If China Can Fund infrastructure with Its Own Credit, So Can We

Image result for china credit infrastructure funding

May 15th-19th has been designated “National Infrastructure Week” by the US Chambers of Commerce, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and over 150 affiliates. Their message: “It’s time to rebuild.” Ever since ASCE began issuing its “National Infrastructure Report Card” in 1998, the nation has gotten a dismal grade of D or D+. In the meantime, the estimated cost of fixing its infrastructure has gone up from $1.3 trillion to $4.6 trillion.

While American politicians debate endlessly over how to finance the needed fixes and which ones to implement, the Chinese have managed to fund massive infrastructure projects all across their country, including 12,000 miles of high-speed rail built just in the last decade. How have they done it, and why can’t we?

A key difference between China and the US is that the Chinese government owns the majority of its banks. About 40% of the funding for its giant railway project comes from bonds issued by the Ministry of Railway, 10-20% comes from provincial and local governments, and the remaining 40-50% is provided by loans from federally-owned banks and financial institutions. Like private banks, state-owned banks simply create money as credit on their books. (More on this below.) The difference is that they return their profits to the government, making the loans interest-free; and the loans can be rolled over indefinitely. In effect, the Chinese government decides what work it wants done, draws on its own national credit card, pays Chinese workers to do it, and repays the loans with the proceeds.

The US government could do that too, without raising taxes, slashing services, cutting pensions, or privatizing industries. How this could be done quickly and cheaply will be considered here, after a look at the funding proposals currently on the table and at why they are not satisfactory solutions to the nation’s growing infrastructure deficit.

The Endless Debate over Funding and the Relentless Push to Privatize

 In a May 15, 2017, report on In the Public Interest, the debate taking shape heading into National Infrastructure Week was summarized like this:

The Trump administration, road privatization industry, and a broad mix of congressional leaders are keen on ramping up a large private financing component (under the marketing rubric of ‘public-private partnerships’), but have not yet reached full agreement on what the proportion should be between tax breaks and new public money—and where that money would come from. Over 500 projects are being pitched to the White House. . . .

Democrats have had a full plan on the table since January, advocating for new federal funding and a program of infrastructure renewal spread through a broad range of sectors and regions. And last week, a coalition of right wing, Koch-backed groups led by Freedom Partners . . .  released a letter encouraging Congress “to prioritize fiscal responsibility” and focus instead on slashing public transportation, splitting up transportation policy into the individual states, and eliminating labor and environmental protections (i.e., gutting the permitting process). They attacked the idea of a national infrastructure bank and . . . targeted the most important proposal of the Trump administration . . . —to finance new infrastructure by tax reform to enable repatriation of overseas corporate revenues . . . .

In a November 2014 editorial titled “How Two Billionaires Are Destroying High Speed Rail in America,” author Julie Doubleday observed that the US push against public mass transit has been led by a think tank called the Reason Foundation, which is funded by the Koch brothers. Their $44 billion fortune comes largely from Koch Industries, an oil and gas conglomerate with a vested interest in mass transit’s competitors, those single-rider vehicles using the roads that are heavily subsidized by the federal government.

Clearly, not all Republicans are opposed to funding infrastructure, since Donald Trump’s $1 trillion infrastructure plan was a centerpiece of his presidential campaign, and his Republican base voted him into office. But “establishment Republicans” have traditionally opposed infrastructure spending. Why? According to a May 15, 2015 article in Daily Kos titled “Why Do Republicans Really Oppose Infrastructure Spending?”:

Republicans – at the behest of their mega-bank/private equity patrons – really, deeply want to privatize the nation’s infrastructure and turn such public resources into privately owned, profit centers.  More than anything else, this privatization fetish explains Republicans’ efforts to gut and discredit public infrastructure  . . . .

If the goal is to privatize and monetize public assets, the last thing Republicans are going to do is fund and maintain public confidence in such assets.  Rather, when private equity wants to acquire something, the typical playbook is to first make sure that such assets are what is known as “distressed assets” (i.e., cheaper to buy).

A similar argument was advanced by Noam Chomsky in a 2011 lecture titled “The State-Corporate Complex: A Threat to Freedom and Survival”. He said:

[T]here is a standard technique of privatization, namely defund what you want to privatize. Like when Thatcher wanted to [privatize] the railroads, first thing to do is defund them, then they don’t work and people get angry and they want a change. You say okay, privatize them . . . .

What’s Wrong with Public-Private Partnerships?

Privatization (or “asset relocation” as it is sometimes euphemistically called) means selling public utilities to private equity investors, who them rent them back to the public, squeezing their profits from high user fees and tolls. Private equity investment now generates an average return of about 11.8 percent annually on a ten-year basis. That puts the cost to the public of financing $1 trillion in infrastructure projects over 10 years at around $1.18 trillion, more than doubling the cost. Moving assets off the government’s balance sheet by privatizing them looks attractive to politicians concerned with this year’s bottom line, but it’s a bad deal for the public. Decades from now, people will still be paying higher tolls for the sake of Wall Street profits on an asset that could have belonged to them all along.

One example is the Dulles Greenway, a toll road outside Washington, D.C., nicknamed the “Champagne Highway” due to its extraordinarily high rates and severe underutilization in a region crippled by chronic traffic problems. Local (mostly Republican) officials have tried in vain for years to either force the private owners to lower the toll rates or have the state take the road into public ownership. In 2014, the private operators of the Indiana Toll Road, one of the best-known public-private partnerships (PPPs), filed for bankruptcy after demand dropped, due at least in part to rising toll rates. Other high-profile PPP bankruptcies have occurred in San Diego, CA; Richmond, VA; and Texas.

Countering the dogma that “private companies can always do it better and cheaper,” studies have found that on average, private contractors charge more than twice as much as the government would have paid federal workers for the same job. A 2011 report by the Brookings Institution found that “in practice [PPPs] have been dogged by contract design problems, waste, and unrealistic expectations.” In their 2015 report “Why Public-Private Partnerships Don’t Work,” Public Services International stated that “[E]xperience over the last 15 years shows that PPPs are an expensive and inefficient way of financing infrastructure and divert government spending away from other public services. They conceal public borrowing, while providing long-term state guarantees for profits to private companies.” They also divert public money away from the neediest infrastructure projects, which may not deliver sizable returns, in favor of those big-ticket items that will deliver hefty profits to investors.

A Better Way to Design an Infrastructure Bank

The Trump team has also reportedly discussed the possibility of an infrastructure bank, but that proposal faces similar hurdles. The details of the proposal are as yet unknown, but past conceptions of an infrastructure bank envision a quasi-bank (not a physical, deposit-taking institution) seeded by the federal government, possibly from taxes on the repatriation of offshore corporate profits. The bank would issue bonds, tax credits, and loan guarantees to state and local governments to leverage private sector investment. As with the private equity proposal, an infrastructure bank would rely on public-private partnerships and investors who would be disinclined to invest in projects that did not generate hefty returns. And those returns would again be paid by the public in the form of tolls, fees, higher rates, and payments from state and local governments.

There is another way to set up a publicly-owned bank. Today’s infrastructure banks are basically revolving funds. A dollar invested is a dollar lent, which must return to the bank (with interest) before it can be lent again. A chartered depository bank, on the other hand, can turn a one-dollar investment into ten dollars in loans. It can do this because depository banks actually create deposits when they make loans. This was acknowledged by economists both at the Bank of England (in a March 2014 paper entitled “Money Creation in the Modern Economy”) and at the Bundesbank (the German central bank) in an April 2017 report.

Contrary to conventional wisdom, money is not fixed and scarce. It is “elastic”: it is created when loans are made and extinguished when they are paid off. The Bank of England report said that private banks create nearly 97 percent of the money supply today. Borrowing from banks (rather than the bond market) expands the circulating money supply. This is something the Federal Reserve tried but failed to do with its quantitative easing (QE) policies: stimulate the economy by expanding the bank lending that expands the money supply.

The stellar (and only) model of a publicly-owned depository bank in the United States is the Bank of North Dakota (BND). It holds all of its home state’s revenues as deposits by law, acting as a sort of “mini-Fed” for North Dakota. According to reports, the BND is more profitable even than Goldman Sachs, has a better credit rating than J.P. Morgan Chase, and has seen solid profit growth for almost 15 years. The BND continued to report record profits after two years of oil bust in the state, suggesting that it is highly profitable on its own merits because of its business model. The BND does not pay bonuses, fees, or commissions; has no high paid executives; does not speculate on risky derivatives; does not have multiple branches; does not need to advertise; and does not have private shareholders seeking short-term profits. The profits return to the bank, which distributes them as dividends to the state.

The federal government could set up a bank on a similar model. It has massive revenues, which it could leverage into credit for its own purposes. Since financing is typically about 50 percent of the cost of infrastructure, the government could cut infrastructure costs in half by borrowing from its own bank. Public-private partnerships are a good deal for investors but a bad deal for the public. The federal government can generate its own credit without private financial middlemen. That is how China does it, and we can too.

For more detail on this and other ways to solve the infrastructure problem without raising taxes,  slashing services, or privatizing public assets, see Ellen Brown, “Rebuilding America’s Infrastructure,”a policy brief for the Next System Project, March 2017.

The Comey affair; lies and reality pass like trains in the night by Jon Rappoport

Comey Affair

The Comey affair; lies and reality pass like trains in the night

by Jon Rappoport

May 14, 2017

NEWSMAN #1: Trump fired Comey.

NEWSMAN #2: Biggest thing since the great Chicago fire of 1871.

NEWSMAN #1: Bigger. How do we play this? The Democrats wanted Comey’s head for what he did to Hillary. Trump just fired Comey. I’m confused.

NEWSMAN #2: Doesn’t matter. Say Trump just burned up the Constitution. Say he hates dogs and little children. Say his hair is actually a wig made of Russian sable.

NEWSMAN #1: What about the truth?

NEWSMAN #2: The what? You poor sap. Truth is relative to agenda. Did you miss that lesson in journalism school?

