As the establishment (read American oligarchs) sets its attack dogs on President Moron, er, that is Trump, the palace coup plotters’ intrigue is very nearly transparent.

At the center of the hysteria is the ‘Russian hack’ of the DNC [Democratic National Committee] which is an idea originally emanating from the HRC [Hillary Rodham Clinton] camp. The point of this hysterical accusation is to detract from the actual content of the mails concerning the inside job plotted to derail sheep dog Bernie Sanders (‘feel the burn’) whose tail remains faithfully (or fearfully, readers choice) tucked between his legs, also known as the ‘bernies not barking’ phenomenon as he keeps his mouth firmly shut.

Now, with the Democrat aligned oligarchs altogether invested in this lie (we’ll demonstrate it is a lie, keep reading) at the core of this McCarthy era redux, the Coe Cult clique embedded in the Republicans has seen its investment in Trump come closer to paying off; with the planned elevation of Pence and consolidation of power.

How the Democrats are being snookered in the senate slaying (coming impeachment trial conviction) of Trump without realizing is, the double fraternal brothers (sort of like double first cousins) Mike Pence and Jeff Sessions, very ably conspired to get rid of the neo-liberal mafioso James Comey and wellah! All of the media comparisons are to Nixon and the so-called ‘Saturday Night Massacre.’ Probably 98% of the ‘mainstream’ (the truly fake) news followers are focused on Trump fired Comey without realizing it was Sessions sent up the recommendation.

It doesn’t really matter who’d played the role of Worm-Tongue in Trump’s ear (Priebus is the likely culprit), he took the bait brilliantly.

Pence and Sessions are Republican fraternal brothers, Senate fraternal brothers (we’ll combine the preceding) and Coe Cult (National Prayer Breakfast) fraternal Brothers. If you miss the significance of this last, it relates to the ‘deal’ Trump made with  the religious right to get the conservative evangelical vote (like a mafia don’s kiss prior to a capo killing you.) Mike Pence for his running mate and Jeff Sessions his Attorney General were the requirements, that and not just one general, but several, were the price Trump paid with his ‘art of the deal.’ What a sucker.

Democrat  Chronology

The Clinton controlled (via Wasserman) DNC sabotages Bernie Sanders (with plausible assist via a Clinton aligned CIA engineering primaries computer vote fraud.)

DNC employee Seth Rich leaks the DNC mails to WikiLeaks, demonstrating an inside, proactive sabotage of Sanders’ campaign.

Seth Rich is assassinated by professional hit (likely arranged through the Central Intelligence Agency’s long time professional coordinating hit jobs, Enrique Prado.)

Julian Assange suggests Seth Rich was the DNC ‘hack’ (actually leaked) source but then backs off to what amounts to a ‘Glomar’ response…

…but it is former British Foreign Service Officer Craig Murray appears to have confirmed the often unreliable Assange, with his:

“I know who leaked them. I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things”

murray_wikileaks-1

Craig Murray had been sent packing by Her Majesty’s government for the reason he could not stomach the underhandedness of the Western democracies cozying up to filthy autocrats and unlike Assange, can be considered a reliable reporter. Certainly Murray is not lying. But he is not naming Seth Rich (or anyone) for reasons that may be reasonably assessed .. Murray, a former ambassador, would likely both; understand the implications of the Rich assassination and may have actually been indirectly responsible for the Rich murder with simple clandestine rules breaking (carelessness) that ultimately provided Rich’s identity to the CIA. In any case, Craig Murray is a walking dead man and should come clean. Then, at least he could die knowing he’d done the right thing. Or perhaps he’s taken the clandestine world coward’s route and put together an ‘insurance file’ that insures critical information will only be released in  the event something happens to him. Meanwhile, he’ll keep his mouth shut (as his conscience slowly dies.)

Obama’s lame duck CIA chief, a Clinton aligned neo-liberal, comes up with the “Russian hack” false-flag story to damage Trump and the CIA’s press corps goes into full ‘backstop’ (clandestine term of creating lies to shield lies) mode, so blatant…

wapo_grid_hack-1

…as to discover the CIA via Washington Post had planted a totally false story on a supposed Russian hack of American infrastructure (such stories are routinely invented to give a sense of continuity to the lies constituting the (in this case) Agency’s proxy/press instigated ‘Russian hack’ hysteria/witch-hunt.)

Republican Chronology

 When Trump had entered the Republican primaries (likely with a MOSSAD push), it became clear the Republican ‘mainstream’ politicians were as out of touch with the party’s non-evangelical conservative base as the Democrats’ ‘mainstream’ were alienated to their Sanders’ progressive base. The CIA’s computer vote fraud team was committed to Hillary in the Democrat primaries and the Republicans were allowed to slug it out with Trump in the Republican primaries.

Trump won with the non-evangelical ‘alt-right’ pushing him over the top but then had to make ‘a deal’ to get the evangelicals on board for the general election. That deal included Pence, Preibus, Sessions and their select military generals (excludes Mike Flynn, an expendable Trump aligned nationalist.) The wild card no one is allowed to so much as mention is the Netanyahu’s MOSSAD covertly backing Trump to get Friedman in the door via Kushner.

The power lines up into these factions; The evangelicals (Pence-Sessions) allied with their ideological friends at the Pentagon (represented in the generals), the Israeli faction (Kushner-Friedman), and lastly, Bannon, representing the non-evangelical nationalist base; an anathema both the evangelicals and Israelis are determined to marginalize.

The Pentagon’s NSA likely neutralized the routine CIA computerized vote fraud (in this case the CIA’s attempt was on Hillary’s behalf) in the general election.

