A friend forwarded this pic to me this morning.

I wonder where Agent Orange learned to purse his lips so dramatically? Could his frequent word salad be explained by too much youthful brain salad surgery (as the recipient)?

I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong time
I'd have said the right thing
But must have used the wrong line
I been on the right trip
But I must have used the wrong car
Head is in a bad place and I wonder what it's good for
I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong time
My head is in a bad place
But I'm having such a good time
I been running trying to get hung up in my mind
Really got to give myself a good talking to this time
Just need a little brain salad surgery
Got to que my insecurity ...

RIP Malcolm John Rebennack, aka Dr. John

https://www.msnbc.com/am-joy/watch/wolff-s-new-book-claims-mueller-s-office-drafted-trump-indictment-61588037994

In the Joy Reid interview with author Michael Wolff, Wolff claims to have documentation that Robert Mueller did have plans to indict Trump, contradicting the claim of Mueller's that he did not do so for reasons of the DOJ memorandum and that interpretation of the Constitution. Wolff goes on to quote prior thinking on such prosecutions consistent with: "Yes, we can".

Wolff offers his opinion of why Mueller took this different tack, and I suspect that there is something else afoot. As in: "like this is the script we're following".

Script? They discuss whether or not Mueller is a type of Hamlet or not.

The two go on to discuss Steve Bannon, and despite Bannon supposedly stating that Trump is a train wreck that there is a possibility that he'll be coming back to the WH. My telepathy informs me that Bannon will be producing the sequel to his Titus Andronicus, which will be titled Titus Dildonicus, Faux Evangelos Phallus Caput Lubricus.

'Dildonicus' being short for 'Dildonaldicus', fittingly so.
'Faux' for 'Fake' and 'Fox'.
'Evangelos' for 'News'
'Lubricus' for 'Tricky'
'Phallus' for 'Dick'
'Caput' for 'Head'

The theme music is, you guessed it: "In the Right Place". (See prior post)

A Republican advocacy group is calling for Republican lawmakers to break from Trump and be true to their long claimed values. As my highlighted text points to, it is claimed that their constituents will not put up with them doing so. But, Justin Amash's Michigan town hall proved otherwise, when he explained to him what he had found in reading the Mueller Report. They enthusiastically applauded him. One woman stated that prior to this she had not been aware that Trump had done anything wrong, and she watched ... Fox News constantly.

...
Chris Truax, a spokesperson for Republicans for the Rule Law, called the group’s new ad a “reminder of what patriotism and political bravery can look like.”
“Congressional Republicans are more than happy to admit in private that they are troubled, disappointed, and disturbed by President Trump’s abuses of executive power,” Truax said.
When none of their constituents can hear them, they speak frankly about their moral qualms and objections about their roles in undermining the original design of our Constitution. Their constituents — and all Americans — deserve to hear the same in public.”
Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) is the only Republican currently serving in Congress who has come out in favor of starting impeachment proceedings against Trump, based off the obstruction findings in the Mueller report.
He has said that other Republicans have privately raised concerns to him about Trump’s conduct. ...

As witnessed by Steve Bannon's various "spillings of the beans" (like in the prior post), dishing on Trump, his new movie, Titus Dildonicus, Faux Evangelos Phallus Caput Lubricus, will typologically detail the real life efforts of Tricky Dick Nixon and Roger Ailes to form a right wing news propaganda outlet, that became Fox News. This during the same general time frame that Tricky Dick was pumping up a young demi-stud, Titus Dildonaldicus, to aspire to the presidency. The movie goes on to explain how the republic's senators and representatives have been made to go down ... errr stand-down and take it all in.

Needless to say, names will be cryptic and the chronological period shifted to protect the guilty.

I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong time

While Agent Orange has just admitted that he would take political opposition data, a legal thing of value, from foreign sources and conditionally not inform the appropriate authorities, and that he will not fire Kellyanne Conway for repeatedly violating the 1930's Hatch Act, his company has just sold another real estate property. This time to a foreign business partner and politician, for an amount almost twice the appraised value. The sale was never listed on the market, so there was no competition from other bidders.

What kind of benefit does such a purchaser get from Agent Orange?


