Breaking: Pentagon Review Says America’s Nukes Are FUBAR

Is this the cover story for getting rid of nukes that the galactics have disabled?


The guys babysitting our missiles in Montana couldn’t agree more.

—By 


Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is ordering a massive overhaul of America’s nuclear weapons program after finding it to be plagued with “fundamental flaws,” the AP reported this evening. Pentagon-commissioned reviews of the nuclear forces have found outdated equipment, weak leadership, and abysmal morale among the men and women responsible for maintaining and launching some of the most destructive weapons on the planet. Many of the problems were already well known, but the language the Pentagon is using to describe them is uncharacteristically strong. “Hagel’s reviews concluded that the structure of US nuclear weapons forces is so incoherent that it cannot be properly managed,” noted the AP, which got a briefing on the highlights from two senior defense officials.

“Nothing the Air Force is doing is going to reduce the risk. It’s not missileers who are at fault, it’s the mission.”

The latest review, which was expected to be released this week, was conducted by Retired General James Welch, a former top nuclear commander whom the Pentagon has tapped repeatedly to assess problems with its nuclear oversight. In 2007, Welch led the initial outside review of what remains the worst nuclear weapons scandal in recent years: Six nuclear missiles went missing for 36 hours after a crew at Minot Air Force Base mistakenly loaded them onto a plane and flew them across the country. (See our timeline: “That Time We Almost Nuked North Carolina.”) Welch later directed two follow-up assessments in April 2011 and April 2013, the last of which noted improvements and concluded that “the nuclear force is professional, disciplined, committed and attentive to the special demands of the mission.”

But that conclusion was quickly called into question by a string of new scandals, as detailed in “Death Wears Bunny Slippers,” my recent feature story about the ICBM program. In the months following Welch’s review, 98 missileers were implicated in a cheating scandal and nine midlevel commanders were fired; a leaked email from the commander of the nuclear missile wing at North Dakota’s Minot Air Force base complained of “rot” in the missile force; and Gen. Michael Carey was removed as commander of the ICBM program after an official trip to Russia, where he engaged in “inappropriate behavior,” including heavy drinking, rudeness to his hosts, and associating with “suspect” women. Just last week, the Air Force fired two high-level commanders in the ICBM program and disciplined a third for various leadership lapses, including the maltreatment of subordinates.

Welch has since distanced himself from last year’s rosy assessment. His spokesman told the AP that the 2013 report was addressing organizational aspects of the nuclear mission and not primarily personnel and attitude issues.

The Air Force has long struggled to create a balance between strong oversight of missileers and the need to create a rewarding work environment that attracts talented recruits. Following the 2007 missing-nukes scandal, the Air Force instituted a regimen of strict tests and inspections that “was as much punishment as it was rigor,” Lt. General Stanley Kowalski, now the Deputy Commander of US Strategic Command, said at the time. In a follow-up report three years later, Welch suggested that the strategy had backfired by sowing mistrust and creating a sense of “nuclear paranoia”—talented airmen were avoiding nuclear weapons jobs.

According to the AP, Hagel will seek to invest an additional $1 to $10 billion in the nuclear program and promote its top commanders to give the nuclear wing more clout within the Air Force bureaucracy.

During my reporting for “Death Wears Bunny Slippers,” I interviewed a slew of nuclear policy experts and traveled to Great Falls, Montana—home to Malmstrom Air Force Base—where I spent time with current and former missileers. They told me of the mind-numbing boredom of babysitting ICBMs for 24 hours straight, of cheating on proficiency tests, of how one colonel made them shit in a box because he didn’t want to take the missiles offline to fix the toilets. They were basically dying to get the hell out.

The consensus among the experts was that no amount of funding or attention will be enough to fix the ICBM program’s biggest problem: obsolescence. “I am deeply disappointed with the happy talk coming out of the Air Force and Department of Defense on this,” Joseph Cirincione, president of the Ploughshares Fund, a foundation focused on nuclear weapons policy, told me. (Disclosure: Ploughshares has provided some funding for Mother Jones’ national security reporting.) “These missileers are in dead-end jobs and they know it. They pull 24-hour shifts underground waiting to push a button that they know they are never going to push, and if they did, they would be condemning hundreds of thousands of civilians to death. What kind of job is that? New helicopters and new managers are not going to fix this problem. Nothing the Air Force is doing is going to reduce the risk. It’s not missileers who are at fault, it’s the mission.”

