Episode 4 Opening the Five Eyes Exposing The Methods of the Spies a

pEpisode 4: Opening the Five Eyes: Exposing The Methods of the Spies a So Im going to do something I havent done before but which I think is a really good exercise and that is that Im actually going to create one of my little slides right here for you, and Im going to call it the Access Waterfall For Technology Who gets technology first? And the answer to that is the military gets it first.

Episode 4 Opening the Five Eyes Exposing The Methods of the Spies a

They get it first because the global network . in fact Ill say the military via espionage. The global network is literally spying on innovators around the globe, seeing what theyre doing what theyre going to be doing, working out then, prioritizing what technologies they want to get their hands on first, and or developing their own because I should mention that obviously the military has its own RampampD programs as well, but it has a very strong interest in simply stealing the secrets of other nations or other foreign corporations etc. etc. So the military has access to technology long before we do.

And after the military is what I call the MilitaryIndustrial Complex. So this is where the contractors etc. are also given access to cuttingedge technology that is not yet available in the commercial space. So Ill just give a couple of quick examples there, in terms of the military Having primary access. In one of the NSA documents, it talks about . its talking about 1990 and its talking about how the global network as it existed in 1990 already operated and had access to a multinational multimedia portal.

So they were sharing articles and picture files between themselves in 1990. Now in 1990 we were using monochrome screens and we were lucky if we could use a newsgroup. We didnt have email, and these guys were sharing like article files and photos with each other the way that we were in what, like 1999, 2000, 2001? And this is what I mean about were a decade behind. And just in terms of the military industrial complex getting access to technology before any of us do, there are some fantastic WikiLeaks files about that.

So in WikiLeaks Hacking Team files, so this is an Italian corporation, private hacking corporate, mercenary hacking corporation called the Hacking Team and their emails, which were leaked to WikiLeaks, they had marketing materials from defense industry weapons manufacturers and in those emails they were being offered access to hardware and technology, which was only available to the militaryindustrialcomplex which was not in the commercial sphere which you and I could never go and access or buy, but the access to it was being extended to corporations and companies like Hacking Team who are like satellite companies or satellite service providers for the militaryindustrial complex. So thats yet another example of what I would call Tier 2. So Tier 1 is like the military, is the top of the food chain. The militaries that control this planet and all of our countriesnot our governments are in control its the militaries that are in control they are Tier 1 for the access to technology.

Tier 2 is the militaryindustrial complex. Okay, so then Tier 3. I would consider Tier 3 would be the commercial market for the global elite. Right, so this is the people who can .ah because this isjust one other thing about that Hacking Team the Italian crowd that I was talking about a second ago They, that mailing list, just to just to receive the emails, the marketing emails from the defense contractors, it costs 8, 000 euros.

Like you had to subscribe, you had to have a membership and pay 8, 000 euros just to even access these lists of technology hardware that were available for sale from the weapons manufacturers. So that gives you some idea, again its about creating that barrier, right, like a normal person cannot afford to pay 8, 000 euros to receive some marketing emails for a defense contractor. But a corporation, a company in the military . thats a part of the militaryindustrial complex, what do they care about 8, 000 euros. 8, 000 euros to them is like 8 to us.

So they use money to create a barrier to restrict that access, access to information about what even is available. And it takes you and I reading something like WikiLeaks years and years after the fact to even begin to get an understanding about what these guys have access to and what is out there in this world. So the next tier down from the militaryindustrial complex would be I would put the global elite. And by this, I mean people with money. And Im sure like, you would have seen it because they like to show their stuff off, on like, you know whatever lifestyles of the rich and famous, and the many MTV offshoots in more recent years, and you will see in the mega mansions they have technology in their homes which is beyond the wildest dreams of any consumer.

And the reason once again that they have that is because they have money. And so those who have been whose activities have been blessed by the systems of control that run in our society have been fiscally rewarded and not only does that mean they have a lot of money but it means they have access to technologies, which you and I simply cannot afford. So yet again money is being used as a barrier, an entry barrier to access to technology and to innovation.

So after these guys then we have the US commercial market. So this is like, you know, somewhere down the track, however, many years you think about like 1990 this is a multimedia portal. Right? So maybe 1992 these guys are getting access to it, so maybe 1995 these guys are starting to get access to it. So now its 1999 and theyre ready to roll it out to the American public and generally speaking, the American public are the first ones to get access to the first regular citizens of the world to get access to technology.

Ill put here US commercial market. And then after the US commercial market, this is where access to technology becomes a Id say almost a bludgeoning tool that is used for other countries that have relationships with the US for whatever to whatever extent. So I would put here US MICfavored partner countries.

So this is where you see the rest of the Five Eyes is gettingI mean I can tell you in New Zealand, I can absolutely tell you coming from New Zealand. New Zealand, think about it, is one of the four most favored countries in theory of the United States around the world, you know, the englishspeaking countries of this tightknit group, tightknit group that stick together. And New Zealand was always behind the US on technology.

Always, we always had to see and hear about things before they ever made it to us. So New Zealand would still be somewhere close to the top of that list, but now think about somewhere like, and Im just pulling like a country name out of a hat . Ghana Like where is Ghana on the where are the citizens of Ghana on their access to technology waterfall. They are like a way to hell down the bottom, and then now think about somewhere like Russia, or somewhere like Iran . where are they on the access to technology waterfall? Not only are they massive targets for RampampD espionage for anything they do manage to develop themselves out of their own universities or their own science and research research spaces, but they are also the last to be granted any type of access to innovation from the global network. So then we would have at the bottom here the very very very very very tail end of the waterfall as The USMIC leastfavored non partner countries, Ill just make this fullscreen.

So hopefully you can all see it. So there you go for any of you who were wondering whether I actually make these screens myself, whether I make these slides myself. Yes, all of this is my own research, its my own deductions, and its based on years of research, and if you go back through my body of work and my body of articles you will discover that every little piece of information I give you here is from research that I did at any given time and wrote about in my longform articles. So Im just going to save that.

And that is an excellent screen, I think, in my opinion to show the the way that access to technology is staggered in favor of the global network of intelligence agencies, and the military and the war mongers and the war wagers of this world, and how us little regular people down here are the absolute last to enjoy the fruits of any technological innovation. Weve also seen from studying the NSA documents that there is a humongous obsession inside the NSA with what they call Budget Day. And this is where once a year they prepare their budgets for Congressional approval and there are multiple documents in the NSA Snowden files with NSA warning its personnel do not submit anything which may in any way justify restriction of our funding. And they also tell the personnel there if they run the documents past a certain budgeting office that they will be sure to reword their requests and applications in a way which is most likely to maximize the funding that they can get from Congress for their activities.

So receiving the maximum amount of money possible is absolutely and definitely one of their strategic objectives. They are obsessed with stopping Congress getting information about their activities, but yet maximizing the amount of money that they can get Congress to approve for their activities. And they have no qualms about bending the truth in order to be able to justify that We in the Western world we operate under this fallacy, this complete fallacy of a meritocracy. Were told like anybody can become a millionaire.

If you have a great idea and you work really really hard and you have good people around you. You can be the next Bill Gates. Im telling you for a fact thats bullshit and Kim Dotcom is a classic example of that. Kin Dotcom had great ideas and great people and built amazing products that everybody liked and hundreds of millions of people were using and was consuming four percent of global Internet traffic. And what happened to Kim Dotcom?

Ah, hello. His house was raided by a hundred armed police with helicopters and attack dogs and hes now been through seven years of litigation and theyre attempting to extradite him. Where are theyattempting to extradite him to?

Theyre attempting to extradite him to the Eastern District Court of Virginia, which is the same court the prosecuted John Kiriakou, that is trying to extradite and prosecute Julian Assange, and that wants to prosecute Edward Snowden. So why is he being prosecuted in the Eastern District Court of Virginia? Apparently for copyright infringement. Copyright infringement is a civil offense and not a criminal offense and yet his home is ratided, all of his personal belongings are seized, his business is forcibly shut down.

The FBI seized his domains and his web sites. All of his customer data was erased from the face of this earth, and he has been relentlessly persecuted and smeared in the media. Why?

Because the meritocracy does not exist because Kim Dotcom was supporting WikiLeaks. Kim Dotcom took a stand against the intelligence agencies and would not capitulate and allow his business to be run by them, and as a result he became a target of them. And this is what happens at all levels of technological development. If your project shows any promise or any significance you will either be bought out or you will be destroyed.

And likewise they like these monopolies to exist in the hardware and software space, just like they want to create monopolies and maintain monopolies in the telco and ISP space, so we have how many cell phones in this world? We have hundreds of millions, if not billions of cellphones in this world. And how many operating systems are they running? I mean we have nearly the entire planet is on two operating systems, two mobile operating systems. Why do you think that is?

How can it be that on a planet the size of ours with as many software developers as we have that theres only two major really two major operating systems for mobile communications. And it comes back to that same principle. The intelligence agencies are actively restricting innovation in the technology space and particularly in mobile, anything related to Internet. They want to control who is supplying hardware and software services to the consumer markets, and its easier for them to control if there are a very small number of corporations that are dominating those markets.

And so its in their best interest to prevent people from being able to develop alternatives to that. So in innovation we all know, you know, the CIA has INQTEL, they use money. Its another form of coercion.

They will identify projects developing projects which are the strategic importance to them and they will fund them, and in funding them, theyre then able to control the direction of that project theyre able to control who is or isnt involved in the advancement of that project theyre able to control the corporate relationships of that project, and they are able to also, the other side of the coin if you dont take their money and you dont work with them, they are actually able to effectively destroy any startup that gets in their way. Please donate and support the campaign. If you cant donate, which many people cant in the current economic climate, please just promote the website, promote the donation link, promote the streams, and let people know this exists that this movement exists. Let them know why its important and ask them to back this campaign.

Because if we can get some successful suits going against these guys, we can really make them think twice and have some serious impact, maybe even set some really important legal precedents to fight back against these networks of agents who have been destabilizing our civil society across the Western world, but I mean, with a hundred partner agencies across most of the world. They have the capacity to commit these crimes against citizens around most of this planet and as Ive said in previous articles, thats not okay with me, and thats why Ive dedicated my life to fighting back against them. Because I feel that we have to do it, we have to do it. We cant just get to the point where this total global surveillance state that we live in is able to actively destroy anybody who challenges it. We must stand up against it and we must do it together.

We are strong together. With hundreds of us and thousands of us working together, we are much stronger. Hi everybody, and welcome to my channel, my name is Suzie Dawson.

Im an activist, a journalist and the current president of the Internet Party of New Zealand. Thank you so much for being here tonight. This is Episode 4 of Opening the Five Eyes, Exposing the Spies, which is a live campaign fundraising event for the hash 1vs5i campaign.

That campaign is the result of Many years of me attempting to try to gain visibility and spread the word about abuses by intelligence agencies against activists, journalists and regular citizens around the world. And In this campaign, I now am trying to raise funds for my newlyacquired awesome human rights legal team to sue the intelligence agencies who persecuted me for my activism and for my journalism and to try and bring a halt to the illegal activities that they have been engaged in. You can find . hello to everybody . I can see you in chat saying hi to me You can find out more information about this campaign at 1vs5i.com 1vs5i.com I would really, really appreciate people either donating to the campaign to fund my quest for justice or to sharing the donate link to as many people as you can that link is 1vs5i.comdonate 1vs5i.comdonate Okey dokey. Last week I put together a little Twitter poll asking you what content you wanted me to cover and you said you wanted to talk about the ways that the intelligence agencies subvert all the different sectors of society.

So thats the program that we did last Sunday night. The second favorite option was, Understanding World War Three, and so that is what were going to look into tonight. First, I just want to have a little chat with you guys about what has been going on with me. If you saw my Twitter timeline tonight you would have seen that I nearly didnt do this stream tonight.

In fact for most of today, I was thinking to myself I cant stream and I cant stand the idea of being on camera, and doing this. It wasnt because I was worried about the content or the campaign. I am really blessed and grateful that I even have the opportunity to run this campaign and to have a chance at obtaining some kind of justice, but I was overwhelmed for a lot of personal reasons, some of which have decided that Im going to share with you tonight.

So for . There has been a lot going on for me. So this week Nicky Hager who is a very famous New Zealand investigative journalist, who has written some seminal books about the intelligence agencies, and who has himself being targeted by the same intelligence agencies who have targeted me, managed to get into the media this week official findings that the New Zealand spy agencies had spied on him. Every time there is a major development in my home country that relates to this this type of targeting against people for reasons that I dont understand entirely I dont actually feel triumphant about it.

I feel really upset about it and I get really angry, and I get quite miserable actually, as you can now see as Im practically crying on stream. I get really upset and miserable because it brings back everything that I have been through, and that my children and that my family have been through. People are complaining that weve been cut off.

Can you please confirm to me or at least say its back now? Okay, Ill just try and repeat what I was saying. I was just saying that there was some big developments in New Zealand this week regarding revelations of illegal spying by the agencies on a major New Zealand journalist, Nicky Hager. Nickys a really good guy.

I actually know his sister pretty well. His work is extremely important. But instead of being triumphant or feeling victorious or vindicated by these revelations, I actually just got really upset by them. For several reasons, firstly because it brings back every single thing that Ive gone through and also the impacts on the people around me and my kids and my family, but also because I feel a really deep sense of injustice particularly because of the way that the media treated me in New Zealand, and because of . theres just a lot of unresolved stuff and particularly actually in relation to Nicky. I have no ill feeling for Nicky, to the contrary I feel great admiration for him and Im very happy that hes able to achieve redress, and hes able to get really highlevel support, and that people understand the dangers that he faced and the things that he goes through.

But one of the big criticisms of me that Ive had particularly from media and about my situation in my case, is they compare me to Nicky. They say oh well Nicky is targeted and he doesnt have, he didnt have to leave these New Zealand, or you know, how come Nicki is able to be in New Zealand and youve had to leave New Zealand. And on one hand, its quite a compliment to me that I would even be considered in the same light as Nicky Hager, but on the other hand our situations are completely fundamentally different. And this is something that people whod judge my decisions to leave New Zealand seem to fail completely to understand. When Nicky was being targeted by the intelligence agencies, he had a thirtyyear long track record of internationally awarded journalism.

Every single person in the country of New Zealand knows him and who he is and what he does and the risks that he faces. He has a ginormous international support network at the highest levels of journalism and politics. When I was targeted in New Zealand, I had none of that.

I was not an established journalist, I did not have major political support. I did not have an international network of people willing to advocate for me. There was no public understanding of who I was or what my work was or why I would be targeted. None whatsoever, because I had actually operated in my activism I stayed anonymous, I stayed off camera and I did everything behind the scenes. So there I had no public support whatsoever, I had no media support whatsoever.

My situation couldnt have been any more dramatically different than Nicky Hagers situation. And yet Im constantly judged in the same light or the same league as Nicky Hager, which is really unfair. When I was targeted in New Zealand, I was a single mother, a single mother with two kids living in the suburbs. I had nobody willing to stand up for me, or to advocate for me or to protect me.

I had only my fellow media team members who also being targeted and who had no resources and no ability to protect me. The police openly told me to my face that I would continue to be targeted and that . their exact words were so long as youre an activist this will keep happening to you. So I couldnt do anything about it whatsoever. I was like a sitting duck and nobody nobody would protect me.

Not politicians, not media, not the police, no state agencies. I had no ability to maintain safety for myself or for my children. So every time that another big revelation comes out in New Zealand that does vindicate me such as the State Services Commission report that came out in 2018, and it confirmed that the exact same companies which I had been saying were doing this, since Ive been saying, since 2012, six years before it was confirmed Ive been saying exactly whos doing it, what theyre doing, who theyre doing it to. When that report came out I should have been happy I should have been like, thank God now everybody knows that what I was saying was true. I wasnt some crazy crackpot making the shit up.

I was telling the truth all along. That to be honest, I didnt really feel vindicated. I felt miserable. I felt upset and miserable. And I put a public statement out actually on that day that the report was released.

And you can tell how angry I am when you read that statement. I was just so angry at what I perceived was the total abandonment of me by anybody who could have actually helped me when I was in New Zealand. So leaving New Zealand for me was it was like, stay and die quietly, or leave and have a chance at continuing my work and telling people what was going on. And so thats the option I chose. So It hurts quite frankly.

It hurts be judged against people who have completely different situations and scenarios to me, and to have my decisions, which I felt like I had no other decision I possibly could make at the time . to have those decisions judged against their actions of people who have the types of visibility and protection and resources and support that I never ever ever had when I was in New Zealand. so thats the first thing thats bugging me, but then the second thing thats really hurting me too is every single day that Im in exile, I see firsthand the impacts of that exile upon my kids and my family, but primarily my kids, and Ive chosen tonight to actually start to talk about this. And for me, its a humongous risk. For me to talk about the things that upset me and the things that Im going through is an absolutely humongous risk. Its a risk for multiple reasons first of all, because I inevitably am blamed for whats been done to me despite the fact that Im not the person who did it.

And its a risk because the people who continue to persecute me use anything that I say or anything that I disclose, to continue to persecute me and continue to hurt me and for me thats always been a really doubleedged sword as to whether or not I talk about my kids and so generally other than saying that I have children, Ive said basically nothing about them. But the impacts on my parenting of the children when I was in New Zealand being targeting being targeted Wwre absolutely devastating. And the impacts on my ability to parent in exile are similarly devastating. The invasion of privacy is next level.

I remember in New Zealand knowing, knowing that every word I said in my home was being recorded and my daughter asking me about to tell her about the birds and the bees, and me having to sit there and try and explain to my child the facts of life and particularly the facts of being a girl and becoming a woman knowing that every word I said was being scrutinized by security agencies that had it in for me, and were trying to destroy me. It . I feel like they robbed me and my children of some of the most precious moments and precious years of our life and things that normal parents can just take for granted, I could never take for granted. And I had to constantly make decisions relating to my children . Wow, Im sorry I didnt know upsetting this would be to talk about.

I had to constantly make decisions relating to my children in the realistic and practical context of us being targeted by the state. For example, I lived in constant fear. One of the things my daughter complained about me is, she said Mum, youre 0:.779, 0:.779 hypervigilant. And shes talking about not about hypervigilant about being targeted but hypervigilant in terms of I would live in fear that my kids would be jumping off the trampoline or whatever, would hurt themselves and would end up having to go to hospital for whatever reason and that it would be used as a pretext to take my children away from me to punish me for my activism and journalism, because there are countless other cases where this has been done to activists and journalists who are single parents, where they come at you through your kids.

Thats all it comes down to. They come at you through children, they have no qualms about doing that. So my kids couldnt just play like normal kids like when I was a kid growing up.

I broke my wrist. I broke my arm. I broke my leg.

It didnt matter. My parents went and took me in the hospital to get a cast on it. Noone cared. But as a single mother whos a targeted activist and journalist, I Would literally be running around after my kids like, watch that step! careful of this! careful of that! constantly on at them, be careful! Be safe!

Be careful! Be safe! To a ridiculous degree because I . something as simple as my kids having an accident and breaking their arm could be used as a pretext to destroy our domestic life and destroy our life together and potentially even separate us. Thats the type of pressure that I, and subsequently they, by proxy had to live under as targets. Going into exile is, here are a whole other layers to that.

There is the obvious isolation. Sorry There is incredible isolation. Theres incredible isolation that we faced, because we lost we lost our family, access to our family, we lost all of our friends. We lost our entire support network in terms of social support network, and our personal community. My kids lost their friends and their belongings which still to this day sit in storage in New Zealand because I dont know even whether Ill gain temporary residency here and be able to move them, move their stuff to them.

They lost their home they grew up in, they lost the ability to learn and to speak their native language like every other child in New Zealand does. They lost the carefree and the carefree and attentive parent that I was to them when it was just us in New Zealand. Um, I used to be fun, and have fun with them in ways that I had no ability to do since because I am constantly needfocused. I have to live in a way thats needfocused.

I have to make sure that we still have a place to live in, still have a country to live in, still have an apartment to live in, and make sure that we have food, make sure we have clothes, make sure that we have all of the necessities, and to do so without anyone around me to facilitate any of that happening. And that means Im not funmum, Im stressedmum almost all the time, and that has been horrendous. And then you add on to that the language barrier and the fact that none of us spoke language, and then you add on to that the fact that Im constantly probed and constantly, and I dont mean probed by Russians or locals Im not Ive had no interference at all from Russians, but I am constantly probed by Intel agents in all of the spaces in which I try to communicate or operate, relentlessly, they want information.

However, they can get it. They want to insert people in my life and get people close to me. um Ive had to cope with that physically in the real world in New Zealand But I have to cope with it in digital spaces all of the time. And so I, really, my way of coping with isolation was to overwork. And so in 2017 Internet party campaign and 2018 unity4J I worked every second and every moment that I wasnt with the kids day and night, I did 20 hours days every day. I worked so hard that I would look out the window and the light would burn my eyes.

Looking at daylight would burn my eyes and blind me. That was how I coped with with the situation, was just to work and work and work. And then of course my body started to give out on me, because nobody can work twenty hour days seven days a week forever and ever. So that is why I sit down from Unity4J and that is why I took a bit of a break at the beginning of this year, and my one accomplishment in recent times is that I have actually hauled my ass back to the gym and started getting in physical shape again, and started trying to improve my health by necessity. Because I cant help anyone let alone my kids if I dont do that, if I dont make that efforet and do that.

So the reason Im talking about these things tonight Is because Ive been feeling so heartbroken and so vulnerable and I have really nobody to talk about this stuff with. And I remembered, I remembered something. So behind the scenes I also used to never really talk in a personal context about Julian or WikiLeaks or anything else, but Im starting to change my mind on some of this stuff.

So I can tell you that behind the scenes, I was pretty much campaigninmg for years for Julian Assange to talk more in the public realm about what he was suffering through, what he was going through, physically and mentally and emotionally. I thought that it was really important for people to understand how dire his situation was, because recently youve heard about this, you know since hes been silenced, youve heard a lot about it, but in the previous years Julian had really presented himself Im not not even sure deliberately, but he presented himself as being pretty invulnerable, like a Superman, and people looked at him like a superhero, and they didnt understand the reality of what he was suffering through every single day. Nobody really understood that. Because the decline and his health isnt something that has just happened since the hideous Moreno government, its been going on for the entire decade.

Julian was suffering in 2010. He was suffering in 2011. He was suffering in 2012. He was suffering in 2013.

But nobody really understood the ways in which he was suffering. So after I made the suggestion a number of times, Julian did actually release his medical records. And that was a significant moment and it was a very Julian way to address the issue because he provided documents, you know documented facts from accredited professionals to disclose information about himself that could then be referenced by journalists etcetera etcetera etcetera. It was definitely a Julian way to handle it and it was a good way to handle it. But Julian like many of our men and I would say Ed also Yeah, youre one of the people who is also guilty of this.

I mean I dont like to be vulnerable and particularly when they know that their adversaries are the highest level adversaries in the world, who will exploit any weakness and who will exploit any vulnerability. They dont like to show vulnerability. Our men dont like to show vulnerability and they like to project strength and they like to attract people to themselves through invulnerability and strength and being powerful. Um, a lot of people tell me all the time that Im really strong And it puzzles me Because I dont feel strong. I havent really felt strong through any of this Ive kind of just been in a constant state of having to attempt to deal with whats happening to me in real time as its happening.

Ive never felt particularly strong, but people constantly tell me I am strong and I think its because they confuse the strength of my convictions with some type of personal invulnerability or super power. And Im telling you Im definitely not invulnerable and I definitely dont have some superpower. And Im also hyperaware that those who target us know full well how miserable we are sometimes. How much stress were going through, how hideous what were going through is. They know that because they spy on us.

They were, as we now know, they were spying on Julian every second of every day in every room including the bathroom and broadcasting it live to Langley, Virginia to CIA headquarters. So they knew how Julian was suffering. They watch, they watch and study the effects on us targets of what they do to us. We are like Lab Rats to them.

They will tailor their targeting of other people based on the impacts that they gauge from monitoring the effects of what theyve done to us. So what use is it for us to hide from the people who do love us and do support us and to care about us? What use is it to hide our suffering and what were going through? I think its not very much use at all.

And so thats why Ive been . thats what brought me to the decision to try and tell you a little bit. I mean, its just been such a tiny window that I gave you tonight, a Little bit of what we go through. If youve ever had someone really highly manipulative in your life who lies to you for an extended period of time and lies to you about fundamental things which relate to why you even chose to engage in any type of relationship with them in the first place, youll understand that when you inevitably find out the truth, which always do, that you feel like they stole a piece of your life from you because if they told you the truth Up front, you would have made different decisions. Thats how I feel about this entire process of being targeted and its how I feel about my children and my family as well. I feel like years of our lives were stolen, have been stolen and arguably still are being stolen.

Had they not done to us what they did, I wouldnt never even become an investigative journalist, I would never have become any type of expert in the insane and disgusting things that they do to us every day. They created me in that sense. They created my investigative journalist, and they created my activism, by waking me up to the evils that they do. Okay. Some person . of the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of chat messages that I can see scrolling on my screen right now . some person just said Assange has been lying to us about 911.

Maybe now I can stop crying because instead of feeling sorry for myself I can go into defense mode. And defense mode . if theres one thing I actually really love its defending good people. I love standing up for and if any good people so lets just cover this off really quickly. Julian Assange has published more information about 911 than almost anybody on this planet.

You can read that information for yourself . excuse me . you can read this information for yourself on WikiLeaks. He published the 911 pager transcripts. That means every single emergency alert pager response on 911 is published on Wikileaks. That means you can go and read the real time inside story of what was going on and on on Wikileaks. Basically, nobody ever talks about this, but its there.

There is a not sure other took my head but theres probably tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of messages from first responders on 911 published on Wikileaks and if thats not good enough for you then just type 911 into WikiLeaks and there is unbelievable amounts of content from State Department cables from diplomatic documents about 911. Now someones saying have I heard what you said answering questions about 911? Yeah I have Ive seen the article and Ive read the the quote. Now the article on the quote are two different things you will notice if you go and watch them. For example the Irish Examiner I believe it was off the top of my head, or it definitely was an Irish paper, took . pulled one sentence that Julian Assange said out and it has been used for evermore as this pretext of: Julian doesnt believe in 911 truth blah blah blah.

What he said was that he didnt want, he was asked about 911 which in itself . is a question every activist is asked because its a loaded question . because you get screwed no matter how you answer if Julian says yes, Im on board with 911 truth . then every journalist says Julian Assange is a 911 conspiracy theorist and if Julian says no, Im on board with the official story, then the whole 911 truth movement and all the activists get told Julian Assange believes the official story about 911. So no matter which way he answered that question. He was going to be screwed by the answer.

Now what he actually said if you go watch the article of their interview, is he said we have published 10 million documents on WikiLeaks which of verified facts So instead of asking me about something which we dont yet know one way or the other with a hundred percent documented fact, please focus on the documented facts we do have, i.e. war crimes and God knows what else is in there is in WikiLeaks files, please can we keep the focus on that? Can we keep the focus on what weve actually published. Now, thats a perfectly reasonable answer he wasnt taking a position one way or the other. He wasnt saying 911 official story is correct and he wasnt saying, you know, Israel burned down the towers or or whatever the hell else. So, I do not Its just being used as a smear ever since.

I had the same thing happened to me. I mean I was asked in an interview. Every activist is asked this in an interview. I was asked in an interview What do you think about 911?

And I said it is pretty damn clear to me that there is a lot of holes in the official narrative and a lot of questions that need to be answered and sure enough, major New Zealand media platform say Suzie is a 911 conspiracy theorist blah blah blah blah. So these questions are just set up as a pretext to divide and conquer. They are trying to divide the support base. So every time I hear Assange and 911 I ask myself this person whos so interested in what Assange thinks about 911 have they actually typed 911 into WikiLeaks?

Have they actually read the thousands of source documents about 911 on WikiLeaks? If they havent then why is it that theyre more concerned about what Assange thinks about 911 than they are about finding out what documented truth is available on WikiLeaks about 911. And thank you Im going to use that as a segue to stop talking about the emotional stuff and to move into the actual content of tonights program.

Thank you for bearing with me through that all of that. So Understanding World War Three is an article that I wrote in 2016. I wrote it after a lot of study and research on the topic. One of the most interesting factors I think about this article and Ill just quickly show it to you here. Its on contraspin.co.nz is the date that I published it on.

I published it on October 17th 2016. So why that date is so interesting is that while pretty much the entire Western media was in fullblown 2016 election Trump versus Clinton Coke versus Pepsi mode, I wasnt writing about Coke versus Pepsi Trump versus Clinton. I was writing about the ongoing World War Three because it was patently obvious to me that World War Three is not only happening, but its been happening for a long time, and that the only missing piece to that is for the governments, particularly Western governments, but the major governments around the world to acknowledge That World War Three is happening to actually declare the war. So what Im going to do with you tonight is, and just to take this back to the Five Eyes, in previous episodes of this show you saw me talk about the role of the intelligence agencies in the kill chain behind the dropping of every single bomb. And I made the argument that to be antiwar you must be anti intelligence agencies because the intelligence agencies are both remotely through their networks, but also physically on the ground in war zones supporting and being an inherent part of the process by which every bomb is dropped.

In that vein, we know that the intelligence agencies are also the major fiscal benefactor, financial benefactor of war. So when there is armed conflict the budgets go up. They get more money. They get more leeway and they get more leverage. They get greater resource and ability to do whatever the hell they want to do.

We also talked . Yeah someones asking what is it? Its on contraspin.co.nz and it is called Understanding World War Three. So what Im going to do is Im going to read through the article for you, but Im also going to ad lib. So Im not just going to read straight off the page but Im actually going to discuss the concepts in it, and Im going to make this case and explain to you why I believe that World War Three is already underway. the other preface that I would just put before I start going through the article with you is that in it I study the lead up, the period of time prior to the Declaration of World War Two, and then I compare those events directly to what has been happening in this lead up to and beginning of World War Three.

I want to be really clear that I guess I am not at all someone who likes this callous tossing about of the terms Nazi, Nazis, fascist, fascism, etc etc. I think its irresponsible the way that some people have engaged in it and done it and I hate that people get branded with it just because they have some kind of difference of opinion or political opinion or ideology or whatever else. I think its um, I think its another tool of divide and conquer.

I think accusations of white supremacy get used as a tool of divide and conquer. Thats not to say there arent actual white supremacists on this planet. There absolutely are ideological white supremacists, but they are nowhere near as prevalent as claimed by certain quarters. And I would also like to point out that there is a long history of intelligence agencies. someone just said its like crying wolf. thats exactly right. it is like crying wolf. There is also a long documented history of intelligence agencies using accusations of Nazism or white supremacy to divide and conquer activist group movements.

So thats another thing to be aware of is that its like its a tool for divisiveness. That said, there were actual Nazis on this planet and they did absolutely provoke a World War and were going to look at some of the similarities in the geopolitics and and the engagements that led up to that declaration of World War Two by comparison to whats happening now. So we will get started my friends, and by the way, if I run out of voice, which is entirely possible then I will take a three minute break and have a drink and try and get it back and continue on with you. And then once we get through the article do a little questionanswer or a QampampA session with you.

And just to give you a headsup I know there are people who want, are holding out for the surveillance teachin. Which I promise, where were going to go through every single method of surveillance that Im aware of. Public surveillance, physical surveillance, digital surveillance, all the different types of surveillance. Well spend two or three hours just mapping out a big picture of all of the difference methods of surveillance.

Well probably do that next Sunday night, and then I think were going to have a very special guest who I wont name yet, in the following week, in two weeks time, and were going to study the JTRIG files, which is the Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group from GCHQ, which is the UK eye of the Five Eyes, which was revealed in the Snowden files and the JTRIG documents are extremely important because they are all about the specific targeting methods of the Five Eyes intelligence agencies as pertains to people they consider to be threats, primarily in an online environment. So its all about online digital infiltration of groups and networks, its specifically about how to smear a target, how to destroy a life, through online means. And those documents are all based on . principles of psychology as I should say and are highly technical, so I am bringing in an expert to decipher some of the lingo for us, and then some activists to talk about the ways in which those principles have been used to target them and to destabilize their lives and to harm them in real ways in the real world. So thats whats the program for the next two weeks. Okay without any further ado.

Actually, Ill do it the other way around. Im going to have a quick drink now and Ill be back in two minutes and we will work our way through understanding World War Three. All my awesome mods, if you could circulate the link to the article, that would be really cool and then people can go through the material at the same time as we discuss it.

Be right back. no sound . and that is because of what is happening in Ecuador at the moment. So the Ecuadorian people are resisting Lenen Morenos government who has been imposing the IMF austerity and privatization agenda which has already affected so many countries around the world, including in fact, very few people realize this, that including in fact my own home country of New Zealand. Also known as neoliberal economics, the privatization agenda means that from roughly the end of the 80s through until the current day New Zealand lost ownership of all of its critical infrastructure, and most of, nearly all of its state assets. So that means we dont own our railways we dont own our telecommunications companies anymore. We dont own our power companies.

