U.S. officials would like to blame al-Qaeda for Friday’s suicide bombing at the U.S. embassy in Ankara, Turkey, but the country’s prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has placed blame squarely on the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front, or DHKP/C.
“Turkish media identified the bomber as Ecevit Şanli, allegedly a 30-year-old member of the outlawed Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party/Front (DHKP/C),” the Washington Post reported after Erdogan’s comment.
DHKP/C is described as Marxist-Leninist and until recently considered a relic of a bygone era. The group is officially described as a splinter group of a splinter group going back to the Revolutionary Youth Federation, a communist organization that emerged out of Turkey’s Federation of Idea Clubs. It is said to oppose the Turkish establishment, NATO and the U.S. and stands accused of killing retired generals, a former justice minister and a businessman.
In January, the Turkish government carried a number of sensationalistic arrests of people allegedly connected to the outlawed group officially listed as a terrorist group by Turkey, Europe and the United States.
Despite news coverage of the arrests and today’s suicide bombing at the embassy killing a security guard and the suspected bomber, few news organizations and journalists have bothered to report the fact there is plenty of evidence indicating the DHKP/C is a Gladio-like “strategy of tension” black op.
Like the CIA’s Gladio in Italy, Turkey’s clandestine and neo-fascist Ergenekon organization engaged in widespread terrorism subsequently blamed on leftist groups. Maureen Freely writes that following a military coup in Turkey, the “deep state” – described as a group of influential fascist coalitions within Turkey’s intelligence services and organized crime syndicates – funded and armed left and rightwing paramilitary groups that fought pitched battles in the streets and destabilized the country’s fragile political system.
Like its Italian counterpart, Ergenekon enjoyed the support of the CIA and the Pentagon, according to sources inside the Turkish military.
Bülent Ecevit, the four-time Prime Minister of Turkey, provided details on the Turkish version of Gladio and its strategy of tension. He said its operations were responsible for killing 38 people and injuring hundreds during the May 1, 1977, Taksim Square massacre in Istanbul. ….
The Obama administration’s Department of Agriculture has released nutrition standards for “competitive” foods and has outlawed snacks considered unhealthy by the nanny state federal government.
“Regular soda is out, though high-schoolers may have access to diet versions,” The Hill reports.
That’s right – the government is recommending our kids drink soda laden with the deadly neurotoxin aspartame. …
Aspartame is so dangerous and detrimental to health, even the FDA failed to approve it – for two decades running.
Despite this, more than 6,000 products, consumed by over 100 million people worldwide, contain aspartame, including: soft drinks, chewable vitamins, sugar-free cough drops, sweeteners, yogurt and a lot of other food products.
Aspartame is responsible for migraine headaches, changes in vision, nausea and vomiting, abdominal and joint pains, change in heart, depression, memory loss, seizure and even brain cancer.
“More than these complaints to the FDA, there are also around 10,000 documented reports of aspartame side effects and over 900 published studies on the health hazards,” notes Dr. Joseph Mercola. …
I witnessed a math professor who drank 3-6 cans of diet soda per day gradually lose his mental capacity over several years. He was middle aged when he started drinking it. No doubt if he’d been a child he never would have become a professor of anything. And the irony is, it makes you eat more. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robbie-gennet/donald-rumsfeld-and-the-s_b_805581.html
… In the economic arena, one might say that the collapse of Lehman Bros. was the “linchpin” that triggered the landslide in the derivatives market which is still going on to this day. However, the derivatives market bubble was a carefully constructed house of cards, deliberately created with the help of multiple agencies and institutions. The private Federal Reserve had to artificially lower interest rates and inject trillions upon trillions into the housing market, the international banks had to invest those trillions into mortgages that they KNEW were toxic and likely never to be repaid. The Federal Government had to allow those mortgages to then be chopped up into derivatives and resold on the open market. The ratings agencies had to examine those derivatives and obviously defunct mortgages and then stamp them AAA. The SEC had to ignore the massive fraud being done in broad daylight while sweeping thousands of formal complaints and whistle blowers under the rug.
This was not some “random” event caused by uncontrolled “complexity”. This was engineered complexity with a devious purpose. The creation of the derivatives collapse was done with foreknowledge, at least by some. Goldman Sachs was caught red handed betting against their OWN derivatives instruments! Meaning they knew exactly what was about to happen in the market they helped build! This is called Conspiracy…
One might attribute Casti’s idea to a sincere belief in chaos, and a lack of insight into the nature of globalism as a brand of religion. However, in his first and as far as I can tell only interview with Coast To Coast Radio, Casti promotes catastrophic “X-Events” as a “good thing” for humanity, right in line with the Rand Corporation ideology. Casti, being a futurist and elitist, sees the ideas of the past as obsolete when confronted with the technological advancements of the modern world, and so, describes X-event moments as a kind of evolutionary “kickstart”, knocking us out of our old and barbaric philosophies of living and forcing us, through trial by fire, to adapt to a more streamlined culture. …
The author makes an interesting point, that the culture is full of convenient myths that individuals use to delegate their moral judgement to the state, and that complexity theory applied to social organization is one of them. But conspiracies and spontaneous self organization can occur simultaneously, in fact the concentrations of power that lead to conspiracies occur because of system-wide organization outside the control of any coordinated subgroup of people. And as the system becomes more streamlined and mechanical in its processes (particularly in its wholesale and systematic abuse of children), its participants become more alienated and specialized in their workaholism, becoming less capable of forming the empathic and temporal perspectives that enable moral judgement. This is no more in evidence than in the elitists’ own psychopathy. They are prisoners of the system that they purport to control, because their soul IS the system. They are locked in a race with their fellow elitists to the top of a collapsing pyramid, their actions as predetermined as any cog in a machine, because psychopathy is slavery to the skinner box of each agent’s ego-based stimulus-response. The system’s self-organization gives rise to the universal psychopath that facilitates the network processes that result in the system itself. Yet it’s also true that the coming collapse was/is being deliberately engineered by these human cogs which are acting out their programming. RAND itself is both a cause and a consequence of the problem. This is emblematic of complex systems: cause and effect become one and the same. The irony is that the “controllers” will be among the casualties of the X-event that they help facilitate.
