How Trump Can Beat The Deep State
By Brother Nathanael Kapner
It’s a state within a state, an invisible hand, whose players act behind the scenes.
It’s a “deep state” beast for Trump to disrobe until its members are exposed.
He’s already lifted the skirt.
[Clip: “I think it’s pretty sad when intelligence reports get leaked out to the press. I think it’s pretty sad. First of all, it’s illegal.”]
And out of the beltway swamp a criminal beast breaks through.
The Jewish Lobby; the CIA; the Military/Wall Street Complex; and the NGO’s.
If you don’t play ball with the Jewish Lobby your career on Capitol Hill is over.
Stuffing cash into the coffers of Gentile hacks means a “deep state” slush fund that keeps on giving.
Second. Corporate interests are the CIA’s game.
In pushing US hegemony worldwide, any one standing in its way, like Russia and Iran, are targeted.
It’s an open secret that the CIA and Mossad copulated together to create al-Qaeda to perpetuate that endless “War on Terror.”
ISIS was birthed from the same womb.
And the ’secret’ that the CIA can buy a journalist cheaper than a call girl is paraded on every page of the Washington Post and on every line of the New York Times.
Third. The Military-Wall Street Complex thrives wherever a threat can be cooked up.
Resist Zionist aggression, like Syria, Jewish Wall Street and its Defense clients move in to make a killing.
“War is a racket,” said General Smedley.
It’s a “deep state” racket looking for wars in anti-Zionist places.
Fourth. NGOs like George Soros’s “Open Society” have agents around the globe bent on overthrowing governments overtly, what the CIA used to do covertly.
Since 2012, millions of dollars have been funneled through the State Department to Soros Groups in Macedonia working to destabilize its Russia-friendly government.
It’s a “deep state” snake which strikes with or without consent of any US president.
And by the way, Soros’s real name is György Schwartz. Yet another Jew hiding behind a Gentile name.
So how can Trump beat the “deep state?”
Remove its moles from within, like Kushner, Cohn, and Mnuchin;
Tell Israel to take their ‘Jewish state’ and shove it;
Stop cooking up threats;
Trade with nations, not tirades against them;
and…Grow a Peace Economy on the grave of the War Economy.
You can do it Mr Trump, drain the deep state, that’s the real swamp.

Philokalia - The Complete Text
You have very true and wise words Sir.
I very much appreciate your views and look forward to your videos. Wish you much success in the education of the unaware.
Everything the Jews do is legal in Jewish law!
I wish Trump all the best, but it seems to me it is impossible to win against the powers of the deep state.
The parasite dies when the host dies.
Dear Brother Nathanael,
Did You know that Jared Kushner owns a building in New York, 666 Fifth Avenue, and reportedly a company called “Lucent” in that building manufactures the RFID chip?
Jared Kushner claims to be an Orthodox Jew, but he seem to have ties to the Lubavicher Chabad cult.
There are pictures of Lubavitch rabbis surrounding the desk of G.W. Bush while he signed into US Public Law the “Noahide Laws.” I understand that one of those seven “laws” demands the beheading of all those who “worship idols.”
Christians are said to be such “idolaters” since they worship The Lord Jesus and say that He is the Son of God.
That Jared Kushner and his wife are decidedly creepy people. Is President Trump on America’s side or theirs?
Why did Trump allow this son in law of his to be allowed security clearance so that he can go to the President’s security briefings?
I read that some Israeli politician said that now “There is no daylight between the American Government and the Israeli Government.”
Sounds as though they really are One Government - and I do not know know what to make of it, except that it is frightening; chilling, to put it mildly.
Apparently these “Noahide Laws” are to be applied World wide!
Politicians Schneering and Replacing Christian Values
He’d probably be killed, but maybe not, once/if he sets up his mind.
Jews’ law is man-made that’s why they hate Christianity–because it’s from God and you just can’t override that.
They are not in a position to dictate or trade with Him.
Even if Israel disappeared off the face of the map tomorrow, nonJews would be left with Covert Israel tyranny spread across ALL nations in Europe, the Americas and Australia.
Jews are NOT only two percent of the population (their proportion has grown by their use of serial wars and lethal medical care). Jews are presidents in almost ALL countries.
The US Military are Shabez Goyim doing the dirty work of the Jews in ethnically cleansing the Mideast.
Israel’s control of the Mideast gives them control of: 1) East-West commercial shipping through the Suez Canal; 2) all oil pipelines; 3) African gold, diamonds, rare metals, natural gas; 4) the Mediterranean and routes to India, Tibet, China.
How can this Jewish Bloodline Tyranny be broken?
1. End the Jews’ ownership of ALL central banks and BIS by establishing an alternative banking system.
2. Release the “free energy” generators of Nikola Tesla to the public (breaking the backs of the Oil Barons).
3. Prosecute Major Media Owners who “fabricate and disseminate” phony news stories.
4. Prosecute the murders and thefts authorized by heads of Kabbalah-based secret societies and pseudo-Christian religions.
How does the intelligence agencies and mega corporations racket work exactly?
Are most of the spooks Jews?

