Legendary General Explains How Soldiers Are Not Fighting For Freedom

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The highest ranking marine and most decorated US solider at the time, Smedley Butler, told the truth about war in 1935 and how it's not what we really think it is. It's not about protection from harm, it's about big business and special interests.

  • Reflect On:

    Why do so many people believe that war is necessary, and that the military establishment is here to protect our freedom? Is it true, or is it simply propaganda to blind us from what's really going on?

War is not what most people think it is. We’re told that war is necessary, that soldiers are and have been overseas ‘fighting for our freedom’ and sacrificing their lives in order to keep our homeland safe. It’s a narrative that’s still pushed today and it’s backed by a massive propaganda campaign that beams patriotism into the hearts of the masses; meanwhile, very few people ever question what’s actually happening. We are made to believe that war and the entire military establishment are necessities, but they’re not. People have been sharing this opinion for a very long time, those of us who actually think for ourselves instead of simply believing everything that’s presented to us without ever questioning it. Take Mark Twain, for example, who explained the behaviour of the global elite to which I am referring to quite well:

The statesman will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them: and thus he will by and by convince himself the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception. (source)

Today, this represents so much more than an opinion. In order to keep patriotism flowing and money feeding into the military industrial complex, we are made to believe war is necessary. More people have become aware of what’s known as ‘false flag’ terrorism. One of the more recent examples of false-flag terrorism would be the supposed chemical gas attack in Syria. False-flag terrorism means that these acts were covertly carried out by one country (in this case it was the United States) and blamed on the home country (Syria), all for the purpose of justifying a specific goal (US military intervention). It’s important to keep in mind that these aren’t just beliefs, they’re facts that are backed by tremendous amounts of evidence, so much so that current presidential candidate and military veteran Tulsi Gabbard, who introduced the Stop Arming Terrorists Act, the terms of which her website outlines succinctly: “The legislation would prohibit the U.S. government from using American taxpayer dollars to provide funding, weapons, training, and intelligence support to groups like the Levant Front, Fursan al Ha and other allies of Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, al-Qaeda and ISIS, or to countries who are providing direct or indirect support to those same groups.”  Gabbard herself was quoted as saying that the “CIA has also been funneling weapons and money through Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar and others who provide direct and indirect support to groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda. This support has allowed al-Qaeda and their fellow terrorist organizations to establish strongholds throughout Syria, including in Aleppo.”

The idea that the latest gas attack in Syria was fabricated by the western military alliance in order to justify intervention in that country clearly outlines how ‘fake’ things are. These fake terrorist attacks, both home and abroad, are not only used to justify military action, but also to take away our rights here at home and justify surveillance and a heightened national security state. This article is not going to go into the Syria attacks, but I put more information in a recent article titled “BBC Producer Blows The Whistle & Admits The “Gas Attack” Footage From Syria “Was Staged.” 

Another example of false-flag terrorism would be 9/11, as all of the witness testimonies and published research suggest it was a controlled demolition, and many believe it was orchestrated by the US government.  

Think about that for a second: The same powers that claim to be protecting us from and fighting the ‘war on terror’ could be the same ones creating it.

This is why I wanted to share a portion of the work of Smedley Darlington Butler, a United States Marine Corps Major General, the highest rank authorized at that time, and at the time of his death the most decorated Marine in U.S. history.

What better person to hear it from than a source like this?

This is an excerpt from a speech delivered in 1933 by Major General Smedley Butler, USMC. I obtained these excerpts from Dr. Paul Craig Roberts. You can access General Butler’s entire speech here.

War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.

I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we’ll fight. The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag.

I wouldn’t go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket. There isn’t a trick in the racketeering bag that the military gang is blind to. It has its “finger men” to point out enemies, its “muscle men” to destroy enemies, its “brain men” to plan war preparations, and a “Big Boss” Super-Nationalistic-Capitalism.

