This analysis was written for the Unz Review.
First, my writing on the wall
In October of last year a wrote an analysis I entitled The USA are about to face the worst crisis of their history and how Putin’s example might inspire Trump and I think that this is a good time to revisit it now. I began the analysis by looking at the calamities which would befall the United States if Hillary was elected. Since this did not happen (thank God!), we can safely ignore that part and look at my prediction of what would happen if Trump was elected. Here is what I wrote:
Trump wins. Problem: he will be completely alone. The Neocons have a total, repeat total, control of the Congress, the media, banking and finance, and the courts. From Clinton to Clinton they have deeply infiltrated the Pentagon, Foggy Bottom, and the three letter agencies. The Fed is their stronghold. How in the world will Trump deal with these rabid “crazies in the basement“? Consider the vicious hate campaign which all these “personalities” (from actors, to politicians to reporters) have unleashed against Trump – they have burned their bridges, they know that they will lose it all if Trump wins (and, if he proves to be an easy pushover his election will make no difference anyway). The Neocons have nothing to lose and they will fight to the very last one. What could Trump possibly do to get anything done if he is surrounded by Neocons and their agents of influence? Bring in an entirely different team? How is he going to vet them? His first choice was to take Pence as a VP – a disaster (he is already sabotaging Trump on Syria and the elections outcome). I *dread* the hear whom Trump will appoint as a White House Chief of Staff as I am afraid that just to appease the Neocons he will appoint some new version of the infamous Rahm Emanuel… And should Trump prove that he has both principles and courage, the Neocons can always “Dallas” him and replace him with Pence. Et voilà!
I went on to suggest that Trump’s only option would be to follow Putin’s example and do the the Neocons what Putin did to the oligarchs. Clearly that did not happen. In fact, one month after the election of Trump I wrote another analysis entitled “The Neocons and the “deep state” have neutered the Trump Presidency, it’s over folks!“.
Less than a month ago I warned that a ‘color revolution ‘ was taking place in the USA. My first element of proof was the so-called “investigation” which the CIA, FBI, NSA and others were conducting against President Trump’s candidate to become National Security Advisor, General Flynn. Tonight, the plot to get rid of Flynn has finally succeeded and General Flynn had to offer his resignation. Trump accepted it. Now let’s immediately get one thing out of the way: Flynn was hardly a saint or a perfect wise man who would single handedly saved the world. That he was not. However, what Flynn was is the cornerstone of Trump’s national security policy. (…) The Neocon run ‘deep state’ has now forced Flynn to resign under the idiotic pretext that he had a telephone conversation, on an open, insecure and clearly monitored, line with the Russian ambassador. And Trump accepted this resignation. Ever since Trump made it to the White House, he has taken blow after blow from the Neocon-run Ziomedia, from Congress, from all the Hollywood doubleplusgoodthinking “stars” and even from European politicians. And Trump took each blow without ever fighting back. Nowhere was his famous “you are fired!” to be seen. But I still had hope. I wanted to hope. I felt that it was my duty to hope. But now Trump has betrayed us all. Again, Flynn was not my hero. But he was, by all accounts, Trump’s hero. And Trump betrayed him. The consequences of this will be immense. For one thing, Trump is now clearly broken. It took the ‘deep state’ only weeks to castrate Trump and to make him bow to the powers that be. Those who would have stood behind Trump will now feel that he will not stand behind them and they will all move back away from him. The Neocons will feel elated by the elimination of their worst enemy and emboldened by this victory they will push on, doubling-down over and over and over again. It’s over, folks, the deep state has won.
I then concluded that the consequences of this victory would catastrophic for the United States:
In their hate-filled rage against Trump and the American people (aka “the basket of deplorables”) the Neocons have had to show their true face. By their rejection of the outcome of the elections, by their riots, their demonization of Trump, the Neocons have shown two crucial things: first, that the US democracy is a sad joke and that they, the Neocons, are an occupation regime which rules against the will of the American people. In other words, just like Israel, the USA has no legitimacy left. And since, just like Israel, the USA are unable to frighten their enemies, they are basically left with nothing, no legitimacy, no ability to coerce. So yes, the Neocons have won. But their victory is removes the last chance for the US to avoid a collapse.
I think that what we are seeing today are the first signs of the impending collapse.
