There are more than 60,000 transnational corporations in the world.
More than fifty of the largest one-hundred economies in the world are corporations. 
Transnational corporations hold ninety percent of all technology and product patents worldwide.
Transnational corporations are involved in 70 percent of world trade.


(based on a 2011 Swiss study of 43,000 multinational companies)

The top 737 of these super-corporations or "super-entities" control 80% of the world economy.
The top 147 super-corporations or "super-entities" control 40% of the global economy through direct and indirect ownership or controlling interest.

Hundreds of companies that own the stocks and bonds of each other - they collectively own themselves. Hence, it becomes nearly impossible to trace the roots of ownership and control. From their relative obscurity, they wield enormous control of national and global economies.
These companies have also emerged larger and more powerful after the 2008 economic meltdown.

"In the absence of a coherent alternative, the transnational corporations carry on inexorably. Increasingly flagless and stateless, they weave global webs of production, commerce, culture and finance virtually unopposed. They expand, invest and grow, concentrating ever more wealth in a limited number of hands. They work in coalition to influence local, national and international institutions and laws. And together with the governments of their home countries in Europe, North America and Japan, as well as international institutions such as the World Trade Organization, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and increasingly, the United Nations, they are molding an international system in which they can trade and invest even more freely - a world where they are less and less accountable to the cultures, communities and nation-states in which they operate. Underpinning this effort is not the historical inevitability of an evolving, enlightened civilization, but rather the unavoidable reality of the overriding corporate purpose: the maximization of profits."

"There seems to be nothing to prevent the transnational corporations taking possession of the planet and subjecting humanity to the dictatorship of capital."

Christian la Brie, Le Monde Diplomatique (Paris)


"The quantum leap in the ability of transnational corporations to relocate their facilities around the world in effect makes all workers, communities and countries competitors for these corporations' favor. The consequence is a "race to the bottom" in which wages and social conditions tend to fall to the level of the most desperate."

Jeremy Brecher


"Structural adjustments work wonderfully for the transnational corporations by depressing wages, intensifying the level of exploitation, and boosting profit rates. They also leave the economies and peoples of these various countries measurably worse off."

Michael Parenti


"In the last quarter of the 20th century, the transnational corporations became the principal designers and controllers of the economy.
...Transnational corporations and their offshoots now conduct two-thirds of the world's trade, and they decide worldwide where, what, how and for whom their products shall be produced. Many are richer - and more powerful - than nation states."

"The real motives behind most of U.S foreign policy as measured by the kinds of countries U.S. Ieaders support and the kinds of countries or political movements they try to destroy is to keep the world safe for the Fortune 500. To make sure that the transnational corporations and international global finance capital continues to control the land, labor, resources, and markets of most of the world, and ultimately, all of the world on terms that are extremely favorable to them. The goal is to destroy, to obliterate, to thwart any social movement or national leader who is trying for an alternative way of using the land, the labor, the natural resources, the markets, the capital of his or her country."

"U.S. foreign policy is largely directed towards serving the transnational corporations."

"Trilateralists are members of a private, though not secret, international organization put together by the wealthy banker, David Rockefeller, to stimulate the Establishment dialogue between Western Europe, Japan and the United States. But here is the unsettling thing about the Trilateral Commission. The President-elect [Carter] is a member. So is the Vice President-elect Walter F. Mondale. So are the new Secretaries of State, Defense and Treasury: Cyrus R. Vance, Harold Brown and W. Michael Blumenthal. So is Zibigniew Brzezinski, who is a former Trilateral director and Carter's national security adviser, also a bunch of others who will make foreign policy for America in the next four years."

"The Trilateral Commission is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States. The Trilateral Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power political, monetary, intellectual and ecclesiastical. What the Trilateral Commission intends is to create a worldwide economic power superior to the political governments of the nationstates involved. As managers and creators of the system, they will rule the future."

"The five veto powers and permanent members of the Security Council ­ the so called victors of the Second World War. The old boys club of 1945. The five States that have corrupted the UN Charter. And corrupted the work of the UN. Applying double-standards, and disregard for law - they have made the organisation primarily serve their best interests rather than serve its mandate.
I refer to the five most dangerous Member States that together manufacture and sell some 85% of military arms, including nuclear weapons, and so called weapons of mass destruction. This is the UN of the arms dealers - the most disreputable and yet profitable business on earth.
And tragically and quite bizarrely ­ these arms dealers are the same Member States that the UN Charter entrusts with maintaining Peace and Security around the world! I trust you see the disconnect? The incompatibility? - the mind boggling reality of nuclear powers and weapons salesmen being responsible for peaceful co-existence?! It's madness!"

Denis Halliday, Global Research Public Lecture, Montreal, Canada, December 1, 2009


"The next step is the Great Merger of all nations of the world into a dictatorial world government. This was the main reason behind the push to bring Red China into the United Nations. If you want to control the natural resources, transportation, commerce and banking for the whole world, you must put everybody under the same roof."

Gary Allen in his book "None Dare Call It Conspiracy"


"The United Natons (UN) is but a long-range, international banking apparatus clearly set up for financial and economic profit by a small group of powerful One-World revolutionaries, hungry for profit and power."

Curtis Dall, FDR's son-in-law, as quoted in his book "My Exploited Father-in-Law"


"The United Nations is a dictatorship from which nothing good comes, because they find a million ways to prevent anything from happening.
... Within the Security Council, there are five countries that have veto power. But without a doubt, the most influential country in the United Nations is the United States. And it's really amazing the most warmongering country in the history of mankind is put there in charge to make sure that there is peace.
... The United Nations Charter tells you how you can proceed to reform it. They say you have to call a general conference and how you have to call it and the approval that you have to have from the Security Council. But at the end, when all is said and done, when you have decided what reforms you want to make, they have a veto power over it. So it's a farce. It's a fraud.
... The United Nations is beyond reform. It's beyond patchwork. It's the most important organization in the world to help save the human species and Mother Earth, but it has to be reinvented."

former UN General Assembly President Miguel d'Escoto


"That the policy of genocide in Iraq was initiated and legitimized through the United Nations is an instructive indication of the extent to which the UN has become a tool of Western, and particularly Anglo-American power."

"Yearly the World Economic Forum (WEF)/Davos brings together the world's most powerful CEO's along with governmental policy decision-makers.
... The World Economic Forum is a facilitator for the goals and objectives of the United Nations - which is world government.
The Reform of the UN recommends a world military state in which the UN has a rapid deployment force, the Security Council is enlarged with power to enforce sanctions, member states provide additional troops for disbursement to the UN at any time, the UN is given a legal mechanism to enforce the International Criminal Court Statutes, a global police force is set up for peacekeeping and a peacebuilding commission is established to help countries avoid the state of collapse and sliding into war by transitioning them from war to peace.
The Reform of the UN is built around a new radical concept of "collective Security." Collective security rests on three basic pillars: (1) Today's threats recognize no national boundaries, (2) are connected and must be addressed at the global and regional levels as well as the national levels and (2) no state, no matter how powerful, can by its own efforts alone make itself invulnerable to today's threats. Any event or process that leads to large-scale death or lessening of life changes and undermines States as the basic unit of the international system is a threat to international security.
International security is based on: (1) economic and social threats such as poverty, infectious diseases and environmental degradation, (2) inter-state conflict, (3) Internal conflict such as civil war and genocide, (4) nuclear, radiological, chemical and biological weapons, (5) terrorism and (6) transnational Crime. In other words, the world will intervene for humanitarian purposes as well as for natural disasters.
There is a merger between government and business. Partnership is a key building component in this new world that we find ourselves in. The United Nations formed the Global Compact in Davos in 1999 which basically asks the corporations of the world to partner with the UN in building schools, roads, sewers and clean water for the peoples in developing countries. This concept is a far cry from the "old fashioned" form of government that we knew. When you add collective security to global taxation, you find that we really are in a "New World Order"."