Operation Hollywood

This interview is from 2004. With everything we are witnessing in the news today, it seems truer than ever, doesn’t it? -LW


How the Pentagon bullies movie producers into showing the U.S. military in the best possible light

—By Jeff Fleischer

To keep the Pentagon happy, some Hollywood producers have been known to turn villains into heroes, remove central characters, change politically sensitive settings, or add military rescues to movies that require none. There are no bad guys in the military. No fraternization between officers and enlisted troops. No drinking or drugs. No struggles against bigotry. The military and the president can’t look bad (though the State Department and Canada can).

“The only thing Hollywood likes more than a good movie is a good deal,” David Robb explains, and that’s why the producers of films like “Top Gun,” “Stripes” and “The Great Santini” have altered their scripts to accommodate Pentagon requests. In exchange, they get inexpensive access to the military locations, vehicles, troops and gear they need to make their movies.

During his years as a journalist for Daily Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, Robb heard about a quid-pro-quo agreement between the Pentagon and Hollywood studios, and decided to investigate. He combed through thousands of Pentagon documents, and interviewed dozens of screenwriters, producers and military officials. The result is his new book, “Operation Hollywood.”

Robb talked with MotherJones.com about deal-making that defines the relationship between Hollywood and the Pentagon.

MotherJones.com: How far back does collaboration between the U.S. military and Hollywood go?

David Robb: The current approval process was established right after World War II. Before that, the Pentagon used to help producers, but it wasn’t very formalized, like it is now. They helped producers going back to at least 1927. The very first movie that won an Oscar, “Wings,” — even that got military assistance.

MJ.com: What steps does a producer take to get assistance from the military? How does the process work?

DR: The first thing you have to do is send in a request for assistance, telling them what you want pretty specifically — ships, tanks, planes, bases, forts, submarines, troops — and when you want this material available. Then you have to send five copies of the script to the Pentagon, and they give it to the affected service branches — Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard. Then you wait and see if they like your script or not. If they like it, they’ll help you; if they don’t, they won’t. Almost always, they’ll make you make changes to the military depictions. And you have to make the changes that they ask for, or negotiate some kind of compromise, or you don’t get the stuff.

So then you finally get the approval, after you change your script to mollify the military, put some stuff in about how great it is to be in the military. Then when you go to shoot the film, you have to have what I call a “military minder” — but what they call a “technical advisor” — someone from the military on the set to make sure you shoot the film the way you agreed to. Normally in the filmmaking process, script changes are made all the time; if something isn’t working, they look at the rushes, and say, “let’s change this.” Well, if you want to change something that has to do with the military depictions, you’ve got to negotiate with them again. And they can say, “No, you can’t change it, this is the deal you agreed to.” As one of the technical advisors, Maj. David Georgi of the Army, said to me, “If they don’t do what I say, I take my toys and go away.”

After the film is completed, you have to prescreen the film for the Pentagon brass. So before it’s shown to the public, you have to show your movie to the generals and admirals, which I think any American should find objectionable — that their movies are being prescreened by the military.

MJ.com: At that stage, with the film finished, what can the military do if they have a problem?

DR: This happened on the Clint Eastwood movie “Heartbreak Ridge.” He finished the film, showed it to them, and they went through the roof. There was a scene in the script where he shoots an injured and defenseless Cuban soldier. They said, “You have to take that out. It’s a war crime. We don’t want that.” They hate having war crimes in movies. So with “Heartbreak Ridge,” Eastwood shot the film, and the scene ended up in the movie anyway. They said, “We told you to take that out.” He said he thought it was only a suggestion, that he didn’t know he had to. So they withdrew their approval. The film was still released, of course. But at the end of a movie that gets military assistance, there’s always a little tagline that says “thanks to the cooperation of the U.S. Army” or whatever branch. They said, “We’re not going to let you put that on there. We’re withdrawing cooperation.” And they can stop it from being shown in military theaters overseas or on bases in the U.S., which can really hurt the box office of a film. They’ve done this to numerous films. Also, at that time, Clint Eastwood was the chairman of Toys for Tots, the Marine Corps Christmas gift program for poor children. He wanted to screen the movie at a premiere to benefit Toys for Tots, and they said, “We’re not going to let you do that.” They can be very spiteful, they can hurt the box office of a film, and they don’t forget, either. So you do this at your peril. They can’t arrest you, they can’t stop the film. But if you want cooperation again, and you’ve screwed them like that before, you’re not going to get it. People almost never screw the Army on these deals.

