Hillary Clinton directed U.S. diplomats to spy on and gather DNA of foreign officials

This is weird.

In July 2009, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton issued a classified directive to U.S. diplomats to spy on and gather biometric information — including the DNA, fingerprints and iris scans — of United Nations officials.

DNA double helix

As reported by The Guardian, the UN officials include Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and his aides; undersecretaries; heads of specialized agencies and their chief advisers; heads of peace operations and political field missions, including force commanders; and the permanent Security Council representatives from China, Russia, France and the UK.

The secret “national human intelligence collection directive” was sent to US missions at the UN in New York, Vienna and Rome; 33 embassies and consulates, including those in London, Paris and Moscow. In addition to the State Department, the operation involved all of Washington’s main intelligence agencies — the CIA’s clandestine service, the US Secret Service and the FBI.

The directive came to light when WikiLeaks published classified U.S. diplomatic cables, dated between December 1966 and Februry 2010, which had been sent to the State Department by 274 of its consulates, embassies, and diplomatic missions around the world.

Spying on UN officials is illegal, according to:

  1. The 1946 UN convention on privileges and immunities which states: “The premises of the United Nations shall be inviolable. The property and assets of the United Nations, wherever located and by whomsoever held, shall be immune from search, requisition, confiscation, expropriation and any other form of interference, whether by executive, administrative, judicial or legislative action”.
  2. The 1961 Vienna convention on diplomatic relations, which covers the UN, also states that “the official correspondence of the mission shall be inviolable”.

When asked whether Barack Obama is also responsible for the illegal directive and should resign, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said “the order is so serious it may well have been put to the president for approval”, and that “Obama must answer what he knew about this illegal order and when. If he refuses to answer or there is evidence he approved of these actions, he must resign.”

The UN is not the only target. Since 2008, i.e., the last year of the Bush Administration with Condoleezza Rice as secretary of state, the State Department has issued at least nine directives to embassies around the world. In one directive, Washington ordered staff in Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Uganda to obtain biometric information of leading figures in business, politics, intelligence, military, religion and in key ethnic groups.

What would the U.S. do with the DNA of foreign officials?

Did Obama administration have foreknowledge of 2011 New Zealand earthquake?

“There are no accidents in politics.” — Joseph P. Kennedy‘s remark to a reporter, 1960.

On February 22, 2011, at 12:51 p.m. local time, a 6.3 Richter scale earthquake struck the city of Christchurch, New Zealand’s second-most populous city.

Note: 12: 51 pm on Feb. 22, 2011 in New Zealand was 6:51 pm, February 21, 2011 in Washington, D.C.

The earthquake was New Zealand’s 5th deadliest disaster, killing 185 people and caused widespread damage. In April 2013, the government estimated the total cost of the rebuild would be as much as $40 billion, up from an earlier estimate of $30 billion. Some economists maintain it will take the New Zealand economy 50 to 100 years to completely recover.

In a post on TheContrail, Peter Drew raises the troubling notion that the Obama administration had foreknowledge of the earthquake, based on the following:

(1) Email to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called the earthquake “on cue”:

On February 21, 2018, at 7:32 p.m. ET, 41 minutes after the earthquake struck Christchurch, Jake Sullivan, Hillary’s Deputy Chief of Staff and Director of Policy Planning at the State Department, received an email alert from the State Department’s Operations Center:

From: OpsAlert@state.gov <OpsAlert@state.gov>

Sent: Mon Feb 21 19:32:18 2011
Subject: 6.3 magnitude earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand

There was no immediate confirmation of  injuries or damage to the city from the quake, according to press.

Three minutes after his receipt of the OpsAlert about the earthquake, Sullivan forwarded the email to Hillary Clinton (“H”) and other members of her staff, with a three-word comment, “And on cue”:

From: Sullivan, Jacob J <SullivanJJ@state.gov>
Sent: Monday, February 21, 2011 7:35 PM
To: H; Mills, Cheryl D; Abedin, Hume; Reines, Philippe I
Subject: Fw: 6.3 magnitude earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand

And on cue…

Here’s the screenshot of Sullivan’s email from WikiLeaks:

The dictionary defines “on cue” as:

If you say that something happened on cue or as if on cue, you mean that it happened just when it was expected to happen, or just at the right time.  

