Treachery and Blackmail by Erick San Juan

Treachery and Blackmail by Erick San Juan

Former DILG Sec. Rafael Alunan III shared in his Facebook account a game changer article of Ms. Yun Sun, a fellow with East Asia Program at Stimson Center entitled, 'China's New Calculation in SCS.' She claimed that China's unilateral actions in asserting it's claims in South China Sea have driven regional tensions to a new high. Sun said that China's well calculated moves are motivated by multiple internal and external factors.

"These include boosting Pres. Xi Jinping's prestige and authority for his domestic reform agenda, along with an assumption that the US is EXTREMELY UNLIKELY TO INTERVENE at this moment in time. Other than the overt actions to assert its claims in the South China Sea, official statements and legal studies analysis within China also reflect a RECALIBRATED DETERMINATION to uphold the country's controversial 9-dashed line in SCS."

"From a chinese perspective, the most transparent and direct explanation of China's rising assertiveness in the South China Sea is simple. China believes that its past unilateral restraint has done nothing to improve China's position regarding SCS disputes and these inactions have in fact resulted in othet claimant countries strengthening their presence and claims. Therefore, for China to improve it's position in the current climate or for future negotiations, it must first change the status quo through ALL AVAILABLE MEANS NECESSARY."

"China prefers to utilize civilian and paramilitary approaches but does not reject MILITARY COERCION if required. An advanced position and certain exclusive privilege in the SCS are both believed to be indispensable for China's aspiration to become a 'strong maritime power', a key task stipulated by the 18th Party Congress in 2012 and a policy personally endorsed by Pres. Xi. While China's aspirations for a 'blue water navy' and naval expansion face multiple choke points along its east coast from Japan down to the Philippines, the SCS is considered to offer China a much larger and less constrained maritime domain for naval maneuvers."

Sun cited the timing of China's policy to change the status quo and pursue  a strong maritime power status has existed and that the timing of China's most recent actions is closely associated with Chinese domestic politics to strengthen  Pres. Xi's domestic power base especially his reported fight against corruption where the oppositors claim that Xi is also stained with graft and corruption as exposed by Bloomberg.

"Therefore, Xi needs as much foreign policy credits as possible to build his strong man image and defuse internal criticisms of his various domestic agendas."

"Last but not least, China is behaving assertively in SCS because it believes it can. This assessment is not only based on China's growing military capacity which dwarfs the capabilities of all other South East Asian claimant countries combined, but also on A STRONG CONVICTION IN CHINA THAT THE U.S. WILL NOT USE IT'S HARD POWER TO COUNTER CHINESE ACTIONS. China has watched closely the U. S. hesitation about military intervention in Syria, also in Ukraine and draws the conclusion that the OBAMA ADMINISTRATION DOES NOT WANT TO INVOLVE ITSELF IN A MILITARY CONFLICT. It is further believed that there is NO DESIRE WITHIN THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION FOR A POLICY LEGACY THAT INCLUDES A CONFLICT WITH CHINA."

Sun added, "Having said that, China does recognize the difference between Ukraine, which is not a member of NATO and the Philippines which is a U.S. ally. However, when China seized control of the Scarborough Shoal in 2012, the U.S. DID NOTHING. Furthermore, as Madame Fu Ying, chairperson of China's Foreign Affairs Committee of the National People's Congress, pointed out recently at the Singapore's Shangri-la Dialogue, the dispute between China and Vietnam HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE U.S. The implied message is that Vietnam is not even a U.S. ally and the LIKELIHOOD OF U.S. MILITARY INTERVENTION ON BEHALF OF VIETNAM IS EXTREMELY REMOTE, if not non-existent."

Sun concluded that even if the UN international tribunal supports the Philippine claims, China will not accept the result and it will be very difficult and impossible for the UN court to enforce its ruling. "Whether others like it or not, China is getting what it wants."

