There’s an old Puritan saw that goes something like “If it feels good, it’s probably wrong.” America has been feeling really good about the exploits of her Special Forces lately, but are we being manipulated towards a harmful end?
As soon as an institution becomes powerful, it gets controlled by those already in power.
Such is “the land of make believe” we know as “Hollywood”.
One of the few enterprises bigger than making movies is making war…with much more money to be made by those pulling the strings.
The problem is that, in a representative republic, the citizens can still get in the way, so keeping them anesthetized with sports or celebrity gossip usually takes care of that.
But some pesky upstarts may still awaken from their stupor to ask some vexing questions and then it’s time for Plan B: convince them that what you are doing is “patriotic” —it’s actually in their own best interest for you to use the bodies of their sons to enrich yourself.
For that, you’ll need a little movie magic.
I know what you’re thinking, punk. Hollywood is filled with radical Leftists who hate America and hate her military even more.
With directors like Oliver Stone who sympathize with Nazis, worship Communists and lambast “Conservatives” along with actors like Danny Glover and Sean Penn who go out of their way to do the same, your assessment would be spot on (Hugo Chavez just makes them get all gooey inside).
But, just like politics, what puppets are allowed to do in front of the cameras has nothing to do with the real power behind them and that power really likes war.
Ergo, war is what get’s the lion’s share of propaganda. The LA Times says the relationship between Hollywood and the military is far more incestuous than you know:
The Department of Defense regularly cooperates with Hollywood on projects large and small, from Lifetime’s fictional Army base-set series “Army Wives” and CBS’ naval police procedural “NCIS” to Paramount Pictures’ warring robots franchise “Transformers” and Sony’s Columbia Pictures film “Battle: Los Angeles,” about Marines fighting an alien invasion. The military has allowed Universal Pictures to film its upcoming action movie “Battleship” on the battleship Missouri and permitted Navy SEALs to appear in Relativity Media’s February thriller “Act of Valor.”
If you’re really on the ball you’ll notice that each new film highlights the particular piece of military hardware that’s under fire at the time. Transformers rewrote a key villain, “Starscream”, into an F-22. In fact, you’d think the Air Force had no other interceptors available just by watching that movie but it is a system that is plagued with problems to this very day.
As a patriotic American I mention this with sadness. I’ve seen the F-22 up close and it is an impressive thing to look at and hear. All real Americans are thrilled at seeing their military excel and be intimidating.
But is it “our” military? I submit to you that it has been generations since the United States military has been used in the best interests of American people and that the bloodsucking Elites who have been calling the shots these past several decades hate both America and her military. Yet they are riding them both as surely as the Whore of Babylon rides her Beast in Revelation 17.
The synchronicity of all these agendas can best be seen in the story of Jessica Lynch. Lynch was a motor transportation Specialist in the Army on a convoy through Nassiriya, Iraq when that convoy made a wrong turn.
That’s all we were told at the time.
Then the official story came out that, yes, her 9 other comrades were killed but she made a valiant stand, holding off jihadi hordes until she ran out of ammo and was then captured.
Lynch Kept Firing Until She Ran Out Of Ammo – Washington Post
What actually happened was far less inspiring and far more disturbing; Lynch was taken without having ever fired a shot, witnessed the execution of fellow soldiers like Lori Piestewa and then was repeatedly tortured, raped and sodomized by her captors.
But that doesn’t play well when you have an agenda to feed the Machine of War with new recruits and simultaneously weaken the American military by encouraging a massive influx of women and homosexuals into the warrior ranks. It is actually a well-known subversive tactic that is corroborated by former Communists like David Horowitz:
“The military is a linchpin for all of society. It is a bastion of traditional values. Former communist David Horowitz recalls that during the ‘60s, radical Leftists determined that if they could destroy the U.S. military, they could destabilize the rest of capitalist America. Two things could accomplish this, they said: Putting women into combat, and opening the armed forces to homosexuality.”
So when it came time to rescue Jessica the military/entertainment complex sought the very best in make believe via Hollywood Director Jerry Bruckheimer. Although Lynch ended up in a safe hospital bed with good care in a town deserted by Iraqi fighters, the military put on a show worthy of Tinsletown. The U.K. Guardian reported of the event:
The doctors told us [Dr. Harith al-Houssona] that the day before the special forces swooped on the hospital the Iraqi military had fled. Hassam Hamoud, a waiter at a local restaurant, said he saw the American advance party land in the town. He said the team’s Arabic interpreter asked him where the hospital was. “He asked: ‘Are there any Fedayeen over there?’ and I said, ‘No’.” All the same, the next day “America’s finest warriors” descended on the building.
