This satire points to what I’d call the anti-social nature of the National Security State; where the leadership has become removed from all reality except for focus on those acts which either facilitate, conceal or excuse their crime sprees. I would apply the anti-social label for the simple fact what we see in these people is not identifiable as compatible with anything resembling a historical morality as defined by any past social construct except that one were to accept something resembling Nazi principles of social strata and behaviors; supposedly rejected by every modern institution representing the liberal democracies.

Going to the point of hypocrisy in the preceding, it follows, who was correct, Orwell or Huxley? Both were correct. Orwell described the cloistered mentality of the power-hungry sociopath seeking control similar to leadership found in the extreme, paranoid, religious community and its acolytes demanding a pseudo-morality imposed from the top down. Huxley described the fate of another personality, that of the narcissist-hedonist in a modern culture where removal of selective pressure had lifted social strictures that previously served as avenue to community bonding demanding a development of (now absent) ethical behaviors.

This autobiographical satire, dusted off and brought up to date, gives a glimpse from the outside perspective; it is an amalgam of the conservative-liberal dichotomy and resultant insanity prevalent in today’s Western world where there is an insistent demand the morbid social facts and deceits be buried beneath the absolute rot of political correctness.

Torture supervisor (CIA Director) Gina Haspel is exemplary example of social deceit where the road to emancipation for the Western women is to become identical to the worst of the Western males; aggressive, ‘erect’ and rapine (referencing rapist in a culture where otherwise women are historically property.) In the liberal democracies, ‘feminism’ (for the women, as opposed to the ‘neutered’ Western ‘feminist’ men) is little more than a road to a sort of psychological sex change to becoming hyper-male; an avenue to quality female intelligence it certainly is not. 

Clown Rack

The ‘Free Speech Clown’ series

Morality masks a plethora of behaviors ethics cannot. Native American humor was all about ethics, that is no matter how harsh a truth, it must be out in the open at the least as a metaphor, the purpose in Native humor is all about keeping things honest.

The humor in western culture, on the other hand, often cannot honestly observe without crossing morality. So humor does not much serve to keep western culture honest, because too many people are afraid to go there. The thing with this is, if people were not afraid to go with honest observations, things could never degenerate to where we are now.

So, I will write about an Indian, a culturally intact Indian. Imagine the insanity of a tribal mentality taught to observe and honestly remark on the world around them suddenly cast adrift into the ego shielding ‘Honky’ sea of political correctness. Now, this native mentality is only certifiably insane because of context, or better said, an out of context circumstance. Because in the native world from which he had sprung, politically correct is actually a buzz word for the circling buzzards of Indian humor, any real Native who hears the words ‘politically correct’ is apt to drop everything and listen in to the most recent wisdom and insight (always in the format of the often untranslatable to the Whiteman ‘Indian Humor’) ripping the people who trashed 200 years of treaties and moved on pretending as though nothing had happened.

This endeavor goes to shatter stereotype of the ‘taciturn’ Indian which is actually a reflection of the little understood Native cultural communication phenomena of rather than say something honest to a Whiteman that threatens the Whiteman’s ego and be killed, just shut up. Unless of course, you are not afraid to die.

For simple literary device sake, we will make this Indian 1) White skinned and 2) the last of his kind. How could this happen and the said Native persona is alive in the 21st century, a full 150 years since the Native custom of a White captive child raised to be Indian?

Well now, to be honest in the Native way, we must address this portion of the literary endeavor with a joke story drawn from real life, a sort of collage of facts assembled from bits and pieces of diverse experience, combined with anecdotal information to create the culturally intact inherent Native wisdom found in their humor. In other words, parts of the story from here out is an autobiographical facts incorporated, multi-faceted rip-off of other peoples life stories and experience. And because unlike the White world, the Native world entertains paradox in daily approach to life, some more of what follows is simply made up from the imagination’s fund of plausible improbabilities.

We’ll call the Indian “Ron” although his native name in the Cree Indian country he hails from is ‘Moon-i-Yas’ which can be translated either “Not like us” or “Paleface.” In “Ron’s” case it is “Paleface” when properly translated, because the other translation applies to people who behave like Whites, rather than merely look like them. And by Native definition, “Ron” is Indian on account of his cultural behavior, his ‘pale face’ simply being unfortunate circumstance or, better said from the Indian perspective, that peculiar cosmic joke of life circumstance which one way or other manifests the Trickster aspect in all Native experience.

To kick off the story, back in the late 1940s there were people just like today’s truly Honky folk, real White people, that behaved in all sorts of self- repressed ways and repressed their own kids because of their staunch Puritan belief in H.L. Menecken’s maximum that ‘proper’ Puritans must preoccupy themselves with the horrifying thought “Someone, somewhere, might be happy.” So they learned to follow Jesus command to ‘love’ by ‘loving’ to hate.

Because of the ‘love’ factor in ‘loving’ to hate themselves, their kids and their fellow man, making ‘love’ is more often a rape than not, ‘loving’ their brothers and sisters is ‘loving’ to tell other people how to live their lives, and ‘loving’ security is to create an insecure society so they can ‘love’ the idea of a police state.

Now the daughters of these fundamentalist people, whether the arch-conservative Protestant or the ultra-conservative Catholic, are not so different to some of today’s young women, raised in families that with bared fangs dare anyone to so much as mention sex to their children let alone have it taught anywhere other than at the clandestine parties of the young people, who learn to hide the realities of their lives from their parents because you are punished whether you lie or tell the truth. So lying becomes in vogue because if you are young and you lie, you might not be caught and punished for enjoying yourself, whereas if you tell the truth you will be punished every time. So impromptu sex education at the young peoples clandestine parties gives a whole new meaning to expressions such as ‘powerpoint’ and the many unwed young mothers resulting are simply one more manifestation of God’s will and Jesus commandment that people ‘love’ (other peoples misery in the case of Gina Haspel and the Puritans.)

