May 8, 2017

On the premiere episode of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, host, Ryan Sprague, introduces the listeners to the show and then speaks with historian and author, Richard Dolan, about the media and UFOs. They also discuss the possibility and forms of disclosure that may occur in a new American political era, and then they wrap things up by confronting the future of UFO studies. Richard Dolan is the author of two volumes of history, ‘UFOs and the National Security State’, both ground-breaking works which together provide the most factually complete and accessible narrative of the UFO subject available anywhere. He also co-authored a speculative book about the future, ‘A.D. After Disclosure’, the first-ever analysis not only of how UFO secrecy might end, but of the all-important question: what happens next Richard’s latest work, ‘UFOs for the 21st Century Mind’, provides a fresh treatment of the entire subject. In it, he discusses the important sightings, the encounters, the politics, the cover-up, ancient aliens, the bizarre science, disclosure, and offers advice on being both critical and open-minded in today’s world. Like his previous three books, it asks fresh questions and offers new insights to further our understanding of the UFO mystery. Richard hosts a weekly radio show, The Richard Dolan Show on KGRA Radio, is a frequent guest on Coast-to-Coast AM. He is currently featured on several television series and documentaries, including Ancient Aliens, Hangar One: The UFO Files, Close Encounters, and UFOs: The Lost Evidence. Prior to his interest in UFOs, Richard completed his graduate work at the University of Rochester, where he studied U.S. Cold War strategy, European history, and international diplomacy. Before that, he had studied at Alfred University and Oxford University, and had been a finalist for a Rhodes scholarship. In addition to his research, Richard’s company, Richard Dolan Press, actively publishes innovative books by authors from around the world. His website is http://www.richarddolanpress.com

The Flynn Thing & Dyeing The Waters…A Sting Operation?

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
February 19, 2017

I rarely cover much U.S. domestic politics on this website because, well, frankly, because it’s both depressing and hysterical (in the humorous sense), all at the same time. That is the cost, I suppose, of running an empire on corruption, blackmail, globaloneyism, and just plain old fashioned Rockefailure-Soros stupidity for so long. Now, as I’ve been given to understand the whole episode of the Flynn resignation, he didn’t do much more than have a telephone conversation with a Russian diplomat, during which the Russian asked about sanctions(See http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2017/02/make-firing-michael-flynn.html), and Flynn responded that it would have to be taken up once the then President-elect was in office. Forgive me, but that sort of thing is what I thought national security advisors were supposed to do. But then the whole thing exploded into this corporate controlled media circus that President Trump is being influenced by the always-byzantine-never-to-be-trusted Russians and their evil Machiavellian criminal super-genius, Vladimir Putin, who, for the moment, has replaced the “Israel-and-the-Zionists-are-behind-everything” meme with the “Vladimir Putin is behind everything” meme. Next week it may be the Jesuits-are-behind-everything meme (and let’s not forget, Pope Francis is a Jesuit! Q.E.D.)

Now, I’ll believe that President Trump is a Russian agent when he builds his first high-rise casino in Moscow with the evil Machiavellian criminal super genius Vladimir Putin present at the ribbon cutting along with the balalaika band, and with a major equity stake in said casino (and hey, they have lots of Eskimos in Russia, so it could be an Indian casino, and everyone will be happy because it will be politically correct. That’s a hint, Vlad.  With careful planning, this could become a major modus operandi of the Trump-Putin cabal, giving new meaning to the phrase “pay to play” as Trump high rise casinos go up all over the world.).  And our wonderful always-informed-and-always-to-be-trusted corporate controlled media seem conveniently to have forgotten Darth Hillary’s little uranium sales and so on to Russia(See Russia? Look who’s really in bed with Moscow), not to mention the money that allegedly flowed into the Clinton coffers from Angela Merkel’s Germany (German taxpayer money, as I recall,see Merkel BACKED Hillary: Clinton Foundation received £4M German taxpayer cash pre-election), not to mention the (out)house of Saud. Nothing to see here, no foreign influence here, folks. Move along.

All that said, something about the Flynn thing has bothered me since it first surfaced, and that is that it seems to have all the hallmarks of a classic sting operation: the level of predictable outrage far exceeded the scale of the alleged breech by Flynn. Now, while I’ve shared that suspicion with a few friends privately, when I opened up my emails preparing to schedule this week’s blogs, I found the following intriguing article that was shared by Mr. G.L.R., and it outlines my suspicions far better than I ever could:

http://ronfor37.org/2017/02/15/is-the-flynn-resignation-a-sting/  (You’ll have to copy and paste this link into your browser, as the linking function would not work for some reason.)

