Global Flash Points
The US military/industrial complex has long since been completely out of control. Now, as the biosphere collapse accelerates exponentially, the power structure is more desperate than ever before. The totality and immediacy of what we collectively face cannot be overstated, so few yet grasp the gravity of what is unfolding. The current denial of the US population MUST be broken down. Our brothers and sisters in the US military (who are at this point acting as paid mercenaries for those in power), MUST be woken up to the insanity that they are helping to fuel. The effort to reach a critical mass of broader awareness with the population and the US military is a burden we must all bear. In the article below former Reagan administration official Dr. Paul Craig Roberts examines the long road of US government actions and tyranny that has played a huge part in leading up to this dark hour.
Somnolent Europe, Russia, And China
Can the world wake up?

On September 19, 2000, going on 16 years ago, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard of the London Telegraphreported:
“Declassified American government documents show that the US intelligence community ran a campaign in the Fifties and Sixties to build momentum for a united Europe. It funded and directed the European federalist movement.
“The documents confirm suspicions voiced at the time that America was working aggressively behind the scenes to push Britain into a European state. One memorandum, dated July 26, 1950, gives instructions for a campaign to promote a fully fledged European parliament. It is signed by Gen. William J. Donovan, head of the American wartime Office of Strategic Services, precursor of the CIA.”
As I have previously written, Washington believes that it is easier to control one government,
the EU, than to control many separate European governments. As Washington has a long term investment in orchestrating the European Union, Washington is totally opposed to any country exiting the arrangement. That is why President Obama recently went to London to tell his lapdog, the British Prime Minister, that there could be no British exit.
Like other European nations, the British people were never allowed to vote on whether they were in favor of their country ceasing to exist and them becoming Europeans. British history would become the history of a bygone people like the Romans and Babylonians.
The oppressive nature of unaccountable EU laws and regulations and the EU requirement to accept massive numbers of third world immigrants have created a popular demand for a British vote on whether to remain a sovereign country or to dissolve and submit to Brussels and its dictatorial edicts. The vote is scheduled for June 23.
Washington’s position is that the British people must not be permitted to decide against the EU, because such a decision is not in Washington’s interest.
The prime minister’s job is to scare the British people with alleged dire consequences of “going it alone.” The claim is that “little England” cannot stand alone. The British people are being told that isolation will spell their end, and their country will become a backwater bypassed by progress. Everything great will happen elsewhere, and they will be left out.
If the fear campaign does not succeed and the British vote to exit the EU, the open question is
whether Washington will permit the British government to accept the democratic outcome.
Alternatively, the British government will deceive the British people, as it routinely does, and declare that Britain has negotiated concessions from Brussels that dispose of the problems that concern the British people.
Washington’s position shows that Washington is a firm believer that only Washington’s interests are important. If other peoples wish to retain national sovereignty, they are simply being selfish. Moreover, they are out of compliance with Washington, which means they can be declared a “threat to American national security.” The British people are not to be permitted to make decisions that do not comply with Washington’s interest. My prediction is that the British people will either be deceived or overridden.
It is Washington’s self-centeredness, the self-absorption, the extraordinary hubris and arrogance, that explains the orchestrated “Russian threat.” Russia has not presented herself to the West as a military threat. Yet, Washington is confronting Russia with a US/NATO naval buildup in the Black Sea, a naval, troop and tank buildup in the Baltics and Poland, missile bases on Russia’s borders, and plans to incorporate the former Russian provinces of Georgia and Ukraine in US defense pacts against Russia.
When Washington, its generals and European vassals declare Russia to be a threat, they mean that Russia has an independent foreign policy and acts in her own interest rather than in Washington’s interest. Russia is a threat, because Russia demonstrated the capability of blocking Washington’s intended invasion of Syria and bombing of Iran. Russia blunted one purpose of Washington’s coup in the Ukraine by peacefully and democratically reuniting with Crimera, the site of Russia’s Black Sea naval base and a Russian province for several centuries.
Perhaps you have wondered how it was possible for small countries such as Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yeman, and Venezuela to be threats to the US superpower. On its face Washington’s claim is absurd. Do US presidents, Pentagon officials, national security advisors, and chairmen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff really regard countries of so little capability as military threats to the United States and NATO countries?
No, they do not. The countries were declared threats, because they have, or had prior to their destruction, independent foreign and economic policies. Their policy independence means that they do not or did not accept US hegemony. They were attacked in order to bring them under US hegemony.
In Washington’s view, any country with an independent policy is outside Washington’s umbrella and, therefore, is a threat.
Venezuela became, in the words of US President Obama, an “unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States,” necessitating a “national emergency” to contain the “Venezuelan threat” when the Venezuelan government put the interests of the Venezuelan people above those of American corporations.
Russia became a threat when the Russian government demonstrated the ability to block Washington’s intended military attacks on Syria and Iran and when Washington’s coup in the Ukraine failed to deliver to Washington the Russian Black Sea naval base.
Clearly Venezuela cannot possibly pose a military threat to the US, so Venezuela cannot possibly pose an “unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security of the US.” Venezuela is a “threat” because the Venezuelan government does not comply with Washington’s orders.
It is absolutely certain that Russia has made no threats whatsoever against the Baltics, Poland, Romania, Europe, or the United States. It is absolutely certain that Russia has not invaded the Ukraine. How do we know? If Russia had invaded Ukraine, the Ukraine would no longer be there. It would again be a Russian province where until about 20 years ago Ukraine resided for centuries, for longer than the US has existed. Indeed, the Ukraine belongs in Russia more than Hawaii and the deracinated and conquered southern states belong in the US.
Yet, these fantastic lies from the highest ranks of the US government, from NATO, from Washington’s British lackeys, from the bought-and-paid-for Western media, and from the bought-and-paid-for EU are repeated endlessly as if they are God’s revealed truth.
Syria still exists because it is under Russian protection. That is the only reason Syria still exists, and it is also another reason that Washington wants Russia out of the way.
Do Russia and China realize their extreme danger? I don’t think even Iran realizes its ongoing danger despite its close call.
If Russia and China realize their danger, would the Russian government permit one-fifth of its media to be foreign owned? Does Russia understand that “foreign owned” means CIA owned? If not, why not? If so, why does the Russian government permit its own destabilization at the hands of Washington’s intelligence service acting through foreign owned media?
China is even more careless. There are 7,000 US-funded NGOs (non-governmental organizations) operating in China. Only last month did the Chinese government finally move, very belatedly, to put some restrictions on these foreign agents who are working to destabilize China. The members of these treasonous organizations have not been arrested. They have merely been put under police watch, an almost useless restriction as Washington can provide endless money with which to bribe the Chinese police.
Why do Russia and China think that their police are less susceptible to bribes than Mexico’s or American police? Despite the multi-decade “war on drugs,” the drug flow from Mexico to the US is unimpeded. Indeed, the police forces of both countries have a huge interest in the “war on drugs” as the war brings them riches in the form of bribes. Indeed, as the crucified reporter for the San Jose Mercury newspaper proved many years ago, the CIA itself is in the drug-running business.
In the United States truth-tellers are persecuted and imprisoned, or they are dismissed as “conspiracy theorists,” “anti-semites,” and “domestic extremists.” The entire Western World consists of a dystopia far worse than the one described by George Orwell in his famous book, 1984.
That Russia and China permit Washington to operate in their media, in their universities, in their financial systems, and in “do-good” NGOs that infiltrate every aspect of their societies demonstrates that both governments have no interest in their survival as independent states. They are too scared of being called “authoritarian” by the Western presstitute media to protect their own independence.
My prediction is that Russia and China will soon be confronted with an unwelcome decision:
accept American hegemony or go to war.

