To be (treasonous to globalism) or not to be (treasonous to one’s own culture.) That is the question.

The proposition as presented, in a play on Shakespeare’s words, thinly conceals a communications trick; these are not distinct things but the same. There is no question between the two in any sense of what is actually presented, only observation of a single fact from separate construction-perspective.

Multiculturalism in a sense of globalism, historically speaking, is a result of conquest via imperialism. The short example given would be Rome and the ‘Romance Languages’ reflecting Rome’s creation of a linguistic monoculture that, over time, devolved into Italian, Romanian, Catalan, Spanish, Portuguese and French being the most spoken, and sharing Catholicism excepting Romania, which is largely Orthodox due to its geographic location and history tied to what became the Eastern Roman Empire. In every geographic case, the original languages are displaced, marginalized or extinct (including in Italy, e.g. Etruscan), together with the original cultures and religions.

At first glance, this might seem a surprising result. How did many cultures become what amounts to a monoculture? How did many languages and cultures succumb to a single language and culture that became a new family of (closely related) languages and cultures?

It is as simple as Latin became the language one had to become fluent in, to competently function within the intra-empire structures as a whole. Did this happen overnight? No. But it finally DID happen; to function as a Gaul from what became France, demanded a working use of Latin when opportunity afforded (or Rome demanded) one live and work in Iberia in what became Spain, no different to peoples of the several Iberian tribes had to master Latin to function in the economy of the globalism of that era. Over time, everyone became ‘Romanized’ in a new, Christianized, monoculture. The Roman empire’s multiculturalism, then, had melded into a new monoculture and Europe lost an incalculable amount of cultural diversity, including the extinction of many languages.

Modern globalism not only points to a repeat of this social phenomenon of multiculturalism leading to cultural extinctions and a new monoculture; but threatens an accelerated process in the age of the so-called ‘world-wide-web.’

It was Cicily Isabel Fairfield astutely asserted:

“There is not the smallest reason for confounding nationalism, which is the desire of a people to be itself, with imperialism, which is the desire of a people to prevent other peoples from being themselves

What is Fairfield disentangling here? The quote is contextualized in the events leading up to, and the beginning of, World War Two, and Nazi Germany’s invasions of multiple European states. In Fairfield’s understanding, the French resistance, particularly, would be more properly defined as ‘nationalist’ (patriot), as opposed to their German occupiers, which should be more properly defined ‘imperialist.’ In the throes leading up to the war, during the propaganda events of the war itself, and especially aftermath of WWII, this German imperialism, in an etymology turned on its head, for the simple fact the Germans labeled themselves “National Socialists”, inculcated a weaponized use of the term ‘nationalist’ & ‘nationalism’ but in fact this is a perverted use of a word that should indistinguishable from patriotism.

To drive home the point, a healthy nationalism should be indistinguishable from patriotism, inclusive of, and historically tolerant of, national minorities. On the other hand, malignant nationalism (narcissistic nationalism) can be result of social mutation of a populace under pressures that threaten their culture and/or a secure sense of well being. The Germans radically experienced this transformation, following  World War One due to economic factors aggravated by the punitive terms incorporated into the Treaty of Versailles. Due to larger Western Europe’s imperial history & mentality (a legacy of Rome & Catholicism among other historical factors & actors), Germany’s ‘rebirth’ following on multiple Prussian incarnations (and let’s not forget the ethnic German Habsberg dynasty) saw malignant nationalism inevitably expressed in imperialism. Old habits die hard. Healthy conservatism or a patriotic nationalism should not be confounded with a malignant or narcissistic nationalism, particularly the malignant nationalism which becomes entangled with imperialism.

As well, today’s upsetting the demographic stability with a large influx of people with radically different cultural view can cause a healthy nationalism to morph into a localized malignant nationalism that sees tolerance erode and even vanish as social tensions rise; for instance in those many cases of large suburban areas of Europe (examples given: Stockholm, Brussels, Paris, Berlin) where radical application of Sharia law de facto rules entire neighborhoods in contravention of the host nation’s nominally required secular law. It is this erosion of authority threatens traditional, indigenous conservatism and mutates a previously more relaxed social tolerance into a social survival, instinct driven, intolerance.

In this 21st Century variation of nationalism (patriotism) pressured into becoming malignant nationalism, postmodern liberals accuse the social conservatives in this initial phase of stresses of being “Nationalist” in a weaponized sense of the word that is disingenuous. In actuality, it is the liberals are contributing towards a future & growing ‘malignancy’ with a refusal to defend their own cultural origins that reflexively demands ‘tolerance’ of what amounts to the de facto overthrow of a culture’s rule of law based order. In today’s world, it is the European mentality’s ‘liberals’ thinly concealed imperial ambitions are both; the midwife and the driver radicalizing European societies. NATO states are the imperial force creating large, displaced populations (examples given would be Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria & Ukraine, and some sub-Sahara Africa countries) and European Union policy demands absorbing millions of these (mostly) radically different cultures’ populace; with any individual EU nations’ resistance suppressed.

Victor Orban’s problem, then, isn’t only the European Union’s demand Hungary ‘integrate’ a large, culturally alien populace into a European, formerly Sufi, Muslim community being aggressively proselytized by Saudi sponsored radical, fundamentalist Wahhabism, but his problem is also the imperial ambitions of NATO. If NATO armies amount to an Imperial Rome’s 21st Century Legions, the European Union is new Imperial Rome’s administrative apparatus. Orban’s problem is, Hungary belongs to both; the legions effect and the administrative apparatus consequence, are part and parcel of the one arrangement of a new empire. Strictly speaking, any distinguishing between NATO and the EU is splitting hairs; these are not merely fraternal organizations as much as they are fully co-joined Siamese twins.

It follows, European democratic secularism, and those in Orban’s circumstance must face this, demonstrates it is little more than theoretical abstract; its supposed Greek derived, ‘enlightenment’ inspired, democratic traditions in actuality more resemble Gaius Julius Caesar’s envy over the military conquests legacy belonging to Alexander III of Macedon.

A Post-Modern Hybrid of German Imperialism & English Language

If this new Imperial Rome’s Senate is in Strasbourg, and the Imperial Legions’ headquarters are located at Brussels, the Emperor’s residence is in Berlin. Having aggressively expanded in recent decades, while projecting its own behaviors on Russia as though it believed that nation were the new Carthage, we can shortly examine Western Europe’s present imperial expansion in the Western Balkans to assess in a microcosm, the repeat of history at the macro-cosmic level.

As put forward in the essay Education & Espionage, an intelligence assessment of German intelligence agency, Bundesnachrichtendienst, conforming/subverting Serbian academia to the ‘liberal’ political stance via Germany’s Christian Democratic Union associated Konrad Adenauer Siftung at Belgrade, it is not a reach to tie this to the policy position of Ursula von der Leyen; a longtime CDU government minister moved on to EU Commission President concerning the Serbia-Kosovo so-called “Peace Highway”

“”Truly an unbelievable thing, it connects with Austria and Greece and this is truly a motor for the Serbian economy, trade and investment. This is an economic plan that is already functioning in Serbia and we truly are connecting Europe,” she said, adding that the majority of youth in Serbia deserved a greener, prosperous and digital future”

Yes, perhaps, so long as the New Rome keeps an Imperial Legion (NATO’s KFOR) in place to insinuate this infrastructure facilitates the rapid movement of modern armor (tanks, howitzers, personnel carriers) were Serbia to attempt reasserting sovereignty over the occupied Serbian majority territory in the north of Kosovo. On top of this, Saudi & Turkish funded missionary/proselytizing allowed to run amok in Kosovo are seeing the moderate Islam of the original Kosovar Muslims displaced by the aggressive & radical Wahhabism. This is no highway to peace. Oh, and about that ‘digital’ future for the youth; the world-wide-web is dominated by English, EU parliamentarians, to cross ethnic boundaries, speak in English, academics from across Europe’s national  boundaries communicate in English, the many ‘international’ schools made available to today’s youth instruct in English, and international economics & business relations across Europe are conducted in English. English is the new Imperial Rome’s & future monoculture language that should see Serbian and other languages begin to vanish in not so distant future.

Then, the German Christian Democratic Union’s ‘sister’ party, Bavaria’s Christian Social Union (Bavaria was the least ‘denazified’ German state) gifts the Balkans with the extra-judicially appointed (in violation of the Dayton Accords because he is not confirmed by the UN Security Council) High Representative for Bosnia Christian Schmidt:

“[Republika Srpska’s] Presidency member Milorad Dodik’s announcement that he will talk about the peaceful disintegration of the country, as he has now begun to announce, to disband the army and have an old Republika Srpska army. I think this is the time to make it clear that the international community is not bound to get into the situations we just got into in the 1990s. There is no peaceful dissolution”

Schmidt’s language concerning the Republika Srpska is disingenuous in multiple instance; there was no use of the language “Disintegration” (Schmidt’s hyperbole), there was no language concerning “disbanding” the Bosnian army but rather having the Bosnian army depart Republika Srpska’s territory with demand any Serbian members of that military force choosing to stay with it, should depart with it; and finally, “there is no peaceful dissolution” would appear a thinly veiled threat to return the new Imperial Rome’s legions to deter the Republika Srpska’s international law founded “right to self-determination of peoples.” In fact Republika Srpska’s claim to a right of self determination, the basis underlying Milorad Dodik’s “peaceful withdrawal” announcement, is chartered in United Nations treaty law; Republika Srpska is a recognized ethnic majority political entity and therefore is entitled to exercise a right of self-determination via plebiscite. The Imperial residence at Berlin’s problem with this is, international law affords avenue to Republika Srpska’s national sovereignty and this national sovereignty is at odds with the purpose of empire. All in all, Schmidt is demonstrably a liar; there is no expressed intention in the Republika Srpska’s position to return to the violence of the 1990s, rather this threat of violence is the new Rome’s Imperial threat projected onto Republika Srpska.

Another ‘envoy’ parroting the Emperor’s residence at Berlin would be Viola von Cramon, the European Parliament’s Rapporteur for the Western Balkans, poking the European Union’s (in effect, Germany’s) nose where it clearly doesn’t belong:

”[Republika Srpska’s expressing a right to self-determination] is simply unacceptable and jeopardises all the progress that has been made in the post-war period. Bosnia and Herzegovina is still very fragile, yet complex, and we are closely monitoring the situation there, seeking a strong European response, i.e., sanctions for all those who undermine the country’s sovereignty, strengthen EUFOR on the ground and stop Croatia and Serbia from interfering in internal affairs of Bosnia and Herzegovina”

What a mouthful of faux concern and threats from the German noble whose Heinrich Böll Siftung in Belgrade, mirrors the German intelligence agency habits of the Konrad Adenauer Siftung in Belgrade the reader will discover in the related essay “Education & Espionage.”

