Major purge of US puppets in Japan continuing behind the scenes, Nato terrorist state group being cut off

From Benjamin Fulford’s Blog

May 15,2012

The top US criminal corporate government representative in Japan, Edward Nye, will no longer be welcome in Asia following the release of new information about his links to the March 11, 2011 nuclear and tsunami terror attack on Japan.

He is believed to be the author of a February, 2000 CIA report on the Japanese energy sector that stated the following:

“In order to prevent Japanese national power from becoming any stronger and to prevent a resurgence of anti-American feeling in Japan it is necessary to put hand-cuffs on Japan’s energy sector over the long term.

Nuclear energy now accounts for 30% of Japan’s power production.

The most effective counter measure would be to neutralize the main concentration of Japanese nuclear know-how, the Tokyo Electric Power Corporation. TEPCO has Japan’s largest market capitalization and it is a leader of Japan’s corporate and financial world.

It is also very trusted by the Japanese people. To prevent Japan from becoming a nuclear power, it is necessary to destroy trust in TEPCO and drastically set back Japan’s progress in nuclear power.”

This CIA report was quoted in the November 2002 issue of Zaikai Tenbo, a leading Japanese business magazine.  

Many of the top Japanese and Korean agents working for the US corporate government in Japan have already been or are about to be purged and now all “Japan handlers,” working for the criminal corporate US mafia government are being advised to get out of Japan and never come back.

There was also a meeting last week between representatives of the committee of 300, the White Dragon Society and an Asian secret society last week to discuss the new financial system.

Chicago’s First False Flag “Barack Attack”

By Captain Eric H. May, Ghost Troop CO

Speculation continues to build that the Obama administration and its Israel Lobby handlers will use the 25th NATO Summit to carry out a false flag attack, and according to a recent Canada Free Press article, the Department of Homeland Security intends to strong-arm Americans soon.

In his provocative May 8 story, The planned re-election of Obama, revolutionary style, Doug Hagmann reports that, according to an unnamed DHS source, the federal government is preparing for widespread civil turmoil before the fall elections, which it will use as a pretext for martial law and dictatorship.

Coming shortly before the NATO Summit, Hagmann’s information resonates. It wouldn’t be the first time a principled official informed the public about looming treason, thereby saving lives.

The current Deep Throat should remind counter-false flag activists of another, whose warning to Chicago became a rallying point for diverse defenders.

Less than a month after the Obama inauguration the 9/11 Truth and Patriot movements were hoping that, under a new administration, there finally would be free speech about the abuses of King George and his Bush League, beginning with the truth about September 11, 2001.

On February 6, 2009 the newly installed president held a much-publicized meeting with 9/11 widow and “Jersey Girl” Beverly Eckert, along with dozens of USS Cole and 9/11 family members.

All had lost a spouse or parent to “terrorism,” and they asked many incisive questions, although Obama provided few decisive answers.

In the next six days, American glasnost became a short-lived reality. Senator Patrick Leahy demanded a “Truth Commission.”

As if to accentuate the fact that kerosene won’t melt or demolish steel, the Mandarin Orange Hotel in downtown Beijing burned from top to bottom for 24 hours without falling, let alone collapsing neatly into its own footprint as did the Twin Towers and WTC-7.

The gatekeeper Huffington Post, which had previously banned 9/11 “conspiracy theories,” published a two-part op-ed demanding a genuine investigation of the attacks.

Beverly Eckert met with Barack Obama on Feb 6, 2009 — and was dead six days later.

At 11:00, p.m. on Feb 12 a highly suspicious aviation disaster over New York State killed the same Beverly Eckert who had a week earlier threatened the American elite with the one thing they can never allow: the truth.

An hour later Obama’s Congress posted the Stimulus Bill online. The next day, Friday the 13th, an alarmed House of Representatives voted in favor of legislation that it didn’t have the time to read.

It was an alarming echo of the Patriot Act vote.

Many believed what Eckert and 48 other passengers had discovered the hard way: Obama could be as murderous as his tyrannical predecessor. 

Huff-Po and the rest of the limp Left immediately resumed their head-in-their-hole posture about the attacks of 2001.

The more militant wing of the 9/11 Truth Movement mobilized, fearing that the next  9/11 might be close.

