NGO Invisible Children’s Kony 2012, a documentary about the sketchy African warlord Joseph Kony, went viral on YouTube last week.
“With its slick Hollywood production values, the film has been an almost instant viral success, dominating Twitter worldwide and having one of the fastest ever take-offs on You Tube,”Polly Curtis and Tom McCarthy wrote for the Guardian on Thursday. “The hashtag #stopkony has had hundreds of thousands of tweets, and millions of people now know something about Uganda and what is happening to children there. Support for the campaign to end the conflict in the country this year is spreading.”
A constellation of celebrities and politicians have lined up behind the film and support its call to track down Joseph Kony of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRC) and put him in the docket at the United Nation’s International Criminal Court for exploiting children in his war in Uganda. Lady GaGa, Bill Gates, George Clooney, Bill Clinton, Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs, Harry Reid, Angeline Jolie and other supposedly “liberal” notables are behind the Invisible Children plan to snag Kony before the end of 2012. The film was tweeted by the likes of Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Oprah Winfrey, and Ryan Seacrest.
Film star and CFR “ambassador”Angelina Jolievoiced her support last week during the Third Annual Women In The World Summit in New York. Jolie’s image appears near the end of Kony 2012 (a virtual blessing of the effort by the CFR, although the globalist confab has publicly complained about the cynical manipulation of facts by Invisible Children).
Kony 2012 may seem to focus on yet another humanitarian issue supported by caring liberals, but in fact it is part of a larger geopolitical objective devised by the globalists. While Invisible Children’s finances are murky, there is evidence showing that it is a project supported by USAID, the “civilian foreign aid” agency run out of the NSC and the State Department that shares “a close working relationship with the CIA.”
USAID stands accused of working to undermine governments in a number of countries, including Haiti, Venezuela, Cuba, Bolivia, Uruguay, Sri Lanka and Eritrea. “USAID is the collaborator and executor of CIA plots, and secret plans of the State Department,” writes Ajit Randeniya for a Sri Lankan website. “Its role is to act as an instrument of CIA penetration into civil society by enabling the ‘legitimate’ funding aimed at promoting U.S. foreign policy abroad and influencing internal politics of foreign nations.”
In 2009, the USAID boasted about its “speed” in addressing issues in Uganda and the Acholi sub-region of Africa and admitted supporting Invisible Children. Apparently mindful of this connection, several blogs containing references to USAID posted by Invisible Children or its supporters have been scrubbed from the internet. “USAID” was a tag on the group’s tumblr.
Propaganda on parade: Both sides of the establishment political party can agree on expanding Africom’s role.
as we noted in October, the LRA has provided an ideal pretext for the global elite as they expand their reach into Africa. Following the adoption of the LRA Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Bill by Congress in 2009 that was signed by Obama in early 2010, the U.S. sent soldiers to Uganda under the guise of tracking down the LRA and capturing Kony (who has not been seen since 2006 and may in fact be dead). He is but another sinister figure in a globalist arranged pantheon of evil-doers, including the late Osama bin Laden.
“Although the U.S. forces are combat-equipped, they will only be providing information, advice, and assistance to partner nation forces, and they will not themselves engage LRA forces unless necessary for self-defense,”Obama said on October 14. A similar caveat prior to the Vietnam War led to the death of nearly 60,000 American soldiers and around 3 million Southeast Asians.
Following Obama’s unconstitutional deployment of troops without congressional approval, the establishment media dutifully provided propaganda justifying the move. It dredged up the “humanitarian crises” of Rwanda and Bosnia. The latter “crisis” resulted in Bill Clinton’s 1999 targeting of civilian infrastructure and civilian facilities in Yugoslavia, including houses, hospitals, schools, trains, factories, power stations, and broadcasting facilities. The gruesome toll was sidestepped by the corporate media as the sanitized “humanitarian effort” was praised by so-called liberals who would later excoriate Bush for his illegal wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Obama’s campaign against Kony and the LRC was similarly cast as a noble humanitarian gesture – this time with the spotlight on Kony’s use of children combatants – and the fact that Uganda and much of Africa are considered a prized strategic asset is ignored. Back in 2005, investigative journalist Wayne Madsen reported that the U.S. had major communications and listening stations in Uganda’s Ruwenzori Mountains. Since then, Africom has set-up a sprawling operation there. Libya was its first “engagement.”
In what is now a well-established pattern, the global elite exploited tensions created by the disastrous economic impact of its loan sharking operation and moved to establish a sphere of influence in a region historically dominated by the former colonial powers of France and Belgium.
Kony 2012 is but another piece of slick propaganda designed to tug on the heart strings – and the purse strings – of ignorant Americans who are clueless about the real reasons why the globalists are now moving into Africa in a big way. Invisible Children’s connections to USAID and thus the CIA should put the effort in context.
Africa is one of several targets prized by the globalists as they move to grab vital natural resources, consolidate power and unleash their monetary enslavement and world totalitarian government end game around the globe.
