How to build a boogieman called terror

with one comment

bildeMeet James Cromitie who was at the wrong place at the wrong time. Many young blacks, especially those railroaded into prison by our racist and unjust drug laws, have two choices in life: join a gang or join the Muslims. Cromitie picked the Muslims.

But then he was unlucky enough to visit a Mosque in his hometown of Newburgh, New York, the same day an FBI informant arrived trolling for terrorist wannabes.

See the FBI has 15,000 informants on its payroll. I call these dudes “spooks.” Many are criminals who bartered their way out of a jam by turning into secret FBI agents. The FBI dude from Pakistan took an interest in Cromitie and asked him if he’d like to make $250,000.

As someone who has bicycled through the town of Newburgh on the way to Woodstock, I can assure you it’s one of the most poverty-stricken areas in upstate New York and the promise of a $250,000 payday is enough to get one of its poorer residents to agree to just about anything, although the FBI tapes reveal Cromitie would not agree to do any act that hurt anyone, only to destroy property that the FBI dude wanted blown up.

shahedhussainMeet Shahed Hussain, who hatched this plot and recruited Cromitie. He drove a different luxury car to every meeting with Cromitie and seems to have amassed a fleet of high-end vehicles from doing undercover work for the FBI the last few years, but then there are another 15,000 informants just like Hussain trolling America and trying to recruit poor saps into jihad honeytraps, and many of them undoubtedly have amassed their own luxury fleets as well.

After promising Cromitie $250,000 for a couple day’s work, Hussain asked Cromitie to recruit some more Muslims, as this jihad needed more terrorists in order to look more like a serious conspiracy. Hassain lured the four men across state lines to pick up a stinger missile launcher for him. Crossing state lines turned this conspiracy into a Federal matter and the stinger missiles made it a mandatory 25-year sentence thanks to the Patriot Act.

Eventually this gang that couldn’t shoot straight was asked to deliver two fake plastic explosive bombs into two cars parked outside a Jewish Temple in the posh Riverdale section of the Bronx. Someone had parked the cars and left the doors unlocked for this purpose. So you had a government informant from Pakistan, sheep-dipping four poor dudes who didn’t have ten dollars between them, none of whom even owned a vehicle, and these dudes are asked to pose as terrorists to make $250,000 each in one day? Since a mob hit typically costs $5,000, one wonders why anyone could be dumb enough to believe they were going to get a million dollars for dropping a bag into a car in front of a Temple, but these guys did believe this was going to happen. They thought they were playing Hussain, when it was the other way around.

Over 100 police officers, support helicopters, riot vehicles, flatbed trucks, SWAT teams in full combat gear immediately surrounded the four unarmed men, smashed the windows of the vehicle they were inside (owned by the FBI informant) dragged them out of the car and paraded them in front of the national media as ruthless jihadists ready to strike at innocent Americans because they hate the west, not four slobs trying find a route out of poverty. Cromite and his unlucky friends are now serving 25-to-life.

But this is nothing unusual. This drama is played out every month in America because terrorism has to be manufactured or the wheels are going to fall off the hoodwink. In fact, no real Mosque in America has ever been found guilty of fomenting terrorism, and every legitimate Muslim knows when a newcomer walks in and starts talking jihad, he is a government agent trying to entrap people. Talking jihad in an American Mosque is the quickest way to get kicked out of any Mosque. But the FBI stooges have to troll real Mosques so they can make sure people realize this is a religious war.

An amazing documentary on this case was just aired on HBO, The Newburgh Four. Why these men haven’t been pardoned by President Obama just based on this film is beyond me. Will someone please reign in Homeland Security and not allow this sort of scam to continue? I just hope the Newburgh Four win their appeal with the Supreme Court because there’s never been a more clear-cut case of entrapment in history.

The wikipedia page on this case is a travesty and I hope someone can get some shreds of truth on that page someday, because right now it’s just an apology for a very weak case and contains few revelations from the documentary.

Who benefits from terrorism?

with one comment

640px-Lyman_L._Lemnitzer“What John Foster Dulles was in civilian clothes, Leminzter was in uniform.—anonymous Army general describing the post-WWII impact of General Lyman Lemnitzer

How many realize that while Chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff, General Lyman Lemnitzer approved plans to kill innocents and blame it on Cuba as an excuse to invade? The plan was known as Operation Northwoods, and all that was required for it to go operational was the commander-in-chief’s signature.