Joan Veon, 2005


"The UN Security Council is now regarded as a captive [by most of the UN membership], where the North secures decisions by economic intimidation, abuses the peaceful-redress procedures inscribed in the charter and authorizes a kind of vigilantism against countries of the North's own choosing."

"The UN's Agenda 21 proposes a global regime that will monitor, oversee, and strictly regulate our planet's oceans, lakes, streams, rivers, aquifers, sea beds, coastlands, wetlands, forests, jungles, grasslands, farmland, deserts, tundra, and mountains. It even has a whole section on regulating and "protecting" the atmosphere. It proposes plans for cities, towns, suburbs, villages, and rural areas. It envisions a global scheme for healthcare, education, nutrition, agriculture, labor, production, and consumption - in short, everything; there is nothing on, in, over, or under the Earth that doesn't fall within the purview of some part of Agenda 21."

Edited by David Ray Griffin and Peter Dale Scott


"By and large, in the schools and universities people believe they're telling the truth. The way that works, with rare exceptions, is that you cannot make it through these institutions unless you've accepted the indoctrination. You're kind of weeded out along the way. Independent thinking is encouraged in the sciences but discouraged in these areas, and if people do it they're weeded out as radical or there's something wrong with them."

Noam Chomsky in the book "Stenographers to Power by David Barsamian"


"In the United States now you can't work in biology if you don't accept funding from biotechnology firms. There was a time when science and the university loudly proclaimed their independence from governmental, military, and industrial institutions. That's over, not only because scientists depend on industry to survive, but because they themselves are part of industry... we're living in a totalitarian world, ruled by the interests of multinational corporations who recognize their responsibility only to their shareholders."

Ignacio Chapela one of the authors of the "Nature Study"


"The representatives of corporate America sit on the Boards of Regents, and Boards of Trustees that rule our universities and colleges. Corporate America owns the major media.

"With less research money available from public sources, more and more scientists in the U.S. and Europe are dependent on corporate sponsors, and hence, corporate acceptance of their research and results. Among Britain's top research universities, for example, dependence on private funds often amounts to 80 to 90 percent of the total research budget."

Jeffrey M. Smith in his book "Seeds of Deception". 2003

"Why don't elite economists ever want to reduce payroll, gasoline and sales taxes? Why do they always want to cut income and corporate taxes? Why do some Ivy League experts always want to slash tax rates on capital gains and dividends? Why is their theory silent about the beneficial effects of cuts for low-income people? The reason is simple: these other rate cuts won't offer much benefit to the rich, so well-paid economists working for the affluent see no investment and growth benefits from such reductions. If the experts urged consideration of tax cuts for the middle and lower classes, their colleges would likely starve for donations from the CEOs."

"We have a highly profitable, lucrative religion that involves the government, industry, and academia. That religion is vaccination. People believe in vaccines. But, you ask them what they know about vaccines and it will be almost nothing."

Dr. Suzanne Humphries in her book "Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and the Forgotten History"


"Autism rates in the US have been rising since the 1980s. In 1985 autism prevalence was 1 in 2,500, ten years later it jumped to 1 in 500, and today it is an astonishing 1 in 68 children.
More and more researchers and doctors are raising red flags as they see more evidence that this epidemic is related not only to environmental, food, and water toxins, but specifically to those in vaccinations. In 1995, the immunization schedule for children had 19 vaccinations before the age of 16. In 2001, that number is now 28 before the age of 18.
Following the 2016 schedule, a child can receive up to 72 vaccinations if they have all the doses of the vaccines, all the boosters, and a double-dose of the annual flu shot done."

Yelena Sukhoterina, 2016


"What we need, but do not yet have, are studies of vaccinated vs unvaccinated children."

Barbara Loe Fisher, founder of the National Vaccine Information Center


"With a child now receiving 31 and more vaccinations during its first 18 months of life, it would seem that this barbaric practice would have been fully investigated by our health officials to account for the epidemic rise in neurological and behavioral disorders, adult diabetes and asthmatic conditions in American children. Instead, our health officials continue to pump out junk science."

Richard Gale and Dr Gary Null, 2009


"There is a huge gap in our understanding of vaccine safety, and yet we have an industry that is indemnified, that doesn't carry any risk or any liability for vaccine damage. So why would you do the safety studies? This is what they've done. They've taken shortcuts; they've not done the safety studies that are necessary. I believe children are now paying a considerable price for that."

Dr. Andrew Wakefield


"Without the slightest nuance, the mainstream media constantly portrays people reluctant to accept just any vaccine as "anti-vaxers", irresponsible and misinformed people In reality, many so-called "anti-vaxers" are not all totally against vaccines. While some people may be totally against any kind of vaccination, many, including doctors and health specialists, question certain vaccines, ingredients in the vaccines and/or the vaccination schedule."

Julie Lévesque


"To date, studies conducted or funded by the CDC that purportedly dispute any correlation between autism and vaccine injury have been of poor design, under-powered, and fatally flawed. The CDC's rush to support and promote such research is reflective of a philosophical conflict in looking fairly at emerging theories and clinical data related to adverse reactions from vaccinations."

Subcommittee on Human Rights and Wellness of the U.S. House of Representatives' Committee on Government Reform, 2003


"The pharmaceutical companies are busy designing a vaccine for the swine flu in hope that the U.S. government will make the vaccine mandatory before another vaccine-related disaster can ruin their party. Like SARS and bird flu before it, this swine flu scare is a lot of nonsense."

"Many reports that describe post-vaccination autoimmunity strongly suggest that vaccines can indeed trigger autoimmunity. Defined autoimmune diseases that may occur following vaccinations include arthritis, lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus, SLE) diabetes mellitus, thrombocytopenia, vasculitis, dermatomyosiositis, Guillain-Barre syndrome and demyelinating disorders. Almost all types of vaccines have been reported to be associated with the onset of Autoimmune/inflammatory Syndrome [ASIA]."

"The United States has the highest number of mandated vaccines for children under 5 in the world (36, double the Western world average of 18), the highest autism rate in the world (1 in 150 children, 10 times or more the rate of some other Western countries), but only places 34th in the world for its children under 5 mortality rate."
[a study conducted by Think Twice Global Vaccine Institute, published in the journal Human & Experimental Toxicology]


"The U.S. gives more vaccines than any other country in the world. Our childhood schedule for under the age of one has twice as many vaccines as other developed countries. What else do we have? The highest infant mortality rate of any developed nation. Finland has the lowest. They only give 11 by age six. Mississippi has the highest rate of vaccination in the U.S. and the highest infant mortality rate."

Timothy Alexander Guzman, 2016


"Thimserosal used as a preservative in vaccines is likely related to the autism epidemic. This epidemic in all probability may have been prevented or curtailed had the FDA not been asleep at the switch regarding the lack of safety data regarding injected thimerosal and the sharp rise of infant exposure to his known neurotoxin. Our public health agencies' failure to act is indicative of institutional malfeasance for self-protection and misplaced protectionism of the pharmaceutical industry."

Richard Gale and Dr Gary Null, 2009


"The Gates Foundation has been linked to mass vaccination initiatives using untested, unsafe vaccinations.
... In December 2012, in the small village of Gouro, Chad, Africa, situated on the edge of the Sahara Desert, five hundred children were locked into their school, threatened that if they did not agree to being force-vaccinated with a meningitis A vaccine, they would receive no further education.
These children were vaccinated without their parents' knowledge. This vaccine was an unlicensed product still going through the third and fourth phases of testing.
Within hours, one hundred and six children began to suffer from headaches, vomiting, severe uncontrollable convulsions and paralysis. The children had to wait one full week for a doctor to arrive while the team of vaccinators proceeded to vaccinate others in the village.
When the doctor finally came, he could do nothing for the children. The team of vaccinators, upon seeing what had happened, fled the village in fear.
After being shuttled around like cattle, many of these sick, weak children were finally dumped back in their village without a diagnosis and each family was given an unconfirmed sum of 1000 British pounds by the government. No forms were signed and no documentation was seen. They were informed that their children had not suffered a vaccine injury.
However, if this were true, why would their government award each family 1000 British pounds, in what has been described as hush money?
The groups involved with this project were PATH, WHO, UNICEF, and the Gates Foundation. During investigations, it was discovered that the whole project was being run by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.", 2014


"CDC and FDA researchers identify 749 deaths linked to the administration of the Hib vaccine, 51% of which were sudden infant death linked to the administration of Hib vaccine."

