NATO or, No Alliance is Too Obscene, is evidence prima facie democracy is a failed experiment in the western civilized experience. Today’s focus is a lesson in ‘democratic principles’ trashing the rule of law.

Turkey:

  1. The highest rate of incarcerated journalists in the world with 140 recently arrested and 200 media outlets shut down.
  2. 120,000 ‘suspect’ government employees fired, including state officers, police officers, teachers, lawyers, judges, prosecutors, all kinds of professionals, in short, anyone opposed to Erdogan
  3. 40,000 arrested
  4. 12 universities shuttered and 1,000 professors fired per: “it has very rapidly turned into a political witch hunt to combine all the political opponents of president Erdogan or the AK party. As part of this, hundreds of academics have been dismissed from their positions, all valuable professors or researchers”

That is, without a doubt, the biggest convicted group of ‘coup plotters’ in the annals of history. Against this backdrop, Pasha Erdogan held his subsequent  ‘make me president for life’ referendum, requiring changing the electoral rules mid-vote so un-certified ballots could be used to push his ‘yes’ vote over the top; and when the professional international monitors officially noted this, the new Emir of Turkey, that is Erdogan, told them “Know your place

Then, USA president ‘The Donald’ called and wished Erdogan countless erotic blow-jobs from his sex slaves, er, political prisoners, or whatever it is they actually say when the rule of law has been anally gang-raped, but acting as if this were the most felicitous possible outcome for a democracy in the western alliance constituting NATO. Then, Trump invited Erdogan to the White House, no doubt to meet with de facto President  Dick Cheney, er, I meant religious fascist Mike Pence.

Now, all of this culminates in the USA’s General James ‘mad dog’ Mattis popping up in Israel to announce Assad goes on gassing his own people when we know it is journalists, judges, police, prosecutors and yes, even members of parliament, are jailed in Turkey for revealing it was Turkish intelligence had arranged the sarin attack that killed well over 1,000 ordinary Syrians in August 2013 (blamed on Assad.)

If anyone misses the significance of this most recent, it has to do with the paranoid-fascist-nationalist (but opposed to USA war in Syria) Steve Bannon has been sidelined on national security issues; Trump son-in-law (gangster) Jared Kushner (read Bibi via Ambassador Friedman), Mike Pence and the generals, primarily, now hold the ‘national security’ portfolio. In a nutshell, there’s the 180 degree Trump turnaround on Syria.

How did this cocktail suddenly all come around to the Pentagon giving field commanders authorization to order up any weapons strike they please per Mad Dog Mattis telling his generals:

“It’s not the same as it was, you don’t have to ask us before you drop a MOAB” [Massive Ordinance Air Blast or mother of all bombs]

There is a likely simple answer. The military hotline set up between the USA and Russians in Syria had been used to notify the Russians to get ‘out of the way’ prior to the USA’s launch of 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles and the 30 minutes notice had been quite adequate for the Russians to get direction from the Kremlin; where subsequently the Russians had employed their Syria based S-300 and S-400 surface to air missile batteries to knock down 36 of the Tomahawks, with 23 Tomahawks through to target, denials on all parties part notwithstanding (the Saker makes a case for electronic warfare in an article that is quite astute until he demonstrates profound ignorance of the USA body politic, Gabbard stands no chance in the present fixed system and Pence, who may be the de facto president already, is by far more dangerous than Trump.)

If this were (it’s the only sensible answer if the Russians are reporting  accurately, the Tomahawk cruise missile shouldn’t develop a nearly 70% failure rate overnight and we know the Americans routinely lie) what had happened, the American generals had been humiliated by a clear message from Putin: Russia has drawn a line in the sand and that line is in Syria. But the American generals hubris is too great to grasp the full implications (alternatively, they expect Jesus to return and ‘save’ them.)

The Americans claim all 59 Tomahawks were on. The Russians state 36 were off and behave as though puzzled by the fact. But it is the subsequent behavior of the Americans that is most telling. Mattis gives his generals free reins to employ any weapon in the field (one presumes tactical nuclear weapons, the MOAB is close) without pre-authorization, shows up in Israel claiming Assad is gassing the Syrians, and suddenly Bibi has a new best friend and the ‘Greater Israel’ project sees new horizons open up with the American alliance in agreement 1) Assad must go and be replaced with a compliant head (of a failed state) in Syria, splitting off Hezbollah from Iran and 2) Iran is the common animus.

Bibi expects the Americans will provide the muscle to fend off Russia, the Americans expect the Israelis will be the platform to take down Iran (something Netanyahu couldn’t get Bush to agree to, let alone Obama.)

And so it is the Mike Pence aligned messianic generals at the Pentagon propose entering a Christian crusader’s sexually repressed orgy of violence together with the messianic (waiting to be saved from themselves) Israelis, all pointed to literal Armageddon.

Meanwhile, back in NATO’s Turkey, Erdogan appears capable of back-stabbing any entity he does business with; at one time or another he’s back-stabbed the Russians, he’s back-stabbed the European Union, he’s back-stabbed the Americans, but most tellingly, Erdogan has back-stabbed his own people.

But that only makes Erdogan an equal partner in NATO; who’ve collectively back-stabbed civilization, whether trading for oil with Islamic State, arming al-Qaida, or more recently, setting the stage for a civilization ending war.

Erdogan

Cold-blooded killer of too many Syrians and Iraqis to count

NATO’s UPGRADED GLADIO is the subject of this essay, where the western democracies enemy Islamic State is Turkey’s favorite fuck-buddy. Call it a play on the Middle East expression ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Only here it is ‘my enemy is my friend’s favorite fuck.’

