Ukraine is Not a Brothel [2013)

2013, eh?

What happened the next year?

Let’s get our organizations straight.

Because, as this documentary elucidates, the money just COMES IN.

Anonymous.

[a story for another time]

Is George Soros a “fan” (benefactor) of FEMEN?

You bet your damn ass he is.

But as a wise person has said: it is not what we know in our gut, but what we can prove that matters.

When it comes to tracing transnational, criminal conspiracies (aka “color revolutions”).

What happened in Ukraine in 2014?

Let’s meet our players (and their ilk).

FEMEN.

Ukrainian.

Фемен.

Lots of similarities between Russian and Ukrainian language.

But don’t trust me.

Try Duolingo.

Wanna read Russian news?

I do.

Because our news (the bullshit aggregated on Drudge Report) is globalist propaganda.

I want a new propaganda (to dérive Huey Lewis).

Wanna read something other than Russia Today (RT), ITAR-TASS (aka TASS), Pravda, or Sputnik (all four of these are good sources)?

Then you’re gonna have to learn Russian.

And this conflict ain’t going anywhere.

Unless we all get incinerated (which I would say there’s about a 30% chance of right now…as things stand).

So sound out your Cyrillic.

FEMEN.

I almost stopped watching this film as soon as I heard the word “patriarchy”.

Dog whistle for “Marxist moron philosophy to shortly follow”.

But I stuck it out.

For you guys.

And not because the tits were that great.

Because they weren’t.

Relocated to Paris (as this film delineates).

Founded in Ukraine.

Famous for their activities in Ukraine.

Anna Hutsol.

Looks like a fucking man.

But kinda cute.

Murmansk.

Oh, to be a professional “activist”.

Have you seen these cunts (men too!) on Twitter?

They have the word “activist” in their bios.

What kind of Jane Fonda imbecile would self-identify with that word?

And think about this.

Those cigarettes they are smoking (these “activists”)…some poor schmuck in the Philippines is paying for that with his donation.

Or, more likely, George Soros routed some money through multiple shell organizations to pay for those cigarettes.

Why?

To destabilize Ukraine.

Why?

To, in turn, destabilize Russia.

It’s the kind of bullshit our CIA does.

Which begs the question:  does George Soros work for the CIA?

Indeed, does George Soros OWN the CIA?

What about Klaus Schwab?

Does the CIA work for Klaus Schwab?

Officially?

Unofficially?

In essence?

Anna Hutsol.

Jewish (big surprise).

An “economist”.

Yeah, right.

And I’m an architect.

I have to hand it to FEMEN in one sense.

They are masters of public relations and publicity.

Much like Fauci, er, Zelensky.

FEMEN does not seem to be too knowledgeable about prostitution (the traditional kind…not philosophical prostitution [they are masters of that!]) in Ukraine.

So let’s help them out.

You gotta go back a little bit.

To the first “white slavery” in Europe.

To Belgium.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_slave_trade_affair

Frame of reference.

Why did Putin invade Ukraine?

Demilitarization (to protect Russia and ethnic Russians in Ukraine [the latter of which are being subjected to genocide in Donbass at the hands of the neo-Nazi Ukrainian goverment {courtesy of the Ihor Kolomoyskyi/Igor Kolomoisky/Kolomoysky-funded neo-Nazi Azov Battalion}]).

IMG_7898

Denazification (to protect the Russian-speaking population of Ukraine who are being subjected to genocide [as outlined in objective #1]).

Destruction of U.S.-funded biolabs.

Human trafficking (stopping the cesspool Ukraine from providing girls [many underage] to the illegal sex trafficking industry both in Europe and around the world).

DDDH.

Demilitarization Denazification Destruction (of biolabs) Human trafficking (interdiction).

This final point (the interdiction of human trafficking occurring in and emanating from Ukraine) has not, as far as I’m aware, been thus far ideated by the Kremlin.

But it goes without saying.

The same forces (Kolomoysky) that fund the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion are likely to have their fingers in the human trafficking (sex trafficking) pie.

Kolomoysky is Jewish.

Yet he materially supports (funds) the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion.

Does that strike you as strange?

Does it make you rethink your assumptions about Jewish “choir boy” (cantor) Zelensky???

I am not accusing Kolomoysky of doing anything other than being guilty of being (a Jewish) funder of neo-Nazis in Ukraine.

But I will say this:  it appears that a good many Ukrainian girls end up as sex slaves in Israel.

You decide.

Sacha Baron Cohen can joke in his TV series Who is America? about Eastern European girls being smuggled en masse into Assad’s Syria aboard yachts.

Is it because this activity is common knowledge?

Why did Sacha Baron Cohen take the role of Mossad spy Eli Cohen in The Spy?

Strange role, no?

Is SBC a dual-citizen?

Why has he become so humorless as of late?

He’s become [drumroll] an ACTIVIST.

How disgusting.

And how strikingly-similar to Jim Carrey.

It’s almost like these guys are nervous about something.

What.

Were they hanging with Epstein on Little Saint James?

Or at Zorro Ranch??

Or on Lolita Express???

Let’s get back to what FEMEN never once (!) talks about in this titty-flashing movie.

Their ostensible raison d’être.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_trafficking_in_Ukraine

There is an effort to hide this.

As if Ukraine is more advanced–more civilized when it comes to stopping sex trafficking (when exactly the opposite is the case [as Putin knows, it is the epicenter–the cesspool on his doorstep]).

The Thailand of Europe.

Sure.

Czechia has problems too.

But Ukraine appears to be ground zero in Europe (as regards the number of young women and girls [and boys!]) that they supply to the international illegal sex trade.

Buying and selling persons.

Remember James Alefantis and his Instagram?

What were those strange pictures of porcelain dolls with price tags?

Why post that?

And those pictures of stacks of rubber-banded Euros?

Why post that?

Some kind of joke??

I kinda don’t think so.

It may be a joke (funny to the author [Alefantis]), but it is not truly in jest.

…but I digress.

Anna Hutsol was detained by the FSB (Russian security service) in November 2012.

The year before this film was released.

And a mere two years before the U.S. government and a George Soros NGO engineered the coup in Ukraine.

The “revolution of dignity”.

They had already had the “orange” revolution.

Running out of colors.

And “revolution of dignity” sounds slightly less-absurd than “chartreuse” revolution.

Anna Hutsol was deported from Russia upon attempting to enter the country via Saint Petersburg in November 2012.

Deported back to Paris.

Her point of departure.

Soon afterwards, the homegrown FEMEN would leave Ukraine for France.

Anna Hutsol was denied asylum in Switzerland.

Because she is a political operative.

And not a genuine refugee.

That is plain to see.

By 2013, FEMEN was featured in multiple films (including the French television production Nos seins, nos armes!, the documentary Everyday Rebellion, and the film currently under consideration).

Indeed, three films came out on FEMEN the same year:  2013.

The year before the U.S. (Victoria Nuland and Geoffrey Pyatt acting as point people [not to mention John McCain]) overthrew the government of Ukraine.

In 2014, a fourth FEMEN documentary appeared (Je suis FEMEN):  fourth in two years.

Was this group really that inspiring?

Did any of these filmmakers (our director Kitty Green, Caroline Fourest, Nadia El Fani, Arash T. Riahi, Arman Riahi, and/or Alain Margot) receive funding from any NGOs?

If so, which NGOs?

They wouldn’t happen to be Soros (and/or Schwab) -connected, would they?

Oksana Shachko died in 2018.

In Paris.

She was only 31.

Unlike Hutsol, she was actually born in Ukraine.

Hutsol moved to Ukraine from Russia at age seven.

Shachko hung herself.

Ostensibly.

She was from Western Ukraine.

This is important.

This is where arch-Ukrainian-Nazi Stepan Bandera was from.

Shachko went from wanting to be a nun (age 12?) to becoming an atheist (age 14).

What caused such a precipitous change in this young Ukrainian woman between the years 1999-2001?

It was likely her enrollment in the free university of Khmelnytsky at age 13.

That’s where she appears to have been met with radical feminist indoctrination.

Keep in mind, FEMEN has not only spawned documentaries.

There are also tomes by the likes of Galia Ackerman, etc.

It is purported that the “security forces” of Vladimir Putin attacked Shachko multiple times.

When?

Where?

How?

How was this proven?

Where is the proof that Putin sent anyone after her?

What was Shachko’s relationship with the French group Front National?

[now known as National Rally]

Shachko had a solo art exhibition in Paris in 2016.

In 2019, it was reported in Elle that this was not Shachko’s first attempt to hang herself.

Alexandra Shevchenko was also born in Ukraine.

Also in Western Ukraine (the land of Ukrainian Nazi Stepan Bandera).

It should be noted that Hutsol, Shachko, and Shevchenko all grew up in the same town:  Khmelnytskyi.

Population:  approximately 275,000.

There was a FEMEN protest in Moscow against Vladimir Putin in December 2011.

FEMEN have protested in Belarus.

Also in 2011.

Inna Shevchenko (not to be confused with Alexandra) cut down a Christian cross in Kiev with a chainsaw in 2012.

Now where have we seen that activity before?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=uHMHPQY3BmE

Incidentally, Shachko appears in this film in a hat with a cutesy-pink hammer and sickle on it.

Kitsch?

Or do these morons want to go back to communism???

Inna was born in Ukraine.

In Kherson (in the south).

A Black Sea port.

In 2013, Inna was granted asylum in France.

When was the Orange Revolution (about which I spoke earlier)?

2004.

In the aftermath of an election followed by claims of corruption and electoral fraud.

Sound familiar?

