She’s Back! Hillary Clinton Returns.

Comment: Hillary Clinton is returning to public life. But if she wants to help Democrats, she should tread carefully.

With the Democrats still trying to figure out who’s going to lead them, Hillary Clinton’s reemergence on the political scene is attracting a lot of attention. But while her recent appearances indicate that she can still lend a high-profile voice to Democratic causes, Clinton risks igniting a controversy that distracts from her party’s message.

On Wednesday, during an event at the Code Conference, Clinton told interviewers Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg that she believed the  Democratic National Committee’s failures contributed to her loss . This rankled some political operatives and caused a small Twitter furor. Over on the right, Fox News fired up a Clinton chyron and brought pundits on to condemn her words.

The moment underscored for Clinton that if she’s going to return to public life — and help to Democrats — she’s going to need to choose her words and actions wisely.

Democratic operatives say it’s not surprising that Clinton would reenter the fray. She has immense resources and influence after a historic election and a long career in politics. And Trump is working to enact the kind of future she ran against.

However, she remains a deeply polarizing figure — and an unpopular one. A Suffolk University poll from March found that Trump had a higher favorability rating than Clinton and that her favorability has dropped since the election.

Clinton is also returning at a time when political watchers wish to move on from 2016 yet continue to pore over the results, trying to figure out how to move the party forward in 2018 and 2020. Though her prominence in the Democratic Party means she’s unlikely to ever fully disappear from the spotlight, she is human kindling for the combustible debates happening among Democrats right now.

“I think that she has people that were more than distraught that she lost. Those people are trying to figure out what to do,” said Scott Mulhauser, who served in the Obama administration.  “I think her emerging and steering some of her supporters toward causes, toward issues, toward moments where they can weigh in, helps at a moment where a lot of her supporters are looking for outlets and looking to change things in Washington.”

Mark Longabaugh, who served as a media adviser on Sen. Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign, said,“Pointing out the flaws in Trump’s foreign policy, Trump’s health-care polices, I think that’s a very appropriate place for her to be.”

But operatives agreed that any remarks she makes about the 2016 election — why she lost, for example — may do more harm than good.

“I think the concern right now is there’s a lot of talk of unity and there’s a lot of finger-pointing from progressives who want to point out institutional issues that exist within the party,” said Nomiki Konst, who served as a Sanders campaign surrogate. “It’s like there’s this external campaign of: ‘We’re all fine. We’re all coming together. We’re part of the resistance together.’ But the reality is there are real infrastructure issues within the party that need to be addressed.”

Longabaugh had similar sentiments. “I would be less inclined to do an autopsy of the election in terms of Comey, the Russians, the this ones, the that ones,” he said.  “I don’t think that’s very productive for the Democratic Party moving forward.”

As one longtime Democratic operative noted, Clinton is often at her best — and perceived the best — when she isn’t running for office and when she’s lending her gravitas to causes that she believes in.

But some believe she should be wary of giving the impression that any public immersion is a “relaunch” for the Clinton brand, which could come across as self-interested.

They say sticking to supporting the progressive resistance and lending her voice to the chorus that’s mostly being led by Sanders (I-Vt.), Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) might be a better way for Clinton to use her natural platform to guide the party.

Clinton certainly seems aware of her platform. “I’m not going anywhere,” she promised at the Code Conference.

Illusions of The Mighty, By G Squared.

Manchester bombingsThere is more to the bombings in Manchester and Kabul, at the onset of Ramadan.

As there is more to The Cholera in Yemen. And as there is more to the onging destruction of American history (de-Christianising, protecting the guilty, Confederacy and Slavery).

The steady diet of rewrites of foreign history and American Supremacy. The deceptions of the destroyed American educational system. MSM has taken its addicted to the ends of the limbs; from where it can never return.

America no longer exists. It died in Eastern Europe in 2014, as I wrote. Beyond that, it’s all an illusion. The English Empire died in Western Europe in 2014.

Trump was the only choice. If the insane one had prevailed, wars devastating America would have raged, leaving a bankrupt, vanquished and devastated homeland beyond that seen in The American Depression. Canada would have needed a border wall to protect itself from everything south to Tierra del Fuego.

