The UK Is Turning Into A Police State

UK Government Using COVID as Cover To Create Police State


By Dark Politricks

The UK is turning into a Police State before our eyes, that is, if you are watching and listening to the right news and not consumed by talk about COVID.

It's as if the Tory government is letting the dilly dallying over COVID rules lockdowns and passports consume everyone's thoughts, all whilst they implement some of the most draconian laws we have ever seen.

The COVID law that allows the Police to enter your home without a warrant if they suspect someone with the virus is inside plus preventing people sue the NHS for negligence, and force people to take medicine on ONE doctors advice only, is supposed to run out next year. 

  • Forced detention and isolation can be of anyone, including children, and for any amount of time.
  • Authorities can FORCEABLY take biological samples from your body.
  • There’s no clear access to legal rights from as-yet unidentified isolation facilities.
  • Powers last up to 2.5 years...why so long?
  • Lockdown powers could prevent protests against measures.
  • State surveillance safeguards weakened.
  • Protections from forced detainment and treatment under Mental Health Act lowered.
  • Cremations can be enforced against personal and religious wishes.
  • Changes to the court system. Registration of deaths.
  • No inquests into suspicious deaths! No requirement for any medical certification for burials or cremations!
  • It also indemnifies the health service should they fail for what ever reason to provide care.
  • The most frightening part is only one medical 'officer' is required to sign off on a "COMPULSORY TREATMENT ORDER" which means... in the real world you can be forced to accept medication or held down and injected with whatever is seen fit which is the biggest and worst threat to your own freedoms. Schedule 8 Pt1.
  • Local Authorities will now be exempted from compliance with their duties under The Care Act 2014. Schedule 11.
  • So if someone dies in police custody or any type of custody they can simply dispose of the body without any paperwork medical exam or certification or inquest.
Sounds like a Police State already doesn't it, and I wonder how many people will be noticing to see if this law is removed like the Tories said it would 2 years after it went onto the law books. However as the new Police Bill prevents people protesting if they are too noisy then maybe we won't even have a chance to protest against the extension of the UK police state.

How many of you read about all the protests going on over Europe at the moment against their restriction of movement? 

It is quite clear a lot of people do not like lockdowns and the threat of fines or jail for breaking them. However how many people have read about these massive protests in London or seen anything about them on the news in the UK. I haven't and no-one I ask has as well. There are a few articles if you search Google but they all come at the protests from a "Speaking to a conspiracy theorist at a protest" angle. So the mainstream media are obviously taking these protests seriously.

Soon however these protests will be crushed by the Police due to the new Police Bill that will prevent protests that are too noisy. 

I think this protest at Trafalgar Square might come under the noisy part. 

If you read this link from the governments site it will tell you all about the new measures, including stop and search, stopping protests, and broadening the range of circumstances in which police may impose conditions on a protest going ahead and more > https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/police-crime-sentencing-and-courts-bill-2021-factsheets/police-crime-sentencing-and-courts-bill-2021-protest-powers-factsheet.

Restrictions on protests in the controversial new policing bill breach human rights laws and will increase the risk of peaceful demonstrators in England and Wales being criminalised, MPs and peers have warned.

They say the police, crime, sentencing and courts (PCSC) bill, which has provoked widespread protests, contains provisions that are unnecessary and disproportionate and confer unacceptably wide and vague powers to curb demonstrations on the home secretary and police.

They are keeping the uprising against the new UK Police State as quiet as possible. The original video was taken down at YouTube so I found a video on BitChute about the London Protests against Lockdowns, and anti-tyranny Police State measures being brought forward in the UK that would ban such protests like these for being too noisy  > https://www.bitchute.com/video/GRskh0SZ3ABv/


However you can watch this video from The Duran about the Tories new Official Secrets Act. It is supposed to be to prosecute spies, but it is being modelled on the US version, but worse, and it is aimed at not just papers but anyone, including maybe me, for passing on information from whistle-blowers about illegal acts that the UK may have committed.

This can range from things I have already reported on over the years including something mentioned in the video below such as:
So from what is spoken about in this video about the new law, will it just affect papers and if so why are they not writing about the dangers of it?

Or is it aimed more at bloggers and people like Julian Assange so that the UK can lock people up who question or repeat whistle-blowers information about UK secrets, without a public interest defence.

From the Duran, Boris Johnson launches a new Secrets Act to imprison Journalists who dare question the government.
Official Secrets Act: Boris Johnson 'Doesn't Want' Journos Prosecuted for 'Doing Their Public Duty'


It looks like to me, that the UK is turning into a real police state and this is just the thin edge of the wedge, that even Church leaders have come out to speak against in the UK.

I guess if you are not reading #Altnews you will not even know about any of this, but if you are you should be very worried. 

Even posting on Facebook or Twitter might land you in jail depending on the wording of the bill.

Anything that exposes UK Foreign Policy crimes, intelligence agencies doing wrong doings, or war crimes could land you in jail for the rest of your life.

Now does that sound like a free speech democracy?

Just don't expect anyone to come and protest for your innocence, the police will ban that for being too noisy straight away.

Thin edge of the wedge indeed....

Havana Syndrome - Excuse For CIA to Finally Invade Cuba - Or A Real Weapon?

Is the CIA Making Up Reason To Invade Cuba?


By Dark Politricks

Hopefully if you are regular visitor you visit my Twitter #HashTag newspaper, either from a link on Twitter, or just  by visiting the site. If you have JavaScript on it's just above my #Altnews Search Engine, the search engine that will ONLY bring you news from the sources the establishment does NOT want you read, including this blog of mine somehow!

If you want a direct link to it to open it all up in a new browser window its > https://paper.li/darkpolitricks.

Now today there was an article from Reuters called "CIA probe of 'Havana syndrome' to be led by Bin Laden search veteran -source". Now I know the CIA has wanted to invade Cuba for over half a century when all the rich were kicked out of the country and their casinos and plantation's re-appropriated to the people under Fidel Castro in his Communist revolution.

Please don't think that I am going to do a spiel about how good Communism is, but when it comes to Cuba, they are having a hard time due to US Foreign policy. Not only does the US have multiple trade embargoes on the island, including complicated blockades that prevents certain goods like medical equipment, much needed during the COVID outbreak from getting to them, but anything with more than 10% US parts inside it has to go through US law.

You can read about the nuances of the laws that let the US decide what can and cannot get to Cuba here on this, "Fact Checker" site. However a quote from that site explains that the blockades and other laws are there because of this reason:

It’s really to favour U.S. farmers and agricultural interests. Cuba was a very important market for U.S. farmers,” ... “So even though the sanctions generally prohibit trade, there are some exceptions.

The U.S. embargo does have an impact on what goods Cuba receives from other countries. For example, if any trading good contains 10% of U.S. created content, it must go through U.S. law in order to be exported into Cuba. 

“When you think of complicated things like airplanes or oil drilling platforms or scientific or medical equipment, sometimes those things are caught up in that 10%,” .. “And so U.S. law does not allow that to be exported to Cuba even though 90% or 89% was produced in France or Canada, or something like that.”

