Is There Fake Video Footage in The 9/11 TV Coverage?

Published

on

url-1Before I begin, I would just like to say that I mean no disrespect to any of the victims, families, and all those affected by the terrible events of 9/11. My intention has always been to find out the truth about what really happened, how, and, if possible, why. It is one of the most defining days in modern history and many of us remember it as if it were yesterday. I was 12 when it occurred and could not grasp the significance and impact that it would have on my life at the time. More than 5 years later, after watching a 9/11 documentary that raised several valid questions about the legitimacy of the official story, I began to research this event more thoroughly. This spawned my own awakening, as I realized that if the government and media could lie about an event so huge, there were probably many other things that were deliberately falsified and covered up. I still cannot say with certainty what happened that day, but by going through the following evidence, it is important to look at it as a possibility.

While the controlled demolition of the 3 WTC towers has been extensively covered and documented, [1] I would like to bring our attention to the 9/11 media coverage that was shown to us that day and following it. For the overwhelming majority of us, we watched the days events unfold on TV, and our perceptions and beliefs about this event are greatly affected by what we saw that day. More than 11 years later, we have now seen videos of planes hitting the WTC possibly hundreds of times in a highly dramatic and realistic fashion, so our collective belief that planes hit the towers runs deep.

But what if what we saw on TV is not what actually happened? Is it possible that the TV footage was manipulated to make it look like the Twin Towers were hit by planes? Could image-layering, computer-generated imagery, and other professional editing techniques have been employed to create this illusion? What if the towers were really hit by cruise missiles or drone planes instead? While this may sound far-fetched at first, reviewing the footage again for yourself in this pivotal video will reveal to you that this is almost certainly the case.

September Clues is a documentary by video/audio engineer Simon Shack that thoroughly examines the 9/11 television coverage from all major media outlets, including the “amateur footage” released afterwards. Using in-depth comparative analysis of both video and audio of the most pertinent footage, the film conclusively demonstrates that the footage of the planes is not authentic and was actually fabricated. The planes are nothing more than digital superimpositions complete with sound effects and an attempt at “movie-like” realism. The so-called “amateur footage” released afterwards are digital forgeries made by media and video professionals which are supposed to convince us that a real variety of genuine footage exists of this event.  This is something that really must be seen and felt for yourself to be truly understood.

“When criminals have unlimited access to instruments of mass persuasion, solid proof of their crimes are hard to expose.  On September 11, 2001, almost all pieces of evidence were quickly removed.  In fact, all but ONE.  It is spread all over America on tapes recorded by American families and verifiable on official TV archives: the 9/11 Television Coverage.” – Simon Shack, creator of September Clues.

Flight175By watching just the first 5-10 minutes (Part A) of this video, you will begin to notice some disturbing trends that continue to present themselves throughout the TV coverage. For example, you will see the infamous “nose in-nose out” shot, where the plane is shown to emerge through the other side of the building with its nose perfectly intact.  Immediately after this occurs, the picture is blacked out in an attempt to hide this digital mistake. This was one of the first shots of the second plane hitting the tower from FOX’s Chopper 8, although it was not given virtually any attention afterwards for obvious reasons.  All the other live angles are covered, including the coverage shown internationally.

Here are just a few of many disturbing anomalies including:

* In the CNN footage, the news anchors do not even mention seeing a plane after it was first shown quickly crashing into the second tower at 9:03 AM.

* 17 of the “firsthand witnesses” who claimed to see the first and second planes worked directly for news media or are the spouses of media employees.  September Clues covers this revealing phenomenon in detail.

* Reporter Don Dahler of ABC reports hearing a missile and “not an airplane”, while Dick Oliver of FOX reports that several witnesses “thought they saw a missile.”  They are both quickly corrected by the news anchors and this idea is never given airtime again.

* The vast majority of civilian witnesses report seeing a “small plane” and there does not seem to be any kind of consensus as to what type, size, or color it actually was.

* Depending on the footage, different flight paths are shown, which is highly contradictory.  One angle shows the plane dive-bombing into the tower, which is an impossible maneuver for a Boeing 767 that is claimed to have been approaching at 590 MPH near sea level.

