The Break Up of the USA

How it might look in the future?

On 24 November 2008, Professor Igor Panarin, in an interview with Izvestia, said that the USA is heading for collapse, and will break up. (Russian analyst predicts decline and breakup of U.S. )

Panarin, 60, is a professor at the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and has written books on information warfare.

Professor Igor Panarin said:

A. "The dollar is not secured by anything.

"The country's foreign debt has grown like an avalanche, even though in the early 1980s there was no debt.

"By 1998, when I first made my prediction, it had exceeded $2 trillion.

"Now it is more than 11 trillion.

B. "This is a pyramid that can only collapse...

"It is already collapsing.

"Due to the financial crisis, three of the largest and oldest five banks on Wall Street have already ceased to exist, and two are barely surviving.

"Their losses are the biggest in history.

"Now what we will see is a change in the regulatory system on a global financial scale: America will no longer be the world's financial regulator."

When asked who would replace the U.S. in regulating world markets, he said:

"Two countries could assume this role: China, with its vast reserves, and Russia, which could play the role of a regulator in Eurasia."


C. Asked why he expected the U.S. to break up into separate parts, he said:

"A whole range of reasons.

"Firstly, the financial problems in the U.S. will get worse.

"Millions of citizens there have lost their savings.

"Prices and unemployment are on the rise.

"General Motors and Ford are on the verge of collapse, and this means that whole cities will be left without work.

"Governors are already insistently demanding money from the federal center.

"Dissatisfaction is growing, and at the moment it is only being held back by the elections and the hope that Obama can work miracles.

"But by spring, it will be clear that there are no miracles."

He also mentioned the "vulnerable political setup",

"lack of unified national laws",

and "divisions among the elite, which have become clear in these crisis conditions."

Map from: American Civil War - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

D. He predicted that the U.S. will break up into six parts

1. the Pacific coast, with its growing Chinese population;

2. the South, with its Hispanics;

3. Texas, where independence movements are on the rise;

4. the Atlantic coast, with its distinct and separate mentality;

5. five of the poorer central states with their large Native American populations;

6. and the northern states, where the influence from Canada is strong.

E. On the fate of the U.S. dollar, he said:

"In 2006 a secret agreement was reached between Canada, Mexico and the U.S. on a common Amero currency as a new monetary unit.

"This could signal preparations to replace the dollar.

"The one-hundred dollar bills that have flooded the world could be simply frozen. Under the pretext, let's say, that terrorists are forging them and they need to be checked."

THE TORTURE OF AMERICAN CHILDREN

Bonacci in front of the ranch where, reportedly, Johnny Gosch, and other boys were held captive.


It has been widely reported that the US military tortures American children as part of mind-control experiments.

1. Paul A. Bonacci said that, as a child, he was kidnapped, tortured and subjected to sex abuse and mind control.

In 1999, in a court in Omaha, he won $1,000,000 in damages. (Mind Control Victim Awarded $1 Million)

Bonacci in his testimony referred to the involvement of top members of the US military and top politicians in child abuse.

The Washington Times reported that Paul Bonacci had access to the White House living quarters.

Johnny Gosch is reportedly one of those tortured by the US military. www.cremationofcare.com/the_nwo_teaoc.htm / Mind Control Victim Awarded $1 Million

Bonacci testified on videotape (5-14-1990) for Nebraska State Police investigator Gary Caradori:

"Bonacci said that while on a trip to Sacramento, he was forced at gun-point to commit homosexual acts on another boy before he watched other men do the same - after which the boy was shot in the head." (Child sex rings linked to top Americans? Part 2)

Lt Col Aquino

Col. Michael Aquino is one of those frequently mentioned in cases relating to child abuse and mind-control. (Michael Aquino, child sex abuse and the United States.)

Kurt Lewin

2. In 1921, in London, the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations was set up to study the 'breaking point' of humans. (Project Monarch: Nazi Mind Control by Ron Patton)

In 1932, Kurt Lewin, a German-Jewish psychologist, became the director of the Tavistock Institute.

