McCain, Giant of the Senate

Senator John McCain may not be a Martian. But he is a giant – the Giant of the Senate.

Or so reports Reuters: Sarah Binder, a scholar at the Brookings Institution, is reported as saying that McCain’s colleagues perceive him as a ‘giant’ of the Senate. [1]

The Giant of the Senate is not feeling so well these days. McCain has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer. Already they are inscribing “Giant of the Senate” on his tombstone, as they had previously done with Senator Ted Kennedy, “The Lion of the Senate.”

When they secretly decide that you are history, they break out the chisel and begin inscribing your tombstone.

On the other hand, in 2015 former president Jimmy Carter announced that melanoma had been found in his brain. Yet later that same year medical scans no longer showed any cancer. [2] So maybe John McCain will have a similar occurrence.

In the short video hopefully viewable at the top, you can see McCain in Ukraine. He was there in December 2013. Standing with McCain was the leader Of Ukraine’s ultra-Nationalist Svoboda Party, Oleh Tyahnybok. The “optics” were bad on this one: Did someone forget to tell the Giant of the Senate that the Svoboda Party is neo-Nazi?

After the stunning election of Donald Trump, The Washington Post reported that McCain “is serving as a shadow secretary of state, trying to clean up or refute statements and positions that [President] Trump has made.” [3] (Many have alleged that former-president Barack Obama has established a “shadow government” in Washington, DC at his newly acquired mansion.) Now Reuters also suggests the Giant has been working as a shadow secretary of state. “McCain has traveled the globe on trips some analysts say are efforts to soothe the concerns of U.S. allies…” [1] With shadow secretary McCain no longer undermining the efforts of the legitimate secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, this already reduces the odds of war with Russia. Who will the new “shadow secretary” be?

McCain Not a Martian

Kyle Odom has pleaded guilty to gunning down Coeur d’Alene pastor Tim Remington in 2016. Did the reptilians get to Odom, or did Odom come to his senses? (Background: Kyle Odom Pleads Guilty, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, July 19, 2017.)

Isolated in a lonely jail cell, with few means of resistance, the amphibious Martian humanoids may have been working on Odom day and night, finally forcing him to plead guilty.

In the so-called Odom “Manifesto” (really a manuscript, not a crazed “manifesto”), Odom provides a list of “Noteworthy Martians.” Among these are Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, and Congressman Steve Scalise of Louisiana. But to my surprise, neither Senator Ted Cruz nor Senator John McCain are listed as noteworthy Martians.

Ted Cruz fits in to the strange case of Kyle Odom in that Rafael Cruz, father of Ted Cruz, met with Pastor Remington on May 1, 2016, in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. [1] Rafael Cruz was in Idaho to help celebrate the miraculous recovery of Remington, who had been shot six times with hollow-point .45 caliber bullets. [2] [3]

If the above Cruz-Odom connection seems tenuous, it is no less tenuous than connections being made between the son of President Donald Trump and Russian “collusion.”

Other noteworthy Martians given by Kyle Odom in his manuscript include Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Barbara Mikulski, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, Congressman Devin Nunes, and Congressman Luis Gutierrez.

Remember these wise words from David Icke: “The reptilians need our love.” It is through the power of love, not through bullets, that the reptilians will be defeated.

Kyle Odom Pleads Guilty

Kyle Andrew Odom, el cazador de reptilianos, reads the video hopefully viewable above. El cazador de reptilianos means “hunter of the reptilians”. The 10-minute video, although in Spanish, can still refresh your memory about the Kyle Odom case.

“Kyle Odom pleads guilty to gunning down Coeur d’Alene pastor in 2016”, reads the July 18th headline from Idaho’s Spokesman-Review newspaper (online). Odom faces a maximum of 25 years in prison. Did the reptilians get to Odom, or did Odom come to his senses?

Also battling the reptilians is President Donald Trump. He achieved a great victory when he thwarted their plans to place Hillary Clinton on the throne. Now we have a summer of stasis: each side is entrenched, facing each other across the no-man’s land.

Already, with the Health Care revision’s failure, the reptilian press is suddenly urging both sides to work together to fix Obamacare. This is a tacit admission that indeed the program is deeply flawed. The demise of the Health Care revision “will test the ability of Republicans and Democrats to stabilize an insurance market serving some 10 million Americans in time for 2018,” reports Reuters.

That’s all for now. Just an important update on the Kyle Odom case, which needed to be covered. Enjoy the summer stasis. Look out though for September which could see sudden drama.

