The corporate media reported on Wednesday that the CIA is building a secret air base in the Middle East to use for armed drone attacks on al-Qaeda in Yemen, a full-tilt expansion of the manufactured war from the Middle East into the Arab Maghreb of Africa. This follows news reports that al-Qaeda has moved into a provincial capital in Yemen’s southeast and has warned government officials to leave or face retaliation, according to the New York Times.
The move by al-Qaeda in Yemen and news of the CIA plan to escalate the drone war into Africa follows by several days word that the elite plan to expand the fabricated war on terror. Last week in St. Moritz, Switzerland, inside sources at the Bilderberg meeting revealed that the globalists are working to spread the war throughout the region.
The elite want a “big bloody war in the Middle East, which will involve every country except Israel, which is being protected,” veteran Bilderberg hunter Jim Tucker told Alex Jones on June 9. A large war, he noted, will work toward the effort by the elite to drive up oil prices and put further economic pressure on a dwindling middle class in America.
In another development pointing toward expanded war, on Thursday the Pentagon moved warships on the Mediterrenean coast of Syria.
Oil prices are currently falling. Brent crude and U.S. oil prices dropped sharply from a five-week high on Wednesday but are projected to go up significantly in the long term. Instability in the Middle East will ultimately drive prices much higher. Chief Financial Officer of Rio de Janeiro-based Petrobras Brasileiro, Almir Barbassa, reflected industry predictions when he said in March that the conflict in Libya and the so-called “Arab Spring” will push prices higher.
According to Bilderberg insiders, escalating gas and oil prices will ultimately move the American people into a position of supporting wars in the Middle East where much of the world’s oil is produced.
Despite this prediction, on Wednesday a bipartisan group of House members announced they are filing a lawsuit against Obama for his illegal and unconstitutional end-run around Congress when he approved U.S military action against Libya. “With regard to the war in Libya, we believe that the law was violated. We have asked the courts to move to protect the American people from the results of these illegal policies,” said Rep. Dennis Kucinich, an Ohio Democrat.
House Speaker John A. Boehner warned President Obama on Tuesday that unless he gets authorization from Congress for his military deployment in Libya, he will be in violation of the War Powers Resolution.
Bilderberg insiders revealed last week that the global elite are concerned about mounting congressional opposition to endless wars and they fear steps may be taken to roll back military action in the region. The CIA plan to expand the war into Yemen and ultimately into Somalia and Africa reveal a brazen attempt to buck the growing trend against unconstitutional military acts by Congress. The elite are determined to act before they are hamstrung by lawmakers and the American people.

Ignoring the mounting chorus of opposition, the Pentagon and the Obama administration are stepping up military activity against Yemen-based al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, “considered the most immediate terror threat to America,” according to the Associated Press. “There have been consistent reports of connections between AQAP in Yemen and al-Shabab across the Gulf of Aden in Somalia. And those could deepen if the Yemeni government loses more control of its coastal regions,” the AP reported on Wednesday.
In addition to the expansion of the war on terror – and the debilitating effect it continues to have on the U.S. and global economy – Tucker’s mole revealed last week that the elite are worried about the alternative media and its growing impact on the corporate media’s script-read pro-war propaganda.
The global elite realize they must muzzle the alternative media and force the American people back into the corporate media propaganda circuit if they are going to dampen resistance to their plan to gain order of chaos through war and also take down the economy and move to impose a globalist economic scheme with a global currency and high-tech authoritarian police state.
The current corporate media obsession with hacking is part of a propaganda effort to convince Americans that an unregulated or internet not controlled and supervised by government is a threat to modern civilization with its power grids and infrastructure networks. The shadowy and mysterious groups LulzSec and Anonymous are at the forefront of this effort to frighten the American people, most who do not understand that such “hacker collectives” do not really pose a serious threat to corporate and government networks, at least not those with adequate security measures in place.
The emerging trend is to restrict internet access under the aegis of copyright law. Last month the new EU Intellectual Property Rights Strategy endorsed a policy of holding ISPs liable for piracy, thus forcing them to punish users without the involvement of a judge or jury. Spain, Ireland and the UK have recently decided to tackle piracy with access restrictions.
In the United States, the “Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act” would empower the Department of Justice to shut down, or block access to, websites found to be “dedicated to infringing activities.” The DOJ has already done this numerous times. In late May, the DOJ moved from shuttering copyright infringing piracy sites to shutting down gambling sites. This precedent leaves the door open for the government to close down other sites not associated with criminal or perceived criminal activity.
In February, the government closed down several websites for linking to copyrighted material, thus establishing a dangerous precedent. The company, Rojadirecta, filed a complaint in U.S. District Court in New York, claiming that the government was violating the First Amendment, citing a number of previous cases where material was seized without justification.
The PROTECT IP Act introduced in Congress will codify domain seizures, ISP blockades, search engine censorship, and other heavy-handed government acts under the excuse of preventing copyright infringement. How long before the government claims linking to news articles and other information is behavior “dedicated to infringing activities”and begins the process of shuttering alternative media websites? The ambiguity of the bill may frighten off ISPs and hosting services from providing services to any business that may be determined by a government bureaucrat to break copyright law.
The bill would also deny search engine access and online credit card and payment services to websites the government claims are “rogue” and criminal.
PROTECT IP is currently aimed at foreign websites, but the emerging trend is one that will eventually adversely impact all internet activity.
A raft of cybersecurity legislation is designed to treat offending websites as terrorist enterprises. In late May, the Pentagon announced that computer intrusions from abroad are from now on to be considered acts of war against the United States and will be answered with conventional military force.
The Pentagon established a new command last year, headed by Gen. Keith B. Alexander, director of the NSA, to consolidate military network security and attack efforts. Alexander told the Washington Post last November that the new outfit wants maneuvering room to mount what he called “the full spectrum” of operations in cyberspace.
Not incidentally, activist websites such as Anonymous are considered at the forefront of the cyber terrorist threat against the United States. The mysterious hackers at LulzSec have claimed responsibly for attacking various sites, including the U.S. Senate, game maker Bethesda Software (producer of such titles as Brink, Doom, and Quake), Sony BMG, security firm Unveillance, Nintendo, and the Atlanta chapter of FBI affiliate InfraGard.
“LulzSec, or people just like them, are the future of Net hacking. And it’s going to get really nasty out there before it gets any better — if it gets better,” claims InfoWorld.
Nobody really knows who LulzSec is. It is, however, rather suspicious that the group has increased its hacking activities during a period when a number of cybersecurity bills are marching through Congress.
Last week Attorney General Eric Holder said cybersecurity is one the top priorities for the Justice Department. “I’m proud to report that this work is — and it will remain — a top priority not only for me personally, but for our nation’s Department of Justice, and for this administration at the Cabinet level,” said the nation’s top cop.
Slowly but surely, the government, at the behest of the ruling elite who met last week in Switzerland, are tightening the noose around the internet and will soon make the medium untenable for alternative media.
High on their list is the ability to wage destructive and endless war for profit and to gain order out of chaos – currently among recalcitrant Muslims in the Middle East – and further the economic deterioration now well underway, all of it without the pesky interference of alternative media that will ultimately be characterized as LulzSec terrorists and moved to the Pentagon’s ever growing target list.
