GLADIO
NATO'S SECRET ARMY

"Operation GLADIO was a clandestine Cold War operation, run by European secret services, collaborating with NATO, the CIA and Britain's MI6 and Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) against a possible Soviet invasion, internal communist takeovers, or the political left gaining power.
The network included France, Germany, Belgium, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Turkey, Greece, Luxemburg, as well as politically neutral European countries Austria, Finland, Sweden and Switzerland.
Named "Gladio" (Latin for double-edged sword), NATO's armies remained secret until August 1990, when then Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti confirmed Italy's participation in testimony before a Senate subcommittee investigating terrorism.
... A 2000 Italian parliamentary investigation concluded that GLADIO operatives linked to the structures of United States intelligence were involved in bombings, massacres, and other terrorist attacks as part of a campaign against the political left."

Stephen Lendman

 

"A former Italian Prime Minister, an Italian judge, and the former head of Italian counterintelligence admit that NATO, with the help of the Pentagon and CIA, carried out terror bombings in Italy and other European countries in the 1950s and blamed the communists, in order to rally people's support for their governments in Europe in their fight against communism. These false flags included:
* The murder of the Turkish Prime Minister (1960)
* Bombings in Portugal (1966)
* The Piazza Fontana massacre in Italy (1969)
* Terror attacks in Turkey (1971)
* The Peteano bombing in Italy (1972)
* Shootings in Brescia, Italy and a bombing on an Italian train (1974)
* Shootings in Istanbul, Turkey (1977)
* The Atocha massacre in Madrid, Spain (1977)
* The abduction and murder of the Italian Prime Minister (1978)
* The bombing of the Bologna railway station in Italy (1980)
* Shooting and killing 28 shoppers in Brabant county, Belgium (1985)"

"In Italy, a number of 'coup attempts' [Operation Gladio in Europe after WWII] took place (in 1964, 1970, 1973 and 1974), though all were called off at critical moments once the government had been reminded of the existence of the 'security state': the real 'sovereign'. In these cases, various liaison officers, generals and fascist leaders exerted an effective veto on government policy by informing the prime minister that a coup had been set in progress, warning that he would have to suffer the consequences if he did not back down on his policy."

Ola Tunander

 

"Operation Gladio B is a classified ongoing expansion of the original Operation Gladio in which NATO countries created an anti-communist paramilitary terrorist network which carried out false flag operations throughout western Europe during the cold war. Instead, it is now expanded internationally and working with Al Qaeda and other groups that feature in the war on terror narrative. It has a designated office at the Pentagon."

"A Jordanian official reported ISIS leaders being trained by U.S. Intelligence at a CIA base in Jordan which were then used for [false flag] destabilization operations in Syria and later in Iraq. Nabil Na'eem, the founder of the Islamic Democratic Jihad Party and former top al-Qaeda commander, told the Beirut-based pan-Arab TV station al-Maydeen all current al-Qaeda affiliates, including ISIS, work for the CIA. "Key members of ISIS were trained by US CIA and Special Forces command at a secret camp in Jordan in 2012, according to informed Jordanian officials."

F. William Engdahl

 

"It is primarily Central Asia's strategic geopolitical location - truly at the continent's center - and the broadly undesirable course of events that could emerge if the region were to drift toward instability, that constitute the primary American interest Thus, given the potential for untoward developments in the region for Western interests, modest hands-on American influence in the region is desirable."

Graham Fuller - a former CIA station chief in Kabul, Afghanistan

 

"Gladio B network includes the intersection between Muslim extremists, drug runners, terrorists and money launderers with the upper levels of the US State Department, Pentagon and NATO."

James Corbett

 

"In the 1970s (up to 1980), only 5 to 10 per cent of the Swedish population believed in a direct Soviet threat. In 1983, however, after a series of submarines turned up within densely populated Swedish archipelagos, 42 per cent of the population viewed the Soviet Union as a direct threat; and the percentage of people viewing the Soviet Union as unfriendly went from 27 per cent to 83 per cent over the same period. Thus, in collaboration with trusted individuals within Sweden, US forces seem to have been able to change the mindset of the population and the government almost overnight. Members of the Swedish 'security state', or 'deep state', acted in collaboration with their US counterparts to deceive the Swedish government and public. These PSYOPs - psychological or 'perception management' operations - were run outside the law."

Ola Tunander

 

"After the Cold War had ended, then Italian prime minister Giulio Andreotti confirmed to the Italian Senate in August 1990 that Italy had had a secret stay-behind army, codenamed Gladio - the sword. A document dated 1 June 1959 from the Italian military secret service, SIFAR, revealed that SIFAR had been running the secret army with the support of NATO and in close collaboration with the US secret service, the CIA."

Swiss historian Daniele Ganser in his 2004 book "NATO's Secret Armies"

 

"The Gladio system has operated for four decades under various names. It has operated clandestinely, and we are entitled to attribute to it all the destabilization, all the provocation and all the terrorism that have occurred in our countries over these four decades."

Greek parliamentarian Vassilis Ephremidis

 

"The existence of Gladio B was revealed by FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds. She revealed regular meetings between senior US intelligence agents and current leader of Al Qaeda Ayman al-Zawahiri at the U.S. embassy in Azerbaijan and Baku starting in 1997 and continuing right up to the 9/11 attacks. In addition to al-Zawahiri, members of the bin Laden family (including Osama Bin Laden) and other mujahideen were transported by NATO aircraft to Central Asia and the Balkans to participate in false flag "destabilization operations". Other operatives were also flown, on US Intelligence orders, to Turkey, to train and prepare to participate in these operations, in locations where some of the 9/11 hijackers were also being trained. Additionally, Osama Bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri worked with the U.S. government for 3 months after 9/11 to coordinate false flag destabilization operations in the Caucus region. A Turkish and Israeli run network paid top intelligence officials to steal nuclear weapon secrets that were sold on the international black market to countries like Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. These and other allegations were confirmed by tthe Sunday Times [London] after speaking to Pentagon and MI6 sources, and by obtaining a document signed by an FBI official confirming the operation's existence. However, apparently due to pressure from political intelligence committees, it the document itself was never published."

"Gladio B is projecting U.S. power in the former Soviet sphere of influence to access previously untapped strategic energy and mineral reserves for U.S. and European companies; pushing back Russian and Chinese power; and expanding the scope of lucrative criminal activities, particularly illegal arms and drugs trafficking."

FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds

 

"There are vital strategic interests for the US and its allies in the Central Asia-Caucasus that make it a prime target for covert operations.
"Strategy of tension" operations [in the Central Asia-Caucasus region] have been conducted in the past by people we know were linked to NATO's covert army;
There are a number of influential people operating in and around the region and in close cooperation with the Turkish deep state, American intelligence, the Pentagon and NATO who seem to be involved with ongoing operations today related to the fostering of religious sectarianism in the region."