* There appears to be a 17-second delay between the actual attacks and the screening of the footage, and all major news networks had some kind of audible “trigger” which occurred precisely 17 seconds before the explosions in the second tower occurred.

* The audio is faked and varies widely depending on which clip you see, particularly in the “amateur footage.”  For example, one sample of a woman screaming is found both on the amateur film and TV coverage in an identical match.

* Several “slips of the tongue” occur regarding missiles throughout the day and later on: from CNN anchor Vince Cellini, Donald Rumsfeld, and 9/11 Commission member Tim Roemer, who mentions a missile hitting the Pentagon before quickly correcting himself.

* Many more technical issues regarding the footage, including the backgrounds used actually being digital composites, as well as the use of actors to provide false testimonials about “what they saw” following the event.

agmmissile

The usage of missiles on 9/11 is actually not such a hard phenomenon to comprehend. Shack believes JASSM AGM-158 cruise missiles could have been used, which look eerily like a plane indeed. [2] Logically, it makes far more sense than the official story of 19 Arab hijackers being able to foil the most advanced air defence systems on the planet — 4 times in one day. It would be much more feasible to simulate or falsify the appearance of planes crashing into the towers digitally than actually having it happen.  After all, why do we believe that planes hit the towers in the first place? Because we saw them on TV or on some kind of digital medium at some point, over and over again until it sank in as being real.  It is quite possibly the biggest lie and psychological warfare operation in modern human history, being a truly collective event that has had such a profound impact on the direction we have taken globally over the last decade.

Regarding the Pentagon, it is well known that a Boeing 767 cannot fit into a 16-foot wide hole that pierced through all five layers of the building. The hole is nowhere near big enough and there are no plane pieces near the crash site. Even CNN’s initial reporter on the scene Jamie McIntyre states (at 18:36) that there is “no evidence of a plane having crashed anywhere near the Pentagon.” Therefore, it is much more plausible and likely that a missile was used in this case, and most likely with the Twin Towers as well. Of course, the government later claimed to have identified all the bodies of the victims on these non-existent planes.  This alone raises massive implications about the simulation of victim deaths which must be considered. The wreckage in Shanksville, PA is similar, with nothing more than a large crater in the ground with not a single piece of plane debris in sight. Again, all the victims were “confirmed and identified.” Are we really expected to believe that planes crashed here? This defies all logic and physics.

While it may be hard to accept at first, it is almost certain that no commercial airplanes were involved in the attacks of 9/11. The “highly-realistic” image we have of a plane crashing into the towers is nothing more than cartoon physics when you really look at it.  The clear absence of a plane can be seen in this short unedited video clip that gives you an idea of what really happened.

HEZ15It is difficult to accept because many of us cannot fathom the implication that specific elements of the media and government would actually go to such lengths to stage an operation like this. My response to that is that they can and they will continue to. By studying the underlying agenda of the power elite and those who manage societies, 9/11 was most certainly a pivotal event to advance their agenda and vastly expedite their processes of increasing wars and restricting liberties across the globe.  It is likely that the operation itself was highly compartmentalized, where everyone participating was informed strictly in a “need-to-know” capacity only.  It is probable that only as many people as needed were used (my guess is less than 100), with the threats and reinforcements of murder, bribery, blackmail, and coercion being implemented to ensure silence among those who really know what happened.

Untold amounts of death, misery, and suffering continues to occur worldwide as a direct result of the 9/11 attacks.  Therefore, it is imperative that we remember that the main weapon used on that day was the *television* — not the fanatical acts of 19 Arab hijackers (many of whom are still reportedly alive). [3] All it takes to simulate and falsify the plane crashing into the building is some video-editing skills.   Watch how easily it can be done.

This is the real 9/11 truth. What the vast majority of all 9/11 truth documentaries and researchers don’t cover is the television fakery that was used to sell this version of events to the world.  In fact, it is likely that some of the most popular 9/11 documentaries like Loose Change are actually covertly-funded controlled opposition [4] that deliberately spread the false idea that planes hit the towers, meanwhile covering other anomalies such as the Pentagon missile and controlled demolition of the three buildings with seeming veracity. Several of these groups have actually banned the discussion of “no-plane theories” outright, refusing to even consider that media fakery has been used in any way. This is highly revealing of the integrity of some of the influential figures and leaders in the “truth movements,” which often have underlying agendas that are not so readily perceivable upon first glance.