If one were to allow the ethnic Croat region to join Croatia (peacefully) and allow the ethnic Serb region to join Serbia (peacefully), there would far less opportunity for resurgence of malignant nationalism and conflict of the former time, only a remaining Bosniak entity that had welcomed al Qaida jihadis during the 90’s Balkans wars and since has exported home-grown jihadis across the several empire middle East conflicts. Whoa! The new Rome won’t want that exposed to any international microscope!! (noting France has exported by far more.) A resultant Muslim Bosniak state (presumably a moderate one) would have 3 times the population of Montenegro but this sort of ‘inclusiveness’ isn’t a welcome entity in the present Imperial design. Rather the new Rome’s brat-cum-post-modern-Teutonic-tribal-politics ‘nobility’, von Cramon, would prefer NATO’s legions be returned to Bosnia under cover of EUFOR, perpetrating an artificial multicultural state simmering with unresolved ethnic tensions.

At the end of the day, this new Rome should point to something altogether different to diversity in regards to the propaganda versus the reality; it should be exposed the new Imperial design incorporates all of the elements indicating reprise of the old Rome’s devolution are in place. It’s all there: the Imperial structures, the factors pointing to a future crumbling from within, and a developing linguistic monoculture destined to displace & drive to future extinction much of the cultural diversity the European Union so famously claims it treasures.

It is the co-joined twins European Union/NATO’s imperialism presently creates manifold cases of malignant nationalism and thusly upsets the peace of nations and perverts national patriotism, which should ultimately point to this new Rome’s own demise. This is not a fiction’s play, nevertheless, these staged actors cannot be believed even as they believe themselves.

“The idea of becoming “NSA-proof” is just silly. If they want it, they can get it” Joseph Lorenzo Hall

“I’m going to slip up and they’re going to hack me. It’s going to happen” Edward Snowden

All the encryption in the world isn’t going to protect, example given, a computer with a NSA, GCHQ, Unit 8200 or other intelligence agency’s undetectable keylog trojan, trust me. But first, a bit of my story and then onto how (not, actually) to leak:

When I’d exited the U.S. Army in April, 1976, I held a top secret clearance. The only documents I had taken with me were a complete record of my military 201 file. I also had (since) acquired copies of my veterans and social security files. How I’d managed copies of these are a secret, along the lines of Benjamin Franklin’s ‘three people can keep a secret if two of them are dead.’ In this regard, it is worth mentioning I have held information between my ears that has never been spoken of in presence of mobile device, let alone entered into a computer or sent via any email.

Ok, so I can tell how I acquired the social security file, the social security administration fucked up and mailed me my own file. Yes, the original, which I went through with what certain people might have assumed would be great satisfaction, as supposedly I realized I was the censor who’d decide what I could see in my file. Of course I redacted or with-held nothing in my self exam, prior to sending the file on to my attorney who notified the social security administration we were (supposedly) inadvertently in possession of the file and to who should we send it to? A lady at the administration, in subsequent conversation, commented to myself something along the lines of ‘NO ONE has had the access to their file that you have had…’

But in fact this social security business was patent bs. Almost certainly the file had been deliberately sent my way, stripped of certain records (they missed pulling one critical document pointing to this), to throw me off the trail of then senators Max Baucus and Conrad Burns who both were complicit in covering up crimes at United States Forest Service offices in Montana on environmental issues, and suspects in regards to my file having been sequestered for months at the Social Security offices in Maryland while it was investigated whether I could be charged with fraud. Why? The USA appears to have left no stone unturned in efforts to take myself out of the public circulation due to my anti-corruption work of that era (1990s.) Apart from this, it was about this time I’d produced copies of records from my VA (military veteran) file after certain originals had gone missing following an ‘expert’ sent from Washington to Helena (Montana, where my VA file was kept) to ‘review’ files, kept me from charges of fraud relating to my veteran’s disability pension.

This (failed) ‘deep state’ caper in regards to attempt at trumping up felony charges intended to send me to jail and end my work, follows typical false flag spy-craft model. The people hearing the case, had it been successfully pursued, would have been innocents looking at a record they could not know (or believe) had been tampered with, to secure a conviction. My having copies of my VA file documents, saved my butt. I produced the necessary copy of a critical document at the initial hearing and the case was dismissed on the spot.

It wasn’t until I’d dug into the USA’s funding of charter schools as cover for intelligence embeds, the agencies had begun playing hardball or, that is to say, devoted resources to taking me out physically (assassination.)

Prior to this, during my stint with Special Forces, I’d the best possible education in operations and intelligence because it was not school, but OJT (on-the-job-training) with veterans of operations coordinated with CIA in Indochina and Central America. This was the best (or worst, depending on one’s perspective) avenue to knowledge in the ‘game’ of international intrigue; it was unrestricted, first hand knowledge of the dirty aspect of the business on the ground, where the intrigues hatched by criminal minds at Langley, Virginia, are played out.  Suffice it to say, I departed Special Forces with a remarkable understanding of how underhanded the game of spies is played, the paramount importance of employing psychology to one’s advantage (in often devious ways), and the imperative necessity of the death of one’s conscience to be successful and survive. Having only learned about, not employed these nefarious skills, I took my conscience and ethics, intact, with me on departure, together with the remarkable tool kit I’d developed through this experience, in subsequent work as investigator. My favorite of these skills had been open source analysis, in fact in light of the avalanche of criticisms since the Snowden revelations, it has been pointed out CIA open source analysis has been more effective, by far, than any NSA program, in relation to spy-craft.

Now, applying old school spy-craft, to the point of this essay; how NOT to leak-

Since WikiLeaks had been locked out of its own leak platform we’ve had ‘OpenLeaks‘ (a flop) and since we’ve had the deceptive & falsely named, pandering to fools, so-called ‘SecureDrop‘ (remember Reality Winner?)

However ‘SecureDrop’ might have been well intended, I wouldn’t touch it with the proverbial ten-foot pole. What’s more is, I doubt you’d even need it, if you wished to leak. I’ll go into the why you wouldn’t need it first, and then why I wouldn’t touch it.

If you wished to have a secure platform to leak documented criminal activities from, as opposed to a supposedly ‘secure’ online platform to leak to, you should be able to build one yourself. And you shouldn’t need to be a computer guru to do it. The recipe is exceedingly simple:

Acquire a laptop that cannot be traced to you, from a yard sale in an unfamiliar neighborhood, example given. Park your car away from where you make the purchase. I don’t advise stealing a machine, but that’d work if you’re a competent thief and don’t leave a trail. We know the NSA has arranged to implant computers with bugged software, actual hardware in some cases, and we want a computer that it doesn’t matter if it ‘calls home’ (NSA) when certain red flags might be triggered by materials you might be handling, so onto the next paragraph.

Now, before you even fire the machine up for the first time, you kill the web-cam, a piece of paper taped over it will do just fine. And you disable the microphone and speaker with dummy jacks cut from discarded actual microphones and speakers and epoxy them in place, just to make certain they stay there. Carefully cut them off where the plug extends from the jack, so they are not obvious. Now your ‘leak platform’ is externally blind, deaf and dumb. Shut off bluetooth and search the machine for any GPS integrated software programs and disable them prior to logging on to the internet. DO NOT log into internet from your home.

Now, as to what you might be leaking, consider whether it will be tracked to you on the back-end (source.) Be assured in some environments there will be efforts to do certain things, like identify a computer that had items downloaded onto a memory stick. How will you get these materials safely into the machine you intend to leak from? Old fashioned spy-craft is something to consider, if you do not feel secure in the environment whose security you are breaching. Digital photos of actual documents can be loaded into the computer or paper documents can be scanned into your ‘leak platform’ (in which case you will want an older, untraceable scanner as well.) Use a digital camera that cannot be traced to you. You NEVER want to mail by post any documents, because certain addresses will be flagged by intelligence agencies and your package could be intercepted and might give up fingerprints and/or DNA and other information, such as a the postmark information needed to review security footage at specific locations on certain dates. Also, you’ll want clean paper documents for a scanner (particularly) or digital camera, on account of the possibility you might inadvertently scan your own or your colleagues fingerprints (use gloves when working with any paper documents.)

Ask yourself, is the material you are considering making public, of a demonstrable criminal nature? Or, does it shock the conscience in a sense of egregious violating principles of ethics? COVER YOUR ASS, BECAUSE NO MATTER THE PRECAUTIONS TAKEN, YOU MIGHT GET CAUGHT. Public opinion might save your butt, but don’t count on it, it hasn’t worked for many (if any in recent times.)

Remind yourself, there has been a dearth of leakers that have gone undetected. Has it ever crossed your mind why there has been no ‘deep throat‘ in our present era, and why it seems nearly everyone gets busted? As well, our Federalist Society majority on the USA’s ‘deep state’ owned (corporate board controlled) Supreme Court refused first amendment free press protection to journalism in the case of James Risen in a leaks case. They’ll be after you with everything at the system’s disposal and your chances are not good if you are detected at any level.

Now, you’ve decided, as a patriot, your leak is worth your liberty and/or life and you’ve convinced yourself you’ve stolen the material you wish  to leak without getting caught (let’s hope you’re right) and it’s time to deliver to the journalists, undetected. Perhaps you’d wish to wait three or six months, after you’ve gotten away with the initial theft, it’d be nice if the trail grows cold. Now, your documents are loaded into file that is easy to access, for instance located on the desktop. The email addresses you wish to send the information to are handy. Now, your platform, ‘Dr Leakey’ (named for the archaeologist), is ready. You are in familiar turf (if you are confident), or you have traveled to unfamiliar territory (if you have nerves of steel.) What you need is an open wireless signal you can log onto. When you’ve found this at a cafe or a truckstop or simply a careless person in any neighborhood with unlocked wireless where you can log in from, sitting in your car parked close by (beware of cctv), log on. Create a faked email account (that you will never use again.) Send a first mail (BCC to recipients) to yourself, explaining there is a second mail following with attachments and stating if the recipient does not see the second mail, to look in their spam folder. This mail should pop up and you see it with no failed addresses (from the BCC to the people you are mailing.) Seeing you have a working address on both ends (i.e. functioning mail accounts) and are you still determined to do this, ask yourself, for real? Deep breath, new mail addressed, attached file(s), hit send, have coffee, read the paper, look at ease, normal, belonging in your environment while the what might seem like ages in time pass as the file uploads from the computer and finally the mail goes ‘whoosh’ (in your mind) and the leak is done.

Calmly go on about your day and know how you will be disposing of Dr Leakey. You used him for this one project and will never use him again. Example given, pull out the ram, hard drive goes to the incinerator (an all night campfire will do), break the screen as though Dr Leakey had been accidentally dropped & parts salvaged, and the carcass destination ends in a dumpster (leave no fingerprints.) Same fate for either the digital camera or scanner, if you used these. Be patient for results in the news. You’ve just dropped a bomb from the unseen world and any journalist worth your while, will take time to try and authenticate the information you’ve provided. If they blow it off and never pursue the lead, maybe the gods actually love you. If you’ve gotten away with it, resist temptation to ever do it again. There might be such thing as a charmed life, but it’s probably not yours.

