Disappearing me, my mom, my dad. Nemo…? ΜΟΛΩΝ…? I’m a peaceful guy.

no more pictures

Disappear used to be an intransitive verb, but in these violent times it is now commonly used transitively to make a person disappear with no compound verb necessitated. So, just to say, someone is wanting to disappear me, my mom and my dad.

The diocese called me late in the day (10 May 2018) asking if it was O.K. to give my telephone number to someone looking for me.

  • “Sure!” I said.
  • “Great!” I said.

I’m so naive and trusting. You can guess what happened: I got a threatening phone call seconds later. Of course. Yay! Someone trying to make my day interesting if also surreal. But, instead, this was to make me feel indignant on behalf of my parents. So, the rejoicing came to an end.

The person demanded, with threats, that pictures involving me, my mom (RIP 1994), my dad (RIP 1993), in particular me with my mom or my dad or with both, effectively from the first decades of my life, be dealt with in such manner that no one else online or in person will ever be able to view such pictures even after death. “Even after death.” Let me think about that. “Even after death.” Death refers to those involved in the pictures themselves, namely, mom (Requiescat in pace), dad (Requiescat in pace) and me (Requiescat in… what? Already? 20**?). Not knowing the date of my own demise, I would have to have all these pictures destroyed now.

Anyway… What’s your opinion? Should I ditch all my pictures? Shred them? Burn them?Pour acid over them? Shoot them? I’m so nostalgic. I love my mom and I love my dad. That all seems a bit disrespectful.

There is a point of disappearing us. The time involved coincidentally corresponds to the time until the FBI[CIA]/Main State prepared an alternative identity for me without me asking, that is, just after both parents died. And then I would disappear with their blessing in favor of my “Shadow”, their “gray man.” The timing is just a coincidence, I’m sure. My “Shadow” becomes all the more the “gray man” if I and my parents are simply disappeared. It makes things really difficult for enemies of my “Shadow.” I somehow become my own “gray man.” He can continue to under the name with which he entrenched. Who’s a reflection of who?

calvin and hobbes puddle reflection

And so, sure, regarding the destruction of pictures, I’m human, so my reaction is ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ and Nemo me impune lacessit. (You can find those quotes on Google.) Wouldn’t you feel that way? But, you know, I’m a peaceful guy. So, whatever. But, let me know what you think.

This person on the phone also said that there is only two days to accomplish what must be done and that I must leave North Carolina and go to another place for those two days so as to do something which legally cannot be done. But, no. I’m still here in Western North Carolina. April 12 (today as I write this, a few hours to go until this afternoon when the full two days is over). It seems to be the end of the world for this person if they do not accomplish what must be accomplished in these last two days, that is, with me out of my little rectory.

Oh, and, by the way, this threatening phone call person (whom we’ll call “Shadow2”) spoke, even verbatim, of themes shared in common by my “Shadow”, who is the reason for the alternative identity offer mentioned above. As an example, with mention of this blog being made by “Shadow2”, I checked out my stats. These are the tracks of “Shadow2” to this blog:

picture eraser

“Shadow2” moved in just down the road from me (partially blacked out above), a temporary situation as “Shadow2” said. I recall that my “Shadow” has been after me to get a place for him in these past months in just such a place. But then he says that if he has to, he can use a temporary place which coincidentally is near where “Shadow2” happens to be right now, both places being typical of “safe house” locations, I mean, in the extreme extreme extreme.

Anyway, I like the three pages visited:

  1. The Home Page of this blog.
  2. The About Page of this blog.
  3. A blog-restricted search for the word “jew.” That’s the life-long mania of my “Shadow,” who is a David Duke sycophant and anti-Israeli, pro-Russia, pro-Syrian, pro-Iranian fanatic.

