After the Second World War ended, The Vatican, the CIA, the ex-Nazis, and the Sicilian/American Mafia forged an alliance to fight the Cold War against the former Soviet Union and the rising pro-Soviet governments in Europe and the rest of the world.

In a new book, Paul L. Williams offers new and disturbing evidence to expose what he calls the unholy alliance. Operation Gladio is likely to be a controversial book and may even be contested by several quarters. However, it would be difficult to reject the evidence author Paul L. Williams has provided.

The story started as early as 1942 with the formation of the Vatican Bank. The same year ONI (Office of Naval Intelligence) recruited Lucky Luciano, a pre-eminent drug lord. The Swiss director of the US Office of Strategic Services (OSS) Allen Dulles came to the conclusion, “We’re fighting the wrong enemy.” Schutzstaffel (SS) sent Dulles a message through the Vatican that the Nazi government wanted to establish a separate peace with the United States; they wanted to fight the Soviets. Dulles met Prince Max von Hohenlohe in Bern. Hohenlohe found Dulles in agreement with him. Later, Dulles also met other Nazi officials to forge the new alliance. Chief of Special Intelligence for the OSS in China Col. Paul E Helliwell thought of another unholy alliance between the US intelligence community and organized crime groups. Consequently, the US intelligence agencies got drug lord Lucky Luciano released from jail, allowed him to build his narcotic empire, and simply watched the flow of drugs into the largely black ghettos of New York and Washington. The unholy alliance of the American spies and criminals was replicated everywhere, from Laos and Burma to Marseilles and Panama.

After Richard Nixon became president in 1969, the strategy of tension gained more impetus.  National Adviser Henry Kissinger issued orders to Licio Gelli to carry out terror attacks and coup attempts. The United States and the Vatican channeled millions of dollars for these operations. Most of the money was raised in questionable ways. The first major attack in Europe took place on December 12, 1969 when a bomb went off in the lobby of Banca Nazionale Dell’ Agricoltura in Milan, Italy. Seventeen people died in the explosion. Within an hour, three bombs exploded in Rome. According to official figures, 14,591 acts of violence with a political motivation took place between January 1, 1969 and December 31, 1987. In these terror attacks, 491 people died and 1,181 were injured. A large number of terror attacks took place in other European countries from 1965 to 1981. After a series of assassination attempts to kill French President De Gaulle failed, he denounced “the secret warfare of the Pentagon” and expelled the European headquarters of NATO.

In the Latin America, the CIA and the Vatican launched Operation Condor as the Latin American version of the Operation Gladio. The label was applied very liberally by the US intelligence agencies that “any government risked being so labeled if it advocated nationalization of private industry (particularly foreign-owned corporations), radical land reform, autarkic trade policies, acceptance of soviet aid, or an anti-American foreign policy.” The CIA and the Vatican started Operation Condor in the early 1970s when Opus Dei elicited support from Chilean bishops for the overthrow of the government of President Allende. The Catholic group was closely working with the CIA-funded organizations such as the Fatherland and Liberty, which was later turned into the dreaded Chilean secret police. “In 1971, the CIA began shelling out millions to the Chilean Institute for General Studies (IGS), an Opus Dei think tank, for the planning of the revolution.” Many members of the IGS joined the government after the coup. Hernan Cubillos became the foreign minister. He was the founder of Que Pasa, an OPUS Dei magazine, and publisher of El Mercurio, the largest newspaper in Santiago which was subsidized by the CIA.

Williams shows that the Vatican was fully involved in Operation Condor. The Pope was fully behind the purging of the left wing clerics; leaders of the military junta were devout Catholics. The Vatican did not abandon General Pinochet even when he was arrested in Britain for the murder of thousands of Chileans. Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Angelo Sodano wrote to the British government on behalf of the Pope to demand his release. Under Pinochet, hundreds of thousands Chileans had disappeared while more than four thousands had died. More than fifty thousand Chileans were tortured in the name of Catholic god. CIA’s dirty war was perpetuated in many Latin American countries with the help and blessing of the Vatican.

Williams quotes FBI whistle blower Sibel Edmonds who said,

“Between 1996 and 2002, we, the United States, planned, financed, and helped execute every major terrorist incident by Chechen rebels (and the Mujahideen) against Russia. Between 1996 and 20002, we, the United States, planned, financed, and helped execute every single uprising and terror related scheme in Xinjiang (aka East Turkistan and Uyhurstan). Between 1996 and 2002, we, the United States, planned and carried out at least two assassination schemes against pro-Russian officials in Azerbaijan.”

