New Democrat Campaign "Ad"

Pearl Harbor attack



Pearl Harbor, target rich environment with ships packed 3 deep. To entice the Japanese to hit us.


I am very well aware we were tricked into WW2. I am also very much aware that JAPAN was slicing and dicing it's way through most of the Pacific, outright murdering entire indigenous populations left and right. What they did in China alone has never been completely revealed. But the entire communities in that country wiped out by Japanese invaders is in excess of 3.2 millions.

So, someone had to stop them. The very first casualties was my mother's uncle, John John, killed by an exploding bomb on the battleship California. He had good eyes.


But also, who enabled them to go on this rampage, doing and saying nothing for ten long years while the Japanese ran roughshod over most of the Pacific? Who made Pearl such a target rich environment, but conveniently moving the large aircraft carriers far out to sea the very week the attack set sail? And leaving thousands of sailors, their ships, and airfields in stand down mode and lax security so the Japos couldn't help but hit something.



Why did senior officers bury any reports of the Japanese in US waters in the two weeks leading up to the attack and in several cases, sending airmen and sailors off island to shut them up about seeing Jap ships and submarines while out on patrol?



Quite a few people have blood on their hands in this little affair. ONI assets made sure double agents were assured that no real defense of the island would take place, if Japan did what was wanted. So it did. This all came out in declas decades later.
Britain and the USA.

USS California, battleship my Great Uncle was on, John Martin. Killed in the attack.

Celebrate Christmas?

Tesla Owners Wait In Half-Mile-Long Line To Charge Their Cars On Black Friday

 The shits and giggles part  about Tesla stations is fully 40% of them are run by DIESEL GENERATORS, WHICH EMIT 25 TIMES THE POLLUTION GASOLINE CARS DO. You never hear about that part. Running diesel, to power EV, to cut pollution of gas. You see the lie now. I've been telling you people for 15 years about this. And, the average EV car, with a full charge, has a range of 120 miles, tops. That's not very far, given where you might want to go, be, and do. And recharging takes anywhere from an hour to 3 hours. Just to go another 100 miles.

You cannot be that stupid to see how VERY BAD this all is. It's the rich, elite satanic left buying these and snobbing it up to people, not the average joe.

Dozens of Agenda 21 promoting satanists who have convinced the public that they are single-handedly saving the planet wound up spending an average of SIX HOURS of their Black Friday waiting on an extensive line to have their cars charged. NOT COUNTING CHARGING TIME. Many Teslas had to be towed away because their batteries drained dry. End of vacation. End of plans. and YOU ARE FUCKED.

Let that sink in. Really. You think about that. SELA.

Because that's the future of America if we ever go full EV. Cars with no range. No ability to charge en route. And stuck with NO POWER to get to a charger.

The Kettleman City Supercharger station, which boasts 40 charging stalls, was "overrun" on Black Friday, according to video and photos posted by the Daily Mail. These lines are being reported from ALL OVER THE WORLD, and not a single mention about it in the MSM. 

And why? Because once you see the future of this stupidity, you will never buy one of these low distance turd mobiles that self combust. That's why.


Shanon Stellini was traveling through the area on November 30 and found a backlog of "around 50" Teslas waiting to charge at the station which is off Interstate 5. Among dozens of other Tesla charge stations with lines 2 to 6 blocks long.




















The scene has become more common at Superchargers around the U.S. "Bet they wish they had gas," Stellini's partner says in the video. 

The icing on the cake is the fact that when more cars are trying to recharge at once, it slows down the process of recharging for everybody else. 

It was unclear exactly how long drivers were forced to wait to have their cars fully charged, but one person Tweeted that they had been waiting on line for 40 minutes and was only "halfway" to the charger. 

There are now around 400,000 Teslas on the roads of the U.S. and the company's commitment to hoarding its cash by any means necessary, including not paying bills and not investing in its Supercharger network, could finally be coming back to bite its owners in pronounced fashion.









The day before Black Friday, another video was posted online showing 15 Teslas waiting at a Supercharger station in San Luis Obispo at about 4:45pm on the Thanksgiving holiday. Owners can reach a 100% charge in 175 minutes according to the article. 


The video shows a line of cars wrapped around the Madonna Inn, with many owners waiting outside their vehicles, waiting for their chance to charge their cars.

"Supercharger stations are conveniently located near desirable amenities like restaurants, shops and WiFi hotspots. Each station contains multiple Superchargers to get you back on the road quickly," Tesla says. WHICH IS A DAMNED LIE. If you are in a line, you have to stay with the car to keep moving it up. And as anyone who pays attention knows, Tesla and most EV charging stations are USUALLY PLACED IN THE WORST AND MOST DANGEROUS PARTS OF TOWN, where robberies, theft, murder, and rapes are HIGHEST.

This is all by design.

Hey Greta? Go F yourself and your satanic handlers. I saw that video of your mommy the witch, doing a ritual with her coven. Then youtube took it down, but I have it, you hate filled little lesbian.

From the Internet

This year I drove my Lexus from Palo Alto to Las Vegas for 7 hours with only 1 gas stop and 2 meal stops. Last year, same route same kick off time (11AM Wednesday), with Tesla 250mi cruising range, it took us 12 hours and we had waited at 3 Supercharging stops (Kettleman City, Mojave, and Baker, with meals on site). HUGE hassle there but it sure leaves much to be desired. Will never do EV long distance again.