—————————————————————————

When Ma Clinton was recently (May 2017) comparing Trump to Nixon, she forgot to tell her diminishing admirers that she was kicked off The Watergate Commission. A real accomplishment.

The fact that Bubba was impeached, with a Senate delay to allow him to walk at the end of his disastrous term, has also been forgotten.

As is the fact that his file at Oxford was marked NDG (no degree granted). Violent serial rape, is apparently not a degree course at Oxford. The Eileen Wellstone Affair of 1969. He was told to leave Oxford and that he would not be permitted to return.

Expelling Rhodians is not kosher. Albeit The Rogues is a political throw away and not granted for academic excellence (Hawke, Abbott, Turnbull, Clinton). And of course The Nobel Peace Prize is hardly for what is generally believed (Kissinger, Obama, Gore).

Bill Clinton was issued an honourary throw away doctorate in June 1994. Webster Hubbell’s daughter, Chelsea, was enrolled at University College Oxford, from which Bubba was asked to leave.

Bubba’s file was sanitised and infers he was there from 1968 to 1970. Which contradicts the other lie, that he was absent from Oxford, while he was protesting The Vietnam Draft. Both Clinton and GWB dodged military service. Both were fervent warmongers during their presidencies.

Fred Butler; Lord Butler of Brockwell, former Cabinet Secretary under Thatcher, Major, and , Blair, and Master of University College Oxford, advised that ‘The College was pleased to extend the link with The Clinton Family’.

And upon the further recommendations of British and American advisors, The University implemented ‘security measures’, and other students were advised not to discuss her with the press.

The inordinate costs to protect the coddled and valuable one directly and indirectly, courtesy of The American Government, and payoffs to mommy and step-daddy. And of course Chelsea’s ‘interfaith’ marriage to the Clinton Foundation employed fraudster, Marc Mezvinsky in 2010 was paid for by ‘supporters’ of The Clintons.

Marc’s great ‘Fund’ hit the inevitable reality curve towards the end of 2016. Momma would have bailed it out Big Time if so many Americans hadn’t voted against her, the multi-voting and box stuffing frauds had not been interferred with, and The GHWB-CIA faction had not been interrupted, for the first time since 4/11/1980.

Chelsea completed an Oxford doctorate ‘programme’ between 2001 and 2014. Primarily from home in New York. She was a legend at Stanford between 1997 and 2001 for her undergrad BA. Honours; of course. And no formal entry required at Oxford. The theses indicate serious collusion and predictable content.

Her wiki file, ’employments’, and the boards on which she allegedly sits; are in the grand art form of concocted public relations.

At Stanford there was the bullet proof glass everywhere, the security cameras, even in hallways, and the de rigueur plain clothes Secret Service army. The latter actually filling the dorms where ordinary students would have been. Even as a student her wardrobe was by Donatella Versace.

How the one percent really live. Hardly representing the average working classes.

But of course, The Super Elites are just 1% of that 1%. Generations deep, and hardly the celebrities the herds would know.

Obama jaunted about recently, parallel to Trump’s grand tour. He being the absolute presidential travel master during his disastrous term.

Why Obama was following Trump is somewhat confused. He might still think he’s President. He and the great Michelle used a private jet with fighter aircraft escort. They stayed in $15,000 a night suites. And the  large entourage and Secret Service army, also needed housing and feeding.

Everything courtesy of The American Taxpayer until they have both gone to their reward. His benfits pass to her on his demise. Enough to feed Obamas for generations to come. What a legacy.

He wasn’t getting the same receptions as The Don. And the yummy petite Michelle had naughties printed about her when she ponced into the ancient Duomo di Siena Catholic Cathedral in Tuscany with her closet Mohamadan partner. Michelle had a somewhat wardrobe malfunction.

You can take the girl out of the ‘village’; but you can’t take the ……….

They proclaiming; Trinity United Church of Christ converts from United Methodist, then ‘resigned’ over The Jeremiah Wright Affair. The ‘Background’ is good. No wonder Obama jumped.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeremiah_Wright_controversy

He was paid $400,000 each for two talks in America, then trotted to Italy to be paid $3,000,000 for one speech. Hillary was paid $675,000 to give three speeches at Goldmans fun fests.

