What’s Happening Plus What Happens In Vegas… {Updated x2}

{1 Nov 2017, newer update in bold. Something fishy about things being fishy.}

Briefly. Taking a step back and not defending anyone here, merely calmly noting events.

One will note DJT’s reputation as an assaulter of women. Then one will note the Harvey Weinstein scandal. And then Spacey’s.

One will note the Russia connection to DJT. Then one will note the Clinton campaign connection to it.

There’s clearly an attempt to make sides, in this case the two large political parties and their proponents, seem equal utilizing the news. It’s not that they’re that unequal; the difference between Nazis and warhawk mass-surveillance defenders is all too thin for my liking. The DNC’s problem is attempting to separate social justice and economic justice; it’s not possible, they are one and the same ultimately. The GOP’s problem is it is so far up the collective asses of multinational corporations that, of course, Nazism seems a good method of achieving their goals. Removes the asking of questions and places blame on the powerless instead of the powerful where it belongs.

Vegas

Know some of you were probably expecting something on Vegas. Precisely what happened eludes me at present. Alt-right has latched onto Ellen Degeneres interview with formerly AWOL security guard Jesus Campos. While it seems likely Ellen was helping friends in Vegas get back into business {note again DNC supporters}, that in itself is plenty of reason to disregard their assertions that she or her friends therefore had something to do with Paddock’s actions.

The NYT did a pretty good video meshing together several taken on phones from witnesses. There doesn’t appear to be any evidence that there were multiple shooters in there, though one can clearly hear echoes throughout the skyscraper “canyon” after one of them.

I bring this up because a young female survivor was certain that she and her friends were being chased by gunmen on the ground. Her Facebook post archived:

I say “was” because she died in her sleep some days after. She had a pituitary tumor and her grandmother thinks it was probably that plus the stress. If so, that is really odds-defying, though I can find no motive beyond perhaps actually trying to stoke fears that there were multiple gunmen. One assumes if there had been, they would have been firing blanks.

Rene Ray De La Cruz, “After escaping Las Vegas shooting, High Desert Phoenix Foundation co-founder dies suddenly,” Valley Daily Press, 9 October 2017:

As I’ve written before, it does make some sense that average people, especially laymen where it comes to combat, experience situations like this that the adrenaline rush may lead to confusion as to what is happening just after. On the other hand, as I’ve also written before, when you want to make certain your real target is going to be dead at the end of the event, you provide additional shooters because you cannot assume that a person with mental illness is going to be a decent assassin. But I don’t see a specific target.

Paddock doesn’t fit, so far as the information we have, any of the usual patterns.

Was it a “workplace” shooting? He did well just before, so we can probably scrap the usual Reaganomics factors, though one might argue all roads ultimately lead there. Reportedly he also booked a hotel in Chicago near Lollapalooza, so it may not have been Vegas-specific.

Was he connected to ISIS, as ISIS itself and the alt-right have been alleging? Doesn’t seem likely. All ISIS would have to do is release the chat logs or whatever contact they had with him to prove it.

And the usual goals of depicting subgroups as dangerous don’t seem to apply. While he was a year or two from retirement, I don’t think that my first instinct about painting senior citizens as violent, which will happen soon enough anyway, is the likely scenario.

What is odd is how this came on the heels of a leaked FBI report depicting Black Lives Matter members as potential terrorists.

ACLU on the report

Somehow, I think that if Paddock was not a acting solely on his own, was somehow influenced to do what he did, that it is connected to that. The fact that he did make money gambling and was so tight-lipped may have meant he thought he was on some “mission.”

Which by the way is exactly what the State’s psychiatrist said that James Eagan Holmes stated on SHOWTIME‘s new show about mass shootings. Also, “Harold,” the shooter of Ronni Chasen, had stated he expected to be paid for a hit, though there was no evidence anyone had actually told him that in person or in writing. See voice-to-skull if you find that confusing.

FBI being uncharacteristically tight-lipped about it all only makes it seem like there is something missing from the public view. I suspect they know what it is but for whatever reason aren’t saying.

Could this be it? Evidence of two aircraft using the same call letters of an airplane and one of them was likely a chopper. Don’t know how to verify this, but really strange if true. Mind the unproven but somewhat logical-to-assume headline based on alleged aircraft movement.