As fate would have it, in the late 1940s a young Catholic girl had gone from her conservative family upbringing and all girls school, where the nuns would not touch sex-ed with the proverbial ten foot pole, in Chicago, to college at Gonzaga in Washington State where she was introduced to sex as a sorority girl by innumerable happy to oblige young men .. at the ‘Girls Gone Wild’ parties before the era of exploiting these events on video. Concealing her inevitable pregnancy from her far away folks, not having known what a condom is, she was driving home to Chicago with her new born, this was in 1950, give or take a year or so, and dropped the infant off on the doorstep at the Catholic Rectory at Havre, Montana, with a note pinned on the swaddling infants dress: “Ron”

A Chippewa Medicine Man from the nearby Rocky Boy’s Indian Reservation was at the cinema close by, he enjoyed the classic Bugs Bunny cartoons preceding the movie and paid his entry fee for that but then always left. The movies themselves were non-sensical to him. Walking along the street, he noticed a dropped envelope, picked it up and was surprised to see it was stuffed with cash. He saw the black ink stamp of the Catholic parish on the envelope and walked to give it to the priest at the rectory, and found the infant. Stepping around the child and standing on the step above, he knocked and the priest answered the door. The Medicine Man stated “I found your lost money” and handed the surprised priest the envelope. The priest, who hated this Medicine Man his Native parishioners would sneak off to see behind his back, shouted “Returning this money won’t buy YOUR way out of Hell!” and slammed the door in the Indian’s face, before he could tell him about the child.

The Indian knocked several times more, and patiently waited, but there was no further opening of the door. So, he picked up the kid and took “Ron” home.

Given to the Medicine Man’s niece who had her own infant the same age, “Ron” was suckled, named “Moon-i-Yas”, surrounded with love and the native joke the newly found ‘twin’ was result of “Indian Immaculate Conception.” No one of the Indians wanted to give the foundling kid to the meaner than shit racist White people at Havre, Montana, it just seemed wrong. When it came time to take the infants to the Indian Agency for birth certificates and enrollment, the Agency people just figured they were fraternal twins and there was a White father of the one child. So “Ron” grew up Indian. He then moved to Al-boo-quark-ee in New Mexico because of his fond memories of the old Medicine Man mimicking Bugs Bunny’s pronunciation of that city’s name.

Nearly seventy odd years after “Ron’s” birth, President Trump ordered DNA tests on all Indians to reduce the Native Enrollment and save money better spent on confronting Iran & drone murders than Indian health, kicking Indians that could not demonstrate 75% Native American blood off their reservations. It was discovered Moon-i-Yas, a.k.a. “Ron”, was the last White captive and he became a national sensation. What bloodthirsty savage had murdered his family and kidnapped this child? And anyway, a White Indian had to be a subversive, the bloodthirsty murdering savages that raised “Ron” had to have imparted their pagan licentiousness to him. The FBI was ordered to investigate “Ron”, it was a matter of ‘National Security.’

Meanwhile “Ron” had discovered a few things about White people. Like when an arch-conservative fundamentalist Republican principal of a lily-white charter school surreptitiously run as a private Christian institution that doubled as a cover for intelligence agents masked as teachers who break every civil rights law you can imagine, not only using ‘field trips abroad’ for cover when running operations, have discovered you have raised your kid Indian, all of the state apparatus is arrayed against you for the satanic act of being an ultra-permissive parent. Allergies causing red eyes are interpreted as the child being a devil, but because there is no law to charge you with for that, you are investigated for drugs. When you are courageous enough to fight back for your kid and call a spade a spade, it is ‘undue hostility towards authority’ and you are investigated for terrorism. Failing every effort at criminal entrapment and being counter-investigated, assassins are dispatched by the neo-con hate mongers… and failing again and again it all just keeps getting bigger- FBI criminals implicated, Department of Defense criminals implicated, CIA criminals implicated, the criminal Church implicated, the National Security Agency implicated, allied intelligence, MOSSAD particularly, implicated.. meanwhile the White, Native American Jason Bourne-savant-idiot-trickster- clown had foiled the fascists again and again!

Because “Ron” really IS Indian, he fights back with taunts and satires, in the post –modern weapon of blogs. “Ron” taunts the establishment with the idea of “Jewels Misogyny”, wherein these neo-conservative & neo-liberal closet-gay institutions of accelerated education attended by the children of the military-industrial rich and powerful, only the brightest and most beautiful women teachers are hired… and must adopt masculine persona like so many ‘bull dikes’ as have the Michelle Bachmanns of this world, women who consequently marry self-repressed homosexuals attracted to these so-called women because of their male persona. They are all ‘men’ resembling nothing so much as castrated mannequins in drag (say, how’s that ‘cures gays’ clinic going? Remember Jesus saying “Heal thyself”?)

The end result? Either liberal women who hate themselves (Jewels Misogyny) for their participation in this travesty, job security being more important than ethics and fighting back or, women with “Acquired Ego Priapism Syndrome” like Gina Haspel or the ‘imaginary’ school principal. Women who behave like sexist and racist men. Woman-male torturers of our values of tolerance and compassion, the liberal and libertarian values that are uniquely American, the ability to live and let live. Women of Haspel’s class which join with criminal-fascist men in covering up constitutional crimes with religious façade Trump is afraid to pick on.

Of course the initial culture clash long ago was the Indians being shocked at how harshly the Puritans treated their children, the cause of many a ‘captive White’ raised in Native freedom and, conversely the Puritan horror at the liberty of the Native children resulting in the practice of “The only good Indian is a dead Indian.” Not so different to Haspel’s proposed concealment of the identities of American torturers [1], with her misandry (self-hate)  thinly disguised behind national security hysteria. Haspel is a Puritan, psychologically male, W.A.S.P. with Acquired Ego-Priapism Syndrome, in effect a chauvinist as pathologically erect as any male serial rapist except for resembling a lesbian Torquemada in heat.

What I mostly enjoy about this story is, in the modern politically correct world where only women can refer to a woman as a bitch, and get away with it, no differently than only gays may refer to themselves as queers or fags, only Blacks can call themselves Niggers or Asians can call themselves gooks or chinks, Mexicans self-refer as beaners, Jews calling themselves kikes, Indians laughing at the idea of being prairie niggers, and sheep bleating to themselves they are meadow maggots, without a hate crime referral, but this Indian author can call the psychopath White fascist people in absolute racist terms “Honkies” and totally get away with it because he is White skinned. I say that especially because of Supreme Court Justice Alito referring to “Marauding Indians” in a context of self-defense in a decision on firearms, I suppose he thinks we should be hunted like wolves from planes. But because no one ordinarily can comment on physical attributes such as gender or skin color outside their own race or sex freely, this prevents in any politically correct circumstance the real or broad examination of the perverse Puritan sexist and racist BEHAVIORS tied to the DESERVING DESCRIPTION which underlie psychologically male, grotesque, criminal, HONKY women like Haspel; who resembles nothing so much as the drag queen Jack Kerouac must have fantasized himself, had he dared to be openly gay.

