A dozen companies in which Carlyle had a controlling interest netted more than $9.3 billion in contracts.

Overall, six private investment firms, including Carlyle, received nearly $14 billion in Pentagon deals between 1998 and 2003. (See related report, “The Sincerest Form of Flattery.”)

From its founding in 1987, the Carlyle Group has pioneered investing in the defense and national security markets, and through its takeover of companies with billions of dollars in defense contracts became one of the U.S. military’s top vendors, ranking among better known defense firms like Lockheed Martin, Boeing Co., Raytheon Co., Northrop Grumman and General Dynamics.

Unlike those firms, however, the Carlyle Group itself is not a manufacturer. It offers no services directly to the Pentagon, and has no defense contracts. Rather, it manages investments—some $18.4 billion from 600 individuals and entities in 55 countries, according to its Web site. The firm’s business is making money for these investors, the vast majority of whose identities are not disclosed to the Securities and Exchange Commission or other government bodies.

Though Carlyle itself has won no contracts, the companies it has owned or controlled have done billions of dollars worth of business with the Pentagon. The Carlyle unit that brought in the largest share—$5.8 billion—was United Defense Inc., which manufactures combat vehicles, artillery, naval guns, missile launchers and precision munitions. United Defense also owns the country’s largest non-nuclear ship repair, modernization, overhaul and conversion company, United States Marine Repair Inc. Its most famous product may well be the Bradley fighting vehicle. United Defense brought in more than 60 percent of Carlyle’s defense business.

Carlyle took United Defense public in 2001; by April 2004 it had sold all its shares in the company.

Lear Siegler Services, a leading contractor in aircraft logistics support, maintenance, pilot training and ground support, received contracts worth more than $1 billion. Carlyle sold the company in August 2002.

Southwest Marine Inc. also received contracts worth more than $1 billion since 1998, and Norfolk Shipbuilding & Drydock received contracts worth $827 million. In 1998, Carlyle merged these two companies into United States Marine Repair.

Vought Aircraft Industries, a large subcontractor doing work for military cargo planes, bombers, and fighters, received contracts worth $85 million. Vought is among the few defense contractors that the Carlyle Group has not sold.

Among other private equity firms, New York-based Veritas Capital Management firm that employs many former high-ranking military officials received Pentagon contracts to the tune of more than $2.2 billion. Veritas is the 41st ranked defense contractor.

Companies under the ownership of Vectura Holding Co., another New York-based group, got deals to the tune of $1 billion, while companies controlled by Berkshire Hathaway, led by billionaire investor Warren Buffett, won contracts worth $688 million. Companies owned by Green Equity Investors II LP ($275 million) and Gores Technology Group ($153 million) also received substantial defense money.

New market

Private equity firms did not have any significant presence in the defense industry until the end of the Cold War. Traditionally, the Defense Department depended on mega contractors such as Boeing Corp., Lockheed Martin and Raytheon for weapons and services. But since the 1990s, the military has increasingly outsourced to private contractors a variety of jobs and services, ranging from planning of operations to the supply of linguistic services. A U.S. government decision in the 1990s to encourage small-business participation in contracts also contributed to the expansion of the market for smaller, privately-owned companies.

The Carlyle Group acquired controlling interests in several underperforming defense contractors, installed its own management teams and revitalized the companies, in part by landing big Pentagon contracts. Then, they sold the contractors to other investors for a large profit.

“There have always been [private equities] that went in with management and bankrolled management,” said Stuart McCutchan, editor of Defense Mergers & Acquisitions. “What Carlyle has done differently is they have taken it to a new level both in terms of size and in terms of being committed to an entire sector.”

“Carlyle is the biggest single success in Washington of a venture capital firm,” Dr. Loren B. Thompson Jr., a national security expert at the libertarian Lexington Institute, said.

In 1997, for example, the group made a 650-percent profit when it sold BDM International Inc., a McLean, Va., defense contractor. And in December 2001, Carlyle sold off the majority of its holdings in United Defense Inc. Altogether, Carlyle earned $1 billion in profit from the United Defense investment.

A windfall of war

The group cashed out many of its investments when the stock of defense companies rose dramatically in the aftermath of September 11 and the buildups to the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.

“Defense properties are too expensive these days,” explained Carlyle spokesman Chris Ullman.

In 1997, Carlyle liked the price of United Defense, and beat out General Dynamics and Alliant Techsystems, which also coveted the underperforming artillery firm. General Dynamics bid more than Carlyle offered for the company, but potentially faced a lengthy, drawn out antitrust battle if it acquired United Defense. Carlyle ended up winning the bid.

Carlyle finally sold its stakes in United after taking it public in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks. The Washington Post called the hugely successful public offering “one of the most successful single venture investments of recent years.”

But United did not seem all that lucrative before September 11.

“They [Carlyle] were really kind of in a pickle with United Defense,” McCutchan said. “They wanted to cash out on the equity. There wasn’t much money to be made… When 9/11 happened and the defense budget took off, suddenly they had a winner on their hands.”

Even Carlyle, which typically does not disclose its financial and operational details, crowed over the sale.

“It was one of Carlyle’s best investments,” Carlyle’s Ullman told the Center. “We did make more than a billion dollars on that deal, and we are very pleased that we served our investors quite well.”

The reason Carlyle’s defense portfolio is lean at the moment is the high value of defense firms, thanks in part to the ongoing U.S. wars. “If there comes a time when defense properties are priced in a way that we think makes sense for private equity investors, then we will certainly consider investing more of our dollars in that sector,” Ullman told the Center.

Investment expertise

Carlyle has a diversified portfolio, focusing its investments in sectors that have heavy government regulation and contracting—defense, telecommunications and banking. Carlyle has matched its investments with the expertise of high ranking government officials, whom the firm has courted almost from its inception.

It was under the leadership of former Defense Secretary Frank Carlucci—first as a managing director, from 1989 to 1993, and as chairman from 1993 to 2003—that Carlyle grew from a small private equity to a global investment giant, and became a major player among defense contractors.

Other former government officials who have recent or current ties to the firm include former British Prime Minister John Major and former Philippines President Fidel Ramos; former Office of Management and Budget director Richard Darman; former Clinton chief of staff Thomas F. “Mack” McLarty; former Securities and Exchange Commission chairman Arthur Levitt and former Federal Communications Commission chairman William E. Kennard. Former Secretary of State James Baker works for the firm, as did his former boss, President George H.W. Bush, who was an adviser for the firm’s Asian investment funds until he left Carlyle in 2003.

Critics have long denounced Carlyle’s practice of recruiting former high-ranking government officials at the same time as it invests in companies regulated by their former agencies, dubbing it “access capitalism.” For example, Kennard, who served as Bill Clinton’s FCC chairman, is now managing director for Carlyle’s global telecommunications and media group, directing the firm’s business investments in companies he regulated.

“Carlyle would never have gotten to the level that it is at today had it not been for this premeditated commingling of business and politics,” said Dan Briody, author of The Iron Triangle: Inside the Secret World of the Carlyle Group, a book that takes a critical look at the rise of the firm.

One of Carlyle’s most controversial hirings was of former president Bush to serve as a senior adviser for its “Asia advisory board.”

“The fact that George H.W. Bush was working for them while his son was president, while his son, in fact, was dramatically increasing defense spending—that seems to me one of the most blatant conflicts of interests in history,” Briody said.

Bush—who joined Carlyle in 1998, before his son, George W. Bush, became president—ended his relationship with the firm in October 2003, Ullman told the Center. But that hasn’t stopped the former president from continuing to give speeches for Carlyle, which he did at a Shanghai event sponsored by the firm in April 2004.

Ullman refused to disclose the remuneration Bush received for his services. “That’s not information that we disclose,” he said. “That’s his personal business. You are certainly welcome to ask him.”

Bush’s office did not respond to the Center’s request for an interview. Written questions faxed to the former president’s Houston office, at an aide’s request, did not elicit any response.

Though none are placed as closely as the president’s father, Carlyle’s other Washington insiders have ties to current Bush administration officials. Current Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Carlucci went to college together, for example, and Secretary of State Colin Powell was Carlucci’s deputy on the National Security Council in the mid-1980s.

The continued presence of Baker and Carlucci riles critics such as Briody. “If you look at the relationship that Frank Carlucci still maintains with Don Rumsfeld and Colin Powell and the reach that he has to those folks—and he has in fact used that reach in the past and tried to influence decisions those folks were making, decisions that could directly or indirectly affect Carlyle’s fortune,” Briody said.

Carlyle dismisses the notion that Carlucci or any other former government or military leader on its payroll has any conflicts of interest. “Are you aware of any solicitations from [Carlucci] to Secretary Rumsfeld to ask for any particular benefits to United Defense or any of our other portfolio companies?” Ullman said. “All they [Carlyle critics] do is, they say: ‘Oh, Carlucci used to work in the government and he went to college with Donald Rumsfeld, and Carlyle has defense investments, and now Secretary Rumsfeld is secretary of defense. Therefore, there is a conflict of interest.’”

