(THE INTEL HUB) Wired Magazine has just reported that Ahmed Maher, of the infamous US-funded Egyptian “April 6″ revolutionary movement that helped the US topple Egypt’s government early in 2011, is now back in Washington D.C. “advising” Occupy Wall Street protesters, face-to-face in McPherson Square.
The article claims that protesters throughout the US movement have cited (ironically) protests in Cairo as their “inspiration” to rise up against corruption in their government and financial institutions.
While the Wired piece doesn’t explain where Maher honed his “revolutionary” skills, it does mention vaguely that he was in D.C. on invitation from an unnamed university professor and that next he would be headed toNew York City to “advise” protesters there.
This of course isn’t Maher’s first trip to the United States. Years before the Egyptian revolution, the United States was quietly preparing a global army of youth cannon fodder to fuel region wide conflagrations throughout the world, both politically and literally.
Maher’s April 6 organization had been in New York City for the US State Department’s first “Alliance for Youth Movements Summit” in 2008.
His group then traveled to Serbia to train under the US-funded “CANVAS” organization before returning to Egypt in 2010 with US International Crisis Group (ICG) operative Mohamed ElBaradei to spend the next year building up for the “Arab Spring.”
Considering the depth of planning and preparation by the US State Department, with the cooperation of other US agencies, departments, and corporations, including the mainstream-media, we can now see the full measure of collective duplicity throughout America’s establishment.
As many may remember, the United States acted with total surprise as the “Arab Spring” unfolded, despite having engineered it years in advance and having financial and tactical contacts with all the leading opposition groups.
In Egypt’s case, Mohamed ElBaradei and his “April 6″ organization led by Maher, were in direct contact with some of America’s most influential power brokers, including Zbigniew Brzezinski and George Soros and to a lesser extent, Samuel Berger, Kenneth Adelman (Freedom House), General Wesley Clark, and Richard Armitage via the ICG.
Additionally, ICG includes Shimon Peres, President of Israel, as well as Stanley Fischer, governor of the Bank of Israel. Israel too feigned great displeasure, uncertainty, and surprise over a regional gambitthey most certainly played a role in.
Maher’s return to the United States may or may not hold any significance depending on just how much “advising” he does and the intended duration of his stay. It also depends largely on whether or not the corporate-media leaps on the story and sensationalizes it.
However it is rather alarming that Americans who claim Maher and his April 6 Movement as an inspiration for their bid to rein in a corrupt government and financial system, are ignorant of the fact that Maher and his movement are both products of that very corrupt, insidious system.
For those wondering where the US-funded revolution led Maher’s fellow Egyptians, the answer is a military dictatorship and Maher’s American sponsors parading through Cairo preparing to ransack it with “economic liberalization” and the spread of Wall Street-London economic hegemony over Egypt.
While some may consider that a failure – in reality that is exactly what the US State Department and the corporate-financier interests that fund and steer US policy had intended all along. Maher, for his part, may have been naive enough to believe he was receiving help to usher in real change for Egypt, and maybe not.
If Egypt should inspire any American participating in the Occupy Wall Street movement, it should be because it serves as a reminder to always follow the money, identify the associations between groups and personalities, name names, use logic and reason ahead of emotions, and understand exactly what your goals are and where they will lead you.
More specifically, these goals must be pragmatic more than anything else. A very specific program with a timetable and enumerated means to carry it out would be a start.
However, boycotting and replacing Wall Street while using local and state government to reclaim our sovereignty from the overreaching tyranny of the Federal government would be far more effective than simply congregating in the streets and hoping for a completely compromised system, with the audacity to sow revolution across the globe, to somehow be hoist with its own petard.
Egypt’s fate may not be far off from that of America. There is a very real threat of a military dictatorship riding in under false “heroic” pretenses in the US as well. Street mobs are this government’s specialty, no one understands them better, and no one on earth is better prepared to deal with them – especially mobs that are disorganized, aimless, and incapable of discerning that those walking amongst them, inspiring them, even leading them, are literally agents of the very system they seek to reform.

