In further coverage of what used to be called Operation — or Project — Mockingbird, the diffusion of certain headlines via the media is still alive and well.

On Thursday and Friday, August 2 and 3, 2018, the subject was QAnon, who must have hit a huge nerve among the powers that be.

Here’s the flurry of American headlines from last Thursday:

The following day, a contributor to 8chan’s Q Research board posted the following international stories, all of which are about QAnon fostering Trumpian conspiracy theories:

I read only the French article and the comments. The latter were particularly interesting, as the readers were divided. Someone wrote a characteristically critical remark about President Trump and his supporters, to which someone replied, ‘Inform yourself a bit before commenting. Trump’s doing a great job, especially with the economy’.

Back to the 8chan comment. Q responded (message 1806), emphases mine:

Q

Why would the rest of the world need — or even want — to know about QAnon and Q-related boards, including Reddit’s greatawakening?

By design, this Nightingale’s song serves only to thoroughly discredit Trump’s followers. What if a false flag were to take place with a fake Q follower? These articles could set the stage. The world would say, ‘Oh, the QAnon story was in the papers. Yeah, crazy people’.

Therefore, this is important:

Interestingly, the Washington Post featured an editorial after the Trump-Putin Helsinki meeting: ‘God bless the “deep state”‘, an image of which is here. It begins with this:

Before this harebrained and reckless administration is history, the nation will have cause to celebrate the public servants derided by Trumpists as the supposed “deep state” …

God bless them. With a supine Congress unwilling to play the role it is assigned by the Constitution, the deep state stands between us and the abyss.

If you appreciate President Trump, please continue to pray for his safety and that of his family and administration.

In February, I published a guest post from one of my readers, George True, on the Parkland, Florida school shooting. If you missed it, please be sure to read it.

A few days ago, George True commented on ‘The bottom to top plan to save America’, which explains why we have not seen high profile arrests yet. (If you haven’t read it, please do, as it will put what follows in context.

George kindly granted me permission to use his eloquent, inspired comment as a guest post. Emphases mine below.

This is an excellent Christian perspective on what is happening in America right now:

I certainly hope this what is happening behind the scenes. Many American patriots, including myself, were expecting to see a number of high level arrests and prosecutions by now. The sheer number of crimes committed by high ranking members of the Obama administration is almost overwhelming to contemplate. And the in-your-face audacity of it all and them more or less daring anyone to do anything about it is breathtaking in its arrogance. The weaponizing of virtually all agencies of government by the prior administration against anyone, including common people, who had different political views is a level of evil that is so far beyond the pale it defies description.

This is by far the greatest government scandal in the entire history of the United States. And so far the perpetrators have gotten away with it scot free. If they are not indicted and prosecuted for their many felonies committed against the American people, then one can truly say that there is no law anymore in the former constitutional republic known as America, except the law of the jungle.

The Deep State is attempting to isolate Trump and get him before he gets them. The Republican establishment in particular is complicit in the attempt to bring Trump down. Never in my life have I seen one of the major political parties not even attempt to defend the leader of their party. Most of them are probably compromised, either through blackmail or having been bought off. And the travesty of Mueller, one of the unindicted co-conspirators in the Uranium One scandal, investigating Trump on the bogus and fraudulent claim that his 2016 campaign somehow conspired with Russia is both disgusting and enraging to see day after day. If real justice were in effect, Mueller and his entire crew of virulently anti-Trump leftists, along with all of the main criminals of the Obama administration would be taken into custody by the Marine Corps and transported to Guantanamo forthwith, where they would await trial by military tribunal.

I am not a vengeful person. Yet my soul cries out to see justice done. Something on the order of seventy million American Christians who remember what our country used to be prayed daily and fervently to our God for deliverance from the criminal cabal that has had a stranglehold on every aspect of our government. Our prayers were answered in the form of President Donald Trump, an imperfect man, but one who also remembers what out country used to be and was willing to risk everything, up to and including his very life in order to restore our republic to we the people. I cannot believe that God would bring us this far only to have the Deep State take out our champion that He has anointed.

I still fervently pray, with all my strength and all my heart and soul that there is much going on behind the scenes that we do not know about. I pray daily for Donald Trump’s health and safety, and that things are proceeding according to plan. Let the corrupt media bray and spew their misinformation and deliberate disinformation. Let the Deep State think they have gotten away with it, even as the net slowly but surely encircles them. And let us all continue to fervently beseech God for justice, and to thank God for all that he has done and continues to do for each of us individually and all of us collectively. I want nothing more than to be a righteous man in a once again righteous nation – a nation that looks to God for guidance, protection, and love.

That is a perfect description of the egregious present and the God-fearing past in America.

I hope George seriously considers starting his own WordPress blog. His thoughts deserve a wide audience.

On Wednesday, January 24, 2018, the Revd Franklin Graham gave an interview to Todd Starnes on Fox News Radio.

Coup

On the coup, the Revd Graham told Todd Starnes (emphases mine):

I believe we are in a coup d’etat. There are people in this country who are wanting to destroy the president and take over the government by force.

Also:

Graham called on the nation to pray for the president and the vice president.

We need to pray for those that surround the president that God will protect them and keep them safe,” he said.

“I believe that he’s the president of this nation because God allowed it,” Graham. “And I think on election night, God intervened. He wasn’t supposed to win – he was supposed to lose. And I think it was God who worked in a mysterious way on election night to turn the tables.”

Recall that I wrote about a plot last summer (Threat of plot against Donald Trump is real), a coup in December (The case for a coup against Trump) and once more last week (The case for a coup against Trump).