Now, what always bothered me about the Flynn affair was something this article brings out: Flynn would hardly have been unaware that his conversations were being “listened to” by American intelligence, and it was this factor that led me to entertain my suspicion that the whole thing was a sting operation to begin with, a point which the article itself brings out, citing no less than the New York Times itself. But now comes the cruncher: the press, supposedly basing its stories on “inside sources”, cannot get the story’s details straight, an egregious example of “BMLS” (Benghazi Memory Lapse Syndrome). Well, after all, “at this point, what difference does it make?” Well, the difference, the problem, as the article points out, is this:

A foolproof method of identifying someone talking to the press is to give him a specific story.  If that story is published, you know where it came from, because it’s a unique story.  Why would the intelligence officials have so many different stories if they read the same transcripts?  The only possible answer is that each official was given a different transcript.  Why would the intelligence officials have so many different stories if they read the same transcripts?

The FBI cleared Flynn on January 23.  The “leaks” were published February 9.  So Trump has everything he needs to reform the CIA, NSA, etc.

The FBI and Senate Intelligence Committee are going to investigate now.  Trump ran his own sting a month back, when he identified intelligence officials as leakers.  Trump warned them that this was illegal.  It appears he’s taken dramatic action.  The end.(Emphasis added)

Now, years and years ago, I wrote an historical novel(only a part of which was ever published, and self-published at that), in which the villain just happens to be the head of the Byzantine Empire’s intelligence and foreign service (the Bureau of Barbarians). This individual suspected that the Emperor Charlemagne had a spy in the Byzantine Imperial court, but did not know who. So, he held a party, during which he pretended to let various suspects know that he had a spy in Charlemagne’s court, but to each suspect, he told a different name of his spy. When Charlemagne executed a particular individual for espionage and treason, the Byzantine spymaster knew who among his suspects was the spy. It’s a classic case of what people in spy craft call “dying the waters.” In this case, if the article is correct, and various people were shown different transcripts, then several waters were dyed, and several “sources” for the leaks are implied. And if this was a sting operation of this sort, then it also has enormous implications for political fallout as well, for with congressional investigations pending, those within both parties who are opposed to the administration of Mr. Trump, will be confronted with some embarrassing information…

But that, of course, is all high octane speculation. Time will tell.

See you on the flip side…

PropOrNot All-Star Organizers: Koch, Soros, CIA, MI6 Ukraine, All Together Now

December 15, 2016

PropOrNot: Evidence of a CIA Psychological Operation … On November 24, The Washington Post published a story citing the anonymous group PropOrNot. The story accused the Russians of building a large propaganda operation that worked to defeat Hillary Clinton and elect “insurgent candidate” Donald Trump. It claimed a large number of alternative news websites are acting as Russian agents, dupes, and useful idiots.  – BoilingFrogs/Rockwell

This article excerpted above explains the forces behind PropOrNot and identifies them from a leftist/Ukraine standpoint. But another article published not so long ago by Washington’s blog, here, makes the connection between Ukraine and the Koch Brothers.

This article will explain briefly what would seem to be full (or almost full) panoply of influences behind PropOrNot. The Koch Brothers along with the Scaife Foundation and some hugely powerful intel agencies have been identified as supporting the PropOrNot initiative. We’ve already written about this issue here and here.

But we were puzzled by some other articles that seemed to attribute PropOrNot to different influences, including those of the Clintons and some groups oddly affiliated with Ukraine. The Kochs and Clintons didn’t seem to fit together but as it turns out, there’s apparently a link thanks to Washington’s blog, which seems to  have solved this particular puzzle for us.

Here are some excerpts from an article published in early November 2016.

Koch Brothers Secretly Allied w. George Soros for Hillary Clinton … The leading financiers of the Republican Party, the Koch brothers, were exposed … by the great investigative journalist Lee Fang, as being solid supporters and heavy financiers of congressional candidates who have been leaders in expanding the U.S. military budget and moving America toward a police state (including militarization of the police).

The leading financier of the Democratic Party, George Soros, has long been known to provide major financial backing for the most-neoconservative Democratic candidates, such as Hillary Clinton, who favor every possible military invasion and coup (and see this, for more on that).