Anyway, “Shadow2”, having done some rather extensive research, said that, obviously, I was to give up taking a certain medicine I take daily to kick start the liver into making an enzyme which I lack and without which I would almost certainly be dead within 72 hours. Instead, I was to go see a certain doctor who would provide a certain unknown medicine from a certain otherwise unknown experimental program, you know, because that’s trustworthy especially sourced to “Shadow2”. But I digress.

==============================

A more severe digression: To this person, for the dozenth time:

jaguar wikimedia

Thank you. The one will be appreciated by those in need. But the other offer of helpful information? I can’t do that, enter into that, no matter how helpful no matter on how many levels, right? Think… But you might send me something. /// End digression.

==============================

In all of this, on the phone call, “Shadow2” was trying to convince me that overwhelming authority was being wielded over me, stating as an example that this very “Shadow2” intervened with Jesse Helms way back in the day (even before Main State contacted me the following year) so to have me removed from Israel in early 1991. You’ll remember that that was when Operation Desert Storm was about to heat up and I was everywhere to be found in the “West Bank”. However, I never heard a thing from Jesse, as there was never a problem. There was never a lack of flights leaving Tel-Aviv. אל על has no fear of anyone, ever. I love that. Anyway, even later on, despite the scud missiles that fell around us as we wore gas-masks in a sealed room of the Pontifical Biblical Institute when Saddam later started up in mid-January, I never asked any help to leave, didn’t want to leave, and wouldn’t have left, and, indeed, could not have been “removed” since, as far as I know, the PIB is extra-territorial even to Israel as it belongs to the Holy See (regardless of Jesuit proprietorship). No one asked me about any of this. As it is, I switched my departure date for a much later date., well after Operation Desert Storm was under way, you know, to make sure the staff would be O.K. Things were different back when; things were more difficult to know quickly. But the point of “Shadow2” is that there is no second thought given to taking over my life, because it already is. This had nothing to do with me being in some sort of danger in the perception of someone concerned for an American citizen (Hey! Just ask me!), but rather, it seems, again, that this is about something else in which my “Shadow” has an all-consuming interest. Thus:

terrorist suicide bomber

The real problem is that I interfere with anti-Israeli machinations just a bit too much.  Just previous to Operation Desert Storm I had spoken with with Saeed Hotari, later a member of the idiot military wing of Hamas, Izzedine al Qassam, who, it seems, was sending him to his death now (but for me), and would do so again successfully ten years later. Saeed was originally from Qalqiya, just a half a day’s walk from Nablus, where I was visiting to deliver some gas masks to the Missionaries of Charity because of the threat of chemical weapons being used in the immediate future. It seems Saeed’s family had moved to Zarqa on the far side of Amman. He was there at the beginning of the time when Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was there, but then he made his way back into the West Bank. I’m only guessing here, but the bomb Saeed would go on to use as a suicide bomber was so complex and so powerful that he would have had to have been helped by the likes of someone like al-Zarqawi. There’s simply no other way.

Saeed was the terrorist who would take so very many lives ten years later, in 2001, in Israel, just West of Nablus. 21 dead, scores and scores injured. This was the Dolphinarium attack against mostly newly arrived Russian Jewish girls. It’s absolutely a spitting image of him. Ten years had passed since our conversation. It seemed to me that he had already been pegged for being a suicide bomber at that time. I’m certain of that. But, after our conversation, he held off for ten years. Perhaps the effect of our conversation would have lasted a lifetime had al-Zarqawi and, indeed, his own father, not been around to push him in that direction of suicide bombing. Perhaps this interference on my part wasn’t appreciated by my “Shadow” and his allies, not appreciated at all.

Something’s up these past few months. There’s lots of stuff like this strange phone call happening, e.g., the perpetual accompaniment program for when I travel that the State Department and FBI[CIA] told me about has been beefed up very significantly.

So, what are the pros and cons of following the directives of this phone call person about the pictures? No pictures with parents back in the day? That has consequences. It makes certain things easier for my “Shadow.” I’m guessing the deadline, so to speak, for whatever it is, is something like 4:00 PM EST. Whatever.