James Corbett

 

"In early 1970s, Italian and US intelligence and secret service agents [Operation Gladio] were able to assume vital positions at the highest levels of Italy's Red Brigades. In 1974, the left-wing leadership of the Red Brigades had been arrested, facilitating the 'takeover' of the organisation by the US and Italian services. This resulted in the launch of a range of professional military operations, a period of 'blind terror' and a radical increase in the number of attacks being carried out within Italy."

Ola Tunander

 

"Members of Operation Gladio were supposed to attack civilians, women, children, innocent people outside the political area, for one simple reason: to force the Italian public to turn to the State, to turn to the regime, and ask for greater security. It was precisely the role of the RIght in Italy. It placed itself at the service of the State which created a strategy aptly called the "Strategy of Tension", in so far as they had to get people to accept that at any moment over a period of thirty years, from1960 to the mid-1980s, a state of emergency could be declared so people would willingly trade part of their freedom for the security of being able to walk the streets, to go on trains or enter a bank. This is the political logic behind all the bombings of civilians. The perpetrators remain unpunished because the State cannot condemn itseslf."

"Operation Gladio was a secret NATO strategy implemented after WWII that advocated an alliance between the mafia, CIA, Vatican and Knights of Malta."

Dean Henderson

 

"In July 2014, it was reported that the Islamic State was created by the CIA/MI6/Mossad, likely apart of NATO's Gladio B and that Israel is using it as a front organization to protect its borders from surrounding enemies."

"Most Americans have never heard of Sibel Edmonds, and if the U.S. government has its way, they never will. The former FBI translator turned whistleblower tells a chilling story of corruption at Washington's highest levels - sale of nuclear secrets, shielding of terrorist suspects, illegal arms transfers, narcotics trafficking, money laundering, espionage Edmonds's account is full of dates, places, and names A treasonous plot to embed moles in American military and nuclear installations and pass sensitive intelligence to Israeli, Pakistani, and Turkish sources was facilitated by figures in the upper echelons of the State and Defense Departments. Her charges could be easily confirmed or dismissed if classified government documents were made available to investigators."

ex-CIA agent Phil Giraldi, 2008

 

"For the past 11 years I have been emphasizing that my State Secrets Privilege & Gag Orders had to do with the FBI files (covering period 1996-2002 February) on covert-terrorist operations in Caucasus and Central Asia [Gladio B] backed, managed and armed by US actors. These US-NATO directed operations in the region involved Osama Bin-Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri.
The FBI documents contained damning evidence collected between 1996-2002 tying these terror operations directly to U.S. persons in the State Department, CIA and Pentagon. Also, the State Department got Congress to grant huge amounts of funds to "front' NGOs and businesses to funnel money to the terrorist cells in this region."

FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds

 

"After World War II, the US created and maintained special intelligence ties and clandestine ties with individuals all over Europe. These local 'US elites' were more tuned to US interests and were often able to influence local state policies, and even to veto or manipulate policies and individuals in conflict with US interests. Such elites formed part of what we have called the 'security state' - the 'sovereign' - 'the deep state' - which included informal groups and their network of extra-legal executives.
One such 'entirely informal group' was the Cercle Pinay, which brought together Atlanticist ultra-right-wing political leaders, industrialists and intelligence chiefs. Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti named other participants: US State Secretary Henry Kissinger, US Vice President Nelson Rockefeller, David Rockefeller from Chase Manhattan Bank, German CSU leader Franz Josef Strauss, Andreotti himself and Italian industrialist Carlo Pesenti."

Ola Tunander

 

""Operation Gladio" was a NATO plan to use "stay-behind" paramilitary armies to counter a potential Soviet invasion and occupation of Europe.
"Operation Gladio" was not a name for the overall program, which involved 12 NATO member nations (Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain and Turkey) and four neutral countries (Austria, Finland, Sweden and Switzerland), but specifically its most famous incarnation in Italy.
The operation was not inherently a NATO one. It was first coordinated in 1948 by a trans-Atlantic body based in France known as the "Western Union Clandestine Committee." After the creation of NATO in 1949 the body was folded into the organization's Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) under the revised name of the Clandestine Planning Committee.
Although the individual stay-behind programs were organized in Europe, the scope of their operations were not limited to Europe and strayed far from any supposed mandate to prepare for a Soviet invasion. "Gladio" operations included and include everything from drug running and money laundering to terror attacks and political assassinations."

James Corbett

 

"Daniele Glaser in his book" Nato's Secret Armies" wrote that Giulio Andreotti, the then Italian Prime Minister admitted on August 3, 1990 that a secret army had existed in his country since the end of the Second World War, known as "Gladio;" that it had been created by the CIA and MI6 and that it was coordinated by the unorthodox warfare section of NATO.
Glaser thereby confirmed one of the most long-running rumors in post-war Italy. Many people, including investigating magistrates, had long suspected that Gladio was not only part of a network of secret armies created by the Americans across Western Europe to fight in the resistance to a putative Soviet occupation, but also that these networks had become involved in influencing the outcome of elections, even to the extent of forming sinister alliances with terrorist organizations."

John Coleman

 

"Similar to the original Operation Gladio in which NATO countries worked with Neo Nazi/Fascist paramilitary organizations in Western Europe and were led by recruited Nazi war criminals, Operation Gladio B has continued into Ukraine. Confirmed by U.S. Intelligence Officials and working with Ukrainian Nationalist and Neo Nazi Far-Right militia including the Ukranian National Assembly, Right Sektor, and the Svoboda party lead by people's deputy of Ukraine Oleh Tyahnybok. The groups are suspected of playing a decisive role in the false flag sniper attacks in which they could be seen shooting both supporting demonstrators and policemen causing destabilization that led to the collapse of elected Ukrainian government."

"After the murder of Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro in 1978, his wife recounted how a senior US official had threatened to use 'groups on the fringes' of the official services to kill her husband 'if he did not abandon his policy' of a 'historical compromise' with the left. The 'Red Brigade' kidnapping of Moro in March 1978 took place on the very day on which his 'compromise' was to go to the vote in the Italian parliament. Later, it was discovered that an apartment and printing press used by the 'Red Brigades' belonged to Italy's military intelligence."