(2) U.S. delegates to a US-New Zealand forum fortuitously left 2.5 hours before the earthquake:

The day of the earthquake was the last day of the 2-day US-New Zealand Pacific Partnership Forum (February 21-22) of 200 officials from the U.S. and New Zealand at the AMI Stadium in Christchurch.

Although the forum was supposed to last all day, as reported by NPR, “A group of nine U.S. Congressmen had left the city before the earthquake struck” and relocated to Prime Minister John Key’s office in Wellington.

On February 24, 2011, two days after the earthquake, Northland New Zealand Chemtrails Watch posted a video on the early departure of the nine U.S. Congressmen 2½ hours before the earthquake struck. That video has been taken down by YouTube.

(3) DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano canceled her visit to New Zealand 4 days before the earthquake:

Then-Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano had been invited to address the US-New Zealand Pacific Partnership Forum on February 22.

Four days before her speech, on February 18, Napolitano canceled her visit, using the fatal shooting of a US immigration and customs enforcement agent in Mexico as an excuse.

(4) Coincidentally, the deputy director of FEMA was in Christchurch when the earthquake struck:

Ed O’Keefe reports for the Washington Post, Feb. 22, 2011, 7 p.m. ET:

The White House is deploying a team of disaster-response and urban-search-and-rescue teams to New Zealand in response to the 6.3-magnitude earthquake that rocked the country Tuesday.

They will be greeted there by FEMA Deputy Administrator Timothy W. Manning, who is already in the country assisting with response efforts and is uniquely qualified to do so.

Talk about being in the right place at the right time: Manning is a trained geologist, paramedic and firefighter — the perfect combination for earthquake response. He’s there as part of an American delegation visiting for trade and global security talks and to review the country’s cleanup efforts following a September 7.0-magnitude quake.

Coincidentally, Pentagon’s Southern Command was practicing and running emergency relief drills for a catastrophic event in Haiti the day before the earthquake hit on January 12, 2010 — also during Hillary Clinton’s time as Secretary of State in the Obama administration.

QAnon: John Podesta in ill health; Tony Podesta in custody

John Podesta is a longtime Democratic Party operative who was White House chief of staff in Bill Clinton’s administration, White House counselor in the Obama administration and, most recently, chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Tony Podesta, John’s brother, is a powerful DC-based Democrat lobbyist.

The mysterious Trump Administration insider, Q Anon, posted this about John and Tony Podesta on January 28, 2018:

“John Podesta is in ill health at the moment. Skippy was in a military medical facility till Monday, just left. Waiting to hear where he is right now. His brother is in the lower 48 in Military Custody.

GITMO journeys R 2 get the intel, they are not yet permanent residents. Again, for the record,we have never said they were there permanently.We said they had visits,some for much longer than others.There R so many moving parts that it changes not by day/week but by the minute….

No deals for the people at the very top.”

In early November 2017, it was rumored that Tony Podesta had been indicted and arrested. He had not tweeted (@realTonyPodesta) since June 16, 2017.

You already know about the Podesta brothers’ fondness for a cannibalism painting and their invitation to “artist” Marina Abramovic’s satanic spirit cooking dinner, as well as a hanging sculpture in Tony Podesta’s living room, “The Arch of Hysteria,” which is a homage to how cannibal serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer posed one of his victims.

Here are more “fun” facts about the Podesta brothers:

(1) John Podesta has an alter ego named “Skippy”: He told an interviewer that his hot temper “accounts for the occasional appearance of Skippy, his sarcastic and ill-humored alter ego.” (Politico)

(2) John Podesta likes to slaughter pigs: In that same fawning Politico article (July 10, 2009) by Marian Burros, John Podesta said that while attending law school at Georgetown, to earn money he spent two years working at Turkey Run Farm (now called Claude Moore Colonial Farm) in McLean, VA, where he learned how to butcher and roast a pig. Podesta said:

“It’s best to do the butchering at 4 a.m., because pigs should be slaughtered when it is cool, and it takes a long time to roast them. The pig is hauled on a front-end loader in order to split and gut it. It’s most important to slow the pig down by shooting it between the eyes so you can cut its throat. It makes the pig less ornery and a whole lot more cooperative than if you just stick a knife in its throat.”

