Energy Aggression Against Russia is Expanding, by Peter Lvov

4534521

During his recent trip to Ankara, President Vladimir Putin said on December 1 that the construction of the South Stream gas pipeline project for Southern Europe would be terminated due to the negative position of both Bulgaria and Brussels. Instead of that, it was proposed to build a gas pipeline through the territory of Turkey to its western borders with the EU, where it will be possible to create a kind of a “gas hub” for the countries of Southern and South-Eastern Europe. Naturally, this has caused a nervous reaction of some Europeans. It is one thing to bluff to the tune of the Americans, while it’s quite another to lose an opportunity to purchase gas directly from Russia, bypassing another difficult transit country – Turkey, instead of unreliable Ukraine. What we are talking about here means to “bargain one trouble for another”.

And the fact that Ankara is not the easiest partner for Brussels is understandable; after all, it was EU that for decades stubbornly refused Turkish membership in the EU. At the same time they are actively involving Turkey in NATO plans in relation to Iraq and Syria. And almost immediately the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Ms. Federica Mogherini, arrived as a head of the representative delegation to meet with President Erdogan in an attempt to convince him to refuse from engaging in President Vladimir Putin’s gas project proposal.

USAID Exposed in Cuba – What it Tells Us About US Subversion Worldwide, by Tony Cartalucci

cuba1

December 13, 2014 (Tony Cartalucci – LD) – Revealed in an Associated Press (AP) investigation, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) had for two years attempted to create and exploit a social network within Cuba for the purpose of sparking unrest and overthrowing the Cuban government. The program was an abject failure, primarily because the Cuban government took the necessary measures to investigate, interrogate, and otherwise disrupt what was foreign-backed sedition.

AP would reveal in its report titled, “US co-opted Cuba’s hip-hop scene to spark change,” that:

The program is laid out in documents involving Creative Associates International, a Washington, D.C., contractor paid millions of dollars to undermine Cuba’s communist government. The thousands of pages include contracts, emails, preserved chats, budgets, expense reports, power points, photographs and passports.

The work included the creation of a “Cuban Twitter” social network and the dispatch of inexperienced Latin American youth to recruit activists, operations that were the focus of previous AP stories.

Far from the first time USAID and other US organizations claiming to be aiding in development but in fact engaged in political subversion, the Cuban program itself was based on another US-backed program used to topple the government of Serbia in 2000, AP would reveal.

The USAID operation involved money covertly funneled into Cuba through front companies and offshore banks. USAID, despite the evidence, has wholly denied the operation, as has other US organizations caught in blatant political subversion.

Regarding USAID’s denial, AP would report:

“Any assertions that our work is secret or covert are simply false,” USAID said in a statement Wednesday. Its programs were aimed at strengthening civil society “often in places where civic engagement is suppressed and where people are harassed, arrested, subjected to physical harm or worse.”

If by “civil society,” USAID means networks of political subversion operating in the interests of Wall Street and Washington, then that is precisely what USAID was doing in Cuba, and does elsewhere around the world. However, USAID’s insistence that none of its work was “secret or covert” is simply a lie.

AP, in another report titled, “5 things to know about USAID’s Cuban hip-hop plan,” would reveal that USAID covered up its Cuban program under the guise of “health and civic programs.”  The same report would claim that USAID funding was hidden from the Cubans themselves involved in the program, adding an extra layer of duplicity and deceit.

What USAID’s Cuban Subversion Tells Us About US Subversion Globally 

1. The United States is engaged in political subversion around the world, disguised as “democracy promotion” and even development aid for “health and civic programs.”

A Call from the Chimpanzees of the Future, by Pieces et Maindoeuvre

Introduction

Fighting to preserve human dignity is a many-facetted struggle. As the apparatus of repression becomes increasingly brutal and sophisticated, developments in the high-tech world mean we are challenged both as individuals and as a community. With the accent exclusively on ‘innovation’, change has become an ideological pillar of a merciless industrial culture hellbent on erasing every knowledge base, inherited from the past, to disorientate and enslave people, by destabilising and destroying their environment.

A philosophical truism suggests that existential threats bring out the best and the worst in us. France is not alone in producing intellectuals and original thinkers. It is however the birthplace of the Faucheurs Volontaires movement and home to Criigen, enabling Gilles-Eric Séralini and his team to produce their ground breaking in vivo GMO study ie both forms of well organised resistance to the likes of Monsanto.

It is also a nation state fully integrated into NATO and the Anglo-Zionist Empire, one capable of voting draconian legislation to muzzle dissent and where a humourist by the name of Dieudonné M’bala M’bala invented a simple gesture “la Quenelle” to ridicule the political establishment, reducing his deadliest foes to a caricature of themselves and revealing them to be what they really are in reality : pompous oafs.

Part of our task at The Saker is sowing the seeds to mobilise public opinion on fundamental issues which, for obvious reasons, the Deep State and the Multinationals would dearly like to keep out of the headlines. All the more reason why we choose to publish this key text from France, translated by Paul Matthews.

A Call from the Chimpanzees of the Future 

Brother Humans, Sister Humans …

Possibly you’ve heard of transhumanism and of transhumanists ; of a mysterious threat from a secretive and fanatical caucus of scientists and industrialists – discreet and powerful – whose intrigues and stated objective are to liquidate, as it were, ‘common or garden’ humans beings and replace them with a Race of Superhumans – an “enhanced” Species of Men-Machines. A species derived from Eugenics and from
the convergence of Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Information technology and Cognitive science (NIBC) and huge advances in science.
