“Most terrorists are false flag terrorists, or are created by our own security services. In the United States, every single terrorist incident we have had has been a false flag, or has been an informant pushed on by the FBI. In fact, we now have citizens taking out restraining orders against FBI informants that are trying to incite terrorism. We’ve become a lunatic asylum.”

– David Steele, the second-highest ranking civilian in the U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence and a former CIA clandestine services officer (source)

It’s a term we hear so often these days, ‘false flag terrorism.’ What is it?

Does it mean events didn’t actually happen? Does it mean no one died during the event? Was it a drill? Was a patsy involved? Did the government/FBI/CIA know about it? These are the big questions that create confusion amongst people when it comes to false flag terrorism.

When the recent Manchester and London attacks took place our first thought was ‘OK, this happened, but what really happened?’ Why has this become an early first thought for many? Because the evidence for false flag terror, and the sheer amount of times it has happened, has become grand in recent years.

How often do we step aside and question what we’re actually hearing the mainstream media put out? How often do we examine events for ourselves and use our own critical thinking skills instead of blindly believing what we’re told on mainstream media news outlets?

We must remember the CIA’s “Operation Mockingbird” was designed decades ago to infiltrate media and sway public opinion, and it still continues to this day.

So we decided to jump on the phone with Robert David Steele, an ex CIA Spy who has carried out a false flag attack himself. We caught up with him to ask him his thoughts and opinions about false flag terror and how to recognize false flag events.

This interview was also the focus of our latest episode in our CE docu-series below. You can watch the full Robert David Steele interview below as well.

Buy Your Food from the CIA: Amazon Buys Whole Foods

Buy Your Food from the CIA: Amazon Buys Whole Foods | whole-foods | Economy & Business US News

The Whole Foods Market in Midtown New York is seen on June 16, 2017. Amazon is once again shaking up the retail sector, with the announcement Friday it will acquire upscale US grocer Whole Foods Market, known for its pricey organic options, in a deal that underscores the online giant’s growing influence in the economy. / AFP PHOTO / TIMOTHY A. CLARYTIMOTHY A. CLARY/AFP/Getty Images ORG XMIT: Amazon Bu ORIG FILE ID: AFP_PM23B

By: Jon Rappoport, No More Fake News

When Amazon boss and billionaire Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post in 2013, he also had an ongoing $600 million contract to provide cloud computing services to the CIA. That meant the Washington Post, which already had a long history of cooperation with the CIA, renewed their wedding vows with the Agency and doubled down on the alliance.

By any reasonable standard of journalism, the Post should preface every article about the CIA, or article sourced from the CIA, with a conflict of interest admission: TAKE THIS PIECE WITH A FEW GIANT GRAINS OF SALT, BECAUSE OUR NEWSPAPER IS OWNED BY A MAN WHO HAS A HUGE CONTRACT TO PROVIDE SERVICES TO THE CIA.

Now Bezos and his company, Amazon, have bought Whole Foods for $13.7 billion. Whole Foods is the premier retailer of “natural” foods in America.

The degree of profiling of Whole Foods customers will increase by a major factor. Amazon/CIA will be able to deploy far more sophisticated algorithms in that regard.

It’s no secret that many Whole Foods customers show disdain for government policies on agribusiness, health, medicine, and the environment. Well, that demographic is of great interest to the Deep State, for obvious reasons. And the Deep State will now be able to analyze these customers in finer detail.

At the same time, the Amazon retail powerhouse will exercise considerable control over the food supply, since it will be selling huge numbers of food products to the public. Amazon will have new relationships with all the farmers Whole Foods has been using as suppliers.

Perhaps this disclaimer posted on every Whole Foods item is now in order: KEEP IN MIND THE FACT THAT THE OWNER OF WHOLE FOODS, AMAZON, HAS A VERY TIGHT RELATIONSHIP WITH THE CIA. USE YOUR IMAGINATION.

Then there is this. The CIA has its own private company, called In-Q-Tel, which was founded in 1999 to pour investment money into tech outfits that could develop new ways to facilitate “data collection,” and service other CIA needs. In-Q-Tel, Jeff Bezos, and Amazon are connected. For example, here is a 2012 article from technologyreview.com:

“Inside a blocky building in a Vancouver suburb, across the street from a dowdy McDonald’s, is a place chilled colder than anywhere in the known universe. Inside that is a computer processor that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and the CIA’s investment arm, In-Q-Tel, believe can tap the quirks of quantum mechanics to unleash more computing power than any conventional computer chip. Bezos and In-Q-Tel are in a group of investors who are betting $30 million on this prospect…”

Nextgov.com described the deal this way: “Canadian company D-Wave Systems raised $30 million to develop quantum computing systems. Bezos Expeditions, the personal investment company of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and CIA venture capital arm In-Q-Tel participated in the latest funding round, the firm announced. The company’s quantum computing technology seeks to speed up data-crunching. If successful, the technology could aid automated intelligence gathering and analysis.”

Yes, automated intelligence gathering and analysis are exactly what outfits like Amazon and the CIA need for profiling the public. Other companies who have purchased products from D-Wave Systems? Goldman Sachs and Lockheed Martin. Let’s see: Amazon, CIA, Goldman, Lockheed—a formidable collection of Deep State players.

“Buy your food from the purest natural retailer in the world, the CIA. Oops, I mean Amazon. Oops, I mean Whole Foods.”

