Iran demonstrations fizzle out via suspicion of outside provocation


By Hamed Ghashghavi, Tehran




 


[Editor’s Note: Hamed Ghasghghavi is the son on an Iran-Iraq war vet who fought during that long eight year war where US supplied chemical weapons were used not only against the Kurds, but as WMD against the Iranian people.

Iraq also rained Scud missiles down on Iranian cities when Iran had nothing to use as a deterrent of to retaliate with.
These hard lessons are burned into the minds of their people and why they will never agree to foreign influence limiting their defensive forces, which of course include having a credible deterrent and retaliation capability.
International law provides for such, the right of self defense, which includes the ability of destroying bases used to attack you. Most people are not aware of this. Now you know why. Demanding that a country not have a credible defense is an act of aggression in itself, which rains on conning the public that your target is a threat, when the threatening party is their own country.
Hamed presents us with what is not only an Iranian viewpoint on the recent protests, but from someone who is very involved in monitoring Iran’s domestic and foreign policy. He has also been one of the key organizers of events like the New Horizon Conferences which Gordon and I hope to be attending in March.
As you read through Hamed’s article it will be quite different from anything you have read in Western media, which is why we are running it, so you have these new data points to add into your own analysis of what is really going on.
One of the biggest surprises for me below were the corruption convictions which included close associates and relatives of major political figures, something we rarely see here in the West. One of these has been President Rouhani’s brother, proof that an independent judiciary is certainly functioning in Iran … Jim W. Dean ]
– First published … January 18, 2018 –
Two weeks ago, first demonstration was held in Mashhad and the main reason was people’s total dissatisfaction of credit institutions and banks, which took their money as a hostage for several months.
Some months ago I saw myself people protesting peacefully in front of Iran’s Parliament and Central Bank. Actually, banks in Iran have effective powers (sometime more than European banks) and the interests are between 15 to 25%, invested in building projects and other matters that normally they should not!
We can never deny that citizens, including myself, are facing financial problems due to the situation of the country, essentially after president Rouhani’s government has invested most of its time and energy on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Although Rouhani has promised that Iran’s economic and financial crisis will be resolved after that deal, however, the crisis is yet escalating.
Of course the American and European embargos have partly influenced that economic crisis but the inefficiency of Rouhani’s administration was in the origin of that. Supreme Leader since years has been speaking on Resistive Economy (Economy of Resistance), and the importance of internal economy (indigenous one based on nation’s production and employment) while many officials (particularly in Rouhani government) believe the unique solution is to be in touch with European and American economies.
So after Leader issued the principles of that Economy of resistance, authorities began to repeatedly use that expression in their interviews and speeches which urged Supreme Leader to choose “Economy of Resistance: Production and Employment” as the name of current year (in Persian calendar).
Since that deal, many European companies such as Peugeot, Citroen, TOTAL and others have come to Tehran and signed multiple contracts with both governmental and non-governmental sides. Practically, and as the Supreme Leader has affirmed, these contracts have been only signed and nothing has changed on the ground.
Besides, people have realised that Rouhani’s promises have not been fulfilled. Even if there were any economic advantages out of this deal, the benefits were for the big companies and not the middle class.
As these days I hear even some friends saying that European states would like to stay committed to JCPOA, I would like to add this point toward European attitude on that issue:
Francesco Condemi, a French documentary filmmaker in his work entitled “L’affaire Peugeot (2013)” has affirmed that the Zionist Lobby in France has been putting a lot of pressure on Peugeot Company to cut its ties with Iran Khodro (Branded as IKCO, an Iranian multinational automaker headquartered in Tehran).
Consequently, this emphasises that the Europeans are not committed to any kind of deal with Iranian and once their interests are threaten, they are the first to turn again you.
Not only based on that documentary and statistics but also according to FranceTV analysts after France itself, Iran is world’s greatest market for the products of that company while even in Europe, the French cars are the third priority after German and Italian cars, which have better qualities.
Holding a peaceful demonstration in Iran is a guaranteed right as the constitution stipulates.
None of the first demonstrations witnessed in the beginning were violent until enemies’ agents infiltrated and by burning national flag and martyrs’ portraits, attacking some military buildings and damaging public places and setting them on fire, they deviated the demonstrators from their initial reason.
IN RECENT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, IRANIAN PEOPLE BY 73.03% PARTICIPATION HAVE SHOWED THAT THEY SUPPORT THE ISLAMIC REVOLUTION AND RECOGNISE THE MAIN REASON FOR IRAN’S STABILITY AND SECURITY IN SUCH A REGION IS THE SUPREME LEADER’S WISDOM.
And honestly how % of American and European citizens participate in their presidential elections? Sayed Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader, in a public speech, on 15 February 2017, said:



“I say that to country’s officials, if people participate in 22 Bahman (The date on the Persian calendar coinciding with the anniversary of 
the February 11, 1979, Islamic Revolution), demonstration, it does not mean that they’re satisfied with what we do.
People are unsatisfied based on many issues happening in the country, people don’t like discrimination, anywhere they see some discrimination they feel bad and suffer, the same when they see hypothyroidism, the same when they see (authorities) being indifferent about their problems, when they see the things not advancing, they’re impatient.
22 Bahman has to be counted separately, people’s resistance against an ambushed enemy to swallow Iran is one thing, which has been illustrated in 22 Bahman, and their expectation from us, the officials, is a separate issue!”
“if people took to the streets on 22 Bahman it mean sthat they are unsatisfied with what the government does. The Supreme Leader added, “People’s grievances cannot be ignored: recession, unemployment, and inflation are important issues.
He also said,
“One European official said to one of our officials that if it was not for the JCPOA, a war on Iran would be certain. This is just a lie! Why are they talking about war?
Because they want to engage the minds in war; however, the real war is an economic war, sanctions and ruining the levels of employment activity and technology industries within our country. They draw our attention to a military war so we may forget about these other wars. A real war is a cultural war.”
Undoubtedly, the right of people to demonstrate peacefully is an essential right, but we should be careful of foreign infiltration. We cannot forget what has happened and still is happening in Ukraine, Georgia and some other countries in East of Europe.
In addition to that we discovered the media manipulation on Libya and Syria by people like French Self-proclaimed philosopher Bernard-Henri Lévy and George Soros and various fabricated demonstrations which have been filmed in a theatre in Qatar and have been pretended as they have taken place in Libya.
We witnessed the same in Syria by making up the girls and boys as they have been brutally wounded by Syrian army or in Ukraine we saw to be on the Maidan and after that it has been discovered that the photos have been taken in a studio.
During the recent events in Iran, the Western Mainstream Media has utilised the same videos for different Iranian cities. BBC Persian, VOA Persian and Manoto were trying to stimulate chaos in any possible ways. It is worthy to mention that almost 200 Persian-language television channels have been founded in Iran after 2009 presidential elections.
These channels provoked people to reject their government by calling them to demonstrate and come to streets. In addition, they brainwash the minds of the Iranians through multiple series and movies that attack their ideological-cultural lifestyle, values and conventions.
The TV series and movies in which we can’t understand who has sexual relation with whom, if a women is pregnant, is this result of having sex with his husband or boyfriend and they promote also other types of intellectual and sexual perversions.
All of these international channels are backed and financed by Western powers, mainly British and American intelligentsia. Besides, so-called NGOs like Brookings Institution’s Centre for Middle East Policy (Saban centre), International Republican Institute, Freedom House, United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Albert Einstein Institution, Council on Foreign Relations, American Enterprise Institute and many others are trying their best to interfere in the Iranian affairs.
TRUMP & OTHERS WHO, IN THE NAME OF HUMAN RIGHTS, ARE HARDLY WORKING TO CREATE CHAOS IN IRAN, WHILST, THEY IGNORE THEIR WORLDWIDE CRIMES, KILLING, MASSACRING, TORTURING, DOING GENOCIDES, RAPPING, VIOLATING, AND STEALING THE WEALTH AND RESOURCES OF POOR NATIONS.
Iranians, people and elites, in one hand condemn the violence and in another are against the corrupted authorities who have to pay the price and people must see the result of this as Leader said. “In my eyes, those authorities who betrayed nation’s confidence have to be executed”.
Nevertheless, many officials including Major General Mohsen Rezaee view that we should not put the infiltrated anti-governmental individuals with the peaceful citizens in the same package. Those peaceful people request to have a better economic situation, which is a legitimate and fundamental right.
Definitely, Iran, Russia, Syria, Iraq and Hezbollah have defeated the American’s so-called “War on Terror” and their project for the Middle East which has been started since 911.
All extremists sectarian Wahhabi groups failed to fulfill the American dream. Accordingly, creating chaos in Iran is their last step, but, fortunately, the Iranian people are wise enough to confront these conspiracies.
It is significant that pro-government demonstrations are occasionally held in democratic states such as Iran. People have taken to streets, despite the extremely cold and snowy weather, to slam the anti-government violent activities taking place. However, Western and Saudi stream media is not covering these pro-Leader and pro-Islamic Republic demonstrations as themselves they don’t have such a popularity.
Remarkably, one of the people’s slogans condemning foreign agents infiltrated in initial protests was, “WE THE PEOPLE TAKE CARE OF STOPPING THE ANTI-REVOLUTION DEMONSTRATION AND YOU THE OFFICIAL TAKE CARE OF ECONOMIC PROBLEMS.”
Here are some examples during past days:
(Dec. 29): Tabriz
US military bases have formed a strategic envelope around Iran, as well as many terrorist extremist groups such as Al-Qaeda on the Eastern borders and ISIS on Western borders that were founded by US intelligentsia. However, they have proven a complete failure and instead have strengthened Iran.
Supreme Leader Sayed Ali Khamenei has mocked US president Donald Trump and said that he would fail in his hardline stance against Iran, just as his “smarter” predecessor Ronald Reagan did before him.
“Reagan was more powerful and smarter than Trump. He was a better actor in making threats. He also moved against us and shot down our plane,” Leader Khamenei emphasized.