By now, the NSA with its billions of mails to look through, will come up with (at most) someone sent a mail from an account used ONCE, from an computer they never see log in again, over some unsecured random wireless signal in the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area, example given. Maybe you live in this area of 13 million people or maybe you don’t. This is because you left little in the way of digital fingerprints by finding a way around taking your leak out on a memory stick. Enjoy a quiet laugh and hope you were good enough getting the material out the back-end, with a cold or faint trail, because if you did it right,  they can’t track you from that end. And then erase your personal memory, the one between your ears, because you never wish to tell ANYONE, who you are, in relation to what you’ve done. Meanwhile, study technique along the lines set out by a former FBI agent in the article ‘Spy Craft for Hacks‘ but even there the deck is stacked against you with an ‘agency friendly’, very serious lie by omission; don’t ever have your cell phone (or any mobile device) along on what would then become a misadventure. You’ll need cold nerves, excellent understanding of the environment and good luck, to pull it off. Nothing suffices for this like training and even then, there is no absolute way of doing these things undetected. Luck and competence on your own part and that of your adversaries play into this as well.

Now, to why you probably don’t actually want or need to leak. Firstly, we know it is no longer a conspiracy ‘theory’ (rather conspiracy fact) the USA’s security state is behaving like nazis in relation to surveillance of its own people. We know it’s likely the corporate ‘deep state’ co-opted congress, president and courts are doing little and will do little or nothing to actually change this behavior of the MILITARY elements in control of the runaway NSA, other than at most, wring their hands for public consumption. You don’t need much more knowledge to effect change, if change is going to happen. And if change isn’t happening, what’s the point? If our society’s leading lights are merely content (at most) to shout and stamp their feet like spoiled children at what is going on, rather than shut down ‘business as usual’ along the lines of refusing this criminal hydra legitimacy and attending power, and you don’t see the tectonic plate shift in public outrage necessary to force the issue, there really is no point, people have been cowed into obedience along the lines predicted by both Orwell & Huxley. On the one hand you have Orwell’s conservative sheep bleating on behalf of the ‘security’ state over the terror propaganda all of our western world has been fed. On the other hand you have Huxley’s ‘it’s all about me’ MTV generation could care less about civil liberties beyond freedom to consume, extreme sport, sex, fashion and media ego. With corporate media feeding a public with an education one mile wide and one quarter inch deep (1.6 kilometers wide & 1/2 centimeter deep), the Billy Grahams and Hollywood (our two primary oracles of ‘god’) rule a society which has cannot be saved from itself, because you cannot get the majority’s attention long enough to explain a few sensible things that might change their focus, if not their beliefs, whether puritan or hedonistic. This reflects social engineering via media information operations.

Stepping into/out of this world in relation to spies and leaking is a very dangerous proposition for the untrained. Now is time to work with what we know, not obsess with pursing endless soap operas concerning information on criminals you exercise no real control over. And there is a reason intelligence will want you obsessing (keep reading.)

What can be clearly inferred from open source analysis is, our civil structures have become criminal, out of control, one could go so far as to simply state ‘insane.’ And this is what is distracted from, when obsessed with being outraged at the western democracies ‘voyeurism’ in relation to ‘the people’ who supposedly are in control of our future direction via the principle of ‘consent of the governed.’ The propagandists at the several corporate board controlled intelligence agencies, via co-opted western media, will work to guide and exploit this national tantrum to a (hopefully) calmed down child at the end of the day.

As to the ongoing criminal agendas, one only need look at Chevron (example given) as a corporate gangster poster child and how they’ve managed to buy congress and the courts via Federalist Society owned justices at the top, along the lines of ‘citizens united.’ As for the out of control, one only need look at how ineffective congressional oversight has been, and is presently, in regards to NSA, example given, and there is no change in sight. As for the insane, one only need look at the USA, and it’s lapdog western democracies, pushing Russia to the brink with geo-political capers recently best illustrated in Ukraine, and how western media lies to the public about what is actually going on. Left unchecked, this insanity will certainly lead to VERY BAD subsequent events.

Now, to alternative media and the so-called ‘progressive’ movement, here’s why I wouldn’t touch any online platform, despite examples such as the ‘indomitable’ Guardian subscribe to ‘SecureDrop.’

To begin with, directing leaks to electronics communications platforms is playing to the NSA’s strong point, this area of expertise is SIGINT (signals intelligence), the NSA forte. No matter the encryption expertise involved in any platform’s construction, it is an invitation to play in the lion’s den. Be assured, the NSA (not to mention GCHQ and other intelligence agencies) will assign crack teams to SecureDrop (if ‘securedrop’ were not actually designed by these.)

The Guardian (newspaper) is an organization that would be very deliberately targeted by HUMINT (human intelligence) as a matter of fact. Organizations wishing to penetrate, spy, shape dialogue & policy within the Guardian would include MOSSAD, CIA, DGSE (France) and the British intelligence agencies. Each of these agencies will have a vested interest in covert penetration of the Guardian on account of that paper not having been (yet) entirely monopolized by any one of the Western intelligence agencies (which squabble & compete among themselves.) Anything, were it sent through the pretense of a so-called secure system, is at risk of exposure to clandestine a rabbit warren designed by spies within the Guardian organization. Trust me, they’re there. MOSSAD particularly, would be interested in any information it could potentially acquire, as ‘chits’ to trade to the USA (and other nations) for political favors, as its political currency continues in steady decline over West Bank issues. Just because you possibly managed a ‘secure’ leak (in your dreams) over the SecureDrop system, does not mean you are secure, not by a long shot, because you cannot know how the material might be compromised after it has been put through, let alone whether the system itself is penetrated/designed to identify the source point of the upload and MOSSAD trades YOU in a quid pro quo with another agency.

And now to the odious (closing) aspect of this essay.

“You can imagine my surprise when I read the June 13, 1971, issue of the Sunday New York Times and saw there among the “Pentagon Papers” a number of basic information papers that had been in my own files in the Joint Chiefs of Staff area of the Pentagon. Most of the papers of that period had been source documents from which I had prepared dozens — even hundreds — of briefings, for all kinds of projects, to be given to top Pentagon officers. Not only had many of those papers been in my files, but I had either written many of them myself or had written certain of the source documents used by the men who did.

“Many people have been so concerned about what has been happening to our Government that they have dedicated themselves to investigating and exposing its evils. Unfortunately, a number of these writers have been dupes of those cleverer than they or with sinister reasons for concealing knowledge. They have written what they thought was the truth, only to find out (if they ever did find out) that they had been fed a lot of contrived cover stories and just plain hogwash

“In the hands of Allen Dulles, “secrecy” was simply a chameleon device to be used as he saw fit and to be applied to lesser men according to his schemes. It is quite fantastic to find people like Daniel Ellsberg being charged with leaking official secrets simply because the label on the piece of paper said “TOP SECRET,” when the substance of many of the words written on those same papers was patently untrue and no more than a cover story. Except for the fact that they were official “lies”, these papers had no basis in fact, and therefore no basis to be graded TOP SECRET or any other degree of classification

“Any reader of the “Pentagon Papers” should be warned that although they were commissioned on June 17, 1967, by the Secretary of Defense as “the history of United States involvement in Vietnam from World War II [Sept 2, 1945] to the present” [1968], they are unreliable, inaccurate and marred by serious omissions. They are a contrived history, at best, even though they were written by a selected Task Force under Pentagon leadership” -Pentagon liaison to the CIA, L. Fletcher Prouty

In fact the so-called ‘Pentagon Papers’ were intended to deflect attention from the CIA and onto the military, concerning policy failures in Vietnam.

Open source analysis profiles (STRONGLY) Daniel Ellsberg as an intelligence agency officer, almost certainly CIA. What the CIA edits at wikipedia doesn’t inform of, when the public is fed

“Ellsberg served in the Pentagon from August 1964 under Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara (and, in fact, was on duty on the evening of the Gulf of Tonkin incident, reporting the incident to McNamara). He then served for two years in Vietnam working for General Edward Lansdale as a civilian in the State Department”

…is Ellsberg’s work for Edward Lansdale at Department of State has CIA information operations written all over it. One of CIA’s big tasks is information operations or social engineering via psychological manipulation of entire populations. And Ellsberg was working with one of the CIA’s true big shots in this area of intelligence expertise. The ultimate purpose of the ‘Pentagon Papers’ leak was information operations (social engineering) to shield the CIA from public accountability for the massive intelligence & related policy failures in Vietnam; by shifting public focus onto the Pentagon. The CIA was expendable and could have been disbanded. The Pentagon could not be done away with.

“That I had written parts of some of them proves that they were not genuine Pentagon papers, because my work at that time was devoted to support of the CIA” -L Fletcher Prouty

Colonel Prouty blew the whistle on the CIA & Ellsberg over 40 years ago. Colonel Prouty’s work, which has borne the test of time, is buried, meanwhile, whistle-blower ‘legend’ Ellsberg invites leakers into the SecureDrop cobra’s lair… as you actually believe the initial SecureDrop developer, Aaron Schwartz, hanged himself (and his co-developer’ ‘died’ after that.) Probably, it’s a case of, examples given, Gary Webb shot himself in the head TWICE (Superman could do that.) It’s an old model, for instance when Eli Black had stepped into longtime CIA turf at United Fruit, he was framed with an SEC investigation and a subsequently ‘depressed’ Eli broke an industrial strength skyscraper window with his briefcase and ‘jumped’ 44 floors from his office building. No-no, the CIA liaised generals at NSA won’t be allowing certain activities to move forward unimpeded. The only question with ‘SecureDrop’ is, how it has been compromised (since inception or when the source code was stolen, likely about the time Schwartz ‘hanged’ himself.)

Daniel Ellsberg has been a champion of WikiLeaks which has employed SecureDrop via tor (tor is a USA military intelligence tool.)

Ellsberg has promoted SecureDrop for Exposefacts.org.

Has it ever occurred to anyone, as to why, no one has ever outed a ‘Kim Philby‘ type character embedded in the progressive and peace movements, as though intelligence operatives would never caper within that playground? I’ll name you one. Daniel Ellsberg.

“From the beginning, the Pentagon Papers were a compilation of documents designed to paint President John F. Kennedy as the villain of the story, and to shield the role of the CIA” L Fletcher Prouty

Meanwhile, so-called ‘SecureDrop’ has been leaking the leakers identities for years.

“I have long observed one rule which prevents any inconveniences from such practices. It is simply this: to be concerned in no affairs I should blush to have made public, and to do nothing but what spies may see and welcome. When a man’s actions are just and honorable, the more they are known, the more his reputation is increased and established. If I was sure, therefore, that my valet de place was a spy, as he probably is, I think I should probably not discharge him for that, if in other respects I liked him” -Benjamin Franklin

This preceding statement concerning the infestation of 1780s Paris by spies during the American revolutionary alliance with France, attributed to the American Minister-Plenipotentiary to France, Benjamin Franklin, goes to his [Franklin’s] driving the French Foreign Minister, Charles Gravier (Count of Vergennes), out of his mind on a single point: Franklin refused to fire his valet who was known to be a British spy. Expanding on the quote (from reading history) Franklin’s attitude (and refusal to fire his valet) stemmed from his conviction that, given the British knowing that Franklin knew the man was a spy, everything the valet reported from Franklin’s conversations would be taken for disinformation.

