War in the Middle East…
A strategic survey of possibilities, winners, losers…
Israel Plans War in February 2018
by Robert David Steele
We now know that Benjamin Netanyahu believes he can command the votes in the US Congress to declare war and demand that our Secretary of Defense James Mattis introduce US forces including troops on the group in support of an Israeli and Saudi Arabian war on Iran, Lebanon, and Syria in early 2018. Some among my Trump-era friends of the President believe this is why the sealed indictments and various other activities are being rushed as we enter the holiday period: the objective is to gut the Deep State – the Deep State rooted in Zionist bribery and blackmail – before February 2018, in time to prevent a US Congress captive to the Zionists from declaring war on the basis of lies – much as the 935 lies told after 9/11 led to war on Iraq.
Iran Is Not the Enemy
It is obvious to everyone that Israel and Goldman Sachs want war in the Middle East – Israel to continue its long-held strategic focus on Balkanizing and impoverishing all other countries – a divide and conquer at any cost strategy – Goldman Sachs because it made bad bets on the future of oil and a broad war in the Middle East is the only way of pushing oil from $57 to $100 and perhaps even – if it is a nuclear war — $200 and even – by some accounts, $300.
Not so obvious is what I believe to be a side deal between President Donald Trump, President Vladimir Putin, and General Secretary Xi Jinping, re-affirmed in Viet-Nam this week, to wage peace. Benjamin Fulford has written about this recently with a sufficiency of inside sources. The three “bosses” are not going to let the Deep State or their entrenched bureaucracies take us to war in Asia, the Middle East, or anywhere else.
Phil Giraldi,” is absolutely right when he observes that Israel knows it cannot defeat Iran without full US engagement, and he is also absolutely right when he points out the obsession of many older Marines with the idea that it was Iran that was behind the truck bomb that leveled the Marine Barracks in Beirut, killing 241 Americans (220 of them Marines) and ending the career of a colleague of mine, then Colonel Tim Geraghty, USMC.
I am one of perhaps five people who have actually read every word of the complete classified (Top Secret / Sensitive Compartment Information) Long Commission Report, and the bottom line is clear: not only is evidence lacking that Iran was behind the truck bomb – the US intelligence community is on record that it’s “judgements” are not based on evidence and fact per se – but my reading of the report suggests that the White House mis-managed every aspect of our engagement in Lebanon and killed those Marines as surely as if it had driven the truck bomb itself. From turning Marines into combatants to mandating rules of engagement that prevented proper perimeter protection of the barracks (a logical alternative to tents because of all the shrapnel flying around at night) and stand-off engagement of approaching vehicles, it was the White House, not Iran and not Tim Geraghty, that is culpable for those deaths.
While Iran is an obvious candidate if one seeks to blame the Beirut Barracks bombing on a “state-sponsor” of terrorism, it is not possible for any serious person to avoid the conclusion that the United States of America (USA) has been the primary sponsor of elective wars and other crimes against humanity (in the past decade adding drone assassinations with a 98% collateral damage ratio) – it is myopic, hypocritical, and counter-productive to evaluate the Middle East without, as Sun Tzu would say, “knowing oneself”  or to see that asymmetric warfare – including truck bombs – is a “proportionate response” to US-funded Israeli and Saudi Arabian terrorism across the region including the active participation of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Pentagon in arming, training, and supplying the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq (ISIS).
I will not get into the minutia of a long-running campaign by senior flag officers to set Iran up by staging a false flag attack in the Gulf of Hormuz with an alleged missile into an aging destroyer placed there for the purpose of being hit. Suffice to say that President Barack Obama, for all his flaws, was well within his constitutional rights in relieving a number of flag officers, including General Jim Mattis and the Navy Admiral who cooked up the scheme in the first place. I don’t think Jim Mattis is out-of-control today – but he might still be mis-guided on the subject of Iran. I am quite certain that Donald Trump now has a “by name” list of every flag officer and every senior executive officer in the Departments of Defense and State who are considered “fellow travelers” by the Zionists. There appear to be over 850 sealed indictments across the USA – I speculate that a most salutary purge is coming soon, and those that are not purged are now or soon will be neutralized.
The Looming End of Zionist Influence in the USA
Zionists rule in the USA is being challenged openly now. There is a fury sweeping across the USA against the Zionists, neutralizing what was once a formidable lobbying force – so formidable it could reasonably be described as an “occupation Army” camped in Washington DC and controlling the banks of New York City as well as the media and entertainment (propaganda) organizations that front for the Deep State.