What happened?

The Supreme Court (of Ukraine) ordered a revote.

Americans were not so lucky.

Our SCOTUS is itself obviously corrupt.

Hence their inaction on the 2020 election (which Trump clearly won).

So we are now stuck with bumbling dictator Biden.

Mandate Biden.

What other colors of revolution have there been?

Let’s line them up:

Philippines “Yellow Revolution”:  1986

Papua New Guinea “Coconut Revolution”:  1988-1998

Czechoslovakia “Velvet Revolution”:  1989

Yugoslavia “Bulldozer Revolution”:  2000

Georgia (Tbilisi) “Rose Revolution”:  2003

Georgia (Tbilisi) “Second Rose Revolution”:  2004

Ukraine “Orange Revolution”:  2004-2005

Iraq “Purple Revolution”:  2005

Kyrgyzstan “Tulip Revolution”:  2005

Lebanon “Cedar Revolution”:  2005

Kuwait “Blue Revolution”:  2005

Belarus “Jeans Revolution”:  2006

Myanmar “Saffron Revolution”:  2007

Malaysia “Yellow Rally”:  2007-2016

Bahrain “Pearl Revolution”:  2011-2014

Yemen “Yemeni Revolution”:  2011

China “Chinese Jasmine Revolution”:  2011

Russia “Snow Revolution”:  2011-2013

[notice that China and Russia (who are now aligned due to moronic U.S. foreign policy) were hit back to back:  coincidence?  I don’t fucking think so.]

Macedonia “Colourful Revolution”:  2016

Armenia “Velvet Revolution”:  2018

Lebanon “October Revolution”:  2019-present

Bolivia “Pitita Revolution”:  2019

Belarus “Slipper Revolution”:  2020-present

Do you notice how the USA isn’t on there?

It should be.

I would call it Coronariots.

Inna and Alexandrea Shevchenko are not related.

How did these two meet?

On VK, of course! [VKontakte (Russian social media platform)]

Enter DJ Hell.

Inna was arrested in Enschede, Netherlands for cutting down “wooden” (read Christian) crosses.

She was protesting the arrest of Pussy Riot (remember this name).

Inna got asylum in France in 2013.

Le Figaro‘s Saturday supplement Madame Figaro named Inna as one of the world’s most iconic women in December 2012.

Inna thinks that “homophobes” and “fascists” are “extremists”.

She lumps them all together.

But are FEMEN “extremists”?

The implication is, “Of course not.”

Indeed.  

To watch these women flail like LeBron James when they are arrested only attests to the hysteria that drives their actions.

They are performers.

And not very entertaining ones.

They are shrill.

Annoying.

And most certainly guilty of (were it to be directed at any other religion but Christianity) hate crimes.

Desecration.

Sacrilege.

In 2015, Inna was speaking in Copenhagen.

She was discussing the “illusion” of “freedom of speech” in Western Europe.

As she was speaking, a terrorist opened fire in the lobby.

Wikipedia leaves out the identity and motivation of this terrorist.

Was he (oh, I don’t know) MUSLIM???

And if so, was he acting AGAINST these fucking stupid stunts of FEMEN?

I would say that the probability is not negligible.

Inna once stripped nude on Al Jazeera before the feed was cut.

But the context was particularly appalling.

The interviewer had just asked, “Which is better for women, nudity or the paranja?”

Paranja = Central Asian version of burqa

This is very offensive.

This is offensive to Arabic speakers.

This is offensive to Muslims.

Why should a non-Arab, non-Muslim such as Inna be granted “asylum” in France for pulling these kinds of stunts worldwide?

Why doesn’t she and her band of merry strippers stay in Ukraine and fight for the rights of women and girls?

Why not?

Because they don’t fucking care.

Because FEMEN are fake.

They are a tool.

A can opener.

If it isn’t Soros slipping money into their bank account, it is someone of that ilk.

All of these “color revolutions” need a spark.

Strangely, the list above (from Wikipedia) also doesn’t include the “Revolution of Dignity” which occurred in Ukraine in 2014.

These are the infamous Euromaidan protests.

Much more violent than the Orange Revolution (where only one person died [of a heart attack]).

2004.

2014.

The revolution was restarted.

Tried again.

Inna Shevchenko studied journalism.

Can you guess who has published her?

CNN, Huffington Post…

Inna is apparently against all religion (like the late-Shachko):  Christianity, Islam, Judaism, etc.

Those are the only ones she singles out.

What about Buddhism?

Hiduism?

No mention of those.

Only the Abrahamic religions seem to be in her sights.

Inna seems to be fighting religion more than she is fighting sex trafficking.

I thought, “Ukraine is not a brothel”?

Maybe ease up on bashing religions and do some fucking research about sex trafficking.

And if you have done the research, Inna, then fucking talk about it!!!

Instead of just shooting your mouth off about how RELIGION is so oppressive to women.

What about the Ukrainian women and girls who are sold as sex slaves?

Do you think they wake up every day thinking how oppressive RELIGION is???

Of course not.

FEMEN are fucking fakes!

Yana Zhdanova.

Donetsk Oblast.

One founder from Eastern Ukraine.

One from Southern Ukraine.

And three from Western Ukraine.

Yana and other members of FEMEN were expelled from Turkey in 2012.

Maybe if FEMEN had remained in Ukraine (and had stayed focused on helping rape victims, for instance) they would actually be making a positive difference in the world?

As it is, they are just being used by their backers (funders).

FEMEN made their pro-abortion stance clear in April 2012 with their protest in the bell tower of Saint-Sophia cathedral in Kyiv.

Another moronic stance.

A death cult.

And the strumpet cheerleaders of this death cult.

Do you think dead little babies are cool?

Apparently FEMEN do.

They want to HELP women by making sure women can KILL their unborn children.

That is not revolutionary.

It’s stupid.

It’s not noble.

It’s disgusting.

As you might expect, FEMEN seem to particularly despise Lukashenko (President of Belarus).

This is somewhat understandable.

Was Lukashenko installed by way of a rigged election?

Many say he was.

I do have sympathy for electorates whose voices have been squelched by election fraud.

But once again, FEMEN make no sense.

WHY don’t they like Lukashenko?

The reason is not apparent in their ill-thought-out slogan, “Respect, KGB, UEFA.”

What the fuck is that supposed to mean?

In other news, there is a mosque in Kyiv.

Back to Lukashenko, at least FEMEN got their point across with the slogan, “Stop Dictator”.

They have a point.

Lukashenko has been President of Belarus since 1994.

That is a bit long.

28 years.

But Belarus has had to deport FEMEN on a notorious occassion.

It was rather brutal.

But the message from the Belarussian KGB was clear:

“don’t come to our fucking country.”

Did FEMEN come back?

No.

FEMEN really hate Christianity.

Their protests in Ukraine make this clear.

Why protest the 1025th anniversary of Orthodox Christianity in Kyivan Rus’?

Why not protest sex trafficking??

I thought, “Ukraine is not a brothel”???

Protesting Christianity is the kind of bullshit Klaus Schwab would support.

Or ethnic Jew George Soros (who doesn’t believe in God [according to his 60 Minutes interview with Steve Kroft]).

My guess is that Soros and Schwab want to dispense with religions.

Because religions involve morality.

Ethics.

And these communist eco-Nazis (Schwab and Soros) will not be able to effect their Great Reset without seriously weakening organized religions.

But guess what?

They already did.

What was closed down for much of the past two years in the USA?

Churches.

What was open?

Casinos, etc.

In December 1, 2013, Yana protested in front of the Ukrainian embassy in Paris (a country which gave her asylum in 2014…apparently urinators need protection from those upon whose images they urinate) by urinating on photos of Victor Yanukovych.

Yanukovych would be overthrown in a U.S.-led coup the following year (as evidenced by the leaked phone call between Victoria Nuland and Geoffrey Pyatt).

Three weeks after peeing on Yanukovych in Paris, Yana went to Brussels where her slogan was, “Putin is the killer of democracy.”

What was “the great uniter” Joe Biden’s first act as President?

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/18/world/europe/russia-biden-putin-killer.html

Joe Biden absolutely went to the Rex Tillerson school of diplomacy.

Had Trump not fired Tillerson, the U.S. and North Korea would have fought a nuclear war during Trump’s Presidency.

In 2012, Yana attacked the patriarch Kirilll of Moscow and all of Russia at the airport in Kyiv.

What an offense!

Let’s be clear.

These dumbass “smash the patriarchy” bitches are not being metaphorical.

They actually want to deprive Russian Orthodox Christians of their dignity.

Imagine if the current Pope wasn’t a communist cocksucker.

What if Yana had attacked him?

Even so.

It’s one thing to call someone a “communist cocksucker”.

It’s another to physically assault him.

I have no love or respect for Pope Bergoglio.

Because he is a fucking sellout.

He is a goddamned communist prick.

But I would never attack him physically.

I do, however, reserve my right to insult him in writing.

I love Catholics.

I am a Christian.

Make of that what you want.

I reserve the right to rail against false idols such as Pope Bergoglio in a manner commensurate to the prophets of old.

I’m not a prophet.

I’m not overturning a table in the synagogue.

But I will tell you this:  Jesus was a bad motherfucker.

Wars happen.

Wars are fought.

There is a time to stand up.

Putin is, in my opinion (considering all the intel I have consumed), doing the right thing in Ukraine.

Putin is fighting against the insidious influence of globalist tools like FEMEN.

By the way, what was Yana’s slogan when she attacked the patriarch?

“Kill Kirill.”

What an insult.

Indeed, more than an insult.

