Disclaimer: Just in case James Comey’s FBI doesn’t get it, this IS a satirical cartoon that does NOT support terrorism, and especially does not support NATO’s Gladio B false-flag terror:
This post makes a case Dennis Kucinich knew exactly what he was talking about when he stated:
“An effort by some in the intelligence community to upend any positive relationship between the USA and Russia … there are people trying to separate the USA and Russia so this military-industrial intel [ligence] axis can cash in … There’s a game going on inside the intelligence community where there are those who want to separate the U.S. from Russia in a way that would reignite the Cold War”
In other words, a hostile relationship with Russia is good for business when you’re invested in Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics, Boeing, Ratheon, DuPont, Booz-Allen, Dow Chemical, Northrup Grumman et-cetera-ad-nausea.
Very few in the larger intelligence community are betting against the CIA in its present & ongoing, treasonous, war with a sitting President of the United States. Ostensibly, a case is being built against Trump, with CIA employing professional, carefully tailored, false flag information operations widespread in media, advancing the notion Trump and his administration cannot be trusted to possess sensitive intelligence without leaking this information to the Russians. What had begun as a clandestine services mutiny of Clinton aligned CIA efforts to derail Trump attaining the presidency, badly mishandled, is grown and spread.
What in actuality is going on now, is a concerted attack on the president by an intelligence community with a decades history of having its way in all things, to include a President of the United States in a deferential role, one could even make a case of compliant to subservience. This begins with if the CIA says something is so, such as Trump’s team is a danger to our national security, it must be the case; the CIA now joined in its mutiny by growing elements in the larger National Security estate, inclusive of those many corporate board personalities integrated to this estate, in growing consensus the ‘intelligence authority’ is not to be challenged:
“Over the last 15 years, thousands of former high-ranking intelligence officials and operatives have left their government posts and taken up senior positions at military contractors, consultancies, law firms, and private-equity firms. In their new jobs, they replicate what they did in government—often for the same agencies they left. But this time, their mission is strictly for-profit”
“From 2004 through 2008, 80 percent of retiring three- and four-star officers went to work as consultants or defense executives, according to the Globe analysis. That compares with less than 50 percent who followed that path a decade earlier, from 1994 to 1998.
“In some years, the move from general staff to industry is a virtual clean sweep. Thirty-four out of 39 three- and four-star generals and admirals who retired in 2007 are now working in defense roles — nearly 90 percent.
“And in many cases there is nothing subtle about what the generals have to sell — Martin’s firm is called The Four Star Group, for example. The revolving-door culture of Capitol Hill — where former lawmakers and staffers commonly market their insider knowledge to lobbying firms — is now pervasive at the senior rungs of the military leadership”
The pecuniary interest is plain as day; Trump has challenged both the defense industry and the intelligence community. The defense industry on the price of the F35 multi-role jet fighter and Trump has called out the intelligence community on its accusations of friendliness towards, and too cozy a relationship with, the Russians. This, following on the ‘Russians hacked the elections’ total nonsense coming from our CIA in deliberate effort by the agency to undermine Trump. But now, the word appears to be out to the former intelligence officers who’re in private intelligence contracting, to join in these propaganda efforts to protect the status quo:
“In a recent column, I explained how the still-forming Trump administration is already doing serious harm to America’s longstanding global intelligence partnerships. In particular, fears that the White House is too friendly to Moscow are causing close allies to curtail some of their espionage relationships with Washington—a development with grave implications for international security, particularly in the all-important realm of counterterrorism.
“Now those concerns are causing problems much closer to home—in fact, inside the Beltway itself. Our Intelligence Community is so worried by the unprecedented problems of the Trump administration—not only do senior officials possess troubling ties to the Kremlin, there are nagging questions about basic competence regarding Team Trump—that it is beginning to withhold intelligence from a White House which our spies do not trust”
Going to this immediate preceding, the intelligence community’s reach and leverage over the pecuniary self-interest of corporations is quite wide; exceeding the near total leverage intelligence agencies have over media in identical circumstance – and beyond private intelligence contractors staffed by agency veterans- where if you don’t toe the agency line, your bread and butter lifeline can be shut off with denial to access:
“Thousands of technology, finance and manufacturing companies are working closely with U.S. national security agencies, providing sensitive information and in return receiving benefits that include access to classified intelligence, four people familiar with the process said.
