or infrastructure. It ended without the Arab world rising up against us, as the war's critics feared, without the quagmire they predicted, without the heavy losses in house-to-house fighting they warned us to expect."

Richard Perle

 

"We had virtually no economic options with Iraq, because the country floats on a sea of oil."

Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz

 

"I don't want to make a prediction, but you're going to find Iraqis out cheering American troops."

Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz

 

"In the Middle East and Southwest Asia, our overall objective is to remain the predominant outside power in the region and preserve U.S. and Western access to the region's oil. "

Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz

 

"I'm not concerned about weapons of mass destruction. I didn't come [to Iraq] in a search for weapons of mass destruction. "

Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz

 

"We are treating the Iraqi prisoners extremely well. In fact I think they get good food and shelter and they're free from the horrible commanders they used to work for. I think most of them are much happier, frankly."

Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz

 

"The Geneva Convention is very clear on the rules for treating prisoners. They're not supposed to be tortured or abused; they're not supposed to be intimidated; they're not supposed to be made public displays of humiliation or insult, and we're going to be in a position to hold those Iraqi officials who are mistreating our prisoners accountable, and they've got to stop."

Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz

 

"Our first objective is to prevent the re-emergence of a new rival... This is a dominant consideration underlying the new regional defense strategy and requires that we endeavor to prevent any hostile power from dominating a region whose resources would, under consolidated control, be sufficient to generate global power... First the US must show the leadership necessary to establish and protect a new order that holds the promise of convincing potential competitors that they need not aspire to a greater role or pursue a more aggressive posture to protect their legitimate interests."

Paul Wolfowitz in the "Defense Planning Guidance"

 

"The rapture evangelicals and the neocons are euphoric at the prospect of nuclear war."

Paul Craig Roberts - Reagan Administration Assistant Treasury Secretary and former associate editor of the Wall Street Journal

 

"The Project for a New American Century (PNAC) plan was regime change throughout the Middle East, starting with Baghdad, Damascus, Tehran, and rolling on through the Middle East, ultimately even probably rolling on to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The PNAC philosophy would use hard power, military power, principally, to initiate this and even continue it if they found it was necessary to do so. That keeps the military-industrial complex alive, it keeps Halliburton alive, it keeps Lockheed alive, it keeps the entire complex the United States had developed after the demise of the Soviet Union, that I call the national security state, alive and well."

Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell

 

"In the fall of 2000, a year before 9/11, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld signed on to a major study, Rebuilding America's Defenses, by the lobbying group Project for the New American Century (PNAC). The study called for a major increase in the defense budget, the removal of Saddam Hussein from Iraq, and the maintenance of U.S. troops in the Gulf area even after Saddam's disappearance.
The PNAC study was a blueprint for the George W. Bush foreign policy that has been and still is being implemented. It also reflected support from the private sector for the blueprint of full-spectrum dominance."

Peter Dale Scott

 

"A reasonable assessment of the events in the United States over the past 50 years or so gives ample evidence of the application of the ideas in the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" in order to bring about the current Neoconservative administration [Bush/Cheney]. Anyone who wishes to understand what has happened in the U.S. needs to read the "Protocols" to understand that some group of deviant individuals took them to heart. The document, "Project For A New American Century" produced by the Neoconservatives reads as if it had been inspired by the same schizoidal worldview."

Andrew M. Lobaczewski in his book "Political Ponerology: a science on the nature of evil adjusted for political purposes"

 

WERE THE 19th and 20th CENTURY "MONEY TRUST" BANKERS PSYCHOPATHS ?

John D. Rockefeller / Jacob Schiff / Paul Warburg / J. P. Morgan

 

"The powers of financial capitalism had a far-reaching aim - nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements [BIS] in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations ... Each central bank sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Carroll Quigley in his book "Tragedy and Hope"

 

"Communism and socialism are themselves forms of monopoly. The only difference is that in this case, the monopoly is operated by the government. But what if an international banker, through loans to the state, manipulation of a central bank, campaign contributions, or bribes, is able to achieve dominion over a government? In that case, he would find socialism welcome, for it would serve him as an instrument to control society."

James Perloff in his book "The Shadows of Power: The Council on Foreign Relations and the American Decline"

 

"The Depression [1929] was not accidental. It was a carefully contrived occurrence. The international bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair here [United States] so that they might emerge as rulers of us all."

Louis T. McFadden, Chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives' Banking and Currency Committee, 1932

 

"I care not what puppet is placed on the throne of England to rule the Empire. The man who controls Britain's money supply controls the British Empire and I control the British money supply."

Nathan Mayer Rothschild

 

"Either the application for the renewal of the charter [of the Bank of the United States] is granted or the United States will find itself involved in a most disastrous war.
... Teach these impudent Americans a lesson. Bring them back to colonial status."

Nathan Rothschild - who controlled the Bank of England - said this after the United States government under President Andrew Jackson refused to renew the charter of the privately owned and controlled Bank of the United States.

 

"We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent."

international banker James Warburg testifying before the United States Senate on Feb. 7, 1950

 

"John D. Rockefeller J. P. Morgan, and other kingpins of the Money Trust were powerful monopolists. A monopolist seeks to eliminate competition. In fact, Rockefeller once said: "Competition is a sin." These men were not free enterprise advocates."

James Perloff in his book "The Shadows of Power: The Council on Foreign Relations and the American Decline"

 

"During the past two centuries when the peoples of the world were gradually winning their political freedom from the dynastic monarchies, the major banking families of Europe and America were actually reversing the trend by setting up new dynasties of political control through the formation of international financial combines. These banking dynasties had learned that all governments must have sources of revenue from which to borrow in times of emergency. They had also learned that by providing such funds from their own private resources, they could make both kings and democratic leaders tremendously subservient to their will."

Carroll Quigley in his book "Tragedy and Hope"

 

"Psychopaths litter history with genocides and the destruction of entire nations and empires. Historical examples include such monsters as Stalin, Pol Pot, Ivan the Terrible, and Caligula. While there are many that make it to the pinnacle of the political stage there are also such historical figures as J.P. Morgan, Randolph Hearst, and Mayer Rothschild, professional psychopaths that reach the pinnacle of the financial stage where they cause no less misery and destruction as their political counterparts."

Stefan H. Verstappen

 

WERE THE 19th and 20th CENTURY ROBBER BARONS PSYCHOPATHS ?

Andrew Mellon / Cornelius Vanderbilt / Edward Henry Harriman / Jay Gould / Andrew Carnegie / John Jacob Astor

 

"I have been insane on the subject of moneymaking all my life."

Cornelius Vanderbilt

 

"You have undertaken to cheat me. I won't sue you, for the law is too slow. I'll ruin you."

Cornelius Vanderbilt

 

"I can hire one half of the working class to kill the other half."

Jay Gould

 

"Give tax breaks to large corporations, so that money can trickle down to the general public, in the form of extra jobs."

Andrew Mellon

 

"The lesson is clear: if you are a thief, steal by the billions or trillions, and then no one can do anything about it. If you are in the drug trade: handle only billions (or hundreds of billions) in drug money, and then you will get away with it. If you don't want to pay taxes, be a member of the top 0.001% of the world's super-rich and hide your billions in offshore tax-free accounts. If you want more, create a global economic crisis, demand to be saved by the state to the tune of tens of trillions of dollars, and then, tell the state to punish their populations into poverty in order to pay for your mistakes.
In other words, if you want to indulge your criminal fantasies, lie and steal, profit from death and drugs, dominate and demand, be king and command, become the highly-functioning socially-acceptable sociopath you always knew you could be... think big. Think bank. Serial killers, bank robbers and drug dealers go to jail; bankers get bailouts and get an unlimited insurance policy called "too big to fail."

Jurriaan Maessen, Global Research

 

"Ever since the days of Henry Ford, the Economic Elite have needed a thriving US middle class to increase growth and profits, but now, in the global economy, they view the US middle class as obsolete. They increasingly look globally for profits and they would rather pay cheap labor in countries like China and India."

David DeGraw

 

"Within the highest circles of power and wealth, a lack of pity and remorse is practically a prerequisite to success, and only the psychopathic mentality can thrive."

Stefan H. Verstappen

 

ARE ROTHSCHILDS AND ROCKEFELLERS PSYCHOPATHS ?

David Rockefeller / Jacob Rothschild


"We are ruled, though it may be difficult to imagine, by a small dynastic power structure, largely consisting of powerful banking families, such as the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, and others. They emerged in controlling the financial system, extended their influence over the political system, the educational system, and, through the major foundations, have become the dominant social powers of our world, creating think tanks and other institutions which shape and change the course of society and modern human history."

Andrew Gavin Marshall

 

"Rothschild-controlled Barings Bank bankrolled the Chinese opium and African slave trades. It financed the Louisiana Purchase. The House of Rothschild financed the Prussian War, the Crimean War and the British attempt to seize the Suez Canal from the French. Nathan Rothschild made a huge financial bet on Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo, while also funding the Duke of Wellington's peninsular campaign against Napoleon. Both the Mexican War and the Civil War were gold mines for the family."

Dean Henderson in his book "Big Oil & Their Bankers in the Persian Gulf"

 

"Seven men in Wall Street now control a great share of the fundamental industry and resources of the United States... These powerful men were themselves answerable to a foreign power which had been steadfastly seeking to extend its control over the young republic of the United States since its very inception. This power was the financial power of England, centered in the London Branch of the House of Rothschild. The fact was that in 1910, the United States was for all practical purposes being ruled from England, and so it is today [1911]."

"The Seven Men" an article by John Moody - McClure's Magazine, August 1911

 

"Some believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as "internationalists" and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure - one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it."

David Rockefeller in his "Memoirs"

 

"We are on the verge of global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order."

David Rockefeller - statement to the United Nations Business Council, 1994

 

"We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supra-national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries."

David Rockefeller - Council on Foreign Relations, June 1991

 

"We are going to have a war on terror which you can never win, and so you can always keep taking people's liberties away. The media is going to convince everybody that the war on terror is real. The ultimate goal is to get everybody in the world chipped with an RFID chip, and have all money be on the chips, and if anyone wants to protest what we do, we turn off the chip."

Nicholas Rockefeller to producer Aaron Russo - eleven months before the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks

 

"The Rockefeller Foundation, working with John D. Rockefeller Ill's Population Council, the World Bank, the UN Development Program and the Ford Foundation, and others, had been working with the WHO (World Health Organization) for 20 years to develop an anti-fertility vaccine using tetanus, as well as with other vaccines."

F. William Engdahl in his book "Seeds of Destuction"

 

"The Rothschilds control the Bank of England, the Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, the IMF, the World Bank and the Bank of International Settlements. Also they own most of the gold in the world as well as the London Gold Exchange, which sets the price of gold every day. It is said the family owns over half the wealth of the planet-estimated by Credit Suisse to be $231 trillion."

Pete Papaherakles, americanfrepress.net

 

"The most important issue of our time is the drive of the Rockefellers and their allies to create a one-world government, combining super-capitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control."

Congressman Lawrence P. McDonald, November of 1975

 

George Soros

 

"George Soros's relation to the secretive international Rothschild finance circle represents no ordinary or casual banking connection. It goes a long way toward explaining the extraordinary success of a mere private speculator, and Soros's uncanny ability to "gamble right" so many times in such high-risk markets.
Soros has access to the "insider track" in some of the most important government and private channels in the world."

Executive Intelligence Review Special Report, 1997

 

"George Soros is part of a circle ... linked to the financial side of the Israeli Mossad, and to the family of Lord Jacob Rothschild.
Understandably, Soros and the Rothschild interests prefer to keep their connection hidden far from public view, so as to obscure the powerful friends Soros can claim in the City of London, the British Foreign Office, Israel, and the U.S. financial establishment."

Executive Intelligence Review Special Report, 1997

 

"George Soros is merely the visible face of a vast network of private financial interests, controlled by the leading aristocratic and royal families of Europe. A secret cross-linked vast holding of private financial interests, tied to the told aristocratic oligarchy of Western Europe, was developed. It was in many ways modeled on the 17th-century British or Dutch East India Company models."

F. William Engdahl

 

"George Soros is not only one of the world's leading mega-speculators; throughout his entire life he has served as an "errand boy" for the Anglo-American monetarist establishment, running looting operations against the nations of Eastern Europe, as well as attacks against the sovereignty of nations... Through his Open Society Foundations, George Soros positioned himself, long before communism fell, as the man who, on behalf of Anglo-American banking interests and the IMF, tried to put into place the mechanism for the economic and political "transition" to occur in the Eastern European countries."

Executive Intelligence Review Special Report, 1997

 

"George Soros became a staunch advocate of the policy of "shock therapy," which was approved by British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and her close associate George HW Bush, after the Berlin Wall had fallen."

Executive Intelligence Review Special Report, 1997

 

"Along with former Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker; Citibank vice-chairman H. Anno Ruding, who was formerly with the IMF; and Harvard Professor Jeffrey Sachs, George Soros had a big hand in creating the Polish model of 'shock therapy'."
[Sachs attracted Soros's attention through his work in implementing IMF-style "shock therapy" in Bolivia.]"

Executive Intelligence Review Special Report, 1997

 

"George Soros proposed shutting down the entire military-industrial base of the former Soviet Union in order to sell its energy and raw material inputs cheaply abroad. Since his proposal that Russia unload its raw materials and energy, Russian raw materials ranging from gold to aluminum have been looted, along with energy resources."

Executive Intelligence Review Special Report, 1997

 

ARE TOO-BIG-TO-FAIL BANKS PSYCHOPATHIC ?

"The American banking oligarchy consists of six megabanks - Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo... They have assets equivalent to 60 percent of our gross national product. And to put this in perspective, in the mid-1990s, these six banks or their predecessors had less than 20 percent."

James Kwak interviewed by Bill Moyers

 

"A huge chunk of international banking and related financial operations have been created solely to manage dirty money.

from the book "DOPE, INC."

 

"A global financial cabal engineered a fraudulent housing and debt bubble [2008], illegally shifted vast amounts of capital out of the US; and used 'privatization' as a form of piracy - a pretext to move government assets to private investors at below-market prices and then shift private liabilities back to government at no cost to the private liability holder... Clearly, there was a global financial coup d'etat underway."

Catherine Austin Fitts

 

"The relationship between the banking system and the mafia started in the 1960s and '70s. In the '60s and '70s, the mafia basically handled cash in large amounts, although not as large as today because international crime was much smaller. It was mostly Italian, North American, and with some other affiliations, but it was limited in size."

former UN Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime Antonio Maria Costa, 2012

 

"The merger between banks and drug groups materialized as a result of two-way traffic. World-class banks seek out money globally and offer to drug lords the services in the form of whitewashing cash and investing it in legal sectors of the economy. The drug cartels, in turn, regard the banking sector as a priority investment niche."

Valentin Katasonov

 

"In Britain, the MI6 drug money is laundered through the Bank of England, Barclays Bank and other household name companies. The drug money is passed from account to account until its origins are lost in a huge web of transactions."

James Casbolt

 

"The British Crown Colony of Hong Kong, with the British Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC) at the top, is considered the number-one money-laundering center for the heroin trade ... Illegal drugs are the biggest business in the Far East-and close to being the biggest business in the world - but in Hong Kong, drugs do not merely dominate the economy: They are the economy."

from the book "DOPE, INC."

 

"Our global banking system is a global cartel, a "super-entity" in which the world's major banks all own each other and own the controlling shares in the world's largest multinational corporations.
... This is the real 'free market', a highly profitable global banking cartel, functioning as a worldwide financial Mafia."

Andrew Gavin Marshall

 

"Goldman Sachs' influence extends beyond the ability of its analysts and traders to drive stock or bond prices up and down, as they do daily with the reports they write and the decisions they make to buy or sell securities... It creates new financial instruments that shape the global marketplace, it can make or break the CEOs and government ministers who regularly pass through its doors looking for capital and for "buy" recommendations linked to their decisions, and it serves as the hub of an international network of deal makers."