Anyway, you can take my worldly identity away. But no one can take away the identity I have in Christ Jesus, Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception, who stood in our place, the Innocent for the guilty, to have the right in His own justice to have mercy on us, and who, for that reason, will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire.

Bibi: Iran lied. But I’m angry with…

Israeli PM presents devastating array of evidence Iran is cheating on nuke deal

I am so angry. The Mossad is good. But what about us?! We didn’t know this?! Really?! I am so angry. This is a result of a failure of leadership in counterterrorism, counterintelligence. I happen to know something about that in regard to one of our Ambassadors in regard to Main State. But we’re rotten from the inside. We don’t care about treason. We only care about politics. Yep.

You may recall this recent post: Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactor – Conversing of LMFBR in my tiny parish. The LMFBR guy who came to visit me ought best to come round again. Why? Because, in his words, “we got conversations to have.” But at this point, I’m the one who will pick his brains right out of his head until he speaks freely. Then we’ll go along nicely to CT up the way so that I can throw his sorry backend in front of them, even Main State now that Pompeo is there. That LMFBR guy approached me moments after Israel was able to secure 1000 pounds of documentation about this subject and Iran. I mean, we would have watched all this leaving Iran and heading to Israel and we could be 100% certain what it was and we would immediately scrape the bottom of the barrel to find out what the consequences might be. That kind of stupidity puts millions of peoples lives at risk.

Update: O.K., anger has given way to celebration. This is one of if not the biggest intelligence / military coups in what we know of military history. Incredible. I’m so proud of Israel. To life, my friends, to life! I mean, just think of breaking into those safes in that warehouse, and then somehow moving 1000 pounds of cargo off that compound and into Israel. Just incredible. But it’s done. That’s just so cool.

Baiting Baiters: Stockholm Syndrome

twa flight 800

The logistics of operational structures in Northeast Virginia, adjacent Maryland and associated field interests were clarified for me the other day in regard to my “Shadow” to the effect that there was an inescapable indication as to those for whom my “Shadow” has been working all these decades, really since the very beginning. And now he knows I know. So, he appreciates my texting him the following:

I just figured you out. I’m a bit slow. I had some help. You should’ve just told me. Pretty funny if you ask me. I’m cool with that. Just be good. Avoid evil. Have your soul straight with God.

That was sincere. I mean, I am a priest, after all. I want everyone to have their souls right with God, even the one who stole my identity so as to do things with it internationally and totally unknown to me for the longest time, that is, at the behest of those for whom he works. But, I suppose, my admonition to him also involved a little bit of baiting.

It worked. His response was to give me a heads up about what the relationship is between me and those for whom he works, regardless of any loyalty of mine to all that is patriotic, all that is good and holy, and this, by playing off a recent post on this blog involving the extremity of such loyalty and that particular center on this blog: Metallica: Nothing Else Matters (Analysis of the lyrics). Nice, that response of his, giving me a heads up and all. Not that I didn’t know that. After all, this has been going on for decades and the relevant Division of Main State and later the FBI confirmed this for me on their own initiative. As I’ve always said, my life is an open book, more than any polygraph or other means could ever drag out of me or ascertain (I mean, should I ever have been signed up for said company myself).

header emphasis

In more recent years, especially in recent months, especially in recent weeks, especially in recent days and hours, despite that initial niceness, my “Shadow” has been playing up baiting me into having a syndrome originally called Norrmalmstorgssyndromet but now recalls the city in which an incident occasioned analysis: the Stockholm Syndrome.

I’m guessing he’s sincere on one level, but is so caught up in his rationalizations that he just doesn’t see his own baiting in reverse. Or not that. Maybe I’ve been baiting him to bait me. Maybe we’re just pretending to out-manipulate each other. But, after all, in his mind, if he’s done wrong and I don’t like that, maybe he feels the oppression of my not liking being taken advantage of with my name being used. He’s a “victim”[!], well, until I cave and work with him for the company. But maybe, from my perspective, I can capitalize on all that. He will read this, of course.