“These programs, whose participants are known as trusted partners, extend far beyond what was revealed by Edward Snowden, a computer technician who did work for the National Security Agency”
And then, you have intelligence websites have to choose sides and push the CIA’s neo-con agenda to let the agency know you are on board & willing to play ‘team’ ball:
“Discord and disharmony are not novel concepts in American political life. But the current situation is anything but conventional. It is not normal for the president to summarily fire the chief legal counsel to the US government —acting or not. Nor is it normal for his national security advisor, a man who is privy to the most sensitive secrets of the US government, to be the subject of a counterintelligence investigation, and for one of his senior aides to be denied a security clearance by the CIA. It is unprecedented for a US president to question the usefulness of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization while seemingly consenting to Russia’s annexation of an important American ally —namely Ukraine. It is equally remarkable to watch conservative governments in Western Europe warn against US policies and even refuse to have Mr. Trump address their parliaments. We are witnessing unparalleled developments of inconceivable magnitude, with implications that may well shape the future of America and its place in the world” [bold added, RTW]
Talk about piling the s**t on with a steam shovel named the great sycophant, the ‘Russia annexed Ukraine’ part is beyond political fellatio. Insofar as Ukraine, Kosovo was a weaker example but set a precedent. When the current Ukrainian regime came to power in what the head of STRATFOR had called “the most blatant coup in history” (correctly noted to have been directed by the Americans), Russia acted in its own strategic interest but also with a stronger argument than Kosovo’s enforced split from Serbia by NATO. Crimea had been Russia for 200 years prior to 1954 and its administrative transfer to Ukraine. It’s populace (as cited by the Russians’ in international law) were possessed of the ‘right of self determination’ and there was a referendum held every party to the controversy knew would favor Crimea returning to Russia. As for the Donbass region (southeast of Ukraine), the majority ethnic Russians want nothing to do with the coup government in Kiev. That shouldn’t surprise anyone as it was the leadership aligned with Russia was tossed in the coup. Insofar as corruption, both administrations were/are notorious. The only net gain was heightened tensions with Russia, good for the military-industrial business bottom line.
The western bloc suffers ineptitude and has show poor leadership & decision taking and much of the west’s problems with Russia have been of their own making; not least reneging on George H.W. Bush’s verbal (vital from the Russian view) promise NOT to move NATO’s borders east with the dissolution of the Soviet Union. The more NATO moves in ways that can be interpreted as boxing in Russia, the more assertive Russia will become, this is so deeply ingrained in human nature, it’s close to a law of physics. The one-sided perception of this from western view was briefly illuminated by AP reporter Matt Lee when he challenged the Department of State’s John Kirby with ‘You’re moving NATO’s borders to the borders of Russia and claiming Russia is threatening NATO’s borders because Russia has Russian military in Russia.’
Just now Russia has real leadership (whether one admires Putin or not) where the NATO nations have inept-corrupt politicians (for example one need look no farther than the current French campaign) and recently a great American buffoon (you’re fired!) surrounded by competing interests has risen the top, almost all of which said interests are opposed to Trump as a threat to those very interests. Speaking of ‘you’re fired!’ … where is CIA Director Mike Pompeo when it is he should be firing everyone at CIA refusing to cooperate with the new president? Why hasn’t Pompeo stopped the agency in its tracks with the attacks on Trump? Is Pompeo sitting on his hands while looking forward to ‘business as usual’ under a soon to be President Pence?
Trump’s election actually does threaten the balance worked out between special interests in DC, which in turn threatens to upend the entirety of the system’s function for the fact of the system had become so deaf to the desires and needs of its citizens which, predictably over the long haul, delivered us someone, anyone, that wasn’t the perceived as bought mainstream or DC insider. That’s how we got Trump.
Odds are, when the dust settles with Trump’s almost certain removal, via a treasonous CIA instigated coup, a new storm will kick up because the root cause will not have been addressed; political apparatus out of touch with the realities and demands of its’ citizenry, including many of the conservative voters who will reject Pence for the very reasons they chose Trump over the several losing competitors in the Republican primaries.
The USA is in deep trouble, both at home and abroad. The old status quo didn’t know how to, or what is worse, didn’t care to repair our national circumstance. Everyone owes too much to special interests for the places they sit at the apex of power. They had to buy their way in and finally the voters delivered them a joker. When the joker is bounced out the door, there will be no returning to business as usual, there is too much anger and too many divisions … and the system is become corrupted to point it is designed to cull any leadership that isn’t beholden to a class that has separated itself from the ordinary. The beginning of the end of empire, as it were. I expect things will get worse before they get better and in fact circumstance may never get better.