Media

Graham rightly says that the media are complicit in the coup. Speaking of those who want to take down the president, he said:

They are not going to use bullets. They are using the media – to plant thoughts in people’s minds that he’s incompetent, that he’s dangerous, that you can’t trust him with nuclear weapons, that he is mentally unstable,” Graham said.

Trump

Another Fox News article about Graham’s interview stated that the president and CEO of Samaritan’s Purse caught flak for what he has said about President Donald Trump:

Graham and other Christian leaders have been targeted in recent days by the mainstream media for their unwavering support of the president. Many have been accused of hypocrisy for backing a man who is accused of cheating on his wife and using profanity.

Among Graham’s critics is GOPe former party chairman Michael Steele, who turned out to be a bitterly disappointing leader after the 2008 election. He did nothing to bring his own and other minorities into the Republican Party. My hopes were high, only to be dashed. I haven’t trusted the Republicans since. That said, they are still better than Democrats.

Steele, a Catholic and fierce never-Trumper, appeared on television to criticise Graham and other pro-Trump pastors:

I have a very simple admonition at this point,” Michael Steele said on MSNBC’s “Hardball.” “Just shut the hell up and don’t ever preach to me about anything ever again. I don’t want to hear it.”

Steele, the former head of the Republican National Committee, was furious at evangelicals.

“After telling me how to live my life, who to love, what to believe, what not to believe, what to do and what not to do and now you sit back and the prostitutes don’t matter? The grabbing the you-know-what doesn’t matter? The outright behavior and lies don’t matter? Just shut up.”

The Fox News article explained the background to Steele’s comment went back to the 2016 campaign:

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, drew fire after he said evangelicals gave President Trump a second chance

Both Graham and Perkins pointed out that Trump’s alleged sinful transgressions occurred long before he took the oath of office. On the other hand, Bill Clinton’s admitted indiscretions not only happened during his presidential term – they literally happened in the Oval Office.

Yes, they did indeed!

Back to Graham’s biblical explanation of his support of Trump:

We are all flawed people,” he told the “Todd Starnes Radio Show.” “The president is a sinner. Franklin Graham is a sinner. We are not perfect people.”

He called the accusations against the president unfortunate and distracting.

“Has he had scandals in his life? Sure he has,” Graham told me. “These scandals happened a number of years ago. That doesn’t make it right. I don’t condone bad language. I don’t condone adultery.”

But for now – Graham said he still supports President Trump.

“He’s not perfect, but he’s our president,” Graham said. “He said he didn’t do it. I have to take his word over that of the media – that is trying to lynch him.”

Also:

However, should evidence come to light that Trump had engaged in such behavior while in office, Graham said he would speak out with condemnation.

Absolutely.

The reason I said Graham’s words about ‘flawed people’ are biblical is that they refer to the following verses, which also cite Psalm 14:1-3, with the same words:

Psalm 53:1-3:

53 The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
    They are corrupt, doing abominable iniquity;
    there is none who does good.

God looks down from heaven
    on the children of man
to see if there are any who understand,[b]
    who seek after God.

They have all fallen away;
    together they have become corrupt;
there is none who does good,
    not even one.

Romans 3:10-12:

10 as it is written:

None is righteous, no, not one;
11     no one understands;
    no one seeks for God.
12 All have turned aside; together they have become worthless;
    no one does good,
    not even one.”

Graham, who refrained from endorsing Trump or anyone else in 2016, concluded by saying:

“The only hope for this country is God,” Graham said. “I don’t have any faith in the Republican Party. I don’t have any faith in the Democrat Party. The only hope for this nation is God.”

That is true for the United States and true for every nation in the world.

I will have more on the media and the coup this week.

Earlier this week, I posted about an anti-Christmas message from 2014 that the Washington Post recycled this year.

There is more news about WaPo to tell.

A WaPo reader is upset

Jean-Marie Simon, who has read WaPo for 20 years, gave the paper information about her Christmas flight on United. Simon had bought a first-class ticket — seat 1A — only to find that she had been bumped by congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas).

The Daily Mail has the full story with photos and Simon’s relevant Facebook posts. It is not surprising that WaPo did not want to cover it. What is surprising is that Simon, a schoolteacher, thought they would do so (Facebook post courtesy of Reddit):

Here’s another — albeit facetious — view of the situation. Courtesy of 8chan:

One wonders if Simon will continue to read WaPo after this.

Perhaps this incident red-pilled her.

The Post

In other WaPo news, a movie — The Post — made its debut before Christmas. The New York Post gave it three out of four stars.

This film documents how WaPo increased its national prominence as a newspaper.

The story is about the Pentagon Papers, which was a huge exposé in 1971 about how Lyndon Johnson’s administration lied about the Vietnam War. Daniel Ellsberg was the Edward Snowden of his day. He had worked on the papers, a study officially called United States – Vietnam Relations, 1945–1967: A Study Prepared by the Department of Defense.

Ellsberg and a friend, Anthony Russo, photocopied the pages in 1969 and approached a few political luminaries to see if they would be interested in disclosing it. Henry Kissinger, who was Richard Nixon’s national security adviser at the time, declined. So did two Democrat legislators.

In 1971, Ellsberg approached a reporter at the New York Times, giving him 43 volumes the following month. These were not published until June 13 that year. The excerpts were dubbed The Pentagon Papers.

The Nixon administration quickly tried — but failed — to stop the NYT from publishing another excerpt on June 14. Although one would have thought Nixon — a Republican — would have relished this as Johnson was a Democrat, Henry Kissinger told him that allowing the excerpts to continue would be dangerous, as nothing would prevent newspapers from publishing dirty laundry from his administration.

