New York Times: Salman Abedi Met with “ISIS™” Says Secret Sources Providing Zero Evidence

Sat, 06/03/2017 - 05:39

by Scott Creighton

Last year Hillary Clinton’s campaign crumbled largely because of her extreme dishonesty, criminality and the machinations of those around her, specifically the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and John Podesta. Much of it was brought to light by federal and congressional investigations into her use of an illegal private server while she was Secretary of State, a move she made deliberately (not a “mistake”) to shield herself from future prosecution. But still more of the evidence that she was unfit to serve as president came from leaks from various unknown sources via DCLeaks, Wikileaks and other publications. In those cases, yes, the leakers or “sources” were unknown, but the evidence was laid out for all too see and not one of the leaked emails or documents were ever proven to have been falsified. In fact, few if any were ever even question by those parties associated with them.

Though the sources were anonymous, the evidence was rock solid and the damage was clear: the “most qualified candidate for the office of all time” lost her race to a bloviating reality TV star who had once been recorded as saying he liked grabbing women by their genitalia when he met them.

Today, it seems, our complicit media plays by a different set of rules:

According to them – Trump is Putin’s puppet, according to secret sources and evidence even reporters haven’t seen and Russia hacked the election, according to more secret sources who again, provided no evidence to back up the claim. The story of the James Comey memo lived it’s life for two weeks with an unknown source and never once even examined by the writers who reported on it.

Secret sources, secret evidence none of it is actually true and yet that’s good enough for congresswomen to screech their demands for Trump’s impeachment daily.

Back in 2002 and early 2003, the complicit media drove the country to war with Iraq based on lies provided to them by an administration determined to regime change the country so their friends in Big Business could profit from the chaos to follow. They said there were connections to al Qaeda, WMDs and efforts to buy Yellow Cake from Niger and we couldn’t allow the final evidence to show up in the form of a “mushroom cloud”

The press went with it full steam ahead. And back then, these lies were at least supported by so-called “evidence” provided by various “intelligence” sources. Faked documents, satellite images that had been misinterpreted, testimony from supposed named insiders… the lies were backed by something at least and in the end it was the exposure of the faked intel that did them in. Just ask Colin Powell if you can find him under whatever rock he’s hiding under these days.

Faked documents, outright lies and a war for profit that killed a million civilians to start with and still kills more and more to this day… and no impeachment for the administration that did it.

Today, we don’t need no stinking evidence apparently.

Just take the case of the New York Times’ June 3rd article on Manchester bombing patsy Salman Abedi and his new alleged connection with … “ISIS™”

“The bomber who killed 22 people at a pop concert in Manchester, England, last month had met in Libya with members of an Islamic State unit linked to the 2015 Paris terrorist attack, according to current and retired intelligence officials…”

“The content of the communications between the attacker, Salman Abedi, and the terrorist cell remain unknown…”

“… according to a retired European intelligence chief, who spoke on the condition of anonymity…”

“…confirmed by a senior United States intelligence official, who also spoke on the condition of anonymity.” New York Times

Their secret sources (who apparently wont stand by their intel) offer no evidence of this claim but apparently that’s just fine with the New York Times and their intrepid staff of “journalists”

Let’s just think about this for a minute.

In Manchester, according to the official story, 22 people lost their lives and another 100 or so were injured with a couple thousand more being traumatized for life. You would think the Times would pay very close attention to the developing story of the man accused of the attack on these people in an effort to make sure justice is done for all of those effected by this tragedy if not for the purpose of making sure yet another terrorism suspect isn’t railroaded by authorities like so many have been in the past right here in the States.

But no.

Instead the Times regurgitates WITHOUT QUESTION anything the Deep State tells them… almost as if their publication is merely an appendage of the intelligence industrial complex… which we all know it is.

Trump is a Putchurian candidate while Abedi is “ISIS™”. No evidence offered. None needed. Just the accusation is required for quilt to be assigned.

Kinda like the kangaroo courts they try terror suspects in these days, right?

I guess they did learn something from the run-up to the invasion of Iraq. The people of this country will literally believe anything, just so long as it comes from the New York Times.

John Judge Interview Videos

Fri, 06/02/2017 - 07:25

by Scott Creighton

“I tell people you can call me a conspiracy theorist if you call everyone else a coincidence theorist,” John P. Judge

Johnnie Favorite recommended I take a look at the work of John P. Judge, an independent researcher and activist for decades. John resume of resistance, real resistance, is long. Dates back to his teens really. His entire life was dedicated to exposing the inner workings of the Deep State and countering their endless barrage of propaganda.

“John Judge was a co-founder of 911 CitizensWatch, a grassroots watchdog group demanding transparency and a thorough investigation by the National Commission on Terrorist Acts Upon the United States. John was also a co-founder of Committee for an Open Archives, Coalition on Political Assassinations (COPA), and the Committee for High School Options and Information on Careers, Education and Self-Improvement (CHOICES), a group countering military recruitment in the schools and providing civilian alternatives. John was on the board of the Washington Peace Center and was an activist opposing war, racism and militarism since the 1960s. John was an independent researcher and lecturer on political assassinations, covert operations, hidden history, and the rise of fascism in America, and made himself available as a speaker for presentations, forums, and media interviews” Radical (dot) org

John passed away in 2014 at the age of 66. Cynthia McKinney wrote this about John in 2012. It’s high praise coming from someone with as much character as she has:

“… John Judge is a researcher: inside John’s brain is a compendium of government policies, programs, and actions that have profoundly affected the way our government works. Ignorance of what John researches impedes the fullest exercise possible of citizenship in this country. Every U.S. citizen should be aware of what John researches. But because John is not a Member of the academy, and does not publish in academic journals, John Judge is perhaps one of the most important unknown historians of our generation…” Cynthia McKinney

Cynthia says in the video below:

“Assassination takes place all the time. Political assassination. Character assassination. And worse. And in just one reading of the Cointelpro papers, you can see all the different forms of political assassinations they use” Cynthia McKinney

How true is that? How relevant is it today as the red-baiting New McCarthyites scream new “Trump is owned by Russia!!!” propaganda daily?

You can find a record of some of John Judge’s writings, here.

“I agree with Ishmael Reed who says in Mumbo Jumbo, “The real history of the world is a history of competing conspiracies.” John J. Judge

Remarkably, he was so influential as a researcher and “conspiracy theorist”, John garnered a sort of obituary in the Washington Post when he passed away.

“Through years of investigation and activism, Mr. Judge developed a devoted following in the community of skeptics who question official or commonly accepted narratives of the past. He co-founded and directed the Coalition on Political Assassinations, an organization whose activities include investigating the deaths in the 1960s of John Kennedy, his brother Robert F. Kennedy, civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. and black nationalist leader Malcolm X. News outlets, with some frequency, featured Mr. Judge and his work.

He turned his Washington home into a repository of thousands of volumes and documents on political assassinations and other matters, supporting himself over the decades through odd jobs and fundraising work. He was once described as a “professional conspiracist,” but he considered himself an “alternate historian,” according to his Web site, judgeforyourself.org.

“I tell people you can call me a conspiracy theorist if you call everyone else a coincidence theorist,” Mr. Judge quipped to the publication National Journal.” Washington Post

Unlike a lot of the so-called “alternative” researchers and activists out there today, John wasn’t former CIA or NSA or NASA or career military. In fact, he led a program to help young underprivileged kids find ways to plan their futures WITHOUT joining the army.

Why shoot Reagan? Because there are divisions within the class. Because the class is not monolithic. Because you ascend Bush into 6 terms.” John Judge

As far as I can tell, his life was dedicated to activism and research in pursuit of the better country and world so many of us envision.

“An avid public speaker, Judge never spoke about himself but rather, humbly retained a tireless devotion to the search for truth beyond the official government or mainstream media record. Until his final days, Judge was a seeker of truth and justice of the first order. He is irreplaceable in the annals of serious research and documentation.” Assassination of JFK

Below the fold there are 4 videos. The first three come from Assassination of JFK Youtube channel. The last is an open forum discussion with Cynthia McKinney.

Black-Hating Negroes and Their Uses: David Clarke at Homeland Security

Fri, 06/02/2017 - 06:35

by Glen Ford, BAR

David Clarke, the sheriff of Milwaukee County who appears slated for a top post at the Department of Homeland Security, has made himself valuable to the White Man’s Party through ostentatious display of hatred and contempt for his fellow Blacks. Clarke is the go-to Negro for denunciations of Black Lives Matter (“Black Lies Matter,” in his words) as Islamic State sympathizers who should be “scooped” up, charged with treason and detained “indefinitely at Gitmo.” Clarke shares his repugnant political specialty with a debased cast of domestic and international characters, including presidents Yoweri Museveni and Salva Kiir, of Uganda and South Sudan, respectively, and Roy Innis, the late former leader of CORE, the Congress of Racial Equality.

