Putin appoints bioweapons, chemical and nuclear expert as new US ambassador. Will ambitious FBI and Pentagon careerists finally put country first or will they keep trying to hide their failures? Will Senate and Congress hold FBI accountable for all their lapses? Years of staggering lapses have sunk reputation of USA intelligence community and endangered America

August 21, 2017

Judging from my conversation with a Russian journalist from state run TV in Larisa last summer, Russian intelligence has very little respect for the FBI and its ability to identify and deal with real world biological warfare threats, as opposed to text book, politically correct, opportunistic career advancing moves or media hyped threats.

The reason why is plain.

At any rate, it does not seem a coincidence that Vladimir Putin today appointed a n expert in biological, chemical and nuclear warfare as his new ambassador to Washington.  Exploiting the many holes in US intelligence and biodefenses must seem child’s play to many a foreign country in the meantime.

Anatoly Antonov, currently Russia’s deputy foreign minister, is set to become his country’s ambassador to the United States on September 1.


Let’s hope the FBI finally gets its act together after advertising to the entire world since the swine flu false flag in 2009 that it is indeed the agency of failure, of a failure to investigate, failure to prosecute, failure to set up deterrents, and also a failure to protect me, a vital source of information on the biological warfare threat also in 2014 in relation to Ebola, from constant murder attempts, documented year in, year out.

If it turns out the FBI agents knew about all the threats to my life (almost certainly they did) and did nothing to protect a witness to save their careers, there should be an investigation. Ambitious careerists trying to hide all their failures are posing a bigger risk to US security even than the Russians even.

The FBI and Pentagon’s passivity, bungling and general incompetence on the entire world stage could prove the undoing of the USA if the intelligence community does not get up to speed soon with the new era of asymmetric, novel threats from a whole range of countries.

FBI directors might have to stop thinking about their big salaries, smooth career progression (much helped by hiding from the Senate, Congress and the public all their failures) and book deals, and start thinking about how to tackle  complex, real world problems in a professional, transparent, systematic way. to regain some respect as a force capable of protecting the USA.

And the Senate and Congress should start holding the FBI to account for its staggering failures over the past ten years which has led to a new triangle of a Trump, Putin, Kushner threat on their very doorstep. Brushing problems under the carpet to look good in public is no longer an option.

Anatoly Antonov, currently Russia’s deputy foreign minister, is set to become his country’s ambassador to the United States on September 1.


Antonov led the ministry’s Department of Security and Disarmament for seven years (2004-2011) and headed Russian delegations to numerous security conferences, including ones on nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. He also led negotiations with the United States on missile defense, strategic arms and export control.


Antonov, who headed a number of Russian governmental delegations abroad, has considerable negotiating experience. The official has taken part in talks with G8 states, as well as negotiations over the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, and chemical and biological weapons ban treaties. Antonov also headed the Russian delegation at the talks with the United States on the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty.

Jared Kushner’s company in Maryland has had tenants arrested for unpaid debts, and using the very same trick that nearly saw me arrested here in Larisa in May for a blog post naming Kushner, Reince Priebus and Mike Pence as Russian contacts.

“People are being arrested for a debt that they may not even be aware of, or for a court date they may not have been aware of,” said state Senator William C. Smith, a Montgomery County Democrat in relation to Kushner’s practise.

“Landlords say tenants are not arrested for owing money, but for missing at least two court hearings about the alleged arrears.”


I was kept deliberately in the dark by Larisa court of the summons to answer criminal charges about the February 15th blog post, shortly after which FBI investigator Andrew McCabe visited the White House and questioned Reince Priebus. As happens routinely to the Kushner tenants, the notice was not properly served to me. Unlike many Kushner tenants, I can prove that Larisa court had all the information about my new address when they sent the summons to my old address. The court even tried to change it back.

If I had missed two court summons, I could have been arrested in Larisa. Since the underlying charge is a fabricated criminal offence, I could have been put in prison with my murder reframed as suicide.

Kushner has a motive and also the means in the form of a network in Greece including George Soros, Alexis Tsipras and various corrupt Greek police and prosecutors. At the time, Greek American Reince Priebus was also the White House Chief of Staff.

Over the weekend of May 6th and 7th when I began to post about this scandal, Jared Kushner allegedly pushed Donald Trump to fire James Comey, according to media.

“Recently, according to several sources, Bannon has told friends he wants Priebus to give his account of the James Comey firing to special prosecutor Robert Mueller. According to a source close to Priebus, the former chief of staff believes that the decision was made during an early May weekend in Bedminster, where Kushner, Ivanka Trump, and Stephen Miller were with the president. Trump returned to the Oval Office on Monday, May 8 and told other aides he intended to fire Comey,” reports Vanity Fair.


Trump fired Comey on May 9th after I raised the issue of whether people with back knowledge of Russian contacts were being silenced.

“The real estate company owned by Jared Kushner, son-in-law and top adviser to President Donald Trump, has been the most aggressive in Maryland in using a controversial debt-collection tactic: getting judges to order the arrest of people who owe his company money.

