Archangel Michael Soul-consciousness

Beloved masters, never forget, your nearest and dearest friend should be yourself — your own Soul-consciousness.

Within your Sacred Heart Center you will find wisdom, compassion, patience, and most important of all, unlimited Sacred Love. From the beginning of the creative experience into density, all human life forms have been subjected to an ongoing, continuous series of revelations.

A curious, inquiring mind was a built-in, intrinsic facet of human nature. The Earth is, once again, being prepared for a new, higher-evolutionary species of humanity. All of you, as StarSeed and world servers, are encoded with Memory Seed Atoms giving you a burning desire to participate in the manifestation of this incredible dream of the future.

Your personal goal is to become a Self-directed, Soul-inspired entity in the midst of the chaos and turmoil of the current, Third- / Fourth-Dimensional reality of today.

A new Divine Plan filled with advanced creative ideas beyond the wildest dreams of even the most brilliant, advanced minds of today is being beamed down via the powerful Rays of God consciousness upon Earth and humanity from the Great Central Sun of this Sub-universe. An advanced Soul, treading the narrow path of Ascension, must learn how to absorb and integrate the three major God Rays of the coming Age, The Spiritual Trinity, consisting of: Divine Will * Love/intuition * intelligent, purposeful action.

Why not move into the center of the spiral of ascending consciousness, into the eye of duality and polarity, where all is calm and peaceful, filled with pure cosmic life force substance, Adamantine Particles, just waiting to be molded into your vision of the future? This very moment, as you move into your Sacred Heart Center, you can experience the profound love and compassion of our Father/Mother God and the Supreme Creator.

Please accept this immutable truth: you are a treasured son or daughter on an important mission. Nothing you can say or do can diminish that love. It is time to open the brain passages of your mind to the higher frequency codes of your OverSoul/Higher Self.

Too many of you are still carrying great burdens from the past. Mistakes you have made in this lifetime, and also many from past conditioning and buried memories of painful events or actions from all your previous lifetimes. Holding onto these memories or carrying the burdens of inequity no longer serves you.

It is time for you to allow us to help you heal the painful memories stored within your physical vessel and auric field – just as we are clearing the distortions of the Third-/Fourth-Dimensional, collective consciousness belief patterns; thereby, bringing those dimensions back into their originally designed spectrum of duality.

Fear is a primitive fight or flight emotion, which will hinder the expansion of your consciousness awareness. It is time to clear and reprogram the base, instinctual components of your lower human nature.

It is important that you understand, even though you no longer remember your past errors or the thoughts and deeds that threw you off balance, until these negative thought forms are acknowledged and transmuted, those energies are still present within your cellular structure waiting to be rectified and returned to harmony within.

Through your conscious awareness, and by aligning your will with the Will of your Higher Self and our Mother/Father God, all that is not in harmony with the frequencies of the higher Fourth/Fifth Dimensions is roiling up within to be healed and returned to the harmonics of peaceful coexistence, joy and loving intention. This is the source of so much of the inner turmoil, challenges and tests that you, the Self-aware seekers of Light, are experiencing.

We have stressed over and over again, one of the greatest challenges, yet one of the most important tasks to be accomplished in order to step onto the spiral of Ascension, is to maintain a focused point of awareness within your Solar Power Center. In doing so, you will maintain an open passage into the Sacred Heart−thereby allowing the Creator Light to flow freely to and from you. This, in turn, assists you to enhance and perfect your uniquely beautiful, harmonious Soul Song.

During these wondrous, yet trying, times, you are being given a grand opportunity to tap into the cosmic library, which holds the mysteries of this Sub-Universe. You, the StarSeed, are gradually becoming equipped to tap into those sacred temples / Pyramids of Light where the universal laws and wisdom of the ages are stored. In doing so, you will learn that you can traverse any height, surmount any obstacle, and your path of Ascension will be revealed with certainty.

You have never lost your divinity or your godly intelligence. It has only been in safe-keeping, awaiting the time when you would, once again, awaken to claim your birthright as a Divine child of our Mother/Father God.

Beloveds, we are asking you to focus on yourselves so you may become clear vessels for the refined frequencies of Light. You have the ability to become a conduit for the Adamantine Particles of Creator Light, which will permeate your physical vessel, and flow out into the world of form. However, you must liberate the power of the Sacred Fire from within your physical vessel, the Kundalini Fire stored within your Root Chakra, while drawing forth a new supply via the great Sixth-Dimensional Cities of Light.

Sananda channeled Christmas Message 2019

Sananda via Linda Dillon, December 21st, 2019

Jesus Sananda’s Christmas Message: You are the Gift

Jesus Sananda’s Christmas Message: You are the Gift

Channeled by Linda Dillon, Counciloflove.com, Dec. 21, 2019

https://counciloflove.com/2019/12/jesus-sanandas-2019-christmas-message-you-are-the-gift/

Greetings, I am Yeshua, I am Jesus Sananda, I am Jesus, I am Yeshi. And I am yours as you are mine. I welcome you to this time of re-birth, to this time when quite literally the heavenly host announce the re-birth in and out of form.

Traditionally, this time of year has meant the exchange of gifts, of presents. Your presence on planet, on Earth, with sweet Gaia is a deep profound gift to me, to the Mother, to the Father, to the All.

But what gift do I bring you? What gift do I wish to bestow upon you? And what do I wish to share with you about your remarkable progress, achievements, forward thrust over this last year, over this last decade?

No, the decade did not begin in 2012 but certainly, sweet angels of light, that was a pivotal turning point – a point at which you assumed whether you were conscious, cognizant of it at the time – when you, each of you and the collective in a level of spiritual evolvement and maturity that actually was quite unexpected, you declared to the Mother, Father, One, that you chose love.

Could anything be more precious? Could anything turn the tide more than that? That you choose not only to think of yourselves and your desire to be in the fullness of your ascended self but rather than proceed alone, or with a small clique, that you have chosen to ascend as one, with your brothers and sisters of this planet?

Has the remainder of this decade been truly work, play, expansion, anchoring, evolvement? Yes! You’ve cleared the decks. And you have cleared beneath the decks. And you have rooted into not only your core issues but the truth of who you are, individually and collectively. You have chosen to proceed not with a snap of our fingers but with the assumption of the truth of who you are and who you have always been.

Now it is time – yes, in your time, in the Mother’s time, in [Archangel] Uriel’s silver pool of time – it is time for you to emerge, as I have emerged once before from the cave, from the tomb.

The similarity between you and I, beloved ones, is pretty much exact. And why am I talking about resurrection and Easter when it is Christmas? Because I want you to understand, not only about the gifts we all bring this day, but about the gift you are. About the power, the might, the light that you are.

You have lived in a very dark time and I do not simply mean in the past decade, or in the past one hundred years or even the past two thousand years. You have lived in very dark times. I do not mean this in terms of the divisions, the divisiveness that has been created by those who wish to maintain or abuse power. I mean the darkness of loneliness, of isolation. Might I even say the abandonment of the dream? And not only your dream, but the dream of the Mother, the dream of the Father, the dream of many throughout the galaxies.

