Deep State Pressure Causes Harvard to Rescind Chelsea Manning’s Visiting Fellow Invitation

CHELSEA MANNING. STILL A DUDE NO MATTER THE HAIR AND MAKEUP.

Chelsea Manning (the former Bradley Manning): A pox upon her.

Harvard University: A pox upon this anti-white, Deep State institution.

The Deep State: A pox upon the un-American (((neocon))) warmongers.

There are no good guys in this story. Chelsea Manning comes the closest to being good because when she was a he, he leaked information to Wikileaks that exposed the Deep State’s lies and treason.

The dean of Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government said the college was withdrawing its invitation for Chelsea Manning to be a visiting fellow and apologized for extending the offer, which prompted a former CIA director and the current one to distance themselves from the university.

Former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell earlier Thursday announced his resignation as a senior fellow at Harvard over its hiring of Manning. Mike Pompeo, the agency’s current director, also canceled a speaking engagement there Thursday night.

“I now think that designating Chelsea Manning as a visiting fellow was a mistake, for which I accept responsibility,” Kennedy School Dean Douglas W. Elmendorf said in a statement posted on the university’s website early Friday. “I still think that having her speak in the Forum and talk with students is consistent with our longstanding approach, which puts great emphasis on the value of hearing from a diverse collection of people.

“But I see more clearly now that many people view a Visiting Fellow title as an honorific, so we should weigh that consideration when offering invitations,” Elmendorf added.

Morell said in a letter to Elmendorf that he cannot associate himself with an organization “that honors a convicted felon and leaker of classified information.”

“Ms. Manning was found guilty of 17 serious crimes, including six counts of espionage, for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents to Wikileaks, an entity that CIA Director Mike Pompeo says operates like an adversarial foreign intelligence service,” Morell wrote.

Pompeo said in a separate letter to Harvard on Thursday that he backed Morell’s decision, adding that he was withdrawing from a Harvard public forum later Thursday night.

“While I have served my country as a soldier in the United States Army and will continue to defend Ms. Manning’s right to offer a defense of why she chose this path, I believe it is shameful for Harvard to place its stamp of approval upon her treasonous actions,” Pompeo wrote.

Like Pompeo, Morell stressed that he didn’t take issue with Manning’s gender identity.

“But it is my right, indeed my duty, to argue that the School’s decision is wholly inappropriate and to protest it by resigning from the Kennedy School,” he wrote.

Elmendorf disputed the notion that Harvard’s selection of the visiting fellows were endorsements of their views or actions. But he said it was clear others view the positions that way.

Manning, a former Army intelligence analyst, was convicted of leaking a trove of military intelligence records and spent seven years in prison before President Barack Obama commuted her sentence in January.

She is appealing her conviction. Manning’s lawyer handling the appeal, Nancy Hollander, disputed Morell’s claims that Manning’s leak put the nation in danger.

Even if you believe that Bradley Manning caused some harm to the United States, his actions are a trifle compared to the harm done by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and so forth.

Although I have no interest in hearing him/her speak, others may find value in his words. The fact that the Deep State is trying to silence him puts me on his side.

Conspiracy or Accident? CIA Files on Oswald Missing from JFK Documents

There must be 100 different theories about who killed JFK. That works to the advantage of the real killers, whoever they may be.

Whatever the truth is, the evidence shows that the Deep State has long done its best to keep the public in the dark by promoting the lone nut gunman theory.

Alternet via Salon

All of the U.S. government’s files on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy are supposed to be released by October 26. But one batch of CIA records on suspected assassin Lee Harvey Oswald has gone missing.

The records were part of a seven-volume file on Oswald held by the agency’s Office of Security. The OS is responsible for protecting CIA property and vetting agency personnel, and maintains a file system independent of the CIA’s Central File Registry. Declassified CIA records show that Volume 5 of the file records existed as recently as 1978.

The disappearance of the records, discovered by JFK researcher Malcolm Blunt, is significant because the Office of Security was the first component of the CIA to open a file on Oswald, an ex-Marine who defected to the Soviet Union in October 1959 and was later charged with killing JFK in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963.

