Corruption in Ukraine Part 1

A hopeless money pit that exemplifies America’s arrogance in its continued attempt to fix other countries

joe biden

It is not  hard at all to find corruption in Ukraine. As I searched the web, I found it everywhere, and at all levels of life. In the life of everyday citizens it is pervasive and accepted as normal. This is a different culture, that Americans simply cannot understand. What would any American do or say if when making an appointment at the doctor, they had to pay the nurse a bribe in order to get that appointment? Or how about if you wanted to ride the bus, and the driver demanded a bribe before you could board? Its everywhere. In business its even worse. Want to get a building permit? Pay a series of bribes. Want to ship products to another city? Bribe the driver and hope your goods arrive and are not stolen. Ukrainians cannot escape corruption. In fact, they have become extremely complacent when it comes to corruption.  They simply accept it as a way of life. So when it comes to corruption at the upper levels of government, they are simply cynical and feel helpless to do anything about it. It goes on and on, all, with impunity.  I might add, that this level of corruption develops slowly over many, many years. If what is happening in America right now, is allowed to continue unpunished, we will wind up just like Ukraine.

To say the government of Ukraine is corrupt is a gross understatement. Let me start with some basic history, just in case you are unfamiliar with Ukraine. Ukraine sits almost in the middle of Europe. Its longest border is with Russia, and it sits on the Black Sea directly across from Turkey. Its capital is Kiev. Prior to 1991, Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union and still has many former Russian patriots living there. Prior to 1991, a great deal of the Soviet Union’s nuclear arsenal was located in Ukraine.  In 1994. Russia, Ukraine, and the United States reached an agreement where Ukraine would return all warheads to Russia for eliminating, while the US and Britain would provide certain security assurances. Since then we have conducted a foreign policy to briviktor yuschenkong Ukraine closer to Europe and out from Russian influence. A series of Soviet style presidents have been “elected” to Ukraine’s highest office since Ukraine became an independent nation in 1991, each one being more corrupt than the previous. In 2004 a man named Viktor Yushchenko was president of Ukraine. His policies like all previous Ukrainian presidents was to cozy up to Europe and move away from Russia. In 2004  a presidential election was held and Yushchenko’s opponent was  Viktor Yanukovych….yeah, I know, who can keep these names straight? Viktor YanukovychIn a close election, Yanukovych, a Russian puppet, won, but huge protests broke out in what became to be called the orange revolution. Under claims of voter fraud and vote rigging, the election results were annulled by the courts, and another election was held. Yushchenko maintained the presidency.

The next election was in 2010, and this time, Yanukovych won outright.  You got to know that this truly was Russian interference.  During this time Europe was courting Ukraine and talk of entering NATO was prevalent. Yanukovich was ready to sign a deal with Europe for a large aid package in the billions, when, at the last minute, made the decision to accept a loan from Russia instead. You see, it was all a lie, Yanukovych was a Russian stooge. His move sparked an actual revolution in 2014, where he was ousted, then fled to Moscow. There is no doubt that the CIA and what we call the deep state were   behind the revolution. The CIA and deep state are singularly laser focused on Russia and doing as much damage as possible to them….they just can’t get out of the cold war.

Before I leave the presidency of Yanukovych, let me give you a great example of the kind of corruption we’re talking about. In order to woo Ukraine under the European/NATO umbrella, Britain, Germany and others made a big deal of helping Ukraine to recover billions of dollars in offshore accounts, thought stolen from Ukraine. In March of 2014, the BNP bank in London received a request from Yanukovych’s lawyers to close an account and transfer the money to the bank of Cyprus. In the scheme of billions, it was a paltry $23 million. Still, a lot of cash. When the transfer was reported to Britain’s Serious Fraud Office (SFO) the transfer was placed on hold, pending investigation. Theresa May, the then Home Secretary, decided to make a big statement by holding the money. Yanukovych sued the bank. Investigators in Ukraine informed Britain that the money belonged to Ukraine and should not be released, but after a year, the case came before a British judge and Ukraine changed its story. Higher ups in the Ukranian prosecutor’s office, whose names were not disclosed, sent a letter stating “no crimes have been committed” to warrant the hold. As we will see, this happens a lot in Ukraine, honest investigators and journalists uncover criminal activity only to be ignored or disposed of by others in the government.

Understand that our history with Ukraine is complicated. What I just gave you was a very broad overview. Russia has always thought of Ukraine as part of Russia and so in 2014, when the CIA ousted Yanukovych, they moved on Crimea. Crimea is part of Ukraine and is a strategic Black Sea asset. They soon after, moved on to Eastern Ukraine, where a hot war has been going on since 2014. We are told over and over that Russia is evil and the aggressor, but as in so many instances, it is our CIA that prompts these aggressions by meddling in other countries. But let’s get back to corruption.

viktor poroschenko
Poroschenko

 

Poroschenko became the next president of Ukraine when elected in 2014. He became the face of corruption. Poroschenko was an oligarch in Ukraine, who made his fortune in the candy industry, known as the “chocolate king”.  But his fortune was bigger than that. He was in many other industries and agriculture, and had created bank accounts and shell companies all over the world, as he pillaged the national treasury. His candy company was registered in Cyprus, a perennial tax haven.  After the voters ousted Yanukovych, Poroschenko picked up where he left off.

Corruption is a strange evil. Like it or not, it is rampant in our society and across the world. Most people, everywhere, seem to take it in stride, and feel helpless to do anything about it. I must say, as a little guy focused on this evil, it is certainly frustrating to know what I know, and yet, nothing is ever done to end it, at least here. If I may wane philosophical, it is human nature to be corrupt, to seek power over others through acquiring wealth…..corrupt behavior is always easier than the hard work it takes to actually build something through effort or to gain power and respect by doing what is right. Especially if those that are to post guard over corruption….law enforcement, are also corrupt.

The story of Ukraine is the pinnacle of what happens to a society that becomes incessantly corrupt. The people are oppressed, poor, and without work. Foreign investment is almost non-existent, and the country is drained of its resources and wealth. every year, an estimated $12 billion dollars exits Ukraine, money that has illicit or unknown origins. To add to that sad story, America has invested tens of billions of dollars in Ukraine since they broke away from Russia. A lot of that money simply disappeared. In one reported instance, $7.2 billion found its way into The US investment fund, Franklin Templeton and another $600 million into the American hedge fund operated by Blackrock Capital. The money reportedly came from the Ukraine Sovereign Fund…..state money…..appropriated by Poroschenko.

There is so much corruption in Ukraine I could write a lengthy book about all the avenues it takes…..I’m not going to do that. But before I get into the Bidens and the corruption people are interested in today as it applies to the current impeachment fiasco, allow me to tell you about a document I found, that I will discuss in part 2 of this post.  I had really planned to provide a link to it, so you could see the whole thing, but three days after I downloaded it, it was removed by “foreignassistance.gov”. So I have included two screen shots of the document. I can’t post the whole document because…..get ready….. its a spread sheet with 18,067 rows and 12 columns. Its a somewhat detailed accounting of all the money spent in Ukraine and who it went to. You see, when we think of foreign aid, we believe that the US government is giving tax money to other governments. But that’s not how foreign aid generally works. The money is appropriated by congress, given to USAID, (United States Agency for International Development) the State Department, or other agencies, through budgeting, then USAID or State assigns it to an organization or company to “manage”, who then determines who will get it and how it will be used. Now, I’m speculating, but I can only imagine the vast number of opportunities for this money to be misused or simply stolen.                                                 I’ll talk about that in Part 2

Are the Biden’s corrupt? As much as we’d all like it to be true, after extensive research, I cannot find a shred of evidence that JOE Biden is corrupt. Yes….there is the usual pay for play and access that most powerful senators are all guilty of because of our disgusting campaign financing rules. To be honest, I can’t believe I just said that. It seems I have become complacent, like everybody else, about the everyday corruption in Washington that we all accept. Joe has indulged in this over the years to garner support from unions, banks and the usual villains. But to say he is corrupt would be unfair. His bank records indicate he never really benefitted from his position. However, as much as I don’t want to paint Joe as a victim, he is extremely loyal to his family and its his family that really stinks of illegality. I would say Joe Biden has been protecting Hunter his whole life.

James Biden

 

Joe’s brother JAMES Biden was described in one article as a “serial entrepreneur”. That’s a kind way to describe a crook. He has started and closed a dozen companies, mostly in finance. Each one shadier than the previous and HUNTER, his son, was partner to James in many of them. James and Hunter, for years, have used the Biden name and Joe’s position to leverage loans, deals, and contracts. Just how much involvement Joe had is not known. In one venture, Paradigm Global Advisors, a hedge fund accumulator, was acquired by James and Hunter using an $8.1 million promissory note. that in the end, was never paid.  According to Politico:

“One former executive said Hunter and James used the assets as a personal account drawing out as much as a million dollars in a single year. At one point, the executive said, Hunter called him and asked him to hand over $21,000 in company funds for a personal mortgage payment. When the executive refused, saying the funds were needed to cover operating expenses, he recalled that Hunter — who recently told The New Yorker he has spent most of his life living paycheck to paycheck — responded that he might lose his house. “Hunter did take substantial dollars out of the company,” said a second former Paradigm executive, describing the withdrawals as a “semi-regular” subject of discussion and concern within the firm.”

Its only speculation, but this also corresponds in a timeline with the severe alcohol and drug habit that Hunter Biden had. It seems like having access to millions of dollars and a drug habit don’t bode well for success. But that’s just me. Politico wrote a very well researched piece on the Bidens and there seedy business ventures. Its rather long, but goes into great detail….you can read it here. Joe is one of the few Washington lifers that never became a millionaire until after becoming VP. For many years he lived a pretty mundane financial life, never amassing a fortune, starting a foundation,  or writing a book….oh wait…..he did amass a fortune, but not until after becoming the VP. He did start a foundation in 2017. And it was one of those foundations that purported to solve the world’s problems…not unlike another foundation we all know…..the difference with it, is that he shut it down last year, when he decided to run for president.

You see, being president provides power…..a lot more power than running a foundation. And…. that power provides access to the money. He also did write a couple of books that earned him 7 figures. He now claims $100,000 to speak and has cashed in big after leaving office.

 

 

 

Just to be clear, you’ve all seen the video of Joe bragging about getting the Ukrainian prosecutor general, Viktor Shokin, fired.