Ola Tunander

 

"Under Operation GLADIO, the Pentagon together with the CIA, MI6 and NATO, set up and operated stay-behind armies as an instrument to manipulate and control the democracies of Western Europe - unknown to European populations and parliaments. This strategy lead to terror and fear. The stay-behind network, in the absence of a Soviet invasion, functioned as a straightjacket for the democracies of Western Europe. In some operations, the secret stay-behind soldiers together with the secret military services, monitored left-wing politicians and spread anti-Communist propaganda. In more violent operations the secret war led to bloodshed. Tragically the secret warriors linked up with right-wing terrorists, a combination that led - in some countries including at least Belgium, Italy, France, Portugal, Spain, Greece and Turkey - to massacres, torture, coup d'etats and other violent acts. Most of these state-sponsored terrorist operations enjoyed the encouragement and protection of selected highly placed government and military officials in Europe and in the United States The stay-behind network had served as a tool to spread fear amongst the population in the absence of an invasion. The secret armies in some cases functioned as an almost perfect manipulation system that transported the fears of high-ranking military officers in the Pentagon and NATO to the populations in Western Europe. European citizens, as the strategists in the Pentagon saw it, due to their limited vision were unable to perceive the real and present danger of Communism, and therefore they had to be manipulated. By killing innocent citizens on market squares or in supermarkets and blaming the crime on the Communists the secret armies together with right-wing terrorists effectively translated the fears of Pentagon strategists into very real fears of European citizens."

Swiss historian Daniele Ganser in his 2004 book "NATO's Secret Armies"

 

"Those massacres those bombs, those military actions [terrorist attacks on Italian civilians after World War II by NATO's stay-behind armies] had been organized or promoted or supported by men inside Italian state institutions and, as had been discovered more recently, by men linked to the structures of United States intelligence [CIA]."

Italian Senate in 2000

 

"The top echelon of the Red Brigades was run by Western intelligence. Until 1974, the 'sovereign' could rely on the assassination squads of Aginter Press, but when it began using the Red Brigades it needed special forces support. The killing of Aldo Moro was a special forces operation, involving the use of ammunition from special forces supplies."

Ola Tunander

 

"The strategic doctrine employed by the Gladio operations was known as the "strategy of tension." This doctrine involves the creation, encouragement or exacerbation of political, religious, ethnic or other forms of conflict in order to incite fear in a population and manipulate public opinion."

James Corbett

 

"The United States, operating partly through NATO, sponsored and funded so-called stay-behind paramilitary groups in Italy and other NATO countries (Operation Gladio)."

Peter Dale Scott

 

"Terrorist attacks on Italian civilians after World War II by NATO's stay-behind armies were supposed to force the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater security. This is the political logic that lies behind all the massacres and the bombings which remain unpunished.
... You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public to turn to the State to ask for greater security."

right wing terrorist Vincenzo Vinciguerra - about NATO's "Operation Gladio" attacks on Italian civilians after World War II [1984]

 

"From late 1960s, fascist activists in Italy started to dress as left-wingers. They masqueraded as Maoists and anarchists while conducting 'false flag' terrorist operations, particularly a bombing campaign, in collaboration with US intelligence in order to manipulate public opinion and limit the range of the democratic discourse. In the early and mid-1980s, attacks similar to those that had taken place in Italy were also conducted in Belgium, including the random shooting of 28 people in supermarkets outside Brussels in 1983-85. A 'left-wing' terrorist group known as the Cellules Communistes Combattantes (CCC) was accused of having carried out these operations. Later, however, it transpired that the attacks had been conducted by fascist and Nazi groups, with US support."

GLOBALIZATION

"By early 2000, the process of global financial deregulation was in many regards a fait accompli. Wall Street routinely invaded country after country. The domestic banking system was put on the auction block and reorganized under the surveillance of external creditors. National financial institutions were systematically destabilized and driven out of business; mass unemployment and poverty are the invariable results."

Michel Chossudovsky

"The relationship between globalization and militarism should be seen as two sides of the same coin. On one side, globalization promotes the conditions that lead to unrest, inequality, conflict, and, ultimately, war. On the other side, globalization fuels the means to wage war by protecting and promoting the military industries needed to produce sophisticated weaponry. This weaponry, in turn, is used or is threatened to be used to protect the investments of transnational corporations and their shareholders."

Steven Staples

 

"Globalization can be seen as the triumph of capitalism: the ascendancy of economics over politics, of corporate demands over public policy, of the private over the public interest, of the transnational corporation and its global framework over the national state."

Gary Teeple in his book "Globalization and the Decline of Social Reform"

 

"Corporations want to move in and grab hold of everything, be it education, health, medical care, water supplies, electrical utilities, whatever else. Privatize and deregulate. That's their goal, the thirdworldization of America - and everywhere else. They just want to get richer and richer and make us work harder and harder for less and less. That's what globalization and the "free market" are all about."

Michael Parenti, 2002

 

"If we're going to have globalization, let's have a globalization of human rights."

Howard Zinn, 2002

 

"Today corporate globalization needs an international confederation of loyal, corrupt, authoritarian governments in poorer countries to push through unpopular reforms and quell the mutinies. It needs a press that pretends to be free. It needs courts that pretend to dispense justice."

Arundhati Roy in her book "War Talk"

 

"America can't let us stay in power. We are the exception to the new globalization order. If we succeed, we are an example to all the Americas."

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's minister Miguel Bustamante Madriz

 

"For globalization to work, America can't be afraid to act like the almighty superpower that it is. The hidden hand of the market will never work without a hidden fist.
McDonald's cannot flourish without McDonnell-Douglas, the designer of the F-15, and the hidden fist that keeps the world safe for Silicon Valley's technology is called the United States Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps."

Thomas Friedman, 1999

 

"Globalization, as it has been advocated, often seems to replace the old dictatorships of national elites with new dictatorships of international finance. Countries are effectively told that if they don't follow certain conditions, the capital markets or the IMF will refuse to lend them money. They are basically forced to give up part of their sovereignty, to let capricious capital markets, including the speculators whose only concerns are short-term rather than the long-term growth of the country and the improvement of living standards, "discipline" them, telling them what they should and should not do."

Joseph Stiglitz in his book "Globalization and Discontents"

 

"Modern democracies have been around for long enough for neo-liberal capitalists to learn how to subvert them. They have mastered the technique of infiltrating the instruments of democracy - the "independent" judiciary, the "free" press, the parliament - and molding them to their purpose. The project of corporate globalization has cracked the code. Free elections, a free press, and an independent judiciary mean little when the free market has reduced them to commodities on sale to the highest bidder."

Arundhati Roy in her book "An Ordinary Person's Guide to Empire"

 

"There is no known case in which globalization has led to prosperity in any Third World country, and none of the world's twenty-four reasonably developed capitalist nations, regardless of their ideological explanations, got where they are by following any of the prescriptions contained in globalization doctrine."

Chalmers Johnson in his book "Sorrows of Empire"

 

"Economic hit men (EHMs) are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. They funnel money from the World Bank, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and other foreign "aid" organizations into the coffers of huge corporations and the pockets of a few wealthy families who control the planet's natural resources. Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder. They play a game as old as empire, but one that has taken on new and terrifying dimensions during this time of globalization."