The symptoms of the agony
- Externally, the US foreign policy is basically “frozen” and in lieu of a foreign policy we now only have a long series of empty threats hurled at a list of demonized countries which are now promised “fire and brimstone” should they dare to disobey Uncle Sam. While this makes for good headlines, this does not qualify as a “policy” of any kind (I discussed this issue at length during my recent interview with SouthFront). And then there is Congress which has basically stripped Trump from his powers to conduct foreign policy. This bizarre, and illegal, form of a “vote of no-confidence” further hammers in the message that Trump is either a madman, a traitor, or both.
- Internally, the latest riots in Charlottesville now being blamed on Trump who, after being a Putin agent is now further demonized as some kind of Nazi (see Paul Craig Roberts’ first and second warnings about this dynamic)
- Organizationally, it is clear that Trump is surrounded by enemies as illustrated by the absolutely outrageous fact that he can’t even talk to a foreign head of state without having the transcript of his conversation leaked to the Ziomedia.
I believe that these all are preparatory steps to trigger a major crisis and use it to remove Trump, either by a process of impeachment, or by force under the pretext of some crisis. Just look at the message which the Ziomedia has been hammering into the brains of the US population.
The psychological preparation for the forthcoming coup: scaring them all to death
Here are three very telling examples taken from Newsweek’s front page:
Ask yourself, what is the message here?
Trump is a traitor, he works for Putin, Putin wants to destroy democracy in the United States and these two men together are the most dangerous men on the planet. This is a “plot against America“, no less!
Not bad, right?
“They” are clearly out there go get “us” and “we” are all in terrible danger: Kim Jong-un is about to declare nuclear war on the USA, Xi and Putin are threatening the world with their armies, and “our” own President came to power courtesy of the “Russian KGB” and “Putin’s hackers”, he now works for the Russians, he is also clearly a Nazi, a White supremacist, a racist and, possibly, a “new Hitler” (as is Putin, of course!).
And then, there are those truly scary Mooslims and Aye-rabs who apparently want only two things in life: destroy “our way of life” and kill all the “infidels”. This is why we need the TSA, 16 intelligence agencies and militarized police SWAT teams everywhere: in case the terrorists come to get us where we live.
Dangerous international consequences
This would all be rather funny if it was not also extremely dangerous. For one thing, the US is really poking at a dangerous foe when it constantly tries to scare Kim Jong-un and the DPRK leadership. No, not because of the North Korean nukes (which are probably not real nuclear capable ICBMs but a not necessarily compatible combination of nuclear ‘devices’ and intermediate range ballistic missiles) but because of the huge and hard to destroy conventional North Korean military. The real threat are not missiles, but a deadly combination of conventional artillery and special forces which present very little danger to the USA or the US military, but which present a huge threat for the population of Seoul and the northern section of South Korea. Nukes, in whatever form, are really only an added problem, a toxic “icing” on an already very dangerous ‘conventional cake’.
[Sidebar – a real life nightmare: Now, if you *really* want to terrify yourself and stay awake all night then consider the following. While I personally believe that Kim Jong-un is not insane and that the main objective of the North Korean leadership is to avoid a war at all costs, what if I am wrong? What if those who say that the North Korean leaders are totally insane are right? Or, which I think is much more likely, what if Kim Jong-un and the North Korean leaders came to the conclusion that they have nothing to lose, that the Americans are going to kill them all, along with their families and friends? What could they, in theory, do if truly desperate? Well, let me tell you: forget about Guam; think Tokyo! Indeed, while the DPRK could devastate Seoul with old fashioned artillery systems, DPRK missiles are probably capable of striking Tokyo or the Keihanshin region encompassing Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe including the key industries of the Hanshin Industrial Region. The Greater Tokyo area (Kanto region) and the Keihanshin region are very densely populated (37 and 20 million people respectively) and contain an immense number of industries, many of which would produce an ecological disaster of immense proportions if hit by missiles. Not only that, but a strike on the key economic and financial nodes of Japan would probably result in a 9-11 kind of international economic collapse. So if the North Koreans wanted to really, really hurt the Americans what they could do is strike Seoul, and key cities in Japan resulting in a huge political crisis for the entire planet. During the Cold War we used to study the consequences of a Soviet strike against Japan and the conclusion was always the same: Japan cannot afford a war of any kind. The Japanese landmass is too small, too densely populated, to rich in lucrative targets and a war lay waste to the entire country. This is still true today, only more so. And just imagine the reaction in South Korea and Japan if some crazy US strike on the DPRK results in Seoul and Tokyo being hit by missiles! The South Koreans have already made their position unambiguously clear, by the way. As for the Japanese, they are officially placing their hopes in missiles (as if technology could mitigate the consequences of insanity!). So yeah, the DPRK is plenty dangerous and pushing them into their last resort is totally irresponsible indeed, nukes or no nukes]