The trouble with him making that baiting me into a Stockholm Syndrome a success is that I’m already so bad and evil that I’m already in a pre-skeptical state, a kind of self-aware situational awareness of all that which is bad and evil. Nothing has changed with all of this. Not even with the heating up of incidents, not even with the recent exaggeration of the “accompaniment” when I travel as promised by Main State and the FBI. I still have a request and I still have something to say to the FBI and CT at Liberty Crossing Campus that dwarfs this idiocy between my “Shadow” and me.

“The Guy” lets me in on my life

joint

“The Guy” and his lovely wife joined the usual crowd for the evening meal on my “Day-Off”. Three and a half hours of great conversation and a really good home cooked meal.

“The Guy” is the the guy who, eventually, had only one boss, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs. He, um, kind of knows how stuff works. There was a lot of ground covered. Stunning. A lot to take in. We may have some common friends. In that mix, somewhere, is my “Shadow.” I now know who he works for. It’s funny how life works out. I’ve contacted my “Shadow” about this. He’s cool with it.

Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactor – Conversing of LMFBR in my tiny parish

We had a Knights of Columbus Fish Fry April 20, 2018 at Holy Redeemer parish in Andrews, N.C., so as to raise money for the local Special Olympics. I would have to be there, of course, just then, in the parking lot to go up to the parish hall. As I got out of my car, a jogger, say, in his sixties, jogged up to me, stopped, and we had this conversation:

  • Jogger: It’s good to see you.
  • Me: Good to see you too. [But I’m wondering who he is. Bad memory, I guess.]
  • Jogger: I wanted to come by and bother you but… ’cause we got conversations to have but…
  • Me: O.K. [I say “O.K.”, but the plural “conversations” is a most extraordinary usage, and bothers me. I’ve never heard it before in my life. It’s always singular. Except when there are disparate topics that have been piling up, like tasks to accomplish. My bad and evil suspicions will be justified. These conversations will not be about the faith. As we’ll see below, he thinks my present life, perhaps ‘cover’, as a priest who also writes this blog, is a total waste of time, in which he has zero interest.]
  • Jogger: Haven’t gotten around to it.
  • Me: We’ll get there.
  • Jogger: Yeah.
  • Me: O.K. [So, I’m waiting for a hint. And here it is:]
  • Jogger: Did you do any research on liquid metal fast breeder reactors?
  • Me: No!!!!!!! That’s what I need to do!!!!!!! [Sorry, but I’m really bad and evil. I was using the loud voice of a sarcastic Matt Damon with an unrelenting Robin Williams from the few clips I’ve seen of Good Will Hunting on YouTube. My unnamed interlocutor continues with an incisive sarcasm all his own, as if my life as a janitor – err… I mean… priest… – isn’t good enough, especially the bit about the total waste of time, he thinks, of my writing this blog. I should stop hiding away in this tiniest of all parishes. But, mind you, I absolutely love this parish in these mountains. Love it. He says:]
  • Jogger: Well, I know, I mean, I know you got nothin’ else to do but write. Hahahahaha.
  • Me: That would be a good one down the way. Yes, that’s for sure.
  • Jogger: Now, you’re, George, right? Byers?
  • Me: Yes. [Because he can’t believe my denial.]
  • Jogger: Good! [[Then, as he started to jog away, he said:]] Bye! We’ll be up in a little bit.

He could see that I was a priest with all the black and the Roman collar, and that I was physically at that moment at that parish, obviously, but he still wasn’t sure of my identity (I could be a guest priest after all), so he asked if his prior knowledge of my name was correct, you know, after my denial about working on LMFBRs.