Operation Gladio is a highly well-researched book with some 1,100 endnotes and footnotes. This work is highly rich in details. It is an estimable scholarly and intellectual accomplishment which is unrivaled. His scholarly work fills a major lacuna in the study of the US foreign policy which was left by scholars such as Alfred McCoy, Peter Dale Scot, Martin A. Lee, Dale Yallop, and Sibel Edmonds.

The history of Wall Street’s unspoken relationship to Nazi Germany: dragon teeth to be planted all over Europe again

Questions:

  • Do modern Germany and perhaps other NATO allies still want Lebensraum (“living space”) and the “conquest of Lebensraum”? The land grabs underway in Africa and Asia demonstrate that this issue hasn’t gone away, and Russia is so much closer.
  • Do Germany and European “elites” still regard Russia as Slavic Untermenschen (sub-humans)? These are the sentiments of the Kiev regime and its partners. Those sentiments don’t bother the United States, Britain, Canada, Poland, or the other allies or their respective mass media. The genocide/ethnic cleansing directed against Russian speakers and others in Ukraine takes place without any condemnation by those allies, and is in fact being facilitated by those allies. That raises questions about how widespread these sentiments are.

Many media outlets compare the contemporary situation in Europe with the days before WWII. I would like to make an important correction here. Now we are watching the West fostering another Nazi regime represented by Kiev junta and it makes remember the second half of the 1930s when it did the very same thing cooperating with Germany turned into a fascist state.

Of course, the Ukraine we know today cannot measure up to Hitler’s Germany. But the first blow is half the battle. The running amok Fuhrer started as an unknown corporal preaching xenophobia and revenge.

It’s an open secret that Adolf Hitler was supported by the United States. The US penetration was significant, especially its cooperation with the German war industry. By 1933 the United States controlled key branches of Germany’s economy, as well as several large banks such as Deutsche Bank, Dresdner Bank, etc.

Big business started to trust Hitler. Those were the days of affluence for the National Socialist German Workers’ Party as funds from abroad began to pour in. Thanks to large donations from Fritz Thyssen’s group including the United Steelworks (Vereinigte Stahlwerke AG), I.G. Farbenindustrie AG (Interessen-Gemeinschaft Farbenindustrie AG) and mining industry tycoon Emil Kirdorf the party received 6,4 million votes to become the second largest in the Reichstag (parliament). Hjalmar Schacht (22 January 1877 – 3 June 1970), a German economist, banker, liberal politician, and co-founder in 1918 of the German Democratic Party, became the key connecting link between German industry and foreign donors.

British business and banking interests also started to channel donations to the Nazi party. On January 4, 1932 Montague Norman, the Governor of the Bank of England from 1920 to 1944, met Hitler and German Chancellor Franz von Papen to conclude a secret accord on providing funds for the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. The US was also represented at this meeting. Both Dulles brothers were present. Western historians shy away from mentioning the fact. John Foster Dulles and Allen Dulles were politically connected Wall Street lawyers, servants of corporate power, who led the United States into an unseen war that decisively shaped today’s world.

It is worth noting, that during the 1950s, when the Cold War was at its peak, the two immensely powerful Dulles brothers led the United States into a series of foreign adventures whose effects are still shaking the world. John Foster Dulles was Secretary of State while his brother, Allen Dulles, was director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

Federal elections were held in Germany on 5 March 1933. As a result of lavish donations coming in from abroad, the ruling Nazi Party led by Adolf Hitler, who was appointed Chancellor on January 30, 1933, registered a large increase in votes emerging as the largest party by far. Nevertheless they failed to obtain an absolute majority in their own right and needed the votes of their coalition partner, the German National People’s Party (DNVP), for a Reichstag majority.

The new German government was treated extremely favorably by US and UK ruling circles. Western democracies kept silent when Berlin refused to pay reparations. Hjalmar Schacht, President of the Reichsbank and Minister of Economics, went to the United States in May 1933 to meet President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and leading Wall Street bankers. Germany was granted a $1 billion credit. And in June, during a visit to Norman in London, Schacht requested an addition $2 billion in loans as well as a reduction and eventual cessation of payment on old loans. Thus, the Nazis got something that the previous government could not.

In the summer of 1934, Britain signed the Anglo-German Transfer Agreement, which became one of the foundations of British policy towards the Third Reich, and by the end of the 1930′s, Germany developed into Britain’s primary trading partner. Schroeder’s bank turned into Germany and Great Britain’s main agent, and in 1936, its New York branch merged with a Rockefeller holding to create the investment bank «Schroeder, Rockefeller and Co.», which the New York Times described as «economic-propagandist axis of Berlin-Rome».

