The HillObama vetoes 9/11 bill

Wayne Madsen ReportSeptember 16-18, 2016 — Neither Hillary nor Obama condemn Wahhabist “Horrorism”

After President Obama made it clear that he intends to veto the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) bill, which would lift the sovereign immunity of Saudi Arabia and, thus, allow the oil-rich kingdom to be sued in U.S. courts as a sponsor of the 9/11 attacks against the United States, the Hillary Clinton campaign went into silent mode.

It has been clear that neither Obama nor Clinton want to hold Saudi Arabia and other Wahhabist-ruled or -influenced regimes accountable for the jihadist rhetoric that emanates from the Wahhabist imams who call for “holy war” in their nations’ mosques and madrassa schools. The Wahhabist penchant for violence against non-Wahhabist Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, and just about anyone who rejects their radical and inhuman religious beliefs has received a pass from Obama, Clinton, and their most fervent supporters…

Every time an horrorist attack occurs, Obama and Mrs. Clinton can be relied on to describe Islam as a religion of peace. But Islam is not a monolithic religion. While most Sunni and Shi’a, as well as Alawite, Alevi, Sufi, Ibadi, Quranist, Zikri Mahdavi, Zaidi, Ahmadiyyah, Ismaili, and Mu’tazili sects are moderate, the Wahhabis and their Salafist and Muslim Brotherhood associates are not. Wahhabism, Salafism, and the Muslim Brotherhood are practitioners of horrorism. The Christian Copts of Egypt, the Christians of Nigeria, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Pakistan, and Indonesia have seen this horrorism first hand.

WMR has learned from European intelligence sources that the Wahhabists and their like-minded horrorists are not finished in their new tactic of committing small scale attacks designed to put their enemies on edge.

INTERPOL and its European partner EUROPOL are warning local authorities, including those in the United States, that after suffering huge battlefield defeats in Syria and Iraq, ISIL is adopting a policy of localizing its attacks. Because local attacks do not grab the same huge headlines as major attacks like 9/11, Charlie Hebdo in Paris, Nice, and Brussels, future attacks, while smaller in scale, will be more horrific. Through the placement of new Muslim migrants in communities in Europe, the United States, Canada, and Australia, or the calling up of existing sleeper agents in Muslim communities, ISIL is planning on carrying out horrorist attacks, including beheadings, stabbings, as well as acid and fire attacks, against such “soft targets” as elementary schools, day care centers, private homes and apartments, shopping centers and stores, parks, rail and subway stations, convention centers and trade shows, sporting arenas, theme parks, movie theaters, hotels, restaurants, ferries, churches, hospitals and medical centers, marinas, nursing and funeral homes, country clubs, and social and veterans clubs. The ISIL warning was released in a communiqué titled “No Respite.”…

And then, as read on the free content page of WMR

A day after WMR’s article warned of small scale horririst attacks in U.S. —-> Muslim stabs 8 people at Minnesota shopping mall. STOP—-> Explosions on route of Marine Corps 5K charity run in Seaside Heights, NJ. STOP—->Terrorist explosion at 23rd and 6th Avenues in Manhattan injures 29. This follows Muslim man’s meat cleaver attack at Penn Station and stabbing of two nuns in Mississippi, for which a motive has yet to be announced. Some group is covering up these links to Sunni radical attacks and they smell like the present occupant of the White House and his Wahhabi-loving pick as his successor.

September 13-14, 2016 — SPECIAL 9/11 REPORT. GCC 9/11 perps unite against JASTA bill

President Barack Obama, in signaling that he will veto the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) bill, has the full support of the members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). The JASTA bill, passed on a unanimous voice vote by both houses of the U.S. Congress, would lift the sovereign immunity of any state that sponsors terrorist attacks that kill or injure American citizens. Families of the victims of the 9/11 attacks would be legally permitted to sue Saudi Arabia, which has proven by a Joint Congressional Inquiry into the attacks to have provided material assistance to the 9/11 terrorists, 15 of whom were Saudi nationals. And JASTA would leave open the possibility that other states proven to have been involved in aiding and abetting terrorists who attacked Americans could also see their sovereign immunity suspended, thus rendering them liable to law suits by Americans.

President Obama is currently strong arming certain key members of Congress to prevent a congressional override of his veto, something that would be a first in his eight years in office.

Saudi Arabia was able to convince its fellow members of the GCC to support it and Obama’s planned veto because some GCC members also bear responsibility for the attacks by providing support to the terrorists. These countries, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, and Kuwait, have previously been the subject of WMR investigative reports into their respective roles in the attacks of 9/11.

The Obama administration reluctantly permitted the release of 28 redacted pages from the joint Senate-House joint congressional inquiry into the intelligence failures of 9/11 that was led by Senator Bob Graham, the Democratic chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Portions of the released 28 pages remained redacted and parts of those may have been altered before their release by the Central Intelligence Agency’s sycophantic pro-Saudi director John Brennan. Nevertheless, the released pages demonstrate contact between two of the Saudi hijackers and Abdullah bin Laden, the half-brother of accused 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden. Abdullah bin Laden was a diplomat assigned to the Saudi embassy and he reported to Saudi ambassador Prince Bandar bin Sultan al-Saud. Bandar was and remains so close to the Bush family, he is called “Bandar Bush.”

In addition, the released pages describe Omar al-Bayoumi, a Saudi intelligence officer, of maintaining contact with two of the Saudi hijackers in San Diego. The pages also demonstrate a link between a senior Al Qaeda operative in Pakistan, Abu Zubaydah, to a Colorado business that oversaw the management of the Colorado residence of Prince Bandar.

In supporting their Saudi allies, the GCC countries are worried about contacts between their senior government and intelligence officials and Al Qaeda terrorists becoming known, thus resulting in them being named as defendants in 9/11-related law suits under JASTA.

On August 24, 2009, WMR reported: “WMR has learned from an intelligence source from a NATO country that elements of the CIA have coordinated their activities with top Gulf state officials who have been connected to ‘Al Qaeda’ networks that have planned and financed various terrorist attacks.

A number of the ‘Al Qaeda’-associated officials are veterans of the CIA’s war against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, including a top prince of the Al Thani royal family of Qatar who also serves as a government minister. The prince, who was shot twice in the back while fighting with the Afghan mujaheddin against the Soviets in Afghanistan, maintains close relations with the Taliban in Afghanistan and serves as a conduit between the CIA and both the Taliban and “Al Qaeda.” The prince maintains contact with ‘Al Qaeda’s’ financial network through contacts in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. The Regional Security Officer for the British embassy in Dubai, believed to be an MI-6 official cover, maintains contact with the Qatari prince and his ‘Jihadist’ financial and logistics network in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. This network, allowed to operate with CIA and MI-6 knowledge and soft support, also, according to our source, involves a top official in the government of Abu Dhabi who is close to the Abu Dhabi royal family.”

Abu Dhabi is a member of the United Arab Emirates and Qatar is the host of a large U.S. military base.