President Trump’s company has quietly sold one of his last remaining properties in California — a 5,400-square-foot Beverly Hills mansion that county records show was purchased by a corporate entity linked to an Indonesian billionaire and Trump business partner.
A deed registered with L.A. County on May 31 shows that Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., signed the property over to Hillcrest Asia Ltd., a company registered in the British Virgin Islands. The price tag: $13.5 million, nearly double what Trump paid for the house when he bought it in 2007.
The purchaser address listed on the deed is a Beverly Hills condominium owned by a firm belonging to Hary Tanoesoedibjo, a billionaire media executive who ran for vice president of Indonesia in 2014.
He is Trump’s business partner on two projects in Indonesia — a resort on the island of Bali and a golf course and resort in the forests of West Java, south of the capital city of Jakarta. Tanoesoedibjo has said he expects that the projects will be worth more than $500 million when completed. ...

Agent Orange's Secretary of Transportation was just shamed into selling her stock in the USA's largest producer of construction aggregates used in road construction. She has tried to benefit her father's shipping company, and she has arranged it so that her husband, Senator Mitch McConnell could get $78 million in federal pork for McConnell political strongholds in Kentucky:

...
“Well, let’s put it this way: I only have her ear an hour when I go to visit her once a year,” he added of Chao and Inman, a longtime Bluegrass State operative who had worked as McConnell’s advance man. “With a local guy, he has her ear 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You tell me.”
The circumstances surrounding the Owensboro grant and another, more lucrative grant to Boone County, highlight the ethical conflicts in having a powerful Cabinet secretary married to the Senate’s leader and in a position to help him politically. McConnell has long touted his ability to bring federal resources to his state, which his wife is now in a position to assist.
Chao’s designation of Inman as a special intermediary for Kentucky — a privilege other states did not enjoy — gave a special advantage to projects favored by her husband, which could in turn benefit his political interests. In such situations, ethicists say, each member of a couple benefits personally from the success of the other.
“Where a Cabinet secretary is doing things that are going to help her husband get reelected, that starts to rise to the level of feeling more like corruption to the average American. … I do think there are people who will see that as sort of ‘swamp behavior,’” said John Hudak, a Brookings Institution scholar who has studied political influence in federal grant-making. ...

The following excerpted article discusses that $3 trillion have been sidelined from the equities markets due to the chaos that Agent Orange has created. Beyond that some of this money might indeed come flooding back in stampeded by yet another whim of Agent Orange, just how many of these trades have been more profitable to smart and/or insider money than to the average 401K investor? How many of these people are those that made out with the Trump tax cut?

According to the article, the $3 trillion is 100 times the amount raised by the tariffs.

...
Hang in there, says our call of the day, from J.P. Morgan’s global head of quantitative and derivatives strategy, Marko Kolanovic, who says we could get a bigger bounce from all the damage trade-war tensions have wrought on stocks.
“The U.S. economy is facing a quite unique situation in which one individual can disrupt global trade and investment plans of U.S. corporations, tax consumers on a broad range of imports, etc.,” says Kolanovic, we guess talking about President No. 45. ...

So JP Morgan says to buy stocks, because there's money on the sidelines, eh?

Surprise, surprise! JP Morgan is always trying to get people to buy stock. Or, to sell stock. For every buyer, there's a seller, and JP Morgan makes money on the trade.

But, "money on the sidelines" is an especially lame reason. The amount of money "on the sidelines" is a fixed quantity, aka the "money supply", established by Federal Reserve banking policy. Money is neither created nor destroyed by stock trading.

When someone buys stock, the money goes from the buyer's account to the seller's account. It's still (always) on the sidelines.

Yes, Jerry, I know that no money was 'destroyed'.

If you do the math, however, multiplying the differential valuations of the number of stocks times their respective valuations, this is the 'value' that has been sidelined from the market. My question, therefore, is in whose pockets did the bulk of the 'sidelined' money end up in? Is it proportional to the demographics or not? Did Trump's Mar-a-Lago friends find a good time to take profits, waiting for an opportune time to buy back in? How about others, not so connected to Tump's policy machinations, but who can trade with the speed of a high speed trading algorithm, like the Mercers.

Oops, I forgot, the Mercers are also connected to Trump.

I see what you're getting at now. Yes, the stock market is a rigged game. JP Morgan and other big banks and hedge funds are continually skimming off profits with high speed trading algorithms. They're also profiting on advance inside information about Trump tweets, Federal Reserve meetings, and other market-moving events. Money is being systematically siphoned from the accounts of pension funds, poorly managed mutual funds, and mom-and-pop investors, for the benefit of folks like the Mercers.

