In the US’s “Phony Wars,” the Military-Industrial Complex Is the Only Winner

Altnews editor’s comment: While the article correctly identifies the #MilitaryIndustrialComplex as the primary beneficiary of the spoils of the US’s #PhonyWars and provides much verifiable background information in support of the hypothesis, the astute observer cannot escape the conclusion that, when you follow the money, most of the corporations that make up that Military Industrial Complex are in fact owned by the same small group of investors who also deploy their other investment vehicles, like #BigMedia, #BigPharma, #BigAg, #BigChem, #BigEnergy and #BigFood, to steal every last penny from people everywhere and deprive them of their hard earned wealth while keeping them suitably hypnotised,  brainwashed, drugged up and suffering from ill health, with, as the planned endgame, to gain absolute power over every human being, nation and state in this world under the guise of the #NewWorldOrder.

Overseas, the United States is engaged in real wars in which bombs are dropped, missiles are launched, and people (generally not Americans) are killed, wounded, uprooted, and displaced. Yet here at home, there’s nothing real about those wars.  Here, it’s phony war all the way. In the last 17 years of “forever war,” this nation hasn’t for one second been mobilized. Taxes are being cut instead of raised.  Wartime rationing is a faint memory from the World War II era.  No one is being required to sacrifice a thing.

Now, ask yourself a simple question: What sort of war requires no sacrifice?  What sort of war requires that almost no one in the country waging it take the slightest notice of it? Continue reading “In the US’s “Phony Wars,” the Military-Industrial Complex Is the Only Winner”

Five thousand inventions in limbo and under “secrecy orders” at the US Patent Office

Editor’s comment: The US Patents Office is the place where #BigPharma, #BigEnergy, #BigAg, #BigFood and the #MillitaryIndustrialComplex wield their power to protect their profitability and interests and ensure society develops adhering to their planned vision of the future of society.

No wonder some scientists and inventors release their inventions and findings directly into the #PublicDomain just to keep their work out of the grasp of the #PatentsOffice and its powerful influencers. That those same scientists and inventors thereby knowingly forego an often well deserved financial reward for their work illustrates what true heros these people are.

How many of these patents, if granted, would be game changers for planet Earth? Who knows?

Buckle up. Here we go.

From FAS (Federation of American Scientists), Secrecy News, Oct. 21, 2010, “Invention Secrecy Still Going Strong,” by Steven Aftergood:

“There were 5,135 inventions that were under secrecy orders at the end of Fiscal Year 2010, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office told Secrecy News last week. It’s a 1% rise over the year before, and the highest total in more than a decade.”

“Under the Invention Secrecy Act of 1951, patent applications on new inventions can be subject to secrecy orders restricting their publication if government agencies believe that disclosure would be ‘detrimental to the national security’.” Continue reading “Five thousand inventions in limbo and under “secrecy orders” at the US Patent Office”
