Maassen and Manafort – Google Search 

Is this possible that Maassen did not know about Manafort’s shenanigans? Absolutely impossible. And now dive into this connection and its interconnected webs DEEPER. Who was really behind it? What are the connections with the other German Intelligence Services

5:45 AM 9/24/2018 – Update

Is Maassen just a convenient scapegoat or the designated fall guy? Who is behind him? 

What are his connections with Ernst Uhrlau and other personae? What are his possible connections with the hypothetical “New Abwehr“?

Investigate his and these complex, interconnected, social, professional, and political networks. Who should do this investigation? Those who are capable to and those who have to, irrespective of the country and the type of the investigative service. At the later stage the results of these investigations should be compiled, combined, and published.

German spy chief passed info to AfD: report | Germany| News and in-depth reporting from Berlin and beyond | DW
 

mikenova shared this story .

The relationship between Germany’s domestic spy chief, Hans-Georg Maassen, and the Alternative for Germany (AfD) came under renewed scrutiny on Thursday, when it was revealed that the head of the domestic intelligence service, the Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), had passed on information from his yearly report to the far-right populist party ahead of its publication.

AfD Bundestag member Stephan Brandner confirmed to public broadcaster ARD that Maassen had given him “numbers from the report” at a personal meeting on June 13, five weeks before it was released.

“We talked about different figures that are in there,” Brandner told ARD, including the number of Islamist extremists in the country. The BfV is tasked with tracking extremist groups inside Germany and determining whether they represent a danger, and brings out a report on its findings every summer.

Maassen has already faced intense pressure after an interview in which he questioned whether videos showing far-right violence in Chemnitz were authentic, directly contradicting Chancellor Angela Merkel’s statements.

    Shadowy figure

    Hans-Georg Maassen, the head of Germany’s Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) — the domestic intelligence service — is no stranger to controversy. Calls for him to step down have been a constant throughout his long career in the intelligence community.

    Trouble in the Interior Ministry

    Maassen gained notoriety in 2002 while working for the German Interior Ministry and arguing that Murat Kurnaz, a German resident held in the US prison at Guantanamo for five years before being released, could not return to Germany because his residency had lapsed. Herta Däubler-Gmelin, who was justice minister at the time, called Maassen’s argument, “false, appalling and inhumane.”

    Vows to restore trust

    In 2012, Maassen was tapped to lead Germany’s top spy agency. He promised to restore faith in the BfV, which was embroiled in controversy over its entanglement in the right-wing extremist scene and his predecessor’s decision to destroy files related to the neo-Nazi NSU murders.

    First calls for firing

    Maassen has been accused of having “a troubled relationship with basic democratic principles” for his pursuit of bloggers on grounds of treason and trying to suppress negative stories on the BfV. In January 2017, he told parliament reports the BfV had undercover agents in the Islamist scene connected to the Berlin Christmas market attack were false. Records showing it did became public in 2018.

    HANS-GEORG MAASSEN: A CONTROVERSIAL CAREER

    Sympathies for the right?

    Before Maassen made headlines by questioning the veracity of videos of right-wing protestors chasing foreigners through the streets of Chemnitz, he was under fire for advising right-wing populist party Alternative for Germany (AfD) on how to avoid scrutiny from his agency. Now he is accused of sharing confidential documents with the AfD before presenting them to the public.

    Author: Jon Shelton

Even before Thursday’s revelation, opposition parties had called on Maassen to resign over suspicions that he harbors right-wing sympathies and has a too-close relationship with the AfD. But until now he has been backed by his boss, conservative Interior Minister Horst Seehofer.

In a speech to the Bundestag on Thursday morning, Seehofer reiterated his support for the BfV president, and it now appears that Maassen’s future could become a new crisis point for Merkel’s government: Merkel, Seehofer, and Social Democrat leader Andrea Nahles held a special crisis meeting to discuss the issue. The group said that any decision on Maassen’s future would not be made before next Tuesday.

Routine information

Maassen quickly rejected any wrongdoing. In a statement to DW, the BfV press office said he had received “express instructions” from the Interior Ministry, which is responsible for the BfV, to speak to parliamentarians from all political parties, and to inform them regularly about potential national security threats.

“The [ARD report] gives the impression that information or documents were passed on without a legal foundation,” the statement said. “This is of course not the case.” The BfV press office would not comment on the exact content of the conversation with Brandner, on the grounds that these conversations are confidential.

The DPA news agency reported on Thursday that Maassen had had all of 237 personal conversations with politicians since he took over the post in 2012, only five of which had been with members of the AfD. The party, however, was only formed in 2013 and only entered the Bundestag after the last election in 2017.

Nevertheless, the political fallout from the revelation could still threaten the spy chief, especially in light of his contentious interview with Bild newspaper, in which he cast doubt on evidence of migrants being threatened on the streets of Chemnitz. Such doubts were also shared by the AfD.

    10 wolves in Chemnitz

    “The Wolves Are Back” is a series of 66 bronze statues of wolves. Some do the Hitler salute, which is usually banned in Germany. Artist Rainer Opolka says the work is meant to remind people of the threat of racism. Far-right sympathizers often use the wolf to describe themselves. The AfD’s Björn Höcke used the word recently; Hitler’s propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, used it as early as 1928.

  • Wolf showing Hitler salute with creator

    Opolka has brought his statues all around the country to places where racism and xenophobia are on display. They have been on show in Dresden during the anti-immigrant PEGIDA marches, and outside the Munich courthouse during the sentencing of Beate Zschäpe, a member of the neo-Nazi NSU terror cell.

    When the far-right Pro Chemnitz group launches its newest rally on Friday, both the city’s famous Karl Marx statue and the wolves will be watching. While some of the wolves have an aggressive stance, others appear with blindfolds.

    Chemnitz fights back

    After a series of far-right rallies in early September, Chemnitz has been trying to reclaim its image from the negative headlines. Large banners in the city center decry ethno-nationalism, and an anti-racism concert held under the banner “We are more” attracted some 65,000 people.

  • Wolf showing Hitler salute

    Officials in Chemnitz have voiced their concern that the unrest will permanently damage the city’s image. They’ve gone to great lengths to distance themselves from the right-wing rallies, and have fast-tracked criminal proceedings for those who committed violence or broke hate-speech laws during the protests.

Time to go?

Even voices from the governing parties have joined in calls for Maassen’s dismissal. Lars Klingbeil, general secretary of the Social Democratic Party (SPD), junior partner in Angela Merkel’s governing coalition, tweeted on Thursday afternoon that, “for the SPD leadership it is completely clear that Maassen must go. Merkel must act now.”

Konstantin von Notz, interior policy spokesman for the opposition Green party, took a more nuanced view. While acknowledging that the meeting between Brandner and Maassen was unusual, the revelation that he may have passed on figures about Islamists was less interesting than the fact that the pair had apparently discussed the BfV’s budget.

“This is secret, and can only be discussed among very few Bundestag members in the parliament’s confidential committee,” he told DW.

The pro-business Free Democratic Party (FDP) has also made its mind up about Maassen. The party’s interior policy spokesman, Konstantin Kuhle, told DPA on Thursday that the BfV head was “not neutral” about the AfD, and thus had to go, because of the “general impression after the events of the last few weeks and months.”

Controversy[edit]

2013 mass surveillance disclosures[edit]

During the 2013 mass surveillance disclosures, German media reported that Maaßen visited the headquarters of the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) in January and May. According to classifieddocuments of the German government, Maaßen had agreed to transfer all data collected by the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution via XKeyscore to the NSA.[5]

Snowden question[edit]

In June 2016 he questioned whether Edward Snowden was working for Russian intelligence, and Snowden sent a sarcastic response in perfect German.[6]

Ob Maaßen Agent des SVR oder FSB ist, kann derzeit nicht belegt werden. (Whether Maaßen is an agent of the SVR or FSB [two Russian security services] cannot be currently determined.)

Cooperation with the FSB had also been suggested by Oleg Kalugin, at least since Snowden’s arrival in Russia.[7]

March14 He meets with a London-based professor who claims to have ties to the Russian government.

March15 Russian hackers begin targeting computer networks of the Democratic National Committee, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Clinton campaign.

March19 They send a phishing email to John D. Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman and proceed to steal the entire contents of his account — about 50,000 emails.

March21 Trump names members of his foreign policy team, including Papadopoulos and Carter Page.

March24 The professor introduces Papadopoulos to a Russian woman described as Putin’s niece (she was not) and they all discuss setting up a meeting between Trump and Putin.

March24 Papadopoulos emails campaign officials about his new Russian contacts.

March28 Paul Manafort, a veteran Republican strategist, is brought on to the campaign to lead the delegate-wrangling effort.

March31 He tells Trump, Sessions and others at a campaign meeting that he can arrange a meeting between Trump and Putin. »

April 2016

April1 Shortly after he joins the campaign, Page is invited to deliver a commencement address at a prestigious economic school in Moscow.

April6 A Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee employee opens a link to a fraudulent login page and enters password.

April6 Fake ad: “You know, a great number of black people support us saying that #HillaryClintonIsNotMyPresident.”

April6 Russian hackers send spearphishing emails to the accounts of others on the Clinton campaign.

April7 Fake ad: “I say no to Hillary Clinton / I say no to manipulation.”

April10 Papadopoulos reaches out to the Russian woman.

April11 Manafort emails Konstantin V. Kilimnik, a longtime Russian associate, to make sure Oleg V. Deripaska, a Russian oligarch close to Putin, knows that he is on the Trump campaign.

April11 Kilimnik confirms Deripaska is aware.

April11 Papadopoulos emails the Russian woman about setting up a trip to Russia. She responds that she is “excited about the possibility of a good relationship” with Trump.

April12 Russian hackers use stolen credentials to infiltrate the D.C.C.C.’s computer network and install malware.

April15 They search the network for “hillary,” “cruz,” and “trump” and copy a folder called “Benghazi Investigations.”

April18 The professor introduces Papadopoulos to Ivan Timofeev, a Russian claiming to connections to the Russian foreign ministry.

April18 Russian hackers break into the D.N.C.’s computers.

April18 Papadopoulos has multiple conversations with Timofeev about setting up a meeting between the campaign and the Russian government.

May14 Papadopoulos tells Lewandowski that the Russians are interested in hosting Trump.

May16 Dearborn receives a second, similar, proposal, which he forwards to Kushner, Manafort and Gates, a business associate of Manafort’s. Kushner rebuffs the proposal.  »

Both efforts appear to involve Alexander Torshin, a key figure in Mr. Putin’s United Russia party who was instructed to make contact with the Trump campaign. Mr. Torshin met Donald Trump Jr. at a dinner during the National Rifle Association’s annual convention a few days later.

May19 Fake ad: “Vote Republican, vote Trump, and support the Second Amendment!”

May20 Trump Jr. meets briefly with Torshin and Maria Butina, a Russian later accused of being a covert agent, at an N.R.A.-sponsored dinner.

The Plot to Subvert an Election: Unraveling the Russia Story So Far
Thu, 20 Sep 2018 12:10:31 -0400

mikenova shared this story .

On an October afternoon before the 2016 electiona huge banner was unfurled from the Manhattan Bridge in New York City: Vladimir V. Putin against a Russian-flag background, and the unlikely word “Peacemaker” below. It was a daredevil happy birthday to the Russian president, who was turning 64.

In November, shortly after Donald J. Trump eked out a victory that Moscow had worked to assist, an even bigger banner appeared, this time on the Arlington Memorial Bridge in Washington: the face of President Barack Obama and “Goodbye Murderer” in big red letters.

Police never identified who had hung the banners, but there were clues. The earliest promoters of the images on Twitter were American-sounding accounts, including @LeroyLovesUSA, later exposed as Russian fakes operated from St. Petersburg to influence American voters.

The Kremlin, it appeared, had reached onto United States soil in New York and Washington. The banners may well have been intended as visual victory laps for the most effective foreign interference in an American election in history.

For many Americans, the Trump-Russia story as it has been voluminously reported over the past two years is a confusing tangle of unfamiliar names and cyberjargon, further obscured by the shout-fest of partisan politics. What Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel in charge of the investigation, may know or may yet discover is still uncertain. President Trump’s Twitter outbursts that it is all a “hoax” and a “witch hunt,” in the face of a mountain of evidence to the contrary, have taken a toll on public comprehension.

But to travel back to 2016 and trace the major plotlines of the Russian attack is to underscore what we now know with certainty: The Russians carried out a landmark intervention that will be examined for decades to come. Acting on the personal animus of Mr. Putin, public and private instruments of Russian power moved with daring and skill to harness the currents of American politics. Well-connected Russians worked aggressively to recruit or influence people inside the Trump campaign.

To many Americans, the intervention seemed to be a surprise attack, a stealth cyberage Pearl Harbor, carried out by an inexplicably sinister Russia. For Mr. Putin, however, it was long-overdue payback, a justified response to years of “provocations” from the United States.

And there is a plausible case that Mr. Putin succeeded in delivering the presidency to his admirer, Mr. Trump, though it cannot be proved or disproved. In an election with an extraordinarily close margin, the repeated disruption of the Clinton campaign by emails published on WikiLeaks and the anti-Clinton, pro-Trump messages shared with millions of voters by Russia could have made the difference, a possibility Mr. Trump flatly rejects.