In any case, it’s clear that the propaganda foundation for the abandonment of the constitution is being laid so that the monopolists’ NWO will be seen as an alternative to the chaos which they are preparing for us.
On January 20, 2009, addressing a small gathering of political activists in Arlington, Virginia, I pointed out that Obama’s first inaugural was vastly inferior to the speech given by Franklin D. Roosevelt upon assuming the presidency in the midst of the previous world economic depression. Many are familiar with Roosevelt’s famous observation that “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” but his 1933 speech went much further. In the depths of the Depression, Roosevelt did not hesitate to indict Wall Street bankers and financiers as those responsible for the tragic economic collapse of the country:
“… the rulers of the exchange of mankind’s goods have failed, through their own stubbornness and their own incompetence, have admitted their failure, and abdicated. Practices of the unscrupulous money changers stand indicted in the court of public opinion, rejected by the hearts and minds of men. True they have tried, but their efforts have been cast in the pattern of an outworn tradition. Faced by failure of credit they have proposed only the lending of more money. Stripped of the lure of profit by which to induce our people to follow their false leadership, they have resorted to exhortations, pleading tearfully for restored confidence. They know only the rules of a generation of self-seekers. They have no vision, and when there is no vision the people perish. The money changers have fled from their high seats in the temple of our civilization. We may now restore that temple to the ancient truths. The measure of the restoration lies in the extent to which we apply social values more noble than mere monetary profit.”
This was a devastating indictment of the crimes of Wall Street high finance. Speaking under similar circumstances in 2009, Obama graphically illustrated his own tragic moral and intellectual inferiority to his famous predecessor.
“That we are in the midst of crisis is now well understood. Our nation is at war, against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred. Our economy is badly weakened, a consequence of greed and irresponsibility on the part of some, but also our collective failure to make hard choices and prepare the nation for a new age. Homes have been lost; jobs shed; businesses shuttered. Our health care is too costly; our schools fail too many; and each day brings further evidence that the ways we use energy strengthen our adversaries and threaten our planet.”
So who was responsible? Perhaps, a few greedy and irresponsible people in Wall Street, but the larger failure seems to belong to the American people. This is known as blaming the victim. “Our collective failure” in Obamaspeak means a failure to mercilessly cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment insurance, food stamps, and other meager social safety net programs – the obsession of Peter Peterson of the now-extinct Lehman Brothers.
These expenditures played absolutely no role whatsoever in the world derivatives and banking panic of 2007-2008, which was caused by an orgy of speculation in derivatives known as credit default swaps, collateralized debt obligations, and structured investment vehicles – the latter a specialty of Citibanker Jack Lew, whom Obama has just tapped to be Secretary of the Treasury. Here Obama was preparing his relentless campaign to cut the social safety net to ribbons under the pretext of reducing deficits and debt. …
“Our nation is at war, against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred.” It’s not hard to see who he’s talking about here: domestic dissidents of all political persuasions who are outside the propaganda matrix of “hope and change.” Currently public enemy number 1 is the so-called “right wing”, people who support the constitution (all of the constitution) who used to be called liberals years ago. Eventually it will focus on the so-called “left wing” who haven’t lost sight of the goal of bringing the troops home and getting wall street out of government. Each subgroup will be larger than the one targetted before. And beneath it all is the ongoing undeclared war on the family, the nucleus of human community and the substrate of empathy and camaraderie on which a national identity is based.
Just ask yourself, what kind of government would allow, much less promote the exportation of its own industrial infrastructure abroad? A colonial government. A government which is subversive to the ideals it purports to uphold. And it has nothing to do with democrats vs republicans. The takeover is comprehensive and no more in evidence than in the bipartisan consensus which continues to wage the so-called war on drugs while agents of the state and wall street continue to bring the most toxic and life-destroying drugs in on a wholesale basis. Even without the repeated exposure and whistleblowing, it’s clear that the law enforcement apparatus of the federal government must be controlled by wall-street drug cartels. Who else can bypass customs? Who else can launder the proceeds, which amount to hundreds of billions per year. If the war on drugs was serious, all they’d have to do is shut down the banks which launder the money (citibank, wells fargo and wachovia, to name a few). And look at what the WOD has done to our cities and communities. Bin Laden or Hitler would have been proud of what our own government has accomplished: a comprehensive program of internal degradation and external militarism. Not surprising given that both of them were creations of the wall-street/intelligence nexus. Truely a picture of a puppet regime.
This extremely powerful 89 minute film presents comprehensive documentation from United States Government archives of a massive cover-up, including military and civilian experimentation, dating back over 60 years. As ailing Gulf War Heroes from all 27 coalition countries slowly die of “unknown causes,” they wait for answers from their respective governments, but no satisfying or even credible answers have come forth from the military establishment. Records that span over a decade point to negligence and even culpability on the part of the U.S. Department of Defense and their “disposable army” mentality. From the first Gulf War the VA has determined that 250,000 troops are now permanently disabled, 15,000 troops are dead and over 425,000 troops are ill and slowly dying from what the Department of Defense still calls a “mystery disease.” How many more will have to die before action is taken?