Wild Cards

Meanwhile, the NSA dare not call out the CIA on the Seth Richards hit or the CIA’s the ‘Russians did it’ false-flag cover stories; for two reasons primarily: the evangelicals and their generals would like to reassert control over the CIA, lost with the appointment of Soros aligned John Brennan during Obama’s second term (whence the ‘reorganization’ of ‘the Agency’), and the second, even larger reason being, if all began to unravel at the CIA, the intelligence community as a whole would be threatened; example would be the Pentagon/CIA joint venture trafficking Afghanistan’s heroin. There’s so much institutional or inter-agency incest, no one would be left in secure position. That’s where Comey comes into the play.

The primary job of the FBI director has been, at least since Bush appointed Robert Mueller, is protecting the CIA from accountability concerning:

  1. international arms and narcotics trafficking and associated money laundering (black budget.)
  2. ongoing Gladio false-flag terrorism (consolidation of power over ‘democratic’ institutions.)

At the very last minute Comey likely saw intelligence projecting Hillary’s (and by inference, the CIA’s) defeat and took the bait of Anthony Weiner’s laptop to realign himself with Trump (the consummate opportunist scenario.) Alternatively, the CIA, at the last moment realizing they’d bet on a losing horse, instructed Comey to betray Hillary and attempt to hang on with his move to ingratiate himself with Trump. The evangelicals were able to exploit this by having Sessions recommend Trump fire Comey; a back-stabbing gambit from Trump’s inner circle pointed towards Trump’s eventual removal to place their evangelical man Pence in charge; something they never could have accomplished by straightforward means via the primaries. What will likely happen is, this globalized world’s finances will enable some tenuous ties to Russian money in Trump’s or associates ventures and there will be completely blown out of proportion accusations of concealment that should be enough to push Trump out of office.

The Israelis will tolerate this, their ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend’ approach (long represented in AIPAC) will kick the can of the American evangelical anti-Semitism (it’s built into their theology) a bit further down the road towards Armageddon. In regards to that, the encroaching missile encirclement that rightfully has the Russians concerned is an offensive move, could eventually, equally play as a missile shield against Israel rather than Iran (which actually makes more sense, Israel has nukes Iran may not yet possess) with the lunacy of the evangelical belief run amok; holding their crusader’s banner will be the last one flying above Jerusalem’s Temple Mount and the Jews as a nation are either converted or destroyed (something the Israelis are well aware of in the marriage of momentary convenience.)

Finally, what few seem to realize is, the military-industrial complex boards, liberally populated with retired generals, are dominated by ‘prosperity gospel’ personalities who believe in two things, primarily:

  1. if you are getting filthy rich it is because ‘God is blessing you’ and
  2. if this all points to Armageddon, all ‘believers’ are blessed because prophecy is being fulfilled

Meanwhile, here’s a pretty good assessment from Colin Powell’s former Chief of Staff, Lawrence Wilkerson. One thing he misses is the Seth Rich DNC leak but he nails Pence and the Russian hysteria surrounding Trump’s upcoming removal and associated WAR (yep, that one’s in the works, and it could be a civilization ending event)

“Trump needs a good war and Pence is waiting in the wings to lead it”

Note: as I find time and inclination, I’ll come back to add links –

It stretches the imagination a former UK ambassador would make an amateur espionage move worthy of a cub scout playing spy. But that’s what would appear Craig Murray had done in the case of the DNC emails leaked to WikiLeaks.

That Murray would be a high value target for American counter-intelligence to monitor for the reason of his high profile association with WikiLeaks is beyond obvious. For Murray then to state

murray_wikileaks-1

“I know who leaked them. I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things”

…goes to the practically bizarre when coming from a former United Kingdom ambassador to Uzbekistan. The UK is little different to the USA in the case of embassies providing cover for spies; in which case Murray should at least have some rudimentary espionage understanding such as YOU DO NOT MEET YOUR SOURCE DIRECTLY WHEN YOU ARE A HIGH PROFILE TARGET OF YOUR ADVERSARY’S COUNTER-INTELLIGENCE HUNTING YOUR (in this case, WikiLeaks) SOURCE(S)

Then, we have WikiLeak’s Assange giving what amounts to a ‘Glomar’ ‘I will neither confirm or deny’ response concerning the murder (assassination?) of Seth Rich after appearing to suggest Rich was the source of the DNC emails leak:

Beyond this, WikiLeaks offering a $20,000 reward for the solving of the Seth Rich murder is laughable, that’s what an American west coast upscale community would offer for the arrest of a serial killer of the neighborhood’s cats. Two million dollars might get two seconds’ attention of a corruptible counter-intelligence agent with knowledge of a professional hit on Seth Rich, twenty million might even net an inside the agency sucker willing to take the exceedingly high risk to one’s life (almost certain death) that would attend selling out an agency hit man for substantial lucre. In truth, the WikiLeaks reward offer amounts to little more than a tabloid publicity stunt.

Narcissism is a blinding thing; and a self-righteous narcissism is no exception. Ambassador Murray could have every good intention but on the face of it, he had seriously screwed up. Murray and WikiLeaks should come clean, there is little to lose. If Seth Rich was a source, and Murray had met with him, there is more to be gained by stating so; there would be nothing given up any intelligence agency involved would not already know. The only thing at stake here would be a hit to ego & image.

Craig Murray stating ‘I had a serious lapse of professional judgement and this almost certainly resulted in the death of Seth Rich’ would be the most newsworthy move WikiLeaks could take if in any respect this were true; to counter the CIA’s ‘the Russians hacked the DNC’ propaganda lie, in which there is much invested by the agency.

Meanwhile, Murray subsequently barred from the United States appears to be, in a  manner of speaking, a message to Murray: ‘thank you very much for the lapse of judgement, we have taken full advantage and won’t be requiring your services after this.’