WMR’s 2009 report continued: “In 2006, Qatar’s Interior Minister Sheikh Abdullah Bin Khalid Al-Thani rejected a civil judgment against him by a New York federal judge stating that he harbored Al Qaeda’s number three man Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and tipped off Mohammed before a CIA attempt to arrest him in 1996. In fact, WMR has learned that the CIA station at the U.S. embassy in Doha, Qatar has been a key link between the agency and the ‘Al Qaeda’ support network in recent years, even in late 2001 when Al-Thani was accused of harboring both Mohammed and another Al Qaeda operative, Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi, who was later allegedly killed by U.S. forces in Iraq. [Zarqawi was later reported by a U.S. Central Command public affairs officer as a fictional character created as part of a U.S. psychological warfare operation.]

Another individual with whom the CIA in the UAE maintains close contact is Osama Bin Laden’s former financial adviser, a British-Mozambican UK citizen, who once lived in Bin Laden’s home in Saudi Arabia where the ‘Al Qaeda’ leader received various diplomats from countries that included Britain and the United States. A cousin of Bin Laden’s financial adviser served at the British Consulate General in Chicago, from which financial support was given to ‘Al Qaeda operatives in the United States.

‘Al Qaeda’ has apparently extorted large sums of money from the governments of the UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait as ‘protection insurance against ‘Al Qaeda’ terrorist attacks within their nations. One such scheme involved a threat to bomb the foundations of several new high rise skyscrapers on Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai.”

In a September 11, 2005, special report on Kuwait’s role in funding Al Qaeda, WMR disclosed the following: “George H. W. Bush’s Operation Desert Storm made Kuwait safe for an important part of ‘Al Qaeda’s’ financing operations. Documents dating to 1993 and obtained from European intelligence sources by WMR indicate that after U.S. troops ran Saddam Hussein’s forces out of the oil rich emirate, Kuwait became a significant base of operations for Osama bin Laden and his ‘Al Qaeda’ support network. Kuwait was the headquarters for an Islamic ‘charity,’ Lajnat al Dawa al Islamiyah, a group designated by the Treasury Department as a ‘Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT)’ organization. Lajnat gave financial support to Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, ‘Al Qaeda’s’ chief planner of the 911 attacks, which occurred exactly four years ago. Mohammed’s brother ran Lajnat’s operations in Peshawar, Pakistan.”

Our report continued: “Lajnat has been linked to Chicago-based businessman Sulaiman al-Ali, an individual who the FBI said was a central money mover for such terrorist-funding front organizations as the International Islamic Relief Organization, Sana-Bell, Inc., Global Chemical Corporation, the Saar Foundation (which had close links with Karl Rove’s friend and adviser Grover Norquist), BMI, Inc. (an investment bank), the International Institute of Islamic Thought, Safa Trust, P-Tech (a Boston-based software company having active contracts with the FAA and NORAD on 9-11 and which was tied to ‘Al Qaeda’ via links between its director Yaqub Mirza and ‘Al Qaeda’ financier Yasin Kadi), and the Muslim World League. Although these groups primarily funneled Saudi money to terrorist organizations like ‘Al Qaeda’ and Hamas, it was Lajnat that transferred primarily Kuwaiti money from the emirate to ‘Al Qaeda’ operations in Pakistan. According to documents obtained by WMR [see below], Lajnat had the firm support of both the Kuwaiti and Pakistani governments.

The first document [image] is a letter, dated Aug. 3, 1993, from the Pakistani ambassador to Kuwait certifying Lajnat al Dawa al Islamiyah (LDI) as a charitable organization. The second [image] is a letter from the Kuwait embassy in Pakistan stating much the same. A third letter [image] is from the U.S. accounting firm of Ernst & Young giving LDI a clean bill of health from an audit.

In addition to Saudi Arabia, JASTA could also be applied to Kuwait, the nation that President George H. W. Bush “liberated” from Iraq in 1991. Obama is doing all he can to protect the undemocratic Muslim potentates in the GCC from 9/11 victims’ families’ law suits.

Even after 9/11, the Kuwait-based Lajnat al Dawa al Islamiyah, protected by the Al-Sabah royal family, was working with a French relief agency, Secours Populaire Francais [image], to provide assistance to Afghan refugees.

On February 21, 2006, WMR reported on additional ties between Al Qaeda and the government of Dubai, a member of the UAE: “UAE banking insiders have revealed that accounts used to fund the Taliban and Al Qaeda involved members of the Dubai royal family. Banking insiders in Dubai report that in March 2002, U.S. Secretary of Treasury Paul O’Neill visited Dubai and asked for documents on a $109,500 money transfer from Dubai to a joint account held by hijackers Mohammed Atta and Marwan al Shehhi at Sun Trust Bank in Florida . . . The UAE complained about O’Neill’s demands to the Bush administration. O’Neill’s pressure on the UAE and Saudis contributed to Bush firing him as Treasury Secretary in December 2002.”

The freeing of Seif Al-Islam Gaddafi and his departure for Moscow foreshadows the political return of the partisans of the old regime, who have never been more numerous nor better equipped. The Islamists and the pro-Atlantists look askance at this, but they hardly have any choice: Entire regions are in the hands of those who are nostalgic for Jamahirya. And while waiting for the cards to be dealt, everything is on course to make a fortune under the din f some combat planes of a NATO, that no longer even knows where to point its nose.

Saif Gaddafi’s whereabouts since his release earlier this summer is otherwise a mystery. If he is in Moscow, it is a quieter return since his exhibit The Desert is Not Silent in June 2010 (All Art News).

Indeed the WaPo should leave the conspiracy theorizing to professionals like us. The Russians are quite amused…

Fort Russ (translating POLITRUSSIA) – And now Putin’s poisoned Hillary Clinton!

And yet, as a good conspiracy theorist should always ask, are things as they seem? So does the question arise concerning Hillary’s evident seizure on 9/11 – was she faking it? TruthStreamMedia for one broaches the question on Youtube. What of the Twitter account of the videographer, Zdenek Gazda, who was uniquely positioned for shooting not just the stumbling embarkment to the van, but also of the phalanx of VIPs from Hillary to the Donald at the memorial, as well as the supposed ‘pulse taking’ photo. Was he commissioned to shoot the event? And by whom? If so, why was he allowed to follow Hillary to the van when no other press did so, especially under the unusual circumstance of her departure while the ceremony was still underway? Gazda was contacted by BuzzFeed

The man who filmed the video, New Jersey resident Zdenek Gazda, 50, told BuzzFeed News he was at the memorial when he spotted Clinton being led away.

“I take two pictures before she passed me,” said Gazda, who said he moved to the US 24 years ago from what was then Czechoslovakia and is a Clinton supporter. “She looked like everything was fine and everything was good.”

“I just saw the secretary waiting for the van and the van came and she can’t walk inside and she gets helped,” he said. “She lost her shoe and everything.”

There is also the anomaly of the time-stamps of Gazda’s Twitter posts – around 8:30 AM – when Clinton is said to have left the event 90 minutes after arriving at 8:18 AM.

