Deep State Pushing America Into Wars - The Horror! The Horror!

Politics / US Military May 06, 2017 - 03:24 AM GMT

By: James_Quinn

Politics

In Part One of this article I detailed how propaganda has been utilized by the Deep State for decades to control the minds of the masses and allow those in control to reap the benefits of never ending war. In Part Two I will discuss recent events, false flags, and propaganda campaigns utilzed by the Deep State to push the world to the brink of war.


“We penetrated deeper and deeper into the heart of darkness”Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

The use of graphic images, electronically transmitted across the world in an instant, along with a consistent false narrative promoted by the captured corporate media, is the preferred means of appealing to the emotions of those who want to believe atrocity propaganda. Instigating a march to war through the use of unfounded fear, misinformation, staged photo ops, and appealing to passions and prejudices was as revolting to Albert Einstein  in the 1930s as it is today to normal thinking individuals.

“He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, senseless brutality, deplorable love-of-country stance, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.” – Albert Einstein

It seems the level and intensity of the propaganda campaigns has ratcheted up dramatically in the last half dozen years and appears to be reaching a crescendo as we speak. It’s almost as if the Deep State is frantically trying to maintain the status quo, even as the worldwide financial Ponzi scheme of debt approaches the point of collapse. The domestic conditions in Europe, North America, and Asia are deteriorating rapidly. The propaganda doled out trying to convince citizens their financial situation is not worsening has failed.

The people realize they have been screwed and continue to be screwed by the politicians, bankers and corporate fascists running the show. This is the major reason Trump was elected. People were desperate for someone who offered them a promise of economic revival and reduced government interference in their lives.

The problem is no one is capable of saving the US Titanic. The iceberg was struck sixteen years ago when the Deep State engineered a plundering campaign driving the national debt from $5.8 trillion to $20 trillion, and unfunded welfare liabilities to $200 trillion. Unpaid for tax cuts will not save us. Unpaid for shovel ready infrastructure projects will not save us. Threatening foreign countries with tariffs will not bring manufacturing jobs back. Excessively low interest rates will not spur investment, but it will create a pension crisis and impoverish senior citizens.

Devaluing your currency when every country in the world attempts the same “solution” will not work. Passing an Obamacare lite healthcare plan that keeps mega-corporation insurance companies and hospitals in charge solves nothing. The demographic time bomb of boomers turning 65 cannot be reversed. Providing the appearance of normalcy and improvement by artificially boosting the stock and real estate markets to all-time bubble highs only makes the coming crash that much more devastating.

It is clearly evident to me the drumbeat of war is louder than it has been in decades as this Fourth Turning enters its ninth year. Every previous U.S. Fourth Turning has climaxed with a more horrific war than the previous, as the technological “advances” allow the Deep State controllers to create cannon fodder more efficiently. The year 2011 seems to have been the nexus for the Deep State to create new enemies and sow the seeds of discontent and revolution around the globe. U.S. troops withdrew from Iraq in 2011, while troop levels in Afghanistan remained low.

The neo-cons were running out of conflicts to keep the profits flowing. The U.S. economy was headed back into recession as the temporary effects of the Fed’s QE heroin injection and Obama’s massive porkulus plan were leading to the inevitable drug withdrawal and fall back into recession. The Deep State managers had to act fast. They needed new enemies, more wars and more QE.

Was it just a coincidence Hosni Mubarak was overthrown in Egypt during 2011 while the U.S. stood by and did nothing? After the democratically elected replacement turned out to be a Muslim extremist, we fully supported the next coup which placed a military dictator in charge. He just got a grand welcome from Trump a few weeks ago. I guess military dictators are OK when they do what we say.

A dictator who had the nerve to not honor the U.S. dollar as the currency of choice in his kingdom, Muammar Gaddafi, was swiftly overthrown and killed by a NATO force led by the U.S. in 2011. A stable country was turned into a terrorist haven overnight. It’s now a lawless hellhole inhabited by ISIS, Al Qaeda, and various other Muslim terrorist factions. Along with the vacuum left in Iraq, Libya became a breeding ground for terrorists, armed by the U.S.

Shockingly, after decades of stability, factions within Syria began a civil war against Assad and his government in 2011. Do you see a connection yet? Just as U.S. military presence in the Middle East began to wane, all hell began breaking out across the region. McCain and his band of neo-con world changers helped arm the “moderate rebels” fighting against the suddenly evil Assad. These moderates became ISIS, who now suddenly became the new bogeyman to be feared by Americans, as professionally produced videos of beheadings and other atrocities began to be disseminated by the mainstream media.

The War on Terror had a new jolt of gusto and increased funding for more military miss-adventures. The propagandists ignored the inconvenient fact Assad was fighting against ISIS and Al Qaeda. They ignored the fact Assad ruled over a secular country – not a country run by religious American hating Muslim zealots. Fighting against Assad and ISIS doubled the arms dealers’ profits.

Then Russia threw a monkey wrench into the Deep State plans. They fully supported Assad as an ally because they need his ports. The real reason Assad was attacked was because Saudi Arabia and Qatar need to build their natural gas pipeline across Syria to reach Europe. Virtually all of Europe is dependent upon Russia to supply their natural gas. The Deep State’s retaliation for Putin’s support of Assad was to overthrow the democratically elected president of the Ukraine who had rejected NATO for a closer partnership with Russia. The U.S. instigated coup and installation of a subservient puppet led Putin to put Crimea under Russian control and support Ukrainian rebels as they fought the new regime. This dramatic increase in tensions between NATO and Russia again generated more profits for the military industrial complex. Missiles and troops are pouring into the NATO countries surrounding Russia.

