This is a chapter-by-chapter analysis and documentation of the power of Israel via the Israeli, Jewish or Pro-Zionist Lobby on US Middle East policy. 

It raises serious questions as to the primary beneficiary of US policy, and its destructive results for the United States. The extraordinary extent of US political, economic, military and diplomatic support for the state of Israel is explored, along with the means whereby such support is generated and consolidated. Contending that Zionist power in America ensured unconditional US backing for Israeli colonization of Palestine and its massive uprooting of Palestinians, it views the interests of Israel rather than those of Big Oil as the primary cause of the disastrous US wars against Iraq and threats of war against Iran and Syria. It demonstrates and condemns US imitation of Israeli practice as it relates to conduct of the war on terrorism and torture. It sheds light on the AIPAC spying scandal and other Israeli espionage against America; the fraudulent and complicit role of America’s academic “terrorist experts-in furthering criminal government policies, and the orchestration of the Danish cartoons to foment antipathy between Muslims and the West. It questions the inability in America to sustain or even formulate a discourse related to the subject of Israeli influence on the United States. It calls for a review of American Mid East policy with a view to reclaiming US independence of action based upon enlightened self-interest and progressive principles.

Glencore is keeping the marketing rights for the Sarir and Messla crude grades for a third year even though BP and Shell are returning to lift Libyan oil in a sign the country’s industry is perceived as becoming more reliable. One source familiar with the matter said Libya’s state oil firm National Oil Corporation (NOC) had allocated its 2018 crude and that the contracts would be signed next week. 

With production having steadied at around 1 million barrels per day (bpd) since the middle of last year, Libya, beset by factional fighting, has become a less unstable supplier. However, supply risks remain. One pipeline bringing Es Sider crude to export was recently bombed but swiftly repaired. BP and Shell declined to comment. Spokesmen for Glencore and the NOC did not immediately respond to requests for comment (Last August, Shell directly lifted its first cargo of Libyan crude in five years).

Since the end of 2015, Glencore has been the sole marketer of the Sarir and Messla grades, which are produced in the east of the country and exported via the Hariga port. Glencore was one of the few traders willing to deal with the risks associated with Libya’s unrest, Islamic State intrusions and a crippling port blockade that slashed the country’s output.

Earlier this month, the NOC said it was seeking a prompt restart of the country’s largest refinery at Ras Lanuf, following a resolution to arbitration cases with its operator, Lerco. The refinery, closed since 2013, runs on the grades allocated to Glencore. It was not immediately clear when the refinery would resume operations or what would happen to Glencore’s allocation once it does. 

NOC subsidiary Arabian Gulf Oil Co produces the Sarir and Messla grades. Output has been fluctuating between around 150,000 and 230,000 bpd, its chairman said in early January, below its potential 320,000 bpd owing to power problems.

Other contract winners include Vitol, Total, Unipec, OMV, BB Energy, ENI, API, Cepsa, Socar and Repsol, trading and shipping sources said, largely unchanged from 2017 to June, 2018.

-Shell and BP have agreed annual deals to buy Libyan crude oil. Sources told the news agency that Shell’s deal is the first of its kind since 2013, and that the first cargo of 600,000 barrels will start to be loaded from Zueitina port.

-The head the eastern-based National Oil Corporation EAST (NOC) has claimed that his office has signed 29 contracts independently of the Tripoli-based organisation.

Naji al-Maghrabi told Reuters that recent contracts included deals with major states such as Russia and China. Russia is reported to be planning to arm eastern-based strongman General Khalifa Haftar

-The Deputy Prime Minister of Libya’s internationally recognized government in Tobruk, Abdus Salam al Badri, told a conference last week in Malta that his government will punish international oil companies (IOCs) that continue to work with the rival administration in Tripoli.

-In parallel, the Chairman of the National Oil Corporation (NOC) based in the East of Libya, BP, which didn’t have a term deal in 2017, has reportedly also reached an agreement for this year.

-The Tripoli-based National Oil Corporation (NOC) held a series of meetings with a group of global refineries in the Mediterranean area and with a major oil companies last week in London. The first meeting was with BP, followed by meetings with more than 20 partners, customers, Libyan crude refiners and fuel suppliers. BP, which didn’t have a term deal in 2017, has reportedly also reached an agreement for this year.

-The newly-created National Oil Corporation (NOC) loyal to the internationally recognised government in the east of Libya has reportedly invited international oil companies (IOCs) to “discuss legally signed agreements and contracts” at a conference in Dubai next month.

-The Tobruk government set up the rival company – ‘NOC East’ – in Benghazi, but oil buyers are still dealing only with the established NOC in Tripoli. According to Reuters, oil customers have refused to sign any deal with the eastern entity due to legal concerns as geological data to prove ownership of oil reserves are stored at NOC Tripoli. The invitation to a conference on 2nd September was issued by Naji al-Maghrabi, who was recently appointed chairman of the eastern NOC.

-The head the eastern-based National Oil Corporation (NOC) has claimed that his office has signed 29 contracts independently of the Tripoli-based organisation.  Naji al-Maghrabi told Reuters that recent contracts included deals with major states such as Russia and China. Russia is reported to be planning to arm eastern-based strongman General Khalifa Haftar, commander in the Libyan National Army (LNA), who opposes the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) in Tripoli.

-The Deputy Prime Minister of Libya’s internationally recognized government in Tobruk, Abdussalam Elbadri, told a conference last week in Malta that his government will punish international oil companies (IOCs) that continue to work with the rival administration in Tripoli.

-In parallel, the Chairman of the National Oil Corporation (NOC) based in the East of Libya, Nagi al-Magrabi, told Bloomberg: “We will send letters to all the international companies that operate in Libya asking them to deal with the internationally recognized and legal government. “We will take measures based on their respective replies to the letter. If they continue to decline to cooperate with the legal government, we will stop their loadings once their contracts expire.” Mahdi Khalifa, an NOC board member, said that any oil companies that refuse to cooperate with the government face the risk of legal action.

-Libya’s internationally recognised government has warned companies against dealing with the Tripoli-based National Oil Corporation (NOC). Speaking to a press conference of Beida, the head of the House of Representatives (HoR), Abdullah al-Thinni (pictured), said his government is taking further steps to export crude oil from the regions under its control through its locally recognized “NOC”, and away from the Tripoli-based organisation.