The ‘Secret Memorandum’ was issued by Adolf Hitler in August 1936. The memorandum went out only to a few senior Nazi leaders and its contents – information about the Four-Year Plan – was formally announced to the party’s faithful in September 1936 at the party rally in Nuremberg. The Secret Memorandum stated that in four years Germany was to develop capable combat-ready armed forces and its economy was to be mobilized to meet the needs of war. As he admitted to himself, Hitler viewed foreign credit as the financial basis for his four-year plan, so this didn’t raise the slightest alarm.

In August 1934, American oil giant Standard Oil purchased 730,000 acres of land in Germany and built large oil refineries that supplied the Nazis with oil. At the same time, the United States secretly provided Germany with the most modern equipment for its airplane factories, which were slated to produce Germany’s military aircraft.

In turn, Germany received a large number of patents from several American companies including Pratt and Whitney, Douglas, and the Bendix Corporation, and the “Junkers-87″ dive-bomber was built using purely American technology. As the war broke out, the monopolies stuck to the good old tried-and-true rule – nothing personal, only business. By 1941, when the Second World War was in full swing, American investment in the German economy totaled $475 million: Standard Oil invested $120 million alone, General Motors — $35 million, ITT — $30 million, and Ford — $17.5 million.

What motivated the interest of Western business in the growing might of Nazi Germany?

The goal was to direct Hitler to the East involving a German invasion of Russia. The conquest of Lebensraum («living space») was for Hitler and the rest of the National Socialists the most important German foreign policy goal. At his first meeting with the leading Generals and Admirals of the Reich («Empire») on February 3, 1933, Hitler spoke of “conquest of Lebensraum” in the East and ruthless ‘Germanization’ as his two ultimate foreign policy objectives.

For Hitler, the land which would provide sufficient Lebensraum for Germany was the Soviet Union, which in Hitler eyes was both a nation that possessed vast and rich agricultural land and was inhabited by what Hitler considered as Slavic Untermenschen (sub-humans) ruled over by what he regarded as a gang of blood-thirsty, but grossly incompetent “Jewish revolutionaries”. These people were not “Germanizable” in his eyes; only the soil was.

The US and Britain, which were firmly opposed to the rise of Communism in the Soviet Union, tacitly endorsed Hitler’s “conquest of Lebensraum” in the East, as initially stated in Mein Kampf:

“We National Socialists consciously draw a line under the direction of our foreign policy war. We begin where we ended six centuries ago. We stop the perpetual Germanic march towards the south and west of Europe, and have the view on the country in the east. We finally put the colonial and commercial policy of the pre-war and go over to the territorial policy of the future. But if we speak today in Europe of new land, we primarily point to Russia and the border states”

In turn, the policy of appeasement was implemented by Western countries in the 1930s against a background of financial and economic cooperation of Anglo-American business interests with Nazi Germany.

In October 1930, Germany withdrew from both the Conference for the Reduction and Limitation of Armaments of 1932–1934 (sometimes named the World Disarmament Conference or Geneva Disarmament Conference) and the League of Nations.

In March 1936, Hitler ordered his troops to openly re-enter the Rhineland which had been demilitarized under the Versailles Treaty.

In March 1938 Austria was annexed.

The West did not react.

Fall Grün (Operation Green), a German military plan to occupy Czechoslovakia, was approved by Hitler in December 1937. The execution of Operation Green was called off after the Munich Pact was concluded between England, France, Italy and Nazi Germany on September 30, 1938.

While Hitler signed the Munich agreement along with Arthur Neville Chamberlain, Édouard Daladier and Benito Mussolini,  the operation to invade Czechoslovakia prevailed. On October 21 he ordered to start preparations for the military annexation of the rest of Czechoslovakia and the Klaipeda Region (also known as the Memel Territory) which had been part of Lithuania since 1923.

In March 1939, Germany delivered an ultimatum to Poland demanding renegotiation of the Danzig agreement. The Polish Corridor (also known as Danzig Corridor, Corridor to the Sea or Gdansk Corridor) was a territory located in the region of Pomerelia (eastern Pomerania, formerly part of West Prussia), which provided the Second Republic of Poland (1920–1939) with access to the Baltic Sea, thus dividing the bulk of Germany from the province of East Prussia. The Free city of Danzig (now the Polish city of Gdansk) was separate from both Poland and Germany.