That darkness comes to an end because the clarity of vision, which is no more than the clarity of heart, is being restored. And is it being done to you? No. It is being done with you. Oh, we have done some fine tuning, no doubt. But so have you in your choices, in your forward thrust, in your choosing of love.

Now you enter a new time. It does not hurt to look over your shoulder. You do not turn into a pillar of salt. Look over your shoulder, and see me. See my beloved Magdalena, our family, our circle, our friends – the disciples, the apostles and centuries of saints, prophets, and wise men.

Look over and when you do, see us. See us as part of the Mother’s final wave of her Tsunami of Love – pushing, guiding. No running backwards. See what has been accomplished.

And then, beloved, look ahead, because I am standing directly in front of you. I have asked you several years ago to come and to walk with me. Well, now I am coming and asking you to run with me, to fly with me, to soar with me. And you say, “Lord, there is nothing in the world or beyond that I would like better.”

And so, what I say to you, let us together this day claim your right – your divine right, your historical right, your birthright – to be in the fullness of your ascended self. My gift to you for Christmas, for Hanukkah, for Wednesday, for Tuesday, for every single day, is not only the gift of my love, but the gift of re-birth.

You’ve been in the cave, you’ve been in the darkness. You know what that is like, and you have come to the stillpoint and you have traveled back to the heart of the Mother/Father/One. Now, let us push aside the stone. No, not that you ascend into heaven, but that you walk the Earth in harmony with all – with the elements and elementals, with Gaia, with your star family – very present now. With us who return in this time of renewal and celebration. Yes, myself included.

It is time. You say to me, “Yeshi, Yeshua, Lord, how do I do this?” It is a very complicated procedure but I will go through it with you. I want you to get up and go to your bathroom and look in the mirror, and see yourself – and to truly see yourself, to embrace yourself, to love yourself, and to see me standing there right next to you.

Yes, in the privacy of your own home. And perhaps it is at the privacy of your table where you have prepared a place for me, dear friend. For I am sure to arrive hungry. I always have been, you know. This is part of the delight of being on a planet where there is food and drink and water and air. I do not say this to any of you casually. Oh, I tease you. I make light of it.

You have been birthing your sacred self and you most certainly – each and every one of you – have known the labor pains. I remember being born through Mare into human form, emerging through the birth canal. So much attention is always given to the mother, as is correct. But I remember it, that sense of – even though I knew what lay ahead – slight anxiety. “Am I sure that I am up for this? Am I sure that as I emerge into the brilliance of the light – the birth canal is dark?” It is like being in the void.

Then you are pushed, pushed into the light. Luckily, I was not smacked. I was simply coddled. That is what you are doing. You are birthing into the light on planet. While the Mother might be the one birthing you, I am certainly right there with you to be midwife, to give you not only the first coddle, but to assist you with your first breath of clear, clean, pure, pure, pure fresh air. To guide you, to walk with you, to run with you, not as downtrodden human but as bright angels in form, in the truth, the power, the might, and the light of who you really are.

This is not a gift of preparation, my beloveds. This is a gift of saying “Let’s go!” And I know that you have already said “Yes.”

Go with my love and go in celebration.  Farewell.

An audicious reminder to bold presidents:

 

A January 2020 announcement of a New Budget for World Peace Foundation and a new President, can send a signal for a coming creative Pax Mare Baltikum Summit Summer Event in Stockholm City Hall.

Is this a challenge to you, Mr. President Donald Trump?

An Handshaking Event between Presidents Xi Jinping, Putin and Trump can add both International and Royal Flavor to the Stockholm City Hall, annually used at the December Nobel Price Festivities.
Let us ask for the participation of Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Victoria Bernadotte of Sweden?!!

Furthermore, after the family Rockefellers had finally accepted the decease and inheritance split of late Financier Patriarch David Rockefeller at 101 years of age, I have presented hopes for His eldest Daughter Margaret to take an active interest in becoming Financier President for World Peace Foundation, as well as a key member of the World Wide BRI: Belt and Road Initiative.

Thus, handled with some diplomatic finesse, year 2020 can be fruitful for many countries, leaders and cultures.

Yes; do let us give peace a chance, says President Xi Jinping boldly in a recent Summit….

Benjamin Fulford Reports on Sananda Website 2019

“Unveiling Begins” – Fulford Report – 12.17.19

Antarctica is under lockdown as secret space program unveiling begins

December 17, 2019
By Benjamin Fulford

An unusual flurry of events and press announcements makes it clear the U.S. government is unveiling its secret space program, multiple sources agree. We are also hearing of a Chinese secret space program, a Nazi secret space program, and a Russian secret space program. All of these revelations are being accompanied by unusual movements of gold and other financial anomalies. The recent trade agreement between the U.S. and China is also linked to these secret space programs, Chinese and Pentagon sources agree. These are all signs that some sort of mind-boggling planetary event may be coming.

Typically this writer does not tread lightly into the UFO world and believes extra-ordinary claims require extraordinary proof. However, such proof is now undeniable.

The biggest evidence is a series of public announcements by multiple government officials, including U.S. President Donald Trump. The official launching of a U.S. Space Force by Trump is just the start of a gradual process of disclosure, Pentagon officials say.

https://www.defensenews.com/congress/2019/12/10/defense-policy-deal-creates-space-force-sidesteps-border-wall-controversy/

The media is now being filled with stories about UFOs and secret U.S. military technology as part of this process. As we have previously reported, the U.S. Navy has released patents for anti-gravity flying saucers and compact nuclear fusion. Now we have a recently retired air force general talking about already existing technology that can take us “from one part of the planet to any other part within an hour.”

https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/31445/recently-retired-usaf-general-makes-eyebrow-raising-claims-about-advanced-space-technology

https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/weird-news/navy-covered-up-new-technology-21066844

Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Ala. and Air Force Secretary Barbara Barrett both called publicly this month for the declassification of “a large amount of information about America’s military space programs.”
https://www.defensenews.com/smr/reagan-defense-forum/2019/12/08/barrett-rogers-plan-to-declassify-black-space-programs/

The $21 trillion missing from the U.S. government budget since 1998, as documented by Catherine Austin Fitts and others, was spent on the secret space program, Pentagon officials confirm. Much of this technology is now being released to the general public, they say.

We are also getting far more UFO sightings around the world that are being recording on high-quality video. If you get into the habit of looking at the sky as I have, it won’t be long before you can see for yourself with your own naked eyes.

https://sputniknews.com/science/201912141077575518-nasa-astronaut-shockingly-hints-at-aliens-in-tweet-about-life-forms/

Now that the Antarctic summer has begun, we are again getting multiple reports of strange goings-on there, too. On December 10th, a Chilean military plane carrying 38 people vanished in good weather on its way to Antarctica.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-50723907?fbclid=IwAR2LrWVvPxHJ-P0B5_6RjNeb8tFXixUnYi9xdTegoWs1liAaDLrw1fu8Lh0

A senior CIA officer, and relative of Admiral Richard Byrd of Antarctic exploration fame, told us:

“The Chilean military were ordered by their controllers not to go near Antarctica. They thought they were smarter and knew more than their masters. The C-130 has been removed. It wasn’t who was on the plane, it was what they were carrying that resulted in ‘the disappearance.’ At this stage, there are no entries and exits taking place on Antarctica. The Southernmost continent is on lockdown until further notice (not due to this incident).”

