BBD – Operational

Come a little bit closer…

Come a little bit closer…

Ran across the article below the other day. And, in typical fashion, it took me five days to connect the dots. See, despite everything I’ve seen and experienced, I still react initially much the way everyone else does: “Just one of those things.”

1988 – 1990

This is not just one of those things. This is another puzzle piece regarding what’s really going on and why they used us as guinea pigs at the NJSF back in the late 1980s. As I’ve noted several times and places, I was there in 1989 and 1990. The previous year, one actress had kind of gone crazy and spent a lot of time, money, energy attempting to figure out what was wrong. Both years I was there another actress each year likewise had problems.

Mid-1990s

Gene Maddaus, “Former ‘ER’ Actress Vanessa Marquez Shot and Killed by Police,” Variety, 31 August 2018:

https://variety.com/2018/tv/news/vanessa-marquez-er-shot-killed-police-1202923337

Last October, Marquez alleged that she was blacklisted from “ER” by co-star George Clooney after complaining of racial discrimination and sexual harassment.

“Clooney helped blacklist me when I spoke up abt harassment on ER.’women who dont play the game lose career’I did,” she wrote on Twitter.

Clooney issued a statement at the time saying he had nothing to do with casting on the show.

“I had no idea Vanessa was blacklisted,” he said. “I take her at her word. I was not a writer or a producer or a director on that show. I had nothing to do with casting. I was an actor and only an actor. If she was told I was involved in any decision about her career then she was lied to. The fact that I couldn’t affect her career is only surpassed by the fact that I wouldn’t.”

It’s really not difficult, even when you’ve been through what someone like me has, to see that someone who tried to help impoverished Africans at a time when the likes of CIA and Booz Allen Hamilton were ass-deep in stirring up trouble all over the continent for future military misadventures would be a target of smear campaigns run by the likes of CIA, FBI counter-intelligence, and/or the black bag departments of both major political parties {yes, I said both despite his support of Obama and Clinton}.

Anyway, there it is. Who do you contact when there’s a standing agreement between CIA and DoJ to not prosecute? When both major political parties run black ops on each other and the public with such regularity that it’s become normal? When FBI believes it is its job to “protect” America from free thought and anti war protest? * And that all those lines, plus private contractors acting as intelligence agencies for anyone who can pay them, are blurred.

* When it comes to the latter, FBI once had an internal handout flier lumping unions and environmental activist groups and Nazi and white supremacy groups together as similar threats. I don’t think that mentality has changed at all over there, unless it’s that the Nazis are okay.

Horrified, Storified

Two new storifies up regarding my Twitter yesterday:

“And I Feel Fine” is about the political, but not the technological, singularity. CIA is about to check the last thing off of its Halloween wishlist and it spells the end of any opposition to cheap labor, Permawar, corporate and military generated pollution, whatever it is that the multinationals want to keep on doing. The photo is a great example of Optimism Bias, aka waiting for Superman aka “He’s Not Coming, Lol.” (Right?).

“When They Fall” is showing just how quickly antiwar icons can be turned into tools of the military industrial complex. Includes what Monuments Men was about and a hilarious interaction between a famous folk singer and the robot brain of death. {Recall also Sting’s argument with Miles Copeland in Rolling Stone}.

And you can check out, from a year ago, “Insistence-is-Futile.” The story of how I called bullshit on ISIL before Tony Blair did. Note that the photo has apparently been debunked if you can trust McCain’s office at all. It still works symbolically regardless.

BBD – The Missing Link? {Updated}

And it’s the wrong words that make you prick up your ears
When later alone

Several hours after making the previous post live, a possible piece of the Wicked Game puzzle just sort of popped into my head. The problem is it actually makes sense, could explain a great deal. But then…well, you’ll see. While I should not be punishing those very few times I may have been told the truth {you should see the ridiculous crap I don’t even bother posting about}, there’s just something so neat and convenient.

First, let me back up a little.

2004 and on: Plamegate online warrior in which I really did put forth some good counter-arguments to those coming out of the Cheney administration. It related to the invasion of Iraq, which I have always opposed. Even when Bill Maher reversed himself once {“only Bush could imagine a Middle East so different from the one we know” or words to that effect} or when he had the King of Pentagon Stenographers on himself, Bob Woodward, dancing around how the Vice President’s office was illegally going around Congress to give the opposition money and weapons in order to reduce the number of American casualties temporarily in an election year. Always opposed it.

