By Gordon Duff and New Eastern Outlook (Established in 1816), part of the Russian Academy of Science
America’s military power is a sham. With talk about fighting ground wars against Iran or Russia, only those who really know America’s military and its current condition can understand the insanity of these scenarios.
I served in America’s military, the Marine Corps, in Vietnam. Pay was typically 30% of minimum wage and less than 20% of my actual pre-service pay. Money was taken out of $60 dollars a month to pay for uniforms, military looking buttons and “doodads” and for required and needed hygiene products.
No attempt was made to justify the war itself. You see, even the Marine Corps got draftees and those who volunteered were often faced with the draft and chose service because of a number of factors:
- Family members who served in World War II or Korea
- Confusion brought on by a lifetime of phony patriotism sold through Hollywood
No one serving in combat units in Vietnam cared about who won the war and most who served in real combat were under 20 years old and looked on the US military as an adversary, an enemy.
This is the simple truth of it.
Adding to the overall effect, absolutely awful officers and senior NCO’s who not only ducked combat but took little interest in their troops and even less interest in their other duties.
Mind you, they were still “decorated” when they were sent home, providing their own men didn’t kill them.
From this point, the US military actually got worse.
The concept, one developed by Nixon and Kissinger, now that’s a pair of geniuses if I ever saw one, was to destroy the labor unions, push wages to levels that were below survivability and build a military out of the poor and uneducated.
This process came to fruition under Reagan who destroyed America’s industrial economy, building a work force out of illegal aliens and domestic workers whose pay levels in the new “service economy” would make military service at far higher pay levels than during Vietnam seem like an “easy way out.”
So, what do we have today?
When people leave the military, it isn’t after 2 years or less as was common for those who served in combat in Vietnam. They last 6 years or even ten years in the military. Then most leave or are forced out.
Those who served in what passed for combat, drone killings, dodging RPGs while touring the Middle East in armoured vehicles, became a way of life.
After all, these new wars saw few casualties compared to Vietnam, the pay was more than 10 times the pay and life in a combat zone was all about PlayStations, Taco Bell and air conditioning.
In Vietnam, it was starvation, malnutrition and KIA levels far higher than even World War II.
Those who fought in Vietnam were angry, angry at the United States, angry at themselves but few were institutionalized, coddled and fed by a military that turned out “veterans” who were closer to those who return to society after serving long prison sentences.
The trail leads to today’s America with a military unaccountable, out of control and deeply aligned with Nazi supremacists and the prison gangs that sided with Trump and the GOP, that curiously partner so well with America’s corrupt police organizations.
A darker aspect, having begun after 9/11, is the partnership between the shadowy Department of Homeland Security and Israeli intelligence services. The DHS works with a series of “civilian” support organizations that are directly tied to organized crime on a planetary scale.
Badges and high-level security clearances have been handed out to criminal elites from around the world.
Truth is, the best way to describe the United States is as a “failed state.” The problem, of course, is that this “failed state” operates murder drones around the world and is even arming space platforms for the “war after the next war.”
On January 6, 2021, disgraced former president, Donald Trump, attempted to stop the certification of the 2020 presidential election, an election he lost by a considerable margin. Trump’s try was based on backing from top Pentagon generals, a cabal of traitors who rose to power during the phony “War on Terror.”
This cabal has been seen before, many times.
The American military was built on the British model. By “military,” I don’t mean the men and women who fight wars and, in theory, protect America’s “freedoms.” We are referring to the institutional hierarchy produced by the service academies and the “rank and file” of reserve officers from ROTC programs and similar.
There is nothing “democratic” in that military.
We saw America’s military fail at Pearl Harbor, an event many historians speculate about, as to whether the military itself wanted a world war. America’s top military leaders had developed a “love affair” with Hitler and Mussolini, cheering them on during their intervention in the Spanish Civil War and offering any and all encouragement as Hitler rebuilt the German war machine with Wall Street cash.
The “East Coast” cabal, the arms merchants, bankers with ties to the Frankfurt bankers who financed centuries of European wars, also ran, and continues to run America’s military and intelligence services.
However, it wasn’t until the 1990’s that the cults and cabals that oversaw America’s expansionism for nearly 200 years “married” an “infectious” religious movement.
Worse still, when military commanders refused to run drugs from Afghanistan or traffic children for sex, private military contracting companies took over these vital aspects of warfare.
When the CIA stopped giving congress the lies required to justify permanent war, all intelligence gathering, all intelligence processing and even policy decisions were handed over to civilian contracting firms who simultaneously aligned themselves with rogue states.
The January 6 Report
In order to look at this issue, we will examine a submission made to General Honore, the retired officer appointed by congress to investigate the events of January 6, 2021:
Institutional Degradation and Radicalization
• US service academies, during the 1990s, were penetrated by Dominionist groups, initially as “Pentecostals.” Calling these groups an “Apocalypse death cult” is no overstatement and their actions, minimally, led to the degradation of good order and discipline and a “cult of mediocrity” that has infected our armed services.