Thanks to the timely open-secret deal of businessman Manny V. Pangilinan with China's CNOOC regarding the joint exploration of the Sampaguita oil and gas field. It was a long delayed joint project of CNOOC with Forum Energy and MVP's Philex Petroleum with the blessing of the Philippine government. It will now push thru as per news report. It was allegedly a deal that was almost forfeited due to the bullying of China. It was also an open-secret that the ABC5 TV network of MVP exposed PNoy's administration's 'deal' at Malampaya ( televised twice and exposed by Luchie Cruz Valdes) where billions of pesos were lost during the time of GMA  and during the watch of PNoy. P137 billion was on the record of the treasury. But during the senate hearing chaired by Sen. Ralph Recto, national treasurer Rosalia de Leon said that there was no cash on hand and possibly the funds were co-mingled with other funds. Sounds familiar, just like what happened to the sale of Fort Bonifacio for the AFP modernization.

According to pundits, this was the reason why China stopped bullying us despite the reported secret arrangement between the U.S. and China as interpreted by Yun Sun of Stimson Center.

Even the chicken hawks at the DFA suddenly change their stand and it's priority now is to ensure peace in the West Philippine Sea amid rising territorial conflict with China.(PDI 7/28/14)  According to Amando Doronila of PDI, the Pew Center  just conducted a study in 44 countries that this year, in all 11 Asian nations polled, roughly half or more say they are concerned that the disputes between China and her neighbors will lead to a military conflict. As reported by Agence France-Presse (7/28/14), found that 93% Filipinos were most concerned, including the Japanese, Vietnamese and South Koreans. In China, the poll showed that 62% of chinese were worried that the row could lead to war.

The release of the study is suspect. We have to be wary as to the hidden agenda of powers behind the scene. Will PNoy suffer the same fate like what happened to GMA who signed several deals with China?

Let's wait for the possible confluence of events to unfold. It could be ominous that PNoy's SONA (State of the Nation Address) last Monday was like a farewell speech especially that the month of August has been a bad omen to the Aquino family. So many phenomena of tragedies happened in the past and could be the reason why the Aquino sisters are really worried and crying.  It is also called by the Chinese as 'ghost month'.

God forbid!

Fingerpointing:Which is Which by Erick San Juan

  Fingerpointing:Which is Which by Erick San Juan

While watching TV last week, CNN reported that another Malaysian Airlines plane crashed. I was puzzled and kept on thinking as to what bad luck struck the Malaysian Airlines that it's planes would end up in tragedy. Both MH370, the jet that disappeared at the Indian Ocean vicinity and the MH17 are Boeing 777. But talking through experience, as a frequent flier, I believe that the Boeing 777 is the most safest and comfortable plane being used by international airlines.

What went wrong? It's unusual that both the local and international media were used for attack and counter propaganda. The blame game started the same night after the crash. A word war ensued between the Ukraine and the separatists kicked off immediately.

Of course, the Filipino people condemned the carnage in the strongest manner. At the Manila Bulletin headline on July 20,2014, it says: Obama blames Russia. Separatists would not be capable of carrying attack without Moscow's support. Basically, all the banner headlines of several broadsheets have the same tone.  But the internet news analysis, opinions and bloggers are saying a different thing. Are the Americans and Russians being set up to clash and create a global chaos?

It's quite amazing that some people in the vicinity of the crash site recorded a video so soon and after the crash. Ukraine accused Russia  and it's pro-Moscow rebels of destroying evidence from the wreckage and shotdown the passenger jet with a missile. But an American blogger, Tom A. sent me a You tube video (July19,2014), showing that Ukraine was caught trying to 'frame Russia' for shooting down Malaysian Airlines flight MH17. The Ukraine government supported a You Tube clip that they say proved Russia had involvement and that the rebels shot down the said plane. However, due to their sloppy work,  the Ukraine's have been caught in video lying. They have reportedly  tried deleting the You Tube file, but not before it was down loaded over 800 times.  As of this writing July 23, CNN TV News confirmed that the two Ukraine fighter jets tailing the strayed Malaysian plane were both shot down near the crash site. Who did? article said that an eyewitness account last July 18,2014 confirmed that a Spanish air controller working at Kiev Borispol Airport suggested in a private evaluation and basing it on military sources in Kiev, that the Ukrainian military was behind the shoot down. Radar records were immediately confiscated after it became clear that a commercial plane was shot down. Radar screen shots also showed an unexplained change of course of the said jet. The change of course took the jet directly over the eastern Ukraine war zone. Agence France Presse reported the fingerpointing, saying  that the western media to blame the self-defense forces of the Peoples Republic of Donetsk for bringing the plane down. The claim were denied by the representatives of PRD, saying that it's the Ukrainian military which destroyed the aircraft. Even IHS Jane's Defence analyst, Nick de Larrinaga shared the belief that the forces of PRD lack the capability to bring the Malaysian jet down. It was seconded by Retired Brig. Gen.  Kevin Ryan, the director of the Defense and Intelligence project at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, that the self defense forces could not have used 'Buk' surface to air missile system to down the said plane.