All three of the living professional Black-hating-Negroes make themselves readily identifiable as eager allies of American-style white supremacy by wearing huge black cowboy hats. Yoweri Museveni, Ronald Reagan’s favorite African since seizing power in Uganda in 1986, turned his country’s army into a central African military appendage of U.S. imperialism. Under Washington’s direction, Museveni incorporated minority Tutsis from neighboring Rwanda into his armed forces, then supported their 1990 invasion of Rwanda, which led to mass tribal slaughter and the overthrow of the majority Hutu government, followed by the invasion and occupation of the Democratic Republic of Congo by Rwandan Tutsi forces under Paul Kagame, resulting in the death of more than six million Congolese, and still counting. (Kagame should also wear a cowboy hat, but prefers the military beret.) As mercenaries of U.S. Empire, both Museveni and Kagame contribute troops to virtually every western-funded “peace keeping” operation on the continent…

The Significance of the Kathy Griffin Head-chopper Photo

Wed, 05/31/2017 - 07:31

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: CNN has fired her. 

Not being an expert in such matters I can only imagine that when you run an unconventional warfare campaign like the one being conducted against the current president of the United States by the Deep State, various mileposts signify the relative success or failure of the tactics you are employing to demonize said target. You evaluate these achievements as they occur in real time and structure the direction of the project accordingly.

That is my guess as to how the manipulators of psychological warfare campaigns operate. It is only a guess but one based on years of research into the outward projections of their craft.

Such a milepost was reached yesterday when Kathy Griffin, a former mediocre comedian turned reality TV star and perpetual host of various D-list network events, published this photo:

Needless too say, the image stirred up controversy which is exactly what Ms. Griffin wanted.

For those of you who don’t know, she won some award a couple years ago and took advantage of the network face-time to make disparaging comments about Jesus and religion knowing full well how offensive it would be, but being the eternal self-promoter and as vain-glorious as they come, Kathy understood bad press is better than no press. So she did it for the attention.

And let’s just make this clear as well: Kathy Griffin released this photo of her holding the severed head of the seated president for the same reason.

Unfortunately for Kathy, it was the wrong kind of attention and she’s already been fired from one company that used her in their advertising and I am sure more will follow. CNN is apparently thinking of terminating her contract with them for the New Year’s Eve coverage she does with the CIA’s guy, Anderson Cooper. She had several more years on that contract certainly worth hundreds of thousands of dollars per.

True to form, the tireless self-promoter Griffin has come out with a video apologizing profusely for the image saying she went “way” over the line.

Ms. Griffin should be made aware that nothing says vapid Mammon worshiper like someone making a bold, offensive political statement and then retracting it because it hits you in the wallet.

It’s hard too tell what’s more pathetic about Kathy’s little publicity stunt. Is it the fact that she’s such a follower that she thought this picture was appropriate or how quickly she buckled to save herself a few fucking dollars?

I guess in the end she saw her contracts drying up and realized she was about to become an ex-celebrity and that was just too much for her soulless psyche to take. I suppose saving the republic from the evils of President Cheeto is a secondary consideration to Ms. Griffin. Remaining famous at any cost obviously comes first.

Watching this worm trying to wiggle herself out of this PR stunt’s predictable backlash, though amusing, isn’t the real significance of this short-lived act of self-promoting “defiance”.

What is significant is the fact that she (and apparently her photographer and publicist?) thought it was a reasonable move in the first place.

We are something like 140 days into the Trump presidency and already the Deep State has convinced about half of the country it might be a good idea to lop off the head of the current ruler of these United States.

Not because he’s taking from the poor and giving to the rich. Kathy Griffin is rich. She will benefit tremendously when Trump’s tax plan kicks in. And her stock portfolio is certainly benefiting from the salad days Wall Street is currently enjoying because they know they have a ruthless, pragmatic neoliberal ideologue and his Goldman Sachs crew running things in the White House on their behalf.

No, Kathy isn’t standing up for the poor and downtrodden with this “off with their heads” image of hers. She’s certainly not promoting the idea of a new French Revolution…or Russian Revolution… or even American Revolution.

Nothing like that.

Because if that were the case… she wouldn’t apologize.

Instead she is simply reacting to the endless barrage of Deep State propaganda that has infected the corporate media across the board since Inauguration Day 2017.

Oh, well, sorry. My fault.

Since Election Day 2016 to be more specific.

Oh, wait, my bad.

Since candidate Trump won the Republican Party nomination and Queen Hillary stole her party’s nomination.

There, that’s better.

Right now, thanks to a YouGov poll we know that well over half of the Democrats in this country think da ebil Roooskies “hacked” the election results and that is why Queen Hillary is not our current beloved leader in spite of the fact that her coronation was per-ordained by the Gods of the Deep State, whom she serves willingly.

Now notice: that question isn’t about them thinking the Russians “influenced” the election. That question is about them thinking the Russians hacked into our systems and changed vote totals, something that there is absolutely zero evidence of. None. Zip. Zilch. Nothing.

Not only that, but aside from RT putting 3rd party candidates on their network so they could get some face-time during the campaign season, there is also no evidence of Russia “influencing” our elections either. None. Zip. Zilch. Nothing.

Fascinating isn’t it? With absolutely no evidence what-so-ever, over half of the people polled who self-identify with the Democratic Party believe a complete and utter fabrication… and of course the main stream media knows full well about this poll and about this erroneous belief held by so many Americans… and yet they do nothing to correct it.

That’s probably because the Mockingbird press helped create the misinformation in the first place… just like they did so many years ago:

“In late 2003, half a year after US and coalition forces invaded Iraq, a poll by USA Today found that 70 percent of Americans still believed that Saddam Hussein was responsible for 9/11. They didn’t believe this because the mass media was directly saying “Saddam did 9/11”; they would have lost the public’s trust if they’d directly promulgated such an outrageous falsehood. The public subscribed to this false belief because corporate media reporters consistently mentioned the September 11 terrorist attacks in the same breath as they mentioned the falsified intelligence reports stating that the Iraqi government had weapons of mass destruction and intended to facilitate their use on American soil. This misperception successfully manufactured public support for a regime change invasion that claimed the lives of a million innocent Iraqis.” Medium

As this quote shows us, propaganda has consequences. That’s why the Deep State invests so much of your money in it’s practice.

In the case of Iraq we have a war that is still raging in a country that did nothing to us and never posed the slightest threat to our way of life in the first place. Billions if not trillions in profits have been collected by various Military Industrial Complex aligned companies as well as by various others in the oil, banking and infrastructure rebuilding industries. In fact, all kinds of corporations have profited from the illegal invasion of Iraq and that was all due, not “in part”, but wholly due to the propaganda that linked Saddam Hussian to 9/11 and WMDs he didn’t have.

A million people died as a result and millions more were displaced, made into refugees who are currently being bartered and traded by global interests as cheap labor like the old slave trading posts of days gone by. All of that generating still more profits for those who move the Deep State to action.

Propaganda has consequences. Just ask that young disabled man in Chicago who was tortured by those 4 African American kids who had been fed a daily diet of “whitey all voted for racist Trump” propaganda. Ask that young man what he thinks of the corporate media’s constant barrage of “Ebil Trump” campaigns.

And now you can ask Kathy Griffin right along with him. Better yet, ask her accountant and agent. They’ll tell you.

If you aren’t willing to learn from history, from the mistakes of the past, you are damn sure condemned to repeat them. And that’s more than a cliche… it’s a fact.

In 1933 then president Franklin D. Roosevelt kicked off the start of the New Deal. He started with banking reform since the banksters had been the ones who collapsed the economy causing the Great Depression. In that reform package (the Banking Act of 1933 was a four part piece of legislation) was the Glass-Steagall Act or a modification of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1932. This was tremendously unpopular with the super wealthy elite, even more so than the creation of Social Security. They also instituted the Securities Act of 1933 which put regulations on securities for the first time. Very unpopular with the rabid Wall Street types.

Needless too say, the corporate press at the time did all they could to demonize Roosevelt, but he was still immensely popular with a good part of the population because it had gotten so bad with the elites just ripping off everything they could in the country prior to his election, the people demanded real change and he represented that for them.