Oh, the irony — think Watergate, which WaPo broke with daily coverage from Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein.

Furthermore, the Nixon administration argued that Ellsberg and his friend Russo were guilty of a felony because they were circulating classified documents.

Attorney General John Mitchell and Nixon obtained a federal injunction forcing the NYT to stop publication after three articles. The NYT appealed and the case New York Times Co. v. United States (403 U.S. 713) quickly ended up in the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, Ellsberg had given other portions of the study to WaPo reporter Ben Bagdikian, who took them to the paper’s legendary editor, Ben Bradlee. WaPo began publishing the excerpts on June 18.

Assistant Attorney General William Rehnquist asked WaPo to stop publishing, but WaPo refused. Rehnquist tried — but failed — to get an injunction issued in US district court.

Ultimately, the NYT won the case in the Supreme Court on June 30, 1971. Fifteen other newspapers began publishing parts of the Pentagon Papers. In 1973, all charges against Ellsberg and Russo were dismissed — because of theft and bribery by the Nixon administration with regard to the case.

The Post shows how WaPo decided to publish the Pentagon Papers with all the drama involved.

The film also shows the male-dominated world of Katharine Graham, the only female publisher of a notable newspaper at the time. She was WaPo‘s publisher from 1969 to 1979. She then became chairman of the board and CEO before relinquishing the latter position in 1993. She continued to serve as chairman of the board until her death in 2001 at the age of 84.

Graham wisely put investigative reporting front and centre in a successful effort to ensure the NYT would not grab all the big Washington stories, such as the Pentagon Papers and Watergate.

The New York Post‘s review says that, when this film was made, a female occupant of the White House was envisioned for 2017.

So much for that.

The present occupant makes much out of fake news, predominant in today’s WaPo and the NYT.

Philip Graham

Katharine Meyer Graham rose to the top at WaPo because she succeeded her husband Philip. Also of note is that her father, Eugene Meyer, bought the paper in a bankruptcy auction in 1933. Philip Graham succeeded his father-in-law as publisher in 1946.

Philip Graham (1915-1963) was an interesting character with a lot of Deep State connections. Spartacus Educational has a well-researched entry on him. Do read it all, including the footnotes. A summary with excerpts follows.

He was born in a small town in South Dakota. His parents relocated to Florida during his childhood. Graham ended up attending Harvard Law School and edited the Harvard Law Review.

He married Katharine Meyer in 1940, during which time he was a law clerk for the famous Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter. Graham joined the Army Air Corps in 1942. He worked for the head of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), William Donovan. In 1944:

Graham was recruited into the “Special Branch, a super-secret part of Intelligence, run by Colonel Al McCormick”. He later worked under General George Kenney, commander of the Allied Air Forces in the Southwest Pacific. Graham was sent to China where he worked with John K. Singlaub, Ray S. Cline, Richard Helms, E. Howard Hunt, Mitchell WerBell, Jake Esterline, Paul Helliwell, Robert Emmett Johnson and Lucien Conein. Others working in China at that time included Tommy Corcoran, Whiting Willauer and William Pawley.

From this, we can see that he was incredibly well-connected to power.

After the war, as the publisher for WaPo, he expanded his network further with a group of men known as the Georgetown Set. They included:

Frank Wisner, George Kennan, Dean Acheson, Richard Bissell, Desmond FitzGerald, Joseph Alsop, Stewart Alsop, Tracy Barnes, Thomas Braden, David Bruce, Clark Clifford, Walt Rostow, Eugene Rostow, Chip Bohlen, Cord Meyer, James Angleton, William Averill Harriman, John McCloy, Felix Frankfurter, John Sherman Cooper, James Reston, Allen W. Dulles and Paul Nitze.

Whilst this is showing my age, I grew up hearing and reading a lot of those names.

It is likely that Graham already knew some of those men from the war. Allen Dulles, to name but one, ran the New York OSS office.

Dulles headed the CIA during Dwight Eisenhower’s presidency. Richard Bissell worked with him. Cord Meyer was in the CIA. Meyer was involved with Project, or Operation, Mockingbird, which used big media outlets to drive a government narrative:

According to Katherine Graham, her husband worked overtime at the Post during the Bay of Pigs operation to protect the reputations of his friends who had organized the ill-fated venture.

By the time of the 1960 presidential campaign, Graham did what he could to get Lyndon Johnson in the vice presidential slot for John Kennedy:

Graham met Lyndon B. Johnson in 1953. Graham believed that one day Johnson would make a good president. Graham told Johnson that his main problem was that he was perceived in Washington as someone under the control of the Texas oil and gas industry. Graham added that his attitude towards civil rights was also hurting him with liberals in the North. He was advised to go a “bit beyond (Richard) Russell and yet far short of (Hubert) Humphrey”.

Graham was a supporter of the Democratic Party and did what he could to get Johnson the nomination in 1960. When John F. Kennedy defeated Johnson he sent Clark Clifford to ask Stuart Symington to be his running-mate. Symington accepted the post but said: “I bet you a hundred dollars that no matter what he says, Jack will not make me his running mate. He will have to pick Lyndon”.

In the background Graham and Joseph Alsop were attempting to persuade John F. Kennedy to appoint Lyndon B. Johnson instead. Despite the objection of Robert Kennedy and other leading advisers, Kennedy decided to replace Symington with Johnson.

Once Kennedy was in the White House, Graham succeeded in persuading him to appoint his (Graham’s) buddies to administration positions: Douglas Dillon as Secretary of the Treasury, Arthur Schlesinger (former OSS) as a presidential adviser and David Bruce as ambassador to London.