What happens with PG&E and Edison decides to pull their plugs as they do now EVERY WEEK for the most bullshit of reasons? In Cali, power is now optional, like every other 3rd world shit hole.
------------
(F)Elon Musk: inventor of the Tesla Portable Human BBQ'ing Machine. Now available with more powerfully exploding Lithium batteries for that extra charcoal taste!

You should come to Alabama. Super charger stations are things that don't exist. You charge at home or not at all unless you drive 100 miles to the big city. To get a 100 mile charge in our state takes 6 hours. SIX HOURS. To go a measly 100 miles. You people are fucking stupid for buying this garbage. Even then, once in the city, to go another 100 miles the charger takes 4 HOURS.
-------------.

Toysla: 175 minutes + waiting time to get to the charger. (hahahahahaha fags)
Gas guzzling V8:  1 minute to fill up tank.
-----------------
My friend in Berzerkely CA has a Tesla and has been trying to hook me up to the Tesla lifestyle. Here's his pitch..."my Tesla gets 300 MPC, it's clean, green, powerful, stylish. Battery charges in 2 hours if fully drained, at a super charger. Wow! Only two hours to charge up your car....yeah only two hours...if the charger is free to use. If it's not free...just go grab a cup of coffee and relax....relax? "
Relax? And how many of those super chargers are around? Never saw one.
So my current SUV has a 26 gallon tank...runs on regular....gets 535 MPT...takes less than 10 minutes to fill up. Fuel is available every 10 miles between stops. I drive across the country a couple of times a year. Some parts of the country you travel 400 miles between gas stations. I never see electric charging stations along the way. Not even at the gas stations or truck stops.
So I'm having a hard time excepting the idea of this green new deal....by the way which uses mostly coal, diesel or natural gas to power the generators that power up the Tesla's. 
This story quoted here just adds to my skepticism about drinking the koolaid.
And if your Tesla is in a wreck and totaled it's considered hazardous waste and the junk yard won't accept it.
Convince me this Tesla thing works.....if you can.  You shills make me sick.
------------
Exactly right.  Fill your tank in 10 minutes, probably somewhere around a 30 MW (yes megawatt) power transfer.  And you can do it anywhere.  Tesla 60 kWh battery in 2 hours is 0.12 MW.  No thanks.  I love the energy density of liquid hydrocarbons.  And as you are probably aware, CO2 doesn't cause climate change. Liberals are literally brain dead retards.

Fascist Satanists Twitter Censorship Confirmed: "Shadow Banning" Is Now Written Into The Platform's New Terms

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,
Twitter has written “shadow banning” aka, censorship, into their new terms.  The platform will now intentionally “limit the visibility” of some users. Expect those who dissent from the official narrative to be the ones censored. 

That means you and your 
  • vaccine awareness
  • illegal CIA operations in the USA
  • MKULTRA droids in high and low places
  • exposure of satanism in every aspect of our world
  • chemtrail awareness
  • exposing the crimes of the satanic left and all that freaky dead shit
  • et al

STFU truth teller

Critics have accused Twitter of censorship for quite some time now.  But this time, it’s official. The company has admitted they will attempt to silence those critical of the ruling class. According to RT, the news terms will be taking effect in January of 2020. While the new terms don’t look like much to write home about, some tweaks to the language could have larger repercussions for users, limiting their reach behind the scenes without their knowledge.
“We may also remove or refuse to distribute any Content on the Serviceslimit distribution or visibility of any Content on the service, suspend or terminate users, and reclaim usernames without liability to you,” the new terms state.
The social media giant is telling users that it reserves the right shadow ban or “throttle” or censor certain accounts. And it is not clear on what basis will it make those decisions, although we guess (based on their past which is rife with censorship) that accounts that aren’t parroting the government’s official narrative will be on the list.
While Twitter has previously lied point-blank “we do not shadow ban, in the pre-2020 terms the company split hairs between shadow banning and ranking” posts to determine their prominence on the site, and acknowledged deliberately down-ranking bad-faith actors” to limit their visibility. Of course they lied, are lying, and will continue to lie. That's what the satanic, CIA controlled left does - it fucking lies about everything to control the narrative.

In January 2018, conservative media watchdog group Project Veritas published footage showing Abhinov Vadrevu, a former Twitter software engineer, discussing shadow banning as a strategy the company was at least considering, if not already using. “One strategy is to shadow ban so you have ultimate control. The idea of a shadow ban is that you ban someone but they don’t know they’ve been banned because they keep posting and no one sees their content,” Vadrevu said. “So they just think that no one is engaging with their content when in reality, no one is seeing it.”

The new terms will make shadow bans an official policy, all but guaranteeing continued cries of bias and censorship from the platform’s many critics will be silenced.

The 1st amendment is dead, not by congress, but by corporations. 

Once the last of your freedoms is gone THEN YOU WILL BE GONE.

Juicing and Raw Foods: Subway Loses Lawsuit Against Journalists Who Disco...

Juicing and Raw Foods: Subway Loses Lawsuit Against Journalists Who Disco...: Four years after learning their longtime spokesman was a giant pedophile (no surprise), Subway has suffered yet another embarrassment after a Canadian co...