Then there was the Wexler impeachment event. All of this likely due to CIA engaging its unwitting asset to get back at Cheney and the Pentagon for Plamegate and backing Achmed Chalabi as Iraq’s replacement for Saddam Hussein. Would provide plausible deniability and appear as a grassroots kind of movement in which I was just one of many.

Then, let’s say, Cheney’s sycophants inside CIA alert his people to who I am. What is the response? For…

DIA or CIA in 2007-2008 to use me to remind George Clooney of his year from hell during the shooting of Syriana. Yeah, might have been either agency and one imagines DIA has the same non-prosecution agreement with DoJ that CIA has. DIA actually makes some sense, since there’s a chance the movie had CIA backing to begin with. Not sure, but the point was to remind him that he didn’t want to do another piece criticizing the War on Terror and how the US backs torture regimes. At this point, I’m on the radar. So…

{Here’s where the new piece comes in.}

Erik Prince bribes ‘Balding’ to use his capacity as a Department of Homeland Security operative to target me at some point in late 2008. The problem, he needs to hang the op internally on something. He uses the Manning leaks and DoD obliges by setting the date of the initial dealings of Private Manning back to October 2009. The problem? The party-crasher at the Halloween Party in October and the garbage was stolen in November 2008. The timeline shoots that tenuous connection right out of the water.

The purpose, as I’ve noted before, to turn me into the Lois Lang to Jeremy Scahill’s Nick Deak. The Squidgate op is initiated once they are ready to partially cloud the real issue and to hit two or three birds with one stone.

Now, who is missing from this scenario? Who comes out smelling like a rose when it’s all about “Blame the Republicans”? I’ll give you a hint, it’s a political party. If I didn’t know better, I’d swear the Democrats want to be friends again. And with an election coming up.

I have several responses to that.

Remember my drive out of Minneapolis a few days after 11/11/11? Because I sure as hell do.

The rest of what I’m thinking is far less polite.

Of course nothing will ever come of any of those things I listed above. Cheney is untouchable. So is Prince, obviously…he’s back in the States and there’s no peep about any of the many charges that lead to him fleeing for some time to the UAE.

As for Balding, I expect to see Obama giving him medal any day now. At worst, he’ll be pushed out of DHS and wind up working as a contractor perhaps with a cushier training, sales, or desk job. Rewarded, as people always are in the US, for doing horrible things.

In Which David Sirota Saves the Planet

Preface

There is nothing funny about assassination, torture, psychological harassment, the erosion of personal liberties, big brother surveillance, poverty, and fascism. However, due to the fact that these topics are so disturbing, I employ humor as a method of discussing them in order to allow the reader to get the facts without being so disturbed as to reject reading the message altogether. Additionally, it is not only acceptable, but I would argue the duty of the freedom and truth lover, to ridicule those who engage, order, carry out, excuse, and refuse to criticize these same acts and concepts.

Also, one may want to, if not already familiar with the series, check out the old BBC Connections series [1]. The historical trail this post attempts to take the reader along is more akin to Burke’s view of history than the standard one.

Also, this one is really long…

What the Sony Hack Really Means {Updated x2}

This Sony hack bullshit is a false flag operation, one way or another. Whether China or Russia perpetrated it {it was sophisticated and required resources that North Korea likely doesn’t have} as payback for NSA intrusions, or the NSA or a subcontractor spoofed the IPs, it is pure bullshit. That it actually has promoted, rather than really hurt, in the longrun a film that, like Zero Dark Thirty and torture, glorifies assassination, tells you immediately that it’s the brainchild of Langley with the loving approval of President Barack Cheney.

Update:

Yep.

Boot, William, “Exclusive: Sony Emails Say State Department Blessed Kim Jong-Un Assassination in ‘The Interview’,” 17 December 2014:

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/12/17/exclusive-sony-emails-allege-u-s-govt-official-ok-d-controversial-ending-to-the-interview.html

It’s all about glorifying war, and look who has jumped on the bandwagon.

Fleming Jr., Mike, “Hollywood Cowardice: George Clooney Explains Why Sony Stood Alone In North Korean Cyberterror Attack,” MSN, 19 December 2014:

http://www.msn.com/en-us/movies/news/hollywood-cowardice-george-clooney-explains-why-sony-stood-alone-in-north-korean-cyberterror-attack/ar-BBgYNgR

The free speech point is of course not lost on me. And, yes, you should be able to make whatever movie you like. But George knows good and goddam well what happens when you do. Good to know CIA made George their bitch after all, as they have with Obama. All for nothing, what a goddamned surprise.