-The chairman of the pro-HoR “NOC”, Mabruk Abu Yousef Maraja, warned of the illegality or illegitimacy of dealing with the NOC in Tripoli. He also warned Tripoli not to enter into any contracts or legal actions that would impose any obligations on the Libyan oil sector.

-National Oil Corporation (NOC) Chairman Nuri Berruien [Nuri Balrwin] (pictured), has confirmed that there are to be no new exploration-production sharing agreements (EPSAs) before mid-2014. Answering questions at the end of a conference in London, he added that this would probably be “during a constitutional government”, implying that the current “interim” government is not deemed constitutional enough or does not have the authority or legitimacy to launch an EPSA bidding round, according to Libya Herald. He added that he hoped for a “win-win” situation for both the NOC and the international oil companies, admitting that the current EPSAs had problems for both parties and hoped that the new EPSAs would “encourage long-term development”.

Glencore oil deal in Libya branded worthless by rival government. Internationally recognised regime in Benghazi says commodity firm’s potentially lucrative oil-export deal in Tripoli is with the wrong people. 

Glencore’s deal to export Libyan oil is not worth the paper it is printed on, the commodities company has been told. The Switzerland-based firm agreed last week to buy up to half of Libya’s oil exports from the western division of the National Oil Company in Tripoli, where an Islamist-backed government is based. But the internationally recognised government in Benghazi, in eastern Libya, said Glencore had signed a deal with the wrong people

Nagi Elmagrabi, chairman of the eastern division of the National Oil Company, told Bloomberg that he had written to Glencore asking for an explanation but not yet received a reply. He said that if Glencore had signed a deal with the parallel regime in Tripoli, the Benghazi government could physically prevent Glencore tankers from using Libyan ports. 

The deal in question envisages Glencore loading and finding buyers for crude oil from the Sarir and Messla fields, exported via Tobruk’s Marsa el-Hariga port in the east. The eastern government says it does not recognise any agreement signed with Tripoli.

Finding a way to resolve the impasse could prove particularly lucrative for Glencore, given that Libya’s oil exports have huge potential to increase. Libya was pumping about 1.6m barrels of oil a day before the civil war that ended Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s rule in 2011. 

Production has since slumped to as low as 400,000 barrels a day, although it could be increased if the security situation in Libya improves. Glencore regularly invests in countries where security risks and political turmoil have deterred other investors, such as the Democratic Republic of Congo and Colombia

However, the company is in need of new sources of income, after the economic slowdown in China prompted a slump in global commodity prices, ravaging its share price. The company floated its shares at £5.30 in 2011 but they have since plunged, closing on Monday at 90.42p. 

The firm announced proposals earlier this year to raise £6.6bn in an effort to allay investors’ fears about its £20bn debt pile. The plan includes mine closures, asset sales and a £1.6bn share-placing but has yet to arrest the decline in Glencore’s stock. Glencore declined to comment on its dealings in Libya

Macedonian and Albanian leaders on Wednesday 27 welcomed the decision by European ministers to give a conditional green light to their EU accession talks.

“There will be sweat, tears and many disappointments but we will succeed!” Macedonian Foreign Minister Nikola Dimitrov wrote on Facebook.

“Now we will climb a mountain road, narrow and steep, marred by rain and ghastly wind, but we will succeed,” he added.

Macedonia’s Prime Minister Zoran Zaev said it was great news for the country and offered a major “motivation” for achieving a “European Macedonia”.

After a long debate on Tuesday among the bloc's European affairs ministers, it was decided that Albania and Macedonia’s EU accession talks will start in June next year, dependent on certain conditions being fulfilled.

The unexpected outcome, despite broad EU support, showed French President Emmanuel Macron’s determination to postpone the decision until after European Parliament elections in May, for fear of stoking anti-immigrant sentiment, diplomats said.

It also puts a brake on the momentum Germany and EU chief executive Jean-Claude Juncker had sought in the Western Balkans to counter Russian influence by offering six countries a path to EU membership.

EU governments will “set out the path towards accession negotiations in June 2019” for Macedonia and Albania, according to a document agreed by the bloc’s 28 Europe ministers at what diplomats said was a long, fraught meeting in Luxembourg.

“It was a very difficult birth,” Germany’s EU minister Michael Roth said of the compromise decision.

Germany, Austria, Sweden, Slovakia and many other EU countries had hoped for an agreement on Tuesday that would give clear approval for membership talks to start. EU leaders were due to have signed off at a summit on Thursday in Brussels.

Albania, Bosnia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia all hope to join the EU.

Membership talks are already underway with Serbia and Montenegro. Albania, which is NATO member, and Macedonia, which has reached an agreement to resolve a dispute over its name with Greece, had won the support of the European Commission, which recommended that membership talks be opened.

Even with the delay, Macedonia’s deputy prime minister for European Affairs, Bujar Osmani, said on Twitter his country was now “on the path to open the accession negotiations next June”.

Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama also hailed the ministers’ decision “after 72 hours of stormy debate” as a victory. “The results of our huge reforms finally led even the sceptics to accept that Albania and Macedonia are ready to negotiate,” Rama tweeted in English.

However, opposition leader Lulzim Basha said Albania would be turned away in a year if it did not fight crime and corruption.

Macron, backed by the Netherlands, has said the bloc must first reform itself before taking on new members, although EU diplomats say Paris is mainly concerned about anti-immigrant sentiment at home.

The rushed accession of Romania and Bulgaria in 2007 and the poorly managed migration of eastern European workers to Britain, which turned many Britons against the European project, have made EU enlargement more difficult, officials say.

The Dutch parliament has approved opening EU membership talks with Macedonia after the agreement with Greece to change the country’s official name to Republic of North Macedonia. But the Dutch government was unwilling to move before France, diplomats said.

In their statement, EU ministers said both Albania and Macedonia needed to do more on judicial reforms, corruption and organised crime. Depending on progress next June and another report by the Commission, which oversees membership talks, EU governments could formally open negotiations by the end of next year.

Both countries have to show “a track record both in improving the rule of law and fighting organised crime”, Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok told reporters.