As Mr. Trump emerged in spring 2016 as the improbable favorite for the Republican nomination, the Russian operation accelerated on three fronts — the hacking and leaking of Democratic documents; massive fraud on Facebook and Twitter; and outreach to Trump campaign associates.

Consider 10 days in March. On March 15 of that year, Mr. Trump won five primaries, closing in on his party’s nomination, and crowed that he had become “the biggest political story anywhere in the world.” That same day in Moscow, a veteran hacker named Ivan Yermakov, a Russian military intelligence officer working for a secret outfit called Unit 26165, began probing the computer network of the Democratic National Committee. In St. Petersburg, shift workers posted on Facebook and Twitter at a feverish pace, posing as Americans and following instructions to attack Mrs. Clinton.

On March 21 in Washington, Mr. Trump announced his foreign policy team, a group of fringe figures whose advocacy of warmer relations with Russia ran counter to Republican orthodoxy. Meanwhile, Unit 26165 was poring over the bounty from a separate attack it had just carried out: 50,000 emails stolen from the Clinton campaign’s chairman.

On March 24, one of the members of the Trump foreign policy team, George Papadopoulos, sat in the cafe of an upscale London hotel with a Russian woman who introduced herself as Mr. Putin’s niece and offered to help set up a meeting between the Russian president and Mr. Trump. The woman and the adviser exchanged frequent messages in the weeks that followed. Today, Mr. Padadopoulos is unsure that those messages came from the person he met in the cafe.

The Russian intervention was essentially a hijacking — of American companies like Facebook and Twitter; of American citizens’ feelings about immigration and race; of American journalists eager for scoops, however modest; of the naïve, or perhaps not so naïve, ambitions of Mr. Trump’s advisers. The Russian trolls, hackers and agents totaled barely 100, and their task was to steer millions of American voters. They knew it would take a village to sabotage an election.

Russians or suspected Russian agents — including oligarchs, diplomats, former military officers and shadowy intermediaries — had dozens of contacts during the campaign with Mr. Trump’s associates. They reached out through email, Facebook and Twitter. They sought introductions through trusted business connections of Mr. Trump’s, obscure academic institutions, veterans groups and the National Rifle Association.

They met Trump campaign aides in Moscow, London, New York and Louisville, Ky. One claimed the Russians had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton; another Russian, the Trump campaign was told, would deliver it. In May and June alone, the Trump campaign fielded at least four invitations to meet with Russian intermediaries or officials.

In nearly every case, the Trump aides and associates seemed enthusiastic about their exchanges with the Russians. Over months of such probing, it seems that no one alerted the Federal Bureau of Investigation to the foreign overtures.

Mr. Trump’s position on the Russian contacts has evolved over time: first, that there were none; then, that they did not amount to collusion; next, that in any case collusion was not a crime. That is mere semantics — conspiracy is the technical legal term for abetting the Russians in breaking American laws, such as those outlawing computer hacking and banning foreign assistance to a campaign.

Whether Mr. Trump or any of his associates conspired with the Russians is a central question of the investigation by Mr. Mueller, who has already charged 26 Russians and won convictions or guilty pleas from the former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn; the former campaign chairman, Paul J. Manafort, and his deputy, Rick Gates; and from Mr. Papadopoulos. Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, has pleaded guilty in a separate case.

But none of the convictions to date involve conspiracy. There remains an alternative explanation to the collusion theory: that the Trump aides, far from certain their candidate would win, were happy to meet the Russians because they thought it might lead to moneymaking deals after the election. “Black Caviar,” read the subject line of an email Mr. Manafort got in July 2016 from his associate in Kiev, Ukraine, hinting at the possibility of new largess from a Russian oligarch with whom they had done business.

Nina L. Khrushcheva, a professor of international affairs at the New School and the great-granddaughter of the Soviet premier Nikita S. Khrushchev, said that what Russia pulled off, through creativity and sheer luck, would have been the envy of Mr. Putin’s predecessors: puncturing the American sense of superiority and insisting on Russia’s power and place in the world.

“This operation was to show the Americans — that you bastards are just as screwed up as the rest of us,” Professor Khrushcheva said. “Putin fulfilled the dream of every Soviet leader — to stick it to the United States. I think this will be studied by the K.G.B.’s successors for a very long time.”

The Russian leader thought the United States, and Hillary Clinton, had sought to undermine his presidency.

The first Russian advance party was tiny: two women on a whirlwind American tour. Hitting nine states in three weeks in summer 2014, Anna Bogacheva and Aleksandra Krylova were supposed to “gather intelligence” to help them mimic Americans on Facebook and Twitter. They snapped photos and chatted up strangers from California to New York, on a sort of Russian “Thelma & Louise” road trip for the era of social media.

Even then, federal prosecutors would later say, the Russian government was thinking about the next United States presidential election — perhaps ahead of most Americans. Ms. Bogacheva and Ms. Krylova had been dispatched by their employer, an online propaganda factory in St. Petersburg, to prepare to influence American voters.

But why did Mr. Putin care about the election, then more than two years away? He was seething. The United States, in his view, had bullied and interfered with Russia for long enough. It was high time to fight back.

His motives were rooted in Russia’s ambivalence toward the West, captured in the history of St. Petersburg, Russia’s spectacular northern city and Mr. Putin’s hometown. Peter the Great, the brutal but westward-looking 18th-century czar, had brought in the best Italian architects to construct Russia’s “window on Europe” in a swamp.

Czar Peter’s portrait replaced Vladimir Lenin’s in Mr. Putin’s office when he took a job working for the city’s mayor in the early 1990s. Twenty-five years later, the internet offered a different kind of window on the West — a portal that could be used for a virtual invasion.

Mr. Putin, a former K.G.B. officer, had described the breakup of the Soviet Union as the “greatest geopolitical catastrophe” of the 20th century, a remarkable statement from a man whose country experienced revolution, civil war, bloody purges and the deaths of 27 million people in World War II. Like many of his fellow citizens, Mr. Putin was nostalgic for Russia’s lost superpower status. And he resented what he saw as American arrogance.

The Russian leader believed the United States had relentlessly sought to undermine Russian sovereignty and his own legitimacy. The United States had backed democratic, anti-Russian forces in the so-called color revolutions on Russia’s borders, in Georgia in 2003 and Ukraine in 2004. It had funded pro-democracy Russian activists through American organizations with millions in State Department grants each year.

With little evidence, Mr. Putin believed this American meddling helped produce street demonstrations in Moscow and other cities in 2011, with crowds complaining of a rigged parliamentary election and chanting, “Putin’s a thief!”

Ask a Question

Thank you for your submission.

And Mrs. Clinton, then secretary of state, cheered the protesters on. Russians, she said, “deserve the right to have their voices heard and their votes counted, and that means they deserve free, fair, transparent elections and leaders who are accountable to them.”

Mr. Putin blamed Mrs. Clinton for the turmoil, claiming that when she spoke out, his political enemies “heard the signal and with the support of the U.S. State Department began active work.”

The two tangled again the next year when Mr. Putin pushed for a “Eurasian Union” that would in effect compete with the European Union. Mrs. Clinton sharply dismissed the notion, calling it a scheme to “re-Sovietize the region” and saying the United States would try to block it.

By 2013, with his initial hopes for a “reset” of Russian relations dashed, Mr. Obama, like his top diplomat, no longer bothered to be diplomatic. He criticized Russia’s anti-gay legislation, part of Mr. Putin’s effort to become a global champion for conservative values, and gave a biting description of the Russian leader: “He’s got that kind of slouch, looking like the bored kid in the back of the classroom.” Mr. Putin was reported to be furious.

After Russian troops seized Crimea and carried out a stealth invasion of Ukraine in 2014, relations grew openly hostile. American support for the new government in Kiev and condemnation of Russian behavior heightened Mr. Putin’s rage at being told what he could do and not do in what he considered his own backyard.

If Russia had only a fraction of the United States’ military might and nothing like its economic power, it had honed its abilities in hacking and influence operations through attacks in Eastern Europe. And it could turn these weapons on America to even the score.

By making mischief in the 2016 election, Mr. Putin could wreak revenge on his enemy, Mrs. Clinton, the presumed Democratic nominee, damaging if not defeating her. He could highlight the polarized state of American democracy, making it a less appealing model for Russians and their neighbors. And he could send a message that Russia would not meekly submit to a domineering America.

Hence the two Russian women who toured the United States in 2014, keyboard warriors granted the unusual privilege of real-world travel, hitting both coasts, Illinois, Louisiana and Texas. At that point, according to a Russian document cited by the special counsel, Mr. Putin’s intentions for 2016 were already explicit: to “spread distrust toward the candidates and the political system in general.”

In the intervening two years, Mr. Putin’s ire at America only increased. He blamed the United States for pushing for a full investigation of illicit doping by Russian athletes, which would lead to mass suspensions of the country’s Olympic stars. And when the leaked Panama Papers were published in April 2016, revealing that a cellist who was Mr. Putin’s close friend had secret accounts that had handled $2 billion, he charged that it was a smear operation by the United States.

“Who is behind these provocations?” he asked. “We know that among them are employees of official American institutions.”

Then something unexpected happened. Of the more than 20 major-party candidates running for the American presidency, only Mr. Trump had repeatedly expressed admiration for Mr. Putin as a “strong” leader and brushed off criticism of Russia. Only he had little interest in the traditional American preoccupation with democracy and human rights. Only he had explored business interests in Russia for years, repeatedly pursuing a Trump Tower project in Moscow and bringing his beauty pageant there in 2013.

The Story Behind the Story

To help make sense of the Russia investigation, reporters looked for lessons from the coverage of another complex White House affair: Watergate. A Times Insider column tells the story.

“Do you think Putin will be going to The Miss Universe Pageant in November in Moscow,” the future candidate tweeted at the time, adding wistfully, “if so, will he become my new best friend?”

If Mr. Putin had been designing his ideal leader for the United States, he could hardly have done better than Donald Trump.

For some years, Mr. Trump had attracted attention from Russian conservatives with Kremlin ties. A Putin ally named Konstantin Rykov had begun promoting Mr. Trump as a future president in 2012 and created a Russian-language website three years later to support his candidacy. A Russian think tank, Katehon, had begun running analyses pushing Mr. Trump.

Mr. Trump as a candidate was “tough, rough, says what he thinks, rude, emotional and, apparently, candid,” wrote Alexander Dugin, an ultranationalist philosopher considered a major influence on Mr. Putin, in February 2016. Mr. Dugin declared that Mr. Trump probably had “no chance of winning” against the “quite annoying” Mrs. Clinton, but added a postscript: “We want to put trust in Donald Trump. Vote for Trump, and see what will happen.”

Against all expectations, Republicans across the country began to do just that, and soon Mr. Trump was beating the crowd of mainstream Republicans. Mr. Putin, said Yuval Weber, a Russia scholar, “found for the first time since the collapse of the U.S.S.R. that he has a prospective president of the United States who fundamentally views international issues from the Russian point of view.”

Asked about the surging Mr. Trump in December 2015, Mr. Putin said he

M.N.: I think that this declassification is a very good political move and a good thing by itself, as the help in discovering and establishing the truth. I think all the other related, or involved, or “observer” countries and their Intelligence Services should also declassify all the information they possess on this matter. Most importantly, it would be good, enlightening, and informative to hear from the New Abwehr themselves. Nothing but the complete disclosure would do. The Amnesty should be considered, in my humble opinion, if it  is the most feasible way to deal with this issue. The clarification of the New Abwehr’s legal structures and status and the incorporation of this group, if it indeed exists, into expanded NATO – Mediterranean – Russia “Security Group or structure”, or “Alliance”, or “quasi-Alliance”; should also be considered in the long term.

Botham Jean’s family, lawyers demand Officer Amber Guyger’s firing – Story
 

mikenova shared this story from KDFW.

DALLAS – Lawyers and family members of Botham Jean, the man who was shot and killed by a Dallas police officer, are demanding that she be fired.

More court documents were also released as public record on Friday in the shooting investigation.

RELATED: Protests continue demanding justice for Botham Jean

The new information from the search warrants reveals investigators are setting a timeline of who was coming and going from South Side Flats on the night of the shooting. Investigators removed the door lock from Officer Amber Guyger’s apartment and downloaded the electronic code information. They did the same for Botham’s apartment door lock exactly one floor above. In addition, they downloaded surveillance video from the apartment management office and gained access to building entry logs.

The new documents just made public on Friday give a glimpse into the investigation, but do not say whether a search warrant was served on Guyger’s apartment or personal vehicle. It comes the same day as Botham’s family and attorneys call for an internal investigation into DPD and the immediate termination of Guyger.

“We are calling, we are demanding that Officer Amber Guyger be fired and terminated immediately. She should not still be on the payroll for the city of Dallas,” said Lee Merritt, an attorney for the Jean family.

Guyger is charged with manslaughter for the death of 26-year-old Botham Jean. Dallas police said she had just gotten off her shift last Thursday night when she mistook Jean’s apartment for her own at the South Side Flats near Downtown Dallas.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Guyger said she was able to get into the wrong apartment with her key since it was left slightly open. She walked in, saw a shadow and fired her weapon.

Q.: Why does FBI have “a long history of incompetence and worse”?

A.: Clear and simple: because the FBI was thoroughly penetrated and  subverted by Abwehr since 1930-s

Michael Novakhov

“The fact is, the FBI has a long history of incompetence and worse: falsifying evidence; framing innocent people (go hereherehereherehere, and here); and even shooting people for what appears to be no justifiable reason. With the shootings, the Bureau “reviews” the situation, then, it almost always absolves itself.