NEWSMAN #1: I didn’t go to journalism school. I got my PhD in philosophy at Yale. I wrote my thesis on a comparison of “an” and “the” in ancient Babylonia.

Fired FBI Director Comey is obviously in trouble. Cry for him. He’ll have to go on food stamps and welfare now, won’t he? Will he be able to collect Social Security? He’s too young! He needs crowdfunding. Send canned food.

The media are portraying Trump firing Comey as “breathtaking,” “stunning,” “shocking.” They’re saying this is how Washington is reacting.

If you live in Washington, try to find somebody who is really sucking air and trying to breathe. Find somebody who is leaning against a wall because he’s stunned. Find somebody whose eyes are rolling up inside his head from the shock.

It’s all made up. It’s all hyped.

Washington politicians may be pretending shock and amazement for the cameras, but that’s about it.

And if you travel outside Washington, most people don’t care about Comey. People are fired from their jobs all the time. People are let go for many reasons. People who can’t afford to be unemployed. Comey, on the other hand, is thinking about a book deal. He might be planning a vacation. He might be talking to Obama about doing some elite “community organizing.” He’ll be fielding offers to sit on corporate boards. His biggest worry: “Do I go on the talk shows right away or do I wait?”

Washington insiders aren’t shocked by anything. They just play that role on television.

When an interesting event occurs, like Trump firing Comey, Washington pols meet with their staffs and plan their public response. They look for a personal advantage. “How can I play this?” “Can I use this to get ahead?” “Let’s go for the Trump impeachment angle.”

Comey himself knew he was on the verge of getting fired. There wasn’t any mystery about it. He kept pushing the fantastical Trump-Russia investigation. He didn’t bother looking into Trump-team leaks that were the result of domestic hacking. His initial reaction to getting fired—he thought it was a joke, a prank—was nonsensical. He knew. He knew he was on the edge.

Right now, Comey is wondering how far he can move from his former job and maintain credibility as a non-partisan figure. Or: can he go the other way and sign on with Obama? Can he approach Hillary and mend fences? Can he lobby? How can he successfully position himself for the “next chapter of his life?”

I once interviewed a troubled Washington politician who had jumped the wrong way on an important decision involving his Party. He was toast. With me, he mouthed all sorts of gumble-jumble about “sticking to his guns,” but I could see his wheels were turning. He was contemplating his future. Where could he go? What could he do to make hay after public office? These people don’t waste time. They move on. Nobody cares. It’s politics.

Comey rolled the dice and lost. He knew he could lose. As he was rolling those dice, he was already thinking about his image and whether he could emerge as a hero or a martyr. Or whether he had already played out all his political capital. If so, his next gig would land him in the private sector, or with a prestigious foundation.

Washington is a mix of musical chairs and checkers. Doors open, doors close, the players scramble for a spot.

Nobody is shocked.

In the swamp, nobody is amazed.

The media pretend shock, awe, and amazement, because when they do, their ratings go up.

Right now, in that vein, they’re all jockeying for a chance to interview Comey. He’s the next big “get.”

“Tell Mr. Comey we can do this anywhere he wants to. In his living room, his study, or we’ll put him in a quiet studio. And we’ll walk along a riverbank, stroll through a forest. It’ll be dignified. Absolutely no gossip. He’s a major figure. We’ll accord him all the respect he deserves. We’ll track his career from the early days. He’s a…statesman. We hold him in the highest regard. We’d like to do this long-form, as a two-parter, on consecutive nights. An hour each night. Only one commercial per half-hour. We want to give him the widest possible exposure. All of America wants to hear what he has to say at this crucial moment. As a token of our appreciation and an expression of concern, we’re prepared to FedEx him a dozen cans of baked beans and several flank steaks from Safeway, because we know he’s currently unemployed…”

And then there was the Comey farewell letter to his FBI people.

As you read it, try to hold back the tears.

“I have said to you before that, in times of turbulence, the American people should see the FBI as a rock of competence, honesty, and independence. What makes leaving the FBI hard is the nature and quality of its people, who together make it that rock for America.”

“It is very hard to leave a group of people who are committed only to doing the right thing. My hope is that you will continue to live our values and the mission of protecting the American people and upholding the Constitution. If you do that, you too will be sad when you leave, and the American people will be safer.”

Competence? Committed to doing the right thing? Upholding the Constitution and the law?

Comey was obviously excluding himself from that reference.

Recall his surreal press conference during the presidential campaign, during which he acted as FBI director, Attorney General, and grand jury, when he recited a list of felonies Hillary Clinton had committed in the handling of her private email server…and then said he was not recommending prosecution, because Hillary showed no intent to deceive or do harm. Comey obviously knew intent was no part of the law, which was written to make sure negligence alone, in the handling of classified materials, was sufficient to prosecute and convict a perpetrator.

A number of FBI agents weren’t happy with Comey then. Not at all. The new Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe belatedly confirmed it in testimony before Congress on Thursday: “…there were folks within our agency that were frustrated with the outcome of the Hillary Clinton case and some of those folks were very vocal about those concerns.”

You bet.

As for the unparalleled honesty of the FBI Comey referred to in his farewell letter, where does one begin?

Let’s take a peek at just one area: the vaunted FBI lab, where evidence in crime investigations is analyzed.

April 20, 2015, The Atlantic: “…the Washington Post made clear Saturday in an article that begins with a punch to the gut… ‘Nearly every examiner in an elite FBI forensic unit gave flawed testimony in almost all trials in which they offered evidence against criminal defendants over more than a two-decade period before 2000,’ the newspaper reported, adding that ‘the cases include those of 32 defendants sentenced to death’.”

August 12, 2014, New Scientist: “…the initial results were released of an ongoing review of thousands of criminal cases in which FBI scientists’ testimony may have led to wrongful convictions – including for some people now on death row…’we teach these people [lab techs in training] for two weeks, and they would go back to their laboratories with a certificate of completion and be told: “Great you’re qualified to do this [analysis of evidence] – here’s your caseload”’.”

Buckle up for this one. March 22, 1997, CNN: “The Justice Department inspector general’s office has determined that the FBI crime laboratory working on the Oklahoma City bombing case made ‘scientifically unsound’ conclusions that were ‘biased in favor of the prosecution,’ The Los Angeles Times reported Saturday.”

“…[FBI] supervisors approved lab reports that they ‘cannot support’ and…FBI lab officials may have erred about the size of the blast, the amount of explosives involved and the type of explosives used in the bombing[!].”

“…harshest criticism was of David Williams, a supervisory agent in the explosives unit, the paper [LA Times] said. Those flaws reportedly include the basis of his determination that the main charge of the explosion was ammonium nitrate. The inspector general called such a determination ‘inappropriate,’ the Times said.”

“…FBI officials found a receipt for ammonium nitrate at defendant [Terry] Nichols’ home and, because of that discovery, Williams slanted his conclusion to match the evidence.”

If you’re thinking the FBI’s fake investigation of the Oklahoma bombing evidence opens the door to a whole new direction in the case, you’re right. (I wrote a book about false evidence in the OKC bombing in 1995.)

Yes, there are honest and honorable agents at the FBI, but let’s not go overboard with Comey and his sop of a farewell letter.

Comey postures. He works the “honor” angle. He tap dances. He puts out pure jive.

In 2013, before his appointment as FBI director, Comey was brought in by the scandal-ridden HSBC Bank, to oversee efforts to clean up its act—in particular, money laundering for drug cartels.

Comey was positioned as the face of honesty and competence for HSBC.

How well did he do, before he exited his position? How much crime and how many criminals did he leave behind?

Three years later, after Comey had departed, The NY Times wrote: “HSBC Bank Executives Face Charges in $3.5 Billion Currency [Fraud] Case … Traders Use Front-Running to Profit From Client Orders…”

I guess Comey didn’t clean up the HSBC mess. There were a few things he didn’t notice while he was there. A few thing he left behind. A few billion things.

And now, far more interesting than “why was Comey really fired from the FBI”: what corruption he did he leave behind at the FBI that we don’t know about?

The old saying, fake it ‘til you make it, applies. Comey faked it until he made it. And then he faked it again.

Now he’ll move into a new role. Who knows, some day, as history is rewritten, people may be saying he was the only honest man in Washington.

FUTURE NEWSMAN #1: I’m writing a book about Comey, comparing him to Gandhi.

FUTURE NEWSMAN #2: Who wins?

FUTURE NEWSMAN #1: Comey, in a landslide. He stood up against the titanic forces of evil in Washington.

FUTURE NEWSMAN #2: You have a publisher?

FUTURE NEWSMAN #1: The US Printing Office. My uncle owns it.

FUTURE NEWSMAN #2: I thought that was a government department.

FUTURE NEWSMAN #1: The New York Times bought it.

FUTURE NEWSMAN #2: Your uncle owns the New York Times?

FUTURE NEWSMAN #1: He owns the company that owns Facebook and Google. They own the New York Times.

FUTURE NEWSMAN #2: Wow. What’s the name of the company your uncle owns?

FUTURE NEWSMAN #1: Clinton and Comey. It’s a law firm and a foundation. Their headquarters are in Jerusalem, Riyadh, and the Vatican.

The Comey affair; lies and reality pass like trains in the night


Short Term Memories, By G Squared

Image result for peanut galleryThe Peanut Galleries refuse to learn that 10 minutes of nonsense waffled by The Institution of TV News, does not make them fully informed about anything. The absurdity is, they want to argue their inculcated ignorance as a valid perspective, in contradiction to reality.

The Liberals and Progressives rely on the short term memory of their followers, and those swept by transient deceptions.

The reality of hypocritical and duplicitous narratives are hardly obvious to them. The Comey Affair is one recent example.

Yates, Lynch, Flynn, Clapper, and Brennan were last Month’s fashion statements.

Comey was great when running the fictional Trump Russian Collusion and Electoral Hack Affair. Bad news when investigating Hillary. A great fellow when he couldn’t find evidence on Hillary. Evil when he reopened The Hillary Affair. Great when he dumped it again. And when he gets shafted, the last narrative was “Hillary is great and Trump is no good”. Therefore Comey is great and Trump is wrong again.