Julie Lévesque, 2016


"During normal childhood development, non-specific immunity is gradually formed over time, beginning in the womb with the transfer of maternal antibodies from a child's mother and continuing on into early toddlerhood. This natural process of immune formation establishes lifelong immunity to various diseases as they are encountered.
... Vaccines, however, interfere with this process by overriding non-specific immune formation and bombarding specific immunity with antigens, adjuvants and chemicals. At best, these injections provide temporary immunity, only aided by "booster" shots at regular intervals to maintain it. At worst, this overriding creates lasting immune damage, potentially triggering autoimmune diseases.
... The immune system is incredibly complex, having been designed in such a way as to provide multiple layers of protection against outside invaders. But vaccines interfere with these layers - and since they are far from perfect, being man-made with no possibility of ever being perfected, they threaten to damage real immunity, in some cases permanently.
This is especially true regarding vaccine adjuvants, which are claimed to stimulate an immune response. It is near impossible to balance these adjuvants, along with vaccine preservatives, substrate proteins and other additives, to attain the proper immune response, which puts many people at risk."

"Doctors in India tracking problems inside the nation's health system found a huge spike in young children who were crippled after receiving the oral polio vaccine.
There were 47,500 cases of non-polio paralysis reported in 2011, the same year India was declared "polio-free," according to Dr. Vashisht and Dr. Puliyel. Further, the available data shows that the incidents tracked back to areas were doses of the polio vaccine were frequently administered. Related studies in India have already demonstrated that polio vaccines are the leading cause of polio paralysis.
... With only a handful of cases of polio worldwide, the vaccine has become literally more dangerous than the disease."

Aaron Dykes, 2013


"Vaccinated Americans are incurring weakened immunity from the toxins in today's vaccines and are more susceptible to catching live viruses from the shedders, "the herd" with which they surround themselves, at schools and at work. "Herd immunity" is a hoax and always has been."

S. D. Wells, 2015


"The tests of the triple vaccines such as MMR are inadequate. There have never been any safety studies of giving two doses, and yet that is now almost universal practice in the developed world, but that's never been subjected to a safety study. And some children are now receiving nine, ten vaccines on the same day. That has never been subjected to any kind of scrutiny by the FDA or anyone else."

Dr. Andrew Wakefield


"In the early 1950s, there were four vaccines: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis and smallpox. Because three of these vaccines were combined into a single shot (DTP), children received five shots by the time they were 2 years old and not more than one shot at a single visit.
By the mid-1980s, there were seven vaccines: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, measles, mumps, rubella and polio. Because six of these vaccines were combined into two shots (DTP and MMR), and one, the polio vaccine, was given by mouth, children still received five shots by the time they were 2 years old and not more than one shot at a single visit.
Since the mid-1980s, many vaccines have been added to the schedule. Now, children could receive as many as 24 shots by 2 years of age and five shots in a single visit."

Melissa Melton, 2014


"Vaccines can have tumorigenic kidney cells of a cocker spaniel in them. They can have human fetal cells with retroviruses. They can have aluminum, which is one of the most horrible things to inject into any sort of life form, especially into a muscle... Parents really need to know that their doctors are not informed and therefore they cannot give informed consent, and that they really need to think about it because you cannot unvaccinate."

Dr. Suzanne Humphries in her book "Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and the Forgotten History"


"Aluminum has been added to vaccines since about 1926 when Alexander Glenny and colleagues noticed it would produce better antibody responses in vaccines than the antigen alone. Glenny figured the alum was inducing what he called a "depot effect" - slowing the release of the antigen and heightening the immune response. For 60 years his theory was accepted dogma. And over the same time, the vaccine schedule grew decade on decade, but few ever questioned the effects of injecting aluminum into the body, which is strange considering its known toxicity.
A PubMed search on aluminum and "toxicity" turns up 4,258 entries. Its neurotoxicity is well documented. It affects memory, cognition, psychomotor control; it damages the blood brain barrier, activates brain inflammation, depresses mitochondrial function and plenty of research suggests it is a key player in the formation of the amyloid "plaques" and tangles in the brains of Alzheimer's patients. It's been implicated in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and autism and demonstrated to induce allergy."

Celeste McGovern, 2016


"A growing number of scientists and researchers believe that a relationship between the increase in neurodevelopmental disorders of autism and the increased use of thimerosal in vaccines is plausible and deserves more scrutiny.
... At the same time that the incidence of autism was growing, the number of childhood vaccines containing thimerosal was growing, increasing the amount of ethylmercury to which infants were exposed threefold."

Richard Gale and Dr Gary Null, 2009


"Vaccines were not what made disease go away; what made disease go away was isolation and sanitation."

Dr. Suzanne Humphries in her book "Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and the Forgotten History"


"The US childhood immunization schedule requires 26 vaccine doses for infants aged less than 1 year, the most in the world."

Julie Lévesque, 2016


"How many vaccinations were mandated for children in several countries of the western world according to data available in 2009. Sweden and Japan had 11 vaccines, Finland 12, Norway 13, Switzerland 16, Australia 27, Canada 28, and USA 36. It is safe to say that, if anything, more vaccines have been added to those schedules since 2009, especially the HPV vaccine for both girls and boys."

Catherine J. Frompovich, 2013


"The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation created the GAVI alliance to push vaccinations on the poorest
parts of the developing world in the name of "saving lives" and stopping disease.
... In April 2012, the Indian medical press reported that some 47,500 children had been paralyzed as a direct result of the polio vaccination campaign that had swept through their populous country. India's National Polio Surveillance Project found that a sharp rise in the cases of non-polio paralysis correlated with areas where doses of oral polio vaccine were also increased.
Worse, children afflicted with polio vaccine-derived non-polio paralysis were at more than twice the risk of dying than those with wild polio infection, according to Indian officials.
Bill Gates has publicly denied that his vaccination campaign harmed anyone.
... The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the UN's World Health Organization knew that oral polio vaccines caused paralysis - but they thought the trade off was worth it.
... After years of controversy in the United States, the use of oral polio vaccine (OPV) was discontinued in 2000 due to its proven link with vaccine-derived poliovirus (VDPV), and in the UK circa 2004.
The use of an injected and inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) replaced its usage in the Western world, while oral polio vaccine continues to be used in the developing world."

Aaron Dykes, 2013


"You have effectively taken a trivial disease - mumps - and by vaccinating, you have turned it into a more dangerous disease. One dose of MMR doesn't prevent it. Two doses of MMR don't prevent it. Three doses. You are creating a population that is dependent upon reboosting with vaccines for the rest of their lives to avoid this complication, a man-made complication..... They were so zealous. They so urgently needed to get this vaccine into the market that they ignored the potential problems and now we have a big problem. Mumps vaccine is a dangerous vaccine. It does not work."

Dr. Andrew Wakefield


"There were 47,500 cases of non-polio acute flaccid paralysis [NPAFP] reported in in India 2011, the same year India was declared "polio-free".
... The available data shows that the incidents tracked back to areas were doses of the polio vaccine were frequently administered. The national rate of non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP) in India is 25-35 times the international average.
... In addition to this data, it appears that the polio vaccines are themselves the leading cause of polio paralysis in India."

