Are Syria, Jordan and Israel about to revert to Turkish control

 

 

From Benjamin Fulford’s Blog

October 08, 2012

The passing by the Turkish parliament last week of a law authorizing war against Syria may be part of a secret plan to restore Middle-Eastern peace by placing Turkey in charge of the region.

This would mean putting Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel and maybe Iraq under Turkish rule as a part of a loose confederation of countries that have, for many thousands of years, been part of the same cultural tradition.

Only the Luciferian state of Israel has the military ability to stop Turkey but since it is fast losing the financial and moral support of the Jews, it would probably agree to join a loose Turkish federation rather than lose all military and financial support from outside of the region.

This would mean the Rothschild plan would blow up, and the political map of the Middle East would revert to something similar to what prevailed before they took over the Federal Reserve Board, started World War I and got the Balfour Declaration signed.

In the US, meanwhile, Pentagon and agency sources say that key leaders of the Sabbatean sect or Khazarian mob are being systematically apprehended and cut off from all communications with the outside world.

Also last week two very high level attempts to release huge dollar and yen based funds worldwide were detected and stopped by unknown parties who acted to prevent these funds from falling into the hands of the usual bunch of old world order suspects.

In general, though, heavy secret horse-trading continues around the world as the attempt to create a fascist world government collapses.

Undeniable, American Civil War, it is in the Cards

 

 

From Veterans Today

by  Gordon Duff – October 07, 2012

You hear it only in whispers.  Americans, those who used to consider themselves liberal or conservative, urban or rural, all races, religions and ethnicities are whispering.

With America’s new laws, universal wiretapping, total supervision of the Internet, networks of informants throughout the population,

there is a genuine fear, neither of invasion nor of collapse and starvation though those are seen as more than “probable.”

Americans are convinced they will, perhaps this month, this year, certainly soon, see a civil war. 

These are no longer bluster, angry words spoken in the heat of the moment. 

These are quiet words, carefully spoken behind closed doors between trusted friends.

Americans are afraid of their government, their laws, their police and they have been afraid too long.

There are groups that, for political gain, have always exploited fear, this is to be expected. 

The “neocon” movement was built from wild conspiracy theories spread by the Fox/Murdoch empire and its cabal of hidden cohorts. 

Fearful Americans voted in even more corrupt governments than usual and economic disasters were engineered, perhaps a bit of government terrorism too.

Americans were lulled into the complacency of sheep and as they awakened, a few at a time, they saw how the visions and ideals they once held had disappeared.

What they didn’t know was that this dark time and the darker times to follow would, when seen in retrospect, seem as though they were a golden era.

There is real fear in America, strangely uniting people as only hopelessness can.

While America slept, thieves came in the night and stole her soul.  First the new laws, the foreign threats, terrorism, militias, extremism, Orwell’s 1984.

Then came the endless wars, more Orwellian nightmares followed by more laws, new bureaucracies, new humiliations, the author’s nightmares of a century past, Orwell and Kafka.

America went away. 

It was replaced by “Fusion Centers” run by the Department of Homeland Security, where data on the behavior of everyone, children in school, gossip in the workplace, emails, telephone calls, all became fodder for analysis and classification.

This veteran is prone to violence, this church is a cult, this group is a militia, this meeting is a conspiracy.

This is one agency, there are 16.  This is only the “Fusion Center.”  The NSA (National Security Agency), NRO (National Reconnaissance Office) and 16 other agencies, all with undefined and overlapping powers, are spending billions on super computers to watch, to think, to predict and to, eventually, intervene.

“Capabilities” are being built to answer “threats” that have never existed and, as predicted, when the “Frankenstein monster” America has built is unleashed, it will have no duty but to turn on its unknowing creators.

Thus, every phone call, every email, every Facebook post, perhaps every glance or expression will be recorded and analyzed.

Orwell’s “Thought Police,” exist, 16 agencies full, and those are only those with Federal or national designations. 