A threat of violence.

An incitement to violence.

To anyone who heard those words.

An instruction.

I would never say such a thing about Pope Bergoglio.

I hope the Pope confesses his sins and turns from his communist cocksucking ways.

I understand shock value.

In this small sense, I respect FEMEN.

But in the grand scheme, I think what they are doing is evil.

Perhaps they are just stupid.

And greedy.

And vacuous.

Yana protested in Lithuania in 2013.

This was a key event in starting the Euromaidan protest.

These dumb bitches want to be a part of the European Union.

That’s why they flee their homeland and post up in Paris.

Meanwhile, they say very little about how Ukrainian girls and women are bought and sold across Western Europe and the world.

So these fucking bitches are fake-ass sellouts.

They just want the fame of protesting some dumb bullshit.

They suck Soros cock all day long.

Metaphorically, of course.

Because Soros has no cock to suck.

His demon cock fell off long ago.

Same with Satanist Schwab.

Speaking of Nazis…

https://unlimitedhangout.com/2021/02/investigative-reports/schwab-family-values/

And:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=OT1Qn6COp6Y

What is it with these Nazi Jews?!?

Do they think the Holocaust didn’t happen???

I think the Holocaust DID happen!

There!

Take that, you pricks!!

I think Nazis are the scum of the earth.

Fuck Nazis!!!

So what am I:

anti-semitic?

No, I don’t think so.

A white supremacist?

Nope, try again.

I’m just a dude who thinks the idea of super-rich Jews having benefitted from families who collaborated with the Nazis (Soros and Schwab) is disgusting.

And I think the idea of the 2nd or 3rd richest person in Ukraine (Igor Kolomoysky [also a Jew]) funding the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion that is committing genocide (the past eight years) against the Russian-speaking population of Donbass is disgusting.

Have these three Jews no shame?

Particularly Kolomoysky.

Soros has no control (nor any remorse) about how he went around with his fake godfather and confiscated the property of Jews during WWII.

Schwab seems to have no remorse about his father having profited immensely by being a Nazi collaborator in Germany during WWII (assuming the above link is accurate).

I am just scratching the surface with FEMEN.

The same can be done with Pussy Riot.

Or Marina Abramovic (who is “standing with Ukraine” [blech!]).

FEMEN and Pussy Riot are largely-interchangeable globalist tools.

Abramovic is their godhead.

These are not good people.

These are spirit-cooking, sick fucks.

This is not what Putin wants in his neighborhood.

And I don’t blame him.

LGBTQ, BLM, and Antifa are all globalist tools.

And their members (cult members) are useful idiots.

Dupes.

In 2014, Yana destroyed a wax figure of Putin in Paris (a country that gave her asylum [from what?!?] that same year).

Her message when she destroyed this wax figure of Putin?

“Kill Putin.”

Tell me, Yana, how does this message help the young women and girls of Ukraine who are being funneled into international sex trafficking rings?

How does “killing Putin” or “killing patriarch Kirill of Moscow” help young Ukrainian women and girls who have been SOLD and have ended up as sex slaves in places like Israel?

Does Putin run Israel?

I don’t think so.

Does Putin run the international sex trafficking market?

I don’t think so.

And if he does (and that is your message [which I doubt it is]), then prove it.

Get your feeble brain to log on to Mother Jones.

I don’t even care if the link is bullshit.

Just let me know why on earth you think killing Kirill and Putin will help young women and girls in Ukraine.

Are Kirill and Putin buying Ukrainian women and girls?

I kinda doubt it.

But I bet there are plenty of Parisians (your country of “asylum”) who are.

Plenty of rich French customers.

Is Paris a brothel?

Is France a brothel?

And where are the women and girls in those brothels from?

Not, perhaps, from your country which you abandoned (Ukraine)???

2014.

Yana vandalized the Vatican by taking the baby Jesus statue from the Nativity scene in front of Saint Peter’s Basilica while shouting, “God is woman.”

Yeah.

Great.

Real productive.

Hey Yana, you dumb bitch:

is the Holy Spirit male or female?

Think on that as that sweet Soros money rolls into the FEMEN bank account.

I agree with Yana and FEMEN on one point.

Bring on the titties!

I have no problem with women going topless.

That’s something I can get behind.

-PD

 

Nazis in the CIA [2013)

Let’s start with Paul Dickopf.

SS.

CIA asset from 1965-1971.

[But all of this goes back earlier.]

Most astonishingly, Dickopf was the head of INTERPOL from 1968-1972.

So here is one Nazi (an SS member) that the CIA paid.

And INTERPOL was headed by a Nazi.

And that particular Nazi, Dickopf, was also on the CIA payroll while he was head of INTERPOL.

What if there were Ukrainian Nazis that shared this kind of cozy relationship with the CIA?

There were.

You may know Operation Paperclip.

You probably think scientists.

But there was more (and less) to it.

People avoided Nuremberg merely because the CIA found them useful.

And what this movie points out is important.

How did the CIA control former-Nazis?

By threatening to reveal their past Nazi actions.

Such was the case with Dickopf.

His Nazi activities only came to public attention after his death.

After his usefulness had been gleaned by the CIA.

Of course the Soviets had an analogous program.

Operation Osoaviakhim.

You probably know of Wernher von Braun.

SS.

1937-1945.

A Major in the SS.

Major von Braun.

I believe my father crossed paths with von Braun at Redstone Arsenal.

They did not meet.

But they were there at the same time.

Strange, isn’t it?

Nazi Wernher von Braun worked with Walt Disney (the man) on a series of films about space travel.

1955-1957.

Let me repeat, Disney worked with a Nazi.

For two years.

Von Braun took music composition as a boy from Paul Hindemith.

One of my texts as a music theory and composition undergraduate was by Hindemith.

There is solid testimony that Von Braun picked slave laborers from the Mittelbau-Dora concentration camp.

There is solid testimony that this Nazi SS Major did nothing to help those who were being tortured and worked to death.

But to Von Braun’s credit, he was (supposedly) arrested by the Gestapo for “not being Nazi enough”.

He was considered a defeatist who knew the war wasn’t going well.

He complained that he wasn’t working on a spaceship.

And POOF, a young female dentist reported him.

Himmler, who was trying to angle in on the production of V-2 rockets, had him charged as a communist sympathizer.

There was also fear that Von Braun, who piloted his own plane, might defect to England.

There were 14 tons of paper (!) documents on the V-2 rocket which Von Braun hid in the Harz mountains.

These were located by Army Counterintelligence (who blocked and have me blocked on Twitter).

Wernher von Braun and his brother Magnus turned over the V-2 rocket technology to the USA (and not the Soviet Union) because they ostensibly perceived the Americans to be “guided not by the laws of materialism but by Christianity”.

Hmmm.

SOUNDS good.

To flesh out the story, I should mention that Wernher von Braun conspired to be captured by the Americans (and not by the Soviets).

Von Braun and his team were housed at Fort Bliss (near El Paso, TX).

Von Braun and team then spent the next 20 years in Hunstville, Alabama.

Redstone Arsenal.

The war we are currently facing is a face-off between two nuclear powers (USA and Russia).

The USA owes its development of rocketry in a large part to a Nazi.

There are American satellites in space because of a Nazi (beginning in 1958 [Explorer 1]).

The idea and dream of traveling to Mars can largely be attributed to this same Nazi.

In 1946, this Nazi had become an Evangelical Christian after attending church in El Paso.

Pretty amazing, eh?

Makes for a good story, doesn’t it?

But is it true???

But let’s get another Nazi into the picture, shall we?

What about Kurt Debus?

The first director of Kennedy Space Center.

A NASA Nazi.

SS.

Debus joined the SA (Brownshirts) in 1933 and the SS in 1940.

By the way, Von Braun signed an affidavit where he erroneously said that he joined the SS in 1939.

He actually joined in 1937.

Hmmm.

Debus was with Von Braun at Fort Bliss.

He was also with him at Redstone.

This roving band of merry Nazis.

In the summer of 1966-67 (southern hemisphere), Von Braun went to Antarctica.

Hmmm.

And guess who came up with Space Camp for kids?

You guessed it.

A Nazi!

[Von Braun]

Jawohl!

So America (and the Soviet Union) took credit for “defeating” the Nazis.

But both countries pilfered important (and not-so-important) Nazis for various purposes.

And now Putin says he is fighting Naziism in Ukraine (which I believe).

Gerald Ford (a 33rd-degree Freemason) awarded the National Medal of Science in Engineering to Wernher von Braun in 1977.

The highest science honor that can be bestowed by the American government.

Good job, Nazi!

Von Braun is buried in Alexandria, Virginia.

Nazis like Von Braun were given American citizenship.

The U.S. Navy took Herbert Wagner.

The U.S. Army took 127 rocket scientists (including Von Braun).

The Bureau of Mines (pre- Department of Energy) took seven synthetic fuel specialists.

The USAF really liked the imported Nazis.

They took 260 of them.

Did Operation Paperclip continue until 1990?

If so, continue in what sense?

Paperclip wasn’t CIA per se.

It was run by the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency.

So we could start by calling it an OSS (CIA’s predecessor agency) and Army CIC (counterintelligence corps) program.

Only problem is, the CIA came into existence in 1947.

So in what way was Paperclip NOT a CIA program?

Hmmm.

Paperclip appears to have been overseen by the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

So you would have:

Army Intelligence

Naval Intelligence

Air Force Intelligence

and

State Department?!?

For instance, Magnus von Braun (Wernher’s brother) had an INSCOM dossier.

Fascinating.

Wernher von Braun’s dossier has never been made public.

