The elite in the West are planning for the day in 2027 when the governments they control merge to form the Coalition Of Nations (CON), run by one political party, the Conservative Reform Alliance Party (CRAP). Within its realm there will be one central bank and one currency. Countries will retain their identity in name only. All real decisions will be made in secret. The idea of referendums in which CRAP politicians risk defeat is anathema to them, so outcomes will be guaranteed by a corporate media blitz that would play on peoples’ fears. When double-speak Cameron talks of renegotiating the terms of Britain’s EU membership, he is mainly talking about scrapping the working time directive, which gives workers the right to a minimum number of holidays and rest breaks, restricts excessive night work, and gives the right to work no more than 48 hours per week. In his words: “We need a flexible, open, competitive Europe”. He might negotiate a deal to slightly curtail the number of EU jobseekers coming to Britain, but not substantially so, for corporations require to ‘top up’ their supply of cheap and ‘flexible’ British workers with foreign fodder.
The elite have concluded that authoritarian governments, like China, deliver the best economic performance, and can act rapidly to secure their interests against those of competing elites. The CON and its CRAP politicians will be authoritarian. They will impose the ‘solution’ of perpetual austerity – cuts in welfare and social care, privatisation of essential services; neutering of unions and worker’s rights; low wages and job uncertainty. ‘Education’ will be reduced to learning carefully chosen ‘facts’, which support the CRAP world view, with higher education being nothing more than a fast track to lifelong debt.
There will not be a New World Order, a single world government. There will be a Two World Order. The recent trade and military agreements between Russia and China signal a challenge to American hegemony. In the first steps of many, a major Russian financial institution signed a deal with the Bank of China to pay each other in domestic currencies. The hegemony of the dollar has allowed America to borrow and spend beyond its means, especially on weapons of mass destruction, used to ‘liberate’ Iraq and Libya of their oil.
The American hegemony was challenged in 2000, when Iraq decided to make oil transactions in euros instead of dollars. North Korea and Iran followed suit. In 2001, Venezuela, proposed the use of the euro in fixing the price of petrol. It was nothing other than this challenge to American hegemony that made Iraq, North Korea, and Iran the ‘axis of evil’, a term that supposedly described their “terrorist threat”, but which, in reality, described their challenge to the American elite, necessitating the invasion of Iraq by America and the American State of Britain. The CIA constantly demonises the governments of North Korea and Venezuela, and attempts to delegitimise them to their own people.
When double-speak Obama announced a “strategic pivot” in American defense policy to focus on the Pacific, it was to confront China. The US Navy patrols the strategic sea lanes near China, to potentially disrupt its oil corridors to the Middle East. America is establishing an Asian Missile Defense strategy, ostensibly to protect Japan, South Korea, and Australia from a North Korean nuclear attack. The real target is China, the only country in this region with serious long-range delivery capabilities. American strategists seek to make their navy five times that of the combined navies of Russia and China, achieved by a budget which accounts for half of world military spending.
The CIA sponsored toppling of Viktor Yanukovich in Ukraine was to achieve the encirclement of Russia by Nato. Yanukovich had replaced Viktor Yushchenko, a stooge of the Bush Administration, who was the former Governor of Ukraine’s Central Bank, which, in the 1990’s administered an IMF (American) program which ditched exchange controls, leading to a currency collapse, and the price of bread rising 300%, and electricity by 600%, but it was much cheaper for American corporations to buy Ukrainian raw materials. Wages fell by 75%, making Ukraine a place were American corporations could ‘do business’. Ukraine’s (eastern) Donbas contains an estimated 109 billion tons of coal, and much oil and gas. Its soil is the richest in the world, and is a fast-buck magnet for American corporations such as Monsanto.
