Sustaining the Culture of Violence Through Wars

Sustaining the Culture of Violence Through Wars
By Erick San Juan
“Conditions today are the most perilous in world history. Global war is possible. The threat is real and ominous. Open discussion is suppressed. Media scoundrels won't touch it.” (Four More Years of War by Stephen Lendman)
Yes, no matter how we like to celebrate the coming New Year with so much fun and full of hope with our family, the glooming scenario of an impending war is inevitable. As much as we don’t want to be the messenger of gloom and doom, we just have to help the present government to be wary and read the writings on the wall as it kowtow (unfortunately) to a perceived master in the process.
In the article of Lendman, the warning of then US President Dwight Eisenhower was  mentioned regarding the military-industrial-Complex, to quote, “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” (Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1961 Speech)
According to Lendman the warning of Eisenhower was ignored and the military-industrial-complex (M-I-C) did prevail and persisted up to the present US leadership.
"Every gun that is made, every war ship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, from those who are cold and not clothed.
Today's legacy is force-fed austerity. Health and public welfare are sacrificed on the altar of America's addiction. Obama has plenty more in mind. Wars of choice are planned.
Since WW II, none of necessity existed. America is masterful at inventing enemies when none exist. No matter how many times people are fooled, they're easy prey to convince alleged threats must be challenged.” (Ibid)
There seems to be no end to the existing culture of violence that was highlighted after 9-11 which guise as the war on terror, started by Bush and being continued up to this very day by the Obama second term presidency. It’s very clear to the recently approved (by the US Senate) 2013 budget that has allotted $633 billion for US defense. Every year the federal budget has been allotting 58 percent for its military and/or defense expenditures, both domestic and abroad.
As what Valentin Zorin (a political observer) wrote “The country’s state debt is growing at a fast rate. And judging by the newly approved 2013 budget, Washington has no intention of ending the arms race. At present, the US military expenditure exceeds combined military spending of all other countries.
Experts attribute the current difficulties experienced by the US economy to the fact that it cracked under the burden of military spending, which proved too heavy for it, if not outright intolerable. According to the US Treasury Department, the unprecedented $17 trillion debt will increase to $19 trillion in the foreseeable future and exceed 100% of the country’s current GDP. On top of that, Boston University Professor Laurence Kotlikoff has established that the US budget deficit is larger than the officially reported amounting to a whopping $200 trillion.”
In order to sustain the big business in the M-I-C, war is a necessity and an outside enemy is needed to justify the huge spending.
Just like what retired United States Marine Corps Major General and two time Medal of Honor recipient Smedley D. Butler wrote in his speech and in his booklet – War Is A Racket that “he frankly discusses from his experience as a career military officer how business interests commercially benefit from warfare.”
Being run by racketeers profiting from war materials – “the military-industrial complex has turned the arms race into an endless source of profit for weapon manufacturers and dictate policies to those in power. All hopes and election pledges on the part of aspiring politicians drown in this strive for profit who gains the upper hand defying people’s interests and the requirements of the common sense.” (Prof. Valentin Zorin, Political Observer of The Voice of Russia)
As they profit from this endless war games, the culture of violence is being sustained and those countries being part and parcel in this ‘game’  maybe wittingly or unwittingly, will find themselves in a debt trap and their poor citizens will suffer the deadly consequences.
People will keep on repeating history if they will not heed to several salient points being given by past leaders and distinguished military men; and then, humanity will be the one to make its own apocalypse in the process.
 Be very vigilant new year to all!

Delayed Apocalypse by Erick San Juan

Delayed Apocalypse by Erick San Juan

When humanity entered the month of December, perhaps there is only one thing on their minds, will the world end on December 21? The hype as propagated by the internet fear mongers especially those social networking sites has affected portions of the netizens and non-netizens alike.  And December 21 has passed and so was the rumor-mongering that has sowed fear to many.

Although something did happen for real, the successful rocket launch of North Korea last December 12 that has caught everyone by surprise. The time frame was given for the said launch but still the world didn’t know that it will happen that soon. The United Sates and its allies were quick to condemn North Korea for such action and NoKor has violated the United Nations ban on "any launch using ballistic missile technology."

