The Rope-a-Dope of Iran and Hezbollah

How did “hundreds of kilograms” of ammonium nitrate suddenly morph into 2,750 tons, then get reduced by 1/2, prior to rendering 1/3 of the city of Beirut uninhabitable? Oh, and who did it? We could ask BND head, Bruno Kahl, to ring up his close friend, MOSSAD boss Yossi Cohen, for a start.

But first, it only takes a moment to back the telescopic lens off of Beirut to understand what we are actually looking at is a case of Iran/Hezbollah ‘rope-a-dope’ in cold geopolitical calculation on  a march towards a very hot war. Israel (or ‘Bibi’ and friends, not all Israelis are calculating criminals) are hell bent on dragging the USA into a war with Iran prior to November elections with no promise of a Trump victory; hence the multiple acts of sabotage (provocations) throughout Iran. The Ayatollahs and Hezbollah are meanwhile, letting Israel punch and punch again, but it is hard to say if Iran and Hezbollah’s intelligence assessments ruled out an Israeli attack erasing the port of Beirut (with 1/3 of the city collateral damage.) Maybe they understood there would be nothing they could do if Israel attacked the port with an outcome of a conventional explosion packing the punch of a tactical nuclear weapon.

Recalling the moron Bush & his ‘coalition of the willing’, the Emirates and Bahrain are being sucked into alliance with Israel (the Saudis are there, if not yet on paper, where Trump/Pence election needs are employing MOSSAD’s asset Kushner to exploit the Shia/Sunni divide) and all this points at what amounts to ‘foreplay’ in the orgiastic warmongers strategy.

In short, the deliberate erasure of the port of Beirut (with the ‘unfortunate’ rendering of nearly half the city uninhabitable) was a preemptive take-down of a Hezbollah supply line, anticipating the Iran aligned front opening on Israel’s northern frontier. This is little more than a preliminary.

Relevant to this, in the Spring of 2020, with a vigorous effort of MOSSAD (years in the making), Germany outlawed Hezbollah’s political wing. Part of the Israeli endeavor had been to produce convincing evidence Hezbollah had been storing “hundreds of kilograms” of ammonium nitrate at a port warehouse in Beirut. [1]

The many hundred of tons of ammonium nitrate reduced to hundreds of kilos by MOSSAD reporting is simple ‘cover your ass’ disinformation; when the Israelis took a decision to eliminate (detonate) the explosive (and if caught), it could be claimed the vast amount was not knowledge in the hands of the saboteurs or other elements of the Israeli state ostensibly going after a Hezbollah weapons stash. The objective of severely damaging Hezbollah’s logistics by wiping the port of Beirut out of the upcoming war equation has been accomplished.

Incidental to the preceding:

Despite the reporting of 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate detonated, the blast was actually half of that according to a recent Lebanese interior minister, the other half having been “stolen” (read removed by Hezbollah) over the years. [2]

Evidence of the Israeli strike on the port is forthcoming from state sources in Israel itself. [3]

And then:

“Channel 12’s source described Bruno Kahl, chief of Germany’s Federal Intelligence Service (BND) as “a close friend of Mossad.”” [at [1] ibid]

The intelligence agencies are “crime organizations with a license” (quoting Tamir Pardo, former director of MOSSAD) somehow exempt from all law, including, it would appear, every human rights convention. Germany’s Bruno Kahl knows what happened (was complicit in the political preparations), as well, Trump was correctly informed when he stated the Beirut blast was an “attack.”

“Iran has said the explosions should not be “politicized,” while French President Emmanuel Macron, who has assumed an outsized role in managing the fallout and on Thursday demanded an international probe, as of Sunday judged there was “enough objective evidence” to judge the double blasts as “accidental” [4]

Everyone is lying on this march towards opportunity at literal Armageddon (co-engineered by Mike Pence i.e. Trump’s apocalyptic, 90 million strong, evangelical base’s theology), where Iran dare not be seen to take the initiative in what appears to be inevitable, upcoming war, Hezbollah cannot take responsibility for its port weapons facilities (including 1,350 tons of ammonium nitrate remainder after years exfiltration of explosive), Israel cannot admit it blew the ammonium nitrate up, Germany cannot openly & honestly point its finger at the perpetrator known to the intelligence agencies (a small matter of national ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ due to certain historical factors) and Pence and his Generals no doubt told Trump to “shut up.”

And Bibi? Well…

This is a follow-on to the excellent reporting by Russell Bentley at Fort Russ News, as well, this author’s initial piece at Fort Russ on the subject of Flight 752.

In the downing of Flight 752 we’ll look at three kilogram verses fifteen kilogram warheads and a direct hit versus a ‘proximity’ detonation. [1], [2]

A proximity detonation is preferred over a direct hit in surface to air missile defense against hostile aircraft. [3]

The rationale behind designing anti-aircraft, surface to air missiles, for proximity detonations is simple. The initial rationale for proximity was a narrow miss in the early days. As accuracy and dependability improved, proximity fuses were often kept, in addition to impact fuse, as it had been discovered an aircraft’s air-frame can actually contain the effect of the explosive warhead, depending on the design of the aircraft and the location of impact. A modern missile guided to proximity detonation (a mere few feet away from the aircraft) is likely to inflict greater damage, more often than not, because the shrapnel from the high explosive warhead has a better chance at penetrating and damaging a wider area of the target, more readily compromising critical flight control systems (especially wing-flaps and associated hydraulics.) This is why light mobile combat systems such as the Russian Strela 10’s early and middle models (through 1988) with a three kilo warhead had both impact and proximity fuses. The Strela, proximity fused three kilogram warhead used by Iraq in Desert Storm (1991) was capable of taking down the American A-10 ‘Warthog’ (two A-10s shot down by this missile, according to the American military), one of the toughest planes to shoot down with ground-fire in modern combat (to this day.) [4]

By the era of the Stinger, very effective against Soviet helicopters in Afghanistan, missiles had become so maneuverable and accurate, the Stinger was only adapted for a proximity fuse in later (recent) development phases; to be effective against very small (difficult to direct hit) UAVs (drones.) The three kilo (average) warhead launched with a MANPAD (shoulder launched) surface to air missile, it was likely a Stinger FIM-92J (proximity fused warhead), provided by CIA to the so-called ‘moderate opposition’, is what had brought down a SU-25 in Syria:

 

As well, it may have been (likely was) a Russian made IGLA (SA-24) with a 2.5 kilo warhead brought down an AN-30 over Ukraine:

What is noticeable with the much larger AN-30 is, with the starboard (right) engine on fire after having been hit with a 2.5 kilogram MANPAD warhead, the plane is stable and keeps course as the crew is bailing out. What the crew understands is, the heat of the fire will quickly compromise the aluminum alloy of the plane’s wing structure, which should soon buckle and there will be no control. It is better to parachute out before that happens.

What we have (very briefly) looked at to now is what 3 kilo heat-seeking warheads can do to military planes, the smaller planes tend to go down more quickly, more often than not, with immediate loss of control, is the main difference. The smaller SU-25 jet’s wing mounted engines (the heat-seeking target) are more tightly integrated to the main air-frame and wing control flaps. A larger plane has a better chance at keeping control, but the control won’t last long if the plane is on fire, and fire is what happens when heat-seeking warheads hit jet engines.

