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.

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.

CIA Plane Lands In Wellington Ahead Of “Five Eyes” Meeting: More To This Than Meets The “Eyes”?

“Due to specific security requirements we cannot comment further at this time. However, as police have pointed out they are not aware of a visit to Queenstown by a current or former head of state.”

A spokesman for Prime Minister Bill English

Seen the planes and police presence at Harewood Christchurch base a few days back, now it’s shaping up to be an all-star gathering. Right on cue for the big nuclear simulation exercise stateside. I repeat what I’ve already said, that NZ is a prime Elite bolt hole. Is there more to this than just another spy convention? While there is “no confirmation” of any dignitaries outside the spy business coming here, I’m still suspicious. Considering the powder keg geopolitical situation, they could be fleeing the crime scene in preparation for the shit hitting the fan. Just speculation, but it pays to stay alert. Here’s the mainstream report:
An aircraft believed to belong to the CIA landed in Wellington on Saturday morning (file pic).

An aircraft believed to belong to the CIA landed in Wellington on Saturday morning (file pic).

Secret agents from one of the most powerful spy agencies in the world may have just touched down in the capital.

What looks to be just another private jet parked at Wellington Airport may in fact be carrying a plane-load of spies who are said to be in the country for a secret meeting in Queenstown.

The tail number – five small, black digits on the back of the plane – reveals the private jet belongs to none other than the United States’ Central Intelligence Agency, also known as the CIA.

The aircraft's arrival ties in with a top-secret meeting of the Five Eyes nations in Queenstown.

The aircraft’s arrival ties in with a top-secret meeting of the Five Eyes nations in Queenstown.

The plane, with the registration number 10030, was spotted at Wellington Airport on Saturday morning, NewsHub reports.

The aircraft’s arrival ties in with an event in Queenstown, where a top-secret meeting of the Five Eyes nations is being held.

Five Eyes is the name of the global spying alliance of the US, the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Officials from the world’s largest spy network are meeting in Arrowtown, near Queenstown, where a massive security operation is underway.

Government officials are refusing to confirm details or provide names, but police confirmed no former head of state would be visiting, after the rumour mill tipped the visitor could be Barack Obama, with Microsoft founder Bill Gates’ name also put into the mix.

Total Chaos: Cyber Attack Fears As MULTIPLE CITIES HIT With Simultaneous Power Grid Failures: Shockwave Of Delays In San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York

Total Chaos: Cyber Attack Fears As MULTIPLE CITIES HIT With Simultaneous Power Grid Failures: Shockwave Of Delays In San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York

The U.S. power grid appears to have been hit with multiple power outages affecting San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles.

Officials report that business, traffic and day-to-day life has come to a standstill in San Francisco, reportedly the worst hit of the three major cities currently experiencing outages.

Power companies in all three regions have yet to elaborate on the cause, though a fire at a substation was the original reason given by San Francisco officials.

A series of subsequent power outages in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City left commuters stranded and traffic backed up on Friday morning. Although the outages occurred around the same time, there is as of yet no evidence that they were connected by anything more than coincidence.

The first outage occurred at around 7:20 a.m. in New York, when the power went down at the 7th Avenue and 53rd Street subway station, which sent a shockwave of significant delays out from the hub and into the rest of the subway system. By 11:30 a.m. the city’s MTA confirmed that generators were running again in the station, although the New York subways were set to run delayed into the afternoon.

Later in the morning, power outages were reported in Los Angeles International Airport, as well as in several other areas around the city.

The San Francisco Fire Department was responding to more than 100 calls for service in the Financial District and beyond, including 20 elevators with people stuck inside, but reported no immediate injuries. Everywhere, sirens blared as engines maneuvered along streets jammed with traffic.

Traffic lights were out at scores of intersections, and cars were backing up on downtown streets as drivers grew frustrated and honked at each other.

Via: SF Gate

The cause of the outage has not yet been made clear, though given the current geo-political climate it is not out of the question to suggest a cyber attack could be to blame. It has also been suggested that the current outages could be the result of a secretive nuclear/EMP drill by the federal government.

As we have previously reported, the entire national power grid has been mapped by adversaries of the United States and it is believed that sleep trojans or malware may exist within the computer systems that maintain the grid.

In a 2016 report it was noted that our entire way of life has been left vulnerable to saboteurs who could cause cascading blackouts across the United States for days or weeks at a time:

It isn’t just EMPs and natural disaster that poses a threat to the grid, but there is also the potential for attacks on individual power substations in the vast network of decentralized and largely unguarded power grid chain. A U.S. government study established that there would be “major, extended blackouts if more than three key substations were destroyed.”

Whether by criminals, looters, terrorists, gangs or pranksters, it would take very little to bring down the present system, and there is currently very little the system can do to protect against this wide open threat.

Whether the current outages are the result of a targeted infrastructure cyber attack or simply a coincidence, most Americans think the impossible can’t happen, as The Prepper’s Blueprint author Tess Pennington highlights, a grid-down scenario won’t just be a minor inconvenience if it goes on for more than a day or two:

Consider, for a moment, how drastically your life would change without the continuous flow of energy the grid delivers. While manageable during a short-term disaster, losing access to the following critical elements of our just-in-time society would wreak havoc on the system.