Kind of like Trump fans feel right now actually.

In the end, the Deep State, as it was back then, got together and came up with a plan to hire Smedley Butler to run an army of former soldiers to overthrow President Roosevelt and take charge in a bloody coup on their behalf, setting up what would have been a fascist dictatorship. It was called the Business Plot of 1933 for a reason.

Butler, being a true patriot, declined their offer by going along with it for a time and then turning them in. The corporate press denies to this day it ever happened, but it did… and it could again.

All they need is the right atmosphere created where it would be viewed as a necessity rather than a corporate power grab.

And what do we see today? What is today’s milestone?

Propaganda has consequences. Just ask Moammar Gadhafi or Bashar al-Assad.

Or better yet, ask the people of Libya and Syria who’s once beautiful independent nations have been reduced to rubble by our needless, profit-driven corporate Deep State greed.

I am not here too say Donald Trump should be compared to the likes of Roosevelt or Gadhafi or Assad in any way, shape or form. In fact it’s a disservice to mention his name among theirs in any given sentence. They at least stood for something. He doesn’t.

But we can make at least one comparison, like it or not: Trump is the target of the Deep State at the moment, just like they once were

And as such we should be very careful who’s side we choose to take.

The Deep State is not your friend. They do not represent your best interests nor do share your concerns about the world and how this country is run.

The Deep State manufactures grief and they do so with a malice of purpose unlike anything the world has ever seen.

Nothing is “off the table”, nothing is “out of bounds”

When you internalize their propaganda to the point that Ms. Griffin has, anything is possible. That’s how the Wahhabist head-choppers from Saudi Arabia were made. That’s how death squads have been fabricated by Deep State professionals all across the world for decades.

We have a choice before us. Oppose the neoliberal elements of the current administration with civility and respect for the institutions that we have sworn allegiance to since our first days in kindergarten, or embrace the viler angels of our nature like so many “freedom fighters” have in service to the Deep State.

That is where we are and that is the significance of this moment.

We have a choice to make, neither of them good. But it has to be made right now, right here.

Say you are being forced to chose between the lesser of two evils if it makes it any easier. Say you are simply being a responsible adult if you want.

Say whatever you have to but the bottom line is, to quote the Decider of all people, “You are either with us, or with the enemy”… the terrorists.

Unfortunately, we find ourselves at this dire milepost and as such, we must choose a path. Though painful, I suggest we choose wisely.

I for one want no part of the Business Plot of 2017 and I think deep down, you don’t either.

Timshel.

Yemen descending into total collapse as world watches: UN

Tue, 05/30/2017 - 14:43

Meanwhile in Saudi Arabia…

from Press TV

The United Nations says impoverished Yemen is on the brink of total collapse, as the country is facing an ongoing bloody military aggression by Saudi Arabia, an emerging famine, and an outbreak of cholera.

“Crisis is not coming, it is not looming, it is here today, on our watch and ordinary people are paying the price,” said UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Stephen O’Brien in a speech on Tuesday, addressing the UN Security Council.

“The people of Yemen are being subjected to deprivation, disease and death as the world watches,” he said, adding that the crisis is triggering “total social, economic and institutional collapse” in the Arab country…

Syrian government had no role in Idlib chemical attack: Putin

Tue, 05/30/2017 - 14:38

from Press TV

Russian President Vladimir Putin has expressed confidence that the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces had no role in the April chemical attack in Idlib Province, describing the incident as the West’s pretext to continue its pressure against Damascus.

“According to our information, there is no proof that chemical weapons were used by Assad. We are convinced that he did not do it,” Putin said in a Tuesday interview with the French newspaper Le Figaro.

The allegation was a way of “explaining to the international community why it was necessary to continue to impose measures to pressure Assad, including militarily,” Putin added.

The remarks came a day after new French President Emmanuel Macron, whose country blames Assad for the attack, slammed the use of chemical weapons in Syria as a red line for Paris which would result in reprisals…

The Manchester Bombing Story is Becoming Absolutely Ridiculous – The Redacted Photos Prove… He Wasn’t There

Tue, 05/30/2017 - 06:58

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Salman’s body is now the property of the local coroner’s office, says local authorities. They will determine what happens to it. Gee, I wonder if he’ll be given a burial at sea like bin Laden. The justification for this is his family is in Libya. Somehow or another that means local authorities get to do whatever they want with his remains.

UPDATE: Please see important update at end of article

UPDATE: Check out Shawn Helton’s work on the subject of the Manchester attack. He published it right as they released the images.

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away..

Hughes Mearns

I took a close look at the photos released by authorities that claim to show Abedi in the elevator on his way up to bomb the arena. What I found was amazing.

But first…

Jonathan Turley, who used to be the kind of journalist who didn’t simply regurgitate ridiculous propaganda without question, reports suspected bomber Salman Abedi’s sister, Jomana Abedi, says her brother attacked random people in Manchester because he wanted “revenge” for all the folks the U.S. and Britain have bombed in the Middle East. He concludes that Salman is akin to al Qaeda and probably wanted 72 virgins in the afterlife or something. He never ONCE mentions the FACT that Abedi and his brothers and his father have been sent to places like Libya and Syria to terrorize civilian populations for the regime change the U.S. and Britain desperately wanted. It never once occurs to Turley to ask why this contractor would suddenly turn on his paymasters and demonize the entire Libyan community in his hometown while his daddy is reaping the benefits of Britain’s regime change operation in Libya.

I guess “they hate us for our freedom” is good enough for Mr. Turley’s “journalism” these days. It’s a shame isn’t it?

British authorities are quickly rounding up people associated with Salman Abedi. They justify this act by saying they are a “cell” and probably planned the attack along with him. More likely, they are also contractors who came back from Libya after terrorizing the people of that country into regime change and since they have first-hand knowledge of Salman’s previous work experience (including details like WHO he was working for), knowledge that would ultimately confuse the general population were it to get out, they decided to round them up and keep they away from prying media types.

“We are following up on the network, rolling it up, trying to contain it. As you’ve seen from the number of arrests, we are on the right track to try to contain it,” UK Security Minister Ben Wallace told CNN in Manchester on Friday. “In the end, you get to the bottom of a network.” CNN

Salman’s brothers and his father, who all worked for the regime change project in Libya, have been arrested. At first his father was allowed to appear on TV interviews until he said in one of them that his son did not do it. Then he was immediately arrested by our puppet regime in Libya along with Salman’s brothers. Gotta make sure they get their minds right before letting them walk the streets I guess. Ironically, it was the same puppet government in Libya that daddy helped install via his support of violent terrorist regime change.

Looks like Salman’s sister figured it out pretty quickly and got with the program before daddy did.

In the past few days, three photographs have emerged supposedly proving Salman Abedi was the Manchester bomber. One shows him on the side of the road with blue suitcase. The other two, heavily redacted, supposedly show him in an elevator going up to the scene of the attack but it does not. In fact, it shows him still on the side of the road apparently waiting for something, maybe a ride to the airport with his suitcase, on his way to see his brother whom he spoke with the day before.

I will show them to you now. They are amazing in what they inadvertently tell us about the Manchester bombing.

This is reportedly Salman Abedi sometime on May 22nd, the same day as the attack.

Notice he is wearing $300 sneakers and sporting a blue suitcase along with his backpack.

Here he is, supposedly, on an elevator (called a “lift” in Britain) heading up one flight of stairs to the arena where he is alleged to have detonated a bomb in his backpack.

“BOMBER Salman Abedi looks relaxed in a lift — minutes before detonating the home-made dev­ice which killed 22 people at Manchester Arena.” The Sun

And another from the same place.

Notice anything?

Why would they blackout the entire background? Why is the shading so close to his left leg?

Is it because he’s clearly NOT in the elevator where they claim the CCTV footage comes from?

The Sun put together this graphic showing his route to his final destination and they included an interior photo of that elevator.

If you look for a picture of him in that elevator car what you find is that altered image. Nothing else. Can’t find one with him in the elevator without the background blacked out. Why is that? What are they trying to hide. Why the hell would they do that and more importantly, why wont somebody notice it and wonder what they hell they are trying to hide.

I took a close look at the photos released by authorities that claim to show Abedi in the elevator on his way up to bomb the arena. What I found was amazing.

Look at the image of Salman on the street above. He’s standing on the edge of the sidewalk which looks like it was skimcoated with concrete or the curb was extended. Either way, it’s solid grey. Right behind him is the cobblestone roadway with the two worn white lines that are almost in the exact same perspective relative to his leg as the white paint you can see in the photo they blacked out supposedly of him in the elevator.

