Why Mainstream Media Refuses to Report the West's Shocking New Colonialism
To ask the question is to answer it. The Western mainstream media seems entirely controlled and beholden to globalist interests emanating in part from the City of London. Reports and exposes of neo-colonialism are not likely to find a place on the front pages of the great dailies and weeklies of the old-line press – nor even on websites controlled by it.
There is another answer, too, that I will provide at the end of this article. It is simple and blunt. Thus you may skip the article if you want. Or you may read on ...
Democracy is said to be on the rise in the Middle East, yet all democracy is evidently not created equal. Democratic movements in Egypt and Tunisia are said to have won out. Yet similar movements in Bahrain, Yemen and Saudi Arabia – inconvenient by Western standards – are neither encouraged nor widely reported.
This makes sense only when one realizes the truth about what is going on. The world's great, intergenerational banking families have embarked on a new spate of colonialism to disenfranchise their enemies and empower their allies. Those regimes in developing countries that endorse power-elite goals will be allowed to function. Otherwise they will be destabilized.
Hardly a whisper regarding what is evidently and obviously a deliberate policy of "neo-colonialism" has been heard from the West's mainstream media. Thus it was with interest that I read an article in yesterday's online version of The Hindu, India's "national newspaper" entitled The Manufacture of Consensus and Legitimacy. Author M.S. Prabhakara deals with many of the issues raised in these electronic pages in the past few weeks.
Prabhakara has pretty much figured it out – as we have over the past few months. He believes the recent conflicts in the Middle East and Africa raise important questions about the limits of national sovereignty, as United Nations resolutions were used to justify invasions into both Libya and the Ivory Coast. Here's some more from the article:
Foreign armed intervention to save the people from their own governments and leaders became inevitable. The question who decides that there is indeed a mass uprising that is being repressed with such violence by the very state that is supposed to protect its people becomes irrelevant in an environment where the media and 'civil society' exert enormous influence in moulding national and international opinion, and something else called R2P. And thereby hangs a tale.
This new and evolving doctrine that has legitimised foreign intervention to remove leaders like Qadhafi on the ground that they have become 'enemies of the people' was crafted through an 'international consensus' during the 2005 UN World Summit and has come to be known as the International Coalition for the Responsibility to Protect (R2P, in the jargon of the new language order). This consensus was manufactured by NGOs networking with the United Nations and other national and international human rights organisations.
The Preamble [to the R2P doctrine] drips with moral commitment to protect the 'people' against their own governments, even if these were to be elected governments. It also raises many questions. For instance, the mechanisms built in democratic polities to remove elected governments that have become oppressive are not even taken into consideration because the state and its elected representatives have become corrupt beyond redemption, unlike the 'civil society' that is axiomatically seen as immaculate, unstained.
The key point raised in the article is that "above all, this very 'international community' now entrusted with the 'responsibility to assist the states in fulfilling this responsibility,' to protect their population from genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing, has itself waged war against their own people, committed genocides."
And, yes, this is the critical issue. Prabhakara catches the heart of it: "Put simply, instrumentalities such as the R2P [we've reported on this previously, along with the under-the-radar abrogation of the Peace of Westphalia] devised by the 'international community,' like the ongoing demeaning of the democratic political process in India by positing against it 'non-political politics,' are yet another weapon being crafted to assist the relentless process of recolonisation under way in many formerly colonised countries."
What Prabhakara doesn't cover – perhaps there is a limit to what can be discussed in one article – is the larger distortion of elite rhetoric when it comes to the new neocolonialism. In Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Yemen, the West, Western elites more and more are justifying torture, illicit imprisonment and outright murder. The decline of civil society is not just rhetorical. Saudi Arabian troops have murdered and maimed hundreds of civilians at home and in Bahrain with the West's implicit blessing.
The myth of al-Qaeda, at least initially an American invention, has been enlarged and elaborated on until the nonsensical War on Terror itself has taken on mythical proportions. Muammar Gaddafi of Libya, only a few months ago a dependable Western ally, is suddenly a marked man; NATO bombs his residences with impunity, kills one of his sons and three of his grandchildren and hardly bothers to apologize.
Neocolonialism's New Brutality is evident everywhere. American troops invade Pakistan to attack the residence of a faux bin Laden, and kill, wound or capture whoever unfortunately resides there and then the country's leaders trumpet the raid as a great American achievement. The mind-bending spectacle of Western leaders celebrating the cold-blooded murder ("tapping") of a man who probably died years ago was only exceeded by the next wave of deliberate rhetoric that claimed that "unusual interrogations" – torture – helped reveal his location.
It is all evil and deliberate – a media promotion featuring a complex interweaving of violent dominant and sub-dominant social themes. The world's single super-power has, as Dick Cheney reportedly suggested it should, moved toward the Dark Side, and is taking much of the world with it. Celebrations of killing, justifications of torture, the imposition of the hallmarks of a police state at home and the support of neo-colonialism abroad all inform us that America is changing for the worse.
Yes, it is chilling. When America lies, its allies lie, too. When American leaders tell deliberate untruths and treat human lives as if they are entertainment in so-called snuff-films, those who live in the shadow of the world's super-mono-power are left to mumble in unison or face the consequences. It goes for the media too, of course. These days, instead of celebrating businessmen, America's mainstream media mostly lionizes the military class – its brilliant generals and intrepid warriors.
Instead of profiles of entrepreneurs, the media is filled with stories about America's overseas combatants and courageous soldiers. Such soldiers are courageous but they are also killing others and maiming themselves for what might be considered very questionable objectives.
Two terrible wars and incessant, unnecessary spending have virtually bankrupted the US. Yet war continues, poisoning the land with depleted uranium and killing women and children who get caught in the crossfire or bombed by misguided drone attacks.
Those who oppose them in America seem helpless to stop the violence that is being projected in their name. America's leaders are pressing Iraq to allow American troops to stay in the country in great numbers. In Afghanistan, troop drawdowns have been pushed back from 2012 to 2014 and now beyond.
But the main issue – the most astonishing and unheralded even of the unfolding 21st century – is the West's sudden expansion of neo-colonialism and the accompaniment savage, reprehensible rhetoric by its leaders, especially in America, Britain and France. Afghanistan and Iraq were just an appetizer after all.
To me it seems obvious. Just as with the Gutenberg Press long ago, the elites have lost control of the ability to control society via fear-based promotions because of what we have taken to calling the Internet Reformation. The elites, therefore, are evidently and obviously doing what they can to combat this reformation – this awakening – by causing economic turmoil and military confrontations.
Both tactics have as their goal increased world domination; but these are the bluntest of tools. To watch them being applied by Western leaders is to be astounded by the ability of those who lead the most civilized of societies to endorse the most uncivil and brutal acts.
Here is the answer I promised at the beginning of the article: We seem to be led, unfortunately, by beasts. Is that harsh?

