These are the enemies of truth, justice, and humanity. Now Facebook is also partnering with these lying scum. Their McCarthy offensive against dissenters is a clear and present danger to freedom of speech and of the press in America.

Core Allegations Lacking in ‘Russiagate’

Conflicts of interest directly tied to anti-Syrian, anti-Russian propaganda complex The Atlantic Council. Eliot Higgins is a reptile there, and he’s been discredited for his false Sarin “case” against Syria, and false Ukraine propaganda to boot.

Comey displayed considerable discomfort on March 20, explaining to the House Intelligence Committee why the FBI did not insist on getting physical access to the Democratic National Committee’s computers in order to do its own proper forensics, but chose to rely on the examination done by the DNC’s private contractor, CrowdStrike. The firm itself has conflicts of interests in its links to the pro-NATO and anti-Russia think tank, the Atlantic Council, through Dmitri Alperovitch, who is an Atlantic Council senior fellow and the co-founder of CrowdStrike.



Indie war film takes on private contractors, atrocities, killing for corporations.  Looks like it could be something:




This post is not about the Hollywoodized version of government abuse, Enemy of the State.  There, the problem is limited to a handful of insiders who abuse their power.  Sorry.  Reality is much, much worse:

“God Bless America. Now they have EVERY major HVT in CONUS, the UK, Canada, Vegas, Los Angeles, NYC as clients.”
-Fred Burton of STRATFOR, via WIKILEAKS

Who are “they” and is God really appreciative?

“They” go by the handle ABRAXAS CORPORATION, and you can bet that I’m on their radar now simply for typing this and visiting their website.

“Abraxas has one focus – Risk Mitigation technology for the National Security community”

What about the rest of us?  What is our risk in empowering unaccountable privatized surveillance corporations connected to the “National Security community”–  who are not accountable to the public — or to oversight by anybody?

Abraxas, the god, has some creepy origination mumbo jumbo that might freak out some.  But Abraxas, the corporation, is what we should be concerned with here.  Ex-CIA and military surveillance experts have used that wonderful entrepreneurial spirit to track and surveil you, all at government expense.  They track, analyze, collate data about faces and license plate numbers at the “HVT” high value targets, according to them, which could essentially be… anywhere.  “High value” is in the eye of the beholder, after all, and  any landmark, building or park will suffice.

RT (Russia Today) has the story.  And the program is called “TrapWire.”

“The beauty of it is that we can protect an infinite number of facilities just as efficiently as we can one and we push information out to local law authorities automatically.”
-Richard “Hollis” Helms, founder of Abraxas Corp.



A malicious new hacking group called “AntiLeaks” is right now attacking WikiLieaks in an attempt to shut down this story.  Wonder who they trace back to?

For the insiders and “law enforcement” (sic?) out there on the net, you can actually visit the “TrapWire” website.  Here is the current version of that home page:

“TrapWire is a unique, predictive software system designed to detect patterns indicative of terrorist attacks or criminal operations. Utilizing a proprietary, rules-based engine, TrapWire detects, analyzes and alerts on suspicious events as they are collected over periods of time and across multiple locations. Through the systematic capture of these pre-attack indicators, terrorist or criminal surveillance and pre-attack planning operations can be identified — and appropriate law enforcement counter measures employed ahead of the attack. As such, our clients are provided with the ability to prevent the terrorist or criminal event, rather than simply mitigate damage or loss of life.

The TrapWire system includes a variety of features and components that are configured and delivered based on the specific needs of the customer organization and its end users. There are currently three different TrapWire systems available for public and private sector clients:
TW-CI (TrapWire Critical Infrastructure) focuses on the identification of pre-operational surveillance activities occurring around specific sites within the TrapWire Network
TW-CM (TrapWire Community Member) supports the online reporting of suspicious behavior by community members, such as the iWatch programs in Los Angeles and Washington DC, and See Something Say Something in Las Vegas and New York
TW-LE (TrapWire Law Enforcement) provides the ability to gather, analyze and disseminate information about surveillance and logistical activities occurring across an entire geographic region, including information gathered via TW CI and TW CM deployments”
