‘The State Cannot Convict Itself’: Operation ‘Gladio’ & the Crimes of U.S. Empire

I have long held the view presented in this excellent, re-blogged article and encapsulated in this quote from it:
“Given post-WWII history and our current state of affairs Western governments and institutions clearly exist as criminal entities which function outside the rule of all recognized morality and law, domestic and international.”
…and so I am both gratified to the author, Gary Weglarz, for putting together such a fine piece, to Sarah Abed for sharing it, and also pleased to have the opportunity to share it further myself.

This is information that all Westerners should be aware of, if they want to own their own lives and to live consciously, enjoying the freedom to live and act as moral, caring, self-respecting beings. I don’t for a moment expect that everyone would choose to take that course, preferring to remain ignorant and controlled, living under the “full spectrum domination” that is the global objective of the US elites.

Me? I’d rather die fighting for the liberty that is every human’s right to enjoy.

The key institutions of Western societies have lost their credibility. They fail to merit either the respect or loyalty of the domestic populations they purport to serve.

Testing the validity of this assertion requires examination of Western institutions from a holistic rather than fragmentary perspective. This is easier said than done.

There exists a massive amount of near real-time web based information available for us to process daily if we are attempting to keep abreast of world events. This often leaves us diligently evaluating recent events, while lacking the opportunity to step back and assemble these discrete events into a more comprehensible whole.

“Going Full Whig” – Kunstler’s Bombshell

It was around midnight when I penned my previous post on Jim Kunstler’s latest article – : Going Full Whig yesterday.  It may not be surprising therefore, that I did not possess the mental acuity at that late hour to fully take in what he was saying. So, here I am, back again, less than seven hours later, having spent a restless night mulling over the words I remember from that piece, taking a second bite of the cherry to try to explain the momentous ideas unleashed by him that may also have passed the casual reader by.

I take you to the last paragraph of Going Full Whig.  Having just suggested that Donald Trump will never be permitted to hold the Republican Party nomination for President and that the party will destroy itself before allowing that to happen and/or engineer the demise of said Donald some time before the election in November through the auspices of the Deep State, Kunstler goes on to say this:

“Or perhaps this is America’s true imperial moment, when all party politics surrenders to the pre-tsunami undertow of events. None of the idiot network commentators or Wash-Po or NY Times columnists seem to notice that the global economy is sinking into a coma, and in so doing is igniting cluster-bombs of default through the financial system. That so far insidious destruction should effloresce exactly around the time of the nominating conventions. The tide will have visibly gone miles out just as Hillary mounts the podium like some bad joke of a national mommy and Trump sits fretting in his Cleveland hotel room wondering how his rococo dreams of glory turned into a shit sandwich from room service. Yeats’s widening gyre is upon us. The biggest surprise of all yet-to-come is that television will fail to explain it. The second coming will not be the reappearance of the celebrity known as Jesus Christ, but rather of the event called the American Civil War.”

This is truly a momentous statement regarding the future of America, not to mention of the world.  It sits well however, with my own view of what 2016 is scheduled to bring about.  I have spoken of it being a year of darkness or the beginning of a Dark Age for mankind.  I used that term because I could not see clearly, and to some extent still can’t, just how this would pan out as the months of the year unfold.  But what I had in mind, among such impending catastrophes as a collapse of global society, trade and finance, was the kind of unrest and conflict that an America at war with itself might instigate.

Jim uses the all too common but unnervingly appropriate allegory these days of a tsunami to illustrate a series of much more than just likely events to occur in this election year.  I am not quite sure how the disastrous eventuation of a collapse of party politics together with destruction of the financial system can be termed a  “true imperial moment”, but I do see how this taking place at the height of Convention Season in the second half of July 2016 could be likened to the “pre-tsunami undertow” and the associated receding shoreline that precedes the return of mountainous waves of destructive forces which would ensue.  A new American Civil War, in that light, does not seem too preposterous a concept to envisage.  A global war, following hard on the heels of that, to fill the vacuum a weakened America would create, would not seem so improbable either.

The terrifying thing is, that is less than five months away, convention season being the second half of July.  Can our cosy and sleepy little world of material comforts (those of us that still have them) be so close to disappearing for ever?

“Between the Loathsome and the Unspeakable”

Sometimes life just gets so busy, even for someone who has nowhere to go or be at any particular time (that would be me of course).  So busy that important things get missed sometimes.

And so it was, that I came to miss this week’s fine word picture weekly episode from Jim Kunstler’s Clusterfuck Nation blog, which as usual came out on Tuesday (Australian time), and which carries the title Between the Loathsome and the Unspeakable that I have borrowed (as a quote) to head this post.  Kunstler’s post is recommended reading.

It all centres around the 2016 US General Election which will determine who is to be the next US President.  The so-called leader of the free world (chortle-chortle).

It is not clear to me just whether it is Hillary who is the ‘Loathesome’ and Donald who is the ‘Unspeakable’, or whether it is the other way around.  But I suspect, I honestly suspect, that it doesn’t really matter a single iota either way.

Jim (JHK), lays out reasons as to why the result of said proceedings, what he refers to as – “the stupidest election contest in American history”, may be short lived (some sort of termination event perhaps, emanating from “the apparatus of the runaway Deep State (NSA and the military)”), or the whole thing may never happen, being overtaken (preceded) by overarching, unstoppable and grossly destabilising external events of an entirely different nature, centred around banking and financial collapse and which should provide “reason to worry that America will be too disorderly later this year to even hold the 2016 general election”.  If you have been keeping up with the sort of news that could topple our already unstable global economy, you will have no problem in recognising the organisation referred to as ‘DB’ in Jim’s post.  It is not an American entity.

I hope I haven’t given away too many spoilers.  Just read the damn thing for yourself.  Here is the link again: Between the Loathsome and the Unspeakable.

 

 

“There’s No Understanding Anything Without A Grasp Of Its History”

“There’s no understanding anything without a grasp of its history—which, of course, is the American failing over and over again.”

The above is a quote by interviewer in this piece:  “Intelligent people know that the empire is on the downhill”: A veteran CIA agent spills the goods on the Deep State and our foreign policy nightmares After almost 30 years in the CIA, Ray McGovern became a truth-teller. He sits down with Salon for a long debriefing

This is a deep and insightful exchange which I recommend to anyone who wishes to know more about the world they live in and who pulls the strings that cause the events that we see happening around us.  You need to be aware of this stuff …and it’s pretty much right up to date.