Israel now has no fewer than five strikes (in baseball it takes three to get thrown out, my estimate is that it will take seven to completely end the influence of Israel in the USA, an event that will be noted when the B’Nai Brith, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) are all required to register as agents of a foreign power: Zionist Israel.
Strike 1: USS Liberty. As a naval officer, I blame the White House for both the Beirut Barracks bombing, and the cover-up of the USS Liberty. If ever there were a clearer sign of how Israel thinks it can screw its “shiksa” ally with impunity, it was the USS Liberty.
Strike 2: 9/11. It has taken too long, but part of the narrative that will emerge in the near future is the culpability of Israel and its assigns including the Bush Family and Dick Cheney. [If and when all of the Kennedy documents are released by CIA, George Bush Senior will be revealed as a key CIA participant in the assassination planned and led by Allen Dulles.]
Strike 3: S. 720 – Israel Anti-Boycott Act, legislation that would make it a felony to criticize Israel and call for a boycott of Israel. I predict that every Senator and Representative co-sponsoring this bill, which will not pass, will be seriously challenged for re-election in the future.
Strike 4: State and local disaster relief and contracts continent on Israel pledge and state employees can be fired for any personal boycott of Israel. No one can receive disaster relief or a contract with multiple US state and local organizations unless they affirm in writing that they will never boycott Israel. State employees are now being fired for boycotting products and services from Israel on their own time with their own money.
Strike 5: Las Vegas. From Sheldon Adelson to Michael Chertoff to George Soros and others, the treason and fraud related to Las Vegas, in combination with the harvesting of the National Security Agency (NSA) unprocessed data that William Binney and I showed Attorney General Jeff Sessions how to harvest in our letter of 26 May 2017, could accelerate the neutralization of all agents of foreign powers in the USA, starting with the Zionist lobbying machine.
Harvey Weinstein, the first major Jewish pedophile to fall – Jeffrey Epstein in my view is a Mossad officer under CIA protection just doing his job – is a pass. The number of sealed indictments is at 857 as of today, and I estimate that fewer than 20% of the elite pedophiles and traitors we take down will be definably Zionist. What is unique about the Zionist “system” is its pervasiveness and singular focus.
I have no doubt that in 2018 Israel is going to get Strike 6 and Strike 7 and Chuck Schumer, among others, will be lucky to escape into retirement, perhaps at a heavily guarded kibbutz with a mink-lined bunker paid for by the US taxpayer.
The Strategic Situation
There are in my view some fundamentals in the Middle East beyond Israel and Saudi Arabia:
First, like it or not the Ottoman Empire is back. The Turks still have to deal with presidential-level corruption and ignorance, but on balance Turkey remains the gateway to Europe both East and West. As the Americans withdraw, it will, along with Russia, be an arbiter. The Byzantine Empire, perhaps a better phrase for what is emergent, and the Eastern Orthodox Church that has not been as corrupt as the Vatican and its Satanic pedophilic Jesuit bankers, are going to be major strategic players going forward.
Second, the Persian Empire that once stretched from Arabia into Central Asia, with Herat in Afghanistan as the capital of that Empire, is here to stay. In part because of its rigorous repression of corruption and its brilliant engineering, Iran is not only the adult in the region and the only truly sustainable country as well, it is also now recognized as one of eight world powers.
Third, while there are purportedly more Sunnis than there are Shi’ites, and at first glance one might tend to give the Sunnis the demographic advantage, from where I sit the Shi’ites have a mix of locational, moral, and intellectual as well as technological advantages that make them co-equal to the Sunnis in strategic terms. It is also well-known that many Sunnis across Africa and Central Asia are “rice-bowl” Sunnis, bribed by the Saudis much as Christian missionaries sought Chinese and Southern Hemisphere converts through hand-outs. Indonesia and India, where Sunnis are in a majority, do not appear to suffer from the “weaponization” of Sunnism that Saudi Arabia has pursued in Arabia, Africa, and Central Asia.
Fourth, Kurdistan is here to stay. I pray the Kurds recognize in time that Israel, like the USA, is not to be trusted and they are pawns to the Israelis, never partners. The Kurds impress me as much as the Iranians do. Kurdistan is a de facto nation-state, and the sooner Turkey gets a grip on this reality, the sooner Turkey can be the primary route to the sea for the Kurds and their oil, and the primary supplier to the Kurds of everything else. Turkish profit from peace with the Kurds cannot be over-stated – if Iran and Iraq agree to cede portions of their territory to Kurdistan, the benefits to Turkey of conceding a similar grant of territory would appear considerable.