Brandon Turbeville


"in the early 1990s, the Institute of Medicine (IOM), which spent 20 months studying all the available data on vaccinations, confirmed that no controlled clinical trials have ever been conducted to rule out whether vaccines can cause chronic neurological damage, blood disorders, juvenile diabetes, Guillain-Barre paralysis and learning disabilities."

"There is no question that HIV was introduced into the U.S. male homosexual population via the gay hepatitis B vaccine experiment that took place between 1978 and 1981... Not surprisingly, the government has refused to release data on the number of AIDS deaths that have occured in the large group of gay men who initially volunteered for the vaccine experiment."

"The word vaccine informed consent is an oxymoron. To be able to give informed consent, you have to have the information to give. If vaccine safety information does not exist, you're not in a position to give that information. So the process of informed consent never gets out of the starting blocks."

Dr. Andrew Wakefield


"According to a CDC epidemiologist named Tom Verstraeten, who had analyzed the agency's massive database containing the medical records of 100,000 children, a mercury-based preservative in the vaccines - thimerosal - appeared to be responsible for a dramatic increase in autism and a host of other neurological disorders among children.
The CDC paid the Institute of Medicine to conduct a study to whitewash the risks of thimerosal, ordering researchers to "rule out" the chemical's link to autism.
It withheld Dr. Verstraeten's findings, even though they had been slated for immediate publication, and told other scientists that his original data had been "lost" and could not be replicated."

"'Tissue Scurvy' is an autoimmune disorder in which there is an abundance of Vitamin C in the body, but the Vitamin C is unable to enter the tissue cells to perform its functions of maintaining the integrity of the blood vessels and skeletal tissue. Without cellular Vitamin C, various critical enzymatic actions cannot occur.
The result of this intracellular lack of Vitamin C is the development of fractures, hemorrhages and other lesions of Tissue Scurvy including the so-called shaken baby syndrome (SBS) triad features which are solely a result of the auto-immune response to a toxic trauma.
The relationship of vaccines and autoimmune response, including Tissue Scurvy is well established. In fact, the most common cause of Tissue Scurvy In infants and children is the administration of vaccines, any vaccine. Symptoms are generally seen within 4 weeks of vaccine administration."

"From 1980 through 1999, there were 162 confirmed cases of paralytic polio cases reported in the U.S.. Of the 162 cases, eight cases were acquired outside the United States and imported. The last imported case caused by wild poliovirus into the United States was reported in 1993. The remaining 154 cases were vaccine-associated paralytic polio (VAPP) caused by live oral poliovirus vaccine (OPV)."

"Since 1991, when the CDC and the FDA had recommended that three additional vaccines laced with the preservative be given to extremely young infants the estimated number of cases of autism had increased fifteenfold [in 2005], from one in every 2,500 children to one in 166 children."

"What had been done to establish the safety of giving Hepatitis B vaccine on day one of life? Not just giving it on day one but giving it on day one to every infant whether they were born at 24 weeks or 30 weeks or 36 weeks or 40 weeks, whatever their birth weight was, whether they were 10 lbs or 2 lbs, they were getting the same shot at day one as a matter of policy. Safety studies? We couldn't find them. And that was really shocking. How could this be? If your'e going to make it a matter of policy for every kid in the country, then you'e got to be absolutely certain that you got the safety set that is right, because if not, you may produce insidious problems, minor degrees of damage which you don't pick up straight away but are catastrophic."

"Even the ideal influenza vaccine, matched perfectly to circulating strains of wild influenza and capable of stopping all influenza viruses, can only deal with a small part of the 'flu' problem because most 'flu' appears to have nothing to do with influenza. Every year, hundreds of thousands of respiratory specimens are tested across the US. Of those tested, on average only 6% are found to be influenza positive."

Dr. Peter Doshi in a British Medical Journal, 2013


"Multiple loads of toxins are delivered through the DTP vaccine which include formaldehyde, aluminum hydroxide, aluminum phosphate, thimerosal, and polysorbate 80, and other chemicals. That means that every DTP vaccine contains carcinogenic, neurotoxic, immunotoxic and sterility agents just like many flu vaccines. These chemicals then bioaccumulate in the child with each successive vaccine, further introducing an additional load of toxins with each injection."

Dave Mihalovic, 2013


"Vaccines contain a vast array of potentially dangerous ingredients, including antibiotics, formaldehyde, monosodium glutamate (MSG), bovine fetal tissue, polysorbate and heavy metals like aluminum and the mercury-containing preservative thimerosal. When these are shot into the bloodstream, they bypass the majority of the body's natural immune system which resides in the gut."

Melissa Melton, 2014


"For our government health officials at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), vaccines have been baptized safe and, therefore, there is no reason for further debate. In fact, so certain are those in charge of the nation's vaccination programs, even democratic discourse about vaccination controversies has been marginalized and smothered. There is no dissenting opinion published in any major industrial medical journal or magazine, nor found on any government health websites.
When put to the test, a meticulous review of the scientific literature finds that virtually all of the Federal health agencies assumptions are held in error. Furthermore, the CDC, FDA and HHS, with all of their resources, refuse to take into consideration the large body of clinical evidence that contradicts their biased vaccine policies."

"You do not combine three live viruses into one vaccine and assume that that is a benign process, that you can follow those children for 3, 4, 5 weeks and get away with it. These are viruses that are live, they are capable of establishing long-term infection and they are capable of producing long-term adverse events."

"You couldn't even construct a study that shows Thimerosal is safe. It's just too toxic. If you inject Thimerosal into an animal, its brain will sicken.

"A government inquiry has found that polio vaccines for infants funded by the Global Alliance for Vaccination and Immunisation [GAVI] are causing deaths and disabilities in regional countries including Pakistan.
The main vaccinations in question were the polio vaccine and the 5-in-1 pentavelent vaccine, which were said to be responsible for the deaths and disability of a number of children in Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and Japan.
The vaccines were funded by the Global Alliance for Vaccination and Immunization (GAVI) an organization financed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Children's Vaccine Program, the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association, the Rockefeller Foundation, the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Bank."

in 2000, it was one child in every 150. Since then, autism diagnoses have been steadily increasing each year.

"Removing thimerosal from vaccines could entail financial losses of inventory if current vaccine inventory is wasted. It could harm one or more manufacturers and may then decrease the number of suppliers.
The evidence justifying this kind of abrupt policy change [immediate removal of mercury from all vaccines] does not appear to exist, and it could entail financial losses for all existing stocks of vaccines that contain thimerosal."

Dr. Roger Bernier from the CDC


"Manufacturers of vaccines and thimerosal have never conducted adequate testing on the safety of thimerosal. The FDA has never required manufacturers to conduct adequate safety testing on thimerosal and ethylmercury compounds.
... At the same time that the incidence of autism was growing, the number of childhood vaccines containing thimerosal was growing, increasing the amount of ethylmercury to which infants were exposed threefold.
... A growing number of scientists and researchers believe that a relationship between the increase in neurodevelopmental disorders of autism and the increased use of thimerosal in vaccines is plausible and deserves more scrutiny.
... The CDC's failure to state a preference for thimerosal-free vaccines in 2000 and again 2001 was an abdication of their responsibility.
... Thimerosal should be removed from these vaccines. No amount of mercury is appropriate in any childhood vaccine."

"Perhaps the cleverest aspect of the influenza marketing strategy surrounds the claim that 'flu' and 'influenza' are the same. The distinction seems subtle, and purely semantic.

"Thimserosal used as a preservative in vaccines is likely related to the autism epidemic. This epidemic in all probability may have been prevented or curtailed had the FDA not been asleep at the switch regarding the lack of safety data regarding injected thimerosal and the sharp rise of infant exposure to his known neurotoxin. Our public health agencies' failure to act is indicative of institutional malfeasance for self-protection and misplaced protectionism of the pharmaceutical industry."

