Newsbud Exclusive- The Out of Control U.S. War Industry!

The U.S. war industry is out of control. It has been since 1945. It finances political campaigns, thereby purchasing loyalty from elected officials. It funds the D.C. think tanks, thereby controlling the narrative and ensuring new ‘threats’ are always hyped. It advertises on national media, thereby forestalling the slim chance a corporate journalist might bravely challenge the need for endless war. It is up to an educated citizenry to remedy this situation. Understanding the following contracts, which have been issued since the start of 2018, is a crucial part of forming an educated, mobilized citizenry.

On January second, Georgia Tech received $7,190,037 to maintain and improve the information systems that support the Special Access Programs (SAPs), nominally controlled by the Secretary of Defense. SAPs are numerous, often redundant, and compartmentalized to the extreme. Worse yet, there is not a single person in the U.S. government who has access to, let alone understands, all of the SAPs out there.

What does this mean? It means that the U.S. government bureaucracy, specifically the so-called intelligence community, is out of control. The intelligence community is not a benevolent protector. It is a bloated, privatized beast. It is a giant boulder rolling down a slippery hill – sucking up greenbacks as it goes – and trampling the rights of every person on the planet, regardless of citizenship or country of origin.

What are the implications of Georgia Tech’s role? Instead of focusing on programs of social uplift or peaceful scientific advancement, Georgia Tech continues U.S. academia’s disgusting tradition of supporting Pentagon research priorities. It also means that SAPs are even more vulnerable to the United States’ official enemies; outsourcing maintenance of Special Access Programs leads to less oversight, weaker operational security, and greater opportunity for espionage. No matter how you slice it, this contract ultimately spells disaster for all parties involved.

On January twelfth, Sotera Defense Solutions received $10,271,933 for work on a DARPA project titled "Technology Demonstrations & Assessments Using a Data Science Approach to Situation Understanding for Counter Insurgency Operations.” Known simply as “TDA for COIN,” this project provides the cesspool known as Washington, D.C., with yet another means by which to control and exploit targeted populations.

Sure, right now DARPA counter-insurgency programs are largely aimed overseas. The Pentagon has, after all, spent the last decade and a half churning through the best bad guys a war corporation could desire, the menacing Arab savage. Now the war industry is back to square one, the fearsome Russian. It is only a matter of time before the industry runs out of tried and true baddies and commits fully to searching the “Homeland” for other threats. Everyone is a suspect.

The next U.S. revolution will feature the people against the oligarchy. By the time it arrives, those in authority will turn technology like “TDA for COIN” inward against the U.S. populace. All of your electronic data is already being stored, sifted, and analyzed. Programs like the ones Sotera is helping design will facilitate oppression of a rising citizenry. But by the time revolution rolls around, the technological playing field will be so lopsided that the public versus the oligarchical government will be akin to a junior varsity high school team scrimmaging professional All-Stars.

On January twenty-third, Lockheed Martin received $33,916,629 to introduce a “potentially virulent code” on the national cyber range “without compromising the range.” Lockheed Martin will then study the effects. What could possibly go wrong? Context is important. Lockheed Martin and her ilk profit from fear and global instability. Furthermore, the Pentagon exists to serve the war industry, not the other way around. Given that context, this contract clearly allows the primary beneficiary of crisis and war to be in a position to manufacture more crises and pretexts for war. Regrettably, the Pentagon demonstrates that it is perfectly willing to allow the fox to guard the henhouse. Though, in this case, the fox is shaking the very foundations of the entire farm in order to sustain wanton profit. A government for the people and by the people would never allow these greedy corporations to tinker with cyber vulnerabilities on a national scale.

On January thirtieth, Lockheed Martin received $80,250,000 to ramp up Hellfire production capacity to 11,000 missiles per year. The U.S. war industry has been operating at full steam for the past seventeen years. Now, this contract tells us, war industry giants believe there is a reason coming down the pike to increase production capacity. Is it war with Iran? Expanded operations in AFRICOM? A full-fledged shift against President Assad’s forces in Syria? An all-out assault on North Korean artillery? The U.S. war industry is expecting more sustained, high-tempo hostilities in the not-too-distant future. You’ve been warned.

On January thirty-first, Boeing received a $6.5 billion extension to develop Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD), bringing total expenditures to over $12 billion on this contract alone. GMD is part of the United States’ ballistic missile defense system (BMDS). True to form, the Pentagon awarded this contract without free, open, or fair competition. Mishandling U.S. taxpayer dollars is par for the course.