In any event, the payoff for Gazda will be substantial…

RecodeCzech man who shot the Hillary Clinton fainting video will make more than $100,000 from licensing

If the health event was staged, perhaps it was a ploy to lure Trump and his supporters into mocking and insensitive gaffes. Trump for his part is taking the high road (Bloomberg), but certain of his supporters are not (e.g. Infowars panel of Sept. 12 on Youtube) by seeing poetic justice and divine intervention in her collapse on the fifteenth anniversary of the WTC collapse at the site thereof; and moreover, to have occurred on the fifth anniversary of the Benghazi attack, all this makes the incident very auspicious for headline grabbers. Former Clinton bagman Larry Nichols predicted – based on his familiarity with Clintonian strategy and tactics – that all of the questions about Hillary’s illness will be exploited for the sympathy vote, i.e. to make the opposition (the “alt-right media”) look mean spirited in its coverage, and to paint Trump as a heartless bully should he take the gloves off in the debates, beating up on a poor, sickly woman (see Alex Jones Show of Aug. 18 on Youtube).

And what perfect timing on the “pneumonia” diagnosis…

TimeRead Hillary Clinton’s ‘Basket of Deplorables’ Remarks About Donald Trump Supporters

This after saying that Infowars honcho and Trump supporter Alex Jones has a “dark heart” – in misattributing his stance on the question of whether anyone died at Sandy Hook (Jones has been open to guests such as Wolfgang Halbig who say as much, but is noncommittal himself): Hillary Clinton Directly Attacks Alex Jones. With Hillary, however there appears to be a problem with the “basket” of dopaminergic neurons in the region of the brain known as the “black substance,” the substantia nigra, which is dark in the normal brain but less so with the onset of Parkinson disease (MedlinePlus).

There have been a number of incidents throughout Hillary’s campaign which, according to some medical practitioners, look symptomatic of Parkinson’s disease. Dr. Ted Noel anonymously published the PDF, Hillary Clinton’s Probable Diagnosis, before releasing this video…

Another Day in the EmpireClinton Out Cold: Suffers Parkinson’s Related Syncope at 9/11 Ceremony

State of the NationHillary’s Parkinson’s Disease Can No Longer Be Concealed

More about the substantia nigra from the National Parkinson Foundation

Normally, there are brain cells (neurons) in the human brain that produce dopamine. These neurons concentrate in a particular area of the brain, called the substantia nigra. Dopamine is a chemical that relays messages between the substantia nigra and other parts of the brain to control movements of the human body.

If the Hillary campaign finally admits her battle with Parkinson disease, but pleads that this has no impact on her cognitive ability, in pointing for instance to Franklin Roosevelt (who concealed his Polio which left him paralyzed while his mind remained sharp), consider the following from Memory Loss & the brain: Substantia nigra

The substantia nigra is a region of the brain which contains neurons that produce the neurotransmitter dopamine. It is black in appearance, giving rise to the name (“substantia nigra” is Latin for “black substance”.) Neurons in the substantia nigra travel to brain areas which are important for motor control as well as to the frontal lobes, which are important for attention and executive function. Parkinson’s disease is a disorder that involves progressive death of neurons in the substantia nigra, leading to motor and cognitive symptoms.

There are, then, potential problems with “executive function” in the brain of the Democratic candidate to head the Executive branch of the U.S. government. Giving benefit of the doubt, and supposing that she isn’t lying, Hillary’s extensive memory lapses concerning her email server may be symptomatic of problems with dopaminergic projections to her frontal cortex from the substantia nigra…

Complications of dysphagia in Parkinson’s Disease

• Food and saliva which cannot be swallowed may collect in the mouth or back of the throat and cause choking, coughing or drooling.
• Aspiration pneumonia – due to food or liquids being inhaled into the lungs…

Daily MailWhy did Hillary hug a child while suffering from pneumonia? Candidate embraced young girl despite having a contagious illness

The answer may be that Parkinson associated aspiration pneumonia is not contagious. From Summit Medical Group:

Aspiration pneumonia, also called anaerobic pneumonia, is an infection of the lungs caused by a type of bacteria called anaerobic bacteria. The infection is usually not contagious.

It can however be fatal…

China seals the cipher… Snowden signals NSA 9/11… Where are İncirlik’s nukes?… much, much more…

…among headlines of interest, mid to late August 2016…

It is an experiment that had been originally proposed in 2008 for the International Space Station (Rupert Ursin et al in arXiv.org), to vastly extend the range of quantum key distribution (QKD), which DARPA had advanced in 2003 (Chip Elliot et al in arXiv.org), and which had its first practical use in the 2007 Swiss elections (Optics.org). But it is China that has achieved this crucial breakthrough in the history of communications via satellite…

RTHack-proof? China launches world’s 1st quantum communications satellite

Popular ScienceChina’s Quantum Satellite Could Change Cryptography Forever

Could this USAF effort to ‘improve radio communications’ – by essentially launching HAARP into the ionosphere itself – have other applications? – such as nixing the entanglements of QKDs?..

Perched much higher, in geosynchronous orbit…

ReutersChina eyes artificial intelligence for new cruise missiles

The Chinese breakthrough in QKD will have wide ranging implications, not only for the enciphering of communications between humans, but of that between devices. Would this explain the immediacy of the DOD recommendation on AI?…

Defense OneDOD Science Board Recommends “Immediate Action” to Counter Enemy AI

“…most of the U.S. effort focused on developing offensive cyber capabilities without commensurate attention to hardening U.S. systems against attacks from others. Unfortunately, in both domains, that neglect has resulted in DoD spending large sums of money today to ‘patch’ systems against potential attacks.”

The above quotation however suggests the other big story of the month in the cryptography/hacking world – one perhaps prompted by Ed Snowden’s mystery tweet…

We give you some Equation Group files free, you see. This is good proof no? You enjoy!!! You break many things. You find many intrusions. You write many words. But not all, we are auction the best files.”

Edward Snowden (Twitter)The hack of an NSA malware staging server is not unprecedented, but the publication of the take is. Here’s what you need to know: (1/x)

TechdirtEd Snowden Explains Why Hackers Published NSA’s Hacking Tools

Why did they do it? No one knows, but I suspect this is more diplomacy than intelligence, related to the escalation around the DNC hack. Circumstantial evidence and conventional wisdom indicates Russian responsibility. Here’s why that is significant: This leak is likely a warning that someone can prove US responsibility for any attacks that originated from this malware server. That could have significant foreign policy consequences. Particularly if any of those operations targeted US allies. Particularly if any of those operations targeted elections. Accordingly, this may be an effort to influence the calculus of decision-makers wondering how sharply to respond to the DNC hacks…

Christian Science Monitor (Aug. 3) – Homeland Security chief weighs plan to protect voting from hackers

What might Snowden be referring to in “Particularly if any of those operations targeted US allies. Particularly if any of those operations targeted elections.”?

Wayne Madsen ReportAugust 24-25, 2016 — NSA formulating American foreign policy in secret

The recent disclosures of classified National Security Agency documents liberated from NSA databases by whistleblower Edward Snowden reveal that the signals intelligence agency has been heavily involved in formulating American foreign policy. Information contained in a series of internal NSA newsletters called “SID Today,” SID meaning the Signals Intelligence Directorate, describe a foreign policy bureaucracy, rivaling that of the State Department and Pentagon, existing within the intelligence agency. The degree to which NSA now influences U.S. foreign policy represents a sea change in the role of an agency originally charged with eavesdropping on foreign diplomatic and military traffic and protecting U.S. government communications from surveillance.

