Oh, I learn so much by simply sitting back and watching my enemies…
Now, if somehow you’re just joining us now and don’t know who this is, I’d recommend reading my two previous articles on Franklin Leonard (one, two) wherein I build a case suggesting that Franklin Leonard is not the mere gatekeeper he claims to be, but actually a Cabal-affiliated operative embedded in Hollywood, whose explicit job is to suppress and choke out any narratives that don’t toe the “progressive,” increasingly-degenerate narratives Hollywood is so infamous for pushing on the rest of the world, year after year. In other words; a political operative masquerading as a “creative,” who has managed to garner an inordinate amount of influence over the industry in just a few short years, despite being on the vanguard of degenerate slop, and promoting financial flop after financial flop, (though he will bandy about heavily inflated statistics about Oscar noms and whatnot, while simultaneously failing to mention all the other lists which made the same predictions those years). Because, you know, a broken clock and all that. But hey, it’s not his money! It’s the studios who are losing, thanks to him, so what does he care? It’s all about creating a self-reinforcing cycle of self-promotion with Franklin, but his secret is he doesn’t do it alone. Oh no no no, not at all.
The amount of evidence of there being some kind of Cabal connection there is, frankly, overwhelming, which is why I now label Franklin a #SorosRentboy. So go back and read those articles if you need the background on the networks and people he’s promoting.
But the short of it is: he’s #Cabal scum, and affiliates almost exclusively with other Cabal scum.
Which is why, starting back in February, I was surprised to see Franklin Leonard, a man who has lived in Georgia, Hawaii, and LA… suddenly promoting the presidential campaign of a literal nobody…
…from South Bend, Indiana.
A town I can almost guarantee a smug, coastal “elite” (though truly, there’s nothing exceptional about him) like Franklin would never be caught dead in.
Meet “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg:
Now, some of you who follow me on Gab will already know where I’m heading with this, as I began to call out Buttigieg a couple weeks ago – but I want you to stay tuned, too, because I’ve since unearthed so much more than I originally anticipated. Long story short, if you’re paying attention, Buttigieg is suddenly everywhere – on every #LegacyMedia channel – to such an extent that… it almost seems…
Here’s a sampling of recent videos on Youtube alone. Note the names of the organizations putting this out there, as well as the timeframes:
Why, it’s a veritable Buttigieg Blitz! And he’s even now earning endorsements from former Democratic heavyweights, like Howard Dean:
“Mornin’ Joe” had this to say about the 37-year-old political wunderkind:
That’s a bold strategy, Joe, comparing him to Barack Obama! Well, since you’re doing it, I’m sure the Lefties won’t mind me drawing the same connection, and label Buttigieg #ObamaInWhiteface.
After all, that should be a compliment to him, right, Leftaroonies? RIGHT?
But who is this guy, exactly? Buttigieg was a complete unknown until just a few weeks ago, when he announced his Presidential campaign. And as of today, he’s either tied or tracking just above BIDEN(!!!) for 2020:
So where did this guy come from? What has he done? And what accounts for this sudden rise to prominence from utter obscurity?
I know it may be painful for my audience, but grit your teeth and watch this Trevor Noah clip to get a sense of the man, and how they’re already hailing him as some kind of Progressive Saint simply because… he’s a blank slate.
Interesting angle, right? Even Trevor Noah says that he’s skeptical of someone with no real baggage, but they literally couldn’t find anything bad about the guy to report on. The guy was valedictorian of his High school, went to Harvard, served in Afghanistan, and was a Rhodes scholar at Oxford. And all this before becoming a mayor, and now… running for president.
Why, according to his Wikipedia, the guy even saves rescue puppies! And just listen to how “well-spoken” he is!
It’s like Mr. Smith goes to Washington, if the titular Mr. Smith was a degenerate sodomite! (Hey Franklin, does that sound like a winning 2019 Black List script? Nah, you’re probably right. Not “trans-inclusive” enough for you these days, I’d imagine).
(But I have one tangential issue here I’d like to address before moving on, and it’s about Noah’s snide comment about Trump not knowing any languages -hurhurhur, the joke being that he doesn’t even know English hurdurhurdur #OrangeManBad, now everyone laugh robotically.
Well, newsflash, you incompetent rube: the evidence actually shows that Trump knows Korean, but is smart enough to keep it hidden from you idiots, for diplomatic and strategic purposes. Here’s Thomas Wictor on that doozy of a subject).
by Thomas Wictor Watch this video carefully. What does it tell you? It tells you that Donald Trump speaks Korean. He TWICE understood Kim Jong-un BEFORE either interpreter spoke. Clearly Trump learned to speak Korean specifically to deal with North Korea.
But I return to my original question. How did Franklin, a man who has nothing but disdain and downright hatred for “flyover country,” suddenly find and connect with “Mayor Pete?”
Sure, they both went to Harvard (where, as you would expect, certain secret societies operate).
And yes, the Rhodes scholar connection should be setting off alarms in anyone’s head – namely because the Rhodes house (which I’ve personally visited) is a complete Cabal factory. (Recall, Bill Clinton himself was a Rhodes scholar). And seriously, the house’s fascade is covered in odd occult engravings, which include depictions of pyramids, the sphinx, and Zimbabwe Birds (which… I think might be a particularly Rhodesian twist on owl-imagery, but that’s just speculation on my part).
Here are some excerpts from my personal archives proving that, yeah, I know what I’m talking about here, because I’ve seen it firsthand and documented it personally:
Odd, right? And these are just some of the more prominent displays of cabal iconography all over the Rhodes house. That’s something you have to remember when you’re peering into this world: these “accolades” which seem to just pile on top of certain individuals have less to do with them somehow being made of “better stuff” than the rest of us, and more with them being initiated and accepted into something much darker, and much more sinister by the power-brokers-that-be.
And this relationship between Leonard and Buttigieg is especially odd when you consider that there are so many seasoned veterans running for president on the Democratic side this year (Gee, I wonder why??)
But seriously, take your pick. You’ve got Harris, Gillibrand, Booker, Warren, Biden, and so many others.
You would think that most Dems – Franklin included – would be pushing for the person with the best chances of winning.
And what chance does a relative unknown from Indiana have, really?
So what exactly is going on here?
Needless to say, my “clown” sense was tingling, so I had to start digging… What, exactly, connected these Franklin and “Mayor Pete?”
And that’s when the first connection hit me:
You might not have heard of Franklin Leonard (NYO 01-03), but it’s almost guaranteed that you’ve seen a movie that made its way to the big screen because of him. In 2005, Franklin founded the Black List, an annual survey of Hollywood executives’ favorite unproduced screenplays.
Now, this is something I didn’t really dive into in my BlackListAnon articles, because I wasn’t sure how it all fit into the mix at the time, but Franklin Leonard spent a considerable amount of time at McKinsey and Company before venturing out on his own.
So too, “Mayor Pete.”
Pete worked for McKinsey & Company, a top consulting firm, where he was responsible for advising senior business and government leaders on major decisions related to economic development, energy policy, strategic business initiatives, and logistics. His work took him around the country and the world, including to Iraq and Afghanistan, and he serves as an officer in the U.S. Navy Reserve.
Mayor-elect Pete Buttigieg is an accomplished businessman who is working hard to bring new ideas and real results to the mayor’s office in South Bend. He recently captured 74 percent of the vote on Election Day to become the city’s next mayor.
Now, for those unfamiliar, McKinsey is a management consulting firm that is brought in by big companies/governments/organizations to improve efficiency. Think “The Bobs” from Office Space, except with more money and fewer moral scruples:
So think “restructuring,” think coming up with business plans, and efficiency-minded things.
Oh, and they’re also the idiots behind Enron, the 2008 Financial Crisis, and Valeant’s collapse, among numerous other scandals – but somehow they never get in trouble because “they only recommend courses of action” and don’t actually decide on the course of action themselves. In other words, they’re the shoulder devil whispering evil ideas into the ears of whatever Execs they’re working with, and get to cackle as their quarry is dragged down to hell by their own evil deeds which they chose of their own free will.
