It’s not often I’d post up a link to Pink News but this is too rich to pass up; with the New York Times and other (typically lying) media all abuzz with Bannon’s “meeting of  the hearts” (perhaps more appropriately known as a ‘bosom buddies’ crush) with Catholic arch-conservative Cardinal Raymond Burke. Let’s dig deeper and get to the ‘bottom’ of what’s really going on. Traced to the original source, the online, hard right, Opus Dei aligned (fascist), Catholic magazine Aleteia:

bannon_burke-jpg-1

“When you recognize someone who has sacrificed in order to remain true to his principles and who is fighting the same kind of battles in the cultural arena, in a different section of the battlefield, I’m not surprised there is a meeting of hearts,” said Benjamin Harnwell, a confidant of Cardinal Burke who arranged the 2014 meeting”

Going to a ‘meeting of the hearts’ concerning ‘battles in the cultural arena’, one must more than simply wonder exactly what this particular ‘battle’ has to do with internal strife concerning one’s sexuality. Why hadn’t Aleteia just ‘come out’ on behalf of Burke, and stated the obvious; Bannon’s recent ‘bosom buddy’, the mandatory-by-theology-homo-hating Burke, has his own serious sexuality issues:

Certain Trump picks point to a religious-criminal cabal preparing for a Pence presidency. What do Vice President Mike Pence, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and certainly not least, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, have in common? Membership in ‘The Fellowship’, a quasi-religious organization-unregistered lobby with fingerprints all over past USA international crimes sprees. These three significant personalities all are under the ‘spiritual’ tutelage of Doug Coe, leader of ‘The Family’ where if you are ‘chosen’ there is a different standard, an unaccountable standard, where everything up to and inclusive of child rape is excused:

I’d almost forgotten the time Dan Coats, Trump’s pick for National Intelligence Director — the man to whom 16 intelligence agencies report — called me an “enemy of Jesus.”

Well, I didn’t hear him do it, but the source seemed solid. It was, I think, 2004, and I’d been invited to speak at the University of Potsdam, near Berlin, in a series sponsored by the U.S. embassy. My subject was “the Family,” the secretive fundamentalist organization of which Coats, unbeknownst to me at the time, is a member. When I arrived, my German host told me there’d been a little problem: the ambassador — Dan Coats — had blocked funding for my talk. “He said,” my host said, in thickly accented English, “you are an ‘enemy of Jesus.'”

My host was one of those deadpan Germans. He didn’t smile. I said, “You’re joking.”

“Yes,” he said, still unsmiling, “that is what I thought, too.” Apparently, the Germans had gone back and forth a couple of times with the embassy, unable to believe this was serious. And apparently the embassy personnel were plenty embarrassed about it, too. But that was Coats’ ruling, so it stuck. Fortunately for me, the university picked up my tab” Jeff Sharlet, author of The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power & C Street: The Fundamentalist Threat to American Democracy

Jeff Sharlet, in a 2003 interview, had stated concerning the Doug Coe cult:

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

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

Doug Coe’s ‘international bad friends’ have included (but are not limited to) Papa Doc Duvalier whose Tonton Macoute militia murdered up to 60,000 Haitians, “the most corrupt leader in modern history” (Transparency International) and mass murderer Suharto (Indonesia), CIA sponsored war criminal Gustavo Álvarez Martínez (Honduras), CIA ‘dirty wars’ mass torturer and murderer General Carlos Eugenios Vides Casanova (El Salvador), extrajudicial killer, kidnapper and torturer Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo (Equatorial Guinea), indicted war criminal Omar al-Bashir (Sudan), child soldier commander Joseph Kabila (Congo), Pentagon trained war criminal Paul Kagame (Rwanda), Kagame ally and child soldier employer Yoweri Museveni (Uganda)  and killer par excellence Mohamed Siad Barre whom Coe facilitated (together with Charles Grassley) receiving the American weaponry Barre used to ‘wreak a biblical terror on his own nation’ (Somalia, which has never recovered.) To name a few.