This last is because Pence himself represents an apocalyptic religious entity opposed to rule of law based in constitutional order. Ready for literal Armageddon? How does one prepare for that?
Update: Within hours of my posting this assessment, CIA Director Mike Pompeo has stated:
“The CIA does not, has not, and will never hide intelligence from the president, period. We are not aware of any instance when that has occurred”
Now, this is either disingenuous or flat out wrong. How is that? Where is Pompeo on the CIA demonstrated to be pushing a ‘the Russians hacked the election’ psychological operation and feeding this lie to the public?
“A secret CIA assessment found that Russian operatives covertly interfered in the election campaign in an attempt to ensure the Republican candidate’s victory, the Washington Post reported, citing officials briefed on the matter”
[former UK ambassador Craig] Murray said: “I know who leaked them. I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things”
Complicit in the treason? Now, the question Mike Pompeo has not addressed: Has the CIA informed Trump of the particulars concerning the CIA false-flag information operation directed at undermining Trump, blamed in media on the Russians? Certainly not. In which case the CIA actually HAS with-held critical intelligence from the president. Mike Pompeo just lied about information sharing with the president on a critical count. How can we expect anything coming out of Pompeo’s mouth is on the up & up, following on this? We can’t.
What Pompeo doesn’t know, won’t hurt him. In the alternative scenario, CIA Director Pompeo himself is kept in the dark on the issue by the CIA. How can we expect anything coming out of Pompeo’s mouth is on the up & up, following on this? We can’t.
In this second, immediately preceding possibility, CIA Director Mike Pompeo is demonstrated to be dumber than a box of rocks; for the reasons he did not independently discover, on an issue critical to Trump, what is easily available in open source: A former, entirely credible, UK ambassador, Craig Murray, stating the CIA’s ‘Russian hack’ was in actuality a leak from a DNC insider, from a source Murray attests he had personally met (going to the assassination of Seth Rich, see the link ‘Incompetent Espionage & WikiLeaks’, below.)
Any director of CIA that didn’t independently check into an ongoing story attacking his boss, a story of Russian interference in a report acknowledged to have been produced by a CIA agency famous (inside the intelligence community) for its psychological and false-flag information operations, would have to be either complicit in the treason or so incompetent as to be unfit to hold the office.
“guest” remarking in the comments at jameslafond.com, where a version of this article is posted as ‘the coup’ states:
Here is how William Binney, a former intelligence official turned whistle-blower puts it:
“We were coming into conflict with what I refer to as ‘feasting’ by the corporations that were leeches on the side of NSA and other agencies of the government, the ‘military industrial happiness management complex’. They were keeping each other happy: officials would retire from government, go to work for those corporations, the corporations would send people in to manage the programs, they’d get the contracts back and they’d feed some more.
“It’s a circle, it just keeps going round. The entire leadership at NSA was focused this way and they wanted no creativity, no innovation, no problem solved, “keep the problem going so the money keeps flowing” that was their vision statement, I just didn’t realize it.
“They didn’t want success, because that means you solved the problem, which they need to ask for more money to feed the corporations”
Trump is throwing a wrench into this symbiosis, so he better buckle up!

What is the secret the Soviet Union had sorted decades ago but the western educated troglodytes at the CIA & Defense Intelligence Agency hadn’t taken seriously until the Bush Jr administration’s second term? Oil is NOT a ‘fossil fuel’ but a self-generating resource with infinite ability to replenish (over time.)