MJ.com: What criteria does the Pentagon use in deciding whether to help a film?

DR: The most important one is that the film has to “aid in the retention and recruitment of personnel.” I don’t want to say that’s the whole thing, but it’s the main thing. They also say it has to reasonably depict military operations. And if it’s based on history, they say it has to be historically accurate, which is really a code. They’re much less interested in reality and accuracy than they are in positive images. They often try to change historical facts that are negative. Like with the movie “Thirteen Days,” which was very accurate but very negative toward the military during the Cuban missile crisis, showing that they would have taken us down the path toward World War III. During the negotiations with the producers, Peter Almond and Kevin Costner, the military tried to get them to tone down the bellicose nature of Gen. Maxwell Taylor and Gen. Curtis LeMay — who the record is very clear on, because before Nixon was taping in the White House, Kennedy was taping in the White House, and all the conversations from October 1962 are on tape. When Kennedy rejected LeMay’s insistence that we attack Cuba — when Kennedy said let’s put up a naval blockade, we don’t want to get into war — you can hear Curtis LeMay say, “This is the worst sellout since Munich.” He actually said that, when he didn’t think anybody was listening. Well, the military wanted to change it anyway, saying he was too bellicose and they had to tone it down. To their credit, Kevin Costner and Peter Almond stood up to the military, refused to buckle under, and made their film without military assistance.

MJ.com: Why don’t more producers take that approach?

DR: A lot of the studio heads tell their producers, “We’re not going to make this film unless we get military assistance, because it would be too expensive. So you’d better make sure the script conforms to what they want.” Also, what you don’t see in these documents is the self-censorship that goes with knowing you need their assistance and that they’re going to be your first audience. Writers write stuff to get that military assistance. So there’s no documents saying, “In “Black Hawk Down,” let’s leave out the whole part about the soldiers being dragged through the streets of Mogadishu.” Jerry Bruckheimer knows that if they have that in there, the military’s just going to tell them to take it out or they won’t help them. I asked Ridley Scott, the director, if “Black Hawk Down” could have been made without military assistance. He said, “Yeah. We just would have had to call it ‘Huey Down’.” So there’s this self-censorship. When you know the government is looking over your shoulder while you’re typing, that’s a very bad situation.

MJ.com: Aside from showing war crimes, what are some of the other things the military balks at?

DR: They never — at least that I’ve seen — help movies with aliens. Usually in those movies, the military is shown to be ineffective in combating the aliens, and it’s always some tricky, enterprising person who figures out how to defeat them. Like in “Mars Attacks!,” a grandma playing Slim Whitman over her radio blows the aliens’ heads up. Well, the military didn’t want to help them. They don’t want to help any movie that shows them being ineffective, even in combating aliens. They have no sense of humor! They wouldn’t help “Independence Day.” The military could not get over the fact that one of the key plot points was that the U.S. was secretly working on a spaceship captured at Area 51, so the film ended up not getting assistance.

Another thing, they don’t like drinking or drugs in the military. They’ll make you change that. Like in “Stripes,” they made them take out all drug references, and the original script had lots of drug references. They don’t want to see any pot smoking, even in Vietnam. The former Navy Secretary James Webb, after he left that post, he became a book writer. He’d been a Marine in Vietnam, and one of his books was semi-autobiographical, with many of the things he saw and knew for a fact happened in Vietnam: fragging of officers, smoking pot, burning Vietnamese villages. He had a screenplay and wanted to turn it into a movie. They said, “No, you have to change all this stuff,” and he wouldn’t do it. So that’s a film that never got made. Many films have never been made because they couldn’t get assistance.

MJ.com: In the book, you give examples of how the Pentagon won’t allow military characters to be depicted as bad guys.

DR: Right. For example, there was an HBO movie “The Tuskegee Airmen,” where the military made them replace the villain. This was a movie about the first black airmen during World War II, where the bad guy was a general at the base where these guys were training, and the good guy was a white congressman. Well, the army said they didn’t like that, so they ended up changing it. I have a letter where the producers wrote to the military, to Phil Strub, who’s the head of the Pentagon’s film office. The producers wrote, “The following changes are in the works and will soon be fully executed by the writer. It is our intention to reverse the characterization of General Stevenson and Senator Powell, making the senator the source of bigotry. General Stevenson will be revealed as someone who is loyal to the efforts of the Tuskegee Airmen.” Now when people saw that film, they had no idea that the good guy and the bad guy had been reversed, just so the military could meet its recruiting goals.

