Young: "The Internet is a giant spying machine right now": Windows 7 Law Enforcement Sensitive Guide & more Lawful Interception compliance manuals: Welcome to the Machine!

Got BitLocker? Feel a bit r00ted???

201002282254.jpg

[It was later posted that this full Windows 7 law enforcement pack was actually originally posted on the very cool newer site PublicIntelligence.net: Microsoft Windows 7/Vista Advanced Forensics Guides for Law Enforcement | Public Intelligence ]

In a continuation of the excitement around Microsoft's confidential Law Enforcement guide hitting Cryptome.org, now several more Law Enforcement Sensitive PDFs about Windows 7 have been posted, including a lot of detailed information about examining BitLocker drive encryption and potentially cracking it: "We can also see the Recovery Key ID number" and a series of hex addresses, it says (win7-bit-spy.pdf p 67).

With all the guides Cryptome has posted for PayPal, MySpace, AOL, SKype, Yahoo! & others, one can certainly get a clearer picture of implementations of government demands, but also these training manuals created by the companies clearly illuminate their own intent. Also, who else has had this information? Isn't it deceptive marketing to peddle products with such backdoors or intended weaknesses?

More on Sibel Edmonds: "Turkey and America: the Corridors of Intelligence and Geopolitics" aka "Turkey's Con Game: US Officials On the Take, FBI Provides Cover"

I'm reposting this in full because basically it cuts right through the Case. Globalresearch.ca sez: "The CRG grants permission to cross-post original Global Research articles on community internet sites as long as the text & title are not modified. The source and the author's copyright must be displayed." Click our nice image for more on the Sibel Edmonds case. I don't have a formal introduction to what it's all about on that page, but this story should help quite a bit. Our best to Mr. Stanton for a useful item for all. This was also posted on Let Sibel Edmonds Speak! blog operated by Lukery. The alternate title was "Turkey's Con Game: US Officials On the Take, FBI Provides Cover" on Lukery's site. We'll have more background on this soon, as well as a better collection of links, background and info on this most weird of post-9/11 (and 9/11-linked) DC espionage episodes.

Turkey and America: the Corridors of Intelligence and Geopolitics by John Stanton

Global Research, April 5, 2007

“Turkey is not as politically stable or as secular domestically as they would have you believe”, said one long time observer of US-Turkish relations in Washington, DC. “The Turks do not have a large community across the United States like, say, the Armenians and the Greeks who have been here a long time. Because of this you see a very large Turkish presence inside Washington, DC”.

Lacking a legitimate national grassroots organization, Turkey has built a notable presence inside the corridors of power in Washington, DC by spreading cash around and buying direct access to key US decision makers in and out of the US government. It all seems legitimate enough: campaign donations/junkets for members & staff of the US Congress (FMOCs); consulting fees to former FMOCs, US military generals, US State Department employees; and promises of billions of dollars in contracts to US corporate representatives operating in Washington, DC. With so much money chasing politicians, consultants and contractors of all stripes, there's bound to be some corrupt and even criminal activity. No seasoned observer of politics anywhere is completely surprised at the occasional and well timed conviction of a white collar criminal.

But Sibel Edmonds' seems to have stumbled into the really big white collar crime ring that ties an old George Bush I family friend, Brent Scowcroft—and his American Turkish Council--in with former US Ambassador to Turkey Marc Grossman; members of the Turkish Caucus in the US Congress; Douglas Feith, (once had his security clearance revoked and was rumored to be watched by the FBI) who once greased arms sales to Turkey back in the 1990's, is a famed Zionist, formerly of the Pentagon and now at Georgetown University in Washington, DC; the Bob Livingston Group (Livingston a FMOC), who has gotten very wealthy via Turkish business; and Joe Ralston the former USAF general whose bank account has blossomed after joining Lockheed Martin and being put on the Turkish payroll as a counter-Kurdish insurgency expert. Finally, former Speaker of the US House Dennis Hastert seems a natural part of the ring whose claim to fame may become that he kept debate on the Armenian Genocide Resolution off the House floor during his tenure and was the subject of a Vanity Fair piece.

Many of us have written on Ms. Edmonds' case and after so many years find it infuriating that the FBI continues to shut her up behind a State Secret Privilege holding. Taking recent events at the Department of Justice as guides, it is probably safe to say that Ms Edmonds' is being silenced because of some sort of State Embarrassment Privilege. The Department of Justice, of which the FBI is a subsidiary, is seeing its credibility quotient crushed under the weight of Attorney General Albert Gonzales' arrogance and the adolescent antics of his staff. Meanwhile at the FBI, Director Mueller is under fire for the antics of his staff and its abuse of PATRIOT Act provisions to catch common criminals, not “terrorists.”

A few thoughts come to mind here. First, the FBI apparently was illegally monitoring subjects associated, somehow, with the Edmonds' matter and, perhaps, saving a savory scandal for the right time. J Edgar Hoover, former FBI Director, was skilled at that sort of subterfuge. If the illegal monitoring allegation is true, that's another damaging blow to the Justice Department and the US justice system.

Second, Ms Edmonds must have stumbled upon the payola racket that Turkey had been running and there were so many big US names involved in so many high places that to air that laundry would damage US credibility not so much abroad, as right here in the USA. Imagine one one news day FMOCs, active members of the US Congress, US military personnel, US State Department people, US Justice Department folks all get nailed for being in on the Turkish gig or at least knowing about it. And what could be worse than the FBI, DEA and CIA knowing about it? Foreign intelligence agencies, of course.

Third, if it is true that Turkey is not as secular or as politically stable as its proponents in Washington, DC and Ankara say, then the whole Turkey-as-US strategic partner and would-be European Union partner would be one of the better smoke and mirrors acts sold to the US public, and the world, in recent memory.

The reality is that Turkey remains a distant and unknown entity for most Americans, although if Ms. Edmonds were allowed to speak freely it may become a well known country. It's a product that is difficult to sell to citizens here in the USA as a strategic necessity, as a wonderful vacation land, or as a dynamic society full of business opportunity. The harsher side to the story is that Turkey has threatened to invade Northern Iraq/Kurdistan should it declare its independence, or if an upcoming referendum on oil-rich Kirkuk goes the Kurds way; the Turks brutally repress their Kurdish population; free speech and tolerance of government critiques are in short supply; and, in reality, the Turkish military holds the keys to power in Ankara.

Lastly, according to the observer of US-Turkish relations, “It seems to me that the government in Ankara, Turkey is always working on propaganda, on slogans. Trying too hard. If you visit Turkey you'll notice everywhere you go that there is a picture of Turkey's founder Attaturk. It reminds me sort of like Soviet times where you'd see a picture of Lenin everywhere. The Turks spend too much time worrying about petty resolutions like those recognizing the Armenian Genocide.”

Lukery: Sibel Edmonds and the Untellable story of AIPAC (America Israel Public Affairs Committee)

Note from HongPong: I have talked with Lukery and he told me a while ago that I could repost material from his various nifty and methodical blogs about the Sibel Edmonds case, which remains stuck mostly in a dormant state. Sibel just announced she was willing to get slammed for the gag order if a national network will air her case. Tellingly, no one wants to bother so far. All of this was posted on Lukery's blog Let Sibel Edmonds Speak a while ago.

Nice work Lukery. Also be sure to check out the ever-solid BradBlog.com for GOP voting machine hacking and other whistle-blower stuff.

Please look at my special basic collection of stuff about the case too.Though indeed that area of this site could be much better.
*******

Last week, former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds, announced that she was willing to tell everything that she knows if any of the major networks are willing to give her airtime, without airbrushing the essence of her case. Bradblog will have an update on the progress, or lack of it, next week.

Of course, Sibel would prefer to testify under oath in congress, but apparently our Democratic Congresscritters (I'm looking at you, Waxman) don't care about the treason, bribery, and corruption that has hijacked US foreign policy.

Meanwhile, last week we learnt that the judge in the AIPAC case has allowed subpoenas to be issued to 15 current and former high-level officials. Many of us are excited about the prospect of the trial - but Sibel assures us that the case, as it stands, is just the tip of the iceberg.

'AIPAC' is at the core of Sibel's case, and Sibel’s story needs to be heard - either in Congress, or in the media.

****

Those of you who have been following Sibel's case will be familiar with the American Turkish Council (ATC) - the 'mini-AIPAC' that (ostensibly) exists to promote Turkey's military interests in the US.

As it happens, the ATC is a creation of AIPAC (and other Israeli lobbying interests) - and there is significant overlap in the membership, goals and activities of both AIPAC and the ATC. This is perhaps not surprising given the long-standing tri-lateral military (and military 'defense' spending) relationship between the three countries. In fact, Sibel refers to AIPAC and the ATC as 'sister organizations.'

Not only were the ATC and AIPAC 'sister organizations,' they also had something else in common: there have been 'sister investigations' into both organizations. And of course, both investigations uncovered serious criminality at the highest levels of the US administration - Congress, the Pentagon and the State Department.

Sibel described the overlap in this interview with Antiwar's Chris Deliso in 2005:

SE: Look, I think that that [the AIPAC investigation] ultimately involves more than just Israelis – I am talking about countries, not a single country here. Because despite however it may appear, this is not just a simple matter of state espionage. If (Patrick) Fitzgerald and his team keep pulling, really pulling, they are going to reel in much more than just a few guys spying for Israel.

CD: A monster, 600-pound catfish, huh? So the Turkish and Israeli investigations had some overlap?

SE: Essentially, there is only one investigation – a very big one, an all-inclusive one. Completely by chance, I, a lowly translator, stumbled over one piece of it.

But I can tell you there are a lot of people involved, a lot of ranking officials, and a lot of illegal activities that include multi-billion-dollar drug-smuggling operations, black-market nuclear sales to terrorists and unsavory regimes, you name it. And of course a lot of people from abroad are involved. It's massive. So to do this investigation, to really do it, they will have to look into everything.

CD: But you can start from anywhere –

SE: That's the beauty of it. You can start from the AIPAC angle. You can start from the Plame case. You can start from my case. They all end up going to the same place, and they revolve around the same nucleus of people. There may be a lot of them, but it is one group. And they are very dangerous for all of us.

In 2004, Knight Ridder's Warren Strobel and Jonathon Landay confirmed that the 'AIPAC case' was much more serious than anything that has seen the light of day so far:

"Several U.S. officials and law-enforcement sources said yesterday that the scope of the FBI probe of Pentagon intelligence activities appeared to go well beyond the Franklin matter.

FBI agents have briefed top White House, Pentagon and State Department officials on the probe. Based on those briefings, officials said, the bureau appears to be looking into other controversies that have roiled the Bush administration, some of which also touch Feith's office.

