America’s Altered State Of Consciousness

Cheap beer, macaroni and cheese, NASCAR, denial, cowardice and tent cities now dominate the mental and physical landscape in the once "Land of the Free" and "Home of the Brave"    

STRATEGIC CULTURE FOUNDATION

Psychiatry defines the altered state of consciousness or mind alteration as a mental state which significantly deviates from the normal waking beta wave state of consciousness. 


Reading attentively the US President Obama’s State of the Union address the question pops up if the President really sees the world as he describes it in his speeches or is it kind of Walt Disney’s animated cartoons-style fantasies specially prepared for US internal consumption? Americans are accustomed to consume such products. Numerous Hollywood-produced Rambos, movie-made high-minded presidents and daring private Ryans regularly save the world from some kind of plague. It’s been a long time since they have used information hypnosis to make Americans believe that their country is "the best of the best" and an American is the acme of human evolution. 


There are many closed societies in the West with powerful arsenals of means to control collective consciousness. They use this potential in their interests. From this point of view the presidential annual State of the Union address is a routine act of brainwashing to make American caravan go on while the dogs (or the ill-wishers inside and outside the country) bark. 




What if someone tries to imagine a different type of President’s behavior using the scientific approach to altered consciousness? 


For instance, if a US President starts his State of the Union address with the words, "I’m sorry, ladies and gentlemen, I have lied to you for such a long time. I have always wished you well, but some people in our country made me spend your money to expand the US military presence in far-away countries. These people made our forces go to Afghanistan. We have spent 13 years to make it a democratic state. 


Now, when we have left, the Taliban will take over the reign and install its dictatorship there. We have sacrificed the lives of our soldiers and lost huge sums of money to make Muslims hate us. And that is the only result. 

It led to emergence of international armies of terrorists that threaten to establish their control over entire states and we have to start new wars to fight them. 




You’d better be ready to send your sons to Iraq once again and make it soon. It’s possible we’ll lose again because bullets are powerless against Islam. Perhaps we should stop provoking Muslims and foster terrorism no more. 

But we cannot do it because as soon as wars stop our defense industry stops too, our generals will lose jobs and our science will hopelessly drop behind. The people who have sanctioned my election want to continue the policy aimed at establishing the US control over the world. This policy confirms American exceptionalism and is key to our prosperity. We have no choice. 


We forbid the Ukrainian government from launching talks with the opponents in the east because our plans will be stymied in case Ukraine becomes a federation with Russian language prevailing. In this case Ukraine will not accept US military presence. 

That’s why we’ll press the Ukrainian government to make it fight till the last Russian. 


We’ll continue to insist that Russia attacked Ukraine. It’s hard for me to say so but it’s the only way to make the world support the United States.


The real state of things is quite different but we’ll do our best not to let the world know about it.

We’ll win the information war for America’s future! We’ll constantly combine military activities with diplomatic efforts, but our diplomacy is the big stick diplomacy. 

Europe needs such a stick to make it keep in place the anti-Russia sanctions. 

We’ll make other allies dance to our tune. 


True, the European allies don’t like us anymore but better make Europe suffer than undermine the America’s might. 


Dear Americans! The truth is that today America has become like the Roman Empire in the period of decline. 

We use the resources of our overseas provinces to the full and we’ll continue to exploit them to the utmost but the sentiments of protest against us are growing stronger in these territories. 

We give the world freedom and democracy but it does not want to listen to us. 


So, I repeat, we will have to use force more frequently. 

We cannot be irresolute. 

If we start to doubt the America’s exceptionalism and begin to hesitate then the balance of forces in the world will change not in our favour. 




So I say it in no uncertain terms concerning our foreign policy: we’ll continue to conduct clandestine operations and use power, deception and insidiousness. It is the only way to protect the gains of American people and not let the United States vanish from the world map like the Roman Empire did."

Revealed : How Blair Colluded With Gaddafi Regime In Secret

Blair can "explain" it all during his upcoming WAR CRIMES TRIAL  

BELFAST TELEGRAPH
01/24/2015

Tony Blair wrote to then Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi to thank him for the "excellent co-operation" between the two countries' counter-terrorism agencies at a time when they were allegedly collaborating in efforts to send dissidents back to the North African country.