He studied the use of terror to achieve mind control. (Cached )

In Germany, similar research was being carried out by the Germans.

There were many links between the fascists in Germany and the fascists in Britain. For example, the Order of the Golden Dawn, a masonic-style secret society which had Aleister Crowley as a member, included German Nazis and British aristocrats. (Project Monarch: Nazi Mind Control by Ron Patton)

Mengele who reportedly worked for the CIA and helped to brainwash Oswald (aangirfan: Mengele, Oswald, the CIA )

3. Dr. Josef Mengele studied mind-control at Auschwitz. Children were tortured and sometimes died. (MENGELE, MOSSAD AND THE CIA).

One of Mengele's reluctant assistants was Berthold Epstein, who was Jewish.

How the Nazis treated children

4. During World War II, at Colgate University in the USA, Dr. George Estabrooks of Colgate University was working on mind-control. (George Estabrooks - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

5. After World War II, the U.S. military brought a large number of the top German Nazi scientists to the United States. The code name for this operation was Project Paperclip. (aangirfan: MENGELE, MOSSAD AND THE CIA )

6. The CIA's Project Bluebird, approved by director Allen Dulles in 1950, had the aim investigating the possibility of controlling a person by using certain interrogation techniques.

In 1953, the CIA set up Project MKULTRA to study mind-control. (Project Monarch: Nazi Mind Control by Ron Patton)

Reportedly, the Nazis brought to America, after World war II, helped with this project.

The methods used to produce mind-control included 'electroshock'.

Operation Spellbinder was set up to create 'sleeper' assassins or 'Manchurian candidates'.


MKULTRA child www.atasbawah.com/page/4/

In the early 1960s, the US military began Project Monarch. (Project Monarch: Nazi Mind Control by Ron Patton)

With Monarch, torture is used to produce mind-control.

The people whose minds have been controlled are reportedly used by the military as sex slaves. They can be used to blackmail politicians. They can be used to infiltrate organisations. They can be used to carry out assassinations or suicide bombings.

Reportedly, when the military are looking for people whose minds they can control, they look for people connected to orphanages, foster care homes, families linked to military intelligence, families with adopted children, families interested in Satanism andfamilies involved in child abuse.

Reportedly, many of the mind-control victims come from families linked to certain forms of Catholicism, Mormonism, or charismatic Christianity.

Reportedly, victims are often found to have scars or marks suggesting multiple electrical prods and mutilation by knives, branding irons, or needles. (Project Monarch: Nazi Mind Control by Ron Patton)

MKULTRA victim Blanche Chavoustie www.raven1.net/bcanomal.htm

7. Names linked to US mind-control experiments include Dr Ewen Cameron, Lt Col Michael Aquino, a Jewish doctor named Dr. Gruenbaum and Dr. Josef Mengele. (Project Monarch: Nazi Mind Control by Ron Patton)

Survivors of abuse under the Nazis remember Mengele torturing and killing a small child in front of a child he was programming.

Dr. D. Ewen Cameron was the former head of the Canadian, American and World Psychiatric Associations.

He carried out torture experiments on children at several locations in Montreal, including McGill University, St Mary’s Hospital and Allan Memorial Institute.

Cameron

Cameron used the technique called 'psychic driving,' where children were kept in a drug induced coma for several weeks and given electroshocks, while electronic helmets were strapped to their heads and repetitive auditory messages were transmitted at variable speeds.

(Gordon Thomas, Journey into Madness: The True Story of Secret CIA Mind Control and Medical Abuse, Bantam Books, 1989)

Many of the victims were abused children from Roman Catholic orphanages.

Project MKULTRA was publicly exposed in 1970, through lawsuits filed by Canadian survivors and their families. The CIA and Canadian government settled out of court.

(BBC documentary on Cameron Click here to watch. )

Lt. Col. Michael Aquino, Aquino was connected with the Presidio Army Base day care scandal, in which he was accused child molestation.

Dr. Sydney Gottleib and Lt. Col John Alexander are also said to be linked to MKULTRA.