"J.P. Morgan’s global head of quantitative and derivatives strategy, Marko Kolanovic" is part of the scam. He's talking to the pension fund managers, mutual fund managers and individual investors that are the targets of the con, hoping to keep them excited about the game.

If you do the math, however, multiplying the differential valuations of the number of stocks times their respective valuations, this is the 'value' that has been sidelined from the market.
This isn't exactly true. Consider the extreme case of a sudden market collapse. During such events, liquidity disappears and there is basically no trading going on while quotes are plummeting. Thus, little or no money is changing hands, as the nominal 'value' of the stocks is disappearing.

That's true. We'd also have to examine the trading volumes and short positions during the recent collapses.

Every day the Trump chaos seems to accelerate. Despite Trump's self proclaimed great personal relationships with the leaders of Russia, China, and North Korea, tensions with all of them and more are expanding. Lately he has gone from saying "No Collusion" (with Russia) to saying that he definitely would collude ... with any nation. Of course, the whole matter is rather crazy given how much we've historically interfered in other countries elections, assassinations, etc.. Probably even good white nationalists are against that.

But now, with the oil tanker situation in the Gulf of Oman, it seems that our old reputation is catching up to us, or is this just part of the larger script? Our most esteemed allies are dubious about the US evidence pointing to Iran, and the individuals pushing this, as the excerpt below discusses.

And now we have a new Israeli 'real estate development' to worry about, Trump Heights.

...
But the uncertainty has persisted. Some is rooted in a suspicion of President Trump, who has made numerous misleading statements in the past. Some is focused on the national security adviser, John Bolton, who advocated the 2003 invasion of Iraq on the faulty assertion that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.
And some skepticism is aimed at Pompeo. In laying out a litany of Iran’s behavior in recent weeks, Pompeo said Tehran was behind a May 31 car bomb in Kabul as a U.S. convoy was passing, lightly injuring four U.S. service members and killing four Afghans. The Taliban claimed responsibility for that. But Pompeo said the Taliban claim should not be believed.
“We have confidence that Iran instigated this attack,” he said Sunday when asked about the discrepancy, adding, “I wouldn’t have said it if the intelligence community hadn’t become convinced that this was the case.”
Tensions between the United States and Iran have been deteriorating since early May, when the Trump administration stiffened its enforcement of oil sanctions in an attempt to drive Iran’s oil revenue to zero. ...

We're edging ever closer to July 4th, Trump Adoration Day, and Nancy Pelosi is still holding off ever increasing pressure to launch impeachment proceedings (or just renaming oversight hearings as preliminary 'impeachment hearings'), and the subpoena process is at a blithering snail's pace, despite the courts having shown a strong willingness to deliver lightning quick rulings on related matters. As discussed before, Pelosi's rationale is that because the Senate will not convict that this would be a disaster for the Democrats, and Trump would use this as a cudgel.

Similarly, Mike Flynn has taken new lawyers, and used this as a pretext to ask for an additional delay in sentencing. Is this related to July 4th?

Will Trump soon get a cudgel that trumps all domestic and allied resistance? Or will his house of cards come tumbling down?

With the mysterious sabotage of four oil tankers in the Persian Gulf last May, I wrote:

...what's going to happen to insurance rates for oil tankers in the Persian Gulf? Isn't it likely to be closed, just as effectively as if war were already under way?
Which turned out to be wrong. But, the question has come up again now that another two tankers have been damaged. Quoting an anonymous source said to be close to the Iranian government, Elijah Magnier says:

https://ejmagnier.com/2019/06/15/trump-offered-to-suspend-sanctions-while-negotiating-with-iran-khamenei-rejected-the-offer-more-attacks-expected/

Two tankers – Kokuka Courageous and Font Altair – were attacked in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday, putting at risk the supply of oil to the West and making oil tanker navigation in the Middle East very unsafe. “One more attack and insurance companies are expected to increase their fees. More attacks and no insurance company will agree to cover any oil tanker navigating in Gulf waters, putting Iran and other oil-exporters at the same level. Moreover, let us see what justifications Trump and Europe will offer their people when the price of oil becomes unaffordable”, said the source.