From OSS to CIA Ongoing Clash with Military Intelligence

From OSS to CIA Ongoing Clash with Military Intelligence | Truman-on-the-CIA | CIA Government Government Corruption Military Special Interests

For all those supporters of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s war, many admire the exploits of the OSS in Europe. While historians for the allied legions adopt the account that circumstances dictated the creation and use of the British, Special Operations Executive, which Churchill proclaimed, to ‘set Europe aflame’; the precedent left a heritage of intervention that few ever warned about the nature of counter-offensive missions. Gathering intelligence on adversaries is valid and even necessary to defend your country. However, to establish contingents of lethal assassins is a fundamental departure from intelligence procurement. During World War II the American version of clandestine operations put into motion a competing and dangerous rival to the traditional role of military intelligence.

This development is examined in The Evolution of the U.S. Intelligence Community.

“America’s entrance into World War II created an immediate need for intelligence to support the warfighter. While the Army and the Navy maintained their own intelligence capabilities, none were prepared to provide the kind of support needed. To bolster this effort, the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) was created in June 1942, under the recently established Joint Chiefs of Staff to succeed the Coordinator of Information. William Donovan remained in charge of the reorganized unit. In addition to assuming the analytical role of its predecessor, the OSS was chartered to carry out clandestine operations against the Axis powers on a worldwide scale. It was not, however, readily accepted by the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), who remained skeptical of the value of OSS activities, and the new unit faced strong competition from the FBI and the Army’s intelligence organization.”

“Source Statement – Former Secretary of State Dean Rusk recalled the 1941 state of the U.S.’s intelligence effort in testimony before a Senate subcommittee: “When I was assigned to G-2 in 1941, well over a year after the war had started in Europe, I was asked to take charge of a new section that had been organized to cover everything from Afghanistan right through southern Asia, southeast Asia, Australia, and the Pacific. Because we had no intelligence organization that had been giving attention to that area up to that time, the materials available to me when I reported for duty consisted of a tourist handbook on India and Ceylon, a 1924 military attache’s report from London on the Indian Army, and a drawer full of clippings from the New York Times that had gathered since World War One. That was literally the resources of the G-2 on that vast part of the world a year after the war in Europe started.”

Since the resources and priories of the military were not focused on procuring accurate and worldwide reach to gather intelligence, it is understandable that the immediacy of wartime needs, FDR would want to by-pass the Army and Navy. Most know of the successful efforts of breaking the Japanese codes at the decryption center Station HYPO run by Capt. Joseph Rochefort, which proved so crucial at the battle of Midway. Such signal efforts became the stable of the NSA, which nominally is under the command authority of the United States Department of Defense. In accordance with Department of Defense Directive 5100.20, dated December 23, 1971, the Director of the NSA must always be a commissioned officer of the military services.

Contrast these functions with the post WWII establishment of the CIA.

“In 1946 President Harry S. Truman, recognizing the need for a coordinated postwar intelligence establishment, created by executive order a Central Intelligence Group and a National Intelligence Authority, both of which recruited key former members of the OSS. As in the days of the OSS, there were problems of distrust and rivalry between the new civilian agencies and the military intelligence services and the FBI.

In 1947 Congress passed the National Security Act, which created the National Security Council (NSC) and, under its direction, the CIA. Given extensive power to conduct foreign intelligence operations, the CIA was charged with advising the NSC on intelligence matters, correlating and evaluating the intelligence activities of other government agencies, and carrying out other intelligence activities as the NSC might require. Although it did not end rivalries with the military services and the FBI, the law established the CIA as the country’s preeminent intelligence service.”

This maturation that placed the CIA as the go to intelligence source has allowed the apocalyptic ontogeny of the shadow government. Now anyone, who scrutinize the actual involvements that the CIA has fostered, must readily acknowledge that collective intelligence has not been the primary function of The Agency.  A Timeline of CIA Atrocities by Steve Kangas provides a partial list of covert intrusions into the affairs of foreign nations.

Folks, these surreptitious operations require plausible deniability to protect the elitist “Skull and Bone” culture that masterminded the original purpose of this rogue fifth column. Yet the ultimate treason committed by these unaccountable traitors direct their lethal wares domestically. Violating their charter, the stench from any objective inquiry into CIA drug trafficking that has taken such a sever toll on our own citizens and their complicit involvement in the JFK assassination, are evidence that Langley’s machinery of subversion seeks to control the actual directions of the U.S. government.

No person foresees JFK Wished He Could Splinter The CIA ‘Into A Thousand Pieces And Scatter It Into The Winds’. Yet it could be possible to separate the functions the Central Intelligence Agency has historically persuaded. The clear line breached stems from allowing the CIA to conduct their own hidden wars. While the military has their own sordid record of failed and misguided policy endeavors, the waging of military conflicts should never be place under the auspices of civilian mercenaries.

From the CIA’s own site, the First CIA-Military Command Relationship Agreement.

“After CIA’s founding in September 1947, the National Security Council (NSC) gave the Agency responsibility for conducting covert action, clandestine collection, and paramilitary activities “in times of peace.” CIA’s covert capabilities included propaganda and economic warfare, sabotage, demolition and evacuation measures, and subversion against hostile states through assistance to underground resistance movements, guerrillas, and liberation groups.

The NSC specifically stated that “Such operations shall not include armed conflict by recognized military forces … or cover and deception for military operations.” Although the NSC ordered CIA to place its paramilitary activities under theater commanders in combat areas, it made no mention of subordinating the Agency to the JCS in wartime as had been done with the OSS during World War II. Nor did the NSC and JCS resolve the question of when and how a “theater of war” would be formally designated for purposes of operational control.”

