Petraeus Kills His Own



Thanks for telling me it was a good day until I briefed you. [General Petraeus]—You are only interested in your career and provide no support to your staff—no msn [mission] support and you don’t care. 

I cannot support a msn that leads to corruption, human right abuses and liars. I am sullied—no more. I didn’t volunteer to support corrupt, money grubbing contractors, nor work for commanders only interested in themselves. 

I came to serve honorably and feel dishonored. I trust no Iraqi. I cannot live this way. 

All my love to my family, my wife and my precious children. I love you and trust you only. Death before being dishonored any more. 

Trust is essential—I don’t know who trust anymore. [sic] Why serve when you cannot accomplish the mission, when you no longer believe in the cause, when your every effort and breath to succeed meets with lies, lack of support, and selfishness? 

No more. 

Reevaluate yourselves, cdrs [commanders]. You are not what you think you are and I know it.

COL Ted Westhusing

Life needs trust. Trust is no more for me here in Iraq.






Two years before Westhusing left for Baghdad, he had finished his doctoral dissertation in philosophy at Emory University in Atlanta. The focus was on honor and the ethics of war. Westhusing wanted to understand arete—the ancient Greek word meaning virtue, skill, and excellence. His quest for understanding the concept was, he believed, a central part of his existence. “Born to be a warrior, I desire these answers not just for philosophical reasons, but for self-knowledge,” he wrote.



Westhusing did not find excellence or virtue in Iraq.




When he was in Iraq, Westhusing worked for one of the most famous generals in the U.S. military, David Petraeus. In January, Petraeus was appointed by President Bush to lead all U.S. forces in Iraq. As the head of counterterrorism and special operations under Petraeus, Westhusing oversaw the single most important task facing the U.S. military in Iraq then and now: training the Iraqi security forces.

Petraeus was impressed with Westhusing. By 2005, Petraeus had become a darling of the U.S. media thanks, in part, to his success in helping stabilize and rebuild northern Iraq. Petraeus liked what he saw in Westhusing and promoted him from lieutenant colonel to full colonel. In a March 2005 e-mail, Petraeus told Westhusing that he had “already exceeded the very lofty expectations that all had for you.”

It appears that shortly after writing the note, at about 1 p.m. Baghdad time, Westhusing took the 9 mm Beretta automatic pistol he’d been issued at Fort Benning five months earlier, placed it behind his left ear, and pulled the trigger.

After Westhusing’s death, there was a great deal of speculation. 

Some family members and friends began wondering if he had been murdered.

Westhusing was supposed to leave for the U.S. on July 7. Yet he killed himself on June 5. 

Why, they asked, couldn’t he stick it out for just one more month?

Much of the speculation focused on USIS and the contractors. 

Did Westhusing have evidence that the contractors wanted to keep quiet?

There were conflicting stories from the contractors about how they discovered Westhusing’s body. One manager said that the first time he went to find Westhusing after lunch on June 5, the door to Westhusing’s room was locked. 

But on a second visit, he said, he found the door unlocked. Further, one of the first people to find Westhusing in his room, a military contractor, moved Westhusing’s pistol from its original position, claiming he had done so for safety reasons. 

That person was never checked for gunpowder residue.



The Most Important Suicide Note You May Ever Read - Col. Ted Westhusing, June 5th, 2005



The big news at this year’s Bilderberg meeting is the arrival of General David Petraeus, who was forced out last November as head of the US Central Intelligence Agency under circumstances which strongly suggested that he had taken part in a Seven Days in May scenario, joining with a shadowy cabal of generals, admirals, politicians, pollsters and defense contractors to oust Obama from the White House regardless of the actual vote count last November, and to install a permanent dictatorship of war and austerity under the figurehead of the Wall Street financier Willard Mitt Romney.

The best-known public manifestation of that effort has so far been the Benghazi incident of September 11, 2012, an orchestrated pre-election provocation (or “October surprise”) intended to put the Obama campaign on the defensive.




From the Bush-Clinton transition, January 1993.

Romney and Rove's October Surprise Redux: The Smoking Gun from Paul Coker on Vimeo.

Hillary Clinton went on National Television to blame internet video "The Innocence of Muslims" for triggering a spontaneous protest in Libya which killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others.

Because that's the CIA told her had happened.

That's NOT what they told the Romney/Ryan Campaign - they told THEM it was an Act of Terror.


At 10:08 EST, footage of the raid on the Benghazi compound shot (and EDITED) by the attackers themselves had already begun airing on CNN on Anderson Cooper's AC360 9/11 Special.

physcial tape of the (first) attack, edited on an offline editing suite had been handed to CNN and was broadcast live on CNN within 5 hrs of the shooting starting - Al-Jazeera did not recieve a copy.

