The other face of western democracy

The other face of western democracy

Comment by Khalid Amayreh

It is really difficult to blame millions of young men and women throughout the Third World, especially in the Muslim world, for their mounting disenchantment with western democracy.

A few years ago, many people in this part of the world were made to believe that the “American way” would empower the masses and help build a society based on liberty and justice which would also eventually produce economic prosperity.

However,  these people soon discovered that they had been duped and deceived as they saw how democracy looked like “in action” in Afghanistan, Iraq, Guantanamo, and, of course, in Palestine.

The often pornographic dichotomy between the ritualistic pronouncements by western leaders on democracy and human rights, on the one hand, and their scandalous actions, behaviors, and policies, on the other, served only to deepen people’s disillusionment with a “democracy” that preaches one thing and does the opposite.

In his second inaugural address, George W. Bush, emphasized the centrality of “democracy” in his administration’s foreign policy.

“It is the policy of the United States to seek and support the growth of democratic movements and institutions in every nation and culture, with the ultimate goal of ending tyranny in our world.”

In reality, however, we all saw that instead of supporting democracy and discouraging tyranny, Bush did quite the opposite by fighting democracy and encouraging tyranny in many parts of the world.

Indeed, in most countries in the Middle East, especially the Arab world, criminal violations of human rights and civil liberties are now more pervasive than when Bush became President nearly eight years ago.

Torture is widespread and such state-of-the-art torture tactics, e.g. “water-boarding,” are being introduced to a number of Arab states under benevolent American supervision. This is in addition to the scandalous “renditions”, which became an essential part of fostering democracy in the Arab world.

Today, virtually all American-allied regimes in the Middle East are full-fledged repressive police states where citizens venturing to exercise even a modicum of their civil rights and liberties are persecuted, imprisoned and tortured or dismissed from their jobs.

In some countries, thousands of people are rounded up like cattle and placed in mass prisons in order to prevent them from taking part in local or parliamentary elections. And this is done while western democracies keep blathering about democracy and human rights.

In occupied Palestine, George Bush’s hypocrisy cries out to the seventh heaven. In 2006, Palestinians held parliamentary elections at the urging of the man in the White House. However, when the Palestinian people elected a political party which Bush and Ariel Sharon didn’t like, all hell broke loose, and the Palestinian people were subjected to a harsh blockade unseen since the disciples of Hitler besieged Ghetto Warsaw in 1943.

And when Gaza children were being starved and killed in droves, as they continue to be even as I write this commentary, the Bush administration’s reaction was voiced by its secretary of state Condoleezza Rice, that unethical and lying lady, who congratulated Tzipi Livni, the equally criminal-minded Israeli foreign minister, on the “remarkable success” of the blockade, saying “It is working, and we are glad that it is.”

But Rice is by no means inventing anything. Madeline Albright, Secretary of State during the Clinton administration, had uttered even more virulent sound-bites when asked what she thought about the estimated one million Iraqis annihilated by the US-led sanctions during the 1990s. She reportedly said rather nonchalantly that “if it is good for America, it is worth it.”

Well, I imagine that Adolph Hitler and Joseph Stalin as well as all other mass murderers, past and present, would have made the same argument to justify their crimes against humanity.

Yes, many people  in our part of the world thought, probably out of naivety,  that western democracy was ethical, moral, just and humane, but reality showed that it is often unethical, immoral, unjust, inhumane and outright criminal.

Ask the Afghan civilians whose families have been exterminated and homes destroyed by wanton western bombardment of their villages. Ask them what they think about American democracy? Ask the Iraqis whose country has been bombed out back into the Middle Ages. Ask them if they are better off now than they were under Saddam Hussein.

Ask the Palestinians whose children have to succumb to illness and disease because the “only democracy in the Middle East” wouldn’t allow them access to adequate medical care.

Ask them, and they will tell you the truth.

Of course, George Bush is by no means the only villain in the arena. Most of the “democracies” of Western Europe have played a shameful role in effecting the genocidal wars in Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan, and they all, with a few appreciable exceptions, have done so in the name of democracy and human rights.

We saw recently how the leaders of Germany, Italy, France and Britain embraced the Nazi-like Israeli state on its 60th anniversary, the state whose very existence is a crime against humanity.

Similarly, we saw how British Prime Minister Gordon Brown recently described the extirpation of the Palestinian people from its ancestral homeland and the creation thereon of the terrorist state as the “greatest event in the 20th century.”

This is the leader of the very country that had enabled Zionism to rape Palestine and expel its native inhabitants to the four corners of the world.

And at the top of all this monumental oppression, British leaders still have the moral and intellectual depravity to denounce us as “terrorists” for resisting our tormentors and wanting to be free.

