From Cohn To Cohen In Trump’s Camp

Jewish Agenda Articles, President Trump

From Cohn To Cohen In Trump’s Camp
By Brother Nathanael Kapner December 18, 2018 ©

ROY COHN, JEWISH HOMOSEXUAL MOBSTER, mentored Trump and taught him everything he knows and then some.

Forged in 1973, the kinship began when Cohn defended the 27-year-old Trump against a federal racial discrimination lawsuit.

Cohn filed a counter-suit accusing the DOJ and FBI of engaging in ‘Gestapo-like tactics’ and labeling the investigators as ‘undercover agents’ and ‘storm troopers.’

Sound familiar? Cohn was an attack dog, and like teacher like pupil.

Against his father’s wishes, young Trump set his eyes on Manhattan, a real-estate market owned by Jews and operated by the Italian mafia construction business, hoping to expand his persona into a NYC superstar.

He soon hooked up with Cohn who taught Trump that the New York Establishment would ignore unscrupulous acts to serve its interests.

Every single public defense and attack tactic Trump uses now, along with his business law ethics, he learned from Roy Cohn, whose entire legal ethic could be summed up as “F—the legal system!”

Carting the lesson-plan over to a presidential chalkboard gets a little chalky since the Jew-owned media sticks its hooked nose into legislative affairs and throws a media matzah ball into the Beltway borscht.

TRUMP MET MICHAEL COHEN, a brash young Jewish lawyer with ‘chutzpah’ that Trump liked, particularly the attitude of ‘F—the legal system,’ in the early 2000’s.

Cohen was no occasional attorney for hire.

He was a vice-president of The Trump Organization and counsel to Trump. He previously served as co-president of Trump Entertainment and was a board member of the Eric Trump Foundation, a children’s health charity.

Then from 2017 to 2018, Cohen was deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee. The Jew had risen to high places in his tribe’s political palace. Cohen was no political small-fry.

And with an office next to Trump’s for 12 years, there’s little doubt that Trump did some ‘mentoring’ of his own, passing on the lesson-plan of mobbed-up Roy Cohn.

Michael Cohen learned how to lie for Trump and brazen it out as Donald’s pit bull when Trump came under scrutiny or got into trouble.

Cohen did plenty of murky, if not downright dirty, work for the Trump clan, both making and involved in mafia contacts and international business deals.

Cohen’s full representation for the Trump business orbit is little known, (but one can guess), for that which has been made public only relates directly to the core national security question of the hyped-up “Russiagate.”

Too bad the same kind of national security scrutiny isn’t paid to Israel and the Jewish Lobby.

“Russiagate” should be “Israelgate.”

It is right there in plain sight, and has been all along.

    Brother Nathanael,

    Is Donald Trump as Jewish as Joseph Trumpeldor, founder of the IDF?

    Trump I have heard is Yiddish for camp. BTW, trumpeldor means camp of god.

    It is also funny the Trump Organization Vice-President Jason Greenblatt shares a surname with ADL boss Jonathan Greenblatt.

    Are we sure that the Russians involved in the so called “Russiagate” are not actually dual citizen Russian Israeli IDF?

    How come Soviet Jews, Ukrainian Orthodox Christians, and Ukrainian Catholics are as per the Lautenberg Amendment of 1990 given special asylum status and US citizenship?

    RECENT Comment From AJ On Former Posting
    Bravo again and Godspeed +BN!

    Glad you’re regaining focus. Readers don’t neglect to make more donations if you can!

    Despite their power the Jews continue to overreach and are playing a dangerous game in the Western World.

    They’ve forced homo/trannies on pre-pubescent minors in schools. An 11 yr old here in New York was dancing in drag in a NYC gay bar

    I fear the gay community may face more hate crimes and social backlash because of these events. But as always it’s Jews who are the real aggressors attacking Christian society. While Christians in the U.S. used to be very vocal in stopping acceptance of homosexuality, the reaction I’ve seen with these events has been remarkably timid.

    We’re not going to be able to offer a challenge to the Jews by reasoning with them or with pleas to morality.

    Gentiles need to understand that the Jewish mind is inherently different from non-Jews. As Gentiles we are reasoning beings, but most Jews are CUNNING (their predominate mental trait they’ve retained by generations of Jewish inbreeding). The racial aspect is a very important piece of the Jewish puzzle and the Jews have succeeded in deflecting any open discussion of it.