The democrat line is that there is evidence that this particular prosecutor was partial to his friends and often slow walked or declined prosecutions of certain “connected” Ukranians. He was considered corrupt by the EU and many other countries. Joe seemed to just be following the crowd as he did most of his career. Putting Joe Biden in charge of cleaning up corruption in Ukraine was like putting Pee Wee Herman in as the starting quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs…..he was out of his league.  Joe Biden was made “point person” in Ukraine right after Russia invaded and annexed the Crimea, a sovereign part of Ukraine, in February of 2014. He was to evaluate the situation, coordinate US foreign policy there, and oversee US aid. Two months after that appointment, in April of 2014, a company you will hear a lot about, Burisma, placed Hunter Biden and Devon Archer onto its board.  They were  each paid a million dollars a year.

Burisma Holdings  is an oil and gas company, one of the largest in Ukraine. It is a conglomerate with many subsidiaries, and even though its a Ukrainian company, it is registered in Cyprus. Its sales are undisclosed, but estimated to be in the $4-500 million/year range. As an aside, it does most of its business in Ukraine, but also has holdings and sales in Kazakhstan. This made me think about the 5 part series I did on corruption in Kazakhstan, second only to Ukraine in the levels of corruption. Burisma operates very much like the companies in that country. You can read that series here. Burisma is owned by a Ukrainian Oligarch named  Mykola Zlochevsky.

Mykola Zlochevsky

Zlochevsky formed Burisma in 2002. While owning Burisma he became Minister of ecology and natural resources in 2010. Unlike in our political process, there is no divesting of personal holdings while working in the government. So it is alleged that while serving as the minister of natural resources and running Burisma, he illegally transferred exploration licenses to Burisma. When Yanukovych was ousted in 2014, Zlochevsky also fled the country, believed to be living in Monaco. Since that time, investigations into Zlochevsky and Burisma have been on again off again, depending on who was investigating the disappearance of Ukrainian money. In Ukraine, money can buy a lot of silence. This was the backdrop to the 2014 Hunter Biden position.

Enter Rudy Giuliani.

Rudy Giuliani has made a big deal of this firing and the video below is of Giuliani interviewing the prosecutor, Viktor Shokin. This clip I cut from the longer pod cast, is the beginning salvo from Giuliani to reveal the truth. I have to admit that I’m not a Giuliani fan and he’s a little over the top on some of his assertions. But you can at least judge for yourself Shokin’s credibility by watching the 25 minute video. For those of you that don’t here are the highlights. Giuliani asserts that Shokin is not corrupt, that he has never been accused or convicted of anything illegal….hasn’t even ever been in court charged with anything….squeaky clean! I could just shut up know, but I doubt very seriously that there are any individuals in Ukraine that are squeaky clean. However, for me the highlight of the video is a document he obtained that came from Latvia. The document alerts Ukrainian prosecutors of a suspected money laundering scheme taking place. Burisma had diverted $14 million from a Latvian bank to several shell companies, eventually finding its way to Cyprus, then distributed as “board member expenses”. The document names at least 5 board members, including Biden and Archer. the document also lays out individual payments to those board members, ranging from $300,000 to $1.2 million…..all except Biden and Archer. Giuliani asserts that when he asked why, he was told that the US embassy instructed the Latvian government to leave those amounts out.  Its to yet to be seen if any of it is true……but any sane individual can only conclude that whatever is going on there with the Bidens is worth further investigation by somebody that’s honest.

 

 

Hunter Biden is another whole story…..his whole career was about lying, cheating, stealing,  addiction, womanizing and conning anyone that could be conned. He used his father’s position to leverage others to give him money, money he soon spent or lost. A poor, unredeemed, lost sole. James and Hunter are the people they make movies about. Always looking for the next score…the next big deal….another get rich quick scheme, that in the end, never comes. I think looking at the Bidens, however, is looking in the wrong direction for corruption. The corruption in Ukraine is systemic and lots of Americans are involved. In part 2 of this story I will cover how I think the money is moving from your wallet to wealthy elite bank accounts and how the corruption in Ukraine affected the 2016 election.

After spending weeks learning about Ukraine and writing the blog above, new information came out today. (February 7th, 2020) Glenn Beck reported, in his fourth installment on Ukraine, what he thinks is really going on. Its earth shattering. WAR! All these dweebs in our government are funding and conducting an actual hot war with Russia, using Ukraine as a proxy. All without any knowledge of the Congress….at least none that we’re told of. Seems like war with Russia would be something they might want to mention…..just another example of our CIA and State Deparment conducting their own foreign policy. Trump actually wants to stop this crap….so he’s gotta go. So watch Glenn’s video…its crammed with information. I’ll still be reporting on the document I found at a later date….when I have digested it.

 

 

 

The CIA, the war on Trump, and the on-going cover up

Why we will never know the truth

Its been months since I last posted. In those months I have reflected over and over on everything I have learned about our government and how it operates. Also in those months I have been reading and watching as the cover-up unfolds. Make no mistake, there was/is a plan to make what they are doing to Donald Trump all go away. It would seem the cover-up began sometime before the mid-terms. It was always clear to me, at least, that the exposure of the deep state and their clandestine activities would be a disaster for our country.spy vs spy 2

Whenever anyone that investigates government corruption and even mentions the deep state, immediately that person is accused of being some sort of conspiracy nut job. Mostly from the ill-informed left, but even the right does it. Even for me, before I engulfed myself in this, I didn’t want to believe our government would turn on its people and do the things they are doing. But they are! What I have determined is that none of this started with Trump……it just got out of hand because so much information is now available. It is now possible to look up past events and connect them to a pattern. A pattern that, in its entirety, reveal much about and why our government is behaving the way it does.

I have written about the deep state many times. Here is one post from a year ago that spells out what I knew at the time, of which, most is still relevant: The Deep State, Part 1

IC Community

For 6 decades the intelligence community has always held sway over our foreign policy. Their intelligence gathering has always been the lynchpin to what controls our actions. They appear to have an agenda, to keep America safe and the top dog in the world. They sincerely believe that a few elected representatives can never grasp the complexity of world affairs, and will never know what’s right and needed to do to achieve the goal. So let me be clear: As America grew in stature and dominance, the intelligence community could justify any action, as necessary to fulfill their mission to protect America. But as time passed, more and more things were exposed. In the early days, the bay of pigs, the installation of the Shaw of Iran, the assassination of King Faisal, and the pardon of Marc Rich, these events were easily covered up by the pliant media. Any alternate explanations were quickly deemed conspiracy theories and no investigations occurred.

At some point along the way, politics entered the equation. My sense is, that as the president has gained more pre-eminence and power, one party or the other, found they could use these unusual moves by the intelligence community against the other party’s president. The congressional hearing was the tool of choice. What is so hard to discern, are those hearings that are useful and necessary and those that are purely political. I would say that almost all are political. Most members of congress are informed by staff and lobbyists way before any hearing is called for. One rule of thumb that can be used, is the degree to which these hearings are covered by the news media. The bigger the spotlight, the more political in nature they are. So what is meant by “political”?  It means the sole purpose of public hearings is to provide cover for congressman to their constituents. Decisions are always made before hearings are ever held. The hearing is simply a political platform for members of congress. Just think about all the hearings that have been held in the last 8-10 years? Each time, we are told that, finally, the truth will be revealed and action will be taken. Has anything happened to anybody as a result of congressional hearings? Has anyone been held accountable? It’s all a Kabuki theater to make the public believe something is being done…..but you see, nothing really is being done.

It is also important to point out that even in government, there are a few true believers. Those that really try hard to make a difference, but soon learn, unless they play by the establishment rules, their time in congress will be short-lived and they might even be forced from office. The intelligence community knows everything about these people, that there is to know. From their childhood through school and career. What American can say in their entire life, there is not a blemish on that life that they are ashamed of? Even if they think no one knows about it, the intelligence community knows…..it is their business.

Like I already said, the intelligence community has a long history of manipulating world and domestic affairs to achieve a perceived outcome. In 1960, the CIA concocted a plan to invade Cuba. I won’t give you the details, you can read about it here. It was refered to as “The Bay of Pigs”. The plan was concocted during the Eisenhower administration, then authorized by Kennedy as he came into office. It was just one high-profile example of CIA involvement in clandestine military operations 60 years ago. But there’s another fact from the Bay of Pigs episode that is, now, widely known. President Kennedy refused to send reinforcing air power, when the assault on Cuba ran into sharp resistance. You can imagine how this sat with the CIA. It is also a fact that shortly after the Bay of Pigs, our involvement in Vietnam began. Kennedy agreed to increasing the number of South Vietnamese troops by 20,000 and to send 1000 US military “advisors” to South Vietnam. It is important to understand that the mindset of the American military in 1961 was to stop communism from spreading. Kennedy became convinced that the South Vietnamese needed our help. But Kennedy was no war monger and was worried of being bogged down there as he was told by Charles DeGaul of France. Even though Kennedy continued to increase the advisor amount, he ordered the American force to not participate in combat.  By 1963, the war for South Vietnam was already going badly, and the CIA assassinated the South Vietnam president. Three weeks later, Kennedy was assassinated. I’m not immune to what most will say….that its just another conspiracy theory. But it’s not. I only bring these things to your attention to help you see the CIA and our intelligence community for who they are.  This is hard stuff to know and even harder to believe….but the CIA believes in what they are doing and will do anything to accomplish their stated goals…….anything! There are literally thousands of examples of CIA and IC (Intelligence Community) involvement in foreign lands, this is no secret and possibly not even illegal. I’ve stumbled on many stories myself. I wish I knew just how many CIA and other intelligence officers there are. It’s classified for sure, but its got to be in the tens of thousands. They’re everywhere, and even when they retire, they are still considered an asset. What is not widely known, is, how they participate in politics. Make no mistake, they are very involved. They need authorization from congressional committees, agency secretaries, ambassadors, and yes, the president, to do things that could make headlines. That said, many of the things they do, that may not make headlines, get very little external scrutiny.

The wildcard in all the cases I could write about that the CIA has undertaken, is the corruption that it has brought. When the government is working outside the law and the constitution, which they do on a daily basis, there will always be those that will take the opportunity to get rich and gain more power. This is human nature. As the CIA took on a larger and larger role in American policy and actions, corruption became rampant. Rampant to the point that keeping the actions secret became harder and harder.