Of course, bailing out with parachutes is not an option for the passengers and crew of a Boeing 737-800, a medium size passenger jet not all that much larger than the AN-30 in the (2nd, above) video.

All of the preceding would be consistent with Iran initially reporting they believed a ‘technical issue’ or engine fire was the culprit that brought down Flight 752 if they were unaware of a missile launch.

Now, the Flight 752 story begins to become problematic at many levels.

A MANPAD heat-seeking missile has small cross-section and radar signature but it does show up on radar. With its’ small signature, it might be understandable if a MANPAD  were missed or somehow interpreted as an anomaly by civilian operators of traffic control at an international airport, but that shouldn’t be the case with a larger missile. For example, a Stinger MANPAD has a missile diameter of 70mm versus 235mm diameter of the Tor m1 missile attributed to shooting down Flight 752. One should expect a Tor M1 missile(s) would have been picked up by the civilian air traffic control radar at Tehran’s international airport. So, already the Iranian story is showing a hole, when it is supposedly ascertained no one but the military knew what had happened. Over at John Helmer’s blog the (increasingly demonstrated to be false) Iranian story is set out very well. [5]

““The plane has been hit at a low altitude by a short-range missile with a small warhead and proximity fuze,” Hajizadeh reported. “It has exploded at the proximity [of the aircraft]; so the plane has found the chance to fly for a while; it hasn’t exploded in the air. After hitting the ground, it has collapsed. So no one at the [Iran Civil] Aviation Organisation knew about it, and I should defend my dear brothers there.””

This is not a particularly convincing deceit on more than one ground; on top of no explanation as to why the civil airport radar didn’t pick the missile up, there is a problem with the missile strike description. We have seen what a 3 kilogram warhead can do to aircraft already. The Tor M1 warhead is fifteen kilograms, this is NOT a small warhead (the Iranians are claiming a 7 kilo warhead but I don’t buy it and 7 kilos is still double what had brought down the AN 30.) A ‘proximity’ strike (mere feet from the aircraft with the thoroughly modern Tor system), should be devastating to a Boeing 737. By comparison, the superman of SAM systems, the S-400, uses a 24 kilo warhead in typical air defense configuration (excludes the ‘below the horizon, search and destroy’ warhead, an entirely different purposed missile.)

Then, John Helmer weighs in as this reporter is composing:

In the initial reporting from the Iranian side, we’d seen [6]

“Qassem Biniaz, an official at the Iranian Ministry of Roads and Urban Development, told state news agency IRNA that an engine caught fire and the pilot was unable to regain control” [6]

Firstly, loss of control is not the immediate effect of an engine fire, loss of control comes after the aluminum alloy structure has been compromised, this is when there will be no regaining of control, but this may actually what had been referred to.

The Western reaction:

“…the U.S. manufacturer does not believe a 3-year-old airplane that just underwent inspection days before caught on fire.

“That aside, an engine fire doesn’t rule out a missile,” the source said. “A missile strike itself could’ve caused the fire. The explanation is ridiculous and the conclusion is more than suspicious.” [7]

The Boeing ‘source’ is actually helpful, if he only knew how: a plane with an engine fire from a missile, that keeps a bit of control, is going to, nearly every time, come down from having been hit by a MANPAD.

We do know the pilot had been able to turn the plane back towards the airport, and the preceding would be consistent with both, a MANPAD strike and a lack of complete understanding of the circumstance; before the Iranians had time to line up all the possible duck configurations, discover the facts and make a decision as to how to proceed with what this author is convinced had been a MANPAD take-down of Flight 752 by a Western intelligence cell inside Iran.

It follows, ultimately Iran decided to take on a false accountability for two simple but compelling reasons; 1) the international institutions and Western press are bought little different to referees and judges can be bribed to determine a boxing match outcome & 2) Western cells operating within Iran to point of bringing down Flight 752 would be a serious black eye to the domestic perception of Iranian security, weakening the regime in the public perception. Falsely swallowing responsibility is the path of least immediate damage to the Iranian governing institution, both internally and externally.

The stupidity on the Western side in this is, yeah, you hit the ayatollahs below the belt and got away with it, but you also likely convinced them there can never be a genuine détente with Western institutions, ever.

Is something like this what happened? Lots of ‘smoke to clear’ yet in emerging picture but the entire business just goes on smelling wrong –

11 January update: The Iranian military has released a statement (English version) claiming responsibility, but point 3 is patent BS:

“3- Under such sensitive and critical circumstances, the Ukrainian airline’s Flight PS752 took off from Imam Khomeini Airport, and when turning around, it approached a sensitive military site of the IRGC, taking the shape and altitude of a hostile target. In such conditions, due to human error and in an unintentional move, the airplane was hit [by the Air Defence], which caused the martyrdom of a number of our compatriots and the deaths of several foreign nationals”

That’s just not a tenable position unless the SAM operators (crew, not one individual, the launch officer should have not only input from the screen operator, but should oversee the radar tracking, looking at all indicators himself) PANICKED and launched on what could only morph into the “shape and altitude of a hostile target” in the radar crew’s fantasy. This aspect of the explanation  does not convince, it ignores too many indicators this was a civilian flight. Is taking responsibility for the shootdown the least damaging (to the Iran security establishment’s domestic reputation) means of laying the issue to rest? Iran’s explanation leaves some loose threads hanging, not least an Iranian shootdown would have been reported immediately via chain of command to leadership; which should bring the initial denials under close scrutiny. In such any case, rather there should have been a non-committal ‘let’s see what the investigation determines.’

My thanks to Russell Bentley, for the timely heads up in the comments at Fort Russ.

manpad - 1

So, the  Canadians (Justin Trudeau, a midget political caricature in the shadow of his father) have ‘intelligence’ showing Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 had been ‘inadvertently’ shot down by the Iranians. Meanwhile the New York Times has come into possession of a video, they had time to have professionally analyzed, showing UIA 752 had been struck by missile. Newsweek reports Ukrainian intelligence has identified fragments of a Tor M1 surface to air missile circulating on social media, ostensibly found in a Tehran suburb. The Tor M1 is a Russian built short range surface to air missile Iran possesses and plainly expected to be on high alert (launch ready) at the time of UIA 752’s departure from Tehran, due to Iran’s strike on the USA bases in Iraq.

So far, so frog, all is consistent with a ‘fog of war’ scenario where the Iranian forces had brought down the civilian jet. But wait a minute.

The first red flag is how quickly all of this was put together for Western media. It was simply too fast.

The second red flag is the video itself. Why, would anyone be recording an empty night sky that does not show flight 752 (at a distance, invisible in the dark) except they would be expecting to see something, and wellah, a missile appears to come from the left of the otherwise empty sky and boom! .. lights up the night sky with a strike on the (otherwise invisible) civilian liner. That kind of stinks, particularly since the otherwise pointless (clearly a psychic compelled someone to film an empty night sky) video immediately ends up in the hands of Western media.