“And the ’secret’ that the CIA can buy a journalist cheaper than a call girl…”
The President of the United States should be given constitutional right to kill two journalists per year without explanation.
@ t.j. You’re thinking of Michael “son of the devil” Chertoff who got rich x-raying your children.
Alan Chertoff was a sneering Jew talker formerly on CNBC & CNN, probably dead of AIDS.
Look, Trumpf has more Jews controlling him than Peace Prize (what war criminal will get one next?) recipient Jewbolabombya. Think they’ll give Don a Prize? The whole deal stinks of corruption to high heaven. Really.
As Trump has some money, the jews can’t totally control him as a financial slave, as with their first choice the Killary. That’s the reason the Jews slander him, plus his father was a Deutschlander.
Remember what they did to America First Lindbergh’s baby. Watch out for Barron. Synagogue of Satan indeed.
Remember, the tribes the Jews and their temporary allies are not able to exterminate (or flush into European populated countries) are to become bond sevants of Shlomo. Take your pick.
It’s in the Talmud. Same old evil is good, for the sons of the Devil.
As usual the Jews and their lackeys are working overtime to confuse the American public in any ways imaginable and betting Americans will fall for it.
It appears the latest smoke screen is now the “Obama shadow government”, another silly euphemism for gullible goys to swallow to distract them from looking at the big Jew behind the curtain.
Jewish writer Daniel Greenfield has a predictably stupid article where he states the following:
“Obama controls the opposition. He will have a great deal of power to choose future members of Congress and the 2020 candidate. But he could have done much of that from Chicago or New York. The reason he didn’t decide to move on from D.C. is that the nation’s capital contains the infrastructure of the national government. He doesn’t just want to run the Democrats. He wants to run America.”
While it wouldn’t surprise most that Obama might oppose the Trump administration, the idea that he has the power or willingness to run some shadow government is laughable nonsense. Obama is far more interested in living the high life in a happy retirement golfing and leaving the mess of D.C. mostly behind for good.
The Jewish M.O. is always to capitalize on their complete control of the press to spread whatever nonsense they think up to endlessly confuse the public.
Even more idiotic are supposedly iconic conservative personalities like the fat idiot coward Rush Limbaugh, claiming the same thing:
It’s an obvious shell game to anyone paying attention. Blame the Russians, Obama, “corporations”, “Deep state” or “radical Islam,” whatever.. their game remains the same!
All the while Jewish celebrities like Barbara Streisand and Sarah Silverman are making total fools of themselves with comments about Trump with no basis in grievance or fact. Overweening hubris is always the Jews’ undoing.
@politics is BS
If you control the money you control everything.
It only cost 30 pieces of silver to kick the whole thing off, and since then nothing has changed for 2,000 years.
There is just to much that Trump has to do! First he has to stop all Islam coming to America.
Second, he has to stop the NATO aggression towards Russia.
Third, he has to stop the money being used in the Middle East and relying on oil from the Middle East. He has to use that Money to fix America.
Fourth, He has to play Hard Ball! He has to fire and remove all politicians getting money from Soros.
Fifth, he has to push American Values Christianity and natural food and healing. (Doctors are being murdered, scientist are being murdered)
Sixth, has to tell Japan stop lying to the world Fukashima is not fixed and is killing the Pacific Ocean and we need to fix it.
Seventh, he has to remove the DHS, NSA, Break the CIA, stop all this funding for the Pentagon.
Eighth, he has to do something about the Fed and start printing money as the Gold Standard.
Ninth, he has to build that wall!
Tenth, he has to call out Germany like he did Sweden on all the rapes this Islamist Muslims commit and try to commit.
He has to stay away from G7 unless he is there to break some heads.
He needs to tell the DNS to go shove it and take away the sanctions on Russia.
I could go on and on — what a mess!
If Trump’s still alive at the end of his first term, he’ll surely hate politics to a point that he’ll not consider running for a second term. He’s getting a real eye opener regarding his Jew buddies.
Hopefully, He doesn’t buy his way out of the Jew trap the way Clinton did - by bombing Iraq in December of 1998 for the reason his wife’s aid Huma Abedin alleged: “. . . to deflect from his affair with Monica Lewinsky.”
Personally, I think it was a bribe by the Jews: “Bomb Iraq and we’ll pull the heat off!” Since he did so only three months after the HJC announced their resolution to begin an impeachment inquiry.
Let’s hope Trump is tougher than that.
The deep state defined as a state within a state is a good way to look at it. Collective Israel, Jews in positions of power, are the deep state. Of course Wikipedia or USA Today won’t say that.
Department heads, CEOs, chiefs of staff, billionaires, and similar Jews in high places run the world’s governments and influential institutions, especially secret agencies like the FBI, CIA, NSA. Prophecy as far back as Genesis made predictions about Levi, the father of Judaism, and his secrets -
Gen 49:5-6 GNT - Simeon and Levi are brothers. They use their weapons to commit violence. 6 I will not join in their SECRET talks, nor will I take part in their meetings, for they killed people in anger and they crippled bulls for sport.
The JWO spies, lieutenants, and underlings have a tight grip on the secret agencies. They prefer darkness to light, deceit to truth, secrecy to transparency. They hide their dark deeds or blame them on their enemies - Christians typically.
Richard Nixon probably didn’t realize the government, media, and institutions of power were so infected with Jews until he found out the hard way. Long after Nixon was dead, it came out that FBI Deputy Director Mark Felt was betraying Nixon to the Jews Media.
After keeping secret for 30 years his involvement with reporters Carl BernSTEIN and Bob Woodward, Felt admitted on May 31, 2005, to being the Watergate scandal’s whistleblower, “Deep Throat.”
Doing devilish deeds for the Jews is how folks like Felt get to the top of the heap. Felt’s deep state stuff is how he got to be Deputy Director of the FBI. Felt understood that deep state Jews were more powerful than Nixon.
As MA Rothschild infamously stated - Let me issue a nation’s currency and it won’t matter who the leaders are. Clever people with unlimited amounts of money can pull off nearly anything they set their mind to do.
Is Trump a useful idiot, a puppet who doesn’t know he is a puppet? Is Trump a Jew himself, a crypto Jew? Is Trump Jew-wise? Has Trump sold out to the Rothschild banksters who run the world? Is Trump in bed with Zionist Jews? Br Nathanael answered some of these questions at links like this:
You can get a clue about what the Jews do by what they DON’T say. Take JFK for example. There have been lots of Jews media documentaries, movies, shows on the Discovery channel, TLC, History channel, PBS, etc, blaming Castro, Italian Mafiosos, Lee Oswald, Russians, and others for the murder of JFK.
But the media never blames the Jews for killing JFK. Never! The Jews media blames it on everybody but Jews. That’s just one more clue about who was behind the JFK assassination.
Somehow, Mystery Babylon - the Zionist Jews - will be overthrown as foretold in prophecy. But for Trump to be part of that overthrow seems unlikely because Trump was put in office by such Zionist Jews as Adelson and those identified in the RJN link above.
Regarding your comments as to Lubavitch rabbis and Bush and such have a view that ‘would behead Christians (idolaters in their view’.
Also, you wonder if President Trump on America’s side or theirs and why Trump allowed his son in law, Jared Kushner, of his to be allowed security clearance so that he can go to the President’s security briefings?
You say, ‘It is frightening; chilling, to put it mildly’.
Thank you for your statements. All who claim to be Christians as well as those who are looking at the political implications, should note this in 2 John 1:9-11:
‘Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of the Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son
‘If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; for the man who greets him shares in his evil deeds’.
It is unwise to be ‘in bed’ with such as you portray in your comment.
All +BN’s Family.
Extreme Liberals (likes of R.A. Iger & co.) dishonour Disney.
America’s Deep South honour him.
Br. Nat, I couldn’t agree with you more.
Trump needs to rid his cabinet of the swamp slime and kick his Jewish son-in-law, Jared Kushner, out of the White House and strip him of all security clearances.
As I said in a comment to Mike S. King of TomatoBubble.com, Trump has to fire the neocon McMaster and bring back Mike Flynn as his National Security Advisor.
Flynn was the best man for that job, in my opinion, and speaking with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak was part of his job. VP Mike Pence should’ve kept his mouth shut and Trump should’ve never accepted Flynn’s resignation. That was a cowardly act on The Donald’s part.
Sec State Rex Tillerson has turned out to be one of the Cabinet members who’ve been draining the swamp from their departments - clearing the Obama holdovers en masse from Foggy Bottom. Trump was smart to keep him.
Right now, the one Cabinet member the Jews have their evil eyes on is Attorney General Jeff Sessions, accusing him of “illegal” meetings with Kislyak. Sessions was a US Senator and a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee at that time; thus, those charges are BOGUS.
It was part of Sessions’ job to meet with Russian diplomats and officials, and Kislyak was one of them. Jews such as Schumer and Franken want Sessions to resign, just as they wanted Flynn to resign, for doing their jobs.
And, already, Sessions had to recuse himself from investigating anything that had to do with Russia “hacking” the 2016 elections. Trump knows that if Sessions is forced to resign, his Administration’s finished, and this is why he’s defending his AG and going after the trash that’s targeting him.
More importantly, Trump has to arrest and extradite Gyorgy Schwartz aka George Soros to Russia, as Putin had requested .. This would solve a huge problem, since Soros has been instigating the anti-trump demonstrations and riots all across the country.
God bless you now and forever.
I am on the fence about Trump, is he part of the deep state?
So far I can not tell. Im hoping he’s not, but only time will tell, I guess.
Wikileaks Press Release: Vault 7: CIA Hacking Tools Revealed
Today, Tuesday 7 March 2017, WikiLeaks begins its new series of leaks on the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. Code-named “Vault 7″ by WikiLeaks, it is the largest ever publication of confidential documents on the agency.
The first full part of the series, “Year Zero”, comprises 8,761 documents and files from an isolated, high-security network situated inside the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence in Langley, Virgina.
It follows an introductory disclosure last month of CIA targeting French political parties and candidates in the lead up to the 2012 presidential election.
Recently, the CIA lost control of the majority of its hacking arsenal including malware, viruses, trojans, weaponized “zero day” exploits, malware remote control systems and associated documentation.
This extraordinary collection, which amounts to more than several hundred million lines of code, gives its possessor the entire hacking capacity of the CIA. The archive appears to have been circulated among former U.S. government hackers and contractors in an unauthorized manner, one of whom has provided WikiLeaks with portions of the archive.
“Year Zero” introduces the scope and direction of the CIA’s global covert hacking program, its malware arsenal and dozens of “zero day” weaponized exploits against a wide range of U.S. and European company products, include Apple’s iPhone, Google’s Android and Microsoft’s Windows and even Samsung TVs, which are turned into covert microphones.
Since 2001 the CIA has gained political and budgetary preeminence over the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA). The CIA found itself building not just its now infamous drone fleet, but a very different type of covert, globe-spanning force — its own substantial fleet of hackers.
The agency’s hacking division freed it from having to disclose its often controversial operations to the NSA (its primary bureaucratic rival) in order to draw on the NSA’s hacking capacities.
By the end of 2016, the CIA’s hacking division, which formally falls under the agency’s Center for Cyber Intelligence (CCI), had over 5000 registered users and had produced more than a thousand hacking systems, trojans, viruses, and other “weaponized” malware.
Such is the scale of the CIA’s undertaking that by 2016, its hackers had utilized more code than that used to run Facebook.
The CIA had created, in effect, its “own NSA” with even less accountability and without publicly answering the question as to whether such a massive budgetary spend on duplicating the capacities of a rival agency could be justified.
In a statement to WikiLeaks the source details policy questions that they say urgently need to be debated in public, including whether the CIA’s hacking capabilities exceed its mandated powers and the problem of public oversight of the agency.
The source wishes to initiate a public debate about the security, creation, use, proliferation and democratic control of cyberweapons.
Once a single cyber ‘weapon’ is ‘loose’ it can spread around the world in seconds, to be used by rival states, cyber mafia and teenage hackers alike.
Julian Assange, WikiLeaks editor stated that “There is an extreme proliferation risk in the development of cyber ‘weapons’. Comparisons can be drawn between the uncontrolled proliferation of such ‘weapons’, which results from the inability to contain them combined with their high market value, and the global arms trade.
But the significance of “Year Zero” goes well beyond the choice between cyberwar and cyberpeace. The disclosure is also exceptional from a political, legal and forensic perspective.”
Wikileaks has carefully reviewed the “Year Zero” disclosure and published substantive CIA documentation while avoiding the distribution of ‘armed’ cyberweapons until a consensus emerges on the technical and political nature of the CIA’s program and how such ‘weapons’ should analyzed, disarmed and published.
Wikileaks has also decided to redact and anonymise some identifying information in “Year Zero” for in depth analysis.
These redactions include ten of thousands of CIA targets and attack machines throughout Latin America, Europe and the United States.
While we are aware of the imperfect results of any approach chosen, we remain committed to our publishing model and note that the quantity of published pages in “Vault 7″ part one (“Year Zero”) already eclipses the total number of pages published over the first three years of the Edward Snowden NSA leaks.
CIA malware targets iPhone, Android, smart TVs
CIA malware and hacking tools are built by EDG (Engineering Development Group), a software development group within CCI (Center for Cyber Intelligence), a department belonging to the CIA’s DDI (Directorate for Digital Innovation).
The DDI is one of the five major directorates of the CIA (see this organizational chart of the CIA for more details).
The EDG is responsible for the development, testing and operational support of all backdoors, exploits, malicious payloads, trojans, viruses and any other kind of malware used by the CIA in its covert operations world-wide.
The increasing sophistication of surveillance techniques has drawn comparisons with George Orwell’s 1984, but “Weeping Angel”, developed by the CIA’s Embedded Devices Branch (EDB), which infests smart TVs, transforming them into covert microphones, is surely its most emblematic realization.
The attack against Samsung smart TVs was developed in cooperation with the United Kingdom’s MI5/BTSS.
After infestation, Weeping Angel places the target TV in a ‘Fake-Off’ mode, so that the owner falsely believes the TV is off when it is on. In ‘Fake-Off’ mode the TV operates as a bug, recording conversations in the room and sending them over the Internet to a covert CIA server.
As of October 2014 the CIA was also looking at infecting the vehicle control systems used by modern cars and trucks. The purpose of such control is not specified, but it would permit the CIA to engage in nearly undetectable assassinations.
The CIA’s Mobile Devices Branch (MDB) developed numerous attacks to remotely hack and control popular smart phones.
Infected phones can be instructed to send the CIA the user’s geolocation, audio and text communications as well as covertly activate the phone’s camera and microphone.
Despite iPhone’s minority share (14.5%) of the global smart phone market in 2016, a specialized unit in the CIA’s Mobile Development Branch produces malware to infest, control and exfiltrate data from iPhones and other Apple products running iOS, such as iPads.
CIA’s arsenal includes numerous local and remote “zero days” developed by CIA or obtained from GCHQ, NSA, FBI or purchased from cyber arms contractors such as Baitshop.
The disproportionate focus on iOS may be explained by the popularity of the iPhone among social, political, diplomatic and business elites.
A similar unit targets Google’s Android which is used to run the majority of the world’s smart phones (~85%) including Samsung, HTC and Sony. 1.15 billion Android powered phones were sold last year.
“Year Zero” shows that as of 2016 the CIA had 24 “weaponized” Android “zero days” which it has developed itself and obtained from GCHQ, NSA and cyber arms contractors.
These techniques permit the CIA to bypass the encryption of WhatsApp, Signal, Telegram, Wiebo, Confide and Cloackman by hacking the “smart” phones that they run on and collecting audio and message traffic before encryption is applied.
CIA malware targets Windows, OSx, Linux, routers
The CIA also runs a very substantial effort to infect and control Microsoft Windows users with its malware.
This includes multiple local and remote weaponized “zero days”, air gap jumping viruses such as “Hammer Drill” which infects software distributed on CD/DVDs, infectors for removable media such as USBs, systems to hide data in images or in covert disk areas ( “Brutal Kangaroo”) and to keep its malware infestations going.
Many of these infection efforts are pulled together by the CIA’s Automated Implant Branch (AIB), which has developed several attack systems for automated infestation and control of CIA malware, such as “Assassin” and “Medusa”.
Attacks against Internet infrastructure and webservers are developed by the CIA’s Network Devices Branch (NDB).
The CIA has developed automated multi-platform malware attack and control systems covering Windows, Mac OS X, Solaris, Linux and more, such as EDB’s “HIVE” and the related “Cutthroat” and “Swindle” tools, which are described in the examples section below.
CIA ‘hoarded’ vulnerabilities (”zero days”)
In the wake of Edward Snowden’s leaks about the NSA, the U.S. technology industry secured a commitment from the Obama administration that the executive would disclose on an ongoing basis — rather than hoard — serious vulnerabilities, exploits, bugs or “zero days” to Apple, Google, Microsoft, and other US-based manufacturers.
Serious vulnerabilities not disclosed to the manufacturers places huge swathes of the population and critical infrastructure at risk to foreign intelligence or cyber criminals who independently discover or hear rumors of the vulnerability.
If the CIA can discover such vulnerabilities so can others.
The U.S. government’s commitment to the Vulnerabilities Equities Process came after significant lobbying by US technology companies, who risk losing their share of the global market over real and perceived hidden vulnerabilities.
The government stated that it would disclose all pervasive vulnerabilities discovered after 2010 on an ongoing basis.
“Year Zero” documents show that the CIA breached the Obama administration’s commitments.
Many of the vulnerabilities used in the CIA’s cyber arsenal are pervasive and some may already have been found by rival intelligence agencies or cyber criminals.
As an example, specific CIA malware revealed in “Year Zero” is able to penetrate, infest and control both the Android phone and iPhone software that runs or has run presidential Twitter accounts.
The CIA attacks this software by using undisclosed security vulnerabilities (”zero days”) possessed by the CIA but if the CIA can hack these phones then so can everyone else who has obtained or discovered the vulnerability.
As long as the CIA keeps these vulnerabilities concealed from Apple and Google (who make the phones) they will not be fixed, and the phones will remain hackable.
The same vulnerabilities exist for the population at large, including the U.S. Cabinet, Congress, top CEOs, system administrators, security officers and engineers.
By hiding these security flaws from manufacturers like Apple and Google the CIA ensures that it can hack everyone &mdsh; at the expense of leaving everyone hackable.
‘Cyberwar’ programs are a serious proliferation risk
Cyber ‘weapons’ are not possible to keep under effective control.
While nuclear proliferation has been restrained by the enormous costs and visible infrastructure involved in assembling enough fissile material to produce a critical nuclear mass, cyber ‘weapons’, once developed, are very hard to retain.
Cyber ‘weapons’ are in fact just computer programs which can be pirated like any other. Since they are entirely comprised of information they can be copied quickly with no marginal cost.
Securing such ‘weapons’ is particularly difficult since the same people who develop and use them have the skills to exfiltrate copies without leaving traces — sometimes by using the very same ‘weapons’ against the organizations that contain them.
There are substantial price incentives for government hackers and consultants to obtain copies since there is a global “vulnerability market” that will pay hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars for copies of such ‘weapons’.
Similarly, contractors and companies who obtain such ‘weapons’ sometimes use them for their own purposes, obtaining advantage over their competitors in selling ‘hacking’ services.
Over the last three years the United States intelligence sector, which consists of government agencies such as the CIA and NSA and their contractors, such as Booz Allan Hamilton, has been subject to unprecedented series of data exfiltrations by its own workers.
A number of intelligence community members not yet publicly named have been arrested or subject to federal criminal investigations in separate incidents.
Most visibly, on February 8, 2017 a U.S. federal grand jury indicted Harold T. Martin III with 20 counts of mishandling classified information.
The Department of Justice alleged that it seized some 50,000 gigabytes of information from Harold T. Martin III that he had obtained from classified programs at NSA and CIA, including the source code for numerous hacking tools.
Once a single cyber ‘weapon’ is ‘loose’ it can spread around the world in seconds, to be used by peer states, cyber mafia and teenage hackers alike.
U.S. Consulate in Frankfurt is a covert CIA hacker base
In addition to its operations in Langley, Virginia the CIA also uses the U.S. consulate in Frankfurt as a covert base for its hackers covering Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
CIA hackers operating out of the Frankfurt consulate ( “Center for Cyber Intelligence Europe” or CCIE) are given diplomatic (”black”) passports and State Department cover.
Once in Frankfurt CIA hackers can travel without further border checks to the 25 European countries that are part of the Shengen open border area — including France, Italy and Switzerland.
A number of the CIA’s electronic attack methods are designed for physical proximity. These attack methods are able to penetrate high security networks that are disconnected from the internet, such as police record database.
How the CIA dramatically increased proliferation risks
In what is surely one of the most astounding intelligence own-goals in living memory, the CIA structured its classification regime such that for the most market valuable part of “Vault 7″ — the CIA’s weaponized malware (implants + zero days), Listening Posts (LP), and Command and Control (C2) systems — the agency has little legal recourse.
The CIA made these systems unclassified.
Why the CIA chose to make its cyberarsenal unclassified reveals how concepts developed for military use do not easily crossover to the ‘battlefield’ of cyber ‘war’.
To attack its targets, the CIA usually requires that its implants communicate with their control programs over the internet.
If CIA implants, Command & Control and Listening Post software were classified, then CIA officers could be prosecuted or dismissed for violating rules that prohibit placing classified information onto the Internet.
Consequently the CIA has secretly made most of its cyber spying/war code unclassified. The U.S. government is not able to assert copyright either, due to restrictions in the U.S. Constitution. This means that cyber ‘arms’ manufactures and computer hackers can freely “pirate” these ‘weapons’ if they are obtained. The CIA has primarily had to rely on obfuscation to protect its malware secrets.
Conventional weapons such as missiles may be fired at the enemy (i.e into an unsecured area). Proximity to or impact with the target detonates the ordnance including its classified parts. Hence military personnel do not violate classification rules by firing ordnance with classified parts. Ordnance will likely explode. If it does not, that is not the operator’s intent.
Over the last decade U.S. hacking operations have been increasingly dressed up in military jargon to tap into Department of Defense funding streams. For instance, attempted “malware injections” (commercial jargon) or “implant drops” (NSA jargon) are being called “fires” as if a weapon was being fired. However the analogy is questionable.
Unlike bullets, bombs or missiles, most CIA malware is designed to live for days or even years after it has reached its ‘target’. CIA malware does not “explode on impact” but rather permanently infests its target.
In order to infect target’s device, copies of the malware must be placed on the target’s devices, giving physical possession of the malware to the target.
To exfiltrate data back to the CIA or to await further instructions the malware must communicate with CIA Command & Control (C2) systems placed on internet connected servers. But such servers are typically not approved to hold classified information, so CIA command and control systems are also made unclassified.
A successful ‘attack’ on a target’s computer system is more like a series of complex stock maneuvers in a hostile take-over bid or the careful planting of rumors in order to gain control over an organization’s leadership rather than the firing of a weapons system.
If there is a military analogy to be made, the infestation of a target is perhaps akin to the execution of a whole series of military maneuvers against the target’s territory including observation, infiltration, occupation and exploitation.
Evading forensics and anti-virus…
****UMBRAGE [Program: gives CIA magical ability to imitate Russian hackers. Interesting, no, товарищ (tovarishch - comrade)?
The CIA’s hand crafted hacking techniques pose a problem for the agency.
Each technique it has created forms a “fingerprint” that can be used by forensic investigators to attribute multiple different attacks to the same entity.
This is analogous to finding the same distinctive knife wound on multiple separate murder victims.
The unique wounding style creates suspicion that a single murderer is responsible. As soon one murder in the set is solved then the other murders also find likely attribution.
****The CIA’s Remote Devices Branch’s UMBRAGE group collects and maintains a substantial library of attack techniques ’stolen’ from malware produced in other states including the Russian Federation.[!?!?!]
With UMBRAGE and related projects the CIA cannot only increase its total number of attack types but also misdirect attribution by leaving behind the “fingerprints” of the groups that the attack techniques were stolen from.
UMBRAGE components cover keyloggers, password collection, webcam capture, data destruction, persistence, privilege escalation, stealth, anti-virus (PSP) avoidance and survey techniques.
HIVE is a multi-platform CIA malware suite and its associated control software.
The project provides customizable implants for Windows, Solaris, MikroTik (used in internet routers) and Linux platforms and a Listening Post (LP)/Command and Control (C2) infrastructure to communicate with these implants.
The implants are configured to communicate via HTTPS with the webserver of a cover domain; each operation utilizing these implants has a separate cover domain and the infrastructure can handle any number of cover domains.
Each cover domain resolves to an IP address that is located at a commercial VPS (Virtual Private Server) provider. The public-facing server forwards all incoming traffic via a VPN to a ‘Blot’ server that handles actual connection requests from clients.
It is setup for optional SSL client authentication: if a client sends a valid client certificate (only implants can do that), the connection is forwarded to the ‘Honeycomb’ toolserver that communicates with the implant; if a valid certificate is missing (which is the case if someone tries to open the cover domain website by accident), the traffic is forwarded to a cover server that delivers an unsuspicious looking website.
The Honeycomb toolserver receives exfiltrated information from the implant; an operator can also task the implant to execute jobs on the target computer, so the toolserver acts as a C2 (command and control) server for the implant.
Similar functionality (though limited to Windows) is provided by the RickBobby project.
See the classified user and developer guides for HIVE.

***Rescued from the Alice through the Looking Glass Memory Hole:
CNN/January 3: Former CIA director James Woolsey, an adviser to Trump on national security issues, told CNN’s Jim Sciutto that determining who was behind the hacks is difficult, but that he believes the Russians — and possibly others — were involved.
“I think the Russians were in there, but it doesn’t mean other people weren’t, too,” he said. “It’s often not foolproof to say who it is because it is possible and sometimes easy to hide your tracks. There’s lots of tricks.”
Woolsey’s comments come even as Trump and his aides continue to cast doubt on the links between Russia and recent hacks against Democrats, while US intelligence officials say that newly identified “digital fingerprints” indicate Moscow was behind the intrusions.
One official told CNN the administration has traced the hack to the specific keyboards — which featured Cyrillic characters — that were used to construct the malware code, adding that the equipment leaves “digital fingerprints” and, in the case of the recent hacks, those prints point to the Russian government.
In response to the US information, Kremlin spokesman Dimitri Peskov told CNN: “I don’t understand what this means exactly, but Cyrillic characters can be used everywhere. Once again, I reject any possibility that official Russia can be involved in any way.”