Graham was able to expand the Washington Post Company by purchasing a radio and a television station as well as Newsweek and two prominent art magazines:

The main person involved in arranging Graham’s takeover of other media companies was Fritz Beebe. He ran the law firm Cravath, Swaine, & Moore. This was the company owned by Al McCormick, who Graham met during the war. Averell Harriman was another one involved in these negotiations.

Behind the scenes, things were less rosy, Even before Eugene Meyer died in 1959, a rift was growing between Philip and Katharine — Kay, to her friends. Graham’s mental state was not very good, either. Meyer wondered whether he should turn the company over to his son-in-law:

The Post publisher took a mistress, Robin Webb, whom he set up in a large house in Washington and a farm outside of the city. A heavy drinker who reportedly had manic-depressive tendencies, Graham, in some respects, was his own worst enemy, stridently abusive to his wife, both privately and publicly.

Katharine Graham’s biographer, Deborah Davis, posited that Graham was beginning to bother the CIA. After his second nervous breakdown he talked openly about how troubling he found Operation Mockingbird in terms of manipulating journalists:

He said it to the CIA… He turned against the newsmen and politicians whose code was mutual trust and, strangely, silence. The word was that Phil Graham could not be trusted. Graham was actually under surveillance by somebody. Davis has noted that one of Graham’s assistants “recorded his mutterings on scraps of paper.”

Others suggest that Graham had been damaged from undergoing CIA and other psychiatric treatments involving mind-altering drugs.

Graham told one of his close friends, WaPo attorney Edward Bennett Williams, that he wanted a divorce and planned on rewriting his will to leave everything — including the Washington Post Company — to his mistress instead of to Kay.

Williams was able to delay a divorce, but Graham rewrote his will three times in the spring of 1963. The last version omitted Kay altogether.

Then, Graham addressed a newspaper publishers convention in Arizona in a tirade about the CIA and Washington:

even to the point of exposing his friend John Kennedy’s affair with Mary Meyer, the wife of a top CIA official, Cord Meyer (no relation to Katharine Graham).

Katharine heard about it and flew to Phoenix:

and snatched up her husband who was captured after a struggle, put in a straitjacket and sedated. He was then flown to an exclusive mental clinic in the Washington suburb of Rockville, Md.

On the morning of Aug. 3, 1963, Katharine Graham reportedly told friends that Philip was “better” and coming home.

Suicides

That day in 1963, Philip Graham killed himself at home while Katharine was napping upstairs. The New York Post gives us this detail that other media outlets often suppress. He:

committed suicide at age 48 by shooting himself with a 28-gauge shotgun in 1963, days after being released from a psychiatric hospital following six weeks of treatment.

As he was not of sound mind when he died, his will was declared invalid. As he died intestate, Katharine assumed control of the Washington Post Company.

On December 20, 2017, one of the Grahams’ sons, William, 69, also committed suicide. He did not work at WaPo. He was a lawyer and law professor at UCLA. In later life, he turned to philanthropy. He died at his home in Los Angeles.

WaPo reported:

The cause was a self-inflicted gunshot wound, said his brother Donald E. Graham, a former Post publisher and chief executive.

Like Philip, William also left behind a wife and grown children. I hope they find comfort in the months ahead.

William did not live to see the national release of The Post.

Some reading this would be delighted if President Donald Trump were toppled from office.

With the recent revelations during the past two weeks, it does not appear as if this will happen (thank goodness), but the coup is real.

In July, I wrote about a South African — now American — Evangelical pastor who held a 24/7 prayer vigil at his church praying for Trump’s safety.

Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne is no tin-foil hat wearer. The danger is real.

Cascade Free Zone has an excellent article, ‘The Deep State Coup’, which is brilliantly written and informative. I highly recommend it.

Brief excerpts and a summary follow. Emphases mine below.

The coup has been going on since the November 8, 2016 election. The means and accusations were in place long before then — e.g. the Russian dossier. Note that the dossier is still in active play and old accusations about Trump and women are making the news cycle once again. Impeachment stories feature strongly as do news items about the president’s mental state.

Now:

We are approaching the end of the first-phase of the coup. This is a non-military coup, but what we are witnessing clearly fits the definition of “the overt seizure of the state by an elite within the state apparatus”.

Renowned patriot author and speaker Matt Bracken, in a series of postings and interviews, has outlined the basic mechanics of the coup.   Central figures include former FBI director James Comey and the Independent Counsel Robert Mueller, assistant US Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and current  acting director of the FBI Andrew McCabe.  Motivation for all of them is self-preservation.  As we have learned Clinton-World was a very corrupt place and the list of self-serving deals and those who benefited from them includes all of the key plotters.  None of them believed there was any chance Hillary would lose and leave them exposedShe didThey are.

Here is an illustration of the plot:

The Special Counsel investigation of Russian collusion — led by Robert Mueller — has not found the president guilty of anything.

Meanwhile, several Democrats have found themselves embroiled in impropriety.

So have law enforcement organisations, such as the FBI:

Americans of a certain generation have to strip away the years of propaganda indoctrination that the FBI are “the good guys” and look closely at what they do. The DOJ are their partners in all this, together they are the muscle of the Deep State plotters.

As for the wiretapping — the word the New York Times used in a headline — of Trump Tower last year:

This was clearly an illegal use of the most powerful wiretapping tool in the US law enforcement arsenal. FISA warrants were created to help prevent terrorism, not to ensure election of Deep State approved candidates. It has been criminally misused by the Obama administration to spy on political opponents and blackmail them with the illicitly obtained knowledge.