This week, a result of a lawsuit filed personally by the president of Turkey (Edogan, image on left), two courageous journalists were arrested and charged with treason, terrorism and  revealing state secrets. What had they done? Revealed Turkish intelligence had been caught by some over-zealous local gendarmes when running guns and ammunition to hard-line Islamist militia with close ties to al-Qaida:

Now, if that were not enough concerning NATO member Turkey’s efforts in ‘the war on terror’, we can back up a mere five weeks and understand Erdogan’s paranoia of free press; it was in October, 2015, two members of Turkey’s parliament revealed it was Erdogan’s intelligence services had arranged the 2013 Sarin gas attack that had killed over 1,300 Syrians:

Zaman2.jpg - 1

Of course this had been blamed on Basher al-Assad by Hussein Obama:

“The evidence is overwhelming that the Assad regime used such weapons on August 21st. U.N. inspectors gave a clear accounting that advanced rockets fired large quantities of sarin gas at civilians. These rockets were fired from a regime-controlled neighborhood and landed in opposition neighborhoods” -Barack Obama

I guess we could call that one ‘my friend fucks my enemy for me.’

And, of course, this past week has been all about satellite images and Russian warplane video of Islamic State tankers exporting oil via… you might have guessed it, Turkey. Well, I guess the warplane images indicate ISIS ‘suddenly not shipping quite as much oil.’ The USA hadn’t even noticed these targets prior to the Russians hitting them, I suppose our religious right generals at the Pentagon would call that ‘sexual abstinence’

But this next guy would seem to think he’s been fucked in the ass over oil by Russia and that must be why Turkey ambushed a Russian bomber, his name is Hakan Fidan and he’s Erdogans’s intelligence chief:

Hakan Fidan rap sheet: Murdered more that 1,300 Syrians with sarin gas, blamed it on Assad; runs guns and ammunition to Islamic State; imports Islamic State oil to Turkey from Syria and Iraq; accessory to the murder of too many Syrians and Iraqis to count; a close Erdogan confidant

Now, let’s consider what Vladimir Putin had to say in relation to Turkey and by implication its intelligence services chief Hakan Fidan:

“We assume that the top political leadership of Turkey might not know anything about this [illegal oil trade]. Hard to believe, but it is theoretically possible. But if the top political leadership [in Turkey] doesn’t know anything about this, let them find out. I can state that there may be some elements of corruption, secret dealing, they should sort it out” -Vladimir Putin

I doubt Putin was in a good humor when he stated the preceding but his use of irony under the circumstance indicates he’s not in any mood to be fucked with; and furthermore indicates Turkey is going to be fucked but good.

Now, more or less ‘sticking’ with oil, lets look at some sound assumptions; our several intelligence agencies answer to the executive in the western democratic model. It follows, they report to the those same democracies bosses. So, what has Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND or German CIA) boss Gerhard Schindler been telling Angela Merkel? That Assad gassed his own people? Sorry but the BND reputation for intelligence in the region doesn’t allow for pigs growing wings:

Revelations over spying activities by the German foreign intelligence office Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) are undermining relations between Germany and Turkey at an already difficult time. According to a document acquired by Der Spiegel, the BND has been systematically wiretapping its NATO ally Turkey since at least 2009…

voyeur |voiˈyər, vwä-|
noun
a person who gains sexual pleasure from watching others when they are naked or engaged in sexual activity.
• a person who enjoys seeing the pain or distress of others.
DERIVATIVES
voyeurism |ˈvoiyəˌrizəm, voiˈyərˌizəm, vwäˈyər-| noun.
voyeuristic |ˌvoiyəˈristik, ˌvwäyə-| adjective.
voyeuristically adverb
ORIGIN early 20th cent.: from French, from voir ‘see.’

It’s safe to assume Angela Merkel knows whose fucking who when it comes to Turkey gassing Syrians:

The report quotes a US intelligence agent as saying: “No Western intelligence service has as good sources in Syria as the BND does.”

A member of the BND told the newspaper that the intelligence service was “proud of the important contribution [it] is making to the overthrow of the Assad regime.”

Gerhard Schindler, boss of German intelligence; accessory to the murder of too many Syrians and Iraqis to count

Now, when it comes to Islamic State doing a billion dollar oil business with Turkey, do you suppose the Germans, Angela Merkel particularly, could claim she ‘didn’t know’? After all, according to a United States Defense Intelligence Agency report, the whole idea of “the western powers” fostering the rise of Islamic State was to bugger Assad. Who’re “the western powers” other than Germany? France and its multinational Total Oil Company make a fine next step into the bordello where your enemy is your friend’s favorite fuck:

Bernard Bajolet, boss of Direction générale de la sécurité extérieure (French CIA), accessory to murder of 130 Parisians and accessory to the murder of too many Syrians and Iraqis to count

The French company has ignored threats from the central Iraqi government in Baghdad and signed oil deals directly with the semi-autonomous Kurdistan region, where crude reserves are plentiful and contract terms more attractive than in the south.

“This success confirms Total’s exploration strategy in Iraq,” said Marc Blaizot, senior vice president for exploration at Total

Now, what will French intelligence chief Bernard Bajolet have told France’s President Hollande about Kurdistan having to do with ‘my enemy is my friend’s favorite fuck?’

Well, according to oilprice.com, ‘Kurdistan’ is a deliberately planned for, broken away piece of Iraq where:

“It is important to understand that Northern Iraq is a major market for Turkish exports and that oil and gas from coming Iraqi Kurdish territory is moved on to worldwide markets through Turkey,” Jellyfish President Michael Bagley told Oilprice.com.