They have nothing to say. And certainly nothing to read. But then, I never employed them as lackeys. And from the other perspective, empty vessels make the loudest noises.

Obama had Goldmans advisors work him through his Sequesters and Sanctions. His Stimuli were Fed scripts. In effect from the same shop.

When The British Prime Minister appoints the senior ranks of The Church of England; they are given a list of one name. Similarly, when The American President appoints the chairperson of The Federal Reserve System, he is given a list of one name.

When Ben Bernanke moved on (3/2/2014) to The Brookings Institute (where faithful and obedient retire. Gillard resides there) he was replaced as Fed Chairperson by the intellectualised token Janet Yellen. The clueless Elizabeth Coleman remaining as Inspector General (Alan Grayson Congressional questioning).

The real control now residing with Stanley Fischer; as Vice Chairman (16/6/2014). Bernanke was one of Fischer’s doctoral students. Fischer practices The New Keynesian School. Which means; Government Deficit Spending is the logic.

He was Chief Economist at The World Bank (1988-1990), First Managing Director of The IMF (1994-2001), and Governor of The Bank of Israel (2005-2013). Israel’s Central Bank. He holds the mandatory Israeli-American dual citizenship. He is a quality tested Rothschild operative.

America is to be debt – and – conflict driven to oblivion if Trump cannot control The Fed, The International Banks, The Washington Establishment, The American MSM, and the insanities derived from there. Apart from reforming Tax and Regulation, reinstating The Constitution, extricating from Foreign Wars of Aggression, securing a legitimate monetised currency, introducing a genuine electoral system, and reigning in rogue elements, as The American Intel Community.

Unless he maintains his current position and extends that by removing RINOs, Liberals and Hawks from Congress, and extending comfortable majorities in both houses, the prospects of a workable America with a future are not good.

Trump is ‘owned’ by the international banks. He could not exist without them. He has three well hidden senior Goldmans advisors in his face.

When Marcos’ American assets were stolen by The American Government, the 40 Wall Street was given to Trump for $1 million plus hand outs. At the time it was worth about $40 million.

Kushner lives at 666 Fifth Avenue; bought by Kushner Properties in 2007 for $1.8 billion. A 41 storey building opposite The Rockefeller Centre. Citigroup is the largest tenant.

In 2008, a section of the property was sold to The Stanley Chera Group for $525 million. In March 2017; Anbang Insurance Group (China)offered $1.6 billion for the remaining office areas and $1.25 billion for the remaining retail areas. A total value of $3.375 billion for the leveraged purchase of $1.8 billion, a decade before.

Those dealings being discussed as ‘Unusually favourable’. It also included a retirement of a Kushner debt in the order of $340 million to Vornado Realty Trust.

But also, in March 2017, The Zaha Hadid Group offered $12 billion for the property. A new 1,400 ft. construction, with a name change to 660 Fifth Avenue, to be undertaken.

Kushner was already working ahead in Saudi Arabia and Israel before the boss arrived.

All this while young Jared gives an excellent rendition of an apprentice, wife Ivanka is in training to be the first female president in 2032, Flynn is vilified for taking Russian lunch money in 2015, Judges are protecting illegals, The Senate plays games with votes on health and appropriations, The GOP is fractured by RINOs, Hawks, and Liberals, California is running out of water, environmental imbeciles have invaded the narrative, idiotic manufactured wars are raging, bad politically motivated intel is delivered as legitimate, The MSM raves concoctions without end, public servants lie under oath and refuse to honour subpoenas, and idiot brigades are searching for illusions of Russian interventions in their elections and attempting to impeach Trump for collusion by associates talking to Russians and foreigners renting rooms in his hotels.

Over the end of 1995 and beginning of 1996, Bill Clinton ran out of money, and The American Federal Government closed down. The Fed was demonstrating its might.

Various pieces of legislation between 2011 and 2013 brought about Obama’s sequestration waffles, about a need for Americans to tighten their belts, (The Goldmans invented Sequester). He allegedly foregoing some of his salary.

Part of the nonsense was a smoke screen to cut back the vanquished and over sized military machine. Jade Helm was a subsequent part of that About which I had written at the time. Controlled Alternative ran even with MSM for the inventiveness of stupidities concerning Jade Helm.