Crock Of the 17 Agencies

It was unprecedented: All 17 U.S. intelligence agencies had agreed that Russia was to blame for election hacks.

Except now, as it turns out, the 17 agencies story was a crock. Robert Parry, who broke many of the Iran-Contra stories for The Associated Press and Newsweek in the 1980s, was the first to notice a tiny “correction” in The New York Times. “The New York Times has finally admitted that one of the favorite Russia-gate canards – that all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies concurred on the assessment of Russian hacking of Democratic emails – is false,” Parry reported on June 29, 2017. [1]

Then, on June 30th, The Associated Press issued a scanty “clarification”: Oops! The “assessment”, as it turns out, was based on information collected by just three agencies and then “published by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which represents all U.S. intelligence agencies.” [2]

For months there had been parades and brass bands shouting about how “all the 17 U.S. intelligence agencies agree!” Then, at the end of June, a mute blind man carrying a sign at midnight strolled dark alleys proclaiming in small print the “clarification.” Few noticed.

Earlier, Oliver Stone had been challenged about his interview of Russian President Vladimir Putin: “But Stone! Don’t you realize that all the 17 agencies agree it was the Russians!?” To this, Stone responded it had only been an assessment, far less than iron-clad. At the time, the mainstream news had not yet issued their “clarification.”

So why do they call them “fake news”? In the above you can find a clue. The “fake news” concept has been in the foreground lately. But the criticism goes back at least to 1988, when Noam Chomsky’s book, Manufacturing Consent, was first published.

Camel’s Nose In the Tent

What is a camel?

A camel is a horse invented by a committee. (So goes the old joke.)

Former Secretary of State John Kerry had an idea. “Let us form a committee,” he suggested. Kerry had this brainchild after the Obama White House was stunned that Hillary Clinton had lost the election. “How could this have happened?” everyone wondered. “It must have been the Russians,” they decided. [1]

But what to do about these Russians? This had been Barack Obama’s secret struggle. Even before the election loss, the White House had been weighing options, due to embarrassing leaks of emails, also blamed on Russia. [1]

In the end, Kerry’s committee idea was nixed. The Republicans would not go along with a bipartisan committee idea, the Obama White House surmised. [1]

Various options had been weighed during Obama’s secret struggle. For months there had been talk, talk, talk. “Enough of talk!” finally cried Susan Rice, National Security Advisor. Rice “ordered NSC staffers to finalize a ‘menu’ of punitive measures to use against Moscow. The list that took shape was a distillation of ideas that had been circulating for months across three main categories: cyber, economic and diplomatic.” [1]

Note that one of the “categories” above was “cyber.” Plans had been devised “that would hit entire sectors of Russia’s economy. One preliminary suggestion called for targeting technology companies including Kaspersky Lab, the Moscow-based cybersecurity firm. But skeptics worried that the harm could spill into Europe and pointed out that U.S. companies used Kaspersky systems and software.” [1]

On June 25, 2017, Ersjdamoo’s Blog reported on how while Barack Obama was undergoing his secret struggle (geheim kampf) he had finally approved a covert measure that authorized planting cyber weapons in Russia’s infrastructure, the digital equivalent of bombs that could be detonated. [2]

On or about June 28th came news on how a cyber attack had wreaked havoc around the globe. A virus was believed to have first taken hold on Tuesday, June 27th, in Ukraine. Russian companies such as oil giant Rosneft and a steelmaker were also crippled. The malware seemed to be “a variant derived from code known as Eternal Blue believed to have been developed by the U.S. National Security Agency.” [3]

In the cyber category plans devised against Russia, skeptics in the Obama administration had worried that the harm could spill into Europe. [1] The cyber attack of June 27-28 wreaked havoc around the globe, with companies in Poland, Italy and Germany seriously affected, among others. [4]

“The virus is spreading all over Europe, and I’m afraid it can harm the whole world,” stated one expert. [4]

Flodden Field Of RussiaGate

It is like the battle of Flodden Field, with Hillary Clinton as Constance De Beverley, Barack Obama as Lord Marmion, and Donald Trump as Sir Ralph De Wilton. (Background: Obama’s Struggle, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, June 27, 2017.)

To mute and to material things
New life revolving summer brings;
The genial call dead nature hears,
And in her glory reappears.
But oh! my country’s wintry state
What second spring shall renovate? [1]

Constance De Beverley (Hillary Clinton) and Lord Marmion (Barack Obama) forged a letter (RussiaGate) which falsely implicated Sir Ralph De Wilton (Donald Trump) in treason. [1] And now the decisive battle is being fought in Flodden Field (news outlets).