Today, western democracies are busy fostering “democracy and human rights” in occupied Palestine by funding a police state apparatus where political activists are abducted and tortured and even killed, and journalists and university professors are incarcerated and maltreated by young, ignorant security cadres who would do anything for a few hundred dollars at the end of the month.

This is indeed the “democracy” that is being exported to us and which the West in coordination with Israel is trying to force down our throats.

Well, sorry guys, your democracy is killing us, we don’t want to have any part of it.

Report: Massive, warrantless raids on peace protesters in Minneapolis, ahead of RNC.

Report: Massive, warrantless raids on peace protesters in Minneapolis,

ahead of RNC.

[They have been targeted by a series of highly intimidating, sweeping police raids across the city, involving teams of 25-30 officers in riot gear, with semi-automatic weapons drawn, entering homes of those suspected of planning protests, handcuffing and forcing them to lay on the floor, while law enforcement officers searched the homes, seizing computers, journals, and political pamphlets. Last night, members of the St. Paul police department and the Ramsey County sheriff's department handcuffed, photographed and detained dozens of people meeting at a public venue to plan a demonstration, charging them with no crime other than "fire code violations," and early this morning, the Sheriff's department sent teams of officers into at least four Minneapolis area homes where suspected protesters were staying.Jane Hamsher and I were at two of those homes this morning -- one which had just been raided and one which was in the process of being raided. Each of the raided houses is known by neighbors as a "hippie house," where 5-10 college-aged individuals live in a communal setting, and everyone we spoke with said that there had never been any problems of any kind in those houses, that they were filled with "peaceful kids" who are politically active but entirely unthreatening and friendly. Posted below is the video of the scene, including various interviews, which convey a very clear sense of what is actually going on here.

In the house that had just been raided, those inside described how a team of roughly 25 officers had barged into their homes with masks and black swat gear, holding large semi-automatic rifles, and ordered them to lie on the floor, where they were handcuffed and ordered not to move. The officers refused to state why they were there and, until the very end, refused to show whether they had a search warrant. They were forced to remain on the floor for 45 minutes while the officers took away the laptops, computers, individual journals, and political materials kept in the house. One of the individuals renting the house, an 18-year-old woman, was extremely shaken as she and others described how the officers were deliberately making intimidating statements such as "Do you have Terminator ready?" as they lay on the floor in handcuffs. The 10 or so individuals in the house all said that though they found the experience very jarring, they still intended to protest against the GOP Convention, and several said that being subjected to raids of that sort made them more emboldened than ever to do so.

Massive police raids on suspected protestors in Minneapolis. Glenn's post includes videos. One of them is embedded here, below, "from the house that had just been raided."

Glenn’s Salon item also points to blog posts from the targeted protest groups, including this one from I-Witness. This group previously “videotaped police behavior at the 2004 GOP Convention in New York and helped get charges dismissed against hundreds of protesters who were arrested.” The post excerpted below was published while the police raid was happening today:

The house where I-Witness Video is staying in St. Paul has been surrounded by police. We have locked all the doors. We have been told that if we leave we will be detained. One of our people who was caught outside is being detained in handcuffs in front of the house. The police say that they are waiting to get a search warrant. More than a dozen police are wielding firearms, including one St. Paul officer with a long gun, which someone told me is an M-16. We are suffering a preemptive video arrest. For those that don’t know, I-Witness Video was remarkably successful in exposing police misconduct and outright perjury by police during the 2004 RNC. Out of 1800 arrests, at least 400 were overturned based solely on video evidence which contradicted sworn statements which were fabricated by police officers. It seems that the house arrest we are now under and the possible threat of the seizure of our computers and video cameras is a result of the 2004 success.

Title

Remote Personnel Incapacitation System


Summary Information

Objective of Phase Effort

The main goal of the Phase I project wad to design and build a breadboard prototype of a temporary personnel incapacitation system called MEDUSA (Mob Excess Deterrent Using Silent Audio). This non-lethal weapon is based on the well established microwave auditory effect (MAE). MAE results in a strong sound sensation in the human head when it is irradiated with specifically selected microwave pulses of low energy. Through the combination of pulse parameters and pulse power, it is possible to raise the auditory sensation to the “discomfort” level, deterring personnel from entering a protected perimeter or, if necessary, temporarily incapacitating particular individuals.

Summary of Results from the Phase I Effort

The major results of the Phase I effort were that – An operating frequency was chosen – Hardware requirements were established (commercial magnetron, high-voltage pulse former) – Hardware was designed and built – Power measurements were taken and the required pulse parameters confirmed – Experimental evidence of MAE was observed

Potential Applications and Benefits

Potential applications of the MEDUSA system are as a perimeter protection sensor in deterrence systems for industrial and national sites, for use in systems to assist communication with hearing impaired persons, use by law enforcement and military personnel for crowd control and asset protection. The system will: be portable, require low power, have a controllable radius of coverage, be able to switch from crowd to individual coverage, cause a temporarily incapacitating effect, have a low probability of fatality or permanent injury, cause no damage to property, and have a low probability of affecting friendly personnel.

