All NATO leaders will meet together at a crucial July 8-9 Summit meeting in Warsaw, to agree about what to do to Russia, about which US General Philip Breedlove, then the Supreme Commander of NATO, said earlier this year, «Russia has chosen to be an adversary and poses a long-term existential threat to the United States and to our European allies and partners». The main purpose of this meeting will be to achieve unity on the Russian problem. It will be difficult to do. The 28 member nations are not, and have not been, unified on the matter. The US is seeking a more aggressive stand.
And did you know that, finally, in 2016, Russia is being surrounded so hostilely by the US, that their President Vladimir Putin is now issuing vague threats that Russia will strike before the US? (The first side to launch its missiles will likely receive the lesser amount of damage in the resulting nuclear exchange – who strikes first will largely determine the ‘winner’ of any WW III.)
Instead of the US government’s and press’s «Duck and cover!» and build-your-bombshelters campaigns in 1962, the people who are terrified this time around are actually the Russians; but, would you know about this widespread fear in Russia, from the ‘reporting’ in the US ‘news’ media? It’s not being reported. And it won’t be the topic at NATO, because NATO is the alliance against Russia, not against America.
The international aristocracy, which owns more than half of the world’s wealth, owns especially the news media, and so the facts that they’re the most inclined to hide from their public (besides how untrustworthy they are), are the facts that are the most important to hide by the international corporations (including corporations such as Lockheed Martin), which also are owned by them, and which advertise the most in the news media. Thus, foreign affairs is the topic that receives the most-distorted, the most propagandistic, ‘news’ coverage of all, in fake ‘democracies’ such as today’s US.
America’s hyper-aggressive foreign policy is not actually designed to protect the American public (such as the ‘Defense’ Department and its millions of military contractors say), but to further enrich America’s billionaires, by conquering the world’s most-resource-rich nation, Russia (starting by ousting foreign leaders who are friendly toward Russia, such as Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi, Viktor Yanukovych, and Bashar al-Assad), as a consequence of which ‘domino-war’ against Russia, the only international poll that was ever done on the question of «Which country do you think is the greatest threat to peace in the world today?» produced the remarkable and little-publicized finding, that overwhelmingly the nation which is considered worldwide to be the most dangerous of all, is the United States.
This was an open-ended question, and the 67,806 global respondents who answered it, named many different countries as being the «greatest threat», but the clear # 1 there was the US, named by 24%; # 2 was Pakistan, named by 8%; #3 was China, named by 6% – and the nation that US President Barack Obama identifies as being the world’s most dangerous country, Russia, was #12 on that list, with only 2% of global respondents naming it. Is this because the foreign press is underplaying how aggressive Russia is? Or is it instead because the US press are overplaying how peaceful the US is, and are also overplaying how aggressive Russia is?
Independence Day always leads to an outbreak of stories about the glories of democracy from the usual suspects in the media. One of the stranger things in my lifetime is the fact that when I was young, democracy was a fetish of the Left, while the Right scoffed at the wisdom of the masses. Today, it is a fetish of the Right and the Left is making ominous noises about the foolishness of elections and democracy. The result is the so-called conservative media turns July 4th into a saccharine celebration of democracy.
Consider some numbers from the US government. Health and Human Services has about 150 employees who report directly to the president. These are appointees usually brought in the by the Secretary of HHS. The department has 78,000 employees that are civil servants. Most of what HHS does on a daily basis is unknown to the White House staff. Most of it is unknown to bureaucracy itself. An organization of that scale and permanence takes on a life of its own. It’s a giant blob that absorbs what it touches.
This is why we have elections and not much changes.The rhetoric changes and maybe the way the bureaucracy is sold to the public changes a bit. Otherwise, the only thing that changes is the overall size of the state. It always gets bigger. 50 years ago the Feds spent about $4500 per citizen and today they spend close to three times that. This is in inflation adjusted dollars. That’s a lot of elections with nothing ever changing, suggesting something else determines the size and scope of the state.
The super rich are not bound by the state any more than a major shareholder is bound to the company. They sit on the board as major political donors and fixers, but they may perform this function for many countries, just as a rich guy sits on the boards of many firms. Sheldon Adelson is just as involved in Israeli politics as he is US politics. George Soros is involved in the politics of a dozen countries, including countries that are in competition with one another.
The voters of countries are the small shareholders. They have some say in things, but only at the fringes. When the board puts up two candidates for the CEO position, the voters get some input on which one gets the job, but usually both choices are offering the same thing. Whenever there is a shareholder revolt and an alternative option is presented, the members of the board close ranks to fight it. They do this to protect their prerogatives as major shareholders. Even if the people are right, they cannot be allowed to dictate policy to management, much less the board. After all, the corporation is not a democracy.
That’s the state of the West. The nation states are now just corporate states, run by a relatively small number of global billionaires. The small shareholders get to show up at shareholder meetings and pretend to have a say in things, but the management is not beholden to them. The managers in the corporate state are the politicians and their accessories in the political class. These people answer to the board that put them in their positions. It’s why no matter who wins an election, the results are always the same.
It’s also why we are seeing attempts at merging the nations of Europe into a single conglomerate. Consolidation is the natural dynamic in the corporate world. It’s why we are down to three PC makers when 25 years ago there were dozens. It’s why there are two mobile phone players when there used to be a dozen. Corporations must always grow to survive so when growth is no longer possible, they merge with others or acquire smaller firms. Global governance is really just Google streamlining the corporate states to make them more efficient for the purposes of the major shareholders.
How this ends up is anyone’s guess. The history of the equities markets is the story of bubbles and busts so the credit money era will do to nations what it has done to many businesses and industries. Of course, every corporate entity goes through tough times and must downsize. That usually means layoffs and terminations. The application of that to the corporate state should be interesting. Maybe that’s why both parties in Washington suddenly want to take away all the guns.

They are the worst Mafia on the face of the Earth. Nobody is safe from their reach. The people who oppose their New World Order do so at their own peril. They will assassinate any leader and even wipe out entire governments. Again, as I have stated on multiple occasions, this is the price the people must pay for opposing the New World Order.
As a point of background, let’s review what happened to the Polish government, in 2010, as a starting point of reference when the Polish government refused to adopt the Euro.
also reported that Kaczynski resisted adopting the Euro. As this article unfolds, this refusal of the soon-to-be dead leaders to capitulate to on the regionalization of currencies, to the detriment of an economically solvent nation, will become a persistent theme.
Bob Unruh of WND is reporting the following:
For the moment, Clinton is the choice of the globalist. And nobody is outside their reach.
Justice Scalia learned the hard way not to rule against Climate Change initiatives, or face the consequences. The consequences include being murdered when your federally mandated body guard, is out of the room and nobody in the MSM blinked an eye when a pillow case was left on Scalia’s body. Remember, nobody is outside their reach, not even a Supreme Court judge.
