If you've never heard of Echelon here's an ok introduction. It's produced by the History Channel (histrionics?) so take it with a pinch of salt...
The United States, England, Canada, Australia and New Zealand all have laws that prevent them from spying on their own citizens. But that doesn't mean that other nations can't do this work instead...
ECHELON: THE MOST SECRET SPY SYSTEM reveals the details of the information sharing system developed by these five nations to get around the prohibitions on internal surveillance. Highly placed insiders, including National Security Agency Director Gen. Mike Hayden, Secretary of State Colin Powell and Representative Peter Gross, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, talk about how the system works, why it was put in place and the results it has generated, while a different perspective is offered by people like Jim Bamford, the author of Body of Secrets and Wayne Madsen of the Electronic Privacy Information Center
How to covertly train paramilitaries, censor the press, ban unions, employ terrorists, conduct warrantless searches, suspend habeas corpus, conceal breaches of the Geneva Convention and make the population love it
JULIAN ASSANGE (investigative editor) Monday June 15, 2008
Wikileaks has released a sensitive 219 page US military counterinsurgency manual. The manual, Foreign Internal Defense Tactics Techniques and Procedures for Special Forces (1994, 2004), may be critically described as "what we learned about running death squads and propping up corrupt government in Latin America and how to apply it to other places". Its contents are both history defining for Latin America and, given the continued role of US Special Forces in the suppression of insurgencies, including in Iraq and Afghanistan, history making.
The leaked manual, which has been verified with military sources, is the official US Special Forces doctrine for Foreign Internal Defense or FID.
FID operations are designed to prop up a "friendly" government facing a popular revolution or guerilla insurgency. FID interventions are often covert or quasi-covert due to the unpopular nature of the governments being supported ("In formulating a realistic policy for the use of advisors, the commander must carefully gauge the psychological climate of the HN [Host Nation] and the United States.")
The manual directly advocates training paramilitaries, pervasive surveillance, censorship, press control and restrictions on labor unions & political parties. It directly advocates warrantless searches, detainment without charge and (under varying circumstances) the suspension of habeas corpus. It directly advocates employing terrorists or prosecuting individuals for terrorism who are not terrorists, running false flag operations and concealing human rights abuses from journalists. And it repeatedly advocates the use of subterfuge and "psychological operations" (propaganda) to make these and other "population & resource control" measures more palatable.
Evidence is stacking up to suggest that the alleged "suicide" of DC Madam Deborah Jeane Palfrey was in fact a calculated murder, as the manager of Palfrey’s Florida Condo reveals that Palfrey was not suicidal when he spoke to her Monday and told him of her fears about a contract being out on her life.
The new testimony is backed up by at least four other recorded public statements on behalf of Palfrey attesting to the fact that she would never commit suicide and if she was found dead to immediately suspect murder.
Despite these on-the-record statements, the majority of the corporate media has ignored each one and instead given credence to the unverified claim of a professional conspiracy debunker who has been caught fabricating statements in the past.
Thomas Paine, one of America’s most influential Founding Fathers, wrote in his brilliant essay, Common Sense, that government at its very best, when it is doing everything right and nothing wrong, is a necessary evil. In other words, Thomas Paine and those (like myself) who share his views on government believe that all governments are inherently evil.
This means that those who work for government are supporting, by their efforts, something evil, and are therefore perpetrating evil. In other words, all bureaucrats, that is, all elected and appointed officials, whether federal, state, city, county or otherwise, are supporting a government that is fundamentally evil. This includes the police.
Did you know that police officers are actually government corporation security guards? It’s true. As a matter of fact, many police uniforms contain the words, “Corporate Police” on the hat or jacket. Police officers work for evil governments. They support evil. They are evil.
Dear reader, this is the 96th Letter of an Autonomous Thinker.
When you find a lot of money you have found the elite.
Often I have been asked to give names of elitepeople. But I think masspeople are sufficient autonomous to decide which eliteperson they want to pressurize.
I give only methods how to find elitepersons. Because the elite always wants to have more than the masses, look for the money and you find the elite.
Money allows the elite to distinguish itself from the masses. With money the elite has build a separate world that is closed to masspeople. Money is the ultimate and dominating reason why elitepeople want to have power.
POWER and MONEY are intertwined.
But while it is not always clear who has power, money can always been traced. Money is spend in special places and on special goods. A Ferrari or a big yaught cannot be bought by people who just work for a monthly salary. In five star hotels masspeople are only servants. A massperson can never get a ticket for the first row in a theatre when a premiere is on program.
You can also determine who belongs to the elite by using the Method of the Three F's. (see "Who belongs to the elite", ). Elitepeople possess Finance (capital), Functions (to take important decisions) and Family (a network of trusted people).
In the past I used this method to make a list of more than two hundred people who belong to the Dutch top elite. I published the result in "The Power of the Family-Capital and What to do About It" (1980). Alas only available in Dutch.
By following the money trail you can find elitepersons.
Then and only then you can decide what to do to make an end to the dominating positions of elitepersons, to the situation in which decisions favour in the first place the continuation of the safe and privileged position of a few humans at the cost of the position of the vast majority of humanity.
More money for a small group of already privileged people is the basic reason that many people do not have a decent life. Even when it costs near to nothing to eradicate measles, malaria or tuberculosis, the money is not available.