Then came Watergate. This was different. This wasn’t about a clandestine action or paramilitary operation, this was about foreign policy. Nixon promised to end the war in Vietnam. Nixon normalized relations with China, and laid the way to the SALT 1 treaty with Russia, that led to further nuclear disarmament. We all believe Nixon was a crook, and a bad president, but could there be another explanation?  The next case is the Iran Contra scandal…..weapons for hostages! Was that really what it was about or yet another attempt to remove a republican president? The Marc Rich pardon was an episode that today is virtually unknown, but trust me, it was more of the same. Marc Rich was an important CIA asset and was used by them to illegally break US economic sanctions on bad international players. Sanctions by the US congress and/or the president often get in the way of CIA operations. The CIA deems what Marc Rich and others did, was necessary to conduct the “proper” US foreign policy. Law and the constitution be damned.

constitution 2

I want to make something perfectly clear for all my critics. They have called me all sorts of things including crazy, extremist, hard right, and very often a conspiracy nut job. It is those that refuse to believe that our intelligence community believes they have a higher calling….one to protect America, keep America strong, and keep the world safe from global threats. This is no small task and very complex to achieve. As worthy and important as their mission is, it is the corruption that invariably takes place that brings so much scrutiny. Make no mistake, in order to conduct their mission, the Intelligence community MUST do things that are illegal. I think they tend to rationalize this behavior as necessary and something an uninformed electorate and their representatives cannot grasp. And it is a complex world with many, many bad actors. The IC believes in what they do, and should possibly keep doing most of it. Certainly more transparency would have to come with lengthy explanations of why, how, and who they are working with, which, certainly would be met with disdain by the public. This is why things are classified and kept from the public. why we will never know for sure what they are doing, and why the deep state can never be exposed.

Another aspect of CIA activity is their placement of operatives, not only in all government agencies, but in Corporate America, as well. Recently I wrote about Fletcher Prouty, a 1980s whistle-blower, that wrote a book called “Secret Team”, which exposed the CIA’s placement of operatives into all agencies of government, including congress. But running government is not enough. They now are entering corporate America in a big way. In August of 2018, there was a story about 60 ex-CIA officials that signed a letter to Trump, expressing their displeasure that Trump had revoked John Brennan’s security clearance. I took that list and searched the first 7 on the list, just to see what, if anything, they were doing now. All 7 were now in corporate America.

I’m sure I could have went down the entire list and everyone of them is now working in the private sector. But of course, one would say, why wouldn’t they do something after retiring. OK, that’s fair, but the CIA also has a policy to allow all their employees to work in the private sector while they are working at the CIA. Here’s an excerpt from an article in the Telegraph:

CIA allows agents to moonlight

The CIA is allowing operatives to moonlight by selling their espionage expertise

Officials said the policy was needed to stop top CIA officers from leaving the spy agency, where the millions spent on their training can help command very high salaries………

Details of the policy appear in Broker, Trader, Lawyer, Spy: The Secret World of Corporate Espionage by Eamon Javers.

Officials said that the out-of-hours work did not compromise national security and was only allowed once CIA officers had submitted full details of the work and been granted permission.

It is not known how long the policy has been in place or how many CIA officers work for outside organisations.

The policy is an indication of the attractiveness of CIA techniques

This doesn’t even speak to the countless ex-CIA I found working at Teneo, and many foundations and non-profits all over the world. Judging from what I found, I can confidently say that there must be thousands of current and former CIA employees in Corporate America. It all reminds me of an episode of Law and Order, where one undercover cop posed as an anti-war activist while another undercover FBI agent posed as a member of the Black Panthers in the 60s. One shot the other, neither knew who the other really was.

With the advent of the information age, there is no doubt that human intelligence is still vital to national security. But adding that political piece to the mix is extremely dangerous and only further enhances public distrust of the Intelligence Community. Can anyone deny the bias that was exposed at these agencies during the past year? Have they not done everything to obfuscate, deny, delay, and ignore congress?

So why do I work so hard to expose the deep state? Because of what I know. They have crossed the line many times…..Today I was trying to learn about CIA involvement in Morocco, in the context of Carter Page.

Although no information was available, Carter Page did work in Morocco as an intelligence officer while in the Navy, at the time Bill Clinton, as president, traveled there for the funeral of the king. During that search, however, there were plenty of stories about the work of the CIA in that country. An opposition leader was reportedly assassinated by the CIA and many stories disclosing the use of Moroccan prisons as places of torture while CIA operators were involved in the interrogation……all washed away in history, and tacitly accepted as necessary for “security”. But what they have and are doing to Trump is a bridge too far. They have staged an arguably provable coup against a legitimately elected American president. This is no joke, and is still happening as I write. you can read what I wrote about it here. The witch hunt of the Mueller investigation is a travesty. It has been used to “create” evidence of a crime where none exists. This is far different from “finding” evidence of a crime. I believe this investigation has been purposely extended beyond the 2018 midterms in order to assure the democrats would shut down the republican inquiries and begin political investigations into everything Trump. But Ken, you say, we still have the senate and Lindsey Graham will be in charge of the senate judiciary committee. Do you not know who’s pocket Lindsey Graham is in?  Graham is a neocon, a hawk, and totally in bed with the CIA and the defense industry. This will end all possible exposure of the coup attempt and begin a political process to have Trump removed by impeachment, or resignation. Again, you say, impeachment can’t happen, we have the senate. Mark my words, it would only take 19 republican senators to go along. So what if the CIA provided information, true or not, that Trump said or did something that would jeopardize national security or conducted financial transactions with some unsavory terrorist types….whatever. All it would have to be is plausible to those 19 senators and give them cover to vote for impeachment. Believe me, the CIA can put pressure on enough senators to get their vote.  If none of it works, he certainly will lose in 2020. The Intelligence Community now, I believe, has taken control over the election process, at least at the national level. They will, never again, allow a person, not of their choice, to become president.

So what’s the bottom line here?  If you have read my previous work, you’ll know that I’ve said consistently that we are in a battle between Nationalism and Globalism. The battles have been going on for 60 years, but since the inception of the Tea Party, some Americans have determined they don’t want Globalism and began to fight back….with information. The battle today, is for that information. I can assure you that we are using a Glock 9, while the other side uses ICBMs topped with thousands of nuclear warheads……we are out of our league. We are losing badly and we are all afraid to take the next step.  All I can do is keep writing and all you can do is keep sharing and commenting.  Keep fighting, my friends.

Russian Collusion, the Real Story

Why the CIA is fighting so hard to remove Trump

As I dig deeper into the coup attempt by officials at the highest levels of our government, I hesitate to go on. Not because I don’t care, but because what I am learning….maybe I shouldn’t know. Now there is no way I, or anybody but those involved, can know the workings of the CIA or the Intelligence Community….its designed that way. So the pieces I am able to glean are certainly incomplete and mysterious, and leave many questions. Last year I began a ten part series on the Clinton Foundation titled “Into The Weeds”. I used that title, because everything I found was complicated and took focus to follow. I’m sure many readers were confused. Well, this next part of the story makes that look like a child’s book.

That said, I believe I can conclude that I know what happened. It all starts with the Magnitsky Act! What the hell is that??? Yes, I know, only a handful of informed conservatives know what it is or why it was enacted, and why it is important. Much has been written about it so I won’t endeavor to provide its substance here. Wilkipedia has a pretty good basic (and short) explanation. I will, however, try to give you an analysis that connects the dots to this soft coup taking place. You can read about the Magnitsky Act here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnitsky_Act

Magnitsky
Sergei Magnitsky

The Magnitsky Act revolved around a company called Prevezon and an elaborate money laundering scheme inside Russia. Many times I have laid out for you just how corrupt the so-called Russian government is. The oligarchs control things and many government officials simply do their bidding. This scheme, involving a quarter billion dollars, was no different. It occurred in 2007, and was discovered in 2012. Russia brought charges, but failed to investigate thoroughly, due to who was involved. Meanwhile in America, law enforcement moved to seize questionable assets of Prevezon while bringing charges in America. This was sometime right around the election of 2016. The case was set to go to trial in the Southern District of NY in March of 2017. Coincidently, or not so coincidently, this is the exact time Preet Bahara was fired by Jeff Sessions. Bahara was the United States attorney for the Southern District of NY. The case was mysteriously settled for a mere $6 million in October of 2017. Now….did this firing, and this case, prompt anger at the CIA? Was Trump and Sessions beginning to ease pressure on Russia? You see the Magnitsky act gave the US government a lot of power over the Russian economy. Through the US banking system and their control over a lot of Central Banks, the US could now sanction anybody, anywhere in the world. A heavy hammer indeed!

 

So what does this have to do with Russian Collusion? Good question, and the right one. You see as we look to the scandalous acts of the justice system toward Trump, we are missing a lot of the surrounding machanations that have led us in one direction….conspiracy! This is really all about Russian sanctions and the CIA’s incessant desire to destroy Russia. Its not a coincidence that the authors of the Magnitsky Act are known to you…..Ben Cardin and yes, our friend……the “Hawk”, John McCain. The game the Hawks and the CIA are playing to destroy Russia is very dangerous. I would venture to say that Crimea, Georgia, Ukraine and so many other actions by Russia are a kind of retaliation to American sanctions and actions harmful to Russia and her oligarchs. These are not normal government leaders. They have access to armies, nuclear weapons, satellites and satellite weapons, and advanced delivery systems. Ever try to catch a snake in a corner? It will bite you….and you might die! This, my friends, is the game the CIA is playing.

 

During the campaign, Trump said many times he wanted better relations with Russia. We all, pretty much agreed that he was right…afterall, in 2016, terrorism was still front and center in most American households. We thought the US and Russia together could solve a lot of the world’s problems. But that’s not what the CIA wanted. In the summer of 2016, after he secured the nomination, the campaign was criticized for what was reported as chaos within the inner circle. “shake-up” after “shake-up” we were told was simply bad management….Trump didn’t know what he was doing. But Trump stuck to his idea that he wanted better relations with Russia. In June, he dumped Corey Lewandowski in favor of Paul Manafort, someone who had every reason to want better relations with Russia. Could this be why Trump brought him in? Then a lot of bad stuff came out about Manafort and he had to go. This was the exact time period the CIA hatched a plan to destroy him then have him removed from office. Russian Collusion was born.

 

ciaThis is why it is so hard to diagnose. We all agree Russia is not our friend. We also agree we must be careful when dealing with Russia. Trump believes we need Russia to help with NK, Ukraine, Syria, Iran…….all the big threats to peace in the world. The CIA, on the other hand believes we can solve those problems if Russia is destroyed. Both perspectives are probably correct and flawed. Trying to get Russia’s help in anything is not only difficult and costly, it could be very dangerous for our allies and friends. On the other hand, trying to crush Russia, could be even more dangerous to the world if we push them into war. Meanwhile, friends of the president are advising just how dangerous Russia is. They are breaking the sanctions on NK, they are breaking the sanctions on Iran, they are fighting back the only way they know how….using corruption. These so-called “friends” of the president are giving him information provided to them by the CIA.

 

Recently I uncovered an ancient interview of an Air Force colonel named Fletcher Proudy. It is from 1973…so its old. BUT! It is revealing because what he reveals is still going on and has grown to epic proportions within all parts of government. The interview was over an hour, but I cut out a 6 minute excerpt that explains what has happened to our government. Watch it before you go on, because everything else you read here has to be placed in the context of just how the CIA has taken over our government.