Gee. Somehow the story did not end up funny. I’ll work on that.

MAGGOT™

MAGGOT™ or ‘Make America Great, Get Over Trump’ should be applied to these women in Trump’s life (this list is not exhaustive.)

MAGGOT™ should work especially well as a message from everyone tired, or revolted at sight, of a many years’ dead corpse dressed & made up in anime fashion, that is Nancy Pelosi.

MAGGOT™ should work well for superstitious Slovenian villager Melania, when her troupe of exorcists revisiting the White House are treated to a shut-down related junk food cuisine.

MAGGOT™ should work for Stormy Daniels having ‘treated’ Trump to whatever political aftermath can be passed off with a metaphor of ‘sexually transmitted trichinosis’ (pig-worm disease.)

MAGGOT™ adequately describes Michael Cohen, when she’d been bent over by Robert Mueller, which also works (in slightly altered concept) as a metaphor for the CIA bending over Latin America multiple times, momentarily Venezuela (by stealth, from behind.)

MAGGOT™ should work well for Senator Lindsey Graham, when she casts her back-stabbing, convicting vote in upcoming impeachment trial of Trump in our neo-Roman Senate.

MAGGOT™ (in the feminist plural, includes Trump’s ‘hots’ and ‘nots’ or a sampling of America’s carcass of maggots) adequately describes Nikki Haley, Barbie, Sara Huckabee, Diane Feinstein, Ann Coulter, Meryl Streep, Heather Wilson, Michelle Obama, Betsy DeVos, Jill Stein, Ivanka Trump, Elena Kagan, Dina Powell, Emperor Elagabus, Hillary Clinton, Heather Nauert, Lizzie Borden, Mike Pompeo, Oprah, CondoLEEzaa, Kate ‘Ma’ Barker, Alan Dershowitz (ex officio) & Gina Haspel, to a tee.

MAGGOT™ is an excellent description of Lady Liberty’s misandry, the cause of countless piles of dead people’s bodies across the globe.

The boyz? C’mon, git off yer ass and put in some licks fer Lady Liberty; rush over to your sports or souvenir shop, RIGHT NOW, because … MAGGOT™ should make an excellent American baseball cap logo:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Meet NATO’s Trojan Horse

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jamal Khashoggi’s Turkish Wrap

What will be written one can believe? MSM is so pervasively lied through, in the course of the information wars, we are informed the Russians have committed all attributable acts of evil since Eve took a bite of the apple, example given. That is, until Erdogan’s people accused the Saudis of murdering Jamal Khashoggi. What will the history books say?

As of this writing, one can order “Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion” (weasel words excusing its sale notwithstanding) at Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos’ amazon.com but you cannot order ‘How to Get Away With Murder in America’ by Evan Wright, an account of a high ranking CIA official, Enrique Prado, who is demonstrated to have doubled as a serial contract killer throughout his career, as detailed by a crack, award winning reporter citing government records no less.

Why the ‘Saudis did it’ line just doesn’t make sense: However the Saudi regime is undoubtedly brutal by any sensible standards, not only Western standards, their intelligence operatives are not unprofessional and so stupid as to lead the bloodhounds directly to their door by murdering Khashoggi during a known appointment that that he would not return from. This would include rogue agents necessarily needing to conceal the murder from not only the Turks but also the Saudis, impossible within the consulate. It really is as simple as this. In the event the murder were actually a state sanctioned Saudi act, the Istanbul location would have staff who’re Saudi intelligence professionals and would have options to assassinate Khashoggi exterior to the consulate with little opportunity to trace the murder back to the Saudis. That’s the black and white of ‘what’s wrong with this picture.’

In a case where it had actually been Turkish state actors had murdered Jamal Khashoggi, there is no way the Saudis could win the ‘he-said-she-said’ information war and they’d have to cave in and play the game.

No doubt there will be many, falsified future accounts, made available at Amazon Books, of the so-called ‘journalist’ Jamal Khashoggi’s murder, especially those ‘agency approved’ narratives steering the reader away from certain inconvenient facts; 1) Khashoggi’s most recent employer, the Bezos owned Washington Post, is the CIA’s number one (top) information operations laundering organization (front), 2) Khashoggi had intelligence ties to CIA in Afghanistan going back years and profiles as a CIA asset, 3) the murder account is crude enough to pass muster as a false-flag information operation engineered by Turkey’s intelligence chief, the long time al-Qaida aligned (actual member) Hakan Fidan, eliminating a CIA asset and aiming to bring less liberal Saudi players into power who’d be more favorable to the interests of the Erdogan regime’s clandestine relationship with its takfiri allies, 4) any real exam of the facts would notice the main difference between Turkey’s regime and the Saudi regime is Erdogan and his people have to finesse the fact of their actual nature (Salafi) in regards to a strong secular political opposition and NATO membership.

Insofar as the Western leadership howls of outrage at the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi, they have little choice but to play along for the fact alternative admissions are too destabilizing, for instance NATO’s Turkey employs an intelligence chief, Hakan Fidan, an al-Qaida member since the 1990s, who amounts to a laundered and state employed al-Baghdadi.

Mike Pence declaring Gina Haspel has been sent to Turkey to ‘get the facts’ is cynical to place of surreal. Recalling Haspel is a veteran of the USA’s own ‘disappearing people’ (the USA’s renditions program with 100 or so declared ‘detainees’ but 11,000 known flights, do the math, meanwhile Haspel had run a ‘black site’), it is anybody’s guess as to why she might really have made the trip. To finger wag at Turkish intelligence?

Other possibilities would include but not be limited to, the NATO states having decided MBS (the Saudi Crown Prince) had become a liability and the operation was carried out as a sop to the liberal democracies. In this case Haspel would be running damage control; wanting the Turks to all get on the same page and improve their story line, from ‘the body has been found in a well’ at the Saudi consul’s residence but that didn’t work because the body would already be demanded for exam, to ‘we have permission to look for the body’ in the well, and ‘we can’t find the body’ that ‘was smuggled out in a carpet’ (if you know that, you should know where the body is), all on top of if the Saudis have honestly admitted the dirty deed, they should be able to locate the body (a week on and they haven’t been able to.) In other words it appears to be the typical liars fest when guilty people don’t know what to say when confronted with demands for information. The Turks’ story lines come across as messed up as the Saudis’ story lines, that’s what happens when both parties are in circumstance of making things up. If the body is found in the well, oh well, now you’d have to examine how it actually got there, or consider if it had been merely asserted it had been found there, this whole thing is hostage to what amounts to a criminal regime’s liars playing off the liars of a criminal regime with its’ back to the wall.