Oh, and they also work with a number of authoritarian regimes around the world, such as China, Saudia Arabia, and Turkey.
This year’s McKinsey & Company retreat in China was one to remember.
Hundreds of the company’s consultants frolicked in the desert, riding camels over sand dunes and mingling in tents linked by red carpets. Meetings took place in a cavernous banquet hall that resembled a sultan’s ornate court, with a sign overhead to capture the mood.
“I can’t keep calm, I work at McKinsey & Company,” it said.
Especially remarkable was the location: Kashgar, the ancient Silk Road city in China’s far west that is experiencing a major humanitarian crisis.
About four miles from where the McKinsey consultants discussed their work, which includes advising some of China’s most important state-owned companies, a sprawling internment camp had sprung up to hold thousands of ethnic Uighurs — part of a vast archipelago of indoctrination camps where the Chinese government has locked up as many as one million people.
One week before the McKinsey event, a United Nations committee had denounced the mass detentions and urged China to stop.
But the political backdrop did not appear to bother the McKinsey consultants, who posted pictures on Instagram chronicling their Disney-like adventures. In fact, McKinsey’s involvement with the Chinese government goes much deeper than its odd choice to showcase its presence in the country.
You want Russian collusion? I got your Russian Collusion right here:
Inside Russia itself, McKinsey has worked with Kremlin-linked companies that have been placed under sanctions by Western governments — companies that the firm helped build up over the years and, in some cases, continues to advise.
But I’ll let the article continue to paint the picture for you:
So it was a bit surprising when McKinsey helped polish the battered image of Mr. Yanukovych and pitch him as something else: a forward-thinking leader with an economic vision of a better future for all Ukrainians.
McKinsey’s role in resurrecting Mr. Yanukovych’s political career has been lost in the clamor surrounding the conviction of Mr. Manafort, Mr. Trump’s former campaign chairman, for secretly taking millions of dollars to help the Ukranian leader win the presidency in 2010.
But McKinsey was financed by the same oligarch who backed Mr. Manafort, and it wrote an economic plan that Mr. Yanukovych wielded to disarm his critics — before discarding much of it after becoming president.
Mr. Manafort’s job was twofold: to soften Mr. Yanukovych’s reputation and strengthen his Russian-leaning Party of Regions, facilitating his rise to the presidency. McKinsey provided something different — an economic plan that Mr. Yanukovych could use to portray himself as a market-based reformer, tilting to the West.
Mr. Akhmetov paid Mr. Manafort by wire transfers funneled through a Cypriot shell company, court records show. Other Party of Regions operatives paid Mr. Manafort through shell companies, eventually resulting in his conviction in the United States for failing to declare the money on his tax returns.
McKinsey, by contrast, was paid through a Ukrainian foundation financed by Mr. Akhmetov and run by a former McKinsey consultant now living in Moscow. Set up to promote economic reform, the foundation also sought to publicize McKinsey — and by extension, Mr. Yanukovych.
This year’s McKinsey & Company retreat in China was one to remember. Hundreds of the company’s consultants frolicked in the desert, riding camels over sand dunes and mingling in tents linked by red carpets. Meetings took place in a cavernous banquet hall that resembled a sultan’s ornate court, with a sign overhead to capture the mood.
In case it isn’t already blindingly obvious, this is no average business consulting company. And if its past exploits weren’t proof enough, take a look at some of its previous “alumni.”

And that’s only some of the names you’ll find on the complete list:
The following is a list of notable former employees of McKinsey & Company , a management consulting firm founded in 1926. This group is often referred to as a group in its own right.
And yes, there are some very familiar faces here, from Chelsea Clinton, to Sundar Pichai, to Sheryl Sandberg, and more.
Why, it’s almost like McKinsey is functioning as a kind of… “Clown College” of sorts!
And hey! Here’s a bonus #BlackListAnon connection. You already know what I’ve previously theorized about the Black List being used to promote Lefties, Cabal insiders, rampant degeneracy degeneracy, and to lock anyone to the right of Marx out of Hollywood. We previously covered how Franklin Leonard promoted both Obama Assistant Susan Sher’s son, Graham Moore and NBC News’ own Noah #RapeEnabler Oppenheim.
Now we have another data point to add to the list. Look at Franklin Leonard promoting a fellow McKinsey alum, Josh Singer. His script Spotlight, which “covered” some of the Roman Catholic sex abuse scandal, was featured on the 2013 Black List, and he was recently interviewed over at the Black List’s main site before his script, First Man won best screenplay at the 2018 Oscars (Leonard is a voting member of the Academy, remember).
I wanted to begin by asking about exploring real-world truths in film - what’s the most challenging part of turning factual research into fictional narratives? I’m a research nerd, so one thing I really love is that I get to delve into whole worlds and learn a ton.
You may also recall this film stirred up controversy because there was no scene where the American flag was planted on the moon. Even Trump called it out, and the media… well, the Media responded about how you would expect those venomous snakes to respond:
Well, it was only a matter of time before Donald Trump weighed in on possibly the dumbest film controversy of the year. Last week, right-wing pundits and politicians united in fury over the supposed revelation that the Neil Armstrong drama First Man, Damien Chazelle’s first film since La La Land, omitted the American flag from the story of the moon landing in 1969.
But, yes, I’m sure it’s just a totally wild and complete “coincidence” that Leonard helped fellow McKinsey Alum reach new career heights. Totally happenstance.
And I’m sure he had absolutely no bias when Leonard voted for best screenplay at the Academy.
And it’s just another totally wild “coincidence” that Leonard is now helping boost ANOTHER fellow McKinsey Alum reach for new career heights, albeit in Washington this time, in the form of Pete Buttigieg!
But that’s not the only Cabal connection between these two.
Enter: The Aspen Institute… where Buttigieg was a Rodel Fellow in 2014:
Rob Bonta California State Assemblyman Peter Buttigieg Mayor, South Bend, Indiana Jim Cawley Lieutenant Governor, Pennsylvania John Cranley Mayor, Cincinnati, Ohio Julie Fedorchak Public Service Commissioner, North Dakota Aaron Ford Nevada State Senator Michael Hancock Mayor, Denver, Colorado Jeff Hickman Speaker, Oklahoma House of Representatives Betsy Hodges …
Yes, the very same Aspen Insitute which is not only funded through George Soros’ Open Society Foundation, but which has also featured Franklin Leonard a number of times, across its venues and publications. You’ll recall, from my original BlackListAnon article, this link:
In August 2004, according to this article in the liberal New Yorker, “a clandestine summit meeting took place at the Aspen Institute, in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. The participants, all Democrats, were sworn to secrecy” and included five billionaires who “shared a common goal: to use their fortunes to engineer the defeat of President George W. Bush in the 2004 election.” The wealthiest of these “hard-core partisans” was George Soros, who had been a “leading crusader for campaign-finance reform.”
Soros, through his Open Society Institute, provides support for the Aspen Institute, which runs various activities in support of its stated mission of “foster[ing] enlightened leadership and open-minded dialogue.” Among these activities are its “Justice and Society Seminars,” which often have federal judges as participants. The Aspen Institute has waived the steep seminar fee (currently up to $6,950) for participating federal judges, and also has covered their expenses for travel, lodging, and meals.
In addition to supporting the Aspen Institute, billionaire George Soros has been a major funder of the Community Rights Counsel, a left-wing “public interest law firm.” The Community Rights Counsel has been the most vocal opponent of educational seminars for judges operated by anyone other than federal bureaucrats or bar associations.
The Aspen Institute is also funded by the Democracy Fund, which was started by eBay’s founder (and the son of Iranians) Pierre Omidyar.
The Democracy Fund also funds #LunaticLeftist media outlet, The Intercept, which just over a week ago, “COINCIDENTALLY” dedicated an entire episode its podcast to… who else? PETE BUTTIGIEG!
