WikiLeaks - Η κούρσα των Δυτικών νεο-αποικιοκρατών πάνω από το Λιβυκό πτώμα

10 χρόνια WikiLeaks

Στις 16 Μαρτίου 2016, τα WikiLeaks δημοσίευσαν ένα αρχείο 30.322 ηλεκτρονικών επιστολών, οι οποίες μπορούν να ερευνηθούν με τη χρήση λέξεων-κλειδιών, από και προς τον προσωπικό email server της Χίλαρι Κλίντον, την εποχή που διατελούσε υπουργός εξωτερικών των ΗΠΑ. Τα έγγραφα των 50.547 σελίδων, εκτείνονται σε μια περίοδο από τις 30 Ιουνίου του 2010 έως τις 12 Αυγούστου του 2014. 7.570 από τα έγγραφα αυτά εστάλησαν από την Χίλαρι Κλίντον. Τα έγγραφα διατέθηκαν σε μορφή PDF από το υπουργείο εξωτερικών των ΗΠΑ με αίτημα στα πλαίσια του Νόμου περί Ελευθερίας της Πληροφόρησης (Freedom of Information Act).


Μια επιστολή από τον Sidney Blumenthal, κορυφαίο σύμβουλο του ζεύγους Κλίντον, προς την Χίλαρι Κλίντον στα μέσα Σεπτεμβρίου του 2011, αποκαλύπτει περισσότερες εντυπωσιακές λεπτομέρειες σχετικά με την εξέλιξη της κούρσας των Δυτικών συμμάχων στην κατεστραμμένη Λιβύη, προκειμένου να εξασφαλίσουν μια προνομιακή θέση για τις εταιρίες τους στις πλουτοπαραγωγικές πηγές της χώρας.

Φαίνεται ότι οι Βρετανοί κατάφεραν να μπουν "σφήνα" στην νεο-αποικιοκρατική κούρσα, για να πάρουν και αυτοί το μερίδιό τους για τις εταιρίες τους. Ωστόσο, η ανησυχία τους ήταν έντονη καθώς, παρά τη Βρετανική υποστήριξη προς τους αντάρτες, ορισμένα μέλη του εθνικού μεταβατικού συμβουλίου (National Transitional Council - NTC), δεν ξέχασαν ότι η Βρετανική κυβέρνηση και οι εταιρίες πετρελαιοειδών είχαν καλές σχέσεις με το καθεστώς Καντάφι.

Επιπλέον, ο Blumenthal φαίνεται να εκφράζει και κάποια ανακούφιση, καθώς όπως περιγράφει, ο πρόεδρος του εθνικού μεταβατικού συμβουλίου, Mustafa Abdul Jalil, ήταν πρόθυμος να δώσει προτεραιότητα στις Γαλλικές, Αγγλικές και Αμερικανικές εταιρίες, εξαιτίας της στήριξης που παρείχαν οι χώρες αυτές κατά τη διάρκεια της εξέγερσης κατά του Καντάφι.

Έτσι, καθώς όλο και περισσότεροι παίχτες έμπαιναν στο παιχνίδι "λεηλασία της Λιβύης", οι Γάλλοι κινητοποιήθηκαν για να εξασφαλίσουν ένα μίνιμουμ ποσοστό στο Λιβυκό πετρέλαιο για λογαριασμό των εταιριών τους. Όπως περιγράφεται στην επιστολή, η Γαλλία διεξήγαγε ένα συντονισμένο σχέδιο δημόσιας και ιδιωτικής διπλωματίας για να πιέσει τη νέα μεταβατική κυβέρνηση της Λιβύης να εξασφαλίσει έως και το 35% της Λιβυκής βιομηχανίας πετρελαίου για τις εταιρίες Γαλλικών συμφερόντων και κυρίως για την μεγάλη Γαλλική εταιρία TOTAL.

Ο Blumenthal εκφράζει επίσης την ανησυχία του για το γεγονός ότι η Κινεζική και Ρωσική οικονομική δραστηριότητα δεν διακόπηκε εντελώς με το νέο καθεστώς, καθώς σύμφωνα με πληροφορίες από τον εμίρη του Κατάρ, ήταν κατά κάποιο τρόπο ευκολότερο για το νέο καθεστώς να συνεχίζει να συνεργάζεται με εταιρίες Ρωσικών συμφερόντων. Η πληροφορία αυτή επιβεβαιώνει την εκτίμηση ότι ένας ακόμα λόγος που οι Δυτικοί νεο-αποικιοκράτες ουσιαστικά επεδίωκαν το χάος στη Λιβύη, ήταν για να αποτρέψουν περαιτέρω τον Ρωσικό και Κινεζικό οικονομικό επεκτατισμό στην περιοχή.

Ένα ακόμα ενδιαφέρον στοιχείο που προκύπτει από την επιστολή, είναι ότι, απ'ότι φαίνεται, τόσο ο Γάλλος πρόεδρος Νικολά Σαρκοζί, όσο και ο Βρετανός πρωθυπουργός, Ντέιβιντ Κάμερον, λειτουργούσαν ουσιαστικά σαν αντιπρόσωποι των μεγάλων εταιριών, πράγμα που δείχνει και την μεγάλη παρακμή των σημερινών πολιτικών "ηγετών".