The CIA has conducted its own interventionism in foreign operations that are well beyond the authority of Congress. Be that as it may, in an age where Congress has abdicated its power to declare war; the unbridled Agency is an authoritarian syndicate of subterfuge and betrayal.

The military needs to be in command of any foreign adventurism. As lacking in traditional American foreign policy as this standard violates, armed services academy trained officers are a far better chain of command structure than careerist bureaucrats or power hungry politicians.

As disturbing as these circumstances are, the trend is even worse. ‘We Can’t Spy … If We Can’t Buy!’: The Privatization of Intelligence and the Limits of Outsourcing ‘Inherently Governmental Functions’ adds another layer of corruption that stems from handing out security clearances as bags of candy on Halloween.

“Though it lags behind the privatization of military services, the privatization of intelligence has expanded dramatically with the growth in intelligence activities following the 11 September 2001 attacks on the United States. In a report published three days after those attacks, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence encouraged a ‘symbiotic relationship between the Intelligence Community and the private sector’. In addition to dollars spent – dominated by large items such as spy satellites – this has seen an important increase in the proportion of personnel working on contract. More than 70 per cent of the Pentagon’s Counterintelligence Field Activity (CIFA) unit is staffed by contractors, known as ‘green badgers’, who also represent the majority of personnel in the DIA, the CIA’s National Clandestine Service, and the National Counterterrorism Center. At the CIA’s station in Islamabad contractors reportedly outnumber government employees three to one.”

Disclosing “Top Secret” confidential items taint military personnel as well as government agencies. Names such as Jonathan Pollard, John Walker, Jr., Robert Hanssen and Aldrich Ames haunt anyone deeply concerned about authentic national security.

What is often missed with all the trumped up hysteria about Russian infiltration in the 2016 Presidential election is that the CIA pioneered the techniques of gaming election results and overthrowing obstinate regimes.

Real intelligence starts with securing our defenses, not maintaining or expanding a caustic empire. Loyal American citizens do not pledge allegiance to the CIA. Gen. William “Wild Bill” Donovan is rolling in his grave if he could see what his OSS has morphed into as the Central Intelligence Agency.

CIA Assassin Heads Its Anti-Iran Operations

CIA Assassin Heads Its Anti-Iran Operations | cia | CIA World News

Michael D’Andrea (aka Langley’s Dark Prince or Ayatollah Mike for his conversion to Islam) headed the CIA’s Counter Terrorism Center.

He was involved in extraordinary rendition and torture prison activities, along with its drone operations – instruments of state terror, largely killing civilians, few so-called high-value terrorist targets, the alleged purpose of their missions.

In 2012, the neocon/CIA-connected Washington Post said “(w)hen his career began in 1979…Roger (his cover name) (was) an underperformer,” his superiors “down on him…He was getting very middling grades on his written work. (H)e seemed to be…a little beaten down.”

He’s come a long way since then, a key agency operative, currently in charge of anti-Iranian operations, the agency’s point man against the Islamic Republic under neocon director Mike Pompeo.

Iran is well versed in hostile US actions, dating from 1953, the CIA’s first coup against a foreign leader, ousting democratically elected Mohammad Mossadeq, many more to follow by toppling or assassination.

A generation of repression followed under Washington’s man in Tehran – Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi, ousted in 1979, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini replacing him.

Nearly three decades of US hostility continues under Trump. He’s militantly anti-Iranian – blaming the Islamic Republic for US high crimes, continuing what his predecessors began, beginning with GHW Bush’s Gulf War, violently destabilizing the Middle East, claiming a nonexistent Iranian threat.

D’Andea’s former counterintelligence and current job involves extrajudicial covert operations, the CIA silent on what he’s up to.

No Iranian terrorist threat exists. No actions by its government support terrorist groups – despite what Trump, his national security team and past administrations claim – heavily influenced by Israeli and AIPAC disinformation and Big Lies.

Tehran’s nuclear program has no military component, now now or earlier, the country’s leadership wanting a nuclear-free Middle East.

Israel is the only regional nation known to have a menacing nuclear arsenal, its ICBMs capable of carrying nuclear warheads, the world community silent about the threat – irresponsibly bashing Iran over nothing.

During his confirmation hearing, neocon CIA director Pompeo pledged to be hardline on Iran. In a September 2016  Foreign Policy op-ed, he lied claiming “(i)t’s impossible to know for certain whether an Iranian business partner is a sponsor of terrorism – until it’s too late.”

His piece read like an AIPAC press release, outrageously accusing Tehran of “support(ing) terrorism, disrespect(ing) human rights, and nuclear proliferation.”

Whatever D’Andrea’s specific duties are, his mandate is extrajudicially targeting Iran aggressively, causing lots of mischief – solely for its sovereign independence.

Washington wants control over its enormous oil and gas reserves, along with seeking to eliminate Israel’s main regional rival.

The road to Tehran runs through Damascus. Washington’s aim is ousting Assad, then targeting Iran the same or similar way.

D’Andrea’s mandate is facilitating the process aggressively, a no-holds-barred approach.

Microsoft Warns Of ‘Orwellian Future’ As WikiLeaks Exposes Participation With Surveillance

Microsoft Warns Of ‘Orwellian Future’ As WikiLeaks Exposes Participation With Surveillance | orwellian | CIA Science & Technology Sleuth Journal Special Interests Surveillance Whistle Blowers

By: Alexa Erickson, Collective Evolution | 

Recently, an installment of WikiLeaks’ Vault7 documents came to light that exposed two CIA malware programs that specifically infect Microsoft computers with the purpose of carrying out tasks on infected computers, checking for scheduled events, and collecting data.