MJ.com: You also talk about the military targeting children by encouraging pro-military storylines in shows like “The Mickey Mouse Club” and “Lassie.”

DR: In those cases, they recognized that children are the future recruits. With the “Mickey Mouse Club,” it’s kind of a long story, but they used to show these little documentary films called “Mouse Reels.” For example, they took these kids out on the U.S.S. Nautilus, which was the first nuclear submarine. And there’s a Pentagon document that says, “This is an excellent opportunity to introduce a whole new generation to the nuclear Navy.” It was all military propaganda to show how “child-friendly” nuclear submarines are – there’s hardly any radiation, the food is great, they even have a jukebox that plays the “Mickey Mouse Club March” in the cafeteria.

As far as reaching children, I think one of the best examples — and they’re very candid in these documents, because I don’t think they ever expected anybody to be looking at this stuff — there was this movie “The Right Stuff” about the early days of the space program. The original script was filled with vulgarity and cussing, and the military sent the producers a letter. It reads, “The obscene language used seems to guarantee an ‘R’ rating. If distributed as an ‘R’, it cuts down on the teenage audience, which is a prime one to the military services when our recruiting bills are considered.” Of course, an ‘R’ rating means children under 17 have to be accompanied by a parent, so a lot of 16- and 17-year-olds couldn’t see this picture. And the Air Force wanted young people to see this so they’d get a good, positive image of the military and join up. So they changed it.

MJ.com: Among the films you looked at, which went through the most radical change from the script to the final, military-assisted movie?

DR: There was a movie called “Air Strike” by a guy named Cy Roth. Now, Ed Wood is often credited as being the worst director in Hollywood history, but Cy Roth would really give him a run for his money. Roth decided around 1953 that he’d made a Western, he’d made a space movie, now he wanted to make a war movie. This movie was set on a World War II aircraft carrier, and the lead characters were a young Jewish flyer and a young black flyer who are constantly being subjected to anti-Semitism and racism on the ship. The military said, “No, we don’t want to show any kind of racism or anti-Semitism in this picture, you’ve got to change that.” They also said, “We don’t want a World War II-era picture, we want a movie set in the modern jet age.” And Roth went nuts. He called his congressman, he wrote a letter to President Eisenhower — and the day after the White House got his letter of complaint, they sicced the FBI on him to see whether he was a Communist or not. Well, he finally caved in; he made the picture the way they wanted. So it was no blacks, no Jews, no propellers. If you look at this film, it’s so bad, it looks like a home movie shot on an aircraft carrier. So this film was completely changed.

MJ.com: You argue that this military screening process violates the First Amendment.

DR: The First Amendment doesn’t just give people the right to free speech; fundamentally, it prevents the government from favoring one form of speech over another. There’s a great 1995 Supreme Court case called Rosenberger v. University of Virginia that says, “Discrimination against speech because of its message is presumed to be unconstitutional. It is axiomatic that the government may not regulate speech based on the substantive content of the message it conveys. In the realm of private speech or expression, government regulation may not favor one speaker over another.” And yet that’s what they’re doing every day. Not just 50 years ago on “Air Strike,” but right now. This is a holdover from the Cold War, and it should be abolished. Or at least Congress, which has oversight over the Pentagon, should really look into what’s going on.

Congress has only looked into it twice, when Robert Aldrich made a stink about not getting assistance for the movie “Attack,” and then again in the 1960s when it turned out the government had footed the entire bill for all the military stuff on John Wayne’s “The Green Berets.” In these two investigations, the Pentagon basically said it’s not their intention to influence the content of movies. And Congress just accepted that. If they looked at these documents, they would see that clearly the intent is to influence the movies.

Major Georgi, who had been the military minder on many movies, said that one of the targets of this program is Congress; that Congress goes to movies, and that when they see positive images of the military, that makes it easier for them to vote for that $500 billion military appropriation. They also target voters, the people who are really footing the bill. Really, if you talk to soldiers and sailors and Marines, many of them will tell you they joined the military because of some movie that they saw. The former head of the Marine Corps film office, Matt Morgan, he told me he joined the military after seeing “Top Gun.” After “Top Gun” came out, there was a huge spike in recruitment for the Navy flying program. They know that it works. People are going off to war and getting killed, in part because of some movie that they saw that was adjusted by the military.

MJ.com: What would it realistically take to change this system?

