Conspiracy Theories and Untold Stories

What brings this topic to mind is the Awan story. Here at c99 we've have been lucky to have Alligator Ed and gulf gal (among others) inform us. It is a spy thriller... Pakistani Spy Ring in the halls of congress tending to the reps computers. Gun and drug trade is involved. And nary a word from corporate media? We have many stories which we don't speak about. Consider 911 with questions about building 7 and the hole in the pentagon not being large enough for an airplane. And for that matter all the assassinations in the sixties. The common thread that seems to run through these so called conspiracy theories is CIA involvement.

sometimes true.jpg

Let's start with the Awan family.

If you're new to the story here's a nice overview...
I'm no purist, so be aware this is a RW anti-hillary site (as opposed to our LW one) -
In this edition of "JW Inside Report," host Jerry Dunleavy joins Luke Rosiak, an investigative reporter for The Daily Caller's to discuss the cybersecurity scandal involving multiple members of Congress, including Debbie Wasserman Shultz. A Democratic IT staffer named Imran Awan was arrested last July on charges of bank fraud. He was employed by Shultz and other congressional members. He is also a suspect in a cybersecurity investigation, having been banned from congressional networks in February. In addition, his relatives, also government IT employees, are currently being investigated for alleged involvement in defrauding the federal government as well as compromising sensitive information from congressional servers.

George Webb takes it a step farther and links CIA, guns and drugs to the case. (9 min)

He provides links below his video

So what is going on with the case?
FBI Insider: “It's Rigged From Almost Every Angle”
After 11 months of unexplained court delays, the husband and wife team of Imran and Hina Alvi-Awan will be pleading guilty to federal charges, according to new court documents. At this point, no one knows exactly what the federal charges are. The duo, indicted for bank fraud, are expected in federal court on July 3, 2018 for a plea hearing. I won't believe it until it happens.

George is back explaining how 80% of the witnesses are being turned away by the FBI.

“Until justice rolls down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream.”

and Israel have been working together with the US government/Wall St. for a long time. When I was younger life went on it's boring predictable way. Now you can only count on unpredictability from our seats in the nosebleed section. Not Trump, but the last 35-40 years. Bush2 and Obama were the epitome of NOT acting in a predictable manner, of flipping heads 41 time in a row, of your bread and jam always falling jam side down. It has to be by design.

The neolibs are salivating for a blue wave. If it comes, and I have doubts, it will be telling to see how they act. The r's have wielded power with the thinnest majorities, and Trump and the party have steamrolled through every corner of the government. If the democrats fail to do half of that at least it will put their "agenda" out in the open.

Right now I feel like I'm reliving my thirtyteens all over.

@Snode Look up the "Safari Club", a group of intelligence agencies, to include Israel, US, Saudi Arabia and, I believe, Pakistan. It started during the Carter Administration (not sure if he was in on it, but Zbigniew was). And you can trace almost all of the mischief of the intervening years in the Middle East to it. I'm trying to think who's written about it. It may have been mentioned in Jonathan Marshall and Peter Dale Scott's THE IRAN-CONTRA CONNECTION. You can start here:

Rev. Dr. Barber is awesome! His speech had me jumping up off my chair, yelling "stand!" He is a man filled with a great passion to try to right all the wrongs in this country, very much in the same vein as Dr. King. I see him as trying to continue Dr. King's work.

I first learned about Rev. Dr. Barber when he took a massive public stand against the anti-gay marriage bill in NC. He made a video in which he talked specifically to black people about how discriminating against gays is no different than discriminating against blacks. At that time, many black churches were actually for the anti gay marriage bill, so Rev. Dr. Barber's stand was in the face of most black religious institutions in NC. Discrimination is discrimination! Then he began the Moral Monday movement which I believe has formed the precursor to the Poor People's campaign.

I highly recommend to everyone to watch his speech beginning around the 1 hour 22 minute mark or shortly thereafter, in the linked video. Unfortunately there is no embed code for this video, but here is the link again. https://www.facebook.com/anewppc/videos/1735225803240254/

I think Luke has done some excellent reporting on the Awan spy scandal, but I disagree with him on one thing. He seems to think the main reason for the Democratic stonewall on the Awans has to do with elections. That many be a factor, but I seriously doubt that it is the main reason.

Until recently no one in Congress on either side of the aisle seemed to care about the Awans exfiltrating terabits of data from the House to who knows where. This scandal did not break yesterday. We have known about it for over a year. It was not until Imran Awan and Hina Alvi were indicted for bank fraud (a minor charge compared to spying), that anyone was even aware of this scandal.

I believe that there is far more to this than just a bunch of Pakistanis stealing data from House members, including those serving on Homeland Security and Foreign Affairs Committees. First, not one member who employed the Awans had a background check done.

This is absolutely appalling because I personally have been there in a far lesser situation with my own employment in local government. All new employees were required to undergo a background check. I retired with a spotless record of 31 years. Eighteen months later, my former department called and asked if I would be interested in coming back part time on a temporary basis. Here is the kicker. I had to undergo a new background check to come back to the same office I had worked in for over 31 years. There were no exceptions on background checks.