True tales from RussianDressingGate about the “deep state”
Why Crowdstrike’s Russian Hacking Story Fell Apart- Say Hello to Fancy Bear
George Eliason [he lives in Ukraine-Kj]
[Preface by Washington’s Blog: As patriotic Americans, we are most concerned about what’s best for the U.S. If it’s Ukrainians – more than Russians – who are interfering with our country, we have a right to know. We are for uncovering the truth, wherever that may lead. As such, we bring you alternative voices and on-the-ground reporting. Then we let you decide what you believe.]
In the wake of the JAR-16-20296 dated December 29, 2016 about hacking and influencing the 2016 election, the need for real evidence is clear. The joint report adds nothing substantial to the October 7th report. It relies on proofs provided by the cyber security firm Crowdstrike that is clearly not on par with intelligence findings or evidence. At the top of the report is an “as is” statement showing this.
The difference between Dmitri Alperovitch’s claims which are reflected in JAR-1620296 and this article is that enough evidence is provided to warrant an investigation of specific parties for the DNC hacks. The real story involves specific anti-American actors that need to be investigated for real crimes.
For instance, the malware used was an out-dated version just waiting to be found. The one other interesting point is that the Russian malware called Grizzly Steppe is from Ukraine.
How did Crowdstrike miss this when it is their business to know?
Later in this article you’ll meet and know a little more about the real “Fancy Bear and Cozy Bear.” The bar for identification set by Crowdstrike has never been able to get beyond words like probably, maybe, could be, or should be, in their attribution.
The article is lengthy because the facts need to be in one place. The bar Dimitri Alperovitch set for identifying the hackers involved is that low. Other than asking America to trust them, how many solid facts has Alperovitch provided to back his claim of Russian involvement?
The December 29th JAR adds a flowchart that shows how a basic phishing hack is performed. It doesn’t add anything significant beyond that. Noticeably, they use both their designation APT 28 and APT 29 as well as the Crowdstrike labels of Fancy Bear and Cozy Bear separately.
This is important because information from outside intelligence agencies has the value of rumor or unsubstantiated information at best according to policy.
Usable intelligence needs to be free from partisan politics and verifiable. Intel agencies noted back in the early 90’s that every private actor in the information game was radically political.
The Hill.com article about Russia hacking the electric grid is a perfect example of why this intelligence is political and not taken seriously. If any proof of Russian involvement existed, the US would be at war. Under current laws of war, there would be no difference between an attack on the power grid or a missile strike.
According to the Hill “Private security firms provided more detailed forensic analysis, which the FBI and DHS said Thursday correlated with the IC’s findings.
“The Joint Analysis Report recognizes the excellent work undertaken by security companies and private sector network owners and operators, and provides new indicators of compromise and malicious infrastructure identified during the course of investigations and incident response,” read a statement. The report identities two Russian intelligence groups already named by CrowdStrike and other private security firms.””
In an interview with Washingtonsblog, William Binney, the creator of the NSA global surveillance system said “I expected to see the IP’s or other signatures of APT’s 28/29 [the entities which the U.S. claims hacked the Democratic emails] and where they were located and how/when the data got transferred to them from DNC/HRC [i.e. Hillary Rodham Clinton]/etc. They seem to have been following APT 28/29 since at least 2015, so, where are they?”
According to the latest Washington Post story, Crowdstrike’s CEO tied a group his company dubbed “Fancy Bear” to targeting Ukrainian artillery positions in Debaltsevo as well as across the Ukrainian civil war front for the past 2 years.
Alperovitch states in many articles the Ukrainians were using an Android app to target the self-proclaimed Republics positions and that hacking this app was what gave targeting data to the armies in Donbass instead.
Alperovitch first gained notice when he was the VP in charge of threat research with McAfee. Asked to comment on Alperovitch’s discovery of Russian hacks on Larry King, John McAfee had this to say. “Based on all of his experience, McAfee does not believe that Russians were behind the hacks on the Democratic National Committee (DNC), John Podesta’s emails, and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.
As he told RT, “if it looks like the Russians did it, then I can guarantee you it was not the Russians.”
How does Crowdstrike’s story part with reality? First is the admission that it is probably, maybe, could be Russia hacking the DNC.
“Intelligence agencies do not have specific intelligence showing officials in the Kremlin ‘directing’ the identified individuals to pass the Democratic emails to Wiki Leaks.”
The public evidence never goes beyond the word possibility. While never going beyond that or using facts, Crowdstrike insists that it’s Russia behind both Clinton’s and the Ukrainian losses. NBC carried the story because one of the partners in Crowdstrike is also a consultant for NBC.
According to NBC the story reads like this.
“The company, Crowdstrike, was hired by the DNC to investigate the hack and issued a report publicly attributing it to Russian intelligence. One of Crowdstrike’s senior executives is Shawn Henry, a former senior FBI official who consults for NBC News.
“But the Russians used the app to turn the tables on their foes, Crowdstrike says. Once a Ukrainian soldier downloaded it on his Android phone, the Russians were able to eavesdrop on his communications and determine his position through geo-location. In June, Crowdstrike went public with its findings that two separate Russian intelligence agencies had hacked the DNC.
“One, which Crowdstrike and other researchers call Cozy Bear, is believed to be linked to Russia’s CIA, known as the FSB. The other, known as Fancy Bear, is believed to be tied to the military intelligence agency, called the GRU.”
The information is so certain the level of proof never rises above “believed to be.”
According to the December 12th Intercept article “Most importantly,” the Post adds that “intelligence agencies do not have specific intelligence showing officials in the Kremlin ‘directing’ the identified individuals to pass the Democratic emails to WikiLeaks.”
Because Ukrainian soldiers are using a smartphone app they activate their geolocation to use it. Targeting is from location to location. The app would need the current user location to make it work. In 2015 I wrote an article that showed many of the available open source tools that geolocate, and track people. They even show street view.
This means that using simple means, someone with freeware or an online website, and not a military budget can look at what you are seeing at any given moment.
Where Crowdstrike fails is insisting people believe that the code they see is (a) an advanced way to geolocate and (b) it was how a state with large resources would do it.
Would you leave a calling card where you would get caught and fined through sanctions or worse? If you use an anonymous online resource at least Crowdstrike won’t believe you are Russian and possibly up to something.”
Using open source tools this has been going on for years in the private sector. For geolocation purposes, your smartphone is one of the greatest tools to use. Finding and following you has never been easier. Let’s face it if you are going to stalk someone, “street view” on a map is the next best thing to being there.
In the following video, the software hacks your modem. It’s only one step from your phone or computer.”
If you read that article and watch the video you’ll see that using “geo-stalker” is a better choice if you are on a low budget or no budget. Should someone tell the Russians they overpaid?
According to Alperovitch, the smartphone app plotted targets in about 15 seconds. This means that there is only a small window to get information this way.
Using the open source tools I wrote about previously, you could track your targets all-day. In 2014, most Ukrainian forces were using social media regularly. It would be easy to maintain a map of their locations and track them individually.
From my research into those tools, someone using Python scripts would find it easy to take photos, listen to conversations, turn on GPS, or even turn the phone on when they chose to. Going a step further than Alperovitch, without the help of the Russian government, GRU, or FSB, anyone could take control of the drones Ukraine is fond of flying and land them.
Or they could download the footage the drones are taking. It’s copy and paste at that point. Would you bother the FSB, GRU, or Vladimir Putin with the details or just do it?
In the WaPo article Alperovitch states “The Fancy Bear crew evidently hacked the app, allowing the GRU to use the phone’s GPS coordinates to track the Ukrainian troops’ position. In that way, the Russian military could then target the Ukrainian army with artillery and other weaponry.
“Ukrainian brigades operating in eastern Ukraine were on the front lines of the conflict with Russian-backed separatist forces during the early stages of the conflict in late 2014, CrowdStrike noted. By late 2014, Russian forces in the region numbered about 10,000. The Android app was useful in helping the Russian troops locate Ukrainian artillery positions.”
In late 2014, I personally did the only invasive passport and weapons checks that I know of during the Ukrainian civil war. I spent days looking for the Russian army every major publication said were attacking Ukraine.
The keyword Cyber Security industry leader Alperovitch used is “evidently.” Crowdstrike noted that in late 2014, there were 10,000 Russian forces in the region.
When I did the passport and weapons check, it was under the condition there would be no telephone calls. We went where I wanted to go. We stopped when I said to stop. I checked the documents and the weapons with no obstacles.
The weapons check was important because Ukraine was stating that Russia was giving Donbass modern weapons at the time. Each weapon is stamped with a manufacture date. The results are in the articles above. The government in Kiev agreed with my findings throughout 2014 and 2015.
There were and are no Russian troops fighting in Donbass regardless of what Mr. Alperovitch asserts. There are some Russian volunteers which I have covered in detail.Based on my findings which the CIA would call hard evidence, almost all the fighters had Ukrainian passports. There are volunteers from other countries.
In Debaltsevo today, I would question Alperovitch’s assertion of Russian troops based on the fact the passports will be Ukrainian and reflect my earlier findings. There is no possibly, could be, might be, about it.
The SBU, Olexander Turchinov, and the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense all agree that Crowdstrike is dead wrong in this assessment. Although subtitles aren’t on it, the former Commandant of Ukrainian Army Headquarters thanks God Russia never invaded or Ukraine would have been in deep trouble.
How could Dimitri Alperovitch and Crowdstrike be this wrong on easily checked detail and still get this much media attention? Could the investment made by Google and some very large players have anything to do with the media Crowdstrike is causing?
In an interview with PBS Newshour on December 22nd 2016, Dmitri Alperovitch finally produced the hard evidence he has for Russian involvement clearly. To be fair, he did state it several times before. It just didn’t resonate or the media and US intelligence agencies weren’t listening.
According to Alperovitch, the CEO of a $150 million dollar cyber security company “And when you think about, well, who would be interested in targeting Ukraine artillerymen in eastern Ukraine who has interest in hacking the Democratic Party, Russia government comes to mind, but specifically, Russian military that would have operational over forces in the Ukraine and would target these artillerymen.”
That statement is most of the proof of Russian involvement he has. That’s it, that’s all the CIA, FBI have to go on. It’s why they can’t certify the intelligence. It’s why they can’t get beyond the threshold of maybe.
Woodruff then asked two important questions. She asked if Crowdstrike was still working for the DNC. Alperovitch responded “We’re protecting them going forward. The investigation is closed in terms of what happened there. But certainly, we’ve seen the campaigns, political organizations are continued to be targeted, and they continue to hire us and use our technology to protect themselves.”
Based on the evidence he presented Woodruff, there is no need to investigate further? Obviously, there is no need, the money is rolling in.
Second and most important Judy Woodruff asked if there were any questions about conflicts of interest, how he would answer? This is where Dmitri Alperovitch’s story starts to unwind.
His response was “Well, this report was not about the DNC. This report was about information we uncovered about what these Russian actors were doing in eastern Ukraine in terms of locating these artillery units of the Ukrainian army and then targeting them. So, what we just did is said that it looks exactly as the same to the evidence we’ve already uncovered from the DNC, linking the two together.”
Why is this reasonable statement going to take his story off the rails? First, let’s look at the facts surrounding his evidence and then look at the real conflicts of interest involved.
While carefully evading the question, he neglects to state his conflicts of interest are worthy of a DOJ investigation. Can you mislead the federal government about national security issues and not get investigated yourself? If Alperovitch’s evidence is all there is, then the US government owes some large apologies to Russia.
After showing who is targeting Ukrainian artillerymen, we’ll look at what might be a criminal conspiracy.
Crowdstrike CEO Dmitri Alperovitch story about Russian hacks that cost Hillary Clinton the election was broadsided by the SBU (Ukrainian Intelligence and Security) in Ukraine.
If Dimitri Alperovitch is working for Ukrainian Intelligence and is providing intelligence to 17 US Intelligence Agencies is it a conflict of interest?
Ukraine has been screaming for the US to start a war with Russia for the past 2 1/2 years. Using facts accepted by leaders on both sides of the conflict, the main proof Crowdstrike shows for evidence doesn’t just unravel, it falls apart.
Is Ukrainian Intelligence trying to invent a reason for the US to take a hard-line stance against Russia? Are they using Crowdstrike to carry this out?
Real Fancy Bear?
Meet the real Fancy Bear and Cozy Bear, part of the groups that are targeting Ukrainian positions for the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics.
These people were so tech savvy they didn’t know the Ukrainian SBU (Ukrainian CIA/internal security) records every phone call and most internet use in Ukraine and Donbass. Donbass still uses Ukrainian phone and internet services.
These are normal people fighting back against private volunteer armies that target their homes, schools, and hospitals. The private volunteer armies like Pravy Sektor, Donbas Battalion, Azov, and Aidar have been cited for atrocities like child rape, torture, murder, and kidnapping.
That just gets the ball rolling. These are a large swath of the Ukrainian servicemen Crowdstrike hopes to protect.
This story which just aired on Ukrainian news channel TCN shows the SBU questioning and arresting some of what they call an army of people in the Ukrainian-controlled areas. This news video shows people in Toretsk that provided targeting information to Donbass and people probably caught up in the net accidentally.
This is a civil war and people supporting either side are on both sides of the contact line. The SBU is awestruck because there are hundreds if not thousands of people helping to target the private volunteer armies supported by Ukrainian-Americans.
The first person they show on the video is a woman named Olga Lubochka. On the video her voice is heard from a recorded call saying ” In the field, on the left about 130 degrees. Aim and you’ll get it.” and then ” Oh, you hit it so hard you leveled it to the ground.” “Am I going to get a medal for this?”
Other people caught up in the raid claim and probably were only calling friends they know. It’s common for people to call and tell their family about what is going on around them. This has been a staple in the war especially in outlying villages for people aligned with both sides of the conflict. A neighbor calls his friend and says “you won’t believe what I just saw.”
Another “fancy bear,” Alexander Schevchenko was caught calling friends and telling them that armored personnel carriers had just driven by. Anatoli Prima, father of a DNR (Donetsk People’s Republic) soldier was asked to find out what unit was there and how many artillery pieces.
One woman providing information about fuel and incoming equipment has a husband fighting on the opposite side in Gorlovka.
Gorlovka is a major city that’s been under artillery attack since 2014. For the past 2 1/2 years, she has remained in their home in Toretsk. According to the video, he’s vowed to take no prisoners when they rescue the area. When asked why they hate Ukraine so much, one responded that they just wanted things to go back to what they were like before the coup in February 2014.
Another said they were born in the Soviet Union and didn’t like what was going on in Kiev. At the heart of this statement is the anti- OUN, antinationalist sentiment that most people living in Ukraine feel.
The OUNb Bandera killed millions of people in Ukraine, including starving 3 million Soviet soldiers to death. The new Ukraine was founded in 1991 by OUN nationalists outside the fledgling country.
Is giving misleading or false information to 17 US Intelligence Agencies a crime?
If it’s done by a cyber security industry leader like Crowdstrike should that be investigated?
If unwinding the story from the “targeting of Ukrainian volunteers” side isn’t enough, we should look at this from the American perspective.
How did the Russia influencing the election and DNC hack story evolve?
Who’s involved? Does this pose conflicts of interest for Dmitri Alperovitch and Crowdstrike? And let’s face it, a hacking story isn’t complete until real hackers with the skills, motivation, and reason are exposed.
In the last article exploring the DNC hacks the focus was on the Chalupas. The article focused on Alexandra, Andrea, and Irene Chalupa. Their participation in the DNC hack story is what brought it to international attention in the first place.
According to journalist and DNC activist Andrea Chalupa on her Facebook page “After Chalupa sent the email to Miranda (which mentions that she had invited this reporter to a meeting with Ukrainian journalists in Washington), it triggered high-level concerns within the DNC, given the sensitive nature of her work.
“That’s when we knew it was the Russians,” said a Democratic Party source who has been directly involved in the internal probe into the hacked emails. In order to stem the damage, the source said, “we told her to stop her research.”” July 25, 2016
If she was that close to the investigation Crowdstrike did how credible is she? Her sister Alexandra was named one of 16 people that shaped the election by Yahoo news. The DNC hacking investigation done by Crowdstrike concluded hacking was done by Russian actors based on the work done by Alexandra Chalupa?
That is the conclusion of her sister Andrea Chalupa and obviously enough for Crowdstrike to make the Russian government connection. These words mirror Dimitri Alperovitch’s identification process in his interview with PBS Judy Woodruff.
How close is Dimitri Alperovitch to DNC officials? Close enough professionally he should have stepped down from an investigation that had the chance of throwing a presidential election in a new direction.
According to Esquire.com, Alperovitch has vetted speeches for Hillary Clinton about cyber security issues in the past. Because of his work on the Sony hack, President Barrack Obama personally called and said the measures taken were directly because of his work.
Still, this is not enough to show a conflict of interest. Alperovitch’s relationships with the Chalupas, radical groups, think tanks, Ukrainian propagandists, and Ukrainian state supported hackers do. When it all adds up and you see it together, we have found a Russian that tried hard to influence the outcome of the US presidential election in 2016.
In my previous article I showed in detail how the Chalupas fit into this. A brief bullet point review looks like this.
The Chalupas are not Democrat or Republican. They are OUNb. The OUNb worked hard to start a war between the USA and Russia for the last 50 years. According to the Ukrainian Weekly in a rare open statement of their existence in 2011, “Other statements were issued in the Ukrainian language by the leadership of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (B) and the International Conference in Support of Ukraine.
“The OUN (Bandera wing) called for”… What is OUNb Bandera? They follow the same political policy and platform that was developed in the 1930’s by Stepan Bandera.
When these people go to a Holocaust memorial they are celebrating both the dead and the OUNb SS that killed. There is no getting around this fact. The OUNb have no concept of democratic values and want an authoritarian fascism.
Alexandra Chalupa- According to the Ukrainian Weekly,… “The effort, known as Digital Miadan, gained momentum following the initial Twitter storms. Leading the effort were: Lara Chelak, Andrea Chalupa, Alexandra Chalupa, Constatin Kostenko and others.”
The Digital Maidan was also how they raised money for the coup. This was how the Ukrainian emigres bought the bullets that were used on Euromaidan.
Ukraine’s chubby nazi, Dima Yarosh stated openly he was taking money from the Ukrainian emigres during Euromaidan and Pravy Sektor still fundraises openly in North America.
The “Sniper Massacre” on the Maidan in Ukraine by Dr. Ivan Katchanovski, University of Ottowa shows clearly detailed evidence how the massacre happened.
It has Pravy Sektor confessions that show who created the “heavenly hundred”. Their admitted involvement as leaders of Digital Maidan by both Chalupas is a clear violation of the Neutrality Act and has up to a 25 year prison sentence attached to it because it ended in a coup.
Andrea Chalupa-2014, in a Huff Post article Sept. 1 2016, Andrea Chalupa described Sviatoslav Yurash as one of Ukraine’s important “dreamers.” He is a young activist that founded Euromaidan Press.
Beyond the gushing glow what she doesn’t say is who he actually is.
Sviatoslav Yurash was Dmitri Yarosh’s spokesman just after Maidan. He is a hardcore Ukrainian nationalist and was rewarded with the Deputy Director position for the UWC (Ukrainian World Congress) in Kiev.
In January, 2014 when he showed up at the Maidan protests he was 17 years old. He became the foreign language media representative for Vitali Klitschko, Arseni Yatsenyuk, and Oleh Tyahnybok. All press enquiries went through Yurash. To meet Dimitri Yurash you had to go through Sviatoslav Yurash as a Macleans reporter found out.
At 18 years old, Sviatoslav Yurash became the spokesman for Ministry of Defense of Ukraine under Andrei Paruby. He was Dimitri Yarosh’s spokesman and can be seen either behind Yarosh on videos at press conferences or speaking ahead of him to reporters.
From January 2014 onward, to speak to Dimitri Yarosh, you set up an appointment with Yurash.
Andrea Chalupa has worked with Yurash’s Euromaidan Press which is associated with Informnapalm.org and supplies the state level hackers for Ukraine. Irene Chalupa- Another involved Chalupa we need to cover to do the story justice is Irene Chalupa. From her bio– Irena Chalupa is a nonresident fellow with the Atlantic Council’s Dinu Patriciu Eurasia Center.
She is also a senior correspondent at Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL), where she has worked for more than twenty years.
Ms. Chalupa previously served as an editor for the Atlantic Council, where she covered Ukraine and Eastern Europe. Irena Chalupa is also the news anchor for Ukraine’s propaganda channel org. She is also a Ukrainian emigre leader.
According to Robert Parry’s article [link at Washington Blog website]: At the forefront of people that would have taken senior positions in a Clinton administration and especially in foreign policy are the Atlantic Council. Their main goal is still a major confrontation with nuclear-armed Russia.
The Atlantic Council is the think tank associated and supported by the CEEC (Central and Eastern European Coalition). The CEEC has only one goal which is war with Russia. Their question to candidates looking for their support in the election was “Are you willing to go to war with Russia?”
Hillary Clinton has received their unqualified support throughout the campaign. [Hillary has long been the darling of the Atlantic Council].
What does any of this have to do with Dimitri Alperovitch and Crowdstrike?
Since the Atlantic Council would have taken senior cabinet and policy positions, his own fellowship status at the Atlantic Council and relationship with Irene Chalupa creates a definite conflict of interest for Crowdstrike’s investigation.
Trump’s campaign was gaining ground and Clinton needed a boost. Had she won, would he have been in charge of the CIA, NSA, or Homeland Security?
When you put someone that has so much to gain in charge of an investigation that could change an election, that is a conflict of interest. If the think tank is linked heavily to groups that want war with Russia like the Atlantic Council and the CEEC, it opens up criminal conspiracy.
If the person in charge of the investigation is a fellow at the think tank that wants a major conflict with Russia it is a definite conflict of interest.
Both the Atlantic Council and clients stood to gain Cabinet and Policy positions based on how the result of his work affects the election. It clouds the results of the investigation. In Dmitri Alperovitch’s case, he found the perpetrator before he was positive there was a crime.
Alperovitch’s relationship with Andrea Chalupa’s efforts and Ukrainian intelligence groups is where things really heat up. Noted above she works with Euromaidanpress.com and Informnapalm.org which is the outlet for Ukrainian state-sponsored hackers.
When you look at Dimitri Alperovitch’s twitter relationships, you have to ask why the CEO of a $150 million dollar company like Crowdstrike follows Ukrainian InformNapalm and its hackers individually. There is a mutual relationship. When you add up his work for the OUNb, Ukraine, support for Ukraine’s Intelligence, and to the hackers it needs to be investigated to see if Ukraine is conspiring against the US government.
Alperovitch and Fancy Bear tweet each other?
Crowdstrike is also following their hack of a Russian government official after the DNC hack. It closely resembles the same method used with the DNC because it was an email hack.
Crowdstrike’s product line includes Falcon Host, Falcon Intelligence, Falcon Overwatch and Falcon DNS. Is it possible the hackers in Falcons Flame are another service Crowdstrike offers? Although this profile says Virginia, tweets are from the Sofia, Bulgaria time zone and he writes in Russian. Another curiosity considering the Fancy Bear source code is in Russian. This image shows Crowdstrike in their network.
Crowdstrike is part of Ukrainian nationalist hacker network
In an interview with Euromaidanpress these hackers say they have no need for the CIA. They consider the CIA amateurish. They also say they are not part of the Ukrainian military Cyberalliance is a quasi-organization with the participation of several groups – RUH8, Trinity, Falcon Flames, Cyberhunta. There are structures affiliated to the hackers – the Myrotvorets site, Informnapalm analytical agency.”
In the image it shows a network diagram of Crowdstrike following the Surkov leaks. The network communication goes through a secondary source. This is something you do when you don’t want to be too obvious. Here is another example of that.
Ukrainian Intelligence and the real Fancy Bear?
Although OSINT Academy sounds fairly innocuous, it’s the official twitter account for Ukraine’s Ministry of Information head Dimitri Zolotukin. It is also Ukrainian Intelligence. The Ministry of Information started the Peacekeeper or Myrotvorets website that geolocates journalists and other people for assassination. If you disagree with OUNb politics, you could be on the list.
Should someone tell Dimitri Alperovitch that Gerashchenko, who is now in charge of Peacekeeper recently threatened president-elect Donald Trump that he would put him on his “Peacemaker” site as a target? The same has been done with Silvio Berscaloni in the past.
Trying not to be obvious, the Head of Ukraine’s Information Ministry (UA Intelligence) tweeted something interesting that ties Alperovitch and Crowdstrike to the Ukrainian Intelligence hackers and the Information Ministry even tighter.
Trying to keep it hush hush?
This single tweet on a network chart shows that out of all the Ukrainian Ministry of Information Minister’s following, he only wanted the 3 hacking groups associated with both him and Alperovitch to get the tweet. Alperovitch’s story was received and not retweeted or shared. If this was just Alperovitch’s victory, it was a victory for Ukraine. It would be shared heavily.
If it was a victory for the hacking squad, it would be smart to keep it to themselves and not draw unwanted attention.
These same hackers are associated with Alexandra, Andrea, and Irene Chalupa through the portals and organizations they work with through their OUNb. The hackers are funded and directed by or through the same OUNb channels that Alperovitch is working for and with to promote the story of Russian hacking.
Pravy Sektor Hackers and Crowdstrike?
When you look at the image for the hacking group in the euromaidanpress article, one of the hackers identifies themselves as one of Dimitri Yarosh’s Pravy Sektor members by the Pravy Sektor sweatshirt they have on.
Noted above, Pravy Sektor admitted to killing the people at the Maidan protest and sparked the coup. Going further with the linked Euromaidanpress article the hackers say:
“Let’s understand that Ukrainian hackers and Russian hackers once constituted a single very powerful group. Ukrainian hackers have a rather high level of work.
“So the help of the USA… I don’t know, why would we need it? We have all the talent and special means for this. And I don’t think that the USA or any NATO country would make such sharp movements in international politics.”
What sharp movements in international politics have been made lately? Let me spell it out for the 17 US Intelligence Agencies so there is no confusion.
These state sponsored, Russian language hackers in Eastern European time zones have shown with the Surkov hack they have the tools and experience to hack states that are looking out for it. They are also laughing at US intel efforts.
The hackers also made it clear that they will do anything to serve Ukraine. Starting a war between Russia and the USA is the one way they could serve Ukraine best, and hurt Russia worst.
Given those facts, if the DNC hack was according to the criteria given by Alperovitch, both he and these hackers need to be investigated.
According to the Esquire interview “Alperovitch was deeply frustrated: He thought the government should tell the world what it knew. There is, of course, an element of the personal in his battle cry. “A lot of people who are born here don’t appreciate the freedoms we have, the opportunities we have, because they’ve never had it any other way,” he told me. “I have.”
While I agree patriotism is a great thing, confusing it with this kind of nationalism is not.
Alperovitch seems to think by serving OUNb Ukraine’s interests and delivering a conflict with Russia that is against American interests, he’s a patriot. He isn’t serving US interests. He’s definitely a Ukrainian patriot. Maybe he should move to Ukraine.
The evidence presented deserves investigation because it looks like the case for conflict of interest is the least Dimitri Alperovitch should look forward to. If these hackers are the real Cozy Bear and Fancy Bear, they really did make sharp movements in international politics.
By pawning it off on Russia, they made a worldwide embarrassment of an outgoing President of the United States and made the President Elect the suspect of rumor.
From the Observer.com, “Andrea Chalupa—the sister of DNC research staffer Alexandra Chalupa—claimed on social media, without any evidence, that despite Clinton conceding the election to Trump, the voting results need to be audited to because Clinton couldn’t have lost—it must have been Russia.
Chalupa hysterically tweeted to every politician on Twitter to audit the vote because of Russia and claimed the TV show The Americans, about two KGB spies living in America, is real.”
Quite possibly now the former UK Ambassador Craig Murry’s admission of being the involved party to “leaks” should be looked at.
“Now both Julian Assange and I have stated definitively the leak does not come from Russia. Do we credibly have access? Yes, very obviously. Very, very few people can be said to definitely have access to the source of the leak. The people saying it is not Russia are those who do have access.
“After access, you consider truthfulness. Do Julian Assange and I have a reputation for truthfulness?
“Well in 10 years not one of the tens of thousands of documents WikiLeaks has released has had its authenticity successfully challenged. As for me, I have a reputation for inconvenient truth telling.”
Morris has a very interesting letter from the Soviet union today explaining how Marshall Zukov put the lid on Jewish control in Russia in 1953.
Worth reading. I don’t know who is providing Morris with these letters. Just like CNN, he doesn’t give his sources but they give a new perspective.
Look at the power of these people to control the false historical and contemporary narrative we live under.
An article which paints Hitler in a neutral light and which historically accurate in depicting Lloyd George relationship with him has the comments section disabled after 1 comment!!
I’d like to thank Bro Nat for giving me the space to connect some serious Jewish/ISIS dots and scoop Veterans Today.
Months ago I wrote on this web site that I had noticed that ISIS was driving Toyoto Land Crusiers with 50 calibre machine guns on the back (called technicals) and that the main distributor of Toyota Land Cruisers in the Middle East was the $billionaire Texas Jew Tommy Friedkin. I said it would be simple to trace the serial numbers on the Toyotas to find out where they came from.
Friedkin is also an actor on Steven Spielberg films such as Jaws. There is an old joke about Jaws. It goes “Steven Spielberg has just made a film about sharks and it is called “Jaws”. He is going to make another about loan sharks and it is called “Jews.”
Spielberg attracted me because the evil ISIS persona and the black costume and flag reminded me of Darth Vader. Also ISIS style throat cutting of innocents to make coiture meat is very much at the Center of the Jewish religion if you can call it that.
It smelled to me that maybe Spielberg or an associate had actually created the ISIS persona. The ISIS “bad guy — men in black hats” is just too Hollywood and too cheesy.
I posted this observation both here and on Veterans Today. Bro Nat printed it but VT did not print it.
Today, months after Bro Nat printed the observation, Gordon Duff has printed the same idea on VT with additional details saying,” However the fleets of Toyota Hilux “technicals” with re-inforced suspension and gun mounts are something else.
“The vehicles were delivered already armed and converted to the Jordanian Port of Aquaba. With the hundreds of these Units that have been captured or destroyed, no one has even recorded the serial numbers of a single truck.”
In fact the vehicles I saw on CNN were Toyota “Land Cruisers” which are heavier built that the Toyota “Hilux” vehicles Duff mentions although ISIS probably has some of both. The fact that they arrived ready and armed in Jordan begs the question from where and I would guess that it was Friedkin’s home state of Texas.
Maybe somebody working on the dock in ports in Texas would know?
If Jew boys Tommy Friedkin and Steven Spielberg are supplying and helping the propaganda efforts of the ISIS terrorist group, then I assume they are susceptible to being charged with treason and like Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, would face execution unless somebody likie CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, a former AIPEC employee, jumps in to White wash them like he did with jewish spy Johnathan Pollard.
Trump, and anyone who is left working in the CIA or FBI that hasn’t been bought and paid for, should look into the Toyota issue. It should be easy, even simple, for a well funded law enforcement agency to dig it up because it does smell of treason.
I know the Texas Rangers are corrupt and cannot be counted upon, becaue I was once at a cocktail party at a Texas Ranch when they called the ranch owner to tell him they were coming to look for illegal immigrants. They did this so the owner could hide them in the bush until the Rangers had looked through the buildings and left.
CBC News today has a story speaking favorably about how Israel is scanning the internet to find “terrorists”. Israel is the terrorist state.
The CBC runs interference for Israel since Long before they parachuted American Jew Barbara Frum in to gate keep CBC National News. She is the mother of David Frum who worked for the Mossad asset, the National Post, and he coined the term, “axis of evil” for the Bush Administration. His wife, Yvonne Crittenden writes for Huffington Post.
Anytime the Jew boys need gatekeepers for one of their propaganda initiatives they always choose the CBC in Canada, The NY Times in the USA and the Guardian in England as well as TV station 24 in France.
Watch out for the Zionist charities, too.
Most if not all are Zionist pro-Israel scams with those at the top getting high salaries. I keep getting the ones about elderly in Israel having to dig through dumpsters for food. Today I received one from this group that says some in Israel claim Christians were responsible for the “Holocaust”™.
This article while pushing the “Israel faces nuclear annihilation” thing is at least critical of some of these organizations (especially some in the comments):
More people are turning against the MSM. NYT is desperate so they now have commercials about the truth (as if they could ever relate).