The official story that Oswald acted alone is widely disbelieved. President Lyndon Johnson, First Lady Jackie Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, French president Charles DeGaulle, and Cuban leader Fidel Castro all privately concluded that JFK was killed by his political enemies, not by a lone assassin.

As a result, conspiracy theories have proliferated over the years, including President Trump’s bogus claim that Ted Cruz’s father was involved.

New JFK files

The disappearing Oswald file is the latest in a series of remarkable revelations that news organizations have found in long-secret JFK assassination files made public for the first time by the National Archives in July.

WhoWhatWhy reported on documents showing that the mayor of Dallas at the time of JFK’s assassination, Earle Cabell, was a CIA asset in the 1950s. His brother, Charles Cabell, was a high-ranking CIA official until 1962.

While the documents don’t show that Earle or Charles Cabell had any connection to JFK’s assassination, they do illuminate that the CIA’s extraordinary penetration of domestic American institutions extended to the city where JFK was killed. If anyone had said over the last 50 years that the mayor of Dallas in 1963 was a CIA asset, they would been derided as a conspiracy theorist. Now we know for a fact that he was.

Ian Shapira of the Washington Post plumbed the new records to recount the secret interrogation of Yuri Nosenko, a KGB intelligence officer who defected to the United States in 1964. Nosenko was detained without charges for four years in what would now be called a CIA black site.

The Nosenko affair (celebrated by HBO) was a key chapter in the CIA’s reaction to JFK’s assassination. James Angleton, the powerful chief of counterintelligence, suspected Nosenko had been dispatched by the KGB to conceal the Soviet ties to Oswald and the assassination. The interrogation of the “foul traitor” Nosenko failed to confirm Angleton’s conspiracy theory, according to the Post.

Writing for Politico, professor Larry Sabato and journalist Philip Shenon reported that one new CIA file showed that in the mid-1970s, one of Angleton’s top lieutenants came to doubt the Warren Commission’s finding that JFK was killed by Oswald, alone and unaided. Sabato and Shenon argue that the JFK investigation was “botched” and the possibility of a Cuban government involvement was ignored.

On AlterNet, I quoted extensively from the same records to show that the JFK investigation was not so much botched as “controlled’ by top CIA officials, including Angleton. The CIA made at least four false statements to investigators. The effect of these statements was to conceal what top CIA officers, including Angleton, knew of Oswald while JFK was still alive.

Collectively, the new JFK files pour more cold water on the “KGB did it” conspiracy theory, while encouraging questions about the “Castro done it” theory. Mostly, the new files illuminate how the CIA resisted investigation of Oswald after JFK was killed, and why the public, and CIA officials themselves, came to reject the official story of a lone gunman.

Officials of the National Archives have told AlterNet they will release thousands of pages of additional secret JFK records before October 26.

Paul Craig Roberts: Behold a Pale Horse, and its Rider is Death

We the people elected Donald Trump over warmonger Hillary Clinton in order to destroy ISIS and then pursue peace around the world.

Trump has apparently been co-opted by the (((Deep State))) into doing Israel’s bidding. Or, if you read yesterday’s post, he’s being drugged by forces within the White House.

There’s a very real danger that the Jewish neocons in charge of American foreign policy will deliberately lead us into a nuclear World War III that will destroy the world.

It’s puzzling that both China and Russia are kowtowing to America. Dr. Roberts wonders whether that’s out of fear or whether the two superpowers are planning something big while lulling America to sleep while apparently cooperating with Washington.

Condensed from Paul Craig Roberts

Two of America’s most populous states, Texas and Florida, are in hurricane ruins, and Washington is fomenting more wars.

The US national debt is now over $20 trillion, and Washington is fomenting more wars.

The entire world is helping Washington foment wars—including two targeted countries themselves—Russia and China—both of which are helping Washington foment more wars. Believe it or not, both Russia and China voted with Washington on the UN Security Council to impose more and harsher sanctions on North Korea, a country guilty of nothing but a desire to have the means to protect itself from the US and not become yet another Washington victim like Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, Syria, Serbia, and Ukraine overthrown in a US coup and now poverty-stricken.

I once thought that Russia and China were checks on Washington’s unilateralism, but apparently not. Both governments have been knuckled under by Washington and both voted to punish North Korea for striving to be sufficiently armed to protect its sovereignty from Washington.