It is not widely known that the use of all electronics was severely disrupted in New York City on the morning of 9/11. Many clocks in the city stopped working precisely at 8:45AM. Cell phones, video cameras, NYFD firefighter radios, the WTC internal communication system, and the Port Authority’s equipment were all either malfunctioning or blacked out entirely. [5] The possibility of directed EMP/HERF energy currents being used as a means to maintain total visual control of the scene must be considered in this case. This would be done to ensure that genuine footage of what actually happened to the towers is minimized or prevented entirely from emerging publicly.

FLIPapostol_faustino_smallFLIPcirri_robert_small

Another highly disturbing trend that Shack has uncovered in his research involves the photo forgery regarding the 9/11 victims. By visiting the official 9/11 memorial websites, it has been shown that a large amount of victims have had their photos duplicated and edited to appear as distinctly unique images. [6] The reason for these digital forgeries is unknown but reveals the possibility that computer-assisted false identities may have been used to simulate some of the victim deaths. Additionally, there are huge discrepancies in the death tolls among the memorials, ranging in a difference of several hundred people. This raises the important implication that 3000 people may not have actually been killed on 9/11, whereas the actual number is most likely far, far less. Please watch the following video to see this for yourself.

 Potential Fake Photos of Victims – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoZEuj1VPv0

I am almost certain that if we were shown the 9/11 TV coverage again today as it was played out in 2001 on live TV, we would have no doubt that those planes were faked.  Back then, we were not used to such widespread exposure to highly dramatic and ultra-realistic footage that is so common now in movies and TV shows. Our perceptions have now changed drastically, but the majority of us still believe that planes hit the towers. I encourage you to watch September Clues or to visit the official 9/11 TV archive [7] and verify this critical issue for yourself.

If fabricated television and video footage can fool almost the entire world, then what else are we being lied to about? This is something worth considering as we continue to awaken and perceive major world events with more clarity and objectivity than ever before. While it is not known exactly what transpired on 9/11, the truth about what did NOT happen is becoming clearer and clearer by the day. We must understand that television is still being used as a weapon of mass distraction to keep us thinking and conforming within acceptable bounds of consciousness. It’s time to turn it off and to reclaim our minds and critical thinking capacities to their fullest extent!

As we continue to empower ourselves with our own ever-evolving truths and understandings about the world, keeping an open and discerning mind when confronted with new and challenging information remains vital. When we see things for what they really are, we can begin to detach from all the drama and get back to the root issues at hand, such as the knowing that peace and a sustainable paradigm are not possible when war is used as a means to “solve conflicts.”  Only by addressing our most pressing issues at their core can we begin to see tangible, positive change finally emerge on a personal, communal, and global scale.

For more information, I highly recommend a visit to SeptemberClues.info to read important articles about what may have really happened on 9/11, including:

* Deconstructing 9/11

* Who Did 9/11?

* The Memorial Scams

* Obstacles to the Truth

* FAQ: what about the planes and passengers?

FAQ: The eyewitnesses?

FAQ: All the other video footage?

Thank you for reading this far and for giving this important issue your consideration. I believe it to be vital in our collective awakening process. May all the victims and those affected by this tragic event be forever blessed and remembered. Your service to humanity and all of life will not be forgotten! May the truth be revealed for all to know and see.

Sincerely and with love,
Eliot

Update regarding the planes and passengers:

To explain what has happened to the planes and the passengers, research and investigation has been conducted using the available and relevant official data. However, the results are not what you may think. There are no records of AA Flights 11 and 77 ever existing. As of 2005, United Flight 93 and 175 were both still listed as valid and operational aircraft in the FAA registry. Therefore, it is far more likely that many of the ‘victims’ themselves never existed, with their deaths most certainly being simulated primarily through digital means. While it is hard to swallow at first, please keep an open mind when reading these responses and articles. The bottom line is that we’re all after the truth here, no matter how ugly or unbelievable it may appear at first.