Many European countries, including Austria which will chair the EU rotating presidency from July, want to send a signal to Albania, Macedonia and other Western Balkan countries that the way to EU membership is still is open, especially as Macedonia looks set to be welcomed into the NATO alliance in July.Albanian PM Edi Rama said that "after 72 hours of stormy debate" the decision comes as a victory.

Albania and Macedonia hope the decision will clear the way for approval by EU leaders at a summit on June 28-29. EU enlargement commissioner Johannes Hahn said after the meeting that the decision was a “key signal to the region that progress is rewarded”.

While most of the EU's member states supported opening the accession talks immediately, France and the Netherlands opposed the move, saying they first wanted to see Macedonia and Albania sustain their reforms.

The two countries were given several key conditions to meet before starting the talks. They include judicial reforms, active investigations and verdicts in high-level corruption cases, reforms in the intelligence and security sectors and public administration reform.

Arguably the most important condition for Macedonia is the implementation of the recent ‘name’ deal with Greece, under which the country should change its name to the Republic of North Macedonia.

(Steta Stari moj Dragi da si se potpun pogresio)

No country of people's democracy has so many nationalities as this country has. Only in Czechoslovakia do there exist two kindred nationalities, while in some of the other countries there are only minorities. Consequently in these countries of people's democracy there has been no need to settle such serious problems as we have had to settle here. With them the road to socialism is less complicated than is the case here. 

With them the basic factor is the class issue, with us it is both the nationalities and the class issue. The reason why we were able to settle the nationalities question so thoroughly is to be found in the fact that it had begun to be settled in a revolutionary way in the course of the Liberation War, in which all the nationalities in the country participated, in which every national group made its contribution to the general effort of liberation from the occupier according to its capabilities. 

Neither the Macedonians nor any other national group which until then had been oppressed obtained their national liberation by decree. They fought for their national liberation with rifle in hand. The role of the Communist Party lay in the first place in the fact that it led that struggle, which was a guarantee that after the war the national question would be settled decisively in the way the communists had conceived long before the war and during the war. 

The role of the Communist Party in this respect today, in the phase of building socialism, lies in making the positive national factors a stimulus to, not a brake on, the development of socialism in our country. The role of the Communist Party today lies in the necessity for keeping a sharp lookout to see that national chauvinism does not appear and develop among any of the nationalities. The Communist Party must always endeavour, and does endeavour, to ensure that all the negative phenomena of nationalism disappear and that people are educated in the spirit of internationalism. 

What are the phenomena of nationalism? Here are some of them: 1) National egoism, from which many other negative traits of nationalism are derived, as for example — a desire for foreign conquest, a desire to oppress other nations, a desire to impose economic exploitation upon other nations, and so on; 2) national-chauvinism which is also a source of many other negative traits of nationalism, as for example national hatred, the disparagement of other nations, the disparagement of their history, culture, and scientific activities and scientific achievements, and so on, the glorification of developments in their own history that were negative and which from our Marxist point of view are considered negative. 

 And what are these negative things? Wars of conquest are negative, the subjugation and oppression of other nations is negative, economic exploitation is negative, colonial enslavement is negative, and so on. All these things are accounted negative by Marxism and condemned. All these phenomena of the past can, it is true, be explained, but from our point of view they can never be justified. In a socialist society such phenomena must and will disappear. In the old Yugoslavia national oppression by the great-Serb capitalist clique meant strengthening the economic exploitation of the oppressed peoples. 

This is the inevitable fate of all who suffer from national oppression. In the new, socialist Yugoslavia the existing equality of rights for all nationalities has made it impossible for one national group to impose economic exploitation upon another. That is because hegemony of one national group over another no longer exists in this country. Any such hegemony must inevitably bring with it, to some degree or other, in one form or another, economic exploitation; and that would be contrary to the principles upon which socialism rests. 

Only economic, political, cultural, and universal equality of rights can make it possible for us to grow in strength in these tremendous endeavours of our community. Our sacrifices are terrible. I can safely say that there is no other part of the world which has been devastated on a vaster scale than Yugoslavia. Every tenth Yugoslav has perished in this struggle in which we were forced to wrest armaments from our enemies, to freeze without clothing, and to die without medication. Nevertheless our optimism and faith have proved justified. 

The greatest gain of this conflict between democracy and fascism lies in the fact that it has drawn together everything that was good in humanity. The unity of the United States, the Soviet Union and Great Britain is the best guarantee to the peoples of the world that Nazi horrors will never again be repeated. (Tito)

Mario Sechi "Il gioco delle nomine:Servizi Segreti e Stellette". C’è un pianeta visibile e c’è una galassia invisibile. C’è la fiamma e ci sono le stellette. C’è il mondo di sopra e quello di sotto. E per fortuna è tutta roba che non si twitta, sfugge alla breve esistenza del social, è materia di concretezza assoluta. Siamo nel campo della Legge e dell’Ordine, della Sicurezza e dell’Intelligence. 

Qui il governo Renzi si sta muovendo silenziosamente (e per ora bene). Carabinieri e Servizi Segreti sono il fulcro di questo mondo. Il 16 gennaio scorso il governo ha affidato il Comando dell’Arma alle mani esperte di Tullio Del Sette. E’ il 59° Comandante Generale della storia dei Carabinieri, viene da Bevagna, Accademia militare a Modena, tre lauree, tre encomi solenni, un elogio, è stato il primo carabiniere capo di Gabinetto del ministero della Difesa, chiamato a quel ruolo dal ministro Roberta Pinotti. 

In precedenza è stato capo dell’ufficio legislativo di Antonio Martino, Arturo Parisi e Ignazio La Russa. E’ un profilo diverso da quello del precedente comandante, Leonardo Gallitelli, è più distaccato nel carattere, come deve essere un uomo chiamato a cambiare la Benemerita. Del Sette con grande rapidità sta costruendo la sua squadra di Comando. Il 21 marzo Vincenzo Giuliani è diventato vice-Comandante e ormai appare prossima un’altra nomina fondamentale: il Comandante dei ROS. 

Il candidato favorito alla guida è il generale Giuseppe Governale, palermitano, da due anni comandante della Legione Sicilia. Il Raggruppamento operativo speciale è figlio dell’evoluzione della struttura anticrimine dell’Arma e i suoi uomini sono il fulcro di qualsiasi indagine riguardante la criminalità organizzata e il terrorismo interno e internazionale. Qualche settimana fa veniva dato in corsa anche il generale Aloisio Mariggiò, Comandante della Legione Calabria, ma Governale – secondo i rumor di Palazzo – è l’asso nel mazzo di carte di Del Sette.