While the blame game continue to unravel, Jim Stone, a blogger and a freelance reporter made a compelling revelation and analysis that the airplane shot down over the Ukraine was actually the Malaysian Airlines flight 370 and not MH 17. While Yoichi Shimatsu, an investigative reporter, a science and technology journalist based in Hongkong and former editor of Japan Times weekly in Tokyo, now writing for, made a very powerful accusation that flight MH 17 was in fact a bioweapon, intended to be used in Malaysia. This is reportedly a payback by the Israelis for the acidic and uncomplimentary comments of former Prime Minister Mahathir and creating an international war crimes tribunal in Kuala Lumpur.

Shimatsu narrated that one must dare to think the unthinkable because the early evidences from the crash sites indicated a hellish scenario beyond imagining. Besides, the nearly 300 passengers aboard the ill-fated Malaysian jet, the plane's cargo bay was loaded with dozens of infected corpses drained of their blood and countless packets of possibly virus contaminated blood serum. The report allegedly came from the local eyewitnesses near the crash site in the Donetsk region along Ukraine-Russian border. He added that the gruesome finding points irrefutably to Malthusian skullduggery at the highest level of who is sponsoring a covert biological warfare program against the population of Asia. A systematic investigation is now required to uncover the deadliest plot against humanity. Yoichi believe that there could be a cover up to protect the globalist elite from scrutiny, legal prosecution and justice. According to Yoichi, the blatant violation of international laws for transporting infectious agents indicate a criminal intent in their use at destination. The IATA and the World Health Organization failed in monitoring and imposing tight rules for physical transfer of corpses and infectious substance which could be used for biowarfare. Dead passengers of the plane included some 100 top virus researchers and staff members. Rebel commander, Igor Girson aka Strelkov, (was quoted by Associated Press), reported that local villagers who rushed to the crash scene found a "significant number of the dead bodies found weren't fresh" and reeked of decomposition.  Shimatsu and Stone both believed that the corpses can be nothing other than carriers of infectious disease and threat to public health for millions of people of Ukraine and nearby countries even as far as Greece.

The MH17 crash in Ukraine could have been described as the start of a real World War Z, the movie. The WHO was allegedly shipping it's 'zombie' passengers for a criminal purpose, possibly genocide on a wide scale. The nightmare arose from one of the busiest airports of Europe and one controlled by ITCS, a security company allegedly linked with the Israeli Mossad. Yoichi said that the Netherlands, the origin of Malaysian flight 17, is the center for the engineering of weaponized viruses under Ron Fouchier, the research associate of the notorious Japanese influenza expert Yoshihiro Kawaoka. The flu research center at Eramus Medical University in Rotterdam is the sister laboratory of Kawaoka's Institute of Infectious Virus Research at the University of Wisconsin, USA. The deadly duo's research include the 'perfection' of a Spanish flu virus that killed 20 million people worldwide in the 1918-19 and the variant of the avian flu virus. They are also developing an antidote available only to the 'chosen few' ( just like another movie, Mission Impossible of Tom Cruise).

Yoichi clarified that the threat of 'World War Z' is not over yet, not when Ukrainians and Russians are being exposed to the unleashed viruses that defy inoculation with vaccines. By the time the clean up is finished, Eastern Ukraine could end up as uninhabited as the Central Congo after WHO teams eliminated all potential carriers of Ebola. This summer, another brazen biowarfare attack was allegedly within razor's edge of exterminating Malaysians and possibly millions of other Asians. War on a global scale is no longer  fought in trenches, but waged in laboratories, airports, city centers, hospitals, senior homes and schools. It is not called TOTAL WAR, it is simply known as GLOBAL POLICY.