Many of the detailed foreign policy decisions by NSA are carried out by SINIOS, or SIGINT National Intelligence Officers, assigned particular areas of responsibility…

A July 17, 2003, SID Today item dealt with ways to eliminate Liberian President Charles Taylor’s government in Liberia. The SINIO for Sub-Saharan Africa prepared a top secret report on Taylor and elimination options, titled “Charles Taylor — West African Pariah; Down But Is He Out?”

In October 2003, the SINIO for Global and Multilateral Issues proposed ways to deal with a recalcitrant Germany and France, which opposed a UN Security Council imprimatur on an Iraq reconstruction donors’ conference in Madrid. Other disclosed NSA classified documents described how NSA authorized “surge” surveillance of the UN missions of members of the Security Council, including those of Germany and France. The SINIO Council called such opponents of U.S. policy in Iraq, the “Coalition of the Unwilling” in an August 6, 2003 SID Today…

Consider the electoral fate of the parties then in power among the “Coalition of the Unwilling,” particularly in France and Germany, where Jacques Chirac and Gerhard Schröder were succeeded by the more interventionist amenable Sarkozy and Merkel.  One might consider for instance the election set-back Schröder faced in the lead up to the U.S. invasion of Iraq: N.Y.Times Feb. 4, 2003.

These Allies will ensure that all components of NATO’s nuclear deterrent remain safe, secure, and effective,” a NATO spokesperson wrote to EurActiv.

Hacked Soros Memo: $650,000 to Black Lives Matter

While these suggest the Soros organization was a relative late-comer to the movement, one document reveals an interest to “shape” its direction…

The highest profile events, the #BlackLivesMatter convening in Cleveland and the #Law4BlackLives gathering in New York, yielded a promising critique of efforts to date and a potential blueprint for strengthening the movement going forward.

That support calls into question how we might most appropriately support such efforts; specifically whether we should seek to shape the movement as opposed to facilitate its direct action. How do we confront the reality that such movements frequently flail as they attempt to grow and confront the challenges of institutionalizing themselves sufficiently to extend their reach? To what extent do we believe that we should play a role in helping such movement leaders connect with others that might help deepen policy recommendations or connections to sympathetic, but silent, inside actors? How can we help link such movements to existing grantees and other key actors that provide mutual strengthening?

Not all of the BLM leaders however are willing to follow the Soros prescriptions; for instance, Jeff Mixon of the Cleveland chapter…

Washington Times (July 18) – Black Lives Matter leader boycotts Cleveland protest, says liberal activists hijacking movement

One way in which we have long suspected that Soros linked organizations (like Media Matters) to be shaping the public revolt against the excesses of militarized police forces, is evident in the media focus upon those cases which are A. white on black killings, and B. are ambiguous in the circumstances of the case (e.g. Michael Brown’s “hands up don’t shoot” turned out to be – by eyewitness testimony – hands forward while charging the officer after attempting to seize his weapon). The result of this focus, in its exploitation of America’s festering racial resentments, is to divert public outrage away from police state excesses in general by getting politicized sides fighting against each other over the disputed “facts” of the case at hand. There are many cases where the facts indicating police racism and use of excessive force are unambiguous, and yet these do not become the rallying cry around which people of many stripes could unite. The Sandra Bland death while in custody (dubiously ruled suicide) was far more worthy of widespread protest; but the most recent uprising in Milwaukee is emblematic of the misdirection, even as it doesn’t meet condition A. – both the officer and the armed suspect were black…

BMZ Group update: as of 31 August, 13:52 UTC, the Poet Qabil has arrived in the Indian port of Hazira, after its status had been listed: ARMED TEAM ON BOARD, with its AIS “ping” of 08-20 09:34, located in the Red Sea midway between Jeddah and Port Sudan (20.80078°N/ 38.21693°E), according to MarineTraffic.com. VesselFinder.com listed the same status with the location update on Aug 21, 2016 18:51 at 16.77124 N/40.69882 E, approaching the Gulf of Aden. The armed team was likely that of a private security company having boarded in the Red Sea to defend against a perceived threat of attack. See the International Maritime Organization document concerning this designation. The Poet Qabil was on the last leg of a lengthy journey from the Latvian port of Riga to the originally listed Indian port of Kandla.

We have been continuing to sporadically monitor the fleet of ships in which Bilal Erdoğan (the son of the Turkish president) is an investor. (See previous update of April 23.) Our interest had been peaked with reports that the fleet had been transporting oil originating from ISIS-held areas to European ports. We had tracked several of these suspect shipments from the Turkish port of Mersin. Notably, since the drastic reduction of ISIS oil production (OilPrice.com), none of the ships in the BMZ group have stopped in Mersin, where the last port of call was that of the Mecid Aslanov on April 4.

China ( a BRICS nation) was host in ’08, and Brazil is host this year. Brazil is the B in BRICS. With the recent CIA encouraged overthrow of Dilma Roussef and replacement by U.S. proxy Michel Temer (see our edition of May 17), the status of the B is in question. With warming relations between Putin and Erdogan, however, could the B be replaced by a T? TRICS is perhaps not the most desirable acronym.

Panic Mode: Khizr Khan Deletes Law Firm Website that Specialized in Muslim Immigration

Zero HedgeWhy Did Khizr Khan Delete His Law Firm’s Website?

Did he assist 9/11 hijackers with their visas?…

Wayne Madsen ReportAugust 1-2, 2016 — What the media isn’t reporting about Khizr Khan

Khizr Khan, the Muslim immigrant lawyer from Pakistan who arrived in America by way of Dubai and pulled at the heart strings of viewers of the Democratic National Convention by regaling the audience with the story of the loss of his son, Army Captain Humayun Khan, in Iraq, told his son’s story but skipped over his own.

Khizr Khan entered the United States in 1980 from Dubai to attend Harvard Law School. That year saw the Central Intelligence Agency ramp up its operations in Pakistan in support of the Afghan mujaheddin against the Soviets. The Pakistan operation was shepherded by national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, currently an outspoken opponent of Donald Trump and a bitter foe of Russia..

Khizr Khan practices law in New York and is a member of the New York Bar. Khan’s Manhattan law office is next door to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, which also happens to house the residence of the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power. Power’s husband is Cass Sunstein, President Obama’s former information czar who excels in the art of disinformation, propaganda, and cognitive dissonance. But more interesting is the fact that Khan and his wife are residents of Charlottesville, Virginia, a home to a number of foreign Muslims, many of whom are students at the University of Virginia who wish to change their student visa status to permanent residency, or “green card” status. Charlottesville is a so-called “sanctuary city” that welcomes those who either enter the United States illegally or overstay their limited residency visas.