The US narrative about the Kokuka ship has collapsed because the ship's owner says it was hit by a flying object, not a limpet mine. The Japanese and German governments have all but accused that Trump and Pompeo are lying. Even the Washington Post article linked above, leading with Trump's "credibility issue", mentions that "Japanese shipping heads said the Kokuka Courageous was hit by a “flying object,” not a mine, as the US video suggested."

Perhaps thanks to steady work by 911 Truth advocates, more and more Americans are familiar with the concept of a "False Flag Attack". And one can only hope that this particular "false flag" is so ludicrously fouled-up that The Onion's take will go viral on social media.

However, Fox News accepted the official US account as good coin, calling for the US military to escort all tanker traffic through the Gulf. Major Democratic Party figures Adam Schiff and Pete Buttigieg also bought into the account, as did Saudi crown prince MBS, as noted in the Washington Post story.

So if Trump staged this as a false flag justification for war, what is he waiting for?

Southfront, similar to Elijah Magnier, thinks that the US does not want a full-blown war. And, they also note the insurance issue, and also that tanker owners in general do not want to send their tankers into war zones. However, they argue that the US benefits from a high degree of tension in the region.
  • The growing tensions in the Persian Gulf region allows the Trump administration to continue exploiting the “Iranian threat” to justify its internal and foreign policies. Inside the US, it will allow Washinton to increase spending on military-industrial complex even further. In terms of the foreign policy, the US got an additional justification to continue its hard-core anti-Iranian and pro-Israeli policy as well as to boost military and diplomatic presence in the Middle East.
  • The geoeconomic goal of this provocation is to create tensions in the Persian Gulf region and near it (the western part of Indian Ocean). The growing threat to maritime security would increase the coast of logistical costs for key oil consumers. DHT Holdings and Heidmar, two of the biggest oil tankers operators in the world, have suspended new bookings to the Middle East and the Persian Gulf. The oil price gew. Insurance rates for logistical operations in the region are also expected to grow. This situation directly impacts China, one of the key oil consumers, and European states with a large industrial potential, like Germany. The pressure on possible economic competitors through economic (tariffs and sanctions), military and diplomatic means are the consistent policy of the Trump administration. [JR: my emphasis.]
This is walking a tightrope. Trump might want high tensions and solid oil prices. But the Iranians say they want the Persian Gulf closed to all oil traffic, which would cut off about 30% of all oil export trade world-wide, and would probably trigger some sort of banking / derivatives crisis. Does Trump really want as big a crisis as that?

At any rate, if this recent event was a botched US false-flag attack, the Iranians are also fully capable of carrying out false-flag attacks. "Moon of Alabama" predicts:

This cat and mouse game will now continue and steadily gain pace. More tankers will get damaged or even sunk. Saudi refineries will start to explode. UAE harbors will experience difficulties. Iran will plausibly deny that it is involved in any of this. The U.S. will continue to blame Iran but will have no evidence to prove it.
Insurance for Middle East cargo will become very expensive. Consumer prices for oil products will increase and increase again. The collateral damage will be immense.
All this will gradually put more pressure on Trump. The U.S. will want to negotiate with Iran, but that will be rejected unless Trump rejoins the nuclear deal and lifts all his sanctions. He can not do that without losing face and his allies. By mid 2020 the maximum pressure campaign will reach its zenith. Oil prices will explode and the U.S. will fall into a recession. The world economy will tank and everyone will know who caused the underlying issue. Trump's reelection will come into doubt.

But perhaps there is no limit to the extent of fiasco that Trump is trying to create. What can you expect from a president that boasts about his meeting with the Prince of Whales?

Poppy Bush, as VP, made a trip to see OPEC where he asked them to raise oil prices. But his claimed official mission was supposedly to be to ask them to lower oil prices. His action benefited US domestic producers. I don't understand how he politically survived that, unless he had significant others backing his play.

Imagine if there are some rogue operators in the Revolutionary Guards. While Iran benefits from higher oil prices, I can't see how this benefits their oil exportation income.

I guess we can put the claim that he didn't really want to be President to bed. Of course, he never wanted to be President, he wants to be Dick-Tator:

420

Of course, he's really (supposedly) pissed off at the NYT, more recently, because they 'treasonously' ran the story that our intel agencies placed malware in Russia's power grid without telling him. This not telling of him was made possible by a near unanimous consent of both houses of Congress and Trump had no choice but to sign the bill.