What we are observing now is positive feedback loop in which each move by the Neocons results in a deeper and deeper destabilization of the entire system. Needless to say, this is extremely dangerous and can only result in an eventual catastrophe/collapse. In fact, the signs that the USA are totally loosing control are already all over the place, here are just a few headlines to illustrate this:
- Iran could quit nuclear deal in ‘hours’ if new U.S. sanctions imposed: Rouhani
- Israel: Netanyahu declares support for a Kurdish state
- Syrian forces take 3 more towns en route to Deir ez-Zor in first airborne operation
- Maduro calls for nationwide ‘anti-imperialist’ drills after Trump’s threat of ‘military option’
- Soldiers of the 201st (Russian) base in Tadjikistan have been put on high alert as part of a military exercise
- Confirmed: Turkey to end support for anti-government terrorists in Syria
- Russia Plans Huge Zapad 2017 Military Exercises With Belarus
A French expression goes “when the cat is gone, the mice dance“, and this is exactly what is happening now: the USA is both very weak and basically absent. As for the Armenians, they say “The mouse dreams dreams that would terrify the cat”. Well, the “mice” of the world are dancing and dreaming and simply ignoring the “cat”. Every move the cat makes only makes things worse for him. The world is moving on, while the cat is busy destroying himself.
Dangerous domestic consequences
First on my list would be race riots. In fact, they are already happening all over the United States, but they are rarely presented as such. And I am not talking about the “official” riots of Black Lives Matter, which are bad enough, I am talking about the many mini-riots which the official media is systematically trying to obfuscate. Those interested in this topic should read the book Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry by Colin Flaherty which shows that racist attack on Whites by Blacks (aka “polar bear hunting”) are on the rise pretty much all over the county. Likewise, to anybody who stubbornly persists in ignoring the strong correlation between race and crime ought to read Ron Unz’s seminal analysis Race and Crime in America. Now, before some self-appointed thought police volunteer accuses me a racism, I am not saying anything at all about the causes of the racial problems in the United States. I am only saying that racial violence in the USA is severe and rapidly getting much worse.
The second problem which I see threatening the US society is an extremely rapid delegitimization of the entire US political system and, especially, of the Federal government. For decades now Americans have been voting for ‘A’ and each time what they ended up with is ‘non-A’. Examples of that include the famous “read my lips, no new taxes”, of course, but also Obama promises to stop stupid wars and now Trump’s promise to “drain the swamp”. Americans have been lied to for decades and they know it. There is a widening chasm between the so-called “American values” taught in schools and the reality of power. While officially the USA are supposed to stand for democracy, freedom and all the other good things advocated by the Founding Fathers, the disgusting reality is that the USA are in bed with Wahabis, Nazis and Zionists. The all-prevailing hypocrisy of it all now threatens to bring down the entire US political system just as the no less prevailing hypocrisy of the Soviet system brought down the USSR (if interested, you can read more about this topic here). The simple truth is that no regime can survive for too long when it proactively supports the exact opposite of what it officially is supposed to stand for. The result? I have yet to meet an adult American who would sincerely believe that he/she lives in the “land of the free and the home of the brave”. Maybe infants still buy this stuff, but even teenagers know that this is a load of bull.
Third, for all the encouraging statistics about the Dow Jones, unemployment and growth, the reality is that the US society is rapidly transforming itself in a three-tired one: on top, a small number of obscenely rich people, under them, a certain amount of qualified professionals who service the filthy rich and who struggle to maintain a lifestyle which in the past was associated with the middle-class. And then the vast majority of Americans who basically are looking at making “minimal wage plus a little something” and who basically survive by not paying for health insurance, by typically working two jobs, by eating cheap and unhealthy “prolefeed” and by giving up on that which every American worker could enjoy in the 1950s and 1960s (have one parent at home, have paid holidays, a second vacation home, etc.). Americans are mostly hard workers and, so far, most of them are surviving, but they are mostly one paycheck away from seriously bad poverty. A lot of them only make ends meet because they get help from their parents and grand-parents (the same is true of southern Europe, by the way). A large segment of the US population now survives only because of Walmart and the Dollar Store. Once that fails, food stamps are the last option. That, or jail, of course.