Mifsud is (or was) an Italian intelligence asset "who the C.I.A. weaponized,"

The Washington Post reports that Attorney General William Barr's hand-picked prosecutor could not confirm that Russiagate figure Joseph Mifsud is a US intelligence asset - thus, according to the Post, the Russiagate counterintelligence investigation against the Trump campaign could not have been a setup.
CIA

The revelation comes from the Post's Matt Zapotosky and Devlin Barrett (the latter of whom had a direct line to former FBI attorney Lisa Page according to her text messages), and will reportedly appear in the forthcoming report by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
In short, Horowitz asked US Attorney John Durham if Mifsud was a US intelligence asset "deployed to ensnare the campaign," to which Durham - who is conducting a separate review of the 2016 US election - responded that his investigation "had not produced any evidence that might contradict the inspector general's findings on that point," according to the Post.
Of note, Mifsud told (or seeded) 2016 Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos with the rumor that Russia had 'dirt' on Hillary Clinton, on April 26, 2016. Two weeks later, he repeated it to Australian diplomat (and Clinton ally) Alexander Downer at a London bar, who relayed the Kremlin 'dirt' rumor to Australian authorities, which alerted the FBI - kicking off the official counterintelligence operation against the Trump campaign, dubbed Operation Crossfire Hurricane.  
That said, the Post adds "The Washington Post has not reviewed Horowitz’s entire report, even in draft form. It is also unclear if Durham has shared the entirety of his findings and evidence with the inspector general, or merely answered a specific question."
CIA

Papadopoulos, meanwhile, has posited that Mifsud is (or was) an Italian intelligence asset "who the C.I.A. weaponized," according to an October New York Times report. Moreover, Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani told Fox News in April that Mifsud was "a counterintelligence operative, either Maltese or Italian," who may have participated in a "counterintelligence trap" against the Trump campaign aide.
Notably, AG Barr himself traveled to Italy in Mid-September to discuss Mifsud, and was reportedly told by the head of the Italian Security Intelligence Department, Gennaro Vecchione, that Mifsud was not one of their assets.
According to a former Italian government official, Barr first met with Gennaro Vecchione, the head of Italy’s Security Intelligence Department, on Aug. 15, essentially to establish contact, and returned Sept. 27 for a second meeting with the heads of Italy’s domestic and foreign intelligence services.
Barr, the official said, “asked if Italian intelligence knew anything about Mifsud and if the Italians were aware of his role” in the Russia investigation “in terms of being involved in Italian intelligence itself or if he was politically tied with Italian political leaders allied with the Democrats.” The Italians, the official said, “explained that there is no involvement by the Italian intelligence services in this — and the fact that we don’t have any evidence of this plot.”
They confirmed no connections, no activities, no interference,” the official said. -Washington Post, Oct. 6
As we have noted ad-nauseum, Mifsud has bragged about being a member of the Clinton Foundation. Meanwhile, here is a timeline of Mifsud's interactions with Papadopoulos, via The Markets Work:
We know that Papadopoulos met multiple times with Mifsud in the first half of 2016:
  • March 14 2016 – Papadopoulos first meets Mifsud in Italy – approximately one week after finding out he will be joining the Trump team.
  • March 24 2016 – Papadopoulos, Mifsud, Olga Polonskaya and unknown fourth party meet in a London cafe.
  • April 18 2016 – Mifsud introduces Papadopoulos to Ivan Timofeev, an official at a state-sponsored think tank called Russian International Affairs Council.
  • April 26 2016  – Mifsud tells Papadopoulos he’s met with high-level Russian government officials who have “dirt” on Clinton. Papadopoulos will tell the FBI he learned of the emails prior to joining the Trump Campaign.
  • May 13 2016 – Mifsud emails Papadopoulos an update of “recent conversations”.
Note: Papadopoulos and Mifsud reportedly both worked at the London Centre of International Law Practice. -The Markets Work
So - was Mifsud an asset of any state intelligence apparatus - or was he working with any on behalf of Hillary Clinton?
And let's not forget that during Operation Crossfire Hurricane, the FBI sent operative Stephen Halper and a mysterious woman named "Azra Turk" to befriend and conduct espionage on Papadopoulos for events which took place on UK soil - and which AG Barr has said he considers spying.
Halper - who was paid more than $1 million by the Pentagon while Obama was president - contacted Papadopoulos on September 2, 2016 according to The Daily Caller - and would later fly him out to London under the guise of working on a policy paper on energy issues in Turkey, Cyprus and Israel - for which he was ultimately paid $3,000. Papadopoulos met Halper several times during his stay, "having dinner one night at the Travellers Club, and Old London gentleman's club frequented by international diplomats." 
As the New York Times noted om May, the London operation "yielded no fruitful information," while the FBI has called their activities in the months before the 2016 election as both "legal and carefully considered under extraordinary circumstances," according to the report.

Elderly Residents Kicked Out Of Apartments To Make Way For Muslim thugs

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,
Dozens of elderly residents were forced to leave their apartments in an area of Stockholm after the block was closed, only to be re-opened again for Jihadis to replace them.

Residents at Dianagården were told they would have to leave because the toilets in the facility were 5cm too small to comply with regulations.
However, soon after the 48 apartments were emptied, they were filled with newly arrived Jihadis.
“It was later revealed that politicians planned that Jihadis would instead move into the premises,” reports Fria Tider.
In 2015, Sweden accepted more refugees per capita than any other country, and despite worsening problems with sexual assaults, grenade attacks and violent crime, the inflow shows no sign of being seriously restricted.

A recent opinion poll found that the anti-mass migration Sweden Democrats are now the most popular party in Sweden. The Sweden Democrats would get 24.2% of the votes if an election was held today, beating the ruling Social Democrats.

Back in October, Leif Östling, former CEO of trucking company Scania, warned that Sweden is heading towards civil war due to uncontrolled mass immigration.
“We’ve taken in far too many people from outside. And we have. Those who come from the Middle East and Africa live in a society that we left almost a hundred years ago,” he said.