“From a financial and logistical standpoint, an Ankara-Erbil marriage is one of exceptional convenience. From our standpoint, Northern Iraq stands to be one of the next great investment areas in the Middle East, and so far, the KRG [kurdish regional government] has managed to out-play Baghdad in the natural resources and investment game”

AND THIS

Exxon-al_Qaida_deal.jpg - 1

Ninewa today is one of the last bastions of al-Qaeda in Iraq, and its blessing of the KRG-ExxonMobil deal is significant in terms of security

Did oilprice.com just say “al-Qaida in Iraq” gave a ‘security’ blessing to a Kurdish Regional Government deal with an oil company? I believe they did. Who is ‘al-Qaida in Iraq’ these days? Why it’s been recently re-branded as Islamic State. Huh. We could call this one ‘my friends who fuck my enemies who’re my friends.’ Or something like that.

alex-younger_MI6

Alex Younger, head of MI6 (British CIA), accessory to the murder of too many Syrians and Iraqis to count

So, how does that all fit into Turkey is a one billion dollar partner in Islamic State oil exports and no one says anything? Let’s ask the Brits:

The attorney general was consulted about Monday’s decision. Karmy-Jones told the court in pre-trial hearings that Gildo had worked with Jabhat al-Nusra, a “proscribed group considered to be al-Qaida in Syria”. He was photographed standing over dead bodies with his finger pointing to the sky

Well, it seems British intelligence had to ask the British courts not to prosecute because MI6 had been funneling arms to the very Syria al-Qaida branch the returning jihadi had fought with. We could call this one ‘I won’t let you fuck my terrorist friend because he helps me to fuck people I like to see fucked.’ Considering this, I kind of doubt we’d get a  straight answer concerning British Petroleum activities in Turkey, you think?

Our downstream business in Turkey dates back to the 1940s and now includes retail fuels, lubricants and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). We have over 600 dealer-owned and operated fuel stations throughout the country, as well as fuels and LPG terminals and storage facilities. ATAS, the former refinery and currently the largest fuels terminal in the Eastern Mediterranean, is 68% owned by BP. One of our most modern and high-tech lubricants plants is located in Gemlik

But David Cameron most certainly has a report on his desk pointing to BP had exported Kurdish oil via Turkey. Is British spy chief Alex Younger updating him on any BP related Islamic State exports? That’s his  job. Or maybe BP is informing Cameron direct, it’s not like his government keeps the multinational at arms length:

The Foreign Office, for example, held its annual “BP high level dinner” last July, “to strengthen the strategic relationship between BP and the FCO on global economic and energy issues”, according to heavily redacted documents marked “sensitive” and “restricted”. All the top FCO directors from the head of the diplomatic service down through the directors of the main regions, to the heads of the FCO economic, strategy, and “prosperity” units, were on the attendees list

I’ll bet Cameron accused Assad of gassing his own people too:

Cameron said he took “full and personal responsibility for the decision to recall parliament, for the decision to take a strong and principled stand against the gassing of children in Syria, and I take full responsibility for putting forward as generous a motion I could, to bring as many people with me as I could. Everyone who voted has to live with the way that they voted”

He actually meant to say ‘it’s easy to fuck ordinary Syrians [who Erdogan’s intelligence people gassed] when people suck up to my ‘Assad did it’ media lies’ (at The Guardian, no less.)

AND FINALLY

Airstrike_Leaflet

The ‘special relationship.’ How is it the Pentagon gives the [only just very recently noticed] Islamic State oil-tanker truck drivers 45 minutes warning before blowing up [a few, token] trucks delivering oil to Turkey?

ObamaPick

Serial killer of nations; cold-blooded killer of too many Syrians and Iraqis to count

I do believe the actual reason is linked to the screenshot of the article on delivery of arms to hard-line Islamists at the beginning of this essay; where in this related story…

Testimony from gendarmerie officers in court documents reviewed by Reuters allege that rocket parts, ammunition and semi-finished mortar shells were carried in trucks accompanied by state intelligence agency (MIT) officials more than a year ago to parts of Syria under Islamist control

…it is intelligence assets are the drivers of the trucks loaded with weapons delivered into Syria. One loaded Islamic State tanker truck driven out of Syria almost certainly out-values, by far, any truckload of weapons driven in. It follows, you don’t bomb your allied fuck-buddies’ fuckers who do the driving. Call it a matter of being discreet: ‘we won’t butt-fuck our fuck-buddies outside of the barracks.’

Meanwhile (this update comes precisely one day since I’d penned the preceding), Erdogan’s government henchmen have arrested and charged the police officials who’d initiated the investigation into illegal weapons transfers to jihadists in Syria:

Maj. Gen. Aydın and retired Col. Cihangiroğlu were arrested on charges of “obtaining confidential information for purposes of political or military espionage; disclosing confidential information pertaining to state security for espionage purposes; attempting to destroy or prevent the government of the Republic of Turkey from functioning; founding or leading an armed terrorist organization.”

Brig. Gen. Celepoğlu was arrested on charges of “attempting to destroy or prevent the government of the Republic of Turkey from functioning; founding or leading an armed terrorist organization.”

Two journalists from the Cumhuriyet daily, Editor-in-Chief Can Dündar and the Ankara representative Erdem Gül were arrested last week on similar charges after publishing footage that showed the arms [trucks] were carrying guns, contrary to earlier government claims that they were transporting humanitarian aid:

^ Erdogan’s ‘humanitarian aid

At the end of the day, if you’re a honest cop doing your job but cross Pasha Erdogan’s dirty dealings with ISIS and al-Qaida, the consequence is simple: “You’re fucked”

Don’t like this shit? Here’s a letter to copy, paste and send plus the email addresses of those people who’ll be most butt-hurt (German Parliamentarians) at having to do something about it: Send a Letter

*On behalf of the people of Paris*

16 December 2015 update: A Turkish member of parliament who spoke to Russia’s RT News about the export of sarin gas from Turkey to Syria has been charged with treason:

https://www.rt.com/news/326084-erdem-rt-interview-treason/

Note on the original post: In March 2016 Erdogan had ‘Today’s Zaman’ newspaper shut down, killing the links to the related stories. However  anticipating this, I saved screenshots and text of the Zaman article on Turkey supplying the sarin gas used at Ghouta, Syria in August 2013. That information is preserved HERE.

