So, lawyer Sidney Powell says CIA Director Gina Haspel had to have known the Dominion election software was open to manipulation and should have warned against its use in the USA election. In fact it appears that in one county Dominion’s ‘smartmatic’ flipped 6,000 Trump votes to Biden which is a 12,000 vote differential (minus 6,000 to Trump becoming plus 6,000 to Biden.)  If this happened on a single occasion, it should warrant all Dominion machine tallied votes recounted by hand.

Well, as a matter of fact, election software (as of the past two decades) is historically how the USA manipulates some elections, not only at home, but especially abroad (and how ‘independent’ foreign entities manipulate their own elections.) Powell is spot on. How would Powell know this? One fairly straight up assumption would be Powell represents a former major intelligence agency head, that is Mike Flynn, erstwhile boss of the Defense Intelligence Agency. Flynn knows where the bodies are buried.

Has it really happened in the USA before? Oh yes, the Diebold machines:

Voting machine fraud had been used in the Bush Jr era. As well, Ron Paul complained it was the reason he lost in Republican primaries:

So it is the Trump slime machine has busted the Biden & Never Trump Republican slime machine by calling out the Dominion voting machine fraud. Where does it all fit together (or come apart, as the case may be?) Well, Trump’s people have broken the unwritten rules (or unpublished rules) by calling out the CIA’s expertise in manipulating (nominally foreign) elections and Sidney Powell has apparently been provided all the technical information necessary to bring it all together for judicial review:

Then, for my readers exterior to the USA, where has ‘Dominion’ (sounds like empire) ‘smartmatic’ been busy? Lots of places, like Georgia, Pakistan, Ecuador, Venezuela, The European Union, and many more.

Back to the USA, essentially what we have here is, the deep state internecine war is breaking the surface like circling shark dorsal fins in an upcoming feeding frenzy. Somebody smells blood and likely it is the stealth infiltrators of the Trump administration represented in Mike Pence, Mike Pompeo, William Barr (a double agent) et al, & allied Pentagon faction, read the Doug Coe cult, who most certainly won’t need the petty mobster Trump anymore, once the Biden/Soros ‘victory’ is overturned (depending on the deep state judges and perhaps ultimately whether Trump’s Supreme Court political appointees stab him in the back in concert with deep state lawyer (double agent) Rudy Giuliani deliberately screwing up Trump’s legal arguments and neglecting evidence.)

23 Nov 2020 update: At the Georgia recount we see emerging evidence of what you’d expect to see if voting machine fraud had been involved and the hand ‘recount’ had to be matched with the machine tally:

“It was of particular interest to me that hundreds of these ballots seemed impeccable, with no folds or creases. The bubble selections were perfectly made (all within the circle), only observed selections in black ink, and all happened to be selections for Biden” -Affidavit of Democratic election observer

As well, Giuliani appears to be running cover for this fraud and has now thrown Sidney Powell (& his client Trump) under the bus. HERE & HERE

No matter which camp ultimately prevails in this complex of deceits, the other camp’s rank and file (the voters) will be convinced they’d been cheated; when in fact they all get cheated, everyone loses regardless.

The red states’ conservatives are being driven to a deep (superstitious) conservatism of a distant past due to a real subliminal fear of a ‘liberal’ cultural revolution being imposed upon them, the blue states’ liberals are becoming radicalized (into intolerant ‘woke’) because they perceive a revanchist conservatism threat imposing what they consider are archaic social values on themselves in turn. No matter which side prevails, the police state wins (until it all finally and overwhelmingly tears itself apart.)

The Western ‘civilized’ human nature hasn’t really changed much in two and half thousand years:

“The tyrant, to hold onto his power, suppresses every superior thinker, does away with good men, forbids knowledge & enlightenment, controls every movement of the citizens and, keeping them in perpetual servitude, wants them to grow accustomed to baseness and cowardice, has his spies everywhere to listen to what is said in meetings, spreads dissension & slanders among the citizens and thereby impoverishes them, and is obliged to make war in order to keep his subjects occupied & impose on them permanent need of a supreme leader” -Aristotle

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.

It’s as simple as a case of super-liar versus super-liar. It’s what Trump is surrounded by as noted by Thomas Paine over two centuries ago:

“It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind, as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe, he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime”

Insofar as the super-liars, it is also Trump, it was Obama before Trump and Bush before Obama, Clinton, Bush 41, Reagan, Carter, Ford, Nixon and LBJ before that.

