THE SECRET DEAL: Sometimes the only way to strike a deal is to do it without anyone knowing

“ART OF THE DEAL”

State of the Nation

President Donald Trump is a very busy man.  So is Supreme Leader of North Korea Kim Jong-un.

Trump certainly did not fly to Vietnam just to have a sumptuous meal at the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi luxury hotel with his North Korean counterpart.

Neither did Jong-un do the same.

So what really happened there.

Was the summit really a secret success?  Or, did it fall apart as reported by the media?

Hard lessons from the past

Trump has learned that you can’t do a deal that the Council on Foreign Relations frowns upon.

His meetings with President Vladimir Putin proved that he’s unable to conduct a foreign policy independent from the Washington establishment, as especially from the Neocon warhawks who populate his administration at every level.

Therefore, Trump has learned that if you really want to do a deal, you do it face to face with whomever you can trust to (i) keep it secret and (ii) to follows through.

As truly sad that this situation has become for any POTUS, it’s entirely true that Washington establishment will always support the perpetual war economy above all else.

There are now so many warmongering think tanks and brain trusts operating inside the Beltway that it’s clear the Military-Industrial Complex is the country’s most powerful and pervasive lobbying group.

In light of this stark reality, the warmongers have set up the whole game so that war is always around the corner.  No war, or threat of war, no arms industry and all the many related cottage industries.

Most fail to realize just how massive the Military-Industrial Complex (MIC) has become.  Not only that, but the number of corporations within the Fortune 1000 that are dependent on it is truly staggering.

This is a lesson that every POTUS has to learn from day one in the Oval Office: That they really work for the MIC, not the American people.  President John F. Kennedy learned that lesson the hard way; Trump picked it up much more easily.

Ultimately, everyone works for the MIC.

When Trump surrounded himself with so many flag officers, both retired and on active duty, he probably did not realize that each and every one of them really works for the MIC, not the U.S Government.  In fact, most of them go right to work as MIC consultants as soon as they retire.  Others quietly moonlight while on active duty.

All the former corporate CEO/Presidents and other business magnates who President Trump brought into his administration likewise work for the MIC in one way or another.

All of these MIC operators are beholden to the hand that feeds them, first and foremost.  They know they will only have to deal with a President Trump for a term or two; whereas the MIC will likely be around until the end of the world.

With this critical understanding, it ought to be easy to comprehend why Trump needs to do all peacemaking under the radar—way under the radar.  The Washington warmongers can spot a peace treaty or rapprochement or détente a million miles away.

North Korea

Which brings us back to North Korea.

Clearly the only way that Trump could finesse a real deal with North Korea was to do it under cover of darkness.

After all, the mainstream media reporters, intelligence agents, secret service operatives and MIC reps are swarming everywhere at these foreign meet-ups.  Each of them is only there to either gather crucial intel or sabotage the peace process altogether.

The many rogue entities represented really don’t care anymore how they are perceived even if they must intrusively disrupt the process.  The rude and raucous questioning of Kim Jong Un was yet another graphic demonstration of their collective intent to thwart a deal.

This is precisely why Trump dramatically declared: “Sometimes you have to walk”.

When headlines read Biden praises Trump for ‘walking away’ from the North Korea summit with no nuclear deal, you know the pressure Trump was under not to finalize an agreement.  Wow!

These people really don’t want peace and collaboration, and only want war and conflict.  Truly, we are dealing with criminally insane psychopaths who are hopelessly addicted to war and it’s profits.

Hence, Trump’s only way to secure a peace was to fake them all out, which he apparently did.

You gotta admit, Trump is a great showman; and the best at pulling off this type of peacemaking coup.

So, too, did Trump find a good acting partner in Jong-un.  Anyone who watches the streaming from Korea knows that these folks are the best actors in the Asian Pacific Rim.

Just look at these two peacemaking ‘crisis actors’.  They’re the best!

War Profiteers

There’s only one way this deal could go if Trump was to be successful.  The conclusion had to be that “he was walking away from the summit”.  Anything less would have put him on a collision course with the war profiteers.


Trump–Kim Meeting Ends Abruptly—WHY?


Now the challenge will be for the Trump administration to implement whatever agreement was secretly agreed to without detection.

The biggest obstacle will be to evade the scrutiny of the Neocons in the war cabinet.  How Trump pulls that off is anyone’s guess.

Nevertheless, there’s so much else going on across the planet that perhaps the constant distraction will permit the silent truce to hold for the foreseeable future.

Now let’s see how Trump extricates the U.S. Department of State from the unfolding fiasco in Venezuela

Conclusion

Exactly what terms the two leaders came to is anyone’s guess.

However, one thing is certain.

North Korea will no longer behave as it did during previous administrations.

Clearly, a sea change has already occurred on the Korean Peninsula because of the last round of talks between Trump and Jong-un.

As for how the relationship will move forward, both know that any future U.S. administration would likely tear up any formal written agreement on day one.

Therefore, the best approach was to proceed precisely as they did, without anyone but themselves knowing about “THE SECRET DEAL”.

By the looks of this photo, it looks like they really did it.

BIBI Takes the Fall, Indictments Coming for Corruption

Israeli PM Netanyahu to be indicted in corruption cases, pending hearing – Justice Ministry

RT.com

Israel’s Attorney General has indicted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in several corruption cases. The charges include bribery, fraud and breach of trust, and the PM will be given the chance to appeal before they are filed.

Netanuyahu is currently seeking fourth consecutive term as PM, and denies any wrongdoing. His party, Likud, has called the charges “Political persecution.” Netanyahu himself dismissed the cases against him as a “witch hunt” and told reporters that he intends to stay on as PM “for many more years.”

With Israelis set to cast their votes in April, the indictment comes at a crucial time for Netanyahu. Before the charges were announced on Thursday, Israel’s High Court of Justice rejected a petition by Likud to block the announcement. The party’s legal adviser, Avi Halevy, called Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit’s public revelation of the charges “unprecedented interference” in the upcoming election.

Whether the charges will actually be filed or not depends on the outcome of a hearing, which will more than likely take place after the April 9 election.

If the charges are filed, Netanyahu will have to answer to accusations that he took bribes from the controlling shareholder of Bezeq, the country’s largest telecommunications firm. He is also accused of taking gifts from multiple businessmen in exchange for political favors, and of plotting to weaken an opposition-linked newspaper in exchange for more positive coverage from another competing outlet.

Speaking before the indictment was announced, Netanyahu said that the cases against him will “fall like a house of cards.” The Labour Party’s Shelly Yachimovich responded that by fighting personal battles, Netanyahu is “unable to fight for the lives of the citizens of Israel.”

On Twitter, Netanyahu’s supporters railed against the indictment, with lawyer Arsen Osrtovsky calling it “an act of political interference on such scale, that has the potential to truly rupture the very foundations of our society.”

Opponents disagreed, viewing it instead as justice being done. Journalist Yair Rosenberg credited Mandelblit with “holding the country’s most powerful man accountable.”

With the election just over a month away, a Times of Israel poll found Likud trailing the centrist Blue and White political alliance, at 19 percent to 23 percent. Taken before Thursday’s announcement, the poll found that In the event of an indictment, Likud’s support falls to 15 percent, with Blue and White’s rising to 26.

Federal Reserve Scam Only Worsens the National Debt

55% of the US National Debt Is the Result of Repaying Debt with More Debt

by Taps Coogan
The Sounding Line

The last time the US completely paid off the national debt was in 1840. It was the result of decades of balanced budgets under Presidents James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, and Andrew Jackson.

In the 179 years since 1840 (counting the 2018 budget), the US has run a deficit 109 times and a surplus or balanced budget just 70 times, amounting to a cumulative net deficit of $14.2 trillion. All of the surpluses combined in the last 179 years amount to $580 billion, less than the deficit in 2017 alone ($665 billion).

Since the national debt was last eliminated in 1840, the US has paid a cumulative $7.8 trillion of interest on the national debt. This interest includes repaying principal. Simple arithmetic reveals that 55% the $14.2 trillion in deficit spending since 1840 has, in effect, gone towards servicing the national debt. Put differently, instead of paying down its debt with tax revenue, the federal government has essentially rolled over 55% of its debt since 1840 with new debt. The result is that despite running ‘only’ $14.2 trillion in deficits over that last 179 years, and despite having already repaid all debt issued more than 30 years ago, the national debt today is $21.4 trillion. The difference, $7.2 trillion, represents the cumulative interest the US has paid to fund its deficits minus its modest surpluses. As a result, a full 36% of today’s national debt is, in effect, the interest paid on past debt. Only 45% of the national debt went to spending on actual programs. The rest went to servicing the national debt itself and to rolling the debt over with new debt. It also means that the government has been carrying forward the majority of the national debt going all the way back to 1840 by paying it off with new debt. A portion of the money the government borrowed in 1841 is still being paid for today via rolling the debt forward.