Maxwell further pointed out that foreign companies that are owned or patrolled by the U.S. might be reluctant to engage in business with Cuba. The Helms-Burton Act allows U.S. nationals to sue entities that do business involving property that was confiscated by the Cuban government. The rule didn’t go into effect until 2019, when the Trump administration gave it the green light."

Please forgive the Capitalist slant on that news outlet I linked to, it is coming from NBC news, a MIC/Deep State owned news company in the most wealthy country on the planet.

So whatever protests in Florida from Cuban exiles, currently being filmed and made out by US news that they are coming from Cuba plus any real Cuban people protesting, should make US citizens think. That despite all the politics, embargoes, and attacks on this tiny country, they still have some of the finest medical treatments for free in the world - The Cubans even sent doctors overseas for free to help 40 countries in need of help during the COVID pandemic

No matter how poor people in Cuba are, at least they get free Health Care from medical staff prepared to go round the world and help others in need at the same time. They do not act like the richest country on earth that would rather go to war killing people, than let their own citizens have free health care during a pandemic

I could never imagine the US doing what the Cuban's did for free, but then that's what Communism install's in people, a sense of working for the good of man and society, not purely for the green paper money payday. 

Of course there are inherent problems with Communism, just read Orwell's Animal Farm. Communism only works in a small community where everyone can voice their decisions, the only thing I can think of that nears true communism apart from small hippy camps are maybe the Kibbutz in Israel where they were small enough not to have to separate into a "ruling class" that made the decisions, and the workers that followed them. 

That is why no REAL communist society has every existed on this earth, the USSR had two many people, and just like China, North Korea and Cuba they have a ruling class and then the workers. It is a two class system, one that the USA is becoming more and more alike, with the rich 1% Oligarchy at the top enriching themselves by any means and then the rest of the population who have to struggle and survive every day, doing whatever they can to get by, as there is no real social safety net.

Now of course you can argue that point for ever, but when you compare Cuba to the USA, and the amount of embargoes they have had to suffer over the years. You have to be amazed at what balls they have, to still be driving around their island in pristine condition cars from the 60's and be such a welcoming friendly people, despite all the propaganda the US puts out about them

So despite the "nuances" the "fact checker" site stating that there is "No total embargo on Cuba", in reality they still are being deprived of important items, goods that would have probably helped stop any unrest before it began

Can you imagine if the people of the Island could not just rely on tourism, and be able to import and export their own goods, with no interference from the USA?

What the country would look like today if it hadn't have lived the whole of this century and half of the last within a siege mentality. Such a state of mind only rallies the people together against their enemy, rather than conspire to other throw their leaders, which the USA always seems to be hoping for.

I wonder if they hadn't have had to stick together as a society in the face of US imperialism over the years, whether naturally they would they have loosened their tight Soviet like, secret police controls, and opened up to the world naturally or even implemented Capitalism like China has. A country that is basically Capitalist with bribery, run by one Communist party. They have spies all over the world working for US politicians, businesses, universities and stealing information for their 1st allegiance - the party, so that China can use it to increase their GDP or advance Defence technologies.

It is the same with Iran, when all the Iranians hear on their TV is how the US/UK is about to attack them, and wants to invade them for their oil, is it no wonder that the people support the government rather than try to other throw it. 

They only have to look at how the US has just invaded Syria to protect their CIA/Saudi funded jihadists from being wiped out by the Russians, as well as steal their oil and food supply to make them starve, to see a real example of US foreign policy. I thought al-Qaeda/ISIS and all their offshoots that have been backed by the AXIS of evil were our enemies in the war on terror, shouldn't we want them eliminated by the Russians?

So instead of trying to overthrow the revolution, the Cuban's are huddling together because they know that just a few miles across the water lies the worlds biggest bully who has it's sights firmly placed on them. I remember learning at college what a brilliant film industry they have over there and how good their medical care is, with the obvious free treatment at hospitals for all citizens - like most modern countries apart from the USA

As long as you are not reading an anti Cuban exile's blog on everything that is bad in this Communist country, then you may learn some truth about the country, even US TV shows and Films, that show visitors to Cuba like, "The House of Lies", and films like "Fast and Furious - The Fate Of The Furious", show the country in a very positive light.

However the US elite, has always hated Cuba, ever since all the rich people had their land taken off them after the revolution, and having a Russian proxy so close to their land. The Bay of Pig's failed invasion, never helped put the US in a good light, nor did all the assassination attempts on Fidel Castro's life which have been freely admitted. 

However the anti Cuban feeling from people who have risked their lives to escape the island on floating shacks to get to America is very strong. The USA only seems to listen to the pro-capitalist information from exiles, rather than interview real Cuban's living in the country, so it is a very one sided propaganda situation that US citizens get to hear.

Would you take the word of an ex American who got refugee status in China when he tells you how horrible life in the Capitalist USA is,. How the 1% earn all the money, and jobs are being taken away from the working class, forced to work gig jobs, as an Amazon or Uber driver, with no employment status or security, and therefore health care or pension plan. Plus no country wide social safety net, corruption at the top of politics, with a constant war economy, attacking any country that refuses to buy it's oil in petrodollars?




Well actually I could believe those parts, but you get what I mean. Someone who has escaped from one country to live in another, is always going to paint their ex home as the worse of the two. They want asylum so of course they are going to love their new home and only repeat the bad things about their old one when asked by the media.

So sure in very simple terms, the Cuban regime is Communist in name, just like the one in China. However China is more of a threat to the USA, it's a Commie country that the American's are all too happy to do business with. All whilst the Chinese regime persecute the Muslim Uighur population in Xinjiang

A population where supposedly 1 million are being locked up in "re-education" or "death camps", depending on your point of view. Survivors have told how women are subjected to "systematic rape, sterilization and forced abortions". However the US seems to have no problem with this behaviour whilst trading with the Chinese, but they do when it comes to tiny Cuba,

Whilst the Cuban regime might be tough on dissidents and opponents of the revolution, they are certainly not doing anything as bad as the rulers of China are. They are probably not even keeping their own prisoners in the same sorry state that America is doing to their prisoners that are still being held in Gitmo, a part of Cuba they still control. It hypocrisy at it's highest.

So sanctions by the US against North Korea, Russia, Venezuela, Iran and Cuba and any other county the US feels it has  the power to bully, only ever hurt the average citizen, whilst never affecting those at the top, who can always get what they need or want whatever blockades are being placed on their country. 

In my lifetime, I cannot remember one time where blockades and sanctions have ever worked in the way the USA always hopes they will. When Madeleine Albright said in the 90's just before the Gulf War, that killing half a million Iraqi children through their tough sanctions on the country was worth it, I like many others was shocked.

Was she just being the usual sick war mongering, neo-con or did those in power really believe that killing so many children through sanctions would do anything in the slightest to make the Iraqi people rise up and overthrow Saddam Hussein themselves, because it didn't. In fact after the war, when the Southern Shia's did try and attempt to other throw Hussein, the US/UK allies all abandoned them and let them be slaughtered

Is it any wonder people in the Middle East do not trust our word?