Update 2, part 1:

Rappaport, Jon, “Newsflash: George Clooney doesn’t know N. Korea hacked Sony — What? George Clooney knows N. Korea hacked Sony? Really?,” 20 December 2014:

http://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2014/12/20/newsflash-george-clooney-doesnt-know-n-korea-hacked-sony/

This is the routine, over and over again with stars.

“Listen, GMO farming will save Africa. We have the data. Forget the crazies running around saying Monsanto is Satan. We’ve done the studies. This is Science.”

“We had nothing to do with the mess in the Ukraine. I promise you. That’s Russian propaganda.”

“Don’t believe the people who say we’re funding terrorists. That’s crap.”

After all, we slap banks who fund terrorists and launder drug money on the wrist with a wet noodle. We must be the good guys.

Pearson, James, “Forget the politics, Sony executives say North Korea comedy ‘desperately unfunny’,” Reuters, 19 December 2014:

mobile.reuters.com/article/idUSKBN0JX0B020141219?irpc=932

Perfect reason to seek help from those who approved and co-funded the piece of shit.

Of course the alternate explanation involves “hackers bad,” just at the point the Department of Schmustice delayed once again an already agreed to sentencing plea deal with Barrett Brown. The Obama administration is seeking to scare the pants off of Judge Lindsey at the same time they are promoting American exceptionalism in forcing food up anuses, murdering reporters with hacked car EPROMs, and blowing brown children apart with drones.

Update 2, part 2:

Undercoverinfo, “Barrett Brown: why his sentencing hearing was sabotaged; his case should now be thrown out,” 19 December 2014:

undercoverinfo.wordpress.com/2014/12/19/barrett-brown-why-his-sentencing-hearing-was-sabotaged-his-case-should-now-be-thrown-out/

On Tuesday the sentencing of Barrett Brown, a US journalist, was delayed for a second time and postponed until January 22 of next year. At the hearing the prosecution dramatically presented 500 pages of new evidence, seemingly unrelated to the charges to which Brown was awaiting sentencing. The only explanation for this is that it was a clumsy attempt by the prosecution to provide the judge with a basis for awarding a maximum sentence at the January hearing.

And so, coupled with knocking the Torture Report off of the front page, this begins to look like another 3D chess move to preserve CIA’s ass-stuffing, broken-bottle-raping, hide.

So let’s fix some of that.

Leopold, Jason, “The Weird Saga of the Other ‘Smoking Gun’ Torture Report the CIA Still Has Under Wraps,” VICE, 18 December 2014:

https://news.vice.com/article/the-weird-saga-of-the-other-smoking-gun-torture-report-the-cia-still-has-under-wraps

But last week, outgoing Senator Mark Udall of Colorado, in his final speech on the Senate floor and in the wake of the release of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s executive summary of the so called torture report, discussed the document at length. Udall called the still-secret CIA report — dubbed the Panetta Review after former CIA Director Leon Panetta — a “smoking gun.”

Kaye, Jeff, “Torture program linked to discredited, illegal CIA techniques,” AJAM, 18 December 2014:

http://america.aljazeera.com/blogs/scrutineer/2014/12/18/torture-mitchelljessenmkultra.html

Any suggestion of the drugging of prisoners in the post-9/11 era could be explosive. The application of “mind-altering substances or other procedures calculated to disrupt profoundly the senses or the personality” is a serious violation of federal law, with convictions bringing sentences up to 20 years in prison.

Still, details and language in the SSIC report could be seen to be pointing in that direction.

Allegations of the use of pharmacological agents against detainees exist in the summary. Authors of the SSCI report cite repeated statements by “high-value” prisoner Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri that his CIA captors drugged him. The report does not comment further on this issue, though at least one other prisoner is described as being “sedated” at one point.

Wow, 20 years. Hm.

It is not about protecting you in your goddam rented trailer. It’s about treating generals and admirals like the demigods they know that they are. It’s about shoving Dick Cheney’s friends so much money that they can buy whoever gets elected in 2016 {they already have}. It’s about working our way up to murdering as many dark skinned people, gays, atheists, activists, and freethinkers as possible under the guise of “we gotta do something about climate change.” This excuse is belied by the fact that the US Department of Defense is the world’s largest polluter. No, that’s really about expanding the defense and intelligence markets domestically because that also helped to buy Congress, just as it did during Vietnam.