Since 2013, the first full year in which the Kushner Cos. operated in Maryland, corporate entities affiliated with the firm’s 17 apartment complexes in the state have sought the civil arrest of 105 former tenants for failing to appear in court to face allegations of unpaid debt, The Baltimore Sun has found.

That’s more than any other landlord in the state over that time, an analysis of Maryland District Court data shows. Court records show that 20 former Kushner tenants have been detained.

But critics say it amounts to jailing people for being poor — and can interfere with their livelihoods, making it more difficult to pay the money they allegedly owe. Moreover, at least some tenants who have been targeted say they did not receive proper notice of the court appearances they were accused of missing.


“People are being arrested for a debt that they may not even be aware of, or for a court date they may not have been aware of,” said state Sen. William C. Smith, a Montgomery County Democrat. Being arrested, he said, has a “devastating effect.”

Judges approve body attachments to compel tenants to show up at civil proceedings. Landlords say tenants are not arrested for owing money, but for missing at least two court hearings about the alleged arrears.


Since 2013, when the Kushner Cos. began their first full year of operations in Maryland, affiliates of the firm have sought the arrest of 105 former tenants — more than any other firm in the state — for allegedly failing to appear in court to face allegations of unpaid debt.

Judges have awarded the firm a total of $5.4 million in judgments against tenants, who owed an average debt of nearly $4,400, the analysis shows. Their original average debts were $2,950, but lawyers fees, court costs and interest charges inflated the final judgments.

Judges have approved the garnishment of tenants’ wages in nearly all those cases.


John Kelly hangs his head during Trump’s off the cuff press conference…

August 17, 2017

Spare a thought for General John Kelly facing his toughest ever assignment after 40 years in the Marines now as Donald Trump’s White House Chief of Staff.

After his outburst in New York, Trump returned to his golf vacation. He should make it permanent. Resign, Donald!


From The Independent

As the new White House Chief of Staff, John Kelly routes all calls to and from President Donald Trump through the White House switchboard, where he can sign off on them. He stanches the flow of information reaching the President’s desk. And he requires that all staff members – including Trump’s relatives – go through him to reach the president.

But none of those attempts at discipline mattered this week. Instead, Kelly stood to the side as Trump upended his new Chief of Staff’s carefully scripted plans – pinballing through an impromptu and combative news conference in New York in which he inflamed another self-inflicted controversy by comparing the actions of white supremacist groups at a deadly rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend with the counter-protesters who came to oppose them.

The uproar – which has consumed not only the White House but the Republican Party – left Kelly deeply frustrated and dismayed just over two weeks into his job, said people familiar with his thinking. The episode also underscored the difficult challenges that even a four-star general faces in instilling a sense of order around Trump, whose first instinct when cornered is to lash out, even self-destructively.

By Wednesday, Trump, back at his New Jersey golf club, was further isolated and the White House was again under attack. Some aides and confidants privately described themselves as sickened and appalled, if not entirely surprised, by Trump’s off-the-cuff comments. And the president watched, furious, as a cascade of chief executives distanced themselves from him, prompting the dissolution of his major business advisory councils.

Kerin Hope in Athens writes for The Financial Times “Fears for the independence of the Greek judicial system are mounting after the foreign minister won a court order freezing the bank accounts of a leading magazine over a reader’s letter describing him as a former “fanatical” Stalinist.” Only to be promptly attacked herself by Greece’s Foreign Minister Nikos Kozias, who tutored Alexis Tsipras when he was a Young Communist Leader, and who co wrote a propaganda book with an East German Stasi agent.





From the Greek Reporter

The ruling was sharply criticized by academics and public figures, who say it violates European Union law on freedom of expression, the paper said, amid growing attacks by Kotzias’ party, heavily Communist-ridden Radical Left SYRIZA of Premier Alexis Tsipras, a former Communist youth leader.

Mr Kotzias, 66, is a divisive figure in Greece. The Germany-educated intellectual once co-authored a propaganda book with a top agent of the Stasi, the intelligence agency in East Germany. In Athens Mr Kotzias tutored members of the communist youth movement, among them Alexis Tsipras, now the prime minister.

After Syriza came to power in 2015 he become the party’s intellectual mentor. He has denied accusations that he worked as a Stasi agent in Greece, arguing in a 2015 media interview that he was ordered by Greek and East German Communist party officials to “write things that were nonsense”.

Kotzias’ ‘Fanatical’ Stalinist Verdict Could Close Greek Magazine

ATHENS – A court ruling freezing the bank accounts of a leading Greek magazine over a reader’s letter describing Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias as a “fanatical” Stalinist – which can’t be appealed – is aimed at shutting it down and stifling free speech, the owners said.

The case developed from the letter in the the Athens Review of Books in 2010 that described the minister as having once been “the most extreme, fanatical, cruel and relentless communist of our generation, a true gauleiter [petty official] of Stalinism”.