(Charlie Grapski) The following photograph taken by opednews.com‘s Cheryl Biren shows a confrontation in the lobby of the National Air and Space Museum between two individuals and an officer shortly before video shows officers with the Museum’s security forces rush outside indiscriminately pepper-spraying numerous individuals.
It appears that one of the two in the confrontation with the security officer is Patrick Howley, Assistant Editor of The American Spectator. [See the following photograph in which Howley's Facebook Profile Photo is side-by-side with the person pictured at the Air and Space Museum]
Immediately after the incident began hitting the newswires Howley published a “Breaking News” story with The American Spectator online in which he reveals that he had consciously infiltrated the group on Friday with the intent to discredit the movement. He states that “as far as anyone knew I was part of this cause — a cause that I had infiltrated the day before in order to mock and undermine in the pages ofThe American Spectator — and I wasn’t giving up before I had my story.”
According to Howley’s story he joined the group in its march toward the Air and Space Museum but the protesters on the march were unwilling to be confrontational. He states “they lack the nerve to confront authority. From estimates within the protest, only ten people were pepper-sprayed, and as far as I could tell I was the only one who got inside.”
He claims that upon arrival at the Museum the group of approximately one hundred protesters split into two factions with the smaller of the two “rushing the doors,” the majority “staying behind.” Howley then admits in his piece that he snuck past the guard at the first entrance in order to “infiltrate” the building and then confronted another guard. He then “sprinted toward the door” at which time he was first hit with pepper-spray.
As he describes his next actions “I forced myself into the doors and sprinted blindly across the floor of the Air and Space Museum, drawing the attention of hundreds of stunned khaki-clad tourists (some of whom began snapping off disposable-camera portraits of me).”
Fully inside, despite the orders of the security guards that the Museum was closed to the public, Howley made his way upstairs – to the location where a banner was unfurled protesting the Museum’s exhibit of unmanned drone weapons.
“I strained to glance behind me at the dozens of protesters I was sure were backing me up, and then I got hit again, this time with a cold realization: I was the only one who had made it through the doors. As two guards pointed at me and started running, I dodged a circle of gawking old housewives and bolted upstairs.”
He then found himself “stumbling around aircraft displays with just enough vision to keep tabs on my uniformed pursuers. “The museum is now closed!” screamed one of the guards as alarms sounded. “Everyone make your way to the exits immediately!” Using my jacket to cover my face — which I could feel swelling to Elephant Man proportions — I ducked through the confused tourists and raced out the exit. “Hey, you!” shouted a female guard reaching for my arm. “Get back here!” But I was already down the steps and out of sight.”
Howley refers to the Museum as “the scene of my crime.” In light of his detailed description of his activities today the fact that they clearly document the commission of the crime of trespassing on federal property, if not the intent to incite a riot there, these admissions should not be taken lightly or ignored. As a result of Howley’s activities a large number of people were subjected to pepper-spray attacks including journalists and tourists who had nothing to do with the protest. Given the negative light that the press is attempting to spin this incident with regard to the ongoing occupations, from Wall Street and D.C. and now spreading to Main Streets across the country, the presence and admitted activities of this self-proclaimed agent provacateur should be brought to the attention of federal law enforcement officials.
It is highly likely that the events that occurred would not have taken the turn they did if it were not for Howley’s admitted adventure in an effort to discredit the Occupy movement. So before the public, the media, and officials turn their attention negatively towards the protests and the protesters there needs to be a critical eye turned on the role of the American Spectator and the role played in these events by its editorial staff. If arrests were made at this incident, and even if none were, the admissions of Howley published brazenly in the pages of his Conservative magazine and bragged about on his Facebook page should lead to an official investigation into his role and that of his employer in the events in Washington D.C. today and should be seen as at least part of the causal nexus that led to the inappropriate use of force that along with Howley negatively affected many who were innocent of any crime other than being at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Ironically Howley concludes the story of his adventure mocking the lack of courage of the protesters, who he admitted did not seek – as he did – to confront the authorities, by praising the courage of the guards who twice pepper-sprayed him.