Hmmm.

The U.S. military helped Kurt Blome escape to Argentina to avoid trial for human experiments conducted at Ravensbruck.

Ravensbrück.

But the CIA wanted assets.

And access.

We’re not talking about the commonly-known scientists like Wernher von Braun.

We’re talking more about people such as Paul Dickopf.

Let me reiterate, the head of INTERPOL (Dickopf) from 1968-1972 was on the CIA payroll.

We’re not talking about Camp Ashcan and the 86 Nazi leaders in Luxembourg.

But it falls somewhere in the realm of Safehaven, doesn’t it?

Let’s talk about Klaus Barbie.

U.S. “intelligence services” (CIA?) employed Klaus Barbie and helped him escape to Bolivia.

Barbie was a master of torture (as disgusting as that sounds).

This was applied in Bolivia.

Why would the United States support such a thing?

In an effort to “fight communism”, of course.

I agree that communism is bad.

And should be fought.

Indeed, capitalism and communism ought to fight each other (as ideological concepts) on the “battlefield” of economics.

But torture is unacceptable.

It is evil.

To what extent did the “U.S. intelligence services” simply (and cynically) “look the other way” in regards to Barbie torturing people in Bolivia?

We are talking about 1980.

The “Cocaine Coup”.

But you gotta go back to 1973.

And Kissinger.

In Chile.

Pinochet.

To what extent were Italian Fascists allowed to set up camp in Chile by their “intelligence services” (DINA)?

To what extent were Italian Fascists (supported by the Kissinger State Department) responsible for the overthrow of democratically-elected socialist Salvador Allende?

Pinochet.

To what extent did this 1973 coup rely upon Italian Fascists?

Where were these fascists coming from?

Were there any Nazis involved in Chile?

Where had these people been since the end of WWII?

In Francisco Franco’s Spain, perhaps?

When did Franco die?

1980s?

What role did Italian Fascists (who fought on the same side as the Nazis in WWII) play in the Operation Gladio false-flag bombings in Italy?

When did this start?

If Gladio was a stay-behind network (and it was), when was it formed?

Immediately after WWII?

Yes.

But the communists lost the first elections in postwar Italy.

Gladio didn’t really get kicking with their false-flag bombings (blamed on communists) until the 1970s.

Who organized Operation Gladio?

It wouldn’t happen to have been NATO, would it?

I THINK IT FUCKING WAS…

http://www.journalof911studies.com/resources/2014GanserVol39May.pdf

But let’s back up to Barbie…because this is a tasty story of evil.

And how the intelligence business is a DIRTY FUCKING BUSINESS.

Barbie.

Gestapo.

SS.

“The Butcher of Lyon”.

Absolutely ruthless.

The Nazi crushing of the French resistance.

And Kissinger apparently said, “Fuck it!  Let’s hire him.”

I’m guessing.

Kissinger didn’t actually say that.

Or maybe he did.

But that is what I imagine he would have said in his thick fuck accent.

So Kissinger is good, right?

He fought communism.

By using torturers like Klaus Barbie.

To what extent did the State Department under Henry Kissinger use Klaus Barbie?

1983.

Extradited to France.

And France are such a bunch of pussies that they gave him life in prison.

No death penalty???

What the fuck?!?

Barbie worked under Adolf Eichmann in Amsterdam.

The Nazis were, by-the-way, anti-Freemason.

Hmmm.

From Amsterdam, Barbie went to Lyon.

And famously set up his headquarters (as head of the local Gestapo) in the Hôtel Terminus.

Here he personally tortured both adults and children alike.

But the pussies France didn’t execute him because dumbass, watery France abolished the death penalty in 1981.

Great job, wusses!

Barbie probably killed about 14,000 people.

That is the estimate.

But he was allowed to die in prison.

Of cancer.

Maybe that is more painful.

Barbie sent 44 Jewish children to Auschwitz.

But he was allowed to die of old age.

Albeit in prison.

Somehow doesn’t seem right.

The punishment doesn’t exactly seem to fit the crime.

For whom did Klaus Barbie work immediately after these 14,000 murders and deportations of children to Auschwitz?

These guys.

IMG_1221 2

It must suck trying to spin that one.

The U.S. government made sure that Klaus Barbie (who was wanted in France) remained free for the next 33 years.

Hmmm.

Who specifically refused to hand over Klaus Barbie?

John J. McCloy.

Who was John J. McCloy?

I think you will find that he was David Rockefeller’s mentor.

Who else helped Barbie escape?

One helper was a Croatian Catholic priest named Krunoslav Draganovic.

Now why on earth would a Catholic priest want to help a Nazi torturer escape???

By 1965, Barbie was working for West German Intelligence (BND).

A little later, you would have Putin working for the KGB in East Germany (where the Stasi [not really independent of the KGB] held sway).

Perspective: the “good guys” (West Germany) had Klaus Barbie, a child-torturing, child-murdering, mass murderer on their payroll starting in 1965.

All of Klaus Barbie’s BND payments passed through San Francisco.

You know, the place where Satanism started (around this same time [1966]).

But Satanism’s just a big joke, right?

It’s just about being “individual”, right?

Barbie was on the BND payroll by 1965, but he had been in Bolivia since 1951.

Barbie was even in the Bolivian Armed Forces!

Barbie literally TAUGHT torture in Bolivia.

He taught the Bolivian military.

So you had non-Nazis in Bolivia with names like Castro.

Associates of Klaus Barbie (who went under the alias Klaus Altmann).

Barbie armed Bolivian drug cartels.

Barbie made connections with Colombian drug traffickers.

Barbie even met with Pablo Escobar in the late-1970s.

Barbie did security for the Medellín cartel.

Making sure the raw coca was safe–from cultivation to processing.

Which made Pablo Escobar a funder of anti-communism.

Are you beginning to see how fucked up all these interlocking relationships are?

The Grooms of Death.

Wasn’t that in Chile?

Barbie armed the coup plotters in Bolivia who were successful in 1980.

Luis García Meza.

Cocaine Coup.

1971.

Barbie was spotted by Nazi hunters in Peru.

Let’s change gears.

Stefano Delle Chiaie.

He almost made it to the COVID years.

Only dying in 2019.

Italian Fascist.

Friend of Licio Gelli [important].

P2 masonic lodge.

Propaganda due.

And the Nazis were anti-Masonic…

Operation Gladio.

http://www.journalof911studies.com/resources/2014GanserVol39May.pdf

Important.

NATO.

Now A Terrorist Organization.

“Now”.

Always?

Operation Condor.

1975.

Start.

Kissinger.

Jorge Rafael Videla (Argentina).

50 years in prison.

Torture.

Murder.

Kidnapping of babies.

Number of victims?

30,000+.

Twice as prolific as Klaus Barbie.

And this is just one country’s (Argentina’s) commander for Operation Condor.

Same thing in Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay.

Now you see why Uruguay called for Kissinger’s arrest.

Because Kissinger oversaw this program (apparently).

What time period are we talking about?

1968-1989.

We are talking about 60,000-80,000 deaths under Operation Condor.

Who was targeted?

The left-wing.

Communists.

Socialists.

But also right-wingers who “weren’t right-wing enough”.

It seems the CIA had a big role in this.

U.S. government operation.

Support often “routed” through CIA.

The U.S. military was concerned about “perceived threats” and “subversives” in Latin America.

Similar to Operation Gladio.

The end justifies the means.

A brute-force way of preventing communist takeovers.

Dirty.

Clumsy.

Evil.

Fighting one evil (communism) with another (murder/torture).

But what brought Operation Condor into being?

It was a series of coups.

Paraguay (1954).

Brazil (1964).

Bolivia (1971).

Uruguay (June 1973).

Chile (September 11, 1973).

Peru (1975).

Argentina (1976).

Wow.

That is SEVEN coups in 22 years.

And FIVE coups in FIVE years.

In five DIFFERENT Latin American countries.

How the fuck did that happen?

Did they all just spontaneously get infected with anti-communist fervor???

It seems our CIA was “watching” dissidents in Argentina and Uruguay.

And don’t forget about the Brazilian “death squads”.

With whom the CIA worked.

This communism thing must be really powerful.

Granted, it’s a fucked-up, inefficient system.

A perverted, perverse system.

But was it really necessary to “disappear” and murder all these people over???

Why not just let capitalism show its merits?

Capitalism is a value-creating juggernaut (it is!).

Why did the U.S. government feel so threatened by communism?

One reason was the USSR (which no longer exists).

All those Soviet Republics.

That giant monolithic block.

Let’s name ’em:

Armenia

Azerbaijan

Belarus

Estonia

Georgia (Tbilisi, not Atlanta)

Kazakhstan

Kyrgyzstan 

Latvia

Lithuania

Moldova (Moldavian SSR)

Russia

Tajikistan

Turkmenistan

Ukraine

Uzbekistan.

Wow.

How many is that?

15.

The U.S. has 50 states.

So we are more impressive, right?

The USSR covered about 8.6 million square miles.

The USA covers about 3.7 million square miles.

The Soviet Union was twice as big as America.

And it was (WAS!) communist.

And it had (and HAS!) nuclear weapons.

ICBMs.

Intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Hell, they even have hypersonic missiles now.

And the USA doesn’t.

So Russia (the main successor) could definitely fuck us up (WIPE US OUT).

But that’s not what they wanna do.

They just want us to get the fuck off their doorstep.

Because if they wipe us out, they know we will also (simultaneously) wipe them out.

And we should understand this equation too.

But apparently we don’t.

