orangutongue |əˈraNG(g)əˌtəNG| (also orangutang, orang-utan)
noun
a vain, billionaire ape with reddish-orange hair in thinned pompadour style with small hands allergic to touch, native to a game of real estate set in Sumatra. The mature male develops a flashy, smiling grimace that is grotesque to behold. Typically attended by a superstitious consort with a European backwater small-village mentality.
[Bonkers pygmaeus, family Honkymentalitye.]

I thought about titling this one the ‘head-scratching no-brainer’ but ‘just another geopolitical head louse’ is more apropos when it comes to Central Intelligence Agency practicing damage control. So, our orange haired President Twit, who would appear to have the political acumen of a Sumatran orangutan inexplicably inserted into American politics, appoints a man who could easily dedicate his time to cutting his boss’ throat with the ‘Russian collusion’ fantasy. If that’s what the CIA wants, it appears that’s what we’ll get.

Ivy League chicken-hawk William Barr spent the first four years of his professional life in the employ of the CIA at the intelligence directorate and CIA’s ‘Office of Legislative Counsel’ where he was the personal acquaintance of then CIA Director George H.W. Bush. Brought into the Bush Sr administration as a legal strategist during the Iran-Contra coverup, he is responsible for the pardons of several treasonous felons, no doubt necessary to avoid any of them squealing on their boss, George Herbert Walker Bush, and his then CIA director Robert Gates, whose criminal collusion in the Iran-Contra affair is traceable to that sordid business’ immediate predecessor and inspiration; the so-called ‘October Surprise of 1980.’ This was when the Ayatollahs were Bush and Gates’ business partners in turning Jimmy Carter out of office (the ayatollahs were paid millions to keep the American embassy hostages until after the 1980 elections, preventing a Carter boost in popularity.) That’s what morphed into a blackmail relationship with the ayatollahs that eventually became Iran-Contra, a CIA-MOSSAD clandestine joint venture arming the ayatollahs to the teeth when the CIA and MOSSAD were arming both sides of the Iraq-Iran war so they might better tear themselves to pieces.

It is also noteworthy William Barr had been Deputy Attorney General and Robert Mueller’s direct supervisor when Mueller had been overseeing the USA end of the Lockerbie investigation, infamous for the fact the CIA had planted the evidence DoJ ‘expert’ (fraud) Thomas Thurman had attested to as authentic in the frame-up of Libya for that mass murder. Don’t let Lady Liberty’s wholesome look fool you, the republic’s scalp is itching, and in this context it makes perfect (criminal) sense it was William Barr, when Attorney General under Bush Sr, ordered the reassignment of 300 FBI counter-intelligence agents to other duties rather than risk the DoJ’s own intelligence service stumbling across the rank criminality of his organization’s relationship to CIA.

Going to this immediate preceding, in what amounts to a CIA-FBI cycle of ‘lice make nits and nits make lice’, most certainly William Barr will not prosecute a CIA officer doubling as narcotics cartel serial killer, Enrique Prado, a man Robert Mueller let run free to go on killing for a decade following a proverbial ‘mountain of evidence’ provided by Mueller’s own FBI (as well, state authorities), evidence which had been subsequently quashed by leadership at the top.

Then, this louse only itches the republic’s scalp more. Barr was part and parcel of Robert Mueller’s sinking of the BCCI investigation (with its multiple CIA accounts for money laundering related to narcotics and arms trafficking) where according to a former Manhattan prosecutor, John Moscow, whose efforts had been sabotaged by then DoJ criminal division lawyer Robert Mueller: “Of course, the biggest guys got away”

Who are the ‘biggest guys’ slated for escape in today’s monkey business at the Department of Justice? Other than Robert Mueller, William Barr’s fellow CIA liaised bosom buddy, it’s likely not the DoJ dummies who jumped on the Steele Dossier like shit-eating dogs, they’ll possibly be ‘put down’ (made to fall on their swords.) The CIA’s vested interest in salvaging ‘the Russians did it’ players that matter will be to deter any investigation into the false intelligence laundering service provided by ‘CrowdStrike’ (DNC mail servers never forensically examined by the FBI a.k.a. the ‘Russian hack’ story that doesn’t hold up), and engineer damage control around ‘the Steele dossier’ while pulling CIA asset Nellie Ohr’s chestnuts out of the fire (Fusion GPS), all clumsy mischief initiated by the CIA’s John Brennan-Hillary axis.