We dont own . many, many of our state assets were privatized and sold off, and the austerity agenda means cuts to public services. So the shutting of many organizations that supported the public and provided critical social services. And this is an agenda that was rolled out really across lets say all of the Western world and you see it in Britain. You see it in, definitely see it in America.

It was also coupled with trade agreements which spelled the death of local manufacturing and the importation of cheap and defective goods from third world countries where obviously child labor and even slavery were being practiced. And ntil very recently until just a couple of years ago, Ecuador was free of the IMF and free of the military industrial complex of the Western nations. But unfortunately with the election of Lenin Moreno who was elected on a leftist agenda and was supposed to preserve the sovereignty of Ecuador, got straight into bed with some really dark rightwing forces in Ecuador, and began the economic destabilization of the country. So the protesters who have been Id say nearly by the millions if not by the millions over the last couple of days, protesting in Quito and in other cities in Ecuador, have been met with not only riot police and all of the riot ordinance, the tear gas and the everything else, the socalled lesslethal weapons, which is all too lethal when theyre fired on you at short range, they also have had the military unleashed on them. So there have been actual tanks and soldiers firing live rounds killing protesters in Ecuador, and sadly, but unsurprisingly the Western media have been completely silent about that, or have just made it out like its some fringe protests about fuel prices and failed to mention that people are getting shot in the head and killed by the military in Ecuador.

If you have a look on my timeline on Twitter Suzi3d and you scroll back over the last few days, Ive been constantly sharing live article from people on the ground showing the onesided war that is being inflicted by the Ecuadorian military onto its own citizens in Ecuador. Now in these types of situations it is, theres a long history of intelligence agencies and particularly, the CIA getting involved or being involved from the outset, and generally the pattern that is followed is that they will pump weapons and money, sometimes to both sides. The Syrian conflict originally started out with genuine prodemocratic antiSyrian government protests in 2011 and early 2012. Guns and money were poured into . and infiltrating mercenaries . were poured into their conflict and a civilI dont even like calling it a civil war actually because of the extent of the foreign influence that really engineered that situationbut essentially a civil war. And the devastation thats been wreaked in Syria across this decade had its provenance in that.

Now my concern is that while the protesters currently dont have arms and arent shooting back, that Ecuador looks to me like it could be set up to become a similar scenario and it also looks like it could eventually become a proxy war. And were going to talk a lot about proxy wars shortly as we look into this article. So, Im going to screen share and were going to get started. Okay, here we go Understanding World War Three, October 17th, 2016. A critical look at history reveals that World War Two started in 1933 and not 1939 and World War Three, if it is ever declared, also wont have started at the declaration point of the war it will have started long before, as youll see in the analysis in this article.

With the invocation of a state of war in the granting of war powers to the head of state, Nazi Germany was emboldened to begin the rampage of propagandafuelled totalitarianism and ultimately invasion, mass murder and assimilation. So this granting of war powers and the invocation of a state of war is exactly what we saw post 911 when Bush declared the Global War on Terror and then extended the AUMF, which well get into a little bit further along as well, to enable them to wage this war on terror. The official World War Two commencement date of first September 1939, marks the day that England and France declared war and began openly militarily opposing Germanys aggressive and expansionist agenda. It is the date that officials were finally allowed to confirm to the public who was subsequently engaged and drafted to support it, that there was in fact a World War going on.

And this is my entire point here is that just because the officials finally declare war doesnt mean that the war hasnt already been happening. But with a slew of countries already having been breached by invading armies World War Two had begun well prior to the public acknowledgment of it. Similarly World War Three will not be determined by the history books to have officially begun until a country or a coalition of countries formally stand to oppose andor declare war against the now long campaign of invasion, subversion and international destabilization perpetrated by the United States and their allies. But nonetheless even in the absence of such proclamations World War Three is well underway. That fact is only now filtering through to the awareness of the global public.

My analysis of the 1933 to 1939 period in Germanys history has grave implications. The diplomatic and military conduct of Nazi Germany eerily mirrors that of the USA hereafter colloquially described as the US Empire, in the period 2001 to 2016. The events leading up to World War Two and World War Three are scarily similar. And then I talked about Naomi Kleins ten steps to fascism.

Being: Otherization the creation of an enemy operating gulags such as Guantanamo Bay Employing paramilitary outsourced military or the privatization of military immunized thuggery which is Blackwater, etcera Now, we know the immunized part here refers to Donald Rumsfelds total force doctrine which is where he immunized private military companies from being able to be prosecuted for any wrongdoing. He extended the immunization that the US Army and US Armed Forces have to the private sector, which is obviously incredibly problematic. The employment of domestic surveillance, which would be like NSA and facial recognition systems, etc All the types of things that Snowden and others have talked about. Arbitrary detention.

Which would be like TSA like arbitrary detention. How you can be detained at the border eight hours, no legal representation, no charges against you, etcetera etcetera, The subversion of media which was a huge factor in how the Nazis were able to do what they were doing domestically and get away with it. The abuse of the definition in terms of espionage and treason. Well, Jesus weve seen that havent we? John Kiriaku being charged with espionage for revealing the fact that crimes against humanity were being perpetrated by the CIA.

And legislative suspension of the rule of law, which is pretty much exactly what NDAA has been about each year for most of this decade, being the National Defense Authorization Act in America. But this article wioll go beyond that to look not just at the general trends and conditions, but to directly compare the chronology of the specific acts of Nazi Germany with those of the modernday US Empire in the context of World War Two and the now well underway World War Three. . 1:.940, 1:.049 The Naked Agenda: The most nefarious of acts are not the dastardly deeds waged covertly in secret ut those executed publicly in plain sight and then employed on a massive scale. So its the things that they actually tell us about and even brag about, that are even more concerning than what is happening in secret, because there is plenty that they openly brag about that is highly problematic and thats a massive understatement.

Hitler from the documentary of World War Two GermanRoad to War: Hitler never made a secret of his aims. He committed them to print and repeated them in countless speeches. He triumphed because the world was blind to the signals he constantly raised. Time and time again Hitler could have been stopped by his fellow Germans first and by foreign leaders later. Not until 1939 did the Allied leaders move to contain him and by then it was too late to block his road to war.

Time and time again over the last 15 years, the Empire has declared that it is at war. This isnt something theyve hidden theyve said we are at war. This is a war. the world is a battlefield. This is a global war on terror.

They proclaimed that there would be multiple theaters of operation. That was exactly the words they used. And that the enemies were numerous and would be hunted wherever they resided and roamed. Remember George W Bush: wherever you are on this planet.

We will find you. We will hunt you down. There will be no borders in this war.

I mean somehow we didnt take it seriously enough. Numb to the overblown rhetoric of Western leaders because they are absolutely overblown in their speech, it never quite sunk in to the global public that America declaring a state of emergency invoking war powers, dramatically expanding military capabilities and financing, employing legions of mercenaries, invading a string of foreign nations upending elected governments, occupying foreign lands and incurring civilian casualties into the millions, creating a massive refugee crisis, and incessantly lying about their motives for it, was in fact them instigating a third World War. Because when you look at everything that they did in totality, in its totality. Is that not a war?

I mean they told us this is a war. Warning signs and subversion of constitutions and democratic principles as a common thread among all tyrants dictators and military regimes, and were absolutely seeing that in Ecuador right now. When a permanent state of emergency, which Moreno has just declared a state of emergency, was declared in Germany and the Enabling Act of 1933 passed, the stage was set for unending war.

So in 1933 the legislative groundwork was already in place for World War Two. But the public didnt know it as World War Two until 1939, remember. While different in letter and inferior in scope to the far more complex USA Patriot Act of 2003 the ultimate aims were similar: to enhance the powers of the Nazi government to engage in internecine warfare on a whim, internecine in terms of Europe. Likewise according to Wikipedia probably the worst source ever, but well still cite it for this particular case.

In the wake of the September 11th 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States the Bush Administration asserted both of right and the intention to wage preemptive war or preventive war. This became the basis for the Bush Doctrine. So those were exactly the premises of the Nazis War Powers Act were to assert a right to wage preemptive war.

The Nazis soon used their powers to justify the execution and imprisonment of their own people. Now just bear in mind. We think oh, we dont execute, you know executing people, well, this isnt just like jailing them and putting them on death row. This is like drone executions of American citizens on foreign soil, extrajudicially, without them ever being arrested or charged or going to a court process. And this is manifest in the recent conduct of the Empire also.

2012s National Defense Authorization Act famously included provisions for the indefinite detention without trial of American citizens and US citizens have become targets of extrajudicial killings by their own government. The stated justification? George Bushs 2001 Authorization To Use Military Force, known as the AUMF. On 14 September 2001 Congress declared that the AUMF was intended to constitute specific statutory authorization within the meaning of section 5B of the War Powers Resolution of 1973. And in it, and this is a quote, an initial draft of Senate joint resolution 23 included language granting the power to deter and preempt any future acts of terrorism or aggression against the United States.

Members were concerned that this would provide a blank check to go anywhere anytime, against anyone the Bush Administration or any subsequent Administration deemed capable of carrying out an attack and the language was removed. Constitutional law specialist Professor Bruce Ackerman of Yale Law School has said the Obamas administration use of the AUMF has so far overstepped the authorized powers of the final enacted version of the bill as to more closely resemble the capabilities named in the draft text rejected by Congress. So now you have a presidential administration Acting on law, that is not law. This is definitive proof that laws passed to expand the power of the executive are carried over to subsequent Administrations and then employed as justifications and expanded upon to devastating effect.

So, Obama becomes but Bush did it and Trump becomes but Obama did it and so on and so forth through administration after administration. Wikipedia states the critics of theand for those who saying other Trump didnt do it, Trump has like not gotten us into another warone of the first things that Trump did when he got into office was to declare that the CIA could make its own decisions around the extrajudicial drone assassination program, And if you go back and read the original things he decided that he Trump didnt want anything to do with it, he didnt want to have KillList Tuesday like Obama had, and sign off on the drone killings. But he was actually fine for the CIA just to handle ? themselves So this is something thats very seldom acknowledged about Trump, is that he actually from the outset of the administration increased the scope of powers of the CIA in particular in relation to foreign drone programs, which are executed from US soil I might add. Wikipedia states that critics of the Bush Doctrine were suspicious of the increasing willingness of the United States to use military force unilaterally.

Robert W Tucker and David C Hendrickson argued that it reflects a turn away from international war and marks the end of American legitimacy in foreign affairs. Both Nazi Germany and the US Empire shared the trait of justifying their noncompliance with international law and treaties by manufactured legal caveat to enable the abdication of their democratic responsibilities. And just taking this back to the Five Eyes as well. This is something that we see with the Five Eyes routinely, which is that the string of bills and acts and legislation that have been passed to expand the resources and powers of the intelligence agencies throughout this decade in particular, are in total violation of certainly international law, Universal Declaration of Human Rights etc. But also to our own domestic Bill of Rights.

So their laws are violating other laws and they dont care at all in the slightest. Germany claimed that international treaties were not adhered to by their political adversaries and therefore it need not uphold or be bound by them. Now, where have we heard that before? The US has completely abandoned international law in recent if not Id say the last 20 years in particular, and also this goes back to my earlier point in the article, about what they do openly is actually almost scarier than what they do in secret, because they have made no secret of pulling support, refusing participation in international tribunals, refusing to respect international law, refusing to respect decisions by international bodies to which theyre signatories, and this is this is done overtly and openly. Its not at all something that they make a secret out of.

The same argument has been made by Western powers about everything from the Kyoto Protocol to torture. Another similarity is the selfrighteous contempt for established covenants covering the military contact of Nations. In 2002 the United States openly stated it would not abide by the Geneva Conventions on the treatment of prisoners of war.

Likewise Nazi Germanys failure to abide by the 1929 conventions have been thoroughly documented. So once again, theyre just openly refusing to abide by fundamental pieces of international law like the Geneva Convention. Peace is an endlessly abused idealistic concept. we could probably skip this or else its going to take too long. So this entire section is about how war gets dressed up as peace by these diplomats and politicians who are advocating war. They always do it in the name of peace and Obama was so into Hitlers speeches.

He would declare hes going to do all this evil shit and hed say that hes doing it in the name of peace. Likewise Obama did the same thing in 2009. President Obama famously droned on for over 30 minutes about peace in his acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize. This despite his administration having dramatically advanced the prevalence and use of obscene hightech methods of achieving extrajudicial killings, an extension he went further than that which was employed in George W Bushes hegemonic and interventionist foreign policy. Conquest in stages is another similarity between the leadup to World War Two and the ongoing World War Three.

The obsession with strategic planning reassures these guys of their longevity yet their thirst for victory and conquest is never sated. Remember George W Bush standing on that destroyer and saying mission accomplished and then how long was it before they were into the next country and the next country in the next country? War is an addiction for them. Once the cogs of war are greased and in motion. they become trapped in a cycle of their own inertia. Inevitably the velocity they generate speeds them towards their undoing.

They havent accomplished any mission other than perpetual war. Nazi Germanys trail of subjugation forged across Central Europe back to back unopposed and largely bloodless successes bolstered its aspirations to impose dominion over the greater Western European continent. The further that aim progressed the more murderous the campaign.

Ultimately, this brought them to the doorstep of the seat of power in the USSR as well as into the North Atlantic maritime channel to the British Isles. Photographs of Hitlers commands show him and his generals poring over a map reminiscent of a plussize replica of the boardgame Risk. Risk is a great analogy for how war planners see war. To them it is not the stark reality of their lawlessness, the blood and bone, murder and rape, mass displacement.

It is a map upon which is determined the geographical control, monopolization, distribution and ownership of resources. This also really applies to the intelligence agencies. The vast majority of the employees of the intelligence agencies arent out there involved in killings or human intelligence operations or whatever else. The vast majority of them are sitting in offices with PowerPoint presentations. They are having corporate meetings.

They are working on fudging budgets or writing bullshit reports for Congress. They are involved in spying on or monitoring targets from afar. They are not in there with a sword on horseback, leading the charge on the front lines. You know, they love to think that theyare in fact they love to employ analogies to suggest that they are some digital version of a frontline warrior. To make them feel like they they really have their hands dirty and are at the coalface.

But theyre not. They have total and utter detachment from the havoc that they wreak and then they are also voyeurs. So I mean you see what Im thinking about Manning talking about people sitting around and watching articles like what became the WikiLeaks Collateral Murder article.

Like its a sport, like its a article game, like its a form of entertainment. One of the things that made me sick about this whole Turkey and Kurd situation and Syria at the moment. is knowing that at the National Geospatial Agency, there will be intelligence operatives who are literally watching the Turkish incursion into Syria on livestream the way that we watch live streams on YouTube, right. But theyre doing it from their spy satellites and everything else and they will literally sit there and watch the mortars and the bombs and the tank movements and people being shot and people being killed and people being raped and towns being burned to the ground.

They will sit there and watch it like its a reality TV show and that detachment is really, really, really dangerous. But back to that article. I wont go through the General Wesley Clark stuff because Im pretty sure that everybody knows about that.

Which was, that there was a plan to invade a string of countries and sure enough thats come to fruition with the exception of Iran, which is now the the final pillar left standing that they had intended to go after all along since 911. The plan is not about democracy or security or fighting terrorism. The plan is about control, just like Nazi Germany, which also wasnt about democracy, security or fighting terrorism. There was nobody invading Germany there wass nobody invading the Nazis when they started invading the whole of Europe. It was all just bullshit pretext and thats exactly what we see with US Empire.

Just like Nazi Germany and many other empires before them. They simply want to rule the world and these intelligence agencies literally admit in their own documents that they want total. they want to be able to see every square inch on the globe, they want to be able to maintain total control. Each conquest becomes a launchpad for the next, and my god if you dont see that in Syria, I dont know what you do. Where did the incursions into Syria come from where did the drugs and the money sorry the weapons and the money come from?

They came from Iraq. Iraq became the staging area for the Syrian war and if theyd been successful in Syria, undoubtedly Syria would have become a staging zone for an invasion of Iran. The invasion of Iraq allowed the United States to establish bases and to prepare itself for conflict in Syria. The invasion of Poland allowed Nazi Germany to establish bases and fortifications to prepare itself for a ground invasion of the USSR.

Nowadays Ukraine is the new Poland. Thats what Ukraine is about. Ukraine isnt about Ukraine. Ukraine isnt about just dealing a blow to Russia. Ukraine is about creating a staging area.

Creating a lilypad as the US likes to call its intermediary countries where it runs its drone operations and everything else out of. Ukraine is about creating a staging area for a theoretical invasion of Russia or a conflict with Russia. The disbandment of the invaded nations military is another theme, and remember they did that in Iraq. Just as the Iraqi army was famously and disastrously dismantled postinvasion Nazi Germany disbanded the Czech army and others. Stress factors for ethnic and religious tensions are deliberately exacerbated as target countries are purposefully divided along sectarian lines by their invaders.

Now I had friends in Iraq and they told me in no uncertain terms: there was no sectarian issues in Iraq prior to the invasion of Iraq, despite the fact that the Sunni and Shia sects do have some which they actually considered relatively minor religious differences. Relatively minor within the microcosm of Iraq pre the most recent invasion. There was no social segregation amongst the common population along religious or sectarian lines. That was deliberately exploited by the US to create that sectarian warfare, it was an absolute divide and conquer destabilization agenda.

The preconditions for civil war are maximized, and this is another thing that I worry about happening in Ecuador now, to provide further justification for ongoing occupation. So once again its about creating pretext to create bad guys and fall guys and to prevent any cohesive opposition from forming or taking hold. This invariably leads to sectarian warfare.

This tactic is simple divide and conquer both Nazi Germany and the US Empire demonstrated the effectiveness of that strategy over and over again. So another thing that enabled World War Two and that is also enabling World War Three is the inaction by the international community. In World War Two the Allied powers failed to act again and again. They did not act against Hitler when he positioned his troops in the Rhineland nor when he occupied Austria.

From JohnDClared.net, in 1936 Hitler moved his troops into the demilitarized zone claiming that the recent treaty between France and Russia threatened Germanys safety. His commanders had orders to retreat if the French army tried to stop them but this time it was France who did nothing. The League of Nations, busy with Abyssinian crisis, also did nothing. Now, the League of Nations is the precursor to the UN, so this is yet another point that Im pretty sure I get into this article, which is that each time there is a World War there is a reshuffling of the international organizations for diplomacy.

So the League of Nations was made defunct by World War Two I believe the United Nations will be made defunct by World War Three. The following table from service guy? JohnDClare.net gave us this table to explain appeasement policy. And in this table, Im going to make it bigger because its pretty important stuff, he shows the progression in terms of the dates, the years, and the areas that were invaded by Germany, and what Hitler did and what the intervention . how the international community responded. So the first invasion Britain andFrance did nothing the second evasion Britain and France did nothing the third invasion Britain and France did nothing the fourth invasion they came to terms.

The fifth invasion. They said that they would do something and then the sixth invasion they finally declared war. So at this point how many people are dead and how many countries are destabilized, and how much bloodshed has been going on, and yet no war had been declared.

And this is the fundamental point Im trying to make here about World War Three, is that weve had this series of invasions and weve had the international community sit by and basically watch it happen and weve had no declaration of war. That doesnt mean there isnt a war going on because there was a war going on here, and here and here, before anyone in the West was prepared to admit there was a war going on. Modern military campaigns of the Empire have until recent times also been largely unopposed. Modeled off the above, here is my own table of recent events. So what I did as I took this this table that this guy JohnDClare put together and rather than it being in the 30s about Nazi Germany, I created a version that is post911 and about the actions of the US Empire And again, Im going to make a little bit bigger and hope you can see it So in 2001, they invaded Afghanistan.

It was invaded by the US and Allies including the United Kingdom, and the only meaningful opposition was insurgents local insurgents. In 2003 they invaded Iraq, it was invaded by USled Coalition of the Willing as it was termed. They were opposed only by insurgents. In 2004 in Pakistan with the cooperation Pakistan government drone operations by the CIA rather than the military to avoid sovereignty issues were opposed only by insurgents in that region. In 2011 Libya was invaded, The US, UK, France, Canada and 15 smaller nations destroyed Libya, and theres something that needs to be remembered actually, that 18 countries got on board with the US and are equally culpable for the current state of nonstate of Libya the slave markets and everything else going on there.

Its actually not just the US. It was everybody else that didnt have the guts just to stand up and say no. They will also opposed only by insurgents. But then things began to turn in 2011 and Syria US backed proxy militias and other forces engage in combat. They are opposed by the Syrian government supported by Iran and as of 2015, Russia.

So this is the first signs of theyre starting to be some actual pushback against the invading Empire, just like we saw here in the World War Two version. So we saw here that finally a line was drawn. Okay, wed had four invasions beforehand. Finally a line is drawn and then theres a declaration of war.

Well in World War Three, weve got one, two, three, four invasions before a line is drawn and then in 2016 Russia the US has declared imminent cyber attacks against Russia, and Russia declared that it was prepared to defend itself. So this is at the time that I wrote this article, this is the moment that we were at. Now also in this moment, And its not covered in this article though. I definitely I could probably dig out the file somewhere in my computer. Well, so this article we saw, sorry, at this exact time in 2016 just before the presidential election there was the US military was posting photos of uniformed American soldiers standing on the border of Estonia and Russia holding up American flags.

Thousands of tanks were openly, it was openly reported, thousands of US tanks and I believe also NATO tanks were being shipped into Eastern Europe. So there wasnt a definite military buildup against Russia. Now whether it would be stupid or not to go into direct military engagement with Russia is debatable given the nuclear weapons situation, given the historical disaster their previous attempts to invade Russia have been.

But they absolutely were hyperaggressive towards Russia, and this is, to me interestingly, this is never discussed or acknowledged in the Russiagate debate, ever. None of the stuff. In the Russiagate debate America was doing nothing minding its own goddamn business and Russia came along and did this terrible cyberattack on the DNC. Sorry, cant stop myself laughing. our democratic institutions. the DNC! Okay, thats the Russiagate fairy tale, but meanwhile back in reality The US Empire had been staging provocations against Russia consistently and right up on its borders.

Okay, so notably none of the countries in which the US Empire has intervened have actually benefited from it. None of them have resulted in peace, okay. Afghanistan, no peace.

Iraq, no peace. Syria, No peace. Libya, no peace. There is no peaceful outcome from any of this. Active conflict remains in all of the above up to the time of this writing.

Were sitting here three years later active conflict still remains in all of the above, and thats not an accident. Its intentional. There is a glaringly obvious line missing from my table, that is the bottom line of the World War Two table.

The open declaration of war by a nation or nations willing to declare war in direct opposition to the activities of the Empire. So what Im saying there is that all of the preconditions of war everything that led up to World War Two has already happened in World War Three the only piece of the puzzle thats currently missing is the declaration of war. The yes, this is World War Three.

Its the only part were missing. Weve had everything else. Weve had the campaign of illegal invasions, weve had the institution of legislation to empower these activities, weve had all of the other lists of things from Naomi Kleins Ten Steps to Fasacism, the mercenaries, and the gulags like Guantanamo Bay, etc, etc.

All thats already done the only thing that is missing is for it to be acknowledged to the public by the governments that this is what theyre up to and this is what they doing. Propaganda and pretexts. Now, this is where we get into journalism media. The inception of war is always based on propaganda.

This is true for each aggressive action undertaken in both World War Two and World War Three. Nazi propaganda is a thoroughly explored topic. I dont think we even really need to go into that because if you dont know about that Id be very very surprised.

Ive recounted a lot of it here. Nazi Germany would vilify obviously its enemies even though its enemies werent invading them. They were invading their socalled enemies. They would engage in psyops, claiming to be victims and of course, they werent the victims.

The US Empire uses manufactured intelligence. Criticism of the conduct . you can see it wikth Venezuela, with North Korea, with everybody who they havent managed to invade yet that they want to invade, they engage in the same type of demonization and psyops. We saw tons of it, tons of it in Syria. Another recurring theme for the US is that cyclic or doomsday warnings about mortal dangers of weapons of mass destruction, chemical weapons in Iraq, unacceptable chemical weapons in Syria, are the redline.

But there is little mention or concern for where and how these technologies were supplied to or obtained by the countries possessing them because, guess what, it turns out the chemical weapons actually came from the United States. And that they talk about Iraq and the Kurds and the chemical weapons there I think thats something that all of you would know about also. Ive investigated the stated justifications of Nazi Germany and of the US Empire for each of the military incursions and created the following table. So again from their original table from John D Clare.

Im now modeling off that original table, but this time Im doing it about the justifications for each of the invasions leading up to World War Two and leading up to World War Three. So in 1936, their invasion of the Rhineland was supposedly this is their stated reason their excuse basically was to protect Germanys western border. In 1938 in the Sudetenland, the unification of German peoples: they were bringing their own people together and uniting them.

And they had claims of alleged oppression of Germanic people. So they were saying, you know, people of Germanic origin are being discriminated against and therefore we need to reunify with them to protect them. They used the same excuse in Austria, then they used the same excuse in Czechoslovakia, but in each of those they werent uniting anyone, what they were doing was usurping all of the land of the province and then asserting governance, mandating governance over it.

Then in Poland they said that again they were protecting Germanic peoples within Polish border who were allegedly fleeing Polish terror, and they said that pulled the Polish were terrorists. And once again, that resulted in usurping all of the land of Poland and asserting governance over Poland, and killing a million Polish people in the meantime. And I didnt mention above the further German invasions throughout the rest of the war. I just went up to the date that war was actually declared.

So now we look at the excuses that the US has come up with for its invasions over the last 20 years. In 2001 Afghanistan was about September 11th, because it was supposedly a terrorist safe harbor for Osama bin Laden and alQaeda. The end result as of 2016 the country had remained in chaos 15 years later. 2003 in Iraq, it was weapons of mass destruction, removing a dictator and protecting human rights.

Outcome? The WMD allegation was proven false, millions of dead and displaced. 2004 Pakistan was about September 11th, terrorist safe harbor for Osama Bin Laden and alQaeda, drone straight strikes are ongoing some 12 years later, many dead, and to this day I believe theyre still doing drone strikes in the border region.

2011 Libya was about removing a dictator, protecting human rights. Remember those poor, they said, those woman had been raped theyd come into the hotel to tell the journalists theyd been raped and thats why we needed to invade Libya. Sure enough, as of 2016 the country remained in total chaos, five years later now eight years later, still in total chaos. 2011 Syria was about removing the dictator Assad and protecting human rights.

But, yet again, the country still remains in chaos, millions of dead and displaced. Now in 2016 that was certainly the case. Russia was only just starting to bolster Syria at that point. In 2019 there is some stable regions of Syria where the Syrian government with foreign allies has managed to create safe zones.

However, there is still conflict in other parts of the country, obviously. In 2016 their excuse for declaring cyber war on Russia was supposed to be in relation to . was supposed to be retaliatory cyber warfare due to the accusation of alleged interference in the US election. The allegations of Russiagate remain unproven and the outcome is yet to be determined.

Of course, for the propaganda of the state to thrive there must be a wholesale subjugation of the Press. This can be achieved economically through mergers and acquisitions of the corporations that own them. It can be accomplished through smear campaigns and career disadvantages for those who refuse to toe the line and weve seen plenty of that, also prosecutions.

If none of that works and theres the outright criminalization of the truth and the persecution of those who tell it. And if that isnt Julian Assange in I dont know what is. Julian Assange was the ultimate truth teller about geopolitics and the state of our world and has been is being persecuted to death for it. So there is a really interesting case study. Im just going to tell you the story myself actually rather than reading it off the page.

Theres a really interesting case study in Nazi Germany World War Three, actually pre World War Two times, and thats that theres this publication. heres a publication that was the last . Ill take this off screen share and Ill just tell you this story. Um, it was the last publication in Germany on German soil to openly oppose the Hitler Nazi regime and to tell the truth about the crimes that were being committed, the extrajudicial killings and the war crimes were being committed and the crimes of aggression and invasion. It was called the Munich Post, but Hitler hated their guts and Hitler called them the Poison Kitchen. And they only had about a dozen editors and staff working for them, but they were documenting the extrajudicial killings of citizens by the SS.

So think about how brave these people were and for a dozen years prior to the declaration of war. I think . I want to say 1921 to 1933, off the top of my head. We could go back and check all the facts are in my article and the source links. For 12 years, they were publishing the truth about the rise of Hitler and the fascist youth and the SS and the persecution and extrajudicial killings of citizens, and they received threat after threat after threat that they would be shut down that they would be killed even, and they continued to publish. They continued to publish even as their country was terrorized by its government, even as the bodies lay in the street, they continued to publish and they refused to stop publishing.

And eventually Hitler sent the SS to ransack and burn down the offices to the offices of the of the newspaper and to seize the printing process, to arrest the journalists and editors, and some were killed and others were thrown in concentration camps. They are the epitome of what journalism is supposed to be, and of what journalists and editors and media are supposed to be. Media is supposed to be a public service. Theyre supposed to serve the public.

Theyre not supposed to serve corporations. Theyre not supposed to do what they do for financial reasons, or for career advancement reasons. They are supposed to dig out the dark underbelly of whatever is happening in either their local or national or international society and to expose the truth of it for the betterment of humanity and for the benefit of humanity. And that Is what the Poison Kitchen did.

The Poison Kitchen is the ultimate example of the obligation and responsibility of journalism. So I do actually want to and I named the people from the Poison Kitchen in the article, and I actually think its really important to say their names. So Here we are right here that is important that we name the names of the courageous.

Twogood continues: Protestors to Hitler fought with their hearts and jeopardized their freedom and lives hoping that the world would listen. That is also Equador right now: the protesters are begging for the world to listen as the entire western media sit silent. The men of the Poison Kitchen, the Munich Post included Martin Gruber Erhad Auer, Edmund Goldshagg, Julius Zerfass and others, reporters and editors of the Munich Post. They faced imprisonment and death, trying unsuccessfully to warn the world, and with the passage of time their truth rings ever stronger.

Why does it ring ever stronger? Because they were right! They were right, and it cost them their lives and they gave their lives for the benefit of everybody else trying to warn people. Trying to warn the world about what was going on. Even in this modern day real journalists are often martyred for living up to the ideals the profession.

Yet again, Julian Assange. True journalism is a public service and service to the historical record to tell the unpopular truth about nefarious power NO MATTER THE RISK! While the perilous days of the Poison Kitchen may seem long behind us the preconditions for such a reoccurrence surround us. Journalists around the world are being spied on and in many cases illegally monitored by the governments using hightech equipment and corresponding laws that were designed for combating terrorism.

The death of America . and I just like to point something out here . we hear all the time about Trump is so acrimonious to the press, and the poor press having to work in this hostile environment and blah blah blah. Im sorry Trump sending some mean tweets or like saying some mean stuff at a press conference is not a fucking patch on what Julian Assange is being put through, but we dont hear our Trumps persecuting Julian Assange, We hear, ohh Trumps being mean to this ABC News anchor, whatever, he sent this tweet or like said this at a press conference . No! There are to this day journalists who have either lost their lives on whose lives are on the line, who stand to die for providing truth and accurate journalism for the benefit of humanity. Lets say the names: Julian Assange is at the top of the list.

Top of the list. Now talking about saying the names: the death of American journalist Serena Shim and the lack of investigation into her passing the jailing of citizen journalists who eyewitness police killings of unarmed citizens the siege of WikiLeaks editorinchief Julia Assange The litigation that brought Gawker Media to its knees the arrest and detention of Democracy Nows Amy Goodman and the felony charges against a documentary producer at NoDAPL, which is the Dakota access pipeline protests, where once again mercenary police forces unleashed munitions upon a civilian population in the United States, are all dire warnings. We might not be so far away from an escalation to internment camps, arbitrary detention and open military conflict as we might like to think. And if that seems far away this is 2016.

Internment camps, arbitrary detention, sound familiar? An open military conflict is what we are already seeing in the Middle East. At any given time the US Empire has an ace in their pocket, but as they are well aware bringing the press to heel can also be achieved most potently by harnessing galvanizing events such as perceived attacks upon the country, as with the Reichstag fire in 1933 or the Gulf of Tonkin naval incident at the start of the Vietnam War.

The culpability for these incidents can often weigh a lot closer to home than the establishment ever lets on. And then I go through and give an example of a psyop. A psyop to the benefit of Saudi Arabia and against to give me yet was him in that occurred in 2016, which people are probably now already forgotten about.

If you want to read about that you can have a look at this article conraspin.co.nz, and put in the search Understanding World War Three To save us some time. Im not going to go through it now. And then I talk again about the inception of the Vietnam War being based on a false flag. Okay, so yet another another aspect . another similarity between the leadup to World War Two and this, well, ongoing World War Three is Waging War at Home.