We’ll come back to this.

Putin’s 2021 annual address to the Valdai Discussion Club struck me as showing a profoundly disillusioned man (in contrast to Putin projecting an oftentimes humorous, lively self-confidence in past.) Waxing philosophical, he seemed a man disabused of any notion he could believe in the olive branches offered in his polite habits of speech regarding the West, did not seem convinced in (his past conviction) a longstanding support for the primacy of international law will prevail, and seemed at a loss when advancing avenue to reasoned, stabilizing solutions when confronted with the malfeasance of NATO, and NATO’s rhetoric versus NATO’s actions (and much more.) His self confidence seems seriously eroded, or alternately stated, Putin seems resigned to understanding his many years proposed solutions of reason has been wasted and must inevitably be discarded in relation to the confounding behavior and intractable nature of those powers confronting Russia.

In a nutshell, his speech impressed as though Putin understood he were wasting his breath, finally accepting principled behaviors will find little reciprocity from the West in the 21st Century play of the “Great Game.”

The Great Misapprehension

Those embracing the misnomer “Cultural Marxism” will be jubilant at Putin’s comparing today’s Western values to the Soviet experiment at its formation. His characterization of this, although not without merit in defending a “healthy conservatism”, nevertheless embraces a cultural myopia; inter-generational socialization determines the shape of societies and Karl Marx’s utopian socialism had been birthed in Christian culture and features (however perverted in practice) early Christian ideal. Denuded of ‘God’, socialism carried secularism to extreme in application of Christian social principle where science was substituted for the mystic experience in humanity; if Marxism aspired to become the great enforcer of Jesus’ teaching “It would be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom” in matters of social equity, it must be stated (in short) why this experiment failed. There was no nurturing of the Human spiritual dimension. Marxism, as put into practice in the 20th Century, originated as oxymoron; a faux, inter-generational, culturally Christian shaped cult in denial of God. As a matter of fact cultures cannot easily overthrow their social origins. Marxism, and V.I. Lenin’s launching of this phenomenon on what was to become the Soviet Socialist Republics, was, culturally speaking, a Western ‘Christian’ event from inception to demise. It was, perhaps, the greatest example of denial in modern history (and in some respects, probably still is.)

Be that as it may, Putin is spot on in his defense of a “healthy” social conservatism, and despite his (probable) lack of understanding of the Western Christian cultures’ inter-generational socialization shaping Marxism, his comparison of Soviet experiment, to the one hundred years later (today’s) Western experiment, is not that far off the mark. Both are devoid of the necessary traditions feeding the need of the human spirit. What he appears to struggle with, however unaware, is the Western cultures’ spiritual necrosis originating with Calvinism, the ‘predestination’ infection inviting discarding lived morality as a rewarded experience. This is an infection which, mutated to one form or another (like a certain virus), has crossed every social boundary and buried the ‘do no harm’ axiom across the societies of Capitalism. The root at the evil Putin senses but does not (yet) fully grasp is not actually “Cultural Marxism” but is a Calvinism rooted, Western phenomenon of society-wide psychopathy.*

“I don’t know what to do”

The “I don’t know what to do” statement by Putin about the circumstance in Ukraine concerning NATO is likely the most telling remark revealing a palpable sense of helplessness. This is where one might have expected something along the lines of a ‘zero-sum’ push-back (at the least) but that’s not what we saw. While conceding NATO showed no sign of backing off a military build-up in a context of Ukrainian citizens having little to no say over the (German & American intelligence agencies installed) Bandera putsch regime opening the door to a spear-point aimed at the heart of Russia, Putin openly admits his hesitancy. His dilemma is understandable; NATO ‘all or nothing’ approach shows no inclination whatsoever to back off incorporating to itself a military development of Ukraine and the only recourse to prevent this developing threat would be to fence NATO out with resort to combat arms. This avenue would require Putin violate international law by launching what amounts to illegal ‘preemptive war’ and it is international law Putin has been trying to rescue from obliteration by NATO and NATO aligned states. His choice? Wait the “years” it will take for the Ukrainian people/state to sort putting their house in order (defaulting to the NATO military build-up) or take Eastern Ukraine to the Dnieper river based on international law’s presumptive right of the majority ethnic Russians located there to “Self-Determination.” Putin clearly does not wish to initiate the inevitable war NATO is thrusting upon Russia; but to wait “years” (even just a few years or a year or two) is to give up strategic advantage that could cost Russia dearly. With NATO states pumping arms into Ukraine, each month that passes insures any forthcoming war will be bloodier. No doubt Sergei Shoigu will have a strong opinion in regard to NATO forcing the burden of taking this decision onto Putin.

Bloody Talons

Here we’ll conclude with the too often under-examined point of taking responsibility. It is here yours truly comes closest to outright criticism of Vladimir Putin, relating to the information wars.

This point goes to the cynicism of awarding the Nobel Prize to Novaya Gazeta’s Dmitry Muratov for “defending free speech” in the context of Russia’s recent law (mirroring USA law) requiring organizations receiving funding from abroad to register as “foreign agents.” In fact Muratov’s newspaper, Novaya Gazeta, panders to the Western political lies undermining Russia and its designation as a ‘foreign agent” is absolutely well deserved. Muratov is certainly not a Russian patriot when, as editor-in-chief of Novaya Gazeta, example given, that yellow rag publishes a hit piece pushing ‘the Russians did it’ DNC hack lie. [1], [2]

Nobel Prize for political lies? The cynicism of using non governmental organizations to embed and/or recruit agents and manipulate persons, in this case Muratov, to undermine one’s own country, is certainly nothing new in the world of espionage, where there are three basic means of penetrating and/or using an organization to one’s advantage:

1) Turning an employee through some means such as blackmail, sex, bribery or appeal to a psychological weakness such as working on someone’s conscience or ideology and convince them to become your organization’s asset (agent/traitor)

2) Using psychology and/or disinformation to convince an organization’s staff to work to your advantage and/or commit acts against its own [in this case, national] interests (false flag/sale)

3) Placing your own officer within the organization as an employee (spy)

Novaya Gazeta’s editor-in-chief Muratov STRONGLY profiles as manipulated using method 2) of the preceding, although method 1) cannot be ruled out. Coming up through Russia’s security services and fully aware of these facts, when questioned by the ‘nobel laureate’, why didn’t Putin call Muratov out at Valdai? Is it because Russia has its own filthy players in the information wars? [3], [4]

Bloody Talons

 

In the embedded Valdai video, Muratov questions Putin at about 1:16:00, followed by Margarita Simonyan at about 1:28:00.

Putin should have detailed why Russia hadn’t (yet) gone far enough in shutting down the poison of Western style ‘free speech’ in the information wars; but instead he deferred to the ugliest player on his team, Russian master propagandist Margarita Simonyan. What is remarkable beyond Simoyan’s obvious lust for the rank fool Muratov’s blood is her stark familiarity in her interaction with Putin on a world stage; gloating in her sense of power. Simonyan is no patriot either, Russia’s well being is not the priority here, her argument doesn’t go to the underlying facts, isn’t well thought out & reasoned, rather her first instinct is to go for Muratov’s throat. At a meta level, the premier Russian propaganda attack dog, Simonyan, profiles as a psychopath killer.

Going to the Franklin quote that introduces this essay, Putin doesn’t only carry responsibility for keeping his personal character clean, but carries responsibility for keeping a clean character within all of Russia. Putin’s professional liar, Margarita Simoyan, makes a mockery of this. A clean house does not conceal a deadly black mold in the pantry.

 

*A warning to Russia: A single generation of children left by their parents to be raised by an unfiltered internet in the 21st Century and you could be there too; it won’t require the 400 years it took John Calvin’s social dementia to overtake and finally poison the wider Western cultures’ mentality beyond redemption. It’s a different world now.

There is a glowing review of Obama-esque ‘hope’ concerning the nomination of William ‘Bill’ Burns as the new administration’s Director of CIA. The review is plausible/improbable & outcome remains to be seen. [1]

Written by an Indian diplomat, M K Bhadrakumar, he takes an interesting quote from Burn’s book ‘The Back Channel: A Memoir of American Diplomacy and the Case for its Renewal‘ in a context of less ‘militarization’ wherein Burns asserts American diplomacy should:

“…harness all the tools of American statecraft – from the soft power of ideas, culture, and public diplomacy, to … intelligence-gathering and covert action”

As well, Bhadrakumar notes:

“Burns is widely praised as a titan of the foreign policy world and also happens to belong to that breed of diplomats who believe that diplomacy and espionage are two sides of the same coin”

One presumes the article & quotes more or less exclude CIA paramilitary operations (e.g. Syria) as a direction that should be emphasized in Burns’ philosophy as the new Director of Central Intelligence.

But, there is this other point, in case of Burn seeing diplomacy & espionage as “two side of the same coin” where in fact the CIA & USA’s Department of State are historically more like ‘Siamese twins.’ This second is a qualified point that sees things a bit differently than two sides of the same coin (public postures vs back-stabbing acts) in a matter of Siamese twins or more than one cognitive process pushing or initiating policy in fact. This is more than a typical two-faced ‘diplomacy’ coin, in a case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is up to.

Of course, as always, it will be the factual legacy Burns leaves behind him that will determine what will be and what came to naught. In this vein, it should do to examine a bit (just a bit) of Burns’ history, raise a question and propose a litmus test.