Now, if this all sounds a bit schizophrenic, it’s probably because the CIA is cellular to the point of multiple personalities; and it’s necessary  to understand the agency isn’t monolithic. If Obama’s then CIA director Brennan is a Hillary aligned neoliberal puke, present director Gina Haspel is a neocon-Christian Zionist aligned vomit puddle whose torture resume reads like a lesbian Torquemada in heat; from Gitmo black site to Bangkok black site (to Diego Garcia’s ‘deep’ black site?), no doubt with an intense infatuation for Alfreda Bikowsky and water-board induced confession of (actually non-existent) black al-Qaida cells in Montana where blacks are practically impossible to find. In short, other than tongues stuck out at one another when passing in the halls at Langley, Virginia, the opposed political natures of ‘the company’ employees take a second seat to covering up the agency’s dirty laundry. This is about clearing agency aligned folk of any danger where the CIA’s rodent-like fingers, with prints all over world-wide crimes sprees, might be caught in incompetent (inadvertently self-manifest) geopolitical-USA-politics rat trap. These are stupid, f’d up people.

Now, compare the preceding to a snippet of the ‘official’ story:

When asked about the Special Counsel investigation headed up by his “best friend” Robert Mueller, Barr said “I don’t believe Mr. Mueller would be involved in a witch hunt,” and that “On my watch, Bob will be allowed to finish his work.”  

Barr also said that the Trump administration would not be allowed to “correct” the Mueller report before a public release, stating “That will not happen.” 

Last week Sen. Lindsey Graham (SC) met with Barr, and said that the AG nominee has a “high opinion” of Mueller, and that Barr told him that he and Mueller worked together when Barr was Bush’s attorney general between 1991 and 1993 when Mueller oversaw the DOJ’s criminal division. Graham added that the two men were “best friends” who have known each other for 20 years, and that their wives have attended Bible study together. 

Mueller also attended the weddings of two of Barr’s daughters.

Graham listed a series of questions he put to Barr: “I asked Mr. Barr directly, ‘Do you think Mr. Mueller is on a witch hunt?’ He said no. ‘Do you think he would be fair to the president and the country as a whole?’ He said yes. ‘And do you see any reason for Mr. Mueller’s investigation to be stopped?’ He said no. ‘Do you see any reason for a termination based on cause?’ He said no. ‘Are you committed to making sure Mr. Mueller can finish his job?’ Yes.”

When William Barr had penned a memo stating Robert Mueller had overstepped his authority as Special Counsel in ‘the Russians did it’ false-flag intelligence agency propaganda ruse, Trump took the bait and appointed Barr for the position of Attorney General. But clearly, the ‘witch-hunt’ isn’t going to end. Now, the outstanding questions revolve around how this plays out. Barr will bring the investigation back into a Russophobia focus and away from straying into Trump’s mafia business ties no doubt attested to by Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen, who would know where the skeletons are.

This points to possibility there will be a ‘deal made’ where the investigation drops Trump’s corrupt business past and Trump agrees to pardon parties on both sides of the caper (read Brennan); to secure the vote he needs to avoid conviction in the Senate, because from this vantage point it would appear impeachment is going forward. Then, Senator Graham’s Evangelical clique stabs the orange-haired orangutongue in the back and elevates the ‘Never Trump’ Republican guard clique’s choice to be President, that is Mike Pence. Trump has the dirt he needs to avoid resigning but he doesn’t know how to use it when up against an intelligence agency ‘playing for keeps.’ By this time it would be too late, because he’s no longer president from moment of conviction by the Senate and it is a game of ‘he-said-she-said’ with Trump no longer possessed of the authority to declassify the incriminating documents that should send Mueller and team to jail.

For those who are bilingually challenged, Pig Latin’s ‘ufusday ersonpay’ translates ‘dufus person’, a circumstantial but apropos sobriquet for Trump, who is playing out of his league. Yeah, they actually do come dumber than the ‘folk’ at Langley, where crass intrigue to incompetent implosion is the clandestine operational outcome as often as not.

To start, my message of what’s happening that’s important in its bearing on the new year, the USA animus towards Russia and all of its implications, we begin in a historical context with this screenshot naming the author of a patent lie:

Mueller_Lockerbie - 1

Insofar as 2018 stories, of the several geopolitical events of considerable importance, in my estimation it is the deep state’s Robert Mueller role-as-mole or charade as ‘special counsel’ should draw the necessary attention to underline the so-called ‘Trumanite’ network embedded in the USA’s security structures. Of the MANY exposures (in the public domain) of this man as a fraud devoted to what amounts to an anti-constitutional order that has stepped itself up and above the rule of law, there are three that stand out to degree to disqualify him as anything other than corrupt; 1) in his role as deputy attorney general during the Bush 41 administration, Robert Mueller headed up the USA end of the Lockerbie investigation that was later exposed by a Chief of Scots police as a frame-up of Libya due to false evidence and testimony provided by the USA, 2) it was Robert Mueller had been exposed by a United States Senate investigation (that was never acted on) showing the United States Department of Justice sandbagged the criminal case against Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) and subsequently 3) it was Robert Mueller’s FBI for a decade refused to arrest a serial killer, Enrique Prado, despite more than ample evidence (a proverbial ‘mountain’ of evidence) provided to the Department of Justice by both state and federal law enforcement.