Tesla Is Theranos




Tesla bears – a lot of them are people I respect; some of them are my dear friends – would point out that there is yet another side to Musk, the (fraudulent) Elizabeth Holmes side.
Holmes was CEO of Theranos, a Silicon Valley startup with a board of directors that was the worst human beings behind the most odious events of the last 50 years, including two former U.S. secretaries of State, Henry Kissinger and George Shultz. At the height of its hype, Theranos had a private market value of $10 billion. Holmes graced the covers of business magazines, gave a TED talk that was watched by millions, was a role model for young women, and had the reputation of a visionary who was going to improve the lives of billions with a product that would be able to run hundreds of medical tests from a small drop of blood.

Holmes may have had great aspirations, but the difficulty or impossibility (at least today) of what she was trying to do caught up with her and she had to resort to outright deception and fraud. Theranos went down in flames.











Bears argue that we are blinded by the Iron Man side of Musk and don’t see the Elizabeth Holmes side: that on top of making promises he doesn’t intend to keep, he is actually playing a confidence game. Bears point out that Musk committed securities fraud (stock manipulation) when he tweeted that he was taking Tesla private at $420, with “funding secured.” This was a lie to scare short sellers out of Tesla stock.

In another such move, Musk personally called a short seller’s employer, threatening the employer with a lawsuit if the employer didn’t stop the short seller from posting negative research about Tesla on Seeking Alpha and Twitter. (Elizabeth Holmes had resorted to similar tactics).

Tesla bears also point to Musk’s bailout of SolarCity – a heavily indebted, money-losing solar company with a broken business model, run by Musk’s cousin. It would have gone bankrupt in a few months if Tesla shareholders hadn’t bought it. A bankrupt SolarCity would have damaged Musk’s reputation as the Iron Man who succeeds at everything and thus would have tanked Tesla’s valuation and cut off the company’s ability to issue cheap equity. By bailing out SolarCity, Musk heaped a money-burning operation and billions of dollars of debt onto Tesla, which was already struggling to break even.

The bears questioned Musk’s state of mind (sanity) when he called a British diver rescuing Thai kids trapped in a cave a “pedo” in a tweet.

I want to remind you that I started out this essay quoting F. Scott Fitzgerald and explaining that in our analysis of Tesla and Elon Musk we needed to maintain “two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.”

There are a lot of opposed ideas here.

Skeptics have plenty of substance in their arguments against Tesla. History is on their side. Other than Tesla, the last car company to be started in the U.S. and survive to the present day was born in 1930, and two car companies went bankrupt during the 2008 financial crisis. Yes, Musk’s stock manipulation with the “funding secured” tweet was simply immoral and illegal. We can vent about it, but the outrage people feel over that behavior (yours truly included) is irrelevant to Tesla’s future. Musk paid a fine to the SEC and is still running the company. (Any other CEO probably would have been fired and might have gone to jail).
However, the issue raises a more important question: Is Musk an asset or a liability to Tesla? Well, he may be both. On one side, he is a n alleged genius and a visionary (sold by the CIA controlled MSM who also controls Musk, their MKultra boy) who deeply cares about Tesla’s success and is willing to sleep in the factory to get things done. But he also is an incredible micromanager and a benevolent dictator who runs four companies. He is overworked and exhausted, and this to some degree explains (though it doesn’t excuse) his erratic behavior and his tweets, too. That's the official, always sold, legend about Musk.

The truth is far different. He is a double dealing liar, who sends swat teams to the homes of employees who disagrees with him, to get them killed. That's the kind of soul this bastard has. He has done this FOUR times already and no doubt, will continue to do so to enemies that can tell the truth about him and how he "runs" the company. And he doesn't run shit. Others do. He just gets the press, as so many have declared, coming from his companies.

If something were to happen to him or he was removed from Tesla, what would happen to the company? Would Tesla turn into Apple after it fired Steve Jobs in 1985 or the Apple of 2011 after Steve Jobs passed away? The Apple of 1985 withered because it did not have enough breadth of products or the depth of management needed to replace a charismatic visionary. Jobs left a vacuum of leadership and vision when he was fired, and John Sculley – a Pepsi executive – was not up to the task.

The Apple of 2011 was in a much stronger position and much more broadly based, with a stronger leadership team. Tim Cook was handpicked by Steve Jobs and groomed for years to replace him. And though Apple as a business has done well since Jobs’ passing, the company’s subsequent innovation has been very evolutionary, not revolutionary. It has mostly improved the categories of products developed under Jobs but has not come up with a significant new product category (aside from the Apple Watch). In fact, it has tried and so far failed at producing a car. 

The Apple watch...what a fucking joke. Anyone who bought those pieces of shit quickly learned how fast the broke down and thousands down the drain. Just to tell the time.

The Apple example shows that replacing a benevolent dictator/visionary is very difficult but not impossible. Success depends on timing, the company’s competitive and financial strength at the time, depth of management, and luck. Tesla today seems to lack depth of management – it’s shedding executives faster than I am losing my hair. Today Tesla is closer to the Apple of 1985 than that of 2011 and can hardly afford to lose its never working hate filled SOB dictator.

Tesla’s success will be determined by the financial viability of its business: Can the business finance itself? Tesla’s success as a stock will depend in the end on the company’s earnings power.

Then there is IN-Q-TEL. The wholly owned CIA front company who gave Musk and crew his funding to startup up this "take away our freedom from travel" with low distance, poor running, cars. Behind every pushed company in the media stands this satanic cabal of evil millionaires who finance and then own, businesses designed to reduce our standard of living. Going green, EV, the works.