"The financial health of the industry should never have been a factor in this decision [thimerosal removal]. The financial health of vaccine manufacturers certainly should never have been more important to the Federal health officials than the health and well being of the nation's children. The CDC has a responsibility to protect the health of the American public. If there were any doubts about the neurological effects of ethylmercury in vaccines on children-and there were substantial doubts-the prevailing consideration should have been how best to protect children from potential harm. However, it appears that protecting the industry's profits took precedent over protecting children from mercury damage."

Subcommittee on Human Rights and Wellness in the House's Committee on Government Reform, May 2003


"The worst epidemic ever to hit America, the Spanish Influenza of 1918, was the result of a massive nationwide vaccination campaign.
... The 1918 flu period suddenly struck just after the end of World War I when our soldiers were returning home from overseas.
... World War I was the first war in which all the known vaccines were forced on all the servicemen.
... This mix of poison drugs and putrid protein of which the vaccines were composed, caused such widespread disease and death among the soldiers that it was the common talk of the day, that more of our men were being killed by medical shots than by enemy shots from guns.
... The death and disease rate among the vaccinated soldiers was four times higher than among the unvaccinated civilians.
... World War I was a shorter war than the vaccine-makers had planned on, only about a year for the United States, so the vaccine promoters had a lot of unused, spoiling vaccines left over which they wanted to sell at a good profit.
... So they did what they usually do, they called a meeting behind closed doors, and plotted the whole sordid program, a nationwide (worldwide) vaccination drive using all their vaccines, and telling the people that the soldiers were coming home with many dread diseases contracted in foreign countries and that it was the patriotic duty of every man, woman and child to get "protected" by rushing down to the vaccination centers and having all the shots.
... The result was, that almost the entire population submitted to the shots without question, and it was only a matter of hours until people began dropping dead, while many others collapsed with a disease of such virulence that no one had ever seen anything like it before.
... They had all the characteristics of the diseases they had been vaccinated against.
... Disaster ran rampant in the camps. Some of the military hospitals were filled with nothing but paralyzed soldiers, and they were called war casualties, even before they left American soil.
... The doctors didn't want this massive vaccine disease to reflect on them, so they, agreed among themselves to call it Spanish Influenza. Spain was a far away place and some of the soldiers had been there, so the idea of calling it Spanish Influenza seemed to be a good way to lay the blame on someone else.
... 20,000,000 died of that flu epidemic, worldwide, and it seemed to be almost universal or as far away as the vaccinations reached. Greece and a few other countries, which did not accept the vaccines, were the only ones that were not hit by the flu... At home the only ones who escaped the influenza were those who had refused the vaccinations."

"The Catholic church is the biggest financial power, wealth accumulator and property owner in existence. She is a greater possessor of material riches than any other single institution, corporation, bank, giant trust, government or state of the whole globe.

"The Vatican played a key role in the emergence of the cocaine trade in the 1970s by offering the drug cartels its money-laundering service in exchange for stiff fees. To initiate this process, the Holy See established a chain of shell companies in Panama and the Bahamas that transferred deposits from the cartels to Banco Ambrosiano and other Italian banks. From these private and parochial banks, the money flowed to the IOR (the Vatican Bank) and from the IOR to financial firms in Switzerland, Luxembourg, and Liechtenstein."

"In 1982 Reagan met with Pope John Paul II... At the meeting the two agreed to launch a clandestine program to tear Eastern Europe away from the Soviets. Poland, the Pope's country of origin, would be the key. Catholic priests, the AFL-CIO, the National Endowment for Democracy, the Vatican Bank and CIA would all be deployed."

Dean Henderson in his book "Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf"


"Throughout the 1950s, money for the activities of the Catholic Gladio - Catholic Church units of the CIA stay-behind operation in Europe - was provided by the CIA, which annually allocated $30 to $50 million to covert operations in Italy. These funds were not only washed by the Vatican but also funneled by the pope to groups and organizations that met with his approval.
... To protect the clandestine nature of Catholic Gladio and the other stay-behind units, meetings of the anti-Communist forces were conducted in Masonic lodges. Eventually, several "stay-behind" units in Italy evolved into covert Masonic organizations. One such unit became known as Propaganda Due, or P2.
... By 1965, the membership roll of P2 contained the names of many ecclesiastical dignitaries... Scores of Vatican officials, including cardinals, Roman Catholic hierarchs, and prominent bishops and archbishops, would become members of Masonic lodges-many with ties to P2.
... As it transformed into one of the world's richest and most powerful institutions, the Roman Catholic Church shed many of its long-held doctrines for the sake of political expediency and financial gain, including the condemnations of Freemasonry and usury. This transformation crystallized with the pope's embrace of Licio Gelli, who became a Knight of Malta.
... By 1970, Licio Gelli had emerged as P2's new Worshipful Master and became known by the code name Filippo. The lodge now received massive infusions of cash-estimated at $10 million per month-from the CIA's black funds. This money was used to purchase the weaponry and material necessary to mount terrorist attacks throughout Italy, Greece, Turkey, and South America."

"The Institute for Works of Religion (IOR), commonly referred to as the Vatican Bank, is a privately held financial institution located inside Vatican City. Founded in 1942, the IOR's role is to safeguard and administer property intended for works of religion or charity. The bank accepts deposits only from top Church officials and entities, according to Italian legal scholar Settimio Caridi. It is run by a president but overseen by five cardinals who report directly to the Vatican and the Vatican's secretary of state. Because so little is known about the bank's daily operations and transactions, it has often been called "the most secret bank in the world"

Ari Jorish, Forbes , June 26, 2012


"Created in 1942, the Istituto per le Opere di Religione (IOR), is commonly known as the Vatican Bank... The bank remains a sovereign financial agency within a sovereign state. It is an entity unto itself, without corporate or ecclesiastical ties to any other agency of the Holy See. As such, it cannot be forced to release the source of any deposit. The bank resides under the direct jurisdiction of the pope. He owns it; he controls it. Swiss guards are stationed to guard the entrance to the bank, and the hermetically sealed bronze doors open only to select members of the Roman Curia-the governing body of the entire Roman Catholic Church.
... Because of its clandestine workings, millions can be deposited into the IOR on a continuous basis and channeled into numbered Swiss bank accounts without the possibility of detection. It was the perfect place for the CIA and the Sicilian Mafia to launder their ill-gotten gains of the narcotics trade and for the Roman Church to fund its political mission. And [according to Moneyval the anti-money-laundering committee of the Council of Europe] it remains one of the world's leading laundries for dirty cash."

"One week after his election, Pope John Paul received a preliminary report on the internal workings of the Vatican Bank. The bank, which had been formed to further "religious works," was now serving a distinctly secular purpose. Of the 11,000 accounts within its registry, fewer than 1,650 served to further an ecclesiastical cause. The remaining 9,350 accounts served as "slush funds" for special friends of the Vatican ... and leading Sicilian Mafiosi, including the Corleone, Spatola, and Inzerillo families and members of the Camorra of Naples and Milan...

"Pablo Escobar and other leading drug lords were encouraged by the CIA to deposit their earnings in eight firms that had been set up by the Vatican as money laundries. By 1978, when John Paul II ascended to the papal throne, the money coming in to these firms from the Medellin Cartel alone was enormous, since Escobar, at the height of his power, was smuggling fifteen tons of cocaine into the United States every day.
... The money the money-laundering firms received was wired or transported by courier, often a cleric, to the central headquarters of Banco Ambrosiano in Milan. From Milan, the money was re-routed to the IOR (Vatican Bank) which charged a processing fee of 15 to 20 percent. From Vatican City, the funds were transferred to numbered bank accounts in Switzerland.
... The funds generated from the cocaine sales were used to sponsor black operations in South and Central America. A substantial amount of this cash was funneled into the IOR's (Vatican Bank) offshore shells."