Because we have led a NATO (Now A Terrorist Organization) that has continuously gobbled up former Soviet territories for the past 30 years (since the fall of the USSR in 1991).

But I understand why America was concerned.

I understand the concept of fighting communism in Vietnam.

I respect those soldiers who went.

Maybe that war needed to happen.

Maybe the United States was right for fighting.

But let’s be frank:  what’s the strategic significance of Vietnam?

There is none.

Unless you’re in the heroin business.

Which may be the main reason we were ACTUALLY there.

Same with Afghanistan.

Heroin.

Poppies.

Oil?

The pipeline across Afghanistan?

Sure, maybe.

But that never materialized.

And why were we in Bolivia?

And Peru?

Cocaine.

Perhaps.

The “Cocaine coup” in Bolivia.

1980.

When the mafia took over the country.

With the help of Klaus Barbie.

Who worked for American intelligence (CIA?).

By the way, Russia is still the biggest country on Earth.

6.6 million square miles.

But they didn’t come to Mexico.

They don’t have a mutual-defense treaty with Canada.

They don’t have troops and military bases on our border.

Hell, they don’t even have nukes in Cuba anymore (Havana being 230 miles from Miami).

Tallinn (Estonia [part of NATO]) is 230 miles from Saint Petersburg, Russia.

Are there nukes in Tallinn?

Probably not.

But there are NATO troops in Estonia.

Right on Russia’s fucking border.

And same with Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, and Norway.

NATO was not content to border Russia with merely Norway for 50 years (since 1949).

NATO saw fit to add Poland in 1999 and the Baltic countries in 2004.

FIVE NATO members border Russia.

That is unacceptable.

USAoutofNATO.

Now!

NoMoreNATO!

America first!

Who founded Operation Condor?

Pinochet?

Hmmm.

Don’t forget about Orlando Letelier.

Car bomb.

D.C.

Pinochet.

Operation Condor.

30,000 dead in Argentina alone.

Nuns.

Anyone even tangentially-Marxist.

I hate Marxism as much as the next capitalist (I am a proud capitalist!), BUT YOU DON’T FUCKING KILL MARXISTS JUST BECAUSE THEY HAVE ADOPTED AN INEFFICIENT ECONOMIC PHILOSOPHY!!!

Violent Marxists are another thing.

I have no tolerance for violent Marxists.

Whether they be BLM or Antifa.

But there should be a proportionate riposte.

If somebody commits and arson, YOU ARREST THEM.

You don’t just indiscriminately kill people.

Rule of law is the best way.

Rule of man is a pitfall.

There is, however, a problem.

The 2020 election was stolen.

And I believe Trump left office.

I believe he threw us to the wolves.

I believe our military leaders are pussies.

But Vladimir Putin, who was presented with an immediate threat on his doorstep (a creeping invasion by NATO that he personally oversaw and had patience for FOR 30 YEARS), actually did something.

So I respect Putin more than I respect Trump.

Putin, at this rate, is going to save Russia.

Trump, at this rate, will have no America left to save.

I respect Putin more than I respect the American military’s top leaders.

The American military, at this rate (if they ever decide to actually PROTECT the country), will have no America left to protect.

Death flights.

Taking dissidents out to sea by plane or helicopter and dropping them in the water.

Argentina.

Chile.

Disgusting.

Something the French also apparently did in Algeria.

Bodies washing up in Buenos Aires.

1977.

Kidnapped babies.

Illegal adoptions.

Babies taken to punish mothers who are in jail.

Don’t have a different economic philosophy.

Or we will kidnap your children.

Disgusting.

Latin America as one big network of torture and psychological warfare.

DINA in Chile (Pinochet) and SIDE in Argentina.

Propaganda.

Counter criticism.

Cultivate national pride.

I love America!

I really do.

But the best thing for America to do right now is to get the fuck out of NATO.

America first!

Operation Condor was going to murder a Uruguayan opposition politician.

And leaders of Amnesty International.

That’s pretty fucked-up!

Operation Condor really had a “if you see something, say something” mentality.

A big police state across the entirety of Latin America.

Number of dead as a result of Operation Condor:

Paraguay:  2,000

Chile:  3,196

Uruguay:  297

Brazil:  366

Argentina:  30,000

Archives of Terror.

Archivos del Terror (Spanish).

Arquivos do Terror (Portuguese).

Found in a police station in Paraguay.

4 tons of documents.

[14 tons for V-2]

Operation Condor:  50,000-90,000 people killed in South America

Condor ended in 1983 after Argentina’s defeat in the Falklands War.

The military dictatorship was ousted and democracy restored.

Desaparecidos.

The disappeared.

Perpetrators of Operation Condor who were executed:

General Carlos Prats (Chile)

Uruguayan MP Zelmar Michelini

Uruguayan MR Héctor Gutiérrez Ruiz

former Bolivian President Juan José Torres

Argentina was involved with the Cocaine Coup of Klaus Barbie in Bolivia.

1980.

Italian fascists in South America.

December 1977.

Two French nuns and several founders of Madres de la Plaza de Mayo disappeared.

Put on death flights.

Dropped in the ocean.

Remains washed up on beaches south of Buenos Aires in December 1977.

Remains identified.

A commission.

COVID.

Forced disappearances.

Crimes against humanity.

Kudos to writer Ernesto Sabato.

Argentina.

Getting to the bottom of the 30,000 dead/missing/disappeared.

Life in prison:

Jorge Rafael Videla (Argentina [d. 2013])

Emilio Eduardo Massera (Argentina [d. 2010]) P2 Masonic lodge member

Roberto Eduardo Viola (Argentina [d. 1994])

Armando Lambruschini (Argentina [d. 2004])

Orlando Ramón Agosti (Argentina [d. 1997])

Omar Graffigna (Argentina [d. 2019])

Leopoldo Galtieri (Argentina [d. 2003])

Jorge Anaya (Argentina [d. 2008])

Basilio Lami Dozo (Argentina [d. 2017])

In 1986 and 1987, amnesty laws were passed to protect military officers involved in human rights abuses.

What?!?

No more prosecutions of the Dirty War.

In 1989-90, the leaders of the junta were pardoned.

An attempt at “healing”…

FUCK THAT!!!

Massera was pardoned in 1990 and lived to be 85 (d. 2010).

Massera imprisoned again in 1998.

Viola was pardoned in 1990 and died four years later.

Viola served a mere seven years in prison.

Lambruschini pardoned in 1990.

Later came under house arrest (2003).

Died 2004.

But here’s an interesting fact.

Lambruschini’s 15-year-old daughter was murdered in 1978 when a bomb was placed under her bed by an Argentine left-wing guerrilla organization.

Equally disgusting.

All because one side loves communism and the other side hates communism.

Fucking idiots!

But Operation Condor started in 1975.

So was this payback?

Either way, it’s disgusting.

Murdering children is the lowest of the low.

Total insanity.

Total EVIL!

Agosti.

Convicted of eight counts of torture.

Served a mere three years and nine months.

Was accused of 88 murders.

11 abductions of minors.

Was pardoned in 1990.

Graffigna was initially acquitted.

2003 arrested again.

Was not sentenced until 2016.

Was found responsible for the abduction, torture, and murder of a married couple in 1978.

The woman was eight-months-pregnant.

The child was born and given to an Air Force Intelligence operative.

Galtieri was sentenced in 1986 to 12 years in prison for human rights violations during the Dirty War.

He was pardoned in 1989.

Still received an Army pension for the rest of his life.

Invited to military parade in 2002.

New charges of kidnapping of children and disappearance of 18 people brought against him in 2002.

Because of his poor health, he was allowed to remain at home.

Bullshit!

Anaya was acquitted in 1985.

Spain intervened in 1997 because some of their citizens had disappeared during the Dirty War.

Extradition requested.

Request denied.

Criteria amended.

Proceedings proceed.

Extradition ceased.

Overturned.

Extraditions continue.

Heart attack.

House arrest.

Dozo was acquitted in 1985.

1989 sentenced to eight years.

Pardoned in 1990.

Didn’t even lose his rank.

Came under same extradition request from Spain.

What happened?

Lived until 2017.

Brazil’s military dictatorship lasted 21 years.

1964-1985.

Brazil also had a bullshit amnesty law that protected the human rights abuses of the military leaders.

In 1978, the Uruguayan Army crossed into Brazil and kidnapped two activists and their children:  ages five and three.

The Uruguayan Army made the mistake of capturing two Brazilian journalists during this operation.

This probably saved the lives of the couple and their children.

Otherwise they would have been tortured and dropped in the ocean on a death flight.

But the couple was tortured and imprisoned for five years.

The children were sent to live with grandparents in Montevideo because the whole operation had been fucked up by the presence and arrest of the Brazilian journalists (and the ensuing international attention of this particular case).

In the case of the Brazilian reporters, they were actually kidnapped by the Brazilian military regime.

Uruguay also passed a bullshit amnesty law.

No one ever got in trouble for torturing the couple.

It is likely that two ex-Presidents of Brazil were assassinated as part of Operation Condor.

João Goulart (“heart attack” )and Juscelino Kubitschek (“car accident”).

Goulart was likely poisoned.

Pinochet was arrested in London in 1998.

The “big wedding” was Franco’s funeral in Spain.

That’s when Pinochet met Italian fascist Stefano Delle Chiaie.

It is quite possible that Pablo Neruda was murdered by the Pinochet regime.

Reagan finally withdrew support for Pinochet after the Chilean Army set two protestors on fire.

We’ll end with this.

Colonia Dignidad.

Chile.

Germans.

Nazis.

