The “news” is popping like popcorn. It is a mathematicians delight. All these exploding kernels can be reduced to variables then run through computer simulations. A problem faced however is the sheer quantity of new “pops”: it is time-consuming to keep dealing with the eruption of new variables. Someday, artificial intelligence will be able to quickly process the steady avalanche of popcorn news items. For now though we are overwhelmed by the current “future shock” and many human mental systems just “shut down” due to the overload.
Seeking to assimilate the eruption of “news” pops, the Popcorn News was born. But then it was discovered as of yesterday that someone called “Tat” had already laid first claim to the popcorn news concept. He has already been doing “Tat’s Popcorn News.” A video on this subject and others was released by Ersjdamoo to YouTube last evening, under the title, “Popcorn News: Hillary Feels Refreshed.”
I do not include my latest video at the top of today’s blog entry, due to another video taking precedence. Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, killed in the Benghazi attack of September 11, 2012, has been frustrated in her search for the truth about what really happened. (See video hopefully viewable at top.) A problem though is that her concern has been somewhat hijacked by Republican politicians who are more interested in their Party than in the truth. Thus the issue has become politicized and is being portrayed as “just politics.”
In the video clip, Patricia Smith is practically in tears. She just wants answers from “my government.”
In yesterday’s blog entry I erroneously attributed authorship of American Arabesque: the Role of the US in the Revolts in the Arab Streets to Dr. Stuart Jeanne Bramhall. Bramhall in fact was a reviewer of the book. The author is really one Ahmed Bensaada. The book is difficult to obtain in the United States. Apparently it was first published in French, and there may not be an English translation. (Do not be confused by a different book, also titled American Arabesque.)
A book titled 21st Century Revolution cites Bensaada’s book and describes how he posits “the direct involvement of the CIA-backed Serbian group Otpor in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) ‘revolutions,’ as well as a series of joint conferences organized by the CIA-backed Center for Nonviolent Action and Strategies (CANVAS) and the State Department, in which Arab activists were brought to the US for training in ‘nonviolent’ organizing techniques…”
The book 21st Century Revolution itself supports that there has been a new CIA strategy, beginning in the 1990s. If a CIA-backed dictatorship begins to “lose their grip”, then the CIA preemptively “co-opts the natural (violent) insurgencies that arise to topple” the CIA-backed dictatorship. The CIA “themselves instigate popular unrest, using the ensuing chaos to install a puppet of their choosing.”
The book, 21st Century Revolution, is written by Dr. Stuart Jeanne Bramhall, and is offered as a free e-book at Dr. Bramhall’s web site.  Unfortunately, for the moment anyway, I cannot find how one is supposed to obtain the “free e-book” via the web site. (Google had a “snippet view” from which I obtained partial quotes.)
This is Lesson Number One: “Arab Spring”, seemingly spontaneous uprisings which began in late 2010 and early 2011, while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, was really fomented by the CIA, acting under orders from the State Department.
Hillary Clinton “served as the 67th United States Secretary of State under President Barack Obama from 2009 to 2013.” 
Lesson Number Two: CIA and the Clintons, Bill and Hillary, go way back, at least to Arkansas when Bill Clinton was its governor. He permitted the “Agency” to use Arkansas factories to make untraceable weapons and he allowed CIA contract agents to train Contra pilots on rural airstrips in support of the war in Nicaragua – effectively evading the Congressional ban on military aid to the Contras.  Bill and Hillary are a “CIA couple”, charged the late Sherman H. Skolnick.  Furthermore, if memory serves, Hillary Clinton is a higher-ranking CIA officer than is her husband, Bill, according to Skolnick.
All of which might explain how Hillary Clinton skated so smoothly through congressional hearings on October 22, 2015. Republicans could not sufficiently explore larger “Arab Spring” connections, since that was an off-limits CIA “national security” area. Instead the focus was generally narrowed to the Benghazi attack and loyal Democrats ran interference for fellow-Democrat Hillary. A sad “collateral damage” though is that Patricia Smith cannot get the truth about what happened to her son.