 

Now you should understand that the CIA has people all throughout the government, making policy decisions, and we don’t even know who they are or who they are working for. In the full interview, Prouty revealed that former secretary of state, Alexander Haig, was an early CIA employee, who rose through the system working for the CIA, attaining secretary status. Who knows, now, after 40 years, is taking orders from the CIA? When I wrote about what I believed to be connections between the Clinton Foundation and the CIA, even I thought I was crazy. But much of what I have found over the past few months, lead me to believe that that connection is real. That all the folks I discussed have one single mission….to destroy Russia. Russia has our foot on their throat. How would you expect them to react? By the way, this policy preference is great for a bloated defense industry thirsty for government contracts. The sanctions are crippling the oligarchs and that is crippling their already weak economy. All of this leads to what Russia has been doing to end the sanctions.

Natalia Veselnitskaya

It starts with the meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer that purportedly had dirt on Hillary Clinton in June of 2016. The meeting was reported as proof positive that Trump was colluding with Russians. But now we are learning that the meeting was orchestrated by elements within the government, working in concert with Russian friends.

For sure this is a very hard trail to follow, and I can’t be sure I have all the pieces yet, but I want to get what I now know out there while its fresh in my mind….because it is complicated. At the center of all of it is the Russian Oligarch, Oleg Deripaska. As you may recall, I wrote early about his friendship and relationship to Andrew McCabe that goes back to 2009. At the time, Robert Mueller was FBI director and Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. Mueller sent McCabe to Moscow to seek his assistance in acquiring the release of our CIA resource, Robert Levinson, who was being held in Iran. Deripaska had a deal made when Hillary Clinton pulled out, after Deripaska spent $25 million of his own money to get the deal done. Just why is unknown, but a quote from Deripaska in 2009, may reveal a possible reason: “They try to push me in a corner, maybe believing I would cooperate with them [with information]. There is a Russian interest I would never go through.”

Andrew McCabe

But the relationship with Deripaska continued. In September of 2016, McCabe, once again solicited Deripaska’s help. They met in London and Deripaska was asked to provide damaging information on Manafort. Coincidently, he was offered $25 million for that information. Manafort had been a lobbyist for Deripaska and also entered into a business venture with him that went south. Deripaska sued Manafort. In the United States, Deripaska was represented by Adam Waldman, who just coincidently was also the attorney for Christopher Steele, the author of the notorious dossier. Waldman has close ties to the Clintons and worked in the Clinton Justice Department.

Oddly enough, in 2013, Natalia Veselnitskaya, hired Fusion GPS to lobby against the Magnitsky Act (Russian sanctions). We recently found out that Veselnitskaya had closer ties to the Kremlin than she had revealed. She was taking direction from people at the highest levels within the Russian government. She was closely tied to Sergei Prikhodko, a long time Russian government deputy director,

prikhodko
Prikhodko

minister, and administrator, and a man very close to Putin. I recently uncovered a video, made by the main opposition candidate to Putin laying out a case of bribery and other criminal activity within the Russian government and particularly with Prikhodko. Its ironic, because it fits into everything I have layed out so far. To understand why, you must understand how Deripaska is viewed in Russia. He is a billionaire oligarch and a criminal. He has strong connections to the Russian Mafia. I have outlined in other writings the connections in Russia between the sitting government and the oligarchs. So….with that understanding, the video reveals a secret meeting between Drripaska and Minister Prikhodko. The video is concerned that it was bribery, because the meeting was held over three days on Deripaska’s yacht, cruising in Norwegian waters. Aboard the yacht were several hookers, one of whom, wrote a book about what was discussed at the meeting. (She is now in hiding) Sanctions were discussed and the name of Victoria Nuland…assistant secretary of state under Obama from 2013 until January of 2017, was mentioned as the one responsible for those sanctions. This meeting was in September of 2016, just weeks before the Trump Dossier was first written. So….the inference is that the US State Department, in the person of Nuland, was using Deripaska to create credible evidence that Trump was colluding with Russia. I said create….not find, purposely. The difference is the difference between law enforcement and treason.

aaaaa
Christopher Steele

 

 

Now I have to change gears and talk about Britain’s involvement in all this collusion. As you should know, Christopher Steele was a long time MI6 spy, stationed in Russia. He worked with another agent named Pablo Miller (an alias). Miller was assigned to be the handler for a Russian spy turned double agent……Sergey Scripal. When Steele left MI6 he started an intelligence gathering company called Orbis. This is the company hired by Fusion GPS to get dirt on Trump. When Miller left MI6 he immediately went to work for Steele at Orbis. Scripal was a defector in effect and was likely the source of much of the dossier information. I don’t know how it fits yet, but Scripal is the double agent that was reportedly poisoned by the Russians. A poison was used that only the Russians use….how convenient! Personally I don’t believe it for a minute. This poisoning has everything to do with this collusion plot, I just don’t know exactly how or why….yet! But I can say that after this poisoning of a single Russian agent, Britain went crazy on Russia. They invoked all sorts of verbal warnings, and imposed over reaching sanctions. Was this what was intended? British counterintelligence was also involved through the “Five Eyes” treaty. They were secretly surveilling the Trump campaign and who knows what they were hearing. I can only speculate that they learned Trump was planning to lessen the sanctions on Russia. This had to be stopped.

It has been reported that FBI agents went to visit Oleg Deripaska when he was in London in September of 2016. The agents were seeking Deripaska’s help to gain evidence that Trump was colluding with Russia. They offered him $25 million to help. He laughed and said the entire idea was ridiculous. They asked him to think about it. They then asked if he could help with information on Paul Manafort, that would show Manafort was working with the Kremlin to influence the election. Even though Deripaska had every reason to provide that information, he said there was no such collusion. I suspect this is when they turned to Steele.

 

Now, without the context here and in many other pieces I have written, it would certainly look like the FBI was just doing their job…..but placed in the context of offering Deripaska money, offering to pay Steele for his information, and ultimately using that information in a warrant request that was not able to be confirmed….still leads us right back to a conspiracy to CREATE evidence, not find evidence. Much of the left’s reporting, completely ignores this context.

The next part of the story is a more thourough investigation of “spygate”. It has been reported and talked about by Trump that “spies” were placed into his campaign and his transition….even his administration. I believe I have identified four such players. The first I have written about at length, but I have new information that further corroberates what I wrote in “Who Is Carter Page”.

Carter Page is an intelligence operative. There can be no other conclusion. Let me start at the beginning of his education. As I list these things, remember he is a professional “expert” in the energy industry.

Carter Page
Carter Page

 

Carter Page is 48 years old. He graduated from the Naval Academy in 1993. From there he was accepted into the Trident Scholar Program, reserved for the top 10% of his class. In that program, he completed a paper titled ”Balancing Congressional Needs for Classified Information”. After that, he moves on to Georgetown University where he completes a masters degree in “National Security Studies” in 1994. From Georgetown, he goes into active duty in the Navy, spending his last year there (1999-2000) stationed in Morocco working in Naval Intelligence. In 2000, he leaves the Navy and does a stint at the Council of Foreign Relations, where he goes to Russia to do “energy related research” in the Caspian Sea area. I could be wrong, but at this point, he is 30 years old, and I see no education related to energy. From that little research gig, he is handed a VP job working for Merrill Lynch in London, then soon travels to Moscow to set up Merrill’s first office in Moscow. According to the bio, he then completes an MBA from New York University in 2001. Surely that must be a typo. The next listing is his acquisition of a PHD from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in 2009. There he writes a dissertation titled: “transition of Asian countries from communism to capitalism” The dissertation is twice rejected by his advisors. Finally it is accepted when he receives new examiners….imagine that. Nowhere in his education can you find a hint of learning about the energy industry. But wait….there’s more. An energy expert in the field for over 20 years asked some questions. She went to Russia and talked to Page’s boss in Moscow. His name is Sergey Aleksashenko. He said this about Page:

“When it came to finance”, Aleksashenko says, Page “was not a specialist in any branches of finance or in any instruments. Judging by the drivel he spews on Russia, you can tell he doesn’t really understand the topic.”

Also talking with a co-worker, Artem Torchinsky, he said “mildly speaking, not competent in the field of energy.”

Then there’s this: After he left Merrill Lynch in 2008, he started his own, one man investment company, Global Energy Capital. On his most basic of websites he claims to have been involved in some major energy deals. He writes this about himself:

global energy

Well, it seems, not so much. Julia Ioffe that 20 year, experienced, energy expert asked some of her long time energy friends. Here’s what she wrote:
“So I called Ian Craig, the CEO of Sakhalin Energy from 2004 to 2009. But Craig said he didn’t know anyone named Carter Page. He was also surprised to hear about Merrill Lynch’s purported involvement in the deal. “I don’t think Merrill Lynch or anyone else was front-lining the negotiations, because it was all done at the highest level, because it was very political”

global energy 2

 “When I asked a prominent Western businessman, who has worked in the former Soviet Union for over two decades and who is said to socialize with Sechin and other members of the Russian elite, about Page’s claim to Bloomberg that he advised Gazprom on Sakhalin II, he said, “I rolled my eyes at that one.” (He, too, said he hadn’t heard of Page until Trump’s announcement.)”

So, bottom line is how he is portrayed in the media and even how he portrays himself just simply doesn’t jive with the facts about his background. Then I’ll add this: When we first heard the name Carter Page, it was that he was a possible Russian agent working on the Trump campaign. This is also how the Steele Dossier pictured him. It was often reported (and still is) that he was being investigated in 2013 by the FBI for possible Russian espionage. So what was he doing in 2013? In 2013, the FBI was investigating a Russian spy network in New York. The three Russian spies were trying to gather information on the American energy industry. Carter Page, working in NY at the time, became the hook of the FBI, to infiltrate the ring. The screen shots below are from a sealed pcomplaint/deposition document I found on-line. In the document the FBI special agent mentions “male-1”. This is Carter Page.

DOJ Complaint                DOJ complaint 2

 

This screen shot is an excerpt from that document:

Excerpt DOG complaint

It has been confirmed by Page’s own testimony before congress that he is male-1 contained in this document. The three men indicted in the case were Victor Podobnyy Evgeny Buryakov and Igor Sporyshev. The media has again and again reported that the Russians tried to recruit Carter Page. It just ain’t so! Look at this press release excerpt from the Justice Department after Buryakov was convicted.

DOJ press release

Male-1 is now referred to as UCE-1 which is short for UNDERCOVER EMPLOYEE! So in 2013 Carter Page was working undercover for the FBI to quash a Russian spy ring, not as an innocent victim or fellow conspirator. Now if all that’s still not enough to prove that Page was not an unsuspecting low level member of the Trump campaign, but an accomplise helping the FBI/CIA create evidence to frame Trump, then look at this one and a half minute clip I pulled from a Hannity interview. Hannity was the only one that ever asked Page the one question I wanted an answer to: “Did you work for the government?” Watch closely and tell me if you think he answered the question and was being honest. Watch how he quickly changed the subject.