JFK was likely the last to truthfully try to get a grip on the forces of empire and that didn’t work out so well, he was murdered by Allan Dulles in concert with too many accomplices to list here but you can always have a read of this…

My 1st experience with inspectors general was in 1971 Vietnam where the soldier’s complaints, that our good cafeteria food was being sold through military organized crime to markets and restaurants in the city of Vung Tau, were absolutely covered up by the military watchdog. When a congressman actually showed up to discover for himself what was going on, our meals became excellent for just a few days and then, with the congressman’s departure, our food reverted to nearly inedible survival rations.

My next experience with attorney generals was when investigating a criminal ring working the inside of government for Chevron Corporation, counterfeiting environmental impact statements for purpose of allowing oil and gas development to proceed in areas that should have been protected.

When provided hard documentation of multiple instance of the Forest Service inside cheating (the FBI refused to investigate) of laws to benefit the outside industry, the Department of Agriculture Inspector General simply evaded responsibility by pointing out these issues had been brought up in another bureaucratic channel in an appeal (to be decided by the Forest Service!)

So now, all of these years later, Trump fires the Department of State’s Inspector General Steve Linick and ‘Corona Trillions’ overseer (former Department of Justice Inspector General) Glenn Fine and it all still ties into my experience with the preceding case of the Forest Service, nearly thirty years on.

In short, after Chevron insider Condoleezza Rice became Bush Jr’s National Security Advisor, it would seem a ‘Chevron enemies’ list had transferred to the USA executive branch. It was in 2004 my house was searched without a warrant (while I was out of town) and it had become clear multiple investigations had been opened into my activities with specious rationale or on false pretexts.

This seemed odd as my investigative career had been closed for five years and it been thirteen years since the incriminating, investigative dossier on Chevron had been compiled and forwarded through several official channels. Looking into matters, by 2005 it became clear the source of the present harassment stemmed via local members of the Council on Foreign Relations, leaning on the area’s FBI field office and local law enforcement.

By 2006 it was determined by myself this was developing into one of those circumstance where the target (myself) was high priority and it would be best to get out of the USA.

My house sold in the early summer of 2007 and I left the USA on the pretext of attending a conference at Johannes Gutenberg University, but did not catch my return flight from Europe, and the attempted assassination game was on.

Glenn Fine was Department of Justice Inspector General in 2010 when I attempted to bring my case of the FBI apparently assisting the CIA (and possibly MOSSAD) with attempted assassination of myself. This stemmed from my work on the 1991 Chevron & Forest Service misconduct previously mentioned.

My experience with inspector generals is that of a rank fail, relating to the FBI’s egregious conduct in ‘investigating’ myself actually appears to have been opening my banking information (via ‘national security letter’) to Central Intelligence so my location could be tracked by ATM while I was on the run in Europe from Condoleezza’s (as far as it could be traced to the top) ‘kill list’ (prior to Obama and his Brennan kill list.)

When Obama came into office, the presidential ‘kill list’ became a matter of public record. There has been no known investigation into this by any inspector general, either Department of Justice or Department of State. My own case is well known in detail with as yet unanswered (after 10 years) request for a Department Of Justice Inspector General (Glenn Fine in 2010) look at my circumstance on Obama’s watch. Certainly in some circumstance the duopoly has each others’ backs.

What’s more is, during the tenure of Steve Linick, the Department of State’s Office of the Inspector General has made it as burdensome as possible to actually make contact and pursue whistle-blowing with a closed email system that refuses to recognize ‘unauthorized’ contacts (i.e. anyone outside the system or anyone who hasn’t been extended the ‘grace’ of their email address admitted into the system) rather demanding all process concerning complaints and related documentation be sent and replies accepted by fax or snail mail which (probably by design) insures the geolocation of the whistle-blower.

Even with the valid email address of the appropriate government officials to contact, if your email address is either unrecognized or recognized as someone they do not wish to interact with, the closed system will not allow your messages through. This was discovered by myself when I looked into making a complaint concerning egregious misconduct by certain Department of State officers when applying for routine services of a personal, family nature I will not divulge here.

These officers (almost certainly CIA under official cover) were so determined to deny certain rights in attempt to  force me to present myself in person, the end result is, there are two diametrically opposed decisions by separate USA embassies in two countries in Europe, one granting and the other denying, identical citizen services based on decisions where the one embassy granted the service based on lesser documentation than the embassy that denied the identical service based on stronger documentation!