Remember in April, after the failed rocket launch of North Korea, the UN Security Council has demanded Pyongyang a halt to any further launches using ballistic missile technology and expressed its determination to take action in the event of another launch. Now that NoKor has done it (again) successfully this time, a new round of sanctions are being discussed by the UN Security Council.

Here at home, the third Philippines and US Bilateral Strategic Dialogue was held last December 11-12 and both countries “strongly condemned the rocket launch by North Korea utilizing ballistic missile technology and emphasized that this highly provocative act is in direct violation of relevant UN Security Council Resolutions, contravenes North Korea’s international obligations, and undermines the global non-proliferation regime. Given this current threat to regional security, both sides will strengthen and increase their close alliance coordination.” (Source: Dept. of Foreign Affairs website)

The said Bilateral Strategic Dialogue was the reason why the US officials were here namely, Assistant Secretary of State Kurt M. Campbell and Assistant Secretary of Defense Mark W. Lippert, while for their counterparts here are Foreign Affairs Undersecretary for Policy Erlinda Basilio and National Defense Undersecretary Pio Lorenzo Batino.

What concerns many is the increased rotational presence of US troops in the country vis-à-vis the warships and aircrafts that will freely come and go as they pleased. Will there be any conditions or prohibitions for this said additional military presence in the country?

According to Defense Undersecretary Pio Lorenzo Batino – “modifying the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) is not necessary for the increase in the number of US military ships, aircraft and troops rotating through the Philippines since everything is being viewed as an implementation of the Mutual Defense Treaty and the Visiting Forces Agreement. We can’t go into specifics but of course as mentioned. both parties agreed that everything that will be implemented should be in accordance with the Philippine Constitution, the US Constitution and pertinent laws.” (Source:

The above-mentioned statement by the DND undersecretary

is perceived as another rhetoric, nice to hear but in the midst of too much tensions in the SCS or the West Philippine Sea, we just cannot afford to have such deception coming from the government’s trusted official.

We have witnessed a lot of incidents in the past wherein US soldiers has committed violations of the Mutual Defense Treaty (MDT) and Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) and even our own constitution. Not to include the recent dumping of ‘toxic wastes’ in our waters.

The bottom line here is – until we suffer another accident or dilemma courtesy of Uncle Sam’s soldiers, we will keep on repeating history of being shortchanged in the process. And, I will never get tired of reminding this government that all these agreements (treaties) we made with the Americans were not ratified by the US Senate and only  binding as Executive Agreement. Like this so-called Bilateral Strategic Dialogue, where in the Second Dialogue, and in the Philippines-US 2+2 meeting in Washington last April, it was agreed upon that there will be an increased both of the rotational US troops and military exercises in the country. So, where does the entire nation’s populace fit in this scenario, where only the top level officials talked about making the whole archipelago as “the Uncle’s military outpost and doormat” in this region? Are we going to be sacrificed again?

The whole nation is being put in the cross-hairs by our own trusted officials. We have to be vigilant as we enter the new year of more exciting times. We might be caught unaware because we did not do our role in helping the present leadership realize the need for more patriotism and nationalism to save our sovereignty.

Many cynics believe that the doubling of military budgets by big powers could be a preparation for something else. Some pundits are saying that this could be our last Christmas festivities before World war 3 erupt.

May God bless us all. Happy holidays!

Is Philippines Part of the HAARP Wittingly?