At 10:08 EST (4:08am in Libya), CIA Officers Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were still alive.

The CIA sponsored ,militia had just (miraculously) located the super-top secret CIA Secruity Annex and unleashed a SECOND, murderous assault, with the clear intent to leave no-one left alive, only withdrawing when friendly Libyan Miilitias loyal to the Government arrived to chase off the CIA Contra under the Command of Director Petreaus in Langley,

David Petreaus tried to murder him own people at Benghazi.


 
The Benghazi Muggers in Their Own Words (Now with Partial Arabic Translation) from Paul Cokeron Vimeo.
The following was written by the original YouTube user who had the (partial) translation done, and I cannot vouch for it, although I do intend to seek out my own translater for the Mahgrebi Arabic being spoken by the frightened looking men with AK's cowering in fear of the one, batsh*t crazy Arab speaking with a Gulf Arabic dialect and accent, because even to Anglophone easrs, the two are really distinct and he's clearly the only out of town "terrorist" taking part in this glorified mugging.

Just one "terrorist", shooter with an asault weapon and home made flash-bangs.

Damn - that's only about 1/6 as many "terrorist" shooters with assault weapons as we involved in carrying out Columbine.... And they had way better pipe bombs, to boot.

Surely it can't just be because he's brown he's classed as a "terrorist" by The White Man in America, now could it...?

"As I listened to the terrorists speaking in loud voices and at times yelling, I wondered where the American Diplomatic Security Special Agents were? 


Perhaps the nine foot block walls cut out the noise or maybe the terrorists were not even at the U.S. Consulate compound 

(as it turns out, they were right outside the compound). 

I thought surely the CIA looked at this video and immediately had it translated and examined to learn what was said and to determine where the terrorists were having their little talk. 

I thought surely all of the major TV networks and of course the NY Times have reporters who have heard this audio.

Surely they all must know what is being said

So where is the translation?

After searching for a certified Arabic translator for three weeks, I finally found one who agreed to translate this video into English.

Unfortunately, once he actually saw and listened to the video he became very distressed. He said that these "people" do not truly represent Islam. After listening patiently to a 1½ hour history lesson on Islam and reading parts of an English translation of the Koran with him, I agreed the terrorists did not represent Islam.

Actually I agreed with him immediately, but he didn't believe me I guess [ GEE, I CAN'T IMAGINE WHY...] —because he kept going. I listened patiently as he proved the terrorists did not represent Islam.

Anyway he finally watched and listened to this short video clip for about an hour.

In the end, he was clearly too stressed to share the translation of everything he heard and he implied that the terrorists were speaking in two different Arabic dialects, Libyan (Maghrebi), which he understood, and another one which he could not understand very well.

So I have concluded that I need another Arabic speaking translator for the parts my translator could not understand or refused to translate for me.

If anyone wants to help, please let me know what you hear in the comments section.

Now as to what my certified translator did translate for me. First he concluded that the terrorists did not seem to have a clear leader. Words and phrase that he could clearly understand are as follows: 



00:00-00:05 Announcer: "We are now showing you the first pictures of the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi."
 


00:21 "I swear to God you did your best."

00:22 "Listen to me."

00:22 "Take pictures, take pictures." 

00:23-24 "Keep it moving."

00:30 "Listen to me."

00:31 "We did something, no need to waste time talking. We can move forward."

00:32 "I'll stay with you and what I am feeling is the same as you."

00:33 "The American."

00:40--00:41 "You do not know what's going on." 


Note: Here the terrorist may be speaking to the young man in the navy *blue* vest. 

I have concluded that he is a frightened *Blue* Mountain security guard who was lucky to escape with his life. 
00:56—00:58 "Try from other (spot, place, side, or direction.)"


 
01:01 "Trying from other direction."

01:11 "Blood." 

01:13 "Blood."

The remaining statements are untimed. My translator said he had another appointment so I did not get to nail down the times and we did not get through timing the video past 1 minute 13 seconds.

Unknown times:

"Keep using the camera to take pictures."

"Need to show what we can do to America."

"Say or remember God."

"Young men, listen to me."

"The window toward the yard."

"Let them bleed." "


The Benghazi incident occurred in the area of command responsibility of General Petraeus as CIA Director, and of General Carter Ham, head of the US Africa Command.

...for if it 
prospered, none dare call it Treason...."


Both of these officers, along with Afghanistan commander General Allen, NATO commander Admiral Stavridis, and a dozen or more others of flag rank were ousted for various official reasons in a post election purge.



But there is good reason to conclude that the United States had narrowly escaped what might be called a veiled military coup d’état.