Khan’s wife, Ghazala, is a pediatrician in Virginia Beach, which is a three-hour drive from Charlottesville. The Khans are not attracted to Charlottesville because of a convenient distance to their places of work. So why do they reside in the university town? When their son died in Iraq in 2004, the Khans lived in Bristow, Virginia, a far suburb of Washington, DC in Prince William County. The Khans had also once lived in Silver Spring, Maryland.

The official notification of Khan’s death stated:

“Captain Humayun S. M. Khan, 27, of Bristow, Virginia, died June 8, 2004, in Baquabah, Iraq, after a vehicle packed with an improvised explosive device drove into the gate of his compound while he was inspecting soldiers on guard duty.  Khan was assigned to Headquarters, Headquarters Company, 201st Forward Support Battalion, 1st Infantry Division, Vilseck, Germany.”

Khan was actually an Army intelligence officer, fluent in Arabic, who worked with Iraqi civilians in a program called the United States-Iraq Sponsorship Program, which was actually an operation designed to recruit Iraqis to work as police and in other “capacities” for the Coalition Provisional Authority, the U.S. occupation government of Iraq. Khan’s home base of Vilseck is a center for U.S. intelligence operations involving units of the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command. When Khan was killed, oversight of Iraq “transition” programs, such as the U.S.-Iraq Sponsorship Program, had just come under the control of General David Petraeus, the first commander of the Multi-National Security Transition Command – Iraq.

Members of the Pakistani embassy, including deputy chief of mission (DCM) Mohammad Sadiq, attended Captain Khan’s burial at Arlington National Cemetery. The DCM of large embassies are almost always the embassy intelligence chief of station. In the case of Sadiq, this would be the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). In 2008, Sadiq, who paid his respects to Captain Khan at Arlington, was defending ISI as the Pakistan Foreign Ministry’s chief spokesman. India accused the ISI of bombing its embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan. The bombing killed four people, including two Indian diplomats…

Pakistan was not a member of the U.S. coalition in Iraq, which begs the question of why the Pakistani embassy’s ISI chief attended Captain Humayun Khan’s funeral at Arlington? Was Khan working, through his Saudi- and Pakistani-connected father with the ISI? If so, was the contact “sanctioned” by the CIA? If not, was Humayun Khan freelancing and feeding information from Iraq to the ISI, which then passed it to their close allies in the Saudi General Intelligence Department?

Khizr Khan claims he is a “legal consultant” in Charlottesville, although he is not a member of the Virginia Bar. Given the nature of Charlotteville’s status as a sanctuary city, Khan’s legal background and his work with the Muslim community in Virginia, it is likely that Khan offers help to Muslims who have overstayed their student visas in the university and sanctuary city to obtain permanent residence. It should be recalled that seven of the 9/11 hijackers obtained Virginia driver’s licenses, three of which were used as official identification to check in for flights on September 11, 2001. Perhaps if Khizr Khan had not been so willing to help dodgy Muslim “students” overstay their visas and seek workarounds to the law, Virginia might have been able to prevent the hijackers fraudulently obtain driver’s licenses. And had there been no 9/11, there certainly would have been no U.S. invasion of Iraq and Humayun Khan would have realized his dream of attending the University of Virginia law school and becoming a military lawyer. In making it easy for Saudis, Emiratis, and others to game the U.S. immigration system, Khizr Khan shares in some of the responsibility for his son’s death…

Wayne Madsen ReportJuly 16-18, 2016 — SPECIAL REPORT. Turkish sources: Erdogan behind “false flag” coup

WMR has been informed by Turkish and foreign intelligence sources inside Turkey that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan staged the July 15 military coup in order to determine what sections of the military would support it. Erdogan, who was never in any real danger of being overthrown by the small group of mid- and lower-ranking military officers who rallied to support the coup, will use the incident as a way to flush out supporters of exiled Turkish charismatic Islamic leader Fethulleh Gulen.

Turkish sources report that the coup was limited by Erdogan’s design from the very start. Although the coup began as a classic military overthrow of a civilian government, with strategic points — the two cross-Bosporus bridges, the Istanbul international airport, the state broadcast network TRT, and the General Staff headquarters in Ankara — all being taken by the coup leaders, it was doomed to failure.

It is still a mystery how the coup leaders, who limited their actions to seizing a few but not all strategic centers, could shut down all social media in Turkey, including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. In fact, after Erdogan left his holiday hotel in Marmaris on the Aegean Sea, his plane was reportedly refused landing at Istanbul’s Ataturk International Airport, which was in rebel hands. Erdogan’s propaganda operation then began to put out false information that Erdogan, who was in the air on his presidential plane, was seeking asylum in Germany. WMR’s sources report that Erdogan’s plane never strayed far from Turkish airspace. Although major social media was shut down, Erdogan appeared on FaceTime from his iPhone on CNN Turk, which had not yet been seized by the rebel military forces.

If the coup had been a serious attempt, FaceTime would have been cut off and CNN Turk would have been seized at the same time that TRT was taken over. Also, the state-run Anadolu news agency continued to issue statements from Prime Minister Binali Yildirim claiming that the coup had been put down just after it started. An actual coup would have seen the news agency also shut down…

Our sources in Turkey claim that the coup attempt was a false flag operation for a number of reasons:

  • The coup attempt started out as a textbook overthrow but rapidly fell apart. Many in Turkey believe that if such a coup was a serious operation, it would not have dissipated so rapidly.
  • After first claiming they had total control of Turkey, the coup leaders gave up with only token resistance.
  • By closing all lanes on the cross-Bosporus bridges and not keeping one lane open so people could get home from work, the population grew angry at the “coup” and its “leaders.”
  • Erdogan’s plane landed without incident. In an actual coup, his plane would have been surrounded by the military and he would have been placed under arrest. Or, if the presidential plane insisted on landing against the military’s orders, it could have been shot down.
  • Erdogan was met at the airport by a crowd waving brand new Turkish flags, the folds still visible. This is always a sign of George Soros’s involvement in themed revolutions, with protesters always waving factory-fresh flags. Some Erdogan supporters were also seen waving brand new flags representing the Muslim separatist group of East Turkestan in western China, a group supported by Soros. Soros’s Open Society Institute operates freely in Istanbul and Soros is on friendly terms with Erdogan.
  • Erdogan’s government ordered the imams to begin using the minarets to urge people into the streets. In an actual military coup, the minaret speaker systems would have been ordered to remain silent or power would have been cut off to the mosques. Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) supporters were marching in the streets hand-in-hand with imams and other Muslim officials shouting “Allahu Akbar.”
  • The Pentagon claims it was surprised by the coup. However, U.S. military officers are attached as NATO liaison officers to the Turkish Defense Ministry and Turkish officers work inside the Pentagon. It is doubtful that such a coup could have been planned by a small group of Turkish officers without the Turkish General Staff and U.S. liaison officers knowing about it.
  • Erdogan’s government, on the morning after the coup attempt, ordered the sacking of 2,745 judges.

