“And therein we find, neglected by us, the simplest, the most accessible key to our liberation: a personal non-participation in lies! Even if all is covered by lies, even if all is under their rule, let us resist in the smallest way: Let their rule hold not through me!“
My feelings about the irresponsible character of American and NATO policy vis a vis Vladimir Putin and Russia are a matter of public record. One can go back to my essay entitled, “America the Beautiful: Why We’re Finished” to review my published remarks several years ago on the machinations of the United States in this regard. I have also touched upon this briefly in my recently published remarks on the Brexit vote now reposted at Al Jazeerah, in occasional conversations with Press TV, and in previous work with both Patrick Slattery on RBN radio and you in a recent publish on Veterans Today.
My feelings are apparently shared by Mr. Putin himself. The Russian government has quite rightly began moving against the NGO’s linked to George Soros and other well-heeled subversives in the largely Jewish Tribal establishment promoting the toxic brew of Zionism, Central Banking, and Cultural Marxism which has completely enveloped the West and destroyed the older European Christian influences of both Europe and the United States eradicated by both World Wars in the 20th century and their aftermath. The economic sanctions, cultural subversion, and hourly global agitation-propaganda campaign aimed at the Putin regime and the Russian nation are now joined by the methodologies of black intelligence operations in places like Ukraine in February of 2014, and the overt military threat posed by the continued deployment of NATO and American military assets in Eastern Europe ever closer to Russian borders, augmented by the ongoing recruitment of countries on the Russian periphery for membership in NATO, including overtures to Montenegro, Ukraine, and Georgia. Given the specifics of Article V of the NATO charter, and the clear possibility of Russian military activity to legitimately protect their own backyard, the spectre of the likelihood of a NATO and American military conflict with Russia is made even more probable by these provocative and unjustifiable moves which have nothing to do with the Cold War doctrine of deterrence. The Guardian’s post on the recent Anaconda 2016 NATO war games in Poland, and the recent switching on of the U. S. ballistic missile shield in Deveselu, Romania, have brought the breaking of Bush 41’s promises to Gorbachev and the later unilateral American cancellation of the provisions of the ABM treaty to an entirely new level of dishonesty and recklessness.
My perspective on this and that of the Russian President and his Foreign Minister is shared by a number of other people. I would commend Eric Margolis’ “War With Russia is Coming.” Ex-CIA Station Chief and head of the Council for the National Interest, Dr. Philip Giraldi, has a July 13th release for Pat Buchanan’s The American Conservative entitled, “Russian Harassment and Other Fables.” Dr. Giraldi’s post for The Unz Review on June 28th, “The Magnitsky Hoax? Who Stole the Money?” adds to the mix. Finally, Robert Parry at Consortium News has an article out July 14. See “NATO Reaffirms its Bogus Russia Narrative.”
All of these gentlemen underscore two essential ingredients inherent in American and NATO policy where Russia is concerned: Duplicity and absolute madness. The Parry piece notes the absolutely Orwellian character of the recent Warsaw Summit Communique of the Western powers which condemn “Russian aggression” by noting the non-existent intelligence data and supporting analysis for the mantras of the Communique which repristinate memories of the Weapons of Mass Destruction fraud in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq in 2003, the constant glossalalia of top officials of NATO and American Neo-Conservatives on the subject of Putin and Russia, and the incessant drone of falsehoods repeated daily in the lapdog mainstream Western media.
He states unequivocally:
“The leaders – at least the key ones – know that there is no credible intelligence that Russian President Vladimir Putin provoked the Ukraine crisis in 2014 or that he has any plans to invade the Baltic states, despite the fact that nearly every ‘important person’ in Official Washington and other Western capitals declares the opposite of this to be reality.
“But there have been a few moments when the truth has surfaced. For instance, in the days leading up to the just-completed NATO summit in Warsaw, General Petr Pavel, chairman of the NATO Military Committee, divulged that the deployment of NATO military battalions in the Baltic states was a political, rather than military, act.
“It is not the aim of NATO to create a military barrier against broad-scale Russian aggression, because such aggression is not on the agenda and no intelligence assessment suggests such a thing,” Pavel told a news conference.
“What Pavel blurted out was what I have been told by intelligence sources over the past two-plus years – that the endless drumbeat of Western media reports about ‘Russian aggression’ results from a clever demonization campaign against Putin and a classic Washington ‘group think’ rather than from a careful intelligence analysis.”