A member of the “Cobra resistance” who has recently returned from Antarctica provided us with the photograph below.

https://benjaminfulford.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/Antarctica-cloud-ship2-300×225.png

They claim it is a photograph of a cloud ship or a large alien vessel using cloud-type camouflage. However, what interests us more is the faint picture of what looks like large buildings on the distant coastline. Whatever is going on there, it is clearly more than just a few scientists studying penguins.

“Many Russian and American scientists have been killed in Antarctica,” says a senior P2 Freemason source, citing Russian FSB and CIA reports. “I know for sure there are ancient alien bases,” he adds. This is why Antarctica is closed off, he says.

This is the person who told us in advance that the P2 were going to fire Pope Benedict XVI. He was also found once by the CIA near the BIS with a gun and a sophisticated lock-picking device.

This source also says the earthquake recorded last week at Mindanao in the Philippines was caused by an attack on a hostile underground military base.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/philippines-earthquake-today-tsunami-damage-latest-magnitude-usgs-deaths-a9247381.html?utm_source=reddit.com

Now, to segue back to the here/now geopolitics that this newsletter usually focuses on, let us see how the secret space program ties into the recent U.S./China partial trade deal. Asian secret society leaders have long told us they have wanted the U.S. to reveal its secret space program to them. This was agreed to at the recent U.S./China trade talks, they say. That’s why the details of the agreement have not yet been made public, they add. What has been made public indicates that China has offered to buy an extra $200 billion worth of goods from the U.S. every year. Economists have been scratching their heads over this, because the official U.S. economy does not have the capacity to export that much. However, if secret space technology is included in the picture, then everything makes sense.

The U.S. is also now going to wind down its germ warfare against Chinese agriculture as a part of the deal, CIA sources say. The story at the link below, trying to blame Chinese gangsters for drones caught dropping swine fever into pig farms, is almost certainly a CIA attempt to divert the blame for these attacks.

https://www.zerohedge.com/political/chinese-gangs-infect-pigs-swine-fever-criminal-meat-scheme

The other thing that has been going on this week is the continued strange movements in the financial markets. A CIA source in Southeast Asia tells us Indonesia has suddenly announced a $40 billion infrastructure project that he says is a payoff to the government for giving the Rothschilds access to some of their gold. Goldman Sachs provides partial confirmation of this by reporting that 1,200 tons or $57 billion of “unexplained gold flows” have been spotted recently.

Also, according to Zero Hedge, “A Fed economist, Ruth Judson, wrote in 2017 that about 60% of all U.S. currency, and about 75% of $100 bills, had left the country by the end of 2016—for a total of about $900 billion in U.S. dollars kept overseas.” That number is now over $1 trillion, as the world’s rich hoard cash in a fight against negative interest rates, CIA sources say.

https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/hundreds-billions-gold-and-cash-are-quietly-disappearing

This all ties into a growing market consensus that it will be impossible to keep the current U.S. stock market bubble going on much longer. When mainstream publications like The Wall Street Journal start saying corporations are cooking their books to make profits look bigger than they are, you know the end is near.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/huge-disparity-in-corporate-profits-hints-at-something-amiss-11576328400

The FRB’s announcement they were going to pump $500 billion into financial markets in the coming days is another sign it is not business as usual in the financial markets. P2 Freemason sources say the money is being pumped into the repo market in response to a proxy war that is pitting the Germans, i.e. JP Morgan and Deutsche Bank, against the Rothschilds, i.e. Goldman Sachs and Trump.

Speaking about the FRB, we are sad to note the passing of former Fed Chief Paul Volcker. I met him several times and he convinced me that the central bankers were only charged with trying to keep money in line with the real economy, something he excelled at. What Volcker did not tell me was that it was his Rockefeller bosses who decided—in secret—how the money central bankers created was distributed.

We also note the subject of a jubilee, or debt forgiveness for the average Joe, is now part of a mainstream discussion. This is another hint of some sort of financial event, one that could be linked to space disclosure.

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/5-000-old-plan-erase-100000406.html

Also, now that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has won an overwhelming mandate to leave the German EU, it’s time for a new deal for Europe, agree P2 Freemason and British Intelligence sources. They say a fundamental agreement has been reached to have Europe run by a triumvirate of Germany, Russia, and the UK.

British Intelligence are also saying the constant impeachment and “Russian meddling” attacks against Trump were waged by a certain UK faction. This campaign is now being wound down, they say. This means the attacks on Russia and on Trump are going to be stopped, they add.

Our Pentagon source close to Trump had the following to report this week: “Trump may have to invade Mexico not just to fight CIA drug cartels, but to keep lithium and other resources out of Chinese hands.”

Also, “Backlash against Boeing continues as China finally questions the safety of the 737 MAX, paving the way for a global ban of the flying coffins, while the Department of Defense blocked Boeing from the $85 billion ICBM replacement contract.”

The source further noted, “The 90% Christian majority is flexing its conservative muscles against accursed J with the Hallmark Channel banning lesbian ads and Brazil outrage over a Netflix portrait of a gay Jesus in “the first temptation of Christ.”

On a final note, we can confirm that a meeting is being arranged, possibly for mid-January, between the British Commonwealth, the P2 Freemasons, the Pentagon, and Asian secret societies to discuss the establishment of a World Planning Agency with an annual budget of $1 trillion. The establishment of this agency, a jubilee, disclosure of the secret space program, and a financial reset are going to be discussed at this meeting, which P2, British, and Asian sources all agree about.

Adama:

 

Angels and Adama ~ galaxygirl~ 12/8/2019

We are the angels. We see humanity struggling with these upheavals of change. We would like to remind you that you are lovingly surrounded in every moment by many helping hands, should you allow. We are always here for you. The close calls, the near misses, we are always working to ensure your success. Won’t you talk with us? For we are all around you.

We are the angels. We are hard workers behind the scenes, carrying the light, as are you, ground team. Many of you feel under appreciated. Appreciation for the tasks that you do behind the scenes in secret, in the dark as you illuminate it – it is unimaginable to you the amount of impact that you are having. It is in the stillness that this is best achieved. We see that more and more of you are discovering your own inner still point where the Christ child lives. It is imperative that you seek the stillness more regularly, more fully, for that and that alone will assist you in the coming days ahead.

We are the angels. We love you so much. We send you our tremendous appreciation for the love and joy that you are sharing. Many of you are processing old wounds for yourselves and for the collective. For this we thank you. And we remind you that you are never alone. You are continuously surrounded by the light of the Christ, of the all. You are always surrounded by us, as we continuously collaborate with Source to best assist you. But you must be open and think to ask. Think to pray, think to be still and feel the difference. The solstice is approaching, the still point, the balance. Find your own inner balance and be still, be comforted. The the greatest gift that you can give yourselves is the forethought of inner peace, of the inner stillness.