 

 

 

All this information easily confirms everything I have written about Carter Page. He was used as the evidence that Trump was trying to soften the US position on Russia. He then became the legal cover to acquire surveillance warrants to listen to everything the campaign was saying and communicating. Trump was trying to change a long standing and on-going policy on Russia…..the CIA would have none of it! But Page wasn’t alone in this endeavor, he had lots of help.

richard burt
Burt

 

Lets move on to spy number two….Richard Burt. Almost none of you have heard of this guy, but he entered the campaign through Jeff Sessions. He was involved in writing Trump’s first foreign policy speech. In that speech, Trump put forth his desire to have better relations with Russia, which, inconceivably to many of us was roundly criticized by the main stream media. So who is Richard Burt? He’s been around government for a long time. You might want to refer back to the interview of Prouty above…..at least keep it mind as I talk about Burt. Burt graduated from Tufts University in 1971. That would make him right around 70. In 1977, he was selected as a fellow at the Naval War College. During his fellowship, he was assigned to the International Institute for Strategic Studies. Upon that appointment, he received a letter congratulating him on that “new assignment”.

stansfield turner letter

The letter was from Stansfield Turner, the then director of the CIA. Three years later he’s working at the state department, and by 1985, he’s ambassador to Germany. Right at the end of Reagan’s administration, he was made chief negotiator for the START talks with Russia, and remained under GHWB. This guys been in and around government his whole life…..I have been studying government my whole life and I had never heard of him until now. Do you realize how many people just like this are in government? Quietly working behind the scenes on life changing policy? Anyway, somehow, its not known how, he hooks up with the campaign through Jeff Sessions. This is important because Sessions is accused of recruiting Carter Page and Richard Burt. You see the stories you’ll read about Burt always….only…..mention he is a lobbyist for Alfa Bank….one of the biggest financial institutions in Russia. They never mention the bio stuff I’ve put down here. But just like Page…he’s worked in government for a long time and ends up in Russia…..with not a smidgeon of experience in banking on his resume. Then the fact that Burt knew Carter Page is evidence that Burt might have been the guy that had Page put on a list of policy advisors for Trump.

I have to stop here for just a minute. It is so clear to me now, what’s happening. Every move these spies make, seem to add to the intrigue that Trump and his campaign are colluding with the Russians and are trying to change US policy in favor of Russia. The main stream media reports it all exactly the way they have designed it to be reported. Meanwhile a very small few of us have placed it into context….again….its the subtle difference between “looking” for evidence and “creating” evidence. When the spygate story came out, the MSM was quick to point out that these guys were not spies, but investigators seeking the facts…in other words, plausible deniability. You’ve seen it before with Hillary Clinton…..every time she has been caught red handed….she has a plausible story to deny her actual intent. It’s a common practice in business, so the boss doesn’t face charges when his company is caught breaking the law.

But let’s move on, shall we? The third spy is Stefan Halper. I’ve written a lot about Halper and so have many others, but he’s another guy that’s been in and around government forever. He starts out in 1971 being placed on the US domestic policy council….an office in the White House. He’s there for two years before being placed in the OMB in 1973. In 1974 he moves to become an assistant to

stefan halper
stefan halper

the WH Chief of Staff, then moving over to the Congress to become legislative assistant to senator William Roth. Now I don’t know about you, but these moves seem odd to me. But put into the context of the interview with Fletcher Proudy above they make perfect sense. The next move for Halper, was to go into the Reagan campaign in 1980. There, a scandal occurred called “debategate”. It was discovered in 1983, that Halper had been involved in the theft of some of Jimmy Carter’s secret campaign documents. By 1983, he is deputy assistant secretary of state for political/military affairs, whatever that is! Upon leaving the Department in 1984, he remained a Senior Advisor to the Department of Defense and a Senior Advisor to the Department of Justice until 2001. At the same time he became Chairman and majority shareholder, of Palmer National Bank of Washington DC…..reportedly the bank of the CIA. I could go on, but if you’re not convinced who Stefan Halper is….let me be clear…..he works for the CIA. In fact, Halper still, to this day is being paid by the government and since 2012, all his records have been classified and sealed. One pay document was discovered in a FOIA request by a news outlet:

halper pay record

The key to understanding Halper’s involvement is to understand his relationship to Page. Two guys from very different backgrounds…who have no seeming connection meet just prior to Page’s acceptance to be on the Trump campaign. According to the NY Post the two met for over a year:

“Halper made his first overture when he met with Page at a British symposium. The two remained in regular contact for more than a year, meeting at Halper’s Virginia farm and in Washington, DC, as well as exchanging emails.”

The spying started in March of that year, but the investigation didn’t begin, as we’ve been told, until July. Once Page was placed onto the campaign, he then recommends Halper in an e-mail:

Page has tweeted a line from an email he says he sent to the campaign on July 16, 2016, regarding Halper. Halper — Page referred to him as the professor — “offered a range of possibilities regarding how he and the University might be able to help,” You can read more about this here: Trump campaign vet: Informant used me to get to Papadopoulos

The final spy in the campaign was not an American but a professor from Malta. How in the world does a professor from Malta get involved with a US presidential campaign?

mifsud
Mifsud

Yeah, I asked the same thing…..but you should see by now what’s going on. This professor is no professor. His name is Josef Misfud. He is actually part of British Intelligence…GCHQ to be specific. GCHG is the British equivalent to our NSA. GCHQ has been involved in this escapade from the very beginning. I have talked about it before, but our “five-eyes” treaty, allows Britain to spy on Americans and share that information with our intelligence agencies circumventing our 4th amendment. It’s a great system that nobody knows about that has been used for decades. That aside, Misfud’s involvement was a little more personal. I’m going to skip Mifsud’s background because its sketchy at best, but I do have high confidence that he does work within the intelligence community.

He’s another guy that the press initially reported was a Russian spy trying to influence the election. This has now been debunked, but still there are those that cling to that story. Mifsud first approached Papadopolous in March of 2016. Again, this seems to be the time the whole plot to create evidence of collusion began. After all, Papadopolous had only joined the campaign 2 weeks before. At the March meeting, Mifsud made known to Papadopolous that He might be able to acquire the deleted e-mails of Hillary Clinton. Two months later, Papadopolous boasted about this knowledge to the Australian Ambassador, who promptly reported it to American intelligence. Then, Papadopolous was lured to London, by Halper, under the guise of doing a research paper. All expenses were paid and he was given $3000. He traveled to London, met with Halper, and again, was offered access to the Hillary e-mails. Papadopolous was subsequently arrested. This episode, has been stated by the FBI as the reason for opening an investigation on Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. But if all these guys meeting with Papadopolous as early as March were working for our government…..did they find evidence or did they create evidence? Its odd that Papadopolous was just sentenced to 15 days in jail for his part. A very light sentence for a “Russian” spy. But even being light, he is an innocent man, bearing the burden for the whole plot against Trump.

George Papadopoulus

I simply have to stop here……it is so complicated that even I, as close as I am to it, just can’t understand all the connections. I really only told you this much, so you can see how all the names you have heard in the news all fit together to create one picture. That picture is that the people working in the US government before and during Trump have worked closer with the Russians than Trump could ever hope to do. And all these connections, led to…not the finding of evidence, but the actual creation of evidence to frame Trump and have him removed from office. It is and has been a relentless attack, and continues at this writing. Our only defense is to get this confusing information to the public.

Finally, I have high confidence, that Nunez, Gowdy, Goodlatte…and the rest….already know all of this and a lot more. As I said in my opening paragraph…..maybe its just too dangerous to our security to make it all public. We should notice that so far, hundreds of crimes have been committed….there is no doubt…..and no one has been indicted. Rather people have quit, retired or been fired. This only protects the system. The minute the first person is convicted and sentenced for a crime, and faces prison, the whole system would be in jeopardy. I know that many think that should happen, and maybe they would be right……all I’m saying is there’s a lot at stake in taking down our government.

“FOCAL POINT”

Old evidence as to how the deep state began and how it went wrong

deep state 1

For several years I have been writing about government corruption. Lately, however, I have written several pieces illuminating what I believe to be a coup taking place within the ranks of our intelligence community. To date I have uncovered many facts that point directly to it. In my piece “Who is Carter Page” and the following piece, “Who is Carter Page…Update”, I provide court documents that showed Carter Page actually worked for the FBI. I also followed the trails of Richard Burt, Stefan Halper, and others that had close ties to the CIA in “What Does A Coup Look Like” I can’t regurgitate all that here, you’ll have to go to the links to read what I discovered. The following information is predicated on the work mentioned above. If you have read this work then what you read here will make sense, if not I suggest you read that work first.

I think I have found a little bit of history, that may explain exactly how our CIA has gotten so powerful and, might I say, out of control. I found a 6 hour audio interview of an Air Force colonel named Fletcher Prouty. In 1989 he wrote a book titled “Secret Team”. In that book he revealed how he created a special program called the Tab 6 Organization, or “FOCAL POINT”. I would never expect you to sit through 6 hours of audio so I clipped out a 16 minute section that highlights a lot of what I want you to know. I hope you will listen to it before going on.

I will attempt to summarize more of it in this blog. But if you’d like to listen to the whole thing you can do that here. It’s in 4 parts, the link is to the first part, you should be able to find the others on Youtube.

prouty
Colonel Fletcher Prouty

Colonel Prouty served in the US Army Air Core beginning in 1941. He became a pilot and wound up in the newly formed US Airforce in 1947, where he became a colonel. He served years working with the also newly created CIA. In the interview he outlines at length, the history of the clandestine service, the necessity of such an organization, and especially the funding. To be as objective as possible, during his time in the spotlight, he was roundly criticized for what he revealed in his book, “Secret Team”. Congress conducted an investigation and their findings cleared the CIA of Prouty’s charges. However, Prouty was never reprimanded, charged with anything, or discharged. In fact he retired from the Airforce in 1964, months after receiving a medal of services from the joint chiefs. I note this because for months, this is what I concluded will happen with the investigations into the corruption within the DOJ, FBI, and Intelligence Community. They are just too powerful to be taken down. They will find a way to make it all go away. Prouty died in 2001.

