3 Corrupt Facts Trump/Pompeo $Greed in Venezuela USA Coup/Koch Brothers and War with China

Confidential Summary: CIWARS Intelligence Services

Pompeo/Trump’s greed for money and war against China drives the United States policy in Venezuela.

Here are the facts.

1. The Koch Brothers-Pompeo connection. Venezuela owes the Koch Brothers–an oil and gas company and significant right-wing GOP political supporter–$409 million dollars over a nationalization dispute of Koch Brothers assets in Venezuela. The Koch Family is Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s largest financial benefactor (See Federal Election Commission data) to the tune of millions of dollars. Koch Brothers are located in Kansas, Mike Pompeo’s home state, and own Pompeo.

2. Venezuela owes mostly United States investors over $65 billion in defaulted bond investments. A well known Trump supporting lawyer involved in recovering the defaulted investment has stated, “There will be no debt restructing for Venezuela until there is regime change. It is clear that Trump/Pompeo has chosen the coup route to recover USA investment.

3. This is also about China. Venezuela owes China billions and China has already cut a favorable deal to recover that debt. Today, China takes about 28 percent of Venezuela’s oil production to pay that debt. Trump and Pompeo are dedicated to hindering China’s growth and cutting off oil is effective. USA coup in Venezuela is just as much about hurting China as recovering money for USA investment bankers and Koch Brothers.

Book Review: Spy Tells All How To Avoid Surveillance

British philosopher Jeremy Bentham wrote about Panopticon, the open air prison, where there are no doors or bars because the guards are constantly watching. Michel Foucault applied this to the modern surveillance state. Today America is the embodiment of Panopticon. The government with its tech partners like Google, Facebook, Amazon and your internet provider know every move you make. It is control of your actions because you know you are being watched.

William Church in his bestselling Citizen’s Privacy Manual provides the detailed method to avoid this surveillance. It deserves its five star rating on Amazon with reviewers calling it the “real deal.”

Church’s solution is practical and simple: let the government watch the “public” you while you operate as a private “you”. He provides detailed explanation how to establish a private you, how to communicate so that you can never be traced back to the public you, and the tools you need to a avoid all types of surveillance.

The methods are low cost–under $250–and readily available without any technical knowledge. His method can be followed anywhere in the world at any time. Church warns that encryption is worthless because it is the first thing governments look for and most important it is widely known encryption can be cracked. So called whistler-blower sites are full blown traps because the government can easily trace you by ISP traffic or simply get a warrant.

These methods are ideal for business people who want to conduct negotiations away from a corporate discovery framework. Ideal for private communications that you want to separate from your private life.

Citizen’s Privacy Manual is available on Amazon as both a paperback or ebook;

A Logical Case for Political Assassination: Jonathan Swift’s Modest Proposal

In a democracy, even writing the word assassination in a positive context is a repugnant activity. However, three things are very clear when examining the history of assassination in democracies: first, democracy does not end with an assassination. Second, America is sufficiently resilient to treat the act of assassination as another form of government change not an abnormal process, and some democracies might even prefer political violence to voting. Third, the political assassination many times ushered in a period of change that countered the previous political direction.

Lets get the first ugly truth out of the way. Americans accept assassination as a form of change. In America’s short history—only 230 years and 45 presidents—the reality is staggering. Four presidents have been assassinated while in office, one president was shot and survived, seven presidents have been shot at or in the case of George W Bush had a grenade thrown at him, and four presidents had creditable threats disrupted. Two potential presidential candidates—George Wallace and Robert Kennedy—were killed or wounded as they rose to power and challenged the political power structure and one survived a political assassination attempt—Theodore Roosevelt—and would go on to be president.

This is not ancient history. Two of the presidents with the most attempts on their lives are Clinton and Obama with four each. The total number of assassinations, attempted assassinations, and credibly thwarted attempts is over 21 out of 45 presidents. In other words, the American people attempted to change the political process with violence nearly half as many times as they peacefully elected a president.

Americans believe in political violence. A fast historical search of political assassinations in the United States revealed the names of over 50 high-level politicians assassinated in office to include Louisiana’s Huey Long and George Moscone and Harvey Milk. This is not even counting the politicians wounded like Representatives Gifford and Scalise in recent history.