DR: I think that if just 50 people wrote their congressman and asked, “what’s going on here?,” I think it wouldn’t take much. It’s not going to happen otherwise. The Writer’s Guild, whose stated mission is to protect the creative and economic rights of its members, has never made a single protest that its members’ scripts are being manipulated and changed by the military. Congress has done nothing. Hollywood likes the way it is, and the military likes the way it is; they don’t want to change it. The only people who have a real interest in this are the American people. They’re being saturated with military propaganda in their mainstream movies and TV shows, and they don’t even know. But I think there’s a very good argument that can be made that over the past 50 years, this chronic sanitization of the military and what war is has affected the American character; that we’re now a more warlike people than we were 50 years ago. Clearly, there are also other reasons, but I think when the world’s most powerful medium colludes with the world’s most powerful military to put propaganda in mainstream films and television shows, that has to have an effect on the American psyche.

Benjamin Fulford – Surrender of the Cabal?

benjamin_fulford_smile_smirk79Thanks, Galactic Human! This is one of Ben’s more inspirational updates. About halfway down, he itemizes half a dozen items that a post-cabal Japan could look like. I don’t know about you, but to me, it sounds an awful lot like NESARA/GESARA. If it’s true, this is very exciting! -LW

Anybody who understands finance and geopolitics can now see clearly the Nazi/Zionist cabal faces the mathematical certainty of defeat. It is also very clear the United States is on the brink of revolution. That is why cabal representatives have begun negotiating surrender with the White Dragon Society and their allies.

The surrender terms being offered by the WDS will be detailed below but first let us review the latest indications of cabal defeat.

First of all the deaths of, and attacks on, senior cabalists continue. Nazi/Zionist banker Emilio Botin, Chairman of Santander Bank, the second biggest bank in the Euro area, died suddenly on September 9th or 10th (see MI5 comments about him at end of article). Also the King of Sweden, one of the last cabal monarchs to cling to his throne, nearly died last week in an automobile “accident.”

Then Skull and Bones murderer and US corporate government Secretary of State John Kerry was ridiculed on live TV about ISIS while insulting signs were held up behind him.

http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-TV/2014/09/17/Corker-Slams-Obama-Kerry-for-Exercising-The-Worst-Judgment-Possible-on-ISIS

This was followed by cabal propaganda outlet the New York Times putting out a story saying that ISIS was a creation of the CIA. Then armed intruders broke into the White House twice last week. None of these events could have taken place without senior agency and Pentagon backing.

cabal defeat

That is probably why representatives of the Rothschild family, the North Koreans, Japanese politicians, and the US military industrial complex all contacted the White Dragon Society last week. Although they each raised separate issues, they all wanted to know what sort of post-cabal regime to expect. The representatives of the Rothschilds, the North Koreans and the Japanese politicians offered to help with the creation of a post-Abe regime in Japan. They were told the Japanese Revolutionary Party, with which this writer is affiliated, has the following agenda:

First, nationalize the Bank of Japan and start issuing government currency to replace BOJ debt notes.
Second, stage a jubilee to write off all debts, public and private.

Third, redistribute wealth by giving all people who live in rental units ownership of those properties. Landlords would continue receiving the equivalent of their rental income in the form of government money. Also, all Japanese assets fraudulently obtained by cabalists would be nationalized and put in a fund to be managed on behalf of the Japanese people

powerofpeople
Fourth, Japan would stop financing cabal controlled institutions like the UN, the World Bank and the IMF until they were either totally revamped or replaced with truly representative institutions.

Fifth, Japan would continue to finance the US military and agencies but only on the condition they helped preside over the bankruptcy and restructuring of the corporate government in the United States. This would include presiding over a transition of the military industrial complex into a life affirming benevolent entity.

Sixth, a truth commission will be established to uncover the crimes, including 311, carried out against the Japanese people by the US post-war occupation government.

The Military Industrial complex representative was also interested in what the WDS had to say about disclosure concerning extra-terrestrial contact. They were told the WDS agreed there was overwhelming evidence some sort of civilization with superior technology was watching over this planet. However, since the current leadership of the West consists of mass murderers, it is obvious any superior civilization would put this planet under quarantine. The WDS believes open contact with off-world civilization will begin when the genocidal cabal has been neutralized.

They were also told that what was going on in this planet was very much like a giant mathematical calculation where plus and minus elements were cancelling each other out. This can be taken either literally or, as a metaphor of the changing power balance on this planet.