Two facts must be stressed before embarking on any rational discussion of ballistic missile defense. Firstly, neither Iran nor North Korea – the two countries that war industry think tanks cite as ‘threats’ to the continental United States – possesses the capability to reach the U.S. mainland. Secondly, BMDS is one of the biggest cash cows in the U.S. war industry portfolio. It is designed to be a cash cow. And the results are calculatingly dismal; even in highly controlled tests where the Missile Defense Agency knows every important detail (including launch site, pre-planned trajectory, range, and missile type), MDA still can’t hit the incoming ballistic missile with any regularity. The whole point of the system is to hoard taxpayer dollars with no accountability. It’s working like a charm, from the boardroom’s perspective.

What makes this contract really disturbing? The United States boasts the worst wealth gap in the nation’s history. Millions of U.S. Americans live in poverty, don’t have enough to eat, lack affordable housing, and are denied adequate educational opportunities. The money behind this Pentagon contract could have helped. Divide $12 billion a million ways. That’s a good chunk of change for those in need. Instead, U.S. Congress opts for corporate welfare; the war industry is stealing billions from the people. This is a criminal enterprise, plain and simple.

The U.S. war industry is out of control. Only an educated citizenry can remedy the situation. Understanding how the war industry operates is just one step towards achieving peace and economic justice in our lifetime.

Newsbud Exclusive – War Is A Racket: Killing For State Purposes Is Now In Corporate Hands!

Corporations rule the U.S. government. Nowhere is this more obvious than in the Pentagon, where corporate contractors have completely seized the basic functions of what were once inherently governmental occupations: Preparation for war and fighting war. Killing for state purposes is now in corporate hands.

The following documents contain detailed summaries of how key corporations assist the U.S. Department of War. The notes span all of 2017. The information presented was distilled from the Pentagon’s daily contracts. (The information is robust yet incomplete, since the Pentagon is not transparent or forthcoming in the details of many contracts). We provide these distillations as resources for investigative journalists and engaged citizens alike.

The notes do not include the Big Seven: Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, Textron, General Dynamics, and United Technologies. The players listed below are not as well known, though they are still favorites of the Pentagon. Their activities are as diverse as their profits are lavish. Their services – aircraft maintenance, cyber, information technology, base support, and much more – are just a sliver of the U.S. government’s overall war portfolio. War is a racket, and the wars will never end as long as Washington, D.C., maintains a standing war industry.

Assessing U.S. Efforts to Counter Hezbollah

It’s official. The war train rolls on. The pliable cesspool known as Washington, D.C., is ready to wage war against Hezbollah. What pushed D.C. aboard? The perverse confluence of pressure from the Zionist lobby, Mossad, and the U.S. war industry – all groups whose constituencies will benefit from U.S. action against Hezbollah.

Nathan A. Sales and Nicholas J. Rasmussen are the public face leading the push for war against Hezbollah, but who are these men?

Ambassador-at-Large for Counterterrorism at the U.S. State Department, Nathan Sales embodies the militarization of U.S. diplomacy. An enemy of the people, Sales helped draft the PATRIOT Act, a despotic piece of legislation through which the U.S. Surveillance State shredded the Fourth Amendment and entrenched endless war. He is the apotheosis of post-9.11 terrorism punditry; his qualifications include wearing a suit & tie and manipulating legalese to advance interminable war.

Sales puts a price on the heads of “two senior Hezbollah leaders,” butchering their names in the process. Meanwhile, he lets far greater war criminals off the hook. Sales then claims with a straight face that Hezbollah “has no political wing,” even though Hezbollah is currently an integral part of Lebanese parliament. He claims without a hint of irony that the Iranian people suffer because Tehran funds Hezbollah, while refusing to acknowledge that the U.S. war machine is gobbling up over $1 trillion a year.

Nicholas J. Rasmussen is Director of the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), a perverse amalgam of officials splashing around the Military-Industrial-Intelligence Complex trough. The vast majority of officials who go to work everyday at NCTC lack any field experience. They are frothy administrators and technicians. They sit at desks, cubicles, and workstations. Their bosses are CACI, BAH, SAIC, ManTech, and other corporate profiteers. Victor Marchetti and John D. Marks remind us: “Today the vast majority of those in the spy business are faceless desk-bound bureaucrats, far removed from the world of the secret agent.” This problem has only gotten worse in the forty years since those words were first printed.