This goes further than deposing Trump. This is meant to also prevent his successor, Vice President Mike Pence, from taking his place:

the Deep State agenda is not merely to remove Trump, but also to remove Pence, Ryan, McConnell and whoever else stands in their way. Discussion of “do-over elections” is a serious topic there, as is simply removing every person until a flexible insider is found to run things.

Good grief. If that isn’t a totalitarian notion, what is?

There are minor — yet seemingly powerful — players, too. Saul Montes-Bradley has a good Twitter thread, excerpted below, spelling edited (photos in the thread):

(3) Two major events occupied out time last year during the campaign: The Clinton investigation over Hillary’s corrupt and felonious handling of her office as Secretary of State, and the,”Steele Dossier,” that abhorrent and at times sophomoric attempt to besmirch candidate Trump.

(6) I have tried to keep abreast of events as they developed, from the collusion of a venal press with the DNC, to the shenanigans of FBI agents in the Mueller probe.

(8) But it is much, much worse.

And all is coming together now.

Let’s bring a few more names to the forefront.

Does anyone remember Aaron Zebley? …

(9) Zebley was Mueller’s Chief of Staff at the FBI before becoming a Senior Counselor in the National Security Division at the Department of Justice.

Before that he was Special Agent of the FBI in the Counterterrorism Division for seven years.

(10) In between his two tours at the FBI, Zebley served as an Assistant US Attorney (AUSA) in the National Security and Terrorism Unit in Alexandria, Virginia.

If he is any measure, no wonder the fight against terrorism was an utter failure for years!

(11) In March 2014, he joined the law firm Wilmer Hale. “Aaron’s experience at the FBI, DoJ and the US Attorney’s Office will add to our internal investigations, crisis management and cybersecurity capabilities,” crowed his new managing partner …

wilmerhale.com/pages/publicat…

(12) Guess who this upstanding shyster represented there?

Justin Cooper

(13) Yep.

The cretin who set up the Hilldebeast private email server in her basement and then took a hammer to the blackberries she claimed she did not use!

The one who handled classified information without a security clearance.

(14) [Zebley] … went from defending Cooper to the Russia investigation under Mueller, working with McCabe and Strzok, who were supposed to have investigated Cooper

Go figure.

(15) There’s always room for a couple more … in this caper.

Enter Andrew Weissman, for one.

(16) he returned to the Bureau in 2015 (amazing how many of these vermin found their way back to the bureau in 2015, isn’t it.)

This time as Chief of the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section.

Fraud, mind you.

(20) There are quite a number more.

Like Jeannie Rhea, a shyster in Mueller’s team, who defended Ben Rhodes, finally a focus of the investigation into the “unmasking” caper.

She and 8 others donated to the Hilldebeast’s campaign.

(21) Or Rudy Contreras, judge who presided over @GenFlynn’s plea agreement without telling anybody he was on the FISA court that authorized the tapping of Trump’s phones and God knows why, suddenly remembered and recused himself.

ONE DAY AFTER THE PLEA.

Did he find religion?

(22) And then of course, there’s good ‘ol Bruce Ohr, former Associate Deputy Attorney General, AND Director of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces.

“Former” since Trump demoted him four days ago

(23) Why was he demoted?

Oh, well, he forgot to declare a minor detail to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) investigating a tiny thingy called the “Trump Dossier.”

What did he forget?

(24) Nothing much. Just that he had “ties” to Fusion GPS and its founder, Glenn Simpson.
It gets better. Simpson had introduced him to Christopher Steele (though some sources he has known Steele for 10 years!).

(25) Steele, yes, the chap who concocted that abomination paid for by the DNC to smear candidate Trump.

Ohr met with Steele SEVERAL TIMES during the campaign, just as this thing was going on, and back with Simpson soon after the election.

What a coincidence!

(26) In fact, Simpson and Ohr met “around Thanksgiving” to discuss “the anti-Trump dossier, the Russia investigation and what Simpson considered the “distressing development of Trump’s victory.”

Distressing, indeed. And after all that work, too!

(27) But that’s not all.

Who was working with Steele in the cooking of the infamous dossier but Ohr’s better half, his wife, Nellie.

What do you know, SHE was HIRED by Fusion GPS in 2016!

Her area of expertise? You guessed it: Russia, Russia Russia.

(28) Ohr didn’t declare any of this. Oops! Forgot.

It was discovered by the HPSCI, but only after threatening Director Wray and Deputy Dog Rosenstein with finding them in contempt …

(29) And this in spite of the obstruction of … Adam Schiff, who tried every which way to stop the committee.

Uncharacteristically, he is now silent over this.

Cat ate his tongue.

(30) Who else had his nose in this?

Peter Strzokwho interrogated @GenFlynn without a lawyer and without disclosing his conflicts of interest.

(31) Now, as the Dimms like to remind us, there is under Federal law the crime of conspiracy to perform a criminal act.

Indeed, if it turns out that these band of 3rd world misfits conspired to undermine the investigation into the Clinton mishandling of classified information

(32) AND to pervert the 2016 elections AND to undermine the legitimately elected President of the United states, while endangering the country creating conflicts with foreign powers

(33) …not to mention other beauties like egregious violations of the Hatch Act, lying to Congress, falsifying informationthey should be in a world of trouble

(34) Meanwhile, five have already been demoted or suspended pending investigation, one has been recused and, suddenly, it looks as if the … charge against @GenFlynn might well end up dismissed as the only evidence against him is the tainted word of a felon.
Poisoned fruit

(35) What upsets me the most, especially today, is that the FBI these vermin corrupted into a political police doing the dirty job of the DNC, neglected its counter espionage functions and endangered us all.

(37) I said months ago that the Dimms may come to regret ever having demanded this investigation.

It looks like that was an understatement.