Each state, county, each city or town, all are accumulating heavy weapons, surveillance equipment, all a duplication of the Israeli model.

The worst part is Americans have forgotten how to deal with tyranny.  Americans met the British the way the Viet Cong and Taliban have met our own troops.

This was before 15 million Americans languished in prisons. 

This was before a million police, indoctrinated, no, really “brainwashed,” fed on steroids, and human growth hormones.

Add to that sniper rifles, armoured cars and specialist gear of America’s elite special operations forces now “standard issue” for traffic police and meter maids, America has created a culture of power and oppression.

Behind the police is government, layer upon layer, each more corrupt than the last. 

Behind the police are endless prisons and jails, many privately run, all as filthy and violent as any on earth, innocent and guilty alike share one thing in common, lack of money to buy their way to freedom.

Only the poor go to jail in America. Sheriffs and police chiefs, judges and magistrates are empowered to fill the “for pay” prisons owned by corporations that finance their campaigns.

In America, sheriffs and judges are elected, nominated by the powerful, financed by those they are sworn to protect, the privileged classes, those of organized crime, the drug cartels, and, most of all, their political overlords who then serve a greater class of criminals, onward and upward until the elite bankers and moguls of world crime sit at their table and divide their spoils.

The grand criminal conspiracy tried to form their own political base. 

It was called the “Tea Party” and many fell for the message of hate and divisiveness from Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann and their masters, the Koch Brothers, those whose exist through bleeding America dry by manipulating fuel prices.

“Occupy,” a real American activist movement, the best of America, hope, ideals, intelligence, clearly recognizing the true enemy and resisting tyranny, certainly worthy but, call me a cynic, and I am certainly that, but two generations bred for complacency and, little are they aware, slaughter, too many stood by and did nothing.

Moreover, tyranny and violence came out in force, rights to free assembly and speech had long disappeared and no one had been there to notice. 

Worse still, more openly sold those rights for nothing more than the promise of security, with only those of intellect, fewer each day it seems, aware that the enemy was and is…us.

Only one police chief, from Philadelphia, stood with the Occupy NY people

As things are now, in very real “America,” rural, urban, black, white, Jews and Gentiles, there is a feeling that it is wise to be armed.

There is also a need to be organized and also a fear, knowing that no group of any kind is safe if it is legally armed, organized and openly advocating a return to real representative government and the very minimal safeguards of a constitution even fewer realize is long outdated.

It has gone further.  In regions of the United States, people live in actual terror of their government.

Knowing I am speaking to a largely international audience, such a statement may seem almost humorous. 

Imprisonment for crimes of thought or for exercising dissent are commonplace in most of the world.

America really was very different and, I can only hope, there are Americans out there who are as concerned as I am.

What has made this situation so pervasive is orchestrating of complacency, of submission, the acceptance of fear and hopelessness that pervades many.

Conversely, there is an equal and opposite culture of brutality, of indifference to human values, of feeling, of respect and honor, a disrespect for truth, for rights of the individual, a need to oppress the weak and defend the powerful

We have bred, it seems, a race of sociopaths, be they cartel “hit men” or corrupt police or guards at military prisons, perhaps even well paid contractors loading planes with narcotics to destroy the lives of our children, they are our creation.

Jim Morrison of the Doors once sang “ They’ve got the guns, we’ve got the numbers.”

Morrison died in a bathtub in Paris many years ago, I visit his grave periodically. 

The stone bust has long been removed as much as his message has been forgotten.

The balance has well changed. They have the guns and they have the numbers. 

“We”, no longer seem to exist, not a “we” that respects liberty and honor anyway.

The military, through its service academies, West Point, Annapolis and the Air Force Academy, actually purposefully endeavor to mold a race of military leaders that function more as insects than humans.

There are exceptions, but they live in the shadows and are cowed into silence.

Funny thing, our papers are filled with Syria, how their government is “repressing the revolution” with violence. 

Were Americans to rise up and demand real freedom, there is little doubt nuclear weapons would be unleashed.