So, some interrogations – err… – conversations are in store for me. “Researching”, mind you, on LMFBRs doesn’t refer to summaries of the history or findings of others throughout the decades, (what a waste of time that would be) but rather on the LMFBRs themselves, which is the only way to do anything, the only reason why anyone’s knowledge would have any value whatsoever. Maybe he’s offering me a job. Could be about doing active research, could be about doing something about some LMFBRs in some other way. But maybe asking about someone’s wherewithal with LMFBRs in whatever way just to do it is a normal thing at the ol’ fish-fry, right? I mean that’s a normal conversation to have, right? Maybe it’s a task to accomplish as a favor, and then, maybe, Main State will listen to a request of mine. We’ll see.

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah!

But I still expect this guy to come back with his friends and have a wee chat with me. Blog posts like this are merely one of those nothing is as it seems things, right?

Setraco Group “hit list”, Main State, my “Shadow”, terrorism, and me.

beirut setraco group

never look in my spam box, ever. But I did now so as to retrieve a registration link from a D.O.C. communications group so as to set up an account enabling me to connect all the more easily with Father Gordon MacRae, right from his cell. Very cool, that.

But there were just a few other spams in the box, and one caught my eye, as it involved the name of my “Shadow”. I did NOT open the message, but a preview pop-up revealed a hit list targeting Setraco Group out of Beirut, a construction company in 30 countries with 20,000 employees. There were hints as to the sender. There was a picture of the target. Setraco’s world offices are in an ultra-ritzy suburb, of course. They’ve suffered quite a number of very specific, directed, assassinations from ISIS elsewhere.

As I write this, my “Shadow” is going ballistic, as I simply mentioned the word Setraco to him. Nothing else. He instantly – instantly – launched into a diatribe about Syria (his favorite stomping grounds) and Putin and WMD and the Mossad and terrorism and on and on. How did he know that would actually be precisely on point, not having heard of Setraco and not having even a second to look them up before responding? Meanwhile, as I write this and text him, I get a call from Mexico (his other favorite stomping grounds) giving me a name. This is boring. I need something more exciting. I need to pay some car insurance.

The parting shot of my “Shadow” is that I am a terrorist. He’s really fuming. I said nothing in all this. I just mentioned the name Setraco and all hell broke loose. But, as I always say, nothing is as it seems.

Disillusioned guy to me: Do it!

john edger hoover fbi

Disillusioned with corruption. Gonna do something about it.

An old school, super excellent, honorable guy, a John Edger Hoover redivivus (in the good aspects anyway), disillusioned as he is with the shenanigans that have been going on from mid-level on up for quite some time at the bureau, gave me my marching orders. What a patriot he is. He waxed poetic, reminiscing about the old days. We have a common understanding about doing what is right for the common good, no matter the cost. Do it! So, he mentioned how to go about this, given the extraordinary difficulties and those who don’t want this to happen at any cost. His “how to” surprised me greatly. I had been warned to go ahead and do anything but that, anything else, including going to my friend in the Institute for Intelligence and Special Operations. But, no, I couldn’t do that. I would end up in the middle of some mountain in Colorado if I did that. But this guy insisted that his way, so surprising to me, was the only way.

  • I asked, “You mean I should talk to that guy?” I protested: “I don’t know him personally, as a friend.”
  • “Pffft!” he said. “No, NOT him. No. Go and see […].” He repeated this twice, really strongly: “NOT him. You are to go and see […].”

My reaction to that, only thought but not said – and I confess this – was “Oh s#!+”. Sorry, but I am a sinner. At any rate, O.K. I’ll see what I can do. This may take some time to arrange.

Countering cafeteria: countersabotage counterintelligence counterterrorism

manure spreader

NSA’s program is a massive FISA warrant. Robert Mueller was in on it. James Comey was in on it. Peter Stzrok was in on it. Snowden reported a part of it.

Comey thinks everyone who thinks Nunes’ FISA Memo is important is a weasel and a liar, not because spying on the POTUS or anyone else is at all wrong, it seems for him, but that doing so as a favor to political opposition is just fine and dandy in a democracy with a Constitution such as we have it. ?!?!?

