Demiurge As Dramaturge: Operation “Trump” 

This play could be written by a person for whom the historical tragedy of Hitlerism was also his deeply felt personal and the ideological tragedy, and who views the situation from the Leftist positions, colored by the healthy dose of irony. 

The Possible Behind The Scenes Screenwriter, Movie Director, and Producer: the films “Hamburg Cell” and (The Joker Vs) “The Dark Knight“. 

Operation “Trump” and “Operation 9/11” 

“Operation Trump” appears to be a sequel to “Operation 9/11” in certain respectsOne of the most interesting similarities, it seems to me, is that both operations were followed by the intensive, prolonged, and efficient disinformation campaigns. For the operation “Trump” it still is the continuing process. 

The undeniable German Intelligence – Deutsche Bank Connection of the Trump – Russia Affair

Is Ernst Uhrlau The Joker? 

The penchant for obtaining the computerized databases, by all means available, chimes well with the central characteristic of the recent waves of the “Performance Crimes“, and also the Trump-Russia AffairThese operations would be impossible without the sophisticated use of the comprehensive collections of the various databases

Ernst Urhlau and “Hamburg Cell” 

The interactions between Ernst Ehrlau and Tyler Drumheller of CIA in the aftermath of 9/11: “He’s making us dance and he’s enjoying every minute of it. It makes him feel important.” Ehrlau’s behavior, from these descriptions, looks strange, puzzling, hostile, uncooperative, and defensive. This behavior and the circumstances of the Hamburg group raise further questions about Uhrlau’s possible association with the 9/11. 

Was Mr. Ernst Ehrlau ever properly investigated? 

How close is the Uhrlau’s association with the 9/11 and what is the nature of this association? It is absolutely inconceivable, in my humble opinion, that Herr Uhrlau, in his capacity as the chief of Hamburg Police, did not know, and possibly did not interact in some ways with the Hamburg cell of the future 9/11 hijackers. More than that, I think he was instrumental in conveying to the Russians the future  hijackers’ original plan to go to Chechnya to fight as Islamists. They were diverted instead to the US and started their training there for  the 9/11. “For all who draw the sword will die by the sword”, according to the old logic. 

Whose idea was it? Who assisted with this diversion? What was Herr Uhrlau’s role in all of this? He was close to Schröder, and Schröder was and is close to Putin. Is this how their close cooperation and the relationship started and developed? Was the common strategy hatched in their interactions? What are the unique communication and operational tools that they used? 

Anthony Weiner vs Erik Prince As The  Antisemitic Narrative Of German Intelligence 

The subject of the  German Intelligence and Jewish Sexual Scandals through history might open the new chapter with the Weiner-Abedin emails affair and investigations, and the very curious emergence of “Anthony Weiner vs Erik Prince As The  Antisemitic Narrative Of German Intelligence: American Jewish (“The WINNER!!!” – [in WW2] – A. Weiner) Prince vs. Aryan Prince“. 

The Questions, Unanswered and Unasked 

“Trump Russia affair: Key questions answered”, claimed the BBC. Me thinks humbly, that the key questions were not even asked, and the main question among them remains definitely unanswered: Who really was behind all of this? The issue of the possible “combined and complex ‘who’, a group of actors”, and for what really purposes, has to be addressed. This issue is still unclear, and the deep digging here might strike the gold of truth, eventually. 

The problem is that we do not even ask ourselves these types of questions or we do not  ask them persistently enough. 

The smart German boy Ernst might have fooled everyone: Putin, the Oligarchs, and the Great America! “Deutschland Uber Alles”!

_____________________________

These noble mediating efforts on the part of Mr. Uhrlau might be humane and sincere, in addition to being the valuable tools for his own strategies; however they do not make the contemporary professional German Intelligence, and looking broader, the contemporary German society, any less (and traditionally and deeply) antisemitic, and if anything, these efforts serve as the very convenient covers, in my as always very humble opinion. One thing we can learn here: Mr. Uhrlau manages his publicity and his Internet and Google presence very well, with the deft adeptness of the true and skillful master, which can be viewed as the confirmation of my hypothesis regarding him as the possible “Demiurge”. 

It is difficult to envisage how the certain states can be friends if their nature and the nature of their relations with the other states and social groups are deeply and irreversibly predatory. 

Mr. Uhrlau, why don’t you tell us your story, the whole story; the truth and nothing but the truth?! This might be a fascinating story, a lesson for humanity, a subject of studies for the jury of your peers.

Tropical Tracker: Hurricane Beryl heads for Puerto Rico

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico —

A compact Hurricane Beryl, the first hurricane of the Atlantic season, was on a path early Saturday that would carry it over the Lesser Antilles at the end of the weekend and into the eastern Caribbean, bringing a new threat to islands still rebuilding from last year’s storms.