My recollection of Bill Burns in respect to Iran is a bit different to the pundits of the present; as a matter of fact Burns has been in past circumstance of having to work with some of the USA’s nastiest ‘diplomatic’ personalities and guilt by association, e.g. a murderess or the murderous Condoleezza Rice, is ‘just deserts’ in the political game. [2]

That Burns is presumably a good reporter of facts is no solid indicator his proposed philosophical outlook will be of any significance whatsoever. [3]

The question posed is, how much control over the actual function of the CIA Burns will actually possess (or even care to possess.) He will be pressed from above and below to implement criminal policies, and authorize criminal acts. His superiors are incompetent politicians steeped in aggressive geopolitical lies & greed, e.g. ‘The Russians did it’, no matter if or when the Russians did not do it & rank corporate corruption or practically unlimited “Citizens United” undisclosed PAC money and; his minions (senior CIA operatives), are quite frankly, tactically & socially stupid, not only patently treasonous, international criminals. [4]

Litmus test: when the present and two preceding FBI directors (Mueller, Comey & Wray), all of them, have shielded a narcotics cartel hit-man (serial killer), that is Enrique ‘ricky’ Prado, for the fact Prado doubled as a high ranking CIA officer-operative, does Burns stop protecting Prado, allowing prosecutions to go forward, or does Burns consider shielding Prado that part of “covert action” that is legitimate ‘statecraft’? [5]

In fact it is time someone cleaned up the CIA’s act. Will Burns do it or will he even exercise control over an agency shielding numerous rank killers, not only Prado? Does the Obama-Brennan era extra-judicial “Kill List” targeting American citizens, and the harassment, sabotaging the personal lives of, and framing of dissident Americans living abroad (a laundered, CIA version of the FBI’s COINTELPRO) cease and desist or do these mafia quid pro quo programs see new ‘life’ breathed into them? [6]

This target (yours truly) wants to know. Because as of this week, in Serbia, it is become clear the ‘dogs have not been called off.’ [7]

But maybe I should know already. The counter-point analysis that should be read, relating to Burns’ “The Back Channel”, describes a man incapable of comprehending his failures. The teaser from John Helmer:

“William Burns is the man who might have been US Secretary of State if Hillary Clinton had been elected President in November 2016. Since then he has been composing an apologia pro vita sua — a book of religious convictions describing what went wrong through no fault of his own or of God’s, explaining what a victim Burns and the United States have been of bad luck; bad timing; President Donald Trump’s “narcissism”, “erratic leadership” and “active sabotage”; and Russian malevolence

“To the ex-Ambassador to Russia and ex-Deputy Secretary of State, the Russian evil is a motiveless, psychopathological crime. Russians, especially the few high-ranking ones Burns met as a State Department apparatchik, can’t help themselves. There is no cause and effect between action and reaction, between US offence and Russian defence. Nothing Christian Brothers alumni and missionary Americans like Burns have done explains (in Burns’s tract) why the Russians behave so badly, and why their souls must forever burn in hell unless they repent. Five hundred pages of holier-than-thou, confessor to the wicked Russians — that’s been the Burns mission” [8]

“Non-cooperation with evil is as much a duty as cooperation with the good” -Mahatma Ghandi

The King turns to his Vizier and poses a question:

The European League proposes for us to join their economic alliance and adopt their money. What are the benefits versus the detractions?

The Vizier, a European League spy, was uncomfortable, certainly not able to speak freely. To escape the question he said:

Let us ask the Jester.

The Jester:

A king’s corrupt accountant raises a sum from 2,000 to 3,000 and calls this a 50% increase. Then, this same person cuts the sum of 3,000 by one half to arrive at 1,500 and this is called a 50% decrease.

But the 50% increased number can be cut 33-1/3% to arrive at the initial sum of 2,000? Suddenly, like magic, 500 has vanished? Where did it go?

A 50% increase cannot be reversed and equal a 50% decrease in this problem without a deceit, no different to altering the method where reducing 3,000 by 50% equals 1,500 and increasing the 1,500 by 50% equals 2,250; wherein to make the percentages match in actuality and keep the lie out of the numbers should require a 50% increase of 1,500 is 1,500 because the sum of 1,500 becomes precisely 50% of the 3,000.

Would not the more honest approach beg to work with the end sums (actual outcomes) only, where 2,000 can only become 3,000 by a 33-1/3 percentage increase of what had been 2,000 becoming 3,000? In this case a 50% reduction can actually amount to 1,500 without a lie.

If indeed, in practical applications, 50% should bring us to 3,000 from 1,500 but the 50% is labelled 750, arriving at 2,250, into whose pocket did the other 750 potentially vanish? Is the problem semantics only? Or does the European League’s “Transcendent Corruption” accounting math work in a manner similar to method this problem identifies when, for instance, making their fiat currency’s ‘amount in circulation’ grow and diminish or the public tax monies appear and vanish? The ‘assignment of percentage values’ in the European League’s math would appear to allow for nearly any chicanery presented to the King and his people to become a de facto ‘fait accompli’ in ‘good faith’ no matter the sum’s disposition!

The King:

Who can vouch for this?!

The Jester:

Why it is the European League’s spies, Your Majesty, as they state so clearly for you in their many reports’ disclaimer:

“Judgments are not intended to imply that we have proof that shows something to be a fact. Assessments are based on … information which is often incomplete or fragmentary, as well as logic, argumentation, and precedents”

The King:

Turns a murderous expression towards The Vizier…

^ Bellingcat, er, Bill the Cat

Navalny poses as a higher ranking ‘apparatchik’ within Russia’s security services, scrambling to understand what went wrong with the plot to murder (himself) with the nerve agent novichok. He (Navalny) ostensibly has reached one of the foot-soldiers (a Russian intelligence services officer, at his home phone) tasked with carrying out Navalny’s assassination (I would have said you can’t make this shit up except for someone clearly did.) The hoax is audacious.

The 1st problem with Navalny’s ‘hoax call’ reported by Bellingcat is the dates. The 2nd problem is Bellingcat is the reporter. Or, you can switch the order, these are co-equal problems, followed by a 3rd problem that is the call itself.

1) The poisoning happened on 20 August, the ‘hoax call’ is made on 14 December, and released by Bellingcat on 21 December. Now, wait a minute. The context of the call, a desperate demand for answers of what went wrong (Navalny didn’t die) for a report to higher up authority, is something you would expect within the first 48 hours, not nearly three months later. By the time this call was made, that dust should have settled and been vacuumed up by Russia’s intelligence services, everyone would have been debriefed by this time, including the target of the hoax call.

2) Bellingcat is an organization on the point of ‘the Russians did it’ (or the Russians should be held responsible, even if they didn’t do it) world information warfare stage from Syria chemical warfare crimes to MH17 to the Skripal poisoning to (now) Navalny (and whatever else escapes my memory at the moment.)

Every reasonably competent intelligence officer from either side of the ongoing state of warfare between the NATO & NATO associated intelligence agencies, and Russia, perfectly assumes Bellingcat is a front for British intelligence, if they are honest, which is forbidden in this case, if you work for Western intelligence (as well, the CIA might easily request a favor from MI6 and its proxy Bellingcat, time to time.) Of course, if you are Russian, it is not permitted in the liberal democracies to believe anything you have to say (whether truthful or not.)

3) The recorded call itself requires you to believe Russian intelligence officers assigned to assassinations are 85 IQ troglodytes in eternal state of drunk or hungover. That works, if you are a Robert Littell (CIA disinformation) spy novel fan or, alternatively, a 007 freak where Russian intelligence operatives, when it comes to assassinations, are so muscle-bound around the head, there is no space left for brains (having all been squeezed out by steroids, obviously.) But the propaganda ploy works for precisely the subliminal stereotype created in the Western media audience; at many levels we all are conditioned (or attempted to be conditioned) to believe the stereotypes.

At 14 minutes in, there are real questions. He’s too slow & dumb (the FSB guy) he should have been wide awake by now, this all seems scripted. Do we know it is actually the Russian officer on the other end? Rather, is it a MI6 or CIA actor? In the very early stages (long before the 14th minute), the ‘Russian’ intelligence officer should have demanded to make the call himself, calling back from a secure phone to his interrogator (after confirming with his own chain of command), at the least. I can’t believe the Russians are without strict protocol training in this regard. The so-called ‘Konstantin Kudryavtsev’ (a real person but certainly not the person in the call) is too stupid, by far, to demand this obviously important security protocol, and that stupidity is covered by the very fact of discussing ‘a secure line’ while posing him as half-awake & consequently ‘snookered.’ But even a hungover and half-awake 85 IQ (if such ever existed in the FSB, not likely) should grasp violating this protocol while running his mouth could find him hung upside down in chains in the basement of the Lubyanka (FSB Headquarters in Moscow) while his bosses decided what would become of him. This raises a related issue; why would someone who’d so famously screwed up a hit still be on the job? The entire business stinks from the beginning.

Then, at 18 minutes in, the ‘Russian’ troglodyte is volunteering via unsecured line a local investigative chief’s phone number to a ‘superior officer’ (Navalny’s alias) that prior to this call he has never even heard of:

It just goes downhill from there…

The concluding question should be, did Nalvany understand he had been talking to a Western intelligence asset/actor? The answer would be “probably not.” Narcissists are brilliant material for intelligence agency manipulations, in this case of Western intelligence engineering (from the outset) Nalvany being of greater value as an information operations asset in Berlin as opposed to a perpetually failed color revolutionary in Russia.

This book review is reproduced for my Australian readers, particularly, but is recommended for everybody. The simple fact this review is banned in Australia gives added credence to the exposé it covers; the excellent journalism of John Helmer debunking the MH-17 (state sponsored) disinformation campaign cooked up by liberal democracies in the geopolitical game demonizing Russia. Originally found at John Helmer’s site. Reproduced with permission.

By Evan Jones, Sydney
@bears_with

The MH17 was brought down over six years ago. John Helmer, with others, has compiled a book on the farce that has attended the pursuit of cause and culprits. Australia’s involvement is peculiarly both integral and marginal.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was brought down over Eastern Ukraine on 17 July 2014. All 298 people on board lost their lives – including 196 Dutch, 43 Malaysians and 38 Australian.

Overseen by the Dutch, a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) was established in August 2014, formally comprising personnel from the Netherlands. Ukraine, Australia and Belgium. Malaysia itself was not admitted to the JIT until late November, reputedly because of  its scepticism towards the Ukrainian version of the cause of the shoot-down and who was responsible.

Before anybody had inspected the site, that line was that Russia and/or pro-Russian rebels against Kiev did it. The weapon was a Buk ground-to-air missile, the launcher brought in from Russia and returned after the dirty deed.

The JIT investigation and Dutch court case is effectively a Dutch-Ukrainian affair. As Helmer et.al (henceforth Helmer) note, Ukraine possesses the  ‘right as a JIT member to veto what is investigated, what is disclosed, who to convict’ (Ch.6). Belgium  (4 nationals dead) is out of picture. Australia is both inside and outside the tent.

Site material reclaimed is partial, and evidence is spotty. Ukrainian air traffic control data have not been released. However, two forms of evidence, Australian-linked, appears to be atypically decisive, at least in a negative sense.

Helmer (Ch.6): ‘Two reports by Australian coronial investigators, David Ranson, a pathologist from the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine (VIFM) and Iain West, deputy coroner for the state of Victoria, have revealed the cause of death of the victims, ruling out shrapnel from an exploding Buk missile warhead. The first Ranson-West report, released in November 2014, [is outlined] here. A second report, eight pages in length and written by Ranson, followed a month later. This was sent to the Victorian State Coroner, Judge Ian Gray. …

‘To date, the consensus identification of the external blast source is a point to the left of the aircraft, forward of the left wing. … The record by [Dutch pathologist George] Maat’s Australian team members at [Dutch military base] Hilversum is that no Buk detonation could have taken place without filling the bodies of passengers on the left (port), forward side of the cabin, but the evidence of the bodies shows this didn’t happen.’

The Ranson report was released to victims’ families, discussed with the Australian Federal Police, and to select others. Ranson and West also spoke on the matter at the Asia-Pacific Coroners Society Conference in Melbourne on 14 November. However the material has subsequently been classified. Why?

The sister of the Malaysian MH17 pilot went to Halversum to inspect her brother’s body. She claimed that (Ch.8) ‘she had seen a film of his body and had been told by investigators there were no shrapnel or bullet wounds’. Her response was deflected in the Dutch media.