Internment, torture, and murder of dissidents in the underground tunnels of a farm known as the Dignity Colony (Colonia Dignidad).

1970s.

During Pinochet regime.

Leader of Colonia Dignidad:  Paul Schäfer.

German fugitive.

Colonia Dignidad later changed its name to Villa Baviera.

This facility existed about 200 miles south of Santiago from 1961-2005.

Sexual abuse and torture of young children were committed there.

Torture and execution of political dissidents (under Pinochet) were committed there.

Schäfer spent a mere five years in prison at the end of his life.

He had been a rumored child molester (in Germany) since 1945.

He lost his job as an Evangelical preacher on account of this.

In 1959, he was charged with sexually abusing two boys.

He fled.

The Chilean ambassador to Germany invited him to Chile.

He set up a cult near Parral, Chile (the Colonia Dignidad).

Schäfer had a bit of David Koresh about him.

A coup against Salvador Allende was organized at Colonia Dignidad by Germans including Roberto Thieme.

Schäfer began punishing children in his cult by electric shocks to their genitalia.

After the coup, Colonia Dignidad became a secret detention, torture, and execution center for DINA (the National Intelligence Directorate under Pinochet’s military government).

Then the biological weapons production began.

#biolabs

Nazis in Ukraine.

CIA Nazis.

CIA protecting Ukrainian Nazis after WWII who should have been subject to Nuremberg.

Schäfer used sedatives on children and then raped them.

The farm contained “subterranean living containers”.

Tunnels.

Schäfer was charged with all matter of crimes.

He fled.

He was found in 2005 in Buenos Aires.

There was a plethora of military weaponry buried at Colonia Dignidad.

2006:  Schäfer sentenced to 20 years for abusing 25 children.

He was found guilty on five counts of child rape.

The compound was surrounded by barbed wire and had searchlights and a watchtower.

There were underground prisons.

There may have been cooperation between the BND (Klaus Barbie’s employer from 1965 onwards) and Colonia Dignidad.

Only German was spoken inside the colony.

Children were “imported” from German.

Schäfer first arrived in the early-1960s with kidnapped children.

Illegal adoptions.

Torture in the tunnels.

Torture specifically tailored to their personality.

At least 100 murders at Colonia Dignidad.

A Soviet-born math professor from Penn State disappeared while hiking near Colonia Dignidad in 1985.

Escapees of the colony claim that the facility housed former Nazis.

But who did Chilean secret police operative Michael Townley report to about the DINA/Colonia Dignidad links?

Fucking INTERPOL!!!

Was the head of INTERPOL in 2005 also on the CIA payroll (as the head of INTERPOL from 1968-1972 had been)???

What Townley seems to have done right is expose Colonia Dignidad as a LABORATORY ON BIOLOGICAL WARFARE!!!

Biological experiments were done on political prisoners at Colonia Dignidad.

Now here is the fucking kicker.

The CIA and Simon Wiesenthal have both proven that Josef Mengele was at Colonia Dignidad.

This South American network for escaped Nazis was partially supported by Juan Perón in Argentina.

Was Klaus Barbie at Colonia Dignidad?

I would not doubt it.

Former SS and Gestapo TAUGHT torture methods at Colonia Dignidad to the Chilean secret police.

Just as Barbie would later do in Bolivia–teaching the Bolivian military.

Hartmut Hopp was Schäfer’s “right hand man” at Colonia Dignidad.

He went with Schäfer at age 17 to Chile in 1961.

Michael Townley, an American-born former agent of Chile’s DINA (wait…what?!?  how the fuck did he get that job???) pled guilty to the 1976 car-bombing murders of Orlando Letelier and Ronni Karpen Moffitt.

There was a plea bargain.

He was not extradited to Argentina (where he was wanted for the 1974 murders of Chilean General Carlos Prats and his wife).

He was convicted in absentia in Italy for the 1975 murder attempt on Bernardo Leighton.

What was Townley’s specialty (apart from being a prolific assassin)?

Chemical and biological weapons.

And who did he develop these for?

For his employer DINA.

With the help of Colonel Gerardo Huber and DINA biochemist Eugenio Berríos.

Townley moved to Chile in 1957 at the age of 15.

His dad worked for Ford.

In Chile.

Townley came back to Miami.

Hooked up with anti-Castro Cubans.

Prats and his wife were killed with a radio controlled car bomb.

Enter Italian fascists again.

Townley was the go-between for DINA and Avanguardia Nazionale.

Enter Stefano Delle Chiaie again.

Connection to DINA.

Townley got a mere five years and two months in jail for the murders of Letelier and Moffitt.

Whether truthful or not, DINA’s now-deceased chief Manuel Contreras claims that Townley was partially working for the CIA when he murdered Letelier and Moffitt.

This was around the time that Lt. Gen. Vernon Walters was Deputy Directory of Central Intelligence (CIA).

Walters proposed an American military intervention in Italy in 1961 if the Socialist Party had won.

Townley give us the goods on the Laboratorio de Guerra Bacteriológica de Ejército (Bacteriological Warfare Laboratory of the Army) that was located at Colonia Dignidad.

Carmelo Soria (a Spanish diplomat) was assassinated in 1992 with sarin gas produced at Colonia Dignidad.

It is thought that Pablo Neruda was assassinated with an injection of Staphylococcus aureus.

The sarin gas was produced with the expertise of biochemist Eugenio Berríos.  

Other bioweapons Berríos produced were anthrax and botulism.

Berríos also produced cocaine for Pinochet.

There is a suspicion that he worked for both drug traffickers and the DEA.

Former Chilean President Eduardo Frei Montalva was likely killed with a poison devoloped by Berríos.

Did Operation Condor continue as La Cofradia?

Don’t underestimate Chile’s role in Haiti.

MINUSTAH.

Eduardo Aldunate Hermann.

Berríos producing “black cocaine”.

Gerardo Huber also worked on the DINA biochem program.

Stepan Bandera.

2010.

Awarded title Hero of Ukraine.

By Viktor Yushchenko.

Banderites.

Massacres of Poles in Volhynia and Eastern Galicia.

Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN).

And here’s the magic bullet, you fuckers:

Mykola Lebed.

Leader of OUN-B.

Responsible for the genocide of Poles in Volhynia and Eastern Galicia.

Died in 1998 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (aged 89).

Why?

Because he had “a relationship with the Central Intelligence Agency during the Cold War”.

His Prolog (or Prologue) Research Organization in New York (where he emigrated) was funded by the CIA.

Lebed gathered intel on the Soviet Union.

The CIA paid him for this.

The CIA shielded Lebed (as late as 1991) from prosecution for war crimes (aka “his wartime connections to the Nazis”).

How many people did Lebed massacre?

50,000-100,000.

And the CIA hired him.

Yes.

Putin is right.

Ukrainian Nazis exist.

And they have for a long time.

And we’re not just talking about the Azov Battalion.

Lebed was the chief of a Nazi Abwehr school for espionage and sabotage in 1939-1940.

Lebed took over Stepan Bandera’s faction in western Ukraine.

During AND AFTER the Cold War, the CIA supported the OUN.

What groups are we talking about?

Svoboda.

Right Sector.

Ukrainian National Assembly — Ukrainian National Self Defense.

Congress of Ukrainian Nationalists.

Babi Yar/Babyn Yar.

Ukrainian Auxiliary Police.

Made up of people from Ukrainian People’s Militia.

Svoboda. 2014. Euromaidan. Major role.

Yatsenyuk (installed by U.S./Soros coup) had three Svoboda ministers.

Sich Battalion formed by Svoboda for war in Donbass.

Why is billionaire Ukrainian Jew Ihor Kolomoyskyi an apologist for Svoboda?

He’s the second or third richest person in Ukraine.

Kolomoysky has triple citizenship: Ukraine, Israel, and Cyprus.

Why would a Jew fund the Azov Battalion?

Why is it that Zelensky’s Jewishness seems to automatically remove him from the list of possible Nazis?

If there’s one Nazi-supporting Jew in Ukraine (and there is…Kolomoyskyi…the second or third richest person in the country), why can’t there be two???

The Propaganda Game [2015)

Here is a perfect documentary.

It teeters for a second.

Early.

Because it shows two of the most vile, reprehensible propagandists in the world.

Susan Rice and Barack Obama.

But it lets them speak.

The film lets Rice and Obama make fools of themselves.

[and it doesn’t take these two idiots long]

Then we are immersed in a richness of inquiry which befits the home country of our director.

Spain.

But Álvaro Longoria’s film is about a wholly different place.

North Korea.

I was lucky enough once to visit Mr. Longoria’s hometown of Santander.

Though I was not there long, I found it odd that we (me and my traveling companions) boarded our plane on the runway.

A Boeing 737, I believe it was.

So we are talking about perhaps 200 people.

On a runway in Spain.

With a little control tower.

I must admit.

The operation was not heartening.

But then again, I’ve taken a propeller plane from Sacramento to San Francisco.

The world likes to think of America as filthy rich.

But we still have propeller planes for some of our shorter routes.

Flying over San Francisco Bay in a propeller plane wasn’t exactly my idea of relaxation either.

But so then…what do we think of North Korea?

If we listen to people like Susan Rice and Barack Obama (neither of whom, categorically, can be trusted), then we are to shudder at the thought of the DPRK.

Well, our director Mr. Longoria has given the most fair, measured approach to a very controversial subject.

And his final product (the film) is so much the better for it.

To wit, Mr. Longoria does not presume to think for his viewers.

He lets you decide.

If you are looking for bias in this film, you will have to look pretty hard.