Fortunately, recently-elected President John Kennedy refused to sign that document, or a slew of terror operations, some of which involved murdering innocent civilians in Washington DC, would have been enacted. The details of the plan were not made public for decades, and even today, few seem aware that our Pentagon is on record supporting false flag terrorism as a strategic tool.

Interesting that Lemnitzer was replaced at the Pentagon and shuffled off to Europe and swiftly became the commander of NATO, and during his tenure a massive program known as Gladio was created to foment terror operations just like Northwoods, only this was happening on a more massive scale. Gladio quickly grew to a secret army of thugs with deep pockets and advanced weaponry and encrypted communications, and many of these thugs had Nazi backgrounds and they were being paid to commit terrorist acts while posing as Communists.

The only reason we know about Gladio is because an honest Italian prosecutor leaked the story while investigating the collapse of a bank. This led to a huge scandal that implicated many in Italian politics, the military and the Vatican, and the center of this conspiracy resided in a Masonic Lodge known as Propaganda Due (P2).

Any terrorist operation can find funding provided the terrorists are ruthless and devoted to spilling blood because it’s to the benefit of the Masters of War to keep the blood lust raging, so investing in terror is a good place for any Master of War to put his money.

When Israel was created, the most progressive elements from both cultures (European Jews and native Palestinians) could have harmonized and shared the nation in peace, while violent fanatics imprisoned on both sides. In this world, their children would have been taught to harmonize, not to shoot each other. Cultures can harmonize and work for mutual benefit, and in fact, it happens all the time, and nature loves it when you mix gene pools, it’s known as hybrid vigor and the same thing works for cultures.

Unfortunately, it was in the interest of the Merchants of War to employ Israel in a global strategy of tension and keep their profit streams humming for the benefit of the Bank of England and Sullivan and Cromwell (the real heartbeat of Wall Street, a firm headed by John Foster Dulles to bring this blog full circle. Dulles, it should be noted, is cousin to the Rockefellers, and his brother Allen founded the CIA, and headed the Warren Commission coverup. Allen, like Lyman before him, it should also be noted was disgraced and fired by Kennedy).

So even though it’s supposed to be a very sacred and holy place, Israel has become the symbol of endless war and global apocalypse.

So that’s why all peacemakers on both sides were swiftly eliminated to make way for the terrorists to take the stage. And once you kill, people go blood simple and you can easily mislead and misdirect them and get them to kill back in revenge. The Palestine movement was out-flanked by Hamas and by now those running Hamas may not even realize they are working in the interest of the Masters of War. They’ve had an entire lifetime of constant war now, and that breeds fanaticism, and obviously the plan is working because there is no peace movement in Israel.

And if you doubt the truth of what I am saying, just watch the film Munich, or read the book by former Mossad assassin Juval Aviv. Because I think Juval bumped up against Gladio and if you watch the movie, it might help you put some of the pieces together.

No one benefits from all this terror. Except the Masters of War.

Gentle giant murdered by police and paramedics

with 4 comments

beliefnet-mattew-currie-astrology-eric-garner

Eric Garner was much beloved by his neighbors as the “gentle giant” of the neigborhood, a peaceful man known to help others in need. However, a few years ago, Garner accused some local police of sexually abusing him, charges made in a court document filed while he was in custody in Rikers awaiting trial.

This public document was later quoted in a Staten Island newspaper. Garner had accused an unnamed officer of handcuffing him after a traffic stop and sodomizing him, and when Garner protested he was going to file charges for this abuse, he was arrested and charged with multiple violations. It was a scene right out of The Bad Lieutenant. And it was Garner’s word against the cops, so he lost.

Apparently, Garner has been arrested several times since then and the charges are always selling black-market cigarettes, and/or possession of marijuana. So when a police crew confronted Garner in the street the other day, and immediately tried to handcuff him and place him under arrest, Garner protested. Can you blame him?

But Garner was immediately put into a choke hold and thrown to the ground, even though he complained he couldn’t breath and was in obvious distress. Two paramedics arrived at the scene, but administered no assistance, and simply watched Garner die from a heart attack while lying on his stomach wearing handcuffs, when they probably could have given him oxygen and saved him.

The initial police report did not mention a choke-hold initiating the heart attack, probably because police choke-holds are against policy in New York  City, and not a legal police technique. The only reason this case exploded is because someone shot a video with a cellphone of what really happened and put that video online. And suddenly paramedics were suspended without pay, the police put on desk duty, and now all involved face huge civil suits, as does the city of New York.

The video is chilling to watch. “I’m tired of this, this stops today,” complains Garner, who neighbors say had just broken up a fight, which is why the police were responding in the first place. “I’m minding my own business officer. I didn’t sell nothing. Take your hands off me….I can’t breath….I can’t breath…I can’t breath…. (collapses and dies).