Inasmuch as this blog does time to time pick on Israel, the psychopath-cretin ‘Bibi’ Netanyahu and Mickey MOSSAD, it really gets old hearing from certain quarters ‘the joos’ are responsible for all gone wrong on this flat earth. In fact, Israel is little more than a small but troublesome state that, without the USA’s Christian Zionist backing, could only fantasize its’ out-sized ‘Greater Israel’ ambitions. That’s why this site does not typically obsess with the Israelis. The Israeli people are little different to most in democratic systems, many more or less decent people ruled by sociopaths who take advantage of office to entertain their own agenda; up to and inclusive of pursuing wars to detract from their many and great failings; whether alignment with religious extremists, incompetence, corruption, egomania, and often, all of the preceding. At the end of the day, Israel is little more than an outpost of empire, a settlement if you will, but just now in a critical circumstance.

Five Eyes (intelligence alliance of UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand & Australia), EU & NATO all overlap in what amounts to ‘the empire’ is my view of it all. There is quid pro quo arrangements throughout. The USA may sit at the top of the hierarchy, but it is the lateral relationships where the foundation is. This is where people miss a lot of what goes on; best exemplified in the autonomous but coordinated intelligence agencies actually aligned to certain corporate boards and associated personalities. When Exxon-Mobil didn’t like Donald Trump’s lack of foreign policy ambitions, on top of the obvious blackmail potential, the geopolitical engineers behind the curtain will pull any stunt necessary to favor those quislings they wish to see rise in the inner circle in case where Trump is clueless, and pull other stunts that will tie Trump’s hands in circumstance where he might go his own way. That appears to be where we’ve arrived at already, Trump has been captured and it’s not yet the first 100 days.

What is interesting these days is it all possibly will become more transparent as the Christian Zionist generals aligned with Mike Pence are in a delicate position – there are powerful corporate neoliberal forces with both common and divergent interests in their present alliance with Christian Zionists (and associated generals who’re actually opposed to the Trump foreign policy election agenda.) Between these, they control the mainstream media and the false-flag narrative, that’s what we see with the most recent Syria chemical crime accusations. If/when Trump is deposed, I expect this momentary alliance (more of a truce) to break down. With Pence in power, these Christian extremist generals will really come into their own and things will get interesting (if they don’t get us all killed with a manipulated Trump’s blown up ego before that.)

The globalist neo-liberals mainly just wish to be filthy rich from the world’s resource conflicts and be in control of it all. The Christian Zionists fully expect (and fundamentally believe in) apocalyptic wars.

Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner’s Zionism pandering to Bibi Netanyahu’s support for the overthrow of Assad (pushing the paranoid-fascist, but in some respects pragmatic, Steve Bannon, out of his central role at the White House, while giving the momentarily side-lined neocons a boost) appears to be playing into the hands of Mike Pence and the generals who’ll launch WWIII before the neoliberal Soros’ diaper can be changed at whatever dementia hostel he’s plotting the USA’s color revolution from.

What the mice at MOSSAD should understand is, the Christian Zionists (read Mike Pence and the generals) fully intend the flag of the crusaders will be the last one flying at the Temple Mount (and every Jew either dead or converted.)

Now, ‘mighty’ MOSSAD, how about rethinking that alliance with Franklin Graham (the insane Bibi notwithstanding.) Puzzle your sorry asses out of the dilemma you’ve created for yourselves; wherein the real power propping Israel up, the AIPAC Christian element, is concurrently dedicated to your ultimate demise (it’s their theology, stupid.)

A Heavenly Dialogue

George: Hey Lenny, have you seen Jesus? I’ve got a question for him.

Lenny: He’s never here on weekends, he ALWAYS goes to the Parallel Universe of Tikkun Olam.

George: Why is that?

Lenny: Quantum Mechanics and Communion, every Sunday he’d get all sorts of afflictions if he stuck around, you know, the ‘creating reality’ thing.

George: There has to be a joke in this, right?

Lenny: It’s actually worse than you’d want to think, since the evangelists put words in his mouth to eat Jesus’ body and drink his blood, the liberal Christians give him hives and if that weren’t bad enough, then you’ve got the right-wing pinheads coming down with this cannibal smack, oops, I meant cannibal snack .. all taking a bite out of him, the ultra-right parasite Catholics give him ringworm, the fascist parasitic Protestants give him scabies..

George: Rosicrucians?

Lenny: Rosacia!

George: Holy fuck, no wonder he bails out of the heavens on weekends..

Lenny: Yeah, it’s like why I bailed out of Brooklyn, ultra-orthodox  and little boy butt-fuckery .. all these guys looking like Bavarians in bowler hats with pig-tails in the wrong places, I mean c’mon, wherever you see anything like that, you know something is perverted..

George: Well, I was going to ask him a question, maybe you can help me out. What is up with this ‘Jews for Jesus’ thing?

Lenny: You mean Jews for Jewdas? I mean, here are right wing evangelical Jews praying like Pentecostals for the Jews to be destroyed so they can rebuild the Jewish temple in Jerusalem, call it Christian and get Jesus back .. where’s the sense in that?

George: Well, I was wondering about the ‘makes sense’ part .. I mean, here are Jews trying to covert people into right-wing Christians, and it was right wing Christians had stamped out six million Jews already .. I’d run across this blog “These Jews need Jesus” .. there’s a joke in there somewhere, right?