However, in regard to Imran Awan and the rest of his spy cohorts, none were ever required to undergo a background check. Imran Awan was granted the highest employee security clearance in order to work for members of those two very sensitive committees. It is unfathomable that no one at any level required Imran Awan to undergo a background check.

Second, Hina Alvi was allowed to leave the US with more cash on her person than is legally permitted. She was stopped at the airport and found to be carrying said cash, but was allowed to leave along with the cash she had.

In March 2017, FBI agents were tailing House of Representatives IT aides suspected of hacking Congress, and apprehended one at the airport trying to make a hasty exit to Pakistan. She refused to speak with them, and a search revealed that she was carrying an apparently illegal amount of cash.

The FBI allowed Hina Alvi, wife of Imran Awan, to board the plane anyway — then filed paperwork saying agents believed she had no intention of returning to the U.S.

Third, when Imran Awan was arrested for bank fraud, Chris Gowan, Bill Clinton's personal attorney and a former Hillary Clinton advisor immediately became Awan's attorney. Since then, Imran Awan's trial on said bank fraud charges has be postponed several times. The bank fraud case is not a complex one.

What this points to for me is that the Awans are being protected by people very high up and powerful, beyond just the Democratic party. For this reason, I believe that there is far more to this story than what we see on the surface. IMHO, the Awans were not just working against the US government, but were working with persons and agencies of the US government.

As Lookout said, most of us are seeking the truth. The idea of left and right has been turned upside down and inside out as far as the politicians who run this country go. It has no real meaning any more. They are working for the same masters with only slight shades of variation as far as their rhetoric goes.

I have been posting for some time now that we must forget the old labels and learn to work together because the vast majority of us are being used and impoverished by the globalists. Occupy helped me to better define where I personally stand as far as that goes. The old left/right or Democrat/Republican or liberal/conservative paradigms have been used to keep we the people divided against one another. This is so the oligarchy can continue to fleece us and the environment until there is nothing left for we the people.

So for me, it is about who cares about humans versus who cares about money. I am hoping the humanists win.

@gulfgal98 @lookout
still living in the old times, when - at least in Germany (that is in the sixties and seventies) - being left wing and being right wing had meaning. I understand that these times are gone. Too much has changed. I think in Europe it still has more meaning than in the US, where everything is muddled and mixed and talked into something that can always be right no matter what it is. Indeed I believe left wing has no meaning in the US and right wing it has been anyway, so there is no use in mentioning it. I won't bother anymore with it. At least I try. But I am like an old mule, stubborn and difficult to teach and unwilling to learn too. May be one day I will be back and can do the things I thought I could do.

But to me there are some US intellectuals who I consider being left. I am at a loss. My apologies for saying it's a waste to comment here, if ... etc., I just don't know how to understand something else than left and right, it confuses me if I don't recognize one side or the other and then it's better I don't say anything and don't comment.

thank you for this great essay. I am arriving late with great excitement but little time to respond or to access all your links. I hope to look at all of them very soon.

In answer to your exchange with gulfgal98, I especially wanted to praise her statement:

I began to realize that the people pulling the strings are globalists who care very little about country other than as a means to achieve their global objectives.

This is the conspiracy theory that I think is most substantial, that the military industrial complex and its clientele are multinational corporations that couldn't care less about the American people or the Uzbekistan people or anyone else.

I come from the perspective of having read Antony Sutton, who documented U.S. corporations developing Soviet military industrial resources from the revolutionary period onward, and Charles Higham, who documented those same exact companies arming Hitler for the duration of WWII.

So I would say, one of the most exciting, spine-tingling moments in my theorizing life came when I read some of the research of Bill Simpich, who documented the CIA files on Lee Harvey Oswald, especially his activities in the Soviet Union. In these files Simpich noticed the CIA also had files on another American defector who worked for a U.S. military contractor and who defected at almost the exact same time as Oswald, like weeks apart, and returned to the United States also just weeks apart. They looked quite a lot alike, Oswald and this guy Webster. And they were about the same age, height, and weight. And in their files the age, height, and weight notes sometimes interchanged.

The researcher, Simpich, doesn't quite know what to make of this. So he guesses it had to do with the CIA's James Angleton's method of finding moles. But if you've read Antony Sutton, you know exactly what to make of this. Sutton's work is about how U.S. corporations extended military industrial technology to the Soviet Union through deceptive and illegal means, and this action on the part of the CIA exemplifies that activity.

So, in making this too brief to work it out, I will just say, that the Awans being allowed to come and go and spill beans all over the place is standard operating procedure if you're working for the military industrial operational front, the CIA, in order to extend military secrets to the enemies of the United States. It's what they do.

@Lookout with David DeGraw was excellent. DeGraw has been tracking Pentagon waste for some time and after seeing this interview, you have to wonder why it has been allowed to go on for so long.

Waste = Corruption. Our nation is incredibly corrupt.