It might even show that a “Nuclear Obama” could one-up a “King George” in mass murder.

Credible chatter from alarmed officials in the Chicago area convinced Ghost Troop that the new president and his Israeli chief of staff “Rahmbo” Emanuel might intend to nuke Sears Tower in the next few days.

Major Bill Fox, my executive officer, and I hurriedly published a weekend bombshell:

Chicago False Flag? Analysis and Hypothesis

An alarming report about Chicago reached me Thursday, Feb 12: Inside source reveals FEMA & DHS preparing for mass graves and martial law near Chicago.

After I listened to the brief audio part of the report, I found no reason to reject the identification of the speaker as an inside source. As for the particulars of disaster preparations, they are consistent with specific inside information I have been receiving since April/May 2006.

I will analyze the Chicago scenario more in an upcoming column. For the time being, I hope that concerned patriots will review this article and its links. Please forward it, especially to the Chicago area and its first responders.

With further networking we shall assimilate and circulate information that the mainstream media withholds or distorts.

The new Chicago information dovetails with the December 2008 article by Major William B. Fox, Chicago Cops Dodge Blagojevich/Sears Tower Investigation, about a successful effort by Internet activists to forestall a false flag attempt against the 110-story Sears Tower on May 3, 2006 (its 33rd anniversary), during NLE-06.

https://i2.wp.com/www.amfirstbooks.com/IntroPages/ToolBarTopics/Articles/Featured_Authors/may,_captain_eric/May_works.by.others/2009/Art/Theresa_Mitchell_KBOO_Presswatch_Host.jpg

            Theresa Mitchell

Over the weekend our article went viral, and on Sunday, Feb 15 Ghost Troop ally Theresa Mitchell, an astute political analyst who hosted Portland’s KBOO-FM Presswatch, wrote: “Well, I know I said it before, but I think you saved our asses (at least for a while) against a Sears Tower demolition. I have little doubt the Mossad/neocon factions are plotting Plan B.”

She had “said it before” when NLE-07, which targeted Portland for a dirty bomb attack, collapsed on October 18, 2007.

That harrowing day began with an amazed Mitchell broadcasting It pays to monitor terror exercises about a timely Ghost Troop alert to Southeast Texas, which had anticipated a Dow Chemical explosion that morning by four hours.

The day nearly ended with a bang as Homeland Security Director Michael Chertoff arrived: Bomb scare disrupts terrorism drill.

Rumors circulated that Portland police officers had joined the counter-false flag effort, which would explain why they shut down the exercise.

As later events would demonstrate, Mitchell was right about the effectiveness of the Ghost Troop public affairs mission in Chicago.

Operating in tandem with Internet activists, starting with those who provided and distributed the insider information, we led a successful cyber campaign.

When Obama signed the Stimulus Bill into law on Tuesday, Feb 17, it was supposed to be the highlight of his first year.

He was treated as an abject failure, though, and for no small cause: He had botched the false flag operation against the Windy City, which explains why administration officials immediately began to say that it might take another stimulus program to finish the job:

Signing Stimulus, Obama Doesn’t Rule Out More

DENVER — President Obama has not ruled out a second stimulus package, his press secretary, Robert Gibbs, said on Tuesday, just before Mr. Obama signed his $787 billion recovery package into law with a statement that it would “set our economy on a firmer foundation.”

https://danimartextras.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/newyorkpost.jpg?w=300

Just hours later, Yahoo! delivered a powerful kick in the pants to Barack, described but not explained in ‘Obama bin Laden’ Error Hits Yahoo’s Homepage. The morning after a bizarre NY Post editorial cartoon of appeared, linking the Stimulus Bill to a dead chimpanzee, whom some wits began to refer to as “Obonzo.” The none-too-subtle message was:

“Boy, you’re nothing more than our chimp, and if you can’t do what we hired you to do, we’ll get rid of you and find another just like you.”

I challenge any media critics to give a more plausible explanation of this none-too-subtle racist threat by a Ruppert Murdoch paper against a new “savior” president in his honeymoon phase with the media.

The worst-case scenario is all-too-often the truth, and such is the case with Barack Obama.

