Readers have asked me why 10 of 11 US aircraft carriers are lined up in a row in dock allegedly for maintenance. It reminds them of the battleships at Pearl Harbor. Readers ask if this could be an indication that the Deep State is planning a false flag attack on the carriers, as was carried out on the World Trade Center and Pentagon in order to get the US at war with the independent Muslim world, this time in order to get the US at war with Russia before Trump can restore normal relations.

I don’t think so. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was real, if provoked. The deception apparently was in the fact that Washington had warning but did not share it with the US Navy in Pearl Harbor. The Battleships were outmoded weapons, and the aircraft carriers had been removed. It would be extremely difficult to blame a false flag attack on US aircraft carriers on Russia. Indeed, if Russia wants to attack the US, the target would not be obsolete weapons such as aircraft carriers.

According to what I have been told by former(?) intelligence officers, the aircraft carriers are in dock so that their copper wiring can be replaced by fiber optics. Apparently, the Russians have the capability to shut down the operating systems of our ships and aircraft that are copper wired. In behalf of this conclusion, there were news reports that a missile ship Washington sent to impress the Russian naval base in Crimea had all its systems shut down by the overflight of one Russian jet. According to another news report, two Israeli US jet fighters were sent to express disobedience to Russia’s controlled airspace in Syria. The Russians asked the Israelis to leave, and when they did not, the Russians shut down the fire control and communication systems of their aircraft.

According to what I have been told, the Russians discovered that copper wiring permits them to disrupt the operating systems with certain radar frequencies built into their air control systems

If this account is true, and I lack the technical expertise to judge what I have been told, we are presented with a test case of what we are told are Russian and Chinese aggressive intentions against the West. With the US carrier task forces inoperative, this is a prime time for Russia to seize Ukraine and whatever else they are alleged to want, and it is a prime time for China to take Taiwan and Japan if they want it. There is no American Navy to deploy to stop them, and a nuclear threat from the clowns in Washington would mean nothing other than the complete destruction of the entire Western world, with the moronic idiots in Washington being the first to go.

ORDER IT NOW

The charges of Chinese and Russian aggression are fantastic lies. China has not declared the Gulf of Mexico or the seas off the California coasts to be “areas of Chinese national interest,” but the killer bitch Hillary in the regime of the Nobel Peace Laureate declared the South China Sea to be “an area of US national interest.” This is provocation beyond provocation. No intelligent diplomat would ever make such a ridiculous and provocative claim.

Russia conquered Georgia in response to Georgia’s invasion of South Ossetia, but released it and did not reincorporate the former Russian province back into the Russian Federation where it had resided for 300 years. Russia refused the requests for reincorporation from the Donetsk and Luhansk breakaway republics in Ukraine. Russia has not declared the Baltics and Eastern Europe to be areas of Russian national interest, but the US has and has incorporated them into Washington’s mercenary army, stationing troops, tanks, and missiles there with which to attack Russia. Russia has not responded in kind.

All of the aggression in the world stems from Washington. This is plain as day. How come so few see the obvious? Who else but Washington has been at war since the Clinton regime murdering people in nine countries?

Why is the entire liberal-progressive-left helping the entrenched CIA Establishment demonize president-elect Donald Trump, whose stated goal is to normalize relations with Russia? Is this an indication that the liberal-progressive-left is a CIA front? This possibility is not far-fetched. As it is a known fact that the CIA owns the American and European print and TV media, why would the CIA ignore the liberal-left “progressive” Internet media?

The rule is that “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Clearly the Establishment enemy of the liberal-left is Trump’s enemy, so why is the liberal-left allied with its Establishment enemy against Trump?

The real question is: Does the US really have an independent liberal-left?

If so, where is it? The liberal-progressive-left has served as protectors of the fake 9/11 official story that a few Saudis uninformed by an intelligence service or a state apparatus outwitted all 16 US intelligence agencies, the National Security Council, the Pentagon, airport security, air traffic control, the US Air Force and Dick Cheney himself, along with Israel’s Mossad and all the intelligence services of the US Empire, and inflicted the most humuliating defeat on an alleged “superpower” in the entire history of the world.

Anyone stupid enough to believe the official 9/11 story is not sufficiently intelligent to be qualified to be left-wing or even a sentient being.

What the Western world hurtling to its destruction desperately needs is a real left-wing, a left-wing immune to emotional disabilities that blind it to reality.

  1. Jeepers, Paul, you just caused a dim bulb to light somewhere deep within the propaganda bowels of the Deep State. Who had come to power in Russia, just before 9-11?

  2. Israel Shamir reported in Counter Punch and elsewhere that the Russians were able to steer two incoming missiles away from Syria by using such a device. This happened two or three years ago but nobody picked up on it that I’m aware of.