The revelation put Microsoft in the hot seat, with people speculating that the tech giant may have been aware that the CIA works with features specifically built into Microsoft computers to collect data and perform tasks.

Microsoft’s history would suggest the worst, from Edward Snowden’s 2013 leaks that revealed Microsoft had “collaborated closely with US intelligence services to allow users’ communications to be intercepted, including helping the National Security Agency to circumvent the company’s own encryption,” to the NSA bragging about their newly acquired ability to triple the amount of Skype video calls being collected through Prism just nine months after Microsoft bought Skype.

Microsoft’s CEO had an intriguing and controversial response to the new WikiLeaks documents. At the company’s 2017 Build conference, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella warned the technology industry against creating a dystopian future, which authors including George Orwell and Aldous Huxley have predicted in the past.

“I’m an unrepentant tech optimist, there’s no question of that,” said Nadella. “But I’m also grounded. There are unintended consequences of technology.

“And it’s not that we can just use more technology to solve those problems, and technologies by themselves cannot solve these. But I do believe that it’s up to us to ensure that some of the more dystopian scenarios don’t come true.”

The main screen in the conference hall then lit up with Orwell’s 1984 and Huxley’s Brave New World.

“[Think about] what Orwell prophesied in 1984, where technology was being used to monitor, control, dictate,” said Nadella. “Or what Huxley imagined we may do by just distracting ourselves without any meaning or purpose.

“Neither of these futures is something that we want. So the question is: what are we going to do? Are there practical ways we can make progress?”

He urged the importance of people trusting in technology.

“I think it starts with us taking accountability. Taking accountability for the algorithms we create, the experiences that we create, and ensuring that there is more trust in technology with each day.”

“We want to think about people,” Nadella concluded. “But we also want to think about the institutions people build.”

While well-spoken, is it possible that Nadella’s words are empty, and merely just a diversion from the truth? Examining Microsoft’s history, and acknowledging how much the company has worked with the government, it seems possible Nadella is only trying to keep people from realizing Microsoft is, indeed, prepared for such an Orwellian future.

Creating War While Leading Through Opposition! (VIDEO)

 Creating War While Leading Through Opposition! (VIDEO) | Donald-Trump-is-sending-US-ground-troops-to-Kuwait-to-fight-ISIS-594991 | CIA Government Corruption Mainstream Media Multimedia Propaganda US News

Fake News Media is “the enemy of the American People.” –President Donald Trump

There is less than 21% approval rating for the American media.  The reason is that people in this country understand that it is nothing more than fake and contrived news! Yet, they remain in the present, continuing to lie and to further their agenda by promulgating propaganda, as well as driving support for Donald Trump, as a leader of the opposition. The more the media attacks him, the more support that he garners.

Those pulling the strings behind the corrupt politicians knew that Hillary Clinton never had the support of the American people anymore than John McCain had running against Barrack Hussein Obama.  Sad to say, it took the American people 8 years to figure out that he did everything opposite of what he promised. It was an easy fix.

Fake News now seems to apply to those who are for the Law and the United States Constitution while they expose corruption wherever it may be, even when it hits their favorite politicians. The enemies of America are thankful for people that remain ignorant of their enumerated laws (Hosea 4:6).  So far, the majority of the American people have been very accommodating.

“How fortunate for governments that people never think.” –Adolph Hitler

I reported earlier this year, 70 years of CIA propaganda and corruption, and how disinformation is exactly what they have been spewing out of the CIA for a long time, not only in our country, but in other countries, as well.

Dr. Udo Ulfkotte came out in 2016 exposing the CIA by stating the following:

“The entire mainstream media is totally fake!”

“Taught to lie, to betray the people and not to tell the truth to the public.”

“The CIA gets control over all of the majority of journalists.”

“CIA’s primary mission is to collect, analyze, evaluate, and disseminate foreign intelligence to assist the President and senior U.S. government policymakers in making decisions relating to national security.”

Dr. Ulfkotte dropped dead inside of a year of making those claims.

If you don’t believe what he said, then you deserve what you have coming.

What they say that they do and what they actually are doing are two different stories. The fruit of the CIA has been war, world destabilization, media propaganda, murder, bribery, etc. Listen to former CIA agent John Stockwell:

“It is the function of the CIA to keep the world unstable, and to propagandize the American people to hate, so we will let the establishment spend any amount of money on arms. ….”

Of course, they have been in cahoots with the military industrial complex, which President Eisenhower warned Americans about back in January 1961.

The CIA has become a propaganda outlet.

We can see what former CIA Director William Casey said when reinforcing John Stockwell’s statement:

“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American people believe is false.”

The media cannot be trusted, and most of us agree on that (Psalm 101:3).

“If you are not careful, the newspapers (The Media) will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.”

So, how is it that when their favorite politician moves into the White House, all of a sudden, the things that he does, regardless if they are constitutional (legal) or not, as long, (as he has on your favorite jersey) all is accepted? This is exactly what is happening in America.  Once again, it’s a different President, but the same illegal and unconstitutional policies and agenda moves forward. However, as long as you like him, that is all that matters. Where have America’s principles gone? (Jeremiah 5:21)

“Kings will be tyrants from policy, when subjects are rebels from principle.” –Edmond Burke

Americans must adjust to changing times and still hold to unchanging principles (Psalm 119:89).