If indeed this were the case, what would the geopolitical repercussions be? As William Engdahl had noted in 2007:
“If Russia had the scientific know-how and Western geology not, Russia possessed a strategic trump card of staggering geopolitical import. It was not surprising that Washington would go about erecting a “wall of steel”—a network of military bases and ballistic anti-missile shields around Russia, to cut her pipeline and port links to western Europe, China and the rest of Eurasia. Halford Mackinder’s worst nightmare–a cooperative convergence of mutual interests of the major states of Eurasia, born of necessity and need for oil to fuel economic growth–was emerging. Ironically, it was the blatant US grab for the vast oil riches of Iraq and, potentially, of Iran, that catalyzed closer cooperation between traditional Eurasian foes, China and Russia , and a growing realization in western Europe that their options too were narrowing”
That first sentence of the preceding is exactly right, because you can’t, with a snap of the fingers, retool an entire Western oil industry based on long-mistaken assumptions, if Russia were indeed decades ahead in understanding and developing extraction technology based on superior grasp of fact. Insofar as the rest of Engdahl’s paragraph, we see the continuing pursuit of this geopolitical phenomenon before our eyes. The only recent difference would be the post-Obama switch away from Brzezinski’s more aggressive vision of directly confronting Russia, over to Kissinger’s divide and conquer subterfuge of engaging Russia while confronting China. Make no mistake, the Russians well know how the old snake Kissinger’s back-stabbing game is played; Putin won’t be caught with his pants down (unlike the drunk Russia of the 1990s Yeltsin era.)
In the meanwhile, western oil & armaments industry and its’ geopolitical driven minions, that is the CIA and Pentagon primarily, would be pleased if the general public remained clueless in regards to a likely scenario where Russia won’t run out of oil while the Western oil companies are at a loss; trapped in a decades long game of scientific and technological catch-up. This is precisely example of why this blog has a specific category for ‘morons’
Here’s the good information our ‘scientific community’ was too inbred via ivory tower syndrome to absorb; resulting in the industry, Pentagon and intelligence community too brain-dead to grasp until decades opportunity had been lost; all because no one in Western academia questioned the unfounded assumption oil was decayed dinosaurs:
FOSSIL-FUEL THEORY DEBUNKED: OIL, GAS DEPOSITS CALLED PRIMORDIAL by Toldedo Blade (from 1997, about the time western science first began to listen)
SEATTLE – The public’s most widely known piece of geological knowledge–how petroleum and natual-gas deposts formed on Earth—is false, a noted scientist says. Surprisingly, his campaign to rewrite school textbooks and encyclopedias is getting grudging support from some geologists, who acknowledge that petroleum’s origins may be dramatically different than what people believe.
Millions of Americans learned in grade school that oil deposits originated in the age of dinosaurs, when vegetation in lush forests was buried and subjected to high heat and pressure. Those extreme conditions supposedly transformed the hydrocarbons in vegetation into the hydrocarbons of petroleum.
“That’s nonsense,” snapped Thomas Gold, a scientist at Cornell University. “There’s not a shred of evidence from chemistry, geology, or any other science to support it. It has no place in textbooks and school classrooms.”
In appearances at the annual meeting of The American Association for the Advancement of Science in Seattle here that ended Thursday, Gold repeatedly challenged geologists to reconsider and reject the conventional theory.
Gold also presented evidence that oil and gas deposits on Earth are primordial. That means they came with the planet. They were part of the original raw material that formed the sun and planets, and deposited deep below Earth’s surface when the planet formed 4.5 billion years ago.
Some of the oil gradually oozes upward from these original deposits 100 to 200 miles below the surface and collects where oil drillers can reach it.
In one presentation, Gold described shafts that he and associates drilled in an ancient meteorite impact crater in Sweden. They drilled into a kind of rock that was not sedimentary, not associated with the sediments believed to produce oil deposits.
At a depth of about 4 miles, they encountered a hydrocarbon oil similar to light petroleum that Gold believes was primordial oil. He noted a variety of evidence to support the belief. Gold estimated that this single site contained “more petroleum than all of Saudi Arabia.” With current technology, however, pumping it out would be impossible, he added. Gold contended that many other planets and planetary bodies in the solar system have similar deep deposits of hydrocarbons, which are the stuff of oil and natural gas. Gold argues that a primordial origin for petroleum is the only way to explain its chemical composition.
Petroleum originating from plant matter decayed by bacteria, similar to bacteria that decay backyard garden-compost piles, would resemble a microbial product. Instead, petroleum is chemically similar to a pure hydrocarbon that has been contaminated with microbial material. That contamination, he argues, occurred as petroleum seeped upward through rock now known to contain enormous amounts of bacterial life. In moving upward, petroleum also collected helium, explaining why oil wells are such a rich source of helium.
“This is the only possible explanation,” Gold said. “The association of helium with petroleum has not been accounted for in any other way.”
How do geologists respond?