The Super Elite: The Good and the Bad Side by Erick San Juan

 The Super Elite: The Good and the Bad Side by Erick San Juan

While sipping a cup of coffee at a cozy restaurant in Greenhills to while away typhoon Glenda, I was given a book by a friend entitled "The Bilderberg Conspiracy" by H. Paul Jeffers. When I returned home, I went to my library to check a book  that I bought in one of my travels which could be similar to my new book. It's the "Superclass: The Global Power Elite and the World They Are Making by David Rothkopf.

Jeffers book narrated the conspiracy of the super elites while Rothkopf talked about power concentrated in the hands of a remarkably small number of people around the globe. "It is about who they are, how they compare to the elites of the past and how they differ from the rest of us. Most of all, it is about the profound impact this super elite group has on our lives and how it is shaping our times."

"The most ancient source of power is the ability to project violent force. Some of the most influential among us commonly mask their power or use of it infrequently. Only a very few people have the sort of international power. Many of those we are accustomed to thinking of as powerful actually have very limited impact in a global sense. They are figures of only local or national importance." Rothkopf added.

I can cite several examples in the local scene. The late President Ferdinand Marcos was perceived as a very powerful leader but he defied the agenda of the 'superclass'. He was exiled and died in vain in Hawaii. The ongoing incarceration of our opposition-politicians which many thought was due to the vindictiveness of the president not knowing that it was also the imposition of the global elite organization to punish the corrupt and defiant politicians. It will reportedly level the playing fields to appease the restiveness of the masses and the middle class. It is not only the corrupt officials from the opposition that will allegedly be jailed but also from the current administration allies. It is just a process of elimination. Step by step, a matter of time. Even PNoy wondered why the Supreme Court despite his appointed justices voted 13-0 regarding the DAP issue. I will elaborate it in my future article. "Big brother is watching you!" That is now the name of the 'game'.

At a recent meeting of the Bilderberg in Davos, Switzerland, I was informed that this group was worried about the ongoing global corruption that must be averted because it threatened the collapse of not only nation-states economy but of the entire global financial structure. To defuse such man-made calamity, the financial institutions like the IMF, World Bank, BIS and affiliates swiftly acted through their  covert regulators like the 'EMERGE', FATF, IIR, etc. and instructed their 'assets' in each government to pinpoint the culprits, file charges and teach them not to mess with the 'system'.

Even the CNN TV report of Richard Quest (July 12,2014), the billionaires attacked the inequality going on worldwide. Quest added that a drag on economic growth could cause revolution.

The super elites are movers and shakers. Rothkopf explained that this 'superclass' has the ability to influence the lives of millions of people worldwide. Heads of state, CEO's of world's largest companies including the military industrial complex, billionaires involved in investments, technology, oil potentates, hedge fund managers, private equity investors, top military commanders, religious leaders, writers and media moguls, scientists, artists, even terrorist leaders and master criminals disguised as big businessmen meet the above criteria for membership.

"But power is transient. Many members of the superclass qualify because of jobs they hold, but people come and go from such jobs. Some retire, some die. Others suffer financial or professional calamities. Some are deposed, others are incarcerated. Disparities are indictment of our civilization and they are threat to it's stability.", Rothkopf concluded. This is the reason why the 'superclass' integrated themselves into several international organizations-civic, business, religious, etc. Conspiracy theorists believe that these super elites are responsible in choosing world leaders like US presidents including Barack Obama despite his color, the rise of Margaret Thatcher and toppling her for trying to keep the UK out of the EU and Tony Blair becoming Prime Minister.
The alleged secret goal of the 'superclass' is to abolish national sovereignty, the creation of a global monetary system and the establishment of a world government.

"The fate of a nation and the world is largely decided by Bilderberg.", said Jonathan Duffy of the BBC(British Broadcasting Corp.) in it's Online Magazine in 2004.

Observers believe that the ongoing regional integration in Asia in 2015 is a modification of the European Union that led to the disintegration of USSR in the early 90's. In 2015, It could also make or break China.