Lenny: Oh yeah, imagine sending a bunch of pedophile Hasidics to a Puritan chapter of Heaven where no kids are allowed, there’d be a serious riot. As if the corrupt closet-fascist Evangelicals wanted to be outed as well, the schumks!

George: Actually, that’s a GREAT idea.. uh.. Lenny, how many times were you arrested?

An info-satire by Ronald

snook |sno͝ok|
noun (also known as ‘thumb your nose’) informal
• place one’s hand so that the thumb touches one’s nose and the fingers are spread out, in order to express contempt: The LA Times reporter didn’t dare to write Ron West was quick to thumb his nose when the CIA was actually looking.
• openly show contempt or a lack of respect for someone or something; to thumb one’s nose: the very same coward spent a journalism career at the LA Times thumbing his nose at a dumbed-down public.

“Seven non-members of the non-deep state are so enraged by the idea that people might think the totally fake American deep state might be real, that they accidentally publish seemingly coordinated attacks on the very idea. Under very similar titles. All within the same few days. Citing the same “counter examples” of Egypt and Turkey. All acting with symmetrical umbrage” -Off Guardian

Ok, so ‘Kit’ at Off Guardian summarized mainstream [intelligence agency implanted] media denial quite succinctly; in other words just because there are ‘deep state’ symptoms practically every direction one looks, if you happen to believe a rooster should appear, sound, and behave as a rooster, you are likely deluded.

From Steve Bannon to Glen Ford, with James Corbett somewhere in the middle, or in order of those listed, from a paranoid-fascist genius on the right to a no-nonsense social critic on the left, as well an astute neutral observer in the middle, when it comes to a ‘deep state’, all can agree when the same creature crows like a rooster, looks like a rooster and lives in a chicken house, it should be called a rooster, not a snook.

In other words, what should it tell you when The New Yorker, Salon, The LA Times, Politico Magazine, The Atlantic, RealClear Politics, and the Observer all insist a barking dog is actually saying meow? And if you do NOT agree, you’re a paranoid conspiracy theorist? Now, there’s a real snook. But that’s the business of media these days, deliberately thumbing their nose at reality and putting you down if you don’t agree.

First, what the American deep state is NOT:

It’s not Turkey, Egypt or Syria. These are red herrings tossed into print by the USA’s deep state press/mouthpieces.

red herring |ˈˌrɛd ˈhɛrɪŋ|
noun
1 something, especially a clue, that is or is intended to be misleading or distracting: the CIA recruited academic had produced a deep state debunking article for Counter Punch with red herrings Turkey, Syria & Egypt. So named from the practice of using the scent of red herring in training dogs (not cats.)

What the American deep state IS: a spineless sociopath, multiple-personalities, artificial entity with synthetic soul; which sometimes attacks itself. It has a faux conscious manifest in the National Prayer Breakfast. Its exoskeleton is the facade of democracy. Its muscle mass is the federal bureaucracy. Its ruptured spleen is the Council on Foreign Relations. Its jaundiced liver is NATO. Its irritable bowel syndrome is the USA’s military industrial corporate boards. Its severely diseased heart is Exxon-Mobil. Its anus is Capitol Hill. It’s [soon to be] broken life support machine is Wall Street. In its’ current, more or less schizophrenic mental state, it is the generals versus the spooks; the left brain-dead NSA versus the right brain-dead CIA, also known as (in Trumps head) Snowden is bad, WikiLeaks is good. Its synthetic soul is ‘The Fellowship’ (and its satellite, the Federalist Society.)

snooker |ˈsno͝okər|
noun
• trick, entice, or trap: the public was snookered into buying F-35s at prices that were too high.
• leave (someone) in a difficult position; thwart: The CIA managed to lose its family jewels—the NSA left Gina Haspel snookered.

In short, the CIA’s ‘dirty tricks’ (Special Activities) division had been a rogue player in the orbit of the Prescott Bush family and corporate associates since the days of Allan Dulles. In the seamless transition from ‘dubya’ to Hussein Obama, it was Robert Gates & David Petraeus had welded this branch of the CIA to the Pentagon and brought it under the Pentagon umbrella via the SOC (special operations command) where it could be safely preserved in upcoming euthanasia of those neo-liberal controlled divisions of the CIA at odds with the generals. In other words, bye-bye to the influence of the Council on Foreign Relations, and other, similar, entities because the tacit understanding of bygone days or ‘the balance of tolerance’ (tolerating players you despise, Hussein Obama, Hillary, Soros & associated ‘usual suspects’) are indeed over.  The Coe cult has made its move via the generals and the rest, as they say, will be history. Where is ‘the donald’ in this play? He’s allowed himself to become a pawn played to sacrifice in a gambit; that is a stooge and a fool. This had been accomplished via his administration appointments, most notably preceded by his selection of the generals’ favorite Coe cult ‘fellowship‘ Bible-believer Pence:

MRFF_cartoon

literal Armageddon planning session

Think that’s far-fetched? Think again:

Pentagon-Bible - 1 (3)

“To see past and present Bible studies used in the Pentagon click here

In 2017 what is the Bible study at the Pentagon? That would be the Old Testament’s Jonah. Here follows is reasonable expectation of the lessons our generals take to heart when embracing a 3,000 years old fairy tale (there’s a reason this article begins with a ‘Loony Tunes’ clip)

Jonah:

Jonah was minding his own business.
Nineveh, God said
Speak to Nineveh.

Jonah said:
Screw that,
Those people won’t listen.

And God said:
You don’t get it, Jonah
So try this:

Burped a Whale
The upchucked Jonah
Wanted a bath, badly.

