European Central Bank’s view of the Group of Thirty, in its own words

“Each (Group of 30 international banking) seminar features presentations by highlevel representatives of the private and public sectors across the globe….It is clear from the above that the Group of Thirty is not a lobby or interest group that would aim to influence any decision-making process in such a way as to defend private interest. It is rather a forum for enlightened and forthright reflection and debate on issues of relevance for the economic and financial world”

Responsible Turkish journalists I’ve met with relate that Gulen-loyal police tied to Edrogan’s AKP have infiltrated the Turkish police, intelligence services and other key state institutions and are systematically arresting, purging or silencing all nationalist military, trade union and other secular figures opposed to creation of an Islamic Sharia state in Turkey, uprooting ninety or more years of Kemalist legal foundations. More than one hundred Turkish journalists have been arrested for writing critically about the actions of Gulen’s AKP….(Gulen and his operation-base are in Pennsylvania.)
Washington has used Turkey and the AKP fundamentalist networks of Gulen to wreak havoc across the post-communist oil and mineral-rich regions of Central Asia. (Former CIA agent) Graham Fuller’s footprints are all over those covert operations as are Fethullah Gulen’s. In 2008 Fuller published a book titled, The New Turkish Republic: Turkey as a Pivotal State in the Muslim World. As Sibel Edmonds describes, the process involved using Turkey with assistance from ‘actors from Pakistan, and Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia’ as a proxy, which in turn used Bin Laden and the Taliban and others as a proxy terrorist army before 911. …
What did Ruslan Tsarnaev, uncle of the Boston alleged bombers, do when he was married to Graham Fuller’s daughter? Ruslan worked for companies connected to Halliburton, doing oil deals in the Caucasus and as consultant for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) in the former Soviet Republic of Kazakhstan.

……………………………………………..

Graham E. Fuller received his BA and MA at Harvard University in Russian and Middle Eastern studies. He served 20 years as an operations officer in the CIA, working in Germany, Turkey, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, North Yemen, Afghanistan, and Hong Kong. In 1982 he was appointed the National Intelligence Officer for Near East and South Asia at CIA, and in 1986 Vice-Chairman of the National Intelligence Council at CIA, with overall responsibility for national level strategic forecasting.
…Also, and more curious still, is the work that Ruslan conducted as a “consultant for Financial Markets International LLC and Arthur Andersen LLP” as contracted by the United States Agency for International Development, or USAID, for “projects” in Central Asia.
USAID, in case it still needs pointing out, has long since been known as a “CIA front organization”–possibly one of the CIA’s worst-kept secrets.

……………………………………………………Erdoğan received Al-Qaeda’s banker in secret
1-6-14 It would seem that the funds pilfered by close relatives of the Turkish Prime Minister were being managed by one of his personal friends, Yasin al-Qadi, who made clandestine visits to him, despite his name being on the United Nations list of people wanted for terrorism. Each time, Mr. A-Qadi arrived by private jet at an Istanbul airport where all the security cameras had been shut down, and where he was illegally (covertly) picked up by the Prime Minister’s personal guards, without passing through customs.
Yasin al-Qadi is a Saudi banker, member of the Muslim Brotherhood, and a close friend of Ossama Bin Laden. He admitted to having been behind the funding of Bin Laden’s Arab Legion in Bosnia and Herzegovina (1991-1995) and to financing the terrorist attacks against the U.S. Embassies in Tanzania and Kenya (1998). http://www.voltairenet.org/article181671.html
……………………………………………………Qadi was “one of 12 Saudi businessmen suspected of funneling millions of dollars to al Qaeda and who had extensive business and financial ties in Chicago.”[73]
The head of the FBI’s Terror Finance Unit Wright later published the story of his frustrated investigation in a book titled Operation Vulgar Betrayal.

PLANNED INCOMPETENCE?
PART 1

 

 

By Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D.

In 1957, Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser wrote: “The genius of you Americans is that you never make clear-cut stupid mistakes, only complicated stupid ones, which makes us wonder at the possibility that there may be something we are missing.” What Nasser was close to asking was whether Americans (acting for the power elite) were operating with “planned incompetence.” “Planned incompetence” is when a nation or individual seems to act in a mistaken way that indicates it doesn’t know what it is doing, but it really does!