A hurricane watch was issued for Dominica, which was battered by Hurricane Maria in September as a Category 5 storm. The island’s meteorological service said weather conditions would start deteriorating Saturday night and warned of six to 12 inches of rain. A tropical storm watch was issued for the French Caribbean territories of Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin and St. Barts as well as the islands of Barbados and St. Lucia. Deeper into the Caribbean, a state of emergency was declared in Puerto Rico, where Maria caused more than an estimate $100 billion in damage.

Beryl formed Friday and was a Category 1 storm late in the day. At 8 a.m. Saturday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said Beryl had maximum sustained winds of 75 mph (120 kph). It was centered 780 miles (1260 kilometers) east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles and was moving west at 14 mph (22 kph).

CURRENT FORECAST TRACK FROM THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER

The hurricane became less organized on Saturday morning and forecasters said it soon could be downgraded to a tropical storm.

People in the Caribbean, however, were taking no chances. Long lines were reported outside grocery stores on the islands of Dominica, Puerto Rico and elsewhere as people bought food and water as a preventive measure. Among those stocking up was Sandra Whitcher, an owner of Coffeeriver Cottages in Dominica.

It was centered 780 miles (1260 kilometers) east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles and was moving west at 14 mph (22 kph).

CURRENT FORECAST TRACK FROM THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER

The hurricane became less organized on Saturday morning and forecasters said it soon could be downgraded to a tropical storm.

People in the Caribbean, however, were taking no chances. Long lines were reported outside grocery stores on the islands of Dominica, Puerto Rico and elsewhere as people bought food and water as a preventive measure. Among those stocking up was Sandra Whitcher, an owner of Coffeeriver Cottages in Dominica.

“We’re pretty prepared,” she said in a phone interview, adding that crews fortified the roofs on all seven cottages that survived Hurricane Maria. “Just because they go through one hurricane doesn’t mean they will go through a second one.”

Forecasters said Beryl would weaken further after entering the Caribbean late Sunday or early Monday. It was expected to pass about 70 miles (113 kilometers) south of Puerto Rico on Monday, but forecasters warned the storm-wracked U.S. territory could see up to 30 mph winds and heavy rains that could cause flooding and mudslides.

Meteorologist Odalys Martinez said in a phone interview that conditions would deteriorate late Sunday, with up to 3 inches (7.62 centimeters) of rain possible.

“There is a lot of uncertainty,” she said, adding that the storm’s track and strength could change in the next 24 hours.

Beryl is considered a small storm, with hurricane force winds extending out about 10 miles (20 kilometers) from its center. Forecasters said the storm probably would dissipate once it moved south of Haiti and the Dominican Republic on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello declared a state of emergency for the island and suspended work for Monday.

Rossello told reporters the island would probably experience power outages, given that its electricity grid has become more vulnerable since Hurricane Maria, which caused damage estimated at more than $100 billion. He said, however, that the recovery should be quicker since there are more power restoration crews and more equipment on the island now.

The governor urged people without sturdy roofs to move to one of the 424 shelters that the government planned to open across the island. He recently noted that some 60,000 people still have only tarps for roofs.

“There are a lot of Puerto Ricans who are in a vulnerable position,” Rossello said. “We are keeping an eye on this minute by minute. It is not the moment to panic, but it’s the moment to prepare.”

Puerto Rico Health Secretary Rafael Rodriguez urged all those with serious health conditions, including diabetics, to seek shelter at health facilities, which have generators.

Meanwhile, a tropical depression formed in the Atlantic well off the North Carolina coast, but forecasters said it wasn’t expected to pose any threat to land. The hurricane center said it would likely become a tropical storm Saturday and continue strengthening over the next few days while remaining far offshore.

At 11 p.m. EDT, the storm was centered about 195 miles (315 kilometers) south-southeast of Cape Hatteras with maximum sustained winds of 30 mph (48 kph). It was moving north-northwest at 6 mph (9 kph).

Alleged 9/11 mastermind linked to Hamburg cell

mikenova shared this story .

Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, who authorities now believe conceived the Sept. 11 attacks, apparently met with the terrorist plot’s chief suicide hijackers in 1999 in Hamburg, Germany, U.S. intelligence officials said Wednesday.

A senior intelligence official said “several different sources” had placed Mohammed at the Hamburg apartment that was used for meetings by three of the Arabs who are believed to have piloted the hijacked planes, as well as by several others implicated in planning and funding the operation.

The new intelligence may help to solve one of the major puzzles about Sept. 11—who outside the hijacking teams helped coordinate their actions and provided the link to senior Al Qaeda leaders. Mohammed is now believed to have filled at least part of that pivotal role.

The intelligence official said interrogation of Al Qaeda prisoners captured in Afghanistan and elsewhere, as well as “tracing of documents” and other raw intelligence collected in recent months, indicated that Mohammed was one of the few people with direct knowledge of the recruiting, training, funding and other operational details behind the attacks.