  • Challenges or shut downs of business commerce
  • Breakdown of our basic infrastructure: communications, mass transportation, supply chains
  • Inability to access money via atm machines
  • Payroll service interruptions
  • Interruptions in public facilities – schools, workplaces may close, and public gatherings.
  • Inability to have access to clean drinking water

Full report: When the Grid Goes Down, You Better Be Ready!

It is for this reason that we have long encouraged Americans to prepare for this potentially devastating scenario by considering emergency food reserves, clean water reserves and even home defense strategies in the event of a widespread outage.

The majority of Americans have about 3 days worth of food in their pantry.

Imagine for a moment what Day 4 might look like in any major city that goes dark.

This exclusive clip from American Blackout shows what an extended outage might look like:

Prepare for the worst, because this is one scenario you do not want to face.

Assange Arrest A Priority Says US

David Smith in Washington
Julian Assange’s lawyer said he had not been told anything about charges against his client.

The arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is now a “priority” for the US, attorney general Jeff Sessions has said.

Hours later it was reported by CNN that authorities have prepared charges against Assange, who is currently holed up at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

Donald Trump lavished praise on the anti-secrecy website during the presidential election campaign – “I love WikiLeaks,” he once told a rally – but his administration has struck a different tone.

Asked whether it was a priority for the justice department to arrest Assange “once and for all”, Sessions told a press conference in El Paso, Texas on Thursday: “We are going to step up our effort and already are stepping up our efforts on all leaks. This is a matter that’s gone beyond anything I’m aware of. We have professionals that have been in the security business of the United States for many years that are shocked by the number of leaks and some of them are quite serious.”

He added: “So yes, it is a priority. We’ve already begun to step up our efforts and whenever a case can be made, we will seek to put some people in jail.”

Citing unnamed officials, CNN reported that prosecutors have struggled with whether the Australian is protected from prosecution from the first amendment, but now believe they have found a path forward. A spokesman for the justice department declined to comment.

Barry Pollack, Assange’s lawyer, denied any knowledge of imminent prosecution. “We’ve had no communication with the Department of Justice and they have not indicated to me that they have brought any charges against Mr Assange,” he told CNN. “They’ve been unwilling to have any discussion at all, despite our repeated requests, that they let us know what Mr Assange’s status is in any pending investigations. There’s no reason why Wikileaks should be treated differently from any other publisher.”

US authorities has been investigating Assange and WikiLeaks since at least 2010 when it released, in cooperation with publications including the Guardian, more than a quarter of a million classified cables from US embassies leaked by US army whistleblower Chelsea Manning.

Republican politicians expressed fury at the time, accusing Assange of treason, and Trump himself told an interviewer: “I think it’s disgraceful, I think there should be like death penalty or something.”

All that changed during the election when WikiLeaks published emails acquired via Russian-backed hackers from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Trump and his associates seized on the revelations, citing them with relish during speeches, prompting accusations of cynical opportunism.

Now in power, their attitude seems to have reverted to Republican orthodoxy. In a speech last week in a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, CIA Director Mike Pompeo said: “It’s time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.”

He added: “Julian Assange has no first amendment freedoms. He’s sitting in an embassy in London. He’s not a US citizen.”

But US authorities cannot touch Assange while he remains in the Ecuadorian embassy in Britain, seeking to avoid an arrest warrant on rape allegations in Sweden. Socialist candidate Lenin Moreno, who won the recent election in Ecuador, has promised not to extradite Assange

 

What Nightmare Comes Next?

Interesting report from SGT expresses what many are no doubt feeling. Has Trump been swallowed by “The Swamp”? It seems to me that the Illuminated Elite are still in charge. Some presidents are members or willing accomplices, others reluctant or unwitting.  Whatever, it seems “the Plan” marches on regardless, inevitably towards the goal of a global New World Order in place by the year 2030.

US Bombed It’s Own Tunnels In Afghanistan!

WikiLeaks: The Afghan Tunnels the US Just Bombed — “They were built by the CIA”

As The Trump administration is flexing its military muscle, having stood up to Syria and its ally Russia, and while it’s now relishing in the news it has dropped the nation’s largest most-powerful non-nuclear bomb on a cave complex in Eastern Afghanistan, one critic was quick to point out one little-known fact. Wikileaks tweeted a simple but true statement concerning the origin of the cave complex the Americans are so proud to have reportedly destroyed. “Those tunnels the U.S is bombing in Afghanistan? They were built by the CIA,” Wikileaks tweeted.

Linked to the tweet was a New York Times article from 2005, which described a similar cave complex in detail, and added a few additional details worth noting. “Tora Bora” as it’s known, contains “fortified caves” which are reported to contain, “miles of tunnels, bunkers and base camps, dug deeply into the steep rock walls.” The tunnels were built by the “C.I.A.”, with the help of the Bin Laden family, who constructed the complex.