Sirota, David, “Forgetting the Past, One Military Movie at a Time,” TruthOut, 26 February 2012:

http://www.truth-out.org/opinion/item/6870:forgetting-the-past-one-military-movie-at-a-time

The scheme is simple: The Pentagon allows studios to use military hardware and bases at a discounted, taxpayer-subsidized rate.

In exchange, filmmakers must submit their scripts to the Pentagon for line edits. Not surprisingly, those edits often redact criticism of military policy, revise depictions of historical failures, and generally omit anything else that might make audiences wonder if our current defense policy is repeating past mistakes.

In contrast to Obama’s murderous romp, Angelina Jolie made a war movie about forgiveness. Like Kill the Messenger, it’s not getting the attention it deserves. In her case, it was because she became ill:

Gates, Daniel, “Angelina Jolie Has Chicken Pox, Forced to Cancel ‘Unbroken’ Appearances,” MSN, 13 December 2014:

http://www.msn.com/en-us/movies/celebrity/angelina-jolie-has-chicken-pox-forced-to-cancel-unbroken-appearances/ar-BBgIrOT

The film is about a former POW who, in 1950, went back to Japan and testified about the atrocities committed in the prison camp while he was there. He met again many of the prison guards and the Colonel in charge of the camp and told them he forgave them. Of course, this “Christian” nation, whether you mean the Mormons in CIA, the Catholics in DoD, or whatever the hell people like Obama and Hillary and their cousins W and Jeb really are, don’t want to hear about healing and an end to conflict. Money is far more important to all of these groups because that’s just how they measure “God’s love.” Of course the Hollywood version toned down the Jesus stuff some. And of course what has upset televangelists is that, so they get to dismiss the peace, love, forgiveness parts.

This is a thoroughly screwed up chunk of Earth.

Even the War Nerd gets it. I don’t care, this is newsworthy. Again, you can see why they are so frustrated. That is, if you still give the slightest shit about human beings. Our government and its West Coast propaganda machine clearly do not.

Brecher, Gary, “The War Nerd: More proof the US defense industry has nothing to do with defending America,” Pando Daily, 18 December 2014:

pando.com/2014/12/18/the-war-nerd-more-proof-the-us-defense-industry-has-nothing-to-do-with-defending-america/

It makes no sense. I’ll just say that right up front. The reason it doesn’t seem to make any sense is that it doesn’t. There are no secret reasons here, no top-security considerations that justify any of this. It’s corruption, pure and simple. The sooner you understand that the US defense industry has nothing at all to do with defending America, and everything to do with making Dick Cheney’s buddies even richer, the more quickly you’ll be able to understand what’s going on.

And the reason they found it inappropriate is as simple as a liquor store holdup: money. …

Nothing will get done. No one will go to jail for any of this filth. You can get 15 years for robbing a 7-11, but the filth in the three-letter agencies, the service procurement officers who slip into comfy industry jobs between administrations, the corrupt project managers socking it away on an aircraft they know is worthless; not one of those pigs will do a day in prison for any of it.

It’s not that Obama has been disappointing as an antiwar progressive. It’s that he’s been consistently disappointing as any kind of antiwar president, the reason he was elected in the first place.

Those Times I Kicked the CIA’s Ass

Newcomers, possibly even longtime readers, may wonder at times why I write what I write here, why have I come to some of the conclusions to which I have come, and why I fully believe that if people don’t bone up on the history of the CIA and others within the IC and the private sector that operates symbiotically with it, there is no point in attempting to alter anything that really matters.

It was my plan to make this a longer post, but instead I’ll just make a couple of quick links before diving in to what the title of this post is really about. It’s long enough.

Wankers Who Wreck the Planet

Tell me I’m imagining it.

I don’t like doing these kinds of posts any more because I think they tend to associate me with disinfo artists like Alex Jones, might do more harm than good. However, there doesn’t seem to be anyone else even willing to discuss the possibility that MKULTRA style covert ops are being conducted on US soil without adding in unsubstantiated or meaningless bullcrap like programmed assassins and space aliens. Tag, I’m it, don’t I wish I was doing something else?

What I’m trying to do is lift the veil on how these things are sometimes done, and the accompanying disinformation. This is largely because they are becoming too frequent and serve no purpose that I can see apart from scaring the crap out of people and maybe inadvertently waking people up to some very serious problems. Stick with me through the bizarre part and hopefully it’ll make some sense at the end.