David Rothkopf

 

"There is a special breed of international financiers whose success typically is built upon certain character traits. Those include cold objectivity, immunity to patriotism, and indifference to the human condition. That profile is the basis for proposing a theoretical strategy, called the Rothschild Formula, which motivates such men to propel governments into war for the profits they yield... As long as the mechanism of central banking exists, it will be to such men an irresistible temptation to convert debt into perpetual war and war into perpetual debt."

G. Edward Griffin in his book "The Creature from Jekyll Island"

 

"The merger between banks and the drug-supplying groups began roughly four centuries ago. In Great Britain, the alliance comprised the British East India Company to which the government issued an exclusive license for opium trade in India and other British colonies and the first British banks including the Bank of England, Barings Bank, and the Rothschild London Bank."

Valentin Katasonov

 

"Weapons of financial mass destruction deployed by Central Bankers and Disaster-Capitalists, under the guise of protecting the markets and improving the efficiency of the system, vacuum the wealth of the nations - the work people produce - into ever fewer hands.
... With all governments indebted to them and most ignorant of their existence, they foment chaos at will, incite or tranquillise populations as required, and maneuver legislation appropriate to their insatiable greed."

Niall Bradley

 

"The banks - hard to believe in a time when we're facing a banking crisis that many of the banks created - are still the most powerful lobby on Capitol Hill. And they frankly own the place."

Senator Dick Durbin

Hank Paulson-GoldmanSachs / Jaime Dimon-JP Morgan Chase / Lloyd Blankfein-GoldmanSachs

 

"The United States has entered the ranks of the failed states. One of the most remarkable manifestations of a failed state is that the criminals are all inside the government operating against the people, whereas in a normal state, the criminals are on the outside of the government, operating against it. So, we now have every manifestation of being a failed state, with the government in the hands of a few Wall Street gangsters."

Paul Craig Roberts

 

"Bank CEOs represent their shareholders, they're appointed by the board of directors to make money for their shareholders. And the way they think that they can best make money is to shape the regulatory rules around housing around derivatives,.. everything we used to have that kept the financial sector under control has all been washed away, one way or another, by their efforts. They make money in the boom. And when bad things happen, they shove all the downside onto the taxpayer."

Simon Johnson, former Chief Economist at the International Monetary Fund

 

"The financial and political crises which have rocked the United States and Europe since 2008 occurred because people with dangerous personality disorders were able to rise to positions of power within financial institutions and effectively bankrupt much of the western world.
... Once in positions of authority, these individuals simply did what comes naturally to them. They pursued their own self-interest with no regard for the consequences of their actions."

Ian Hughes

 

"If you're very bright, know how to dress well; you have, say, the gift of the gab; you're raised in an affluent family background; [then] you don't go in the bank and rob it, you get in the bank and become a director."

Robert Hare in his 1970 book "Psychopath: Theory and Research"

 

"Bank CEOs have no fear for the government ... and they have no not an ounce of gratitude to the American people, who saved them, their jobs, and the way they run the world."

Simon Johnson, former Chief Economist at the International Monetary Fund

 

"There is a transnational ruling class, a "Superclass", that agrees on establishing a world government. The middle class is targeted for elimination, because most of the world has no middle class, and to fully integrate and internationalize a middle class, would require industrialization and development in Africa, and certain places in Asia and Latin America. The goal of the Superclass is not to lose their wealth and power to a transnational middle class, but rather to extinguish the notion of a middle class, and transnationalize a lower, uneducated, labor oriented class, through which they will secure ultimate wealth and power.
The global economic crisis serves these ends, as whatever remaining wealth the middle class holds is in the process of being eliminated, and as the crisis progresses, the middle classes of the world will suffer, while a great percentage of lower classes of the world, poverty-stricken even prior to the crisis, will suffer the greatest, most probably leading to a massive reduction in population levels, particularly in the "underdeveloped" or "Third World" states."

Andrew Gavin Marshall

 

IS OUR NATIONAL SECURITY STATE PSYCHOPATHIC ?
PENTAGON, SURVEILLANCE AGENCIES, WEAPONS MANUFACTURERS

 

"One of the characteristics of tyranny is the monitoring and surveillance of citizens. Done primarily as a means of control, this has existed in every authoritarian state, not to mention totalitarian dictatorship, which seeks total control of the population. The defense is almost always based on national security grounds."

William F. Pepper in his book "An Act of State: the Execution of Martin Luther King"

 

"Nesting within the executive is that most virulent purveyor of state power: the national security state, an informal configuration that usually includes the Executive Office of the White House, special White House planning committees, the sixteen intelligence agencies, the Pentagon, Joint Chiefs of Staff, director of national intelligence, National Security Council, and other such units engaged in surveillance, suppression, covert action, and forceful interventions abroad and at home. The president operates effectively as head of the national security state as long as he stays within the parameters of its primary dedication - which is to advance the interests of corporate investors and protect the overall global capital accumulation process."

Michael Parenti

 

"A nearly seamless political transition to fascism is well underway in the United States. The mass media, the electoral machinery, and both major political parties are under corporate control... The Constitution and its Bill of Rights are being rendered meaningless by plans for perpetual war, by presidential signing statements and the theory of the unitary executive, extraordinary rendition, government surveillance programs and the like. Programs based on democratic principles like the public schools, Social Security, and Medicare are being starved to death... Blackwater is the growing private military force of the ruling class, protecting them in Baghdad and patrolling the streets of New Orleans for them now. Because there are too many sons and daughters of the working class in the US military it can not be trusted by the bourgeoisie when the order is given to attack the American people. Likely the two militaries will one day face each other in combat."

Malcolm Martin

 

"The two greatest visions of a future dystopia were George Orwell's "1984" and Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World." The debate, between those who watched our descent towards corporate totalitarianism, was who was right. Would we be, as Orwell wrote, dominated by a repressive surveillance and security state that used crude and violent forms of control? Or would we be, as Huxley envisioned, entranced by entertainment and spectacle, captivated by technology and seduced by profligate consumption to embrace our own oppression? It turns out Orwell and Huxley were both right. Huxley saw the first stage of our enslavement. Orwell saw the second."

Chris Hedges

 

"While U.S. combat forces prepare to draw-down in Iraq, military intelligence units are coming home to apply their combat-tempered surveillance skills to our expanding homeland security state, while preparing to counter any future domestic civil disturbances here."

Alfred W. McCoy

 

"The middle classes will vanish and poverty will reign supreme, while the rich become immeasurably richer and more powerful. Naturally, people will rise up, take to the streets, protest, demonstrate, riot, even rebel and revolt. As sure as the people will resist, the state will repress with police, the military and the 'Homeland Security State' apparatus of surveillance and control. Make no mistake: this is the 'Thirdworldization' of the West: the 'Post-Industrial Revolution'."

Andrew Gavin Marshall

 

THE PENTAGON

Gen. Curtis LeMay / Gen. Lyman Lemnitzer

 

"Our military organization today bears little relation to that known by any of my predecessors in peace time, or indeed by the fighting men of World War II or Korea.
Until the latest of our world conflicts, the United States had no armaments industry. American makers of ploughshares could, with time as required, make swords as well. But now we can no longer risk emergency improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions.
... This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence - economic, political, even spiritual-is felt in every city, every state house, and every office of the federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications.
... In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.
We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted; only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together."

President Dwight Eisenhower's Farewell Address

 

"I spent 33 years in the Marines, most of my time being a high-class muscle man for big business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for Capitalism... The general public shoulders the bill. This bill renders a horrible accounting. Newly placed gravestones, Mangled bodies. Shattered minds. Broken hearts and homes. Economic instability. Back-breaking taxation for generations and generations."

Brigadier General Smedley D. Butler, 1935

 

"Enemies are necessary for the wheels of the U.S. military machine to turn."

John Stockwell - former CIA official

 

"The military function of the war system serves simply to defend or advance the 'national interest' by means of organized violence. It is often necessary for a national military establishment to create a need for its unique powers... And a healthy military apparatus requires regular 'exercise', by whatever rationale seems expedient, to prevent its atrophy."

from "Report from Iron Mountain"

 

"There is a Pentagon memo that describes how we're going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran."

General Wesley Clark, 2001

 

"From 1994 to 2002, the Pentagon signed more than 3,000 contracts with U.S. based firms valued at $300 billion. Military Professional Resources Inc. (MPRI) one of the largest companies operating in Iraq was given the contract for ROTC training in almost 200 universities. The company's Virginia headquarters displayed a plaque which read: "War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse".
MPRI trained the security forces of numerous authoritarian regimes, including Equatorial Guinea in a contract that was approved by the State Department after dictator Teodoro Obiang granted concessions for off-shore drilling to Exxon-Mobil. It also trained Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) and Ugandan fighters linked to major human rights abuses in Congo. A senior embassy staffer described the program there as "killers training killers"."

"We're going to bomb them back into the stone Ages."

General Curtis E. LeMay - about the North Vietnamese during the Vietnam War

 

"The Joint Chiefs of Staff drew up and approved plans [Operation Northwoods] for ... launching a secret and bloody war of terrorism against their own country in order to trick the American public into supporting an ill-conceived war they intended to launch against Cuba.
Code named Operation Northwoods, the plan, which had the written approval of the Chairman [General Lyman Lemnitzer] and every member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called for innocent people to be shot on American streets; for boats carrying refugees fleeing Cuba to be sunk on the high seas; for a wave of violent terrorism to be launched in Washington, D.C., Miami, and elsewhere. People would be framed for bombings they did not commit; planes would be hijacked. Using phony evidence, all of it would be blamed on Castro, thus giving Lemnitzer and his cabal the excuse, as well as the public and international backing, they needed to launch their war."

James Bamford in his book "Body of Secrets"

 

"General Lyman Lemnitzer approved the plans known as Operation Northwoods in 1962, a proposed plan to discredit the Fidel Castro regime and create support for military action against Cuba by staging false flag acts of terrorism and developing "a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington". Lemnitzer presented the plans to Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara on March 13, 1962, but three days later President Kennedy told the general that there was no chance that the US would take military action against Cuba. Within a few months, after the refusal to endorse Operation Northwoods, Lemnitzer was denied another term as JCS chairman. Author Richard Cottrell suspects Lemnitzer of the key role in the Kennedy assassination, out of revenge for the demotion and for being soft on communism."

"Following World War II, masquerading as a rear guard against Soviet invaders, NATO's covert forces warped into psychological and physical terrorism. These were the years of lead, in which hundreds perished in a synthetic war in the streets of Europe. NATO commander General Lyman Lemnitzer ordered serial attacks on French president Charles de Gaulle.
The secret armies forged bonds with organized crime and neo-fascists. NATO-backed coups struck down governments in Greece and Turkey; the island state of Cyprus was sundered amid bitter genocide. Urban guerrillas like the Red Brigades and the Baader-Meinhof Gang were cunningly manipulated. Italy gained a deep-state government, the ultra-secret P2 pseudo-Masonic lodge, founded by former Blackshirts.
Swedish premier Olof Palme and Italian ex-PM Aldo Moro were assassinated. Pope John Paul II was shot by Turkish gangsters who had regular work as Gladio guns for hire. In 2009, a Gladio copy-cat outfit codenamed Ergenekon came to light in Turkey. The shootings in Norway in July 2011, and in Belgium, France and Italy in 2012, all bore the classic stripe of Gladio false-flag operations."

"I ask you, what is the difference between 30 million people dead and 130 million people dead? With 30 million dead, the United States can survive."

Edward Teller, nuclear physicist and 'father' of the H-Bomb, describing how the United States could fight and "survive" a nuclear war

 

"Under Operation GLADIO, the Pentagon together with the CIA, MI6 and NATO, set up and operated stay-behind armies as an instrument to manipulate and control the democracies of Western Europe - unknown to European populations and parliaments. This strategy lead to terror and fear. The stay-behind network, in the absence of a Soviet invasion, functioned as a straightjacket for the democracies of Western Europe. In some operations, the secret stay-behind soldiers together with the secret military services, monitored left-wing politicians and spread anti-Communist propaganda. In more violent operations the secret war led to bloodshed. Tragically the secret warriors linked up with right-wing terrorists, a combination that led - in some countries including at least Belgium, Italy, France, Portugal, Spain, Greece and Turkey - to massacres, torture, coup d'etats and other violent acts. Most of these state-sponsored terrorist operations enjoyed the encouragement and protection of selected highly placed government and military officials in Europe and in the United States The stay-behind network had served as a tool to spread fear amongst the population in the absence of an invasion. The secret armies in some cases functioned as an almost perfect manipulation system that transported the fears of high-ranking military officers in the Pentagon and NATO to the populations in Western Europe. European citizens, as the strategists in the Pentagon saw it, due to their limited vision were unable to perceive the real and present danger of Communism, and therefore they had to be manipulated. By killing innocent citizens on market squares or in supermarkets and blaming the crime on the Communists the secret armies together with right-wing terrorists effectively translated the fears of Pentagon strategists into very real fears of European citizens."

Swiss historian Daniele Ganser in his 2004 book "NATO's Secret Armies"

 

"Operation GLADIO was a clandestine Cold War operation, run by European secret services, collaborating with NATO, the CIA and Britain's MI6 and Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) against a possible Soviet invasion, internal communist takeovers, or the political left gaining power.
The network included France, Germany, Belgium, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Turkey, Greece, Luxemburg, as well as politically neutral European countries Austria, Finland, Sweden and Switzerland.
Named "Gladio" (Latin for double-edged sword), NATO's armies remained secret until August 1990, when then Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti confirmed Italy's participation in testimony before a Senate subcommittee investigating terrorism.
... A 2000 Italian parliamentary investigation concluded that GLADIO operatives linked to the structures of United States intelligence were involved in bombings, massacres, and other terrorist attacks as part of a campaign against the political left."

"Pentagon high-tech weapons can read a license plate on a car from a surveillance satellite; their night vision goggles can penetrate the dark; and their drones can incinerate an isolated village. But they are unable to provide potable water, schools or stability to the nations attacked."

"I want to scare the hell out of the rest of the world."

General Colin Powell, 1991

 

"The military-industrial complex lives very much like a vampire, draining the life's blood from the productive sector and reducing the availability of capital investment where it's really needed. Our foreign policy massively misallocates the distribution of wealth in our society and pumps funds into areas that are not productive, while starving those sectors that would benefit the civilian economy."

Justin Raimondo

 

"The most aggressive nation on the planet after World War II has been the United States ­ not the Soviet Union ­ with more than 100 military or covert interventions in other countries."

Ivan Eland

 

"Sociopaths can kill without experiencing anguish; thus, people who have no conscience make excellent, unambivalent warriors. And nearly all societies make war.
... Sociopaths are fearless and superior warriors, snipers, undercover assassins, special operatives, vigilantes, and hand-to-hand specialists, because they experience no horror while killing (or while ordering killing) and no guilt after the deed is done.
... A person who can look another person in the eye and calmly shoot him dead is unusual, and in war, valuable."

Martha Stout

 

"A professional soldier understands that war means killing people, war means maiming people, war means families left without fathers and mothers."

General Norman Schwarzkopf, senior Commander of Persian Gulf War, 1991

 

"After the 1968 Tet offensive, the United States could no longer rely on its own soldiers to fight in Vietnam. The military had disintegrated to a "state approaching collapse," with "individual units drug ridden and dispirited when not near-mutinous," avoiding or having refused combat and "murdering their officers and non-commissioned officer" through fragging, or detonating a grenade in their barracks."

Jeremy Kuzmarov

 

"Had the United States and the United Kingdom gone on alone to capture Baghdad, under the provisions of the Geneva and Hague conventions we would have been considered occupying powers and therefore would have been responsible for all the costs of maintaining or restoring government, education and other services for the people of Iraq."