I will cite Simon Shack’s answers to these questions, for his research far outweighs mine in this area:

ALLEGED FLIGHTS

The 4 purported hijacked flights have grave problems as far as their authenticity is concerned: A long list of documentation (or plain lack of it) reveals inconsistent NTSB, BTS and FAA data. The 2 American Airlines flights lacked records of required airport log data such as taxi-off and wheels-off times. The 2 United Airlines flights were not deregistered until October 2005, as of official FAA records. Both should have been listed, by law, as ‘destroyed’. Shortly thereafter, the FAA rectified this ‘oversight’ in a peculiar manner : in place of ‘destroyed’, the wording used was ‘cancelled’. This evidence has not been challenged, to this day, by any of those air-regulating agencies nor by the airlines themselves.

ALLEGED PASSENGERS

Since no evidence has been forthcoming of the very existence of the 4 ‘hijacked’ airplanes, the question of the passengers allegedly on board of them should be moot. However, multiple and repeated people-searches have attempted to backtrack and contact the alleged families of those passengers – to no avail. Thus, the prevailing indications of those longstanding investigations suggest that none of these people have ever existed. Moreover, the stories created around the alleged passengers simply do not stand up to scrutiny. As for the cell phone calls that they allegedly placed to their loved ones, they have by now been established as a technical impossibility.”

Multiple Investigations Reveal Secrets About Where US Tax Dollars Are Really Going

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Multiple investigations and testimony from high ranking sources have discovered that trillions of dollars of our tax dollars are going towards programs that not even the highest ranking people within government know about.

  • Reflect On:

    Why are we made to believe our taxes dollars are going towards necessary services that favour the population? Why do we so easily trust our government and take their word for it when evidence says otherwise.

It’s amazing how much money is scraped off of each paycheque, and how much money multiple small and big businesses pay. We are told that it’s necessary, that this is the money going towards various programs that are responsible for building our schools, employing people for necessary services and infrastructure, among many other things. It’s truly amazing how much money governments rake in from taxes.

It’s an astronomical amount that makes it hard to see how all of the money is allocated to services that are in the people’s favour, instead of the possibility of it going into the pockets of certain politicians and elitists, among other places. Yet we are heavily taxed, and reasons for taxation are constantly brought up and justified, almost as if to imply that there really is no other way of changing things and doing things differently here on planet Earth. Our potential is huge, yet we are convinced that money and taxation are our only ways to operate.

Sure, some of our taxes are going toward various needs and services we deem necessary, but how much off of our paycheques is really required for this? Judging by the amount of money that has been poured into black budget programs, it doesn’t seem like much is needed at all, and this is because trillions upon trillions of our tax dollars are actually going towards projects that the public has absolutely no idea about.

These projects are known as ‘black budget programs,’ which include Special Access Programs (SAPs). Within these we have unacknowledged and waived SAPs. These programs do not exist publicly, but they do indeed exist. They are better known as ‘deep black programs.’ A 1997 US Senate report described them as “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.”

Not many people have investigated the black budget world, but The Washington Post revealed that the “black-budget” documents indicate that a staggering 52.6 billion dollars was set aside for operations in fiscal year 2013.(source) More recent investigations, however, reveal a lot more than that.  The topic was discussed in 2010 by Washington Post journalists Dana Priest and William Arkin. Their investigation lasted approximately two years and concluded that America’s classified world has:

Become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how many agencies do the same work. (source)

Recently, Arkin quite NBC/MSNBC  and went public outing them as completely fake government run agencies. You can read more about that hereHere is another article we published that has links within it to documents showing the close relationship between mainstream media, academia, and the CIA.

The most recent investigation was conducted by economist and Michigan State professor Mark Skidmore, alongside some of his graduate students as well as Catherine Austin Fitts, former assistant secretary of Housing and Urban Development. They discovered trillions of unaccounted for dollars missing from the Department of Housing & Urban Development as well as the Department of Defense. For their research, the team used several government websites and made inquiries to multiple U.S. agencies. Much of the time they received no response and the Office of the Inspector General even disabled links to all key documents that revealed unsupported spending, according to the team.

