Huge news breaking in the Clinton/Steele Dossier scandal related to Fusion GPS. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Fake News is refusing to cover these developments.
from Zero Hedge:
According to a new report by Middle East Eye, Prince Bandar bin Sultan – Saudi Arabia’s most famous arms dealer, longtime former ambassador to the US, and recent head of Saudi intelligence – was among those detained as part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s (MBS) so-called “corruption purge” that started with the initial arrests of up to a dozen princes and other top officials last weekend.
If confirmed, the arrest and detention of Bandar would constitute the most significant and high profile figure caught up in the purge – even above that of high profile billionaire investor Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal – given Bandar’s closeness to multiple US administrations and involvement in events ranging from Reagan’s Nicaraguan Contra program (including direct involvement in the Iran-Contra scandal), to making the case for the Iraq War as a trusted friend of Bush and Cheney, to directing US-Saudi covert operations overseeing the arming of jihadists in Syria.

Middle East Eye issued the report based on multiple contacts “inside the royal court” and indicates further that the scale of MBS’ aggressive crackdown is much larger than previously reported, and even involves the torture of “senior figures” among those detained:
Some senior figures detained in last Saturday’s purge in Saudi Arabia were beaten and tortured so badly during their arrest or subsequent interrogations that they required hospital treatment, Middle East Eye can reveal. People inside the royal court also told MEE that the scale of the crackdown, which has brought new arrests each day, is much bigger than Saudi authorities have admitted, with more than 500 people detained and double that number questioned.
And shockingly, those sources say that the longtime Saudi ‘deep state’ power broker and liaison with the West, Prince Bandar, is among the detained:
One of the most famous is Prince Bandar bin Sultan, a former Saudi ambassador to Washington and confidant of former US President George W Bush. There is no word on his fate, but Saudi authorities said that one of the corruption cases they are looking at is the al-Yamamah arms deal, in which Bandar was involved.
While no doubt Bandar’s very well-known role in Saudi “oil for arms” programs which have come to define Saudi relations with the West over the past decades is a trumped up and “selective” charge (insofar as the highest levels of the state have overseen such shady dealing) the al-Yamamah deal in particular – which goes back to the mid-1980’s – has been an historical embarrassment to both the UK and Saudi governments (BAE Systems was the prime British contractor involved) for the astounding level of fraudulent accounting exposed in UK courts.
Concerning Prince Bandar’s role in the al-Yamamah deal, Middle East Eye continues:
Bandar bought an entire village in the Cotswolds, a picturesque area of central England, and a 2,000-acre sporting estate with part of the proceeds from kickbacks he received in the al-Yamamah arms deal, which netted British manufacturer BAE £43bn ($56.5bn) in contracts for fighter aircraft.
As much as $30m (£15m) is alleged to have been paid into Bandar’s dollar account at Riggs Bank in Washington and the affair led to corruption probes in the US and UK, although the case was dropped in the UK in 2006 after an intervention by then-prime minister Tony Blair.
But more likely is that Bandar has been caught up in this week’s MBS dragnet for his closeness to Western heads of state and foreign intelligence services. With MBS’ aggressive consolidation of power which could result in ascension to the throne at any moment, and with fate of multiple princes and officials still unknown – not the least of which is now ex-PM of Lebanon Saad Hariri – a shroud of secrecy has resulted in myriad theories concerning what is really happening behind the scenes.
Likely, Bandar has been detained to ensure a communications blackout with Western intelligence and media until MBS’ plans are complete, with the added benefit of ensuring the “anti-corruption” angle to the purges for the consumption of international media.

Yesterday I blogged about that JFK documents release, and the curious presence within the tranche of documents of a Hitler survival sighting in South America that was passed through the CIA’s chain of reportage. My fundamental problem with the document was not what it was reporting, but rather that it was part of the JFK release at all. What does Hitler’s survival possibly have to do with the JFK assassination. Well, obviously in my opinion, it has a great deal to do with it because I argued for a fascist presence and involvement in it in my LBJ and the Conspiracy to Kill Kennedy. One could, I argued yesterday, take the document as a bit of deliberately planted “fake stuff” for the purpose of having a bit of fun at the expense of people like me. But as I noted yesterday, I don’t think this document’s presence in the tranche of documents released was merely “accidental misfiling” or a case of “planted documents” (for whatever purpose,”fun” or otherwise), but was a document somehow genuinely linked – in the intelligence community’s mind – with the assassination. Why?