We knew that last year ISIS attack of Tehran was founded and sponsored by Saudi government and even before that Ben Salman said “we will bring war into Iran”. And as we look at the recent events in Iran, most related hashtags were twitted from Saudi Arabia.
As I’ve been asked by many friends about Ahmadinejad current state I add this point as a big FORMER fan of this man:
I can imagine how understanding of Iran’s domestic policies is difficult for the foreign audience and that is why Western mainstream media is confused about it. That’s why in my last article I explained about Iran’s presidents and I suggest to those who would like to get why and how Ahmadinejad is in such a situation, to take a read to the related part of this article.
(That’s a part of the Iran’s political-religious system by French Le Monde Diplomatique)
We all know that judiciary power in Iran is politically independent as we witnessed many relatives of officials as Hashemi Rafsanjani’s son (Mehdi)’s, president Rouhani’s brother (Hossein Feridon), vice-president Jahangiri’s brother (Mehdi), Ahmadinejad’s deputy (Mohammad Reza Rahimi) were all convicted of corruption and are currently jailed.
Ahmadinejad has recently started to attack judiciary power because his close friends have been arrested or jailed, in Iranian news agencies or websites, except one or 2, until now there is no confirmed information about Ahmadinejad’s arrest or his probable involvement in recent provocations.
But once again as a big FORMER fan of Mahmoud, (and himself he knows how much I loved him and he was a very important figure for me) I hope this news to be true as this ex-great man became very selfish and arrogant.
And last surprising point: after Trump stupid decision to move American embassy to Jerusalem and recognizing that holy city as capital of unhuman and criminal false entity, the whole world was talking about Palestine and now after Iran’s recent events, who talk about that matter?
Let’s finish that article by quoting Iran’s Supreme Leader’s yesterday (Jan 9) reaction to recent events. He discussed the triangular model, or the pyramid of hierarchy scheme, to describe who was responsible for the flow of money and carrying out the orchestrated events in Iran recently.
The hierarchy of the pyramid/triangle is listed from top (1) to bottom (3) in Ayatollah Khamenei’s own words:
  1. “The plot was made by Americans (US) and Zionists. They have been plotting for many months to initiate riots in small cities and eventually move towards the center.”
  2. “Money was provided by a wealthy government near the Persian Gulf. Well, these plots are costly. The Americans are not willing to spend money while such accomplices are already there.”
  3. “The third side of the triangle consists of the US submissive henchmen: Mohajhedeen-E-Khalq Organization, the murderous MEK.”
“The rulers in the United States, firstly, know that they didn’t achieve their goal: they might try to repeat it, but they know that can never achieve it. Secondly, they damaged us during these days, they know there will be some sort of retaliation.”
“The vast manifestations arising from millions of Iranians against recent riots is no ordinary event. Nowhere, in this world, have we witnessed the same exact phenomena. I am well informed on this. This great, coherent people’s movement against the enemies’ conspiracy, with such organization, awareness, and enthusiasm is unique among the world, and it continues for forty years now.”
“It’s not simply a question of a number of years. It is a fight of a nation against an anti-nation; a fight of Iran against anti-Iran; a fight of Islam against anti-Islam: this has always existed and will persists.”
“All actions that the enemies have waged against us, during the past forty years, are counter-attacks against the Islamic Revolution. The revolution uprooted the enemies’ political position in the country; now they (the enemy) uses counter attacks, frequently, and is defeated each time. The enemy acts and cannot advance because of the resistance: the strong national and popular barrier.”
“Once again, the nation with its full power tells the United States, the UK and their Londoners, ‘they couldn’t make it happen this time, and will never achieve their goals.’”