In fact, Soros was one of the top three financial backers (the other two were the U.S. government and the Netherlands government) for the television station in Ukraine that championed extermination of the people in Ukraine’s Donbass region, where the coup-imposed government, which he helped to install, is loathed.

And also on the Ukrainian matter, the Kochs have championed the view that when considering whether Crimea should be part of Russia, or else part of Ukraine, or else entirely independent, the people who live there shouldn’t have any opportunity to vote on the matter, and they should instead be forced to be ‘Ukrainians’, even if they loathe this post-coup Ukrainian government.

There we seem to have the connection in full, depending on the credibility of those reporting these linkages. In any event, we are fairly comfortable: Washington’s blog has been around a long time and the article is well-footnoted.

And so we are likely learning the Kochs via Soros are now integrated with larger, leftist/Ukraine technocratic/fascist elements … It makes sense that PropOrNot draws resources (or inspiration) from an  array of monied influences. The website itself is incredibly bold, a real statement of mighty intent.

The CIA is involved, as is obvious. And the CIA has relationships with such groups as the Institute of Modern Russia. The Boiling Frogs article excerpted at the beginning of this analysis explains that PropOrNot “has all the hallmarks of an intelligence operation.”

In fact, the strategy out of which PropOrNot was developed reportedly may stem from an article written in early 2008 by Cass Sunstein and colleague Adrian Vermeule titled simply “Conspiracy Theories.”

Sunstein and Vermeule argue the existence of conspiracy theories “may create serious risks, including risks of violence, and the existence of such theories raises significant challenges for policy and law.”

Importantly, the paper proposed “attacking targeted groups in cyberspace.”  Also: “Whatever the tactical details, there would seem to be ample reason for government efforts to introduce some cognitive diversity into the groups that generate conspiracy theories.”

These ideas since then seem to have been put into practice in one way or another by both the Pentagon and MI6 which reportedly collaborates with the 361st Civil Affairs Brigade of the US Army.

The Pentagon and MI6 have focused on energy on Ukraine and on undermining Russia’s presence and claims to Crimea. The Center for European Policy Analysis, a Washington think tank dedicated to the study of Central and Eastern Europe also seems to be part of this group. (Its advisory council includes Zbigniew Brzezinski along with Madeleine Albright.)

More:

Although PropOrNot strives to remain anonymous, it does reveal connections to Modern Russia and its Interpreter Mag and thus, through Voice of America, its association with the CIA. Interpreter Mag is listed under “Related Projects” on its website.

PropOrNot also collaborates with Polygraph Fact-Check, a purported fact-checking website produced by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and Voice of America, in other words, the CIA.

Another so-called fact-checking operation is listed, Politifact. It is a project of the Tampa Bay Times and the Poynter Institute and shares a donor with the Clinton Foundation, the Omidyar Network, created by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar. He is a major donor of Kiev-based Hromadske TV, “the symbol of the info wars between Moscow and the Western world,” according to Forbes.

And there you have it. Via George Soros … the Kochs and Scaife Foundation (and others) are linked to an entirely opposite (seemingly so) series of power centers including Ukraine “think tanks” and NGOs along with the most powerful Democratic groups including the Clintons. (And remember, we probably haven’t reached the top of this sprawling network.)

Conclusion: This is truly a broad array of resources as might be expected for a group that wants to wipe out an entire media industry. The question must then be asked with a mixture of hope and anxiety: How does President Trump fit in?

Editor’s Note: Some of this might seem like politics-as-usual, though of a very dirty variety, but the ramifications could certainly affect the alternative media that has already been accused of co-conspiring with Russia to affect the elections. The Daily Bell is a libertarian publication and its articles have often stated that people ought to look out for their own interests first as best they can because politics are unpredictable and usually don’t change much – or just make things worse. Additionally, as a libertarian publication, DB has published articles in the past explaining that RT and Putin himself are part of the larger questionable dialectic being presented by East and West. In no way can DB be considered a proponent of Russian propaganda.