Ma Clinton demonstrated astonishing control at The Al Smith Dinner in New York on 20/10/2016; as Trump hinted at her extensive baggage. There was a hope that she would spin into one of her toxic spasms. Unfortunately she It was probably past her sleepy time.

Laser Weapons Edge Closer To Battlefield Use

Published: May 29, 2017

Three months after China unveiled “Silent Hunter” – its vehicle-slicing laser weapon, Stars & Stripes reports that US military forces are testing their own array of hi-tech weaponry.

The Silent Hunter laser is powerful enough to cut through light vehicle armor at up to a kilometer away, making you wonder if China already has more powerful laser weapons only for domestic use. And now Military.com reports, the toy-like drones destroyed during an Army field exercise at Fort Sill, Okla., last month weren’t anything special; however, the way they were brought down — zapped out of the sky by lasers mounted on a Stryker armored vehicle — might grab people’s attention.

The first soldier to try out the lasers was Spc. Brandon Sallaway, a forward observer with the 4th Infantry Division. He used a Mobile Expeditionary High Energy Laser to shoot down an 18-by-10-inch drone at 650 yards, an Army statement said.

“It’s nothing too complicated but you have to learn how to operate each system and get used to the controls which is exactly like a video game controller,” said Sallaway, who hadn’t fired a laser before the exercise.

The drone-killing laser was relatively low energy — only 5 kilowatts — but the Army has tested much more powerful weapons. A 30-kilowatt truck-mounted High Energy Laser Mobile Demonstrator shot down dozens of mortar rounds and several drones in November 2013 at White Sands Missile Range, N.M.

Lockheed Martin’s 30-kilowatt Accelerated Laser Demonstration Initiative, known as ALADIN.

Since then, researchers have made rapid advances in laser weapons, said Bob Ruszkowski, who works on air dominance projects and unmanned systems in Lockheed’s secretive Skunk Works facility.

“We’re really on the cusp of seeing the introduction of lasers in future systems,” he said.

The weapon tested at White Sands is about to double in power with a 60-kilowatt laser the Army plans to test in the next 18 months, he said in a phone interview May 12.

The laser generates its beam through fiber optic cables like those used by telecom companies, said Robert Afzal, a senior fellow for laser and sensor systems at Lockheed.

“We demonstrated that we could combine large number of these fiber lasers and link them to a weapons system,” he said.

Lasers are very efficient at converting electrical power to a laser beam, Afzal said.

That’s important for the platforms that carry them, he said. It means they don’t need a large generator or cooling system and that high-powered lasers can be easily transported.

“This was the key puzzle piece that needed to be solved before we could begin to deploy these laser weapons,” Afzal said. “The technology is getting real. It’s the dawn of a new era where the tech can be made smaller and powerful enough to be put on vehicles, ships and aircraft.”

Scientists showed the potential of more powerful laser weapons in 2015 by burning a hole through a truck’s hood at a range of one mile.

“It was the most efficient high-powered laser ever demonstrated,” Afazal said of the test, which mimicked what might happen if a laser was fired at a vehicle from an aircraft.

During an operation, a laser might be used to disable a vehicle where the goal was to capture rather than kill an individual, Ruszkowski said.

“The laser is a surgical weapon and it’s something customers are interested in,” Afazal said. “Something like that can be easily integrated into an AC-130 gunship. That is something the Air Force is planning on demonstrating in the next two to three years.”

Researchers believe they have the key ingredients to make such a system work, Ruszkowski said.

“When we realized that laser technology was maturing enough that we could be close to having something we could integrate on an aircraft we started looking at other difficulties that might arise,” he said.

Airflow around a plane can destabilize lasers, so engineers developed a way to minimize turbulence, said Ruszkowski, who added that the Navy has deployed a laser weapon on board the USS Ponce in the Persian Gulf.

Laser weapons could be arriving just in time to defeat a growing menagerie of cheap-to-make drones and missiles in the hands of terrorists and rogue states, which could threaten expensive American military hardware.

“The threats are proliferating and changing,” but laser weapons could counter some of them, Afazal said.