Did the Saudis actually do it? It’s possible. People do incredibly stupid things and that includes the Saudis but I’m not convinced the Saudis did this one. The narrative (information war), as presented in mainstream media, details circumstance absolutely too stupid to be the planned intelligence hit Erdogan and his people would have us believe.

In the paradox that is today’s global reality, faced with soap-opera mentality level of propaganda (what people are prepared to believe) the escape strategy for the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia could be to absorb the accusations framing him with an ‘it was rogue players!’ defense and hope to weather the storm, but it’s not likely without major concessions.

This is consequence of the immense amount of ill will Saudi Arabia has accumulated over decades of extreme intolerance and radically brutal punishments insuring people around the world will put nothing past the Saudis when it comes to the information wars. Maybe they DID do it.

26 October 2018 updates: According to Craig Murray, Khashoggi filmed his own murder with Dick Tracy’s 2-way wrist TV:

I have not seen the video from inside the consulate, but have been shown stills which may be from a video. The most important thing to say is that they are not from a fixed position camera and appear at first sight consistent with the idea they are taken by a device brought in by the victim. I was only shown them briefly. I have not heard the audio recording

Guess what Craig? That’s absolutely an asinine assertion and if that’s the line being circulated out of Turkey, it means Saudi intelligence was not only stupid enough to kill Khashoggi during an appointment at the consulate pointing the finger direct to themselves, it also means they did not confiscate and shut down Khashoggi’s electronic device but let it broadcast instead. The Turks need to upgrade the level of novels they take their inspirations from; this is just too cheesy. If there is photos  extracted from video, as well as audio of the killing in the hands of the Turks (will we ever see them?), it follows the most simple explanation is Khashoggi was in the custody of the Turks when he was murdered. Or someone very close to Turkish intelligence, bringing up this next:

Over at the Spectator, Matthew Brodsky brings up two very salient points ignored in this story by MSM: Khashoggi’s longtime al-Qaida relationship including access to bin Ladin and how it looks very much like CIA issued Khashoggi’s Green Card before he even relocated to the States last year. This would be consistent with Hakan Fidan’s fraternal brothers, al Qaida, having an interest in interrogating and disposing of Khashoggi, with an assist from the Turks (Fidan.)

29 October 2018: Over at zerohedge.com, ‘Tyler Durden’ dissects a Financial Times article (pay wall) where the USA spooks lay out their disinformation line however the author dissecting the Times, seemingly astutely, notes the intelligence agencies are extending what amounts to…

“… a public invitation for MbS to save his own ass by becoming “triply loyal” to the CIA and MI6″

…except the problem with this is, the very nature of the ‘invitation’ (public) is inviting a palace coup. As well, the Financial Times article’s intelligence ‘sources’ states the prince who’d been ousted by MBS, that is Mohammed bin Nayef, had been the “darling” of Western intelligence. That’s a second public kiss of death by the CIA, indicating they certainly don’t want him back. The spook disinformation math (psychology) is simple: when a so-called ‘credible’ source (i.e. Financial Times, where English literate wealthy Saudis read) lays out a case that the CIA has what amounts to geopolitical consensual relationship with a player (Mohammed bin Nayef), that’s a means of making that player’s position impossible within the (in this case Saudi) hierarchy for the very important reasons of perception. If your proposed leader is in bed with CIA, MI6 and/or MOSSAD, the domestic perception is possessed of rather deadly potential. The more likely scenario is, Mohammed bin Nayef was pushed out with an assist from CIA, MI6 and MOSSAD but his replacement, MBS, is hopelessly damaged goods and it’s necessary to get other fish to rise to the bait. Directly relevant to this, Le Figaro is reporting a secret conclave of senior Saudi royals to determine who will replace MBS (who will be discretely retired.)

Meanwhile, across the pond in Britain, the stupidity of the disinformation line grows exponentially; supposedly British intelligence had foreknowledge of the planned Khashoggi kidnap and/or murder, had monitored the Saudi intelligence team’s movement and “begged” the Saudi’s not to do it. But they apparently forgot to tip Khashoggi, the Turks and the CIA… quoting MI6 “we’d done what we could” which indicates this new line in the story is methane generated noise from the MI6 arse.

Recap of the NATO intelligence agencies’ line: Saudi intelligence is so dumb they kill Khashoggi at a known appointment he won’t return from, pointing the finger direct to themselves, an event broadcast with Khashogggi’s own electronic device, ON TOP OF the Saudis having been tipped off the British are monitoring what they’re up to BEFORE the killing. My pet squirrel monkey could do better than this (if I had one.)

As this soap goes on, the Turks demand the Saudis produce a body the Saudis don’t seem to be able to find, and one wonders if the body is being ‘pre-soaked’ by the Turks to point of non-recognition so any remains (perhaps recovered from al-Qaida) can be convincingly be ‘found in a sewer’ (near the consulate, where the Turks are reported to be searching.)

1 November 2018: Who Ate Jamal Khashoggi?

“When you invite cannibals to dinner you can expect to end up as the main course”

The renown cannibal takfiri-salafi terrorist, however originating with Saudi-Wahabi theology, is not allowed in Saudi Arabia. You join, it’s exile for life, ‘don’t come home, ever’ or ‘thwok, thunk’ is the sound of the sword & head roll. It was Hakan Fidan and Recep Erdogan welcomed the takfiri-salafi terrorists into NATO via Turkey with open arms and now there are over a thousand cells there. It follows, where Turkey  continues to shield al-Qaida members in Syria’s Northwest Idlib province, counter to the Turks’ agreement with the Russians, we should recall when an al-Qaida commander “was denounced … for his descent into cannibalism on camera” (note he was not denounced for cannibalism per se) later was ambushed and killed by another group, and Hakan Fidan’s fraternal brothers (the al-Qaida group in Turkish controlled Idlib) went to immediate battle to avenge their cannibal commander’s death.

Who would cut up Khashoggi while still alive? The Saudis? Or the Turk’s allies with a documented (video, no less) reputation for cannibalism?