They include how the Iraqi National Congress, a former exile group backed by the Pentagon, allegedly received highly classified U.S. intelligence on Iran; the leaking of the name of CIA officer Valerie Plame to reporters; and the production of bogus documents suggesting that Iraq tried to buy uranium for nuclear weapons from the African country of Niger. Bush repeated the Niger claim in making the case for war against Iraq.

"The whole ball of wax" was how one U.S. official privy to the briefings described the inquiry."

Keep in mind that the FBI operation against AIPAC et al goes back to at least 1999 - so they were watching all of the relevant characters throughout this period. In fact, you'll note that Strobel refers to "the FBI probe of Pentagon intelligence activities" - apparently the Pentagon, particularly Doug Feith's Office of Special Plans, was itself the 'target' of the investigation.

Investigations shut down.
What happened to that Pentagon investigation? Why aren't Doug Feith, Richard Perle and others in prison? I can only presume that this particular investigation was shut down, just like so many other investigations into these criminals.

In a recent interview Sibel described some cases that were shut down. The case referred to in this excerpt is apparently an Israeli counter-intelligence case:

"There are other cases we are not hearing about that I'm aware of that have to do with similar cases, maybe having to do with other countries. For example, again this is another relevant case, an outside case, the Larry Franklin case, with the espionage case that they pursued with AIPAC. And what the American public doesn’t know is the fact that there were other counter-intelligence operations within the FBI that obtained far more information not only limited to Mr. Franklin, that were similarly shut down in 2000 and 2001 because they ended up going to higher levels and involving maybe way too many people, US persons. I’m talking about individuals who are breaking the law, misusing the trust and abusing their power, and in some cases I would even say engaging in treason."

And here Sibel describes the same thing taking place within Turkish counter-intelligence:

Now the same thing was about to take place with Turkish counter-intelligence. In the main portion of the documented — wiretapped or paper — operations that I translated verbatim (not only for the Washington Field Office but also for the Chicago and New Jersey offices), they were obtained before 2001. If we were to put a date on it you’re looking at end of 1996 to 2001. Now, in 1998 and 1999, there were so many pieces of evidence of U.S. individuals’ involvement. We’re talking about people with official positions, whether they were in the State Department or the Pentagon or the U.S. Congress that forced the Justice Dept, and the good agents who did the right thing, they started a parallel investigation that targeted these individuals who were possibly committing acts of treason.

However, as I was told by first-source agents I was working with, this was put on hold in 1999 because President Clinton was then going through the Lewinsky scandal. After the current administration came into power and after I was working there, the agents were told to shut down.

Similar allegations
Sibel isn't the only person who claims that investigations like this have been shut down. For example, in Kill The Messenger, ex-CIA agent Phil Giraldi says:

All of these people (Richard Perle, Doug Feith) have been investigated by the FBI at one point or another for passing secret information to Israel. In no cases, were any of them convicted. The prosecutions were dropped… in my opinion because of political pressure not to get into this kind of case that involves Israel and espionage.

Similarly, Laura Rozen and Jason Vest reported in Prospect:

"Since the Pollard case, U.S. intelligence and law-enforcement sources have revealed to the Prospect that at least six sealed indictments have been issued against individuals for espionage on Israel's behalf. It's a testament to the unique relationship between the United States and Israel that those cases were never prosecuted; according to the same sources, both governments ultimately addressed them through diplomatic and intelligence channels rather than air the dirty laundry. A number of career Justice Department and intelligence officials who have worked on Israeli counterespionage told the Prospect of long-standing frustration among investigators and prosecutors who feel that cases that could have been made successfully against Israeli spies were never brought to trial, or that the investigations were shut down prematurely."

Sibel often makes the same point. The FBI agents in the field are doing a great job, however:

The people who made that decision (to shut down the investigation) were not the Justice Department or the FBI, and that’s what I try to emphasize all the time — they were pressured, they were forced by higher-up forces within the Pentagon and the State Department.

That is, the guilty parties at the Pentagon and State Dept have the power to stomp on investigations into their own illegal activities. And as Sibel says, these people were involved in criminal activity, not just simple state-based espionage.

As reported in Vanity Fair:

"In fact, much of what Edmonds reportedly heard seemed to concern not state espionage but criminal activity. There was talk, she told investigators, of laundering the profits of large-scale drug deals and of selling classified military technologies to the highest bidder."

Once we understand that simple fact, this report from Washington Post makes more sense:

"Reports on the investigation have baffled foreign policy analysts and U.S. officials because the Bush administration and the government of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon already cooperate on intelligence matters and share policy views. Despite some rocky moments, the relationship has been among the United States' closest in both policy and intelligence sharing since Israel was founded almost six decades ago."

Current AIPAC case
As I've demonstrated, the current 'AIPAC' case involving Keith Weissman and Steve Rosen receiving information from Larry Franklin barely scratches the surface of the underlying crimes that these investigations have yielded, and even this very limited case may never see the light of day. In an apparent greymail attempt, the defense has called 15 current and former government officials to testify - including Condi Rice, Douglas Feith, Stephen Hadley, Elliott Abrams and Richard Armitage. In fact, in Judge Ellis' opinion last week, he gave the admistration this offer ultimatum:

"The government's refusal to comply with a subpoena in these circumstances may result in dismissal or a lesser sanction"

Surely the administration won't refuse that offer ultimatum.

There was, however, one interesting piece of news in the judge's ruling last week. In footnote 8, page 7, Judge Ellis wrote

"The government does not object to the issuance of subpoenas to Franklin, Satterfield, Pollack, or Makovsky."

JTA, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, reported, without elaboration, that:

"The government did not raise objections to the four subpoenas for officials who were identified in the indictment."

If this is correct, then one of the mysteries of the case has apparently (nearly) been solved. In the original indictment, the unindicted co-conspirators were addressed using codewords. We now know that Ken Pollack was USGO-1, David Satterfield was USGO-2 but we didn't know the identities of two others: "DoD employee A" and "DoD employee B."

"DoD employee A" played the trivial, and quite possibly innocent, role of telling Rosen that Larry Franklin was an expert on Iran. On the other hand, "DoD employee B" was a willing participant in at least one espionage-related meeting with Rosen, Weissman and Franklin.

Michael Makovsky, one of Larry Franklin's co-workers at the OSP is apparently either "DoD employee A" or "DoD employee B." If he is "DoD employee B," why hasn't he been indicted?

One Remaining Mystery
Given all this history, the one remaining mystery is how on earth this current 'AIPAC' trial has come as far as it has. Laura Rozen and Jason Vest reported:

This history (of shutting down investigations) had led to informed speculation that the FBI -- fearing the Franklin probe was heading toward the same silent end -- leaked the story to CBS to keep it in the public eye and give it a fighting chance.

Three and a half years later, it appears that the fight is over. Larry Franklin has pled guilty, but even if the AIPAC case goes forward, most of the underlying crimes, and most of the criminal perpetrators, will go unpunished.

One Last Chance
Sibel has evidence of the underlying crimes. She knows who the criminals are. She wants to testify under oath in Congress but the spineless Democrats, particularly Henry Waxman, want her to keep quiet about these issues.

In an act of desperation, Sibel has bravely offered to tell all, at great personal (both legal and physical) risk, if one of the major networks will air her story. Given the history, Sibel's offer is the only chance we'll have to hear any of these remarkable allegations.

Waxman can be contacted in DC:(202)225-3976 and LA:323 651-1040. The toll free Capitol switchboard number is 800-828-0498. See if you can shame him into doing something.

The blog We Can Change The World has put together a list (with contact details) of journalists and media outlets that have (partially) covered Sibel's story in the past. If you contact those journalists, perhaps they'll be willing to at least write about Sibel's offer - which might put pressure on either Waxman or one of the networks to actually take up the offer.

Internet Radicalization Thought Crimes, Centers of Orwellian Excellence & Strategic Communication Laboratories: What Modules are

Internet Radicalization Thought Crimes, Centers of Orwellian Excellence & Strategic Communication Laboratories: What Modules are in an OpCentre?
Featuring Rep. Jane Harman's "Thought Police" Internet Radicalization and Crush These Meddling Kids Bill!
Norm Coleman co-sponsors Thought Crime Bill.

Here is what MnBlue said: Norm Coleman co-sponsors Thought Crime Bill | mnblue:

The bill has two distinct parts. The first establishes a Commission. The second establishes a think tank of sorts to study how better to hunt down Arabs, suppress internet democracy, perform datamining of raw data obtained via illegal wiretapping and such noble efforts.

Like NSPD51 which is so vaguely worded that President Bush could suspend the Congress, Courts and Constitution over anything he deems is a national emergency, this bill is so vaguely worded that an administration without any ethical principles (namely the Bush Administration) in cahoots with one or more ethically challenged Senator(s) or Representative(s) (and we certainly have plenty of them) might manipulate this bill to do things like I've described if it ever became law.

From my reading of this bill, they could drag anyone in front of The Though Crimes Commission. Imagine questions like this: "Have you ever aided and abetted the terrorists by saying anything opposing the war on terrorism?" Also, the word force is not defined. Couldn't a boycott be considered force? What about Ghandi, Martin Luther King ... they used force, didn't they? Might this allow for a Joseph McCarthy of the 21st century?

Furthermore the Thought Crimes Think Tank might need to analyze trends spotted by the Bush Administration's illegal wiretapping. Since the capability does not currently exist to do datamining of terrabytes of data, they might need to reinstitute the NSA's Total Information Awareness program under their aegis. After analyzing these trends they might find alarming results and need to begin analyzing in real-time. After all the bill states that our current law enforcement and intelligence aparratus are not capable of preventing homegrown terrorism (see Finding 6). Might they then spawn a Thought Police to stop the evil-doers before they strike?

Getting worried? Have no fear, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are here. This is the same leadership which caved on FISA. Oops, I guess not. This bill passed stealthily through the House resulting in a 404-6 vote for it. Oops. I guess Nancy Pelosi was part of some back room deal that allowed this blighted child of repression to slink through the House. The House voted to suspend the rules (2/3 majority required) and cut short any debate. Sadly, our entire Minnesota delegation in the House voted for it. We never heard about this when it happened on 10/23/07 because the debate was cut short.

What is this really about? That's what I ask myself every day.

Right now there is definitely some kind of insane Orwellian conspiracy involving setting up things called "Centers of Excellence" that would basically spy on all of American society in every possible way, then calculate which points on the system count as terrorists, thus employing hordes of Control Freak Cabal minions and creating the RFID SPP Total Control Grid along the NAFTA Superhighway (which is evidently 1.5 blocks from my house).

I first discovered the evidence of this from documents pried from the Minnesota Department of Transportation. See July's post @ my day job, SuperRondo? MnDOT, NASCO, and I-35 NAFTA Superhighway plans | Politics in Minnesota.