Tesla is growing at the speed of a Silicon Valley startup, but in addition to writing a lot of software, it is building Gigafactories, a global Supercharger network, service centers, and stores, and designing its own self-driving processor – all while competing against companies that are better capitalized and on the 50th iteration of their ICE products (and thus have more consistent quality).

All with the purpose to switch over from cheap and far traveling gas engines, to shoddy EV autos that require thousands of dollars to charge up, and have the averange range of 120 miles per full charge. That means, once they have switched the ENTIRE auto industry to this crap, no one will be able to drive more than 50 miles in any one direction, without having to turn back for fear of running out of juice before they get home. Then they have you...you are stuck where you are. 

Forever.

Every time Tesla has stumbled, and it has stumbled plenty, it has gotten up, regrouped, and moved forward. My personal experience with Tesla’s service has been excellent. But I read that today Tesla is still experiencing growing pains with its service. This makes sense – its serviceable car fleet has more than doubled over the past year and a half. The Tesla technician who fixed my Model 3 speakerphone told me that his scheduling software still needs work, as he is sent to back-to-back appointments that are 50 miles apart. This doesn’t sound like a permanent issue, though; a quick software fix should resolve it.
One very important thing that Tesla has and Theranos did not is an incredible product and people who are fanatical about it. Tesla cars are superior to other EVs and actually to most non-EV alternatives made by the competition today. Talk to any Tesla owner and he (it is usually a he) will rave for hours about how much he loves the car. I have yet to meet a GM or Toyota owner who has the fanaticism of a Tesla owner.

This is why Tesla spends zero on advertising (while ICE carmakers spend billions) but has a bigger sales force than all GM, Ford, and Chrysler dealers combined – Tesla has passionate owners, and its sales force is growing with every car sold.





Today it is really hard to tell whether Tesla will reach escape velocity and turn profitable before investors and capital markets lose their patience and willingness to finance its losses. By buying SolarCity, Tesla certainly made its journey more difficult. But the company is not sitting still and is trying to cut costs. Here is one example. The Model S had two miles of electrical wire, the Model 3 has “only” one mile, and the Model Y is expected (if it can actually be implemented) to have only 100 meters.

If Tesla is able to increase its production, the incremental cost per car should decline. Let me explain. The cost of a car has two components, fixed and variable. Variable costs include the battery, tires, engine, etc. These costs don’t usually decrease much (though they do decrease some) as a larger number of cars are produced.

Fixed costs, like running a Gigafactory and developing software, decline on a per car basis as Tesla increases its production. Assuming demand for Tesla’s cars continues to increase, the company’s gross margin (how much it makes per car) should increase, and thus it will reach profitability.

However, even in the worst case, if Tesla runs out of money and bond and equity investors lose faith in the company, it is unlikely to follow the fate of failed car companies (think DeLorean or Tucker). It will be bought by an ICE automaker or a Silicon Valley comrade (Google or Apple). It would save them billions in losses on R&D and getting up to scale. Investors would still lose money, of course, because at that point the distressed purchase price would be a fraction of today’s price.

Lincoln’s Thanksgiving Proclamation

The Daily Messenger: Lincoln’s Thanksgiving Proclamation:

Thanksgiving, the holiday, has NOT A THING TO DO with Indians, or Euro settlers and genocide. That's all a bunch of bull, as much as any of the propaganda of the 20th century has been.

Lincoln had just been re elected in the midst of a terrible civil war. He was grateful. He fully expected to be kicked out and replaced by his timid former general McClellan. So, he made it a day of thanks.

OF GIVING THANKS FOR OUR BLESSINGS.

All the rest you hear about is total nonsense taught by the hate whitey campaign, sweeping over the world. 

DB

The year that is drawing toward its close has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. …

No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American people.

I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and union.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington, this Third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the Unites States the Eighty-eighth.

GHW Bush & JFK Hit Part 5



 
 
 
 
 
 
The Mysterious Mr. de Mohrenschildt
October 14, 2013
 
 
 
George de Mohrenschildt
 


"Must have angered a lot of people"

In 1976, more than a decade after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, a letter arrived at the CIA, addressed to its director, the Hon. George Bush.
 
The letter was from a desperate-sounding man in Dallas, who spoke regretfully of having been indiscreet in talking about Lee Harvey Oswald and begged Poppy for help:
Maybe you will be able to bring a solution into the hopeless situation I find myself in. My wife and I find ourselves surrounded by some vigilantes; our phone bugged; and we are being followed everywhere.

Either FBI is involved in this or they do not want to accept my complaints. We are driven to insanity by this situation... tried to write, stupidly and unsuccessfully, about Lee H. Oswald and must have angered a lot of people...

Could you do something to remove this net around us? This will be my last request for help and I will not annoy you anymore.
The writer signed himself "G. de Mohrenschildt."
 
 

"The Scream"
by Edvard Munch
 

The CIA staff assumed the letter writer to be a crank.
 
Just to be sure, however, they asked their boss:
Did he by any chance know a man named de Mohrenschildt?
Bush responded by memo, seemingly self-typed:
I do know this man De Mohrenschildt. I first men [sic] him in the early 40’3 [sic]. He was an uncle to my Andover roommate. Later he surfaced in Dallas (50’s maybe)... Then he surfaced when Oswald shot to prominence. He knew Oswald before the assassination of Pres. Kennedy. I don’t recall his role in all this.
Not recall? Once again, Poppy Bush was having memory problems. And not about trivial matters.
 