So, anything goes, and anyone who doesn’t get with the program is held to be countering countersabotage, counterintelligence, counterterrorism, and is therefore as un-American as any saboteur, spy or terrorist. When I was a little kid, it was a saying among all the kids that you shouldn’t point your finger at anyone since the rest of your fingers were pointing back at yourself if you do so.

But, hey! Now we’re moving on to Nunes’ “phase 2” with Main State. Ha ha.

FBI gumshoes FISA warrant memo fearing *phase two* at Main State DoS

gum on shoe

*Russia! Russia! Russia!* That’s what Nunes’ investigation is parroting from the FBI/DOJ as the abuse of the judiciary investigation moves on to phase two over at Main State of DoS. But nothing is at it seems, right? I should remember that myself. Maybe that’s not parroting, but rather surprisingly accurate, but from a different yet complementary angle.

Russia did come to mind when Main State leaked and unmasked information to me (and how many others with what is surely circular subversive activity?) and then, incredibly, reconfirmed that leaking and that unmasking two days later (last 28 and 30 June 2017, Wednesday and Friday respectively). This involves counterterrorism and counterintelligence.

But Peter Strzok had nothing to do with all that. Oh, wait a minute! That’s what he was in charge of before he was “demoted” to personnel, you know, so that he could continue to get like-minded individuals sabotaging America into place. And that’s what that leaking and unmasking was all about it seems to me, at least from Secretary Tillerson’s reactions.

James Comey spoke about weasels and liars to describe those who think that Devin Nunes’ FISA memo is in anyway important. Actually, relatively speaking, he’s right, that is, if they know better. There’s much worse than a FISC judge allowing the FBI to spy on a presidential candidate on behalf of another presidential candidate. That’s bad, but!

What would be much, much worse, would for the FBI to set up an insurance program, so to speak, if one’s FISC mandated spying didn’t pan out, an insurance program that would set up a situation which, when it was made discoverable at an expedient time (and that time might be coming up) so as to have the sitting POTUS that was passionately not desired to be quickly impeached and imprisoned.

Oh! Wait a minute! That FISA memo, in it’s last sentence, mentioned just such an “insurance policy.” I don’t know Strzok or his mistress or the insurance policy to which he refers. What I do know is what was related to me by Main State can do exactly what Strzok wants his “insurance policy” to do. And it was in his competence.

Just something for the record. The FBI tells me repetitively in extended conversations over the past number of months about other topics I’ve been delving into that, instead of those topics, what they are really interested in is counterterrorism. When this is said, everything else slows down and is narrowed down so that focus is sharpened (in the adrenaline pumped agent’s world) and the word counterterrorism is spoken in an exaggerated manner, you know, to get a reaction: “The FBI is especially interested in C.O.U.N.T.E.R.T.E.R.R.O.R.I.S.M. Good interrogation technique. Used again and again and again. Hint. Hint. Hint. Doesn’t work with me though. I’ll tell my experience with Main State to whomsoever from the FBI, but only at CT-McLean, with whatever lackey from Main State present. Otherwise. I just can’t trust the FBI, not now. But maybe I’m just a weasel and a liar. But why would I be?

FBI’s Strzok-Page “insurance policy” – Should I sit on this?

main-state-department-of-state

To this day, no one knows what the “insurance policy” is, well, almost no one. People assume that it has something to do with Russia. Why? The point is that if all that Russia rubbish doesn’t work (which means it’s all fake, by the way), then, post-election, you do something else to have the President of the United States (Trump) removed from office. As Trump pointed out the other week, this is treasonous.

Whenever we talk, the blackest of all black operators (I get reprimanded by others for saying that that he’s the best shot in the world, but it’s verifiably the truth) tells me again and again about insurance policies as being the normal way of operating for everything important that goes down in the running of this country here or abroad. You always but always have something to hold over someone’s head, and that works vice versa.