Combine all this and you get a potentially extremely explosive situation. No wonder that when so many Americans heard Hillary’s comment about the “basket of deplorables” they took that as declaration of war.
And how do the Neocons plan to deal with all this?
By cracking down on free speech and dissent, of course! What else?
Their only response – repression of course!
YouTube, Google, Facebook, Twitter – they are all cracking down on “bad” speech which includes pretty much any topic a garden variety self-described ‘liberal’ frowns upon. GoDaddy and Google are even going after domain names. Oh sure, nobody gets thrown in jail for, say, defending the 2nd Amendment, but they get “demonetized” and their accounts simply closed. It’s not the cops cracking down on free speech, it’s “Corporate America”, but the effect is the same. Apparently, the Neocons do not realize that censorship is not a viable strategy in the age of the Internet. Or maybe they do, and they are deliberately trying to trigger a backlash?
Then there is the vilification campaign in the media: unless you are some kind of ‘minority’ you are assumed to be nefarious by birth and guilty of all the evils on the planet. And your leader is Trump, of course, or maybe even Putin himself, vide supra. Christian heterosexual White males better run for cover…
Whatever may be the case, by their manic insistence, on one hand, to humiliate and crush Trump and, on the other, to repress millions of Americans the Neocons are committing a double mistake. First, they are showing their true face and, second, they are subverting the very institutions they are using to control and run this country. That, of course, only further weaken the Neocons and the United States themselves and that further accelerates the positive feedback loop mentioned above which now threatens the entire international system.
Us and them
What makes the gradual collapse of the AngloZionist Empire so uniquely dangerous is that it is by far the biggest and most powerful empire in world history. No empire has ever had the quasi monopoly on power the USA enjoyed since WWII. By any measure, military, economic, political, social, the USA came out of WWII as a giant and while there were ups and downs during the subsequent decades, the collapse of the USSR only reaffirmed what appeared to be the total victory of the United States. In my admittedly subjective opinion, the last competent (no, I did not say ‘good’, I said ‘competent’) US President was George Herbert Walker Bush who, unlike his successors, at least new how to run an Empire. After that, it is all downhill, faster and faster. And if Obama was probably the most incompetent President in US history, Trump will be the first one to be openly lynched while in office. As a result, the AngloZionist Empire is now like a huge freight train which lost its locomotive but which still have an immense momentum pushing it forward even though there is nobody in control any more. The rest of the planet, with the irrelevant exception of the East Europeans, is now scrambling in horror to get out of the path of this out of control train. So far, the tracks (minimal common sense, political realities) are more or less holding, but a crash (political, economic or military) could happen at any moment. And that is very, very scary.
The USA has anywhere between 700 to 1000 military bases worldwide, the entire international financial system is deeply enmeshed with the US economy, the US Dollar is still the only real reserve currency, United States Treasury securities are held by all the key international players (including Russia and China), SWIFT is politically controlled by the USA, the US is the only country in the world that can print as much money as it wants and, last but not least, the US has a huge nuclear arsenal. As a result, a US collapse would threaten everybody and that means that nobody would want to trigger one. The collapse of the Soviet Union threatened the rest of mankind only in one way: by its nuclear arsenal. In contrast, any collapse of the United States would threaten everybody in many different ways.
So the real question now is this: can the rest of the planet prevent a catastrophic collapse of the AngloZionist Empire?
This is the irony of our situation: even though the entire planet is sick and tried of the incompetent arrogance of the AngloZionists, nobody out there wants their Empire to catastrophically collapse. And yet, with the Neocons in power, such a collapse appears inevitable with potentially devastating consequences for everybody.
This is really amazing, think of it: everybody hates the Neocons, not only a majority of the American people, but truly the entire planet. And yet that numerically small group of people has somehow managed to put everybody in danger, including themselves, due to their ugly vindictiveness, infinite arrogance and ideology-induced short-sightedness. That this could ever have happened, and at a planetary scale, is a dramatic testimony to the moral and spiritual decay of our civilization: how did we ever let things get that far?!
And the next obvious question: can we still stop them?
