This rises to the level of Treason. Business entanglements, emoluments, determine Trump’s national security agenda.

Look Who’s Not in Trump’s Travel Ban

Four countries are noticeably missing from that list: Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates. They’re located in the same region as the countries subject to the ban and they’re home to large Muslim populations. They also have something else in common: They all do business with Trump.

 

These articles attract brain-dead Trumpistas. You have to simplify the glaringly obvious for them. As Bloomberg actually does…

 

If the president was as dedicated to national security as he suggests, it would be logical for his list of banned countries to look a little different. After all, 15 of the 19 hijackers involved in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, were from Saudi Arabia. Two of them were from the U.A.E., and one was from Egypt. More recent attacks in the U.S. haven’t involved immigrants from any of the countries on Trump’s list.

 

They don’t know or care what emoluments are. So you have to educate them on that too, if they were capable of education…

 

If the House of Representatives flips this November, all bets are off.

Trumptards fuck off, you anti-American fascist thugs.

501 Days in Swampland

More than at any time in history, the president of the United States is actively using the power and prestige of his office to line his own pockets: landing loans for his businesses, steering wealthy buyers to his condos, securing cheap foreign labor for his resorts, preserving federal subsidies for his housing projects, easing regulations on his golf courses, licensing his name to overseas projects, even peddling coffee mugs and shot glasses bearing the presidential seal. For Trump, whose business revolves around the marketability of his name, there has proved to be no public policy too big, and no private opportunity too crass, to exploit for personal profit.

NSA-INNOCENT-USERS

 

Expanding surveillance of everyone gets some much needed scrutiny at the Washington Post and Daily News. Yes they are a rogue agency operating completely outside the Constitution. So when is someone going to do something about it?

The Citizens Committee on Benghazi released its interim findings on April 22, 2014 in Washington. Pictured are (L-R) Clare Lopez, Admiral (Ret.) Chuck Kubic, Admiral (Ret.) James ‘Ace’ Lyons, former CIA officer Wayne Simmons and civil rights attorney John Clarke

 

‘The White House and senior Congressional members,’ the group wrote in an interim report released Tuesday, ‘deliberately and knowingly pursued a policy that provided material support to terrorist organizations in order to topple a ruler [Muammar Gaddafi] who had been working closely with the West actively to suppress al-Qaeda.’

‘Some look at it as treason,’ said Wayne Simmons, a former CIA officer who participated in the commission’s research.”

US govt struck deal with Mexican drug cartel in exchange for info – report

 

Between 2000 and 2012, the US government had a deal with Mexican drug cartel Sinaloa that allowed the group to smuggle billion of dollars of drugs in return for information on its rival cartels, according to court documents published by El Universal.

Written statements made by a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agent and a US Department of Justice official in US District Court of Chicago following the 2009 arrest of Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla – son of a Sinaloa leader Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada and the organization’s alleged “logistics coordinator” – indicate that DEA agents met with top Sinaloa officials over 50 times beginning in 2000.

“The DEA agents met with members of the cartel in Mexico to obtain information about their rivals and simultaneously built a network of informants who sign drug cooperation agreements, subject to results, to enable them to obtain future benefits, including cancellation of charges in the US,” El Universal reported.

 

SYRIA-GAS-ATTACK

Pusned into exile at the London Review of Books (rather than the front page of the NY Times or Washington Post).

‘The [US intelligence] guys are throwing their hands in the air and saying, “How can we help this guy” – Obama – “when he and his cronies in the White House make up the intelligence as they go along?”’

Hersch dissects the evolving farce that is Obama’s “intelligence” on sarin in Syria.

“Already by late May, the senior intelligence consultant told me, the CIA had briefed the Obama administration on al-Nusra and its work with sarin, and had sent alarming reports that another Sunni fundamentalist group active in Syria, al-Qaida in Iraq (AQI), also understood the science of producing sarin. At the time, al-Nusra was operating in areas close to Damascus, including Eastern Ghouta. An intelligence document issued in mid-summer dealt extensively with Ziyaad Tariq Ahmed, a chemical weapons expert formerly of the Iraqi military, who was said to have moved into Syria and to be operating in Eastern Ghouta. The consultant told me that Tariq had been identified ‘as an al-Nusra guy with a track record of making mustard gas in Iraq and someone who is implicated in making and using sarin’. He is regarded as a high-profile target by the American military.”

“…it did confirm previous reports that al-Nusra had the ability to acquire and use sarin. A sample of the sarin that had been used was also recovered – with the help of an Israeli agent – but, according to the consultant, no further reporting about the sample showed up in cable traffic.”

“…They concluded that the [Syrian Jihadi] rebel forces were capable of attacking an American force with sarin because they were able to produce the lethal gas. The examination relied on signals and human intelligence, as well as the expressed intention and technical capability of the rebels.’

“…The CIA declined to comment for this article.”

Seymour Hersch relies almost exclusively on American sources to battle it out over this Syrian conflict.  Still, he is persona non grata today in American corporate/imperial media circles.  The story is disappeared and sent over to London.  Hersch makes the case that Obama is a liar, that the intelligence is being cooked.  The obvious implication is that we probably should impeach the bastards post haste, and you can’t say stuff like that on American airwaves.

I have also written on the Syrian rebels’ possession and use of nerve gas and the glaring falsehoods put out by the US regime…

Former large monitoring base of US intelligence organization NSA in Bad Aibling

But I thought it was just “metadata?”

Reuters:

“In another instance, a U.S. government-employed foreign woman suspected an NSA civilian employee, who was her lover, of listening to her phone calls. An investigation found the man abused NSA databases from 1998 to 2003 to snoop on nine phone numbers of foreign women and twice collected communications of an American.”

Reuters avoids the obvious, that the NSA commanders continue to lie openly about the capabilities of their clowns.  Why did an “NSA civilian employee” have this power in the first place?  Just like Edward Snowden, and Edward Snowden has revealed, this illegal system is operational and unconstitutional.