Very simple: there are a number of odd “fascist details” hovering in the JFK assassination, from Jack Ruby’s curious statements about Fascism in the assassination, to Lee Harvey Oswald’s strange associations with it, from Marine buddies overhearing him speaking German, to the presence of the name, address, and phone number of George Lincoln Rockwell – president of the American Nazi Party – in his notebook, to even stranger connections in New Orleans involving Dr Mary Sherman, famous Cancer Society president Dr Alton Ochsner (and his strange fascist connection to his most infamous patient, Juan Peron), and so on. Given the other fascist traces in evidence in the JFK assassination, I argued that the presence of the Hitler survival document in the tranche was not accidental, nor a bit of deliberate obfuscation, but rather a reflection of an overall pattern.
Well, the same sort of argument might be applied to this article shared by Mr. V.T.:
Interestingly enough, one document confirms the CIA link to the mafia (well-known and discovered and adequately argued by JFK assassination researchers decades ago), by mentioning a CIA briefing on the same subject given in 1961 to then Attorney General Bobby Kennedy. Additionally, there is, toward the end of the article, mention of “Operation Mockingbird,” the agency’s infiltration of major media outlets, and specifically one such journalist was covering the assassination in a prominent American newspaper, a point which raises questions of its own concerning the appearance on American talk radio of certain individuals pushing the Warren Report narrative in the wake of the documents release.
What really struck me however, is again the strange presence of documents having to do with mind control in a supposedly JFK documents release. Again, is this simply a case of “misfiling” or “deliberate obfuscation”, or is the topic somehow germane to the murder of President Kennedy.
Again, the same type of argument as employed for the weird presence of the Hitler survival document seems to be employable here as well, for some assassination researchers have pointed out the strange presence of possible mind control in the midst of everything else, particularly in the case of Jack Ruby. After having shot the alleged assassin of the President on national television during a “routine prisoner transfer”, Ruby was hustled upstairs to the holding cell (the very one that Oswald had just left!), where for quite some time he appeared to be nervous, agitated, out of sorts… and then, when informed that Oswald had died and that it looked like “it would be the (electric) chair” for him, Ruby, rather than becoming more distraught and upset with this news, instead became quite calm and seemed almost relieved. The strange behavior led some to speculate that perhaps Ruby was under some sort of mind control.
… and then, of course, there is the President’s brother, Attorney General and later Senator Robert Kennedy, and his assassin, Sirhan Sirhan…

(1) WHY DID IT TAKE COPS 72 MINUTES TO BREAK INTO SHOOTER’S ROOM?
A new timeline of the October 1, 2017 Las Vegas shooting massacre shows police were outside alleged lone gunman Stephen Paddock’s room on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay hotel 12 minutes after the shooting started, but waited more than an hour to break into the room. (Daily Mail)
2) BROTHER OF LAS VEGAS SHOOTER IS LINKED TO THE 2016 ORLANDO GAY NIGHTCLUB MASS SHOOTING
In the early morning hours of June 12, 2016, a lone gunman named Omar Mateen killed 49 and wounded another 53 inside Pulse night club, a self-described gay dance club in Orlando, Florida, making it the worst mass shooting in the history of the United States — until the Mandalay Bay-Las Vegas mass shooting 14 months later.
Eric Paddock is a brother of alleged Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, 64. Eric is 57 years old and lives in Orlando, Florida.
Talking about his brother before TV cameras, Eric wore a “Central Florida Community Arts” T-shirt.
Here’s the video, which shows the t-shirt to be authentic:
Shepard Ambellas of Intellihub discovered that the Chair of the Board of Central Florida Community Arts is a woman named Sara Brady.
Brady specializes in crisis management and is identified as a public relations representative on the onePULSE Foundation’s official website. Brady’s official website brags that she “has managed some of the biggest crisis and reputation management challenges in recent memory,” and has “worked with Pulse Nightclub after the shocking shooting that made news around the world in June of 2016.”
And oh, about the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting, please see:
(3) CEO OF MGM, OWNER OF MANDALAY BAY, SOLD HIS STOCKS BEFORE THE SHOOTING
The 43-stories Mandalay Bay hotel and casino in Las Vegas is owned by the Mandalay Resort Group (formerly Circus Circus Enterprises), one of the largest casino operators in the world whose properties also include the Luxor casino and hotel in Las Vegas next to Mandalay Bay. Curiously:
- Five top floors of Mandalay Bay (floors 35-59) are occupied by the Four Season Hotel, which is owned by Bill Gates and Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal.