Willful blindness to the criminal actions of your country is not patriotism, it is tyranny. Any that are living under the delusion that our government is in any way concerned about them, their lives, or the lives of our brothers and sisters in the US military, are unimaginably disconnected from reality. The public has been very successfully programmed by the power structure controlled corporate media to blindly support the actions of the criminal cabal that masquerades as legitimate government. This public programming must be broken down if we are to have any chance of salvaging what remains of Earth's life support systems. The recent video release below from journalist Abby Martin should be a stark wake-up call for truly "patriotic" Americans. As shocking as this 30 minute video is, it does not even cover the greatest of all military industrial complex assaults against the web of life, the global climate engineering/weather warfare/ biological warfare assault occurring every single day in our skies. I have communicated with Abby about the geoengineering issue, she is unfortunately not yet willing to acknowledge the reality of the climate engineering assault, and thus she is not willing to address it. This being said, Abby's coverage of the US government's unimaginably criminal treatment of US military personnel is exceptional. The video below is essential viewing for any that truly claim to care about injustice in any sense of the word.
Post-colonial empires are complex organizations. They are organized on a multi-tiered basis, ranging from relative autonomous national and regional allies to subservient vassal states, with variations in between.
In the contemporary period, the idea of empire does not operate as a stable global structure, though it may aspire and strive for such. While the US is the major imperial power, it does not dominate some leading global political-economic and military powers, like Russia and China.
Imperial powers, like the US, have well-established regional satellites but have also suffered setbacks and retreats from independent local economic and political challengers.
Empire is not a fixed structure rigidly embedded in military or economic institutions. It contains sets of competing forces and relations, which can change over time and circumstances. Moreover, imperial allies and clients do not operate through fixed patterns of submission. While there is submission to general agreements on ideology, military doctrine and economic policy identified with imperial rulers, there are cases of vassal states pursuing their own links with non-imperial markets, investors and exporters.
If the global world of imperial power is complex and indeterminate to some degree, so is the internal political, economic, administrative and military structure of the imperial state. The imperial political apparatus has become more heavily weighted on the side of security institutions, than diplomatic and representative bodies. Economic institutions are organized for overseas markets dominated by multi-national corporations against local markets and producers. ‘Market economy’ is a misnomer.
Military-security institutions and budgets utilize most state functionaries and public resources, subordinating markets and diplomatic institutions to military priorities.
While imperial state operations function through their military and civilian administrative apparatus, there are competitive socio-political-class, ethnic and military configurations to consider.
In analyzing the effective or ‘real power’ of the principle institutions of the imperial state, one must distinguish between goals and results, purpose and actual performance. Often commentators make sweeping statements about ‘imperial power and dominance’, while in fact, some policies may have ended in costly losses and retreats due to specific national, local or regional alignments.
Hence it is crucial to look closely at the imperial interaction between its various tiers of allies and adversaries in order to understand the immediate and long-term structures and direction of imperial state policy.
This essay will first describe the leader-follower imperial relationships in four zones: US-Western Europe-Canada, Asia-Pacific, Middle East-Africa and Latin America and identify the terrain of struggles and conflict. This will be followed by an examination of the contemporary ‘map of empire’. We will then contrast the alignment of forces between Western imperial allies and their current adversaries. In the final section we will look at the sources of fragmentation between the imperial state and economic globalization as well as the fissures and fallout between imperial allies and followers.
Tiers of Imperial Allies in the West
Western imperialism is a complex pyramidal structure where the dominant United States interacts through a five-tier system. There is a vertical and horizontal configuration of leader and follower states that cannot be understood through simplistic ‘solar system’ metaphors of ‘centers, semi-peripheries and peripheries’.
Western imperial power extends and overlaps from the first tier to the second, that is, from the United States to France, England, Germany, Italy and Canada. The scope and depth of US military, bureaucratic, political and economic institutions form the framework within which the followers operate.
The second tier of empire ties the top tier to the bottom tiers by providing military support and economic linkages, while securing autonomous levers to enlarge its own geo-political spheres.
The third tier of imperialism in the West comprises Poland, Scandinavia, the Low Countries and Baltic States. These are geographically and economically within the sphere of Western Europe and militarily dependent on US-NATO military dominance. The third tier is a heterogeneous group, ranging from highly advanced and sophisticated welfare-states like Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Holland and Belgium to relatively backward Baltic dependencies like Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania and Poland. They exercise few independent power initiatives and depend on protection from the Tier 1 and 2 imperial centers.
‘Tier four’ states include countries like Greece, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia, Bulgaria and Romania. These are essentially satellite nations, who follow the leader imperial countries, providing bases, troops and tourist resorts. In general, they have no independent voice or decision-making presence in regional or global conflicts. Despite their instability and the occasional outbursts of radical dissent, , the lower tier countries have yet to break with the higher tiers controlled by the EU and NATO hierarchy.
The fifth-tier satellites include recently fabricated mini-states like Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia, Slovenia and Croatia, which act as military bases, tourist havens and economic dependencies. They are the outcome of the first-tier and second-tier policies of ‘regime change’ and state dismemberment through NATO-led wars designed to destroy any remnant of the multi-ethnic social welfare states and degrade Russian influence, especially in Yugoslavia.
Mapping the leader-follower structure of the Western empire depends on the distribution of military resources and their location along the Russian border. The US-EU Empire faces the problem of meeting rising economic demands from the multi-tiered empire, which has exceeded their capacity. This had led to shifting trade alliances and independent pressure to ‘go beyond’the dictates of the imperial leaders.
Leader imperial states have tightened economic and political control over their followers – especially when the military consequences of empire have disrupted everyday life, security and the economy. An ongoing example is the flood of millions of desperate refugees entering Europe, as a result of US imperial war policies in the Middle East and North Africa. This mass influx threatens the political and social stability of Europe. Following the US putsch in the Ukraine and the inevitable response from Moscow, Washington ordered an economic blockade of Russia. The economic consequences of US-imposed sanctions against the giant Russian market has severely affected European exports, especially agriculture and heavy industry and caused instability in the energy market which was dominated by the now banned Russian petroleum and gas producers.
The Eastern Imperial Empire
The US imperial design in East Asia is vastly different in structure, allies and adversaries from that in the West. The leaders and followers are very heterogeneous in the East. The multi-tier US Empire in Asia is designed to undermine and eventually dominate North Korea and China.
Since the Second World War, the US has been the center of the Pacific empire. It also suffered serious military setbacks in Korea and Indo-China. With the aid of its multi-tiered auxiliaries, the US has recovered its influence in Indo-China and South Korea.
The US position, as the first-tier imperial power, is sustained by second-tier imperial allies, such as Australia, New Zealand, India and Japan.
These second-tier allies are diverse entities. For example, the Indian regime is a reticent latecomer to the US Empire and still retains a higher degree of autonomy in dealing with China. In contrast, while Australia and New Zealand retained their dependent military ties with the US, they are increasingly dependent on Chinese commodity markets and investments.
Japan, a powerful traditional economic ally of the US, remains a weak military satellite of the US-Asian Empire.
Third-tier countries include South Korea, Taiwan, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. South Korea is the US’s most important military dependency, despite which it has moved steadily closer to the Chinese market, as has the populous Indonesian Republic.
Taiwan, while a military dependency of the US, has stronger ethnic and economic links to China than the US.
The Philippines is a backward US military vassal-state and former colony, which retains its legacy as an imperial enclave against China. Thailand and Malaysia have remained as third-tier imperial auxiliaries, subject to occasional nationalist or democratic popular upsurges.
The fourth-tier countries within US East Asian Empire are the least reliable because they are relatively ‘new associates’. Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar have transformed from independent statist economies to US-Japanese and Chinese-centered markets, financial and military dependencies.