For comparison, the United Kingdom, another long-term democracy has had one Prime Minister assassinated in the same period—Spenser Perceval in 1812 and none in modern history. The only possible conclusion is that political assassination is not abhorrent; instead, it is steeped in the political psyche of America. America’s political assassinations do not lead to a revolution like other countries. American assassinations are not a prelude to a military coup, nor a suspension of the democracy process. No, they are followed by a peaceful election.

The only possible conclusion is that Americans see political violence—perhaps violence in general—as part of the political discussion with shared space with the voting process. Many times America’s mass killings resemble political statements as in the Charleston church killings and the Pulse nightclub and the commentary comes closer to a political discussion than an exploration of mental health issues that might drive a killer.

If terrorism is defined as a violent act designed to influence a political process, then the only possible conclusion is that America’s core political foundation is built on terrorism and not elections. And this terrorism has been normalized in America like no other democracy on earth.

Therefore, Americans view political assassination as a natural political process. However, it is important to note that political assassinations live in a bifurcated space (until now); on one hand illegal and punishable by death and on the other hand a cultural norm. As then candidate Trump famously said, “I could shoot someone (perhaps a political foe) on Fifth Avenue and get away with it”, his supporters chanted USA USA. Since the Justice Department has ruled that presidents can not be indicted then this would make political assassination an acceptable American act if done by those with privilege and power.

The Second Proof: Political Assassination Is More Effective than Elections

America’s most trusted ally in the Middle East—Israel–is another democracy that has found the value of political assassination. In 1995, Israel had a Prime Minister dedicated to resolving the Israeli Palestinian issues. Yitzhak Rabin had been elected in 1992 on peace platform and during his tenure signed the ground-breaking Oslo Accords and Jordan Peace Pact.

In November 1995, a right wing Israeli student assassinated Yitzhak Rabin. This was immediately followed by a series of suicide bombings—blamed on Hamas but never proven—which turned the Israeli mood away from the peace accords especially when a up and coming right-wing politician name Netanyahu fanned the flames of discord. Without Rabin to provide a passionate defense of peace, Netanyahu turned Israel to the right and what has become over twenty years of increased tension and constant war.

The political assassination of Rabin—even though indisputably done by an Israeli not an Arab—opened the eyes of Israelis to Netanyahu’s unopposed view that peace was not possible and what could not be done by a democratic election was accomplished by assassination.

Trump and His Generals: A Fish Rots from the Head

The American public are assaulted each day with pictures of President Trump surrounded by US military generals or senior law enforcement. They serve as a backdrop at many of his news conferences and it displays the marriage of the most corrupt president in US history with the most corrupt military in American history.

Generals like Michael Flynn have been caught lying to investigators and possibly working for a foreign government while a senior security official, in another time and place this would be called treason. General Kelly demonstrated his unwavering Trump support by attacking a member of Congress, which is a direct violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). General Petraeus, ex-CIA director, was convicted of leaking Top Secret documents. Another General was recently court-martialed for years of sexual assault on a child.

Sexual assaults are at an all time high in the US military. Since 2013, military investigators documented at least 500 cases of serious misconduct by generals, admirals and senior officers. One general ran a swinging sex club and lived rent free in the home of a defense contractor.

This corruption and misconduct goes all the way to the top. In 2017, six generals were punished for misconduct. A member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff was demoted for sexual harassment. General Wayne Grigsby, 1st Infantry commander, was punished for sexual harassment which displays a complete breakdown in discipline in the US military.

This comes with a period of documented lack of readiness by the military, a shortage of Air Force pilots, falling Army recruitment numbers, and continual naval and aviation accidents leading to the unnecessary death of service members. Nothing displays this lack of command discipline that the death of four special operators killed in Niger last year and a court martial found the officers in charge of a failure of command.

General Mattis was aware of this trend. Before being forced out by President Trump he commissioned a study that showed the failure of the military command to enforce discipline. Court-martials were down 70 percent over the past 10 years and the lessor category of administrative punishments was down by 40 percent.