Hoover was Diector of The BOI from 1924 to 1935, then Director of its rebadging to The FBI from 1935 to 1972 (48 years of relentless blackmailing of 8 presidents, and anyone he felt was a suitable target).

He began falling apart with The Valachi Affair of 1963. He had the files on everyone. The Mafia only had one file: Hoover’s. Up to that time Hoover denied the existence of The Mafia. The empowerment of The Mafia by the madness of Prohibition.

LBJ was blackmailed by various murders and his having raped his grandmother at age 14 (Kinsey file). So he naturally appoints Hoover to be FBI Director for life.

After The Hoover Affair, the FBI Director was appointed on a ten year contract at The President’s Pleasure. He could be asked to leave office by The President, at any time, without any requirement to state why.

A little point conveniently forgotten in the Dems MSM rants concerning their on again off again love affair with Comey. Dutifully sucked in by the herds. The hypocrisy of The Dem MSM vacillations running from May 2016 to the present.

Trump leaked that he has Comey on tape from Jan. 2017. To be released if he lies again in the upcoming Senate Intelligence Committee Hearings.

Comey is involved in the admitted fiction of The Russian Collusion and Hack Affair and the real Hillary Affair concerning all the allied; yet to be revealed; matters concerning Hillary pretending to be Secretary of State under Sidney Blumenthal.

Comey, as I have written, was involved in every Clinton Affair from the Iran-Contra activities through Adams Field Airport, when Billy Boy was Arkansas Attorney General, through Whitewater to the present.

Trump didn’t sack Comey to prevent him investigating the fictitious Russian Affair, he kept him on to allow him to go nowhere with the stupidity. As he did.


The very reasons almost all of America voted for The Trump GOP was that they wanted America restored to its Constitution, whether or not that was specifically understood.

Most of real America had suffered under the insane socio-economic engineering agendas from Clinton and Obama. Albeit The GFC Affair came at the end of The GWB Presidency. His administration was preoccupied with war mongering and aloof to the real world and what was being perpetrated on The People of America.

America continued at war with the world, while domestically it destroyed its Health, Education, and Welfare Systems.

Americans were robbed of their homes, their jobs, and their future. While government officials and the bankers who robbed them, sported amounts of money, the damaged will never know.

In November 1999. Bill Clinton announced that The Glass-Steagall Act was “dead”. Citibank merged with Salomon Smith Barney. Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch, AIG, IndyMac, and Lehmans were waiting to happen in 2007-8. The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act was too little too late.

The insanity of Intellectualised Social-Engineering became the dominant narrative of America.

The anti-Trump noise began with media and celebrity mouths advising the world that their instructions were not obeyed. An absurdity that is drowning itself. but not fast enough.

Then we suffered the inanity of sacked public servants refusing to leave office. Then there were objections to Executive Orders on the basis of idiotic junk interpretations of law. Then local authorities were refusing to obey federal laws concerning the harbouring of tens of millions of illegal immigrants, causing hundreds of billions of dollars in socio-economic damage to the nation.

The Judiciary Branch strayed wildly off rational course; as individuals wanted to pin their dysfunctionality in accord to their personal ideological obtuseness.

The incessant ventilations of every aspect of why The Trump GOP was stamped into Executive and Legislative Office. Confirming. over and over, the very reasons and the delusional disengagements from reality that drove the prior America, ad nauseam.

American intel is a world unto itself. Its deeply entreched flaws were displayed by the current Syrian, Afghani, and North Korean Affairs.

I have written how America had no knowledge of the very obvious Russian infrastructure investments and commercial dealings through North Korea. Russia owns North Korea and has built heavy rail freight lines and oil and gas pipelines to The 38th. Parallel North border. In preparation for the unification. And recently confirmed by the new South Korean President.

I have written that America trying to ingratiate itself to a belated invitation to that trading table will fall on deaf ears, unless America is prepared to pay heavily for its prior and recent behaviour in the region.

American MSM has now announced that North Korea wants to enter negotiations with America. Not true. It’s a step back from the insane Amada Affair by America. Not as a consequence of its fiction. All to placate The Peanut Galleries.

North Korea has no business to discuss with America. And America has no business with North Korea. Allegedly protecting South Korea and Japan, America has no business in the region. The American China Policy after WWII, The Korean and Vietnam Wars, its incessant attempts to block sea lanes in the region, and its incessant attempts at surveillance, have excluded America.

America’s interests concerning Australia were clearly demonstrated by The East Timor and West Papua Affairs. The slaughters concerning the latter, are still occurring.

America has 35 bases fixed in Australia, an unknown submarine base below North West Cape (Station Harold E.Holt), and mining and oil self-serving interests. It sells junk war mongering hardware, and uses Australia and New Zealand as cohorts in alleged multinational forces.

Apart from selling Australia by absurd treaties, food it does not need nor want, and ridiculous forced GM technologies, the insanity of America wanting to control the world’s food chains. Apart from the massive environmental destruction yet to be realised by fracking and in situ leaching of uranium. And of course the essential economic slavery.

America does not mesh with SIS. Since the beginning of The Cold War era, American intel has taken its own path. It has notoriously been wrong. In a disservice to its nation, it has too often taken the path of supplying intel to match political and ideological paths.

SIS correctly steered The British Cabinet during WWII. In contradiction to the paths determined by those cabinets. The West needed Russia to defeat Germany. American intel supporting the dysfunctionality of ideology as a foreign enemy, gave the longterm result that it has.

At an unknown budget of over two billion dollars per week (Congessional Appropriations are not the true operational costs), America deserves more than it is receiving. The seventeen main intel branches in America are too many and at least not confined within rational parameters.

Power Maximising and the rationale of allied mutations, deliver the institutionalised cultures that America suffers today.

It is absurd that government functionaries are able to weaponise through mass media; any disruption or absurdity tractioned as valid for herd manipulation.

American mass media has proven itself incapable of delivering truth and rigorous assessment. And certainly American Government ‘Communication’ deliver neither.

Lies built on lies deliver belief systems of mush. The American education system, from pre-school to tertiary, tutors a regurgitative inability to rationalise critical thought. The journey is irreversible.

Policies evolve based on absurd foundations. At least one generation is totally lost. Was this the intent of the foundation of the great American Republic.

America evolved a malignancy that has spread to every nation foolish enough to surrender their ideological sovereignty and independence, to the insane dictates of contemporary America. The socio-economic damage is real, enduring, and obstinant to move.

When America is reformed, reality will lateralise. Being a two generational endurance, if that span is hindered, the reconstruction falters to its beginning.

There are many challenges. The foundations are intellectualised, obtuse ideologies, concocted and enhanced ‘enemies’, and an inculcated self-belief beyond any rational substance.

The UK destroyed itself in Western Europe in 1914, and The US destroyed itself in Eastern Europe in 2014.

The journey for Britain has been long and painful. That for America will be worse.

To rectify wrongs, it’s first necessary to recognise that there are diversions. America is not yet able to function that introspection. America is right, and all else are wrong.

Its Foreign Policy is an obstinant, militarist idiocy driven by absurd institutionalised intel. An addiction that has destroyed its domestic economy either directly, or by lack of focus on infiltrated treachery.

Floating Policy based on directed or diverted populist attention, is absurd. Weaponised mass media is absurd. None of this is the substance of a sound First World nation state, or the respect of the individual’s right to know. The People are fed nonsense and expected to believe it; in accord to their lifelong tutoring and acceptance of what to think, rather than how to think.

America became a nation lost. And those who followed are now floating free in a void, not of their intended making, and with no chartered course of socio-economic survival.

Beyond the constraints of domestic hyperinflation; America floated an international currency that is baseless and valueless. It is invalidly quoted on manipulated markets as having a rational exchange value against legitimate currencies. It’s representative ‘value’ or exchangeability for goods and services, is based on tutored perception. And the belief that someone else will take those dollars from you.

Precious metals are commodities and cannot be a functioning medium of exchange. Irrespective of the perceptions of intrinsic value. They can be a store of value, but never a general medium of exchange.

Government bonds are based on the issuing government honouring its promise to pay. America defaulted on France in 1972. A currency is based on the belief system of the person to whom those tokens or promissory notes are tendered for value. Can the accepting party equally exchange them for value. Apart from the notions of soaking assets and any floating currency, in an economy.

The American Dollar is worthless paper, valued by the belief system of another party prepared to exchange it. In America, those promissory notes are issued by banks in the privately owned Federal Reserve System. In The UK, banks also issue their floating promissory notes. Read what is written on them. The only guarantee is that they are worthless; but a legislated medium of exchange.

The world is driven by trade and economics. Not by wars, threats of wars, concocted enemy focusses, or manipulations of belief systems.

There are no National Security Interests or an essential to police all others. There are no threats beyond those caused or invented.

The People of a nation state expect sound government that protects them, and what they create, by hard effort. Not incessant fabrications and diversions that destroy their lives, present and future.

Governments are regarded as the true enemies of their people. With taxes becoming a forced extortion to feed government. Not some moral obligation by a citizenry. The filing of returns is the full data of the commercial life of an economy. Not merely the audit of what is paid.

How did governments as American and Australian function before the deceptions of federal taxation.

The American Government on 23/11/2008, announced it had lent Citi $25 billion to add to a previous $20 billion and the guarantee of a further $386 billion for its exposures.

Citi promising to pay the first $29 billion of the guarantee, then announced it had repaid the loans. The $386 billion was effectively a government guarantee for Citi, which it used accordingly.

Obama was politically trapped into the bad management of a bad situation. Even though the government was issued shares in Citi in compensation and eventually made a profit on the sales. The issue of shares cost nothing to Citi. And the ‘profit’ was paid by other parties buying the shares in the manipulated market.

In 2009, Obama, on advice from The Treasury, began ordering Citi to divide into a number of smaller entities. Citi ignored the matter and advised that the division was not possible and Obama could not support the authority he was posturing.

In 2008 Citi was under protection and partly nationalised. It moved itself out of that position with a $10 billion ‘profit’ in 2010. Albeit it was technically insolvent, and the government loans and guarantees allowed the different projection.