Data Source: USGovernmentdebt.us

The last time the national debt decreased on a yearly basis was in 2000 when it fell from $5.7 to $5.6 trillion dollars. Since 2000, the US national debt has nearly quadrupled to $21.2 trillion and the US has spent a cumulative $4.1 trillion dollars on interest expenses, more than during all previous American history combined.

Yet, because so much of the recent growth in the national debt has taken place since the 2008 Financial Crisis, and has been borrowed at historically low interest rates, taxpayers have been shielded from much of its cost. However, if the federal government continues to borrow at the same rate or higher, as it is planning to do, there is a good chance that future borrowing will come at significantly higher interest rates. Consider that the government already spends more servicing the national debt than the combined amount spent on food assistance for the poor plus the departments of: Homeland Security, Housing and Human Development, Energy, Justice, the State Department, NASA, Agriculture, Transportation, the Interior, and the EPA. If debt levels and interest rates rise, even more government spending will be diverted from real programs towards servicing the national debt. It is a total waste of taxpayer money.

Interest Expense versus other federal spending
Data Source: The Balance

Now is the time to balance the federal budget. The economy is expanding, the labor market is relatively strong, the need for large fiscal stimulus is low, and borrowing may get much more expensive in the near future. In the long run, not doing so is simply a massive waste of taxpayer money.

COUP IN VENEZUELA: US Government Attempts to Overthrow Another Democratically Elected President in South America

BREAKING: Trump Team Losers On Venezuela

Robert David Steele
Public Intelligence Blog

Update 27. February 2019: (vf)  The Orinoco Tribune collected the most important points raised by the Venezuelan Minister for Foreign Affairs Arreaza in yesterday’s UN Security Council meeting on the US-instigated crisis targeting Venezuela:

  1. The constitutional president is Nicolas Maduro.
  2. Colombia serves as platform for an aggression against Venezuela.
  3. The US is organizing and leading the aggression against Venezuela.
  4. I salute the intelligence information provided by Cuba and Russia in relation to US Army Special forces mobilization in the Caribbean and about US government and corporations trying to acquire weapons and ammunition in Easter European countries to arm the extremist right wing opposition in Venezuela
  5. This weekend a very well organized operation was carried out on the border with Colombia to violate the sacred sovereignty of Venezuela and our law enforcement was able to contain it without using extreme force. They use the “gradual and proportionate use of force” protocol to address each aggression.
  6. Colombians and Venezuelans attacked our law enforcement officers with the complicity of the Colombian Police.
  7. The trucks with the supposed humanitarian aid that were burned caught fire because of the attack from the Colombian side with Molotov cocktails they were throwing at the Venezuelan National Guard.
  8. A False Flag operation occurred when supposed humanitarian aid personal used the Red Cross insignia without permission and that was denounced by the Red Cross itself.
  9. I said to Mr. Abrams and repeat it here: The coup failed. Read my lips: It failed.
  10. We have to solve our differences and we are willing to negotiate with the opposition. We embrace the Montevideo Mechanism. Just tell us where to meet, and we will go there with our Constitution in hand. Even elections are on the table but that should be something agreed to at a negotiation table and not a precondition for negotiations.
  11. Federica Mogherini, the Head of the EU Foreign Affair, defined the US Aid strategy as not really filling into the legal concept of humanitarian aid.
  12. The Security Council’s obligation is not to promote war but to prevent wars.
  13. We along with the Russian delegation are proposing the adoption of a resolution AT LEAST rejecting the use of force. It also should reject the looting of assets and resources by the US and England that total 18 billion dollars since august 2018 and we are not counting the seizure of CITGO valued in billions of dollars, but we know that might be asking too much.
  14. We have seen the results of US military intervention in other countries and we can not understand how Juan Guaido himself presents the US military invasion option as an alternative when all of us know that the bombs do not differentiate between chavista and opposition people or between rich and poor. We have seen it in Iraq, Libya and Syria…wherever the US go they leave a real humanitarian crisis.
  15. We are investigating the event in the border with Brazil. That was another setup operation. A group of armed opposition criminals tried to assault a post of the National Guard. The details are not clear but we are investigating.
  16. This situation is also a result of the internal politics inside of the US.
  17. Venezuela was attacked and some speakers from the UN pretend to portray us as the aggressor. Our law enforcement agents are admirable because they could contain the aggression without human losses besides the situation in Santa Elena de Uairen.
  18. Trump has stated that if the latino migrants reach the US border they will shoot at them. But here (in the UN) no one says anything. There is too much hypocrisy. We will love to have Venezuela out of the internal political debate. To gain votes in Florida the Trump administration uses Venezuela in order to prepare the terrain for the electoral race of 2020.
  19. Our law enforcement officers were attacked and injured but you do not raise that fact here, because we the chavistas are invisible, like the almost 10 million Venezuelans that went to vote last May the 20 when president Maduro was elected.
  20. The coup d’etat has failed and even the idea of military intervention has raised questions among the Lima Group governments after the US and Juan Guaido presented it in their meeting yesterday. We want to address this issue of the threat of use of force against Venezuela with the High Commissioner for Human Right Michele Bachelet and we expect to have a meeting with her soon.
  21. We are willing to negotiate and all the opposition factors reject the idea of going to a negotiation table. Why is there not a call from this Security Council to promote the negotiation option within the opposition factions in Venezuela?
  22. They say we use the negotiations to gain time but the true is that last 2018 we reach an agreement with the opposition in the Dominican Republic and at the last moment the opposition kicked the table and dropped all that was achieved in months of work.
  23. We have created this group in the UN with 60 countries in order to defend the principles of the UN and the Un-aligned Countries. This group is not for defending Venezuela but to defend the rule of law and prevent situations like the one being discuss today from happening again.
  24. He cited the Report from the German Bundestag (Legal Commission) that states that what happens in Venezuela is an intervention in internal affairs and also the early recognition of such illegitimate government (like the Guaido’s one) could create the bases for international legal responsibility for the states that commit the mistake of an early recognition.
  25. He refereed also to the fact that even the ilegal argument used by the US to justify Guaido’s Coup, Article 233 which is an absurdity, if some take that as a real legal base, Guaido should have call for elections 30 days after the article 233 was activated and that has not happen. They also created a legal nonsense called the Transition Act and are using that to excuse themselves for not following the Constitution and keep Guaido as Interim President for as long as they want, violating every letter of our Constitution.
  26. So in this surreal circumstance we have Juan Guaido that is chief of the Legislative Branch, Chief of the Executive Branch and Chief of the Judicial branch and no one calls him a Dictator (outside Venezuela). It is like being in Narnia.
  27. I am indignant for this circus, because i love my country, my people and we love peace and you can only get indignant when you see so many statements here in the UN without any legal basis and you wonder yourself how in the House of the Multilateralism is it not possible to prevent the rule of the Unilateralism and the dictatorship the US wants to impose all over the word.
  28. I gifted a book to Elliot Abrams called Free Peoples Defeat Powerful Empires (Pueblos Libres derrotan a Imperios Poderosos). You can download it here (Spanish). And I want -to finish- to cite a phrase of Tomas Jefferson where he mentioned the US objective of taking control of the south american colonies one by one years before the Monroe Doctrine (“Our confederacy must be viewed as the nest from which all America, North and South is to be peopled”).

Tip of the Hat to Lipstick and War Crimes.

ROBERT STEELE: The attempted regime change in Venezuela, the sanctions against Cuba, the planned war against Iran based on lies, are all shaming the United States of America.  Mike Pompeo is a disgrace as Secretary of State. This baloney — this Zionist Deep State neocon baloney — has got to stop. The President is losing his base by failing on the home front and abdicating his common sense on the foreign front.  ENOUGH, ALREADY.

Serious people with serious money are discussing Plan B.  Michael Cohen’s testimony today is coming across as AUTHENTIC.  If the President does not get his stuff together in  the next 30 days, he will be at risk of losing in 2020.

Execute the ideas in Memorandum for the President: Trump Triumph and embrace the below national security strategy so as to focus on the home front.

William Barr and the Iran-Contra Scandal

CIA Covert Operative William Barr Nominated by Trump for Attorney General. His Role in the Iran Contra Affair

By Larry Chin
Global Research

UPDATE

This article was originally published on December 12, 2018. The serious questions raised in the piece remain completely unanswered.