George de Mohrenschildt was not just the uncle of a roommate, but a longtime personal associate. Yet Poppy could not recall - or more precisely, claimed not to recall - the nature of de Mohrenschildt’s relationship with the man believed to have assassinated the thirty-fifth president.

This would have been an unusual lapse on anyone’s part. But for the head of an American spy agency to exhibit such a blasé attitude, in such an important matter, was over the edge.
 
At that very moment, several federal investigations were looking into CIA abuses - including the agency’s role in assassinations of foreign leaders. These investigations were heading toward what would become a reopened inquiry into Kennedy’s death.
 
Could it be that the lapse was not casual, and the acknowledgment of a distant relationship was a way to forestall inquiry into a closer one?

Writing back to his old friend, Poppy assured the Mohrenschildt that his fears were entirely unfounded. Yet half a year later, de Mohrenschildt was dead. The cause was officially determined to be suicide with a shotgun. Investigators combing through de Mohrenschildt’s effects came upon his tattered address book, largely full of entries made in the 1950’s.
 
Among them, though apparently eliciting no further inquiries on the part of the police, was an old entry for the current CIA director, with the Midland address where he had lived in the early days of Zapata:
BUSH, GEORGE H. W. (POPPY), 1412 W. OHIO ALSO ZAPATA PETROLEUM MIDLAND.

 
 
De Mohrenschildt and the Oswalds

When Poppy told his staff that his old friend de Mohrenschildt "knew Oswald," that was an understatement. From 1962 through the spring of 1963, de Mohrenschildt was by far the principal influence on Oswald, the older man who guided every step of his life.
 
De Mohrenschildt had helped Oswald find jobs and apartments, had taken him to meetings and social gatherings, and generally had assisted with the most minute aspects of life for Lee Oswald, his Russian wife, Marina, and their baby.

De Mohrenschildt’s relationship with Oswald has tantalized and perplexed investigators and researchers for decades.
 
In 1964, de Mohrenschildt and his wife Jeanne testified to the Warren Commission, which spent more time with them than any other witness - possibly excepting Oswald’s widow, Marina.
 
The Commission, though, focused on George de Mohrenschildt as a colorful, if eccentric, character, steering away every time de Mohrenschildt recounted yet another name from a staggering list of influential friends and associates. In the end, the commission simply concluded in its final report that these must all be coincidences and nothing more.
 
The de Mohrenschildts, the Commission said, apparently had nothing to do with the assassination.
 
 
George and Jeanne de Mohrenschildt
 

Even the Warren Commission counsel who questioned George de Mohrenschildt appeared to acknowledge that the Russian émigré was what might euphemistically be called an "international businessman."
 
For most of his adult life, de Mohrenschildt had traveled the world ostensibly seeking business opportunities involving a variety of natural resources - some, such as oil and uranium, of great strategic value.
 
The timing of his overseas ventures was remarkable. Invariably, when he was passing through town, a covert or even overt operation appeared to be unfolding - an invasion, a coup, that sort of thing.
 
For example, in 1961, as exiled Cubans and their CIA support team prepared for the Bay of Pigs invasion in Guatemala, George de Mohrenschildt and his wife passed through Guatemala City on what they told friends was a month-long walking tour of the Central American isthmus.
 
On another occasion, the de Mohrenschildts appeared in Mexico on oil business just as a Soviet leader arrived on a similar mission - and even happened to meet the Communist official. In a third instance, they landed in Haiti shortly before an unsuccessful coup against its president that had U.S. fingerprints on it.

A Russian-born society figure was a friend both of the family of President Kennedy and his assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald.
 
A series of strange coincidences providing the only known link between the two families before Oswald fired the shot killing Mr. Kennedy in Dallas a year ago was described in testimony before The Warren Commission by George S. de Mohrenschildt.

He was actually much more intriguing - and mystifying.
 
As Norman Mailer noted in his book Oswald’s Tale, de Mohrenschildt possessed,
"an eclecticism that made him delight in presenting himself as right-wing, left-wing, a moralist, an aristocrat, a nihilist, a snob, an atheist, a Republican, a Kennedy lover, a desegregationist, an intimate of oil tycoons, a bohemian, and a socialite, plus a quondam Nazi apologist, once a year."

 
 
A Name Never Dropped

During all these examinations, and notwithstanding de Mohrenschildt’s offhand recitation of scores of friends and colleagues, obscure and recognizable, he scrupulously never mentioned that he knew Poppy Bush.
 
Nor did investigators uncover the fact that in the spring of 1963, immediately after his final communication with Oswald, de Mohrenschildt had traveled to New York and Washington for meetings with CIA and military intelligence officials.
 
He even had met with a top aide to Vice President Johnson. And the commission certainly did not learn that one meeting in New York included Thomas Devine, then Bush’s business colleague in Zapata Offshore, who was doing double duty for the CIA.

Had the Warren Commission’s investigators comprehensively explored the matter, they would have found a phenomenal and baroque back-story that contextualizes de Mohrenschildt within the extended petroleum-intelligence orbit in which the Bushes operated.
 
 
 

Getting America Into World War I

The de Mohrenschildts were major players in the global oil business since the beginning of the twentieth century, and their paths crossed with the Rockefellers and other key pillars of the petroleum establishment.
 
George de Mohrenschildt’s uncle and father ran the Swedish Nobel Brothers Oil Company’s operations in Baku, in Russian Azerbaijan on the southwestern coast of the Caspian Sea.
 