It may seem odd for me, a military man to adopt such a comparison. Truthfulness compels me to. I spent thirty-three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country’s most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle-man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.

I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all the members of the military profession, I never had a thought of my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service.

I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912 (where have I heard that name before?). I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested. During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.

The Takeaway

There is intelligent manipulation of human consciousness on several different levels happening, all for the purpose of justifying the state’s actions within the minds of the masses. Who is responsible for this manipulation? It’s the “invisible government,” which has been referred to by countless presidents, politicians and academicians for decades. As the father of public relations Edward Bernay once said, this “invisible government” is the “true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.” (Propaganda, 1928)

The good news? The world is clearly waking up to these facts, so much so that the global elite has started censoring information. Youtube accounts have been demonetized and Facebook reach has been limited for those sharing this kind of information.

The stronghold the elite had over human consciousness was much greater just 10 years ago compared to what it is today. We are finally starting to see the truth. We’re starting to realize that the events taking place on our planet aren’t always presented accurately to us.

Our perception of the planet and what has been happening here is changing, and that’s a very encouraging thought.

The US Prosecutor Wants Prince Andrew To Speak With The FBI After Ghislaine Maxwell’s Arrest

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    U.S. attorney Audrey Strauss, who is involved in working Ghislane Maxwell's case, welcomes Prince Andrew's co-operation with the FBI.

  • Reflect On:

    Will Prince Andrew be the only high profile person to go down? Could this be a dam that breaks to truly has the majority of the population questioning the character of many people in positions of power? Will this spur conscious self-governance?

What Happened: Jeffrey Epstein’s right hand person, Ghislaine Maxwell was recently arrested on charges connected to Jeffrey Epstein with regards to child sex trafficking and abuse. Now, the acting U.S. attorney Audrey Strauss, said U.S. prosecutors would “welcome Prince Andrew coming in to talk to us” during a press conference announcing the charges against Maxwell on Thursday, as many media outlets are now reporting.

“We would like to have the benefit of his statement,” Strauss told reporters. Virginia Roberts Giuffre, a survivor of Epstein’s abuse, has claimed he and Maxwell trafficked her to have sex with Prince Andrew three times when she was 17 in 2001.

This isn’t the first time the Royal Family has been implicated in such activity. A member of the Royal family was claimed to be part of a suspected pedophile ring under investigation by the police in the late 1980s, a former Metropolitan police officer has said.  The officer was told by a detective sergeant that the investigation into the ring, which was also claimed to include an MP, was shut down for national security reasons. “I was in a car with two other vice squad officers … The detective sergeant said he had just had a major child abuse investigation shut down by the CPS regarding a royal and an MP,” he told the Sunday Mirror newspaper. “He did not mention names, but he said the CPS had said it was not in the public’s interest because it ‘could destabilise national security’.”

In fact, there are many examples from many different countries within Europe that correlate with elite level pedophilia and not only sexual abuse of children, but physical abuse as well as the murder of them. Multiple Royal Families have been implicated, as well as Vatican Personnel, high ranking global leaders, politicians and more.

This is not to say all are involved, but from the outside looking in, it seems a significant amount are.

If you want to dive deeper into the topic and see more examples, you can refer to this article I published a few months ago.

We have also interviewed a survivor of elite pedophile rings like the one Epstein and Maxwell ran. Her name is Anneke Lucas and you can watch her full testimony here on CETV.

You can also watch a recent documentary called Out of Shadows that explores this topic in detail on CETV as well.

If you want to read more about Epstein ad Maxwell, you can do that here.

Why This Is Important

Could Maxwell’s arrest bring down more high profile people? It could, and that’s why it’s important. With this, the collective would really see how far this goes and we would have the opportunity to ask ourselves why high profile people are involved, and why there is such a big cover up. Further, we could explore why we support these people making major decisions for the human race with regards to political policy that governs all aspects of life, from health, to education and more.