4-6-09 The Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) was established on May 23, 2008, with the headquarters to be in Ecuador, the South American Parliament to be in Bolivia, and the Bank of the South to be in Venezuela. As the BBC reported, “The leaders of 12 South American nations have formed a regional body aimed at boosting economic and political integration in the region,” and that, “The Unasur members are Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay and Venezuela.”[7]…
In 2005, the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), a regional trade bloc among Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), announced the goal of creating a single common currency by 2010. …
On March 16, 2009, Russia suggested that, “the G20 summit in London in April should start establishing a system of managing the process of globalization and consider the possibility of creating a supra-national reserve currency or a ‘super-reserve currency’.” Russia called for “the creation of a supra-national reserve currency that will be issued by international financial institutions,” and that, “It looks expedient to reconsider the role of the IMF in that process and also to determine the possibility and need for taking measures that would allow for the SDRs (Special Drawing Rights) to become a super-reserve currency recognized by the world community.”[40]

On March 23, 2009, it was reported that China’s central bank “proposed replacing the US dollar as the international reserve currency with a new global system controlled by the International Monetary Fund.” The goal would be for the world reserve currency that is “disconnected from individual nations and is able to remain stable in the long run, thus removing the inherent deficiencies caused by using credit-based national currencies.” http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-financial-new-world-order-towards-a-global-currency-and-world-government
…………………………………………..
The Muslim Brotherhood is a tool by the British-based Globalists whose main objective is to overthrow the established world order and create a new one-world system of global governance. Without the British, “radical Islam would have remained the illegitimate, repressive minority movement that it has always been, and the Middle East would have remained stable and prosperous.”
The real Muslim Brothers are…the secretive bankers and financiers who stand behind the curtain, the members of the old Arab, Turkish, or Persian families whose genealogy places them in the oligarchic elite, with smooth business and intelligence associations to the European black nobility and, especially, to the British oligarchy. https://socioecohistory.wordpress.com/2011/07/06/dr-dennis-cuddy-the-power-elite-and-the-muslim-brotherhood/

In March of 1995 Hassan al-Turabi convened a meeting in Khartoum with three of the leading Egyptian Islamists: Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri, the head of Egyptian Islamic Jihad, along with Mustafa Hamza and Rifai Ahmed Taha, both of al-Jamaah al-Islamiyah (the Islamic Group). Zawahiri was based in Geneva where his organization was directed from a Muslim Brotherhood mosque(p.125). Mustafa Hamza was based in London and Khartoum, while Rifai Ahmed Taha was based in London and Peshawar, Pakistan. It was at this meeting that the plan to assassinate President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt was agreed upon. The attack would be made during Mubarak’s scheduled diplomatic visit to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in late June. (4) p. 123

Weeks later the plan was presented at a larger Islamist meeting in Khartoum. It was thought that Mubarak’s assassination would create the diversion for an Islamist coup in Egypt, followed quickly by the fall of the House of Saud and the overthrow of the Persian Gulf states. Mustafa Hamza was chosen to coordinate the uprising within Egypt and Ayman al-Zawahiri was picked as the operational director of the actual attack on Mubarak. (5)

In late May Turabi traveled to Paris for “medical treatment,” from where he made a quick secret visit to Geneva to meet again with Zawahiri. Two weeks later Zawahiri made an “inspection visit” to Khartoum, and he was also able to travel to Ethiopia using a forged passport to go over the plan on the ground. He then returned to Geneva where the final meeting of the top-level operational leaders took place in safety on June 23.

2-20-12 Because George Soros is a member of the power elite it’s important to know what he says about the future. On January 29, 2004 he told an audience at his alma mater (London School of Economics) that it is necessary to “puncture the bubble of American supremacy.” And in his book, The Crash of 2008 and What it Means (2009), he explained: “So what does the end of an era really mean? I contend that it means the end of a long period of relative stability based on the United States as the dominant power and the dollar as the main international reserve currency. I foresee a period of political and financial instability hopefully to be followed by the emergence of a new world order.”

In an interview with the Financial Times (October 23, 2011), he said, “You need a new currency system…. You really need to bring China into the creation of a new world order, a financial world order…. China will be the engine driving [the world economy] forward and the U.S. will be actually a drag that’s being pulled along through a gradual decline in the value of the dollar.”