Despite Ullman’s assertions, media accounts have noted occasions when former government officials working for Carlyle have approached the Pentagon brass. For example, Fortune magazine reported in March 2002 that Carlucci had contacted at least two senior Pentagon officials, though Carlyle claimed these contacts did not constitute lobbying.

Ullman added that all former government officials working for Carlyle abide by “all of the conflict of interests rules related to lobbying former colleagues for a year.” He pointed out that the Pentagon had cancelled the Crusader artillery system, produced by United Defense, adding, “So if we are as powerful as everyone thinks, why did they cancel it?”

Rumsfeld announced in May 2002 the termination of the artillery system; until then, the Pentagon had paid United Defense some $2 billion to develop the Crusader.

Another Look at 9/11: Ask Not ‘What Happened?’ but ‘Who Did It?’ – Philip Giraldi #september11 #wtc #crime #911truth

Originally Published on September 16, 2021

The evidence of Israeli involvement is substantial, based on the level of the Jewish state’s espionage operations in the U.S., Phil Giraldi writes.

The twentieth anniversary of 9/11 last Saturday has raised many of the usual issues about what actually happened on that day. Were hijacked airliners actually crashed into the twin towers of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon or was the damage in New York City attributable to explosives or even some kind of nuclear device? These are fundamental questions and the so-called “Truthers” who raise them have been inspired by their reading of the 585 page 9/11 Report, which is most charitably described as incomplete, though many would reasonably call it a government cover-up.

I have long believed that unless one actually sees or experiences something first hand the description of any event is no better than hearsay. The closest I came to “seeing” 9/11 was the panicked evacuation of a CIA office building, where I was working at the time. Another related bit of 9/11 narrative also came from two close friends who were driving into work at the Pentagon when they each independently observed what appeared to be a large plane passing over their cars and striking the building. I consider the sources credible but was it an airplane or a missile? And I was not there to see it with my own eyes, so I am reluctant to claim that my friends actually saw something that in retrospect might have been misconstrued.

Critics of the physical and engineering aspects of the accepted narrative certainly have a great deal of expert evidence that supports their case. The way the towers fell as well as the collapse of Building 7 nearby are suggestive of something other than the impact of an airliner near the top of the structure, but I am no expert in the science of the matter and have avoided expressing a view regarding it.

Apart from what happened, I have always been more intrigued by “Who done it?” I found the 9/11 Report to be conspicuously lacking in its failure to cover possible foreign involvement, to include the Saudis, Pakistanis and the Israelis. Indeed, President Joe Biden has taken steps that have resulted in the declassification and release of 16 pages of the notorious 28-page redaction of documents relating to any possible Saudi role. The document consists of interviews with Saudi student Omar al-Bayoumi, who reportedly helped support several hijackers.

The Saudis are being sued by 9/11 survivors, but it is unlikely that anything really sensitive will ever be exposed, as explained by investigative journalist Jim Bovard. Indeed, the documents released last Saturday did not demonstrate that the Saudi government itself played any direct role in 9/11, though it is clear that wealthy Saudis and even members of the Royal Family had been supporting and funding al-Qaeda. It is also known that that Saudi Embassy and Consulate employees in the U.S. had funded the alleged hijackers.

Friends who were in CIA’s Counterterrorism Center at the time of 9/11 tend to believe that the Saudis were indeed supporting their fellow citizens while in the U.S. but were likely not knowledgeable regarding any terrorist plot. They observed, however, that there was considerable evidence that Israel knew in advance about what was impending and may have even been instrumental in making sure that it succeeded.

The evidence of Israeli involvement is substantial, based on the level of the Jewish state’s espionage operations in the U.S. and also its track record on so-called covert actions simulating terrorist attacks designed to influence political decision making in foreign countries. But, of course, in reporting on the 9/11 tragedy no one in the mainstream media did pick up on the connection, inhibited no doubt by the understanding that there are some things that one just does not write about Israel if one hopes to remain employed. That is true in spite of the fact that the Israeli angle to 9/11 is without a doubt a good story, consigned to the alternative media, where it can be marginalized by critics as a conspiracy theory or the product of anti-Semitism.

In the year 2001 Israel was running a massive spying operation directed against Muslims either resident or traveling in the United States. The operation included the creation of a number of cover companies in New Jersey, Florida and also on the west coast that served as spying mechanisms for Mossad officers. The effort was supported by the Mossad Station in Washington DC and included a large number of volunteers, the so-called “art students” who traveled around the U.S. selling various products at malls and outdoor markets. The FBI was aware of the numerous Israeli students who were routinely overstaying their visas but they were regarded as a minor nuisance and were normally left to the tender mercies of the inspectors at the Bureau of Customs and Immigration.

The Israelis were also running more sophisticated intelligence operations inside the United States, many of which were focused on Washington’s military capabilities and intentions. Some specialized intelligence units concentrated on obtaining military and dual use technology. It was also known that Israeli spies had penetrated the phone systems of the U.S. government, to include those at the White House.

All of that came into focus on September 11, 2001, when a New Jersey housewife saw something from the window of her apartment building, which overlooked the World Trade Center. She watched as the buildings burned and crumbled but also noted something strange. Three young men were kneeling on the roof of a white transit van parked by the water’s edge, making a movie in which they featured themselves high fiving and laughing in front of the catastrophic scene unfolding behind them. The woman wrote down the license plate number of the van and called the police, who responded quickly and soon both the local force and the FBI began looking for the vehicle, which was subsequently seen by other witnesses in various locations along the New Jersey waterfront, its occupants “celebrating and filming.”

The license plate number revealed that the van belonged to a New Jersey registered company called Urban Moving Systems. The van was identified and pulled over. Five men between the ages of 22 and 27 years old emerged to be detained at gunpoint and handcuffed. They were all Israelis. One of them had $4,700 in cash hidden in his sock and another had two foreign passports. Bomb sniffing dogs reacted to the smell of explosives in the van.

According to the initial police report, the driver identified as Sivan Kurzberg, stated “We are Israeli. We are not your problem. Your problems are our problems. The Palestinians are the problem.” The five men were detained at the Bergen County jail in New Jersey before being transferred the FBI’s Foreign Counterintelligence Section, which handles allegations of spying.

After the arrest, the FBI obtained a warrant to search Urban Moving System’s Weehawken, NJ, offices. Papers and computers were seized. The company owner Dominick Suter, also an Israeli, answered FBI questions but when a follow-up interview was set up a few days later it was learned that he had fled the country for Israel, putting both his business and home up for sale. It was later learned that Suter has been associated with at least fourteen businesses in the United States, mostly in New Jersey and New York but also in Florida.

The five Israelis were held in Brooklyn, initially on charges relating to visa fraud. FBI interrogators questioned them for more than two months. Several were held in solitary confinement so they could not communicate with each other and two of them were given repeated polygraph exams, which they failed when claiming that they were nothing more than students working summer jobs. The two men that the FBI focused on most intensively were believed to be Mossad staff officers and the other three were volunteers helping with surveillance. Interestingly, photo evidence demonstrated that they had been seen “casing” the area where they were seen celebrating on the day before, indicating that they had prior knowledge of the attack.

The Israelis were not exactly cooperative, but the FBI concluded from documents obtained at their office in Weehawken that they had been targeting Arabs in New York and New Jersey. The FBI concluded that there was a distinct possibility that the Israelis had actually monitored the activities of at least two of the alleged 9/11 hijackers while the cover companies and intelligence personnel often intersected with locations frequented by the Saudis.

The dots were apparently never connected by investigators. Police records in New Jersey and New York where the men were held have disappeared and FBI interrogation reports are inaccessible. Media coverage of the case also died, though the five were referred to in the press as the “dancing Israelis” and by some, more disparagingly, as the “dancing Shlomos.”

Inevitably, the George W. Bush White House intervened. After 71 days in detention, the five Israelis were inexplicably released from prison, put on a plane, and deported. One should also recall that when the news of 9/11 reached Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was pleased, saying that “It’s very good. Well, not very good, but it will generate immediate sympathy.” It will “strengthen the bond between our two peoples, because we’ve experienced terror over so many decades, but the United States has now experienced a massive hemorrhaging of terror.” And, of course, it was conveniently attributable to Israel’s enemies.

The possible role of Israel in 9/11 was first explored in book form in 2003 by Antiwar.com editorial director Justin Raimondo in his The Terror Enigma, a short book focusing on Israeli spying and inconsistencies in the narrative that bore the provocative subtitle “9/11 and the Israeli Connection.”

Currently, the twentieth anniversary of 9/11 has inspired some others to take another look at the possible Israeli role. Ron Unz has recently completed an exhaustive examination of the evidence. He observes that 9/11 and its aftermath have shaped “the last two decades, greatly changing the daily lives and liberties of most ordinary Americans.” He asks “What organized group would have been sufficiently powerful and daring to carry off an attack of such vast scale against the central heart of the world’s sole superpower? And how were they possibly able to orchestrate such a massively effective media and political cover-up, even enlisting the participation of the U.S. government itself?”