“Various analyses were proposed during these days. All these analyses had a common point: the point which allows the righteous and truthful desires of the people to be distinguished from and the brutal and destructive movements of another group. The two must be distinguished,”
“That a person is deprived of a right and objects to it: or that protesters – hundreds of people — come together and gather to express their concerns, is one thing; and that a number of the people from this gathering misuse this motive–to insult the Quran, to insult Islam, to insult the flag, to burn the Mosque, commit sabotage or set the country on fire–is another thing. The two should not be mixed.”
“The people’s wants, appeals, or protests have always existed in this country, and persist today. Well, like these problematic financial institutions, some of the institutes have been problematic and have made some people very dissatisfied.”
“These appeals must be dealt with and heard out. They must be answered as much as possible,”
All of us — I do not say “others must follow”— I myself am responsible; all of us “must follow this approach.”
“I would like to add that these events had a distinct triangle pattern or scheme. Events did not emerge overnight; but they have been carefully organized. My observances are based on information from sources of intelligence: some are made obvious by their own statements, some have been obtained through intelligence operations.”
“They were prepared months ago. The media of the MEK admitted to this; they said, recently, that they were in contact with Americans some months ago, to carry out U.S.’ orders: to organize riots, meet with this or that person, find individuals inside the country to help them fan out to the people. And that it was they who initiated this.”
“They began with a slogan [to catch attention] in opposition to high prices. Well, this is a slogan that everyone likes. They wanted to attract some people with this message, then enter the arena themselves to pursue their evil goals and attract followers. What people did here is this: First, some people came to streets–though not a big number–, however, just as they understood the real intentions behind, the people separated their lines.”
“On the one hand, the rioters shouted ‘my life be sacrificed for the sake of Iran,’ on the other hand, they burned the flag of Iran! The fools did not understand that these two actions simply cannot go together. Well, we hope that you (MEK) die for Iran! But, when have you stood up to the enemies of Iran? Those who have always stood against the enemy of Iran are the devout, believing, and revolutionary people. Who were the 300,000 martyrs of the Holy Defense era? They were these believing and revolutionary men who defended their country. When have you (MEK) died for Iran, that you shout ‘my life be sacrificed for the sake of Iran’?”
“Well, the United States is now angry, extremely furious; it’s not angry with only me; it’s angry with everyone and everything: angry with the Iranian people, angry with the government, and angry with the Revolution of Iran because it was defeated by this massive, retaliatory movement.”
“Now, the US officials have started to talk nonsense; the president of the United States says the Iranian government fears its very own people! No, the Iranian government was born by their people; it is for their people, is created by the Iranian people, and relies upon them. Why should it fear their own people? If the people were not there, no Islamic government would exists!”
“He [Trump] says that the Iranian government is afraid of U.S.’ power. So, if we are “afraid” of you, how did we expel you from Iran in the late 1970’s and expel you from the entire region in the 2010’s?”
“The rulers in the United States, firstly, know that they didn’t achieve their goal: they might try to repeat it, but they know that can never achieve it. Secondly, they damaged us during these days, they know there will be some sort of retaliation. Thirdly, this man who sits at the head of the White House— although, he seems to be a very instable man–he must realize that these extreme and psychotic episodes won’t be left without a response.”
In his final statements Ayatollah Khamenei, the Leader of the Revolution, reminded his audience: “Those who like to make friends with U.S. agents–whether outside or whether, unfortunately, some inside–they also know that this system is strongly standing and will resolve all weaknesses and problems with God’s grace.”