This is intense! What is it, in short:

Also released [from MnDOT] were NASCO public relations documents describing how to spin media coverage, and MnDOT emails about media incidents. Oddly, NASCO distributed PR material disambiguating themselves, the cross-border Security and Prosperity Partnership, and even the Council on Foreign Relations, among their materials sent to Minnesota.

Interestingly, NASCO discusses an advanced systems integration platform called NAFTRACS (North American Facilitation of Transportation, Trade, Reduced Congestion and Security Project), which would be developed by SAVI, a subsidiary of Lockheed Martin, which already handles shipping container logistics for the Pentagon's Global Transportation Network. The NAFTRACS "integration pilot program will automatically gather, correlate, and interpret fragments of multi-source (Radar, AIS, & GPS tracks, Open Source, Intelligence, Watch list & Law Enforcement Report, CCTV, Bioterrorism sensors) data together into one collaborative portal-based environment, an [sic] ultimately a Total Transportation Domain Awareness Center of Excellence." The NASCO Center of Excellence and Total Domain Awareness Center would be the "centerpiece of the corridor coalition; will engage in studies, development and deployment activities; will seek funding & investment for a broad array of projects relevant to both the corridor and of current & national significance," including "the US-Mexico-Canada Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP); Hurricane Katrina/Rita impact; Cross-border trade facilitation and information sharing; inland ports network; counter-terrorism and security." In the last couple PDF files, the development of NAFTRACS through Lockheed Martin's advanced military-oriented research facility in Virginia is discussed at length.

This is what I am talking about. Basically cloning the military-industrial complex's tracking system and forcing it down our throat. Lockheed will always know where you are. They really love their "customers."

There was some speculation that big media events like 9/11 are manipulated in government psy-ops media centers, where video can get patched through and thus the stuff can be inserted or whatever. Evidently a UK company Strategic Communication Laboratories has OpCentres for just this purpose:

Wow! Strategic Communication Laboratories : Company overview

Strategic Communication Laboratories is the leading supplier of strategic communications, information operations and public diplomacy to governments and military clients around the world.

The company is the exclusive licence holder of the BDi strategic communication methodology, which is the most advanced and effective persuasion methodology for social and group communication.

The company provides solutions mainly for defence, internal security and foreign affairs governmental departments, but also provides solutions for tourism, financial markets & investment and health programmes.

SCL operates throughout the world and is based in London, UK. The Head Office employs about 30 people and there maybe as many as 2000 specialists employed on projects worldwide.

The company was formed in 1993 and produced a number of projects for the Behavioural Dynamics Institute, which was undergoing development trials for its methodology. The successful outcome of the trials led to the permanent association of SCL and BDi.

Today SCL is not only the unique licence holder of the BDi methodology, but more importantly, after 12 years, it is the only team fully trained in its operation.

Strategic Communication Laboratories : What makes SCL stand out

Strategic communication differs from orthodox commercial communication (such as advertising, public relations, etc.) in that it concentrates on the behavioural outcome of the communication not just concepts such as brand awareness.

For example, commercial advertising might encourage an audience to hold very favourable attitudes about a Ferrari, but that does not necessarily lead to all those with a favourable attitude buying a Ferrari. Conversely, cigarette smokers may be fully aware of the dangers associated with smoking, but will carry on anyway.

Broadly speaking, commercial communication is measured by attitudinal results (considering one brand better than another) and strategic communication is measured by results (changes in actions).

SCL uses the BDI methodology, which is the most powerful communication methodology to influence group behaviour.

Even though much greater effort and resources must be applied at the front end (as compared to commercial advertising), the resultant outcomes are far more effective and predictable.

Consequently, the SCl solutions are used primarily where the communication outcomes are critical.

Strategic Communication Laboratories : What is an OpCentre?

An Opcentre is a command facility for strategic communications.

In this always-ready environment researchers can identify target audiences using highly advanced statistical models, strategists can orchestrate campaigns using the most effective scientific methods and media producers have access to innovative production techniques.

These units of expertise combine to create one of the most dynamic and influential ‘weapons' in the world.

An Opcentre puts influence, control and power back into the hands of the government and military, giving them greater power to influence the enemy in time of conflict and enhanced access to their citizens during a crisis. For instance, an Opcentre can be designed to override all national radio and TV broadcasts, allowing the government and military to communicate with the public as the need arises.

The Opcentre is a formidable tool for Homeland Security, Conflict Reduction, International Public Diplomacy and un-mediated Government communications.

What can the OpCentre do?

  • Launch a powerful psyop campaign against an engaged enemy
  • Engender support within the national community for proposed military action
  • Re-engineer foreign perceptions to potentially avert conflict altogether
  • Develop national resilience and behavioural compliance for homeland security issues
  • Produce powerful public diplomacy campaigns for political, economic, military issues
  • Maintain an ‘always ready' public communication command centre for critical incidents
  • Develop more effective public information campaigns for social and health issues

***********

Override ALL communications? So that's why everyone thought those holograms hit the WTC! Hah! Square the Quad Laser kids!

The idea is that they can keep building these things, and then make a lot of money declaring all the weird kids terrorists who need to be spied upon.

Frankly I don't know what the big picture is, but this is part of Rep. Jane Harman's "Thought Police" Internet Radicalization and Crush These Meddling Kids Bill, or whatever the fuck it is.

Everyone, I am planning a seriously large effort to expose this stuff and present in a way such that even the dumbest Baby Boomer can understand what this police state bullshit is all about.

Heads Up to Quigley's Apex: Bank of International Settlements (Former Nazi Bank) developing Gold/SDR global fractional reserve currency with IMF, Federal Reserve

From the shadier side of Switzerland comes the bank where the Nazis put plenty of dental gold they pillaged... Now with another gold-related operation for the 21st Century!

cbp01.jpg

One of the shadiest institutions in the world, the obscure Bank of International Settlements, was initially set up in 1930 to handle Germany's reparation payments after World War I, and like so many other geopolitical disasters it got rolling in the Treaty of Versailles.

As the Nazis began to operate, they used it to launder gold, under the leadership of Nazi Ministers of Economics Hjalmar Schacht and Walther Funk. Soon enough the national gold treasury of Czechoslovakia got thrown into a BIS-controlled vault. Your IG Farbens, Harriman Brothers, etc., major Allied and Axis industrialists and financiers crossed financial operations here -- and it was always partially owned by the Federal Reserve Bank.

In a complex scheme involving Keynes and the other players of the time, tragically BIS wasn't dissolved after World War II, and instead became a central venue for central bankers to meet and operate, kind of a banker counterpart to the G7, G10 or G20.

Since then, many German globalist schemes have unfolded. From the geopolitics of the German-centered EU to the new European Central Bank (ECB), these institutions have grown a lot since World War II.

The BIS has cruised along in a unique geopolitical track. At some point the BI somehow "sold itself" to other major central banks, and more recently acquired a very large amount of gold. Generally not in the news, the BIS discreetly announced recently it was trading for 346 tons of gold from some mysterious buyer, perhaps from the sad government of Portugal.

The BIS operated in tandem with the International Monetary Fund (founded 1947), which itself is developing a new meta-currency called Special Drawing Rights or SDRs. IMF FactSheet on SDRs:

The SDR is an international reserve asset, created by the IMF in 1969 to supplement its member countries' official reserves. Its value is based on a basket of four key international currencies, and SDRs can be exchanged for freely usable currencies. With a general SDR allocation that took effect on August 28 and a special allocation on September 9, 2009, the amount of SDRs increased from SDR 21.4 billion to SDR 204.1 billion (equivalent to about $ 321 billion).

The role of the SDR

The SDR was created by the IMF in 1969 to support the Bretton Woods fixed exchange rate system. A country participating in this system needed official reserves—government or central bank holdings of gold and widely accepted foreign currencies—that could be used to purchase the domestic currency in foreign exchange markets, as required to maintain its exchange rate. But the international supply of two key reserve assets—gold and the U.S. dollar—proved inadequate for supporting the expansion of world trade and financial development that was taking place. Therefore, the international community decided to create a new international reserve asset under the auspices of the IMF.

However, only a few years later, the Bretton Woods system collapsed and the major currencies shifted to a floating exchange rate regime. In addition, the growth in international capital markets facilitated borrowing by creditworthy governments. Both of these developments lessened the need for SDRs.

The SDR is neither a currency, nor a claim on the IMF. Rather, it is a potential claim on the freely usable currencies of IMF members. Holders of SDRs can obtain these currencies in exchange for their SDRs in two ways: first, through the arrangement of voluntary exchanges between members; and second, by the IMF designating members with strong external positions to purchase SDRs from members with weak external positions. In addition to its role as a supplementary reserve asset, the SDR, serves as the unit of account of the IMF and some other international organizations.

 

Basket of currencies determines the value of the SDR

The value of the SDR was initially defined as equivalent to 0.888671 grams of fine gold—which, at the time, was also equivalent to one U.S. dollar. After the collapse of the Bretton Woods system in 1973, however, the SDR was redefined as a basket of currencies, today consisting of the euro, Japanese yen, pound sterling, and U.S. dollar. The U.S. dollar-value of the SDR is posted daily on the IMF's website. It is calculated as the sum of specific amounts of the four currencies valued in U.S. dollars, on the basis of exchange rates quoted at noon each day in the London market.


Here is the price chart of the last few days currencies / SDRs.

Picture 103.png

The IMF is trying to extend the use of SDRs as a base for new credit instruments. However what does the IMF have backing it up, compared to states (and their capturable revenue/taxation streams?)

 

aeschenplatz03.jpg

If the BIS and the IMF made a mishmash of SDR and gold loans, or perhaps issue partially gold-backed SDRs, then they can create a global fractional reserve currency. Since this currency would be based on both gold and the major currencies, perhaps China and Russia would be happy with it.

The Federal Reserve System, in its role as the apocalyptic doom bringer, is of course helping make sure that everyone will easily be able to dump their dollars for quasi-gold SDRs. Global trade will leave America behind with a finally shattered currency, Fed as the final executioner, finally ending the dollar's role as the global "reserve currency".

Then the Bank of International Settlements reigns supreme as the lodestone of a whole new reich of geopolitik, able to centrally tweak the availability of credit in order to whipsaw the general public out of all their wealth.

But that's just a riff on some funny story I read on the notable anti-corruption & smack talkin site Zero Hedge...gold swap 4_0.jpg

Gold Swap Signals the Roadmap Ahead by Gordon T Long of Tipping Points. Let's take a dive & borrow his awesome flowchartz:

 

What we are seeing is the emergence of another funding structure based on the SDR - SDR’s that have a degree of gold backing.