The White House now has surveys asking for our opinions.
Maybe some of our points might get through on this Joint Address Exit Survey:
Lost Voices in the Transgender Debate: Liberals and Conservatives Unite
As the debate over transgenderism and gender identity continues to divide the nation, a politically diverse group of women came together to form a coalition called Hands Across the Aisle.
Their voices include a conservative, a rape survivor, a feminist, and a lesbian activist, all of whom believe that defining sex based on gender identity rather than biology is harmful to women. It reduces women to sexual stereotypes, they say, and erases their status before the law.
Their perspectives, the women say, have been “blacklisted” by the left-leaning news media. But in an exclusive interview in Washington with The Daily Signal, women from Hands Across the Aisle share why they’re uniting on such a controversial issue.
Biology Isn’t Bigotry: Christians, Lesbians, and Radical Feminists Unite to Fight Gender Ideology
Public schools have a duty to serve all children, but a school cannot serve children and a totalitarian ideology all at once. For the sake of children’s well-being, Christian mothers are uniting with their radical feminist and lesbian sisters to reject the idea of “gender identity.”
As a mother of seven, I have no doubts about my conviction that biological sex is a fundamental reality; giving birth many times over has made an incredibly persuasive argument in that regard.
Though I’ve been blessed with a large community of Catholic and Christian friends who share my views, in secular circles more and more people have come to see embodied sex as merely a social construct.
So you can imagine my surprise when I found that I had allies in the feminist and lesbian community.
Though we disagree on a multitude of issues, the Hands Across the Aisle coalition has found common ground in our shared womanhood, our concern for sex-based rights, and our collective refusal to redefine sex as gender identity.
We recently came together to speak on a panel at The Heritage Foundation. You can watch that panel here.
Everyone in this coalition has a story to tell and a reason behind her involvement. For me, it was as a mother to public school students that I first encountered the idea of gender as individualism gone mad.
Likewise, it is as a mother concerned with the well-being of all children that I thoroughly reject the idea of a “gender identity.”
The belief that one’s internal sense of self determines maleness or femaleness and that subjective feelings take precedence over an objective physical reality constitutes a severing of mind from body.
Our sex is who we are: it can’t be amputated from our body like a limb. But the true believers in gender ideology are hard at work, pulling in converts to this gnostic worldview that shuns the material that we humans are made of: the body.
You can be assured that an ideology like this will, to use Pope Francis’s words, lead to the “annihilation of man” in our culture, in the law, and in the lives of those who fall prey to the tenets of this weaponized “civil rights” movement.
What worries me most is that schools across the country are quashing debate, abandoning academic excellence, and reducing themselves to pawns in a political movement whose claims are highly questionable, unscientific, and harmful to children.
Public schools have a duty to serve all children, but a school cannot serve children and a totalitarian ideology all at once.
Sacrificing Truth, Science, and Children’s Well-Being
So, what can we expect to see if we sit back and allow gender identity to trump biological sex in school policies?
First, schools will teach children to accept an ideology that is predicated on the lie that biological sex plays second fiddle to a self-proclaimed, subjective gender identity, and that the sex of one’s body is mutable or even irrelevant.
This isn’t just an idea that you can tuck away in a unit study or an anti-bullying presentation. It will inevitably find its way into every aspect of a school and make a deep impression on the developing minds of children.
For example, girls, under the regressive mandates of anti-bullying and gender inclusion policies, would have to agree to call boys in their locker room “girls,” effectively losing their rights to free speech and to privacy from males.
And science—particularly biology—would die a quick death at the hands of a concept that necessarily eradicates observable facts about human sexuality. Gender ideology in the curriculum is a lie enshrined as truth.
Second, institutionalizing gender ideology will require that schools ignore the evidence that it causes real harm to children.
You can’t extol the virtues of gender ideology and question its soundness at the same time. By celebrating transgenderism as a valid identity, schools are promoting a body-mind disconnect that may very well bring on the gender dysphoric state they were attempting to prevent.
And when the widely accepted “affirmative” medical treatments of gender dysphoria in children are both poorly studied and glaringly injurious, we have nothing to celebrate.
We’re building a school-to-gender-clinic pipeline that will feed this new pediatric specialty with young patients.
There are now more than thirty gender clinics specializing in youth across the United States, and the young patients who are under their care are often given bone-destroying puberty blockers at eleven, potentially sterilized with cross-sex hormones at sixteen, and permanently mutilated by plastic surgery soon after that.
Make no mistake, schools that endorse and celebrate transgenderism as valid are endorsing child abuse.
And now a word from Russian “Opposition Leader” in Exile, ex-Soviet Communist half-Jew turned Disgraced Oligarch Prosecuted by Putin for Corruption, Fraud and Tax Evasion, hero of the Demo-GOP Establishment neoliberalcons (especially Clinton’s Jew York) as a former “political prisoner” of Putin — Mikhail Khodorkovsky (published on a fawning neocon website).
He boasts on his website “There’s a lot I could tell Trump about Russia”. But how much of it would be more accurate than self-serving?
Trump Could Help Russia Drive Putin From Power
Mikhail Khodorkovsky says democratic change coming in next few years
President Trump and his administration have a unique chance to convince Russian leader Vladimir Putin to give up power and return the country to the path of democratic political reform, a leading Russian opposition leader says.
Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the exiled Russian businessman turned democracy advocate, also warned that Russia under Putin has grown increasingly unstable, and that the nuclear-armed state could collapse in the future.
“The only opportunity to seriously change things in the relations between Putin and America under today’s [Trump] administration would be to convince Putin that it is in his best interest to leave power while this administration is in power.
“Then all the other problems can and will be solved,” Khodorkovsky said in an interview at a Washington hotel.
Speaking through an interpreter, Khodorkovsky, who is viewed as a future leader of Russia, dismissed the anti-Russia hysteria currently sweeping Washington as the result of a lack of understanding about what’s going on in Russia.
Putin enjoys seeing American leaders and news media portray him as an all-powerful figure capable of swaying the U.S. presidential election against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and in favor of Trump, something Khodorkovsky said is “laughable.”
“If Putin had any objectives whatsoever vis-à-vis that election, it was that when Clinton won—and everybody in the Kremlin was convinced Clinton would win—to create a couple of nice visible incidents in the U.S. featuring Trump’s losing supporters accusing Clinton of dishonest elections in order to then show this [news] footage in Russia in order to subsequently allow himself to falsify his own elections to say, ‘Look everybody does it,’” he said.
Trump’s victory was a huge surprise for the Kremlin, and asserting Putin had a major role in influencing the outcome is not accurate, he added.
Khodorkovsky instead said, “Your FBI director probably had more impact on the election than Putin,” a reference to FBI Director James Comey’s high-profile disclosure of a renewed probe of Clinton’s unsecured email server days before the November vote.
As for charges that Trump campaign aides were investigated for ties to Russian intelligence, Khodorkovsky said the allegations likely are the result of participation in the campaign by those outside the mainstream of American politics.
“I hope you’ll agree that to some extent, Trump is president of the alt-elite, not the mainstream elite,” he said.
“And so therefore the people he brought in to his campaign staff, these people are quite possibly less prudent than members of the mainstream elite might be. And so I would not be surprised that they may have taken some incautious steps.”
Putin has targeted alternative elites around the world in influence operations. “He tries to be generous to them, to build relations with them,” Khodorkovsky said.
The opposition leader said he does not know whether Putin succeeded in cultivating outside political figures, although that has been one of his objectives throughout Europe, including within key powers France and Germany.
“So it would be strange if he were doing something differently here, and it would be strange if nobody here got caught on that hook,” he said, adding that he does not know if any of these people ended up in Trump’s inner circle.
The former oil company executive was imprisoned in Russia in 2003 on fraud charges widely seen as political retribution. Putin pardoned him in 2013 as a humanitarian gesture prior to the Sochi Olympic Games.
Khodorkovsky now resides in London and supports a think tank, Open Russia, that is working for democratic reform. [Wherever there is an “Open” something, a Soros “Open” something must be close by. His Open Society NGO was bounced out of Russia in 2015 by federal prosecutors.-Kj]
Khodorkovsky said he believes democratic change can be brought to Russia within the next few years.
“I would say that within the next six to 10 years, the situation within Russia will change dramatically,” he said. “For me that’s not a long time because these are fundamental changes we’re talking about.”
The reaction against democracy since 2003 will end in the coming years and the Trump administration could accelerate the change, he continued.
“I feel that this American administration has the ability to make sure this is six years and not 10,” he said.
The Russian opposition leader said he would be meeting with congressional leaders to discuss the situation in Russia and hopes for meetings at the White House, including with Trump.
What would he tell the new president?
“I would tell him that the current American administration has created a crisis of sorts in the heads of America and the whole world, really,” he said.
“But we know that a crisis is not only a time of danger but a time of opportunity. I feel that Trump and his administration have an opportunity in the Russia area to not merely continue the successful or unsuccessful directions that previous administrations have followed, but to actually come to some solutions that were not possible before the Trump administration and will possibly be not possible after the Trump administration. It’s a window of opportunity.”
Trump is expected to seek a reset in relations with Moscow. Discussions are likely to include Russia’s military intervention in Syria and its partial takeover and continuing subversion of Ukraine. Nuclear disarmament also is a likely area of discussion.
Khodorkovsky said any reset is unlikely to produce better relations.
“Putin will no doubt drive a hard-nosed bargain on all of these points, but there won’t be any serious resolutions of them because you are absolutely correct: For Putin, America as an enemy is something that is very convenient for him, very useful in order to retain his own power in Russia,” Khodorkovsky said.
Putin initially reacted cautiously to Trump’s election. Recent Russian-controlled media reports have taken a harder line on the new president.
Khodorkovsky said the unique opportunity for the Trump administration is that, for the first time in the last 20 years and likely for the next 10 or 20 years, the new president is willing to reconsider the post-World War II international order reached in Yalta in 1945 that is the basis for the current geopolitical landscape.
“I’m not saying that that’s a good thing or bad thing,” he said. “I’m saying that this administration is prepared to reconsider the Yalta world order. So if Putin leaves during this administration, he will be able to negotiate with this administration some of his personal achievements in foreign policy. It’s unlikely that he’ll be able to negotiate about those with the next administration whatever that may be.”
Putin likely will seek to create new problems for the United States around the world and use them as bargaining chips in relations with the United States.
Part of the Russian leader’s strategy is to create a security buffer zone around his country.
“The problem is that by staying in the same place he is in, [Putin] is destroying Russia from within,” Khodorkovsky said.
For instance, parts of the Russia Federation, such as Chechnya, are not under Moscow’s control and Chechen authorities have been conducting political assassinations in Moscow.
The 2015 assassination of pro-democracy opposition leader Boris Nemtsov—who was killed several hundred yards from Putin’s Kremlin office—is another troubling sign of instability.
“You can understand that this does not create stability in the country, it starts rocking the country,” Khodorkovsky said. “So Putin’s staying where he is is not creating long term stability.”
A pro-democracy activist associated with Open Russia recently fell ill a second time in two years from an apparent poisoning. Vladimir Kara-Murza, a journalist who promoted a documentary film about Nemtsov, nearly died after the incident, which appeared to be designed to intimidate other Russian pro-democracy activists.
Khodorkovsky said he is not optimistic that a U.S. information operation to expose Putin would result in his departure from power. Most Russians already suspect that Putin’s massive personal wealth—by some estimates amounting to $45 billion—was obtained by siphoning off funds from the oil company Surgutneftegaz.
However, he said, a “hybrid tactic” to convince Putin to either step down or initiate democratic reforms could work.
“The days are long gone when you could sit at the negotiating table and slam your fist on the table and say, ‘either you go or we make you go,’” Khodorkovsky said.
“I think it is to the advantage of both Russian society and American society for Putin to leave. But the world is such that in order for this to happen it needs to be done so that it’s in Putin’s advantage to leave,” he said.
Khodorkovsky said Russia started down the path to democracy in 1985, a path that ultimately produced the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. However, in 1993 the constitution was changed to give the president unchecked power.
Russian political leaders in the early 1990s had the support of good officials, scientists, and industrial leaders, but lacked communicators who could explain the reforms being taken.
“What we didn’t have were people able to properly communicate between the government that was instituting the reforms and the people who needed to accept the reforms,” he said.
“Which is why the word democracy in Russia became a swear word.”
Khodorkovsky wants to see a return to a political system of checks and balances between the executive, legislative, and judicial branches, as well as a free press to replace Russia’s government-controlled media.
“It would be best if these problems were to be solved in a soft way, in a planned, orderly way and better yet with Putin’s participation,” he said.
“Then there won’t be any unpleasantness in the process. We feel that this could be done with the involvement of the current American administration and we feel that it would be to America’s advantage as well because then Russia could finally focus on solving its own problems rather than focusing on what kind of new problems to create for America.”
Through Open Russia, proposals are being made for democratic reforms and young people are being trained as democracy communicators and sent abroad to learn about free elections.
“We’re ready to take part in this work, or, in the event that power collapses, we’re ready to take on this work and do it ourselves,” he said.
“But option two is not our preferred option because we want to see reform, not revolution in Russia. But we have to be prepared for that option as well and we are.”
American perceptions of Russia today vary widely. There are those who say Putin is the most important world leader, and others who say Russia is on the verge of collapse. Both views are inaccurate, Khodorkovsky said.
“People here tend to believe that in order to maintain the status quo, we’ve got to preserve Putin,” Khodorkovsky said. “Actually, the situation is different. If we want Russia to exist and to exist as a normal country, then Putin has to leave, in, historically speaking, a rather short period of time.”
Notes: Following his pardon and release from prison on 20 December 2013 after almost a decade of transforming himself from being a tycoon-thief into a political prisoner of conscience and freedom fighter through his writings, Mikhail Khodorkovsky made only a few public appearances until the revolution broke out in Ukraine.
On 9 March 2014, the darling of liberal, globalist, anti-Putin Obama/Clintonites, Europe and Britain, Khodorkovsky, spoke at Maidan Nezalezhnosti in Kiev, where he accused the Russian government of complicity in the killing of protesters.
In March 2014, Khodorkovsky was presented with the “Man of the Year” award by the Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza. Khodorkovsky also delivered keynote speeches at the Le Monde Festival, the Freedom House Awards Dinner, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Oslo Freedom Forum, Forum 2000, the Vilnius Forum, Chatham House, the World Economic Forum, Stanford University, and (ahem) the Atlantic Council.
No, not far at all. In fact, Soros and Khodorkovsky openly declared their friendship and alliance between Open Society and Open Russia in June 2016.
George Soros, financier and philanthropist, came to the Open Russia Club to talk about his long involvement with Russia
The normally reclusive financier and philanthropist George Soros broke with his usual habits, and put in an appearance at the Open Russia Club, telling Lenny Benardo about his life, about his collaboration with Mikhail Khodorkovsky, and about his foremost accomplishment – the Open Society Foundation.
Putting Marines on the ground in Syria shows that Trump is marching to the tune of his JWO puppet masters like presidents before him.
Bush, Clinton, Bush Jr, Obama, and now Trump have all used the goyim armies to wage wars for the Jews. Only the goyim die young. It’s more of the same with Trump.
The post above about the armed Toyota Land Cruisers used by ISIS is another clue that ISIS is just a front group used to cover up who the terrorists really are.
The JWO coup against Assad/Syria may succeed, but it’s only a matter of time before Israel meets its Waterloo.