Also jumping in on the mockery of the Trump administration is Edward Snowden, who tweeted, “The bomb dropped today in the middle of nowhere, Afghanistan, cost $314,000,000.” And in a follow up tweet, also said, “Those mujahedeen tunnel networks we’re bombing in Afghanistan? We paid for them.” He, too, linked his tweet to The NY Times article mentioned above. Apparently, the ant farm network of tunnels built by the CIA can now be destroyed by the American military in yet another pseudo-show-of-force meant to make the Trump administration seem tough on Syria, ISIS, and Al Quaeda.

It was said Bin Laden even helped to run the bulldozers at Tora Bora and knew the labyrinth of tunnels like the proverbial back of his hand. Financed by the intelligence agency to provide a headquarters and safe haven for the Mujahedeen, the Afghani fighting force was used to prevent the Russian takeover of Afghanistan during the Afghan War. After the Russians were defeated, the same Mujahedeen became known as Al-Qaeda, led by Osama Bin Laden.

After the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, Bin Laden became the United States’ most wanted man. Not surprisingly, he took up refuge inside Tora Bora, within its miles and miles of complex, well-fortified tunnels. Times writer Mary Anne Weaver “asked Masood Farivar, a former Khalis officer who had fought in Tora Bora during the jihad, to tell me why the caves were so important. ‘They’re rugged, formidable and isolated,” he said.

“If you know them, you can come and go with ease. But if you don’t, they’re a labyrinth that you can’t penetrate. They rise in some places to 14,000 feet, and for 10 years the Soviets pummeled them with everything they had, but to absolutely no avail. Another reason they’re so important is their proximity to the border and to Pakistan.'”

One American military leader tasked with capturing or killing Bin Laden was General “Mad Dog” Maddox. Maddox is now the Trump Administration’s Secretary of Defense, and appears to have attempted to destroy at least a portion of Tora Bora’s system of tunnels with the drop of the MOAB bomb, known as the “Mother Of All Bombs.”

The aging general who’s now the nation’s most powerful military leader, with the exception of Trump as Commander-in-Chief, appears to be following through with a sixteen year old vendetta he may have been holding onto. The Times article from 2005 writes, “Brig. Gen. James N. Mattis…along with another officer with whom I spoke, was convinced that…he could have surrounded and sealed off bin Laden’s lair…He argued strongly that he should be permitted to proceed to the Tora Bora caves.”

However, according to Weaver, “The general was turned down,” and the decision not to take Bin Laden there at Tora Bora was one of the greatest military mistakes of the Bush Administration’s attempt to get him. Bin Laden escaped Tora Bora on December 16th, 2001.

Comment: Assuming Bin Laden was even at Tora Bora why would Bush and company want to kill or capture the greatest boogie man and military security complex boondoggle the US has ever seen?

It is also important to note that Wikileaks’ tweet may or may not be 100 percent accurate. CNN reported the MOAB bomb was dropped on a tunnel complex about 12 miles from Tora Bora. However, those tunnels likely all connected. CBS reported the airstrike destroyed several caves used by ISIS with it’s 11-ton ordinance. The news agency also interviewed a military expert who said the U.S. has at least 14 more MOAB missiles and may be prepared to lay waste to all such cave systems.

Meanwhile, on Thursday, the director of the CIA, Mike Pompeo, targeted Wikileaks as a “non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.”. The recently appointed director has apparently had enough of Wikileaks’ activities, such as the March release of the CIA’s Vault 7.

Comment: What a perfect metaphor for the US economy, we spend hundreds of millions of dollars building infrastructure for military forces we like – only to spend hundreds of millions of dollars later to destroy it when it becomes a “good story” to.

US fighter jets intercept Russian bombers near Alaska

The U.S. military dispatched two F-22 stealth fighters late Monday to intercept a pair of Russian bombers near Alaska, according to a Pentagon official.

The official told The Washington Examiner Tuesday the Air Force’s jets visually identified the Russian vehicles as TU-95 “Bear” long-range bombers.

The American jets briefly flew alongside the Russian bombers before the bombers changed course and flew away from the U.S.

The official noted that TU-95s are capable of carrying nuclear weapons, but the planes involved in Monday’s incident did not appear armed.

The interception was conducted in a “safe and professional” manner, the official added, as the bombers did not violate U.S. airspace or break international norms.

US fighter jets intercept Russian bombers near Alaska© Provided by The Hill US fighter jets intercept Russian bombers near Alaska Monday’s incident comes amid escalating tension between Russia and the U.S., particularly over Syria’s ongoing civil war.

President Trump ordered a missile strike on a Syrian airfield earlier this month after reports that forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad used chemical weapons.

Trump’s decision to strike Assad’s government earlier this month put the U.S. at odds with Russia, which has long supported Assad.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said last week that the chemical attack – which purportedly killed more than 80 Syrian civilians – was likely “staged.”

Lavrov added that another U.S. military strike in Syria could prompt “grave consequences not only for regional but global security.”

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said earlier this month that U.S.-Russia relations have hit “a low point” following the strike.

The top U.S. diplomat added that “improvement in the long-term relationship” between both nations is required to resolve the conflict in Syria.