The BIS now has a total of 12.4% of its deposits (32B SDR) in the form gold deposits. Note #11 to the BIS financial statements states: “Gold deposits placed with the Bank originate entirely from Central Banks. They are all designated as financial liabilities measured as amortized cost”.

ARE WE SETTING THE PINS UP FOR AN ALTERNATIVE RESERVE CURRENCY?

Are we moving towards the BIS and IMF being fractional reserve banks that will create money & credit - a reserve currency that will satisfy Russia and China with an element of Gold backing? A bank such as the BIS could easily assume this role (if it hasn’t already) as could the IMF with possible banking charter adjustments.

The chances are high that this is the roadmap we will find ourselves taking. Like all banking that started as Gold backed you could expect that in this case the little gold backing that starts the process is quickly diminished so a limitless money machine could begin functioning. The gold backing would likely be an initial requirement by Russia and China. The partial gold backing would lend credibility to the acceptance and a possible reserve currency alternative and eventual establishment as the global reserve currency.

Ben Davies the CEO of Hinde Capital in London and a player in the gold market suspects (12:40) we may have a modified form of swap emerging. There is the possibility that the commercial bank is in fact a major gold bullion bank. Some of the bullion banks have major short positions on gold that far outstrip the annual physical production of gold. The disconnect between physical and paper gold along with rising gold prices is likely causing serious strains on their balance sheet. As Davies points out the gold may be transacted from a central bank to the BIS through a bullion bank while the gold physically remains with the originating central bank; is classified as ‘unallocated’ at the BIS but in fact remains on the books of the bullion bank. It effectively is double accounted for. The increase in gold would allow gold prices to be pushed lower, which in fact is what has been happening. A careful reading of the BIS financial statements shows more clearly the accounting for such a transaction.

There can be little doubt that the Gold Swap is with a central bank where the physical gold remains. The transaction isconsidered a deposit at the BIS (liability) but has been lent to a commercial bank (likely a bullion bank) as a loan (asset). The question is only why a bullion bank needs to borrow this quantity of gold, remembering it never gets the physical gold because it remains at the originating central bank. The reader is encouraged to read the Financial Policy notes #4,5, 6, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 19 within the BIS Financial Statement for a clearer understanding along with Notes to the Financial Statements #4 and #11.


The BIS is known as the central bank to the central bankers.
The BIS may equally be referred to as the Central Gold Bullion Bank to the Gold Bullion Banks.


The March 31 2010 Financial Statement of the BIS shows 43.0B SDR’s of gold or 16.6% of total assets. According to note #4 to the BIS Financial Statements: “ Included in ’Gold bars held at central banks” is SDR 8,160.1 million (346 tonnes) (2009: nil) of gold, which the Bank held in connection with gold swap operations, under which the Bank exchanges currencies for physical gold. The Bank has an obligation to return the gold at the end of the contract.” It is very important to appreciate this note is pertaining specifically to BIS ‘assets’ which in the case of banks are what the reader would consider ‘loans’. Under Financial Policy notes #5 to the Financial Statement the BIS is clear that under banking portfolios “all gold financial assets in these portfolios are designated as loans and receivables”. Separately, but very interestingly the BIS additionally states “ the remainder of the Banks equity is held in gold. The Bank’s own gold holdings are designated as available for sale”.  

SPECIAL DRAWING RIGHT (SDR)

If problems get worse for Portugal, as possibly the global economic climate worsens, then the gold may never legally belong to Portugal. The contracted swap terms at some point may simply reclassify it a net zero sale, if Portugal fails to return the cash portion of the swap. The BIS would have 346 tonnes of gold and Portugal the $14B of Euros it has long since spent to solve a 2010 problem. By then Portugal likely would need even more loans in whatever currency would replace a crumpling or possibly extinct Euro.

Up until 2004 the BIS denominated its financial statements in Gold Francs. It now has made a major shift to denominating itself into Special Drawing Rights (SDRs). The calculation is exactly the same as used for the IMF. The SDR is operating as a defacto currency.

CONCLUSION
The advantage of this approach is:

  1. Leverage: Compounding money creation between banks
  2. Partial gold backing: Present BIS levels of 12.4%
  3. SDR: Offers a basket of currencies approach versus a single currency dependency.
  4. Former Communist bloc regime backing: China and Russia would likely support this approach for a number of reasons, which they have already expressed as short comings to the current global reserve situation.
  5. Reserve Currency: The SDR approach offers a migration path from today’s US$ reserve currency to an alternative bank reserve currency to a future global reserve currency.

*****

Well that's pretty serious, eh comrades? We paid Ben Bernanke a salary (sort of) as someone who's supposed to steward America's economy, not give the Germans and others a "migration path" away from the US as global reserve currency. What the hell are these people doing?! And when did this BIS emerge as a Key Component of the plan?

Someone warned us a solid 44 years ago. What did that grizzled chronicler of Anglo-American power relations, Carroll Quigley, a firm believer in Cecil Rhodes & the Roundtable Group, describe in 1966 with Tragedy & Hope: A History of the World in Our Time?

Pg. 324: the powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole.

This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations.

Each central bank, in the hands of men like Montagu Norman of the Bank of England, Benjamin Strong of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, Charles Rist of the Bank of France, and Hjalmar Schacht of the Reichsbank, sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world.

..... This book is too good. Wandering off from BIS, for a moment, Quigley's giving us a clear view of Wall Street's Control of the American Left via Gatekeepers & Foundations, it also makes fun of The New Republic later on as well so let's include :)

The significant influence of "Wall Street" (meaning Morgan) both in the Ivy League and in Washington, in the period of sixty or more years following 1880, explains the constant interchange between the Ivy League and the Federal government, an interchange which undoubtedly aroused a good deal of resentment in less-favored circles, who were more than satiated with the accents, tweeds, and High Episcopal Anglophilia of these peoples

Pg. 938: Because of its dominant position in Wall Street, the Morgan firm came also to dominate other Wal1 Street powers, such as Carnegie, Whitney, Vanderbilt, Brown-Harriman, or Dillon-Reed. Close alliances were made with Rockefeller, Mellon, and Duke interests but not nearly so intimate ones with the great industrial powers like du Pont and Ford. [Because] ... of the great influence of this "Wall Street" alignment, an influence great enough to merit the name of the "American Establishment," this group could ... control the Federal government and, in consequence, had to adjust to a good many government actions ... [which they had secretly supported ]. The chief of these were in taxation law, beginning with the graduated income tax in 1913, but culminating, above all else, in the inheritance tax. These tax laws drove the great private fortunes dominated by Wall Street into tax-exempt foundations, which became a major link in the Establishment network between Wall Street, the Ivy League, and the Federal government.

More than fifty years ago the Morgan firm decided to infiltrate the Left-wing political movements in the United States. This was relatively easy to do, since these groups were starved for funds and eager for a voice to reach the people. Wall Street supplied both. The purpose was not to destroy ... or take over but was really threefold: (1) to keep informed about the thinking of Left-wing or liberal groups; (2) to provide them with a mouthpiece so that they could "blow off steam," and (3) to have a final veto on their publicity and possibly on their actions, if they ever went "radical." There was nothing really new about this decision, since other financiers had talked about it and even attempted it earlier.

Pg. 939: The New Republic was founded by Willard and Dorothy Straight, using her money, in 1914, and continued to be supported by her financial contributions until March 23, 1953. The original purpose for establishing the paper was to provide an outlet for the progressive Left and to guide it quietly in an Anglophile direction. This latter task was entrusted to a young man, only four years out of Harvard, but already a member of the mysterious Round Table group, which has played a major role in directing England's foreign policy since its formal establishment in 1909. This new recruit, Walter Lippmann, has been, from 1914 to the present, the authentic spokesman in American journalism for the Establishments on both sides of the Atlantic in international affairs.

Pg. 950: There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the ... Right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other groups, and frequently does so. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960's, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. I have objected, both in the past and recently, to a few of its policies (notably to its belief that England was an Atlantic rather than a European Power and must be allied, or even federated, with the United States and must remain isolated from Europe), but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known.

More fun notes on BIS from Bilderberg.org.

Lately I've found this site to be fairly awesome: Institute for the Study of Globalization and Covert Politics includes the post-1960s permutations of the Anglo establishment, including the Pilgrims Society, the truly amusing World Wildlife Fund 1001 Nature Trust / Club, and Le Cercle, all of which feature similar styles of operation to BIS type globalist schemerz....

******

Anyway as usual getting drawn far afield. There are any number of other sources about BIS, IMF and SDRs, but people in general have never heard of SDRs. Better get wise before these children of Schacht develop their fractional global gold SDR and use the Federal Reserve to wipe out America's wealth. Don't say Quigley and I didn't warn ya!

Jundullah: Baluchi ally of the United States... And Al Qaeda... in covert Iran war

A farfetched scenario: American geopolitical wizards pour millions in arms and organizational infrastructure into a band of nomadic raiders in the Central Asian highlands, who firmly promise to fight America's enemies and uphold truth justice and etceteras. It turns out that the militant band are a bunch of retrograde fanatics who use their newfound power to build armed networks all over the region, offering mercenary services to the highest bidder and undermining America's local allied leaders.

Obviously nothing like that has ever happened, (besides the entire 1980s) and it appears today that it won't happen again. Today Washington denies arming and training Jundullah, a band of fundamentalist mercenary lunatics supported by heroin traffickers and shady elements of who-knows-what, all in the service of bombing Iranian military personnel and stirring up trouble. A fourth-generation warfare (4GW) scenario all around.

At times like this, only the sage wisdom of the CIA's top 1980s coordinator, Milt Bearden, really makes sound sense. A 2004 note from him about the region below....

In the big overview of the Iran CIA-sponsored tribal rebellion I posted last week, I'm glad to have inserted a small reference in about Jundullah, a Baluchi-centered Sunni fundamentalist group that apparently desires an independent Sharia-dominated Baluchistan across Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan. Wikipedia lays it out:

Jundullah (Army of God) is a militant Islamic organization that is based in Waziristan, Pakistan and affiliated with Al-Qaeda. It is a part of the Baloch insurgency in Pakistan and in Iran's Sistan and Baluchistan Province. The goal of the group is to form an independent and united Baluchistan under a hardline Sunni Islamist government similar to the Taliban regime in Afghanistan. Though Baloch-dominated, the group claims to represent all Sunnis in Iran, regardless of ethnicity. Iran and Pakistan have designated it a terrorist organization and banned it. The militant Sunni group operates inside Iran's southeastern border. The group poses a threat to the country's Shi'ite clerical regime, which already faces a crisis with the West over its nuclear ambitions. The Iranian government has accused the United States of supporting the Sunni group as a destabilizing element against Ahmadinejad's regime. The Jundallah deny any link with the United States.