General Norman Schwarzkopf, senior Commander of Persian Gulf War, 1991

 

"Military institutions are tailor-made for psychopathic killers. The 5% or so of human males who feel no remorse about killing their fellow human beings make the best soldiers. And the 95% who are extremely reluctant to kill make terrible soldiers - unless they are brainwashed with highly sophisticated modern techniques that turn them into functional psychopaths.
... Wars are ritualized mass murders by psychopaths of non-psychopaths."

Stuart Hertzog

 

"The covert operators that I ran with would blow up a 747 with 300 people to kill one person. They are total sociopaths with no conscience whatsoever."

former Pentagon Investigator Gene Wheaton

 

"Population reduction and genetically engineered crops were clearly part of a broad strategy: the drastic reduction of the world's population. It was in fact a sophisticated form of what the Pentagon termed biological warfare, promulgated under the name of "solving the world hunger problem."

F. William Engdahl in his book "Seeds of Destuction"

 

"While the military is a natural home for the psychopathic killer variety, politicians and bureaucrats, the deceitful and conniving version of psychopathy, have created ample room for themselves in the halls of government. Psychopaths love power-power that can be captured or drained from others."

Hari Heath

 

"Psychology can provide the military with techniques to make killers out of nonkillers, and the military is using these procedures.
... Because its essence is killing, war is the ultimate contest between conscience and authority. Our seventh sense demands that we not take life, and when authority overrules conscience and a soldier is induced to kill in combat, he is very likely to suffer post-traumatic stress disorder immediately and for the remainder of his life."

Martha Stout

 

SURVEILLANCE AGENCIES

NSA (National Security Agency)

 

"The surveillance capability at any time could be turned around on the American people and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything... There would be no place to hide. If this government ever became a tyranny, if a dictator ever took charge in this country, the technological capacity that the intelligence community has given the government could enable it to impose total tyranny, and there would be no way to fight back, because the most careful effort to combine together in resistance to the government, no matter how privately it was done, is within the reach of the government to know. Such is the capability of this technology.
... I don't want to see this country ever go across the bridge. I know the capacity that is there to make tyranny total in America, and we must see to it that this agency [NSA] and all agencies that possess this technology operate within the law and under proper supervision, so that we never cross over that abyss. That is the abyss from which there is no return."

Senator Frank Church, 1975

"Surveillance machines are going to get smarter. They're already starting to recognise people's faces in the street, and systems that spot abnormal behavior will not be far behind... a sophisticated visual security system that predicts when a crime is about to be committed... Once connected to such intelligent systems, closed-circuit television (CCTV) will shift from being a mainly passive device for gathering evidence after a crime, to a tool for crime prevention... The system works by detecting any behaviors that deviate from the 'normal' range of human behavior: the computer recognises them as pattems. If anyone deviates from these patterns, the system sounds the alarm... it spots any abnormal behavior."

New Scientist , 1999

 

"By the "US. national security state" I mean to the Executive Office of the White House, the National Security Council (NSC), National Security Administration, Central Intelligence Agency, Pentagon, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and other such units that are engaged in surveillance, suppression, covert action, and forceful interventions abroad and at home."

Michael Parenti

 

"FEMA became, under President Ronald Reagan, the agency responsible for preserving and refining the 'Garden Plot' strategies for surveillance and detention of domestic protest."

Peter Dale Scott

 

"We are rapidly entering the age of no privacy, where everyone is open to surveillance at all times; where there are no secrets from government."

US Supreme Court Justice William O.Douglas,

 

"War or the threat of war provides both atmosphere and the justification for a variety of government strategies - encroachment on civil liberties, manic surveillance of the population, a climate of fear and jingoism that makes mild dissent seem gross treachery - strategies designed to disarm and destroy internal opposition rather than the external enemy."

Paul O'Flynn

 

"The government claims that all surveillance and other activities ceased after the exposure of illegal domestic intervention by the FBI in the early 1970s, but this is a lie. Throughout the 1980s, Central America solidarity activists in the Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador had their offices broken into and files stolen. In 1990, two environmental activists in Earth First!, Judi Ban and Darryl Cherney, were seriously injured when their car exploded from a pipe bomb believed to be planted by the FBI and police.
... Every state uses domestic surveillance and repression against those who seek to challenge its policies and power. Even the most democratic governments create legal loopholes that allow them to suspend democratic rights when "national security" is threatened, i.e., when their power and the propertied interests they represent are called into question."

Sherry Wolf

 

"Too many people have been spied upon by too many government agencies and too much information has been collected. The government has often undertaken the secret surveillance of citizens on the basis of their political beliefs, even when those beliefs pose no threat of violence or illegal acts on behalf of a hostile foreign power .... Investigations have been based upon vague standards whose breadth made excessive collection inevitable. Unsavory and vicious tactics have been employed - including anonymous attempts to break up marriages, disrupt meetings, ostracize persons from their professions, and provoke target groups into rivalries that might result in deaths. Intelligence agencies have served the political and personal objectives of presidents and other high officials ... Government officials - including those whose principal duty is to enforce the law - have violated or ignored the law over long periods of time and have advocated and defended their right to break the law."

Senator Frank Church, 1976

 

"One of the first booms for the homeland security industry was surveillance cameras, 4.2 million of which have been installed in Britain, one for every fourteen people, and 30 million in the U.S.."

Naomi Klein

 

"American fascism is not just private, elite control over the legal system, nor private evasion of the rule of law. It's a crisis-induced transition from a society with a deeply compromised legal system to a society where force and surveillance completely supplant that system."

Michael C. Ruppert

 

"To this day I do not understand why I was made the subject of the wiretapping, the bugging, or the surveillance, or whether the purpose was really to entrap me or perhaps someone inside the government who might be speaking to me. I am only sure that a monster has been allowed to grow up, and unless it is subject to regular control by impartial persons I think all of us will be the victims."

Washington DC columnist Joseph Kraft in his testimony to the United States Senate in 1974, about surveillance of him by the Nixon Administration

 

US Army Military Intelligence Groups (MIGs) ... employed 798 army officers and 1,532 civilians including 67 black undercover agents. Of this total force, 1,576 were directly involved in domestic intelligence gathering, and of these "spies," some 260 were civilians.
The MIG officers were responsible for eye-to-eye surveillance operations which included audio and visual recordings of people and events designated as targets. Dr King was a target and throughout the last year of his life was under surveillance by one or another MIG team."

William F. Pepper in his book "An Act of State: the Execution of Martin Luther King"

 

"In a future America, enhanced retinal recognition could be married to omnipresent security cameras as a part of the increasingly routine monitoring of public space. Military surveillance equipment, tempered to a technological cutting edge in counterinsurgency wars, might also one day be married to the swelling domestic databases of the NSA and FBI, sweeping the fiber-optic cables beneath our cities for any sign of subversion. And in the skies above, loitering aircraft and cruising drones could be checking our borders and peering down on American life.
... However detached from the wars being fought in their name most Americans may seem, war itself never stays far from home for long. It's already returning in the form of new security technologies that could one day make a digital surveillance state a reality, changing fundamentally the character of American democracy."

Alfred W. McCoy

"Weapons producers make money regardless of whether the Pentagon wins or loses its wars - and making money is their only objective."

Gabriel Kolko

 

"The need for major states as enemies stems partly from the fact that only the perceived presence of enemy states can justify military spending at the level which the industries concerned have come to demand."

David Edwards

 

"Without a long-established war economy, and without its frequent eruption into large-scale shooting war, most of the major industrial advances known to history could never have taken place."

from "Report from Iron Mountain"

 

"The alliance between the threat-inflating ideologues continuously sounding the alarm about an ever more menacing enemy and the needs of a military-industrial complex that required such an enemy in order to secure ever larger contracts was a constant feature of the Cold War years."

Robert Scheer

 

"The so-called "defense" corporations are multinational conglomerates that have no great loyalty to the United States; they are in fact no longer U.S. corporations but transnational entities loyal only to themselves."

John Stockwell - former CIA official

 

"Wars are not 'caused' by international conflicts of interest. War-making societies require - and thus bring about - such conflicts. The capacity of a nation to make war expresses the greatest social power it can exercise; war-making, active or contemplated, is a matter of life and death on the greatest scale subject to social control. It should therefore hardly be surprising that the military institutions in each society claim its highest priorities."

from "Report from Iron Mountain'

 

 

ARE CORPORATIONS PSYCHOPATHIC ?

 

"The money and power of a corporation attract psychopaths. In a corporate environment they have many advantages over their non-psychopathic competitors for promotion. Not surprisingly most corporations end up being run by psychopaths. As with a criminal gang a corporation's culture adopts the twisted values of its leaders. Those who would seek employment must likewise adopt or at least appear to adopt the corporation's essentially psychopathic mindset."

Stefan H. Verstappen

 

"Corrupt corporations feed on money and power, The former comes in part from the US Treasury and ultimately from the general public. To maintain this flow they seek power. The government is where the power is. Individual psychopaths rely on their personality and manipulativeness to get what they need from another person. Psychopathic corporations face a more complex task. They have to influence all three branches of our government, the legislative, the judiciary and the executive, to go along with survival tactics motivated by greed rather than the welfare of the public. Corporations have been in business a long time and have succeeded admirably. We have created a new generation of robber barons but this time they are playing for much higher stakes. The pathological fallout is no longer limited to our own borders. Their reach extends globally, involving us politically, environmentally and militarily with countries rich and poor. Illness knows no geographical limits."

Montague Ullman, M, D.

 

"There seems to be nothing to prevent the transnational corporations taking possession of the planet and subjecting humanity to the dictatorship of capital."

Christian la Brie in an artilce in Le Monde Diplomatique

 

"The transnational corporations carry on inexorably. Increasingly flagless and stateless, they weave global webs of production, commerce, culture and finance virtually unopposed. They expand, invest and grow, concentrating ever more wealth in a limited number of hands. They work in coalition to influence local, national and international institutions and laws. And together with the governments of their home countries in Europe, North America and Japan, as well as international institutions such as the World Trade Organization, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and increasingly, the United Nations, they are molding an international system in which they can trade and invest even more freely--a world where they are less and less accountable to the cultures, communities and nation-states in which they operate. Underpinning this effort is not the historical inevitability of an evolving, enlightened civilization, but rather the unavoidable reality of the overriding corporate purpose: the maximization of profits."

Sierra Club

 

"There are more than 60,000 transnational corporations in the world. More than fifty of the largest one-hundred economies in the world are corporations. Transnational corporations hold ninety percent of all technology and product patents worldwide. Transnational corporations are involved in 70 percent of world trade.
The top 737 of these super-corporations or "super-entities" control 80% of the world economy.
The top 147 super-corporations or "super-entities" control 40% of the global economy through direct and indirect ownership or controlling interest.
Hundreds of companies that own the stocks and bonds of each other - they collectively own themselves. Hence, it becomes nearly impossible to trace the roots of ownership and control. From their relative obscurity, they wield enormous control of national and global economies."

"Negative impact on the body of glyphosate [Monsanto's Roundup] is insidious and manifests slowly over time as inflammation damages cellular systems throughout the body. Consequences are most of the diseases and conditions associated with a Western diet, which include gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer's disease."

from a study by Anthony Samsel and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) scientist Stephanie Seneff

 

"What we are now looking at with glyphosate-based herbicides [Monsanto's Roundup] is a similar situation to what we all faced in the 20th Century with PCBs, DDT and Agent Orange."

"CEOs of most of the world's largest corporations daily make decisions that destroy the lives of many other human beings.
Only about 1 to 3 percent of us are sociopaths -- people who don't have normal human feelings and can easily go to sleep at night after having done horrific things. And of that 1 percent of sociopaths, there's probably only a fraction of a percent with a college education. And of that tiny fraction, there's an even tinier fraction that understands how business works, particularly within any specific industry.
Thus there is such a shortage of people who can run modern monopolistic, destructive corporations that stockholders have to pay millions to get them to work.
And being sociopaths, they gladly take the money without any thought to its social consequences."

Thom Hartmann

 

"This empire that we've created really has an emperor, and it's not the president of this country... it doesn't really matter whether we have a Democrat or a Republican in the White House or running Congress; the empire goes on, because it's really run by what I call the corporatocracy, which is a group of men who run our biggest corporations. This isn't a conspiracy theory. They don't need to conspire. They all know what serves their best interest. But they really are the equivalent of the emperor, because they do not serve at the wish of the people, they're not democratically elected, they don't serve any limited term. They essentially answer to no one, except their own boards, and most corporate CEOs actually run their boards, rather than the other way around."

"The billionaire Koch brothers who habitually rail against government's unfair burden on the wealthy, have almost doubled their net worth to a combined $68 billion. On March 10, 2010, Forbes listed the net worth of Charles and David Koch at $17.5 billion each. This year, Forbes says the Koch brothers are individually worth $34 billion."

Pam Martens, 2013

 

"Charles Koch who is worth over $43 billion says that eliminating the minimum wage is a solution to America's poverty woes.
... The Charles Koch Foundation launched a $200,000 media blitz in Wichita, Kansas, Koch's home state, saying that the minimum wage is the major obstacle to economic growth in America."

'The Daily Take' - Thom Hartmann, 2013

 

"It is no secret that the Koch brothers and others of the super-rich seem to have undertaken a final push to consolidate control through the conversion of a marginally democratic to an essentially fascist state; extreme right-wing, authoritarian, and demagogic. This kind of government is ideal for control of a populace by the moneyed elite. To carry this out requires the employment of many 'kept' politicians to excite and misdirect scared and angry ­ and ignorant ­ voters. Lest the citizenry realize who stole their money and storm their castles with torches, the rapacious elite need politicians who will carry out the work of re-directing anger at teachers, or labor unions, or the poor."

"The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation have been focused on reducing the population of poorer countries through the promotion of drugs such as Depo-Provera... under the guise of family planning. The foundation is also known to fund an NGO committed to children vaccination known as Gavi. This vaccine has been used on children in Malawi, India and Pakistan. In Malawi, these kids were vaccinated at gunpoint in 2011; non-polio paralysis struck some of the kids that were vaccinated.
... The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is committing 10 billion dollars over the next ten years to make it the most aggressive decade ever to roll out new vaccines to poor nations around the world. The commitment will also effectively create widespread fertility problems across vaccinated populations."

Dave Mihalovic

 

"Water is the most important raw material we have today in the world. The question is should we privitize the normal water supply of the population. And there are two different options on the matter. The one opinion which I think is extreme is represented by the NGOs who declare water is a public right. That means that as a human being you should have a right to water. That's an extreme solution. And the other view says that water is a foodstuff like any other, and like any other foodstuff it should have a market value. Personally I believe it is better to give a foodstuff a value so that we are all aware that it has its price."

Peter Brabeck, CEO of Nestle, in a 2005 documentary 'We feed the world'

"If you leave the failed CEOs in place, it isn't just that they're terrible business people, though they are. It isn't just that they lack integrity, though they do. Because they were engaged in these frauds. But they're not going to disclose the truth."

"In late October of 2012, the CEOs of 80 major corporations and banks in the United States banded together in order to pressure Congress to pursue an agenda of harsh austerity measures and structural reforms... Among the demands are to reform Medicare and Medicaid, healthcare, Social Security, increase taxes, and generally reduce spending. All of this amounts to a large federal program of austerity, to cut social spending and increase taxes on the population, thus impoverishing the population."

"Monsanto should not have to vouchsafe the safety of biotech food. Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the F.D.A's [Food and Drug Administration] job."

"The US and UK governments' relentless backing for the global spread of genetically modified seeds was in fact the implementation of a decades long policy of the Rockefeller Foundation since the 1930's, when it funded Nazi eugenics research -- i.e. mass-scale population reduction, and control of darker-skinned races by an Anglo-Saxon white elite. As some of these circles saw it, war as a means of population reduction was costly and not that efficient."

F. William Engdahl in his book "Seeds of Destuction"

 

"The hope of the biotech industry is that over time, the market is so flooded that there's nothing you can do about it. You just sort of surrender."

