CIA Teams With Defense Industry to Undermine Korea Negotiations

Thu, 07/05/2018 - 06:56

CIA Teams With Defense Industry to Undermine Korea Negotiations | 30 June 2018 | Factions within the CIA attempted for the second time in just over a month to undermine President Donald Trump's peace overtures towards North Korea by leaking information calculated to decrease confidence in Kim Jong Un's willingness to earnestly negotiate. On June 29, 2018, NBC News released a report quoting anonymous CIA officials who claimed that North Korea was increasing nuclear production at "secret sites" without providing any actual evidence for such claims. The report's credibility is further weakened by the fact that it also cited reports from a think tank which has strong connections to the defense industry and other private special interests. In disseminating their report, the CIA used NBC reporter Ken Dilanian as an outlet for leaks. As Disobedient Media previously reported, Dilanian was outed by the Intercept in 2014 as a CIA asset.

Tue, 07/03/2018 - 04:29

Wolfgang Halbig has stunning evidence that Sandy Hook Elementary School was closed months before 'massacre' | 18 June 2018 | We are told that on December 14, 2012, a lone gunman, Adam Lanza, went to Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) in Newtown, Connecticut, where in the space of 11 minutes, shot and killed 20 first-graders and 6 adults. We are also told that after the massacre, SHES relocated to an empty school in neighboring Monroe, CT -- Chalk Hill Middle School at 375 Fan Hill Rd. -- until a new swanky SHES was rebuilt with the $50 million from the state of Connecticut as a result of the shooting massacre. It turns out that SHES had moved to Chalk Hill months before the alleged massacre, which leads to this question: Since SHES had moved to Monroe, who, then, were the students and teachers whom Lanza shot to death at SHES on December 14, 2012? ...[Other 'oddities':] Years before the "massacre," the school was reported to be in disrepair and contaminated with environmental toxins, including the deadly asbestos. --Absence of legally-required designated handicapped parking spaces and signage in the many aerial photographic and video images of the school’s parking lot taken by news media on the day of the "massacre". --Testimony from the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine of the school's lack of Internet activity from the beginning of 2008 through all of 2012.

Mexico's leftist Lopez Obrador wins largest landslide in country's recent history | 02 July 2018 | Veteran Leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has been elected president of Mexico, winning the largest landslide in his country's recent history in a remarkable routing of what he terms "the mafia of power". Promising to combat corruption and drive down record crime rates, Mr Lopez Obrador captured 53 per cent of the vote, according to preliminary results - a historic victory for the party he created. Voters decided in their millions to turn their backs on the two parties which have ruled Mexico for almost 100 years, and finally give him a chance - sending his supporters into a frenzy. Donald Trump, the US president, was quick to congratulate the 64-year-old, who has charted a careful course of not antagonising his northern neighbour, but vowing to put Mexico first. "I look very much forward to working with him," said Mr Trump.

Manafort Assistant Gave FBI Access to Storage Locker - Testimony

Sat, 06/30/2018 - 02:11

Manafort Assistant Gave FBI Access to Storage Locker - Testimony | 29 June 2018 | A personal assistant to Paul Manafort granted the FBI access to a storage locker, allowing the government to secure evidence that President Donald Trump's former campaign manager is trying to suppress, according to testimony on Friday in a federal court hearing in Virginia. FBI special agent Jeff Pfeiffer made the disclosure at a hearing to consider whether evidence from the locker and a separate search of Manafort's home, both in the Washington, D.C., suburb of Alexandria, could be used in a Manafort trial set for July. Manafort's lawyers have sought to suppress the searches as part of a broader attempt to discredit the investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is probing whether Trump's campaign worked with Russia to sway the election. Manafort, who is now in jail, has been charged mainly for financial crimes not related to the campaign.