The powers that be selected him to be president because they believed that he was capable of carrying out mass murder for hire, and their payment was the Stimulus Bill.

This means that patriots who ask whether he would try to attack Chicago aren’t asking the right question, which should be whether he will try to attack Chicago AGAIN.

In December 2008, before Obama’s inauguration, Dr. Jim Fetzer, Major Bill Fox and I coauthored “Black Bush” Barack? False Flag Frankenstein?, which was read with outrage by many, some of whom demanded an apology.

Considering the way things have turned out, I’m quite ready to apologize.

I’m sorry for the article’s title, with its unnecessary quotation and question marks, and to atone for my mistake have renamed the Veterans Today edition more appropriately as Black Bush Barack: False Flag Frankenstein.

I extend my gratitude to my friend Abu Salem sofyan, Publisher of  Islamic Intelligence, for his invaluable help with research.

700 National Guard Homeland Response Force Troops Set to Train in New York

 

From The Intel Hub

May 14, 2012

Seven hundred National Guard Troops from the Northeast and Caribbean are set to conduct disaster preparedness training in central New York this week.

According to the Associated Press, the troops will train for certification as a regional response force in the event of a chemical, biological, nuclear, or high explosive incident.

In an article published on Infowars.com, Kurt Nimmo outlined the history of the National Guard Homeland Response Force and policy directives signed by Obama.

In February, it was reported that FEMA plans to move National Guard troops from one FEMA district to another during natural disasters and other emergencies. FEMA administrator Craig Fugate made the announcement after Obama signed Presidential Policy Directive 8 on March 30, 2011.

“PPD-8 reflects the Obama Administration’s belief that the whole community – including all levels of government, the private and nonprofit sectors, and individual citizens – plays a key role in preparedness efforts,” the National Guard website reported.

PPD-8 allows FEMA to “facilitate an integrated, all-of-nation/whole community, capabilities-based approach to preparedness” that involves “federal partners, state, local and tribal leaders, the private sector, non-governmental organizations, faith based and community organizations ─ and most importantly the general public” in the effort, according to the FEMA website.

“HRFs will increase the focus of DoD Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and High explosive (CBRNE) Consequence Management Response forces on life-saving objectives and increase operational flexibility while recognizing the primary role that the governors play in controlling the response to CBRNE incidents that occur in their states,” a DoD PDF explains.

This set of National Guard preparedness drills correlates with a long line of Pentagon and Homeland Security related exercises in relation to some sort of major attack on U.S. soil.

It also further shows the integration of federal, state, and local authorities under the auspice of homeland security and national security.

Docs Show White House, DHS, Pentagon Behind Occupy Crackdown To Protect Banks

 

From Alexander Higgins Blog

Docs Show White House, DHS, Pentagon Behind Occupy Crackdown

Documents show the White House, DHS, and the Pentagon coordinating and orchestrating the Occupy Wall Street crackdown while attempting to cover their tracks.

Docs Show White House, DHS And Pentagon Behind Occupy Crackdown In Bid To Protect Banks

As more and more information is released on the nationwide crackdown on the Occupy Protests, the latest documents show that not only did US anti-terrorism units worked alongside Wall Street’s secret spy centers to coordinate a campaign to crush the movement but the White House and Democrats joined in protecting the elite’s campaign of financial terrorism from the rage of protestors.

The revelations come through new documents obtained through Freedom of Information Request’s filed by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF) on behalf of filmmaker Michael Moore and the National Lawyers Guild.

As I previously reported, documents which only being to scratch the surface of the crackdown, show anti-terrorism agencies coordinating the crackdown.

Docs Reveal Feds’ Counter Terrorism Agents Coordinated Brutal Occupy Crackdown

Docs Reveal Federal Terrorism Officials Coordinate Brutal Occupy Crackdown

Newly-Released Documents Confirm that the Counter Terrorism Officials From the Department of Homeland Security and Other Federal Agencies Coordinated Violent Crackdown on Protesters.

Just released documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act provide definitive proof that anti-terrorism law enforcement officers from several agencies are coordinating with the US Park Police and local police to direct the brutal crackdown on Occupy Wall Street protestors nationwide.

Washington’s Blog highlights some of the revelations.

We’ve previously reported that the Feds have coordinated the brutal crackdown on the Occupy protests.