"The problems with GM foods may be irreversible and the true effects may only be seen well in the future.
The situation is like the tobacco industry. They knew about it but they suppressed that information. They created misleading evidence that showed that the problem wasn't so serious. And all the time they knew how bad it was. Tobacco is bad enough. But genetic modification, if it is going to be problematic, if it is going to cause us real health problems, then tobacco will be nothing in comparison with this. The size of genetic modification and problems it may cause us are tremendous."

Dr. Arpad Pusztai, researcher and the world's expert on lectins

 

"Russian biologist Alexey V. Surov and his colleagues, of the Institute of Ecology and Evolution of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the National Association for Gene Security, set out to discover if Monsanto's genetically modified (GM) soy, grown on 91% of US soybean fields, leads to problems in growth or reproduction. After feeding hamsters for two years over three generations, those on the GM diet, and especially the group on the maximum GM soy diet, showed devastating results. By the third generation, most GM soy-fed hamsters lost the ability to have babies."

"There is no question that HIV was introduced into the U.S. male homosexual population via the gay hepatitis B vaccine experiment that took place between 1978 and 1981... Not surprisingly, the government has refused to release data on the number of AIDS deaths that have occured in the large group of gay men who initially volunteered for the vaccine experiment."

"Thimserosal used as a preservative in vaccines is likely related to the autism epidemic. This epidemic in all probability may have been prevented or curtailed had the FDA not been asleep at the switch regarding the lack of safety data regarding injected thimerosal and the sharp rise of infant exposure to his known neurotoxin. Our public health agencies' failure to act is indicative of institutional malfeasance for self-protection and misplaced protectionism of the pharmaceutical industry."

Subcommittee on Human Rights and Wellness in the House's Committee on Government Reform, May 2003

 

"You couldn't even construct a study that shows Thimerosal is safe. It's just too damn toxic. If you inject Thimerosal into an animal, its brain will sicken. If you apply it to living tissue, the cells die. If you put it in a petri dish, the culture dies. Knowing these things, it would be shocking if one culd inject it into an infant without coausing damage.
...The biological case against Thimerosal is so dramatically overwhelming anymore that only a very foolish or a very dishonest person with the credentials to understand this research would say that Thimerosal wan't most likely the cause of autism.

Boyd Haley, MD, Professor and Chair, Department of Chemistry, University of Kentucky, 2006

 

 

"The Four Horsemen - British Petroleum, Royal Dutch Shell, ChevronTexaco, ExxonMobil - are the top four retailers of gas in the US and own every major pipeline in the world and the vast majority of oil tankers.
... During the 1970s Big Oil invested S2.4 billion in uranium exploration. Today they control over half the world's uranium reserves, key to fueling nuclear power plants... Exxon Mobil is the leading coal producer in the US and has the second largest coal reserves."

Dean Henderson in his book "Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf"

 

"Big Oil, the big oil companies: Exxon-Exxon Mobil, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, BP/Shell, are the biggest companies operating in the United States. The profits are unparalleled, with the defense industry, pharmaceuticals, banks, you name it, no comparison."

"In 1975 Anthony Sampson penned "The Seven Sisters"..., bestowing a collective name on the shadowy oil cartel, which throughout its history has sought to eliminate competitors and control the world's oil resource. After a tidal wave of mergers at the turn of the millennium, Sampson's Seven Sisters were Four Horsemen: Exxon Mobil, Chevron Texaco, BP Amoco and Royal Dutch/Shell."

"The oil market is now cornered by five major companies - Exxon-Mobil, Chevron-Texaco, British Petroleum-Amoco-Arco, Royal Dutch Shell and Conoco-Phillips."

Ravi Batra, 2007

 

"Through a combination of joint ventures, tightly-held technological secrets, vertical and horizontal integration, manipulation of production sites, cheap labor, interlocking bank directorates and outright collusion; the Four Horsemen [of oil] ... are now even more firmly in control of an increasingly oil-dependent world economy than they were 100 years ago. And the same old money families are still riding high in the saddle."

Dean Henderson in his book "Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf"

 

"The operating strategy of the Five Bullies [Exxon-Mobil, Chevron-Texaco, British Petroleum-Amoco-Arco, Royal Dutch Shell and Conoco-Phillips] is to force independent refiners out of business, tighten gasoline supplies, and then jack up the price. Finally, when the profit skyrockets, take ads in newspapers to claim that the profit is reasonable."

Ravi Batra, 2007

 

"The Four Horsemen of oil - British Petroleum, Royal Dutch Shell, ChevronTexaco, ExxonMobil - have interlocking directorates with the international mega-banks. Exxon Mobil shares board members with JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, Royal Bank of Canada and Prudential. Chevron Texaco has interlocks with Bank of America and JP Morgan Chase. BP Amoco shares directors with JP Morgan Chase. RoyalDutch /Shell has ties with Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase, N. M. Rothschild & Sons and Bank of England.

Dean Henderson in his book "Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf"

 

"In 1941, Standard Oil of New Jersey, later renamed Exxon, was the largest oil company in the world. It controlled 84% of the US petroleum market. Its bank was Chase Bank, and its main owners were the Rockefeller group."

Queen Juliana of the Dutch House of Orange and Lord Victor Rothschild are the two largest shareholders of Royal Dutch/Shell.
... By 1920 Exxon, BP and Royal Dutch/Shell dominated the world's booming oil business, with the Rockefeller and Rothschild families and the British and Dutch royals owning most of stock in the Horsemen. Two other Rockefeller babies Mobil and Chevron, weren't far behind the Big Three."

IS THE CORPORATE MAINSTREAM MEDIA PSYCHOPATHIC ?

 

"You can't believe a word the American media says. If they say anything correct, it's just an accident."

Paul Craig Roberts, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration and former editor of the Wall Street Journal

 

"If the New World Order types had some kindness, some humanity, some morality perhaps One World Government is what we need. But mainly these are nasty people with a lust for money and a ruthless disregard for human suffering. Sadly this is all made possible by a mainstream media that is owned and controlled by these very forces. Because the people who own media choose wherever it is that the light is to be shone. So the same stories and the same sound bites across six media conglomerates constitutes what the public is to learn about their world and their country."

Chris Pratt from his movie "Deception"

 

"Establishment journalists and media stars are not on the outside of the establishment, they are members of the establishment. They work for the largest corporations. They live in Washington. Socio-economically, their colleagues and partners and family members are people within the government, within the establishment. And what they want to do is to protect and defend the establishment, more than anything else. To protect the idea that the establishment is functioning properly. And so, their interest is to minimize the public anger and the public rage."

Glenn Greenwald

 

"Newscasters who want to keep their careers afloat learn the fine art of evasion. With great skill they skirt around the most important points of a story. With much finesse, they say a lot about very little, serving up heaps of junk news filled with so many empty calories and so few nutrients. Thus do they avoid offending those who wield politico-economic power."

Project Censored, 2004

 

"What the press do is they tell you lies, lies they already know you want to hear. The press can figure out what its readers or viewers believe, and make a hell of a living pandering to their egos and telling them that they're smart. They lie and tell the audience they are right, and they never have to change your mind about anything. And the audience rewards them, lauding them and paying them money to keep hearing those sweet, self-serving lies."

Allan Uthman

 

"The people who own and control the mainstream media are never going to risk their salaries to explore the unanswered questions of 9-11 or the money trails of JP Morgan Chase Bank, GoldmanSachs, Citibank, Haliburton, Blackwater and Homeland Security, or the Rothschilds, or the Rockefellers or the secrecy of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group, the Trilateral Commission, Skull and Bones, the Bushes and the Carlyle Group or our Federal Reserve System and it's 12 private Federal Reserve Banks or the IMF or the World Bank."

"If deliberate distortion of reality by corporate media could be effectively prosecuted in the United States, the entire industry would be behind bars."

Cynthia McKinney

 

"The American media does not serve the truth. It serves the government and the interest groups that empower the government. The function of the "mainstream media" is to sell products and to brainwash the audience for the government and interest groups. By subscribing to it, Americans support their own brainwashing."

Paul Craig Roberts

 

"The owners of the Washington Post long ago acknowledged that the Post is the government's voice to the people. In 1981, Katherine Graham, who owns the Post and Newsweek announced that her editors would 'cooperate with the national security interests'. National security in this context means 'CIA'."

John Stockwell - former CIA official

"Twelve days of surgical bombing was never going to turn Serbia around... Let's see what 12 weeks of less than surgical bombing does. Give war a chance.

Thomas L. Friedman

 

"Blow up a different power station in Iraq every week, so no one knows when the lights will go off or who's in charge.

"It [Iraq War] might be over in a week, it might be over in a month, it might be over in six months, but what's the rush?"

Thomas L. Friedman, 2004

 

"Thomas Friedman's collected works constitute a veritable dictionary of the market-populist myths of the age, awesome in its inclusiveness: Enthusiasm for the "rebranding' of Britain, pointless ponderings about the physical weight of each country's GNP, facile equating of Great Society America with the Soviet Union. Each of them is preposterous in its own way, but thrown together they make a truly dispiriting impression... This is what the ruling class calls thinking, that this handful of pathetic, palpably untrue prejudices are all they have to guide them as they shuttle back and forth between the State Department and the big think tanks, discussing what they mean to do with us and how they plan to dispose of our country."

Thomas Frank

 

"The weakening of labor pleases Thomas Friedman, who mentions this as one of Thatcher's accomplishments. He regards Reagan's breaking the air controllers strike in 1981 as his finest achievement, "helping break the hold of organized labor on the U.S. economy'."

"These big-mouthed, phony scum of the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) should be rounded up, arrested for sedition. Their property seized, and they should be put into Abu Ghraib prison as far as I'm concerned. That wouldn't be enough of what I'd like to see done to the ACLU. They're the worst vermin America has ever tolerated. The worst vermin in the history of America are the vermin in the ACLU."

ARE PHILANTHROPIC FOUNDATIONS PSYCHOPATHIC ?

Gates Foundation / Carnegie Foundation / Ford Foundation / Rockefeller Foundation / Open Society Foundation (George Soros)

 

"The US and UK governments' relentless backing for the global spread of genetically modified seeds was in fact the implementation of a decades long policy of the Rockefeller Foundation since the 1930's, when it funded Nazi eugenics research -- i.e. mass-scale population reduction, and control of darker-skinned races by an Anglo-Saxon white elite. As some of these circles saw it, war as a means of population reduction was costly and not that efficient."

F. William Engdahl in his book "Seeds of Destuction"

 

"First we got population. The world today has 6.8 billion people. That's headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent."

Bill Gates

 

"The global financial elite of the Ford, Carnegie and Rockefeller foundations are making the plans for a one world government. The real name of the game is "1984". We will have systematic population reduction, forced sterilization or anything else which the planners deem necessary to establish absolute control in their humanitarian utopia. But to enforce these plans, you must have an all-powerful world government."

Gary Allen in his book "None Dare Call It Conspiracy"

 

"The Rockefeller Foundation, working with John D. Rockefeller Ill's Population Council, the World Bank, the UN Development Program and the Ford Foundation, and others had been working with the WHO [World Health Organization] for 20 years to develop an anti-fertility vaccine using tetanus as well as with other vaccines."

F. William Engdahl

 

"The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation have been focused on reducing the population of poorer countries through the promotion of killer drugs such as Depo-Provera. The foundation is partnering with the British government to raise $4 billion to finance their birth control plan by 2020. This is under the guise of family planning. The foundation is also known to fund an NGO committed to children vaccination known as Gavi. This vaccine has been used on children in Malawi, India and Pakistan. In Malawi, these kids were vaccinated at gunpoint in 2011; Non-polio paralysis struck some of the kids that were vaccinated."

Dave Mihalovic

 

"The Rockefeller foundation scientists developed the idea of molecular biology from the fundamental assumption that almost all human problems could be "solved" by genetic and chemical manipulation... The people in and around the Rockefeller institutions saw it as the ultimate means of social control and social engineering -- eugenics."

F. William Engdahl in his book "Seeds of Destuction"

 

"The organization of tax-exempt fortunes of international financiers into foundations was to be used for educational, scientific, and other public purposes... The inheritance tax drove the great private fortunes dominated by Wall Street into tax-exempt foundations, which became a major link in the Establishment network between Wall Street, the Ivy League, and the federal government... The foundations managed to acquire control over the primary Ivy League colleges, including Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Princeton."

Carroll Quigley, historian and Georgetown University professor, in his book "Tragedy and Hope"

 

"The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is committing 10 billion dollars over the next ten years to make it the most aggressive decade ever to roll out new vaccines to poor nations around the world. The commitment will also effectively create widespread fertility problems across vaccinated populations."

Dave Mihalovic

 

"After years of controversy in the United States, the use of oral polio vaccine (OPV) was discontinued in 2000 due to its proven link with vaccine-derived poliovirus (VDPV). The use of an injected and inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) replaced its usage in the Western world, while oral polio vaccine continues to be used in the developing world.
... There was a claim in the Indian medical press [April 2012] that some 47,500 children had been paralyzed as a direct result of the polio vaccination campaign that had swept through their populous country. India's National Polio Surveillance Project found that a sharp rise in the cases of non-polio paralysis correlated with areas where doses of oral polio vaccine were also increased.
... The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the UN's World Health Organization knew that oral polio vaccines caused paralysis."

ARE RELIGIOUS LEADERS PSYCHOPATHS ?

David Miscavige / Sun Myung Moon / John Hagee / Jerry Falwell / Pat Robertson

 

"When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross."

Sinclair Lewis

 

"The Vatican has billions of shares in the most powerful international corporations.
... The wealth of the Vatican in the U.S. alone, is greater than that of the five wealthiest giant corporations of the country. When to that is added all the real estate, property, stocks and shares abroad, then the staggering accumulation of the wealth of the Catholic church becomes so formidable as to defy any rational assessment.
... The Catholic church is the biggest financial power, wealth accumulator and property owner in existence. She is a greater possessor of material riches than any other single institution, corporation, bank, giant trust, government or state of the whole globe. The pope, as the visible ruler of this immense amassment of wealth, is consequently the richest individual of the twentieth century. No one can realistically assess how much he is worth in terms of billions of dollars.
"

from the book "The Vatican Billions" by Avro Manhattan, 1983

 

"We have the ability to take him out [Venezuelan President Hugo Chevez], and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability.
... If he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war ... and I don't think any oil shipments will stop."

Pat Robertson

 

"Christians, like slaves and soldiers, ask no questions."

Jerry Falwell

 

"Not a single leader of the Third Reich - not even Hitler himself - was ever excommunicated."

Sam Harris in his book "The End of Faith"

 

"Representative democracy, exercised within the context of the separation of church and state, and the protection of individual human rights, can act as safeguards against the destructive power of religion. Where these safeguards are not in place, religion becomes a simple and effective route for the pathological minority to seize power and tyrannise societies."

Ian Hughes

 

"AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals."

Jerry Falwell

 

"Most religions offer no valid mechanism by which their core beliefs can be tested and revised, each new generation of believers is condemned to inherit the superstitions and tribal hatreds of its predecessors."

Sam Harris in his book "The End of Faith"

 

"Since most if not all 'great' religions are constructed on falsehoods, compulsive liars make the perfect proselytizers. A look at recently created religions such as Mormonism and Scientology show their founders, Joseph Smith and L. Ron Hubbard respectively, were at least compulsive liars, and more likely full-blown psychopaths. Charismatic cult leaders such as Jim Jones and Sung Yung Moon were indeed psychopaths, while televangelist preachers that rake in millions from their gullible flocks are at best con artists of the highest caliber."

"This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector."

Plato

 

"The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power.
We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal.
We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power."

George Orwell in his book "1984"

 

"The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. [The public] will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened."

Josef Stalin

 

"Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death."

