  • Big Dots — Do They Connect? Steele and Skripal Revisited

    The American Spectator ^ | June 28, 2018, 12:05 am | Diana West
    Just came across an intriguing theory about Sergei Skripal, the former Soviet/Russian military intelligence agent who spied for Britain, and, along with his daughter Yulia, was nearly killed this spring by a dose of the nerve agent Novichok in the town of Salisbury, England, where they live. In a March 21 interview on the John Batchelor Show, Gregory R. Copley, editor and publisher of Defense & Foreign Affairs, posited that Sergei Skripal is the unnamed Russian intelligence source in the Steele dossier. Copley further explained (or tried to explain) to Batchelor (who kept cutting him off): “The people who wished...

    audio 11:08 Fusion GPS was hired by Democrats in 2012 to do opposition research on Mitt Romney. Some of the work that received the most media attention was focused on investigating the marriage records of a large donor to the Romney presidential campaign, Frank VanderSloot.[2][3] Planned Parenthood[edit] In August 2015, Planned Parenthood retained Fusion GPS to defensively investigate the veracity of a series of undercover videos released by pro-life activists that they claim showed Planned Parenthood officials agreeing to sell fetal tissues obtained through abortions to medical researchers.[2] Fusion GPS hired video and transcription experts to analyze the videos and...

Turns out to be a basis for civil war. No compromise, no surrender. Here, we have two kings; One is Clinton and one is Trump. Civil wars are always existential and always welcomed. All about who will have and hold legitimacy: who owns virtue, (the civil religion), what is right and true. Also, when one group of brothers sees the other one as The...

    “…The Islamic State has become especially adept at turning various makes and models of cars into vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices (VBIEDs). Armor is fixed to large and small vehicles alike in order to make it more difficult for Iraqi and American forces to destroy them before they reach their target. The US has been able to take out dozens of VBIEDs before their drivers could complete their missions. But the video showcases some of the jihadists’ more successful bombings. In one instance, one VBIED is driven into a security checkpoint and then a second snakes its way through an apartment...

    Speaking recently with Deputy Assistant to the President Sebastian Gorka, I learned there is room to entertain the possibility that al-Badri, if located, may well fall into the hands of the US and its allies in the region, such as the Kurdish forces known as the YPG. “Do we want al-Badri alive?” I asked. “Unlike the Obama administration, we’re not going to second guess the theater commanders,” Gorka explained. “We’re not going to have the eight thousand mile screwdriver that literally was the last eight years. We will leave those decisions to how you effectively neutralize an HVT, a high...

    POTUS Obama throws out a gesture to his partisans by announcing the withdrawal of all US troops in Iraq by year's end. The Kurds will dig in and do fine. Baghdad is now under the boot of Tehran. POTUS aims to get the US troops out of Afghanistan also, but 2014 if he is still in office. The US exit from the Middle East creates the vacuum that Riyadh will battle Tehran to fill. Reports arrive that Maliki blocked a transitionary force, because he bows to the Tehran stooge Sadr. The battle lines in the ummah are drawn sharply. Tehran-Baghdad-Damascus-Beirut...

    Spoke Larry Johnson, No Quarter, to hear the scuttlebutt from Army circles around Ft. Bragg that the NATO meeting some 24 hours ago did not proceed to harmony. The NATO chief Rasmussen made remarks about some states being difficult and quickly, it is reported, the German and the French representatives left the meeting in annoyance. Soonafter, the Italian representative demand that either NATO support the coalition war-making or else the offer of the Italian airfields is withdrawn. Today, Turkey repeated this formula in its own fashion, declaring that NATO must take over the operation. Turkey also offered to mediate between...