Playing kissey-face:  Blair and Gaddafi
The letter, written in 2007, addressed "Dear Muammar" and signed "Best wishes yours ever, Tony", was among hundreds of pages of documents recovered from Libyan government offices following the 2011 revolution which ousted the dictator and pieced together by a team of London lawyers who are bringing damages claims on behalf of a dozen Gaddafi opponents who claim they were targeted by the two countries' agencies. The letter, reported in The Guardian, was written on April 26, 2007, to inform Gaddafi that the UK was about to fail in its attempts to deport two Libyans allegedly linked to an Islamist opposition organisation, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG).


Mr Blair told Gaddafi: "I trust that you, and your family, are well.

"With regret, I should let you know that the British government has not been successful in its recent court case here involving deportation to Libya. I am very disappointed by the court's decision."

He added: "I believe it is essential that this decision i s not allowed to undermine the effective bilateral co-operation which has developed between the United Kingdom and Libya in recent years.


Busom buddies:  Blair with nutcase Libyan dictator

"We have made such progress. It is important, for the good of both our peoples, that we continue to do so, not least in the crucial area of counter-terrorism."


Gadaffi found out the hard way what it was like to be "friends
with Obama and Blair
He added: "I would like to add a personal word of thanks for your assistance in the matter of deportation. 

That support - and the excellent co-operation of your officials with their British colleagues - is a tribute to the strength of the bilateral relationship which has grown up between the United Kingdom and Libya. As you know, I am determined to see that partnership develop still further."


The relationship between Libya and the UK had thawed following Gaddafi's decision to abandon weapons of mass destruction, and it is known that the two countries had co-operated on intelligence matters.


Blair with fellow war criminal Obama
A spokesman for Mr Blair said: "There is nothing secret about the fact that the UK and the then Libyan government co-operated in the fight against terrorism. 

It was public. 

Or that the then Libyan government gave up their chemical and nuclear weapons programme and that this happened in 2003 after negotiation.


"At that time the UK was fighting a serious terrorist threat aimed at its people and its soldiers. None of that means the UK Government accepted or condoned torture."

The Guardian said the papers recovered from Libya were now forming the basis of the damages claim being brought by si x Libyan men, the widow of a seventh, and five British citizens of Libyan and Somali origin.


It will be a "family" war criminal reunion at the upcoming war crimes trials, with Blair, Bush, Cheney,  Obama and their criminal crews all in attendance

The newspaper said they are bringing claims against the British government on the basis of the recovered documents, alleging false imprisonment, blackmail, misfeasance in public office and conspiracy to assault.

Woman Strip - Searched By Prison Guards To Prove She’s Menstruating

As if it could not get any sicker in the gulag that is now America - and this woman was a VISITOR  

RT
01/24/2015

A woman visiting an inmate at a privately-run Tennessee prison said guards forced her to expose her genitals to prove she was menstruating when she tried to take a sanitary napkin into the facility, according to a lawsuit.


The woman, identified only as Jane Doe, claims her constitutional rights were violated when – after clearing one security checkpoint – guards noticed the sanitary napkin sticking out her pocket. A guard asked about the “feminine sanitary napkin” in her pocket, and the woman said she needed it because she was menstruating.

Afterwards, the guard insisted she be searched to prove she was menstruating. The woman offered to leave the prison or leave the pad behind. She even offered to show the guards her used menstrual pad. 


However, they insisted she had to be searched, or she would have forfeit visiting the prison again.

The woman says she was instructed to go into a bathroom stall, drop her pants and underwear, and allow a female officer to inspect her genitalia.


Private prisons must be outlawed, shut down

The lawsuit claims that the woman was not free to leave and that prison’s visitor policy at the time stated: "Any visitor refusing a search of any type may be permanently restricted from visiting."


Corrections Corporation of America spokesman Jonathan Burns wrote in an email to the Huffington Post that maintaining safe facilities was a top priority.