Microwave ray gun controls crowds with noise

Microwave ray gun controls crowds with noise

David Hambling

A US company claims it is ready to build a microwave ray gun able to beam sounds directly into people’s heads.

The device – dubbed MEDUSA (Mob Excess Deterrent Using Silent Audio) – exploits the microwave audio effect, in which short microwave pulses rapidly heat tissue, causing a shockwave inside the skull that can be detected by the ears. A series of pulses can be transmitted to produce recognisable sounds.

The device is aimed for military or crowd-control applications, but may have other uses.

Lev Sadovnik of the Sierra Nevada Corporation in the US is working on the system, having started work on a US navy research contract. The navy’s report states that the effect was shown to be effective.

Scarecrow beam?

MEDUSA involves a microwave auditory effect “loud” enough to cause discomfort or even incapacitation. Sadovnik says that normal audio safety limits do not apply since the sound does not enter through the eardrums.

“The repel effect is a combination of loudness and the irritation factor,” he says. “You can’t block it out.”

Sadovnik says the device will work thanks to a new reconfigurable antenna developed by colleague Vladimir Manasson. It steers the beam electronically, making it possible to flip from a broad to a narrow beam, or aim at multiple targets simultaneously.

Sadovnik says the technology could have non-military applications. Birds seem to be highly sensitive to microwave audio, he says, so it might be used to scare away unwanted flocks.

Sadovnik has also experimented with transmitting microwave audio to people with outer ear problems that impair their normal hearing.

Brain damage risk

James Lin of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Illinois in Chicago says that MEDUSA is feasible in principle.

He has carried out his own work on the technique, and was even approached by the music industry about using microwave audio to enhance sound systems, he told New Scientist.

“But is it going to be possible at the power levels necessary?” he asks. Previous microwave audio tests involved very “quiet” sounds that were hard to hear, a high-power system would mean much more powerful – and potentially hazardous – shockwaves.

“I would worry about what other health effects it is having,” says Lin. “You might see neural damage.”

Sierra Nevada says that a demonstration version could be built in a year, with a transportable system following within 18 months. They are currently seeking funding for the work from the US Department of Defence.

MIND CONTROL WITH SILENT SOUNDS AND SUPER COMPUTERS

VOICE IN YOUR HEAD WEAPONS

MIND CONTROL WITH SILENT SOUNDS AND SUPER COMPUTERS

By Judy Wall


The mind-altering mechanism is based on a subliminal carrier technology: the Silent Sound Spread Spectrum (SSSS), sometimes called “S-quad” or “Squad”. It was developed by Dr Oliver Lowery of Norcross, Georgia, and is described in US Patent #5,159,703, “Silent Subliminal Presentation System”, dated October 27, 1992. The abstract for the patent reads:

“A silent communications system in which nonaural carriers, in the very low or very high audio-frequency range or in the adjacent ultrasonic frequency spectrum are amplitude- or frequency-modulated with the desired intelligence and propagated acoustically or vibrationally, for inducement into the brain, typically through the use of loudspeakers, earphones, or piezoelectric transducers. The modulated carriers may be transmitted directly in real time or may be conveniently recorded and stored on mechanical, magnetic, or optical media for delayed or repeated transmission to the listener.”

According to literature by Silent Sounds, Inc., it is now possible, using supercomputers, to analyse human emotional EEG patterns and replicate them, then store these “emotion signature clusters” on another computer and, at will, “silently induce and change the emotional state in a human being”.

Silent Sounds, Inc. states that it is interested only in positive emotions, but the military is not so limited. That this is a US Department of Defense project is obvious.

Edward Tilton, President of Silent Sounds, Inc., says this about S-quad in a letter dated December 13, 1996:

“All schematics, however, have been classified by the US Government and we are not allowed to reveal the exact details… … we make tapes and CDs for the German Government, even the former Soviet Union countries! All with the permission of the US State Department, of course… The system was used throughout Operation Desert Storm (Iraq) quite successfully.”

The graphic illustration, “Induced Alpha to Theta Biofeedback Cluster Movement”, which accompanies the literature, is labelled #AB 116-394-95 UNCLASSIFIED” and is an output from “the world’s most versatile and most sensitive electroencephalograph (EEG) machine”. It has a gain capability of 200,000, as compared to other EEG machines in use which have gain capability of approximately 50,000.

It is software-driven by the “fastest of computers” using a noisenulling technology similar to that used by nuclear submarines for detecting small objects underwater at extreme range.