Again, why the hell would they black out the background in that photo? It’s ridiculous. Don’t you think they would WANT people too clearly see he was actually in that elevator?

This is bizarre. It would appear they simply took a still from the streetside CCTV video and blacked out the background so they could claim it came from the elevator. But why would they do that?

The venue is heavily covered with security cameras. From the subway all the way to the location of the detonation, there has to be multiple cameras that would have covered his approach. The one in the elevator being the most obvious.

Had they released nothing, it would have been suspicious. Plus, his association with MI-5 which is well known at this point, has generated a great deal of suspicion especially when you consider how the attack has been used to assist Theresa May’s campaign in the upcoming election. Her opponent is being portrayed as being “soft on terror” and wants to get Britain out of the Syrian regime change business while May has been a backer of it since the beginning.

Last night Theresa May’s candidacy took another major hit as she “debated” Corbyn and social media took off with Brits mocking her brutally. As she goes, so goes the militarist ambitions of the elite ruling class in the UK. And things seem to be getting worse and worse for her and this was the situation last week right before the attack.

This week, they needed something they could point to as concrete proof that Salman Abedi was the perpetrator of this attack and this is what they came up with: a couple photos of him on the elevator leading up to ground zero minutes before detonation.

The only problem is… it appears they altered them.

Well, it doesn’t “appear” they altered them, they DEFINITELY altered them. The only question is why?

Officially, they claim they did that to “protect identities of those with him”

And in both pictures, the police have blacked out the background, suggesting they wished to protect the identities of people standing next to him at the time. ” Daily Mail

These would just be random people in the elevator heading up to the arena, perhaps to pick up kids at the concert. Why “protect” their identities? From what?

That’s a ridiculous excuse and a closer examination of the images shows he wasn’t in a “lift”… he was most likely on the side of the street waiting for a ride to pick him up and take him to the airport.

The day before the attack, Salman was shopping in a little store near where he lived. There is a security camera video of that but apparently NOT one from the inside of the arena where the attack took place. Hmmm

“He is believed to have bought food and cleaning products, including almonds, tuna, scouring pads and air fresheners, at a convenience store near Granby Road, which is where he assembled the bomb” Telegraph

Air fresheners? Cleaning supplies? He’s about to blow himself up and he cares about how his apartment smells?

Air fresheners are often used inside suitcases to keep from getting that musty “suitcase smell”. Young men will also toss one into their travel case because they had to pack clothes they hadn’t washed yet. Don’t want to show up at a friend or family member’s house and open your suitcase and stink up the place.

It really looks to me that Salman had either contacted his brother or been contacted by him the day before and made plans to travel back to Libya. That explains him being seen that day with the suitcase. He was probably waiting to be picked up by his handler to go to the airport. There are flights out of Manchester to Tripoli everyday, the latest I saw was at 7:30pm local time.

They say he called his brother “15 minutes before the operation began”

Operation to do what? Arrange to be met at the airport in Tripoli?

Of course, they have arrested his brother and other family members and they are now being “questioned” by our brutal regime in Libya. I am sure full confessions are soon to follow.

But that leaves us with those photos and the questions about why they crudely blacked them out the way they did.

Those photos prove nothing and in fact, this whole thing about the “blue suitcase” leaves me even more convinced than ever that Salman Abedi was not involved in this mass casualty event. He was a patsy who’s travel back and forth to Libya and his family’s longstanding connection to our regime change terrorists in that country made him a perfect candidate for the patsy they needed when Theresa May started seriously slipping in the polls. They set him up, told him he had to go back to Libya for some kind of project they were running, gave him a plane ticket and let him make arrangements with his brother and then simply picked him up to take him to the airport and took him someplace else instead.

If they altered photos of him on the street in order to put him at the scene, that means he wasn’t at the scene and they damn well know it. That means they are covering for whomever actually planted that device at the scene and they are doing so acting as an accessory after the fact.

By altering that photo and claiming it is one thing when it probably isn’t, they doing something just as bad as if they photoshopped an image of him at the location. By doing it overtly, letting people know they tampered with the image, they hope to avoid the appearance of deceit. But in reality, they make it obvious.

As I wrote, there is no valid reason to black out the entire background of the image. Even if they did want to conceal the identities of people in that elevator, they could easily have done so by simply blacking out or blurring the image of their faces and other distinguishing characteristics.

The fact that they went through the trouble to black out the entire background tells you it wasn’t someone’s face they were trying to conceal but rather, the location where the image was taken.

As I have shown above, it looks to me like the image was of Salman Abedi standing on the street waiting for a ride to the airport. And that’s why they had to black out the whole image.

Because Salman Abedi wasn’t there.

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away..

Hughes Mearns

UPDATE: Some observant readers brought my attention to something rather odd in terms of those two photos of Salman supposedly taking a 15 second ride up one floor in the elevator. Apparently Salman is some kind of magician. I hadn’t even noticed it at first. I put together the image below after I read the comments. Nice catch folks.

UPDATE: I have now had two readers inform me that they have taken the image into Photoshop and altered the hue and intensity and contrast and done whatever and seen the corners of the interior of the elevator and thus, it proves, he’s in AN elevator. Not necessarily THE elevator.

So, not owning Photoshop, I went to TechCrunch and downloaded what they consider to be the best free photo processing software out there which appears to be something called Gimp 2.8.

I certainly not a Photoshop professional nor do I claim to be one, but I have desaturated the image, dropped shadows, adjusted the contrast and brightness and these two screenshots are what I have come up with thus far. I included the entire screenshot so you could see what I have done thus far.

As you can see… I don’t see lines defining the interior of the elevator as these two commenters suggest.

You guys can see my desktop there, you can see what I am working with in the program. Please feel free to inform me, walk me through the process of adjusting this image so I can see what you see. But for now, I don’t see what you are talking about. If you wish to walk me through the process, I would be glad to do it. thanks

UPDATE: Ok. So, one of these two readers told me to turn shadows all the way up, but I can’t find anywhere on Gimp2.8 to do that, so if anyone knows what he’s talking about, please let me know.

Now, that said, he posted his two images that he claims shows Salman Abedin on an elevator or in a corner of some type which means he’s probably not on the street like I originally thought.

And here are his photos;

It looks like he is standing in the corner of something. Could be an elevator. Does it match the one above? No it does not. Notice the two parallel brushed metal bands on the bottom right near what would be the floor. I don’t see that in the picture of the lift interior above. It could be an elevator he is in or it could be the corner of a room. Or he could be standing on the subway for we can tell.

I don’t see how someone can definitively say from this he’s in that specific lift or any lift for that matter.

I have not been able to reproduce this person’s work on my own system, so I cannot verify it’s authenticity one way or another. But it seems to me he might not be on the street as I originally thought. Still, these images certainly are a long way from placing him at the scene so my original thesis stands. Plus, they blacked out the background for a reason and it wasn’t to protect someone’s identity, even his handlers (since everyone knows you can blur images of faces so they can’t be identified while keeping the background intact that places him at the scene. If they blacked out the whole thing, it was because he probably wasn’t where they said he was)

UPDATE: The other reader who was questioning my theory has offered his evaluation of the images as well. I include it for your consideration.

The Trumpening: DHS Will ‘Likely Increase’ Foreign Worker Outsourcing Visa

Sun, 05/28/2017 - 05:10

by John Binder, Breitbart

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary John Kelly has promised the big business lobby tens of thousands of cheaper, blue-collar foreign workers despite President Donald Trump’s ‘Hire American’ initiative.

During a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Kelly told Senators that he was lobbied by the financial and open borders lobby to expand the H-2B visa, and also by pro-American worker groups who see the visa as a detriment to Americans’ wages and job opportunities.

“They’re caving to the business interest, rather than the people that elected them,” pro-American lawyer John Miano told Breitbart Texas. “Everyone but the very top is being screwed by these immigration policies.”

The H-2B visa is for non-agricultural, low-skilled seasonal work, supplying resorts, hotels and the seafood and landscaping industry with thousands of cheap, foreign employees. Every year, 66,000 H-2B jobs are given to foreign workers and this year, House Speaker Paul Ryan’s 2017 budget gave Kelly the power to expand the number of foreigners who can enter the U.S. on the visa by up to 70,000 more

The Trumpening: State Dept. lifts limit on refugee admissions

Sun, 05/28/2017 - 05:06

(More cheap labor for Big Business and a new life for the CIA’s “moderates” in Syria)

by Olivia Beavers, from the Hill

The State Department quietly lifted its restriction this week on how many refugees are allowed to enter the U.S. despite efforts by the Trump administration to scale back refugee resettlements, The New York Times reported Friday.