Ron Unz answers his question, concluding that there is “a strong, perhaps even overwhelming case that the Israeli Mossad together with its American collaborators played the central role” in the attack. His argument is based on the noted inconsistencies in the standard narrative, plus an examination of the history of Israeli false flag and mass terrorism attacks. It also includes new information gleaned from Israeli journalist Ronen Bergman’s recent book Rise and Kill First: the Secret History of Israel’s Targeted Assassinations.

To a certain extent, Unz relies on a detailed investigative article written by French journalist Laurent Guyenot in 2018 as well as on an argument made by an ex-Marine and former instructor at the U.S. Army War College Alan Sabrosky in an article where he records how “Many years ago I read a fascinating discussion of the ‘tactics of mistake.’ This essentially entailed using a target’s prejudices and preconceptions to mislead them as to the origin and intent of the attack, entrapping them in a tactical situation that later worked to the attacker’s strategic advantage. This is what unfolded in the 9/11 attacks that led us into the matrix of wars and conflicts, present (Afghanistan and Iraq), planned (Iran and Syria) and projected (Jordan and Egypt), that benefit Israel and no other country — although I concede that many private contractors and politicians are doing very well for themselves out of the death and misery of others. I am also absolutely certain as a strategic analyst that 9/11 itself, from which all else flows, was a classic Mossad-orchestrated operation. But Mossad did not do it alone. They needed local help within America (and perhaps elsewhere) and they had it, principally from some alumni of PNAC (the misnamed Project for a New American Century) and their affiliates within and outside of the U.S. Government (USG), who in the 9/11 attacks got the ‘catalytic event’ they needed and craved to take the U.S. to war on Israel’s behalf…”

Economist and author Paul Craig Roberts has also been motivated by the anniversary to review the evidence and concludes “Circumstantial evidence suggests that 9/11 was a scheme of George W. Bush regime neoconservative officials allied with vice president Dick Cheney and Israel to create a ‘new Pearl Harbor’ that would generate support on the part of the American people and Washington’s European allies for a Middle Eastern ‘war on terror’ whose real purpose was to destroy Israel’s enemies in the interest of Greater Israel… This is the most plausible explanation, but, if true, it is not one that the U.S. and Israeli governments would ever acknowledge. Consequently, we are stuck with an official explanation long championed by the presstitutes that no one believes.”

Yes, an implausible explanation that no one really believes for the greatest national security disaster in America’s twenty-first century. And Israel gets yet another pass.

Mossad & 9/11 – Gordon Thomas

Originally Published on June 7, 2002

Source: Antiwar.com

The complex and often uneasy relationship between Israel’s Mossad and the U.S. intelligence community is emerging as a prime reason for the catastrophic failure of the CIA and FBI to act on advance warnings of an impending attack on America.

Eight days before the September 11 attack, Egypt’s senior intelligence chief, Omar Suleiman, informed the CIA station chief in Cairo that “credible sources” had told him that Osama bin-Laden’s network was “in the advanced stages of executing a significant operation against an American target.”

Prior to that, the FBI whistleblower Coleen Rowley had revealed, there was a similar warning from French intelligence.

Both warnings, Globe-Intel has established, originally came from Mossad.

The Israeli intelligence service chose to pass on its own intelligence to Washington through its contacts in French and Egyptian intelligence agencies because it did not believe its previous warnings on an impending attack by the bin-Laden network had been taken seriously enough in Washington.

Part of the reason has already emerged by President Bush acknowledging for the first time there had been a serious breakdown between the twin pillars of the U.S. intelligence community – the FBI and CIA.

“In terms of whether or not the FBI and the CIA were communicating properly, I think it is clear that they weren’t,” he has said.

Behind this admission is the long-standing suspicion that both the FBI and CIA have about Mossad and its ongoing activities in the United States.

Ostensibly, Israel denies it has ever spied on its most powerful ally. But the reality is otherwise. Both the FBI and CIA regard Mossad as a clear and present danger to U.S. national security. It places the Israeli spy agency just below the espionage totem pole that has China’s Secret Intelligence Service at its top.

A full ten months before Mossad started to sound its own warnings against bin-Laden, senior officials in both the FBI and CIA saw them as “blowing smoke” to divert attention from Mossad’s own activities in the United States.

Evidence of this may well be contained in the more than 350,000 documents that the CIA has already turned over to the hearings of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees.

These are now underway in sound-proofed rooms before 37 members of those committees.

Already, in the atmosphere of leak and counter-leak in Washington, the consensus is emerging on Capitol Hill that the U.S. intelligence community had enough data to have been able to prevent the September 11 attacks.

Richard Shelby, the senior Republican on the Senate intelligence committee has spoken about “a massive intelligence failure.”

A hint of the extent of that failure has come from Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak. He has spoken of “a secret agent who was in close contact with the bin-Laden organisation.”

Globe-Intel has been told that the “agent” was in fact the senior Mossad source who tipped off Egypt’s intelligence chief, Omar Suleiman, that an attack on America was coming.

During last year, senior Egyptian officials have told Globe-Intel there were five separate contacts between Suleiman and his Mossad counterpart, Efraim Halevy.

Understandably, Israeli government sources in Tel Aviv have denied such contacts.

But an official close to Mubarak have confirmed that they did take place.

Mubarak’s public statements on the matter – the first ranking statesman to break cover over the building controversy of who-knew-what-and-when, will at minimum be seen as clear indications that there were lapses in the interpretations of both the CIA and FBI.

Coupled to the warnings that Mossad arranged to be passed through French intelligence and which Coleen Rowley has used to lambaste her chief, FBI director Robert Mueller, the failure to act assumes frightening proportions.

The revelations make a mockery of George Tenet’s claim that he was “proud” of the CIA’s record. Its embattled director, currently in Israel trying to broker a doomed peace deal, has found in his absence that his own staff are admitting to mistakes.

“Part of the problem is that the CIA and FBI are loath to share vital information with each other, or with other government agencies because they have this deep-seated fear of compromising their own sources,” a senior State Department analyst told Globe-Intel.

But in the coming days the relationship between Mossad and the CIA and FBI will become the subject of close scrutiny in the closed hearings of the intelligence committees picking their way through the mass of documents now in their possession.

It is beginning to emerge that intelligence relating to pre-September 11 stopped at the desk of National Security Adviser, Condoleezza Rice.

The question as to why the President was not fully briefed has led to others. Had a decision been taken by Rice in consultation with Secretary of Defense and other high-ranking members of the Bush Administration to effectively not inform Bush of what was developing because they did not trust his limited experience in dealing with global terrorism – or a major threat of any kind?

Officially such a question is dismissed around the White House as nonsensical. Yet it persists within the State Department – where Secretary of State Colin Powell remains outside the charmed inner circle surrounding Bush.

There, senior officials point to the fact that the CIA briefing to Bush last August, less than a month before the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, turned out to be conspicuous by what was not said.

Yet, at that time the CIA knew of the impending threat. There are other pointers that the President may have been kept out of the loop.

Within his own circle there is a determination to distance him from taking the advice of his father. President George Bush Snr is seen by some in the White House as being out of touch with todays world. And that the advice he proffers his son during their Texas cookouts is out-moded.

All this may go some way to explain why President Bush has now publicly acknowledged there was an intelligence failure. Much else will flow from that.

The Israeli Dimension • Stratfor

The big winner today, intended or not, is the state of Israel.

Israel has been under siege by suicide bombers for more than a year. It has responded by waging a systematic war against Palestinian command structures. The international community, particularly the United States, has pressured Israel heavily to stop its operations. The argument has been made that the threat of suicide bombings, though real, does not itself constitute a genuine threat to Israeli national security and should not trigger the kind of response Israel is making.

Today’s events change all of this.

First, the United States no longer can argue that Israel should endure the bombings. Moving forward, the domestic American political mood simply won’t tolerate such a stance.

Second, Israel now becomes, once again, an indispensable ally to the United States. The United States is obviously going to launch a massive covert and overt war against the international radical Islamic movement that is assumed to be behind this attack. Not only does this align U.S. and Israeli interests but it also makes the United States dependent on the Israelis — whose intelligence capabilities in this area as well as covert operational capabilities are clearly going to be needed.

There is no question, therefore, that the Israeli leadership is feeling relief. Given that pressures for Israel to restrain operations against the Palestinian Authority and other Palestinian groups will decline dramatically, it might be expected that Yasser Arafat, anticipating this evolution, will rapidly change his position on suicide bombings and become more accommodating to Israel. In effect, today’s events have wrecked Arafat’s nearly successful drive to split the United States from Israel.

Given that the bombers are not fools, they undoubtedly understood that this would be a consequence. Their reasoning appears to be that of Lenin: “Better fewer, but better.” In other words, they see Arafat and many others in the Arab world as weak and indecisive. They are prepared to split the Arab world between two camps in which they — though smaller and weaker — hold the imagination of the Islamic masses as well as control the tempo of events.

The greatest question right now is this: Which Islamic state was involved in the attack? We suspect that there was such involvement. The sophistication required means of communication and transport available only to states. Afghanistan does not have the international facilities needed. We assume that Sudanese and Iraqi diplomatic communications and transport are both too closely monitored to be useful. If that is true, what other nation provided support facilities for this operation? Answering that question speaks to the future of the region.

