The United States Of Hubris

The U.S. Government is following the propaganda formula used by Joseph Goebbels that was devised by Sigmund Freud’s nephew, Edward Bernays. The basic idea is to keep repeating a lie enough times so that eventually the masses believe it. The “Russia hacked the election” propaganda is the perfect example. Hillary Clinton first mentioned it in reference to “Russia hacked the DNC emails” during one of the debates. That lie transformed into the “Russia hacked the election” false-narrative repeated every 30 seconds on Fox News, CNN and the greater mainstream media. In truth, to this day not one single shred of evidence has been produced to support the claim. And yet, the lie perpertuates and the public fears Russia. Charles Dickens could not have scripted a better socio-political parody.

This guest post is from “Antonius Aquinas:”

This year, as of yet, North Korea has not been responsible for a single death of a foreign national. Nor has the tiny communist state ever used a nuclear weapon against an enemy like the US did with its immoral and hellish destruction of two Japanese cities, Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the conclusion of WWII.

On the other hand, since the start of the Trump Presidency, US-backed forces have been responsible for the deaths of some 3700 civilians in Mosul, Iraq.** This is not to mention its murderous armed strikes in Yemen and Afghanistan. Nor is American aggression limited to direct military action, but its arms supply sales to despots and its puppets has escalated tensions and makes conflicts that do break out much more brutal.

Fortunately, for the future of global peace, US hegemony is coming to an end. The nation is hopelessly broke while its welfare/warfare economy is beyond reform and faltering badly which means that when the inevitable collapse does happen, it will mean the end or a serious pull back of the Empire. A similar situation took place in Great Britain in 1945 after it took part in another senseless global conflict which liquidated the British Empire once and for all.

Fake News, Propaganda And False Flags

The Fake News conspiracy is starting to lose steam.  It’s time to bury it completely. But this won’t happen because the “Fake News” narrative is another propaganda tool that is being used to distract the public’s attention from a collapsing economy and political system.

Paul Craig Roberts sent around an article that cites a former top NSA official who states explicitly that the NSA would have evidence of Russian influence on the election.  Apparently it has none:

If the idiots in the intelligence community expect us to believe them after all the crap they have told us (like WMD’s in Iraq and “no we don’t collect data on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans”) then they need to give clear proof of what they say. So far, they have failed to prove anything.

Which suggests they don’t have proof and just want to war monger the US public into a second cold war with the Russians.

After all, there’s lots and lots of money in that for the military-industrial-intelligence-governmental complex of incestuous relationships

This article is a must-read:   No Evidence Russia Hacked The Election.

The Russian/Fake News narrative is designed to foment Cold War 2.0 with Russia.  Russia and China are working – understandably – to remove the dollar as the world’s sole reserve currency.   The only means by which the U.S. can try to stop this is military.   It’s beginning to escalate into a dangerous game.  Trump seems to be perpetuating it by rhetorically fanning the flames with China in the South China Sea.

When an Empire is collapsing, history tells us that the Government foments “patriotism” through the heavy application of propaganda that is used to support rampant imperialism.  This is where the U.S. is right now.

Of course, Trump’s motive for enabling the Fake News narrative to perpetuate is to distract attention from his cabinet appointments, which have a decided Big Oil and Big Bank flavor to them.  So much for draining the Swamp.
