Facebook, the CIA, and the Clintons

This article recounts key events along a time line that stretches from 1986 to the present. Follow the bouncing ball.
Since Facebook went public with an IPO (Initial Public Offering) of stock in 2012, I’ve been following the trail of its stock price.
In 2012, I wrote:
‘But now the Facebook stock has tanked. On Friday, August 17 [2012], it weighed in at half its initial IPO price. For the first time since the IPO, venture-capital backers were legally permitted to sell off their shares, and some did, at a loss.’
‘Articles have begun appearing that question Zuckerberg’s ability to manage his company. ‘Experts’ are saying he should import a professional team to run the business side of things and step away.’
‘This has the earmarks of classic shakeout and squeeze play… First, [insiders] drive down the price of the stock, then they trade it at low levels that discourage and demoralize public investors, who sell their shares… As the stock continues to tank, the insiders quietly buy up as much of it as they can. Finally, when the price hits a designated rock bottom, they shoot it up all the way to new highs and win big.’
In 2013, I followed up and wrote: ‘Facebook launched its IPO and went public on May 18, 2012. The opening stock price was 42 dollars a share.’

The Bureaucrats Will Scuttle Trump’s Trillion-Dollar Infrastructure Boondoggle

Pres. Trump has proposed a $1 trillion boondoggle. He wants to spend this money on infrastructure. This is going to put Obama’s shovel-ready, anti-recession boondoggle to shame.
Only it isn’t going to happen. It didn’t happen for Obama, either. Here is what happened — or didn’t happen.
Back in 2009, former President Barack Obama made some lofty promises about the infrastructure overhaul that his $800 billion economic stimulus plan would provide. Obama used the phrase ‘shovel-ready projects’ in reference to construction projects that could begin right away. In the end, however, only $98.3 billion of the $800 billion stimulus was dedicated to transportation and infrastructure. Of that $98.3 billion, only about $27.5 billion was actually spent on transportation infrastructure projects. Why?
‘The problem is that spending it out takes a long time, because there’s really nothing – there’s no such thing as shovel-ready projects,’ Obama said in a 2010 interview with the New York Times.
When it comes to economic stimulus, local governments may take years to begin actual construction even once they receive funding. The reason why such a small portion of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 ended up spent on infrastructure is that the projects are simply too slow to get off the ground to provide meaningful near-term stimulus.
That was Obama, who had a majority in both Houses of Congress and an electorate in panic mode over a recession. Here is what Trump has.
First, he is so tied up with special prosecutors and investigators that he is never going to get anything through Congress. For the next 3 1/2 years, there will be no major Trump political victories. Count on it.
Second, bureaucracies at the state and federal level are going to see to it that not one of his projects is launched, let alone completed. Even if he gets this boondoggle through Congress, which he won’t, it will do his legacy no good. Another President, probably elected in 2024, will get the credit. But I may be too optimistic. Maybe it will be the President who is elected in 2032.
Trump is frustrated. I can hardly blame him. In a recent post on the White House website, he offered this cry of woe.

U.S. AUTHORIZES $12 BILLION ARMS DEAL WITH QATAR

Just days after condemning the Gulf monarchy for its ties to terrorism, the Trump administration on Wednesday inked a deal with Qatar for three dozen American fighter jets, valued at $12 billion.
‘We are pleased to announce today the signing of the letter of offer and acceptance for the purchase of the F-15QA fighter jets, with an initial cost of $12 billion dollars,’ the Qatari Defense Minister said in a statement.
‘We believe that this agreement will propel Qatar’s ability to provide for its own security while also reducing the burden placed upon the United States military in conducting operations against violent extremism,’ the statement continued.
The deal was signed at a meeting between Qatari Defense Minister Khalid al-Attiyah and U. S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis amid a diplomatic spat between several Gulf states.
Meshal Hamad al-Thani, Qatari ambassador to the U. S., posted a picture of the meeting on Twitter, claiming the deal would create ‘60,000 new jobs in 42 states across the United States.’

In Major Win For Beijing Panama Establishes Ties With China, Cuts Relations With Taiwan

While Megyn Kelly’s interview with Russian President (and all around global bad guy if one were to believe the daily barrage of leftist headlines) Vladimir Putin did not raise the ire of advertisers, it appears her interview with right-wing provocateur Alex Jones has lurched from social media firestorm to real-world dollars and cents for NBC News.
The sit-down has been promoted as a discussion about ‘controversies and conspiracies.’
In a video promoting the interview, Jones talks about the 9/11 attacks as an ‘inside job.’ In the clip, Kelly also brings up Sandy Hook, saying: ‘When you say parents faked their children’s deaths, people get very angry.’ Jones replies: ‘But they don’t get angry about half-a-million dead Iraqis from the sanctions.’