When Mayor Pete Buttigieg launched his presidential exploratory committee in January, the general reaction was: Who? The mayorship of South Bend, Indiana, with a population of 100,000, is not a traditional launchpad to the nation’s highest office, and most saw little reason to credit his longshot bid.
And this is significant, because… in this interview, Buttigieg reveals his primary hand: harping on about “White Nationalism,” where Pete says:
It’s no secret that this president came to power largely by turning people against one another and by taking advantage of the use of white nationalism. He doesn’t want to acknowledge that it’s a problem, probably because he’s sympathetic to it.
Ironic, no? That in the wake of the most divisive president in our history, Barack Obama, the Left now levels this claim at Trump again and again and again?
And by leveraging, of all things, an event that didn’t even happen in our country!
Hmmm…. I don’t remember anyone saying Obama was leading to the “rise of an American Caliphate” when a fellow Muslim came in and slaughtered 49 people at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando. And that event actually took place in our country, as opposed to the Mosque shooting, which again (because I think I need to remind people), took place in New Zealand!
No, by now, all my readers should be well aware that the massacre in New Zealand was more about laying the groundwork for various Cabal members to flee to their boltholes there, and make sure the locals were disarmed so that they could ensure a greater degree of safety once their crimes were uncovered for the whole world to see.
Because, let’s face it: if it comes out that you’re raping, murdering, and partaking in cannibalistic sacrifices to Molech… I don’t think real New Zealanders will want you in their country either.
Anyway, read this hot-take from #Anon if you haven’t already, because he explains the issue well:
And I think this is important to take note of, because Buttigieg is actually making a mistake here by laying his primary campaign card out on the table so early; playing upon the specter of “White Nationalism.”
/g/GreatAwakening member StatecraftDiscerned had a great essay on this earlier today, because he suspects this is going to be the primary talking point for any Democrat running in 2020:
Now, examine the timeline here because timing ALWAYS matters:
1. New Zealand shootings happened and we drew attention to the peculiarity immediately: https://gab.com/Statecraft_Discerned/posts/NWp3STJrOU5zOHlLSC9BUW5wVWR6QT09
2. As noted in the previously linked post (point 1), the MSM immediately attributed the ‘white nationalism’ component to President Trump (a president of another country from a timezone with a 17-hour difference, I mind you.) Go back and look – it was everywhere and it was immediate.
3. Almost immediately, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-NY, worked to place ‘white nationalism’ into the congressional record by scheduling a hearing: https://thehill.com/homenews/house/434555-house-judiciary-committee-plans-hearing-on-white-nationalism
4. DHS quickly entered the game via Democratic the committee chairman by issued directives for media platforms to censor ‘white nationalist’ content: https://gab.com/Statecraft_Discerned/posts/ejloOWF1YndqOW1iR3R2eWxGaWNTdz09
*This is significant and bears repeating – it’s a maneuver from the Democratically controlled House DHS Committee Chairman targeting something – ‘white nationalism’ – that the federal government and in particular the FBI regards as a domestic terrorism. Revisit point number 2 above as you let that sink-in. What’s actually happening is that the Left is painting the president with with a ‘white nationalist’ ergo ‘domestic terrorist’ brush. If you haven’t identified it yet, here’s the play – on the eve of the 2020 election, it’s all lining-up for the media and tech giants to censor the president (censor his campaign?) in the name of combating ‘white nationalism’ and ‘domestic terrorism.’ Just ask Twitter, they’re already indicating that they are considering flagging the President Trump’s speech to his subscribers. Again, a multinational corporation is seeking to censor the words of the President of the United States because they don’t align with the political views of said corporation.
5. House Chairman for the Committee on Foreign Relations, Eliot Engel, then issued a public call for the federal government to counter ‘white nationalist’ international terrorism: https://www.statecraftdiscerned.com/2019/03/prediction-becomes-reality-engel-makes.html
Again, timing ALWAYS matters so let’s ask these questions? Where were the echoing objections to ‘white nationalism,’ as dominating domestic headlines, prior to the NZ shootings? How did all of this concern seem to manifest over night? What is the relationship between political elites in this country and NZ; especially elites on the Left? Why have so many of those elites; including John Podesta who visited NZ immediately preceding the shootings, recently traveled to NZ? What was the exact nature of the intelligence apparatuses for each country under the guise of the Five Eyes intelligence accord? Why is all of this ‘white nationalism’ concern immediately following the NZ shooting? Why do the Democrats have their hands all over the entirety of it all?
In short, it’s because ‘white nationalism’ has been determined by the Left to be a significant part of their 2020 campaign strategy. They are intelligently using federal mechanisms to saturate the federal buracruacy with this subject so that when they roll it out in full-force for the actual campagin season, their otherwise fraudulent message will have perceived legitimacy due it’s preexistence in the federal record and their ongoing attempts to redress it.
It’s also perfect fit for the Left’s Alinsky-based identity politics given its ability to pit and divide the American populace. In summary, it’s a perfect campaign strategy for them and that’s precisely what it is – a campaign strategy; not an actual problem.
It’s amazing what you can get away with when you keep a malleable people ignorant and distracted. Not us though – we all see this coming from a mile away.
EXAMINING ‘WHITE NATIONALISM’ AS A CAMPAIGN STRATEGY FOR 2020 – Because that’s precisely what it is *Updated to include the first paragraph and a link to Part II/the supporting evidence.
So in that regard, Pete is already failing by showing his hand already. After all, his policies are just gussied up Marxism and generic, nice-sounding appeals to “equality” (which, I’ll remind my readers, does not exist anywhere in nature).
(And I’ll interject here that Statecraft / discerned has since written up a follow-up piece to this article, so be sure to check that out.
No, if you spend any amount of time looking into his policies, they’re all Marxist and Globalist at their core. He won some high school essay contest years ago by praising Bernie Sanders for sticking to his “principles,” which is what Commies call advocating for mass property theft and “redistribution.”
So what can we say about Buttigieg? Well, he’s certainly a pink-o, and he likes it in the stink-o.
But another surprising connection emerges between Leonard and Buttigieg, in that Buttigieg was/is on the board of the Truman National Security Project, an DC-based Leftie “Think Tank” started by Democratic Activist Rachel Kleinfeld, who would later go on to be Susan Rice’s assistant during the Obama Administration.
The institute was funded by the group Ploughshares, which was not only funded by Soros’ Open Society foundation, but which, you may recall, also sent speakers to yet another Leftist think tank-type organization, named “Reinvent” alongside…
You guess it!
(Isn’t it just amazing how he keeps showing up in the most unlikely places??)
So now we have three ties between Buttigieg and the #SorosRentBoy. And for bonus points, Buttigieg would even go on to name one of his dogs “Truman!” What a “coincidence,” right??
But what else can we glean from watching this fiend?
Let’s take a look at that tweet he quoted:
And here’s the full screenshot:
That’s a nice story, isn’t it? A nice bit of “myth-making” there; kind of like how Zuckerberg built Facebook in his dorm room, but more quaint and relatable, in a way. Why, it’s almost like the Dems are venerating their white savior already!
But in truth, Buttigieg can actually speak SEVEN languages:
Norwegian, French, Spanish, Italian, Maltese, Arabic, and Farsi.
More alarm bells ringing for you, too?
It’s one thing to be a polyglot. (And his dad was Maltese, so he probably grew up with that, and bits of Italian, given Malta’s proximity to Italy. And this probably helped him pick up bits and pieces of French and Spanish, because all those Romance languages are so similar).
But it’s another thing entirely to be an intelligence officer who uses Arabic and Farsi while on deployment.
Yeaaaaaah… let’s talk about that.
“Mayor Pete” likes to cash in on those Patriot Points™ with middle Americans by saying he served in Afghanistan 2014.
What he usually omits is the fact that he was working with the Office of Naval Intelligence at the time.
In other words, “Mayor Pete” is a trained spook.