John Perkins in his book "Confessions of Economic Hit Man"

 

"Corporations are like the feudal domains that evolved into nation-states; they are nothing less than the vanguard of a new Darwinian organization of politics ... the forefront of real globalization."

Robert Kaplan, 1997

 

"The goal [of globalization] was to create an integrated international order that offered no barriers to the flow of goods, capital, and ideas, and that is administered by the United States. The whole world is to become a free-market economy, and the US. military is there to remove any opposition to this process. And since there will be those who will not be happy with this project and will resist it, our foreign policy necessarily has to become, in essence, a military one."

Andrew Bacevich in his book "American Empire"

 

"Looking at the global picture one gets a striking view of inequality. The fact that the combined wealth of the 225 richest people in the world nearly equals the annual income of the poorer half of the earth's population, that is to say more than 2.5 billion human beings, is more arresting than volumes of social criticism."

social critic Daniel Singer in his 1999 book "Whose Millennium: Theirs or Ours?"

 

" America is the largest debtor nation, and at the same time it is the world's creditor. "Creating money out of thin air", while at the same time imposing the U.S. dollar as a global currency constitutes the ultimate instrument of conquest and imperial domination.
The U.S. monetary system is supported by the most powerful military power on earth. The dollar is backed by U.S. military might, which constitutes a means for displacing national currencies and imposing the U.S. dollar. In this regard, the Federal Reserve's overwhelming powers of money creation constitute an essential lever of an imperial monetary agenda.
... The Western banking system controls a worldwide electronic banking network. The control of money creation at a world level constitutes the ultimate instrument of economic and social domination. The creation of fiat money provides a command over the real economies of countries worldwide. The ultimate lever of the U.S.-NATO imperial design is to override and destroy national currencies."

Michel Chossudovsky in the book "The Global Economic Crisis"

"During the past two centuries when the peoples of the world were gradually winning their political freedom from the dynastic monarchies, the major banking families of Europe and America were actually reversing the trend by setting up new dynasties of political control through the formation of international financial combines. These banking dynasties had learned that all governments must have sources of revenue from which to borrow in times of emergency. They had also learned that by providing such funds from their own private resources, they could make both kings and democratic leaders tremendously subservient to their will."

Carroll Quigley in his book "Tragedy and Hope"

 

"There is a special breed of international financiers whose success typically is built upon certain character traits. Those include cold objectivity, immunity to patriotism, and indifference to the human condition. That profile is the basis for proposing a theoretical strategy, called the Rothschild Formula, which motivates such men to propel governments into war for the profits they yield... As long as the mechanism of central banking exists, it will be to such men an irresistible temptation to convert debt into perpetual war and war into perpetual debt."

G. Edward Griffin in his book "The Creature from Jekyll Island"

 

"By the end of the 1890's [J.P.] Morgan and [John D.] Rockefeller had become the giants of an increasingly powerful Money Trust controlling American industry and government policy... Some 60 families - names like Rockefeller, Morgan, Dodge, Mellon, Pratt, Harkness, Whitney, Duke, Harriman, Carnegie, Vanderbilt, DuPont, Guggenheim, Astor, Lehman, Warburg, Taft, Huntington, Baruch and Rosenwald formed a close network of plutocratic wealth that manipulated, bribed, and bullied its way to control the destiny of the United States. At the dawn of the 20th Century, some sixty ultra-rich families, through dynastic intermarriage and corporate, interconnected shareholdings, had gained control of American industry and banking institutions."

F. William Engdahl in his book "Gods of Money: Wall Street and the Death of the American Century"

 

"The substantive financial powers of the world were in the hands of investment bankers (also called "international" or "merchant" bankers) who remained largely behind the scenes in their own unincorporated private banks. These formed a system of international cooperation and national dominance which was more private, more powerful, and more secret than that of their agents in the central banks. This dominance of investment bankers was based on their control over the flows of credit and investment funds in their own countries and throughout the world. They could dominate the financial and industrial systems of their own countries by their influence over the flow of current funds through bank loans, the discount rate, and the re-discounting of commercial debts; they could dominate governments by their control over current government loans and the play of the international exchanges. Almost all of this power was exercised by the personal influence and prestige of men who had demonstrated their ability in the past to bring off successful financial coups to keep their word, to remain cool in a crisis, and to share their winning opportunities with their associates. In this system the Rothschilds had been preeminent during much of the nineteenth century, but, at the end of that century, they were being replaced by J. P. Morgan whose central office was in New York, although it was always operated as if it were in London."

Carroll Quigley, in his book "Tragedy and Hope"

 

"Our global banking system is a global cartel, a "super-entity" in which the world's major banks all own each other and own the controlling shares in the world's largest multinational corporations.
... This is the real "free market," a highly profitable global banking cartel, functioning as a worldwide financial Mafia."

Andrew Gavin Marshall

 

"In 1899, J. Pierpont Morgan and Anthony Drexel went to England to attend the International Bankers Convention. When they returned, J.P. Morgan had been appointed head representative of the Rothschild interests in the United States.
As the result of the London Conference, J.P. Morgan and Company of New York, Drexel and Company of Philadelphia, Grenfell and Company of London, Morgan Harjes Cie of Paris, M.M. Warburg Company of Germany and America, and the House of Rothschild, were all affiliated."

William Guy Carr in his book "Pawns In The Game"

 

"The bankers control the world's major corporations, media, intelligence agencies, think tanks, foundations and universities."

Henry Makow

 

"The structure of financial controls created by the tycoons of 'Big Banking' and 'Big Business' was of extraordinary complexity, one business fief being built on another, both being allied with semi-independent associates, the whole rearing upward into two pinnacles of economic and political power, of which one, centered in New York, was headed by J. P. Morgan and Company and the other, in Ohio, was headed by the Rockefeller family. When the two cooperated, as they generally did, they could influence the economic life of the country to a large degree and could almost control its political life, at least at the Federal level. They caused the "panic of 1907" and the collapse of two railroads, one in 1914 and the other in 1929."

Carroll Quigley in his book "Tragedy and Hope"

 

"The reason why the British abolished the right of the American Colonies to create and issue their own money is simple: the bankers did not want the Colonists to be able to trade among themselves without paying tribute to them... The objective was clear: by forcing Americans to pay interest, the European money changers wanted to enslave the Colonies in a mountain of debt.
... We are paying the International Bankers hundreds of millions of dollars each year in interest on our National Debt. This money (or credit) was created by the bankers out of nothing - and loaned to us at a high rate of interest."