The purpose of all this high technology is to plot and display a moving cluster of periodic brainwave signals. The illustration shows an EEG display from a single individual, taken of left and right hemispheres simultaneously. Ile readout from the two sides of the brain appear to be quite different, but in fact are the same (discounting normal leftright brain variations).

CLONING THE EMOTIONS

By using these computer-enhanced EEGs, scientists can identify and isolate the brain’s low-amplitude “emotion signature clusters”, synthesise them and store them on another computer. In other words, by studying the subtle characteristic brainwave patterns that occur when a subject experiences a particular emotion, scientists have been able to identify the concomitant brainwave pattern and can now duplicate it. “These clusters are then placed on the Silent Sound® carrier frequencies and will silently trigger the occurrence of the same basic emotion in another human being!”

SYSTEM DELIVERY AND APPLICATIONS

There is a lot more involved here than a simple subliminal sound system. There are numerous patented technologies which can be piggybacked individually or collectively onto a carrier frequency to elicit all kinds of effects.

There appear to be two methods of delivery with the system. One is direct microwave induction into the brain of the subject, limited to short-range operations. The other, as described above, utilises ordinary radio and television carrier frequencies.

Far from necessarily being used as a weapon against a person, the system does have limitless positive applications. However, the fact that the sounds are subliminal makes them virtually undetectable and possibly dangerous to the general public.

In more conventional use, the Silent Sounds Subliminal System might utilise voice commands, e.g., as an adjunct to security systems. Beneath the musical broadcast that you hear in stores and shopping malls may be a hidden message which exhorts against shoplifting. And while voice commands alone are powerful, when the subliminal presentation system carries cloned emotional signatures, the result is overwhelming.

Free-market uses for this technology are the common self-help tapes; positive affirmation, relaxation and meditation tapes; as well as methods to increase learning capabilities.

In a medical context, these systems can be used to great advantage to treat psychiatric and psychosomatic problems. As a system for remediating the profoundly deaf, it is unequalled. (Promises, promises. This is the most common positive use touted for this technology over the past 30 years. But the deaf are still deaf, and the military now has a weapon to use on unsuspecting people with perfectly normal hearing.)

OFFICIAL DENIALS

In fact, the US Government has denied or refused to comment on mindaltering weapons for years. Only last year, US News & World Report ran an article titled “Wonder Weapons”, basically a review of the new so-called ‘non-lethal’ or ‘less-than -lethal’ weapons.’ Not one word about S-quad, although the technology had been used six years earlier!

Excerpts from the article read:

“Says Charles Bernard, a former Navy weapons-research director: ‘I have yet to see one of these ray-gun things that actually works.”

“DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) has come to us every few years to see if there are ways to incapacitate the central nervous system remotely,’ Dr F. Terry Hambrecht, head of the Neural Prostheses Program at NIH, told US News, ‘but nothing has ever come of if,’ he said. ‘That is too science-fiction and far-fetched.’”

It may sound “science fiction and far-fetched” but it is not. However, that is just what the powers-that-be want you to believe, so as to leave them alone in their relentless pursuit of… what?

The idea behind non-lethal weapons is to incapacitate the enemy without actually killing them, or, in the case of riot control or hostage situations, to disable the participants without permanent injury, preferably without their knowing it. The electromagnetic mind-altering technologies would all fall into this class of weapons, but since they are all officially non-existent, who is to decide when and where they will be used?

And why should selected companies in the entertainment industry reportedly be allowed access to this technology when the very fact of its existence is denied to the general public?

As recently as last month [February], this stonewall approach of total denial or silence on the subject still held fast, even toward committees of the US Congress!

The Joint Economics Committee, chaired by Jim Saxton (R-NJ), convened on February 25, 1998 for the “Hearing on Radio Frequency Weapons and Proliferation: Potential Impact on the Economy”. Invited testimony included statements by several authorities from the military:

  • Dr Alan Kehs, of the US Army Laboratories, discussed the overall RF threat.
  • Mr James O’Bryon, Deputy Director of Operational Testing and Director of live fire testing for the Office of Secretary of Defense at the Pentagon, discussed the role of Live Fire Testing and how it plays a role in testing military equipment with RF weapons.
  • Mr David Schriner, Principal Engineer of Directed Energy Studies with Electronic Warfare Associates and recently retired as an engineer with a naval weapons testing facility, talked about the difficulty in building an RF weapon and about the terrorist threat.
  • Dr Ira Merritt, Chief of Concepts Identification and Applications Analysis Division, Advanced Technology Directorate, Missile Defense and Space Technology Center, Huntsville, Alabama, discussed the proliferation of RF weapons primarily from the former Soviet Union.

Although these statements gave information of technical interest, they are perhaps more important for the information they did not give: information on the existence of radiofrequency weapons that directly affect the human brain and nervous system.