No small wonder then, that he not only worked for John Kerry’s Presidential campaign as a research specialist.
Not only that, but he then went on to work for William Cohen’s Cohen Group.
Here’s where it really gets interesting.
William Cohen was a long time Congressman/Senator who, despite being a Republican, became the Secretary of Defense under President Clinton in 1997, before being succeeded by Donald Rumsfeld during the Bush Administration in January of 2001.
What does that tell you right away?
Well, it should tell you that Cohen is a real “Bohemian Grove” type; more monoparty and globalist than principled and patriotic.
And no, in case you’re wondering, the guy doesn’t like Trump one bit, mostly because Trump is systematically dismantling the “world order” men like him have worked so hard to put in place and preserve:
“The president has taking a wrecking ball to every pillar of stability and security we have erected over the past 60, 70 years,” Cohen said. “He’s systematically demolishing them, starting off with TPP, where he undermined 11 — 10 other nations and signing an economic agreement that would have, in fact, been in our overall interest, starting there and just systematically going after criticizing publicly our NATO allies. And they should have been criticized, but in the way you demean them.”
“You describe a series of decisions on America’s greatest national security threats — Russia, Syria, Afghanistan, North Korea. Is the president fit to be commander in chief in your view?” the CNN host asked.
“In my judgment, no,” Cohen said. “I expressed this view to begin with. I must say it publicly, I did not support him for the president. I felt that that by training and background and temperament, that he was not fit for the job, and everything I’ve seen to date — not everything, I give him credit when he’s been right and I give him credit for taking on China on multiple issues. But when it comes to the national security and the way he’s dealing with our allies and the way he is betraying our interests, then I say no.”
Fmr. Sec Def William Cohen: Trump Has “Taken A Wrecking Ball” To Every Pillar Of Stability Erected Over Past 70 Years
Former Clinton Secretary of Defense William Cohen said President Trump has taken a “wrecking ball” to the pillars of global security and, in his judgment, is not fit to be commander in chief on Thursday’s ‘Anderson Cooper 360’ on CNN.
Have you ever in your life heard a former Secretary of Defense talk like that about a current, sitting president?
But in case you needed more evidence that Cohen is a Globalist scumbag, you won’t be surprised to learn that he’s he’s one of the founding members of the Trilateral Commission:
The Trilateral Commission was founded by David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski in July 1973 and is composed of approximately 325 elites in business, banking, and politics. The Trilateral Commission is propagated as being an economic cooperation between America, Europe, and Japan, but in reality is another secretive society/organization – this one specializing in creating the trilateral economic interdependence necessary to bring in the New World Order system of world currency and world governance. They are setting up the framework and power structure necessary for these multinational banks and corporations to assume global control, dominating the world’s populations, governments, and economies.
“The Trilateral Commission is an international organization founded by David Rockefeller who also had a part in the founding of the Council on Foreign Relations, Inc., and who is the chairman of the board. The Trilateral Commission is the llluminati’s attempt to unite Western Europe’s common market, Japan, Canada and the United States into an economic and political confederacy. What they couldn’t do through the political side of the Illuminati (Council on Foreign Relations, Inc.) they are trying now through the economic approach.” -Alex Christopher, “Pandora’s Box – The Ultimate Unseen Hand Behind the New World Order” (147)
The Trilateral Commission was founded by the persistent maneuvering of David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski. Rockefeller, [then] chairman of the ultra powerful Chase Manhattan Bank, a director of many major multinational corporations and ‘endowment funds’ has long been a central figure in the mysterious Council on Foreign Relations. Brzezinski, a brilliant prognosticator of one-world idealism, has been a professor at Columbia University and the author of several books that have served as ‘policy guidelines’ for the CFR. Brzezinski served as the (Trilateral) commission’s executive director from its inception in 1973 until late 1976 when he was appointed by President Carter as assistant to the president for national security affairs.” -Anthony C. Sutton and Patrick M. Wood, “Trilateral Over Washington”
Some notable members of the Trilateral Commission include George Bush, Dick and Lynne Cheney, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, Walter Mondale, David Rockefeller, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Henry Kissinger, David Gergen, Richard Holbrooke, Madeleine Albright, Robert McNamara, Paul Volcker, Alan Greenspan and Paul Wolfowitz. US Senators Diane Feinstein, Robert Taft Jr., Charles Robb, William Cohen, and John Glenn, Congressmen, Ambassadors, Secretaries of Treasury, State and many other political figures are Trilateralists. There are also many banking institutions represented at Trilateral meetings including the European Central Bank, World Bank, IMF, the Federal Reserve, Chase-Morgan, Citibank, Bank of America, Bank One, Bank of Tokyo, Bank of Japan and more. Also plenty of multi-national corporate interests are represented including Fuji Xerox, Goldman Sachs, AIG, Exxon-Mobil, Shell, Chevron, Texaco, Sony, Samsung, Comcast, Time Warner, Carlyle Group, Levi-Strauss, Daikin, Sara Lee, GE, GM, Ford, Chrysler, Toyota, Mitsubishi, Johnson and Johnson, IBM, Boeing, and Citigroup.
“Many of the original members of the Trilateral Commission are now in positions of power where they are able to implement policy recommendations of the Commission; recommendations that they, themselves, prepared on behalf of the Commission. It is for this reason that the Commission has acquired a reputation for being the Shadow Government of the West …The Trilateral Commission’s tentacles have reached so far in the political and economic sphere that it has been described by some as a cabal of powerful men out to control the world by creating a supernational community dominated by the multinational corporations.” -Researcher Laurie K. Strand “Who’s in charge—Six Possible Contenders” People’s Almanac #3.

Beyond that, Cohen was also one of the principle scumbags advancing the concept and a plan to create the North American Union, modeled after the European common market, as far back in the 90’s:
A powerful think tank chaired by former Sen. Sam Nunn and guided by trustees including Richard Armitage, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Harold Brown, William Cohen and Henry Kissinger, is in the final stages of preparing a report to the White House and U.S. Congress on the benefits of integrating the U.S., Mexico and Canada into one political, economic and security bloc.
The final report, published in English, Spanish and French, is scheduled for submission to all three governments by Sept. 30, according to the Center for Strategic & International Studies.
CSIS boasts of playing a large role in the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1994 – a treaty that set in motion a political movement many believe resembles the early stages of the European Community on its way to becoming the European Union…
All of this is described in a CSIS report, “North American Future 2025 Project.”
“The free flow of people across national borders will undoubtedly continue throughout the world as well as in North America, as will the social, political and economic challenges that accompany this trend,” says the report. “In order to remain competitive in the global economy, it is imperative for the twenty-first century North American labor market to possess the flexibility necessary to meet industrial labor demands on a transitional basis and in a way that responds to market forces.”
WASHINGTON – A powerful think tank chaired by former Sen. Sam Nunn and guided by trustees including Richard Armitage, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Harold Brown, William Cohen and Henry Kissinger, is in the final stages of preparing a report to the White House and U.S. Congress on the benefits of integrating the U.S., Mexico and Canada into …
Lots of overlap with Brzezinski here. Keep in mind who Brzezinski was training during that time with secret Arms-dealing trips to Pakistan (read: Obama).
And as a side-note, isn’t it just such an amazing “coincidence” how Brezizinski’s daughter is now shilling for Buttigieg on TV now?
‘Morning Joe’ co-host Mika Brzezinski told husband Joe Scarborough a number of Republicans have “reached out” to her to say they are going to support Democratic Mayor Pete Buttigieg for president. Jon Meacham said a general election between Trump and Buttigieg would be like Archie Bunker facing off against Aaron Sorkin.
Knowing what you know about Seth Rich and and all the Democrat email leaks during 2016, now take a look at how Cohen tried to run interference for the likes of Fusion GPS:
On Friday, the transition team dismissed other reports about the intelligence community’s conclusions about Russian hacking, saying in a statement “These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.”