70 Years Since the Marshall Plan

Seventy years ago on June 5, US Secretary of State George Marshall gave a speech at Harvard University. Few speeches in modern times have had as much geopolitical consequence. In just eight paragraphs, Marshall made the case for significant US involvement in Europe’s economic reconstruction after World War II.
Within 10 months, the United States passed the Foreign Assistance Act of 1948. Better known as the Marshall Plan, it provided over $13 billion to 16 European countries (approximately $150 billion in 2017 dollars). According to the Congressional Research Service, the annual appropriation in 1949 alone accounted for 12% of the entire US federal budget.
The Marshall Plan became a significant instrument of American power. It represented a substantial sacrifice for the US, but one that paid dividends long after the US stopped providing funds to Marshall Plan recipients.
At a time when the world is divided on the merits of nationalism versus internationalism, it’s worth reflecting on why the Marshall Plan worked.
Strategy, Not Charity
Marshall made two key points in his speech to Harvard graduates. The first was the call for the rise of technocracy. Marshall said rebuilding Europe was a task of such ‘enormous complexity’ that it had become difficult for ‘the man in the street’ to make sense of the situation and what had to be done. His second point was that rebuilding Europe was in the United States’ economic interest. The return of ‘normal economic health in the world’ was the precondition for political stability and peace. It couldn’t be offered piecemeal; it had to be backed by the full faith of the US government.

The Shocking Trigger Behind Today’s Gulf Scandal: Qatar Paid Al-Qaeda, Iran $1BN In Hostage Deal

The FT has unveiled what its believes is the key trigger behind the shocking overnight collapse in diplomatic relations between Qatar and its Gulf neighbors. According to the FT, the catalyst that forced the Saudis and their allies to unveil the cut in diplomatic and economic ties, is that Qatar allegedly paid up to $1 billion to Iran and al-Qaeda affiliates “to release members of the Gulf state’s royal family who were kidnapped in Iraq while on a hunting trip, according to people involved in the hostage deal“; the secret deal was allegedly one of the triggers behind Gulf states’ dramatic decision to cut ties with Doha.
The details of the payoff: “around $700m was paid both to Iranian figures and the regional Shia militias they support, according to regional government officials. They added that $200m to $300m went to Islamist groups in Syria, most of that to Tahrir al-Sham, a group with links to al-Qaeda.”
A regional Arab official said the total paid to jihadi groups was closer to $300m. ‘So, if you add that up to the other $700m they paid to Iran and its proxies, that means Qatar actually spent about a billion dollars on this crazy deal,’ he said.
* * *
The Iraqi Shia militia commanders in Iraq, all from hardline Iranian-backed groups, said that, to their knowledge, Iran had obtained around $400m after giving them a payment they would not disclose. They agreed to share some details because they were unhappy about their share of the payment.
‘They [the Iranians] took the lion’s share,’ said a member of one of the Iranian-backed Shia militias in Iraq. ‘That’s caused some of us to be frustrated, because that was not the deal.’

JPM: “There Is A Cloud Hanging Over The Equity Rally, But Stocks Don’t Seem To Mind (For Now)”

As an ISIS-inspired insurgency rages in the country’s south, Philippines’ authorities are assuring the public that an attack on a luxury resort in Manila that left more than three dozen dead wasn’t an act of terrorism, but was, in fact, a robbery.
A gunman armed with a “baby armalite” rifle burst into the Resorts World Manila casino on Friday and started firing off shots and setting gaming tables alight on Friday, authorities said, before making his way to the back of the casino where he stole several million dollars’ worth of gambling chips. Most of the dead suffocated on the thick smoke, according to Reuters. However, despite authorities assurances, the high death toll and brazen nature of the attack suggest that terrorism may have been the underlying motivation. US terrorism monitor the Site Intelligence Group said an Islamic State-linked Filipino operative claimed ‘lone wolf soldiers’ of ISIS were responsible for the attack, according to the Guardian.
“All indications point to a criminal act by an apparently emotionally disturbed individual,” Ernesto Abella, a spokesman for Duterte, told a news conference. “Although the perpetrator gave warning shots, there apparently was no indication that he wanted to do harm or shoot anyone.”
The gunman killed himself in his hotel room after being shot and wounded by resort security, police and Resorts World management said. A second “person of interest” who was in the casino at the time was cooperating with the investigation, Reuters reported.