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

“We” clearly includes Dan Coats and a political ‘bedroom’ surprise:

“Sharlet explores the role of a distinct “elite fundamentalism” through our history and culture, and illustrates how it currently operates at top levels of American business, government, and the military. This may come as a shock to those for whom overt fundamentalism in the federal government was not apparent before the administration of George W. Bush. But Sharlet demonstrates its role during the Cold War and since. We learn for example, of how “charitable choice,” the legislative precedent for George W. Bush’s “faith-based initiative,” stemmed from ideas incubated by The Family, and was sponsored by Family members, Republican Senators John Ashcroft and Dan Coats—with an assist from Family associate Senator Hillary Clinton”

Yep, that’s right folks, Dan Coats and Hillary share the same ‘spiritual’ umbrella:

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

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

Yeah, the Hitler, Lenin & Mao admiring Coe is the ‘Christian’ spiritual guru of both; Hillary Rodham Clinton and Trump’s DNI Dan Coats. What more do we know?

Aspiring members of Coats’ ‘Family’ can be excused multiple child rapes:

dni1-1

“But David Coe, Doug Coe’s son and heir apparent, calls himself simply a friend to men such as John Ensign, whom he guided through the coverup of his affair. I met the younger Coe when I lived for several weeks as a member of the Family. He’s a surprising source of counsel, spiritual or otherwise. Attempting to explain what it means to be chosen for leadership like King David was — or Mark Sanford, according to his own estimate — he asked a young man who’d put himself, body and soul, under the Family’s authority, “Let’s say I hear you raped three little girls. What would I think of you?” The man guessed that Coe would probably think that he was a monster. “No,” answered Coe, “I wouldn’t.” Why? Because, as a member of the Family, he’s among what Family leaders refer to as the “new chosen.” If you’re chosen, the normal rules don’t apply

In relation to child rape, when you belong to Coats’ ‘family’ “If you’re chosen, the normal rules don’t apply” (keep reading)

Coats & anyone’s minor daughter

If anything, our Director of National Intelligence & ‘friends’ should recall:

 

Related to this preceding, we have Hillary working with Republican ‘Family’ to reduce a sex trafficking conviction to the much lower level of a prostitution conviction, which would seem like an ‘insurance policy’ were the DC centered pedophilia to break into the open at any level:

“What we saw was Hillary shaving off here and there on issues she didn’t think that the public would notice, trying to win peace with the Christian right.

“On the one level, you say that’s great, Democracy works through compromise.

“When you look more closely at some of the legislation, like sex trafficking legislation, she teamed up with [‘Family’ Senator Sam] Brownback and allowed Brownback to redesign legislation meant to stop sex trafficking, to make it an offense punishable as nothing more than prostitution.

“I think most sane people know that prostitutes are not the real criminals in this business, it’s the people moving human chattel around the world. The Family looks at it a bit differently”

https://lasvegassun.com/news/2009/jul/19/behind-closed-doors-c-street/

A 2011 ‘Family’ Senate membership list includes not only DNI Dan Coats but also Trump’s Attorney General pick Jeff Sessions, pointing to we’ll know who, what and why ‘Family’ crimes, inclusive of child rape, will never be prosecuted:

Sen. Dan Coats (R-IN)
Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK)
Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC)
Sen. John Ensign (R-NV)
Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY)
Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK)
Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL)
Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR)
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)
Sen. John Thune (R-SD)
Sen. David Vitter (R-LA)

And then Mike Pence shows up:

“It’s this theology that drives the international exploits of a secretive group of Capitol Hill elites — including Jim DeMint and Mike Pence — known alternately as the Fellowship or the Family. The Family made rare headlines last year, when it was revealed the group had supported the Ugandan lawmakers who proposed an anti-LGBT bill that would make certain practices punishable by death”

http://indianavote.blogspot.com/2012/01/mike-pence-and-c-street-cult-aka.html

Regardless of what you might think of Trump, and our republic’s archaic electoral college (constitutional provision) that elected him, Trump is the USA’s legitimate president. Meanwhile, any naif who’d believe these sort of ‘family’ personalities wouldn’t stoop to supporting a ‘Bump Trump’ caper, to put their man Pence into the White House, is not only beyond head examining help, we also could easily be worse off for the fact.

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

Not only does Coe state the immediate preceding in the video, he goes on to admire the underhanded acquiring of power by Germany’s Nazis.

Recalling Hillary’s work with the Coe cult and her endorsement of its leader, in the video she is demonstrated to be lying (not surprisingly, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell fails to call the lie out.)

“Doug Coe is my personal hero” -Al Gore

Clearly we are looking at a bi-partisan bag of maggots.

