“John Brennan on Thursday recalled being asked a standard question for a top security clearance at his early CIA lie detector test: Have you ever worked with or for a group that was dedicated to overthrowing the US?”
Does Mr. Schmidt fear something in the United States?
Perhaps the former CEO of Google knows something we do not?
Might it concern impending public corruption trials?
And, just maybe, a reelection of Donald Trump?
Lapland Odyssey premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2010.
That was the same year that Toronto-based company Dominion Voting Systems acquired not only Premier Election Solutions (an American company [Ohio]) from ES&S (Election Systems & Software [Omaha, Nebraska]), but also Sequoia Voting Systems [California] from Smartmatic [U.K.].
PES had only been acquired by ES&S the previous year (2009). Before that, PES was owned by Diebold.
Premier Election Systems was formerly known as Diebold Election Systems.
Before Diebold bought it, it was known as General Election Systems.
Before General Election Systems bought it, it was known as I-Mark Systems.
You get the picture.
Dominion Voting Systems is now owned by American private equity firm Staple Street Capital (which has extremely strong ties to the Carlyle Group [George H.W. Bush’s former benefactor]).
It is getting taken down using methods suspiciously-similar to those used by the CIA in their regime change activities around the world.
Iran, Guatemala, Indonesia, Chile…
You know their work.
But this time it’s different.
Just as the American intelligence community was weaponized by President Barack Obama against Presidential candidate (and President-Elect) Donald Trump, so is the Deep State (chockfull of former CIA officers) now attempting to bring down the United States to save their asses.
Does China have any reason to attempt to totally destroy the United States AT THIS TIME?
No. [but they are a part of (willing accomplice to) the takedown]
Does Russia have any reason to attempt to totally destroy the United States AT THIS TIME?
Is there any intelligence organization in the world capable of orchestrating the total war to which the United States has been subjected over the past three months?
Only China and Russia.
And perhaps Israel.
But Israel has absolutely no reason to attempt to depose their greatest ally (Donald Trump).
Iran does not have the capability or sophistication.
Nor does North Korea.
[and North Korea, even if they had the capability (which they do not), has no reason to run a regime change campaign against the most formidable counterintelligence apparatus in the world AT THIS TIME]
And so that leaves us but one “country”: a country within a country.
The American (Globalist) Deep State.
It is almost synonymous with the CIA.
And the CIA’s methods and signatures are all over the multi-pronged onslaught we have witnessed these past months.
It’s not necessary at this time to point out the biggest players.
The Clintons? Yes.
Bill Gates? Yes.
What is most important is to locate the quarterback.
And that man is (in my opinion) none other than former Director of the CIA John Brennan.
There are other traitors involved.
But let’s outline the structure of what we have endured:
Biological Warfare–Here, China sacrificed one of its own cities [Wuhan] to create plausible deniability that they were in any way waging offensive BIOWAR. As China miraculously shielded the rest of ITS country from COVID-19, they made sure the virus made it (in droves) to the homeland of their arch nemesis: the USA
Economic Warfare–Here, the Deep State (with a giddy China looking on) watched as the U.S. economy ground to a halt because of COVID-19. Record unemployment. All economic activity ceased. The greatest economy on Earth was ruined (for the time being). Each U.S. citizen received a pittance of $1,200 which has not been enough to really sustain anyone.
Psychological Warfare–The masses of Americans were told to stay home. They were cooped up in their houses for two months. They had nothing to do. No place to go. Underlying depressions and anxieties were exponentially amplified. The populace grew frustrated. Most of all, the PANIC was conveyed daily by news organizations with heavy connections to the CIA and Democratic Party. This propaganda terrorized the populace into being afraid to leave their homes–being afraid even to breathe.
