Webb’s Braverman videos

Webb’s Braverman videos

There is a growing awareness in the world about the video series that has been put together by one fellow named George Webb.

As was said at Occurrences  previously,

Essential viewing: this and/or any segment in an ongoing series of analyses by George Webb in which he identifies the formulaic connections between Syria, Haiti, the Clinton Foundation, Petraeus, oil deals, pipelines, rat lines, weapons sales, regime toppling, and human trafficking.

Or you can read about it in The Captain’s Journal.

I have caught a few of the most recent ones and watched enough to know that there is something here to which Americans must pay attention, particularly those still concerned about liberty, the Republic, governmental transparency, the free press, and the Bill of Rights. 

The work stands on its own merits simply in terms of depth, perserverance, etc.,, but also in the fact that he has created and placed on line a complete set of slides that he uses in the tapes, as well as more information on his sources (slide #73, expanded below for readability).

George Webb posted 3 weeks ago

I am going to throw some dead man switch info out there just in case. I’m George Webb Sweigert from Portland, Oregon. If the videos stop, check the news and carry on the torch.

Here is George’s full YouTube channel.

I have not yet watched all of these; I’ve been busy compiling, for my own benefit and use by others, a complete list of available videos.  Some of them are longer than others; on some days, he makes as many as three to five videos. They are numbered for both day (the first number) and order (the second number). So, for example, the fifth video on day #12 wouild show up as [5/12].

It’s been said, perhaps erroneously, that some of the videos were disappearing, which is why I made this compilation. I do not know the date or the number of the very first video.  There is progression over time as more and more information came to light. The collection of information and its analysis continue.

The Kolkvovo Report, on the transfer of US military technology to the Russians by Hillary and friends…

Executive Summary

• A major technology transfer component of the Russian reset overseen by Hillary Clinton substantially enhanced the Russian military’s technological capabilities, according to both the FBI and the U.S. Army.

• Russian government officials and American corporations participated in the technology transfer project overseen by Hillary Clinton’s State Department that funnelled tens of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation.

• A Putin-­‐‑connected Russian government fund transferred $35 million to a small company with Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta on its executive board, which included senior Russian officials.

• John Podesta failed to reveal, as required by law on his federal financial disclosures, his membership on the board of this offshore company.

• Podesta also headed up a think tank which wrote favorably about the Russian reset while apparently receiving millions from Kremlin-­‐‑linked Russian oligarchs via an offshore LLC.

$13 Billion Aircraft Carrier Struggles with Air Operations, Can’t Defend Itself, Systems ‘Likely Require Redesigning’

July 21st, 2016 by Kevin

Well, the good news is that $13 billion looks like pocket lint compared to the cost of the F-35 catastrophe.

Have a nice day.

Via: Bloomberg:

The U.S. Navy’s newest aircraft carrier isn’t ready for warfare.

The $12.9 billion USS Gerald R. Ford — the most expensive warship ever built — may struggle to launch and recover aircraft, mount a defense and move munitions, according to the Pentagon’s top weapons tester. On-board systems for those tasks have poor or unknown reliability issues, according to a June 28 memo obtained by Bloomberg News.

“These four systems affect major areas of flight operations,” Michael Gilmore, the Defense Department’s director of operational test and evaluation, wrote Pentagon and Navy weapons buyers Frank Kendall and Sean Stackley. “Unless these issues are resolved, which would likely require redesigning” of the aircraft launch and recovery systems “they will significantly limit the CVN-78’s ability to conduct combat operations,” Gilmore wrote, using a technical name for the carrier.

The reliability woes mean that delivery of the Ford — the first of three carriers ordered up in a $42 billion program — will probably slip further behind schedule. The Navy announced last week that the ship, originally due by September 2014, wouldn’t be delivered before November this year because of continuing unspecified testing issues.

WASHINGTON — A wearable device designed to better stimulate brain function during athletic and, perhaps, military training could soon be adopted by American special operations troops, Defense Secretary Ash Carter said Tuesday.