There were also three military attacks on the Turkish parliament in Ankara. It is very possible that these were carried out by pro-Erdogan military units. Erdogan has been trying to force through a new Constitution for Turkey that would confer even more powers on the president. Erdogan has also seized control of Gulen-owned media, including the newspaper Zaman and he recently suggested that Syrian refugees in Turkey, including a number of jihadists, be granted Turkish citizenship. These moves were met with hostility by Turkey’s opposition parties in parliament. By ordering an attack on parliament, Erdogan was sending a not-so-subtle message to the opposition. In the wake of the coup, Erdogan has silenced the political opposition while having messages of support from U.S. president Barack Obama, German chancellor Angela Merkel, British prime minister Theresa May, and EU President Donald Tusk, among others…

Wayne Madsen ReportJuly 13-14, 2016 — “Big Mother” takes over helm of UK

The “Queen of Surveillance,” UK Home Secretary Theresa May, has assumed the office of Prime Minister. May is a longtime champion of every form of intrusive surveillance that ever came before her desk at the Home Office. For Britain, what is already the world’s leading high-tech surveillance state will now move closer to George Orwell’s dystopian futuristic Britain, a country he dubbed “Airstrip One.” …

May’s pet project at the Home Office has been the passage of the Data Retention and Investigatory Powers (DRIP) Act, legislation that saw its second reading on the way to final passage in the House of Lords. However, Liberal Democratic lords have demanded changes to the legislation and have slowed its final passage.

DRIP will take Britain from being a highly-intrusive nation to one of almost total electronic surveillance…

Although May was a supporter of the remain in the EU campaign, she now says she will oversee Britain’s extrication from the organization. However, many in Britain see May’s sudden support for Brexit as her golden opportunity to leave the jurisdiction of the European Court of Human Rights, therefore removing a major stumbling block on implementation of her surveillance law.

In stateside election news, we headlined the inevitable in our previous installment, the day before it was made official. Here is how it played out from July the 5th…

Though not mentioned in the lawsuit, at least one scientific study of the effects of the Corexit, a heavily used dispersant during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, showed that the dispersant may cause serious harm on a microbial level, hindering the oil bioremediation process.
     According to a March 2011 studyby [sic] the Inter-Research Science Center, scientists studied the presence of Corexit in oil from the Deepwater Horizon explosion along the Louisiana coast and found that Corexit was toxic to two crucial, naturally occurring bacteria that aid the bioremediation process of breaking down oil so it becomes nontoxic to other life.
     The study found that Corexit was nontoxic to a third bacteria prevalent in the Gulf of Mexico, which does not contribute to breaking down oil but is highly toxic to marine life, especially to marine and land mammals, including humans. This is the bacteria Vibrio vulnificus. Vibrio vulnificus has been found in high concentrations in tar balls along the Gulf Coast.

Wayne Madsen ReportJune 29-30, 2016 — SPECIAL REPORT. The EU: a powerhouse and protection mechanism for a pedophile hierarchy

It is entirely fitting that the European Central Bank (ECB) chief Mario Draghi has decided to convene the annual meeting of ECB bankers in the Portuguese city of Sintra. Draghi and his fellow bankers are trying to decide how to mitigate the effects of the Brexit vote by Britain to leave the European Union. Sintra, which is outside of Lisbon, is a three hour drive from Praia da Luz, Portugal. And it is in the coastal resort town of Praia de Luz where the real story behind the British, Portuguese, French, Danish, Dutch and other EU nationalities’ rejection of the evil artifice of the EU infrastructure begins.

The European Union and its goal of a borderless Europe, the euro common currency, a common police force – EUROPOL – benefits only one major and influential group: the pedophile network that dominates the EU and individual member states like the United Kingdom, Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Sweden, and others. The Schengen system, which drops intra-European border controls, permits pedophiles, even those with prior criminal records, to travel unchallenged throughout the Schengen group of countries. Schengen also permits pedophiles to transport kidnapped minors across national boundaries. The euro permits the pedophile networks to engage in money laundering with ease. The EU enables investors to build and maintain “family friendly” resort complexes in countries like Portugal, Spain, and France. These resorts actually cater to the whims of pedophiles. The EU also supports the political and social “rights” of various practitioners of sexual deviancy, which provides legal cover for pedophiles to establish various NGOs across Europe to push their political agenda. Two such outfits are the UK’s Pedophile Information Exchange (PIE) and its ally, the National Council for Civil Liberties, which advocate for the decriminalization of sex between adults and children as young as ten years of age. In other words, the EU and member states like the UK have enabled a virtual continental-wide paradise for pedophiles…

May 3, 2007 was the day that 3-year old Madeleine McCann disappeared from her family’s holiday rental apartment on the southern coast of Portugal in the Algarve region. The disappearance of the little girl from Apartment 5A of the Ocean Club Resort, managed by Mark Warner, Ltd., became an immediate media sensation in Britain and throughout Europe. But, just as the news about Madeleine’s disappearance broke, top officials of Number 10 Downing Street, the residence of then-British Prime Minister Tony Blair, began to conduct a damage control campaign. Why would the staff of a British Prime Minister become involved in media spin about a missing little girl on holiday with her parents and siblings in Portugal? Of course, the story pulled at the heart strings of any normal person but the reaction of Blair and his advisers was suspect, to say the least.

Sigmund Freud and his deviant pedophile heir

Now comes news that the late Liberal MP, broadcaster, and humorist Sir Clement Freud, the grandson of psychopathology sex expert Dr. Sigmund Freud, was known to be a pedophile. Of greater interest is that fact that Freud owned a villa in Praia da Luz, very close to the Ocean Club Resort where Madeleine turned up missing. It has also been reported that Freud was acquainted with the McCanns and their three children, including Madeleine. Freud died in 2009, some two years after Madeleine was reported missing. The presence of several known and suspected pedophiles living and holidaying in and around Praia da Luz, including a number of people questioned by the Portuguese police, has a number of missing children investigators convinced that the resort town is a major center of pedophile activity in Europe.

Within the first few weeks of the investigation by British and Portuguese police of little Madeleine’s disappearance, Number 10 dispatched Clarence Mitchell, a former BBC television news reporter/anchor and the head of Blair’s Central Office of Information’s (COI) Media Monitoring Unit to Portugal to act as the McCann’s official spokesman. Mitchell’s media watchdog job had been to ensure that the media only published and broadcast the official disinformation issued by Blair and other ministers in his government on a wide range of topics. Mitchell was sent off to Portugal to put forth only that information about Madeleine’s disappearance that comported with Number 10’s wishes.

Mitchell replaced the first spin doctor dispatched to Portugal. She was Sheree Dodd, a former Daily Mirror journalist and Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesman who was a spokesperson for Blair. It is suspected that Dodd began questioning the “facts” being spun about Madeleine’s disappearance and began leaking such doubts anonymously to the press. Dodd lasted only a few days in the job before being replaced by Mitchell.