Is the Bilderberg a secret organization with a good intention? Financial Times journalist Martin Wolf commented that there's no secrecy in it but more of privacy. He added that it's not an executive body and no decisions taken in the meeting. In the 50's, Denis Healey, a former British Labour Party official, was one of the four founding members of the Bilderberg. He said that it was formed in the spirit of post World War2 trans-atlantic cooperation and the idea behind Bilderberg was that future wars could be prevented by bringing power brokers together in an informal setting away from the prying eyes.

This is the reported reason why the 'Group' after their meetings, it issued no policy statement and held no press conference.

You be the judge!!!

He Who Controls Technology Rules by Erick San Juan

I was amazed to read at the Wall Street Journal (7/9/14) an article entitled "From Hidden Station, China Spies on the World" by James T. Areddy, Paul Mozur and Danny Yadron. It pictured how sophisticated the Chinese espionage and their high-tech weaponry capability that can compete with the western technology.

The report vividly described the China's version of the US National Security Agency monitoring Russia and track missiles from the mountains near Beijing. China's military experts allegedly analyze internet phone calls on an island dubbed as China's Hawaii and eavesdropped on Europe from a secret town hidden behind an array of residential towers.

The Wall Street Journal assembled an overview of some secret operations of China's global  monitoring organization using Chinese government websites, academic databases and foreign security expertise.

The 3rd Department of the Peoples Liberation Army's General Staff Department which spy watchers call 3PLA is reportedly central to China's military strategy, tasked with monitoring and analyzing much of the world's communication, including embassy cables, corporate emails and criminal networks for foreign threats and competitive advantages. China's national security operation is perceived to maintain what active and former US officials say are facilities around Shanghai specialized in watching the US. One of them is located close to the main transoceanic communication cables linking China to the US.

Last May,  the US Justice Department indicted five officers of 3PLA on charges that they stole US corporate secrets. The report added that as Beijing modernized its high-tech defensive arsenal, the Wall Street Journal backed up 'on the ground' views of 3PLA facilities with an examination of the organizational structure of the NSA like military departments. Pundits believe, it rattled governments and corporations around the globe while remaining obscure outside security circles. It's operational units are spread out widely throughout China.

According to foreign experts, recruits came from elite specialist universities. 3PLA's estimated 100,000 plus hackers, linguists, analysts and officers populate a dozen military intelligence units. It's multiple sub-operations divvy up responsibility according to  geography and task as reported.

At some 3PLA units in Beijing and Shanghai, arrays of satellite dishes seemed to dwarf the walls surrounding them where visitors face stiff-faced guards and written warnings. Some farm fields sprout dozens of thin radio towers next to a base in Northern Shanghai.

According to the Wall Street Journal report, two former US officials familiar with intelligence assessments said 3PLA's  operational structure has parallels with those of the US National Security Agency and the Pentagon's Cyber Command, both run out of Fort Meade in Maryland, USA.

There are so many secrets and detailed information at the WSJ report. Who will taught that this top level information can be exposed like the WikiLeaks, Snowden report, spy novel like Ludlum, Le Carre and has a semblance of the James Bond spy thriller.

It entered my mind like a 'deja vu' when I attended a security conference abroad recently.  One of the lecturers told us that the old adage-" He who controls the gold rules." is already passe and the future war will be won by superior technology. Humint or human intelligence through clandestine and spy networks will soon be replaced by super computers and hi-tech gadgets. Soldiers as warriors due to its vulnerability will be retooled by intelligent robots. Planes, drones, tanks and other weaponry will be unmanned and controlled by computers and satellites.

Its very clear now that the hype of sophistication is part of psy ops and myth to make the perceive future enemies believe that they now have the capability to fight and defeat the western technology and strategy.

I have to remind some nation-states not to 'bite the bullet' and stop their provocation of war just to cover their leaders deficiencies and impending domestic strifes. In disguise of uniting their nationals, they are trying to be bully for a 'cause' and possibly fight another enemy.

Such leaders should learn from the mistakes  of the past and history of wars. The west have created thousands of think-tank like Project 2049 Institute, a Virginia based organization whom the WSJ was provided with unpublished analysis on 3PLA. What about the several security conferences analyzing and assessing possible and future conflicts inviting members of the academe, top intelligence and defense officials and security analysts worldwide.

The real problem lies with the pawns. The Philippines could possibly be the 'guinea pig' if our leaders will not be careful. Be wary!