Then, according to John Arlidge’s article, “George Soros on the Coming U.S. Class War” (Newsweek, January 23, 2012), Soros believes “Europe is confronting a descent into chaos and conflict. In America he predicts riots on the streets that will lead to a brutal clampdown that will dramatically curtail civil liberties. The global economic system could even collapse altogether.” At the very least, members of the European Union are surrendering more of their national sovereignty, as on December 9, 2011 they agreed to allow the European Court of Justice to invalidate any member nation’s laws that did not provide for fiscal discipline. This is just one more step from monetary union to fiscal union….

We should remember that after Egypt’s 2005 elections, the MB’s Supreme Guide Mahda Akef revealed that “for us, democracy is like a pair of slippers that we wear until we reach the bathroom, and then we take them off” (see the Al-Dostour newspaper for February 24, 2011). http://www.newswithviews.com/Cuddy/dennis227.htm

9-26-03 Syria had to be “made to appear as the sponsor of plots, sabotage and violence directed against neighbouring governments,” the report says. “CIA and SIS should use their capabilities in both the psychological and action fields to augment tension.” That meant operations in Jordan, Iraq, and Lebanon, taking the form of “sabotage, national conspiracies and various strong-arm activities” to be blamed on Damascus.

The plan called for funding of a “Free Syria Committee”, and the arming of “political factions with paramilitary or other actionist capabilities” within Syria. The CIA and MI6 would instigate internal uprisings, for instance by the Druze in the south, help to free political prisoners held in the Mezze prison, and stir up the Muslim Brotherhood in Damascus….The plan was never used, chiefly because Syria’s Arab neighbours could not be persuaded to take action and an attack from Turkey alone was thought to be unacceptable. http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2003/sep/27/uk.syria1

American Capitalism Gone With a Whimper
It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American descent into Marxism is happening with breathtaking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite tv dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our “democracy”. Pride blindth the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.

The final collapse has come with the election of Barrack Obama/ His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?

These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more then a whimper to their masters. http://mat-rodina.blogspot.com/2009/04/american-capitalism-gone-with-whimper.html

leaks versus whistleblowing; stultification of man’s desires for progress

4-1-13     TAC: Can you draw a fine line for us between leaks and whistleblowing?

Tony Shaffer

 

: A simple term draws the line between leaking and whistleblowing, and that word is “intent.”

Leaks from the White House regarding the identity of SEAL Team Six as the unit that conducted the [bin Laden] raid; the leaked info on Pakistani, Doctor Afridi, who helped us confirm the location of Bin Laden; the leak of information on the British spy net in Yemen that detected and prevented another round of underwear bombings; and the leak to the New York Times of critical information regarding the drone program and the Stuxnet virus were all for political purposes–done to help establish the perception that this White House is strong on national security. These leaks are illegal.

Specific details—down to the floor plan of the bin Laden house—were leaked [to the producers of “Zero Dark Thirty”] for political purposes. The intent here was to achieve political gain, not protect the American people.

People like Thomas Drake are whistleblowers. There was clear intent on his part to draw attention to huge government waste and fraud by the National Security Agency and its leadership, to purchase new and unneeded technology that was redundant and far more expensive that the technology and techniques that already existed within the agency. The intent here was to do public good—to identify and stop illegal and wasteful activity.

The grand irony is that, of course, Mr. Drake was fired from NSA for his intent to do good. Those who did the big leaks—who, I am told, are members of the current White House National Security Counsel—continue to serve and leak information to the media with impunity.    http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/tony-shaffer-talks-leaks-coin-and-modern-war/

…joy is the progenitor of service. Those who can develop a surging sense of joy that blooms in the heart and flows out into the world–commingling with nature, trees, shrubs, skyey vistas, waving grass, flowers, spans of water and towering mountains–nedd nothing else than the magic carpet of the mind and spirit to feel a part of the world.
Each of the chohans has pondered the fact that the stultification of man’s desires for progress and harmony and of his longing for beauty occurs because of his lack of perspective and his unwillingness to admit that this lack exists. When new vision is vouchsafed to the mind and being the pillars of hope begin to rise and in rising they buoy up the entire nature. -Nada: Pearls of Wisdom 11:6