Why was Barr chosen, given his shocking and deeply criminal/cover-up kingpin background?

Was Trump duped by Deep State enemies, who have placed another predator into his administration with the power to destroy his presidency? Or has Trump co-opted and turned Barr, in the hopes that Barr will do Trump’s bidding? Why would Barr ever turn against his own Deep State cronies?

Does Trump have a plan? With Barr in place, is Trump signaling to his enemies that “I now own the Deep State”? Or is Barr the Deep State’s ultimate and final weapon against Trump, who remains surrounded by Bush/Clinton “swamp creatures” such as National Security Adviser John Bolton, who is one of Barr’s many fellow Iran-Contra co-conspiratorsVice President Mike Pence (who is in ideal position for a coup against Trump, and remains very cozy with the Clintons, dozens of Obama appointees that remain in place, and Republican “Never Trumpers”, all of whom continue to undermine Trump.

Pay careful attention to the confirmation “hearings”. How many of the senators “questioning” Barr are themselves connected to the Bush/Clinton era criminal operations that Barr supervised as George H.W. Bush’s attorney general?

Will anyone in Washington, or in the CIA asset-filled mainstream media, dare bring up Iran-Contra? Will anyone dare detail Barr’s corruption, and his longstanding ties to the Bush/Clinton network? What about the fact that Barr is best friends with Robert Mueller?

Even the alternative media, including the whistleblowing research-intensive pro-Trump anon community, has been virtually silent on Barr, despite the fact that his criminal history is glaringly obvious, lurid, and begging to be exposed.

Rumors abound that slippery Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is expected to leave the Justice Department following Barr’s likely confirmation. This further clears the way for Barr to seize the power to determine the fate of the Mueller probe, the John Huber (Inspector General) report, FISAgate, Clinton emails, Uranium One, and other key investigations.

William Barr could well determine the course of the political war between President Donald Trump and his enemies, and decide  the fate of Donald Trump’s presidency itself.

Larry Chin, January 14, 2019

***

Should William Barr serve as the highest law enforcement official of the country?

For a presidential administration whose mandate was the eradication of corruption, the “draining of the swamp”, and the restoration of law?

With the nomination of William Barr for attorney general, that is what President Donald Trump wants American citizens and the world to accept.

Fawning mainstream media coverageand streams of puff pieces laud Barr as a “respected” establishment “legal scholar”, as do Donald Trump’s Twitter posts about Barr.

The fact is, there is nothing to “respect” and everything to condemn about Barr’s work as a key inner circle operative throughout George Herbert Walker Bush’s rise to power, from CIA Director to Vice President to President. These aspects of Barr’s resume remain whitewashed by mainstream coverage. They have been amply documented by whistleblowers and those who worked directly with Barr.

The issue at hand is not Barr’s “legal mind”, but the ruthless mind that he wielded with frightening authority and expertise as George H. W. Bush’s treasonous hatchet man in the Justice Department. William Barr distorted and corrupted the law, as grossly as anyone in modern history.

Barr: CIA operative 

It is a sobering fact that American presidents (many of whom have been corrupt) have gone out of their way to hire fixers to be their attorney generals.

Consider recent history: Loretta Lynch (2015-2017), Eric Holder (2009-2015), Michael Mukasey (2007-2009), Alberto Gonzales (2005-2007), John Ashcroft (2001-2005),Janet Reno (1993-2001), Dick Thornburgh (1988-1991), Ed Meese (1985-1988), etc.

Barr, however, is a particularly spectacular and sordid case. As George H.W. Bush’s most notorious insider, and as the AG from 1991 to 1993, Barr wreaked havoc, flaunted the rule of law, and proved himself to be one of the CIA/Deep State’s greatest and most ruthless champions and protectors:

  • Barr was a full-time CIA operative, recruited by Langley out of high school, starting in 1971. Barr’s youth career goal was to head the CIA.
  • CIA operative assigned to the China directorate, where he became close to powerful CIA operative George H.W. Bush, whose accomplishments already included the CIA/Cuba Bay of Pigs, Asia CIA operations (Vietnam War, Golden Triangle narcotics), Nixon foreign policy (Henry Kissinger), and the Watergate operation.
  • When George H.W. Bush became CIA Director in 1976, Barr joined the CIA’s “legal office” and Bush’s inner circle, and worked alongside Bush’s longtime CIA enforcers Theodore “Ted” Shackley, Felix Rodriguez, Thomas Clines, and others, several of whom were likely involved with the Bay of Pigs/John F. Kennedy assassination, and numerous southeast Asian operations, from the Phoenix Program to Golden Triangle narco-trafficking.
  • Barr stonewalled and destroyed the Church Committee investigations into CIA abuses.
  • Barr stonewalled and stopped inquiries in the CIA bombing assassination of Chilean opposition leader Orlando Letelier.
  • Barr joined George H.W. Bush’s legal/intelligence team during Bush’s vice presidency (under President Ronald Reagan) Rose from assistant attorney general to Chief Legal Counsel to attorney general (1991) during the Bush 41 presidency.
  • Barr was a key player in the Iran-Contra operation, if not the most important member of the apparatus, simultaneously managing the operation while also “fixing” the legal end, ensuring that all of the operatives could do their jobs without fear of exposure or arrest.
  • In his attorney general confirmation, Barr vowed to “attack criminal organizations”, drug smugglers and money launderers. It was all hot air: as AG, Barr would preserve, protect, cover up, and nurture the apparatus that he helped create, and use Justice Department power to escape punishment.
  • Barr stonewalled and stopped investigations into all Bush/Clinton and CIA crimes, including BCCI and BNL CIA drug banking, the theft of Inslaw/PROMIS software, and all crimes of state committed by Bush
  • Barr provided legal cover for Bush’s illegal foreign policy and war crimes
  • Barr left Washington, and went through the “rotating door” to the corporate world, where he took on numerous directorships and counsel positions for major companies. In 2007 and again from 2017, Barr was counsel for politically-connected international law firm Kirkland & Ellis. Among its other notable attorneys and alumni are Kenneth Starr, John Bolton, Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and numerous Trump administration attorneys. K&E’s clients include sex trafficker/pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, and Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital.

A strong case can be made that William Barr was as powerful and important a figure in the Bush apparatus as any other, besides Poppy Bush himself.

Iran-Contra

To understand the scope, scale, and gravity of William Barr’s central role working for  George H.W. Bush, one must grasp the significance of Iran-Contra, the massive criminal operation that was the cornerstone of the Bush era, headed by the Bushes, with the Clintons as partners.

As previously written:

Originally coined “Iran-Contra” (in reference to illegal arms sales to Iran in exchange for American hostages in Lebanon and arms to the Contra “freedom fighters” in Nicaragua), the moniker hides the fact that it became a massive and permanent criminal business and political machine that went far beyond then-current political concerns.

In The Conspirators: Secrets of an Iran-Contra Insider, Al Martin describes the Iran-Contra Enterprise that a vast operation that included (and was not limited to) drugs, weapons, terrorism, war, money laundering, criminal banking and securities fraud, currency fraud, real estate fraud, insurance fraud, blackmail, extortion, and political corruption that involved countless Washington politicians of both Republican and Democratic parties.

Martin:

“Iran-Contra itself is a euphemism for the outrageous fraud perpetrated by government criminals for profit and control. Offhandedly, this inaccurate term entered history as shorthand for the public scandals of illicit arms sales to Iran coupled with illicit weapons deals for Nicaragua. The real story, however, is much more complex…When George Bush, [CIA Director] Bill Casey and Oliver North initiated their plan of government-sanctioned fraud and drug smuggling, they envisioned using 500 men to raise $35 billion….they ended up using about 5,000 operatives and making over $35 billion.” In addition, the operation became  “a government within a government, comprising some thirty to forty thousand people the American government turns to, when it wishes certain illegal covert operations to be extant pursuant to a political objective” with George [H.W.] Bush “at the top of the pyramid”.

The operation’s insiders and whistleblowers place George H.W.Bush as one of its top architects, and its commander. It was carried out by CIA operatives close to Bush since his CIA directorship and even stretching back to the Bay of Pigs. These included Oliver North, Ted Shackley, Edwin Wilson, Felix Rodriguez, and others. Iran-Contra was a replication of the CIA’s Golden Triangle drug trafficking in Southeast Asia (operations also connected to Bush) but on a larger scale and sophistication, greater complexity, and far-reaching impact that remains palpable to this day.

