What’s the Use of Following RFE/RL Anyway?


I love reading Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) these days. You’ve no idea how much the US State Department propaganda channel helps in my “truth” research. Then there’s the bonus of being transported back in time. For RFE/RL reminds me of younger years and the days of “Duck and Cover” – the fearsome days of the big, bad, red menace revisited upon Earth today. Here’s a brand-new method to convert imperialistic propaganda into fact, in case you are in need. And all the reason Europe should ever need to shut down this propaganda machine.

Duck! Trump May Hit the Button!

Yes, that’s right. I am old enough to remember America’s Civil Defense “Duck and Cover” drills conducted by schools and communities across the U.S. back in the 1950s and 1960s. My earliest experience being in 1962, on schooldays in El Paso, Texas, home of Biggs Air Force Base (SAC) and Fort Bliss (1st Armored Division). I’ll spare you the trip down memory lane, but anyone who’s researched these ridiculous Civil Defense exercises wonders how on Earth safety experts concluded that hiding under a desk or in a hallway with one’s hands over one’s head might safeguard against being injured in a nuclear catastrophe? The answer is pretty simple really. There was nobody back then to call “bullshit” even when it was clear after nuclear weapons tests Ivy Mike and Castle Bravo showed that holding a coat over your head was not going to help you forego the inevitable. Those tests were in the early 1950s, but “Duck and Cover” programs continued for a decade. This is a situation a bit like RFE/RL today.

For those totally unfamiliar, it was during the Cold War that Radio Free Europe (RFE) began broadcasting to Soviet satellite countries, while Radio Liberty (RL) targeted the Soviet Union with western propaganda that was anti-communist.  The service was created under the auspices of the National Committee for a Free Europe, which was more or less created by CIA legend, Allen Dulles, who was first instrumental in the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) in World War II, and later oversaw the 1954 Guatemalan coup d’état, Operation Ajax (the overthrow of Iran’s elected government), the Lockheed U-2 aircraft program and the Bay of Pigs Invasion, not to mention his role in the Warren Commission investigating the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Without taking a romp over into dastardlier Dulles skullduggery, I frame his role here simply to show that RFE/RL was a clandestine operation from the get-go. And on the lunatic-Russophobic side of all this, the people behind the National Committee for a Free Europe back then, they seemed to have been cloned to become the technocrats, spooks, military industrialists, and bankers and western oligarchs like George Soros spoiling relationships today. And this is where my new affinity for RFE/RL comes into focus. For those who want to know when and if Donald Trump hits the nuclear button, just listen or read RFE/RL, they’ll swear he’s calm as pond water the instant before. Now let me explain some reasons you can know this.

Who Killed Kennedy? As If We Didn’t Know

If you wanted a crystal ball vision inside the most devious and evil plan for global domination ever conceived, where would you look? You don’t have to read the New York Times or Sputnik either, you know? I can show you a veritable “truth barometer” where U.S. and western allied intentions are concerned. Looking at this National Committee for a Free Europe we find key politicians involved, the media including newspapers and the movie industry, the military, experts at psychological warfare, and people who were even involved in the Russian Revolution of 1917. Does this surprise you? Well, maybe if I call your attention to who runs American propaganda nowadays, some correlations can be drawn. In the past RFE/RL and other entities were orchestrated by something known as the Broadcast Board of Governors (BBG), which was comprised of nine members with expertise in the fields of mass communications, broadcast media, or international affairs, with the U.S. Secretary of State (now Rex Tillerson) serving in a supposed ex officio capacity. Many of the current BBG board were installed during the Obama administration such as PR guru, Michael Kempner of MWW. Looking at this lineup we find what amounts to a group of people who appear as mini-me remakes of the original Free Europe committee. The BBG today more or less collaborated with the National Security Council, and operates under the mantle of President Trump. What’s interesting for me though, and perhaps for you, was the Free Europe forebear’s profiles and how similar those were to today’s propaganda henchmen. I’ve mentioned Dulles, but others like Lucius D. Clay, who was the deputy to General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower in1945, and the deputy military governor of Germany in 1946 bear re-intensified scrutiny today. No one reading this will recall that is was Clay who either pardoned or shortened the sentences of such notorious Nazi war criminals as, Ilse Koch, the “Beast of Buchenwald,” and Erwin Metz and Hauptmann Ludwig Merz, who were commanders at the infamous Bergba, Thuringia slave labor camp. The fact that Allen Dulles was accused of ferrying top Nazis out of Germany before war’s end, it illuminates further how diabolical these stealthy men were (are).