When its employees try to work within the system to improve it, quietly blowing an internal whistle, they are subjected to severe retaliation.”

Spotlight on the FBI: The Bureau’s Checkered Past and Present
 

mikenova shared this story from WhoWhatWhy.

We presented a story on March 27, 2017 — Why FBI Can’t Tell All on Trump, Russia — that contained troubling information about the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Some found it shocking, even during these times when nothing seems shocking anymore.

To be sure, with the FBI, as with all institutions, there are extenuating circumstances, the competing priorities and agendas, unrealistic expectations, and tremendous pressure — from the press, from the public, and from above — to produce results.

This pressure may partly explain the bad choices the Bureau continues to make. Partly.

The fact is, the FBI has a long history of incompetence and worse: falsifying evidence; framing innocent people (go hereherehereherehere, and here); and even shooting people for what appears to be no justifiable reason. With the shootings, the Bureau “reviews” the situation, then, it almost always absolves itself.

When its employees try to work within the system to improve it, quietly blowing an internal whistle, they are subjected to severe retaliation.

For more on the range of problems at the Bureau, see the links and summaries below: a small selection of our FBI stories that demonstrate the consequences of those bad choices. They have endangered national security, harmed our civil liberties, harmed innocent people, and appear to have put out false narratives, misleading the government, the media, and the public.

Disinformation Part 1: How Trolls Control an Internet Forum (01/27/2016)

Treachery is as old as mankind, but let’s start with the late J. Edgar Hoover, the old trickster behind the FBI’s Counterintelligence Program, also known as COINTELPRO. The Church Committee reported that “Bureau witnesses admit that many of the targets were nonviolent and most had no connections with a foreign power.” Cointelpro supposedly ended in 1971but the author of this story has identified a variety of insidious Cointelpro techniques in political forums to cause disruption, suppress dissent, and spread disinformation.

FBI, Snipers & Occupy (06/27/2013)

Would you be shocked to learn that the FBI apparently knew that some organization, perhaps even a law enforcement agency or private security outfit, had contingency plans to assassinate peaceful protestors in a major American city — and did nothing to intervene?

FBI’s Amazing Trick to Avoid Accountability (07/08/2015)

How credible are the reports of interviews filed by FBI agents working a case? The FBI’s process for handling interview reports (302s) is hardly an ideal one for accurate recording and transmittal of what was said during an interview. The process is thus: two FBI agents ask questions and listen to the answers — without tape recording or obtaining a certified transcript. Instead, they return to their office and, based on their recollection and any notes they may have taken during the interview, write up a summary of what transpired. Summaries are, in most cases, written hours later, sometimes even the following day.

FBI Takes Step Backwards on Transparency (03/02/2017)

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), a federal agency already considered notoriously opaque by Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) experts, is taking steps that will further limit the public’s access to its files. As of March 1, the FBI will no longer be accepting FOIA requests by email. Instead, requesters will have to submit requests via fax, “snail mail,” or to an online portal hosted by the FBI called eFOIPA (Freedom of Information/Privacy Act). The FBI says the portal will “significantly increase efficiency” by automating the process for the receipt of and the opening of requests.

Protecting FBI Whistleblowers From Retaliation (12/17/2015)

There are few things in Washington that garner bipartisan support these days. Protecting Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) whistleblowers is now on that short list… the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the ranking Democrat on the panel jointly introduced legislation to better shield from retaliation Bureau employees who report waste, fraud or misconduct. FBI whistleblowers are among the most poorly protected in the federal workforce. “It’s no secret that FBI whistleblowers often face harsh consequences for simply trying to address failures or misconduct at work,” Judiciary Committee Chairman and frequent FBI critic Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said.

How the Media Conned the Public into Loving the FBI (04/09/2014)

Smart people who think they are well informed about a subject — say, the FBI’s role as the nation’s elite law enforcement agency — usually “know” what they think they know based on exposure to mass media — television, radio, newspapers, magazines, books. But when mass media have been corrupted, the reliability of the “knowledge” becomes suspect. That’s the case with the FBI. As “Hoover’s FBI and the Fourth Estate: The Campaign to Control the Press and the Bureau’s Image” shows, the performance of supposedly first-rate FBI agents has been dismal time and again when the citizens of the United States needed them most, including perhaps most notably the run-up to the events of September 11, 2001.Yet you wouldn’t know that if you were hearing mainstream media accounts.

Tsarnaev Case Judge: FBI Interview Reports Are Unreliable and Cast in Stone (05/20/2015)

The Federal Bureau of Intimidation? The presiding judge in the case against convicted marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev warned jurors last week against automatically assuming the reliability of FBI interview reports. US District Court Judge George O’Toole’s admonition inadvertently bolstered long-standing criticisms of FBI interview practices — that the FBI creates its own “truth” by refusing to electronically record interviews, and then forcing witnesses to go along with it using threats of jail time under the federal “making false statements” statute.

Classic Who: Was Tamerlan Tsarnaev a Double Agent Recruited by the FBI? (06/26/2016)

There is a legitimate reason to question the FBI. There are times when the Bureau seems to be playing dangerous games with dangerous people, as shown in the article below. There are aspects of the Boston Marathon bombing where the official story just doesn’t add up. What if these inconsistencies point to something amiss on a far deeper level? What if the FBI’s initial claim that it didn’t know who the Tsarnaev brothers were — when in fact it knew about them for several years — hides an even bigger embarrassment?

FBI Had Direct Link to Bin Laden — in 1993  (02/28/2014)

The FBI had a human source in direct contact with Osama bin Laden in 1993 and discovered that he was eager to finance terror attacks on the United States, according to little-noticed testimony in a court case several years back. The testimony, just reported by the Washington Times, underlines how poorly we understand the degree to which the federal government was interacting with Osama bin Laden and monitoring the activities of a network that came to be widely known as Al Qaeda… It was in 1993 that plotters trained in Afghanistan detonated a truck bomb beneath the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

FBI Knew About Saudi 9/11 Hijacker Ties, But Lied to Protect “National Security” (07/20/2014)

The FBI apparently has known for a decade about links between powerful Saudi interests and the alleged 9/11 hijackers, and has been forced to tacitly admit that it lied about it for all of these years.

New FBI Tactic Hints at Big DC Cover-Up of Saudi 911 Funding (04/02/2015)

The FBI is disowning an explosive internal report that suggests high-level Saudi involvement. And Washington seems happy to accept this latest peculiar FBI apologia. In this bizarre development, the Bureau claims that an internal FBI document indirectly tying the alleged Al Qaeda hijackers to a prominent Saudi prince was fabricated.

What the 28 Pages Released on Saudi 9/11 Ties Missed (07/15/2016)

With Congress on Friday abruptly dumping the long-suppressed congressional panel report on connections between the 9/11 hijackers and elements tied to the Saudi royal family, it’s important to note the crucial, stronger evidence, that has never gotten mainstream attention… In early September of 2011, Florida-based journalists reported that a secret FBI probe, never shared with Congressional investigators or the presidential 9/11 commission, had uncovered information indicating the possibility of support for the hijackers from previously unknown confederates in the United States during 2001. Now WhoWhatWhy reveals that those alleged confederates were closely tied to influential members of the Saudi ruling elite.

Official 9/11 Narrative on Life Support (07/19/2016)

With the declassification Friday afternoon of the infamous “28 Pages,” the foundation of the official 9/11 narrative is really beyond repair at this point. Al Qaeda did not act alone in carrying out the 2001 terror attacks on America that killed nearly 3,000 people. Foreign government officials did indeed provide financial and logistical support to the hijackers. Leads to that effect were never fully investigated.

Why CIA’s Richard Helms Lied About Oswald: Part 1

This is a rumination on lies — layer upon layer of lies — told by US intelligence agencies and other officials about what Lee Harvey Oswald, or someone pretending to be him, was allegedly doing in Mexico City just weeks before the Kennedy assassination. The original goal, it seems, was to associate Oswald, in advance of the events of Dealey Plaza, with the USSR and Cuba. In an apparent attempt to bring the Russians into the picture, someone delivered to the FBI’s Dallas office an audiotape purportedly of Oswald calling the Soviet embassy in Mexico City. That failed, though, when FBI agents decided that the voice did not seem to be Oswald’s. Two days later, the FBI got on board the subterfuge by falsely reporting that “no tapes were taken to Dallas.” Because of this lie, an investigation more than a decade later by the House Select Committee on Assassinations would erroneously declare that there was no “basis for concluding that there had been an Oswald impostor.” (The existence of an Oswald impersonator in the months before the president’s murder would in and of itself have been prima facie evidence of a conspiracy in Kennedy’s death.)

Behind-the-Scenes Interview on Exclusive Trump-Russia-FBI Story (03/28/2017)

Earlier this week, Russ Baker, C. Collins and Jonathan Z. Larsen broke a story that caused a major splash. The article may prove a turning point in understanding the nature of the FBI’s investigation into the Trump/Russia connection — and why it may in fact be compromised. In this Podcast, Baker and Larsen describe the story, the bizarre cast of characters and the tangled web they created. Most importantly, they explain what is at stake.

More About Felix Slater — the Problematical Friend Trump Forgot (04/04/2017)

WhoWhatWhy’s March 27 exclusive on Donald Trump, the FBI, Russia, and the mob focused on several key figures. One was Felix Sater, a Trump associate and prized FBI informant. We delved into his criminal past, his company, Bayrock, and its work with the Trump Organization. Sater was even more intimately involved with Trump and his fortunes than we initially realized. According to a sworn 2008 deposition in a suit Trump filed against the author Timothy O’Brien, the developer gave Sater’s company, Bayrock, an exclusive on all development deals in Russia.

Russ Baker Talks With Comedians on Trump, Russian Mafia, FBI (04/08/2017)

Russ Baker joins “serious comedians” Tim Dillon and Ray Crump to discuss his recent groundbreaking article on Donald Trump, the Russian mob, and the FBI. Featured prominently in the discussion is Felix Sater, a curious Trump associate whose business card claimed “Senior Advisor to Donald Trump”, yet in a deposition Trump claimed he wouldn’t recognize him if he was in the room. It turns out that Sater, a convicted criminal with mob connections, had become an FBI informant inside a mob organization with roots in Russia and ties to Vladimir Putin. What does it all mean? How could this important but unknown past history explain Putin’s suspected effort to influence the election? Is the president compromised by the Kremlin? Could Trump have been working with the FBI?

The New Left, the Klan, and FBI Counterintelligence: David Cunningham: 9780520246652: Amazon.com: Books
 

mikenova shared this story .

“Cunningham’s landmark study of the FBI’s response to Sixties protest couldn’t be more timely. We gain fresh and disturbing insight into the culture and dynamics of the agency at a time when once again it has been empowered to monitor political dissidence. We need this history so as to avoid repeating it.”―Richard Flacks, author Making History: The American Left and the American Mind
“Cunningham reveals the programs and priorities of the FBI’s domestic surveillance in the 1960s with an eye for the telling detail, and with extensive new research. He shows how the extreme bureaucratic centralization of the agency often handicapped, rather than helped, field agents who had creative ideas about how to pursue the FBI’s goals. This is the most important book on how the FBI shapes its agenda and its actions, in relation to targeted groups, in some time. At a time when the FBI is being called on to deal with new public threats, we need the insights of this work.”―Jack A. Goldstone, Hazel Professor of Public Policy, George Mason University
“For years political scientists and social movement scholars have theorized and sought, in various ways, to measure ‘political repression.’ Despite these efforts, the actual social and organizational dynamics that shape repression have largely remained a black box. By fashioning a rich, systematic account of the origins and operation of the FBI’s notorious COINTELPRO program, Cunningham has gone a long way toward redressing this problem.”―Doug McAdam, co-author of Dynamics of Contention
“This is a timely book. Cunningham’s thoughtful, thoroughly researched history of the FBI’s purposeful repression of dissident movements under the COINTELPRO’s New Left and White Hate programs raises disturbing questions about the FBI’s conduct of ‘terrorist’ investigations dating from the 1970s and intensified in the aftermath of September 11.”―Athan Theoharis, author of Chasing Spies: How the FBI Failed in counterintelligence but Promoted the Politics of McCarthyism in the Cold War Years
“A devastating portrait of a bureaucracy unleashing widespread surveillance and repression while swatting away the restraints of logic, ethics, and the Bill of Rights. Demonstrates through a convincing statistical analysis that the FBI’s COINTELPRO operations were not primarily devoted to investigating criminal activity, but rather to crushing unpopular dissent.”―Chip Berlet, co-author of Right-Wing Populism in America
“David Cunningham’s calm, dispassionate, and authoritative study of the FBI’s notorious COINTELPRO activities of the 1960s gives us much to think about. Putting these programs into historical context and an original theoretical framework, he reminds us that the violation of American constitutional principles cannot be a useful tool in any alleged effort to preserve the American way of life. This is equally true in today’s turbulent times as during previous crises.”―Sanford J. Ungar, president of Goucher College and author of FBI: An Uncensored Look Behind the Walls

Bob Dylan Ballad Of a Thin Man – YouTube
Shared by 1 person

You walk into the room with your pencil in your hand You see somebody naked and you say, “Who is that man?” You try so hard but you don’t understand Just what you will say when you get home

Because something is happening here but you don’t know what it is Do you, Mr. Jones?