Quote from the Gateway Pundit about the US sanctions on Iraq before the Gulf War:
Lesley Stahl on U.S. sanctions against Iraq: "We have heard that a half a million children have died. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?"

Secretary of State Madeleine Albright: "I think this is a very hard choice, but the price–we think the price is worth it."

You can watch the video here > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omnskeu-puE - sick or, what?

So when I hear that the CIA is now talking about US agents being affected by directed energy weapon beams, I have to wonder if this is just a ploy to get American's stoked up for another, Bay of Pigs type invasion.

It's either that or the Cuban's have had enough of being bullied by the the most powerful country on Earth, who trains assassins that kill President's of little poor countries like Haiti, and therefore think that they can do no wrong, even when setting up coups in South America, Europe and Asia

I will let you decide what to make of the story, whether it just something planted by Operation Mockingbird agents, that now run the media without shame, or whether it could be true.




From Reuters...

CIA probe of 'Havana syndrome' to be led by Bin Laden search veteran -source

www.reuters.com

WASHINGTON, July 21 (Reuters) - A CIA official who was involved in the search for Osama bin Laden has been chosen to head an agency task force investigating cases of an ailment known as "Havana Syndrome" among U.S. spies and diplomats, a government source said on Wednesday.

CIA director William Burns named a career undercover spy, who was part of the search for the al Qaeda leader that ended with him being killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan in 2011, the source said. The Wall Street Journal first reported the appointment.

Dozens of U.S. diplomats and other officials, including CIA officers, have been afflicted by "Havana Syndrome," so named because it first was reported by officials assigned to the U.S. embassy in Cuba.

The Journal said that a panel organized by the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine reported last December that some type of "directed energy" beams were strongly suspected as causing the ailment, which includes dizziness, headaches and nausea.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in June that a government-wide review was underway into who or what caused suspected radio frequency attacks "directed" at diplomats.

Austria has been working with U.S. authorities to investigate a spate of suspected cases among U.S. diplomats in Vienna, the Austrian Foreign Ministry said on Saturday.

Since U.S. President Joe Biden took office in January, roughly two dozen intelligence officers, diplomats and other officials in Vienna have reported symptoms similar to those of Havana syndrome, making it the second-biggest hotspot after Havana, the New Yorker magazine reported on Friday.

The National Security Agency (NSA) said in a 2014 memo to one intelligence officer who said he had suffered possible symptoms that an unnamed "hostile country" to which the official travelled in the late 1990s had a "high powered microwave system weapon that may have the ability to weaken, intimidate or kill an enemy over time and without leaving evidence."

The memo, which was read by Reuters, said intelligence indicated that such a weapon was "designed to bathe a target's living quarters in microwaves, causing numerous physical effects, including a damaged nervous system."

Now just think, if Cuba has the power, money and equipment to create and install, then actually use a directed energy weapon beam at American "Diplomats" (the usual cover name for spies in any country), then can you imagine what sort of directed energy beam weaponry the US has at it's own disposal? 

I don't know, but if the CIA are blaming Cuba of having a directed energy beam weapon at their disposal I would love to know what kind of energy beam weapons the USA uses. I do recall that there was supposedly a similar weapon used in the 91 Gulf War against the Iraqi's, at the time the 4th largest army on earth.

Apparently the American's had some sort of weapon that would implant thoughts into the enemy soldiers heads to the effect that they would think they were hearing the words of Allah or Mohammed telling them to surrender

How true this long held rumour is, I don't know, but I do remember that during that time, thousands upon thousands of Iraqi soldiers just got up out of their trenches and surrendered without a single shot being fired. What caused this to happen I don't know but if you go down the rabbit hole you can find articles deep in Googles engine, mostly de-ranked like many of my sites page's have been that talk about such as "Word of God" weapon.

We know that sound weapons exist, even shop keepers have little versions of them to keep youngsters from hanging outside their shops by buzzing a frequency that only young people can hear. So that adults can continue to enter the shop in peace and not hear anything whilst the kids are driven away by the horrible sound. 

Try it, download a dog whistle app onto your phone then play with the frequency in a room of people and see who can hear it and who can't. 

Obviously this is very basic, but we mere mortals are only given the scraps of devices built with our taxes, whilst the military get to play with some very highly advanced weaponry indeed. 

I just hope this excuse of an energy beam being directed at American's in Cuba, is not picked up by the MSM and be used to push for an invasion, just like the non existent WMD's in Iraq and the Fake Douma chemical attack in Syria, They were all ploys to bring Axis of War troops into combat and to get the public's sympathy for an invasion, and I can see this being used as one too.

As they say "The first casualty of war is truth",....


What do you think, would the small country of Cuba be stupid enough to bring about an invasion from the USA by attacking US personnel, or is it a fabricated or miss-understood story that is getting air time?

We have the power to take ET home.....

Everything You Can Imagine We Already Know How To Do....

By Dark Politricks

Lockheed Skunk Works director says we can take ET home

As  recently admitted by the DOD and the Pentagon that UFO's or UAP's are a reality and are regularly spotted by Naval and Air Force crossing our skies and waters, it is fitting to hear these words from one of the developers of top secret planes and probably other craft for the US Government.

Ben Rich the head of Lockheed Skunkworks who developed the Stealth Fighter plus many other known and unknown top planes for the US Military was quoted shortly before his death that:

We already have the means to travel among the stars but these technologies are locked up in Black Projects…and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity. Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do.”

We now have the technology to take ET home. No, it won’t take someone’s lifetime to do it. There is an error in the equations. We know what it is. We now have the capability to travel to the stars.” – Ben Rich shortly before his passing.

He was also asked how UFO propulsion functioned and his reply was remarkable. “Let me ask you. How does ESP work?” 

The man asking the question of Mr. Rich said – “All points in time and space are connected?” Ben Rich then replied, “That’s how it works!” 

There has been more than one confirmation of Ben Rich’s words on the subject of UFOs or UAP's as the Pentagon and DOD are now calling them after the release of a 700 page report on them to Congress and a 3 page heavily redacted report to the public. 

Here is one:

William Hamilton wrote, “Rich Andrews was a close personal friend of Lockheed’s “Skunk Works” CEO Ben Rich, the hand-picked successor of Skunk Works founder Kelly Johnson and the man famous for the F-117 Nighthawk “Stealth” fighter, its half-pint prototype the HAVE BLUE, and the top secret F-19 Stealth Interceptor. Before Rich died of cancer, Andrews took my questions to him. Rich confirmed:

There are two types of UFOs — the ones we build, and ones THEY build. We learned from both crash retrievals and actual “Hand-me-downs.” The Government knew, and until 1969 took an active hand in the administration of that information. After a 1969 Nixon “Purge”, administration was handled by an international board of directors in the private sector.

Richard Dolan, author of the UFO's and the National Security State, and an investigator of UAP's/UFO's for decades released a video regarding the classified part of the report that we were not allowed to see.

However even with these comments from probably one of the builders of UAP's for the US Government and the release of a 700 page report on them to Congress how many people actually have heard this news?

