TWILIGHT ZONE IN BLACK AND WHITE

By Nancy O'Brien Simpson

Oh dear reader the United States continues to devolve into pure Twilight Zone.  The lastest is the recent assassination attempt on the life of Trump insider and loyalist, Roger Stone. Who is Roger Stone?  Let's put it this way who gets banned from CNN and MSNBC?   Roger Stone.  How can you get banned from two major networks?  

Wikipedia writes: 
During the 2016 election cycle, Stone was banned from appearing on CNN and MSNBC after making a series of offensive Twitter posts disparaging other television personalities. Stone specifically referred to a CNN commentator as an "Entitled Diva Bitch" and imagined her "killing herself", and called another CNN personality a "stupid negro" and a "fat negro". Washington Post media writerErik Wemple described Stone's tweets as "nasty" and "bigoted". In February 2016, CNN said that it would no longer invite Stone to appear on its network, and MSNBC followed suit, confirming in April 2016 that Stone had also been banned from that network."

Stone is veteran political operative.  He was born in 1952 and has been around politics since the time of Reagan.  Wiki is spot on with this description, "The New York Times has described Stone as a "renowned infighter" and a "seasoned practitioner of hard-edged politics". During the 2004 presidential campaign, CBS News described Stone as a "veteran Republican strategist". In 2008,Daily Beast described him as a "self-admitted hit man for the GOP".

Okay, so why was Roger Stone poisoned with Polonium 210?  In his own way Stone is a behind the scenes power broker.  He has the ear of Donald Trump. He gets things done.  Obama and his regime had been dropping leaks that Stone had knowledge and proof that Putin himself was meddling in US politics and ordering hacking.  (Can you even believe the Obama/CIA attacks on Russia?) Stone vehemently has denied this and said, in fact, just the opposite.  Stone insists he has proof Russia did NOT hack the DNC. 

A Congressional investigation is coming up and Stone thinks that was the reason for the attack on his life.  'I believe I was poisoned to stop me from exposing the Russian Hacking LIE b4 the Congressional Investigation,' Stone said on his Twitter account. 

Stone said on the Alex Jones Show, "I became extremely ill. This manifested itself in over 14 days of high fever, delirium, night sweats, I had lesions on my chest and my face... 'The general consensus is I was poisoned. I was poisoned with polonium or a substance that has the characteristics of polonium and this made me exceedingly ill..."

When asked on the show who did this to him, his answer was shocking.  He said that he did not think it was the Clintons, nor did he think it was the Russians. He said the Russians have no reason to want me silenced.  He continued that he thought it was the "Deep State" than wanted him taken out before the congressional hearings.  

On the same Alex Jones Show, Stone said, "I come back to the deep state, I come back to our own people. This is about stopping the Trump agenda.  I would blow the whistle on this whole Russian narrative that they just won't let go of..."

Remember Alexander Litvinenko, the Russian spy who was murdered in 2006 in England?  He was murdered by ingesting Polonium, a rare and highly radioactive chemical that was slipped in his tea. Polonium was suspected in the 2004 death of Palestinia leader Yasser Arafat.  It was found on his clothes and personal effects.  

The death of Litvinenko was followed by an intense inquiry that determined his death was likely ordered by Russia as Litninenko was allegedly a double agent

In light of all that has taken place recently with the CIA and their making Russia the straw man of the century, the boogy man in the back yard, it is not out of the question that Litvinenko was in fact killed by a British intelligence false flag attack to make Russia and Vladimir Putin look like nefarious entities of evil. 

Why is the United States making fools out of themselves by attacking Russia on a daily basis in such obviously fake news?  The answer is two fold.  One if they can somehow convince the public that Russia threw the election to Trump by hacking, they undermine Trump's presidency.  The CIA and the Deep State fear and hate Trump and to undermine him and make him seem a Russian agent is right up their alley.  