Adolf Hitler

 

"Paul Kagame, the hero of the official story of Rwanda's genocide, was almost certainly the biggest war criminal to have emerged from those horrifying events. Kagame led the Tutsis' main militia, the RPF. He almost certainly ordered the shooting down of the Rwandan president's plane, the trigger for a civil war that quickly escalated into a genocide; on the best estimates, his RPF was responsible for killing 80% of the 1 million who died inside Rwanda, making the Hutus, not the Tutsis, the chief victims; and his subsequent decision to extend the civil war into neighbouring Congo, where many Hutu civilians had fled to escape the RPF, led to the deaths of up to 5 million more."

Jonathan Cook, 2014

 

"Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun."

Mao Zedong

 

"The perpetrator of the Rwandan genocide, Paul Kagame, is the President of Rwanda.
Western governments and media have covered up his crimes and praise him as a great humanitarian who has healed Rwanda and is totally supported by the people. The truth is that Kagame has proved himself a worse totalitarian that Hitler, Stalin, and Poll Pot combined. He has turned Rwanda into a fear-ridden psychological prison.
Paul Kagame is a genocidist who has killed more than five times as many people as Idi Amin."

Paul Craig Roberts

 

"Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power."

Benito Mussolini

 

"Tony Blair, Bill Clinton, Kofi Annan and many others have helped to whitewash Paul Kagame's crimes against humanity and provide a veneer of legitimacy to his current oppressive rule in Rwanda. Anyone who has threatened to blow the lid, like Carla del Ponte, the chief prosecutor at the UN's international tribunal on Rwanda, has been forced out."

Jonathan Cook, 2014

 

"If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed."

Adolf Hitler

 

"In Africa ... the absence of properly functioning states leaves individuals at the mercy of thugs and thieves, whether in the form of the brutality of armed militias or the corruption of government officials... The persistence of poverty in Africa is thwarting attempts to achieve the levels of health and education, the cultures of freedom and autonomy, the institutions of law and democratic governance, and the conditions for sustainable economic growth which are needed to finally remove the continent's pathological elites from power.
... Africa will need assistance to escape the tyranny of its pathological elites. A necessary first step is for rich nations to cease assisting Africa's psychopaths, by refraining from hiding their fortunes in Western banks and from selling arms to tyrants to terrorise their own populations."

"In the Middle East, Washington has, since the 1950s, followed the British imperial preference for Arab aristocrats by cultivating allies that included a shah (Iran), sultans (Abu Dhabi, Oman), emirs (Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Dubai), and kings (Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Morocco). Across this vast, volatile region from Morocco to Iran, Washington courted these royalist regimes with military alliances, U.S. weapons systems, CIA support for local security, a safe American haven for their capital, and special favors for their elites, including access to educational institutions in the U.S. or Department of Defense overseas schools for their children."

Alfred W. McCoy and Brett Reilly

 

"I don't want educated people. I want oxen."

Anastasio Somoza Sr, dictator of Nicaragua, 1936

 

"UN documents and testimony now in evidence at the UN Rwanda Tribunal, show that [Rwandan President Paul] Kagame, himself, touched off the "Rwanda genocide" by assassinating the former Rwandan President and launching an assault to seize power within minutes after shooting down President Habyarimana's plane [in]1994.
... Because Kagame's Rwanda crimes were covered-up by the U.S. in 1994, and because he was not prosecuted at the ICTR [International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda] for the assassination of the previous president in 1994, he has been free to rape the Congo of its riches and to massacre millions."

Peter Erlinder

 

"The mastermind of the genocide of the Rwandan interior Tutsis is [Paul] Kagame himself."

Guillaume Murere

 

"Major General Paul Kagame had personally ordered the shooting down of [Rwandan] President Habyarimana's plane with a view to taking control of the country. He was fully aware that the assassination of Habyarimana would unleash "a genocide" against Tutsi civilians.
... Kagame was an instrument of Washington. The loss of African lives did not matter. The civil war in Rwanda and the ethnic massacres were an integral part of US foreign policy, carefully staged in accordance with precise strategic and economic objectives."

Michel Chossudovsky

 

"Psychopaths, pathological narcissists, and people with severe paranoid personality are psychologically incapable of conceiving of the fundamental essentials of democratic citizenship and will therefore be at the vanguard of those opposed to the success of democratisation."

ARE DYNASTIC RULERS PSYCHOPATHS ?

King Leopold II-Belgium / Shah of Iran / King Abdullah-Saudi Arabia

 

"At the center of oligarchy is the idea that certain families are born to rule as an arbitrary elite, while the vast majority of any given population is condemned to oppression, serfdom, or slavery. Oligarchs identify wealth purely in money terms, and practice usury, monetarism, and looting.
... The essence of oligarchism is summed up in the idea of the empire, in which an elite identifying itself as a master race rules over a degraded mass of slaves or other oppressed victims. If oligarchical methods are allowed to dominate human affairs, they always create a breakdown crisis of civilization, with economic depression, war, famine, plague, and pestilence. A pillar of the oligarchical system is the family fortune. The continuity of the family fortune which earns money through usury and looting is often more important than the biological continuity across generations of the family that owns the fortune."

"The Venetian Black Nobility and the Concept of Oligarchy" an article by Dr. Webster Griffin Tarpley & James Higham

"The beginning of massive violence in Zaire (Democratic Republic of Congo) was instigated in this country in 1879 by its colonizer King Leopold of Belgium. The Congo's population was reduced by 10 million people over a period of 20 years which some have referred to as "Leopold's Genocide".

James A. Lucas

 

"The Black Nobility are the oligarchic families of Venice and Genoa, who in the 12th century held privileged trading rights (monopolies). The first of three crusades, from 1063 to 1123, established the power of the Venetian Black Nobility and solidified the power of the wealthy ruling class. In 1204 the oligarchic families parceled out feudal enclaves to their members, and from this date, they built up power until government became a closed corporation of the leading Black Nobility families.
The European Black Nobility is responsible for the insidious entanglements of numerous secret societies and organizations, which are backed with high finance and powerful political connections. Such organizations include: Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg Group, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), United Nations, International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank, Bank of International Settlements (BIS), Club of Rome, Chatham House, and many others. Present day European Black Nobility families are connected with the House of Guelph, one of the original Black Nobility families of Venice from which the House of Windsor and thus the present Queen of the United Kingdom Elizabeth II descends."

John Coleman in his book "The Committee of 300"

 

"The bulwark of the British financial oligarchy lies in its ageless and self-perpetuating nature, its long-range planning and prescience, its facility to outwait and break the patience of its opponents. The transient and temporal statesmen of Europe and particularly of Britain itself, who have attempted to curb this monstrosity have all been defeated by their limited tenure of confidence. Obligated to show action and results in a too short span of years, they have been outwitted and outwaited, deluged with irritants and difficulties; eventually obliged to temporize and retreat. There are few who have opposed them in Britain and America, without coming to a disgraceful end, but many, who served them well, have also profited well."

E.C. Knuth in his book "The Empire of The City", 1946

"The intent and purpose of the Committee of 300 is One World Government and a one-unit monetary system, under permanent non-elected hereditary oligarchists. In this One World system, population will be limited by restrictions on the number of children per family, diseases, wars, and famines, until one billion people who are useful to the ruling class, in areas which will be strictly and clearly defined, remain as the total world population.
There will be no middle class, only rulers and the servants. All laws will be uniform under a legal system of world courts practicing the same unified code of laws, backed up by a One World Government police force and a One World unified military. Those who are obedient and subservient to the One World Government will be rewarded with the means to live; those who are rebellious will simply be starved to death or be declared outlaws and targeted for elimination."

John Coleman in his book " The Committee of 300"

 

"In fourteen years Leopold [II King of Belgium] has deliberately destroyed more lives [in the Belgian Congo] than have suffered death on all the battlefields of this planet for the past thousand years. In this vast statement I am well within the mark, several millions of lives with the mark. It is curious that the most advanced and most enlightened century of all the centuries the sun has looked upon should have the ghastly distinction of having produced this moldy and peity-mouthing hypocrite, this bloody monster whose mate is not findable in human history anywhere, and whose personality will surely shame hell itself when he arrives there--which will be soon, let us hope and trust."

Mark Twain in his book "Eruption"

 

"Beside [Belgian King] Leopold II - Nero, Caligula, Attilo, Torquemada, Genghis Khan and such killers of men are mere amateurs."

"The people of England and indeed the English-speaking world are so brainwashed that they believe the British Royal Family is just a nice, harmless and colorful institution, and so fail to realize just how corrupt, and how all-pervading is this institution called the British Monarchy."

John Coleman in his book " The Committee of 300"

 

"The development of democracy in Europe and the United States took place over centuries and involved a long-drawn-out struggle between pathologically disordered and entrenched elites and the majority populations. The process was protracted and violent, primarily because it is not in the nature of those with dangerous personality disorders to compromise or relinquish power readily."

ARE EUROPEAN LEADERS PSYCHOPATHS ?

Winston Churchill

 

Nicholas Sarkozy / Margaret Thatcher / Tony Blair

 

"How many people do you have to kill before you qualify to be described as a mass murderer and a war criminal? One hundred thousand? More than enough, I would have thought. Therefore it is just that [George W.] Bush and [Tony] Blair be arraigned before the International Criminal Court of Justice. But Bush has been clever. He has not ratified the International Criminal Court of Justice. Therefore if any American soldier or for that matter politician finds himself in the dock Bush has warned that he will send in the marines. But Tony Blair has ratified the Court and is therefore available for prosecution. We can let the Court have his address if they're interested. It is Number 10, Downing Street, London."

Harold Pinter's Noble Lecture, December 7, 2005

 

"Tony Blair's contribution to the betterment of mankind, has included joining the United States in the Afghanistan invasion and between 1997 and 2003, in the silent cull of an average of six thousand Iraqi children a month [sanctions], instructing Britain's UN officials to veto everything from vaccines to ventolin, insulin to incubators and intubators, paper to pencils, female hygiene appliances, to aids for children at the schools for the blind and deaf. A further million Iraqis have died since the invasion, almost certainly an underestimate.
... Tony Blair has profiteered as a result of the Iraq War in which so many hundreds of thousands of people died. in the league of shame, Tony Blair is arguably the worst of them all."

Peter Osborne, March 2010

 

"The corporate-dominated economy and the transnational corporate state had consolidated its power over almost every aspect of public and private life, and under a formal globalization movement the transnational corporations were extending their tentacles all over the planet.
Footsoldiers like Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan, the ever-dutiful Bush family, Helmut Kohl, and a list of Japanese leaders had diligently kept the faith. Working with the timeworn International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank and ultimately with the new engine of globalization, the World Trade Organization, they ensured that the interests of capital were nowhere endangered by the needs of the world's three billion poor to eat, have shelter, clothing, sanitation, medical care, and education."

William F. Pepper in his book "An Act of State: the Execution of Martin Luther King"

 

"Tony Blair is a glorified salesman, selling the same snake oil to different customers.
First, he is [in Israel] to provide a façade of Western concern about mending the Middle East. He suggests that the West is committed to action even as it fails to intervene and the situation of the Palestinians generally, and those in Gaza in particular, deteriorates rapidly. He sells us the continuing dispossession of the Palestinians in a bottle labelled "peace".
He is also here as a sort of European proconsul to advise the Americans on how to repackage their policies. The US has become aware that it has lost all credibility with the rest of the world on this issue. Blair's job is to redesign the bottle labelled "US honest broker" so that we will be prepared to buy the product again.
His next task is to try to wheedle out of Israel any minor concession he can secure on behalf of the Palestinians and persuade Tel Aviv to cooperate in selling an empty bottle labelled "hope" as a breakthrough in the peace process.
And finally, he is here to create the impression that his chief task is to defend the interests of the Palestinians. To this end, he collects the three bottles, puts them in some pretty wrapping paper and writes on the label "Palestinian state"."

Jonathan Cook, 2010

 

"Who is society? There is no such thing! There are individual men and women; there are families?"

British prime minister Margaret Thatcher, 1987

 

"The corruption and inhumanity under Margaret Thatcher knew no borders. When she came to power in 1979, Thatcher demanded a total ban on exports of milk to Vietnam. The American invasion had left a third of Vietnamese children malnourished. I witnessed many distressing sights, including infants going blind from a lack of vitamins. "I cannot tolerate this," said an anguished doctor in a Saigon paediatric hospital, as we looked at a dying boy. Oxfam and Save the Children had made clear to the British government the gravity of the emergency. An embargo led by the US had forced up the local price of a kilo of milk up to ten times that of a kilo of meat. Many children could have been restored with milk. Thatcher's ban held."

John Pilger

 

"In Cambodia, Margaret Thatcher left a trail of blood, secretly. In 1980, she demanded that the defunct Pol Pot regime - the killers of 1.7 million people - retain its "right" to represent their victims at the UN. Her policy was vengeance on Cambodia's liberator, Vietnam. The British representative was instructed to vote with Pol Pot at the World Health Organisation, thereby preventing it from providing help to where it was needed more than anywhere on earth."

John Pilger

 

"In his arms-to-Iraq enquiry, Lord Richard Scott heard evidence that an entire tier of the Thatcher government, from senior civil servants to ministers, had lied and broken the law in selling weapons to Saddam Hussein. These were her "boys". Thumb through old copies of the Baghdad Observer, and there are pictures of her boys, mostly cabinet ministers, on the front page sitting with Saddam on his famous white couch."

John Pilger

 

"I do not understand the squeamishness about the use of gas. I am strongly in favor of using poisoned gas against uncivilized tribes. The moral effect should be good, and it would spread a lively terror."

"I do not want suggestions as to how we can disable the German economy and the machinery of war, what I want are suggestions as to how we can roast the German refugees on their escape from Breslau."

Winston Churchill, as British Home Secretary

 

"I do not admit that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher-grade race, a more worldly wise race, has come in and taken their place."

Winston Churchill, addressing the Peel Commission on why Britain was justified in deciding the fate of Palestine, 1937

"On the subject of India, Winston Churchill is not quite sane. I didn't see much difference between his outlook and Hitler's."

British Secretary of State to India


"Prime Minister Winston Churchill ordered the saturation bombing of Dresden, Germany, where, on February 13 1945, more than 500,000 German civilians and refugees, mostly women and children, were slaughtered in one day by the British Royal Air Force (RAF) and the United States Army Air Force (USAAF), who dropped over 700,000 phosphorus bombs on the city.
... Instead of being charged with being responsible for ordering one of the most horrific war crimes of recent history, in which up to half a million people died screaming in his firestorms, Churchill emerged from the war as a hero. An unwavering supporter of the British monarchy throughout his life, he was made a knight of the Order of the Garter, Britain's highest order of knighthoods, by Queen Elizabeth II in 1953."

"The worst criminals of our time are the US and UK governments. Both are devoid of all integrity, all honor, all mercy, all humanity. Many members of both governments would have made perfect functionaries in Stalinist Russia or Nazi Germany."

ARE COVERT GLOBAL POWER CENTERS PSYCHOPATHIC ?

Council on Foreign Relations / Bilderberg Group

 

"The master planners devised the strategy of a merger - a Great Merger- among nations.
But before such a merger can be consummated, and the United States becomes just another province in a New World Order, there must at least be the semblance of parity among the senior partners in the deal. How does one make the nations of the world more nearly equal? The Insiders determined that a two-prong approach was needed; use American money and know-how to build up your competitors, while at the same time use every devious strategy you can devise to weaken and impoverish this country. The goal is not to bankrupt the United States. Rather, it is to reduce our productive might, and therefore our standard of living, to the meager subsistence level of the socialized nations of the world.
Only a fascist-socialist dictatorship would have the power to accomplish such a "redistribution." Notice that the plan is not to bring the standard of living in less developed countries up to our level, but to bring ours down to meet theirs coming up.
You may be assured, however, that the Rockefellers and their allies are not talking about reducing their own quality of life. It is your standard of living which must be sacrificed on the altar of the New World Order.
The Rockefeller game plan is to use population, energy, food, and financial controls as a method of people control which will lead, steadily and deliberately, into the Great Merger."