Petraeus: An Important Article by Webster G. Tarpley








Britain, France prodding Obama into attacking Syria

by Webster G. Tarpley

Syrian forces clash with foreign-backed militants in the western town of Qusayr, Homs Province. (File photo)
Syrian forces clash with foreign-backed militants in the western town of Qusayr, Homs Province. (File photo)

On the eve of this year’s Bilderberg meeting, the Anglo-French intelligence bosses have clearly shown their hand with two high-profile attacks on Obama. Wednesday, June 5 marked the liberation of Qusayr, the great Stalingrad of the Syrian terrorist death squads deployed by NATO against Assad. With the rout of these terrorists, the main units of the self-styled Free Syrian Army, along with the Nusra branch of al Qaeda, are likely to face annihilation in the short to medium term.


On the same day that Qusayr fell, the British and French governments hysterically demanded that Obama undertake a total bombing campaign against Syria, whatever the consequences in regard to Russia and other powers. To his credit, Obama is continuing to say no to this lunatic Anglo-French neocolonial adventure. 

On that same June 5, the London-based daily The Guardian, in an article by the expatriate American Glenn Greenwald, hyped a court order from the secret FISA panel of federal judges showing that the US National Security Agency was routinely monitoring the telephone records (including time, locations, call duration, and unique identifiers, but not the contents of the conversations) of possibly unlimited millions of Verizon phone subscribers. Back in the US, reactionary talk show hosts began screaming 

“Obama taps your phones!”

On June 6, again in advance of every other newspaper in the world, The Guardian published another article by Glenn Greenwald and Ewen MacAskill revealing that the National Security Agency, under a program called Prism, had obtained direct access to the servers of Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Apple, Youtube, Skype, AOL, and Microsoft, and was busily monitoring the content of e-mails, file transfers, and live conversations. Back in the US, reactionary talk show hosts began screaming, 

“Obama reads your e-mail!”

Under George Bush, warrantless wiretaps and similar illegal programs were revealed by various media organs. These revelations had minimal impact on Bush, whose base was indifferent to civil liberties. 

Obama’s base, by contrast, cares very much, and has been visibly upset by these new reports. 

While strongly condemning these totalitarian programs, we must also not lose sight of who is putting these reports into circulation, and why. 

Phone taps are bad, but a general war in the Middle East leading to a possible Third World War is far worse.

The British and French defense and intelligence establishment (they have virtually merged) want Obama and the American people to take the lead and shoulder the risk in a perilous attack on Syria, in time to preserve the death squads so they can fight another day in another country. 

London and Paris, of course, see themselves as the principal beneficiaries of the breakup of Syria. 

Since Obama is currently blocking their plans, they are bringing up their big guns of scandal, with the center-leftGuardian evidently chosen to take the point, doubtless to obtain more attention among Obama’s leftist supporters. 

(During the initial Clinton scandals of Whitewatergate and Troopergate, the flagship of scandal was the reactionary London-based Daily Telegraph, especially through its columnists Peregrine Worthshorne and Ambrose Evans-Pritchard.)

Coming as they do on the eve of the yearly Bilderberg conference, these scandals stamped Made in England suggest that the majority of this elitist cabal have maintained their anti-Obama line already evident in last year’s meeting, and are using the current gathering to further their plans.

From Lady Astor’s Cliveden Set to the Bilderbergs

This year’s Bilderberg conference is beginning today at the Grove Hotel in the town of Watford, England, not far from Heathrow Airport. Up to 150 announced and unannounced members of the transatlantic financier oligarchy and their retainers are expected to attend. 

Watford is only 15 miles away from Cliveden, infamous as the country home of Lady Nancy Astor, where some 75 years ago a clique of fascist “cagoulords” including Lord Waldorf Astor, Lord Vincent Astor, Lord Brand, Lord Lothian, Lord Halifax, Geoffrey Dawson of the London Times, and Sir Neville Chamberlain schemed with the likes of Joachim von Ribbentrop to build up Hitler and then play him against Stalin in an apocalyptic world war that somehow went awry. 

Today’s financier elite is ideologically very much the descendent of that “Cliveden Set” which often dictated policy to the British Foreign Office. 

Will any of today’s Bilderbergers make the 20-minute drive to Cliveden?

Both of these officers, along with Afghanistan commander General Allen, NATO commander Admiral Stavridis, and a dozen or more others of flag rank were ousted for various official reasons in a post election purge. 



But there is good reason to conclude that the United States had narrowly escaped what might be called a veiled military coup d’état.
Last year’s Bilderberg meeting in Chantilly, Virginia was clearly dominated by anti-Obama and pro-Romney forces.