All of this is so very bizarre. For one, what does it mean that even the Trumpublicans voted for this ability to bypass Trump's authority? Secondly, why would any intel agency leak this if they had really done this, beyond playing head games with the Russians? The Russians know all about such as Stuxnet and the Iranian centrifuges.

The New York Times story is mirrored here with no paywall:

https://www.arkansasonline.com/news/2019/jun/16/cyber-strategy-targets-russian-power-gr/?news

WSWS ran an article about the "cyber strategy" this morning, which made a couple of important points:

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2019/06/18/usru-j18.html

The response of the Trump administration to the publication of this report was revealing. No top US security official disputed the validity of the report, and both National Security Advisor John Bolton and National Security Agency Director Paul Nakasone indirectly confirmed it. This demonstrates that the report was not a journalistic “scoop,” but a semi-official warning to Russia by the Pentagon, using the New York Times as its press agent.
The media reaction to this seemingly blockbuster revelation was also instructive. There was virtually no follow-up in the press and little discussion on the Sunday television interview programs. It seems that the corporate media as a whole understood that the publication of the article on the front page of the New York Times had as its intended purpose getting the attention of the Kremlin, not the American people, and that any further attention to the story risked causing popular alarm. ...
There is one further aspect of the Times report worth noting. From a formal standpoint, the newspaper is carrying out exactly the journalistic activity for which Julian Assange now faces US demands for extradition and trial under the Espionage Act with a potential penalty of 175 years in prison: publishing information about closely held US national security secrets.
The difference, of course, is that Assange is an actual journalist, seeking information that the US government did not want to see made public, exposing US war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan and diplomatic conspiracies around the world. The New York Times, Sanger & Co. serve as glorified stenographers, publishing what the military-intelligence apparatus wants to make public, not what it wishes to conceal.
The source for the claim that Bolton, Nakasone and other officials indirectly confirmed the report, is the New York Times article itself. But, as far as I know, the only government official who has denied the report is Trump himself. Trump's first tweet about the report said it was "Fake News", and a followup tweet said:


Fascinating that he doesn't believe the sources exist at all. But even if they do, it's the NY Times that Trump says is guilty of treason.

According to the law, of course, the officials that released the information are guilty of treason, while the NYT reporters are just doing their stenography job. But in the hands of our new Supreme Court, it's possible that any journalist, anywhere in the world, who so much as quotes the NYT article, could be extradited to the US and thrown in the gulag, like Assange. And maybe that's why famous talking heads are avoiding this.

If indeed the entire story is made up of whole cloth, then there's nothing treasonous or even illegal about printing or quoting it. It's been established that lies and fake news are protected first amendment speech. But of course Trump knows exactly who the sources are.

I believe the report at the NYT contains some fake news, as follows:

(1) I don't believe there is any Russian hacking team that has access to the US electrical grid's computers. On the contrary, there's probably a Ukrainian Nazi hacking team that has been leaving traces pointing to fake Russian hackers. And now that this fake hacking has been detected, the US has been scrambling to install Unix systems with VPN connections and proper firewalls, to prevent further hacks.

(2) It's probably true that the US has been trying to hack power grids of nations all over the world. Considering that Windows-based computers are practically impossible to protect against unauthorized access if they're connected to the Internet, I imagine there's probably been some success. But again, security experts all over the world have undoubtedly been working overtime to close the security holes. Russia has been planning for some time to install a national firewall; see:

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/feb/12/great-firewall-fears-as-russia-plans-to-cut-itself-off-from-internet

Russia is planning to temporarily disconnect from the internet as part of what it says is an experiment to test its cyberdefence capabilities.
According to a report on the Russian news site RBC, the planned disconnection is intended to analyse the country’s preparedness for a draft law mandating a “sovereign” internet.
Under the draft law, all internal internet traffic would be carried within the country’s own networks. Any traffic that leaves Russia would be forced to go thorough registered exchange points, subject to regulation by the state communications regulator Roskomnadzor.
Ostensibly the goal of the legislation is to protect the Russian internet from the US, which has an offensive cybersecurity strategy and lists Russia as one of the major sources of hacking attacks. ...

(3) The Trump administration now has the option to subject the US to rolling blackouts which can be falsely blamed on Russian or even Iranian hacking teams, to garner public support for military operations.

Yes, as the WSWS pointed out the irony of the positions on Assange versus the NYT is interesting, it's also long, long been an open secret that the NYT and the WaPo have been the unofficial primary press organs of the US government. That's the apparent difference in effective treatment, while the two outlets have at least been labeled as treasonous by aspiring Dick-Tator Dildonaldicus Won.