"To that end, CCA facilities employ standardized policies and procedures to prevent the introduction of contraband, which are typically prescribed by our government partners," Burns wrote.



Obama and Holder will soon enough be getting
a first-hand look at their own creations
The Tennessee Department of Corrections said it had not yet reviewed the lawsuit and could not comment, although a policy from February 2014 said visitors may have to replace feminine hygiene products in the presence of a guard – but only if there is reasonable suspicion to prove that contraband is being brought in. The policy mentioned nothing about the visual inspection of genitalia. The woman has asked the court to let her proceed anonymously because of the embarrassing details of the claims. 




The lawsuit seeks damages for the woman's humiliation and asks that the prison's policy on such searches be banned because it's unconstitutional.


"Plaintiff should not be forced to make the intolerable choice between abstaining from visiting an inmate in prison because she is on her period and visiting the prison with the risk of being subjected to another humiliating and degrading search of her exposed genitalia," the lawsuit says.




Martin F. Horn, a former commissioner of corrections in New York City and former secretary of corrections in Pennsylvania, told the Associated Press that a search like the one alleged in the lawsuit is"inconsistent with usual correctional practices."

“Al Qaeda R Us” : John McCain’s “Moderate Rebels” In Syria Are ISIS

In any other representative democracy, this is called TREASON  

GLOBAL RESEARCH
By Patrick Henningsen
01/24/2015

Poor John McCain and Lindsey Graham, Washington’s original first couple. They only want to arm the ‘moderate opposition’ in Syria. Three years on, how come their master plan isn’t working, while ISIS has grown so strong?

Despite what media lauded as, “the largest demonstration in France’s history – bigger than liberation at the end of WWII!” (can you rightly compare the two), the Paris Attacks are fading fast into the rear view mirror. The media went to great lengths to reinforce the scary prospect of the ‘ISIS in Europe’, even though there is spurious, if any, real evidence to support that claim. Nonetheless, a lack of evidence has never stopped the media from conjuring up a frightening new trend.


McCain
In the light of the recent Paris Attacks it’s more important than ever to take a sober look, and perhaps shine a light on the fact that there are no real ‘moderate rebels’ in Syria, no more than there are in Iraq.

On Tuesday during his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama touted great strides in “halting the advance of ISIS” with US-led airstrikes in Syria and Iraq. Today, US Ambassador Stuart Jones announced that “Coalition Airstrikes” (US airstrikes) have killed 6,000 ISIS byHow the US is able to conjure up such incredible Jack and the Beanstalk-style numbers (all but impossible to verify) is beyond anyone outside of Washington. You just have to take his word for it. Just like we just had to take US Ambassador to the Ukraine’s word for it – when Geoffrey Pyatt Tweeted a few random Digital Globe images claiming that the Russians invaded Ukraine, again.After six or so ‘Russian Invasion’ false starts, we’re still waiting for evidence beyond Twitter.


The lies and creative accounting have been palpable since the beginning of the US airstrikes in Syria. Early strikes weren’t actually against ISIS, but rather against a number of impressive empty buildings, and buildings which were curiously evacuated days before the US conducted the raids. How interesting.

This brings us to the issue of who ISIS really is, and how did ISIS build up to the level they are at today. It’s a particularly embarrassing thing to admit, because when you allow this fact out of the bag, then skeptics start asking more questions, and if there’s one thing that politicians hate more than anything, it’s facts and questions.




So, what happened to all of McCain’s “moderate opposition”? You know, the ones which President Obama, John Kerry, David Cameron and the rest of the ‘liberate Syria’ gang insist need our help with more weapons and cash? New Eastern Outlook geopolitical analysis and writer Tony Cartalucci explains:

Reported along the peripheries of the Western media, it was reported recently that some 3,000 so-called “moderate rebels” of the “Free Syrian Army” had defected to the “Islamic State” (ISIS). While not the first time so-called “moderates” have crossed over openly to Al Qaeda or ISIS, it is one of the largest crossovers that has occurred. With them, these 3,000 fighters will bring weapons, cash, equipment, and training provided to them by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United States, the UK, and perhaps most ironic of all in the wake of the recent terror attack in Paris, France. Indeed, ISIS and Al Qaeda’s ranks continue to swell amid this insidious network of “terror laundering” that is only set to grow.