The United States spends about sixty percent of its income on the war machine. They have dropped over 44,000 bombs in seven countries in the past two years.  They are a warring nation who always needs an enemy to justify their military spending.  ISIS was not a good enough enemy, and America was tiring of bombing them, so we needed a new enemy to foment fear in the populace.  That would be ....  Russia.   

Dwight D. Eisenhower warned in his outgoing speech as President of the United States, "This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence (economic, political, even spiritual) is felt in every city, every State house, every office of the Federal government.... we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications... In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the militaryindustrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."  

Sadly this has come to pass, the rise of misplaced power and the use of force all over the world to sate the appetite for war, oil and power.  May the forces of good protect Mr. Trump and the world from those elite globalist power brokers who feed on war and greed

MONTENEGRO & NATO: WHY TO DIE FOR THEM??

By Doug Bandow (Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own.)

Don't Add Montenegro To 'Obsolete' NATO: Senate Shouldn't Sacrifice U.S. Security For Balkan Mouse. To the shock of European leaders, President-elect Donald Trump has reiterated his attack on NATO as "obsolete." He's right. The U.S. once created military alliances to advance its own security. These days, however, Washington treats them like social organizations, which every nation should be invited to join, irrespective of qualification.

So it was with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s vote last week to admit Montenegro, a quaint but geopolitically irrelevant Balkan state, into NATO. If the measure is approved by the full Senate, Americans will have yet another essentially useless defense dependent, this one a corrupt, long-time one-party gangster state. Quite a model for future alliance expansion.

NATO was established to shield war-ravaged Western Europe from the Soviet menace after the end of World War II. However, Dwight Eisenhower warned against turning the alliance into a welfare program, with the Europeans forever dependent on U.S. defense subsidies. Alas, his successors didn’t listen and today a continent with a larger population and economy than America skimps on its own military while expecting Americans to come to its aid whenever the slightest problem arises. Truly the U.S. dominated alliance is "obsolete."

It was bad enough that Washington felt the need to protect larger, wealthier European nations. But after the collapse of the Soviet Union NATO acted like a gentleman’s club which every civilized European state wanted to join. Thus entered former Warsaw Pact nations and Soviet republics, extending the alliance up to Russia’s borders. That included Poland and the Baltic States, all essentially irrelevant to the security of the rest of the continent and the latter almost indefensible, at least at reasonable cost, as the U.S. and other Europeans finally have come to recognize.

More recent proposals to bring in Georgia and Ukraine suggested that Washington had gone slightly mad. The two prospective members would offer nothing to America’s defense but would bring along potential conflicts with nuclear-armed Russia. Both would be security black holes, almost all obligation and no benefit. (Small military contingents offered for misguided U.S. interventions in Afghanistan and Iraq are no recompense for confronting a nuclear-armed power in its neighborhood over interests it considers to be vital.)

What now? While tossing out members mistakenly inducted, like the Baltics, would be difficult, Washington should at least stop adding members who add nothing to America’s security.

But the alliance, whose bureaucratic interest is to ever expand, even to the detriment of its members’ actual security, has invited Montenegro to join. It is a postage stamp country with about enough people for one U.S. congressional district. Montenegro deserves its own novel, like the fictional Duchy of Grand Fenwick in The Mouse that Roared. But Podgorica shouldn’t be part of NATO.

Montenegro’s advocates attempted to rush its inclusion through the lame duck session, but were blocked by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kty) and others. Now, like horror villain Freddy Krueger, NATO membership back. Again, the Senate’s usual hawks are attempting to wave the duchy lookalike through before Donald Trump is inaugurated. After all, there is a chance that he would put America’s security ahead of that of Montenegro and kill the move.

What is the case for adding Podgorica to America’s lengthy defense dole? Rather hilariously, the Heritage Foundation headlined a recent study “Support for Montenegro’s Accession to NATO Would Send a Message of Strength.” Yes, it would be tragic if the U.S. and entire European continent had to face the Russian hordes without Montenegro at their side.