Finally, we have the trivia moment questions:

Who was the lawyer fresh out of Harvard Law School who went to work for Sullivan & Connolly about the time that firm began representing the Clintons in Whitewater? Answer: Trump’s CIA pick Mike Pompeo.

2nd question; who was advising Hillary’s people on damage control concerning Hillary’s unauthorized-unsecured home email server? Answer: Mike Pompeo’s former boss at Sullivan & Connolley LLP, David Kendall. DC is a very small (and incestuous) world.

22 January 2017 update: Coe had already powered his way into a meeting with Trump, this past December, using Mike Pence and  Senators  Chris Coons (Delaware) and John Boozman (Arkansas.)

coe_trumo_meet-1

“Every president since Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1953 has spoken at the breakfast, a point made at the meeting to Trump by the evangelical lay minister Douglas Coe, a leader in The Fellowship religious organization, according to Coons. Also attending the meeting with Trump was Boozman, Vice President-elect Mike Pence, and several of Trump’s faith advisers”

The meeting was ostensibly about ‘spiritual’ affairs but clearly in a context of politics, policy and bringing pressure on Trump. So the Mao Red Guard admiring ‘decapitate your mother for Jesus’ because it’s ‘the right thing to do’ minister Doug Coe has already arrived on scene with his ‘Prayer Breakfast’ diktat.

So, ‘the donald’ has selected Rick Perry to run the United States Department of Cocaine, er, Energy. But you get lots of energy from cocaine, right? Wouldn’t putting Perry, who quashed a major break by investigators digging into drug cartel corruption in the USA, in charge of ‘energy’ make perfect sense? Here follows is the verbatim story from the El Paso Times in September, 2011, taken down from the paper’s website but preserved elsewhere:

*

By Diana Washington Valdez
El Paso Times

Two former law enforcement officers allege that they cannot get anyone to investigate allegations that the Mexican drug cartels have corrupted U.S. law officers and politicians in the El Paso border region.

Greg Gonzales, a retired Doña Ana County sheriff’s deputy, and Wesley Dutton, a rancher and former New Mexico state livestock investigator, said that instead of arrests and prosecutions of suspects, their whistle-blowing activities have resulted only in threats and retaliation against themselves.

“I lost my job for a security company at the federal courthouse in Las Cruces because I would not keep my mouth shut, and someone threatened me by holding a knife to my throat,” Gonzales said.

Dutton, a rancher in Southern New Mexico, said an election official stopped by his ranch to ask him what was it going to take for him to retract his allegations concerning the official.

Confidential sources

Both men were confidential sources for the FBI in El Paso and assisted with investigations over an 18-month period.

Gonzales and Dutton allege that the FBI dropped them after “big names” on the U.S. side of the border began to surface in the drug investigations.

FBI Special Agent Michael Martinez said that the FBI cannot comment on its former or current relationships with confidential sources.

Dutton said an FBI official who used to be in El Paso sent a memo to other law enforcement agencies in the area to dissuade them from talking to him and Gonzales or having anything to do with them.

Gonzales and Dutton said both or either one of them helped with federal investigations that were successful, including the arrest of Special FBI Agent John Shipley. Shipley was convicted of weapons-related charges after a weapon he sold someone turned up in Chihuahua state at a scene where a firefight took place between Mexican soldiers and drug traffickers.

However, they said, they are concerned that other serious allegations have not found their way to court.

Hit on agent

“One of the street gangs that works for the Juárez cartel put a hit out on FBI Special Agent Samantha Mikeska, and I told the FBI as soon as I heard about it,” Dutton said. “We also had information on campaign fundraisers and parties in La Union that the cartel held for officials from New Mexico and El Paso. A lot of important people were at those parties, such as bankers, judges, and law enforcement officers.”

Mikeska is a high-profile agent whose investigations of the Barrio Azteca gang led to prosecutions of gang leaders. The gang, which has members in West Texas and New Mexico, is linked to the Carrillo Fuentes drug cartel.

Gonzales said a U.S. law enforcement officer was suspected of selling to a street gang with Juárez drug cartel ties a list of U.S. Marshals that included their telephone numbers.

“With their number, the gang was able to ‘clone’ the agents’ cell phones and intercept their calls,” Gonzales said. “That way, they would know when one of the agents was trying to serve an arrest warrant against one of their members.”

Dutton and Gonzales said small aircraft regularly drop drug loads on ranches or other properties along the U.S.-Mexico border, and that some U.S. law officers escort the loads to the next stop.