And over the weekend, Trump again brushed away those conclusions, calling it “ridiculous” that Russia was trying to help his candidacy.
“I think it’s a big mistake to belittle the intelligence community because it looks as if you’re trying to politicize it,” William Cohen, a former secretary of defense told Scott Pelley on the “CBS Evening News.”
“Most of the time they get it right,” Cohen said.
Intelligence sources confirmed to CBS News’ Jeff Pegues Monday that the CIA has “high confidence ” that the Russian government worked to influence the U.S. presidential election in favor of Donald Trump. Similar allegations surfaced during and after the campaign, Trump and his team have been highly dismissive of any interference by the Russians.
The man is lying through his wooden dentures!
And this is the man who Buttigieg chose to work for.
But I want to focus in even further on two men in particular, who work on the Cohen Group’s executive board because this… this right here is where it all goes DEEP.
So let’s take a look at Marc Grossman and James Loy:
Let’s start with Grossman.
Grossman was the Ambassador to Turkey from 95-97, after which he had to flee the country after getting caught up in a corruption scandal known as the Susurluk Scandal.
And I’m just gonna post a screencap of the very brief Wikipedia article on the subject here, because I guarantee you there’s a line you’re going to laugh at:
Derin Devlet! Evidently, the Turks have known about the “Deep State” since the late 90’s. In that way, I suppose they are ahead of the curve.
Now, to understand this bit, you have to become familiar with an ex-FBI whistleblower by the name of Sibel Edmonds.
Edmonds was hired by the FBI in the wake of the 9/11 attacks as a translator, as she was fluent in Turkish, Farsi, and Azerbaijani, and as she set to work translating documents pertaining to Al-Quaeda, she uncovered what was known as Operation Gladio and Operation Gladio Plan B – two CIA-styled programs which were not officially sanctioned and which did not officially exist.
Essentially, what eventually came out as a result of her whistleblowing was that there were high-level US Officials coordinating with NATO officials (and CIA, and MI6) to run a secret program to create #falseflag attacks around the world. She was subsequently fired from her position at the FBI, and was gagged when state secrets were invoked against her, preventing her from speaking about what she knew, though much has filtered out over time.
Operation Gladio’s goal was to use Communists as the scapegoats, and had been in use since at least the late 60, and involved in a number of assassinations through Europe.
Operation Gladio Plan B was to use militant Islamists as scapegoats, as the threat of Communism died down in the wake of the Cold War simply coming to an end. Islam’s reach was wider, and their tactics, more brutal.
Al Qaeda (then, just Mujahideen), where one of the radical Islamic groups receiving their orders/funding/support from US officials and Deep State members within NATO, via Operation Gladio.
Really understand what that means for a second.
It means that Bin-Laden and Ayman Al-Zawahiri were being given marching orders by the US Deep State, by the Cabal. They were being fed intel, information, and resources from Cabal agents, in order to disrupt and destroy innocent lives.
Listen to this ~20-minute interview with Edmonds to get a better sense of the scope of this operation (the video should cue up for you automatically, but if it doesn’t, just scroll about halfway through until you see her pop up and start talking).
So how was Grossman involved in all this?
Edmonds elaborates in an interview she gave to The American Conservative. I’m including the whole thing here, because it’s mind-blowing, and so, so, so important to understand:
PHILIP GIRALDI: We were very interested to learn of your four-hour deposition in the case involving allegations that Congresswoman Jean Schmidt accepted money from the Turkish government in return for political favors. You provided many names and details for the first time on the record and swore an oath confirming that the deposition was true.
Basically, you map out a corruption scheme involving U.S. government employees and members of Congress and agents of foreign governments. These agents were able to obtain information that was either used directly by those foreign governments or sold to third parties, with the proceeds often used as bribes to breed further corruption. Let’s start with the first government official you identified, Marc Grossman, then the third highest-ranking official at the State Department.
SIBEL EDMONDS: During my work with the FBI, one of the major operational files that I was transcribing and translating started in late 1996 and continued until 2002, when I left the Bureau. Because the FBI had had no Turkish translators, these files were archived, but were considered to be very important operations. As part of the background, I was briefed about why these operations had been initiated and who the targets were.
Grossman became a person of interest early on in the investigative file while he was the U.S. ambassador to Turkey [1994-97], when he became personally involved with operatives both from the Turkish government and from suspected criminal groups. He also had suspicious contact with a number of official and non-official Israelis. Grossman was removed from Turkey short of tour during a scandal referred to as “Susurluk” by the media. It involved a number of high-level criminals as well as senior army and intelligence officers with whom he had been in contact.
Another individual who was working for Grossman, Air Force Major Douglas Dickerson, was also removed from Turkey and sent to Germany. After he and his Turkish wife Can returned to the U.S., he went to work for Douglas Feith and she was hired as an FBI Turkish translator. My complaints about her connection to Turkish lobbying groups led to my eventual firing.
Grossman and Dickerson had to leave the country because a big investigation had started in Turkey. Special prosecutors were appointed, and the case was headlined in England, Germany, Italy, and in some of the Balkan countries because the criminal groups were found to be active in all those places. A leading figure in the scandal, Mehmet Eymür, led a major paramilitary group for the Turkish intelligence service. To keep him from testifying, Eymür was sent by the Turkish government to the United States, where he worked for eight months as head of intelligence at the Turkish Embassy in Washington. He later became a U.S. citizen and now lives in McLean, Virginia. The central figure in this scandal was Abdullah Catli. In 1989, while “most wanted” by Interpol, he came to the U.S., was granted residency, and settled in Chicago, where he continued to conduct his operations until 1996.
GIRALDI: So Grossman at this point comes back to the United States. He’s rewarded with the third-highest position at the State Department, and he allegedly uses this position to do favors for “Turkish interests”—both for the Turkish government and for possible criminal interests. Sometimes, the two converge. The FBI is aware of his activities and is listening to his phone calls. When someone who is Turkish calls Grossman, the FBI monitors that individual’s phone calls, and when the Turk calls a friend who is a Pakistani or an Egyptian or a Saudi, they monitor all those contacts, widening the net.
GIRALDI: And Grossman received money as a result. In one case, you said that a State Department colleague went to pick up a bag of money…
GIRALDI: What kind of information was Grossman giving to foreign countries? Did he give assistance to foreign individuals penetrating U.S. government labs and defense installations as has been reported? It’s also been reported that he was the conduit to a group of congressmen who become, in a sense, the targets to be recruited as “agents of influence.”
EDMONDS: Yes, that’s correct. Grossman assisted his Turkish and Israeli contacts directly, and he also facilitated access to members of Congress who might be inclined to help for reasons of their own or could be bribed into cooperation. The top person obtaining classified information was Congressman Tom Lantos. A Lantos associate, Alan Makovsky worked very closely with Dr. Sabri Sayari in Georgetown University, who is widely believed to be a Turkish spy. Lantos would give Makovsky highly classified policy-related documents obtained during defense briefings for passage to Israel because Makovsky was also working for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
GIRALDI: Makovsky is now working for the Washington Institute for Near Eastern Policy, a pro-Israeli think tank.
EDMONDS: Yes. Lantos was at the time probably the most outspoken supporter of Israel in Congress. AIPAC would take out the information from Lantos that was relevant to Israel, and they would give the rest of it to their Turkish associates. The Turks would go through the leftovers, take what they wanted, and then try to sell the rest. If there were something relevant to Pakistan, they would contact the ISI officer at the embassy and say, “We’ve got this and this, let’s sit down and talk.” And then they would sell it to the Pakistanis.
GIRALDI: ISI—Pakistani intelligence—has been linked to the Pakistani nuclear proliferation program as well as to al-Qaeda and the Taliban.
So the FBI was monitoring these connections going from a congressman to a congressman’s assistant to a foreign individual who is connected with intelligence to other intelligence people who are located at different embassies in Washington. And all of this information is in an FBI file somewhere?