The incident is symptomatic of our drug laws at work, laws that unfairly target minorities and ramp up hostility between the police and ethnic neighborhoods. There is a great divide between the poor and our police and it is growing.

The real 9/11 suspects

leave a comment »

mlakar-headshotProbably the best book on 9/11 is Another Nineteen, Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects by Kevin Robert Ryan, a book that peers deep into the biographies of those suspiciously residing in key strategic positions. If 9/11 was a deep intelligence project designed to jump-start a war, this trail should be an effective one.

I don’t pretend to know what happened on 9/11, although I do know the Commission that supposedly investigated it was handcuffed from the start and much has been obscured and hidden and many lies told by the backpedaling Pentagon. When two Congressmen recently read the deleted secret pages concerning Saudi complicity removed from the final report, it put them into shock and completely rearranged their understanding of the event. Citizens of New York City are also pressing for an investigation into why Building 7 collapsed without investigation.

Meet Paul Mlakar (above). While working as Vice President of JAYCOR, unofficial spinoff of SAIC, Mlakar obtained a number of patents on explosive containment devices for aircraft. In 1998, he performed classified simulations measuring the damage the Pentagon would suffer from a truck bomb.

After 9/11 Mlakar was put in charge of investigating the crash at the Pentagon.

Interestingly enough, Mlakar is married to the daughter of Col. Robert P. Halloran, a former intelligence officer and acting director of the NSA under Allen Dulles (1960-61).

What Ryan’s book does primarily is show how a small cabal of 19 inside America could have easily run the event, and what is truly scary is the dots point to a NATO connection. In other words, this cabal has close ties to European centers of power, so when people say 9/11 was an “inside job” I don’t think that comment is necessarily completely true, although certainly a few major players inside the US establishment and military were involved, the conspiracy stretches across the pond to our mother countries.

The real story behind Sugarland Express

leave a comment »

DentChaseBobby Dent was driving through Port Arthur with his wife Fae, when a patrol car appeared behind him, red lights twirling at 2 AM in the morning. It’s never been determined what exactly the Dents were up to at that time of morning, but whatever it was, it was enough to cause Bobby to panic and try and outrun the squad car. He ended up crashing into a tree in the woods outside town.

Before the police could apprehend the couple, they disappeared into the woods where they located an empty cabin with a working telephone. After meditating on his situation for a few hours, Bobby called the operator and brazenly told her that he and his wife and been hitchhiking when they were beaten and robbed and they required transportation to a doctor or hospital.  At 6 AM, a highway patrolman appeared at the cabin to assist the couple, but when he entered the cabin, Fae and Bobby pointed revolvers at him.

Without any plan of what they were doing next, the Dents took the trooper hostage and began driving to Houston, Fae holding a shotgun to his head in the backseat while Bobby pressed a Magnum against his side. Apparently the Dents did not realize driving down a busy highway in this manner was likely to create commotion, something O. J. Simpson would learn many years later when he made his panicky escape attempt. By the time they reached Houston, the caravan behind them numbered over 100 vehicles.

JamesKennethCroneJim Crone was the kidnapped officer and DPS Captain Jerry Miller in charge of the rescue. To his great credit, Miller refused to blockade or impede the Dents, and even allowed them to make refuel and bathroom stops without any interference. His only plan was to prevent the Dents from doing harm to anyone.

Along the way, Bobby and Fae decided to turn north so they could visit Fae’s two children from a previous marriage, who were living with their grandmother. Captain Miller made a deal with Bobby that Fae could see her kids for a few minutes and then get a 15-minute headstart to continue their escape. Bobby was gullible enough to believe him and when he opened the door to Fae’s mom’s house with Crone in front of him, Crone threw himself on the floor. Bobby took a shotgun blast in the chest as well as a few revolver rounds in the heart.

Fae dropped her weapon and sobbed, “They’ve killed him.”

The press took a photo of her staring at Bobby’s lifeless body right after the killing.

IlaFayeDentFae ended up serving a few months in jail and was then reunited with her kids. Steven Spielberg was 30 when he made the film version of this story, although if you’ve seen the film, you’ll realize how much the story was twisted for cheap emotional effect.

Sugarland Express was Spielberg’s first feature and it bombed, although it’s a highly entertaining movie provided you don’t know the real story. In retrospect, I believe his rise to one of the greatest wag-the-dog producers of our time was ordained from the beginning. Certain people just have all the right connections to get sheep-dipped as a Knight in Shining Armor, and no matter what the outcome of their missions, their promotions will be assured, so it should come as no surprise he was handed a shark film next, and once again showed how effective his tricks could be, no matter if the content was somewhat shallow.