You raise up your head and you ask, “Is this where it is?” And somebody points to you and says, “It’s his” And you say, “What’s mine?” and somebody else says, “Well, what is?” And you say, “Oh my God, am I here all alone?” But something is happening and you don’t know what it is Do you, Mr. Jones? You hand in your ticket and you go watch the geek Who immediately walks up to you when he hears you speak And says, “How does it feel to be such a freak?” And you say, “Impossible!” as he hands you a bone And something is happening here but you don’t know what it is Do you, Mr. Jones? You have many contacts among the lumberjacks To get you facts when someone attacks your imagination But nobody has any respect, anyway they already expect you to all give a check To tax-deductible charity organizations Ah, you’ve been with the professors and they’ve all liked your looks With great lawyers you have discussed lepers and crooks You’ve been through all of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s books You’re very well-read, it’s well-known But something is happening here and you don’t know what it is Do you, Mr. Jones? Well, the sword swallower, he comes up to you and then he kneels He crosses himself and then he clicks his high heels And without further notice, he asks you how it feels And he says, “Here is your throat back, thanks for the loan” And you know something is happening but you don’t know what it is Do you, Mr. Jones? Now, you see this one-eyed midget shouting the word “Now” And you say, “For what reason?” and he says, “How” And you say, “What does this mean?” and he screams back, “You’re a cow! Give me some milk or else go home” And you know something’s happening but you don’t know what it is Do you, Mr. Jones? Well, you walk into the room like a camel, and then you frown You put your eyes in your pocket and your nose on the ground There ought to be a law against you comin’ around You should be made to wear earphones ‘Cause something is happening and you don’t know what it is Do you, Mr. Jones?

FBI director says China is its top counterintelligence priority – WCBI TV 

M.N.: In what sense? Are these the “Chinese” in the “Sun Tzu sense” or in the “New York slang sense”? 

Are these the same “ubiquitous Chinese, practicing all kinds of deceptions against everybody, as their traditional “Art of War” prescribes”? 

Me thinks humbly, my dear freunds, that what is happening here is the construction of the joint, common US – Russian (Dis)Information System, or Mass Media System as the main mechanism of the social control and manipulation, based on a common Information Space – the Internet. And this process is gleefully presided over and managed by Germany, or more specifically, by the “New Abwehr”, as their tool of the world domination. 

The common thread in the pronouncements on both the Russian and the US sides is the “Chinese threat”, which is undeniably present but is not the main driver. This is the “New Abwehr’s” new “Chinese” mask. The style is the same like in their previous operations: the threat is not invented but is significantly exaggerated, with the factored-in geopolitical and other benefits. 

I think, this process started during the 2016 Elections Campaign, and I did mention it specifically at that time. The following quote is from:

Wednesday, November 9, 2016 – The Autumn Of Our Discontent – by Michael Novakhov

Trump and Russian intelligence

There is maybe a five-year plot by Russian intelligence to recruit Trump:

Last: but certainly not least, David Corn at Mother Jones reports the existence of a memo shared with the FBI by a former western intelligence official who now does private security work. This memo alleges that the “Russian regime has been cultivating, supporting and assisting TRUMP for at least 5 years” and that Trump “and his inner circle have accepted a regular flow of intelligence from the Kremlin, including on his Democratic and other political rivals.” According to the memo, the goal “endorsed by PUTIN, has been to encourage splits and divisions in western alliance.” Corn reports that the FBI asked for followup information from the author of the memo (meaning they considered him credible), which has been provided, but that he does not know whether the Bureau has been able to confirm or debunk its contents.” 

Curiously enough, “the reason the FBI did not join the Intelligence Community letter accusing Russian hackers of trying to intervene in the US election is that Comey felt it was inappropriate for the Bureau to comment on a politically salient matter so close to the election.” It is also curious, how easy it is apparently, to use the foil and the counter-accusations of “the new McCarthyism”

Democrats Claim Putin is Helping Trump
Trump, a puppet of the Russian KGB

engages in the crude disinformation campaign, targeting the naïve morons, very much like himself (the only difference is that he has his own, clear ulterior motive: money), the example of which can be this piece, a reminiscence of the best efforts of the Russian Stalinist propaganda. 

The clear connection between Trump’s campaign and the Russian intelligence, engaging in cyber-thefts, collections of “kompromat”, blatant propaganda through Russian government’s information channels, such as “Sputnik” and “RT’, and possibly the wide range of other activities, that we might not be fully aware of, makes them

practically a single information-intelligence entity,

created under the guise of the free democratic elections. The failure, on the part of the FBI, to investigate and to address this issue of brazen interference into the American political process and elections fully and head-on might be viewed in itself as a dereliction of duty and the prosecutable criminal omission. And I certainly hope that this grave error of omission, probably much more significant than the clearly orchestrated Mrs. Clinton’s “emails crisis”, will be prosecuted fully and soon. 

“Trump and his campaign have also spread propaganda created as part of the Kremlin’s effort, relying on bogus information generated through traditional Russian disinformation techniques. In one instance, a manipulated document was put out onto the internet anonymously by propagandists working with Russia; within hours, Trump was reciting that false information at a campaign rally. The Trump campaign has also spread claims from Sputnik, another news outlet identified by American intelligence as part of the Russian disinformation campaign. For example, almost immediately after the posting of an article by Sputnik attacking this Newsweek reporter, the Trump campaign emailed a link to the piece to American reporters, urging them to pursue the same story… 
Western intelligence and law enforcement say tens of thousands of people have been working with Russia on its hacking and disinformation campaign for many years. They include propagandists and cyber-operatives stationed in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Novosibirsk, located in the southwestern part of Siberia. Operations have also been conducted in the United States, primarily out of New York City, Washington D.C. and Miami. Those involved include a large number of Russian emigres, as well as Americans and other foreign nationals. Intelligence operations in Europe and the U.S. have determined that the money these emigres receive for their work is disguised as payments from a Russian pension system. One U.S. official says there is evidence many of these Americans and foreign nationals do not know they are part of Russia’s propaganda operation.” 

The failure on the part of the FBI to investigate in-depth, fully and without any bias, the connection between the Russian intelligence (and/or in conjunction with other foreign services), despite the clearly present clues, with the terrorist activities on the US soil, apparently, in accordance with the Obama Administration’s general ideological guidance, might also imply the potential elements of criminal culpability. “We do not operate on innuendo”, unless these “innuendos” are fully investigated and turn out some credible and actionable evidential proves, at least circumstantial, which, in my view, in some cases, are almost easily seen. Otherwise these “innuendos” will continue to operate on us, with no end in sight.

China is the target of economic espionage investigations in nearly all 56 of the FBI field offices. “CBS This Morning” co-host Norah O’Donnell met up with FBI director Christopher Wray at the agency’s headquarters in Washington on Wednesday, where he spoke to her about how China is looking to steal secrets on everything from technology to agriculture.

CHRISTOPHER WRAY: If I look at our counterintelligence mission overall, China is our top priority in that space… We’ve had cases involving everything from turbine technology in places like upstate New York to corn seed development in Iowa.

NORAH O’DONNELL: What do you mean corn seed? They’re trying to steal our corn seed?

WRAY: Well, of course we have, I think America’s agriculture is the envy of the world and we’re very proud of it and we should be. And whenever we’re the best at something, somebody else is chasing us….It’s something that I think most Americans don’t understand.

O’DONNELL: But what are they trying to steal? What do they want?

WRAY: They’re trying to steal our trade secrets, our ideas, our innovation.

FBI Director Christopher Wray and Norah O’Donnell

CBS News

O’DONNELL: The U.S. trade representative put a figure on the theft of intellectual property and it’s up to $600 billion annually. That’s enormous.
WRAY: The thing that people need to understand is that this has an impact on everyday people. It has an impact on American businesses. It has an impact on American jobs. It has an impact on American consumers.

O’DONNELL: How so?

WRAY: Well, China’s goal is to take what it can and become essentially self-sufficient and put American businesses out of business.

O’DONNELL: Well, to replace America as the world’s economic superpower.

WRAY: I think that’s their goal and they’re pretty open about it.

O’DONNELL: It’s not only these individuals who are engaged in spying, it’s companies. You’ve raised concerns about the Chinese telecom giants Huawei and ZTE. Why are they national security risks?

WRAY: Well, anytime you start talking about foreign companies that are beholden to foreign governments that don’t share our values and our dedication to the rule of law…It enables them to conduct economic espionage. It enables them to conduct different kinds of cyberattacks. It enables them to steal information in a variety of ways.

O’DONNELL: The president intervened a few months ago to save ZTE from some of these crippling financial penalties that Congress wanted. Was the president wrong?
WRAY: I continue to be very concerned and I think the intelligence community continues to be very concerned about the threat to our telecommunications infrastructure presented by some of the kinds of companies that are beholden to foreign governments that don’t share our values… And the idea of letting the fox in the henhouse is something that I think people need to be really, really careful about before we find out that we’re gonna regret it.

O’DONNELL: Director Wray, I know you have been asked this many times… But I do want to ask it of you because the president has issued repeated attacks on the FBI, on the integrity of its work, on the people who work here at the FBI. In fact, he’s said that the reputation of the FBI is in tatters. Those attacks have to have taken their toll?

WRAY: I’ll tell you what I see. I see 37,000 men and women who get up every day trying to keep 325 million American people safe. I see people who work their tails off in that effort, who are people of character, of courage, of professionalism and diligence. And we do thousands and thousands of investigations every year. I think about the agents that I swear in at Quantico several times a year who compete like heck to be accepted into the ranks of the FBI…I could give you example after example, that’s the FBI that I see. That’s the real FBI and that’s what we’re about.

O’DONNELL: How would you describe your relationship with President Trump?

WRAY: My focus is on having a very professional relationship with the president. I think that’s what I’ve been trying to do since day one and that’s true today just as much as it was on day one.

O’DONNELL: He tweets a lot about Cabinet members and top members of his administration. But you specifically have never been the subject of one of his tweets.

WRAY: Well I’m not much of a Twitter guy, as people will tell you. And that’s not meant to criticize Twitter. Social media commentary has its place. I just find that I’ve got enough to do all day long running the FBI without getting too hung up on worrying about what’s on Twitter.

WILMINGTON, N.C. — Hurricane Florence could batter parts of coastal North and South Carolina with hurricane conditions for 24 hours or more and bring up to 40 inches of rain in its center, federal emergency officials said Wednesday.


Here’s the latest on Hurricane Florence

  • The Category 2 storm is forecast to bring 15-25 inches of rain in some areas, with up to 40 inches of rainfall near its exact center.
  • As of 11 p.m. Wednesday, the storm was about 280 miles east-southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina, with maximum sustained winds of 110 mph. It was moving northwest at 17 mph.
  • About 1.7 million people in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia have been warned to evacuate.
  • Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and Maryland have declared states of emergency.

The storm was expected to make landfall late Thursday or Friday in coastal North Carolina and then potentially stall as it churns its way slowly down the coast, FEMA’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration liaison Steve Goldstein said at a news conference Wednesday morning.

“This could mean that parts of North and South Carolina near the coast will experience hurricane-force winds and hurricane conditions for 24 hours or more,” he said.

But regardless of when actual landfall occurs, hurricane-force winds were extending 80 miles from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds were extending outward of 195 miles from the center, the hurricane center said.

Coastal North Carolina could get 20 to 30 inches of rain, with isolated areas getting up to 40 inches, and all that rain could produce “catastrophic flash flooding,” the hurricane center said. South Carolina could see 5 to 10 inches, with isolated areas getting 20 inches.

A large area of North Carolina was forecast to get 10 inches of rain or more Friday into Saturday.

“This is not going to be a glancing blow,” said Jeff Byard, FEMA’s associate administrator for response and recovery. “This is going to be a Mike Tyson punch to the Carolina coast.”

The storm weakened to a Category 3 hurricane Wednesday afternoon and then weakened to just below that to a Category 2 as of 11 p.m. But the National Hurricane Center warned that “life-threatening storm surge and rainfall” were still expected, and the forecast predicts little change in strength before the storm’s center reaches the U.S. coast.

Wilmington, a city of around 119,000 on North Carolina’s coast, is along the forecast track. In the final hours before authorities shut down access to Wrightsville Beach, a town just east of Wilmington along the ocean, residents scrambled to secure their possessions, board up their windows, pack their cars and head inland.

Many lived through past storms, including hurricanes Fran and Bertha in 1996 and Floyd in 1999. They expected Florence to be at least as bad. But they largely accepted that with a sense of calm, saying that most homes on the island were more resilient than the cottages wiped out in those prior storms.

“It’s a much different beach here now,” said local Todd Schoen, just before he drove off the island with his wife and 9-year-old twin sons to stay with his parents four miles inland. “They’re all better prepared. A lot of those old beach houses are gone. They were trampled, washed away, knocked down and replaced with other bigger, better constructed houses. It’s a different time now.”

Duke Energy, the main power supplier for North and South Carolina, said on Twitter that as many as 1 million to 3 million of the company’s 4 million customers could experience power outages.

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper warned those under evacuation orders that time was running out and urged the state to prepare for the powerful storm.

“North Carolina, my message is clear: Disaster is at the doorstep and it’s coming in,” he said at a news conference Wednesday morning. “If you’re on the coast, there’s still time to get out safely. No possession is worth your life.”