As part of aspiring Dick-Tator Dildonaldicus Won's announcement of his 2020 fake (as in moot-minded) re-election campaign, he has announced the deportation process for millions of undocumented immigrants. In doing so, he violated norms not to announce such before the plans are being executed. As the excerted article discusses, this is in line with concerns over Trump's prior loose lips, and related to the recent NYT leak about the alleged American hacking of the Russian power grid.

President Donald Trump pledged Monday night to begin deporting millions of undocumented immigrants who have entered the U.S. illegally and offered uncharacteristic praise for Mexico's efforts to stem the tide of Central American migrants surging across the southern border.
"Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in," Trump wrote on Twitter.
"Mexico, using their strong immigration laws, is doing a very good job of stopping people … long before they get to our Southern Border. Guatemala is getting ready to sign a Safe-Third Agreement," the president continued. "The only ones who won't do anything are the Democrats in Congress. They must vote to get rid of the loopholes, and fix asylum! If so, Border Crisis will end quickly!"
Trump's tweet, which came one day before a planned rally in Orlando, Fla., to kick off Trump's re-election campaign, was a departure from ICE‘s normal practice of keeping enforcement operations closely held until they’ve been executed.
The president's ICE comment comes amid signs of rising concern within his administration about his ability to keep government secrets. One hour after the ICE tweet the president followed with another denying a June 15 New York Times report that Pentagon officials refrained from briefing him in detail on recent U.S. cyberattacks against Russia's power grid "for concern over his reaction — and the possibility that he might countermand it or discuss it with foreign officials, as he did in 2017 when he mentioned a sensitive operation in Syria to the Russian foreign minister." ...

The article mentions Trump's threats to further defund aid to the three countries where most of the Central American immigration is coming from. The more problems there, the more impetus there is to immigrate.

Trump is planning to ramp up this immigration issue for his campaign, as well as creating a Red Scare of Socialism. All this as Pelosi sits on her thumbs.

Here's yet one more reason to be suspicious of this new Iran narrative, and wider:

...
The Trump administration’s case against Iran has rested in part on the argument that it has supported al-Qaida. Announcing the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal in 2017, for example, Trump said that the country “supports terrorist proxies and militias,” including al-Qaida.
“Iran’s connection to al-Qaida is very real,” Pompeo told lawmakers in April. “They have hosted al-Qaida, they have permitted al-Qaida to transit their country. There is no doubt there is a connection between the Islamic Republican of Iran and al-Qaida. Period. Full stop.” ...

There have been stories of an alliance between Iran and al-Qaeda since before 9/11. Iran, of course, is predominantly Shia Islam to a huge extent, while al-Qaeda is a radical element of radical Sunni Wahhabi Islam, and founded and centered in Saudi Arabia, Iran's big Islamic enemy. Or so we're all supposed to think. Osama bin Ladin's Sunni 'construction' family is highly connected in Saudi Arabia (especially their religious/business ties to Mecca), and were good friends with the Bush family (see such as the Carlyle Corporation) in various ways. Poppy Bush, also had very close ties to the Aga Khans, the hereditary leaders of the Shia Ismaili / Nazari sect (who were famous during the Crusade era via their 'Assassins').

As I have discussed before, prior to 9/11, al-Qaeda collaborated with such as the CIA in Kosovo. Similarly, Osama's involvement began during the 1980's period of the CIA aided Afghanistani (Sunni) muhajadeen rebellion against the USSR and its puppet regime. The bin Ladin family construction firm not only does all the major construction projects in Mecca, but they built the US Air Force base in Saudi Arabia. It goes on and on, but including back to the Crusade era, when the Nazari Assassins were accused of 'collaborating' with the Knights Templar.

The sub rosa modus operandi is also exactly what I have been discussing in my commentary on From Cleopatra to Christ. In that case there was this group of crypto-royalists, the Nazarenes (the leaders being fake nationalists) engaged in a divide and conquer strategy with their fake enemies, the Imperial Romans and Hellenized Jews. Of course, the respective 'patriots', doing the fighting on the ground are either 'true believers' or cynical mercenaries.

"The more things change the more they stay the same". But you'd think they could be bothered to at least change their names, like we're supposed to do with our passwords.