The two whistle-blowers said that drug cartels have managed to obtain computer access codes to U.S. surveillance systems that let them see where and when Border Patrol agents are monitoring the border.

They also alleged that drug cartels have given big donations to politicians, which are unreported, to influence appointments of key law enforcement officers.

Some of these allegations were contained in a letter that Dutton provided to Gov. Rick Perry, who is seeking the Republican Party’s nomination for president in the 2012 election.

“Our office received the letter and referred it to the appropriate agency, which was the Department of Public Safety,” Josh Havens, a spokesman for the Texas governor’s office, said last Friday.

Steven McCraw, director of the Texas Department of Public Safety and a former FBI agent from El Paso, said last Friday that he was interested in talking to Dutton. Then, about a half-hour later, McCraw said that Dutton had no credibility.

‘Nothing there’

“We looked into it and there was nothing there,” McCraw said.

Dutton said in response, “How can they say there was nothing when they didn’t even look at what I have?”

Dutton said he has videos, telephone records, and other documents gathered over the 18 months he worked with the FBI.

“The DPS never asked to see any of it,” Dutton said.

During his work with the FBI, Dutton said the FBI asked him to accept drug shipments from Mexico through his ranching company.

“The drugs were concealed in horse saddles, and we started getting a lot of them,” Dutton said. “But the FBI kept putting me off when I asked for the money to pay the cartels for the drugs. I had to use my own funds. The FBI still owes me thousands of dollars for these out-of-pocket expenses.

“I asked the FBI for help when I started getting threats, but the only thing that happened is that everyone starting running for cover to protect their careers,” Dutton said. “One of the FBI agents said politics got in the way, and that they had to close out the investigation and end their relationship with me.”

As a state livestock investigator, Dutton made arrests like any other law enforcement officer, collaborated with sheriffs’ offices, seized drugs and investigated thefts. He also developed intelligence that drug cartels used cross-border cattle shipments to transport drugs across the border at Santa Teresa.

Zetas cartel

Dutton said other informants told him that the Zetas drug cartel has a high-level member in Las Cruces whose wife holds a non-law enforcement job in the DEA’s office.

The whistle-blowers also alleged that the corruption they’ve encountered includes a prominent doctor in El Paso who provides prescriptions for drugs to people who need to pass lie-detector tests.

“The FBI was provided with all this information, and I guess that’s why they’re now saying that we’re crazy,” Dutton said.

Dutton and Gonzales said their frustration over the lack of investigations has compelled them to turn to U.S. lawmakers and to Judicial Watch for help.

Judicial Watch is a conservative, nonpartisan educational foundation in Washington, D.C., which promotes transparency, accountability and integrity in government, politics and the law.

The organization publishes a list each year of the “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” of both major political parties.

Chris Ferrell, Judicial Watch research director, confirmed that Dutton has been in contact with his office.

“These are very serious allegations that should be investigated by law enforcement,” Ferrell said. “There are too many details and specifics to just ignore them. The threats against them (Dutton and Gonzales) also should be investigated.”

Nero Fiddles While Empire Implodes

This post also could be called ‘double standards’ or ‘it takes a thief to catch a thief’, ‘a gallery of hypocrites’, or perhaps best of all: ‘Enough Americans are eating turkey and watching football while sucking up faux news to enable the hijacking of the republic (again)’

On the outskirts of empire, battles rage. Concerning Aleppo, the grand spigots of the empire’s overseas holdings shriek of the ‘human disaster‘ as Assad aligned forces eradicate the ‘good’ salafist extremists:

“Samantha Power, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Monday called weekend attacks by Syrian and Russian forces on Aleppo “horrifying””

But no such qualms are expressed when empire is eradicating the ‘bad’ salafist extremists in Mosul:

“The city has been a prison for its residents for more than two years under ISIS. Now, with the extremist group amassing people around its fighters, Mosul could tragically become a graveyard”

And:

“IRBIL, Iraq: Doctors in the main hospital treating trauma victims from the battle for Mosul say they are overflowing with casualties, both civilians and soldiers”

‘tragic’ when it’s civilians dying because of empire aligned forces going after the ‘bad’ salafists empire doesn’t like and criminal when it’s civilians dying as Assad goes after the ‘good’ (‘moderate’ extremists is the empire’s preferred label) salafists aligned with empire.