Our mainstream news is failing and it is no wonder people turn to alternative news, which is slowly getting cleansed off the web and public spheres of talk on the Internet e.g Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, with even the head spokes person for the Biden administration today saying that if someone is banned from one online site they should be banned from all of them.


No wonder people are now creating alternatives to Twitter and YouTube to prevent getting "cleaned" off the web forever.

The 13 Families That Apparently Control The World

The Rothschilds and Rockefellers, plus the other families, the mainstream media wants us to believe control the world


By Dark Politricks

This is from an article I saw in my Twitter newspaper earlier today. It always changes daily and you should check the site out to see what new articles are there each day. It appears at the top of the site.

It comes from a mainstream outlet, www.indiatimes.com and I have no idea if they are putting this information out there to mock people who DO believe the world is controlled by a tiny % of people who all attend Bilderberg and Bohemian Grove meetings with no press, are billionaires, and pull the strings of politicians

Or whether they are putting this out there, with a "Ha ha, conspiracy theorists believe...", but in such a way as to get the information out without being banned or prevented from printing. Either way everyone should read it as if you know history, you will know that a lot of what is mentioned is in fact true.

I am reproducing the article to get it out to more people, but you can find the original article here:  www.indiatimes.com. Make of it what you will. If you have been doing your homework the names will be very familiar and you will know much of their historical deeds and desires to control the population.


By Rishabh Banerji

This is about the fascinating conspiracy theory that claims these most powerful families in the world own 99% of the wealth, leaving 1% for the rest of the world to fight over. 

These are families that have a hold in almost every sphere of life, be it politics, business or entertainment. The 13 bloodlines are said to have connections to wealth and power that are simply unimaginable. And these families span from Europe to China. 

The leading researcher behind the Illuminati families is a man named, Fritz Springmeier, an author and educator, and he has presented some of the most compelling details about the Illuminati bloodline. 

Before you read the following article about Illuminati families, it is imperative that you realise that all these are popular points of view and remain just a conspiracy theory, unless proven otherwise. But goddamn, is it a great conspiracy theory!  

"I care not what puppet is placed on the throne of England to rule the Empire. The man who controls Britain's money supply controls the  British Empire and I control the British money supply." - Nathan Mayer Rothschild




Some say, in an attempt to restore "balance" in the world, a New World Order was formed. Formed by America and Europe's most elite (both in terms of wealth and power) with historical roots that date back centuries. This power-house formed by 13 families is known to be controlling practically everything around the globe

From political parties around the world, courthouses, educational institutions, natural resources, foreign policies, food, national economies, media houses, even terrorist organisations. They are the ones who decide where and when the next terror attack is going to happen, they decide when the markets will fall, they decide when a new government needs to take over, they decide what happens at the UN, they decide practically everything.
"The US and UK governments' relentless backing for the global spread of genetically modified seeds was in fact the implementation of a decades long policy of the Rockefeller Foundation since the 1930's, when it funded Nazi eugenics research -- i.e. mass-scale population reduction, and control of darker-skinned races by an Anglo-Saxon white elite. As some of these circles saw it, war as a means of population reduction was costly and not that efficient." - F. William Engdahl in his book "Seeds of Destuction"




What we didn't know


Modern day democracy, like the way we know it, is not more than 250 years old. The world, as we know it, has always been ruled by the ones with absolute power, those who knew how to control wealth and resources. By those who knew how to control their people, by hook or by crook. The New World Order aims to work on a similar philosophy of absolute power and control, but on a global scale. The plan is to secretly have a single body governing the planet with the elite sitting right on top of the food chain, leaving the rest of the world to fight it out for that 1% of the global economy. 

Scarier is the fact that they apparently also want to keep control of the global population. They want the global population to be just under a billion, leaving the Earth's resources for their own exclusive use. And to keep the population in check, they are willing to go to any extent, even plan scientifically engineered global population control methods like viruses, vaccines and genetically modified food. It is also said that these families even hold the cure for terminal diseases like cancer and AIDS, but don't want to release it to the public because then there'll be a cure. And a cure is not good for the pharma business.



"The master planners devised the strategy of a merger - a Great Merger - among nations. But before such a merger can be consummated, and the United States becomes just another province in a New World Order, there must at least be the semblance of parity among the senior partners in the deal. How does one make the nations of the world more nearly equal? The Insiders determined that a two-prong approach was needed; use American money and know-how to build up your competitors, while at the same time use every devious strategy you can devise to weaken and impoverish this country. The goal is not to bankrupt the United States. Rather, it is to reduce our productive might, and therefore our standard of living, to the meager subsistence level of the socialized nations of the world. The plan is not to bring the standard of living in less developed countries up to our level, but to bring ours down to meet theirs coming up... It is your standard of living which must be sacrificed on the altar of the New World Order." - Gary Allen in his book "The Rockefeller File"

13 Families that Secretly Control the World


1. The Astor Bloodline

2. The Bundy Bloodline

3. The Collins Bloodline

4. The DuPont Bloodline



5. The Freeman Bloodline

6. The Kennedy Bloodline

7. The Li Bloodline

8. The Onassis Bloodline

9. The Rockefeller Bloodline



10. The Russell Bloodline

11. The Van Duyn Bloodline

12. The Merovingian Bloodline

13. The Rothschild Bloodline



True or not, the whole concept is a bit unsettling. Just imagine being played around like puppets. 

What do you feel about the concept of having one secret cabal of super rich families that control governments, big business, big pharma, silicon valley, the media and the MIC?

Why Julian Assange Should Be Pardoned

Ryan Grim Breaks Down Why Julian Assange Should Not Be Prosecuted


By Dark Politricks

Julian Assange just spent his 50th birthday in Belmarsh prison. The prison in the UK that high security prisoners are stored and abused, nicknamed "The Meat Grinder". He should not be there, and although I disagree with a lot of what Ryan Grim has to say, this piece he did on The Hill really breaks down what he is accused of, and why he should not be prosecuted.

The USA under Joe Biden is carrying on the savage torture of this journalist, by carrying on to appeal the Judges ruling that he should not be extradited to the US due to their inhuman conditions for prisoners. The Judge even mentioning the case of sex offender Jeffery Epstein, and the likelihood Assange would die in a US Super Max prison. The US has come back to say that if convicted in their show trial, he would not go to a Super Max prison to spend the next 300 years or whatever stupid sentence they are going to try for.

However once extradited there is nothing stopping them from breaking any promises they had made to the UK court and putting him in solitary, in a tiny box cell, with little human contact. The no of times the US has lied in extradition cases is huge, they will and do say anything to get their prisoner back to their country, where they can then do what they like with him.

It seems that despite the FBI's main witness coming out and telling the truth about the lies he told to get off charges himself related to child molesting and fraud by lying about Assange in an Icelandic Newspaper, that I printed in my last article, the US is still carrying on their charade of a prosecution. They are labelling him a hacker when the only evidence comes from Mr Thordason, who has admitted he lied to the FBI about nearly all the involvement he had with Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.