Note that Ambellas is a frequent contributor to Infowars. Kinda thinking this is “reverse false-flag” somehow. That is, was a true lone wolf and Trump admin is trying to make it seem like its false-flag.

But I’m just not sure.

Pursuance Project

Just listened to a podcast/radio show with Ken Webster Jr. interviewing Barrett Brown. For those who don’t know, Barrett and a number of other individuals have started an online collaborative system known as the Pursuance Project. You can read more about Pursuance Project in Barrett’s article over at VICE:

Barrett Brown, “What Is To Be Done?” MOTHERBOARD/VICE, 31 August 2017:

Got a few things I wanted to touch on. This first was going to be a post unto itself, but I decided to shorten it.

Ken notes that people frequently ask him why he supports people like Barrett Brown, Edward Snowden, etc. He has his response which he says usually resolves the situation quickly.

I note that Marvel and other superhero films are extremely popular and do well at the box office. I note that our obsession with heroes is interesting given that we as a whole don’t, as a country, support people who actually go up against corruption and power, and that this doesn’t entirely make sense.

There’s a whole thing with Alan Moore, where he states that superhero culture is inhibiting adult males in the US from “growing up.” I kind of agree, though I would take it in a direction he might not agree with. That’s the short version.

Other topics in the show included, for example, Alex Jones.

ALEX JONES

Please allow me to capsulize the situation as I understand and recall it.

Jones came out and proved that there was an employee at STRATFOR named Alex Jones and that they were two separate people. This was true as far as I know. It worked great to defend from accusations of working for STRATFOR and/or the Military-Intelligence-Industrial-Complex.

However, there was more that he did not address. First, in its early stages his website{s} shared an IP address with STRATFOR dot com. I believe this information came via a Hammond hack.

Second, Jones hired two people from STRATFOR to work for him.

Third, Jones was a STRATFOR subscriber (and may have had an email address as well as the Alex E. Jones who worked there}.

While it was Obama advisor Cass Sunstein who suggested “cognitive infiltration” be used against the American people {Glenn Greenwald has reported on this}, it appears as if this is what Jones and whoever was/is pulling his strings was already up to. As Ken notes in the show, he’ll sometimes hear something and agree with it only to hear something incredibly stupid mere moments later. Jones conflates real corruption with conspiratorial fantasy and the result is one of the many D’s that the intelligence community is so fond of, in this case Degraded capacity to make informed decisions and organize.

BOB WOODWARD

This is a bit similar to Bob Woodward, whose position is not hard to figure out as Chris Matthews once suggested on Real Time with Bill Maher. Woodward has been and still is a Pentagon shill.

How can this be? Didn’t he report on Watergate?

Yes. Mere months before that he was the liaison between a Navy Admiral and the White House. The same Navy Admiral, by the way, who was spying on the White House in what became known as the “Radford Affair.”

Why? Despite Nixon’s paranoia, which was probably only enhanced after being dosed with LSD on the way to Moscow to begin discussions on reducing nuclear arms, along with most of the passengers on Air Force One, he was fairly moderate when it came to biological and chemical weapons as well.

Making it brief again, when the Nixon order to remove all chemical weapon stockpiles came down, CIA considered its store of extremely potent and lethal fish toxin to be biological. When the order came down to destroy stockpiles of biological weapons as well, they considered the very same to be chemical.

The testimony from that appears in the the hearings that took place on assassination and the rights of Americans where the intelligence community is concerned in the 70s.

Nixon was too moderate for the military industrial complex. His own paranoia got the better of him, but let’s ask ourselves if NSA spying isn’t actually a bigger problem than one hotel and then ask ourselves why there were no resignations on the part of George W. Bush or Barrack Obama.

Power that is now in the hands of Donald J. Trump, by the way.

At any rate, there’s MOCKINGBIRD, which everyone should be familiar with in which various reporters were actually working for CIA spreading misinformation, as well as Intercept reporting on a Los Angeles Times reporter whose main editor was CIA.

To bring it back around, these are just a few of the kinds of reasons we need the Pursuance Project. Check it out.