Meanwhile, in the ‘homeland’ (was there ever a better moniker to describe the USA as Lord, and the rest of the world as vassal), palace intrigue plays out between Donald ‘Roy Cohn made me‘ Trump, Hillary Frump (Guinness World Record for the biggest ass in politics, when taken literally), and America’s newest jaded political streetwalker to break out on the scene in the big story, Jill ‘won 1% of the vote but will recount for the Clinton frump on Soros dime‘ Stein.

Following on having dusted off sheepdog Bernie Sanders a-la George Bush (recalling ‘boy’ George sinking Ron Paul in past Republican primaries with Diebold computerized vote fraud) will Hillary’s ([1] Colorado, [2] Virginia & [3] North Carolina & Florida, [4] New Hampshire, [5] California, [6] Pennsylvania, [7] New York stories about possible dead people voting; of the Pew Research estimate of nearly 2,000,000 dead but registered voters) ‘dead but voting’ ballots hold out to reverse ‘the donald’s’ own computerized vote fraud; which had been strategically positioned to win the Electoral College as opposed to the (includes Hillary’s dead) popular vote? As empire implodes, CIA’s American Nero (ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC) plays fiddle, or better said, distracts the people with games at the Coliseum (USC 45, Notre Dame 27), time to time pushing aside soaps.

Meanwhile, since we’re not allowed to know about the Clinton historic ties to CIA organized crime (e.g. Contra drug trafficking), Americans are holding out for full disclosure on the more important issue:

If ‘The Donald’ Were a Real… (man?)

General Michael Flynn on Al Jazeera ^

“Right-wing pundits have often claimed due to this background that the decision to withdraw troops from Iraq was the key enabling factor in the resurgence of AQI, and its eventual metamorphosis into ISIS.

“But Flynn’s revelations prove the opposite — that far from the rise of ISIS being solely due to a vacuum of power in Iraq due to the withdrawal of US troops, it was the post-2011 covert intervention of the US and its allies, the Gulf states and Turkey, which siphoned arms and funds to AQI as part of their anti-Assad strategy”

Specifically, intelligence produced under General Flynn when he was boss of the Defense Intelligence Agency, that he had clearly endorsed when interviewed by Al Jazeera includes this language:

“…there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality [Islamic State] in Eastern Syria .. and this is exactly what the supporting powers [USA, Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia et al] to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime…”

And it’s not like this had been unknown to the USA’s intelligence sharing partners:

“TURKEY has been accused of supporting the Islamic State and other Islamist groups across the Middle East, a leaked German government report has claimed”

But Suddenly Mike Flynn does a 180 degrees turnaround:

“Turkey is really our strongest ally against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), as well as a source of stability in the region”

Wow. Nothing like 30 pieces of Turkish silver to betray ‘the truth will make you free’

Alternative title: Target Iran

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

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

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

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

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

The full essay can be read HERE.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

considering:

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

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

“Never Trump”

This was the headline in my mail from Jonathan Penton at unlikelystories.org. Followed on with:

“Hopefully the subject line is clear enough. Fascism is back, and we’ve chosen to fight it. What have you got to say about it? We’re looking for all sorts of reactions, predictive and current, global and American. We want all the art and literature and crazy passionate rage you’ve got”

Ok, so Trump played on racism and nationalist sentiment in his election campaign. No argument with that. But then…

Have a read:

“the covert Obama strikes, the first of which hit Pakistan just three days after his inauguration, have killed almost six times more people and twice as many civilians than those ordered in the Bush years, the data shows”

Who is to say Obama and Hillary are not fascist? Might in fact Hillary be closer to Mussolini than Trump is to Hitler? Have another read:

“Obviously, the sitting parties in Congress want[ed] nothing more than for Trump to be branded a fascist. Which is why Hillary Clinton not long ago compared him to Adolf Hitler. Through a wider philosophical and historical lens, there are two issues with that claim. First, Trump hasn’t killed anyone. Second, the person making the claim has.

“The problem for Hillary is that a lot of Americans understand this. And that because of this such claims have started to backfire in a 180º turnaround. You can witness the same process in Britain’s Brexit debate, and in many other countries.

“I’m not writing this to support Trump or Le Pen, they’re not my kind of people at all. But neither is Hillary. I write it to warn people away from vacuous claims and statements. Which are not only dishonest, they have started to support the very people they’re made against. The political climate is changing, because the economy is tanking.