KGB PSYCHOTRONICS

This technology did not spring up overnight. It has a long history of development and denials of development-by the US Government and probably half of the other governments of the world as well.

We know that the former Soviet Union was actively engaged in this type of research. In a previous article we reported that during the 1970s the Soviet KGB developed a Psychotronic Influence System (PIS) that was used to turn soldiers into programmable ‘human weapons’. The system employed a combination of highfrequency radiowaves and hypnosis. The PIS project was begun in response to a similar training scheme launched in the US by President Carter, according to Yuri Malin, former security adviser to USSR President Gorbachev.

In my Electromagnetic Weapons Timeline I covered a period of 60 years of interest and development in EM weaponsóinformation gathered from the many articles and news clippings sent in by readers of Resonance. In my article on synthetic telepathy I traced the development of the ‘voice in your head’ technology dating back to 1961, all my references coming from the open scientific literature.

POWER OF THE MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX

Jan Wiesemann has written an apt description of the situation which now exists in the United States, about the ‘forces that be’ and how the situation came about:

“During the Cold War the United States not only engaged in a relatively open nuclear arms race with the Soviet Union, but also engaged in a secret race developing unconventional weapons. As the intelligence agencies (which prior to the Second World War had merely played a supporting role within the government) continued to increase their power, so did the funds spent on developing techniques designed to outsmart each other.

“And as the US intelligence community began to grow, a secret culture sprang about which enabled the intelligence players to implement the various developed techniques to cleverly circumvent the democratic processes and institutions…

“Like many other democracies, the US Government is made up of two basic parts the elected constituency, i.e., the various governors, judges, congressmen and the President; and the unelected bureaucracies, as represented by the numerous federal agencies.

“In a well-balanced and correctly functioning democracy, the elected part of the government is in charge of its unelected bureaucratic part, giving the people a real voice in the agenda set by their government.

“While a significant part of the US Government no doubt follows this democratic principle, a considerable portion of the US Government operates in complete secrecy and follows its own unaccountable agenda which, unacknowledged, very often is quite different from the public agenda.”

Jan goes on to quote one of the United States’ most popular war heroes: Dwight D. Eisenhower, who served as Supreme Commander of Allied Forces during World War II and was later elected 34th President of the United States. In his farewell address to the nation in 1961, President Eisenhower said:

“…we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. Added to this, three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defence establishment. We annually spend on military security more than the net income of all United States corporations.

“This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence-economic, political, even spiritual-is felt in every city, every state house, every office of the federal government. We recognise the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military -industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or our democratic processes.”

INTERNATIONAL CONCERNS OVER NEW WEAPONS

The United Nations was established in 1945 with the aim of “saving succeeding generations from the scourge of war”. In 1975 the General Assembly considered a draft first proposed by the Soviet Union: “Prohibition of the Development and Manufacture of New Types of Weapons of Mass Destruction and New Systems of Such Weapons”.

In 1979 the Soviet Union added a list of some types of potential weapons of mass destruction:

1) Radiological weapons (using radioactive materials) which could produce harmful effects similar to those of a nuclear explosion;

2) Particle beam weapons, based on charged or neutral particles, to affect biological targets;

3) Infrasonic acoustic radiation weapons;

4) Electromagnetic weapons operating at certain radio-frequency radiations which could have injurious effects on human organs.

In response, the US and other Western nations stalled. They gave a long, convoluted reason, but the result was the same.

In an article entitled “Non-Lethal Weapons May Violate Treaties”, the author notes that the Certain Conventional Weapons Convention covers many of the non-conventional weapons; “those that utilize infrasound or electromagnetic energy (including lasers, microwave or radiofrequency radiation, or visible light pulsed at brainwave frequency) for their effects.”

Harlan Girard, Managing Director of the International Committee Against Offensive Microwave Weapons, told me he believes the strategy behind the government’s recent push for less-than-lethal weapons is a subterfuge. The ones that are now getting all the publicity are put up for scrutiny to get the public’s approval. The electromagnetic mind-altering technologies are not mentioned, but would be brought in later under the umbrella of less-than- lethal weapons.

These weapons were recently transferred from the Department of Defense over to the Department of Justice. Why? Because there are several international treaties that specifically limit or exclude weapons of this nature from being used in international warfare.

In other words, weapons that are barred from use against our country’s worst enemies (not withstanding the fact that the US did use this weapon against Iraqi troops!) can now be used against our own citizens by the local police departments against such groups as peaceful protestors of US nuclear policies.

TOWARDS GLOBAL MIND CONTROL

The secrecy involved in the development of the electromagnetic mind-altering technology reflects the tremendous power that is inherent in it. To put it bluntly, whoever controls this technology can control the minds of men-all men.