He warned North Carolinians to plan to be without power for days and “understand the rain may last for days and not hours.”

“The National Weather Service has just said it will be unbelievably damaging and they can’t emphasize that enough,” he added. Cooper said on MSNBC that some 2,800 National Guard soldiers have been activated and others are standing by.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal declared a state of emergency on Wednesday afternoon, joining South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and Maryland. West Virginia has declared a state of preparedness.

“In light of the storm’s forecasted southward track after making landfall, I encourage Georgians to be prepared for the inland effects of the storm as well as the ensuing storm surge in coastal areas,” he said in a statement.

Christina Saracina, a resident of Cape Carteret, North Carolina, said she was evacuating with her elderly parents and headed to Atlanta.

“We sat through a Category 2 hurricane before and it did enough damage that we decided that if it was a Category 3 or above we were out,” she said. “It was a hard decision because you’re leaving all your possessions and your home. You’re trying to pack whatever you can and go.”

She said she boarded up her home and her parents’ home before leaving.

“The area was going to be a disaster zone,” she said. “There’s a lot of trees in the area and we’re by the water.”

M.N.: Thank you for pointing out and reminding us about the situation in France, Maestro. A lot of parallels, you are absolutely correcto. But I do not think that the roots of these troubles should be traced back to the Afghan war and conflict (suspect is the Afghan man carrying the child identity papers). I think that the real root causes go back much, much deeper.

“What happenedA man armed with a knife and an iron bar started on a violent rampage shortly after 11 pm (10 pm CET) on the banks of the Canal de l’Ourcq in the northeastern district of

Quai de Loire

phonetically: “Gay de Lore”, “Gay de Louvre”, etc.: “The Gay of the Lore”, “The Gay of Legends”, The Gay of the Louvre, etc., etc..

near the

MK2 cinema.” 

“MucK-Carthyism 2, the French 2018 version: the character assassination of Mr. Macron following the very similar by its design and nature, attack on the American Presidency as an Institute; and, very likely, by the same forces. There is an abundance of the “telling words, details, and hints” in the published reports of this accident.

“Eyewitness Youssef Najah, 28, said he saw the man running and holding a knife about 25-30 cms long.

People playing boules chased the attacker off by throwing balls at him, forcing him into a side street where he attacked two British tourists.

“Around four or five balls hit him in the head, but they weren’t able to stop him,” Najah said.

The man was unconscious when officers arrived on the scene having been overpowered by onlookers and authorities took him to hospital, according to police.

An Algerian man told Le Parisien newspaper he was part of the group that stopped the knifeman and said he “looked drugged”.

He said the attacker sustained “several blows from petanque balls, iron bars and sticks”.

Some hypothetical interpretations: 

“Holding a knife about 25-30 cms long” might refer to the “Night of the Long Knives“. 

“Petanque balls” might alliterate and allude to Petain, etc., depending on  your inclinations and preferences. 

“Eyewitness Youssef Najah” deserves praise (and promotion) for his decisive actions of throwing the Petain balls at the attacker’s head. As his family name implies, it was the complete, overwhelming Success! Did they break the purp’s bones, finally? 

The iron bars will break our bones but the “telling names” will never enlighten us. This is the right time to declare the unconditional Victory, to go home, to get a lot of sweet and salty popcorn, and to brace ourselves for all these exciting upcoming sequels and their sequelae. 

The eyewitnesses and their powers of observation are the bright X-rays of hope among all those canals, canalysers, canalysts, canalysands, canalytes, catalysts, “canned food”, etc., etc., and all sorts of Canalyas, in and out of their uniforms; on the both banks of the fast and murky “Canal de l’Ourcq“, running through the Bassin de la Villette, or the  “Quai de la Loire (check out the pronunciation and see the amazing map at this link), to be more exact.

Teen arrested on murder charge in Auburn shooting

An Opelika teen was arrested Sunday on murder charges in the death of a 20-year-old Tuskegee man stemming from a shooting near Toomer’s Corner earlier in the day, Auburn police said.

The teen, a 17-year-old whose name was not released, was apprehended by Auburn police and members of the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force from an Auburn home. The 17-year-old was arrest on a warrant charging him with murder as an adult. He was taken to the Lee County Jail where he is being held on $150,000 bond, police said.

Four others were injured in the shooting that led to the death of Evan Mikale Wilson, 20, of Tuskegee. Wilson was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Lee County coroner.

Police, who were responding to a nearby call to disperse a loud crowd at around 2:30 a.m. near the shooting on West Magnolia Avenue, located several victims from the shooting. The incident occured down the block from Toomer’s Corner, a popular gathering place after Auburn football games.

Auburn police said the case remains under investigation and “additional charges are possible” in the case.

Three of the four others injured in the shooting — a 17-year-old male, a 19-year-old female, both of Opelika, and a 21-year-old Auburn University student from Hilton Head, S.C. — were taken to East Alabama Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. The fourth victim, a 16-year-old Opelika male, was flown to Piedmont Columbus Regional Medical Center by air ambulance with serious injuries.

Police said an altercation preceded the shooting but there were no further details about the argument.

Anyone with information about the case were urged to call the Auburn Police Division at 334-501-3140 or the tip line at 334-246-1391.

2 Tourists Among 7 Injured, Attacker Nabbed

A group of men playing pétanque, a popular game in France, reportedly tried to stop the attacker, with one of them even throwing the pétanque ball at him. However, the attacker dodged their attempts and went towards the side street and attacked more people, The New York Times said in its report.

According to the police, of the seven injured, four are in a critical condition, The Telegraph reports. Of the two British tourists, one encountered a chest injury while the other was stabbed in the head.

Mounir Mahjoubi, the junior minister for digital affairs in the French government, tweeted out thanking those who tried to stop the attacker, by saying:

Seven wounded in Paris knife rampage as petanque players try to disarm attacker by pelting him with boules
 

mikenova shared this story .

Seven people were wounded in Paris late Sunday by a knife-wielding man, a terrifying attack that bystanders tried to stop by throwing petanque balls at the assailant.

Four of the victims were in a critical condition, police said, after the man brandishing a large blade and and iron bar went on the rampage next to a canal in the northeast of the capital.

The suspect is believed to be an Afghan national and has been arrested, said a source close to the enquiry, adding he had targeted “strangers” but that “nothing at this stage shows signs of a terrorist nature”.

Chaos erupted on the banks of the Bassin de la Villette, an area popular with locals and visitors who frequent the cafes, cinemas and other cultural venues along its banks, just after 11:00pm .

Eyewitness Youssef Najah, 28, said he was walking beside the canal when he saw a man running and holding a knife about 25-30 cm long.

“There were around 20 people chasing him. They started throwing petanque balls at him,” Mr Najah said, referring to the sport popular in France also known as boules.

“Around four or five balls hit him in the head, but they weren’t able to stop him,” he added.

According to the same witness, the attacker then dived into an alleyway, where the man “tried to hide behind two British tourists. We said to them: ‘Watch out, he has a knife”. But they didn’t react”.

The pair were then attacked, he said.

A security guard at one of two cinemas on either side of the water said he had seen the attacker running away from two men who were trying to stop him.

“He had an iron bar in his hand which he threw at the men chasing him, then he took out a knife,” he told AFP.

The UK foreign office said it was aware of reports of the attack and was “urgently investigating this incident” in cooperation with French authorities, British media reported.

A police investigation has been launched for attempted murder, according to a judicial source.

It is the latest of several knife attacks France has seen in recent months, with terrorism being ruled out in most cases.

On August 23, a man stabbed his mother and sister to death and seriously injured another person in a town near Paris before being shot dead by police.

The motive for the violence remained unclear despite a claim by ISIS that it was an attack by one of its fighters responding to the terror organisation’s propaganda.

Authorities said the 36-year-old had serious mental health problems and had been on a terror watch list since 2016.

That attack came days after an Afghan asylum-seeker was arrested in town of Perigueux for a drunken rampage with a knife in which four people were wounded, one seriously.

Police said investigators had “very quickly” dismissed a terrorist motive after the August 13 incident.

And on June 17, two people were hurt in another southern town when a woman shouting “Allahu akbar” (God is greatest) attacked them in a supermarket with a boxcutter knife.

France has been on high alert following a string of jihadist attacks in recent years, often by people who have become radicalised or claim to have acted in the name of ISIS.

More than 240 people have been killed by Islamist extremists since a massacre at the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in Paris in January 2015.

Man arrested after ‘two Britons’ among seven stabbed in Paris knife attack
 

mikenova shared this story .

Two British tourists were among seven people stabbed during a knife attack in downtown Paris, according to local media.

Police have arrested a man in connection with the incident, which happened on the banks of a popular canal in the northeastern district of Quai de la Loire at just after 11pm local time on Sunday.

The suspect was said to have been wielding a blade and an iron bar when he targeted people, with four of the victims suffering “severe wounds” and all seven taken to hospital for treatment.

French broadcaster BFMTV and newspaper Le Parisien reported that one of the Britons was stabbed in the head.

The Foreign Office said it was aware of the reports, but offered no further information.

Citing a judicial source, news agency Reuters said there was “no initial sign” the attack was linked to terrorism.

Quai de la Loire runs alongside the popular Villette Canal Basin and boasts a number of restaurants and cinemas.

The Paris Tourist Board lists it as also having several cafes and libraries, and says it is particularly lively during the summer months.

Les Moonves, Longtime CBS Chief, Steps Down
 

mikenova shared this story .

After working at Lorimar — which produced shows like “Dallas” and “Full House” — Mr. Moonves eventually became the head of Warner Bros. television unit, where he enjoyed one of the most successful runs in TV history. By the time Mr. Moonves left Warner Bros. to lead CBS Entertainment in 1995, he had a record-breaking 22 series on the air, including megahits like “ER” and “Friends.”

At that time, CBS was last in the ratings and catered to an older audience that enjoyed series like “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” and “Touched by an Angel.” Mr. Moonves finally turned things around for good in 2000, when “Survivor” and “C.S.I.” debuted within a few months of each other. “Survivor” would become one of the most successful reality shows in television history, and “C.S.I.” would run for 15 seasons and served as a launching pad for several successful spinoffs. Hit after hit started to appear on CBS, from “NCIS” to “The Big Bang Theory.”

Mr. Moonves has drawn an annual pay package worth $69.3 million. From 2006 to 2017, Mr. Moonves’s total compensation, including salary and stock awards, totaled more than $1 billion, according to Equilar, a research firm that gathers data on executive pay.

Shortly after the first New Yorker article was published, the CBS board enlisted two law firms to lead an inquiry into the claims against Mr. Moonves and the wider workplace culture at the network. The board soon after folded a separate examination of CBS News — underway since March — into the larger investigation.

The board hired Nancy Kestenbaum of Covington & Burling and Mary Jo White of Debevoise & Plimpton to conduct the inquiry. Ms. White led the Securities and Exchange Commission during the Obama administration and was previously the United States attorney for the Southern District of New York. Ms. Kestenbaum was also a federal prosecutor with the same district. The investigation into CBS News is also being overseen by the two law firms.

In addition to the harassment allegations against him, Mr. Moonves was involved in a legal dispute with Ms. Redstone, the controlling shareholder of CBS, who had been pushing for a merger with Viacom, the once-lofty cable network behind MTV and Nickelodeon that she also controls.

The settlement with Mr. Moonves and the CBS board includes delaying for two years any push by Ms. Redstone for a possible merger. The board of CBS, however, could still examine any possible transaction, including a Viacom merger, independently of Ms. Redstone.

The six new members of the board, announced on Sunday, are Candace Beinecke, Barbara Byrne, Brian Goldner, Richard D. Parsons, Susan Schuman and Strauss Zelnick.

Paris Knife Attack Wounds 7 People
 

mikenova shared this story .

PARIS — Seven people were injured by a knife-wielding assailant in Paris on Sunday night, including two British tourists, French news reports said.

The attacker was arrested by the police, and the assault was not initially being treated as terrorism. His motives and identity were not immediately known.

A spokesman for the Paris police prefecture confirmed that several people had been wounded in the 19th Arrondissement, in the northeast of the French capital, but said it was unclear exactly how many people were attacked, or whether the assailant was also hurt. The spokesman declined to comment further.

The assailant, armed with a knife and a metal bar, attacked three people near a cinema on the Quai de la Loire, shortly before 11 p.m., according to the newspaper Le Parisien and the news channel BFM TV.

A group of men playing pétanque nearby tried to stop the attacker — one of them threw his pétanque ball at him — but the assailant continued down a side street and attacked more people, including the British tourists, the reports said.

The police were then able to arrest him.

Mounir Mahjoubi, the junior minister for digital affairs in the French government, who was elected to Parliament last year in the district that includes the 19th Arrondissement, expressed thanks on Twitterfor “the people who intervened against the attacker.”

“Solidarity with the victims and profound gratitude for the firefighters and the emergency services who immediately arrived, and for the police forces who enabled the arrest,” Mr. Mahjoubi said.

The Paris prosecutor’s office, which was handling the case, was not immediately available for comment.

Although Paris was the target of several deadly terrorist attacks in January and November 2015, there have been no large-scale assaults since then.

Instead, there have been sporadic, smaller attacks by lone assailants, some of them seemingly inspired by terrorist groups like the Islamic State. In May, a man born in Chechnya who was on the authorities’ terrorism watch list attacked several people in central Paris with a knife, leaving one dead and 4 wounded.