    Why don’t all the leaders of the nations ban together to solve this greatest of all problems facing the World? Jews are a minuscule % of the World’s population (~14million Jews among 5 billion + non-Jews).

    The stupid jingoism of Americans and the Trump administration prevents them from seeing the Jewish problem as a World problem, not just the U.S. Hitler successfully ridded Jewish influence in the Third Reich through German nationalism only to have later incurred the demonic wrath of the International Jews who forced WWII on the Aryan/Axis nations.

    We need more Americans and everyone to take initiative with fundraising for BroNat and his ilk. America alone is a nation of over 300 million people! Big dollars can very easily be raised. The Jews look down on the goyim and think we will never rise up but the power is in our hands!

  10. The Accusers December 19, 2018 @ 12:17 am

    A favorite tactic of the Jews is to accuse their victims of what Jews themselves are doing. The Jew Saul Alinsky included it in Rules for Radicals.

    Accusing seems to be a trait Jews get from their father Satan the Accuser –

    Jews create lies like the Russia Collusion Story to make it appear that Russia is rigging US elections instead of the Rothschild Banksters, Israel, the Mossad, the Jews Media, Zionism Inc – Jews who actually rig elections.

    Jew-gate would be the big media story instead of Russia-gate if mass media was run by honest people instead of Jews accusing the innocent of crimes committed by guilty Jews.

    When the Jews Media accuses Russia of something rotten, it’s very likely that Zionists actually did it.

    The Zionists accomplish 2 big objectives by their phony accusations against Russia –

    1. Accusing Russia shifts the focus on election rigging from Zionism to Russia.

    2. The Russia Collusion scam provides a pretext for Jews to use government to get dirt on Trump, which can be used for blackmail, election meddling, and control.

    How many of us have really examined the historical “truths” in our textbooks and presented on television about the Federal Reserve Board, the World Wars, Pearl Harbor, the Kennedy Assassinations and that of Martin Luther King?

    Have you ever heard of Deir Yassin? The Lavon Affair? The USS Liberty Attack? The Pollard Spy Case? The real story on 9-11?


  12. Israhell December 19, 2018 @ 1:33 am

    You have to be willfully dumb not to realize that 9/11 was organized by Mossad.

    Anyone with basic investigative skills must have known the whole operation was a false flag within hours of it happening.

    Cheney knew all about it & the level of co-ordination required to stage a 9/11 required not only vast intelligence agency input but also civil, corporate, media & military assistance & FULL US Government co-ordination.

    God bless you, dear +BN.

    Great to read your Articles again. I always appreciate the research that you do and link to.

    And congratulations are in order for your splendid idea and planned launch of an email newsletter. I will be looking forward to it.

    You’ve been on the Trump-Cohn mobster connections from the beginning when Trump announced his campaign run in 2015, as well as the Netanyahu/Likudnik colonization of the White House through the Kushners and all of Trump’s Zionist Jewish pals and his old pro-Settler attorneys.

    After looking at Roy Cohn and Michael Cohen, I had the overwhelming urge to go take a bath in bleach.

    Indeed, “Russiagate” should be “Israelgate”.

    I was very surprised to read in the American Herald Tribune that you linked to an excerpt from the New York Times date December 1, 2017 about Flynn’s efforts on behalf of the Adelson/Israel bought and paid for Trump transition team to subvert an Obama foreign policy decision to be effected at a UNSC assembly that the AHT quoted.

    I remember this big flap then, in the midst of other big flaps, but it has certainly not been brought up much in the MSM, much less Faux News since then in the whole Trump-Russia mess.

    The context was the issue of the Obama administration’s then upcoming abstention from the UN Security Council vote on Resolution 2334 was adopted by the UN Security Council in December 2016 by a vote of 14-0.

    The resolution explicitly denounced Israel’s ongoing colonial settler policies in the occupied territories.

    The US has always abstained or vetoed the passage of similar resolutions up until this one.

    To recap what happened back in early December 2016 after the election:

    A Palestinian delegation met with Obama administration officials to discuss a draft of the resolution that they intended to introduce.

    At that time, Western diplomatic sources suggested that the administration might go along with it if some of the clauses were toned down, which was done.

    Haaretz: Palestinians try to sway Obama not to Veto UN resolution on settlements

    The resolution was introduced at the UNSC by Egypt in a surprise move.

    After Israeli pressure and a press statement issued by President-elect Trump influenced Egypt to delay the vote, it was re-introduced by four other non-permanent Security Council members (New Zealand, Malaysia, Senegal and Venezuela) and quickly passed.