Therefore if you remove his testimony, Julian has not been proven to have hacked anything. All the evidence comes from the lying words of a 28 FBI informant from Iceland trying to get out of being taken to court for his own crimes. Take away this evidence and the FBI and DOJ basically have no evidence to convict Assange.


Read more about Mr Thordarson and Julian Assange and his interview, in which he admitted he was lying to the FBI. This is something that should have helped get the US DOJ's case against Assange, thrown out of court, but somehow it persists. 

This all goes to prove that the handling of Assange is more about punishing him for revealing US secrets, which journalists have been doing for time immemorial, and making him suffer rather than the actual law. Julian Assange has being denied bail, and the US carrying on trying to lie about him being a hacker rather than a journalist who did what the Guardian and New York Times also did, print materials he was given, not material he hacked and stole illegally.

The indictment states that together Mr Thordarson and Julian Assange tried to crack a password together to get into an Icelandic bank. This bank was assumed to contain information about defaulted loans provided by the Icelandic Landsbank during the 2008 banking crisis. In fact Mr Thordason already had access to this information with his own login, whether they shared that login is immaterial and outside the FBI's jurisdiction as it was in Iceland.

Julian Assange like any good journalist wanted information, and when asked what information he should get, Assange actually said "I can't give targets around for legal reasons, but Google around and find bad people". This is evidence that he was trying to keep inside the bounds of the law not break them.

All Assange is, was a publisher of information that was given to him by whistle-blowers. The same information that was printed by multiple papers around the globe. The DOJ have the problem of how to prosecute Assange without stopping free speech and the printing of information by the New York Times obtained illegally but publicly important to reveal if it is about government crimes. This is why they are trying to accuse him of being a hacker. Once you listen to the video you will hear how thin this prosecution against Assange really is.

Many people believe that this grudge against Assange relates to the emails leaked during the 2016 US election from Hillary Clinton. It doesn't, it relates to the war crimes committed by the US army in Iraq, and torture information from GITMO gathered by Chelsea Manning who has already been to jail for her crimes

This information was very embarrassing for the US as it revealed their cruel methods of killing Iraqi's, including Reuters reporters filmed from US helicopters as they joked about killing a number of men and even children that arrived in an "ambulance" to help them.

So listen to this short news piece as Ryan Grim breaks down the DOJ's indictment against Julian Assange



To read more about Mr Thordarson, and his lies, including claiming that he was a top figure at WikiLeaks and all the incriminating things he said about Assange to his FBI handlers, you can read the article in which he comes clean here > The Lying FBI Informant Trying To Imprison Julian Assange.

Julian Assange's family have just finished a tour of the US to try and raise awareness about his trial, the evidence, and the treatment he is suffering in Belmarsh jail at the moment. I doubt many MSM news channels gave them a positive light, considering they are all now Operation Mockingbird outlets, fully formed in the flesh, with real ex intelligence officers as news anchors, or guest presenters, along with all the adverts for the MIC, including Raytheon and Lockheed and Martin, during their breaks. These deep state entities control the MSM in the US now and it is the reason you cannot get real news from their shows.

They no longer need to sneak about ,and offer secret tax free salaries, as the MI5 does here in the UK to BBC reporters, as attested to in John Snows autobiography. 

Instead they are now funding, advertising on, and reporting the news themselves. You are unlikely to find an unpopular view that goes against the establishment line being uttered by any guest, and if it is, they won't be invited back for sure. 

So many popular commentators and journalists like Glenn Greenwald, Max Blumenthal and many others no longer appear on supposed left wing news channels like MSNBC. Instead they have to go to the right wing FOX, and use Tucker Carlson, as I write about in this article, to get their news out. For this they are smeared by left wing purists as being Right Wing.

Why is it that to get to the truth you have to get labelled crazy first, a conspiracy theorist or a nutter, before finally the truth is revealed and then everyone treats it as if it has always been so. On another matter related to news not getting out to the public.

“The government has formally and officially come out and informed Congress that these things are – A, they’re real – and two, that they’re not ours and that they seem to be performing, at least some of them … in remarkable ways," 
Even the head of Lockeheed Martin Skunkworks, designer of the Stealth bomber and many other secret planes for the US, said before his death:
We now have the technology to take ET home. No, it won’t take someone’s lifetime to do it. There is an error in the equations. We know what it is. We now have the capability to travel to the stars.”
and
“We already have the means to travel among the stars but these technologies are locked up in Black Projects…and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity. Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do.” - Ben Rich, Former Director of Lockheed Skunk works shortly before his passing. You can read that quote and more here.
Ex President's are admitting that something strange is going on in the skies, and scientists who have heard the news are having to re-adjust their thinking to a new paradigm due to this new evidence, a fact now admitted by the Government that UFO's or UAP's as the US DOD is calling them, really do exist. Something they and many others in authority and science fields have mocked people for believing in, for years. 

Their whole world of physics should be changing right now, but how many scientists are actually aware of all this new information?

However, for most people the world just seems to carry on spinning, with hardly any news on this matter having being heard by them. They still think UFO's are a conspiracy theory, despite all the new disclosure by the US Government, Navy, Pentagon and DOD. 

UAP's as the US GOV calls them, have been tracked by Naval ships, and videos that were released by the Pentagon to the public, have been online for years now. Even interviews with pilots who have been allowed to be interviewed about their experiences after chasing UAP's, such Commander David Fravor, who chased what has become known as the "Tic Tac", abound on YouTube if you look for them.

So just like Julian Assange and the threat his prosecution poses to all journalists and leakers of classified information, news that "we can take ET home", does not even make the news or get to the public.

Hopefully the video by Ryan Grim clarifies some things up for those not totally clued up to the injustice being inflicted on this centuries most prolific journalist and founder of WikiLeaks

Whether anything will get the UK judge to look into the false claims by the FBI's informant / child molesting fraudster is another matter altogether. Appeal courts do not necessarily look at new evidence, so it is debatable whether they can get this important information to the Judge so they know the FBI's case is based on lies.

If the news that UFO's are real has not hit the heads of most of the population, then what will it take to get this important news about the threat to our free speech, and our right to know what the government does with our tax money, and Julian Assange's torture, out to the people?

Why Mainstream Media Is Failing

The Orwellian World Of Mainstream Media

By Dark Politricks

It truly is an Orwellian world we are living in when people who attack the Democrats from the left are being called Right Wing, and NAZI's by supposed left wing personalities like Sam Seder and Cenk Uygur from the Young Turks, someone who has been in an online war recently with Aaron MateGlenn Greenwald, and Jimmy Dore, about the staged Douma Gas Attacks in Syria.

When real left wing journalists and personalities like Glenn Greenwald have to go to FOX News and the Tucker Carlson show to be heard then you know that we are now living in a world where black is white and the "liberal" establishment is censoring real progressive views, along with any news that attacks the Empire.

Here is a left wing comedian, who attacks the Democrats from the left. If people like Jimmy Dore have to go onto a right wing channel like FOX just to get their message across to millions of people, and actually manages to convince Tucker live on air, that Julian Assange should be pardoned. Then you know that the "left" wing channels like MSNBC no longer contain true left wing news shows.