The common thread in these events? It is the Central Intelligence Agency. The USA end of the Lockerbie investigation was tied to false physical evidence planted by the CIA and the FBI provided the ‘expert’ testimony of Thomas Thurman (exposed as a fraud) upholding the same under Robert Mueller’s watch, BCCI was all about the CIA’s Iran-Contra international arms and narcotics money laundering investigation Mueller worked to contain (damage control) and Enrique Prado is not only a serial killer responsible for multiple drug cartel related murders that Mueller’s FBI failed to act on, but also happens to double as a high ranking CIA official who moved on to Blackwater where the CIA’s own contract killings became outsourced (Prado remains free & has never been prosecuted.) Of the many instance of Robert Mueller’s dirty work for CIA, these three cases are remarkable for the fact they are reasonably indisputable. [1], [2], [3]

It follows, when Robert Mueller is assigned to support ‘the Russians did it’ forgone conclusion at the trial by Western media, it demands investigation of Mueller’s endeavors and it cannot come as a surprise there are numerous, major holes in ‘the Russians did it’ story replete with CIA fingerprints (Bruce & Nellie Ohr, Fusion GPS and Crowdstrike.) It follows, these are the 2018 ronaldthomaswest.com stories that bear on what will follow in the new year:

https://ronaldthomaswest.com/2018/12/20/usa-really-robert-mueller/

These preceding stories concern a social poison that could morph into WWIII when you think about in certain terms; The USA’s deep state/intelligence agencies framing Russia as a criminal with (excuse me) ‘trumped up’ charges is not like falsely accusing your local rival mobster. The difference is tremendous and what is frightening is, the small mentalities who believe they can produce a stool pigeon, e.g. Christopher Steele, to give false testimony and expect the result will be a conviction, are creating a very big problem for all of us, because you cannot simply lock Russia up … and the falsely convicted are not prone to be especially friendly towards their prosecutors. When the Russians see opportunity to rectify this injustice, because the perpetrators almost certainly will never admit their fraud, likely result will not be pretty. You and I dear reader, could pay for that. In a more radical scenario, with continuing pressure and tensions piled on, everyone could pay. Sans bullshit happy greetings, welcome to 2019.

Moving on, 2018 is remarkable for the fact I’d finally jelled my personal philosophy into print in the English language. This was exceptionally difficult because the pre-Western civilization that has shaped my views is not conducive to translation to Western thought and language per se. In fact I’m prepared to state almost all past anthropological endeavors in this regard are hopelessly flawed, especially those stemming from so-called ‘native studies’ programs (and their academic progeny) for the fact color of skin creates a pseudo or deceptive perception of validity. ‘Native studies’ is a politically correct euphemism for Western anthropology dressed up in red skins in a society which seems hopelessly trapped into lying to itself. Here is my attempted work-around:

My modest blog’s projected performance for 2018: 116 hits daily (on average for a bit under 3,500 per month.) This is up from 2017, but 2014 had been a stronger year, due to Ron Unz linking his assessment of the MH17 false-flag Malaysian airliner shoot-down over Novorossiya (the Donbass area of Ukraine) to my assessment of that same event.

Started in mid-2012, following Alternet discontinuing (and eventually deleting) my ‘soapbox’ blog, ronaldthomaswest.com began to get a bit of traction in 2013, with 2014 the blog’s strongest year, pulling in 45,000 hits. 2015 had about 40,000 (a lingering effect of Ron Unz linking to the MH17 piece), 2016 was at 26,000, 2017 bumped up to 36,500 views and 2018 is up to just over 42,000 reads. Over the lifespan of this blog, we are nearing 200,000 hits.

Alfreda Bikowsky and the Definition of Stupid, lampooning CIA renditions to torture with real statistics, is the most steadily read article over time (since it had been published in December 2014), and has consistently gained on the MH17 assessment and is this site’s most popular and enduring satire. As things stand, it is on track to become this sites all time most read piece in 2019.

The following ‘top ten’ are not all published in 2018 but were the most read for the year. The numbers are probably a bit higher than reflected in these stats as of 26 December; as there are approximately 3,000 reads for 2018 in the category ‘homepage/archives’ some of which probably are hits of articles in the following list. Amazingly, works in relation to my Native American experiences are the top two.