Il ROS è una struttura che ha sempre avuto grande autonomia e ha una storia legata alle grandi inchieste sulla mafia. Articolato in 6 Reparti, ha un’organizzazione periferica composta da Reparti nelle principali città (Roma, Milano, Torino, Napoli, Reggio Calabria e Palermo), venti sezioni e due nuclei anticrimine. Il ROS ha una storia di gloria (la cattura di Totò Riina) e di contrasti con l’Autorità Giudiziaria (il caso del Generale Mario Mori). 

Oltre al Comandante, cambierà anche fisionomia? Di certo il generale Del Sette ha inaugurato una linea di discontinuità e punta a dare all’Arma un profilo ancor più operativo. Nel bilancio della Difesa i Carabinieri sono sotto la voce “Sicurezza del Territorio”, costano circa 5,6 miliardi di euro e rappresentano il 27,5 per cento (dato del 2013) dello stanziamento totale, pari a 19,7 miliardi di euro per il 2015. E’ una spesa in diminuzione che ha bisogno di essere riqualificata. Gli obiettivi? Maggior coordinamento, fine delle duplicazioni, ringiovanimento – problema comune a tutte le Forze Armate – recupero di efficienza e risparmi molto forti.

L’Arma è il mondo visibile. E quello invisibile? Sono i Servizi Segreti, galassia di sigle, funzioni, missioni, operazioni. Il sistema italiano è un ibrido dove ai due Servizi classici di spionaggio (AISI) e controspionaggio (AISE) è stato aggiunto una sorta di zar dell’Intelligence, il DIS che – come vedremo – proprio zar non è. Le funzioni di coordinamento politico sono affidate a quella che burocraticamente viene chiamata Autorità delegata. Chi è? Un sottosegretario o un ministro senza portafoglio che esercita funzioni di “uomo ovunque”. 

Al di sopra di questi organismi, c’è il Comitato Interministeriale per la Sicurezza della Repubblica, composto dal premier, i ministri della Difesa, degli Esteri, dell’Interno, della Giustizia, dello Sviluppo economico, dell’Economia, l’Autorità delegata, e il direttore del DIS che ha funzioni di Segretario del comitato. E’ un’altra sigla (CISR) che aumenta il gioco delle complicazioni. Nell’aprile del 2014 il governo Renzi ha messo a capo del controspionaggio il generale Alberto Manenti, uomo dell’Esercito, dal 1980 al Sismi, già numero due dell’AISE, una soluzione di continuità.

Il vertice dell’AISE è occupato dal giugno del 2012 dal generale dei carabinieri Arturo Esposito, e il suo mandato è in scadenza. Al vertice del DIS dal maggio del 2012 c’è l’Ambasciatore Giampiero Massolo, esperienze a Mosca e a Bruxelles, Consigliere diplomatico del governo Ciampi, Segretario Generale della Farnesina, sherpa per il G8, un diplomatico di lungo corso. Anche il suo mandato è in scadenza, ma a differenza di quello dei vertici di AISE e AISI, l’incarico di Massolo può essere rinnovato, una sola volta.

C’è ancora tempo per le nomine, ma il governo Renzi ha cominciato a muovere le pedine. Il 19 maggio scorso la prima mossa: Palazzo Chigi nomina tre nuovi vicedirettori e “libera” la casella del comando del ROS. Alla vicedirezione dell’AISI vanno il Generale della Guardia di Finanza Vincenzo Delle Femmine e il Generale dei carabinieri Mario Parente (Comandante del ROS), mentre alla vicedirezione dell’Aise si sposta il generale della Guardia di Finanza Paolo Poletti che aveva il ruolo di vicedirettore dell’AISI. Renzi di fatto libera la poltrona del ROS (dove Del Sette dovrebbe proporre il nome di Governale) e prepara il terreno per la successione a Esposito (AISI) e Massolo (DIS). 

Quest’ultimo ha un ruolo schiacciato dalla barocca organizzazione di Palazzo Chigi, è tra l’incudine della naturale autonomia esercitata dai Capi dei Servizi e il martello del ruolo politico dell’Autorità delegata che oggi ha il nome, il cognome e l’intraprendenza del Sottosegretario Marco Minniti, calabrese coriaceo, cultore (e tutore) della delicata materia chiamata "Intelligence". Lo zar, insomma, non coordina nulla. O poco.

E’ l’architettura, l’organizzazione dei Servizi che non è snella e funzionale, il problema viene fuori con un semplice colpo d’occhio all’organigramma. Minniti è il vero dominus, si muove con i poteri di fatto di un consigliere per la Sicurezza Nazionale degli Stati Uniti, solo che questa figura nell’ordinamento italiano non esiste e così Minniti finisce per entrare (a gamba tesa o meno) sui dossier che riguardano i ministri della Difesa, dell’Interno, degli Esteri e della Giustizia. 

Vedere alla voce Marò, per esempio. Il DIS a sua volta ne esce fuori depotenziato e la sua autorità di conseguenza non riconosciuta, i direttori dei servizi mettono il pilota automatico, il presidente del Consiglio finisce per avere informazioni discontinue, parziali e qualche volta illusorie. Siamo ben lontani, come si vede, dal collegamento diretto che ha la Casa Bianca con la CIA – che realizza un brief quotidiano per il presidente – mentre il ruolo del COPASIR (il Comitato Parlamentare per la Sicurezza della Repubblica) è lontano anni luce dal controllo che esercitano i Select Committee on Intelligence della Camera e del Senato degli Stati Uniti. 

E’ un tema aperto da molte legislature, il Parlamento ha una cronica mancanza di strumenti, preparazione e cultura della Sicurezza. Fare le nomine dunque a Renzi non basterà. Il presidente del Consiglio avrà prima o poi davanti a sé il tema del ruolo, della forza e del controllo dei nostri Servizi. In uno scenario che sta cambiando velocemente, con l’avanzare di nuove minacce, di fronte a riforme importanti dei Servizi Segreti e dei loro poteri già fatte in altri paesi, si porrà la questione di aggiornare la riforma che volle Prodi nel 2007. 