But Memel and Danzig were not the ultimate goal of Nazi Germany. Adolph Hitler was fully aware that nobody in the West had any intention to stand in his way. On April 1939 he secretly ordered Poland to be attacked on September 1.

With the seizure of Czechoslovakia, Hitler’s duel-track policy was an open secret even for the most shortsighted politicians and diplomats. The Soviet Union still cherished hope to build a collective system of security in Europe. It managed to make London and Paris start talks on creating a really effective alliance to counter the aggressor. But these talks were to reveal that the Western partners were reluctant to hinder Hitler’s expansionary policy to the East. Sir Alexander Cadogan (Permanent Under-Secretary at the Foreign Office) cited Chamberlain saying he would rather resign the premiership than conclude an agreement with the Soviets.

When Germany attacked Poland and the Second World War started, Western leaders pointed their finger at both the Soviet Union and Germany which signed the Non-Aggression Pact of August 23, 1939. Supported by a choir of propaganda, they said it was not the Western appeasement policy, but rather the USSR-Germany Non-Aggression Pact which triggered the war.

In the wake of World War II, neither London, nor Washington, nor Paris want to hear the truth about these historical events. They signed the Nuremberg Trial verdict that found Germany guilty of grave crimes and violations of international law and the laws of war, without acknowledging who was behind Nazi Germany?  The political and financial elites of the United States, Great Britain and France were directly involved in fostering Nazi regime. They incited Hitler to move east.

The West has never recognized its responsibility for supporting Hitler’s regime.

In today’s context, it has done its utmost to prevent Russia’s return on the world stage as a leading actor.

Today it is fostering the ulcer of Nazism and xenophobia emerging right in front of our very eyes. To hide the truth it circulates the Washington-invented and Europe-inculcated story about “Russian aggression” against Ukraine.

Russia is demonized and provoked into direct confrontation with a view to triggering its involvement in Ukraine’s internal conflict.

While the Kiev junta is not “in the same league” as Germany’s Nazi regime, history shows that the ulcer of Nazism combined with the thrust of Russophobia is gaining momentum. And sooner or later it may be beyond the control of those who encouraged it in the first place.

The slogan “Ukraine above all” sounds  very much like a remake of Nazi Germany’s “Deutschland über alles”, (Germany above all). “Ukraine above all”  is being used to justify the crimes committed by Ukraine forces in Novorossiya.

Ukraine Neo-Nazis Trained by NATO to Commit Atrocities: NATO’s ‘Gladio’ Army in Ukraine

VIDEO on website

The openly Nazi core of Kiev’s new army; WikiLeaked cables set Ukraine ‘nationalists’ in NATO ‘dirty wars’ abroad; and the ‘psychopaths’ who run CIA special operations.

Seek truth from facts with the world’s leading scholar on NATO’s Operation Gladio Dr. Daniele Ganser; Editor of new book Flashpoint in Ukraine – Dr. Stephen Lendman; Intelligence specialist William Engdahl; and victims of the Butcher of Lyon.

This is a rush transcript. Copy may not be in its final form.

RT: NATO’s Operation Gladio has moved into Ukraine according to US intelligence reports. Coming up.

Announcer: The openly Nazi base of Kiev’s new army.

WikiLeaked cables by the US ambassador.

And the “psychopaths” of CIA special operations.

Barack Obama: Proved once again that the United States of America is and will remain the greatest force for freedom the world has ever known.

RT: Obama hit a new high this month claiming the US were the main liberators against the Nazis. NSNBC reports that in reality World War 2 never ended.

While publicly, the White House demanded “full denazification” to charge those responsible for the Holocaust. Privately, even as the war against fascism was still raging, the White House was creating what it called “ratlines” to America for tens of thousands of Nazis despite them being classed as a “menace” to US security.

Hotel Terminus documentary:

Interviewer: You are the man responsible for hiring Barbie?

Sgt. Robert Taylor: Yes

RT: The White House created new identities for Nazi mass murderers like Klaus Barbie and deleted the records of their crimes, such as waterboarding.

Lise Leserve, tortured and family murdered by Klaus Barbie: The torture chamber had manacles with the spikes facing in, dangling chains, weird harnesses. Soon Klaus Barbie arrived. They held my nose, choked me with water, I thought my lungs would burst. Then came the questions. When Barbie pulled the chain, I went all the way under. He’d hang up his big watch to keep it dry. This lasted two hours, then Barbie said: “Since you won’t talk, we’ll get your husband and son”. He tortured my 16-year-old. My husband and son never returned.