Fifth, Palestine – and Jerusalem – demand a regional solution. This is not something the United Nations (UN) – the most pathologically dysfunctional and corrupt mosaic of worthless enterprises after the US secret intelligence community – can deal with. Israel needs to be rolled back – to include losing the Golan Heights. Palestine needs territorial integrity running from Gaza to Jericho, and Jerusalem needs to be an international city that excludes all Israeli military and police forces. Egypt and Jordan, and of course Turkey and Iran, have roles to play here, as do the USA (by withdrawing) and the Russians and Chinese (by engaging). As much as I detest the Balfour Declaration, and as much as Iran may want a one-state Palestine-take-all solution, I have no standing so I will just say that I hope the revitalized Saudi leadership will join with Egypt and Jordan and dare I suggest this – Iran — to find a solution for Palestine at the same time that Syria is resurrected with its original borders, and Lebanon again becomes the Riviera of the Middle East.
Sixth, energy and water – how the region deals with energy and water – will determine either the collapse of Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries, or their resurrection into a glorious reinstatement of Arab civilization in harmonious juxtaposition to the re-emergence of Byzantine and Persian civilizations. Free (ambient) energy, and solar energy, are here now and simply awaiting embrace and investment to scale. Free energy makes unlimited desalinated water possible. Instead of waging war on Syria and Yemen, the Arabs should be waging peace by focusing on this fundamental – and in passing, shut down the long-standing Israeli theft of water from the Jordanian aquifer via brilliant very long underground pipes that have been in place for quite some time.
Seventh, the Barcelona Agreement needs to be terminated in the sense that illegal unwanted Muslim immigration to Europe can no longer be tolerated and should be stopped and reversed, but in the most sensible humane possible manner: by ending dictatorships and repressive regimes and providing all Arabs with free energy, unlimited desalinated water, and the tools needed to recreate thriving towns and small cities across the region – the desert can, with unlimited water, be brought back to life much as the Dead Sea has been brought back to life.
Some Possibilities – Who Wins, Who Loses?
If there is a war in the Middle East, the only winners will be the banks.
If there is a war in the Middle East there will be three sets of losers: the public at large; the middle class, and the ruling class. Think Tunisian fruit seller times 20 million – out of 218 million people across the Middle East, most will lose income and some will lose family to a war in the Middle East, while ten percent of them will become so radicalized that the days of the ruling families will in my view be numbered. Vaclav Havel’s Power of the Powerless is relevant here – a war in the Middle East among nations could very quickly morph into a war between the 99% and the 1% — that is a war Israel and Saudi Arabia are certain to lose and it will take down the ruling families in Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia in passing.
I do not think Iran will lose a war in the Middle East, if the USA can be kept out of that war. As much as the USA has been pandering to the Zionists, under President Donald Trump we have successfully avoided a rush to war when the false flag Sarin attack funded by Saudi Arabia and Israel (and master-minded according to my source, by John McCain, John Brennan, and Herbert McMaster working closely with David Petraeus) was detected for what it was, and we did not put 150,000 US troops into Syria.
As a naval officer – and as the individual who co-created the Marine Corps Intelligence Activity and served as the Study Director for Planning and Programming Factors for Expeditionary Operations in the Third World (Marine Corps Combat Development Command, March 1990) – I have a deep understanding of US Navy vulnerabilities (and pretentions) and a deep appreciation for Iranian anti-ship capabilities. The Sunburn missile can travel at Mach 2.1 and zig-zag in at half that speed. As best I can tell any US carriers in the Gulf of Hormuz will be toast. The study I directed stated very clearly that the US Navy was out-gunned by most Third World coastal artilleries – Iran is a first-world country where it matters. 
I will also observe that the Iranians and the Russians appear to be sharing advances in electromagnetic capabilities. Not only do I believe that Iran is capable of destroying in mid-air and possibly also taking over and sending back missiles from Israel or Saudi Arabia, but it can – perhaps with Russian assistance – do electromagnetic incapacitation of entire naval vessels much as appears to have been done to a US destroyer by a Russian fly-over in the recent past. It may be able to seriously scramble the electronics of aircraft and missiles at altitude.