Larry Silverstein: I decided to rebuild World Trade Center just 2 days post-9/11 #wtc #september11 #terrorism #nyc

Speaking to Israeli TV, American businessman describes how he bought Twin Towers 7 weeks before the 2001 terror attacks, and how a dermatologist appointment saved his life that day

Lucky Larry

Ahead of the 20th anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks, American businessman Larry Silverstein recounted to an Israeli television network how he had purchased the Twin Towers in New York just seven weeks before they came down, how he himself survived by a “miracle,” and how he announced his intention to rebuild the World Trade Center just two days later.

Silverstein, 90, told Channel 13 news in an interview aired Tuesday that he had decided to purchase the World Trade Center buildings in Lower Manhattan in July 2001 because “I saw it as a vast opportunity, and that’s why we paid 3.2 billion dollars to acquire it.”

The buildings, which Silverstein leased for 99 years, collapsed just seven weeks later when Islamist terrorists crashed planes into each of the Twin Towers, killing 2,606 people.

“The day was a terrible day for the world,” Silverstein said. “Miraculously, I’m alive. I’m here, which is a miracle.”

In the weeks after the purchase, Silverstein would regularly meet some of the World Trade Center tenants at a restaurant on one of the upper floors, he said.

“So that morning, I was dressing to get downtown to meet with one of the tenants, and my wife said: ‘You can’t go.’ And I said: ‘Why? I have an appointment downtown.’ She said: ‘Because I made an appointment for you with a dermatologist, and that’s something you canceled last month and you cannot cancel again.’

“When you’re married for 45 years to the same woman and she gets upset, you can’t let that happen,” Silverstein said.

That appointment ended up saving his life.

Silverstein said he had made up his mind to rebuild almost immediately after the attack.

He said he told his wife: “Sweetheart, I think we’re gonna have to rebuild this, and the sooner we get on with it, the better.”

“I remember the governor, [then-New York] Governor [George] Pataki, calling me, I think two days after 9/11, asking me what I think we oughta do, should we rebuild,” Silverstein recounted. “And I said, Governor, I think we must. I really think it’s absolutely obligatory. We’ve gotta put this back as quickly as we possibly can.

“It was, I think, two weeks after 9/11 that our first design meeting was [held],” he added. “I brought everyone back for the redesign of this building, Seven World Trade Center, because this was the last building to come down on 9/11, and we decided it was the first building that was gonna go back up after 9/11.”

Seven World Trade Center was a smaller building that collapsed on the day of the attack, due to the damage caused by the collapse of the two towers.

Silverstein hailed the success of the rebuilt World Trade Center, saying it had helped transform the area back into a bustling business center.

“The quality of what’s here has totally changed, the neighborhood’s changed,” he said. “There are so many families living here right now. All kinds of new apartment houses. A completely different environment here, in Lower Manhattan. And 28 percent of the people who live here work here at the Trade Center or work downtown. That’s the highest work-live ratio in the entire United States.”

9/11 was a false flag operation planned by Zionist agents: French anthropologist • #zionism #falseFlag #wtc #war

9/11 was an operation planned and executed by Zionist agents infiltrated in the highest level of U.S. administration and controlling the U.S. and European mainstream media, for the purpose of drawing the U.S. into wars against the enemies of Israel,” says Guyénot, the author of “JFK-9/11: 50 Years of Deep State”.
Noting that Zionists have a significant influence on U.S. foreign policy, he says “Israel, understood as an international community, is a parasite that has taken almost total control of American foreign policy.”
“Moreover,” he adds, “Jewish Zionists have acquired control of all major news media. They control the narrative. In these conditions, it is very difficult for U.S. patriots to expose Israel’s crime.”
Here is the text of the interview with Guyénot:

Q: Your book entitled “JFK-9/11” has gained a great attraction worldwide and surprisingly it was removed from Amazon. Please explain your motivation for writing this book?
A: I became aware of the gigantic lie of the 9/11 official story about ten years ago, as I was finishing my doctorate thesis on medieval history. I was appalled by the evilness of those who killed thousands of their own citizens in order to blame Muslims and to justify their neo-colonial wars. I decided to explore all the possible angles of this historical event, and I spent hundreds of hours reading books and searching for information in 9/11 truth websites, with the aim, initially, of producing a short synthesis for the French public, since the French are notoriously poor in the English language. As I tried to understand how a false flag of that magnitude was possible, I felt the need to study American recent history and became fascinated by the JFK assassination, realizing that the official lie concerning JFK was the foundation that made the 9/11 deception possible. I also became increasingly aware that both 9/11 and the Kennedy assassinations (John’s and Robert’s) bear the signature of Israel. So, the main focus of my book, published in 2014, became to expose Israel’s role in those operations, and the way Israel came to control U.S. foreign and military policy through such operations.

Q: Could you please tell us about the reactions to your book?
A: Predictably, my book was ignored by the mainstream media, but slowly gained notoriety by word of mouth, and became the best-seller of Progressive Press, with close to a hundred mostly positive comments on Amazon. A few months ago, though, Amazon suddenly deleted my book from all their sites, most probably as part of a general policy to censor books incriminating Israel.

Q: Do you think 9/11 was a terrorist attack? Please give us your reasons.
A: 9/11 was a false flag operation planned and executed by Zionist agents infiltrated in the highest level of U.S. administration and controlling the U.S. and European mainstream media, for the purpose of drawing the US into wars against the enemies of Israel. Osama Bin Laden had nothing to do with it, as he himself declared on several occasions in the Pakistani press.
It has been clearly proven that the official narrative about what happened on September 11, 2001, is a web of lies. For example, members of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth have demonstrated that it was impossible for plane crashes and jet fuel fires to trigger the collapse of the Twin Towers. It is also impossible that WTC7, another skyscraper (47 stories), which had not been hit by a plane, collapsed into its own footprint at near free-fall speed, unless by “controlled demolition.”
When we examine closely the profile of those involved in the preparation of the attacks on the World Trade Center, we find a network of super-sayanim closely connected to the Likud and to Benjamin Netanyahu. The most representative of this super-sayanim is, of course, Larry Silverstein, the real estate shark who, with his partner Frank Lowy, leased the Twin Towers from New York City in the spring of 2001. Silverstein is a leading member of the United Jewish Appeal Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of New York, the biggest fundraiser for Israel. He also maintained “close ties with Netanyahu,” according to Haaretz (November 21, 2001), to the point that “every Sunday afternoon, New York time, Netanyahu would call Silverstein.”

Q: What was the role of Neocons in 9/11?
A: Those who call themselves neoconservatives are Jewish crypto-Zionists posturing as American imperialists. These include dozens of high officials who took control of key positions under the administration of President George W. Bush. The most important were Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, and Douglas Feith in the Pentagon, David Wurmser at the State Department, and Philip Zelikow, Elliott Abrams, and later Eliot Cohen at the National Security Council. In 1996, the neoconservatives had founded the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), directed by William Kristol and Robert Kagan. They draped themselves in the super-patriotic discourse of America’s civilizing mission, but their duplicity is exposed in a document brought to public knowledge in 2008: a report published in 1996 by the Israeli think tank Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies (IASPS), entitled A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm, written specifically for the new Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, encouraging him to break with the Oslo Accords and expand Israel’s territory. The team responsible for the report was led by Richard Perle and included Douglas Feith and David Wurmser, who figured the same year among the signatories of PNAC.

Q: How do you see the relationship between 9/11 and neocons’ plan for the Afghanistan and Iraq invasions?
A: In its September 2000 report entitled Rebuilding America’s Defenses, PNAC anticipated that U.S. forces must become “able to rapidly deploy and win multiple simultaneous large-scale wars.” Unfortunately, according to the authors of the report, “the process of transformation […] is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event—like a new Pearl Harbor.” One year later, they got exactly what they needed: 9/11 was their new Pearl Harbor. Just two hours after the pulverization of the North Tower, Jewish neocon (Lewis) Paul Bremer, the chairman of the National Commission on Terrorism, appeared on NBC to compare the event with Pearl Harbor and name bin Laden as the prime suspect. Almost simultaneously, Ehud Barak was on BBC World to point the finger at bin Laden and concluded: “It’s a time to launch an operational, complete war against terror.”
Afghanistan was of no great interest to the neocons. Iraq was the first target, with Syria and Iran next on the list. That is why on September 19 and 20, Richard Perle’s Defense Policy Board met in the company of Paul Wolfowitz and Bernard Lewis (inventor of the self-fulfilling prophecy of the “clash of civilizations”) but in the absence of Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, and prepared a letter to President Bush, on PNAC letterhead, to remind him of his historic mission: “Even if evidence does not link Iraq directly to the attack, any strategy aiming at the eradication of terrorism and its sponsors must include a determined effort to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq. Failure to undertake such an effort will constitute an early and perhaps decisive surrender in the war on international terrorism.” This was an ultimatum. Bush was certainly aware of the leverage that the neocons had acquired over the major print and television media. He was blackmailed into endorsing the invasion of Iraq that his father had refused the Zionists ten years earlier.