Great Videos, It make you wonder why Gordon Duff at VT is such a rabid Hillary supporter and is so obsessed with bashing Trump?
We all hope you are keeping in good health and spirit BN. If I were a younger man I would immigrate to Russia. Mr Putin is offering 40 acres of land free in the Russian interior to anyone who will put it into commercial or domestic use. Very much Like the American Homestead Act in the nineteenth century.
You should take your foundation and people there +BN and start a retreat centre, you would excell at that as you have a encouraging spirit.
I would like to make a request for you all to pray for myself and my wife in this totalitarian state of Great Britain.
I am suffering from liver damage and a multiple of other painful and very testing injuries and illnesses. My wife has heart problems and is exhausted working for the NHS for little pay.
We are experiencing much persecution here for our support for Mr Putin and our Russian brethren.
We have left the church as they have embraced same sex marriage and are even allowing ministers to have gay partners.
Britain has become the cage of every unclean bird and a stench in the nostrils of God. You cannot even explain the plan of salvation without being persecuted and threatened with the Police. The deluded frenzy of pre millennialism is our biggest enemy presently but it just makes its easier to spot the false brethren.
We never imagined that we would see such abominations in our generation. But should we be surprised when nations start to not only deny God but brazenly attack his holy name?
We are being invaded by Muslim immigrants in an attempt to swamp our Christian culture and change the demography by biological evangelization!
The loonatic left is behind all of this with their insane policies and changing of the times and seasons.

Wishing you strength and wisdom for the battle ahead,
Your servants in Christ, Richard and Caroline.

Fellow Britain, oh how I appreciate & sympathise with your personal post here at +BN’s (There’s no where like it) web site.
Your description of Britain today so true, the lunatic left, all UK CHURCH Denominations, Police Forces, Jew infected TV corporations, multiracial imposition, the foreclosure of so many Christian churches
at the expense of Mosques & Temples on English skylines, and politicians, if not down right treasonous, simply don’t have a clue.
The future for Britain is GRIM STRIFE.
I see no way out. The majority of English are non-believers (in Christ) self indulgent, football-crazy morons.
I myself do say little prayers for +BN my respect & admiration for what he does is considerable,like he, I too will pray for you & your dear wife and those who are as.
Seems that people just don’t get it…
The oligarchy that rules the US and engineers the world’s economy are so powerful that they can turn the world into chaos anytime they want. They can kill Trump and it will be like killing a cockroach…
Trump can say whatever he wants and it does not matter, why? Because everything he says is nothing new. Everything he says can be found on the internet even before he ran for the presidency… but at the end, they, the oligarchs, can get rid of him and it will be like cleaning a Cat’s barf on a floor.
If for example, Trump denounces Israel as the terrorist, savage criminal state it is, those “lovely” cynical Zionist christian conservatives, like the Blazers from Glenn Beck, who OPENLY support the genocide in the Gaza strip, are going to be pissed off.
In fact, if Donny ever speaks against Israel or Jews, he WILL be impeached, and his “Zionist christian conservative” supporters will have to choose between the anti-Zionist president or their Zionist religious fanaticism…
I mean, speaking against Jews is not the same as speaking against the Saudis like Trump did. When Trump cynically spoke against the Saudis, claiming that they were behind 9/11, his supporters praised him and neoconservative sites like Breitbart were so passionate in posting anything against the Saudis.
But now that Trump’s ban list does not include Saudi Arabia, the same neoconservative sites are no longer passionate in posting against the Saudis, probably because they don’t want to contradict their ORANGED CALF IDOL…
Indeed, I wonder how Breitbart or The Blaze will react if Trump speaks against Zionism? I’m sure if there is ever any anti-Zionism rhetoric Trump, it will be like “Manna” for RATpublicans and DEMONcrats in Congress to justify his impeachment.
The satanic, communist Jews like George Soros are using Black crime, forced integration (Civil Rights) and immigrant flooding to destroy the White Christian populations of the U.S. and Europe.
Which is why they want to make war against Russia using their dumb, U.S. military slaves. They want to so weaken Russia that it gets flooded with violent immigrants from the Middle East and Africa who want to tear up the White Christian population of Russia.
May these filthy Jew pigs and their violent Black dogs & political & military enablers (read George Orwell’s “Animal Farm”) be cast into hell with their father the devil upon the 2nd coming of Jesus.