"Hugo Chavez re-founded his country, freed it from colonial domination, thrust the invisible poor permanently into the national spotlight, redistributed oil revenues to benefit the Venezuelan majority, sharply reduced illiteracy and poverty, radically improved public health, raised pensions and the minimum wage, mandated pay for housework, established health clinics, schools, cooperatives and popular councils throughout the country, all this while making the stagnant Venezuelan economy grow. He strengthened the hand of the oil-producing countries against the international oil oligarchs, derailed Washington's "free trade" market of the Americas (substituting an alternative economic integration model based on mutual aid), and laid the foundation for a new brand of socialism in the 21st century when most people were loathe to even mention socialism."

"The funding of political groups in Venezuela, and others throughout Latin America that promote US agenda, has increased since the April 2002 coup against President Chávez. Through two principal Department of State agencies, USAID and the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), the US government has channeled more than $50 million to opposition groups in Venezuela since 2002. The USAID/NED budget to fund groups in Venezuela in 2010 is nearly $15 million, doubled from last year's $7 million. This is a state policy of Washington, which the Obama Administration plans to amp up. They call it "democracy promotion", but it's really democracy subversion and destabilization... Through USAID and NED, and their "partner NGOs" and contractors, such as Freedom House, International Republican Institute, National Democratic Institute, Pan-American Development Foundation and Development Alternatives, Inc., hundreds of political groups, parties and programs are presently being funded in Venezuela to promote regime change against the Chávez government."

"Living standards of the majority of Venezuelans have dramatically improved under [Hugo] Chávez. Since 2004, when the government gained control over the oil industry and the economy had recovered from the devastating, extra-legal attempts to overthrow it (including the 2002 US-backed military coup and oil strike of 2002-2003), poverty has been cut in half and extreme poverty by 70%. And this measures only cash income. Millions have access to healthcare for the first time, and college enrolment has doubled, with free tuition for many students. Inequality has also been considerably reduced. By contrast, the two decades that preceded Chávez amount to one of the worst economic failures in Latin America, with real income per person actually falling by 14% between 1980 and 1998."

Eva Golinger interviewed by Mike Whitney, 2009


"The Israeli elite repeatedly criticise Hitler's actions against the Jews, and indeed Hitler's actions must be criticised, not just against the Jews but against the world. It's also fascism that Israel is doing to the Palestinian people ... terrorism and fascism."

Hugo Chavez


"The Venezuelan opposition has orchestrated economic sabotage, corporate smuggling, black market currency manipulations, full scale hoarding of food and essential products. They have closed highways, burned public buildings, have dropped grenades from a helicopter on to the Supreme Court offices, have assaulted, lynched and even burned alive young men of dark skin "who looked Chavista". This is a violent opposition steeped in racism and classism against their own people and in the service of foreign powers and big oil."

Maria Páez Victor and Edu Montesanti, 2017


"The Empire is afraid that the people of the United States will find out the truth. that a Bolivarian movement, or a Lincoln movement, or a movement of conscious citizens could erupt in their own country and transform the system."

"I want that place [Vietnam] bombed to smithereens. If we draw the sword, we're going to bomb those bastards all over the place. Let it fly, let it fly."

President Richard Nixon, 1972


"The peasants watched as we supported a ruthless dictatorship in South Vietnam which aligned itself with extortionist landlords and executed its political opponents. The peasants watched as we poisoned their water, bombed and machine-gunned their huts, annihilated their crops, and sent them wandering into the towns, where thousands of homeless children roamed the streets like animals, begging for food and selling their mothers and sisters to American soldiers.
... We have destroyed their land... We have corrupted their women and children and killed their men. What liberators."

Martin Luther King, 1967


"What the United States is doing in Vietnam is the most significant example of philanthropy extended by one people to another that we have witnessed in our times ... primitive peoples with savagery in their hearts have to be helped to understand the true basis of a civilized existence."

David Lawrence, editor of U.S. News and World Report 1966


"What happened [to Vietnamese society] was largely the result of the war. It destroyed the old, traditional government and customs and practices. The war came close, politically if not physically, to bombing them back to the Stone Age."

Senator William Fulbright


"Does one American in 1,000 or in 100,000, realize that, whereas the Germans dropped 80,000 tons of bombs on Britain in more than five years of war ... under Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon we have dropped a total of 7 million tons of bombs on Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos- vastly more than we and the British let loose on Germany and Japan together in World War II? It was done in the name of "a just peace," of course. Has not Nixon said it dozens of times, his face on the TV screen frozen in unctuousness, as he sent his troops to invade a new country - Cambodia, Laos - or as he ordered his bombers to resume unloading tens of thousands of tons of more lethal bombs on a country which had no Air Force with which to defend itself?"

William Shirer


"[In Vietnam] between 1962 and 1971, an estimated 20 million gallons of defoliants were sprayed on 8 million acres of forests and crops. More than three thousand villages were contaminated, and 60 percent of the defoliants used were agent Orange."

Marie-Monique Robin in the book "The World According to Monsanto


"In excess of 1,300,000 [Vietnamese] people were killed ... and many others were maimed for life."

William F. Pepper in his book "An Act of State: the Execution of Martin Luther King"


"By 1970, Vietnamese babies were being born without eyes, with deformed hearts and stumps instead of legs. Six pounds of toxic chemicals per head of population were dumped on the people of Vietnam."

William F. Pepper in his book "An Act of State: the Execution of Martin Luther King"


"The upper spheres of Wall Street overshadow the real economy. The accumulation of large amounts of money wealth by a handful of Wall Street conglomerates and their associated hedge funds is reinvested in the acquisition of real assets. Paper wealth is transformed into the ownership and control of real productive assets, including industry, services, natural resources and infrastructure."

Andrew Gavin Marshall, Global Research


"New York and London... have become the world's two biggest laundries of criminal and drug money, and offshore tax havens. Not the Cayman Islands, not the Isle of Man or Jersey. The big laundering is right through the City of London and Wall Street."

Martin Woods, bank money laundering investigator, Observer newspaper, 2011


"I spent thirty-three years in the Marines, most of my time being a hlgh class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism."

General Smedley Butler, former US Marine Corps Commandant, 1935


"No news broadcast is complete without a summary of the day's events on Wall Street. Yet only two percent of the public owns half of the country's individual stock and bond holdings."

Martin A. Lee and Norman Solomon in their book "Unreliable Sources"


"Wall Street owns the country. It is no longer a government of the people, by the people and for the people, but a government of Wall Street, by Wall Street and for Wall Street."

populist orator Mary Elizabeth Lease of Kansas, late 1800s


"Because of its dominant position in Wall Street, the [J. P.] Morgan firm came also to dominate other Wall Street powers, such as Carnegie, Whitney, Vanderbilt, Brown-Harriman, or Dillon-Reed. Close alliances were made with Rockefeller, Mellon, and Duke interests but not nearly so intimate ones with the great industrial powers like du Pont and Ford. [Because] ... of the great influence of this "Wall Street" alignment, an influence great enough to merit the name of the "American Establishment," this group could ... control the Federal government and, in consequence, had to adjust to a good many government actions ... [which they had secretly supported ]. The chief of these were in taxation law, beginning with the graduated income tax in 1913, but culminating, above all else, in the inheritance tax. These tax laws drove the great private fortunes dominated by Wall Street into tax-exempt foundations, which became a major link in the Establishment network between Wall Street, the Ivy League, and the Federal government."

Carroll Quigley in his book "Tragedy and Hope"


"Plummeting stock prices [in 1929] ruined small investors, but not the top "insiders" on Wall Street. Paul Warburg had issued a tip in March of 1929 that the Crash was coming. Before it did, John D. Rockefeller, Bernard Baruch, Joseph P. Kennedy, and other money barons got out of the market.
... Early withdrawal from the market not only preserved the fortunes of these men: it also enabled them to return later and buy up whole companies for a song. Shares that once sold for a dollar now cost a nickel. Joseph P. Kennedy's worth reportedly grew from $4 million in 1929 to $100 million in 1935."