Gary Allen in his book "The Rockefeller File"

 

"What the Bilderberg group intends is a global army at the disposal of the United Nations, which is to become the world government to which all nations will be subservient.
... A UN army must be able to act immediately, anywhere in the world, without the delay involved in each country making its own decision whether to participate, based on parochial considerations?"

Henry Kissinger at a Bilderberg meeting, Spotlight Reprint, August 1991

 

"A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells; the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people. We must shift our efforts from the treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer. The operation will demand many apparently brutal and heartless decisions... The resultant ideal sustainable population will be more than 500 million but less than one billion."

Club of Rome statement - Mankind at the Turning Point, 1974 & Goals for Mankind, 1976

 

"Club of the Isles is a European cartel - centered within the City of London and headed by the House of Windsor - which controls every aspect of the global economy -- banks, insurance and pharmaceutical companies, raw materials, transportation, factories, major retail groups, the stock and commodities markets, politicians and governments, media, intelligence agencies, drugs and organized crime."

"The Windsors' Global Food Cartel: Instrument for Starvation" an article from Executive Intelligence Review, 1995

 

"The Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderberger Group, have prepared for and are now implementing open world dictatorship... They are not fighting against terrorists. They are fighting against citizens."

Dr. Johannes Koeppi, former German Defense Ministry official and adviser to NATO

 

"You will not read about the Club of the Isles in any textbook or popular magazine. It is unincorporated and it has no membership lists. Yet, as an informal association of predominantly European-based royal households and princely families, the Club of the Isles commands an estimated $10 trillion in assets. It lords over such corporate giants as Royal Dutch Shell, Imperial Chemical Industries, Lloyds of London, Unilever, Lonrho, Rio Tinto Zinc, and Anglo American DeBeers. It dominates the world supply of petroleum, gold, diamonds, and many other vital raw materials; and deploys these assets not merely in the pursuit of wealth, but as resources at the disposal of its geopolitical agenda. Its goal: to reduce the human population from its current level of over 5 billion people to below 1 billion people within the next two to three generations in the interest of retaining their own global power and the feudal system upon which that power is based."

IS THE DRUG TRADE CONTROLLED BY PSYCHOPATHS ?

opium poppies

 

"The drug "industry" is ... under the control of a single world network.
... The drug-related illegal economy is the biggest business in the world.
... The British monarchy organized most of the Far East to conform to the drug traffic.
... The Anglo-Dutch "offshore" banking system and related precious metals and gems trade were designed around illegal money.
... The world drug traffic is a top-down operation under the immediate control of the British and allied monarchies."

www.bibliotecapleyades.net - How the Drug Empire Works

 

"If governments really wanted to eradicate the vile drug trade, they could make laws that would oblige manufacturers of acetic anhydride, the most essential chemical in the manufacture of heroin, to keep meticulous records showing who buys the chemical, for what purpose and where it is going. But such unilateral action on the part of any maverick government would greatly displease the oligarchic families of Europe and the United States Establishment because these people are earning hundreds of billions of dollars each year from the drug trade."

Daniel Estulin

 

"Money laundering, according to IMF estimates for the 1990s, was between 590 billion and 1.5 trillion dollars a year. The proceeds of the drug trade are deposited in the banking system. Drug money is laundered in the numerous offshore banking havens in Switzerland, Luxembourg, the British Channel Islands, the Cayman Islands and some 50 other locations around the globe. It is here that criminal syndicates involved in the drug trade and the representatives of the world's largest commercial banks interact. Dirty money is deposited in these offshore havens, which are controlled by major Western banks and financial institutions which have a vested interest in maintaining and sustaining the drug trade."

Michel Chossudovsky

 

"The Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank [HSBC] and related companies finance the opium trade. In this, they are acting as designated agents of the British monarchy, through the Royal Institute of International Affairs.
The world illegal drug traffic is controlled by a single group of men whose intimate ties of ownership, family, and political collaboration go back 200 years."

www.bibliotecapleyades.net "How the Drug Empire Works"

 

"Narco-dollars are channeled into "private banking" accounts in numerous offshore banking havens controlled by the large Western banks and financial institutions. The major Wall Street and European banks and stock brokerage firms launder billions of dollars resulting from the trade in narcotics."

"The Destabilization of Haiti" an article by Michel Chossudovsky

 

"If 700 billion dollars a year in illegal drug money is moved and laundered through the American and world economy, that money benefits financial markets and especially Wall Street. That's the reason for maintaining the illegal drug trade."

Daniel Estulin

 

"No government has ever touched the system which allowed the drug trade to develop. Money-laundering is not even a criminal offense in 8 out of the 15 industrial nations. In the United States, the center of the problem, government action, is a joke: No top management has ever been charged or prosecuted for criminal money-laundering activity."

from the book "DOPE, INC.: the international drug cartel, money-laundering, and state power", 1992

 

"Washington's "war on drugs" is directed towards increasing U.S. power in Latin America. The use of drug money laundered through U.S. banks finances Washington's trade imbalances, while the drug war increases Washington's general influence over economic policy, allowing U.S.-based transnational corporations (TNCs) to buy Latin American public enterprises at scandalously low prices and to penetrate markets."

"Globalization Unmasked" an araticle by James Petras and Henry Veltmeyer

 

ARE THE INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES PSYCHOPATHIC ?

 

"The global drug trade is controlled and run by the intelligence agencies. In this global drug trade British intelligence reigns supreme... In Britain, the MI-6 drug money is laundered through the Bank of England, Barclays Bank and other household name companies. The drug money is passed from account to account until its origins are lost in a huge web of transactions.
The drug money comes out 'cleaner' but not totally clean. Diamonds are then bought with this money from the corrupt diamond business families like the Oppenheimers. These diamonds are then sold and the drug money is clean."

James Casbolt, former MI6 Agent

 

"The world order doesn't allow for any frontal attack aimed at destroying narco-trafficking because that business, which moves $400 billion annually, is far too important for the leading nations of world power to eliminate. The US punishes those countries which don't do enough to fight against drugs, whereas their CIA boys have built paradises of corruption throughout the world with the drug profits."

Ecuadorian Presidential Candidate Manuel Salgado

 

"Drug trafficking constitutes the third biggest global commodity in cash terms after oil and the arms trade. Supported by powerful interests, heroin is a multibillion-dollar business, which requires a steady and secure commodity flow. One of the hidden objectives of the war In Afghanistan was effectively to restore the CIA sponsored drug trade to its historical levels and exert direct control over the drug routes."

Michel Chossudovsky

 

"In my 30-year history in the Drug Enforcement Administration and related agencies, the major targets of my investigations almost invariably turned out to be working for the CIA."

Dennis Dayle, a former DEA agent in the Middle East

 

"The global drugs trade controlled by British intelligence is worth at least 500 billion a year. This is more than the global oil trade. The economy in Britain and America is totally dependent on this drug money."

James Casbolt

 

"Intelligence agencies and powerful business syndicates, which are allied with organized crime, are competing for the strategic control over the heroin routes."

Michel Chossudovsky

 

"The major function of secrecy in Washington is to keep the U.S. people ... from knowing what the nation's leaders are doing."

John Stockwell - former CIA official

 

"It isn't only Gestapo maniacs who do inhuman things to people. We [the CIA] are responsible for doing inhuman things on a massive scale to people all over the world."

John Stockwell - former CIA official

 

"It is the function of the CIA to keep the world unstable, and to propagandize and teach the American people to hate, so we will let the Establishment spend any amount of money on arms."

John Stockwell - former CIA official

 

"Coming to grips with ... U.S./CIA activities in broad numbers and figuring out how many people have been killed in the jungles of Laos or the hills of Nicaragua is very difficult. But, adding them up as best we can, we come up with a figure of six million people killed-and this is a minimum figure. Included are: one million killed in the Korean War, two million killed in the Vietnam War, 800,000 killed in Indonesia, one million in Cambodia, 20,000 killed in Angola ... and 22,000 killed in Nicaragua. These people would not have died if U.S. tax dollars had not been spent by the CIA to inflame tensions, finance covert political and military activities and destabilize societies."

John Stockwell - former CIA official

 

"The CIA had been running thousands of operations over the years... there have been about 3,000 major covert operations and over 10,000 minor operations... all designed to disrupt, destabilize, or modify the activities of other countries... But they are all illegal and they all disrupt the normal functioning, often the democratic functioning, of other societies. They raise serious questions about the moral responsibility of the United States in the international society of nations."

"All that is necessary for success of "false flag" or "black ops" events is for the government to have its story ready and to have a reliable and compliant media. Once an official story is in place, thought and investigation are precluded. Any formal inquiry that is convened serves to buttress the already provided explanation."

Paul Craig Roberts

 

"The easiest way to carry out a false flag attack is by setting up a military exercise that simulates the very attack you want to carry out ... this is exactly how government perpetrators in the US and UK handled the 9/11 and 7/7 "terror" attacks, which were in reality government attacks blamed on 'terrorists'.
... The "next 9/11" -- constantly promised by officials and the media -- is likely to be carried out under the guise of future military exercises."

Captain Eric H. May, a former Army military intelligence and public affairs officer, 2008

Adolf Hitler

 

"The high officials, media executives and military officers who are bound by law and ethics to serve the American people have become a textbook example of a grand conspiracy. To look at it from their point of view, they are historic actors who are beyond good and evil, who must stimulate the American people to a necessary geostrategic adventure by any means necessary. To them, the official account of the 9/11 "terror" attacks is what Plato once described as the "noble lie," a necessary falsehood told to a childlike public in order to direct it maturely."

Captain Eric H. May, a former Army military intelligence and public affairs officer, 2008

 

"The plan [Operation Northwoods] which had been written with the approval of the Chairman and every member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called for innocent people to be shot on American streets."

James Bamford

 

"Throughout the 1990s both the U.S. oil industry and the Pentagon had contributed to the consensus that America would need full-spectrum dominance to guarantee access to oil and other resources in the rest of the world. This program would require massive expenditures, perhaps as much as a trillion dollars, and this could not be expected from Congress - except in response to an attack as massive and frightening as Pearl Harbor.
With respect to the events of 9/11 it is clear that the Bush Administration's settled goal of invading Iraq depended on the attack. What we have been witnessing, to quote the Oslo researcher Ola Tunander is "the use of terrorism to construct world order."

Peter Dale Scott

 

"All three buildings [World Trade Center] were destroyed by carefully planned, orchestrated and executed controlled demolition."

Professor Lynn Margulis from the Department of Geosciences at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst

 

"The pattern of damage [Oklahoma City bombing] would have been technically impossible without supplementary demolition charges at some of the reinforced concrete bases inside the building, a standard demolition technique. For a simplistic blast truck bomb, of the size and composition reported, to be able to reach out on the order of 60 feet and collapse a reinforced column base the size of column A7 is beyond credulity.
... There was a massive cover-up of immense proportions."

General Benton K. Partin, in charge of U.S. Air Force munitions design and testing, in a report on the Murrah building bombing [Oklahoma City 1995]

 

"9/11 was all planned. This was a government-ordered operation. Bush personally signed the order. He personally authorized the attacks. He is guilty of treason and mass murder."

"The former Italian Prime Minister, an Italian judge, and the former head of Italian counterintelligence admit that NATO, with the help of the Pentagon and CIA [Operation Gladio], carried out terror bombings in Italy and other European countries in the 1950s and blamed the communists, in order to rally people's support for their governments in Europe in their fight against communism.

IS AMERICA A PSYCHOPATHIC SOCIETY ?

 

"The American way of life has optimized the survival of psychopathy, and in a world of psychopaths, those who are not genetic psychopaths, are induced to behave like psychopaths simply to survive. When the rules are set up to make a society "adaptive" to psychopathy, it makes psychopaths of everyone. As a consequence, a very large number of Americans are effective sociopaths."

Laura Knight-Jadczyk

 

"The US and its allies will turn into authoritarian police states. They'll all be perfectly fascist -- private ownership of both consumer goods and the means of production topped by state control of both. Fascism operates free of underlying principles or philosophy; it's totally the whim of the people in control, and they'll prove ever more ruthless."

Doug Casey

 

"Few Americans are disturbed that 1.25 million Iraqis and an unknown number of Afghans have died as a result of American invasions.
... For many Americans, war is like a sports contest in which they take vicarious pleasure and cheer on their side to victory."

Paul Craig Roberts

 

"Look at the United States. The two parties are mirror images of each other. To preserve the image of democracy, both are needed, both serve the same masters. But there are no leaders in the US who are standing up and speaking about the genocide of the Palestinians. The deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis are passed over in silence. There is no room for conscience in the US government, in either party, and the control of the press, not to mention other means such as blackmail and threats, ensure that those who might speak up, don't."

Henry See in his book "The Trick of the Psychopath's Trade"

 

"In a country in which much of human culture has been rendered into machines for the manufacture of money, psychopaths are the ideal leaders. They are very focused. They are outcome oriented. They are frequently charming, and usually very bright and able. They can lay off thousands of people, or deny people health care, or have them waterboarded, and it does not disturb their sleep."

David Schwartz

 

"Our society is moving in the direction of permitting, reinforcing, and in some instances actually valuing some of the traits listed in the Psychopathy Checklist - traits such a impulsivity, irresponsibility, lack of remorse."

Robert Hare

 

"U.S. military forces were directly responsible for about 10 to 15 million deaths during the Korean and Vietnam Wars and the two Iraq Wars.
... The United States was also responsible for 14 million deaths in Afghanistan, Angola, Democratic Republic of the Congo, East Timor, Guatemala, Indonesia, Pakistan and Sudan.
... The United States most likely has been responsible since WWII for the deaths of between 20 and 30 million people in wars and conflicts scattered over the world."

James A. Lucas

 

"Countries ruled by psychopaths become corrupt and brutish police states constantly at war with created and imaginary enemies. The population becomes paranoid, neurotic, and ultimately secondary psychopaths. In a psychopathic culture, everyone must adopt a ruthless attitude as a survival strategy."

Stefan H. Verstappen

 

"The prevalence of sociopathy in the United States seems to be increasing. The 1991 Epidemiologic Catchment Area study, sponsored by the National Institute of Mental Health, reported that in the fifteen years preceding the study, the prevalence of antisocial personality disorder had nearly doubled among the young in America."

Martha Stout

 

"Psychopathic behavior seems to be on the rise because of the very nature of American capitalistic society. The great hustlers, charmers, and self-promoters in the sales fields are perfect examples of where the psychopath can thrive. The entertainment industry, the sports industry, the corporate world in a capitalistic system, are all areas where psychopaths naturally rise to the top."

Laura Knight-Jadczyk

 

"The problem is that authoritarian followers are much more active than the rest of the country. They have the mentality of 'old-time religion' on a crusade, and they generously give money, time and effort to the cause. They proselytize; they lick stamps; they put pressure on loved ones; and they revel in being loyal to a cohesive group of like thinkers. And they are so submissive to their leaders that they will believe and do virtually anything they are told. They are not going to let up and they are not going to go away."

Robert Altemeyer

 

"Money is the glue of movement conservatism, which is largely financed by a handful of extremely wealthy individuals and a number of major corporations, all of whom stand to gain from increased inequality, an end to progressive taxation, and a rollback of the welfare state - in short, from a reversal of the New Deal. And turning the clock back on economic policies that limit inequality is, at its core, what movement conservatism is all about."

Paul Krugman

 

"In the world today where information is controlled by a small number of media outlets, and those media outlets have much in common with the pathological governments, greater numbers of people can be influenced and infected with pathological thinking... Madeleine Albright in 1996 was asked about the 500,000 deaths in Iraq, mostly of children, due to the Iraq embargo. She responded that she thought 'It was worth it', that is, those deaths were the necessary price to pay to bring down Saddam. That is unquestionably pathological logic, and yet how many Americans would have heard that response and thought nothing of it? Anyone who, on hearing that statement, was not outraged has been infected with pathological thinking, they have been ponerized. Their thinking has become distorted by the pathological infection."