If politicians ad high profile individuals are in fact involved in this, which survivors of their rings commonly claim, we are giving our power over to people who are in a state where they lack empathy and connection, and are capable to doing thigs the general public would never dream of doing to others. This is why more people are starting to really explore this topic, because it changes how we go about giving our power to people like this.

The Takeaway

Humanity is in a process of ‘Breaking the Illusion’ we have come to accept about our reality. We have been living from a collective story that states we elect good people into government, and they act in our best interest. This categorically is not the case, and part of our collective awakening to creating solutions that can make our world thrive is waking up from this illusion we have chosen to accept.

People are beginning to learn en masse that high profile figures are involved in such acts like extreme occult rituals, sex trafficking and pedophilia, and they are beginning to wonder why.

Jeffrey Epstein & Ghislaine Maxwell Are Just The Tip of The Iceberg: This Goes Much Deeper

Published

on

What Happened: Jeffrey Epstein’s confidant, Ghislaine Maxwell, has been arrested and charged with conspiracy to persuade minors to travel and engage in sex acts as well as enticing and transporting a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts. Many of Epstein’s victims have mentioned Maxwell a number of times as Epstein’s right hand person. They have also stated that Maxwell has been involved in these sexual acts with minors along with Epstein.

She, as well as Epstein, attracted young girls by promising them money, fame, careers and more. In some cases they became very close with their victims, which has been seen as a form of brainwashing that has resulted in extreme trauma for many of their victims.

According to the BBC, Maxwell “assisted, facilitated, and contributed to Jeffrey Epstein’s abuse of minor girls by, among other things, helping Epstein to recruit, groom and ultimately abuse victims known to Maxwell and Epstein to be under the age of 18”.

How Deep This Really Goes: Epstein’s case goes beyond just the dealings involving Maxwell and himself, and the issue of trafficking very young children, and teenaged children, is much more widespread than Epstein. Epstein is being made out to simply be a rich billionaire with connections that allowed him to entice young women into his home to be sexually abused, but we really need to talk about just how widespread this type of abuse is among people who are made out to be idols, like multiple Vatican officials, politicians and celebrities.

There is reason to believe that Epstein’s his job was actually to entice powerful people within politics to have sex with young women and then ultimately entrap them, whether it’s with photographs or hidden cameras or thorugh other methods. For example, in an interview with Zev Shalev, former CBS News executive producer and award-winning investigative journalist for Narativ, the former senior executive for Israel’s Directorate of Military Intelligence, Ari Ben-Menashe, claimed not only to have met Jeffrey Epstein and his alleged madame Ghislaine Maxwell, back in the 1980s, but that both Epstein and Maxwell were already working with Israeli intelligence during that time period.

There are multiple allegations that Epstein was not only a pedophile involved in the trafficking of children, but actually an intelligence agent as well. This isn’t the only time “Defense” organizations have been implicated in this type of activity. In the recent past, multiple military personnel have been arrested, hundreds of Pentagon employees were found to be involved with child porn.

It’s also important to acknowledge that this isn’t the only example. Another great example would be the  NXIVM case, where multiple members were implicated in some shady activity. Billionaire Clare Bronfman was indicted on racketeering charges. These charges were connected to her role as “Operations Director” for NXIVM. Clare Bronfman is the daughter of Charles Bronfman, a Canadian/American businessman and philanthropist. A very powerful person.

Just like with the Epstein case, the Clinton’s are mentioned with regards to NXIVM as well.

The Rolling Stone reported:

“There are strange political connections as well. Mark Vicente, a documentary filmmaker and former high-ranking member of the group, testified at the trial of NXIVM head Keith Raniere that Clare Bronfman, the billionaire Seagram’s heiress and alleged benefactor of the organization, approached him and a few other members of the group to help her make a contribution to a Clinton campaign.” (source)

This kind of stuff is all over the place, and the theme involves high ranking people. As a paper published in European Psychiatry details:

Research eventually led to the Franklin scandal that broke in 1989 when hundreds of children were apparently flown around the US to be abused by high ranking ‘Establishment’ members. Former state senator John W DeCamp, cited as one of the most effective legislators in Nebraska history, is today attorney for two of the abuse victims. A 15 year old girl disclosed that she had been abused since the age of 9 and was exposed since the age of 9 and was exposed to ‘ritual murder’ of a new born girl, a small boy (who was subsequently fried and eaten) and three others.