From this perspective, the negative side murdered hundreds of millions of people during the 20th century through war, disease and starvation. However, in the 21st century a far lower number of one or two million was killed in Iraq. Also, attempts to kill 90% of the world’s population through starvation and pandemics by the post-911 US fascist Nazionist regime have failed. More recently, the failed effort to start World War 3 in the Ukraine resulted in “only” a few thousand deaths. The ebola bio-weapons and fear mongering campaign being pushed by cabal institutions like the UN, the World Health Organization and the World Bank is producing at the most hundreds of deaths if that.

On the starvation front, while close to one billion people are malnourished, there have been no famines since 2012 and developing countries are thriving.

It is clear the positive side is winning but that the final moment, when the equal button is pushed and a massive campaign to end poverty, stop environmental destruction and start an age of unprecedented prosperity and progress, has not yet been reached.

This depends on the ongoing financial war. On that front, the demise of the Cabal petro-dollar is becoming increasingly obvious. First of all, none of the oil producing countries in the Middle East supports the Obama governments’ bizarre ISIS campaign. This means the oil producing countries of the Middle East no longer support the Federal Reserve Board cabals’ petro-dollar or the Obama regime. This is most likely why The Rockefeller Brothers Fund announced last week they were getting out of the oil business and into renewable energy.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/22/us/heirs-to-an-oil-fortune-join-the-divestment-drive.html?_r=0

It may also be why a French bank issued a report last week saying $100 billion invested in renewable energy would produce four times more energy than the same amount of money invested in oil.

http://www.impactlab.net/2014/09/18/100b-invested-in-wind-or-solar-will-produce-more-energy-than-oil/

It seems the rats are bailing out of the petro-dollar ship.

Also last week the French government joined the Germans and the British in setting up Chinese yuan based trading in their own financial markets.

http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/china/2014-09/15/c_133644738.htm

Furthermore, China set up a Yuan based gold futures trading market that will be open to foreigners and restricted to physical gold. Since China accounts for one third of world physical gold demand, and Asia two thirds, this market has a good chance of taking over price setting for gold from exchanges in the US and London. Sister markets will soon start in Hong Kong and Singapore as well. This move comes as the Rothschild family has already quit the gold business and the London gold market is under investigation for price fixing.

http://articles.economictimes.indiatimes.com/2014-09-18/news/54068363_1_shanghai-gold-exchange-gold-contracts-pricing-power

However, the Chinese are not going to use a gold backed Yuan to replace the petro-dollar but will instead link their currency to a basket of commodities and other national currencies, Chinese government officials say.

Although many in the West are impatient for a big sudden change, the Chinese know that time is on their side. All they have to do is make sure nobody is fooled into starting a planet destroying war and wait for their strength to increase while that of the West withers away. Unless the West acts decisively on its own to reboot their economic and political systems, they will just continue to watch helplessly as the BRICS inexorably leave them behind.

However, if the West reboots itself, it will benefit from an age of exponential progress that will make the agricultural and industrial revolutions seem like the first tentative steps taken by a toddler. What are we waiting for?

Note on fascist financier Emilio Botin and Bank Santandar by MI5 official:

The passing of Emilio Botin, Executive Chairman of Santander Bank Group is interesting. He is variously reported to have died on the 9th or 10th September, unexpectedly of a heart attack. His profile is of the classic second generation Nazi banker with links to the Vatican, right-wing post war leaders and rapid growth in South America. Santander is the tenth largest bank in the world, the second largest in Europe and half of its’ earnings come from South America. But somehow, Botin evaded the spotlight.

The bank was originally a small regional operation for traders in Santander, a port on the northern coast in the region of Cantabria, Spain. It expanded rapidly in the 1960’s and 1970’s in South America; Argentina and Brazil especially. In fact, the bank did so well under the fascists Peron in Argentina and Franco in Spain that it emerged from the 1970’s financial crisis with a business model of expansion by predatory acquisition. It took maximum advantage of its EU membership in the process. The Botin family held secret accounts in Switzerland opened in 1937 and discovered by the authorities in 2010. The family also used a settlement of 200 million Euros to appease the Spanish tax authorities.