Έχει ενδιαφέρον επίσης να συγκρίνουμε τη συγκεκριμένη επιστολή με μια παλαιότερη (περίπου τέσσερις μήνες πριν), με τον τίτλο "FRENCH ECONOMIC GRAB", δηλαδή "ΓΑΛΛΙΚΗ ΟΙΚΟΝΟΜΙΚΗ ΑΡΠΑΓΗ", μέσω της οποίας ο Blumenthal έδινε σημαντικές πληροφορίες για την αγωνία των Γάλλων νεο-αποικιοκρατών προκειμένου να εξασφαλίσουν το μονοπώλιο των Λιβυκών πλουτοπαραγωγικών πηγών για τις εταιρίες τους. Εκείνη η επιστολή είχε ένα άρωμα Αμερικανικής δυσαρέσκειας για το γεγονός αυτό. Οι εξελίξεις τέσσερις μήνες αργότερα, δείχνουν ότι οι Αμερικανοί παρακολουθούσαν στενά τη Γαλλική δραστηριότητα στη Λιβύη με σκοπό να μπουν αιφνιδιαστικά μέσα στην κούρσα λεηλασίας της χώρας, μαζί με τους Βρετανούς στενούς τους συμμάχους, όπως και τελικά έγινε.

MSNBC poll on Julian Assange backfires epically

globinfo freexchange
Frequently - if not always - polls set-up by corporate media aim to track public opinion on a specific issue. The results could be used by the deep state apparatus in order to justify an action, or, figure out how to handle a negative trend for the deep state agenda.
Of course, the question could be set-up in a very simplified and convenient manner, so that the results could be translated accordingly.
Yet, the results from the following MSNBC poll on Julian Assange are so devastating for the deep state planning that leave little room for any misconception and manipulation.
Specifically, you have two options to answer the following question: “Should Julian Assange be prosecuted for his involvement in WikiLeaks?
The first option is to answer that "Yes, he is a criminal."
The second option is to answer that "No, he is a whistleblower and deserves protection."
At the time we checked out the results, the second answer prevailed overwhelmingly with 95% (~1…

Trump's failure to start a civil war in Venezuela could be proved disastrous for the plans of the US imperialists

by system failure
Donald Trump and his bloodthirsty warhawks are about to break the record of failed attempted coups against a single country. Concerning Latin America, the US imperialists were setting the desirable conditions for their corporate beasts usually by overthrowing governments and supporting military dictatorships.
But Trump himself has already broken another record. The record of not keeping his promises to the American people - every one of them. The 'anti-interventionist', 'anti-establishment' Trump, has already started a war against Venezuela, which so far includes brutal economic sanctions, sabotage operations, attempted coups. Trump not only does whatever he can in order to satisfy the US neocon/neoliberal establishment and the deep state, but especially in the case of Venezuela, he follows the obsolete CIA playbook to the letter.
So, after a series of failed orchestrated coups, Trump's warhawks attempted to start a civil war in Venezuela by mobiliz…

Former top US official confirms: military action against Venezuela will become a Vietnam 2.0 for the US imperialists

globinfo freexchange
Former US Chief of Staff for Secretary of State, Lawrence Wilkerson, spoke with Sharmini Peries of the Real News about Trump's plans for a potential US military action against Venezuela.

As he pointed out:
Elliott Abrams, Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, and the administration’s approach to Venezuela, is as if they were Panama or they were Honduras. They are not. They’re very professional. That puts them above Argentina, above Chile, whose militaries are quite competent, too. 
Mr. Trump ought to be very, very careful about saying he’s going to send marines or soldiers to Venezuela because the Venezuelan military will be unified immediately. It will take to the hills and it will fight as the Vietnamese did during the Vietnam War, and as the Taliban are in Afghanistan right now: to the last marine, to the last soldier.
Putin is a smart man, probably told Trump 'you don’t want to get involved in those jungles. You don’t want to get involved in those mountains. You …

Latest ridiculous attempts by the US propaganda machine on Gaza, Venezuela – enjoy

globinfo freexchange
Plenty of propaganda is manufactured by the US deep state apparatus to push for the imperialist agenda. Yet, some elements of the propaganda machine are still unable to realize that independent truth seekers and real journalists are watching, and therefore, these elements could be easily exposed.
Sloppy efforts immediately backfire in social media and the Internet. Most recent sloppy efforts are related to Gaza and Venezuela.
As the Newsweekreported:
Senior 2020 Trump campaign adviser Katrina Pierson used a 2015 video showing a Ukrainian rocket launch alongside comments about this weekend's deadly attacks between Israel and Gaza militants and a condemnation of congresswoman Ilhan Omar.
Pierson, who was Donald Trump's 2016 campaign spokesperson and is a frequent cable news guest, shared the video—which was first posted online in 2015 and reportedly shows Ukraine launching dozens of rockets at Russian-backed separatists—on Sunday.

