Catherine Austin Fitts: HOW TO SAVE OUR NATION & OUR LIVES BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE





Catherine Austin Fitts, publisher of the Solari Report and Solari.com joins Sean at the SGT Report  to say that the same forces that have looted trillions of dollars from the Department of Defense (DoD), NASA and Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds are the same forces aiming to destroy the US Constitution.

Fitts believes that the greatest immediate assault against the people is mind control, namely in the form of a Mainstream Media that wants you to believe that Russian Hacking and interference in the US Presidential Election is an actual concern.

In-depth Report: AFGHANISTANIRAQ REPORTSYRIA
You remember. It was supposed to be twenty-first-century war, American-style: precise beyond imagining; smart bombs; drones capable of taking out a carefully identified and tracked human being just about anywhere on Earth; special operations raids so pinpoint-accurate that they would represent a triumph of modern military science.  Everything “networked.” It was to be a glorious dream of limited destruction combined with unlimited power and success. In reality, it would prove to be a nightmare of the first order.
If you want a single word to summarize American war-making in this last decade and a half, I would suggest rubble. It’s been a painfully apt term since September 11, 2001. In addition, to catch the essence of such war in this century, two new words might be useful: rubblize and rubblization. Let me explain what I mean.
In recent weeks, another major city in Iraq has officially been “liberated” (almost) from the militants of the Islamic State. However, the results of the U.S.-backed Iraqi military campaign to retake Mosul, that country’s second largest city, don’t fit any ordinary definition of triumph or victory. It began in October 2016 and, at nine months and counting, has been longer than the World War II battle of Stalingrad. Week after week, in street to street fighting, with U.S. airstrikes repeatedly called in on neighborhoods still filled with terrified Mosulites, unknown but potentially staggering numbers of civilians have died. More than a million people — yes, you read that figure correctly — were uprooted from their homes and major portions of the Western half of the city they fled, including its ancient historic sections, have been turned into rubble.
This should be the definition of victory as defeat, success as disaster. It’s also a pattern. It’s been the essential story of the American war on terror since, in the month after the 9/11 attacks, President George W. Bush loosed American air power on Afghanistan. That first air campaign began what has increasingly come to look like the full-scale rubblization of significant parts of the Greater Middle East.

Grete Mautner -- America’s Propaganda Central is Going to Cash in Big

America’s Propaganda Central is Going to Cash in Big
Column: Politics
Note of the poster -- As an example of the content explained below in this article, please watch the video broadcast today, 23:07:2017 by RTP 3,  at 11:00 PT time, in Portugal.