“We heard the noise of helicopters,” says Dr Anmar Uday. He says that they must have known there would be no resistance. “We were surprised. Why do this? There was no military, there were no soldiers in the hospital.”
“It was like a Hollywood film. They cried, ‘Go, go, go’, with guns and blanks and the sound of explosions. They made a show – an action movie like Sylvester Stallone or Jackie Chan, with jumping and shouting, breaking down doors.” All the time with the camera rolling. The Americans took no chances, restraining doctors and a patient who was handcuffed to a bed frame.
I’ve trained with the Special Forces. Many (perhaps even most) truly are a breed apart. Most of those who deploy come back to be the literal embodiment of the moniker “quiet professionals”. Having been there and done that, they have nothing to prove. With few exceptions, they’ve’ been a pleasure to work with and talk to.
They’re also good at thinking outside the box. If there’s a bureaucrat or a regulation in between an operator and his goal they usually disappear or are circumvented. There is a low threshold for getting “stuck on stupid”.
The good news for the Special Forces community is that, in today’s conflicts, they are logarithmically more important to governments than a regular Infantryman because much of what they do can be hidden from the public and, although Special Forces teams are outmanned everywhere they go, they pack a surprising punch and usually get the best in support.
The bad news is that the people giving the orders are malicious, malignant traitors who care only for their own aggrandizement. The generals, admirals and politicians who never wore a Special Forces tab (and some who did) wouldn’t think twice about betraying every last one of them.
You need not look past the “death” of CIA asset Tim Osmond for proof of that. He was known to the rest of the world as “Osama bin Laden”.
As I’ve already chronicled, Barack Obama is, himself, an asset of the CIA who’s fabricated past is his Achilles’ heel, thanks to Article II Section 1 Paragraph 5 of the United States Constitution requiring “natural-born citizenship” of all presidential candidates.
The timing of the raid that supposedly killed Osama bin Laden was no coincidence. The White House released the Obama long-form birth certificate on April 27th, 2011. Four days later, the media cycle was radically changed by the story that Navy SEAL Team 6 had “bagged bin Laden”.
Obama’s Remarks on Birth Certificate Take on New Meaning
Michael Shear, NY Times
Last Wednesday, President Obama concluded his remarks about the release of his birth certificate by chiding his critics — and the press — with words that now seem far more ominous after the United States raid that killed Osama bin Laden.
“We do not have time for this kind of silliness,” Mr. Obama said. “We’ve got better stuff to do. I’ve got better stuff to do. We’ve got big problems to solve. And I’m confident we can solve them, but we’re going to have to focus on them — not on this.”
The fact that the most valuable intelligence asset of the decades-long “War on Terror” was killed on sight and then dumped in the ocean wasn’t the slightest bit difficult for corporate news anchors to swallow.
The conundrum didn’t matter to Democrats like former NM governor Bill Richardson who saw the killing of bin Laden as the political clout to further destroy American quality of life (and enrich the “global warming” crowd) via “climate change” restrictions.
The news of bin Laden’s demise was given on the Communist worker’s festival of “May Day”, the same date the death of Hitler was announced. As Illuminati watchdog blogger “Vigilant Citizen” noted, it has no small significance for pagans and occultists (which is what comprises the Elite).
But questions over the raid began immediately.
The Obama Administration released a dramatic photograph of the most powerful people in the world watching in real-time everything that happened during the raid. It was like a scene out of a movie.
And, like a movie, it was found out to have been completely staged.
Osama bin Laden Dead: Blackout During Raid On bin Laden Compound
Steven Swinford, Daily Telegraph [UK]
The head of the CIA admitted yesterday that there was no live video footage of the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound as further doubts emerged about the U.S. version of events.
Leon Panetta, director of the CIA, revealed there was a 25 minute blackout during which the live feed from cameras mounted on the helmets of the U.S. special forces was cut off.
A photograph released by the White House appeared to show President Barack Obama and his aides in the situation room watching the action as it unfolded. In fact they had little knowledge of what was happening in the compound.
In an interview with PBS, Mr. Panetta said: “Once those teams went into the compound I can tell you that there was a time period of almost 20 or 25 minutes where we really didn’t know just exactly what was going on. And there were some very tense moments as we were waiting for information.”