They’re beginning to listen, according to Michael Carr, who appeared on a panel where Gold presented his theory. Carr is a scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey in Reston, Va. “Dr. Gold has some very, very good evidence, especially that involving helium,” Carr said. “He certainly is challenging the geological community. There is a debate within the geological community.” Carr said geologists plan to reconsider the conventional theory about petroleum formation at a major meeting later in the year.

Ronald Thomas West’s note: Natural resource based sustained economic development is precisely the principle of cancer, and is pointing to our planet’s demise as we know life in the present arrangement. The preceding facts concerning oil do not reflect a healthy future in any case but merely are noted in the present circumstance or geopolitical positioning of what will, even in best case scenario, be a failed model for survival. Too much is taken and too little given back. The analogy would be if natural resources were the business bank account and sustained development the business model, there is an ongoing net loss of capital –
^ To Newsweek’s Jeff Stein .. Let’s help you sort this out
While Jeff Stein at Newsweek carries water for the CIA in its’ feud with Trump, one wonders how Mike Pompeo will play it (behind the scene.) What is today’s fake news generated out of Langley, Virginia? Try this:
“For decades, CIA and U.S. military intelligence spy recruiters have held out the promise of eventual resettlement in America to induce foreigners to turn coat and work secretly for the United States against terrorist groups or repressive governments. In reality, many were caught before they ever made it, but during the Cold War countless Eastern Europeans living under communist rule, and more recently, Muslims across the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia, have worked secretly for U.S. spy agencies on the promise that they or their children would eventually be extracted. Another effective recruiting tool for U.S. operatives has been to offer their agents’ families medical care or education in the United States”
The intelligence community’s veterans are squealing like stuck pigs over the Muslim visa ban, according to Stein, although he puts it more along the lines of shedding tears:
“Absolutely,” agreed Cindy Storer, a former member of the CIA intelligence team that tracked al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden. “It hurts,” she said in a brief interview. “Capital h-u-r-t-s”
Two things about the preceding quote that concerns intelligence officer turned journalist Stein; the first is, if Stein was being straight with his readers, yeah the ‘rewards program’ worked when it was a Pakistani ISI officer walked in to bag the $25 million reward and a good life in the USA because the CIA couldn’t find its own ass with both hands let alone find bin Laden. But Stein avoids informing his readers how incompetent Central Intelligence has been (what a story that is.) The second thing is, Cindy Storer, Alfreda Bikowsky’s (speaking of stupid) bin Laden hunting professional associate, specifies “Capital h-u-r-t-s” and Stein quotes her using lower case. There’s brilliance for you.
What’s another prominent example of the ‘rewards’ program? How about CIA 3rd party contract ‘torture darling’ Omar Sulieman suddenly ‘falls ill’ and is whisked away to the USA for ‘medical’ treatment about the time Sulieman boss Mubarak’s Egyptian regime was coming apart at the seams and he rather quickly died in hospital. Problem witness silenced (Sulieman ran the CIA’s outsourced torture program in Egypt that Senator Feinstein’s torture investigation never touched.) With friends like CIA…
But neither of these case examples would have been impacted because Trump’s visa ban doesn’t cover Egypt or Pakistan. Oh, and ‘the ban’ doesn’t ban radicalized Islam’s Wahabi terrorist central: Saudi Arabia. Huh. And there’s another thing; the Langley spooks’ prostitute journalist (whether Stein realizes it or not, but hard to believe not, when it’s a former intelligence officer reporting) is almost certainly fronting this as a cover story. So what are the spooks actually fighting for, what is the CIA’s hidden agenda here? Let’s try this…
“During the 1980s, the CIA recruited and trained Muslim operatives to fight the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Later, the CIA would move those operatives from Afghanistan to the Balkans, and then to Iraq, Libya, and Syria, traveling on illegal US visas”
…according to Former USA consular officer in Saudi Arabia, Michael Springmann
What’s more is, when Springmann had been a consular officer in Jedda, Saudi Arabia:
“Michael Springmann, head US consular official in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, later claims that during this period he is “repeatedly ordered… to issue [more than 100] visas to unqualified applicants.” He turns them down, but is repeatedly overruled by superiors
“In one case, two Pakistanis apply for visas to attend a trade show in the US, but they are unable to name the trade show or city in which it will be held. When Springmann denies them a visa, he gets “an almost immediate call from a CIA case officer, hidden in the commercial section [of the consulate], that I should reverse myself and grant these guys a visa.” Springmann refuses, but the decision is reversed by the chief of the consular section”
I suppose a ban could cramp the CIA’s game of shuffling ‘moderate opposition’ around the globe, particularly those from ‘banned’ countries. Certainly we wouldn’t want a precedent like this set because our ‘moderate’ opposition leadership qualifying for the CIA ‘rewards program’ and life in the USA, can’t all be Pakistanis, Egyptians and Saudis. After all, what would the CIA do if it couldn’t move its’ al Qaida fighters into Kosovo and Bosnia? And then on to Syria where we discover:
“There is no difference between “moderate” rebels and al-Qaeda (al-Nusra) or ISIS — they are all the same” -US Representative Tulsi Gabbard, following on location (Syria) fact finding mission.