They swallowed the hook, line and sinker.

Amateur hour is over.

Somebody WAS looking.

FINIS

Ultimately, the coup will fail. In fact, it looks as if many of the players are imploding. More will follow suit.

We can only hope that they are fully investigated and, where possible, prosecuted and sentenced.

On October 25, 2017, I posted an entry about the JFK files and included material from a video by Dick Morris, who explained the political background at the time of the Kennedy assassination.

Morris was an advisor to Bill Clinton for 20 years but eventually saw the error of his ways and became a Republican.

In the video below, he first discusses the Uranium One scandal and the dossier on Trump. These two issues, he says, are huge. Both point to Hillary Clinton:

Robert Mueller is investigating Trump’s connections to Russia. However, with more information coming out about Uranium One — for a summary, see my post from October 2016 — it looks as if Mueller’s investigation could turn from Trump to Clinton.

As for the dossier, Morris says that it could profoundly affect the FBI and CIA. According to him, former MI6 agent Christopher Steele has had longstanding ties with the FBI, beginning with the FIFA World Cup bribery scandal in 2010. Morris says that his research has uncovered that Steele himself did not write the dossier but was given anonymous documents to compile.

Where did they come from? Morris thinks the FBI and CIA were out to prevent Trump from taking office.

Hillary’s campaign funded the dossier, paying Fusion GPS, who had hired Steele. Morris says the FBI must have known that. The dossier was supposed to have been released after the election to scupper Trump’s votes in the Electoral College in December 2016, but it was not. It surfaced on January 11, 2017, nine days before Trump’s inauguration. The timing was meant to prevent Trump from being inaugurated.

Yet, to date, none of what is in the dossier is true.

Morris says that Steele is the common link here to Fusion GPS (which has Russian clients), the FBI, the CIA and MI6. He says to watch for more information coming in the weeks ahead.

Also relevant, Morris says, is the unmasking scandal, whereby Trump and some of his associates were bugged in Trump Tower.

One of the people under investigation is a man named Carter Page. Morris tells us that Carter Page was never part of Trump’s campaign team. At one point, he said he was a part-time adviser to the Trump campaign, but, in fact, he was a volunteer and only peripherally. He had never even met Trump. The Trump campaign wrote to him, Morris says, telling him to stop saying he was an adviser. Strangely, Page’s name showed up in Steele’s dossier as being one of the primary go-to men between Trump and Vladimir Putin. The FBI also had him under surveillance. Morris says this is how Carter Page came to be investigated. Page has been interviewed off and on this year by the FBI and the Senate and House Intelligence Committees. He last gave testimony to the House Intelligence Committee on November 2.

Something big is about to unravel. Trump can sit back and watch it explode.

The second part of Morris’s video concerns the November 3 release of more JFK files — 553 CIA documents, to be precise. Morris is amazed that, after 54 years, the agencies involved are still asking for more time (up to April 26, 2018), to go through their documents.

The National Archives press release states, in part:

The majority of the public release today consists of 553 Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) records that were previously denied in their entirety.  Also included in the release are records from components of the Departments of Justice (18) and Defense (48), the House Select Committee on Assassinations (56), and the National Archives (1).  Released records are available for download.

More to follow.

In closing, Dick Morris’s latest book, Rogue Spooks, co-authored with Eileen McGann, came out in August. The readers who commented on Amazon say that Morris explains the goings-on with the FBI and CIA clearly and in-depth. The book also includes background to the aforementioned dossier (emphases mine):

This dossier―filled with little more than gossip, rumor, and innuendo―was compiled by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence operative who teamed up with the FBI and anti-Trump partisans. Hillary Clinton supporters paid for Steele’s work.

When no news media would publish the unverified dossier, the ex-spook enlisted the help of a former UK ambassador to Russia, who arranged in turn for a former U.S. assistant secretary of state to get the document to Senator John McCain, in the hope that he would then bring it to FBI Director James Comey’s attention. McCain did just that.

Comey himself played a critical role in the dossier ultimately going public, giving a confidential summary to President Obama and congressional leaders. It was immediately leaked by rogue spooks in order to demean, destabilize, and destroy Donald Trump’s nascent presidency.

The dossier and this mythical intelligence are the basis for the phony claims about a Russia-Trump collusion to steal the election. No proof was found. No substantiation uncovered. Even Comey told Trump he was not under investigation for the Russian meddling charges.

But that didn’t end the leaks or the allegations. Working in concert with liberal news outlets, these rogue spooks have formed a new Intel/Media complex that threatens our democracy.

I still know too many people who believe what passes as news, including this dossier. One woman I know is sure that the content is true. She couldn’t be more wrong, but it’s doubtful that even Dick Morris could convince her. Sad!

A fortnight after the Mandalay Bay massacre took place, a video appeared on YouTube concerning a 1962 Deep State false flag proposal known as Operation Northwoods:

Wikipedia introduces it as follows (bold emphasis in the original, emphases in purple mine):

Operation Northwoods was a proposed false flag operation against the Cuban government that originated within the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) of the United States government in 1962. The proposals called for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) or other U.S. government operatives to commit acts of terrorism against American civilians and military targets, blaming it on the Cuban government, and using it to justify a war against Cuba. The plans detailed in the document included the possible assassination of Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the high seas, hijacking planes, blowing up a U.S. ship, and orchestrating violent terrorism in U.S. cities.[2] The proposals were rejected by the Kennedy administration.[3]

At the time of the proposal, communists led by Fidel Castro had recently taken power in Cuba. The operation proposed creating public support for a war against Cuba by blaming it for terrorist acts that would actually be perpetrated by the U.S. Government.[4] To this end, Operation Northwoods proposals recommended hijackings and bombings followed by the introduction of phony evidence that would implicate the Cuban government.