Given the Army’s $122 billion budget, that meant unsupported adjustments were 54 times spending authorized by Congress. Typically, such adjustments in public budgets are only a small fraction of authorized spending… Skidmore thought Fitts had made a mistake. “Maybe she meant $6.5 billion and not $6.5 trillion,” he said. “So I found the report myself and sure enough it was $6.5 trillion.” – Michigan State News.

They went on to find documents indicating a total of $20 trillion worth of undocumented adjustments made from 1998 t0 2015. Our tax dollars are going directly into these black budget programs, which often cost far more than our roads and services. If this information was made transparent and public for discovery and use, it would leap all of humanity into the stars and into new discovery and exploration. The implications would be huge, and it would force us to ask more questions.

Here’s a great quote from Paul Hellyer.

It is ironic that the U.S. would begin a devastating war, allegedly in search of weapons of mass destruction when the most worrisome developments in this field are occurring in your own backyard.  It is ironic that the U.S. should be fighting monstrously expensive wars  allegedly to bring democracy to those countries, when it itself can no longer claim to be called a democracy when trillions, and I mean thousands of billions of dollars have been spent on projects which both congress and the commander in chief know nothing about. (source)

What’s even more interesting is that Fitts has been quite outspoken about a secret space program and where this missing money is actually going. She explains how enormous amounts of resources were handed over to covert operations to develop a security system of finance. This then created the CIA and a select group of people who were in charge of UFO technology. “By the time JFK came into office ready to challenge this shadow government and make space program the centrepiece of his administration, the civil war between the Deep State and the public state was in full force.” (source)

Interesting to say the least.

Deeper Black Budget Discussion On CETV

CETV is a platform we created in order to combat censorship and demonetization we have been facing over the past few years. On episode 4 of The Collective Evolution Show on CETV, we discussed the Black Budget in much deeper detail. Below is a clip exploring the validity behind missing money from the black budget and special access programs, explaining where the money is going and what exactly it’s being used to do.

You can become a member of CETV, get access to the full show and many others, and support conscious media here.

The Takeaway

The takeaway here is to really question what’s going on with our tax dollars. Whose pockets is the majority of money going into, and for what purpose? What are we really paying for? Secret space programs? Deep underground and under ocean military bases?  Have we just been made to believe that the way we are taxed is absolutely necessary? What is really going on here and how come nobody is questioning it?

Investigation Shows The MMR Vaccine Was Approved Based On Small Studies Showing Disturbing Results

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A FOIA request by Del Bigtree reveals that the 8 studies supporting the release of the MMR vaccine were only 6 weeks long, used only 800 children, and led to damaging respiratory and gastrointestinal illnesses to many of the children.

  • Reflect On:

    Are we ready to collectively deal with the implications of ongoing revelations of industry malfeasance with regards to vaccines that for some may require a shift in long-held beliefs?

Amidst a rash of efforts to bring forward mandatory vaccination in pockets of the United States is the recent move in New York City to declare a public health emergency Tuesday over a measles outbreak and order mandatory vaccinations in one neighborhood for people who may have been exposed to the virus.

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the unusual order to address what he said was a measles “crisis” in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg section, where more than 250 people have gotten measles since September. The order applies to anyone living, working or going to school in four zip codes in the neighborhood. The declaration requires all unvaccinated people who may have been exposed to the virus to get the vaccine, including children over 6 months old. People who ignore the order could be fined $1,000.

Challenging Assumptions

This kind of invasive move gives rise to several serious questions, including challenging many of the assumptions that are necessarily made to justify such a move.

Assumption #1: People who may have been infected with the measles should get vaccinated immediately. De Blasio wants people who may have been infected with the measles to get vaccinated. The assumption here is that the vaccine would actually help someone who has the virus by preventing them from getting the measles or preventing them from spreading it to others. But this just doesn’t stand to reason. If someone is already infected, getting a measles vaccine will not prevent the outbreak. That’s not what a vaccine is designed for. And while the person is going through the 2-week period it takes for the vaccine to take hold, it’s quite possible that this will weaken the immune response to the actual measles infection the person has. Quarantining people suspected of being infected would be the sensible response, not vaccinating. If they happen to have the measles, no problem. Once they recover they will then be immune for life.