The US Empire has focus on confronting China through its military, controlling its South China trading routes and trying to form regional economic trade agreements, which exclude China. However, the imperial multi-tiered structure has been mostly limited to various US military harassment and joint ‘war games’ exercises with its clients and ‘allies’. This has had minimal economic input from even their closest allies. The US Eastern Empire has lost significant economic counterparts because of its confrontational approach to China. Its provocative trade-pacts have failed to undermine China’s dynamic economy and trade.
The US Eastern Empire may dominate its multi-tiered allies, vassals and recent converts through its military. It may succeed in provoking a serious military confrontation with China. But it has failed to re-establish a dominant structure within Asia to sustain US imperial superiority in the event of a war.
China drives the growth and dynamism of Asia and is the vital market for regional products as well as a crucial supplier of minerals, precious metals, industrial products, high tech and service activity throughout the region.
The US has occasionally turned to its ‘fifth-tier’ allies among non-state entities in Tibet and Hong Kong and among ethno-Islamist terrorist-separatist groups in Western China, using ‘human rights’ propaganda, but these have had no significant impact in weakening China or undermining its regional influence.
The Eastern Empire can wield none of the economic leverage in China that the Western empire has with Russia. China has established more effective economic relations in Asia than Russia has with the West. However, Russia has greater military capability and a more committed political will to push back Western imperial military threats than China. In recent years, Beijing has adopted a policy of strengthening its high tech military and maritime capabilities. In the wake of the US putsch in the Ukraine and the West’s economic sanctions against Russia, Moscow has been forced to bolster strategic military-economic ties with China. Joint security exercises between Russia and China , as well as greater trade, pose formidable counter-weights to the multi-tiered alliances linking the US and EU to Japan, Australia and South Korea.
In other words, the diverse geographic multi-tiered US imperial structures in the East do not and cannot, dominate a strategic top-tiered alliance of Russia and China, despite their lack of other strong military allies and client states.
If we look beyond European and Asian spheres of Empire to the Middle East and Latin America, the US imperial presence is subject to rapidly evolving power relations. We cannot simply add or subtract from the US and Russian and Chinese rivalries, because these do not necessarily add up to a new ‘imperial’ or ‘autonomous’ center of power.
Imperial Power in the Middle East: The Multi-Tiered Empire in Retreat
The US imperial empire in the Middle East occupies a pivotal point between West and East; between the top and secondary tiers of empire; between Islamic and anti-Islamic alliances.
If we extend the ‘Middle East’ to include South Asia and North Africa we capture the dimensions of the Western imperial quest for supremacy.
The imperial empire in the Middle East reflects US and Western European tiers of power as they interact with local counterparts and satellite states.
The US-EU top tiers link their goals of encircling and undermining Russia and regional adversaries, like Iran, with the regional ambitions of their NATO ally, Turkey.
Imperial powers in the Middle East and North Africa operate through local allies, auxiliaries and satellites as they compete for territorial fragments and power bases following the US ‘wars for regime changes’.
With the US at the top, the European Union, Israel, Turkey and Saudi Arabia comprise the second-tier allies. Egypt, Tunisia, Iraq and Jordan, which are financial and political dependencies of the empire, rank as third-tier. The fourth-tier includes the Gulf states, the Kurd war lords, Lebanese and Yemeni local puppets of the Saudi Monarchy and Israel’s client Palestinian Bantustan in the West Bank.
Saudi and Western-funded regional terrorist groups aspire to fourth-tier membership following a successful ‘regime change’ and territorial fragmentation in Syria.
The terrorist enclaves are located in Syria, Iraq and Libya and play a ‘specific and multi-purpose’ role in undermining adversaries in order to restore imperial dominance.
The Middle East Empire is the least stable region and the most susceptible to internal rivalries.
Israel exercises a unique and unrivaled voice in securing US financial and military resources and political support for its brutal colonial control over Palestine and Syrian territories and captive populations. Saudi Arabia finances and arms autonomous Islamist terrorist groups as part of their policy of advancing the kingdom’s political- territorial designs in Pakistan, Yemen, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Iran and the Gulf. Turkey has its own regional ambitions and terrorist mercenaries. Within this volatile context, the US Empire finds itself competing with its auxiliaries for control over the same Middle East clients.
The Middle East Empire is fraught with powerful adversaries at each point of contention. The huge, independent nation of Iran stands as a powerful obstacle to the West, Saudis, and Israel and competes for influence among satellites in the Gulf, Yemen, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. Hezbollah, a powerful nationalist group within Lebanon, has played a crucial role defending Syria against dismemberment and is linked with Iran against Israeli intervention. Russia has military and trade relations with Syria and Iran in opposition to the Western imperial alliance. Meanwhile, the US imperial satellite states in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and Egypt are rapidly disintegrating in the face of gross corruption, Islamist resurgence, policy incompetence and economic crises.
To speak formally of a ‘Western imperial empire’ in vast sections of the Middle East and North Africa is a misnomer for several reasons:
In Afghanistan, the Nationalist-Islamist Taliban and its allies control most of the country except for a few garrison cities.
Yemen, Libya and Iraq are battleground states, contested terrain with nothing remotely resembling a functioning imperial domain. Iraq is under siege from the North by Kurds, the center by ISIS, the South by nationalist Shi’a militias and mass organizations in contention with grossly corrupt US imperial-backed puppets in Baghdad.
The US-EU mercenaries in Syria have been defeated by Syrian-Russian-Hezbollah-Iranian forces aided by independent Kurds.
Israel behaves more like a militarist ‘settler’ predator usurping historical Palestine than a reliable imperial collaborator.
So far, the empire project in the Middle East and North Africa has been the costliest and least successful for Western imperialism. First and foremost, responsibility for the current Middle East imperial debacle falls directly on the top tier political and military leaders who have pursued policies and strategies (regime change and national dismemberment) incompatible with imperial precepts that normally guide empires.
The top tier of the US imperial-military elite follows Israeli military prerogatives, as dictated by the Zionist Power Configuration (ZPC) embedded within the US state apparatus. Their policy has been to destroy Islamic and Arab-nationalist structures and institutions of power – not conquer and reconfigure them to be absorbed into Western imperial institutions . . . as the US was able to do in Asia and Europe. This parrots the Israeli- settler policy of ‘erasure’ and has made the region totally unstable for imperial trade. The wanton dismemberment of the whole social-political-security institutional structure of Iraq is a prime example of the Israeli policy of ‘erasure’ promoted by US Zionist advisers on a grand scale. The same advisers remain within the top tier imperial decision-making apparatus despite 15 years of abject failure.
Western empire’s multi-tier structure, from the US and Western Europe at the top to Kosovo at the bottom, have followed imperial imperatives. In contrast Israeli imperatives direct US military power into perpetual war in the Middle East through the influential ZPC.
This divergent path and the inability to change course and rectify imperial policy has brought disastrous defeats, which have repercussions throughout the global empire, especially freeing up competitors and rivals in Asia and Latin America.
Tiers of Empire in Latin America
The US imperial empire expanded in Central America and the Caribbean during most of the 19th CENTURY and reigned supreme in the first half of the 20th century. The exceptions included the nationalist revolutions in Haiti in the early 19th century and Paraguay in the mid-19th century. After the US Civil War, the British Empire in Latin America was replaced by the US, which established a dominant position in the region, except during the successful Mexican Revolution.
Several major challenges have emerged to US imperial dominations in the middle of the 20th century.
The centerpiece of anti-imperialism was the Cuban Revolution in 1959, which provided political, ideological and material backing to a continent-wide challenge. Earlier a socialist government emerged in Guyana in 1953 but was overthrown.