Henry See in his book "The Trick of the Psychopath's Trade"

 

"Psychopaths derive their power from the complicity of the general population. Most people still get suckered in by the manipulation of psychopaths, and most people still admire them. The only answer to eliminating the power of the psychopath is to educate the public.
... The better informed you are, the better you are able to spot psychopaths, and then distancing yourself from them, cutting them off from your money, your attention and your devotion."

Stefan Verstappen

 

"American foreign-policy makers are exquisitely attuned to the rise of a government, or a movement that might take power, that will not lie down and happily become an American client state, that will not look upon the free market or the privatization of the world known as "globalization" as summum bonum [the highest good], that will not change its laws to favor foreign investment, that will not be unconcerned about the effects of foreign investment upon the welfare of its own people, that will not produce primarily for export, that will not easily tolerate the International Monetary Fund or the World Trade Organization inflicting a scorched-earth policy upon the country's social services or standard of living, that will not allow an American or NATO military installation upon its soil. Given the proper pretext, such bad examples have to be reduced to basket cases, or, where feasible, simply overthrown."

William Blum

 

"Stop talking so much about democracy and instead support dictatorships of the right if their policies are pro-American."

U.S. Treasury Secretary George Humphrey, 1954

 

"If the U.S. is to survive, long-standing American concepts of "fair play" must be reconsidered. We must develop effective espionage and counterespionage services. We must learn to subvert, sabotage and destroy our enemies by more clever, more sophisticated and more effective methods than those used against us. It may become necessary that the American people be acquainted with, understand and support this fundamentally repugnant philosophy."

Hoover Commission report of 1954

 

"There is a single theme behind all our work. We must reduce population levels. Either they do it our way, through nice clean methods or they will get the kind of mess that we have in El Salvador, or in Iran, or in Beirut. Once population is out of control it requires authoritarian government, even fascism, to reduce it... The quickest way to reduce population is through famine like in Africa. We go into a country and say, here is your goddamn development plan. Throw it out the window. Start looking at your population ...if you don't ...then you'll have an El Salvador or an Iran, or worse, a Cambodia.

U.S. Latin American Office of Population Affairs [OPA] case officer Thomas Ferguson

 

IS ZIONISM PSYCHOPATHIC ?

David Ben Gurion / Ariel Sharon / Benjamin Netanyahu

 

Gaza 2014

 

"Zionist acts of terror, carried out mainly by members of two major groups, the Irgun and Stern Gang, included the 1946 bombing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, which killed ninety-one people - forty-one Arabs, twenty-eight British, and seventeen Jews; the 1947 hanging of two British soldiers and booby trapping of their bodies; the 1948 bombing of the Arab-owned Semiramis Hotel in Jerusalem, which killed twenty-two Arabs, including women and children; the 1948 massacre of 254 Arab men, women, and children villagers of Deir Yassin; the massacre of scores of civilians at the village of Dawayima in 1948; and the 1948 assassination of UN Special Representative Count Folke Bernadotte of Sweden.
... Menachem Begin led the Irgun, and Yitzhak Shamir was one of the leaders of the Stern Gang. Both men later became prime ministers of Israel."

Paul Findley

 

"Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves"

Israeli prime Minister Menachem Begin in a speech to the Knesset [Israeli Parliament]

 

"A partial Jewish state is not the end, bur only the beginning. The establishment of such a Jewish state will serve as a means in our historical effort to redeem the country in its entirety.... We shall organize a modern defense force... and then I am certain that we will not be prevented from settling in other parts of the country, either by mutual agreement with our Arab neighbors or by some other means.... We will expel the Arabs and take their place... with the force at our disposal."

Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion, in a 1937 letter to his son

 

"A voluntary reconciliation with the Arabs is out of the question either now or in the future. If you wish to colonize a land in which people are already living, you must provide a garrison for the land, or find some rich man or benefactor who will provide a garrison on your behalf. Or else, give up your colonization, for without an armed force which will render physically impossible any attempt to destroy or prevent this colonization, colonization is impossible, not difficult, not dangerous, but impossible.
... Zionism is a colonization adventure and therefore it stands or falls by the question of armed force. It is important to speak Hebrew, but, unfortunately, it is even more important to be able to shoot - or else I am through with playing at colonizing."

Vladimir Jabotinsky, founder of Revisionist Zionism (precursor of Likud Party}

 

"We will establish ourselves in Palestine whether you like it or not...You can hasten our arrival or you can equally retard it. It is however better for you to help us so as to avoid our constructive powers being turned into a destructive power which will overthrow the world."

Chaim Weizmann, Published in "Judische Rundschau," No. 4, 1920

 

"Tell me, do the evil men of this world have a bad time? They hunt and catch whatever they feel like eating. They don't suffer from indigestion and are not punished by Heaven. I want Israel to join that club. Maybe the world will then at last begin to fear us instead of feeling sorry. Maybe they will start to tremble, to fear our madness instead of admiring our nobility. Let them tremble; let them call us a mad state. Let them understand that we are a savage country, dangerous to our surroundings, not normal, that we might go wild, that we might start World War Three just like that, or that we might one day go crazy and burn all the oil fields in the Middle East. Even if you'll prove to me that the present war is a dirty immoral war, I don't care. We shall start another war, kill and destroy more and more. And do you know why it is all worth it? Because it seems that this war has made us more unpopular among the civilized world. We'll hear no more of that nonsense about the unique Jewish morality. No more talk about a unique people being a light upon the nations. No more uniqueness and no more sweetness and light. Good riddance."

former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon

 

"The Arabs will have to go, but one needs an opportune moment for making it happen, such as a war."

Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion, in a 1937 letter to his son

 

"I favor partition of the country because when we become a strong power after the establishment of the state, we will abolish partition and spread throughout all of Palestine."

Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion, 1938

 

"I am for compulsory transfer; I do not see anything immoral in it."

Israeli Prime MInister David Ben-Gurion, June 1938

 

"We should prepare to go on the offensive. Our aim is to smash Lebanon, Trans-Jordan, and Syria. The weak point is Lebanon, for the Moslem regime is artificial and easy for us to undermine. We shall establish a Christian state there, and then we will smash the Arab Legion, eliminate Trans-Jordan; Syria will fall to us. We then bomb and move on and take Port Said, Alexandria and Sinai."

Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion, 1948

 

"We must do everything to ensure they the Palestinian refugees never do return."

Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion, in his diary, 18 July 1948

 

"Why should the Arabs make peace? If I were an Arab leader I would never make terms with Israel. That is natural. We have taken their country. Sure, God promised it to me, but what does it matter to them? Our God is not theirs. We come from Israel, it is true, but two thousand years ago, and what is it to them? There have been anti-Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, and Auschwitz but was that their fault? They only see one thing: we have come here and stolen their country."

Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion to Nahum Goldman, President of the World Zionist Organization, 1956

 

"Hundreds of thousands of [Palestinians], intimidated and terrorized, fled in panic, and still others were driven out by the Jewish army, which, under the leadership of [David] Ben-Gurion, planned and executed the expulsion in the wake of the UN Partition Plan."

Israeli historian Simha Flapan

 

"Everybody has to move, run and grab as many [Palestinian] hilltops as they can to enlarge the [Jewish] settlements because everything we take now will stay ours... Everything we don't grab will go to them."

Ariel Sharon, 1998

 

"Israel should have exploited the repression of the demonstrations in China, when world attention focused on that country, to carry out mass expulsions among the Arabs of the territories."

Benyamin Netanyahu, 1989

 

"Between ourselves it must be clear that there is no room for both peoples together in this country. We shall not achieve our goal if the Arabs are in this small country. There is no other way than to transfer the Arabs from here to neighboring countries - all of them. Not one village, not one tribe should be left."

Joseph Weitz, head of the Jewish Agency's Colonization Department in 1940

 

"Among the most disturbing political phenomena of our time is the emergence in the newly created State of Israel of the Freedom Party (Herut), a political party closely akin in its organization, method, political philosophy and social appeal to the Nazi and Fascist parties."

Albert Einstein, Hanna Arendt and other prominent Jewish Americans, writing in The New York Times, protesting the visit to America of Menachem Begin, December 1948

 

"It is the duty of Israel leaders to explain to public opinion, clearly and courageously, a certain number of facts that are forgotten with time. The first of these is that there is no Zionism, colonization or Jewish state without the eviction of the Arabs and the expropriation of their lands."

Ariel Sharon, 1998

 

"We, the Jewish people control America, and the Americans know it."

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to Shimon Peres, October 2001

 

"We shall try to spirit the penniless population [the Palestinians] across the border by procuring employment in the transit countries, while denying iany employment in our own country."

Theodor Herzl

 

"I have always said, I always say, I am proud of everything I have done in my past. I do not disown a single step .... I am proud of what I have done and I do not owe an accounting to anyone."

Yitzhak Shamir - leader of the Stern Gang terrorist group in Palestine, 1991

 

"We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq... [these events] swung American public opinion in our favor."

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, 2008

 

"It's very good [bombing of World Trade Center, NYC, 2001]... it will generate immediate sympathy ... [and] strengthen the bond between our two peoples."

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, 2011

 

"When we have settled the land, all the Arabs will be able to do about it will be scurry around like drugged roaches in a bottle."

Rafael Eitan, Israel's military chief of the staff during the 1982 invasion of Lebanon

 

"The purpose of Zionism is to help colonize the Middle East, subvert Islam, and control the oil fields. For this reason Israel continues to receive blank checks. This is why the founding of Israel took precedence over the welfare of the Jewish people.
People complain that Israel controls the U.S.. But, Israel is just an instrument of the central bankers who control both."

Henry Makow

 

"Political Zionism is an agency of Big Business. It is being used by Jewish and Christian financiers in the United States and Great Britain, to make Jews believe that Palestine will be ruled by a descendant of King David who will ultimately rule the world. What delusion! It will lead to war between Arabs and Jews and eventually to war between Muslims and non-Muslims. That will be the turning point of history."

Henry H. Klein, 1947

 

"Zionism was willing to sacrifice the whole of European Jewry for a Zionist State. Everything was done to create a state of Israel and that was only possible through a world war. Wall Street and Jewish large bankers aided the war effort on both sides."

Joseph Burg, The Toronto Star,1988

 

"Israel controls the United States Senate. Around 80 percent [of the Senate] are completely in support of Israel; anything Israel wants it gets. Jewish influence in the House of Representatives is even greater."

Senator William Fulbright

 

"The control the Jews have over the news media and the barrage which the Jews have built up on congressmen... I am very much concerned over the fact that the Jewish influence here is completely dominating the scene and making it almost impossible to get Congress to do anything they don't approve of. The Israeli Embassy is practically dictating to the Congress through influential Jewish people in the country."

Secretary of State John Foster Dulles

 

"By what means has America (and the entire West) been brought to the state that no public man aspires to office, or editor feels secure at his desk, until he has brought out his prayer-mat and prostrated himself to Zion? How have presidents and prime ministers been led to compete for the approval of this faction like bridesmaids for the bride's bouquet? Why do leading men suffer themselves to be paraded at hundred-dollar-a-plate banquets for Zion, or to be herded on to Zionist platforms to receive "plaques" for services rendered?"
The power of money and the prospect of votes have demonstrably been potent lures, but in my judgment by far the strongest weapon is this power to control published information; to lay stress on what a faction wants and to exclude from it all that the faction dislikes, and so to be able to give any selected person a "good" or a "bad" press.


Douglas Reed in his book "The Controversy of Zion" [published in the 1950s]

 

"There cannot be the slightest doubt that a state of mind very much like that of Israel now prevails among American Jews. There is a fanatical certainty abroad that there is only one truth and that Israel is the sole custodian of it. No distinction is made between the Jews of the world and Israel, and not even between the Israeli government and Israel. Israeli statesmen and their policies are assumed to be inviolate and above criticism. There is a frightening intolerance of opinions differing from those of the majority, a complete disregard of reason, and a yielding to the emotions of a stampeding herd."

William Zukerman, Jewish Newsletter, 1955

 

"Israel's goal in the Middle East has been to gin up as much conflict and chaos as possible, keeping its Islamic enemies divided, making it impossible for any credible challenge to arise among its Arab neighbors, and aiming the main blow at Tehran, while paying lip service to the awfulness of ISIS and al-Qaeda. Their quarrel isn't really with the Arabs, anyway, it's with the Persians, whom they fear and loathe, and whose destruction has been their number one objective since the days of Ariel Sharon."

Justin Raimondo, 2014

 

"A controversial bill that officially defines Israel as the "Nation-State of the Jewish People" was approved by the Israeli cabinet.
Finally Israel has acknowledged its true Jewish nature. Instead of pretending to be a 'Jewish Democracy" - a contradiction in terms, the Jewish State admits that it is a theocracy guided by Jewish racial supremacist ideology.
The bill, which is intended to become part of Israel's Basic Laws, recognises Israel's Jewish character, institutionalises Jewish law as an inspiration for legislation and delists Arabic as an official second language. As if until now Arabic had been equal to Hebrew.
According to some Israeli critics, the new Israeli bill would weaken the wording of Israel's declaration of independence, which states that the new state would "be based on the principles of liberty, justice and freedom expressed by the prophets of Israel [and] affirm complete social and political equality for all its citizens, regardless of religion, race or gender."
Israel has always been the Jewish State, it has never been a liberal place nor has it been committed to justice or equality. The deepest truth is that universal humanism and ethical culture is foreign to Judaic thinking that is tribal and legalistic."

Gilad Atzmon, 2014

 

PREPARE FOR A
PLUTOCRAT-CONTROLLED NEOLIBERAL ECONOMIC ORDER
AND GLOBAL AUTHORITARIANISM

Things are moving rapidly. Inequality in America is extreme. Authoritarianism is increasing. Before we realize it, America's democratic experiment will have ended in failure, and possibly chaos. Societies with extreme inequality have always come to ignoble ends. The question is whether America will end with a whimper, or with a bang.

 

American hubris has resulted in global economic chaos and strategic confrontation. We are no longer the only superpower. Both Russia and China, once great empires, want a second chance at global prosperity and respect. As the U.S. is forced by circumstances to abandon its role as the sole global policeman and economic powerhouse, others are ready to take its place. But, dying empires are known to flail about and fight viciously to preserve their former hegemony. And, it looks like the United States will not go quietly into the night.

 

U. S. power was at its peak following World War II. America ruled the globe economically and militarily. It's influence was ubiquitous and its soft power seemingly unlimited. But, arrogance and greed have turned the United States into a pariah. We are feared for our power, but no longer respected for our institutions. Inequality, injustice, corruption, and our projection of violence, have turned much of the world against us.

 

Throughout the 20th century and into the 21st century, the United States rhetorically lauded the benefits of democracy, while undermining democratically-elected governments everywhere. U.S.-sponsored coups and "color revolutions" dressed-up as spontaneous popular uprisings, have shown that democratic governments are not well-suited to withstand 21st century 'realpolitik'.

 

Developing countries, which once looked to the United States as a model for political and economic development, are re-evaluating whether democracy is their best political choice. As the economic and political might of Russia and China grow, so does their influence.

 

And, as the United States repeatedly demonstrates how easily it can manipulate elections and exploit popular unrest, while hypocritically preaching about democracy, developing countries may conclude that authoritarian government may be their best survival option.


The result: democracy will be left in the dustbin of history.

 

On the economic front, a new feudalism is emerging. As work is made contingent and part-time, employee benefits are cut, operations are moved offshore, unemployment increases, well-paying manufacturing jobs become minimum-wage service jobs, family debt grows, inequality increases and opportunities disappear, the United States is beginning to look more like a mal-developed country in the global South, than an economic giant, while American workers, once the envy of the world, struggle to compete with workers in the third world.