The probable behind-the-scenes goal of the Mandalay Bay massacre was to create legislation for nationwide gun control. Another probable goal was to increase surveillance — e.g. the number of airport-style scanners — around the nation in places that do not currently have them. Manufacturers of various types of scanning equipment stood to make millions of dollars.

Because we have so few facts about what happened at Mandalay Bay — and other hotels — the video about Operation Northwoods provides an example of possible contrivance, especially if Deep State were involved.

The couple who present the video go through the declassified document page by page. It is worth viewing.

We learn that Northwoods would have been a highly planned and staged sequence of events (8:43, 8:45, 8:52):

(1) Start rumors (many). Use clandestine radio.

(2) Land friendly Cubans in uniform “over the fence” to stage attack on base.

(3) Capture Cuban (friendly) saboteurs inside the base.

(4) Start riots near the base main gate (friendly Cubans).

(5) Blow up ammunition inside the base; start fires.

(6) Burn aircraft on air base (sabotage).

(7) Lob mortar shells from outside of base into base.

(8) Capture assault teams approaching from the sea or vicinity of Guantanamo City.

(9) Capture militia group which storms the base.

(10) Sabotage ship in harbor; large fires — napthalene.

(11) Sink ship near harbor entrance. Conduct funerals for mock victims (may be in lieu of (10)).

Also (10:20):

3. A “Remember the Maine” incident could be arranged in several forms:

a. We could blow up a ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba.

b. We could blow up a drone (unmanned) vessel anywhere in the Cuban waters. We could arrange to cause such incident in the vicinity of Havana or Santiago as a spectacular result of Cuban attack from the air or sea, or both …

And (13:14):

The terror campaign could be pointed at Cuban refugees seeking haven in the United States. We could sink a boatload of Cubans enroute to Florida (real or simulated). We could foster attempts on lives of Cuban refugees in the United States even to the extent of wounding in instances to be highly publicised. Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots, the arrest of Cuban agents and the release of prepared documents substantiating Cuban involvement also would be helpful …

A fake civilian airplane attack was also envisaged (16:33, 17:01):

8. It is possible to create an incident which will demonstrate convincingly that a Cuban aircraft has attacked and shot down a chartered civil airliner enroute from the United States to Jamaica, Guatemala, Panama or Venezuela …

a. An aircraft at Eglin AFB would be painted and numbered as an exact duplicate for a civil registered aircraft belonging to a CIA proprietary organization in the Miami area. At a designated time the duplicate would be substituted for the actual civil aircraft and would be loaded with the selected passengers, all boarded under carefully prepared aliases. The actual registered aircraft would be converted to a drone …

The video shows the pages from the document detailing exactly how this would work.

All of this was designed to manipulate public opinion.

The people who put this document together did not care about human life.

The video also shows footage of the aftermath of other horrific incidents, including the neat stack of passports found after 9/11. I, too, have often wondered how those passports looked so pristine, given the circumstances. Hmm.

In any event, keep Operation Northwoods in mind when horrific incidents occur.

This week, citizen journalists returned to Las Vegas to comb the city for more evidence and information connected to the devastating events of Sunday, October 1. If anything substantial develops, I will write about it.

This week, President Donald Trump is due to open files to the public regarding the John F Kennedy assassination on November 22, 1963:

The ‘further information’ in that sentence refers to any information that might jeopardise America’s national security or have an adverse impact on someone who is still alive, in which case secrecy would override public disclosure.

Recently, I saw an excellent — and short — video wherein Dick Morris, now a Republican but formerly an advisor to Bill Clinton, explains the political context of the JFK assassination. I did not know some of the details Morris discusses below:

Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) — serving as vice president at the time — was being investigated for having bribed senators during his time as Senate majority leader and for shady business deals in Texas involving oilmen as well as television and radio station licences in the Austin market.

The Senate had been investigating both scandals and was ready to indict Johnson. It is likely he would have gone to prison.

Had JFK not been shot, Time magazine had planned a cover story for that week with the vice president’s picture and the caption ‘Johnson in Trouble’.

JFK’s personal secretary, Evelyn Lincoln, said later that the president was planning to drop Johnson for the 1964 presidential election. Johnson, no doubt, already knew that while the Senate was investigating him.

Was Johnson somehow involved behind the scenes? Morris, who has read a great deal on the subject, says that LBJ had close organised crime — mob — connections in Dallas and New Orleans. He also had good relationships with the police in those cities. Therefore, the possibility of collusion exists.

Morris says the assassination could have been one of the earliest and most ‘virulent’ manifestations of the Deep State.

In his presidential farewell address in January 1961, Dwight D Eisenhower warned the American public that the military industrial complex could get out of control. I wrote about it earlier this year. Eisenhower spoke of the:

unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex …

The Deep State did not like JFK. He was starting to roll back their influence, particularly in the Cold War. He signed a nuclear test-ban treaty with Russia and wanted rapprochement. Had he lived to run for re-election, one of his campaign positions was pulling out of Vietnam.

LBJ was much more amenable to Deep State objectives.

After the assassination, LBJ set up the Warren Commission, which was supposed to find and reveal the truth behind it. Unfortunately, that did not happen. The commission concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. Yet, there were likely to have been multiple shooters that day, possibly three, perhaps four.

Morris posits that the output of the Warren Commission was probably driven by the CIA and FBI. If the truth had come out, Morris says, there might have been severe public unrest in the United States, maybe even a revolution.

So, all being well, we should find out more about the assassination on Thursday, October 26, 2017.