In 1965, the Dominican Revolution challenged a brutal US backed-dictator but was defeated by a direct US invasion.
In 1970-73 a democratic socialist government was elected in Chile and overthrown by a bloody CIA coup.
In 1971 a ‘workers and peasants’ coalition backed a nationalist military government in Bolivia only to be ousted by a US-backed military coup.
In Argentina (Peron), Brazil (Goulart) and Peru (Alvarez), nationalist-populist governments, opposed to US imperialism, were elected between the middle 1960’s to the mid 1970’s. Each were overthrown by US-military coups. Apart from the Cuban revolution, the US Empire successfully counter-attacked, relying on US and local business elites to back the military juntas in repressing anti-imperialist and nationalist political parties and movements.
The US Empire re-established its hegemony, based on a multi-tiered military and market directorate, headed at the top by the US. Argentina, Brazil and Chile comprised the second-tier, a group of military dictatorships engaged in large-scale state terror and death squad assassinations and forcing hundreds of thousands into exile and prison.
The third-tier was based on US surrogates, generals and oligarch-families in Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay.
The fourth-tier of satellite regimes included Central-America, except Nicaragua, and all of the Caribbean, except Cuba and (briefly) Grenada.
The US Empire ruled through predator allies and satellite oligarchs and successfully imposed a uniform imperial structure based on neo-liberal policies. US-centered regional trade, investment and military pacts ensured its imperial supremacy, through which they sought to blockade and overthrow the Cuban revolution. The US imperialist system reached its high point between the mid-1970’s to the late 1990’s – the Golden Age of Plunder. After the pillage of the 1990’s, the empire faced a massive wave of challenges from popular uprisings, electoral changes and the collapse of the corrupt auxiliary neo-liberal regimes.
The US imperial empire faced powerful challenges from popular-nationalist regimes from 1999 to 2006 in Venezuela, Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia and Ecuador. Dissident liberal-nationalist governments in Uruguay, Honduras and Paraguay posed their own challenges to imperial control.
The US empire was bogged down in multiple imperial wars in the Middle East (Iraq, Libya, Syria) Asia (Afghanistan) and Europe (Ukraine, Georgia, Yugoslavia), which undermined its capacity to intervene militarily in Latin America.
Cuba, the hemispheric center of the anti-imperialist politics, received economic aid from Venezuela and strengthened its diplomatic, trade and security alliances with the anti-interventionist center-left. This provided an impetus to the formation of independent regional trade organizations, which traded heavily with US imperial rivals, China, Iran and Russia during the ‘commodity boom’.
While the US imperial empire in Latin America was in retreat, it had not suffered a strategic defeat because it maintained its powerful business, political and state auxiliary structures, which were ready to regroup and counter-attack at the ‘right moment’ – the end of the ‘global commodity boom’.
By the end of the first decade of the 21st century, the US Empire counter-attacked, with their political-military clients taking power in the weakest links, Honduras and Paraguay. Since then, neo-liberal extremists have been elected to the presidency in Argentina; a corrupt oligarch-led congress has impeached the President of Brazil; and the ground is being prepared to seize control in Venezuela.
The US Empire re-emerged in Latin America after a decade-long hiatus with a new or re-invigorated multi-tier structure.
At the top-tier is the United States, dependent on enforcement of its control through satellite military and business elites among the second-tier countries, Colombia, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico.
At the third-tier are Chile, Peru, Uruguay and the business-political elites in Venezuela, linked to the US and tier-twocountries.
The fourth-tier is dominated by weak submissive regimes in Central America (Panama, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador), the Caribbean (especially Santa Domingo, Haiti and Jamaica) and Paraguay.
The US has re-assembled its imperial structure in Latin American rapidly, creating an assemblage which is extremely fragile, incoherent and subject to disintegration.
The new neo-liberal regime in Argentine, the centerpiece of the empire, immediately faces the triple threat of mass unrest, economic crisis and a weak regime under siege.
Brazil’s new US neo-liberal constellation of characters are all under indictment for corruption and facing trials, while economic recession and social polarization is undermining their ability to consolidate imperial control.
Venezuela’s rightwing auxiliaries lack the economic resources to escape the demise of the oil economy, hyperinflation and the virulent internecine conflicts within the Right.
The US imperial empire in Latin America could best operate through links with the Asian-Pacific trade pact. However, even with new Asian ties the Latin satellites exhibit none of their Asian counterparts’ stability. Moreover, China’s dominant economic role in both regions has limited US hegemony over the principal props of the empire.
The Myth of a US Global Empire
The ‘narrative’ of a US global empire is based on several profound misconceptions, which have distorted the capacity of the US to dominate world politics. The US regional empires operate in contested universes where powerful counter forces limit imperial dominance.
In Europe, Russia is a powerful counterforce, bolstered by its growing alliances in Asia (China), the Middle East (Iran) and, to a limited extent, by the BRIC countries.
Moreover, Washington’s multi-tiered allies in Europe have occasionally followed autonomous policies, which include Germany’s oil-gas independent agreements with Russia, eroding US efforts to undermine Moscow.
While it may appear that the ‘imperial military, banking, multi-national corporate structure’, at a high level of abstraction, operates within a common imperial enterprise, on issues of everyday policy-making, budgeting, war policies, trade agreements, diplomacy, subversion and the capitalist market-place there are multiple countervailing forces.
The empire’s multi-tiered allies have their own demands as well as sacrifices imposed on the US imperial center.
Internal members of the imperial structure define competing priorities via domestic power wielders.
The US Empire has extended its military operations to over 700 bases across the world but each operation has been subject to restraints and reversals.
US multi-nationals have multi-billion dollar operations but they are forced to adjust to the demands of counter-imperial powers (China). They evade almost a trillion dollars of US taxes while absorbing massive assets from the US Treasury in the form of subsidies, infrastructure and security arrangements.
In sum, while the sun may never set on the empire, the emperors have lost their sight.
UPDATE: IT WAS DELIBERATE! Yellowstone Public Seismographs Taken OFF-line – Wait 'til you see why!
The seismographs monitoring earthquakes around the Yellowstone super-volcano have been deliberately taken OFFLINE from public view. This is a confirmed deliberate act and will stay this way so the public is not able to see seismic activity there. (This story has been UPDATED as of 10:14 AM EDT on April 6, 2016)
Being able to see what is taking place in and around Yellowstone is of great interest to many people because if there is a sudden flurry of earthquake activity, it COULD — but not necessarily — signal a pending eruption.

Dramatic loss of life in the terror attacks in Brussels: 34 killed and more than 180 wounded according to the latest reports.
Prior to the conduct of a police investigation, in the hours following the attacks, the Western media went into overdrive, intimating without evidence that the Islamic State (ISIS) operating out of Raqqa, Northern Syria was responsible for the attacks.
According to the Independent “Isis supporters have been celebrating the Brussels attacks online [social media] as speculation mounts that the group is behind a wave of deadly attacks in the Belgian capital.”
This important analysis and review of US military might by distinguished Canadian geographer Professor Jules Dufour and CRG Research Associate was first published by Global Research in 2007.
US military presence around the World has expanded dramatically in the course of the last five years. This study is largely based on data for the period 2001-2005.

The Worldwide control of humanity’s economic, social and political activities is under the helm of US corporate and military power. Underlying this process are various schemes of direct and indirect military intervention. These US sponsored strategies ultimately consist in a process of global subordination.
Where is the Threat?
The 2000 Global Report published in 1980 had outlined “the State of the World” by focusing on so-called “level of threats” which might negatively influence or undermine US interests.