On the side of Constance De Beverley and Lord Marmion is The Washington Post. They added a salvo to the saga on June 23, 2017, with their story about “Obama’s Secret Struggle”. Like the lengthy poem Marmion, by Sir Walter Scott, the Post’s tale requires careful reading. As the ebb and tide of battle wages on, further dramatis personae have been discovered in the mosaic of RussiaGate.

On October 7, 2016, Susan Rice, National Security adviser, summoned Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak to the White House and handed him a message. [2] That name, Sergey Kislyak, is an ominous marker: all who come in contact with Sergey can be branded a Pawn of Putin and a colluder. When Sergey walks down the sidewalk, everyone crosses the street to avoid coming in contact.

Moving the Suite

“Moving the suite” was a code word used in the Obama White House. During Obama’s secret struggle to sort out options on RussiaGate, a suite of spaces in the West Wing was occupied by Denis McDonough, White House chief of staff, Susan Rice, and Avril Haines, Deputy national security adviser and former deputy director of the CIA under John Brennan. Securing their support on any national security issue came to be known as “moving the suite.” [2]

Blacked-Out Screens

It was a dark and stormy night. Down in the basement of the West Wing, a video feed from the main room coursed through some National Security Council offices, allowing senior aides sitting at their desks to see — but not hear — when meetings were underway. Yet when RussiaGate discussions began, the video feed was shut off! The blacked-out screens were seen as an ominous sign among lower-level White House officials. [2] Was Sergey Kislyak being smuggled in through a secret passage?

Obama’s Struggle

With a $60 million book deal, what shall Barack Obama title the opus? A clue comes from the June 23rd article in The Washington Post: “Obama’s Secret Struggle”. The title could be, “My Struggle”. Each chapter could cover various struggles Obama has had. The final chapter would be about his “secret struggle” when he was told about the Russian hackers.

When the book gets translated and published in Germany, its title would be, Mein Kampf (My Struggle).

The RussiaGate labyrinth gets ever more intricate. It began simply enough back in July 2016. Embarrassing DNC emails appeared. A way to distract attention was urgent, with the Democrat Convention just three days away. And so Hillary Clinton’s secret team devised a story more astounding than the emails themselves: We were under secret attack from the Russians!

The RussiaGate labyrinth gets ever more intricate. “Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive!”

That quote is from a long poem by Sir Walter Scott: Marmion: A Tale of Flodden Field. It involves a forged letter by Lord Marmion and his mistress, Constance De Beverley, which falsely implicates Sir Ralph De Wilton in treason. Constance ends up being walled up alive. Marmion dies on the battlefield of Flodden Field. [1]

Ersjdamoo’s “secret struggle” is to make sense of the lengthy Post article, “Obama’s Secret Struggle.” The 17 U.S. intelligence agencies had been corralled into endorsing what CIA chief John Brennan relayed to then-President Obama in August 2016: That a mole deep inside the Russian government had transmitted news about Russian President Vladimir Putin being involved in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the U.S. presidential race. (Background: Timeline Of RussiaGate, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, June 26, 2017)

“Despite the intelligence the CIA had produced”, reported the Post, “other agencies were slower to endorse a conclusion that Putin was personally directing the operation and wanted to help Trump.” [2]

So, in this phase of Obama’s kampf (struggle), he ordered subordinates to “get agencies to agree on the intelligence that Putin was seeking to influence the election.” [3]

The U.S. spy agencies reached unanimous agreement in late September about RussiaGate. [2] And so it came to be that the 17 U.S. intelligence agencies all agreed.

Eight Gangsters

Eight gangsters are also emphasized in the Post’s “secret struggle” article. These are referred to as the “Gang of Eight”. They are hardly a “gang” though. This is just some lurid seasoning added to the tale. The dramatic “Gang of Eight” were the majority and minority leaders of both houses and the chairmen and ranking Democrats on the Senate and House intelligence committees. [2] So what if they gathered together? That does not make them a gang.

Federal Takeover of Voting Systems

With artificially-induced RussiaGate paranoia on the rise, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson attempted to centrally secure U.S. voting systems. But some of the States rejected Johnson’s plan, “calling it a federal takeover.” [4] Brian Kemp, the Republican secretary of state of Georgia, denounced Johnson’s proposal as an assault on state rights. “I think it was a politically calculated move by the previous administration,” Kemp said, adding that he remains unconvinced that Russia waged a campaign to disrupt the 2016 race.