Assumption #2: The MMR Vaccine Can Create Herd Immunity. There is an article in the Huffington post entitled ‘I’m No Anti-Vaxxer, But the Measles Vaccine Can’t Prevent Outbreaks,’ in which Dr. Gregory Poland, who strongly advocates for vaccines, notes that outbreaks are often initiated and spread by people who have been fully vaccinated against the measles–over 50% in the case of a 2011 outbreak in Quebec. How is this possible? While this Quebec outbreak happened within a community that supposedly had achieved herd-immunity status of over 95% vaccinated, the facts are, as the article notes, that “9 per cent of children having two doses of the vaccine, as public health authorities now recommend, will have lost their immunity after just seven and a half years. As more time passes, more lose their immunity.” Therefore, herd immunity for measles is simply impossible to achieve with this vaccine.

Assumption #3: The MMR Vaccine, in de Blasio’s words, is ‘safe, effective, and life-saving.’ The claim that the MMR vaccine is ‘life-saving’ does not stand up to simple statistics, as we detail in our article ‘Statistics Show The MMR Vaccine Kills More People Than The Measles Does.’ Whether it is effective, we have already seen that it is incapable of creating herd immunity, wanes over time, does not work at all for some people, and in some of the latest outbreaks the majority of people infected were fully vaccinated. Is it safe? This is the important question we cover in the next section.

The Studies That Stand Behind The Approval Of the MMR Vaccine

The pharmaceutical industry, as well as governmental regulatory bodies like the CDC and the FDA, assure the public that they take the safety of vaccines seriously, and that there is irrefutable science behind the notion that vaccines are safe in terms of the studies that their approval is based on.

However, a Freedom of Information Act request by Del Bigtree has revealed absolutely startling information about the studies that supported the approval of the MMR vaccines that have been injected into our children. To begin with, only 8 studies were conducted and the total combined number of children participating in the studies was only a little over 800! Furthermore, the studies only recorded symptoms for the first 6 weeks after the vaccines were given, unlike many other drug studies that follow symptoms for 5 years or more. And finally, the study revealed serious side-effects in those receiving the vaccine, including a highly significant number of participants who suffered upper respiratory illness and gastrointestinal illness, which has been linked to autism.

In our latest episode of The Collective Evolution Show on CETV, Joe, Arjun and I discussed New York’s mandatory vaccination order as well as Del Bigtree’s analysis of the MMR studies he received and the reason that Big Pharma not only does not want to do proper, large-scale studies on the safety of vaccines, but they also want to try to prevent other researchers like Dr. Christopher Exley from doing so as well.

You can watch the full episode of The Collective Evolution Show where we talk about this subject in more detail here.

You can go here to see the full episode of ‘The Highwire’ where Del Bigtree breaks down the MMR studies in question.

The Takeaway

The veils of illusion that have been masking the truth are lifting as our consciousness awakens. Transparency is coming, though how long it takes will depend on our continued efforts to dig for and spread the truth far and wide.

Leaked Wikileaks Doc Reveals US Military Use of IMF, World Bank As “Unconventional” Weapons

Published

on

Buenos Aires, Argentina, May 14, 2018. Natacha Pisarenko | AP

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In light of recent events in Venezuela Wikileaks published a revealing document that highlights the fact that financial institutions are not independent, that they are owned by, and in turn own/work together with the US government to fulfill agendas.

  • Reflect On:

    The secrecy in our world runs rampant, under the guise of 'national security' when it's really because secrets need to be kept to avoid the population waking up to the tremendous amount of unethical corruption that plagues our geopolitical world.

As most of you reading this will know, Julian Assange was recently dragged out of the Ecuadorian Embassy. Assange has long been subjected to ridicule and character assassination by the Deep State owned mainstream media, and for one reason, it’s the same reason they’ve been wanting to snatch him up for so long.

It’s because for years he has been sharing information that the global elite around the world did not want him to share. He’s been publishing information that threatens various elitist, corporate, and political interests around the globe as well as information showing just how much the public is deceived to, lied to, and manipulated in several different ways in order to justify actions that do not resonate with the majority of people on planet Earth.