Fort Detrick, where the anthrax came from.

8. The Monarch mind-control experiments reportedly took place at the following locations:

Cornell, Duke, Princeton, UCLA, University of Rochester, MIT, Georgetown University Hospital, Maimonides Medical Center, St. Elizabeth’s Hospital (Washington D.C.), Bell Laboratories, Stanford Research Institute, Westinghouse Friendship Laboratories, General Electric, ARCO and Manking Research Unlimited.

China Lake Naval Weapons Center, The Presidio, Ft. Dietrick, Ft. Campbell, Ft. Lewis, Ft. Hood, Redstone Arsenal, Offutt AFB, Patrick AFB, McClellan AFB, MacGill AFB, Kirkland AFB, Nellis AFB, Homestead AFB, Grissom AFB, Maxwell AFB and Tinker AFB

Langley Research Center, Los Alamos National Laboratories, Tavistock Institute and areas in or by Mt. Shasta, CA, Lampe, MO and Las Vegas, NV. (Project Monarch: Nazi Mind Control by Ron Patton)

9. One well known victim of CIA mind-control is Cathy O’Brien, who refers to abuse by her father, forced prostitution involving top people, and working as a drugs mule. (Trance-Formation.com - Cathy O'Brien's website /Google Videos of Cathy O'Brien)

10. Paul Bonaci has testified about sexually-abused boys from Boy’s Town in Nebraska being taken to nearby Offutt Air Force Base, where he says they were subjected to mind-control programming.

Bonnaci remembers being flown, with other boys, from the Air Force base to California and Bohemian Grove. (Project Monarch: Nazi Mind Control by Ron Patton)

Some victims were apparently murdered.

Offutt air force base

It is supected that Lee Harvey Oswald, Sirhan-Sirhan, Charlie Manson, John Hinckley Jr., Mark Chapman, David Koresh, Tim McVeigh and John Salvi may have been mind-control victims. (Project Monarch: Nazi Mind Control by Ron Patton )

11. In 1992, Dr. Corydon Hammond, a Psychologist from the University of Utah, delivered a lecture entitled “Hypnosis in MPD: Ritual Abuse” at the Fourth Annual Eastern Regional Conference on Abuse and Multiple Personality, in Alexandria, Virginia. (Project Monarch: Nazi Mind Control by Ron Patton)

Hammond referred to the Nazi connection and military and CIA mind control research.

He is one of many people who have spoken out.

Neocon Obama

On 2 November 2008, kennysideshow produced an important article on Rahm Emanuel who might become Obama's Chief of Staff. The article contains material from a variety of sources.

A Look at Rahm Emanuel - Obama's Chief of Staff?


'Obama is controlled by Rahm Emanuel,
an Israeli son-of-a-terrorist (Heb. "ben zonah") and
Zionist extremist.
Dreaming of change in America? Don't bank on it.' Source: Christopher Bollyn

OMG! Obama wants Ziocon Rahm Emanuel as his Chief of Staff!

Check this AP news item:

"Barack Obama's campaign has approached Illinois Rep. Rahm Emanuel about possibly serving as White House chief of staff "

Rahm Emanuel is, along with Joe Lieberman, just about the most fanatical Ziocon in Congress. He is at least as evil and fanatical as any Richard Perle or Paul Wolfowitz. The simple fact that Obama is seriously considering making him his Chief of Staff really says it all.

You guys who wanted to vote Obama should really take a long hard look at what this newsitem indicates and search your consciences for the answer to the question of whether a vote for Obama would be really a vote for the "lesser evil" or even a vote for "change".

The Saker

Who is Rahm Emanuel, Obama's prospective Chief of Staff?

As a follow up to my previous post, I would like to introduce Rahm Emanuel to those of you who are not familiar with him. Here are three excellent articles which I highly recommend to you all:

Andrew Cockburn: Meet Rahm Emanuel
John Walsh: How Rahm Emanuel Has Rigged a Pro-War Congress
John Walsh: Emanuel's War Plan for Democrats

I think these three are a *must read* for anyone contemplating an Obama vote.