The duchy, er, country has 2080 men under arms. To transport them are eight, count them, eight armored personnel carriers, and seven operational helicopters. But NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg discerned that “Montenegro has some military capabilities which are important also to NATO.” Apparently all those years of declining European defense spending finally had an effect, leaving the rest of Europe dependent on Podgorica!

Seriously, if the West’s survival depends on Montenegro’s inclusion in NATO, we should all be heading for the bunkers. And any capabilities which the country develops are likely to be paid for by American taxpayers with funds to upgrade the Montenegrin legions. If America and Montenegro step forth to conquer the world, it will be in a fantasy movie, not a reality show.

If rebuffed by NATO, it has been argued, Grand Fenwick, er, Montenegro might offer Russia a naval base on the Adriatic. Such an inconstant partner would be a dubious treaty ally. Exactly what the inferior Russian navy would do with such a base is not evident. And such a facility, surrounded by NATO members and on waters dominated by NATO members, would be even less defensible than the Baltics.

If not useful for military purposes, is there any other reason to bring Podgorica into NATO? Last year Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Michael R. Carpenter testified that Montenegro shared the alliance’s “values of democracy, individual liberty, and the rule of law.” It was a unintentionally comedic performance. Whatever Podgorica’s virtues, reflecting the best of the West is not one.

For instance, last year the group Freedom House rated Montenegro as only “partly free” in political rights and civil liberties. And the trend was down. Civil liberties took a particular hit “due to restrictions on the freedom of peaceful assembly.” There also were concerns “about the independence of the judiciary and the public broadcaster, as well as numerous failures to effectively prosecute past attacks against media workers.” Moreover, Freedom House cited “indirect censorship.” Corruption is a major problem, yet “NGOs that investigate corruption or criticize the government face pressure.”

In its 2015/2016 report, Amnesty International stated: “Threats and attacks against independent media and journalists continued: few perpetrators were brought to justice. Police used excessive force during mass protests organized by opposition parties.” There was unlawful surveillance of critical NGOs.

NOTE: Newspaper VIJESTI Podgorica 
The montenegrin newspaper Vijesti is not uncommon to copy articles from international newspapers. This time even writes in an article published today by Milos Rudovic, false and wile things faked the whole exposure made by DOUG BANDOW in his gorgeous original version published on Forbes.

Montenegro: The White House and Pentagon (Obama) support the Balkans States gaining membership but the Senate has yet to approve it and Donald Trump will oppose it as new U.S. President

The implications of Montenegro joining Nato – or its membership stalling, particularly in the US – are likely to be felt in eastern European nations closer to Russia’s frontiers that might also seek alliance membership, Brown indicated.

“If this can be completed before the end of the administration, it will send a strong signal to those countries pushing to be Nato members that Nato maintains an open-door policy. If you commit to the work needs to be done, Nato is open to you,” she said.

“This is the path [Montenegro] decided to take, and Russia needs to accept it and then move on.”

GAMBLING IN ITALY TOUCHING FREEMASONRY HIGH LEVELS

Further down you can read as one man has unleashed, with its investigative intrusion, an cruel underground war between western Secret Services, who never was so critical and dirty as in that days.

Roberto Di Legamiwho directs the Italian national police division that specializes in combatting internet and other communications network crimestold The Associated Press in a telephone interview Tuesday.  

He said: "In the eight months we have been investigating, we haven't registered any evidence of extortion activity, or attempts to (use hacked data) to obtain influence." 

Police Chief Franco Gabrielli has decided to make changes at the head of Italy's postal police, with the current director, Roberto Di Legami, being switched to a new post, sources said Wednesday. Among the reasons for the changes is the fact that a case of alleged spying on figures such as ex-premier Matteo Renzi and ECB chief Mario Draghi was allegedly underrated, as top officials at the department of public security were not informed.