Third, unlike the Ukrainians, the Iranian military is not populated with demoralized, undisciplined drunks who shoot down civilian liners with SAM systems (such as the face-saving device offered to the Western states by Russia, for Ukraine actually having shot down MH 17 with a combat jet.) The Iranians are a highly professional, motivated, well trained caliber of military with a high state of self discipline.

The thoroughly modern Tor M1 system would, via IFF (Identification, Friend or foe), the civilian jet’s transponder, speed, trajectory and flight path, clearly identify Flight 752 as a civilian flight departing Tehran. What’s more is, any radar tracking an actual hostile target would have seen its approach originating from outside a circumference surrounding Tehran. By the time the civilian plane had been turning, its’ point of origin should have already been established within this circumference, i.e. the international airport.

The odd fact as yet unexplained; why UIA 752’s departure time coincided with Iran’s missile launch on the American bases? A priority given to the passengers getting out of Iran with the possibility of escalating tit for tat exchange? And why, other than flight crew, why were there practically no Ukrainians on UIA 752 to Kiev? That seems out of ordinary as well. Was this somehow promoted as an evacuation flight?

Throw into the mix of this the several experts indicating Iran had signaled to the USA the time and targets of the Iranian missiles launch on the American bases in Iraq, to minimalize escalation, and you have all of the necessary elements for a Western intelligence cell in Iran to prepare for recording itself bringing down the Ukrainian flight with a manpad (shoulder launched surface to air missile.) Insofar as producing Tor M1 fragments, this system is widespread across the geopolitical spectrum, even NATO  states possess this system, example given is Greece. Planting these pieces (whether in a Tehran suburb or elsewhere mimicking a Tehran location) to be promptly spread on social media (where military and intelligence agencies maintain thousands of fake profiles), you can pin the fault on the Iranians. This sends a message ‘we can strike inside Iran’ and, as well, causes Iran civil aviation problems on the world stage.

Is this what actually happened? It would explain the Iranians immediate denials, as simple as their launch systems people would probably (and likely truthfully) report no Tor M1 had been fired.

War crimes are nothing new in regards to the West directed at Iran, after all, the cynical inside joke at Department of State over the 2003 rationale for invading Iraq was, ‘yeah, we know they have chemical weapons, we gave them to Saddam to use on Iran.’

Of course this is entirely speculation, the case could go either way and we shall see what happens with the already argued over investigative efforts… but in my opinion the Western media presentation smells bad, the picture emerged too quickly, too conveniently.

11 January (2nd update) in the comments at Ft Russ, Russell Bentley has this to say:

“You know, something still smells fishy about this. In my research yesterday, I discovered the SA-15 actually has two targeting systems – Radar and TV. The TV is a visual system, all weather, day/night, NV/IR, with first class optics and a 20 Km range. The radar has a 25 Km range, but the missiles have a 15 Km range, max. So if they could hit it, they HAD to be able to see it. And as you said, the SA-15’s were part of an integrated system, and would have known that a sudden appearance of a blip on the screen without prior warning from longer range systems located closer to the border would have required double checking. And your point about turning – as I understand, it did not turn until after it was hit by the first missile. (And BTW, it appears to have been hit by TWO missiles, while it was going 316 MPH at an altitude of less than 8,000 feet, well within range of Strela, Igla, Stinger, Polish Grom and British Starstreak MANPADS.) It’s original flight path, towards Parand, is 180 degrees away from the Aria military airfield, and 90 degrees away from Tehran. In fact, the flight path would have been very similar to what Iranian AF jets would have taken if they were going to intercept incoming enemy aircraft from Iraq, so it is really hardly believable that an outgoing 737 could be mistaken for an incoming “bogey”. Particularly when you consider the IRGCAF’s (utterly non-existent) reputation for “panic and incompetence””

My Reply:

“It is entirely feasible the Iranians decided to falsely swallow responsibility as the easiest means of deflecting the several possibilities for complications, both external & internal. As a matter of fact, I actually think that’s what Saudi Arabia ultimately decided to do in the case of Jamal Khashoggi. S**t is flung in deeply devious ways in geopolitics, it comes with the territory (in a severely messed up world.)”

 

Suleimani - 1

Was Soleimani an enemy of Americans? Without question, this was the case. But who created him? How did Soleimani become an enemy of the USA? Plain and simple, American policy is squarely to blame.

In short, it was 1953 when the CIA overthrew the democratic government of Iran and converted Shah Reza Pahlavi into an absolute monarch who promptly morphed into a brutal dictator infamous for the widespread torture & executions of his own people. The Shah’s new secret police (created in 1956), SAVAK, trained in kidnapping, torture and disappearing people by CIA, MI6 & MOSSAD, crudely propped up this iteration of Iranian ‘governance’ with domestic state terror to 1979.

By this time, Iranian people across widely divergent political paths had been long united in determination to be rid of both; the Shah and the foreign influence that had propped up his murderous rule for 25 years, leading to capture of the USA embassy by the Iranian student movement.

As it happens, the dust settled after the revolution of 1979 and it was the conservative ayatollahs came out on top and a theocratic republic had been established in Iran. Since, this Islamic republic has zealously refused the influence of the USA and Israel’s regional hegemony (Britain had faded from this equation as a major player but that could change.)

Who could blame the Iranians? There has been nothing short of ongoing decades hostility directed at Iran, resulting in an Iranian patriotism devoted to a sincere antipathy to Zionism, whether that of Israel’s “Yinon Plan” or the necrotic-apocalyptic Christian Zionism of the USA that is backing habitual Israeli regional-geopolitical misdemeanors; up to and inclusive of USA support for Israeli assassination of Iranian scientists in recent times, generating support for the ayatollahs across Iranian society.

Soleimani was brilliant at undermining USA/Israeli interests in Syria, Lebanon & Iraq. There is little doubt his efforts have helped the Houthis versus the Saudis in Yemen. He was also key in organizing the main effort which led to defeating the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq (it were never a black & white world.) No doubt he would have seen Iran’s enemy al-Qaida (and its’ spinoff Islamic State) as a USA production and not without reason; al-Qaida was born out of the USA arming the Mujahideen against the Soviets in 1980s Afghanistan. This all goes to the Iranian understanding (context) of American-Israeli duplicity when the Americans and Israelis were arming both sides in the Iran-Iraq war of the 1980s (Iran-Contra) so both parties might better tear themselves to pieces.

Iran has little reason to be grateful to the USA in both; practical and historical terms. From an Iranian national point of view, Iran has every reason to be more than suspicious of any regional acts of the Americans, in practical terms creating perception leading to policy where Iranian national self preservation demands a hostile demeanor towards the USA.

Will the assassination of Suleimani change any of this? In terms of Iranian policy, no, it only reinforces the preceding. In terms of brilliance applied by the Iranians towards their perceived enemies, it could go either way; removing Suleimani might open to lesser or greater minds taking up his assigned duties. In terms of practical application of violence, likely yes, the Americans just opened themselves to the assassination of their own in what should have been off-limits territories: the international airports of this world. This last is consistent with the (as old as Rome) rule of reciprocity in the international common law. This was an overt act of war.