Here is another left wing journalist, Glenn Greenwald, who is appearing on Tucker Carlson's show, to talk about how the defence budget is being spent 'spying on American citizens'. Tucker has just realised after NSA denials that he was a target of NSA spying due to his show trying to organise an interview with Russian Premier, Vladimir Putin

Although at first people claimed he was crazy to think that the NSA would be spying on an American citizen, despite everything we know they do from Edward Snowden and Thomas Drake, he has actually confirmed that the National Security Agency did indeed monitor his private communications. It was confirmed by the Fox News host from a whistle-blower.
Tucker Carlson was talking to U.S.-based Kremlin intermediaries about setting up an interview with Vladimir Putin shortly before the Fox News host accused the National Security Agency of spying on him,” sources told Axios.
Read more about that story here > NSA confirms Tucker Carlson was being spied on.


Of course these left wing commentators, get labelled as "Right Wing", due to appearing on Tucker Carlson's show. However it seems to be the only place that will actually accept left wing guests anymore. MSNBC won't have them on to discuss the failings of the Joe Biden presidency and the American Empires foreign policy

Therefore where are these people supposed to go to get their message over to a larger audience than those who watch their YouTube channels?

If supposed left wing channels won't have these people on to discuss left wing points of view because they are now all pro-Biden, pro-war, anti-Russia, and anti-free speech, then supposed "American Liberal's" are in trouble if they are being brainwashed by Rachel Maddow and her conspiracies about #Russiagate

Even in a court case recently her lawyer argued successfully that her audience knows she does not deliver "real news", but puts her own "slant" on it, and rants and raves about wild political conspiracy theories that Russia is under everyone's bed, because her watching viewers already "know" she is just being hyperbolic. However do they really know that she is not delivering real news but just her own political views that are slanted by her political beliefs like #Russiagate?

You can read the page from the Judges dismissal of a case where she called out someone for being a Russian spy here.


Please read the central part carefully where it states and I repeat:
"Thus Maddow's show is different than a typical news segment where anchors inform viewers about the daily news. The point of Maddow's show is for her to provide the news but also to offer her opinions as to that news. Therefore the Court finds that the medium of the alleged defamatory statement makes it more likely that a reasonable viewer would not conclude that the contested statement implies an assertion of objective fact."
Therefore people watching Rachel Maddow, who believe her every word, have no basis to do so, in this judges view. She is a story teller NOT a news anchor. No wonder people trying to tell the world some real news have trouble finding a prime time spot to do so.

One of the most important pieces of news since the lies that led us into a failed illegal war in Iraq, has been the debunking of Syrian involvement in a chemical weapons attack, that ensured that they were then bombed by the Axis of War. The USA, UK and France.

The OPCW -  The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, and their cover up of the supposed Syrian gas attack in Douma, which has seen 4 of the inspectors now claiming that the published report was doctored, and in fact, there was no evidence that the Syrian army had dropped chemical weapons in barrels from the air into the suburb of Damascus, an area controlled by anti-Assad, and Western Proxy backed jihadist's for a long time.

A leaked OPCW assessment challenges the claim that the Syrian government carried out a chemical weapons attack in Douma in April 2018. The award winning scientist and MIT professor Emeritus Theodore Postol says the report shows the gas attack was "staged," and undermines the case for the US strikes that followed, in total 4 inspectors have now come forward to air serious concerns about the chemical watchdog’s Douma probe. 

However the OPCW Director General Fernando Arias has doggedly refused to address the extensive manipulation of the OPCW's probe into the alleged chemical attack in Douma. 



When it occurred in April 2018, the US, UK and France accused Syria of dropping chlorine gas cylinders that killed dozens, using staged white helmet, video footage with bodies moved and placed into certain positions for maximum effect. 

The Axis of War immediately used this an excuse to bomb the war torn country, in supposed retaliation and to help the starving war torn survivors of ISIS rule, which Syria, Iran and Russia were doing a good job at clearing out of the country, until Biden sent troops in to re-occupy the parts containing oil, and their wheat supply. 

Until now, no-one I know on the establishment side has explained why President Assad would carry out the one attack, that he knew, would cause the Axis to attack his own country after Obama stated his "red lines". 

Plus people forget that when John Kerry was asked what Assad could do to stop any attack, he replied "Give up your chemical weapons". Almost the next day, Assad handed over all his chemical weapons to Russia to be destroyed. Obama administration deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes, suggested that all of the Assad regime’s chemical weapons had been surrendered under the 2013 deal. 

In a tweet he even said that the U.S. airstrikes launched against Syrian targets “could not have ended the violence in Syria or removed all of the chemical weapons, which were destroyed through diplomacy.”. Therefore it seems very illogical for Assad who did not want any US involvement in his countries fight against the CIA backed Jihadists and ISIS, would carry out the one crime that President Obama had publicly claimed would cross a red line for the US and force them to attack the country

It is much more likely that a CIA backed jihadist group like Jaysh al-Islam, a Saudi-backed extremist militia, who were occupying Douma, a suburb of Damascus for years, carried out any attack, and then staged it so that it looked like the Syrians carried it out and were then blamed for it.

Ian Henderson, a 12-year veteran of the organization and weapons expert, had led on-the-ground inspections in Douma, and conducted a detailed engineering study of gas cylinders found at the scene. 

He concluded that the cylinders were likely “manually placed” rather than being dropped by air. A finding that suggests the attack was staged on the ground by the Saudi backed militants who controlled Douma at the time. He stated in front of the UN that “We had serious misgivings that a chemical attack had occurred,” referring to the FFM team in Douma.

When news like this airs on par with the falsehoods and lies that led us to war in Iraq that killed and displaced millions and is just being ignored by the mainstream news, it has to make you think, what would it take for MSNBC, the BBC and CNN to actually report accurately on all the anti-establishment narratives and lies that abound, now that whole News Stations and their broadcasting is being  controlled by Intelligence agencies.

It is left to sites like The Grayzone and independent journalists like Aaron Mate and Abby Martin from Empire Files to tell the truth online without getting banned from the public speaking squares we have all come to know such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

This video is from the UN as Aaron Mate debunks OPCW’s Syria lies and confronts US, UK on their cover-up.


This news is REAL news. 

It does not deserve to be dismissed by fake news people like Rachel Maddow as irrelevant, now that Biden is President, any pro-war act he takes is okay by them. 

Whether it is caused by lies just like Iraq and seemingly Syria, it does not matter to them, for real journalists to get the word out, they have to appear on right wing news channels and risk being smeared, blackmailed and labelled NAZI's by other left wing personalities, all due to them doing all they can, to actually speak the truth, and get important information and REAL NEWS out to as many people as possible.

Please tell me what you think about the Douma attacks.  Would Assad be stupid enough to carry out the one attack that would rain hell fire down on him from the Axis of War or was it staged by CIA and their paid for Saudi backed jihadists?

Key witness in Julian Assange case was lying as an FBI informant to get off charges of sexual crime against kids

How the US handles legal issues, it lies, and tortures it's targets, and uses fraudulent witnesses to boost their case.