The Associated Press released a photograph of the dead terror mastermind…and then retracted it on the grounds that its veracity could not be verified.
NBC “News” assured us that just the photographic evidence was fake. Everything else the government told us was absolutely true.
But if a terrorist falls in Pakistan and there’s no evidence, does he make a sound?
—He does if you’re listening in THX.
THE LEGEND CONTINUES
Immediately, the entertainment industry jumped to trumpeting this momentous achievement with the gutsy “docu-drama” Zero Dark Thirty, which the National Board of Review and the New York Film Critics Circle quickly labeled “best film of the year” although even the Associated Press had to admit the accolades were a tad “early” for the award cycle.
But it did seem a bit odd that such a Left-leaning community would be all aflutter with America’s military victory over the nemesis of 9/11.
And such attention detail was shown! Why it was almost as if Hollywood and the government were working hand-in-hand.
It turns out, that’s exactly what happened.
Judicial Watch Obtains DOD and CIA Records Detailing Meetings with bin Laden Raid Filmmakers — Judicial Watch Press Release
Judicial Watch, the organization that investigates and fights government corruption, announced today that it has obtained records from the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) regarding meetings and communications between government agencies and Kathryn Bigelow, Academy Award-winning director of The Hurt Locker, and screenwriter Mark Boal. According to the records, the Obama Defense Department granted Bigelow and Boal access to a “planner, Operator and Commander of SEAL Team Six,” which was responsible for the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden, to assist Bigelow prepare her upcoming feature film.
Working to keep the lid on this secretive event seemed impossible for our dedicated government officials.
Apparently, the normally air-tight operational security sensors were caught completely off guard when former SEAL Mark Owen snuck out an “unauthorized account” of the raid. It was so embarrassing! The Pentagon had to issue special rules regarding the tell-all book. If any soldier were to get it as a gift, they were to immediately throw it away lest they read anything that might compromise the Homeland.
Would a Navy SEAL allow himself to be used to spread disinformation to the American people on behalf of an antagonistic administration? It depends on what you tell him. If you tell him, “Here’s the target, terminate on sight”, and then you tell him to “leak” a book about it, does he think it’s really “disinformation”? What if it wasn’t bin Laden, but it looked like him (a double or patsy)?
Operators should’ve sensed the red laser dot on their backs when one of their top secret helicopters crashed during the raid. It turned out to be an excellent opportunity for America’s enemies, like China, to get up to speed on her technology.
It was not the first time that America’s Chief Executive gifted her advantages to her enemies.
Once a SEAL becomes super-famous, you can use him for just about anything you’re able to sell to him. Take “the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history”, Chris Kyle. If you were to convince him that outspoken government skeptic and former Navy SEAL Jesse Ventura was being a nuisance then fabricating a story about Ventura celebrating the deaths of fellow SEALs wouldn’t be too much to ask.
The greatest champion of underground media—Glenn Beck—(who would never attack a source of real news or fellow “Truther” just to wave the flag or aggrandize himself) had his web site report with gusto Kyle’s story of having “punched out” the 6’4” former Minnesota Governor at a wake for fallen comrades. The story started to lose traction once it was found out that, not only did Ventura deny the incident ever happened, he was gathering other SEALs as witnesses for a defamation lawsuit.
Maybe it wasn’t such a good idea after all.
And, come to think of it, maybe exploiting Kyle’s fame wasn’t working out, either. Turns out, Kyle wasn’t a fan of Barack Obama or his gun control efforts.
It would be real inconvenient if Kyle were to go Tea Party and start spilling the beans. It would be better for all involved if he just disappeared.
—or got shot in the back at a gun range by someone with “Post Traumatic Stress Disorder”. An anonymous but verified source in the Marine Corps sent information to Alex Jones’ Prison Planet calling the official story on the suspect into question.
But what happened to Chris Kyle pales in comparison to the operators from “the Team that got bin Laden.”
DEAD SEALS TELL NO TALES (BUT THEY MAKE SAUDIS SMILE)
Less than 4 months after the announced death of Osama bin Laden, the Special Forces community was rocked by terrible news. As the Navy Times would put it: the biggest single loss ever suffered by the NSW community or in the 24-year history of U.S. Special Operations Command, occurred when a CH-47 Chinook helicopter with 22 SEALS from the bin Laden raid Team 6 along with 8 other Americans and a working dog went down.