Friday, the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund received documents in response to Freedom of Information Act demands proving that:

  • The private corporate entity Brookfield Properties, which manages Zuccotti Park, had its security agency in communication with cities across the country about police actions designed to evict the Occupy movement and sought information as to Park Police plans to evict in D.C. 48 hours before OWS was evicted.

  • U.S. Park Police were communicating step by step, as they took action in regard to Occupy DC, with the Secret Service, DHS, and other police agencies as well as personnel affiliated with LEO.gov, the FBI’s nationally integrated network and alert system involving all aspects of civilian law enforcement, intelligence agencies and the military. 

    As its website states, “LEO supports the FBI’s ten priorities by providing cost-effective, time-critical national alerts and information sharing to public safety, law enforcement, antiterrorism and intelligence agencies in support of the Global War on Terrorism.”

The documents include emails between the Park Service and Department of Homeland Security which are hostile to the First Amendment, such as:

 Confirmed: Feds Coordinating Brutal Crackdown on Occupy Protests

Given that the government considers just about every action to be cause to label average people potential terrorists (and see this) – and that the Department of Homeland Security has just placed an order for 450 million rounds of .40 caliber hollow point ammunition – the involvement of the Feds is not very pleasant.

Source:Washington’s Blog

As pointed out by Washington’s Blog, page 13 provides insight on the agencies are coordinating the crackdown as identified by email addresses of the corresponding departments of the Federal Government.

But you don’t even have to go that far because several of the documents reveal the involvement of federal counter terrorism officers.


Docs Reveal Federal Terrorism Officials Coordinated Brutal Occupy Crackdown

 

The only confirms reports that the federal government is not coordinating a campaign to crush the constitutional rights of citizens but they are following in the footsteps of the UK by classifying and treating peaceful American citizens as terrorists.

Now Counter Punch reports on the latest round of documents obtained by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF) revealing the collusion of the White House and Democrats with the terrorism agencies to crackdown on the protests and the movement.

Did the White House Direct the Police Crackdown on Occupy?

Documents Show How White House and Democrats Worked to Protect the Banks Against Protests

A new trove of heavily redacted documents provided by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF) on behalf of filmmaker Michael Moore and the National Lawyers Guild makes it increasingly evident that there was and is a nationally coordinated campaign to disrupt and crush the Occupy Movement.

The new documents, which PCJF National Director Mara Verheyden-Hilliard insists “are likely only a subset of responsive materials,” in the possession of federal law enforcement agencies, only “scratch the surface of a mass intelligence network including Fusion Centers, saturated with ‘anti-terrorism’ funding, that mobilizes thousands of local and federal officers and agents to investigate and monitor the social justice movement.”

Nonetheless, blacked-out and limited though they are, she says they offer clues to the extent of the government’s concern about and focus on the wave of occupations that spread across the country beginning with last September’s Occupy Wall Street action in New York City.

The latest documents, reveal “intense involvement” by the DHS’s so-called National Operations Center (NOC)

 In its own literature, the DHS describes the NOC as “the primary national-level hub for domestic situational awareness, common operational picture, information fusion, information sharing, communications, and coordination pertaining to the prevention of terrorist attacks and domestic incident management.”

The DHS says that the NOC is “the primary conduit for the White House Situation Room” and that it also “facilitates information sharing and operational coordination with other federal, state, local, tribal, non-governmental operation centers and the private sector.”

A better description for a fascist police state network could not be written.

Remember, this vast yet centralized operation — what Verheyden-Hilliard describes as “a vast, tentacled, national intelligence and domestic spying network that the U.S. government operates against its own people” — was in this case deployed not against some terrorist organization or even mob or drug cartel, but rather against a loose-knit band of protesters, all conscientiously and publicly committed to nonviolence, who were exercising their Constitutionally-protected right to gather in public places and to speak out against the crimes and abuses of the corporate elite and the politicians who are bought and paid by that elite.

Among the documents obtained by the PCJF in this second batch of responses to its FOIA filing is one from the NOC Fusion Center Desk dated Nov. 5, 2011, which collects at the federal level and then distributes the names and contact information of a group of Occupy protesters who were arrested during a demonstration in Dallas, TX against Bank of America, one of the nation’s biggest predatory lenders.  

