sabotage... one learns something conspiratorial every day...

confetti...

The public will not see Donald Trump’s White House records for years, but there is growing concern the collection will never be complete – leaving a hole in the history of one of America’s most tumultuous presidencies.

 

Trump has been cavalier about the law requiring that records be preserved. He has a habit of ripping up documents before tossing them out, forcing White House workers to spend hours taping them back together.

 

White House staff quickly learned about Trump’s disregard for documents as they witnessed him tearing them up and discarding them. “My director came up to me and said, ‘You have to tape these together,’” said Solomon Lartey, a former White House records analyst. 

The first document he taped back together was a letter from Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leader in the Senate, about a government shutdown. “They told [Trump] to stop doing it. He didn’t want to stop.”

And by the way, see: a leadership going to shreds...


Trump is a crass showman who does not care about the Hollywoodian protocols of historical proportions.

Here we have the latest hullabaloo about the deletion of stupid Trumpolobola history, that most media have claimed to be fanciful all along his presidency, while Wikileaks, the purveyor of true historical records is being hunted until Julian Assange dies in prison. For the power in charge, it does not matter which prison, US or UK, but one can imagine his pain of being denied to be a human being. And this is the crux of history. We cannot have the truth. It is sanitised for our consumption, mostly packaged by our “liberal” media and comedians like Stephen Colbert — and sometimes redirected towards the officialdom versions by “academia” on the pay-roll. 

The record of deception and sabotage is as long as history itself. And this of course is part of my mega-project “The Age of Deceit” which is becoming bigger than Ben Hur.


On 21 April 1943, de Gaulle was scheduled to fly in a Wellington bomber to Scotland to inspect the Free French Navy. On take-off, the bomber's tail dropped, and the plane nearly crashed into the airfield's embankment. Only the skill of the pilot, who became aware of the sabotage on takeoff saved them. On inspection, it was found that aeroplane's separator rod had been sabotaged, using acid.

Britain's MI6 investigated the incident, but no one was ever apprehended. Publicly, blame for the incident was cast on German intelligence, however behind closed doors de Gaulle blamed the Western Allies, and later told colleagues that he no longer had confidence in them.

In The Secret Team, L. Fletcher Prouty’s exposed the CIA’s brutal methods of maintaining national security during the Cold War. It was first published in the 1970s. However, virtually all copies of the book disappeared upon distribution, having been purchased en masse by shady “private buyers.” Certainly, Prouty’s allegations ― such as how the U-2 Crisis of 1960 was fixed to sabotage Eisenhower–Khrushchev talk ― cannot have pleased the CIA. The Secret Team appears once more with a new introduction by Jesse Ventura. The book was republished in 2011.

Prouty’s assumptions could be verified: U2 flyovers of the Soviet Union had been banned by the White House, because of incoming peace talks between Eisenhower and Khrushchev. The CIA organised the famous U2 flyover nonetheless in order to sabotage these talks. Had the plane not been seen by the Russians, this mission would have been wasted. So the plane was sabotaged to crash inside the Soviet Union and create a bit more than an anti-peace sentiment. Whether or not Powers, the pilot, knew this or not is not said, but it is likely that he knew but played the game of innocence rather than take the cyanide pill. 

So contrary to the popular version that the Soviet had shot the plane down, Powers had landed in a field, where the plane that had experienced mechanical failure broke up slightly. Had the plane been shot by a rocket, it would have disintegrated in space into a million pieces — and Powers would not have been able to tell the tale. As well, Powers had his identification papers with him, which is totally contrary to spy etiquette. Furthermore  the filming equipment on board Powers’ U2 was barely an improvement on those used during WW2 on US bomber. So the CIA succeeded in destroying the peace talks...

In one of his other book, JFK — CIA, Vietnam, and the Plot to Assassinate John F. Kennedy, L. Fletcher Prouty also concludes that the CIA did not want JFK engage in peace talks with the Soviets. Prouty may have made some “errors” about some facts (but not in intent) and he got savaged by a few people. I guess that these “errors”, exposed by others, should have been found out by his editor if these were “important” factual errors. For example, Prouty claims that Nixon was in Dallas when JFK got shot. Some people claim that Nixon had already returned to New York from Dallas and was in a taxi when learnt Kennedy had been shot… Because of this discrepancy, and quite a few others, https://mcadams.posc.mu.edu/prouty.htm dismisses Prouty's version of the secret services trying to get rid of Kennedy… Here I feel McAdams is part of the save-the-official-version-which-makes-no-sense-no-matter-what brigade...

We disagree: See Uncle George...

Some other critics, say a Dave Fuhrmann, go full bore on exposing Prouty’s “mistakes”...