Something I have stumbled across many times in my research, is just how all the money moves, where it comes from, and how its spent. I found that there is no published budget available, and this audio confirms that there is no accounting of where the money goes or where it comes from. Confirming what the colonel discussed, I could find a budget number for the IC but no other details. Overseas contingency Operations

The 2018 federal budget contains $73 billion for “national intelligence”. I did find something that may be related. When I was preparing for a speech I gave last year, I found that in the defense budget, there is a line item labeled “Overseas Contingency Operations” amounting to another $19 billion. I could find no information detailing what this money was for, but it continues to escalate, since it entered the budget in 2010. From this information, and what colonel Prouty has described, we can at least see there is a lot of money at stake, and not much detail as to how it is spent, confirming that there is no accounting, almost no oversight, and that it is up to a few unknown individuals as to just what that money is buying.

When I started this blog in 2016, I began to chronicle the corruption of the Clinton Foundation. It wasn’t long before I began to talk like a conspiracy guy, when I wrote that I believed the Foundation had strong ties to the CIA, and that its consulting firm Teneo, allowed the CIA to operate in plain sight all over the world. Even I thought I was crazy. But in that research, I saw that a scheme had been created to allow foreign “donations” to enter the Foundation through its Canadian arm called the CGEP. These donations, by Canadian law, are totally undisclosed. The CGEP can then donate in bundle form to the Clinton Foundation. This money, then, is used in countries all over the world in ways that are not fully understood. To be sure the Foundation has had problems with its reporting, with its tax returns, and with the countless accusations of theft and fraud from many sources. Is there a connection between the Foundation and the operations of the CIA? Are the donations by Saudi Arabia, Oman, the Emirates, and Bahrain, to the tune of hundreds of millions used by the CIA for operations in Yemen, Somalia, Libya, and throughout the middle east? Are our hands as clean as we are led to believe? With what colonel Prouty has outlined, I doubt that anyone can ever know. But what I take away from all the circumstantial information is an organization doing what it thinks it should do for America and the world….while desperately trying to keep an illegal and unconstitutional operation from being exposed…..or stopped! It also gives credence to the idea that the people who countenance and support these actions want no part of an outsider coming in to office and upsetting what they have built over decades. Trump is a threat to all of it….a threat like they’ve never encountered.

Just why is this audio interview important to what we are seeing in the Trump investigation on Russian interference? In my work “What Does A Coup Look Like” I chronicle the actions of two American “politicos”….Richard Burt and Stefan Halper. These two inserted themselves into the campaign months before any investigation had been reported as having begun. Why? As I wrote then:

stefan halper
stefan halper

So let’s take a look at just who this Stefan Halper is. He has a long career, going back to the Nixon White House. He served as assistant chief of staff for the Chiefs of staff, Alexander Haig, Donald Rumsfeld, and Dick Cheney, but more important to this story was his involvement in a CIA operation to provide information to the Carter Administration on the Reagan campaign.”

 

Now put Halper in the context of the Prouty recording. Who might Halper actually be working for?

Or what about Richard Burt? He worked under George Bush Sr. Before Bush was president, he was CIA director. From a Politico story speaking of Carter Page’s entry onto the campaign:

richard burt
Richard Burt

“One way to answer the question was to figure out how he even got on that list to begin with. One source suggested to me that Richard Burt, former U.S. ambassador to Germany, START treaty negotiator, and longtime lobbyist for Alfa Bank, was the nexus. It was Burt who helped draft Trump’s foreign policy speech in April, and had been advising the Trump campaign, via Senator Jeff Sessions, on foreign policy.”

And then there’s Carter Page. I outlined a strong case that Page was, indeed working for the FBI. You can read that case in the link above.

 

Let’s add another crumb to the story. Who is “Professor” Josef Mifsud?

Mifsud

A Maltese academic that has some very strange credentials. In an article by Margot Cleveland, in “The Federalist” she discusses the strange case of Josef Mifsud. She begins the article with this:

 

What if Donald Trump is wrong? What if the Russia collusion investigation isn’t a witch hunt? What if it was a set-up—from the get-go?”

What about Alexander Downer, the Australian diplomat that supposedly was “just trying to help” when he reported his conversation with Papadopolous to the FBI, which is what the FBI told us prompted the investigation.  If this is what prompted the investigation, why were these operatives baiting Papodopolous months before the investigation began?

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention two other things I have written about that come into better focus when placed in the context of Colonel Prouty’s interview. During last year’s Charlottesville tragedy, it just so happened that the entire crash and killing of a counter-protestor and the injuring of 19 others by a “crazed white supremacist”, was videoed by a man named Brennan Gilmore. His video was aired within minutes of the tragedy, by CNN, MSNBC, CBS, and all the usual suspects. What are the chances that Mr. Gilmore was an operative of the Intelligence Community.  Here’s what I wrote then:

“The one man who actually was literally in the right place at the right time recording the crash, the car, and its escape, in Charlottesville became an instant media darling at CNN. The day he made the video of the crash, it had barely been uploaded on social media, when CNN found him and interviewed him immediately after the crash. But that’s not the coincidence. His name was Brennan Gilmore. He was the Chief operations officer in the Central African Republic (CAR) in 2012, for the CIA. He was there during a bloody war pitting Christians against Muslims. We were on the Muslim’s side….we lost and Gilmore had to leave the CAR. He also worked for the failed democrat candidate for governor of Virginia, in 2016, Tom Pereillo. Not highly unusual that a CIA operative works for a campaign….no!…not at all! But the campaign did receive $375,000 from George Soros. That’s kind of strange. But it sure seems odd that a CIA agent finds himself in Charlottesville on the day that a violent clash occurs between white nationalists and ANTIFA, and just happens to be in the one spot where he can film it all, and immediately get on CNN, and another CIA agent is there to speak.”

One has to ask the question….was that part of the plan as well, to discredit Trump? Was the entire crash, mayhem, and subsequent non-stop media coverage, orchestrated by Brennan and the CIA in “collusion” with the DNC? You can see Gilmore’s account here in a video from MSNBC

Then there’s the worst mass shooting in American history in Las Vegas by a shooter, that more than a year later, we still have not been told what motivated this ugly act of senseless violence. But I can tell you,   Stephen Paddock, the shooter, owned a plane that he never registered a flight plan for the entire three years he owned it.

Stephen Paddock
Stephen Paddock

The identifying tail number was not listed in FAA files, and the number on the tail was listed in FAA records as a completely different aircraft. In Prouty’s interview, he reveals how the FOCAL POINT at the FAA was there many years, and rose to a top manager of the agency. Prouty even discusses that he believes that the assassination of JFK was a silent coup by the CIA, conducted for the sole purpose of stopping Kennedy from taking control of the CIA who had gone rogue in the Bay of Pigs episode. I for one, and none of you, want to ever believe our own CIA would do such things. It would go against everything we love about our country. But the evidence that the deep state exists and that the CIA is running the show is simply overwhelming.

I want to close by saying that so far…..nothing I have reported or have written has been yet disproved. To the contrary, each new story that comes out amplifies my findings. The CIA is in this up to their necks. They have operatives throughout government working for this, now, rogue agency. Do Brennan, Clapper, Comey, and their cohorts act like they want to preserve our democracy….save the nation from Trump, or rather, do they act like they are covering up something dark? You’ll have to judge for yourself. Only time will tell whether the people will be freed from this “Deep State”, or the Deep State will succeed in its efforts to keep it all secret and continuing, by sacrificing a few lambs to the slaughter.

The TIMELINE Part 2

Treason on Display

russian-flagBefore I get back to the TIMELINE, I think it of some value to understand Russia, once again. Why Russia? Of all the crimes the deep state could fabricate about Trump to have him removed from office, why Russia? Trump said during the campaign, that he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and his followers would still support him. But as true as that might have been, there is one crime that would be unforgivable….fixing an election. Democrats know all too well how conservatives feel about freedom, our laws, and especially our free and fair elections. Russia has always been the boogeyman. A cold, soul less enemy, which could be accused of any crime that would not only be believed, but expected.

oligarchs

 

Russia’s reputation is well deserved. I have spoken often about the so called Russian government. It is a government of, by, and for the oligarchs. Money and power drives these oligarchs, but unlike American business barons, Russians are extremely nationalistic. The interests of Russia are whatever the interests of the oligarchs are. Russia has been called a “petro giant”. That is, their economy rises and falls with the price of oil and gas. As true as that is, Russia is also a resource giant. Russia possesses rich reserves of iron ore, manganese, chromium, nickel, platinum, titanium, copper, tin, lead, tungsten, diamonds, phosphates, and gold, and the forests of Siberia contain an estimated one-fifth of the world’s timber. Rusal is the biggest aluminum and alumina producer in the world, and Russia contains the second largest coal reserves in the world. Russia also controls 20% of the worlds uranium supply and sells America 40% of all American enriched uranium. They are independent for almost all industrial resources. Each industry is ruthlessly run by one or more oligarchs, making whatever rules they need to make more money. The only hindrance to Russian behavior is they are forced to operate in an international market place. A market place that has rules and laws, and Russians are all too willing to circumvent those rules and laws whenever an advantage can be gained. They feign respectability, only to disguise their desire to gain more wealth and more power. They stopped being an ideological communist country in 1991, and today operate much more like a crime syndicate than a sovereign nation.

 

They meddle in American institutions on a regular basis. Evidence is everywhere, yet no one in government seemed to think it was a big deal until it was necessary to remove Trump. Witness this little tidbit: As I stated above Russia is an oil and gas “seller”. They need markets all over the world to sell their gross over production. So they spend millions in America on environmentalism, trying to create a faction of Americans that fight against domestic oil and gas production. In 2011 a shell company called Klein, ltd was created in Bermuda. Almost nothing is known of Klein, except their agents are the same two men that share a lawyer with Reuben Vardanyan, a Russian that sits on the board of Joule along with John Podesta. Klein donated millions to Sea Change. Sea Change is an American environmental group started by Nat Simons. Simons is a huge donor of Hillary Clinton. But Simons and Klein are the only two donors to Sea Change. Sea change spent millions running ads vilifying fracking in America. It is believed that Klein was a conduit for money from the Russian oil industry. By the way, Sea Change also donated hundreds of thousands to the Center for American Progress, The John Podesta lobbying firm. You can read more about Klein, Sea Change and Joule in my post titled Into the Weeds 11. This is just one example of how Russia meddles in American actions.

 

I explain these things for only one reason. Anyone that lives, works, or does business with Russians certainly knows how their system works, and who the players are. So to answer the question why Russia, one only has to have experience with Russia. Common sense would tell you that who has more experience with Russia than our intelligence community, State Department or our Department of Justice. Further, from my research, people like Hillary and Bill Clinton, John Podesta, Paul Manafort, Andrew McCabe, and many others in business and government have long-standing relationships with Russians, and know exactly what they stand for. Even Trump had a short stint working with Russians when he was pitching his Beauty Pageant…..but fortunately, he never got into bed with the Russians, even though they tried.