“The number of people central to this plan was very small,” said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “He was one of them.”

Although Mohammed was little known to the public until this week, officials said he has now been tied to the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, a foiled 1995 attempt to bomb 12 U.S. airliners over the Pacific, the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Tanzania and Kenya, and the Sept. 11 attacks on New York and the Washington area.

“He is the Forrest Gump of Al Qaeda,” a Bush administration official said. “He has more of a presence in some of their plots than we had previously known.”

The official said counter-terrorism experts had focused their attention over the last two years chiefly on the more high-profile Abu Zubeida, the Al Qaeda operations chief who was captured in March in Pakistan.

“Khalid Shaikh Mohammed had been quiet and had stayed off the airwaves,” the official added. “In hindsight, I don’t think people appreciated how important a player he had become in the Al Qaeda hierarchy. We are learning all that now.”

Mohammed was indicted by a U.S. court in 1996 for his alleged role in the airliner plot, but the federal arrest warrant was sealed so he wouldn’t know that authorities were scouring the globe for him.

Officials said it is still unclear precisely when Mohammed visited Hamburg, or which of the hijackers he met there. Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi and Ziad Jarrah—who are believed to have piloted three of the hijacked planes—lived in the northern German city for most of 1999.

Atta’s two roommates—Ramzi bin al-Shibh and Said Bahaji—also are suspected of participating in the plot. Unable to get a U.S. visa, Bin al-Shibh helped wire tens of thousands of dollars to the hijackers and to Zacarias Moussaoui, who was arrested before Sept. 11 and later was charged with conspiracy. Investigators have said Moussaoui was supposed to take bin al-Shibh’s place as the 20th hijacker.

Mohammed’s whereabouts are unknown, although officials hinted that at least one unsuccessful covert operation was launched to capture him in the late 1990s in the Middle East.

“We don’t have a real good bead on where’s he been,” another intelligence official said. “Obviously we’d love to talk to him.”

U.S. authorities are offering a reward of as much as $25 million for information leading to his capture. He is believed to be in Afghanistan or Pakistan.

Mohammed initially was known as an accomplice to Ramzi Yousef, the convicted mastermind of the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993 and of a 1995 plot to detonate bombs aboard 12 U.S. airliners over the Pacific Ocean.

According to the 1996 U.S. indictment, Yousef, using the name Dr. Adel Sabah, rented an apartment in the Tiffany Mansion condominium building in the San Juan section of Manila, the capital of the Philippines, in August 1994.

In the next two months, Yousef and Mohammed lived there and used the location to mix chemicals for explosives. They were also in possession of “modified timing devices,” the indictment said.

On Dec. 1, 1994, they and a number of other men blew up an explosive device at Manila’s Greenbelt Theater. That was a test, authorities say, for the explosive device placed on Philippine Airlines Flight 434 from Manila to Tokyo 10 days later. The small bomb exploded in midair, according to the indictment, killing passenger Haruki Ikegami.

The plot was uncovered in January 1995 when Mohammed’s “bomb factory” caught fire and authorities searching Yousef’s computer found detailed plans to blow up the airliners. Abdul Hakim Murad, a commercial pilot who wanted to hijack planes, and Wali Khan Amin Shah, a suspected Bin Laden associate, were captured and convicted in the plot along with Yousef.

Also in the computer: a communication signed by “Khalid Shaikh” and an apparently related letter that threatened to attack American targets “in response to the financial, political and military assistance given to the Jewish state in the occupied land of Palestine by the American Government.”

The letter, apparently written by Mohammed and his associates, also threatened to assassinate the president of the Philippines, attack aircraft or even launch a biochemical attack if one of their co-conspirators was not released from custody.

At the time, U.S. counter-terrorism officials tried but failed to find connections between the group and the still-embryonic terrorist network called Al Qaeda.

They concluded, however, that Mohammed was unlike the low-level “soldiers” who had helped Yousef in the airliner plot, which was called Bojinka, Bosnian for “big noise.”

Mohammed, they said, appeared to be an equal to Yousef, and someone whom Yousef trusted and respected, said one former law enforcement official involved in that investigation and prosecution.

“Yousef was a one-man band who planned it, built [the explosives], and it never would have happened without him,” said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “The others were a bunch of clowns who couldn’t have done it without Yousef.”

Except Mohammed, the official said. “He was someone of stature that Yousef respected,” said the former official. He also said Mohammed was believed to be Yousef’s relative by marriage.

But Mohammed now appears to have had early links to the larger terror network. His citizenship remains in question—the FBI says he is from Kuwait, while other officials suspect he may be from Baluchistan, a Pakistani province. Moreover, he has had access to significant sums of money, an indication that others may be backing him, officials said.