We are the angels. We surround you with a warm blanket of love this day. Be at peace and be comforted. Be assured that you are making an enormous difference and you have the full support of the angelic realm. We send light and love into your being now. Refreshing, uplifting energies into your form.

Greetings, this is Adama of Telos. Greetings, family of the light. Your inner earth family within Telos sends you love and encouragement this day. We can feel the inner shift of Gaia and we have felt her shift quite a lot lately, which tells us that our reunions are close at hand, and this gives us great cause for excitement and thanksgiving. We know you are weary. The amount of light that you, light team, have grounded lately, is staggering, unprecedented. Much more is to come, but you have help, should you allow it. Many of you have felt alone. This need not be the case, for you are surrounded by family and friends sending your their etheric and galactic support. You are not alone.

I am Adama of Telos. Many of you visit here in your dream state, enjoying the beauty of the inner earth cities and sanctuaries. Gaia is to be a paradise once again. She has remained so in the inner plane. The surface world will be restored once again. We see that the ground team needs to be restored a bit, for these shifts have taken a toll on your morale. Friends, you are not alone. I place my hand over your heart space. (I am seeing crystal light that is alive and spinning, singing). I am placing my hand in your heart, my child. I am placing my other hand on your forehead. (I am feeling this crystal light move inside my head, spinning the energies. The crystal spaces in my head and heart become merged. My body is now filled with this sparkling crystal light). The days of the lone warrior are past. The days of reunification with tribes of days gone by is at hand. Many of you are rejoining us as you slumber, for joy and for celebration. The celebration will soon be made manifest in your surface realm. But carry this celebration in your heart space, carry this inner peace with you and it will be more easily made manifest.

I am Adama of Telos, high priest and big brother. We are your caring family. Gaia’s surface and inner realms will be pristine and beautiful once again. But this pristine beauty may begin within your heart spaces now. See, I have given you a little energetic upgrade. These energies of joy and peace are all around. Allow this higher light, this 5 and 6 D light to rework your inner thought patterns that need to ascend as well. See the word “isolation” and put it in front of you in an orb. Fill the orb with crystal light and see the word change to “community.” Your inner earth community surrounds you with light. You are no longer alone, you need not feel that you are.

I am Adama of Telos. Our healing chambers are always open to serve the surface team of light. You are always welcome within our gates. Only the pure of heart may enter. Many of us (citizens of Telos) are timidly venturing out for a view and experience of the surface world. It is not a place for the faint of heart. We hold you in high respect and honor for the cleansing work, for the bravery that you continually show by holding the light so admirably. Be encouraged and be comforted. This inner light work that we have done together is encoded with Nova Gaia energies with the frequency of Telos. It will be easier for you to connect with your friends and family here or there, whichever makes most sense to you. But know that here or there is irrelevant for it is all within you. Nova Gaia is a state of being, as well as a place. We dwell in this still point of being and you will be carrying with you this state of being, state of mind, state of the heart, wherever you go and you will be a calling card, a beacon of the higher ascended realms wherever you go. Do not concern yourselves with lower vibrational realms and realities. Other combat teams are dealing with this. They have their assignments and are doing it excellently. Your assignment, ground team, is to have the faith and the fortitude and the endurance enough to keep going, to keep loving, to keep shining your light. And in so doing you are bridging realities, weaving them together vibrationally.

I am Adama of Telos, high priest. Many of you have been priests and priestesses in days gone by. We weave the light with you. Just as Inner Earth is weaving its energies with outer earth so your inner realities must be woven with your outer realm so that your inner peace is made manifest on the outer. Live your days within this oasis of peace and be comforted. All is most well. I am Adama of Telos. I kiss your forehead with brotherly affection, igniting the codes further. Feel the love that is available for you, ground team. Feel the light spin within. You are not alone. Feel this call of Inner Earth, carrying you home, and realize it is within you and has been in away all along. Your soul, the voice of your soul is calling you home. This has been a brutal road for many. The experiment fell too far and too many outside interferences were involved. They are being removed. All is in good hands. Ground the light. Ground the peace. Be the joy of heaven within the form of the human body and rewrite your future. For the future is not what you have been told it would be. (I am seeing collapsing old timelines of armageddons, of traumatic ends). These are no more. The crystal heart of Nova Gaia pulses with life, with hope, with trust, with new beginnings. She is trusting in Mother and Father. Will you? I am Adama of Telos. Until we meet again. Peace, brothers and sisters. Peace.

Recent Benjamin Fulfort Weekly Reports

China winning as West remains paralyzed by bloodline vs. Illuminati battle

The Western world remains paralyzed by an elite civil war while China keeps getting stronger and stronger and is heading towards absolute dominance.  Unless this civil war is ended, the Western G6 alliance (G7 minus Japan) will lose the ability to control the United Nations and the direction humanity chooses for its future.

The civil war was on full display at last week as U.S. President Donald Trump “didn’t fare too well at the NATO meetings in London and left abruptly after the Canadian premier was overheard being disrespectful to him,” according to European royal family sources.  The “school playground type of tricks” masked the fact that the real topic of the summit was “the funding of the U.S. corporate government.”  The source also said, “Trump has been a disappointment, I think.  His job was to wind down and reboot.”

Trump has been recently given a couple of reminders that he is dealing with bigger issues than keeping a U.S. stock market bubble inflated long enough for him to be re-elected in 2020.  One was a shutdown of Washington, D.C. air defenses that left him totally vulnerable to a missile or air attack.  The other was when he was hit with a psychotronic weapon on November 21st.

https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/1208818/Donald-Trump-latest-health-news-U.S.-President-jon-voight-national-medal-of-arts-Twitter

The Gnostic Illuminati military and intelligence types behind Trump, for their part, have been lashing out strongly against the British royals, especially after the failed NATO summit.  Pentagon sources say, “The royal family saga is far from over, as Trump denies knowing and even Canada’s military struggles with Prince Andrew’s three Colonels-in-Chief titles.”

Then there was the undeniable satanic hand sign made by Prince Harry when he met Melania Trump on December 6th.

Sources close to Harry say the sign meant …

Trump lashes out in all directions as world tension escalates to dangerous levels

World tensions are reaching a dangerous boiling point as an increasingly isolated U.S. President Donald Trump lashes out in all directions.  It looks like Trump is trying to rally U.S. military support for war against Denmark and Mexico in an attempt to seize resources to finance the U.S. corporate government, multiple sources agree.  A major financial sabotage campaign is also underway against China, highlighted by the U.S. dollar bond default of a company with revenue of the satanic number of $66.6 billion.  Meanwhile, Trump backers are lashing out against the British royal family.  Remember, Trump has already labeled the EU “a foe.”