There is evidence that the US Government has plans to extend the range of this technology to envelop all peoples, all countries. This can be accomplished, is being accomplished, by utilising the nearly completed HAARP Project for overseas areas and the GWEN network now in place in the US. The US Government denies all this.

Dr Michael Persinger is a Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Laurentian University, Ontario, Canada. You have met him before in the pages of Resonance where we reported on his findings that strong electromagnetic fields can affect a person’s brain.

“Temporal lobe stimulation,” he said, “can evoke the feeling of a presence, disorientation, and perceptual irregularities. It can activate images stored in the subject’s memory, including nightmares and monsters that are normally suppressed.”

Dr Persinger wrote an article a few years ago, titled “On the Possibility of Directly Accessing Every Human Brain by Electromagnetic Induction of Fundamental Algorithms”. The abstract reads:

“Contemporary neuroscience suggests the existence of fundamental algorithms by which all sensory transduction is translated into an intrinsic, brain-specific code. Direct stimulation of these codes within the human temporal or limbic cortices by applied electromagnetic patterns may require energy levels which are within the range of both geomagnetic activity and contemporary communication networks. A process which is coupled to the narrow band of brain temperature could allow all normal human brains to be. affected by a subharmonic whose frequency range at about 10 Hz would only vary by 0. 1 Hz.”

He concludes the article with this:

“Within the last two decades a potential has emerged which was improbable, but which is now marginally feasible. This potential is the technical capability to influence directly the major portion of the approximately six billion brains of the human species, without mediation through classical sensory modalities, by generating neural information within a physical medium within which all members of the species are immersed.

“The historical emergence of such possibilities, which have ranged from gunpowder to atomic fission, have resulted in major changes in the social evolution that occurred inordinately quickly after the implementation. Reduction of the risk of the inappropriate application of these technologies requires the continued and open discussion of their realistic feasibility and implications within the scientific and public domain.”

It doesn’t get any plainer than that. And we do not have open discussion because the US Government has totally denied the existence of this technology.

Russia confirms that it seized US intelligence equipment

Russia confirms that it seized

US intelligence equipment

Wayne Madsen Report (in full) -
August 28, 2008 — Russia confirms WMR report that it seized US intelligence equipment: On August 25, 2008, WMR reported, “Russians also captured another prize, five U.S. Marine Corps Humvees that were providing signals intelligence and electronic warfare assistance to Georgian forces. Along with the Humvees and their classified equipment, the Russians also obtained important and highly-classified encryption codes used by the United States and NATO to scramble their military and diplomatic communications. U.S. intelligence sources told WMR that the Russians obtained an intelligence windfall from the capture of the Humvees.”

The Deputy Chief of the Russian General Staff Col. Gen. Anatoly Nogovitsyn told ITAR-TASS that five Humvees captured by Russian troops at the Georgian port of Poti wold have been returned to the United States if there “had there been U.S. citizens inside at the moment of detention.” The admission indicates that the United States military handed sophisticated Special Operations Forces (SOF) Intelligence Vehicles to Georgian troops, non-members of NATO, possibly compromising NATO and U.S. intelligence sources and methods to Russia.

Izvestia’s Moscow edition reported on August 27 that the Russians also seized a specialized military Landrover in Poti, along with the five Humvees. As Izvestia noted, “It’s hard to believe that Washington responded so quickly and brazenly to the loss of only six cars. Such vehicles burn by the dozen in Iraq – and the Americans don’t complain to the resistance there. But they feel differently about the jeeps in Georgia.”

However, the Russians soon realized that the six captured vehicles were not merely for transport but for intelligence gathering. Nogovitsyn stated in Moscow: “Russia is very interested in this incident. We believe the Pentagon has its reasons for worrying about the Humvees. We found a great deal of interest in the internal workings of these vehicles, and we are continuing to work on that.” Another translation of Nogovitsyn’s remarks had him stating: “It is not accidental the Pentagon is so worried about the future of its Hummers . . . We have discovered many things of interest to us inside the vehicles.”

Not only was the Pentagon concerned about the capture of the Humvees but Crawford White House spokesman Gordon Johndroe weighed in: “We’d certainly expect that the Russians would return any equipment that is U.S. equipment and return it quickly, if, in fact, they do have it.”

Izvestia also reported another curious element of the Humvee story — that some of the U.S. electronic equipment in the Humvees were manufactured under U.S. license in Odessa in Ukraine. Like Georgia, Ukraine is not a member of NATO, yet NATO-compatible sensitive military equipment is being manufactured in a non-NATO country. The Izvestia article stated: “The Georgian military not only abandoned valuable equipment, but essentially blew the lid on the U.S. security system. In Gori, Russian troops seized an American intelligence center packed with cutting-edge reconnaissance equipment. All of it is in Russia now. And the six jeeps [Humvees and Landrover] are a mobile reconnaissance and patrol complex, providing troop management in the field. According to our sources, the leading car’s equipment wasn’t the most modern at all; and most curiously of all, it is produced under license from the USA in Odessa, Ukraine.”