The Abbott government was in place. Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Foreign Minister Julie Bishop had a priori opinions on whodunnit (Chs.8 & 9). In early November, Abbott claimed: ‘“We were given very strong security advice [that is, from the Americans] in the days following the atrocity as to the type of weapon, as to the place from where the weapon was fired and as to the likely prominence of the weapon and there’s been nothing since then to question that original security advice.”’

Their interests ran contrary to the information that Coroner Gray had in his possession. Abbott, titular Rhodes Scholar, had trouble reconciling his will, impetuous, with the forensic evidence produced by Australian specialists.

According to former Army officer James Brown in 2016, Abbott had initially offered to send Australian troops to control the crash site. Brown is Malcolm Turnbull’s son-in-law and apparent conduit for Turnbull’s exposé of Cabinet activity. Abbott then willingly brought Australia into an American-hatched idea to send Dutch and Australian troops (of which 3,000) into Eastern Ukraine (Ch.18), with logistic support from others. Germany said it’s not on; the Dutch then said it’s unrealistic. But Abbott had the Australian military and security establishment in knots even after the potential European partners had pulled the plug.

Malcolm Turnbull became Prime Minister in September 2015, bringing his own brand of ambiguity to the fog. Turnbull promised the victims’ families action to find and prosecute those responsible, wanted to blame the Russians, yet was more circumspect than Abbott. Turnbull declined to issue certification as to the crash’s cause that would open the way for the Australian government to pay compensation to the families under the Supporting Australian Victims of Terrorism Overseas Act.

There was another source of dissidence from Australian specialists. The Dutch Safety Board, officially responsible for investigations, had quickly (with Ukrainian and American governments’ support) attributed the aircraft’s demise to a Buk missile. Yet the senior figure in the Australian contingent, the AFP’s Detective Superintendent Andrew Donoghue, urged caution. Helmer notes (Ch.14), citing Donoghue before a Victorian Coroners Court hearing 15 December 2015, ‘“initial information that the aircraft was shot down by a [Buk] surface to air missile” did not meet the Australian or international standard of evidence’.

In court, the forensic pathologist repeated conclusions contained in his late 2014 reports that no ‘distinctive pre-formed’ metal fragments had been found in the two CT scans of the Australian victim bodies.

Donoghue also noted that, courtesy of secret Australian government negotiations with Novorussian leaders, his Australian team had belatedly gained access to the crash site, in the face of Ukrainian government-enforced restrictions. Donoghue reported that some potential witnesses who had come forward refused to testify unless provided protection from Kiev reprisals.

Bizarrely, Deputy Coroner West’s judgment defied the evidence before him from Donoghue and Ranson, claiming that the Dutch Safety Board had it right in determining that a Russian Buk missile had caused the MH17’s destruction. This in spite of the fact that West’s name is attached to the first Ranson report of November 2014 which (with the second December report) notes the absence of metal fragments in the bodies that a Buk missile warhead would have produced.

In March 2017, then Attorney General George Brandis delivered to Prime Minister Turnbull advice that there remains (Helmer) ‘insufficient evidence of what and who caused the MH17 crash to meet the Australian statutory test of a terrorist act’ (Ch.21). Apart from attribution of guilt to culprits, there is the necessity to prove malicious intent.

Several days previously, the Ukrainian government (Helmer) ‘had applied to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to convict Russia of financing, arming and aiding terrorist acts, including the destruction of MH17’. Australian legal opinion thus undermined the Ukrainian government’s move, as well as the Joint Investigation Team’s renewed claim in September 2016 (Ch.18) that the Russians and the Ukrainian rebels reliant on them were responsible. The Dutch and Ukrainians aren’t listening.

Yet Turnbull continued to publicly blame Russia. On 5 March, the Sydney Morning Herald reported Turnbull, in the context of a stoush with Senator Pauline Hanson, thus:

‘But Mr Turnbull said there was no doubt Russia was involved in the 2014 “murder”. “Vladimir Putin’s Russia is subject to international sanctions, to which Australia is a part, because of his conduct in shooting down the MH17 airliner in which 38 Australians were killed. Let’s not forget that,” he said. “That was a shocking international crime. Vladimir Putin’s Russia is not, and should not be, an object of admiration in any respect.”’

Turnbull was wearing two hats – one as lawyer, the other as politician.

Part Three of Helmer’s book (‘The standard of proof’) is devoted to the Dutch prosecutor’s absence of proof. Part Four is devoted to the trial of four accused individuals – three Russians and a Ukrainian – amidst disdain for the absence of proof, involving  a travesty of Dutch law itself.

The farcical character of the proceedings has been ignored in the Australian media. The  Sydney Morning Herald (SMH) is representative.

The  SMH did report (8  March 2020) the disgust of the Russian Ambassador to Australia at the lack of evidence for the ‘official’ accusations of Russian guilt.

The  SMH also gave voice to one Jerry Skinner (27  May 2018), an American lawyer, flamboyantly seeking victim family clients to sue first Malaysia then the innately evil Russians for their murderous act. Skinner claims to have ‘helped negotiate $2.7 billion from the Libyan government to compensate families  of victims of the Lockerbie air disaster’. Given that the Libyans were not responsible for this atrocity (see Helmer’s Ch.25), Skinner’s talents are evidently remarkable. Helmer deals with Skinner and his litigious law firm in Chs.16 & 23.

The bulk of  SMH coverage of the MH17 crash and the investigatory and legal aftermath has been carried by successive London-based correspondents Nick Miller  and Bevan Shields. Miller and Shields have dutifully repeated the Western correct line without deviation.

What and who to believe? The detached Australian might ask, how could Dutch authorities be engaged in skulduggery? Aren’t the Dutch a decent and progressive people?

Well not quite. As is noted of the MH17 book’s co-author: Max van der Werff, he ‘began his career as a citizen journalist investigating the torture of civilians by the Dutch colonial administration during the Indonesian war for independence’.

As legal academic  Ramses Wessels reported  in 2008, the Netherlands opportunistically abandoned its previous neutrality in joining NATO in 1949. Wessels notes: ‘During the Cold War, the Netherlands proved  to be an active and loyal member of the Alliance, which allowed for a much larger role in international affairs than its size would justify.’ Ah, punching above their weight – where have we heard that before?

The Netherlands continues its allegiance to what has become, following the fall of the Soviet Union, a transparently criminal organisation.

As for the economy, the opportunistic Netherlands has probably been the second biggest beneficiary after Germany of the European Union and its exploitative hierarchy. Not content with its perennial trade surplus, the Netherlands has turned itself into a tax  haven at the heart of the EU (documented meticulously by Gabriel Zucman), that status becoming particularly attractive to trans-border European companies (such as Airbus and Peugeot/Fiat).

In short, predictably, the Netherlands has no principles, only interests. And thus it is with the MH17 show trial.

In the meantime, the victims’ families are treated as mere pawns in a brutal revamping of the Cold War, with the post-coup Ukraine dictating terms via the seemingly respectable Dutch court system. It is a phenomenon beneath contempt. You’ll have to read Helmer et.al because you won’t read about it in the Australian MSM.

Education & Espionage

In the EU accession process absorbing the former socialist states of Eastern Europe, there is a ‘trick chapter’ that is opened, and immediately closed, as a mere formality. This is chapter 26 concerning “Culture and Education” wherein the rationale for this chapter as a formality only is:

“the area of culture and education entails no common EU alignment criteria and thus no closing benchmarks”

Setting culture aside, at first sight it should be a curious thing there would be no European Union benchmark for some conformity or demand of a certain educational values or standard. The raison d’être behind this curious omission should no doubt surprise (or discover denial in) those most concerned with education, more often surprise in the smaller community educator and more often denial in the academics at the national political level. The short explanation for this curious absence is, if there were a European Union standard with office and liaison to those political appointments assigned to educational values within the diverse nation-state governments, this would provide a tangible target that is undesirable to the Western European agenda in its drive to conform those states to a certain perspective; whilst noting social perspectives are a large part of the currency of the several intelligence agencies professional propagandists.

This brief intelligence assessment details the invisible (to most) subversion of education in Europe’s former socialist states, by external spy agencies, primarily the Germans, in their drive to rehabilitate image & gain influence.

Civil society ‘non governmental organizations’ (NGOs) have a long history as fronts through which various forms of espionage are carried out. Typically this sort of espionage is carried out with the employ of ‘cells’ within organizations where many or even most employees of the NGO are not privy to so much as understanding there is a clandestine organization deliberately embedded within their organization.

These non-governmental organizations operating out of Western Europe are a closely interwoven tapestry where all aspects of shaping the ‘political culture’ of former socialist states are carefully crafted to receive public support in the initiating nation-states via feedback loop where ‘cultivating’ and ‘shaping’ the foreign target is not the only objective; but also propagandizing the populations of the states where the social subversion originates from is also important in relation to targeting. The model for accomplishing this is Western Christianity’s history of evangelism; bringing the ‘good news’ (gospel) to the infidel is little different in the social psychology of Western Europe to ‘reforming’ the former socialist states.

Example of this can found in the German non-governmental organization N-OST, a media concern for ‘development of democratic media in Eastern Europe’ that ties to a veritable conglomerate of spy agency fronts including the CIA’s own National Endowment for Democracy, not only the German Foreign Ministry, but also notably the Konrad Adenauer Siftung, Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union aligned political apparatus that trains and ‘rehabilitates’ the Nazi SS celebrating anti-Russian radicals who had overthrown the government of Ukraine in 2014. [1], [2]

Adding to the insulation of the spy agency’s agenda is the practice of manipulating unsuspecting employees and the targets through the practice of empathy via socialization, and related educational ‘training’ that actually is manipulating psychology to ‘shape’ people’s sympathies via what could be called a ‘soft cultivating’ of prejudice. In spy parlance, this is cultivating agents (who do not have the faintest idea of what is happening to them) via false flag ‘sales.’ The point is, when you have shaped someone’s psychology to become a vehicle for your agenda in, for instance academia, you have the perfected ‘Manchurian Candidate’, whether a professor or administrator, shaped by the NGO into a working asset for the agency.

When the foreign interest has created enough of these mentalities within the state institutions, it becomes a self-replicating social organism that takes on a life of its own and over time becomes a growing talent pool from which, example given is universities rewriting history or other objectives are accomplished. By some point in this process, if all goes to plan, much of the core leadership in education at the top of the institution’s social structure will have become a foreign tool manipulating the state’s interests.

The most insidious (and important) of these NGOs are those concerning themselves with education, particularly targeting the universities’ students, where the more intelligent, but also impressionable, youth are subjected to influence and a legal form of bribery through scholarships and educational opportunities abroad where these future ‘hand-picked elites’ will learn to serve interests exterior to, and opposed to their own, national interest. You see these programs advertised via such mission statements as have been recently available via the Konrad Adenauer Siftung (KAS.)

