Operation Northwoods: A true U.S. government conspiracy for those who mock conspiracy theories

Fellowship of the Minds

The next time someone heaps scorn on you, making fun of your suspicions about the federal government by calling you a “conspiracy theorist,” show this post to your mocker.

The term “false flag” has its origins in naval warfare where a flag other than the belligerent’s true battle flag is used as a ruse de guerre or pretext for war. As the term is used in contemporary America, a “false flag” incident is some traumatic event that is contrived and manipulated by the authorities to achieve some covert agenda. The public is given an untruthful version of the event by government and/or the media. The intended result is a “rallying around the flag” effect, wherein an inflamed and duped populace rally in support of the government’s secret agenda.

Admittedly, it is difficult for the ordinary American to think the U.S. government can stoop so low as to instigate…

Military-aviation website forecasts economic collapse & massive depopulation for U.S. by 2025

Deagel.com, a military equipment and civil aviation guide website, is causing a buzz on the Internet for its dire forecast that in a mere 10 years, by the year 2025, the United States would be unrecognizable, a shadow of its former self. Specifically, the U.S.’s:

  • Population will be reduced by 254 million (or 78%), plummeting from today’s 318,890,000 to 64,879,100.
  • GDP will be reduced by $16.54 trillion, plummeting from today’s $17.42 trillion to $881.804 billion.
  • Power purchase parity will be reduced by $45,739, plummeting from today’s $54,800 to $9,061.

What is Deagle.com? Wikipedia does not have an entry on Deagle.com. This is what the precious metals website Silver Doctors says about Deagle.com:

Deagel.com is a military equipment and civil aviation guide website. I have spent time trying to figure out who is behind iit and whether or not it is legitimate – and what the purpose of it is. Certainly it seems legitimate as a catalog of military equipment, the corporations which manufacture the equipment and the Government organizations involved with anything related to the military.

Here’s a screenshot of Deagle.com’s home page (click to enlarge):

Deagle.com1

In a statement about its forecast, Deagle.com claims that:

  • Its forecasts employ mainly data from two sources:
    • Institutions such as the CIA, IMF, UN, and USG (U.S. government).
    • “Shadow sources such as Internet gurus, unsigned reports and others.”
  • Governments lie. Like the economic lies that communist regimes told their people and the world, present-day governments of seemingly-affluent countries like the United States also generate fake statistics about their economies.
  • The implosion of the U.S. will be triggered by a financial and economic collapse.
  • That, in turn, will result in a massive loss of population from deaths and out-migration.

Here’s Deagle.com’s statement in its entirety:

There have been many questions about the countries forecast specially the one focusing on the United States of America (USA). They won’t be answered one by one but below you can find some explanation, thoughts and reflections. We are going to keep this as short as possible. The majority of the economic and demographic data used in the making of the forecasts is widely available by institutions such as the CIA, IMF, UN, USG, etc. You can see the most relevant data at every single country’s page. There is a tiny part of data coming from a variety of shadow sources such as Internet gurus, unsigned reports and others. But all these sources are from the internet and are of public domain for at least a minority. For example, several years ago Dagong, the Chinese ratings agency, published a report analyzing the physical economy of the States comparing it with those of China, Germany and Japan. The conclusion was that the US GDP was something between $5 to $10 trillion instead of $15 trillion as officially reported by the USG. We assume that the official data, especially economic, released by governments is fake, cooked or distorted in some degree. Historically it is well known that the former Soviet Union was making up fake statistics years before its collapse. Western as well as other countries are making up their numbers today to conceal their real state of affairs. We are sure that many people out there can find government statistics in their own countries that by their own personal experience are hard to believe or are so optimistic that may belong to a different country. Despite the numeric data “quantity” there is a “quality” model which has not a direct translation into numeric data. The 2014 strain of Ebola has a death rate of 50-60% but try to imagine what would happen if there is a pandemic of Ebola with hundreds of thousands or millions infected with the virus. So far the few cases of Ebola-infected people have “enjoyed” intensive healthcare with anti-viral and breathing assistance but above all with abundant human support by Physicians and nurses. In a pandemic scenario that kind of healthcare won’t be available for the overwhelming number of infected leading to a dramatic increase of the death rate due to the lack of proper healthcare. The “quality” factor is that the death rate could increase to 80-90% in a pandemic scenario from the stated 50-60% rate. The figure itself is not important what is relevant is the fact that the scenario can evolve beyond the initial conditions from a 50% death toll to more than 90%. By the way, no pandemic or nuclear war is included in the forecast. The key element to understand the process that the USA will enter in the upcoming decade is migration. In the past, specially in the 20th century, the key factor that allowed the USA to rise to its colossus status was immigration with the benefits of a demographic expansion supporting the credit expansion and the brain drain from the rest of the world benefiting the States. The collapse of the Western financial system will wipe out the standard of living of its population while ending ponzi schemes such as the stock exchange and the pension funds. The population will be hit so badly by a full array of bubbles and ponzi schemes that the migration engine will start to work in reverse accelerating itself due to ripple effects thus leading to the demise of the States. This unseen situation for the States will develop itself in a cascade pattern with unprecedented and devastating effects for the economy. Jobs offshoring will surely end with many American Corporations relocating overseas thus becoming foreign Corporations!!!! We see a significant part of the American population migrating to Latin America and Asia while migration to Europe – suffering a similar illness – won’t be relevant. Nevertheless the death toll will be horrible. Take into account that the Soviet Union’s population was poorer than the Americans nowadays or even then. The ex-Soviets suffered during the following struggle in the 1990s with a significant death toll and the loss of national pride. Might we say “Twice the pride, double the fall”? Nope. The American standard of living is one of the highest, far more than double of the Soviets while having added a services economy that will be gone along with the financial system. When pensioners see their retirement disappear in front of their eyes and there are no servicing jobs you can imagine what is going to happen next. At least younger people can migrate. Never in human history were so many elders among the population. In past centuries people were lucky to get to their 30s or 40s. The American downfall is set to be far worse than the Soviet Union’s one. A confluence of crisis with a devastating result. The Demographic crisis in the former Soviet Union countries has extended for over two decades, if we accept that it ended early in this decade (2010s). The demographic crisis will hit the World in the near future and is projected to last between three and eight decades more or less depending on technological breakthrough and environmental issues. The aftermath is more likely a frozen picture with the population numbers staying the same for a very, very long period of time. The countries forecast population numbers do reflect birth/deaths but also migratory movements. Many countries are going to increase their gross population due to immigration while their native population may shrink. Over the past two thousand years we have witnessed the Western civilization built around the Mediterranean Sea shifting to Northern Europe and then by the mid 20th century shifting to an Atlantic axis to finally get centered into the States in the past 30 years. The next move will see the civilization being centered in Asia with Russia and China on top. Historically a change in the economic paradigm has resulted in a death toll that is rarely highlighted by mainstream historians. When the transition from rural areas to large cities happened in Europe many people unable to accept the new paradigm killed themselves. They killed themselves by a psychological factor. This is not mainstream but it is true. A new crisis joins old, well known patterns with new ones. Sorry to disappoint many of you with our forecast. It is getting worse and worse every year since the beginning of the pre-crisis in 2007. It is already said that this website is non-profit, built on spare time and we provide our information and services AS IS without further explanations and/or guarantees. We are not linked to any government in any way, shape or form. We are not a death or satanic cult or arms dealers as some BS is floating around the internet on this topic. Take into account that the forecast is nothing more than a model whether flawed or correct. It is not God’s word or a magic device that allows to foresee the future. Sunday, October 26th, 2014

To see Deagle.com’s 2025 forecasts for all 182 countries, go here. Silver Doctors writes: “I leave it up to the reader to decide whether or not this is a legitimate forecast from a legitimate organization. […] But, having said that, I have 100% conviction that the U.S. is heading toward a devastating financial and economic collapse that will trigger massive social upheaval and civil unrest. What just happened in Baltimore is small taste of what that will look like.”

UPDATE (May 8, 2015):

Here are my critique and analysis:

  1. Deagle.com’s flawed data: The website itself admits that governments, including the U.S. government, lie about their economic statistics. And yet Deagle.com says “most” of its data come from public information sources that include USG and other governments.
  2. Deagle.com’s faux numerical precision: Despite its flawed data, the website manages to make forecasts 10 years into the future with numerical precision of specific population numbers and GDPs in exact dollar amounts.
  3. There does not appear to be a discernible logic for the order of countries in Deagle.com’s list of 182 countries in 2025. The countries are arranged neither alphabetically, nor geographically (by region or continent), nor by their fortunes (decline or improvement), nor by the severity of their projected decline.
  4. If one assumes that the economic collapse of the U.S. dollar and of the U.S. economy would be the trigger event, that could explain why other western countries (Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand) and Japan would also decline. But why would China, whose economy is so dependent on the U.S. market for its exports, be exempt from the predicted precipitous decline, but instead is predicted to have a population increase of 10.72 million and only a slight $466 decrease in its PPP (from $12,900 to $12,566? That makes no sense.
  5. Making even less sense is that present-day 4th-world countries like Burkina Faso in Africa is projected to increase its population from 18,360,000 to 18,402,380, and its PPP from $1,700 to $1,841.