During a meeting with his German counterpart, Lavrov was asked about the recent Wikileaks “Vault 7″ dump, which details the CIA’s global covert hacking program.
Lavrov burst out laughing: “Where do I begin?”
Lavrov noted that the CIA is able to hack refrigerators, and gave all aspiring foreign ministers some free advice:
Personally, I try not to take my phone to any serious negotiations. Till now I’ve been staying out of trouble.
This is a seriously great man.
March 10, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — President Trump has chosen open homosexual and “gay Christian” advocate Rick Grenell to be the U.S. Ambassador to NATO, according to several news reports.
The appointment, not yet confirmed by the White House, would make Grenell the highest-ranking open homosexual serving in the Trump administration.
NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) is the alliance of Western states formed in the Cold War to contain and defend against Soviet Communism. The U.S. Permanent Representative to NATO is commonly called the U.S. Ambassador to NATO.
Grenell would replace Douglas Lute, who held the position from 2013 until Trump’s inauguration.
Grenell, 50, is a Republican foreign policy expert, former spokesman for three U.S. Ambassadors to the United Nations from 2001 to 2008, and a FOX News contributor.
In the last eight years, he could often be heard on the network strongly criticizing Obama’s foreign and defense policy as weak and incompetent.
But there is another side to Grenell: “gay” advocate.
As LifeSiteNews reported after he was floated for Ambassador to the UN (a job that eventually went to South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley), Grenell advocates for homosexual “marriage” as a “conservative” issue.
He criticizes “loud religious right activists” who oppose homosexuality and touts Trump’s uniquely pro-LGBT credentials as a Republican. He was an early Trump supporter.
On LGBT issues, Trump has disappointed social conservatives by a series of actions that include reinstating an Obama executive order forcing federal contractors to have pro-LGBTQ policies; proclaiming that the homosexual “marriage” issue is “settled” in the courts; and appointing top advisers like Betsy DeVos and Anthony Scaramucci who are pro-homosexual.
But Trump’s recent reversal of Obama’s intrusive “transgender” school mandate thrilled conservatives of every stripe.
Grenell, who lives in Los Angeles, reportedly has a long-term homosexual partner, Matt Lashey.
Grenell is pro-life and has worked over the years to help pro-life advocates at the UN, according to one veteran pro-life advocate involved in international issues.
But when it comes to homosexuality, Grenell calls for greater “tolerance” in the Republican Party despite the party’s clear and longstanding platform language opposing “rights” and “marriage” based on aberrant sex.
In a Feb. 3 podcast with FOX News reporter Shannon Bream, he said, “I am gay, I am a Christian and I am still a man of faith.”
In the interview, Grenell demonstrates precisely the sort of pro-homosexual advocacy that inspires opposition among Christians who accept the age-old biblical proscription against homosexual behavior.
“I know I was born this way,” he emphatically told Bream. (Social conservatives have long dismissed the “born gay” claim, and in recent years socially liberal researchers and even homosexual activists have joined them in saying the theory is simplistic.)
Grenell told Bream that he grew up in a strongly Christian home and went to an Assemblies of God college.
He cited his liberating experience attending Harvard graduate school and talking with the late homosexual pastor Peter Gomes.
As the professor of Christian Morals at Harvard Divinity School, Gomes condemned alleged Christian “homophobia” used his prestigious perch to rebut the religious case against homosexuality.
In the same vein, Grenell told Bream that biblical passages that historically have been interpreted as clearly proscribing homosexual practice actually do not mean that. The first chapter of the New Testament Book of Romans is one such passage.
[Neither Christ, the authors of the Old Testament, nor the Church Fathers knew what they were talking about, and it took some Harvard Divinity School homosexual professor of “Christian Morals” to straighten the divine Son of God and the holy Apostles out.]
“For so many Christians that I grew up with, they were focused on verses in the Bible that talked about homosexuality as a negative thing. And when you go back in and actually look at the original words for these verses, it wasn’t about being homosexual at all.
“It was about being deviant, or a prostitute,” he said. “And so there was no thought that you were going to be able to have a committed [homosexual] relationship.”
[Clearly, when Christ defined God-blessed marriage as being between a man and a woman, it slipped His mind to mention sodomite pseudo-marriages as being “equal”. Pffft.
Not even in ancient pagan Greece, with its notorious tolerance of homosexuality and pederasty in the name of Eros considered “same-sex unions” as marriages; nor was it ever understood and conceded that there could be “marriage” between two people of the same sex. Justice Scalia’s approval of ancient wisdom echoed the previous referral by Justice Samuel Alito to the fact that ancient Greek and Romans societies never sanctioned same-sex marriage.
The justice noted the Greeks and Romans had no moral disapproval of homosexual relations, yet neither culture ever considered approving same-sex marriage. The implication was that those cultures must have found it would cause some sort of harm to society.

Robert Gagnon, associate professor of New Testament at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and the world’s leading academic authority on the Bible and homosexuality from an orthodox (conservative) Christian perspective, specifically rejects Grenell’s thesis that the Bible does not condemn homosexual relationships.
[That’s orthodox with a little O, not Orthodox Christianity, but Gagnon is entirely correct and “orthodox” in his essay. I highly commend his essay, here: http://www.robgagnon.net/HowBadIsHomosexualPractice.htm ]
Grenell said he respects Christians who disagree with him and his interpretation of Scripture.
He’s For Religious Liberty
Grenell said in the interview with Bream that he is strongly “for religious liberties.”
“I am somebody in the gay community who pushes and takes a lot of heat for trying to get the gay community to understand that we should not be trying to get people to jump up and down and be happy about the fact that we’re gay,” he said. “We should be demanding equal rights, equal protections, and that’s it.”
“I’m not looking for approval of my life from people,” he said. “I’m looking for equality and protections — just like you’re not looking for me to approve every area of your life.”
On Thursday, Grenell retweeted a tweet from “Young Duck” that said:

Jew York Times: ‘Revolution? What Revolution?’ Russia Asks 100 Years Later
MOSCOW — The Kremlin plans to sit out the centenary of the Russian Revolution.
Never mind that the upheavals of 1917 transformed the country and the world, abruptly ending the long rule of the czars, ushering in the Communist era and spawning an ideological confrontation with the West that still resonates.
There will be no national holiday on Sunday, March 12, the date generally recognized as the start of the uprising. Nor will there even be a government-issued official interpretation, like the one mandating that World War II was a “Great Victory.”
The official reason proffered for ignoring the event is that Russia remains too divided over the consequences of that fateful year.
The more likely explanation, some Kremlin officials, historians and other analysts say, is that President Vladimir V. Putin loathes the very idea of revolution, not to mention the thought of Russians dancing in the streets to celebrate the overthrow of any ruler.
Moreover, 1917 smudges the Kremlin’s version of Russian history as a long, unified march to greatness, meant to instill a sense of national pride and purpose.
The February Revolution and Kerensky’s Missed Opportunity MARCH 6, 2017
For the record, the Kremlin is sticking to the official line of avoiding domestic discord.
“For one group of people, the revolution was the death knell of Great Russia — it was ‘Brexit,’ when we stopped our development in Europe,” said Mikhail Shvydkoy, Mr. Putin’s special representative on cultural matters, in an interview in the wood-paneled cafe at the Central House of Writers, a prerevolutionary mansion. “For many other people, the Soviet past was the best time of their lives.”
Mr. Putin strives to unite the country, he said, whereas “any festivities on the state level would deepen those divisions.”
Despite the widespread perception that the czar was overthrown in what the Soviets called the Great October Socialist Revolution, there were two revolutions in 1917.
The February Revolution (now falling in March, given a different calendar) deposed the czar and replaced him with a provisional government that introduced liberal reforms like universal suffrage.
Eight months later, Lenin and his marginal Bolshevik faction engineered a remarkable coup that gave rise to the world’s first communist state.
Mr. Putin’s critiques of the revolution contrast markedly with his usual glowing tributes to Russian history.
“We know well the consequences that these great upheavals can bring,” he said in his state of the federation speech in December. “Unfortunately, our country went through many such upheavals and their consequences in the 20th century.”
At an earlier public forum, after disparaging Lenin, he said, “We didn’t need the world revolution.”
The president shunted the anniversary off into the realm of academia, appointing a special committee to organize seminars and the like.
Previously, the official narrative was an essay written by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, in which he argued that deep distrust between the court and the educated elite along with German meddling brought about catastrophe.
The latter fits the Kremlin narrative that Russia has long been besieged by foreign aggressors and that the West strives to implant friendly regimes everywhere by sponsoring “color revolutions.”
Columnists have been lumping 1917 among more recent color revolutions in places like Georgia and Ukraine, naturally listing the United States among the suspected agitators.
There is also a damning lack of heroic figures in the revolution. Czar Nicholas II was deposed and thus weak.
Alexander F. Kerensky, the central figure in the provisional government, proved ineffective. Lenin fomented appalling bloodshed and destroyed the Russian Orthodox Church, a pillar of Mr. Putin’s support.
“Vladimir Putin cannot compare himself to Nicholas II, nor to Lenin nor to Kerensky, because that is not Russian history to be proud of,” said Mikhail Zygar, a Russian journalist and the author of a best-selling book, “All the Kremlin’s Men,” which details the inner workings of the Putin regime.
“In terms of 1917, nothing can be used as a propaganda tool.”
In comparison, the Kremlin has turned World War II into the apogee of national unity.
In the absence of official spin, other factions are only too happy to provide some, often referring to current events.
At one recent forum, Vladimir R. Medinsky, the conservative minister of culture, said the revolution underscored the dangers of letting liberals rule, because they always put self-interest above Russia.
Metropolitan Hilarion of the Russian Orthodox Church, speaking at the same event, lambasted those who destroyed the czarist state rather than seeking compromise.
Liberals retort that a repressive government ignoring vast income disparity and curbing basic rights should be worried about history repeating itself.
“The authorities cannot celebrate 1917,” said Nikita Sokolov, a historian. “Whatever might have happened, the impulse of the revolution was social justice. A country with such inequality can’t celebrate this. Also, the authorities think that any revolution is a color revolution.”
For the Communist Party — an ever-weaker link in the loyal opposition — the establishment of the Soviet Union was a singular achievement.
It plans to celebrate not least with parades in Moscow and elsewhere on Nov. 7, which in Soviet times was the main national holiday.
Amid the mudslinging, there are efforts to bring the momentous events to life.
Mr. Zygar, a former editor in chief of the independent TV Rain news channel, established one of the more ambitious projects, called Project 1917.
Excavating a vast trove of historical archives, he and his young staff compiled a Facebook imitation, chronicling 1917, in Russian and English.
It uses snippets from the diaries of hundreds of mostly prominent Russians of that epoch to create a snapshot of every single day, including the weather.
On March 8, for example, as the St. Petersburg bread riots gathered steam, there is Nicholas II lamenting that his children have the measles.
[This is not as trivial as the Jew York Times makes it. At that time, measles was still an extraordinarily destructive disease not only in terms of mortality, but in male sterility.
As such, Nicholas II would have been very concerned about hereditary royal succession to the Russian imperial throne.-KathJ]
Others focused on the mushrooming chaos. Mikhail Rodzianko, the head of the Duma, or Parliament, wrote, “Something was broken today, and the state machine derailed.”
On March 15, the day of his abdication, the Czar wrote, “All around there is treason, cowardice and deceit.” The next day he mentioned reading a book about Julius Caesar, then avoided political references until April, Mr. Zygar noted.
If the emperor was phlegmatic, scores of others are more stimulating. It was the era of Russian giants in literature, ballet, painting, music and movies — people like Serge Diaghilev, Igor Stravinsky, Sergei Eisenstein, Vladimir Mayakovsky and Kazimir Malevich.
Political figures such as Lenin, Maxim Gorky and Leon Trotsky weigh in often.
“Almost all the most famous Russians known in the world happened to live at that time,” said Mr. Zygar, who was first inspired to write a history of the epoch called “The Empire Must Die,” and then dreamed up the website to try to reach a wider audience.
Many historians and others note that Russia lives with a certain ambivalence toward 1917. Although many perceive it as having wrecked the country, its symbols are still enmeshed in the fabric of daily life.
At a recent forum, Leonid Reshetnikov, a historian and retired lieutenant general in Russia’s foreign intelligence service, described trying to explain to his granddaughter why the city of Yekaterinburg had a church dedicated to the czar and his family, who were canonized by the church, as well as a monument to Lenin, the man who ordered them shot there.
“We live in historical schizophrenia, with these monuments to Lenin, to all of them,” he said, going on to denounce any street protesters as potential revolutionaries.
“How do we explain to young people that they must not be revolutionaries, that they must be loyal citizens — yes, fight for Russia, wish it well, but under no circumstances plot, overthrow, march, kill?”
You seem to suggest that there is some Jewish coordinated effort across banking, educational, legal, and entertainment industries.
Do they all get together and coordinate a common vision?
Are they communicating to one another or something assumed?
The common vision, the poisonous guide book that justifies the slavery and murder of all other cultures and people and even child molesting is the Talmud. Israel is the street gang club house that abides by this book of death.
The initiation of action to bring about these values comes from the control of money. The Jews are per capita the richest people on earth, many are super rich, and they control the Federal Reserve Bank - all of America’s Money - and in that way the right to print money which is really counterfeiting. These counterfeiters are untouchable.
Nobody even seems to know who the shareholders of Federal Reserve really are which is madness. Just crazy!
The money buys media control that is used to start wars like all the Color Revolutions going on in the Middle East which are designed to grab the oil and eventually the Suez Canal to create “Greater Israel” at a time when the world really needs “Much Lesser Israel”.
For example, if you watch Christianne Anampour on Israeli owned CNN, a fifth columnist news network working for an alien Nation but based inside America, you soon realize she is Israel’s Tokyo Rose, and her propaganda role now is to destabilize Syria for her Jewish masters. Her real last name is Rubin.
The media is also used to divide others to conquer them such as winding up black lives matter, womens issues, driving mass immigation etc.
The Israelis regularly murder individual scientists like Canada’s Gerald Bull and many Iranian scientists.
Their money is also used for media control. For example, a Group of Jewish casinos in Los Vegas and some Jewish investment bankers in New York control all the newspapers in English speaking Canada except four.
Mossad asset central is the National Post newspaper in Toronto published by Paul Godfrey who is also Sheldon Adelson’s gambling lobbyist in Toronto.
The Money is also used to control academia and determines who gets to say and think what. For example, The Jewish financed and controlled Monk Centre at the University of Toronto features speakers like Harvard lawyer Alan Dershowitz, currently being cross-examined for his role in convicted child molestors Jeffrey Epstein’s Orgy Island.
Jews in media like CNN’s Jake Tapper act as gate keepters to keep people from talking about what does not fit the Jewish narrative. If interviewees don’t stick to the party line, suck up to CNN, and smile sweetly in deference to CNN’s commentators, they are cut off.
If they criticize Israel, like Helen Thomas or Jim Clancey did, they are fired.
If a CNN reporter like Peter Arnett interviews someone who explains Iraq did not have any weapons of mass detruction, before the Iraq war started, they are fired like Arnett was, because CNN’s role was to wind up the war in Iraq.
Christianne Anampour could claim responsibilty for at least a million deaths, mostly women and children, if she really wanted to. She could have her own death memorial wall much larger than the Viet Nam memorial wall. It could be as much as 20 times larger and maybe even as much as 40 times larger.
She knows that and is now posing with her own children amongst Syrian refugee children in Jordan to try to make herself look sympathetic to their cause and whitewash herself.
Her work in Jordan (where its safe for her) allegeldy on behalf of Syrian refugees reminds me of Macbeth trying to wash the blood off his Hands. “Out damm spot!”
The litmus test is 9/11 which was obviously done by Israel with Saudi money and patsies. See the Dr Alan Sabrosky interviews. No Jewish “intellectuals” (there really aren’t any) such a Noam Chompshy will go there. They know what the implications is if the truth comes out. They know it means Israel declared war on America killing as many Americans as Pearl Harbour.
The Money is used for constant bribery. For example when you hear the words American Foreign Aid you think the “Aid” is going to help the poor of the world. Not so!
Half of all American foreign aid since the creation of Israel has gone to Israel, and Jews are per capita the richest people on earth. I have no doubt that much of this Money is recyled and kick backed as money to bribe Congress either legally (election contributions and speech fees) or illegally (offshore bank accounts.)
The Jews are per capita the richest People on earth, they need the Money less than anyone else and they get most of the foreign aid.
It also smells like the Jews are actively arming ISIS terrorists and may now completely control the American CIA.
Just who is the tail and who is the dog with the CIA and the Mossad is unclear, but in any case I can think of who ever has the most Money wins. My guess is Israel, which was financed by the Rothschild family, controls the CIA and now the American Military, through proxies like the Rockefellers, and not visa versa.
The jews seem to be arming ISIS, which like the Jews, has a primitive throat-cutting value System. That is what coiture meat is!
For example, if you watch CNN itself, you will see the main ISIS military vehicle is the Toyota Land Cruiser with a 50 calibre machine guin on the back.
They are called “technicals”. They are cheap and effective and reliable. I have a friend who was saved from the Lord’s Resistance Army in northen Uganda by a mercenary with a technical.
He was pinned down and doomed when the technical (paid for by the Uganda government) heard the shooting, came along and killed all the LRA trying to get at him.
Toyata Land cruisers are not made in Iran, Russia, Syria etc. They are made in NATO countries with the exception of some that are assembled in South Africa.
The largest Toyota dealer in the Middle East is the Texas Jew Tommy Friedkin. According to Gordon Duff, Toyota’s are arriving in Aqaba full armed. They were not captured by ISIS. They were provided to ISIS.
If I wanted to find out who is supplying Toyota “technical” to the terrorist ISIS Group, I’d start by talkng to Texas Jew boy Tommy Friedkin, who oddly enough is joined at the hip to Jewish Hollywood, the very people driving Holocaust mythology.
Friedkin is a $billionaire but even though he doesn’t need the money he acts in (and perhaps finances) Steven Spielberg films. he appeared in JAWS.
These “technicals” are definitely coming from a NATO Country and are fully armed when they arrive in Aqaba according to VT’s Gordon Duff.
You don’t need meetings to make plans and initiate action. As Amstel Rothschild said, If you control the money you don’t need to control of government. You not only get to decide who works and who does not work you get to determime everything they say.
Jewish banking families control the world by controlling the wealth. They are the head of the snake.
Liberty depends on the distribution of power. The Jews and all authoritarians, be they communists (the Jews whom Solzinizin says destroyed Russia) or the fascists (Jewish Bankers), believe in the centralization of power. They control both horns of what we think of as democracy.
Liberty is different. The comment that explains it best is democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner. Liberty is two wolves and a sheep with a gun voting for the same thing.
The only two political documents that have tried to support human Liberty (not freedom) are the Magna Carta and the Constitution of the United States.
Individual Liberty is the arch enemy of Jewish culture which is extremely evil and every bit as backward and primitive as the value systems of the cannibals who still dwell at the headwaters of the Congo River (whom I have met).
Jewish Bankers are the reason the world keeps going to war. They are the snakes are in charge of the hen house. When you put a snake in a hen house the hens all stop laying which is what happened in Libya and is happening in Syria today.
There is a very detailed report by Gordon Duff, Wayne Madson and others, naming names and explaining exactly how Israel, the Jewish state, the representative of Jewish values, in other words the Jews attacked America on 9/11 killing 3,000 Americans, 160 Canadian 60 Brits etc thus making a formal, and as yet unanswered declaration of war on most NATO countries.
It rings true. Read it. Very detailed and it mentions the roles of people like Barbara Walters, the alleged CBS Journalist and Darling of the Jewish media, and the woman whose name was found on the private mailing list of convicted child molestor Jeffrey Epstein along with that of CNN political commentator Eric Margolis.
Can’t help concluding yours is a strange post indeed.
Have I missed something?
Or where have you spent your adult years?
Is my likening for your Dana Rhoabacher miss placed?
Does he have a top job in Trump’s Administration?
“A match made in Heaven” surely?
Russia Insider: CIA Hacked Your Fridge!
Lavrov Bursts Out Laughing When Asked About CIA Hacking: ‘Where Do I Begin?’
Pro tip from Russia’s Foreign Minister: Leave your phone at home when you’re negotiating Syrian ceasefires