The military command corruption shows up with disastrous results. Troops guarding America’s nuclear arsenal at F E Warren Air Force Base in March 2016 were convicted of taking LSD on and off duty. This unit managed a third of the US Minuteman missiles. Another group of airmen at Malmstrom Air Base ran a drug ring between 2011 and 2014.

Corruption in America’s nuclear force runs deep. In 2014, 34 nuclear Air Force officers were convicted of cheating on readiness and proficiency tests putting the nuclear arsenal in jeopardy. The US Navy has not been exempt for the Trump era corruption.

Navy Captain Heather Cole funneled nearly a million dollars to her own manufacturing company when managing US defense contracts. Another Navy officer stole 2.7 million dollars to feed his gambling habit.

Is it a coincidence that the most corrupt president in US history has married himself to the most corrupt US military in history?

Flash Cable: Did USA Stage Coup in Gabon

The new Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan has a choice today. He should either admit he is totally over his head for the job or admit he is willing to lie for President Trump to Congress and US people.

Deep Background Information

  • President Bongo is a long term dictator in the West African country of Gabon
  • Last year President Bongo on a visit to Saudi Arabia was described as having a heart attack; however, MBS has detained Lebanese President Hariri, assasinated US based journalist, invaded Bahrain, and blockaded Qatar. It is clear MBS is a President Trump henchman.
  • Oil production in Gabon has steadily fallen over last decade threatening US/French financial interests
  • France has 300 troops stationed in Gabon
  • December 2018 had constant demonstrations and civil disruptions in Gabon and the country verged on a coup the entire month.

Gabon SitRep

USA Military Assessment

Current situation is fluid and hostile. On Friday 4 January 2019 President Trump, as required by law, notified Speaker Pelosi of the deployment of 80 combat troops to Gabon with appropriate equipment to follow. The stated purpose was the potential unrest in the Democratic Republic of Congo on the eve of election results.

It appears the unit was from the Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force-Crisis Response unit and not from the Marine Security Augmentaiton Unit, which is a backup unit to protect US embassies. (unconfirmed). Nor did they deploy the hyper-capable Fleet Anti-Terrorism Security Teams (FAST). (unconfirmed)

The distinction is critical because these units are specially trained in EXFIL and intense combat situations, which would be required if the deployment was to protect US citizens. Whereas, the deployed units do not appear to have this special training.

DRC Election Sitrep

After 17 years of strongman rule Joseph Kabila agreed to elections in the DRC. After postponements and fraud, a vote was held and the results were due to be announced on 6 January 2019. Kabila’s strongest opposition and most explosive region is the Eastern Congo which is over 3000 miles from Kinshasa. This analyst worked in Kinshasa and can verify it is a heavily garrisoned city by friendly Kabila troops; however, Eastern Congo is highly disputed with opposing militia and the FDLR which are the remains of the former Rwandan government that commited the 1994 genocide.

It is unlikely that a force of 80 combat troops would be effective in Kinshasa. First, Kabila’s troops would be openly hostile. Second, Kinshasa is a slum ridden urban centre where ten thousand demonstrators could easily flood the streets within an hour, which would, without much effort, overwhelm any USA force. (Think Blackhawk Down.)

Third, the most likely point of conflict will be in Eastern Congo over 3,000 miles away and the USA has a very capable force in Uganda near the Eastern Congo border. The USA Uganda force (thought to be primarily US Army Special Forces) would be the most likely deployable force for Eastern Congo violence.

Based on the above information, this analyst believes the 80 person force recently deployed to Gabon was targeted at Gabon and not the DRC elections violence.

Gabon SitRep

Within 24 hours of the US troops arrival announcement, five Gabon senior officers staged a coup attempt. This analyst believe it is important to note that US military is currently training Gabonese troops. USA has access to top levels of command. As part of its mission, it regularly performs leadership assessments. There is zero chance that this came as a surprise to USA military command.

The current reporting is that the coup was squashed and the leaders arrested. Until this anlayst receives more accurate information, it is difficult to assess if the USA promoted the coup or was there to support non-coup officers.

Summary

It is clear, at least by this analyst’s view, President Trump and Secretary Shanahan misled the United States Congress, which is a crime. It is clear President Trump has consolidated his grip on the US miltary and found an ally in SecDef Shanahan who is more willing to serve the President than the terms of the US constitution.