Iran is a terror threat to the Middle East, Latin America & USA

Iranian and Western officials are in Lausanne, Switzerland rushing to reach a nuclear framework agreement by an end-of-month deadline, which means today.

It doesn’t help that an Iranian defector, a journalist who was a close media aide to Iran’s president and was present at the nuclear talks, said on television after his defection that the U.S. negotiation team is an advocate (“speaks for”) for Iran at the negotiation table.

And so it is with good reason that on March 29, 2015, in Jerusalem, newly reelected Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned against the emerging nuclear deal with Iran. More ominously, Netanyahu said that “Iran is maneuvering from the south to take over the entire Middle East.” Referring to the unrest in Yemen, Netanyahu said that “While [world powers] convene to sign this deal, Iran’s proxies in Yemen are conquering large swaths of land in an effort to overtake the Bab al-Mandab straits, so that they can change the balance of power in shipping oil.”

Bab al-Mandah straitsNetanyahu’s assertion is corroborated by none other than Qassem Suleimani, Iranian military mastermind and head of the foreign arm of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps, who recently was quoted by Business Insider as proclaiming:

We are witnessing the export of the Islamic Revolution throughout the [Middle East] region. From Bahrain and Iraq to Syria, Yemen and North Africa.”

Tony Badran, a research fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, explains what Suleimani meant: “When he talks about exporting the Islamic Revolution, Suleimani is referring to a very specific template. It’s the template that the Khomeinist revolutionaries first set up in Lebanon 36 years ago by cloning the various instruments that were burgeoning in Iran as the Islamic revolutionary regime consolidated its power.”

Iran's arc of influenceIran and its proxies are well positioned in several Middle Eastern countries.

But it’s not just the Middle East.

Iran is also a terror threat to the Western hemisphere — to Latin America and to the United States.

Alberto Nisman

Alberto Nisman

Alberto Nisman was an Argentine lawyer and federal prosecutor, noted for being the chief investigator of the worst terrorist attack in Argentina’s history — the 1994 car bombing of the Jewish center in Buenos Aires, AMIA, which killed 85 people.

On January 19, 2015, Nisman was found shot in the head in his locked apartment in Buenos Aires.

According to Linette Lopez of the Business Insider, March 20, 2015, Nisman had been zeroing in on Iran’s terror threat to Latin America before he was murdered. Testimonies from journalists and government officials say that Nisman was working to blow the lid off the entire workings of Iran’s terrorist organization in Latin America.

On March 18, 2015, in a written statement titled “Brazil as an operational hub for Iran and Islamic Terrorism,” Brazilian investigative journalist Leonardo Coutinho told the U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs what he found from years of work looking into Iran’s penetration of Brazil, as well as Nisman’s tireless work. Coutinho said:

“Official investigations carried out by Argentine, American, and Brazilian authorities have revealed how Brazil figures into the intricate network set up to ‘export Iran’s Islamic Revolution’ to the West, by both establishing legitimacy and regional support while simultaneously organizing and planning terrorist attacks. Despite the fact that Brazil has never been the target of one of these terrorist attacks, the country plays the role of a safe haven for Islamic extremist groups….”

Coutinho noted that Nisman’s 502-page dictum on the 1994 Buenos Aires terrorist attack “not only describes the operations of the network responsible for this terrorist attack, it also names those who carried it out. Consequently, the document lists twelve people in Brazil with ties to [Iran’s Lebanese proxy and a terrorist organization] Hezbollah, who reside or resided in Brazil. Seven of these operatives had either direct or indirect participation in the AMIA bombing.” In other words, Hezbollah and top government officials in Iran had orchestrated the AMIA attack.

Before he was murdered, Nisman identified Iranian mullah Mohsen Rabbani as an architect of the AMIA attack and the leader of Iran’s cell in Latin America. (Rabbani was a contact of Abdul Kadir, a former Guyana politician who is now serving a sentence of life in prison in the US for plotting to attack New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport in 2007. Kadir was prosecuted, with some assistance from Nisman, by none other than US attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch.)