    Israel of course opposed the draft resolution and does not sit on the UNSC as a veto power, so Netanyahu pushed Trump’s Office of the Court Jew and the whole demonic Likudnik cabal in Trump’s Camp to talk to Russia and the other UNSC veto powers. The Trump-elect transition team brazenly went into furious motion all over the place trying to tank the UNSC resolution, particularly focusing on Russia.

    Mr. Ordinary Civilian Flynn, formal Trump surrogate as National Security Advisor-in transition, then contacted Ambassador Kislyak about getting Russia to commit to vetoing the pending resolution and thereby kill it.

    “President-elect” is not any sort of official title nor is there any sort of official capacity to make administrative and policy decisions.

    Remember, at the time Trump was still an ordinary civilian with no official powers and so was the rest of his transition team who were working to subvert the official actions of the duly elected and official POTUS and his administration, no matter how much we disliked Obama at the time.

    Flynn reached out to Russian Ambassador to the US Sergei Kislyak representing and lobbying for another country, Israel, to urge Russia to veto the resolution.

    Since this is also somehow tied in with Obama’s sanctions against Russia and the expulsion of the Russian diplomats, Flynn, on the Trump transition team, could very well have offered a quid pro quo: Tank the resolution and when Trump takes office, we’ll lift the sanctions.

    Kislyak, on behalf of Russia declined the request, and there it should have stopped, the matter dropped.

    It came back up in the Trump-Russia investigation, and then Flynn lied about his part in the Trump-transition team’s efforts to reach out to the Russians. Was it for the good of America? No, it was all for the benefit of Israel.

    Was it illegal for the Trump Campaign and transition team to talk to the Russian officials before inauguration? No, not if it is for gathering information concerning Trump’s own future White House policies.

    Lying about it is.

    “AHT: Getting back to the resolution fiasco, the circumstances of Mike Flynn’s recent guilty plea complete the picture. Per the New York Times:

    New York Times [quote]: According to prosecutors, on Dec. 22, Mr. Flynn discussed with Mr. Kislyak an upcoming United Nations Security Council vote on whether to condemn Israel’s building of settlements. At the time, the Obama administration was preparing to allow a Security Council vote on the matter.

    Mr. Mueller’s investigators have learned through witnesses and documents that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel asked the Trump transition team to lobby other countries to help Israel, according to two people briefed on the inquiry. Investigators have learned that Mr. Flynn and Mr. Kushner took the lead in those efforts.

    Mr. Mueller’s team has emails that show Mr. Flynn saying he would work to kill the vote, the people briefed on the matter said.[end quote]”

    AHT continues: That is, the FBI (our secret police) has proof that Trump’s transition team was colluding with Israel behind Obama’s back to scuttle the settlement resolution.

    Flynn’s December 22 conversation with Kislyak, now being brandished as evidence of collusion with Russia, was for the benefit of Israel.

    The call was made at Israel’s urging. Without Israel’s meddling the conversation would never have taken place.

    Furthermore, the Israelis themselves have suggested that they directly spy on, or have moles working inside of, the US government. Or both.

    And if you’re genuinely concerned about improper contact during the campaign, as the neo-McCarthyists profess to be, it certainly bears recalling that both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump met with Netanyahu two months before the election and swore fealty to the Jewish State.

    Not to mention the obscene amount of money spilled into both campaigns—and in fact every major political campaign in recent memory—by organizations whose sole allegiance is to Israel; organizations, mind you, that have not filed as foreign agents under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. The dots connect themselves.”

    Ma’an News Agency (Palestine): Armed Israeli settlers raid Saint Saba Monastery near Bethlehem

    DEC. 18, 2018 12:17 P.M. (UPDATED: DEC. 18, 2018 4:26 P.M.)

    BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Hundreds of armed Israeli settlers raided Saint Saba Monastery (Mar Saba) area, near the al-Ubeidiya village east of the southern occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem, on predawn Tuesday.

    Security sources told the Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa News Agency that hundreds of armed Israeli settlers raided the Greek Orthodox monastery area and performed religious rituals, under armed security by Israeli soldiers.

    Locals reported that this is a first that Israeli settlers raid the Saint Saba Monastery, located 15 kilometers from Bethlehem City.
    The monastery is considered one of the oldest inhabited monasteries in the world.

    The raid came in time as many Palestinian Christians had headed to the monastery, late Monday and overnight, to perform prayers at the church inside the monastery to celebrate Saint Saba’s Feast.