Do make a note of that.

Last night was the first presidential debate, part of an election year ritual that first began in 1960, the year of the Kennedy/Nixon election.  

Great issues stood before Americans, or so most believed, racial divides, pervasive religious discrimination, rural poverty and disease, urban decay, a crumbling manufacturing base, America under Eisenhower had stagnated.

American elections are much like wars or sporting events. 

People choose teams for reasons none understand, vilify the opposition, show loyalty to the “home team,” whether a game or one of the endless wars that have sapped the economies and futures of this small planet since man first emerged, from a tree, a cave or from a scriptural paradise.

Now, it is all falling apart. 

Old divisions are no longer believable. 

Old ideals of hard work, saving for the future have proven to bring only poverty and hopelessness. 

Ideals of justice and honor, of truth, these things have become a joke.

Americans that choose religious faith find themselves guided into extremism and hatred. 

Those who choose rational problem solving, who choose to seek solutions, inevitably sink into cynicism and bitterness.

America has sought leaders to stand for the people. 

They are killed, “lone gunmen,” or plane accidents, some are imprisoned, some simply destroyed  through a deluge of laundered drug money, America’s new “currency of violence” as per the ruling of the Supreme Court of the United States in the case of Citizens United.

If a new leader arises, he or she will be of sterner stuff, merciless and cruel. 

This is also what is whispered behind closed doors.

It is my suspicion that a Romney presidency would bring it about, a war in Iran, a return to compulsory military service, elimination of universal education, massive homelessness, a nation pushed into decay as we see a “short sale” on America, a nation broken up and pedaled off wholesale, as Romney has done so many times before.

I remember my first visit to the Tower of London.  The tours have been the same for generations. 

The part that sticks, for me at least, is the idea of “hanging, drawing and quartering,” followed by placing the head of the traitor on a “pike” at the gate.

The tales of the Beefeaters at the Tower, meant to shock the American tourists no longer seem as out of place.

Will the American People Allow World War III to be Crammed Down our Throats?

 

 

From the Trenches World Report

Posted on October 8, 2012 by Rick Bronson

The mainstream propagandists making the case for another Middle East invasion to precipitate World War III kicked back into high gear again on Saturday with the reporting of a man dressed in an Afghan police uniform killing two more NATO soldiers as hundreds of Afghans take to the streets shouting, “Death to America.”

Individual protests are spanning twenty countries worldwide from Gaza to Sydney, Australia, though it is being reported that Egyptian police have cleared the protesters from the streets of Cairo.

The attacks on NATO troops in Afghanistan have now turned to so called “friendlies” shooting down US soldiers while the Taliban have launched another attack on Camp Leatherneck where Prince Harry is stationed.

Apparently there are new calls for further attacks on US Embassies. 

And then, as a side note it was mentioned that the protesters are calling for death to Israel, which marks the reality of the situation.

All of this coupled with a CIA op that facilitated Iranian’s President Ahmadinejad’s cameraman defecting to the United States, purportedly with pictures of Iran’s secret nuclear facilities, is giving every indication of a set up for war. 

Anyone who believes that Iran’s intelligence agency would allow some flunky camera man to take top secret photographs out of that country is a fool.  

Who would believe that Iranian intelligence would not know when photographs are being taken of their secret nuclear facilities and would not take possession of said photographs immediately?

King Netanyahu’s cartoon bomb campaign was a miserable failure as he was literally laughed out of our country. 

The Zionists are desperate to get World War III started before the United States economy is completely destroyed.

If you look at this most recent propaganda, coupled with the propaganda lies that are saying the US economy is getting better, the window for an attack on Iran before the truth can no longer be denied is evident. 

I think everyone had better batten down the hatches and be ready for the worst as it is the worst that these demonic parasites intend to deliver unto us.

God help us to react in a sane and rational manner.

