“We knew well in advance that the Japanese was going to attack. It was a lie that we didn’t have direct radio communication with Washington, D.C.” ~ LT. Col. Clifford Andrew
December 7, 1941
It is critical to understand the hidden truth of history behind Pearl Harbor for it was so successful to get the Agenda of the power elite the desired outcome of getting the U.S. involved in WWII that further false false efforts to get us more involved in overseas war in Vietnam (Gulf of Tonkin), Operation Northwoods (Cuba) and of course 9/11. In fact the U.S. holds 5 out the 10 top false flag events in modern history. (Source)
The myth of the “sneak attack” on Pearl Harbor is a pillar of the “Greatest Generation” narrative that is the foundation of our interventionist foreign policy. That storyline goes something like this: we “saved” the world from the Axis powers, overcoming our “isolationist” inclinations, and went on to create a “world order” in which we established, forevermore, our duty and destiny to police the four corners of the earth and stand up for Goodness, Justice, andFair Play. Now that we know how FDR lied us into that war, however, the picture becomes a bit more complicated – and certainly less favorable to an American president described by Gen. Douglas MacArthur as a man who “never told the truth where a lie would suffice.
Most historians when pressed on the matter now grudgingly concede that Roosevelt lied when he told the American people that he would never send their boys to fight into foreign wars, but they excuse his treachery as a “noble lie,” a deception perpetrated against the public by the political elite to achieve a supposed greater good.Americans, who a year previously had been assured by Roosevelt that they would not be sent to fight foreign wars, suddenly found their fates transformed. The US military swelled, with 16 million heading off to war, and women took on new and more widespread roles in the workforce, and in the military.Washington became a global power base and the War Powers Act gave the president supreme executive authority. The “America First” movement, which had lobbied against the country’s entry into the war and at its peak had 800,000 members, disbanded within days.”December 7, 1941, was the powder-keg that changed the world. It changed America instantly from an isolationist country on the morning of December 7 to an internationalist country on the morning of December 8,” said Mr Shirley.*****
After the Manchurian Incident in 1931, the US proclaimed neutrality. US policy, on the other hand, was anything but neutral. The Occidental world feared a strong Japan because it would upset the balance of power and the western hegemony in the region. It would also threaten western corporate balance sheets. The US (along with the UK, France, Germany, the Soviets and others) supported China in the Second Sino-Japanese war.
FDR always wanted in the worst way to get into the war in Europe, but he knew neither Congress nor the American people would let him. Even after running through the various Neutrality Acts to Cash and Carry to Boats for Bases to Lend Lease, he couldn’t build sentiment for war. Even after he effectively declared War during his Fireside Chat on Sept 11, 1941, he couldn’t find the necessary votes. Well, if you can’t get in through the front door, try the rear windows, he reasoned. If Japan could be provoked into attacking, then the US would be at war with Japan and war with Germany would surely follow.
Some means by which such an attack could be provoked were laid out in the McCollum Memo. On October 7, 1940, Lieutenant Commander Arthur McCollum of the Office of Naval Intelligence submitted a memo to Navy Captains Walter Anderson and Dudley Knox.” The memo illustrated an eight step plan to provoke Japan into attacking the United States of America: Continue reading →
The number of 9/11 responders and others on the scene who have been diagnosed with cancer has tripled in less than three years, it has emerged. In January 2014 the number of people in the WTC Health Program with cancer was just 1,822. Now it’s a massive 5,441, with 6,378 separate cancers recorded. ‘It’s been steady for at least the last year and a half – we’re seeing new people here being certified for cancer 10-15 times week. That’s every week,’ Dr Michael Crane, medical director of the program, told the NY Post.
None of the shylocks being foisted upon the sleeping sheeple even mention war anymore,even though trillions are spent of our money while millions and millions have been killed from U.S. and the “Coalition of the Willing” under lies and falsehoods…and NO ONE is ever held responsible while we worry about cross gender bathrooms.
The Rev. Daniel J. Berrigan, a Jesuit priest and poet whose defiant protests helped shape the tactics of opposition to the Vietnam War and landed him in prison, died on Saturday in the Bronx. He was 94.
His death, at Murray-Weigel Hall, the Jesuit infirmary at Fordham University, was confirmed by the Rev. James Martin, editor at large at America magazine, a national Catholic magazine published by the Jesuits.
The United States was tearing itself apart over civil rights and the war in Southeast Asia when Father Berrigan emerged in the 1960s as an intellectual star of the Roman Catholic “new left,” articulating a view that racism and poverty, militarism and capitalist greed were interconnected pieces of the same big problem: an unjust society.
It was an essentially religious position, based on a stringent reading of the Scriptures that some called pure and others radical. But it would have explosive political consequences as Father Berrigan; his brother Philip, a Josephite priest; and their allies took their case to the streets with rising disregard for the law or their personal fortunes.
A defining point was the burning of Selective Service draft records in Catonsville, Md., and the subsequent trial of the so-called Catonsville Nine, a sequence of events that inspired an escalation of protests across the country; there were marches, sit-ins, the public burning of draft cards and other acts of civil disobedience.
The catalyzing episode occurred on May 17, 1968, six weeks after the murder of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the outbreak of new riots in dozens of cities. Nine Catholic activists, led by Daniel and Philip Berrigan, entered a Knights of Columbus building in Catonsville and went up to the second floor, where the local draft board had offices. In front of astonished clerks, they seized hundreds of draft records, carried them down to the parking lot and set them on fire with homemade napalm.
Some reporters had been told of the raid in advance. They were given a statement that said in part, “We destroy these draft records not only because they exploit our young men but because they represent misplaced power concentrated in the ruling class of America.” It added, “We confront the Catholic Church, other Christian bodies and the synagogues of America with their silence and cowardice in the face of our country’s crimes.”
In a year sick with images of destruction, from the Tet offensive in Vietnam to the murder of Dr. King, a scene was recorded that had been contrived to shock people to attention, and did so. When the police came, the trespassers were praying in the parking lot, led by two middle-aged men in clerical collars: the big, craggy Philip, a decorated hero of World War II, and the ascetic Daniel, waiting peacefully to be led into the van.
Protests and Arrests
In the years to come, well into his 80s, Daniel Berrigan was arrested time and again, for greater or lesser offenses: in 1980, for taking part in the Plowshares raid on a General Electric missile plant in King of Prussia, Pa., where the Berrigan brothers and others rained hammer blows on missile warheads; in 2006, for blocking the entrance to the Intrepid naval museum in Manhattan.
“The day after I’m embalmed,” he said in 2001, on his 80th birthday, “that’s when I’ll give it up.”