Finally, I continue to hold that sheer numbers are not necessarily the best marker for a blogs importance, who reads can be as important or more important. In regards to this, greetings to the spooks, some of you I admire and know, others I despise but nevertheless know you read here (and know who some of you are.)

USA Really, a Russian website, had been a brilliant idea, actually, with a mission statement to open up to American writers reporting on what the USA corporate media will not. However it became today, 20 December 2018, a casualty of Robert Mueller’s ‘the Russians did it’ political circus born out of John Brennan’s CIA on behalf of the neoliberal Hillary clique. Henceforth, any American contributors to USA Really will have put themselves within reach of prosecution and those writers perceived as a threat will be at risk.

I had long held out the Russians only need to stick to the unvarnished facts of the USA’s political (and other) corruption, without any unnecessary spin, to win the propaganda wars. This is not a matter of I’ve aligned myself with Russia, it’s a matter of observing the American press has become a criminal arm of Western multinational corporate greed and related world domination. Worthless, dated habits influencing policies based in lies propping up a geopolitical fantasy reality are the soup du jour spoon-fed to Americans; where mainstream reporting allows little room for the underlying actualities. And certainly there is no room for truly independent journalists. Everyone, whether Americans or Russians, deserve better.

I should go on to say American alternative media is little better. Because the USA is multi-fractured society, there is little place for anyone who resists alignment with the diverse ideological media platforms’ sponsors. Perhaps the closest is Unz Review but it hosts too many butt-hurt idiots and polarizing hate-mongers to really attract a core of readers who’d like the undiluted, unvarnished facts in common sense terms.

USA Really appears to have been pointed in this new direction of offering American ‘citizen reporters’ opportunity but is in the learning curve. Their mission statement is good but could use improvement. Yes, I would also welcome diverse writers but with a caveat; keep the ideology and related jargon out of the reporting and restricted to the authors biographies (require writers sticking to the facts in the common dialect.) Meanwhile, one could read human interest stories and some geopolitical work, the latter particularly of varying quality, some excellent writers, and some other, tired writers and subjects, too often rehashed in exhausted, ideological jargon. Understanding the American psyche at the meta level and related quality control in the submissions is not yet accomplished at USA Really. But it is a new experiment in Russian journalism, sponsoring exclusively American writers covering the USA solely, and the potential for a resounding success was there. I expect this had been the actual reason for ‘sanctioning’ USA Really and its editor in chief. It’s evil but the reality is, it’s not a fight I’m ready to take on; Robert Mueller’s ugliness representing the Trumanite anti-constitutional order, stemming from the National Security Act of 1947, has won this round with below the belt punches:

Dear USA Really

It is with regret I am informed that, today (having read the story at your site), The United States of America has placed your organization on its targeted by sanctions list. I believe this to be unwise, to contravene the USA’s own founding principles of law, referring to First Amendment in our Bill of Rights particularly, and an indication of weakness and fear on the part of those who would consider themselves to be leaders of my nation.

However I might fully grasp and understand I have a lawful right to associate with, and exercise free speech through, the media platform USA Really, I also understand the current political climate, and associated actors, would not respect this in what amounts to an undeclared state of war with Russia. As a pensioner, I simply am not positioned with the necessary resources to guarantee my rights in any possible actions the USA might see in its (mistaken) interests to harass myself with; whether administrative procedure or possible criminal charges if I were to make further contributions. Therefore please be informed I can no longer prepare work in docx format from my blog or otherwise initiate submitting stories for your readers. As your staff may be aware, my personal position is particularly delicate/precarious in relation to certain criminal elements associated with USA governance.

My work submitted to your publication prior to today should be protected by the USA ‘ex post facto’ prohibition. But, speaking to my entry for the “Global Democracy” award (John Reed category), I request any prize money won be donated to a Russian charity, and as a war veteran, I would suggest to the orphans of Russian casualties in Syria. I can no longer suggest a USA charity on account of the legal and/or public relations problems this might bring to otherwise deserving people in today’s irrational USA political climate.

With profound wishes for a better future relations with Russia, my sincerest greetings

Ron West

I am rerunning this piece for the fact of how it relates to so-called ‘special counsel’ Robert Mueller, a long time deep state operative. Like him or despise him, Trump is not the point. The point is our system is corrupted to the core, influenced by multiple, often times competing, criminal actors, and is unstable and dangerous.

Anyone wishing for a glimpse of irrefutable evidence the USA’s Department of Justice, and its satellite Federal Bureau of Investigation, have been corrupted/co-opted by the Central Intelligence Agency, need look no further than Robert Mueller’s failure to act, when FBI Director, on the case of Enrique Prado, a drug cartel serial killer whose concurrent career had been high-level official at CIA. It follows, appointing Mueller “Special Counsel” in a case where Western liberal democracies’ intelligence agencies are implicated (MI6/CIA, Fusion GPS, et al) is brilliantly cynical.