Evidently the CIA has been giving them a ton of money to blow up shit in Iran and start the next world war, as ABC News reported just about the same time I made that post:

The group, called Jundullah, is made up of members of the Baluchi tribe and operates out of the Baluchistan province in Pakistan, just across the border from Iran.

It has taken responsibility for the deaths and kidnappings of more than a dozen Iranian soldiers and officials.

U.S. officials say the U.S. relationship with Jundullah is arranged so that the U.S. provides no funding to the group, which would require an official presidential order or "finding" as well as congressional oversight.

Tribal sources tell ABC News that money for Jundullah is funneled to its youthful leader, Abd el Malik Regi, through Iranian exiles who have connections with European and Gulf states.

Reuters and other news agencies are following the case. Other stuff about the case on PrisonPlanet with reasonably backed-up sources. Basically the CIA payoff to Baluchis is historically consistent with typical British and western schemes to meddle in the region: If you offer gold, nomads will go a-raiding for you until you stop paying. These operations probably started when the US Special Forces arrived in Afghani Baluchistan shortly after the 2001 invasion.

Of course, the Congress has approved no such ethnic proxy war schemes, but since these are brown people, their fate is left to the discretion of our wise executive branch.

Really complicated geopolitics there, but Alexander the Great had it all figured out. Here is the scenario of the Pashtuns, the Baluchis' northeastern neighbor who make up the core of the Taliban. While Baluchis and Pashtuns are different in important ways, the tone here from Milt Bearden is pretty accurate: Bearden was the CIA guy who handed out a billion dollars in the 1980s, and he knows what the fuck he's talking about:

The Pashtuns of Afghanistan : Alexander the Great also got in trouble here

....In the 4th century B.C., Alexander the Great fell afoul of Pashtun tribesmen in today's Malakand Agency, where he took an arrow in the leg and almost lost his life. Two millennia later the founder of the Mogul empire, Babur, described the tribesmen of the area now known as Waziristan as unmanageable; his main complaint seemed to center on his inability to get them to pay their taxes by handing over their sheep, let alone stop to attacking his armies. A couple of hundred years later, in the middle of the 19th century, the British experienced disaster after disaster as they tried to bring the same Pashtun tribes to heel, particularly in the agencies of North and South Waziristan. In 1893, after half a century of jockeying for position with Imperial Russia in the "Great Game," the British administrator of the northwest of Queen Victoria's Indian Empire, Sir Mortimer Durand, demarcated the border between India — now Pakistan — and Afghanistan. The Durand line, as it is still known to foreigners — the Pashtuns call it "zero line" and completely ignore it — separated the tribes on both sides of the line into 26 agencies, each with its own laws and tribal councils. It was this area that became the buffer between the British and Russian Empires, an agreed-upon "middle of the lake." The tribes were then left mostly to themselves for about 80 years.

The Soviet adventure in Afghanistan began on a snowy Christmas Eve in 1979, and took a decade to cycle through, ending in exactly the same fashion as all the other foreign enterprises in that land — with failure. It was in the territories to the west of zero line, in the lands of the Wazirs, the Mahsuds, and the Ahmadzais, that the Soviets repeatedly failed in their attempts to establish their authority. They took some of their heaviest casualties not many kilometers to the west of South Waziristan and Wana Fort where the current drama now seems to be winding down after two confused weeks.

.......As the CIA officer overseeing the final years of the war against the Soviet occupiers of Afghanistan, I served as a 20th century American version of the British East India Company political agent and quartermaster to these same Waziri Ahmadzai tribesmen as they stymied all Soviet efforts to "exert a little authority." Their leader then was Jalaluddin Haqqani, a man of uncommon personal courage, and a deeply nuanced understanding of guerilla tactics. Though his current whereabouts are unknown — some say he died of wounds from a U.S. air attack — Haqqani has transitioned from America's best friend during the anti-Soviet war to its worst enemy in the current undertaking in Afghanistan. He is at the top of the list of America's most wanted, and it is his spirit and the Pashtun code of honor that continue to drive the Ahmadzai tribesmen against whom both the Pakistani Army and American forces are lined up.

It will be a tough and unrewarding slog. Like most of the great confrontations launched by outsiders in Waziristan over the last 2,000 years, this one will probably end in ambiguity. There have already been claims of "mission accomplished" by the Pakistani army and the Frontier Corps — after all, they lost up to 60 dead — but there will likely be nothing concrete to point to, aside from claims of having destroyed a militant sanctuary. The much ballyhooed "high value targets" we and our Pakistani allies expected to kill or capture will probably remain unknown and unresolved, and the American Operation "Mountain Storm" across zero line in Afghanistan will probably wind down with an equal lack of clarity. Already there seems to be a sense of relief that everyone will quietly go back to fishing on their sides of the lake.

That's the way it's always been in those rugged hills.

Milt Bearden was CIA chief in Pakistan from 1986 until the Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan in 1989. He is the co-author with James Risen of "The Main Enemy: The Inside Story of the CIA's Final Showdown with the KGB."

It is all quite simple really. "Al Qaeda" in the non-conspiratorial sense is an international network of well-armed and well-connected Salafi fundamentalists. Jundullah and Al-Qaeda as we generally know it share major cornerstones of ideology. The United States wants to exploit autonomous Islamic militant groups to attack today's opponents, so they are providing better arms and connections to this Al-Qaeda adjunct. I can't believe anyone would seriously disagree with this.

It's just Afghanistan replayed - and they're keeping it covert so the American voters won't understand where all that blowback is coming from. Another fine long-term strategy from the Beltway Hellhole.

In memory of a military-industrial complex murder victim: Ted Westhusing. Who gives security clearances? USIS Murderers?

Who investigates the Investigation Services?

I went looking to see where security clearances get approved. I once again ran across the story of late Col. Ted S. Westhusing, who was likely murdered by private contractors in Iraq in 2005. Westhusing was one of those guys who has an impossible job: He was driven to go shut down corrupt military contractors in Iraq. Not surprisingly, they killed him and lied about it, apparently. It's suspected Westhusing was going to expose USIS corruption: U.S. Investigative Services, a firm spun out of the privatized federal office that hands out security clearances.

 Images Usis Logo SecThese contractors worked for USIS, the same secretive corporation that hands out federal security clearances under the authority of the Office of Personnel Management.

USIS History


Political patronage. A vengeful assassin. A President's death.

Thus began the story that eventually led to the emergence of USIS as the largest investigative services company on the North American continent.

Assassination of Garfield

When President James A. Garfield decided in 1881 that federal positions should be awarded by merit, and not according to political patronage, he sealed his fate. He was assassinated by Charles Guiteau, in an act of vengeance when Guiteau hadn't received the government position he expected for his support of Garfield.

Civil Service Commission Established

The outrage over Garfield's death generated a national movement, which eventually resulted in the establishment of the Civil Service Commission in 1883. One of its duties was to oversee the investigation of the background, suitability, and loyalty of employees and applicants for federal positions. For almost half a century, that responsibility was in our province as the Investigations Service arm of the Office of Personnel Management.

Formation of USIS

On July 8, 1996, USIS was formed on the initiative of the President and Congress as an employee-owned company. USIS is steeped in the tradition of providing high-quality, timely investigative services to its customers. Today, USIS is the industry leader in employment background and drug screening services. USIS is recognized as a primary resource for business information and due diligence services and the pre-eminent supplier of national security and administrative staffing support for U.S. government programs here and abroad.



Who owns USIS?

Safariscreensnapz010

Carlyle Group!!! BONUS POINTS FOR ALL. But mysteriously, it's only 'partially realized.' Nice.

 Pns Images Gr CarlyleUSIS was promptly purchased by the Carlyle Group, where it now has control over who gets clearances and who gets rejected. (more on Carlyle and war outsourcing from CPI)

Answers.com: USIS is the privatized arm of the Office of Personnel Management's Office of Federal Investigations. OPM privatized its investigations function in 1996 into what became US Investigations Services, or USIS. The company began as an employee-owned company, but has since been purchased by private investors and is now owned by The Carlyle Group and Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe, two private equity firms. Since OPM’s privatization of its federal investigators, approximately 2000 investigators from the Defense Security Service have been transferred to OPM, and OPM has since reconstituted its federal investigations program in the Center for Federal Investigative Services, located within OPM. OPM is responsible for the bulk of federal security clearance investigations, but it contracts out most of this work.

Duly noted on Wikipedia, USIS originally had all of OPM's background checks, but now Kroll (the "Wall street CIA" heavies handling WTC security on 9/11), and CACI - the shadeballs running the Abu Ghraib interrogators -- also have a handle on who gets security clearances in America today.

In Iraq, USIS has some kind of role. And Westhusing was going to try to put a stop to it. So they put a stop to him - and USIS personnel reported the whole damn murder ('suicide') scene. No one cares.... Here is a 2004 story about Ollie North and more on USIS from Wayne Madsen and John Stanton.

In other military-industrial news, a shady holding firm called Cerberus, which seems linked to bribe-nexus MZM and the Cunningham contractor bribery scandal, now ends up the ugly failed contractor for Walter Reed soldiers. This DKos diary had many links to major stories on it: Larger CIA and DoD Privatization Scandal Emerging from Walter Reed Story, US Attorneys Firing. Yeah they canned US attorneys to protect some of that. It is also duly noted here that MZM somehow inserted its lackeys in the WMD Whitewash commission - IE the Silberman/Robb report that absolved the Bushies of Iraq intel spoofing. Many onion layers etc.

 Images Articles Westhusingteds 1 OriginalAP story on Westhusing from June 2005 from a thread dedicated to him on iraq.pigstye.net (which notes all the casualties):

Wednesday, June 08 2005 @ 08:05 AM EDT

KOTV.COM -- TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- A West Point professor who volunteered to serve in Iraq has been killed in action, family members said Monday. Col. Ted S. Westhusing, 45, was killed in action on Sunday, family members said Monday. They did not release specifics on how he was killed. Family members received official notification of the death from the military late Sunday. Westhusing, a 1979 graduate of Jenks High School, had doctorates in Russian, philosophy and military strategy, his eldest brother Tim Westhusing of Broken Arrow said Monday.

"He wanted to go over there and make things better," Tim Westhusing said. "He has a wife and three children. He didn't have to go. This is the worst of all possible results." His mother, Terry Clark, of Tulsa, said he gave up "the good life" of a full-time teaching job to go to Iraq because he felt it was what Americans should do. His six-month leave for the Iraq assignment was scheduled to end next month, Clark said.

"He was a strong, Christian, ethical man and did what he believed was right," Clark said. A basketball player at Jenks and a National Merit Scholar, Ted Westhusing could have gone anywhere, Clark said, but he chose the U.S. Military Academy and the Army as a career. "He came from a military family, a family with a history of military service," Clark said. "We are all very proud of him."

