Donald: Right for the Wrong Reasons

Like a broken clock twice a day…

Because somebody needs to sort this shit out. Also, I feel the need to clarify my reasons and separate them from Donald for disliking the US intelligence community.

First, Trump’s bashing of the CIA is disingenuous. One of his supporters is Peter Thiel, founder of Palantir, a private intelligence contractor, who wants to privatize the intelligence community. Second, of course, is Trump’s ties to Putin and Russia.

But this is in a very real sense a sad joke. The United States of America is nothing of the sort. It is a boundary inside which public-funded mercenaries with labels like the Department of Defense and Triple Canopy go about doing the dirty work for multinational corporations. That is all that it is. Notions of patriotism only appeal to a criminally ignorant public and brainwashed jarheads who think they serve a country instead of the corporate interests that they actually serve. This includes running and coordinating the world’s drug trade for foreign investors, such as can be seen in Honduras where Chinese, Japanese, EU and UK investors watch as US military bases support drug trafficking and surrogates {when it’s not direct military strikes and CIA doing it} murder the indigenous population who has been given the bad choices of becoming drug mule slaves or dying as frequent delivery planes take off from the property of a Honduran millionaire.

To say nothing of Afghanistan, where 2014 was the biggest poppy year in the history of the country and the trend continues. Off-the-books black bag ops have no shortage of funding sources today for CIA. Just imagine every intelligence community scandal in the past fifty years on steroids, and you’ll get the idea about what is happening behind the scenes.

Of recent note, Muckrock’s efforts have resulted in many new releases from CIA under FOIA. Of interest, COINTELPRO is now {more officially} known to have been a joint operation between CIA and FBI. This is important so that one can understand that while both agencies supported millionaires and then later billionaires in the past, they are now fully in the multinational corporation camp and consider the American people–and really people in general–to be the enemy.

A quick reference here again to a handful of people who, like myself, claim that behavioral modification means and methods were responsible for their “radicalization.” Of course, the only ones whose names get thrown about in the news are those who shoot people or blow something up. Not only as per the previous post’s Ft. Lauderdale shooter Esteban Santiago but there was both Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis and lesser known Myron May {both African-American} who made similar claims. Here’s a reminder what MKULTRA’s true purpose was according to the CIA itself:

MK-ULTRA’s purpose was “research and development of chemical, biological and radiological materials [for use] in clandestine operations to control human behavior.” The CIA hoped the “psychoactive chemicals” would work on the victim’s mind and emotions to “release him from the restraint of self-control.”

That was the 1950’s.

Our current dilemma’s stem from the 2001 National Intelligence Estimate. In it, the intelligence community cited the growing gap between the rich and poor as the US’ biggest 21st Century security threat. Naturally, this meant CIA and FBI would get to take the gloves off and enjoy near complete freedom via twisted legal memos allowing practically anything to be done as long as they follow spirit-of-the-law-illegal-but-letter-of-the-slimy-lawyer-memo-legal protocols. {See The Intercept‘s recent work on FBI’s loosening rules.}

9/11, which was almost certainly engineered the same or similar way as the Santiago, Alexis and May shootings, opened the door for this and the mass privatization which Trump is attempting to increase by destroying public education and privatizing national parks. Both things CIA in its heart of hearts would love to help accomplish. Whether or not there are individuals within any agency that oppose is irrelevant. They follow orders or simply choose to work on a different assignment. It still gets done, just by someone else.

Anyway, this nonsense about the intelligence community going after Trump is about getting the GOP party elites back in charge. It will make nearly no difference to anyone at all except for GOP party elites. They will still continue to use covert operations to attempt to turn public opinion against minorities, as they did with 9/11, the Gary Webb crack cocaine epidemic resulting in the creation of the term “Superpredator,” etc.

All of this underlines another point: Doesn’t seem to matter where you turn. There isn’t anyone in your corner when you’re the little guy. This is bad guys against bad guys. They will resolve it soon and be one big happy evil family.

Note also that CIA was silent when Nixon conspired to wreck US peace talks for election purposes and Americans actually died as a result–not one of those silly Internet scare-tactics, actually happened–so that Humphrey {backed by LBJ} wouldn’t be able to claim peace as a reason to vote for him and the Democrats.

Nor did CIA speak up when Reagan’s people cut a deal with the Iranians to hold American hostages longer for similar reasons against Carter. Another indicator that CIA is as full of shit as it always is and doesn’t care about the average American at all, even when they are in the military or foreign service in embassies. They just have a good narrative this time with the Russians cuz Cold War.

and Red Dawn.

…and Red Dawn.