Finally, I see Iraq emergent as a junior partner to Iran, not because it is any less qualified intellectually and morally, but because of the terrible costs of the invasion and occupation of Iraq by the USA, and the terrible follow-on costs of the ISIS insurgency created by Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the USA. Iraq has begun a renaissance, and I for one pray that Iraq – like Viet-Nam – will one day be fully restored.
Everyone – except the banks – will lose if there is war in the Middle East.
Trumped? By Way of Deception
I do not believe that Yemen fired a missile at Saudi Arabia. I do not believe that Iran fired a missile at Saudi Arabia. I believe that Israel fired a missile at Saudi Arabia, perhaps with prior coordination so it could be (miraculously) intercepted. The Israelis are masters of deception, from “talking rocks” that simulate Libyan support for terrorists to Syrian officers allegedly calling for “more sarin gas.” The Zionists want a war between Saudi Arabia and Iran and I believe they will do anything they can to fool both sides into attacking one another, ideally with nuclear weapons.
It is my personal view that President Donald Trump cut a deal very early on with President Vladimir Putin, to assure peace in the Middle East and put Israel back into a very small box, and this is why the Zionists have been particularly rabid lately – they are frantic with the prospect of the US closing bases across the Middle East, and the arrival of Russia as the new arbiter of peace in the region, along with the Chinese and their buying power. In Beijing and in Viet-Nam, I believe there were off-the-record meetings and these three leaders are doing what John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev were starting to do until JFK was assassinated with the complicity of Israel (Yitzhak Rabin was in Dallas as the Zionist observer). They are coming together to triumph over the Deep State and its Satanic mix of saboteurs.
Nothing would please me more than peace in the Middle East. I believe it is possible. I believe that the Arabs, the Turks, and the Iranians have it within their grasp to pioneer free energy and unlimited desalinated water, to provide every one of their citizens with free access to the Internet and a free education, and to begin the long process of matching the Chinese – this is the Chinese century – going forward. This is also the century in which Western unilateral militarism, predatory capitalism, and virtual colonialism are ejected from Arabia, Africa, the Americas, and Southeast Asia.
The West has much to atone for in Arabia. It would be quite remarkable – and not at all impossible – for President Donald Trump to be leader that extricates the West from the Arabia, focuses on America First, and ends the Zionist subversion of the USA’s government, economy, and society. For this I pray.
In the hands of God.
 Personal conversation with Cabinet-level officer under President Ronald Reagan, 20 November 2017.
 The Secretary of State (Rex Tillerson) and the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (Mike Pompeo) appear to be aligned with the Deep State and favoring war with Iran. The Secretary of Defense (James Mattis) appears conflicted. Unlike a Presidential order to launch a nuclear missile against North Korea without a Congressional declaration of war, which can be refused as an illegal order, a Congressional declaration of war in support of Israel against Iran and others, however mis-guided, cannot be ignored – it must be confronted with a massive public education campaign and a united front across all patriotic senior officers who understand that the US Congress today is a whore with her legs spread for the Zionists. We have ninety days to shut down the Zionists and offer every Member of Congress a presidential pardon contingent on their giving up their blackmailers and committing to America First, not Israel First.

 The Goldman Sachs bets appear to have been placed in 2008 when they asserted oil would go to $200 a barrel as part of “demand shock.” Cf. Henry Blodget, “Goldman Oil Bull Speaks: Yes, Oil Still Going to $150-$200 A Barrel, Gas to $4-$6,” Business Insider, 7 June 2008. In fact oil dropped radically in part from conservation efforts, in part from the shale and fracking production, in part from the rise of renewable energy. What many do not understand is that wars – and manipulated interest and foreign exchange rates – is how banks make money. The oil under the Golan Heights of Syria, now occupied by Israel and under contract to Dick Cheney, see Michael B. Kelley, “Israel Grants First Golan Heights Oil Drilling License To Dick Cheney-Linked Company,” Business Insider, 22 February 2013.

 As the Marine Corps detailee to the Special Activities Division (SAD) of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Directorate of Operations (DO), it was Tim who suited me up for El Salvador with personal body armor and an emergency exfiltration kit – later, when I was directly threatened with assassination by the Colonels in charge of the country, neither proved useful. Tim – assuredly general officer material – was brought down by strategic errors made by the White House and the politicized military chain of command, not by his own short-comings.