Westhusing graduated from West Point in 1983. He left for Iraq near the end of the year and was helping train the Iraqi Army, working as counter-terrorism and special operations director under Lt. Gen. David Petraeus. He wrote a number of columns on his military experience that were printed in West Point and elsewhere. Among them was an opinion piece that appeared in The Tulsa Tribune on the eve of the first Iraq war in December 1990. In it, he detailed the nature of the modern soldier.

"In the minds of friend and foe alike, our Army is, without a doubt, the best-trained, best-equipped, best-led and most intelligent of any in our nation's history," he wrote. "Our soldiers are recognized as the world's finest."

He was an adviser for the movie "Troy." He explained military planning and troop movement to filmmakers. "He was a smart, moral man," his brother said. "He was an upstanding member of his community. He was an incredible guy. He saw the inhumanity and he wanted to make a difference." Ted Westhusing will be buried at West Point, Clark said. Funeral services are pending.

There was this article that someone posted here:

Westhusing's 352-page doctoral dissertation is a dense, searching, and sometimes personal effort to define the ideal spirit for a modern American soldier. His lantern held high, he plucked specific examples from history and picked each apart in a search for the perfect warrior. Achilles was a fierce fighter, adept with his spear and physically fit. But he desecrated Hector's corpse and selfishly pouted on the sidelines as the Trojans nearly destroyed the Greeks. Ridgway was a brave leader of men, but,Westhusing noted, some considered him too eager for his own glory. The bridge between the sometimes competing virtues of competition and cooperation was honor, a soldier's desire for approval from his fellow man and his country.Westhusing called it a "beguiling virtue"- difficult to define and difficult to recognize. The job of the American soldier was to embrace the true form.

Westhusing cautioned that devotion to honor could be taken too far. The "regimental honor" of the British infantry in the Victorian era was so extreme that officers suffering even a slight moral lapse would occasionally commit suicide rather than face disgrace. Westhusing called it a "monster" of a notion. "This sense of regimental honor tends to prevent and transfigure both greatness of mind and extended benevolence," two of the requirements needed for true honor, he said.

We're gonna throw in the bit from Wayne Madsen. Madsen is one of those "out there" journalists, so take your grains of salt, etc. This was posted on the same spot:

January 23, 2006 -- More details emerge on Col. Ted Westhusing's "suiciding" in Iraq. Days before his supposed suicide by a "self-inflicted" gunshot wound in a Camp Dublin, Iraq trailer, West Point Honor Board member and Iraqi police and security forces trainer Col. Ted Westhusing reported in e-mail to the United States that "terrible things were going on Iraq." He also said he hoped he would make it back to the United States alive. Westhusing had three weeks left on his tour of duty in Iraq when he allegedly shot himself in June 2005.

It is noteworthy that after Westhusing's death, two top Army generals, both responsible for training Iraqi forces, General Dave Petraeus, the Commander of the Multi National Security Transition Command Iraq (MNSTCI), and Maj. Gen. Joseph Fil, the Commander of the 1st Cavalry Division, were quickly transferred without much fanfare to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas and Fort Hood, Texas, respectively.

U.S. Army cover-up of Colonel Westhusing's death: Highlighted by fabricated evidence and quick transfers of senior officers

Informed sources report that Westhusing was prepared to blow the whistle on fraud involving US Investigations Services (USIS), a Carlyle Group company, when he died. [See Jan. 14 story below]. He had also discovered links between USIS principals and clandestine events involving the Iran-Contra scandal of the Reagan-Bush I administrations. Westhusing has also linked USIS to the illegal killing and torture of Iraqis. USIS personnel whom Westhusing was investigating had the keys to his trailer. In addition, Westhusing's personal bodyguard was given a leave of absence shortly before the colonel's death.

The U.S. Army's official report on Westhusing's death contained a number of falsehoods, according to those close to the case. Most importantly, the Army report stated that Westhusing had electronically communicated an interest in obtaining hollow point bullets. The bullet which killed Westhusing was a hollow point. However, the Army's statement was false, according to an informed source. In addition, the Army combed Westhusing's service record and interviewed a number of colleagues in order to concoct a story that would make suicide appear plausible.

California Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer is reportedly trying to get the Senate to investigate Westhusing's death. However, with the Republicans in firm control, it appears that murder of senior U.S. military officers is also something the GOP is more than willing to cover up.

Please contact your local congressman or woman or senator and press them to investigate Colonel Ted's death. He represents the good in us all.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

January 14, 2006 -- Serious questions remain concerning Col. Westhusing's "suicide" in Iraq. Army's chief ethics expert was murdered, according to Carlyle Group insider.

According an informed source within The Carlyle Group business consortium, Col. Ted Westhusing, the Army's top military ethicist and professor at West Point, did not commit suicide in a Baghdad trailer in June 2005 as was widely reported in the mainstream media five months later. At the time of his death, Westhusing was investigating contract violations and human rights abuses by US Investigations Services (USIS), formerly a federal agency, the Office of Federal Investigations (OFI), which operated under the Office of Personnel Management (OPM).

In 1996, OFI, which conducted background investigations for civil service personnel, was privatized. The 700 government employees of OFI became employee-owners as part of USIS. In January 2003, the New York investment firm Welsh, Carson, Anderson, and Stowe, described by a Carlyle insider as a virtual shadow operation for The Carlyle Group, bought USIS for $545 million. With 5000 current and former employees of USIS sharing $500 million, the deal made them wealthy with the stroke of a pen. However, upper management within USIS became much wealthier than the rank-and-file. Insiders report that the twelve top managers at USIS became multimillionaires as a result of their cashing in of their Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs). Many of these instant millionaires already had a close relationship with The Carlyle Group.

Carlyle had been a shareholder in USIS since 1999 and with the buy-out deal via the Welsh, Carson, Anderson, and Stowe deal, Carlyle became the major shareholder.

USIS continues to have a virtual exclusivity deal to perform background security investigations for OPM [all the feds! -dan]. The company bills itself as "one of the largest Intelligence and Security Services companies in North America."

With the Iraq invasion, USIS obtained lucrative Pentagon private security contracts in Iraq. At a 2004 job fair in Falls Church, Virginia, USIS was advertising for "interrogators" and "protection specialists" for "overseas assignments." While he was in Iraq training Iraqi police and overseeing the USIS contract to train police as part of the Pentagon's Civilian Police Assistance Training Team, Westhusing received an anonymous letter that reported USIS's Private Services Division (PSD) was engaged in fraudulent activities in Iraq, including over-billing the government. In addition, the letter reported that USIS security personnel had murdered innocent Iraqis. After demanding answers from USIS, Westhusing reported the problems up the chain of command. After an "investigation," the Army found no evidence of wrongdoing by USIS.

That decision signed Col. Westhusing's death sentence. USIS and Carlyle have powerful allies in the administration, including Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, the Princeton roommate of Carlyle Chairman Emeritus and former Defense Secretary Frank Carlucci. Former President George H. W. Bush, former Secretary of State James Baker, and former British Prime Minister John Major are Carlyle international advisers. George W. Bush was formerly employed by a Carlyle subsidiary and the Bin Laden business cartel was a one-time investor in the firm.

Westhusing, who, according to friends and colleagues, showed no signs of depression, left a suicide note the Army concluded was in his handwriting. However, Westhusing's family and friends have thrown cold water on the Army's investigation.

WMR can report that based on information obtained from Carlyle insiders, Col. Westhusing's death was not caused by suicide. The fact that Westhusing was investigating one of the most politically and financially powerful firms in the world resulted in higher-ups wanting him out of the way. According to the Los Angeles Times, all of the witnesses who claimed Westhusing shot himself were USIS employees. In addition, a USIS manager interfered with the crime scene, including handling Westhusing's service revolver. The USIS manager was not tested for gunpowder residue on his hands.

Westhusing's investigation threatened to unearth a network of fraudsters looting the US Treasury that included the Bush family and some of their closest financial partners. After Westhusing's murder, USIS management sent a vaguely-worded memo to employees about how to respond to derogatory information in the media or rumors about USIS. Management's attention, described as "psychotic" in nature, was on USIS's upcoming IPO (initial public offering), according to a well-placed source. USIS also owns Total Information Services of Tulsa, Oklahoma, a commercial personal data mining operation.

Someday we'll find out the truth. Many more articles on Westhusing here.

Morgellons: Nanofibers of doom come to eat you!!! Teh w0w Awesome conspiracy of fibers!!1!!

 Images MuOnce in a rare while you come across a truly impressive conspiracy theory, one that rises above mere 'urban legend' status to give you the Creepy Crawlies and inspire a really sweet movie. Morgellons are that theory. The screenplay awaits.

 Himage11-Fibers-Pm-Umass

Combine these two ideas: A) There were reports recently that laser printer toner generates nasty clouds of tiny nano-particles, worse even than street pollution. B) If you're a methamphetamine user, the noxious synthetic drug components can't break down and exit your system, so they come out in nasty lesions of drug goo. (when you go into jail, you get passed around for other people to lick the goo and get high). Combine these ideas and add a splash of AKIRA or the Cartman-Trapper Keeper episode:

 Media Images 413 Ep 413 Cartmanakira

Here's a quick Akira video. The part about 3:30 is what I'm talking about, where Kaneda becomes this super mega mechanized blob monster. I am REALLY sorry someone put this video to Linkin Park. Yikes.

The idea is that some people manifest mysterious fibers coming out of lesions in their body. Mysterious nano-fibers of unknown origin, growing out of wounds, transmitting radio and electromagnetic energy. Microscopic observation shows suffers' skin seething with fibrous materials under the skin. Tests show it's a non-biological material. It's not just lint on a sticky rash. But tests also show latent infections in many: for indeed, Lyme Disease, found in many Morgellon's sufferers, suggests a complex of infestations which erode immunity response.

There is a long-familiar disease called delusional parasitosis, which is the 'bugs under your skin psychosis' thing. Here is what purports to be the only video of morgelons, really friggin fuzzy and weird:

Here is another better video which I couldn't embed and another one of Morgellons Disease "Alive and with Intelligence." The description material contains:

Please "Sign the Following Petition" to Congress regarding the Centers for Disease Control, that they would Investigate and Research Morgellons Disease: http://tinyurl.com/yu4tnb

"Alive and with Intelligence"

Fresh out of skin and muscle tissue, these sand like granules as they are sometimes referred to can contain the Fibers, just as the fatty tissues, or the cysts, or skin sample samples, which Fibers seem to move occasionally, as being "Alive"

These Fibers initially surrounded the granule, of which there was some movement, promting investigation. Upon pulling the Fibers off of the granulated center, this Fiber seemed to reach across towards the separated bundle.

Hello to everybody who are involved in the Dreaded and Disabling Disease called Morgellons, and "Welcome" to those of you who ought to be and soon will be.