Understanding war for profit

with 3 comments

bignbiggerJFKI see a lot of people playing into the dialectical game with all the recent activity in the Middle East, taking sides, supporting hate and bigotry of one culture against another. It’s the way it’s been for centuries since wars are engineered for profit, although most people never figure that hoodwink out.

I’ll explain the whole corrupt system in a nutshell if you care to drop your prejudices and hear me out.

Around 50,000 years ago, cannabis and humans harmonized somewhere near the Ukraine, and the relationship was not unlike that of a Lakota and buffalo, a sacred relationship involving honor, respect and compassion, as well as a lifeline to survival. The original tribe that made the cannabis connection invented the wheel and domesticated horses. They eventually became known as “Sakas.” But because they didn’t have a written language, they are known to history as “Scythians,” so named by the Greeks for a harvesting tool they invented for cannabis. Gay Sakas were the honored priests, and were flamboyant drag queens centuries ahead of their time. Women fought alongside the men, riding horses and shooting arrows when necessary. (Saka women were the real Amazons.) Both men and women wore pointed, brimless hats similar to the Phygerian caps so popular during the Age of Revolution to represent solidarity for the common man and an end to aristocratic oppression. But that hat also morphed into a witch’s hat whenever brims were added.

Christian priests kept the common man in darkness for centuries, forbidding access to the Tree of Knowledge, as well as a written language. The Reformation was about finally giving kids access to an education, something Jewish kids never lost. After a few hundred years, Jews had evolved into some of the smartest people on earth thanks mostly to being able to read and write, and soon they were hired as bankers for the aristocracy, something engineered into the system by the Vatican ban on usury for Christians.

This was a particularly good arrangement for the aristocracy, because when necessary, they could call a pogrom, kill rich Jews and seize their money. To protect assets, rich Jews became international and moved assets around. And they also began buying titles and marrying impoverished royals, converting to Christianity in some cases, and turning into another branch of the aristocracy, although usually a separate branch with different secret societies, country clubs and fraternities. In the New World, you have the oligarchs, the ancestors of the royals given grants and powers, and you have elite Jewish families who began as court Jews.

The real masters of war may reside in European centers of power. When people say conspiracy doesn’t exist, they fail to understand our entire legal system is constructed around the concept that most major crimes involve conspiracy and conspiracy is lurking almost everywhere.

Consider how easy it is to arrange a leak-proof conspiracy. First, create a professional organization, society, charity, foundation, or corporation. At the head is placed a spook, pedophile, psychotic, or anyone with something big to hide who can’t refuse a command. Use bottomless pockets of cash to hire staff, fund research, and secretly pursue some agenda known only to person at the top, who hires and fires at will. This person at the top is told nothing and follows orders or is replaced.

Very quickly, you have an entrenched, dogmatic system that will protect its own existence and not one person has any clue this system was built by a hidden force. If you went around telling people, “hey, we’re fomenting war for profit, and making a fortune by whacking innocents on both sides to get the blood feuds raging”…..then someone might crack, develop a conscience and expose the hoodwink. But in reality, nobody knows anything, except that if you say the wrong thing to the boss, he’s going to break your rice bowl, and it’s going to be difficult to find employment at another professional society or international corporation or charity of any magnitude because these top dogs all seem to know each other.

Revolution was a game. The royals in France, Germany and Russia all lost their titles, most of their property and some lost their heads. When new systems were put in place, parallel worlds were created, one run through the old money aristocracy, the other through the court Jews. This was to engineer a dialectic and while these two forces often appear to be at odds, I suspect if you move to the top of the food chain, you’ll find bosses from both sides sitting around the same board table somewhere.

So when you see people attacking Zionism, and blaming Jews for all the ills in the world, try to keep in mind the average Jew is a longstanding victim of persecution and his entire culture suffers from PTSD, which is why it’s so easy to get their blood boiling. But then this is true of a lot of Germans, Russians and even the British who lived through the Blitz.

What I seek to do is harmonize all the religions as rivers to the same sea, and expose the war for profit hoodwink through education, so the Oligarchy behind this hoodwink cannot continue to play us off against each other.

