More on the Mandalay Massacre. The government’s story is total BS. I posted a link to this woman yesterday, this is more detailed. The gun shots may not have done any damage to the hotel, I can’t get that straight so far. One video it seemed ‘yes’, the other it seemed ‘no’.

Some of the lower floor windows were service access to the outside, so they opened.

Youtube is definitely removing videos. The 5th of these recounts the CIA’s role in the Anthrax attacks just after 9/11. I must admit, I didn’t know about SAJ, the group originally blamed for the anthrax attacks. Mossad and CIA have been working together for a long time :

The RussiaGate insanity just keeps getting more insane.  This from Naked Capitalism today.  I rarely link to anything I have not read, but I didn’t read any of these. What could I learn, except that they do good propaganda that is killing their credibility :

Is Facebook spinning out of control over Russian revelations? FT. “3,000 political ads.” As opposed to $4.4 billion of TV ads, and 489,142 airings from Clinton between June 8 and October 30, 2016. Somebody’s in the wrong business….

Google uncovers Russian-bought ads on YouTube, Gmail and other platforms WaPo. “[T]ens of thousands of dollars were spent on ads.” Holy moley! Robbie Mook had over a billion! You’d think he’d have been able to squelch a five-figure spend by accident!

How Putin’s Russia uses Soviet-era tricks to evoke racist white fears WaPo. “We still don’t know exactly how any of these social media efforts informed Americans’ voting choices in 2016.” Sorry to lose my patience, here, but: It’s fascinating to watch all the Clintonite exculpatory narratives gradually merging… On the bright side, since Russian outside agitators are now responsible for stoking American’s divisions over race, all we have to do is go to war with them, and problem solved!

Un-mitigated BS. ‘Not all clocks are in sync’. No, it is a digital age, and all clocks are in sync. Every bit of every communication is time stamped to great precision, there are specifications for all of it, and those are used for every single item of police equipment and security equipment a casino would use. Prosecution and casino would lose cases otherwise. Who can believe such nonsense?

The Mandalay Massacre was a false flag operation. We can’t know much more than that at this point, but there can be no way the story makes sense, even ignoring all the stuff we know they are covering up. There must be much more we don’t know about that they are also hiding. JTTF guy is running the investigation, married to John Podesta’s daugher. CIA-Deep State links galore.

We can be sure we are hearing every morsel of info that supports their story, yet the story is not supported.

The 2nd link is another multi-video analysis of what parts of the crowd reacted before obvious sounds of shots, more evidence of multiple shooters. The numerology is unfortunate :

Daily Reading #1CD

James Fetzer Professor Emeritus discusses the Las Vegas massacre. Excellent debunking of the official story. Paddock was a patsy, bet he never fired a shot, including the one that killed him. The security system for the Mandalay was not enabled that day!!

I had already forgotten Assange’s statement that the threat to the US is not Russia, it is Israel. Excellent review of the many false flags we have endured. Yes, Trump is compromised in some way, there is no other explanation for why there have been no prosecutions, why Sessions is inert. Fetzer goes into the long trail of evidence that Israel has with false flags.

The second of these is the kind of audio analysis I expected to see, tho I don’t know enough to evaluate the meaning of the different frequency spectra. Also, his assumption of the same caliber and cartridge for all the shooters is probably wrong, but could be extracted from spectral analysis, I think. Nevertheless this is a big step to understanding the meaning of the many audio recordings :

Daily Reading #1CC

Trish Negron is a fine journalist. This is an excellent summary of the George Webb investigation :

https://medium.com/@panegron/the-accidental-journalist-part-vii-awancontra-77935c904aa9

Mixed motives of the CIA.  They can’t resist making $ off of the False Flags, which leaves evidence. The Las Vegas massacre is now certainly a conspiracy with more people than Paddock involved. He was a patsy.

I read a comment on one of the articles I linked to saying that the people who plan these things don’t care if people understand that it was planned, so long as there is nothing definite. That understanding, that shadowy powers control things, leaves people feeling even more confused and helpless.

One of the big problems in understanding these events is the fact that witnesses are not reliable, especially those who go on camera early to direct the story line. False witnesses are a standard part of these operations.

I agree with George Webb, the hard data from automated systems is the most reliable way to understand what happened. Thus, the insider trading is the hardest evidence that this was a planned operation. The probable multiple shooters is much less certain. The multiple guns firing at the same time is suggestive, but I haven’t see a serious analysis of that yet, and it is also easily controlled, e.g. one of the videos I saw showed noise makers that sound exactly like an automatic weapon. I think a signal analysis could tell the difference, but likely needs a high-quality recording.

The lockdowns at the other hotels, the reports of multiple shooters on police radio, even the one eye-witness of a man shot at the Belagio are all less reliable, merely suggestive, without a serious interrogation of the witness.

Less hard, but serious, evidence is how hard it apparently is to get information about the investigation. By this time, autopsies have produced the bullets and the authorities supposedly have all of the guns which were fired. By this time, the bullets landing in the ground have been found and the direction of the sources identified. Among many other items of evidence, of which we hear zip. Add to that the fact that so many videos are being taken down by Youtube, always a sign of something serious.