Recently, political agitation along with economic pressure applied against potential adversaries has become a tool of choice in Washington’s foreign policy. Thus the US has transformed the world into yet another battlefield, where a giant bullseye is painted across Russia and its allies.
If the East used to get engaged into propaganda wars, now it’s a major trend in the West! What is worse is that the absolute majority of anti-Russian propaganda statements are baseless and flat out strange, because it seems to have been pirated from the play book of anti-American propaganda tricks that the so-called “criminal communist regimes” would employ against Washington back in the Cold War days. At the same time, anti-Russian propagandists have yet to present a single legally justified accusation against Russia.
It’s been noted that while Trump is still defending Putin in public, American lawmakers are quietly pumping tens of millions of dollars into a new propaganda initiative. The Daily Beast reports the United States government is spending tens of millions of dollars to assault Vladimir Putin and the state he leads, a move slipped into the thousands of pages of the annual defense policy bill passed by Congress.
A bipartisan initiative led by senators Rob Portman and Chris Murphy has authorized 160 million dollars over two years to fight state actors through a little-known agency office housed at the State Department called the Global Engagement Center.
The media source would tell you that anti-Russian sanctions legislation that is being adopted would expand it even further, dedicating an additional 100 million dollars for the GEC and others to support «objective Russian-language journalism» and support research on the effects of information warfare.
America’s state propaganda agency Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) released a report about the range of its last year’s activities. It is noteworthy that at the cover of this paper one can spot the picture of Cathedral Of St. Basil The Blessed that is situated in Moscow, which clearly demonstrates the ongoing priorities of the BBG that has been engaged in information warfare via various broadcasts organized outside the territory of the US. The report is to be examined by the sitting US President and the US Congress.
The report states that in 2016 the agency would cooperate with all sorts of investigators, directors and journalists for them to promote US foreign policy and national security interests “through independent journalism”.
The target audience of such instances of “independent journalism” can be found in Russia, across the entire post-Soviet space, China, Iran, Cuba, along with a number of other regions. The BBG would broadcast its propaganda manifests in national languages of the countries it has been operating in, while adding programs in the languages of national minorities living in the above mentioned regions. By the end of 2016, the total number of employees of BBG reached 2,940.
In mid-June, the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor would release a tender that would demand the contenders to present the bureau with considerable capabilities for “independent and objective media coverage” across the Baltic States, in order to promote the “values of democracy and human rights” and wage information wars. Under the conditions of the tender, it is emphasized that the media should create competitive modern content on actively developing digital platforms, while targeting the Russian-speaking audience in those states. The tender will provide the agency that would get an upper hand with a sum ranging from 1.5 million to 3 million dollars, however it would be forced to closely coordinate its activities with US embassies in the Baltic countries. In addition, the agency that is to win the grant should get registered with the NSPA – NATO Support and Procurement Agency.
Last month it has also become known that the Broadcasting Board of Governors remains in control of such propaganda stations as Radio Liberty and Voice of America demanded the US Congress to allocate a total of 22 million dollars on its operations in spite of the fact that public interest towards above mentioned stations has been declining due to all sorts of unfounded public statements that they have been making. In total the Board has demanded US president to allocate over 685 million dollars on its operations for the year 2018. It’s curious that Washington is spending almost as much money on spreading propaganda in Russia as it spends on similar activities in China.
Information warfare is aimed at seizing control over the consciousness of the people in certain regions of the world. These actions can be countered by the promotion of a truly democratic society, where every individuals understands that freedom comes hand-in-hand with responsibility.
The ongoing resistance of various civil groups in the US shows that the information war is not lost. Democracy is still inseparable from the freedom, plurality of opinions and reliability of information, and there’s every reason to fight for these values.

Martin Berger -- Who Should be Held Responsible for the Cold-blooded Genocide in Yemen

Who Should be Held Responsible for the Cold-blooded Genocide in Yemen
Column: Politics
Region: Middle East
Country: Yemen

 
International human rights organizations such as the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the British Save the Children fund say that every ten minutes a child dies in Yemen, what’s even worse – he would die from a curable disease. Every 35 seconds yet another child would get infected with cholera in this war-torn country. Child mortality rates accompanied by the cholera epidemic that has reached catastrophic proportions are only a tip of the iceberg of the humanitarian catastrophe that unravels in Yemen as a result of foreign invasion. However, Western media and politicians remain deaf, dumb and blind, being more that willing to turn a blind eye to the catastrophe of tragic proportions that we witness in Yemen. As we see a stream of new reports of civilians dying from by the hands of Saudi soldiers equipped with all sorts of US and UK produced weapons, we are forced to admit that Yemen has been transformed in a zone of perpetual genocide.
It’s all started back in March 2015, when Saudi Arabia, while enjoying full support of the United States and Britain, without any sort of approval issued by the UN Security Council unleashed an armed aggression against Yemen, thus acting as boldly and blatantly as only Washington would dare before.