At that time, it was revealed by Charlie Skelton of Guardian - one of the very few serious and reliable Bilderberg observers -- that Romney had made an unannounced visit to the Bilderberg confab. 

Obama, on the other hand, had not attended, although both he and Hillary Clinton had reportedly been on hand in 2008. 


The Bilderbergers had also provided valuable assistance to the Romney campaign. 

One leading example, which I discuss in detail in my book Just Too Weird: Bishop Romney and the Mormon Takeover of America - Polygamy, Theocracy, and Subversion is the activities of the PayPal and Facebook financier Peter Thiel, who contributed a reported $3.9 million to a super pack active on behalf of presidential candidate Ron Paul, who assisted Romney by draining votes away from serious candidates challenging Romney from his right, such as Senator Rick Santorum. 


Without a well-funded Ron Paul, the Ohio and Michigan primaries might have gone to Santorum, quite possibly giving him the Republican nomination. 

Ron Paul, representing the racist Southern Jurisdiction of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, was seeking to obtain the vice presidential nomination for Senator Rand Paul, his son. 

As it turned out, Romney did not need Paul’s convention votes, and turned elsewhere for his running mate.

At that time, it was widely recognized in Washington that Bilderberg was backing Romney. 

For example, an article in the superficial gossip blog Wonkette by Kirsten Boyd Johnson dated June 6, 2012 was headlined: “Did Bilderberg Monsters Just Crown Mitt Romney Your Next Leader?” 

We can therefore assume that be 2012 Bilderberg meeting also involved planning for the provocations and media strategies that would attempt to catapult Romney into the White House by fair means or foul.

In the event, the sneering plutocrat Romney turned out to be so inept and odious as a candidate that not even the massive resources of the Bilderberg network sufficed to make him president. 

This outcome teaches an important lesson: 

however preponderant their power, the Bilderberg elite does not possess magical powers to shape world events. 

If they want to take the presidency while preserving the formalities of an election, then they too must mobilize their forces for the long slog, and in this the Obama forces proved more adroit. 

But, by the same token, the Bilderbergers have not given up on their project of a permanent austerity and aggression dictatorship for the United States. Quite the contrary.

Petraeus and the problem of Bonapartist dictatorship

For years, General David Petraeus has been the principal focus of Bonapartist and authoritarian tendencies in US politics. 

We can think of him as a kind of American equivalent of France’s Marshall Philippe Pétain, especially as the latter emerges from the groundbreaking historical studies of historian Annie LaCroix-Riz. 

After World War I, Pétain - a defeatist and pessimist who had never really won a battle, and who collapsed psychologically during the final German assault of 1918 - became the convergence of French fascist forces associated with the secret networks known as the Cagoule and the Synarchie. 

General Petraeus, for his part, has long been the darling of the neocon faction, which wanted him to run for president in 2012. 

Petraeus has attended the Bilderberg meeting several times before, and has long been a member of the New York Council on Foreign Relations. 

Petraeus has signaled that the disagreement with Obama’s policy of ending the Iraq war, and now of winding down Afghanistan. 

We can assume that Petraeus shares the violent contempt for Obama which was imprudently expressed by his close associate, General Stanley McChrystal, who got fired when his comments were revealed by a journalist.



The Petraeus Myth from Paul Coker on Vimeo.

It may be argued that Petraeus has never really won a campaign. 

One could just as easily argue that the US military has not won against an opponent capable of serious warfare since General Douglas MacArthur’s masterful Inchon landing of September 1950. 

Although Petraeus has bitter enemies, he is widely regarded as the leading general of the current age. 

His return to Bilderberg this year shows that last year’s Paula Broadwell adultery scandal has not removed him from contention. 

Pétain, after all, was also famous for his dalliances.

Petraeus’ patron, Henry R. Kravis of KKR
General Petraeus does not arrive in Watford alone. He comes as the central figure of his own delegation. He is accompanied by his current patron, the Wall Street financier Henry Kravis of Kohlberg, Kravis, Roberts.

Kravis, with a personal fortune in excess of $4 billion, gives Petraeus a fantastically wealthy sponsor for his future activities. 

Kravis has just appointed Petraeus to head the KKR Global Institute, a new think tank supposedly devoted to studying problems of environment, economics, society, and governance.

In reality, the KKR Global Institute looks very much like the kind of private intelligence operation which would be needed to launch a rather unorthodox quest for the White House. 

One of Petraeus’ associates in his new job will be Ken Mehlman, a veteran political hack who once headed the Republican National Committee. Mehlman would not be much use for forecasting global trends, but would be tremendously valuable for someone attempting to assemble a political faction centered on Republican and reactionary circles. 