In George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography, Webster Tarpley wrote that, “many once-classified documents have come to light, which suggest that Bush organized and supervised many, or most, of the criminal aspects of the Iran-Contra adventures.”

Tarpley further points out that George H.W. Bush created new structures (“special situation group”, “terror incident working group” etc.) within the Reagan administration—and that

“all of these structures revolved around [creating] the secret command role of the then-Vice President, George Bush…The Bush apparatus, within and behind the government, was formed to carry out covert policies: to make war when the constitutional government had decided not to make war; to support enemies of the nation (terrorists and drug runners) who are the friends and agents of the secret government.”

This suggests that George H.W.Bush not only ran Iran-Contra, but much of the Reagan presidency. Then-White House press secretary James Baker said in 1981,

“Bush is functioning much like a co-president. George is involved in all the national security stuff because of his special background as CIA director. All the budget working groups, he was there, the economic working groups, the Cabinet meetings. He is included in almost all the meetings.”

Hundreds of insiders, witnesses and investigators have blown the lid off of the Iran-Contra Enterprise in exhaustive fashion. These include the investigations of Mike Ruppert (From The WildernessCrossing the Rubicon), Al Martin (The Conspirators: Secrets of an Iran-Contra Insider), Gary Webb (Dark Alliance), Rodney Stich (Defrauding AmericaDrugging America), Terry Reed (Compromised: Clinton, Bush and the CIA), Stew Webb (and here), Dois “Chip” Tatum (The Tatum Chronicles) (summarized here), Pete Brewton (The Mafia, the CIA and George Bush), among others. The accounts of Barry Seal, Edward Cutolo, Albert Carone, Bradley Ayers, Tosh Plumley, Bill Tyree, Gunther Russbacher, Celerino Castillo, Michael Levine, Trenton Parker, Russell Bowen, Richard Brenneke, Larry Nichols, William Duncan, Russell Welch and dozens more implicate the Bushes, the Clintons and the CIA.

As described by Mike Ruppert (image left):

“It stood, and still stands today, isolated and immune from the operating principles of democracy. It is autonomous and it operates through self-funding via narcotics and weapons trafficking. To quote [former CIA director] William Casey it is ‘a completely self-funding, off-the-shelf operation.’ It, in fact, dictates a substantial portion of this country’s foreign, economic and military policy from a place not accessible to the will of a free people properly armed with facts.”

CIA deep cover agent pilot Chip Tatum, a key Iran-Contra player who flew drugs into Mena and Little Rock in Arkansas, worked alongside CIA pilot and drug smuggler Barry Seal. It is believed that Seal was subsequently murdered by the Medellin Cartel, on order of Oliver North and the Bushes, to prevent him from testifying about his activities. Before he was killed, Seal provided Tatum a list of Iran-Contra “Boss Hogs” who allegedly controlled the drug trade. The Pegasus File summaries Tatum’s activities, and features the “Boss Hog” list.

The Iran-Contra apparatus was byzantine, comprised of a network of connected government agencies, subsidiaries, and shell companies and corporations can be seen in the diagram provided by whistleblower Stew Webb:

Bush Crime Family Flow Chart

Progressive Review (1998)

Why is Iran-Contra still relevant today?

The Iran-Contra Enterprise’s overseers, criminal associates and beneficiaries, to this day, remain at large [including Barr], with most enjoying massive illegally-obtained wealth, privilege, and highest political and corporate positions. The imperial positions of the Bush and Clinton clans exemplify this.

The operation, in essence, evolved and metastasized into ever-more modern and sophisticated incarnation with even more global reach. New names, new banks, new drugs, new wars, same blueprint.  It is not a “deep state” or a “shadow state” but a Criminal State that operates “in broad daylight”.  It is the playbook of the New World Order.  It is globalization at its finest.

All attempts to prosecute were largely unsuccessful—blocked, stalled, or given a “limited hangout” treatment. As written by Ruppert, one of many Iran-Contra whistleblowers, in Crossing the Rubicon:

“[In Congress] Iran-Contra was effectively ‘managed’ by Lee Hamilton in the House [of Representatives] and John Kerry (among others) in the Senate throughout the late 1980s to conceal the greatest crimes of the era, crimes committed by a litany of well-known government operatives.”

Which brings us to this:

Iran-Contra was also managed on both the operational and all-important judicial “legal” end by none other than William Barr.

Barr: Iran-Contra insider alias “Robert Johnson”

In his books Drugging America: A Trojan Horse and Defrauding America: Dirty Secrets of the CIA and other Government Operations, whistleblower Rodney Stich exposed in exhaustive detail the firsthand accounts of whistleblowers and insiders, who participated in the many criminal operations that stretched across the Bush and Clinton presidencies.

Some of the shocking evidence exposes Barr acting simultaneously as a hands-on covert operative, and as Bush’s judicial/political fixer:

In Drugging America, Stich wrote:

[CIA operative] Terry Reed had been in frequent telephone contact with the man he knew as Robert Johnson. Johnson directed the drug trafficking and drug money laundering, the training in Arkansas of Contra pilots and fighters, and authorized Reed to set up the CIA proprietary in Mexico. At a later date, Reed learned that Robert Johnson was really William Barr, appointed by President George Bush to be Attorney General of the United States.

Reed’s CIA contact, William Barr, known at that time by his alias Robert Johnson, told Reed that Attorney General Edwin Meese had appointed Michael Fitzhugh to be US Attorney in Western Arkansas, and that he would stonewall any investigation into the Mena, Arkansas drug-related activities. This obstruction of justice by Justice Department officials did occur.

William Barr, who Bush appointed to be the top law enforcement officer in the United States—US Attorney General—played a key role in the smuggling of drugs into the United States. [CIA pilot Chip] Tatum’s statements about reaching Barr at Southern Air Transport in Miami through the name of Robert Johnson confirmed what [CIA operative] Terry Reed, author of the book Compromised, had told me and had written. Nothing like having members of felony drug operations hold the position of US Attorney General—in control of the United States Department of Justice—and a vice president of the United States [Bush]. With this type of influence, no one needs fear being arrested. And don’t forget the Mafia groups working with the CIA who also receive Justice Department protection that is not available to US citizens.  

According to Stich, Tatum also detailed to him meetings that took place in which he was present for meetings and telephone conversations between Bush, [NSC Colonel] Oliver North and Barr, discussing not only operations but the skimming of drug money by the Clintons.

The purpose of the meeting was to determine who was responsible for stealing over $100 million in drug money on the three routes from Panama to Colorado, Ohio, and Arkansas. This theft was draining the operation known as the “Enterprise”…The first call was made by [CIA agent Joseph] Fernandez to Oliver North, informing North that the theft was occurring on the Panama to Arkansas route, and “that means either [CIA pilot Barry] Seal, Clinton, or [Panamanian General Manuel] Noriega”…Fifteen minutes later, the portable phone rang, and Vice President George Bush was on the line, talking to William Barr. Barr said at one point, referring to the missing funds, “I would propose that no one source would be bold enough to siphon out that much money, but it is more plausible that each are siphoning a portion, causing a drastic loss.”..Barr told Bush that he and Fernandez were staying in Costa Rica until the following day after first visiting [CIA operative] John Hull’s ranch. Barr then handed the phone to Tatum, who was instructed by Bush to be sure that Noriega and [Mossad operative Michael] Harari boarded Seal’s plane and departed, and for Tatum to get the tail number of Seal’s plane….Tatum said that Barr dialed another number, immediately reaching then-governor Bill Clinton. Barr explained the missing money problem to Clinton…Barr suggested that Clinton investigate at the Arkansas end of the Panama to Arkansas route, and that he and North would continue investigating the Panama end of the connection, warning that the matter must be resolved or it could lead to “big problems”…(This description of missing drug money provided support to a subsequent meeting in Little Rock, described by Terry Reed, during which William Barr accused Clinton of siphoning drug money and that this had to stop.)

Tatum also described to Stich a March 15, 1985 flight, during which “Tatum met with Barr, Harari, and Buddy Young (head of Governor Bill Clinton’s security detail). Barr represented himself as an emissary of Vice President George Bush, who would be arriving soon. Tatum would note on his flight book “Bush visit/meet with Barr and had dinner at German restaurant”.

The fact is, William Barr was  heavily involved in the Iran-Contra.

Cover-up of BCCI and BNL scandals

As attorney general, obviously still working for CIA/Bush purposes, Barr and Richard Thornburgh (George H.W. Bush’s previous attorney general) killed off investigations into BCCI, the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, the notorious CIA drug bank. Barr also stonewalled investigations in the Banca Nationale del Lavoro (BNL), another CIA drug bank.