It is critical to understand that the lies and agitation-propaganda being spun by the official American governmental and media narrative on who the aggressor and malefactor is in the present crisis mirrors the official line on how 9-11 happened and who was responsible for bringing it about. It mirrors the official line on American Neo-Conservative and Zionist untruth about Iran and the historical tragedies in the American relationship with that country since 1953. It mirrors the falsehoods of the United States and Israel about what really happened in Palestine in the late 1940s. It mirrors the official lies perpetrated about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the Kennedy Assassination. For that matter, one can reach farther back in the linear historical stream to the official line perpetrated on Abraham Lincoln and the American War Between the States held so dear by American Neo-Conservatives and Lovers of Empire.
Mr. Putin’s frustration with the duplicity of the United States and NATO is compounded by the inherent madness in the direction taken by the West in all of this. This comes forth very clearly in the brief clip of his airing of frustrations aimed at the Western media after the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum of June 17th. What is breathtaking is their full participation not simply in the lies, but in their stupefying failure to see the slope toward world war and apocalypse obviously steepening in the continued pushing of the envelope by the United States, NATO, and the EU in making global conflict and some form of nuclear exchange likely. And over what? It certainly isn’t the legitimate national defense of the United States and Western Europe. It has everything to do with the ongoing exportation of a brand of coercive globalism and World Government which threaten Russian autonomy as a sovereign nation-state free of the tentacles of the Beast. The implication may well be that failure to subdue the Bear by economic sanctions, demonization, and cultural subversion, will leave overt military aggression as the weapon of final resort.
Duplicity is more than matched by literal madness and insanity. Does the American Cabal of Empire and New World Order truly believe Russia will fail to defend its national honor, history, culture, autonomy, and homeland from this unfolding onslaught? Has The Cabal and its fawning paid agents in the Western media forgotten that Russia, unlike Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Libya, and Iran, is a nuclear power with a bona fide army and navy to match? Putin’s directed remarks to foreign correspondents on June 17th in St. Petersburg underscore his disbelief in the Pavlovian dogs of Western media. The tone of his voice, his facial intonations and body language give special power to the desperately heartfelt statements in that press conference, like “I don’t know how to get through to you people. . . . How do you not understand that the world is being pulled in an irreversible direction? . . .“
This “irreversible direction” can only be reversed by a wholesale domestic American and European revolt against The Cabal. It has not yet happened despite the wholesale destruction of the demographic, economic, cultural, spiritual, and political fortunes of millions in the West in the last 100 years of history. What remains to be seen is whether or not the threat of fire raining down on European and American cities will be enough to produce sufficient will and resolve to resist the tyranny of The Cabal and the seemingly irreversible and insane course it has charted toward cataclysm, or whether the Culture of Death and the nihilism produced by that culture for those entrapped in addictions to sexual decadence, drugs, and worship of technology will render meaningful resistance impossible.
Solzhenitsyn seems ominously prophetic when he tells us that “We are approaching the brink; already a universal spiritual demise is upon us; a physical one is about to flare up and engulf us and our children, while we continue to smile sheepishly and babble.“
Reza Saidi of the Tasnim News Agency of Iran interviewed Mark Dankof on the New World Order and its implications. The Farsi language version of this conversation published on September 28th, 2014 may be accessed here.
Reza Saidi: Mr. Dankof is the New World Order currently experiencing a crisis and if so, what is the root of the crisis?
Mark Dankof: The New World Order is definitely experiencing a crisis. The root of the crisis involves what Matthias Chang has referred to as the Anglo-American-Zionist-Military Industrial Complex, which has overextended its reach in the world by using illegitimate military means and political/cultural subversion of individual countries to reach three (3) ultimate goals: 1) The establishment of a world banking system which is committed to the Nixon-Saudi petrodollar of August of 1971 as the global reserve currency of the planet and the only currency to be utilized for all international oil transactions; 2) The establishment of a world government ultimately based in Jerusalem which will have its foundations in this global banking system, even as it is run by the appointed agents of Zionist and Jewish power who control establishment banking, media, and government in all of the individual nation-states globally who have been subverted and brought into this oppressive mechanism; and 3) the achievement of Eretz Yisrael (Greater Israel) in the Middle East, where the Zionist entity will control all of the territory between the Nile River and the Tigris/Euphrates River with a United Jerusalem as the seat of a Globalist Empire which oversees world banking, individual governments, multi-national corporations, world technologies, and the military/intelligence apparatuses of formerly sovereign nation-states. All of this provided the foundational assumptions of World Zionism and the United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference at Bretton Woods in 1944. The present crisis of the New World Order lies in the fact that the United States, the chief enabler of Global Zionism and the New World Order, has a level of national debt and overextension of military involvements globally that is driving a national debt approaching $18 trillion dollars, irresponsible borrowing from foreign central banks to finance its military adventures and profligate spending, and a monetary policy of a Federal Reserve Board which involves the frenetic printing and distribution of American dollars whose worth is tied to nothing else than the Nixon-Saudi petrodollar monopoly of 1971. If that monopoly is threatened or destroyed by effective opposition around the world, the game is over. That would be just fine by me. All of this is on top of the erosion of the domestic American manufacturing economy by Globalist design, and the erosion of the moral and spiritual values of an American population by equal design and intent.
