A CIA document exposed by WikiLeaks could become the blueprint for Kamala Harris to start a war with Iran

 
In a recent article in his blog, Glenn Greenwald revealed some astonishing details from a 2010 WikiLeaks exposé related with some CIA PsyOps that could make people in the West approve the US invasion in Afghanistan and the presence of the US forces in the region.
 
As Greenwald describes: 

... it was one WikiLeaks document that particularly caught my attention at first: a classified 2010 CIA “Red Cell Memorandum,” named after the highly secretive unit created by Bush/Cheney CIA Director George Tenet in the wake of the 9/11 attack. 

What made this document so fascinating, so revealing, is the CIA’s discussion of how to manipulate public opinion to ensure it remains at least tolerant if not supportive of Endless War and, specifically, the vital role President Obama played for the CIA in packaging and selling U.S. wars around the world. In this classified analysis, one learns a great deal about how the “military industrial complex,” also known as the “Blob” or “Deep State,” reasons; how the Agency exploits humanitarian impulses to ensure continuation of its wars; and what the real function is of the U.S. President when it comes to foreign policy.

What prompted the memo was the CIA’s growing fears that the population of Western Europe was rapidly turning against the War on Terror generally and the war in Afghanistan specifically — as evidenced by the fall of the Dutch Government driven in large part by the electorate’s anger over involvement in Afghanistan. The CIA was desperate to figure out how to stem the tide of anti-war sentiment growing throughout that region, particularly to shield France and Germany from it, by manipulating public opinion.

The Agency concluded: its best and only asset for doing that was President Obama and his popularity in Western European cities.

[...]

Yet the CIA, as it so often does, knew the hidden truth: that Obama’s most important value was in prettifying, marketing and prolonging wars, not ending them. They saw him for what U.S. Presidents really are: instruments to create a brand and image about the U.S. role in the world that can be effectively peddled to both the domestic population in the U.S. and then on the global stage, and specifically to pretend that endless barbaric U.S. wars are really humanitarian projects benevolently designed to help people — the pretext used to justify every war by every country in history.

 
This is probably the best evidence for the fact that Obama was just a new trick set up by the liberal elites and the US deep state in order to keep business as usual.
 
Trump came as a result of eight years of nothing-has-changed totally disappointing Obama term. Yet, as we already described, despite the fact that Trump brought some serious trouble to the liberal capitalists, ironically, he came right on time to rescue them. He helped them escape from the dead end, after eight years of an utterly disappointing Obama administration. Suddenly, the Obama fraud was almost forgotten and all the progressives had to align behind the liberal fraudsters in order to defeat the "creepy orange clown". 
 
But the "creepy orange clown" did even more than just helping the liberal elites restore power through their DNC proxies. He also paved the way for them and the US deep state towards another imperialist war. First, by killing the Iran nuclear deal for literally no reason. Then, by ordering the assassination of the top Iranian military official, Qasem Soleimani. An utterly preposterous and unprecedented action. 

Actually, it looks like a well-designed plan. Now, the liberal establishment is ready to take the game to a whole new level through identity politics on steroids. That is, by using a diverse cabinet in which women of all colors will become the frontline firepower for a new round of public manipulation. Kamala Harris will play the central role as the new VP.

There is a particular piece in CIA's Red Cell Memorandum, which looks like a strategy designed to fit perfectly for women in charge. As we read:

                              Afghan women could serve as ideal messengers in humanizing the ISAF [International Security Assistance Force] role in combating the Taliban because of women’s ability to speak personally and credibly about their experiences under the Taliban, their aspirations for the future, and their fears of a Taliban victory. Outreach initiatives that create media opportunities for Afghan women to share their stories with French, German, and other European women could help to overcome pervasive skepticism among women in Western Europe toward the ISAF mission.   
 
We can already imagine the "script". Kamala Harris would be the ideal puppet to describe how women suffer under the Iranian regime. The picture of a woman of color in power, speaking about the suffering of other women under an authoritarian regime, will have a great impact on Western audiences. And it will make other women in Western countries accept more easily a US invasion against Iran.