Various media outlets have been silenced, censored, and have and their revenue streams taken away, including us. This is why we created CETV, a platform to combat the censorship we are currently experiencing.

In Episode 5 of The Collective Evolution Show, we go deep into Assange’s arrest. The purpose was to explore the deeper details behind why Assange is a threat to power structures as opposed to being a COINTEL or psy-op as some are suggesting. We understand this position, and duke it out on our episode of The CE Show, but there are areas we must discuss with this.

I also recently published an article about his arrest, and the truth behind his arrest: What Julian Assange’s Arrest Tells Us About Our World.  We’ve published many Wikileak leaks as well, the latest one being a document exposing a “Secret Us Base on the Moon.”

I recently came across an article published on MintPress NewsIt was written by Whitney Webb is, who is a staff writer for MintPress News and has contributed to several other independent, alternative outlets. Her work has appeared on sites such as Global Research, the Ron Paul Institute and 21st Century Wire among others. She also makes guest appearances to discuss politics on radio and television. She currently lives with her family in southern Chile.

In her article, she references a leaked military manual on “unconventional warfare” that was recently highlighted by WikiLeaks. The U.S. Army states that major global financial institutions — such as the World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) — are used as unconventional, financial “weapons in times of conflict up to and including large-scale general war,” as well as in leveraging “the policies and cooperation of state governments.”

She put it so well below that we have posted it below:

The document, officially titled “Field Manual (FM) 3-05.130, Army Special Operations Forces Unconventional Warfare” and originally written in September 2008, was recently highlighted by WikiLeaks on Twitter in light of recent events in Venezuela as well as the years-long, U.S.-led economic siege of that country through sanctions and other means of economic warfare. Though the document has generated new interest in recent days, it had originally been released by WikiLeaks in December 2008 and has been described as the military’s “regime change handbook.”

WikiLeaks’ recent tweets on the subject drew attention to a single section of the 248-page-long document, titled “Financial Instrument of U.S. National Power and Unconventional Warfare.” This section in particular notes that the U.S. government applies “unilateral and indirect financial power through persuasive influence to international and domestic financial institutions regarding availability and terms of loans, grants, or other financial assistance to foreign state and nonstate actors,” and specifically names the World Bank, IMF and The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), as well as the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), as “U.S. diplomatic-financial venues to accomplish” such goals.

The manual also touts the “state manipulation of tax and interest rates” along with other “legal and bureaucratic measures” to “open, modify or close financial flows” and further states that the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) – which oversees U.S. sanctions on other nations, like Venezuela — “has a long history of conducting economic warfare valuable to any ARSOF [Army Special Operations Forces] UW [Unconventional Warfare] campaign.”

This section of the manual goes on to note that these financial weapons can be used by the U.S. military to create “financial incentives or disincentives to persuade adversaries, allies and surrogates to modify their behavior at the theater strategic, operational, and tactical levels” and that such unconventional warfare campaigns are highly coordinated with the State Department and the Intelligence Community in determining “which elements of the human terrain in UWOA [Unconventional Warfare Operations Area] are most susceptible to financial engagement.”

The role of these “independent” international financial institutions as extensions of U.S. imperial power is elaborated elsewhere in the manual and several of these institutions are described in detail in an appendix to the manual titled “The Financial Instrument of National Power.” Notably, the World Bank and the IMF are listed as both Financial Instruments and Diplomatic Instruments of U.S. National Power as well as integral parts of what the manual calls the “current global governance system.”

Furthermore, the manual states that the U.S. military “understand[s] that properly integrated manipulation of economic power can and should be a component of UW,” meaning that these weapons are a regular feature of unconventional warfare campaigns waged by the United States.

Another point of interest is that these financial weapons are largely governed by the National Security Council (NSC), which is currently headed by John Bolton. The document notes that the NSC “has primary responsibility for the integration of the economic and military instruments of national power abroad.”

“Independent” but controlled

Though the unconventional warfare manual is notable for stating so openly that “independent” financial institutions like the World Bank and the IMF are essentially extensions of U.S. government power, analysts have noted for decades that these institutions have consistently pushed U.S. geopolitical goals abroad.