Reza Saidi: As a main player in the NWO, why is the US unwilling to challenge and interfere in certain current international issues? On the other hand, if America tries to use and benefit from the actions of their partners as proxies in these affairs, is this the overall strategy of the US or is it an expression of Democratic Thought?
Mark Dankof: The answer to this is simple. The political elite which owns and runs the United States could care less about “Democracy,” “Human Rights,” or the autonomy of people in America and elsewhere who want no part of its Zionist, Globalist, Totalitarian agenda. The entire method of financing elections in America courtesy of the Citizens United and McCutcheon decisions of the United States Supreme Court, along with Zionist/Globalist ownership and control of Corporate Media Consortiums and news dissemination, guarantees the election of people to office who are owned Lock-Stock-and-Barrel by these interests. The Anti-New World Order Left and Right in the United States understands this. But there is nothing up to now which has proven effective in a counter political strategy to this monolith, either in America, or in places like Syria and Ukraine where economic and political subversion and overt military threats are employed to destroy anyone and anything in its path.
Reza Saidi: Do you believe that American hegemony is approaching its downfall with the appearance of other players on the contemporary world scene, like BRICS (Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa) and if so, what factors have led to that downfall?
Mark Dankof: Yes, the downfall of the American Empire pursuing the interest of the Anglo-American-Zionist-Military Industrial Complex is guaranteed. I believe the overextension of its military deployments, national debt, eventual destruction of the Nixon-Saudi petrodollar, erosion of domestic economic, political, and cultural infrastructure, the proliferation of alternative media, and both domestic and international blowback against the Anglo-American-Zionist-Military Industrial Complex make its downfall inevitable. It is following the pathway of all previous Empires who went into historical eclipse in world history. The BRICS (Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa) consortium is taking the right course of action in making economic moves designed to weaken and marginalize the Nixon-Saudi petrodollar and its present status as the reserve currency of the world. The problem is that its effectiveness is also making the world a more dangerous place in the short term. The Globalist/Zionist elite in Washington, London, and Tel Aviv would not ultimately concede to BRICS without a fight. The irresponsible policies of the United States, Israel, the EU, and NATO in Ukraine suggest the Anglo-American-Zionist-Military Industrial Complex is willing to risk a global conflict with nuclear powers (Russia, especially) to maintain its hegemony. This risk is clearly both immoral and quantifiably insane, which makes the Anglo-American-Zionist-Military Industrial Complex willingness to run it especially terrifying. I agree with Dr. Paul Craig Roberts that the time for BRICS to achieve its goals and for war to be averted is running out. I am not optimistic about any of this, even as I acknowledge that only God knows the final outcome.
Reza Saidi: Have the unilateral decision making tendencies of the US, without consideration for international law, influenced its main competitors, Russia and China, to take a similar stance?
Mark Dankof: Once again, the answer is clearly yes. On Press TV today, I discussed this very thing. America’s CINCPAC (Commander in Chief Pacific), Admiral Samuel Locklear, is publicly upset over last week’s appearance of 6 Russian Bear Long Range Bombers near American airspace in Alaska. I simply would ask the Admiral what else he should expect? The United States has illegimately used NATO to bomb Kosovo, invade Libya, and encircle Putin’s Russia in violation of promises to Russia made by Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush in the wake of the end of the old Soviet Union. The United States is attempting to use Takfiri and Wahhabic Islamic extremists financed by Saudi Arabia and abetted by Jordan and Turkey, to overthrow President Assad in Syria as a prelude to an Israeli inspired attack on Iran. In the Ukraine, we learn from a tapped phone conversation between United States Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland and the American Ambassador to Ukraine, that the American government poured $5 billion dollars into the orchestrated campaign of neo-Nazis and Jewish-financed NGO’s in Kiev to overthrow the legitimately elected Yanukovitch regime. Since that time, the illegal government in Kiev has been attacking defenseless Russian ethnics in Eastern Ukraine with high-tech military weaponry and overt terrorism like the deliberate torching of the Trade Union Building in Odessa to murder innocents. And Admiral Locklear is upset about Russian bomber deployments near Alaska? As I said on Press TV today, this is like an American baseball manager being surprised and upset when his pitcher deliberately throws a knockdown pitch at an opposing batter, only to discover in the next inning that one of his own players is then targeted for retaliation. Who would fail to retaliate and signal future retaliations when done in self-defense? The attempts of Obama, the American Congress, and these Neo-Conservative agents on Fox News and CNN to paint Vladimir Putin as the bad guy in all of this is transparently ridiculous. I’m frankly surprised Mr. Putin has exercised the restraint he has thus far in this confrontation. The people in the American government had better get ready. Mr. Putin’s patience is not unending. Russia has a strong military with a nuclear capability. The Russians are a proud people. If the United States and its Neo-Conservative, Zionist governors believe fighting Russia to be a “cakewalk,” to quote Kenneth Adelman’s oft-quoted statements on the ill-fated invasion of Iraq in 2003, we are witnessing a historic and frightening transition of a regime from mere criminality to the criminally insane.