“We cooperate with governmental institutions, political parties, civil society organizations and handpicked elites, building strong partnerships along the way. In particular we seek to intensify political cooperation in the area of development cooperation at the national and international levels on the foundations of our objectives and values” [3]

“In order to discuss important societal issues and to put them on the political agenda the KAS organizes conferences, panel discussions and lectures. In addition, we arrange seminars, workshops and simulation games to fulfil our aims regarding political education, consulting and training”

“The KAS .. works within a tightly knit network of institutional partners. Among them are the [parliament], the Presidential administration as well as .. political party structures, NGOs, universities and think tanks” [4]

These are carefully crafted ‘false-flag’ programs wherein the future intelligentsia of the targeted nation-state are carefully conformed to the cultural perspectives desired by initiating agencies or clandestine services.

For instance the Konrad Adenauer Siftung has had an office in Belgrade since 2001. By 2020, this organization has been cultivating academics in Serbia for nearly twenty years; where the KAS protege that graduated university in 2005 is possibly a 15 years career veteran of one or another state institution, political party, university academic or administrator. These are all people who’ve had their psychology and perspective ‘shaped’ to suit the Western Europe perspective with a ‘soft prejudice’ produced via appeal to the ‘sophistication’ and ‘superiority’ of the Western European educational model and extant universities where the Eastern European academic youth will be subverted to a point of view inimical to his or her national interest.

In short, this is a finessed form of seduction typical of clandestine services psychological operations playing on ego via flattery, spiced with opportunity, through, among other nominally ‘peer to peer’ associations, the supposed educator to educator peer relationship. The lie involved is simple; “this is good for humanity, it is good for your nation and it is good for your career.”

It is from within this carefully cultivated ‘talent pool’ of narcissism there will be assessments of individuals to determine who will best fit certain ‘gambits’ to be made in the subversion of the targeted larger society. Some will be prone to sincerely ‘believe’ in their ‘mission’ no matter symptoms indicating a converse circumstance in actuality (denial.) Others might demonstrate character weakness indicating opportunity to entrap the person with a bribe or other form of corruption and hold the potential for blackmail. Sex is a tried and true formula, especially recording encounters of the closet homosexual where opportunity to introduce one of these to sex with an underage partner is considered a ‘premium’ development of ‘talent.’ These will be the people afforded greater access to ‘power’, whether through invitation to diplomatic social events or other means.

These ‘premium assets’ will then be positioned as closely as possible to the apex of the political structures; but should not necessarily have to be, example given, a ‘minister’ or their direct assistants. It is sometimes preferred these positions of power be occupied by less intelligent (and intellectually insecure) political persons that can be influenced but are also expendable in case where if the desired outcome fails, the cultivated asset’s ability to influence remains intact and available for future chances.

In case where, for instance, the Serbian education minister becomes the target of the rank and file educators (teachers and lower level administrators) for some seeming incompetence such as historical revisionism in textbooks made available for purchase for use by the schools, taken together with the education system’s newly computerized administrative tools having been outsourced to foreign business, as is alleged to be the case in Serbia in the Spring of 2020 by the Union of Educators for the district of Moravicki Okrug, were the educators reasons for rebellion substantiated and the revolt to be successful with the education minister dismissed, actually what has happened is only one snake’s head has been cut off from what amounts to a Medusa; because the rebellious educators are looking vertically at a horizontal construction. For this fact, chances are very strong that any political appointment stepping into the ministry position as a replacement will become another manifestation of the same gorgon’s head.

Meanwhile, counter-intelligence will be mostly focused on military matters, in circumstance where education, although perhaps monitored for matters of classic espionage (spies), will be left largely alone to function ‘normally.’ Most of the cultivated agents in this sector are essentially ignorant of their own roles, and those which are blackmailed and/or willful traitors, will be perceived as a lesser threat where a cost analysis determines cleaning up and securing education would pay too great a price; because the accusations and resultant legal mechanisms that would see hysterical coverage by the Western propaganda machine will be cast in a light of ‘political persecutions’ subjecting the state to international prosecutions.

Essentially, what the Western world’s clandestine services have sorted is, a mostly legal method of shaping the future of states like Serbia; via influence in education with form of legal bribery through socialization, scholarships and ‘privileged’ other opportunities, cultivating perspectives in academia. The Russian method of dealing with circumstance of this nature has been, recently, to require foreign NGOs to register as agents and restrict their activities; even going so far as to ban some organizations. But Russia has no pretense of joining the EU and EU has little effective tools for coercion in Russia.

Insofar as historical revisionism, this will be on the plate in ever expanding menu of shaping the future perspective of Serbians; in which case it should be noted how historical revisionism is a mainstay of the Western European structure with short example of none other than Konrad Adenauer himself.

“The Dulles brothers were traitors” -USA Supreme Court Justice Arthur Goldberg

Dwight Eisenhower’s Secretary of State (foreign minister) John Foster Dulles, and his brother, the longest ever serving Director of the CIA, Allen Dulles, were pre-world war (II) business partners with the 3rd Reich. [5]

In the immediate post war years, both were instrumental in rehabilitating many of the Reich’s worst war criminals, in partnership with the government of Konrad Adenauer. It was Allen Dulles’ CIA rescued as much as possible of the 3rd Reich’s Eastern Front intelligence apparatus and together with the hire of at least one hundred former SS and Gestapo officers, created ‘The Gehlen Organization’ (named after it’s commander, Reinhard Gehlen, Hitler’s anti-Soviet intelligence chief and a major war criminal) which was then gifted to Konrad Adenauer as Germany’s post war clandestine spy service or BND (Bundesnachrichtendienst.) Konrad Adenauer himself was complicit in the pardon of convicted war criminal Alfred Krupp who had employed Gestapo supervised slave labor (mostly Russians) in his factories supplying the Nazi war machine. Krupp was released from prison and his personal fortune restored. [6], [7]

“The chapter of collective guilt for militarists alongside activists and beneficiaries of the National Socialist regime must be ended, once and for all. I think we now need to finish with this sniffing out of Nazis” -Konrad Adenauer [8]

None of this is printed in the Western European history books, a case of historical revisionism concealing the counterfeit ‘rehabilitation’ of Nazis.

Incidental to this, ‘Ambassador’ Arndt Freytag von Loringhoven, a former German clandestine spy services (BND) assistant director & recent NATO intelligence chief is the son of Hitler’s last serving staff intelligence officer, Berndt Freytag von Loringhoven, a more than ironic symbology where a context has been proposed, in online education provided by the Serbian state, that NATO is actually a ‘peace organization.’ [9], [10], [11]

“There is not the smallest reason for confounding nationalism, which is the desire of a people to be itself, with imperialism, which is the desire of a people to prevent other peoples from being themselves” -Cicily Isabel Fairfield

Despite Fairfield’s astute observation (in perhaps the greatest intelligence assessment ever written on the Balkans – Black Lamb & Grey Falcon) concerning the actual nature of nationalism, it is perfectly predictable that any attempts by Serbia’s educators and politicians to rectify this circumstance would be met by the imperial ambitions of NATO & the German dominated EU with propagandized accusations of ‘nationalism’, painting all Serbian patriots with a single brush via a word that has been weaponized; no matter the individuals’ character. In other words, trumpeting the word ‘nationalist’ and pointing a finger, the Western European propaganda machine will send the message to its own peoples ‘these Serbs are behaving like baboons who should be put in their place’ or that is to say those close to real Nazis, concealing their own history & motivations, will accuse the Serbs of being Nazis.

“Give me the child until he is seven and I care not who has him thereafter” -Ignatius of Loyola

It follows, this statement alleged to have been made by the founder of the ‘educator’ Society of Jesuits, is of the utmost importance in the context of this circumstance. If Serbia, as has been planned for with a World Bank loan of fifty million euro, proceeds to make state education mandatory from the age of three years with the sort of outside ‘expertise’ noted in this assessment, the future capture of the nation-state by Western empire will have been made complete. Directly relevant to this, Serbia’s notable ability to produce genius will have been extinguished. In the educational model to now, where the child begins proper school at age 6-7 years, although certainly not available to all per family circumstance, there are those pre-school children who will explore and develop the mind in ways pointing to future creative genius that excludes uniform education beginning at age three. The naturally endowed intelligence in a child provided daycare by the grandparents might, by chance, time to time, somehow resemble the method of Maria Montessori, or other natural development of a bright child’s mind, mapping the mind in manner opening doors to a future genius. This opportunity is being stripped away.

Finally, the coup de grâce over education in Serbia is already underway; where disciplinary method has been removed from the schools’ power and the ‘liberal’ method allows disobedience & disrespect to disrupt the class, lessons, and quality of education, not only robbing the respectful students, but will drive out of the Serbian education system’s future many bright and devoted minds or those passionate professionals truly devoted to children. After, the only quality education will be those private educations available to the elites, because a successful imperialism requires a stupid citizenry.

An Exposé of Semi-Farcical Reality in Today’s Realpolitik

gonads |ˈgōnads|
noun
vulgar slang a man’s testicles.

We begin with John Helmer’s excellent reporting, that at the beginning of 2017, Assange offered to give up Wikileaks to the Americans for his freedom:

In retrospect, the Waldman-Warner texts reveal that it was Assange’s intention to use Waldman to make a connection, not to the Kremlin, but to the US Government, trading Wikileaks for Assange’s freedom. Assange was requesting, so Waldman told Warner, safe passage to Washington and release from threats of US prosecution in return for information regarding “future leaks” and a promise not “to do something catastrophic for the dems, Obama, CIA and national security”. Waldman wrote that to Warner on February 16, 2017, adding: “I hope someone will consider getting him to the US to ameliorate the damage” [1]

Despite the insinuation Assange would provide cover for the false narrative of the DNC mails ‘hack’, Assange’s proposal came to naught. Before the end of 2017 and the final abandonment of this effort, Assange opens another channel, via Dana Rohrabacher, sending a different signal in his bargaining for his freedom game:

“Our three-hour meeting covered a wide array of issues, including the WikiLeaks exposure of the DNC [Democratic National Committee] emails during last year’s presidential election,” Rohrabacher said at the time. “Julian emphatically stated that the Russians were not involved in the hacking or disclosure of those emails.

“Julian .. indicated that he is open to further discussions regarding specific information about the DNC email incident that is currently unknown to the public” [2]

Attempting a new direction, shifting away from Trump’s (Assange would appear to believe, not entirely incorrectly) CIA aligned enemies, to what Assange appears to believe are avenue to Trump’s allies, Assange now has attempted to sell the the real deal for his freedom, the fact Seth Rich leaked the DNC mail to Wikileaks. But that didn’t work either.

Skipping forward to 2019, Trump attorney (snake, actually), Rudy Giuliani, attempts to open negotiations with Wikileaks in the public arena:

“”Maybe it will shed light on the plot to create an investigation of President Trump based on a false charge of conspiracy with the Russians to affect the 2016 elections. Keep your eye on Ukraine,” Giuliani said. “It’s possible with all his sources he might know or have information of how it all started.

”Giuliani specified that he was talking about Assange exposing the origins of the federal investigation of possible Trump collusion with Russia and was not raising the possibility of Assange disproving that Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

“Giuliani said he believed Assange may be able to “show who invented [the] false story that [Trump] colluded with Russians.”