And were Murray to sincerely, thoroughly investigate the history of Sam Adams, he might be grateful he could not personally attend his receiving an award with a namesake who cynically exploited patriotism to benefit his close associate’s considerable smuggling enterprise

I was looking for an article I’d written some years back, while pulling together information for a piece on Julian Assange (stay tuned), and I stumbled across this piece. With all of the ‘fake news’ propaganda swirling like a toilet spin in the  mainstream news rooms of the USA, here is a flashback to my ‘Stool & Dunce Cap’ blog at Alternet prior to that ‘alternative news’ outlet shutting down my soap box. Recovered via the internet ‘way back machine’, some of the links are dead.

February 2012 has been recorded in the annals of history, and according to my personal philosophy and Native traditions, it is in order to give gifts on the occasion of celebrating my 61st year. This particular gift is a tool created for anyone who wished or dared to pursue penetrating the illusions we are fed by media.

Of the many shameless liars prostituting for fascist, racist killers while pursuing profit in the name of democracy, the New York Times is the head I propose to deliver to my public readership on a platter. Let’s call it a gift of public service to humanity.

That the New York Times is a corporate prostitute frequently fronting CIA propaganda operations, is a matter I have delved into on previous occasion.

Now, the point is to show in a few easy reading pages, how anyone can tear these ‘information operations’ [psy-ops] apart and determine for themselves what is actually behind the story. With the long time CIA associated ‘Freedom House’ in trouble in Egypt in recent days, we can use this Times ‘Freedom House’ friendly propaganda story

Times quote:  “Two of the American groups, affiliated with the Republican and Democratic parties, said they have taught the nuts and bolts of grass-roots organizing, political campaigns and democratic elections to anyone willing to listen, trying to avoid favoring any Egyptian political faction. Another, Freedom House, said it has trained young activists and run international exchange programs. The fourth American group, the International Center for Journalists, does training on how a free press operates”

Gee, if they are teaching them anything like the New York Times operates (more on NYT operation a bit further on), I suggest they read up on former CIA agent Phillip Agee’s analysis of ‘Freedom House’ organizational utility:

Agee quote: ”One may wonder why the CIA would be needed in these programs. There were several reasons. One reason from the beginning was the CIA’s long experience and huge stable of agents and contacts in the civil societies of countries around the world. By joining with the CIA, NED and [US]AID would come on board an on-going complex of operations whose funding they could take over while leaving the secret day-to-day direction on the ground to CIA officers. In addition someone had to monitor and report the effectiveness of the local recipients’ activities. NED would not have people in the field to do this, nor would their core foundations in normal conditions. And since NED money was ostensibly private, only the CIA had the people and techniques to carry out discreet control in order to avoid compromising the civil society recipients, especially if they were in opposition to their governments. Finally, the CIA had ample funds of its own to pass quietly when conditions required”

Now, why would the New York Times presentation be so far removed from reality, when compared to the CIA actuality? A few of the Times controlling influences (Directors) and their associations:

NYT Director Brenda BarnesChicago Council on Global Affairs [formerly Chicago Council on Foreign Relations] which tracks to > National Democratic Institute which is a USA Department of State funded [USAID] front for intelligence agencies and multi-national corporate board room ‘market security’ venture and subject of the article

NYT Director Thomas Middelhoff Bertelsmann AG which has media holdings in, and can influence opinion in, 63 countries around the world

NYT Director Janet RobinsonCarnegie Corporation where Robinson sits with 1% players, including Morgan Stanley and Rothschild bankers

NYT Director William KennardJoint Center for Political and Economic StudiesUnited States Chamber of Commerce which is the USA’s NUMBER ONE 1% corporate policy entity > blatant example here

NYT Director Doreen TobinJP Morgan a 1% player

NYT Director James KiltsMetLife a 1% player

It is likely safe to say the New York Times directors sitting on the boards of MetLife, JP Morgan, Carnegie Corporation, and Bertelsmann AG all in turn hold investments in stocks and these directors have portfolios with a vested interest in propping an overall scheme up.

That you will find bad people with intelligence agency ties in the most unexpected places can be quite disconcerting:

NYT Director Lynn G Dolnick > African Wildlife Foundation leading to research related examples of USAID and intelligence agencies involvement here and here

When the inter-related corporate players actual pecuniary interests are revealed by exposing lateral associations [as opposed to analyzing vertical isolated chains of corporate command and misleading portraits of their head to head relationships to governments] it becomes very clear the entire process is a form of colonialism, with clusters of corporate players making up what amount to modern fiefs.

The USA ‘democracy’ promoting ‘democracy’ provides cover for any number of wealthy sociopath personalities in any given circumstance, ripping off various natural resources concessions in the nations manipulated in the scheme with intelligence agencies and corporate boards calling the shots from where the various players vector.

Meanwhile, less resource rich but strategically located nations are heavily militarized and manipulated to prop up what is in essence a scam organized towards the looting of the innocents, largely upheld with weapons sales subsidized by the USA taxpayer. We fork over the billions in military aid which are then spent to buy weapons from the defense industry which in turn props up the looting of other nations timber, diamonds, oil, et cetera, often bought on the cheap via proxy ‘rebel’ movements [sterling example here].

This racket is becoming clear and it is small wonder there are incessant legislative campaigns to clamp down on the internet with its information freedoms.

The fallout of this corporate colonial ‘get rich[er] quick’ scheme promoted in the guise of ‘democracy’ has produced hatred of the western industrialized nations, hate for the USA particularly, and underlies the birth and spread of the so-called ‘terrorism’ which in turn has been used to justify more and larger ‘security’ programs propping up the very same scheme used during the so-called ‘cold war’ now renamed the ‘war on terror’ in what has becoming a greed based avalanche of world instability.