This means there’s no “moderate rebels” to speak of, so therefore ISIS is McCain’s Army. Washington’s nation-builders are banking on the fact that Americans are not smart enough, or too brain-dead to work this one out. Since 2012, the war-obsessed Senator has dedicated a little too much of his valuable taxpayer-funded time to lobbying for more arms and more cash for his “freedom fighters” in Syria, fighters who are well-known outside of Washington to be all but ubiquitous with violent terrorist fighting groups al Qaeda, al Nusra, Front Victory and ISIS/ISIL/IS


Ten years of war theater in Iraq was time enough to cultivate and develop al Qaeda and Islamic State ‘death squads’ under US destabilization experts like John Negoponte and Robert Ford. Top ISIS fighting units grew directly out of Negoponte’s Death Squads from 2005 onwards. Death Suad recruits were hand-picked and drawn from the Shia, Kurdish, and some Sunni resistance militias, as well as foreign fighter insurgents and other ‘soldiers of fortune’ in Iraq. Death squads were designed to divide and disrupt communities and any remaining Sunnis and Shi’ite oppositions to the US occupation in Iraq. In addition, mythologies were erected, like the one surrounding actor-leaders like ‘al-Baghdadi’ (more on him below).

The first hint we had of Washington’s desert rat installment Operation Fast and Furious, came in September 2012, when a rented villa in Libya’s port city of Benghazi went up in flames. Later we find out that the makeshift ‘embassy’ was really part of a clandestine CIA complex where the US was organizing the shipment of ex-Gaddafi arms stocks over to Washington’s burgeoning new bloodbath in Syria.




Many Americans and other followers of this story may still be unaware that, Abdel Hakim-Belhadj (photo, left), the al Qaeda lieutenant who the US held at ‘Penny Lane’ in Guantanamo Bay (Gitmo) and then subsequently turned (or debriefed) by the CIA, and released back into the field as a double agent, leading the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group on behalf of NATO in their effort to overthrow Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2010-2011. WND reported this week that The Citizen’s Commission on Benghazi’s interim report, revealed how “the U.S. was fully aware of and facilitating the delivery of weapons to the Al Qaeda-dominated rebel militias throughout the 2011 rebellion”, an illegal operation carried out behind the back of Congress, and under management of then US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. After toppling the Gaddafi gov’t, Washington rewarded Hakim-Belhadj with the position of Governor of Tripoli, after which time, he played a key roll in the continual recruitment and further redeployment of battle-hardened Libyan jihadist fighters over to Syria. There is also the issue of Muslim Brotherhood members and their al Qaeda affiliations, embedded in NATO-backed Transnational Council (TNC) government in Libya, during and after, the fall of Gaddafi, which was explained by Dr Jerome Corsi in the WND story. Along with the fighters, more weapons, comprised of ex-Gaddafi arms stocks, also had to be moved from Libya, through Turkey and into Syria.


To clarify, Libyan Islamic fighting groups who worked hand-in-hand with US, British and French, and NATO intelligence agencies to topple Gaddafi in 2011 – were openly flying the al Qaeda and ISIS ‘black flag’ after Gaddafi’s gov’t collapsed, before and during the time they were shipped on to fight in Syria against Bashar al Assad’s gov’t forces – on behalf of those very same NATO-allied agencies.

WND’s report continues:


In early 2011, before Gadhafi was deposed, Christopher Stevens came to Benghazi in a cargo ship, and his title at the time was envoy to the Libyan rebels,’ which basically means Christopher Stevens was America’s very first envoy to al-Qaida,” explained Clare Lopez, a member of the commission who served as a career operations officer with the CIA and currently is vice president for research at the Washington-based Center for Security Policy. At that time, Stevens was facilitating the delivery of weapons to the al-Qaida-related militia in Libya,” Lopez continued. “The weapons were produced at factories in Eastern Europe and shipped to a logistics hub in Qatar. The weapons were financed by the UAE and delivered via Qatar mostly on ships, with some possibly on airplanes, for delivery to Benghazi. The weapons were small arms, including Kalashnikovs, rocket-propelled grenades and lots of ammunition.”