The difference in the embassies? The granting embassy is in a ‘settled’ western European country where highly competent local professionals are incorporated into the citizen services staff in a small annex that would basically make a rendition impossible, whereas the denying embassy is a CIA infested organism located in a former socialist state that is a target of empire’s demands to conform, where there is a weak rule of law and the citizens services is located in a very large embassy compound from which renditions can be made with impunity.

Ultimately I declined to exercise my right to make a complaint of egregious misconduct by the Department of State to Steve Linick, fully understanding it would be an energy draining exercise in futility.

Essentially, the demand is, if you are the target of the USA, live in a former socialist state under threat of color revolution and also happen to be a USA citizen filing a complaint, paint a bull’s eye on your chest and only then step up with your incriminating information when whistle-blowing to the Department of State Inspector General.

What is different with the inspector generals now is, there is a deep state internecine war with the more overt evangelical/Israeli alliance pitted against the neo-liberal/never-Trump Republican alliance. But on either side, they are all bought and paid for American political pit bulls fighting behind the scenes in off record venues. Without exception, they’re all corrupt.

The difference between American empire run by Democrats & ‘Never Trump!’ Republicans versus the Christian Zionists & Israeli controlled Trump, is the difference between botched operations with & without anesthesia; with the former, the numb but nevertheless soon to be cadaver, lingers just a little longer, with the latter, panic, pain & shock contributes to a bit quicker demise.

This article first appeared at Fort Russ News

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.

Balkans Map - 1

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 [1], 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. [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.) [6] 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. [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 [9] is the son of Hitler’s last serving staff intelligence officer, Berndt Freytag von Loringhoven, [10] 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.’ [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 taken 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.

Successful imperialism requires a stupid citizenry.

This satire will be most interesting to (and better understood by) those intimately familiar with contemporary Balkans politics. It is my 1 April greeting to certain personalities working for the area’s ‘Chiefs of Station’

 

A Montenegro Satire

Milo Narcissus Gusle was from a family of villagers named for a drunken forebear who had been ‘challenged’ by a senior professor of some serious university academics from the city of ‘New’ Podgorica; to perform the symphony unique to the colony of ‘New’ Montenegro’s ethnicity.

Milo’s ancestor actually had brought off his performance quite well, while while on a wagon tongue hitched to a pair of nervous horses which he managed not to spook, swaying side to side until his instrument’s string broke … his fame for the event however, was the wild look of panic on this villager’s face, because this villager had never driven a team of horses.

The villager’s champion musical performance was purely survival driven which made the event all the more hilarious to the Western educated academics that had sent him onto the wagon at gunpoint. The Montenegrin senior professor’s sense of honor, his name was Obren Saša Urošević II (affectionately referred to as Junior OSU), declared himself honorary godfather to this now famous ‘Broken String Gusle’ musician and demanded the villager should be named this for this amazing ability to mimic Montenegro’s National String Symphony; and the villager would hereafter have to be known by his new name and answer to it.

Broken String Gusle agreed to the terms required to save his life while still on the wagon-tongue, and was subsequently allowed climb down both; before the horses had bolted and nearing sobriety, because he was about to collapse from pure nervous exhaustion. Consequently, Broken String Gusle’s descendant, Milo Narcissus Gusle, was from a family of villagers that did not drink. They knew better. He went to law school instead.

Nobody in OSU’s academic world knew how to create a ‘Village Life Studies’ program because in fact to postulate a program as such in the modern classroom was oxymoron. Heck, they did not even know that. Village Life Studies, if it was Montenegro’s villagers doing the studies, would consist of daydreams passed off as oral history, such as the time a remote Montenegrin ancestor actually had driven his wagon to go somewhere or do something, the sort of work fantasies from which all Montenegro’s village intelligence had been drawn. Milo Narcissus Gusle did not know how to daydream this sort of work, because he had been ‘urbanized’ from age five and then sent to university at Brussels.

By this time, Milo had mastered the provincial English linguistic trick of stating the just so “Sorry” for introducing a thought so simple as it’d be easier for his ancestors to walk to Tirana than to Sarajevo, because according to a terrestrial globe, the route to Tirana should be all downhill.