I honestly don’t know. I hope so, but I am not sure. My biggest hope with Trump was that he would be willing to sacrifice the Empire for the sake of the USA (the opposite of what the Neocons are doing: they are willing to sacrifice the USA for the sake of their Empire) and that he would manage a relatively safe and hopefully non-violent transition from Empire to “normal country” for the USA. Clearly, this is ain’t happening. Instead, the Neocons are threatening everybody: the Chinese, the Russians, the North Koreans and the Venezuelans of course, but also the Europeans (economically), the entire Middle-East (via the “only democracy in the Middle-East”), all the developing countries and even the American people. Heck, they are even threatening the US President himself, and in not-so-subtle ways!
So what’s next?
Truly, I don’t know. But my overwhelming sense is that Trump will be removed from office, either for “high crimes and misdemeanors” or for “medical reasons” (they will simply declare him insane and unfit to be the President). Seeing how weak and spineless Trump is, he might even be “convinced” to resign. I don’t see them simply murdering him simply because he is no Kennedy either. After that, Pence comes to power and it will all be presented like a wonderful event, a group-hug of the elites followed by an immediate and merciless crackdown on any form of political opposition or dissent which will immediately be labeled as racist, homophobic, anti-Semitic, terrorist, etc. The evil hand of the “Russian KGB” (yes, I know, the KGB was dissolved in 1991) will be found everywhere, especially amongst US libertarians (who will probably the only ones with enough brains to understand what is taking place). The (pseudo-) “Left” will rejoice. Should this course of action result in an unexpected level or resistance, either regional or social, a 9-11 false flag followed by a war will the most likely scenario (why stray away from something which worked so well the first time around?!). Unless the USA decides to re-invade Grenada or give Nauru a much deserved thrashing, any more or less real war will result in a catastrophic failure for the USA at which point the use of nukes by the Neocon crazies might become a very real risk, especially if symbolic US targets such as aircraft carriers are hit (in 1991 when the US sent the 82nd AB to Iraq there was nothing standing between this light infantry force and the Iraqi armored divisions. Had the Iraqis attacked the plan was to use tactical nuclear weapons. Then this was all quickly forgotten).
There is a reason why the Neocons thrive in times of crisis: it allows them to hide behind the mayhem, especially when they are the ones who triggered the mayhem in the first place. This means that as long as the Neocons are anywhere near in power they will never, ever, allow peace to suddenly break out, lest the spotlight be suddenly shined directly upon them. Chaos, wars, crises – this is their natural habitat. Think of it as the by-product of their existence. Eventually, of course, they will be stopped and they will be defeated, like all their predecessors in history. But I shudder when I think of the price mankind will have to pay this time around.
This BS has been going on now for over 100+ years.
Want to know how it will end ?
Brush up on your reading of “The Protocols of Zion”.
Any one in the civilised world, must stop buying American products.
I admit to not being some papered scholar or one of US intelligencia but what this article points out is what I have , not just felt but known was coming for a long while.
It is not Republican or democrat but a vast decay and breakdown of morality and a turn towards some weired form of situational ethics.
As a well read and more than casual student of historical events and what surrounded them I have long felt that as bibical Solomon is supposed to of said: There is nothing new under the sun.
My old Irish gramps told me over 60 years ago, That they who do not just know history but think beyond it into the consequences that brought it about; then you are as a babeborn this morn.
As Alexis de Toqueville said: Americans idea of democracy will make them even worthless to themselves.
That is where this author so poignantly points too, we are f’n helpless to control our own destiny.
Good Evening Saker,
Thank you for another excellent and well informed article. As with much of what you write I can only, with great sadness agree. In semi retirement I live on the West coast of Vancouver Island but, prior to this have spent very many years working and living in China & other parts of Asia. (For a major US multinational company for my shame)
As an old Chinese saying goes; “we live in interesting times” – in fact this is a Chinese ‘curse’ – but most appropriate for these times.
I doubt that there is anything that the ‘ordinary’ person can do in such times other than to prepare as best that they can – and pray; but I wish you and your readers the very best.
Again, thank you for your articles.
2007-2008: Unprecedented financial collapse occurs in U.S. and spreads globally. Deep state apparatchiks do not solve problem but double down on the same money printing debt policies that led to it and lower the Federal Reserve fund rate to virtually 0%, kicking the can down the road: bubbles grow bigger, more numerous and debt explodes to inconceivable levels. (a 20 trillion dollar national debt and over 200 trillion in unfunded liabilities according to US senate testimony). Ongoing collapse cannot be averted since the faux economic driver (interest rate reduction inflation policy) and reserve currency status of the dollar is at end stage. Debt can never be repaid.