Operations Reinstated under Obama Regime Includes PSYOPS by CIA


- CIA's Long History Of PSYOPS, Propaganda, And Assassination Plots

CIADISINFOCAMPAIGNS.jpg


On Tuesday, Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer made not only a stunning admission to MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, but issued an outright threat against President-Elect Donald Trump, saying that Trump's taking on the Intelligence community regarding their sloppy "Intel" report about Russian propaganda, was "really dumb" because "they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you." Schumer went on to say he had been told the intelligence community was "very upset with how he has treated them and talked about them."


By Susan Duclos


A look at what agencies drafted and coordinated the newly released piece of U.S. propaganda, accusing Russia of providing the truth to Americans, via Wikileaks, of corruption and collusion between the DNC, the Clinton campaign and the mainstream media, we see the first agency listed as  The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

CIA'S LONG HISTORY OF PSYOPS, PROPAGANDA AND POLITICAL ASSASSINATION PLOTSOperation Mockingbird was revealed to the public in 2007, with the declassification of a report that was over 30 years old, called "Family Jewels." Compiled by the CIA in 1973, it refers to a Project Mockingbird and describes a wiretap of journalists. The report was compiled at the request of then CIA director James Schlesinger, and was not declassified until 2007. (Source)

Operation Mockingbird itself was a CIA program to influence media in the US and internationally.

The unit recruited leading American journalists into a propaganda network to help present the CIA's views. It funded some student and cultural organizations and magazines as fronts. As it developed, it also worked to influence foreign media and political campaigns, in addition to activities conducted by other operating units of the CIA. The CIA's use of journalists continued unabated until 1973, when the program was scaled back. When George H.W. Bush was appointed as director of the CIA in 1976, the program of paying journalists for cooperation was announced to have ended. Their voluntary cooperation was encouraged.

The "Family Jewels"  a 702 page document, was dubbed the "skeletons" in the CIA's closet by William Colby, who was the CIA director in the mid-1970s and helped in the compilation of the reports.

According to the introduction of a six-page summary of the "Family Jewels" documents, "The Central Intelligence Agency violated its charter for 25 years until revelations of illegal wiretapping, domestic surveillance, assassination plots, and human experimentation led to official investigations and reforms in the 1970s."

The human experimentation conducted by the CIA is known as MKultra, also known as the CIA's mind control program, but it is the history of plotting political assassinations, which was revealed in the "Family Jewels" documents that is particularly concerning, especially in light of Schumer's assertion that they are "very upset with how he [Trump] has treated them and talked about them," and "they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you."

Via the six page summary of the "Family Jewels" documents, we see the following point, listed as number 11:

The CIA apparently "plotted" the assassination of some foreign leaders, including Castro, Lumumba and Trujillo.  The CIA has no role whatsoever in Lumumba's murder on January 17, 1961. With respect for Trujillo's assassination on May 30, 1961, the CIA had "no active part;" but had a "faint connection" with the groups that in fact did it.

Amazing coincidence that two of the three people the CIA "plotted" to have assassinated, ended up being murdered, yet the CIA claims they weren't responsible... things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Now remember, this summary is dated 1975, but the documents were not declassified and released until 2007, meaning the general public has no idea what clandestine operations, foreign or domestic, against foreign entities or Americans within the U.S., from 1975 to present day, but with their history, I would bet there are even more "skeletons" in their closet.

OBAMA REINSTATES VERSION OF OPERATION MOCKINGBIRD

Under the "History" category of the Operation Mockingbird Wikipedia page, Frank Wisner, director of the Office of Special Projects (OSP) at the CIA, later renamed Office of Policy Coordination (OPC),  which was the CIA's covert action branch, was initially charged with creating an organization focused on "propaganda, economic warfare; preventive direct action, including sabotage, anti-sabotage, demolition and evacuation measures; subversion against hostile states, including assistance to underground resistance groups, and support of indigenous anti-Communist elements in threatened countries of the free world." 

Then came the creation of Operation or Project Mockingbird, which was referenced in the "Family Jewels" documents, but the name was not entered into the congressional record when Congress investigated it in the 1970s.

After 1953, the media network was overseen by CIA Director Allen Dulles, by which time Operation Mockingbird had major influence over 25 newspapers and wire agencies.The usual method was placing reports developed from intelligence provided by the CIA to cooperating or unwitting reportersThose reports would be repeated or cited by the preceding reporters, which in turn would then be cited throughout the media wire services. These networks were run by people with well-known liberal but pro-American big business and anti-Soviet views, such as William S. Paley (CBS), Henry Luce (Time and Life Magazine), Arthur Hays Sulzberger (New York Times), Alfred Friendly (managing editor of the Washington Post), Jerry O'Leary (Washington Star), Hal Hendrix (Miami News), Barry Bingham, Sr. (Louisville Courier-Journal), James Copley (Copley News Services) and Joseph Harrison (Christian Science Monitor).