By Dark Politricks

Get the full article here on stundin.is



A major witness in the United States’ Department of Justice case against Julian Assange has admitted to fabricating key accusations in the indictment against the Wikileaks founder. The witness, who has a documented history with sociopathy and has received several convictions for sexual abuse of minors and wide-ranging financial fraud, made the admission in a newly published interview in Stundin where he also confessed to having continued his crime spree whilst working with the Department of Justiceand FBI and receiving a promise of immunity from prosecution.

The man in question, Sigurdur Ingi Thordarson, was recruited by US authorities to build a case against Assange after misleading them to believe he was previously a close associate of his. In fact he had volunteered on a limited basis to raise money for Wikileaks in 2010 but was found to have used that opportunity to embezzle more than $50,000 from the organization. Julian Assange was visiting Thordarson’s home country of Iceland around this time due to his work with Icelandic media and members of parliament in preparing the Icelandic Modern Media Initiative, a press freedom project that produced a parliamentary resolution supporting whistleblowers and investigative journalism. 

The United States is currently seeking Assange’s extradition from the United Kingdom in order to try him for espionage relating to the release of leaked classified documents. If convicted, he could face up to 175 years in prison. The indictment has sparked fears for press freedoms in the United States and beyond and prompted strong statements in support of Assange from Amnesty International, Reporters without borders, the editorial staff of the Washington Post and many others. 

US officials presented an updated version of an indictment against him to a Magistrate court in London last summer. The veracity of the information contained therein is now directly contradicted by the main witness, whose testimony it is based on.

No instruction from Assange

The court documents refer to Mr Thordarson simply as “Teenager” (a reference to his youthful appearance rather than true age, he is 28 years old) and Iceland as “NATO Country 1” but make no real effort to hide the identity of either. They purport to show that Assange instructed Thordarson to commit computer intrusions or hacking in Iceland. 

The aim of this addition to the indictment was apparently to shore up and support the conspiracy charge against Assange in relation to his interactions with Chelsea Manning. Those occurred around the same time he resided in Iceland and the authors of the indictment felt they could strengthen their case by alleging he was involved in illegal activity there as well. This activity was said to include attempts to hack into the computers of members of parliament and record their conversations.

In fact, Thordarson now admits to Stundin that Assange never asked him to hack or access phone recordings of MPs. His new claim is that he had in fact received some files from a third party who claimed to have recorded MPs and had offered to share them with Assange without having any idea what they actually contained. He claims he never checked the contents of the files or even if they contained audio recordings as his third party source suggested. He further admits the claim, that Assange had instructed or asked him to access computers in order to find any such recordings, is false.

Nonetheless, the tactics employed by US officials appear to have been successful as can be gleaned from the ruling of Magistrate Court Judge Vanessa Baraitser on January 4th of this year. Although she ruled against extradition, she did so purely on humanitarian grounds relating to Assange’s health concerns, suicide risk and the conditions he would face in confinement in US prisons. With regards to the actual accusations made in the indictment Baraitser sided with the arguments of the American legal team, including citing the specific samples from Iceland which are now seriously called into question.

Other misleading elements can be found in the indictment, and later reflected in the Magistrate’s judgement, based on Thordarson’s now admitted lies. One is a reference to Icelandic bank documents. The Magistrate court judgement reads: “It is alleged that Mr. Assange and Teenager failed a joint attempt to decrypt a file stolen from a “NATO country 1” bank”.


Thordarson admits to Stundin that this actually refers to a well publicised event in which an encrypted file was leaked from an Icelandic bank and assumed to contain information about defaulted loans provided by the Icelandic Landsbanki. The bank went under in the fall of 2008, along with almost all other financial institutions in Iceland, and plunged the country into a severe economic crisis. The file was at this time, in summer of 2010, shared by many online who attempted to decrypt it for the public interest purpose of revealing what precipitated the financial crisis. Nothing supports the claim that this file was even “stolen” per se, as it was assumed to have been distributed by whistle-blowers from inside the failed bank.

More deceptive language emerges in the aforementioned judgment where it states: “...he [Assange] used the unauthorized access given to him by a source, to access a government website of NATO country-1 used to track police vehicles.”

This depiction leaves out an important element, one that Thordarson clarifies in his interview with Stundin. The login information was in fact his own and not obtained through any nefarious means. In fact, he now admits he had been given this access as a matter of routine due to his work as a first responder while volunteering for a search and rescue team. He also says Assange never asked for any such access.

Revealing chat logs

Thordarson spoke with a journalist from Stundin for several hours as he prepared a thorough investigative report into his activities that include never before published chat logs and new documents.

The chat logs were gathered by Thordarson himself and give a comprehensive picture of his communications whilst he was volunteering for Wikileaks in 2010 and 11. It entails his talks with WikiLeaks staff as well as unauthorized communications with members of international hacking groups that he got into contact with via his role as a moderator on an open IRC WikiLeaks forum, which is a form of live online chat. There is no indication WikiLeaks staff had any knowledge of Thordarson’s contacts with aforementioned hacking groups, indeed the logs show his clear deception. 

The communications there show a pattern where Thordarson is constantly inflating his position within WikiLeaks, describing himself as chief of staff, head of communications, No 2 in the organization or responsible for recruits. In these communications Thordarson frequently asks the hackers to either access material from Icelandic entities or attack Icelandic websites with so-called DDoS attacks. These are designed to disable sites and make them inaccessible but not cause permanent damage to content.

Stundin cannot find any evidence that Thordarson was ever instructed to make those requests by anyone inside WikiLeaks. Thordarson himself is not even claiming that, although he explains this as something Assange was aware of or that he had interpreted it so that this was expected of him. How this supposed non-verbal communication took place he cannot explain.

Furthermore, he never explained why WikiLeaks would be interested in attacking any interests in Iceland, especially at such a sensitive time while they were in the midst of publishing a huge trove of US diplomatic cables as part of an international media partnership. Assange is not known to have had any grievances with Icelandic authorities and was in fact working with members of parliament in updating Iceland’s freedom of press laws for the 21st century. 

On the FBI radar

Thordarson's rogue acts were not limited to communications of that nature as he also admits to Stundin that he set up avenues of communication with journalists and had media pay for lavish trips abroad where he misrepresented himself as an official representative of WikiLeaks.

He also admits that he stole documents from WikiLeaks staff by copying their hard drives. Among those were documents from Renata Avila, a lawyer who worked for the organization and Mr. Assange.

Thordarson continued to step up his illicit activities in the summer of 2011 when he established communication with “Sabu”, the online moniker of Hector Xavier Monsegur, a hacker and a member of the rather infamous LulzSec hacker group

In that effort all indications are that Thordarson was acting alone without any authorization, let alone urging, from anyone inside WikiLeaks.

The CIA - 70 years of coups, assassinations and false flag operations

Washington Bullets: A History of the CIA, Coups, and Assassinations

By Dark Politricks

This is from a French site so if you are going to view it there, you may want to translate it to your language to make it readable if you don't speak French. Sorry if this is badly translated but it is worth it. The full article link is here to the original source material > www.les-crises.fr

The targets of Washington's bullets were the leaders who attempted to assert their nation's economic sovereignty, writes Jeremy Kuzmarov in this review of a new book by Vijay Prashad.