Currently Obama is being very oblique when asked to confirm the reports that he approached Emanual to offer him this position. This makes sense. Obama is clearly a puppet in all this, and the real decisions will be taken by the puppeteers, In fact, there is a good chance that Emanuel himself is one of the puppeteers in this story so the decision to come out from the safer world of behind the scenes politics is probably his to make. Still, Chief of Staff is an immensely powerful position to hold (just remember Don Regan) and it would allow Emanuel to control Obama's activities 24/7.

Again, the mere fact that Obama would even contemplate placing himself in the hands of a Uber-Zionist like Emanuel should obliterate any hopes anyone could have harbored about Obama being a lesser evil or a candidate for change (although the "change" thing really got voided at the choice of Joe Biden for VP, the ultimate non-change politician).

Guys, don't do it! You will hate yourself for at least four years if you vote Obama.

Either abstain, or vote Nader or McKinney, but don't do this to your conscience. Don't vote for AIPAC's puppet!

Son of a Zionist Terrorist: Rahm Emanuel’s Dirty Secret

Christopher Bollyn

Greg Bacon's blog / Wake Up From Your Slumber

The new "golden boy" of the Democrat Party, the Israeli-American congressman Rahm Emanuel, is the son of a terrorist. Really, I am not making this up, the chief power-broker of the Democrat Party, the 5-and-a-half foot foul-mouthed Israeli named Rahm, is the son of a terrorist – a real living terrorist.

So, what do we do as citizens of the land of the free and the home of the brave fighting the War on Terror? Do we run and hide from the foul-mouthed little Israeli who danced ballet and swears for effect - or do we laugh? Or do we demand answers? How can we respect a U.S. Congressman who served in a foreign army and whose father was a terrorist?

Rep. Rahm Benjamin Emanuel, the Democrat congressman for the 5th District of Illinois in Chicago is the son of an Israeli terrorist. Rahm's father, Benjamin, was a member of the Irgun, the Zionist terrorist organization that coined a new word as they blew up hotels, train stations, and other buildings in Palestine in the 1930s and 40s.

Rahm was an Israeli citizen until he was 18 years old, when for obvious reasons he hid his Israeli passport in his underwear drawer. In 1991, however, he pulled his Israeli passport out and went and reportedly joined the Israeli Army to defend Zion from Saddam's Scuds.

Irgun, the army of his father, is short for Irgun Zvai Leumi, which supposedly means something like "National Military Organization" in Hebrew. As a matter of fact, the Irgun was simply a terrorist Zionist group that operated in Palestine from 1931 to 1948. They killed innocent Palestinians and British soldiers and blew up buildings.

After 1948 they became part of the new Israeli government and did the same thing. In September 2001 they put their skills to work in New York City and Washington to kick start the "war on terror" - a conflict long promoted by their chief architect, Bibi Netanyahu, son of the former secretary of Ze'ev Jabotinsky. [Ze'ev's former name was Vladimir]

The Irgun even has a website with pictures of the buildings they blew up before they demolished the World Trade Center with Thermite and high explosives:

(Note: There are numerous pictures of Irgun terrorist activities at this link.)

In Israel, the Irgun is referred to as Etzel, an acronym of the group's Hebrew initials. The Irgun was considered a terrorist organization by the British authorities as well as by mainstream Zionist and Jewish organizations, such as the Jewish Agency, the Haganah and the Histadrut. (It just has not made it onto the U.S. State Department's list of terrorist organizations – even after blowing up the World Trade Center. Some people are slow to learn.)

Irgun was founded by Ze'ev Jabotinsky and the relationship with Jabotinsky's Revisionist Zionism made it the predecessor to Israel's right-wing Herut and Likud parties.

Guess who runs Israel today?

Answer: The sons and daughters of Irgun. (Check out the commander list on the Etzel website if you don't believe me.)

Guess who runs the United States today? The same people – let's start with Rahm Emanuel.

Of course you won't find anything Rep. Emanuel's father's exploits in Palestine on Rahm's website.