Note the emphasis in bold print in the quote above and compare the normal practices during the nearly 30 years Operation Mockingbird was an official operation, to what we are seeing play out in the mainstream media today, where reports, quoting unnamed U.S. officials, about CIA reports are conveniently leaked and then  "placed" over at the Washington Post, with citing their own report in more reports, extensively quoted "throughout the media wire service." All of them are also "well-known liberal" and anti-Russian in theme.

It is extremely important to remember as you read further, that in 2013, the Obama administration repealed the Anti-Propaganda ban, freeing U.S. agencies to use propaganda against Americans.

A perfect example was the explosive Washington Post story that unnamed sources had told the Post that "the CIA has concluded in a secret assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency, rather than just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system." Eventually a declassified report was released, to which they still provided not a shred of evidence, and in fact, stated within that report that the "report does not and cannot include the full supporting information."

So, with no evidence provided to the public, the CIA led intelligence reports became national news, repeated by every other news outlet..... none of which have obtained or offered any actual evidence.

A second example, the highly controversial Washington Post report using a shadowy organization, ProporNot, which targeted 200 Independent Media websites, including The Drudge Report, All News PipeLine, Zero Hedge, Infowars and others, claiming they spread "Russian propaganda" during the 2016 election campaign cycle.

Another example, which was widely cited before Washington Post was forced to offer a retraction, which received far less coverage, was the claim and headline that a Russian hacking operation had "penetrated the U.S. power grid." This was cited by almost all the mainstream media, before a subsequent article explained Russian hackers did not target the Vermont facility in question.

Notice how many of these stories are first promoted by Washington Post,  especially those dealing with anything regarding the CIA, when the owner of Washington Post, Jeff Bezos has direct financial ties to the CIA, by way of a $600 million contract with the CIA.

CIA'S PSYCHOLOGICAL OPERATIONS (PSYOPS)

Psychological operations (PSYOP) are planned operations to convey selected information and indicators to audiences to influence their emotions, motives, and objective reasoning, and ultimately the behavior of governments, organizations, groups, and individuals.  The purpose of United States psychological operations is to induce or reinforce behavior favorable to U.S. objectives. (Source)

RelatedPsychological operations units. Sub-category: Central Intelligence Agency

The CIA is  mainly in charge of PSYOPS, and specifically geared towards "influence on public opinion."

At various times, under its own authority or in accordance with directives from the President of the United States or the National Security Council staff, the Central Intelligence Agency has attempted to influence domestic and international public opinion, and sometimes law enforcement.

Via the category "CIA authority to perform psychological operations," we see that Psychological operations was assigned to the pre-CIA Office of Policy Coordination, with oversight by the Department of State. "After the OPC was consolidated into the CIA, there has been a psychological operations staff, under various names, in what has variously been named the Deputy Directorate of Plans, the Directorate of Operations, or the National Clandestine Service."

Other "skeletons" listed in the six page summary of the "Family Jewels" documents, included illegally wiretapping and surveillance on journalists, which brings to mind the huge Obama scandal in 2013, where his administration targeted journalists from the AP and Fox News, with media surveillance reminiscent of the CIA'S antics documented in the "Family Jewels" documents and summary.

BOTTOM LINE

Throughout the election cycle we have seen Donald Trump take on globalists, the political establishment and the so-called elite, but in going head-to-head with the CIA, considering their PSYOPS, Propaganda and political assassination plots, he is now up against an organization that has no problem getting rid of anyone they find a problem, and have been doing so for over half a century.

Their all-out propaganda campaign against Trump and Russia, using the mainstream media, led by the Washington Post, as their bought and paid for broadcasting arm, shows pretty clearly he is already in their crosshairs, and Schumer's threat  tips the scales and makes us wonder if the CIA is already plotting Trump's demise.

The Obama administration has returned America to some very dark days, using the intelligence agencies under his control against political rivals (remember Tea Party targeting by the IRS), pumping propaganda into the minds of Americans, and politicizing the intel agencies to the point where they have now targeted the President-Elect.