“Giuliani, a former U.S. attorney and New York City mayor, said he was “not sure yet” if Assange helping exonerate Trump would lighten his possible criminal penalties” [3]

What Giuliani has done in the preceding is, left Assange and Wikileaks a dangle; there is enough ‘wiggle room’ in what Giuliani has proposed for Wikileaks to pin the false ‘hack’ story on the Ukrainians, framing those losers for allegedly having framed Russia, and if Assange doesn’t play ball ‘we will bury you’ (put a cutout of Giuliani’s head on Khrushchev’s body while pounding his shoe on the podium.) This provides manageable cover to the CIA, gives Hillary’s people the ‘now you only look stupid’ graceful exit from the Russia collusion story but the end result might have been to push the House of Representatives over the edge and to go through with impeachment; emphasizing never underestimate the stupidity of your Congressperson. [4]

Now, it is Craig Murray’s present fumbling about, while looking for his misplaced testicles, where this story actually gets interesting. In this respect it should be noted the ‘shadow government’ (corporate board personalities, actually) and its’ minions collectively known as the ‘deep state’ (bought in members of bureaucracy) are not a monolith but a set of competing interests, with spooks at its’ center. Also it should be noted it would not only be Western intelligence agencies would work to penetrate Wikileaks. It follows, Wikileaks having been compromised by the intelligence agencies should demonstrate certain symptoms that may or not indicate the noted competing interests but would certainly be illustrated through inconsistencies such as Wikileaks chief editor Kristinn Hrafnsson’s blatant leaving the door open to the phony Russian ‘hack’ narrative…

At minute 1:10 of the video “It is said […] this is material Russian agents obtained through hacking […] I haven’t seen any evidence substantiating […] the claim [but] it might materialize at some point” [5]

…with a date of March 2019 and certainly inviting Giuliani’s offer to Wikileaks of ‘play our game or we bury Assange’ that cannot be coincidental to this when perfectly timed to Assange’s arrest, Assange is arrested on 11 April, Giuliani’s offer is on 12 April.

But Wikileaks cannot cut a deal and here is why:

C_Murray_blog - 1

“A persistent American lawyer has uncovered the undeniable fact that the FBI has been continuously lying, including giving false testimony in court, in response to Freedom of Information requests for its records on Seth Rich. The FBI has previously given affidavits that it has no records regarding Seth Rich.

“A Freedom of Information request to the FBI which did not mention Seth Rich, but asked for all email correspondence between FBI Head of Counterterrorism Peter Strzok, who headed the investigation into the DNC leaks and Wikileaks, and FBI attorney Lisa Page, has revealed two pages of emails which do not merely mention Seth Rich but have “Seth Rich” as their heading. The emails were provided in, to say the least, heavily redacted form” [6]

This reflects the fact, Murray, who knows full well it was Seth Rich LEAKED the DNC mails, isn’t going to play Giuliani’s ‘Wikileaks can frame the Ukrainians for framing the Russians’ game. In this scenario, Murray, who has never come clean about his knowing it was Seth Rich, not only knows the real story, he also knows if the real story were to become widely acknowledged, his reputation would be toast. [7], [8]

It was Hrafnsson opened the door to Giuliani’s offer on RT (Russia Today), and now Murray, despite (or perhaps because of) his .ru email address (I’d put the full address here but it would open me to ‘doxing’ charges), has now pulled in the opposite direction. Is it the Russians had determined the risks finally outweighed the benefits (cost analysis) has finally shut the door on any ‘deal’ involving Assange? If Assange rots to death in British & American custody, it would be a Russian propaganda boon, the ‘persecuted Assange’ narrative has been a longtime Russian propaganda blessing, milked for all it’s worth, pandering to the many duped Western alternative media stars, no matter the ‘Assange story’ has never stacked up. [9]

Now, we can throw into to the mix of this recipe for ‘cursed stew’, the fact Assange’s high profile lawyers closely tie into Bill Browder of Magnitsky Act fame:

“American journalist Lucy Komisar, who specializes in US finance and tax evasion, denounces the existence of lawyers’ interests that are radically opposed to Julian Assange’s defence criteria. Assange lawyers and their Chambers are both targeted” [10]

What we have here is, plain & simple, Russophobe elements supposedly ‘defending’ Assange. Would any sane spook expect American and British intelligence wouldn’t have their fingers in this aspect of the Wikileaks pie? Well, they’re all trained to lie, so you’ll probably never see an admission.

Now, we’ll spice this sewage soup with a bit of Craig Murray disclaimer:

“I do not know and I deliberately have not inquired what are the views on other subjects of either Mr Ty Clevenger, who brought his evidence and blog to my attention, or Judicial Watch, who made the FOIA request that revealed these documents” [Ibid 6]

Well, that’s convenient, maybe Crag doesn’t want to know for good reasons. In any case, just to inform you all, Judicial Watch is a Trump partisan, right-wing group that notably had unearthed the Defense Intelligence Agency report (with an FOIA request) detailing the Western democracies deliberately creating the circumstance for the rise of Islamic State, enabling Mike Flynn (Trump’s National Security Advisor lynched by Mueller’s Russiagate FBI mob with a bit of help from Mike Pence, remember Flynn?) to spill his guts on the matter to Mehdi Hasan at Al Jazeera:

“”declared or undeclared Salafist” – it’s not secret any more, it was released under FOI. The quote is: “There is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist Principality in eastern Syria and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want in order to isolate the Syrian regime.”” [11]

Murray’s source, Judicial Watch, is a pro-Trump deep state faction’s documents outlet opposed to the Never Trump Republican deep state faction that presently surrounds Trump, particularly noting the president’s lead hostage-takers, Pompeo & Pence (who took over from Trump’s previous jailers Kelly & Mattis.)

Craig Murray was just handed documents to back up what he already knows and opportunity he needed to stand up and blow the whistle and he couldn’t bring himself to do it.

All of this as Trump’s guilt or innocence vote in the Senate has been delayed to the day following his 2020 State of the Union speech. Will we see a deranged Trump lashing out from his captivity or a properly humbled, tail between his legs, Evangelicals’ prisoner Trump? On Wednesday morning, will the Senate wake up prepared to convict after all?

Who will write Trump’s speech? Will Trump stay on script?

Relevant to this, will Craig Murray, who full well knows the facts, find his misplaced testicles and plainly state the assassinated Seth Rich was the Wikileaks DNC mails source, kicking Pence and Pelosi (both) in the crotch by laying Russiagate out in the open as a false, combined neoliberal/neocon ‘Never Trump’ intelligence agency concoction?

Don’t count on it, if he was going to do it, Murray would more than merely allude to the concealed facts. This was Murray’s big chance and he blew it. As it is sometimes said in the Rocky Mountains ‘The British are a “sorry” race of people.’

Finger on the ScalesAny anonymous ‘state secrets’ (e.g. FBI fronting for CIA) finger

On the FBI’s fraudulent application for a FISA secret warrant (authorization to spy) on Carter Page: The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court’s ‘cover your ass’ Order Misc. 19-02 finding of fact:

“The frequency with which representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable. The FISC expects the government to provide complete and accurate information in every filing with the Court. Without it, the FISC cannot properly ensure that the government conducts electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes only when there is a sufficient factual basis”

That is why we ‘had’ a (‘lip serviced’ or given political fellatio by the court) so-called ‘Bill of Rights’ that went out the window with the National Security Act of 1947 (the underlying foundation of the FISA Court.) In fact there is not, and has never been, an advocate (sound legal mechanism) to insure the American citizen ‘targets’ of FISA court secret warrants are properly protected, via right of discovery demanding exculpatory evidence, and placing the Department of Justice personalities, the FBI particularly, squarely in the sights of prosecution for the above described or what amount to ‘color of law’ violations of Fourth Amendment and other rights. Now, on to the abject failure of what has been ordered:

“THEREFORE, the Court ORDERS that the government shall, no later than January 10, 2020, inform the Court in a sworn written submission of what it has done, and plans to do, to ensure that the statement of facts in each FBI application accurately and completely reflects information possessed by the FBI that is material to any issue presented by the application. In the event that the FBI at the time of that submission is not yet able to perform any of the planned steps described in the submission, it shall also include (a) a proposed timetable for implementing such measures and (b) an explanation of why, in the government’s view, the information in FBI applications submitted in the interim should be regarded as reliable”

We can put one + one together and see the how the math doesn’t stack up in a constitutionally sound way:

In the finding of fact: “…representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable” clearly casts doubt on the entire process and every FISA application ever made (noting the court has processed thousands of applications with a history of rejecting a handful.)

+

In the actual court order section we see “…an explanation of why, in the government’s view, the information in FBI applications submitted in the interim should be regarded as reliable” or essentially only a demand of from this point (date of the order, 17 December 2019) in any pending or future application will there be any correction made in circumstance of the FISA Court demanding the FBI ‘police themselves.’

Since when (post King George III our sovereign) has the state been entitled and/or trusted to ‘police themselves’ in matters of crimes of the state against its’ citizens? That was the underlying rationale of the Bill of Rights, precisely because the state cannot ever be trusted to do that.

This RANK FAIL (order) omits to do two critical things; use of the courts contempt powers to sanction the FBI (send a message, up to and inclusive of jailing the corrupt actors) and more importantly, search for, identify and provide avenue to remedy for plausible past abuses. This 2nd instance could easily (however imperfectly) be addressed, it would be as simple as the FISA Court appointing and empowering an independent special master (people’s advocate) with exculpatory evidence subpoena power to begin a review of past, present and future applications. Now, why doesn’t the court dare go there? Secrecy?

Here’s where it gets sticky for the secret court; in a case of ‘what you don’t know, won’t hurt you’ (and especially what you don’t know shouldn’t hurt the FISA court.) Firstly, if your rights have been violated, you won’t even be allowed to know it. Because if you WERE allowed to know this, it opens the door to all sorts of complications for the national security state, not only what the state has been up to in secret, where it is poking its’ nose, but certainly not least, a scrutiny of the FISA Court as a rubber stamp ‘star chamber’ in the absolute absence of any independent advocate mechanism to secure the rights of those Americans unfairly, wrongly, even maliciously, targeted by FISA secret spying warrants.

It follows, even if you have solid grounds (e.g. yours truly does) to believe corrupt FBI/FISA abuse happened to you, you won’t have a remedy because the established ‘state secrets’ doctrine demands you have no access to the documents necessary to substantiate your claim. The constitutional absurdity of this is, you cannot independently prove the government illegally-unjustly-corruptly spied on you (establish standing to sue), so you have no access to the proof they did, even when they did so egregiously, as was the one-off (became known) case of Carter Page.

What broke the Carter Page case into the open is politics, pure and simple, the fallout causing the FISA Court to issue the ‘cover your ass’ “Order Misc. 19-02” or a ‘police yourselves’ pretense of accountability.

 

Postscript: 22 December there is reportedly another (not yet released) order holding exactly ONE individual to account (referred to prosecution) for FISA abuse in the case of multiple deceits by several individuals exposed in the case of Carter Page (scapegoat settled upon!)