“And I write this to indicate that fascism may well already be amongst us, and it would be a good idea if we learned to recognize it. To suggest that perhaps, if we’re honest, Hillary is closer to Mussolini than Trump is to Hitler.

“Look, we could talk our faces blue about the differences and analogies between fascism and racism, something the ‘new right wing’ seems to have plenty of, and something Muhammad Ali’s death and yesterday’s Orlando massacre should teach us yet another lesson about. And we could talk about what they might potentially do if/when they acquire political power. But none of that makes these people fascists. Whereas the other side of the equation, the [lame duck] incumbents…”

Moving forward, would liberals care to examine Hillary’s support for a neo-nazi assisted coup in Ukraine? You don’t have to look far for the evidence, here is an authentic political left cover of the subject:

“Hillary Clinton has good reason to avoid these facts. Her popularity has plunged and the truth can only make matters worse. What is striking about her neo-McCarthyist attack, however, is how the same accusations she has made against Putin could be turned right back on her. As Secretary of State, Clinton laid the foundation for the coup in Ukraine in 2014. The coup’s mastermind, Victoria Nuland, was a Clinton surrogate who has been a chief foreign adviser for the Bush Jr. Administration. Ukraine is now controlled by political parties that harbor Nazi ideology such as the Right Sector”

And how many Syrians have died in a USA instigated covert war initiated on Hillary’s watch at the Department of State?

“In late 2011, after months of sustained anti-government protests inspired by the “Arab Spring” movement, Hillary Clinton called for the resignation of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. Then, in April 2012, Clinton gave a speech in Turkey more forcefully calling specifically for regime change, saying, “Assad must go.” Those three words created the policies that led to both the rise of ISIS in Syria and the European refugee crisis of 2015.

“One of Clinton’s last actions as Secretary of State was to call for the arming of Syrian rebels fighting Assad. As the London Telegraph reported, Clinton’s plan to give weapons to Assad’s enemies was backed by not only former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, but also by former CIA director David Petraeus and General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. While Obama initially rejected his Secretary of State’s plan, he eventually agreed to arm Syrian rebels in the goal of ousting Assad.

“However, as ISIS began to get a foothold into Syria and Iraq, the “moderates” that received weapons from the US were eventually overtaken by ISIS fighters, who suddenly found themselves in the possession of military-grade weapons paid for with US tax dollars. In a study conducted by Conflict Armament Research, which tracks the movement of arms in war-torn regions, researchers found that ISIS has weapons and ammunition not just from the US, but also from coalition forces that are funded by the US government. The access to advanced weaponry was likely the reason for ISIS’ rapid expansion into Libya, Egypt, and elsewhere.”

So, who is the proven murderer? ‘Never Clinton’ would perhaps be the best news the contemporary world could know, while on the other hand, the petty mobster Trump hasn’t had his chance … yet.

“Our vision of “transgressive” is proprietary, idiosyncratic, and possibly delusional, but we believe that when literature legitimately challenges the assumptions of the reader, it has the power to create pragmatic change” [partial] mission statement at unlikelystories.org

If well intended, self-delusional certainly… But then we found this story at Politico:

“Soros bands with donors to resist Trump, ‘take back power’

“George Soros and other rich liberals who spent tens of millions of dollars trying to elect Hillary Clinton are gathering in Washington for a three-day, closed door meeting to retool the big-money left to fight back against Donald Trump”

Politico is hardly some fringe news outlet. So, who are the fascists? A most unlikely story, “Never Trump”, would have you believe a proven mass killer, Hillary, is preferable to a petty mobster yet to put his hands on a trigger-misnomer called ‘The Oval Office.’ Huh. Inciting extra-constitutional street violence on behalf of a loser is apparently the new liberal value…

And who is a poet celebrated at unlikelystories.org? How about a “Soros Life Achievement Award” inkster:

“JANOS MARNO (born 1949, Budapest): Janos has published eight volumes of poetry and a book of essays, and translated works by Paul Celan. From 1967-1980, he silenced himself due to political discrimination. He has won the Jozsef Attila prize, the Dery prize, and the Soros Life Achievement award

What more could be said? Considering…

The Logic Behind the American Vote:

“Some toilet paper is scented. Most toilet paper is flushed. It follows, some flushed toilet paper will smell good

And finally, google search has noticed recent events resemblance to a Soros ‘color-revolution’ :
