We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Panama Papers – Sheep-Dipped CIA Dirty Ops

Click here to access article by F. William Engdahl from New Eastern Outlook.

Although the investigative details provided by Engdahl do not appear to be original, still he puts all of them together in this tightly knit essay. See, for example, this article entitled "Why most of the Panama Papers have been kept in the dark?" by a Greek writer posted online by the unbalanced evolution of homo sapienson on April 13th. Also read today's article from the same online source, which argues that Panama Papers incident may signal a new tactic by Empire operatives:
The establishment could feed the mainstream information channels with huge amounts of controlled data, to overshadow crucial revelations by WikiLeaks, Snowden, or other truly independent whistleblowers, and gradually wipe them out from the field of the leak "industry". It's easy someone to understand that such a development would mean the end of real leaks and revelations.
The release of the Panama Papers for me always reeked of a psy-ops program that is so typical of the operations of the Empire's deep state.  The Empire's psy-ops agents seem to be active on daily basis to manipulate public opinion to support the interests of the ruling transnational capitalist class that forms the supporting foundation of the US-led Empire. The selective nature of corporate media coverage that used the Panama Papers disclosure to smear Putin and other figures who have not cooperated fully with Imperial directors was so obvious from the beginning. 

Engdahl's article connects the dots from a pro-NATO German media firm, Süddeutsche Zeitung, that first released this "leak", to a non-profit organization, International Consortium of Investigative Journalism, to a Washington DC-based Center for Public Integrity to funders such as the following:
  • George Soros’ Open Society Foundations
  • Rockefeller Brothers Fund
  • Rockefeller Family Fund
  • Carnegie Corporation
  • Ford Foundation
  • Foundation for National Progress, Soros-backed mother of Mother Jones
  • Fidelity Brokerage Services, second largest mutual fund in the world
And, finally to close the circle of this nefarious web of connections, Engdahl points to a co-founder of Mossack Fonseca, the offshore tax haven in Panama: he is a Nazi decedent who has worked for the CIA.
