The highly divisive drama in the US, concerning the ‘Migrant Caravan’ from Central America, is clearly being manipulated and stage-managed by the media and by rival propaganda campaigns that are using vulnerable human beings as tools for mass manipulation and division.

In fact, this isn’t new: this seems to be a re-run of the 2015-onwards Migrant Crisis that destabilised Europe, albeit the American version.

The weaponisation – on both sides of the ‘argument’ – of the migrants and their situation is a contrived, scripted affair, mostly divorced from the reality of the problem and the key points in recent history that are relevant here (namely, what happened in Honduras several years ago – which NO ONE on either side of the idealogical divide seems to be talking about).

I’ll offer a recap on the Honduras situation in a moment – because it’s the elephant in the room that seems to be being glossed over.

But there’s a couple of things to bear in mind.

First, the whole way this is being made to appear and to unfold seems designed for maximum dramatic imagery and to provoke maximum xenophobia. It’s one thing for the rabid ‘Build the Wall’ crowd to see news items about scattered incidents of individual illegal migrants or small groups of asylum seekers – but when the situation is presented as an organised mass of people on their way to the border, it is clearly primed to provoke maximum paranoia and resistance.

This is ‘Part II’ of the article that was originally talking about the situation in Sweden: now I want to focus on Germany. Though, broadly speaking, this is all one subject.

There are groups, ideologies, platforms and parties right now that are working to push all of civilisation into a ‘race war’ or ‘civil war’ scenario – a sectarian-based societal breakdown in Europe and the West to mirror the one that has already been inflicted on the Middle East.

I have been writing about this equation – in its various manifestations and contexts – for some time here.

We are currently in a situation where the danger of a ‘Far Right Europe’, “a return to the 1930s” or even a fascist world order, could soon become palpable – if certain psy-op programmes play out successfully.  Which depends on how stupid or smart, how informed or misinformed, the general public is in various countries.

In the previous article, we examined the deteriorating situation being reported in Sweden, ahead of that country’s election this weekend: centering on the dramatic acts of violence and vandalism that have rocked the country and the fact that Sweden’s Far-Right “Nazi” party (the Sweden Democrats) is the main beneficiary of those incidents and is predicted to emerge this weekend as potentially the biggest political party in Sweden.

That would represent a seismic shift in Swedish politics and society. Germany too could be on the verge of – or in the midst of – a seismic shift.

Germany, like Sweden, is in the same struggle now occuring for the political souls of various countries. A battle that, as in Sweden, is being manipulated from the outside: though most people don’t seem to realise it.

Which brings us to the dramatic, disturbing scenes in Chemnitz, in the east German state of Saxony, where the Far Right rallies have been getting lots of international attention.

I want to demonstrate here why the ‘trigger-event’ in Chemnitz was probably a false-flag, and then I want to talk about the outside manipulation and the information/misinformation war, as well as focus on the major beneficiary of these events, the ‘AFD’: there’s a lot of very, very interesting information.

But first let’s just recap on what has actually been going on this passed week or so. (more…)

I’ve been talking here for some time about a manufactured ‘race war’ or ‘civil wars’ psy-op, utilising age-old divide-and-conquer strategies and propaganda and being run at various levels of media and society.

It has been unfolding in pretty much every country: and in the last three years, it has been pushed into overdrive.

I laid out here what it’s about and what it’s for. I laid out here, here and here, the kind of figureheads or front-man propagandists who are pushing it to the masses. And I laid out here why a substantial part of it is linked to ethno-nationalists in a certain country, where even a former Prime Minister was warning about the growing “seeds of fascism”.

In each instance, I demonstrated why I say an orchestrated societal breakdown is being played out (aimed at a radical reconfiguration of Western society) – with large masses of people being caught up in the hype: many of them willingly, many of them unknowingly.

The predictions or fears of ‘race wars’ or mass societal breakdown have been appearing for some time. And most of the commentary on this in the last few years has been firmly the domain of the psy-op facillitators who are playing their part to help bring that state of affairs into reality.

There are groups, ideologies and parties right now that want to push all of civilisation into a civil war scenario – a sectarian-based societal breakdown in Europe and the West to mirror the one that has already been inflicted on the Middle East.

In that context, I want to focus now on two particular recent stories: the big protests and unrest in Germany and the mass car burnings in Sweden. (more…)

So Inauguration Day in Washington came across as a decidedly odd, even slightly unsettling, affair: which is perhaps the only fitting end-point for what has been a decidedly odd, even slightly unsettling, presidential race.
It also seemed to affirm my fears that we’re falling deeper into a bad place.

What was most striking about the scenes is how low-key, even grim, the mood and atmosphere was, feeling slightly more like a Soviet-style event than an American presidential inauguration. Something similar was noted by Russian chess legend Garry Kasparov recently in regard to Trump’s first press event. (more…)
