Note: I am only leaving this up as a reminder of how far I’ve grown.
Before I begin, I just wanted to take the time to explain the objective of this planned series. I had originally tried to lump everything into a couple of posts and had already written a first part. The problem was there was too many connections. It was getting confusing and to the few people I had shown, if you weren’t involved with the research, it was hard to follow. This can be attributed to two things: The inability of the media to report fairly and the bias that is instilled due to party politics, which blind us to the full story. I plan on trying to bridge that gap and bring forward the geopolitical aspects behind the mess that occurred before, during, and after the 2016 election. While I may not get the full story down, I hope “raise the altitude” of anyone trying to figure this puzzle out by getting them to see how this is much bigger than the current narrative of spying on Trump’s campaign.
If you are familiar with some of my past posts, I had always believed that there was some sort of Genesis that would eventually lead up to the events that unfolded in 2016 and beyond. There are several ties between some of the major players involved in the Spygate scandal and events of the past. The main countries from the media narrative in Spygate are the US and Russia, but as you start digging into the story, you will see how Europe, Russia, Turkey, the Middle East, parts of Africa, China, and Australia tie into the bigger picture.
If we want to limit the connections to just the two presidential candidates in 2016, the connections are overwhelming. Hillary Clinton was the former first lady. She was then Senator of New York. After losing the 2008 Democratic Primary to future President Barack Obama, she was nominated to be Secretary of State for Obama’s first term. Some have theorized that this all began in 2001 with Bill Clinton’s controversial pardon of Glencore’s Founder Marc Rich. Other’s can argue that it goes back to Bill Clinton’s 1994 signing of NAFTA into law. NAFTA had allowed China to begin taking over our manufacturing industry which will come into play later down the road.
After Bill Clinton’s second term had ended, George W. Bush was elected president. Some events from Bush’s administration that helped push the snowball down the hill. One of the first event’s was after the tragic 9/11 attacks on US Soil, the US responded to increase security measures with the passing of the Patriot Act. Passed on October 26, 2001, the Patriot Act was broken up into 10 parts that increased US surveillance capabilities. These 10 parts include enhancing domestic security against terrorism, surveillance procedures, anti-money laundering, border security, removing obstacles to investigate terrorism, victims and families of victims of terrorism, increased information sharing, terrorism criminal law, improved intelligence, and miscellaneous. The US Patriot Act was so controversial that it led to a March 2004 hospital bedside showdown where AG John Ashcroft, who was recovering from gall bladder surgery was being pressured to renew the secret US surveillance act, Stellar Wind, which was formed after the 9/11 attacks. DAG James Comey, who would eventually be the head of the FBI during Spygate, and FBI Director Robert Mueller, who would eventually be the head of the Special Council, were called in to protect AG Ashcroft from signing the act. They all had threatened to resign until President Bush listened to them and made modifications based on their recommendations. The Patriot Act, in 2015, would be amended to President Obama’s Freedom Act which made further changes to the FISA process that would be used to spy on Carter W. Page, a member of Trump’s foreign policy team.
The decision to include China into the Word Trade Organization was another decision by the Bush Administration that helped lead up to Spygate. China had already been growing since the NAFTA deal had been signed. By initiating China into the WTO, it allowed Western Intelligence to get a peak behind the curtain of the trade practices of China. I believe this to the be the reason why China was included, but in hindsight, it looks like the plan backfired. The US trade deficit increased with China and their GDP exploded causing them to become the superpower they are today. While the US is a democratic, capitalist country, the communist regime of China removes the red tape which causes faster growth.
After 9/11, the US response to the attacks was the War in Iraq and Afghanistan. In Carter Page’s efforts to tell the story on how he was a victim, he hammers that the dossier that was used to obtain his FISA warrant is the Dodgy Dossier 2.0. What was the first dodgy dossier? A collection of memos, known as the Iraq Dossier, that stated that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. These claims would later be appear to be false as no weapons of mass destruction have been publicly announced.
One small piece of information that could be related as well was the disappearance of Robert Levinson. He was a CIA asset who went missing on March 9, 2007 in Iran. He had retired from the FBI in 1998 and was known for his fearless attitude in his attempt to take down Russian mob boss, Semion Mogilevich. The connection to Spygate is several fold. First he had relations with fellow Russian Dmytro Firtash, who owns SCL Group, which will come further down the line when connecting Cambridge Analytica, Alfa Bank, Robert Mercer, Donald Trump, and Brexit. What is more interesting is the players who were involved in the recovery effort that started in 2008 of Robert Levinson have an overlap with players who were involved with Spygate. Jeff Carlson at the Epoch Time’s does a great job bridging most of these connections here. That entire article should be considered part of this paragraph. In short: Bruce Ohr, Andrew McCabe, Oleg Deripaska, Paul Manafort, and Adam Waldman all have ties to Levinson and Spygate. While I am unsure how or if Levinson fits in, the overlap of players shows how deep the history goes in the search for The Genesis.
As for Donald Trump’s connections to the past, it would be a disservice to not post this piece that was written in August 10, 2018. Although it is written by someone with an anti-Trump bias, it is well cited and is a great resource to track down connections that were previously unknown to people who support Trump. It helped open my eyes to how this wasn’t a one sided affair and how Donald Trump is more powerful than we originally thought. It also helped cut through the Fake News narrative that Donald Trump is an outsider candidate. While I do not agree with everything in there, if you want to begin to understand the picture, it is necessary to read conclusions from people who have different perspectives.
While everything listed above plays a role, what I have dubbed to be The Genesis was the Hillary Clinton’s Private Email Server during Hillary Clinton’s time as Secretary of State. To be revealed in future parts, this breach in our intelligence communities and extremely careless behavior may have paved the way for what appears to be the massive cover-up that followed. The next part of this series will focus on the server.