Milo was a conscientious sort, and so when his undergraduate major in ‘Village Life Studies’ was decided on, he returned to Montenegro for fieldwork in summers to familiarize himself with his ancestors’ cultural habits. But he did not realize that the answer to bring his university into line with the political correctness of the ‘new’ times had been to establish an ethnic studies program staffed by OSU type mentalities in people who’d been educated out of their subliminal and very old pagan habits, and call it ‘Village Life Studies.’ And so, Milo, like the countless educated but now pseudo-superstitious people of village descent, thought academia was real. He should have remembered the village proverb “Everyone knows the city people are crazy.” But Milo could not know this now applied to himself. So Milo questioned his former people’s elders to get ideas for his papers he would need to write in the discipline of anthropology disguised with the ‘Village Life Studies’ euphemism. And thought he was a villager. Woo-woo.

Milo went on to law school and eventually became Director of ‘Village Life Studies’ at Podgorica University which had been duly impressed with his achievements in the field of ‘OSU Treaty Law’, having nothing to do with actual law in reality, but which combined with the idea he could mimic village dialect, seemed to make him qualified to run the academic program.

Here at university he met the philosopher Gani Bobi and they had discussed Bobi’s irritation at failing to grasp why it had been noted as early as the 1980s the Balkans’ Orthodox villagers seemed to have no problem describing many phenomena of the OSU theoretical geopolitics, which the Western academics had difficulty coping with. Milo had no idea why either, but it seemed there must be something to it and so an annual dialogue was opened, and Milo became a politicized god. To at least three or four people.

Milo, now relocated and living in a townhouse in the better part of Podgorica, had continued with his anthropological interest in studying his former people and was particularly interested in their view of government before this had been subverted. His anthropological studies got him up and running on three legs in Montenegrin ways, like the proverbial Golden Jackal that had chewed off one leg to escape a trap, and that was about it.

Milo had by this time taken over the dialogue and thought he had some things figured out: Like how the old time villager oratory had worked. Not. What he attempted to replicate in fact became a lunatic caricature of what had been his ancestral wisdom. It was not meant to be evil and in fact it was not evil. It was merely stupid. But Milo could not know that.

By this time, these dialogues, with Gani Bobi now dead, had become sponsored by the OSU organization worshiped by Milo for the fact the OSU acronym represented precisely his ancestral godfather’s initials.

You would never know to which community of Milo’s ancestry he was loyal to, whether the chauvinism of his family godfather, Obren Saša Urošević II (affectionately referred to as Junior OSU), or the mocked Montenegrin villager, because this Milo sort of Jackal could only be loyal to himself.

Milo Narcissus Gusle’s ego was of a soft burnished sort, the kind of lovely passive-aggressiveness whose nasty aspect was presented in the effeminate dark side aroma of the flower he was named for. As a real villager, you just did not want to get too close to the self-assumed ‘villager’ Narcissus if you were to enjoy the genuine natural beauty of his expression. And so it also was with the OSU sponsored dialogues he so expertly organized for the world to know the truth of why the USA’s ‘Camp Toadstool’ threatened no havoc in the Balkans.

When Milo self-gazed into the reflective pool of soft loveliness in his ego, he could detect no offensive aroma. His ethnocidal nuance as applied to Montenegrin village thought and philosophy was of a much prettier and more refined sort than that established for his intellectual forebears in the psychological literature developed by Erich Fromm: who’d postulated the Nazis much enjoyed the smell of their own farts.

Advanced beyond the primitive camps and ovens, the ethnocidal ‘thrust’ of Milo’s ego-priapismic tendencies was to bring about the immolation of the village beliefs and thinking with grandiose graphics of impressionist urban imagery surrounded by tropical fruits & vegetables extrapolated to western print: advertising the many Brussels ‘Fudds’ (PhDs) he would gather alongside the ‘village experts’ in the Western anthropological science; in a grand orgy of psychosomatic, ego-stroking masturbation in high intellectual workshops or, better said, indoctrination in Soros’ multicultural discourse.

Some of the villagers fell for it in the beginning. It was attractive, because Milo, who could mimic their dialect, was master of ceremony and that fact, taken together with the promoted agenda of village life’s relationship to the OSU philosophy of geopolitics, convinced villagers in the the beginning they might benefit from learning something. Well, the villagers did learn some things, but they did not learn what had been expected, like a wider understanding of a future village life reality in relationship to geopolitical exploitation. The villagers learned only fiction had been offered by the OSU scientists and learned absolutely nothing from the PhD Montenegrins because they had no idea at all of how OSU geopolitics functionally worked.

Damn, it was sad. Not one PhD, not a single PhD from either side of the cultural divide, understood that to be a Montenegrin villager in thought and philosophy had absolutely nothing to do with exploitation. PhD. Wow. The OSU scientists were sometimes frustrated with the Podgorica University scientists who could only tell stories from village life in anthropology that were totally out of context and consequently nonsensical. That fact only made the Podgorica scientists equal to the OSU scientists totally out of context with village life, and consequently nonsensical, propaganda.

