President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and a former business associate, Rick Gates, were indicted Monday on charges of conspiracy against the United States, money laundering and several other financial charges… The indictment lays out 12 counts including conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, acting as an unregistered foreign agent and several charges related to failing to report foreign bank and financial accounts. [AP]Meanwhile, Ruling Party Conspiracy Theories about 1/6 have extended so far as to appropriate the language of “9/11 Truth” and refer to the events as an “Inside Job.”
SEN. NIELDS: In certain communist countries, the government’s activities are kept secret from the people. But that’s not the way we do things in America, is it? NORTH: … By their very nature covert operations or special activities are a lie. There is great deceit, deception practiced in the conduct of covert operation. They are at essence a lie. We make every effort to deceive the enemy as to our intent, our conduct and to deny the association of the United States with those activities… The effort to conduct these covert operations was made in such a way that our adversaries would not have knowledge of them, or that we could deny American association with it, or the association of this government with those activities. And that is not wrong. SEN. NIELDS: The American people were told by this government that our government had nothing to do with the Hasenfus airplane, and that was false. And it is a principal purpose of these hearings to replace secrecy and deception with disclosure and truth.So much for the anti-Conspiracy Theory bill’s logically self-defeating design. Of course, no one with the remotest understanding of how things work would think that this new effort to weed out conspiracy theorists from the national security state would apply to Russiagaters, or a host of other fashionable conspiracies embraced by our corrupt ruling class. Again, this bill and other measures like it don’t represent good faith attempts at weeding out both Ruling Party conspiracy theorists and Ruled Party conspiracy theorists from America’s national security apparatus. Instead, they seek to weed out those sympathetic to President Trump’s Make America Great Again (MAGA) from the national security state, so that the national security state might more effectively and fully cleanse America of MAGA sympathetic beliefs. The use of “conspiracy theory” as a censorship predicate to neutralize opposition narratives and political mobilization is nothing new (see, e.g., a book by a UT professor on the term’s origin and evolution). What is new, and disturbing, is how the regime has incorporated its attack on opposition party conspiracy allegations into its broader project of labeling Trump supporters as de facto domestic terrorists and marshaling the full force of the national security state to destroy them.
The U.S. military on Wednesday acknowledged it was unsure about how to address white nationalism and other extremism in its ranks, and announced plans for military-wide stand-downs pausing regular activity at some point in the next 60 days to tackle the issue. The decision to a hold a stand-down was made by Lloyd Austin, who made history by becoming the military’s first Black defense secretary after a long career rising in the ranks of the Army. In his confirmation hearing, Austin underscored the need to rid the military of “racists and extremists”. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said Austin ordered the stand-down after a meeting with the U.S. military branch leaders, who are under pressure to show progress in combating extremism after current and former military servicemembers were found to have participated in the siege of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. [Reuters]In response to a recent Tucker Carlson monologue critical of the United States’ military prerogative regarding sending pregnant women to fight our wars, the U.S. military circled the wagons to launch an unprecedented aerial bombardment on an American journalist. It’s no longer difficult to imagine the Armed Forces’ “counter-extremism” program executing a drone strike on the other side of the Overton Window. Tucker’s monologue is, for now, still available on Fox News’s YouTube channel. Archive it while you can: But while the purge of “domestic extremist” political beliefs is still underway at the Pentagon, early reports from military officers on social media indicate our worst fears are being confirmed: At the same time, the Pentagon is having a public freak-out over the preponderance of troops who view the events of 1/6 as roughly equal to the summer-long race riots associated with the death of George Floyd. Keep in mind that these so-called “peaceful” riots happened to coincide with an unprecedented 25 percent nationwide increase in homicides for the year. Consider the following jaw-droppings remarks from Chief Master Sergeant Ramón Colón-López, the senior enlisted adviser to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff: Meanwhile, Military Twitter has confirmed that “counter-extremism” sessions feature training materials from the disgraced Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a far left scandal-plagued organization that formally included Dr. Ben Carson on its national list of “extremist” figures. Evidently, the famed African-American neurosurgeon and former HUD Secretary is too extreme to be accepted into the American military in 2021. Yesterday, PJ Media purported to obtain a copy of some of these training materials:
