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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The left ones think I’m [on the] right, the right [wing] ones think I’m wrong -Leon Russell

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

Mueller_Lockerbie - 1

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Assange-Goodman - 1

An old American ‘boy-prank’ directed at a deserving person (to send a message) was to fill a small paper bag with a fresh dog shit, put just a little bit of lighter fluid (kerosene) on it, place this on the porch of the target, light the bag on fire, ring the doorbell and run. If all went to plan, the target would open their door to sight of a small fire and reflexively stamp it out with their feet. As a metaphor, I’m inclined to think someone had done this to Matt Taibbi, and perhaps, to the editors of RollingStone.

RollingStone’s Why You Should Care About the Julian Assange Case [1] by Matt Taibbi, is a piece this writer (yours truly) finds not only disingenuous but worthy of an intelligence agency propaganda award.

The thrust of the article being any prosecution of Julian Assange endangers journalism, we’ll dissect Taibbi’s premise concerning a very plausible secret/sealed indictment of Assange:

“Assange’s lawyer Barry Pollack told Rolling Stone he had “not been informed that Mr. Assange has been charged, or the nature of any charges.”

“Pollock and other sources could not be sure, but within the Wikileaks camp it’s believed that this charge, if it exists, is not connected to the last election.

““I would think it is not related to the 2016 election since that would seem to fall within the purview of the Office of Special Counsel,” Pollack said.

“If you hate Assange because of his role in the 2016 race, please take a deep breath and consider what a criminal charge that does not involve the 2016 election might mean. An Assange prosecution could give the Trump presidency broad new powers to put Trump’s media “enemies” in jail, instead of just yanking a credential or two. The Jim Acosta business is a minor flap in comparison”

These four paragraphs likely have Gina Haspel’s information operations people over at Langley, Virginia, orgasming in their pants. Taibbi omits the fact trying Assange on charges unrelated to the ‘the Russians did it’ is a solid means of shutting Assange up and burying him where he cannot shed any light concerning the 2016 elections’ intelligence agency caper. Trying Assange on unrelated charges, prior to sending him to deep isolation at, for instance, Florence ADX super-max, actually solves a CIA problem. How’d that work? The American legal principle of ‘relevance’ [2] where practically infinite technicalities can be argued to exclude any mention or reference to another case possibly pending before another court, such as the work of the incredibly corrupt [3], [4] special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, example given. Yep, sending Julian off to super-max on charges unrelated to the 2016 ‘the Russians did it’ would be perfectly predictable (desirable outcome) for those intelligence operatives who’d used Wikileaks to frame Russia, and some of Trump’s associates [5], [6], for meddling in the USA’s so-called ‘democratic processes.’ Hey, Matt Taibbi, was it Gina Haspel set the dog shit on fire you proceeded stamp out? Because a bit further on in his article, Taibbi goes on to screw it up even more:

“The perception that Assange worked with Vladimir Putin to achieve his ends has further hardened responses among his former media allies.

“As to the latter, Assange denies cooperating with the Russians, insisting his source for the DNC leak was not a “state actor.” It doesn’t matter. That PR battle has already been decided”

Beyond political fellatio, Gina Haspel would arrange a literal blow-job for Taibbi (even give it herself, if only she were pretty enough) because RollingStone has gone on record stating the DNC mails leak story is passé, out-of-fashion, old news. In other words, Taibbi is saying there is no point in investigative journalism looking into whether (the promptly assassinated) Seth Rich was Wikileaks’ source of the DNC mails, despite more than ample evidence, even a ‘preponderance of the evidence’ or the USA civil law standard necessary for conviction. [7] He might as well have written “Don’t go there.” Why? We’ll come back to this.

Taibbi:

“Although Assange may not be a traditional journalist in terms of motive, what he does is essentially indistinguishable from what news agencies do, and what happens to him will profoundly impact journalism”

This is not only wrong, Taibbi (apparently without noticing) contradicts it himself later in the article:

“…the relationship between Assange and the press deteriorated quickly. A lot of this clearly had to do with Assange’s personality. Repeat attempts by (ostensibly sympathetic) reporters to work with Assange ended in fiascoes … gain[ing] him a reputation for egomania and grandiosity.