Quella riforma attese trent’anni. E per vederne una terza non si può attendere altrettanto. Sono passati otto anni, ma viviamo in un altro mondo. Visibile e invisibile.

Wednesday, March 8


Roberto Galullo scrive: "Excusatio non petita, accusatio manifesta" dicevano i latini che poi, tradotto terra terra, in italiano suona cosi: "se non hai nulla di cui scusarti, non scusarti". Nel caso di specie, mi sembra che questa traduzione vesta meglio che non il proverbiale “chi si scusa si accusa”. Qual è il caso di specie? Presto detto.

Ieri il Gran maestro della Gran loggia d’Italia degli Antichi liberi accettati muratori (in acronimo: ALAM) Antonio Binni ha sentito l’esigenza – in vero non avvertita perché si era già espresso a botta calda il 1° marzo dopo il sequestro degli elenchi dei fratelli siciliani e calabresi da parte della GdF, su ordine della Commissione Parlamentare Antimafia.

«Ci sono momenti per manifestare la propria correttezza e la propria lealtà verso lo Stato – ha infatti detto ieri con un lunghissimo comunicato stampa – e momenti per riflettere ed esprimere le valutazioni necessarie per tutelare i propri diritti. La Gran loggia d’Italia degli ALAM ha ottemperato gli obblighi che le derivano dall’ordine di consegna degli elenchi dei propri iscritti calabri e siciliani emesso dalla Commissione antimafia con grande correttezza, nel rispetto delle Leggi dello Stato che la massoneria pone fra i suoi valori fondanti e fondativi».

Ora – sia ben chiaro – nemmeno sotto tortura Binni spiegherà il vero motivo che lo ha mosso ad emettere un nuovo comunicato stampa che nulla aggiunge alla logica e al buon senso. La correttezza e il rispetto delle leggi – richiamate nella penultima riga – sono scontate. Cos'altro avrebbero potuto fare? Essere scorretti e irrispettosi?

Ecco allora che, proseguendo con la lettura del comunicato, si capisce (almeno questo intuiscono le mie limitate capacità intellettive) che c’era bisogno di spiegare bene (all’interno e tra le obbedienze massoniche di rango e peso) le ragioni di quello «spirito collaborativo» con la Commissione, che non andava scambiato per accondiscendenza. «Rispettare l’ordine non significa condividerlo» ha detto infatti ieri Antonio Binni e questo suona tanto come un messaggio a chi, innanzitutto tra gli 8 mila fratelli della sua obbedienza massonica, si aspettava ferrea determinazione. Accontentati.

C’è però un’altra e distinta parte del comunicato della Gran loggia d’Italia che apre uno scorcio interessantissimo e condivisibile. E’ la parte in cui, dopo aver ovviamente difeso i diritti di associazione e riservatezza dei suoi associati, invita la Commissione antimafia a «rivolgere lo sguardo altrove», vale a dire sui «gruppuscoli sedicenti massonici definiti nel tempo dalla stessa magistratura come massoneria deviata».

Qui – a modesto avviso di questo umile e umido blog – il tema è centratissimo, anche se di «sedicente» a volta non c’è nulla anche perché nella galassia massonica ciascuno rivendica primazia e supremazia.

So infatti per certo – me lo dice la logica, me lo insegna l’esperienza e me lo suggeriscono le indagini attuali e passate della magistratura – che è in quel pulviscolo massonico deviato e fuori dai parametri, che si annida il potere marcio di questo Paese. La storia della P2 ha insegnato a chi vuole delinquere con maggiore raffinatezza anche questo: oltre a provare o riuscire ad infiltrare le obbedienze massoniche, come fu proprio il caso Propaganda 2 con il Grande oriente d’Italia, è ancor più redditizio costruire ex novo (o sulle rovine) centri di potere massonici deviati.

Di più – al momento – non posso scrivere ma in Sicilia il quadro (con le cosiddette “logge selvagge” di cui ho scritto nel passato) che sta emergendo è devastante, come del resto in Calabria. Cosa diversa è dunque il potere esercitato come pressione politica lobbistica e come esercizio di mutuo soccorso  – checché ne dicano le obbedienze massoniche che anzi le negano ad ogni piè sospinto – dalle stesse obbedienze massoniche. 

Se non si infrange la legge, nulla questio. Cosa ancora diversa, infine, sono quei fili sottilissimi – che anche in questo caso sembrano emergere da diverse indagini delle DDA – tra singoli fratelli iscritti alle principali obbedienze massoniche e logge segrete di ben altra natura.

Non so invece (e di conseguenza), quali e quanti nomi (in tutte le obbedienze massoniche sottoposte a sequestro, sia chiaro) la Commissione antimafia troverà di interesse in quello che è lo scopo dichiarato, vale a dire il «rischio di infiltrazione da parte di Cosa Nostra e della ‘ndrangheta di settori della massoneria», a seguito dei preoccupanti elementi emersi «nel corso di missioni in Calabria e Sicilia, di documentazione acquisita ed audizioni finora svolte» (cito testualmente il comunicato stampa della Commissione antimafia).

E se li troveranno anche solo parzialmente (e ne dubito per 1001 motivi come ho già scritto nel passato), che usano possano farne, con una legislatura traballante che non ha tempo per inseguire i grembiulini. Anzi! Esattamente il contrario. Visto mai che dalle parti di Arezzo e Firenze si adirino! 

Tra l’altro – a modesto avviso di questo umile e umido blog – alla luce della probabile scarsa aderenza tra ciò che si cerca e ciò che forse si troverà, molto interessante sarebbe invece vedere quanti e quali dipendenti pubblici e servitori dello Stato sono iscritti alle logge e non lo hanno mai denunciato ai superiori (contrariamente a quanto previsto per legge, checché ne dicano anche in questo caso le Obbedienze stesse e ribadito anche dalla Commissione antimafia).

Di questo secondo filone, però, non c’è traccia alcuna negli impegni proclamati il 1° marzo dalla Commissione antimafia, mentre erano in corso i sequestri degli elenchi. Ma se di quegli elenchi sequestrati (solo di due regioni, e anche questo è a dir poco grottesco), obbligatoriamente per legge, non si può rivelare nulla all’esterno (dunque restano segretati nei cassetti della Commissione antimafia), quale scopo potranno mai soddisfare?