Jennifer Smith, a department official, reportedly notified refugee groups of the decision Thursday in an email stating that they could begin bringing refugees to the U.S. “unconstrained by the weekly quotas that were in place.”

Many of the organizations that received the email are private agencies that help guide individuals hoping to enter the country through the two-year U.S. application process.

Privatizing the Police State: Leaked Documents Reveal Counterterrorism Tactics Used at Standing Rock to “Defeat Pipeline Insurgencies”

Sat, 05/27/2017 - 16:15

by , , , from the Intercept

A shadowy international mercenary and security firm known as TigerSwan targeted the movement opposed to the Dakota Access Pipeline with military-style counterterrorism measures, collaborating closely with police in at least five states, according to internal documents obtained by The Intercept. The documents provide the first detailed picture of how TigerSwan, which originated as a U.S. military and State Department contractor helping to execute the global war on terror, worked at the behest of its client Energy Transfer Partners, the company building the Dakota Access Pipeline, to respond to the indigenous-led movement that sought to stop the project.

Internal TigerSwan communications describe the movement as “an ideologically driven insurgency with a strong religious component” and compare the anti-pipeline water protectors to jihadist fighters. One report, dated February 27, 2017, states that since the movement “generally followed the jihadist insurgency model while active, we can expect the individuals who fought for and supported it to follow a post-insurgency model after its collapse.” Drawing comparisons with post-Soviet Afghanistan, the report warns, “While we can expect to see the continued spread of the anti-DAPL diaspora … aggressive intelligence preparation of the battlefield and active coordination between intelligence and security elements are now a proven method of defeating pipeline insurgencies.”

More than 100 internal documents leaked to The Intercept by a TigerSwan contractor, as well as a set of over 1,000 documents obtained via public records requests, reveal that TigerSwan spearheaded a multifaceted private security operation characterized by sweeping and invasive surveillance of protesters.

As policing continues to be militarized and state legislatures around the country pass laws criminalizing protest, the fact that a private security firm retained by a Fortune 500 oil and gas company coordinated its efforts with local, state, and federal law enforcement to undermine the protest movement has profoundly anti-democratic implications…

Included among the documents obtained via public records requests were “daily intelligence updates” developed by TigerSwan that were shared with law enforcement officers, thus contributing to a broad public-private intelligence dragnet..

Brazil’s president forced to rescind order calling out the army against protesters

Fri, 05/26/2017 - 07:18

by Bill Van Auken, WSWS

Brazil’s President Michel Temer Thursday was forced to rescind an executive order he had issued the day before calling the army into the streets and giving it powers of arrest for the period of one week.

The measure was ostensibly taken to quell a protest Wednesday in the capital of Brasilia called by the unions and social movements to oppose pension and labor “reforms” attacking basic social rights and to demand Temer’s ouster and replacement through the calling of direct elections.

Calling out the army, however, had the air of an act of desperation on the part of a president who is facing multiple corruption charges and is viewed as illegitimate by the majority of the Brazilian population.

The most recent opinion polls indicate that Temer, the former vice president who was installed in the presidential palace through the impeachment of his predecessor, Workers Party (PT) President Dilma Rousseff in August 2016 on trumped-up charges of budgetary irregularities, is opposed by 95 percent of the population, with 85 percent favoring the immediate convening of new elections…

Quebec premier amplifies threat to outlaw 175,000-strong construction strike

Fri, 05/26/2017 - 07:15

by Keith Jones, WSWS

On the second day of a strike by 175,000 Quebec construction workers that has shut down hundreds of building sites across Canada’s second most populous province, thousands of workers took to the streets to highlight their opposition to the construction bosses’ sweeping concession demands.

While the workers were marching Thursday morning, Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard announced his Liberal government will illegalize the strike if workers are not back on the job by Monday morning.

“We can’t let the economy bleed $45 million each day,” declared Couillard from Israel, where he is on a trade mission to promote Bombardier and other Quebec-based businesses. “I have asked the government to be ready to act Monday.”

Already last week Couillard signaled he would move rapidly to outlaw a building workers’ strike, saying his government would not “remain arms folded” while a “vital part” of Quebec’s economy was paralyzed.

Among the largest worker job-actions in North America in years, the Quebec construction strike has angered and unnerved the Canadian ruling elite.

Quebec’s largest employer group, the Conseil du Patronat (CPQ), has denounced the workers for taking the province “hostage.” It is urging Couillard not only to pass an “emergency” back-to-work law, but to consider permanently stripping construction workers of the right to strike.

What has piqued the ire of big business and their political hirelings is that the strike has pointed to the enormous social power of the working class. When Couillard and the CPQ rage about the $45 million a day the strike is “costing” Quebec they are admitting, albeit backhandedly, that the workers produce vast wealth. This wealth is appropriated by the construction bosses, banks, and other sections of big business in the form of immense profits…

Syria’s al-Qaeda affiliate escapes from Canada’s terror list

Fri, 05/26/2017 - 05:07

by Evan Dyer, CBC

The Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, currently calling itself Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), has succeeded in getting itself off Canada’s list of designated terrorist entities following its latest identity shift.

That complicates the task of prosecuting Canadians who travel to join the group, send it money or propagandize on its behalf.

It also illustrates the pitfalls of Canada following the lead of the U.S. in designating terror groups…

Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (the Organization for Conquest in the Levant) began life as an expeditionary force called Jabhat al-Nusra (the Support Front), despatched into Syria in 2011 by the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, now “caliph” of the Islamic State (ISIS). Jabhat al-Nusra was led by Syrian jihadist Abu Mohammad al-Jawlani.

The United States put the group on its terrorist list in 2012, as the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, and Canada followed suit.

Al-Baghdadi soon crossed into Syria himself, renouncing his allegiance to al-Qaeda and founding ISIS in April 2013…

What’s In A Name? U.S. Takes Syria’s Al-Qaeda Off Terror Watchlists

Fri, 05/26/2017 - 05:01

by Whitney Webb, Mint Press News

It turns out that getting off the U.S.’ and Canada’s terror watchlist is as simple as changing your name. While the terror watchlist in the U.S. has long been both secretive and controversial – as “reasonable suspicion” is enough to label any individual a “terrorist” – terrorist groups tied to al-Qaeda have found that getting off the watchlist only requires minor rebranding.

The terror group, long known to most as Jabhat al-Nusra or the al-Nusra Front, has continued to function as al-Qaeda’s branch in Syria long after Daesh (ISIS) renounced its allegiance to the group in 2014. It was first placed on the U.S. and Canadian terror watchlists in 2012.

But by changing its name to Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the group has managed to secure its removal from terror watchlists in both the U.S. and Canada, allowing citizens of those countries to donate money to the group, travel to fight with them and disseminate the group’s propaganda without incident.

In response, Nicole Thompson of the U.S. State Department told CBC News last Monday that while “we believe these actions are an al-Qaeda play to bring as much of the Syrian opposition under its operational control as possible, […] we are still studying the issue carefully.”

But the State Department is likely hesitant to label HTS a terror group, even despite the group’s link to al-Qaeda, as the U.S. government has directly funded and armed the Zenki brigade, a group that joined forces with al-Nusra under the HTS banner, with sophisticated weaponry…

Salman Abedi Wasn’t a “Radicalized” Muslim: He Was Part of Britain’s Version of Brigade 2506

Thu, 05/25/2017 - 07:39

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: H/T Polly Ticker

‘Sorted’ by MI5: How UK government sent British-Libyans to fight Gaddafi

By all accounts, 22-year-old Salman Ramadan Abedi, fingered as the suicide bomber at the Manchester Arena who supposedly killed 22 attendees of a concert Monday night, was a normal, well adjusted Libyan kid living in England. But that doesn’t mean he was a normal kid in Great Britain. He was a normal Libyan kid from Manchester, which is something entirely different.

Apparently Manchester is something like Miami here in the United States.

In Miami there is a large population of Cuban exiles who want nothing more than a complete, bloody overthrow of the socialist Castro government in that country and many of them would do whatever it takes to see that happen. Cuban exiles have been used by the U.S. government for various guerilla warfare operations for decades. Operations that attempted to destabilize the government of Cuba making it ready for regime change.

The most well known of these actions was to be known as the Bay of Pigs, April 1961.