Italian Police have arrested a brother-and-sister team suspected of conducting an ambitious, years-long campaign of hacking that targeted thousands of accounts belonging to some of the leading political and business figures in Italy. 

The motive of the sprawling campaign, which carried Masonic overtones, remains a mystery. But those in the crosshairs included Matteo Renzi when he was Italian premier, European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi and much of the cream of Italy's elite.

Police said that it was an assist from the FBI that helped cracked the "cyberespionage headquarters" and led arrests of Giulio Occhionero, 45, and his 49-year-old sister Francesca Maria Occhionero. They are being kept in isolation in two different jails in Rome.

The two live in the Italian capital, where they are reportedly well known in the world of high finance. They also have a legal residence in London, where at one point they registered a securities company, Di Legami said. Prosecutors' requests for the arrest warrants alleged that the duo tried to hack into Renzi's personal email twice in June, when he was still premier, and into Draghi's email account once in June and again in July.

A person familiar with the matter said there was no indication any European Central Bank account was successfully breached. The person spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the matter. Italian police were generous with praise for the FBI's help. Di Legami said the FBI found the servers despite the suspect's use of the online anonymity tool Tor to mask their electronic movements.

The FBI did not return a message seeking comment on the nature of its assistance, confirming only that it had helped with the investigation through the U.S. Embassy in Rome. All but one of the servers the Occhioneros allegedly used in their scheme were located in the United States, Di Legami said. He added that, until the Americans hand the servers to Italian investigators, it will not be known if any of the hacking attempts succeeded and if so, what data might have been extracted from the targeted accounts.


Other prominent Italians whose accounts allegedly were targeted include Fabrizio Saccomanni, a former Italian economy minister who also served as a top official of Italy's central bank; a Catholic cardinal holding Vatican posts; Mario Monti, an economist who wrestled with Italy's financial crisis as premier from 2011 to 2013; former top officials of the Italian tax police squad; and Italian politicians from across the political spectrum.

Politicians expressed relief that a cyber-spy operation had been unmasked and demanded investigators get to the bottom of it. "Everything must be rapidly cleared up, avoiding news leaks," Debora Serracchiani, a top official with Renzi's Democratic Party, said. "Certainly, a criminal plan has been uncovered upon which many hypotheses can be made."

The alleged hacking operation came to light as Italian politics already are roiled over Renzi's stepping down as premier last month after a referendum defeat and maneuvering ahead of likely early elections that could come this year. Ignazio La Russa, a right-wing lawmaker who was among the cyber-spies' targets, was quoted by the Italian news agency ANSA as saying that he did not feel anguished about information of his that may have been taken.

"A member of Parliament must be transparent. If they asked me, I would have given them the info gratis," La Russa said. La Russa added: "I'd be sorry however, if they spied on my private life, entering in the accounts of my wife or children." Giulio Occhionero co-founded a Roman investment firm named Westlands Securities SpA, according to his LinkedIn profile and a former employee of the company who didn't want to be identified in connection with the investigation.

Di Legami said investigators think the firm might have been set up largely as a cover for criminal activities, although they found evidence Westland Securities provided legitimate financial advising, including for construction at a southern Italian port, and also had some dealings in stocks and bonds. Giulio Occhionero was the main force in the duo, drawing on his background as an engineer (he has a degree in nuclear engineering) as well as formidable talent as a quantitative analyst, the police official said.

Francesca Maria Occhionero, whose LinkedIn page shows she served as Westland Securities' managing director, mainly helped with support logistics. Di Legami said the investigators' big break came when a security manager at a government office dealing with computer security received an email from a law office he didn't recognize. Alarmed, the manager asked a security firm to trace the IP address. When the IP address didn't match the one used by the law office, police investigators picked up the trail.

Di Legami said the hackers used sophisticated and complex malware and were able to access their victims' networks for long periods of time, remotely harvesting emails, communications and other documents from targeted computers. In all, the suspects allegedly obtained some 18,000 usernames and nearly 1,800 passwords.