Although none of the seven arrested were charged with any serious crime (six were charged with “using the sidewalk!”), their names and contact information were widely disseminated by the DHS.

Fusion Centers, a post-9-11 creation, are a federally-funded joint project of the DHS and the US Justice Department which are designed to share intelligence information among such federal agencies as the DHS, the FBI, the CIA and the US Military, as well as state and local police agencies.

By their nature they are designed to circumvent legal constraints on various agencies, for example the ban on CIA domestic spying, or the Posse Comitatus Act, which bars active military activity within the borders of the US. There are currently 72 Fusion Centers around the US.

Another group of documents shows that on November 9, two days after a demonstration by 1000 Occupy activists in Chicago protesting social service cuts in that city, the NOC Fusion Desk relayed a request from Chicago Police asking other local police agencies what kind of tactics they were using against Occupy activists.

They specifically requested that information be sought from police departments in New York, Oakland, Atlanta, Washington, D.C. Denver, Boston, Portland OR, and Seattle — all the scene of major Occupation actions and of violent police repression.

Realizing that it would look bad if it assisted in such coordination overtly, higher officials in the DHS ordered the recall of the request but then simply rerouted it through “law enforcement channels,” where presumably it would be harder for anyone to spot a federal role in the coordination of local police responses.

In response to that order, the documents show that the duty director of the NOC wrote that he would “reach out” to “LEO LNOs (liaison officer) on the floor” to assist.

Verheyden-Hilliard explains that LEO is FBI’s nationally integrated law enforcement, intelligence and military network.

On December 12, when Occupy planned anti-war protests at various US ports, Verheyden-Hilliard says the new documents show that the NOC “went into high gear” seeking information from local field offices of the Department of Homeland Security about what actions police in Houston, Portland, Oakland, Seattle, San Diego, and Los Angeles planned to deal with Occupy movement actions.

Another document shows that earlier, in advance of a planned Occupy action at the Oakland, CA port facility on Nov. 2, DHS “went so far as to keep the Pentagon’s Northcom (Northern Command) in the intelligence loop.”

Given the subterfuge revealed in these documents that went into trying to create the illusion that the DHS was and is not coordinating a national campaign of spying, disruption and repression against Occupy activists, it is almost comical to find documents that show the DHS was in “direct communication with the White House” to obtain advance approval of public statements by DHS officials denying any DHS involvement in anti-Occupy actions.

These documents show that both DHS and one of that department’s police arms, the Federal Protective Service (FPS) were in direct contact with Portland, Oregon’s police chief and mayor, discussing how to deal with protesters who were in part on federal property. The coordination between the feds and the local police and political authorities were intense.

Yet the approved statement sent to DHS from the White House read:

Any decisions on how to handle specifics (sic) situations are dealt with by local authorities in that location.

If a protest area is located on Federal property and has been deemed unsanitary or unsafe by the General Services Administration (GSA) or city officials, and they make a decision to evacuate participants — the Federal Protective Service (FPS) will work with those officials to develop a plan to ensure the security and safety of everyone involved.

There was, comically, also a White House-approved DHS “background” statement, too! (Typically background statements by federal officials are supposed to be used when they want to tell a journalist the true situation but don’t want to have that statement attributed to them or their department. Having it pre-approved by the White House defeats that purpose and is simply a manipulation of the media.)

The faux “background” information included the following–a flat-out lie:

DHS is not actively coordinating with local law enforcement agencies and/or city governments concerning the evictions of Occupy encampments writ large.

Tellingly, the documents also include a Dec. 5 copy of the “Weekly Informant, ” an intelligence report published by the DHS’s Office for State and Local Law Enforcement.

The issue includes an update from the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) concerning the activities of the Occupy Movement.

PERF, Verheyden-Hilliard notes, is the group that the federal government claims organized a series of multi-city law enforcement calls to coordinate the police response to Occupy, which led immediately to the wave of violent crackdowns.

It was at those meetings that police were advised among other things to act at night, to use aggressive tactics and weapons like tasers and pepper spray, and to take steps to remove journalists and cameras from the scene of crackdowns.