The assassination of Qassem Alì Soleimani was a tremendous blunder that is entirely at odds with Trump’s protestations he does not want war with Iran. But the assassination is entirely consistent with the apocalyptic (Fellowship) cult behind Mike Pence and the leadership at the Pentagon.

I’m no fan of Iran’s ayatollahs but there should be a genuflection to the facts: American policies create America’s enemies and Iran is no exception, rather this act is example of the American empire’s hubris.

“we make sure that we pray and stand and fight and make sure that we know that Jesus Christ is our savior is truly the only solution for our world” -Mike Pompeo

The Israeli Zionists and Christian Zionists have both; common and opposed motivations for war with Iran. The Israelis well know the Christians fully intend all Jews will either convert or die at the Battle of Armageddon according to their perverted theology but meanwhile the two sleep together, the Israelis self-destructively milking the USA war machine to realize the Yinon Plan (Greater Israel in a ‘Balkanized’ Middle East) while the Christian ‘Dominionists’ ‘prayerfully’ support these endeavors in pursuit of what will amount to Götterdämmerung for both.

Relevant to this preceding, a present conundrum of evil is not who and whether, but when, to make war on Iran. Who are the American shadow government players? We begin with looking into what Mark Gorton calls “The Enterprise”…

“The tools of the cabal include domestic [and foreign] death squads, political prisoners, Orwellian control of the media, domestic spying and domestic (and international) terrorist attacks. The cabal has partnered with some of the worst people on earth including, Nazis, drug dealers, terrorists, the mafia, cults, mass murderers, child molesters and pedophiles” [1]

…and comparing it to what Jeff Sharlet describes as ongoing in “The Family”…

“One needn’t be a Marxist to find fault with the Family’s mash-up of New Testament and unfettered capitalism — Adam Smith himself would have recognized that theology as a disingenuous form of self-interest by proxy. Such interests have led the Family into some strange alliances over the years. Seduced by the Indonesian dictator Suharto’s militant anti-communism, they described the murder of hundreds of thousands that brought him to power as a “spiritual revolution,” and sent delegations of congressmen and oil executives to pray to Jesus with the Muslim leader. In Africa, they anointed the Somali killer Siad Barre as God’s man and sent Sen. Grassley and a defense contractor as emissaries. Barre described himself as a “Koranic Marxist,” but he agreed to pray to Grassley’s American Christ in return for American military aid, which he then used to wreak a biblical terror on his nation. It has not yet recovered” [2]

…followed on with with a comparison to Wayne Madsen’s research…

“By 1957, ICL [International Christian Leadership, a ‘Family’ corporate euphemism or front] had established 125 groups in 100 cities, with 16 groups in Washington, DC alone. Around the world, it had set up another 125 groups in Canada, Britain, Germany, France, Northern Ireland, Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Switzerland, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, Ethiopia (where Emperor Haile Selassie gave ICL property in Addis Ababa to build its African headquarters), India, South Vietnam, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Philippines, Australia, New Zealand, Guatemala, Cuba, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Bermuda. ICL’s international activities coincided with activities in countries where the CIA was particularly active – an obvious by-product of the close cooperation between [founder Abraham] Vereide and the CIA’s Allen Dulles and James Jesus Angleton. Angleton and his close associate, Miles Copeland, favored using private businessmen to conduct operations that the CIA was barred from conducting statutorily [lawfully.] The ICL fit the bill very nicely” [3]

…these preceding are clearly the same organization. Whether you call them affiliates or fronts, The International Christian Leadership (ICL), The Navigators and The Family amount to a single talent pool from which cells are built, along the line of intelligence agency organizations. GHW Bush, although it did not originate with him, was at the nexus of welding this pseudo religious crime organization into the USA government over decades, where it has consequently spread throughout the NATO hierarchy (and elsewhere) via the USA military. This is what L Fletcher Prouty was writing about 50 years ago with his description of ‘The Secret Team’

“For all its fabrication and apparent unreality, especially in this open society, the ST [Secret Team] machine does have a central soul or brain… or perhaps… holy spirit. It is the evidence of a form of new religion. It has its secrets. It has its divine and unquestioned rights and obligations. It has self-righteous power over life and death. It does not believe in anything. It does not value anything. It is utterly ruthless” [4]

When George H.W. Bush had become the executive officer, it was Vereide’s heir, Doug Coe, had been the captain who delegated authority and ‘blessed’ GHW Bush into the driver seat not long after the death of Abraham Vereide (d.1969.) Preceding Bush having consolidated control over the executive arm in 1970 (with Coe’s ‘blessing’, like a mafia godfather) Allen Dulles (d.1969) had been the previous undisputed ‘executive officer’ of this ‘Christian mafia.’ Dulles had been a WWI military intelligence officer, a Nazi sympathizing traitor throughout WWII, ran the CIA over the majority of the Opus Dei (Vatican) ‘rat line’ years (cooperating with Opus Dei rescuing Nazi war criminals from justice) and was ultimately responsible for subverting the CIA, the operations sector particularly, into a tool of ‘The Family’ which had itself been organized into cells on intelligence agency model.

Insofar as what’s happening now, I suspect the other criminal heavy-weight in the ring, MOSSAD, is aiming at Trump to get a more pliable Mike Pence finger on the USA trigger re Iran. Then, it gets complicated (just a little bit.)

The recalcitrant wheeler-dealer Trump, whose stubborn inclination is to follow his own reasoning, as opposed to obeying the treasonous war-mongers surrounding him, has become a mythical hero in the American conservative religious and alt-right communities, as well picking up the support of a large block of independent voters thoroughly disgusted at the corrupt antics of the Democratic National Committee and associated liberal ‘identity’ politics; in circumstance where disposing of him would be a delicate business in relation to social unrest. As well, Mike Pence needs Donald Trump as a figurehead as it is a fairly clear-cut thing ‘family man’ Pence can’t do without Trump in the next election cycle. Pence won’t want ‘The Donald’ disposed of prior to the 2020 election cycle; but the Israelis have no such compunction; they want a war with Iran -ASAP- considering there’s no certain promise the next election cycle will deliver the USA’s armies as proxy. In a cold calculation, the Israelis understand, with ‘The Donald’ disposed of, Pence will need war with Iran as a political necessity.

Meanwhile, figures like Bolton simply can’t say no to the Israeli war hawk line, whether for personality defect or for other reason ‘yet’ to be determined.

Now, to the Epstein issue. Almost no one knows the intelligence agencies have a designer drug that both; breaks down the will and super-enhances sexual acts via a distorted sense of time (not only heightened sensuality.) Most blackmail targets who’d been unwittingly drugged wouldn’t care in the moment of sex with underage kids provided to them, even if they knew they were being recorded. Think Homer’s Odyssey and the sirens where Odysseus was tied to the mast of his ship and his crews’ ears plugged with beeswax. Only the USA’s ship of state (and ultimately, the NATO nations and more) had no captain the equal of Odysseus and no beeswax for its crew. The only question (in my thinking) is who has recordings of who.