“(Bay of Pigs) was a failed military invasion of Cuba undertaken by the CIA-sponsored paramilitary group Brigade 2506 on 17 April 1961. A counter-revolutionary military (made up of Cuban exiles who traveled to the United States after Castro’s takeover), trained and funded by the United States government’s Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Brigade 2506 fronted the armed wing of the Democratic Revolutionary Front (DRF) and intended to overthrow the increasingly communist government of Fidel Castro. Launched from Guatemala and Nicaragua, the invading force was defeated within three days by the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces, under the direct command of Prime Minister Fidel Castro.”

Brigade 2506 was made up of about 1,300 Cuban exiles, mostly from Miami. They were exiles themselves or children of exiles. They were shipped to Guatemala, trained to be terrorists by the CIA for a year and eventually they were unleashed on the Cuban people on April 17th, 1961.

There was absolutely no way 1,300 rag-tag “freedom fighters” was going to overthrow the legitimate government of Cuba. That was never the intention. They were bait designed to be horribly outnumbered and over-matched so that the new president, John F. Kennedy, would be forced to launch airstrikes and a ground invasion against Cuba in order to save them.

It didn’t work out that way and most of them were captured by the Castro government and eventually released about a year later to go back home to Miami where they were treated as heroes and had a party thrown for them at the Orange Bowl by President Kennedy.

The Cuban exiles are primarily Cuban fascists who thrived during the glory days of Cuba’s Batista regime. After the revolution and the subsequent nationalizations that followed, Cuba’s Business-firsters were sent packing because Castro knew they would always plot and plan his demise from within hoping to once again turn the country into the fascist profit center it once was. That’s who sent their young men and kids over to the waiting arms of the CIA to be trained as terrorists so they could help “liberate” their home country from the evils of national healthcare, universal education and land reform.

In much the same way the Libyans of Manchester longed for the day Moammar Gadhafi was removed from power. So when the Brits and Hillary Clinton kicked off the color revolution in Libya in 2011, Libyan families were more than happy to offer-up their children to the cause… in hopes they could parley their efforts (and lives?) into a glorious return to their home country and a return to business as it used to be in Libya.

Salman Ramadan Abedi’s father Ramadan Abedi, also known by Abu Ismail, fled Libya just after the revolution that brought the Green Revolution to power. He was found to be tipping off future terrorists before they could be rounded up and kept from destabilizing the country, so he high-tailed it to Britain where he ended up living in Manchester, which, like Maimi, became a mecca for angry exiles who were pissed off because their profitable country had suddenly been turned over to the peasants.

In the 1990s, Ramadan worked as a security officer in Libya under Moammar Gadhafi‘s dictatorship. But he was accused of tipping off Islamists before police raids and fled to Saudi Arabia in 1993. He spent less than one year in the country before packing up and fleeing to the U.K. He and his family sought political asylum and resided there for about 25 years.

In 2011, the father returned to Libya after the uprising, overthrow and death of Gadhafi. ” Chris Bucher

Back in 2011 when the Libyan color revolution kicked into high gear, the press in Britain had a very different take on Libyan kids heading over to the country to train to be terrorists and fight against the legitimate government. A very different take (H/T Resident)…

When the people of the eastern city of Benghazi rose up against Colonel Gaddafi’s rule, his son Saif was straight on Libyan state television, warning viewers that the uprising was the work of Libyans in the west who wanted to invade and steal the country’s oil.

And when he spoke of “Libyans in the west”, Saif Gaddafi included Manchester in his list.

He’s right that there are thousands of Libyans in Manchester who hate the Gaddafi regime. The city is home to Britain’s largest Libyan community. Almost every elder you meet fled Libya in the last 20 years, warned that they would be arrested or killed if they stayed, simply for calling for change.

They fled west in terror. But now they sense Gaddafi could finally be beaten; they’re not afraid any more. And they are daring to go back – some to find family, others to help the rebels. Some to fight alongside them.” Channel 4 News, June 2011

The Libyan exiles living in Manchester became Britain’s version of Brigade 2506 They were recruited, trained and shipped to Libya to overthrow the legitimate left-wing government of that once beautiful country so the technocrats could move in and chop up the nation as fast as they could once Moammar was out of the way. And many opportunistic Libyans from Manchester figured they would get in on the ground floor by sending their offspring to train as and become the terrorists who started the collapse.

Salman Ramadan Abedi’s father was one such exile.

Ultimately Ramadan would eventually send three of his children to fight and terrorize Libyan people, the ones who are struggling to take back their country from Britain and the U.S.

Unfortunately for the people of Libya, John F. Kennedy wasn’t the president in 2011… Barack Obama was. A man who by all accounts lacks a moral center of any kind. The British appealed to Hillary Clinton’s greed and naked opportunism and they got her on board and she eventually sold the regime change operation to President Obama (according to Clinton)

Unlike Cuba, when the rag-tag band of exile terrorists got in trouble and it looked like Libya was going to wipe them out… Hillary and Barack did what Kennedy would not… sent in the airstrikes and killed thousands of Libyans so the British exile terrorists would prevail.

Since then Ramadan Abedi has been living in Libya and working for the puppet government we set up after Gadhafi’s murder. His sons went over to live with him and eventually to train with the CIA terrorist groups that destabilized the country in the first place. It is unclear whether or not they all ended up traveling to Syria to take part in that destabilization campaign but they did go back and forth to Britain regularly with no travel restrictions.

Today, Abedi the father is under arrest by the same puppet regime he went to work for. Masked arrested him yesterday as he tried to tell the press his son did not attack British civilians in Manchester.

Salman’s brothers have also been arrested. Looks like someone is trying to silence a number of folks who know him and know what he REALLY was and who REALLY radicalized him.

A number of other Libyans living in Manchester were also arrested. They were living in a house that one of the brothers lived in. In all likelihood, they were also arrested because of what the KNEW about Salman and his history as opposed to what they planned to do.

That’s what they have to do folks. When the cash in an asset like they did with Salman, they have to make sure anyone who knows he was part of a British program similar to Brigade 2506 is arrested and kept from opening their mouths to the press.

But if you look at the history of this family, if you understand the history of the Libyan exiles in Manchester, you can figure it out without their testimony.

The statement of the father before he was whisked away makes it very clear and even though he is gone now the truth is still out there, if but only a few will ever have the chance to see it and understand it for what it really is.

Last night on Tucker Carlson, he had two guests on, one was Nigel Farge.

They were pondering the question of why there are 400 known terrorist trained British citizens living in the UK without being arrested, without being kept from returning from places like Syria and Libya.

Of course, the screeching Islamaphobes blamed this trend on “politically correct” politicians who are unwilling to do what they said needs to be done, meaning crack down on “radical Islam”

It never once occurred to them that the 400 or so CIA-trained terrorists living among the British population are there and allowed to move about freely because they had served the British wing of the Deep State as members of al Qaeda, al-Nusra, Libya Shield Force , 17 February Martyrs’ Brigade and even “ISIS”

In the United States there have been dozens of terrorist attacks carried out by Cuban exiles living here in complete freedom. Exiles who were trained to be terrorists in other countries. Hell, Kennedy threw them a damn party when they got back.

Some of these terrorists killed placed bombs on planes, they killed the Chilean ambassador to the U.S., they’ve bombed ships in the Miami harbor.

In one 24-hour period in December, 1975, a Cuban exile terrorist placed 8 bombs in the Miami, Florida area.  Most of these bombs were placed in Government buildings such as Post Offices, Social Security Offices, the State Attorney’s office in Miami, and even in the Miami FBI Office.

There have also been several political shootings attributed to Cuban exile terrorists. Summary of Dawson talks 6/18. 19/79

Sometimes the exile communities take matters into their own hands. Sometimes they are the perfect candidates for various Deep State actions because they are trained and experienced killers with a fanatical devotion to their “cause”

One of them was even linked to a grassy knoll back in ’63. We may never know if that is true, but it does make one wonder, does it not?

Ramadan Abedi was a Libyan exile living in Manchester surrounded by scores of other Libyan exiles all waiting for the day they could return home and profit from the fire sale that would follow the regime change of Libya. He got his wish.

Whether or not his son Salman went off the rails is a question for another day.

We know the timing of the event couldn’t have served the establishment Conservative party any better as it shut down the campaign that Theresa May was in the process of losing. That’s a fact that is completely undeniable.

We also know his father (and brother?) said Salman didn’t do it… right before they were all arrested and whisked away for a couple “re-education” sessions in some dark hole somewhere.