RT: Known as the Butcher of Lyon, Barbie was accused of executing 4,000 and shipping 7,000 Jews to concentration camps.

The US first hired him directly then sent him to create the “fiancés of death”, hit squads that taught torture to military juntas.

Hermann Becker-Freysing, Siegfried Ruff, Konrad Schaefer and Kurt Blome were all charged with “gruesome experiments” on Jews at concentration camps. All were admitted to the United States.

They’re just some of an estimated 30,000 Nazi war criminals brought to America.

Many more were activated in Europe. Decades of bombings that have kept Europe in a state of terror are actually the work of Nazis recruited by the White House, top-level officials in government and the CIA confirmed. Former CIA head Bill Colby calls Gladio, as the campaign is codenamed, a “major operation”.

Attacks like the Taksim Square massacre in Istanbul, where snipers from a hotel shot into the crowds. Former Prime Minister Bulent Ecevit notes it was a Gladio operation backed by the US.

The world’s leading scholar on Operation Gladio is Dr. Daniele Ganser. He joins us now, great to see you, what do you make of what’s happened in Ukraine?

Daniele Ganser, Author of Nato’s Secret Armies: Snipers shooting both demonstrators and policemen in Maidan and, you know it reminded me of Istanbul on the first of May – you had secret armies linked to NATO firing on people there on the square, and this then created chaos and you had a right-wing military coup. It all reminds me of the ‘strategy of tension’, and it means that you create chaos and emotional distress in a population. When you do that the structure, the political structure, falls apart. Today we really must try to understand the strategy of tension, because otherwise we don’t understand certain political events which are ongoing.

RT: This is President George HW Bush greeting Ukraine war criminal Yaroslav Stetsko. Stetsko personally oversaw, reports Salon, the murder of 7,000 Jews.

In 1941 he marched into Kiev with the SS and issued a proclamation praising “glory to the German leader Adolf Hitler”. President Reagan brought Stetsko to the White House and told him: “Your struggle is our struggle. Your dream is our dream”.

Stetsko led the Ukraine Nazi group OUN-B that formed the infamous Nachtigall Battalion. His group went from town to town liquidating entire Jewish, Polish as well as Ukrainian populations, in total murdering some half a million.

Stetsko’s notorious head of secret police Mykola Lebed, writes the book Hitler’s Shadow, was convicted of murdering Poland’s Interior Minister.

The group’s publications called for “ethno-genetically pure Ukrainian territory” in other words “purging Poles and Jews”.

CIA deputy Allen Dulles wrote this letter to the Immigration Commissioner demanding to “assure Mykola Lebed’s re-entry into the United States without investigation, which would attract undue attention to his activities”.

Foreign Policy In Focus notes Lebed and Stetsko were just two of around 10,000 East European Nazi accomplices brought to the US.

CIA documents reveal paying massive salaries to Nazi war criminals such as Lebed, and called them Ukraine’s “government in exile” waiting for the right time.

These groups’ time has arrived. Organizations liked Lebed’s OUN-B have merged under the party today called Svoboda. Ukrainian national politicians now flock to these Svoboda ceremonies with soldiers in Nazi uniforms honoring SS war criminals.

Elected Svoboda officials renamed a Western Ukraine street from Peace to Nachtigall, the battalion that massacred Jews in Ukraine and Belarus.

Svoboda is led by Mr. Tyagnibok. The Simon Wiesenthal Center in 2012 named him one of the world’s five worst anti-Semites, who calls for “purging” Ukraine of its last 400,000 Jews.

Tyagnibok’s endorsed by John McCain and assistant secretary of state Vic Nuland, who in a leaked conversation was caught nominating Ukraine’s post-coup leaders. Her reward for Svoboda’s violence in the coup d’état was six cabinet posts, the first Nazis in government since the Third Reich.

Professor Barry Lituchy, Vice President of New York’s Holocaust Memorial Committee, points out Nuland is of Jewish descent.

When asked why she helps one of the world’s most appalling anti-Semites, Lituchy replied that’s a question for a psychiatrist.

To mask psychotic behavior, mainstream media have received perhaps their toughest White House assignment to date – to convince the public “There are No Neo-Nazis in Ukraine”.

It comes as the country’s fascists now go “door to door” in Eastern Ukraine. “If anyone is in, they are beaten or shot”. The Holocaust Memorial Museum reports right after coming to power “Gestapo agents went from door to door. They arrested those who had spoken out against the Nazi party. Some were murdered”.