A certain Henry McVey of KKR will also be involved.

The Kravis family has something of a history of promoting presidential contenders. As I show in the chapter entitled “The Permian Basin Gang” of my 1992 George Bush: the Unauthorized Biography, the founder of the Kravis family fortune was Oklahoma oilman Ray Kravis, who became a close friend of GOP Senator Prescott Bush of the Wall Street firm Brown Brothers Harriman, for many decades the most politically connected private bank. 

When Prescott Bush wanted to send the young George H. W. Bush to learn the oil business, he asked Ray Kravis to give his son a job. 

Henry Kravis later served as a top financial angel for Bush 41. 

During those years, Henry Kravis wrote the largest single check in world history to complete his leveraged buyout of RJR Nabisco.

Also part of Petraeus retinue is Henry’s third wife Marie Josée Kravis, the dominant figure of the reactionary/neocon Hudson Institute. 

With this, the Petraeus regroupment acquires the services of a significant think tank to generate policy positions, personnel and staffing choices, and the like. 

Also part of the Petraeus party is Michael Gfoeller, who has ties to former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, and served for over a quarter century in the State Department. Gfoeller has been associated with Petraeus in the past, and is currently a political consultant with the lobbying division of Exxon Mobil.

The Bilderbergers supported Obama in 2008 because they wanted to use him as a tool to get the Anglo-American banking system safely through the world derivatives panic with US Treasury and US Federal Reserve bailouts, and a minimum of additional regulation. 

This was the function which Obama fulfilled. 

But now, the Bilderbergers are dissatisfied with Obama, and wish to reward him for his services by dumping him as soon as possible, as we saw in 2012.

On the one hand, the Bilderberg group remains deeply dissatisfied with what they regard as the slow and inadequate pace of primitive accumulation and austerity measures under the Obama regime. 

Obama promises the gradual demolition of Social Security and Medicare, but not fast enough to satisfy these austerity ghouls. 

Romney would have attempted a much more ambitious program of entitlement destruction, union busting, service cuts, and related measures.

Qusayr, the Stalingrad of the terrorist death squads
Another principle of Bilderberg complaint against Obama has emerged with greater urgency during the last several days. 

The civil war in Syria systematically fomented by NATO intelligence with the help of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, and the other reactionary Persian Gulf monarchies has now reached a decisive turning point with the fall of the rebel stronghold of Qusayr on June 5.

Tens of thousands of terrorists organized into anti-Assad death squads over several years with the help of the CIA and the State Department now face short-term defeat, rout, encirclement, and annihilation. 

In the meantime, the British and especially the French government are busy manufacturing dubious stories about the alleged use of poison gas by the Syrian government against the Anglo-French terrorist clients. 

This operation reeks of the worst neocolonialism: it is the Paris-London entente cordiale of 1904, the Sykes-Picot powers, and the infamous duo of Suez 1956, who are demanding the re-imposition of colonial rule in the Levant. 

Ironically, current Russian opposition and US skepticism in regard to this project are also a distant echo of that same Suez crisis.

The British, the French, the Israelis, and the neocons are doing everything possible to pressure Obama into attacking Syria and Hezbollah now, a move which would commit him to an attack on Iran a little later. 

Obama is guilty of numerous crimes and atrocities, including drone strikes, assassinations, cyber warfare, economic sanctions, the bombing of Libya, and many more, but the simple fact is that the Syrian crisis has gone on for more than two years and Obama is still refusing to launch the massive US bombing campaign demanded by the British Colonel Blimps and the French Vichy nostalgics. 

No one can tell how long Obama’s resolve will last, but this is the reality we have observed so far. 

Even Obama’s appointments of the warmongers and meddlers Susan Rice and Samantha Power to important regime posts can be variously interpreted. 

According to one view, these two charming ladies are being set up as prominent and visible targets for the raving attacks of the Congressional tea party fanatics, meaning that Obama personally will be spared a significant part of the flak. 

Whether Obama will ever follow their urgings towards aggression has yet to be seen. He turned down a demand from Hillary Clinton, Leon Panetta, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Martin Dempsey and Petraeus to arm the Syrian death squads in the fall of 2012, and Rice and Power are both far weaker than that combination.

Assuming that Obama continues to resist an attack on Syria, and continues to move towards austerity at the current pace, the moment may soon come when the Bilderbergers will want to get him out of the White House. 

Last year, that operation could have been accomplished under the cover of an election, which is always the preferred way. 

This year, Obama’s ouster would have to involve impeachment and removal from office on the Watergate model. 

There is no doubt that House Tea Party fanatics would be happy to impeach Obama at any time. 