Was Salman and his family “radicalized”? Yes. But not by Islam and certainly not by the internet.

They were radicalized by a lifetime of dreams of returning to their home country so they could get in there on the ground floor and turn a profit like all the other vultures who flock to the carcass of a regime changed country to pick the bones clean and make their fortunes off the scraps left by British and U.S. “national interests”

Let this be a lesson to all those who think their Deep State handlers have your best interests at heart. They don’t. They will turn you out like the whores your are and never miss one night’s sleep over it. Just like most exiles feel the suffering of the people from their home countries is worth them getting back to business and making profits, the Deep State will gladly offer you and your’s up to the Greater Good. Whether they do it over there as a “freedom fighter” or back home as a “radicalized terrorist” it doesn’t matter. You are fodder to them, pawns in a great game you know nothing about except for your personal greed and ambition.

Did Salman do it? Doubtful.

Is he the patsy? Definitely.

Did he and his family get what they deserved? …

Not all Libyans living in Manchester are fascist terrorists working for the Deep State by becoming terrorists in places like Syria and Libya. And not all Cubans living in exile in Miami are the kinds that conducted so many terrorists acts over the past couple of decades in Cuba and the U.S. I do not mean to give that impression with this article. But the fact is, some are. There are thousands of Libyans living in the U.K. who have not become “freedom fighters” overseas just as there are hundreds of thousands of Cubans living here in America who would like to see a political change in Cuba brought about by peaceful means. In fact, the vast majority of these people living in exile are decent people just trying to get by like everyone else. Extremists of any group should never be held as representatives of the whole.

Once Exposed for Lying to the Senate, John Brennan Testifies Before Congress about Donald Trump as the Fake Left Swoons

Wed, 05/24/2017 - 10:38

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: It should also be noted that John Brennan’s emails were published by Wikileaks in 2015. Was that the dreaded Russians as well? Perhaps Trump colluded on that project?

“(Brennan’s) remarks, before the House Intelligence Committee, are the most direct acknowledgment yet by a current or former U.S. official that Russia sought to recruit Americans to help in its effort to affect the 2016 contest. ” Politico

Anyone who bothers to read the statement made by Brennan might have a little trouble with the use of the term “direct acknowledgment,” It was certainly anything but “direct”

He was at one time called “Deputy President” by his colleagues at the Pentagon and other various Deep State assets. They called him that because of his influence on foreign policy and his absolute control over the extremely controversial Obama administration drone program (what I call the “Death Squad from Above” plan)

Since then, former CIA chief John Brennan has suffered something of a fall from grace.

CIA Director John Brennan today petulantly denied that he lied in March when he publicly insisted that the CIA had not improperly accessed the computers of Senate staffers investigating the agency’s role in torturing detainees.

Since then, an  internal investigation found the CIA had done just that, and Brennan was forced to apologize to Senate intelligence committee members. The Intercept, 2014

That happened because while serving as the head of the Central Intelligence Agency, John Brennan went before congress and lied about spying on members of congress when they were investigating the CIA. He said it didn’t happen. It did. He apologized for lying

Guardian 2014: CIA director John Brennan lied to you and to the Senate. Fire him – Private apologies are not enough for a defender of torture, the architect of America’s drone program and the most talented liar in Washington. The nation’s top spy needs to go

They called him “Deputy President”. I called him “The Witch King of Angmar” because he is the personification of the Deep State’s Praetorian Guard, serving them with tireless ambition and a ruthless dedication to his mission much like the fictional Nazgûl or “Ringwraiths” serve Sauron in Mordor. The Witch King is a nameless, faceless creature that was once human but transformed by power and the lust for more of it.

Brennan’s statement to congress yesterday was a careful dance of innuendo and misdirecting nuance that was sure to provide the complicit media with everything they need to continue the unconventional warfare campaign against the seated president while also being mindful of his last trip before the hollowed halls of congress.

“I encountered and am aware of information and intelligence that revealed contacts and interactions between Russian officials and U.S. persons involved in the Trump campaign that I was concerned about because of known Russian efforts to suborn such individuals. And it raised questions in my mind again whether or not the Russians were able to gain the cooperation of those individuals.” John Brennan

Brennan never once said there was evidence of collusion between Trump and the dreaded Russians. He talked in cryptic circles inferring something he couldn’t come right out and say without being prosecuted in the future for lying to congress… again. Nor did he make mention of the 5 Eyes program being used to spy on the Trump campaign, certainly that was the source of the information he was speaking about.

But that didn’t stop the fake left press as it continues it’s “strategy of tension” campaign in the media against the target of opportunity known as President Trump.

We have seen this before. We have seen the Deep State unleash their Ministry of Truth assets on various leaders from Yugoslavia, to Iran, to Turkey, to Ukraine, to Libya, to Syria, to Russia, to Chile, to Cuba… to… to ….. to…….

“In the early stages of a U.S. plan for regime change, there is little difference between the methods used to achieve it at the ballot box or by an anti-constitutional coup.  Many of these tools and methods were developed to install right-wing governments in occupied countries in Europe and Asia after World War II.  They include forming and funding conservative political parties, student groups, trade unions and media outlets, and running well-oiled propaganda campaigns both in the country being targeted and in regional, international and U.S. media…”  Nicolas Davies 2014

In 1964 “... the CIA provided more than half the Christian Democrats’ campaign funds and launched a multimedia propaganda campaign on film, TV, radio, newspapers” depicting left-leaning Salvador Allende as a communist mole “This classic “red scare” campaign, dominated by images of firing squads and Soviet tanks, was designed mainly to terrify women.  The CIA produced 20 radio spots per day

It’s always the same. It’s always connections with Russia that they use as the excuse.

Across the fake left spectrum, from the Young Turks to the Huffington Post and CNN alike, they are praising Brennan for speaking “truth to power” in congress.

Forgotten was the fact that Brennan has a proven record of lying to congress.

Forgotten was the fact that Brennan ran all the programs the fake left pretended to scold President Peace Prize about during his tenure in office. Brennan ran the drone program which killed civilians indiscriminately if they happened to be located near someone Brennan wished to see dead.

Brennan ran torture programs overseas and paid cash money for leftists turned in by opportunists abroad looking to cash in with the CIA.

Pretty much every nasty thing you can say about Obama’s foreign policy had John Brennan’s signature all over it. Name your issue, Brennan was your man back in the day.

But today, the fake left adores him. They swoon with confirmation bias as he fingers the president in his round-about way, saying, yet not saying, anything of substance.

The fake left, a.k.a. the “resistance”, with the likes of Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann and Hillary Clinton are pouncing on the moment to further destabilize the president armed with the words of the proven liar, the Witch King of Angmar, John “Deputy President” Brennan.

Oh if only such operations were clearly laid out ready for the independent media to report on them and expose them for what they really were.

Oh wait… silly me. That does already exist: UW Pocket Guide V1.0, 5 April 2016

Starting to get the picture?

disclaimer: I am disabled. It is well known on this site. Also well known is my loathing at the Duke of Orange (that’s what I call Trump) and everything he stands for in terms of his neoliberal greedy domestic economic ideology. I think he is a coward and a silver spooner who had the world handed to him on a platter and all he could do with it was turn himself into an international playboy. He is shallow and ignorant and all he cares about is himself. I did not vote for him, I do not support him in any way.

However, I support democracy or at least the idea of it that we share in this country and though our elections are rigged and our politicians bought off, I am deeply offended when the masters of the universe use their ‘soft power” unconventional warfare tools against our country… against our people. I am offended when they use them against others and I write about those and expose them as best I can… so I am condemned by conscience to do the same when they turn their unaccountable power against us, against a seated president, in such an obvious manner as this.

I am offended on principle but I am also offended by the complicity of the fake left who sit back and allow it to take shape right in front of them without saying a word for fear of reprisal or excommunication. Take Jimmy Dore for instance. His turn on the “Trump and Russia” bullshit is perhaps the most offensive I have seen recently.

When such practices as these take place overseas and become banal in our society, their importation as viable means to manipulate policy becomes almost mandatory. When laws are ignored, criminality becomes the normal operating procedure for banks, politicians and generals. What’s worse is the condition is progressive and ultimately fatal to any free society.

I am disabled. Trump’s economic plan issued yesterday looks to cut funding for the disabled like myself considerably over the next few years in anticipation of the privatization of the entire Social Security program. It is offensive to me and a threat to my livelihood and even my life. No one could say I support this bastard or what he stands for and do so with a straight face.