 

21st century neoliberal capitalism is producing chaos, globally. Unabashed greed, absence of effective regulation of business activity, and the growth of global casino capitalism have caused untold damage. Austerity, privatization, extreme financial risk-taking, endemic fraud and market manipulation have combined to produce a perfect economic storm. Regulators have stopped regulating, plutocrats continue to accumulate wealth, and politicians grab what they can. Nobody trusts anybody, banks won't lend, unemployment is high and rising, personal debt is staggering, and hardship and immiseration are growing, while the .01% spends with abandon and economic inequality has achieved heights not seen since the Gilded Age of the late 19th century.

 

Business and political elites have shown a willingness to undermine and severely damage their own country's economy, in order to weaken a populist government that refuses to support neoliberal economic policies that enrich the wealthy. As the economy is covertly sabotaged, the population, unaware that the source of their misery is the business elite, blame the populist leaders, and remove them from office. The result is that neoliberal governments replace populist governments, anti-worker policies are adopted and accelerated, the elites grow richer, and the working class suffers even more.

 

In Asia, China's growing economic power is transforming global finance. The Chinese yuan may soon take its place as an international reserve currency, joining the dollar - or even replacing it. The global impact of the dollar's reserve currency displacement would be enormous.

 

Banks have started restricting cash withdrawals. It is now difficult to take out more than a few thousand dollars in cash from some banks. Soon it may be nearly impossible to withdraw cash from bank accounts.

 

Some countries are considering becoming cashless societies, where money will no longer be accepted and all monetary transactions will be digital. The result will be the end of financial privacy. Governments will then have total control over the economic lives of their citizens.

 

In the new "normal" financial environment, banks will prosper by taxing the deposits of savers (rather than paying interest on deposits) or by taking some of the savings of their customers (bail-ins) as needed to enhance their balance sheets.

 

As the economic noose tightens, political turmoil, popular unrest and even global conflict may result.

 

Kleptocratic elites in concert with corrupt political and business leaders, will not be the solution to the probem - they will be the problem.

 

Every person will have to fend for himself or herself, and for their loved ones, in a more chaotic, less fair, less democratic, more authoritarian world.

 

The time to prepare is now.

 

PROTOCOLS OF THE LEARNED ELDERS OF ZION
A HOAX OR A BLUEPRINT FOR TOTALITARIAN WORLD CONTROL BY PSYCHOPATHS?

 

"The presumption is strong that the Protocols were issued, or reissued, at the First Zionist Congress held at Basle (Switzerland) in 1897 under the presidency of the Father of Modern Zionism, the late Theodore Herzl."

Victor E. Marsden
who translated into English "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion" which Sergyei Nilus published in Russia in 1905

 

"About a year ago a representative of the [U.S.] Department of Justice submitted to me a copy of the manuscript of "The Jewish Peril" by Professor [Sergei] Nilus, and asked for my opinion of the work. He said that the manuscript was a translation of a Russian book published in 1905 which was later suppressed. The manuscript was supposed to contain 'protocols' of the Wise Men of Zion and was supposed to have been read by Dr. Herzl at a secret conference of the Zionist Congress at Basle. He expressed the opinion that the work was probably that of Dr. Theodor Herzl... He said that some American Senators who had seen the manuscript were amazed to find that so many years ago a scheme had been elaborated by the Jews which is now being carried out, and that Bolshevism had been planned years ago by Jews who sought to destroy the world."

Herman Bernstein, "American Hebrew", June 25, 1920

 

"Whosoever was the mind that conceived [the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion] possessed a knowledge of human nature, of history and of statecraft which is dazzling in its brilliant completeness, and terrible in the objects to which it turns its powers. Neither a madman nor an intentional criminal, but more likely a super-mind mastered by devotion to a people and a faith could be the author, if indeed one mind alone conceived them. It is too terribly real for fiction, too well sustained for speculation, too deep in its knowledge of the secret springs of life for forgery."

Dearborn Independent, July 10, 1920

 

"Only force conquers in political affairs, especially if it be concealed in the talents essential to statesmen. Violence must be the principle, and cunning and make-believe the rule for governments... Therefore we must not stop at bribery, deceit and treachery when they should serve towards the attainment of our end. In politics one must know how to seize the property of others without hesitation if by it we secure submission and sovereignty."

Protocol 1 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"We have set up the aristocracy of our educated class headed by the aristocracy of money. The qualifications for this aristocracy we have established in wealth."

Protocol 1 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"It is essential to teach in national schools ... the division of men into classes and conditions... the peoples will voluntarily submit to authority and accept such position as is appointed them in the State."

Protocol 3 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"We shall create by all the secret subterranean methods open to us and with the aid of gold, which is all in our hands, a universal economic crisis whereby we shall throw upon the streets whole mobs of workers simultaneously in all the countries of Europe. These mobs will rush delightedly to shed the blood of those whom, in the simplicity of their ignorance, they have envied from their cradles, and whose property they will then be able to loot."

Protocol 3 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"We shall create an intensified centralisation of government in order to grip in our hands all the forces of the community. We shall regulate mechanically all the actions of the political life of our subjects by new laws ... and our kingdom will be distinguished by a despotism of such magnificent proportions as to be at any moment and in every place in a position to wipe out any goyim who oppose us by deed or word."

Protocol 5 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"We have set one against another ... religious and race hatreds... We are too strong - there is no evading our power. The nations cannot come to even an inconsiderable private agreement without our secretly having a hand in it."

Protocol 5 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"[The] engine of the machinery of States is - Gold. The science of political economy invented by our learned elders has for long past been giving royal prestige to capital... Capital, if it is to co-operate untrammelled, must be free to establish a monopoly of industry and trade."

Protocol 5 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"In order to put public opinion into our hands we must bring it into a state of bewilderment, by giving expression, from all sides, to so many contradictory opinions and for such a length of time as will suffice to make the goyim lose their heads in the labyrinth and come to see that the best thing is to have no opinion of any kind in matters political."

Protocol 5 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"We shall so wear down the goyim, that they will be compelled to offer us international power, of a nature that, by its position, will enable us, without any violence, gradually to absorb all the state forces of the world and to form a Super-Government."

Protocol 5 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"We shall soon begin to establish huge monopolies, reservoirs of colossal riches, upon which, even large fortunes of the goyim will depend."

Protocol 6 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"What we want is that industry should drain off from the land both labour and capital and, by means of speculation, transfer into our hands all the money of the world."

Protocol 6 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"The intensification of armaments, the increase of police forces - are all essential ... that there should be, in all the States of the world; besides ourselves, only the masses of the proletariat; a few millionaires devoted to our interests; police and soldiers."

Protocol 7 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"We must create ferments; discords and hostility. Therein we gain a double advantage. In the first place we keep in check all countries, for they will know that we have the power, whenever we like, to create disorders or to restore order. All these countries are accustomed to see in us an indispensable force of coercion. In the second place, by our intrigues we shall tangle up all the threads which we have stretched into the cabinets of all States; by means of the political; by economic treaties, or loan obligations."

Protocol 7 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"We must be in a position to respond to every act of opposition; by war with the neighbours of that country which dares to oppose us: but if these neighbours should also venture to stand collectively together against us, then we must offer resistance by a universal war."

Protocol 7 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"The Press which, with few exceptions that may be disregarded, is already, entirely in our hands."

Protocol 7 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"We shall surround our government with a whole world of economists. That is the reason why economic sciences form the principal subject of the teaching given to the Jews. Around us again will be a whole constellation of bankers; industrialists; capitalists and - the main thing - millionaires; because in substance, everything will be settled by the question of figures."

Protocol 8 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"We shall put [responsible posts] in the hands of persons whose past and reputation are such that between them and the people lies an abyss, persons who, in case of disobedience to our instructions, must face criminal charges or disappear - this in order to make them defend our interests to their last gasp."

Protocol 8 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"Our Super-Government subsists in extra-legal conditions, which are described, in the accepted terminology, by the energetic and forcible word - Dictatorship.
... We rule by force of will ... the weapons in our hands are limitless ambitions; burning greediness; merciless vengeance; hatreds and malice."

Protocol 9 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"Division into fractional parties has given them into our hands, for, in order to carry on a contested struggle one must have money, and the money is all in our hands."

Protocol 9 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"We have got our hands into the administration of the law; into the conduct of elections; into the press; into liberty of the person; but principally into education and training as being the cornerstones of a free existence."

Protocol 9 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"We shall arrange elections in favour of such presidents as have in their past some dark, undiscovered stain ... then they will be trustworthy agents for the accomplishment of our plans, out of fear of revelations and from the natural desire of everyone who has attained power, namely, the retention of the privileges, advantages and honour connected with the office of president.
... We shall invest the president with the right of declaring a state of war.
... The president will, at our discretion, interpret the sense of such of the existing laws as admit of various interpretation; he will further annul them when we indicate to him the necessity to do so."

Protocol 10 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"We shall obtain the power of destroying, little by little, step by step, all ... to prepare for the transition to an imperceptible abolition of every kind of constitution, and then the time is come to turn every form of government into our despotism.
The recognition of our despot may also come before the destruction of the constitution; the moment for this recognition will come when the peoples, utterly wearied by the irregularities and incompetence - a matter which we shall arrange for - of their rulers, will clamour."

Protocol 10 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"It is indispensable, to trouble, in all countries, the people's relations with their governments, so as to utterly exhaust humanity with dissension; hatred; struggle; envy and even by the use of torture; by starvation; by the inoculation of disease; by want, so that the goyim see no other course open to them than to take refuge in our complete sovereignty in money and in all else.
But if we give the nations of the world a breathing-space the moment we long for is hardly likely ever to arrive."

Protocol 10 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"The freedom of the Press; the right of association; freedom of conscience; the voting principle; and many anothers must disappear for ever from the memory of man, or undergo a radical alteration the day after the promulgation of the new constitution. It is only at the moment that we shall be able at once to announce all our orders.
... What we want is that from the first moment of its promulgation, while the peoples of the world are still stunned by the accomplished fact of the revolution, still in a condition of terror and uncertainty, they should recognise once and for all that we are so strong, so inexpugnable, so super-abundantly filled with power, that in no case shall we take any account of them, and so far from paying any attention to their opinions or wishes, we are ready and able to crush with irresistible power all expression or manifestation thereof at every moment and in every place, that we have seized at once everything we wanted and shall in no case divide our power with them ... Then in fear and trembling they will close their eyes to everything, and be content to await what will be the end of it all.
... We shall keep promising them [the people] to give back all the liberties we have taken away as soon as we have quelled the enemies of peace and tamed all parties. It is not worth to say anything about how long a time they will be kept waiting for this return of their liberties."

Protocol 11 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"We shall saddle and bridle [the press] with a tight curb.
... Among those making attacks upon us will also be organs established by us, but they will attack exclusively points that we have pre-determined to alter.
Not a single announcement will reach the public without our control. Even now this is already being attained by us inasmuch as all news items are received by a few agencies, in whose offices they are focused from all parts of the world. These agencies will then be already entirely ours and will give publicity only to what we dictate to them.
... Literature and journalism are two of the most important educative forces, and therefore our government will become proprietor of the majority of the journals. This will neutralise the injurious influence of the privately-owned press and will put us in possession of a tremendous influence upon the public mind."

Protocol 12 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"All journals published by us will be of the most opposite, in appearance, tendencies and opinions, thereby creating confidence in us and bringing over to us quite unsuspicious opponents, who will thus fall into our trap and be rendered harmless.
... All our newspapers will be of all possible complexions - aristocratic, republican, revolutionary, even anarchical - for so long, of course, as the constitution exists... they will have a hundred hands, and every one of them will have a finger on any one of the public opinions as required. When a pulse quickens these hands will lead opinion in the direction of our aims, for an excited patient loses all power of judgement and easily yields to suggestion. Those fools who will think they are repeating the opinion of a newspaper of their own camp will be repeating our opinion or any opinion that seems desirable for us. In the vain belief that they are following the organ of their party they will, in fact, follow the flag which we hang out for them.
... We shall be in a position, as from time to time may be required, to excite or to tranquillise the public mind on political questions, to persuade or to confuse, printing now truth, now lies, facts or their contradictions, according as they may be well or ill received."

Protocol 12 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"In order that the masses themselves may not guess what they are about, we further distract them with amusements; games; pastimes; passions; people's palaces. Soon we shall begin through the press to propose competitions in art; in sport of all kinds: these interests will finally distract their minds from questions in which we should find ourselves compelled to oppose them. Growing more and more dis-accustomed to reflect and form any opinions of their own, people will begin to talk in the same tone as we, because we alone shall be offering them new directions for thought."

Protocol 13 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"How far-seeing were our learned elders in ancient times, when they said, that to attain a serious end, it behoves not to stop at any means or to count the victims sacrificed for the sake of that end... We have not counted the victims of the seed of the goy cattle, though we have sacrificed many of our own, but for that we have now already given them such a position on the Earth as they could not even have dreamed of. The comparatively small numbers of the victims, from the number of ours, have preserved our nationality from destruction."

Protocol 15 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"When comes the time of our overt rule, the time to manifest its blessing, we shall remake all legislatures, all our laws will be brief, plain, stable, without any kind of interpretations, so that anyone will be in a position to know them perfectly. The main feature which will run right through them is submission to orders."

Protocol 15 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"All the money in the world will be concentrated in our hands."

Protocol 15 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"Our government will have the appearance of a patriarchal paternal guardianship on the part of the ruler. Our own nation and our subjects will discern in his person a father caring for their every need... They will then be so thoroughly imbued with the thought that it is impossible for them to dispense with this wardship and guidance; if they wish to live in peace and quiet; that they will acknowledge the autocracy of our ruler.
... They will be rejoiced that we have regulated everything in their lives, as is done by wise parents who desire to train children in the cause of duty and submission.
When the King of Israel sets upon his sacred head the crown offered him by Europe he will become patriarch of the world."

Protocol 15 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"We shall emasculate ... the universities, by re-educating them in a new direction. Their officials and professors will be prepared for their business by detailed secret programmes of action from which they will not with immunity diverge, not by one iota. They will be appointed with especial precaution, and will be so placed as to be wholly dependent on the Government.
... When we are in power we shall remove every kind of disturbing subject from the course of education and shall make, out of the youth, obedient children of authority.
... We shall erase from the memory of men all facts of previous centuries which are undesirable to us.
We shall abolish every kind of freedom of instruction."

Protocol 16 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"We shall arrange a simulation of disorders, or some manifestation of discontents finding expression through the co-operation of good speakers. Round these speakers will assemble all who are sympathetic to his utterances. This will give us the pretext for domiciliary perquisitions (diligent searches) and surveillance on the part of our servants from among the number of the goyim police."

Protocol 18 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"Economic crises have been produced by us for the goyim by no other means than the withdrawal of money from circulation."

Protocol 20 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"The gold standard has been the ruin of the States which adopted it, for it has not been able to satisfy the demands for money, the more so that we have removed gold from circulation as possible."

Protocol 20 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"Loans hang like a sword of Damocles over the heads of rulers, who, instead of taking from their subjects by a temporary tax, come begging with outstretched palm of our bankers. Foreign loans are leeches which there is no possibility of removing from the body of the State, until they fall off of themselves, or the State flings them off."

Protocol 20 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"The goyim ... have been borrowing from us, with payment of interest, without ever thinking that all the same these very moneys, plus an addition for payment of interest, must be got by them from their own State pockets in order to settle up with us. What could have been simpler than to take the money they wanted from their own people?
But it is a proof of the genius of our chosen mind that we have contrived to present the matter of loans to them in such a light that they have even seen in them an advantage for themselves."

Protocol 20 - Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

 

"Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves"

Israeli prime Minister Menachem Begin in a speech to the Knesset [Israeli Parliament]

 

"We Jews, we are the destroyers and will remain the destroyers. Nothing you can do will meet our demands and needs. We will forever destroy because we want a world of our own."

Maurice Samuels in his book "You Gentiles"