Domande legittime di una situazione che si sta fantozzianamente aggrovigliando e che, ribadisco anche questo, vedrà prima o poi le obbedienze (come avvenuto nel caso della documentazione sequestrata dal pm Agostino Cordova negli anni Novanta) risarcite con le scuse.

Ora non credo, come scrive Binni, che «la richiesta indiscriminata degli elenchi dei nostri iscritti è il segno evidente della vaghezza degli “elementi” di cui dispone la Commissione». Credo, invece, purtroppo, che sia il frutto di una “mescolanza” indotta da un filo della matassa perso nonostante fosse lì a disposizione, sotto gli occhi dei commissari.

Proprio le missioni a Trapani e a Reggio Calabria in primis, e a seguire le audizioni di magistrati delle regioni Sicilia e Calabria, avrebbero dovuto far capire che, alla luce della premessa dalla quale la Commissione si è mossa (condivisibile o meno), la mossa sulla scacchiera era una e una sola: la Commissione doveva sequestrare tutti gli elenchi e di tutte le Obbedienze non solo senza annunciarlo (che più o meno è come dire al sorcio che sta per arrivare il gatto affamato) ma tenendolo doverosamente segreto. 

Poi avrebbe potuto cercare all’interno degli elenchi stessi e d’intesa con la DNAA e le DNA quelle tracce che, al di là della responsabilità penale che è sempre personale, rivelano eventuali aspetti giuridici e penali di diversa e più profonda natura. 

Questa unica e obbligata mossa avrebbe permesso di tener fede alla premessa della Commissione, vale a dire ricercare quelle «relazioni e convergenze tra uomini delle cosche ed esponenti delle classi dirigenti e imprenditoriali appartenenti a logge massoniche finalizzati al perseguimento di comuni interessi illeciti» (cito ancora testualmente il comunicato stampa dell’organismo presieduto da Rosy Bindi).

Insomma se tra i massoni ci sono crepe, la Commissione Parlamentare Antimafia rischia di vorticare intorno ad un profondo buco nell’acqua.

Officially, George Soros became engaged in Romanian affairs in the last days of 1989, after the fall of the Ceausescu regime. But some say that the work of the Hungarian-born US magnate of Jewish origin, began long before the fall of the Communist regime.

In the early '80s, George Soros began to finance the resistance groups and people in communist regimes in Eastern Europe promoting the ideas of "Open Society" . 

In 1979 "Open Society" penetrated Central and Eastern Europe (communist states), but also in many other countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. In 1992, Soros founded - in Budapest - "Central European University", forming frames selected from across Eastern Europe and the former USSR, including Romania.

Romania is one of the European countries which is most oriented towards the Atlanticist geopolitical project. Despite its Orthodox Christian people, its elites always follow a strict pro-EU and pro-American course. The reason is very simple: it is a country where elites and civil society have been completely staffed by the US NGO's, particular by George Soros. The story of Romania deserves attention, because it is exemplary and shows how the methods of establishing Western liberal domination actually work.

Even though he has never recognized his involvement in Romania before 1989, George Soros admitted that he was involved in other communist countries, financially supporting opponents of these regimes. Given that Soros founded the Group for Social Dialogue event on the 31st of December 1989, and the Foundation Open Society in the early days of 1990, it is unlikely that the early members were found randomly off the street. It had been prepared since the time of Ceausescu regime.

According to a journalistic investigation by the Romanian Newspaper Adevarul, the early 90's were a time of ideological subjugation of Romania by the US. Thus the US created the first Romanian private TV Channel SOTI and allocated huge sums of money to the schooling of journalists. The Soros Foundation was the main contributor to this. All structures of political opposition including independent trade unions, student unions and political parties were funded by the US funds: Soros (Open Society), Freedom House, NED, National Republican Institute.

Thus the US funds and George Soros formed the major part of Romanian political class and journalist community. For example, the current Defense Minister Mihnea Motoc was granted at this time a scholarship at the George Washington University and since that time became a US agent of influence. As it was in other post-communist countries, Soros aimed to control the education system. Between 1990 and 1994, the Foundation was busy for the elaboration of "textbooks" - written by members of the Foundation - in collaboration with the Ministry of Education.

Soros’ first organization in Romania was Group for Social Dialogue (GDS) with founding members Silviu Brucan, Andrei Plesu, Gabriel Andreescu and Stelian Tanase. This organizations is strictly connected with Otpor in Serbia.

Officially, Soros founded in Bucharest in 1990, the foundation named after him: "Soros Foundation". Later, the name was changed: "Open Society Foundation" (FSD). It was among the first NGOs established in Romania.

The first direct representative of George Soros in Romania was Sandra Pralong (Sandra Marilyn Andreea Budis) a person who, not coincidentally, emigrated from Romania in the 70's and then returned after Ceausescu was overthrown . Sandra Pralong was an adviser to President Emil Constantinescu and today is an adviser to the current Romanian President Klaus Iohannis.

It is worth mentioning that the current Romanian prime-minister Dacian Ciolos, a former EU commissioner for agriculture, was a member of the “Friends of Europe", an association funded by the Open Society foundation. A fact he forgot to disclose to the Romanian people. However, his government was often referred to as “the Government of Soros” due to the fact that it is entirely formed from former NGO activists, Soros students, managers of multinational corporations and ardent Atlanticists. So, this country today is openly ruled by the American billionaire.

In addition to GDS and the Soros Foundation, the American financier has developed a myriad of NGO's related to his structures. Here are just a few names of them: "Soros Advising and Placement Center", "Soros Educational Advising Center", the "Union for the Reconstruction of Romania", "Centre for Partnership and Equality", "Center for Economic Development", Foundation "Concept "," Human Rights Center - Bucharest "," Association for Human Rights in Romania - Helsinki Committee (APADOR-CH) ". Association "Pro-Democracy", "Romanian Academic Society" etc., which in turn have given birth to other NGO's.

Among the members of these organizations you can easily find former ministers, advisers to Romanian presidents, directors of state institutions, influential journalists. Noteworthy is that three of the four Romanian presidents have had advisers or people form Soros network.