Des Griffin in his book "Fourth Reich of the Rich

 

"Hundreds of years ago, bankers began to specialize, with the richer and more influential ones associated increasingly with foreign trade and foreign-exchange transactions. Since these were richer and more cosmopolitan and increasingly concerned with questions of political significance, such as stability and debasement of currencies, war and peace, dynastic marriages, and worldwide trading monopolies, they became the financiers and financial advisers of governments.
Moreover, since their relationships with governments were always in monetary terms and not real terms, and since they were always obsessed with the stability of monetary exchanges between one country's money and another, they used their power and influence to do two things: (1) to get all money and debts expressed in terms of a strictly limited commodity-ultimately gold; and (2) to get all monetary matters out of the control of governments and political authority, on the ground that they would be handled better by private banking interests."

Carroll Quigley, in his book "Tragedy and Hope"

 

"We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent."

international banker James Warburg testifying before the United States Senate on Feb. 7, 1950

 

"A small group of dominant men (a global network of Anglophile financial elites) have been able to secure control of local, national, continental, and even global policy. Though the power of this network is not complete, they are moving inexorably in that direction. Without increased awareness (and resistance), their unelected and unaccountable global state will become a reality. And though the illusion of national sovereignty might be maintained, the freedom of the world's citizens will be controlled within very narrow alternatives."

Joseph Plummer in his book Tragedy and Hope 101

 

"The society of experts will control propaganda and education. It will teach loyalty to the world government, and make nationalism high treason. The government, being an oligarchy, will instill submissiveness into the great bulk of the population It is possible that it may invent ingenious ways of concealing its own power, leaving the forms of democracy intact, and allowing the plutocrats or politicians to imagine that they are cleverly controlling these forms whatever the outward forms may be, all real power will come to be concentrated in the hands of those who understand the art of scientific manipulation."

Bertrand Russell

 

"Real power is unelected. Politicians change, but the power structure does not. The Network (a global Anglophile financial elite power structure) operates behind the scenes, for its own benefit, without ever consulting those who are affected by its decisions.
The Network is composed of individuals who prefer anonymity. They are "satisfied to possess the reality rather than the appearance of power." This approach of secretly exercising power is common throughout history because it protects the conspirators from the consequences of their actions.
A primary tactic for directing public opinion and "government" policy is to place willing servants in leadership positions of trusted institutions (media, universities, government, foundations, etc.). If there is ever a major backlash against a given policy, the servant can be replaced. This leaves both the institution and the individuals who actually direct its power unharmed.
Historically, those who establish sophisticated systems of domination are not only highly intelligent; they are supremely deceptive and ruthless. They completely ignore the ethical barriers that govern a normal human being's behavior. They do not believe that the moral and legislative laws, which others are expected to abide by, apply to them. This gives them an enormous advantage over the masses that cannot easily imagine their mind-set. Advances in technology have enabled modern rulers to dominate larger and larger areas of the globe.
As a result, the substance of national sovereignty has already been destroyed, and whatever remains of its shell is being dismantled as quickly as possible. The new system they're building (which they themselves refer to as a New World Order), will trade the existing illusion of democratically directed government for their long-sought, "expert-directed," authoritarian technocracy.

Joseph Plummer in his book Tragedy and Hope 101

 

GLOBAL WARMING
(man-made climate change)

"When it comes to future climate, no one knows what they're talking about. No one. Not the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) nor its scientists, not the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, not the NRDC or National Geographic, not the U.S. congressional House leadership, not me, not you, and certainly not Mr. Albert Gore."

Patrick Frank, chemist

 

"Governmental officials are currently casting trillions of dollars down huge rat hole to solve a problem which doesn't exist... Packs of rats wait in that hole to reap trillions coming down it to fill advocates' pockets... The money we are about to spend on drastically reducing carbon dioxide will line the pockets of the environmentalists... Some politicians are standing in line to fill their pockets with kickback money for large grants to the environmental experts... In case you haven't noticed, it is an expanding profit-making industry, growing in proportion to the horror warnings by government officials and former vice-presidents."

Tom McElmurry, meteorologist, former tornado forecaster in Severe Weather Service

 

"Politicians have come to see global warming as a way to raise revenue by rationing CO2 production with schemes such as the 'cap and trade' legislation now in Congress. The taxes assessed for producing CO2 could be huge. But global warming as proclaimed by Al Gore and Co., is a hoax."

John Takeuchi, meteorologist

 

"If this were a human caused warming, it should have started about 1940 and trended strongly upward as global industrialization followed World War II. That isn't what happened. The warming started about 1850. We had a surge of warming from about 1850 to 1870. We had another surge from 1916 to 1940 and then, when the greenhouse gasses began to spew from the factories, the temperatures went down for 35 years. 1976 to 1998, we had another surge of warming, but we've had no warming in the last 8 years. So, what we have is an erratic warming that started too soon to be blamed on humans."

Dennis Avery

 

"Most meteorological research is funded by the federal government. And boy, if you want to get federal funding, you better not come out and say human-induced global warming is a hoax because you stand the chance of not getting funded."

Willaim Gray

 

"Billions of dollars of grant money [over $50 billion] are flowing into the pockets of those on the man-made global warming bandwagon. No man-made global warming, the money dries up. This is big money, make no mistake about it. Always follow the money trail and it tells a story."

James Spann, American Meteorological Society-certified meteorologist

 

"The only people who would be hurt by abandoning the Kyoto Protocol [on Climate Change] would be several thousand people who make a living attending conferences on global warming."

Kirill Kondratyev, scientist, Russian Academy of Sciences

 

"Climate change has become a convenient excuse when there are other environmental issues that need to be addressed... If we disproportionately blame ourselves for climate change, our response will be different... We should look at the bigger picture and address other issues... There are serious environment problems that need to be addressed in order to effectively deal with climate change... The issues are: the destruction and conversion of forest, ocean, fresh water systems and other natural habitats; overharvesting of wild foods; the loss of biodiversity; excess fossil fuel extraction; soil erosion and swelling human population."

Perry Ong, director of the Institute of Biology at the UP College of Science, Phillipines

 

"The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) is pre-programmed to produce reports to support the hypotheses of anthropogenic warming and the control of greenhouse gases, as envisioned in the Global Climate Treaty... The 1990 IPCC Summary completely ignored satellite data, since they showed no warming. The 1995 IPCC report was notorious for the significant alterations made to the text after it was approved by the scientists - in order to convey the impression of a human influence. The 2001 IPCC report claimed the twentieth century showed 'unusual warming' based on the now-discredited hockey stick graph. The latest IPCC report, published in 2007, completely devaluates the climate contributions from changes in solar activities, which are likely to dominate any human influence."

Frederick Seitz, Past President, U.S. National Academy of Sciences

 

"The longer trends tell us that by 2020, we will be experiencing an unusually low-energy sun. Apparently, these are exactly the conditions that ... ushered in the Little Ice Age. The science goes on. There is an increasing body of science that says that the sun may have a greater role. If it does have, then global warming is likely to stop, as it appears to have done since 1998, and if the current sunspot cycle fails to ignite, then cooling, possibly rapid and severe cooling, may eventuate."