RT: US intervention in Syria is ‘violation of international law, act of war’
Why is the US deploying its troops now, when the Syrian army is close to winning its war against radicalism, asks Middle-East expert Catherine Shakdam, while noting that US interventions have never been successful in fighting terrorism in any way.
Damascus has not given the US troops permission to be in Syria, President Bashar Assad said.
“Any foreign troops coming to Syria without our invitation or consultation or permission, they are invaders, whether they are American, Turkish, or any other one,” he said in an interview with Chinese PHOENIX TV, as cited by the Syria’s state-run news agency, SANA.
The Pentagon confirmed earlier that it has sent a small number of US troops to the Aleppo governorate’s city of Manbij, saying they are there to deter conflict between US-backed Kurdish forces and rebels backed by Turkey.
According to Middle-East expert Catherine Shakdam, the deployment is “a violation of international law.”
“Whenever a country infringes on another’s national and territorial sovereignty, then you have a problem. I would argue that having foreign military presence in Syria without consultation with Damascus and an expressed approval of President Bashar Assad, who remains the legitimate source of power in Syria, [is] an act of war,” she told RT.
“You can’t have those situations where the likes of Washington continue to intervene against the wishes of nations just because they feel that they can,” she added.
The US had repeatedly insisted it would put no boots on the ground in Syria, but has now reneged on that promise, Shakdam said, noting that “this is what they do.”
The timing of Washington’s decision to deploy additional troops raises a few questions that need to be asked, she says.
A small number of US troops were sent to the northern Syrian town of Manbij to deter conflict between the US-backed Kurdish forces and Turkey-backed rebels, the Pentagon has confirmed. Syrian troops…
“Why now, why this military presence in Syria when the Syrian army is just about getting rid of ISIS [Islamic State, formerly ISIL] permanently, when the Syrian Arab Army with its partners – Hezbollah, Iran, and Russia – is just about winning this war against radicalism?
“Why does the US need to intervene right now when the Syrians can do it by themselves, thank you very much, if it’s not to actually muddy the water and actually offer some kind of a cover by creating a vacuum to the likes of ISIS and other militants on the ground?”
It also remains to be seen whether the relatively small number of American troops in Syria, which currently amount to about 900, is going to help in the fight against Islamic State, the expert said.
“I don’t think that anywhere the US has intervened, it has helped in any way, shape, or form in terms of fighting terrorism,” Shakdam added.
Shakdam also drew a parallel between the US intervention in Syria and the Saudi-led war in Yemen.
“It’s very strange how the architecture of the new intervention in Syria is shaping up in a way which reminds me of the Saudi coalition against Yemen,” she said.
The analyst argues that, by “running into this war theatre,” the US is playing into the hands of Riyadh, which doesn’t want Assad to remain in power “and would like to impose its reality on the ground in the Levant in general.”
Deep state? Is this a new word?
Everyone is calling it a deep state in the last two weeks. A new trend? I’m not trendy.
Ever since rumors of Obamacare were first floated, the Jews media has been talking up health insurance, repeal and replace, or something similar.
The Jews media always emphasizes REPLACE when they talk about repealing Obamacare. People want Obamacare repealed. People want the government to leave healthcare alone.
People don’t want the government replacing Obamacare with Trumpcare or something similar to Obamacare or even worse if that’s possible. Nearly any sensible person over 40 years old realizes that anything the government takes over turns into a POS (Piece Of Trash).
The Jews media pushes the big lie that people want Obamacare replaced instead of repealed only. Of course that isn’t what the people want, it’s what the insurance racket wants. The same banksters who own the insurance lobby also own the Jews media.
The insurance business is a big scam and a form of debt slavery. According to some sources, the insurance racket began in Jew York in the early 20th century, as business owners were forced to pay “fire insurance” so their business wouldn’t burn down. The “insurers” ensured that “uninsured” businesses got burned.
From such evil beginnings, insurance morphed into the monster it is now. The banksters put lots of their billions into insurance companies. The insurance lobby owns some of the best politicians that money can buy.
Some patients who didn’t have health insurance prior to Obamacare could no longer get treatment after they got insurance. Doctors had to comply with insurance contracts requiring copays that priced treatment out of reach. Such patients had to become uninsured again before they could get treatment.
The insurance heads had politicians pass laws forcing people to buy auto insurance in the mid eighties. After the insurance racketeers saw they could get away with that they directed their puppet politicians to pass laws forcing people to buy health insurance.
When will we stop betraying ourselves and everyone else.Aaron Russo proved in his movie Freedom To Fascism-You Tube-DVD that American is in state of treason.
The first Amendment-Freedom of Speech does not exist as truth is the enemy of the state
The Nazis, as Bernay Book Propaganda, knew that repetition was the main answer to brainwashing.
This is why you can say anything as long as it does not have effect.
If the FED and IRS are removed with their puppets then the rotten foundation is gone.
Of course when you see those puppets standing behind Trump with their Mason Hand Signs you know the system is infested with sharks.
This means acute surgery must be performed.The problem is Ron Paul tried to operate and he was cheated out of being president for doing so.
Character cannot be changed without radical removal of the filth that infects it.
Cleaning a swamp requires draining it dry and then using disinfectant. Where is that disinfectant, does it exist, probably not as is indicated.
Putin said bipolar world, so now maybe half NWO-HNWO. Half is better than none.
From the looks of things it is state of Cold War and business as usual, so have to restructure America and recondition its people.
There always has to be someone to fight with as how could one make profit without it.
If Putin is not going to invade America with China, etc., then we can thank him for the destruction of the EU, NWO.
Fake news and Props go in all directions so you have to look for truth elsewhere.
NSA, NASA, CIA and other kin have been exposed to the max.
How interesting it is that repetition is the monopoly of those who control.
The constant change of subject misses the mark. If the FED and IRS exist with the IMF, what change can there be that is to your advantage?
You see these are the issues that need to be impressed on the mind as they are the foundation of liberation. Jefferson and Jackson have been proven to be correct in their position.
Character does not change unless extreme measures are applied. One learns by repetition. Once conditioned it is difficult to change, as you are habituated and determined. Of course you will deny it,yet it is fact.
Nature is law and will have last word. Man does what he must. Outcome is already printed in the stars. Cycles are the law. Probability is the law.
History does repeat itself in similar ways. Trump, regardless of what controls him, will make America Great Again. There will be no depression.
Yes Default, currency change. No nuclear war. Rationing may be required in transition. Bipolar world demands it as the law of nature does.
Julius Caesar and Augustus created the Golden Age. Look to them for answers today and outcome. Do not be deceived by the deceivers.
These are my opinions & they may be incorrect. Research and verify for facts.
Walter Haas—God Bless America
The comments are most excellent, academically and historically.
Obviously many commenters have Faith in God.
Where are the prayers!?
If you think we can win this without Prayer unto Almighty God we shall surely see Satan on the Horizon.
There is nothing more Power Full than Prayer.
With a Clean Heart that is honest unto self and has realized we are sinners and the sacrifice of Jesus Christ - our prayers are accepted by the Father Almighty. I can’t explain it…., but I believe it 100%
But a humble heart is required.
HUMBLE is good. Bless all readers of this site.
I see Trump as a hater of humanity now. I think he made a deal with the Federal Reserve to get the market manipulated up.
What’s he doing about the Federal Reserve? Nothing. He’s silent on it.
He complained about Goldman Sachs, and he flips and fills his cabinet with those from Goldman Sachs.
He use to say the government puts out phony jobs report and now he says its true when he’s in, no matter the scam accounting in how the survey is conducted and in how the seasonal adjustments are made.
He mentioned the manipulated up stock market while he was campaigning and now he brags about it.
I believe he really paid for prostitutes all the time as well - separate from the policy stuff - it shows what a dirtbag he is.
Sounds to me like there has been a Civil War in the Deep State.
Trump is still aggressively neo-con, ramping up interventions in the Middle East, Afghanistan, etc, according to RT. Assad has denounced a further illegal invasion.
When Trump cosied up to Russia, and started flame wars with China, I suspected he was trying to drive a wedge in their alliance - the latest Neo-Con strategy.
Pharisees and Sadducees, was it ever thus.
“Jews’ law is man-made that’s why they hate Christianity–because it’s from God and you just can’t override that.”
I can ssure you all that Jews and their fellow travellers are not detered from over ruling God and his laws and judgement.

For the Second Week of Eastern Orthodox Lent
GREAT DOC: American Orthodox Christians and Their Connection with Russia Through Music - PATRAM
In an effort to better train church musicians, representatives from most major musical programs and seminaries in ROCOR and the OCA gathered together at the end of 2013 to form the Patriarch Tikhon Russian-American Music Institute (PaTRAM).
The work of the newly formed institute was blessed by the Primates of the Orthodox Church in America and the Russian Church Abroad.
Building on the work that has been done by music educators in the past, PaTRAM strives to provide continuity through its progressive training programs at every level of Church musical development in both English and Slavonic.
PaTRAM has also partnered with the Media Office of the Eastern American Diocese of ROCOR to produce a documentary about the work and goals of the institute.
The 25-minute film, entitled “Uniting Musical Excellence with Orthodox Worship,” gives an overview of the important role of music in the life of the Orthodox Church and explains how PaTRAM is embarking on an endeavor that could potentially revolutionize the way that the Orthodox conductors and singers receive their musical training in North America.
SAINT PATRIARCH TIKHON - HIS MISSIONARY LEGACY TO ORTHODOX AMERICA
“PATRIARCH TIKHON IS ONE OF THE GREATEST UNIVERSAL SAINTS.”
A talk with Archpriest Vladimir Vorobiev
“Patriarch Tikhon is the image of an Orthodox saint, who stood alone against the hurricane of bloody evil: revolution, civil war, mass violence, executions, and murders. They threatened to kill him also, and sent assassins on several occasions. He did not run away from death.
The only thing that he held dear was service to the Church. He understood that the Lord had placed him as a lighthouse that should shine in the darkness and light the path to Christ.
His circulars are patristic teachings to all Christians for all the remaining ages.”
“—Patriarch Tikhon, like all holy people, was inwardly very free. He blessed and thus legitimatized, as Patriarch and as a saint, frequent Communion of the Holy Mysteries of Christ. He called the people to this. This blessing has particular meaning to us.
“He blessed people for the labor of confession and martyrdom. He showed by his own example how the Church can be victorious over the most terrifying, unbelievable evil.”
Putin Calls Out Netanyahu for Exploiting Purim Story to Disparage Iran
March 12, 2017 By Richard Silverstein

Vladimir Putin: “Stop Ziosplaining me, Bibi!” (Pavel Golovkin/AFP)
Bibi Netanyahu is trying his best to get out from under the cloud of three different corruption investigations. During his last police interrogation he conveniently managed to have Pres. Trump call him during his meeting with them, with a message of encouragement.
Bibi’s also been traveling around the world to any country that will have him. His most recent trip was this week to Russia to meet with Vladimir Putin.
Israel and Russia have a close relationship. Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman is reportedly very close to the Russian leadership. There is a great deal of coördination between the two militaries regarding Syria. Both have a military presence there (in Israel’s case it is more covert) and seek to avoid accidents and interference in each others initiatives.
Both countries also have competing interests regarding Iran, which Russia supplies with advanced military weaponry and its nuclear facilities like the Bushehr reactor.
Given his political weakness (if he is indicted as a result of any of the investigations he will likely be forced to resign), his rivals like Naftali Bennett are exerting intense pressure from his political right.
They’re advocating annexing the West Bank in order to garner further support from the settler lobby, one of the most powerful factions in Israeli politics. Netanyahu, who is rather a deft political tactician while a horrid strategist, sees Iran as the perfect pressure valve to use to release the air in Bennett’s tires.
If he can gin up increased fear of Iran, he will divert the attention of Israel’s voters from domestic issues like annexation.
This is also the reason Trump and Netanyahu have engaged in this odd dance lately in which the president has toned down significantly his support of Israeli expansionism.
He’s stopped talking about moving the embassy, asked Israel politely to stop building new settlement housing “for a little while,” and not said a word (as he had earlier) about supporting a one-state solution. He’s even purportedly warned Israel not to pursue annexation.
So it’s no surprise Bibi chatted up Putin about Iran when he was in Moscow. He trots out the same history lessons over and over for his foreign audiences. Since it was the holiday of Purim, which commemorates an ancient Persian failed attempt to exterminate the Jews, the Israeli leader did a little Ziosplaining to the Russian president:
In a meeting with Putin in Moscow, Netanyahu said Persia had made “an attempt to destroy the Jewish people that did not succeed” some 2,500 years ago, an event commemorated through the holiday of Purim, which Israel will celebrate on Sunday and Monday. “Today there is an attempt by Persia’s heir, Iran, to destroy the state of the Jews,” Netanyahu said.
“They say this as clearly as possible and inscribe it on their ballistic missiles.”
The Israeli tried to same ploy in his speech to the U.S. Congress in 2015, which he delivered in a deliberate attempt to embarrass Pres. Obama. In that case, the trumped up historical analogy went over well. But Putin is a far more astute student of history and he was having none of it:
Adopting a more conciliatory tone, Putin said that the events described by Netanyahu had taken place “in the fifth century B.C.” “We now live in a different world. Let us talk about that now,” Putin said.
Despite my severe allergic reaction to virtually everything Putin represents, in this case he was exactly right. Israel has no right to expect the world owes it anything based on the myths inscribed in ancient Jewish texts and traditions.
They are, to quote my grandmother, bubbeh meises [grandmother’s tales; a little more serious than folk tales]. They belong in the synagogue where the Book of Esther is recited. Not in the halls of power where decisions are made affecting the lives of tens of millions.
Netanyahu made a further error when he attempted to enlist Putin in Israel’s war against Shia Islam. Russia certainly faces a battle against Islamists within and without its borders. But its enemies aren’t necessarily Shia and certainly not Iran.
That’s why this appeal fell on deaf ears:
Putin’s comment came after Netanyahu stressed that while Israel was capable of defending itself, the country — and the whole world — remained threatened by radical Shia Islam.
“The threat of radical Shia Islam threatens us no less than it does the region and the peace of the world, and I know that we are partners in the desire to prevent any kind of victory by radical Islam of any sort,” Netanyahu said.
Unlike Trump, Putin wants no part of propping up Bibi’s political fortunes by trashing Iran.
Russia’s interests are based on the value another nation brings to it. Relations with Iran benefit Russia in a number of important ways. Putin is not about to throw over Iran because it will help save Bibi’s political hide.
Richard Silverstein is a leftist Zionist, progressive American Jew, probably atheist or agnostic, who’s been covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict since 2003. The fact that he heavily criticizes the Jewish state and the religious right-wing Zionists doesn’t mean that he’s actually anti-Zionist.