This was no small matter. In the early days of the twentieth century, the region held roughly half of the world’s known oil supply. By the start of World War I, every major oil interest in the world, including the Rockefellers’ Standard Oil, was scrambling for a piece of Baku’s treasure or intriguing to suppress its competitive potential. (Today, ninety years later, they are at it again.)

In 1915, the czar’s government dispatched a second uncle of George de Mohrenschildt, the handsome young diplomat Ferdinand von Mohrenschildt, to Washington to plead for American intervention in the war - an intervention that might rescue the czarist forces then being crushed by the invading German army.
 
President Woodrow Wilson had been reelected partly on the basis of having kept America out of the war.
 
But as with all leaders, he was surrounded by men with their own agendas. A relatively close-knit group embodying the nexus of private capital and intelligence-gathering inhabited the highest levels of the Wilson administration.
 
Secretary of State Robert Lansing was the uncle of a diplomat-spy by the name of Allen Dulles.
 
Wilson’s closest adviser, "Colonel" Edward House, was a Texan and an ally of the ancestors of James A. Baker III, who would become Poppy Bush’s top lieutenant. Czarist Russia then owed fifty million dollars to a Rockefeller-headed syndicate.
 
Keeping an eye on such matters was the U.S. ambassador to Russia, a close friend of George Herbert Walker’s from St. Louis.

Once the United States did enter the war, Prescott Bush’s father, Samuel Bush, was put in charge of small arms production.
 
The Percy Rockefeller-headed Remington Arms Company got the lion’s share of the U.S. contracts. It sold millions of dollars worth of rifles to czarist forces, while it also profited handsomely from deals with the Germans.

In 1917, Ferdinand von Mohrenschildt’s mission to bring America into the world war was successful on a number of levels. Newspaper clippings of the time show him to be an instant hit on the Newport, Rhode Island, millionaires’ circuit. He was often in the company of Mrs. J. Borden Harriman, of the family then befriending Prescott Bush and about to hire Prescott’s future father-in-law, George Herbert Walker.
 
 Not long after that, Ferdinand married the step-granddaughter of President Woodrow Wilson.

In quick succession, the United States entered World War I, and the newlywed Ferdinand unexpectedly died.
 
The von Mohrenschildt family fled Russia along with the rest of the aristocracy. Emanuel Nobel sold half of the Baku holdings to Standard Oil of New Jersey, with John D. Rockefeller Jr. personally authorizing the payment of $11.5 million.
 
Over the next couple of decades, members of the defeated White Russian movement, which opposed the Bolsheviks and fought the Red Army from the 1917 October Revolution until 1923, would find shelter in the United States, a country that shared the anti-Communist movement’s ideological sentiments.
 
 
What the von Mohrenschildts escaped.

 
 
 

Bush and de Mohrenschildt Families - Deeply Intertwined

In 1920, Ferdinand’s nephew Dimitri von Mohrenschildt, the older brother of George, arrived in the United States and entered Yale University.
 
His admission was likely smoothed by the connections of the Harriman family, which soon persuaded the Bolshevik Russian government to allow them to reactivate the Baku oilfields.
 
At that point, the Harriman operation was being directed by the brilliant international moneyman George Herbert Walker, the grandfather of Poppy Bush.

The Soviets had expropriated the assets of the Russian ruling class, not least the oil fields.
 
Though ultimately willing to cooperate with some Western companies, the Communists had created an army of angry White Russian opponents, who vowed to exact revenge and regain their holdings. This group, trading on an American fascination with titles, was soon ensconced in (and often intermarried with) the East Coast establishment.
 
The New York newspapers of the day were full of reports of dinners and teas hosted by Prince This and Count That at the top of Manhattan hotels.

Dimitri von Mohrenschildt plunged into this milieu. After graduating from Yale, he was offered a position teaching the young scions of the new oil aristocracy at the exclusive Loomis School near Hartford, Connecticut, where John D. Rockefeller III was a student (and his brother Winthrop soon would be).
 
There, Dimitri became friendly with Roland and Winifred "Betty" Cartwright Holhan Hooker, who were prominent local citizens.
 
Roland Hooker was enormously well connected; his father had been the mayor of Hartford, his family members were close friends of the Bouviers (Jackie Kennedy’s father’s family), and his sister was married to Prince Melikov, a former officer in the Imperial Russian Army.

While Dimitri von Mohrenschildt clearly enjoyed the high-society glamour, in reality his life was heading underground.
 
Dimitri’s lengthy covert résumé would include serving in the Office of Strategic Services wartime spy agency and later cofounding Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty. In 1941, Dimitri also founded a magazine, the Russian Review, and later became a professor at Dartmouth.

When the Hooker marriage unraveled, Dimitri began seeing Betty Hooker. In the summer of 1936, immigration records show that Dimitri traveled to Europe, followed a week later by Betty Hooker with her young daughter and adolescent son.

Betty’s son, Edward Gordon Hooker, entered prep school at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts.
 
There, he shared a small cottage with George H. W. "Poppy" Bush. Bush and Hooker became inseparable. They worked together on Pot Pourri, the student yearbook, whose photos show a handsome young Poppy Bush and an even more handsome Hooker.
 
The friendship would continue in 1942, when both Bush and Hooker, barely eighteen, enlisted in the Navy and served as pilots in the Pacific. Afterward, they would be together at Yale. When Hooker married, Poppy Bush served as an usher.
 
The relationship between Bush and Hooker lasted for three decades, until 1967, when Hooker died of an apparent heart attack. He was just forty-three.
 
Six years after Hooker’s death, Poppy Bush would serve as surrogate father, giving away Hooker’s daughter at her wedding to Ames Braga, scion of a Castro-expropriated Cuban sugar dynasty.
 