US-China technology transfers

China’s strategies (for tech transfer) range from setting up science parks for Chinese returnees to persuading foreign companies to open research centers in China, Hannas, Mulvenon and Puglisi said….
The Commission on the Theft of American Intellectual Property concluded in May that technology theft amounted to a loss of more than $300 billion a year, the equivalent of total annual United States exports to Asia. “Virtually every sector and technology is attacked,” the commission said.
“National industrial policy goals in China encourage IP theft, and an extraordinary number of Chinese in business and government entities are engaged in this practice,” said the report by the commission, which was led by Dennis C. Blair, a former director of national intelligence, and Jon M. Huntsman Jr., a former ambassador to China….
One, the Shanghai New High Technology Service Center, offers “one-stop shopping” for government and business customers. Another, the Shanghai National Technology Transfer Center, has about 7,500 employees spread across laboratories, research institutes and offices in the region who are engaged in the “conversion” of foreign technology, including in microelectronics, lasers and nuclear technology, the authors wrote.
………………………………………………………………..
8-2-10  A report released by The U.S. Chamber of Commerce said China was abusing the allure of its vast market to push foreign companies to transfer their latest technologies to Chinese competitors. This was a “blueprint for technology theft on a scale the world has never seen before,” it said. The report only adds to the strength of claims and concerns by foreign businesses and governments over Chinese policies and market restrictions….
“The belief by foreign companies that large financial investments, the sharing of expertise and significant technology transfers would lead to an ever-opening China market is being replaced by boardroom banter that win-win in China means China wins twice,” the report said.  http://economyincrisis.org/content/china-forcing-train-technology-transfer
…………………………………………………………………………..
 In July 2011, under mounting pressure from foreign companies, governments, and commercial interest groups like the American and European Union Chambers of Commerce, the policy of “forcing” foreign companies to transfer their IP to Chinese companies in order to bid for government contracts was officially abolished.
Regardless of such policy-mandated restrictions, Chinese companies face no shortage of sophisticated suitors. If one company is unwilling to share its technology, others will. This is evident in the numbers. According to the Chinese Ministry of Commerce, in 2011 the number of newly-approved foreign-funded enterprises in China was 27,712, and foreign investment increased 9.72 percent year-on-year to a little more than US$116 billion. For most large companies the risk of not getting into the Chinese market is bigger than the risk of sharing technology…. 
Another common criticism of China’s technology policies is that many of the transfers occur through corporate espionage. Despite international laws like the WTO’s “Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of International Property Rights (TRIPS),” which requires all members to meet a minimum level of IP protection and enforcement, technology is illegally transferred. However, most of the technology transferred to China by international companies moves through legal channels like joint ventures, patent licenses, and mergers and acquisitions.  http://www.china-briefing.com/news/2012/09/03/on-the-fast-track-technology-transfer-in-china.html

“People in the tech community are happy with what Hu Jintao committed to,” says John Neuffer, vice president of global policy at the Information Technology Industry Council, a trade group. “But like anything in China, it’s whether it’s implemented or not.”
“They are letting provincial authorities do their own thing,” adds an executive with a U.S. manufacturer. One province may accept his bid, he says, but another may reject it as not meeting China’s requirement that innovation be done in China—the technology-transfer imperative. “You have to fight it in every province. It’s like punching at a cloud.”    http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052748704547604576263060096988604

November 22, 2013     To China, the most important tech transfer has come from Russia – military defense technology, as evidenced by large Chinese orders for the Flankers and its derivatives, engines, and missiles. Russia is far ahead of the US and Europe in missile technology. The Sukhois are superior to the best fighters in US arsenal.

November 21, 2013    The West and US capitalists are to be blamed for China s’rise to world power position as of today .Therefore, the only way to weaken China political power is to weaken its economy clout by DRAMATICALLY REDUCING investment, technology transfer to China and diverting investment and technology transfer to India and Asean countries.
China economy can not afford further GDP slow growth to less than 7%
Russia can tolerate the West and US economical isolation in the short term only. It can not survive in long term if the West and US keep economic isolating for such longer term such as 20-30 years .
Deng’s famous quote about the color of the cat can be interpreted in the following way: In order for China to become a “superpower” it has to go through an economic and technological “Great Economic Leapfrog Forward”. Deng wanted technology transfer from the West. Russian communism wasn’t really helping the Chinese economy too much (except for some ballet lessons LOL) so China has to choose the other cat (and that Russian-hater Kissinger agreed). Well, in the ’90′s, many people in the West (especially CEO’s and Wall Street guys) are so naive (or perhaps they were just out-smarting themselves?) that they thought they can make a “quick dirty buck” out of the huge Chinese market and labor force, but look, who’s got all the cash now? China! That’s actually not even the main thing for China. What they really wanted was technology transfer and they got it big time (through offering cheap labor). Perhaps they would have gotten that by hook or by crook (industrial espionage) someday anyway, but the faulty economic and political decisions made in the West expedited those Chinese goals. China is a big and ambitious dragon and we will all have to wait and see what the economic, political and environmental effects will be, of this immense amount of cash and technology transfer for the rest of the world. After giving away valuable and fundamental know-how and technology for short term gains (for little optic-fibre-transmitted-high-frequency-nano-blips in the stock market), it is hard for the capitalists in the West to complain that the Chinese are now capable of cloning (or reverse-engineering as the Chinese would call it) any high-tech product, including weapons, from the West.  http://thediplomat.com/2013/11/russia-as-a-u-s-china-battleground-state-3/