• Direct targeting of certain commands, JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command), our nuclear commands (Minot) and others by what became an extremist cult within the military was directly challenged by Dempsey/Hagel (then Chairman JCOS and Defense Secretary). (Redacted)
• The DOD is working full time to cover up criminal gangs who, through terrorism, now control some military bases. (Redacted)
• Penetration of the FBI, DOJ, DHS, ICE and other institutions (congress) by non-nation state organizations, disguised to an extent as financial organizations, organizations that control intelligence agencies of Britain, Turkey, Israel, India and Russia may well have a hand in events of January 6 and any classified report should deal with this hypothesis that, I assure you, the FBI is aware of.
• Groups like the NRA (National Rifle Association) and certain lobby groups along with the Heritage Foundation and others, have a known history of contact with foreign intelligence services. (Redacted)
• Nothing can be investigated without looking at PMCs (Private Military Corporations) and their role, particularly when we have every reason to believe that (Redacted) would have had a role “every step of the way” and is never mentioned.
This document goes further.
• As you know, the FBI is currently vetting 25,000 National Guard troops for membership in Oath Keepers, Proud Boys and their analogs (all seem to be coordinated with common membership)
• This is seen by them as a national security threat, but the DOJ and other organizations overtly protect almost all of these groups according to sources at FBI Domestic Terrorism.
• There are clear indications that the DOJ is fully complicit in protecting all these domestic threats and in covering for any potential ties to (Redacted).
• The DOJ is currently moving full speed on Trump’s claim that “infiltrators” are responsible for all January 6 violence.
• The DOJ is currently involved in fabricating “evidence” tying Biden and his supporters to Russian intelligence operations.
• DOJ militarized forces deployed in city after city against peaceful demonstrators were unavailable when an army attacked the US Capitol.
• The DOJ is currently feeding disinformation into right wing media outlets, Antifa, China, Iran etc.
• We have the DOJ as totally compromised.
• There is reason to believe that the DHS is now and has been deeply penetrated by intelligence organizations hostile to the US.
• DHS is a soft target for foreign penetration.
• Their massive capability, thousands of armed agents, were nowhere to be seen and are nowhere to be seen in the aftermath.
• No evidence the DHS has taken any role at all other than full stand down.
• Why is the FBI holding back real charges, murder of a federal officer, insurrection, sedition, which all involved on January 6 violence are subject to? (Redacted)
• Why is there no FBI investigation into financing and planning of what was announced at the outset as a violent rally to prevent a government process, the definition of sedition?
• Why no FBI investigation into key individuals, all subject to arrest, including Giuliani, Trump family members, Alex Jones, Flynn and others?
• Why a total blackout on a grand jury and special prosecutor?
• Why a total blackout on the use of the legal term “Treason,” on clearly described in the Constitution, when the stated purpose of all involved, from the Trump’s and their organizer friends and those who funded them, and the clear statements of intent made by many involved was to overthrow the government?
Every major news organization, on a daily basis, warns of the US becoming a fascist dictatorship.
The proof behind this is staggering and credible, yet little or nothing is done.
Leading the way is America’s “bottom feeder” military, grown fat on easy enemies, easy if the fighting is done by well-paid but unwanted social outcasts.
50 years ago, American war veterans brought down a presidency that by Trump standards was pure “amateur hour” by standards of corruption set under Barr, Pompeo and Kushner.
Today, war veterans are arming to bring down their own nation, steeped in vaccine denial and slurping down the endless lies spewed by the “self-policing” social media giants who are likely the engine behind a new generation of human suffering.

Excellent analysis. And here’s the nub:
“However, it wasn’t until the 1990’s that the cults and cabals that oversaw America’s expansionism for nearly 200 years “married” an “infectious” religious movement.”
Just to elaborate on the Dominionist sects, these are the Evangelical Christian “churches” that not only focus almost entirely on End Times prophesies but also highlight a call for them to establish “the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth” as a critical step in facilitating the Second Coming.
Apparently, God and Jesus can’t pull off the Apocalypse without the assistance of the earthly “Christian” occultists, who are allegedly tasked with establishing suitably godly world governance before Jesus steps in to take the helm.
Their seditious agenda is to subvert all government and social institutions to “reclaim the seven mountains of culture”: government, religion, media, family, business, education, and arts and entertainment.
The fact that this has proven to be a highly lucrative exercise for these inherently materialistic, “aspirational” Christians just goes to show how God loves the rich and rewards the worthy.
The main churches/cults involved are not only those affiliated with the Pentecostals and Seven Mountains, but also Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormans and a substantial segment of the now Jesuit-controlled Catholic Church.
Oh, and they’re almost all Trumpers.
‘Today, war veterans are arming to bring down their own nation, steeped in vaccine denial and slurping down the endless lies spewed by the “self-policing” social media giants who are likely the engine behind a new generation of human suffering.”
True enough, Gordon. But, don’t exclude the fact that the Cult of Trump is first and foremost a product of Christian fundamentalism. They aren’t into evidence or facts, only true-believer ideology. That means Trump had to have won the election of 2020. How could it be otherwise? Christian Zionism looks toward an apocalyptic event that will signal the end of the USA and the beginning of some kind of Zionist theocracy. This has nothing to do with the US Constitution and the rule of law, which they have no respect for whatsoever. They are the chosenites who will be raptured up to Heaven while the rest of us are cinder cakes. They have been strangely silent on this and other websites.