A Russian Defense Ministry spokesperson told Izvestia, “Another reason why the Americans are infuriated is because the Georgians have humiliated the USA in front of the whole world. The Americans trained the Georgian army for five years, arming them with the latest weapons and hardware – but the Georgians ran like rats at the first sign of action against Russian troops, abandoning all their hardware.”

Jane’s Defense reports that Georgia’s tactical intelligence left much to be desired even with their American and Israeli support. Georgia’s Israeli-supplied unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) were worthless against the Russians because Russia’s “rapid assertion of complete air superiority” prevented the use of manned and unmanned aerial reconnaissance flights. Georgia’s military intelligence assets inside South Ossetia were confined to Georgian enclaves where they could not report on Russian military movements in the rest of the region.

Georgia’s own intelligence failure means that the United States likely supplemented Georgia’s reconnaissance with satellite imagery obtainable from mobile intelligence stations such as the one the Russians captured in Gori and the Humvees taken in Poti. Georgia’s problems with handling the intelligence provided by the Americans is also hinted at by a Jane’s report: “the Georgians proved unable to effectively fuse intelligence from a range of sources in the chaotic and sometimes panicked atmosphere that followed the Russian onslaught.”

Nogovitsyn’s comment that “we have discovered many things of interest to us inside the vehicles,” may be an understatement of the intelligence windfall obtained by the Russians, which means that CIA Director Michael Hayden and Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell, both former National Security Agency (NSA) directors, have a major security compromise on their hands.

Georgia not only suffered an intelligence defeat but also a major naval disaster. Jane’s Navy International reports that Russia’s Navy destroyed at least six Georgian patrol and fast attack vessels but only after Georgian vessels attacked Russian Federation naval ships off Abkhazia. Jane’s reports: “four Georgian craft made two attempts to attack ships of the RFN’s [Russian Federation Navy] Black Sea Fleet, with the Nanuchka-class corvettes RFS Mirazh and RFS Shtyl returning fire and sinking one of the boats.” Russian ground troops later neutralized Georgian vessels in Poti, including the Greek-supplied Anninos-class fast attack craft Dioscuria, Georgia’s most capable naval ship.

One World, If You Will

One World, If You Will

By G. Asgar MithaThese US mergers, mega-mergers, vertical integration and parent-subsidiary companies have become ultra giants. Shell, Total, BP-Amoco, ExxonMobil, JP Morgan Chase, Citi Group, Dow and Dupont, among others, control oil, finance and media globally. It is like one giant octopus with a million tentacles that reaches out to every corner of the globe. The entire objective, thus remains, one world if you will. But who are these “you”? They exist in small groups, far removed from the public eye. They seek to have control over the world governments whether it is the United States, Britain, Germany, Russia, China, Zimbabwe or any other country in any of the six continents. They are the untouchables, an extremely elite group, tight lipped. These are the giants with the one world dream of a super empire. Their main weapon of control is the oil and the US dollar with G-7 servile currencies. – G. Asgar Mitha


In 2002, David Rockefeller wrote in his book Memoirs (Chapter 27, The Proud Internationalists) that “some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as internationalists and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

The banking and financial empire of J.P. Morgan Chase consists of The Chemical Bank (est.1923), Hanover Bank (est.1873), Manufacturers Trust Company (est.1905), Chase National Bank (est. 1877) that was also known as The Rockefeller Bank, J.P. Morgan & Co. (est. 1877), Bank One acquired in 2004 and Bear Stearns acquired 2008. Total assets in 2007 were nearly $1.6 trillion. What is most interesting is that the main competitor bank of J.P. Morgan Chase has been and still is Citibank (formerly First National City Bank) owned by the Stillman family. First National City Bank flourished by its association with the Rockefeller’s oil wealth from Standard Oil. The Stillmans and the Rockefellers intermarried till the off springs James Stillman Rockefeller became chairman of Citi Bank at the same time that David Rockefeller became the chairman of Chase Manhattan.

Equity trading is the buying and selling of company stocks. Bear Stearns was founded in 1923 by Joseph Bear, Robert Stearns and Harold Mayer. Bear Stearns miraculously survived the great stock market crash of 1929 and between 2005 and 2007, it was Fortune magazine’s “most admired company”. Then in March 2008, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and J.P. Morgan Chase issued loans to Bear Stearns to prevent a potential market crash resulting from the subprime mortgage hedge fund crisis. Was it a crisis or was it deliberately engineered? Hedge funds are largely unregulated, private pools of capital whose managers can buy or sell any assets.