 

This whole episode of “Russian collusion” was fabricated. But the fabrication is plausible, and it’s why it has lasted so long. One of the reasons I included both the Hillary e-mail scandal with the Russian collusion story on the same timeline, is to illustrate just how they are connected. What I’m about to say next, is the reason I do what I do, spending hundreds and hundreds of hours researching and writing about corruption. What the timeline shows, and what will hopefully soon be proven, is how many government employees and officials actively worked to cover up, delay, withhold and eventually exonerate Hillary Clinton from any wrong doing, while at the same time, a plan…..an actual designed and implemented plan….to, at first, discredit Trump as a candidate, then to remove him from office, was created. It was all based on an intentional effort to falsely tie Trump to election tampering, using Russians as his co conspirators. This must never happen again and those that are responsible, must not only be purged from government, but be punished severely for their actions….otherwise it will happen again.
collusion timeline

 

Now….back to the TIMELINE. Hillary was truly careless. In fact her carelessness and, shall I say, recklessness, literally ruined the first part of the plan. Hillary set up her private server the minute she became secretary of state in 2009. According to one witness, it was set up for the express purpose of avoiding FOIA requests, and to keep all correspondence secret. The server was not discovered until 2013, after she left office. It was uncovered during the Benghazi investigation. This discovery tore open a full bag of corruption and lies, that just wouldn’t go away. Americans and congress were clamoring for an investigation. There was blood in the water, and it would have an effect on her coming campaign. As her e-mails leaked out, it became clear that some were classified. Months and months of speculation and angst, whether or not she would be indicted was occurring. All this was not revealed to the public until March of 2015. The entire time between when it was discovered by authorities and it being made public, the FBI and the Justice Department were working to mitigate the damage….parcing words, delaying requests from congress and even drafting an exoneration memo in advance of concluding the investigation, that had begun in February of 2016. The private texts from Strzok and Page, reveal how these two separate issues are connected. Page says to Strzok, the lead investigator of the private server,

 

“And maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace.” (This is clearly a reference to a Trump presidency).

He responds: “Thanks. And of course I’ll try and approach it that way. I can protect our country at many levels .…”

These and many others, show not only the bias, but the clear effort to help Hillary and hurt Trump. The FBI had become a political weapon, just like the IRS.

The investigation ended with FBI director Comey issuing a statement that no charges would be filed on July 5th, a mere 5 months after the investigation began. Contrast this with the Mueller investigation into Russian interference which began in May of 2017 and is still proceeding. It is clear that the second part of the plan was hatched as far back as December of 2015. Trump was way ahead in the polls and was a clear front-runner. This is when GCHQ began surveillance on the Trump campaign. In March the Podesta e-mails were hacked. In that same month, Page and Papadopoulus join the Trump campaign. If you believe what I wrote about Carter Page, In Who is Carter Page, you can see the plan unfold. They were FBI plants designed to connect Trump to the Russians. But Hillary couldn’t get out of her own way. In May, the DNC e-mails are hacked. By this time, the Hillary campaign, the FBI, and the Justice Department already know what damage is coming if the e-mails are made public. The plan to defeat Trump by tying him to the Russians is escalated. Page and Papadopoulus begin meeting and talking with Russians, a meeting is called with Don Jr. which ends up discussing Russian sanctions, and the Dossier is being drafted.

In July, the DNC e-mails are published by Wikileaks. Their worst fears have materialized. The FBI immediately opens an investigation, and in less than two months The Department of Homeland Security issues a joint statement that the entire Intelligence apparatus has concluded that the Russians were responsible for the hacking and the release by Wikileaks of the content. Every MSM outlet is focused on the hacking and the rumored Russian involvement….all being fed by leaks from the Justice Department. Notice that the ramp up of the Trump collusion story starts soon after the hacking became public. I contend that the Justice Department had to have something to give to the FISA court that could make their spying legal. They already had the information from GCHQ, but that information couldn’t be made public….someone would ask how they got the information. So, in June they requested a warrant from the FISA court. Without evidence, it was denied. This is when the Dossier was created, fabricated evidence used to acquire a warrant. In October, the warrant was attained. Carter Page, working undercover for the FBI would become the hook.

Once again, the corruption of Clinton would thwart their efforts to make the e-mail story go away. On October 7th the Podesta e-mails begin to leak out. This is only 1 month before the election. A week before that release, McCabe becomes aware of e-mails found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop….classified e-mails from Hillary Clinton. McCabe sits on this information for over a month, presumably to bury it until after the election. But just a week before the election it comes out. And in a remarkable, miraculous way, in just 4 days, the FBI is able to weed through some 60,000 e-mails and declare that there was nothing new, and once again closes the case, just two days before the election. But the damage had been done. The perception of corruption and cover-up took its toll. Americans viewed Hillary as a conniving, corrupt politician that wasn’t to be trusted. Trump wins. The plan now focuses entirely to having Trump impeached. Russian collusion was ramped up once again. The dossier would now be front and center to this plan. McCain gets involved, the press is handed the dossier, and preparations are made for a special prosecutor. The deep state goes into a full court press. 1 week before the inauguration Obama issues an EO giving all 16 intelligence arms access to raw data. This would be the signals data from GCHQ. The vast unmasking of American’s names begins. Everyone involved is scrambling to create evidence, to remove Trump.

I must say at this point, Trump and his team couldn’t possibly have been prepared for this onslaught of treason. No one could be. The entire weight of the federal government was working to remove Trump from office, before he ever got started. But Trump fought back. With just a few allies, he managed to inhibit much of what was being done. Many high officials left government on January 20th. He fires Sally Yates. Days after the inauguration, Admiral Rogers, a Trump ally, without authorization, travels to the White House. He informs Trump of the surveillance. But Nunez was the key ally.

By March the plan is falling apart. Nunez uncovered and exposed the plan, without even knowing it. He stumbled across the unmasking and immediately informed Trump and his team. In April, it is made public that GCHQ had a plan to spy on Trump Tower. A month later Comey is fired. But the deep state hasn’t given up. Mueller is appointed special council by Rod Rosenstein and the plan is pushed forward. The dossier is front and center in the investigation. But still, the information in the dossier cannot be proven. The wiretaps and surveillance continue, but allies in the Trump administration are exposing the people working on the plan. By late July, and through the rest of 2017, one after another the people in the Mueller investigation are “reassigned”, demoted, or quit, all the way up to Andrew McCabe’s ouster in January of 2018.

Finally, Mueller announces the indictments of 13 Russians who meddled in the election. I firmly believe that this was a total capitulation by the deep state and a way to make it all go away without causing further damage to the deep state. I read an interesting quote yesterday from a related story. The author stated “The more they kept digging, the closer they got to themselves.” If I am correct about how this plan was carefully hatched and orchestrated to remove Trump from office, then it is treason. The trouble is, I just can’t see a means to effectively pursue it. When people are demoted, resign, retire, or are fired, something is being hidden from the American people. These actions protect the institutions and especially those at the highest levels. I’ve seen it before. The cover-up has begun. The difference between this and Watergate is, during Watergate we had a national press corps that acted as a check to government. Today, even though there are plenty of alternate media, the MSM acts as an arm of the democratic party and will not only not expose this corruption, it will work to further the cover up. But I am hopeful this time will be different. It will only take one good man brave enough to speak the truth publicly and expose it all. That is the deep state’s worst nightmare. That one man (or woman) could unravel the entire institution, which in my opinion is exactly what is needed. Someone like Jack Ryan!

Who is Carter Page….Update

Fabrication of evidence

 

Carter PageI recently posted an expose on how Carter Page was actually working for the FBI in 2013 as an “undercover” employee. I have come to now believe he was on loan from U.S. Naval Intelligence, due to his newness and obscurity, not to mention his experience in Russia. I further pointed out that he was used by the FBI as a plant, into the Trump Campaign to further the narrative that Trump was colluding with Russia. In several articles I have read, the Intelligence Community was actively working against Trump in order to create evidence to be used for his removal from office. This is virtually unprecedented.

Many months ago, I reported on the man that shot the video that immediately was discovered, by CNN, of the car that ran over people in Charlottesville, VA. and was the first to be interviewed. His name was Brennan Gilmore. He was a former deputy chief of operations for the state department in the Central African Republic while a civil war was being orchestrated by the CIA. In other words he was a “spook” working for the Intelligence Community. He just happened to be in Charlottesville, standing in the right place, with his camera pointed at a slow rolling car, just before it sped up into the crowd. And before the video was even uploaded, CNN picks him out of the crowd to interview, where he provides the perfect comments about a peaceful counter protest and the racist terrorist, Trump supporters. What a shocking coincidence!

Then there was the candidate for president, Evan McMullen. He tried to block Trump in the Utah primary, and just coincidently worked for the CIA. At the same time another republican lobbyist, who released a naked picture of Melania 4 days before the election, later sold her lobbying firm and went to work for Teneo, a Clinton linked consulting firm with strong ties to the intelligence community.

And let’s not leave out what I uncovered about Stephen Paddock, the Las Vegas gunman that we know almost nothing about. He owned a plane, for three years, that was not registered with the FAA. A flight plan was never filed the entire time he owned it. When ownership was transferred, the new owner never used it either, and that new owner had an interesting background as well. There are many other examples of the Intelligence Community interfering in our election and our daily lives, but the story of Carter Page, is by far, the most egregious. Of course, most will just say ha, ha, ha, conspiracy stuff on parade! But even if these stories are simply conspiracy theories, are we to believe the Intelligence Community doesn’t have operatives working on subterfuge throughout America? Does anyone remember stories from the Vietnam War era? How FBI agents would infiltrate anti-war groups to disrupt their protests? Do you believe the FBI hasn’t infiltrated ANTIFA or BLM? We expect them to do it. But what we don’t expect is for those same spooks to infiltrate a presidential campaign in order to unseat an elected president.Spy vs Spy
Let me restate the premise of this update.

Carter Page is an employee of U.S. Naval Intelligence working undercover to CREATE evidence for the purpose of impeaching a president of the United States.

He first joined the campaign of Donald Trump as an unpaid (volunteer) advisor on national security. Someone placed him on a list of possible advisors on energy policy. He supposedly had written articles on the subject and had worked in Russia on energy issues for Merrill Lynch. By the way, we really do need to find out who put him on that list. So Carter Page is asked to be on the campaign, and asked to attend the original meeting of new staff in March of 2016. He fails to attend that meeting, and never attended any other meetings. He was on the campaign, but by all reports did nothing for it. Nobody on the campaign knew who he was or had any dealings with him. This is very important, because he is a very unimportant part of the campaign. Shortly after accepting the position, he needs to go to Russia to give a speech, a commencement speech at a school of economics, in July. This is step 1. Going to Russia in the middle of a presidential campaign.