An advantage of laser weapons is that they don’t need ammunition, he said. For example, a forward-operating base could protect itself from airborne threats with a laser as long as there was enough fuel to power a generator and recharge its batteries.

Use of such weapons on enemy troops is a gray area that, for now, the U.S. military is steering clear of since international agreements ban the use of weapons intended to blind, Afazal said.

“Before lasers have been deployed and we understand how they work, the policy is conservative,” he said.

Laser Weapons Edge Closer to Battlefield Use

Zbigniew Brzezinski Passes Away At 89

Zbigniew Brzezinski, the hawkish strategic theorist who was national security adviser to President Jimmy Carter in the tumultuous years of the Iran hostage crisis and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in the late 1970s, died on Friday at a hospital in Virginia. He was 89.

His death, at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, was announced on Friday by his daughter, Mika Brzezinski, a co-host of the MSNBC program “Morning Joe.”

Like his predecessor Henry A. Kissinger, Mr. Brzezinski was a foreign-born scholar (he in Poland, Mr. Kissinger in Germany) with considerable influence in global affairs, both before and long after his official tour of duty in the White House. In essays, interviews and television appearances over the decades, he cast a sharp eye on six successive administrations, including that of Donald J. Trump, whose election he did not support and whose foreign policy, he found, lacked coherence.

Mr. Brzezinski was nominally a Democrat, with views that led him to speak out, for example, against the “greed,” as he put it, of an American system that compounded inequality. He was one of the few foreign policy experts to warn against the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

But in at least one respect — his rigid hatred of the Soviet Union — he had stood to the right of many Republicans, including Mr. Kissinger and President Richard M. Nixon. And during his four years under Mr. Carter, beginning in 1977, thwarting Soviet expansionism at any cost guided much of American foreign policy, for better or worse.

He supported billions in military aid for Islamic militants fighting invading Soviet troops in Afghanistan. He tacitly encouraged China to continue backing the murderous regime of Pol Pot in Cambodia, lest the Soviet-backed Vietnamese take over that country.

He managed to delay implementation of the  SALT II arms treaty in 1979 by raising objections to Soviet behavior in Vietnam, Africa and Cuba; and when the Soviets went into Afghanistan late that year, “SALT disappeared from the U.S.-Soviet agenda,” as he noted in a memoir four years later.

Mr. Brzezinski, a descendant of Polish aristocrats (his name is pronounced Z-BIG-nyehv breh-ZHIHN-skee), was a severe, even intimidating figure, with penetrating eyes and a strong Polish accent. Washington quickly learned that he had sharp elbows as well. He was adept at seizing the spotlight and freezing out the official spokesman on foreign policy, Secretary of State Cyrus R. Vance, provoking conflicts that ultimately led to Mr. Vance’s resignation.

Where Mr. Vance had endorsed the Nixon-Kissinger policy of a “triangular” power balance among the United States, China and the Soviet Union, Mr. Brzezinski scorned such “acrobatics,” as he called them. He advocated instead what he called a deliberate “strategic deterioration” in relations with Moscow, and closer ties to China.

Moving Fast

By his own account, he blitzed Mr. Carter with memos until he got permission to go to Beijing in May 1978, over State Department resistance, to begin talks that would lead to full diplomatic relations seven months later. Immediately after the trip, he appeared on “Meet the Press,” unleashing a slashing attack on the Soviet Union that Mr. Vance deplored as “loose talk.”

Mr. Brzezinski was also a prime mover behind the commando mission sent to rescue the American hostages held by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini’s revolutionary forces in Iran after the overthrow of the shah of Iran, Mohammed Reza Pahlavi — a disastrous desert expedition in April 1980 that claimed eight lives and never reached Tehran. Mr. Vance had not been informed of the mission until a few days before. It was the final straw: He quit, “stunned and angry,” he said.

Mr. Brzezinski’s rationale for the rescue attempt was, perhaps inevitably, rooted in his preoccupation with Soviet influence. He contended that trying to gain the release of the hostages through sanctions and other diplomatic measures “would deliver Iran to the Soviets,” although many thought that outcome highly improbable, given the fundamentalism of the clerics running the country. Besides, he said, success would “give the United States a shot in the arm, which it has badly needed for 20 years,” a reference to the quagmire of the Vietnam War.