Divide and Conquer–Whether the death of George Floyd was a real or synthetic (staged) event, the news coverage would have been the same. In terms of planning, it is likely that the event never took place at all. But for the sake of argument, let’s assume for a moment that a man named George Floyd actually did die as a result of an incompetent and cruel police officer. Magically, the big bogeyman (COVID-19) WAS COMPLETELY FORGOTTEN. All of a sudden, the pent-up rage and frustration and poverty (see #3 and #2) were activated. This is the “match in a tinderbox” scenario. After two months of wall-to-wall coverage of the coronavirus (which ostensibly killed 100,000 Americans by Memorial Day), ALL OF A SUDDEN…THE LIFE OF ONE MAN (george floyd) has become more important than the lives of the 100,000 coronavirus victims (assuming that death toll is accurate [which it is not…it is grossly-inflated]).
So what we have here is a VERY SOPHISTICATED campaign designed to remove Donald Trump from the Presidency. Worst case scenario (for the Deep State), it is supposed to prevent him from being reelected.
It is also a last-ditch effort to save the asses of those Deep State members whose treason has been pinpointed and for whom justice may not be far off:
-James Baker [FBI]
It is my guess that these will be the first pawns to fall.
John Brennan is very important.
More than a pawn (in some ways).
But still a pawn.
How deep will this go?
So much depends on each move in this chess game.
Which brings us to Boogie Nights.
There’s a riot goin’ on.
Each of us has a gift.
Heather Graham is great here.
Mark Wahlberg does a really nice job.
We get the Corvette.
Symbol of summer.
Porn with “plots”.
An admirable pursuit.
Burt Reynolds is really phenomenal in this film.
But like Lovelace, this tale of sexual freedom gets darker and darker as it goes along.
You got the touch.
Feel, feel, feel, feel my heat.
Darker and darker.
But very real.
There is a great realism to certain scenes here.
Paul Thomas Anderson really does an amazing job with this one.
Even the usually-vapid Julianne Moore has some actual moments of artful acting herein.
They’re taking her children away.
Black people can like country music.
Definitely a bit of Tarantino in the donut shop scene.
But Anderson is a far superior director to QT.
QT is very talented, but very overrated.
Lots of hype…very little timeless filmmaking.
Anderson is a much more solid auteur.
There is something of Aronofsky here too.
Funny thing is, Anderson got there first.
But Requiem for a Dream goes MUCH DEEPER into drug darkness.
And yet, Anderson paints a portrait of a period of time.
And the colors are washed out.
The soul-eating burn of cocaine is depicted as it really is: torrid.
How many more nights will the “divide and conquer” boogie?
10th Mountain Division.
The United States is under attack…mainly from within.
China played a small (though not insignificant) role.
The main culprits are liberal globalists.
A second wave of coronavirus will hit the U.S.
This will happen as a result of the fake-news media pushing the narrative that one man’s death (george floyd) is more important than 100,000 ostensible fatalities.
The CIA/liberal media is distracting the country from being vigilant about hand washing, social distancing, etc.
And so this is a perfect movie with which to attempt a comeback.
“You can always come back/but you can’t come back all the way”
Bob Dylan said that.
To get her together.
I said that.
It was a rough day.
NEADS thought it was part of an exercise called Vigilant Guardian.
Michael Ruppert (may God rest his soul) documented the litany of war-games which were active on 9/11/01.
And Michael Ruppert wrote about this in a tome which should serve in some ways as a sort of bible for those wishing to know the truth about 9/11: Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil.
Ruppert was wrong about some things.
“Peak oil”, for instance.
Perhaps my understanding is hopelessly daft, but it seems that hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) changed the geopolitical world immensely.
Just a few years ago, rather intelligent folks like Leonardo Maugeri (to name a typical example) were bemoaning the hydrocarbon “cliff” off of which we were about to leap.
That has not been the case.
Maugeri’s book The Age of Oil: The Mythology, History, and Future of the World’s Most Controversial Resource is wildly, spectacularly wrong.
Which also means that Dick Cheney and all those arch conspirators* were also wildly, spectacularly wrong about the importance of the Caspian Basin.
Let me put it to you this way: if you really believe 19 blokes with box cutters brought the U.S. military machine to its knees, then I can’t help you.
As for me and my house (so to speak), we do not believe the box cutter theory.
And so we come to the DoD and fictional characters such as Stephen Falken.
And Albert Wohlstetter (not forgetting his ever-so-important-to-the-neocons wife Roberta).
And Steve Pieczenik.