Blair and Mitchell must have been fully aware that the Portuguese police investigation, and that of the British police, would soon uncover links to the immense pedophilia that dominates the power structures of the EU in Brussels and Strasbourg, as well as the national governments of Britain, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, and other EU member states. Of greater interest is the fact that a few months after Madeleine’s disappearance, Mitchell contracted with a public relations firm owned by Matthew Freud to help handle media operations on the McCann case. Freud also happens to be the son of Praia da Luz resident and suspected pedophile Sir Clement Freud…

Muzzling the media: a pedophile specialty

The Mitchell media machine and its London barristers managed to intimidate several independent media outlets that were vigorously pursuing the truth about Madeleine’s disappearance. These included the Portuguese newspaper Tal & Qual, which was sued and soon folded its operations. Some of the same legal threats against the media reporting the truth about the McCann case were also employed against journalists investigating the pedophile scandal at the Haute de Garenne,a former children’s orphanage on the isle of Jersey, a self-governing British island between France and England. In 2008, small human remains were found on the grounds of the orphanage, which had been a favorite place for BBC pedophile Jimmy Saville to visit. Jersey’s former health minister Stuart Syvret has been branded a “conspiracy nutter” by the Jersey government and its small media operations.

In 2011, American journalist American journalist Leah McGrath Goodman, who investigated the orphanage, was detained at Heathrow airport and banned from re-entering the UK. Although U.S. citizens can be prevented from entering Jersey by being barred from the UK, EU citizens wanting to visit either Jersey or Guernsey and its dependencies, can do so freely from either France or the UK. The Brexit will make this a much more difficult process from the European mainland. Jersey is another case where the EU benefits pedophilia more than it does trade and tourism.

The capital of the EU, Brussels, was ground zero for one of the worst pedophile cases in modern European history, the Dutroux Affair. From 1995 to 1996, Dutroux was convicted of raping and torturing six girls, ages 8 to 19, four of whom he murdered. In 1992, Dutroux was released from prison after having been convicted of raping five young girls. Dutroux received an early release on the order of Belgian Justice Minister Melchior Wathelet. At his strangely-delayed 2004 trial, Dutroux claimed that he was part of a European-wide pedophile ring that included top officials of the police force and government. The rumors of the cover-up of the Dutroux Affair led into the Belgian Royal Palace. On July 21, 2013, King Albert II, who had been rumored to have been involved in the Dutroux cover-up, surprised Belgium by announcing his abdication for “health reasons.” A member of the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, the same ruling family as that of the UK, Albert remains alive as of this day…

DEBKAfileBangladesh: ISIS pays Italy back for role in Libya

WMRJune 20-21, 2016 — Is the White House using Indonesia to stir up tensions with China? – with extended excerpts:

The third armed clash between Indonesian maritime patrol craft and a Chinese fishing vessel has been reported in the extreme southern part of the South China Sea. Although China has had maritime territorial disputes with other countries in the region, particularly the Philippines and Vietnam, Sino-Indonesian relations have been spared from the tensions elsewhere in the region, particularly around hotly-contested islands in the Paracel and Spratly groups. However, that has now changed with yet another clash between the Indonesian Navy and Chinese fishing boats in the Natuna Islands area. Although the Chinese “Nine-Dash Line” map does not include Indonesia’s Natuna islands, the territory claimed by China does reach into what Indonesia claims as its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). China says the waters are in China’s traditional fishing area. 

In March, a Chinese Coast Guard vessel tried to prevent the Indonesian Navy from towing away a Chinese fishing boat. In May, the Indonesian Navy opened fire on a Chinese fishing boat as it was fleeing the area. The boat was captured and its crew continues to be detained in Ranai, the capital of the Natuna islands. On June 17, the Indonesian Navy opened fire on another Chinese fishing boat, injuring one crewman.

The recent open warfare between Indonesia and China is music to the ears of those in the Obama White House and Pentagon who are itching for a dual military conflict between the United States on one side and China and Russia on the other.

In 2015, China officially recognized Indonesia’s sovereignty over the Natuna islands. More significantly, China also recognized Indonesia’s EEZ right, which also happen to extend into China’s “Nine-Dash Line” boundary. However, there are now full-blown naval clashes between China and Indonesian vessels on the high seas. Who is responsible for this sudden breakdown in relations between Beijing and Jakarta?

The answer lies in an Oval Office occupied by a president with deep familial roots in Indonesia and someone whose past few trips to Asia have been designed to ratchet up tensions with China. Some outside influence has prompted Indonesian president Joko “Jokowi” Widodo to lay down the gauntlet to China. President Obama is the likely behind-the-scenes villain since he is someone who has shown through his military “pivot to Asia” that he will take advantage of any potential hot spot in Asia to rattle American sabers against China. Since announcing his pivot to Asia in 2011, Obama has undertaken a series of provocative moves against China. These have included:

– Visiting Vietnam and announcing that the U.S. would sell weapons to the country that continues to be plagued by un-exploded U.S. ordnance, including land mines, from the Vietnam War.
– Ordering the return of U.S. troops and bases to the Philippines, including the reactivation of the U.S. Navy presence in Subic Bay.
– Negotiating with Vietnam the return of the U.S. Navy to Cam Ranh Bay, a major U.S. base during the Vietnam War.
– Basing U.S. P-8 Poseidon maritime surveillance aircraft and four littoral combat ships in Singapore.
– Basing U.S. Marines and U.S. air assets in Darwin, Australia.
-Quietly pressuring Japan to eliminate the constitutional clause, inserted at the insistence of General Douglas MacArthur, prohibiting Japan from maintaining an offensive military structure.
– Increasing the number of joint naval exercises with South Korea.
– Inviting the Indian Navy, for the first time, to take part in naval exercises with the U.S. and Japanese navies in waters off of the Senkaku (Diaoyu) Islands, claimed by Japan and China, in the East China Sea. The annual U.S.-Indian Malabar exercise was moved from Indian waters to those close to China for the sole purpose of ratcheting up tensions with China.
– Assisting the Philippines in creating a National Coast Watch Center in Manila.
– Authorizing a $1,83 billion arms deal with Taiwan that includes missiles and naval frigates.
– Establising a U.S. Marine Corps presence in the Malaysian state of Sabah on Borneo.
– Deploying Global Hawk and Triton unmanned aerial vehicles to Andersen Air Force Base in Guam.
– Permanently linking the Brunei military with a U.S. state Army National Guard unit for joint training and operations.
– Increasing the number of Chinese-speaking agents at the CIA station co-located with the U.S. Consulate General in Hong Kong.
– Detailing a greater number of naval vessels from the U.S. Navy’s Third Fleet in San Diego to East Asian waters….

There has recently been a debate in Indonesia about opening up an investigation of the 1965 coup that toppled President Sukarno and resulted in a genocide against actual and perceived members of the Indonesian Communist Party (PKI) and ethnic Chinese Indonesian citizens. As many as one million may have been killed as a result of the Central Intelligence Agency-backed coup and the resulting massacre of leftists and Chinese. The General Suharto regime that took power had two willing accomplices. One was Lieutenant Colonel Lolo Soetoro of the Indonesian Army, the stepfather of Obama, who enrolled his young stepson in a state school after declaring him an Indonesian citizen. The other accomplice to genocide was Ann Dunham Soetoro, Obama’s mother whose covert CIA work for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) resulted in her identifying all the leftists in central Javanese villages and the turning over lists of Indonesian “Reds” to her husband who passed them to Suharto’s execution teams.