Peaceful demonstrators. Consider this…the violence…could it well have been staged by the same DHS/police who were there….for NO OTHER PURPOSE THAN TO STAGE VIOLENCE and FALSE FLAG TERROR? excuse the caps..i have trouble with dumb
Your preferred selections of videos influence what you are sent.
MSM does not show the peaceful marches because it does not sell.
The overwhelming majority of demonstrations were peaceful.
95% of the videos of that are not viewed.
Go to the protest, then assess. The right wing largely does not understand or participate ion protests. They are most obedient. Until they tried it once on Jan 6. They suck at protests because they do not have a valid beef. The majority of violence during protests are initiated by police firing randomly into the crowd, and we saw that thousands of times.
Gordon, tt would be enormous interest if, on one of these fine miserable days of Winter, both you and Jim were to write about how and why the American Police is wholly militarized. What was the trigger? Who drove this “policy”? and ultimately, who benefited!
9-11 opened the gate, and it has never been closed. The event triggered a looting of public finances, and orgy of entities wanting to grab all the could under the convenient cover of defending the country from ISIS terrorists who were not here. They came later, and then domestic home grown terrorists, including high school kids out did them. Even small counties wanted a mobile terrorist command response center. All the grifting took attention away from who really did 9-11, the investigation where no one testified under oath.
Jim Dean says 911 was the cause of police militarization but he’s wrong; it was the fake drug war with all the mayhem trillions in criminal money generates.
Speaking from the far side of the Atlantic and sitting on the west coast of Ireland, as far from London and Brussels as is possible, there’s not a word of this Submission that surprises me Godron.
Moreover, what’s been happening in the American military, intel services, government, media and political life is being replicated here in Europe by the European Union, that is to say, the political arm of NATO.
Why am I not surprised!
I will be surprised if anyone within the US Congress or within the January 6 Committee that appointed General Honore to investigate the events of January 6 2021 will pay even the slightest attention to what’s been set out above. I hope I’m proved wrong but given the daily levels of corruption that are plain to see I very much doubt it!
This last comment by mister Imre Tinayi bears proof to the notion that the Hungarian uprising of 1956 was indeed an anti-Jewish insurrection — or at least lends credit to that claim. After Khrustchew saw to it that the Hungarian Commie leadership got cleansed of Stalinistic Jews and replaced by the leader (Kaidar?), things went very well for Hungary for two decennia with his “Goulash Communism”
The upstarts need to meet the stay behind crew. Mandate a briefing regarding Jan 6, across all branches, and watch the commanders. Take charge and observe who you have. Pretty sure job one was vetting by November 2016. Our security is unacceptable for what we pay.
If they cannot separate, their civic oath to protect the people, from their religious or political views, they gotta go. They must be able to live in two worlds at once and continue to be serviceable and trustworthy. The job is to protect the people. Not your god. Not the president. Not a party. The people. No more waivers for office, No more exemptions. Get your ass back over there and cut the budget by 80%. No more contracts within 8 years of retirement.
You even blink at that pile of money, and all you have to do is watch the eyebrows.
My timeline starts when the Leicester Foxes won the championship. The data from Cambridge Analytica is not viewed properly. I ask that it be viewed as an electrical stimulus that branches out to the nerves and tendons of any populace it is directed toward. What happens if we do this…wow. From there, it became so easy. I find it weird that pipelines that do not belong to us were the first agenda item. I find it weird that the US SUN launched in step with the Prince moving to our media center. I find it weird that this prince feels so at liberty to comment on our politics. I find it weird he is not taxed. Check out British Israelism,…and I find it weird that so many elements of that are so visible here.
The reverse profiling of Johnson and Trump are nearly identical. I am not a mathematician, but it seems the odds of that are staggering. That I do not find weird. I find us on the bad end of a global move by Monarchy. Who do we need to like us and why ?
Well well well now Gordon Duff, it looks like the divide and conquer crew are sitting pretty in the catbird seat.
There’s no angle of this imbroglio which they don’t have covered.
Except maybe One, and even that One, they think they have in the bag.
Yes, all true. Unfortunately.
‘War is a Racket!’ The Military Industrial Complex, the Enemies within! False/Fake Patriotism, driven by the M.S.M. and the ‘Entertainment/Hollywood SLIME Industry’, is brainwashing the American Public! I had 2 tours in NAM, volunteered for my Second Tour, I was NAIVE, I thought that I had, ‘Skin in the Game’, since I escaped from the Communist Paradise of Hungary in November 1956, at age 14, my Father sent me away, for my own safety, after the Soviet Horde was called in by a Hungarian Communist Jew, Erno GERO, to trample our ‘Fight for Freedom’! Iwas hopping that with my Service, the 2nd Tour, I could help the People of S. Vietnam to escape the same tragedy, that my Native Country had to endure! In retrospect, some 58 thousands+ of my Fellow Service Men/Women Died, some 2300+ MIA/POWs for NOTHING! Who GAINED, Profited from that TRAGEDY/War Crimes?