Combined with current events factoids, Wikipedia and Sourcewatch, anyone with basic internet competence [ability to follow links and do key word searches such as ‘African Wildlife Foundation, MI6, CIA’ or ‘Fossey Foundation, arms trafficking’] and is able to make and organize notes while sifting out blatantly misinformed or amateur articles, can learn to overcome disinformation, do their own analysis, map the corporate activities, identify the rip-offs and peoples exploited by these schemes, all while identifying the actual players and motives behind the New York Times propaganda.

Apply the preceding method and the result is quite clear; the New York Times is but one arm of a mechanism to deceive on behalf of a corporate centered sociopath get-mega-rich[er]-quick scheme of the 1%, exploiting Americans belief in their institutions, any consequence to the USA and actual democracy be damned in process

Since I’d penned this article in 2012, much information has been developed on USA intelligence manipulating media, not least google, time to time, setting filters to screen out information from public access. Noting the horns sprouting on my head, here is Russia’s top search engine, Yandex, which does not mind at all if you search in the Roman alphabet using the English language:

Mephisto

Why is the USA media, intelligence agencies and congress in hysteria over “Russian propaganda”? Because the Russians have,  for quite some time, had the absolute upper hand in the growing field of alternative media. How is that?

What the Russians appear to have clearly recognized is how to take advantage of the corrupt nature of the western ‘mainstream’ press, an institution which has been co-opted by western intelligence agencies for a very long time.

The Russian method? It could not be more simple; report the actual facts in the geopolitical contest and when this is inconvenient, practice lies by omission. Here is an example: Both NATO (an extension of the USA) and Russia are contesting Syria over competing energy pipelines, primarily. One from Iran transiting Syria, favored by Russia; the other from Qatar transiting Syria, favored by NATO.

The disadvantage NATO has faced in this competition is Syria controlled by a Russian ally, that is, the government of Basher al-Assad.

Because NATO sponsored Salafist militants to effect ‘regime change’ (the preferred NATO model since 1980s Afghanistan), a large number had, not surprisingly, gone out of control (e.g. Islamic State is a direct result.) Paradoxically, NATO aligned states have pitched the anti-Assad endeavor in terms of a ‘war on terror’, and there are so many NATO lies (and lies to cover lies) in the co-opted western media, the Russians only need to stick to the facts (omitting the pipeline) to ultimately win the propaganda war. What’s more is, Russia further only need stand back and allow western dissident journalists to dig up the real facts on the ground:

  1. NATO’s ‘moderate’ rebels are aligned with al-Qaida…………….. ✓
  2. NATO policy created the conditions for the rise of IS…………… ✓
  3. Western ally Saudi Arabia bankrolls the Salafist extremists……. ✓
  4. NATO member Turkey has protected & supplied IS…………….. ✓

Depending on the geopolitical reality of the day, for instance whether the paranoid ego-maniac Sultan Erdogan of Turkey is behaving well or not, the stories by western dissident journalists that will withstand a close scrutiny are run in Russian or Russia friendly media outlets. The result? Odds are 100:1 you’ll get more reliable information from Russian state TV or Russian sponsored websites than from ABC, CBS, CNN or NBC.

Shoot the messenger

 At the end of the day, the only solution NATO’s main sponsor, the USA, can come up with to protect it’s colossal efforts to deceive and manipulate the western public is to silence dissident journalists by cutting off access to alternative media. Zerohedge on the present proposal:

“On November 30, one week after the Washington Post launched its witch hunt against “Russian propaganda fake news”, with 390 votes for, the House quietly passed “H.R. 6393, Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017“, sponsored by California Republican Devin Nunes (whose third largest donor in 2016 is Google parent Alphabet, Inc), a bill which deals with a number of intelligence-related issues, including Russian propaganda, or what the government calls propaganda, and hints at a potential crackdown on “offenders.”

“A quick skim of the bill reveals “Title V—Matters relating to foreign countries”,  whose Section 501 calls for the government to “counter active measures by Russia to exert covert influence … carried out in  coordination with, or at the behest of, political leaders or the security services of the Russian Federation and the role of the Russian Federation has been hidden or not acknowledged publicly.”

“The section lists the following definitions of media manipulation:

  • Establishment or funding of a front group.
  • Covert broadcasting.
  • Media manipulation.
  • Disinformation and forgeries.
  • Funding agents of influence.
  • Incitement and offensive counterintelligence.
  • Assassinations.
  • Terrorist acts.

“As ActivistPost correctly notes, it is easy to see how this law, if passed by the Senate and signed by the president, could be used to target, threaten, or eliminate so-called “fake news” websites, a list which has been used to arbitrarily define any website, or blog, that does not share the mainstream media’s proclivity to serve as the Public Relations arm of a given administration [see the immediate preceding post, ‘On Fake News‘, at this blog]

Russian victory enhanced

The reactionary moves by the NATO/USA propagandists to having been bested in the game by Russia only sweetens the Russian victory; similar to Erdogan’s over-reaction in cracking down on anyone who doesn’t follow the ruling party line in Turkey, the USA governing elite is sowing ever deepening dissent in the psyche of those Americans actually inclined to think, understand and know for themselves what is actually going on. The sort of reactionary behavior embodied in the color of law [anti-constitutional order represented in the ‘national security state’] governing the United States and its allies destabilizes any society.

Propaganda budget

The USA media mouthpieces are not going to broadcast the American propaganda budget, so let’s turn to Russia’s Sputnik to get the facts:

“Last year, the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG), the US federal agency responsible for Voice of America and Radio Liberty/Radio Free Europe, among others, requested a substantial budget increase. Seeking a boost of $30 million, the BBG’s budget soared to $751.5 million.

“That was, evidently, not enough money. President Obama’s newly proposed budget for fiscal year 2017 proposes another massive increase in spending for the BBG. If granted, the agency will receive nearly $778 million, a roughly $27 million increase” [over the $30 million boost]

The Russians are willing to broadcast the factual news the USA’s intelligence agency co-opted media mouth-pieces will not. Point made?