“Partners like the Committee to Protect Journalists, who had been sifting through Wikileaks material to prevent truly harmful information from getting out, began to be frustrated by what they described as a frantic pace of releases”

Precisely. Journalists not only vet their sources (Assange, in the past, has stated Wikileaks does not [8] ) but they also must assess whether they can do more harm than good with the secrets they are in possession of, and consider how to finesse information that must be divulged in the public interest in such a way as to not create social chaos. One means of attempting this would be to refer the actual material (documents) evidencing state crimes to the apropos authorities, while restraining oneself to writing about having done this within the context of the story, putting the relevant authority on the spot and in a position of having to do something. Wikileaks dumping massive caches is not journalism. This is not a case of, as Taibbi would have it, “…what he [Assange] does is essentially indistinguishable from what news agencies do”, that is if the news-service is not corrupted and taking intelligence agency scripts to amplify fake stories and bury real stories (like the Associated Press, Reuters, Washington Post, New York Times do, and now, clearly, RollingStone also does.)

This brings us to Assange had attempted, via Dana Rohrabacher, a horse-trade with Trump, where Assange gets immunity from prosecution or a pardon and Trump gets definitive proof the Wikileaks DNC mails source was not Russia. [9] The people surrounding Trump, notably Chief of Staff John Kelly, shut that avenue down. [10] Taibbi, with his ‘don’t go there’ posed as “It doesn’t matter. That PR battle has already been decided” obviously isn’t going to touch this, rather wants it buried. Why?

Possibly, even likely, because of a phenomenon we had seen slip out of the closet during the Obama POTUS tenure, meetings with John Brennan on “Kill List Tuesdays” where America’s extra-judicial assassinations targeting list had been regularly updated, to include American citizens. [11], [12], [13]

We can likely add to the CIA’s three known assassinations of American citizens abroad these past seven years, two of those ordered by Obama and one ordered by Trump, at least two domestic assassinations by CIA, both of which tie into this assessment; Seth Rich and Michael Hastings.

Seth Rich removed, whether at that time incidental to present circumstance or not, doesn’t matter; that is to say if Rich was initially silenced for the leak to send a message, or silenced to remove a dupe, is immaterial to the present moment. Either way, Rich’s removal is part and parcel of what enabled the framing of Trump and Wikileaks for ‘Russian collusion.’ That’s a big piece of the ‘problematic witnesses’ solved for the people behind the making a patsy of Russia. It is entirely possible the DNC leak was initially a MOSSAD operation (Trump has been Bibi’s wet dream) and Rich was gunned down by Brennan’s CIA, with a ‘Russian collusion’ follow-on or the neo-liberal intelligence agency faction’s attempt to reverse the damage. A second possibility (the one I favor) is the leaked DNC mails by a duped Seth Rich reflects the internecine warfare between neocon and neoliberal elements in American intelligence. A third (least likely, in view of developments, but still plausible) possibility is, Rich’s had been an unmanipulated, straight-foward motivation based in a rather ‘naive idealism’ (victim of a Wikileaks bait and hook.)

Michael Hastings, whose car of its own will, took upon itself a desire to run into a tree at high speed and explode with the force of a military grade limpet mine, had been 1) investigating then CIA Director John Brennan, 2) in contact with Wikileaks, and 3) writing for RollingStone [14], all shortly before he died. A lesson Taibbi and his editors at RollingStone have taken to heart? It is no stretch of the imagination, at all, to assume Taibbi (and his employer) had subsequently been put on notice ‘you will take our script and run with it or die.’ The alternative is, RollingStone, editors & writers, had suddenly morphed into incredibly stupid parties who, by pure coincidence, appear to follow diktat and promote the intelligence agency line. Which do you think is more likely? Of course, it is also possible the insect species ignavum nominare [15] had crawled up Taibbi’s butt altogether independently of any specific threat.