The history of Citi (owned with Chase by The Rockefellers, who are also stakeholders in The Federal Reserve System); is the parallel of all that has gone wrong.

In 1919, the ‘Citi’ of its day declared a very conservative $1 billion in assets. Subsequently Chester Glass was to advise that, Citi under Mitchell was a major orchestrator of The 1929 Collapse in America. Some number of years ago I wrote the lengthy history of how that massive 1929 fraud had occurred, and who the characters were.

The manipulation had been test run in London on two previous occassions. It was well signalled.

The Rockefellers learnt from The Rothschilds, and financed wars, including The American Civil War of 1861-1865. The American War of Independence was about The British Pound.

During and after WWII in America, Citi controlled the $5.6 billion War and Victory Loan Drives. Very little reached where the people believed it would.

In 1998, Citi was implicated in The Salinas Money Laundering Affair.

In Dec. 2002, Citi was fined $400 million for deceiving investors with biased research.

On 2/8/2004, Citi dumped €11 billion in bonds, collapsing The European Bond Markets. It then bought back all the securities at a fraction of the price.

In June 2006, Richard Bowen, Citi Vice President advised the board that Citi was trading $90 billion a year in mortgages, and 60% were defective. In contradiction of The Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the information was hidden by the board.

In 2007, Citi was implicated in The Terra Securities Affair.

In 2008 Citi was heavily involved in The Sub-Prime Mortgage Fraud.

In Aug. 2008, Citi paid $18 million in refunds and fines for ‘Computer Sweeping’ over 53,000 accounts between 1992 and 2003.

Following The Sub-Prime Collapse, Citi used government bailout funds to pay 1,034 employees bonuses of between $1 million and $10 million each.

In 2009 legislation was enacted to prevent a recurrence.

On 19/10/2011, Citi paid $285 million in a civil fraud settlement; for selling known high risk mortgage packages, then playing the markets against what they had sold the investors.

In 2013, Citi was ‘The Global Bank of The Year’, according to ‘The Banker’. And in 2015, ‘Best Global Bank’ according to ‘Euromoney’.

In Sept. 2015, Citi paid $770 million for illegal and misrepresented transaction fees and costs, concerning some seven million credit card holders.

In Jan. 2017, Citi was fined $25 million for manipulating US Treasury Futures over 2,500 times between July 2011 and Dec. 2012.

On 20/3/2017 looted Russian State Assets (renamed KGB funds) were located in Citi accounts. The funds looted from Ukraine were flown to The New York Federal Reserve in 2014.

Through a long history of developing and floating cards, Citi and its minor playmates own Mastercard. Similarly it owns internet banking.

The International Payments Systems including Chaps and Swift are owned and controlled by the usual suspects. As are The Federal Reserve System and The West’s Clearing Houses and Central Banks.

Brics is a breakaway from the international American financial monopoly, which America began using as an economic blackmail tool during The Obama Era.

Russia, China, India, Brazil, and South Africa, will be joined by South Korea, Mexico, and Turkey in the trading bloc, and international payments system, to isolate America and prevent future economic blackmails.

The 9th. Meeting of Brics will be in Xiamen on Sept.3-5, 2017. Russia and China remain as pivotal members of G-20, despite the propaganda of America excluding Russia from G-8. There are groupings based on trading interests of G-4, G-5, G-6, G-7, G-20, and G-30.

Credit cards exist for purposes of financial enslavement, for those who pay as the good little trapped that they are. Deeply concerned about their fictional Credit Rating. And if they can, they keep borrowing more and more, to pay for the absurdities of their silly little socially entrapped lives.

Those who believe that increased returns are higher than the inflation manipulated against them. Those who believe that franking, negative gearing, and even foreign currency loans, will save them from bracket creep.

In Australia they were The Pitt Street Farmers And The Superphosphate Bounty Recipients of a past era.

If you borrow, you lose. If you use your own, you can’t be blackmailed. If you want the mortgage (you buy the right to pay rates and taxes), pay it off as quickly as possible. Apart from your home maybe, If owning it was smart you would be only buying 100 year leases.

Some theories are cuter than others.

The Global Laundromat Affair or The Moldova Scheme, is as interesting as The Golden Lilly or Black Eagle Affair.

When Vladimir Putin, backed by The KGB and The Russian Orthodox Church, began taking control of Russia in 1998, it eventually became clear that there would be major changes. The Oligarchs were ousted and their assets confiscated. The control of Russia’s natural resources and media were returned to the state. There were no exceptions.

Before Putin could seal the doors, some $100 billion was looted from the Russian banking system through an elaborate and complex scheme, mainly between 2004 and 2008.

Putin’s cousin Igor Putin was involved. Which is how Western MSM conveniently spun the narrative to include Vladimir Putin. But Igor had actually exposed the affair in 2010, when first employed at Master Bank. He is currently a director of Master Bank and Avtovaz Bank.

Veaceslav Platon (code named ‘Rider 1’); was on the boards of Mondindcon Bank and Investprivat Bank in Moldova. On 20/4/2017, he was sentenced to 18 years in prison.

Russian authorities have raided Master (Mactep) Bank; Boris Bulochnik, Meri Tevanyan, and Yevgeny Rogachev; are to be charged as at 14/5/2017. Further actions are expected.

Fictitious loans were drafted concerning banks in Moldova and borrowers in Russia. The borrowers allegedly defaulted, and bought judges in Moldova acted accordingly.

The journey was through Master Bank in Russia through Chadborg Trade and Tronlux Ventures to Mondindcon Bank and Investprivat Bank in Moldova, and their correspondent banks in Latvia.

The funds were broken into parcels. One journey of some $20 billion was through banks in The UK, Cyprus and New Zealand.

The banks involved were Deutsche, Standard Chartered, Barclays, HSBC, Royal Bank of Scotland (and its subsidiaries NatWest and Coutts (The Royal Family’s bank)), J.P.Morgan, and Wells Fargo.

The European funds landed in Zurich and Scotland. Seabon managed the UK operatons, through Birmingham and London.

A few years ago I was the first to advise that The Australian Reserve Bank through its note printing branch, Securency International, was forging foreign currencies. The thrust concerned currencies to affect the economies of Asian countries including Indonesia.

Following raids in Canberra and some activity about London, Peter Chapman of Securency is currently in Wandsworth. All and sundry did a deal and pointed at poor old Peter.

The affair became “Chapman under stress to secure sales for polymer notes”: he being a big tipper for London cabs; he paying bribes to The Nigerian Mint for sales; something about bribes to Saddam Hussein; a Seychelles company called Swingaxle; and a Canadian company supplying ‘janitorial and general contracting services’ and ‘consultancy invoices’.

Nothing  to do with forging Asian Currencies for Asian Tigers Collapse Mark II, the sequel to early 1997. And no Intel agencies were involved in the courts in London.

—————————————————————————

Expect more clearances at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Sean Spicer was so well represented by Sarah Sanders, that he could be floating for a real job. With Kimberly Guilfoyle brought in as deputy to Sarah Sanders.

They are definately not the comedy theatre that became The State Press Room with Jennifer Psaki and Marie Harf, under Victoria Nuland (Nudelman, Kagan), and John Kerry.

Reince Priebus (Chief of Staff) and Michael Dubke (Communications Director), also need a rethink.Steven Bannon and Jared Kushner need to pocket their egos.

Rod Rosenstein will brief the full Senate. Chucky Schumer Senate Dem. Minority Leader, needs to stop screeching ‘Bitch’ to everyone with whom he momentarily disagrees. It’s beginning to make the few remaining Democratic frontline Progressives and Liberals, look somewhat even more deranged. Their ever changing hypocritical narrative should be enough.

The Comey Tapes are interesting. If James keeps lying, out they will be popped. The President is not under any legislation, state or federal, concerning taping. The Obama Affair has slight variations using CIA and NSA. But he has not been pursued.

Those unsuitable for Comey’s job are currently making themselves known.

Scott Pruitt (Administrator of The EPA), has backed away from the Obama led obstruction of The Bristol Bay mining operations. The protect the salmon population is as cute as the ill-informed eco-warriors who caused the ecological devastation that arose from The Fur Seal Affair.

Flushing a dam in a Schwarzenegger drought riddled California to save some 20 trout, or preferring oil train derailments, fires and deaths to a non-existent leak of crude into the artesian system are also classic.

The Fairy At The Bottom Of The Garden, By G Squared

Good to see Dershowitz is finally starting to get it. After Trumpism began, the emeritus one was making noises reminiscent of a little fairy at the bottom of the garden. Lost somewhere between Reversal of Fortune and Paper Chase.

His espousings that SCOTUS would uphold the junk interpretations of Trump’s EOs, banning importation of our brothers and sisters from The Middle East, that Comey was doing the best he could, and perhaps Yates was maligned, brought me to a state of nausea I had not experienced since I heard Ma Clinton was sane and had no baggage.

Good to hear he has backed away from intellectualised progressive assertions.

Image result for comey fbi

I wrote that Comey had been involved in every Clinton affair that would have shut down mere mortals. He was lead investigator, prosecutor, or special advisor, on everything concerning them from the Iran-Contra deliveries through Little Rock and The Whitewater Affair, to The Email Affair.

The Clintons could do no wrong. And what would all that signal, to the best FBI Director that money could buy, since the one and only world famous cross-dresser (Mary) J.Edgar himself. The man who had files on everyone relevant and used them as required. But The Mafia had his.

The same character who said The Mafia did not exist until good old Joe Valachi blew the lid of the whole shop.

On a smaller scale, the pathetic NSW Premier in Australia, Robin Askin, had denied the existence of illegal casinos in Sydney. The culture that followed through to the equally regrettable and protected (Age Tapes Affair) Neville Wran. Biological daddy to the  Australian politically famous… (would you like to take 50-50, or phone a friend?). He admitted it, but the herds are still choking on it. One of the worst kept secrets in Australia.

Hoover was the same fellow who hid the story that JBJ had raped his grandmother at age 14. She was 68. The same fellow who LBJ, through gritted teeth, made a public anouncement that he had appointed Hoover as FBI Director for life. As Hoover stood grinning in the background.