Twenty years later, US strategists, in an attempt to justify their military interventions in different parts of the World, have conceptualized the greatest fraud in US history, namely “the Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT). The latter, using a fabricated pretext constitutes a global war against all those who oppose US hegemony. A modern form of slavery, instrumented through militarization and the “free market” has unfolded.
Most people who are aware and capable of thought have given up on what is called the “mainstream media.” The presstitutes have destroyed their credibility by helping Washington to lie—“Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction,” “Iranian nukes,” “Assad’s use of chemical weapons,” “Russian invasion of Ukraine,” and so forth. The “mainstream media” has also destroyed its credibility by its complete acceptance of whatever government authorities say about alleged “terrorist events,” such as 9/11 and Boston Marathon Bombing, or alleged mass shootings such as Sandy Hook and San Bernardino. Despite glaring inconsistencies, contradictions, and security failures that seem too unlikely to be believable, the “mainstream media” never asks questions or investigates. It merely reports as fact whatever authorities say.
The so-called “Global War on Terror,” which has wreaked the globe in ceaseless warfare, has long been draped in the language of humanitarian imperialism. The United States has worked tirelessly in order to paint military invasions as liberatory efforts, using the 9/11 attacks as both a shield and a catalyst.
What is the real role of the US military around the world? What is really the agenda behind the ongoing perpetual wars being waged all over the globe? All too often in the name of "freedom and democracy"? Americans must awaken from the programming and lies that have been pumped into them by the power structure. Willful ignorance of the truth is not an excuse for supporting government tyranny. We all have a responsibility to seek out verifiable facts, we all have a responsibility to do our individual parts for the common good. We will all sink or swim together. The video below is an exceptional and compelling compilation of facts which exposes the total tyranny and hypocrisy of our own government and so called "elected officials". It was produced by a radio host friend and activist, Dan Schultz, who is doing his best to get the truth out in a very straightforward and inarguable manner. This 23 minute video is well worth the time to view and to pass on to others. My sincere gratitude to Dan for putting it together.
This excellent article by Glenn Greenwald —http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article43438.htm — reminded me that I have meant to write about how every sort of interest attaches to the government’s propaganda in order to make its point.
Greenwald shows how the Snowden haters in the US media seized on the Paris attack in order to blame Snowden. The American, indeed Western, media consists of the scum of the earth, and they all together are no match for Glenn Greenwald. Greenwald shows that they are so dimwitted that they cannot remember their previous stories long enough to save them from making laughing stocks of themselves when they gang up on Snowden.
The presstitutes that constitute the Western media had a great incentive to buy in to the false story of the Paris attack, because they saw an opportunity to blame the attack on Snowden, who showed them up for what they are — whores who lie for the government for money.

Former Prominent CIA Officer Shares Details Of The Government’s All Out War Against Whistleblowers With GeoengineeringWatch.org
Many ask why there are not more whistleblowers coming forward to sound the alarm on the climate engineering insanity occurring around the globe. Many use the "lack of whistleblowers" excuse to remain in denial about the all too obvious climate engineering atrocities in our skies. Those who use this excuse to avoid facing reality clearly have no clue whatsoever about what the criminal cabal (masquerading as our government) does to anyone that dares to try and expose the truth. Veteran CIA officer, Kevin Shipp, has shown exceptional courage by openly and actively speaking out about the epidemic tyranny in the halls of our government.
Kevin Shipp, former CIA Officer and Antiterrorism expert, held several high level positions in the CIA. He was assigned as a protective agent for the Director of Central Intelligence, a counterintelligence investigator, a Counter Terrorism Center officer, and internal security investigator, supervisor of high risk protective operations and polygraph examiner. Mr. Shipp functioned as program manager for the Department of State, Diplomatic Security, Anti Terrorism Assistance global police training program. He is the recipient of two CIA Meritorious Unit Citations, three Exceptional Performance Awards and a Medallion for overseas operations. He is the author of From the Company of Shadows – CIA Operations and the War on Terrorism. Mr. Shipp has been a regular guest on The American Heroes Channel as an intelligence and terrorism expert and has been the subject of numerous radio interviews and newspaper articles. His website can be found at KevinMShipp.com.
More insight from Kevin is contained within his most recent communication with me, shown below.
Attached is an expose' of the system classified agencies use to silence whistle blowers from revealing unconstitutional or illegal operations.
As a decorated Agency officer and internal investigator, I witnessed this mechanism being used on good, innocent employees, and their families. That is when I decided to expose it.
God speed to you in revealing the tyranny that has taken over our Constitutional system.
In his book "From The Company Of Shadows", Kevin gives a highly acclaimed account of what is happening behind the curtain of government secrecy. After some communications with Kevin, he has supplied geoengineeringwatch.org with the hard hitting statement below which outlines what is done to whistleblowers with shocking clarity. My most sincere thanks to Mr. Shipp for his uncommon and exceptional courage in the fight for the greater good.
California regulators on Thursday closed 33 oil company wells that had injected wastewater into potentially drinkable aquifers protected by federal law.
The new closures bring to 56 the number of oil-field wastewater injection wells shut down by the state after officials realized they were pumping oil-tainted water into aquifers that potentially could be used for drinking or irrigation.
All but two of the latest closures are in Kern County, in California’s drought-stricken Central Valley. One lies in Ventura County, another in northern Los Angeles County. Officials with California’s Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources spent Friday verifying that they had, in fact, closed. Of the 33, only 21 had been actively injecting wastewater before Thursday.
“This is part of our ongoing effort to ensure that California’s groundwater resources are protected as oil and gas production take place,” said Steven Bohlen, the division’s supervisor.
California’s oil fields contain large amounts of salty water that comes to the surface mixed with the oil. It must be separated from the petroleum and disposed of, often by injecting it back underground. Much of the water is pumped back into the same geologic formation it came from. But enough left-over water remains that companies must find other places to put it.
Fears of contamination
The division, part of California’s Department of Conservation, for years issued oil companies permits to inject their left-over water into aquifers that were supposed to be off-limits, protected by the federal Safe Drinking Water Act.
The problem, detailed in a Chronicle investigation earlier this year, raised fears of water contamination in a state struggling through a historic, four-year drought.
So far, however, no drinking water supplies have been found to be tainted by the injections.
Still, some environmentalists expressed outrage that so few wells had been closed.
The division has identified 178 wells that were injecting into legally protected aquifers with relatively high water quality, defined as those with a maximum of 3,000 parts per million of total dissolved solids. More than 2,000 other wells inject into aquifers that would be harder to use for drinking water, either because they are too salty or because they also contain oil.
“This is too little, too late to protect our water,” said Kassie Siegel, director of the Climate Law Institute at the Center for Biological Diversity. “With each passing day the oil industry is polluting more and more of our precious water.”
The division reported Friday, however, that not all 178 wells required closure. Some had already been shut down by their operators, while others had been converted into wells for extracting oil — not dumping wastewater.

Numerous news outlets are now reporting that ISIS forces are in total disarray and even, in some cases, completely on the run following the start of Russian airstrikes last week.
If you have been involved in the struggle to expose and halt climate engineering for any duration, you have certainly heard the "our government would not do this to us" programmed response of total denial. Even in groups who seem to be very aware of government criminality and tyranny, facing the realization that their own government has made them a part of a lethal global atmospheric spraying experiment for decades is just too much for most to even consider. The more material distractions a population has to entertain them and occupy their attention, the deeper into denial they descend. America is a glaring example of this kind of societal programming. The US population may be the last potential counterbalancing force that could have a chance at stopping the runaway juggernaut of global power which is responsible for the ongoing climate engineering insanity and so much more. We must all work together in the critical fight to awaken the masses, to shatter the delusion and denial. The article below is an excellent exposé of societal conditioning and programing.