Jamal Khashoggi was a triple agent reflecting his long time relationships with al-Qaida, Saudi intelligence and the CIA. When it comes to Syria, Saudi intelligence and CIA’s consensual relations have been rather smooth for quite some time. The Turks and al-Qaida, on the other hand, despite a common animus held towards Assad with the Saudis and Americans, would jump at opportunity to interrogate and butcher a CIA asset, especially if there were opportunity to frame a 3rd party. Al Qaida likes the Saudis even less than the Erdogan regime who sees the the House of Saud’s Arabian desert kingdom as a renegade Ottoman province. As well, for the Turks, they won’t forget the CIA has already tried to take Erdogan out. Saudi intelligence might be a bit more reticent in carrying out the killing of a CIA asset, given the close nature of their relationship with the CIA. Then, it should be looked at whether Khashoggi’s fiance, a Turkish “36 year old doctoral student” had been a Turkish intelligence or al-Qaida aligned ‘honey pot.’

The Insurance File

When Gina Haspel flew to Turkey to ‘review evidence’, no doubt she compared notes with Hakan Fidan on who has the better ‘insurance file’ where national players represented in the intelligence agencies heads do business based not only on common interests but also liberally blackmail each other. In this latter case, the Turks could easily point out ‘if we take the hit for this and go down as result, the Western (read NATO) nations will discover who had been deep in the oil for weapons business with ISIS, you know it wasn’t only us.’ This would be a big concern for British and French, especially, not only the Americans.

FINALLY, it comes down to there is no body any of the parties are able or willing to produce. The (plausibly blackmailed) NATO nations would have us believe the Saudis butchered Khashoggi alive but that seems much more like a Turk allied al-Qaida narrative or what happens when you encounter people who prefer to think of their dinner as ‘long pig.’

What happened to Jamal Khashoggi? We’ll probably never know. But it could as easily (or more easily) be the Edogan regime’s al-Qaida actors murdered him with Fidan’s blessing and the Saudis had to take the hit.

Despite the much deserved worldwide reputation for brutality in matters of state punishments, the Saudi regime was never so bloody as the people Erdogan’s regime rub shoulders with everyday.

Yep, folks, if you have a Yahoo mail account, the actual ‘oath’ appears to be a promise they are allowed to read your mails with impunity. I didn’t care to spend a lot of time on this but you also appear to give up your right to sue (including class action waiver, indicating real worry about the legality) and accept ‘arbitration’ if, for instance, some ‘oath’ employee(s) were to, let’s say, steal your girlfriend’s nude photos and hand them over to some ‘dark web’ virtual masturbation chat room populated with gang rapists (or whatever.) Oh, and then there’s the ever-present government interest in accessing anyone’s mail…

On ‘the Russians did it’ (but actually the Israelis did it)’ front, Julian Assange is deservedly rotting in what amounts to (at this point) Ecuadorian solitary confinement. The incredible irony goes like this: The USA’s intelligence information operations claim Assange was a conduit for Russian hackers release of the DNC mails, immensely damaging Hillary’s chances (however deservedly so.) Recalling former CIA clandestine services officer Robert Steele stating “Assange has MOSSAD connections”, who actually benefited from Trump becoming president? Clearly the Israelis. No one else had been willing to move the USA embassy to Jerusalem on top of tearing up the Iran agreement so despised by Netanyahu. Meanwhile, when otherwise astute observers like Vanessa Beeley, Caitlin Johnstone and Raúl Ilargi Meijer cry over Assange’s confinement, I just scratch my head in wonder; how is it these people miss Wikileaks had been key in cooperating with the intelligence services that had set the so-called “Arab Spring” in motion, resulting in (among other things) the Syrian civil war? Oops. Nevertheless, this following is worth a read, even if it’s only about half right, at least the article manages to competently poke holes in ‘the Russians did it’ propaganda, even if the author can’t wrap his head around it’s more than likely (almost certainly) it was the Israel’s MOSSAD actually stole the DNC mails with a thumb drive via (the promptly assassinated) Seth Rich:

…but my take has been for a long time it’s the useful idiot scenario, Jones does a great job of discrediting a lot of valid stories and facts by associating with David Icke and lizard DNA, example given, that’s where the moron had long served the shadow government’s interest. When Alex Jones takes a story and runs with it, it’s like the story has been consigned to nutjobville, not much worry many people looking for alternative to mainstream will buy in what’s presented at the ranting lunatic’s fringe media, not to mention the obvious: why didn’t Jones go after Mueller with Mueller’s sordid history of corruption?

What amazes myself about Gina Haspel’s confirmation to head of the Central Intelligence Agency is the established fact that she actually ran a black torture site but it’s as if this never happened. Like the snares all over the rabbit warren in the novel Watership Down, if they’re never mentioned, they can’t exist. Supplanting the fact Haspel was “Chief of Station” at a torture site are anemic questions in media such as ‘was she present at torture’, ‘did she collude in torture’, ‘did she destroy evidence of torture’, … well, sh*t, she RAN the site. What the f**k is reality here?

Gina Haspel official CIA portrait.jpg

Facile Haspel

facile |ˈfasəl|
adjective
1 (of a person) having a superficial or simplistic knowledge or approach: a woman of facile and shallow intellect.
2 easily achieved; effortless; acting or done in a quick, fluent, and easy manner: Gina Haspel was revealed to be a facile liar.

“Professional standards require intelligence professionals to lie, hide information, or use covert tactics to protect their “cover,” access, sources, and responsibilities. The Central Intelligence Agency expects, teaches, encourages, and controls these tactics so that the lies are consistent and supported (“backstopped”). The CIA expects intelligence officers to teach others to lie, deceive, steal, launder money, and perform a variety of other activities that would certainly be illegal if practiced in the United States. They call these tactics “tradecraft,” and intelligence officers practice them in all the world’s intelligence services” -Hulnick & Mattausch, “Ethics and Morality in U.S. Secret Intelligence”

Follows is what Gina Haspel perhaps could have said in closed hearing concerning her Senate confirmation (if someone trained to become an innate liar could know what truth is)

Statement for the Sealed Record
; Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in closed session with Central Intelligence Agency professional assassin Gina Haspel.

May 9, 2018

Chairman Burr, Vice Chairman Warner, members of the committee: Thank you for the opportunity to appear before you today. I am here because I have been nominated to send you a message via the Central Intelligence Agency – from the sponsors of men and women who are our country’s silent assassins. These dedicated professional killers spend much of their careers in difficult, far-flung outposts of the globe, striving to make our American corporate oligarchs, your paymasters, richer. Accordingly, sometimes we must bring our message ‘home.’ It has been the privilege of my professional life as a killer to be one of these CIA enforcers. Get it?