BCCI was a leading CIA bank used by the Bush/Clinton machine for a vast array of operations, including Iran-Contra drug money laundering.

Barr himself had a personal relationship with BCCI going back to the early 1980s.

William Barr is heading the drive in Virginia to turn prisons into slave labor camps. Here he is shown during a hearing at the Senate Judiciary Committee, Nov. 12, 1991, on his nomination as Attorney General in the Bush administration. Left to right: Sen. Strom Thurmond, Sen. Joseph Biden, Barr, Sen. Patrick Leahy. (Source: EIR)

According to Rodney Stich,

“before William Barr came to the Justice Department, he was an attorney with the Washington law firm of Shaw Pittman Potts & Trowbridge. This law firm represented BCCI for several years…Barr’s former law firm also represented B. Francis Saul II, a director and powerful shareholder in Financial General Bankshares, Inc. Financial later became First American Bankshares, a covert BCCI operation…Further, Barr had been legal counsel for the CIA, the same agency that was heavily involved with BCCI corrupt activities. He was CIA counsel during the time that George Bush was Director of the CIA.”

When both the CIA and the Justice Department connections and cover-up of BCCI were exposed by the dogged investigations of Congressman Henry Gonzalez, then-FBI Director William Sessions [note: not related to recent Trump attorney general Jeff Sessions] promised an investigation. This prompted Attorney General Barr, who himself was engaged in the cover-up and the obstruction of justice, to remove Sessions on trumped-up ethics charges, replacing him with someone more malleable.

Also, as part of the BCCI “negotiation” as well as to maintain control over the Iran-Contra drug operations, Barr allegedly also crafted a legal justification for then-President Bush to invade Panama and kidnap their associate General Manuel Noriega, in order to imprison and silence him before he could expose the operation.

Cover-up of Inslaw and PROMIS software theft

Barr stonewalled investigations and assisted the cover-up of the theft of Inslaw, and PROMIS software by the Department of Justice and the CIA. The otherworldly power of PROMIS software was and still is so coveted that extreme criminal measures have been get it.

Inslaw

PROMIS (Mike Ruppert, From the Wilderness publications)

PROMIS part 2 (Mike Ruppert, From The Wilderness publications)

The Undying Octopus: the FBI and the PROMIS affair

NSA surveillance: PROMIS

According to Rodney Stich in Defrauding America,

“by misusing the power of their office…three US attorney generals in the Reagan-Bush administrations, Edwin Meese, Richard Thornburgh, and William Barr misappropriated, or aided and abetted, the theft of the software called PROMIS.”

When the scandal became too noisy, Barr

“appointed a former Justice Department crony to conduct an “investigation” of the Inslaw matter, and then report back to him. The special counsel would be selected by Barr; would be subservient to him; and would report to him. Barr could then ignore the recommendations if, in the remote possibility the special counsel did not cooperate in the expected cover-up.”

The Iran-Contra pardons

In the most brazen insult to the American people and the entire world, Barr facilitated George H.W. Bush’s infamous 1992 Christmas Eve pardons of six Iran-Contra co-conspirators Caspar Weinberger, Elliott Abrams, Robert McFarlane, Dewey Clarridge, Alan Fiers, Clair George,

With the stroke of a pen, Bush gleefully set free six of his Iran-Contra criminal flunkies, and effectively decapitating Special Prosecutor Lawrence Walsh’s six-year long Iran-Contra probe.

It was Barr who closed the lid on Iran-Contra, freeing virtually the entire Bush/Clinton network, including himself, from punishment.

It was Barr who, with this move, “saved their asses”.

The New World Order could not have asked for a better henchman, fixer, and spook than William Barr.

Trump’s nomination of Barr: insanity or “part of the plan”?

Trump won the presidency in 2016 on the power of the single mandate to “drain the swamp”, and Destroy the Deep State. A vicious global struggle continues to be waged on every front between populist reformers led by Trump and the Deep State/New World Order. This war is taking place in every nation and on every continent. The stakes are deadly. Time is running short.

The Justice Department has been ground zero in this war. Jeff Sessions’ tenure as attorney general was opaque and riddled with uncertainties. His interim replacement, Matthew Whittaker, is true Trump loyalist who has the unenviable task of taking immediate action on FISAgate and other investigations into Obama/Clinton administration spying/treason, ending the Robert Mueller’s manufactured anti-Trump “Russian Collusion” witch hunt hoax, and do it all before January 2019, when a new Congress full of emboldened Democrats (who will come into office via rampant mid-term election fraud) pursue new avenues to further attack Trump. Numerous critical and potentially explosive congressional testimonies, including investigations into the Clinton Foundation, are all scheduled to take place before January, which could well decide the course of Trump’s presidency, and the movement behind him.

Why is William Barr—the antithesis of a “patriot” and the swampiest of swamp monsters— now being inserted into the middle of what is supposed to be a “white hat” anti-corruption operation? The move is baffling.

Why did Trump make the pick—the sole pick—so immediately, seemingly without thorough vetting?

Who recommended Barr for the job? The “white hats”, or the “black hats” that have never stopped planting assassins into Trump’s inner circle?

Is it significant or coincidental that the Barr pick came shortly after the death of George H.W. Bush?

Does Trump, who made the pick but claims that he “does not know” Barr (do we believe this?) realize that Barr—“Robert Johnson”—is the Deep State swamp’s most loyal operators and protectors? And that Barr is deeply connected and loyal to everyone and everything that Trump opposes?

What role could Trump possibly envision for Barr? Will Barr go after Bill and Hillary Clinton? Jeb and George W. Bush, with whom Barr managed numerous Iran-Contra operations? Will he go after Robert Mueller and James Comey, and dozens of members of Congress, who were also deeply connected to the “Enterprise”?

Why would Barr go against everything he helped create and everything he stood for? Why would he undo his own criminal handiwork by prosecuting his own lifelong criminal colleagues and friends? Barr’s career has been about saving the Deep State and the New World Order that he helped make invincible. Why would he do any differently now?

For reasons known only to him, Trump has surrounded himself with bad actors, too many to count. Mike Pence (longtime Bush loyalist), John Bolton, H.R. McMaster, etc. etc. Trump’s cabinet has been in constant flux, with many shakeups underway. But William Barr is an entirely different level of criminal. What next? Will Trump invite Dick Cheney to his administration? Bring back Henry Kissinger?

Is Trump being a genius, or is he a dupe and/or a sell-out?

Have Trump and his forces “turned” or leveraged Barr? Is it even possible to control someone like him? “Once CIA, always CIA.”

Imagine the spectacle of the pending “confirmation hearings”. Will any member of this corrupt Congress grill Barr about Iran-Contra or BCCI? Will anyone stand up and ask “Robert Johnson” to tell the truth?  Or will Barr look across at a room full of frightened politicians (many of whom he knows too well) and chortle, knowing that no one in the chamber will dare.

Is this the “draining of the swamp”, or is Barr the swamp’s ultimate victory, and the end of Trump?

Of limited hangouts and deceptions

In recent interviews, Barr issued noises that seemed supportive of Trump. Barr obviously caught the Trump team’s attention based on these comments. (Humorously, the CIA-managed corporate mainstream media has labeled Barr, an actual CIA criminal conspirator, a “conspiracy theorist”for his statements.)

While the mainstream media has latched on to quotes in which Barr said that he supports “some” investigations into the Clintons, he also insists that “throwing Hillary Clinton in jail is inappropriate”.

In other words, Barr does not want the swamp to be drained. In other words, Barr only supports limited investigations and limited hangouts.

Barr should be disqualified for the job simply based on this.

Or does the nomination of Barr suggest that President Trump also does not want to fully “drain the swamp”? Is his goal to merely co-opt the New World Order co-opt the New World Order and co-opt the Bush Republican apparatus, in order to take down the Clinton/Obama side of it, while leaving the Bush side intact?

Given that Bush-Clinton/Obama are two sides of the same coin, it is ridiculous and impossible to “go after” one side without “going after” the other, and then claim that any real swamp draining is taking place.

It is also possible that Barr and/or his Bush/CIA colleagues have baited the Trump team with his statements, in order to place him in Trump’s administration as a Trojan Horse.

Muted reaction  

It is too much to expect the masses, remain uninformed and controlled by propaganda, to understand the significance and danger posed by the reappearance of Barr.