Certainly ‘The Family’ would have been a target of MOSSAD for decades and when it comes to certain ‘advances’ in designer drugs, it would appear the traditionally right-wing, nationalist MOSSAD would discover fertile ground in the ‘family’ environment:

“he asked a young man who’d put himself, body and soul, under the Family’s authority, “Let’s say I hear you raped three little girls. What would I think of you?” The man guessed that Coe would probably think that he was a monster. “No,” answered Coe, “I wouldn’t.” Why? Because, as a member of the Family, he’s among what Family leaders refer to as the “new chosen.” If you’re chosen, the normal rules don’t apply” [5]

Had Epstein been a pawn of MOSSAD? Former CIA officer Phil Giraldi believes it could easily be so:

“Selective inquiries into wrongdoing to include intense finger pointing are the name of the game in Washington, and the affaire Epstein also has all the hallmarks of a major espionage case, possibly tied to Israel. Unless Epstein is an extremely sick pedophile who enjoys watching films of other men screwing twelve-year-old girls the whole filming procedure smacks of a sophisticated intelligence service compiling material to blackmail prominent politicians and other public figures. Those blackmailed would undoubtedly in most cases cooperate with the foreign government involved to avoid a major scandal. It is called recruiting “agents of influence.” That is how intelligence agencies work and it is what they do” [6]

Plausibly we are (in the present moment) looking at the symptoms of a developing underground war between Zionist camps; ‘The Family’ Christian Zionist centered crime organization versus Bibi’s nationalist coalition, not so much as for the fact of upcoming war with Iran but the WHEN.

Insofar as MOSSAD’s organizational ability and influence in the USA, there are two documents come to mind to refer those reading here to, 1) the CIA assessment of MOSSAD that came into the public domain when the Iranian students took over the USA embassy in 1979 (subsequently published as a paperback one could purchase at nearly any newspaper kiosk in Tehran)…

“There are numerous persons in Israel who have a thorough area and language knowledge of any area of interest to the intelligence services. These area experts can render extremely valuable assistance in analyzing intelligence information and formulating country requirements, thus contributing to the total operational potential since they enable Israeli intelligence officers to estimate rapidly the efficiency and reliability of their agents and informants. These persons are also useful for their ability to pass completely for a citizen of the nation in question. The Israeli talent for counterfeiting or forging passports and documents ably supports the agent’s authenticity. [bold RTW; per the pervasive habit of Israeli-American dual citizenship]

“The Israeli intelligence service depends heavily on the various Jewish communities and organizations abroad for recruiting agents and eliciting general information. The aggressively ideological nature of Zionism, which emphasizes that all Jews belong to Israel and must return to Israel, had had its drawbacks in enlisting support for intelligence operations, however, since there is considerable opposition to Zionism among Jews througout the world. Aware of this fact, Israeli intelligence representatives usually operate discreetly within Jewish communities and are under instructions to handle their missions with utmost tact to avoid embarrassment to Israel. They also attempt to penetrate anti-Zionist elements in order to neutralize the opposition” [7]

…and 2) Ron Unz’s recent American Pravda piece (short history) detailing a ‘higher order’ of Jewish organized crime in California centered out of Chicago. Although the Unz piece does not deal with consequent MOSSAD activities, it certainly paints a picture of an environment ripe for exploitation. [8]

Meanwhile here is a fairly contemporary thumbnail of ‘The Family’ influences surrounding Trump excluding the Pentagon which is touched on in this author’s immediate preceding article “Pentagon Pedophiles” [9]

Who was Doug Coe? (d. February 2017.) The spiritual guru of MIKE PENCE. What is Doug Coe all about? In his own words:

“You know Jesus said ‘You got to put Him before mother-father-brother sister? Hitler, Lenin, Mao, that’s what they taught the kids. Mao even had the kids killing their own mother and father. But it wasn’t murder. It was for building the new nation. The new kingdom” –Doug Coe [10]

It was Mike Pence attended the meeting where Donald Trump was introduced to Doug Coe [11]

Coe meets Pence - 1

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

Here is Doug Coe in his own words, the spitting cobra speaks for himself [12]

Beginning at minute 5:30 of the above video:

“Jesus said you have to put me before other people. And you have to put me before yourself. Hitler, that was a demand to be in the Nazi Party. You have to put the Nazi Party and its objectives ahead of your own life, and ahead of other people”

Coe goes on to say:

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

And then:

“If you’re going to have any movement that moves men and nations, you have to have that kind of commitment”

Yep. Pence’s guru just stated you need make a commitment to following the principles, and emulating the behaviors of, History’s biggest mass murderers, to move their ‘Christian’ agenda forward. If you keep listening, it doesn’t get any better.

Who are the ‘Navigators’ Pence’s long time spiritual guru had been addressing? An elite right-wing (actually Nazi) international Christian proselytizing organization with a 100 million dollar (+) annual budget. Probably it should come as no surprise the Navigator organization Coe preached to has for its registered symbol a neo-Nazi cross that also features in the Klu Klux Klan decor kit [13]

Coe-Navigator - 1

“Each part of The Wheel® Illustration represents a crucially important component of a vibrant violent Christian life” [quote correction RTW]

Compared to the contemporary neo-nazi decor at duck-duck-go:

Navigator_Circle - 1

Is the on again, off again CIA-MOSSAD collaboration a case of the ‘Anti-Semites Who Loved Jews…And the Jews Who (Sometimes) Loved Them Back’ ? [14]

Spengler love? - 1

Not really. The CIA/MOSSAD bad marriage is more a case of an exclusive ‘serial-killers only’ swingers’ club where everybody is tired of the limited opportunity at couplings, yet their sex addiction requires everyone screwing everyone out of habit and everyone hates everyone’s guts. At some point, the entire crew will resort to the new mass murder, initiating the upcoming war with Iran, to get it all back on track. It’s only a matter of when.

And then we have:

“These cells operated, as many of the Family’s projects do, through God – “the Catholic generals and colonels who rotated coup by coup through the leadership of Brazil, Guatemala, El Salvador … consented to the Protestant ministrations of the Fellowship in return for access to American congressman”” [15]

The Opus Dei Catholic branch figures in Steve Bannon’s plausible ‘girlfriend’ hard-right-closet-fag-cum-homophobe Cardinal Raymond Burke (a deserving sobriquet as contrasted to those naturally inclined to be gay but are honest, modest, and demonstrably ethical) [16]

burke

bannon_burke-jpg-1

…who profiles as identifying with the present day Catholic Church Nazis the open and honest gay theologian David Berger had blown the whistle on and I somehow (sense of smell) strongly doubt you’re going to find any sincere friendliness towards Jews in this next mix [17]

Self-supressed Catholic priests - 1

“Hitler was praised for having interned and murdered homosexuals in concentration camps

“They talk about a supposed Jewish global conspiracy or about how to keep emancipators, freemasons and gays out of the church

“The fiercest homophobia in the Catholic Church comes from homophile clerics who desperately suppress their own sexuality

“the Vatican is .. relying increasingly on reactionary troops. It is closing ranks with evangelists, bible fundamentals and extremely reactionary forces”

This last, preceding quote then brings us to closet fascist Mario Bergoglio’s meeting with Doug Coe [18], [19]

Coe meets Pope - 1

At the end of the day, pedophilia enabled blackmail seems evident in every direction; ‘The Family’ will have opportunity at the Catholic church, the Israelis will have it over both and The Family’s CIA should have it on the MOSSAD assets in the USA (Epstein.) Where does it begin and where will it end? We all should know soon enough, depending on who gets the upper hand on the 2020 election cycle (that is when the bombs start dropping.)