Soviet aggression in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America was by no means a figment of Mr. Brzezinki’s imagination. But his strict adherence to ideas in which virtually every issue circled back to the threat of Soviet domination was remarkable even for those tense times, when many in the foreign policy establishment had come to regard détente — a general easing of the geopolitical tensions between the Soviet Union and the United States — as the best course.

In his scholarly certitude, Mr. Brzezinski sometimes showed a tendency to believe that any disagreement between theory and reality indicated some fault on the part of reality. In his 1962 book “Ideology and Power in Soviet Politics,” for example, he asserted that the Communist bloc “is not splitting and is not likely to split……

Rest here:

Another NWO crony passes. His legacy continues with his son who works for the nefarious NSA military-industrial “consultants” Booz Allen Hamilton:

Manchester, Berlin, Paris, Nice, London, New York: Passports and IDs Mysteriously Discovered in the Wake of Terror Attacks

Found this interesting as I’ve always been sceptical of the whole “we found his passport at the scene” routine, for obvious reasons. I’ll let the article do the talking:
Global Research, May 27, 2017

This article reviews the “mysterious” phenomenon of IDs and Passports of terror suspects routinely discovered (often in the rubble) in the wake of a terrorist attack.

In most cases the alleged suspect was known to the authorities.

Is there a pattern?  The ID papers of the suspect are often left behind, discovered by police in the wake of a terrorist attack.

According to government and media reports, the suspects are without exception linked to an Al Qaeda affiliated entity.   

None of these terror suspects survived. Dead men do not talk. 

In the case of the tragic events in Manchester, the bankcard of the alleged suicide bomber Salman Abedi was found in his pocket in the wake of the explosion. 

Legitimacy of the official stories? The UK is both a “victim of terrorism” as well as a “State sponsor of terrorism”. Without exception, the governments of  Western countries which are victims of terror attacks, have supported, directly or indirectly, the Al Qaeda group of terrorist organizations including the Islamic State (ISIS), which are allegedly responsible for waging these terror attacks. Amply documented Al Qaeda is a creation of the CIA. 

Below is a review of the circumstances and evidence pertaining to passports and IDs discovered in the wake of selected terror attacks, with links to Global Research articles and media reports (2001-2017). (This list is by no means exhaustive)

Ironically, the suspect Abedi was first identified by Washington rather than UK police and security. How did they know who was the culprit 3 hours after the explosion? According to Graham Vanbergen:

In the early hours of the morning of the 23rd May – approximately 02.35BST   NDTV via the Washington Post stated quite categorically that:

“U.S. officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, identified the assailant as Salman Abedi. They did not provide information about his age or nationality, and British officials declined to comment on the suspect’s identity.

This was published at a time when British police and security services were refusing to make any statements as to who they thought the perpetrators were because at the time, they were dealing with the immediate aftermath of the event.

Nice, 14th of July Massacre: Towards Martial Law? The Islamic State (ISIS-Daesh) Claims Responsibility?

By Peter Koenig, July 15, 2016

According to Peter Koenig in relation to the Nice terror attack:

During last night’s celebration of the French National Holiday, around 11 PM, a speeding truck plowed into a crowd of thousands who were watching the fireworks along the Mediterranean Boulevard Anglais. The driver of the truck, was simultaneously and  indiscriminately shooting into the crowd. He was able to run for 2 kilometers before being stopped by police, which instantly shot and killed him.

A horrendous terror attack, killing hordes of people, spreading pain, misery, fear and outrage in France, Europe – the world over.All indications signal the Big Script of yet another false flag; yet again in France.

The young truck-driver was identified as a 31-year-old Frenchman, resident of Nizza, with Tunisian origins. As in previous cases, ‘coincidence’ has it that his identity papers were found in the truck.

The young man is instantly killed by the police. Dead people cannot talk. A pattern well known by now.

The Paris Terror Attacks and 911: Similar “Evidence” Makes it Suspicious

By Timothy Alexander Guzman, November 20, 2015 

The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) declared that it was responsible for the latest attacks in Paris as did Al-Qaeda who also claimed responsibility for 911. … However, there are similarities between the terror attacks in Paris and New York City on September 11th.