- Another curious thing about Mandalay Bay is its numbering system: the hotel’s levels 40-43 are numbered as floors 60-63.

As the U.S. House of Representatives held its first hearing on climate engineering it is becoming clear that the technology will lead to international governance.
On Wednesday the U.S. House Subcommittee on Environment and Subcommittee on Energy Hearing held the first House hearing on the controversial subject of climate engineering or weather modification. The hearing, titled “Geoengineering: Innovation, Research, and Technology,”brought together members of the House committees as well as representatives of think tanks, scientists, and researchers in the field to discuss the future of geoengineering research and whether the Trump administration should allocate funding.
The push for discussion of geoengineering from the Trump administration should come as no surprise. Back in January 2017, Activist Post reported that “the U.S. Global Change Research Program quietly recommended new studies looking into two specific areas of research involving geoengineering.” With the release of their report, the GCRP became the first scientists in the federal government to formally recommend studies involving geoengineering.
Participants in Wednesday’s hearing include Full Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas), Environment Subcommittee Chairman Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), and Energy Subcommittee Chairman Randy Weber (R-Texas). Witness testimony came from Dr. Phil Rasch, chief scientist for climate science, Laboratory Fellow, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory; Dr. Joseph Majkut, director of climate policy at the Niskanen Center; Dr. Douglas MacMartin, senior research associate, Cornell University; and Ms. Kelly Wanser, principal director, Marine Cloud Brightening Project, Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean, University of Washington.
Before the discussion began, the committee members established a working definition of geoengineering. According to a 2013 congressional report:
The term ‘geoengineering’ describes this array of technologies that aim, through large-scale and deliberate modifications of the Earth’s energy balance, to reduce temperatures and counteract anthropogenic climate change. Most of these technologies are at the conceptual and research stages, and their effectiveness at reducing global temperatures has yet to be proven. Moreover, very few studies have been published that document the cost, environmental effects, socio-political impacts, and legal implications of geoengineering. If geoengineering technologies were to be deployed, they are expected to have the potential to cause significant transboundary effects.
In general, geoengineering technologies are categorized as either a carbon dioxide removal (CDR) method or a solar radiation management (SRM) (or albedo-modification) method. CDR methods address the warming effects of greenhouse gases by removing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere. CDR methods include ocean fertilization, and carbon capture and sequestration. SRM methods address climate change by increasing the reflectivity of the Earth’s atmosphere or surface. Aerosol injection and space-based reflectors are examples of SRM methods. SRM methods do not remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, but can be deployed faster with relatively immediate global cooling results compared to CDR methods.
As the hearing unfolded, Committee Chairman Smith acknowledged that geoengineering “could have positive effects on the Earth’s atmosphere,” but cautioned “we have a lot to learn.” Smith’s outlook illustrated his skepticism of man-made climate change, stating, “While we are not sure this is plausible, some scientists believe it could achieve substantial environmental benefits at a cheaper cost than regulations.”
Smith did acknowledge the “unintended consequences of geoengineering,” drawing attention to the fact that studies have shown altering the climate in one part of the world could have disastrous effects elsewhere.
“One concern is that brightening clouds could alter rain patterns, making it rain more in some places or less in others,” Smith stated. “We still do not know enough about this subject to thoroughly understand the pros and cons of these types of technologies.”
Supporters of geoengineering currently find themselves with a lack of public funding for these programs, as well as a skeptical public. This hearing was aimed at bringing the topic into the mainstream consciousness and potentially garnering support for funding. Chairman Andy Biggs mentioned the need for further study, stating “if in the future the government wants to actually apply the concepts and findings of geoengineering research, we must fully examine both the potential merits and potential pitfalls of this emergent field.”
Kelly Wanser, principal director of the Marine Cloud Brightening Project, also encouraged “governance and regulatory efforts.” Wanser emphasized that oversight should be “rapidly established.”
Joseph Majkut, Director of Climate Policy at The Niskanen Center, mentioned that “Congress has already given limited authority to regulate experiments intent on altering the weather, including changing planetary albedo.” However, Majkut noted, “at this point, those regulations are limited to reporting requirements.” Majkut called for Congress to implement “significant civil and administrative penalties” and potentially criminal penalties for violating the regulations.