‘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?

“Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you” -Chuck Schumer

Well, Schumer is likely correct in the preceding but there’s a very questionable follow-on…

“Whether you are a super liberal Democrat or a very conservative Republican, you should be against dismantling the intelligence community” -Chuck Schumer

I’m not aware Trump has called for ‘dismantling’ the intelligence community per se but it should be mentioned in the context of Schumer warning everyone ‘don’t go there’, there have been numerous, I would characterize as responsible, calls over the years to dismantle the operations sector of the CIA. But maybe Schumer’s protective scare-mongering over the matter of our notoriously corrupt intelligence agencies goes to a deeper matter; the matter of the most powerful intelligence agency operating in the USA is MOSSAD, an entity which has penetrated every aspect of American governance. And then recall we are dealing with Zionists, whether the hyper-conservative cult-Christians dealt with in Part 1 of this series or the ‘super liberal’ Chuck Schumer and his ilk. There is one public forum in this world and likely only one, where you would discover a man whose cult beliefs conflate Jesus’ teachings with Hitler’s behavior and expect that a good thing, that is Mike Pence, rubbing shoulders and sharing a podium with a super liberal Democrat along the lines of Chuck Schumer: that venue is AIPAC.  AIPAC is one of MOSSAD’s favorite playgrounds and it’s not the first time [1] Jewish Zionists have consorted with Nazis (important note: all Jews are not practicing Zionists, not by a long shot, just as a majority of Christians are not political Zionists, despite theological demand in certain sects of both religions that Zionism is paramount.)

Now, let’s look at a thumbnail sketch of past possibilities versus actual outcome and we can reasonably surmise which intelligence agency had come out on top (to now) in the most recent USA election cycle. To begin, we examine Bernie Sander’s role as ‘sheepdog’ [2].

“The sheepdog’s job is to divert the energy and enthusiasm of activists a year, a year and a half out from a November election away from building an alternative to the Democratic party, and into his doomed effort. When the sheepdog inevitably folds in the late spring or early summer before a November election, there’s no time remaining to win ballot access for alternative parties or candidates, no time to raise money or organize any effective challenge to the two capitalist parties.

“At that point, with all the alternatives foreclosed, the narrative shifts to the familiar “lesser of two evils.” Every sheepdog candidate surrenders the shreds of his credibility to the Democratic nominee in time for the November election. This is how the Bernie Sanders show ends, as the left-leaning warm-up act for Hillary Clinton” –Bruce Dixon, May 2015

Why the sheepdog in the larger, geopolitical picture? The only real threat to Israel’s miscreant behaviors lies outside of the normal body politic or, a third party success, with the American voter freed from the constraints of the Democrat-Republican ‘duopoly’ in the USA. The Democrats habit is the ‘sheepdog’, the Republican habit in the 2000s had been computerized vote fraud in the primaries, it is a known fact that’s how Ron Paul had been disposed of in most primaries over more than one election cycle and is how George W Bush was elected in 2000 (with a Supreme Court decision pushing him over the top) and reelected in 2004; but this would have been too obviously dangerous to attempt in 2008, 2012 & 2016 general elections and wasn’t applied in the 2016 primaries likely for the reason is this phenomena had become closely monitored by two many parties since the documentary Hacking Democracy [3]. Both of these methods, when putting evangelical Zionists into office as means to the stated end, that  is working towards implementing the Yinon Plan, would be supported by MOSSAD. It must have been a great temptation for a Pentagon that could not stomach Hillary in the 2016 cycle in a system where it is allies of the Department of Defense counts your vote [4].

“E-voting has obvious downsides—no ability to check recorded votes, no ability to perform meaningful recounts and susceptibility to electronic voting fraud. Nonetheless, the 2002 Help America Vote Act (HAVA) mandates that by January 1 states submit plans to make the switch in time for the 2006 elections.

“More troubling, the backers of the act and the manufactures of e-voting machines are a rat’s nest of conflicts that includes Northrop-Grumman, Lockheed-Martin, Electronic Data Systems (EDS) and Accenture. Why are major defense contractors like Northrop-Grumman and Lockheed-Martin mucking about in the American electoral system? And who are Accenture and EDS?”

More likely than not, when computerized voter fraud is too dangerous to employ at the national (general) election level, it is nevertheless frequently employed at the state level with an eye to pushing the national agenda in certain direction [5].

Back to the ‘sheepdogging’ model: Sanders sandbagging the progressive electorate for the Democrats in 2016 is a particularly interesting case, relevant to today’s subject. There was a tremendous drive that was anti-Clinton in the liberal progressive movement organized behind Sanders. This unnerved the Clinton people within the DNC who began working to sabotage Sanders lest he morph from sheepdog to unintended nominee. This is when things get interesting with the DNC mails leak promoted in Western corporate media as a so-called ‘hack.’

No one has argued the released mails detailing the DNC plot to sabotage Sanders were not authentic. But rather than employ effort to call out and to disqualify Clinton, Sanders kept his head down, endorsed Hillary and effectively sent enough of his base off to elect Trump [6].

Sanders_vote - 1

Did Sander’s people challenge ‘the Russians did it’ propaganda line, demand the DNC servers be examined by forensic specialists and investigate Crowdstrike? No. They sat back and said nothing as the FBI folded the tent concerning the entire business of investigating the DNC (didn’t seize the server that was supposedly hacked) and what’s more is, Sanders has joined the chorus of ‘Putin is the 21st Century’s geopolitical Vlad the Impaler’ [7]. As well we have:

“The DNC had several meetings with representatives of the FBI’s Cyber Division and its Washington (D.C.) Field Office, the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, and U.S. Attorney’s Offices, and it responded to a variety of requests for cooperation, but the FBI never requested access to the DNC’s computer servers,” DNC deputy communications director Eric Walker told BuzzFeed in an email.

“According to one intelligence official who spoke to the publication, no U.S. intelligence agency has performed its own forensics analysis on the hacked servers.

“Instead, the official said, the bureau and other agencies have relied on analysis done by the third-party security firm CrowdStrike, which investigated the breach for the DNC. [8]

Looking a bit deeper, a very relevant question is posed:

“Is giving misleading or false information to 17 US Intelligence Agencies a crime? If it’s done by a cyber security industry leader like Crowdstrike should that be investigated?” [9]

In actuality we know it was the assassinated Seth Rich took the DNC mails with a thumbdrive [10]. More than that, we know the DNC mails that had damaged Clinton together with Sanders sheepdog act were released by Wikileaks whose fingerprints are found all over [11] the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ that has thrown the Middle-east into turmoil, breaking up nations and generally following geopolitical footprints that point to a gradual implementation of the Yinon Plan for a ‘Greater Israel.’ In this midst of this, Bernie Sanders doesn’t want you to know that he was a big piece of the electoral puzzle that fell together in favor of Trump. Why? Why is ‘anti-war’ Sanders on ‘the Russians did it’ path (pointed towards war) when in fact there is entirely too much evidence to the contrary available to his people to credibly make that case, particularly in regards to the DNC mails? Why did Sanders deliberately fold his hand in favor of Trump? Meanwhile Sanders supports the absolutely corrupt script detailed in Part 2 of this series…

“Democrats should wait for special counsel Robert Mueller to complete his investigation against the president before seeking impeachment, Sanders said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” He was referring to a Democrat-led resolution to impeach Trump that died on the House floor Friday.

