Victims of Israel’s restrictions

WASHINGTON – The International Monetary Fund said Wednesday that Israel’s tight restrictions hinder the growth of the Palestinian private sector, holding back the Palestinian economy.

In a report following a mission to the West Bank and Gaza, the IMF said it expected growth in the Palestinian economy to slow this year to about 4.25 percent, with little progress expected in cutting unemployment from the current 24 percent.

The report said the Palestinians need to build the private sector in an economy dominated by spending by the authorities, mainly the Palestinian Authority, heavily dependent on foreign aid to surmount a chronic deficit.

“Persistent Israeli controls and obstacles on internal movement, exports, and imports in the West Bank, as well…

From time immemorial, royalty, priest classes and other self-appointed elites have used any means necessary to dominate the population and keep it divided amongst itself. Alex Jones uses the games of chess, risk and monopoly to explain the classic modes of control used by rulers, representing classic warfare between two factions, world warfare with a complex conflict, and, of course, economic warfare.

Now those techniques have advanced with sophistication into an era of full spectrum dominance– where gaming the people means an attempt to control all facets of life. Under the modern scientific dictatorship, nations, individuals, economies, cultures and environments have all become pawns at the hands of hardened, evil offshore globalists bent on manipulating our world. Their aim is nothing short of completing their break away civilization and destroying the remains, including killing off the great masses of humanity. They have willingly distorted our…

Truth, Propaganda and Media Manipulation

Never before has it been so important to have independent, honest voices and sources of information. We are – as a society – inundated and overwhelmed with a flood of information from a wide array of sources, but these sources of information, by and large, serve the powerful interests and individuals that own them. The main sources of information, for both public and official consumption, include the mainstream media, alternative media, academia and think tanks.

 

The mainstream media is the most obvious in its inherent bias and manipulation. The mainstream media is owned directly by large multinational corporations, and through their boards of directors are connected with a plethora of other major global corporations and elite interests. An example of these connections can be seen through the board of Time Warner.

 

Time Warner owns Time Magazine, HBO, Warner Bros., and CNN, among many others. The board of directors includes individuals past or presently affiliated with: the Council on Foreign Relations, the IMF, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Warburg Pincus, Phillip Morris, and AMR Corporation, among many others.

 

Two of the most “esteemed” sources of news in the U.S. are the New York Times (referred to as “the paper of record”) and the Washington Post. The New York Times has on its board people who are past or presently affiliated with: Schering-Plough International (pharmaceuticals), the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Chevron Corporation, Wesco Financial Corporation, Kohlberg & Company, The Charles Schwab Corporation, eBay Inc., Xerox, IBM, Ford Motor Company, Eli Lilly & Company, among others. Hardly a bastion of impartiality.

And the same could be said for the Washington Post, which has on its board: Lee Bollinger, the President of Columbia University and Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York; Warren Buffett, billionaire financial investor, Chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway; and individuals associated with (past or presently): the Coca-Cola Company, New York University, Conservation International, the Council on Foreign Relations, Xerox, Catalyst, Johnson & Johnson, Target Corporation, RAND Corporation, General Motors, and the Business Council, among others.

 

It is also important to address how the mainstream media is intertwined, often covertly and secretly, with the government. Carl Bernstein, one of the two Washington Post reporters who covered the Watergate scandal, revealed that there were over 400 American journalists who had “secretly carried out assignments for the Central Intelligence Agency.” Interestingly, “the use of journalists has been among the most productive means of intelligence-gathering employed by the CIA.” Among organizations which cooperated with the CIA were the “American Broadcasting Company, the National Broadcasting Company, the Associated Press, United Press International, Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Scripps-Howard, Newsweek magazine, the Mutual Broadcasting System, the Miami Herald and the old Saturday Evening Post and New York Herald-Tribune.”

By far the most valuable of these associations, according to CIA officials, have been with the New York Times, CBS and Time IncThe CIA even ran a training program “to teach its agents to be journalists,” who were “then placed in major news organizations with help from management.”
 

These types of relationships have continued in the decades since, although perhaps more covertly and quietly than before. For example, it was revealed in 2000 that during the NATO bombing of Kosovo, “several officers from the US Army’s 4th Psychological Operations (PSYOPS) Group at Ft. Bragg worked in the news division at CNN’s Atlanta headquarters.” This same Army Psyop outfit had “planted stories in the U.S. media supporting the Reagan Administration’s Central America policies,” which was described by the Miami Herald as a “vast psychological warfare operation of the kind the military conducts to influence a population in enemy territory.” These Army PSYOP officers also worked at National Public Radio (NPR) at the same time. The US military has, in fact, had a strong relationship with CNN.

Last year i was lent a book that i found intriguing. An old Conspiracy Theory book written and published in 1977 titled, “Mystery 666.” I had it on the bookshelf for about 2-3 weeks before i actually opened it up and took a look, and to my amazement, most of the book is actually quite relevant still in today’s society. The Rockerfellers, The Rothschild, The Bilderbergs, are all still going on.

Typically i don’t see myself as a Conspiracy Theorist and usually seek the logical explanation for things. However, in the last year or 2, research hours that have consumed me have led me around revolving circles back to conspiracy theory subjects, so into the rabbits hole i fell.

So with the information at hand, and being told it was possibly a banned book, i immediately wrote to the Author of the book, via a quick google search i was easily able to find the author and contacts. I wasted no time in asking for permission to redistribute parts of this book relevant to today’s society.

Don. E Stanton quickly replied and gave me permission to reproduce the parts from this book that are relevant to today, considering most of the book is relevant to today, i am fortunate that i am able to freely make this information public, as i am unsure how many of these books are still in existence.

The Book is written by Don. E. Stanton from the Maranatha Revival Crusade and is a non profit faith ministry. Below are some downloadable PDF Ebooks direct from Mystery 666.  You can also visit the Maranatha Revival Crusade website and download other useful Ebooks that are available regarding Conspiracy Theories.

I intend to use this information for Sharing Purposes Only. What people beleive is totally at their own discretion. But i do advise, you have a brain of your own, think outside what it is forcefed by Main Stream Media, Research things, do not take as gospel things that reporters are PAID to tell you. We have seen over the last 10 years (thanks to Wikileaks) just exactly how governments lie and decieve us.

You be the judge, Educate Yourself.