Western press propagandizing Americans

How much of the USA’s propaganda budget is actually aimed at Americans?

The newest version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) includes an amendment that would legalize the use of propaganda on the American public, reports Michael Hastings of BuzzFeed.

The amendment — proposed by Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) and Adam Smith (D-Wash.) and passed in the House last Friday afternoon — would effectively nullify the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, which explicitly forbids information and psychological operations aimed at influencing U.S. public opinion

Huh. And yeah, that was made into law.

Odd bedfellows

Glenn Greenwald’s related, and otherwise excellent piece ‘Washington Post Disgracefully Promotes a McCarthyite Blacklist From a New, Hidden, and Very Shady Group‘ throws a bone to one of the very worst propaganda prostitutes extant on the world-wide-web: Elliot Higgins of Bellingcat. WTF.

A Ronald Thomas West assessment

Alternative title: Target Iran

Our republic went off the rails with the National Security Act of 1947 and the birth of the national security state. Since, the votes at the boards of Northrop-Grumman, DuPont, Chevron, Unocal, et al, have come to carry more weight in the direction the USA has taken than those votes of any organized political bloc. When the dust has settled, chances are Pence will be the shadow president a-la Dick Cheney and Trump the ventriloquist’s frustrated lap dummy. The national security state (read corporate boards) will keep it’s python’s squeeze on our institutions intact; what remains to be seen is what modifications will be made. The Trump ‘team’ includes some of the nastiest military-industrial and corporate personalities American has on offer in chicken hawks Rudy Giuliani whose dealings with the Mojahedin-e-Khalq has seldom been honestly exposed, and John Bolton who wants a war with Iran. And not least, former US Army intelligence officer and Bill Clinton CIA Director James ‘Bomb Iran & North Korea‘ Woolsey.

What do these personalities hold in common with a google ban on ‘fake news’?  They will never tell you the biggest fake news spigots are CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC and MSNBC, outlets that NEVER report on what this is all about; oil and gas, not terrorism as put forward by the western media. The Bush invasion of Afghanistan, where the CIA had (1980s) instigated and supported what became al-Qaida, was about a pipeline. Iraq was about oil where USA policy subsequently caused an al-Qaida branch to morph into Islamic State. The related Syria conflict is about competing pipelines, one favored by Russia, the other favored by NATO. Recalling Robert Kennedy Jr, earlier this year, penned an excellent expose on Syria and the competing pipelines behind that ‘covert’ war waged by the USA employing proxies, including radical Islamist groups aligned with al-Qaida:

“the Russians, who sell 70 percent of their gas exports to Europe, viewed the Qatar/Turkey pipeline as an existential threat. In Putin’s view, the Qatar pipeline is a NATO plot to change the status quo, deprive Russia of its only foothold in the Middle East, strangle the Russian economy and end Russian leverage in the European energy market. In 2009, Assad announced that he would refuse to sign the agreement to allow the pipeline to run through Syria “to protect the interests of our Russian ally.”

“Assad further enraged the Gulf’s Sunni monarchs by endorsing a Russian-approved “Islamic pipeline” running from Iran’s side of the gas field through Syria and to the ports of Lebanon. The Islamic pipeline would make Shiite Iran, not Sunni Qatar, the principal supplier to the European energy market and dramatically increase Tehran’s influence in the Middke [sic] East and the world. Israel also was understandably determined to derail the Islamic pipeline, which would enrich Iran and Syria and presumably strengthen their proxies, Hezbollah and Hamas.

“Secret cables and reports by the U.S., Saudi and Israeli intelligence agencies indicate that the moment Assad rejected the Qatari pipeline, military and intelligence planners quickly arrived at the consensus that fomenting a Sunni uprising in Syria to overthrow the uncooperative Bashar Assad was a feasible path to achieving the shared objective of completing the Qatar/Turkey gas link”

The full essay can be read HERE.

The RFK Jr piece clearly echoes an earlier essay by Gore Vidal and a proposed pipeline USA based multinationals coveted, requiring a war in Afghanistan:

“As it proved, the conquest of Afghanistan had nothing to do with Osama. He was simply a pretext for replacing the Taliban with a relatively stable government that would allow Union Oil of California to lay its pipeline for the profit of, among others, the Cheney-Bush junta.

“Background? All right. The headquarters of Unocal are, as might be expected, in Texas. In December 1997, Taliban representatives were invited to Sugarland, Texas. At that time, Unocal had already begun training Afghan men in pipeline construction, with US government approval. BBC News, (4 December 1997) : `A spokesman for the company Unocal said the Taliban were expected to spend several days at the company’s [Texas] headquarters . . . a BBC regional correspondent says the proposal to build a pipeline across Afghanistan is part of an international scramble to profit from developing the rich energy resources of the Caspian Sea.’ The Inter Press Service (IPS) reported: `some Western businesses are warming up to the Taliban despite the movement’s institutionalisation of terror, massacres, abductions and impoverishment.’ CNN (6 October 1996): `The United States wants good ties [with the Taliban] but can’t openly seek them while women are being oppressed.’

“The Taliban, rather better organised than rumoured, hired for PR one Leila Helms, a niece of Richard Helms, former director of the CIA. In October 1996, the Frankfurter Rundschau reported that Unocal `has been given the go-ahead from the new holders of power in Kabul to build a pipeline from Turkmenistan via Afghanistan to Pakistan . . .’ This was a real coup for Unocal as well as other candidates for pipelines, including Condoleezza’s old employer Chevron. Although the Taliban was already notorious for its imaginative crimes against the human race, the Wall Street Journal, scenting big bucks, fearlessly announced: `Like them or not, the Taliban are the players most capable of achieving peace in Afghanistan at this moment in history.’ The New York Times (26 May 1997) leapt aboard the pipeline juggernaut. `The Clinton administration has taken the view that a Taliban victory would act as counterweight to Iran . . . and would offer the possibility of new trade routes that could weaken Russian and Iranian influence in the region.’