James Perloff in his book "The Shadows of Power"


"WaIl Street financed the German cartels in the mid-1920s which in turn proceeded to bring Hitler to power.
The financing for Hitler and his S. S. street thugs came in part from affiliates or subsidiaries of U.S. firms, including Henry Ford in 1922, payments by I. G. Farben and General Electric in 1933, followed by the Standard Oil of New Jersey and I.T.T. subsidiary payments to Heinrich Himmler up to 1944.
U.S. multi-nationals under the control of Wall Street profited handsomely from Hitler's military construction program in the 1930s and at least until 1942.
International bankers used political influence in the U. S. to cover up their wartime collaboration."

Antony C. Sutton in his book "Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler"


"What the [Wall Street] bailout does is it takes troubled financial instruments off the balance sheet of the banks and puts them on the balance sheet of the taxpayer at the US Treasury. So it's a bailout of the financial institutions whose recklessness caused the problem. The money is essentially being poured into the coffers of Washington's financial donor base."

Paul Craig Roberts, 2008


"During a period of a few years beginning around 2007, several thousand employees of stock brokers, banks, mortgage companies, insurance companies, credit-rating agencies, and other financial institutions, mainly in New York, had great fun getting obscenely rich while creating and playing with pieces of paper known by names like derivatives, collateralized debt obligations, index funds, credit default swaps, structured investment vehicles, subprime mortgages, and other exotic terms. The result has been a severe depression, seriously hurting hundreds of millions of lives in the United States and abroad.
No employee of any of these companies has seen the inside of a prison cell for playing such games with our happiness.
For more than half a century members of the United States foreign policy and military establishments have compiled a record of war crimes and crimes against humanity that the infamous beasts and butchers of history could only envy.
Not a single one of these American officials has come any closer to a proper judgment than going to see the movie "Judgment at Nuremberg"."

author Wiliam Blum


"[The philosophy of Wall Street financiers was] anything but laissez-faire competition, which was the last system they envisaged. Socialism, communism, fascism or their variants were acceptable. The ideal for these financiers was "cooperation," forced if necessary. Individualism was out, and competition was immoral... compulsory cooperation was their golden road to a legal monopoly. Under the guise of public service, social objectives, and assorted do-goodism it is fundamentally "Let society go to work for Wall Street."

Antony C. Sutton in his book "Wall Street and FDR"



"There is nothing puzzling about America's gratuitously aggressive foreign policy. What an aggressive foreign policy accomplishes by slow degrees, a state of war accomplishes in a trice. Overnight [war] kills reform, overnight it transforms insurgents into traitors and the Republic into an imperiled realm. Overnight it strangles free politics, distracts and overawes the citizenry. Overnight it blasts public hope."

Walter Karp


"Why, of course, the people don't want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship."

Hermann Goering - Nazi leader


"Without war, no government has ever been able to obtain acquiescence in its 'legitimacy,' or right to rule its society... Obviously, if the war system were to be discarded, new political machinery would be needed at once to serve this vital subfunction. Until it is developed, the continuance of the war system must be assured, if for no other reason, among others, than to preserve whatever quality and degree of poverty a society requires as an incentive, as well as to maintain the stability of its internal organization of power."

Report from Iron Mountain, 1967


"The primary aim of modern warfare is to use up the products of the machine without raising the general standard of living... the essential act of war is destruction, not necessarily of human lives, but of the products of human labor. The two aims ... are to conquer the whole surface of the earth and to extinguish once and for all the possibility of independent thought."

George Orwell in his book "1984"


"Of all the enemies of true liberty, war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.... No nation can preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare."

James Madison, 1795


"The normal profits of a business concern in the United States are six, eight, ten, and sometimes twelve percent. But war-time profits --twenty, sixty, one hundred, three hundred, and even eighteen hundred per cent --the sky is the limit... Of course, it isn't put that crudely in war time. It is dressed into speeches about patriotism, love of country, and "we must all put our shoulders to the wheel," but the profits jump and leap and skyrocket --and are safely pocketed."

Major General Smedley Butler


"We like war, we are warlike people. We like war because we are good at it. You know why we are good at it because we get a lot of practice. This country is only 200 years old and already we have had 10 major wars. We average a major war every 20 years in this country, so we are good at it. And that is a good thing we are, we are not very good in anything else anymore. We can't build a decent car, can't make a TV set or VCR worth a fuck. We've got no steel industry left, can't educate our young people, can't get health care for our old people, but we can bomb the shit out of your country alright, especially if your country is full of brown people. That's our hobby. That's our new job in the world, bombing brown people! Iraq, Panama, Grenada, Libya. If you've got some brown people in your country, tell them to watch the fuck out or we will god damn bomb them!"

George Carlin


"We should think carefully about the reality of war. Most of us have been conditioned to regard military combat as exciting and glamorous - an opportunity for men to prove their competence and courage. Since armies are legal, we feel that war is acceptable; in general, nobody feels that war is criminal or that accepting its criminal attitude. In fact, we have been brainwashed. War is neither glamorous nor attractive. It is monstrous. It's very nature is one of tragedy and suffering."

Dalai Lama


"War is inextricably linked to the impoverishment of people at home and around the world. Militarization and the economic crisis are intimately related. The provision of essential goods and services to meet basic human needs has been replaced by a profit-driven "killing machine" in support of America's "Global War on Terror". The poor are made to fight the poor. Yet war enriches the upper class, which controls industry, the military, oil and banking. In a war economy, death is good for business, poverty is good for society, and power is good for politics. Western nations, particularly the United States, spend hundreds of billions of dollars a year to murder innocent people in far-away impoverished nations."

Michel Chossudovsky and Andrew Gavin Marshall


"Do you want to know the cause of war? It is capitalism, greed, the dirty hunger for dollars. Take away the capitalist, and you will sweep war from the earth."

Henry Ford, Founder, Ford Motors


"Since the keystone of the international banking empires has been government bonds it has been in the interest of these international bankers to encourage government debt. The higher the debt the more the interest. Nothing drives government deeply into debt like a war; and it has not been an uncommon practice among international bankers to finance both sides of the bloodiest military conflicts."

Gary Allen in his book "None Dare Call It Conspiracy"


"War is largely a matter of money. Bankers lend money to foreign countries and when they cannot repay, the President sends Marines to get it. I know--I've been in eleven of these expeditions."

General Smedley Butler, former US Marine Corps Commandant, 1935


[The trustees of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, at a 1911 meeting] raised a question. And they discussed the question and the question was specific, 'Is there any means known to man more effective than war, assuming you wish to alter the life of an entire people?' And they discussed this and at the end of a year they came to the conclusion that there was no more effective means to that end known to man. So, they raised question number two, and the question was, 'How do we involve the United States in a war?

Norman Dodd, the Research Director of the 1954 House of Representatives' Special Committee to Investigate Tax Exempt Foundations (the Reece Committee)


"American boys were taken out of the fields and offices and factories and classrooms and put into the Army ranks. There they were remolded; they were made over; they were made to "about face"; to regard murder as the order of the day. They were put shoulder to shoulder and, through mass psychology, they were entirely changed. We used them for a couple of years and trained them to think nothing at all of killing or of being killed. Then, suddenly, we discharged them and told them to make another "about face"! This time they had to do their own readjustment, without mass psychology, without officers' aid and advice and without nation-wide propaganda. We didn't need them anymore. So we scattered them about without any speeches or parades. Many, too many, of these fine young boys are eventually destroyed, mentally, because they could not make that final "about face" alone."

Major General Smedley Butler


"Whether the substitute [to war] is ritual in nature or functionally substantive, unless it provides a believable life-and-death threat it will not serve the socially organizing function of war."

Report from Iron Mountain, 1967


"When the tyrant has disposed of foreign enemies by conquest or treaty, and there is nothing to fear from them, then he is always stirring up some war or other, in order that the people may require a leader."