Pointing towards wrapping this up, with turning our attention to Wikileaks per se, the following question must be posed: how is it certain alternative media stars miss that Julian Assange was a critical gear in the intelligence agencies (primarily CIA & MOSSAD) information operations responsible for the ‘Arab Spring’ … leading to not only revolution and counter-revolution in Egypt but also the overthrow of Gaddafi and the Syrian so-called ‘civil war.’ [16] How do Chris Hedges (RT’s On Contact), Caitlin Johnstone (medium.com), Glenn Greenwald (The Intercept), Vanessa Beeley (21st Century Wire), Raul Ilargi Meijer (Automatic Earth), and Elizabeth Vos (Disobedient Media), among others, with their defense of Assange, drive the ‘Assange is a good guy’ square peg into the round hole of Wikileaks assisting intelligence agencies geopolitical engineering the so-called Arab Spring? [17] This is also a question certain Wikileaks personalities should be asking themselves, notably Baltasar Garzon, Jennifer Robinson, and Craig Murray.

A second question the Wikileaks staff should be asking, among themselves is, whose strategy is it to conceal THE critical information, information that can only be helpful to Assange when it is made public: the method and source used by Wikileaks to acquire the DNC mails? Is this concealment a strategy of Sarah Harrison? Does Wikileaks have an uncompromised, professional counter-intelligence unit? Because if you don’t, you’re not only a lot of stooges, the lot of you are ultimately stupid. Take a lesson from Amnesty International:

“My conclusion was that a high-level official of Amnesty International at that time, whom I will not name, was a British intelligence agent. Moreover, my fellow board member, who also investigated this independently of me, reached the exact same conclusion. So certainly when I am dealing with people who want to work with Amnesty in London, I just tell them, “Look, just understand, they’re penetrated by intelligence agents, U.K., maybe U.S., I don’t know, but you certainly can’t trust them” [18]

Finally, when it comes to what Russia HAS done, it is to use their propaganda [19] to ‘flip’ the ‘Assangemania’ [20] infecting the Western alternative press, in a disingenuous way so as to promote Assange as a straight-foward example of a persecuted whistle-blower by the corrupt fascism of Western institutions, but this strategy ultimately props up ‘the Russians did it’ Western intelligence propaganda lie; and one wonders when the Russian press will get this. Assange’s currency as an asset is exhausted, no matter which side of the contest is taking advantage.

Syria-Chlorine

The 120 MM caliber mortar is employed across the world and is manufactured on both sides of the former ‘cold war’ divide, including the Americans, French, Russians and Israelis. This caliber mortar delivery system would be available to both sides in Syria’s so-called ‘civil war.’

In this newest ‘chemical warfare’ incident, the so-called ‘rebels’ (actually NATO & associated allied states clandestine al-Qaida mercenaries-allies) have already maintained they have no delivery system (capability to produce suitable shells) and no doubt this will be the western intelligence agencies line delivered to the liberal democracies several leaders. But when this ‘conclusion’ is reached and vomited up to the American audience by the CIA media whores Washington Post and New York Times, firstly it should be recalled cashes of unused 120 MM shells, suitable for delivery of chemical weapons, were found littered across Iraq, by the Americans, over a period of years following the invasion of 2003, likely a legacy of the Iran-Iraq war of the 1980s. Furthermore, Islamic State arms depots overrun and captured in recent years have yielded the same. It follows, the predictable, upcoming propaganda line notwithstanding (next paragraph), it would be no stretch of the imagination at all, were the Russian military experts, on location in Syria, to determine al-Qaida (al Nusra, alias Hayat Tahrir Ash-Sham) had delivered chlorine gas to an Aleppo neighborhood via 120 MM mortar on Saturday, 24 November 2018 (in fact they have made that determination.)