At first the villagers simply observed. After a few years the villagers contributed a little bit of real village thinking and frightened Milo because it looked as though the entire event could be shown up as a case of ‘The Emperor Has No Clothes!’ Then, the villagers had tried to explain to Milo how some things could change to open up the dialogues to real learning, like getting smart and dis-inviting OSU but those who spoke out were put up against a wall and shot. No upsetting the Brussels-based corporate gravy train of ego allowed here!

Rather the ‘face’ of the event was to be preserved at all costs, a portrait of the mysterious and knowledgeable geopolitician, Milo, presiding over a dialogue that might one day yield his great secrets held in abeyance: to his lesser village beings and the handful of toadying, sycophant academics who peered upon his OSU holiness with expressions of Heavenly reverence as though they were alter-boys seated upon the left and right hands of God. In fact, it appeared to the villagers that Milo didn’t know shit. Milo only knew how to rest on his laurels from his Village Life Studies directorship at Podgorica University, look important, and, invite the villagers to a future life of employment in the Ikea cafeteria; to which the Montenegrin villagers replied: Work! Are you serious? We could never be made to work for the Turks, how would we ever be made to work for you?

Milo is still searching for his answer but not to worry, eventually OSU will think hard and provide it for him but, of course, it will be the wrong one…

CIA, Google, Crowdstrike & the DNC non-hack

I’d noticed on 8 February that Russian news (Sputnik) had sucked up a propaganda misdirection fed to the (more usually) intrepid John Solomon, raising a question, why this story now? That Manafort’s ‘Black Ledger’ was a forgery is old news. The only thing new here is, the suggested idea the ‘Black Ledger’ might have ‘Made in Ukraine’ stamped somewhere on it in fine print:

[Rick Gates] “account … raises the possibility that someone fabricated the document in Ukraine […] its uncertain origins raise troubling questions about election meddling and what constitutes real evidence worthy of starting an American investigation” [1], [2]

Excuse me, but this is like trying to conceal Frankenstein’s sutures with a band-aid. Where Solomon has been misdirected to in regards to Ukraine election meddling, the so-called Manafort ‘Black Ledger’, is penny-ante poker by comparison to what has been spread all over the recent news on the subject of Ukraine and election meddling: President Trump’s call to Ukrainian President Zelensky requesting investigation into CrowdStrike:

CrowdStrike - 1

^ All of the top Google search results (and for pages after) are about Trump hitting up Zelensky to investigate a ‘debunked conspiracy theory.’ But wait a minute. When the top result is the New York Times demanding we all ignore a story as ‘fake news’, it’d be more than intuitive to look into the matter deeper. Especially when google’s habit in uncomfortable matters (to the status quo) is burying opposed results, via so-called ‘search engine optimization’, there’s a dark side to this, as well recalling Tulsi Gabbard’s lawsuit. [3], [4]

To begin, we have a look at who really does not want you looking into the CrowdStrike story: That would be Google. Google began as a Central Intelligence Agency funded start-up:

“Seed-funded by the NSA and CIA, Google was merely the first among a plethora of private sector start-ups co-opted by US intelligence to retain ‘information superiority’” 

“The origins of this ingenious strategy trace back to a secret Pentagon-sponsored group, that for the last two decades has functioned as a bridge between the US government and elites across the business, industry, finance, corporate, and media sectors. The group has allowed some of the most powerful special interests in corporate America to systematically circumvent democratic accountability and the rule of law to influence government policies, as well as public opinion in the US and around the world” [5], [6]

By now, google is absolutely one of the intelligence world’s ‘big boys’ and where are they putting their (2015) money?

“Security startup Crowdstrike is expected to announce a $100 million investment from Google Capital next week, a person close to the company told Business Insider, although this source did not reveal the valuation.
CrowdStrike was founded by two ex-McAfee execs in 2011. It offers a cloud tool that helps governments and enterprises discover and stop an attack as it it occurring” [7]

Humnn, who did Business Insider fail to name?