 Is Philippines Part of the HAARP Wittingly? 
 By Erick San Juan

Rescuers from different government and private agencies are still looking for missing persons who were victims of typhoon Pablo which devastated the southern part of the country and even had its disastrous stop over in some areas in the north. The death reached nine hundred and still counting. We have mentioned the equally deadly effects of man made disasters that had caused the death of hundreds of our fellowmen and still no accountability or whatsoever from the culprits.
As the country suffered from Pablo’s wrath, nations from all over the world met at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, a 12-day conference the goal of which is to curb global warming via human carbon emissions. And at the end of the said conference, there was no clear solution to the problem and large nations like the US and China did not agree to extend the Kyoto Protocol that will end on December 31 of this year.
Methinks that no matter how big and extensive the gatherings of world leaders to address the problems of climate change and/or global warming if they will ignore the most crucial factor of such ‘unexplainable’ disasters, they will never find the right solution.
I am referring to the man made HAARP - High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program which is an ionospheric research program jointly funded by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, the University of Alaska, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
Built by BAE Advanced Technologies (BAEAT), its purpose is to analyze the ionosphere and investigate the potential for developing ionospheric enhancement technology for radio communications and surveillance. The HAARP program operates a major sub-arctic facility, named the HAARP Research Station, on an Air Force–owned site near Gakona, Alaska.
The most prominent instrument at the HAARP Station is the Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI), a high-power radio frequency transmitter facility operating in the high frequency (HF) band. The IRI is used to temporarily excite a limited area of the Ionosphere. Other instruments, such as a VHF and a UHF radar, a fluxgate magnetometer, a digisonde, and an induction magnetometer, are used to study the physical processes that occur in the excited region.
Work on the HAARP Station began in 1993. The current working IRI was completed in 2007, and its prime contractor was BAE Systems Advanced Technologies. As of 2008, HAARP had incurred around $250 million in tax-funded construction and operating costs.
HAARP has been blamed by conspiracy theorists for a range of events, including numerous natural disasters. Mainstream commentators dismiss such allegations as "uninformed." (Source :
Are HAARP – related disasters were just the fruit of some conspiracy theorists’ imagination? Were the mainstream media’s allegations correct that those who points to HAARP as the culprit were simply ‘uninformed’?
To be uninformed in this age of super high technology is just a big no-no, it’s unacceptable especially among the media people. Actually there is too much information on the internet that any individual can chew with just one sitting. And that’s the beauty of the internet, (as I’ve always say), those evil-minded people who think they are gods can no longer hide their evil schemes. With the help of patriotic citizens around the world, I am still optimistic that the good can overcome evil. With the likes of my staunch listener/friend, relatives and others who take time and effort in exposing the evil plans of depopulation, these evildoers will never succeed.
In these exciting times (some say the end times), we will be witnessing a lot of changes that are usually the works of Mother Nature, but because of HAARP, Mother Nature this time has taken the backseat.  With HAARP Technology 2.0 – miniaturized HAARP can now be spread around the world, translation – can be used for war and/or weather manipulation.
HAARP Technology 2.0
Are miniaturized versions of the world’s largest ionospheric heater (HAARP) all around us modifying the weather? Have electromagnetic frequency generators been installed over major fault lines waiting to trigger massive earthquakes? Has our military developed a super weapon that can vaporize entire cities with lightning from the ionosphere? There is evidence that this technology exists and is being deployed.
Way back in 1995, when the seminal book by Dr. Nick Begich and Jeane Manning 'Angels Don’t Play this HAARP' was released, the putative inventor of HAARP, Dr. Bernard Eastlund, speculated that it is ‘entirely possible’ that such technology had already been miniaturized.
Aviation Week reported in 2008 that an airborne version of HAARP had been developed which is towed ‘behind a helicopter.’
The Sea-based X-band Radar (SBX) floating platform utilizes HAARP technology. Here is the Wikipedia listing:
Little HAARPs modifying the local weather?
Scientists at the University of California Los Angeles and the High Power Auroral Stimulation (HIPAS) Observatory in Alaska have assembled a new generation of ionospheric heaters. This technology, known as ‘Hertzian antennas,’ can, “…match or exceed the peak power of the new HAARP system for a fraction of its cost.” Though most implementations are not capable of producing all of the complex, phased signals produced by facilities like HAARP at Gakona, Alaska or the antenna array at Jicamarca, Peru.
All these antennas could be controlled from a central location such as Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
This proposed scenario jibes with the scientists at the HAARP facility who say that their ionospheric heater antenna array goes largely unused. If a network of smaller antennas across the country is handling the day-to-day dirty work, then the HAARP array may only be used occasionally for big jobs such as the Japan earthquake or hurricane Sandy.
Great financial and political gain may be achieved through disasters such as earthquakes. In the catastrophe reinsurance market, one can make a lot of money from a disaster. Governments have been known to seize power through declarations of emergency and subsequent ‘relief’ efforts. (Source: Peter A. Kirby from Activist Post)
Incidentally, Sea-based and land- based X-band Radars are being installed in different parts of the Pacific region. Now we have this new HAARP that may be used for war or weather engineering via these radars. Where in the world can you see a typhoon which can make a U-turn. Sadly, leaders like the one in the Palace allowed the use of these radars just to make the ‘uncle’ happy. Are these leaders dumb not to know the hidden agenda of the super elite? Just asking. Be ever be vigilant...