And finally, we have a 2009 interview by retired CIA officer Phillip Giraldi, with former FBI documents translator Sibel Edmonds:
EDMONDS: Okay. So these conversations, between 1997 and 2001, had to do with a Central Asia operation that involved bin Laden. Not once did anybody use the word “al-Qaeda.” It was always “mujahideen,” always “bin Laden” and, in fact, not “bin Laden” but “bin Ladens” plural. There were several bin Ladens who were going on private jets to Azerbaijan and Tajikistan. The Turkish ambassador in Azerbaijan worked with them.
“There were bin Ladens, with the help of Pakistanis or Saudis, under our management. [The USA Department of State’s] Marc Grossman was leading it, 100 percent, bringing people from East Turkestan into Kyrgyzstan, from Kyrgyzstan to Azerbaijan, from Azerbaijan some of them were being channeled to Chechnya, some of them were being channeled to Bosnia. From Turkey, they were putting all these bin Ladens on NATO planes. People and weapons went one way, drugs came back”
‘Rewards’ visas might be really, very handy, even necessary, to enable operations like the immediate preceding. Enough said? You think? Maybe one more thing; a former clandestine services case officer informs me: “CIA actually issues its own visas and has many ways to completely by-pass the system” in which case the entire premise of Jeff Stein’s article is bogus from the get-go. So what’s the problem? Too little resources devoted to CIA clandestine services forgeries to give up the Department of State visas issued on false pretext? All of the Libyan ‘rewards worthy’ fighters with fake ‘moderate opposition’ Syrian passports have to be re-papered as Egyptians? Too much work to get around increasingly sophisticated border controls where CIA vetted® & moderate™ Salafist militants shouldn’t risk getting busted with multiple identities due to advancing technologies like biometrics? Is it as simple as certain parties at the CIA, in their ongoing feud with Trump, simply wish to smear Trump in the public mind on a national security issue?
At the end of the day it’s anybody’s guess what is behind the patent bullshit in the Newsweek article. What we do know is, other than the certain fact the article is classic misdirection concerning intelligence and would appear to be a psyop fed to the American public, the Trump order seems to have put a bug up the intelligence community’s butt.
Tip of the hat to Intel News (irony, my comment pointing out former consular officer Springmann’s narrative was disallowed, and that is what actually inspired this piece)
August 8, 2016 | 4:33 pm
Anti-Trump Republicans have proved, yet again, that they are nothing if not determined [to elect Hillary]…
Vice News and the CIA should be sued for libeling the American voters intelligence (except they might win, perhaps the theme of a future satire.) Ok, this will be short and sweet. Per the VICE article title, the CIA guy (once CIA, always CIA) is running as an ‘independent’ Republican to stop Trump. Oh, except he’s actually running to stop Hillary:
“McMullin’s campaign could signal an effort by Republicans to stop Clinton from taking Utah in November. McMullin is a Utah native, a graduate of Brigham Young University, and a Mormon. Trump is polling badly in the Mormon-dominated state and many Republicans fear that they could lose a longtime stronghold altogether”
So, let’s suppose “former CIA operative” Evan McMullin wins Utah to stop Hillary, er, that is Trump. Now, in the case of a McMullin victory, do the math; he can’t give Utah’s electoral votes to either candidate and come off as clean, so he drops the traditionally secure Utah Republican vote into an electoral void, helping Hillary. That being the case, shouldn’t the article’s title have read:
But the article is pitched as stopping Trump AND Hillary… stop Hillary winning Utah by offering a nominally Republican alternative to Trump so Utah’s lily-white Mormon moral vote can be tossed into an electoral void, helping Hillary without admitting it is Republicans helping Hillary. And the voter is supposed into buy this. Actually, yeah, that could work to assuage the moral conscience of the Mormon religious right, because:
“You can’t convince a chimpanzee to give you a banana with the promise it will get 20 more bananas in chimpanzee heaven. It won’t do it. But humans will” -Behaviorist Yuval Noah Harari
But the really creepy portion of the article is somewhat off topic:
“…[McMullin] has served most recently as the Republican policy director for the House of Representatives, after working 11 years as a CIA operative”
Huh. Better go back and read THIS ONE again… (if you want into the expanded possibilities of the CIA efforts to elect Hillary…)
Related: If ‘The Donald’ Were a Real… (man?)