The few who seem aware of Barr’s background are alarmedfor good reason. But even the more informed observers aren’t getting it. Most of those who “trust Trump” and “trust the plan” have not aggressively questioned the move. Even the research-intensive Internet Anoncommunity has been quiet about Barr.

Some Trump optimists are stretching, trying to convince themselves that Trump is using the Barr nomination to “troll”, and to point attention back to the Bush history, thus forcing the public to research, recoil and awaken to the truth.

They would like to believe that Trump is continuing to play a game of deception. The “4-D chess player”, is merely “keeping enemies close”; manipulating, co-opting, and leveraging compromised figures to his personal bidding; and turn one of the Deep State’s own into a weapon against the Deep State. Perhaps they believe that Trump is purposely elevating Barr, in order to fire him later, as he has already done with numerous others in his administration.

Some argue that Barr is useful because he “knows where the bodies are buried”. Barr himself helped bury them—literally in many cases.

If Trump thinks that he can control or leverage someone as dangerous as Barr, then Trump is taking the biggest risk of his presidency, and of his life.

He is also placing the country and the world at risk.

All in the crime family

The atrocities and crimes of the Bushes and Clintons are unspeakable and unimaginable in depravity and scale.

These atrocities were facilitated by William “Robert Johnson” Barr.

Barr, a hands-on participant, is guilty. Furthermore, he poisoned and manipulated the judicial system—“law enforcement”— to get himself and his friends off the hook.

Barr must be exposed and condemned, along with the entire Bush/Clinton/Obama network, and all must be denied and removed from all positions of influence and power.

In an unguarded moment in 1992, George H.W. Bush said to reporter Sarah McClendon:

“If people ever knew what we had done, we would be chased down the street and lynched.”

FDA Wants Mandatory Vaccines and Federal Enforcement

FDA Boss to States: Eliminate Vaccine Exemptions, or Else

Written by Alex Newman
New American

Unable to convince Americans to fully trust vaccines with endless marketing propaganda and even government mandates, Food and Drug Administration boss Scott Gottlieb (shown) is now threatening to use federal force. Indeed, in bizarre comments made to national media, the senior health bureaucrat threatened that growing nationwide resistance to vaccination mandates may “force the hand of the federal government.” In short, Gottlieb wants to force states to vaccinate children, even if it goes against the religion or conscience of the parents. Critics lambasted the comments and the sentiments as authoritarian and unacceptable.

One obvious problem with Gottlieb’s threats is that the federal government has no power to mandate vaccines or tell states what to do on the issue. In fact, according to the U.S. Constitution’s 10th Amendment, all powers not delegated to the federal government are retained by the states or the people. Of course, vaccine mandates are not listed as a federal power; therefore, as the Supreme Court has recognized, this is a state issue. Another problem for Gottlieb’s agenda is that his own boss, President Donald Trump, has repeatedly suggested that vaccines may not be as safe and effective as Big Pharma and its government cronies want people to think they are.

But none of that appears to have fazed the federal government’s top “food and drug” bureaucrat. Speaking to CNN, a media outlet described by Gottlieb’s boss Trump as “very fake news,” the FDA commissioner tried to make his case for federal intervention. “Some states are engaging in such wide exemptions that they’re creating the opportunity for outbreaks on a scale that is going to have national implications,” he claimed this week, adding that if “states continue down the path that they’re on, I think they’re going to force the hand of the federal health agencies.”

No specifics were provided, with Gottlieb saying only, “You could mandate certain rules about what is and isn’t permissible when it comes to allowing people to have exemptions.” Right now, only three states do not allow non-medical exemptions. But Gottlieb said he is “deeply skeptical” of those exemptions.

Before that, Gottlieb made similar comments to Axios last week, exploiting a handful of measles cases — many of them in vaccinated children, ironically — to push vaccination of children by fiat. “It’s an avoidable tragedy,” Gottlieb told the online news service about measles cases, adding that he is normally a proponent of states rights but not when it comes to informed consent on vaccines. “Too many states have lax laws.” Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), has been making similar noise on the issue.

By contrast, on the campaign trail, their boss sounded a drastically different tune. For instance, Trump openly and repeatedly suggested that vaccines may cause autism, highlighting the growing “epidemic” that he and many other prominent voices have linked to vaccinations. Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist at CDC, became a whistleblower after discovering that the CDC was omitting important data linking vaccines to autism. “We lied about the scientific findings,” he explained. “The CDC can no longer be trusted to do vaccine safety work.” Seizing on those concerns, among other problems with mandatory vaccination, Trump called for families to have “discretion” in decisions about whether and when to give their children vaccines. Other 2016 GOP presidential candidates agreed.

But Gottlieb’s comments come amid a broader global war on informed consent, religious freedom, and parental rights in vaccination. Citing the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO), which is run by a known communist, the New York Times published a totalitarian screed last month calling for state and federal authorities to crack down on vaccine skeptics. In the editorial, headlined “How to Inoculate Against Anti-Vaxxers,” Times called on states to emulate California, where Big Pharma-funded lawmakers eliminated personal-belief exemptions in 2015. The paper also said that “the federal government should consider tightening restrictions around how much leeway states can grant families that want to skip essential vaccines.”

Interestingly, the UN WHO, which has been caught on multiple occasions using vaccines laced with sterilizing agents in Africa and Latin America, called on governments to punish those who refuse to accept vaccines. The UN body also urged healthcare workers to lie to patients, specifically instructing them to tell concerned parents vaccines cannot cause harmful side effects, illness, and even death. In reality, the package inserts for vaccines all admit that they can cause injury or death. Even the federal government acknowledges this when it forces taxpayers — not Big Pharma — to accept the liability for injuries and deaths caused by vaccines. Billions have been paid out to victims of vaccine injuries and families of those who have died.

But critics are fighting back. President Barbara Loe Fisher of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), which opposes vaccination mandates, slammed the exploitation of a few measles cases to push draconian policies. “It is highly inappropriate for federal officials, particularly the commissioner of the FDA who is legally responsible for regulating vaccines, to threaten state legislators with federal action if they do not tighten exemption laws,” she told The New American in a phone interview, adding that vaccine laws have always been a state issue dating back to a 1905 Supreme Court case. “It is our position that the federal government should not be interfering in what is clearly a state issue.” To make their point, the group put up a giant ad in Times Squaredemanding health freedom and urging people to research the risks associated with vaccines.

Also of great concern, she said, is that the vaccine industry is completely immune from liability when its products cause injuries and death. Instead, thanks to intense lobbying by Big Pharma, American taxpayers end up compensating victims of vaccines, a subsidy that is unique and unprecedented among any industry. “This makes personal-belief exemptions very, very important in vaccine laws,” Fisher noted. “This is an informed consent issue. And informed consent has been defined as a human right since after WWII. This is also a first amendment issue — freedom of religion and freedom of conscience are at stake. For federal officials to be rattling their swords and threatening state legislators is not appropriate — it is interfering with states rights.”

Noting that there have been just over 120 measles cases so far this year out of a population of 320 million, the NVIC chief said this was not a public health emergency of any kind. However, similar media-driven hysteria was exploited by Big Pharma allies in the California legislature in 2015 to end all personal-belief exemptions there, including religious objections. “They are using 127 cases of measles this year to do the same thing in other states,” Fisher added. And already, there are almost 115-vaccine related bills pending in state legislatures across the country, including many that would eliminate exemptions. She urged concerned Americans to get involved in the fight using the NVIC Advocacy Portal to contact their elected officials.

But it is not all bad news. In fact, the NVIC is actually supporting 50 of those bills, because they expand or protect exemptions from vaccine mandates. “What this means is that since California lost its exemptions, not one state has done the same thing,” Fisher said. “So the same lobby that was in place in 2015 is still there, but we have been able to protect these exemptions. I think it is very important that people have been educating their legislators. And many legislators have been listening, and they understand the dangers, they understand that there is no liability, they understand that the government has not done the kind of studies that should have been done on these vaccines. We are encouraged that so many legislators are listening.”

Aside from dealing with international borders, Fisher said vaccine laws have always been at the state level, and they should remain there. But this is about more than just states’ rights. “This is about human rights,” she said. “America needs to be very careful about going down a road that eliminates freedom of conscience when it comes to what you put in your body. This is about values. Are we going to reject the Bill of Rights and our founding principles, or have a strong authoritarian government that eliminates our rights? That is what this comes down to.”