All of this activity is related to the fact that, despite stealing the Japanese people’s pension money, the U.S. corporation still does not have a clear path to meeting its January 31, 2020 payment deadline.  It is interesting to note in this context that Brexit is now scheduled for January 31, 2020.

Let’s start by looking at the situation with Mexico.  The U.S. has now deployed three aircraft carrier groups around that country as “the U.S. military prepares to attack Mexican drug cartels, who may be armed and trained by Mossad,” Pentagon sources say.
http://www.gonavy.jp/CVLocation.html

While we can independently confirm that some of the drug cartel fighters have indeed been trained by Mossad, we also know that this war on Mexico is really about stealing Mexican oil, silver, and other resources to finance the U.S. corporation.  That’s why the Mexican military has publicly come out in support of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (Amlo).
https://news.yahoo.com/mexicos-top-military-brass-offer-200001882.html

Russia has also deployed nuclear-armed submarines around the U.S. coastline, and Russian President Vladimir Putin publicly declared earlier this year that his country is ready for another Cuban missile crisis.
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-russia-putin/putin-to-u-s-im-ready-for-another-cuban-missile-crisis-if-you-want-one-idUSKCN1QA1A3

What this means is that Trump is going to have to back down, because the U.S. military is not going to start a nuclear war to steal resources to support a foreign-owned UNITED STATES CORPORATION.

Next let us look at Denmark.  Here, Lars Findsen, head of the Danish Defence Intelligence Service, said Greenland was now a top security issue for Denmark because a “power game is unfolding” between the U.S. and other global powers in the Arctic.  Trump cancelled an August state visit to Denmark and called their Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen “nasty” after she refused to sell Greenland to the U.S.
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-50598898

These events follow the installation of a Nazi government in Brazil and a seizure of lithium resources in Bolivia by U.S. Special Forces.  Clearly the Trump administration is trying to turn the American continent into a fortress.  Unfortunately, Canada (the British Empire), Denmark (the EU), and Mexico (supported by Russia and the Vatican) stand in his way.

Now let us turn to the economic attack against China, where CIA sources in Asia promise, “China’s economy and financial system will most likely implode within …

Benjamin Fulford talks Gold, Silver, JFK and financial reset with Robert David Steele, with Notes

This 30-minute interview with Robert David Steele provides an easy-to-understand overview of exactly who and what the deep state is made of.


Hi Ben,

I thought your interview with Robert David Steele was so good it should make the history books as “The Steele-Fulford Level Set.”

I had to take notes.  Here they are if they can be useful to you.

Best & cheers,
—SH


Robert David Steele (RDS) sets the stage, asks for Fulford’s full introduction, and Fulford complies.  RDS cites Fulford’s introduction of a Japanese princess to RDS, and then RDS breaking the Korea Peninsula denuclearization and reunification story because of this.  RDS is called a lunatic until the story breaks more widely.  RDS knows that many Fulford stories are similar—considered crazy until widely acknowledged.  RDS then asks for a broad, global stage-setting of the historical players.