Now, Mike Pompeo has ordered President Trump to appoint me to lead this project and to continue the work that we began a little more than a year ago: ensuring that CIA is postured to make Mike Pence President of these Christian Dominion States of America. That challenge includes providing ongoing cover for terrorist groups; backstabbing Kim Jong Un via a nuclear deal with the United States employing the Libya model; destabilizing Iran with American adventurism; being aggressive and sometimes brutal with Russia; and related implications for Jesus return, through initiating Armageddon on the global stage. If this seems at odds with Jesus’ message to any of you, not to worry, we are predestined to Heaven as God’s “New Chosen”, in which case the end justifies any means.

While these challenges are daunting and offer few easy answers for someone whose post-college, pre-CIA career could never find better work opportunities than bank teller, assistant tutor, librarian, and briefly, paralegal requiring a few months training, I am confident and believe I have the resolve to meet them head on. When you confirm me as Director, no matter under implicit threat to your careers and even your lives, you have my solemn word that, via our commitment to ‘American Exceptionalism’ also known as ‘prosperity gospel’, I will employ agency assets to reward and make you richer in the future.

I welcome the opportunity to admit – for the first time – admissions are a new experience for me as I spent over 30 years under cover and in the shadows – I find torture deeply sexually gratifying. I think you will find me to be an atypical hedonist American but actually not that unusual and no stranger to our right wing religious-political class – one with no sense of right and wrong and one who loves this country for its opportunities provided to criminal psychopaths.

I was born in Backwater, Kentucky, and while my family has deeply inbred roots there, I was an Air Force “princess” and was dragged kicking and screaming by my father to postings all over the world. My childhood overseas instilled in me an animus for foreign cultures, and also a deeply appreciative narcissism concerning American aggression abroad.

I joined the CIA in 1985 as an operations officer in the Clandestine Service. From my first days in training, I resented I wasn’t pretty enough to play the ‘honey-pot’ role and receive the associated professional ‘strokes.’ My growing misandry excelled in murders that I accomplished with brush passes, poisoned needle dropping men dead, and especially the more grisly murders in dusty back allies of third world capitals. I recall my first foreign suspected double-agent murder was on a dark, moonless night with an agent I’d never met before. When I picked him up, he passed me the intelligence and I shot him with a silenced pistol in the head. The thrill of seeing his blood and brains splattered was the beginning of an adventure I had only dreamed of.

The men who ran CIA in those days leaned forward in giving me every opportunity to kill. I was so good because I so enjoyed it. When a very tough, old school leader announced that I was his pick to be Chief of Station for a black site torture post, a few colleagues stated to me directly “We know why they would send you.” I owe that leader much for believing in me at a time when few women were given these opportunities. I couldn’t have done without the long nights, masturbating to the screams at my station, intuitively recalling my favorite Huxley quote:

“At this very moment … Screams of pain and fear go pulsing through the air at the rate of eleven hundred feet per second. After traveling for three seconds they are perfectly inaudible. These are … facts; but do we enjoy life any the less because of them? Most certainly we do not”

I am proud of the torture by our agency including the successful eliciting of [false] confession, an operation that sent FBI on a failed chase for Black al-Qaida cells in Montana. That FBI failure cannot be a reflection on CIA product. Actually we try to keep the FBI distracted and pointed away from much of what we do.

By any standard, my life at the Agency – and it has been my life – has exceeded all of my expectations, from that day when I committed my first murder to today. There were few senior women leading at CIA in those days, and we are stronger now because that picture is changing. I did my part – with quiet murders – to break down those barriers. And I was proud to be the first woman assassin to serve as the number-two in the Clandestine Service. It is not my way to trumpet the fact that I am a woman men intensely fear, but I would be remiss in not remarking on it – not least because of the outpouring of support from young women killers at CIA who consider it a good sign for their own prospects.

My experience and success as an assassin led to three leadership positions in the Clandestine Service, and one year ago, I was asked to serve as Deputy Director of CIA. The reaction of the workforce to a rare nomination of one of their own to be Director – someone who has been in the trenches, murdering together with them – has been overwhelming. I am humbled by their confidence that I can successfully lead this Agency and inspired to work harder than ever to kill, to maintain that necrotic admiration.

They know that I don’t need time to learn the business of what CIA does. I know killing like the back of my hand. I know them, I know the threats we make, and I know what we need to be successful in our strategy of blackmail. I have played a leading role this past year in setting us on this dark but enlightened path and I intend on continuing on that path when I am confirmed as Director.

Our strategy starts with strengthening our core business: international narcotics trafficking and related black-budget arms smuggling advancing American interests around the globe. It includes raising our investment in the most difficult to conceal intelligence capers, putting more officers in terrorists groups where our allies are, and emphasizing assassinations excellence. And, finally, it involves investing in our moles within the US Government and strengthening our stake in organized crime around the globe.

We must do everything we can to follow through on these investments and to make CIA as murderous as it can possibly be, because our American corporate overseers deserve no less than CIA’s best effort.

This is especially true when it comes to creating threats from North Korea, Iran, Russia, and China. Today, CIA officers are deployed across the globe, sometimes at significant personal risk, murdering for any intelligence, no matter how insignificant. I have spent my entire career in murder operations and, when my confirmation has been rubber stamped, I will be able to leverage that experience against these hard targets beginning on day one.

I knew that accepting the president’s involuntary nomination would raise questions about CIA classified activities and my career at the Agency. I also understand that it is important for the American people to get to know me so they are able to judge a career killer’s fitness for this position. So over the last few weeks, we have created false documents to make more information about my professional record public. We have lied about every aspect of my career through classified channels with this Committee, as well as with the rest of the Senate.

I think it is important to recall the context of those challenging times immediately following 9/11. For me, I had just returned to Washington from an overseas posting and I reported for duty the morning of 9/11. I knew from insider information, when I saw the video of the first plane hitting the Tower in Manhattan, that it wasn’t Bin Ladin. I got up from my desk and, like many others, walked over to the Counterterrorism Center and volunteered to help with Dick Cheney’s staged Pearl Harbor. I didn’t leave for three years. We worked seven days a week engineering public opinion away from the real culprits, and I even had friends who postponed weddings and having babies. The men and women of CIA were driven to prevent the truth coming out. The first boots on the ground in Afghanistan, to mislead in this effort, were my colleagues. The first U.S. casualty in Afghanistan was a CIA officer who doubted and it was CIA who identified and captured the patsy of 9/11 in a brilliant operation. I am proud of our waterboarding during that time. The 80+ torture sessions we performed on that individual insure he will never recant his false confession. I learned from that experience and it informs my leadership of CIA today.