Provisionally, Las Vegas was a planned event because the government’s story doesn’t fit with the known facts. They could change my mind by presenting all of the evidence, including explanations for the insider trading, but that has not ever happened in these suspect events, they go on being ‘conspiracy theory’ in our legacy media, and accepted as fact by the rest of us :

Wind speed is decreasing, another new variable in climate research, the climate models must therefore be inaccurate. “But wind speed is a dependent variable” someone will object. No, weather and climate are complex systems, all causes are effects and vice versa. Wind speed may be completely determined by temperature, pressure and humidity, earth’s rotation, … but has independent effects on waves and clouds and dust, all affecting albedo, and thus temperature, pressure, humidity.

Hillary Clinton will be tagged with the failure of US diplomacy over the last 20 years. The foreign policy establishment, strongly Israel-Neocon in outlook, have lost every war, every diplomatic initiative. Every country in the ME is changing alliances, all away from the US. Except for Israel, which was never a real ally, Israel is the ultimate ‘out for #1″ country. Israel is losing also, nobody trusts it, their support has probably doomed an independent Kurdistan :

Also, the loss of allies in Korea, Japan, the Philippines and likely the rest of Asia. Only India’s fear of China keeps it from joining the Silk Road project, and the US has decided Pakistan has been too much like Israel, out for #1, so is making noise about ending that alliance. Some of the reality there is that ISI personnel are being used to run many of the ratlines producing the CIA’s black budget, and so our government is trying to distance itself from that, to put the blame entirely on Pakistan. It won’t work, Clinton will be assigned blame for that. On the current path, our government will have no allies and maximum enemies at exactly the point we can no longer fund any military outside of US borders.

Combine this with the info I read a day or so ago that the $30B in a 10-year aid package to Israel was actually forcing them to buy from US military suppliers rather than to develop their own equivalents, you get the idea that the F-35 is not the only ultra-expensive albatross produced by our MIC :

Robert Gore is normally an excellent thinker, but here is just another cultural conservative, conflating organized religion with morality producing trust as a requirement for a civilized nation state. Organized religion, mass religion, is a new thing in the world, civilization is much older, as are nation states. What is missing in modern life is community and the honesty and trust of an inter-dependent community. Indeed, churches were once a major part of community, and that is gone, but it isn’t the church we need, except as a component of the community. I don’t think mega-churches are a substitute for churches in community. A proper nation state is a bottom-up structure, beginning with the community, the place people have the most skin in the game. The Catalan experience, which I read immediately after Gore, illustrates that :

Are all of the cell towers down in Puerto Rico? I keep hearing about the scale of the disaster, how badly the electrical grid was damaged, but that doesn’t directly translate to people starving or going without medical care. Are there no civil society efforts to check the 11 story buildings to see if people need help? Many alarming claims from people with opaque motives, not much evidence. The 2nd here shows that the problem has been management, others I have read cite corruption.

However, the situation in a 3rd-world nation is very, very different from what we are used to, so we don’t have the context to judge anything . I had a small amount of experience dealing with telcos in the Philippines. The electrical and phone wiring are chaotic with more palm trees than telephone poles, which must be concrete. They have no idea what is buried anywhere, so any change is difficult and expensive. Wireless telephony was a godsend, wireless E1s even better. Tesla’s wireless power transmission is greatly needed :

There are many diseases that could increase death rates around the world dramatically at the slightest decline in civilization, e.g. an inability to develop and distribute new antibiotics and other medicines into the areas needed to prevent their spread to first-world nations. Oh, wait :

Jason Goodman and the Crowd Source The Truth group mind continue their investigations, this first a discussion with Lee Stranahan and Mr. Hudson, also a discussion of the evidence wrt the Las Vegas massacre. Mr. Paddock likes shooting automatic weapons, had a lot of experience doing that at one of the Las Vegas shooting ranges. Stranahan is wrong about Sandy Hook, that is a proven hoax, proven by how hard they work to prevent releasing every bit of evidence, very much contrary evidence and an absolute absence of evidence of any death. Easily provable in a court of law, which has not been allowed to happen :

There is much more discussion of late wrt devolution, breaking large political units into smaller ones. If we wanted to maximize our future, we would unleash evolution by breaking the US into sovereign counties, 3500 of them. That would also eliminate all of the subsidies which prevent intelligent planning :

This is an answer to the problem of whether we exist in a simulation. (My 21-year-old 7th-grade dropout son cogently explained the argument that we probably do when I asked him if he knew about it. Think how knowledgeable he will be when he finally finishes his GED.) “You can’t simulate it with current algorithms” depends on a proof that there are no better algorithms possible, so this is a half step :

The Economist is an advocate of the Status Quo, love regulations. All we need do is give people ownership of their own data and what they create. That will keep the balance of power far better than more regulations. The writer should be embarrassed to have proposed that, however conventional the thought, as there are so very many studies of all the ways it does not work and so many examples of failures of the model, so few examples of regulations actually accomplishing what the authors intended :

I certainly hope that the paper behind this article was more rigorous in thought than the article, because, so far as I can see, there is no objective measure of anything except the light intensity at night. Without that, you might suppose that China has less outside lighting, or some other factor, that changes the constant they use to translate light intensity to economic activity :

Israel is bad for Jews, bad for the world. My country is so stupid in its choice of allies. Israel is only one of many such examples, the Saudis are equally stupid. How did we allow this to happen to us and the world?.

Much as I like Abby Martin, she sees everything as some variety of Left/Right, what she thinks of as the driving intellectual and moral forces making history. I think it is more likely the ebb and flow of mafias making use of those as needed. Israel’s Mossad is effectively one of those mafias, and their mafias are as bad for Israel as ours are for the rest of us.

Why are we citizens of the world putting up with this shit? :