Alperovitch - 1

The Business Insider article excerpt (at [7], preceding the illustration) fails to name CrowdStrike’s co-founding executive, Dimitry Alperovich, who happens to be an anti-Putin Yeltsen era Russian expat (moved to the USA in his early teens) within a present day web that ties to Ukrainian oligarch Victor Pinchuk, Hillary Clinton, Burisma (the Bidens’ thing), an Adam Schiff staffer (!), Robert Mueller (a long time CIA asset, notable for framing Libya for Lockerbie and sandbagging the BCCI money laundering investigation into the CIA’s Iran Contra arms and narcotics trafficking), and is a fellow at the Atlantic Council (the organized Atlanticist lobby, these days mostly a Putin-bashing club.) [8], [9], [10], [11], [12], [13]

Well, what to do with all of that?

$100 million in 2015 from CIA mega-asset Google (run by a super Clinton fan) to an Atlantic Council Fellow/cyber security expert tied to a Ukrainian billionaire & Burisma, with the Clintons & Bidens stirred into the mix and wellah, less than a year later Putin hacked the DNC which is actually a fairy tale. [14], [15], [16], [17]

Recalling this newsworthy rant begins with John Solomon calling for initiating an American investigation into the old news about Manafort and the fake ‘Black Ledger’ that had possibly been initiated in Ukraine and Sputnik getting a case of hot pants over the story, one wonders where Solomon believes any such investigation might go. The direction Mueller took the Lockerbie investigation when framing Libya? The direction Mueller took the BCCI investigation when protecting CIA Iran-Contra arms and narcotics trafficking? Mueller refusing to act on a mountain of evidence amassed by law enforcement naming Enrique Prado as a serial killer for a drug cartel because Prado was also a high ranking CIA officer? The direction Mueller took the Russiagate investigation when he took CrowdStrike’s word as gospel and never seriously investigated ‘the Russians did it’ DNC mails hack story? All of these stories wrap up under the CIA’s erstwhile Poppa Bush (41) and now Trump’s Attorney General William Barr. Oops. It follows, Trump’s real problem with begging anywhere/everywhere for an investigation into CrowdStrike just might be someone who works for him.

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.’

“I knew Seth Rich. I know he was the Wikileaks source. I was involved

“If Congress includes #SethRich case into their Russia probe I’ll give written testimony with evidence that Seth Rich was Wikileaks source” -Kim Dotcom [12]

2019 had been unremarkable for the fact of pervasive political lying continues to unfold as though there could never be any ‘awakening’ (nothing changes.) The CIA initiated Mueller ‘special counsel’ caper pits one set of liars off another set of liars as though truth were anti-evolutionary in the American political construct. The sad fact is, that’s the truth of the matter; political lies have been part and parcel of the American social construct since the beginning, recalling Thomas Paine:

“It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind, as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe, he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime”

Try as one might, there is no better description of Congress on either side of the aisle to be found by this reporter in Congress’ ongoing provocations of Russia. Congress is the abscess at the center of the infection, it matters not where the infection began; it is the Congress appropriates the money applied to the insanity of it all. Whether the information operations (PsyOps) demonizing Russia, the intelligence agencies related lying through their teeth about the disposition of certain events having to do with USA elections, or the Pentagon painting a dire picture of an ‘aggressive Russia’ requiring historic outlay of money (even as the USA military muppet NATO has marched itself to Russia’s borders, deploys permanent bases and engages in offensive war games), and, of course, military industrial lobbyists providing what can only be described as a kickback when one recalls it is prior appropriations is the source of the money that corporations return to Congress. In other words, prior contracts awarded on a profit basis are what enable corporations to send lobbyists to convince future Pentagon contracts should be awarded in what amounts to a ‘wine & dine’ feeding frenzy of cannibal maggots [1]

2018_lobbyist_$ - 1

Congress appropriates, Pentagon awards, corporate profits fund lobbyists in endless cycle. What is remarkable is how cheaply our congressmen are bought; considering the outlay in lobbyist money compared to the amount of maggot infested ‘bacon’ returned:

“Major components of the NDAA [National Defense Authorization Act] were a $635 billion allocation for Department of Defense and Department of Energy national security programs, $71.5 billion for overseas contingency operations (OCO, or fighting in foreign wars) and $5.3 billion to repair damage caused by extreme weather and natural disasters. The Defense Department’s full fiscal year 2020 budget totals $738 billion, an increase of $22 billion ($3.1%) year over year” [2]

Creating boogeymen is essential to keep this cycle alive. In this case, the NDAA also pumping 300 million for Ukraine’s military into this following legacy that had finally devolved to alliance with the Nazi’s in WWII (Stephan Bandera’s SS Galician Nazi army division) eventually leading to these same Nazis taking control of Ukraine in 2014 is not going to be appreciated by the Russians:

“The aim of the Austrian [Austro-Hungarian Empire’s] policy was to forever sever the internal ties between the Rusyn elite and the common Russian culture. For this purpose, for more than half a century considerable funds from the State budget were constantly allocated for printing publications preaching hatred towards Russia and artificially created Ukrainian nationalism. Not only national teachers, but also all the representatives of the intellectuals who were in direct contact with the population: doctors, agronomists, veterinarians, and others, were taught in the anti-Russian spirit using State grants.