“For a people that value its privileges above its principles soon loses both.” –President David Eisenhower

Now, we have Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump agreeing as to what should be done with Syria.  Yet, Donald Trump promised a special prosecutor to investigate her for her crimes against “We the People.” He launched 59 Tomahawks in Syria, but refuses to bring forth “the rule of law” concerning corruption here at home? How do they attempt to justify their aggression, they tell you that they have chemical weapons that could be used against us.  Apparently, Americans did not learn that inciting the people to war first comes with a threat regardless if it is legitimate or not. Remember Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq under the Bush administration that could never be verified?

That was before Donald Trump became the president, and after he told the American people that they “owed her [Hillary Clinton] a major debt of gratitude” for her service to our country.

How many scandals are exposed concerning these corrupt politicians like that of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, and now that Donald Trump is the president, they now agree. Are the flags going up yet?

And to take one step further, Trump’s assault on Syria was praised by world leaders.  Before he was the president, a majority of these “world leaders” were attacking him.  Now that he is the president, they are praising him.

There you have it.  The same world leaders who have been used to lie, steal, kill, sell their people out and wage war across the globe are in concert praising the new President of the United States of America.

How about holding Donald Trump to his own promises when it comes to dealing with corruption inside our borders rather than dealing with corruption outside America? First things first, after all, isn’t that what Donald Trump promised to do? (Psalm 94:16)

How is it that you now believe the media that has been lying to you for so long?  (Romans 1:18)

This is pro-wrestling at its very worst.

Are they now telling you the truth because it is Donald Trump who is the president?  Hypocrites!  Again, isn’t Donald Trump the one that has called out American media resources as “Fake News Media” and the “Enemy of the American people?” America, this is leading through opposition.

As more troops are sent to another war, remember, it will not be Donald Trump’s young men and woman that will fight that war.  It will be our fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, neighbors and children that will fight these unconstitutional wars.

“The man who can look upon a crisis without being willing to offer himself upon the altar of his country is not fit for public trust.” -President Millard Fillmore

What is it that Trumps administration is not telling you?

Let a former United States Marine tell you what the American media will not.

Another Canadian journalist exposed the lies of the Western media and the US about the war in Syria.

Hopefully, this will sum up the whole of what I am saying for those who have not learned from the past.

Every one of these warmongers claimed to be Christians (Matthew 7:16; 2 Corinthians 11:14).

  • President Jimmy Carter: El-Salvador, Guatemala, Angola, and Afghanistan
  • President Bill Clinton, Balkans, Iraq, Sudan, Rwanda.
  • President George Bush Sr. Gulf war, Panama, Somalia,
  • President George Bush Jr. Iraq, Afghanistan
  • President Barrack Hussein Obama, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan and Ukraine

Remember, war is the rule of force. Peace is the reign of law.

When was it America’s job to police the world?

“We Americans have no commission from God to police the world.”

“The Law…Expressed in orderly constitutional methods, is the only King to which we bow.” –President Benjamin Harrison

Furthermore, how many of these above “wars” were constitutional?

America, do you wonder why you are so hated by other countries?  You are hated because of what you allow your representative government to do to other countries, in many cases without provocation.

The best way to enhance freedom in other lands is to demonstrate here that our Republican system is worthy of emulation.

America, when are you going to figure this out? (Psalm 11:3)

Neocon Mike Pompeo’s First Public Remarks As CIA Director

Neocon Mike Pompeo’s First Public Remarks As CIA Director | mike-pompeo-donald-trump-cia-1024x577 | CIA Government Sleuth Journal Special Interests

(image: AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)

As long as the CIA exists, world peace, stability and security remain unattainable.

The agency operates secretly and unaccountably. Along with collecting, coordinating and disseminating intelligence, it functions extrajudicially.

It subverts rule of law principles by toppling democratically elected governments, inciting global instability and chaos, backing ISIS and other terrorist groups, assassinating foreign officials, supporting friendly despots, and operating as a global Mafia hit squad – high crimes its specialty.

Its unchecked power shortens the life of the American republic. Its existence threatens world peace.

Neocon Mike Pompeo serves as current director. His  first public remarks at the Center for Strategic and International Studies weren’t encouraging.

The CIA “engages (in) foreign espionage,” said Pompeo. “We steal secrets” – from friends and adversaries alike, he failed to explain.

“And we’re damn proud of it. (We) make no apologies…We utilize our whole toolkit” – every dirty trick and high crime imaginable.

The CIA is “legally prohibited from spying on people through electronic surveillance in the United States. We’re not tapping anyone’s phone…”

Fact: The CIA spies on anyone it wishes anywhere – legally and extrajudicially, its activities unchecked by presidents, Congress or the courts. It’s a rogue agency, making its own rules.

Pompeo: “(W)e do not pursue covert action on a whim and without the approval or accountability.”

FALSE!

Pompeo: “…I inherited an agency that has deep respect for the rule of law and the Constitution.”

FALSE!

Pompeo: “(W)e’re an organization committed to uncovering the truth and getting it right.”

Fact: The CIA is a global Mafia organization, far more vicious, deadly and destructive than private sector criminals.

Pompeo blasted whistleblowers Edward Snowden and Julian Assange. He lied claiming “they care nothing about the lives they put at risk or the damage they cause to national security,” adding:

“WikiLeaks (operates as) a hostile intelligence service…(I)t overwhelmingly focuses on the United States while seeing support from anti-democratic countries and organizations.”

“(O)ur intelligence community determined that Russian military intelligence…used WikiLeaks to release” DNC emails…Russia’s primary propaganda outlet, RT, has actively collaborated with WikiLeaks.”

Fact: Assange, Snowden, Manning and other whistleblowers deserve high praise, not criticism.

Fact: They perform vital services, exposing government high crimes and other wrongdoing.