On page 17 is one of my favorite Proutyisms, and a crucial one it is. He reports a personal discussion he had in 1945 with a harbormaster in Okinowa (unidentified, un-named, unsupported) who reputedly tells our hero that the shipments of arms and munitions leaving the harbor are on the way to Korea and Indochina. This begs the question of whether or not this harbormaster everreally existed anywhere but in Prouty's imagination (and this story becomes useful later because he holds it up as the definitive evidence that the USG intentionally armed the Viet Minh in order to create a war in which the US could become involved twenty years later).  

But even if the harbormaster existed, what evidence is there to believe that his assertions were accurate?


Maybe he was passing along some of the scuttlebutt and rumor that is the life-blood of a war zone?  Is there ANYTHING to be found that might independently corroborate this story---or at least lend it credibility?  Not that I know of (though Prouty would no doubt shout "AH-HA! at this moment, preparing the ground for another, more insidious Proutyism — the claim that only certain people are capable of understanding the truth.  If so, we're all spinning our wheels in vain. But he isn't even providing citations so we can look at the documents he presumably was looking at when he wrote this stuff.

Yes, Prouty did not produce any proofs, unlike Wikileaks that published so much, possibly more than 2 million pages of US secret documents proving ill intent.

Another claim about Prouty’s falsehoods was about “Report from Iron Mountain”…

REPORT FROM IRON MOUNTAIN - AbundantHope.org

https://library.abundanthope.org/index_htm_files/RFIM.pdf · PDF file


Report From Iron Mountain, a book that the Michigan Militia and other far-right groups regarded as a "sort of bible”  — along with The Turner Diaries and Pat Robertson's New World OrderThe Turner Diaries is a fantasy of right-wing revolution and the New World Order an expose, with antisemitic undertones, of how a cabal of international bankers runs the world

At this stage we should refer to how WW1 was really started by the Brits… Money and supremacy.

According to Report From Iron Mountain,  a 15-member panel, called the Special Study Group, was set up in 1963 to examine what problems would occur if the United States entered a state of lasting peace. They met at an underground nuclear bunker called Iron Mountain (as well as other, worldwide locations) and worked over the next two years. A member of the panel, one "John Doe", a professor at a college in the Midwest, decided to release the report to the public.

The Report from Iron Mountain is a book published in 1967 (during the Johnson Administration) by Dial Press which puts itself forth as the report of a government panel. The book includes the claim it was authored by a Special Study Group of fifteen men whose identities were to remain secret and that it was not intended to be made public. It details the analyses of a government panel which concludes that war, or a credible substitute for war, is necessary if governments are to maintain power. The book was a New York Times bestseller and has been translated into fifteen languages. Controversy still swirls over whether the book was a satiric hoax about think-tank logic and writing style or the product of a secret government panel. The document is a favorite among conspiracy theorists, who reject the statement made in 1972 by satirist Leonard Lewin that the book was a spoof and that he was its author.[1]

The heavily footnoted report concluded that peace was not in the interest of a stable society, that even if lasting peace "could be achieved, it would almost certainly not be in the best interests of society to achieve it." War was a part of the economy. Therefore, it was necessary to conceive a state of war for a stable economy. The government, the group theorized, would not exist without war, and nation states existed in order to wage war. War served the vital function of diverting collective aggression. They recommended "credible substitutes" and paying a "blood price" to emulate the economic functions of war. Prospective government-devised alternatives to war included reports of alien life-forms, the reintroduction of a "euphemized form" of slavery "consistent with modern technology and political processes", and - one deemed particularly promising in gaining the attention of the malleable masses - the threat of "gross pollution of the environment.

While this could be a satire written in the late 1960s, it became a reality with the The Project for a New American Century, in 1999. As well:

A little over 20 years ago, North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) conducted a military exercise that involved a “hypothetical scenario” of hijacked planes flying into both the Pentagon and the World Trade Center.


One year later, on October 24-26, 2000, another “hypothetical” military exercise was played out featuring an airline crashing into the Pentagon killing 341 people followed by yet another May 2001 Department of Defense “hypothetical scenario” which saw hundreds of medical personnel training for a “guided missile in the form of a hijacked 757 airliner” crashing into the Pentagon.


What arose from the smoke and debris of September 11, 2001 was unlike anything the sleeping masses or international community expected.


The shock effect so traumatized the masses that quite suddenly, citizens found themselves willing to give up their liberties at home while acquiescing to any retaliatory action desired by their government abroad. The scale of horror was so great that the international community banded together and showed their love and solidarity towards America in the wake of the tragedy with candlelight vigils across Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Russia and South America. Humanity’s natural tendency to embrace and aid our fellow man in times of crisis expressed itself like a bright light in a world of confused darkness and a hope for a durable peace awoke in the hearts of many.


Alas, as the world came soon to discover, that hope was short lived.



The Neocon Takeover of America


Police State measures grew swiftly with the Patriot Act and mass internal surveillance under the “crisis management” run by the neocon cabal in the White House. While a new type of regime change war was created abroad, Dangerous protocols for Cheney’s “Continuity of Government” were set into motion and with these procedures, new mandates for Martial Law were created amplifying the powers, financing and deployment of U.S. Military capabilities both within the USA “under crisis conditions” and around the world.