Attention U.S. Military Personnel! Did You Know You Swore an Oath to Defend a FOREIGN Private Corporation (United States, Inc.)?
If you are in the U.S. military and care about freedom and life, you need to be aware that you swore an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States, Inc., a foreign corporation. Even if you are not in the U.S. military, you still need to pay attention to the information in this article, because what the U.S. military is doing to the world directly or indirectly affects everyone on Earth. If you need proof that the United States is a corporation, read further and I will show the proof you need.
The content in block quotation was extracted from my article titled Proof that the USA is Controlled by Foreign Corporations. It shows you strong evidence that the United States is a corporation.
By now you should know that the United States is a corporation. If you want proof of this, look at subsections 15 and 15(A) in Title 28 U.S. Code § 3002 and you should see this sentence, ““United States” means— (A) a Federal corporation”.
What most people do not know about the United States, Inc. is that it is a FOREIGN corporation. Anyone who works for this foreign corporation is a foreign agent and is unknowingly or knowingly committing fraud against the American people. It is no different than what the agents of the British Empire did to the American people back in the 1700s.
To be more specific, the politicians working in Washington D.C. and nearly every politician, judge, attorney, police officer, and government agent working throughout the USA are FOREIGN agents. Because these government employees are foreign agents, DO NOT VOTE for any of them to represent you in office, including the president. If you do vote for them, you are committing TREASON against the Republic for the United States of America (the 50 union states).
Whether these foreign agents realize it or not, they are conspiring or helping the NWO and the Vatican to enslave the American people. As Americans, we have lost control of our government over a century ago. This is what happens to a nation when its people become ignorant, take freedom for granted, ignore the actions of politicians, and do not study their history. …
The United States is a corporation located in Washington D.C., also known as the District of Columbia. Washington D.C. is the military center for the NWO. The United States, Inc. has thousands of franchises and contractors. One of its major contractors is the military industrial complex.
The United States, Inc. is committing crime against humanity by unlawfully going to war with other countries in the name of “freedom” and “democracy.” What it is actually doing is spreading its franchise throughout the world, similar to Walmart and McDonald’s.
Be aware that when I use the term “United States” or “United States, Inc.” in this article, I am referring to the legal name UNITED STATES, INC., which is written in ALL CAPITAL letters. When it comes to the legal system, capitalizing the letters of a word or a name in various ways can significantly change the meaning of that word or name. The purpose of this is to trick you to give up your natural rights. For more information about this process, read my article titled The Legal Name Game to Enslave Your Soul.
I heard that the UNITED STATES, INC was bought by the United Nations (UN) in 2013 and it is now in the process of changing the name UNITED STATES, INC. into the name UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC. I have not found strong evidence of this, so I am not sure if it is true.
Proof that U.S. Military Personnel Work for the Corporate “United States” and not the Continental United States (the Country)
As mentioned in the block quotation above, under Title 28 U.S. Code § 3002, the United States is a federal corporation. Another important thing you need to know about the United States is that it is also a foreign and private corporation. Because of this, U.S. military personnel have sworn an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States, Inc., a FOREIGN power.
This means that U.S. military personnel have sworn an allegiance to a foreign power, and therefore their role is to defend the Constitution of the United States, Inc. against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Who are the enemies you may ask? We, the American people and the people of the world.
This foreign corporation does not give a SHIT about the American people and American soldiers, so stop following its orders and learn about your natural rights. Also learn how to defend your natural rights, so that you can protect yourself from the fraudulent laws of the United States, Inc., which are not really laws but are corporate acts and statutes (rules and codes).
The Constitution of the United States is just an equity contract that is used for commerce. It has nothing to do with human rights. The United States’ most profitable “products” are UNITED STATES CITIZENS. This foreign corporation sees us as its products, which is why it does not give a SHIT about us.
Did you know that the U.S. federal government trades your birth certificate on the stock market? As Americans, we have been securitized to finance the unlawful activities of the CRIMINAL United States, Inc. One important thing you need to know about the United States government is that it is also a foreign corporation. Click here for the proof.
As for military personnel, the United States is only using them to help it expand its business throughout the world. It is similar to how McDonald’s is expanding its business throughout the world. The main difference is that the United States is killing people through unlawful wars and McDonald’s is killing people through unhealthy foods. Why would anyone with a heart and a soul want to support this criminal corporation?
Military personnel in other Western countries and many Eastern countries have also sworn an oath to defend the corporate version of their country. These corporate states are controlled by the New World Order (NWO), an international secret organization controlled by secret societies. The NWO is planning to use the United States, Inc. and its contractors (i.e, the Military Industrial Complex, CIA, NSA, FBI, DHS, MI5, MI6, Mossad) to destroy all nations and force everyone to live under their totalitarian one-world government.
Why You Should Not Vote
As I mentioned previously, the politicians working in Washington D.C. and nearly every politician, judge, attorney, police officer, and government agent throughout the USA are working for the United States, Inc. and therefore they are foreign agents. If you were to vote for them to represent you in office, you would be committing treason against the Republic for the United States of America.
This year (2015), many Americans are rooting for Donald Trump to be president, because they think he could be the guy to save the United States for the reasons that he is not bought off and has good character. Even if he is not bought off by the leaders of the NWO, he is still running to be president of a corporation. If he were to win the election, he would be hired to be the CEO of the United States, which is a foreign corporation. The current President (Obama) is not the President of a country. He is the CEO of the corporation called the United States, Inc.
STOP voting for these treasonist politicians to represent you in office. I will say it again, STOP VOTING for these TREASONIST POLITICIANS to represent you in office. Do I have to say this a third time so that it gets through your head? These politicians do not give a SHIT about the American people and the rest of humanity. If they TRULY care about us, they would not sell us out for money and power. Be aware that I am talking about the politicians working in Washington D.C., which is also a FOREIGN private corporation.
While American soldiers are overseas fighting for their lives and dying, these politicians are drinking beers, raping little kids, sleeping with prostitutes, snorting cocaine, counting there 100 dollar bills, and chilling on their yachts and laughing at the American soldiers who died fighting the engineered wars that made these politicians rich.
STOP supporting and voting for these treasonist politicians. They are a bunch of COWARDS. We do not have real brave politicians who truly care about us anymore, like John F. Kennedy. In my opinion, JFK was the last U.S. president who truly cared about us.
These politicians working in Washington D.C. are not friends of the American people; instead they are our enemies. Why? Because the secret organization (NWO) that they swore an oath to have declared a war on the American people and the people of the world. Read the book Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars, An Introduction Programming Manual and you will know what I am talking about.
To be fair, there may be a few good politicians working in Washington D.C. who are doing their best to stop the NWO. However, they need the American people to wake up and support them. It is not just the American people that need to wake up. The rest of the people of the world need to wake up too. So learn to unite and stop fighting one another.
Fighting only divides us which is exactly what the NWO wants. It is a lot easier to enslave a divided civilization than a united civilization. This is why the NWO likes to engineer race wars. The race wars between Blacks and Whites, and Muslim and Christians, and among other races are engineered by the secret societies of the NWO. If you want to be free, stop playing and supporting their “con game” to enslave the human race.
As the global economic house of cards continues to collapse with increasing momentum, the vast majority of global populations are, unfortunately, still looking through a very tainted and distorted lens. They cannot bring themselves to accept reality on countless fronts. Denial is especially tenacious in regard to the ongoing climate engineering atrocities occurring in our skies. Our sense of reason is our greatest gift, but for most this sense has long ago been overridden by societal conditioning, programming, and propaganda. The image below is of Dubai, a city built on sand, powered by finite fossil fuels complete with toxic geoengineered skies.