Aside from Gottlieb’s deeply controversial and anti-constitutional views, there are other concerns, too. For instance, Gottlieb was appointed as a member of the “Deep State” burrowed within the federal government known as the Senior Executive Service (SES). He is also affiliated with the neoconservative American Enterprise Institute, which pretends to be conservative but lobbies for everything from carbon taxes and racial quackery to illegal wars such as the fiasco in Iraq. And Gottlieb appears to be a crony capitalist, too, monetizing his government connections by becoming a “venture partner” in the healthcare division of New Enterprise Associates. Using Big Government, his Big Pharma cronies are making big money.

Ironically, as The New American documented in 2015, the federal government’s own data indicates that a child in America is far more likely to die from an adverse reaction to a measles vaccine than from the measles itself. Indeed, until Big Pharma’s marketing gimmicks and government cronies were able to terrorize the public with fear-mongering, measles was typically regarded as a mostly harmless childhood illness that everybody would experience. Characters on popular TV shows such as The Brady Bunch laughed and joked about measles infections. Measles mortality had plummeted to almost nothing by the time the vaccine was introduced in the 1960s. Today, though, vaccine makers and their allies in government act as if it were some sort of catastrophic ailment that threatened civilization.

Mandating vaccines is a major violation of the fundamental, God-given rights of every American. It is a violation of medical ethics and informed consent, too. Using the federal government to mandate vaccines, meanwhile, is a flagrant violation of the Constitution that created the federal government in the first place — the same Constitution Gottlieb swore an oath to uphold and defend. If he feels unable to respect the Constitution and his oath, he should resign immediately. And if he refuses, Trump should fire him. Regardless of where one stands on the risks and efficacy of vaccines, government-mandated medical treatments should not even be a topic of discussion in a civilized society.

Bush Funeral “Envelope Affair” Solved: The Mexican Standoff Inside the Beltway

Trump Enters Uneasy Truce with Deep State

Team Trump Meets Bush Dynasty Half Way to End Epic Feud

State of the Nation

First, these are the indisputable facts:

The State Funeral for George H.W. Bush was held on Wednesday, December 5, 2018 at the Washington National Cathedral. (See the announcement below from their website.)


During the funeral, an extraordinary series of events took place that continue to puzzle the Alt Media to this very day. These events are described at the following link: “THE ENVELOPE AFFAIR”: Bush Funeral Service Foreshadows a Major Series of Radical Events in Washington, D.C.

Then, just two days later, on Friday, December 7, 2018, President Trump nominated Bush lawyer and close confidante — William Barr — for Attorney General. (See screenshot from Wikipedia below.) Barr previously served as Attorney General under President George H.W. Bush.



KEY POINT: There’s no question that William Barr was an elite fixer for Poppy Bush. He did things that only an AG would do knowing that they could act with total impunity, which he did. Because Barr was always a Bush inside man, he is privy to the family secrets as only a ‘family attorney’ would be, so he is completely trusted by them. Which is why he is now Trump’s Attorney General. See: William Barr’s Professional History During Clinton and Bush I Years


William Barr was confirmed as Attorney General on February 14, 2018. This critical AG appointment is the single most important personnel change for the Trump administration in 2019. The true significance of this move will inevitably expose itself in the months to come. In the meantime, the following narrative is presented for those who really want to know what time it is RIGHT NOW.

What really happened?

Everything points to a truce proposition floated at the funeral by President Trump—a truce that was quickly accepted by both sides of the epic feud.

The Bush political dynasty is powerful and pervasive. Under W. Bush the family closely aligned with the Neocon cabal and other influential Zionists.

President Trump is also joined at the hip with both Christian and Israeli Zionists, and especially with the Chabad organization through his Orthodox Jewish son-in-law Jared Kushner.

It appears that Trump knew that he would not have a moment’s peace for his remaining two years and therefore reached out to the Bushes (and other leading crime syndicates) to agree to a peace treaty of sorts.

All the biggest names in both the Bush and Clinton Crime families were present during the Bush funeral. In this way, Trump was able to disseminate the word to all of them that he would no longer pursue his campaign promise to drain the swamp. If Trump was to drain the D.C. swamp, all of them would be flushed down the tubes—FAST!

Clearly, whatever messages were delivered to each of the representatives of the Bush, Clinton and Obama camps at the funeral proved that Trump was dead serious. The biggest message, of course, was that Trump would release highly sensitive information and/or prosecute high crimes that would sink all of their ships in a day and a night. Their various reactions during the “Envelope Affair” clearly reflected a dire warning from Trump. (See: What in the world really happened at the Bush funeral?)

There’s much more intrigue and privileged info associated with this high drama and its aftermath which are explained in captivating detail at the following two links. It is with great certainty that the “Envelope Affair” was staged and filmed by Team Trump to have maximum effect. It may even be the case that both sides were in on it from the beginning as a way of informing all the key players (and the public) that a truce was offered which was decisively accepted.


2019 Changes in the Trump Presidency: THE HIDDEN BACK STORY (Part I)

2019 Changes in the Trump Presidency: THE HIDDEN BACK STORY (Part II)


KEY POINTS: After nearly 2 years on the job, Trump came to realize that you can’t fight city hall. Especially when most of your enemies are invisible. No matter who he appoints, even if they are truly white hats, he saw how easily any administration appointee or government official can be turned against him. His sincere promise to make peace with Russia was not only thwarted at every turn, it has been used against him to portray him as a traitorous POTUS. He saw that the Military-Industrial Complex alone — a big Trump supporter — would not permit a rapprochement with Russia as it’s not good for business. The MIC always needs a boogeyman for the specter of war to loom large in the collective American mind; after all, The USA is the Military Arm of the New World Order.


The major takeaways of this rapidly evolving state of affairs inside the swamp are as follows:

Q and QAnon are LARPs* who have posted massive amounts of hope porn regarding thousands of fictitious sealed indictments. They don’t exist, and they never did. “The PLAN” was never real and only a figment of someone’s fertile imagination who, nonetheless, still has A VERY SERIOUS AGENDA. The Qs are really working for one of the clandestine crime syndicates that currently backs Trump.

*LARP is a type of interactive role-playing game in which the participants portray characters through physical action, often in costume and with props.

With AG William Barr in place there will be no prosecutions of the Clintons, the Bushes, the Obamas or any other crime family including the Rothschilds and Rockefellers. Even career criminal George Soros will skate. The nomination of Barr just 2 days after the funeral reflects the likelihood that the truce offer was immediately accepted by both sides and that Barr would enforce the non-prosecution agreement as Attorney General.

The swamp inside the Beltway will NOT be drained — not even a little — because any prosecutions would make very vulnerable the various crime families. Convictions could even lead to the exposure of the Khazarian Mafia and Black Nobility that really run the whole show as they have since the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and before. The Illuminati crime families simply posses too much wealth to ever be taken down; LOTs of money buys LOTs of power and influence.

The foreign policy of the Trump administration has been completely taken over by warmongering Neocon Zionists. They have been given free rein to execute regime changes in Venezuela, Nicaragua, El Salvador and even Cuba. They will also target Iran in the very near future as well as continue to occupy Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan. Syria is also still in their crosshairs for another day…after other “shock and awe” military conquests have been successful.

Trump’s foreign policy is no longer under his control. Neither are his major domestic policy decisions. He will appear to press on with the border wall, replacing Obamacare, protecting the Second Amendment, and outlawing abortion as a contraceptive, but these initiatives will only be given lip service henceforth. None of them will be accomplished during the remainder of his term in office. See: Trump was even unable to stop infanticide being legalized

It’s also quite likely that Donald Trump will NOT run again for office as part of the deal. At this point, most of the crime syndicates that really run the world do not want him as POTUS, except to usher the USA through a highly controlled bankruptcy. This will be his primary task should the power elite crash the stock market, yet again, and then pull the plug on the global economy. That would be THEIR FINAL SOLUTION if all else fails.

Conclusion

The POTUS has been completely taken over by forces that are way too powerful for any one individual to take on.

The current composition of his cabinet clearly indicates that his major campaign promises will not be fulfilled. The number of Neocon warmongers alone is enough to start World War III. His war cabinet was quite purposefully constituted to advance the fascist side of the New World Order agenda. While the communist side is being humbled like never before, their control of the major pillars of Deep State have made them an implacable foe for Trump.

Therefore, the theater of war that involves the Mainstream Media (MSM), the U.S. Intelligence Community, Big Tech and Big Social Media will not demilitarize. Trump has exposed the MSM “fake news” like no other leader in world history; he has also taken his wrecking ball to the other primary pillars of Deep State. The Powers That Be (TPTB) will not forget the irreparable damage that he inflicted; nor will those individual power players forgive his unparalleled truth-telling about their sedition and sellouts, sins and shortcomings.