Podesta used to have a picture of a pig on a spit as his computer screen saver, but his staffers made him get rid of it, because “They couldn’t stand looking into the pig’s eyes during meetings.”

(3) Tony Podesta once sent an email to John and wife Mary, with the subject “Last night was fun,” referencing a “torture chamber” (source: WikiLeaks):

Podesta torture chamber email

Tell Congress to release the ‘explosive’ FISA memo that’ll put officials in jail!

Update: Full FISA Memo released!!!

Yesterday, January 18, members of the House of Representatives were given a four-page memo, described by journalist Sara Carter as so “shocking” and “explosive”, it could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ), and the end of Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation.

According to ZeroHedge, the memo details the Obama Administration’s abuse of power in ordering a FISA wire-tapping of then-candidate Donald Trump, as well as the administration’s extensive and illegal collusion with the FBI, the DOJ and the Clinton Campaign against Donald Trump during and after the 2016 presidential election.

Note: FISA or the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 is a federal law that establishes procedures for the U.S. government’s physical and electronic surveillance of foreign powers and domestic (U.S.) agents of foreign powers suspected of espionage or terrorism. The Act created the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to oversee requests for surveillance warrants by federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies.

In 2016, the Obama Administration used the “Russian dossier” and its  baseless claim of a Russian-Trump collusion as the pretext for a FISA court-approved surveillance on then-candidate Donald Trump and members of the Trump campaign, including phone- and wire-taps.

Members of the House of Representatives who have seen the memo are calling for its immediate release, including:

  1. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) told Fox News: “It is so alarming the American people have to see this.
  2. Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) said: “Part of me wishes that I didn’t read it because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much.”
  3. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) tweeted: “I have read the memo. The sickening reality has set in. I no longer hold out hope there is an innocent explanation for the information the public has seen. I have long said it is worse than Watergate. It was & .
  4. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) tweeted: “Immediately #ReleaseTheMemo #FISAMemo & ALL relevant material sourced in it. Every American needs to know the truth! We wouldn’t be revealing any sources & methods that we shouldn’t; only feds’ reliance on bad sources & methods.”
  5. Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) tweeted: “The classified report compiled by House Intelligence is deeply troubling and raises serious questions about the upper echelon of the Obama DOJ and Comey FBI as it relates to the so-called collusion investigation. While the report is classified as Top Secret, I believe the select committee should, pursuant to House rules, vote to make the report publicly available as soon as possible. This is a matter of national significance and the American people deserve the truth.”
  6. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), referring to DOJ officials Rod Rosenstein and Bruce Ohr, said, “I believe the consequence of its release will be major changes in people currently working at the FBI and the Department of Justice” and that “people will go to jail“.
  7. According to Sara Carter, a senior government official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the memo, said: “The document shows a troubling course of conduct and we need to make the document available, so the public can see it. Once the public sees it, we can hold the people involved accountable in a number of ways. Some of these people should no longer be in government.

WikiLeaks is offering a reward of up to $1 million for the memo.

A source told Fox News that releasing the memo to the public requires a committee vote and as long as there are no objections from the White House within five days. 

Clearly, the above Congressmen have gone public urging for the release of the memo, hoping that “outside” pressure from the American people could be brought to bear on the House.

Why did U.S. State Department purchase frozen penguin pineal glands from Argentina?

It’s Sunday night. Not much is happening beyond the usual, never-ending political bickering.

Are you in the mood for a mystery?

Among the treasure trove of documents obtained by WikiLeaks is a very curious telegram on August 1, 1973, sent from Buenos Aires, Argentina to the U.S. State Department, concerning the shipment of frozen penguin pineal glands. The telegram says the shipment would arrive in Boston on August 4, 1973.

Below is a screenshot of the telegram:

In August 1973, William P. Rogers was Secretary of State in the Richard Nixon administration.

Penguins are native to the Southern Hemisphere. A common misconception is that penguins are only found in Antarctica. In fact, major populations of penguins are found in Angola, Antarctica, Argentina, Australia, Chile, Namibia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Several penguin species are found in the temperate zone: one species, the Galapagos penguin, lives near the equator!