DB: "Yet war continues, poisoning the land with depleted uranium and killing women and children who get caught in the crossfire or bombed by misguided drone attacks."
Quite a few journalists (e.g. WG Tarpley, Thierry Meyssan, Milovan Drecun, Mahdi Nazemroaya) believe that present-day NATO killings of civilians are, in fact, deliberate. For one, the military technology is sufficiently developed to avoid many of the so-called incidents. Two, targeting civilian buildings in towns and cities (as in Libya and Somalia) is simply a war crime under international law.

Colonialism has couple faces. Another face is fate of eastern euuropean countries which joined EU. Reality is that living standard is still lower than last years of opressive communism. Here is some statistics. Author compared Denmark and Slovakia. While Slovakia has 60% of produktivity of Denmark, only 17% income. Colonization fee is paid. One example. Porsche Cayenne and VW Touareg are both made in Bratislava. But Cayenne is shipped by train to Germany for finalization an sticker Made in Germany.
Not long time ego I have read article on mainstream how eastern europeans are upset with democracy. If I have stone I ll throw rite between his eyes, paraphrase Jesus. Eastern Europeans are not upset with democracy. They are upset with looters.

There is on really great book: Terrorism and the Illuminati: A Three Thousand Year History.
Terrorism and the Illuminati traces and connects individual groups such as the Holy Grail, Freemasonry, the Knights Templar and many others. Lords, legends, myths and elite bloodlines, when analyzed independently appear insignificant and are easily ignored. However, when the dots are connected, a very different picture beings to come into focus. According to like-minded individuals, keeping these connections broken and the lines blurred, has allowed these secret societies and their members to operate in the shadows of a meticulously cultivated public image.