So in December 2012. Jeh Johnson the general counsel for the Department of Defense stated that the military fight will be replaced by lawenforcement operation when speaking of Oxford University. Throughout history the United States has used counterintelligence tactics to wage war against its own citizens when they congregate en mass to exercise democratic rights. But particularly since 2011 there has been a dramatic increase in the prevalence of military grade equipment flowing to police forces and brutal physical oppression meted out against demonstrators and occupiers. Well, it was assumed to be a forprofit driven consequence of the privatization of key aspects of the military or just harsh policing tactics.

There is now evidence that stormtrooperlike riot police serving as a domestic army is in alignment with the strategic plans of the Department of Defense. And then I cite a article that was released by The Intercept in 2016. You need to watch this article.

Its an internal Department of Defense article and in it, and again, Im going to skip through this for the sake of time because this is like a 10, 000 word article and well be here all night If I try to read every single word of it, but in that, and then I have a timestamped analysis of the article but the . sorry of the article . the gist of the article is that the Department of Defense is outright stating that the future of warfare is urban, and its urban in terms of the Western world and that it will be waged by our soldiers in the future army, they say, redefining doctrine and the force while showing hordes of riot cops in military gear. So these riot cops that we saw used against Occupy and other protest movements and like were seeing in Ecuador right now, are envisioned by the Department of Defense as being not police but soldiers and being the future army that will police urban areas on American soil. Now if that doesnt scare the shit out of you, I dont know what does.

Like your military has basically decided, oh, yeah, we cant roll around the streets as the military. So what we do is we take the police forces and we kit them out like as if theyre military and then we get a bunch of exmilitary guys and get them recruited into law enforcement. And then voila we have a military, but people dont recognize it as military. They recognize it as being domestic police forces, but in fact its the military, military equipment, military personnel, according to the militarys own strategic plan.

That should seriously scare the shit out of you guys, and its already in place and it is already happening. Sorry, I just put my zoom share back up. So thats the gist of that article and I suggest you watch it. The article itself is frickin terrifying quite frankly.

And then Im making the point that Nazi Germany also had hordes of blackclad police with military equipment attacking its own citizens. The US Empire is not the first to institute that. Nazi Germany had the SS.

They too operated in tandem with military objectives and made a hunting ground out of their own cities. Then I talked about how every Empire overextends itself. I say Empirical governors always seek to expand, expand, expand.

Or in terms of the acquisition the exfiltration of resources to usurp and consume. Each military misadventure overplays itself into the next endeavour. So basically things start out nice and easy when empires are waging these invasions. Like we discussed before theres not really any resistance or its just some local resistance in the first invasions, but as the string of invasions continues the resistance builds. Resistance builds until eventually the resisting force is actually a nation state or multiple nation states acting in a coalition.

And eventually they push it too far and get to the point where the opposing force is equal or greater. And thats exactly what happened to Nazi Germany. Nazi Germany bit off more than I could chew.

And its inevitable at this point that the US Empire is going to do exactly the same thing. Theyre going to push it too far and their little Empire of a million whatever, thousands of military bases around the world is going to collapse. Its going to implode whether its economically collapsed or whether, in my opinion its more likely, that the direct coalition of forces that confront them will be too great.

Its coming I have no doubt about that. And then I go right through the progression for Nazi Germany as to their overextension and the ways in which they suffered and paid for that. And then I talk about the attrition of the US allies, of the socalled Coalition of the Willing, which has actually been getting smaller and smaller and smaller in recent years. There is in fact less and less countries who are willing to be involved in these invasions being waged by US Empire.

The Allies list is getting shorter and shorter. Then I have a little bit more stuff about Russia and Germany which may interest you and talking about the role of women in war and the Battle of Stalingrad. Theres some pretty awesome facts in there. The escalation of war seems inevitable because it is so closely following the blueprint of the past.

The biggest ended indicator of impending conflict is the imposition of economic sanctions and this is another really pertinent section of this article and thats where I have a look at the historical role of sanctions. So sanctions were literally used 2, 400 years ago, thats how old the practice of economic sanctions are. And sanctions throughout history have always led to war. Sanctions and war are linked to each other. Theres this quote if you go against sanctions, you should know, nothing against sanctions, but if you do that, you should know that there is only war left.

You can sanction and sanction and sanction, but eventually it leaves you with no other option than invasion. Of course some may argue that sanctions are active warfare. Certainly the method of murder, economic or military made no difference to the half a million Iraqi children who died as a direct result of sanctions in the 1990s.

Sanctions imposed by vampires, held in place even after the premises under which they were imposed had been proven to be false. This is the thing. Imposing sanctions is always done more prevalently than lifting sanctions. And lifting sanctions as usually for cosmetic effect. They will lift one or two sanctions, but its almost like its irreversible.

They can reverse sanctions but they almost never do, and thats because the goal isnt actually whats stated. The goal is about control. Once again, its about control. Now if youve watched these shows for the last few weeks you will know a lot about the global network. The global network being what the NSA calls its established partner relationships with a hundredplus countries around the globe.

Their goal is to have every single country become a member the global network. They want to monopolize the entire planet, and the intelligence sphere, and the data and networks of every country on the globe. Sanctions are more about bringing a country into the pattern into the arms of the militaryindustrial complex. Than they actually are about achieving any tactical economic gain.

Its about supremacy. Its about control. All of this comes down to being about supremacy and about control.

Okay, so theres a lot more content in this article, but Im not actually going to go through much of it because Ive made the really key points that I wanted to make. So if you want to come and have a look through the rest of it you can. Theres some stuff about Hillary and Secretaries of State. And then I talked about . people who provided bridges between countries at contentious times.

Oh there we are, weve made it to the end anyway. So that may be of some interest to you as well. Really the key points I want to make here are that I believe World War Three has already been happening. I believe it was happening as far back as Bush saying the whole world is a battlefield and the string of invasions that weve seen is part of World War Three. Just because World War Three hasnt been declared doesnt mean that it isnt already happening.

And that was really the thought that I wanted to leave you with and also, I just circle back to the point that I made earlier on. Which is that not one bomb could have been dropped in any of these countries with our intelligence agencies and that the same intelligence agencies who have expanded their target pool to millions of citizens in countries that arent supposed to be war zones, in countries where theyre not supposed to be at war, and theyre targeting people like me who have no military background, no military training, who possess no weapons, who have no history of violence. And I end up on a terrorist watch list.

Theres a problem with these agencies when they have to deem people terrorists who are not terrorists and where they bring to bear military resources, targeting systems, personnel, against civilians. Unarmed civilians. It makes them no different than the military who are currently killing people in Ecuador.

Its just these intelligence agencies kill us a lot more slowly. They kill us more slowly and then kill us more quietly. But it is the same core issue. That abuse of military resources and personnel and networks in targeting and devastating the lives of citizens of their own country. Okay.

Im going to have another quick drink now and if you guys would like to ask me any questions, please tag me in the chats and I will ask our cool social media volunteers to relay your questions to me, or Ill try and have a look out for a few myself. Ill answer questions for about 20 minutes, and then Im going to try and get some sleep because its already after five oclock in the morning here. So I hope that you enjoyed the presentation tonight. I hope that was an intriguing talk for you about understanding World War Three. Let me know what you think about it, please I really want the feedback and I want to know if that has any impact for you.

And next Sunday, we will be doing the surveillance teachin, and well be heading back to constructing our slides, which might be a bit more visually impressive for you guys. Okay, Ill be back in three minutes. Hey everyone, hopefully, you can see and hear me again. We have got a ton of questions and a couple of discussion topics. Im going to try and knock them off really quickly.

I saw someone talking about Amy Goodman. I was disappointed that Amy Goodman kind of toed the line, with making Julian Assange a little bit persona nongrata post 2016 election. Other than that Democracy Now is actually one of the best news sources in terms of protest movements, activism events, around the world.

They generally have pretty fair coverage about them and I appreciate them as a news source for that reason, and I do watch Democracy Now for that reason. However, I do wish that they had had a bit more courage in standing by Julian and WikiLeaks. Unfortunately they were obviously feeling the pressure from their support base and they did lapse somewhat and their support of Julian and WikiLeaks in that post 2016 election period. I see somebody else asking about TPP. I was a cofounder of TPPNoWay which was a hashtag founded in New Zealand in support of the movement against the TPP.

I worked on that issue for about seven years actually. Worked very closely on the issue and in support of serious major mass protests against TPP. Ive often said that the one thing that Trump has done that I really was very happy about and applauding, was when he ditched the TPP and Im ashamed and disappointed that my country New Zealand particularly Jacinda Ardern and the Labour government that came in, in 2017. One of the first things they did was to fasttrack and push through the TPP, ahead of any participation by the United States.

I think that was shameful. I think it was a betrayal of their base. I think it was a betrayal of the will of the people of New Zealand and of much of the world. And it was a total corporate sellout.

I would point out that WikiLeaks was the most significant publisher in terms of information about the TPP, they got their hands on leaked chapters of the TVP and published them at a time when nobody else had. Their reporting was incredibly significant. They also engaged experts around the world including Dr Jane Kelsey who was the founder of the New Zealand movement against the TPP, and had those experts and specialists and dissect and analyze and report on the significance of the provisions of the various chapters of the TPP. Yet again WikiLeaks provided an invaluable public service on that.

Now so the question was specifically whether I discussed TPP in terms of understanding World War Three. The answer is no I didnt. However TPP is like the Big Daddy version of the 90s socalled free trade agreements, and I did discuss TPP last week when I was talking about economic supremacy and how the TPP was actively supported and promoted and actually called an imperative to national security by the intelligence agencies. The TPP was absolutely a priority. The passage of it was the priority of Western intelligence agencies and that in and of itself says a lot.

Someone else: on the topic of pretext of war I have I read any analysis of this development of naval bases in the Pacific? If youre talking about the pivot to Asia then the pivot to Asia is actually covered in my article understanding World War Three. I skipped past that part But if you go to their article and you CTRLF pivot to Asia, I do actually talk about that aspect of it. So you can have a read of that there. And I have talked a lot and other articles Ive done as well about that.

So I assume that would cover it off. Thank you to all the people who say that this talk was valuable and thoughtprovoking for them. I really really really really really appreciate that Someone else.

Do I have any opinion on Israel and in particular Netanyahu driving the wars in the Middle East? i.e. he was pushing to invade Iraq pre2001, Genie Oil etc. Absolutely. Israel is a major war wager. Israel constantly wages proxy wars. They prefer to fight on other peoples soil, rather than their own.

They are quite happy with their apartheid regime um, it feels wrong to even say their own soil, but effectively their own soil. But they prefer to take their fights to other peoples countries and to fight in those countries. Now I did cover off some stuff about Israel when I talked about the Two Eyes in the very first episode of the series I did an overview of all of the different collections of eyes of the intelligence agencies, and talked about how USIsrael have a socalled special relationship that is actually above Tte level even of the Five Eyes, the Five Eyes being US, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand And I also talked to about Israels penchant for these private digital security hacking companies who . I mean Snowden has done great work around there. I would absolutely . God he did the greatest talk, I want to say, was it late last year?

I think was late last year. He actually spoke in Israel. I mean people, this is another thing you hear all the time.

Julian doesnt publish about Israel. Snowden doesnt talk about Israel. Go to wikileaks.org type in Israel press ENTER and then tell me that Julian doesnt publish about Israel.

There is mountains of stuff about Israel in there, and Snowden took a speaking engagement in Tel Aviv, and then use that speaking invade engagement to absolutely lambast Israel for its private hacking companies which are supplying engineering and supplying spyware and hacking tools to governments around the world, to target, persecute, and in some cases murder activists journalists and dissidents. So I would definitely go and search Snowden Israel, because that was one of the most epic and in my opinion consequential talks that Ed Snowden has ever done. Yes, its 5:30 a.m. now, to the person whos asking.

Okay, what else? I know I just missed a bunch of questions. What do I think could be the final nail in US Empire?

I think the weight of its own structure is what will be the fight . I mean, Id like to say that the final nail in the US Empire would be the people fight back against it and they dont stand for this anymore. Because people still do have the power and thats also part of what were seeing in Ecuador right now. The Ecuadorian government is absolutely shitting themselves about the display of people power thats on the streets in Ecuador. Thats why theyre rolling out the tanks there, why are they acting like its Egypt. I would like to think its the people.

A mass of people taking about the power. People becoming aware, people becoming learned and knowledgeable about the global network and acting to shut it down. Thats what I hope but I think that ultimately it will collapse under its own weight. it relies on a perpetual growth model and eventually, it wont be able to grow any more. Theres only so many countries on this planet and only so many people to oppress and so many people to target. I think that as they continually expand the groups of society that they target which is something weve talked a lot about in previous shows, examples of the ways that theyre doing that.

I think its simply unsustainable. Eventually they start eating their own, eventually They will start having to target their own support base and once they do that there are in really big trouble. Okay, I feel like I just missed a bunch of questions actually.

What are my favorite stress reduction techniques? Righteous indignation laughs . Whats kept me going all these years hasnt been because Im really strong or because Im really brave. Its been righteous indignation. Its been because I am so pissed off that the spy agencies of my country are in violation of their founding charter, targeting their own citizens. Im so pissed off that they are sucking up all the data in respect of all the people in my country and then shipping it off to a foreign government.

Which in my opinion is an act of treason. I am so upset that military, legislation, resources, personnel, networks are being used to target nonviolent, unarmed, peaceful dissidents, in total violation of every democratic principle and all of our protected democratic and human rights. Im so pissed off about that that I dont care that Im just one woman and I dont care that they have billions of dollars and I have nothing.

I will ideologically oppose them because they are wrong! They are absolutely fundamentally wrong and what they do is so immoral and so egregious is so unethical that on principle, with nothing but my voice, I will oppose them until Kingdom Come and hopefully enough other people will feel the same that they will lend their voices and their support and whatever little resources they have in this disgusting global economic climate, to push back as well. Because I dont want to live in this dystopia and we who are the victims of it, are ultimately going to be the ones that are going to have to and I mean victims, like everybody is a victim of mass surveillance. Its not just the victims of targeted surveillance, like myself. Everybody is being traded and their private lives have been commercialized without their consent and that data is being shared around the world with foreign countries in a total violation of our civil rights.

We together have a chance at shutting these guys down, when it becomes socially unacceptable to work for a spy agency. Thats when well make some progress. When it becomes socially unacceptable to be associated with the targeting of civilians. Then well make some progress and thats the point that weve got to get to.

Weve got to get to the point where its like. Oh, youre applying to work at the NSA. Oh my God How shameful, how can you be a part of that?

Then well make some progress. Aand you know I talked about like wanting to abolish these agencies and its the type of conduct that Ive seen and witnessed and been subjected to that makes me think they are beyond help and need to be abolished. However, if they were to stick to their actual founding charters, like if they were to spy on other spies or diplomats, or foreign diplomats or whatever it is that they actually supposed to be doing. Im okay with that.

I am NOT okay with endless war, perpetual war, killing civilians, extrajudicial assassinations, spying on dissidents, destroying lives of dissidents. Im not okay with the privatization of military functions, Im not okay with all of these private intelligence companies and spying companies and mercenaries and everything running around targeting people for profit. Im not okay with any of that.

But if they could take it back to day one and do what theyre actually freakin supposed to be doing on public dollars, that, in that situation, I would never have come to oppose them. I would never be taking a moral stand against them. I wouldnt know any different because I wouldnt have been dragged into their insane games, and subjected to their shit.

So its not that I just think all intelligence agencies should be shut down. I think they should be doing their actual job which are actually founded to do. Which was not to target their own citizens and not to target civilians who are unarmed and whove never hurt anyone, never going to hurt anyone. So thats my little lecture.

Okay, guys, Im going to run Im sorry, I know theres a lot of other questions but Im pretty pooped now. Ive been talking for two and a half hours and I need to take a break. I dDeeply appreciate you being here.

I would absolutely ask . its really cool that people Super Chat on Grahams channel, but do know that that money goes to Graham and Im happy for it to go to Graham because it is actually phenomenally awesome of him, its great act of solidarity for him to lend me his audience. Like what a cool guy to do that. What a cool guy to stand up and support someone like me whose work is so contentious? And he lends me 50, 000 subscribers every week because he wants these messages and this information to get out, and that says a lot about her Graham is as a person.

The fact that he is willing to publicly stand by me and stand by my work and my situation says a huge amount about him. And that he lends me the platform that hes built from his own work to do it. I greatly respect and greatly appreciate.

Likewise, I want to take action against these agencies. I want to fight back and set some meaningful precedents. I want to get some restitution for what theyve cost me and my children and my family. And to do that I do need you guys to donate. And to donate you go to 1vs5i.comdonate 1vs5i.comdonate and please give generously.

Or if you cant, which I completely understand, there are so many people that are in a position that they simply dont have 50 cents you know to their names that instead you just pick up these messages, these links, promote the short articles any other content on the YouTube channel, the website, any of it. Spread it as far and wide as you can because as you can see no media is admitting that there is a woman and two kids living in exile in Russia from New Zealand for the last three and a half years because of persecution by state agencies. They will not admit that.

They will not promote this campaign. So word of mouth is the only way that we can build something important here, and that we can break through. So Thank you so, so much.

Im going to blow you a kiss and Im going to see you next week I saw one person ask will I be back again next Sunday? I will be back here next Sunday. Ill see you next week for the surveillance teachin for Opening the Five Eyes Exposing The Methods of the Spies. Ka ki te anoa, as we say in New Zealand, and good night everybody.

Hi, my name is Suzie, Im an activist and a journalist from Auckland, New Zealand. For years, Ive worked on controversial issues like the corruption of our intelligence agencies. I was severely targeted as a result of my work.

This led to my articles being amplified by the worlds most accomplished publisher. In 2016 I made a documentary about how and why I was forced to leave my country. I have now sought refuge in Russia and my situation has become public. On 882 6PR its the voice of Perth.

Its 1230 right now and Tony with you, and Im really happy we finally got through to a Moscow to my friend over there Suzie Dawson. Youre listening to a 95bFM podcast. Suzie Dawson is a Kiwi activist and journalist who worked as a member of Occupy Aucklands media team at that time. Now, five years later and following involvement in GCSB and TPPA opposition, shes seeking asylum in Russia alleging she has been spied on harassed and threatened by the Police. Welcome back to The Wire.

Now finally on the show today, last week it was announced that Suzie Dawson will be the new leader of the Internet Party. Welcome to the Jimmy Dore show. We have a special guest with us. Its Suzie Dawson. Shes an activist, journalist, former party leader and current president of the Internet Party.

Suzie Dawson, an activist and citizen journalist currently seeking asylum in Moscow. Suzie has written extensively on surveillance and the deep state and claims its not safe for her in New Zealand. My name is Craig Tuck.

Im a lawyer from New Zealand. I act in the area of international human rights. I act for Suzie Dawson along with a group of other lawyers throughout the world who act for journalists and dissenters in highprofile cases including the case of Julian Assange. As far back as 2012 Suzie has been trying to warn New Zealanders and other citizens around the world about state targeting and surveillance of citizens and the methods being used to do it.

Surveillance in New Zealand, is now so widespread its not an issue of Police going and getting a warrant and doing an investigation and then it all coming out in court. The vast majority is the surveillance that is undertaken is never going to be aired in a courtroom And by that Im talking about cell phone technologies, Im talking about lawful interceptionthe term that the companies that do this like to use. There is a corporation in Wellington, New Zealand called SSI Corp and you can google them and you can look at their website. And on their website theyre so good as to explain at length exactly what they do and how legal it is for them to do it.

And essentially they can intercept virtually any communication. If they have someone at range they can hear your actual conversations, but also through cell phones they can essentially turn them into microphones and hear any conversation thats had within the vicinity. They can see your txt messages.

They can see what photos are on your phone. They can see what files are on your phone. They can read your emails. They can just intercept all kinds of information. Any intelligence service in the world that has significant funding and a real technological research team, can own that phone.

The minute it connects to their networkas soon as you turn it onit can be theirs. They can turn it into a microphone. They can take pictures from it. They can take the data off of it. But its important to understand that these things are typically done on a targeted basis.

Not only was Suzie essentially blowing a whistle on statelevel spying, she was naming the precise entities that years later it would be proven had in fact been doing it. And the fact that these are private corporations that are doing it, should be really concerning to us. The crowd that they outsourced it to was TCIL which was, I believe, Thompson Clark Investigations Limited. The state is contracting a private company to surveil you. To me, thats really immoral.

Absolutely immoral. Some six years later in December 2018 an official State Services Commission report confirmed that New Zealand government agencies had been employing Thompson and Clark Investigations Limited to target New Zealand citizens. This is a private company that had essentially been instructed by state agencies and departments to spy on citizens. More than a dozen Police staff are under investigation for passing sensitive information to the private investigators Thompson and Clark.

Thompson and Clark security firm . Thompson and Clark . So Thompson and Clark and they arent some of them old Police officers. Ah, yes, they are. Okay, so does that explain the relationship and the free flow of information? Doesnt it actually seem a bit crass? Well, at the end of the day I guess what I trust is peoples intent . The report identifies perhaps inappropriately close relationships.

Morning teas paid for by Thompson and Clark. Invitations to go out for drinks. Were there other companies identified where you inappropriately gave them information, or just Thompson and Clark? Erm, there are a myriad of security companies who inquire of Police every day, for instance insurers, er, security . Thats not my question.

People listening to this will think hey Thompson and Clark were getting stellar topshelf gold star treatment from the Police. Why? Do you treat other security firms the same as you were treating this one?

And how do you seriously think it looks to members of the public listening to this? Thompson and Clark hasnt just been paid by the government to spy on Greenpeace and earthquake claimants in Christchurch. Tonight Checkpoint can reveal the controversial security firm has been also monitoring the activities of another three activist groups in Northland, Coromandel, and Wellington and the activities of at least one further claimant. Suzie has been involved at the very highest levels with people facing charges from prosecutions coming out of the Eastern District Court of Virginia in the United States. There are more prosecutions to follow, of currently unnamed persons.

Importantly information will be coming out in the months to come that will provide transparency and clarity and lead to accountability. Suppression and prosecution of dissenters cant be allowed in New Zealand or elsewhere. Thats why Suzies team is launching the hashtag 1vs5i campaign, and with your help can achieve some important victories for democracy and for each and every one of us. Episode 4: Opening the Five Eyes: Exposing The Methods of the Spies a So Im going to do something I havent done before but which I think is a really good exercise and that is that Im actually going to create one of my little slides right here for you, and Im going to call it the Access Waterfall For Technology Who gets technology first? And the answer to that is the military gets it first.

They get it first because the global network . in fact Ill say the military via espionage. The global network is literally spying on innovators around the globe, seeing what theyre doing what theyre going to be doing, working out then, prioritizing what technologies they want to get their hands on first, and or developing their own because I should mention that obviously the military has its own RampampD programs as well, but it has a very strong interest in simply stealing the secrets of other nations or other foreign corporations etc. etc. So the military has access to technology long before we do. And after the military is what I call the MilitaryIndustrial Complex. So this is where the contractors etc. are also given access to cuttingedge technology that is not yet available in the commercial space.

So Ill just give a couple of quick examples there, in terms of the military Having primary access. In one of the NSA documents, it talks about . its talking about 1990 and its talking about how the global network as it existed in 1990 already operated and had access to a multinational multimedia portal. So they were sharing articles and picture files between themselves in 1990. Now in 1990 we were using monochrome screens and we were lucky if we could use a newsgroup. We didnt have email, and these guys were sharing like article files and photos with each other the way that we were in what, like 1999, 2000, 2001?

And this is what I mean about were a decade behind. And just in terms of the military industrial complex getting access to technology before any of us do, there are some fantastic WikiLeaks files about that. So in WikiLeaks Hacking Team files, so this is an Italian corporation, private hacking corporate, mercenary hacking corporation called the Hacking Team and their emails, which were leaked to WikiLeaks, they had marketing materials from defense industry weapons manufacturers and in those emails they were being offered access to hardware and technology, which was only available to the militaryindustrialcomplex which was not in the commercial sphere which you and I could never go and access or buy, but the access to it was being extended to corporations and companies like Hacking Team who are like satellite companies or satellite service providers for the militaryindustrial complex.

So thats yet another example of what I would call Tier 2. So Tier 1 is like the military, is the top of the food chain. The militaries that control this planet and all of our countriesnot our governments are in control its the militaries that are in control they are Tier 1 for the access to technology. Tier 2 is the militaryindustrial complex. Okay, so then Tier 3. I would consider Tier 3 would be the commercial market for the global elite. Right, so this is the people who can .ah because this isjust one other thing about that Hacking Team the Italian crowd that I was talking about a second ago They, that mailing list, just to just to receive the emails, the marketing emails from the defense contractors, it costs 8, 000 euros.

Like you had to subscribe, you had to have a membership and pay 8, 000 euros just to even access these lists of technology hardware that were available for sale from the weapons manufacturers. So that gives you some idea, again its about creating that barrier, right, like a normal person cannot afford to pay 8, 000 euros to receive some marketing emails for a defense contractor. But a corporation, a company in the military . thats a part of the militaryindustrial complex, what do they care about 8, 000 euros.

8, 000 euros to them is like 8 to us. So they use money to create a barrier to restrict that access, access to information about what even is available. And it takes you and I reading something like WikiLeaks years and years after the fact to even begin to get an understanding about what these guys have access to and what is out there in this world.

So the next tier down from the militaryindustrial complex would be I would put the global elite. And by this, I mean people with money. And Im sure like, you would have seen it because they like to show their stuff off, on like, you know whatever lifestyles of the rich and famous, and the many MTV offshoots in more recent years, and you will see in the mega mansions they have technology in their homes which is beyond the wildest dreams of any consumer.

And the reason once again that they have that is because they have money. And so those who have been whose activities have been blessed by the systems of control that run in our society have been fiscally rewarded and not only does that mean they have a lot of money but it means they have access to technologies, which you and I simply cannot afford. So yet again money is being used as a barrier, an entry barrier to access to technology and to innovation.

So after these guys then we have the US commercial market. So this is like, you know, somewhere down the track, however, many years you think about like 1990 this is a multimedia portal. Right? So maybe 1992 these guys are getting access to it, so maybe 1995 these guys are starting to get access to it. So now its 1999 and theyre ready to roll it out to the American public and generally speaking, the American public are the first ones to get access to the first regular citizens of the world to get access to technology.

Ill put here US commercial market. And then after the US commercial market, this is where access to technology becomes a Id say almost a bludgeoning tool that is used for other countries that have relationships with the US for whatever to whatever extent. So I would put here US MICfavored partner countries.

So this is where you see the rest of the Five Eyes is gettingI mean I can tell you in New Zealand, I can absolutely tell you coming from New Zealand. New Zealand, think about it, is one of the four most favored countries in theory of the United States around the world, you know, the englishspeaking countries of this tightknit group, tightknit group that stick together. And New Zealand was always behind the US on technology. Always, we always had to see and hear about things before they ever made it to us. So New Zealand would still be somewhere close to the top of that list, but now think about somewhere like, and Im just pulling like a country name out of a hat . Ghana Like where is Ghana on the where are the citizens of Ghana on their access to technology waterfall.

They are like a way to hell down the bottom, and then now think about somewhere like Russia, or somewhere like Iran . where are they on the access to technology waterfall? Not only are they massive targets for RampampD espionage for anything they do manage to develop themselves out of their own universities or their own science and research research spaces, but they are also the last to be granted any type of access to innovation from the global network. So then we would have at the bottom here the very very very very very tail end of the waterfall as The USMIC leastfavored non partner countries, Ill just make this fullscreen. So hopefully you can all see it.

So there you go for any of you who were wondering whether I actually make these screens myself, whether I make these slides myself. Yes, all of this is my own research, its my own deductions, and its based on years of research, and if you go back through my body of work and my body of articles you will discover that every little piece of information I give you here is from research that I did at any given time and wrote about in my longform articles. So Im just going to save that.

And that is an excellent screen, I think, in my opinion to show the the way that access to technology is staggered in favor of the global network of intelligence agencies, and the military and the war mongers and the war wagers of this world, and how us little regular people down here are the absolute last to enjoy the fruits of any technological innovation. Weve also seen from studying the NSA documents that there is a humongous obsession inside the NSA with what they call Budget Day. And this is where once a year they prepare their budgets for Congressional approval and there are multiple documents in the NSA Snowden files with NSA warning its personnel do not submit anything which may in any way justify restriction of our funding. And they also tell the personnel there if they run the documents past a certain budgeting office that they will be sure to reword their requests and applications in a way which is most likely to maximize the funding that they can get from Congress for their activities. So receiving the maximum amount of money possible is absolutely and definitely one of their strategic objectives.

They are obsessed with stopping Congress getting information about their activities, but yet maximizing the amount of money that they can get Congress to approve for their activities. And they have no qualms about bending the truth in order to be able to justify that We in the Western world we operate under this fallacy, this complete fallacy of a meritocracy. Were told like anybody can become a millionaire.

If you have a great idea and you work really really hard and you have good people around you. You can be the next Bill Gates. Im telling you for a fact thats bullshit and Kim Dotcom is a classic example of that. Kin Dotcom had great ideas and great people and built amazing products that everybody liked and hundreds of millions of people were using and was consuming four percent of global Internet traffic. And what happened to Kim Dotcom?

Ah, hello. His house was raided by a hundred armed police with helicopters and attack dogs and hes now been through seven years of litigation and theyre attempting to extradite him. Where are theyattempting to extradite him to? Theyre attempting to extradite him to the Eastern District Court of Virginia, which is the same court the prosecuted John Kiriakou, that is trying to extradite and prosecute Julian Assange, and that wants to prosecute Edward Snowden. So why is he being prosecuted in the Eastern District Court of Virginia?

Apparently for copyright infringement. Copyright infringement is a civil offense and not a criminal offense and yet his home is ratided, all of his personal belongings are seized, his business is forcibly shut down. The FBI seized his domains and his web sites.

All of his customer data was erased from the face of this earth, and he has been relentlessly persecuted and smeared in the media. Why? Because the meritocracy does not exist because Kim Dotcom was supporting WikiLeaks. Kim Dotcom took a stand against the intelligence agencies and would not capitulate and allow his business to be run by them, and as a result he became a target of them. And this is what happens at all levels of technological development.

If your project shows any promise or any significance you will either be bought out or you will be destroyed. And likewise they like these monopolies to exist in the hardware and software space, just like they want to create monopolies and maintain monopolies in the telco and ISP space, so we have how many cell phones in this world? We have hundreds of millions, if not billions of cellphones in this world. And how many operating systems are they running?

I mean we have nearly the entire planet is on two operating systems, two mobile operating systems. Why do you think that is? How can it be that on a planet the size of ours with as many software developers as we have that theres only two major really two major operating systems for mobile communications. And it comes back to that same principle. The intelligence agencies are actively restricting innovation in the technology space and particularly in mobile, anything related to Internet.

They want to control who is supplying hardware and software services to the consumer markets, and its easier for them to control if there are a very small number of corporations that are dominating those markets. And so its in their best interest to prevent people from being able to develop alternatives to that. So in innovation we all know, you know, the CIA has INQTEL, they use money.

Its another form of coercion. They will identify projects developing projects which are the strategic importance to them and they will fund them, and in funding them, theyre then able to control the direction of that project theyre able to control who is or isnt involved in the advancement of that project theyre able to control the corporate relationships of that project, and they are able to also, the other side of the coin if you dont take their money and you dont work with them, they are actually able to effectively destroy any startup that gets in their way. Please donate and support the campaign.

If you cant donate, which many people cant in the current economic climate, please just promote the website, promote the donation link, promote the streams, and let people know this exists that this movement exists. Let them know why its important and ask them to back this campaign. Because if we can get some successful suits going against these guys, we can really make them think twice and have some serious impact, maybe even set some really important legal precedents to fight back against these networks of agents who have been destabilizing our civil society across the Western world, but I mean, with a hundred partner agencies across most of the world. They have the capacity to commit these crimes against citizens around most of this planet and as Ive said in previous articles, thats not okay with me, and thats why Ive dedicated my life to fighting back against them.

Because I feel that we have to do it, we have to do it. We cant just get to the point where this total global surveillance state that we live in is able to actively destroy anybody who challenges it. We must stand up against it and we must do it together. We are strong together.

With hundreds of us and thousands of us working together, we are much stronger. Hi everybody, and welcome to my channel, my name is Suzie Dawson. Im an activist, a journalist and the current president of the Internet Party of New Zealand.

Thank you so much for being here tonight. This is Episode 4 of Opening the Five Eyes, Exposing the Spies, which is a live campaign fundraising event for the hash 1vs5i campaign. That campaign is the result of Many years of me attempting to try to gain visibility and spread the word about abuses by intelligence agencies against activists, journalists and regular citizens around the world. And In this campaign, I now am trying to raise funds for my newlyacquired awesome human rights legal team to sue the intelligence agencies who persecuted me for my activism and for my journalism and to try and bring a halt to the illegal activities that they have been engaged in.