Perhaps, you will reason, Mr. Longoria is a Spanish leftist and therefore he gives North Korea the benefit of the doubt.

On the contrary, one might reason that the director is a very (VERY) savvy propagandist himself…and therefore, his documentary is largely an exercise in reverse psychology.

I must admit.

When I heard the voices of Rice and Obama, my internal monologue of opprobrium almost caused me to lose my lunch.

But I stuck with it.

And I’m so glad I did.

What is at issue in this film, and in the frozen conflict zone of which North Korea is half, is the discipline/technique/art of propaganda.

If you are very dumb (and I doubt you are, as you are reading this illustrious blog), you will believe everything you hear about North Korea.

You will believe CNN.

You will believe Martha Raddatz.

You will believe George Stephanopoulos.

To call these two “presstitutes” is really being too kind.

They make Rice and Obama look like saints.

Those of the Raddatz/Stephanopoulos ilk in the United States journalistic community are really worthless individuals.

Mostly because they have ceased to BE individuals.

They aren’t even drones.

They are more like little Lego pieces of poisonous honeycomb.

Inhuman.

But they’re not alone.

Throw in Diane Sawyer.

Actually (and I’ll throw the lefties a bone), throw in Bill O’Reilly.

All of these journalists are generally less than nothing when it comes to their global contributions.

And so it only makes the case of the DPRK stronger (for better or worse) when such née-individuals (including emasculated presstitutes) insult North Korea.

And so it is very clear that North Korea is the target of an immense amount of propaganda.

HOWEVER,

the DPRK seems itself to be quite prodigious in the art of manipulative communication.

Or, propaganda.

So our director lets the two sides go at it.

It’s almost like two Charlie Brown schoolteachers (Othmars both) having a verbal altercation.

The West:  “Blah blah blah blah HUMAN RIGHTS blah!”

North Korea:  “Blah blah blah blah IMPERIALISTS blah.”

We must credit North Korea with restraint.

The people.

Polite.

Keep in mind, this is a focus on the people.

What kind of people live in North Korea?

[well, Koreans…obviously]

Adults, children…male, female…

And so the cynic will cry “Potemkin village” very early on in this one.

But it is worth watching till the end.

Most intriguing is the figure Alejandro Cao de Benós de Les y Pérez.

Here’s an idealist if ever there was one.

But that’s what we must remember about North Korea.

It is a country of extreme idealism.

Let me frame it with slightly different diction.

It is a country of immense idealism.

[ah…we even got some alliteration there!]

Mr. Cao is, or was, Spanish.

Now he is a North Korean.

He is a spokesman for the DPRK.

As we say here in the West, he’s “all in”.

He digs their chili.

He’s drinking the Kool-Aid.

We want some of whatever he’s smoking.

[you get the picture]

But I must say…

Mr. Cao is an extremely (immensely) articulate individual.

To hear him tell it (and he does so with genuine conviction), North Korea is the last bastion of communism.

China has sold out to market forces (capitalism).

The Soviet Union sold out Stalin (Cao actually makes this claim).

[and, he asserts, China sold out Mao]

Vietnam is now thoroughly capitalist.

[that might be a direct quote]

So does Mr. Cao have a point?

Well, perhaps he does.

But there are doubtless few self-respecting communists [more to this sentence after brackets] who would hold up North Korea as a beacon of socialist governance.

Communist, socialist, Trotskyist…

It all begins to run together for us heathen imperialists.

Ah!

There’s that other buzz word.

Imperialism.

Indeed, if you look at the U.S. military bases in South Korea and Japan (which this documentary illustrates as a sort of “ring of fire” [pun intended]), the imperialism charge is not without evidence.

But this is really the quintessence of what Nick Tosches calls “intellectual parlor games”.

Meaning, we could be here all day.

I’m at nearly a thousand words (and so are you, if you’re still with me) and I haven’t even begun to truly scratch the surface of the imbroglio that is the 38th parallel.

North latitude.

Simply put, the U.S. has a vested interest in creating and propagating propaganda about North Korea.

[which does not mean that all of the reportage is made-up…indeed, the best propaganda has a kernel or modicum of truth…sometimes even a heaping spoonful…North Korea certainly does not seem to have the whole “public relations” thing down yet]

And conversely, North Korea has a vested interest in creating and propagating (mostly for internal, domestic purposes) propaganda about the United States and capitalist economies in general.

[and granted…the United States has done some incredibly daft stuff…the likes of which could be spun into a thousand tales of horror for 10,000 years]

What really complicates matters are nuclear weapons.

North Korea, we are told, has twenty (OH MY GOD!  20!!!) nuclear weapons.

The United States has sixty-eight-hundred (6,800) nuclear warheads in various states of readiness.

I hate to sound like Ted Turner (and it’s sad when Mr. Turner becomes a voice of reason), but there seems to be a rather glaring discrepancy there.

Oh!

But one side is responsible (I’ll let you guess) and the other side is reckless (guess again).

Of course, nuclear weapons have never been used in war…except by the United States.

Twice.

And so every society has its propaganda.

I will never feel very good that my country nuked two Japanese cities.

Somewhere between approx. 125,000 and 250,000 Japanese people (at least half of them civilians) were vaporized and/or bombarded with lethal radiation by Fat Man and Little Boy.

I know that the U.S. Department of Defense (then known as the Department of War and Department of the Navy, respectively) isn’t selling Girl Scout cookies.

But Harry S. Truman’s “display” on live targets is a rather hard pill to swallow.

We are supposed to think statistically.

Think of how many lives we saved (by, counterintuitively, squelching perhaps a quarter million OTHER souls).

I guess maybe after six years of war, we were insane.

They say it only takes 100 days.

Of warfare.

Any man (or woman).

No matter how mentally strong.

Literally insane.

Beyond that point.

But we were talking about North Korea…

Mr. Longoria is more of a scientist than me.

Our director, Mr. Longoria.

He meditates on the problem.

He is not rash.

Granted, his access to the “hermit kingdom” compels him to be open-minded (if only for the duration of his stay [and in strictly “apparent” diplomacy]).

It seems evident to me that Álvaro Longoria is a very formidable filmmaker.

I wonder what he would have made of our recent American election?

[when Trump supporters learned to hate Hillary…and Hillary supporters learned to hate Trump]

In retrospect, the United States has just been the battlefield of an immense propaganda war.

The winner (for the time-being) was and is Donald Trump.

But the war was so ugly that things are still not back to “normal” in the USA.

Perhaps they never will be again.

And that is also the lesson of The Propaganda Game.

This substitutes for bullets when you cannot shoot.

When destruction is mutually-assured, colder, icier methods prevail.

Sneaking, surreptitious oozing of lies and falsehoods.

All’s fair in war and love, they say.

And “close enough” only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.

“They” say that too.

“They” say a lot of things.

Indeed, “they” are the most quotable group around.

Now, if we only knew who “they” were…

Chuck Norris vs Communism [2015)

Dear Ilinca Călugăreanu,

You have made a beautiful film.

Which the world needed to see.

And the title made me think it would be imperialist propaganda directed at North Korea.

But I could not have been more wrong.

Because Romania has touched my heart so many times.

And so I am glad to add another name to the list of auteurs.

Cristi Puiu, Corneliu Porumboiu, Cătălin Mitulescu, Cristian Mungiu…

And now Ilinca Călugăreanu.

Yes, it is only right that a young female director should bring us this story.

This documentary.

Ms. Călugăreanu, born in 1981.

Because this film is very much about the 1980s.

VHS.

Videocassettes.

And the situation in Romania.

Chuck Norris is merely a placeholder.

A meme which has undergone a certain détournement.

But there is no substitute for communism in this tale.

Perhaps, authoritarianism.

You see…

if you tell people to do one thing…and you’re really heavy-handed about it,

they will almost certainly do the opposite.

At some point.

And Ms. Călugăreanu’s very persuasive hypothesis is that videocassettes brought down the Ceaușescu regime.

And so there is very little way around this impasse without talking political economy.

First, let us address the very astute current Russian minister of culture Vladimir Medinsky.

The esteemed Mr. Medinsky has famously (?) called Netflix “U.S. government…mind control”.

Or at least that’s how The Washington Times (who needs the Post?) framed it.

But let’s investigate.

Let’s have Mr. Medinsky’s words and not just a CliffsNotes, elevator-pitch summation of them.

He says [translated],

“And, what, you thought these gigantic startups emerge by themselves? One schoolboy sat down, thought for a bit, and then billions of dollars rained down from above?”

That is pursuant to the funding which helped birth Netflix (and, presumably, other American companies with what Mr. Medinsky feels is a global, insidious reach).

He continues [translated],

“It turns out that that our ideological friends [the U.S. government] understand perfectly well that this is the art form that is the most important…”

Ahh, cinema…

And Vladimir Lenin himself knew it!

Mr. Medinsky then seems to evoke the Leonard Cohen of “Tower of Song” when he says [translated],

“They understand how to enter everyone’s homes by getting into every television with the help of Netflix…”

Leonard Cohen (God rest his soul) said it thus:

“Now you can say that I’ve grown bitter but of this you may be sure
The rich have got their channels in the bedrooms of the poor.”

Ah!

What a lyric!!

And that was in 1988!!!

So our director, Ilinca Călugăreanu, knows that of which she speaks.

Because the grip of Ceaușescu was beginning to slip.

But let’s give Mr. Medinsky one more say [translated],

“And through this television, [they get into] the heads of everyone on Earth. But [Russians] don’t grasp this.”

Ok.

Now why was Mr. Medinsky so upset?

Well, because Netflix undertook a vast expansion this past summer.