In his bestselling book, “Der Totale Rausch” (The Total Rush)—recently published in English as “Blitzed”—Ohler found that many in the Nazi regime used drugs regularly, from the soldiers of the Wehrmacht (German armed forces) all the way up to Hitler himself. The use of methamphetamine, better known as crystal meth, was particularly prevalent: A pill form of the drug, Pervitin, was distributed by the millions to Wehrmacht troops before the successful invasion of France in 1940.

Developed by the Temmler pharmaceutical company, based in Berlin, Pervitin was introduced in 1938 and marketed as a magic pill for alertness and an anti-depressive, among other uses. It was briefly even available over the counter. A military doctor, Otto Ranke, experimented with Pervitin on 90 college students and decided, based on his results, that the drug would help Germany win the war. Using Pervitin, the soldiers of the Wehrmacht could stay awake for days at a time and march many more miles without resting.

A so-called “stimulant decree” issued in April 1940 sent more than 35 million tablets of Pervitin and Isophan (a slightly modified version produced by the Knoll pharmaceutical company) of the pills to the front lines, where they fueled the Nazis’ “Blitzkrieg” invasion of France through the Ardennes mountains. It should be noted that Germans were not alone in their use of performance-enhancing drugs during World War II. Allied soldiers were known to use amphetamines (speed) in the form of Benzedrine in order to battle combat fatigue.

When it came to Nazi leaders, Ohler’s research suggested, they all favored their own particular drugs of choice. In an interview with VICE when his book was first published in Germany, Ohler clarified: “Not all of them took every drug. Some more, some less. Some of them were on methamphetamine—for example, Ernst Udet, the Chief of Aircraft Procurement and Supply. Others were on strong anesthetics, like Göring, whose nickname was actually ‘Möring,’ from morphine.”

Ohler, an award-winning novelist and screenwriter, had initially planned to write a novel about the Nazis’ long-rumored drug use. But his plans changed when he found the detailed records left by Dr. Theodor Morell, Hitler’s personal physician. He ended up spending years studying Morell’s records in the Federal Archive in Koblenz, the Institute for Contemporary History in Munich and the National Archives in Washington, D.C., and deciding to focus on fact instead of fiction.

Morell, a shady minor figure in previous biographies and histories of Hitler’s regime, reportedly met the Führer after treating Heinrich Hoffmann, the official Reich photographer. After Morell prescribed a bacteria-based medication that helped Hitler’s intestinal troubles, they began a devoted, mutually dependent relationship that would last for more than nine years. During this time, Morell’s notes show, the doctor injected Hitler almost daily with various drugs, including amphetamines, barbiturates and opiates.

Thanks to his association with Hitler, Morell was able to amass a roster of high-status clients in Nazi Germany; his letterhead proclaimed him as the “Führer’s Personal Physician.” He even acquired a large Czech company (previously Jewish-owned) in order to mass-produce vitamin and hormone remedies using various unsavory animal parts, including bulls’ testicles.

Though Hitler may not have used Pervitin, it would have been one of very few substances he didn’t try. According to Ohler, Morell’s personal notes suggest he gave Hitler some 800 injections over the years, notably including frequent doses of Eukodal, the German brand name for the synthetic opiate oxycodone. Later in the war, when things started to go badly for the Axis, Morell reportedly gave Hitler his first dose of Eukodal before an important meeting with the Italian leader Benito Mussolini, among others, in July 1943. By the spring of 1945, shortly before Hitler committed suicide in his Berlin bunker along with his new wife, Eva Braun (also a patient of Morell’s), Ohler concluded the Führer was likely suffering from withdrawal due to Morell’s inability to find drugs in the devastated city.

Ohler has stressed that his book doesn’t seek to blame the Nazis’ war crimes on their use of drugs. Though his research suggests some of Hitler’s during the war could have related to the drugs he was taking, he points out that the foundations for the horrific Final Solution, for example, were laid out in Hitler’s “Mein Kampf,” and the implementation of related policies began in the 1930s, before the heavy drug use began.

Falangism in Latin America – Wikipedia
 

mikenova shared this story .

Falangism in Latin America has been a feature of political life since the 1930s as movements looked to the national syndicalist clerical fascism of the Spanish state and sought to apply it to other Spanish-speaking countries. From the mid 1930s, the Falange Exterior, effectively an overseas version of the Spanish Falange, was active throughout Latin America in order to drum up support among Hispanic communities.[1]However, the ideas would soon permeate into indigenous political groups. The term “Falangism” should not be applied to the military dictatorships of such figures as Alfredo StroessnerAugusto Pinochet and Rafael Trujillo because while these individuals often enjoyed close relations to Francisco Franco‘s Spain, their military nature and frequent lack of commitment to national syndicalism and the corporate statemean that they should not be classed as Falangist (although individuals within each regime may have been predisposed towards the ideology). The phenomenon can be seen in a number of movements both past and present.

Puerto Rico[edit]

Around the time of the Spanish Civil War, the Falange was heavily active amongst the 8,000 or so Spanish citizens on the island, with an official branch of the Falange organised in San Juan. This group officially disavowed any involvement in local politics, although it was scrutinised closely by the FBIduring the Second World War.[25]

Two very minor Falangist groups have been active in the drive for Puerto Rican independence. The first of these was the Falange Boricua, who have claimed that they were banned on 7 May 2000 after leader Walter Lozano was arrested attempting to blockade U.S. military bases on the island.[26] They have since been refounded as the Movimento Nacional Sindicalista de Puerto Rico.[27]

Teen arrested on murder charge in Auburn shooting

An Opelika teen was arrested Sunday on murder charges in the death of a 20-year-old Tuskegee man stemming from a shooting near Toomer’s Corner earlier in the day, Auburn police said.

The teen, a 17-year-old whose name was not released, was apprehended by Auburn police and members of the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force from an Auburn home. The 17-year-old was arrest on a warrant charging him with murder as an adult. He was taken to the Lee County Jail where he is being held on $150,000 bond, police said.

Four others were injured in the shooting that led to the death of Evan Mikale Wilson, 20, of Tuskegee. Wilson was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Lee County coroner.

Police, who were responding to a nearby call to disperse a loud crowd at around 2:30 a.m. near the shooting on West Magnolia Avenue, located several victims from the shooting. The incident occured down the block from Toomer’s Corner, a popular gathering place after Auburn football games.

Auburn police said the case remains under investigation and “additional charges are possible” in the case.

Three of the four others injured in the shooting — a 17-year-old male, a 19-year-old female, both of Opelika, and a 21-year-old Auburn University student from Hilton Head, S.C. — were taken to East Alabama Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. The fourth victim, a 16-year-old Opelika male, was flown to Piedmont Columbus Regional Medical Center by air ambulance with serious injuries.

Police said an altercation preceded the shooting but there were no further details about the argument.

Anyone with information about the case were urged to call the Auburn Police Division at 334-501-3140 or the tip line at 334-246-1391.

2 Tourists Among 7 Injured, Attacker Nabbed
 

mikenova shared this story .

A group of men playing pétanque, a popular game in France, reportedly tried to stop the attacker, with one of them even throwing the pétanque ball at him. However, the attacker dodged their attempts and went towards the side street and attacked more people, The New York Times said in its report.

According to the police, of the seven injured, four are in a critical condition, The Telegraph reports. Of the two British tourists, one encountered a chest injury while the other was stabbed in the head.

Mounir Mahjoubi, the junior minister for digital affairs in the French government, tweeted out thanking those who tried to stop the attacker, by saying:

Seven wounded in Paris knife rampage as petanque players try to disarm attacker by pelting him with boules
 

mikenova shared this story .

Seven people were wounded in Paris late Sunday by a knife-wielding man, a terrifying attack that bystanders tried to stop by throwing petanque balls at the assailant.

Four of the victims were in a critical condition, police said, after the man brandishing a large blade and and iron bar went on the rampage next to a canal in the northeast of the capital.

The suspect is believed to be an Afghan national and has been arrested, said a source close to the enquiry, adding he had targeted “strangers” but that “nothing at this stage shows signs of a terrorist nature”.

Chaos erupted on the banks of the Bassin de la Villette, an area popular with locals and visitors who frequent the cafes, cinemas and other cultural venues along its banks, just after 11:00pm .

Eyewitness Youssef Najah, 28, said he was walking beside the canal when he saw a man running and holding a knife about 25-30 cm long.

“There were around 20 people chasing him. They started throwing petanque balls at him,” Mr Najah said, referring to the sport popular in France also known as boules.

“Around four or five balls hit him in the head, but they weren’t able to stop him,” he added.

According to the same witness, the attacker then dived into an alleyway, where the man “tried to hide behind two British tourists. We said to them: ‘Watch out, he has a knife”. But they didn’t react”.

The pair were then attacked, he said.

A security guard at one of two cinemas on either side of the water said he had seen the attacker running away from two men who were trying to stop him.

“He had an iron bar in his hand which he threw at the men chasing him, then he took out a knife,” he told AFP.

The UK foreign office said it was aware of reports of the attack and was “urgently investigating this incident” in cooperation with French authorities, British media reported.

A police investigation has been launched for attempted murder, according to a judicial source.

It is the latest of several knife attacks France has seen in recent months, with terrorism being ruled out in most cases.

On August 23, a man stabbed his mother and sister to death and seriously injured another person in a town near Paris before being shot dead by police.

The motive for the violence remained unclear despite a claim by ISIS that it was an attack by one of its fighters responding to the terror organisation’s propaganda.

Authorities said the 36-year-old had serious mental health problems and had been on a terror watch list since 2016.

That attack came days after an Afghan asylum-seeker was arrested in town of Perigueux for a drunken rampage with a knife in which four people were wounded, one seriously.

Police said investigators had “very quickly” dismissed a terrorist motive after the August 13 incident.

And on June 17, two people were hurt in another southern town when a woman shouting “Allahu akbar” (God is greatest) attacked them in a supermarket with a boxcutter knife.

France has been on high alert following a string of jihadist attacks in recent years, often by people who have become radicalised or claim to have acted in the name of ISIS.

More than 240 people have been killed by Islamist extremists since a massacre at the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in Paris in January 2015.

Man arrested after ‘two Britons’ among seven stabbed in Paris knife attack
 

mikenova shared this story .

Two British tourists were among seven people stabbed during a knife attack in downtown Paris, according to local media.

Police have arrested a man in connection with the incident, which happened on the banks of a popular canal in the northeastern district of Quai de la Loire at just after 11pm local time on Sunday.

The suspect was said to have been wielding a blade and an iron bar when he targeted people, with four of the victims suffering “severe wounds” and all seven taken to hospital for treatment.

French broadcaster BFMTV and newspaper Le Parisien reported that one of the Britons was stabbed in the head.

The Foreign Office said it was aware of the reports, but offered no further information.

Citing a judicial source, news agency Reuters said there was “no initial sign” the attack was linked to terrorism.

Quai de la Loire runs alongside the popular Villette Canal Basin and boasts a number of restaurants and cinemas.

The Paris Tourist Board lists it as also having several cafes and libraries, and says it is particularly lively during the summer months.

Les Moonves, Longtime CBS Chief, Steps Down
 

mikenova shared this story .

After working at Lorimar — which produced shows like “Dallas” and “Full House” — Mr. Moonves eventually became the head of Warner Bros. television unit, where he enjoyed one of the most successful runs in TV history. By the time Mr. Moonves left Warner Bros. to lead CBS Entertainment in 1995, he had a record-breaking 22 series on the air, including megahits like “ER” and “Friends.”

At that time, CBS was last in the ratings and catered to an older audience that enjoyed series like “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” and “Touched by an Angel.” Mr. Moonves finally turned things around for good in 2000, when “Survivor” and “C.S.I.” debuted within a few months of each other. “Survivor” would become one of the most successful reality shows in television history, and “C.S.I.” would run for 15 seasons and served as a launching pad for several successful spinoffs. Hit after hit started to appear on CBS, from “NCIS” to “The Big Bang Theory.”

Mr. Moonves has drawn an annual pay package worth $69.3 million. From 2006 to 2017, Mr. Moonves’s total compensation, including salary and stock awards, totaled more than $1 billion, according to Equilar, a research firm that gathers data on executive pay.

Shortly after the first New Yorker article was published, the CBS board enlisted two law firms to lead an inquiry into the claims against Mr. Moonves and the wider workplace culture at the network. The board soon after folded a separate examination of CBS News — underway since March — into the larger investigation.

The board hired Nancy Kestenbaum of Covington & Burling and Mary Jo White of Debevoise & Plimpton to conduct the inquiry. Ms. White led the Securities and Exchange Commission during the Obama administration and was previously the United States attorney for the Southern District of New York. Ms. Kestenbaum was also a federal prosecutor with the same district. The investigation into CBS News is also being overseen by the two law firms.

In addition to the harassment allegations against him, Mr. Moonves was involved in a legal dispute with Ms. Redstone, the controlling shareholder of CBS, who had been pushing for a merger with Viacom, the once-lofty cable network behind MTV and Nickelodeon that she also controls.

The settlement with Mr. Moonves and the CBS board includes delaying for two years any push by Ms. Redstone for a possible merger. The board of CBS, however, could still examine any possible transaction, including a Viacom merger, independently of Ms. Redstone.