Reza Saidi: Human rights are a main principle in US popular culture. Many of America’s international actions are undertaken with the stated intention of establishing human rights. However, the US domestic situation is in a state of great unrest due to extreme racial tensions brought about by repeated instances of police brutality against people of color and various other unfair domestic policies. Do you believe it an accurate observation to claim that the position on human rights that the US holds against other nations is a tool of coercion without any real intention to establish similar rights in their own states first? Can the US continue to use human rights to legitimize its interference in foreign lands?
Mark Dankof: I have already addressed the fraudulent claims of the government of the United States to be interfering in other people’s countries in the name of “Human Rights” and “Democracy.” The American interference in foreign lands is at the behest of the Anglo-American-Zionist-Military Industrial Complex. The latter is interested only in the theft of other people’s land, natural resources, and political autonomy by means of subversion and overt force. As for what is going on domestically in the United States, there are certainly many provable instances of police brutality against people of color. But I must emphasize whites in the United States who oppose the New World Order and have spoken out publicly are also targets. Since 2001, the American Department of Homeland Security, whose first chief was an Israeli citizen, have created “fusion centers” in all 50 States. These fusion centers are blurring the historic Constitutional delineations which separated the American military and the Federal Government of the United States from the law enforcement functions of duly elected State and Local governments. This is not an accident. The Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith was exposed in 2008 in the State of Missouri (see the Missouri Information Action Center report) for assisting Missouri State Law Enforcement and these Department of Homeland Security fusion centers, in the development of “Profiles of ‘Potential Home-Grown [Domestic] Terrorists’.” What did the Missouri Information Action Center, or MIAC report conclude? It said to watch out for white men who were identifiably Christian, opposed homosexual marriage and abortion, who opposed the New World Order, belonged to Second Amendment (gun ownership organizations), and voted for political candidates like Pat Buchanan and Ron Paul! This is a most serious business, because since September 11, 2001, the passage of the USA Patriot Acts, the Military Commissions Act of 2006, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), and the revelations of illegal NSA surveillance of American citizens, has moved the United States closer to the status of a full-blown police state. And at the behest of whom? At the behest of the Anglo-American-Zionist-Military Industrial Complex.
Reza Saidi: How much longer will America continue to support non-democratic Arab states? Isn’t this policy an example of double standards? Are most of America’s claims against their political enemies merely superficial protocols which America is either willing to ignore in its allies or which it violates itself inside its own borders? Do you think American hegemony can continue with appearance of viable opposition such as BRICS? is this time for American hegemony to be diluted and ultimately to collapse in history?
What factors played a role in all of this? Why has this American unilateralism and interventionism tempted Russia and China to follow suit? How does the United States continue to justify its methods and attitudes? How long can the United States support absolute opponents of Democracy in the Arab world?
Mark Dankof: I believe I have largely already addressed this clearly hypocritical contradiction in public policy. The Anglo-American-Zionist-Military Industrial Complex could care less about non-democratic states run by dictators and thugs as long as these thugs and dictators are doing the bidding of the Anglo-American-Zionist-Military Industrial Complex. The American relationship with the present regime in Saudi Arabia is only the most obvious example of what is going on here. This can only go on for a time. It cannot be sustained forever. There is good news for the world in this. The death of the Anglo-American-Zionist-Military Industrial Complex is in the interest of freedom lovers both in the United States and elsewhere. The question of the day is whether or not this death will be preceded by a tragic global military conflict which could destroy the planet. This is the fear of Dr. Paul Craig Roberts. It is also my fear. Only the God of history knows the answer.