ABSOLUTE SUBMISSION: Trump Bows to Neocon Orthodoxy

Consortium News Exclusive: In his Mideast trip to Saudi Arabia and Israel, President Trump sought some political safe harbor by tacking toward neocon orthodoxy and jettisoning his campaign promises of a more rational strategy, writes Daniel Lazare.
With astounding precision, Donald Trump zeroed in on the worst possible Middle East policy option in his recent trip to Saudi Arabia and made it his own. He rebuffed the efforts of Iran’s newly elected moderate government to open up communications with the West and instead deepened America’s alliances with decrepit autocratic regimes across the Persian Gulf.
Turning up his nose at Iran – a rising young power – he embraced Saudi Arabia, which is plainly on its last legs. It was a remarkable display – rather like visiting a butcher shop and passing up a fresh steak for one that’s rancid and smelly and buzzing with flies.
Saudi Arabia is not just any tired dictatorship with an abysmal human-rights record but one of the most spectacularly dysfunctional societies in history. It takes in half a billion dollars a day in oil revenue, yet is so profligate that it could run out of money in half a decade. It sits atop 18 percent of the world’s proven oil reserves, yet is so wasteful that, at current rates, it will become a net importer by the year 2030.
Its king travels with a thousand-person retinue wherever he goes while his son, Deputy Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman, plunked down $550 million not long ago when a 440-foot yacht caught his eye in the south of France. Yet this pair of royal kleptocrats dares preach austerity at a time when as much as 25 percent of the population lives on less than $17 a day in trash-strewn Third World slums.
Similarly, Saudi Arabia’s appetite for high-tech weaponry is such that in 2015 it became the largest arms importer in the world. Yet its military is so inept that it is unable to subdue ragtag Houthi rebels in neighboring Yemen or even stop them from raiding deep inside Saudi territory and launching regular missile attacks.

Another Embarrassing Shoe Set to Drop for Trump and His Lawyers

Two of the most intuitive members of Congress, Senator Elizabeth Warren and Congressman Elijah Cummings, sent a letter to the Comptroller General of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) all the way back on November 23, 2016 demanding an investigation of President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team expenditures, business conflicts and communications with foreign leaders. If the duo had been peering into a crystal ball, they couldn’t have delivered a more prescient recital of today’s unprecedented train wreck in the White House.
The GAO report is set for draft release to relevant Federal agencies this month. Expect leaks before its official public release.
The GAO is the nonpartisan Congressional watchdog that investigates, at the beckoning of members of Congress, how the Federal government spends taxpayer dollars. GAO says its mission is to ‘provide Congress with timely information that is objective, fact-based, nonpartisan, nonideological, fair, and balanced.’ For the most part, it succeeds in its mission although Wall Street On Parade has noticed a certain timidity creeping into its work.

Reality: ‘Employers’ Have Been Priced Out

Folks, I want you to read this again.
Specifically:
We have an opiod epidemic in this country in no small part because of the loss of jobs available to blue-collar workers — people who are not rocket scientists; people with no hope, no future and no job prospects often turn to intoxication. There’s a lot of people in this country facing this situation today; most people fall under the “average” area of the bell curve when it comes to intelligence. Their jobs went overseas or simply disappeared not only because of bad trade deals but because the medical system got parasitic to the point that it now consumes nearly one dollar in five in the United States. Laws such as ERISA, EMTALA and similar anti-discrimination statutes along with this parasitic sector of our economy mean that a small business offering health coverage as a benefit will be instantly bankrupted by one person who gets hired and has a $100,000/year chronic condition, and the owner of said business is forced by law to conspire with the ill applicant that comes in his door seeking work to screw his other employees.
The result? You’re nuts to hire your first employee and you’re definitely nuts to violate any of the thresholds that trigger various requirements in laws when it comes to benefit packages and similar.
One-person businesses are great but they need to grow into 5, 10, 20 and 50 person businesses for the United States to be great again.
They can’t under the present system because just one event completely out of the owner’s control destroys everything he or she has built, it is trivial for anyone who has such a condition to target said company and if they do there is nothing that either the employer or other employees can do about it.
Do you think this applies only to small firms?