Q: Near two decades have passed since 9/11, and many questions remain unanswered. In your view, why is the U.S. delaying the truth about what happened on September 11, 2001?
A: Israel, understood as an international community, is a parasite that has taken almost total control of American foreign policy. Moreover, Jewish Zionists have acquired control of all major news media. They control the narrative. In these conditions, it is very difficult for U.S. patriots to expose Israel’s crime. Many were hoping that Trump would do it. He knows, of course, that 9/11 was not the official story. On the very day of 9/11, he was interviewed, as a specialist of steel-framed skyscrapers and expressed his disbelief at the notion that the planes could penetrate the towers and cause their collapse. Unfortunately, Trump has not yet opened a new investigation, and I doubt that he will if he is reelected.

Five Israelis were seen filming as jet liners ploughed into the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001 …
1st November 2003

THERE was ruin and terror in Manhattan, but, over the Hudson River in New Jersey, a handful of men were dancing. As the World Trade Centre burned and crumpled, the five men celebrated and filmed the worst atrocity ever committed on American soil as it played out before their eyes.

Who do you think they were? Palestinians? Saudis? Iraqis, even? Al-Qaeda, surely? Wrong on all counts. They were Israelis – and at least two of them were Israeli intelligence agents, working for Mossad, the equivalent of MI6 or the CIA.

Their discovery and arrest that morning is a matter of indisputable fact. To those who have investigated just what the Israelis were up to that day, the case raises one dreadful possibility: that Israeli intelligence had been shadowing the al-Qaeda hijackers as they moved from the Middle East through Europe and into America where they trained as pilots and prepared to suicide-bomb the symbolic heart of the United States. And the motive? To bind America in blood and mutual suffering to the Israeli cause.

After the attacks on New York and Washington, the former Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, was asked what the terrorist strikes would mean for US-Israeli relations. He said: “It’s very good.” Then he corrected himself, adding: “Well, it’s not good, but it will generate immediate sympathy for Israel from Americans.”

If Israel’s closest ally felt the collective pain of mass civilian deaths at the hands of terrorists, then Israel would have an unbreakable bond with the world’s only hyperpower and an effective free hand in dealing with the Palestinian terrorists who had been murdering its innocent civilians as the second intifada dragged on throughout 2001.

It’s not surprising that the New Jersey housewife who first spotted the five Israelis and their white van wants to preserve her anonymity. She’s insisted that she only be identified as Maria. A neighbour in her apartment building had called her just after the first strike on the Twin Towers. Maria grabbed a pair of binoculars and, like millions across the world, she watched the horror of the day unfold.

As she gazed at the burning towers, she noticed a group of men kneeling on the roof of a white van in her parking lot. Here’s her recollection: “They seemed to be taking a movie. They were like happy, you know … they didn’t look shocked to me. I thought it was strange.”

Maria jotted down the van’s registration and called the police. The FBI was alerted and soon there was a statewide all points bulletin put out for the apprehension of the van and its occupants. The cops traced the number, establishing that it belonged to a company called Urban Moving.

Police Chief John Schmidig said: “We got an alert to be on the lookout for a white Chevrolet van with New Jersey registration and writing on the side. Three individuals were seen celebrating in Liberty State Park after the impact. They said three people were jumping up and down.”

By 4pm on the afternoon of September 11, the van was spotted near New Jersey’s Giants stadium. A squad car pulled it over and inside were five men in their 20s. They were hustled out of the car with guns levelled at their heads and handcuffed.

In the car was $4700 in cash, a couple of foreign passports and a pair of box cutters – the concealed Stanley Knife-type blades used by the 19 hijackers who’d flown jetliners into the World Trade Centre and Pentagon just hours before. There were also fresh pictures of the men standing with the smouldering wreckage of the Twin Towers in the background. One image showed a hand flicking a lighter in front of the devastated buildings, like a fan at a pop concert. The driver of the van then told the arresting officers: “We are Israeli. We are not your problem. Your problems are our problems. The Palestinians are the problem.”

His name was Sivan Kurzberg. The other four passengers were Kurzberg’s brother Paul, Yaron Shmuel, Oded Ellner and Omer Marmari. The men were dragged off to prison and transferred out of the custody of the FBI’s Criminal Division and into the hands of their Foreign Counterintelligence Section – the bureau’s anti-espionage squad.

A warrant was issued for a search of the Urban Moving premises in Weehawken in New Jersey. Boxes of papers and computers were removed. The FBI questioned the firm’s Israeli owner, Dominik Otto Suter, but when agents returned to re-interview him a few days later, he was gone. An employee of Urban Moving said his co-workers had laughed about the Manhattan attacks the day they happened. “I was in tears,” the man said. “These guys were joking and that bothered me. These guys were like, Now America knows what we go through.'”

Vince Cannistraro, former chief of operations for counter-terrorism with the CIA, says the red flag went up among investigators when it was discovered that some of the Israelis’ names were found in a search of the national intelligence database. Cannistraro says many in the US intelligence community believed that some of the Israelis were working for Mossad and there was speculation over whether Urban Moving had been “set up or exploited for the purpose of launching an intelligence operation against radical Islamists”.

This makes it clear that there was no suggestion whatsoever from within American intelligence that the Israelis were colluding with the 9/11 hijackers – simply that the possibility remains that they knew the attacks were going to happen, but effectively did nothing to help stop them.

After the owner vanished, the offices of Urban Moving looked as if they’d been closed down in a big hurry. Mobile phones were littered about, the office phones were still connected and the property of at least a dozen clients were stacked up in the warehouse. The owner had cleared out his family home in New Jersey and returned to Israel.

Two weeks after their arrest, the Israelis were still in detention, held on immigration charges. Then a judge ruled that they should be deported. But the CIA scuppered the deal and the five remained in custody for another two months. Some went into solitary confinement, all underwent two polygraph tests and at least one underwent up to seven lie detector sessions before they were eventually deported at the end of November 2001. Paul Kurzberg refused to take a lie detector test for 10 weeks, but then failed it. His lawyer said he was reluctant to take the test as he had once worked for Israeli intelligence in another country.

Nevertheless, their lawyer, Ram Horvitz, dismissed the allegations as “stupid and ridiculous”. Yet US government sources still maintained that the Israelis were collecting information on the fundraising activities of groups like Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Mark Regev, of the Israeli embassy in Washington, would have none of that and he said the allegations were “simply false”. The men themselves claimed they’d read about the World Trade Centre attacks on the internet, couldn’t see it from their office and went to the parking lot for a better view. Their lawyers and the embassy say their ghoulish and sinister celebrations as the Twin Towers blazed and thousands died were due to youthful foolishness.

The respected New York Jewish newspaper, The Forward, reported in March 2002, however, that it had received a briefing on the case of the five Israelis from a US official who was regularly updated by law enforcement agencies. This is what he told The Forward: “The assessment was that Urban Moving Systems was a front for the Mossad and operatives employed by it.” He added that “the conclusion of the FBI was that they were spying on local Arabs”, but the men were released because they “did not know anything about 9/11”.

Back in Israel, several of the men discussed what happened on an Israeli talk show. One of them made this remarkable comment: “The fact of the matter is we are coming from a country that experiences terror daily. Our purpose was to document the event.” But how can you document an event unless you know it is going to happen?

We are now deep in conspiracy theory territory. But there is more than a little circumstantial evidence to show that Mossad – whose motto is “By way of deception, thou shalt do war” – was spying on Arab extremists in the USA and may have known that September 11 was in the offing, yet decided to withhold vital information from their American counterparts which could have prevented the terror attacks.

Following September 11, 2001, more than 60 Israelis were taken into custody under the Patriot Act and immigration laws. One highly placed investigator told Carl Cameron of Fox News that there were “tie-ins” between the Israelis and September 11; the hint was clearly that they’d gathered intelligence on the planned attacks but kept it to themselves.

The Fox News source refused to give details, saying: “Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It’s classified information.” Fox News is not noted for its condemnation of Israel; it’s a ruggedly patriotic news channel owned by Rupert Murdoch and was President Bush’s main cheerleader in the war on terror and the invasion of Iraq.

Another group of around 140 Israelis were detained prior to September 11, 2001, in the USA as part of a widespread investigation into a suspected espionage ring run by Israel inside the USA. Government documents refer to the spy ring as an “organised intelligence-gathering operation” designed to “penetrate government facilities”. Most of those arrested had served in the Israeli armed forces – but military service is compulsory in Israel. Nevertheless, a number had an intelligence background.

The first glimmerings of an Israeli spying exercise in the USA came to light in spring 2001, when the FBI sent a warning to other federal agencies alerting them to be wary of visitors calling themselves “Israeli art students” and attempting to bypass security at federal buildings in order to sell paintings. A Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) report suggested the Israeli calls “may well be an organised intelligence-gathering activity”. Law enforcement documents say that the Israelis “targeted and penetrated military bases” as well as the DEA, FBI and dozens of government facilities, including secret offices and the unlisted private homes of law enforcement and intelligence personnel.

number of Israelis questioned by the authorities said they were students from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, but Pnina Calpen, a spokeswoman for the Israeli school, did not recognise the names of any Israelis mentioned as studying there in the past 10 years. A federal report into the so-called art students said many had served in intelligence and electronic signal intercept units during their military service.