You can find . hello to everybody . I can see you in chat saying hi to me You can find out more information about this campaign at 1vs5i.com 1vs5i.com I would really, really appreciate people either donating to the campaign to fund my quest for justice or to sharing the donate link to as many people as you can that link is 1vs5i.comdonate 1vs5i.comdonate Okey dokey. Last week I put together a little Twitter poll asking you what content you wanted me to cover and you said you wanted to talk about the ways that the intelligence agencies subvert all the different sectors of society. So thats the program that we did last Sunday night. The second favorite option was, Understanding World War Three, and so that is what were going to look into tonight. First, I just want to have a little chat with you guys about what has been going on with me.

If you saw my Twitter timeline tonight you would have seen that I nearly didnt do this stream tonight. In fact for most of today, I was thinking to myself I cant stream and I cant stand the idea of being on camera, and doing this. It wasnt because I was worried about the content or the campaign. I am really blessed and grateful that I even have the opportunity to run this campaign and to have a chance at obtaining some kind of justice, but I was overwhelmed for a lot of personal reasons, some of which have decided that Im going to share with you tonight. So for . There has been a lot going on for me.

So this week Nicky Hager who is a very famous New Zealand investigative journalist, who has written some seminal books about the intelligence agencies, and who has himself being targeted by the same intelligence agencies who have targeted me, managed to get into the media this week official findings that the New Zealand spy agencies had spied on him. Every time there is a major development in my home country that relates to this this type of targeting against people for reasons that I dont understand entirely I dont actually feel triumphant about it. I feel really upset about it and I get really angry, and I get quite miserable actually, as you can now see as Im practically crying on stream.

I get really upset and miserable because it brings back everything that I have been through, and that my children and that my family have been through. People are complaining that weve been cut off. Can you please confirm to me or at least say its back now? Okay, Ill just try and repeat what I was saying. I was just saying that there was some big developments in New Zealand this week regarding revelations of illegal spying by the agencies on a major New Zealand journalist, Nicky Hager.

Nickys a really good guy. I actually know his sister pretty well. His work is extremely important. But instead of being triumphant or feeling victorious or vindicated by these revelations, I actually just got really upset by them.

For several reasons, firstly because it brings back every single thing that Ive gone through and also the impacts on the people around me and my kids and my family, but also because I feel a really deep sense of injustice particularly because of the way that the media treated me in New Zealand, and because of . theres just a lot of unresolved stuff and particularly actually in relation to Nicky. I have no ill feeling for Nicky, to the contrary I feel great admiration for him and Im very happy that hes able to achieve redress, and hes able to get really highlevel support, and that people understand the dangers that he faced and the things that he goes through. But one of the big criticisms of me that Ive had particularly from media and about my situation in my case, is they compare me to Nicky.

They say oh well Nicky is targeted and he doesnt have, he didnt have to leave these New Zealand, or you know, how come Nicki is able to be in New Zealand and youve had to leave New Zealand. And on one hand, its quite a compliment to me that I would even be considered in the same light as Nicky Hager, but on the other hand our situations are completely fundamentally different. And this is something that people whod judge my decisions to leave New Zealand seem to fail completely to understand.

When Nicky was being targeted by the intelligence agencies, he had a thirtyyear long track record of internationally awarded journalism. Every single person in the country of New Zealand knows him and who he is and what he does and the risks that he faces. He has a ginormous international support network at the highest levels of journalism and politics. When I was targeted in New Zealand, I had none of that. I was not an established journalist, I did not have major political support.

I did not have an international network of people willing to advocate for me. There was no public understanding of who I was or what my work was or why I would be targeted. None whatsoever, because I had actually operated in my activism I stayed anonymous, I stayed off camera and I did everything behind the scenes. So there I had no public support whatsoever, I had no media support whatsoever.

My situation couldnt have been any more dramatically different than Nicky Hagers situation. And yet Im constantly judged in the same light or the same league as Nicky Hager, which is really unfair. When I was targeted in New Zealand, I was a single mother, a single mother with two kids living in the suburbs.

I had nobody willing to stand up for me, or to advocate for me or to protect me. I had only my fellow media team members who also being targeted and who had no resources and no ability to protect me. The police openly told me to my face that I would continue to be targeted and that . their exact words were so long as youre an activist this will keep happening to you. So I couldnt do anything about it whatsoever.

I was like a sitting duck and nobody nobody would protect me. Not politicians, not media, not the police, no state agencies. I had no ability to maintain safety for myself or for my children.

So every time that another big revelation comes out in New Zealand that does vindicate me such as the State Services Commission report that came out in 2018, and it confirmed that the exact same companies which I had been saying were doing this, since Ive been saying, since 2012, six years before it was confirmed Ive been saying exactly whos doing it, what theyre doing, who theyre doing it to. When that report came out I should have been happy I should have been like, thank God now everybody knows that what I was saying was true. I wasnt some crazy crackpot making the shit up. I was telling the truth all along. That to be honest, I didnt really feel vindicated.

I felt miserable. I felt upset and miserable. And I put a public statement out actually on that day that the report was released. And you can tell how angry I am when you read that statement.

I was just so angry at what I perceived was the total abandonment of me by anybody who could have actually helped me when I was in New Zealand. So leaving New Zealand for me was it was like, stay and die quietly, or leave and have a chance at continuing my work and telling people what was going on. And so thats the option I chose.

So It hurts quite frankly. It hurts be judged against people who have completely different situations and scenarios to me, and to have my decisions, which I felt like I had no other decision I possibly could make at the time . to have those decisions judged against their actions of people who have the types of visibility and protection and resources and support that I never ever ever had when I was in New Zealand. so thats the first thing thats bugging me, but then the second thing thats really hurting me too is every single day that Im in exile, I see firsthand the impacts of that exile upon my kids and my family, but primarily my kids, and Ive chosen tonight to actually start to talk about this. And for me, its a humongous risk. For me to talk about the things that upset me and the things that Im going through is an absolutely humongous risk. Its a risk for multiple reasons first of all, because I inevitably am blamed for whats been done to me despite the fact that Im not the person who did it.

And its a risk because the people who continue to persecute me use anything that I say or anything that I disclose, to continue to persecute me and continue to hurt me and for me thats always been a really doubleedged sword as to whether or not I talk about my kids and so generally other than saying that I have children, Ive said basically nothing about them. But the impacts on my parenting of the children when I was in New Zealand being targeting being targeted Wwre absolutely devastating. And the impacts on my ability to parent in exile are similarly devastating. The invasion of privacy is next level.

I remember in New Zealand knowing, knowing that every word I said in my home was being recorded and my daughter asking me about to tell her about the birds and the bees, and me having to sit there and try and explain to my child the facts of life and particularly the facts of being a girl and becoming a woman knowing that every word I said was being scrutinized by security agencies that had it in for me, and were trying to destroy me. It . I feel like they robbed me and my children of some of the most precious moments and precious years of our life and things that normal parents can just take for granted, I could never take for granted. And I had to constantly make decisions relating to my children . Wow, Im sorry I didnt know upsetting this would be to talk about. I had to constantly make decisions relating to my children in the realistic and practical context of us being targeted by the state.

For example, I lived in constant fear. One of the things my daughter complained about me is, she said Mum, youre 0:.779, 0:.779 hypervigilant. And shes talking about not about hypervigilant about being targeted but hypervigilant in terms of I would live in fear that my kids would be jumping off the trampoline or whatever, would hurt themselves and would end up having to go to hospital for whatever reason and that it would be used as a pretext to take my children away from me to punish me for my activism and journalism, because there are countless other cases where this has been done to activists and journalists who are single parents, where they come at you through your kids.

Thats all it comes down to. They come at you through children, they have no qualms about doing that. So my kids couldnt just play like normal kids like when I was a kid growing up. I broke my wrist.

I broke my arm. I broke my leg. It didnt matter. My parents went and took me in the hospital to get a cast on it. Noone cared.

But as a single mother whos a targeted activist and journalist, I Would literally be running around after my kids like, watch that step! careful of this! careful of that! constantly on at them, be careful! Be safe! Be careful! Be safe!

To a ridiculous degree because I . something as simple as my kids having an accident and breaking their arm could be used as a pretext to destroy our domestic life and destroy our life together and potentially even separate us. Thats the type of pressure that I, and subsequently they, by proxy had to live under as targets. Going into exile is, here are a whole other layers to that. There is the obvious isolation. Sorry There is incredible isolation.

Theres incredible isolation that we faced, because we lost we lost our family, access to our family, we lost all of our friends. We lost our entire support network in terms of social support network, and our personal community. My kids lost their friends and their belongings which still to this day sit in storage in New Zealand because I dont know even whether Ill gain temporary residency here and be able to move them, move their stuff to them.

They lost their home they grew up in, they lost the ability to learn and to speak their native language like every other child in New Zealand does. They lost the carefree and the carefree and attentive parent that I was to them when it was just us in New Zealand. Um, I used to be fun, and have fun with them in ways that I had no ability to do since because I am constantly needfocused.

I have to live in a way thats needfocused. I have to make sure that we still have a place to live in, still have a country to live in, still have an apartment to live in, and make sure that we have food, make sure we have clothes, make sure that we have all of the necessities, and to do so without anyone around me to facilitate any of that happening. And that means Im not funmum, Im stressedmum almost all the time, and that has been horrendous. And then you add on to that the language barrier and the fact that none of us spoke language, and then you add on to that the fact that Im constantly probed and constantly, and I dont mean probed by Russians or locals Im not Ive had no interference at all from Russians, but I am constantly probed by Intel agents in all of the spaces in which I try to communicate or operate, relentlessly, they want information.

However, they can get it. They want to insert people in my life and get people close to me. um Ive had to cope with that physically in the real world in New Zealand But I have to cope with it in digital spaces all of the time. And so I, really, my way of coping with isolation was to overwork. And so in 2017 Internet party campaign and 2018 unity4J I worked every second and every moment that I wasnt with the kids day and night, I did 20 hours days every day.

I worked so hard that I would look out the window and the light would burn my eyes. Looking at daylight would burn my eyes and blind me. That was how I coped with with the situation, was just to work and work and work.

And then of course my body started to give out on me, because nobody can work twenty hour days seven days a week forever and ever. So that is why I sit down from Unity4J and that is why I took a bit of a break at the beginning of this year, and my one accomplishment in recent times is that I have actually hauled my ass back to the gym and started getting in physical shape again, and started trying to improve my health by necessity. Because I cant help anyone let alone my kids if I dont do that, if I dont make that efforet and do that. So the reason Im talking about these things tonight Is because Ive been feeling so heartbroken and so vulnerable and I have really nobody to talk about this stuff with. And I remembered, I remembered something.

So behind the scenes I also used to never really talk in a personal context about Julian or WikiLeaks or anything else, but Im starting to change my mind on some of this stuff. So I can tell you that behind the scenes, I was pretty much campaigninmg for years for Julian Assange to talk more in the public realm about what he was suffering through, what he was going through, physically and mentally and emotionally. I thought that it was really important for people to understand how dire his situation was, because recently youve heard about this, you know since hes been silenced, youve heard a lot about it, but in the previous years Julian had really presented himself Im not not even sure deliberately, but he presented himself as being pretty invulnerable, like a Superman, and people looked at him like a superhero, and they didnt understand the reality of what he was suffering through every single day.

Nobody really understood that. Because the decline and his health isnt something that has just happened since the hideous Moreno government, its been going on for the entire decade. Julian was suffering in 2010. He was suffering in 2011.

He was suffering in 2012. He was suffering in 2013. But nobody really understood the ways in which he was suffering. So after I made the suggestion a number of times, Julian did actually release his medical records.

And that was a significant moment and it was a very Julian way to address the issue because he provided documents, you know documented facts from accredited professionals to disclose information about himself that could then be referenced by journalists etcetera etcetera etcetera. It was definitely a Julian way to handle it and it was a good way to handle it. But Julian like many of our men and I would say Ed also Yeah, youre one of the people who is also guilty of this. I mean I dont like to be vulnerable and particularly when they know that their adversaries are the highest level adversaries in the world, who will exploit any weakness and who will exploit any vulnerability. They dont like to show vulnerability.

Our men dont like to show vulnerability and they like to project strength and they like to attract people to themselves through invulnerability and strength and being powerful. Um, a lot of people tell me all the time that Im really strong And it puzzles me Because I dont feel strong. I havent really felt strong through any of this Ive kind of just been in a constant state of having to attempt to deal with whats happening to me in real time as its happening. Ive never felt particularly strong, but people constantly tell me I am strong and I think its because they confuse the strength of my convictions with some type of personal invulnerability or super power. And Im telling you Im definitely not invulnerable and I definitely dont have some superpower.

And Im also hyperaware that those who target us know full well how miserable we are sometimes. How much stress were going through, how hideous what were going through is. They know that because they spy on us. They were, as we now know, they were spying on Julian every second of every day in every room including the bathroom and broadcasting it live to Langley, Virginia to CIA headquarters.

So they knew how Julian was suffering. They watch, they watch and study the effects on us targets of what they do to us. We are like Lab Rats to them. They will tailor their targeting of other people based on the impacts that they gauge from monitoring the effects of what theyve done to us.

So what use is it for us to hide from the people who do love us and do support us and to care about us? What use is it to hide our suffering and what were going through? I think its not very much use at all. And so thats why Ive been . thats what brought me to the decision to try and tell you a little bit. I mean, its just been such a tiny window that I gave you tonight, a Little bit of what we go through.

If youve ever had someone really highly manipulative in your life who lies to you for an extended period of time and lies to you about fundamental things which relate to why you even chose to engage in any type of relationship with them in the first place, youll understand that when you inevitably find out the truth, which always do, that you feel like they stole a piece of your life from you because if they told you the truth Up front, you would have made different decisions. Thats how I feel about this entire process of being targeted and its how I feel about my children and my family as well. I feel like years of our lives were stolen, have been stolen and arguably still are being stolen. Had they not done to us what they did, I wouldnt never even become an investigative journalist, I would never have become any type of expert in the insane and disgusting things that they do to us every day.

They created me in that sense. They created my investigative journalist, and they created my activism, by waking me up to the evils that they do. Okay. Some person . of the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of chat messages that I can see scrolling on my screen right now . some person just said Assange has been lying to us about 911. Maybe now I can stop crying because instead of feeling sorry for myself I can go into defense mode.

And defense mode . if theres one thing I actually really love its defending good people. I love standing up for and if any good people so lets just cover this off really quickly. Julian Assange has published more information about 911 than almost anybody on this planet. You can read that information for yourself . excuse me . you can read this information for yourself on WikiLeaks.

He published the 911 pager transcripts. That means every single emergency alert pager response on 911 is published on Wikileaks. That means you can go and read the real time inside story of what was going on and on on Wikileaks. Basically, nobody ever talks about this, but its there. There is a not sure other took my head but theres probably tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of messages from first responders on 911 published on Wikileaks and if thats not good enough for you then just type 911 into WikiLeaks and there is unbelievable amounts of content from State Department cables from diplomatic documents about 911.

Now someones saying have I heard what you said answering questions about 911? Yeah I have Ive seen the article and Ive read the the quote. Now the article on the quote are two different things you will notice if you go and watch them.

For example the Irish Examiner I believe it was off the top of my head, or it definitely was an Irish paper, took . pulled one sentence that Julian Assange said out and it has been used for evermore as this pretext of: Julian doesnt believe in 911 truth blah blah blah. What he said was that he didnt want, he was asked about 911 which in itself . is a question every activist is asked because its a loaded question . because you get screwed no matter how you answer if Julian says yes, Im on board with 911 truth . then every journalist says Julian Assange is a 911 conspiracy theorist and if Julian says no, Im on board with the official story, then the whole 911 truth movement and all the activists get told Julian Assange believes the official story about 911. So no matter which way he answered that question. He was going to be screwed by the answer.

Now what he actually said if you go watch the article of their interview, is he said we have published 10 million documents on WikiLeaks which of verified facts So instead of asking me about something which we dont yet know one way or the other with a hundred percent documented fact, please focus on the documented facts we do have, i.e. war crimes and God knows what else is in there is in WikiLeaks files, please can we keep the focus on that? Can we keep the focus on what weve actually published. Now, thats a perfectly reasonable answer he wasnt taking a position one way or the other.

He wasnt saying 911 official story is correct and he wasnt saying, you know, Israel burned down the towers or or whatever the hell else. So, I do not Its just being used as a smear ever since. I had the same thing happened to me. I mean I was asked in an interview.

Every activist is asked this in an interview. I was asked in an interview What do you think about 911? And I said it is pretty damn clear to me that there is a lot of holes in the official narrative and a lot of questions that need to be answered and sure enough, major New Zealand media platform say Suzie is a 911 conspiracy theorist blah blah blah blah.

So these questions are just set up as a pretext to divide and conquer. They are trying to divide the support base. So every time I hear Assange and 911 I ask myself this person whos so interested in what Assange thinks about 911 have they actually typed 911 into WikiLeaks? Have they actually read the thousands of source documents about 911 on WikiLeaks?

If they havent then why is it that theyre more concerned about what Assange thinks about 911 than they are about finding out what documented truth is available on WikiLeaks about 911. And thank you Im going to use that as a segue to stop talking about the emotional stuff and to move into the actual content of tonights program. Thank you for bearing with me through that all of that. So Understanding World War Three is an article that I wrote in 2016.

I wrote it after a lot of study and research on the topic. One of the most interesting factors I think about this article and Ill just quickly show it to you here. Its on contraspin.co.nz is the date that I published it on. I published it on October 17th 2016.

So why that date is so interesting is that while pretty much the entire Western media was in fullblown 2016 election Trump versus Clinton Coke versus Pepsi mode, I wasnt writing about Coke versus Pepsi Trump versus Clinton. I was writing about the ongoing World War Three because it was patently obvious to me that World War Three is not only happening, but its been happening for a long time, and that the only missing piece to that is for the governments, particularly Western governments, but the major governments around the world to acknowledge That World War Three is happening to actually declare the war. So what Im going to do with you tonight is, and just to take this back to the Five Eyes, in previous episodes of this show you saw me talk about the role of the intelligence agencies in the kill chain behind the dropping of every single bomb. And I made the argument that to be antiwar you must be anti intelligence agencies because the intelligence agencies are both remotely through their networks, but also physically on the ground in war zones supporting and being an inherent part of the process by which every bomb is dropped.

In that vein, we know that the intelligence agencies are also the major fiscal benefactor, financial benefactor of war. So when there is armed conflict the budgets go up. They get more money. They get more leeway and they get more leverage.

They get greater resource and ability to do whatever the hell they want to do. We also talked . Yeah someones asking what is it? Its on contraspin.co.nz and it is called Understanding World War Three. So what Im going to do is Im going to read through the article for you, but Im also going to ad lib. So Im not just going to read straight off the page but Im actually going to discuss the concepts in it, and Im going to make this case and explain to you why I believe that World War Three is already underway. the other preface that I would just put before I start going through the article with you is that in it I study the lead up, the period of time prior to the Declaration of World War Two, and then I compare those events directly to what has been happening in this lead up to and beginning of World War Three.

I want to be really clear that I guess I am not at all someone who likes this callous tossing about of the terms Nazi, Nazis, fascist, fascism, etc etc. I think its irresponsible the way that some people have engaged in it and done it and I hate that people get branded with it just because they have some kind of difference of opinion or political opinion or ideology or whatever else. I think its um, I think its another tool of divide and conquer. I think accusations of white supremacy get used as a tool of divide and conquer. Thats not to say there arent actual white supremacists on this planet.

There absolutely are ideological white supremacists, but they are nowhere near as prevalent as claimed by certain quarters. And I would also like to point out that there is a long history of intelligence agencies. someone just said its like crying wolf. thats exactly right. it is like crying wolf. There is also a long documented history of intelligence agencies using accusations of Nazism or white supremacy to divide and conquer activist group movements. So thats another thing to be aware of is that its like its a tool for divisiveness.

That said, there were actual Nazis on this planet and they did absolutely provoke a World War and were going to look at some of the similarities in the geopolitics and and the engagements that led up to that declaration of World War Two by comparison to whats happening now. So we will get started my friends, and by the way, if I run out of voice, which is entirely possible then I will take a three minute break and have a drink and try and get it back and continue on with you. And then once we get through the article do a little questionanswer or a QampampA session with you. And just to give you a headsup I know there are people who want, are holding out for the surveillance teachin.

Which I promise, where were going to go through every single method of surveillance that Im aware of. Public surveillance, physical surveillance, digital surveillance, all the different types of surveillance. Well spend two or three hours just mapping out a big picture of all of the difference methods of surveillance. Well probably do that next Sunday night, and then I think were going to have a very special guest who I wont name yet, in the following week, in two weeks time, and were going to study the JTRIG files, which is the Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group from GCHQ, which is the UK eye of the Five Eyes, which was revealed in the Snowden files and the JTRIG documents are extremely important because they are all about the specific targeting methods of the Five Eyes intelligence agencies as pertains to people they consider to be threats, primarily in an online environment. So its all about online digital infiltration of groups and networks, its specifically about how to smear a target, how to destroy a life, through online means.

And those documents are all based on . principles of psychology as I should say and are highly technical, so I am bringing in an expert to decipher some of the lingo for us, and then some activists to talk about the ways in which those principles have been used to target them and to destabilize their lives and to harm them in real ways in the real world. So thats whats the program for the next two weeks. Okay without any further ado. Actually, Ill do it the other way around.

Im going to have a quick drink now and Ill be back in two minutes and we will work our way through understanding World War Three. All my awesome mods, if you could circulate the link to the article, that would be really cool and then people can go through the material at the same time as we discuss it. Be right back. no sound . and that is because of what is happening in Ecuador at the moment.

So the Ecuadorian people are resisting Lenen Morenos government who has been imposing the IMF austerity and privatization agenda which has already affected so many countries around the world, including in fact, very few people realize this, that including in fact my own home country of New Zealand. Also known as neoliberal economics, the privatization agenda means that from roughly the end of the 80s through until the current day New Zealand lost ownership of all of its critical infrastructure, and most of, nearly all of its state assets. So that means we dont own our railways we dont own our telecommunications companies anymore. We dont own our power companies. We dont own . many, many of our state assets were privatized and sold off, and the austerity agenda means cuts to public services.

So the shutting of many organizations that supported the public and provided critical social services. And this is an agenda that was rolled out really across lets say all of the Western world and you see it in Britain. You see it in, definitely see it in America.

It was also coupled with trade agreements which spelled the death of local manufacturing and the importation of cheap and defective goods from third world countries where obviously child labor and even slavery were being practiced. And ntil very recently until just a couple of years ago, Ecuador was free of the IMF and free of the military industrial complex of the Western nations. But unfortunately with the election of Lenin Moreno who was elected on a leftist agenda and was supposed to preserve the sovereignty of Ecuador, got straight into bed with some really dark rightwing forces in Ecuador, and began the economic destabilization of the country. So the protesters who have been Id say nearly by the millions if not by the millions over the last couple of days, protesting in Quito and in other cities in Ecuador, have been met with not only riot police and all of the riot ordinance, the tear gas and the everything else, the socalled lesslethal weapons, which is all too lethal when theyre fired on you at short range, they also have had the military unleashed on them. So there have been actual tanks and soldiers firing live rounds killing protesters in Ecuador, and sadly, but unsurprisingly the Western media have been completely silent about that, or have just made it out like its some fringe protests about fuel prices and failed to mention that people are getting shot in the head and killed by the military in Ecuador.

If you have a look on my timeline on Twitter Suzi3d and you scroll back over the last few days, Ive been constantly sharing live article from people on the ground showing the onesided war that is being inflicted by the Ecuadorian military onto its own citizens in Ecuador. Now in these types of situations it is, theres a long history of intelligence agencies and particularly, the CIA getting involved or being involved from the outset, and generally the pattern that is followed is that they will pump weapons and money, sometimes to both sides. The Syrian conflict originally started out with genuine prodemocratic antiSyrian government protests in 2011 and early 2012.

Guns and money were poured into . and infiltrating mercenaries . were poured into their conflict and a civilI dont even like calling it a civil war actually because of the extent of the foreign influence that really engineered that situationbut essentially a civil war. And the devastation thats been wreaked in Syria across this decade had its provenance in that. Now my concern is that while the protesters currently dont have arms and arent shooting back, that Ecuador looks to me like it could be set up to become a similar scenario and it also looks like it could eventually become a proxy war.

And were going to talk a lot about proxy wars shortly as we look into this article. So, Im going to screen share and were going to get started. Okay, here we go Understanding World War Three, October 17th, 2016. A critical look at history reveals that World War Two started in 1933 and not 1939 and World War Three, if it is ever declared, also wont have started at the declaration point of the war it will have started long before, as youll see in the analysis in this article. With the invocation of a state of war in the granting of war powers to the head of state, Nazi Germany was emboldened to begin the rampage of propagandafuelled totalitarianism and ultimately invasion, mass murder and assimilation.

So this granting of war powers and the invocation of a state of war is exactly what we saw post 911 when Bush declared the Global War on Terror and then extended the AUMF, which well get into a little bit further along as well, to enable them to wage this war on terror. The official World War Two commencement date of first September 1939, marks the day that England and France declared war and began openly militarily opposing Germanys aggressive and expansionist agenda. It is the date that officials were finally allowed to confirm to the public who was subsequently engaged and drafted to support it, that there was in fact a World War going on. And this is my entire point here is that just because the officials finally declare war doesnt mean that the war hasnt already been happening. But with a slew of countries already having been breached by invading armies World War Two had begun well prior to the public acknowledgment of it.

Similarly World War Three will not be determined by the history books to have officially begun until a country or a coalition of countries formally stand to oppose andor declare war against the now long campaign of invasion, subversion and international destabilization perpetrated by the United States and their allies. But nonetheless even in the absence of such proclamations World War Three is well underway. That fact is only now filtering through to the awareness of the global public.

My analysis of the 1933 to 1939 period in Germanys history has grave implications. The diplomatic and military conduct of Nazi Germany eerily mirrors that of the USA hereafter colloquially described as the US Empire, in the period 2001 to 2016. The events leading up to World War Two and World War Three are scarily similar. And then I talked about Naomi Kleins ten steps to fascism. Being: Otherization the creation of an enemy operating gulags such as Guantanamo Bay Employing paramilitary outsourced military or the privatization of military immunized thuggery which is Blackwater, etcera Now, we know the immunized part here refers to Donald Rumsfelds total force doctrine which is where he immunized private military companies from being able to be prosecuted for any wrongdoing.

He extended the immunization that the US Army and US Armed Forces have to the private sector, which is obviously incredibly problematic. The employment of domestic surveillance, which would be like NSA and facial recognition systems, etc All the types of things that Snowden and others have talked about. Arbitrary detention. Which would be like TSA like arbitrary detention. How you can be detained at the border eight hours, no legal representation, no charges against you, etcetera etcetera, The subversion of media which was a huge factor in how the Nazis were able to do what they were doing domestically and get away with it.

The abuse of the definition in terms of espionage and treason. Well, Jesus weve seen that havent we? John Kiriaku being charged with espionage for revealing the fact that crimes against humanity were being perpetrated by the CIA. And legislative suspension of the rule of law, which is pretty much exactly what NDAA has been about each year for most of this decade, being the National Defense Authorization Act in America.

But this article wioll go beyond that to look not just at the general trends and conditions, but to directly compare the chronology of the specific acts of Nazi Germany with those of the modernday US Empire in the context of World War Two and the now well underway World War Three. . 1:.940, 1:.049 The Naked Agenda: The most nefarious of acts are not the dastardly deeds waged covertly in secret ut those executed publicly in plain sight and then employed on a massive scale. So its the things that they actually tell us about and even brag about, that are even more concerning than what is happening in secret, because there is plenty that they openly brag about that is highly problematic and thats a massive understatement. Hitler from the documentary of World War Two GermanRoad to War: Hitler never made a secret of his aims.

He committed them to print and repeated them in countless speeches. He triumphed because the world was blind to the signals he constantly raised. Time and time again Hitler could have been stopped by his fellow Germans first and by foreign leaders later.

Not until 1939 did the Allied leaders move to contain him and by then it was too late to block his road to war. Time and time again over the last 15 years, the Empire has declared that it is at war. This isnt something theyve hidden theyve said we are at war.

This is a war. the world is a battlefield. This is a global war on terror. They proclaimed that there would be multiple theaters of operation. That was exactly the words they used. And that the enemies were numerous and would be hunted wherever they resided and roamed.

Remember George W Bush: wherever you are on this planet. We will find you. We will hunt you down.

There will be no borders in this war. I mean somehow we didnt take it seriously enough. Numb to the overblown rhetoric of Western leaders because they are absolutely overblown in their speech, it never quite sunk in to the global public that America declaring a state of emergency invoking war powers, dramatically expanding military capabilities and financing, employing legions of mercenaries, invading a string of foreign nations upending elected governments, occupying foreign lands and incurring civilian casualties into the millions, creating a massive refugee crisis, and incessantly lying about their motives for it, was in fact them instigating a third World War. Because when you look at everything that they did in totality, in its totality.

Is that not a war? I mean they told us this is a war. Warning signs and subversion of constitutions and democratic principles as a common thread among all tyrants dictators and military regimes, and were absolutely seeing that in Ecuador right now. When a permanent state of emergency, which Moreno has just declared a state of emergency, was declared in Germany and the Enabling Act of 1933 passed, the stage was set for unending war.

So in 1933 the legislative groundwork was already in place for World War Two. But the public didnt know it as World War Two until 1939, remember. While different in letter and inferior in scope to the far more complex USA Patriot Act of 2003 the ultimate aims were similar: to enhance the powers of the Nazi government to engage in internecine warfare on a whim, internecine in terms of Europe. Likewise according to Wikipedia probably the worst source ever, but well still cite it for this particular case. In the wake of the September 11th 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States the Bush Administration asserted both of right and the intention to wage preemptive war or preventive war.

This became the basis for the Bush Doctrine. So those were exactly the premises of the Nazis War Powers Act were to assert a right to wage preemptive war. The Nazis soon used their powers to justify the execution and imprisonment of their own people. Now just bear in mind. We think oh, we dont execute, you know executing people, well, this isnt just like jailing them and putting them on death row.

This is like drone executions of American citizens on foreign soil, extrajudicially, without them ever being arrested or charged or going to a court process. And this is manifest in the recent conduct of the Empire also. 2012s National Defense Authorization Act famously included provisions for the indefinite detention without trial of American citizens and US citizens have become targets of extrajudicial killings by their own government.

The stated justification? George Bushs 2001 Authorization To Use Military Force, known as the AUMF. On 14 September 2001 Congress declared that the AUMF was intended to constitute specific statutory authorization within the meaning of section 5B of the War Powers Resolution of 1973. And in it, and this is a quote, an initial draft of Senate joint resolution 23 included language granting the power to deter and preempt any future acts of terrorism or aggression against the United States.

Members were concerned that this would provide a blank check to go anywhere anytime, against anyone the Bush Administration or any subsequent Administration deemed capable of carrying out an attack and the language was removed. Constitutional law specialist Professor Bruce Ackerman of Yale Law School has said the Obamas administration use of the AUMF has so far overstepped the authorized powers of the final enacted version of the bill as to more closely resemble the capabilities named in the draft text rejected by Congress. So now you have a presidential administration Acting on law, that is not law. This is definitive proof that laws passed to expand the power of the executive are carried over to subsequent Administrations and then employed as justifications and expanded upon to devastating effect.

So, Obama becomes but Bush did it and Trump becomes but Obama did it and so on and so forth through administration after administration. Wikipedia states the critics of theand for those who saying other Trump didnt do it, Trump has like not gotten us into another warone of the first things that Trump did when he got into office was to declare that the CIA could make its own decisions around the extrajudicial drone assassination program, And if you go back and read the original things he decided that he Trump didnt want anything to do with it, he didnt want to have KillList Tuesday like Obama had, and sign off on the drone killings. But he was actually fine for the CIA just to handle ? themselves So this is something thats very seldom acknowledged about Trump, is that he actually from the outset of the administration increased the scope of powers of the CIA in particular in relation to foreign drone programs, which are executed from US soil I might add.

Wikipedia states that critics of the Bush Doctrine were suspicious of the increasing willingness of the United States to use military force unilaterally. Robert W Tucker and David C Hendrickson argued that it reflects a turn away from international war and marks the end of American legitimacy in foreign affairs. Both Nazi Germany and the US Empire shared the trait of justifying their noncompliance with international law and treaties by manufactured legal caveat to enable the abdication of their democratic responsibilities. And just taking this back to the Five Eyes as well.

This is something that we see with the Five Eyes routinely, which is that the string of bills and acts and legislation that have been passed to expand the resources and powers of the intelligence agencies throughout this decade in particular, are in total violation of certainly international law, Universal Declaration of Human Rights etc. But also to our own domestic Bill of Rights. So their laws are violating other laws and they dont care at all in the slightest. Germany claimed that international treaties were not adhered to by their political adversaries and therefore it need not uphold or be bound by them.

