Wayne Madsen Report – October 12-13, 2016 — U.S. about to lose another key Asian ally
The United States, stung by the rapid deterioration in relations with its longtime ally, the Philippines, now stands on the precipice of losing another strategic ally in Asia. Reports that the much-revered king of Thailand, Bhumibol Adulyadej, who has sat on the throne for 70 years and is 88-years old, is gravely ill have prompted a belief that Thailand will join the Philippines in rejecting American dictates.
Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, the former mayor of Davao City in Mindanao, stunned the Obama administration by cozying up to China in the South China Sea maritime dispute. Duterte followed up his independent foreign policy by inviting China and Russia to establish bases in the Philippines, canceling further U.S.-Philippines military exercises in the region, and calling President Barack Obama a “son of a whore.” Durtete also told the United States, “Do not treat us like a doormat because you’ll be … We aren’t ‘little brown brothers of America.'”
The Obama administration’s trouble with Duterte began after U.S. ambassador to the Philippines Philip Goldberg began interfering in the domestic affairs of the Philippines, including the election that propelled Duterte into office. Goldberg has a history of involving himself in the affairs of countries where he is posted. In 2008, the Bolivian government of President Evo Morales expelled Goldberg, the U.S. ambassador, for stoking secessionist movements in four Bolivian provinces. In August of this year, Duterte called Goldberg a “bakla” son-of-a-bitch. Bakla is Tagalog for “gay.”
Upon the Thai king’s death, what has happened in the Philippines could see an instant replay in Thailand. Crown Prince Vajiralongkorn, the heir to the throne, is known to be close to former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra and his sister, former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, both of whom were ousted in military coups engineered by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. Thaksin was overthrown in 2006 and Yingluck in 2014. Yingluck, who was accused of corruption by Thailand’s “anti-graft” agency, saw essentially the same treatment as meted out to Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff, Honduran President Manuel Zelaya, and Paraguayan President Fernando Lugo.
Thaksin and Yingluck continue to enjoy wide support from the largely rural-based “Red Shirt” movement of Thailand. Vajiralongkorn is not popular with the loyal subjects of his father. In order to garner support for his reign, Vajiralongkorn may have to conclude a pact with not only Thaksin and Yingluck but also the Red Shirts, among whose ranks are a number of anti-monarchists. The Red Shirts are also opposed to American hegemony over Thailand and are suspected of receiving support from China…

Council on Foreign Relations – After Attributing a Cyberattack to Russia, the Most Likely Response Is Non Cyber
The John Kerry private meeting with Ecuador was made on the sidelines of the negotiations which took place pricipally on Sep 26 in Colombia.
Over the weekend WikiLeaks released three lines of code it described as “pre-commitments,” labeling them “John Kerry,” ”Ecuador,” and “FCO” — an apparent reference to Britain’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Pre-commitments are cryptographic functions that can be used to verify the integrity of material released subsequently. [our links]

A few highlights, with commentary…
Re: Here’s what I mentioned – from “H” to Podesta, a question about the provenance of the forces fighting the Islamists in Libya; and an acknowledgement that the Saudi and Qatari governments are “providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region”. Supporting ISIL with one concealed hand while handing a million dollar check to the Clinton Foundation with the other…
QATAR – Would like to see WJC “for five minutes” in NYC, to present $1 million check that Qatar promised for WJC’s birthday in 2011.
Qatar would have good reason to be thankful to the Clintons in 2011, as the $1 million check was but a pittance in comparison to what they expected to gain with the overthrow of Qaddafi. From the Stratfor email leaks of 2012…
The big prize is energy. Libya produced 1.6 million barrels of oil per day before the war, or almost 2 percent of world output, and has enough reserves to sustain that level of production for 77 years, according to BP. Qatar would like to control a chunk of that oil supply as well as potentially large Libyan gas exports to Europe which otherwise would effectively rival Qatar’s own deliveries.
Saudi Arabia likewise had much to gain with the overthrow of Qaddafi, while exacting revenge against a long standing nemesis. And, to add icing to the cake…
International Business Times (David Sirota, 5/26/15) – Clinton Foundation Donors Got Weapons Deals From Hillary Clinton’s State Department
Libya collapsed following Hillary and co.’s Arab Spring strategy to disrupt the social order throughout N. Africa and the Middle East. Domestically applied, this strategy seeks to stir racial tensions in the U.S. in order to advance the ulterior gun control agenda. For instance, this exchange between Corey Ciorciari and De’Ara Balenger on whether to exploit racially charged gun violence…
You know where I stand on this. It can be racially motivated and gun violence should still very much be part of the discussion. Even more so here given that Jordan’s mom is one of the leading gun violence prevention proponents in the country.