. . .
until the atrocities committed at Fort Detrick and all over the planet under the name of MKULTRA by the CIA - the criminal acts of western governments will continue to grow.
The Nazi's were doing their crimes in broad daylight.
The CIA is doing all it's crimes undercover & CONFIDENTIAL.
Look at MKULTRA at Fort Detrick and other places - all these crimes up to mass murder were perpetrated with 1.600 Nazi criminals to begin with (operation paperclip).
As society is drugged into oblivion - no one seems to realize, that facism did not end with the Nuremberg trials, but was given a new, secret home in America.

This phenomenon isn't too surprising; just follow the money. Most media needs to appeal to the masses in order to satisfy their viewers/readers and sell ads on behalf of corporations. Most Americans would rather live in blissful ignorance than confront the uncomfortable truths of our foreign policy.

We are watching some very self-destructive behavior now.
I suspect we are going to devolve into to some weird combination of mixing Blade Runner, Escape form New York, and Road Warrior.
We are seeing home invasions and hijacking of vehicles rocketing in the denser pop areas. Not much near me, but it's lower in pop, and many Combat Vets live here, so we are well armed.
But still, it's time for me to re-certify as an Armorer, and upgrade my Gunsmith skills.
And there is going to be a good demand for a decent Gunsmith. The same from Blade makers.
We are going to take Two giant steps back in this game.
A lot of people are currently buying Gold and silver, and have forgotten that now thy have to keep it from the local jackals, who may have already found out that they have purchased the metals.
Gold/silver dealers usually have great security for their inventory. In my area, the two Gold dealers are also Gun dealers, so they have their problem solved.
The customer is on his own.
Sad that we have to think like this now, but it's the new reality.

I take it that you watched "The Prisoner" at least once in your life. I recommend it to everyone on the list.
However, I do not share your view that America could emerge from this mess with some sense of true freedom and liberty restored. A narcissistic, psychopathic people, even if the union shatters, will just operate their evil on a smaller scale. That could make things much more difficult because it is easier to affect a state's population personally than an empire's.
What will be necessary to achieve a recovery of liberty is a comprehensive war. If you are old enough to read and comprehend these articles and write well-considered feedback, you will not likely see the end of this war or the recovery.
I find it interesting to see Americans tattoo and pierce themselves like savages. We have not seen such in the West since perhaps the Picts and Celts in Britain 2 000 years ago, if I correctly recall. Perhaps this is something like a tourism to see what it is like to play uncivilized.
This also extends to American business practice: "It is not personal, just business" justifying destruction under facade. Business is personal, try doing a deal with a brick.
As this continues to expand, soon we see wholesale destruction on a scale dwarfing last month's weather in the USA. Then and only then will Americans perhaps understand. These people will have to learn their lessons the hard way, even harder than what Europeans went through seventy-odd years ago.
They are going to learn self-respect, boundaries and responsibility, up close and personal when what they have done returns. That is a prerequisite to having a free society, which incidentally, does not come free.

So far, the paper money mafia mobsters still do what they want. A good example is the gold and silver price slam last week and their actions worldwide. Although more people are catching on to the actual existence of that mafia and become aware of what it is up to - thanks to the internet - it appears that we are still far from effective resistance. If we are in an internet reformation, it's still very early days. Proof: recent elections anywhere. It will take more than a slight move to the right to dislodge our degenerate bloody monsters. The potency of the internet (although very desirable) that Mr. Wile's is romantically waxing about, remains to be demonstrated. As of now, it is a mere nuisance to the mobsters.
Among those 3 mentioned battles that the mafia lost, only the one about global warming can be credited to the internet.
Many have lost in Afghanistan in the past, and Europe is such an awful monster that sooner or later it has to disintegrate on its own, with or without internet.
But hopefully, the internet WILL wake up more people and produce the critical mass that is required to get rid of the money mobsters who really are overreaching this time.