 
 

Another Careful Disconnect

The relationship couldn’t have been much closer.
 
Yet Bush never mentions Hooker in his memoirs or published recollections, even though he finds room for scores of more marginal figures. Certainly his family was aware of Hooker.

Poppy’s prep school living arrangements would have mattered to Prescott Bush. The Bush clan is famously gregarious, and like many wealthy families, it puts great stock in the establishment of social networks that translate into influence and advantage. Prescott took a strong interest in meeting his children’s friends and the friends’ parents, as expressed in family correspondence and memoirs.
 
Moreover, as a prominent Connecticut family with deep colonial roots, the Hookers would have had great appeal for Prescott Bush, an up-and-coming Connecticut resident with political aspirations and a great interest in the genealogy of America’s upper classes.

In 1937, Betty Hooker and Dimitri von Mohrenschildt married.
 
By then, Dimitri had been hired by Henry Luce as a stringer for Time magazine. Prescott would likely have been keen to know his son’s roommate’s stepfather - this intriguing Russian anti-Communist aristocrat, with a background in the oil business and a degree from Yale, working for Prescott’s Skull and Bones friend Luce.

Meanwhile, Dimitri’s younger brother, George, had been living with their family in exile in Poland, where he finished high school and then joined a military academy and the cavalry. In May 1938, George arrived from Europe and moved in with his brother and new sister-in-law in their Park Avenue apartment.
 
Young George de Mohrenschildt came to America armed with the doctoral dissertation that reflected the future trajectory of his life: "The Economic Influence of the United States on Latin America."
 
The oil south of the border was certainly of interest to Wall Street figures such as Prescott Bush and his colleagues, who were deeply involved in financing petroleum exploration in new areas.
 
 
 

From Émigré to Spy

The White Russian émigrés in the United States were motivated by both ideology and economics to serve as shock troops in the growing cold war conflict being managed by Prescott’s friends and associates.
 
No one understood this better than Allen Dulles, the Wall Street lawyer, diplomat, and spy-master-in ascension.
 
Even in the period between the two world wars, Dulles was already molding Russian émigrés into intelligence operatives. He moved back and forth between government service and Wall Street lawyering with the firm Sullivan and Cromwell, whose clients included United Fruit and Brown Brothers Harriman.
 
The latter was at that time led by Averell and Roland Harriman and Prescott Bush.
 
 
W. Averell Harriman
 

Whether in government or out, Dulles’s interests and associates were largely the same.
 
He seemed to enjoy the clandestine work more than the legal work.
 
As Peter Grose notes in Gentleman Spy: The Life of Allen Dulles, he worked during the 1940 presidential campaign to bring Russian, Polish, and Czechoslovak émigrés into the Republican camp.
"Allen’s double life those first months after Pearl Harbor [in 1941] had specific purpose, of course," Grose observes. "The mysterious émigrés he was cultivating in New York were potential assets for an intelligence network to penetrate Nazi Germany."
Dimitri von Mohrenschildt was a star player in this game on a somewhat exalted level.
 
He found sponsorship for a role as an academic and publisher specializing in anti-Bolshevik materials, and later became involved in more ambitious propaganda work with Radio Liberty and Radio Free Europe.
 
Younger brother George was more willing to get his hands dirty.
 
He took a job in the New York office of a French perfume company called Chevalier Garde, named for the Czar’s most elite troops, the Imperial Horse Guards. His bosses were powerful czarist Russian émigrés, well connected at the highest levels of Manhattan society, who worked during World War II in army intelligence and the OSS.
 
One of them, Prince Serge Obolensky, had escaped Soviet Russia after a year of hiding and became a much-married New York society figure whose wives included Alice Astor.
 
His brother-in-law Vincent Astor was secretly asked by FDR in 1940 to set up civilian espionage offices in Manhattan at Rockefeller Center.
 
Astor was soon joined in this effort by Allen Dulles.

The next stop for George de Mohrenschildt was a home furnishings company.
 
His boss there was a high-ranking French intelligence official, and together they monitored and blocked attempts by the Axis war machine to procure badly needed petroleum supplies in the Americas.
 
Young de Mohrenschildt then traveled to the southwest, where he exhibited still more impressive connections.
 
Ostensibly there to work on oil derricks, he landed a meeting with the chairman of the board of Humble Oil, the Texas subsidiary of Standard Oil of New Jersey, predecessor to Exxon.

The jobs kept becoming more interesting. By the midforties, de Mohrenschildt was working in Venezuela for Pantepec Oil, the firm of William F. Buckley’s family.
 
Pantepec later had abundant connections with the newly created CIA and was deeply involved in foreign intrigue for decades.
 
The Buckley boys, like the Bushes, had been in Skull and Bones, and Bill Buckley, whose conservative intellectual magazine National Review was often politically helpful to Poppy Bush, would in later years admit to a stint working for the CIA himself.

George de Mohrenschildt’s foreign trips - and some of his domestic wanderings as well - drew the interest of various American law enforcement agencies.
 
These incidents appear to have been deliberate provocations, such as his working on "sketches" outside a U.S. Coast Guard station. In many of these cases de Mohrenschildt would be briefly questioned or investigated, the result of which was a dossier not unlike that of Lee Harvey Oswald’s.
 
These files were full of declared doubts about his loyalties and speculation at various times that he might be a Russian, Japanese, French, or German spy. A classic opportunist, he might have been any or all of these.
 
But he also could have simply been an American spy who was creating a cover story.