Indeed, the article from which I’m pirating these quotes (yes, translations are intellectual property) dates from June 23, 2016.

The same article notes pointedly that Netflix’s expansion into Russia, plus a vast number of new territories, means that the streaming service is now available in 190 countries worldwide.

Wait a minute…

How many countries are there, you might ask?  196.  Or 195.

Poor Taiwan, they just can’t catch a break.

So then you might say, well…what the fuck?!?

What countries is Netflix NOT in???

It appears those countries are China, North Korea, Syria, and…Crimea?

Suffice it to say, the international “community” is not unanimous in their appraisal of Crimean statehood.

Is it part of Russia?

Is it part of Ukraine?

What do the words Republic of Crimea even mean if its not an independent country?

Which brings up the specter of “frozen conflict zones”.

I’m guessing that Netflix might be unavailable in Abkhazia, Nagorno-Karabakh, South Ossetia, and Transnistria.

But I digress…

Because we are on to more specific matters.

There are at least two major ways in which Americans can view the Romanian communist period as it has been depicted in motion pictures.

First, Americans can sympathize with the repression of the Romanian people.

Any doubters should do a little digging on the PATRIOT Act.

Indeed, the psychosis of surveillance (which is mentioned in Chuck Norris vs Communism) could not field a more forbidding bogeyman than the National Security Agency.

And so, dear peoples of the world, would you feel more or less safe living in the same country in which the NSA is headquartered?

Exactly.

Second, Americans could extrapolate Ms. Călugăreanu’s hypothesis to mean that countries such as China will eventually implode as a result of the fulminating combination of repression and technology (even, perhaps, with a starring role for entertainment).

All of that is to say that movies COULD bring down China or North Korea or even Iran.

[Notice the non-Netflix countries…Syria is without, but apparently Iran does have the service.]

Which is to ultimately say, Mr. Medinsky’s fear is completely warranted.

What is at stake in Russia?

The fall of Putin.

A sea change in leadership.

And I will be quite frank.

There is no doubt that Netflix’s catalog is heavily biased towards globalist propaganda.

One of the most glaring areas is India.

I can’t tell you how many watery, transparent premises there are on Netflix which are some permutation of a young person rebelling against a repressive culture.

It’s almost like they’re churning these formulaic films out in a factory.

Boy marries girl from lower caste.  Mayhem follows.

Girl goes to human rights court.  Happily ever after…

Boy rebels against father’s traditional ways [read:  religion].

I mean, at a certain point it’s just pathetic.

But we must hand it to Netflix for some (SOME) of their selections.

Actually, I have found a good many gems on the site.

But it is a very biased (and historically-uninformed collection).

In general, history doesn’t exist for Netflix.

Unless that history is the Holocaust.

Then, of course, there are a plethora of scenarios to “inform” you about the Nazis.

Make no mistake (my best Obama voice), the Nazis were bad.

Really bad.

But do we need 10 fucking films about the Holocaust?

And if Schindler’s List is the zenith of the genre, God help us…

But I digress again…

Chuck Norris vs Communism is a very beautiful film.

It’s about rebellion.

It’s about the little things we do to assert our existence.

And in this case, it’s about a translator (a voiceover dubbing artist) who reached the hearts of innumerable Romanians.

Irina Nistor.

Whether it was Chuck Norris, or Jean-Claude Van Damme, or Sylvester Stallone, Irina’s voice made the dialogue come alive in Romanian.

But it was a subversive activity.

“Imperialist” films were not allowed in Romania.

But Romania was falling apart.

To take the interviewees of our documentary at their word, their lives sucked…without “video” night.

But we must be clear.

Everything (EVERYTHING) about this enterprise was illegal in Romania.

First, the videos had to be smuggled across the border.

Then they had to be copied and dubbed (voiceover).

Then they had to be distributed.

Then some brave schmucks took the risk of screening these films on their TV sets (for a few lei, of course).

But it was dangerous business.

Especially if you were the kingpin.

So it is then strange to meet this kingpin of video piracy face to face.

Zamfir.

Not the guy with the panpipes.

No, this was Teodor Zamfir.

Made a pretty penny.

But the fascinating thing (by Călugăreanu’s hypothesis) is that he completely changed Romanian culture.

The seeds of revolution were sown by Dirty Dancing, Last Tango in Paris, The King of Comedy

And especially by the action films.

Rocky, Rambo, Lone Wolf McQuade…

And so, if you want to piss off a communist (or socialist, or whatever they’re going by these days), you can go with the familiar tack,

“Didn’t they already try that?  Wasn’t it an immense failure?”

I don’t know.

But I don’t doubt the faces of those who lived through Ceaușescu.

No national cinema has been nearly as effective as the Romanian in communicating to the West just what life under communism was like.

And so Romania becomes our lens into the Soviet Union and its satellite states.

I know there are Russians who fondly remember communism.

Let’s be clear:  capitalism can also suck.

Change and upheaval can be deadly.

They say, “Watch the price of eggs” (to demonstrate how a free market dictates prices).

But we see a very similar discontent in the Middle East.

Is this democracy?

Fuck this!

Yes, America has made some mistakes.

And so we should watch everything with a critical eye.

Be your own critic.

Be like Emerson.

Be bold.

And then double back.

Waffle.

Live by palimpsest.

Because you are the ultimate philosopher.

For your life.

I can’t tell you.

And you can’t tell me.

We have to learn.

It must be the right time.

To receive a particular lesson.

I draw courage from Irina Margareta Nistor.

But most of all, I draw courage from the Romanian people.

Perhaps my country’s Hollywood crap (the stuff I took for granted) was just the stuff necessary in the dark times.

Entertainment.  Ass kicking.  Escape.

But the Romanian cinema of today inspires me beyond words.

And so let us remember, whether we are capitalists or socialists, the price paid by the people of Romania in December 1989.

Was it 1,100 people?

11,000 people?

110,000 people?

It’s troubling that nobody knows for sure.

But even if it was a thousand people.

They didn’t just get trampled by goats or run over by garbage trucks.

It wasn’t a bloodless revolution.

At least 1000 people.

They saw their moment.

They seized on a moment.

They capitalized on their opportunity.

There was something which impelled them not to just sit at home and listen.

I salute these brave souls who went out into the streets.

For a thousand people to have died, it seems rather inconceivable that there wasn’t an attempt made by the government to “restore order”.

That’s the line which can’t be crossed.

That’s when a government has lost its legitimacy.

Some stories are twisted.

And full-blown civil wars do erupt.

But it appears, in the end, that repression lost.

And repression, censorship, and heavy-handed tactics (whether adopted by socialists or capitalists) should, by historical lesson, be most strictly avoided.

It is human nature.

The people will not tolerate being treated like livestock.

And something as seemingly inconsequential as VHS tapes can tip the balance.

Sudden Impact [1983)

This is not a popular time to have sympathy for cops.  That’s too bad.

This is not a popular time to have sympathy for the FBI.  That’s unfortunate.

Not a popular time to champion the CIA.  Pity that.

No love for the NSA.  Shame…

We get one version of events.  So much so that we chase after an alternative version.  Which is credible?

Police have a very sacred trust.  Once upon a time it was phrased as “to protect and serve.”

Abuse of power disgusts us.  The pendulum swings to the other end.

Jingoism breeds contempt.

détournement

There are several wars on in the world.  The U.S. is involved widely.

It’s not a popular time to say something kind about the military.  Bummer.

What is at issue in all of these parallel phrases?  Justice and compassion.

Efficacy.  Human rights.

Right and left.  Conservative and liberal.  Even the widely disparaged neoconservative movement.

I have been quick to find fault with the so-called neocons.  But there is an interesting fundamental point about them that perhaps few know:  they used to be liberals.

I am reminded of Realpolitik.  Kissinger.

The tendency creeps in to apologize for the shameless.

An apologist, after all, works in myriad ways.

It is good that all of these thoughts come to the surface upon viewing what many “serious” film critics would consider to be sub-par pulp.

Let me start (continue) by saying that Sudden Impact is a brilliant film.

There are moments when the balance between directing and starring (acting) seem to be too much for Eastwood, but those few moments are mostly on the front end of this picture.

Though it be, perhaps, sacrilege to suggest such, this is probably the best Dirty Harry movie.

The reason is directly attributable to Eastwood’s auteurish guidance.

Though the setting of San Paulo somewhat mirrors Bodega Bay from Hitchcock’s The Birds, it is mostly the same director’s Vertigo which provides a wellspring from which Eastwood draws liberally for the symbol-laden mood of this affair.

Sondra Locke is formidable as the Kim Novak character.  Though Callahan himself never succumbs to catatonia, Locke’s sister in the film does.  It reminds us of Jimmy Stewart’s incapacitation after seeing Madeleine “die” the first time (again with the Vertigo references).  Of particular note is the camera work which follows Locke’s first killing in Sudden Impact.  The circular, woozy pattern makes us think of Novak’s plunge into San Francisco Bay.

And that’s just it:  Eastwood had the balls and brains to drag Hitchcock into the Dirty Harry series (itself set in San Francisco).

What this film achieves is imparting humility to armchair DCIs (like myself) who think we have it all figured out.  Sometimes distance is good…for planning.  Sometimes you need to hear a few bullets buzz past your ears to realize that a hot war is on.  It’s not always easy to know who’s shooting…and from where.

There are multiple fronts.  I often ponder my own mental weakness.  Ultimately, no one has died in vain.  The challenge is for us as a nation and a world to get better…quickly.  It ends up sounding meaningless, but it’s about all one can say about this spinning globe of chaos on which we live.