Obviously, we disagree. We believe the Internet HAS made a difference in Afghanistan and one only has to read Taliban press releases to see how tapped-in they are to US media sentiment. The Taliban are not generally speaking the kinds of people you might want running a country but they are engaged in a genuine liberation struggle for their country. The US and NATO are beginning to recognize the legitimacy by negotiating with them.
As far as the EU goes, that's easy. The Internet has surely spread the word about what's REALLY gone on with the EU elites and the PIGS and made it easier or organize protests. The impact of the Internet is not always recognizable but the changes in the "hive mind" are increasingly apparent and not, we would argue, a coincidence.

JAEGER: Excellent article by Anthony Wile.
WILE: Here is the answer I promised at the beginning of the article: We seem to be led, unfortunately, by beasts. Is that harsh?
JAEGER: I think it's spot on. Since America's main export these days is products from its military-industrial-complex, it's easy to see that this country has entered the "dark side," led by such beasts. The factions that have hijacked the U.S. Government have been put on notice, however. Their days are numbered. As the RON PAUL REVOLUTION, a.k.a., the Tea Party Movement, heats up, you can bet some heads will be rolling, politically that is. Only after the U.S. Congress has been flushed clean of the the brutes and opportunists that now infest its halls, can there be meaningful change. Change that enacts term-limits, rescinds the Federal Reserve Act, and flushes the PATRIOT Act down the toilet like the anti-Constitutional, crap it is. Americans are pissed-off. Ron Paul is now in the presidential race. The Globalists that print their fiat currencies to bribe and invade will soon be on the run. Americans have done it before. There is no reason to think they can't do it again. Let the hunt begin.

Actually I am mistaken, and the footage is not so far 'off' as I thought. It takes about 2.45822233723 times as long as an object to fall the same distance on the Moon as it does on Earth. That is pretty darn close to 2x. Just plug in the value "1" in the the first field of each the Moon & the Earth and you'll get the comparison I got. Do the same for the second field. Very similar result. Do it for the third (which is the one I should have used to begin with) and the time ratio is the 2.5::1 instead of 4::1. This actually supports the footage. I did not consider the second second acceleration in my first test. 2.5::1 is still significantly different than 2::1, but perceptibly is probably difficult to distinguish.

We have in place, as signed by the POTUS, implementation of Marshall Law. Living in California, our economy is in a stranglehold. My Wife teaches adult ESL twice daily to striving adult-undocumented individuals. While the POTUS is hustling these hispanics presently, educational budgeting here has vanished. At my wife's facility in Los Angeles, the ESL budget is now slashed from 3.2M to 1.3M, with further restrainth expected. However, at the same time, VoEd has been stimulated with a government program to train personnel (Returning Veterans preferred) in a program as to how to Transport Prisoners. ?!&%$#@. Might ift be that should the current POTUS achieve re-election, with the Bible put back on the shelf, might we soon see implemented, with trained personnel, Martial Law? God Help Us ALL!

Amazing how all this deceit and fraud is usually wrapped in a packaging to "do good for the World". And when the inevitable disaster occurs, they always start the "but we meant meant well" mantra.
What's scary here is that the herd always buys into this device.

"Not denying that some people are anally focused on envy..."
Now Bill Ross, I resemble that remark. Anally focused, that's me!
That those in power use human envy to manipulate should not be such a strange concept. That many (including many that comment regularly here) have found ways to see around this manipulation is also rather obvious. If some can do it, what excuse do the rest have? Even while controlled via manipulation, people still make choices.
Those in power prefer to use whatever tools available that allow for manipulation, in preference to tools that are overtly forceful. Manipulating the fact of human envy is one such tool available to those in power.
I cannot give my fellow citizens a mulligan because they are manipulated. Many have broke free of this manipulation. Those who have not get no free pass.
If they remove their consent and their envy, the current system will fail. All that will then be left is war, and I will take the 6 billion over the small handful in that case.

Not denying that some people are anally focused on envy, but only allows control of some (And also blatantly obvious, easily fought). More realistic (fits observed facts better), here:
In 1960, electrical engineer William Powers, physicist Robert Clark, and clinical psychologist Robert Mcfarland published a two-part article titled, A General Feedback Theory of Human Behavior. In 1973, Powers published the first book on cybernetics and control-system concepts to human behavior -- Behavior: The Control of Perception