First, you may have to (re)familiarize yourself with something I’ve mentioned before. In what was just about the worst acoustic psycho-correction “session” ever, in late September of 2011, they had the idea of self-immolating in front of the Capitol pretty well jammed into my head. They finished it up with, “There will be worse days than this.” Really not wanting worse days than that, it took me ten days to talk myself out of it. Multiple reasons suddenly thrust into my brain, it seemed like a done deal just a matter of when, no time to even debate it. But over the course of the next ten days, I managed to get it out of there.

Next, you’ll have to recall James Eagan Holmes. Shot up a movie theater showing the third Batman trilogy film. The weird x-filesy part? Bane is the character who broke Batman’s spine. Meme-y, yes, but hang with me a moment. Clooney (who once played Batman) on the set of Syriana used a bat (or stick, articles conflict on that point) to kill rattlesnake that killed his dog and suffered a severe spinal/head injury.

Then, let me throw in, comic book writer (me) and the influence of the work of Alan Moore all over the damn place. Besides my love of Watchmen (and how on so many levels it speaks to power of various kinds), there’s Anonymous’ use of the Guy Fawkes mask from V for Vendetta.

Next. I noted it when it happened, but never caught the guy’s name until now. Once again, a person suffering from mental illness (as were Miriam Carey and Aaron Alexis around that same time) did something that made the news. He set himself on fire. In front of the Capitol. Family made it clear that he wasn’t political but, like the other two, suffering from mental illness. You had a dramatic suicide, mass shooting, and a woman shot by police in a short period of time. These were likely three examples of what is currently possible with the tech and methods available.

The self immolator’s name? John Constantino. Just a letter away from another Moore creation, John Constantine.

What does it mean? Possibly nothing at all. But it’s also odd to note that my ex married a guy with a name similar to a character’s in one of my stories. Why not? You don’t think these people have any respect for human beings, do you? We’re all just pieces on the board to them.

Or possibly whoever is doing it is making it clear that they think that they are untouchable or daring anyone to come after them. The trend would seem to imply that, if these are somehow orchestrated events, then it is the work of the same “orchestra.” The motives, the actual motives for any of these events (assuming they weren’t simply what the news seems to think they are) are quite different from the thematic trail it may be leaving. This implies someone who sees themselves as an artist. A genius who doesn’t just do what he, she, or they are hired to do, but also leaves a signature and draws attention to, perhaps, a dislike of entertainment by working on multiple levels at once. Note that all of those Moore creations have been made into films (as I’d hoped to do with The Wisp). That’s one way of viewing it.

Or, not entirely mutually exclusive, they don’t like what they are doing, want to draw attention to it so they might be stopped.

Yet another, of course, and most likely explanation: this is an organization who builds into their work phony trails to follow, red herrings, false leads, that also serve to terrify and make said organization seem like it’s beyond our ken, our normal grasp, ie, the Illuminati or on that level. And at the same time can try to convince someone like me that it’s all the work of one person and simultaneously make me look crazy even bringing it up. Sort of a built-in Martha Mitchell effect.

Of course with acoustic psycho-correction involved, that is also not exclusive of the previous two. It can be one or more individuals and an organization behind them at the same time.

Sounds like something out of the public/private intel/defense community/industry to me. Or maybe an unscrupulous organization with a vested interest in keeping Hollywood and the rest of the country cowed, in line, paranoid, confused, divided, and ineffectual towards stopping whatever else it’s up to.

I mean, how could it get any weirder?

Oh…

One day, I was in Westminster in London—this was after we had introduced the character—and I was sitting in a sandwich bar. All of a sudden, up the stairs came John Constantine. He was wearing the trenchcoat, a short cut—he looked—no, he didn’t even look exactly like Sting. He looked exactly like John Constantine. He looked at me, stared me straight in the eyes, smiled, nodded almost conspiratorially, and then just walked off around the corner to the other part of the snack bar.
I sat there and thought, should I go around that corner and see if he is really there, or should I just eat my sandwich and leave? I opted for the latter; I thought it was the safest. I’m not making any claims to anything. I’m just saying that it happened. Strange little story.

Quite the PSYOP. Also kind of interesting that Sting was sort of the model for the character.

Note how Moore thinks he decided to wait without going to see where “Constantine” went off to. Same as happened to me in the deli when “Janus” walked out. Same reason I sometimes didn’t think to take a photo of whatever bizarre thing just happened. It’s acoustic psycho-correction, no doubt, that’s the what. Left with FBI/CIA or DoD for who (MI5 or MI6 in Moore’s case).

Finally, I don’t at all lay claim to being a particularly good or original writer. I just think someone really didn’t want something like The Wisp (criticizing outsourcing, such as the ridiculous amount that NSA does) to go public.
