Global Capitalism, “World Government” and the Corona Crisis
Michel Chossudovsky | Global Research - TRANSCEND Media Service, 1 Jun 2020

24 May 2020 – The World is being misled concerning the causes and consequences of the corona crisis. The COVID-19 crisis is marked by a public health “emergency” under WHO auspices which is being used as a pretext and a justification to triggering a worldwide process of economic, social and political restructuring. Social engineering is being applied. Governments are pressured into extending the lockdown, despite its devastating economic and social consequences. What is happening is unprecedented in World history.

Prof Michel Chossudovsky – Global Research, 21 Oct 2019

14 Oct 2019 – Lagarde was found “guilty” without the enforcement of a one year jail term ordered by the Court: criminals in high office are given special treatment. She was accused of “negligence” rather than “complicity” in a multimillion euro fraud. In a bitter irony, Lagarde was rewarded rather than penalized. Despite her criminal record, she was appointed to lead both the IMF (2011-2019) and the ECB (2019- ).

The Empire’s “Lefty Intellectuals” Call for Regime Change. The Role of “Progressives” and the Antiwar Movement
Prof Michel Chossudovsky – Global Research, 15 Jan 2018

9 Jan 2018 – The anti-war movement is dead. The war on Syria is tagged as “a civil war”. The war on Yemen is also portrayed as a civil war. While the bombing is by Saudi Arabia, the insidious role of the US is downplayed or casually ignored. Funded by corporate charities, via a network of non-governmental organizations, social activism tends to be piecemeal. The economic crisis is not seen as having a relationship to US led wars.

Prof Michel Chossudovsky | Global Research – TRANSCEND Media Service, 5 Sep 2016

Public opinion was led to believe that relations with the US had not only deteriorated, but that Erdogan had vowed to restore “an axis of friendship” with Moscow, including “cooperation in the defence sector”. This was a hoax. The failed coup was indeed supported by the CIA, but the failure was coordinated with President Erdogan.

Prof Michel Chossudovsky - Global Research, 16 Jun 2014

There are “ultra-conservatives” in the Kiev government but “they are not Neo-Nazis,” says the Western media. The alternative media says that the Kiev regime is integrated by two Neo-Nazi parties (Svoboda and Right Sector) “but it is not a Neo-Nazi government”. When the Kiev regime “officially” displays Nazi emblems to identify entities of their National Security and Military apparatus one would normally assume that it is a Neo-Nazi government.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) vs. Syria’s “Moderate” Al Qaeda Terrorists
Prof. Michel Chossudovsky - Global Research, 27 Jan 2014

The Western media has tacitly acknowledged, faced with overwhelming evidence, that the opposition rebels have not only committed countless atrocities, they were also behind the chemical weapons attack of August 21.

North Korea lost thirty percent of its population as a result of US-led bombings in the 1950s.

Who is Behind WikiLeaks?
Michel Chossudovsky – Global Research, 20 Dec 2010

“World bankers, by pulling a few simple levers that control the flow of money, can make or break entire economies. By controlling press releases of economic strategies that shape national trends, the power elite are able to not only tighten their stranglehold on this nation’s economic structure, but can extend that control world wide. Those possessing such power would logically want to remain in the background, invisible to the average citizen.” (Aldous Huxley) – WikiLeaks is upheld as a breakthrough in the battle against media disinformation and the lies of the US government…. In turn, we must ensure that the campaign against WikiLeaks in the U.S., using the 1917 Espionage Act, will not be utilized as a means to wage a campaign to control the internet. In this regard, we should also stand firm in preventing the prosecution of Julian Assange in the US.

We are dealing with a clear case of fake intelligence comparable to that presented by Colin Powell in February 2003 on Iraq’s alleged weapons of mass destruction…. The US has once again used fake intelligence to build a justification to wage war….

Fake Anti-war Activism: The “Humanitarian Road” Towards an all out Nuclear War?
Michel Chossudovsky – Global Research, 22 Nov 2010

Some of America’s wars are condemned outright, while others are heralded as “humanitarian interventions”. A significant segment of the US antiwar movement condemns the war but endorses the campaign against international terrorism, which constitutes the backbone of US military doctrine. The “Just War” theory has served to camouflage the nature of US foreign policy, while providing a human face to the invaders.

9/11 Analysis: From Ronald Reagan and the Soviet-Afghan War to George W Bush and September 11, 2001
Michel Chossudovsky – Global Research, 13 Sep 2010

In the Pashtun language, the word “Taliban” means “Students”, or graduates of the madrasahs (places of learning or coranic schools) set up by the Wahhabi missions from Saudi Arabia, with the support of the CIA. Education in the years preceding the Soviet-Afghan war war largely secular in Afghanistan. The number of CIA sponsored religious schools (madrasahs) increased from 2,500 in 1980 to over 39,000. The Soviet-Afghan war was part of a CIA covert agenda initiated during the Carter administration, which consisted in actively supporting and financing the Islamic brigades, later known as Al Qaeda. President Ronald Reagan met the leaders of the Islamic Jihad at the White House in 1983. Under the Reagan administration, US foreign policy evolved towards the unconditional support and endorsement of the Islamic “freedom fighters”. In today’s World, the “freedom fighters” are labeled “Islamic terrorists”.