As long time readers know, I’ve stuck my head out and reported to the FBI some things the State Department related to me regarding oversight of Counterterrorism in McLean, something which compromises not only our efforts with Counterterrorism (as if that wasn’t bad enough in this day and age), but which fit exactly what Strzok would like to have as an insurance policy by which to oust the President of the United States immediately upon the word being given.

I’ve mentioned this to CT, and they’ve related this to the FBI (meaning that CT at McLean is clean of this) and given me some other instructions regarding various Inspectors General. The FBI has been doing some background work, but they’re hesitating, unsure to use this to redeem themselves in the eyes of the citizens of these United States, or to go ahead and let it be an insurance policy for them. How about just going with it for the sake of the good of the country? Hey! That’s a novel idea.

Should I continue to sit on this? Should I name names? Would I then be guilty of leaks and unmasking?

Justice is always the way to go. No politics. Just do the right thing, always, every time, no compromise, ever. Once you cave in, you’re done, a “made man”, but in the sense of “you’ve been had,” meaning you’re then no longer a “company man” in the best sense, but someone who can only be a danger to themselves, to others, to the country, secure in your job, you think, until you’re not. Sad, that. But we’ll continue.

If the shadow of Shadow is what it is, what is the shadow of “Shadow”?

img_20171208_1306162088395739.jpg

Shadow-dog has no shadow for the past few days as the clouds have made everything everywhere into one big shadow. He’s kind of a shadow of himself, a black hole into which all photons in the universe disappear. However, a very kind reader sent this in from a Texan Parson who also has an all-black German Shepherd. There is a wolfish revelation in the shadow of the otherwise innocuous looking GSD:

german shepherd wolf shadow

Meanwhile, my own “Shadow” has gone dark, or perhaps everything around him is so cast into shadow that he himself casts no shadow. I sent him a text reading: “Jerusalem capital…” He has no comment. Don’t read anything into this. He’s too “Gray” to figure out. Things are never as they seem. Ever. A shadow just looks the way it does because of angles. And then there are those who make puppets of shadows and even of a “Shadow;” and I don’t like that at all.

State Dept compromised: solutions?

Should the national security of the country be compromised to its very core in order to save the jobs of a few people, embarrassing just a few others? Isn’t that like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic? Those jobs won’t be there, and no one will care about any embarrassment. Compromising national security has consequences. There are tough words in the press conference above. But nothing is as it seems, ever.

Lord of War: How passé! But what if?

Yep. That would be right. No one will go there to investigate because it’s already way, way, way beyond anyone’s pay grade to do so. And it’s dangerous, that, messing around with national security that mixes with politics. So, no one goes there.

But then – hey! – that’s a carte blanche invitation by those running black programs to expand on their power, getting their own bosses in place and holding government to the ongoing ransom of their own job security and lack of scandal. RICOesque, to be sure, on the part of anything interdepartmental, especially that which is purposely ignored by any OIG, but there it is. People do get hurt and are bound to get hurt. But Tillerson’s response at Main State at the moment is brilliant, though only partial. If he only knew.

My real-fake passport?! My “Shadow.” Tysons IG. Main State’s IG.

wp-image-1921321593

I have an active passport which I’ll be using to go back to Rome, God willing, at Pope Francis’ request, one of those Missionary of Mercy things. I used it recently to get my ticket, and that was successful. Amazing. After all, it’s a fake passport. I mean real. I mean, you know, suspect, I mean, of interest, but not really, it being that it’s all “legit”, the background of it remaining a bit mysterious, that is, depending on who’s looking at it from whatever perspective and peculiar motivation.