This “uneasy truce” is also why the President is zealously promoting, not only the extremely dangerous 5G roll-out, but also a future 6G technology paradigm. Israel has kept their 3G networks frozen in place because Tel Aviv acknowledges the inherent health dangers and risks; and yet they were the primary developers of 5G technology. Why, then, is Trump pushing a completely untested 5G model? See 5G ROLL-OUT CATASTROPHE: An Open Letter to President Donald J. Trump


KEY POINT: Just because there is a truce in effect does not mean that Deep State won’t keep up the constant pressure on Trump. A promise not to impeach, or do an Amendment 25, or assassinate him, is one thing; the determination to prevent his re-election is quite another. Therefore, the MSM insanity will continue forthwith as it also supports the ever-present “divide and conquer” strategy employed by the Black Nobility over the centuries. The outworking of this in-your-face vendetta by the CIA’s Mockingbird Media against Trump for exposing fake news is, after all, an integral component of their stealthy scheme to destroy the American Republic. TPTB aim to make a flaming example of him so that no other leader even thinks about leaving the reservation of political correctness.


There is no defeating Deep State except by the sheer force of people power and posing the very real threat of violence against the 1%. The Shadow Government has had the planet in total lockdown for centuries so how can one man possibly bring down such a deep and wide power structure, especially when most of it operates completely under the radar.

This is exactly where we are, PEOPLE!

CAVEAT

Many folks within the Truth Movement will dismiss this analysis just as ever-hopeful Trumpians will attempt to debunk it at their own peril. It was President Trump, himself, who fastidiously choreographed this perfectly executed series of [TELLING] events. Hence, it is the POTUS who is effectively delivering this message to you—PATRIOT. He is telling US that he is now being held captive with very few opportunities to escape from the Deep State prison. Consequently, he needs our help — the entire Patriot Movement — like never before. Can he even count on the U.S. military flag officers anymore after all the generals who have been fired or relieved of their commands since Inauguration Day?

Special Note

In light of these extraordinary developments, the Patriot Movement is highly encouraged to comprehend the seriousness of this Inescapable Trump Reality Check. From this point forward, events will move in a manner that defy normal analysis. The deeper we get into the 2020 election cycle, the crazier things will get; and the more radical the response will be required from the Right. Particularly in view of the extreme actions by the Left (See: OPERATION CRAFTY BEAVER: Deep State attempts to start a race war before stealing the 2020 POTUS election) will conservatives be compelled to think completely outside the political box. At the very minimum, the following possibility MUST BE SERIOUSLY CONSIDERED—post-haste: What happens if President Trump does not run in 2020?

Smollett Hate Crime Hoax: “It goes all the way up to Obama!”

Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax: He did not act alone… event was staged at the highest levels of the deep state, say sources

by Mike Adams

(Natural News) The Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax was planned at the highest levels of the (Obama) deep state and was intended to foment a race war across America, say multiple sources across the independent media. The official explanation that Smollett “masterminded” (if you can call it that) the hate crime hoax because he wanted a pay raise for his work as an actor on Empire just doesn’t hold water. He is reportedly being paid $65K per episode, bringing in more than $1.1 million per year. Yet we are supposed to believe he would risk his entire career (and significant earnings) to try to push for an increase in his pay?

It doesn’t add up, and several independent media investigators are already starting to dig deeper into the Smollett fiasco. Dave Hodges of The Commonsense Show, for example, writes that a Confidential Informant (CI) says a deep state federal agent was actively involved in plotting the hate crime hoax. Via Dave Hodges:

I am in receipt of a federal agency source who claims that they have knowledge that the staged attack upon Smollette had the participation of a federal agent, but not necessarily the federal agency to which he/she belonged… The obvious purpose of this fake attack was to promote heated racial division and to bring into drama the participation of LGBT political interests because Smollette is admittedly gay. This also has the fingerprints of George Soros because this is just the kind of thing he does repeatedly to promote civil discord by manufacturing racial incidents and promoting them to incite racial division that culminates in violent public protests.

Hodges explains that the attorney of the Nigerian brothers deserves a closer look, as her actual name appears to be clouded under a bizarre history of various aliases and different last names.

It goes all the way up to Obama, reports Jones

Similarly, Alex Jones from InfoWars announced live on the air this morning that a high-level government source informed him that this attack was crafted and pushed by the Obama deep state. Indeed, the whole thing smacks of precisely the kind of “community organizing” that Obama is well known to coordinate and promote.

Remember: Everything the Left does is rooted in fakery and fraud. Even the Russia collusion narrative is a complete hoax. “Hands up don’t shoot” was a hoax. The “train rape” claims against Kavanaugh were a hoax. Many observers say the Charlottesville vehicle attack was instigated or staged, too. Barack Obama and Eric Holder tried to pull off a massive gun crime hoax with Operation Fast and Furious, and there are elements of nearly every mass shooting that raise huge questions about the authenticity of the reports surrounding those events (such as the fact that Broward County sheriff’s deputies were ordered to stand down outside the school and did nothing while the shooting took place).

From gun control to toppling Trump, every goal of the radical Left is consistently pushed with the help of faked elements or false flag events. As Alex Jones explained today, “This is an Obama operation,” referring to the Smollett false flag, for which Smollett has now been charged with a felony. Smollett even faked the hate letter he mailed to himself, according to Chicago police.

The Jussie Smollett story is nowhere near over… it has only just begun

Never forget that the fake news left-wing media said anyone who didn’t believe Smollett’s original claims was a “conspiracy theorist.” This is how they attempt to shut down any questioning of the false flag hate crime hoax. As a matter of fact, those who questioned Smollett’s hoax were the real journalists, while those promoting the hoax were the fakers.

The real questioning has only begun. Many more questions need to be asked on this, such as:

  • Why was Jussie Smollett allowed to turn himself in with no cameras rolling, while Roger Stone was raided at gunpoint with dozens of heavily armed agents while CNN rolled its cameras after being tipped off?
  • Why are some members of the top brass of the Chicago PD being so polite and almost apologetic to Smollett? Didn’t he just waste thousands of hours of police time in Chicago? Didn’t he almost push a nationwide race war?
  • Why is Fox still defending Smollett? Are people in the Empire production crew involved in helping Smollett help stage the hoax to boost the success of the flailing Empire show, which has plummeted in ratings?
  • Where is the apology from CNN, MSNBC, The Atlantic and other radical left-wing media propagandists who pushed this hoax in the first place? So far there are zero apologies and zero retractions. Why is that? And why does Google News continue to promote the very same news sources that repeatedly hoax America with lie after lie? (And why does the NewsGuard browser plug-in give its highest rankings for the news sources that publish the most outrageous lies?)
  • Where is the federal conspiracy charge against Smollett for involving two other people in his hate crime hoax? Where is the charge for using the United States mail to send a threatening letter? Those are federal crimes… are there no charges for that? (Possibly those charges are still coming, we will have to wait and see.)
  • Where is the arrest of CNN’s Don Lemon for his role in this nationwide conspiracy? Don Lemon is not a journalist; he is a hack left-wing activist and co-conspirator who helped push this hate crime hoax with the intended purpose of damaging the reputation of Trump supporters and “keeping the hate alive” in America. In fact, there were a dozen key “journalists” who led the propaganda push for the Smollett hate crime hoax. Their names, according to Breitbart News, are:

– Eugene Scott (Washington Post)
– Don Lemon (CNN)
– Yamiche Alcindor (PBS)
– Joyce Vance (MSNBC)
– Jamil Smith (Rolling Stone)
– April Ryan (CNN)
– Jamele Hill (The Atlantic)
– Zerlina Maxwell (MSNBC)
– Joy Reid (MSNBC)
– Karen Attiah (Washington Post)
– Amy Siskind (Huffington Post)
– Brooke Baldwin (CNN)

Where are the investigations into these political activists for promoting a dangerous conspiracy that almost pushed America into a bloody race war? Remember, every one of these media hacks conducted zero fact checking and ran with the Smollett claims, touting them as established facts when they were, in fact, fabricated lies. Yet there isn’t a single one of these propagandists who has been fired, or criminally investigated for their role in this dangerous conspiracy to deceive America and foment a race war.

Why is the left-wing media allowed to continue pushing utterly fabricated hoaxes at the expense of America?

It’s time to expand the criminal investigation beyond Jussie Smollett and look at who really planned it and who catapulted it into public consciousness in a highly irresponsible, dangerous manner.

Could this photo be a clue about who was really involved?

Stay informed. Read HOAX.news.