Image result for hoover fbi

The same way LBJ stood grinning when his well hidden hand was behind countless murders including JFK, RFK, and MLK. GHWB was always the mechanic. And The CIA performed the duties. What’s a few innocent people in gaol. What about those who died in Vietnam. What about those who didn’t but wished they had.

Ruth Ament Huffman married Joseph Baines. They had a daughter Rebekah Baines who married Samuel Ealy Johnson Jnr. They had a son named Lyndon Baines Johnson. From the age of five, he began to show signs of a serious mental disorder.

His file is code named ‘NSHJ’. Alfred Kinsey had interviewed him. He admitted to having raped his grandmother when he was fourteen. A copy is kept in ‘Deep Files’ at The Kinsey Institute. It’s classified under ‘National Security’. No FOI. Not even a redaction. Intel hold the original. LBJ was completely certifiable. And America complains about other heads of government or state.

Hoover was in office as Director of The BOI 1924-1935, when it became The FBI. From there he was Director from 1935-1972. He died in office. From 1924-1972 he had been continually in office for 48 years. He held files on everyone of interest, and manipulated 8 presidents.

On his death, his office was sealed and all his ‘personal’ files were removed by force by another intel body. LBJ also arrived on that day to be shown empty cabinets. He died the following year.

LBJ wanted WWIII. It seems a common fixation amongst the disturbed from The West. He planned that through Operation Cyanide. Again: this information is confused and rewritten on the net. It is also classified by Israeli intel. Living victims have difficulty accepting the realities of their government. They believe morality and loyalty to be a two way exercise of trust.

Israel was to sink The USS Liberty as a False Flag to blame Egypt. From there The US Airforce was to bomb Egypt. From there Russia would strike The USN. And bingo … WWIII. It was solely LBJ’s plan. And, as Hitler, LBJ listened to no one and had no strategic rationality whatsoever. He had driven The Vietnam War from a non event of typical American ideological meddling to the total insanity it became under Nixon.

The Liberty was to have been sunk with all hands. No witnesses. USN vessels in the vicinity were stood down, not to respond. USAF bombers were in the air with nuclear devices as The Liberty was being strafed by Israel on 8/6/1967, during The Six Day War that LBJ had initiated.

The silly fellow thought that Khruschev and Gromyki would jump to that one. He learnt nothing from The 1956 Suez Crisis (Tripartite Aggression :Israel, UK, France. Kadesh Operation, Sinai War). Neither from The Berlin Affair from 1948, The Korean War, The Vietnam War, The Cuban Missile Crisis, nor anything from The Cold War. As Clinton, GWB, and Obama learnt nothing. As Trump is struggling to learn from Syria, Afghanistan, and North Korea. Notice how Iran, Iraq, and Ukraine have gone MSM quiet.

As the MSM and intel of the day maintained a silence concerning The Apollo 11 Capsule being dropped in the sea then recovered to the deck of The USS Hornet, LBJ in a 1965 press conference was asked why he was escalating The Vietnam War. He stood, unzipped his pants and exposed his penis shouting ‘That’s why’. The media people left. The usual understanding as with others; that it was an event that did not occur. The Hornet was also involved in the fake Bin Laden Capture.

Comey was on a ten year contract. There was no doubt he would be removed. He was untenable and his true history is horrendous. He was never fit to hold that office. He empowered himself further, took control of The DOJ under Lynch, was infilitrating CIA and NSA, beginning to politically manipulate (The Russian Hack Affair), and blackmail those on whom he held files.

He effectively closed The Clinton File, but was still running the concocted Russian Collusion Lie from June 2016.

Some weeks ago, he was asked to resign, but refused. At the airport meeting with Lynch, Bill Clinton discussed her aiding in the looming Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton Affairs, but he also threatened her. The Clinton Foundation has now all but closed. However there is a considerable wake yet to be realised. Threatening everyone is a standard practice for Slick Willy. He has had a lifelong confusion concerning reality.

Comey controlled Lynch and The DOJ. The immunities and ‘lack of evidence’ are Comey’s doing. Comey was not the innocent party acting in accord with what was delivered by Lynch. Who should have yelled earlier and louder.

In 2004, the internal CIA wars became an issue. The DNI was positioned above The Director of The CIA. It is a Cabinet position and leads The NSC. It was created by The 2004 Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Act. Further strengthened by GWB EOs 12333 and 13470 and Obama’s Presidential Policy Directive 19.

As I previously wrote, Comey has a deep culture in FBI and DOJ. It’s now starting to show. Trump needs to shovel it out deep from the top until a solid foundation is found on which to rebuild.

The current remaining malignancy will play the game of manufacturing political damage, and play it through MSM for herd tutored reaction. There are many political actors who would also play out the deceptions. They all forget they are supposed to be representing a nation of people, not themselves and their illusions.

NSC meetings have 17 intel people pushing their individual agendas. And each one of those has a range of divisions and subsidiaries. Many of which do not speak to each other, are at war with each other, and infiltrate each other.

Legitimate coordinated responses are not possible. Fully accurate intel is not possible. Acting correctly from such an alleged consensus is not possible.

More Evidence that Washington Is Criminally Insane

America’s Top Scientists Confirm: U.S. Goal Now Is to Conquer Russia

Eric Zuesse

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists published a study, on 1 March 2017, which opened:

The US nuclear forces modernization program has been portrayed to the public as an effort to ensure the reliability and safety of warheads in the US nuclear arsenal, rather than to enhance their military capabilities. In reality, however, that program has implemented revolutionary new technologies that will vastly increase the targeting capability of the US ballistic missile arsenal. This increase in capability is astonishing — boosting the overall killing power of existing US ballistic missile forces by a factor of roughly three — and it creates exactly what one would expect to see, if a nuclear-armed state were planning to have the capacity to fight and win a nuclear war by disarming enemies with a surprise first strike.

It continues:

Because the innovations in the super-fuze appear, to the non-technical eye, to be minor, policymakers outside of the US government (and probably inside the government as well) have completely missed its revolutionary impact on military capabilities and its important implications for global security.

This study was co-authored by America’s top three scientists specializing in analysis of weaponry and especially of the geostrategic balance between nations: Hans Kristensen, Matthew McKinzie, and Theodore Postol. Their report continues:

This vast increase in US nuclear targeting capability, which has largely been concealed from the general public, has serious implications for strategic stability and perceptions of US nuclear strategy and intentions.

Russian planners will almost surely see the advance in fuzing capability as empowering an increasingly feasible US preemptive nuclear strike capability — a capability that would require Russia to undertake countermeasures that would further increase the already dangerously high readiness of Russian nuclear forces. Tense nuclear postures based on worst-case planning assumptions already pose the possibility of a nuclear response to false warning of attack. The new kill capability created by super-fuzing increases the tension and the risk that US or Russian nuclear forces will be used in response to early warning of an attack — even when an attack has not occurred.

The authors explain why an accidental start of World War III or global annihilation would be likeiier from Russia than from the U.S.:

Russia does not have a functioning space-based infrared early warning system but relies primarily on ground-based early warning radars to detect a US missile attack. Since these radars cannot see over the horizon, Russia has less than half as much early-warning time as the United States. (The United States has about 30 minutes, Russia 15 minutes or less.)

In other words: whereas Trump would have about 30 minutes to determine whether Putin had launched a blitz-first-strike attack, Putin would have less than 15 minutes to determine whether Trump had — and if at the end of that period, on either side, there is no certainty that no blitz-first-strike attack had been launched by the other, then that person would be obligated to launch a blitz attack against the other, upon the assumption that not to do so would result not only in a toxic planet with nuclear winter and universal starvation, but also in a humiliating and scandalous absence of retaliation against that perpetrator, which would be a humiliation on top of an annihilation, and thus a sharing of blame along with the actual perpetrator, which sharing, for whatever term might remain during that passive party’s continued existence, would probably be an unbearable shame and result quickly in suicide, if that national leader’s own surviving countrymen don’t execute him before he kills himself.

Inevitably, the strictly personal morality and self-image of a nation’s leader in that type of situation are factors other than the very public global consequences that will determine the person’s decision; but, with only (at most) 15 minutes to decide on the Russian side, and 30 minutes to decide on the American side, there is an inestimably high chance now, that a nuclear war will terminate the lives of everyone who currently exists and who doesn’t soon die from the ordinary causes before then. Even the most dire projections of the dangers from global warming come nowhere close to matching that danger.

The question, now, then, is: How did the world come to this extraordinarily ominous stage? The co-authors repeatedly refer to the secretiveness at the top of the American government as one essential source, such as “… which has largely been concealed from the general public …” and “… policymakers outside of the US government (and probably inside the government as well) have completely missed …,” and these passages refer to an ordinary phenomenon in conspiracies at the top of a large criminal operation such as corporate criminality, where only a very small circle of individuals, commonly a half-dozen or even less, are made aware of the operation’s chief strategic objective and of the main tactical means that are being put into place so as to execute the plan. In this particular instance, it wouldn’t include the head of every Cabinet department, nor anything nearly so broad as that; but, clearly, since the key decision, to implement the “super-fuze” on “all warheads deployed on US ballistic missile submarines” was made by Obama, he is the principal person reasonably to be blamed for this situation. However, Trump as the person who has inherited this situation from his predecessor has, as yet, given no indication at all of reversing and eliminating the now-operative top U.S. strategic objective of conquering Russia. The more time that passes without Trump’s announcing to the public that he has inherited this morally repulsive operation from his predecessor and is removing all of the super-fuses, the more that Trump himself is taking ownership of Obama’s plan. Typically in such a situation, the leader who has inherited such a plan will be assassinated if he gives any clear indication of an intention to reverse or cancel it (the key insiders are typically obsessive about ‘success’, especially at so late a stage in it); and, so, if Trump were to try to do that, he would almost certainly try to hide that fact until the inherited plan has already become effectively deactivated and no longer a threat.