The implosion of the temporary reality we have all known is already well under way, the collapsing Chinese stock markets are only a harbinger of what is to come. Global shipping is in free-fall as shipping rates plunge, unlimited money printing can no longer hide what is unfolding around the world. China has kept its deceptive GDP (Gross Domestic Product) going in the past in the same manner as the rest of the global economy – with smoke, mirrors, and lies. "Ghost cities" were one of the methods used by the Chinese to keep the illusion of growth going. Now, the inevitable is taking hold, the illusion is disintegrating by the day. The images below are cities with no inhabitants which were constructed to keep the wheels of industry turning and the GDP rising in the East.
The image below is from what has been termed "The scariest housing bubble"
Above is an image of thousands upon thousands of unsold cars parked up on a airport runway near St Petersburg in Russia. They are all imported from Europe, and then parked and left to rot. Consequently, the airport is now unusable for its original purpose.
The end of the reality we have all known draws nearer at blinding speed. Those who cannot see this inevitability will very soon have their eyes opened, they will have no choice but to face the truth. Modern society is comparable to a snake eating its own tail. In the last 40 years the human population has doubled while global wildlife populations have declined by over 50% in the same amount of time, is it rational to believe such a trend could continue? The epitome of human insanity is the attempt to manipulate the climate, the attempt to control Earth's very life support systems.

Industrialized civilization is the mechanism by which climate engineering has been conducted and perpetuated. If the total collapse of this paradigm brings an end to the geoengineering juggernaut of planetary omnicide (and an end to countless destructive factors related to militarized civilization), is that not a step forward for what is yet left of life on Earth? The global elite have long since been preparing for total collapse which their own actions and governance has helped to fuel from the beginning. We all have a responsibility to face reality head-on. Only in doing so will we have any chance of altering the outcome of what is unfolding in a positive direction. If our existence is not about fighting for the greater good (regardless of the odds), what is it about? If it is not about fighting for the future of our children, then what right did we have to bring them into the world? We owe our lives to the children and to the planet they will need to survive. If we can expose and halt climate engineering before the power structure is ready for this to happen, before global collapse is total, we could yet change the outcome. If all of us work together, without fear and trepidation, with focus and conviction, who can say what we may still accomplish for the greater good even at this dark hour. Make your voice heard while there is yet time.
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.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
The very word 'secrecy' is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths, and to secret proceedings.
John F. Kennedy
JFK was assassinated shortly after he made the speech from which this quote was taken. This is the society in which we live and that many have so far chosen not only to accept but to embrace. The 13 minute video below is an exceptional portrayal of the dark corner we find ourselves in, and how we got here.
We must all stand together in the battle to expose the insanity while we can, tomorrow will be too late.
Societies around the globe have, in general, been trained and conditioned to believe their governments exist for the benefit of the people. This conclusion could not be further from the truth in most cases and under most circumstances. How many times have we been told "if the government is doing this (geoengineering, for example), it must be for our own good". Such a statement is rooted in delusion, denial, and fear. Governments around the globe are nothing more than state sponsored crime syndicates. These cabals of power are concerned with only one objective, power and central control over the populations on which their empires depend.
The true cradle of power in the world is located within the small circle of unelected central bankers, this is a verifiable fact that is not difficult to confirm for any that take the time to do any objective investigation. The money printers control every aspect of society, including the military. Those who wield power are masters of manipulation, psychopaths literally rule the world. Populations must be awakened what is unfolding, time is not on our side. The 15 minute video below is a brilliant exposé central authority paradigm that will be our end if it is allowed to continue in it's current form, it is worth ever minute of the time it takes to view it.
It is imperative for populations to wake up and face reality, the gravity and immediacy of what we face cannot be overstated. DW
Many Americans celebrate and glorify wars and conflicts, that is what they have been trained and conditioned to do. We are told America's aggressive behavior all over the globe is about "freedom and democracy", but what are the real motives and agendas behind the endless wars? It is about keeping the completely unsustainable fossil fuel paradigm going as long as possible. It is about hiding a very rapidly unfolding collapse of industrialized society from the masses, which is not hard to do since the most of the population does not want to know what the reality is in the first place. Resource wars are escalating all over the planet as the fight for remaining resources escalates. I respect and regard US veterans that have served for the right motives, I have personally given to veterans causes for many years. Unfortunately those in power have used them for the primary purpose of gaining more power and control. The article below is an exceptional portrayal of the hydrocarbon fuel conundrum and the endless carnage that has been created by the quest for what is left of this finite power source that has already pushed the biosphere past the point of no return. Though climate engineering is not mentioned in the article, it is a core factor in regard to the escalating resource wars.
Our collective reality is changing by the day. How much time do we have left? Though it is impossible for anyone to answer this question, the single greatest leap we could take in the right direction, a direction that would buy us more time, is to expose and halt the ongoing climate engineering insanity. If we can do this, we can then begin to face the long list of remaining challenges the human race has created for itself.
The tipping point has long since come and gone for the Earth's climate system though mainstream sources have not yet fully acknowledged this fact. The collapse of industrialized civilization is only a matter of time and likely very near, there is no turning back. The miraculous and hospitable planet that we have all known has been decimated beyond the point of no return in any time frame that matters. The scientific community has recently sent out a warning by setting the "global doomsday clock" to 3 minutes before midnight.
Does this mean we have no chance? Should giving up the fight for the common good be considered? Absolutely not. So long as there is a chance that the planet's life support systems can still be salvaged (and there is a chance), it is our responsibility to fight on. Marching in the battle to preserve a future for our children is not an option, it is our primary obligation in life. The human race is free falling into near term total extinction because of it's own behavior and apathy. It is this apathy that has allowed psychotic individuals to wield power unchecked and unchallenged for centuries.
"The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything."
This is Einstein's quote, and it is completely correct. Even at this late hour so many are "sitting the bench" waiting for someone else to take action an move the ball forward in regard to the fight for the common good. The "Doomsday Clock" assessment from the scientific community is extremely dire and this assessment does not even mention or consider what is mathematically the greatest and most immediate threat of all, global climate engineering. A Hopi Indian elder has given us words of wisdom that we should all take to heart each and every day.
"We are the ones we have been waiting for."
No matter how dark the horizon, it is not yet black. Unshakable meaning and purpose exists in firmly focusing ones efforts and energies on the fight for the common good. Educate yourself and stand your ground in the battle to sound the alarm, all of our voices are essential in the fight to expose and halt climate engineering.

This article is going to be quite different in format since it will contain more videos than my comments so as to try to tie together and express more than I ever could write in one submission. The theme that runs through all is to dramatize how humans are unknowingly being subjugated at every level and most aspects and phases of life, living and the pursuit of higher consciousness.
It’s an attempt on my part to connect some dots that, when considered side-by-side, may prompt readers to think about what’s going on to implement what I, and many others, expect is “corporate-acracy” or fascism.
The perfect place to start is with the TPP—Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement.
The TPP What You’re Not Being Told
Readers, can you wrap your minds around 600 corporate representatives being able to read the TPP agreement but the public, whom will be affected the most, cannot know what’s in it? Even Congress can’t see it! Whoa! Doesn’t that sound like the shenanigans that went on to pass the Affordable Care Act aka ObamaCare.
That kind of BSing regarding transparency has to stop!
That “Truth and Action” reporting on JH15 is “mammoth” in size, scope, and videos! Readers will see video after video of military armored vehicles, etc. moving across the USA – but for what reason? With whom is the U.S. military going to war in 10 U.S. states? Moving all that equipment and personnel, including vehicles marked “UN” around the USA definitely should awaken any skeptic to a “New World Order” of governance apparently coming to the USA!
Are Readers Aware of FEMA camps?