“But by 1999, it was clear that the Taliban could not provide the security we would need to protect our fragile pipelines. The arrival of Osama as warrior for Allah on the scene refocused, as it were, the bidding.”

The full essay can be read HERE

What remains to be seen is, whether this group surrounding Trump, as responsible for the spread of terror via proxy wars abroad as anyone, has determined some dialing back is in order. Clearly the model of covertly supporting Wahabi extremism to effect regime change to benefit big oil & gas has increasingly spun out of control over the decades, since the ultimate stupidity of using religious extremists to wage proxy wars had been initiated in Afghanistan by Robert Gates under Reagan.

Just as large a question is, has Bolton’s, Woolsey’s and Giuliani’s hostility towards Russian ally Iran been tempered? Almost certainly not. Insofar as what the actuality of policy will initiate, a comment of Woolsey is particularly disturbing, as it had been made in the context of Russia and geopolitics…

“I think what Mr. Trump does is much more important than what he says”

considering:

Woolsey chairs the Leadership Council of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, an important bastion of hawkish “pro-Israel” advocacy in the United States that has served as an outpost for many well-known rightist ideologues. Among his activities at FDD has been to support the work of its Energy Security” program, which advocates for the United States to break “break the oil monopoly” that helps prop up “regimes and individuals who fund terrorist activities”

Based on open source analysis, it would appear this preceding applies to Iran as opposed to Saudi Arabia. Rabid Iran hater Bibi Netanyahu has a new best friend in Washington. Be informed; Woolsey was a top McCain advisor when McCain mimicked the Beach Boys:

Erdogan_Character

^ The CIA will sleep with anyone ^

How Dumb is the CIA Part Three

Now, in (post-coup attempt) Turkey it’s a choice between the democratically elected but paranoid narcissist Erdogan, who’s been intimate with the CIA in the worst of the criminal efforts to overthrow Assad, or we’ll get whoever NATO (the future CIA sponsored coup) will again attempt replacing him with. Some choice. Now, Erdogan is behaving somewhat like Mao’s ‘Gang of Four’ had during the cultural revolution (democratic principles have recently died in Turkey the attentive might notice) while embarking on a massive purge of the CIA sponsored Fethullah Gülen movement and turning to the Russians to keep him in power.

Meanwhile (pre-coup attempt) a Gulen associated newspaper, Today’s Zaman, had been shut down by Erdogan following its’ reporting Turkey’s intelligence agency MIT was doing business with Islamic State (supplying arms), as well MIT had facilitated supplying the sarin components used by al-Qaida at Ghouta, Syria in August 2013 (blamed in western media on Assad.) The journalists were jailed. The CHP deputies (members of parliament) who’d produced the sarin investigative files (by now jailed investigating police and judges) have since had their immunity lifted. The main opposition CHP (Republican People’s Party), also under repression, can hardly be accused of any historic sympathy for Gulen. The censored reporting checks out as absolutely legitimate and had been doing the CIA no favors. So, who did the shutting down of Today’s Zaman benefit? It follows, the post-coup attempt Gulen ‘fifth column’ purge argument is simplistic, inaccurate, serves as cover for a much wider purge on behalf of the blossoming dictator Erdogan, and as well has been about shutting up news outlets exposing Erdogan as complicit in CIA associated crimes; as many more journalists have since been arrested. It’s not a black & white Gulen versus Erdogan movie folks. If the CHP has been recently linking up with the so-called Gulen movement, it is most certainly survival driven. Then, there’d been the reporting on the (not so small) matter of Islamic State doing the bulk of its oil exports via Erdogan’s Turkey, as noted previously by the Russians among others (as well admitted by the Pentagon.)

A bit of post-coup attempt levity brought to Turkey’s purge of the so-called ‘Gulen movement’ or ‘fifth column’ story racing through alternative media would be an analogy; if every Reform Jew in the USA were fired from their civil service job, inclusive of police, judges, educators, military, legislators, mayors and more, because their leadership were international criminals in bed with MOSSAD via AIPAC, the result would be tens of thousands of honest civil servants who went to work every day simply to do a honest job; purged as a so-called ‘fifth column.’ Tens upon tens of thousands of firings and arrests in Turkey because Gulen has slept with the CIA (Erdogan has done that as well) cannot be construed to be neutralizing a ‘fifth column’ but should rather be construed to be a fracturing society on the road to a police state and likely civil war. The CIA associated Gulen’s notorious rival, the (until just recently) CIA associated paranoid-narcissist Erdogan, might be in some respects popular but popularity does not excuse world class crimes.

Meanwhile, the Russians might consider the criminal character and motives of Erdogan, now that he’s pivoting in their direction (I’m certain Mr Putin has no illusions about the filthy character embodied in the viciously corrupt, current President of Turkey.) It follows, NATO is about to come apart at the seams, as Turkey had been their historic under-belly access to Russia and storage site of up to 100 tactical nuclear weapons, guarded by Erdogan’s military. No one should envy the blackmail our Pentagon will be required to perform (or be subjected to) in attempt to correct another CIA world class screw-up that can never be admitted; as it would appear the CIA, with a failed coup attempt, just handed control of a Pentagon nuclear arsenal to an unstable paranoid, Erdogan, nominally in charge of a nation in process of imploding.

Note 1: The several months previous to the attempted coup evacuation of American dependents at Incirlik points to previous coup attempt knowledge and contingency planning by the Americans.