They have pushed aside all other public business to focus on their lunatic account of the Benghazi events, their grotesque interpretation of the Internal Revenue Service affair, and their endless tub-thumping about regime snooping on the Associated Press, Fox reporter James Rosen, etc.

At the present time, the impeachment of Obama might prove to be an exercise in futility, since his support in the Senate remains intact. But that can change. 

The chances of removing Obama have just improved today with the appointment of a new Republican Senator by New Jersey Governor Christie to replace the recently deceased Senator Lautenberg of that state until October.

Ray McGovern: Obama fears assassination by the CIA

And then, 50 years after the Kennedy assassination, there are more energetic methods, as Obama personally seems to realize. 






"...if the United States ever experiences an attempt at a coup to overthrow the Government, it will come from the CIA..." October 2nd, 1963





One source shedding light on this matter is ex-CIA officer Ray McGovern, the former intelligence briefer of President George H. W. Bush, and now a peace activist. 

On a recent Pacifica radio broadcast, McGovern has reported this interesting account of remarks made by Obama after hours with supporters:

He’s afraid of what happened to Martin Luther King Jr. 
And I know from a good friend who was there when it happened, that at a small dinner with progressive supporters - after these progressive supporters were banging on Obama before the election, 

Why don’t you do the things we thought you stood for? 

Obama turned sharply and said, 

‘Don’t you remember what happened to Martin Luther King Jr.?’ 


"Jesse Jackson is not the Emperor of Black People!"

Who's blood is that, Jesse...?


That’s a quote, and that’s a very revealing quote.”

McGovern spoke on WBAI's show Law and Disorder this morning 

He was talking about his recent article calling Obama ‘a wuss’ and speculated that Obama had also placed John Brennan as head of the CIA out of fear that the CIA might turn on him, as it had on John Kennedy. 


JFK 2012 from Paul Coker on Vimeo.



”I’m pretty convinced that the president of the United States is afraid of the CIA.” 

(Philip Weiss, “Obama told friends he reneged on progressive promises out of fear of assassination” - former CIA analyst,” Mondoweiss, June 3, 2013)
The notion that Obama’s life is in danger has been methodically cultivated by his devoted supporters from the start of his presidential campaign in 2007. 

Ray McGovern, however, cannot be counted as one of those acolytes, and would be more likely to lambaste Obama than to make excuses for him. 

This account therefore acquires a certain authority.

From his own point of view, Obama has had a rough time lately. It has long been known that his greatest psychological satisfaction comes through the adulation he receives when making public speeches. 

When he delivered his speech on national security at the National Defense University, he was subjected to prolonged heckling by the veteran provocateur, Medea Benjamin of Code Pink. 

This heckling went on for a long time. 

Ms. Benjamin is very suspect, because she demanded that Obama stop old drone attacks and close Guantanamo  but said nothing at all about the far greater danger of a short-term attack on Syria, a country she has vilified in the recent past. 

And now, in an act of complete lese majesté, the hitherto untouchable First Lady Michelle Obama has been accosted at a private fundraiser by a lesbian activist demanding that Obama sign an executive order providing benefits for same-sex couples. 

Are these coincidences, or part of a psychological warfare pattern designed to remind Obama that he can be reached at any time?
Hollywood accredits the meme of storming the White House

There is also another dimension. 

Serious students of the events of September 11, 2001 are aware of the process by which the memes or elements of that tragic day were carefully introduced, accredited, and developed in the public mind, especially through a series of Hollywood movies. 




"To what degree should a President have confidence in the professional judgement of his military advisors and to what extent should he question it? 

John F Kennedy was widely criticised , especially in military circles. for insisting on civilian control over military operations during the Cuban Missiles Crisis down to the most minute detail.

Lyndon Johnson was similarly criticised for asserting presidential authority down to the unit level during operations in Vietnam.

President Carter consciously attempted to avoid these extremes. He spent many hours with military planners and members of the rescue ream, educating himself about the plan in advance. Once the decision was taken to proceed with the mission, he left the details in the hands of his military specialists.

Yet, the post-mortem of the operation by Admiral Holloway and his military colleagues was quite critical of the planning, coordination and training for the operation on apurely military, professsional level.

Two of those criticisms concerned elements of fatal importance....

But they could have been overcome"

- All Fall Down: America's Fateful Encounter with Iran



An example is the final scene of the movie The Fight Club, which shows the collapse of a number of skyscrapers in a manner eerily prophetic of the fate of the New York Twin Towers. 

Hollywood is, after all, not far away from Santa Monica, the home of that leading scenario factory known as the Rand Corporation.

Precisely in this field we have this sudden emergence of a new genre of a Hollywood blockbuster - the movie extravaganza devoted to an armed assault on the White House. 