In light of my counterterrorism experience, I understand that what many people around the country want to know about are my views on CIA’s ostensibly ‘former’ detention and interrogation program. I have views on this issue, and I want to be clear. Having served in that tumultuous time, I can offer you my personal commitment, clearly and without reservation, that under my leadership CIA will not have to restart such a detention and interrogation program, it was never actually stopped. We farmed it out.

CIA has learned some tough lessons, especially when asked to tackle missions that fall outside our expertise. For me, there is no better example of implementing lessons learned than what the Agency took away from the detention and interrogation program. In retrospect it is clear, as the SSCI Majority Report concludes, that CIA was not prepared to conduct a detention and interrogation program. The problem is, we got caught.

Today, the US Government has a clear legal and policy framework that governs detentions and interrogations. Specifically, the law provides that no individual in US custody may be subjected to any interrogation technique or approach that is not authorized by and listed in the Army Field Manual. And by ‘Army Field Manual’ CIA intends those manuals laundered by our agency through the army for training Latin American death squad leadership at the School of the Americas in collaboration with certain of our assets embedded in Special Operations Forces. I fully support these standards for detainee treatment ‘authorized’ by law, and just as importantly, I will keep CIA focused on our deception mission that can best leverage the murderous expertise found at the Agency.

Like I said, we learned important lessons following 9/11. As a career intelligence officer I am a strong believer in the charade of oversight. Simply put, experience has taught us that CIA cannot be effective without cynically using the people’s trust. And we cannot pretend to earn that trust without the charade of accountability that comes with Congressional oversight. If we can’t share aspects of our secret work with the public, we never should do so with their elected representatives. For CIA, the charade of oversight is a vital link to the open society we consistently undermine. It’s a defining feature of the US Intelligence Community, and one of the many things that distinguishes us from the democratic principles our cover story demands we defend.

When confirmed as Director, I will uphold the Agency’s compulsion to lie to Congress and ensure that the charade of oversight works on behalf of the Agency.

Mr. Chairman, I want to thank you and the Committee for the hard work that is put into this charade of oversight process, and for the vital support that you provide to myself and my fellow criminals.

CIA has given a lot to me over the past three decades—a calling in service to organized crime, some real-life murders, and the profound satisfaction of serving with some of the top world class criminals anyone could ever meet.

When confirmed, I’ll insure your bank accounts are further padded for life. I know what you want from me and, I know, and you know as well, what the criminal cabal behind Mike Pence wants from yourselves and the CIA.

A note on the preceding lampoon of Haspel; the CIA editors at Wikipedia appear to have burnished her credentials, when the Wikipedia facts are at odds with the employment history form Haspel filled out for the Senate Intelligence committee, where her [not mentioned at Wikipedia] main post-college employ appears to have been “Bank Teller”, “Assistant Tutor” and “MOS Librarian” or better said ‘not so challenging’ jobs pointed to pre-CIA dead end career. ‘Brightest & best’ she is not.

Part two of ‘How Dumb is the CIA’

Rendition_Movie

^ Meryl Streep plays Alfreda Bikowsky

Ok, so I read a Glenn Greenwald (with Peter Mass) article at the Intercept and my jaw dropped. I have known for quite some time the CIA is often stupid (how else could Ray McGovern be an analyst there for 27 years) but this article mentioned a case that topped the cake with some sort of artificial, chemical White cream puff stuff, passed off as ‘intelligence.’

So, a CIA officer, Alfreda Bikowsky, who was one of the agency cabal that prevented information sharing with the FBI on the cell the USA alleges was responsible for 9/11, was responsible for ongoing torture (for months) of an innocent man before they figured out the guy they’d nabbed didn’t even spell his name the same as the guy they were looking for. And, CIA analyst Alfreda Bikowsky took a personal interest in torture that produced false evidence, right down to being present as a witness:

CIA_Dumbette

The screen shot from Wikipedia states Alfreda Bikowski was “so excited she flew at government expense to the black site where Mohammed was held so that she could personally watch him being waterboarded”

Right off, there are red flags aplenty indicating sub-par IQ, people who get off on torture are obviously pretty fucked up, with zero mentalities, but that’s only the beginning. Now we’ll have a look at where it goes beyond incomprehensively dumb, to outright dumfoundingly stupid. While Bikowski was getting off watching Kalid Sheikh Mohammed being water-boarded, here is the false intelligence that was not only elicited, because tortured people say whatever the torturer wants to hear, to get the torture stopped, but that the CIA actually attempted to follow up:

a single senior officer, who is still in a position of high authority over counterterrorism at the C.I.A.—a woman who he does not name—appears to have been a source of years’ worth of terrible judgment, with tragic consequences for the United States. Her story runs through the entire report. She dropped the ball when the C.I.A. was given information that might very well have prevented the 9/11 attacks; she gleefully participated in torture sessions afterward; she misinterpreted intelligence in such a way that it sent the C.I.A. on an absurd chase for Al Qaeda sleeper cells in Montana. And then she falsely told congressional overseers that the torture worked…

“…Somehow, the C.I.A. mistakenly believed that African-American Muslim terrorists were already in the United States. The intelligence officials evidently pressed K.S.M. so hard to confirm this, under such physical duress, that he eventually did, even though it was false—leading U.S. officials on a wild-goose chase for black Muslim Al Qaeda operatives in Montana”

Now, while chasing threads in this story, this is where my jaw drops. I happen to be from Montana, where most people only know of the existence of Blacks from television stereotype (ok, so this last statement is almost far-fetched.)

Montana. One million people. 0.6% Black. Zero-point-six-percent Black. Now, let me tell  you about those 0.6% or about 6,000 Black people in Montana (other census data gives 3,000.) The largest concentration of them are associated with the U.S. Air Force at Malstrom Air Force Base in Great Falls. They’re called dependents. The rest are scattered and isolated, likely from out of state, in the course of employment. There is essentially NO BLACK COMMUNITY in Montana. Missoula is a big town (Montana has no real ‘cities’) by Montana standards. Use google search .. ‘how many Blacks in Missoula’ .. the top hit-answer? “239”

Black-in-Missoula.jpg - 1

As well metropolitan Missoula has more Blacks than most Montana communities because it is a university town attracting out of state students and academics.