Although Nisman’s investigation had been lauded by none other than Brazil’s president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, the Argentine administration eventually cast Nisman’s findings on AMIA, Iran, and Hezbollah aside.

Reportedly, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who died in 2013, had ensured that Iranian and Hezbollah agents were furnished with passports and flights that would allow them to move freely around South America and to Iran. From there, it was a matter of fund-raising for Iran’s agents — co-opting drug cartels, and sometimes hiding in remote, lawless parts of Brazil, Peru, Venezuela, and other countries that lack the infrastructural, legal, and economic resources to root out Iran’s agents of terror.

At the same March 18 House committee hearing, Peru’s former vice interior minister testified that “Iran and Hezbollah, two forces hostile to US interests, have made significant inroads in Peru, almost without detection, in part because of our weak institutions, prevalent criminal enterprise, and various stateless areas. These elements are particularly weak in the southern mountainous region of my country.”

But Iran is a terror threat not just to South America, but also to North America — the United States.

The Iranian regime has forged an alliance with the New Black Panthers and Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam against their “common enemy” — the United States of America.

Louis Farrakhan, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad & Malik Shabazz

Louis Farrakhan, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad & Malik Shabazz

Benny Johnson reports for The Blaze that on May 19, 2012 on Black Panther Radio, National Black Panther Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz described a secretive meeting between himself, Louis Farrakhan, then Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and fifty Imams.

The meeting, according to Shabazz, took place on September 27, 2010 in New York city during Ahmadinejad’s controversial visit to the UN. The details of the meeting have never been publicly revealed, but in new audio uncovered by The Blaze, Shabazz details the nature of the meeting and the scary, ‘Beast’ axis that was formed durring the meeting.

As The Blaze has reported, Farrakhan had warned whites that “their end has come” and encouraged Barack Obama to convert to Islam. For their part, the New Black Panthers have been fomenting racial hatred, threatening to hang whites. Ahmadinejad, then president of a country on the verge of attaining nuclear warfare capabilities, repeatedly had called for the destruction of Israel and America. All three are linked by their sharp opposition to western society and their deep Islamist roots, a connection not to be taken lightly given the rise of radical Islam throughout the world.

Below are some quotes by New Black Panthers leader Malik Shabazz from the radio interview:

“Anything I do is for revolution for black people, no matter what it is. Now, them ‘Johnny Come Lazy’ Facebook critics…I can reference Dr. Khalid Abdul Muhammad and kill all you n***as, pardon the language. Ah, well no don’t pardon the language, only on the kill part….”

Note: Khalid Abdul Muhammad (born Harold Moore Jr.; January 12, 1948 – February 17, 2001) was a black activist who came to prominence as the National Assistant to Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam (NOI). In 1983, Farrakhan renamed him Khalid after the Islamic general Khalid ibn al-Walid, a follower of the prophet Muhammad, calling him the Sword of Allah. In 1993, Moore/Muhammad was censured by both Houses of Congress and removed from his position in the NOI by Farrakhan for a racially inflammatory speech at Kean College, in which Moore/Muhammad referred to Jews as bloodsuckers, called the Pope a “no-good cracker,” and advocated the murder of any and all white South Africans who would not leave the country after a warning period of 24 hours. Moore/Muhammad then became the National Chairman of the New Black Panther Party until his death in 2001.

“Now, I can’t get in to the inner science or inter-political dynamics of necessarily what is the objective of that meeting; that wouldn’t be wise. But I can say that my teacher [referring to Shabazz mentor Dr. Khalid Abdul Muhammad], who was hard on the Arabs, he used to call them the rusty, dusty, camel-stink, camel-breath stinky Arab sometimes. But I also do know that this is the man that went to Libya over and over again on behalf of Minister Louis Farrakhan. I know this is [the] man who at the time of the Million Man March was trying to get to Libya again. I know this is the man that in the year 2000 took a hundred of us deep to the Israeli Embassy on behalf of the Palestinians. I’m talking about Dr. Khalid Abdul Muhammad. What would you think about him paroling on the Israeli embassy with a hundred New Black Panthers for the Arabs?”

“Some of these negroes have got nationalism twisted to a point where they have narrowed the nationalism, narrowed the nationalism to the point where international struggle against a common enemy is not possible, thereby strengthening the enemy who decides to divide the non-white against a common enemy.”

“Yes, the Arab was involved in slavery, and in this case, this is the Persians, ah hell they probably was involved in some too. But let’s keep it real, the African was involved in slavery, too. If you want to go all, if you want to walk that line of talk, well hell you’d have to cut yourselves off from half of Africa…this is our family, we love them, but in our [program] we say Africa owes us reparations, too.”