And Nineveh
Did not repent
As much as

Not knowing
Their left hand from right,
In the end

God felt sorry for their cows.

Or, in our generals/Mike Pence spiritual guru Doug Coe’s other study:

^ “I’ve seen pictures of the young men in the Red Guard… They would bring in this young man’s mother. He would take an axe and cut her head off. They have to put the purposes of the Red Guard ahead of their father, mother, brother, sister, and their own life. That was a covenant. A pledge. That’s what Jesus said” -Doug Coe

So, as different factions of the deep state slug it out, Doug Coe will finally eschew Hillary’s blow-jobs (Hillary had always been too busy elsewhere to give Bill what he wanted) and go with the generals, as the Bible studying Pentagon’s NSA (smiling like a hillbilly) slips the Vault 7 greased-pig-job to the CIA:

Meanwhile, over at AIPAC, everything is on track with the Zionists (Christian & Jewish) as the messianic agenda progresses… the problem with ordinary people is, they have no idea of the theological madness behind the perfectly serious(ly insane) Christian crusaders at the Pentagon:

The paranoid Jewish Zionists embrace these rabid anti-Semitic Christian Zionists who fully intend the Jewish Zionists will become extinct once they’ve finished the dirty work of retaking the West Bank for the Christian Zionists necrotic vision on a road to Armageddon, meanwhile the Jewish Zionists label any non-Jewish anti-Zionist as anti-Semitic, when in fact most of the non-Jewish anti-Zionists are the bitter foes of the rabid anti-Semitic Christian Zionists momentarily embraced by the Jewish Zionists.

Now, in the mix of all of this, the anti-Zionist Jewish personalities are in an impossible state of being forced to play a game of ‘shut the fuck up’ or get blasted by all Zionists, Jewish and Christian, while the non-Jewish anti-Zionist is attacked by the paranoid Ashkenazi, who became paranoid and Zionist, on account of the pogroms of anti-Semitic Christian Zionists. These people bite the hand of people who’re actually doing them a favor by taking on the rabidly anti-Semitic Christian Zionists, personalities  who intend as soon as the partnership of convenience is over, all those clinging to Judaism will be tossed into a lake of what will almost certainly amount to man-made nuclear fire…

Meanwhile, if you’re too smart to be obsessed with the Russians are to blame for everything gone wrong on this flat earth, in the midst of our deep state’s internecine war, every deep state publishing party wants you to believe the deep state existence is a fantasy, here’s a few samples:

As we see Washington DC tearing itself apart, I expect there are presently about four ‘deep state’ factions vying for control, inclusive of a Brzezinski aligned rogue CIA cell, set up prior to Obama’s exit, to undermine a Kissinger aligned faction of ’national security professionals’ backing Trump. Both factions are truly nasty players and then you have the apocalyptic Doug Coe led Christian cult, and the USA’s messianic Israeli aligned neocon Jewish clique they sleep with, or AIPAC Zionists (Christian & Jewish) embedded in all of this, where there is not only nastiness but irrationality.

All of these elements have managed to secure positions in the Trump administration.

Trump had to toss a political sop to the religious right led by the deep state Coe cult represented in V.P. Pence, as well (the waiting to be confirmed) Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, who was almost immediately sidelined by Trump with his National Security Council changes. Trump should hope Sessions confirmation will  fail but Pence is in the loop to stay.

The Coe cult’s Jewish Zionist partners at AIPAC are solidly in via Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner. These are two groups that cynically use each other, the messianic (waiting to be saved from themselves) Jewish Zionists require the far more numerous Christian Zionists to advance their ‘Greater Israel’ agenda and the fundamentalist Christian Zionists depending on the Jewish Zionists realizing a ‘Greater Israel’ to fulfill apocalyptic bible prophecy. Yeah, amazingly, that shit plays at the top levers of power.

Then we have the Brzezinski versus Kissinger visions of global dominance, which differ more in style than substance. Rabid Russophobe Brzezinski, with his more direct & confrontational style, had the upper hand for these past eight years of the neo-liberal Obama rule and now the snake charmer & hypnotist Kissinger’s people are trying to hijack the the Trump national security agenda. This brings us to ‘the cell.’

The Cell

brennan1-1

“Brennan had a 25-year career as a spy overseas and a top analyst and executive at home” -from ‘A Man in Full – exclusive interview with CIA Director John Brennan’ by Irish Central News

It’s nice when the spooks let their guard down, maybe Brennan had too much good Irish beer? By comparison, the CIA website’s Brennan mini-bio is evasive. But now we can know Brennan is a veteran of the CIA’s clandestine services, not merely an analyst and ladder climbing bureaucrat with a stint as chief of station in Saudi Arabia. This is an important distinction.

Obama is our second president with closely interlinked CIA ties in his history (a second, longer and more thorough investigative result HERE), the first being George H.W. Bush. But Obama is the first to altogether attempt concealment of those ties. Nowhere in his biography does Obama admit his mother was a clandestine services officer or that Obama himself had been employed by CIA business fronts as a young man. Meanwhile, mainstream media not only shields Obama from his CIA association but does the CIA’s bidding and has for a very long time:

“In 1953, Joseph Alsop, then one of America’s leading syndicated columnists, went to the Philippines to cover an election. He did not go because he was asked to do so by his syndicate. He did not go because he was asked to do so by the newspapers that printed his column. He went at the request of the CIA” -first paragraph of Carl Bernstein’s ‘CIA and the Media’

CIA information operations opposing Trump continue as though John Brennan had never left and Mike Pompeo had never arrived. This ‘deep state’ phenomenon has been acknowledged by spooks to academia:

“He decided to explore the similarities in a 30-page paper that he sent around to a number of his friends, asking them to validate or refute his argument. As it happens, Glennon’s friends were an extraordinarily well-informed bunch, mostly seasoned operatives in the CIA, the U.S. State Department and the military. “Look,” he told them. “I’m thinking of writing a book. Tell me if this is wrong.” Every single one responded, “What you have here is exactly right”

The difference between Trump-Pompeo and Obama-Brennan? Obama-Brennan both have histories that tie deeply into the CIA clandestine services, they are ‘insiders’, whereas Trump and Pompeo are not. The National Clandestine Service (formerly the Directorate of Operations) is a small, comparatively speaking, highly cellularized organization with absolute ability to perform autonomously; the only checks on such compartments are, in many cases, trust in the personnel assigned. As a historically George H.W. Bush fan club, in many cases stacked with anti-Castro Cuban exiles, making a case for one or more of our National Clandestine Service cells ‘going off the reservation’ to serve personal loyalties, is not a stretch of the imagination. Moreover, it is not far-fetched at all, to propose ‘independent’ cells formed by National Clandestine Service employees and/or veterans, operating without the nebulous agency oversight in relation to covert actions and false flag information operations. The “Russians hacked the elections” CIA information operation and the “fake news” psychological operation, though experiencing serious miss-steps, haven’t slowed down. Again, it’s as though Brennan had never left, and Pompeo had never arrived, at Langley, Virginia.

Since the days of Allen Dulles directorship at CIA, the agency’s National Clandestine Service has been closely intertwined with American corporations pursuit of ‘America’s vital interests’ which is euphemism for taking the natural resources wealth of other nations at the point of a gun with bayonet. From the crude oil grab of the 1953 CIA overthrow of Iran’s democratically elected prime minister Mohammad Mosaddeq, to the present attempted ‘regime change’ in Syria over a gas pipeline, this CIA legacy closely intertwines with the Allen Dulles CIA’s Bush family & family ‘friends’ (corporate interests) for many decades (2nd article HERE)

“Early in 1933, both Dulles brothers [Allen & John Foster] attended a meeting in Germany where German industrialists agreed to back Hitler’s bid for power in exchange for his pledge to break the German unions. A few months later, John Foster Dulles negotiated a deal with Hitler’s economics minister whereby all German trade with the United States would be coordinated through a syndicate headed by Averell Harriman’s cousin. With the Nazis enforcing a favorable climate for business, the profits for Thyssen and other companies soared, and the Union Banking Corporation increasingly became a Nazi money-laundering machine. In 1934, George Herbert Walker placed [son-in-law] Prescott Bush [father of George Herbert Walker Bush, father of George W. Bush] on Union Bank’s board of directors, and Bush and Harriman also began to use the bank as the basis for a complex and deceptive system of holding companies”

The transition from the younger George Bush to Obama had been seamless, with Robert Gates, the former CIA director for a former CIA director turned president (Bush Sr) staying on as Secretary of Defense from Bush Jr to Obama. The brilliance of the Obama ‘hope & change’ psychological operation in fact enabled Obama to push the Bush family’s CIA aligned agenda forward without missing a beat. Gates is so close to George H.W. Bush, he could be considered a brother of George W. Bush. Another dead giveaway it was to be Bush CIA aligned business as usual on Obama’s watch was Obama’s first National Security Advisor, General James Jones, is a close Chevron associate of Condoleezza Rice.

Trump’s ‘election by accident’ (probably no one was surprised by his victory so much as Trump) appears to have thrown a monkey wrench into the gears of what Tufts University Professor Glennon has labeled a ‘shadow government.’ The long out of favor Kissinger fans in the national security apparatus long shot bet on Trump (they had no other candidate) paid off and we see a power struggle playing out with the largely Bush aligned CIA National Clandestine Service, the location or origin of what is likely an Obama-Brennan legacy or ‘the cell’ set out to undermine and wreck Trump’s chances at anything and everything; in addition to what’s more actually tearing this all apart from within: a tale of two visions – Brzezinski versus Kissinger – with CIA largely opposed to Trump but, courtesy of Trump son-in-law Kushner and Israeli operatives/allies at AIPAC, Netanyahu’s MOSSAD should be firmly on Trump’s side. The Israeli intelligence agency is a by far greater threat to our republic than the Russians. Finally, the Christian apocalyptic Coe cult is one step away from the Presidency with Vice President Pence’s elevation, likely giving at least some of the spooks at the National Clandestine Service second thoughts about knocking Trump off. But, you can’t even count on that, because, the foremost expert on the religious freaks aspect of this, Jeff Sharlet, in a 2003 interview, had stated concerning the Coe cult:

“A lot of their key men in a country would be the intelligence [CIA] officers in the American embassy. Throughout their correspondence, that’s the kind of guy they would like to have involved

How this plays out is anyone’s guess. Previous to this we had something like a consensus autocracy by concealed committee of separate but cooperating factions (since JFK), is my impression. But they got too greedy for the resources of empire and the whole thing is tearing itself apart as the White blue collar American middle class had been bled to death and the anger mounted, electing Trump. What Trump will do almost certainly won’t be very smart but I actually somewhat (my evil side) enjoy watching the long vested criminal interests sincerely freaking out.

If this all seems impossible for Trump (not to mention the rest of us) to escape without serious harm, I would agree, except for the remote possibility of escape by luck approaching a miracle .. such as the time when walking through tall grass in Vietnam I had stepped on a large brown monocled cobra; where the snake chose to go down a hole at hand rather than bite me.