 Report of the DoD Commission on Beirut International Airport Terrorist Act, 20 December 1983 is the unclassified version and quite good for pointing out how the expanding military role and the rules of engagement (development and implementation) made the Beirut Barracks bombing virtually inevitable. The TS/SCI version took up an entire “pilot-size” briefcase. As I recollect from my personal experience as a reserve officer serving in the Intelligence Division at Headquarters US Marine Corps, we noted two facts at the time: first, that the US national intelligence community was inept at “warning” to the tactical level; both national and military intelligence were inept at foreign-language tactical clandestine and overt human intelligence; and neither the national intelligence community nor the military intelligence community understood at the time that truck bombs were the new asymmetric inter-continental missile. Apart from the strategic context that made tactical failure inevitable, there was a failure of imagination and understanding among all of us in the military.

In my direct personal experience, the US secret intelligence community is too often fooled by Israeli deception – signals intelligence is not as good at geospatial precision as it should be, and it is possible to generate signals that simulate Libyan communications with terrorist groups, or Syrian officers calling for “more Sarin Gas” and so on. The Israelis are famous for deception and in particular for “talking rocks” planted by human assets or in some case dropped by aviation. Cf. Mongoose, “How Israel Fakes Out NSA with Signal Rocks that Simulate Syrian Army Transmissions About Sarin Gas UPDATE 2 NSA Incompetence,” Phi Beta Iota Public Intelligence Blog, 14 April 2017. Put bluntly, claims by NSA as possibly contained in the Long Commission Report with respect to Iranian culpability for the Beirut Barracks bombing are suspect. As with the Tonkin Gulf incident, there are too many unknowns, and completely apart from malicious intent within the USG elements seeking to blame Iran, this is by no means a proven matter, particularly when the depth of Zionist immorality – remember the USS Liberty – is held firmly in mind.
 Cf. William Blum, Killing Hope: US Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II, Updated Edition (ZED Books, 2014); and Chalmers Johnson, The Sorrows of Empire: Militarism, Secrecy, and the End of the Republic (Metropolitan Books, 2004). As a military and intelligence professional I am ashamed of what we have become, apart from elective wars and occupying armies, in the domains of torture and drone assassination. My two academic statements on these two crimes against humanity can be found at Robert Steele, “Review Essay: UNHINGED: drone assassination – American suicide,” Intelligence and National Security, Volume 33, Number 1, March 2017, pp. 145-150; and Robert Steele, “Book Reviews: Rebutttal-Lies Presented as Truth; BROKEN – The Truth as Fiction,” Ethical Human Psychology and Psychiatry, Volume 18, Number 2, 106, pp. 163-166.
 Honored more in the telling than the observation, this quote is a staple in US war college instruction: If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

 It is now well-known that the US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel conspired to create ISIS, that the US taxpayer is the primary source of income for the Israeli and Saudi militaries; and that it is US support for dictators world-wide, but particularly in the Middle East, that keep the larger publics in a state of misery and repression. Cf. (Ambassador) Mark Palmer, Breaking the Real Axis of Evil: How to Oust the World’s Last Dictators by 2025 (Rowman & Littlefield, 2003).

 On 26 May 2017 Attorney General Jeff Sessions received a one-page memorandum from William Binney and myself that outlined how he could leverage the 99% of the unprocessed data at the NSA to rapidly identify and connect every traitor, white collar criminal, and pedophile at the 1% level. It is possible that Admiral Mike Rogers, USN made this leap on his own before we sent in our advisory. All indications are that it is NSA that has provided the necessary evidence to support over 850 seal indictments in the USA, and very possible an equal or greater number of indictments or outright executive actions in other countries. The purge in Saudi Arabia, while long overdue and sensible, was probably accelerated and deepened by shared intelligence from NSA by direction of President Donald Trump. Regardless of the motivation (palace coup versus anti-corruption, for example), it is clear that Saudi Arabia is losing badly in Yemen and Syria, is about to see a collapse of its oil revenue, and is unsustainable in its present configuration. On balance the purge appears to offer a necessary starting point for the salvation of Saudi Arabia going forward.
 #GoogleGestapo appears to be manipulating search and repressing many of the sealed indictment stories. There are roughly 250 sealed indictments known to have been recently filed in the Washington DC, Virginia, and Maryland federal courts, and a total of at least 850 sealed indictments across the USA. The number could be much larger. The NSA unprocessed data, once leveraged by the Department of Justice, is the linch pin – with every cell call and every email in hand, once focused, more could be done with NSA data in three months than in a decade of effort by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) which has in any event been kept from going after traitors, white collar criminals, and elite pedophiles. Here is one source on sealed indictments: Editors, “294 more Sealed indictment found across US! Are they also taking down the Elites pedophile ring?” InvestmentWatchBlog.com, 10 November 2017.