Again, immediately questions arose as to the circumstances.
The official story was that the aircraft was downed by an insurgent firing an unguided rocket-propelled grenade that was able to single-handedly fell the massive helicopter although even ABC “News” had to admit:
On July 25 [earlier that year], a Chinook was hit by a rocket propelled grenade fired by the Taliban. It launched in the belly of the aircraft which made a hard landing and only two soldiers were injured in that attack but this time all on board were killed.
The most vociferous critics of the mission were the families of the fallen. Soon a star-studded panel was put together, including current and former Congressmen like Louie Gohmert and Allen West, retired Major General Paul Vallely and others, to examine the facts and some shocking allegations were made.
* instead of the top-of-the-line MH-47 Special Operations helicopter being used for the mission (as was Special Operations standard operating procedure), a National Guard Chinook was chosen whose airframe was near 50 years old.
* the Tangi Valley of Wardak Province in Afghanistan was a known Taliban stronghold, yet, again, standard operating procedures were abrogated and no attempts were made to suppress enemy actions.
* the mission was so high-priority and so dangerous that no one in-theater was allowed to make the call; it came from Washington, DC.
* Afghan commandos were pulled from the aircraft just prior to the flight without changing the manifest.
* customary over-watch flights by surveillance aircraft were cancelled or denied.
* the bodies of the victims were immediately cremated without the consent of the families with no proof that what was in each casket was the remains of the stated soldier or sailor. Autopsy reports were mistakenly leaked to family members proving that bodies being “burned or dismembered beyond recognition” as cause for the cremation was a lie.
* the aircraft black box was “lost” which is highly improbable.
Perhaps the most upsetting revelation to come to the bereaved was that an Islamic imam was appointed during the interning of the fallen who actually used the opportunity to curse them.
Maybe it’s too much a stretch to say that Barack Obama hates America and her military that much to order they be thrown into the teeth of the enemy the way David ordered Uriah, the husband of Bathsheba, to die at the walls of Rabbah.
Maybe it’s too much to believe that the SEALs were killed to keep them from giving up secrets about a raid that was scripted to take out a man who was already dead.
But what isn’t too hard for me to believe is that there is a long-standing relationship between the Royal House of Saud and the power brokers in American government based upon the “petro/dollar”. This relationship has been strengthened dramatically by the presidency of Barack Obama and his newest director of the CIA, John Brennan; a man who has converted to Islam in Saudi Arabia and who has already been on the Hajj to Mecca. It is not too far a stretch for me to believe that Barack Obama offered America’s brave sons to the Royal Family as payment for the loss in prestige through the public announcement of the death of the Saudi son of blood.
You’d think that after all of this, Special operators would be wary of getting in bed with Hollywood or blindly trusting their chain of command.
THE LEGEND CONTINUES FURTHER, BUT YOU WON’T LIKE WHERE IT’S HEADED
In 2005, Operation Red Wings was initiated in an attempt by U.S. Coalition forces to debilitate resistance in Afghanistan’s Kunar Province via killing or capturing Taliban leader Ahmad Shah. A 4-man Navy SEAL team consisting of Lieutenant Michael Murphy, Petty Officer Marcus Luttrell, Petty Officer Second Class Matt Axelson, and Petty Officer Second Class Danny Dietz was selected for the job but was compromised by roving shepherds during their infiltration. The team released the local nationals and were very quickly surrounded by Taliban forces as a result. They fought their way to extraction but only Marcus Luttrell survived the ordeal. Luttrell went on to write a book on the mission that turned in to another Hollywood major production starring Mark Wahlberg of the same title: Lone Survivor.
The movie has been a flashpoint of controversy across the blogosphere as the usual and unusual sources sing its praises while a handful of critics either timidly or arrogantly speak against it.
Again, Glenn Beck felt the need to sanctimoniously wade in to the arena with glowing praise for Luttrell and withering accusation of one of the movie’s admittedly “Libtard” detractors, Amy Nicholson. As reported by Beck’s web site:
In her article, Nicholson describes “Lone Survivor” as an embellished “jingoistic snuff film” with an attitude of “brown people bad, American people good.” She also claims the SEALs only faced around 10 enemy Taliban fighters, and seems to belittle the fact that Patrick Robinson helped write the book on which the film is based, because Luttrell was serving another tour of duty.
In addition to calling her a “vile, repugnant, and ignorant liar,” Beck took issue with the film critic’s “sanctimonious” attitude that somehow writing a book is more important than actually “living the story.”