“The refusal of the Russian self-identification became an obligatory condition for acceptance for public service, which also included educational institutions of all levels – from elementary schools to universities. And the fight against “Moscowphiles” was set as the main task for all the numerous Austrian State apparatus in Galicia” [today’s Western Ukraine] [3], [4]

And so it is, the USA Congress’ NDAA for 2020 includes pumping 300 million into exploiting a 200 years ongoing effort of Western empire, over several incarnations, to create instability, hostility and Russophobe enemies within Russia’s Western border regions, through the purposeful alienation of what had been Russia’s common cultural entities, and this is construed to be “countering Russian aggression.”

This incredible deceit or ‘subscribing professional belief to things he does not believe’ must, of course, be attended by information operations constituting what is in fact a manifestation of ‘the commission of every other crime.”

In this regard we enter 2020 with the ‘impeachment’ drama manifesting liars in every direction one looks, there is no single clean avenue to be found, whether in America’s Democrats, Republicans, mainstream or alternative media, the related EU & NATO nations’ political and information organs or ‘adversarial’ Russia itself. Of the more lying circumstance than this writer cares to note here, one circumstance is selected to illustrate an aggregate deceit of monstrous proportion, the impeachment relationship to the Russian ‘hack’ of the 2016 election.

 “who was at worst a Russian spy and at best a Russian stooge” ? [5]

As things turn out (in what can only be a damage control scramble), Carter Page was actually a CIA asset framed by an FBI lawyer, Kevin Clinesmith, when the FBI’s ‘Russiagate’ star chamber applied for FISA Court rubber stamp on a secret spying warrant. IF one CAN believe that, on its’ face it would seem the FBI screwed a CIA attempt to use the Trump campaign to penetrate the Kremlin, the complete reverse of Russians using the Trump campaign’s ‘collusion’ to penetrate the USA political establishment. Oh my.

It was only two short years previous, ‘Shifty Schiff’ (based on the so-called ‘Steele Dossier’) had demanded to know whether Page had met with “Kremlin linked professor” Joseph Mifsud and that’s where things get interesting. [6]

Joseph Mifsud’s lawyer has stated Misfud “was being directed, had long worked for Western intelligence, that he was being directed specifically, that he was asked to connect George Papadopoulos to Russia, meaning it was an operation, some form of an intelligence operation. That was his lawyer’s own words for this. If that’s the case, it means the flashpoint for starting this whole investigation was in fact manufactured from the beginning” [7]

The choice of words “western intelligence” is a little ambiguous but considering the ‘Steele Dossier’ had been ‘made in UK’, moving just a bit further on, it is clearly Her Majesty’s boogers are to be found in this recipe of ‘spook soup.’

“Over the last few months, Professor Joseph Mifsud has become a feather in the cap for those pushing the Trump-Russia narrative. He is characterized as a “Russian” intelligence asset in mainstream press, despite his declarations to the contrary. However, evidence has surfaced that suggests Mifsud was anything but a Russian spy, and may have actually worked for British intelligence. This new evidence culminates in the ground-breaking conclusion that the UK and its intelligence apparatus may be responsible for the invention of key pillars of the Trump-Russia scandal” [8]

So, we have  a second one hundred eighty degrees reversal, following on Carter Page had been a CIA (not Russian) asset, now we discover “Kremlin linked professor” Joseph Mifsud, more likely than not, worked for the British intelligence services. I mean, man, what’s to do with that?

Well, any half competent investigator should be able to hit a home run, batting right handed, over the left field fence, with what comes next.

The entire butt-load of lies the ‘Russiagate’ rests on, pivots on the accusation it was Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee and this is presumed to be the material Mifsud alluded to when he informed George Papadopoulos the Russians had dirt on the Clinton campaign. Papadopoulos repeated this to an Australian ambassador, and in what appears to have been a set-up, the ambassador trotted the information to American authorities and all of this supposedly buttressed the out & out fake “Steele Dossier” that should have sunk the Trump campaign for POTUS. But it not only didn’t work, but because it didn’t work, it can’t be made to go away. That aspect is kindergarten forensic science.