According to a 61-page report, drafted after an investigation by the DEA and the US immigration service, the Israelis were organised into cells of four to six people. The significance of what the Israelis were doing didn’t emerge until after September 11, 2001, when a report by a French intelligence agency noted “according to the FBI, Arab terrorists and suspected terror cells lived in Phoenix, Arizona, as well as in Miami and Hollywood, Florida, from December 2000 to April 2001 in direct proximity to the Israeli spy cells”.

The report contended that Mossad agents were spying on Mohammed Atta and Marwan al-Shehi, two of leaders of the 9/11 hijack teams. The pair had settled in Hollywood, Florida, along with three other hijackers, after leaving Hamburg – where another Mossad team was operating close by.

Hollywood in Florida is a town of just 25,000 souls. The French intelligence report says the leader of the Mossad cell in Florida rented apartments “right near the apartment of Atta and al-Shehi”. More than a third of the Israeli “art students” claimed residence in Florida. Two other Israelis connected to the art ring showed up in Fort Lauderdale. At one time, eight of the hijackers lived just north of the town.

Put together, the facts do appear to indicate that Israel knew that 9/11, or at least a large-scale terror attack, was about to take place on American soil, but did nothing to warn the USA. But that’s not quite true. In August 2001, the Israelis handed over a list of terrorist suspects – on it were the names of four of the September 11 hijackers. Significantly, however, the warning said the terrorists were planning an attack “outside the United States”.

The Israeli embassy in Washington has dismissed claims about the spying ring as “simply untrue”. The same denials have been issued repeatedly by the five Israelis seen high-fiving each other as the World Trade Centre burned in front of them.

Their lawyer, Ram Horwitz, insisted his clients were not intelligence officers. Irit Stoffer, the Israeli foreign minister, said the allegations were “completely untrue”. She said the men were arrested because of “visa violations”, adding: “The FBI investigated those cases because of 9/11.”

Jim Margolin, an FBI spokesman in New York, implied that the public would never know the truth, saying: “If we found evidence of unauthorised intelligence operations that would be classified material.” Yet, Israel has long been known, according to US administration sources, for “conducting the most aggressive espionage operations against the US of any US ally”. Seventeen years ago, Jonathan Pollard, a civilian working for the American Navy, was jailed for life for passing secrets to Israel. At first, Israel claimed Pollard was part of a rogue operation, but the government later took responsibility for his work.

It has always been a long-accepted agreement among allies – such as Britain and America or America and Israel – that neither country will jail a “friendly spy” nor shame the allied country for espionage. Chip Berlet, a senior analyst at Boston’s Political Research Associates and an expert in intelligence, says: “It’s a backdoor agreement between allies that says that if one of your spies gets caught and didn’t do too much harm, he goes home. It goes on all the time. The official reason is always visa violation.”

What we are left with, then, is fact sullied by innuendo. Certainly, it seems, Israel was spying within the borders of the United States and it is equally certain that the targets were Islamic extremists probably linked to September 11. But did Israel know in advance that the Twin Towers would be hit and the world plunged into a war without end; a war which would give Israel the power to strike its enemies almost without limit? That’s a conspiracy theory too far, perhaps. But the unpleasant feeling that, in this age of spin and secrets, we do not know the full and unadulterated truth won’t go away. Maybe we can guess, but it’s for the history books to discover and decide.

Real Grug-Brain Explanation of the Ideologies of Democracy, a Republic, Libertarianism, Communism and (actual) Fascism ÷ Zionism, Globohomo, Sayanim Dual Citizenship, Virus Regime, the System

A prelude…you should read this incredibly salient, cogent essay that was written nearly thirty years ago, before the internet was even public:

Then I have to tell you it was written by the Unabomber. Had he chosen to mail this essay, instead of explosive devices, who knows, he may have been made EMPORER.

Democracy: there is a system of voting, with which the majority vote creates policy. There is no restrictions on what can be changed.

Republic: there is a system of voting, with which majority vote creates policy, however, there is an irrevocable doctrine (in America it’s called the Constitution) with which all policy must adhere to Constitutional Law.

Libertarianism: this ideology is one that believes in a stateless society. There is an understanding amongst members of society of a non-aggression principle, interpret that as you will. Everyone has castle law type rights over their property and their rights to generate economic growth. It’s a nice idea, however, in a multicultural, consumerist, nihilistic, borderless society it is inevitable that conflicting cultures will not adhere to the Lolebretarian NAP. So in reality, this is a recipe for all out anarchy. The purveyors of this ideology do indeed offer excellent insight and critique of our modern day piss-earth, corporate controlled Neo-Liberal capitalist hellscape. Libertarianism is best left as a philosophy.

Here, from the horse’s mouth:

Alot to say…Libertarianism that is.

As far as a system?

It can’t be adapted given the material conditions of our reality.

Libertarians are bound to wake up to the fact that monolithic, ethnocentric, homogeneous communities are necessary to even think of implementation. Then they realize it’s impossible. Where do they go next?

Communism: this system abandons any type of voting and what not, petitioning to the leaders of the communist system may enact change. A primary element of this ideology is that societal class, ie, the affluent v the poor, class is eliminated. The “workers” own the means of production. However, there is a superior body that rules over the workers. It wouldn’t work well in the current year, nor any year, going forward. I care not to explain the realities of the Bolshevik Revolution. If you have had your head up your Reddit ass for the last five years than you missed this one:

There are many augmentations of Marxism. Spend your own twenty years studying this. Then tell me your thoughts.

I care not to explain to fucking retards what North Korean Juche is and why it works.

Nor will I engage in ZOG-styled, Neo-Liberal criticism of the CCP. Many people are unaware of the undertaking of the Chimericafication of China spearheaded by David Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger in the 1970s. It’s called the Trilateral Commission and it’s another one of those ridiculous conspiracy theories that Slate, Salon, Mother Jones, Vox, NY Times, etc have relegated as such. At the behest of the ADL. So that’s that. It never happened.

The moves that men with the power that Kissinger and Rockefeller have – this is what leads to seismic shifts in economic frameworks, like NAFTA. But Washington Post and The Atlantic forget NAFTA ever happened. Fuck, even the Economist (owned by Rothschild), Barron’s, Forbes, Bloomberg, Fortune, Wall Street Journal…haven’t mentioned NAFTA since, well, forever. So therefore American manufacturing was never relocated to China, amongst other places. American production of consumer goods never left America. Walmart sells all American products right?

China welcomed investment into infrastructure. It’s called trade. America as of late engages in too much financialization for it to be called trade.

China has the Belt and Road Initiative. They trade infrastructure for resources. And it’s working. It’s big.

To demonstrate that national sovereignty is antiquated in the hearts and minds and actions of the Supranational Globalist Machine, take a look at BlackRock (which manages $10 trillion dollars) as it has invested complex mezzanine financial instruments with the CCP. Larry Fink, the Founder and CEO of BlackRock also is on the Board of Directors of the World Economic Forum. And the Council on Foreign Relations. This is what a globalist is. Do you think this swinging dick gives a fuck about your Constitution?

BlackRock runs the show.

Most of those aspiring for an American Soy-Viet union have absolutely zero sense of Eastern thought. Asian ways of thinking. The patience that they have, in general, in aggregate, versus, let’s say, wiggers that harp on sneaker-head websites waiting for the next $500 pair of Jordans to drop. And drop half a week’s pay on a pair of sneakers. Which is nice to treat yourself. But what about the 666 other pairs of sneakers you have? Why do you live at your parents house at age 37? Nice lambo-feeties. Chevrolegz. And while the Church hangs the flag of Globohomo to keep donations coming in to Joel Osteen types and the State Department hung the same flag at the embassy in Afghanistan a meager few months before Afghanistan was reclaimed by Afghan tribes, in the form of a collective called the Taliban. Fuck you George Bush/Floyd worshiping wiggers. Enjoy your sneakers. WordStar nigggggggggaaaaaa!!!!!!!

Globohomogayplex-BatFlu Virus Regime-BLM-LGBTQIAAPPCNNMSNBCJEW-Hydrogen-Bomb-Thing-Secured Via SURVEILLANCE (the current ideology the United States of Weimerica is operating under):

A primer: what is this Globohomo?