The key turning-point that led up to the present crisis was the gradual and increasing acceptance, on the American side, of the concept of using nuclear weapons for conquest instead of only for deterrence — the prior system, for deterrence, having been called “MAD” for Mutually Assured Destruction, the idea that if the two nuclear superpowers were to go to war against each other, then the entire world would be destroyed so catastrophically as to make any idea of a ‘winner’ and a ‘loser’ in such a conflict a grotesque distortion of the reality: that reality being mutual annihilation and an unlivable planet. A landmark event in the process of reconceptualizing such a war as being ‘winnable’, was the publication in 2006 of two articles in the two most prestigious journals of international relations, Foreign Affairs and International Security, both formally introducing the concept of “Nuclear Primacy” or the (alleged) desirability for the U.S. to plan a nuclear conquest of Russia. Until those two articles (both of which were co-authored by the same two authors), any such idea was considered wacky, but since then it has instead been mainstream. As the final link above (the article that’s linked-to immediately before) explains, the source even prior to George W. Bush goes all the way back to 24 February 1990 when his father, then also the U.S. President, secretly initiated the operation ultimately to conquer Russia, and within that article are links to the ultimate source-documents about that origin of the path toward world-ending nuclear war; so, getting to the original causes of the steady progression after 24 February 1990 in the direction of a conquest of Russia by the U.S. (assisted by its allies) can now be addressed by historians, even though only now is it finally being revealed to the public as news, though 27 years after it had actually begun in a very fateful decision by George Herbert Walker Bush, which has already cost American taxpayers trillions of dollars for no good purpose and resulting perhaps in the ghastliest ultimate end.

This article is being submitted for publication to all news-media without charge, in the hope that the current U.S. President will comment publicly upon it, even if only to ridicule it so as to avoid being assassinated for referring to it at all. This is an extremely dangerous time in history, and Donald Trump is now on a very hot seat, which any intelligent and accurately informed person recognizes to be the case. If ever the world needed courageous great leadership, now is the time; because, without that, we might all soon be entering hell. To avoid it, starting now 27 years after the U.S. government initiated this path, would be enormously difficult, but not yet totally impossible. This is where we are at the present time; and, ever since the coup in Ukraine in 2014, the purchases of ‘nuclear-proof’ bunkers have been soaring as a result.

This extreme danger is the new global reality. If the elimination of the threat does not come from the U.S. White House, the culmination of the threat will — regardless of which side strikes first. The decision — either to invade Russia, or else to cancel and condemn America’s decade-plus preparation to do so — can be made only by the U.S. President. If he remains silent about the matter, then Putin can reasonably proceed on the assumption that he’ll have to be the one to strike first. He didn’t place himself in that position; the U.S. regime did. Let’s hope that the U.S. will stand down the threat, now.

Pike River Tragedy: Six Years Later, Disturbing Secret Footage Emerges

How does this happen? Six years of grief for these families and it turns out rescue teams have been down there and taken footage and pictures.

This kind of thing doesn’t stay under wraps, especially under the circumstances, without someone wanting to cover up.

Radio NZ Report below:

https://www.radionz.co.nz/news/national/329792/new-pike-river-mine-footage-‘extraordinary-and-alarming’

© RNZ Solid Energy has said a special meeting may be held to discuss whether the mine’s drift can be safely re-entered.

The lawyer representing some Pike River families says footage showing workers inside the drift is both extraordinary and alarming.

Newshub has released footage of two men and a robot inside the drift of the Pike River mine, three months after the final explosion.

The two men are wearing Mines Rescue uniforms and using breathing apparatus.

The robot appears to emit smoke or steam when it overheats, but there’s no fire or flame, which is at odds with claims by the government that the mine is too unsafe to re-enter.

Nigel Hampton, QC, said this was the first time in six years he had seen or heard about the video.

“The families, or at least some of them, will be incandescent over this. They will be extraordinarily angered by this,” he said.

And he said it was extraordinary that the footage was not shown to the Royal Commission, as it was relevant to the issues they had looked at.

Mr Hampton said it meant that state agencies, the police and a state owned entity, Solid Energy, had known about the exploration for quite some time, and yet it had never been divulged or revealed to the families.

He was concerned by the police’s role in the case, Mr Hampton said.

“First, it was the police intervention that prevented rescuers going into that mine in what was a window of opportunity after the first explosion, before the subsequent explosions,” he said.

The mine collapsed in the subsequent explosions.

“To have this material in their hands and not reveal it, I find quite alarming,” Mr Hampton said.

“It is relevant to all the issues that have been discussed over the last six years about re-entry.

“It shows that what the family and the family experts have been saying, namely that this drift is recoverable,” he said.

The footage also showed that the drift was inert, making re-entry possible providing those who went in wore breathing apparatus, Mr Hampton said.

He urged the government and Worksafe to take another look at the advice they had been given and to make a concerted effort to enable a proper staged recovery of the drift

Christchurch, Booz Allen Hamilton, And The 2030 Agenda, by Martin Harris

LISTEN TO THE WORDS OF OLD UNCLE VIKTOR. HE’S RIGHT.

IF YOU MESS WITH NATURE, THEN NATURE WILL FIGHT BACK. AND NATURE WILL WIN.

SO. ARE YOU WITH NATURE, OR AGAINST IT?

SURVIVAL, OR EXTINCTION?

IN THE YEAR 2030, OUR FATE COULD BE DECIDED.

Take good look at the following wonderful illustrations:

The artist is Roger Dean, noted for his album cover fantasy art. So these are just some artist’s dream, yes?

How about these:

The architect is Frank Lloyd Wright, and once again, these appear to be a creative mind indulging in flights of fantasy.

You would be wrong. These are real designs. Two artists separated by decades of time, a continent apart, with the same goal. They both believe that you deserve to live in a better world, and that you are being deceived, and you are being made to live in a world that destroys and works against nature. They are presenting you with visions of how our homes and cities should and can be.

See for yourselves:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uj07nyrJJQg

And yet our greedy Elitist governments want you to live and work in bland, brick and concrete industrial wastelands. Now they want you to make do with less and live in containers, while others have no hope of affording even the most basic dwelling.

Meanwhile they hoard trillions of dollars in their tax havens. Stolen money, stolen opportunities.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fbvquHSPJU

See those images above? This is what they stole from us.

In the wake of the 2010 Greendale fault earthquake, Christchurch breathed a sigh of relief. Sure, there were homes and buildings damaged, and Kaiapoi in particular was badly affected. Buildings are buildings, we’ll make ’em newer and better. Some of those rickety old structures needed tearing down anyhow, right?

A chance to do some rebuilding.

The main thing is, no one died. Such lucky timing. And a once-in-16,000-year event they say? No worries. Open up the EQC coffers, the tradies have a field day overcharging and draining said coffers. Everyone happy…..

So why was the ground still shaking?

Did someone mention rebuilding?

Be careful what you wish for. In order to rebuild, one must first demolish.

In the Aftermath of February 22,  2011, a slogan emerged in Christchurch. A single word:

And heaven knows. we sure need it.

I won’t delve, yet again, into the extraordinary coincidences and events that led to the “On Cue” demolition job that was the February 22 ‘quake, as others , including Jeff Phillips, have covered everything in commendable detail. Nor will I repeat my personal experiences, which have been covered in other blogs.

I’m going to focus on one man, his mission in Christchurch, and the corporations he works for and the connections that reveal a combined and co ordinated effort to bring into being the New World Order.

They call him “Mr. Disaster”, and what an appropriate nickname it is.

Let’s start with this man’s entry into Christchurch. He was here for a somewhat controversial assemblage of dignitaries at the Christchurch Convention centre; the Pacific Partner’s Forum (PPF), paving the way for the TPPA. While this event drew a fair amount of media scrutiny due to the “closed door” secrecy, it would all be eclipsed and forgotten the next day:

Mere moments before the quake struck, “Mr. Disaster” and his retinue departed Christchurch, for the safety of Wellington. Right on cue.

Thad Allen

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Thad Allen

Thad William Allen (born January 16, 1949) is a former United States Coast Guard admiral who served as the 23rd Commandant of the Coast Guard. Allen is best known for his widely praised[1][2][3] performance directing the federal response to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in the Gulf Coast region from September 2005 to January 2006, and for his role as National Incident Commander of the Unified Command for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. Robert J. Papp, Jr. succeeded him as Commandant on May 25, 2010, in a change of command ceremony.

In his four decades of service, Allen has held operational command both at sea and ashore, conducting missions to support the maritime safety, security and environmental stewardship interests of the nation. He served aboard USCGC Androscoggin (WHEC-68), and USCGC Gallatin (WHEC-721) and commanded USCGC Citrus (WLB-300). He performed dual roles as commanding officer of Group Long Island Sound and Captain of the Port, and he commanded Group Atlantic City and LORAN Station Lampang, Thailand[4] from 1974 to 1975.[5] He also commanded the Seventh Coast Guard District in Miami and the Atlantic Area in Portsmouth, Virginia.[6]

Allen remained on active duty for 36 days after being succeeded as commandant while serving as Deepwater Horizon National Incident Commander. He officially retired from the U.S. Coast Guard on June 30, 2010, but continued to serve as National Incident Commander as a civilian for an additional three months. He has served as an Executive Vice President at Booz Allen Hamilton since November, 2011.[7]

Wow. Quite a career. This is the important part:

RAND Corporation and Booz Allen Hamilton[edit]

In October 2010, Allen joined the RAND Corporation as a senior fellow.[15] On November 28, 2011, Booz Allen Hamilton named Allen a Senior Vice President at Booz Allen Hamilton. Allen joined the firm’s Justice and Homeland Security business and will lead development of thought leadership and client engagement regarding the direction of law enforcement and homeland security.[16]

RAND corporation. If you haven’t heard of that one, you should have. What role did Allen play as a “Senior Fellow” at RAND?

http://www.rand.org/topics/public-transportation.html

“In this Resilient Communities podcast, Admiral Thad Allen discusses the critical questions confronting the field of community resilience as well as a new toolkit developed by RAND researchers to support community disaster planning.”

https://www.rand.org/multimedia/audio/2011/12/12/creating-community…

The Admiral’s specialist field then, is disaster rehabilitation, resilience, and infrastructure and community rebuilding. I should think by now, every Christchurch resident reading this will be sitting up and taking notice.