"Once when he happened in some connexion to mention the war against Eurasia, she startled him by saying casually that in her opinion the war was not happening.

The rocket bombs which fell daily on London were probably fired by the Government of Oceania itself, 'just to keep people frightened'.

This was an idea that had literally never occurred to him."



The first of these arrived in March of this year under the title of Olympus Has Fallen, directed by Antoine Fuqua and starring Gerard Butler, Ashley Judd, and Morgan Freeman.

Here a large force of North Korean rogue terrorists strafe and storm the White House and take the president prisoner in the situation room, demanding that the US get out of Korea. 

The tone is paranoid/serious, with no element of satire or irony. 

The accent is on a certain kind of naturalism, including by having the real-life MSNBC commentator Lawrence O’Donnell report the events in a newscast. 

Many images portray the blowing up of the entire West Wing of the premises.

Due in theaters in late June is a second movie with virtually the identical theme, this time called White House Down, from Sony Pictures and Columbia. The director is the German Roland Emmerich, known for Independence Day, Godzilla, and The Patriot. The stars are Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx. 

This time, the White House is attacked by a domestic paramilitary group led by Emil Stenz, according to the script by James Vanderbilt of the well-known oligarchical clan. 

The attackers also blow up the dome of the US Capitol as a diversion. 

So far as is known, Obama has not commented on either of these two motion pictures.

The Kokesh march on Washington: Rifle-toting reactionaries

Are there correlated developments in the real world? 

There certainly are: 

Over a period of several weeks, the disgruntled Iraq war veteran Adam Kokesh was recently calling for a July 4 anti-Obama march of 10,000 black-clad white reactionaries to violate federal and District of Columbia law by crossing the Potomac from Virginia into the District and thence around the National Mall, passing by most of the executive departments, the Congress, and the White House - all the while armed with loaded rifles. 

Until about a year ago, Kokesh was a leading supporter of the Republican austerity fanatic and antigovernment demagogue Ron Paul, but he then broke with Paul and set out on his own course of provocation and adventurism.

In the unlikely event that Kokesh’s march had succeeded, he would have had the equivalent of one rifle division in position to intimidate the Congress and the White House in turn - a clear step towards anarchy. 

After being arrested at a pro-marijuana rally in Philadelphia and spending a few days in jail, Kokesh has changed his strategy, and is now calling for marches on July 4 in the 50 state capitals to demand immediate secession and breakup of the federal union. 

Loaded rifles would still be de rigeur. 

The question of secessionism was answered with thundering finality in the American Civil War of a century and a half ago, an episode which caused this nation more than 700,000 dead. 

Since the Confederate surrender at Appomattox in April 1865, anyone attempting to be open this question must be regarded as a dangerous madman. 

For our purposes here, it is enough to recall that the Kokesh march is too close for comfort to the two scenario films we have just discussed.

Such then is the immediate background for the Bilderberg 2013 deliberations this weekend. 

It remains to say a word about the abysmal quality of most Bilderberg analysis.

Last year at Chantilly, they obtained an incongruous situation in which the majority of the protesters assembled outside of the hotel gate were supporters of the Ron Paul presidential campaign. 

Whether they know it or not, these poor dupes were thus also supporting Mitt Romney, for whom Paul was serving as the right wingman. 


Mean? Perhaps just a little bit. But AJ can take it.
I just find it slightly ironic for someone who's supposedly a researcher....


There was a direct convergence between Paul backer Peter Thiel inside the meeting, and the Paul backers outside. 

amounts to a classic control the opposition. 

Things like this have been happening since ancient Greece, when it was the general rule that the cult of Apollo at Delphi controlled the various cults of Dionysios which appeared to naïve observers as the opposition.




Cutting through disinformation and controlled opposition
Any group as sophisticated as Bilderberg knows that its arrogant and oligarchical machinations will inevitably call forth a resistance. 

One way to control such a resistance is by providing them with a steady flow of disinformation, disguised as leaks from the inside. 

A conduit for such leaks was precisely the late Jim Tucker, who wrote for the American Free Press, the descendent of the house organ of the Roosevelt-hating and fascist-loving American Liberty League of the 1930s

Tucker was an unreconstructed Confederate racist. 

At his last Bilderberger meeting, Tucker told a group of journalists that he regarded the American Civil War as the “War of Northern Aggression.” 

He added that he wanted reparations, not for those who had been enslaved, but rather for the slave owners, whom he said had been illegally deprived of their property by the evil President Lincoln. 