This is what we have now. Some ten, maybe five years ago those in the neo-reactionary, dark enlightenment, dissident right, Third Position, traditionalist circles called this reality clownworld. Even classic liberals (who believe in free speech, anti-war, anti-corporatist, pro-worker) grew dissatisfied with the direction the Left had taken. There was already something brewing. Those that understand history, within the framework of pattern recognition when sequenced across complex, multifaceted, highly complicated systems, know things happen. Big things. Things that hit you over the fucking head like a frying pan. Right in your fucking face. Again and again. Like September 11. And the coverup of the real conspirators. The Iraq war lies. War crime to the highest magnitude yet I recall the anticipation of “shock and awe” was turned into an IMAX-3D-4K-Dolby Surround Sound-Blow Your Fucking Ear Drums Out-type of media production like Hollywood would author (the same people that run Hollywood, Broadway, etc also run the Media, it’s the same people. Look at shareholders, Boards of Directors, PR releases, SEC filings – it’s all public record and for those that brush this off as a “conspiracy theory” then I suggest you get back to watching Rachel Maddow – why are you all obsessed with the anti-vax, white right?) Yeah. The sensationalism of war combined with the Call of Duty video game infused sizzle baked into recruiting young men to join in the fight in the War on Terror ™, Nation Building ™ and Democracy ™. Then came “hope and change”. The Patriot Act is still in full effect as is taxpayer funding of Palestinian destruction. Libya’s Mu’ammar Al-Qadhdhāfī demonized when he challenged the Petrodollar system, then NATO (which was created to confront the Soviet Union – long gone since, literally, the elder Bush was president) led the carpet bombing of Libya. Followed by the CIA-created jihadist Mercenaries to capture, torture and kill the man that kept Libya from falling deep into the permanent, asymmetrical battlefield it has become: a staging ground for weapons to be smuggled into Turkey, bound for ZOG-mercenaries in Syria. Benghazi anyone? Obama’s redline. Wait a second what the fuck are we in Syria for? Oh right, for Israel. Pardon me. I thought American Patriots were in control.

No. They aren’t in control. The world has yet to come to know and understand the indescribable, vastness of the Gislaine Maxwell/Jeffrey Epstein espionage operation and what was at stake. They got Lesley Wexner first. He’s the man that founded both Victoria’s Secret and Abercrombie and Fitch. He appointed Epstein as his financial advisor. He owned a townhouse in Manhattan worth $70 million dollars. The townhouse ownership was transferred to Epstein for zero in consideration. In contract law, more specifically, within a Transfer of Asset and Assignment of Ownership agreement, the term “consideration” means something of substance/value/material/necessity that is exchanged between parties. The thing is: the contract provisions must be lawful activities under the jurisdiction of the law, lawful activities monitored by the Secretary of State and Attorney General office of any given of the fifty United States. Lawful activities. So this transaction did not include any consideration received by Wexner (hmm kind of like the Balfour Declaration)The transfer couldn’t include the Wexner was fucking little boys and girls and was filmed unbeknownst to him and therefore he was now at the mercy of the blackmail operation. This is a Mossad operation. They nailed Clinton. Prince Andrew. Tony Blair. Bill Gates. Chris Tucker. Kevin Spacey. These are the popcorn headline worthy names. You must understand:

THEY FUCKING NAILED EVERYONE WHO IS IN THE DECISION MAKING CAPACITY TO DICTATE POLICY TO THE BENEFIT OF ISRAEL.

Take a close look. Or reverse image search. If you miss it, you missed it

Have you seen the little black book? Have you seen the Lolita flight logs? They nailed everyone. In New York. Florida. New Mexico. France. And Little St. James Island. And the Kabbalah symbolism draped over this whole thing is right there in your fucking face and if you still are hung up on who or what this Illuminati/globalist/elite/satanic cabal/etc is then you are either inept or afraid to call into question the values instilled upon you by your public K-12 education. Three values: Civil War was to end slavery, Martin Luther King was a beacon of hope and the Holocaust was the worst atrocity in the history of mankind. All three of these things didn’t happen as you were told they happened.

It’s more like a war of Northern aggression, a black figurehead (with multiple criminal complaints brought against him by women, squashed outside of court) and the Holodomor, no I meant the Holocaust. Sorry I forgot. I’ll never forget. That Israel did 9/11.

Zionist interests plotted 9/11. Research Operation Northwoods. Drone technology was available in 1962, fuck, in 2001 I would bet my left testicle the technology improved. Look at the Office of Special Planning. Look at PNAC. Look at Larry Silverstein’s business moves. Zim Shipping. Michael Chertoff. Paul Wolfowitz. Leo Strauss. Halliburton. Blackwater. Harry Jaffa. Irving Kristol. Ariel Sharon. Mossad.

Too many people are obsessed with Mossad without consideration for infrastructure Israel has in place for Mossad to succeed.

Do you know what the Sayanim is? Of all the hundreds of articles I’ve read out there – from Unz to Global Research to Smoothie12 to everywhere – no one talks about the Sayanim. They are unpaid Jewish civilians that help Mossad out of a sense of devotion for Israel. Admittedly, there are tens of thousands of operatives active in the United States right now, at this fucking minute. I know for a fact this number is largely under reported.

Many are dual-citizens. Obtaining dual citizenship is part of the playbook in this sophisticated operation. Sayanim assist the Mossad with logistics worldwide. The Mossad is in the business of sabotage, espionage, blackmail, assassination – by any means necessary they are operating with malicious intent at the behest of the Greater Israel Project for it is prophecy. America is a Zionist Occupied Government.

Sayanim operate in the Canada, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Columbia, Brazil, Peru, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Hungary, Poland, Czechia, Slovakia, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, Luxembourg, Litchenstein, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Croatia, Serbia, Greece, Malta, Turkey, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Pakistan, India, Russia, China, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Uganda, Kenya, South Africa, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Senegal, Morocco, Tunisia….then the places that may surprise you: Iran (yes Iran), Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, North FUCKING Korea, PALESTINE…

Still lost on this Zionism thing?

What else is there to say? The queer/feminist/BIPOC agendas are all the same type of thing – the forced political correctness down our fucking throats and being made to accept that somehow we are all equal…the same people that want to celebrate our differences, via diversity….say we are all equal…the agenda is overwhelming…it’s another angle of the attack on the American ethnicity (yes, America is a nation, not an idea. There was once something called an American. Read the 1790 Immigration and Naturalization Act to gain an understanding of what ethnic traits define an American.)

Read these:

Holy fucking shit where are we now?

Basically, everything that Western Civilization has ever produced, ranging from Greek legends like Aristotle, Socrates, Alexander the Great, to Romans like Augustus, to Kings and Queens, to Napoleon, to The Canon, to Beethoven, to Mozart. Isaac Newton. Darwin. George Washington. Abraham Lincoln. Robert E Lee. Eisenhower.

We have this Tetragrammaton fiat-debt-death grip legerdemain system controlled by outside forces and a lugenpresse as it’s mouthpiece. It’s a big partnership amongst elected officials, law enforcement, moguls of finance, industry, media, telecommunications, infrastructure, consumer goods, professional services, healthcare, pharmaceutical companies, academia, religious institutions, charitable foundations, NGOs, not-for-profits, think tanks, SURVEILLANCE, CENSORSHIP, BIG TECH and your narrow-minded neighbor who wears four masks. Your vote doesn’t count. The 2020 election was fraudulent as fuck. Look back at 2000 and that too was fraudulent. It’s all fraudulent. Voting and left/right, liberal/conservative, democrat/republican…neatly pigeon whole the peasants into bickering over gun control, abortion, taxes, military spending, social programs, etc. Nothing really changes to the actual betterment of the common people. The notion this is still a Republic, or that Davos-flavored Democracy is in effect is a rouse and that’s perfect. Distract the feebleminded, fickle, fuckwitted swamp donkey consumerist liberal, self-loathing soyboys, bugmen, cat-lady, vax regime, illegal invader loving amalgamation of tranny penis sucking shit bag Trophozoites that worship Lady Gaga, Whoopy Goldberg, Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Ruth Ginsburg, George Jesus Christ Floyd, Don “white Cock Matters” Lemon and anyone that either lofts off their cock leaving behind an axe wound and calls it a neo-vagina. Or a woman that undergoes a hysterectomy , no an add-a-dick-to-me and is now a man. Only language is under a red-ant type assault on a pile of sugar that fell to the floor. Mankind is now people-kind, or some shit. Cultural misappropriation? How about this: the English Language belongs to Western Civilization, it is ours. What the fuck are you offended by if the West is cancelled? If it’s all cancelled and doesn’t exist, well, stop using our language. This is the furthest expanse of debate that’s attainable with Leftists vs. White People.

Another note: no self respecting White person would ever refer to themselves as a White Supremacist. If other races feel inferior and therefore attribute superiority to the White race, that’s their business.

But since the genocide of democracy sacred temple on January 6, 2021, it’s now state policy that Americans that value their Constitutional Law are enemies of the state.

And the virus. Yeah. We are so fucked.

Another important thing, Cryptocurrencies will be confiscated. It’s already begun:

When federal law enforcement agencies are making deals with your crypto wallet for the sake of surveillance, specifically, stated, within the deals themselves….there is nothing cryptic about your crypto. Your Crypto will be confiscated. That is an absolute certainty. It’s phased out of China. China has a digital currency they want to be universally adapted. Hence, mediums of exchange that bypass the state approved system must BE CRIMINALIZED.

What is the answer to all of this fuckery? Symbols tell the tale, my friend….

.

The Poisonous Spread of “Democracy” in the age of the newly defangled NEW WORLD ORDER – and the rising from the ashes of a New World Order once again.

The NWO as seen in 1990 died in 2020. The idea of a New World Order we lost alot, and worse here in America complete loss of trust in any government/media/bullshit narrative:

• The sensational attack on Iraq (which had legitimate beef with Kuwait). This was done under the guise of liberating Kuwait – when in fact this was done to entrench US Military assets permanently in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Jordan and Israel….at the behest of the wishes of the Zionist agenda for a Greater Israel Project.