Fact: Their mission is truth-telling, polar opposite how Western media scoundrels operate and rogue agencies like the CIA, NSA and FBI.

Fact: RT, Sputnik News and other alternative media are vital sources of real news, information and analysis.

Fact: Pompeo’s job is lying, deceiving, misinforming and directing CIA high crimes and other wrongdoing globally.

Claiming disclosures by WikiLeaks and other whistleblowers “caused harm, great harm, to our nation’s national security” is a bald-faced Big Lie.

So is saying Assange, Snowden and other whistleblowers “are not the slightest bit interested in improving civil liberties or enhancing personal freedom,” fundamental rights the CIA is hellbent on destroying – Pompeo its current maestro of misery, directing the agency’s high crimes.

He attacked First Amendment rights, saying “we can no longer allow Assange and his colleagues the latitude to use free speech values against us” – deplorably calling the right to speak freely about anything “a perversion of what our…Constitution stands for. It ends now,” without elaborating on what he intends.

“As the CIA director, it is my sworn duty to uphold the Constitution” – by breaching its fundamental principles.

“…I promise you that the CIA will be tireless in our mission to keep America safe” – by targeting and eliminating legitimate critics of rogue US policies.

America’s intelligence community supports wealth, power and privilege exclusively at the expense of peace, equity and justice for all.

New Wikileaks Vault 7 Release Proves The CIA Bugs “Factory Fresh” iPhones and Other Devices

New Wikileaks Vault 7 Release Proves The CIA Bugs “Factory Fresh” iPhones and Other Devices | cia-spying-iphone-wikileaks-vault-7 | CIA Science & Technology Sleuth Journal Special Interests Surveillance Whistle Blowers

Wikileaks has released another portion of Vault 7 called “Dark Matter.” In this telling release comes the story of the CIA’s involvement in bugging a number of Apple products, including iPhones and the Macbook Air.

In short, the leak exposes how the CIA infects Apple Mac computer firmware to gain ‘persistence’ on Apple devices, including laptops and phones. These projects have been developed by the CIA’s Embedded Development Branch (EDB).

WikiLeaks explains that this ‘bug’ allows an attacker/hacker to boot its attack software from a USB stick onto a device, even when a firmware password has been enabled. According to WiKiLeaks, the infector is stored in the Apple Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet adapter.

Essentially, the leak suggests the CIA is bugging iPhones from their factory fresh state and that, regardless of whether or not the user deletes or re-installs an operating system, their phone is bugged. Data can be collected, devices can be hacked, and so forth.

— WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) March 23, 2017

 

Below is WikiLeaks’ press release on the matter.

Today, March 23rd 2017, WikiLeaks releases Vault 7 “Dark Matter”, which contains documentation for several CIA projects that infect Apple Mac Computer firmware (meaning the infection persists even if the operating system is re-installed) developed by the CIA’s Embedded Development Branch (EDB). These documents explain the techniques used by CIA to gain ‘persistence’ on Apple Mac devices, including Macs and iPhones and demonstrate their use of EFI/UEFI and firmware malware.

Among others, these documents reveal the “Sonic Screwdriver” project which, as explained by the CIA, is a “mechanism for executing code on peripheral devices while a Mac laptop or desktop is booting” allowing an attacker to boot its attack software for example from a USB stick “even when a firmware password is enabled”. The CIA’s “Sonic Screwdriver” infector is stored on the modified firmware of an Apple Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet adapter.

“DarkSeaSkies” is “an implant that persists in the EFI firmware of an Apple MacBook Air computer” and consists of “DarkMatter”, “SeaPea” and “NightSkies”, respectively EFI, kernel-space and user-space implants.

Documents on the “Triton” MacOSX malware, its infector “Dark Mallet” and its EFI-persistent version “DerStake” are also included in this release. While the DerStake1.4 manual released today dates to 2013, other Vault 7 documents show that as of 2016 the CIA continues to rely on and update these systems and is working on the production of DerStarke2.0.

Also included in this release is the manual for the CIA’s “NightSkies 1.2” a “beacon/loader/implant tool” for the Apple iPhone. Noteworthy is that NightSkies had reached 1.2 by 2008, and is expressly designed to be physically installed onto factory fresh iPhones. i.e the CIA has been infecting the iPhone supply chain of its targets since at least 2008.

While CIA assets are sometimes used to physically infect systems in the custody of a target it is likely that many CIA physical access attacks have infected the targeted organization’s supply chain including by interdicting mail orders and other shipments (opening, infecting, and resending) leaving the United States or otherwise.

Why Does This Matter?

We are learning the truth about what government agencies are doing behind the backs of citizens and without their approval. While it can be argued that these measures are taken for the sake of national security, there is much more at play here, and as Edward Snowden has always stated, the public deserves to know, and we all should decide whether or not this is right.

We are in a time when we are learning a great deal about the true workings of our world and governments, and the more we learn, the more questions we have — and rightly so. There is an ‘inconvenient truth’, if you will, that humanity is faced with and must begin to work through, and that is that we do not determine who is elected to our governments like we might think. Our governments are not who we think they are and do not have our best interests at heart.

We must accept this truth, because that is the only way we can begin to change our world and start creating one where humans can thrive. We have the capability to do so, but we must first take the manipulative forces out of the equation. Awareness of what is really going on is that first step. News stories like this help us begin asking those big questions that lead to understanding what’s really going on and then effecting change.