EDMONDS: Two sets of FBI files, but the AIPAC-related files and the Turkish files ended up converging in one. The FBI agents believed that they were looking at the same operation. It didn’t start with AIPAC originally. It started with the Israeli Embassy. The original targets were intelligence officers under diplomatic cover in the Turkish Embassy and the Israeli Embassy. It was those contacts that led to the American Turkish Council and the Assembly of Turkish American Associations and then to AIPAC fronting for the Israelis. It moved forward from there.
GIRALDI: So the FBI was monitoring people from the Israeli Embassy and the Turkish Embassy and one, might presume, the Pakistani Embassy as well?
EDMONDS: They were the secondary target. They got leftovers from the Turks and Israelis. The FBI would intercept communications to try to identify who the diplomatic target’s intelligence chief was, but then, in addition to that, there are individuals there, maybe the military attaché, who had their own contacts who were operating independently of others in the embassy.
GIRALDI: So the network starts with a person like Grossman in the State Department providing information that enables Turkish and Israeli intelligence officers to have access to people in Congress, who then provide classified information that winds up in the foreign embassies?
EDMONDS: Absolutely. And we also had Pentagon officials doing the same thing. We were looking at Richard Perle and Douglas Feith. They had a list of individuals in the Pentagon broken down by access to certain types of information. Some of them would be policy related, some of them would be weapons-technology related, some of them would be nuclear-related. Perle and Feith would provide the names of those Americans, officials in the Pentagon, to Grossman, together with highly sensitive personal information: this person is a closet gay; this person has a chronic gambling issue; this person is an alcoholic. The files on the American targets would contain things like the size of their mortgages or whether they were going through divorces. One Air Force major I remember was going through a really nasty divorce and a child custody fight. They detailed all different kinds of vulnerabilities.
GIRALDI: So they had access to their personnel files and also their security files and were illegally accessing this kind of information to give to foreign agents who exploited the vulnerabilities of these people to recruit them as sources of information?
EDMONDS: Yes. Some of those individuals on the list were also working for the RAND Corporation. RAND ended up becoming one of the prime targets for these foreign agents.
GIRALDI: RAND does highly classified research for the U.S. government. So they were setting up these people for recruitment as agents or as agents of influence?
EDMONDS: Yes, and the RAND sources would be paid peanuts compared to what the information was worth when it was sold if it was not immediately useful for Turkey or Israel. They also had sources who were working in some midwestern Air Force bases. The sources would provide the information on CD’s and DVD’s. In one case, for example, a Turkish military attaché got the disc and discovered that it was something really important, so he offered it to the Pakistani ISI person at the embassy, but the price was too high. Then a Turkish contact in Chicago said he knew two Saudi businessmen in Detroit who would be very interested in this information, and they would pay the price. So the Turkish military attaché flew to Detroit with his assistant to make the sale.
GIRALDI: We know Grossman was receiving money for services.
EDMONDS: Yes. Sometimes he would give money to the people who were working with him, identified in phone calls on a first-name basis, whether it’s a John or a Joe. He also took care of some other people, including his contact at the New York Times. Grossman would brag, “We just fax to our people at the New York Times. They print it under their names.”
GIRALDI: Did Feith and Perle receive any money that you know of?
GIRALDI: So they were doing favors for other reasons. Both Feith and Perle were lobbyists for Turkey and also were involved with Israel on defense contracts, including some for Northrop Grumman, which Feith represented in Israel.
EDMONDS: They had arrangements with various companies, some of them members of the American Turkish Council. They had arrangements with Kissinger’s group, with Northrop Grumman, with former secretary of state James Baker’s group, and also with former national security adviser Brent Scowcroft.
The monitoring of the Turks picked up contacts with Feith, Wolfowitz, and Perle in the summer of 2001, four months before 9/11. They were discussing with the Turkish ambassador in Washington an arrangement whereby the U.S. would invade Iraq and divide the country. The UK would take the south, the rest would go to the U.S. They were negotiating what Turkey required in exchange for allowing an attack from Turkish soil. The Turks were very supportive, but wanted a three-part division of Iraq to include their own occupation of the Kurdish region. The three Defense Department officials said that would be more than they could agree to, but they continued daily communications to the ambassador and his defense attaché in an attempt to convince them to help.
Meanwhile Scowcroft, who was also the chairman of the American Turkish Council, Baker, Richard Armitage, and Grossman began negotiating separately for a possible Turkish protectorate. Nothing was decided, and then 9/11 took place.
Scowcroft was all for invading Iraq in 2001 and even wrote a paper for the Pentagon explaining why the Turkish northern front would be essential. I know Scowcroft came off as a hero to some for saying he was against the war, but he was very much for it until his client’s conditions were not met by the Bush administration.
GIRALDI: Armitage was deputy secretary of state at the time Scowcroft and Baker were running their own consulting firms that were doing business with Turkey. Grossman had just become undersecretary, third in the State hierarchy behind Armitage.
You’ve previouly alluded to efforts by Grossman, as well as high-ranking officials at the Pentagon, to place Ph.D. students. Can you describe that in more detail?
EDMONDS: The seeding operation started before Marc Grossman arrived at the State Department. The Turkish agents had a network of Turkish professors in various universities with access to government information. Their top source was a Turkish-born professor of nuclear physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was useful because MIT would place a bunch of Ph.D. or graduate-level students in various nuclear facilities like Sandia or Los Alamos, and some of them were able to work for the Air Force. He would provide the list of Ph.D. students who should get these positions. In some cases, the Turkish military attaché would ask that certain students be placed in important positions. And they were not necessarily all Turkish, but the ones they selected had struck deals with the Turkish agents to provide information in return for money. If for some reason they had difficulty getting a secuity clearance, Grossman would ensure that the State Department would arrange to clear them.
In exchange for the information that these students would provide, they would be paid $4,000 or $5,000. And the information that was sold to the two Saudis in Detroit went for something like $350,000 or $400,000.
GIRALDI: This corruption wasn’t confined to the State Department and the Pentagon—it infected Congress as well. You’ve named people like former House Speaker Dennis Hastert, now a registered agent of the Turkish government. In your deposition, you describe the process of breaking foreign-originated contributions into small units, $200 or less, so that the source didn’t have to be reported. Was this the primary means of influencing congressmen, or did foreign agents exploit vulnerabilities to get what they wanted using something like blackmail?
EDMONDS: In early 1997, because of the information that the FBI was getting on the Turkish diplomatic community, the Justice Department had already started to investigate several Republican congressmen. The number-one congressman involved with the Turkish community, both in terms of providing information and doing favors, was Bob Livingston. Number-two after him was Dan Burton, and then he became number-one until Hastert became the speaker of the House. Bill Clinton’s attorney general, Janet Reno, was briefed on the investigations, and since they were Republicans, she authorized that they be continued.
Well, as the FBI developed more information, Tom Lantos was added to this list, and then they got a lot on Douglas Feith and Richard Perle and Marc Grossman. At this point, the Justice Department said they wanted the FBI to only focus on Congress, leaving the executive branch people out of it. But the FBI agents involved wanted to continue pursuing Perle and Feith because the Israeli Embassy was also connected. Then the Monica Lewinsky scandal erupted, and everything was placed on the back burner.
But some of the agents continued to investigate the congressional connection. In 1999, they wiretapped the congressmen directly. (Prior to that point they were getting all their information secondhand through FISA, as their primary targets were foreigners.) The questionably legal wiretap gave the perfect excuse to the Justice Department. As soon as they found out, they refused permission to monitor the congressmen and Grossman as primary targets. But the inquiry was kept alive in Chicago because the FBI office there was pursuing its own investigation. The epicenter of a lot of the foreign espionage activity was Chicago.
GIRALDI: So the investigation stopped in Washington, but continued in Chicago?
