🐙THE BAY OF PIGS

“On April 17, 1961, 1,400 Cuban exiles launched what became a botched invasion at the Bay of Pigs on the south coast of Cuba.”

It’s actually much more complicated than this headline portends.

I will dive more deeply into the CIA/mob’s role in Op Mongoose.
First read this article for a sanitized overview.

jfklibrary.org/learn/about-jf…
Read this white paper for a deeper dive.

Pg 29 onward to see where the op went sideways re issues about the planes issues (nosecones didn’t match Cuban planes) & Kennedy’s order to call off the air support for the Cuban exiles waiting on the beach head.

Some CNP members - Mike Pence comes quickly to mind - in the context of bolstering their conservative credentials, have proudly revealed their CNP membership, even though CNP's policy is to keep membership a secret. Here is it's 2014 Membership, the latest splcenter.org/sites/default/…

Time for a story. Pull up a chair, if you'd like.

In July 1979, I shipped to Marine Corps Boot Camp in San Diego. I graduated October 27, 1979.

On November 4, 1979, Iranian 'students' stormed the US Embassy in Iran and took 52 American citizens hostage.
They held them for 444 days, releasing them on the day Ronald Reagan took office, making Jimmy Carter's humiliation (including a failed rescue attempt) complete.

They released them, we believed, because Reagan had promised to make Tehran glow in the dark.
Most of us believed Reagan would nuke Iran in a hot minute. I guess Iran believed it too. True? I don't know. My viewpoint was and is probably too simplistic.

This was my introduction to global politics and it featured Iran. Keep this mind if you will. I was very young.

William Casey was due to appear before the HSCI on December 16, 1987. The day before on the 15th, CIA physician, Dr. Arvel Tharp went to visit Casey in his office. According to Tharp, while he was being examined, Casey suffered
seizure. He was taken to Georgetown University Hospital and was not able to appear before the HSCI. Tharp told Casey he had a brain tumor and that he would have to have an operation. Casey asked if he could have radio therapy instead. However, Tharp was insistent that he needed
surgery.

Casey entered the operating room on 18th December. The tumor was removed but during the operation, brain cells were damaged and Casey lost his ability to speak. As his biographer, Joseph E. Persico, points out (The Lives and Secrets of William J. Casey):

THREAD | Iran Contra | PROMIS

For those of you who are following the Jeffrey Epstein/Ghislaine Maxwell spy child trafficking story, you might know that both Epstein and Maxwell are connected to the Iran Contra scandal via
a couple of channels; one which can easily be traced is Leslie Wexner. Wexner was the point man in Ohio that the CIA used to move Southern Air Transport (Iran Contra) from Miami to Ohio.

Also involved in the Iran Contra scandal are Manichur Ghorbanifar and Adnan Khashoggi.
Both Manichur Ghorbanifar and Adnan Khashoggi were arms dealers. (As a sidenote: Khashoggi was educated at Ohio State/yes, Wexner again and his sister, Samira married Mohamed Al-Fayed - the mother of Dodi Fayed who died in the car crash that killed Princess Diana).

The Kingdom 5KR (originally named Nabila) is an 85.65-metre (281 ft) superyacht built for Saudi billionaire Adnan Khashoggi

Khashoggi (in #JeffreyEpstein 's book) was a middleman in #IranContra

One of the 1st superyachts w/ helipad

The ship was sold to @realDonaldTrump in 1988
@realDonaldTrump [2] We could have learned a lot about what happened on the yacht from the amazing helicopter pilot (Michael Green) who had the talent back then to land on it

But it appears that the folks behind #Qanon probably had him assassinated, using it as #QProofs
@realDonaldTrump [3] Watch everyone at how little visibility the above Tweet will get. It will never be allowed to get 100 RTs

Twitter supports #Qanon

Twitter wants you blind - Twitter wants you to be a sheep - Twitter wants you to be labeled a violent conspiracy theorist

#BackToTheFuture
Summer 1985
Israel sets off IranContra.
In playing Iran-Iraq against each other. 🇮🇱 ‘s secret arms shipments from Russia thru Poland to Iran (brokered by Robert Maxwell, father of Ghislaine) weren’t cutting it. Israel PM Shimon Peres & Yitzhak Shamir had a plan.
Get their most important asset Robert Maxwell to use John Tower (a powerful US Republican Senator from Texas who sold out to become an Israeli asset for 200k - his own asking price) to “persuade President Reagan to start supplying arms to Iran.”
Nahum Admoni (Dir of Mossad) and David Kimche (Deputy Dir) worked out the logistics. “The request should be presented on the basis that it [would be] the best way to free the American hostages in Beriut.
US involvement would be kept secret.”

I call shenanigans! These poll "results" offered with zero transparency about the foundations of the Polling Pool, and zero information on how they were selected and contacted, absolutely REEK of #OperationMockingbird and opinion steering.
Here's the #DamnedFacts
Construction of Questions matters.

WHO you ask matters

How you contacted them matters A LOT (Emerson used this to keep #StatusQuoJoe "winning")
This last matters because almost the only folks who even have a landline in the US are either over 60 or are/have a medium to large business.
That means the % you contacted via landline WILL skew heavily for the establishment candidates & issue views rather than progressive ones

1. Barr is lying about Rule 6(e). This is a national security case. Rule 6(e)(3)(D) certainly let's him give it to the Committees.

The NRA has deep ties to accused Russian spy Maria Butina (she is a lobbyist not a "spy" but whatever)

Looks like weapons traffickers have been using NRA as a business-finding front for some time

motherjones.com/politics/2018/… via @MotherJones
[2] I am a #2A advocate , and #NRA member . But when it comes to weapons trafficking, that is a no-can-do .

And now we have to face the code-red alarming reality - the current new NRA president is none other than #OliverNorth ... from the days of #IranContra
[3] The Swamp is everywhere

Dont get tripped up:

* The #NRA is not the #2A
* @realDonaldTrump is not "establishment GOP"
* #UraniumOne far worse than guns
* #IranContra / #AwanCOntra included DRUGS -> #OpioidEpidemic
* A few Russians is not a Russian state-sponsored conspiracy

#FridayFeeling Another school shooting. Another round of “thoughts and prayers”. “Mental illness”. “Too soon to talk about gun control” “arm the teachers”. Next mass shooting. Rinse and repeat. Fuck this. I wrote this in 2015 facebook.com/walter.broadna…. Still applies. (1)
But it won’t matter. The carnage will continue. @realDonaldTrump will offer some half-assed non empathetic statement written by one of his Alt-right staffers. @mike_pence will look “earnest” while lying. And the @NRA? gunrunner @OliverNorthNRA will call the victims terrorists
Looking for courageous action among the GOP? @SpeakerRyan? @marcorubio? @tedcruz? All taking @NRA (Russian Oligarchs) money. Don’t count on it.

(2) #AboutStrzok How many #STRZOK family members are there? There are only 100 total Americans out of 300 million with this name . You can Google this. #PeterStrzok must be unique in such a small family, right?