The predictable, upcoming propaganda aspect is little different to imagining revivalist preachers Edward Bernays and Josef Goebbels addressing Orwell’s sheep in a big tent on the White House lawn; with Queen of Ewes Melania Trump in attendance, properly horrified at the idea of an NGO named ‘We Can’t Save The Children.’ The Donald understands he won’t get his “toadstool” (Stormy’s description) wet again unless he ‘deals with’ the “animal Assad” (my satire instinct, sorry, but that’s the IQ level of the White House soap opera playing out in DC.) So, the animal Assad, knowing full well any chemical attack will draw the liberal democracies military into the conflict, gasses neighborhoods under his control just to accomplish … duh … damage to his own assets and resources. It just doesn’t work like that.

More seriously, one is strongly inclined to wonder (not without reason) whether the several Western intelligence agencies, not least Macron’s DGSE, are undertaking the sabotage of Trump with another NATO-al-Qaida allied false-flag chemical attack in Syria, knowing full well Trump cannot control the media (information operations) narrative, and are pushing him into a confrontation with Russia that neither Trump nor Putin wants or possibly can benefit from.

The timing is quite interesting for diverse reasons, 1) Russia, Iran and Turkey are scheduled to meet on Syria 28 November. 2) Turkey has attempted the clandestine but very effective deliberate failing of its’ commitment to Russia to contain and control the rebel elements in Idlib Province, where in fact the several rebel organizations have united under the leadership of al-Qaida and not least, 3) as if to predict this newest false-flag chemical weapons use and resultant plausible conflict between ‘punitive’ NATO and Syria aligned Russian forces, the French had only days previous dispatched their state-of-the-art electronics warfare ship to the Eastern Mediterranean, recalling the recent downing of the Russian SIGINT plane with blame assigned to Israel but more than coincidentally, a French missile frigate had been in the mix of the action.

This is a big ‘upping the ante’ folks, let’s hope any ‘fallout’ is benign –

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

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

Wallechinsky concludes

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

http://www.minareport.com/2017/08/22/cias-jess-baily-used-macedonias-dbk-to-wiretap-serbian-diplomats/

…in relation to new provocations in Kosovo with its’ sudden 100% tax on all Serbian products (a boon to mafia smugglers) and where the authorities have been instructed to remove products from what will almost certainly be singled out ethnic Serbian shops:

“Authorities were also told to remove … products from shelves if they did not refer to the Republic of Kosovo”

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-46287975

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

“Today, nation states should, I would say must – be prepared to give up their sovereignty,” Merkel said, speaking an event organized by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Berlin on Wednesday devoted to the topic of ‘Parliamentarism Between Globalism and National Sovereignty'”

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

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

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

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

This story has to do with 1) denial, 2) conspiracy and/or 3) coverup. In any of the preceding, or combinations thereof, the underlying principle driving this vacuous media non-event is cowardice.

Beginning with a flashback to another case involving the German extreme right, where there had been initial, strong, circumstantial evidence radicalized German police were involved in the murder of a policewoman, Michèle Kiesewetter, by an ideologically similar Nazi terrorist cell (helped coordinate her murder) and the case was finally buried after:

“Heinz Fromm, then the president of the BfV [German FBI], voluntarily resigned in 2012 after it became known that files related to the NSU had been destroyed shortly after the group’s existence became public. Any remaining BfV files on the NSU have been redacted or remain under lock and key. Some others were destroyed, even after the investigation had begun” [1]

The NSU terrorists has been a serial killer cell targeting immigrants across Germany, but with this policewoman a glaring exception:

“The Bild tabloid … reported that the two NSU terrorists, Uwe Böhnhardt and Uwe Mundlos, had for days been lying in wait for the police officer in vain, because she had suddenly decided to spend a holiday with her mother. But on April 25, 2007, Kiesewetter telephoned the department where she worked in Heilbronn, asking to be placed on patrol. According to the duty roster, she should have been off.