Two interesting and really cool things about penguins:

  1. Their flippers have at least three branches of the axillary artery. They limit heat loss from flippers by enabling cold blood to be heated by blood that has already been warmed. This system allows penguins to efficiently use their body heat and explains why such small animals can survive in the extreme cold of Antarctica.
  2. Penguins can drink salt water because their supraorbital gland filters excess salt from the bloodstream. The salt is then excreted in a concentrated fluid from the nasal passages.

But why was the U.S. State Department so interested in penguin pineal glands? Searching around the net, this is what I found:

  • The pineal gland is a small endocrine gland in the brains of nearly all vertebrates. The shape of the gland resembles a pine cone, hence the name “pineal gland”. Located in the epithalamus, near the center of the brain between the two hemispheres, the gland is tucked in a groove where the two halves of the thalamus join.
  • From the point of view of evolution, the pineal gland is a kind of atrophied photoreceptor. In the epithalamus of some species of amphibians and reptiles, the gland is linked to a light-sensing organ — the parietal eye, aka pineal or third eye.
  • French philosopher René Descartes believed the pineal gland to be the “principal seat of the soul“.
  • Function: The primary function of the pineal gland is to produce the hormone melatonin, which helps modulate sleep patterns. Since melatonin production is stimulated by darkness and inhibited by light, the long Antarctica winter would mean the pineal glands of Antarctica penguins produce a lot of melatonin. Studies on rodents suggest that melatonin can protect against neurodegeneration.
  • According to a 1975 article in the International Journal of Biometeorology, polar mammals, such as walruses and some seals, possess unusually large pineal glands. The article does not say if polar penguins also have unusually large pineal glands.
  • Pineal glands become calcified — the accumulation of calcium salts. Calcification has been observed in children as young as two years of age, and increases with age. Some studies show that the degree of pineal gland calcification is significantly higher in patients with Alzheimer’s disease vs. other types of dementia.
  • Pineal glands of mammals like rodents contain Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) — a tryptamine molecule that some call “the spirit molecule”. DMT can be consumed as a powerful psychedelic drug and has historically been used by various cultures for ritual and healing purposes. Illegal in most countries, DMT can be inhaled, injected, or orally ingested. A 2014 study found that DMT has immunomodulatory potential that may have significant anti-inflammatory and tissue regeneration effects.

The man behind the $20M impeach Trump campaign and his strange ‘walnut sauce’ email

Just days before the 2016 presidential election, WikiLeaks published a collection of emails sent by and to John Podesta, a longtime Democratic Party operative who was White House chief of staff in Bill Clinton’s administration, White House counselor in the Obama administration and, most recently, chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Thanks to a tip on Voat, a hitherto obscure Podesta email takes on new significance because among its recipients is the man who is funding a $20 million national impeachment campaign against President Trump.

Below is a screenshot of the email, published by WikiLeaks (click to enlarge):

Note:

(1) Tom Steyer, 60, the cc recipient of the above email, is the billionaire Democrat who has launched a $20 million national campaign to impeach President Trump. In a televised video that you may have seen, Steyer calls President Trump “a clear and present danger who is mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons,” who has taken the U.S. “to the brink of nuclear war” and obstructed justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey, among other charges. (See “Billionaire Democrat Tom Steyer launches multi-million$ media campaign to impeach President Trump“)

Steyer’s impeachment campaign is doomed to failure because:

  • The Republican Party has a majority in both houses of Congress.
  • Even Democratic congressional leaders have shown no interest in impeaching Trump.
  • President Trump has neither committed nor been convicted of “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors” — the grounds for impeachment as specified in Section 4 of Article Two of the United States Constitution.

Tom Steyer is also connected to Fusion GPS, the DC-based opposition research firm hired by Hillary Clinton and the DHS during the 2016 presidential campaign to find “dirt” on Donald Trump.

Steyer is said to be considering running for political office. In August 2015, he launched the Fair Shake Commission on Income Inequality and Middle Class Opportunity, purportedly an implicit announcement of candidacy for the 2018 California gubernatorial race. (Lots more on Steyer, the “green” or environmental hypocrite, here.)

(2) Jim Steyer, 61, the sender of the cryptic “walnut sauce” email, is the older brother of Tom Steyer. A child advocate, civil rights attorney, Stanford University professor and author, Jim Steyer is most known for founding Common Sense Media, an organization dedicated to improving media and entertainment lives for kids and families. (Wikipedia)

(3) John Podesta thought the cryptic “walnut sauce” email to be important enough as to forward it to his assistant, Eryn Sepp.