After the Vietnam war and 60s revolution, gold backed dollar discipline was eliminated in 1971 giving free reign to the fiat monetary system. Debt and basis point (interest rate) reduction and attending inflation (theft) underwrote artificial economic growth, replacing off-shored production and manufacturing with financial asset, speculative and confiscatory job sectors: big government, healthcare, social services, building, pharmacy, equities, education, law, insurance, finance and spinoffs; presently well over half the full-time US workforce. As rates descended, ill-gotten windfalls from theft (inflation), deficit spending and redistribution hit families and the poor, who took the brunt of the blow. Happily, government expanded proportionally to offset repercussions by expanding the desolating craft. After 08, acceleration of debt, taxes, printing and premiums catalyzed speculative/confiscatory sectors, sealing America’s economic fate and future generations upon whom bank-backed opportunist and deficit spending labor profits.
Even with 9 years of ZIRP (zero percent interest rate policy) in place since the unprecedented 08 earthquake, GDP remained negative according to traditional accounting methods. In any other “bubble-blowing cycle”, unparalleled “inflation growth” (theft), would have resulted from ZIRP.
In reality, economic indicators, debt inflation and job stats are presently worse than those preceding 08. The DS is well aware that fiat economics are short lived and that 08 signifies the death nail.
To distract from ominous post 08 circumstances, the DS media complex diligently engineered obfuscation campaigns by painting false rosy economic pictures and manipulating financial statistics: job, CPI (inflation), GDP numbers, etc. to maintain systemic cradle-wreaking confidence. Concomitantly, it provoked wars and threats of war through color revolutions and propaganda with the following goals: increase funding for the military industrial complex, protect wealth transfer policy from poor to rich and subsidized sectors, overthrow Eastern sovereigns and install WT policies by setting up dollar friendly foreign puppets-exploit resources, open border doors to increase consumption and trumpet so called security threats causing citizens to relinquish liberties for safety.
September 15, 2008 major banks collapse: Lehman Brothers files bankruptcy-Bear Sterns, Merrill Lynch, AIG, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, HBOS, Royal Bank of Scotland, Bradford & Bingley, Fortis, Hypo and Alliance & Leicester were all expected to follow. The illegal Federal Reserve bails all out except Lehman by printing money out of thin air (QE 1, 2 3, operation twist and stealth QE). Trillions of worthless dollars are covertly swapped to prevent bond market and European economic collapse.
Months before the 1998 financial calamity, project for the new America century (PNAC) was conceived and updated in 2000 with the goal of taking control of Middle East countries. Weeks after 9/11, NATO supreme commander, General Wesley Clark announces on video https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=SXS3vW47mOE that 7 Middle East countries are targeted for overthrow, but evidence points to US ally, Saudi Arabia, funding 9/11 hijackers https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DVyGF3QlDno ; not a finger is lifted against this greatest human rights violating regime. Using 9/11 as a pretext: Iraq and Libya are subsequently overthrown and ongoing attempts are made against Syria, Yemen and Iran. Millions of Christians, Muslims, children and innocents are and continue being plundered, killed, maimed or displaced; In the meantime, president Trump signs the largest arms sales agreement in US history with terror training hub, SA.
2003: US congress passes and president Bush signs the “Syria Accountability Act”.
2005: After turning Iraq and Libya to ashes, the US state department under president Bush, severs political ties with Syria. The DS funds opposition groups and media campaigns to oppose the Syrian government.
April 25, 2008: Syria in transition conference held; Intent is regime change.
July 29, 2009: 170 page book, “Path to Persia” produced by Brookings institute also explains how the “cradle of Christianity”, is targeted for regime change.
2009-10: The DSMC initiates Syrian color revolution, another leg of the global objective to oust Syria’s elected president and take control of Damascus.
2012: a Pentagon document classified “Secret,” is declassified under legal pressure from Judicial Watch; It states:
“…there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist Principality in eastern Syria (Hasaka and Der Zor), and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition [to Assad-w.e.] want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime”.
Supporting powers are Qatar, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, USA and Israel.