Russia knows that it is surrounded by US nuclear and military bases. So does China. The question is: have Russia and China capitulated out of fear? Or is their cooperation with Washington a ruse while they prepare their own strike on Washington, or are the two misguided governments trying to cooperate with Washington a la sanctions so as to avoid having to confront a US military attack on North Korea?

It requires much competence to confront evil, and there is probably more evil in Washington than there is competence in Russia and China, two countries interested in being rich to an extent that it might cost them their sovereignty and existence.

When you see such potentially powerful countries as Russia and China collapse under Washington’s pressure in the UN Security Council, it makes you wonder if the various analyses of Washington’s many weaknesses are real, and if they are real, if Russia and China are aware of them.

How does one go about explaining why two countries, whose sovereignty is in the way of Washington’s world hegemony, help their known enemy bully yet another small country, especially one in their orbit of influence? How can Russia complain of sanctions against Russia based on nothing but Washington’s propaganda when Russia supports sanctions against North Korea based on Washington’s propaganda?

Russia and China are working hand-in-hand with Washington toward their own demise.

It is becoming biblical. Washington the anti-Christ is subverting all good on earth.

Behold, a Pale Horse, and its Rider is Washington.

During his campaign, Trump promised friendship with Russia and peace with the world. We have to hold his feet to the fire to see to it that the Generals he so admires (McMaster and Kelly) aren’t the only voices he hears.

Infowars: Trump Being Drugged by Deep State Ahead of Coup

President Trump is in grave danger according to Alex Jones.

The (((Deep State))) is using drugs to slowly destroy the president’s mind. The plan includes calling his mental deterioration Alzheimer’s Disease.

Does what Jones is claiming make sense? It does to me. So, how do we get word to the President about the plot to overthrow his presidency? Or do we try to get the word to Melania and the Trump children and push them to protect him?

The Deep State killed JFK, tried to kill Reagan, and killed thousands on 9/11. Assassinating Trump would be too obvious. But the intrigue keeps on keeping on.

Infowars

Deep state operatives are putting sedatives in President Trump’s food and drink to make him more pliable and disoriented, according to multiple White House sources.

Insiders close to Trump noticed his slurred speech and sleepiness over the past several months, which are strikingly similar to changes observed in former Presidents John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan, both of whom were sedated.

Prior to the presidency, Trump was known for his energetic 18+ hour days in the high-stress world of real estate development – and his reportedly sudden shifts in behavior mesh perfectly – too perfectly – with the establishment media’s prediction that the president would soon suffer cognitive issues.

“The president does not drink, the president most certainly does not do drugs. The president is a sharp as a tack,” according to Trump insider Roger Stone, who talked to his own sources in addition to the sources who spoke to Infowars. “…I have now heard, not from one but two different sources, that he seemed disoriented and was slurring his speech in conversations.”

“To me this is a tip-off that he may be medicated. Is [Chief of Staff] Gen. Kelly above this? No.”

Consequently, Kelly pressured Trump’s decades-long bodyguard, Keith Schiller, to resign from the White House, a troubling development given Schiller’s personal dedication to the president’s well-being.

“With a loyalist like Schiller no longer standing next to the president, incapacitating him would be relatively easy,” Stone pointed out.

In this video Alex Jones makes the point that we should not be buying from the enemy, Jeff Bezos, using Amazon. Alex seems to be aware that white genocide is real.

For the past several months, the mainstream media has been pushing a narrative that Trump should face impeachment over “mental instability,” a media angle that was discussed in private meetings amongst anti-Trump reporters.

Similarly, the American Psychoanalytic Association is trying to do away with the long-standing Goldwater rule which stops psychologists from “diagnosing” public figures they have not examined in person, as Infowars reported on July 26.

“We don’t want to prohibit our members from using their knowledge responsibly… since Trump’s behavior is so different from anything we’ve seen before,” said Dr. Prudence Gourguechon, a psychiatrist in Chicago.

And in August, Democratic Representative Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) introduced a bill that would force the President to submit to a psychological evaluation.

Pope Francis Slams “stupid” Climate Change Deniers

The so-called Vicar of Christ might as well run for political office. He constantly interjects himself into political debates. More than that, this debate is also scientific, and science is an area in which Popes do not have any special expertise.