CIA Partisans in Media and on Twitter Furious Over Director Pompeo Meeting with VIPS’ William Binney, Undermining their ‘Russia Hacked the DNC’ Narrative
by Harley Schlanger, Rogue Money:
Since LaRouchePAC promoted VIPS and the Adam Carter/Forensicator findings that the DNC emails could have only been downloaded at flash drive speeds by an insider at the scene, Fox News nightly host Tucker Carlson has had Binney and Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) on his program undermining the entire ‘Russians hacked the election’ story. Tucker Carlson’s willingness to cross party lines and question the bipartisan #BlameRussia #BlamePutin narrative for everything has infuriated many ex-spooks and wannabe spooks on Twitter. Last night Carlson repeatedly challenged former DNC consultant turned bestselling book promoter Donna Brazile regarding the failure of the DNC to turn over the servers to the government, never receiving a straight answer from her as to how and why that occurred. Brazile, who had written in her book that she feared for her own life after colleague Seth Rich was gunned down on the streets of D.C., basically hemmed and hawed and dodged the question:
.@TuckerCarlson:"If you believe the Russians [hacked the DNC servers], why didn't the DNC allow the FBI to examine those servers? Why were they given over to a vendor and not the U.S. government's investigators?" #Tucker pic.twitter.com/vxkN0HwnuM
— Fox News (@FoxNews) November 9, 2017
British ‘ex’ GCHQ man Matt Tait, a crony of James Comey’s pal Benjamin Wittes who pushes ridiculous claims of a pro-Trump Republican seeking to recruit him for obtaining Hillary’s 33,000 deleted private server emails from the Russians, has railed against Binney on his Twitter feed. Former CIA agents turned social media starring #NeverTrump ers Ned Price and John Sipher have been apoplectic about Pompeo’s willingness to hear Binney out, denouncing this as a Trumpist corruption of the totally non-partisan intelligence community’s integrity. Nevermind that introducing the Steele dossier into the intel community through Trump hating agency chiefs James Clapper, John Brennan and James Comey in of itself represented a serious, Democratic partisan corrupting of intel collection and analysis. But Sipher in particular has been outspoken in defending the Steele dossier, a trashy piece of oppo research paid for by Hillary Clinton operatives, as a somehow authenticated piece of intelligence (regarding which, now former DNI Clapper would later laughably tell CNN it ‘didn’t matter’ who paid for it, a position that in any other circumstances trained intelligence officers would dismiss as ridiculous).
— John Sipher (@john_sipher) November 6, 2017
In typical spook double speak, Sipher also allows in touting the dossier as legit that it may contain FSB/SVR disinformation fed to Christopher Steele’s sources, as the ‘former’ British spy could no longer visit Russia and had to gather his (bogus) intel remotely. In his arrogance, counting on total deference from Democratic partisans with press passes, Sipher doesn’t think anything of admitting that perhaps partisan Trump hating Democrats running DNI, CIA and FBI may have been punked with disinfo by Putin’s security services. Sipher strikes us as a classic, “Heads I win, tails you lose, and I’m always right” personality.
If — as Republican lawmakers like Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) suspect and former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page has alleged the ‘dirty dossier’ was used as a basis for obtaining FISA surveillance warrants — then the abuse rises to at least the same level or worse as anything Nixon did in unleashing agencies against domestic political enemies. If Binney’s story is just a crackpot claim — and no one in the cyber security community takes seriously the idea that Crowdstrike lied or more likely, conflated multiple phishing attacks on the DNC that may have happened with an insider leak Democrats fanatically insist did not occur, why their sudden alarm? The question answers itself — these individuals realize deep down if that if NSA/GCHQ had tapped trans-Atlantic (and Internet nodes leading into Russia) cable data to back up their ‘Russian hacking’ claims it could’ve been easily ordered declassified by President Obama on his way out of office. That point was made by Bill Binney from the very beginning of the ‘Russian hacking’ story in 2016. In January 2017 VIPS wrote a letter to the lame duck occupant of the White House urging Obama to do just that, and declassify the evidence.

New Audio From The Night Of The Las Vegas Massacre Reveals That There Was “Another Active Shooter” In The Bar At The Top Of The Mandalay Bay Hotel During The Attack
by Alex Thomas, SHTFplan:
Newly released audio from the Clark County Fire Department has provided even more proof that there were multiple shooters during The Las Vegas Massacre, further debunking the official narrative of a lone gunman on the 32nd floor and once again calling into question almost every aspect of what actually happened during the worst mass shooting in American history.
The audio, released on the SoundCloud account of a local news reporter, is an almost three hour recording of transmissions between dispatch and units on the ground amid the confusion of the mass shooting that at one point details a report that a wife of a firefighter was actually pinned down in the Foundation Room bar on top of the Mandalay Hotel.