The six new members of the board, announced on Sunday, are Candace Beinecke, Barbara Byrne, Brian Goldner, Richard D. Parsons, Susan Schuman and Strauss Zelnick.

Paris Knife Attack Wounds 7 People
 

mikenova shared this story .

PARIS — Seven people were injured by a knife-wielding assailant in Paris on Sunday night, including two British tourists, French news reports said.

The attacker was arrested by the police, and the assault was not initially being treated as terrorism. His motives and identity were not immediately known.

A spokesman for the Paris police prefecture confirmed that several people had been wounded in the 19th Arrondissement, in the northeast of the French capital, but said it was unclear exactly how many people were attacked, or whether the assailant was also hurt. The spokesman declined to comment further.

The assailant, armed with a knife and a metal bar, attacked three people near a cinema on the Quai de la Loire, shortly before 11 p.m., according to the newspaper Le Parisien and the news channel BFM TV.

A group of men playing pétanque nearby tried to stop the attacker — one of them threw his pétanque ball at him — but the assailant continued down a side street and attacked more people, including the British tourists, the reports said.

The police were then able to arrest him.

Mounir Mahjoubi, the junior minister for digital affairs in the French government, who was elected to Parliament last year in the district that includes the 19th Arrondissement, expressed thanks on Twitterfor “the people who intervened against the attacker.”

“Solidarity with the victims and profound gratitude for the firefighters and the emergency services who immediately arrived, and for the police forces who enabled the arrest,” Mr. Mahjoubi said.

The Paris prosecutor’s office, which was handling the case, was not immediately available for comment.

Although Paris was the target of several deadly terrorist attacks in January and November 2015, there have been no large-scale assaults since then.

Instead, there have been sporadic, smaller attacks by lone assailants, some of them seemingly inspired by terrorist groups like the Islamic State. In May, a man born in Chechnya who was on the authorities’ terrorism watch list attacked several people in central Paris with a knife, leaving one dead and 4 wounded.

In his bestselling book, “Der Totale Rausch” (The Total Rush)—recently published in English as “Blitzed”—Ohler found that many in the Nazi regime used drugs regularly, from the soldiers of the Wehrmacht (German armed forces) all the way up to Hitler himself. The use of methamphetamine, better known as crystal meth, was particularly prevalent: A pill form of the drug, Pervitin, was distributed by the millions to Wehrmacht troops before the successful invasion of France in 1940.

Developed by the Temmler pharmaceutical company, based in Berlin, Pervitin was introduced in 1938 and marketed as a magic pill for alertness and an anti-depressive, among other uses. It was briefly even available over the counter. A military doctor, Otto Ranke, experimented with Pervitin on 90 college students and decided, based on his results, that the drug would help Germany win the war. Using Pervitin, the soldiers of the Wehrmacht could stay awake for days at a time and march many more miles without resting.

A so-called “stimulant decree” issued in April 1940 sent more than 35 million tablets of Pervitin and Isophan (a slightly modified version produced by the Knoll pharmaceutical company) of the pills to the front lines, where they fueled the Nazis’ “Blitzkrieg” invasion of France through the Ardennes mountains. It should be noted that Germans were not alone in their use of performance-enhancing drugs during World War II. Allied soldiers were known to use amphetamines (speed) in the form of Benzedrine in order to battle combat fatigue.

When it came to Nazi leaders, Ohler’s research suggested, they all favored their own particular drugs of choice. In an interview with VICE when his book was first published in Germany, Ohler clarified: “Not all of them took every drug. Some more, some less. Some of them were on methamphetamine—for example, Ernst Udet, the Chief of Aircraft Procurement and Supply. Others were on strong anesthetics, like Göring, whose nickname was actually ‘Möring,’ from morphine.”

Ohler, an award-winning novelist and screenwriter, had initially planned to write a novel about the Nazis’ long-rumored drug use. But his plans changed when he found the detailed records left by Dr. Theodor Morell, Hitler’s personal physician. He ended up spending years studying Morell’s records in the Federal Archive in Koblenz, the Institute for Contemporary History in Munich and the National Archives in Washington, D.C., and deciding to focus on fact instead of fiction.

Morell, a shady minor figure in previous biographies and histories of Hitler’s regime, reportedly met the Führer after treating Heinrich Hoffmann, the official Reich photographer. After Morell prescribed a bacteria-based medication that helped Hitler’s intestinal troubles, they began a devoted, mutually dependent relationship that would last for more than nine years. During this time, Morell’s notes show, the doctor injected Hitler almost daily with various drugs, including amphetamines, barbiturates and opiates.

Thanks to his association with Hitler, Morell was able to amass a roster of high-status clients in Nazi Germany; his letterhead proclaimed him as the “Führer’s Personal Physician.” He even acquired a large Czech company (previously Jewish-owned) in order to mass-produce vitamin and hormone remedies using various unsavory animal parts, including bulls’ testicles.

Though Hitler may not have used Pervitin, it would have been one of very few substances he didn’t try. According to Ohler, Morell’s personal notes suggest he gave Hitler some 800 injections over the years, notably including frequent doses of Eukodal, the German brand name for the synthetic opiate oxycodone. Later in the war, when things started to go badly for the Axis, Morell reportedly gave Hitler his first dose of Eukodal before an important meeting with the Italian leader Benito Mussolini, among others, in July 1943. By the spring of 1945, shortly before Hitler committed suicide in his Berlin bunker along with his new wife, Eva Braun (also a patient of Morell’s), Ohler concluded the Führer was likely suffering from withdrawal due to Morell’s inability to find drugs in the devastated city.

Ohler has stressed that his book doesn’t seek to blame the Nazis’ war crimes on their use of drugs. Though his research suggests some of Hitler’s during the war could have related to the drugs he was taking, he points out that the foundations for the horrific Final Solution, for example, were laid out in Hitler’s “Mein Kampf,” and the implementation of related policies began in the 1930s, before the heavy drug use began.

The Treaty of Versailles (FrenchTraité de Versailles) was the most important of the peace treaties that brought World War Ito an end. The Treaty ended the state of war between Germanyand the Allied Powers. It was signed on 28 June 1919 in Versailles, exactly five years after the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand which directly led to World War I. The other Central Powers on the German side of World War I signed separate treaties.[6] Although the armistice, signed on 11 November 1918, ended the actual fighting, it took six months of Allied negotiations at the Paris Peace Conference to conclude the peace treaty. The treaty was registered by the Secretariat of the League of Nations on 21 October 1919.

Germany’s dangerous flirtation with nuclear weapons
 

mikenova shared this story from ATOM Feed.

Berlin may be toying with the idea of embracing its nuclear ambitions, but doing so would jeopardize the delicate balance of power in Europe, writes a security policy expert.

Published on

As in a game of chess, there are geopolitical moves through which a country can – unwittingly – checkmate itself. Opening a debate on German nuclear weapons would be such a move. Yet this is exactly what some Germans have recently proposed. Supporters of a nuclear-armed Germany contend that NATO’s nuclear umbrella has lost all credibility because of statements made by US President Donald Trump.

There are at least three good reasons why considering a nuclear option would be foolhardy for Germany. For starters, Germany has repeatedly renounced it, first in 1969 by signing (and later ratifying) the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), and then in 1990 by signing the so-called Two Plus Four Treaty, which paved the way for German reunification.

Casting doubt on these commitments would severely damage Germany’s reputation and reliability worldwide. Germany would call into question the credibility of NATO’s nuclear deterrence, and thus the alliance itself, along with the entire nuclear non-proliferation regime.

It is worth noting that since its creation in 1949, NATO has been one of the world’s most successful instruments of proliferation prevention. Not a single NATO member state – apart from the United States, the United Kingdom, and France – has found it necessary to acquire nuclear weapons of its own.

Risk of domino effect

If Germany were now to break out of its non-nuclear power status, what would keep Turkey or Poland, for instance, from following suit? Germany as a gravedigger of the international non-proliferation regime – who could want that?

Second, a German nuclear bomb would damage the strategic environment in Europe – to Germany’s disadvantage. Russia would interpret German steps toward a nuclear arsenal as a direct threat to its own national security and would likely adopt military countermeasures. That, in turn, would make it even harder to pursue the vision of a pan-European order of peace and security, a core foreign-policy goal of all German governments since that of Konrad Adenauer. Moreover, a German nuclear ambition might jeopardize the delicate balance of power in Europe – including between Germany and France, for example – with incalculable consequences for the long-term cohesion of the European Union.

Finally, it is not hard to predict that the pursuit of nuclear weapons would draw significant public opposition, especially given that such a move would be a complete about-face for German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government, which, just a few years ago, moved to phase out nuclear energyaltogether. It is difficult to imagine a greater fiasco for German foreign and security policy than proposing a nuclear strategy and then failing to obtain parliamentary approval.

Sensible alternatives

There are smarter long-term ways to bolster Europe’s nuclear defense than introducing a German bomb. For example, France might be willing to consider playing an extended nuclear-deterrence role, along with the roles of the US and the United Kingdom within NATO. While this would require a fundamental reorientation and Europeanization of France’s nuclear strategy, Germany and other European partners could offer financial contributions to such an initiative, in the context of a future European defense union with a nuclear component. But these are, at best, long-term options.

In short, no matter what Trump says, Germany will remain dependent on the US nuclear umbrella for the foreseeable future.

The best way to maintain NATO’s credibility and be taken seriously by the US is to work seriously toward the alliance’s 2%-of-GDP target for defense spending and to invest more heavily in conventional military capabilities. not to satisfy US demands, but to protect our own security and defense interests. But this is not simply about spending more; it is about spending more intelligently, particularly by pooling and sharing capabilities, and by systematic joint procurement with France and other European partners, including through the recently established EU Defense Fund.

None of this will work if Germany will not start defining military strategy, security, and defense as top political priorities. Only then will the Bundestag be able to give the Bundeswehr – often referred to as a “parliamentary army” – what it needs to do its job. The alternative – considering the development of nuclear weapons – would be a game-losing move.

Character assassination – Wikipedia
 

mikenova shared this story .

Character assassination is a deliberate and sustained process that destroys the credibility and reputation of a person, institution, organization, social group, or nation.[1] Agents of character assassinations employ a mix of open and covert methods to achieve their goals, such as raising false accusations, planting and fostering rumours, and manipulating information.

Character assassination is an attempt to tarnish a person’s reputation. It may involve exaggeration, misleading half-truths, or manipulation of facts to present an untrue picture of the targeted person. It is a form of defamation and can be a form of ad hominem argument.

For living individuals targeted by character assassination attempts, this may result in being rejected by their communityfamily, or members of their living or work environment. Such acts are often difficult to reverse or rectify, and the process is likened to a literal assassination of a human life. The damage sustained can last a lifetime or, for historical figures, for many centuries after their death.

The phrase “character assassination” became popular from around 1930.[2] One of the first mentions of the phrasing in literature is dated 1950 in the collection of essays by Jerome Davis.[3]

General[edit]

In practice, character assassination may involve doublespeak, spreading of rumoursinnuendo or deliberate misinformation on topics relating to the subject’s morals, integrity, and reputation. It may involve spinning information that is technically true, but that is presented in a misleading manner or is presented without the necessary context. For example, it might be said that a person refused to pay any income tax during a specific year, without saying that no tax was actually owed due to the person having no income that year, or that a person was sacked from a firm, even though he may have been made redundant through no fault of his own, rather than being terminated for cause.

Others define character assassination as the deliberate destruction of an individual’s reputation, which does not include social groups or institutions. It is important to distinguish between character attacks and character assassination. Character attacks are assaults aimed at a particular individual—as opposed to attacks aimed at certain groups, movements, or nationalities, such as happen in the construction of enemy images.[4] If they succeed in destroying their victim’s reputation, we speak of successful attacks and character assassination. However, attacks can also fail.

Three features of character attacks are important to understand.[4] First, their intention: character attacks are by definition deliberate. Second, the public nature of the attacks: private insults do not lead to reputation damage. And third, the importance of the public perception of the attacks, which means that the truth of allegations is irrelevant.

Narcissism[edit]

According to Thomas, character assassination is an intentional attempt, usually by a narcissist and/or his or her codependents, to influence the portrayal or reputation of someone in such a way as to cause others to develop an extremely negative or unappealing perception of him or her. It typically involves deliberate exaggeration or manipulation of facts, the spreading of rumours and deliberate misinformation to present an untrue picture of the targeted person, and unwarranted and excessive criticism.[5]

Psychopathy in the workplace[edit]

The authors of the book Snakes in Suits: When Psychopaths Go to Work describe a five phase model of how a typical workplace psychopath climbs to and maintains power. In phase four (confrontation), the psychopath will use techniques of character assassination to maintain their agenda.[6]

In politics[edit]

In politics, character assassination is a form of negative campaigningOpposition research is the practice of collecting information on someone that can be used to discredit them. A smear campaign is the use of falsehoods or distortions. Scandalmongering can be used to associate a person with a negative event in a false or exaggerated way.

Perhaps the most common form of character assassination is the spread of allegations that a candidate is a liar. Other common themes may include allegations that the candidate is a bad or unpopular member of his family, has a bad relationship with his spouse or children or is not respected by his colleagues. Another theme claims that the person routinely engages in disturbing, socially unacceptable behavior, such as sexual deviancy. The person may also be portrayed as holding beliefs widely considered despicable within society, such as supporting racism or other forms of bigotry.