The late Sherman Skolnick of Chicago called Rahm Emanuel the "Acting Deputy Chief for North America of the Mossad – Israeli Intelligence.

Skolnick went on to say that Emanuel's father Benjamin had been "part of the Israeli assassin team that murdered Sweden's Count [Folke] Bernadotte" in 1948. Bernadotte was the envoy of the United Nations in Palestine who sought to find a solution to the UN Partition Plan that gave Palestinian land to Jews from "beyond the pale."

Was Skolnick correct? Skolnick does not document his claims.

"Beyond the pale" would certainly describe where Rahm Emanuel's family came from. His father's family came to Palestine from somewhere in the Ukraine in 1917, according to what Dr. Benjamin M. Emanuel told me the other day. Dr. Emanuel now lives on the appropriately named Locust Road in Wilmette, Illinois.

Benjamin, speaking with a thick Israeli accent, told me that his father's name was Ezekiel Auerbach and that his mother's name was Pinina or something like that. He said it meant "pearl" in Hebrew. Asked about his role in the Irgun, Ben told me he had been a "simple soldier."

Yes, Ben, but serving as "simple soldier" in a terrorist organization makes you a terrorist. And the fact that you served in a terrorist organization 60 years ago makes no difference. You know, same rules for Nazis and terrorists.

Is that not what all those fellows in Guantanamo are being held for?

The Emanuel family name was Auerbach until 1936, although they are not related to the famous rabbinical family of Germany and Krakow named Auerbach. Ben said that his family was from Russia. (Well, the pale but not quite Russia.)

His father Ezekiel supposedly changed the family name to Emanuel when his son with that name died fighting Palestinians in 1936.

Many Jewish families in Palestine changed their names to make themselves sound like they actually came from Palestine. And you wondered where all those Jews disappeared during World War II?

Sheinerman became Sharon, Yezernitzky became Shamir, and Auerbach became Emanuel, and so on. And then multiply by a few hundred thousand. Voila! Millions of European Jews vanish from the face of the Earth - and build new lives in Palestine.

Ben told me that Emanuel Auerbach had died from "shrapnel in the knee" in 1936. When I asked him today for details on this incident he suddenly decided that he did not want to do an interview on the phone and hung up.

But before he terminated the conversation, Dr. Benjamin Auerbach-cum-Emanuel told me that he had been a member of the Irgun and had served under Menachem Begin. He told me that he had never met Begin and had not smuggled weapons into Palestine, other news reports notwithstanding.

Naftali Bendavid (not a local reporter) with The Chicago Tribune spent 18 months working with Rahm Emanuel to prepare a story for the week after the mid-term elections although Naftali did not think that there was enough room in the 9-page story to mention the salient fact that Dr. Benjamin Emanuel had been a member of the terrorist organization – the Irgun.

No. In 9 pages of Bendavid's fluff piece there was simply no room to mention the ugly fact that Rahm's father had been a member of a terrorist organization.

Naftali Bendavid (clearly of Israeli persuasion) wrote a 9-page cover story for last Sunday's paper, which took up the entire second section of the now-failing Chicago Tribune. (The latest rumor in Chicago is that the indicted but not convicted Zionist criminal Maurice Greenberg may buy the Tribune.)

(This is the same paper that actually hired an outside writer from TIME magazine to co-author a short piece in order to properly smear me and misrepresent the story of my brutal arrest at the hands of Homeland Security goons last August.)

Naftali, at his office in Washington, knew all about Irgun when I spoke with him on the phone. When I said it was an egregious omission to leave out the fact that Rahm's father had been in the Irgun, he said he just couldn't figure how to squeeze that bit into a 9-page article.

Naftali, let me help, as English is my mother tongue: "Rahm Emanuel's father Benjamin was a member of the Irgun, a Zionist terrorist group that operated in Palestine from 1931 to 1948. The Irgun blew up buildings and killed hundreds of innocent people in order to achieve the goals of militant Zionism in occupied Palestine."