  1. Gnostic Illuminati
    1. Started the American, French, and Russian revolutions.  Starting a world revolution this time.
    2. Founded by Pythagoras.
    3. Recruits 6,000 geniuses per generation.
    4. A discloser to Fulford (one of the geniuses) was scouted in by Bobby Fisher, the chess champion.
  2. P2 Freemasons
    1. Created Communism.
    2. Leo Zagami told Fulford of the P2 Freemasons.
    3. Descendants of Caesars who want a NWO empire under them.
    4. They wear black masks and give orders to the Vatican and others.
    5. They foretold of the firing of Pope Benedict and then made it happen, so they’re real.
  3. Scottish Rite Freemasons
    1. Basically, the British Empire, #2 “on the totem pole” after the P2 Freemasons/Caesars in the West.  Fulford feels they are, from his interactions, basically decent people.
    2. They are pushers of global warming to support underdeveloped countries to avoid killing large part of the world’s population.  Bush and his people want population culling.
  4. RDS recounts Fulford introducing RDS to a top Chinese Freemason.
    1. RDS asks about the power structure in Asia and the differences in Freemasons in the West versus the East.
      1. Fulford:  The Chinese royal families chose Communism as the best way to modernize China.
      2. There are two power blocks inside China, and three outside.
        1. Communist Youth League is Chinese meritocracy/bureaucracy;  the people working their way up that pyramid.
        2. Royal families that stay in the background and control finances.
        3. Third Asian block, having similar languages:  “The horse people”—Mongolians, Japanese, Koreans—with a 1,000-year history of cooperation and adversity with Chinese.  Fulford: “The difference between the Chinese and these people is BIGGER than between the Chinese and the English.”
        4. Chinese diaspora in Southeast Asia:  Former members of defeated dynasties who fled with riches/gold to Southeast Asia and Taiwan.  Very influential among overseas Chinese.
        5. Russia
          1. The Bolshevik Revolution was NOT a Russian revolution but rather was created by Communist Jews.
          2. Upon the dissolution of the USSR, 300 top Russians were bribed to agree to the fall of the Soviet Union and became Russia’s oligarchs living overseas, as in London, etc.  Many top Russian Jews migrated to Israel.
          3. The traditional Orthodox Christian Church of Russia and the Secret Service allied to the Czar were assassinated (~200 people) but took back power.  Today the Russian Orthodox Church is the main power in Russia.  Fulford feels these are good people.  Russia’s living standard doubled within one year of Russia taking back its power.  The Church/Putin stopped the looting of monies going overseas by oligarchs, which is why they vilify Putin.  Fulford speculates that the USA similarly could double its living standard within a year by the removal of the Khazazian Jewish owners of the Federal Reserve Board.  RDS agrees.
  5. RDS references returning to the topics of Asia, gold, and the JFK Memorial Green Hilton Agreement.
  6. RDS mentions the Russian Orthodox Church sweeping into the Byzantine empire as the segue to the Middle East of today and Russia’s proactive stance in Middle East and avoided the topic of the Aga Khan.
    1. Fulford:  “I forgot to mention the Zionists!”  Big laugh.  RDS: “Qanon says ‘we leave the Zionists for last,’” referencing a Qanon post.
      1. Fulford recounts the Turkish Jew founder, Sabbatai Zevi (~1648) with ~1 million followers, acts to carry out prophecies in the Bible, create an artificial Armageddon, and rule the world from Jerusalem.
      2. The Chabads think that after war between Gog and Magog with 90% of humans eliminated, every Jew will receive 2,800 slaves and Jews will rule the world.  The Zionists are a powerful minority behind the Middle Eastern troubles.
    2. Middle East:  Historically, there are three main groups:
      1. Persians/Iranians—the Shia branch of Islam.
      2. Turks/Byzantine heirs—different languages, but variants are still spoken in 17 countries, as testimony of the enduring legacy of the Byzantine empire.
      3. Arabs/Saudi Arabia, Egypt—the Sunni branch of Islam.
      4. Aga Khan—a descendent of Mohammed and heir to the Assassins (who are still around and quite active).  Influential in the Shia world and British high society, maintains a low profile and controls Pakistan.  Fulford:  His heart seems to be in the right place.
    3. Gold
      1. RDS mentions the Seagraves’ book Gold Warriors:  America’s Secret Recovery of Yamashita’s Gold.  Both of the Seagraves were friends of RDS.  The book is about the capture of Japanese gold in Philippines, which became the Black Lily Fund, which funded U.S. covert operations worldwide, morphing into the Black Eagle Fund which funded the Brennan/Tenet/Krongard economic war on Russia (RDS: “for which Putin had every right to nuke us”).
      2. RDS segues to the Global Currency Reset (GCR), as indigenous chiefs and elders seem to be coming back into their own.
      3. Fulford: “That’s a big question!”
        1. Since Roman times, Asia has been sending silk/ceramics/spices to the West, being paid in gold and silver, resulting in 85% of world’s gold being in Asia.
        2. Asians set up the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) to help Germany help pay for their Versailles Treaty reparations after WWI.
        3. Asians were promised a world governance with families in the background, but needed WWII to make that happen.  The winning powers broke their promise and cut off gold to Asia, with no Marshall Plan for Asia/Africa, only a plan for the countries they controlled in Europe.
        4. Kennedy promised a Marshall Plan for the world using Asian/Indonesian gold for backing.  Kennedy was assassinated and the U.S. ran out of gold in the early 1970’s.  Nixon went off the gold standard and the petrodollar was the scheme created, which is now failing.
        5. 9/11 was related to a secret court case that the U.S. lost.  The U.S. had to pay back gold taken from China in the 1938 deal.  The U.S. couldn’t pay, so the evidence was blown up in 9/11.  The War On Terror started, with a fascist coup d’état in the form of the U.S. Patriot Act, when the U.S. became a Nazi terrorist state.  The good guys wake up and find that the U.S. establishment are the bad guys.
        6. In 2008, with the U.S. teetering on bankruptcy, they promise a black president and “things will be different” to get money from Asians.  Barry Soetoro a.k.a. Barack Obama was just a Bush-agenda house slave.  Asian support was withdrawn.  Obama/2008:  750 tons of gold were taken from Yohannes Riyadi, and sold 1,000+ times to create $23 trillion of gold-backed bonds.  This is what’s pumping up the global stock markets, 1,000x leveraged gold.  The markets must return to reality.
        7. The Trump presidency is backed by Gnostic and military-industrial persons, whose hearts are in the right place.
      4. RDS asks about a possible Xi Jinping/Putin/Trump deal to keep markets from collapsing to get Trump re-elected.  Fulford:  It’s easy to say it’s a bubble, but difficult to say when it will burst.  The Chinese Elders suggest a collapse will occur before the U.S. elections and Trump will have to negotiate a bankruptcy.
        1. The CIA and Indonesia contacted Fulford before this interview specifically to ask Fulford to bring up President Kennedy’s Executive Order 11110 and state that it “is still there,” providing for stroke-of-the-pen gold-backed U.S. currency “and leave the Fed mess to the Khazazian mafia.”  Re-enactment of that Executive Order is their recommendation.  This would bring Asian backing.
        2. RDS points to Wayne Jett’s book The Fruits of Graft:  Great Depressions Then and Now,  stating that the Fed debt is on the private banks, not the U.S. citizen.  RDS says “we could nationalize the Fed, and NOT nationalize those Federal Reserve dollars….”
      5. RDS asks Fulford about the Chinese view.
        1. Fulford:
          1. Hillary Clinton had promised China “The United States of China,” handing over control of Japan and Asian to the Chinese and “that’s why they gave her lots of money and were surprised when she was not elected.”
          2. Trump could be better for Chinese, i.e. “with a whole new set-up for the planet, and a fair role for Asia.”
        2. In the 1980’s Fulford was studying the successful Japanese economic double-digit growth as a student.  Japan’s success was being dismantled by U.S.  The U.S. assassinated prime ministers, the U.S. shot down Japan Airlines Flight 123 (600 people), along with other disruptions.  The Japanese system had an economic planning agency at its heart—a hybrid between Communism and Capitalism where the government creates a framework and the private sector fills that framework.  Singapore—the third richest place on earth—and China both copied and improved upon this model.  Qatar and Luxembourg were cited as shills;  Singapore earns money through work and real economic development.  Fulford has been recommending such a system for a Western re-boot.
        3. Fulford cites the bankruptcy of the U.S. CORPORATION owned by “gangsters and satan-worshiping bankers” (many people have no clue as to this U.S. CORPORATION, the Act of 1871, and how USA/America has been actually ruled) as not terrible but actually “removing the nightmare.”  He makes an analogy to the fall of the USSR, and that “that would be a great thing for everybody.” This is a military fight;  we (the good guys) are winning, and they (the cabal) have hired mercenaries to stay in power.  Victory is only a matter of time.  RDS cites the parallel between a planning agency to his open source intelligence and open source engineering.
  7. 5-minute wrap-up
    1. RDS:  Will Palestine be returned to the Palestinians per Kissinger’s suggestion?
    2. Fulford:  Israel is militarily doomed.  The U.S. will no longer fight wars for Israel.  Israel will have no choice but to sue for a real peace and will end up in the protection of Turkey, Iran, and Egypt.
    3. RDS:  “I’ve distinguished between Zionism and Judaism for a long time.  The Supreme Leader of Iran recently made the same distinction, calling for the end of Israel.  Will Trump visit Iran before the election and make “the deal” with Iran’s Supreme Leader?
    4. Fulford:  The Jews need to realize that the Holocaust was caused by Zionists.  It was manufactured to fit the Gog vs. Magog Biblical battle and to drive the European Jews into Israel.  “If they (the Jews) don’t understand that, they’re never going to be free.”  The people of Israel will be allowed to live and prosper in peace with autonomy.  They just need to get rid of these fanatics.
    5. RDS interjects:  “I agree… I follow Rabbi Michael Lerner among many others.  It’s clear that many Jews now realize that Zionism is antithetical to Judaism.”
  8. RDS:  With 2 minutes left, what would you say to Donald Trump if you had his ear for two minutes alone in an elevator?
    1. Fulford:
      1. “Make a deal with the Asians for a Future Planning Agency for the planet;
      2. “Start multi-trillion-dollar projects to:
        1. End poverty;
        2. Stop environmental destruction (clean up the planet);  and
        3. Expand the human race into the universe.
      3. “That’s all I’d need to say.”
    2. RDS closes very graciously and says he’s looking forward to another visit with Fulford in Japan, praising Ben as an amazing human being.

New Silk Roads in Action

 

New Silk Roads in Action at China-Kazakh Border

Central Asia, between China and Europe, is bustling

By Pepe Escobar
Global Research

Click to read this article in your browser.

We are cruising on a pristine, 380 km-long four-lane superhighway from Almaty to Khorgos – finished in 2016 for $1.25 billion, 85% of the cost covered by a World Bank loan. And then, suddenly, riding parallel to us, there’s the real superstar of New Silk Road connectivity.