Now, of the ‘possible’ six thousand Blacks (the 3,000 figure is more likely) in all of Montana and its population of one million, how many are likely to be Muslim? 45 million Americans identify as Black. Of the 2.75 million Muslim Americans, it is estimated 632,000 (23%) are Black. Do the math. What are the chances of finding a Black Muslim in Montana’s zero-point-six-percent Black in a total one million population? Now, never mind the probability there are likely near negligible actionable al-Qaida sympathies in America’s Black Muslim community to begin with, if you could find a Black Muslim or maybe even two Black Muslims in Montana, by the CIA’s logic, they’d have to be al-Qaida because some Arab guy getting water-boarded, at a CIA ‘black site’ in Poland, said so.

Giving the CIA the most generous figure of 6,000 Blacks in Montana, together with using the government friendly PEW Research model of 9% of American Black Muslims harbor some sympathy towards al-Qaida…

Pew_Black_al-Qaida

…based on 6,000 Blacks (3,000 being the more likely figure) in Montana, there’s a statistical probability of approximately 7 Black persons in Montana with al-Qaida sympathies. Bearing in mind statistical probabilities and actual probabilities are not the same thing because of social & demographic anomalies such as Black Muslims who might sympathize with al-Qaida having given the USA a black eye will not often translate into willingness to take action of their own initiative (we cannot know the percentage of Blacks with al-Qaida sympathies that would actually act on those sympathies, likely very few), as well the fact of 45 million American Blacks to draw Montana’s Black population from, the statistical probability of any Black Muslims in Montana’s possible 6,000 Blacks is quite low already, where there is no Black community per se. Here is how the simple (rounded off) statistical probabilities stack up:

Montana’s Black population: ………………  0.6%

Montana’s Black Muslim: …………………..  0.008%

Montana’s Black al-Qaida sympathetic: ….. 0.0007%

Now, if we were to take the statistical probability one step further, to the point of how many ‘Blacks sympathetic to al-Qaida’ in Montana would be willing to carry out an actual attack, we are reduced to searching out a single body part among Montana’s 3,000 Blacks (the more likely reality) or 0.0003% probable statistic for the purposes of this essay; consequently we must conclude it’d be more likely to die from a meteor strike than terrorism due to a Black al-Qaida cell amounting to no more than a single ‘black’ hand:

With 0.0003% statistical probability of a Black al-Qaida sympathetic population to back up what amounts to a near certain reality of ZERO Black Muslims with al-Qaida sympathies actually willing to carry out terror relating to Montana, here is my report:

I probably have met more Blacks in Montana than most. I know a 1/2 Indian/Black ‘cousin’ (Native American traditional kinship relation), a woman, married to a White in Great Falls, daughter of a Black Air Force serviceman. Two Cree language fluent Black kids, foster children of a medicine man, also in Great Falls. A handful of mixed race Blackfoot Indians descended from the days a Black cavalry regiment had been stationed on their reservation (into the 1930s.) And Renoir.

Renoir was the lone Black living in Helena, Montana, in the 1980s. He spent time at the No Sweat Cafe, where once he’d been attempting to seduce a hot lesbian waitress. I was watching this, together with a Blackfoot acquaintance, and we were making a few observations in his indigenous language, so as to be discreet:

The Blackfoot: “What’s the ‘Black White Man’ think he’s going to accomplish?” (Black White Man is how ‘Black man’ translates)

Myself: “Perhaps he’ll discover his ‘White sugar’ is dangerous”

The Blackfoot: “Ah” (I see)

Myself to Renoir: “Saakks” (literally ‘you missed’ as in mistook your target)

Renoir: “What?” (he looks confused and turns to look at the waitress, as though she would understand Blackfoot language)

Hot lesbian waitress: “Couple of half-breeds” (dismissive, inaccurately referring to myself and the Blackfoot, as though that explains things)

The Blackfoot: Places his face in his palm and shakes his head

I doubt I’d ever seen ten real Blacks in Montana over the course of most of my life and I’ve just handed you all of my intelligence on the matter.

Ok, so there’s one more note-worthy item; it was during the Arab oil embargo I’d first left the northwest of Montana and traveled to Helena as a young man, this was in 1974 and I’d flown in by plane. As the plane made it’s approach over the city (of about 30,000 in those days), I happened to see the minaret that stands at the city center and it hit me…

…’the Saudis already own us.’ As it happens, and I shortly after discovered, this was Helena’s Civic Center with construction sponsored by a Montana chapter of Shriners International, a children’s charity mostly famous for driving miniature cars in parades (Montana’s style is opposite-outsized) having nothing to do with contemporary Islam:

Based on the Helena Civic Center architecture, the CIA most certainly has demanded the FBI investigate the Montana Shriners as an Islamic charity front for terrorism. No wonder the CIA became convinced Montana is populated with Black al-Qaida cells; Alfreda Bikowsky must’ve flown into Montana’s capital by plane (and noticed Renoir.) The end result? The  CIA had steadily PROMOTED Bikowsky towards the top of the agency food chain:

CIA_Red_Head

stupid |ˈst(y)o͞opid|
adjective (stupider, stupidest)
1) lacking intelligence or common sense: Renoir was too stupid to understand he was hitting on a lesbian.
2) dazed and unable to think clearly: Paranoia wrecked Alfreda’s brain, rendering her permanently stupid.

Afterthought: If it’d been someone other than Bikowsky in charge of the Bin-Ladin desk at the CIA’s ‘global jihad’ unit, maybe it wouldn’t have taken nearly so long as the ten years it took to track him down… in fact Seymour Hersch reports the CIA was never able to track down Bin Ladin, actually a Pakistani intelligence officer gave Bin Ladin’s location up for the $25 million reward (in a case that amounts to CIA ‘Ghost Busters’.)

But Seymour Hersh swallowed a baited hook. His detailing of the many lies involved with the Bin Ladin raid had missed the biggest lie of all:

It would seem Bikowski had been set up by her own superiors to chase down a man dead for a decade by the time of his reported death in 2011 (with the last reliable reporting from 2001 indicating Bin Ladin required regular dialysis – imagine a man with a prognosis of two years to live, maximum, hauling his dialysis machine around the Hindu Kush on mules), to keep Bin Ladin and his myth alive. It would be no wonder Bikowski was set up to hunt for a dead man, anyone dumb enough to search for Black Al Qaida in Montana would be perfect –