This guy just happened to be in Christchurch moments before the big quake hit, moved out of town during the event itself, then came back to advise us on rebuilding..?

HELLO, WAKE UP!

One would almost think this earthquake was expected. Hillary Clinton sure seemed to think it was “right on cue”.

SO WHY IS A MILITARY MAN WITH NO ARTISTIC ABILITY, NO IMAGINATION, AND NO PERCEPTIBLE AFFINITY FOR NATURE, ADVISING US ON HOW TO REBUILD CHRISTCHURCH, “THE GARDEN CITY”?

But RAND isn’t the half of it.

Here’s the big part, and the part that seems to have escaped the attention of most:

Booz Allen Hamilton.

So what? Big consultancy corporation aren’t they?

Transportation and infrastructure consultants. No wonder they picked Allen to be their man. But, again, so what?

https://www.boozallen.com/careers.html

Looking to “change the world”? This is your firm! Hint of NWO? You bet. They do have a branch here in NZ, and have been heavily involved in rail and transportation consultancy here. Now things start to get really interesting. BAH is not what it seems to be.

“Booz Allen, a consulting firm that earns billions of dollars by working for American intelligence agencies, has been called the world’s most profitable spy organization. …. the lucrative contracting business that American intelligence now relies on to run its vast, global surveillance operations.

 The company also employed Edward J. Snowden, who spirited out a cache of documents that, in 2013, exposed the extent of American surveillance programs in the United States and around the world.

Booz Allen is one of a handful of defense and intelligence contractors that blur the line between the government’s intelligence work and private enterprise.”

https://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/07/us/booz-allen-hamilton-nsa.html?…

In plain English, guys. the NSA is advising on the rebuild of Christchurch. And has been advising and consulting in New Zealand’s infrastructure for a long time!

Firms like Booz Allen Hamilton and their employees also spend big to maintain their influence in Washington through lobbying and campaign contributions. According to OpenSecrets, a project of the Center for Responsive Politics, Booz Allen Hamilton employees donated $139,907 to candidates in the 2016 election cycle, and the company has spent $310,000 lobbying since 2015.

Booz Allen Hamilton’s lobbyists also benefit from the “revolving door” of the military-industrial complex. According to OpenSecrets, “4 out of 6 Booz Allen Hamilton lobbyists in 2015-2016 have previously held government jobs.”

At $35,017, Hillary Clinton was the top recipient of contributions from Booz Allen Hamilton employees. The contractor’s employees also donated $15,165 to DNC Services Corp, a Democratic Party PAC, and $13,603 to Bernie Sanders during the same time period.

Employees also supported the Republican Party, with just under $20,000 in contributions going to top GOP candidates Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush. Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for president, netted $4,100, less than his GOP rivals.

Both Clinton and Trump have sharply criticized Snowden, with Trump going so far as to call for him to be executed. Even Sanders was reluctant to praise the whistleblower during his campaign, though he has joined the “Pardon Snowden” movement since ending his candidacy for president.

In a 2013 interview with Democracy Now!, Shorrock warned that Americans should be alarmed by the cozy relationship between U.S. intelligence agencies and the corporate 1%. He told Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman:

“[W]e have hundreds of thousands of contractors with security clearances. We have hundreds of thousands of federal workers in, you know, Homeland Security and intelligence. We have a massive number of people that are monitoring other Americans. I think it’s a very dangerous situation.

“Booz Allen collected $5.9 billion in revenue last year(2013), with a majority of its contracts coming from the U.S. government. The Associated Press reports that 98 percent of Booz Allen contracts were from the NSA and other federal agencies. Roughly three-fourths of its 25,000 employees hold government security clearances, and half have top-secret clearances.”

So, we see that “Mr. Disaster” has some very powerful and rather terrifying connections. But wait. there’s more.

Take a look at the subject of this symposium:

https://ams.confex.com/ams/96Annual/webprogram/8AEROSOL.html

Look closely. Who’s on the panel?

“Plenary Session 1
2016 Presidential Forum: Serving Society in Times of Crisis: Past, …

Location: La Nouvelle B-C ( New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center)
Moderator: Maureen McCann, News 13
Panelists: Admiral Thad Allen, United States Coast Guard (ret), Executive Vice President Booz Allen Hamilton; Kerry Emanuel, MIT; Shirley Laska, University of New Orleans; Max Mayfield, WPLG-TV/Former NOAA/National Hurricane Center Director”
There he is, at an “Aerosol and Cloud Interaction” symposium. Incredible.
Now check this out. This PDF file is well worth reading in it’s entirety, but here’s a few passages that shed some light on the agenda:
Strengthening Regional Resilience through National, Regional, and …

Nov 21, 2013 – light rail system, buses, and other transportation services were …… Thad Allen, Executive Vice President, Booz Allen Hamilton, McLean, VA.

“Resilience”. A word we get sick of hearing here in Christchurch….”to NEW AND MORE FREQUENT disasters”. If one reads carefully, it sounds like they are using expected (engineered?) disasters to not only demolish and rebuild communities physically in steel and concrete, but also change the mindset of the affected communities, to make them more “resilient”. Is resilient NWO-speak for “compliant”? Happier with less? Less independent?
So, again, we have these drills, preparing all sectors of society. all organisations, to work together as a cohesive unit, to put aside their differences in the face of threat and disaster.
WHAT DOES THIS SOUND LIKE?
Listen to Ronnie Raygun:
Project Blue Beam. Take away the aliens and replace with TERRORISTS and ENGINEERED DISASTERS, and what do you have? In fact, Werner Von Braun suggested that terror threats and “natural” disasters would be used, and fake alien holograms would only be an absolute last resort.
Last resort for what? For instigating the New World Order. Enter the United Nations, whom Reagan was addressing in the YouTube clip above.
It’s not called Blue Beam these days, nor Blue Cascade.  It’s called Agenda 30.
The language and intent are utterly familiar as being absolutely aligned with RAND and Booz Allen’s material on disasters, resilience, rebuilding, and psychological conditioning.

“Most members of the public and the news media see the UN as a secular organisation, but UN documents reveal the organisation believes it has a “spiritual” mission to usher in a new world leader who has yet to reveal themselves. That’s one of the reasons the Pope’s involvement with the UN is significant.

“No human force will ever be able to destroy the United Nations,” wrote Assistant UN Secretary General Robert Muller in 1994, “for the United Nations is not a mere building or a mere idea; it is not a man-made creation.”

If you think that’s a strange statement for one of the UN’s topmost officials to make, what followed was a doozy:

“The United Nations is the vision-light of the Absolute Supreme, which is slowly, steadily and unerringly illuminating the ignorance, the night
of our human life.

“The divine success and supreme progress of the United Nations is bound to become a reality. At his choice hour, the Absolute Supreme will
ring His own victory-bell here on Earth through the loving and serving heart of the United Nations.”

http://www.investigatemagazine.co.nz/Investigate/17193/agenda-2030-…

Sounds distinctly NWO-Project Blue Beam, yes?

Remember The Lucis Trust, the UN charter organisation? Their Satanic-Luciferian influence is all over this. Check out the connections for yourself, most of you probably already have.