Although many Indonesians favor an investigation of the 1965 coup, which could result in the roles of Obama’s stepfather and mother being revealed, the secrets of the Obama family and the coup and the systematic genocide of the Communists and ethnic Chinese may remain as just that, secret. Protests against any investigation of the coup by Saudi-influenced Islamists in Indonesia have broken out in Indonesia. The ringleaders of the protests are senior officers of the Indonesian military and, more importantly, the Islam Defenders Front (FPI) and the Islamic People’s Forum (FUI), both groups financed by Wahhabist financiers based in Saudi Arabia. Just as right-wing Muslims assisted Suharto, Lolo Soetoro, Ann Dunham Soetoro, and the CIA in helping to stamp out the PKI and target the ethnic Chinese, they have come to the assistance of the CIA, now run by pro-Wahhabist John Brennan, in opposing an investigation of the events of 1965 and succeeding years…

WMR has been informed that U.S. special operations teams have deployed with Indonesian naval forces in patrolling the waters of the South China Sea and assisting in the interdiction of Chinese fishing vessels and Coast Guard patrol boats. This comes on the heels of first-ever joint U.S. and Indonesian submarine exercises in Indonesia waters. For many years, CIA personnel have worked with Indonesian fishermen, some who supplement their incomes by also engaging in piracy, in interdicting and boarding vessels of interest transiting the seas around the Natuna islands. More than one North Korean-flagged, as well as “flag of convenience” merchant ships have been boarded by joint teams of Indonesian fishermen/pirates and U.S. special operations personnel. The U.S. teams locate and seize military items from North Korea, including missiles and their components, and nuclear components heading to North Korea, while the moonlighting Indonesian fishermen are welcome to take all the Chinese-made televisions, laptop computers, and other consumer goods they can haul away. When WMR’s editor first came across this U.S.-Indonesian operation in the 1990s, during the Clinton administration, the CIA asked that the details not be published. This editor agreed at the time but now it is obvious that the U.S. dalliance with piracy on the open seas is no longer confined to interdicting North Korean materials for North Korea’s nuclear program but is aimed at starting a war with China.

With the same type of teams now working together to target Chinese fishing boats, the Obama administration has crossed a dangerous line. The framers of the U.S. Constitution, who were emphatic about requiring a U.S. president to be “natural born,” intended to bar from office foreign-born individuals whose biases and connections to foreign countries could result in a dual-loyalty problem. Obama’s Indonesian connections have not only helped to bring Indonesia on to America’s side in a looming conflict with China but have also disrupted Indonesia’s desire to pursue the whole truth about the coup of 1965.

[John] Ashe was due in court Monday with his Chinese businessman co-defendant Ng Lap Seng, who is charged with smuggling $4.5 million into the US since 2013 and lying that it was to buy art and casino chips.

Ng was identified in a 1998 Senate report as the source of hundreds of thousands of dollars illegally funneled through an Arkansas restaurant owner, Charlie Trie, to the Democratic National Committee during the Clinton administration…

“During the trial, the prosecutors would have linked Ashe to the Clinton bagman Ng. It would have been very embarrassing. His death was conveniently timed.”

These are probably not the Clintons’ doing, but who knows?…

Get Off the BSFailed Trump Assassin Michael Sandford Trained With Omar Mateen

APFuller picture emerges of man arrested at Trump rally

The AP picture is in fact quite vacuous, skirting over the question of how Sandford was able to fund his “mission”…

WMRJune 21-22, 2016 — Is 2016 the year of the assassin?

…Sandford, who lived with his mother in Dorking in Sussex, England, is reported to be autistic and having an obsession with robots featured in the television show “Robot Wars.” The UK Mirror reported that Sandford had no idea how to operate the robots he ordered.

Sandford’s robot fascination is reminiscent of John Warnock Hinckley, Jr.’s infatuation with actress Jodie Foster. Hinckley wanted to impress the actress by killing President Ronald Reagan. Sandford reportedly spent thousands of dollars on robots sold by the TV show starting at the age of 15. However, Sandford’s sources of income have not been explained. He was in the United States illegally, having overstayed his tourist visa. He was said to be homeless and living in his car.

Sandford drove from Los Angeles to Las Vegas to assassinate trump at the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino theater. Sandford had tickets for Trump’s appearance in Las Vegas and a later campaign stop in Phoenix, where he intended to try to shoot Trump if he was not able to make an attempt in Las Vegas. Sandford, a white teen from an English-speaking country, did not meet the profile of a Trump assassin. Trump’s rhetoric against Muslims and Mexicans would have envisaged a different type of assassin for Secret Service and FBI profilers. Law enforcement did not explain where Sandford obtained the funds to travel to the United States from Britain and pay for the car and gasoline used to stalk Trump. Sandford is said to have visited a Las Vegas firing range the day before he tried to kill Trump. Sandford’s firing of a 9 millimeter Glock pistol was reportedly the first time he ever fired a weapon.

Neither did law enforcement reveal how Sandford managed to fund his entire stay of 18 months in the United States, a visit that started in Hoboken, New Jersey and ultimately ended up in the Ontario-San Bernardino area of southern California. Nor was there any explanations about where Sandford obtained the money to buy a 2007 BMW 328i, which he used to drive cross-country. Some British news reports suggest that Sandford tried to sell all of his robots for £1500. However, that would not be nearly enough for an airline ticket, a BMW, gasoline, and food to travel across the United States in an 18 month-long odyssey to carry out a plot to assassinate Trump. When Sandford was arrested, law enforcement discovered his British driver’s license. But no mention was made of his British passport that would have been a requirement to enter the United States.

Hoboken police have not yet determined where Sandford lived in the city just across the Hudson River from Manhattan. Nor have the police figured out what Sandford was doing in Hoboken in the first place.

Federal prosecutors in Las Vegas and British law enforcement officials confirmed that Sandford suffered from “mental issues” with British authorities claiming Sandford had an obsessive compulsive disorder and had been treated at an English hospital. If so, how did Sandford escape being included on the U.S. no-fly list as a potential threat to a U.S.-bound airplane and its passengers and crew?

Sandford’s mental problems and fascination for robots leads to some uncomfortable questions. Was Sandford’s robot fixation a result of his own programming to be an assassin. The Central Intelligence Agency’s MK-ULTRA program included the programming of assassins whose actions would be triggered by suggestive phrases, people, or things. For Hinckley, it was Jodie Foster. For Mark David Chapman, it was John Lennon, who he eventually killed. For Bremer, Chapman, and others, it was also J.D. Salinger’s novel “Catcher in the Rye.” For Sandford, was the trigger the robots in “Robot Wars?”…

Forget “climate change,” the climate has been changing for over four billion years, and yet life learns to roll with it and evolve to ever greater complexity. Not to dismiss the other manifold kinds of environmental assaults upon the biosphere, but outside of a full-blown nuclear war, that which constitutes the greatest threat to life on Earth is the global nuclear power industry, with 503 potential time bombs (World Nuclear), and an ever burgeoning yield of nuclear waste (Greenpeace). The latest addition has had a less than auspicious beginning…