“I mean this sincerely – I will fly you first class,” Beck said. “I will put you up at the Four Seasons … You will dine on the finest possible food, and you will come in here and you will sit down and speak these words to Marcus Luttrell. If you have the balls to say what you just said to Marcus Luttrell and back it up, go for it.”
All of this hype aside, we must again ask the question: why is the government/Hollywood complex so excited to have Americans puff up over the exploits of their Special Operators?
Award-winning journalist and editor Nick Turse recently did an exposé that was buried by all but Middle East Online regarding the disturbing increase in Special Operations proliferation around the world, particularly their use within the Continental United States under the combined combatant command known as “NORTHCOM”.
SOCOM is weaving a complex web of alliances with government agencies at home and militaries abroad to ensure that it’s at the center of every conceivable global hotspot and power center. …
Bringing the War Home
This year, Special Operations Command has plans to make major inroads into yet another country—the United States. The establishment of SOCNORTH in 2014, according to the command, is intended to help “defend North America by outpacing all threats, maintaining faith with our people, and supporting them in their times of greatest need.” Under the auspices of U.S. Northern Command, SOCNORTH will have responsibility for the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and portions of the Caribbean. …
“I have folks in every agency here in Washington, D.C. — from the CIA, to the FBI, to the National Security Agency, to the National Geospatial Agency, to the Defense Intelligence Agency,” [Special Operations Command head Admiral William] McRaven said during a panel discussion at Washington’s Wilson Center in 2013. Referring to the acronyms of the many agencies with which SOCOM has forged ties, McRaven continued: “If there are three letters, and in some cases four, I have a person there. And they have had a reciprocal agreement with us. I have somebody in my headquarters at Tampa.” Speaking at Ronald Reagan Library in November, he put the number of agencies where SOCOM is currently embedded at 38.
This is the same Willie McRaven who has so deftly avoided giving any assistance to the families of the fallen members of SEAL Team 6.
Karen Vaughn [mother of slain SEAL Aaron Vaughn] said military officials withheld information about the imam’s prayer ceremony and lied to her repeatedly about the investigation. She also said Admiral William McRaven, commander at U.S. Special Operations Command, blew up at her when she questioned him about withholding information.
“[McRaven] made the statement to [my husband and I] … that the military will never withhold any truth from the parents of a fallen soldiers,” said Karen Vaughn. “And I quickly said, not meaning any disrespect, ‘What about [fallen soldier, Corporal] Pat Tillman?’ And he nearly came across the table at me, flashed with anger, vessels popped out of his neck, and he said ‘What about Pat Tillman? That was simply a case of friendly fire.’”
“We knew at that point, our discussion was over,” she added. “And it was embarrassing that this was one of the highest ranking admirals in our Navy.”
Given that storybook hero Pat Tillman had become disillusioned with the war in Afghanistan shortly after arriving, and that the official story was proven to be fabricated contrivances (with the actual means of death being an M4 three-round-burst at close range into Tillman’s face), it’s no wonder the big, tough Admiral would attack a grieving mother. He was only defending himself!
Past examples of the use of Special Forces within the United States give little comfort.
In 1969, six year old Dennis Martin disappeared from the Great Smokey Mountains National Park. Special Forces (then known more commonly as “Green Berets”) arrived to assist in the search. When investigative journalist, author and former law enforcement officer David Paulides looked in to the disappearance for his recent book, he was stonewalled as to why the SF was used for a single missing child.
HOPE FOR THE FUTURE
The Special Forces are like any other powerful system in the military arsenal; when used by conscientious leaders, careful to employ them in the best interests of the American people they are without peer.
But when abused by traitors in leadership against United States citizens they can be an intimidating foe—perhaps helped in their ends by Right-minded rebels allowing such abuse because SF soldiers are so idolized.
Despite treachery from the top down, however, the Special Forces community can not be readily relied upon to carry out treasonous orders.
It has been my experience that those warriors closest to the tip of the spear—Marine Infantry, Army Rangers and Green Berets, Navy SEALs and Air Force TAC-Ps and Parajumpers—are most likely to take their responsibilities to the Constitution and to Americans seriously.
As I’ve shown, there are too many (especially in high office) who are willing to follow a malignant agenda. But if problems in America finally reach a boiling point, Patriots shouldn’t be surprised to find a quiet professional standing with them.