“Böhnhardt and Mundlos subsequently extended the lease on their caravan home. The newspaper asked: “Did they receive a tip-off?” Could it possibly have come from the two police officers with ties to the [German chapter] Ku Klux Klan, one of whom was Kiesewetter’s boss?” [2]

With that all wrapped up and neatly buried by Angela Merkel’s BfV (federal police), the two ultra-right German cops, who well may have (likely did) assist in the murder of their colleague, kept their jobs after relevant investigative files had been destroyed; we come to today’s story that actually had been broken just after midnight or 00:25 AM Friday morning Central Europe Time by the online edition of FOCUS Magazine [3] where it is reported (this portion of the article translated to English)

“In the investigative case of [lieutenant] Franco A. the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) has apparently developed evidence of a larger conspiratorial network of radical survivalists, i.e. people preparing for a possible end of the world, within the German army. FOCUS reports and refers to investigation files of the BKA.

“Indeed, there appears to be numerous connections to an association for elite soldiers and members of the special forces command (KSK). According to eyewitnesses, in chat groups and at real meetings of survivalists, there were concrete plans for a so-called “Day X”, “to send unpopular politicians to a place of executions”.

“In addition, secret weapons depots and fuel storage have been created, reports FOCUS. On a death list not yet found, the leader of the Left Party in the Bundestag, Dietmar Bartsch, should be at the top. As part of the investigation last year, the house of a Rostock local politician and lawyer was searched. A [military counter-intelligence] lieutenant colonel obstructed the investigation”

As I am writing this, it is nearly 48 hours since the story broke. It has been picked up by British and Russian press [4], [5], [6], [7] beginning more than 24 hours ago but apparantly not in German publications other than FOCUS, who broke the story. By the time of Sunday’s English editions of Deutsche Welle, Handelsblatt, The Local and The Munich Eye, there is no mention of a story where a cell amounting to around 200 of Germany’s elite soldiers have a parallel structure in place, provisioned  and armed, so far consisting of (identified as) officers and senior non-commissioned officers up to the rank of colonel; with a concrete mission to slaughter immigrants and politicians.

All of the headlines are WWI armistice covering politicians sanctimonious speeches whilst ignoring the very necrosis infecting their institutions that had led to incredible bloodbaths of the past, and this habit had preceded both WWI and the subsequent Nazis, for instance the German slaughter of Namibians. [8]

So, what’s the delay in the reporting? Too embarrassing to spoil Merkel’s visits to sprawling graveyards, with soldiers’ headstones as far as one can see? Is the larger German press waiting for some guidance, for instance Merkel’s government must meet first and decide on proper spin? Not immediately newsworthy? Oh, and although this case uncovering the military cell is over a year old with the colonel’s case (very quietly) before a court, the relevant parliamentary oversight was never informed? That certainly smells wrong.

Judging by how the murder of Michèle Kiesewetter had been handled, don’t hold you breath the closet Nazi [9] institutions of Angela Merkel’s government will clean out this necrosis. After all, this investigator (your’s truly) handed what amounted to the European chapter of the present day Gladio [10] head (a ton of actionable intelligence that was suppressed) on a platter to the German police, and the political players at the top appear to have simply stitched that head back onto the body of the criminal organization. [11]

The black & white of it is, Germany has never shed its Nazi spots or this military terrrorist cell would have been broken up long ago. What a pity the honest low and mid-level cops work is ultimately undermined and suppressed at the top, in circumstance where that tired Flanders mare Merkel hasn’t the nerve to sack people surrounding her and bring in honest law enforcement to pull up the evil at the root.

The historical lesson in this? We can credit Napoleon for unifying the German states, enabling Bismarck to subsequently school a majority of the Germans into proper lock-step Prussian mentalities who, ostensibly put in their place after WWII, can nonetheless employ their intelligence services to contribute towards chaos in Syria and Ukraine… meanwhile Merkel says nothing when Macron speaks out and rehabilitates the Nazi collaborator Marshal Petain. [12]

This is a f’d up Europe folks, and if you don’t see the rot, even when  you can smell it, it is because the dead material of the European leaders’ ethics is concealed as matter of habit. The mere facts Merkel is a pastor’s daughter with a degree in physics cannot confer courage or a soul.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Meet NATO’s Trojan Horse

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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