More state-by-state information about FEMA camps is here.

Finally and thankfully, African-Americans are awakening to what’s happened, and is happening, to them including medical experiments, e.g., the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, and they will be taking action!
Here’s a video news report (WHDT) about what has the African-American community so upset about the CDC/FDA and vaccines.
The British Medical Journal (BMJ) published a compelling article about the U.S. CDC’s receiving funding from industry after Jeanne Lenzer, a BMJ journalist, looked into the money part that’s behind the CDC’s infamous statement, “CDC, our planners, and our content experts wish to disclose they have no financial interests or other relationships with the manufacturers of commercial products . . . CDC does not accept commercial support.”
According to Lenzer, “Despite the agency’s disclaimer, the CDC does receive millions of dollars in industry gifts and funding, both directly and indirectly, and several recent CDC actions and recommendations have raised questions about the science it cites, the clinical guidelines it promotes, and the money it is taking.”
Furthermore, The Washington Post reported that “Pharmaceutical firms paid to attend meetings of panel that advises FDA, emails show.” Therein is a HUGE indication of corporate influence over government agencies, which definitely should not be.
GMO ‘Phood’ and its Problems – One picture is worth a thousand words!
The question everyone in science ought to ask is this: Didn’t Dr. Seralini’s study use the same strain of rats as Monsanto used in its study to prove GMOs safe? However, Seralini’s study went on for two years, whereas Monsanto’s study lasted for only three months!
Jerry Rosman, formerly a GMO crop farmer turned organic farming consultant, claims the FDA is not concerned about GMOs!
What’s Happening to the Air We Breathe?
Look at the sky above for an impressively visible clue. It’s called weather geoengineering. Here are some videos about that.
Here’s an article which may explain more about climate control.
If you’re a frequent flyer, perhaps, you’d better know about aerotoxic air syndrome. Watch the video embedded in “Climate Engineering Contamination And Aerotoxic Air Syndrome.”
Gerald Celente of The Trends Journal wraps up much of what’s going on globally better than anyone, I think, has for the last 30 or so years. Very few people, in my opinion, have the insights, passion and “stage presence” quite like Gerald Celente! What do you think?
Will humans be treated like cattle getting readied to go to slaughter? Is that the ultimate new order?

Are Readers Aware that Alternative Media Censorship is Going On?
Here’s proof that censorship is alive and well in the USA. Need I mention that my computer also is being compromised; files go missing; and my Norton security program freezes my computer when I try accessing ActivistPost.com for whom I write, plus research files!
Who’s to Blame?
So really, why are humans, our sovereign rights given by Creator and Nature, and the intricacies of our daily lives being overtaken by Big Brother governments? Is there a possibility that we, collectively, are to blame? How can I make such a comment that probably indicates we are allowing these indiscretions to come down upon us almost like biblical plagues?
However, nothing can compare with the Bohemian Grove meetings in Northern California where clandestine meetings with ‘elites’ from all walks of life take place. This video shows some of the arcane trappings of Bohemian Grove. The BG crowd in the past included politicians who were BG participants before they became U.S. presidents! See my article, “Presidential Candidates Apparent Vetting Process” to understand just how pervasive apparent dysfunctionality is in the so-called elites.
One of the events at the BG annual encampment is “The Cremation of Care.” Here is a video of the actual onsite druid-like ritual filmed by InfoWars. Are they really paying homage to the Owl of Bohemia in a sacrificial way?
What would you think of your member of government, or any corporate elite, who participates in such rituals? Can those rituals be compared with witchcraft, black magic or as some speculate, Satanism, which actually is a ‘religion’ of sordid sorts?
Furthermore, are the men who participate at BG—no women allowed—the very same ‘sickos’ who mandate how we are to live; promote wars our spouses, relatives, children and friends are sent to fight; and constantly are formulating treaties and laws for a one-world-government?
Citizens of the USA need to wake up to what’s going on and become engaged in civics, something not taught in schools anymore. I wonder why.
To end this connect-the-dots overview, I’d like to lighten up just a bit, and share a video of a clever songwriter and his especially witty ditty “If My Nose Was Running Money…”
God bless the USA and all it was supposed to stand for that now is being suppressed.

I once saw an image of a man standing on a beach in Sri Lanka just after the earthquake of 2004 had occurred. He was staring out at the rapidly receding ocean and seemed to have no comprehension of the tsunami that was nearly upon him. This image is a metaphor of the human race. Our biosphere is free falling into the sixth mass extinction event on planet Earth, it's not coming, it is here. The "anthropocene era" is the age of humans, the age of destruction to our once thriving planet. As the walls close in, the depth of denial in many grows more tenacious. Those who are desperately trying send out a warning are referred to as "alarmists". Environmental collapse is directly connected to total economic collapse, the two issues are inseparable. The time George Orwell eluded to is indeed here, "the further a society drifts from the truth the more it will hate those who speak it." The recent 2 minute video below from CBS news is shocking, but only the smallest glimpse of what is unfolding globally.
Of all the anthropogenic assaults on the natural world, global climate engineering is mathematically the greatest and most deadly. Only nuclear cataclysm has the potential to eclipse the global mortality already caused by the decades long geoengineering/weather warfare/ biological warfare. Climate engineering has even greatly increased the threat we face from nuclear cataclysm due to the damage that has now been inflicted on the atmosphere from the particulate spraying, which has caused ozone layer destruction and now nuclear power plants are much more vulnerable to CME events. We are all in a fight for life, our priorities should and must reflect this fact. Make your voice heard.
The "Holocene Epoch" is a term which refers to "the age of man". This age is rapidly coming to a chaotic and destructive end. Man's arrogance and contempt toward the planet which has allowed him to exist is truly beyond comprehension. The epitome of this contempt and insanity can be most easily recognized by man's attempt to control Earth's very life support systems, to control the climate. Modern Civilization has completely lost sight of its ultimate and total dependence on the natural world. Much of our "highly educated" society has virtually no understanding or regard whatsoever of the complex and miraculous factors that allow life to exist on our once thriving planet. Yes, those that rule the world are unimaginably corrupt and psychotic, but those in society put them there and allowed them to stay in power in exchange for the material goods and distractions that industrialized society provided. Only if we face the whole truth do we have any chance of changing our course of certain extinction. The article below (like so many others from countless sources) does not acknownledge the critical climate engineering issue, this being said, the data it contains is still valid.
As more and more people wake up to the completely unbridled tyranny of our government, the power structure is preparing in every way they can to control the masses. They will try to do this in the most efficient way possible. Why did the US Census Bureau GPS each and every one of our doorsteps in the 2010 census? Good question. US Census paid minions hiked nearly a mile (past a locked gate with "no trespassing" signs and multiple security cameras) into my mountaintop home to GPS my front door, not once, but twice. It seems they wanted to be certain they had the correct GPS location for me. As the criminal cabal that runs the world is more and more exposed, they will become much more dangerous. No one will feel safe anywhere once they realize and understand their homes are potential targets and every bit of their communications are monitored. This is how the few in power can terrorize and control the many, this is the road we are on. The article below documents yet another addition to the US government's arsenal of weapons that will likely soon enough be used to control it's own rapidly awakening population. The short video in the article is worth viewing also. The gleeful attitudes of the weapons designers in the video is disturbing, but typical of the military industrial complex mentality.The architects of the atmospheric spraying programs behave in a similar fashion, I have previously recorded my communication with one of them (Part 1 / Part 2). They all feel very justified with their actions and what they are participating in. How do you feel about what they are doing? Those in power believe they have the right to control the weather, you, and everything else. If you don't agree, make your voice heard in the battle to awaken the masses while we yet have time to make a difference.