If ‘The Donald’ were a real ‘man’ … he’d question those mysterious deaths surrounding the Clintons, wouldn’t you think? Just over the past six weeks:
Shawn Lucas, Sanders supporter who served papers to DNC on the Fraud Case (DOD August 2, 2016)
Victor Thorn, Clinton author (and Holocaust denier, probably the least credible on this list) shot himself in an apparent suicide. Conspiracy theorists at Mystery Writers of America said some guys will do anything to sell books. (DOD August, 2016)
Seth Conrad Rich, Democratic staffer, aged 27, apparently on his way to speak to the FBI about a case possibly involving the Clintons. The D.C. murder was not a robbery. (DOD July 8, 2016)
John Ashe, UN official who allegedly crushed his own throat while lifting weights, because he watched too many James Bond films and wanted to try the move where the bad guy tries to…oh, never mind. “He was scheduled to testify against the Clintons and the Democrat Party.” (DOD June 22, 2016)
Mike Flynn, the Big Government Editor for Breitbart News. Mike Flynn’s final article was published the day he died, “Clinton Cash: Bill, Hillary Created Their Own Chinese Foundation in 2014.” (DOD June 23, 2016)
So, what’s to stop Trump calling out the Clinton ‘body count’ ?? Or for that matter, the Clinton connection to the CIA cocaine smuggling into Mena, Arkansas. A real man would call that out, you think?
“According to his wife, security operative Jerry Parks delivers large sums of money from Mena airport to Vince Foster at a K-Mart parking lot. Mrs. Parks discovers this when she opens her car trunk one day and finds so much cash that she has to sit on the trunk to close it again. She asks her husband whether he is dealing drugs, and he allegedly explains that Foster paid him $1,000 for each trip he took to Mena. Parks said he didn’t “know what they were doing, and he didn’t care to know. He told me to forget what I’d seen”… Later Evans-Pritchard will write, “Foster was using him as a kind of operative to collect sensitive information on things and do sensitive jobs. Some of this appears to have been done on behalf of Hillary Clinton. . . Foster told him that Hillary wanted it done”
Anyone else recall Vince Foster bumped himself off in DC (or, c’mon, really, some people actually believe did he not? Laughs)
“I don’t bring it [Foster’s death] up because I don’t know enough to really discuss it,” Trump continued. “I will say there are people who continue to bring it up because they think it was absolutely a murder. I don’t do that because I don’t think it’s fair” –The Donald
Aspires to be a real ‘boy’
It’d take The Donald’s investigators about ten minutes, the previous quote’s linked propaganda piece notwithstanding, to figure out Vince Foster, a Clinton liaison (money man) to the CIA cocaine operation at Mena, Arkansas, was talking to the FBI when he died and Hillary was freaking out over possible revelation of a much larger circumstance. So, consequently ‘Pop’ (rather popped off) goes the (Vince Foster) weasel.
Associating with Cohn assured Trump that his construction projects in Manhattan would go smoothly
Cohn’s clients included ‘two of America’s most powerful Mafia figures who controlled key unions’
Trump also associated with drug traffickers and convicted felons while building his famous Trump Tower and other ventures
Huh. Drug traffickers and mafia (also favorite CIA) associations. Maybe ‘our boy’ The Donald DARE NOT call out Hillary on her psychopathic crimes. A sort of child’s playground taunt ‘it takes one to know one’ circumstance, a.k.a. if you squeal on me … I’ll squeal on you…

double entendre |ˌdo͞obl ˌänˈtändrə|
noun (pl. double entendres pronunc.same)
a word or phrase open to two interpretations, one of which is usually risqué or indecent.
ORIGIN late 17th cent.: from obsolete French (now double entente), ‘double understanding.’