The pro ISRAEL USA Europe Lobby
Nina Rosenwald, by The Nation is described as “The Sugar-Mama or Anti-Muslim Hate ‘.
Rosenwald is director of the Gate Stone Institute, a New York think tank that adorns majority in alarmist messages about Muslims and refugees and which also again the big lender is behind the foundation of David Horowiz.
Who worked for two years as an author for the think tank? Right, The Belgian Paul Beliën. At the Brussels Journal Beliën might also like to write about his “friend” in the White House. That was William McGurn, the speech writer for George W. Bush, whom he had met yet as a journalist on the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal.
Beliën who got his money from Rosenwald. For example, wages for writing the book ”Marked for Death” published as a book of the Dutch pro Israel and anti Islam politician Geert Wilders of the party called PVV.
In 2015 and 2016 Rosenwald also funds two lectures Wilders in the USA. Beliën acts from 2016 also as an important link between the PVV and Breitbart. The website shrinks while not return for racist and misogynist articles, but forms with 45 million readers an interesting stage for the party.
For A year Geert Wilders writes a monthly column for the site. At least, his name was above the article. In reality the author was Beliën. Which scatters lavish with compliments directed at Donald Trump and lets text flow from his keyboard like:
“In my country, the Netherlands, live 100 thousand Muslims who are willing to violence. However, the Dutch army was only 50 thousand soldiers strong. So even if we were to deploy the entire army to guard Christmas markets, theaters, nightclubs, festivals, malls, churches and synagogues, then we can not guarantee the security of all our citizens.”
Beliën also ensures that Breitbart is fed once a week by e-mail with the latest good news about the PVV. In effect, the website devoted regularly lyrical articles to the party.
On July 19, 2016 Geert Wilders stands behind a lectern in a small room in Cleveland. Behind him hang large posters of (half) naked, roguish-looking young men, wearing hats with the words’ Let’s make America great again.”
Wilders speaks this evening, in the margins of the Republican convention, at the meeting organized by Breitbart Gays for Trump. You might know Wilders as the Dutch keynote speaker with Pamela Geller at the Texas cartoon event shooting.
Geert Wilders, told attendees that Muslims don’t have humor while promoting insulting cartoons for Muslims.
Russia Insider: Israel Lost in Syria. But It Already Has a Backup Plan
Israel was betting on “moderate” rebels gutting Syria. Its backup plan is to wear down Hezbollah until it can “deal” with Iran
The entire world celebrated after Russian President Vladimir Putin invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to join the real world during the Sore Loser Summit in Moscow on March 9.
But the Israelis are not so easily convinced, unfortunately.
Now that it has been denied a nice chunk of Syrian territory (as a buffer zone, of course), Israel has set its sights once again on Lebanon.
Former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney pointed us to Israel’s Plan B:

Hezbollah, Israel Brace for All-Out Conflict

AlterNet has republished a real eye-opener from The Arab Weekly about growing tensions between Israel and Hezbollah.
The thesis of the piece is that while “mutual deterrence” has provided for an uneasy ceasefire, the conflict in Syria has made it clear that a new war is almost certain — and it will “dwarf” the 2006 conflict:
The focus on Hezbollah in recent years has been on the party’s intervention in Syria rather than its 3-decade struggle against Israel.
But Hezbollah’s leadership is acutely aware that an Israeli government may conclude that there will never be a better time to launch an offensive against its old enemy than while Hezbollah is fighting in Syria.
Hezbollah is still very focused on the front with Israel with many of its top fighters, especially anti-tank missile teams and rocket units, remaining in Lebanon rather than being deployed to Syria.
The western media has completely ignored Israel’s role in the conflict, but Israel has never denied that it periodically bombs Syria:
Netanyahu has said that Israel has carried out dozens of strikes to prevent weapons smuggling to the Iranian-backed Lebanese group Hezbollah via Syria.
Or as the Times of Israel puts it:
Despite Russia’s alliance with Iran and Hezbollah in Syria, Israel has reportedly carried out a number of airstrikes against weapons convoys heading to Lebanon, vowing that it won’t let advanced missile systems or chemical weapons fall into Hezbollah’s hands.
Moscow has repeatedly stated that Hezbollah has played a decisive role in combating ISIS and other terrorist groups in Syria — which will make any future Israeli war against Hezbollah a serious diplomatic crisis.
Israel has also found other creative ways of trying to impose its will on Syria:
Israel has been providing logistic support and medical assistance to opposition forces – including Jabhet al-Nusra terror organization – fighting President Bashar Assad.
Israeli warplanes have repeatedly targeted Syrian Army positions under the pretext of preventing sophisticated weapons from reaching the Lebanese Hezbollah group.
Yes, Netanyahu came to Moscow and cried about Iran. But if you think Israel is interested in joining the real world — think again.
Alternet: Hezbollah, Israel Brace for All-Out Conflict
Both parties know that the scale of a new war will dwarf the 2006 conflict, a reality that has helped ensure a mutual deterrence.
By Nicholas Blanford / The Arab Weekly March 10, 2017
The renewed focus on Iran by the Trump administration has spurred an outbreak of sabre-rattling in Lebanon and Israel and raised concerns that the calm that has existed along the border for more than a decade may be coming to an end.
In Lebanon, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah has warned that “there will be no red lines” in the next war with Israel and threatened to strike the Dimona nuclear reactor in the Negev desert and ammonia plants in Haifa with devastating results should Israel attack Lebanon.
In response, an Israeli government minister promised that “all Lebanon would be hit” if Hezbollah attacked the Israeli home front.
Since the last war between Hezbollah and Israel ended in August 2006, the border between the two countries has enjoyed its longest period of calm since the mid-1960s but the inconclusive end to the 2006 conflict, when Hezbollah fought Israel to a standstill, has long fuelled expectations of a second round.
Even so, the calm endured — until the 2011 “Arab spring” upheaval and the war in Syria drew attention away from the Lebanon-Israel border.
The anti-Iran (and by extension anti-Hezbollah) rhetoric emanating from the White House has raised fears that another conflict may be building up.
However, both parties know that the scale of a new war will dwarf the 2006 conflict, a reality that has helped ensure a mutual deterrence.
Hezbollah has expanded enormously in terms of manpower, weaponry and experience in the last decade. Israel has retrained its army since its 2006 debacle and acquired new weapons and technologies.
The traditional theatre of conflict has long been limited to south Lebanon and northern Israel. Next time, the entire territories of both countries will be the battleground.
Israel will face barrages of missiles raining on its cities and towns as well as Hezbollah fighters storming across the border and possibly infiltrating by sea.
Lebanon will likely witness a level of destruction unseen since its 1975-90 civil war.
Some Israeli strategists argue that in the next conflict Israel should treat all Lebanon as the enemy, rather than just Hezbollah, and target the trappings of the state such as infrastructure and the Lebanese Army.
“A war against Lebanon, which will inflict heavy damage on all of the country’s infrastructures, will spark an international outcry for a ceasefire after three days rather than after 33 days like in the second Lebanon war,” Giora Eiland, former head of Israel’s National Security Council, wrote recently in the Yedioth Ahranoth daily.
“It is only from a really short war that Israel will be able to emerge victorious and without serious damage to its home front.”
The flaw in Eiland’s analysis is contained in the second sentence. It presupposes that Hezbollah, cowed by the destruction unleashed on Lebanon, will simply stop fighting or bow to political pressure to halt the combat.
But it is not in Hezbollah’s character to hand Israel victory on a plate. The Party of God has an interest in extending a war for as long as it can.
By prolonging the destruction in Lebanon, it would hope to foster international criticism of Israel, hasten diplomatic efforts to achieve a ceasefire on terms perhaps more beneficial to Hezbollah and allow the organisation more time to inflict damage on the Israeli military and Israel’s home front.
Israel’s population is unlikely to tolerate a war that brings normal life to a halt for weeks, placing tremendous pressure on the Israeli government to end the conflict.
The focus on Hezbollah in recent years has been on the party’s intervention in Syria rather than its 3-decade struggle against Israel.
But Hezbollah’s leadership is acutely aware that an Israeli government may conclude that there will never be a better time to launch an offensive against its old enemy than while Hezbollah is fighting in Syria.
Hezbollah is still very focused on the front with Israel with many of its top fighters, especially anti-tank missile teams and rocket units, remaining in Lebanon rather than being deployed to Syria.
For two months, plain-clothes Hezbollah units have been conducting a thorough but low-key survey of the Israeli border, taking extensive measurements of terrain, including slope gradients, and photographing Israel’s new defences on the other side of the frontier fence, sources in south Lebanon say.
The survey, which is part operational planning and part psychological needling of Israeli troops, underlines that Hezbollah’s anti-Israel activities have not slowed despite the party’s heavy commitments in Syria.
Both Israel and Hezbollah repeatedly say that they do not want a war and that mutual deterrence remains strong.
However, Israel has pushed the envelope more than Hezbollah in recent years with assassinations of key Hezbollah figures and air strikes against suspected arms depots or convoys carrying new weapons from Syria.
Hezbollah has been careful to tailor its reprisal operations so they do not upset the balance of terror but if another war does break out, it is likely to be the result of a miscalculation by one side or the other that quickly spirals out of control before either party can dial it back.
I see by the Internet reports that Anthony Weiner is going to squeal on Bill and Hillary to save his own neck. I wish to ring an old bell here for Canadian Bloggers on this site who may remember the Pierre Trudeau era.
Do you remember back in the Pierre Trudeau days how the Toronto Star and CBC News ran interference for Trudeau by supporting his idea that “The government does not belong in the bedrooms of the Nation”?
The purpose of this was to gut the RCMP by taking away it independence and bringing it under liberal control, and this was done to a large extent by making the RCMP multi cultural and taking away its anti-espionage role and handing that role over to CSIS.
The old RCMP was a great organization and free from political interference in the days of Commissioner Nicholson. I knew Nicholson’s Bat Boy Lloyd Libke fairly well. he just died at Age 92. I last went to his house when he was 90 and he looked 60. I thought he would live forever.
Anyhow the reason Trudeau started his campaign “to really get the RCMP out of his bedroom” and trashed the RCMP is because he was afraid of what they had on him, what they knew about what was going on in his bedroom, and not because of the bedrooms of the nation.
This is because Trudeau, like may other politicians was a child molester and bi-sexual. That is why his wife Margaret hung around seedy bars like Studio 54 in New York and took up with rock bands the Rolling Stones. She was looking for action. I sometimes wonder if Justin Trudeau is Mick Jagger’s son.
The reason Trudeau was worried about a sex scandal is because he saw the government of John Dieffenbaker brought down by a single story. A friend of mine named Bob Reguly discovered Canada’s Minister of Defence, Pierre Sevigny, was sleeping with a Stasi Agent named Gerda Munsinger.
That one front page story in the Toronto Star brought down the government of John Dieffenbaker and Trudeau, who had all kinds of sexual skeltons in his closet (He was sleeping with a man who was the leading communist spy in Canada at the time), realized he could easily be brought down, too, so he pro-actively trashed the RCMP.
He was supported in this endeavour by the Toronto Star and by the CBC. The CBC was set up by English socialists, ex-BBC, and like the BBC is the kind of place where they separate the men from the boys with a crow bar.
The honey trap has been used since time immemorial to trap politicians and to lever them, and the story of Pierre Trudeau trashing the RCMP to get them out of “out of the bedrooms of the Nation” is yet one more example.
There is alot of empty prattle about “investigative” journalism. First of all its the duty of all journalist to”investigate”. There is no need for the adjective.
The term was introduced into the English langauge in reference to Robert Redford’s film about the Watergate Scandal. He anointed Bernstein and Woodward as “investigaive” journalists and even Oliver “Jew Boy” Stone used a bit of footage from that film when he anointed Israeli supporter IP Stone in a documentary.
In fact Bernstein and Woodward were nothing more than stenographers. They demonstrated all the grit and determination needed to answer the telephone so a Jew, code-named “Deep Throat,” could tell them what was going on. They didn’t dig up anything.
By comparison Bob Reguly was assigned to find an American gangster named Hal Banks that the FBVOI and RCMP had been looking for for three years. Bob found Hal Banks in one day. That is a real investigative reporter.
Bob won at least three national newspaper Awards for the Toronto Star, I think more than anyone else ever has, and they fired him because their Jewish advertisers ganged up on him because of what he reported about Israel.
The publisher Beland Honderic fired his Editor Jim Hornick because not only did Hornick refuse to lie to his staff, he called them all into his office, with Honderich present, and told them what Honderich had done.
So you have lots of utterly worthless journalist out there like Wolf Blitzer and Christiane Anampour, but every once in a while you get the Real Thing. The best way I can think of to describe People like Bob and Jim are the lines of the British Poet Spender who wrote;
“Born of the Sun,
they travelled a short way towards the Sun,
and left the vivid air,
signed with their honour.”
You compare Morris to CNN? what a joke.
Br Nat, Trump is owned by the deep state and all far right parties are owned by the Zionists. Marie LePen betrayed her father what to expect from such person?
She never criticizes Israel–same goes for those clowns in Netherlands. Far right parties were created to divide and conquer…
North Korea fires missile, defying Us push for new sanctions
North Korea test-shot a ballistic rocket on April 29 in clear disobedience of a deliberate US push for harder global approvals to check Pyongyang’s atomic weapons desire.
The most recent dispatch, which South Korea said was a disappointment, came hours after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson cautioned the UN Security Chamber of “disastrous outcomes” if the global group - most eminently China - neglected to weight the North into surrendering its weapons program.
Military choices for managing the North were still “on the table”, Tillerson cautioned in his initially deliver to the UN body.
The dispatch fastens up pressures on the Korean landmass, with Washington and Pyongyang secured an ever-more tightly winding of risk, counter-danger and heightening military readiness.
US President Donald Trump, who has cautioned of a “noteworthy clash” with North Korean pioneer Kim Jong-Un’s administration, said the most recent test was a directed censure toward China - the North’s principle partner and monetary help.
“North Korea removed the wishes of China & its exceptionally regarded President when it pushed, in any case unsuccessfully, a missile today. Bad!” Donald Trump tweeted.
The US is sending a maritime strike aggregate driven by a plane carrying warship to the Korean landmass, and a rocket resistance framework called Terminal High Elevation Region Guard (THAAD) that authorities say will be operational “inside days”.
North Korea as of late led its greatest steadily terminating drill and has undermined to “cover adrift” the US plane carrying warship, in the midst of signs it could get ready for a 6th atomic test.
South Korea’s safeguard service said it speculated Saturday’s rocket test had flopped after a concise flight, while the US military’s Pacific Summon affirmed the rocket did not leave North Korean domain.
South Korea denounced the dispatch, with outside service representative Cho June-Hyuck saying that if the North kept on playing “with flame”, it would “confront solid correctional strides in different levels”, including from the UN Security Committee.
Japan has held up a “genuine challenge and feedback” toward the North, Boss Bureau Secretary Yoshihide Suga told journalists after a national Security Board meeting.
China pushed back at Tillerson’s call at the UN Security Chamber for it to accomplish more to get control over Pyongyang, contending that it was unlikely to anticipate that one nation will tackle the contention.
“The utilization of compel does not unravel contrasts and will just prompt greater calamities,” Chinese Outside Clergyman Wang Yi said.
His nation, he stated, ought not be “a point of convergence of the issue on the landmass” and focused on that “the way to understanding the atomic issue on the projection does not lie in the hands of the Chinese side”..
Russia joined China in engaging for an arrival to talks and de-acceleration.
Military activity was “totally unsuitable”, Russian Representative Outside Pastor Gennady Gatilov told the gathering, and a miscount could have “terrifying results”.
“The danger of a North Korean atomic assault on Seoul or Tokyo is genuine, and it is likely just a short time before North Korea builds up the ability to strike the US territory.”
The meeting of the top UN body on Friday uncovered significant contrasts among key controls over the best approach to address the North Korea emergency.
In the course of recent years, the Security Board has forced six arrangements of authorizations on Pyongyang - two embraced a year ago - to fundamentally increase weight and deny the North Korean organization the hard money salary required for its military ventures.
Yet, UN sanctions specialists have over and over told the chamber the measures have had little effect since they have been ineffectively executed.
Tillerson approached all nations to downsize or separate political relations with North Korea and force focused on approvals on elements and people supporting its rocket and atomic program.
The Unified States is prepared to force authorizes on third nations where organizations or people are found to have helped North Korea’s military projects, he said.
China rather needs Pyongyang to stop its military ventures as an end-result of a conclusion to US-South Korean yearly bores.
“Right now is an ideal opportunity to truly consider talks,” said Wang.
In any case, Tillerson was limit in saying it was dependent upon North Korea to make the principal solid strides.
“We won’t arrange our way back to the arranging table,” he said. “We won’t remunerate their awful conduct with talks.”
The Assembled States, Russia and China partook in six-party chats on North Korea’s denuclearisation from 2003 to 2009, alongside Japan, South Korea and Pyongyang.