 I have a history of being 40 years ahead of the conventional wisdom. This is my view – Zionism is over and nationalism (including ethnic nationalism and demands for freedom from Catalan to Kurdistan to Scotland) is on the rise and will inevitably come to pass.
 I have been told that Administration’s insistence that Russian and Chinese media companies register as agents of a foreign power is a prelude to eventually demanding that any organizations receiving money or direction from foreign powers also register: in other words, AIPAC and ADL.
 Zionist slang for a gentile girl, equivalent to a whore, who “does not count.”
 Image Credit [Insert into Collage]: Craig McKee, “What we should have learned from Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty,” TruthandShadows, 8 June 2017. For additional materials see USS Liberty @ Phi Beta Iota. There are strong indications that President Lyndon Baines Johnson was complicit in the planned attack to the point of ordering the USS Amberjack (a submarine) to fire torpedoes at the USS Liberty when the Israeli’s failed to do the job. Johnson then led the cover-up including the threat of jail and loss of pension to all of the survivors if they spoke of Israel’s blatant act of war against the USA.
 The Zionists started planning 9/11 in 1988 but it was not until the Bush Administration in 1998 that they had all the pieces in place including Dick Cheney as Vice President. Two big things happened in 1998: first, the Gold War against Russia was started by Presidential order with Buzzy Kronggard moving to CIA from Brown & Root to supervise this war; and second, the joint Israel-US (Neoconservative) cabal began planning 9/11 in earnest. Two particularly good books on the Zionist role in 9/11 are Christopher Lee Bollyn, Solving 9-11: The Deception That Changed the World (Christopher Bollyn, 2012), and Mark H. Gaffney, Black 9/11: Money, Motive and Technology (Trine Day, 2012).

 Cf. S.720 – Israel Anti-Boycott Law, 115th Congress, introduced in Senate 23 March 2017. An equivalent House of Representatives bill exists. While unlikely to pass, it is my view that every co-sponsor of these two bills should be recalled from office for being a traitor and putting Israel First. Certainly they should not be re-elected.
 Kyle Swenson, “This Texas town offers hurricane relief — if your politics are right,” Washington Post, 20 October 2017; Patrick Strickland, “Wisconsin governor signs anti-boycott Israel order,” Al-Jazeera, 20 October 2017. It turns out at least 23 US states – probably more – have such laws and regulations in place, in contradiction to the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

 Robert Steele, “Zion in Shiksa-Land – Harvey Weinstein First Major Jewish Pedophilia Domino in the USA,” Phi Beta Iota Public Intelligence Blog, 20 October 2017. See Epstein @ Phi Beta Iota. My conclusion that Epstein may be protected by the CIA (and FBI) stems in part from his very long run as the leading pedophile entrapment specialist in the USA. Neither CIA nor the FBI are stupid. They all seem to be collaborating in blackmailing Members of Congress. I believe the sealed settlement in the Virginia Roberts is particularly telling, see Conchita Sarnoff, “Jeffrey Epstein: Money Conquers Justice, Deception Reigns,” The Daily Caller, 26 May 2017. For a worst case account of how pedophilia and mind-control have free range across the USG, see Cathy O’Brien and Mark Phillips, TRANCE: Formation of America, The True Life Story of a CIA Mind Control Slave (Reality Marketing, 2005).

 I have personally experienced what I call “six ways in ninety days” of censorship, crowd-stalking, and digital assassination at the hands of the Zionists, and outline my personal speculative understanding of “the system” at Robert Steele, “How The Deep State Controls Social Media and Digitally Assassinates Critics: #GoogleGestapo – Censorship & Crowd-Stalking Made Easy,” American Herald Tribune, November 7, 2017.
 The public would benefit from understanding that it is not only the Zionists that are in full retreat, but also the Vatican, which should not have diplomatic status with any country. The best book on the deep depravity of elements of the Catholic Church, predominantly the Jesuits who have managed Vatican gold and property and access to elites since time immemorial, is Joaquin Hagopian, Pedophilia & Empire: Satan, Sodomy, & the Deep State (Forthcoming, 2018), with the first eleven chapters now available free in full text online, as downloadable documents, and as Kindle Shorts. This will, however, take time. Ideally a Trump Channel will be created over the holidays, along with the Election Reform Act of 2017, such that 2018 sees an educated public electing an Independent Congress committed to evidence-based governance.