“This title is not currently available for purchase”

Evan-Wright-Amazon - 1

^ amazon screenshot

Why has Enrique Prado never been prosecuted? How is it three consecutive FBI Directors, Robert Mueller, James Comey & Christopher Wray, all of them, have let a proven serial killer continue to run free and go on killing? Corruption doesn’t go much deeper than this:

The CIA’s Amazon Books (or how to own a billionaire)

So, how is it a ‘kindle’ e-book detailing the history of a contemporary era CIA assassin is ‘out of print’ at amazon books? Can virtual reality actually have a paper supply problem? Or is it because Jeff Bezos’ amazon (Bezos is amazon’s largest stock-holder & CEO) has a $600,000,000 (six-hundred-million) contract supplying the CIA with ‘cloud’ services?

Small wonder Bezos’ Washington Post is recently the CIA’s preferred street-walker for planting fake news stories even as it had shrieked over ‘fake news.’ Now, going to the banned-at-amazon book:

‘How to Get Away with Murder in America: Drug Lords, Dirty Pols, Obsessed Cops, and the Quiet Man Who Became the CIA’s Master Killer’

Enrique_Prado - 1

^ Enrique Prado (he would be older now, perhaps 60+)

“This is a story that the CIA will not want you to read. It will likely shake your faith in the highest levels of America’s national security establishment. And it will leave you feeling as if you are living not in the United States but in a seedy banana republic where there is no line between the good guys and the bad guys.

“In “How to Get Away with Murder in America,” the celebrated journalist Evan Wright reveals the extraordinary story of Enrique “Ricky” Prado, an alleged killer for a major Miami drug trafficker who was recruited into the CIA. Despite a grand jury subpoena and a mountain of evidence unearthed by a federal task force, Prado was promoted into the agency’s highest echelons and charged with implementing some of the country’s most sensitive post-9/11 counterterrorist operations, including the agency’s secret “targeted assassination unit.” All while staying in close touch with his cocaine-trafficking boss and, evidence suggests, taking part in additional killings for him.

“After Prado retired in 2004 at the rank of SIS-2—the CIA equivalent of a two-star general—he moved to a senior position at Blackwater, the private military contractor, where he continued to run the same, now-outsourced “death squad.” Contrary to government assurances that it was never actually activated, Wright reveals explosive testimony from one of the Blackwater assassins that Prado’s unit was indeed carrying out assigned killings. As a former military intelligence officer told Wright in 2011, “Private contractors are whacking people like crazy over in Afghanistan for the CIA.”

“In “How to Get Away with Murder in America,” Wright discloses never-before-seen federal investigation files and lays out a mind-boggling and ultimately damning indictment of Ricky Prado and the intelligence community that embraced and empowered him. It is the deeply disturbing story of a criminal case abandoned because of CIA intervention, political maneuvering, and possibly corruption. Its cast includes Mafia capos, former U.S. Senator Bob Graham, former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno, Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, former CNN host Rick Sanchez, and Prado’s longtime boss at the CIA and then Blackwater, J. Cofer Black, who is now a “special adviser” to presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Wright also delivers a stunning portrait of Prado’s childhood friend Albert San Pedro, a.k.a. “the Maniac,” the drug lord whom he served for years as loyal bodyguard and enforcer, as well as their longtime nemesis Mike Fisten, the detective who began pursuing them more than two decades ago and still hopes to put them both in prison for murder.

“There are many conspiracies in Wright’s story, all of them unsettling. Did the CIA knowingly hire a suspected murderer with strong ties to drug traffickers? Or was the agency a stooge, infiltrated by an underworld hood described by one investigator as “technically, a serial killer”?

“How to Get Away with Murder in America” is likely to have serious repercussions for the U.S. national security establishment. And it will shake to the core your conceptions of government and justice in America”

Sure it could have “serious repercussions” if it were available. The book was offered for sale at amazon in 2012. Bezos picked up the 600 million ‘private cloud services’ contract with the CIA in 2013:

“Professor Robert McChesney, who has published books dealing with conflicts of interest in the media, for example, also blasted the links. “When the main shareholder in one of the very largest corporations in the world benefits from a massive contract with the CIA on the one hand, and that same billionaire owns the Washington Post on the other hand, there are serious problems””

No shit, Sherlock. And serious problems at amazon. After all, when the CIA comes calling, Bezos wouldn’t want things going wrong and a last sight of Enrique Prado’s silenced pistol presented in a follow-up visit:

“When best-selling author Evan Wright began digging into the hard-to-believe life story of Enrique “Ricky” Prado–a former Miami thug who became a top CIA official–he was told to stay away or risk getting “whacked.” One investigator warned, “You don’t want to f— with this guy.” Wright first learned about Prado while researching American Desperado, his shockingly good book about drug trafficker Jon Roberts. At first, he refused to believe that an alleged hitman and bodyguard for a mobster could become a CIA informant and eventually rise to the top echelons of the U.S. national security and intelligence systems. In this riveting account, Wright says the “two halves of Prado’s life…made no sense.” But through dozens of interviews and thousands of documents, Wright tries to make sense of them. The result is a story of two fiercely loyal Cuban-American childhood pals–Prado and his former cocaine-running boss, Albert “the Maniac” San Pedro–whose kinship lasted throughout Prado’s CIA career. Even as Prado rose to the CIA equivalent of a two-star general, he helped San Pedro with numerous deadly deeds. This is investigative journalism at its best—brave, meticulous, and significant” -Neal Thompson

David Wallechinsky (of ‘the peoples almanac’ fame) points out the anonymous ‘rat’ in the Trump administration is less than some ethical-high-standing-hero by noting:

“These inside “resistors” attempt to portray themselves as patriots who are trying to save America by being “adults in the room.” But the anonymous official and other insiders have an agenda that is not as patriotic as they make it out to be. Here is the key line in the [New York Times] article that makes clear their real agenda: “There are bright spots that the near-ceaseless negative coverage of the administration fails to capture: effective deregulation, historic tax reform, a more robust military and more.””

Wallechinsky concludes

“The anonymous Trump administration official appears to support Donald Trump’s general agenda of helping the richest Americans and ignoring everyone else. What worries the [anonymous NYT] writer is not that Trump is failing “to put country first,” but that he [Trump] is so emotionally disturbed that he will somehow screw up this corporatist agenda” at:

An assistant UN Secretary General appears to personally oversee and approve the violent eviction of a reporter,  Matthew Lee, covering corruption stories, from the UN’s New York Headquarters, The Independent covers his  story:

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/politics/matthew-lee-un-attacks-reporter-journalist-inner-city-press-a8445081.html

The preceding Matthew Lee should not be confused with the AP’s Matt Lee whose classic grilling of the Department of State’s John Kirby from four years ago is still worth a watch; where he makes the case ‘NATO expansion has placed NATO on Russia’s doorstep and you’re blaming Russia for having military on NATO’s border’ and the Department of State severe case of mental retardation is on full display:

Little has changed since Russia [did not] move it’s borders to NATO’s doorstep, former NATO [Canadian] intelligence officer Patrick Armstrong makes the case for not only NATO’s mental issue with ‘confirmation bias’ but in process notes:

“…this reversal of truth is now the propagandistic norm: New photos show Russia’s building up its military on NATO’s doorstep, but the alliance says it won’t be intimidated” and “Russia Building Up Military on NATO’s Borders” in October 2018 (just before a large NATO exercise that actually is on Russia’s border)” at:

Back to the UN (obliquely) where a 3rd Matthew is not a good guy but a Soros university board member did not disclose his position even as the UN sponsored his negotiations in Macedonia where the USA ambassador is routinely referred to as ‘prime minister’ Jess Bailey:

Macedonia appears to be the main location from which the CIA is geopolitically engineering the Western Balkans, this article from last year is worth a review…

“At the moment, the US and the US Deep State and its vassals the Brits and Germans have given the green light to turn Skopje into a HQ for the upcoming work to destabilize Serbia. The Macedonian Government is currently footing the bill and hosting all of Vucic’s enemies, including the leaders of various mafia clans”

So, all of the preceding BS will slip unnoticed by most of the people who are least effected even as Angela Merkel comes out with ‘surrender your sovereign rights’ to Brussels’…

Have you seen the little piggies
Crawling in the dirt?
And for all the little piggies
Life is getting worse
Always having dirt to play around in

Have you seen the bigger piggies
In their starched white shirts?
You will find the bigger piggies
Stirring up the dirt
Always have clean shirts to play around in

In their styes with all their backing
They don’t care what goes on around
In their eyes there’s something lacking
What they need’s a damn good whacking

Everywhere there’s lots of piggies
Living piggy lives
You can see them out for dinner
With their piggy wives
Clutching forks and knives to eat their bacon