Goldman Sachs was founded in 1869 by Marcus Goldman, a German immigrant. Later Samuel Sachs, Sidney Weinberg and Gus Levy joined this banking, investment and securities firm. Lloyd Craig Blankfein is the current CEO since May 2006 replacing Hank Paulson who went on to become the U.S. Secretary of Treasury. Similarly another very powerful private equity firm, Carlyle Group, was founded in 1987 by David Rubenstein. Carlyle Group is associated with defense, aerospace, communications, real estate and health care among others.

In 1904 Standard Oil, founded by David Rockefeller’s grandfather John D. Rockefeller, had control over 90% of oil production. Due to unfair practices and lawsuits by the States of Ohio and New Jersey, the US Department of Justice sued Standard Oil in 1909, under the Sherman Anti-trust Act. As a result, Standard Oil was broken up into over 30 companies. Two of these companies were Jersey Standard of New Jersey and Standard Oil Company of New York (SOCONY). The former later became Exxon and the latter Mobil Oil. Exxon and Mobil merged in November 1999 to become ExxonMobil. Also as a result of break-up of Standard Oil, Standard Oil of California (SOCAL) was formed in 1911. Socal, which became Chevron merged with Gulf Oil in 1984. In 1981, the Dupont group acquired Conoco but then sold all its shares in 1999 merging with Phillips Petroleum Company to become ConocoPhillips. Without going into the history, Amoco founded by Louis Blaustein in 1922, now merged with BP as Amoco-BP, had the John Rockefeller touch as Standard Oil of Indiana.

In 1980, Ted Turner launched his Cable Network News (CNN). Then in 1987 Warner Communications merged with Time Inc and in 1996 Time Warner acquired CNN. By 2000, another giant media was established, AOL-Time Warner that controlled everything from the print to TV news and entertainment. Then there is the Fox group founded by William Fox in 1915. It is a subsidiary of News Corporation whose chairman and CEO is the Australian media tycoon Rupert Murdoch. News Corp. controls films, cable, news, internet and print media. Similarly ABC, NBC, CBS and BBC share the responsibility with Time-Warner and News Corp. to feed homes with across the globe. All global news is synchronized among the networks. The affiliate stations only feed homes with local news but never international news.

These US mergers, mega-mergers, vertical integration and parent-subsidiary companies have become ultra giants. Shell, Total, BP-Amoco, ExxonMobil, JP Morgan Chase, Citi Group, Dow and Dupont, among others, control oil, finance and media globally. It is like one giant octopus with a million tentacles that reaches out to every corner of the globe. The entire objective, thus remains, one world if you will. But who are these “you”? They exist in small groups, far removed from the public eye. They seek to have control over the world governments whether it is the United States, Britain, Germany, Russia, China, Zimbabwe or any other country in any of the six continents. They are the untouchables, an extremely elite group, tight lipped. These are the giants with the one world dream of a super empire. Their main weapon of control is the oil and the US dollar with G-7 servile currencies.

Probably the one group that has recently attained some glare of publicity is the Bilderberg group. David Rockefeller Sr. may have said so in pun or he may have said so in pride that “we” are the internationalists, a secret cabal. If that is so, in pun or in seriousness, then the world has a lot to fear either way. We, in Rockefeller’s words, may well have applied to the neo-cons, collectively the Christian and Jewish Zionists and among them some Muslims Zionists like Zalmay Khalilzad, Ahmed Chalabi and Hamiz Karzai, all of whom have been well connected with western oil companies or with diehard front line neo-cons Dick Cheney, Richard Perle, Donald Rumsfeld, John Bolton, Paul Wolfowitz, Rockefellers and most notably Henry Kissinger who helped form the group. The powerful Bilderbergers who come from, mainly, several western countries, are tight lipped so there is very little speculation about what transpires in the annual meetings. Only the elite who share the one world dream are invited to attend the annual forums.

Those individuals and countries that do not accept the political and economical supremacy of the western-Israeli axis and the objectives of Zionism become targets. Through fear, intimidation, propaganda, coercion, blackmailing and fabrication of charges, regimes are toppled by covert operations or direct war. Oil, US dollar and the UN are the principal weapons of control. The Gulf war of 2003 and occupation of Iraq was not about WMDs but it was about oil and the US dollar; Saddam refused to sell oil in dollars so he had to be removed. The propaganda against Iran is not about nuclear issues but about oil and dollars as it has established a bourse on Kish. Afghanistan occupation was not about Al-Qaeda but it was about oil and dollars.

Rather than living and letting live in peace, the architects of the super empire are making the world dangerous to live in. But somewhere along the line at some point in time, some force may rise to challenge the dreams of a super empire and the empire may get hemmed in by its own lies. Every country that has expanded into an empire has contracted back into the country again. And the architects will once again fight among themselves like vultures as they did for three hundred years in the colonial era.