The suspects created numerous folders to divide up their targets. Among the more creatively named ones was a folder dubbed "Bros" that included persons who supposedly belong to a Masonic lodge and another folder dubbed POBU — for politicians and business — in which various individuals from high-level politics and business were listed. Investigators moved to have the suspects arrested because of the "concrete danger" they could flee abroad, police said! No Comment...

MONTENEGRO DIRTY DREAM

By L. Todd Wood
With the election of Donald J. Trump as president of the United States, the earth has moved. Things are not going to be the same. Nowhere is this more evident than in Europe and especially within the NATO alliance.

Mr. Trump stated during the campaign, to much derision from the U.S. policy elite, that America’s relationship with NATO needs to fundamentally re-examined. Countries that are not paying their fair share should be confronted. 

The one thing that Mr. Trump is sure to do is to place a clear priority on the needs and security of the United States; the needs of a globalist Europe will come second. Key NATO governments need to do some soul-searching about the role they are playing in the West’s collective defense.

The sovereign debt of the U.S. is now over $20 trillion, on its way to $30 trillion. The president-elect is right — we can no longer afford to defend the world. We especially do not need to be picking fights where our national security and influence are not clearly at stake. 

The world is no longer black and white.

That leads me to my point. Why are we even discussing right now enlarging NATO? Does expansion enhance our national security? Sure, it may allow some countries to sleep better at night, knowing the U.S. nuclear umbrella is overhead. But do we really want to be putting our men and women on the line for some of these countries? Our national treasure? The blood of our soldiers?


The October election, which would have given him another term in power had he not subsequently resigned, was marred by voting irregularities and reports of criminal behavior. Many analysts believe Mr. Djukanovic will continue to pull the levers of power, as Vladimir Putin did while ally Dmitry Medvedev was serving a single term as president, allowing Mr. Putin to return to the throne four years later in 2012.

GEORGE SOROS' GAMBLING

FROM BALKANS WITH BLOOD

EU: We’re tracking Balkan arms flow to Syria. The M79-OSA anti-tank weapon, made in the former Yugoslavia, has found its way onto Syria’s battlefields Maja Kocijancic, a spokeswoman for EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, told OCCRP partner BIRN that the External Action Service was “very active in this field”, adding: “We are looking at the report that you have published.”

The service is already gathering data on illicit weapons found in Syria and Iraq.

Making a Killing: the €1.2 Billion Arms Pipeline to Middle East 

An investigation by OCCRP and BIRN published last week revealed that since 2012 exports of weapons and ammunition to the Middle East worth at least €1.2 billion (US$ 1.34 billion) have been approved by Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia and Slovakia to four countries supporting Syria’s armed opposition.

The bulk of the deals, totalling €829 million, were made with Saudi Arabia.

The exporting countries granted the licences despite ample evidence that many weapons are being diverted to Syria, ending up with armed opposition as well as Islamist groups accused of widespread abuses.

EU members and those looking to join the union are legally obliged to carry out eight different checks before agreeing to an arms export licence, including assessing the risk that a weapons could be diverted or end up in the hands of a terrorist.

Kocijancic added: “We are aware of the reports on arms transfers from Europe to the Middle East, which allege illicit diversion of weapons to Islamist groups such as Da’esh, Ansar al-Sham or Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, and are looking into this issue.” Da’esh is an Arabic acronym for ISIS that is considered pejorative by the group.

She was unable to confirm whether prospective EU members from the Balkans were likely to be criticised for their Middle East exports in the yearly progress reports due out this autumn, but added: “The fight against organised crime – that includes drugs, arms and people smuggling, is looked at extremely carefully.”

Arms trade and human rights experts said the diversion of these weapons and their use by groups suspected of committing war crimes meant the trade was likely illegal.

The BIRN and OCCRP investigation, published alongside The Guardian, has made international headlines and sparked reactions from governments and senior officials.