I pray that the American people get closure on this subject. I hope the information is readable with minimal redactions.

At the weekend, another new — and bad — media narrative appeared: Charlottesville.

Charlottesville is in Virginia and should not be confused with Charlotte, North Carolina.

By now, everyone reading this will have seen video footage and commentary on the violence.

Although no one will entertain talking about it in Big Media, this was likely to have been a false flag driven by powerful opponents to President Donald Trump and executed by extremist and disturbed minions on the left as well as the right.

We do not know all of the facts yet, therefore, further speculation is premature.

This was the president’s statement in full. In it, he said that many groups were responsible:

A professor who is an expert on nationalism concurred:

Fox News has a summary of those on the left and the right who complained about Trump’s statement. Former Arkansas governor and Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said:

“Donald Trump, I thought, was very explicitly clear in condemning what happened,” he said on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.” “He will never satisfy those who hate his every word.”

The Washington Examiner reported that Huckabee also said:

some people “cannot get over the fact he is president”.

A Department of Justice and FBI investigation is currently underway.

One hopes the investigators will find out exactly who issued the order for the police to stand down. The police are there to protect protesters who have a permit to demonstrate. Both left and right had permission to be there on Saturday, August 12. The left said they would be peaceful, but they came with the weapons, not the others. The police left defenceless people unable to fend off their aggressors. Then there was the guy in the car. You can see the footage here; also note the broken windscreens, front and rear.

The city — and the state — are governed by Democrats.

Trump supporters are highly suspicious of what took place. One says the events in Charlottesville look just like the Soros-engineered ones in Ukraine in 2014. Virginia declared a state of emergency and, as no one is talking about the violent left-wing groups, it would not be unreasonable to assume there could be calls for martial law in various states.

There are further indications that this could have been a false flag: a) a Soros-backed organisation was preparing to go days before Trump supporters (who, incidentally, did not go) learned of the event and b) the Charlottesville mayor worked with Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta at the Center for American Progress as well as on Obama’s transition team.

There was also a man whom MSNBC and the New York Times interviewed who happened to be at the protests in Charlottesville on Saturday. He worked for the State Department and managed a Democrat  Virginia gubernatorial campaign. (Mirror link of the images is here, in case the other link is removed.)

Hmm. Never think the Deep State couldn’t be involved in this.

By the way, August 12 just happened to be Soros’s birthday.

All of this was designed to make Trump and his supporters look evil.

But, who is decrying the violent leftists there that day? No one in the media. Telling, isn’t it?

Condolences to the families of the lady and two state police officers who, sadly, lost their lives that day. I hope that those who were injured recover fully and soon.

On Tuesday, July 11, 2017, after the G20 and before President Donald Trump’s trip to Paris for Bastille Day, the Trump administration met with a group of Evangelical pastors who are members of the Office of Public Liaison.

Later, they were invited into the Oval Office to meet President Trump. Among them were Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne of Revival Ministries International and his wife Adonica.

The group prayed over the president.

Pastor Howard-Browne has got to know Trump over the past year or so, and he is also well acquainted with certain American politicians.

The following day, he received shocking news from a Congressman who has been in office since 1996. The two met privately for three hours that night.

The Congressman revealed to Howard-Browne that ‘news on the Hill’ is that a bi-partisan plot to ‘immobilise’ Trump is in the making.

And, there have been rumblings in the media that this is true. Here is a video of CNN’s Wolf Blitzer interviewing John Brennan, Former Director, Central Intelligence Agency and James Clapper, Former Director of National Intelligence. The three appeared together recently at the Aspen (Colorado) Security Forum:

An accompanying article on Zero Hedge says that Brennan told Blitzer (emphases mine):

if the White House tries to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, government officials should refuse to follow the president[‘s] orders, as they would be – in his view – “inconsistent” with the duties of the executive branch …

“That Republicans, Democrats are going to see that the future of this government is at stake and something needs to be done for the good of the future,” Brennan told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer at the Aspen Security Forum, effectively calling for a coup against the president should Trump give the order to fire Mueller.

Meanwhile, Pastor Howard-Browne relayed to his congregation what the Congressman told him. You can see what he said in this clip from Infowars which also features an interview with him that aired on Wednesday, July 26:

Howard-Browne told CBN (Christian Broadcasting Network, founded by the Rev Pat Robertson) of the story but they were afraid to run with it.

Howard-Browne is originally from South Africa and became a naturalised American citizen several years ago. He believes it is his civic duty to speak out and ask for people to support Trump, especially via prayer.

Howard-Browne told Jones that if he took no action, he would feel obliged to renounce his American citizenship!

If only more Americans felt that way!

On Monday, July 24, Infowars posted an article about the pastor’s conversation with the congressman:

He said there is a plot on Capitol Hill to take the president out, I said you mean by impeachment or by indictment – he said no, to take him out, he will be removed suddenly from office,” said Howard-Browne, before adding, “you can read between the lines”.

Howard-Browne said the congressman used the word ‘immobilised’.

Also:

The Congressman, who the pastor revealed had been in office since 1996, went on to tell Howard-Browne “there’s nothing we can do to stop it.”

Howard-Browne said there is always something we can do to stop it and started a two-week prayer vigil at his church. He said there are people there praying for Trump, day and night.

He urged all Americans to pray for the president from the privacy of their own homes — and to let people know about the attempted coup.

Howard-Browne understands, that, if it occurs, this removal from office, would take place within the next several weeks, no later than September.

Pastor Howard-Browne has informed the appropriate authorities.

Let’s get praying, folks. We are not out of the woods yet. There are more battles to be fought before Trump can settle comfortably into the White House.
