Somnolent Europe, Russia, and China
world wake up?

Ambrose Evans-Pritchard of the London Telegraph
“Declassified American government documents show
that the US intelligence community ran a campaign in
the Fifties and Sixties to build momentum for a
united Europe. It funded and directed the European
documents confirm suspicions voiced at the time that
America was working aggressively behind the scenes
to push Britain into a European state. One
memorandum, dated July 26, 1950, gives instructions
for a campaign to promote a fully fledged European
parliament. It is signed by Gen. William J. Donovan,
head of the American wartime Office of Strategic
Services, precursor of the CIA.”
documents show that the European Union was a
creature of the CIA.
As I have
previously written, Washington believes that it is
easier to control one government,
the EU, than to control many separate European
governments. As Washington has a long term
investment in orchestrating the European Union,
Washington is totally opposed to any country exiting
the arrangement. That is why President Obama
recently went to London to tell his lapdog, the
British Prime Minister, that there could be no
European nations, the British people were never
allowed to vote on whether they were in favor of
their country ceasing to exist and them becoming
Europeans. British history would become the history
of a bygone people like the Romans and Babylonians.
oppressive nature of unaccountable EU laws and
regulations and the EU requirement to accept massive
numbers of third world immigrants have created a
popular demand for a British vote on whether to
remain a sovereign country or to dissolve and submit
to Brussels and its dictatorial edicts. The vote is
scheduled for June 23.
Washington’s position is that the British people
must not be permitted to decide against the EU,
because such a decision is not in Washington’s
minister’s job is to scare the British people with
alleged dire consequences of “going it alone.” The
claim is that “little England” cannot stand alone.
The British people are being told that isolation
will spell their end, and their country will become
a backwater bypassed by progress. Everything great
will happen elsewhere, and they will be left out.
If the fear
campaign does not succeed and the British vote to
exit the EU, the open question is
whether Washington will permit the British
government to accept the democratic outcome.
Alternatively, the British government will deceive
the British people, as it routinely does, and
declare that Britain has negotiated concessions from
Brussels that dispose of the problems that concern
the British people.
Washington’s position shows that Washington is a
firm believer that only Washington’s interests are
important. If other peoples wish to retain national
sovereignty, they are simply being selfish.
Moreover, they are out of compliance with
Washington, which means they can be declared a
“threat to American national security.” The British
people are not to be permitted to make decisions
that do not comply with Washington’s interest. My
prediction is that the British people will either be
deceived or overridden.
Washington’s self-centeredness, the self-absorption,
the extraordinary hubris and arrogance, that
explains the orchestrated “Russian threat.” Russia
has not presented herself to the West as a military
threat. Yet, Washington is confronting Russia with a
US/NATO naval buildup in the Black Sea (http://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2016/05/04/nato-form-allied-fleet-black-sea-plans-fraught-with-great-risks.html
), a naval, troop and tank buildup in the Baltics
and Poland (http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/feb/10/uk-to-contribute-five-extra-ships-to-baltic-as-nato-boosts-presence
), missile bases on Russia’s borders, and plans to
incorporate the former Russian provinces of Georgia
and Ukraine in US defense pacts against Russia.
Washington, its generals and European vassals
declare Russia to be a threat, they mean that Russia
has an independent foreign policy and acts in her
own interest rather than in Washington’s interest.
Russia is a threat, because Russia demonstrated the
capability of blocking Washington’s intended
invasion of Syria and bombing of Iran. Russia
blunted one purpose of Washington’s coup in the
Ukraine by peacefully and democratically reuniting
with Crimera, the site of Russia’s Black Sea naval
base and a Russian province for several centuries.
have wondered how it was possible for small
countries such as Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yeman, and
Venezuela to be threats to the US superpower. On its
face Washington’s claim is absurd. Do US presidents,
Pentagon officials, national security advisors, and
chairmen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff really regard
countries of so little capability as military
threats to the United States and NATO countries?
No, they do
not. The countries were declared threats, because
they have, or had prior to their destruction,
independent foreign and economic policies. Their
policy independence means that they do not or did
not accept US hegemony. They were attacked in order
to bring them under US hegemony.
Washington’s view, any country with an independent
policy is outside Washington’s umbrella and,
therefore, is a threat.
became, in the words of US President Obama, an
“unusual and extraordinary threat to the national
security and foreign policy of the United States,”
necessitating a “national emergency” to contain the
“Venezuelan threat” when the Venezuelan government
put the interests of the Venezuelan people above
those of American corporations.
became a threat when the Russian government
demonstrated the ability to block Washington’s
intended military attacks on Syria and Iran and when
Washington’s coup in the Ukraine failed to deliver
to Washington the Russian Black Sea naval base.
Venezuela cannot possibly pose a military threat to
the US, so Venezuela cannot possibly pose an
“unusual and extraordinary threat to the national
security of the US.” Venezuela is a “threat” because
the Venezuelan government does not comply with
absolutely certain that Russia has made no threats
whatsoever against the Baltics, Poland, Romania,
Europe, or the United States. It is absolutely
certain that Russia has not invaded the Ukraine. How
do we know? If Russia had invaded Ukraine, the
Ukraine would no longer be there. It would again be
a Russian province where until about 20 years ago
Ukraine resided for centuries, for longer than the
US has existed. Indeed, the Ukraine belongs in
Russia more than Hawaii and the deracinated and
conquered southern states belong in the US.
fantastic lies from the highest ranks of the US
government, from NATO, from Washington’s British
lackeys, from the bought-and-paid-for Western media,
and from the bought-and-paid-for EU are repeated
endlessly as if they are God’s revealed truth.
exists because it is under Russian protection. That
is the only reason Syria still exists, and it is
also another reason that Washington wants Russia out
of the way.
and China realize their extreme danger? I don’t
think even Iran realizes its ongoing danger despite
its close call.
and China realize their danger, would the Russian
government permit one-fifth of its media to be
foreign owned? Does Russia understand that “foreign
owned” means CIA owned? If not, why not? If so, why
does the Russian government permit its own
destabilization at the hands of Washington’s
intelligence service acting through foreign owned
even more careless. There are 7,000 US-funded NGOs
(non-governmental organizations) operating in China
). Only last month did the Chinese government
finally move, very belatedly, to put some
restrictions on these foreign agents who are working
to destabilize China. The members of these
treasonous organizations have not been arrested.
They have merely been put under police watch, an
almost useless restriction as Washington can provide
endless money with which to bribe the Chinese
Russia and China think that their police are less
susceptible to bribes than Mexico’s or American
police? Despite the multi-decade “war on drugs,” the
drug flow from Mexico to the US is unimpeded.
Indeed, the police forces of both countries have a
huge interest in the “war on drugs” as the war
brings them riches in the form of bribes. Indeed, as
the crucified reporter for the San Jose Mercury
newspaper proved many years ago, the CIA itself is
in the drug-running business.
United States truth-tellers are persecuted and
imprisoned, or they are dismissed as “conspiracy
theorists,” “anti-semites,” and “domestic
extremists.” The entire Western World consists of a
dystopia far worse than the one described by George
Orwell in his famous book, 1984.
and China permit Washington to operate in their
media, in their universities, in their financial
systems, and in “do-good” NGOs that infiltrate every
aspect of their societies demonstrates that both
governments have no interest in their survival as
independent states. They are too scared of being
called “authoritarian” by the Western presstitute
media to protect their own independence.
prediction is that Russia and China will soon be
confronted with an unwelcome decision:
accept American hegemony or go to war.