Bergoglio tells us that we should be worried about the extinction of the human species, using the terminology we “will go down.”

Well, guess what Mr. Pope, we’ll go down for sure if certain demographic trends aren’t reversed. Climate change is speculative. The African population explosion isn’t. Speak up about that, if you dare, my dear Pope. When you’re not kissing black feet.

Huffington Post

Climate change denials amid catastrophic hurricanes are a reminder that humans are not a particularly smart species, Pope Francis said Sunday while flying over areas in the Caribbean decimated by Hurricane Irma.

“Man is stupid,” he said, referencing a passage in the Old Testament, according to the The New York Times and The Associated Press. “When you don’t want to see, you don’t see.”

A correspondent for Crux Now had a slightly different translation of the pontiff’s comments: “Man is a stupid and hard-headed being who doesn’t see.”

The pope — who has sparred with President Donald Trump on several issues, including climate change — also urged the climate skeptics of the world to consult with a scientist.

“Those who deny climate change need to go to scientists and ask them,” Francis said, according to Crux. He said the scientific community has been “clear and precise” in linking human activities to the ongoing crisis and that “each [person] has a moral responsibility, bigger or smaller.” Climate change is a “serious matter over which we cannot make jokes,” he said.

Pope Francis’ comments came during a flight from Colombia to Rome, which passed over areas of the Caribbean left devastated by Hurricane Irma. According to Crux, journalists asked the pope about the moral responsibility world political leaders have to fight against climate change.

Francis warned that “history will judge those decisions,” and that if humans fail to curb climate change we “will go down,” according to reports.

When Trump met with Francis in May, the pope gave the president a copy of his 2015 encyclical on climate change and the environment, “Laudato Si.” In the 184-page document, Francis argues that climate change is inherently a moral and spiritual issue and criticizes local and national governments that refuse to address it.

Since taking office, Trump, a longtime climate change skeptic who has dismissed it as “bullshit” and a Chinese hoax, has worked swiftly to derail America’s actions to combat the threat. In June, Trump announced he will pull the U.S. out of the historic Paris Agreement on climate change, in which nearly 200 countries committed to slashing carbon emissions.

Climate scientists say powerful back-to-back hurricanes Harvey and Irma — which battered the Gulf Coast, the Caribbean and the U.S. Southeast over the last two weeks — were made worse by climate change. The Trump administration, however, has said now is not the time to discuss the role climate change played in the extreme weather events.

“To have any kind of focus on the cause and effect of the storm, versus helping people, or actually facing the effect of the storm, is misplaced,” Scott Pruitt, head of the Environmental Protection Agency, told CNN last week in an interview about Hurricane Irma.

The Pope would gladly see the West overrun by Africans, while bankrupting itself by spending to fight the global warming hoax.

He should spend more time praying and less time talking about things he knows little about.

Declassified CIA Documents: Hitler Was Living in Argentina in the 1950s

Whether you love Hitler or loath him, there’s a certain satisfaction that some of us feel from knowing that Hitler eluded the Nazi hunters. If he did make it out of Germany alive, I hope he took Eva Braun and some nice German Shepherd dogs with him to Argentina.

Lew Rockwell

Declassified CIA files show that in 1955, an informant boasted about meeting with Adolf Hitler in Colombia, and provided pictures of himself with the Fuhrer – over 10 years after the Fuhrer’s suicide.

Declassified files show that in 1955, the CIA’s Western Hemisphere Division (WHD) chief received a secret memo, boasting a subject line that no doubt caused him to jump up from his chair, and spew any liquid in his mouth across the room — “Operational: Adolf Hitler.”

As the shocking title implies, the acting station chief in Venezuela claimed to have received a once in a lifetime tip from one of his contacts — a decade after his apparent death by suicide in the Fuhrerbunker, Hitler was in fact very much alive, and living in Argentina.

Hitler Oder Nicht?

In brief, one of the action station chief’s informants, CIMELODY, was contacted by a trusted friend, former SS trooper Phillip Citroen, who claimed to have been in touch with Hitler — masquerading under the pseudonym Adolph Schuttlemayer — about once a month in Colombia, while there on a trip from Maracaibo as an employee of the Royal Dutch Shipping Company.