    Mint Press News: Child Sex Slavery Ring Run by Former Israeli Soldier Dismantled by Colombian Police

    The girls were forced to be part of a WhatsApp group called “Purim” – an apparent reference to the Jewish holiday – where they were pressured and intimidated as well as summoned to areas frequented by Israeli tourists.

    by Whitney Webb

    MEDELLÍN, COLOMBIA — A large child sex slavery ring overseen by Israelis was dismantled by Colombian police earlier this week, in a story that has shocked Colombia and much of Latin America but received minimal coverage from mainstream Western media outlets.

    The network had been active since 2011 and expressly “recruited” young, underage females in situations of economic hardship or domestic abuse to work as “sex slaves” catering to Israeli tourists visiting Colombia.

    Colombian authorities first began to investigate the sex slavery network in June 2016 following the murder of Israeli citizen Shay Azran in the Colombian city of Medellín.

    Soon after, Azran’s murderer was found to be another Israeli, Assi Ben Mush, an ex-IDF soldier who was known for his past involvement in both drug and human trafficking in the early 2000s. However, Mush was never arrested for Azran’s murder.

    As authorities delved deeper into Mush’s current activities while investigating the homicide, they determined that he was the owner of a hostel in Cartagena, Colombia and that he was also one of the coordinators of “tourism” packages sold exclusively to Israeli men visiting Colombia.

    According to judicial sources cited by El Colombiano, the tourism packages sold by Mush and his cohorts involved taking Israeli men – most of them businessmen or men who recently ended their compulsory military service in the IDF [the notorious “Israeli backpackers” – Kj] – to parties at a variety of locales such as hostels, hotels, farms and yachts, where the main attraction was the sexual exploitation of underage women and the mass consumption of narcotics and alcohol.

    The sites where the exploitation occurred offered lodging or services exclusively to Israeli tourists, a practice that is surprisingly common in frequented tourist destinations throughout South America.

    Mush was expelled from Colombia in November of last year after a massive sex party was broken up by police and illicit drugs were found at the scene. By that time, authorities had already determined the existence of the network and his accomplices.

    As a result of the multi-year investigation, 14 Israeli citizens were determined to comprise the network along with two Colombians, one of whom was a police officer.

    Yet, while 16 arrest warrants have been issued, only seven arrests have been made, five of which were Israeli and the remaining two Colombian. The network was found to extend through several Colombian cities – Santa Marta, Medellín and Cartagena – and was initially difficult to detect, as those running the network hid their real activities behind legitimate commercial establishments such as hotels and spas.

    Colombian police characterized the network as specifically seeking out vulnerable Colombian female minors in area schools — especially those in difficult economic situations or living in homes where domestic abuse was common — and luring them into sex work.

    The underage girls were said to have received between 200,000 and 400,000 Colombian pesos (~$63 and $126) for each encounter with the Israeli men traveling abroad.

    In addition, the girls were forced to be part of a WhatsApp group called “Purim” – an apparent reference to the Jewish holiday – where they were pressured and intimidated as well as summoned to areas frequented by Israeli tourists.

    While somewhat better than its Western counterparts, still lots of shlomos are hiding beneath the surface at RT and its message boards.

    They will definitely delete posts that name the Jew.

    Also, RT has taken to pushing SEX at their site, at least at the American site. This is a fairly recent development.

    Just be aware that their m.o. often parallels what we see in the Western msm.

    Eurasia Future: Korybko: Don’t Be Fooled, Trump’s “Withdrawal” From Syria Isn’t What It Seems

    Trump’s decision to “withdraw” US troops from Syria is being universally praised by all but his “deep state” foes, but things aren’t exactly as they seem and the celebrations might be premature because this deceptive move simply changes the nature of the Hybrid Wars on Syria, Iran, and Pakistan by making them less kinetic but nevertheless equally dangerous.

    Trump supposedly “defied” his foes in America’s permanent military, intelligence, and diplomatic bureaucracies (“deep state”) by ordering the “withdrawal” of American troops from Syria, which is being celebrated across the world as a pragmatic peacemaking gesture that’s long overdue.

    The fact of the matter, however, is that this isn’t the so-called “retreat” that some in the Alt-Media are portraying it as but is actually a cunning move for more cost-effectively advancing the US’ military, political, and ultimately strategic objectives in the Arab Republic and beyond.