Indeed, the myth of World Bank and IMF “independence” is quickly eroded by merely looking at the structure and funding of each institution. In the case of the World Bank, the institution is located in Washington and the organization’s president has always been a U.S. citizen chosen directly by the president of the United States. In the World Bank’s entire history, the institution’s Board of Governors has never rejected Washington’s pick.

This past Monday, it was reported that President Donald Trump nominated former Bear Stearns economist David Malpass to lead the World Bank. Malpass had famously failed to foresee the destruction of his former employer during the 2008 financial crisis and is likely to limit World Bank loans to China and to countries allied or allying with China, given his well-established reputation as a China hawk.

In addition to choosing its president, the U.S. is also the bank’s largest shareholder, making it the only member nation to have veto rights. Indeed, as the leaked unconventional warfare manual notes, “As major decisions require an 85% supermajority, the United States can block any major changes” to World Bank policy or the services it offers. Furthermore, the U.S. Treasury Secretary, former Goldman Sachs banker and “foreclosure king,” Steve Mnuchin, functions as the World Bank’s governor.

Though the IMF is different from the World Bank in several respects, such as its stated mission and focus, it too is largely dominated by U.S. government influence and funding. For instance, the IMF is also based in Washington and the U.S. is the company’s largest shareholder — the largest by far, owning 17.46 percent of the institution – and also pays the largest quota for the institution’s maintenance, paying $164 billion in IMF financial commitments annually. Though the U.S. does not choose the IMF’s top executive, it uses its privileged position as the institution’s largest funder to control IMF policy by threatening to withhold its IMF funding if the institution does not abide by Washington’s demands.

As a consequence of the lopsided influence of the U.S. on these institutions’ behavior, these organizations have used their loans and grants to “trap” nations in debt and have imposed “structural adjustment” programs on these debt-saddled governments that result in the mass privatization of state assets, deregulation, and austerity that routinely benefit foreign corporations over local economies. Frequently, these very institutions – by pressuring countries to deregulate their financial sector and through corrupt dealings with state actors – bring about the very economic problems that they then swoop in to “fix.”

Guaidó hits up IMF

Given the close relationship between the U.S. government and these international financial institutions, it should come as little surprise that – in Venezuela – the U.S.-backed “interim president” Juan Guaidó – has already requested IMF funds, and thus IMF-controlled debt, to fund his parallel government.

This is highly significant because it shows that top among Guaidó’s objectives, in addition to privatizing Venezuela’s massive oil reserves, is to again shackle the country to the U.S.-controlled debt machine.

As the Grayzone Project recently noted:

Venezuela’s previous elected socialist president, Hugo Chávez, broke ties with the IMF and World Bank, which he noted were “dominated by US imperialism.” Instead Venezuela and other left-wing governments in Latin America worked together to co-found the Bank of the South, as a counterbalance to the IMF and World Bank.

However, Venezuela is far from the only country in Latin America being targeted by these financial weapons masquerading as “independent” financial institutions. For instance, Ecuador – whose current president has sought to bring the country back into Washington’s good graces – has gone so far as to conduct an “audit” of its asylum of journalist and WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange in order to win a $10 billion bailout from the IMF. Ecuador granted Assange asylum in 2012 and the U.S. has fervently sought his extradition for still sealed charges ever since.

In addition, last July, the U.S. threatened Ecuador with “punishing trade measures” if it introduced a measure at the UN to support breastfeeding over infant formula, in a move that stunned the international community but laid bare the willingness of the U.S. government to use “economic weapons” against Latin American nations.

Beyond Ecuador, other recent targets of massive IMF and World Bank “warfare” include Argentina, which awarded the largest IMF bailout loan in history just last year. That loan package was, unsurprisingly, heavily pushed by the U.S., according to a statement from Treasury Secretary Mnuchin released last year. Notably, the IMF was instrumental in causing the complete collapse of the Argentinian economy in 2001, sending a poor omen for last year’s approval of the record loan package.

Though it was released over a decade ago, this “U.S. coup manual” recently highlighted by WikiLeaks serves as a salient reminder that the so-called “independence” of these financial institutions is an illusion and that they are among the many “financial weapons” regularly used by the U.S. government to bend countries to its will and even overthrow U.S.-disfavored governments.