Rasmussen has no hands-on counterintelligence field training whatsoever. This makes him the perfect official to help guide the D.C. bureaucracy against Hezbollah. He couldn’t tell a Mossad agent from a Home Depot cashier. He honed his bureaucratic skills under veteran AIPAC operative Dennis Ross – the necessary boost in Rasmussen’s career after which he entered the elite strata of the Beltway desk jockeys.

Nicholas Rasmussen claims Hezbollah is engaged in “worldwide terror activities.” Prior to 11 September 2001, according to Rasmussen, Hezbollah “was responsible for the terrorism deaths of more U.S. citizens than any other foreign terrorist organization.” He cites three attacks as evidence: the 1983 attack on the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, the 1983 attack on the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, and the 2012 attack on Israeli tourists in Bulgaria. Let’s take these events one by one.

The 1983 attack on the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut was not an act of terrorism, because it targeted a deployed military force. By definition, attacks on Armed Forces, which have traveled thousands of miles from home in order to interfere in the affairs of a sovereign nation, are not terrorist attacks.

The 1983 attack on the U.S. Embassy in Beirut was carried out by Harakat al-Jihad al-Islami, not Hezbollah, which, as we know, didn’t formally exist yet. Moreover, it took place in the context of U.S. espionage interference in the Lebanese Civil War. CIA, the world’s premier terror group in terms of dead bodies tallied up, was operating out of the U.S. Embassy to such an extent that the Agency was virtually blind in the region after the attack.

The first two of Rasmussen’s examples clearly hold no water.

Rasmussen’s final example, a 2012 attack on Israeli tourists, was not definitively a Hezbollah operation. Any evidence trying to pin blame on the Party was furnished by Mossad operatives either directly or through CIA lackeys. The 2012 attack was a success from Mossad’s point of view; it led to the European Union entering Hezbollah on its list of terrorist organizations. By deception Mossad wages war.

Rasmussen knows his talking points are shaky, so he resorts to a classic gambit: other instances of nefarious Hezbollah activity around the world are “unpublicized and remain classified,” he says. It’s the old ‘trust us because we know’ defense. If there were any actual undisclosed instances of nefarious Hezbollah activity, you can bet the U.S. war industry, Zionist hasbara aficionados, and career bureaucrats would have seized them as pretexts long ago.

Hezbollah is uniquely focused on countering Zionist aggression. This is why Washington, D.C., demonizes them. Washingtonians like Sales and Rasmussen will never give you such a frank assessment. Zionists want the United States to keep thinking Hezbollah is a terrorist organization in order to keep the U.S. fearful and pliable, because Zionists aim to have the United States fight Israel’s wars for her. Netanyahu was correct when he said the United States can be easily moved.

U.S. Congress is content going along for the ride against Hezbollah, because they are scared of AIPAC and because it is not Congress’ sons and daughters who will be doing the fighting. It will be the U.S. working class and those who have swallowed the war machine’s propaganda pills.

There are indeed career officials in U.S. intelligence agencies that loathe Zionism and have no desire to jump aboard the war train, but they are systematically marginalized and silenced. After all, there is always a Zionist political operative located strategically above them in the chain of command. For example, no rational voices were in the room when a Mossad delegation visited the Trump team in December 2016 and again in the summer of 2017. Such visits are just the tip of the Mossad iceberg; the Institute works best away from the spotlight.

The facts are clear yet omitted: Hezbollah poses no threat whatsoever to the United States. Hezbollah’s only quarrel with the United States is that Washington, D.C., funds and arms the Zionist cancer to the teeth. The Party is not a terrorist organization. It is an armed resistance group. Recent history supports these facts, as Hezbollah has defended Lebanese territory from Zionist and IS terrorists.

So here we are. The U.S. war machine has willingly received a course correction from a concerted Zionist lobbying and espionage effort. Where does it stop? When will U.S. decision-makers grow a backbone and give peace a chance?

Newsbud Exclusive Report- A Distillation of DOD Funding Priorities for September 2017

DOD spent $45,526,070,000+ on 681 individual contracts in September 2017

The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) spent at least $45,526,070,000 on 681 individual contracts during September 2017.  This amount does not include 52 Foreign Military Sales transactions worth $4,891,400,000.

The month of September marks the end of the Pentagon’s fiscal year, hence the uptick in the number of contracts issued.

Peruse the five PDF documents below. See for yourself how the Pentagon wastes U.S. tax dollars.