New York taxpayers to shell out three billion to Jeff Bezos’ CIA liaised Amazon’s promise of 40,000 jobs. What’s wrong with this picture? The question I would pose is, how much of the three billion will see returns for the people who actually have to pay it out? How does the poor schmo from Schenectady benefit from subsidizing the artificially created upscale community in Long Island that will no doubt see inflated property values drive out the lower middle class with concurrent property tax increase and associated cost of living hikes? This taxpayer subsidy is consistent with Bezos’ raking in the hundred of millions contracting for CIA ‘cloud services’ apparently to be followed on with another ten billion providing the same for the Department of Defense, none of which brings returns to taxpaying citizens across the board. Read about it at Bloomberg:

The preceding brings up an interesting, well thought out essay on executing billionaires and politicians (within the parameters of the social contract) by Joaquin Flores; raising (in my thinking) the failed American ‘equal protection’ (of the laws) principle, perhaps the future subject of a constitutional law essay at this blog:

If CIA documents have turned up where ‘project medication’ was proposed to do the ‘truth serum’ thing (a CIA obsession since around 1950), you can bet your butt it was actually employed … disclaimers notwithstanding; sort of like when Blackwater was contracted to do CIA assassinations and Leon Panetta’s CIA claimed it was never more than a ‘powerpoint presentation’ even as Blackwater employed former green berets were admitting ‘people are getting whacked like crazy.’

Forty nine pages of declassified ‘top secret’ documents reveal the weasel-words of the USA’s government concerning the Russian government’s ‘hack’ of the DNC mails; amounting to ‘we believe it because we want to believe it.’

https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/5031716-LEOPOLD-SHAPIRO-ODNI-FOIA-RUSSIA-HACKING.html

The preceding brings up wikileaks accused of releasing the DNC mails via a Russian hack and that organization denying Russia was the source but declining to offer proof. Why? Is it because Assange’s currency as an intelligence agency asset isn’t yet entirely exhausted? Consider this: certain alternative media stars either fail to realize or selectively black out the fact Julian Assange was a critical gear in the intelligence agency (primarily CIA & MOSSAD) information operations responsible for the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ … leading to not only revolution and counter-revolution in Egypt but also the overthrow of Gaddafi and the Syrian ‘civil war.’ How do Chris Hedges, Caitlin Johnstone, Vanessa Beeley and Raul Ilargi Meijer (among others), when defending their perception of Assange as a hero, drive their square peg into the round hole of wikileaks supported the intelligence agency geopolitical engineering called the Arab Spring? A case of ‘you can’t have your cake and eat it too.’ Example given, Chris Hedges, who is otherwise often an astute social observer, has an exceptionally severe case of the ‘assangemania‘ virus:

‘Beware of Greeks bearing gifts’ or ‘Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth’?

My international readers will understand the first admonishment, but outside of a horse culture, the second might bear some explanation. So, the anecdote:

It was Summer of 1977, at the Sportsman Bar in Columbia Falls, Montana, I was drinking with a friend, George, when a grizzled sheepherder decided to interrogate us, for the fact of our long hair and his desire to know if we were hippies or the fundamentally different ‘mountain people.’ Sort of like you wouldn’t necessarily know by superficial glance, whether a horse was six years old or sixteen years old. After a few short, unsatisfactory answers to his rude interjections, the old shepherd suddenly demanded to know “How old do you think I am?” George and I looked at each other and ignored this question. Our ignoring him did not derail his determination, however, and he answered his own inquiry with a solemn and and assertive “I am forty five.”

With a nod of the head towards the ancient one (he couldn’t have been a day under a badly beat up sixty years, by all outward appearance, and looked a full ten years older or more than that) I told George “You had better check his teeth.”

My indirect but satisfactory reply caught the old man just as he was taking a swallow of his beer (as if to punctuate his declaration) and he blew the beer out his nose with involuntary laugh and as well choked on significant amount of brew that went down his windpipe and began a coughing fit so severe it changed the color of his complexion and looked as though he actually might not survive.

With the old man hanging onto the bar with both hands so as not to collapse while struggling to find his ability to breathe, George’s and my conversation went something like this:

George: My God, Ron, ‘better check his teeth’ was a little harsh.

Myself: If he dies, whose fault is it? We didn’t initiate his ass-holiness.

It seemed like five eternities, but could not have been five minutes, finally the old man had recovered his breath, and altogether satisfied we were not hippies, afterwards left us alone. As a matter of fact we were ‘mountain people’, both young war veterans who were expert horsemen and local hunters influenced by the indigenous tribal culture reflected in our long hair; rather far away, philosophically speaking, from your typical ‘peace and love’ college student/dissident types.

It follows, when it comes to rude people interjecting uninvited crude behaviors into other peoples’ lives, that old man, with his honest sense of humor and ability to laugh at himself when confronted concerning his bull-shit, was possessed of humanity ten thousand times greater than a Gina Haspel or Hakan Fidan.