“Is it the Arab or slave trade of however many centuries ago, vs. alliances that are possible right now with people who got solid track records of being against this beast?”

“Now, let me finish on this question about Mahmud Ahmadinejad, his excellency, I see it, the president of Iran. I want to be clear with you all that I stand on solid ideological ground, and anybody that disagrees just don’t know what they hell they’re talking about because they don’t study.”

“What I’m doing and what I did in meeting with the President Ahmadinejad is exactly what Dr. Khalid Abdul Muhammad would have done. It is exactly, if he would’ve got the call like I got the call, the honorable Kwame Ture, was what he would have done in a heartbeat. It is exactly what Huey P. Newton or Eldridge Cleaver would have done in a heartbeat. It is exactly what Minister Malcom X…would have done in a heartbeat. Minister Louis Farrakhan was there, he speaks for himself.”

“Understand the dynamics and the politics of world revolution, and understand what’s most important when you decide what meetings that you will have to attend. Like I’m gon’ say no. They call me and ask me to go to the meeting.”

“I’m a Muslim, first of all I’m a Muslim I go anywhere in the Muslim world. I don’t put Islam and Muslim alliances over black people — I don’t put nothing over black people — but hell if I go and talk to somebody about perhaps bringing natural gas and oil and other reparations into the black nation, and other things – unmentionable — what does a negro have to say about it? He ain’t even dreamed of doing some of what we’ve encountered in that hotel.”

“I spoke strong in that meeting. There [were] fifty Imams in the meeting; I’m the only representative of a secular, or a non-religious organization. I’m sitting all the way nearly in the, at the big table in the back with these translator headphones on and everything, and Minister Farrakhan is sitting in the first seat in the front.

“You know, there is no greater enemy than the white man. You know, uh, again we have to learn because it’s just as many Arabs who hate this white man as we do. So, am I not to ally myself, alliance myself with this Arab in fighting this white man?

Cuba issues list of demands for normalization with U.S.

Raul Castro83-year-old Raúl Castro, President of Cuba & brother of Fidel

From an editorial in Investor’s Business Daily, Jan. 29, 2015:

Soon after President Obama announced plans to normalize relations with Cuba, Sen. Marco Rubio called him the worst negotiator since Jimmy Carter. Cuban officials are now proving Rubio right.

As soon as Obama made his announcement, it became clear he’d pretty much given up the store and gotten nothing in return.

Cuba didn’t have to make any concessions on freedom of speech, democratic elections, a market economy. It didn’t have to turn over U.S. fugitives, including a convicted cop killer, whom it’s been protecting for years.

Indeed, as we noted in this space after Obama’s announcement, Raúl Castro was soon bragging about how he’d struck a deal with Obama “without a single sacrifice of our principles.”

Castro apparently feels no need to do so in the future, either. After the opening round of talks, Cuban diplomat Josefina Vidal told the AP that “changes in Cuba aren’t negotiable.”

Now, to add insult to injury, Castro has started issuing his own set of demands.

In a speech at the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States summit in Costa Rica on Wednesday, he said there’d be no normalization of relations unless the U.S. ends the trade embargo, closes the naval base at Guantanamo Bay and takes Cuba off the list of state sponsors of terror.

Oh, and he also wants the U.S. to stop allowing Cubans to stay in this country just because they manage to set foot on American soil. That’s been causing a brain drain from the island, you see.

Castro has even told Obama what to do, saying in his speech the president should “use with resolve his broad executive powers to substantially change the scope of the blockade, even without the Congress’ decision.”

Why shouldn’t Castro be so brazen? Obama has already shown his hand. So Castro knows he can keep upping the bid, assuming — most likely correctly — that Obama will do anything to keep the normalization process from folding.

If this were the only time Obama has miserably failed at the bargaining table, it would be bad enough. But it’s just the latest in an continuing and ominous pattern — from his dealings with Iran, his prisoner exchange with the Taliban, his phony “red line” in Syria, his “reset” with Russia, etc.

Come to think of it, saying Obama is the worst negotiator since Jimmy Carter is actually an insult to Carter.

Update (Feb. 2, 2015):

IBD inexplicably left out another demand: reparations.

The AP reports, Jan. 28, 2015, that Castro also demanded that the United States pay Cuba hundreds of millions of dollars in “just compensation to our people for the human and economic damage that they’ve suffered” caused by the decades-long embargo.