Now, where have we heard that before? The US has completely abandoned international law in recent if not Id say the last 20 years in particular, and also this goes back to my earlier point in the article, about what they do openly is actually almost scarier than what they do in secret, because they have made no secret of pulling support, refusing participation in international tribunals, refusing to respect international law, refusing to respect decisions by international bodies to which theyre signatories, and this is this is done overtly and openly. Its not at all something that they make a secret out of. The same argument has been made by Western powers about everything from the Kyoto Protocol to torture.

Another similarity is the selfrighteous contempt for established covenants covering the military contact of Nations. In 2002 the United States openly stated it would not abide by the Geneva Conventions on the treatment of prisoners of war. Likewise Nazi Germanys failure to abide by the 1929 conventions have been thoroughly documented. So once again, theyre just openly refusing to abide by fundamental pieces of international law like the Geneva Convention. Peace is an endlessly abused idealistic concept. we could probably skip this or else its going to take too long.

So this entire section is about how war gets dressed up as peace by these diplomats and politicians who are advocating war. They always do it in the name of peace and Obama was so into Hitlers speeches. He would declare hes going to do all this evil shit and hed say that hes doing it in the name of peace. Likewise Obama did the same thing in 2009.

President Obama famously droned on for over 30 minutes about peace in his acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize. This despite his administration having dramatically advanced the prevalence and use of obscene hightech methods of achieving extrajudicial killings, an extension he went further than that which was employed in George W Bushes hegemonic and interventionist foreign policy. Conquest in stages is another similarity between the leadup to World War Two and the ongoing World War Three. The obsession with strategic planning reassures these guys of their longevity yet their thirst for victory and conquest is never sated.

Remember George W Bush standing on that destroyer and saying mission accomplished and then how long was it before they were into the next country and the next country in the next country? War is an addiction for them. Once the cogs of war are greased and in motion. they become trapped in a cycle of their own inertia.

Inevitably the velocity they generate speeds them towards their undoing. They havent accomplished any mission other than perpetual war. Nazi Germanys trail of subjugation forged across Central Europe back to back unopposed and largely bloodless successes bolstered its aspirations to impose dominion over the greater Western European continent. The further that aim progressed the more murderous the campaign. Ultimately, this brought them to the doorstep of the seat of power in the USSR as well as into the North Atlantic maritime channel to the British Isles.

Photographs of Hitlers commands show him and his generals poring over a map reminiscent of a plussize replica of the boardgame Risk. Risk is a great analogy for how war planners see war. To them it is not the stark reality of their lawlessness, the blood and bone, murder and rape, mass displacement. It is a map upon which is determined the geographical control, monopolization, distribution and ownership of resources.

This also really applies to the intelligence agencies. The vast majority of the employees of the intelligence agencies arent out there involved in killings or human intelligence operations or whatever else. The vast majority of them are sitting in offices with PowerPoint presentations. They are having corporate meetings.

They are working on fudging budgets or writing bullshit reports for Congress. They are involved in spying on or monitoring targets from afar. They are not in there with a sword on horseback, leading the charge on the front lines. You know, they love to think that theyare in fact they love to employ analogies to suggest that they are some digital version of a frontline warrior.

To make them feel like they they really have their hands dirty and are at the coalface. But theyre not. They have total and utter detachment from the havoc that they wreak and then they are also voyeurs. So I mean you see what Im thinking about Manning talking about people sitting around and watching articles like what became the WikiLeaks Collateral Murder article. Like its a sport, like its a article game, like its a form of entertainment.

One of the things that made me sick about this whole Turkey and Kurd situation and Syria at the moment. is knowing that at the National Geospatial Agency, there will be intelligence operatives who are literally watching the Turkish incursion into Syria on livestream the way that we watch live streams on YouTube, right. But theyre doing it from their spy satellites and everything else and they will literally sit there and watch the mortars and the bombs and the tank movements and people being shot and people being killed and people being raped and towns being burned to the ground. They will sit there and watch it like its a reality TV show and that detachment is really, really, really dangerous.

But back to that article. I wont go through the General Wesley Clark stuff because Im pretty sure that everybody knows about that. Which was, that there was a plan to invade a string of countries and sure enough thats come to fruition with the exception of Iran, which is now the the final pillar left standing that they had intended to go after all along since 911. The plan is not about democracy or security or fighting terrorism. The plan is about control, just like Nazi Germany, which also wasnt about democracy, security or fighting terrorism.

There was nobody invading Germany there wass nobody invading the Nazis when they started invading the whole of Europe. It was all just bullshit pretext and thats exactly what we see with US Empire. Just like Nazi Germany and many other empires before them. They simply want to rule the world and these intelligence agencies literally admit in their own documents that they want total. they want to be able to see every square inch on the globe, they want to be able to maintain total control. Each conquest becomes a launchpad for the next, and my god if you dont see that in Syria, I dont know what you do.

Where did the incursions into Syria come from where did the drugs and the money sorry the weapons and the money come from? They came from Iraq. Iraq became the staging area for the Syrian war and if theyd been successful in Syria, undoubtedly Syria would have become a staging zone for an invasion of Iran. The invasion of Iraq allowed the United States to establish bases and to prepare itself for conflict in Syria.

The invasion of Poland allowed Nazi Germany to establish bases and fortifications to prepare itself for a ground invasion of the USSR. Nowadays Ukraine is the new Poland. Thats what Ukraine is about.

Ukraine isnt about Ukraine. Ukraine isnt about just dealing a blow to Russia. Ukraine is about creating a staging area.

Creating a lilypad as the US likes to call its intermediary countries where it runs its drone operations and everything else out of. Ukraine is about creating a staging area for a theoretical invasion of Russia or a conflict with Russia. The disbandment of the invaded nations military is another theme, and remember they did that in Iraq.

Just as the Iraqi army was famously and disastrously dismantled postinvasion Nazi Germany disbanded the Czech army and others. Stress factors for ethnic and religious tensions are deliberately exacerbated as target countries are purposefully divided along sectarian lines by their invaders. Now I had friends in Iraq and they told me in no uncertain terms: there was no sectarian issues in Iraq prior to the invasion of Iraq, despite the fact that the Sunni and Shia sects do have some which they actually considered relatively minor religious differences. Relatively minor within the microcosm of Iraq pre the most recent invasion. There was no social segregation amongst the common population along religious or sectarian lines.

That was deliberately exploited by the US to create that sectarian warfare, it was an absolute divide and conquer destabilization agenda. The preconditions for civil war are maximized, and this is another thing that I worry about happening in Ecuador now, to provide further justification for ongoing occupation. So once again its about creating pretext to create bad guys and fall guys and to prevent any cohesive opposition from forming or taking hold. This invariably leads to sectarian warfare.

This tactic is simple divide and conquer both Nazi Germany and the US Empire demonstrated the effectiveness of that strategy over and over again. So another thing that enabled World War Two and that is also enabling World War Three is the inaction by the international community. In World War Two the Allied powers failed to act again and again.

They did not act against Hitler when he positioned his troops in the Rhineland nor when he occupied Austria. From JohnDClared.net, in 1936 Hitler moved his troops into the demilitarized zone claiming that the recent treaty between France and Russia threatened Germanys safety. His commanders had orders to retreat if the French army tried to stop them but this time it was France who did nothing. The League of Nations, busy with Abyssinian crisis, also did nothing. Now, the League of Nations is the precursor to the UN, so this is yet another point that Im pretty sure I get into this article, which is that each time there is a World War there is a reshuffling of the international organizations for diplomacy.

So the League of Nations was made defunct by World War Two I believe the United Nations will be made defunct by World War Three. The following table from service guy? JohnDClare.net gave us this table to explain appeasement policy.

And in this table, Im going to make it bigger because its pretty important stuff, he shows the progression in terms of the dates, the years, and the areas that were invaded by Germany, and what Hitler did and what the intervention . how the international community responded. So the first invasion Britain andFrance did nothing the second evasion Britain and France did nothing the third invasion Britain and France did nothing the fourth invasion they came to terms. The fifth invasion.

They said that they would do something and then the sixth invasion they finally declared war. So at this point how many people are dead and how many countries are destabilized, and how much bloodshed has been going on, and yet no war had been declared. And this is the fundamental point Im trying to make here about World War Three, is that weve had this series of invasions and weve had the international community sit by and basically watch it happen and weve had no declaration of war. That doesnt mean there isnt a war going on because there was a war going on here, and here and here, before anyone in the West was prepared to admit there was a war going on.

Modern military campaigns of the Empire have until recent times also been largely unopposed. Modeled off the above, here is my own table of recent events. So what I did as I took this this table that this guy JohnDClare put together and rather than it being in the 30s about Nazi Germany, I created a version that is post911 and about the actions of the US Empire And again, Im going to make a little bit bigger and hope you can see it So in 2001, they invaded Afghanistan.

It was invaded by the US and Allies including the United Kingdom, and the only meaningful opposition was insurgents local insurgents. In 2003 they invaded Iraq, it was invaded by USled Coalition of the Willing as it was termed. They were opposed only by insurgents.

In 2004 in Pakistan with the cooperation Pakistan government drone operations by the CIA rather than the military to avoid sovereignty issues were opposed only by insurgents in that region. In 2011 Libya was invaded, The US, UK, France, Canada and 15 smaller nations destroyed Libya, and theres something that needs to be remembered actually, that 18 countries got on board with the US and are equally culpable for the current state of nonstate of Libya the slave markets and everything else going on there. Its actually not just the US. It was everybody else that didnt have the guts just to stand up and say no.

They will also opposed only by insurgents. But then things began to turn in 2011 and Syria US backed proxy militias and other forces engage in combat. They are opposed by the Syrian government supported by Iran and as of 2015, Russia. So this is the first signs of theyre starting to be some actual pushback against the invading Empire, just like we saw here in the World War Two version.

So we saw here that finally a line was drawn. Okay, wed had four invasions beforehand. Finally a line is drawn and then theres a declaration of war. Well in World War Three, weve got one, two, three, four invasions before a line is drawn and then in 2016 Russia the US has declared imminent cyber attacks against Russia, and Russia declared that it was prepared to defend itself.

So this is at the time that I wrote this article, this is the moment that we were at. Now also in this moment, And its not covered in this article though. I definitely I could probably dig out the file somewhere in my computer.

Well, so this article we saw, sorry, at this exact time in 2016 just before the presidential election there was the US military was posting photos of uniformed American soldiers standing on the border of Estonia and Russia holding up American flags. Thousands of tanks were openly, it was openly reported, thousands of US tanks and I believe also NATO tanks were being shipped into Eastern Europe. So there wasnt a definite military buildup against Russia.

Now whether it would be stupid or not to go into direct military engagement with Russia is debatable given the nuclear weapons situation, given the historical disaster their previous attempts to invade Russia have been. But they absolutely were hyperaggressive towards Russia, and this is, to me interestingly, this is never discussed or acknowledged in the Russiagate debate, ever. None of the stuff.

In the Russiagate debate America was doing nothing minding its own goddamn business and Russia came along and did this terrible cyberattack on the DNC. Sorry, cant stop myself laughing. our democratic institutions. the DNC! Okay, thats the Russiagate fairy tale, but meanwhile back in reality The US Empire had been staging provocations against Russia consistently and right up on its borders. Okay, so notably none of the countries in which the US Empire has intervened have actually benefited from it.

None of them have resulted in peace, okay. Afghanistan, no peace. Iraq, no peace.

Syria, No peace. Libya, no peace. There is no peaceful outcome from any of this. Active conflict remains in all of the above up to the time of this writing. Were sitting here three years later active conflict still remains in all of the above, and thats not an accident.

Its intentional. There is a glaringly obvious line missing from my table, that is the bottom line of the World War Two table. The open declaration of war by a nation or nations willing to declare war in direct opposition to the activities of the Empire. So what Im saying there is that all of the preconditions of war everything that led up to World War Two has already happened in World War Three the only piece of the puzzle thats currently missing is the declaration of war.

The yes, this is World War Three. Its the only part were missing. Weve had everything else. Weve had the campaign of illegal invasions, weve had the institution of legislation to empower these activities, weve had all of the other lists of things from Naomi Kleins Ten Steps to Fasacism, the mercenaries, and the gulags like Guantanamo Bay, etc, etc. All thats already done the only thing that is missing is for it to be acknowledged to the public by the governments that this is what theyre up to and this is what they doing.

Propaganda and pretexts. Now, this is where we get into journalism media. The inception of war is always based on propaganda.

This is true for each aggressive action undertaken in both World War Two and World War Three. Nazi propaganda is a thoroughly explored topic. I dont think we even really need to go into that because if you dont know about that Id be very very surprised. Ive recounted a lot of it here. Nazi Germany would vilify obviously its enemies even though its enemies werent invading them.

They were invading their socalled enemies. They would engage in psyops, claiming to be victims and of course, they werent the victims. The US Empire uses manufactured intelligence. Criticism of the conduct . you can see it wikth Venezuela, with North Korea, with everybody who they havent managed to invade yet that they want to invade, they engage in the same type of demonization and psyops. We saw tons of it, tons of it in Syria.

Another recurring theme for the US is that cyclic or doomsday warnings about mortal dangers of weapons of mass destruction, chemical weapons in Iraq, unacceptable chemical weapons in Syria, are the redline. But there is little mention or concern for where and how these technologies were supplied to or obtained by the countries possessing them because, guess what, it turns out the chemical weapons actually came from the United States. And that they talk about Iraq and the Kurds and the chemical weapons there I think thats something that all of you would know about also.

Ive investigated the stated justifications of Nazi Germany and of the US Empire for each of the military incursions and created the following table. So again from their original table from John D Clare. Im now modeling off that original table, but this time Im doing it about the justifications for each of the invasions leading up to World War Two and leading up to World War Three.

So in 1936, their invasion of the Rhineland was supposedly this is their stated reason their excuse basically was to protect Germanys western border. In 1938 in the Sudetenland, the unification of German peoples: they were bringing their own people together and uniting them. And they had claims of alleged oppression of Germanic people. So they were saying, you know, people of Germanic origin are being discriminated against and therefore we need to reunify with them to protect them.

They used the same excuse in Austria, then they used the same excuse in Czechoslovakia, but in each of those they werent uniting anyone, what they were doing was usurping all of the land of the province and then asserting governance, mandating governance over it. Then in Poland they said that again they were protecting Germanic peoples within Polish border who were allegedly fleeing Polish terror, and they said that pulled the Polish were terrorists. And once again, that resulted in usurping all of the land of Poland and asserting governance over Poland, and killing a million Polish people in the meantime. And I didnt mention above the further German invasions throughout the rest of the war. I just went up to the date that war was actually declared.

So now we look at the excuses that the US has come up with for its invasions over the last 20 years. In 2001 Afghanistan was about September 11th, because it was supposedly a terrorist safe harbor for Osama bin Laden and alQaeda. The end result as of 2016 the country had remained in chaos 15 years later.

2003 in Iraq, it was weapons of mass destruction, removing a dictator and protecting human rights. Outcome? The WMD allegation was proven false, millions of dead and displaced. 2004 Pakistan was about September 11th, terrorist safe harbor for Osama Bin Laden and alQaeda, drone straight strikes are ongoing some 12 years later, many dead, and to this day I believe theyre still doing drone strikes in the border region. 2011 Libya was about removing a dictator, protecting human rights.

Remember those poor, they said, those woman had been raped theyd come into the hotel to tell the journalists theyd been raped and thats why we needed to invade Libya. Sure enough, as of 2016 the country remained in total chaos, five years later now eight years later, still in total chaos. 2011 Syria was about removing the dictator Assad and protecting human rights.

But, yet again, the country still remains in chaos, millions of dead and displaced. Now in 2016 that was certainly the case. Russia was only just starting to bolster Syria at that point. In 2019 there is some stable regions of Syria where the Syrian government with foreign allies has managed to create safe zones. However, there is still conflict in other parts of the country, obviously.

In 2016 their excuse for declaring cyber war on Russia was supposed to be in relation to . was supposed to be retaliatory cyber warfare due to the accusation of alleged interference in the US election. The allegations of Russiagate remain unproven and the outcome is yet to be determined. Of course, for the propaganda of the state to thrive there must be a wholesale subjugation of the Press.

This can be achieved economically through mergers and acquisitions of the corporations that own them. It can be accomplished through smear campaigns and career disadvantages for those who refuse to toe the line and weve seen plenty of that, also prosecutions. If none of that works and theres the outright criminalization of the truth and the persecution of those who tell it.

And if that isnt Julian Assange in I dont know what is. Julian Assange was the ultimate truth teller about geopolitics and the state of our world and has been is being persecuted to death for it. So there is a really interesting case study. Im just going to tell you the story myself actually rather than reading it off the page. Theres a really interesting case study in Nazi Germany World War Three, actually pre World War Two times, and thats that theres this publication. heres a publication that was the last . Ill take this off screen share and Ill just tell you this story.

Um, it was the last publication in Germany on German soil to openly oppose the Hitler Nazi regime and to tell the truth about the crimes that were being committed, the extrajudicial killings and the war crimes were being committed and the crimes of aggression and invasion. It was called the Munich Post, but Hitler hated their guts and Hitler called them the Poison Kitchen. And they only had about a dozen editors and staff working for them, but they were documenting the extrajudicial killings of citizens by the SS. So think about how brave these people were and for a dozen years prior to the declaration of war.

I think . I want to say 1921 to 1933, off the top of my head. We could go back and check all the facts are in my article and the source links. For 12 years, they were publishing the truth about the rise of Hitler and the fascist youth and the SS and the persecution and extrajudicial killings of citizens, and they received threat after threat after threat that they would be shut down that they would be killed even, and they continued to publish. They continued to publish even as their country was terrorized by its government, even as the bodies lay in the street, they continued to publish and they refused to stop publishing.

And eventually Hitler sent the SS to ransack and burn down the offices to the offices of the of the newspaper and to seize the printing process, to arrest the journalists and editors, and some were killed and others were thrown in concentration camps. They are the epitome of what journalism is supposed to be, and of what journalists and editors and media are supposed to be. Media is supposed to be a public service. Theyre supposed to serve the public.

Theyre not supposed to serve corporations. Theyre not supposed to do what they do for financial reasons, or for career advancement reasons. They are supposed to dig out the dark underbelly of whatever is happening in either their local or national or international society and to expose the truth of it for the betterment of humanity and for the benefit of humanity.

And that Is what the Poison Kitchen did. The Poison Kitchen is the ultimate example of the obligation and responsibility of journalism. So I do actually want to and I named the people from the Poison Kitchen in the article, and I actually think its really important to say their names. So Here we are right here that is important that we name the names of the courageous.

Twogood continues: Protestors to Hitler fought with their hearts and jeopardized their freedom and lives hoping that the world would listen. That is also Equador right now: the protesters are begging for the world to listen as the entire western media sit silent. The men of the Poison Kitchen, the Munich Post included Martin Gruber Erhad Auer, Edmund Goldshagg, Julius Zerfass and others, reporters and editors of the Munich Post. They faced imprisonment and death, trying unsuccessfully to warn the world, and with the passage of time their truth rings ever stronger. Why does it ring ever stronger?

Because they were right! They were right, and it cost them their lives and they gave their lives for the benefit of everybody else trying to warn people. Trying to warn the world about what was going on.

Even in this modern day real journalists are often martyred for living up to the ideals the profession. Yet again, Julian Assange. True journalism is a public service and service to the historical record to tell the unpopular truth about nefarious power NO MATTER THE RISK!

While the perilous days of the Poison Kitchen may seem long behind us the preconditions for such a reoccurrence surround us. Journalists around the world are being spied on and in many cases illegally monitored by the governments using hightech equipment and corresponding laws that were designed for combating terrorism. The death of America . and I just like to point something out here . we hear all the time about Trump is so acrimonious to the press, and the poor press having to work in this hostile environment and blah blah blah. Im sorry Trump sending some mean tweets or like saying some mean stuff at a press conference is not a fucking patch on what Julian Assange is being put through, but we dont hear our Trumps persecuting Julian Assange, We hear, ohh Trumps being mean to this ABC News anchor, whatever, he sent this tweet or like said this at a press conference . No!

There are to this day journalists who have either lost their lives on whose lives are on the line, who stand to die for providing truth and accurate journalism for the benefit of humanity. Lets say the names: Julian Assange is at the top of the list. Top of the list.

Now talking about saying the names: the death of American journalist Serena Shim and the lack of investigation into her passing the jailing of citizen journalists who eyewitness police killings of unarmed citizens the siege of WikiLeaks editorinchief Julia Assange The litigation that brought Gawker Media to its knees the arrest and detention of Democracy Nows Amy Goodman and the felony charges against a documentary producer at NoDAPL, which is the Dakota access pipeline protests, where once again mercenary police forces unleashed munitions upon a civilian population in the United States, are all dire warnings. We might not be so far away from an escalation to internment camps, arbitrary detention and open military conflict as we might like to think. And if that seems far away this is 2016.

Internment camps, arbitrary detention, sound familiar? An open military conflict is what we are already seeing in the Middle East. At any given time the US Empire has an ace in their pocket, but as they are well aware bringing the press to heel can also be achieved most potently by harnessing galvanizing events such as perceived attacks upon the country, as with the Reichstag fire in 1933 or the Gulf of Tonkin naval incident at the start of the Vietnam War. The culpability for these incidents can often weigh a lot closer to home than the establishment ever lets on.

And then I go through and give an example of a psyop. A psyop to the benefit of Saudi Arabia and against to give me yet was him in that occurred in 2016, which people are probably now already forgotten about. If you want to read about that you can have a look at this article conraspin.co.nz, and put in the search Understanding World War Three To save us some time. Im not going to go through it now. And then I talk again about the inception of the Vietnam War being based on a false flag.

Okay, so yet another another aspect . another similarity between the leadup to World War Two and this, well, ongoing World War Three is Waging War at Home. So in December 2012. Jeh Johnson the general counsel for the Department of Defense stated that the military fight will be replaced by lawenforcement operation when speaking of Oxford University.

Throughout history the United States has used counterintelligence tactics to wage war against its own citizens when they congregate en mass to exercise democratic rights. But particularly since 2011 there has been a dramatic increase in the prevalence of military grade equipment flowing to police forces and brutal physical oppression meted out against demonstrators and occupiers. Well, it was assumed to be a forprofit driven consequence of the privatization of key aspects of the military or just harsh policing tactics. There is now evidence that stormtrooperlike riot police serving as a domestic army is in alignment with the strategic plans of the Department of Defense.

And then I cite a article that was released by The Intercept in 2016. You need to watch this article. Its an internal Department of Defense article and in it, and again, Im going to skip through this for the sake of time because this is like a 10, 000 word article and well be here all night If I try to read every single word of it, but in that, and then I have a timestamped analysis of the article but the . sorry of the article . the gist of the article is that the Department of Defense is outright stating that the future of warfare is urban, and its urban in terms of the Western world and that it will be waged by our soldiers in the future army, they say, redefining doctrine and the force while showing hordes of riot cops in military gear. So these riot cops that we saw used against Occupy and other protest movements and like were seeing in Ecuador right now, are envisioned by the Department of Defense as being not police but soldiers and being the future army that will police urban areas on American soil. Now if that doesnt scare the shit out of you, I dont know what does.

Like your military has basically decided, oh, yeah, we cant roll around the streets as the military. So what we do is we take the police forces and we kit them out like as if theyre military and then we get a bunch of exmilitary guys and get them recruited into law enforcement. And then voila we have a military, but people dont recognize it as military. They recognize it as being domestic police forces, but in fact its the military, military equipment, military personnel, according to the militarys own strategic plan.

That should seriously scare the shit out of you guys, and its already in place and it is already happening. Sorry, I just put my zoom share back up. So thats the gist of that article and I suggest you watch it. The article itself is frickin terrifying quite frankly.

And then Im making the point that Nazi Germany also had hordes of blackclad police with military equipment attacking its own citizens. The US Empire is not the first to institute that. Nazi Germany had the SS. They too operated in tandem with military objectives and made a hunting ground out of their own cities.

Then I talked about how every Empire overextends itself. I say Empirical governors always seek to expand, expand, expand. Or in terms of the acquisition the exfiltration of resources to usurp and consume. Each military misadventure overplays itself into the next endeavour. So basically things start out nice and easy when empires are waging these invasions.

Like we discussed before theres not really any resistance or its just some local resistance in the first invasions, but as the string of invasions continues the resistance builds. Resistance builds until eventually the resisting force is actually a nation state or multiple nation states acting in a coalition. And eventually they push it too far and get to the point where the opposing force is equal or greater. And thats exactly what happened to Nazi Germany. Nazi Germany bit off more than I could chew.

And its inevitable at this point that the US Empire is going to do exactly the same thing. Theyre going to push it too far and their little Empire of a million whatever, thousands of military bases around the world is going to collapse. Its going to implode whether its economically collapsed or whether, in my opinion its more likely, that the direct coalition of forces that confront them will be too great.

Its coming I have no doubt about that. And then I go right through the progression for Nazi Germany as to their overextension and the ways in which they suffered and paid for that. And then I talk about the attrition of the US allies, of the socalled Coalition of the Willing, which has actually been getting smaller and smaller and smaller in recent years.

There is in fact less and less countries who are willing to be involved in these invasions being waged by US Empire. The Allies list is getting shorter and shorter. Then I have a little bit more stuff about Russia and Germany which may interest you and talking about the role of women in war and the Battle of Stalingrad. Theres some pretty awesome facts in there. The escalation of war seems inevitable because it is so closely following the blueprint of the past.

The biggest ended indicator of impending conflict is the imposition of economic sanctions and this is another really pertinent section of this article and thats where I have a look at the historical role of sanctions. So sanctions were literally used 2, 400 years ago, thats how old the practice of economic sanctions are. And sanctions throughout history have always led to war. Sanctions and war are linked to each other.

Theres this quote if you go against sanctions, you should know, nothing against sanctions, but if you do that, you should know that there is only war left. You can sanction and sanction and sanction, but eventually it leaves you with no other option than invasion. Of course some may argue that sanctions are active warfare. Certainly the method of murder, economic or military made no difference to the half a million Iraqi children who died as a direct result of sanctions in the 1990s. Sanctions imposed by vampires, held in place even after the premises under which they were imposed had been proven to be false.

This is the thing. Imposing sanctions is always done more prevalently than lifting sanctions. And lifting sanctions as usually for cosmetic effect. They will lift one or two sanctions, but its almost like its irreversible. They can reverse sanctions but they almost never do, and thats because the goal isnt actually whats stated.

The goal is about control. Once again, its about control. Now if youve watched these shows for the last few weeks you will know a lot about the global network. The global network being what the NSA calls its established partner relationships with a hundredplus countries around the globe.

Their goal is to have every single country become a member the global network. They want to monopolize the entire planet, and the intelligence sphere, and the data and networks of every country on the globe. Sanctions are more about bringing a country into the pattern into the arms of the militaryindustrial complex. Than they actually are about achieving any tactical economic gain.

Its about supremacy. Its about control. All of this comes down to being about supremacy and about control. Okay, so theres a lot more content in this article, but Im not actually going to go through much of it because Ive made the really key points that I wanted to make.

So if you want to come and have a look through the rest of it you can. Theres some stuff about Hillary and Secretaries of State. And then I talked about . people who provided bridges between countries at contentious times.

Oh there we are, weve made it to the end anyway. So that may be of some interest to you as well. Really the key points I want to make here are that I believe World War Three has already been happening. I believe it was happening as far back as Bush saying the whole world is a battlefield and the string of invasions that weve seen is part of World War Three. Just because World War Three hasnt been declared doesnt mean that it isnt already happening.

And that was really the thought that I wanted to leave you with and also, I just circle back to the point that I made earlier on. Which is that not one bomb could have been dropped in any of these countries with our intelligence agencies and that the same intelligence agencies who have expanded their target pool to millions of citizens in countries that arent supposed to be war zones, in countries where theyre not supposed to be at war, and theyre targeting people like me who have no military background, no military training, who possess no weapons, who have no history of violence. And I end up on a terrorist watch list. Theres a problem with these agencies when they have to deem people terrorists who are not terrorists and where they bring to bear military resources, targeting systems, personnel, against civilians. Unarmed civilians.

It makes them no different than the military who are currently killing people in Ecuador. Its just these intelligence agencies kill us a lot more slowly. They kill us more slowly and then kill us more quietly. But it is the same core issue. That abuse of military resources and personnel and networks in targeting and devastating the lives of citizens of their own country.

Okay. Im going to have another quick drink now and if you guys would like to ask me any questions, please tag me in the chats and I will ask our cool social media volunteers to relay your questions to me, or Ill try and have a look out for a few myself. Ill answer questions for about 20 minutes, and then Im going to try and get some sleep because its already after five oclock in the morning here.

So I hope that you enjoyed the presentation tonight. I hope that was an intriguing talk for you about understanding World War Three. Let me know what you think about it, please I really want the feedback and I want to know if that has any impact for you. And next Sunday, we will be doing the surveillance teachin, and well be heading back to constructing our slides, which might be a bit more visually impressive for you guys.

Okay, Ill be back in three minutes. Hey everyone, hopefully, you can see and hear me again. We have got a ton of questions and a couple of discussion topics. Im going to try and knock them off really quickly.

I saw someone talking about Amy Goodman. I was disappointed that Amy Goodman kind of toed the line, with making Julian Assange a little bit persona nongrata post 2016 election. Other than that Democracy Now is actually one of the best news sources in terms of protest movements, activism events, around the world. They generally have pretty fair coverage about them and I appreciate them as a news source for that reason, and I do watch Democracy Now for that reason. However, I do wish that they had had a bit more courage in standing by Julian and WikiLeaks.

Unfortunately they were obviously feeling the pressure from their support base and they did lapse somewhat and their support of Julian and WikiLeaks in that post 2016 election period. I see somebody else asking about TPP. I was a cofounder of TPPNoWay which was a hashtag founded in New Zealand in support of the movement against the TPP. I worked on that issue for about seven years actually. Worked very closely on the issue and in support of serious major mass protests against TPP.

Ive often said that the one thing that Trump has done that I really was very happy about and applauding, was when he ditched the TPP and Im ashamed and disappointed that my country New Zealand particularly Jacinda Ardern and the Labour government that came in, in 2017. One of the first things they did was to fasttrack and push through the TPP, ahead of any participation by the United States. I think that was shameful. I think it was a betrayal of their base.

I think it was a betrayal of the will of the people of New Zealand and of much of the world. And it was a total corporate sellout. I would point out that WikiLeaks was the most significant publisher in terms of information about the TPP, they got their hands on leaked chapters of the TVP and published them at a time when nobody else had. Their reporting was incredibly significant.

They also engaged experts around the world including Dr Jane Kelsey who was the founder of the New Zealand movement against the TPP, and had those experts and specialists and dissect and analyze and report on the significance of the provisions of the various chapters of the TPP. Yet again WikiLeaks provided an invaluable public service on that. Now so the question was specifically whether I discussed TPP in terms of understanding World War Three.

The answer is no I didnt. However TPP is like the Big Daddy version of the 90s socalled free trade agreements, and I did discuss TPP last week when I was talking about economic supremacy and how the TPP was actively supported and promoted and actually called an imperative to national security by the intelligence agencies. The TPP was absolutely a priority. The passage of it was the priority of Western intelligence agencies and that in and of itself says a lot.

Someone else: on the topic of pretext of war I have I read any analysis of this development of naval bases in the Pacific? If youre talking about the pivot to Asia then the pivot to Asia is actually covered in my article understanding World War Three. I skipped past that part But if you go to their article and you CTRLF pivot to Asia, I do actually talk about that aspect of it. So you can have a read of that there. And I have talked a lot and other articles Ive done as well about that.

So I assume that would cover it off. Thank you to all the people who say that this talk was valuable and thoughtprovoking for them. I really really really really really appreciate that Someone else.

Do I have any opinion on Israel and in particular Netanyahu driving the wars in the Middle East? i.e. he was pushing to invade Iraq pre2001, Genie Oil etc. Absolutely. Israel is a major war wager. Israel constantly wages proxy wars. They prefer to fight on other peoples soil, rather than their own.

They are quite happy with their apartheid regime um, it feels wrong to even say their own soil, but effectively their own soil. But they prefer to take their fights to other peoples countries and to fight in those countries. Now I did cover off some stuff about Israel when I talked about the Two Eyes in the very first episode of the series I did an overview of all of the different collections of eyes of the intelligence agencies, and talked about how USIsrael have a socalled special relationship that is actually above Tte level even of the Five Eyes, the Five Eyes being US, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand And I also talked to about Israels penchant for these private digital security hacking companies who . I mean Snowden has done great work around there.

I would absolutely . God he did the greatest talk, I want to say, was it late last year? I think was late last year. He actually spoke in Israel.

I mean people, this is another thing you hear all the time. Julian doesnt publish about Israel. Snowden doesnt talk about Israel.