So much has happened.
And so much is at a precipice.
“The Far East Strategy”.
It is my firm belief that 9/11 was some sort of engineered* conspiracy which involved boxcutters and Muslims in only the most tangential of ways.
But you will have to learn that parallel history.
If in fact you are interested.
And I shall show my enlightened, nonpartisan wisdom by recommending Trump-hater Webster Tarpley’s 9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA above all other books on the subject.
Indeed, I look forward to hopefully adding another Trump-hater (Wayne Madsen) book to my collection soon…one which discusses to what extent and in exactly what ways Saudi Arabia and Israel were involved in the 9/11 false-flag/stand-down.
Which brings us back to Pieczenik.
And the Wohlstetters.
But let us at least attempt to make passing reference to the film under consideration.
If you’ve never seen this movie from the beginning (a cold start), I highly recommend adding such footage to your filmic knowledge.
The Great Plains.
Humans in the loop.
As humans are removed, MAD (what, me worry?) becomes even more unequivocally assured.
You might remember WHOPPER’s (WOPR) cousin [Siemens System 4004] from Willy Wonka…
It is somehow fitting that WarGames should make a Burger King allusion in 1983.
Indeed, this was the period of the very real (and ridiculous) “burger wars“.
But let’s get on with it…
Matthew Broderick plays basically the Bill Gates of this famous picture:
I must say…this film deeply affected me as a kid.
Perhaps it was due to the wonderfully effervescent (what is she, a sparkling wine?!?) Ally Sheedy.
Sure… There are a couple of moments of unbearable melodrama to make this movie slightly imperfect, but a kid doesn’t notice such things.
And so as a youth, I ate this film up.
Broderick and Sheedy as “partners in crime” (somewhat literally…).
It would be like some high school kid hacking into the USAF’s Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) to play a “game”.
Is this real world or exercise?
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
Which brings us back to the ubiquitous Baudrillard.
And, if you can bear it, Debord.
GLOBAL THERMONUCLEAR WAR.
But let’s change tacks for a second.
Back in the Cold War days.
David Lightman would have been a prime target for recruitment by a foreign intelligence service (or so this film claims).
However, I would point out a plane which the passing analysis seems to miss: industrious brilliance.
Recording the analog [?) signal of the infirmary door with a psychiatrist’s micro-tape recorder.
Removing the tap from a pay phone and using a pull tab to hotwire a call back home (in lieu of a quarter).
These are the assets of operators.
Whether CIA or early FBI, appreciation for unconventional skill sets has been a hallmark of organizations engaged in successful growth.
Put differently, David Lightman would have made a pretty great spook.
Indeed, his skill set might have been best utilized by the NSA (no such agency).
Back in the day.
Before the world changed.
The average citizen had no idea about the National Security Agency back in the Bobby Ray Inman days (1977-1981).
Know your enemy.
Half the battle.
Mirror’s other half.
It’s not impossible.
To make a matrix.
Must be organized.
Few films capture this.
This anxiety of being ushered into an FBI van.
Picked up on the street.
Fresh out of the 7-11.
A unique take on “talent spotting”.
Almost an accidental spy.
Like the DIA buffoons seen here:
These films are real.
And offer us hope.
About unconventional paths.
Former DIA head Gen. Flynn has an appreciation for this.
“…you magnificent bastard, I read your book!”
[or some of it]
Enter the jaded Richard Dawkins character.
Really a rather laborious (and dead-on) archetype.
The “science worshipper”.
Obsessed with mass extinction.
Really, Dr. Falken is very much a J. Robert Oppenheimer character.
Which is appropriate, seeing as how the subject under consideration is Global Thermonuclear War.
WarGames is a genuinely moving, inspired film.
But it stumbles in a few places.
Not least, at the end.
Both of them 🙂
Yes, like the slew of “disaster movies” (such as Deep Impact) which glutted picture houses at the end of the last century, WarGames hones in on a maudlin tessitura which is made ineffective by repeated use.
In plain English, this film has two endings.
And they are identical.
And the aforementioned melodrama.
Yet for all its imperfections, WarGames is a masterpiece of sorts.