The overall sense from these latest documents is that Washington and the DHS, along with the FBI, was the nexus of the crackdown, orchestrating it, encouraging it, and attempting to cover its tracks.

The documents among other things expose the massive hypocrisy of the Obama administration and the Democratic Party, which this election year have tried to co-opt and claim as their own the anti-fat-cat theme of the “We are the 99%”-chanting Occupiers, while actually acting in the interest of Bank of America and its fellow financial sector mega-firms in trying to crush the movement itself.

Family of 18-month-old toddler who was kicked off JetBlue flight for being on no-fly list outraged airline STILL hasn’t apologised

 

From MailOnline

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER

May 12, 2012

The family of an 18-month-old girl who was pulled off a flight because airline employees thought her name was on the U.S. no-fly list are outraged because they have yet to receive a personal apology from the airline.

The parents, who do not wish to be identified, said they were left ‘humiliated’ after they were ordered off a JetBlue flight because airline staff thought their toddler, Riyanna, was a terror suspect.

Family spokesman Rick Abbot said that the family is still waiting for an explanation from the airline which blamed the problem on a computer glitch.

'Threat': Airline staff at Fort Lauderdale Airport in Flordia claimed 18-month-old Riyanna was on a Transport Security Agency no fly list and was escorted off the plane, her parents said

Adorable: The family said through a spokesperson it is outraged the airline has yet to deliver a personal apology

  

Mr Abbot told the New York Post: ‘This family hasn’t even gotten an apology. Nothing. JetBlue didn’t even call to say they’re looking into it.

‘JetBlue issued an apology to the media, but what kind of apology is that?

‘The issue is, how the hell did this happen? How did it happen and why? Is the system really that easily manipulated? It’s crazy.’

The incident unfolded after a JetBlue employee boarded the Newark, New Jersey-bound flight before it departed on Tuesday evening, approached the family and said officers from the Transport Security Agency at the Fort Lauderdale Airport wished to speak with them.

Ordeal: The parents were told they could re-board the JetBlue plane, but they refused as they were too humiliated. They said they did not receive an apology or an explanation

The girl’s mother told WPBF she asked ‘For what?’ and the employee said: ‘It’s not you or your husband. Your daughter was flagged as no fly.’

Her husband added: ‘It made no sense. Why would an 18-month-old child be on a no-fly list?’

After they left the plane, the family met with TSA agents and were made to stand in the terminal for half an hour, they said.

Riyanna’s father added: ‘We were put on display like a circus act because my wife wears a hijab.’

The couple were told they could re-board the plane, but were not offered an apology or explanation, they told WPBF.

But they refused to re-board the plane as they felt humiliated, they said.

JetBlue says employees were following proper protocol. The U.S. Transportation Security Administration says the girl never was flagged by the agency.

Scene: The embarrassing ordeal occurred at Fort Lauderdale Aiport in Florida, pictured. The TSA said it was an airline issue and they would not be investigating

TSA added that since Riyanna and her parents were issued boarding passes, they must have been cleared by the TSA and were not on the no-fly list.

The parents believe they were stopped as they are both of Middle Eastern descent. Riyanna’s mother wears a head scarf. Both were born in the United States and raised in New Jersey.

It is just the latest example of questionable security and search methods used at the nation’s airports.

Just two weeks ago, a Long Island family missed their flight from John F. Kennedy Airport to Florida after a TSA agent searched their disabled seven-year-old daughter, who suffers from cerebral palsy.

Dina Frank could not walk through the metal detectors because of her crutches and orthotics, and was instead subjected to a pat down by security agents – a severely traumatic event for the girl.

‘She’s not a threat to national security,’ the outraged father told The Daily.

Just days later, passengers at Newark Airport were delayed for hours when the Port Authority evacuated a terminal because of an unscreened infant.

The TSA said that the parents of the infant passed the child back and forth through the metal detector, causing alarms go off.

When TSA agents realised that the baby got away without an individual screening, they started a desperate search for the family to no avail. When they could not find them, they evacuated the entire terminal.

And just weeks before, TSA agents were accused of subjecting a boy in a wheelchair to an invasive body search.

His parents were not allowed to be near him as agents at O’Hare Airport in Chicago swabbed the boy for explosive residue in a security check.