What appears may have happened is, would be something like this: the deep state Clintonista faction backing Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan didn’t have the pull needed within his own (historically arch-conservative) agency to pull off the hit job on Trump’s campaign on behalf of the neoliberals so Brennan enlisted the British in what became a cellularized-hybrid operation (British intel x Brennan’s neoliberal cell.) Meanwhile (the promptly assassinated) Seth Rich had taken the DNC mails out of that organization’s server on a memory stick and sold the material to WikiLeaks (likely ‘facilitated’ by MOSSAD, Trump/Pence has been an Israeli wet dream.) [9]

Alerted to the DNC mails heist, subsequently, the ‘Russian Hack’ had been concocted by the neoliberals in British intelligence and handed to the Clintonistas at the FBI who colluded with CrowdStrike in the invention of Guccifer 2.0 but this story is too hot to let out of the bag because if it breaks open, the collateral damage would not only be widely geopolitical but could possibly result in a very few lonely lampposts in DC, the entire congress has been in the business of promoting this lie. And that is almost certainly why the pivotal but vanished Joseph Mifsud had to be made to ‘go away’ as a witness. [10]

Now, take a deep breath and consider this next: William Barr is a longtime CIA asset who’d actually worked for the agency in his early career and is notable for two events in his first stint as Attorney General (for career CIA operative George H.W. Bush), working to contain the Iran Contra debacle (inclusive of recommending pardons for Poindexter et al) but more importantly, crushing (includes assassination) investigation into the ‘Boys Town’ pedophilia scandal that led directly to the White House. This second instance no longer seems a far-fetched accusation in light of the recent Jeffery Epstein ‘expiration.’ [11], [12]

Bush41-call-boys

It follows, not only is long time CIA asset William Barr (damage control expert) engaged in ‘re-misdirecting’ the entire false narrative, Trump personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s big mouth indicates this ‘re-misdirection’ is intended to frame the Ukrainians for framing the Russians on behalf of Brennan; in place of what had actually been a framing of the Russians by Brennan’s neoliberal faction in concert with British intelligence. This recent angle includes blackmailing Wikileaks into supporting the new false narrative, Wikileaks plays ball or Assange is buried. As well, the British would be badly burned if the actuality were known and no one knows where and how it all morphs from the end of 2019; in the warring factions contest. That’s the world of spooks. [13], [14]

So, what’s up with the Russian end in all of this? They probably don’t know what to do. As geopolitically unstable the entire business is, unwinding it, engineering the ‘Russiagate’ facts into the open, would be even more destabilizing. Then, there is a complicating factor where Russian propaganda has become deeply invested in creating a mythology of ‘Assange the crucified truth-teller’ when ‘flipping’ the Western propaganda narrative back onto itself. [15], [16]

Likely the Russians would be ok with ‘re-framing’ the false narrative onto the Nazis in Ukraine and the conservative faction at CIA recognizes (perhaps has even been communicated) this. That ‘truth telling’ Wikileaks has never openly acknowledged the facts surrounding Seth Rich would seem to play to what should be Russian concerns (and brings into question Wikileaks associate Craig Murray’s .ru email address, I’d put the full address here but that’d be opening to a ‘doxing’ accusation.) [17]

Moving on, a rare truth from a spook who essentially admits the near invincibility of the intelligence agencies’ reputations is so much myth:

“If the Mossad had to pay fines for operations it carried out over the years that failed, the state treasury would collapse” [18], [19]

Moving to conclude ronaldthomaswest.com’s 2019 end of year message and notes, just a short paragraph on stats, following on the 2018 end of year message and blog performance. As is the case each year, it is noted ‘who’ is reading is more important, by far, than raw numbers. 2019 is lower in overall numbers but not by much, a drop of about 5,000 hits or 2018’s rounded off 42,500 to 2019’s projected 37,500. There was a noticeable drop in the fall of 2019, when I’d turned my attention to a Native American project or translating pre-Columbian thought to modern (with attending few months sabbatical from geopolitics.) As predicted at the end of 2018, in 2019 a lampoon of CIA torture – Alfreda Bikowsky & The Definition of Stupid – showing (in a case with indisputable statistics) information derived from torture is actually worse than useless, became this blog’s all time most read piece, receiving multiple hits nearly every day after five full years.

To Gina Haspel’s behind the scenes in Langley, Virginia, that’s all folks!

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!)