My Ultimate New York City Quick Getaway

with one comment

photo_7f45e43I’ve lived in Manhattan for 30 years, and I’ve tried all the great escapes, from Fire Island (my original favorite beach), to the Hamptons (too snooty and too much traffic), to the North Shore (still too much traffic), and eventually upstate to Woodstock, which became the favorite summer destination for many years (so much so I bought a house there). But over the years I grew weary of the 90-minute drive to Woodstock, so for the last decade, I’ve been going to Long Branch, ever since I learned how to transport myself from Manhattan to this palm-tree studded five-star oasis, where I can stay for $330 a night, and my total travel expenses are $70, and that includes the cost of transporting me and two kids. And the best part is getting there without setting foot near a single car-choked highway.

web-seastreak1jpgI might be ruining my little secret, but if you’re looking for a quick and easy escape from the steamy streets of New York City this summer, I highly recommend jumping on the Seastreak Ferry at 35th Street and the East River (or South Street Seaport). The ride alone is worth the price of admission, as you’ll pass under four bridges on your way to the Jersey Shore 30 minutes away. If you don’t want to spend the night in a five-star hotel, just get off at the first stop (Sandy Hook), where you can walk, bicycle or ride a free bus to one of five immaculate beaches, and the northern-most one has amazing views of New York. It’s the least populated of all the Sandy Hook beaches, so you never run into the sort of crowds you find at Coney Island. And you don’t have to sit in a subway train for an hour.

sandyhook_mapSandy Hook was a hideout for pirates when this country was founded, and it has numerous sheltered sandy coves perfect for stashing treasure. There’s even a dog beach on the southwestern side walking distance from the ferry. (You’ll need a carrier to bring a pet on board the boat.) If you get off at Sandy Hook, be sure and return around 4 PM to catch the last ferry back to New York City. Amazingly, the ferry is free for children from Monday to Friday. This has to be one of the last great freebies left in New York.

photo copy 2But if one afternoon at a spectacular beach isn’t enough, I recommend staying on board until the ferry docks at Highlands, the closest town to Sandy Hook, and located directly beneath the highest point on the North American eastern seaboard (see photo left), a strategic lookout for ships moving in and out of New York harbor for a century or more, and no doubt once an important site for Native American vision questing. An enormous condo complex now squats on the highest point.

You can bring a bicycle on the ferry for an extra $10 round-trip and ride along the boardwalk all the way down to Ocean Place Resort, a distance of eight miles. But you can also call a local cab service as you board the ferry, and they’ll have a cab meet you at the dock when you land. The short cab ride is $13, with an additional dollar for each additional rider, making a total round-trip travel expense $66.

1If you want to spend $360 a night, the photo at left shows the view from your private balcony (ask for southern exposure if you want a sun-drenched view of the outdoor pool or northern exposure if you just want to see some spectacular sunsets from your balcony). This is about as crowded as the massive outdoor pool gets on a week-day. The hotel also has its own private beach and one of the best local surf breaks. If you book a lower floor with limited view, you can get the week-day price for a room down to $330 a night plus tax. Note the Tiki bar surrounded by palm trees and below that, red canopies that shelter the outdoor restaurant. There’s also an indoor pool and hot tub located inside the spa (the building in the upper right of the photo). The hotel basically replicates a Miami Beach experience without having to get on a plane. The edge of Pier Village can be seen in the upper right, a popular Jersey Shore tourist destination for high-end shops. There’s a decent restaurant called Avenue right on the boardwalk, and a great homemade chocolate shop that sells caramel apples and frozen chocolate bananas, among many other treats. The chocolate shop is the most popular place in Pier Village.

photo copyRoom service at Ocean Place is decent, and the resort has a variety of restaurants and bars sprinkled throughout the property. I like to get my coffee and bagels at the local bakery in Pier Village, because it costs a fraction of room service, and I typically buy cheap lunches at the Mexican supermarket three blocks away in downtown Long Branch, where Mexican cokes go for $1.50. As soon as you leave the hotel and walk west, you realize you’re in a ghetto and many houses and storefronts along the route are empty and abandoned. I imagine someday this area will rebound because it’s so close to New York City and has such an amazing beach. Bob Dylan was picked up wandering around this area looking into windows of long abandoned properties, perhaps seeking inspiration from faded memories lingering inside. Someone called the local cops to report his “suspicious behavior.” The cops didn’t believe his story and since he wasn’t carrying any money or ID, they brought him back to Ocean Place, where the staff identified him as The Bob Dylan.

If you want to maximize your money and experience, depart on Monday and return on Thursday. You’ll be traveling against the rush hour tides, and never have to deal with crowds, either on the ferry or at the hotel. But if you want to party, things do pick up considerably during the weekends.