Russia And Iran Sign Oil-For-Goods Barter Deal; Escape Petrodollar

Iran signed an agreement with Russia under which it has broken free from the petrodollar, and will “sell”, or rather barter crude oil to Russia in exchange for products. The announcement was made by Iran’s Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh, as reported by Russia’s RIA and TASS news agencies.
“The deal has been concluded. We are just waiting for the implementation from the Russian side. We have no difficulties; we signed the contract, everything is coordinated between the parties. We are waiting for Russian oil companies to send tankers,’ he said, as quoted by Russian news agencies. While sanctions against Iran have been lifted, restrictions on trade in US dollars for the country’s banks remain, making it difficult to sell oil on the open market.
As reported here just over three years ago, the $20 billion agreement was initially signed in April 2014 when Iran was under Western sanctions over its nuclear program. Russian traders were to participate in the selling of Iranian oil. In exchange, Iran wanted essential goods and technology from Russia.

Addiction, Trump’s Budget And Justified Anger

Let’s talk about the screamfest that is already starting, amplified in the media, about Trump’s budget and the cuts to Medicaid that are embodied in it.
Oh, cuts you say? Yes, cuts. See, Trump knows as do the other politicians that medical spending growing at 9% a year, which is the pattern over the last three decades, will bankrupt the United States. Congress pretends this “won’t happen” but I can tell you with utter certainty they are well-aware of it and in fact senate staffers admitted to me, in person, that they both were aware of it and intentionally ignoring it roughly five years ago.
What Trump is trying to do with his budget, and what the Republicans and Democrats eventually will do is toss the grenade to the States. Medicaid is the vehicle to do so; it is a federal and state joint program, so tossing off “block grants” to the states which are an effectively-fixed chunk of cash throws half the ticking bomb at them and thus blows up both federal and state budgets instead of just the federal side.
Isn’t that special?
You, for your part, will not and have not bombarded and demanded, under penalty of whatever action is necessary to enforce the demand, that both federal and state law enforcement go after the medical industry for practices that in any other business would land people in prison immediately. Specifically, refusal to quote a price, discriminating in price between like kind and quantity of purchase by a factor of 10, 100 or even 1,000% or more based on “what sort of insurance” someone has (or whether they have it at all), billing people for things they never consented to, billing people for events that didn’t happen or products that weren’t even used, allowing a doctor to call sticking his head into a room and saying “hi” as a “consultation” and billing that at several hundred dollars and more. You allow drug companies to take a drug that costs $500 for a year’s supply in other developed, first-world nations and charge $70,000 for it here instead of such an action being deemed an unlawful restraint of trade made illegal in laws that are over 100 years old resulting in indictments.

MANCHESTER’S KNOWN WOLF: Watched by MI5 With Ties to NATO backed Terror in Libya – What Does It All Mean?

Another day, another conspiratorial crime. In this case, the public was witness to yet another know wolf terror attack allegedly carried out by an ‘ISIS-inspired’ individual who as with other cases, was under the gaze of MI5. The man named in the Manchester attack, Salman Abedi, has also been tied to a terror group supported by NATO in Libya that ousted Muammar el-Qaddafi in 2011.
QUESTION: Is the Manchester attack simply blowback from security operations gone arwy – or is it more likely that this latest terror event provides further evidence of complicity on behalf of West in the ‘War On Terror’ era?
Though many are still unsettled in the wake of the Manchester arena bombing – key questions have emerged following this latest act of terror in the West.
NOTE: One cannot ignore the strange circumstances and timing surrounding the apparent tragedy in Manchester, as it arrived on the heels of a monolithic arms deals with Saudi Arabia worth $110 billion dollars that will total $350 billion over the next 10 years. The questionable arms deal has also dovetailed US aspirations for an ‘Arab NATO’ headquartered in Saudi Arabia, the largest state-sponsor of terror in the world.

RED HERRING: What’s Behind the Wave of Ransomware Attacks Linked to NSA Hacking Tools?

In this age of hyper-real media propaganda, some stories published by mainstream media whether true or not, can be used as a ‘red herring’ to provide an all to convenient mask for other politically charged news releases.
In fact, the very same day as the viral spread of WannaCry, the United States was said to have nearly completed a series of arms deals with Saudi Arabia worth $110 billion dollars and some $350 billion total over the next 10 years. This dovetailed the Trump administration’s decision to announce a ‘vision for a new regional security architecture’ for an ‘Arab NATO’ headquartered in Saudi Arabia, the largest state-sponsor of terror in the world.
Furthermore, the largest financial support for Al Qaeda linked terror operations involving Sunni extremists worldwide – has come from Saudi Arabia, with other GCC allies providing logistical support.
From 2015 to today, Saudi Arabia has breached international law with an ongoing bombardment of Yemen and more recently it emerged that Saudi government forces began a shocking military offensive against its own citizens in the eastern province of Qatif in the Awamiyah town.
A recently released Stockholm study yielded some stunning conclusions concerning arms exports from the US and Europe, in addition to arms imports acquired by Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, most notably Saudi Arabia. According to this latest report from 2012-16, there has been the highest arms transfer volume over a 5-year stretch since the end of the Cold War.