My Website is "MorgellonsUSA.com".

In many of these Videos are seen Fresh Sample Tissues Showing the "Colored Fibers" Growing and are Produced Within the skin, the muscle and the fatty tissues. Sadly, this is only one aspect of the Disease, which is also very disabling, as it affects the brain and the neurological system also, among other things.

The many persons, Dermatologists and Physicians who fight this, and who say that it is only a phsychological Illness, have a hallucination and a delusion themselves. They don't wish to be

accountable for their great and major contributions in helping to spread this Illness, and for ruining the many peoples families, and lives of the persons who suffer from this. They

say that this Disease is Delusional, and call the patients who have this "DOP" or "Delusions of Parasitosis"

Many persons have been commited to Mental Institutions or given Anti-Phsychotic Drugs. Perhaps you know somebody or have a loved one who is going through this, and furthermore, the CDC has not done one single thing to Investigate or Fix this Problem. Are you next???

On the other hand, Morgellons Watch is the obligatory debunking site, claiming that "morgellons" are a product of the enviroment, and the perceived disease is a combination of other stuff. And someone is out there saying that the aerial Chemtrails and government-engineered Lyme disease are at the root of it all.

Basically I thought this was a pretty wild tale, unexpectedly creepy-crawly and already full of peculiar medical paranoia, hazy videos and unknown factors. What If the Government has created special bioweapons to turn nanoparticle pollution into sinister fibers that will eventually integrate you into the Evil Biomatrix!?!!? Can the morgellons inter-communicate? Mwahaha!

It's a really nice day right now, which makes it even more shameful to post such random Internet conspiracy material as this. However, I am giving myself a pass since the Da Vinci Code came out today, with heavy melodrama, poor pacing and flat characters. The George Washington Illuminati letters are really pretty good by today's standard. So stick with us, because the traces of Atlantis are here by the Mississippi, and there's a global power grab going on to enslave the masses and beam McDonald's ads into our brains.

 Nec Graphics KothFirst of all, I should put the impressive Internet Sacred Text Archive, which has unadulterated source texts from across the spectrum, from Theosophy and Jainism to I Ching, Forteanism, and Freemasonry, as well as two versions of the probably fake Necronomicon (which is where that grinning box thing comes from). So at the least, these are primary sources you can check out about all manner of esoteric human beliefs.

washington cornerstoneMason hatHere's some official Masonic material about their favorite contributions to American "National Treasures". Some of the many cornerstones of federal buildings laid by Masons, including the Washington Monument. They really like their funny hats. Washington's Masonic National Memorial is bigtime. There is even a Washington Trowel revered as a Masonic symbol, used often in special ceremonies, including the cornerstones of the Supreme Court and the Library of Congress.

But is the other shit you find around the Internet really even worth looking at? Well no, not generally. This should straighten everything out: from NoGW.com's "The Illuminati & the New World Order".

Now that's what I call political science. Here's some other stuff: TheWatcherFiles.com is mostly about aliens and stargates but also has The Satanic bloodlines including the Merovingian Bloodline. "Project Earth: Satan is on the Prowl" and Reptilian Watch! Fortunately there's a guide to stopping the beams, aliens and military attacks in your head:

If you are a real nuisance you may find yourself being attacked by their electromagnetic weapons, abducted out of your sleep, or chip implanted with their tracking chips that also serve as 2-way transistors where they can harass you by speaking thoughts to your mind or just communicating with you in a sort of telepathic way. I don't' know how else to describe it. Most people don't recognize that one and so think they are hearing from "God" or just thinking the thoughts they are having are from themselves, or think it's just a demonic attack instead of coming directly from military technology. Other people can recognize voices and think they are schizophrenic. Sometimes some people just are, but for most people it's usually just the military and the black technology they're using to invade and torment you with.

We are in the middle of a war and it is a battle for your mind and for your soul. And for most, it's daily.

Crystalinks.com, run by a self-described new-agey "nice Jewish girl from Brooklyn" seemed less militantly angry and more merely reflective about arcane history such as the Priory of Sion, Grail legends, various mystery schools and Kabala.

The Daily Grail and its Red Pill wiki is pretty much what it sounds like.

When I was searching for the exact George Washington-Illuminati letters, I first found them here on watch.pair.com and I looked around that site a bit. As it turned out, whoever runs that site is a raving anti-semite and I was so disturbed by some of the content that I wrestled with even linking to it. The author approvingly quotes the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" and Henry Ford's "The International Jew", which is just plain horrible. (the site hosting Ford's evil tract has its own conspiracy stuff as well)

But seeing as how we have already featured links to, say, Hezbollah's Al-Manar television station, we'll let it go today. There is a pretty weird giant conspiracy going on in pair.com-land. Masons are big, naturally, apparently as a way for Zionists to control America and prepare for the Antichrist to rule Israel and then the world. They claim the Antichrist may be a Solomon-like figure probably from the Merovingian dynasty. King Solomon was bad because he integrated the "Babylonian mystery religion" into Judaism, in their view, and the Masonic reverence for Solomon is part of this problem.

Pair.com's really quite strange "Death of the Phoenix" feature was highly anti-semitic, yet also included the following "facts": A Judeo-Masonic conspiracy controls most everything; Atlantis placed colonies from Louisiana to the headwaters of the Mississippi; a fake or authentic Ark of the Covenant was brought to the New World and "Arcadia" in Nova Scotia by the Knights Templar; Hurricanes George and Katrina were generated by the Priory of Sion - which was proven by the 'P' and 'S' paths the hurricanes traced; the Priory of Sion is a front for the B'nai B'rith, which of course is a front for the Elders of Zion; strange riots in Detroit and Los Angeles are prophesied; this summer, fake biblical relics will be found to undermine traditional Christianity and support the Merovingians; Evil Jews ("Crypto-Jew" is a common term) created Opus Dei; Christianity's Calvin was really a Jew named Cohen provoking splits among the gentiles; since Justices John Roberts, Samuel Alito and Antonin Scalia are all Opus Dei sympathizers or members, plus with the Jews Stevens and Ginsberg, so the U.S. Supreme Court is going to be converted into a Jewish Sanhedrin court that will try to destroy Christianity, institute martial law and implement "Noahide laws" to subjugate the gentiles.

That's pretty appalling stuff. I'm sorry if you think it's offensive, but I did too. Here's the table of contents, which is one of the more peculiar things I've seen:

ACT I. Sleepy Hollow Revisited - The Templar symbolism of Hurricane Katrina - Judeo-Freemasonry / Zionist agents orchestrate downfall of the U.S. - Why the United States must be sacrificed

ACT VIII. A Better Country - The United States of America may fall before the Tribulation begins. - Persecution of U.S. Christians. How to prepare for martyrdom

Ok then. There were links offsite to various other things, and my favorite was Michael Ledeen's "What Machiavelli (A Secret Jew?) Learned From Moses." This was of course turned to make an anti-semitic argument, but it is still classic Ledeen:

After receiving the Commandments and crushing the heretics of the golden calf, he continued on to the borders of the Promised Land. There, at G-d's instructions, Moses organized an espionage mission headed by Joshua and Caleb, in preparation for the invasion and occupation of the country. After 40 days the spies returned. The good news was that the land was beautiful and bountiful; the bad news was that the inhabitants were big and strong, impressively armed and well fortified. All the spies, save Joshua and Caleb, argued it was suicidal to attack, and the vast majority of the people agreed. Fearing they were about to be destroyed in battle, they turned against Moses. "And they said one to another: 'Let us appoint a captain, and let us return into Egypt.'" Recently freed from Egyptian slavery, the Israelites nonetheless demanded a return to bondage rather than fight for freedom.

....

The revolt against Moses in the name of slavery is one of the most powerful of the "infinite examples" to which Machiavelli refers in order to show the difficulties in leading to freedom a people that has become accustomed to living in slavery, a fundamental Jewish theme that is as important to us today as it was in the Italian Renaissance. As Machiavelli puts it, "It is as difficult to make a people free that is resolved to live in servitude, as it is to subject a people to servitude that is determined to be free."

How, then, do we achieve the mentality of free men and women, and not of slaves?

.....

Listen to his political philosophy, and you will hear the Jewish music.

.....

These are not ideas that abound in the Christian liturgy. The notion that G-d wants us, above all, to devote our lives to the creation of the good society is, however, a very Jewish idea. Medieval and early modern Christianity relegated the accomplishment of justice to the hereafter. In this life, the important thing was fulfilling the sacraments. Insofar as politics was a religious concern, it was dominated by the notion that man should "render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's," and give G-d his due in other activities.

Machiavelli will have none of this, insisting that achieving glory for one's country is the single act most pleasing to G-d.

So: Was Machiavelli Jewish? Well, maybe not entirely, but certainly quite Jewish, maybe even very Jewish. If his great contemporary, Christopher Columbus, was most likely a secret Jew, if many crew members of the Niña, the Pinta and the Santa Maria were baptized on the gangplank, if, a century later, a majority of the founders of the Jesuit order were recent, probably opportunistic converts from Judaism, the notion that Machiavelli might have embraced much of Judaism is not so far-fetched.

Infowars.com had a feature about the occult activities of Thomas Jefferson. Check AmericanMafia.com for stories on the mafia.

This was a very silly post, loaded with bad and apocryphal material. Hopefully I haven't alienated any readers - I just wanted to throw in some weird shit to mark the weird popular-conspiracy riff that culture is into right now. Time for my tinfoil hat.

The late great Robert Nichols, a $250 billion Treasury Note, the Octopus Wiki (all your Iran-Contra/PROMIS style tiebacks) and Main Core, to boot

In a popular culture that has gotten more sympathetic to conspiracies, things that nagged at us out on the shady Internets have been shot into the mainstream in a weird way lately - it seems people like Glenn Beck and Michele Bachmann are "gatekeeping" around very weird stories -- they inject a bunch of crazy spin to some very strange, but real, facts, leaving a messy ideological wreckage behind, leaving existing small Internet communities of thoughtful observers dazed and confused...

(the leading recent example here would be how Alex Jones tried to raise alarm about the "FEMA Camp" federal paperwork and policies out there, and Bachmann and Beck parachuted in and made it all seem crazy, which caused the documentation-driven alarm from Jones to get totally overrun with nonsense. Not that Jones' analytic framework is necessarily good all the time - but in this case it was substantive).

But no one like Beck or Bachmann will stir up the loose change left behind by Danny Casolaro or the Octopus. You can bet on it.

*****

One of the great figures in the whole Iran-Contra/BCCI/Savings&Loan scandal complex mix was Danny Casolaro, a journalist who got into what he called the Octopus. Casolaro was abruptly murdered by someone like Oliver North's henchmen, or something roughly along those lines.