Martin Berger -- Who Should Be Held Responsible for the Cruel Bloodshed in Syria

Who Should Be Held Responsible for the Cruel Bloodshed in Syria
Column: Politics
Region: Middle East
Country: Syria

It goes without saying that it’s mainly due to the unprecedented courage of certain journalists that go above and beyond to report the truth, we know that that there’s a whole list of Western countries that continue arming such radical terrorist groups as Jabhat al-Nusra and ISIS.
On June 15, the UN report would release a report that would state that Israeli authorities are routinely financing and supplying Islamic radical militants fighting against the legitimate government of Syria and its armed forces in the Golan Heights. The report that was penned by the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) summarizes the period from March 2 to May 16, noting there’s a number of cases Israel would assist renegade armed groups. In total, there’s been sixteen such instances recorded by UNDOF.
But it goes much further than this. As it’s been reported there’s been at least 350 diplomatic Silk Way Airlines flights transporting weapons to various war zones across the world over the last 3 years. This Azerbaijani state-run company has been smuggling weapons to Syria under the pretext of shipping diplomatic pouches.
The files that were leaked to the members of the press include correspondence between the Bulgarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Embassy of Azerbaijan, with attached documents for weapons deals and diplomatic clearance for overflight and/or landing in Bulgaria and a great many countries, including US, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Turkey.
And there’s no need to be surprised over that since it’s been established a long while ago that the most intense weapons trafficking to radical Islamists has been run by Bulgaria. Moreover, a total of fifteen different intelligence agencies, including special services of the USA, Great Britain, France and the countries of the Persian Gulf have joined their efforts in organizing the so-called “Bulgarian Stream”. They’ve been using diplomatic flights run by American companies to supply pro-US forces on the ground with non-NATO weapons, buying them in Bulgaria and then delivering the crates to Saudi Arabia for them to be smuggled to Syria.

Massacre in Raqqa

Stephen LENDMAN
Defenseless civilians in Raqqa are being massacred daily by US terror-bombing.
According to the UN Commission of Inquiry on Syria “intensification of air strikes, which have paved the ground for an SDF advance in Raqqa, has resulted not only in a staggering loss of civilian li(ves), but has also led to 160,000 civilians fleeing their homes and becoming internally displaced.”
Tens of thousands of civilians still in the city “fac(e) extreme danger (from) excessive airstrikes.” A humanitarian crisis grips the area. Individuals able to flee have limited or no access to food, water, medical treatment and other life’s essentials.
According to Doctors Without Borders’ northern Syria emergency coordinator Puk Leenders, aid supplies are “very, very limited, and the needs of the population are very high.”
Food delivered by the UN World Food Program is woefully inadequate to feed around 70,000 residents still in the city.
Raqqa is being silently slaughtered. Defense Secretary “Mad Dog” Mattis said “annihilation tactics” are being used – without explaining civilians are being massacred daily.
He lied claiming US forces are “do(ing) everything humanly possible consistent with military necessity, taking many chances to avoid civilian casualties at all costs.”
Terror munitions are being used in residential areas, including white phosphorous, an incendiary weapon capable of burning flesh to the bone on contact.
On July 20, AMN News said “(c)ivilians described the ‘massacres’ in the villages surrounding Raqqa as they arrived in Hama on Thursday, having fled the city and its surrounding countryside.”
“One man recounted how he had travelled form Raqqa where nothing was left save for ‘destruction by the Coalition and ISIS…’ ”
“Houses, families, children, women, all were hit by the random strikes,” he said.
Another civilian said “(t)here is a massacre at every village. There is no exception for that. Massacres took place in all of them.”
US terror-bombing raped and destroyed Mosul. Now it’s Raqqa’s turn. The city and countryside are being systematically annihilated, thousands, maybe tens of thousands, of civilians massacred in cold blood.
Most US-supported ISIS fighters were redeployed elsewhere in Syria. According to a Raqqa refugee, “streets are full of dead bodies. (S)chools were targeted…bridges and mosques.”
Civilian corpses “are lying in…streets.” Raqqa is an open-air graveyard. “Dogs (are) eating (dead) bodies.”
Civilians escaping the carnage blame US terror-bombing for what’s happening. One eyewitness said there’s “(n)othing…left in Raqqa except… destruction.”
“(M)assacres are everywhere.” City residents lost everything – their houses, possessions, spouses, children, everything because of indiscriminate terror-bombing.
Media scoundrels ignore the carnage, pretending it’s humanitarian liberation – countless thousands of civilians liberated from their lives.