Meet Yuxinou, the container cargo train plying back and forth along the 11,000 km-long railway corridor connecting Chongqin in Sichuan province via Xinjiang and Kazakhstan to Russia, Belarus, Poland and finally Duisburg in the Ruhr valley. And all that in a mere 13 days.

Along the way, the Yuxinou stops in, among other places, Almaty, Bishkek, Tashkent, Tehran, Istanbul, Moscow and Rotterdam: a who’s who of Eurasian cities. It carries  laptops, BMWs, spare parts, clothes, machinery, international post packages, chemical products, medicine and medical instruments – all manner of goods, made in China and made in Europe. And all that for only 20% of air freight cost.

This operation platform is called Yuxinou (Chongqing) Logistics Co., Ltd., a joint venture among the railways of China, Russia, Kazakhstan and Germany and the Chongqin municipal government, which is quite proud of its “seamless integration of multinational railway logistics” – complete with a fast custom clearance procedure called “single declaration and inspection on entire journey.”

The key Yuxinou crossroads is the intersection between Alashankou, on the Chinese side of the Kasakh border, and Khorgos, a special economic zone in Kazakhstan. The whole project may be in its infancy. After all, the Belt and Road Initiative is still, according to Beijing’s detailed timetable, in the planning stage.

So Khorgos may still be far from metastasizing into the new Dubai, as the hype claimed a few years ago. But watching Khorgos in action is a fascinating experience, unparalleled in its usefulness for gauging Belt & Road’s potential. As much as the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, the northern part of which I traveled a year ago, this is one of the jewels in Belt & Road’s crown.

Hitting the malls

There are actually three places to take care of border-crossing buisness at Khorgos. I arrived, via the superhighway, at the exclusive crossing for container trucks. Then I visited the border crossing used by Kazakhs and Central Asians from everywhere, leading to a collection of duty-free mega shopping malls officially called the International Center for Boundary Cooperation (ICBC). Then there’s the train station in Altynkol, where Yoxinou stops as do the Urumqi-Almaty cargo/passenger trains. The actual SEZ – many buildings still under construction – is in the periphery of Khorgos.

The ICBC – 5.3 square kilometers housing five multi-story shopping malls with over 2,000 shops – is a sort of neutral no man’s land. If you’re Kazakh or Chinese, no visa is needed. But people from all over Central Asia also come – by bus, eager to take advantage of unlimited Made in China bargains.

The procedure is quite straightforward. Customers arrive usually in the early morning at a huge bus parking lot. They walk a short distance toward the very modern Kazakh customs building (on the day I visited, because of the bitter cold, it was virtually empty). Then they take a shuttle bus to the Chinese border, cross it with little or no bureaucracy (although the Central Asians, other than Kazakhs, do need visas), and hit the malls.

They come back at the end of the day fully loaded – excellent business for an army of packagers and porters. Then they board their buses returning to all points Kazakhstan and other “stans”. On busy days, especially in summer, there may be as many as 8,000 shoppers hitting the ICBC.

China’s top connectivity access to Central Asia and West Asia markets, and farther on down the road to Europe, is via Kazakhstan, which counts China as its second-largest trading partner. At the same time, it’s essential to consider that Khorgos is smack on the Xinjiang border, which implies maximum Chinese security alert.

Yet there’s nothing Orwellian about Khorgos. The CCP apparatus in far away Urumqi seems to understand pragmatically that the whole deal is all about a mega-mall, and not conducive to Uighur separatist shenanigans. And on top of it the really heavy business transits via Yuxinou. In the near future, it’s bound to evolve towards high-speed rail.

In terms of road traffic, container trucks conduct a hefty business at Khorgos – certainly more substantial than in other border crossings I visited, in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.

There are two China-Kyrgyzstan border crossings. The more established one, at Torugart, leads straight to the capital Bishkek and then Tashkent in Uzbekistan. The road was repaved with loans from the Export-Import Bank of China and the Asian Development Bank.

The ADB also provided the financing for an alternative route from Bishkek to Osh, along with an $850 million loan from the EXIM Bank. This road is quite something, cutting through Kyrgyz mountains and passes and eliminating at least 220 km of travel in comparison with the ancient road. China Road and Bridge Cooperation was in charge of the construction, including a 3.3 km-long tunnel.

But it’s still a tricky road; on the last mountain pass before the final dash towards Bishkek, my driver Alex and I spent hours negotiating a cornucopia of lorries gone sideways in the snow and a myriad of clueless drivers stuck without tire chains.

China & the ‘stans

The other China-Kyrgyz border crossing is at the Irkeshtam pass, It used to be the main southern branch of the ancient Silk Road, coming straight from Kashgar. The road was resurfaced in 2013, adding to a connectivity integration net linking Kyrgyzstan, Xinjiang and the Karakoram Highway in Pakistan. I crossed a steady convoy of Chinese container trucks coming from Irkeshtam.

There’s only one China-Tajikistan border crossing, at the top of the Kulma pass, 4,363 meters high. The actual Chinese border is 14 km away from the Tajik border, very close to the Karakoram Highway: another instance of close connectivity. This road was opened in 2004 and also follows the ancient Silk Road.

The whole road between the Kulma pass and the Tajik capital Dushanbe, which includes the legendary Pamir Highway (the subject of an upcoming two-part special), is still a (slow) work in progress. It’s funded by a $254 million loan from China’s EXIM Bank with work by China Road and Bridge Cooperation.

Just outside Dushanbe, as I was leaving for the Pamir Highway, I saw a multi-level road intersection built with a loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and another from the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank.

What I saw was in fact history in the making; this was the AIIB’s first-ever development loan. There will be many others, as the connectivity between China and its neighboring ‘stans hits overdrive.

NATO needed for what?

NATO’s Deep Political and Legal Crisis: Madness and Irrationality

The 2 Percent Goal as Defence Illiteracy

68

Political

NATO’s London Summit on December 3 and 4, 2019 displays the deep political crisis of the 70-year-old alliance: Only a dinner and a short meeting, no statement to be issued, quarrels among the leading military members, accusations, substantial differences on Syria and many other issues, the deepest-ever Transatlantic conflict and the usual issues of burden-sharing.

Legal

But the political dimension of NATO’s crisis is only one. There is also a legal crisis. You’ll recognize it if you care to read the NATO Treaty text – something academic and media people don’t generally seem to have done. They would then have noticed that the Alliance of 2019 consistently operates outside – indeed in violation of – its own goals, purposes and values. For instance, the UN Charter which should be NATO’s guideline has been violated on a permanent basis for decades – such as in its out-of-area bombings of Yugoslavia with no UN mandate.

The contempt shown for international law in general and the UN Charter in particular is an integral part of NATO’s existential crisis.

Moral

And, third, there is a moral dimension to NATO’s crisis. Of course, no one talks about it.