A new Octopus tentacle, which happens to match pretty well with an old one, washed up dead in Switzerland. Robert Nichols' name goes right back through everything, and it matches nicely the latest turn -- sadly, he turned up dead in February. From there, it gets into the Original Big Murky Ink Cloud.

One angle to this whole thing is that corrupt and powerful people can sometimes obtain really awesome letters of credit from government entities, and stash them away. The notes can then be used to build new financial instruments and complex frauds - Al Martin's book The Conspirators (almartinraw.com) had a bunch of stuff about the Bush family doing this in the 1980s.

So it made a very certain sense to me when I caught this story - off a site that seems to be run by Casolaro's daughter (or someone else whose parent was murdered in the broader Iran Contra/Octopus mix). Haters of the Federal Reserve, check it out!

$250 Billion Treasury Note Cloaked in Mystery – Evades Public Scrutiny | Desertfae

It all started with a Bloomberg News article entitled “Bayou’s Israel Cheated in Scam,” published on July 15, 2008 by court reporters David Glovin and Bob Van Voris.http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601127&sid=aLCwdJsx0V3M&refer=law

The article talked about Samuel Israel of Bayou Management Group LLC being cheated by Robert Booth Nichols, “who in a 1993 lawsuit claimed to have worked for the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency for 20 years. Nichols was also the target of a 1987 probe by the Federal Bureau of Investigation of organized crime in the entertainment industry,” wrote Bloomberg.

An excerpt of the article read as follows: “As Samuel Israel grew desperate to raise money in 2004 to save his Bayou Group LLC hedge fund firm, he turned for help to a Hawaii man who promised a windfall and then conned him out of $10 million, said a U.K. investigator.

“Robert Booth Nichols cheated Israel, later convicted in his own $400 million theft, in a ‘prime bank’ fraud, a scheme used by con-artists promising quick riches in secret markets, the U.K. investigator said in a document filed in June in federal court in New York. U.S. prosecutors seeking to recover funds for Bayou investors won a British judge’s ruling in November freezing $1 million Nichols held there, and they may be pursuing millions more in Singapore, Nichols’s lawyer said.

Robert Booth Nichols, 65, denied wrongdoing and sought to retain the $1 million in London. He said in court papers that he helped Israel invest in a legitimate, though unspecified “project” involving U.S. government obligations. Nichols said he had no reason to believe Israel was engaged in fraud.

“He was asked to find something, and he found it,” Nichols’s lawyer, Joseph Bainton, told Bloomberg, declining to elaborate. “There are very few people capable of performing this service, for which he was paid a lump sum of $10 million.

Nichols said in court papers that he believed the investment was on behalf of Israel personally, that Nichols was told his services involved matters of national interest,” and that a first cousin of President G. W. Bush, John P. Ellis, vouched for the legitimacy of the transaction. Nichols said the deal required him to contact representatives of foreign governments that he knew, according to court documents.

Nichols’ lawyer told Bloomberg that Mr. Ellis attended some meetings and gave Mr. Nichols some assurance with respect to the approval of the United States. Ellis worked at GH Venture Partners in 2004, according to Nichols’ court documents.

The criminal case is U.S. v. Israel, 05cr1039, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York (Manhattan).

The bankruptcy case is In re Bayou Group LLC, 06-22306, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Southern District New York (White Plains).

The missing link in the above story is the $250 Billion Treasury Note secured by 2,500 metric tons of gold at the Atlanta Federal Reserve, Serial Number SC 3040-20. Robert Booth Nichols’ lawyer described this to Bloomberg as an unspecified “project” involving U.S. government obligations. However, the reporters had no knowledge at the time they wrote the story that the “project” for which Nichols was paid $10 million allegedly involved Nichols locating and obtaining the Treasury Note for Samuel Israel and depositing it at the London Safe Deposit Box Company Ltd. http://londonsafedeposit.co.uk/

Yumz. Now we are getting somewhere. Christopher Story (Worldreports.org) also talked a lot about this certain raid against the London safe deposit boxes - the idea is that several months ago the London Metropolitan Police raided a huge bunch of safe deposit boxes, and these boxes contained all sorts of weird items, blackmail, leverage, the shadow wealth of a bunch of players who believed themselves untouchable.

But London Metro managed to take their stuff, and thereby actually, roughly speaking, damaged a huge chunk of the shady "intelligence power" as Mr Story likes to call it.

So that is one side... i will leave it there for now. Wayne Madsen had stuff on it too.

Anyway the Desert Fae blog has a lot of backstories like for example the Frank Sinatra mob stuff - Dr Nichols is showing up at the Cabazon Indian Reservation in the 1980s (Cabazon was where, according to the great Iran Contra Octopus tapestry, they were hacking PROMIS backdoors, something about weird weapons and the Contras, it was quite a classic set of data points that you find, when you go looking....)

Meanwhile running attached is The Octopus Wiki! Not too shabby!! It sort of suggests that major drug cartels and the Italian mob are subsets or sub-pathways of the Octopus. From the Wiki front page, just a few of the angles you need to nibble at:

The Inslaw Affair

Danny Casolaro, Michael Riconosciuto, Robert Booth Nichols, and others were mentioned rather prominently in the final House of Representatives Report #102-857 released to the public on September 10, 1992. The Investigative Report, put together by the Committee on the Judiciary headed by Senator Jack Brooks of Texas, entitled “The Inslaw Affair,” summarized a three year investigation into the theft of the PROMIS software from Bill and Nancy Hamilton, owners of Inslaw Corporation in Washington D.C. (The investigators who handled the three-year probe were listed on the Report as James E. Lewin, Chief Investigator, and John D. Cohen, Investigator.)

As a result of media exposure, Inslaw’s owners, Bill and Nancy Hamilton, had received information which subsequently led them to believe that the Department’s actions were part of a high level conspiracy within Justice to steal the “enhanced” version of PROMIS.

Inslaw alleged that former Attorney General Edwin Meese and Deputy Attorney General Lowell Jensen forced Inslaw into bankruptcy by intentionally creating a sham contract dispute over the terms and conditions of the contract which led to the withholding of payments due Inslaw by the Department.

Two federal court judges and the House Judiciary Committee ultimately concluded that “the United States Department of Justice‎ acted willfully and fraudently” and “took, converted and stole” Inslaw’s enhanced PROMIS software by “trickery, fraud and deceit.”

EXCERPTED from High Times Magazine, August 2001 issue, Vol. No. 313 – Title of article: "The Ghost ofDanny Casolaro.” [3]

“ --- Danny Casolaro's tragic death essentially opened a Pandora's Box which the DOJ was never able to close. During the last week of his life, Danny had discovered a connection between Mike Abbell, a former director of international affairs for the Justice Department, the Cali Drug Cartel, and Robert Booth Nichols, an international intelligence operative whom he had been interviewing extensively for months. Danny's last phone bills indicated he'd spent hundreds of hours on the phone with Nichols, most of the calls averaged one to two hours. This in effect, was one tentacle of the Octopus.

“Danny had confronted Nichols about Mike Abbell and the Cali Cartel while staying in Martinsburg. It was the last conversation Danny ever had with Nichols, and with Bob Bickel, a friend whom Danny confided in. Bickel subsequently confirmed the conversation, but for reasons unknown, the Abbell - Cali Cartel connection was never published in any of the official investigative reports on Danny's death. These included the DOJ report of September 27, 1994.

“In fact, a note handwritten by Danny four days before his death, found by relatives, read as follows: ‘Bill Hamilton - August 6. MR … also brought up 'Gilberto.’ Unknown to anyone outside the DOJ at that time, a [secret]FBI investigation of Mike Abbell was underway at the time of Danny's death. Years later, an indictment unsealed in Miami on June 6, 1995 charged Abbell with laundering money for the Cali Cartel. Surveillance reports indicated he'd made frequent visits to the home of Gilberto Rodriguez, leader of the Cali Cartel in Bogota, Columbia.

Top notch.

PROMIS was originally Prosecutor's Management Information System - early in the era, it seems to have been a kind of nice IT case management system that would let the suits tie into various government databases. According to reams of odd stuff out there (yet never definitively presented to the American public) it got stolen from INSLAW and mutated by the CIA and other assorted lunatics. (American intelligence sold a backdoor'd PROMIS to the RCMP and the Mounties were fucking pissed when they found out - I want Dan Aykroyd to play the Mountie boss in the film.)

From there PROMIS sort of seems to morph into a magic skeleton key into all types of data mining - by extending its ability to probe around into all government databases.

It seems too much the handy conspiracy program: It sort of plays like a MacGuffin or other placeholder "program that all the players have, to dominate reality in bizarre and invisible ways." There's no other program out there in the Internet conspiracy world I know of that compares to PROMIS. But I don't get what that means!

The idea from Chris Ketcham is that PROMIS became extended into MAIN CORE, the master NSA program that was spun out of DARPA's Total Information Awareness effort. Check this out - it does have the areas about "Continuity of Government" -- which is often an odd kind of logistical code or cipher for hardcore martial law, it seems, especially in the REX84 era (also Operation Sledgehammer, and Ollie North's Civilian Labor Inmate Facility [CLIF] proposal) --- myahhh I'm getting caught up in keywords now.

Excerpt of Wayne Madsen: http://www.waynemadsenreport.com/articles/20090508

May 8-10, 2009 -- Was Clan Bush involved in looting of other Federal Reserve Banks?

There is additional information to report on the Treasury Note that is secured by $250 billion in gold (2500 metric tons) at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. After the sudden resignation of New York Federal Reserve Bank Chairman Stephen Friedman, a one-time top economic adviser to President George W. Bush and someone who apparently profited from the government's bailout of Goldman Sachs while he served as both Chairman of the New York Fed and as a board member for Goldman Sachs, the entire Federal Reserve Bank system appears to be involved in a massive ploy to loot the United States of its gold and cash reserves.

On May 5, 2009, WMR reported: "According to WMR's sources, the FBI and London police are working together on a case that involved a $250 billion U.S. Treasury Note seized by the FBI from a London safety deposit box company, London Safe Deposit Company, Ltd. The box was reportedly placed at the London firm by self-described 20-year CIA veteran Robert Booth Nichols, who reportedly died in Geneva, Switzerland on February 14, 2009.

A heart attack was believed to have been the cause of death but there was a blow to Nichols's head. A 'friend' of Nichols, a New York stockbroker who was reportedly helping Booth move a large sum of cash, bonds and gold in Geneva, arranged for a quick cremation of Nichols's body and the U.S. embassy in Bern was notified. ........

Well, consider yourself educated at least in a few classic slices of Octopus lore, and how, in theory, they fit into the modern NSA panopticon. That's the damn thing about these freakkin conspiracies:

the same people pop up over and over and over. It's really fuckin' annoying.