“I was always under the impression that he had connections; he could move around, had money and could go from one place to another,” said the former official.

Later, authorities linked Mohammed to the 1998 bombings of the two U.S. embassies in Africa. On Wednesday, they said his role in those attacks was still being investigated.

Since Sept. 11, authorities have struggled to piece together the complex plot, as well as the Al Qaeda hierarchy and network that spawned it. They now have concluded that Mohammed had quietly risen from a low-level figure to a position of relative authority.

He had access to Zubeida and Bin Laden, and authorities now believe that he thought up the Sept. 11 plot, possibly incorporating elements of the first World Trade Center attack and the botched airliner plot.

“He’s definitely a player,” said the Bush administration official Wednesday. “He’s definitely a major guy. People have known about him for a while.”

The latest information places him in Hamburg in 1999, after the Sept. 11 cell had been assembled.

The young Arabs who formed it had arrived in Germany over the previous decade, but all were in Hamburg and were in contact with one another by 1998.

Atta came first, arriving as a student in 1992 from his home in Egypt. In early 1999, he moved out of student housing and into a refurbished apartment on Marienstrasse that investigators think served as the base for the cell.

Al-Shehhi moved to Germany from the United Arab Emirates in 1996, settling two years later in a Hamburg apartment close to Atta’s. Jarrah arrived in the fall of 1997.

German investigators think that the Hamburg group was chosen by Al Qaeda for their technical skills and relative sophistication. The investigators say the three probably were singled out at Al Qaeda training camps in Afghanistan, probably in late 1998 or early 1999.

In any case, German federal police say airline records show that the three presumed pilots, plus Bin al-Shibh, flew to Pakistan in late 1999, presumably en route to Afghanistan. The three pilots were in Florida by July 2000, the first leg of the U.S. travel that ultimately would end in the airborne attacks.

The 15 Russian Billionaires Tied To The Games

mikenova shared this story .

With Sergey Titov for Forbes Russia

AT LEAST 15 Russian billionaires found a way to get in on the World Cup, which begins in their homeland on June 14. They either received state contracts — just 6 of them control the companies that collected nearly $7 billion to construct or repair facilities and transportation infrastructure — or invested money to do things like run ticketing systems and provide internet availability in stadiums.

An estimated 1.2 million soccer fans will travel to and from 11 host cities for the month-long event. And while watchdog NGOs are calling this period the worst human rights crisis in Russia since the Soviet era due to Kremlin-sanctioned crackdowns on human rights defenders, migrant workers and the LGBTQ community, Putin’s billionaire pals will fare just fine. As the dollar figures alone indicate, in Russia, the same old cronies are getting richer yet again.

Net worths are Forbes estimates as of June 8, 2018.

Viktor Vekselberg, aluminum baron tied to Trump lawyer Michael Cohen

Net worth: $13.6 billion

Vekselberg, who reportedly had ties to an investment firm that paid $500,000 to an LLC owned by Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, was sanctioned earlier this year for his alleged role in promoting Russia’s subversive agenda abroad. Back at home, his firm Airports of Regions spent $560 million to renovate airports in four World Cup host cities: Ekaterinburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Rostov-on-Don and Samara.

Net worth: $2.6 billion

No one landed a bigger payday. Rotenberg runs contractor Mostotrest, which owns a subsidiary that received over $4 billion in state contracts for a 425-mile highway connecting St. Petersburg and Moscow. But the highway won’t be finished in time for the sporting event. His company also received just another $1 billion to renovate three airports.

Net worths: $13.6 billion, $8.8 billion, $6.8 billion, $4.7 billion

Fridman, Khan and Kuzmichev were former college classmates who in 1989 founded Alfa Group, a diversified outfit that controls Alfa-Bank, the largest non-state owned bank in Russia. Aven joined later in 1994 as President of Alfa-Bank. With 745 offices and branches throughout Europe, Alfa-Bank is a sponsor of the event and will support FIFA on all ticketing sales in exchange for billboard advertising during matches.

In late 2017 Fridman, Khan and Aven sued Fusion GPS, the Washington D.C.-based opposition research firm behind the “Trump Dossier,” for defamation. The dossier claims the three billionaires worked with the Kremlin to influence the 2016 presidential elections. Fusion GPS filed a motion to dismiss the case in January, claiming the research it conducted was not defamatory. The case is still pending.

Net worth: $1.7 billion

His Crocus Group was awarded $580 million in state contracts to erect two stadiums in host cities Kaliningrad and Rostov-on-Don. Agalarov also has a Trump connection: he met with Trump in November 2013 when the Miss Universe competition was hosted in Agalarov’s Crocus City Hall in Moscow. The developer’s son told Forbes there were plans to build a Trump Tower in Russia prior to the 2016 presidential elections, but the Trump Organization denies this.