Apart from the emergence of Russia as an arbiter of peace in the region, the potential of Turkish and Iranian collaboration cannot be over-stated. Cf. Gareth Porter, “Turkey and Iran Reach Agreement on Conditions for Syria Peace,” TruthOut.org, 18 August 2017.
 Academic and media coverage of Iran as a world power is grossly inadequate. Here is one article that properly places Iran among the top eight powers, but the article also fails to recognize Indonesia, the largest and richest Muslim country in the world. Walter Russell Mead & Harry Zieve Cohen, “The Eight Great Powers of 2016: Iran Joins the Club,” The American Interest, 26 January 2016. See also Editors, “The rise and rise of Iran: How Tehran has become pivotal to the future of the Middle East,” The Conversation, 1 September 2017; Doreen Horschig, “Could Iran Emerge as the Middle East Superpower?” WorldPress.org, 17 April 2017; and Samia Nakhoul, “Iran moves from pariah state to regional power,” Reuters, 27 January 2016.
 The best briefing on Israeli atrocities and thefts related to water is Chuck Spinney, “Israel, Water, & Palestine,” Phi Beta Iota Public Intelligence Blog, 21 June 2016. One briefing, prepared for India, may be useful in expanding on this point: Robert Steele, “The Ultimate Hack – Resilient Villages, Smart Cities, Prosperous Nations at Peace — and Unlimited Clean Water,” Potomac, Maryland, 6 March 2016. Free energy, lately ambient energy not just solar or other forms of renewable energy, has been proven beyond doubt. The delays are associated with government certification of house-level offerings as “safe,” and scale. This would be a superb focus for the new King of Thailand, the new leader in Saudi Arabia, and the second term of General Secretary Xi Jinping. Of course I would be glad to see Iran embrace my ideas for Open Source Everything Engineering (OSEE), and become the center of gravity for OSEE applications across the Middle East, north into Central Asia, and southwest into Africa.
 Barcelona Declaration, Balder.org, undated, accessed 16 November 2017. The actual agreement is relatively straight-forward, Barcelona declaration adopted at the Euro-Mediterranean Conference – 27-28/11/95 but according to multiple critics, bribes to European leaders explicitly set up unlimited acceptance of illegal Muslim immigrants going forward.

 The briefing, the model, and the most important outcome of the study, the Strategic Generalizations relevant to Marine Corps acquisition (the focus of Commandant General Al Gray, USMC) can be viewed online at “1990 Expeditionary Environment Analytic Model,” Phi Beta Iota Public Intelligence Blog, 15 March 1990.
 Cf. Editors, “AEGIS Fail in Black SEA, Ruskies Burn Down USS Donald ‘Duck’,” Veterans Today, 13 November 2014. See also Julian Robinson, “Russian media claim its military is now capable of neutralizing US warships with electronic jamming devices,” The Daily Mail, 19 April 2017. Here is a forum that states that the ship had to make an emergency stop in Romania where 27 crew members filed letters of resignation: “EW Attack on USS Donald Cook,” DefenceTalk.com, 25 January 2015. And here is a claim that the entire matter is Russian disinformation: George Leopold, “Fake Russian EW attack unmasked,” DefenseSystems.com, 12 May 2017. The US has never been responsible about electromagnetic separation, deconfliction, and survivability. When we went into Afghanistan all our systems were jamming each other because they had all been acquired in a stove-piped acquisition system with zero accountability for inter-operability and survivability. I wrote the first warning letter to the White House in 1994 on this topic: Robert Steele with James Anderson, William Caelli, and Winn Schwartau, “Correspondence, Sounding the Alarm on Cyber Security,” McLean, VA: Open Source Solutions, Inc., August 23, 1994.

 Rabin’s presence in Dallas on the day was documented by his wife, Leah Rabin, in her biography, Rabin: Our Life, His Legacy (Outnams, 1997). The best over-all summary of the deep Zionist involvement in the assassination of JFK is Michael Collins Piper, “Israel’s Central Role in the JFK Assassination,” Rense.com, 2010, extracted from Final Judgement: The missing link in the JFK assassination conspiracy (The Center for Historical Review, 2000).