Speaking of jokes that can kill people, in the 1 November update of this blog’s piece on the Khashoggi assassination, you will find this language:

“When Gina Haspel flew to Turkey to ‘review evidence’, no doubt she compared notes with Hakan Fidan on who has the better ‘insurance file’ where national players represented in the intelligence agencies heads do business based not only on common interests but also liberally blackmail each other”

The very next day, the timing couldn’t have been more fortuitous, a former head of a French intelligence agency made what amounts to an unheard of admission (big mistake), the proposed fact intelligence agencies are often in position to call the shots between nations, in international relations:

Sophie Shevardnadze: But nevertheless, when the Washington-Moscow relationship was already in tatters, sanctions were flung around and everything, heads of Russian security and intelligence services – top brass – went to the United States to meet with their American counterparts (despite the personal sanctions). It showed that if need be, two conflicting sides can still benefit from talking to each other.

Bernard Squarcini: This is where I’m telling you that on one hand, it is a necessity, and on the other hand, if we don’t want to show it, it is done in a fairly confidential way, via the intelligence services, who are trusted by the heads of state.

Shevardnadze: The intelligence services are actually right after the Ministry of Foreign Affairs,’cause their are kind of doing what the Ministry of Foreign Affairs couldn’t do? 

Squarcini: But we work together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we transmit all the tidbits of information that are brought forth that might be of concern to them, and even better, and it happened to me personally, often when I went to see my foreign counterparts, I would always go visit our ambassador in that country and would transmit fresh analysis to the embassy.

Shevardnadze: So when diplomacy fails, that’s for secret services to come into play.

Squarcini: Which is very good! Especially useful when two countries no longer talk… Like in a married couple…

Meet NATO’s Trojan Horse

It was 22 October when the CIA’s Haspel traveled to Turkey for a meeting with MIT’s (Turkey’s intelligence chief) Fidan. It was one week later, two remarkable things happened, and both are concessions to Iran; 1) it was announced eight nations, presumably including Turkey, will be exempt from sanctions if they continue doing oil business with Iran, and 2) USA tells the Saudis to wind down and quit the proxy war with Iran in Yemen.

Recalling Squarcini’s “if we don’t want to show it, it is done in a fairly confidential way, via the intelligence services” one wonders who might have been present at the meeting other than the obviously blackmailed parties, that is Haspel and Fidan. Obviously blackmailed, one might ask? Certainly.

Erdogan and Fidan are no darlings of the Iranians, the Turks have been key in creating the perfect mess in Syria, to the Iranians profound concern. If it were not for that fact, the USA military would not be camped out in Syria east of the Euphrates, on Iran’s border, as the guests of separatist minded Kurds. That Erdogan had been too stupid to see this coming, changes nothing. He blew it in the eyes of Tehran. Moreover, it wouldn’t matter who was in charge in Turkey, they’d have to cooperate with Iran in regards to the Kurds.

This brings up Turkey and Iran on opposite sides of the ‘regime change’ endeavor in Syria where the losing Sunni extremists (takfiri-salafi) will be dispersed to the four corners of the world. Certainly by now the Iranians have all of the intelligence they need to expose Erdogan and Fidan’s Salafi nature (with Fidan a member of the Turkish branch of al-Qaida since the 1990s.) The Iranians could live without Erdogan and his minions but meanwhile, when stuck with this bozo leading their neighboring nation, the point has come the blackmailed Erdogan regime can be the Iranians’ useful idiot.

On the Western democracies side, it is simply inadmissible, however consistent with Erdogan’s policies, that 1) a serving NATO intelligence chief of 8+ years, Hakan Fidan, is a bona fide Salafi terrorist with two decades passed since he’d taken membership in the Turkish branch of al-Qaida. It follows, the gross imbecility of the other NATO nations intelligence agencies either 2) unaware of this information and associated potential for career ending scandal or what’s worse 3) knowing but allowing this to go unchallenged, would put every Western intelligence head at risk of not only scandal but in jeopardy of prison term.

The result? This not only explains Iran’s history of exploiting Fidan where he…

“arranged the secret black marketing of Iran through Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s government”

…as a means of breaking past USA imposed sanctions but explains how it is the USA is presently taking steps to make the renewed sanctions regime ineffective enough Iran will survive until alternative (to SWIFT) oil trade mechanism is in place, and conceding the proxy war with Iran in Yemen; following the meeting between the CIA’s Haspel and MIT’s Fidan. This also should explain certain European nations resisting the Israeli lap-dog Atlantic Council’s policy on Iran in regards to reimposing sanctions; raising the question in geopolitical chess terms: what other, related avenues to ‘check’, could possibly be in the works? Stay tuned.