  • Romney also enjoyed a five-point national poll swing putting him level pegging with Obama at 47% 

  • Even among Democrats, 49 percent thought Romney was the winner with only 39 percent of his own supporters saying Obama had won the day

  • Latest: Pew Research Center reported Romney taking a four-point lead among likely voters since the debate – 12-point swing from mid-September

Mitt Romney won the first presidential debate by a whopping 52-point margin according to Gallup – the most resounding margin since the polling giant began tracking debates 20 years ago.

The stunning judgement on the debate came as a bombshell Pew national poll put Romney four points ahead of President Barack Obama by 49 to 45 points – a huge swing of 12 points from mid-September, when Pew found Obama leading by 51 to 43 points.

In Gallup debate results published today, three times more people thought Romney did a better job than Obama in last week’s so-called Duel in Denver presidential debate.

The poll about the Wednesday night’s debate in Denver, watched by 67 million people, was conducted on Thursday and Friday.

Of those who watched, 72 percent thought Romney did a better job compared to 20 per cent for Obama.

Meanwhile, the respected Pew Research Center reported the most dramatic shift in a national poll during the entire general election campaign, with Romney’s fortunes improving in almost every respect.

The center reported also pulling even with Obama on 46 percent among registered voters and taking the lead by three points among likely voters.

Killers of Americans run Romney campaign, US courts and media

 

 

From PressTV

October 06, 2012 – By Kevin Barrett

‘Rabbi Dov Zakheim, who was the Pentagon comptroller at the time of the 9/11 attacks, is now top foreign policy advisor to US presidential contender Mitt Romney.’

‘Rabbi Dov Zakheim, who was the Pentagon comptroller at the time of the 9/11 attacks, is now top foreign policy advisor to US presidential contender Mitt Romney.’

In May 2011, a team of US Navy Seals allegedly killed Osama Bin Laden, then dumped a bearded body in the ocean before it could be identified.

The American people were told that the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks had been “taken out.”

Revenge had been exacted; justice had been served. Right? 

Wrong. The real perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks are still at large.

And what’s worse is that they control most of the United States Federal Court system and mainstream media, and are running the campaign of presidential candidate Mitt Romney. 

Romney’s top foreign policy advisor is Rabbi Dov Zakheim, one of the leading suspected hands-on designers and controllers of the Israeli-instigated 9/11 false-flag operation. 

On May 4th, 2001, Zakheim was appointed Comptroller of the Pentagon, where he proceeded to “lose” at least 2.3 trillion dollars – a sum amounting to more than five times the Pentagon’s annual budget. (CIA whistleblower Susan Lindauer says the actual sum is 9.1 trillion dollars.) 

On Monday, September 10th, 2001, Pentagon Chief Donald Rumsfeld announced that 2.3 trillion dollars had gone missing from the Pentagon.

The oddest thing about this announcement, besides the gargantuan sum, was its timing.

It was the first and last time that any significant political figure has ever chosen to announce major bad news on a Monday.

Reveal a scandal on Monday, and the media will have all week to “give it legs.”

Reveal it on Friday, and it will get lost over the weekend. That’s why all self-damaging revelations are aired on Fridays. 

Rumsfeld, unlike most of us, apparently knew in advance that a huge news story, even larger than the Pentagon losing five times its annual budget, would break on Tuesday, September 11th, 2001, and make everyone forget about the missing 2.3 trillion. 

So what happened to the Pentagon’s missing 2.3 trillion dollars (or 9.1 trillion dollars if you believe Susan Lindauer)?

The one thing we know for sure is that it has never been found…at least not officially.

Lindauer says insiders know it was embezzled by agents of Israel. Interestingly, the Comptroller of the Pentagon – the man who was running the Pentagon’s finances – was a known Israeli agent, Rabbi Dov Zakheim. (Yes, he really is a rabbi!) 

Conveniently for Zakheim and Rumsfeld, the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon targeted the accountants who were on the trail of the missing trillions.

According to Barbara Honegger, recently-retired Senior Military Affairs Journalist at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey  California, those accountants were killed in precise, surgical bombings carried out under cover of a nonexistent “hijacked 757 crash” at the Pentagon.