First, Syrian and Egyptian passports from two of the suicide bombers were found at the scene of the stadium attack in the northern part of the city. After both suspected terrorists detonated their explosive devices, their passports were still found.

This brings us back to the September 11th terror attacks where U.S. officials recovered a passport intact a few blocks from t
he World Trade Center
which did belong to one of the hijackers,

In the context of the enquiry about the Paris massacres, a Syrian passport (image right) was found next to one of the kamikaze bombers of Stade de France. After being pointed out as responsible for the attacks by President Hollande, ‘the Islamic State’ claimed that they had engineered the onslaught. The French executive, that had already stated tht they wanted to take action in Syria allegedly against ISIS, but actually against Bachar El Assad, who ‘has to go’, sees in this a significant clue that comfort their military expedition.

London 7/7 Terror attack, July 7, 200

On Tuesday, July 12th, Lindsay’s wife Samantha Lewthwaite had called police to report her husband Germaine (“Jamal”) missing.  Police searched their home immediately. The next day, on July 14th, police announced that they had Lindsay’s ID and he was the fourth bomber. Lewthwaite was incredulous and refused to believe the accusation without DNA proof.  The police identification was stunning because they had been claiming that all of the suspects looked Pakistani; there was no way anyone could mistake the big, black Lindsay for an Asian. What had police been looking at?

In the official version for 9/11 the FBI claimed that they found the unscathed passport of one of the pilots near one of the towers that were reduced to ashes by explosions whose heat melted even the steel columns in the buildings’ structure. The fourth plane’s crash near Shanksville also yielded a passport which, though scorched, still made it possible to read the person’s first name and surname and to see his ID photo. This is all the more disturbing as nothing at all was left in the crater, no part of the plane or of the people travelling in it, only this partly scorched passport.

Confirmed by Dan Rather CBS News, “a passerby found the passport of one of the hijackers” on the street just hours after the 9/11 attacks. (Video at 1′.23″)

According to Who What Why:

The Visa of Satam al-Suqami: This identify document of one of the alleged 9/11 hijackers somehow survived unscathed a few blocks from the twin towers, though the plane itself was virtually obliterated.

The Passports belonging to Ziad Jarrah and Saeed al-Ghamdi: The passports of two alleged hijackers of United Airlines Flight 93 supposedly survived the fiery crash in Pennsylvania that left the aircraft itself charred and widely scattered—with one passport entirely intact.

Food for thought?

Can we believe the official narrative of HM government?

No questions asked. Can we believe the Western media?

So if you are voicing your objections about three months of Trump, I’m sorry but we can’t hear you over the deafening silence still echoing in our ears!!!  A quote from Senator Barry Goldwater. In his biography  entitled “Goldwater”..the late Arizona Senator said…“I believe the media should live by a more honorable code. They should publicly apologize for  errors that reflect adversely on anyone, explain how or why they made the  error, and offer that retraction in a position of equal prominence in the  print media or the same slot for radio and television. They should be forced to live by the same accountability as do all public services.”

 

Peace through mutual blackmail: is that what’s happening in Washington? By Jon Rappoport

Peace through mutual blackmail: is that what’s happening in Washington?

by Jon Rappoport

May 25, 2017

In the last few days, the campaign to impeach Donald Trump has quieted down. We’ll see what happens; but is this breathing space and pause the result of a stalemate? Do both sides have “control files” on each other? Is the underlying proposition, “I won’t spill your secrets if you won’t spill mine”?

I now refer to an article about Trump and his enemies that has been circulating online. I don’t know who the author is. His views and opinions make an interesting circumstantial case. Here is an excerpt:

“James Comey is a poisonous snake of the highest order… a deep-water Swamp Denizen who has been highly paid to deliberately provide cover for high-level corruption by the Clintons and Obama. He is has been central to trying to destroy the Trump campaign and then the Trump administration from the start. He is as dirty as they come in DC. He had highest-level cover (the FBI no less) and was deep into an effort to eliminate Trump. Trump had to move hard, fast, and at exactly the right time to cut the head off the snake without getting bitten by the snake or being finished by the other swamp denizens.”