70 years of CIA coups, assassinations, "false flags".

Review of Vijay Prashad's book, Washington Bullets: A History of the CIA, Coups, and Assassinations, with a preface by Evo Morales (New York: Monthly Review Press, 2020).




Washington bullets targets. Top left: Congolese leader Patrice Lumumba; top right, Cuban leader Fidel Castro; Rafael Trujillo of the Dominican Republic, bottom left, and bottom right, South Vietnamese Prime Minister Ngo Dinh Diem (boingboing.net)

At his induction hearing in February, the most recent CIA Director, William J. Burns, continued the Agency's long tradition of highlighting the threat posed by Russia and China, as well as North Korea, and said Iran should not be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons.

Vijay Prashad's new book, Washington Bullets: A History of the CIA, Coups, and Assassinations, details how fabricated foreign threats have historically been used by the Agency to wage a war against the Third World - to expand the dominance of American companies.

In his preface, Evo Morales Ayma, the former president of Bolivia who was deposed in a U.S.-backed coup in 2019, writes that Prashad's book is devoted to "the bullets that assassinated democratic processes, which have assassinated revolutions and which have assassinated hope."


Jacobo Arbenz (Gobierno de Guatemala, Fotos antiguas de Guatemala. Public domain.)

Prashad is a leading political analyst, author of major studies on imperial interventions, corporate capitalism, and political movements in the Third World.

His latest book synthesizes the wealth of his knowledge. It contains personal revelations from former CIA agents, such as the late Charles Cogan, head of the Near East and South Asia division within the CIA's directorate of operations (1979-1984), who told Prashad that in Afghanistan, the CIA had "from the start funded the worst guys, long before the Iranian revolution and long before the Soviet invasion."

Washington Bullets begins in Guatemala with the 1954 coup that overthrew Jacobo Arbenz, whose moderate program of land reform threatened the interests of the United Fruit Company.

The law firm of US Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, Sullivan & Cromwell, had represented United Fruit, and Dulles and his brother, Allen, the head of the CIA (1953-1961), were large shareholders.

Former CIA Director Walter Bedell Smith became President of United Fruit following Arbenz's impeachment, and President Dwight Eisenhower's personal secretary Ann Whitman was the wife of United Fruit's advertising director, Edmund Whitman.

After the coup, Arbenz's successor Castillo Armas said that “if it is necessary to turn the country into a cemetery in order to pacify it, I will not hesitate to do so."

The CIA contributed to this bloodbath by providing Armas with lists of Communists and by giving him his assassination protocol.

This protocol was then applied in operations directed against third world nationalists such as Patrice Lumumba in Congo (1961), Mehdi Ben Barka in Morocco (1965), Che Guevara (1967) and Thomas Sankara in Burkina Faso (1987) .

Sankara was killed as part of a conspiracy carried out in close coordination between a CIA agent at the United States Embassy in Burkina Faso and the French secret service, the SDECE.

According to Prashad, while “many of the assassins' bullets were fired by people with their own steeples, paltry rivalries, and insignificant gains, more often than not they were signed Washington bullets."

Their main objective, he said, was "to stop the tidal wave that had been sweeping since the October Revolution of 1917 and the many waves that have swept the world to form the anti-colonial movement."

Prashad, as these comments indicate, roots the crimes of the CIA in the larger history of colonialism and the hostility of the world's capitalist elites to the emancipation of the working class brought about by the Russian Revolution.

Imperialism, he reminds us, is the attempt to "subdue people to maximize the theft of resources, labour and wealth."

The targets of Washington's bullets, in turn, have been those who, like Sankara and many others, have tried to assert their nation's economic sovereignty.

The CIA's pattern of behaviour was established in the aftermath of World War II, when it supported political factions in Europe that had collaborated with the Nazis against the Communists, who in turn led the resistance against Nazism.

The agency's work, as Prashad writes, has helped "bring back to life the corpse of the reactionary European political bloc." 

In Japan, this meant the creation of a new party (the Liberal Democratic Party - LDP) to defeat the socialists, a party that absorbed old fascists (Ichiro Hatoyama and Nobusuke Kishi) and developed lasting ties with big business and organized crime (Yoshio Kodama).

In 1953, the CIA succeeded in overthrowing the democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran, Mohammed Mossadegh, who had set out to nationalize the country's oil industry.

From 1960 to 1965, the agency attempted to assassinate Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro on at least eight occasions by sending out mafia gangsters who attempted to use poison pills, poisoned pens, a poisoned cigar, a spacesuit containing tuberculosis, botulinum toxin and other deadly bacterial powders. In total, there were 638 assassination attempts - all of them were unsuccessful.

The CIA also orchestrated a coup d'état in South Vietnam in 1963 against the Diem brothers when they sought to draw closer to the National Liberation Front (FLN), a leftist party.



April 1959: Security Bureau (SY) Special Agent Leo Crampsey, left, escorts new Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro (center) on a visit to Washington, DC, shortly after the January Revolution in Cuba (US Department of State).

Another coup was carried out against the Indonesian socialist government of Achmed Sukarno, whose ouster in 1965 sparked an anti-Communist bloodbath.

The Indonesian coup of 1965 - like its predecessors in Guatemala and Iran and the one that followed it in Chile - followed a modus operandi with nine different stages:
  • put pressure on public opinion
  • appoint the suitable man in the field
  •  make sure the generals are ready
  • make the economy scream [reference to the order given by Nixon to the CIA concerning Chile “Make the economy scream” meaning “do everything in our power to condemn Chile and the Chileans to the greatest destitution
  • and poverty. ", Editor's note]
  • diplomatically isolate
  • organize mass demonstrations
  • give green light
  • murder
  • deny everything
  • Destroy economic sovereignty
Perfected and refined over the years, almost all of these steps were most recently implemented in Maidan's 2014 coup in Ukraine, and the right-wing coup against Evo Morales in Bolivia in 2019.


The memorandum which describes the organization by the CIA of the deposition of President Jacobo Árbenz in June 1954 by the paramilitaries. (US Central Intelligence Agency Public domain).

Regarding the economy, Prashad unearthed a CIA study from the early 1950s on how to jeopardize the coffee industry in Guatemala in order to undermine the Arbenz government.

It was a precursor to the Nixon administration's better-known campaign to "make Chile's economy roar" after Chileans had the audacity to elect a socialist, Salvador Allende, who nationalized the copper industry (this industry was controlled by two American companies, Kennecott and Anaconda, which lobbied for a coup).

The chief of the CIA station at the time of the 1973 coup in Chile, which brought fascist General Augusto Pinochet to power, was Henry Hecksher.

He had worked undercover as a coffee buyer in Guatemala at the time of the Arbenz coup and had bribed Colonel Hernán Monzon Aguirre who became the head of the junta that replaced Arbenz.

After being promoted, Hecksher went on to lead CIA subversion operations in Laos and Indonesia in the late 1950s and early 1960s, before leading a project against the Cuban revolution in Mexico.