  3. I found the stuff about the copper wiring very informative: certainly there is nothing about it in the MSM. Surprise! Surprise !
    ” Russia conquered Georgia in response to Georgia’s invasion of South Ossetia.” Actually, Russian troops took a small part of Georgia proper, which they swiftly handed back when the ceasefire was re-imposed. ( Russia conquering Georgia is just what the NeoCons would have wanted, but V V Putin is much too clever a politician to do anything so stupid. )
    Otherwise, keep up the good work !

    The real question is: Does the US really have an independent liberal-left?

    Not really. The government has infiltrated and co-opted it all, bending it to serve it’s own purposes. There’s no longer any real liberal-left structure emphasizing the rights and interests of the mass of working people but has all shifted towards identity politics. This way people can get distracted with endless circuses of gonad politics and race rows without ever getting at the real underlying issues. Most of the current lefty type groups are fake fronts for the government, pushing oligarch’s agendas in a leftist disguise.

    The answer is the same Brimelow gave about Conservatism: the mainstream liberal left has been bought.

    Sanders was the torchbearer of the un-bought left: his campaign was sabotaged.
    Much of the un-bought leftist media made it to the Fake News site list.

    probably why so many rational, thinking individuals are self identifying as independents within the political spectrum these days. Both left and right are false fronts, opposite sides of the same coin. the nonsense will continue/ get worse until America rescues it's children from the clutches of government controlled "education", and a real, thinking public can rescue the republic.

  6. When Jared Israel and I were researching the events of 911 for The Emperor’s New Clothes website in September 2001, Jared told me he realized The Left in the US was owned by the government by the 1980′s. He had been an anti-Vietnam War student protest leader in the 1960′s, and saw covert agents inflitrate the student movement and systematically oust honest leftists. By the late 1970′s he and most honest leftists had been purged or had quit in disgust.

    Daniel Brandt, creator of the NameBase political research tool, made similar observations back in the 1990′s in his NameBase NewsLine. He was also an anti-Vietnam War student leader, and saw government people take over the anti-war student movement 1968-1969.

    The Left in the US has been owned by the CIA for the past four decades.

    I don't think I put it quite that way, Illarion.

    However I put it then, what I think is that there was indeed government infiltration of the '60s student movement -- the patterns of arrests of the Weathermen, jailing minor figures but protecting the key figures such as Bernardine Dohrn and Bill Ayers, which I have documented in a series beginning at http://tenc.net/exhumed.htm -- certainly suggests that. But one can easily exaggerate the importance of this.

    The key question in any movement is the thinking of people. A proper analysis of my own experience as co-leader of the opposition to the Weathermen in Students for a Democratic Society (which analysis I have not written) would show that the anti-Weatherman forces initially defeated the Weathermen because we won the battle of ideas, and then lost -- and left them and others, whom one might call 'Weatherman Light' -- in control of the Left NOT because of government agents, but because of political weaknesses of various sorts.

    It is always easy to assume that somebody who is routinely wrong -- such as the vicious antisemite and racist, Paul Craig Roberts -- is a government agent. The point is to expose his lies and defeat his ideas. (E.g., one could have a lot of fun writing an article documenting the many, many times that Roberts has written articles hysterically warning that the U.S., controlled by the Great and Powerful Jews, will, next week, attack Iran, while in fact not only has the U.S. never attacked Iran, but it has helped it immensely by getting rid of anti-Mullah rulers in Iraq and Afghanistan.)

    Is Roberts a government agent? How do I know? The point is, he's politically harmful -- that is what people have to see.

    Aircraft carriers are a tool to project power for hegemonic purposes. They in no way can be used to protect the US from attack. In fact that is true of all naval vessels. As has been said so many times before aircraft carriers are sitting ducks.

    The US is surrounded by two oceans. The navy could be used to sink any invasion fleets before they got close to our shores. That is the only use to which the US Navy should be put. No military units of the United States should be stationed outside the Western Hemisphere.

    In fact that is true of all naval vessels

    Not true, Arleigh Burke-class DDGs equipped with SPY-1D (A, B, C, M….) radar and SM-6 SAMs are formidable air defense ships. While not omnipotent, especially against latest Russian (and allegedly Chinese) anti-shipping missiles, those are the ships specifically designed to protect carriers against airborne threats. They will work against third world navies and air forces.

    “the Russians have the capability to shut down the operating systems of our ships and aircraft that are copper wired”: if so, what an extraordinary failure of management; the Royal Navy executed Admiral Byng for less.

    Mind you, I’m disinclined to believe the story, except – ten in dock simultaneously! Some explanation is required.