Go to wikileaks.org type in Israel press ENTER and then tell me that Julian doesnt publish about Israel. There is mountains of stuff about Israel in there, and Snowden took a speaking engagement in Tel Aviv, and then use that speaking invade engagement to absolutely lambast Israel for its private hacking companies which are supplying engineering and supplying spyware and hacking tools to governments around the world, to target, persecute, and in some cases murder activists journalists and dissidents. So I would definitely go and search Snowden Israel, because that was one of the most epic and in my opinion consequential talks that Ed Snowden has ever done. Yes, its 5:30 a.m. now, to the person whos asking. Okay, what else?

I know I just missed a bunch of questions. What do I think could be the final nail in US Empire? I think the weight of its own structure is what will be the fight . I mean, Id like to say that the final nail in the US Empire would be the people fight back against it and they dont stand for this anymore.

Because people still do have the power and thats also part of what were seeing in Ecuador right now. The Ecuadorian government is absolutely shitting themselves about the display of people power thats on the streets in Ecuador. Thats why theyre rolling out the tanks there, why are they acting like its Egypt. I would like to think its the people.

A mass of people taking about the power. People becoming aware, people becoming learned and knowledgeable about the global network and acting to shut it down. Thats what I hope but I think that ultimately it will collapse under its own weight. it relies on a perpetual growth model and eventually, it wont be able to grow any more. Theres only so many countries on this planet and only so many people to oppress and so many people to target.

I think that as they continually expand the groups of society that they target which is something weve talked a lot about in previous shows, examples of the ways that theyre doing that. I think its simply unsustainable. Eventually they start eating their own, eventually They will start having to target their own support base and once they do that there are in really big trouble. Okay, I feel like I just missed a bunch of questions actually. What are my favorite stress reduction techniques?

Righteous indignation laughs . Whats kept me going all these years hasnt been because Im really strong or because Im really brave. Its been righteous indignation. Its been because I am so pissed off that the spy agencies of my country are in violation of their founding charter, targeting their own citizens. Im so pissed off that they are sucking up all the data in respect of all the people in my country and then shipping it off to a foreign government. Which in my opinion is an act of treason.

I am so upset that military, legislation, resources, personnel, networks are being used to target nonviolent, unarmed, peaceful dissidents, in total violation of every democratic principle and all of our protected democratic and human rights. Im so pissed off about that that I dont care that Im just one woman and I dont care that they have billions of dollars and I have nothing. I will ideologically oppose them because they are wrong! They are absolutely fundamentally wrong and what they do is so immoral and so egregious is so unethical that on principle, with nothing but my voice, I will oppose them until Kingdom Come and hopefully enough other people will feel the same that they will lend their voices and their support and whatever little resources they have in this disgusting global economic climate, to push back as well.

Because I dont want to live in this dystopia and we who are the victims of it, are ultimately going to be the ones that are going to have to and I mean victims, like everybody is a victim of mass surveillance. Its not just the victims of targeted surveillance, like myself. Everybody is being traded and their private lives have been commercialized without their consent and that data is being shared around the world with foreign countries in a total violation of our civil rights. We together have a chance at shutting these guys down, when it becomes socially unacceptable to work for a spy agency.

Thats when well make some progress. When it becomes socially unacceptable to be associated with the targeting of civilians. Then well make some progress and thats the point that weve got to get to. Weve got to get to the point where its like. Oh, youre applying to work at the NSA.

Oh my God How shameful, how can you be a part of that? Then well make some progress. Aand you know I talked about like wanting to abolish these agencies and its the type of conduct that Ive seen and witnessed and been subjected to that makes me think they are beyond help and need to be abolished. However, if they were to stick to their actual founding charters, like if they were to spy on other spies or diplomats, or foreign diplomats or whatever it is that they actually supposed to be doing.

Im okay with that. I am NOT okay with endless war, perpetual war, killing civilians, extrajudicial assassinations, spying on dissidents, destroying lives of dissidents. Im not okay with the privatization of military functions, Im not okay with all of these private intelligence companies and spying companies and mercenaries and everything running around targeting people for profit. Im not okay with any of that.

But if they could take it back to day one and do what theyre actually freakin supposed to be doing on public dollars, that, in that situation, I would never have come to oppose them. I would never be taking a moral stand against them. I wouldnt know any different because I wouldnt have been dragged into their insane games, and subjected to their shit. So its not that I just think all intelligence agencies should be shut down.

I think they should be doing their actual job which are actually founded to do. Which was not to target their own citizens and not to target civilians who are unarmed and whove never hurt anyone, never going to hurt anyone. So thats my little lecture. Okay, guys, Im going to run Im sorry, I know theres a lot of other questions but Im pretty pooped now.

Ive been talking for two and a half hours and I need to take a break. I dDeeply appreciate you being here. I would absolutely ask . its really cool that people Super Chat on Grahams channel, but do know that that money goes to Graham and Im happy for it to go to Graham because it is actually phenomenally awesome of him, its great act of solidarity for him to lend me his audience. Like what a cool guy to do that.

What a cool guy to stand up and support someone like me whose work is so contentious? And he lends me 50, 000 subscribers every week because he wants these messages and this information to get out, and that says a lot about her Graham is as a person. The fact that he is willing to publicly stand by me and stand by my work and my situation says a huge amount about him. And that he lends me the platform that hes built from his own work to do it.

I greatly respect and greatly appreciate. Likewise, I want to take action against these agencies. I want to fight back and set some meaningful precedents.

I want to get some restitution for what theyve cost me and my children and my family. And to do that I do need you guys to donate. And to donate you go to 1vs5i.comdonate 1vs5i.comdonate and please give generously. Or if you cant, which I completely understand, there are so many people that are in a position that they simply dont have 50 cents you know to their names that instead you just pick up these messages, these links, promote the short articles any other content on the YouTube channel, the website, any of it.

Spread it as far and wide as you can because as you can see no media is admitting that there is a woman and two kids living in exile in Russia from New Zealand for the last three and a half years because of persecution by state agencies. They will not admit that. They will not promote this campaign.

So word of mouth is the only way that we can build something important here, and that we can break through. So Thank you so, so much. Im going to blow you a kiss and Im going to see you next week I saw one person ask will I be back again next Sunday? I will be back here next Sunday.

Ill see you next week for the surveillance teachin for Opening the Five Eyes Exposing The Methods of the Spies. Ka ki te anoa, as we say in New Zealand, and good night everybody. Hi, my name is Suzie, Im an activist and a journalist from Auckland, New Zealand. For years, Ive worked on controversial issues like the corruption of our intelligence agencies. I was severely targeted as a result of my work.

This led to my articles being amplified by the worlds most accomplished publisher. In 2016 I made a documentary about how and why I was forced to leave my country. I have now sought refuge in Russia and my situation has become public. On 882 6PR its the voice of Perth.

Its 1230 right now and Tony with you, and Im really happy we finally got through to a Moscow to my friend over there Suzie Dawson. Youre listening to a 95bFM podcast. Suzie Dawson is a Kiwi activist and journalist who worked as a member of Occupy Aucklands media team at that time. Now, five years later and following involvement in GCSB and TPPA opposition, shes seeking asylum in Russia alleging she has been spied on harassed and threatened by the Police. Welcome back to The Wire.

Now finally on the show today, last week it was announced that Suzie Dawson will be the new leader of the Internet Party. Welcome to the Jimmy Dore show. We have a special guest with us. Its Suzie Dawson. Shes an activist, journalist, former party leader and current president of the Internet Party.

Suzie Dawson, an activist and citizen journalist currently seeking asylum in Moscow. Suzie has written extensively on surveillance and the deep state and claims its not safe for her in New Zealand. My name is Craig Tuck. Im a lawyer from New Zealand.

I act in the area of international human rights. I act for Suzie Dawson along with a group of other lawyers throughout the world who act for journalists and dissenters in highprofile cases including the case of Julian Assange. As far back as 2012 Suzie has been trying to warn New Zealanders and other citizens around the world about state targeting and surveillance of citizens and the methods being used to do it. Surveillance in New Zealand, is now so widespread its not an issue of Police going and getting a warrant and doing an investigation and then it all coming out in court.

The vast majority is the surveillance that is undertaken is never going to be aired in a courtroom And by that Im talking about cell phone technologies, Im talking about lawful interceptionthe term that the companies that do this like to use. There is a corporation in Wellington, New Zealand called SSI Corp and you can google them and you can look at their website. And on their website theyre so good as to explain at length exactly what they do and how legal it is for them to do it.

And essentially they can intercept virtually any communication. If they have someone at range they can hear your actual conversations, but also through cell phones they can essentially turn them into microphones and hear any conversation thats had within the vicinity. They can see your txt messages. They can see what photos are on your phone. They can see what files are on your phone.

They can read your emails. They can just intercept all kinds of information. Any intelligence service in the world that has significant funding and a real technological research team, can own that phone.

The minute it connects to their networkas soon as you turn it onit can be theirs. They can turn it into a microphone. They can take pictures from it.

They can take the data off of it. But its important to understand that these things are typically done on a targeted basis. Not only was Suzie essentially blowing a whistle on statelevel spying, she was naming the precise entities that years later it would be proven had in fact been doing it.

And the fact that these are private corporations that are doing it, should be really concerning to us. The crowd that they outsourced it to was TCIL which was, I believe, Thompson Clark Investigations Limited. The state is contracting a private company to surveil you.

To me, thats really immoral. Absolutely immoral. Some six years later in December 2018 an official State Services Commission report confirmed that New Zealand government agencies had been employing Thompson and Clark Investigations Limited to target New Zealand citizens.

This is a private company that had essentially been instructed by state agencies and departments to spy on citizens. More than a dozen Police staff are under investigation for passing sensitive information to the private investigators Thompson and Clark. Thompson and Clark security firm . Thompson and Clark . So Thompson and Clark and they arent some of them old Police officers. Ah, yes, they are. Okay, so does that explain the relationship and the free flow of information?

Doesnt it actually seem a bit crass? Well, at the end of the day I guess what I trust is peoples intent . The report identifies perhaps inappropriately close relationships. Morning teas paid for by Thompson and Clark. Invitations to go out for drinks.

Were there other companies identified where you inappropriately gave them information, or just Thompson and Clark? Erm, there are a myriad of security companies who inquire of Police every day, for instance insurers, er, security . Thats not my question. People listening to this will think hey Thompson and Clark were getting stellar topshelf gold star treatment from the Police.

Why? Do you treat other security firms the same as you were treating this one? And how do you seriously think it looks to members of the public listening to this?

Thompson and Clark hasnt just been paid by the government to spy on Greenpeace and earthquake claimants in Christchurch. Tonight Checkpoint can reveal the controversial security firm has been also monitoring the activities of another three activist groups in Northland, Coromandel, and Wellington and the activities of at least one further claimant. Suzie has been involved at the very highest levels with people facing charges from prosecutions coming out of the Eastern District Court of Virginia in the United States. There are more prosecutions to follow, of currently unnamed persons. Importantly information will be coming out in the months to come that will provide transparency and clarity and lead to accountability.

Suppression and prosecution of dissenters cant be allowed in New Zealand or elsewhere. Thats why Suzies team is launching the hashtag 1vs5i campaign, and with your help can achieve some important victories for democracy and for each and every one of us. Episode 4: Opening the Five Eyes: Exposing The Methods of the Spies a So Im going to do something I havent done before but which I think is a really good exercise and that is that Im actually going to create one of my little slides right here for you, and Im going to call it the Access Waterfall For Technology Who gets technology first?

And the answer to that is the military gets it first. They get it first because the global network . in fact Ill say the military via espionage. The global network is literally spying on innovators around the globe, seeing what theyre doing what theyre going to be doing, working out then, prioritizing what technologies they want to get their hands on first, and or developing their own because I should mention that obviously the military has its own RampampD programs as well, but it has a very strong interest in simply stealing the secrets of other nations or other foreign corporations etc. etc. So the military has access to technology long before we do. And after the military is what I call the MilitaryIndustrial Complex.

So this is where the contractors etc. are also given access to cuttingedge technology that is not yet available in the commercial space. So Ill just give a couple of quick examples there, in terms of the military Having primary access. In one of the NSA documents, it talks about . its talking about 1990 and its talking about how the global network as it existed in 1990 already operated and had access to a multinational multimedia portal.

So they were sharing articles and picture files between themselves in 1990. Now in 1990 we were using monochrome screens and we were lucky if we could use a newsgroup. We didnt have email, and these guys were sharing like article files and photos with each other the way that we were in what, like 1999, 2000, 2001? And this is what I mean about were a decade behind.

And just in terms of the military industrial complex getting access to technology before any of us do, there are some fantastic WikiLeaks files about that. So in WikiLeaks Hacking Team files, so this is an Italian corporation, private hacking corporate, mercenary hacking corporation called the Hacking Team and their emails, which were leaked to WikiLeaks, they had marketing materials from defense industry weapons manufacturers and in those emails they were being offered access to hardware and technology, which was only available to the militaryindustrialcomplex which was not in the commercial sphere which you and I could never go and access or buy, but the access to it was being extended to corporations and companies like Hacking Team who are like satellite companies or satellite service providers for the militaryindustrial complex. So thats yet another example of what I would call Tier 2. So Tier 1 is like the military, is the top of the food chain. The militaries that control this planet and all of our countriesnot our governments are in control its the militaries that are in control they are Tier 1 for the access to technology.

Tier 2 is the militaryindustrial complex. Okay, so then Tier 3. I would consider Tier 3 would be the commercial market for the global elite. Right, so this is the people who can .ah because this isjust one other thing about that Hacking Team the Italian crowd that I was talking about a second ago They, that mailing list, just to just to receive the emails, the marketing emails from the defense contractors, it costs 8, 000 euros. Like you had to subscribe, you had to have a membership and pay 8, 000 euros just to even access these lists of technology hardware that were available for sale from the weapons manufacturers.

So that gives you some idea, again its about creating that barrier, right, like a normal person cannot afford to pay 8, 000 euros to receive some marketing emails for a defense contractor. But a corporation, a company in the military . thats a part of the militaryindustrial complex, what do they care about 8, 000 euros. 8, 000 euros to them is like 8 to us. So they use money to create a barrier to restrict that access, access to information about what even is available.

And it takes you and I reading something like WikiLeaks years and years after the fact to even begin to get an understanding about what these guys have access to and what is out there in this world. So the next tier down from the militaryindustrial complex would be I would put the global elite. And by this, I mean people with money. And Im sure like, you would have seen it because they like to show their stuff off, on like, you know whatever lifestyles of the rich and famous, and the many MTV offshoots in more recent years, and you will see in the mega mansions they have technology in their homes which is beyond the wildest dreams of any consumer.

And the reason once again that they have that is because they have money. And so those who have been whose activities have been blessed by the systems of control that run in our society have been fiscally rewarded and not only does that mean they have a lot of money but it means they have access to technologies, which you and I simply cannot afford. So yet again money is being used as a barrier, an entry barrier to access to technology and to innovation.

So after these guys then we have the US commercial market. So this is like, you know, somewhere down the track, however, many years you think about like 1990 this is a multimedia portal. Right?

So maybe 1992 these guys are getting access to it, so maybe 1995 these guys are starting to get access to it. So now its 1999 and theyre ready to roll it out to the American public and generally speaking, the American public are the first ones to get access to the first regular citizens of the world to get access to technology. Ill put here US commercial market. And then after the US commercial market, this is where access to technology becomes a Id say almost a bludgeoning tool that is used for other countries that have relationships with the US for whatever to whatever extent.

So I would put here US MICfavored partner countries. So this is where you see the rest of the Five Eyes is gettingI mean I can tell you in New Zealand, I can absolutely tell you coming from New Zealand. New Zealand, think about it, is one of the four most favored countries in theory of the United States around the world, you know, the englishspeaking countries of this tightknit group, tightknit group that stick together.

And New Zealand was always behind the US on technology. Always, we always had to see and hear about things before they ever made it to us. So New Zealand would still be somewhere close to the top of that list, but now think about somewhere like, and Im just pulling like a country name out of a hat . Ghana Like where is Ghana on the where are the citizens of Ghana on their access to technology waterfall. They are like a way to hell down the bottom, and then now think about somewhere like Russia, or somewhere like Iran . where are they on the access to technology waterfall? Not only are they massive targets for RampampD espionage for anything they do manage to develop themselves out of their own universities or their own science and research research spaces, but they are also the last to be granted any type of access to innovation from the global network.

So then we would have at the bottom here the very very very very very tail end of the waterfall as The USMIC leastfavored non partner countries, Ill just make this fullscreen. So hopefully you can all see it. So there you go for any of you who were wondering whether I actually make these screens myself, whether I make these slides myself. Yes, all of this is my own research, its my own deductions, and its based on years of research, and if you go back through my body of work and my body of articles you will discover that every little piece of information I give you here is from research that I did at any given time and wrote about in my longform articles. So Im just going to save that.

And that is an excellent screen, I think, in my opinion to show the the way that access to technology is staggered in favor of the global network of intelligence agencies, and the military and the war mongers and the war wagers of this world, and how us little regular people down here are the absolute last to enjoy the fruits of any technological innovation. Weve also seen from studying the NSA documents that there is a humongous obsession inside the NSA with what they call Budget Day. And this is where once a year they prepare their budgets for Congressional approval and there are multiple documents in the NSA Snowden files with NSA warning its personnel do not submit anything which may in any way justify restriction of our funding.

And they also tell the personnel there if they run the documents past a certain budgeting office that they will be sure to reword their requests and applications in a way which is most likely to maximize the funding that they can get from Congress for their activities. So receiving the maximum amount of money possible is absolutely and definitely one of their strategic objectives. They are obsessed with stopping Congress getting information about their activities, but yet maximizing the amount of money that they can get Congress to approve for their activities. And they have no qualms about bending the truth in order to be able to justify that We in the Western world we operate under this fallacy, this complete fallacy of a meritocracy. Were told like anybody can become a millionaire.

If you have a great idea and you work really really hard and you have good people around you. You can be the next Bill Gates. Im telling you for a fact thats bullshit and Kim Dotcom is a classic example of that. Kin Dotcom had great ideas and great people and built amazing products that everybody liked and hundreds of millions of people were using and was consuming four percent of global Internet traffic.

And what happened to Kim Dotcom? Ah, hello. His house was raided by a hundred armed police with helicopters and attack dogs and hes now been through seven years of litigation and theyre attempting to extradite him. Where are theyattempting to extradite him to? Theyre attempting to extradite him to the Eastern District Court of Virginia, which is the same court the prosecuted John Kiriakou, that is trying to extradite and prosecute Julian Assange, and that wants to prosecute Edward Snowden.

So why is he being prosecuted in the Eastern District Court of Virginia? Apparently for copyright infringement. Copyright infringement is a civil offense and not a criminal offense and yet his home is ratided, all of his personal belongings are seized, his business is forcibly shut down.

The FBI seized his domains and his web sites. All of his customer data was erased from the face of this earth, and he has been relentlessly persecuted and smeared in the media. Why?

Because the meritocracy does not exist because Kim Dotcom was supporting WikiLeaks. Kim Dotcom took a stand against the intelligence agencies and would not capitulate and allow his business to be run by them, and as a result he became a target of them. And this is what happens at all levels of technological development.

If your project shows any promise or any significance you will either be bought out or you will be destroyed. And likewise they like these monopolies to exist in the hardware and software space, just like they want to create monopolies and maintain monopolies in the telco and ISP space, so we have how many cell phones in this world? We have hundreds of millions, if not billions of cellphones in this world. And how many operating systems are they running?

I mean we have nearly the entire planet is on two operating systems, two mobile operating systems. Why do you think that is? How can it be that on a planet the size of ours with as many software developers as we have that theres only two major really two major operating systems for mobile communications.

And it comes back to that same principle. The intelligence agencies are actively restricting innovation in the technology space and particularly in mobile, anything related to Internet. They want to control who is supplying hardware and software services to the consumer markets, and its easier for them to control if there are a very small number of corporations that are dominating those markets. And so its in their best interest to prevent people from being able to develop alternatives to that. So in innovation we all know, you know, the CIA has INQTEL, they use money.

Its another form of coercion. They will identify projects developing projects which are the strategic importance to them and they will fund them, and in funding them, theyre then able to control the direction of that project theyre able to control who is or isnt involved in the advancement of that project theyre able to control the corporate relationships of that project, and they are able to also, the other side of the coin if you dont take their money and you dont work with them, they are actually able to effectively destroy any startup that gets in their way. Please donate and support the campaign. If you cant donate, which many people cant in the current economic climate, please just promote the website, promote the donation link, promote the streams, and let people know this exists that this movement exists.

Let them know why its important and ask them to back this campaign. Because if we can get some successful suits going against these guys, we can really make them think twice and have some serious impact, maybe even set some really important legal precedents to fight back against these networks of agents who have been destabilizing our civil society across the Western world, but I mean, with a hundred partner agencies across most of the world. They have the capacity to commit these crimes against citizens around most of this planet and as Ive said in previous articles, thats not okay with me, and thats why Ive dedicated my life to fighting back against them.

Because I feel that we have to do it, we have to do it. We cant just get to the point where this total global surveillance state that we live in is able to actively destroy anybody who challenges it. We must stand up against it and we must do it together. We are strong together.

With hundreds of us and thousands of us working together, we are much stronger. Hi everybody, and welcome to my channel, my name is Suzie Dawson. Im an activist, a journalist and the current president of the Internet Party of New Zealand. Thank you so much for being here tonight.

This is Episode 4 of Opening the Five Eyes, Exposing the Spies, which is a live campaign fundraising event for the hash 1vs5i campaign. That campaign is the result of Many years of me attempting to try to gain visibility and spread the word about abuses by intelligence agencies against activists, journalists and regular citizens around the world. And In this campaign, I now am trying to raise funds for my newlyacquired awesome human rights legal team to sue the intelligence agencies who persecuted me for my activism and for my journalism and to try and bring a halt to the illegal activities that they have been engaged in. You can find . hello to everybody . I can see you in chat saying hi to me You can find out more information about this campaign at 1vs5i.com 1vs5i.com I would really, really appreciate people either donating to the campaign to fund my quest for justice or to sharing the donate link to as many people as you can that link is 1vs5i.comdonate 1vs5i.comdonate Okey dokey. Last week I put together a little Twitter poll asking you what content you wanted me to cover and you said you wanted to talk about the ways that the intelligence agencies subvert all the different sectors of society.

So thats the program that we did last Sunday night. The second favorite option was, Understanding World War Three, and so that is what were going to look into tonight. First, I just want to have a little chat with you guys about what has been going on with me.

If you saw my Twitter timeline tonight you would have seen that I nearly didnt do this stream tonight. In fact for most of today, I was thinking to myself I cant stream and I cant stand the idea of being on camera, and doing this. It wasnt because I was worried about the content or the campaign. I am really blessed and grateful that I even have the opportunity to run this campaign and to have a chance at obtaining some kind of justice, but I was overwhelmed for a lot of personal reasons, some of which have decided that Im going to share with you tonight.

So for . There has been a lot going on for me. So this week Nicky Hager who is a very famous New Zealand investigative journalist, who has written some seminal books about the intelligence agencies, and who has himself being targeted by the same intelligence agencies who have targeted me, managed to get into the media this week official findings that the New Zealand spy agencies had spied on him. Every time there is a major development in my home country that relates to this this type of targeting against people for reasons that I dont understand entirely I dont actually feel triumphant about it. I feel really upset about it and I get really angry, and I get quite miserable actually, as you can now see as Im practically crying on stream.

I get really upset and miserable because it brings back everything that I have been through, and that my children and that my family have been through. People are complaining that weve been cut off. Can you please confirm to me or at least say its back now? Okay, Ill just try and repeat what I was saying. I was just saying that there was some big developments in New Zealand this week regarding revelations of illegal spying by the agencies on a major New Zealand journalist, Nicky Hager.

Nickys a really good guy. I actually know his sister pretty well. His work is extremely important. But instead of being triumphant or feeling victorious or vindicated by these revelations, I actually just got really upset by them.

For several reasons, firstly because it brings back every single thing that Ive gone through and also the impacts on the people around me and my kids and my family, but also because I feel a really deep sense of injustice particularly because of the way that the media treated me in New Zealand, and because of . theres just a lot of unresolved stuff and particularly actually in relation to Nicky. I have no ill feeling for Nicky, to the contrary I feel great admiration for him and Im very happy that hes able to achieve redress, and hes able to get really highlevel support, and that people understand the dangers that he faced and the things that he goes through. But one of the big criticisms of me that Ive had particularly from media and about my situation in my case, is they compare me to Nicky. They say oh well Nicky is targeted and he doesnt have, he didnt have to leave these New Zealand, or you know, how come Nicki is able to be in New Zealand and youve had to leave New Zealand. And on one hand, its quite a compliment to me that I would even be considered in the same light as Nicky Hager, but on the other hand our situations are completely fundamentally different.

And this is something that people whod judge my decisions to leave New Zealand seem to fail completely to understand. When Nicky was being targeted by the intelligence agencies, he had a thirtyyear long track record of internationally awarded journalism. Every single person in the country of New Zealand knows him and who he is and what he does and the risks that he faces. He has a ginormous international support network at the highest levels of journalism and politics. When I was targeted in New Zealand, I had none of that.

I was not an established journalist, I did not have major political support. I did not have an international network of people willing to advocate for me. There was no public understanding of who I was or what my work was or why I would be targeted. None whatsoever, because I had actually operated in my activism I stayed anonymous, I stayed off camera and I did everything behind the scenes. So there I had no public support whatsoever, I had no media support whatsoever.

My situation couldnt have been any more dramatically different than Nicky Hagers situation. And yet Im constantly judged in the same light or the same league as Nicky Hager, which is really unfair. When I was targeted in New Zealand, I was a single mother, a single mother with two kids living in the suburbs. I had nobody willing to stand up for me, or to advocate for me or to protect me.

I had only my fellow media team members who also being targeted and who had no resources and no ability to protect me. The police openly told me to my face that I would continue to be targeted and that . their exact words were so long as youre an activist this will keep happening to you. So I couldnt do anything about it whatsoever.

I was like a sitting duck and nobody nobody would protect me. Not politicians, not media, not the police, no state agencies. I had no ability to maintain safety for myself or for my children.

So every time that another big revelation comes out in New Zealand that does vindicate me such as the State Services Commission report that came out in 2018, and it confirmed that the exact same companies which I had been saying were doing this, since Ive been saying, since 2012, six years before it was confirmed Ive been saying exactly whos doing it, what theyre doing, who theyre doing it to. When that report came out I should have been happy I should have been like, thank God now everybody knows that what I was saying was true. I wasnt some crazy crackpot making the shit up.

I was telling the truth all along. That to be honest, I didnt really feel vindicated. I felt miserable.

I felt upset and miserable. And I put a public statement out actually on that day that the report was released. And you can tell how angry I am when you read that statement. I was just so angry at what I perceived was the total abandonment of me by anybody who could have actually helped me when I was in New Zealand. So leaving New Zealand for me was it was like, stay and die quietly, or leave and have a chance at continuing my work and telling people what was going on.

And so thats the option I chose. So It hurts quite frankly. It hurts be judged against people who have completely different situations and scenarios to me, and to have my decisions, which I felt like I had no other decision I possibly could make at the time . to have those decisions judged against their actions of people who have the types of visibility and protection and resources and support that I never ever ever had when I was in New Zealand. so thats the first thing thats bugging me, but then the second thing thats really hurting me too is every single day that Im in exile, I see firsthand the impacts of that exile upon my kids and my family, but primarily my kids, and Ive chosen tonight to actually start to talk about this. And for me, its a humongous risk.

For me to talk about the things that upset me and the things that Im going through is an absolutely humongous risk. Its a risk for multiple reasons first of all, because I inevitably am blamed for whats been done to me despite the fact that Im not the person who did it. And its a risk because the people who continue to persecute me use anything that I say or anything that I disclose, to continue to persecute me and continue to hurt me and for me thats always been a really doubleedged sword as to whether or not I talk about my kids and so generally other than saying that I have children, Ive said basically nothing about them. But the impacts on my parenting of the children when I was in New Zealand being targeting being targeted Wwre absolutely devastating. And the impacts on my ability to parent in exile are similarly devastating.

The invasion of privacy is next level. I remember in New Zealand knowing, knowing that every word I said in my home was being recorded and my daughter asking me about to tell her about the birds and the bees, and me having to sit there and try and explain to my child the facts of life and particularly the facts of being a girl and becoming a woman knowing that every word I said was being scrutinized by security agencies that had it in for me, and were trying to destroy me. It . I feel like they robbed me and my children of some of the most precious moments and precious years of our life and things that normal parents can just take for granted, I could never take for granted. And I had to constantly make decisions relating to my children . Wow, Im sorry I didnt know upsetting this would be to talk about. I had to constantly make decisions relating to my children in the realistic and practical context of us being targeted by the state.

For example, I lived in constant fear. One of the things my daughter complained about me is, she said Mum, youre 0:.779, 0:.779 hypervigilant. And shes talking about not about hypervigilant about being targeted but hypervigilant in terms of I would live in fear that my kids would be jumping off the trampoline or whatever, would hurt themselves and would end up having to go to hospital for whatever reason and that it would be used as a pretext to take my children away from me to punish me for my activism and journalism, because there are countless other cases where this has been done to activists and journalists who are single parents, where they come at you through your kids.

Thats all it comes down to. They come at you through children, they have no qualms about doing that. So my kids couldnt just play like normal kids like when I was a kid growing up. I broke my wrist.

I broke my arm. I broke my leg. It didnt matter. My parents went and took me in the hospital to get a cast on it.

Noone cared. But as a single mother whos a targeted activist and journalist, I Would literally be running around after my kids like, watch that step! careful of this! careful of that! constantly on at them, be careful! Be safe!

Be careful! Be safe! To a ridiculous degree because I . something as simple as my kids having an accident and breaking their arm could be used as a pretext to destroy our domestic life and destroy our life together and potentially even separate us.

Thats the type of pressure that I, and subsequently they, by proxy had to live under as targets. Going into exile is, here are a whole other layers to that. There is the obvious isolation. Sorry There is incredible isolation.

Theres incredible isolation that we faced, because we lost we lost our family, access to our family, we lost all of our friends. We lost our entire support network in terms of social support network, and our personal community. My kids lost their friends and their belongings which still to this day sit in storage in New Zealand because I dont know even whether Ill gain temporary residency here and be able to move them, move their stuff to them. They lost their home they grew up in, they lost the ability to learn and to speak their native language like every other child in New Zealand does. They lost the carefree and the carefree and attentive parent that I was to them when it was just us in New Zealand.

Um, I used to be fun, and have fun with them in ways that I had no ability to do since because I am constantly needfocused. I have to live in a way thats needfocused. I have to make sure that we still have a place to live in, still have a country to live in, still have an apartment to live in, and make sure that we have food, make sure we have clothes, make sure that we have all of the necessities, and to do so without anyone around me to facilitate any of that happening. And that means Im not funmum, Im stressedmum almost all the time, and that has been horrendous. And then you add on to that the language barrier and the fact that none of us spoke language, and then you add on to that the fact that Im constantly probed and constantly, and I dont mean probed by Russians or locals Im not Ive had no interference at all from Russians, but I am constantly probed by Intel agents in all of the spaces in which I try to communicate or operate, relentlessly, they want information.

However, they can get it. They want to insert people in my life and get people close to me. um Ive had to cope with that physically in the real world in New Zealand But I have to cope with it in digital spaces all of the time. And so I, really, my way of coping with isolation was to overwork. And so in 2017 Internet party campaign and 2018 unity4J I worked every second and every moment that I wasnt with the kids day and night, I did 20 hours days every day.

I worked so hard that I would look out the window and the light would burn my eyes. Looking at daylight would burn my eyes and blind me. That was how I coped with with the situation, was just to work and work and work. And then of course my body started to give out on me, because nobody can work twenty hour days seven days a week forever and ever.

So that is why I sit down from Unity4J and that is why I took a bit of a break at the beginning of this year, and my one accomplishment in recent times is that I have actually hauled my ass back to the gym and started getting in physical shape again, and started trying to improve my health by necessity. Because I cant help anyone let alone my kids if I dont do that, if I dont make that efforet and do that. So the reason Im talking about these things tonight Is because Ive been feeling so heartbroken and so vulnerable and I have really nobody to talk about this stuff with. And I remembered, I remembered something.

So behind the scenes I also used to never really talk in a personal context about Julian or WikiLeaks or anything else, but Im starting to change my mind on some of this stuff. So I can tell you that behind the scenes, I was pretty much campaigninmg for years for Julian Assange to talk more in the public realm about what he was suffering through, what he was going through, physically and mentally and emotionally. I thought that it was really important for people to understand how dire his situation was, because recently youve heard about this, you know since hes been silenced, youve heard a lot about it, but in the previous years Julian had really presented himself Im not not even sure deliberately, but he presented himself as being pretty invulnerable, like a Superman, and people looked at him like a superhero, and they didnt understand the reality of what he was suffering through every single day. Nobody really understood that.