Rahm's mother is Martha Smulevitz, who married the Israeli doctor in August 1955. Ben told me that they met in Chicago. I asked if she was related to the Smulevitz family that was living in Palestine in the 1930s. He said no.

There are Smulevitz's and Shmuelevitz's all throughout the Zionist invasion of Palestine. One was hanged by the Brits, one dealt with the Nazis in Berlin, and another was the chief of staff for Menachem Begin – take your pick.

It would, however, be most interesting if Rahm's mother were actually related to Moshe Smulevitz, the Zionist who went to Berlin with Pino Ginzburg to arrange the transfer of Jews and money to Palestine – with the Nazi regime.

And you wonder where Rahm Emanuel got his "chutzpah" from?

"I said before the election that if the Democrats win the House, the lion's share of the credit should go to Rahm," says Rep. Ray LaHood, an Illinois Republican. "He legitimately can be called the golden boy of the Democratic Party today. He recruited the right candidates, found the money and funded them, and provided issues for them. Rahm did what no one else could do in seven cycles."

And the fact that more than 70 percent of the American population is opposed to wasting U.S. blood and treasure to fight a Zionist war in Iraq means nothing?

Rahm Emanuel’s younger brother, Ari Emanuel, is Michael Moore’s agent in Hollywood.

He encouraged this latter to point out the supposed responsibility of Saudi Arabia in September 11 attacks in his famous film Fahrenheit 911, the showing of which was ensured by the Democratic Party.

NAFTA

In the same way, the U.S. administration of President Bill Clinton was very much dominated and controlled by Zionist advisors like the Israeli Rahm Emanuel, who dominated the Clinton White House. Emanuel, the son of an Irgun terrorist, was the person who is reported to have "single-handedly" pushed NAFTA through. He now controls the agenda of the Democratic Party and has a great deal of influence over the party's presidential candidate, Barack Obama.

AIPAC

Right after Barack Obama's speech to AIPAC this morning he was endorsed by Rahm Emanuel, a leading member of the House.

(The Illinois congressman has largely stayed out of the election because he is a friend of Obama's and also has close ties to the Clintons.)

Emanuel, who belongs to an Orthodox Jewish congregation in Chicago, then accompanied Obama to a meeting with AIPAC's executive board, Mark Halperin reports.

Emanuel Pushed Hard for the Bailout
(earning praise from head bitch traitor Pelosi)

Between his White House and congressional years, Emanuel made a small fortune in investment banking and sat on the board of housing finance giant Freddie Mac, which the government seized in September along with Fannie Mae. (He recuses himself from any House votes pertaining to Freddie.) Workers in the securities and investment fields have donated more than $1.5 million to his four House campaigns, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

When the crisis intensified late last month and administration officials urged Congress to act, Emanuel pushed for a massive response to calm markets and the public. He took a lead role, along with Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), in negotiations with the White House and Republican leaders, and he convened six caucus meetings in the span of a few days to explain the issue to fellow Democrats.

Emanuel worked past midnight Saturday trying to win votes from both sides of the aisle, earning praise from Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on the House floor.

After the House rejected the package, Emanuel needed more time to negotiate, and he asked his rabbi for permission to work on Rosh Hashanah to help resolve the crisis.

As Emanuel recounts it, the rabbi assented, noting that there is an exception to many religious rules if the health and welfare of the nation is at stake. Emanuel teased him, "Does that mean you have a 401(k)?"

The rabbi answered, "I'm only thinking of the nation."

Green candidate Alan Augestson speaks on Emanuel


The incumbent in my district, Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL-05), received over $800,000 in contributions in 2007-2008 from securities and investment firms, insurance companies and commercial banks. Rep. Emanuel has always been an entirely client-oriented politician; his latest outrage merely makes obvious who his real constituents are.

Our government continues to shed, bit by bit, its last pretenses of public service, and we are less free, less prosperous, less safe and less respected every day for it. If the people fail to effect real change in November, their opportunity to do so ever again may be lost. They will be too caught up in the struggle for survival to care any longer about freedom, justice or peace.
