UG#713 - The Deep State in Western Europe, 1972-1986 (The Vicious Cercle...)

13-08-2015 18:50

This week, a range of materials from scholarly articles to YouTube videos sheds some light on the murky world of post-WW2 deep political intrigue in Europe. The NATO run Operation Gladio is our point of departure, but False Flags are just the most dramatic of many forms of psychological warfare. In our second hour we look at an even now relatively little known group called "Le Cercle" which appears to have been actively engaged in similarly Machiavellian political manipulation carried out in many of the self-styled "democracies" of Western Europe.

The unknown soldiers of the strange war

The unknown soldiers of the strange war

Swedish veterans of the war in Donbass have confirmed the participation of officers from the EU and NATO member states in war hostilities in eastern Ukraine

Is there anything in the world worse than war? It may be only the sort of war where the truth is sacrificed to fit propagandistic agenda of the opposing sides. This is exactly the case with the present conflict in Ukraine Amid lack of information the words of the direct eyewitnesses to the events, right from the spot, are only welcomed, just like those revelations of the Swedish participants of fighting in Donbass.

Sadly enough, substantial part of the forum reports has been subject to censorship as the stuff mostly contradicting the official version of the events in Ukraine. The general line of this censorship may be easily defined from the numerous pro-Ukrainian comments (with the wide use of Cyrillic symbols in them), actually giving a lead in discussions. Some exempted stuff was preserved in the Google cache, something failed to come through indexation and was lost. Still, the level of western countries’ involvement in the civil war in Ukraine is being visibly restored now.

The key moment in the discussion is the factual acknowledgement of the fact that some commissioned officers and secret services’ staffers from European countries are available now in the Ukrainian volunteer units.

07-08-2015 17:16

Burnham is probably the strongest of the three Blairite candidates vying for the Labour Leadership.

New research has been published into the suicide rate of the mentally ill. This show he increased suicides among middle-aged men, 45-54 years old, being treated in the community in England, by a whopping 73%.

UG#712 - Facing The Failing Culture Of Control - 5 (Deep State Control Freakery)

07-08-2015 15:16

Our series on the failure of control returns to Unwelcome Guests core topics - trying to make sense of deep events and the shady dealings of deep political insiders. Although we cover a wide range of malfeasance, all the material we cover relates more or less directly to various actions by the Deep State. We hear Sander Hicks on a range of Sep. 11th related topics (many of them new to the show), followed by Russ Baker on the Boston Marathon Bombing. We conclude with a recent overview of the deep state from Peter Dale Scott and a short segment from commercially-controlled media noting that even 6 years after the event, no explanation has been forthcoming of the E-4B that flew over the White House on the morning of 9/11.