Fear Mongering at Its Best

Fear Mongering at Its Best
By Erick San Juan
The netizens are now being bombarded with reports of the so-called end of the world or the beginning of the new age based on the Mayan calendar. Such doomsday scenario is being posted on the internet from bloggers to not so reliable news reports – all to sow fear amongst the world’s populace. Reports also connect the recent calamities from hurricanes to earthquakes to the forthcoming ‘end of the world’ scenario. We never learned on how we were duped to spend to online all our computers to evade the Y2k computer collapse "kuno" last 2000.
Fear mongering continues as more and more individuals believe in the lies being propagated by these  global ‘terrorists’. Like the ones in the recently concluded UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, a 12-day conference of 200 nations to curb global warming via human carbon emissions into the atmosphere held at Doha in Qatar from November 26 to December 8. After the said event, press releases were carried by mainstream media parroting the doom and gloom scenario.
Annually such meeting is being held in order to sustain the global warming (interchangeably climate change) hoax and for as long as there are world leaders adhering to such foolishness, the deception will continue.
As what Alex Newman, a foreign correspondent for The New American online said :
“…. recent efforts to exploit fear by climate alarmists and UN bureaucrats seeking to blame “global warming” for weather events like Hurricane Sandy, for example, are absurd on their face, according to Lord Monckton and a wide array of experts. In reality, these sorts of bogus claims are nothing more than fear mongering aimed at drumming up hysteria and duping the public to facilitate a global agreement that would benefit the UN, power-hungry governments, dictatorships, and elements of “Big Business” — all at the expense of humanity, science, prosperity, liberty, national sovereignty, and real environmental problems.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Reports are the ‘scientific’ source of claims for more severe and extreme weather,” observed Dr. Tim Ball, a climate scientist who has been one of the more prominent experts to challenge the UN’s dubious theories aside from former IPCC experts themselves. “In fact the incidence and severity of extreme weather — hurricanes, wind storms, tornadoes, heat waves, drought, floods, ice storms, etc. — have not generally increased recently and are well within long term natural variability.
Despite those facts, top UN officials continue to make blatantly false claims about climate, warning that if governments refuse to promptly force their populations to submit to the outlandish demands, certain disaster awaits. The tone is only getting more and more hysterical, too. Last month, before the COP18 began in Doha, even UN boss Ban Ki-moon himself made those same absurd allegations, damaging his remaining credibility further; possibly beyond repair.”
Sadly, even our own climate envoy to the UN convention, Naderev Sano was believed to be taken for a ride blaming the climate change hoax on the devastation brought about by the onslaught of typhoon Pablo in the country. But most activists like Sano are foreign funded through NGO's. Actually, Pablo is a wake up call to all government officials, elected and appointed to address the perennial man-made problem like illegal logging, etc. that has caused and will cause disasters to all of us.
It is natural that our country is being visited by not less than twenty typhoons per year and any excuses coming from the national and local leaders are not acceptable when it comes to saving lives or preventing such disaster to claim lives.
Corruption is still prevalent and after every disaster there is no accountability or whatsoever from responsible officials who allow such deaths to occur. The solutions are not in any ‘superbody’ like the United Nations, it is right within our reach, our own leaders’ commitment to serve the country’s citizens and give them protection whenever there’s a calamity.
So, instead of Naderev Sano’s appeal prop to the world at the UN convention to find solutions to the impacts of climate change, Sano should appeal to the present administration to do it's role to avoid the loss of more precious lives. It’s still all about accountability, stupid!
And if we will continue to ride the deception of the fear mongerers, the death toll will continue to rise and in the end we will ask dumbly, what hit us?
Let us all be vigilant and think twice before believing the lies being fed to us, there are a lot of them especially on the internet. We have to study and conduct research on our own in order to balance the different views being presented to us. An intelligent mind cannot be deceived easily. God bless us all.