Secret U.S. missile and electro-optics technology was transferred to China recently by Israel, prompting anger from the U.S. and causing a senior Israeli defense official to resign.
The head of defense exports for the Israeli Defense Ministry resigned after a U.S. investigation concluded that technology, including a miniature refrigeration system manufactured by Ricor and used for missiles and in electro-optic equipment, was sent to China, according to the Israeli newspaper Maariv.
Another Israeli news site, Aretz Sheva, reports the U.S. is concerned the technology could ultimately find its way to Iran, which last year sought to buy military equipment from China for its nuclear program.

how the Pentagon, CIA and State Department maintained intimate ties to al-Qaeda militants as late as 2001

5-17-13    In a recent  book Classified Woman Sibel Edmonds, a former translator for the FBI, describes how the Pentagon, CIA and State Department maintained intimate ties to al-Qaeda militants as late as 2001. Her memoir, Classified Woman: The Sibel Edmonds Story, published last year, charged senior government officials with negligence, corruption and collaboration with al Qaeda in illegal arms smuggling and drugs trafficking in Central Asia.
In interviews with this author in early March, Edmonds claimed that Ayman al-Zawahiri, current head of al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden’s deputy at the time, had innumerable, regular meetings at the U.S. embassy in Baku, Azerbaijan, with U.S. military and intelligence officials between 1997 and 2001, as part of an operation known as ‘Gladio B’. Al-Zawahiri, she charged, as well as various members of the bin Laden family and other mujahideen, were transported on NATO planes to various parts of Central Asia and the Balkans to participate in Pentagon-backed destabilisation operations….“In the late 1990s, all the way up to 9/11, al-Zawahiri and other mujahideen operatives were meeting regularly with senior U.S. officials in the U.S. embassy in Baku to plan the Pentagon’s Balkan operations with the mujahideen,” said Edmonds. “We had support for these operations from Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, but the U.S. oversaw and directed them. They were being run from a secret section of the Pentagon with its own office…
Five years ago, Edmonds revealed to the Sunday Times that an unidentified senior U.S. State Department official was on the payroll of Turkish agents in Washington, passing on nuclear and military secrets. “He was aiding foreign operatives against U.S. interests by passing them highly classified information, not only from the State Department but also from the Pentagon, in exchange for money, position and political objectives”, Edmonds told the paper. She reported coming across this information when listening to suppressed phone calls recorded by FBI surveillance, marked by her colleague Melek Can Dickerson as “not pertinent”.
In the Sunday Times exposé, Edmonds described a parallel organisation in Israel cooperating with the Turks on illegal weapons sales and technology transfers. Between them, Israel and Turkey operated a range of front companies incorporated in the U.S. with active “moles in sensitive military and nuclear institutions”, supported by U.S. officials, in order to sell secrets to the highest bidder. One of the  buyers was Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) – which often used its Turkish allies, according to the Times, “as a conduit… because they were less likely to attract suspicion.”…
“You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game” explained Gladio operative Vincenzo Vinciguerra during his  trial in 1984. “The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people… to turn to the State to ask for greater security.”
While the reality of Gladio’s existence in Europe is a matter of historical record, Edmonds contended the same strategy was adopted by the Pentagon in the 1990s in a new theatre of operations, namely, Asia. “Instead of using neo-Nazis, they used mujahideen working under various bin Ladens, as well as al-Zawahiri”, she said….
“This is why”, Edmonds continued in her interview, “even though the FBI routinely monitored the communications of the diplomatic arms of all countries, only four countries were exempt from this protocol – the UK, Turkey, Azerbaijan, and Belgium – the seat of NATO. No other country – not even allies like Israel or Saudi Arabia, were exempt. This is because these four countries were integral to the Pentagon’s so-called Gladio B operations.”…
It is no coincidence then that the opium trade, Edmonds told this author, has grown rapidly under the tutelage of NATO in Afghanistan: “I know for a fact that NATO planes routinely shipped heroin to Belgium, where they then made their way into Europe and to the UK. They also shipped heroin to distribution centres in Chicago and New Jersey. FBI counterintelligence and DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) operations had acquired evidence of this drug trafficking in its surveillance of a wide range of targets, including senior officials in the Pentagon, CIA and State Department. As part of this surveillance, the role of the Dickersons – with the support of these senior U.S. officials – in facilitating drug-trafficking, came up. It was clear from this evidence that the whole funnel of drugs, money and terror in Central Asia was directed by these officials.”