“As I scrambled away from the scene of my crime, a police officer outside the museum gates pointed at my eyes, puffed out of his chest, and shouted: “Yeah, that’s right. That’s right.” He was proud that I had been pepper-sprayed, and, oddly, so was I. I deserved to get a face full of high-grade pepper, and the guards who sprayed me acted with more courage than I saw from any of the protesters. If you’re looking for something to commend these days in America, start with those guards.”
The admissions of Patrick Howley, published in The American Spectator for all to see, require those across the country, both the public and its officials, to take a closer and more critical look at today’s event’s in the Nation’s capital. Who was really to blame for the chaos and disruption of a Federal Museum? Who should be held responsible for those who were harmed in the melee that took place after Howley admits he defied the orders of the legal authorities and stormed into the building? And how should the story of today’s events unfold in the Nation’s media over the next several days?
VIDEO NEWS REPORT FROM MSNBC BELOW:
(INFOWARS) A new video from the ‘Occupy DC’ event in Washington betrays how leftist agitators are busy trying to drown out any message that doesn’t correlate with their collectivist “consensus,” as the First Amendment is sabotaged when a freelance journalist is blocked from filming a public protest.
It seems as though some of the agitators who have latched on to the ‘Occupy’ movement are only happy with people expressing their First Amendment right if the participant completely agrees with their point of view.
Two foul-mouthed leftists attempt to block independent journalist Adam Kokesh from filming a public protest taking place in a public square, making inane arguments about the participants feeling threatened by appearing on camera, despite the fact that they are demonstrating in the middle of America’s capital city.
In reality, Kokesh’s previous videos, in which he documented how the protests were being misdirected by statist, Obama supporting hypocrites were the likely source of the agitators’ grievance with being filmed.
It seems the two individuals in the clip are uncomfortable with the prospect of their message reaching a wider audience, which is bizarre to say it’s supposed to be part of a mass protest movement.
The agitators didn’t want Kokesh filming their creepy “consensus” meeting, strange ritualistic get-togethers which have been characterized by cult-like chanting, weird hand signals and zombie-like collectivist mind control.
As Mike Adams, who has studied linguistics and psychology, points out in his article today, “The whole point of this experience is to eliminate the individual mind and train everyone to think, and say, and do exactly what they are told to do by a “leaderless leader” who is really a mind control manipulator.”
“Free-thinking individuals do not engage in this kind of behavior! If I had witnessed this in person, I would have shouted out, “You are all zombies!” at which point I’m sure I would probably need my zombie defender flamethrower to roast the mindless masses as they tried to swarm over me with their “one mind” attack.”
It is now clear that statist agitators and leftist lobby groups with direct ties to the Democratic Party and the Obama administration are busy trying to co-opt the Occupy Wall Street movement and anoint themselves as leaders of this so-called “leaderless” resistance.
That’s why agitators from MoveOn.org and other establishment-backed groups are deliberately trying to ostracize any activists who deviate from the collective borg hive and attempt to educate OWS protesters about the Federal Reserve, Ron Paul, or anything that actually poses a threat to the real epicenter of economic corruption.
Many of the genuine ‘Occupy’ demonstrators who started the movement are expressing their frustration about this tactic of subversion on the official Occupy Wall Street website.
Our own reporters and colleagues have also witnessed how the establishment left is trying to co-opt the demonstrations. Infowars reporter Derrin McBreen’s son, Kelen McBreen, encountered collectivists who had assumed leadership roles at the Occupy Austin event who told him that “Ron Paul signs are not welcome here,” after he held up a sign advocating the sound money policies of the Texan Congressman.
These same individuals then ludicrously claimed that the Tea Party was attempting to infiltrate the ‘Occupy’ movement.
Watch the clip below in which WeAreChange San Antonio activist Matthew Medina exposes how MoveOn.org have dispatched their agitators to divide the protesters on grounds of race and gender, while acting as thought police in attempting to ring-fence what ideas can and cannot be aired.