American private military contractors such as Academi (Blackwater USA) are claimed to assist the Kiev National Guard (i.e. Right Sector fighters) to ‘purge’ the opposition, and establish total control over television, radio, and the press. Jeremy Scahill’s book, Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army, described Blackwater as a ‘shadowy mercenary company (employing) some of the most feared professional killers in the world accustomed to operating without worry of legal consequences (and) largely off the congressional radar’. It has ‘remarkable power and protection (from) the US war apparatus’. It is licensed to kill, destroy, and terrorise without judicial consequence. The coordinator of the Self-Defence of Donbass organization told reporters that a plane with 200 foreign mercenaries had landed at Donetsk airport. According to him, the mercenaries spoke English. These claims are strongly refuted by the Pentagon and American private military contractors. Yet, the use of such contractors has been a substantial part of American military operations, and to suggest that they are not used clandestinely is naive.
In Afghanistan (according to a Congressional Research Service (CRS) report of 2009), contractors made up 57% of the Pentagon’s Afghanistan personnel, which included 9,300 American citizens, with 16% of these being security personel. ‘Abuses and crimes committed by armed private security contractors and interrogators against local nationals may have undermined US efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan,’ the CRS study concluded.
According to Scahill, business with corporations like Monsanto and Chevron, and financial icons such as Barclays and Deutsche Bank, are channeled through two companies owned by Erik Prince, who owns Blackwater: Total Intelligence Solutions and Terrorism Research Center. Total Intelligence contracted with Monsanto to spy on and infiltrate organizations of anti-GM and animal rights activists in 2008 and 2009.
The Ukranian National Council for Radio and Television have banned all Russian TV newscasts in Ukraine. Editorial staff of the opposition media are physically attacked and threatened with death. Opposition political leader, Rostislav Vasilko, had needles forced into his fingernails, his lungs punctured; his ribs and nose broken. On February 28, 2014, the deputy governor of the Dnipropetrovsk region posted advice on Facebook on how to deal with Russian speaking east Ukranians who opposed Kiev – ‘offer those dirtbags any promises, guarantees, or concessions they want. And … we’ll hang them all later’. On March 6, 2014, Pavel Gubarev, leader of pro-Russian activists, was detained in Donetsk, and ‘comatised’ by the Ukrainian Security Service. On March 17, 2014, fascist members of the ‘People’s Tribunal’ in Vinnitsa demanded that the senior doctor of the regional children’s hospital resign because she had not condemned ‘the crimes of the former government’.
This is the atmosphere of tyranny in which the Ukranian Presidential election has taken place, one boycotted by many eastern Ukranians, whose referendum on autonomy from Kiev was denounced by America and its stooges as ‘illegal’. Where is the CON media coverage of the fascist excesses of the Kiev junta? – the same excesses they level at Russia and China.
Nato propagandist, Oana Lungescu, commended the elections in Ukraine as a “clear vote for the unity of Ukraine” and called on Russia to “engage constructively with the newly elected president”. A Russian reply was that Moscow might pull out of a co-operation treaty with Nato and take “measures of a military character” if there were major Nato deployments in eastern and central Europe. Zbigniew Brzezinski (National Security Advisor to Jimmy Carter; Obama was a student at Columbia University when he was directing its anti-Russian institute), recommends how Russia should be militarily weakened and intimidated by destabilizing its border regions, a political strategy taken up by Secretary of State John Kerry, who recruited his son Mark Brzezinski as a foreign policy adviser.
In terms of Orwell’s 1984, CON is Oceania, and Russia and China are Eurasia. They will be perpetually engaged in a propaganda war, the control of their populations being by omnipresent surveillance, public mind control through mass media, persecution of independent thinking, the re-writing of history for the elite’s advantage, all underpinned by stoking up hatred and fear of both internal and external ‘enemies’. Although the clones of tyranny in the Two World Order are not equal in military capability, as the Russian and Chinese ‘princes’ square up to the American ‘king’, the prospect for the small-fry are bleak – special forces, weapons, crowds of cops -they’ll teach you to submit and cry in the camps.