The Jordan case was not included in the published essay (Marie Claire), as it may have been considered too clear cut a case of racism (see The Florida Times-Union for the details of the case). We have long noted a selectivity for ambiguity in the picking and choosing of gun violence cases as agit prop to be wedged through racial fault lines (President Weatherman).
RE: Follow-up Media Call – The conniving of Hillary’s sleeper cells…
I think we have to settle on what roles need to be filled immediately and limit our activity to that. If we can create a “silent period” for a couple of weeks and possibly slow down the press appetite we can buy ourselves some space to fill in the team we want and need. This would starving the beast instead of feeding it.
I think as we continue to search, we have to one person assigned to each post, talking to only the people we need to talk and expand that search process when we run into a dead end. It seems clear that multiple people talking to multiple people is not a strategy for containment and containment has to be a top priority for the next six weeks I think.
This is mostly in reference to liaisons with the news media; there are however black bag operations…
From Bill Ivey – While bewailing the entertainment driven election season (as mastered by Trump), there is this startling admission:
And as I’ve mentioned, we’ve all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry. The unawareness remains strong but compliance is obviously fading rapidly. This problem demands some serious, serious thinking – and not just poll driven, demographically-inspired messaging.
To the contrary, while there is still a good deal of ignorance with the average American about the world surrounding them, their awareness is growing rapidly, which is precisely why compliance is shrinking – on both sides of the duopolist divide. On the Democratic side, it is suggested that by throwing bones to Bernie and his ‘bitchy’, ‘self-righteous’ supporters, the insurgency can be mollified…
Throw them some bones, then troll ’em…

WxxxNews – Of Riggs, Bandar, and Bush
As America swoons into hysteria over the Donald’s use of the word “pussy,” there is a another term of double entendre for the female genitalia that caught our attention in the Trump tape fury: Bush. Billy Bush, we will show, has good motivation to jog his memory of that conversation, conveniently caught on tape, of eleven years ago.
Donald’s buddy in the locker-room talk, Access Hollywood co-host Billy Bush is cousin to George W. and nephew to George H. W., being the son of Jonathan J. Bush (Skull and Bones ’53), who handled the accounts of foreign embassies at his J. Bush & Co., which in 1997 was purchased by the Riggs Bank (see Wikipedia; Howard Kurtz, “The First Brother,” The New Yorker, Oct. 8, 1990, excerpts at books.google; Washington Post of May 15, 2004, Web Site Cites Bush-Riggs Link, though the David Sirota article cited – “Bush’s Uncle Is Executive At Bank Fined for Laundering Saudi Money” – is not to be found in the archives of his current site, 404!; the oldest article still posted is from Sept. 1, 2004, Follow the Money.) It was from the Riggs account of Saudi ambassador to U.S. Prince Bandar (known as “Bandar Bush”) that funds were withdrawn and then transfered to alleged 9/11 hijackers Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaq al-Hazmi (see Ted Kahl at Democrats.com, Jan. 18, 2005: The Riggs Bank Scandal: Pinochet, the CIA, Saudis, 9/11…and…Jonathan Bush!).
With the recent release of the hitherto classified, but still partly redacted chapter in the congressional Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, (28 Pages), which reveals some of Prince Bandar’s and other Saudi royals’ connections to Al Qaeda and certain 9/11 operatives; also, with the recent passage, veto, and override of the JASTA bill (Congress), and with this the green light given for lawsuits against those Saudis who can be connected to the 9/11 attacks; the Bushes, but Jonathan particularly, may have something to worry over, should certain transactions be revealed through the discovery process of the anticipated lawsuits.
Jonathan Bush was elected in May 2000 as President & Chief Executive Officer and a Director of RIMCO, a wholly owned subsidiary of Riggs Bank N. A. -see SourceWatch. In 1988, Riggs Investment Management Corporation (RIMCO) is created as a subsidiary of Riggs Bank to manage all the money in the trust department and new clients in the institutional, non-profit and pension markets. -from Scripophily.com. Inasmuch as Jonathan handled accounts for foreign embassies with his J. Bush and Co., it is reasonable to assume that he would handle some of the same when Riggs purchased his company in ’97.
It is easy to see that the Bushes have a great interest in seeing a friend of the family installed in the Oval Office come January. It is no surprise then that markers are coming in heavy upon Trump. In Jeb’s marker on Trump, we anticipated it coming from another angle, but it may be coming yet – if a hail Mary pass is needed. There have already been false starts…
It is noteworthy that NBC was planning to break the story, while editing out Billy Bush’s voice before the WaPo scooped the story…
“They could have released the tape and edited him out,” the source says of the individual that leaked the footage. “That was the plan — they were trying to approve it and then someone leaked it. That’s what Access Hollywood eventually did and they played it … but it was already out,” the source says and adds, “If they wanted to protect him, they could have edited it out which they did on the final Access piece that aired on Friday, but they left it in when it was leaked.”
The WaPo apparently got its version of the tape from Dan Senor and wife Campbel Brown – see her tweet of acknowledgement: Yep. Still having fun after all these years. Key to a happy marriage… in answer to Arb Cowboy: Rumblings that Campbell Brown and Dan Senor are behind the Trump tape leak.