11-1-09 GIRALDI: Grossman had just become undersecretary, third in the State hierarchy behind Armitage. You’ve previouly alluded to efforts by Grossman, as well as high-ranking officials at the Pentagon, to place Ph.D. students. Can you describe that in more detail?

EDMONDS: The seeding operation started before Marc Grossman arrived at the State Department. The Turkish agents had a network of Turkish professors in various universities with access to government information. Their top source was a Turkish-born professor of nuclear physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was useful because MIT would place a bunch of Ph.D. or graduate-level students in various nuclear facilities like Sandia or Los Alamos, and some of them were able to work for the Air Force. He would provide the list of Ph.D. students who should get these positions. In some cases, the Turkish military attaché would ask that certain students be placed in important positions. And they were not necessarily all Turkish, but the ones they selected had struck deals with the Turkish agents to provide information in return for money. If for some reason they had difficulty getting a secuity clearance, Grossman would ensure that the State Department would arrange to clear them. In exchange for the information that these students would provide, they would be paid $4,000 or $5,000. And the information that was sold to the two Saudis in Detroit went for something like $350,000 or $400,000….
There were bin Ladens, with the help of Pakistanis or Saudis, under our management. Marc Grossman was leading it, 100 percent, bringing people from East Turkestan into Kyrgyzstan, from Kyrgyzstan to Azerbaijan, from Azerbaijan some of them were being channeled to Chechnya, some of them were being channeled to Bosnia. From Turkey, they were putting all these bin Ladens on NATO planes. People and weapons went one way, drugs came back.

GIRALDI: Was the U.S. government aware of this circular deal?

EDMONDS: 100 percent. A lot of the drugs were going to Belgium with NATO planes. After that, they went to the UK, and a lot came to the U.S. via military planes to distribution centers in Chicago and Paterson, New Jersey. Turkish diplomats who would never be searched were coming with suitcases of heroin.

How China Is Behind the Nuclear Program of Iran—and Every Other Rogue State

1-3-14    During all three detonations, Iranian representatives, including the mysterious Mohsen Fakhrizadeh—thought to be Iran’s chief nuclear scientist—were present. Tehran has been funding the North Korean nuclear program for perhaps as long as a decade, which means the Islamic Republic is already a nuclear state, at least as a practical matter. The close cooperation across national boundaries means nuclear weapons programs need not be just national in scope. We tend to think of China, Pakistan, North Korea, and Iran as having four parallel efforts, but in truth it’s better thought of as one program conducted in various locations.  http://www.tabletmag.com/jewish-news-and-politics/157678/china-iran-nuclear-allies

solar eclipse-full fixed cross of 8-11-1999

for Palo Alto, CA the ascendant for this very rare solar eclipse-full fixed cross is 22 degrees Cancer, while 6.5 degrees Aries is at zenith.

So one meaning is the great advancing computer age.  Another meaning is that Vladimir Putin became acting prime minister of Russia very near this time at Moscow:  2 degrees Sagittarius ascendant, 3 degrees Libra at zenith.

It is totally upon your freewill what will be the determination of this age….the miracle of hard work, of application of the law and of the science of initiation….

The increments of the will are the all-determining factors of who you will become, whether or not you will succeed in the material or the spiritual universe.  Increments of will determine whether you wil live or you will not live in the consciousness of God.    -Morya:  4-16-1976 at Los Angeles via Messenger E C Prophet