EDMONDS: Yes, and in 2000, another representative was added to the list, Jan Schakowsky, the Democratic congresswoman from Illinois. Turkish agents started gathering information on her, and they found out that she was bisexual. So a Turkish agent struck up a relationship with her. When Jan Schakowsky’s mother died, the Turkish woman went to the funeral, hoping to exploit her vulnerability. They later were intimate in Schakowsky’s townhouse, which had been set up with recording devices and hidden cameras. They needed Schakowsky and her husband Robert Creamer to perform certain illegal operational facilitations for them in Illinois. They already had Hastert, the mayor, and several other Illinois state senators involved. I don’t know if Congresswoman Schakowsky ever was actually blackmailed or did anything for the Turkish woman.
GIRALDI: So we have a pattern of corruption starting with government officials providing information to foreigners and helping them make contact with other Americans who had valuable information. Some of these officials, like Marc Grossman, were receiving money directly. Others were receiving business favors: Pentagon associates like Doug Feith and Richard Perle had interests in Israel and Turkey. The stolen information was being sold, and the money that was being generated was used to corrupt certain congressmen to influence policy and provide still more information—in many cases information related to nuclear technology.
EDMONDS: As well as weapons technology, conventional weapons technology, and Pentagon policy-related information.
GIRALDI: You also have information on al-Qaeda, specifically al-Qaeda in Central Asia and Bosnia. You were privy to conversations that suggested the CIA was supporting al-Qaeda in central Asia and the Balkans, training people to get money, get weapons, and this contact continued until 9/11…
EDMONDS: I don’t know if it was CIA. There were certain forces in the U.S. government who worked with the Turkish paramilitary groups, including Abdullah Çatli’s group, Fethullah Gülen.
GIRALDI: Well, that could be either Joint Special Operations Command or CIA.
EDMONDS: Maybe in a lot of cases when they said State Department, they meant CIA?
GIRALDI: When they said State Department, they probably meant CIA.
EDMONDS: Okay. So these conversations, between 1997 and 2001, had to do with a Central Asia operation that involved bin Laden. Not once did anybody use the word “al-Qaeda.” It was always “mujahideen,” always “bin Laden” and, in fact, not “bin Laden” but “bin Ladens” plural. There were several bin Ladens who were going on private jets to Azerbaijan and Tajikistan. The Turkish ambassador in Azerbaijan worked with them.
There were bin Ladens, with the help of Pakistanis or Saudis, under our management. Marc Grossman was leading it, 100 percent, bringing people from East Turkestan into Kyrgyzstan, from Kyrgyzstan to Azerbaijan, from Azerbaijan some of them were being channeled to Chechnya, some of them were being channeled to Bosnia. From Turkey, they were putting all these bin Ladens on NATO planes. People and weapons went one way, drugs came back.
GIRALDI: Was the U.S. government aware of this circular deal?
EDMONDS: 100 percent. A lot of the drugs were going to Belgium with NATO planes. After that, they went to the UK, and a lot came to the U.S. via military planes to distribution centers in Chicago and Paterson, New Jersey. Turkish diplomats who would never be searched were coming with suitcases of heroin.
GIRALDI: And, of course, none of this has been investigated. What do you think the chances are that the Obama administration will try to end this criminal activity?
EDMONDS: Well, even during Obama’s presidential campaign, I did not buy into his slogan of “change” being promoted by the media and, unfortunately, by the naïve blogosphere. First of all, Obama’s record as a senator, short as it was, spoke clearly. For all those changes that he was promising, he had done nothing. In fact, he had taken the opposite position, whether it was regarding the NSA’s wiretapping or the issue of national-security whistleblowers. We whistleblowers had written to his Senate office. He never responded, even though he was on the relevant committees.
As soon as Obama became president, he showed us that the State Secrets Privilege was going to continue to be a tool of choice. It’s an arcane executive privilege to cover up wrongdoing—in many cases, criminal activities. And the Obama administration has not only defended using the State Secrets Privilege, it has been trying to take it even further than the previous terrible administration by maintaining that the U.S. government has sovereign immunity. This is Obama’s change: his administration seems to think it doesn’t even have to invoke state secrets as our leaders are emperors who possess this sovereign immunity. This is not the kind of language that anybody in a democracy would use.
The other thing I noticed is how Chicago, with its culture of political corruption, is central to the new administration. When I saw that Obama’s choice of chief of staff was Rahm Emanuel, knowing his relationship with Mayor Richard Daley and with the Hastert crowd, I knew we were not going to see positive changes. Changes possibly, but changes for the worse. It was no coincidence that the Turkish criminal entity’s operation centered on Chicago.
Is that not just astounding information?
Grossman is working in Turkey, gets caught in a scandal, gets shuffled around to a different department once back at home, but continues to leak to the Turks and Israeli intelligence, all while working directly with the Bin Ladens, right up until 9/11.
And this guy sits on the board of William Cohen’s Cohen Group, which by now should be sounding less and less like a private consulting firm, and more like a private intelligence agency.
FBI whistle-blower Sibel Edmonds “whispered cryptically” to AntiWar.com reporter Christopher Deliso concerning Grossman’s little-known role in the Valerie Plame affair. Grossman, she said, “has not been as high profile in the press” but “don’t overlook him – he is very important.”
His importance is multilateral.
Mark Grossman is considered a key figure in the Plame investigation, but prosecutor Fitzgerald has his own hidden conflicts of interest and was NEVER likely to make substantive progress in the case against any ranking official (I’ve said so for years and explained why and received only blank expressions in return … while Leopold and Madsen fought me, not deliberately, with FALSE REPORTS of “pending indictments in the Plame case” – THEY never materialized, and I had it right all along.)
A Wikipedia entry explains his appointment, and when considered in context, why the investigation has no legs: ” … Fitzgerald was named by Deputy Attorney General James B. Comey after then-Attorney General John Ashcroft recused himself from the case due to conflicts of interest. …”
Comey “appointed the U.S. Attorney in Chicago, close friend and former colleague Patrick Fitzgerald, as Special Counsel to head the CIA leak grand jury investigation. … In August 2005, Comey left the DOJ and he is now General Counsel and Senior Vice President of LOCKHEED MARTIN.”
The deputy AG has been richly rewarded in fraternal blood diamonds …
Now, the connections do get interesting … Mark Grossman sits on the Cohen Group board of directors – and Cohen interlocks neatly with Lockheed’s board. As mentioned, James M. Loy, senior counselor at the Cohen Group, directs Lockheed, and so does Joseph W. Ralston, vice chairman the Cohen Group – a Lockheed Martin sub-contractor.
Lockheed influence on the prosecution … Lockheed influence on the defense … here, there, all over the Libby case …
It wasn’t Ashcroft who should have recused himself, but FITZGERALD, the moment James Comey went to work for Lockheed Martin, because Grossman represents the defense firm and lobbies contractually on its behalf. And Lockheed’s sudden interest in Comey is a quid-pro-quo – the many interlocking scandals behind Scooter Libby – including Grossman and his meeting with the director of Pakistani ISI – were ignored under Fitzgerald’s predecessor in the case, and Fitzgerald himself – and this tainted Libby’s prosecution. The name Cheney was kept out of it, for instance. This much is apparent to anyone. But so were the names Grossman, Mahmoud Ahmed, Daniel Pearl, the Lockheed board of directors, Dick Armitage and his nuclear black marketeering enterprise, etc., etc. ….
Grossman entered the Plame picture when a memo written on June 10, 2003 turned up in the files, written by a staffer in the State Department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research (INR) on behalf of the undersecretary of State.
In the memo, Marc Grossman requested a briefing on INR’s opposition to the administration’s contention that Saddam Hussein had sent out feelers toward securing uranium from Niger. The Washington Post reported that he – in the role of acting secretary of state, “since Secretary of State Colin L. Powell and Deputy Secretary Richard L. Armitage were out of the country.” – wanted the letter marked “secret” preceding “a meeting at the White House where the discussion was focused on then growing criticism of Bush’s inclusion in his January State of the Union speech of the allegation that Hussein had been seeking uranium. … Grossman has refused to answer questions about the letter.”