Spiritual Babylon falls, but she will not go down without a singular sleight of hand fight. In dire straights, Abbadon rises in the midst of smoke and mirrors, knowing his window of opportunity to maintain control through printing power is narrow. Pressured by dying king dollar, he strives to secure global socioeconomic hegemony at the point of a bayonet.
Most likely right on and what the American people need to read/hear. We are in deep do doo, and nobody seems aware of it.
For my own part I cannot forsee any catastrophic collapse of the American/Eurocentric Empire, at least in the form of loss of power by them.
Economics is all a matter of perception, a case in point is when the German Republic fell to the NAZI’s; It was stability in the commoners lives that was far more pursuasive than their individual access to wealth generation.
The populace actually accepted a lower standard of living under the NAZI’S than they had before WWI.
They accepted a strict regimentation of every facet of their lives, from loss of assembly of any politicsl topics, Educators accepted the rewriting of Germanys historical cultures and tauhht the youth as if it were truth.
Even with an increase in #’s of bureaucracy who earned less than their earlier counterparts it was they that enforced the cultural memory loss and structured the new socio economic orderings. They also liked their power and prestige of poditions, and as in US today the bureaucratic clas was rewarded far greater than civilian workforce.
Our present deification of those in military and police uniforms with their elevation to super citizen status of uniform to grave pay closely mimics the early rise of volunteerism for that military; What with our present permanent rewards to veterans of even non combat grades thst numbers in the tens of millions whose loyalty has been to the Corp for generations now, that loyalty of being seperate and above mere citizens will by patriotism.
As in Liverpool Experience where populace dropped like flies from black lung and cancersunder permanent blavk airs nevrr stopped men from taking thhe dead and dying jobs
Nor did it stop birthrates or men moving families into that pest hole.
We already have tens of millions living on partial retirement pension and declining healthcare benefits than what they should recieve.
No the American public will accept a declining standardof living without a whimper.
And while waving flags they will continue to breed the seed corn military financials need.
Already ee have over one hundred thousand active duty military, even spec ops, who have been citizens for less than 5 years or only since enlisting, who never were a psrt of Americana.
Asbalways and is evident today procies like Irsq, Syrians,Afghanistan and multiple Africans and latinos are willing to kill for American dollars.
While ee of today. And of past might well decry the living conditions of future generations if we could jump to that time, those living in that time would know no different standards.
The Oligarchy now forming world wide will be set in place soon enough.
The only problem I have with this this projection scenario is that Saker leaves out what Russia – and China – might do. He seems to see them as passive, supine jellyfish, just lying there letting the Neocons do whatever they like.
Remember, it was Putin in 2007 in Munich who started the ball rolling by pointing out the elephant in the room. It was Putin who got up at the 70th anniversary of the UN and told America that Russia had had enough – and then went into Syria which it has, along with the Syrians, held and turned around. It is also Putin who has said “never again will Russia fight a defensive warfare on her own soil” and “when you see a fight is inevitable, strike first”.
Putin, with his extensive, high level KGB training, his years of work there and in international politics has a range and depth of knowledge and experience not one of these zombie Neocon brain dead idiots has even a smell of.
I dont see him or Xi just sitting back and letting it happen. If push comes to shove, they may indeed help the crash, as long as they have protected Russia Federation and China. The rest of the world might just have to take it’s chances.
“the Neocons are threatening everybody”
We should come at the first of your list Saker, what are you doing as usual.
You still have no idea or interest in my country, or with us the Japanese either.
Why can you ignore what we are getting imposed for the so-called alliance thing, practical “punishment”.
This alliance thing is never a feature of the result of our choice.
You should regret that you had never been serious about east Asian affairs, or about having even a single Japanese friend to add your folks list.
You are truly fantastically wrong. In fact, I dare say that I know the Japanese people very well. I don’t write about East-Asia because right now the “action” so to speak is elsewhere. Just like I never wrote about the Ukraine before 2014. And when you write that “This alliance thing is never a feature of the result of our choice.” you are preaching to the choir, I am quite aware of that too. However, since WWII all your government were composed of spineless lackeys and there is still no credible national liberation movement in Japan, that is an undeniable fact. Should one appear, I promise to write about it.
However, “Trump will be removed from office” is mostly what I agree with.
Bannon has left Trump, saying “our kind of Trump presidency is over”.
This speaks volume because the presidency is almost what Bannon had planned and promoted and won.