Because the decline and his health isnt something that has just happened since the hideous Moreno government, its been going on for the entire decade. Julian was suffering in 2010. He was suffering in 2011.

He was suffering in 2012. He was suffering in 2013. But nobody really understood the ways in which he was suffering. So after I made the suggestion a number of times, Julian did actually release his medical records.

And that was a significant moment and it was a very Julian way to address the issue because he provided documents, you know documented facts from accredited professionals to disclose information about himself that could then be referenced by journalists etcetera etcetera etcetera. It was definitely a Julian way to handle it and it was a good way to handle it. But Julian like many of our men and I would say Ed also Yeah, youre one of the people who is also guilty of this.

I mean I dont like to be vulnerable and particularly when they know that their adversaries are the highest level adversaries in the world, who will exploit any weakness and who will exploit any vulnerability. They dont like to show vulnerability. Our men dont like to show vulnerability and they like to project strength and they like to attract people to themselves through invulnerability and strength and being powerful. Um, a lot of people tell me all the time that Im really strong And it puzzles me Because I dont feel strong.

I havent really felt strong through any of this Ive kind of just been in a constant state of having to attempt to deal with whats happening to me in real time as its happening. Ive never felt particularly strong, but people constantly tell me I am strong and I think its because they confuse the strength of my convictions with some type of personal invulnerability or super power. And Im telling you Im definitely not invulnerable and I definitely dont have some superpower. And Im also hyperaware that those who target us know full well how miserable we are sometimes.

How much stress were going through, how hideous what were going through is. They know that because they spy on us. They were, as we now know, they were spying on Julian every second of every day in every room including the bathroom and broadcasting it live to Langley, Virginia to CIA headquarters.

So they knew how Julian was suffering. They watch, they watch and study the effects on us targets of what they do to us. We are like Lab Rats to them. They will tailor their targeting of other people based on the impacts that they gauge from monitoring the effects of what theyve done to us. So what use is it for us to hide from the people who do love us and do support us and to care about us?

What use is it to hide our suffering and what were going through? I think its not very much use at all. And so thats why Ive been . thats what brought me to the decision to try and tell you a little bit.

I mean, its just been such a tiny window that I gave you tonight, a Little bit of what we go through. If youve ever had someone really highly manipulative in your life who lies to you for an extended period of time and lies to you about fundamental things which relate to why you even chose to engage in any type of relationship with them in the first place, youll understand that when you inevitably find out the truth, which always do, that you feel like they stole a piece of your life from you because if they told you the truth Up front, you would have made different decisions. Thats how I feel about this entire process of being targeted and its how I feel about my children and my family as well.

I feel like years of our lives were stolen, have been stolen and arguably still are being stolen. Had they not done to us what they did, I wouldnt never even become an investigative journalist, I would never have become any type of expert in the insane and disgusting things that they do to us every day. They created me in that sense. They created my investigative journalist, and they created my activism, by waking me up to the evils that they do. Okay.

Some person . of the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of chat messages that I can see scrolling on my screen right now . some person just said Assange has been lying to us about 911. Maybe now I can stop crying because instead of feeling sorry for myself I can go into defense mode. And defense mode . if theres one thing I actually really love its defending good people. I love standing up for and if any good people so lets just cover this off really quickly. Julian Assange has published more information about 911 than almost anybody on this planet.

You can read that information for yourself . excuse me . you can read this information for yourself on WikiLeaks. He published the 911 pager transcripts. That means every single emergency alert pager response on 911 is published on Wikileaks. That means you can go and read the real time inside story of what was going on and on on Wikileaks.

Basically, nobody ever talks about this, but its there. There is a not sure other took my head but theres probably tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of messages from first responders on 911 published on Wikileaks and if thats not good enough for you then just type 911 into WikiLeaks and there is unbelievable amounts of content from State Department cables from diplomatic documents about 911. Now someones saying have I heard what you said answering questions about 911? Yeah I have Ive seen the article and Ive read the the quote.

Now the article on the quote are two different things you will notice if you go and watch them. For example the Irish Examiner I believe it was off the top of my head, or it definitely was an Irish paper, took . pulled one sentence that Julian Assange said out and it has been used for evermore as this pretext of: Julian doesnt believe in 911 truth blah blah blah. What he said was that he didnt want, he was asked about 911 which in itself . is a question every activist is asked because its a loaded question . because you get screwed no matter how you answer if Julian says yes, Im on board with 911 truth . then every journalist says Julian Assange is a 911 conspiracy theorist and if Julian says no, Im on board with the official story, then the whole 911 truth movement and all the activists get told Julian Assange believes the official story about 911. So no matter which way he answered that question. He was going to be screwed by the answer.

Now what he actually said if you go watch the article of their interview, is he said we have published 10 million documents on WikiLeaks which of verified facts So instead of asking me about something which we dont yet know one way or the other with a hundred percent documented fact, please focus on the documented facts we do have, i.e. war crimes and God knows what else is in there is in WikiLeaks files, please can we keep the focus on that? Can we keep the focus on what weve actually published. Now, thats a perfectly reasonable answer he wasnt taking a position one way or the other.

He wasnt saying 911 official story is correct and he wasnt saying, you know, Israel burned down the towers or or whatever the hell else. So, I do not Its just being used as a smear ever since. I had the same thing happened to me. I mean I was asked in an interview. Every activist is asked this in an interview.

I was asked in an interview What do you think about 911? And I said it is pretty damn clear to me that there is a lot of holes in the official narrative and a lot of questions that need to be answered and sure enough, major New Zealand media platform say Suzie is a 911 conspiracy theorist blah blah blah blah. So these questions are just set up as a pretext to divide and conquer. They are trying to divide the support base. So every time I hear Assange and 911 I ask myself this person whos so interested in what Assange thinks about 911 have they actually typed 911 into WikiLeaks?

Have they actually read the thousands of source documents about 911 on WikiLeaks? If they havent then why is it that theyre more concerned about what Assange thinks about 911 than they are about finding out what documented truth is available on WikiLeaks about 911. And thank you Im going to use that as a segue to stop talking about the emotional stuff and to move into the actual content of tonights program.

Thank you for bearing with me through that all of that. So Understanding World War Three is an article that I wrote in 2016. I wrote it after a lot of study and research on the topic. One of the most interesting factors I think about this article and Ill just quickly show it to you here.

Its on contraspin.co.nz is the date that I published it on. I published it on October 17th 2016. So why that date is so interesting is that while pretty much the entire Western media was in fullblown 2016 election Trump versus Clinton Coke versus Pepsi mode, I wasnt writing about Coke versus Pepsi Trump versus Clinton. I was writing about the ongoing World War Three because it was patently obvious to me that World War Three is not only happening, but its been happening for a long time, and that the only missing piece to that is for the governments, particularly Western governments, but the major governments around the world to acknowledge That World War Three is happening to actually declare the war.

So what Im going to do with you tonight is, and just to take this back to the Five Eyes, in previous episodes of this show you saw me talk about the role of the intelligence agencies in the kill chain behind the dropping of every single bomb. And I made the argument that to be antiwar you must be anti intelligence agencies because the intelligence agencies are both remotely through their networks, but also physically on the ground in war zones supporting and being an inherent part of the process by which every bomb is dropped. In that vein, we know that the intelligence agencies are also the major fiscal benefactor, financial benefactor of war. So when there is armed conflict the budgets go up. They get more money.

They get more leeway and they get more leverage. They get greater resource and ability to do whatever the hell they want to do. We also talked . Yeah someones asking what is it? Its on contraspin.co.nz and it is called Understanding World War Three.

So what Im going to do is Im going to read through the article for you, but Im also going to ad lib. So Im not just going to read straight off the page but Im actually going to discuss the concepts in it, and Im going to make this case and explain to you why I believe that World War Three is already underway. the other preface that I would just put before I start going through the article with you is that in it I study the lead up, the period of time prior to the Declaration of World War Two, and then I compare those events directly to what has been happening in this lead up to and beginning of World War Three. I want to be really clear that I guess I am not at all someone who likes this callous tossing about of the terms Nazi, Nazis, fascist, fascism, etc etc. I think its irresponsible the way that some people have engaged in it and done it and I hate that people get branded with it just because they have some kind of difference of opinion or political opinion or ideology or whatever else.

I think its um, I think its another tool of divide and conquer. I think accusations of white supremacy get used as a tool of divide and conquer. Thats not to say there arent actual white supremacists on this planet. There absolutely are ideological white supremacists, but they are nowhere near as prevalent as claimed by certain quarters.

And I would also like to point out that there is a long history of intelligence agencies. someone just said its like crying wolf. thats exactly right. it is like crying wolf. There is also a long documented history of intelligence agencies using accusations of Nazism or white supremacy to divide and conquer activist group movements. So thats another thing to be aware of is that its like its a tool for divisiveness.

That said, there were actual Nazis on this planet and they did absolutely provoke a World War and were going to look at some of the similarities in the geopolitics and and the engagements that led up to that declaration of World War Two by comparison to whats happening now. So we will get started my friends, and by the way, if I run out of voice, which is entirely possible then I will take a three minute break and have a drink and try and get it back and continue on with you. And then once we get through the article do a little questionanswer or a QampampA session with you. And just to give you a headsup I know there are people who want, are holding out for the surveillance teachin.

Which I promise, where were going to go through every single method of surveillance that Im aware of. Public surveillance, physical surveillance, digital surveillance, all the different types of surveillance. Well spend two or three hours just mapping out a big picture of all of the difference methods of surveillance. Well probably do that next Sunday night, and then I think were going to have a very special guest who I wont name yet, in the following week, in two weeks time, and were going to study the JTRIG files, which is the Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group from GCHQ, which is the UK eye of the Five Eyes, which was revealed in the Snowden files and the JTRIG documents are extremely important because they are all about the specific targeting methods of the Five Eyes intelligence agencies as pertains to people they consider to be threats, primarily in an online environment.

So its all about online digital infiltration of groups and networks, its specifically about how to smear a target, how to destroy a life, through online means. And those documents are all based on . principles of psychology as I should say and are highly technical, so I am bringing in an expert to decipher some of the lingo for us, and then some activists to talk about the ways in which those principles have been used to target them and to destabilize their lives and to harm them in real ways in the real world. So thats whats the program for the next two weeks. Okay without any further ado. Actually, Ill do it the other way around.

Im going to have a quick drink now and Ill be back in two minutes and we will work our way through understanding World War Three. All my awesome mods, if you could circulate the link to the article, that would be really cool and then people can go through the material at the same time as we discuss it. Be right back. no sound . and that is because of what is happening in Ecuador at the moment. So the Ecuadorian people are resisting Lenen Morenos government who has been imposing the IMF austerity and privatization agenda which has already affected so many countries around the world, including in fact, very few people realize this, that including in fact my own home country of New Zealand.

Also known as neoliberal economics, the privatization agenda means that from roughly the end of the 80s through until the current day New Zealand lost ownership of all of its critical infrastructure, and most of, nearly all of its state assets. So that means we dont own our railways we dont own our telecommunications companies anymore. We dont own our power companies.

We dont own . many, many of our state assets were privatized and sold off, and the austerity agenda means cuts to public services. So the shutting of many organizations that supported the public and provided critical social services. And this is an agenda that was rolled out really across lets say all of the Western world and you see it in Britain. You see it in, definitely see it in America.

It was also coupled with trade agreements which spelled the death of local manufacturing and the importation of cheap and defective goods from third world countries where obviously child labor and even slavery were being practiced. And ntil very recently until just a couple of years ago, Ecuador was free of the IMF and free of the military industrial complex of the Western nations. But unfortunately with the election of Lenin Moreno who was elected on a leftist agenda and was supposed to preserve the sovereignty of Ecuador, got straight into bed with some really dark rightwing forces in Ecuador, and began the economic destabilization of the country.

So the protesters who have been Id say nearly by the millions if not by the millions over the last couple of days, protesting in Quito and in other cities in Ecuador, have been met with not only riot police and all of the riot ordinance, the tear gas and the everything else, the socalled lesslethal weapons, which is all too lethal when theyre fired on you at short range, they also have had the military unleashed on them. So there have been actual tanks and soldiers firing live rounds killing protesters in Ecuador, and sadly, but unsurprisingly the Western media have been completely silent about that, or have just made it out like its some fringe protests about fuel prices and failed to mention that people are getting shot in the head and killed by the military in Ecuador. If you have a look on my timeline on Twitter Suzi3d and you scroll back over the last few days, Ive been constantly sharing live article from people on the ground showing the onesided war that is being inflicted by the Ecuadorian military onto its own citizens in Ecuador.

Now in these types of situations it is, theres a long history of intelligence agencies and particularly, the CIA getting involved or being involved from the outset, and generally the pattern that is followed is that they will pump weapons and money, sometimes to both sides. The Syrian conflict originally started out with genuine prodemocratic antiSyrian government protests in 2011 and early 2012. Guns and money were poured into . and infiltrating mercenaries . were poured into their conflict and a civilI dont even like calling it a civil war actually because of the extent of the foreign influence that really engineered that situationbut essentially a civil war. And the devastation thats been wreaked in Syria across this decade had its provenance in that.

Now my concern is that while the protesters currently dont have arms and arent shooting back, that Ecuador looks to me like it could be set up to become a similar scenario and it also looks like it could eventually become a proxy war. And were going to talk a lot about proxy wars shortly as we look into this article. So, Im going to screen share and were going to get started.

Okay, here we go Understanding World War Three, October 17th, 2016. A critical look at history reveals that World War Two started in 1933 and not 1939 and World War Three, if it is ever declared, also wont have started at the declaration point of the war it will have started long before, as youll see in the analysis in this article. With the invocation of a state of war in the granting of war powers to the head of state, Nazi Germany was emboldened to begin the rampage of propagandafuelled totalitarianism and ultimately invasion, mass murder and assimilation. So this granting of war powers and the invocation of a state of war is exactly what we saw post 911 when Bush declared the Global War on Terror and then extended the AUMF, which well get into a little bit further along as well, to enable them to wage this war on terror.

The official World War Two commencement date of first September 1939, marks the day that England and France declared war and began openly militarily opposing Germanys aggressive and expansionist agenda. It is the date that officials were finally allowed to confirm to the public who was subsequently engaged and drafted to support it, that there was in fact a World War going on. And this is my entire point here is that just because the officials finally declare war doesnt mean that the war hasnt already been happening. But with a slew of countries already having been breached by invading armies World War Two had begun well prior to the public acknowledgment of it.

Similarly World War Three will not be determined by the history books to have officially begun until a country or a coalition of countries formally stand to oppose andor declare war against the now long campaign of invasion, subversion and international destabilization perpetrated by the United States and their allies. But nonetheless even in the absence of such proclamations World War Three is well underway. That fact is only now filtering through to the awareness of the global public. My analysis of the 1933 to 1939 period in Germanys history has grave implications. The diplomatic and military conduct of Nazi Germany eerily mirrors that of the USA hereafter colloquially described as the US Empire, in the period 2001 to 2016.

The events leading up to World War Two and World War Three are scarily similar. And then I talked about Naomi Kleins ten steps to fascism. Being: Otherization the creation of an enemy operating gulags such as Guantanamo Bay Employing paramilitary outsourced military or the privatization of military immunized thuggery which is Blackwater, etcera Now, we know the immunized part here refers to Donald Rumsfelds total force doctrine which is where he immunized private military companies from being able to be prosecuted for any wrongdoing. He extended the immunization that the US Army and US Armed Forces have to the private sector, which is obviously incredibly problematic.

The employment of domestic surveillance, which would be like NSA and facial recognition systems, etc All the types of things that Snowden and others have talked about. Arbitrary detention. Which would be like TSA like arbitrary detention. How you can be detained at the border eight hours, no legal representation, no charges against you, etcetera etcetera, The subversion of media which was a huge factor in how the Nazis were able to do what they were doing domestically and get away with it. The abuse of the definition in terms of espionage and treason.

Well, Jesus weve seen that havent we? John Kiriaku being charged with espionage for revealing the fact that crimes against humanity were being perpetrated by the CIA. And legislative suspension of the rule of law, which is pretty much exactly what NDAA has been about each year for most of this decade, being the National Defense Authorization Act in America. But this article wioll go beyond that to look not just at the general trends and conditions, but to directly compare the chronology of the specific acts of Nazi Germany with those of the modernday US Empire in the context of World War Two and the now well underway World War Three. . 1:.940, 1:.049 The Naked Agenda: The most nefarious of acts are not the dastardly deeds waged covertly in secret ut those executed publicly in plain sight and then employed on a massive scale. So its the things that they actually tell us about and even brag about, that are even more concerning than what is happening in secret, because there is plenty that they openly brag about that is highly problematic and thats a massive understatement.

Hitler from the documentary of World War Two GermanRoad to War: Hitler never made a secret of his aims. He committed them to print and repeated them in countless speeches. He triumphed because the world was blind to the signals he constantly raised. Time and time again Hitler could have been stopped by his fellow Germans first and by foreign leaders later. Not until 1939 did the Allied leaders move to contain him and by then it was too late to block his road to war.

Time and time again over the last 15 years, the Empire has declared that it is at war. This isnt something theyve hidden theyve said we are at war. This is a war. the world is a battlefield. This is a global war on terror. They proclaimed that there would be multiple theaters of operation.

That was exactly the words they used. And that the enemies were numerous and would be hunted wherever they resided and roamed. Remember George W Bush: wherever you are on this planet. We will find you.

We will hunt you down. There will be no borders in this war. I mean somehow we didnt take it seriously enough. Numb to the overblown rhetoric of Western leaders because they are absolutely overblown in their speech, it never quite sunk in to the global public that America declaring a state of emergency invoking war powers, dramatically expanding military capabilities and financing, employing legions of mercenaries, invading a string of foreign nations upending elected governments, occupying foreign lands and incurring civilian casualties into the millions, creating a massive refugee crisis, and incessantly lying about their motives for it, was in fact them instigating a third World War. Because when you look at everything that they did in totality, in its totality.

Is that not a war? I mean they told us this is a war. Warning signs and subversion of constitutions and democratic principles as a common thread among all tyrants dictators and military regimes, and were absolutely seeing that in Ecuador right now.

When a permanent state of emergency, which Moreno has just declared a state of emergency, was declared in Germany and the Enabling Act of 1933 passed, the stage was set for unending war. So in 1933 the legislative groundwork was already in place for World War Two. But the public didnt know it as World War Two until 1939, remember. While different in letter and inferior in scope to the far more complex USA Patriot Act of 2003 the ultimate aims were similar: to enhance the powers of the Nazi government to engage in internecine warfare on a whim, internecine in terms of Europe. Likewise according to Wikipedia probably the worst source ever, but well still cite it for this particular case.

In the wake of the September 11th 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States the Bush Administration asserted both of right and the intention to wage preemptive war or preventive war. This became the basis for the Bush Doctrine. So those were exactly the premises of the Nazis War Powers Act were to assert a right to wage preemptive war. The Nazis soon used their powers to justify the execution and imprisonment of their own people.

Now just bear in mind. We think oh, we dont execute, you know executing people, well, this isnt just like jailing them and putting them on death row. This is like drone executions of American citizens on foreign soil, extrajudicially, without them ever being arrested or charged or going to a court process. And this is manifest in the recent conduct of the Empire also. 2012s National Defense Authorization Act famously included provisions for the indefinite detention without trial of American citizens and US citizens have become targets of extrajudicial killings by their own government.

The stated justification? George Bushs 2001 Authorization To Use Military Force, known as the AUMF. On 14 September 2001 Congress declared that the AUMF was intended to constitute specific statutory authorization within the meaning of section 5B of the War Powers Resolution of 1973.

And in it, and this is a quote, an initial draft of Senate joint resolution 23 included language granting the power to deter and preempt any future acts of terrorism or aggression against the United States. Members were concerned that this would provide a blank check to go anywhere anytime, against anyone the Bush Administration or any subsequent Administration deemed capable of carrying out an attack and the language was removed. Constitutional law specialist Professor Bruce Ackerman of Yale Law School has said the Obamas administration use of the AUMF has so far overstepped the authorized powers of the final enacted version of the bill as to more closely resemble the capabilities named in the draft text rejected by Congress.

So now you have a presidential administration Acting on law, that is not law. This is definitive proof that laws passed to expand the power of the executive are carried over to subsequent Administrations and then employed as justifications and expanded upon to devastating effect. So, Obama becomes but Bush did it and Trump becomes but Obama did it and so on and so forth through administration after administration. Wikipedia states the critics of theand for those who saying other Trump didnt do it, Trump has like not gotten us into another warone of the first things that Trump did when he got into office was to declare that the CIA could make its own decisions around the extrajudicial drone assassination program, And if you go back and read the original things he decided that he Trump didnt want anything to do with it, he didnt want to have KillList Tuesday like Obama had, and sign off on the drone killings. But he was actually fine for the CIA just to handle ? themselves So this is something thats very seldom acknowledged about Trump, is that he actually from the outset of the administration increased the scope of powers of the CIA in particular in relation to foreign drone programs, which are executed from US soil I might add.

Wikipedia states that critics of the Bush Doctrine were suspicious of the increasing willingness of the United States to use military force unilaterally. Robert W Tucker and David C Hendrickson argued that it reflects a turn away from international war and marks the end of American legitimacy in foreign affairs. Both Nazi Germany and the US Empire shared the trait of justifying their noncompliance with international law and treaties by manufactured legal caveat to enable the abdication of their democratic responsibilities. And just taking this back to the Five Eyes as well.

This is something that we see with the Five Eyes routinely, which is that the string of bills and acts and legislation that have been passed to expand the resources and powers of the intelligence agencies throughout this decade in particular, are in total violation of certainly international law, Universal Declaration of Human Rights etc. But also to our own domestic Bill of Rights. So their laws are violating other laws and they dont care at all in the slightest. Germany claimed that international treaties were not adhered to by their political adversaries and therefore it need not uphold or be bound by them.

Now, where have we heard that before? The US has completely abandoned international law in recent if not Id say the last 20 years in particular, and also this goes back to my earlier point in the article, about what they do openly is actually almost scarier than what they do in secret, because they have made no secret of pulling support, refusing participation in international tribunals, refusing to respect international law, refusing to respect decisions by international bodies to which theyre signatories, and this is this is done overtly and openly. Its not at all something that they make a secret out of.

The same argument has been made by Western powers about everything from the Kyoto Protocol to torture. Another similarity is the selfrighteous contempt for established covenants covering the military contact of Nations. In 2002 the United States openly stated it would not abide by the Geneva Conventions on the treatment of prisoners of war. Likewise Nazi Germanys failure to abide by the 1929 conventions have been thoroughly documented.

So once again, theyre just openly refusing to abide by fundamental pieces of international law like the Geneva Convention. Peace is an endlessly abused idealistic concept. we could probably skip this or else its going to take too long. So this entire section is about how war gets dressed up as peace by these diplomats and politicians who are advocating war. They always do it in the name of peace and Obama was so into Hitlers speeches.

He would declare hes going to do all this evil shit and hed say that hes doing it in the name of peace. Likewise Obama did the same thing in 2009. President Obama famously droned on for over 30 minutes about peace in his acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize.

This despite his administration having dramatically advanced the prevalence and use of obscene hightech methods of achieving extrajudicial killings, an extension he went further than that which was employed in George W Bushes hegemonic and interventionist foreign policy. Conquest in stages is another similarity between the leadup to World War Two and the ongoing World War Three. The obsession with strategic planning reassures these guys of their longevity yet their thirst for victory and conquest is never sated. Remember George W Bush standing on that destroyer and saying mission accomplished and then how long was it before they were into the next country and the next country in the next country?

War is an addiction for them. Once the cogs of war are greased and in motion. they become trapped in a cycle of their own inertia. Inevitably the velocity they generate speeds them towards their undoing. They havent accomplished any mission other than perpetual war. Nazi Germanys trail of subjugation forged across Central Europe back to back unopposed and largely bloodless successes bolstered its aspirations to impose dominion over the greater Western European continent.

The further that aim progressed the more murderous the campaign. Ultimately, this brought them to the doorstep of the seat of power in the USSR as well as into the North Atlantic maritime channel to the British Isles. Photographs of Hitlers commands show him and his generals poring over a map reminiscent of a plussize replica of the boardgame Risk. Risk is a great analogy for how war planners see war. To them it is not the stark reality of their lawlessness, the blood and bone, murder and rape, mass displacement.

It is a map upon which is determined the geographical control, monopolization, distribution and ownership of resources. This also really applies to the intelligence agencies. The vast majority of the employees of the intelligence agencies arent out there involved in killings or human intelligence operations or whatever else. The vast majority of them are sitting in offices with PowerPoint presentations. They are having corporate meetings.

They are working on fudging budgets or writing bullshit reports for Congress. They are involved in spying on or monitoring targets from afar. They are not in there with a sword on horseback, leading the charge on the front lines.

You know, they love to think that theyare in fact they love to employ analogies to suggest that they are some digital version of a frontline warrior. To make them feel like they they really have their hands dirty and are at the coalface. But theyre not.

They have total and utter detachment from the havoc that they wreak and then they are also voyeurs. So I mean you see what Im thinking about Manning talking about people sitting around and watching articles like what became the WikiLeaks Collateral Murder article. Like its a sport, like its a article game, like its a form of entertainment. One of the things that made me sick about this whole Turkey and Kurd situation and Syria at the moment. is knowing that at the National Geospatial Agency, there will be intelligence operatives who are literally watching the Turkish incursion into Syria on livestream the way that we watch live streams on YouTube, right. But theyre doing it from their spy satellites and everything else and they will literally sit there and watch the mortars and the bombs and the tank movements and people being shot and people being killed and people being raped and towns being burned to the ground.

They will sit there and watch it like its a reality TV show and that detachment is really, really, really dangerous. But back to that article. I wont go through the General Wesley Clark stuff because Im pretty sure that everybody knows about that. Which was, that there was a plan to invade a string of countries and sure enough thats come to fruition with the exception of Iran, which is now the the final pillar left standing that they had intended to go after all along since 911. The plan is not about democracy or security or fighting terrorism.

The plan is about control, just like Nazi Germany, which also wasnt about democracy, security or fighting terrorism. There was nobody invading Germany there wass nobody invading the Nazis when they started invading the whole of Europe. It was all just bullshit pretext and thats exactly what we see with US Empire. Just like Nazi Germany and many other empires before them.

They simply want to rule the world and these intelligence agencies literally admit in their own documents that they want total. they want to be able to see every square inch on the globe, they want to be able to maintain total control. Each conquest becomes a launchpad for the next, and my god if you dont see that in Syria, I dont know what you do. Where did the incursions into Syria come from where did the drugs and the money sorry the weapons and the money come from? They came from Iraq. Iraq became the staging area for the Syrian war and if theyd been successful in Syria, undoubtedly Syria would have become a staging zone for an invasion of Iran.

The invasion of Iraq allowed the United States to establish bases and to prepare itself for conflict in Syria. The invasion of Poland allowed Nazi Germany to establish bases and fortifications to prepare itself for a ground invasion of the USSR. Nowadays Ukraine is the new Poland. Thats what Ukraine is about.

Ukraine isnt about Ukraine. Ukraine isnt about just dealing a blow to Russia. Ukraine is about creating a staging area. Creating a lilypad as the US likes to call its intermediary countries where it runs its drone operations and everything else out of. Ukraine is about creating a staging area for a theoretical invasion of Russia or a conflict with Russia.

The disbandment of the invaded nations military is another theme, and remember they did that in Iraq. Just as the Iraqi army was famously and disastrously dismantled postinvasion Nazi Germany disbanded the Czech army and others. Stress factors for ethnic and religious tensions are deliberately exacerbated as target countries are purposefully divided along sectarian lines by their invaders. Now I had friends in Iraq and they told me in no uncertain terms: there was no sectarian issues in Iraq prior to the invasion of Iraq, despite the fact that the Sunni and Shia sects do have some which they actually considered relatively minor religious differences. Relatively minor within the microcosm of Iraq pre the most recent invasion.

There was no social segregation amongst the common population along religious or sectarian lines. That was deliberately exploited by the US to create that sectarian warfare, it was an absolute divide and conquer destabilization agenda. The preconditions for civil war are maximized, and this is another thing that I worry about happening in Ecuador now, to provide further justification for ongoing occupation. So once again its about creating pretext to create bad guys and fall guys and to prevent any cohesive opposition from forming or taking hold. This invariably leads to sectarian warfare.

This tactic is simple divide and conquer both Nazi Germany and the US Empire demonstrated the effectiveness of that strategy over and over again. So another thing that enabled World War Two and that is also enabling World War Three is the inaction by the international community. In World War Two the Allied powers failed to act again and again.

They did not act against Hitler when he positioned his troops in the Rhineland nor when he occupied Austria. From JohnDClared.net, in 1936 Hitler moved his troops into the demilitarized zone claiming that the recent treaty between France and Russia threatened Germanys safety. His commanders had orders to retreat if the French army tried to stop them but this time it was France who did nothing. The League of Nations, busy with Abyssinian crisis, also did nothing.

Now, the League of Nations is the precursor to the UN, so this is yet another point that Im pretty sure I get into this article, which is that each time there is a World War there is a reshuffling of the international organizations for diplomacy. So the League of Nations was made defunct by World War Two I believe the United Nations will be made defunct by World War Three. The following table from service guy? JohnDClare.net gave us this table to explain appeasement policy. And in this table, Im going to make it bigger because its pretty important stuff, he shows the progression in terms of the dates, the years, and the areas that were invaded by Germany, and what Hitler did and what the intervention . how the international community responded.

So the first invasion Britain andFrance did nothing the second evasion Britain and France did nothing the third invasion Britain and France did nothing the fourth invasion they came to terms. The fifth invasion. They said that they would do something and then the sixth invasion they finally declared war. So at this point how many people are dead and how many countries are destabilized, and how much bloodshed has been going on, and yet no war had been declared.

And this is the fundamental point Im trying to make here about World War Three, is that weve had this series of invasions and weve had the international community sit by and basically watch it happen and weve had no declaration of war. That doesnt mean there isnt a war going on because there was a war going on here, and here and here, before anyone in the West was prepared to admit there was a war going on. Modern military campaigns of the Empire have until recent times also been largely unopposed.

Modeled off the above, here is my own table of recent events. So what I did as I took this this table that this guy JohnDClare put together and rather than it being in the 30s about Nazi Germany, I created a version that is post911 and about the actions of the US Empire And again, Im going to make a little bit bigger and hope you can see it So in 2001, they invaded Afghanistan. It was invaded by the US and Allies including the United Kingdom, and the only meaningful opposition was insurgents local insurgents. In 2003 they invaded Iraq, it was invaded by USled Coalition of the Willing as it was termed. They were opposed only by insurgents.

In 2004 in Pakistan with the cooperation Pakistan government drone operations by the CIA rather than the military to avoid sovereignty issues were opposed only by insurgents in that region. In 2011 Libya was invaded, The US, UK, France, Canada and 15 smaller nations destroyed Libya, and theres something that needs to be remembered actually, that 18 countries got on board with the US and are equally culpable for the current state of nonstate of Libya the slave markets and everything else going on there. Its actually not just the US.

It was everybody else that didnt have the guts just to stand up and say no. They will also opposed only by insurgents. But then things began to turn in 2011 and Syria US backed proxy militias and other forces engage in combat.

They are opposed by the Syrian government supported by Iran and as of 2015, Russia. So this is the first signs of theyre starting to be some actual pushback against the invading Empire, just like we saw here in the World War Two version. So we saw here that finally a line was drawn. Okay, wed had four invasions beforehand.

Finally a line is drawn and then theres a declaration of war. Well in World War Three, weve got one, two, three, four invasions before a line is drawn and then in 2016 Russia the US has declared imminent cyber attacks against Russia, and Russia declared that it was prepared to defend itself. So this is at the time that I wrote this article, this is the moment that we were at. Now also in this moment, And its not covered in this article though.

I definitely I could probably dig out the file somewhere in my computer. Well, so this article we saw, sorry, at this exact time in 2016 just before the presidential election there was the US military was posting photos of uniformed American soldiers standing on the border of Estonia and Russia holding up American flags. Thousands of tanks were openly, it was openly reported, thousands of US tanks and I believe also NATO tanks were being shipped into Eastern Europe. So there wasnt a definite military buildup against Russia.

Now whether it would be stupid or not to go into direct military engagement with Russia is debatable given the nuclear weapons situation, given the historical disaster their previous attempts to invade Russia have been. But they absolutely were hyperaggressive towards Russia, and this is, to me interestingly, this is never discussed or acknowledged in the Russiagate debate, ever. None of the stuff. In the Russiagate debate America was doing nothing minding its own goddamn business and Russia came along and did this terrible cyberattack on the DNC. Sorry, cant stop myself laughing. our democratic institutions. the DNC!