    On the surface, it appears to some that Trump flinched in the face of Erdogan’s threat to commence an anti-terrorist intervention east of the Euphrates in the US-occupied corner of Syria and basically betrayed America’s Kurdish allies there, but the “withdrawal” should instead be seen as keeping the Kurds in check and preempting a possible Turkish campaign against them there by getting them to curb their ambitions as part of a pragmatic US-brokered deal between them an Ankara.

    Still, even if Turkey does indeed intervene, then that doesn’t necessarily mean that the YPG-led SDF will be destroyed.

    Most observers overlooked the US Special Representative for Syria’s statement earlier this month that his country was deliberating the creation of an Iraqi-style “no-fly zone” following a possible withdrawal of its grounds from there, which the author drew attention to in his piece at the time about how “The US Might Withdraw From Syria If A ‘No-Fly Zone’ Is Imposed In The Northeast”.

    The argument put forth in that analysis is that it would be much more cost-effective and less risky for the US to control the agriculturally, hydrologically, and energy-rich corner of Northeastern Syria from the air through a “no-fly zone” than through “boots on the ground”.

    Under such a scenario, which is veritably plausible following Trump’s public reassurance that the “withdrawal” doesn’t imply the end of its military mission in Syria, the US and some of its “Coalition of the Willing” allies could maintain control of the region through aerial means and therefore keep Turkish, Syria, and especially Iranian forces at bay if they violate the so-called “deconfliction line” that the Pentagon imposed along the Euphrates over the past two years.

    This could ensure that the US-backed but Kurdish-controlled SDF doesn’t lose its predominant position in the region even in the event that Turkey launches a small-scale intervention there because it could ultimately be “contained” by the US and its allies’ de-facto “no-fly zone”.

    Thus, given that the “withdrawal” of American troops probably won’t have any practical on-the-ground consequences, this move should therefore be seen as a mostly political one aimed at achieving several objectives.

    Most immediately, the optics of an American military “withdrawal” from Syria are supposed to catalyze the stalled peace process and create the conditions for pronounced international pressure to be brought upon Iran to follow suit, which is in alignment with President Putin’s unofficial peace plan for the country which the author touched upon in his piece last month about how “Russia’s Non-Denial About Brokering Iran’s Withdrawal From Syria Is A Big Deal”.

    Furthermore, “Israel’s” publicly expressed concerns over this development could push it even further under Russian tutelage as Moscow progressively replaces Washington as Tel Aviv’s patron per the model that the author described in his summer analysis about how “It’s Official, ‘Israel’ Is Now A Joint Russian-American Protectorate”.

    In hindsight, it shouldn’t be seen as a coincidence that Russian and “Israeli” military officials recently visited one another in the run-up to Trump’s announcement, suggesting that they were either informed of it in advance or accurately forecast this development and decided to publicly intensify their military relations with each other in response.

    Apart from the Syrian-related analytical angle, Trump is also signaling to the Taliban (whether sincerely or not) that the US is seriously contemplating pulling its troops out of Afghanistan too, which is the group’s main condition for continuing the unofficial peace talks between the two sides.

    That said, it’s doubtful that the US would surrender its strategic presence in the tri-regional crossroads between Central, South, and West Asia and will probably end up replacing any of its “withdrawn” troops with mercenaries, which might be a “face-saving compromise” between itself and the Taliban but one which might deliberately drive a wedge between the so-called “moderate” and “hardline” factions of the second-mentioned and possibly “provoke” dissatisfied elements to “defect” to Daesh (which could in turn be blamed on Pakistan for escalating the ongoing Hybrid War on that country).

    Lastly, Trump wants to show the American public that he’s keeping his campaign pledge to (at least conventionally) draw down the War on Syria following the Republicans’ loss of the House last month and ahead of the 2020 elections, knowing that the Democrats will hold his feet to the fire over that unfulfilled pledge and weaponize it as part of election campaign against him if he doesn’t make visible progress on that front (and possibly also in Afghanistan too per the aforementioned scenario).

    In view of this, domestic political interests might have also played an influential role behind Trump’s decision and the specific timing thereof.

    Altogether, while the US’ “withdrawal” from Syria is certainly a welcoming move that will undoubtedly do a lot to advance the stalled peace process in the war-torn country, it’s nevertheless much more of a cunning strategy aimed at comprehensively advancing a wide range of interests than the supposed “retreat” that some are “victoriously” celebrating it as.

    The US’ Hybrid Wars against Syria, Iran, and also Pakistan aren’t stopping any time soon, but it’s just that they’re evolving in response to new conditions and taking on less kinetic forms that are still more than capable of creatively shaping events in America’s favor so long as its intended targets don’t understand the nature of the new threats that they’re facing.