Now Bannon gave it up because he see that no longer the same feature he committed”, while his ranting of “I’ll keep fighting for the president” sounds vacant, just like his leaving gift for his ex-boss.
I think there’s a big chance that Trump out of the blue makes an announce of his resignation before no one notices.
Like Bannon being silent all the while though he already submitted a resignation on August 8.
WOW, this is quite close to the truth what will happen with this planet. USA has proven in the past to use the ultimate weapon of TOTAL destruction on Hiroshima & Nagasaki as a strategic experiment. Today with a STUPID NEOCON ELITE in US Congress and an isolated president in the White House you’ve to shiver at the thought of another explosion of military aggression!
In contrast to the Cuban crisis with an intelligent President Kennedy a nuclear conflict was prevented but with the neocons in power a nuclear war has become a realistic scenario!
Thank you Saker for your clear & honest analysis!
while this expose’ is well thought out .i find a few foibles .first what is the neocon plan what are they really for??globalism is just a name doesn’t describe who will sit on top and rule .i think i know but it must be spelled out. second that statement that no older people belief the american narrative.wrong , very wrong.all and i mean all who are my age are ww2 type patriots buy everything of the narrative .and the rest of american s if 10% pay any attention to the narrative only the lead lines of the evening news .the rest are completely uninvolved and want it that way, and will tell you so. i go out to the malls and walk them and speak to people mostly young.they haven t a clue about anything only their device driven propagandized minds .so exactly who are [[we]] saving this regime for?? and what would a major nuclear conflict do for them?? with the planet radioactive.miami bch won’t look so great,no bikinis,or thongs. non of this makes any real sense .and to just say well they are just plain crazy doesn’t either.
Maybe the US will be destroyed by good old commerce. Recently, two American warship have been damaged, hit by merchant tankers, with considerable loss of life of US sailors and other injuries.
The foreign merchant ships have probably be taken over by Russian KGB pirates without a shot being fired.
Perhaps we just have to wait for America’s manifest destiny to collide with more”free trade” on the high seas. Unseen, because these merchants are but an illusion on one of America’s lakes and are not really there until reality hits.
PERILOUS TIMES INDEED.
Probably not a good time for black humour.
Then again; perhaps the total eclipse over the US is indeed an omen, known only to the ancients, portending collapse of the chosen ones or being eaten by the Chinese dragon or Russian wolf.
Agreeing to a high extend!

Two pictures i saw day before election, First was an ice-capped volcano with huge erupting fire, A voice said,”The fire of truth is shattering the ice [cruelty] of lies,” The other picture was Trump [not elected yet] with a huge fishing pole standing at the edge of a large body of water. The reel was running free and way out was something huge [do not know] at the end of the line. Daily see same pictures. Since then I pray even harder. Salvation is the bottom line for all persons. So please pray. Sandy Acosta
Sad but true … and most folks that I know care not enough to understand it even …
I believe Ian Anderson and Jethro Tull in 1977 had a pretty good handle on our situation today. Who would have guessed?
I love the train analogy and has been my feeling for awhile now. Brought to mind a song from my high school days:
Good article can anyone supply us with a list of these neocons.
You are probably right at this point. Don’t count Trump out yet.
…I don’t know if it is possible to pull off another “911” on grounds that by now…awareness of the true nature of that event is quite wide spread and that comes on top of so many other revelations…
Another “manufactured atrocity” would have had to be in the planning for some time now, but…anything is possible…
The US does have one advantage “if the ship goes down” – there are life boats…they are called “the states” – all of them perfectly capable of governing themselves, no supervision from D.C. required…
In my opinion, a “better future” is possible for Americans, but not if retaining a dysfunctional and unjustifiable union-construct is seen as more important than all else…”saving the union” is not in and of itself a “value”…and if “democracy” is desired, then a supra-state construct is entirely antithetical to any such quest.
When power is concentrated the best are displaced by the worst for they have no scruples and will get the jo done. Frederick Hayek in the ROAD TO SERFDOM published in 1944 describing Germany 1940. This I believe explains Hilary Clinton. The race to the top of the most ruthless of the ruthless. The problem is concentrated power. The solution is the decentralization of power. Is the “”devolution of power”” a synonym of decentralization of power. Who says “”the devolution of power”” Also Hayek wrote “”the end of truth”” is a result of concentrated power. Consider CNN ,NBC, ABC. also socialism causes racism”” So to reduce racism back away from socialism