Intellihub’s Shepard Ambellas, who has extensively reported on the entire Vegas cover-up since the beginning, recently found that at around the 1:27:54 mark of the audio file you can clearly hear dispatch describing the situation to first responders who are headed in that direction.
“We have a firefighter’s wife at this event who is pinned down behind the bar at Mandalay Bay. We are trying to get further on the name,” dispatch frantically notes. “Batallion 6, be advised that we are getting reports on Mandalay Bay, at the bar, we currently have, another active shooter up there.”
After being asked to confirm the information, dispatch goes on to make clear that she is specifically speaking about the bar at the top of the hotel rather than anywhere near the 32nd floor room that Stephen Paddock supposedly operated from.
“The only information I have is it’s the bar on top of the Mandalay Bay,” dispatch continues before being asked if the shooter was pinned down or “just sheltering right now?”
Interestingly, the story doesn’t end there, as Ambellas wrote in his piece, author and entrepreneur Grant Cardone was actually holding an investors meeting in the very same bar shortly before the attack took place. The popular social media influencer apparently left the Foundation Room literally seven minutes before authorities claim Paddock opened fire from his 32nd floor room.
Cardone wrote about his experience in a post on Medium in which he claimed that the Mandalay Bay was telling visitors that there was at least one active shooter, “moving” throughout the hotel shooting people.
It was reported by the Mandalay there was a shooter moving through the hotel. I told Elena and Johnny, “stay close to me, we are not running out, stay calm, there is one person in charge — where I go, you follow, no matter what.”
About this time, there was starting to be a lot more activity through the casino and now the reports suggested there was active multiple terrorists moving through the hotel shooting guest. Then twitter started showing up with feeds suggesting multiple hotels being attacked, bomb threats, and more.
This new report documenting yet another instance of a possible second shooter comes on the heels of dozens of similar reports, with the most recent arriving in the form of air traffic control audio that directly stated that there were active shooters on the runway.
“During the air traffic control recordings, which were released by political strategist and co-founder of “The New Right” Mike Tokes, one of the dispatchers is heard telling an incoming plane that landing might not be a good idea because there were multiple active shooters on the airport property itself,” SHTFplan reported.
“Shutting down might not be a good idea, there’s active shooters on the runway,” he declared. “The 19s are closed, we are in the process of trying to round them up, they are on the airport property.”

Sealed Indictments are piling up. Do these link directly to the Clintons? The Deep State? How is Tony Podesta and the Saudi Arabians linked to all of this? #TheStoem
from Vigilant Citizen:
A disturbing scene in the 2014 movie Kingsman: The Secret Service features the hero killing an entire congregation inside a Baptist-style church in the Southern U.S. similar to the one in Texas.
On November 5th, Devin Kelley entered the First Baptist Church of a small town in Texas during the Sunday service, while wearing a skull mask and a ballistic vest. Armed with a Ruger AR-556 rifle and two handguns, Kelley fired into the crowd, killing 26 people, including several children.
Not unlike several mass shooters in the past, Devin Kelley had served in the military for some time, including a 12-month stint in confinement.
Kelley was once a member of the US Air Force, spokeswoman Ann Stefanek said. He served in logistics readiness at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico, starting in 2010.
Kelley was court-martialed in 2012 for two counts of Article 128 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, assault on his spouse and assault on their child, Stefanek said. Kelley received a bad conduct discharge, confinement for 12 months and a reduction in rank, she said. The Air Force did not provide a date of the discharge.
– CNN, What we know about Texas church shooting suspect Devin Patrick Kelley
Various accounts about Kelley are surfacing in mass media. Some news reports state that he was an “aggressive atheist” who often took to social media. His Linkedin profile states that he was an ex–Bible studies teacher, which is somewhat contradictory with shooting up a church. Both his family and his wife had strong ties to the church.
According to a profile on Indeed.com, Kelley’s wife was a “teacher for toddlers” at First Baptist of Sutherland Springs from June of 2009 to March of 2013. Her responsibilities included teaching the children about God, helping with “their life stones that are needed,” and being a “positive influence in their life,” the page stated.

New police reports state that Kelley had “issues” with his mother-in-law who usually attends the church, but she was not present that day.
So what truly motivated the shooter to kill? Could he have been programmed in the military to carry out this horrific mission? The public was certainly programmed to witness it.
Describing the horrific scene in Sutherland Springs, Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackitt stated:
“He just walked down the center aisle, turned around and my understanding was shooting on his way back out. It’s unbelievable to see children, men and women, laying there. DefenSeless people.”