“I think Mr. Mueller is doing a very good job on his investigation,” Sanders said. “If Mueller brings forth the clear evidence that there was collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, I think you have grounds for impeachment” [12]

…even as Trump implores his treasonous Attorney General Jeff Sessions to do something…

““Department of Justice will not be improperly influenced by political considerations.” Jeff, this is GREAT, what everyone wants, so look into all of the corruption on the “other side” including deleted Emails, Comey lies & leaks, Mueller conflicts, McCabe, Strzok, Page, Ohr……” [13]

&

“Ex-NSA contractor to spend 63 months in jail over “classified” information. Gee, this is “small potatoes” compared to what Hillary Clinton did! So unfair Jeff, Double Standard” [14]

…that will not be done. Trump doesn’t get that Jeff Sessions is a Mike Pence fraternal brother (Coe cult radical Christian Zionist) ‘Never Trump’ personality who purposely allows this charade to go forward in a process supported by Sanders. At this point Trump is expendable to the Israelis, having moved the American embassy to Jerusalem and torn up the Iran agreement, all that is left to do is get an American war with Iran going, to push Netanyahu’s support for Yinon forward, and the chances of that go up with an American President in deep trouble. How odd it would seem to the uninitiated but clear eyed observer, were one to perceive Bernie Sanders ultimately responsible for a President in hard hitting war with Iran and ayatollahs showing no inclination whatsoever to ‘make a deal.’

“Oded Yinon … 1982 paper for Kivunim (Directions) entitled “A Strategy for Israel in the 1980s”, is often used as a reference point for evidence of an Israeli aim to balkanise the surrounding Arab and Muslim world into ethnic and sectarian mini-states” [15]

It follows, Vladimir Putin, the man standing in the way of Syria’s breakup and working to keep the Iran agreement intact and avert a war, must be demonized to realize Bibi Netanyahu’s goals. In fact, Israel’s intelligence services focus has historically prioritized Russia, first, and the USA second [16]. Relevant to this, I had begun this series with an Alastair Crooke quote from his excellent essay ‘The Metaphysics of our Present Global Anguish’ where he details the failures of secularism resulting in pushing people away from enlightenment inspired thinking and towards renewed focus on national religion, national patriotism and national ethnic identity rooted in diverse ancient memories of origin, all things despised by neoliberal globalists. Here is a bit more complete quote:

“500 years ago, the Enlightenment crushed the brief impulse from the Ancient world in Europe, known as the Renaissance. Now the shoe is on the other foot, and it is the world of today’s élites which is imploding. What had been imagined as defeated, beyond recovery, is cautiously arising out from our crumbled ruins. The wheel of time turns, and comes around, again. It may all fare badly – the mode of linear one-track thinking implanted in the West does have an inbuilt propensity towards totalitarianism. We shall see” –Alastair Crooke [17]

The paradox of Crooke’s essay in relation to this series is, at the heart of this circumstance, at this stage of the game it is difficult to distinguish between the neoliberal Zionist and the authentic Nazi; where on either party’s part the actual ‘identity’ is behind a mask. But if you were the MOSSAD people manipulating or instructing Bernie Sanders (not to speak of Jared Kushner!), the reader never guessing Sanders’ present program perfectly merges with the treason of faux followers of Jesus at the Pentagon, would be part and parcel of the intelligence agency plan.

Syria was always about the multi-national corporate rich getting richer. It was RFK Jr, as a larger personality, stepped out of the establishment line and drew attention (however briefly) in mainstream, to the USA’s underlying motive for arming and otherwise supporting the intelligence agency fronted corporate mercenaries euphemistically labeled ‘moderate’© ‘rebels’™

“While the compliant American press parrots the narrative that our military support for the Syrian insurgency is purely humanitarian, many Arabs [correctly] see the present crisis as just another proxy war over pipelines and geopolitics”Robert F Kennedy Jr

Meanwhile, as Plan A or breaking Syria into several warring mini-regions that would preoccupy Assad’s presumed (compliant) replacement, has failed, the reliable multinational’s false-flag journalist, Robert Fisk, has declared ‘move along folks, nothing further to see here’

“The West might hardly believe it, but it now seems the Syrian war is ending – and Assad is the victor” –Robert Fisk

Not. In fact, not even close. The Plan B? An independent Kurdistan encompassing the de facto independent northeast of Iraq, the east of Syria, particularly the oil rich region of Deir ez-Zor, where the USA backed Kurds and Assad’s Syrian Arab Army are in a race for control as the Islamic State ‘caliphate’ is process of military collapse, and eventually the east of the eventually to be ‘non-NATO’ Turkey and the northwest of Iran. The roots of this scenario has been underway for quite some time, as noted at oilprice.com back in 2012 in an article titled The Making of Kurdistan: Oil, Investment and a Turkish Gamble [they lost]

What we see in the lead-up to today is, ExxonMobil making independent (of Baghdad) deals with Iraq’s Kurdish province and meanwhile paying al Qaida ‘protection’ money in the high style of geopolitical organized crime, all of which had been concerning resources dependent on a corrupt Erdogan for export via Turkey. Fast-forward to this morning and we see ExxonMobil front-man Netanyahu endorsing independence for the Kurds with the Iraqi Kurds upcoming independence referendum:

“Iraq’s Kurds plan to hold the referendum on September 25 in three governorates that make up their self-ruled region as well as disputed areas that are controlled by Kurdish forces but claimed by Baghdad, including the oil-rich province of Kirkuk

“Israel “supports the legitimate efforts of the Kurdish people to attain a state of its own””

Of course, this announcement is a trial balloon put out by Rex Tillerson’s (read ExxonMobil’s) front-man in Tel Aviv; against the updated backdrop of NATO ‘member’ Turkey actually now Russia aligned in every sense but formal alliance. Western intelligence is aware by now Turkey has been lost to Russia in everything but name, and Plan B is an independent Greater Kurdistan; initially comprised of portions of Iraq and Syria, with Turkey eventually to be splintered and instability fostered within Iran’s Kurd population. This will weaken Russia’s de facto ally Turkey with looming civil war, and keep Iran preoccupied with a second front in the USA-Israeli-Arab states geopolitical maneuvers against that nation; as well splinter Shia dominated (Iran accommodating) Iraq. Will Russia, Turkey, Iraq, Iran and Syria roll over and allow Kurdistan to come into existence? Don’t count on it.

With the demise of the Islamic State ‘caliphate’ across Syria & Iraq, Iraq will politely ask the USA military to leave and the Americans will have little choice. However the Americans will not abandon Syria and their Kurdish allies there, as well expect a robust CIA paramilitary support for the Kurds to remain in Iraq’s portion of the budding ‘Kurdistan.’

