Google’s ‘Regime Change’ Agent, Jared Cohen
NOTE: This article is a research stub to Google Hails Age of Cyber War & Digital Revolution
While a new book by Google executives Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen heralds the New Digital Age, while acknowledging their role in instigating shifts in world order.
In the coming age, billions more in the developed world will gain access to the Internet and digital world, while the surveillance state and power of computers will grow, according to projections by leading Google executives Eric Schmidt (current executive chairman and former CEO) and Jared Cohen (Google Ideas think tank director) in a new book ‘The New Digital Age: Reshaping the Future of People, Nations and Business.’
A promo video for their book outlines topics which outline a ‘democratized’ but nonetheless controlled world closely aligned with many known objectives of the emerging global controllers, many of whom meet annually at Bilderberg and regularly frequent other elitist roundtable groups.
Further, the book is endorsed by a who’s who of new world order agenda players.
Google co-authors Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen, both helping to develop the global/national security matrix, argue that the coming digital era will be marked by military action in cyber-warfare, digitally-driven revolutions (think Arab Spring uprisings), total surveillance (online and physical), and the end of the “delete” button, meaning that privacy, anonymity and undos will be replaced by a permanent database that will essential log entire digital record footprints for individuals.
Jared Cohen is an interesting figure in relation to this agenda, as the founder and director of Google Ideas, a “think/do tank” created at the behest of Eric Schmidt in 2010 that has “come under scrutiny for its links with the US State Department and its ‘regime change’ activities.” Indeed, Cohen, also a Council on Foreign Relations senior fellow, worked for the State Department on the Policy Planning Staff under Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice and later under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during 2006-2010.
Rice wrote in her book No Higher Honor that Cohen
“would use his position at Policy Planning to begin to integrate social media into our diplomatic tool kit. That would pay off handsomely some years later, when Twitter and Facebook became accelerants of democratic change in the Middle East.“
Wikipedia further notes that Cohen “played an instrumental role in helping shape counter-radicalization strategies and advised on US policy towards Iran and the Middle East” and that he led delegations to specific locales starting in 2009, including Iraq, Russia, Mexico, Congo and Syria.
Alternative news reporter Tony Cartalucci has made a strong on-going case (over the course of many articles) exposing how the U.S. State Department in conjunction with NGOs like National Endowment for Democracy and Freedom House as well as think tanks like Brookings and Soros/Brzezinski’s International Crisis Group fomented the Arab Spring to foster general upheaval in the Mid-East region.
These Western entities essentially created astroturf democracy by sponsoring groups like the April 6 movement who brought the Egyptian revolution – in turn hijacked and taken over by a repressive military regime – into being, with great aid from online social media organization. The appearance of grassroots democracy triumphing over dug-in dictators in Egypt and elsewhere in the regime gave the world reason to cheer, while masking the hidden hand of Anglo-American establishment control.
The NY Times article “Spring Awakening: How an Egyptian Revolution Began on Facebook” discusses the famous role of Wael Ghonim, an Egyptian and Google marketing executive who created the “We Are All Khaled Said” Facebook page that sparked outrage and contributed toward the now infamous uprising at Tahrir Square.
According to Wikipedia, Google Ideas head Jared Cohen was “in Egypt during the January 25, 2011 revolution. According to Wael Ghonim, the Egyptian security forces interrogated him about his relationship with Cohen during his initial days of incarceration.”
Indeed, documents have revealed that Cohen had dinner with Wael Ghonim in January 2011, just before the revolution surfaced.
Moreover, Google CEO Eric Schmidt publicly praised the actions of Wael Ghonim, stating that he was “very proud,” while claiming to have had no previous discussions with Ghonim about protest actions. (NY Times, Google Praises Executive’s Role in Egypt Revolt)
Leaked documents revealed that Stratfor, a private intelligence agency with significant overlap in government activity, took note of Jared Cohen after being tipped off by a Google contact. The documents make clear that a ‘regime change’ operation was underway, with questions from Google and Stratfor employees about whether the “loose cannon” was “driving without a license” and whether Cohen was operating under State Department or White House license, or was merely a “hippie activist.”
The documents also show concern that as a Jew manipulating politics in the Muslim-dominated middle east, Cohen was setting himself up to get ‘whacked.’ “Cohen might end up having an accident if he is not careful. This is not child’s play,” Stratfor email correspondence showed, after discussing Cohen’s plans to travel to the UAE, Azerbaijan and Turkey.
Burton, a Stratfor vice-president for counter-terrorism responded with a chilling expression of tacit support for Cohen’s death as a means of exposing the effort underway:
“GOOGLE is getting WH [White House] and State Dept. support and air cover. In reality, they are doing things the CIA cannot do. But, I agree with you. He’s going to get himself kidnapped or killed. Might be the best thing to happen to expose GOOGLE’s covert role in foaming up-risings, to be blunt. The US Gov’t can then disavow knowledge and GOOGLE is left holding the shit bag.” (doc-id 1121800)
Without a doubt, Google has a documented role in fomenting the Arab Spring uprisings, and it likely played a role in the ‘hot’ take overs in Libya and Syria as well. The dominoes are connected and all paths lead to Persia, where Jared Cohen spent time and has been sowing the seeds of dissent through an unconventional and highly technological warfare strategy. Stratfor pinned the connection to Cohen’s higher up, Eric Schmidt, with whom he has now written a book in part to explain away the unprecedented role of technology in revolution – as meaningful as the use of the printing press in establishing and promoting Anglican Christianity and the American and French Revolutions. Stratfor documents reveal these concerns in tracing Cohen’s role:
“Why hasn’t Google cut ties to Cohen yet? Or is Cohen’s activity being endorsed by those higher up in the [company] than your contact?”
In turn, Burton replied, “Cohen’s rabbi is Eric Schmidt and Obama lackey. My source is trying to find out if the billionaire owners are backing Cohen’s efforts for regime change.” (doc-id 1111729)
Someone like Jared Cohen, with the backing of someone like Eric Schmidt, who meets annually with powerful luminaries at their confabs, is ripe to bring a new world order dreams into fruition – one round of chaos at a time. The clean-up is handled by partners, the backing comes from the government and political/economic victories mean dividends for shareholders in the covert action.