Governments that had no connection to 9/11 were swiftly targeted for destruction using false evidence of “yellowcake” produced in the bowels of MI6, and a broader unipolar military encirclement of both Russia and China was set into motion which President Putin called out brilliantly in his famous 2007 Munich Security Conference Speech.


Of course this should not have been a surprise for anyone who took the time to read the Project for a New American Century manifesto published in October 2000 entitled Rebuilding America’s Defenses’ (RAD).

And by the way, JOE BIDEN WROTE THE PATRIOT ACT:
https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4876107/user-clip-joe-biden-wrote-patriot-act

Here we shall just add that REPORT FROM IRON MOUNTAIN is now called the "great reset".


This shall be enough about our study of deceit and sabotage for today… L. Fletcher Prouty was not a dummy and a lot of what he wrote could have been what he secretly heard being discussed in the “corridors of powers”... These kinds of discussions leave no traceable documents but does not mean that the info is wrong. We have had plenty of this in Australia, including during the wheat for oil/cash with Saddam during the "embargoes”… EVERYONE "important in government" HAD TO KNOW IT WAS HAPPENING See: dysfunctional silos ..... and a fairy tell ending .....and AWB- Sham, Scam, Shame.,BUT THERE IS NO RECORD OF IT, though some people became the fall-persons by blabbing too much…

and others...

incompetence, bias and deliberate lies...

 

By Kit Klarenberg, an investigative journalist exploring the role of intelligence services in shaping politics and perceptions.

 


The just-published transcripts of interviews carried out by US lawmakers scrutinising the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane probe reveal the incompetence, bias, and dishonesty that marred the investigation from the very start.

On January 15, the Senate Judiciary Committee declassified a number of interviews conducted over the course of 2020 with assorted officials conducted during its investigation of the origins and aftermath of Crossfire Hurricane, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) probe into potential collusion between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and the Kremlin.

In an accompanying statement, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, Committee Chair, said the material furthered his contention that Crossfire Hurricane was “a massive system failure” on the part of senior FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) officials, who were “either grossly incompetent or knowingly allowed tremendous misdeeds.”

“Crossfire Hurricane was one of the most incompetent and corrupt investigations in the history of the FBI and DOJ. The FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] court was lied to. Exculpatory information was withheld on those being investigated,” he fulminated. “Investigators, with some notable exceptions, were incredibly biased and used the powers of law enforcement for political purposes. The subjects of the investigation had their lives turned upside down. At every turn, the FBI and DOJ ran stop signs that were in abundance regarding exculpatory information.”

Given what so many of the individuals quizzed by the Senate revealed under oath, Graham’s incendiary condemnations seem thoroughly warranted. One can only hope his view that the actions of the officials in question were “not representative of the dedicated, hardworking patriots who protect our nation every day” is correct.

No evidence of collusion

On June 8, 2017, former FBI Director James Comey appeared before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSIC), following his abrupt firing by Donald Trump a month prior – a move that precipitated the launch of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation.

The mainstream media widely forecast in advance that his testimony would provide bombshell insight into the White House’s intimate, illicit connections with Moscow, and could spell the beginning of the administration’s end, if not the end itself.

In the event, while Comey had some harsh words indeed for the man who’d dismissed him, he was repeatedly evasive on key questions related to investigations into the Trump campaign’s potential ties to the Kremlin, merely confirming all its members were being scrutinized – which he’d already disclosed to much fanfare three months earlier.

Among the newly declassified transcripts is the June 2020 Senate testimony of Dana J. Boente, a senior DOJ official who oversaw pivotal periods of Crossfire Hurricane. It raises obvious concerns about Comey’s public statements, and his motivations for making them.

“I recall being told at some point, maybe not February [2017], [but] between February and April, because, thankfully, my involvement ended in April, that there was no evidence of collusion with the Trump campaign,” he told the Committee.

Boente also made clear that Comey was determined to publicize the ongoing investigation, and outlined his intention to do so before his SSIC appearance, which the DOJ had misgivings about.

“Well, I certainly felt that he could [mention it]. ‘Should’ is a much more difficult question, but I ceded to his request to brief on it ...We don’t like to brief on pending criminal investigations as a matter of policy … I think he said … that the Intelligence Committee should know about or understand a maligned foreign power had attempted to affect our presidential election,” Boente recalled.

Since Comey’s Senate appearance, it’s been revealed that only a small minority within the US intelligence community were of the view that a “foreign power” had attempted to impact the outcome of the 2016 vote. However, then-CIA director John Brennan, with the support of Comey, excluded dissenting voices from the controversial ‘Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent Elections.’

The Assessment has been invoked as proof of meddling by the Kremlin in not merely the US but democracies the world over ever after – and was used to justify keeping Crossfire Hurricane going.