Geoffrey Kearsley, geographer, director of Wilderness Research Foundation

 

"All temperature and weather observations indicate that the earth isn't like a greenhouse and that there is in reality no 'natural greenhouse effect' which could warm up the earth by its own emitted energy - a 'global warming effect'. With or without atmosphere every body looses heat, gets inevitably colder... The hypothesis of a natural and a man-made 'greenhouse effect', like eugenics, belongs to the category 'scientific errors."

Wolfgang P. Thuene, former analyst and forecaster for the German Weather Service

 

"The global warming agenda is really about money, trading carbon credits and imposing carbon taxes."

Eric Roston

 

"Research data on climate change do not show that human use of hydrocarbons is harmful. To the contrary, there is good evidence that increased atmospheric carbon dioxide is environmentally helpful... [The Kyoto Treaty on Climate Change] would have very negative effects upon the technology of nations throughout the world, especially those that are currently attempting to lift from poverty and provide opportunities to the over 4 billion people in technologically underdeveloped countries."

Frederick Seitz, Past President, U.S. National Academy of Sciences

 

"Even doubling or tripling the amount of carbon dioxide will virtually have little impact [on global temperature] as water vapour and water condensed on particles as clouds dominate the worldwide scene and always will."

Geoffrey G. Duffy, Scientist, Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering of the University of Auckland, New Zealand

 

"Because CO2 is slightly soluble in water and will come back to the Earth with precipitation, nature corrects for any excess, just as it does with other excess materials from volcanoes and forest fires. Nature recycles all of what it considers excess very efficiently."

Sherwood Thoele, analytical chemist and mathematician

 

"The hypothesis that the global warming of the past decades is man-made is based on the results of calculations with climate models in which the main influence on climate is not included. The most important climate driver comes from the interplay of solar activity, interplanetary magnetic field strength, cosmic radiation intensity, and cloud cover of the Earth atmosphere."

Gerhard Lobert, physicist, Recipient of The Needle of Honor of German Aeronautics

 

"There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth."

Jon Hartzler, retired science professor from St. Cloud State University

 

"CO2 emissions make absolutely no difference [in global temperature] one way or another. Every scientist knows this, but it doesn't pay to say so. Global warming, as a political vehicle, keeps Europeans in the driver's seat and developing nations walking barefoot."

Takeda Kunihiko, vice-chancellor of the Institute of Science and Technology Research at Chubu University, Japan

 

"There is no evidence that carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is driving surface temperature, and there is plenty of evidence to show that current levels of temperature and carbon dioxide are neither extreme nor of concern... It is unbelievable that many in politics and the media are whipping up public hysteria about 'global warming' when the best evidence suggests that for the 100 years ending in the year 2000, the century of coal, steel, electricity, the internal combustion engine, jet planes, two world wars and a population explosion, the average surface temperature rose by only 0.6 deg, and there has been no increase in temperature since 1998."

Viv Forbes, geologist

 

"Global warming fears are the worst scientific scandal in history. When people come to know what the truth is, they will feel deceived by science and scientists."

Kiminori Itoh, member of IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), award-winning environmental physical chemist

 

"More important than CO2 is the interaction of solar activity (solar winds) with penetrating cosmic rays into the earth's atmosphere. When cosmic ray activity is great, a large volume of rays penetrate the earth's lower atmosphere and contribute to cloud formation and cool the earth. However, when there is a lot of solar activity, solar winds tend to blow away just enough of the cosmic rays to thwart cloud formation at the lower levels resulting in fewer clouds and global warming. This phenomenon can be documented over hundreds if not thousands of years - well before humans were able to affect atmosphere."

Terry Wimberley, professor of Ecological Studies

 

"Human CO2 emissions are insignificant compared to total natural greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, lowering human CO2 emissions will have no measurable effect on climate, and continued CO2 emissions will have little or no effect on future temperature... While controlling CO2 emissions from burning fossil fuels may have some beneficial effects on air quality, it will have no measurable effect on climate, but great detrimental effects on the economy and our standard of living."

Jonathan DuHamel, geologist

 

"Fossils from the Holocene Era reveal a northern tree line approaching the Arctic Ocean. Surely it was warm enough then to preclude pack ice, and perhaps summer ice, from natural causes, and at only three-quarters of today's carbon-dioxide level... Climate that seems unusual, but falls within the natural envelope of past climate, is no proof of man-made global warming."

Claude Culross, organic chemistry

 

"On the differences between astronomy and astrology, both use the same data of the relative positions and motions of the earth, sun, moon, planets and stars; both have long complex calculations; both result in numerical answers. In the case of astronomy, the numbers have a scientific meaning; in the case of astrology, they do not... The claim of doubling the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere resulting in global warming is more akin to astrology than it is to astronomy."

F. James Cripwell, physicist, former scientist with UK's Cavendish Laboratory

 

"Geologists and paleo-climatologists know that in the past the Earth's temperature has been substantially warmer than it is today, and that this warming has occurred under purely natural circumstances."

Greg Benson, earth scientist, geologic study/geologic modeling

 

"The press promotes the global warming alarmists and ignores or minimizes those who are skeptical. To many of us, there is no convincing evidence that carbon dioxide produced by humans has any influence on the Earth's climate."

Mark L. Campbell, professor of chemistry at the U.S. Naval Academy

 

"The new green left environmentalist propaganda reminds me of the old red left communist propaganda. The dirty word is now carbon rather than capitalism. The game is simply to intrude and control everything."

Vincent U. Muirhead, professor emeritus of aerospace engineering, University of Kansas

 

"There would be more vocal skeptics of global warming if they were not afraid of losing funding, much of which is controlled by politically correct organizations."

Peter Friedman, mechanical engineer

 

"Scientists and activists alike have jumped on the global warming bandwagon. It's become a fad, a trend, a wave of enthusiasm, and the scientists are going along with the fad to get research grants and the media limelight... The facts, such as we can observe and calculate them, do not support the idea of man-made global warming."

William Hunt, research scientist National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

 

"The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Cllimate Change) climate change documents do not provide an objective assessment of the earth's temperature trends and associated climate change.
... An increasing number of scientists are now questioning the hypothesis of Greenhouse gas induced warming of the earth's surface."

Madhav L. Khandekar, UN scientist and retired Environment Canada scientist

 

"There is an irrational basis regarding the current scare over global warming... Compared to solar magnetic fields, carbon dioxide production has as much influence on climate as a flea has on the weight of an elephant."