Michel Chossudovsky: Lt. General Ahmed as head of the ISI was a ‘US approved appointee.’ As head of the ISI since 1999, he was in liaison with his US counterparts in the CIA, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and the Pentagon. Also bear in mind that Pakistan’s ISI remained throughout the entire post Cold War era until the present, the launch-pad for CIA covert operations in the Caucasus, Central Asia and the Balkans. … The Bush Administration had sought the ‘cooperation’ of those who were directly supporting and abetting” the 9/11 plotline. Absurd, yes, “but at the same time consistent with Washington’s broader STRATEGIC and ECONOMIC objectives in Central Asia.”
Step back in time, put yourself in the wing-tipped shoes of a Lockheed director: Is this all that is preoccupying Grossman as he gazes across his polished desk at Atta’s generous benefactor – or a facile money trail for the press and FBI to follow – a few days before the terror strikes?
What were the objectives? Were they the dictates of the State Department … OR THE COHEN/LOCKHEED GROUP? They’ve been directing the Scooter Libby song-and-dance cover story all along.
This was the backdrop of the Plame case – and a commutaion was waiting at the end of trial. When it was granted, the opportunity to expose the MANY scandals intersecting in Grossman’s office – with Cohen and Lockheed and all cabbaged safely away in the filing cabinets – was buried, a smoking (subautomatic carbine with a complex of barrels) gun.
The prosecution’s skin-deep investigation and Bush’s commutation covered up a litany of federal offenses and war crimes.
“Access, Insight and Intelligence” is the motto of the Cohen Group.
“Access,” “insight”: “In December 2000, shortly before Cohen left office, the Pentagon awarded Iridium Satellite LLC a $72 million contract, without competitive bidding, that helped save the company’s communications satellites from destruction. David R. Oliver Jr. [current director of business development and technology for Naval Systems, Northrop Grumann Electronic Sensors and Systems Division], who was a senior procurement official at the time, said that he and Cohen were the Pentagon’s principal advocates for the Iridium deal. Over the past two years, Iridium has paid the Cohen Group about $400,000 to lobby the House, Senate and Department of Defense, according to lobbying disclosure statements.”
“Intelligence” for profit – conflict-of-Interests run rampant: “At the hub of the Cohen network, the former secretary makes frequent appearances on CNN, where he is a commentator on world affairs. He has served as a director of several corporations, some of which made arrangements to pay the Cohen Group for bringing in business, according to documents filed with the SEC.
Is this a business meeting or war strategizing?: “Nowadays, most of Cohen’s mornings begin with an 8:30 staff meeting in the “Pentagon.” That’s the Cohen Group’s name for the conference room where the daily meeting is held. On any given day, the gathering may include Joseph W. Ralston, a retired Air Force general and former vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; James M. Loy, who finished a long public career as deputy secretary of homeland security; and Marc Grossman, a former undersecretary of state. Another prominent member of the firm, former NATO secretary general and British minister of defense George Robertson, is based overseas.
“They form an elaborate network.”
MERCENARIES: COHEN GROUP, LOCKHEED, MARC GROSSMAN, 9/11, BACKSTAGE AT THE LIBBY PROSECUTION, DANIEL PEARL’S MURDER, DANNY SEBRIGHT … & HOWARD DEAN
By Alex Constantine(Updated) “Soon we’ll find out who is the real revolutionary, I don’t want my people to be tricked by mercenaries.” – Bob Marley HOWARD DEAN AND DANNY SEBRIGHT Howard Dean: A Hawk in a Dove’s Cloak By SEAN DONAHUE Sebright “Howard Dean wants the peace movement to believe that he is its best hope for bringing change in Washington.
I apologize for the extreme length here. I always try to be succinct and direct, but sometimes, there’s no other way around it, and you just have to dive in and focus – and I include all this for a reason. The names, networks, and players should be much clearer now:
Cohen, Grossman, Ralston, Loy, Comey, Plame, Lockheed, Iridium, and more.
THESE are some of the players #QAnon and Team Trump are trying to take out, and if you’ve been following Q for any length of time, some of these players should be very familiar indeed.
(UPDATE: And this all sounds awfully close to the kind of thing FIG – the Flynn Intelligence Group – might have been tasked with tracking, and subsequently reporting to Meuller. See Thomas Wictor’s numerous posts on FIG for more on this tangent, which is beyond the scope of this article).
But any wonder then, that the ex-CIA spook outed by Scooter Libby and attached to Grossman is now considering a run for Senate?
Former CIA officer Valerie Plame says she is considering a potential run for Senate in New Mexico as a Democrat to replace retiring Sen. Tom Udall Thomas (Tom) Stewart Udall New Mexico Dems brace for crowded race to succeed Udall Republican says he’s considering running for Udall’s seat in 2020 The Hill’s Morning Report – Presented by Pass USMCA Coalition – Dems look for traction following Barr-Mueller findings MORE (D).
Recall from Qdrop 2044:
THEY WANT THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM.
UPDATE: I recall now, that it’s no wonder POTUS issued a pardon for Scooter Libby. He was sending a warning shot straight across the bow of the Cabal with that one:
President Donald Trump on Friday pardoned Lewis “Scooter” Libby, the chief of staff to former Vice President Dick Cheney who was caught up in the investigation into the leak of the identity of CIA officer Valerie Plame. “I don’t know Mr. Libby,” Trump said in a statement, adding, “but for years I have heard that he has been treated unfairly.
But what I propose to you today is that, given his background in Naval Intelligence, and his close work with Cohen, Kerry, and others, contrary to the glimmering tabula rasa he purports to be, Buttigieg is actually a Cabal spook of the worst sort, and is, in fact, the Cabal’s “insurance policy” candidate for 2020 and beyond.
Follow me on this.
If you were in “Cabal Command” and you were trying to plan against QAnon and Team Trump, what would you do?
You’d prepare for all eventualities – including every single major Democratic candidate getting arrested and charged with Treason before being tried, convicted, and executed or imprisoned for life.
So, if you were evil “Cabal Command,” trying to ensure your people stayed in power, what would you do?
Why, you’d do everything you could to make sure one of your guys won in the future.
Maybe not this go-round,.
Maybe not even in 2024…
But at some point in the future, you’d want to be ready to pounce once the “pendulum” swung back your way.
And if all these crimes, all this evil was about to be exposed on the world stage… what would you do?
You’d run a guy so “squeaky-clean” (yet who still possesses all the “right” ideas and loyalties), so well-spoken, so “well-educated,” with enough “Patriot-points” to cash in… So that even if you did encounter a complete and utter “nuclear disaster scenario” where everyone you’ve built up, invested in, and worked with over the years was decimated, you’d still have one card left to play; someone on hand who could sneak in, convince enough folks “from the middle” to vote for him, and then, like Obama, once in power, install all manner of Cabal lackeys and begin progressively subverting every institution, much like how Obama installed all manner of Muslim Brotherhood operatives in every level of government, as revealed by Wikileaks.
This is why I call Pete Buttigieg #ObamaInWhiteface. Much like the “hope and change” nonsense peddled by then-Senator Obama, he’s a Manchurian candidate peddling meaningless platitudes to cover up the fact that all he’s really advocating are the failed authoritarian policies so common to those who suffer from Utopian Marxist delusions. He’s someone who has been groomed by the Deep State from a very young age, and despite all efforts to conjure up an appearance to the contrary, he would be absolutely devastating to our way of life.
But now, we’ve got years of experience and knowledge on our side. We’ve survived the onslaught of The Cabal, and we’re fighting back with intel and networks of our own to make sure these lying cowards never slither their way back into the halls of power, where they would destroy everything we cherish and hold dear.
So today, I want to say to “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg – I SEE YOU FOR WHAT YOU ARE, YOU WRETCHED CLOWN.
And now, millions of Anons see you, too.
You might as well pack it in and go home, before Anons teach you the true meaning of Butthurt.