Charging an opponent with character assassination may have political benefits. In the hearings for Clarence Thomas’ nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States, supporters claimed that both Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill were victims of character assassination.[7]

The International Society for the Study of Character Assassination (ISSCA) specialises in the academic study and research of how character attacks and assassinations have been executed in both history and during contemporary times.[8]

Character attacks come in three categories. The first is attacks between equals. These often happen in democracies, especially during elections. The second is top-down attacks, or authoritarian regimes cracking down on individuals.[4] Examples include:

  • Luther slandered by the Catholic Church during the Reformation
  • The Gao-Rao affair (zh) in Communist China
  • Vaclav Havel slandered in Communist Czechoslovakia

The third is bottom-up attacks, or individuals attacking authoritarian leaders. Examples include:

  • Procopius slandering Emperor Justinian in the Secret History
  • Protestant reformers slandering the Pope in the 1500s
  • Dutch rebels slandering the Duke of Alba during the Dutch Revolt
  • The resistance slandering Hitler in Nazi-occupied Europe

In a totalitarian regime[edit]

The effect of a character assassination driven by an individual is not equal to that of a state-driven campaign. The state-sponsored destruction of reputations, fostered by political propaganda and cultural mechanisms, can have more far-reaching consequences. One of the earliest signs of a society’s compliance to loosening the reins on the perpetration of crimes (and even massacres) with total impunity is when a government favors or directly encourages a campaign aimed at destroying the dignity and reputation of its adversaries, and the public accepts its allegations without question. The mobilisation toward ruining the reputation of adversaries is the prelude to the mobilisation of violence in order to annihilate them. Generally, official dehumanisation has preceded the physical assault of the victims.[1]

The International Society for the Study of Character Assassination[edit]

In July 2011, scholars from nine countries gathered at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, to debate “the art of smear and defamation in history and today”.[9] They formed a group to study character assassination throughout the ages. The group included historians, political scientists, and political psychologists.[10]

Jupiter and Rambo – The American Interest
 

mikenova shared this story from Comments on: Jupiter and Rambo.

Most Americans have not heard the name Benalla, and if they have, they haven’t a clue why it should concern them. How could they? The White House is a region of spacetime exerting such a strong pull on our attention that no one can escape; a scandal in France that sounds inscrutable and insignificant will not be the exception to the rule, even if it is neither.

The manifest content of this scandal, as thus far reported in the highbrow press, is indeed a scandal. But as French scandals go, it is a tremblor on the French Presidential Scandal scale. The latent content is what matters—and it matters because of the larger geopolitical context.

France will soon be the only nuclear power in the European Union. The U.S. commitment to Article V of the NATO treaty is widely in doubt. Macron’s lucky streak has allowed some in Europe to envision the germ of a solution to the massive security and economic dilemmas it confronts: an intimate Franco-German economic and security entente, one that would use Germany’s wealth and France’s military to forge a stable, liberal, and democratic power center at the heart of Europe.

Given this context, it is hard to understand why the French would allow themselves to become consumed by a scandal that on its face is a scandal, yes, but no earth-shattering one. Nonetheless, Macron’s popularity has plummeted. Since Le Monde broke the story on July 18, he has tumbled in the polls by some ten percentage points, leaving a number of observers reaching for elaborate explanations: “The Benalla Affair,” writes Alexandra Schwartz in the New Yorker, “is not about Alexandre Benalla. It is about the French President, and the brash, self-confident manner with which he has blasted through his first year in office.” The story runs the “Culture Desk” section, which is usually reserved for “conversations about movies, television, theatre, music, and other cultural events.”

Not about Benalla? Perhaps it is true that had Macron not been so brash and self-confident, no one in France would have found the news that his intimate friend and adviser likes to dress up like one of the Village People and beat the snot out of anyone in his path especially notable. But this seems a tortured explanation.

The affair takes place against a restive backdrop. On May Day 2018, a year after Macron’s election and half a century after May ’68, the unions took to the street to protest Macron’s economic reforms. These included loosening France’s growth-strangling labor regulations, so rigid that desperate companies with an incompetent employee were known to hire a second one without firing the incompetent one, for it would be so expensive, time-consuming, and bureaucratically arduous to get rid the incompetent that it was easier to keep him on the payroll.

In September last year, Macron pushed through a package of labor law reforms, then turned his attention to the debt-ridden state railways.His proposal to end the guarantee of jobs for life—not, note, for those already employed, but for new recruits—prompted crippling, rolling strikes meant to galvanize France with the rejuvenating spirit of ’68. In reality the strikes just irritated the hell out of us, so much so that, for once, people on the street told me, “I’ve had it with these spoiled little shits. Just fire them all.”

You may remember “May Day in Paris Marred by Violence” headlines, accompanied by the clichéd stock photo of a burning car in Paris. The malefactors were the Black Bloc, a kin to Antifa. Some 1,200 Black Bloc thugs infiltrated an otherwise peaceful march of leftists and trade unionists and went wilding, throwing Molotov Cocktails, smashing windows, torching cars, ransacking shops, brandishing Soviet flags (seriously), tearing up pavement stones, and desecrating the holy symbol of capitalism (a McDonald’s). This happened near the Gare d’Austerlitz, in central southeast Paris. The news made it sound more dramatic than it was: I live about ten blocks away but had no idea it was happening until I received e-mails from concerned Americans telling me to flee for my life.

That evening, another scrap broke out at the Place de la Contrescarpe, which guidebooks describe as “a small, intimate, and pleasantly shaded square, lined by lively cafés, one of the most attractive in Paris.” The cops were in a crappy mood after dealing with 1,200 ravening anarchists, and another passel of drunken reds was the last thing they wanted to see. But with one notable exception, the cops were perfectly professional, if, obviously, not a bit in the mood.

Here is the video, recorded on May 1, that started it all.1 Look for the cop in the helmet who’s not like the others. He’s incompetent. He’s untrained. He’s neither in control of himself nor the suspect. He smashes him in the head in a way no professional ever would. You could give someone a concussion or brain damage that way. You could even hurt your hand. The video was released immediately, but only became a national scandal when the public learned that the cop in question was not a cop. He was 26-year-old Alexandre Benalla, a swarthy young man from the other side of the tracks, impersonating a police officer.

And who exactly is Benalla? On July 18, Le Monde identified him, triggering the firestorm. He is a man who has had seemingly unlimited access to the President of the Republic of France. But he shouldn’t have.

Other amateur videos of the May 1 incident have since surfaced. By now everyone in France has seen Benalla mashing his fist into a protestor and stomping on his stomach; they have watched him wrestle to the ground and drag off an unarmed woman; they have seen him flee the scene. We have seen the assault from every angle, in slow motion, captioned, illustrated with arrows and diagrams, or playing on a loop, in the background, as excited television presenters narrate the blow-by-blow.

We have since learned, too, that Benalla was granted gifts and favors exceedingly unsuited to his official role. And what was that role? It changes by the day, but in press accounts he has been described variously as “bodyguard,” “the President’s close collaborator,” “deputy chief of staff,” “assistant director of the cabinet of the President of the Republic,” “top aide,” and “adviser to the President.” One thing is perfectly clear: Nothing could keep them apart. France has seen photo after photo of Macron and Benalla skiing together in the Pyrénées and cycling in matching pastels at the seaside. Benalla had the keys to the presidential couple’s home. He was installed in a sumptuous apartment on the Quai Branly with a certain historic significance—it once housed President Mitterrand’s illegitimate family—and paid a salary grossly disproportionate to his role, whatever it was. He was given an official vehicle, with flashing lights and sirens, which perhaps a bodyguard might need, yes, but why then was he also given a chauffeur? He had no training as a bodyguard, but under Macron’s employ, in what Libérationtermed “the fastest promotion in French military history,” this retired former grunt in the gendarmerie became a five-bar lieutenant colonel with “expert” status. He had free range of the National Assembly, a diplomatic passport, and a security clearance.

This would all have escaped widespread notice if the far Left had not tipped off Le Monde. Note, though, that someone had to know Benalla was not who he appeared to be to grasp that the video would cripple President Emmanuel Macron’s presidency.

Benalla’s nickname was “Rambo.” His intimates say he has hot blood, or sang chaud, the opposite of the quality usually ascribed to heroic Frenchmensangfroid. He was granted a license to carry, even though his earlier applications had repeatedly been denied by the Interior Ministry; police officers considered his dossier “dubious.” Sources tell journalists that the Elysée would have had to intervene directly to overrule that judgement.

He had been offering his services as a bodyguard to Socialist Party luminaries since 2008, but in 2012, only days into a new job as Arnaud Montebourg’s chauffeur, he was fired “with utmost force, for severe misconduct,” as Montebourg told Le Monde. “He caused a car accident, in my presence, and sought to flee the scene.” In 2015, a woman filed a complaint with the police accusing Benalla of “willingly and violently” assaulting her so seriously that she couldn’t work for more than eight days. In March 2016, shortly before Benalla entered Macron’s employ, these charges were dismissed. Unusually, no legal explanation for the verdict was offered.

Directly before the 2017 election, hackers broke into Macron’s campaign and dumped a massive trove of documents onto the internet. No one paid them much mind, assuming the Russians had mingled with the real documents so many fake and scurrilous ones that none could be trusted. The documents about Benalla, however, appear to have been real: They note his fondness for riot shields and non-lethal weapons. It does seem he had quite the collection: When he wanted to play policeman, he had all the gear—the helmet, the armband, the walkie-talkie. But how could he have assumed he would get away with that in the era of the smartphone? Impersonating a police officer is, needless to say, illegal as hell. Clearly, he felt he was immune—and indeed, members of police unions have since testified under oath that Benalla “terrified” them, that he felt free to curse and threaten with impunity high-ranking officers of the police and gendarmerie.

The police had their reasons. In this video, shot in March 2017 and published by Public Sénat the day after after Le Monde identified Benalla as the rogue cop, we see Benalla manhandling a journalist, then stealing his badge. The incident was “so serious and so incomprehensible,” Public Sénat reported, “that the director of the channel sent a letter to then-candidate Macron’s team, noting that there was no threat whatsoever to the candidate and protesting this arbitrary interference with the press in in its normal duties.” It was a warning, Public Sénat wrote, “that should have been heeded, and should have prevented Benalla from following Macron into the Elysée Palace.”

We learned from sworn testimony before the French parliament that the President and the Interior Ministry had been aware of the incident as soon as it happened. Neither alerted the public prosecutor, as required by law, nor did they do so until the story was on the front page of every newspaper in France. Instead, they suspended Benalla without salary for 15 days, but for a “technical reason” he received his salary anyway and immediately reappeared, accompanying the President as if he had not been suspended at all. They knew Benalla had done something psychopathic on May Day, but not one of the people officially responsible for ensuring the security of the President insisted that his access to him be cut off.

The cover-up has been clumsier than the crime. After the story broke, no one could get the alibi straight. Neither Interior Minister Gérard Collomb nor the Paris Prefect of Police Michel Delpuech were willing to take the fall; both pointed the finger at Macron. On July 23, Delpuech contradicted the Elysée’s declarations that the police had authorized Benalla to attend the demonstration.

All of this is scandalous, yes. The corruption, the favoritism, and the carelessness with state security warrant stern condemnation. But none of it merits the unrelenting fever it has generated in France. It does not warrant the obsession, and it can be described no other way.

Why? As French scandals go, writes Arthur Goldhammer, “nothing here rises to the level of past presidential misdeeds.” He recalls the barbouzes of de Gaulle’s Service d’Action Civique, the Greenpeace Affair, Mitterrand’s private eavesdroppers. “These were affairs of state. Benalla is a choirboy by comparison.”

Benalla has since been indicted for assault, impersonating a police officer, gang violence, interference in public service, illegally wearing a police badge, and conspiracy to abuse police surveillance footage. The three high-ranking police officers who allegedly gave Benalla the footage of the incident have been indicted for misappropriating the images and violating professional secrecy. The judiciary is conducting an investigation into “cronyism.” Five have so far been indicted. The National Police and the Inspector General are conducting simultaneous administrative investigations.

Macron has taken responsibility. The buck stops with him, he says. He has assured us that Benalla was never given the nuclear codes. He has assured us, too, that Benalla has never been his lover. So that, at least, is settled.

So why, then, isn’t it settled? Why did the leaked video first force Macron into hiding—he went silent for days, completely aberrant for the normally voluble Jupiter—and why, when at last he emerged, did he stand before the flashing lightbulbs and say, “Benalla has never been my lover?” Any competent brand manager would tell you those are not the words to utter if you aim never to associate in the public mind the words “Macron,” “Benalla,” and “lover.”

Because, of course, everyone suspects Benalla is his lover. It takes quite a conspiracy theory to account for this any other way, doesn’t it? But that is not the heart of the matter. France isn’t anti-homosexual in the Russian manner. Marine Le Pen, for example, surrounds herself with gay advisers and insists that, far from being homophobic, her animosity to Islamic immigration stems from her homophilia. Homosexuality in France is now at best mildly transgressive. Few would have thought the worse of Macron had he come out of the closet. His taste for men was rumored before the election, and since nearly everyone had heard about it, not much of a secret.

Macron might have been better off saying, “Yes, he’s my lover, and it’s none of your business.” That’s an answer France might have understood. It is the reflex response here to any question about a public figure’s private life. An American (in all innocence, presumably) once asked Quora whether Macron was ga