In reality it was a real network, "Soros Open Network Romania . Within this network operates a wide variety of organizations.The best known NGO's in the "Soros Open Network Romania" (SON) are:

APD. Founded in August 1990 by Adrian Mourousis in Brasov. It was funded, first, by the "National Democratic Institute", then entered the pyramid of SON. It has 30 branches across the country and over 1,000 members. Specialization: supervision of elections, a parallel vote count, etc. Organizes every year "Summer University in Balvanyos" (Covasna), along with "Liga Pro-Europa" and "Hungarian Youth Union" and the FIDESZ. 

"Pro-Democracy" is financed besides SON (ie FSD) by the "National Democratic Institute", "Freedom House", "USAID" (United States Agency for International Development) and "Westminster Foudation for Democracy".

"ROMANIAN ACADEMIC SOCIETY" (SAR). It is led by Alina Mungiu. Promoted the merger between Democratic Party and the National Liberal Party - which also realized. Thus National Liberal Party, Romanian historical party, which previously had serious souvereignist wing, was completely hijacked by Soros activists. Alina Mungiu is the anti-Orthodox activist and sister of Cristian Mungiu, Romanian film director, decorated by Oscar for his film justifying abortions.

Funding of Mungiu fund comes from the "Open Society Institute" and the "World Bank", "Freedom House" (James Woolsey), and "Marshall Fund".

"ASSOCIATION FOR HUMAN RIGHTS IN ROMANIA Helsinki Committee" (APADOR-CH). Led at first by Renate Weber, then in 1996 Monica Macovei.

Group for Social Dialogue "(GDS). Founded in 1990. GDS includes the people, described by the media as leading intellectuals of Romania today: Gabriela Adameşteanu Mariana Celac, Andrei Cornea Andrei Oisteanu Adrian Cioroianu etc.

Leading personalities in the network "Soros Open Network Romania" were Renate Weber, Alina Mungiu, Monica Macovei, Cristian Parvulesc, Mihai Razvan Ungureanu , Adrian Cioroianu etc.

One of the best examples of work of Soros network is the career of Mihai Razvan Ungureanu the current head of Romania Foreign Intelligence Service (SIE) and former Prime-minister of the state (2012) and Foreign Minister ( 2004-2007). From 1997 Razvan Ungureanu worked for FSD. This allowed him to benefit from scholarships and internships. Thus, in '90 -'91, Ungureanu received a scholarship to master in the St. Cross College by University of Oxford. This has allowed him to become later member of the prestigious "European Association for Jewish Studies at Oxford". In 1998, Ungureanu became a "Senior Fellow" at "Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies" within its "St. 

Cross College "(Oxford), the most famous center of this kind in the world. Receiving  the "Posen Award", Ungureanu also benefited from a scholarship for two years (1996/1997 and 1997/1998), the renowned " Hebrew University " ​​in Jerusalem. In 2000, Ungureanu claimed courses as "Senior Reader" to "NATO School" in Oberammergau (Germany) and in 2003 Ungureanu is "senior Reader" to "George C. Marshall Center for Security Studies" in Garmisch-Partenkirchen (Germany ). Mihai Razvan Ungureanu is just one example of the opportunities offered by FSD and George Soros to young Romanians. The same can be said of many others of those quoted above.

Delenda est Cathargo ("Carthage must be destroyed") RT are words that come down to us from ancient history. It is said they were spoken by the famed Roman statesman and orator Cato the Elder at the end of his speeches. They remain relevant today in the case of Trump, Russia and a Washington establishment that is intent on destroying both.

The Rome of our time is Washington, Russia is Carthage, and today's Cato the Elder is none other than US Senator John McCain, whose quest for conflict with Russia is unbounded.

Indeed for Mr. McCain the belief that Russia must be destroyed has been elevated to the status of a self evident and received truth.

Origins of the 'Dodgy Dossier': it was McCain who passed the "dodgy dossier" on Trump to the FBI, after receiving it from former UK ambassador to Russia, Sir Andrew Wood. Contained within the dossier is information purporting to reveal how Trump has been compromised by Russian intelligence over various sexual encounters with prostitutes in a Moscow hotel room. Compounding the scandal, adding to the lurid nature of it, are reports of the existence of a second Russian dossier on the President-elect. 

The dossier's originator has been revealed as former British MI6 intelligence officer Christopher Steele, who now runs a private intelligence company and has, according to reports, gone into hiding in the UK, supposedly fearing assassination by Russian agents.

The fact that Mr. Steele hasn't set foot in Russia for a number of years and reportedly, on behalf of Trump's enemies within the Republican Party establishment, paid for the information contained in the 35-page dossier, recently released with the caveat that its contents cannot be verified, should have been more than enough to have it instantly dismissed as, well, fake news?

In an article that appeared on the UK's Independent newspaper website — titled "The dodgy Donald Trump dossier reminds me of the row over Saddam Hussein and his fictitious weapons of mass destruction" — Patrick Cockburn writes, "I read the text of the dossier on Donald Trump's alleged dirty dealings with a scepticism that soon turned into complete disbelief." Later in the same article he observes, "In its determination to damage Trump, the US press corps has been happy to suspend disbelief in this dubious document."

More significant than the fact this dossier was not immediately dismissed is the timing of its emergence and subsequent publication by the US news site, BuzzFeed. It comes on the very cusp of President-elect Donald Trump's official inauguration as the 45th President of the United States on January 20th, and the very point at which his cabinet appointees were being grilled over their views of Russia, the threat Russia allegedly poses to the US and the West, during their official Senate confirmation hearings.

Political Coup Underway Against Trump: by now most people are aware, or at least should be, of Washington's long and ignoble history when it comes to fomenting, planning, supporting, and funding political and military coups around the world — in Central and Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, and elsewhere the CIA and other US agencies have brought down countless leaders and governments that have refused to toe the line when it comes to serving US interests.

In unprecedented fashion, what we have in this instance are those same deep state actors, working in conjunction with the US liberal establishment, currently engaged in a coup designed to destroy the Trump presidency — if not before it begins then certainly soon after, with the prospect of impeachment proceedings against him already being mooted in Washington circles.

During his recent press conference, Trump felt minded to declaim against Washington's bloated intelligence community, accusing it of releasing the dossier to the media, an allegation US intelligence chiefs have denied. The result is an unprecedented open war between the country's next president and his soon-to-be intelligence services that has pitched the country into a political crisis that grows deeper by the day.