• Waco – documented on the film “Waco – A New Revelation” , this is the most powerful expose of what really happened at the beginning of the standoff with a 4 hour gun battle raging between Waco compound Christians vs. ATF, DEA, FBI, State Police agents armed to the teeth for a blood bath. And how the fuckery intertwines with Texas State Government, the Clinton Administration…and how Delta Force (a shadow black ops force) officially ended the standoff providing military grade ammunition rounds, flame accelerants and tactical and logistical support. If you watch the documentary, there are dozens of former ATF, DEA, FBI, CIA, local Waco police, Texas State Police members (mostly former members) testify to the truth – Waco was a GAY-OP.

•Y2K… this was such a scam. Look at the power vacuum quickly usurped by this explosion in “security software” which actually created bloatware/spyware/adware/viruses/worms/trojan horses etc to make their bullshit software seem effective. Anyone that understands TCP/IP protocols and FTP/SSH/SSL and a bulk of these network telecommunications standards know that a PHYSICAL FIREWALL that manages layers of administrative access is the best way to reduce “h4XX0rz” ….

•The tech “dot com” stock bubble and Lead Zeppelin like crash. Financial analysts, advisors and planners as well as brokers etc had violated their FIDUCIARY DUTY to the PUBLIC TRUST by pushing fictious asset bubbles that were stocks trading at 247 times earnings – because they weren’t earning anything. Pets.com at one point was trading at like $400 share. All it was – was a domain. In the realms of private equity and venture capital this type of scenario is commonplace. That is, a business entity lacking actual business operations as well as any type of Immediate plan to launch an operation….pure SPECULATION AND MOMENTUM KILLED THE INVESTMENT MARKETS. Now 82 yo retired truckers in Nevada as well as 22 yo college students in Boston could electronically place stock trades – purely riding speculation and momentum. Very few people understood “day trading” The value of a capital investment – in financial/economic fundamental terms proper means “the net present value of future discounted cash flows.” These principals of the markets died with momentum and speculation based trading and hence the big tech dot com bubble crash in March 2000. With people having $500 in the bank yet they have leveraged 4x the amount of shares in Lucent Technologies, never realized any of the unrealized gains they had for they figured the boom times would last forever…and ended up in bankruptcy.

•Enron accounting fraud in collusion with their auditors Arthur Anderson CPA. Enron was bigger than Exxon Mobil – on paper. But their auditor (the auditor acts as a detective of the reasonableness and completeness of stated balance sheet account items as well as the yearly statement of operations aka income statement. It was quite obvious that AA, CPA was breaking their duty to the public trust and were entangled in the greatest financial conflict of interest of the new millennium as they were AIDING AND ABETTING the financial scheme which allowed Enron to bury losses through off balance sheet “variable interest entities”. These entities however would obtain millions even billions in funding. And Enron had tens of thousands of them. And they would take the monies that technically, in accounting terms, were loans or the fancy term “corporate debentures”. Therefore these monies should have been reported as LIABILITIES/DEBT. Instead the influx of the cash was recorded as REVENUE. Enron was the largest entity in market cap of all the energy companies circa 2000, battling with rivals Exxon Mobil and Gazprol. Enron even tricked their entire workforce to sink 100% of all of their retirement assets into Enron ESOP and Preferred Stock and Common Stock acquisitions. This was malicious in intent, made two years before the Enron collapse, which was a decade in the making. And those tens of thousands of ordinary working class people were left penniless in terms of retirement funds and had no where to turn. And the SEC, the regulatory body that is supposed to monitor such related party and offshore and off balance sheet events and transactions – dropped the fucking ball! Who got punished? A small handful of Enron executives , some of which took their own lives prior to facing the judgement of the court of law. This was the biggest erasure of net worth revolving around a SINGLE FUCKING BUSINESS. EVER. The impact on the prudence and viability and reliability and the skeptics new eye of the actual financial health and reality of publicly traded companies entered a new phase for fear. Let’s couple this with similar schemes at Tyco, WorldCom, there are many others.

• Then the planes hit the buildings. Men like Alex Jones who were laughed off as koooks and fear mongering desperados trying to make a buck saw this coming for years. Infact, there were multiple streams and live call in shows Alex Jones and Infowars (pre-Super Male Vitality horseshit days) from May 2001- August 2001 where Jones stated as clear as the night is day that “an attack is going to happen on the United States soil, a terrorist attack, to help usher in a police and welfare state as part of the NWO’s master plan for power over the people of the free world. Yeah, there were “radicalized Islamic Jihadists” that boarded those planes convinced they were on a holy mission. And for them, it very well was. However, the state’s official narrative that 19 men circled the globe and circumvented investigation and then successfully hijacked 4 large jumbo jets and crashed them into targets – this is only the Jihadists version. Perhaps aware, perhaps not, this was allowed to happen. The Israeli mossad agents dancing and lighting lighters and taking pictures admitted on a November nightly TV show in Israel that they were there to “document the event”. Ryan Dawson has done absolutely amazing work laying out in mind-blowing, explicit details and I highly suggest checking out his work for you to see the inner workings of the powers behind the 9/11 attack. Another thing, a man named Lyndon Larouche, a politician (Third Positionist) wanted to enter the Senate and begin to point out the major fuckery of our wages/prices disparity, over-aggressive appreciation in property values in record minimum time, he spoke about the Secret Police state, how no citizen is safe and how a Zionist cabal of international central banks was working to ultimately destroy the freedoms of the constitution. In January of 2001 – HE PREDICTED THE ATTACKS, THE NARRATIVE, THE RETALIATION AGAINST AFGANISTAN TALIBAN FOR HOUSING AL QAUDA – and finally how this would be the carrying out of Bill Kristol’s PNAC white paper – written in 1998. And Larouche got thrown into an investigation of filing inaccurate tax returns that landed him in federal felony territory. I myself have been a CPA since 2006 and I know the severity of the charges he faced – where to destroy his political career – for any ordinary tax payer may have made the same mistakes – it’s a 95% chance they would simply be mandated by the IRS to amend their returns. The fuckery of FREEDOM!




• AFGANISTAN war. Very ironic. For in 1979, THE US CIA, STATE DEPARTMENT, the Israeli Mossad, the British MI-6 and other glow in the dark CIA ninjas created the Mujahideen – Islamic Jihadists, mostly mercenaries that were not from Afganistan – they were armed to fight “Capitalism’s proxy war” against the USSR.

They were supplied with liquidity, weapons, training, logistics, food, medical supplies, tactical training. And one of the main assets of the Mujahideen was one Tim Osman. Aka Osama Bin-Laden. The book House of Bush, House of Saud does an excellent job of illustrating in detail the emergence of an alliance between the Bush family and it’s consortium of close ties, with both the Royal Saudi Family as well as the Bin-Laden dynasty – a very large electricity and commercial hardware powerhouse in the Middle East and surrounding areas (think General Electric, Honeywell sized – also think monopoly).

As the Afganistani native forces with heavy support from this Mujahideen apparatus never allowed the Soviets to take control of Afganistan and after a decades long campaign of guerilla warfare, the Mujahideen prevailed. Soon there after , with 2 years, the USSR fell.

The remnants of the Mujahideen were not that. No remnants. This was now a unique Pro-Islamic, Pro-protect vital resources, Anti-privatization, Anti-deregulation, Anti-Western value system, Anti-foreign intervention league of HOLY WARRIORS. And a generation went by (1989-1998) when the Mujahideen morphed and created new alliances, Sunni and Shiite alike, with Hamas, Hezbollah, Al-Nusra…there are many thousands of small factions over history the Mujahideen – renamed “Al-Queda” upon the day of the planes hitting the buildings in NYC and DC. Al-Queda simply means “the base” in Arabic.

What transpired was these Holy Warriors had a new enemy of oppression, new enemies and ideals intertwined with DEMOCRACY. 1. The aggressive actions of the Zionist ethnostate against Palestinian people, land and rights. 2. Companies like the now defunct Enron, also Chevron, Exxon Mobil, BP, etc absolutely ignoring the sovereignty of these Arabic nations and frankly coercing Arabic governments into taking loans from the International Monetary Fund that were destined to default. And default they did. And from Morocco to Libya to Tunisia to Lebanon to Afganistan – mega fossil fuel conglomerates were pillaging fossil fuels from the region. Amongst many more human atrocities never discussed under the banner of American Exceptionalism.

And US military assets became the police of the world for one key reason – to enforce the viability of the Petrodollar. Plainly stated, say the UN recognized 200 sovereign nations. Some 175 of them were REQUIRED to be in PHYSICAL POSSESSION of the DOLLAR to purchase Brent and Crude market oil.

The Afganistan war was tied into this. Also, the opportunity to seize control of 90% of the world’s poppy supply (used for oxycodone, heroin, etc). 20 years since 2001 we are still there…and for what? For the struggle of the precious resources – poppy – and pipelines.

• 2003, the Iraq war, marked the official downfall of America as the “do no wrong” world superpower. They wanted this war against Saddam Hussein and this had nothing to do with “SPREADING DEMOCRACY”.