Okay, thats the Russiagate fairy tale, but meanwhile back in reality The US Empire had been staging provocations against Russia consistently and right up on its borders. Okay, so notably none of the countries in which the US Empire has intervened have actually benefited from it. None of them have resulted in peace, okay. Afghanistan, no peace. Iraq, no peace.

Syria, No peace. Libya, no peace. There is no peaceful outcome from any of this. Active conflict remains in all of the above up to the time of this writing.

Were sitting here three years later active conflict still remains in all of the above, and thats not an accident. Its intentional. There is a glaringly obvious line missing from my table, that is the bottom line of the World War Two table.

The open declaration of war by a nation or nations willing to declare war in direct opposition to the activities of the Empire. So what Im saying there is that all of the preconditions of war everything that led up to World War Two has already happened in World War Three the only piece of the puzzle thats currently missing is the declaration of war. The yes, this is World War Three. Its the only part were missing.

Weve had everything else. Weve had the campaign of illegal invasions, weve had the institution of legislation to empower these activities, weve had all of the other lists of things from Naomi Kleins Ten Steps to Fasacism, the mercenaries, and the gulags like Guantanamo Bay, etc, etc. All thats already done the only thing that is missing is for it to be acknowledged to the public by the governments that this is what theyre up to and this is what they doing. Propaganda and pretexts.

Now, this is where we get into journalism media. The inception of war is always based on propaganda. This is true for each aggressive action undertaken in both World War Two and World War Three. Nazi propaganda is a thoroughly explored topic.

I dont think we even really need to go into that because if you dont know about that Id be very very surprised. Ive recounted a lot of it here. Nazi Germany would vilify obviously its enemies even though its enemies werent invading them. They were invading their socalled enemies. They would engage in psyops, claiming to be victims and of course, they werent the victims.

The US Empire uses manufactured intelligence. Criticism of the conduct . you can see it wikth Venezuela, with North Korea, with everybody who they havent managed to invade yet that they want to invade, they engage in the same type of demonization and psyops. We saw tons of it, tons of it in Syria.

Another recurring theme for the US is that cyclic or doomsday warnings about mortal dangers of weapons of mass destruction, chemical weapons in Iraq, unacceptable chemical weapons in Syria, are the redline. But there is little mention or concern for where and how these technologies were supplied to or obtained by the countries possessing them because, guess what, it turns out the chemical weapons actually came from the United States. And that they talk about Iraq and the Kurds and the chemical weapons there I think thats something that all of you would know about also. Ive investigated the stated justifications of Nazi Germany and of the US Empire for each of the military incursions and created the following table. So again from their original table from John D Clare.

Im now modeling off that original table, but this time Im doing it about the justifications for each of the invasions leading up to World War Two and leading up to World War Three. So in 1936, their invasion of the Rhineland was supposedly this is their stated reason their excuse basically was to protect Germanys western border. In 1938 in the Sudetenland, the unification of German peoples: they were bringing their own people together and uniting them. And they had claims of alleged oppression of Germanic people.

So they were saying, you know, people of Germanic origin are being discriminated against and therefore we need to reunify with them to protect them. They used the same excuse in Austria, then they used the same excuse in Czechoslovakia, but in each of those they werent uniting anyone, what they were doing was usurping all of the land of the province and then asserting governance, mandating governance over it. Then in Poland they said that again they were protecting Germanic peoples within Polish border who were allegedly fleeing Polish terror, and they said that pulled the Polish were terrorists.

And once again, that resulted in usurping all of the land of Poland and asserting governance over Poland, and killing a million Polish people in the meantime. And I didnt mention above the further German invasions throughout the rest of the war. I just went up to the date that war was actually declared. So now we look at the excuses that the US has come up with for its invasions over the last 20 years. In 2001 Afghanistan was about September 11th, because it was supposedly a terrorist safe harbor for Osama bin Laden and alQaeda.

The end result as of 2016 the country had remained in chaos 15 years later. 2003 in Iraq, it was weapons of mass destruction, removing a dictator and protecting human rights. Outcome?

The WMD allegation was proven false, millions of dead and displaced. 2004 Pakistan was about September 11th, terrorist safe harbor for Osama Bin Laden and alQaeda, drone straight strikes are ongoing some 12 years later, many dead, and to this day I believe theyre still doing drone strikes in the border region. 2011 Libya was about removing a dictator, protecting human rights. Remember those poor, they said, those woman had been raped theyd come into the hotel to tell the journalists theyd been raped and thats why we needed to invade Libya.

Sure enough, as of 2016 the country remained in total chaos, five years later now eight years later, still in total chaos. 2011 Syria was about removing the dictator Assad and protecting human rights. But, yet again, the country still remains in chaos, millions of dead and displaced. Now in 2016 that was certainly the case.

Russia was only just starting to bolster Syria at that point. In 2019 there is some stable regions of Syria where the Syrian government with foreign allies has managed to create safe zones. However, there is still conflict in other parts of the country, obviously. In 2016 their excuse for declaring cyber war on Russia was supposed to be in relation to . was supposed to be retaliatory cyber warfare due to the accusation of alleged interference in the US election. The allegations of Russiagate remain unproven and the outcome is yet to be determined.

Of course, for the propaganda of the state to thrive there must be a wholesale subjugation of the Press. This can be achieved economically through mergers and acquisitions of the corporations that own them. It can be accomplished through smear campaigns and career disadvantages for those who refuse to toe the line and weve seen plenty of that, also prosecutions. If none of that works and theres the outright criminalization of the truth and the persecution of those who tell it. And if that isnt Julian Assange in I dont know what is.

Julian Assange was the ultimate truth teller about geopolitics and the state of our world and has been is being persecuted to death for it. So there is a really interesting case study. Im just going to tell you the story myself actually rather than reading it off the page. Theres a really interesting case study in Nazi Germany World War Three, actually pre World War Two times, and thats that theres this publication. heres a publication that was the last . Ill take this off screen share and Ill just tell you this story.

Um, it was the last publication in Germany on German soil to openly oppose the Hitler Nazi regime and to tell the truth about the crimes that were being committed, the extrajudicial killings and the war crimes were being committed and the crimes of aggression and invasion. It was called the Munich Post, but Hitler hated their guts and Hitler called them the Poison Kitchen. And they only had about a dozen editors and staff working for them, but they were documenting the extrajudicial killings of citizens by the SS. So think about how brave these people were and for a dozen years prior to the declaration of war. I think . I want to say 1921 to 1933, off the top of my head.

We could go back and check all the facts are in my article and the source links. For 12 years, they were publishing the truth about the rise of Hitler and the fascist youth and the SS and the persecution and extrajudicial killings of citizens, and they received threat after threat after threat that they would be shut down that they would be killed even, and they continued to publish. They continued to publish even as their country was terrorized by its government, even as the bodies lay in the street, they continued to publish and they refused to stop publishing. And eventually Hitler sent the SS to ransack and burn down the offices to the offices of the of the newspaper and to seize the printing process, to arrest the journalists and editors, and some were killed and others were thrown in concentration camps.

They are the epitome of what journalism is supposed to be, and of what journalists and editors and media are supposed to be. Media is supposed to be a public service. Theyre supposed to serve the public.

Theyre not supposed to serve corporations. Theyre not supposed to do what they do for financial reasons, or for career advancement reasons. They are supposed to dig out the dark underbelly of whatever is happening in either their local or national or international society and to expose the truth of it for the betterment of humanity and for the benefit of humanity. And that Is what the Poison Kitchen did. The Poison Kitchen is the ultimate example of the obligation and responsibility of journalism.

So I do actually want to and I named the people from the Poison Kitchen in the article, and I actually think its really important to say their names. So Here we are right here that is important that we name the names of the courageous. Twogood continues: Protestors to Hitler fought with their hearts and jeopardized their freedom and lives hoping that the world would listen.

That is also Equador right now: the protesters are begging for the world to listen as the entire western media sit silent. The men of the Poison Kitchen, the Munich Post included Martin Gruber Erhad Auer, Edmund Goldshagg, Julius Zerfass and others, reporters and editors of the Munich Post. They faced imprisonment and death, trying unsuccessfully to warn the world, and with the passage of time their truth rings ever stronger. Why does it ring ever stronger? Because they were right!

They were right, and it cost them their lives and they gave their lives for the benefit of everybody else trying to warn people. Trying to warn the world about what was going on. Even in this modern day real journalists are often martyred for living up to the ideals the profession. Yet again, Julian Assange.

True journalism is a public service and service to the historical record to tell the unpopular truth about nefarious power NO MATTER THE RISK! While the perilous days of the Poison Kitchen may seem long behind us the preconditions for such a reoccurrence surround us. Journalists around the world are being spied on and in many cases illegally monitored by the governments using hightech equipment and corresponding laws that were designed for combating terrorism. The death of America . and I just like to point something out here . we hear all the time about Trump is so acrimonious to the press, and the poor press having to work in this hostile environment and blah blah blah.

Im sorry Trump sending some mean tweets or like saying some mean stuff at a press conference is not a fucking patch on what Julian Assange is being put through, but we dont hear our Trumps persecuting Julian Assange, We hear, ohh Trumps being mean to this ABC News anchor, whatever, he sent this tweet or like said this at a press conference . No! There are to this day journalists who have either lost their lives on whose lives are on the line, who stand to die for providing truth and accurate journalism for the benefit of humanity. Lets say the names: Julian Assange is at the top of the list. Top of the list. Now talking about saying the names: the death of American journalist Serena Shim and the lack of investigation into her passing the jailing of citizen journalists who eyewitness police killings of unarmed citizens the siege of WikiLeaks editorinchief Julia Assange The litigation that brought Gawker Media to its knees the arrest and detention of Democracy Nows Amy Goodman and the felony charges against a documentary producer at NoDAPL, which is the Dakota access pipeline protests, where once again mercenary police forces unleashed munitions upon a civilian population in the United States, are all dire warnings.

We might not be so far away from an escalation to internment camps, arbitrary detention and open military conflict as we might like to think. And if that seems far away this is 2016. Internment camps, arbitrary detention, sound familiar? An open military conflict is what we are already seeing in the Middle East. At any given time the US Empire has an ace in their pocket, but as they are well aware bringing the press to heel can also be achieved most potently by harnessing galvanizing events such as perceived attacks upon the country, as with the Reichstag fire in 1933 or the Gulf of Tonkin naval incident at the start of the Vietnam War.

The culpability for these incidents can often weigh a lot closer to home than the establishment ever lets on. And then I go through and give an example of a psyop. A psyop to the benefit of Saudi Arabia and against to give me yet was him in that occurred in 2016, which people are probably now already forgotten about.

If you want to read about that you can have a look at this article conraspin.co.nz, and put in the search Understanding World War Three To save us some time. Im not going to go through it now. And then I talk again about the inception of the Vietnam War being based on a false flag.

Okay, so yet another another aspect . another similarity between the leadup to World War Two and this, well, ongoing World War Three is Waging War at Home. So in December 2012. Jeh Johnson the general counsel for the Department of Defense stated that the military fight will be replaced by lawenforcement operation when speaking of Oxford University. Throughout history the United States has used counterintelligence tactics to wage war against its own citizens when they congregate en mass to exercise democratic rights. But particularly since 2011 there has been a dramatic increase in the prevalence of military grade equipment flowing to police forces and brutal physical oppression meted out against demonstrators and occupiers.

Well, it was assumed to be a forprofit driven consequence of the privatization of key aspects of the military or just harsh policing tactics. There is now evidence that stormtrooperlike riot police serving as a domestic army is in alignment with the strategic plans of the Department of Defense. And then I cite a article that was released by The Intercept in 2016.

You need to watch this article. Its an internal Department of Defense article and in it, and again, Im going to skip through this for the sake of time because this is like a 10, 000 word article and well be here all night If I try to read every single word of it, but in that, and then I have a timestamped analysis of the article but the . sorry of the article . the gist of the article is that the Department of Defense is outright stating that the future of warfare is urban, and its urban in terms of the Western world and that it will be waged by our soldiers in the future army, they say, redefining doctrine and the force while showing hordes of riot cops in military gear. So these riot cops that we saw used against Occupy and other protest movements and like were seeing in Ecuador right now, are envisioned by the Department of Defense as being not police but soldiers and being the future army that will police urban areas on American soil.

Now if that doesnt scare the shit out of you, I dont know what does. Like your military has basically decided, oh, yeah, we cant roll around the streets as the military. So what we do is we take the police forces and we kit them out like as if theyre military and then we get a bunch of exmilitary guys and get them recruited into law enforcement. And then voila we have a military, but people dont recognize it as military. They recognize it as being domestic police forces, but in fact its the military, military equipment, military personnel, according to the militarys own strategic plan.

That should seriously scare the shit out of you guys, and its already in place and it is already happening. Sorry, I just put my zoom share back up. So thats the gist of that article and I suggest you watch it. The article itself is frickin terrifying quite frankly.

And then Im making the point that Nazi Germany also had hordes of blackclad police with military equipment attacking its own citizens. The US Empire is not the first to institute that. Nazi Germany had the SS. They too operated in tandem with military objectives and made a hunting ground out of their own cities. Then I talked about how every Empire overextends itself.

I say Empirical governors always seek to expand, expand, expand. Or in terms of the acquisition the exfiltration of resources to usurp and consume. Each military misadventure overplays itself into the next endeavour. So basically things start out nice and easy when empires are waging these invasions.

Like we discussed before theres not really any resistance or its just some local resistance in the first invasions, but as the string of invasions continues the resistance builds. Resistance builds until eventually the resisting force is actually a nation state or multiple nation states acting in a coalition. And eventually they push it too far and get to the point where the opposing force is equal or greater.

And thats exactly what happened to Nazi Germany. Nazi Germany bit off more than I could chew. And its inevitable at this point that the US Empire is going to do exactly the same thing.

Theyre going to push it too far and their little Empire of a million whatever, thousands of military bases around the world is going to collapse. Its going to implode whether its economically collapsed or whether, in my opinion its more likely, that the direct coalition of forces that confront them will be too great. Its coming I have no doubt about that. And then I go right through the progression for Nazi Germany as to their overextension and the ways in which they suffered and paid for that. And then I talk about the attrition of the US allies, of the socalled Coalition of the Willing, which has actually been getting smaller and smaller and smaller in recent years.

There is in fact less and less countries who are willing to be involved in these invasions being waged by US Empire. The Allies list is getting shorter and shorter. Then I have a little bit more stuff about Russia and Germany which may interest you and talking about the role of women in war and the Battle of Stalingrad.

Theres some pretty awesome facts in there. The escalation of war seems inevitable because it is so closely following the blueprint of the past. The biggest ended indicator of impending conflict is the imposition of economic sanctions and this is another really pertinent section of this article and thats where I have a look at the historical role of sanctions.

So sanctions were literally used 2, 400 years ago, thats how old the practice of economic sanctions are. And sanctions throughout history have always led to war. Sanctions and war are linked to each other. Theres this quote if you go against sanctions, you should know, nothing against sanctions, but if you do that, you should know that there is only war left. You can sanction and sanction and sanction, but eventually it leaves you with no other option than invasion.

Of course some may argue that sanctions are active warfare. Certainly the method of murder, economic or military made no difference to the half a million Iraqi children who died as a direct result of sanctions in the 1990s. Sanctions imposed by vampires, held in place even after the premises under which they were imposed had been proven to be false. This is the thing.

Imposing sanctions is always done more prevalently than lifting sanctions. And lifting sanctions as usually for cosmetic effect. They will lift one or two sanctions, but its almost like its irreversible. They can reverse sanctions but they almost never do, and thats because the goal isnt actually whats stated.

The goal is about control. Once again, its about control. Now if youve watched these shows for the last few weeks you will know a lot about the global network. The global network being what the NSA calls its established partner relationships with a hundredplus countries around the globe. Their goal is to have every single country become a member the global network.

They want to monopolize the entire planet, and the intelligence sphere, and the data and networks of every country on the globe. Sanctions are more about bringing a country into the pattern into the arms of the militaryindustrial complex. Than they actually are about achieving any tactical economic gain. Its about supremacy.

Its about control. All of this comes down to being about supremacy and about control. Okay, so theres a lot more content in this article, but Im not actually going to go through much of it because Ive made the really key points that I wanted to make.

So if you want to come and have a look through the rest of it you can. Theres some stuff about Hillary and Secretaries of State. And then I talked about . people who provided bridges between countries at contentious times.

Oh there we are, weve made it to the end anyway. So that may be of some interest to you as well. Really the key points I want to make here are that I believe World War Three has already been happening.

I believe it was happening as far back as Bush saying the whole world is a battlefield and the string of invasions that weve seen is part of World War Three. Just because World War Three hasnt been declared doesnt mean that it isnt already happening. And that was really the thought that I wanted to leave you with and also, I just circle back to the point that I made earlier on.

Which is that not one bomb could have been dropped in any of these countries with our intelligence agencies and that the same intelligence agencies who have expanded their target pool to millions of citizens in countries that arent supposed to be war zones, in countries where theyre not supposed to be at war, and theyre targeting people like me who have no military background, no military training, who possess no weapons, who have no history of violence. And I end up on a terrorist watch list. Theres a problem with these agencies when they have to deem people terrorists who are not terrorists and where they bring to bear military resources, targeting systems, personnel, against civilians. Unarmed civilians. It makes them no different than the military who are currently killing people in Ecuador.

Its just these intelligence agencies kill us a lot more slowly. They kill us more slowly and then kill us more quietly. But it is the same core issue. That abuse of military resources and personnel and networks in targeting and devastating the lives of citizens of their own country. Okay.

Im going to have another quick drink now and if you guys would like to ask me any questions, please tag me in the chats and I will ask our cool social media volunteers to relay your questions to me, or Ill try and have a look out for a few myself. Ill answer questions for about 20 minutes, and then Im going to try and get some sleep because its already after five oclock in the morning here. So I hope that you enjoyed the presentation tonight. I hope that was an intriguing talk for you about understanding World War Three.

Let me know what you think about it, please I really want the feedback and I want to know if that has any impact for you. And next Sunday, we will be doing the surveillance teachin, and well be heading back to constructing our slides, which might be a bit more visually impressive for you guys. Okay, Ill be back in three minutes. Hey everyone, hopefully, you can see and hear me again. We have got a ton of questions and a couple of discussion topics.

Im going to try and knock them off really quickly. I saw someone talking about Amy Goodman. I was disappointed that Amy Goodman kind of toed the line, with making Julian Assange a little bit persona nongrata post 2016 election. Other than that Democracy Now is actually one of the best news sources in terms of protest movements, activism events, around the world. They generally have pretty fair coverage about them and I appreciate them as a news source for that reason, and I do watch Democracy Now for that reason.

However, I do wish that they had had a bit more courage in standing by Julian and WikiLeaks. Unfortunately they were obviously feeling the pressure from their support base and they did lapse somewhat and their support of Julian and WikiLeaks in that post 2016 election period. I see somebody else asking about TPP. I was a cofounder of TPPNoWay which was a hashtag founded in New Zealand in support of the movement against the TPP.

I worked on that issue for about seven years actually. Worked very closely on the issue and in support of serious major mass protests against TPP. Ive often said that the one thing that Trump has done that I really was very happy about and applauding, was when he ditched the TPP and Im ashamed and disappointed that my country New Zealand particularly Jacinda Ardern and the Labour government that came in, in 2017. One of the first things they did was to fasttrack and push through the TPP, ahead of any participation by the United States. I think that was shameful.

I think it was a betrayal of their base. I think it was a betrayal of the will of the people of New Zealand and of much of the world. And it was a total corporate sellout. I would point out that WikiLeaks was the most significant publisher in terms of information about the TPP, they got their hands on leaked chapters of the TVP and published them at a time when nobody else had.

Their reporting was incredibly significant. They also engaged experts around the world including Dr Jane Kelsey who was the founder of the New Zealand movement against the TPP, and had those experts and specialists and dissect and analyze and report on the significance of the provisions of the various chapters of the TPP. Yet again WikiLeaks provided an invaluable public service on that.

Now so the question was specifically whether I discussed TPP in terms of understanding World War Three. The answer is no I didnt. However TPP is like the Big Daddy version of the 90s socalled free trade agreements, and I did discuss TPP last week when I was talking about economic supremacy and how the TPP was actively supported and promoted and actually called an imperative to national security by the intelligence agencies.

The TPP was absolutely a priority. The passage of it was the priority of Western intelligence agencies and that in and of itself says a lot. Someone else: on the topic of pretext of war I have I read any analysis of this development of naval bases in the Pacific? If youre talking about the pivot to Asia then the pivot to Asia is actually covered in my article understanding World War Three.

I skipped past that part But if you go to their article and you CTRLF pivot to Asia, I do actually talk about that aspect of it. So you can have a read of that there. And I have talked a lot and other articles Ive done as well about that. So I assume that would cover it off.

Thank you to all the people who say that this talk was valuable and thoughtprovoking for them. I really really really really really appreciate that Someone else. Do I have any opinion on Israel and in particular Netanyahu driving the wars in the Middle East? i.e. he was pushing to invade Iraq pre2001, Genie Oil etc.

Absolutely. Israel is a major war wager. Israel constantly wages proxy wars. They prefer to fight on other peoples soil, rather than their own.

They are quite happy with their apartheid regime um, it feels wrong to even say their own soil, but effectively their own soil. But they prefer to take their fights to other peoples countries and to fight in those countries. Now I did cover off some stuff about Israel when I talked about the Two Eyes in the very first episode of the series I did an overview of all of the different collections of eyes of the intelligence agencies, and talked about how USIsrael have a socalled special relationship that is actually above Tte level even of the Five Eyes, the Five Eyes being US, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand And I also talked to about Israels penchant for these private digital security hacking companies who . I mean Snowden has done great work around there. I would absolutely . God he did the greatest talk, I want to say, was it late last year?

I think was late last year. He actually spoke in Israel. I mean people, this is another thing you hear all the time. Julian doesnt publish about Israel. Snowden doesnt talk about Israel.

Go to wikileaks.org type in Israel press ENTER and then tell me that Julian doesnt publish about Israel. There is mountains of stuff about Israel in there, and Snowden took a speaking engagement in Tel Aviv, and then use that speaking invade engagement to absolutely lambast Israel for its private hacking companies which are supplying engineering and supplying spyware and hacking tools to governments around the world, to target, persecute, and in some cases murder activists journalists and dissidents. So I would definitely go and search Snowden Israel, because that was one of the most epic and in my opinion consequential talks that Ed Snowden has ever done. Yes, its 5:30 a.m. now, to the person whos asking.

Okay, what else? I know I just missed a bunch of questions. What do I think could be the final nail in US Empire? I think the weight of its own structure is what will be the fight . I mean, Id like to say that the final nail in the US Empire would be the people fight back against it and they dont stand for this anymore.

Because people still do have the power and thats also part of what were seeing in Ecuador right now. The Ecuadorian government is absolutely shitting themselves about the display of people power thats on the streets in Ecuador. Thats why theyre rolling out the tanks there, why are they acting like its Egypt. I would like to think its the people.

A mass of people taking about the power. People becoming aware, people becoming learned and knowledgeable about the global network and acting to shut it down. Thats what I hope but I think that ultimately it will collapse under its own weight. it relies on a perpetual growth model and eventually, it wont be able to grow any more. Theres only so many countries on this planet and only so many people to oppress and so many people to target.

I think that as they continually expand the groups of society that they target which is something weve talked a lot about in previous shows, examples of the ways that theyre doing that. I think its simply unsustainable. Eventually they start eating their own, eventually They will start having to target their own support base and once they do that there are in really big trouble. Okay, I feel like I just missed a bunch of questions actually.

What are my favorite stress reduction techniques? Righteous indignation laughs . Whats kept me going all these years hasnt been because Im really strong or because Im really brave. Its been righteous indignation.

Its been because I am so pissed off that the spy agencies of my country are in violation of their founding charter, targeting their own citizens. Im so pissed off that they are sucking up all the data in respect of all the people in my country and then shipping it off to a foreign government. Which in my opinion is an act of treason.

I am so upset that military, legislation, resources, personnel, networks are being used to target nonviolent, unarmed, peaceful dissidents, in total violation of every democratic principle and all of our protected democratic and human rights. Im so pissed off about that that I dont care that Im just one woman and I dont care that they have billions of dollars and I have nothing. I will ideologically oppose them because they are wrong! They are absolutely fundamentally wrong and what they do is so immoral and so egregious is so unethical that on principle, with nothing but my voice, I will oppose them until Kingdom Come and hopefully enough other people will feel the same that they will lend their voices and their support and whatever little resources they have in this disgusting global economic climate, to push back as well.

Because I dont want to live in this dystopia and we who are the victims of it, are ultimately going to be the ones that are going to have to and I mean victims, like everybody is a victim of mass surveillance. Its not just the victims of targeted surveillance, like myself. Everybody is being traded and their private lives have been commercialized without their consent and that data is being shared around the world with foreign countries in a total violation of our civil rights.

We together have a chance at shutting these guys down, when it becomes socially unacceptable to work for a spy agency. Thats when well make some progress. When it becomes socially unacceptable to be associated with the targeting of civilians.

Then well make some progress and thats the point that weve got to get to. Weve got to get to the point where its like. Oh, youre applying to work at the NSA. Oh my God How shameful, how can you be a part of that? Then well make some progress.

Aand you know I talked about like wanting to abolish these agencies and its the type of conduct that Ive seen and witnessed and been subjected to that makes me think they are beyond help and need to be abolished. However, if they were to stick to their actual founding charters, like if they were to spy on other spies or diplomats, or foreign diplomats or whatever it is that they actually supposed to be doing. Im okay with that. I am NOT okay with endless war, perpetual war, killing civilians, extrajudicial assassinations, spying on dissidents, destroying lives of dissidents.

Im not okay with the privatization of military functions, Im not okay with all of these private intelligence companies and spying companies and mercenaries and everything running around targeting people for profit. Im not okay with any of that. But if they could take it back to day one and do what theyre actually freakin supposed to be doing on public dollars, that, in that situation, I would never have come to oppose them.

I would never be taking a moral stand against them. I wouldnt know any different because I wouldnt have been dragged into their insane games, and subjected to their shit. So its not that I just think all intelligence agencies should be shut down. I think they should be doing their actual job which are actually founded to do. Which was not to target their own citizens and not to target civilians who are unarmed and whove never hurt anyone, never going to hurt anyone.

So thats my little lecture. Okay, guys, Im going to run Im sorry, I know theres a lot of other questions but Im pretty pooped now. Ive been talking for two and a half hours and I need to take a break.

I dDeeply appreciate you being here. I would absolutely ask . its really cool that people Super Chat on Grahams channel, but do know that that money goes to Graham and Im happy for it to go to Graham because it is actually phenomenally awesome of him, its great act of solidarity for him to lend me his audience. Like what a cool guy to do that. What a cool guy to stand up and support someone like me whose work is so contentious? And he lends me 50, 000 subscribers every week because he wants these messages and this information to get out, and that says a lot about her Graham is as a person.

The fact that he is willing to publicly stand by me and stand by my work and my situation says a huge amount about him. And that he lends me the platform that hes built from his own work to do it. I greatly respect and greatly appreciate.

Likewise, I want to take action against these agencies. I want to fight back and set some meaningful precedents. I want to get some restitution for what theyve cost me and my children and my family.

And to do that I do need you guys to donate. And to donate you go to 1vs5i.comdonate 1vs5i.comdonate and please give generously. Or if you cant, which I completely understand, there are so many people that are in a position that they simply dont have 50 cents you know to their names that instead you just pick up these messages, these links, promote the short articles any other content on the YouTube channel, the website, any of it.

Spread it as far and wide as you can because as you can see no media is admitting that there is a woman and two kids living in exile in Russia from New Zealand for the last three and a half years because of persecution by state agencies. They will not admit that. They will not promote this campaign. So word of mouth is the only way that we can build something important here, and that we can break through. So Thank you so, so much.

Im going to blow you a kiss and Im going to see you next week I saw one person ask will I be back again next Sunday? I will be back here next Sunday. Ill see you next week for the surveillance teachin for Opening the Five Eyes Exposing The Methods of the Spies. Ka ki te anoa, as we say in New Zealand, and good night everybody.

Hi, my name is Suzie, Im an activist and a journalist from Auckland, New Zealand. For years, Ive worked on controversial issues like the corruption of our intelligence agencies. I was severely targeted as a result of my work.

This led to my articles being amplified by the worlds most accomplished publisher. In 2016 I made a documentary about how and why I was forced to leave my country. I have now sought refuge in Russia and my situation has become public. On 882 6PR its the voice of Perth. Its 1230 right now and Tony with you, and Im really happy we finally got through to a Moscow to my friend over there Suzie Dawson.

Youre listening to a 95bFM podcast. Suzie Dawson is a Kiwi activist and journalist who worked as a member of Occupy Aucklands media team at that time. Now, five years later and following involvement in GCSB and TPPA opposition, shes seeking asylum in Russia alleging she has been spied on harassed and threatened by the Police.

Welcome back to The Wire. Now finally on the show today, last week it was announced that Suzie Dawson will be the new leader of the Internet Party. Welcome to the Jimmy Dore show. We have a special guest with us. Its Suzie Dawson.

Shes an activist, journalist, former party leader and current president of the Internet Party. Suzie Dawson, an activist and citizen journalist currently seeking asylum in Moscow. Suzie has written extensively on surveillance and the deep state and claims its not safe for her in New Zealand. My name is Craig Tuck. Im a lawyer from New Zealand.

I act in the area of international human rights. I act for Suzie Dawson along with a group of other lawyers throughout the world who act for journalists and dissenters in highprofile cases including the case of Julian Assange. As far back as 2012 Suzie has been trying to warn New Zealanders and other citizens around the world about state targeting and surveillance of citizens and the methods being used to do it. Surveillance in New Zealand, is now so widespread its not an issue of Police going and getting a warrant and doing an investigation and then it all coming out in court. The vast majority is the surveillance that is undertaken is never going to be aired in a courtroom And by that Im talking about cell phone technologies, Im talking about lawful interceptionthe term that the companies that do this like to use.

There is a corporation in Wellington, New Zealand called SSI Corp and you can google them and you can look at their website. And on their website theyre so good as to explain at length exactly what they do and how legal it is for them to do it. And essentially they can intercept virtually any communication.

If they have someone at range they can hear your actual conversations, but also through cell phones they can essentially turn them into microphones and hear any conversation thats had within the vicinity. They can see your txt messages. They can see what photos are on your phone. They can see what files are on your phone.

They can read your emails. They can just intercept all kinds of information. Any intelligence service in the world that has significant funding and a real technological research team, can own that phone.

The minute it connects to their networkas soon as you turn it onit can be theirs. They can turn it into a microphone. They can take pictures from it.

They can take the data off of it. But its important to understand that these things are typically done on a targeted basis. Not only was Suzie essentially blowing a whistle on statelevel spying, she was naming the precise entities that years later it would be proven had in fact been doing it. And the fact that these are private corporations that are doing it, should be really concerning to us. The crowd that they outsourced it to was TCIL which was, I believe, Thompson Clark Investigations Limited.

The state is contracting a private company to surveil you. To me, thats really immoral. Absolutely immoral. Some six years later in December 2018 an official State Services Commission report confirmed that New Zealand government agencies had been employing Thompson and Clark Investigations Limited to target New Zealand citizens.

This is a private company that had essentially been instructed by state agencies and departments to spy on citizens. More than a dozen Police staff are under investigation for passing sensitive information to the private investigators Thompson and Clark. Thompson and Clark security firm . Thompson and Clark . So Thompson and Clark and they arent some of them old Police officers.

Ah, yes, they are. Okay, so does that explain the relationship and the free flow of information? Doesnt it actually seem a bit crass? Well, at the end of the day I guess what I trust is peoples intent . The report identifies perhaps inappropriately close relationships. Morning teas paid for by Thompson and Clark.

Invitations to go out for drinks. Were there other companies identified where you inappropriately gave them information, or just Thompson and Clark? Erm, there are a myriad of security companies who inquire of Police every day, for instance insurers, er, security . Thats not my question. People listening to this will think hey Thompson and Clark were getting stellar topshelf gold star treatment from the Police.

Why? Do you treat other security firms the same as you were treating this one? And how do you seriously think it looks to members of the public listening to this? Thompson and Clark hasnt just been paid by the government to spy on Greenpeace and earthquake claimants in Christchurch. Tonight Checkpoint can reveal the controversial security firm has been also monitoring the activities of another three activist groups in Northland, Coromandel, and Wellington and the activities of at least one further claimant.

Suzie has been involved at the very highest levels with people facing charges from prosecutions coming out of the Eastern District Court of Virginia in the United States. There are more prosecutions to follow, of currently unnamed persons. Importantly information will be coming out in the months to come that will provide transparency and clarity and lead to accountability.

Suppression and prosecution of dissenters cant be allowed in New Zealand or elsewhere. Thats why Suzies team is launching the hashtag 1vs5i campaign, and with your help can achieve some important victories for democracy and for each and every one of us.p