    PM of Israel

    PM Netanyahu: “I spoke with @POTUS Donald Trump on Monday and with @SecPompeo yesterday. The US administration told me that it is the President’s intention to withdraw their forces from Syria. They made it clear that they have other ways of expressing their influence in the area
    11:35 AM – Dec 19, 2018


    So, are the 18 or so US bases and outposts in Eastern Syria going to be taken over by CIA special forces and private contractors to manage the Kurdish-led Syrian Defense Forces from hereon in?

    Powerful security tycoon Eric Prince of notorious and vile Blackwater-Iraq fame, Betsy DeVos’ brother and good pal of both Steve Bannon and Lt Gen. Ret. Michael Flynn, comes to mind as the possible contractor replacing the US military.

    Prince’s ambitions for a privatized imperial-colonial commercial American Raj over Afghanistan modeled on the old British East India Company for at least a year and much longer, at least as early as when the Trump Campaign kicked off, or at least went into high gear after the primaries.

    Prince has been romancing the DC circuit ever since then. Afghanistan has enormous reserves of just rare earth minerals alone.

    Buzzfeed exposed Prince over a year ago, and published his secret PowerPoint presentation pitched to the Trump administration.


    Private War: Erik Prince Has His Eye On Afghanistan’s Rare Metals (2017)

    Controversial private security tycoon Erik Prince has famously pitched an audacious plan to the Trump administration: Hire him to privatize the war in Afghanistan using squads of “security contractors.”

    Now, for the first time, Buzzfeed News is publishing that pitch, a presentation that lays out how Prince wanted to take over the war from the US military — and how he envisioned mining some of the most war-torn provinces in Afghanistan to help fund security operations and obtain strategic mineral resources for the US.

    Prince, who founded the Blackwater security firm and testified last week to the House Intelligence Committee for its Russia investigation, has deep connections into the current White House: He’s friends with former presidential adviser Stephen Bannon, and he’s the brother of Betsy DeVos, the education secretary.

    Prince briefed top Trump administration officials directly, talked up his plan publicly on the DC circuit, and published op-eds about it.

    He patterned the strategy he’s pitching on the historical model of the old British East India Company, which had its own army and colonized much of Britain’s empire in India.

    “An East India Company approach,” he wrote in the Wall Street Journal, “would use cheaper private solutions to fill the gaps that plague the Afghan security forces, including reliable logistics and aviation support.”

    But the details have never been made public. Here is the never-before-published slide presentation for his pitch, which a source familiar with the matter said was prepared for the Trump administration.

    One surprising element is the commercial promise Prince envisions: that the US will get access to Afghanistan’s rich deposits of minerals such as lithium, used in batteries; uranium; magnesite; and “rare earth elements,” critical metals used in high technology from defense to electronics. One slide estimates the value of mineral deposits in Helmand province alone at $1 trillion.

    The presentation makes it plain that Prince intends to fund the effort through these rich deposits. His plan, one slide says, is “a strategic mineral resource extraction funded effort that breaks the negative security economic cycle.” The slides also say that mining could provide jobs to Afghans.

    “What is laid out in the slides is a model of an affordable way for the US to stabilize a failed state where we are presently wasting American youth and tens of billions of dollars annually,” a Prince spokesperson emailed BuzzFeed News Thursday. [In short, the US will privatize and subsidize Prince’s Afghanistan Raj with US taxpayer dollars so that large corporations given major tax breaks can move in, rape the Afghanis even more, and fatten their corporate profits, wallets, and corporate stockholders. – Kj]

    Defense Secretary James Mattis “did meet with Mr. Prince earlier this year,” a Defense Department spokesperson said. “He meets with people all the time to listen and hear new ideas.” The CIA declined to comment. It’s been widely reported that the Pentagon pushed back against Prince’s concept, and that national security adviser H.R. McMaster was opposed to it as well.

    Prince currently runs a Chinese security and logistics company, as BuzzFeed News has previously reported. Still, in his pitch to America’s policymakers, he plays the US against China. One slide, devoted to “market manipulation in rare earth elements,” presents China as dominating the market for the valuable minerals.

    Ironically, the statement from Prince’s spokesman that said Prince’s Chinese company, Frontier Services Group, would participate in the Afghanistan plan, and “would provide logistics support to the extractive firms with secure transportation and camp support.”