It is Syria where things are most tricky at this moment, with the race to control Deir ez-Zor province between the USA and Russia’s proxy armies. Meanwhile Turkey’s corrupt and criminal Erdogan has not only aligned with Russia but has increasingly alienated his larger Kurdish population, with a consequential reactive and growing indigenous support for Turkey’s Kurdish insurgency, while Iraq, with Iran’s support, is unlikely to sit idly on its hands and allow Iraq’s oil rich Kurd province to pursue independence unchallenged.

Thus, the stage is set for a wider regional, war with Syria at the center.

Probably the greatest (forthcoming) casualty in all of this, is the greater Kurdish peoples’ aspiration for self-determination; with enemies created on all sides and their guarantor a USA empire on precipice of collapse.

Of course, with a Pentagon not only unleashed to make its own policies independent of Trump, but also firmly in the hands of apocalyptic religious extremists with an aversion to Muslims…

“You’re telling me 28 to 34 percent of our military want 7 billion people to die” [believe in literal Armageddon] … “The simple answer is affirmative”

…and with a religiously stupid CIA in the mix throughout, any expectation of rational solutions should be pronounced ‘dead on arrival.’

And the CIA having its Syria paramilitary operations shut down by Trump? Canned laugh here. Not to worry over this cover story attending a shift in strategy, the Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations Command’s paramilitary operations are welded to CIA

JSOC - 1

^ “…the CIA works intimately with JSOC…”

…and has billions budgeted for the Syria arms pipeline through 2022:

The munitions were airdropped to Arab units within the then recently formed Syrian Democratic Forces, SDF, a Kurdish-led coalition currently spearheading the fight to reclaim Raqqa, and the Pentagon’s main ally in Syria

Speaking of a real ‘ho’, NBC’s (nee CIA) Megyn Kelly tells the Austrian Chancellor, Christian Kern, “Flattery will get you everything” not once but twice, the second time with extra emphasis; in front of a world audience; one cannot help but understand this had been an invitation to crawl between her legs, here’s her expression as she pops the proposal:

Screen Shot 2017-06-06 at 6.50.53 PM

I’m certain this was a NBC slap at Putin’s ‘man-spread’ as only the politically correct falling into lockstep (goose-step?) with the western propaganda line get into the American media whore’s pants (I’m certain president Putin has better available to him.) The entire event is worth a watch for those with a couple hours time to catch up on what’s happening as put forward at the Economic Forum at Saint Petersberg:

Meanwhile, over at a Russian ‘fake news’ site the USA doesn’t want you to read at, we discover this footnote to the 350 billion USA arms sale to the Saudis:

The other beneficiaries are believed to be Raytheon, which seeks to sell $1 billion worth of Penetrator Warheads and Paveway laser-guided bombs…”

Ok, so that measly $1 billion is less than one percent of the 110 billion planned initial release of weapons to the criminal Saudi regime. Other than it is the United Kingdom’s Raytheon unit requires USA permission for export (because of some USA made components) it is possibly the most interesting 0.9% of the initial 110 billion (for A.S.A.P. or, as soon as possible delivery) request:

Raytheon UK is conducting preparatory work to equip the Paveway IV with a bunker-busting warhead as part of the Selective Precision Effects At Range (Spear) Capability 1 program. The compact penetrator has the same outer mold line and mass of the regular Paveway IV and uses a discarding shroud design. A penetrating 500 lb Paveway IV would replace the RAF’s previous 2,000 lb Paveway III bunker buster. The penetrating version of the Paveway IV will enter service on the Typhoon in early 2019. Raytheon claims the new warhead has the performance of the BLU-109 penetrating bomb, despite being one-quarter of its weight”

In other words, Raytheon UK’s mad scientist Dexter has found a means of making a 500 pound ‘bunker-busting’ bomb as effective as the 2,000 pound bunker-busting bomb of a decade ago. What do the Saudis need such a weapon for? Iran’s underground weapons production facilities? That’d be a good bet, Iran was the major focus of hostile rhetoric on all parties part when the ‘greatest weapons sale on earth’ show saw Trump dancing  with swords in Riyadh:

So, the recently adopted royal that is the USA’s Emir, er, President Trump al Saud has come down on the side of the Saudis in a world class hypocrisy in the Saudi spat with Qatar, when the Saudis accuse the Qataris of support for Islamic State and al Qaida, never mind it was Saudis provided the manpower, leadership and wealth used to create al Qaida (from which Islamic State was born as a splinter group.)

Oh, and those classified ’28 pages’ related to 9/11… isn’t that something to do with the House of Saud funding certain al Qaida associated personalities in the USA? Ouch, Donald (or ‘dumb-shit-donald’, readers choice.) And let’s not forget Jared Kushner’s fingers are all over this weapons purchase pie (speaking of dancing Israelis.) A MOSSAD-al-Saud joint venture? It seems this wouldn’t be the first time…

Finally, 50 years on, remembering the USS Liberty, 8 June, 1967:

The Lynching

The current political lynching in DC reminds one of Tom Horn‘s hanging more than a betrayed alt right’s ‘Nathan Hale’ fantastically dressed in patriotic spin. The congressional mob lynching Donald Trump is absolutely complicit in Trump’s crime of a $350 billion arms sale to the Saudis even as Trump is being lynched for daring suggest talking to the Russians concerning geopolitical cooperation. The actual rationale behind the mob hysteria can only be Trump talking to the Russians poses a problem for the Saudis daring to use those weapons in the White House generals’ upcoming war with Iran. Meanwhile, never-mind the present and ongoing Pentagon-Saudi proxy war on Iran (Yemen) violating every human rights standard up to and including using banned cluster munitions. Not only Mike Pence and the generals but likely Bibi has his fingers in this military-industrial pie/racket. Netanyahu nearly has what he wants, an apocalyptic Pentagon owned President Pence en route to a proper war with Iran and cheapening of the male prostitute Uncle Sam:

pence |pens|
plural form of penny.
penny |ˈpenē|
noun
1 N. Amer. informal a one-cent coin equal to one hundredth of a dollar.
• (pl. for separate coins pennies, for a sum of money pence |pens| ) With inflation, prostitute-President Pence wasn’t worth a penny.
ORIGIN Old English penig, penning, of Germanic origin; related to Dutch penning, German Pfennig, also to pawn.

The simple math: following on the CIA overthrowing a democratically elected government in Iran (for the oil), Uncle Sam propped up the Shah of Iran for decades, an absolute asshole who spent lavishly on both; buying American arms and (with competent MOSSAD help) brutalizing his own people. The radicalized ayatollahs coming to power had been a direct result of that chain of events, a case of what Malcolm X would likely have very accurately called another ‘case of the chickens coming home to roost’ for the USA.

Meanwhile, the stupid fuckers at the apocalyptic bible prophecy worshiping Pentagon, rather than apologize to Iran for the undeniable history and thank the ayatollahs for the nuclear non-proliferation arrangement, make moves that can only serve to convince every nation refusing to bend over for a USA butt-fucking they should acquire nukes.

The preceding is why this blog has a category specific to “Morons”