"The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace supported U.S. entry into the war [WWI], not for any patriotic purpose, but so that the war would provide an excuse for, if not necessitate, Andrew Carnegie's goal of British-American regional government."

William H Mcllhany II, commenting on the minutes from the 1911 trustees meeting of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace


"The essential act of war is destruction, not necessarily of human lives, but of the products of human labour. War is a way of shattering to pieces, or pouring into the stratosphere, or sinking in the depths of the sea, materials which might otherwise be used to make the masses too comfortable, and hence, in the long run, too intelligent. Even when weapons of war are not actually destroyed, their manufacture is still a convenient way of expending labour power without producing anything that can be consumed.
... War accomplishes the necessary destruction, but accomplishes it in a psychologically acceptable way. In principle it would be quite simple to waste the surplus labour of the world by building temples and pyramids, by digging holes and filling them up again, or even by producing vast quantities of goods and then setting fire to them. But this would provide only the economic and not the emotional basis for a hierarchical society."

George Orwell in his book "1984"


"The United States of America has been engaged in some kind of war during 222 out of the nation's total 239 years of existence. Put another way, in the entire span of US history, this country has only experienced 17 years without conflict, meaning that 93% of the time, America is involved in at least one war."

Charlie Robinson, in his book "The Octopus of Global Control", 2017


"I'm fed up to the ears with old men dreaming up wars for young men to die in."

Senator George McGovern


"Three steps must be taken to smash the war racket.
1. We must take the profit out of war.
2. We must permit the youth of the land who would bear arms to decide whether or not there should be war.
3. We must limit our military forces to home defense purposes."

Major General Smedley Butler


"War with Russia will be nuclear. Washington has prepared for it. Washington has abandoned the ABM treaty, created what it thinks is an ABM shield, and changed its war doctrine to permit US nuclear first strike. All of this is obviously directed at Russia, and the Russian government knows it.

Paul Craig Roberts, 2014


"The U.S. is frantically surrounding China with military weapons, advanced aircraft, naval fleets and a multitude of military bases from Japan, South Korea and the Philippines through several nearby smaller Pacific islands to its new and enlarged base in Australia."

Jack A. Smith, CounterPunch


"I don't believe anyone will consciously launch World War III. The situation now is more like the eve of World War I, when great powers were armed and ready to go when an incident set things off. Ever since Gorbachev naively ended the Cold War, the hugely over-armed United States has been actively surrounding Russia with weapons systems, aggressive military exercises, NATO expansion. At the same time, in recent years the demonization of Vladimir Putin has reached war propaganda levels. Russians have every reason to believe that the United States is preparing for war against them, and are certain to take defensive measures. This mixture of excessive military preparations and propaganda against an "evil enemy" make it very easy for some trivial incident to blow it all up."

Diana Johnstone, author of "Queen of Chaos"


"The master class has always declared the wars; the subject class has always fought the battles. The master class has had all to gain and nothing to lose, while the subject class has had nothing to gain and all to lose--especially their lives."

Eugene Debs , Canton, Ohio, June 16, 1918


"I spent thirty-three years in the Marines, most of my time being a hlgh class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism.
I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1910-1912. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City [Bank] boys to collect revenue in. I helped in the rape of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street.
In China in 1927 l helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.
I had a swell racket. l was rewarded with honors, medals, promotions. l might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate a racket in three city districts. The Marines operated on three continents."

General Smedley Butler, former US Marine Corps Commandant, 1935


"Of the nearly trillion dollars the U.S. invests in war and war-related activities, nothing goes to peace. No money, no effort, no thought. The very idea that there might be peaceful alternatives to endless war is so discredited that it's left to utopians, bleeding hearts, and feathered doves."

Tom Engelhardt, TomDispatch, 2009


"Economic surrogates for war must meet two principal criteria. They must be "wasteful," in the common sense of the word, and they must operate outside the normal supply-demand system. A corollary that should be obvious is that the magnitude of the waste must be sufficient to meet the needs of a particular society. An economy as advanced and complex as our own requires the planned average annual destruction of not less than 10 percent of gross national product."

Report from Iron Mountain, 1967


"The United States operates almost 800 military bases in 70 different countries."

"The primary aim of modern warfare is to use up the products of the machine without raising the general standard of living."

Winston Smith in George Orwell's book "1984"


"Is a young man bound to serve his country in war? In addition to his legal duty there is perhaps also a moral duty, but it is very obscure. What is called his country is only its government and that government consists merely of professional politicians, a parasitical and anti-social class of men. They never sacrifice themselves for their country. They make all wars, but very few of them ever die in one. If it is the duty of a young man to serve his country under all circumstances then it is equally the duty of an enemy young man to serve his. Thus we come to a moral contradiction and absurdity so obvious that even clergymen and editorial writers sometimes notice it."

H.L. Mencken


"Two classes benefit by war-the militarists and the moneylenders... the cause of militarism is never patriotism, it is usually commercialism. The warmongers urging military preparedness in America are Wall Street bankers .... I am opposed to war in every sense of the word."

Henry Ford, 1915


"["Report from Iron Mountain" says that] the prime political function of warfare is to preserve poverty in the society as an aid to maintaining the elite class in control."

"As long as the greatest honor one can aspire to is to be shipped off and killed in somebody's war, there will be war.
... War will exist until the distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige as the warrior does today."

David Swanson in his book "War Is A Lie"


"We have had disarmament conferences and limitations of arms conferences. They don't mean a thing. We send our professional soldiers and our sailors and our politicians and our diplomats to these conferences. And what happens? The professional soldiers and sailors don't want to disarm. No admiral wants to be without a ship. No general wants to be without a command. Both mean men without jobs. They are not for disarmament. They cannot be for limitations of arms. And at all these conferences, lurking in the background but allpowerful, just the same, are the sinister agents of those who profit by war. They see to it that these conferences do not disarm or seriously limit armaments. The chief aim of any power at any of these conferences has not been to achieve disarmament to prevent war but rather to get more armament for itself and less for any potential foe."

Major General Smedley Butler


"A good soldier is a blind, heartless, soulless, murderous machine. He is not a man. His is not a brute, for brutes kill only in self defense. All that is human in him, all that is divine in him, all that constitutes the man has been sworn away when he took the enlistment roll. His mind, his conscience, aye, his very soul, are in the keeping of his officer. No man can fall lower than a soldier-it is a depth beneath which we cannot go."

Jack London


"War means blind obedience, unthinking stupidity, brutish callousness, wanton destruction, and irresponsible murder."

Alexander Berkman


"The permanent possibility of war is the foundation for stable government; it supplies the basis for general acceptance of political authority. It has enabled societies to maintain necessary class distinctions, and it has ensured the subordination of the citizen to the state."

Report from Iron Mountain, 1967 reviewed by Alan Jones in his book "How The World Really Works"


"Presidents Clinton and Bush Jr. avoided the Vietnam War, Clinton through educational privilege, Bush through being the son of his father. President Obama never went to war. Vice Presidents Dan Quayle, Dick Cheney, and Joe Biden, like Clinton and Bush Jr., dodged the draft."

David Swanson in his book "War Is A Lie"


"The preparation for war is useful to the holders of centralized political power. When things go badly at home, when popular discontent becomes inconveniently articulate, it is always possible, in a world where war-making remains an almost sacred habit, to shift the people's attention away from domestic to foreign and military affairs. A flood of xenophobic or imperialistic propaganda is released by the government-controlled instruments of persuasion, a "strong policy" is adopted toward some foreign power, an appeal for "national unity" (in other words, unquestioning obedience to the ruling oligarchy) is launched, and at once it becomes unpatriotic for anybody to voice even the most justifiable complaints against mismanagement or oppression. It is difficult to see how any highly centralized government could afford to dispense with militarism and the threat of foreign war."

Aldous Huxley in his book " Science, Liberty and Peace", 1946