Conspiracy Unravels: Seth Rich May Have Been Killed For Ties To Wikileaks: ‘We Were Told To Stand Down On This Case’

In July of 2016 high level Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was killed on the streets of Washington, D. C.
Police investigators say that Rich was killed in a robbery, but skeptical investigative reporters across the internet began to look into the suspicious circumstances surrounding his murder almost immediately.
The early morning killing on a deserted D. C. street came amid a storm of leaks and hacks involving DNC emails that showed collusion between Democratic Party heads and the Clinton campaign. As well, Clinton herself was under extreme pressure surrounding leaked disclosures about her physical health, scandals involving Clinton Global Initiative pay-to-play schemes and an unsecured email server that may have exposed classified information.
That there were no suspects and no motive in Rich’s death immediately raised questions. As outlandish as it may have sounded, the combative political climate at the time led many to ask whether or not the rising Democratic Party star was eliminated because he either knew too much, was sharing information with Wikileaks, or both.
Adding fuel to the fire, in August Julian Assange himself alluded to the fact that Seth may have been the secret source that had leaked gigabytes of data to Wikileaks, a move that would have surely created many enemies in the billion dollar-plus election campaign.

U.S., SAUDI ARABIA TO NEGOTIATE BILLIONS IN ARMS DEALS

Administration officials are attempting to get tens of billions of dollars in arms deals to Saudi Arabia approved ahead of President Trump’s visit to the country later this month, Reuters reports.
Saudi Arabia will be the initial stop on Trump’s first official trip overseas as president, where he hopes to also sell his counter-terrorism strategy to foreign heads of state he is scheduled to meet. Other destinations of the trip include Brussels, Israel, and the Vatican.
The United States is Saudi Arabia’s main arms dealer, especially in recent years. From a $29.4 billion sale of F-15 fighter jets in 2011, to another $1.1 billion deal for tanks and other military equipment last year, Saudi Arabia has amassed quite an arsenal of hi-tech American weaponry. The Saudis, in fact, were the top recipient of U. S. Arms from 2011-2015, and likely remain high on that list.

Washington’s Criminal Activities Are Only Getting Messier

21st Century Wire says…
It was a major scandal that broke out in 2009. Academi, formerly known as Blackwater, were accused of murdering civilians and smuggling weapons in Middle East ops.
Further to the prosecution of four Blackwater employees five years later, guilty of killing 17 Iraqi civilians in Baghdad during one spate of violence, there has been a historical boom of private contractors occurring since Iraq and Afghanistan incursions began.
More on this report from New Eastern Outlook…
The unpunished slaughter of thousands of civilians in Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan carried out by the US over the course of the last decade is now being gradually replaced by new types of crimes committed by Washington’s henchmen in the course of its ongoing instances of armed aggression against sovereign states.
As it’s been reported by Bloomberg with a special reference to AP, a well-known American contractor firm Sallyport Global has recently been engaged in a number of illegal operations in Baghdad’s vicinity. According to the report, its employees would get engaged in alcohol smuggling and slave trade. It’s curious that Sallyport Global’s staff would overload cargo planes with illegal alcohol so hard that they could barely fly, while stealing generators and armored off-road vehicles from the Balad air base that they were dispatched to protect. Bloomberg would note that some of company’s employees were also involved in selling local residents to sex slavery.
Meanwhile, it is a well-known fact that Sallyport Global received 686 million dollars from the US government to fulfill a number of missions in the best interests of the American people. Or at least it was supposed to.

SYRIA: Aleppo Based Journalist, Khaled Iskef, Exposes White Helmets as Nusra Front Civil Defence

21st Century Wire says…
The storm of evidence against the NATO and Gulf state multi-million-dollar construct, the White Helmets, is gathering and causing massive schisms in public opinion in the West. Many are now awakening to one of the most powerful ‘soft power’ scams in history, one that has maintained the dirty war on Syria with terrifying consequences for the Syrian people.
Now the ‘saviour of all mankind’ fantasy is being exposed on a daily basis. Evidence left behind by the so called ‘humanitarian’ group in their haste to abandon Aleppo with Nusra Front-led terrorists, is revealing their funding, their extremist roots and allegiances to mass murdering extremist groups, also funded by the US, UK, EU and Gulf states.