Oliver K. Manuel, professor of nuclear chemistry

 

"Is global warming something unusual, say, in the last two thousand years?... There was a global warming in medieval times, during the years between 800 and 1300. And that made Greenland, - now covered with ice - green, christened by the Vikings with the name - 'Greenland.'"

Rosa Compagnucci, researcher with the National Science and Technology Commission, Argentina

 

"Dire predictions of catastrophe from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, are based solely on computer models that amount to poorly crafted mathematical opinions, not experimental proof... There is no proof that man-made carbon dioxide causes additional warming, or that carbon-dioxide reduction would reduce warming."

Claude Culross, organic chemist

 

"NASA should be at the forefront in the collection of scientific evidence and debunking the current hysteria over human-caused or Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW). Unfortunately, it is becoming just another agency caught up in the politics of global warming, or worse, politicized science."

Walter Cunningham, NASA astronaut/physicist

 

"The sun is the primary source of energy impacting the earth's surface. That energy heats the land and the seas, which then warm the air above them. Water vapor and other gases in the atmosphere also affect temperature... Oceans are the main repository for CO2. They release CO2 as their temperature rises. This strongly suggests that warming oceans - heated by the sun - are a major contributor to CO2 in the atmosphere."

John Takeuchi, meteorologist

 

"At a time when advocates of man-made global warming continue to push government policies to restrict energy use and the burning of fossil fuels in order to prevent 'catastrophic' warming, the world continues to cool....That is leading to increasing scepticism that the call to sacrifice living standards in order to "save the planet" is just political spin designed to persuade the public to accept green taxes."

Muriel Newman, mathematician and member of the Northland Conservation Board

 

"In Europe, where climate change absolutism is at its strongest, the quasi-religion of greenery in general and the climate change issue in particular have filled the vacuum of organised religion, with reasoned questioning of its mantras regarded as a form of blasphemy."

Nigel Lawson, former Chancellor of the Exchequer of UK

 

"Creating an ideology pegged to carbon dioxide is a dangerous nonsense. The present alarm on climate change is an instrument of social control, a pretext for major businesses and political battle. It became an ideology."

Delgado Domingos, environmental scientist

 

"Global warming is indeed a scam, perpetrated by scientists with vested interests."

Martin Keeley, geology scientist

 

"What I'd do with the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) report is to put it in the trash can because that's all it's worth....carbon dioxide was an insignificant component of the earth's atmosphere and that, rather than being the purveyor of doom it is currently viewed as today, it is needed in order for plants to grow."

Dennis Hollars, astrophysicist

 

"I was appalled at the behavior of many of those who helped produce the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) reports and by many of those who promote it. In particular I am referring to the arrogance; the activities aimed at shutting down debate; the outright fabrications; the mindless defense of bogus science, and the politicization of the IPCC process and the science process itself."

Roger W. Cohen, physicist

 

"I submit that there is no man-made global cooling/warming, that there is no study or research data that makes a good argument to that effect when carefully examined objectively, and that the Earth has many different and wide ranging cycles that man cannot control, no matter how much he would like to."

Sherwood Thoele, analytical chemist and mathematician

 

"As the glaciological and tree ring evidence shows, climate change is a natural phenomenon that has occurred many times in the past, both with the magnitude as well as with the time rate of the temperature change that have occurred in the recent decades."

Gerhard Lobert, physicist

 

"When it comes to science, never blindly accept an explanation from a politician or scientists who have turned political for their own private gain. Taxing carbon will have absolutely no beneficial effect on our climate, will hurt the economies of the world, and will be harmful to the production of food because less carbon dioxide means reduced plant growth."

Bob Ashworth, chemical engineer, authored a 2008 technical analysis of global warming

 

"For most of earth's history carbon dioxide level has been several times higher than the present....The conclusion from all this is that carbon dioxide change does not cause significant climate change. Actions to control the amount of non-condensing greenhouse gases that are added to the atmosphere are based on the mistaken assumption that global warming was caused by human activity."

Dan Pangburn, mechanical engineer, author of a climate research paper

 

"Atmospheric CO2 is absorbed by the oceans. Fires, volcanoes, and now man deposit CO2 into the atmosphere, but those effects are transient. What exists in steady state is CO2 perpetually pumped into the atmosphere by the oceans....Atmospheric CO2 is a dynamic stream, from the warm ocean and back into the cool ocean. Public policy represented by the Kyoto Accords and the efforts to reduce CO2 emissions should be scrapped as wasteful, unjustified, and futile."

Jeffrey A. Glassman, physicist and engineer

 

"Carbon dioxide is not responsible for the warming of the global climate over the last 150 years... More than 90 percent of climate fluctuations are due to the sun's activities themselves, such as the recently discovered 22-year cycles and sunspots."

Klaus P. Heiss, space engineer, NASA

 

"If the greenhouse effect didn't exist, life on this planet would be frozen?... Carbon dioxide is vital for life. Plants need it, and, in turn, give us oxygen. No CO2 means no plants, which means little oxygen for us. Certainly not enough to live on. Why, then, is CO2 called "pollution"?"

Kevin Lemanowicz, meteorologist

 

"Are global temperatures rising? Surely, they were rising from the late 1970s to 1998, but there has been no net global warming since 1998. Indeed, the more recent numbers show that there is now evidence of significant cooling... Mankind is responsible for just a fraction of one percent of the effect from greenhouse gases, and greenhouse gases are not responsible for most of what causes warming (e.g., the Sun)."

John Lott, Jr., research scientist

 

"As the climate change debate moves from the scientific to the political, it is important to stay with the facts. The bottom line is that humans cannot prevent global warming... We should not be carried away by misconceptions about what is driving climate change. It's with the Earth itself."

W.J. "Bill" Collins, professor, School of Earth and Environmental Sciences-James Cook University, Australia

 

"There is no proof that carbon dioxide is causing or precedes global warming... All indications are that the minor warming cycle finished in 2001 and that Arctic ice melting is related to cyclical orbit-tilt-axis changes in earth's angle to the sun."

John Williams, agricultural scientist, University of Melbourne, Australia

 

"Water vapor accounts for about 95 percent of earth's natural 'greenhouse' effect. Carbon dioxide gets all the attention because that is what is released in the burning of fossil fuels. Yet it accounts for less than 4 percent of the total greenhouse effect."

Karl Bohnak, meteorologist

 

"A consistent and significant correlation exists between the planet's temperature and the output of energy from the sun."

Leighton Steward, geologist

 

"Earth has cooled since 1998 in defiance of the predictions by the UN-IPCC.The global temperature for 2007 was the coldest in a decade and the coldest of the millennium, which is why 'global warming' is now called 'climate change.'"

Richard Keen, climatologist, Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences University of Colorado

 

"Non-believers in the greenhouse scenario are in the position of those long ago who doubted the existence of God. Fortunately for them, the Inquisition is no longer with us!"