Fox clowns committed suicide by bringing Bernie Sanders inside their nest to destroy them

... and the liberal centrists must be really pissed off
globinfo freexchange
It was epic indeed. The moment where the crowd inside the Fox ultra-right nest enthusiastically cheers in favor of a government-run healthcare system, could actually be considered a historical moment, thanks to Bernie Sanders.
The moment clearly depicts and officially marks the end of controlled audiences in controlled MSM environments. It shows that the well-paid MSM pundits and their producers are finding increasingly difficult to set up the scene according to the desirable agenda. Therefore, audience reactions can't be directed, or predicted in many cases by the MSM 'experts'.
The shock for the MSM tools was inevitable. It shows that they are now completely detached from the ordinary people and their problems.
But the whole thing highlighted something even more fundamental. It was another loud evidence for the fact that the BS neoliberal narratives don't work anymore.
And even more remarkably, th…

CNN sets up a fully controlled audience panel to promote pro-establishment candidates using Bernie Sanders progressive agenda

 An example of advanced psy-ops by the corporate media 

globinfo freexchange

As we wrote recently, the moment where the crowd inside the Fox ultra-right nest enthusiastically cheers in favor of a government-run healthcare system, could actually be considered a historical moment, thanks to Bernie Sanders.

The moment clearly depicts and officially marks the end of controlled audiences in controlled MSM environments. It shows that the well-paid MSM pundits and their producers are finding increasingly difficult to set up the scene according to the desirable agenda. Therefore, audience reactions can't be directed, or predicted in many cases by the MSM 'experts'.
Now, here is an example showing a successful set up through a controlled audience. It took place inside CNN and there is plenty of evidence that was indeed carefully set up. In the following video, Mike Figueredo of the Humanist Report felt optimistic, but also quite frustrated at the same time. Figueredo's reaction …

Chelsea Manning proves that she is a real hero

globinfo freexchange
Outside of an Alexandria, Virginia courtroom, Chelsea Manning explained to reporters why she would refuse to testify before a second grand jury investigating Wikileaks' Julian Assange, and as a result, face jail time once again. On May 9, Manning was released from jail because the term of the last grand jury she refused to testify before expired. She was immediately subpoenaed once again—for May 16.
Her following words clearly depict that Chelsea Manning is a person with strong and solid principles and a real hero:
I will not cooperate with this or any other grand jury, so it doesn’t matter what it is, or what the case is. I’m just not going to comply or cooperate. Facing jail again, potentially today, doesn’t change my stance. The prosecutors are deliberately placing me in an impossible position: go to jail and face the prospect of being held in contempt again, or, in the alternative, foregoing my principles, the strong positions that I have, that I hold dear…

Updates for a possible coup against Jeremy Corbyn

 globinfo freexchange

In this episode of RT's Going Underground, former MP and author of A Very British Coup and The Friends of Harry Perkins, Chris Mullin, spoke about the history of MI5 and MI6 meddling in UK politics against Labour Party leaders. He also estimated whether a British coup is underway against Jeremy Corbyn.
The story of A Very British Coup was set in the 1980s when there was speculation about the possibility of a government led by someone like Tony Benn and the establishment conspired to bring it down. The establishment in this case being a sort of mixture of the security and intelligence services, the media barons, with a little help from the Americans. 
Tony Benn looked likely to become deputy leader of the Labour Party which at the time was strongly challenging the government of Margaret Thatcher in the opinion polls. Persistent rumours circulated over the years about attempts by members of the British security services, and other wings of the British Establish…

Chemical weapons assessment contradicting official Syria narrative is authentic

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has begun responding to queries by the press about a leaked document which contradicts official OPCW findings on an alleged chemical weapons attack last year in Douma, Syria. The prepared statement they’ve been using in response to these queries confirms the authenticity of the document.
To recap, a few days ago the Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media (WGSPM) published a document signed by a man named Ian Henderson, whose name is seen listed in expert leadership positions on OPCW documents from as far back as 1998 and as recently as 2018. It’s unknown who leaked the document and what other media organizations they may have tried to send it to.
The report picks apart the extremely shaky physics and narratives of the official OPCW analysis on the gas cylinders allegedly dropped from Syrian government aircraft in the Douma attack, and concludes that “The dimensions, characteristics and appearance of the cylinders, a…

How GMO seeds and Monsanto/Bayer’s “RoundUp” are driving US policy in Venezuela

With Juan Guaidó’s parallel government attempting to take power with the backing of the U.S., it is telling that the top political donors of those in the U.S. most fervently pushing regime change in Venezuela have close ties to Monsanto and major financial stakes in Bayer.

Part 3 - The AEI axis
Some of the key figures and loudest voices supporting the efforts of the Trump administration to overthrow the Venezuelan government in the United States are well-connected to one particular think-tank, the American Enterprise Institute (AEI). For instance, John Bolton — now Trump’s national security advisor and a major player in the administration’s aggressive Venezuela policy — was a senior fellow at AEI until he became Trump’s top national security official. As national security adviser, Bolton advises the president on foreign policy and issues of national security while also advising both the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense. As of late, he has been pushing for …