Santander was the scene of much Nazi activity during and post WWII, including submarine trips from the coast between Vigo and Santander for Nazi VIP’s in the “ratlines” operations running to Argentina. The WWII chief of MI6, Sir Stewart Menzies, is known to have met Admiral Canaris, chief of the Nazi underground, in Santander during the war in a hotel which Botin subsequently purchased, the Hotel Real. Santander bank financed the growing Gladio (false flag) operations. The Gladio training was organized by senior Nazi leader Otto Skorzeny and his Palladin group in Alicante, Spain starting in the 1970’s.

Are You Ready for the Avalanche of 9/11 Fear-Mongering and DisInfo?

We’ve already heard from a couple of retired US Generals express their opinions about what they consider Obama’s reluctance to raise the national security alert to DEFCON 1. Followed by reports of missing aircraft in Libya.

Now, we’ve got FoxNews posting & retracting ISIS threats for 9/11/2014. With stuff like this floating around, it appears that the powers that were are using “truthers” to do their fear-mongering for them.

There have actually been rumblings in Dinarland that what is happening in Iraq right now is a weapons “fire sale” of sorts. The arms dealers are selling everything they’ve got, before they are put out of business, PERMANENTLY. (and no, there are no links) Do you see the polarity here?

Also, why isn’t the media talking about the trial of the George W. Bush administration, which begins on September 11th, 2014?

Have no fears about what 9/11 holds, this year. We were caught off-guard in 2001, unaware that they were trying to stop the NESARA announcement by Alan Greenspan AND distract us from Donald Rumsfeld’s statement that the Pentagon had lost $3.2 trillion dollars, the day before. This time, the world is watching. They may be trying to confuse us with disinfo, but we are watching, and they know it.

September 9th is the next and last super moon of 2014, and the closing of the latest energy portal, which is supposed to represent purification, fertility, and abundance for all. So, in contrast to the 9/11/2014 fear-mongering, I present to you the possibility that the Dinar RV will happen on September 9th. Which is more likely to actually happen?

Pentagon’s top-secret hypersonic weapon explodes in mystery Alaska fireball: Flaming missile that can hit anywhere on Earth in an hour lights up the sky for hundreds of miles around | Mail Online

This news begs the question: Was there off-world intervention to stop this missile? There is a plethora of reports describing “non-military” craft monitoring and/or interfering with nuclear installations. More recently, reports of on-going electrical problems at the NSA’s super-computer surveillance facility in Utah. Call it angelic intervention, if you prefer. What say you? -LW

  • Rocket carrying an experimental Army strike weapon exploded early Monday after taking off from a launch pad in Alaska
  • Kodiak photographer Scott Wight watched the launch from Cape Greville in Chiniak
  • Weapon able to travel at speeds of up to 3,500mph and strike anywhere on Earth in hours

A top-secret weapon being developed by the US military was destroyed four seconds after its launch from a test range in Alaska early on Monday after controllers detected a problem with the system, the Pentagon said.
The Advanced Hypersonic Weapon is part of a program to create a missile that will destroy targets anywhere on Earth within hours – traveling at speeds in excess of 3,500 miles-an-hour or Mach 5.
The mission was aborted to ensure public safety, and no one was injured in the incident, which occurred shortly after 4 am EDT at the Kodiak Launch Complex in Alaska, said Maureen Schumann, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Defense Department.
‘We had to terminate,’ Schumann said. ‘The weapon exploded during takeoff and fell back down in the range complex,’ she added.
The incident caused an undetermined amount of damage to the launch facility 25 miles from the city of Kodiak, Schumann said.

Say It Ain’t So (And Mean It)

Another enjoyable and creative stating of the all too obvious from Gillian at ShiftFrequency. Thanks so much. 

It’s a reminder that all of this is too absurd for words, but somehow Gillian always manages to round up the best ones to display our last days in this deplorable density with mirror-finish clarity.  ~ BP

 

Say It Ain’t So (And Mean It)

Words are inadequate to communicate the degree to which Earth is controlled by cabal forces untainted by human decency, fellow-feeling, justice and morality. Making matters worse their tyrannical agenda is running out of time. In fact they have no time left for pretense. It’s falling apart too rapidly to offer such niceties as factual evidence for any of their claims.

That’s right. Never mind facts and evidence. Just “trust us.” And if you absolutely think you need proof for our assertions, the US State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf advises you to visit Facebook and Youtube.