Washington Post: Fake News Is An Intergalactic Conspiracy; Nailed It

December 11, 2016

Cautionary Note: This is not an article. Nor is it fake news. It is something called fiction. Most people no longer understand that term. If they did, they would not be interested. How could fiction possibly reflect what is happening in the real world? Metaphor? Baloney! What does that stupid elite term even mean? Enrichment of the mind? Don’t be silly. We don’t have time for it. Kids get all that in college—and then they can’t find a job. Fiction died a long time ago. Who wrote fiction? Can’t remember. A few crazy Russians. A few British men. A guy named Hemingway, and then he killed himself. Serves him right. Now we deal in memes. Meme vs. meme. It’s a war. Twitter. 140 characters. Even 140 is too many. Puts a strain on the brain. What is a FICTION WRITER? He uses words to “make things different?” Who does he think he is? Just give us the bottom line. Sum up the piece in 25 words or less. Stop screwing around. Too many words make people nervous. There should be a federal limit on the number of words any person is allowed to write in a given day.

Note #2: I will say this, strange as it may seem. When I occasionally write and publish fiction at this blog, I probably have more readers than half the fiction writers in America. How is that possible? A clue: I’ve been writing at this site/blog for 15 years, almost every day. That’s how. And I’ve confirmed, through experience, that there are many people out there who still have minds and want to use them. This gradually dawned on me as a revelation. If you are one of those people, I salute you. If you aren’t, I don’t have to say anything, because you haven’t come far enough in this piece to read these words. Okay…here we go…

A document has been leaked. It’s a transcript of a phone call. Well, one side of a phone call. The man speaking is the editor at the Washington Post, Carl Von Garble Hogfogger III. Harvard grad. His uncle worked for the CIA. Carl, on the phone, is explaining, to an unknown personage of obvious importance, what the hell is happening at his newspaper in its new war against “fake news.” Carl is trying to make sense.

Excerpt One from phone call: “Look, we’re trying. We’re accusing everybody we can. We’re making a case for fake news as a virus that has spread, unchecked, through every independent alt site and blog. It started from Russia. Putin. That’s our first big headline. We don’t care anymore about the facts. This is a war, sir. And we have to win it, or we’ll all go down in flames. Fucking flames. I was talking to XXXX about it, and he agrees. Throw whatever we can at the wall and see what sticks. Now Hillary has stuck her nose in. We told her to stay in the background, but you know how she is. She wants to destroy the universe. She’s that Hindu goddess, shatterer of worlds. She’s in the same psych ward I’ll be in if we can’t…I understand, sir. Yes, but we’re all feeling unhinged. We’re up against half a million blogs and sites. Can’t we just spray them all with a drug and put them to sleep? Infect them with a super malware bug or whatever it’s called and freeze their asses? Can you believe that prick Zuckerberg said Facebook won’t cut off Trump’s account because he’s the president and everything he posts is automatically news? CIA-connected money launched Zuckerberg’s whole operation and now he’s got a conscience? What kind of crap is that? And Trump is posting YouTube videos! He’s bypassing us! He’s going straight to his audience. That shit has to stop immediately. This is the real danger, sir…yes, I know, but…okay…David Rockefeller said WHAT? Does he think we can just wave a wand and make everything go back to the way it was? We’re OUTED, sir. People know we’re the fakers. It’s an untenable position. That’s what I’m trying to tell you…”

Excerpt Two from phone call: “I was even thinking we could do a piece on UFOs and try to deflect attention from…yes, sir, I know. Podesta is interested in UFOs. Hell, I’d put him in some kind of weird costume and have him walk across the White House lawn. I’d turn our whole goddamn paper into a tabloid if I could, at this point. Brad and Angelina had a secret baby. Brad wrote Jen an apology letter. The mummies in Egyptian pyramids are still alive. Give us a distracting war, sir. Right now. A clash between US and Russian planes over Syria. Take down the Dow. Blame it on Trump. Tell Soros to have his people burn half a city. Get us out of this…”

Excerpt Three from phone call: “I want MSNBC gone! They’re making things worse. Their version of attacking fake news is even worse than ours. Get the NSA to shut them down, sir. I beg you. Brian Williams is attacking fake news? Jesus H Christ! The man has big balls, I’ll grant him that. He gets exiled for lying about being under fire in Iraq and now he’s the defender of honesty in journalism? Listen closely—I’m convinced somebody is shoveling money under the table to those MSNBC bastards. You know, to discredit OUR whole attack against fake news. It’s a clever inside-out op. Who’s that guy at Zero Hedge? He might have big-time connections on Wall Street. He’s getting millions and paying off MSNBC to look as ridiculous as they can. I spoke to XXX at the CIA and told him to look into this, and he told me I’m crazy. Can you believe it? I’m a CIA asset, and…