Note 2: Those inclined to endorse Erdogan’s likely mistaken belief the attempted coup was orchestrated by the US military at Incirlik airbase should be disabused of such a fantasy; recalling military career is a common CIA operative cover, little different to the Department of State diplomatic corps. Any USA initiated coup out of Incirlik would involve military cover but is unlikely of military origin. Former Pentagon liaison to the CIA, Colonel Fletcher Prouty, had pointed to the distinct danger to democracies by career CIA advancing in seniority so far as the Pentagon under cover of United States military officer career (in his suppressed book ‘The Secret Team‘)

Note 3: Seven thousand militarized Turkish police suddenly mobilized at Adana, Turkey, location of NATO’s Incirlik airbase coinciding with the emergency visit of the USA’s top military commander, sends a message concerning the facility where Turkey secures up to 100 of NATO’s (one source gives 90, another source states 50, a third source gives 70 USA provided) tactical nuclear weapons. Setting aside Turkish military, the suddenly mobilized Turkish police alone considerably outnumber the Americans securing the nukes at Incirlik.

Note 4: One wonders what role the apocalyptic Doug Coe cult plays in a circumstance of having penetrated the CIA and USA military intelligence: “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 [And] They always had a lot of Army intelligence guys involved, Pentagon guys.” The better analysts should get on with investigating that creepy connection; by comparison it could make Gulen look like a saint. When it comes to a religious movement, and possibility of the Doug Coe cult using Fethullah Gülen for cover, Erdogan could be altogether barking up the wrong tree.

I won’t be doing much of this in future (or at all if I could get out of bureaucratic immigration limbo and onto the farm) but have kids and care about the world we’re handing to them –

Popping in from the cold to post up the infrequent essay; the ’28 pages’ that pins blame for 9/11 on the Saudis was just too much to ignore. Meanwhile, it’ll be sweet when I can get free of the incessant bureaucratic demands of establishing residence (country undisclosed) and get out to the micro-scale organic farm where I’ll have little time for this sort of s**t:

It’s been called “28 pages of misdirection”

OPPORTUNITY: 9/11 War Games

“Cheney was managing multiple war games and terror drills on 9/11 that paralyzed U.S. Air Force response.

“In May of 2001 Dick Cheney was placed directly in charge of managing the “seamless integration” of all training exercises throughout the federal government and military agencies by presidential mandate. The morning of 9/11 began with multiple training exercises of war games and terror drills which Cheney, as mandated by the president, was placed in charge of managing.

“War games & terror drills included live-fly exercises with military aircraft posing as hijacked aircraft over the United States, as well as simulated exercises that placed “false blips” (radar injects indicating virtual planes) on FAA radar screens. One exercise titled NORTHERN VIGILANCE pulled Air Force fighters up into Canada simulating a Russian air attack, so there were very few fighters remaining on the east coast to respond. All of this paralyzed Air Force response ensuring that fighter jocks couldn’t stop 9/11.

“An unknown individual or command center referred to by Major Don Arias of NORAD as the “maestro” coordinated the war games. It is possible there was more than one maestro, but no one will name names. FTW has asked this question of everyone in relevant government and military positions, to no avail. Our investigation has found the maestro was either Dick Cheney, General Ralph “Ed” Eberhart, or both.

“Whoever was coordinating the Air Force war games was under the management and direction of Dick Cheney, who was also in charge of managing a terror drill being set up on the West Side of downtown New York on 9/11 titled Tripod 2. This exercise set up a command and control center on 9/11 that was configured exactly like the one lost that morning in WTC 7. It was the perfect command center to respond to the crisis, and it was under Dick Cheney’s management before the hijackings occurred. How convenient.

“Dick Cheney was one of the main government officials deciding that such extensive war games would take place on 9/11. This was when American intelligence had collected dozens of warnings from governments and intelligence agencies indicating that terrorists were planning to hijack civilian aircraft and crash them into American targets on the ground during the week of September 9th, 2001”

Preceding from ‘Crossing the Rubicon’

“These 28-pages prove that the United States knew their ally Saudi Arabia carried out 9-11 yet chose to cover it up”

Preceding from too many ‘alternative news’ sources to count.

Actually the 28 pages distract from the fact (among other facts) Dick Cheney rolled out the red carpet for 9/11 to occur. The ’28 pages’ release in a limited context (the larger picture still concealed) points to a PSYOP and the Doug Coe cult is likely behind this PSYOP as the 9/11 narrative has been unraveling in the public psyche. It follows, the 28 pages release is an attempt to stuff the 9/11 genie into a different bottle. What’s certain is (the Robert Gates-Bandar bin Sultan/CIA-Saudi intelligence joint venture) al-Qaida was a minor actor, patsy and cover story, and was not primarily responsible for 9/11. There are several possible scenarios.

Recalling Robert McFarlane, Ronald Reagan’s National Security Adviser, had been working for Israeli intelligence (source Ari Ben Menache), there is practically no position in American government cannot be construed to be at risk of penetration and compromise by MOSSAD via AIPAC. How this might play in the events of 9/11 is open to conjecture; Ariel Sharon, the Israeli prime minister on 9/11, was a man possessed of the necessary character to murder three thousand people in a gambit to get the USA to fight Israel’s wars, this much is clear. Whether MOSSAD had co-opted enough key people in the USA security apparatus to bring it off, is not.

At odds with the Israelis’ initiating the attacks is the fact of Dick Cheney ordering the New York area air defense shut down for the morning of 11 September, while a ‘coincidental’ exercise was to be run simulating a ‘terrorist attack’ with jet liners crashing into New York sky-scrapers. Could Cheney’s team all have been Israeli assets? It seems unlikely. On the other hand, it is classic Israeli style to use their enemies, wherever possible, to take care of their most dirty work. And America is LIKUD’s enemy in a cold political calculation. Related to this, however MOSSAD and Saudi intelligence might cooperate in common geopolitical interests, most certainly Israel and Saudi Arabia are not friends. Utilizing al-Qaida as a front to initiate the attacks, or utilizing Saudis as patsies for a false-flag ‘terrorist’ attack, either one, is consistent with Israeli style; in the past MOSSAD has laundered operations through the PLO for purpose of everything from terrorism for propaganda purposes, to political murders.