The Supreme Court convicted Manolis and Maria Vasilakis, the magazine’s owners, on defamation charges and awarded Kotzias €22,000 ($25,804) in damages and ordered its bank account seized on his Kotzias’ demand. They said he wanted their business shuttered, The Financial Times reported in an account of the case.

The ruling was sharply criticized by academics and public figures, who say it violates European Union law on freedom of expression, the paper said, amid growing attacks by Kotzias’ party, heavily Communist-ridden Radical Left SYRIZA of Premier Alexis Tsipras, a former Communist youth leader.

Unable to appeal in Greek courts, where prosecutors can otherwise seek out judges to pursue cases, as in the recent conviction of twice-cleared former national statistics ELSTAT chief Andreas Georgiou, Vasilakis said he would appeal to the European Court of Human Rights.

Kotzias is a former senior member of the Greek Communist party, which retains its Stalinist ideology, wouldn’t speak to the paper.

The court issued a unanimous 5-0 verdict against the magazine after Penelope Zontanou, the Supreme Court rapporteur, who originally called for the case to be dismissed in 2016 after arguing Kotzias’s claim violated European human rights law and the Greek constitution, reversed her position without explanation.

“It’s unprecedented for a member of the Supreme Court to reverse themselves like this without a strong legal argument,” a top Greek judge said who was not named told FT after the decision was released..

Vasilakis said his dispute with the foreign minister reflected the “problematic state” of Greece’s judicial system. “This case goes beyond a personal dispute. The real enemy is the current government, which doesn’t believe in a democratic system of checks and balances,” he said.

The Greek Union of Judges and Prosecutors demanded that SYRIZA ministers – backed by Tsipras, who tried to set a limit on private TV stations – stop attacking the judiciary and questioning rulings unfavorable to the government.

Deputy Justice Minister Dimitris Papangelopoulos, disregarding separation of the judiciary and executive, said the union’s members “has recently demonstrated an attitude that is strongly anti-government and also inward-looking . . . Does it not realize that the public’s trust in justice has declined sharply in recent years?” without citing a single example.

Kotzias, 66, is a German-educated intellectual who co-authored a propaganda book with a top agent of the Stasi, the intelligence agency in East Germany behind brutal repression under the Soviet regime.

He once tutored Tsipras and other members of the Communist youth movement in Greece although neither belong to the KKE Communist party which is largely irrelevant. Kotzias denied that he was a Stasi agent in Greece arguing in a 2015 media interview that he was ordered by Greek and East German Communist party officials to “write things that were nonsense” without explaining why he did.

From the NY Daily News

The federal investigation into Russia’s interference in the presidential election is focusing on current and former White House officials — starting with recently resigned Reince Priebus, according to a report on Saturday.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has asked the Trump administration about information regarding specific meetings, who attended them and whether there are any notes or transcripts of certain sit-downs, the New York Times reported.

Priebus, who stepped down as President Trump’s chief of staff last month, would have an extensive knowledge of meetings and related documents.

The Times reports that Mueller is specifically interested in Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey. Comey was canned in May after Trump urged him to “let go” of the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn in relation to the probe.


Greek American urged Trump campaign to meet with Putin in March 2016

August 16, 2017

The Greek American mafia are emerging as key partners and conduits for Donald Trump’s team, Putin and kleptocratic Russian oligarchs.

George Papadopoulos, Trump’s foreign policy advisor, tried to set up meeting with members of the Trump team with Russia by email during the campaign.

His attempt was rebuffed by Paul Manafort and others, likely over fears that it would draw too much attention to Trump’s source of funding.

Vanity Fair

In March 2016, George Papadopoulos, the youngest member of the campaign’s foreign policy team, sent an e-mail to seven Trump officials with the subject line “Meeting With Russian Leadership—Including Putin” wherein he offered to arrange “a meeting between us and the Russian leadership to discuss U.S.-Russia ties under President Trump,” according to The Washington Post, which was read internal Trump campaign communications.

Papadopoulos’s initial offer to act as an intermediary was rebuffed, according to the Post. “We thought we probably should not go forward with any meeting with the Russians until we have had occasion to sit with our NATO allies,” Clovis, Trump’s campaign co-chairman, wrote in response. Charles Kubic, a retired Navy Rear Admiral and adviser, raised legal concerns, too. “Just want to make sure that no one on the team outruns their headlights and embarrasses the campaign,” Kubic wrote.

Papadopoulos was not deterred, however. Over the course of the next six months, he reportedly sent more than a half-dozen similar proposals to senior members of the Trump campaign. The Trump staffer’s effort included forwarding an invitation from Ivan Timofeev, a senior official at the government-funded Russian International Affairs Council, for Trump to visit Moscow. To which Clovis responded, “There are legal issues we need to mitigate, meeting with foreign officials as a private citizen.” Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s campaign manager at the time was copied on the e-mail, but the exchange referenced by the Post did not include a response from him to Papadopoulos. After the offer to Lewandowski, Papadopoulos shared the invitation with Manafort, then Trump’s new campaign chairman, who also dismissed the request. “We need someone to communicate that DT is not doing these trips,” he wrote to Rick Gates, another Trump adviser.