The American propaganda specialists now had their new enemies. Syria and Russia, with Iran and North Korea providing occasional fear mongering diversions, became the focus of the neo-cons and their pliant media mouthpieces. The false flag downing of a Malaysian airliner over the Ukraine was blamed on Putin and Russia. No radar proof or physical evidence was ever presented implicating the Ukrainian rebels. They were winning the civil war and the U.S./NATO needed to turn world opinion against Putin.

The first attempt at a false flag gas attack in Syria occurred in 2013, as the U.S. backed rebels murdered over 500 innocent victims in an attempt to turn world opinion against Assad and provoke NATO involvement on par with Libya. When this atrocity propaganda failed to work, the Deep State turned to heartstring pulling photographs of dead and injured children, with a consistent narrative spewed by every media pundit as instructed by the controllers.

The first atrocity propaganda photo was in 2015, functioning as twofer on the propaganda scale. The picture of a three year old Syrian boy who drowned when his boat from Turkey to Greece capsized was spread across the world on every media outlet for a week as faux outrage against Assad and Putin was ramped up to hysterical levels. The evil Assad had caused this refugee crisis, even though it was the rebels who started the war.

The blame for this tragic death was solely due to his father’s recklessness. The entire family lived in Turkey for three years and was not forced to go to Europe. The father was being funded from a relative in Canada and wanted to go to Europe for dental work. The picture was also used to promote the continued Muslim invasion of Europe. How could Europeans turn away these nice people? George Soros’ master plan was working perfectly.

A year later Aleppo boy was the latest atrocity photo used to reverse public opinion against Assad and Putin, as their military success against ISIS, Al Qaeda and the U.S. supported rebels endangered the Deep State plan. As usual, the American public swallowed the propaganda, hook, line and sinker. The picture suddenly appeared and was disseminated on every mainstream media outlet in the country for days, with pontificating pundits tearfully portraying Assad as a butcher. No context, no proof he was injured by government forces, and no proof it wasn’t just a staged photo op like previous attempts. This last ditch attempt to convince the world to support a Syrian invasion also failed. This atrocity propaganda game loses its impact on a video game addicted, ADD ridden, SJW populace fairly quickly.

Private citizen Donald Trump was unequivocal in his opposition to Syrian intervention before being elevated to the presidency, as shown in these tweets:

Many Syrian ‘rebels’ are radical Jihadis. Not our friends & supporting them doesn’t serve our national interest. Stay out of Syria!

Don’t attack Syria – an attack that will bring nothing but trouble for the U.S. Focus on making our country strong and great again!

Trump’s non-interventionist rhetoric regarding Syria and unwillingness to declare Putin an evil enemy of America during the campaign resulted in an all-out assault by the Deep State to derail his candidacy, falsely claiming he was a puppet of Russia. These unsubstantiated claims and vitriolic propaganda campaign against Trump to elect Deep State candidate of choice – crooked Hillary – led to a heroic effort by the alternate media across the internet countering the mainstream media propaganda with facts and reason.

When the corporate media shills rolled out the “fake news” storyline to discredit the alternate truth telling media, it immediately blew up in their faces, as the majority of the public began to realize the fake news was being plied by CNN, MSNBC, CBS, and the rest of the captured corporate legacy media.

The discontent with the status quo among the normal people in flyover America was so great, it overcame all the Deep State propaganda, fake news, vast sums of money behind Clinton, and liberal urban strongholds, to elect Donald Trump as an agent of change who would kick the bums out of Washington. The undermining of Trump’s presidency began before he took office as the propaganda machine kicked into overdrive, with non-stop media squawking about Russia hacking the U.S. election in favor of Trump.

There were no facts, no evidence, no substance, but plenty of innuendo, plenty of unfounded accusations, and fake news reports at a fanatical level by faux journalists being paid millions to do their part. Putin as an evil manipulator, controlling Trump, was the meme flogged 24 hours a day by the Deep State to keep Trump on the defensive.

The only question at this point is whether Trump has already been co-opted by the Deep State military industrial complex or whether he is being manipulated through false flags and traditional propaganda techniques. Based on the slow progress on his domestic agenda of immigration reform, Obamacare repeal, tax cuts, infrastructure spending, and trade reform, it appears Trump decided to take the advice of neo-cons within and outside his administration and distract the masses with some new military adventurism.

The relentless pounding of the Russian hacking narrative put Trump on the defensive. As Syria and Russia were on the verge of crushing the ISIS/Al Qaeda/“moderate rebel” resistance, a new false flag was needed. As McArthur so accurately described seven decades ago, the incessant propaganda of fear is what enriches the military industrial complex.

“Our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificially induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear.” – General Douglas McArthur

In Part Three of this article I will discuss how Trump has been co-opted by the Deep State into doing their bidding with military intervention and bullying across the globe. It’s just a continuation of imperialism run rampant. Empires always decline and fall due to military overreach and economic bankruptcy. The American empire will be no different.