General Clay is one of the denizens that nobody remembers, but legendary filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille is the key figure that trans connects our bullshit geo-strategies of the past with the idiotic ideals of today. Yes, DeMille was one of the National Committee for a Free Europe along with; Dulles, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Clay, American magazine magnate Henry Luce (TIME, Life, Fortune), and a man named Charles Douglas Jackson. If DeMille is the key linkage to today’s propaganda strategies, it is this Jackson fellow that frames America’s intentions over the past 70 years. It was Jackson who was Deputy Chief at the Psychological Warfare Division, SHAEF at the end of WW II, and later the key organizer of the now infamous Bilderberg Group. But the damnable career of this man and the others is perhaps best illustrated with his role alongside Dulles, TIME founder Luce, and after he became a Time/Life boss. Most readers will recall the Abraham Zapruder taken when President Kennedy was shot in Dallas. Well, it was Jackson who purchased it on behalf of Time/Life to ostensibly “protect the integrity of the film” for posterity. The speculation has always been that this move was only to ensure the truth was kept from the American people. Upon viewing the film, Jackson ordered it locked in a vault at the Time/Life building in Manhattan.

A Message from the Emergency Broadcast Network

The studied reader will now have come full circle. Now you know why the Russians detained current BBG board member Jeff Shell, the head of Chairman of Universal Filmed Entertainment Group, Comcast Corporation when he tried to enter Russia recently. Now readers can understand why those Neilsen ratings and other propaganda seem to favor the neocon/liberal order’s narrative, for BBG board member Karen Kornbluh has worked for Neilsen, in the Clinton administration. Looking at the Chairman of the Board of the BBG we find the President/CEO of Washington think tank the Hudson Institute, tweeting about America needing “boost-phase missile defense” – and I thought these people were focused on broadcasting standards for the world! Then there’s Dr. Leon Aron, author of the telling collection of essays like, “Putin’s Russia: How it rose, how it is maintained, and how it might end.” An American Enterprise Institute scholar, this neocon is the poster child for big business’ influence on past and current administrations. AEI was behind Bush, Obama, and now Trump’s idiotic climate policies are clearly the work of these people. Tillerson’s Exxon donated nearly a million to the institute, the same entity exposed by The Guardian for offering what amounted to bribes for scientists who would debunk global warming claims. Whew! Once again the rabbit hole goes deeper, and deeper, and deeper into what I guess we should call “the deep state.” Let me sum up before we get lost in this quagmire.

How can the reader take all this and squeeze from truth out of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL), CNN, The New York Times, and the myriad think tanks conniving for the new order? Read the headline, “EU Issues Call To Action To Combat Russian ‘Propaganda” – understand it is blatant propaganda and U.S. State Department (Trump) narrative – and assume the pot is calling the kettle black again. Assume that THIS administration wants EXACTLY the same thing the past administrations have. Russia as the convenient villain in a never-ending battle for global domination and greed. Assume these people are bold faced liars who will do anything to ensure their mission is accomplished. And THAT mission has nothing to do with freedom, democracy, and world peace. And if the blatant logic and the historic fact of my argument does not grab you fence riders, then read that article at EFU/RL to the bottom, where you’ll find reporting by Rikard Jozwiak and the Agence France-Presse (AFP), who is the Brussels reporter for RFU/RL, a Politico writer, whose also used on the Kyiv Post, The Atlantic, Business Insider, and other “useful” media. Discover the RFU/RL mission, think the opposite, and there is the truth on most matters geo-political – thank you RFU/RL for saving us all so much valuable time and aggravation. Maybe Brussels should let you run, so we know what the neocon/liberal order is up to.