Step 2, is the lengths he went to, to get permission from the campaign to go, which, do to his lack of importance, wouldn’t need permission. He first asks J.D. Gordon, a retired Naval officer heading up foreign policy for the campaign. Gordon tells him it would be a bad idea. He then e-mails Corey Lewandowski and Hope Hicks, the number one and two people at the campaign. Neither person knows who he is. Hicks never responds, Lewandowski says he can do what he wants, but not to represent the campaign. What you need to see, is the trail he is creating….a trail to Russia. He has to link the trip with formal permission.

Chess Wallpapers (1)

The content of the speech is step 3. Remember, this is a commencement speech. But the speech is very critical of past US foreign policy, implying that Trump would change it. It focuses on his hope that a closer relationship between the two nations might be possible with Trump in the White House. From the speech: “Washington and other Western capitals have impeded potential progress through their often hypocritical focus on ideas such as democratization, inequality, corruption, and regime change,” Page also suggested the United States should ease economic sanctions imposed on Russia following its 2014 incursion into Ukraine and Crimea. Sanction removal would be a common thread in the charges by critics of Russian collusion by Trump. The point here is that he is in Moscow speaking with authority about foreign policy while being on the Trump campaign, but yet he has no authority or authorization to do so. How does that look?

Next…step 4….He is interviewed by the Russian news agency Novosti, where he will not answer what his plans are in Moscow and would only say that he will “meet with several business leaders and academics, before he leaves on Tuesday”. Implying importance, yet being seemingly secretive. But later interviews with Russian officials, they responded that they did not know Mr. Page and were unaware of any meetings that took place. So the impression was left that Page met with “high ranking” Russian officials and it was reported that way.

spy vs spy 2

And finally, step 5…upon his return he sends an e-mail to the campaign: “I’ll send you guys a readout soon regarding some incredible insights and outreach I received from a few Russian legislators and senior members of the presidential administration here,” As if he has some vital information from people in Russia. But when interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee, he said it came from the TV he watched while in Moscow. A clearly ridiculous answer all to make it look like he is covering up something. All the things I have outlined here are found in the Trump dossier, orchestrated to create proof that a tie between Trump and the Russians existed. The way to prove it is to find out if he was working for the FBI as he did in 2013. And if that is found to be the case….its treason! Of course, as you will find in a thousand stories on line, that these very examples are proof positive that Trump colluded with Russia….just as it was all planned to do.

Who is Carter Page?

Is America under assault by its own justice department?

Over the course of the last few days I have tried to understand what prompted the FBI to surveille the Trump campaign. In order to understand why, the motivation is important to understand. In the course of reading countless stories, it became clear that the Trump/Russia collusion story had been hatched immediately after the DNC e-mail accounts were hacked into. Soon after the Wikileaks release of those e-mails, the IC, almost in unison announced that the accounts had been hacked by the Russians. However, the DNC refused the FBI access to their servers and they never became part of the evidence….or so we were told. This was in July of 2016. Prior to this revelation, the Russians had never been mentioned as a threat to our elections. It is plausible and understandable to believe that we are always watching what the Russians are doing….we are enemies! In 2012, a small Russian spy ring was detected and surveilled. This ring consisted of three individuals: A Russian citizen working in the US as a banker, Evgeny Buryakov, and two Russians connected to the UN Russian Mission posing as trade representatives….Igor Sporyshev and Victor Podobnyy.

Evgeny Buryakov
courtroom sketch        Evgeny Bryakov

Their mission was to gather US economic intelligence and information helpful to relieve sanctions. This is where it gets really interesting. These three Russian spies were not very good. They tried to recruit Americans that could give them American economic data. In recordings acquired by the sting by the FBI they were very sloppy. According to an article in the

guardian

Guardian written in early 2014, that I found, the person that the Russians recruited worked for the FBI. It says he was an “employee”. It does not indicate he was an agent of the FBI. It does not mention his name. But guess what? By all accounts, from the Guardian article, this FBI “employee” was Carter Page. Although the article does not mention his name, it reveals details that since have been disclosed by Mr. Page. And I keep hearing that the FBI was “looking” at Carter Page since 2013. But yet a warrant to surveille Page isn’t sought until July of 2016. Page was never a target of the FBI, until he became the tool needed to surveille the Trump campaign. In the so-called Steele dossier, it discusses the “employees’” involvement with these spies in 2013.

russian collusion

The dossier goes on to say Igor Sporyshev revealed that they recruited “a male working as a consultant in New York City.” Page worked in New York City. The Guardian article then provides another clue from that time:

In 2013, the FBI employee began providing Sporyshev with the binders containing purported industry analysis he wrote, supporting documents, and “covertly placed recording devices,” prosecutors wrote. Page wrote industry analyses.

Please read the entire Guardian article to understand this sting operation. Next, the NYT did a piece on this story. They wrote:

“To record their conversations, the F.B.I. inserted a listening device into binders that were passed to the Russian intelligence operatives during an energy conference, according to a former United States intelligence official.” Carter Page spoke at an energy conference.

The NYT goes on to say: In June 2013, the F.B.I. interviewed Mr. Page, who said he had first met Mr. Podobnyy at an energy symposium in New York earlier that year.

Then in an interview with Newsweek, Carter Page said this:

“as I explained to federal authorities prior to the January 2015 filing of this case, I shared basic immaterial information and publicly available research documents with Podobnyy…….nothing more than a few samples from the far more detailed lectures I was preparing at the time for the students” [That he wrote] he delivered at New York University in 2013.

So understand this conclusion. The employee working for the FBI is meeting and recording three Russian spies in 2013, in order to catch them spying. The undercover employee is giving them information about the energy industry. Carter Page is doing the same thing with the same 3 people at the same time. Is that the biggest coincidence of all time or what? And if there was any doubt left as to who Carter Page is….read his Bio:

Page graduated in 1993 from the United States Naval Academy; he was a Distinguished Graduate (top 10% of his class) and was chosen for the Navy’s Trident Scholar program, which gives selected officers the opportunity for independent academic research and study. During his senior year at the Naval Academy, he worked as a researcher for the House Armed Services Committee. He served in the Navy for five years, including a tour in western Morocco as an intelligence officer for a United Nations peacekeeping mission. In 1994, he completed a master of arts degree in National Security Studies at Georgetown University. After leaving the Navy, Page completed a fellowship at the Council on Foreign Relations and in 2001 he received an MBA from New York University. In 2000, at the age of 29, he became a vice president of Merrill Lynch in Moscow.

What a good break!

I believe from this evidence I can conclude, with certainty, that Carter Page was and still is working for the FBI or for some other intelligence agency, under cover. He was not caught up in the prosecution of the Russian spies because he was part of the investigating team. It’s strange that after scouring the web, there is no information concerning just how Carter Page got to be on the Trump campaign team. Who placed his name on a list of possible advisors? This would also be an important thing to know. But as near as I can tell he joins the team in late June of 2016, right around the time the DNC e-mails were released. Almost too shortly after he joins the campaign, he goes to great lengths to seek permission to travel to Russia. No one seems to know him, but he e-mails the campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, and several other high-ranking campaign officials. They tell him he can do what he wants, but not as a member of the campaign. He then goes to Moscow to give a speech, but also meets with a high ranking Russian official. He openly admits all this. When you use the filter that he is working for the FBI, you begin to see, that in the hundreds of articles on-line, he is  trying to link the Trump campaign to the Russians. You see everything in a different light. Every move he made seemed to try to create this illusion. Then when he’s asked to testify, he admits everything but decries it is all harmless and he did nothing wrong. When I look at the events and his remarks in this context, it is easy to see a totally different picture emerge. I guess you can say it worked as it was designed, because you can find a thousand articles on line using Carter Page as a link between Trump and Russia. Just look at what Adam Schiff released on November 8, 2017: the top Democrat on the House intelligence panel, Adam Schiff quoted from an e-mail from Carter Page to the Trump Campaign “I’ll send you guys a readout soon regarding some incredible insights and outreach I received from a few Russian legislators and senior members of the presidential administration here,” You see, Schiff is trying to say Page is a Russian spy and he has information for Trump from the Russians. But change the point of view, and you see how that e-mail may have been sent to actually be used to prove Trump/Russian collusion, where there was none. He’s making it look like the campaign is working with Russia. Another crumb on the trail Page is trying to create. Now run all that through the filter that Page is working for the IC to implicate Trump in Russian collusion. Folks, I have read the accounts of conspiracists decrying a silent coups, but if my conclusions are accurate, then that’s exactly what’s going on here. If Carter Page, indeed works for the FBI, and was involved with creating the Trump dossier, as I believe he was, then this story takes on a whole new form. Somebody knows that Carter Page worked under cover. But who? If that fact could be determined, then this whole scandal becomes treasonous.

Another piece to this puzzle is in other accounts from Carter Page. He claimed he spent numerous hours at the Trump Tower working for the campaign. Yet know one remembers him being there. He didn’t have a badge to get in, had no space or office to go to, no scheduled meetings….nothing. Then why would he offer that tidbit? You see the FISA law is pretty specific as to how a warrant can be used to surveille Americans. 50 US code of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) U.S. Code › Title 50 › Chapter 36 › Subchapter I, defines something called “any person”:

B) Any person pursuant to the direction of an intelligence service or network of a foreign power, knowingly engages in any other clandestine intelligence activities for or on behalf of such foreign power, which activities involve or are about to involve a violation of the criminal statutes of the United States.

 Notice that the law is very broad when it defines “any person”. Carter Page would have been the best person to use for a surveillance warrant. Further, if Page hung out at the Trump Tower as he claimed, would it be a leap to believe that the warrant could have included the Trump Tower? I think not. Then recall the unmasking that was done by Susan Rice and many others.

As much as I simply hate to do it, I submit to you, that there is a better than even chance that Carter Page, while working for the IC was planted in the Trump campaign to not only create the means for spying on the campaign and later the president, but also to create the evidence of collusion in order to have him impeached. Now I can’t possibly put in your mind all the things I have read and learned in order to glean these conclusions. And maybe I haven’t explained it well enough to justify these conclusions. I can only repeat…..when you read a story about Carter Page, think of him as an intelligence officer and the story will take on a new meaning.

I hope the memo written by Congressman Devin Nunes, and recently released, is just the beginning. In my view, Nunes is a hero and may be the Thomas Paine of our generation. But there needs to be more. There are so many people in our government that are fighting us, fixing America, it will be an almost insurmountable task to stop these people. At this point in history…it is imperative that we hold the House and pick up the 9 seats we need to have a super majority in the Senate. If we can’t do that, our revolution may be over.