Foreign Military Sales, Drones, Combatant Commands, Academia

Fixed-wing and Rotary-wing Aircraft

Navy Ships, Boats, Vessels, & Equipment

Cyber, IT, Communications, Satellites, Ordnance, Gear, Training

Energy, Medicine, Transportation, Environment, Base Support, Construction

*Keep in mind, the corrupt U.S. Senate recently approved an $80 billion increase in annual Pentagon spending. For what? More waste. More war. More death.

Newsbud Exclusive- Pentagon & Millennial Propaganda

Here’s How Pentagon’s Millennial Propaganda Works

The National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 amended the Smith-Mundt Act and effectively killed any nominal restraints on the use of propaganda against domestic audiences. Since then the Pentagon has had free rein to win over U.S. hearts and minds, spending extra effort to target the millennial crowd. Late Night with Seth Meyers is just one example of many illustrating how well the Pentagon has stepped up its game.

The Pentagon has stepped up its propaganda game in the Internet age. Tapping into the millennial mind requires more than hackneyed advertisements and catchy slogans. It requires celebrity, humor, and flattery. Seth Meyers, the host of Late Night, is happy to help out.

How does millennial propaganda work?

Meyers sets the stage by framing those in uniform as “our nation’s armed forces,” when in reality they exist to fight for corporate interest, to take out regional competitors of Israel, and to keep the oil flowing. The U.S. war budget is a direct transfer of roughly $1 trillion each year into war corporations. In other words, the funds are public but the profits are private. Members of the U.S. military are anything but “our nation’s armed forces.”

Meyers then effectively portrays the Secretary of War, a position occupied at the time by Ashton Carter, as an avuncular soul. Carter performs well. He switches fluidly between grinning buffoon and goodhearted protector. This is a deliberate deception. Carter spent most of his life in service of the war machine, using his formidable brainpower to provide research, policy analysis, and academic backing.

Nowhere is the Pentagon’s environmental destruction mentioned. Nowhere is Carter’s body count mentioned. Civilian deaths in Yemen, Libya, Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Syria, and the Philippines, are deliberately excluded when pulling the wool over the eyes of sensitive millennials. Nowhere does this slick propaganda piece mention Carter’s coopting of Silicon Valley, his support for the Egyptian dictator, his expansion of USAFRICOM, or his avid love for the Saudi regime. Well done.

Jokes abound. They’re well placed, designed to obviate any criticism of Pentagon policy. Meyers jokes about invading sovereign nations, which the Pentagon actually does with unamusing regularity. Meyers jokes about weak nuclear security, even though lapses in the security of the U.S. arsenal are no laughing matter. (Upon discovering terrible security practices, the Pentagon just declares the status of its nuclear incompetence a secret.)

Meyers frequently reminds the viewer that the Pentagon is home to “two-hundred and eighty four bathrooms,” but conveniently omits the fact that numerous extra bathrooms were included in the building’s design in order to comply with Virginia’s racist segregation laws (Carroll, p. 4). Meyers should have instead stated that the Pentagon is home to 24,000 bureaucrats who would better serve the country and the world by becoming teachers, doctors, farmers, and firefighters.

Seth Meyers remarks, “One of the great things about the Pentagon are all the interesting items they have on display.” He then shows the personal property of a leader whose country the Pentagon destroyed during an illegal war. Not included in the display cases are: 1) the corpses of the more than 1 million Iraqis who lost their lives as a direct result of the Pentagon’s actions; 2) splintered shells of U.S. ordnance launched from unmanned aerial vehicles against civilians and gangs in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and throughout the Greater Middle East; 3) soil and water samples from towns the Pentagon polluted; 4) the bodies of U.S. pawns who died overseas, images of which Pentagon policy conceals unless families of the deceased request an exemption; 5) pictures of the thousands of veterans who have taken their own lives after being used and abused by the U.S. war machine.

During the question and answer session, Secretary of War Ashton Carter admits that he wants to appeal to the 18-24 year old demographic. He then calls the U.S. military the “finest fighting force the world has ever known,” yet the Pentagon hasn’t won a single war in the lifetime of a twenty-four year old.

Hats off to the tag team of Carter and Meyers. Their ruse has worked, judging by the live audience’s reactions and the enthusiastic comment section below the video. The Pentagon dictates the terms, and the U.S. populace largely accepts its disinformation and outright lies. The lesson is clear: we have to learn to see through the Pentagon’s propaganda if we ever want to live in a world without war.