How The CIA And A Tech Startup Are Arming Police, Intelligence Agencies

How The CIA And A Tech Startup Are Arming Police, Intelligence Agencies | police_watching_surveillance-1024x576 | CIA Civil Rights Government Control Science & Technology Sleuth Journal Special Interests Surveillance Tyranny & Police State

Police use surveillance software, which uses mobile technology and social media to keep tabs on citizens.

By: Eric Draitser, Mint Press News |

It is run out of a quiet, unassuming office on a tree-lined avenue in Bethesda, Maryland.  The rows of hip restaurants are offering young urban professionals all the grande-iced-sugar-free-vanilla-soy-lattes they could ever need. However, this serene suburban idyll belies the fact that serious work for the police state is taking place out of view.

Nestled in a suite just upstairs from the Asian fusion and seafood restaurants is a company that is transforming the way law enforcement, intelligence agencies and even giant corporations communicate within their organizations and with each other.

The company is called BlueLine Grid. It markets itself as “the nation’s premier, trusted collaboration network for law enforcement, first responder and security teams.”  Indeed, BlueLine Grid boasts an impressive array of investors and customers, including the LAPD and General Electric, among others.

But perhaps their most interesting client – and the one that deserves the most scrutiny – is In-Q-Tel, the venture capital and investment arm of the CIA. It is no secret that In-Q-Tel invests in emerging technologies that the U.S. intelligence community, especially the CIA, views as potential tools in their covert trade.

As the “Vault 7” documents published by WikiLeaks have revealed, the CIA’s Directorate for Digital Innovation is involved in hundreds of projects aimed at turning everything from smartphones and televisions to critical computer software into potent weapons for U.S. intelligence. Private companies operating outside of, but in partnership with, the CIA form a vital aspect of the agency’s innovation industry.

BlueLine Grid is a perfect example of the partnership that exists between the intelligence community and the private sector. This partnership raises significant concerns regarding potential breaches of privacy.

Policing the World by Smartphone

BlueLine Grid’s apps allow clients to communicate with team members in a reliable and secure network using a technology called geofencing.  Essentially, the technology allows a particular client (e.g. the Los Angeles or New York police departments) to draw a perimeter on a live map and communicate with all officers within that perimeter.

Put another way, BlueLine Grid uses real-time GPS information to allow police officers, intelligence operatives and other potential clients to communicate and coordinate within a given area and respond, in real-time, to changing developments on the ground. Rather than a walkie-talkie or generic mass text message, BlueLine Grid’s technology allows users to rigidly define a geographic space within which messages can be sent, as well as prevent those messages from being sent outside of the space.

The frightening implication is that this technology could eventually be used to stifle protest and halt communication among protesters. It is not hard to imagine police officers in major U.S. cities using the tech to harass and arrest protesters within specific geographical areas, cutting the legs out from under protests before they even begin.

Considering that police forces across the country are already fully militarized and employ military-style tactics, it would seem that BlueLine Grid is offering yet another potent weapon in the police state’s ongoing war against free speech and assembly. But it goes much further than that, as this technology is now quite literally the property of the CIA thanks to the undisclosed, but assuredly large, investment made in BlueLine Grid by the agency. And the connections to the police state and military-industrial-security complex run far deeper.

The Forces Behind BlueLine Grid

The company was founded by former politician Jack Weiss and entrepreneur David Riker, along with former New York and Los Angeles police department chief Bill Bratton.  Originally founded as Bratton Technologies, Inc., the company rebranded itself as BlueLine Grid in 2013. A quick look at the background of these individuals offers some insight into how BlueLine Grid got on the fast track to being the premier state intelligence app service.

Bratton, in many ways, has been the public face of the company since its inception. He’s a skilled political operator connected to some of the most important power brokers in Washington, DC.  After founding the company, Bratton had a stint as Commissioner of the New York Police Department, a position from which he resigned in 2016.

Bratton did not retire into obscurity, however. Instead, he took a job with Teneo Holdings, a consulting group closely linked to the Clinton political machine, as well as to Israel and its powerful DC lobby. Teneo Holdings was founded by longtime Clinton advisers Douglas Band and Declan Kelly, who used their Clinton connections to make Teneo into one of the world’s most lucrative consulting firms.

Alongside Bratton, Teneo boasts influential consultants, such as former Clinton and Obama Middle East envoy George Mitchell, and former British Foreign Secretary William Hague. Teneo has essentially become a nexus between law enforcement, the national security state, the military-industrial complex and political power brokers.

Teneo as a whole, and Bratton specifically, have deep ties to Israel, with Bratton having given multiple high-profile speeches, including the keynote address at Israel’s National Conference on Personal Security in Jerusalem, a conclave of some of the leading figures in Israel’s (and the United States’) national security apparatus.

The conference included influential attendees from around the globe.  With Israel having established itself as one of the world’s leading security-tech centers, it’s no wonder that Bratton has cultivated such ties over the years as he established joint-training and close cooperation between the LAPD and Israeli security forces as chief of the department.

Considering the way in which Israel criminalizes and represses Palestinian activists, it should come as no surprise that Bratton is also interested in cutting-edge technologies that give his clients the advantage over activists and oppressed communities.

But Bratton is not the only connection between BlueLine Grid and the military-industrial-security state.  Co-founder of BlueLine Grid Jack Weiss has also traveled in some of the elite circles within the security apparatus.

Before co-founding Bratton Technologies, Weiss worked for Altegrity Inc., a private contractor that focused on global investigations and security.  The chairman of Altegrity was the same Bill Bratton who, at the time, had recently retired from the LAPD. Altegrity went on to acquire the infamous Kroll, Inc., a business intelligence and investigations company, with Weiss heading up Kroll’s LA office.