Rabbi Dov Zakheim, top advisor to Romney, did not merely help embezzle trillions of dollars from US taxpayers to pay for the 9/11 operation.

Before becoming Pentagon Comptroller, Zakheim ran System Planning Corporation (SPC), which developed a Flight Termination System or FTS. As an article on the subject states: 

“This highly sophisticated war-game technology allows the control of several ‘drones’ from a remote location, on varying frequencies, and has a range of several hundred miles. This technology can be used on many different types of aircraft, including large passenger jets.” 

Zakheim’s FTS system was apparently used to remote-hijack passenger aircraft, and stage a military attack disguised as a hijacking incident, under cover of the 46 military drills happening on and around September 11th, 2001.

(One of those drills, a live fly hijacked-plane-into-building exercise, apparently “went live,” while the others provided distractions and excuses.) 

Zakheim’s company SPC also had detailed knowledge of the blueprints and architecture of the World Trade Center.

An SPC subsidiary, Tridata Corporation, oversaw the investigation of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

The knowledge thereby gained was presumably used in the controlled demolitions of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9/11. 

Rabbi Dov Zakheim is not the only 9/11 suspect associated with Romney’s presidential campaign. Another is Sheldon Adelson, the Las Vegas mafia kingpin, who gave 100 million dollars to Romney, thereby buying Romney’s eternal enslavement to the looney-tunes Likud faction in Israel.

Adelson is reputedly linked to the same Likudnik crime mob that includes most of the key perpetrators of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center,

including “Lucky Larry” Silverstein, Frank Lowy, and Lewis Eisenberg – the mobsters who stepped forward to take the money-hemorrhaging, asbestos-ridden Twin Towers off of New York City’s hands, and set up an extralegal demolition, “urban renewal by other means,” to be blamed on Israel’s enemies. 

The mass-murderers of 9/11 are not only running Romney’s campaign, they’re also in control of the US federal courts.

The latest example: Yesterday US Federal Judge George Daniels ordered Iran and other innocent parties to pay six billion dollars in damages to the victims of the 9/11 attacks.

Why Iran, a long-time adversary of Bin Laden and the Taliban?

Because Iran is Israel’s enemy du jour, and the Likudnik 9/11 criminals own the US court system.

Daniels’ ruling is only one of a long series of US Federal Court outrages in which the innocent are blamed, and the guilty rewarded, for 9/11.

The Likud crime mob that orchestrated and carried out 9/11 owns not only the Romney campaign and the US federal courts, but most of the big US and global media as well.

It isn’t just that the people who own and run the media tend to be Jewish and pro-Zionist, as CNN’s Rick Sanchez observed shortly before he was fired.

(The well-known Jewish journalist Philip Weiss has estimates that “more than half” of the people he worked beside, and for, in the US media are Jewish, and that most of them are consciously propagandizing for Israel in their media work.) 

The problem is that only six corporations control 90% of the media in America.

And whether or not those six corporations are entirely owned by the Rothschilds, the founding family and true owners of Israel, they are obviously owned and controlled by the Zionists, as anyone who follows media coverage of the Middle East can see.

By far the single most powerful force behind the 9/11 cover-up is the complicity of big media, which have taken every available opportunity to hide the true facts of 9/11, and trumpet the genocidal myth that Muslims were responsible. 

Fortunately, the mainstream media is losing influence and going broke as internet-based alternatives steal market share.

As people learn the facts about 9/11 from internet-based alternative media, such as Press TV, VeteransToday.com, AmericanFreedomRadio.com, and NoLiesRadio.org, they increasingly see big media for what it is: pro-corporate, pro-Israeli propaganda. 

It is not surprising that Americans’ trust in big media has reached a new low according to the latest Gallup poll.

If this trend continues, a “tipping point” will eventually arrive when a sufficient number of Americans demand 9/11 justice.