It is not going to happen that extreme poverty is eradicated in a few years.
On the contrary, the elite continues to channel vast amounts of money to itself.
And again, follow the money and you find the culprits.
Then and only then masspeople can undertake the right actions that make it impossible for the elite to continue the exclusive and safe life they lived for ages. And it is fairly easy to disturb situations that can only be bought by excessive money.
When the elite cannot live any more its privileged life, then and only then the road is opened towards a New World in which all people have equal status.
If enough people read this essay, we just might stop the Bush administration and Israel from engineering the next Pearl Harbor. The Japanese “sneak attack” on Pearl Harbor was publicized two weeks in advance in the headlines of one newspaper. If our generation does not act to stop the Next Pearl Harbor, we will be responsible for launching of World War III and for the end of life as we knew it.
How could the Israelis and the Bush administration engineer us into World War III? There has been much talk of another 911. Previously, I have said too many people know that the World Trade Center was taken down by controlled demolitions so they cannot do that again and expect the same result. Nor can they set off a dirty bomb and radiate tens of thousands of Americans. As I said,would you want to walk around on the same streets as those thousands of people if you had irradiated them and induced terminal cancers in them? If they cannot pull off another 911, what can they do?
Democracy has become an empty word that the world leaders kick around like an inflated balloon when it serves their interests. What is of importance to the Corporatocracy that is running the planet is very much the opposite of democracy. What the leaders are depending on for the continuation of the current misrule of the world is centralized power and dumbed-down, apathetic and poverty-stricken masses who pose no danger to the status quo. http://jahtruth.net/democra.htm
Democracy doesn't promote the interests of the ruling plutocrats. Their goal is to concentrate all the money and power in the tiny elite that hold the strings of the dancing puppets who are politicians. Government and business are all one and the same. Or different parts of the same monster. Some hold the strings of power, others do the kicking and dancing. http://jahtruth.net/300.htm
What is the difference between a totalitarian state which controls all the means of production and one where the owners of the means of production control the state? A different brand of totalitarianism but the contempt for the people could not be more deadly.
'The Ripple Effect' is THE best video yet produced in respect of what really happened in London on 7th July 2005. Whereas Alex 'I Am A Zionist Disinformationalist' Jones' 'Terrorstorm' acknowledges that Israel had foreknowledge of the event, his documentary does not, however, go anywhere near the issue of Mossad involvement. On the contrary, Jones heads in the opposite direction as per usual and tries to convince us that MI5 did it.
Indeed, Alex Jones is on the record as saying that his research offers "conclusive evidence" that British intelligence were the perpetrators. While MI5 were most definitely involved in the atrocities - in a faciltating role at the very least - all the evidence points towards the Israeli Mossad being responsible for executing the bombings. Unlike 'Terrorstorm', 'Ludicrous Diversions' and 'Mind The Gap', 'The Ripple Effect' acknowledges this fact.
'The Ripple Effect' is THE definitive video on the 7/7 bombings. The producer has done a wonderful job in putting together a comprehensive list of verifiable, documented facts which offer conclusive proof that the official account of the events of 7th July is a lie. Spread this video far, spread it wide.
I hope this finds you well, in good spirit and having a good day.
Regarding the 7/7/2005 terrorist attacks in London, let us look at the facts, and what we were told, and compare them. Then, using Ockham’s Razor and common-sense, let us see what conclusions are to be drawn, so we can all understand what most likely really did happen that day.
This is the first trailer for LUCUS' upcoming documentary titled Brutal Reality - Rise of the Police State which will be out on July 4th, 2008.
This documents police abusing their power, killing people with tasers, and over stepping their authority.
Rare footage and other scenes make for a riveting but gut wrenching account of the tyranny that is looming over American life.
If you think you are free than you need to watch Brutal Reality.
When the 9/11 truth about the conspiracy comes to light, people like Paul Wolfowitz and Donald Rumsfeld may see the same fate as Saddam Hussein. Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda are CIA assets. The network they operate is funded through the ISI by the central intelligence agency. When you have building 7, freefall speed, Silverstein saying "Pull it" and all the vast evidence about September 11th, you come to understand the detail. There were bombs in the WTC, or World Trade Center, and the Pentagon was hit by a missile. Flight 93 was shot down over Pennsylvania. The 19 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia which has direct ties right to George Herbert Walker Bush, Bush SR. Prescott Bush funded Hitler and the nazi party. If we don't stop this it will lead to World war 3, or WW3. You will not find any Britney Spears or Anna Smith videos on my channel. Please subscribe to LUCUS' channel at www.youtube.com/realitynetwork to get REAL news that you may have missed on FOX, NBC, CBS, and CNN. Olbermann, Lou Dobbs, Bill Oreilly, or Sean Hannity will not cover this topic. The Iraq war, Afghanistand, and coming Iran war are all based on the pretext of 9/11, which was a total lie. We are sending our soldiers off to war based on a lie. All this torture and death for a lie. This has to stop.
The most common definition of a conspiracy
is two or more people secretly planning a criminal act.
There exists a worldwide conspiracy that has been going on for
atleast 2600 years. One of its objectives is to form totalistic
"New World Order" with a reduced population of approximately
80%. It is in total opposition of God's
Kingdom of Earth, it's designer being satan, the opposer.