As a 2009 New Yorker profile of the company’s founder Jules Kroll noted:

Kroll really made his living, and his name, on Wall Street. He owed his success …to Goldman Sachs and Skadden Arps and a long list of corporations, law firms, investment banks, management consultants, hedge funds, and brokerage houses…he and his company have been more highly valued for keeping things in the dark than for the occasional, client-approved exposé. They are the keepers of innumerable embarrassing, probably career-destroying, possibly corporation-destroying secrets.

Kroll is widely credited with having created an industry where there was none. Call it corporate intelligence…He offered an ever-widening range of services—forensic accounting, crisis management, competitor analysis—tooled for a globalized business world, in which industrial espionage, counterfeiting, computer fraud, identity fraud, and sophisticated financial crimes have flourished.

Indeed, the Kroll brand was well-known in political and financial circles, perhaps too well-known. As the New Yorker continued:

“With its international intelligence networks and their sometimes unnerving abilities, Kroll began to be described as ‘a private C.I.A.’ This was unhelpful. [Norb] Garrett—who was the C.I.A.’s station chief in Cairo before he joined Kroll—told me, ‘We can’t work in certain parts of the world if people believe we’re C.I.A. We just can’t.’”

Kroll, with its deep ties to the CIA and U.S. intelligence, came under the leadership of Weiss and Bratton in the last decade. Now they’re scratching each other’s backs one more time, this time with CIA seed money bankrolling yet another Weiss-Bratton business venture, BlueLine Grid.

And as the CIA money came flowing in, Weiss chose to move the company from New York to Bethesda, Maryland, just a 10-mile drive from CIA headquarters in Langley.  As Weiss stated:

“We have this incredible pool of talent from industries related to government that enable us to build real, mission critical, serious, hardcore technology right here in the D.C. area…We can take people who have been working on big, serious projects for a past couple years and put them in a new, cool startup environment and create a ton of new value.”

Put another way, BlueLine Grid moved to DC in order to leverage its contacts with the CIA and other government agencies and share talent and resources with them. While it remains a private startup company, BlueLine Grid has become a de facto government contractor, part of the very large revolving door between government and the security-surveillance complex.

Reclaiming the Tech Theater of Conflict

Thousands of demonstrators hold up their cell phones as they protest against an Internet tax planned to be introduced by the Hungarian government, in front of the Ministry of National Economy in Budapest, Hungary, Sunday, Oct. 26, 2014. Inscription reads: “Mafia government”.

There should be little doubt that the technology with which BlueLine Grid is equipping police forces, intelligence agencies and private corporations could be used against groups that organize to challenge state and corporate power.

That’s why it’s critical that activists from Standing Rock to Zuccotti Park, from Ferguson to Berkeley, be equipped with the necessary technology to defend themselves. They will need hackers to take BlueLine Grid’s technology and turn it into a tool for organizing.

If police and intelligence officers can freely communicate in order to organize and coordinate their actions, so too should protesters and revolutionaries. If the iPhone or Android is a weapon in the hands of the authorities, so too should it be a weapon in the hands of the peaceful protester.

Technology is one of the most critical theaters of conflict with the state and the forces of corporate control. There may be a BlueLine Grid out there working to arm the police with hi-tech weapons, but there are also millions of us working to disarm them and build a better world.

The CIA Can Now Order Drone Strikes Without Pentagon Approval

The CIA Can Now Order Drone Strikes Without Pentagon Approval | drone-operators-1024x576 | CIA Drones Government Military Pentagon Trump

By: Ben Sullivan, Motherboard |

President Trump is widening the CIA’s remit on targeted killing.

Last November, Motherboard asked how President Trump would handle the legacy of his predecessor’s drone program. Much was unclear, but four months later, we have our answer: America’s remote killing strategy is only intensifying.

Trump has given unprecedented power to the CIA to expand its killing program and launch drone strikes against targets, drone strikes that have no legal obligation for public disclosure and do not require the the approval of the Pentagon.

Dan Gettinger, co-director at the Center for the Study of the Drone at Bard College, told Motherboard in an email that Trump’s decision repeals a central restriction placed on the targeted killing program by the Obama administration.

In a distinct change to Obama’s policies, which allowed the CIA to hunt and surveil suspected terror targets but required the permission of the military to physically launch a missile strike, The Wall Street Journal reports that Trump has given the CIA authority to pull the trigger on its own strikes. This decision came shortly after his inauguration, and has already been used in a strike against al Qaeda deputy Abu al-Khayr al-Masri in February, the newspaper reports.

“Although the CIA never abandoned its role in drone strikes, the agency will now have greater freedom to carry out strikes on its own,” Gettinger said. “In the coming months, we are likely to see a further redefinition of the targeted killing program by the Trump administration.”

The unnamed US officials speaking to the Journal said that the new authority the CIA possesses can only be used for operations in Syria, but there are fears the CIA could easily expand its remit to outside of the country.

Obama’s decision to allow the military to preside over the final call on drone strikes, rather than the CIA, promoted heightened transparency and public disclosure on America’s drone operations. The CIA can now kill at will, unaffected by the need for public disclosure.

The revelation comes as US officials admit the Trump administration has almost put the finishing touches on a drone strike review that lowers the threshold on acceptable civilian casualties injured or killed in a drone strike, according to The Washington Post. The review goes back on policies Obama introduced, and could give the Pentagon permission to launch its own strikes without the approval from the White House.

It was previously unclear how Trump would wage his war against terror, but it is now obvious that the drone strike complex initiated by Bush, propelled by Obama, and now inherited by Trump continues to expand along the same trajectory.