That year, 2030.
Take note of how often it turns up in the news, in reports and studies. Take a look at stuff from your government and local councils. Type in any country or city in the Western world in a search with “2030” and see what you get.
What catches my attention is how big a part local councils play in the plan. Think your local authorities are independent? Thanks to the UN, RAND, and Booz Allen, they are being carefully networked and aligned.
Let’s look at Christchurch as a textbook case.
A huge inter-forces military exercise just prior to the big quake (with a disaster relief component, no less). The NZ Navy’s HMS Canterbury docked at Lyttleton, readily provisioned to feed the masses, who were as yet unawares of anything untoward (the September quake was a “once in 16000 year event”, remember?).
In the immediate aftermath, Mayor Bob busy showboating for the cameras while pledging colossal sums of council money to the government led rebuild effort, controlled by “Emergency Minister” Gerry. Meanwhile, an endless parade of unmarked Learjets dispense US dignitaries who “just popped over” to have afternoon tea and a quiet chat.
 Bob neatly steps aside to claim a knighthood, leaving Gerry’s Labour nemesis Lianne to explain why the Council doesn’t have the money it pledged under Bob’s tenure. Slowly but surely, the council bows down to the government while scrabbling to avoid selling assets (Christchurch being the last NZ bastion of non privatised infrastructure assets).
Does anyone sense a plot here?
Christchurch in the years afterwards, with no end in sight, has become a city of orange road cones and shipping containers.
Shipping containers. Who knew there were so many of them, or how many uses they had?
Ostensibly, they were utilised in the Christchurch rebuild to store personal possessions while homes were being rebuilt (and that’s an epic story in itself as I can personally attest!). Then atrted appearing modified into shelters, sleep-outs, bus stops, and even restaurants and whole shopping malls.
The “Pop Up Mall” in Christchurch caused a legal tousle over intellectual ownership with a London based outfit, and it was this that gave me pause for thought: This was not just a Christchurch temporary thing? Not just a quick and clever solution to ‘quake rebuild expedience? I started looking around the world, via the ‘net, and I saw container housing and living popping up all over the place, along with references to UN Agenda 30.
The Earthquake in  Christchurch, and disasters elsewhere, including refugee crises, were being used as an excuse to usher in the “city of the future”. A future where the average family cannot hope to afford a home, where “smaller is better”, and where a rack-em-and -stack-em mentality applies to human dwelling spaces.
Beautiful, no? In the words of Cat Stevens, “Where will the children play?”
Take another look at the images at the start of this blog. I say again, that’s what we could be living in. No, perhaps not everyone can afford a dream house like Fallingwater, but the principle of working with nature, respecting and beautifying the landscape, applies.
Roger Dean’s organically styled homes, constructed of Gunnite over steel mesh, are not only cheap to build, but extremely strong and well insulated.
Or you could live in the Agenda 30 world of soul destroying steel boxes pictured above, which sadly is the road we are headed down.
“But Martin”, you argue, “We have an overpopulation issue, and a refugee crisis, and not enough money and resources, and this is what we have to do to survive”.
So the UN Agenda for 2030 says, so says the Church of Malthus.
The facts are this, and RAND well knows it: Human population is not set to grow exponentially ad infinitum. The best projections suggest that world population will top out at approximately 9 billion. There’s still plenty of space out there IF we work with nature and our environment. Already, while Moslem and Middle Eastern peoples are spreading across the world, Russia and Japan are dwindling in population rapidly.
Even temporary solutions for refugees can be attractive, inspiring and ecologically friendly.
Space is not an issue. There is lots of it. We just have to know how to use it.
And speaking of space, why are the Elite talking so negatively about our future if this NWO agenda is so wonderful? Why are they planning to leave for Mars?
They lack hope it seems.
Just as Christchurch is the gateway to Antarctica, so, it seems, Antarctica is the gateway to Mars:
“Elon Musk, the founder of the rocket company SpaceX, recently said he plans to send people to Mars by 2022. Boeing has also challenged SpaceX in beating the company to the red planet. Musk said he’s OK with this because all he wants to do is colonize Mars and protect humanity from self-imposed annihilation or a rogue asteroid.”
Perhaps the Elite will leave us to get with building a better world after all?
One can only hope…..
And there is the whole crux of the problem: The Elites and their money.
Just as lack of space is not an issue, neither is lack of money. And as with space, it’s how it’s used that counts.
Take a good, hard, objective look at Agenda 30 and the whole austerity. think small, reduce-your-carbon-footprint and share-your-meagre-resources spin. It applies to us, and not them. Not the 1%. They continue to hoard their trillions, prepare their escape plans and prepare to wash their filthy hands of the mess they’ve made of our planet in the name of greed.
While Mars colonisation may be a relatively long term goal for these tax dodging parasites, they have more immediate escape plans lined up. While we are expected to live in stacked shipping containers in a bleak industrial jungle of steel and concrete, this is one of many luxurious options for the Elite:
Here’s another:
If 2030 is going to be so much better for us all. then what are these guys preparing for?
there is another factor we need to take into account:
A mass extinction event is overdue. Some would say, quite reasonably, that it has begun already.
(Take note that I personally think that a “Global Warming” based extinction event is most unlikely. This is propaganda, but it is most interesting that the specific year, 2030, is used.)
If the expanding Earth theory that I have blogged about previously has any validity, then there may be nothing anybody can do about it.
Is that what Thad Allen and his associates really came to Christchurch for, to utilise this city as a trial run for The End Of The World As We Know It?
Are they preparing to emerge from their luxury bunkers to lord over the “resilient” survivors?
Listen to your myths and legends, because more and more, they are turning out to have a basis in fact. Twelve thousand years ago, humans just like you and I faced a massive extinction event. They left monuments to transmit their knowledge and serve as both a warning and a message of hope. The “giants” of greed and selfishness where wiped out, but the human race endured. So it will be again. Alternative archaeologists have been saying so for decades and the mainstream is now acknowledging this.
If this is what’s happening, some forthcoming global catastrophe (and they DO happen!), then we really do have an opportunity to start again and to do it better than before. I’m not talking about something that’s going to happen overnight, like a Hollywood movie, but something that may require transmission of knowledge, ideas, ethics and moral responsibility that we can pass on to our children.
Again, I say look at the legends of ancient civilisations that perished in a “great flood”. Look at the lessons and actual data encoded in these stories. Lessons to be transmitted across generations for those who are awake enough to see and hear.
Let’s make sure our future generations get the right message.
Lets hope they will listen.
Let’s hope we do not embark on the same path of environmental catastrophe again.
Let’s hope Elitists, military strategists and greedy corporations do not rule the world next time.
Hope.

I will leave the last words to Roger Dean, who has been an inspiration to me all my life:

And Frank Lloyd Wright, who I have only recently discovered:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1WMmMzxHkM

If you listened to these two men speak, you listened to hope.

The Illusioned, By G Squared

The MSM Comedy Hour never ends. Murdoch just advised that Fox News is doing great. While down at CNN they ran footage of Chinese soldiers, in Chinese uniforms, with Chinese weapons, boarding a Chinese helicopter, and said they were American Marines. They have Fact Checkers as well as armies of editors. But sometimes the comedy and fiction writers just seem to take hold.

Another Junk Law Bench Warmer has emerged. Judge William Orrick III has determined that Trump cannot block federal funding to cities which refuse to obey federal laws concerning the protection of illegal immigrants; The Sanctuary City inanity. (Ed’s note, see Rappoport: https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2017/04/25/breaking-obama-judge-blocks-fed-action-against-sanctuary-cities-he-raised-money-for-obama/ )

This character was a money chaser (bundler: avoiding contribution laws) for Obama. A non entity Junk Law enthusiast. He worked to block Alabama passing state legislation to control illegal immigrants. He did the same in Arizona, concerning SB1070, to control illegals.

Image result for Judge William Orrick III sanctuary cities

He was such a genius at his career or bundling for Obama, that Obama popped him up to be a bench warmer. The notorious little fellow even promising that he would exclude himself from decisions concerning illegal immigrants. But he lied. Who would believe that he would do such a thing?

Texas is currently passing state legislation to control illegal immigrants. The legislation correctly includes the gaoling of local sheriffs who refuse to enforce federal immigration laws.

Illegal Immigration is a major Socio-Economic issue. It is not some social engineering moralised play toy. You either get it, or you get out. Employment is taken from Americans; causing economic damage. They commit crime and use the medical and legal systems, causing economic damage. The ancillary damage is estimated at $90 billion for fiscal 2017.

Nancy Pelosi is House Minority Leader; a Democrat. Her history is littered with absurdities and delusions. To suggest she has no idea; is being overly kind. Obviously she’s well qualified to be a high end Democrat.

She appeared on a TV wafflefest supporting illegal immigration. A clueless jockey of the first order. With her were two ranchers. They advised that they had to fence and patrol their own properties to prevent what was happening; including the movement of violent drug gangs. One advised that over a 30 year period, over half a million captures and returns had been conducted. But Pelosi knew better.

House Majority Leader, Paul Ryan, seriously damaged the passage of The Obamacare Repeal Bill. Instead of a one sentence repeal with the new legislation attached; he puts forward a 2,000 page repeal. Everthing focussed on that document, without the new legislation gaining any traction. He also naively assumed votes in a chamber controlled by a GOP majority without confirming.

As a consequence of the latter; The Congressional Human Rights Caucus (the same crew who sucked in the Nayirah al Sabah, Lauri Fitz Pegado, Hill and Knowlton, Kuwaiti Humidicrib Lie in 1990) decides it will package its 30 lower house votes to block the repeal. Ryan has to pull the vote.

The current position; which should never have occurred; and will be difficult to remove in the future; involves the passage of the repeal, together with the new legislation; but with the addition that; members of Congress and their staff will be excluded and treated separately as a privileged sector.

The full import of which is difficult to explain to the community who sought a better system. The community will be carrying Congressional members, their staff and their families. Those on high goverment salaries and benefits will be carried by those at the other end of that spectrum.

The USN has just come out posturing that they are being threatened by Iranian patrol boats, when The USN wonders into Iranian territorial coastal waters in The Persian Gulf.

In reality it is virtually a daily event, and is The USN charging down on small Iranian patrol boats. The USN stopped the practice in The South China Sea, when The Chinese Navy sent out tankers to stand fast amidships infront of USN charge downs. The USN only needed to ram one.

The USS Mahan, guided missile destroyer was threatened when the Iranian patrol boat came within 1,000 meters. So The Mehan fired a flare at it, and it moved away. That certainly would have terrified anyone. Even any terrorists on that patrol boart.

On 3/7/1988; The USS Vincennes under the command of William C. Rogers III in The Persian Gulf; moved close into Iranian coastal waters; in what was later described as; ‘Reckless and aggressive behaviour’. He ordering the firing of an SM-2MR Surface to Air missile, shooting down Iranian Air Flight 655, murdering 290 civilians.

Image result for 3/7/1988; The USS Vincennes under the command of William C. Rogers III in The Persian Gulf;

The civilian flight had taken off from Mehraban International Airport, Tehran, on a sceduled flight to Dubai. It was in Iranian airspace, and would not pass any disputed airspace.

Following which many deceptions were put forward by America and the propagandised MSM. One was that; The Vincennes had launched a helicopter, it had accidentally wandered into Iranian airspace. Rogers thought that an F-14A was taking off to engage the helicopter, so he had it shot down.

Iran had taken delivery directly from Gruman of F14As some 18 years prior. They were armed with unguided bombs and unguided missiles. And would not have been sent to engage or warn. Rogers would have been aware of all this.

Then it was put that The Vincennes tried to make radio contact with the aircraft without success. IA-655 was on continuous signal civilian IFF Mode III. Not military IFF Mode II. In addition; The Vincennes would be normally monitoring all local area frequencies. The chatter between IA-655 and ground control would have been monitored. Radar would have further confirmed the position.

All of which was further confirmed by the ICAO report that followed.

MSM had run with strong ethnocentric bias, fed by the Reagan-GHWB administration.

Rogers was moved to a desk job st Port Loma and retired into hiding in August 1991.

On 10/3/1989, Rogers’ wife Sharon stopped at a traffic light in San Diego. The car was hit by a small rocket and exploded into flames. The local police and FBI describing the device as a pipe bomb. She was not injured. No one was fitted for the event. Which signals another issue.

The American government in traditional form; after a hearing brought in The ICJ, offered an ex-gratia payment to the families of the people murdered; without any liability, explanation, or apology. It was a total of $61.8 million in total. Not a big print run for Treasury.

The intel files read an interesting parallel with MH-17. Except for the SVR-GRU hack concerning the latter. Neither of which I can render. There is also a connection with Lockerbie PA-103 (21/12/1988), and MH-370. Libya did not down PA-103.