Marcel Leroux, climatologist, director of the Laboratory of Climatology, Risks, and Environment in Lyon, France

 

"There was a concerted effort on the part of a small clique of elite scientists at the UN and in supporting institutions, governments and universities to concoct the climate change "consensus" to pressure governments and public opinion into supporting the political, economic and social agenda of elites.
This small group of scientists have for years been influential in driving the worldwide alarm over global warming ... not least through the role they play at the heart of the UN's Intergovernmental 'Panel on Climate Change'."

R. Warren Anderson and Dan Gainor

 

"The Rockefeller faction in the Anglo-American world began to prepare the Global Warming fraud - a fairy tale that oil from transportation vehicles or from coal fired plant emissions of CO2 are the cause of the gradual warming of the earth. However, no climate model takes into account the major influence on world climate: our Sun.

F. William Engdahl

 

"There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth."

Dr. Kunihiko, Chancellor of Japan's Institute of Science and Technology

 

"Accurate temperature records have been kept only since the end of the 19th Century, shortly after the world left the Little Ice Age. So while recorded temperatures are increasing, they are not the warmest ever. A 2003 study by Harvard and the Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics determined that the 20th century is neither the warmest century nor the century with the most extreme weather of the past 1,000 years.
... America and Europe had escaped a 500-year period of cooling, called the Little Ice Age, around 1850."

R. Warren Anderson and Dan Gainor

 

"Scientists who dissent from the [global warming] alarmism have seen their grant funds disappear, their work derided, and themselves labeled as industry stooges, scientific hacks or worse. Consequently, lies about climate change gain credence even when they fly in the face of the science that supposedly is their basis."

MIT meteorologist Richard S. Lindzen

 

"Print news media have warned of four separate climate changes in slightly more than 100 years ­ global cooling, warming, cooling again, and, perhaps not so finally, warming.Some current warming stories combine the concepts and claim the next ice age will be triggered by rising temperatures .
Recent global warming reports have continued that trend, morphing into a hybrid of both theories. News media that once touted the threat of "global warming" have moved on to the more flexible term "climate change."
The effect of the idea of "climate change" means that any major climate event can be blamed on global warming, supposedly driven by mankind."

R. Warren Anderson and Dan Gainor

 

"The suggestion that future hazardous climate events could in any way be mitigated by the control of carbon dioxide emissions is absurdity in the extreme."

"Compared to solar magnetic fields, the carbon dioxide production has as much influence on climate as a flea has on the weight of an elephant."

Dr. Oliver K Manuel, University of Missouri

 

"The hypothesis of current global warming resulting from the increased emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere is a myth. Humans are not responsible for the increase in the global surface temperature of 1 degree F = O.56 degree centigrade during the last century and one should explain this increase by the natural forces heating the atmosphere ... the anthropogenic impact on the global temperature is negligible."

O.G.Sorokhtin, G.V. Chilinger and L.F. Khilyuk ­ all PhD's and published authors in Earth Sciences

 

"Increase of carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere is not the cause of global warming which has a solar origin There exists no reliable scientific evidence that anthropogenic increase of the carbon dioxide concentration has caused current global warming or can lead to catastrophic changes of the Earth climate in the visible futureanthropogenic global warming is a Great Myth."

Habibullo I. Abdussamatov , Head of the Space Research Laboratory of the Russian Academies of Sciences' Pulkovo Observatory

 

"I am convinced that the current alarm over carbon dioxide is mistaken. Fears about man-made global warming are unwarranted and are not based on good science... I had the privilege of being fired by Al Gore, since I refused to go along with his alarmism."

Pentagon spokeswoman Victoria Clarke, March 24, 2003

President Harry Truman, August 9, 1945

 

HABEAS CORPUS

"The establishment of the writ of habeas corpus... are perhaps greater securities to liberty and republicanism than any it [the Constitution] contains .... The practice of arbitrary imprisonments have been, in all ages, the favorite and most formidable instruments of tyranny."

Alexander Hamilton in The Federalist #84 in August of 1788

 

"Even in 1215, the King of England was held to the standard of habeas corpus. I guess we want to turn the clock back to before the Magna Carta."

Senator Tom Harkin, 2007

 

"The 2006 Military Commissions Act authorizes the president to seize American citizens as enemy combatants, even if they have never left the United States. And once thrown into military prison, they cannot expect a trial by their peers or any other of the normal protections of the Bill of Rights.
Anyone designated an "enemy combatant" can be denied the right to habeas corpus. Habeas corpus petitions allow defendants to challenge their unlawful imprisonment and to seek their release if their cases were tried unfairly. By suspending habeas corpus, the new law takes human rights back to the thirteenth century."

Yale law professor Bruce Ackerman

 

"The American government could already be described as authoritarian... Due process of law and the right of habeas corpus, which for centuries have characterized the rule of law in democratic states, have been eliminated. At the discretion of the president, non-citizens and citizens alike may be classified as enemy combatants, picked up and held for an indeterminate period of time without access to counsel. A network of secret prisons and camps is being established both inside and outside of the United States. Paramilitary forces or private mercenary armies are being developed to make up for the inadequate numbers of the existing volunteer army. This is effectively resulting in the privatization of the US military."

William F. Pepper in his book "An Act of State: the Execution of Martin Luther King"

 

"September 29, 2006, the US Senate agreed to the Military Commissions Act of 2006 ... The new Act does 3 things:
1) Strips the right of detainees to habeas corpus (the traditional right of detainees to challenge their detention);
2) Gives the US President the power to detain indefinitely anyone-US or foreign nationals, from within the US, and from abroad-it deems to have provided material support to anti-US hostilities, and even use secret and coerced evidence (i.e. through use of torture) to try detainees who will be held in secret US military prisons;
3) Gives US officials immunity from prosecution for torturing detainees that were captured before the end of 2005 by US military and CIA."

Anup Shah, 2006

 

"The Military Commissions Act of 2006 effectively suspended habeas corpus and freed up the executive branch to designate any American citizen an "enemy combatant" forfeiting all privileges accorded under the Bill of Rights."

Christopher Ketcham, 2008

 

"The corporate media has ignored the fact that habeas corpus can now be suspended for anyone by order of the President. With the approval of Congress, the Military Commissions Act (MCA) of 2006, signed by Bush on October 17, 2006, allows for the suspension of habeas corpus for US citizens and non-citizens alike."

Peter Phillips and Mickey Huff, Project Censored, December 21, 2009

 

"Ever since Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and now Barack Obama, what we've learned is law means nothing to the executive branch in the US. They don't obey our own laws; they don't obey international law; they violate all the civil liberties and buried the principal of habeas corpus and the ability for a defendant to be legally represented."

Paul Craig Roberts, 2011