Tucker claimed that the Bilderberg group was in favor of socialism, and ferociously opposed to free market laissez-faire capitalism



In reality, David Rockefeller, one of those who paid for Bilderberg activities over several decades, had hired the Austrian school libertarian economist Friedrich von Hayek as his personal tutor at the London School of Economics in the 1930s, and had later financed an American professorship for Ludwig von Mises, another Austro-libertarian luminary. 



This means that David Rockefeller must be regarded as a founder of both the Bilderberg group and the Austrian school of economics. 


Why Hayek and the Austrian School's Ideas Became Established, Despite Being Bat-sh t Crazy from Paul Coker on Vimeo.

""An idea whose time has come cannot be stopped by any army or any government" 
Ron Paul

Even if that were true (which it quite clearly is not, looking at the world around us), if you apply your ideas as to how the world ought to be run and in reality, they are an utter failure, producing wholly different outcomes to what your theory says they should produce, then your idea is a BAD IDEA, and when you came up with it, you were WRONG and should STOP DOING IT AND TRY TO HAVE A BETTER IDEA.

You know, one based upon actual reality, kind of.

But it did no good to call these plain facts to Tucker’s attention: he kept repeating that the Bilderberg group supported Obama for reelection.

Whether Tucker was fed these stories by a functionary from within Bilderberg, or whether he simply invented them out of whole cloth on his own, is a matter for further inquiry. 

To the extent that Tucker was seen as the public face of the opposition to Bilderberg, the elitists had nothing to worry about.


David Aaronovitch's Second Explanation is Actually the Correct One

He just neglects to mention that he (Aaronovitch) is also part of the cover-up and that cancer-causing viruses (aka oncoviruses, most notably SV-40) are known to have been found (although not deliberately put there) in vaccines such as the live Polio vaccine since at least 1956.

Similarly, at last year’s Bilderberg event it was breathlessly reported that the name of Ron Paul was being cursed inside the meeting. 

Since the Bilderberg faction around Thiel was contributing large sums to help Ron Paul’s campaign efforts, and since the overwhelming consensus of Bilderberg as a whole was pro-Romney, we might be driven to the conclusion that this report was just a face-saving trick by the Paulbearers to conceal the embarrassing elitist support for their man. 

But it is also possible that the name of Ron Paul was being cursed by the waiters, busboys, and cleaning ladies when they found out that Paul wanted to take away their union, their minimum wage, their food stamps, their unemployment benefits, their hope for Social Security and Medicare in their old age, the Head Start program and Pell Grants for their kids, and the WIC high-protein meals for their pregnant wives and babies.

The Paul supporters feel an enduring gratitude towards Thiel. This week, we read in an article by Paul Joseph Watson appearing on Infowars of June 3, 2013: 

“Another notable attendee is Peter Thiel, the man who provided the financial muscle for online ventures like Facebook and Paypal, as well as LinkedIn and Friendster.” 

More to the point is the fact that Thiel also “provided the financial muscle” for Ron Paul’s super pack to the tune of $3.9 million. 

The fear is evidently that this inconvenient fact might cause some pesky cognitive dissonance among Watson’s readers, many of whom were and are devoted supporters of the Paul dynasty’s inhuman super-austerity policies.

This line of argument currently also attempts to portray the anarcho-capitalist Thiel as a benign force for openness and transparency within the sinister Bilderberg context. This is so absurd that no comment is necessary. It will be wise to remain skeptical in regard to such accounts.

The inability of libertarians to discover and report the truth about Bilderberg comes down to this. 

Bilderberg is a creature of the Rockefellers, and so is the Austrian school to which the libertarians subscribe. 

They are thus pre-programmed, as if with an inner gyroscope, to converge on the policy goals of the financier elite. 

The Bilderberg group demands genocidal austerity across the board. 

The libertarians, calling this the fight against big government (even though the sacrifices are borne by innocent individuals), heartily agree. 

The Bilderberg group ardently desires to oust Obama from the White House. 

The libertarians, blinded by their fanatical hatred of Obama, and long since aligned with the far right demagogic line emanating from such scurrilous websites as Drudge and Breitbart, are totally on board.

Only when it comes to the attack on Syria, Hezbollah, and Iran, about which Obama is dragging his feet, might the libertarians have some objections. But by that point, they themselves, through their very own efforts, would have largely destroyed the institutional basis for resistance to a future and wider war - such as through trade unions, which the Pauls wish to destroy. 

The irony of the libertarians is that they always claim technically not to be fascists in the full 1930s central European sense of the term

but, as the example of German Chancellor Brüning shows, libertarian economic and social policies can be counted on to degrade social and economic conditions to the point where fascist rule becomes virtually inevitable, as seen in 1932-1933.

And remember: 

Bilderberg is of Dutch origin, and so is Petraeus.