Author Stephen Lendman brought together leading experts in new book Flashpoint in Ukraine to explain some of the horrors taking place in the country.

Dr. Lendman joins us, great to speak to you, how bad’s the actual situation become?

Stephen Lendman, editor of Flashpoint in Ukraine: Rabbis are preparing in case something very serious breaks out, the idea of a possible pogrom against Jews. And one of the rabbis said in one community: “we have 70 buses fueled and ready to go”. The neo-Nazis, which is what they are, in Ukraine today are literally descendants of the Nazis of the early era. One of their leaders – Dmytro Yarosh – a cold-blooded killer, I’ve quoted him saying publicly he boasted about wanting to kill Jews till he dies. I’m Jewish. If I was in Ukraine, and what I know about Nazi history, I wouldn’t wait around for a bus to take me out, I’d be getting out right away.

RT: Fascists, notes Global Research News, have become the military enforcers for the new Ukraine government.

The US has financed a new Ukraine National Guard, reports author Michel Chossudovsky, called the Azov Battalion.

Its emblem is a combination of the Nazi Black Sun, and the SS Division Das Reich.

London’s Sunday Times found the battalion is responsible for bloodshed against civilians that has caused revulsion amongst the population.

NATO has begun Gladio false flag operations in Ukraine according to US intelligence sources quoted by author William Engdahl.

The operation is led by right-wing extremists UNA, politically part of Right Sektor one of Ukraine’s Big Two ultranationalist coalitions, but which has kept its military arm free.

Global Research reports the UNA provided the snipers who deliberately shot both their own supporters and the police to provoke violence during the protests in Kiev.

WikiLeaked cables from the US Embassy in Kiev show the UNA fights in wars from Chechnya to Georgia. Engdahl points out “always” on the US side. The UNA behaves not like Ukraine nationalists, notes 21st Century Wire, but as international paramilitaries for the US for so-called dirty wars, when terrorism is required against civilians.

William Engdahl joins us, really great to have you on, what do we know about special operations in Ukraine described to you as Gladio?

William Engdahl, intelligence author: The Ukrainian National Assembly that you mentioned is historically linked to Ukrainian Nazis, not neo-Nazis but Nazis, during the Second World War. They were smuggled in to North America, Canada and the US by the thousands after the war. In the United States today they’re extremely powerful in Washington – influence by one estimate over half of the US Senate are beholden to support from these extreme right-wing Ukrainian exiles.

Neo-Nazi is really I think a very unuseful term because it implies that it’s not really real that they’re just kind of doing make-believe fantasy plays of Hitler salutes and so forth. These are genuine, if you want to use the term Nazi as a descriptive term, these are genuine Nazis.

The UNA and its military arm have been used they’ve been trained by NATO to commit atrocities and then have that blamed on the Russians by the local populations in Chechnya and elsewhere. They’ve been used in the Georgia war with Russia in 2008.

RT: Wat do you make of consistent US use of the very worst extremists now also in Ukraine?

Engdahl: It’s a war, if you will, against humanity. The people at the CIA and I’ve met a few of these characters over the years, but the higher levels of the CIA they come from Harvard, they come from Yale, they come from Princeton, from the old families and that’s kind of their private domain as they see it. George Herbert Walker Bush – Skull and Bones, Yale University, James Lilley – Skull and Bones, Yale University, CIA Ambassador to Beijing during Tiananmen Square, where he by likely accounts orchestrated the Tiananmen uprising against the government.

They think that they’re very intelligent people, but in reality they’re extremely stupid people and I want to make a point about this for listeners. Why do I say stupid, they’re not uneducated they have degrees as I said from the so-called “elite” universities. They’re stupid in a human sense, that they think they can kill people in Odessa as an “op”, as an operation, they call it “ops”. This is extremely stupid in the long run because they block out the interconnectiveness of everything in the world, really. They’re incapable mentally because of their, literally, psychopathic personalities, where they have been trained and developed to block out any human emotions, they are incapable of seeing these connections. So what’s being done in Ukraine is going to have consequences for them, for their next of kin, for their friends, their ambience and so forth, of a very negative sort. What goes around comes around.

RT: The US created Al-Qaeda, RAND Corporation notes that terror network’s still expanding and will now take “decades” to stop.

American-backed jihadis from Syria are now committing atrocities against the West, the latest – the shooting of three at a Jewish museum.

US “harvesting of unreconstructed fascists” may be a dangerous game to play.

Seek truth from facts. This is the Truthseeker.