I mean, it was really cool going through the TSA at ATL Atlanta [Hartsfield-Jackson] International Airport the last time I headed over to Rome for the first Missionary of Mercy get-together the other year. The agents at the Full-Body-Scanner simply stepped back, like, thirty feet, in that makeshift and out-of-the-way station. After the fellow in front of me, a pilot I think, went through, there was no one else in line but me, as I was pretty early for the flight. Surprised at their stepping so far back, I said: “But I have to warn you beforehand that I have quite a few pounds worth of surgical metal in my left leg.” “Yeah, whatever; it doesn’t matter, you can go ahead; just go,” they protested, continuing to step back a bit more, as if my very presence attracted trouble that they didn’t want to have, even though I myself was not trouble in any way. I mean, way back in the day, it’s true, I was supposed to be at a certain airport security station at the exact time that 19 people were slaughtered right at that exact spot, but last second logistics just didn’t permit it. But that was a long time ago and no one would really know that or other related incidents, well, unless they were told beforehand, I guess, about that and a zillion other similar “incidents” from the late 1970’s until today. At any rate, I’ve always gotten special treatment, not that I’m special. But…

The thing is, it seems that the IG at Tysons (where we have our massive counterterrorism center) is a bit more clued into who I am and more importantly, who I absolutely am not, as opposed to my “Shadow”, that is, than is the IG at Main State across the Potomac. Or better, the IG at Tysons’ Liberty Crossing Campus is a bit less skittish of consequences either way than is the IG over at Main State. Or is all that in reverse, or am I and my “Shadow” the same person, or is it all a smokescreen with nothing ever being as it seems? Or…

I’m just having some fun, the purpose of which is to show my impatience with Main State, which permitted all this in the first place. But in the last number of months things of have gotten a lot more complicated. I’m a bit worried my “Shadow” is being framed and that I’m being used to that end. That’s when people start to get hurt. The IG at Tysons agrees. I don’t like people getting hurt, and I especially don’t like it when I’m involved to that end. I hope the IG at Main State solves the problem, say, by Monday: (xxx) xxx-xxxx!

Analysis: In denial of terrorist reality

terrorist attack NYC Oct 31 2017

  • Surely he’s a career criminal, because only career criminals are terrorists.
  • Surely he just snapped, because only people who have snapped are terrorists.
  • Surely he’s deranged, because only deranged people are terrorists.
  • Surely he’s off his meds, because only people off their meds are terrorists.
  • Surely he’s just sick, because only sick people are terrorists.
  • Surely he’s just crazy, because only crazy people are terrorists.
  • Surely he’s just stupid, because only stupid people are terrorists.
  • Surely he’s poor, because only poor people are terrorists.
  • Surely he’s jobless, because only jobless people are terrorists.
  • Surely he’s homeless, because only homeless people are terrorists.
  • Surely he’s without a family, because only people without a family are terrorists.
  • Surely he’s an American military veteran because vets are probable terrorists.
  • Surely he’s pro-life, because only those pro-life are terrorists.
  • Surely he’s pro-liberty, because only non-totalitarianists are terrorists.
  • Surely he’s pro-pursuit of happiness, because only happy people are terrorists.
  • Surely he supports the American Constitution, because only people who support the American Constitution are terrorists.
  • Surely nothing happened.
  • Surely everyone is nice.
  • “Terrorism” is FoxNews right-wing propaganda. It just doesn’t happen.
  • Surely the Qur’an’s command of hacking down Christians and Jews wherever you meet them is just propaganda because diversity is always nice.
  • Surely the Judeo-Christian command to love thy neighbor as thyself is terrorism because, well, just because.

We say cowardly things, manifesting that we are in denial, not because we’re afraid of terrorism but because we’re afraid of ourselves. The promised Messiah, our Savior, does not save us from nothing. It is He who provides us with love and truth and goodness and kindness, with His friendship. Why would He do that? Because we don’t have this on our own. We say cowardly thing because we have rejected faith in God, and therefore are immersed in fear, therefore in denial. But let’s continue with our sarcasm, but what people really say:

  • Surely this is the fault of rental trucks.
  • Surely this is the fault of guns.
  • Surely this is the fault of not surrendering to Islamicists.

I say, those who say cowardly things facilitate terrorism.