In any democracy, ethics, self restraint, tolerance and honesty will always take a second seat to narcissism, avarice, bigotry & persecution, if only because people who play by the rules in any democracy are at a disadvantage to those who easily subvert the rules to their own advantage (Ronald’s Maxim)

On Trump’s bankruptcy lawyer and pick for ambassador to Israel. Friedman could be described as so ultra-right, he’s far to the right of Netanyahu:

“There has never been a “two-state solution” – only a “two-state narrative.” The former never existed because a “solution” to the Israel-Palestinian dispute would have required, as a threshold matter, that Palestinians accept Israel as a Jewish state, renounce terrorism, discontinue anti-Israel incitement in their schools and abandon their desire to flood Israel with so-called “refugees” from other countries who never spent a day of their lives in Israel”David Friedman

Like most people, to a greater or lesser degree, Friedman sees his world through a self-serving prism.  The first sentence of his short paragraph is refreshingly straightforward. The remainder of the paragraph is notable for its stunning hypocrisy. Let’s examine the first sentence, first, and then have at the rest of the story.

The ‘two-state’ narrative has always been a lie. It’s not only a case of ‘actions speak louder than words’, but the driving idea of a ‘Greater Israel’ is behind the Israeli intransigence in negotiations (or better said, avoidance of negotiations) towards a so-called ‘two-state’ solution (which under Israeli diktat is no solution at all.) It is combined social and cultural psychology demands (or drives) the Jewish state towards a ‘Greater Israel.’ This demand is embedded in the mythology of history where ‘Samaria’ and ‘Judea’ are, at one time or another in ancient past linked, aligned with, or integrated to the historical Kingdom of Israel, having little to do with the fact of modern Israel.

According to the Oxford:

Samaria |səˈme(ə)rēə|
1 an ancient city in central Palestine, founded in the 9th century bc as the capital of the northern Hebrew kingdom of Israel. The ancient site is situated in the modern West Bank, northwest of Nablus.
2 the region of ancient Palestine around Samaria, between Galilee in the north and Judaea in the south.

Judaea |jo͝oˈdēə, -ˈdāə|
the southern part of ancient Palestine that corresponds to the former kingdom of Judah.

This next pretty much nails it:

roman_judea-jpg-1

“The term Judea as a geographical term was revived by the Israeli government in the 20th century as part of the Israeli administrative district name Judea and Samaria Area for the territory generally referred to as the West Bank”

A state does not give the names of one’s historical mythology to an area except that state intends to assert sovereignty over the same. Prior to this, Judea had last been the name of the area under Hadrian’s rule, changed shortly after the era of Agrippa II, the last Roman approved ‘Herodian’, or ‘titular’ king of the Jews, who were NOT a sovereign people.

The so-called ‘two-state’ solution was, and always had been, a geopolitical lie. The purpose of that lie has been, and always had been, to satisfy political correctness relating to international law. The USA and it’s Christian Zionist cohorts never dared to support the annexation of the West Bank as a matter of stated policy, because to do so would be to openly support a rogue state in its transgressions (if a rogue state is to be defined as a state in persistent violation of international law.) This is the purpose the ‘two-state’ geopolitical lie has served, as a cover story that buys time towards implementing the inevitable ‘Greater Israel.’

Inevitable? The USA supported Friedman’s Israel is a nuclear armed state aggressively colonizing the West Bank (with Friedman’s staunch support.) There will be a Greater Israel or there will be mushroom clouds, or perhaps both. People who embrace myths of history are not particularly rational people and Israel is not a particularly rational state:

“For refugees, camps were shelters for the reconstruction of personal and social life, but were also seen as sites of great political significance, the material testimony of what was destroyed and ‘all that remains’ of more than four hundred cities, towns and villages forcefully cleansed throughout Palestine in the Nakba of 1947-9. This is the reason refugees sometimes refer to the destruction of camps as ‘the destruction of destruction.’ The camp is not a home, it is a temporary arrangement, and its destruction is but the last iteration in an ongoing process of destruction.

“This rhetoric of double negation – the negation of negation – tallies well with what Saree Makdisi, talking about the Israeli refusal to acknowledge the Nakba, has termed ‘the denial of denial’, which is, he says, ‘a form of foreclosure that produces the inability – the absolutely honest, sincere incapacity – to acknowledge that denial and erasure have themselves been erased in turn and purged from consciousness.’ What has been denied is continuously repeated: Israel keeps on inflicting destruction on refugees and keeps on denying that a wrong has been done” –Eyal Weizman: ‘The Least Of All Possible Evils’ (Humanitarian Violence From Arendt To Gaza)

Which brings us to the rank hypocrisy of the rest of Friedman’s small paragraph. If there were Jews who were enslaved or fled Roman rule, there were many, many more who stayed in what was no longer ‘Judea’ but what became Roman ruled Palaestina, renamed by the Roman Emperor Hadrian. Where are those ancient Jewish people’s descendants today? They’re in Palestine and they’re called Palestinians. The inconvenience for the modern Ashkenazi is, most of these indigenous people had, with passing time, converted to Islam.

Imagine your rural family’s city dwelling uncle Mordecai’s entire neighborhood (Jerusalem) had been convicted of treason by the Roman state and their daughters were consequently enslaved and removed to Italy and surrounding area. Now, some 1,800 or so years later, Mordecai’s and his neighbors’ descendants show up and demand you give them your farm as their rightful inheritance because you are no longer Jewish. That’s what historical myths do to people.

This goes to the most crass aspect of Friedman’s hypocrisy when he had stated in relation to the Palestinians demand of a right to return:

“…their desire to flood Israel with so-called “refugees” from other countries who never spent a day of their lives in Israel”

So tell me, David Friedman (this is a rhetorical question), exactly what do your words describe better than Uncle Mordecai’s (put any European nationality here) neighborhood’s progeny descending on Palestine?

There is, after all, an experience shaping the Palestinian point of view.