“Begin by noticing how the President fired Comey when Comey was 3,000 miles away from his office, that Comey had no inkling he was being cut, that all his files, computers, and everything in his office were seized by his boss Sessions and the justice department. This was not a violation of protocol, it was tactical. Notice how Prez Trump compartmentalized the strike and did not inform any of his White House ‘staff’ to prevent leaks. Notice how he emasculated Comey and the swamp denizens by letting them know in a tweet that the Attorney General got information (surveillance ‘tapes’ from the seizure of Comey’s office) to let Comey and his handlers know that Trump’s DOJ has the goods on them. This was a brilliant, strategic and totally imperative move at exactly the right time against horrible, evil and corrupt powers infesting our government.”

“The swamp is on notice that the President is on to them, they are sweating bullets because their criminal games of corruption are being pursued and they know it. They are screaming and ranting because they are desperate denizens of the swamp who are beginning to realize they are roadkill.”

The article goes on to describe the purported depths of Comey’s corrupt connections to the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation, as their agent.

In the author’s view, Trump and Attorney General Sessions have the goods on the Clintons now, and also have damning evidence of crimes committed by other key players in the DC swamp.

There is another possibility.

Given Donald Trump’s history as a real estate hustler from way back, his acrobatic financial dealings with money men, his projects’ bankruptcies, his celebrity status, his impulsive proclivities, his extraordinary self-promotion, it’s obvious his enemies have compiled a “control file” on him. They have the sort of information they believe they can use as serious blackmail.

In that case, we could now be looking at a stalemate of sorts. Both sides have the goods on each other.

This is no guarantee of a permanent peace based on Mutually Assured Destruction; but MAD could form the basis of a truce. And the truce could extend into the future.

“I have your secrets, you have mine. Now let’s do business.”

Of course, we have to remember that Washington is a tinderbox at all times. It’s a dry forest waiting for a match to be struck and a spark to fly.

We will see whether Trump drains the swamp, the swamp drains him, or nobody drains anybody.

The present war in Washington isn’t for the faint of heart, or the nice people who want everybody to get along, or the suburbanites who want all participants to be awarded trophies. Washington is Crime Central and the knives are out in full view. It’s a fashion parade in the devil’s cave. To paraphrase Harry Truman, if you can’t stand the overflowing toilets, get out of the bathroom.

Washington is a land of insanity, psychosis, spying, panic, and excrement-throwing.

When you try to connect the dots, you see they have blood and lies and hatred and coup-plotting and impeachment and even the ghost of David Rockefeller embedded in them, as opening and closing little clams and sharks and crawling worms and blobs of unidentifiable species try to take Donald Trump down. And he, of course, wants to take them down…

It would be no surprise if the people who hold each other’s secrets are staring at a “nuclear freeze” pact on the bargaining table: “you can’t blow me up without me blowing you up.”

Also consider players within the US intelligence community. Both the CIA and NSA have been spying on officials in Washington and other prominent Americans for a long time. These agencies hold secrets as well.

And then there is the organization whose members and alumni Trump has surrounded himself with:

Goldman Sachs. Through his key appointees from the “vampire squid” firm, Trump is working an audacious angle. He knows that if the stock market takes a long and horrendous dive, the pressure on him is going to be enormous. The “business community” will blame him. The media will claim the economy is collapsing under his watch. Goldman can make many moves to keep the stock market up. What does the firm want in return? That’s the magic question. Threats of war, and war, in order to keep contract money flowing to the military industrial complex? Special and undetectable favors? Protection from prosecution for ongoing financial crimes? And what does Goldman Sachs know about Trump? What would they be willing to reveal, if he backs away from any part of the agreement he has struck with them?

The mutually assured destruction pact has more than two sides. Holding together a multi-faceted truce isn’t the easiest job in the world.

Everyone involved has something to gain and something to lose. Calculating upside vs. downside is a delicate proposition.

And, in the midst of this, crazy people can show up who go off on the spur of the moment. They blow their corks, and all bets are off.

For now, cooler heads are prevailing.

For now.

Blackmail, extortion. It’s not the only game in town, but it’s the big one. It lurks around every corner, it sits in every conference room, it weaves its way through legislation, policy, and judicial decision.

It’s the other branch of Government.