Citroen indicated to CIMELODY he had even taken a picture with the fallen Fuhrer, and a grainy snap is indeed included with the memo.

He also stated Hitler left Colombia for Argentina in around January 1955, and added that as ten years had passed since the end of World War II, the Allies could no longer prosecute Hitler as a criminal of war, suggesting erroneously the statute of limitations on war crimes are rather brief.

The message concluded that neither CIMELODY nor the CIA station itself was in a position to give an intelligent evaluation of the information included in the memo, but it was being forwarded “as of possible interest.”

The no doubt flabbergasted WHD chief followed up on the memo by reviewing the agency’s files, and found a year prior, there was indeed a report not only making the same claim regarding Hitler not being dead, but also suggesting there was a whole colony of Nazis in South America — again made by Citroen.

“Phillip Citroen told a former member of this base that while he was working for a railroad company in Colombia, he met an individual who strongly resembled and claimed to be Adolf Hitler. Citroen claimed to have met the indivdual at a place called ‘Residencias Coloniales’ in Tunja, Colombia, which is, according to the source, overly populated with former Nazis, following this alleged Adolf Hitler with an idolatry of the Nazi past, addressing him as ‘der Fuhrer’ and affording him the Nazi salute and storm-trooper adulation!” the memo said.

More Trouble Than It’s Worth

A few days later, the station chief wrote to the WHD chief again, asking if they wished to make further investigations into the potentially still-extant Hitler or not.

“If Headquarters desires, Bogota Station can make inquiry concerning ‘Adolph Schuttlemayer’ in Tonga, Colombia,” the memo said.

A week later, the WHD chief responded ambivalently.

While he had no objections to undertaking further investigations into the matter, he felt “enormous efforts could be expended on this matter” without the possibility of establishing anything concrete.

As a result, he suggested the matter be dropped.

“Collusion network” Facebook flaw leads to millions of fake “likes”

It’s entirely possible that Fakebook … er … Facebook was designed to allow criminal racketeering that puts shekels in the pocket of Mark Zuckerberg.

The press wants you to believe that fake Facebook accounts and fake likes are just accidents. I doubt it. Not when likes and accounts can be used to enrich the Zuck via advertising dollars and the sale of fake data to the suckers who fall for Zucks’ scams.

Excerpt from CBS News

Researchers say a security loophole has allowed at least a million Facebook accounts, both real and fake, to generate at least 100 million “likes” and comments as part of “a thriving ecosystem of large-scale reputation manipulation.”

The researchers, from the University of Iowa and Lahore University of Management Science in Pakistan, found dozens of sites that operate so-called collusion networks, which rapidly generate users’ likes for free.

Facebook posts that rapidly receive a lot of likes are more likely to be placed higher in other people’s feeds, meaning users buoyed by fake likes can ultimately generate significantly more real attention and influence.

In order to participate, users have to grant the networks wide-ranging access to their accounts, so that those accounts can be harnessed to like others.

The networks exploit code known as OAuth, which allows third-party applications such as Spotify, iMovie and the Playstation Network to access users’ Facebook accounts from anywhere between a few hours to even months at a time.

Researchers warn the exploit can be used for darker purposes than just gathering extra likes.

“In addition to reputation manipulation, attackers can launch other serious attacks using leaked access tokens. For example, attackers can steal personal information of collusion network members as well as exploit their social graph to propagate malware,” they write in their forthcoming paper.

In an interview with CBS News, the researchers said they tracked the collusion networks in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, but couldn’t say whether the networks were used to boost posts to benefit or hurt candidates. They said their research was just scratching the surface.

“We do want to examine the Russia question,” said co-author Zubair Shafiq, who added that while they only looked at the top 50 networks, many more exist. “These collusion networks are quite possibly involved in orders of magnitude much larger than what we observed.”

Facebook acknowledged Wednesday that hundreds of phony accounts that appear to have originated in Russia bought $100,000 in advertisements during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign and in the months following the election. It is not clear if the ads, or other false stories shared during the election, were boosted through influence networks.

The researchers revealed their findings to Facebook in May 2016, ultimately working with Facebook to implement countermeasures to combat the networks.

Facebook said in a statement to CBS News that the collusion networks have now been blocked.