“All of Harf’s comments assigning blame to eastern Ukrainian separatists so far rests entirely on the alleged veracity of “YouTube clips” and “Facebook posts.” Harf left no room for the possibility that the evidence she is hinging her comments on may be fabrications, taken out of context, or otherwise inaccurate.” http://www.globalresearch.ca/assigning-blame-to-east-ukraine-rebels-us-appeals-to-law-of-the-jungle-in-mh17-case/5392797

I could wallow in the week that was, but that serves no useful purpose. None who read Shift Frequency and other alternative media are unaware of what’s taking place. We are witnessing the death throes of a system so corrupt it collapses into its footprint, just like those blown-up towers that initiated this downward planetary spiral 13 years ago.

Remember those towers?

Humanity witnessed two objects fly into two huge buildings that subsequently collapsed with freefall precision into their foundations. The physical implausibility of that feat still escapes the majority. But then as now the twin towers were the diversion that hid the miraculous implosion of Building 7.

Building 7 managed—without being hit by a single plane—to disintegrate neatly into its footprint. If you’re wondering what Building 7 housed:

“[a]t the time of its destruction, it exclusively housed government agencies and financial institutions. It contained offices of the IRS, Secret Service, and SEC.” http://www.wtc7.net/background.html

Then as now the true agenda occurred behind smoke screens. In the wake of 911 the $2.1 trillion Pentagon budget shortfall announced September 10th by Donald Rumsfeld got eclipsed by the narrative of falling towers and thousands of dead victims.

That’s how the game is played.

2014 Is 911 On Steroids

The one truism that accurately describes the cabal’s agenda is that it is monotonously repetitive. Some might say it is this way because humanity is so mired in stupidity the same trick bears repeating over and over and over again because it always works.

But no more. Seemingly all of a sudden everything’s gone haywire. The one-trick pony isn’t performing. What to do? Ramp up the craziness everywhere. Blow up planes, kill women and children, foment war by any means necessary, release lab-created plagues, overwhelm financial systems, murder mid-level bankers, unleash killer mosquitoes, destroy organic farms and produce, wage weather war, spew chemtrails, then steal all the money in bank accounts and pension plans via bail-ins.

These controllers are so unhinged even now they anticipate vast rewards for their derelict and duplicitous service. They envision more and greater—more control and greater wealth concentration.

Yet it is as Chautauqua states:

“Sleazy Come ~ Sleazy Go”

“The power elite have been on stage running things for a very long time; too long really, and as more are seeing every day, their time is drawing to a close. Now of course they have no dignity, honor, or even souls to speak of ~ so they don’t want to give up all the power & just fade into history. That is why things worldwide have taken a sharp turn towards the crapper recently.

“They are desperate. In their arrogance, our keepers thought that chemtrails and other repressive technologies would prevent humanity from evolving into a higher state of consciousness. They sought to arrest human development below the threshold of evolution. They wanted to keeps us in kindergarten. They failed just as surely as if they’d tried to swim up a waterfall. It’s not nice to mess with evolution, which they’re now discovering.

“So, the keepers are throwing a big tizzy fit just now, setting the world on fire, trying to provoke that nuclear war they want so badly; a last ditch effort, made in desperation, predestined to fail.

“Tyranny always fails, when will they learn? No matter how long it takes, tyrants are always overthrown…but then we forget, and allow new tyrants to do it all over again. Why do you suppose that is? What if every voice on earth said “No More” in unison & in 3- part harmony, what would happen then? Suppose every last one of us got terminally tired of this matrix at the same moment, then dumped it.

“Evolution baby!”

Intriguing Crop Circle at Besford, near Pershore, Worcestershire, UK from June 14th

Thanks to Extraterrestrials.ning.com for sharing.

I had to share this one. I haven’t looked at anyone else’s interpretations at all—but I see a pentaGON and a pentaGRAM, with  a TARGET on them! Just sayin’…

And what came to me next was… American military insignias include the star and circles, and of course, Navy Intelligence is in the Pentagon, and precisely where the cruise missile hit on 911 where they were doing the major investigation about the 3.5 Trillion and that was one reason the cabal created 911—to prevent it coming out, wasn’t it. Uh-huh.

(BTW, if you read the page at the link above, you’ll see some juicy correspondence about that 911 hit on the Pentagon, between people who know what’s REALLY going on in the White House.)

A reader says the link above isn’t working, but I suspect it was a spam comment. Here’s the link itself.  http://cassiopaea.org/forum/index.php?topic=7182.5;wap2

Of course, other countries use different coloured circles on their aircraft, so there’s that element, too, and Indonesia uses the pentagram.  Here’s a link to those. http://www.aircraft-insignia.com/page13.htm  ~ BP