The Power of the Military Industrial Complex: on the question of why the US deep state and Washington's liberal establishment is so intent on maintaining Russia in the role of deadly enemy, the answer is very simple — money. Huge and powerful economic and ideological interests are tied up in the new Сold War of the past few years. We're talking the country's previously mentioned gargantuan defense and intelligence budgets, continuing US support and financing of NATO, along with reason for the continued existence and funding of the vast network of political think tanks in Washington and throughout the West, all of which are committed to sustaining a status quo of US hegemony and unipolarity.

Russia's emergence as a strategic counterweight to the West in recent years has and continues to challenge this hitherto uncontested hegemony, providing lucrative opportunities for organizations, groups, and individuals with a vested interest in the resulting new Cold War. For those of a skeptical persuasion in this regard, I refer you to the chilling warning issued by former US President Dwight D. Eisenhower prior to leaving office in 1960 to make way for his replacement, John F. Kennedy.

In his televised farewell address to the American people in 1961, Eisenhower said, "We have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. Added to this, three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defense establishment. We annually spend on military security more than the net income of all United States corporations."
He continued: "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 recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society."

Finally, Eisenhower warned the American people how, "In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."

Though neoconservatives may no longer be in the driving seat in Washington, neoconservative ideas undoubtedly are. And prime among them is the idea that not only must Russia be destroyed but also anyone who would dare stand in the way of this narrative, up to and including President-elect Donald J. Trump.

Magia tipica italica: "puff... spariscono i fratelli Giulio e Francesca Maria Occhionero, superlaureati e oggi, paff.... arrivano gli hackers russi.". 

Gli italiani, lettori, ascoltatori, smartphonisti, videodipendenti, da ieri devono dimenticare le palle gonfie che ci hanno fatto i "giornalai italiani" sui due fratelli Occhionero, sostituendoli "voilà" con Putin e i suoi putinini hackeronisti. Minchia, che pazienza bovina ci avete popolo bùenista.

Solo i "giornalai italiani" riescono a montare tempeste tropicali, diluvi universali, glaciazioni e desertificazioni tra Bolzano e Ragusa. Solo loro riescono a far dimenticare alla Penisola italica, il giorno dopo, quanto sia stato il loro grado di vaneggiamento, ignoranza e/o,  "istruzioni" ricevute. Veniamo ai fatti.

È il 2 ottobre quando Giulio Occhionero, intercettato telematicamente dal 23 agosto 2016, comincia a sospettare di essere finito nel mirino. Da un solo giorno gli investigatori della Polizia postale hanno iniziato una intercettazione telematica attiva sul computer connesso alla linea fissa in casa, ma l’uomo è già in allerta: a un’intercettazione sembra che qualcuno lo abbia avvertito. 

Dopo aver effettuato una verifica sui certificati Microsoft invia una mail alla sorella Francesca Maria: “Ad ogni modo è valido pure sui server (Moscow) americani quindi dubito che abbiano dato ad un’autorità italiana il privilegio di infettare macchine americane“. Lei risponde subito dopo: “Bravo! Possiamo tranquillizzarci (un po’)

Il 10 gennaio scorso, la Polizia postale, ha arrestato i due fratelli per avere hackerato le e-mail di notabili politici come il presidente della Banca centrale europea, Mario Draghi, e l'ex presidente del Consiglio, Matteo Renzi, del ministro degli Esteri Gentiloni e ancora decine, centinaia di altre importanti utenze istituzionali.

Fosse per il cognome dei due fratelli (Occhionero) arrestati per cyberspionaggio, per il programma informatico, che hanno usato e che dà il nome all’inchiesta della Procura di Roma:" Eye Piramide".

Naturalmente è doveroso attendere gli sviluppi giudiziari dell’indagine del Centro Nazionale Anticrimine Informatico per la Protezione delle Infrastrutture Critiche. Il C.N.A.I.P.I.C. 

L'’impressione è di essere di fronte ad una spy story di primo livello. Dove due professionisti (lui ingegnere nucleare, lei cittadina USA che ha lavorato in Italia come consulente del governo americano) residenti a Londra e domiciliati a Roma, tra il 2011 ed il 2016 sono entrati nel cuore dello Stato e, più in generale, nel sistema di potere e nella politica italiana, istituzioni comprese. 

Incamerando – attraverso un elenco di quasi ventimila username – una massa enorme di dati e informazioni sensibili, civili e militari, archiviati e custoditi in alcuni server negli Stati Uniti con un metodo di catalogazione preciso e articolato.

Matteo Renzi e Mario Monti, dell’ex Governatore della Banca d’Italia e oggi Presidente della BCE, Mario Draghi, e dell’ex Comandante generale della Guardia di Finanza, Saverio Capolupo, per disegnare il profilo dell’attacco volto, scrivono i magistrati, al «procacciamento di notizie concernenti la sicurezza dello Stato con accesso abusivo al sistema informatico e intercettazione illecita di comunicazioni informatiche». 

E basta ricordare che anche l’ENAV, la società che controlla e garantisce il traffico aereo civile in Italia, dunque un’infrastruttura di assoluto interesse nazionale strategico, è stata oggetto dell’hackeraggio che nel marzo scorso ha fatto scattare l’allarme.

Possibile siano stati solo una coppia di professionisti (lui, massone molto interessato ai giochi di potere al vertice della Massoneria) svelti di mente e di mano e con buone relazioni sociali che con il loro “Eye Pyramid” hanno messo in piedi per fini di lucro personale uno spionaggio di questa portata? È possibile che un sistema diffuso di potere con al centro lo Stato e le sue funzioni più delicate, per cinque anni, non sia riuscito a sventare l’aggressione, alzando di fatto bandiera bianca di fronte agli Occhionero?

Ruslan Stoyanov, top manager della Kaspersky Lab, la più grande azienda russa che opera nel settore della cybersicurezza e degli antivirus, è stato arrestato a Mosca lo scorso dicembre anche se la notizia è trapelata solo ora

A renderlo noto è stata la stessa società, specificando però che le indagini sull'uomo sono relative a un periodo che precede la sua assunzione e che il «lavoro svolto dalla nostra squadra di ricercatori, il Computer Incidents Investigation Team, non è coinvolto da questi sviluppi».