Later on, NATO allies opted for a more consolidated effort to first be staged in Europe, and then on to Syria. The first major arms shipment on record was organized by the US, Britain and France in March 2013, in what is known as the Great Croatian Weapons Airlift, which comprised of 75 airplanes, and an estimated 3,000 tons of military weaponry – bound for Jordan.


McCain with terrorist scum; he entered the sovereign country of Syria illegally

Then we learned on Sept 13, 2013, how the CIA had openly announced financial and military aid to the “moderate rebels” (now ISIS recruits). US politicians were brimming with excitement at the time, proudly coming out of the closet on their brilliant new program. Mark S. Ward, the State Department’s senior adviser on assistance to Syria boasted, “This doesn’t only lead to a more effective force, but it increases its ability to hold coalition groups together.” Indeed. Look how effective ISIS has become. Nice work Mark.


It’s a cheap ploy: the idea that there’s some sort of “moderate rebel army” waiting in Syria and the surrounding western collaborator nations, like Jordan and Turkey.

The reality is simply horrific – armed Salafist militants, whose true nature and existence is being shielded by lies and endless propaganda in the West – in an effort to wear down the media and then the public on this issue.

ISIS is one giant mercenary army and organized crime organ – one which I have already referred to as 21st century ‘Sand Pirates’.


For extra beer money, these privateers are targeting civilians, running kidnapping and sex rings, protection, extortion, ‘taxes’ and black markets for anything they can put their thumbs on; food, fuel, retail, property, transport and of course narcotics. They’re even collecting “international aid” and UN/NGO funds on the streets of Northern Syria. The CIA’s go-between in Syria is General Salim ‘Sam’ Idriss, leader of the ‘Free Syria Army’, which is merely a shop-front for the US State Department to conduct over-the-counter business and gain access, delivering kinds of aid to terrorist fighting groups and Death Squads in Syria and Iraq – in the exact same way that TNC-linked Libyan ‘Rebels’ were a shop-front which linked NATO to Libyan Islamic Fighting Group and al Qaeda (AQIM) paramilitaries in Libya.

According to a New York Times story published in 2007, the feared ISIS leader, Abdullah Rashid al-Baghdadi, never existed, according to Brigadier General Kevin Bergner – the chief American military spokesman at the time. Yes, ‘al-Baghdadi’, is a fictional character whose audio-taped declarations were provided by an elderly actor named Abu Adullah al-Naima.




A large number of McCain’s ‘freedom-lovers’ have been trained by the best – US and British special forces and contractors based in Jordan and Turkey. Weapons and funding have been steadily supplied by the US and its Gulf monarchs – Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain and others, Moreover, Israel has been consistently giving the “moderate rebels” aid and air support.

What’s the master plan? That’s debatable, as the opportunists of instability line up on all sides to accumulate what they can in chaos. Essentially what we are looking at is a US-led effort to over-run the region with the ISIS and ISIS-related scourge, killing all stability and ability for Syria, Iraq and Iran to coordinate any meaningful military, economic or political enterprise, like a major oil or gas pipeline connecting the Asian and European markets, for instance.




To achieve this, a regional sectarian bloodbath is required. This suits Saudi Arabia, as well as the US and Israel. A happy Axis. But it’s a raw deal for the region, and the damage being inflicted by this proxy disaster is certain to poison generations upon generations, destroying cities, villages, families and whole cultures in the process. For more background on the underlying policy and practice, it’s worth reading Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh’s New Yorker article ”The Redirection: Is the Administration’s new policy benefiting our enemies in the war on terrorism?”.

If this all sounds too much for you, then it’s imperative to take a moment, and better understand exactly how you’re being programmed in this global, mass media psycho-drama.