5th survivor of Las Vegas shooting massacre killed in hit & run

Survivors of the October 1 Las Vegas mass shooting — the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history wherein lone gun man Stephen Paddock allegedly killed 58 and injured more than 500 people at the Harvest 91 country music festival — are being killed, one by one.

The latest is Roy McClellan, the fifth survivor to die — not from injuries sustained at the shooting.

KSN.com reports that on November 17, 2017, 52-year-old Roy McClellan was killed in a hit-and-run while hitchhiking on State Route 160 in Pahrump, about 50 miles west of Las Vegas.

The driver of the Chevrolet Camaro fled the scene, leaving McClellan for dead.

According to Fox News on November 26, 2017, “investigators had located the car believed to be involved in the accident and charges were pending.”

McClellan is the fifth survivor to die in incidents unrelated to the Las Vegas shooting. The other four are Kymberley Suchomel, Dennis Carver, Lorraine Carver, and Danny Contreras. What’s the statistical probability of that?

Kymberley Suchomel

On October 9, 2017, about a week after surviving the Las Vegas shooting in which she had not been injured, Kymberley Suchomel, 28, died suddenly in her sleep in her Apple Valley, CA home.

Suchomel was found by her grandmother, Julie Norton, just after 8:30 a.m., who believes Suchomel may have died in her sleep after her husband, Mike, had left for work at 4:30 a.m.

Norton said “Kymberley had epilepsy and she’s always been prone to seizures — she told her friend that she recently had three focal seizures. I believe the stress from the shooting took her life.” (Seacoastonline)

On October 5, 2017, Suchomel wrote on her Facebook page an account of what happened on the night of the shooting, which refers to multiple shooters and firecrackers preceding the gunshots. Although her Facebook page has since been set to private, her account is archived here. She wrote:

“From about 50 feet in front of us, and a little to the right, fire crackers were set off. Let me repeat that… FIRE CRACKERS WERE SET OFF. […] I would say about 15 seconds later, the first volley of gunfire was released. […] But then the 3rd volley hit… and it was close. Very, very close to us. I could physically see the impact of the bullets on the astro-turf, I could feel the warmth & the passing of bullets. […]  The gentlemen that mocked me stating it was just fireworks fell to the ground, and he never got back up. The lady behind me (who was now in front of me) who was terrified as I told her to run, never got back up. I actually had to physically step over her body to run (something I am still struggling with, so please don’t attack me. I was absolutely in flight-or-fight mode). There was another person to my right who also wasn’t moving. We ran. […]

I thought to myself “we NEED to hide”, but as I looked quickly for somewhere to go, the gunfire once again got closer and closer. We couldn’t hide because they (and I do mean THEY) were chasing us. That exact moment is when I started to really panic. That is the exact moment in which I thought this was it, I was going to die, I was never going to see my family again. […] Bullets were coming from every direction. Behind us, in front of us, to the side of us. But I know, I just know, that there was someone chasing us. The entire time I felt this way. The farther we got from the venue, the closer the gunfire got. I kept looking back expecting to see the gunmen- and I say MEN because there was more than one person. There was more than one gun firing. 100% more than one. […]”

Dennis and Lorraine Carver

On October 16, husband and wife Dennis, 52, and Lorraine Carver, 53, who had survived the Las Vegas shooting two weeks ago, were killed when their Mercedes smashed into a metal gate and brick pillars less than a mile from their home in Riverside, California. California Highway Patrol said their car was engulfed by fire and it took firefighters nearly an hour to contain the blaze. (Las Vegas Review-Journal)

Danny Contreras

On the morning of October 23, 2017, Las Vegas police found Danny Contreras, 35, fatally shot in a vacant home. Police said Contreras had been shot several times in the upper torso, and that the killing was likely related to narcotics. (Las Vegas Review Journal)

According to Zero Hedge, Contreras was a survivor of the Las Vegas shooting and that, like Kymberley Suchomel, he had also publicly claimed there were multiple gunmen the night of the attack.

In a tweet on October 5, four days after the mass shooting, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange implied that the shooting had been staged by the FBI and gave a link to a Business Insider article claiming that “The FBI is ‘manufacturing terrorism cases’ on a greater scale than ever before.”