I have obtained a copy of all the materials regarding the sudden new threat of “Extremism” used for training in the United States military. Throughout the services, service members have been shocked at the Biden blitz to root out ideas and people who stand in the way of the administration’s transformative agenda. One individual in the training told me, “The military is one of the last institutions left that hasn’t been radicalized by the progressives. That’s why it is being targeted now.” All personnel are being subjected to a PowerPoint presentation packed with progressive ideology and misstatements of the Constitution. Designated officers are conducting the training on bases, stations, and ships at sea. The slides contain misstatements of the law and warped characterizations of fellow citizens who believe in constitutional principles. [PJ Media]In response to further calls for information on “extremism” purge meetings, conservative journalist and activist Jack Posobiec posted the following account (emphasis added): Further testimonials sent to Posobiec are below: https://twitter.com/JackPosobiec/status/1373012335493779462 https://twitter.com/JackPosobiec/status/1373014634895134726 And, finally, as if to swoop in for the sole express purpose of confirming the thesis of this article — that “counter-extremism” is a Counter-American, Counterintelligence Operation — the U.S. Army Counterintelligence Division itself even took to Twitter to pile on more attacks on a civilian, Tucker Carlson, for opinions expressed within the civilian realm. https://twitter.com/Real_ArmyCI/status/1370217068327530496 They did this from their officially authorized, blue-check verified, government-paid-to-maintain account (and notably, a communications channel from which the former Commander-in-Chief has been permanently banned). Closing Note If all of that was not enough to convince of you of a Counter-American, Counterintelligence operation being run by the U.S. national security state to stamp out MAGA, consider the following article last week from Anne Applebaum. Applebaum’s piece stresses the need for increased China-style Internet censorship to stop the proliferation of dissident political opinions. A sample passage reads:
In the surreal interregnum that followed the 2020 election, the price of America’s refusal to reform its internet suddenly became very high. Then-President Donald Trump and his supporters pushed out an entirely false narrative of electoral fraud. Those claims were reinforced on extreme-right television channels, then repeated and amplified in cyberspace, creating an alternative reality inhabited by millions of people where Trump had indeed won. QAnon—a conspiracy theory that had burst out of the subterranean internet and flooded onto platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram, convincing millions that political elites are a cabal of globalist pedophiles—spilled into the real world and helped inspire the mobs that stormed the Capitol. Twitter made the extraordinary decision to ban the U.S. president for encouraging violence; the amount of election disinformation in circulation immediately dropped. [The Atlantic]But Anne Applebaum is no ordinary opinion journalist. She was nailed as a covert intelligence conduit — a spook — in the “Integrity Initiative” leaks of 2018. For the uninitiated, the Integrity Initiative leaks revealed a joint US-UK-NATO covert action operation in which a cabal of counterintelligence operatives organized a global propaganda bullhorn to amplify the Ruling Party Conspiracy Theory of Russiagate. These civil society intermediaries, functioning as undercover intelligence cut-outs, were secretly organized into clusters by countries, such as a US Cluster, a UK Cluster, a France Cluster, a Spain Cluster, and so on. This covert, state-sponsored cabal even leaped into action to block specific political candidates from attaining key roles in public service: These US-UK-NATO intelligence-backed cluster cells went to extraordinary lengths to prevent public knowledge of their operations: An excellent primer on the Integrity Initiative leaks is available here and here, as well as this casual nine-part YouTube series: Bringing this back to our Counter-American Intelligence story, you can see the names of both Anne Applebaum and her Atlantic article co-author Peter Pomerantsev in this clean screenshot from the Integrity Initiative leaks: Zooming in a little closer: Dis you, guys? Fine, you say. It’s just an international conspiracy covertly operated by MAGA’s chief globalist antagonists to coordinate media, military and elite policy-making decisions on foreign policy issues like Russia. How does that effect me? Well, have a gander at Anne Applebaum’s Twitter this week and you’ll see her retweet the glowing approval of her Counter-American Intelligence plot from none other than Peter Strzok. Yes, Former FBI Chief of Counterespionage Peter Strzok, arch-villain of the Russiagate show trial and multi-year hoax, who collaborated with FBI insiders to plot the vaunted “insurance policy” in 2016. Yes, FBI Counterespionage Chief Peter Strzok, who texted FBI lawyer Lisa Page (who herself got busted for falsifying General Michael Flynn’s 302) assuring her that the FBI would collectively stop Donald Trump’s election: In closing, this Twitter exchange between disgraced FBI Counterespionage Chief Peter Strzok and transatlantic intelligence spook Anne Applebaum is worth seeing with your own eyes. Who has the intelligence community declared its top “CI” (Counterintelligence) target? It’s you, citizen. And if pointing that out is alleging a conspiracy, then let us reply in turn as they do: Yes. J’accuse. Read more at: Revolver.news and Tyranny.news.