Of course, the corporate media will exaggeratedly amplify the message through another round of massive anti-Iranian propaganda, to make Harris' dirty mission easier. At the same time, they will bury again the much worse reality that millions of women experience under barbaric regimes (like the Saudi regime), simply because these regimes are allies of the US and other Western neocolonial powers.

It would be worth to mention that the first signs show that Biden is ready to bring back the most sinister figures of the Obama warhawk "collection". Also, it appears that Harris has excellent ties with Netanyahu's Apartheid regime and the Israeli lobby. It's more than certain that the latest assassination of the Iranian top nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, was aiming to bring the US one step closer to war by provoking the Iranians.


So, here is a scenario towards that direction in short:

Step 1: Biden sets up the warhawks team
Step 2: Biden steps down due to dementia or other health problems
Step 3: Harris takes over to make the war with Iran more "acceptable"

As we already mentioned, the establishment players who pull the strings know very well Biden's profound weaknesses. They want to make sure that he will be replaced by their best puppet in case he will become unable to fulfill duties. It seems that the puppet is called Kamala Harris. And in fact, it seems that the establishment players are eager to replace Biden with their top female Obama, in the end.

But even if this scenario remain on paper, Harris will be heavily promoted by the media, in order to upgrade her role on critical presidential decisions and make Biden's endless wars more acceptable.

Proof Twitter censored anyone CIA & FBI told them to!

The Jimmy Dore Show   When Viktor Shokin, a former Prosecutor General of Ukraine and notable target of onetime Vice President Joe Biden, wrote a book about his experiences in office, there were powerful individuals within the U.S. Government who didn’t want people reading this book, or even becoming aware it existed. And that’s why government agents insisted Twitter censor accounts promoting Shokin’s book, along with countless others in the tsunami of demands for censorship from government agencies that were flooding into the social media company prior to the 2020 election. Guest host Aaron Maté and journalist Matt Taibbi discuss the very dangerous precedent established by this unseemly private-public censorial partnership.

January 21, 2010: The day corporate dictatorship destroyed the last remnants of US Democracy

globinfo freexchange     As we described many times in this blog, corporate power grew rapidly since the early 70s with the rise of neoliberalism and its subsequent establishment as the dominant culture, especially in the West.  In the motherland of neoliberalism, the United States, corporations essentially legalized corruption in politics during the 70s in order to capture the entire political system and put it under their complete control. As David Harvey describes in his book A Brief History of Neoliberalism :                          The supposedly ‘progressive’ campaign finance laws of 1971 in effect legalized the financial corruption of politics. A crucial set of Supreme Court decisions began in 1976 when it was first established that the right of a corporation to make unlimited money contributions to political parties and political action committees was protected under the First Amendment guaranteeing the rights of individuals (in this instance corporations) to freedom of speec

Julian Assange and the rapid decline of liberal Democracy

by system failure We are now in 2023, and after 1362 days, Julian Assange is still in prison. If you seek something to measure the decline of liberal Democracy in our days, the Julian Assange case will help you a lot. And it's most amazing that in the era of information overflow (with plenty of means available to transfer it almost instantly in every corner of the planet), there are still many people who are unaware of the Assange case.   The origins of this deterioration go back in 1968 when the Left made a disastrous compromise with the powers of the establishment. Since the early 70s and after Nixon's shock , the cultural domination of neoliberalism paved the way for the restriction of certain types of liberties in Western societies.  The 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001 became the perfect opportunity for the establishment to abolish instantly a significant portion of the civil liberties that came out of the 1968 compromise. The liberal Democracy in the West suffered a heavy

China pushes de-dollarization with gold reserves, Argentina yuan currency swap deal

Advancing global de-dollarization, China’s central bank is boosting its gold reserves while signing currency swap deals in yuan with countries like Argentina, encouraging the use of renminbi instead of US dollars.   by Ben Norton  Part 4 - China uses currency swap lines to help debt-burdened countries, while advancing de-dollarization China began conducted currency swaps with Argentina back in 2009, under left-wing President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. Deals have been repeatedly renewed since then. But the South American nation is not the only country that has worked out a system like this with the East Asian giant. In December, the Wall Street Journal reported that Beijing’s central bank is using an “ unusual channel ”: “ currency-swap lines to support governments that borrowed heavily from Chinese banks ”.