A related possibility is the Israelis duping the USA’s people into assisting with their operation. The Israelis may have/had the necessary access and certainly the motivation; whereas the Americans have repeatedly demonstrated they are guilty of that particular brand of hubris that is blinding.

Another possible scenario is the USA’s geopolitical intelligence engineers having penetrated an Israeli operation and opened doors for the 9/11 actors, basically rolling out the red carpet for an Israeli run operation, unbeknownst to the Israelis, a covert co-option if you will.

There is also a strong possibility of a joint venture.

The strongest possibility is the Bush criminal syndicate is responsible for 9/11, taking care to frame the Saudis and Israelis in case the operation were to unravel. This most likely possibility (in this investigators mind) points to the apocalyptic Doug Coe cult, encompassing both the Bush regime’s ‘spirituality’ and Hillary Clinton’s ‘faith’, and the power elite associated with the so-called ‘National Prayer Breakfast’ as behind 9/11.

In any of these hypothesis, Rudy Guiliani having located his disaster headquarters in WTC Building 7 (with Dick Cheney in overall commannd on the day of the attacks), brought down with a controlled demolition on the afternoon of 9/11, is key.

Per the National Prayer Breakfast per se:

“The Family describes itself as an invisible association. Ronald Regan [sic] said, when asked about the Family: “I wish I could say more about it, but it’s working precisely because it is private.”

“Publically, the Family meets at the well-known National Prayer Breakfast where oil executives, defense contractors, insurance corporations and the banking industry come together with members of Capital Hill under the guise of having muffins and saying a few prayers to Christ. In this way, the influence of the Family can be kept secret while they are effecting political diplomacy and given access to our US government reserved for elected officials.

“In a mission statement, the Family asserts: We desire to see a leadership led by God. Leaders of all levels of society who direct projects as they are led by the spirit.” Political leaders should be advancing God’s kingdom. The use of prayer groups, or cells, having met at the Department of Defense and the Pentagon are facilitated by the Family to keep strong spiritual ties to the oil, defense and aerospace industries”

Insofar as responsibility & accountability, there is none. These Family agencies or actors, having penetrated the Pentagon

… and responsible for violence across the world, would have access to tactical nuclear weapons or ‘suitcase nukes’ for purpose of false-flag terrorism, were it to come to the likes of a Hillary Clinton determined to up the ante, as opposed to face accountability:

“Doug Coe is a unique presence in Washington: a genuinely loving spiritual mentor and guide to anyone, regardless of party or faith, who wants to deepen his or her relationship with God” -Hillary Clinton

“You know Jesus said ‘You got to put Him before mother-father-brother sister? Hitler, Lenin, Mao, that’s what they taught the kids. Mao even had the kids killing their own mother and father. But it wasn’t murder. It was for building the new nation. The new kingdom” -Doug Coe

“Clinton fell in with The Family in 1993, when she joined a Bible study group composed of wives of conservative leaders like Jack Kemp and James Baker. When she ascended to the Senate, she was promoted to what [author Jeff] Sharlet calls the Family’s “most elite cell,” the weekly Senate Prayer Breakfast” -blurb on Clinton & Coe at Stinque:

Clinton_Coe

In the Senate alone, other than former Senator Hillary Clinton, Doug Coe cult associates have included (but are not limited to) past and present US Senators Strom Thurmond, Mark Pryor, Mark Hatfield, John Ensign, Tom  Coburn, Sam Brownback, Charles Grassley, Jim DeMint, Lindsey Graham, Conrad Burns, James Inhofe, John Thune, Pete Domenici, Bill Nelson, Don Nickles, Mike Enzi, Rick Santorum, John Kerry and Al Gore (Gore is on record stating Doug Coe “is my personal hero.”)

Other notable persons who’ve been under the ‘guidance’ of Doug Coe have been Watergate felon Charles W. Colson, past Chief Justice William Rehnquist, Ronald Reagan’s Attorney General Ed Meese, Ronald Reagan himself, George H.W. Bush (Bush Senior), Bush Sr’s Secretary of State James Baker, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush’s Attorney General John Ashcroft, and George W. Bush.

Doug Coe: “Most of my friends are bad people”

Doug Coe’s ‘international bad friends’ have included (but are not limited to) “the most corrupt leader in modern history” (Transparency International) and mass murderer Suharto (Indonesia), CIA sponsored war criminal Gustavo Álvarez Martínez (Honduras), CIA ‘dirty wars’ mass torturer and murderer General Carlos Eugenios Vides Casanova (El Salvador), extrajudicial killer, kidnapper and torturer Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo (Equatorial Guinea), indicted war criminal Omar al-Bashir (Sudan), child soldier commander Joseph Kabila (Congo), Pentagon trained war criminal Paul Kagame (Rwanda), Kagame ally and child soldier employer Yoweri Museveni (Uganda)  and killer par excellence Mohamed Siad Barre whom Coe facilitated (together with Charles Grassley) receiving the American weaponry Barre used to ‘wreak a biblical terror on his own nation’ (Somalia, which has never recovered.) To name a few.

Doug Coe: “We work with power where we can and build new power where we can’t”

Question: “What are the connections between the CIA and the Fellowship?” [i.e. the Doug Coe cult, a.k.a. ‘The Family’]

Answer: “A lot of their key men in a country would be the intelligence officers in the American embassy. Throughout their correspondence, that’s the kind of guy they would like to have involved. [And] They always had a lot of Army intelligence guys involved, Pentagon guys”

George W Bush: I would … like to single out Doug Coe, who has been such a guiding light in all of this