It’s the simple fact that no war that individual NATO members states or NATO as NATO have engaged in can be termed anything but predictable fiascos when judged by the alliance’s own stated goals and criteria – just think of Vietnam, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria… all crystal clear moral catastrophes causing unspeakable suffering, death and destruction to millions upon millions while achieving none of the stated goals that were set to explain and legitimize these wars such as creating democracy, respecting human rights, liberating women or stopping alleged genocides.

By now, the world should have been told enough lies about NATO’s benevolent motives, policies and actions for taxpaying citizens to mobilize resistance to it.

These three crises can all be related to the response of the Western world to the demise of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact 30 years ago – i.e. to the choice to expand NATO and exploiting the weakness of Russia.

Intellectual

The last and perhaps most-hidden-of-all crisis is NATO’s intellectual crisis.

It’s now an alliance that operates in a kind of echo chamber with little, or no, sense of the realities of the world. It’s there for its own sake. When you listen to its Secretary-General – not only Stoltenberg but Fogh Rasmussen and earlier ones – you sense a level of creativity and intellectualism that reminds you of leaders who also happened to be Secretaries-General such as, say, Leonid Breznev.

Irrespective of some little objective analysis of the situation, NATO sings only one tune: There are new threats all the time, we must arm more, we need new and better weapons and we must, therefore, increase military expenditures.

And how is it legitimized?

By uttering mantras. No matter what NATO and its members choose to do, it is simply stated without a trace of argument or documentation that more money will increase four things: Defence, security, stability and peace. And be good for basic Western values such as freedom, democracy and peace.

How come – the small boy watching the Emperor would ask – that no matter what NATO has done the last 70 years, it is still maintaining that it needs more to create that defence, security, stability and peace?

What’s wrong with a system that keeps applying the same medicine decade after decade and gets further and further from achieving the stipulated goal?

Military expenditures in general – no balance and no reality check

NATO’s main enemy is supposed to be Russia. It doesn’t matter that Russia’s military expenditures are about 6-7 % of NATO’s total expenditures (29 countries). It doesn’t matter that NATO’s technical quality is superior. It doesn’t matter that Russia’s military expenditures are falling year-by-year – decreased to US $ 64 billion in 2018 from US $ 66 billion in 2017. It doesn’t matter that Russia’s military expenditures averaged only US $ 45 billion from 1992 until 2018.

Only? Yes, NATO’s total budget is US $ 1036 billion of which the US stands for 649.

And it doesn’t matter that the old Warsaw Pact budget were some 65-75% of NATO’s during the first Cold War and we were told back then that some kind of balance was good for stability and peace. Today we are told that the more superiority NATO has, the better it is for world peace.

In short, reality doesn’t matter anymore to NATO.

The 2 per cent goal

And this is where the 2 per cent of GNP comes into play and reveals just how deep NATO’s crisis is. But have you seen anybody questioning this 2 per cent goal as the philosophical nonsense – or forgery – it is?

It resembles the Theatre of the Absurd to tie military expenditures to the economic performance of a country. Imagine a person sets off 10 % of her/his income to buy food. Suddenly he or she wins in a lottery or is catapulted into a job that yields a 5 times higher income. Should that person then also begin to eat 5 times more?

The 2 per cent goal is an absurdity, an indicator of defence illiteracy. People who take it serious – in politics, media and academia – obviously have never read a basic book about theories and concepts in the field of defence and security. Or about how one makes a professional analysis of what threatens a country.

If military expenditures are meant to secure a country’s future, do the threats that this country faces also vary according to its own GNP? Of course not! It is a bizarre assumption.

Decent knowledge-based defence policies should be decided on the basis of a comprehensive analysis of threats and contain dimensions such as:

What threatens our nation, our society now and along various time horizons? Which threats that we can imagine are so big that we can do nothing to meet them? Which are such that it is meaningful to set off this or that sum to feel reasonably safe? What threats seem so small or unlikely that we can ignore them?

What threats are most likely to go from latent to manifest? How do we prioritize among scarce resources when we have other needs and goals than feeling secure such as developing our economy, education, health, culture, etc.?

And, most importantly, two more consideration: What threats can be met with predominantly military means and which require basically civilian means? And how do we act today to prevent the perceived threats from becoming a reality that we have to face – how do we, within our means, prevent violence and reduce risks as much as possible.

All these questions should be possible to answer with the new mantra: Just always give the military 2 per cent of the GNP and everything will be fine?

The MIMAC

MIMAC is the Military-Industrial-Media-Academic Complex – the vested interests of small elites in symbiosis with governments which run on and benefit from bizarre standards like the 2 per cent goal.

One purpose of that goal is to make serious, empirical and relevant threat analysis irrelevant. It’s a perpetuum mobile – a way of securing that MIMAC always gets what it needs, no matter what the consequences are for thosee who pay it all, the citizens and their tax money.

Imagine that Russia disappeared from the earth tomorrow. And NATO would quickly find some other “enemy” by which to legitimate that it anyhow needs also 2 per cent of your BNP in the future. At least!

NATO Titanic

Its Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg two days ago announced this mind-boggling news, swallowed by media as the most natural thing of the world in need of no questions – read it on NATO’s homepage:

“Ahead of the meeting of NATO Leaders in London to mark the Alliance’s 70th anniversary, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Friday (29 November 2019) gave details of large increases in Allied defence spending. Mr. Stoltenberg announced that in 2019 defence spending across European Allies and Canada increased in real terms by 4.6 %, making this the fifth consecutive year of growth. He also revealed that by the end of 2020, those Allies will have invested $130 billion more since 2016. Based on the latest estimates, the accumulated increase in defence spending by the end of 2024 will be $400 billion. Mr. Stoltenberg said: “This is unprecedented progress and it is making NATO stronger.’ “

Read it carefully: NATO’s military expenditure increase 2016-2020 is US $ 130 billion – that is twice as much as Russia’s total annual budget!

There is only two words for it: Madness and irrationality. Madness in and of itself and madness when seen in the perspective of all the other problems humanity must urgently find funds to solve.

The total regular UN budget for the year 2016-17 was US $ 5.6 billion. That is, NATO countries spend 185 times more on the military than all the world does on the UN.

Do you find that sane and in accordance with the problems humanity need to solve? This author does not. I stand by the word madness. There exists no rational academic, empirical analysis and no theory that can explain NATO’s military expenditures as rational or in service of the common good of humankind.

The world’s strongest, nuclear alliance is a castle built on intellectual sinking sand. It’s a political, moral, legal and intellectual Titanic.

The only armament NATO needs is legal, moral and intellectual. And unless it now moves in this direction, it deserves to be dissolved.

The inverse proportion between its destructive power and its moral-intellectual power is – beyond any doubt – the largest single threat to humanity’s future.

This challenge is at least as serious and as urgent as is climate change.

Perhaps it is time to stop keeping NATO alive by taxpayers’ money and start a tax boycott in all NATO countries until it is dissolved or at least comes down to – say – one-tenth of its present wasteful military level? Not to speak of its bootprint destruction of the environment….

The two-day London NATO conference just ended – and calling it a NATO “crisis” is an understatement.