When that day comes, the 9/11 criminals running Romney’s campaign, the federal courts, and the mainstream media will quickly fall from their current positions of power, and find themselves twisting slowly in the breeze. 

Let us hope and pray that that day arrives soon.

Monopolist Regulation Behind Wikiweapon 3D Printer Repossession

 

 

From The Intel Hub

By JG Vibes
theintelhub.com
October 8, 2012

Last week i wrote an article about how Defense Distributed, a new company that planned to help average people create firearms at home with 3D printers had their equipment seized by the manufacturer.

When story of the repossession hit the news, there was a great deal of confusion surrounding the legality of Defense Distributed’s Plans and the grounds by which Stratasys, the manufacturer was able to go back on their contract and snatch back the printer.

Upon further investigation it seems that Stratasys actually has no problem with their printers being used to print firearms…. well that is as long as you have jumped through all of the correct bureaucratic hoops.

Stratasys is actually currently in talks with the Knight’s Armament Company, the makers of the Remington brand and the country’s largest producer of shotguns and rifles.

A presentation by the company’s Direct Digital Manufacturing Group in January 2010 also expressed that the company’s main “selling focus will be to the Aerospace and Defense Markets,” and discussed building closer ties to the military and defense industry at various Defense Department, Army and Navy expos, including an “unmanned vehicle conference.”

Yet despite their apparent interest in firearms Stratasys has released a statement condemning Defense Distributed.

Their Statement claims that ”We believe Mr. Wilson intended to use Stratasys property to produce a weapon that is illegal according to the Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988 (a.k.a. ‘The Plastic Guns’ Law) which prohibits the manufacturing or possession of a gun undetectable by airport metal detectors.”

The statement added, “Additionally, Mr. Wilson failed to respond to the company’s request that he provide a copy of his firearms manufacturers and distributors license.”

According to Defense Distributed founder Cody Wilson he checked with the local ATF office and they told him that he didn’t even need a licence, but he is going through the process anyway just as a precautionary measure for when he starts the project back up.

Also, the concern about plastic pistols at airports is irrelevant considering firearms make it past TSA agents on a regular basis, it has even been reported that at just one airport, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International, 23 guns made it by security this year alone.

If Stratasys has no problem with corporations and the military industrial complex using their technology to create weapons then why has there been such a swift and severe reaction when Wikiweapon plans to put this power into the hands of average citizens?

The most likely answer to that question is that they are attempting to avoid the oncoming legal battle that will over the regulatory framework that will be applied to this technology.

What this regulatory framework will look like is pretty obvious, based on Stratasys actions thus far, and the regulations that already exist in the market.

Contrary to popular belief regulations are a tool by which connected corporations are able to influence government, in order to get an edge on the underdog competition that is giving them a run for their money.

Looking at this developing situation, it is easy to see how regulations favor companies like the Knight’s Armament Company, who would likely go out of business if their customers had the ability to print their own weapons from home.

This preferential treatment comes at the expense of the average consumer and society as a whole, because it actually stifles innovation and keeps prices high.

What we are seeing here is a traditional case of the candlemaker trying to prevent the discovery of electric light.

It may be true that gun control laws add whole other layer of complexity to this issue, but at its heart, this controversy is about a technology that has the ability to shake up the status quo and this battle surrounding the regulation of 3D printing will without a doubt be fought in every single industry that is affected by this invention.

If given the ability to flourish and develop in every way possible, the millions of people who end up using this technology will be able to create amazing things that could reshape this world for the better in a short amount of time.

However, as always the one thing that stands in the way of this achievement is the monopolists of the state, and their violently imposed restrictions on freely interacting individuals.

Defense Distributed founder Cody Wilson is a truly inspiring individual, and he knows exactly what is going on. 

This week he told Wired that “Stratasys made a choice, didn’t they?

They chose a side in the democratization of manufacturing by this little decision.” 

Despite this upsetting decision Cody is not giving up, he plans to carry on this project regardless of how difficult it becomes for him.