There are many more examples that implicate the Royal Families of multiple countries, and many other shocking examples of elite level pedophile rings.

If you want to dive in a bit deeper into more research, I published an article a few months ago that goes a lot deeper.

To go down the rabbit hole even deeper on this, we have conducted an interview with a survivor of elite child sex trafficking/slavery. You can access the full interview and start your free trial HERE on CETV, a platform we created to help combat internet censorship and allow us to continue to do our work and get the word out about various issues and topics.

The Takeaway

There is so much evidence showing that the global financial elite (various members of upper tier politics, corporations, Hollywood, Royal Families, and people in positions of great power, the Vatican, etc.) are engaged in such behaviour, and quite a significant amount of them. This article doesn’t even represent the tip of the iceberg and the countless amounts of examples that are out there. This activity has been able to sustain itself because of the power people involved hold.

We are talking about people who have not only experienced a tremendous amount of trauma themselves most likely. So we have to ask ourselves, are you really surprised that our world economic and political systems are plagued with corruption? If these powerful people wanted to, they could come together, pool their resources and help the citizenry create a human experience where everybody thrives. Yet instead, we have a different experience, why? Why is their desire abuse and control? Why do we do the same in our individual lives at times?

Why do we keep participating?

If you watch our interview with Anneke Lucas, you will see how there is a very expansive and uplifting message that comes out of all of this, despite the disheartening subject matter. Human trafficking and child abuse represent the most untold stories of our generation, as they affect hundreds of thousands of people every year, many of them children. We are slowly coming to terms with the fact that this happens at elite levels, done by some of the most ‘prominent’ and powerful people. It’s time to talk about it, and it’s time to ask more questions. Let’s keep disclosure coming and continue to ask ourselves why were hand over our thoughts and power to people who are lacking morality, empathy, and have no desire to see the human race thrive.

Ghislaine Maxwell Arrested By FBI on Charges Connected To Jeffrey Epstein

Published

on

What Happened: Jeffrey Epstein’s confidant Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested this morning in New Hampshire according to FBI spokeswoman Adrienne Senatore. At this time, charges against Maxwell are sealed, and prosecutors have scheduled a midday press conference in New York to provide more details on the case.

Charges against Maxwell came almost a year after Epstein was arrested by FBI agents on July 6, 2019. Jeffrey Epstein allegedly killed himself in a federal jail in August 2019, although many believe he was killed given he could name many high profile figures connected to his ring.

Why It Matters: Maxwell is heavily connected to sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein who operated a sex/pedophile ring that tailored to high profile individuals, business people, entertainers and politicians.

Her arrest may be important in helping to bring down more people connected to the ring which include Hillary and Bill Clinton amongst other high profile names.

The Takeaway:

Humanity is in a process of ‘Breaking the Illusion’ we have come to accept about our reality. We have been living from a collective story that states we elect good people into government, and they act on our best interest. This categorically is not the case, and part of our collective awakening to creating solutions that can make our world thrive is waking up from this illusion we have chosen to accept.

People are beginning to learn en masse that high profile figures are involved in such acts like extreme occult rituals, sex trafficking and pedophilia, and they are beginning to wonder why. They are also beginning to question why we put our trust and support in people who operate in this manner.

Looking Deeper:

We have interviewed a survivor of elite pedophile rings like the one Epstein and Maxwell ran. Her name is Anneke Lucas and you can watch her full testimony here on CETV.

You can also watch a recent documentary called Out of Shadows that explores this topic in detail on CETV as well.