But I do support keeping the Deep State from running this country from behind the scenes through assholes like Brennan and Clinton and Maddow and Olbermann. That thought sickens me even more. That’s why I write what I write. I started this website with that in mind and I will continue it as long as I can in the same fashion.

As Mordor Trembles, Theresa May Unleashes Operation Temperer to “Save” the Election

Wed, 05/24/2017 - 08:21

by Scott Creighton

UW Pocket Guide V 1.0, 5 April 2016

Terms Used in UW – Joint doctrine defines UW as activities conducted to enable a resistance movement or insurgency to coerce , disrupt , or overthrow a government or occupying power by operating through or with an underground, auxiliary and guerrilla force in a denied area. (JP 3 – 05)

Put aside for a minute all the work of the Deep State (a.k.a. Mordor) in places like Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen, Egypt, Sudan, Pakistan and the whole of the African continent.

And while reading the following keep in mind the fact that German soldiers (plural) were just arrested in Europe for planning false flag terror attacks in various Westernized nations.

Just keep that in mind.

Right now the Deep State is bringing it’s special brand of unaccountable, unchecked global warfare (a.k.a. “unconventional warfare”) to bear against a rising populist wave of discontent in it’s own Westernized home states.

  • When the Brexit referendum was pending, the complicit media, the Ministry of Truth arm of the Deep State, warned of horrors that would befall the whole of the United Kingdom were they to “vote the wrong way”
  • The populist Bernie Sanders was slandered endlessly during the primary campaign here in the States and when the nomination was stolen from his supporters, they appeased their owners by demanding his followers acquiesce to the power of the “lesser of two evils” and join ranks against Donald Trump.
  • Trump was perhaps the most maligned candidate in the history of this country. The attacks on his candidacy were leveled from both the fake left and the establishment right. The neocons and warmongers from both sides of the artificial divide attacked him regularly as the 5 Eyes spied on him and reported their findings on a weekly basis.
  • In France the corporate press made Marine La Pen look like someone just slightly to the right of Adolf Hitler. Terror struck just before the election.
  • In Britain as the establishment’s Prime Minister watched her poll numbers fall and her silent backers worried about her unprecedented manifesto U-turn and the damage that would cause her… as they watched helplessly as Corbyn rose in popularity as his message resonated with an angry population… terrorism struck forcing all to be placed on hold until the “order” of stability could be achieved.
  • In the States, the Witch King of Angmar spoke to congress in cryptic, circular glimpses of innuendo designed to be flushed out by their Ministry of Truth assets and quickly reinterpreted to mean more than they actually mean or were intended to mean in terms of future legal action. But for all the breathless press they are giving his testimony, he should never have been there in the first place. The Witch King was deposed when the world came to know he had a habit of lying… to congress… about spying…. on congress… when congress was investigating… the Witch King of Angmar. The complicit press forgets all of that as if it never really happened. But it did.

Arguments can be made about whether or not sanders or La Pen or Trump or even Corbyn actually intended to follow through with their populist promises. That is not the immediate issue at hand.

The issue at hand is whether or not the Deep State ever intended to allow them the opportunity to do so and whether or not they acted in their own interests to coerce one of these candidates into actions they demanded after his legal and legitimate election.

And whether or not they intend to allow another to be elected in the first place.

In France they were successful in frightening the French people into surrendering to a Rothschild banker who’s married to a pedophile. He’s vapid, he’s vacant and he will do Mordor’s bidding without question, without hesitation.

In the UK and the States, they failed. And today in Britain, the Deep State is clamping down on the population by enacting a law from 2015 which will put British troops on the streets of places like Manchester to “restore order” to an already ordered nation but one that suffers from a deep and growing dissatisfaction with the neoliberal agenda Theresa May has been following and intends to continue following until orders from Mordor tell her otherwise.

It seems she has triggered Operation Temperer, a plan for troops to protect key sites like transport hubs, stadiums and key landmarks at times of high terror threat.

This plan was first formed in 2015 – after Mrs May, as Home Secretary, had decimated police forces across the country. Bear in mind that Mrs May was part of the Cameron government that believed every piece of state apparatus apart from the military and the judicial system should be privatised, including the police. The idea was to de-fund forces, wait for the system to break down, and then bring in private organisations like G4S – in the same way the NHS in England is being stealth-privatised by the same Conservatives.

Now, with 20,000 fewer police on our streets, Mrs May is using the threat of terror to put the army in their place and threaten us into voting for her.

She’ll be saying we need her “strong and stable” government (she took the line from Hitler’s Mein Kampf, by the way – apparently it’s on page 287 of the Kindle edition, if anybody wants to look it up), coupling the claim with an unsupportable threat that Jeremy Corbyn would be weak in response to a terror threat. All the evidence suggests he would be better than her – at least he wouldn’t use terrorism as an electioneering ploy. Mike Sivier

The secret plan to militarize policing in the UK with storm-troopers walking the streets was never something the general public approved or even knew about until it was leaked to the press. Of course, the complicit media called it a ‘conspiracy theory’ until … well, until yesterday.

Operation Temperer – the government plan to put thousands of soldiers on the streets in response to a major terrorist threat, was devised in 2015 and had been a secret until it was accidentally leaked to a newspaper. Telegraph

In France they didn’t need to bring their door-kickers back from Iraq and Afghanistan to frighten the public. I guess their miscalculation with Brexit has made them gun-shy in the UK. Figured they needed an extra bit of theatrics to get Brits to “vote the right way” after that.

Theresa May says “intelligence” agencies tell her there is more terrorism on the way which is why she claims they took this historic step to militarize the streets of London.

And we all know who the Deep State is, right? It’s the dark whisperers from the mahogany boardrooms who issue demands from the shadows to the “intelligence” services like GCHQ, MI5, MI6, the Mossad, the FBI and the CIA.

They are the ones who demanded Operation Temperer to temper the rising tide of populism before they find themselves with a prime minister named Corbyn.

Meanwhile there are still only two photos of the scene at the Manchester Arena where a suicide bomber decided to let off an explosion, well away from large crowds, outside the arena, next to a wall, just as the event ended and right before large crowds made it outside. No videos of the attack have been released as of the writing of this article.

Also of note: the complicit press has let the Manchester Attack slip from their priorities list in just over 24 hours. This morning, Fox, CNN, MSNBC and ABC covered the testimony of ex-CIA head John Brennan for the first half of their segments, only then briefly mentioning new details in the Manchester bombing story. Then on to something else.

It was almost as if it served it purpose and now is starting to vanish from official view… perhaps some figure the less scrutiny it receives the better.

I am told a CNN reporter suggested it might have been the work of far-right wing agents looking to demonize Muslims and aid in Theresa May’s slumping campaign. That would be known as a false flag. Critics attacked this notion and it quietly went away as I am sure so will the career of that CNN reporter.

Which brings us back to German troops (plural mind you) arrested for planning false flag events in Europe. Still thinking about that? Good. Now think about this:

“Coordinated by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), {the secret armies} were run by the European military secret services in close cooperation with the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the British foreign secret service Secret Intelligence Service (SIS, also MI6). Trained together with US Green Berets and British Special Air Service (SAS), these clandestine NATO soldiers, with access to underground arms caches, prepared to fight against a potential Soviet invasion and occupation of Western Europe, as well as the coming to power of communist parties. The clandestine international network covered the European NATO membership, including Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Luxemburg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, and Turkey, as well as the neutral European countries of Austria, Finland, Sweden and Switzerland.” Daniele Ganser

Swiss historian Daniele Ganser in his 2005 book, NATO’s Secret Armies: Operation Gladio and Terrorism in Western Europe, accused Gladio of trying to influence policies through the means of “false flag” operations and a “strategy of tension“. Ganser alleges that on various occasions, stay-behind movements became linked to right-wing terrorism, crime and attempted coups d’état.[8] In NATO’s Secret Armies Ganser states that Gladio units closely cooperated with NATO and the CIA and that Gladio in Italy was responsible for terrorist attacks against its own civilian population.[63]

History is playing out before us. WWIII is not a hot war, nor a cold one. It is an unconventional one being waged by the Deep State and their assets on us, the peasants who tend to vote in our own interests… like they do.

Terrorism is real. It is not a myth. Bombs explode, people are injured. In Westernized nations, fatality numbers may be exaggerated, victims may even be fabricated in the aftermath of some of these false flag operations, but ultimately, it’s still terrorism.

What is the motive “ISIS” would have to strike a concert in Manchester at this particular time? No one knows really.

What is the Deep State’s? Well that is a much easier question, now isn’t it?