The Pentagon’s start-up Defense Innovation Unit Experimental, or DIUx, recently entered into its first official partnership with a commercial technology firm to develop or adapt projects to help American troops on future battlefields, Carter announced in Boston, where he formally opened the Silicon Valley-based DIUx’s East Coast office. The agreement with that firm, Halo Neuroscience, will allow the military to explore uses for the company’s headphone-like brain stimulator designed for elite level professional athletes.

DIUx has created teams to scout and directly engage with commercial technology organizations to identify technologies that the Pentagon might be able to adopt or co-develop with the firms to increase servicemembers’ warfighting capabilities, Carter said. It is also using new authorities granted by Congress last year that drastically reduce the amount of time needed for the Defense Department to partner with a tech firm.

Using those authorities, DIUx entered into the partnership with San Francisco-based Halo in only about 30 days. Such an agreement could have taken months, if not years, in the past.

“This new approach is already generating lots of enthusiasm,” Carter said. “Our military services, combatant commands, and defense agencies like the speed and agility it affords.”

The partnership with Halo is among 15 initial commercially developed projects DIUx aims to adapt to military use in the coming months. Other programs include developing a tiny drone with the ability to perceive its environment to map out tightly confined spaces such as caves, tunnels or ships, and an artificial intelligence machine that can automatically sift through millions of Internet posts to identify extremist material.

Halo Neuroscience was founded in 2013 by a team of doctors, neuroscientists and engineers to develop technology to improve brain function. Its first commercially available product, Halo Sport, uses energy pulses that the company claims speed up the brain’s ability to develop new neural pathways, better connecting brain function to the body. The company calls the process “neuropriming,” and claims research shows athletes who have used it develop “more precise, coordinated, and … explosive movement.”

The device has been championed by several athletes training for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil and is in use by athletes in professional baseball, football and basketball, according to a Halo statement.

“These headsets will be used by teams from our special operations forces, who will work with Halo to gauge how effective their device might be at improving marksmanship, close-quarters-combat skills, and overall strength training,” Carter said.

[See prior riffs on the Bourne Legacy.]

 

During his stop in Boston, Carter also announced he increased the size of the Defense Innovation Board to include 15 high-level advisers from leading private and public innovation and technology organizations.

The board, led by Alphabet Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt will also include Jeff Bezos, the president, chairman and CEO, Amazon Inc. and the owner of the Washington Post; Marne Levine, the chief operating officer of Instagram, and Neil deGrasse Tyson, the renowned astrophysicist and author. Carter had previously announced it would include Schmidt, retired Navy Adm. William McRaven, who is a former Special Operations Command chief, and biographer and Aspen Institute CEO Walter Isaacson.

The board is expected to make its first round of recommendations concerning the Pentagon’s innovation tactics by the fall, Carter said.

“I’ve given them the very specific task of identifying innovative private sector best practices that could be of use to [the Defense Department] — not unlike our recent Hack the Pentagon pilot program, which invited hackers to help find vulnerabilities in our networks,” Carter said. “It’s a perfect example of the kind of thing I’m looking for the Innovation Board to recommend.”

Neil deGrasse Tyson, Jeff Bezos, Cass Sunstein Join Pentagon’s ‘Defense Innovation Board’

July 26th, 2016 by Kevin

See: Cass “Cognitive Infiltration” Sunstein

Also, this sounds like the group described in Ernest Cline’s Armada, which I would only recommend to absolute diehard sci-fi and gaming nerds who are between the ages of about 40 and 50 years old.

My guess, however, is that Cline got the idea for the group in his book from the Jasons.

Via: DefenseNews:

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, Amazon head Jeff Bezos and former Obama administration official Cass Sunstein are among the newest names to join Defense Secretary Ash Carter’s new Defense Innovation Advisory Board.

Carter announced those names as part of a list of ten new members for the board, which he created in March to advise the Pentagon on technology innovation issues. The board is headed by Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Alphabet, the Google parent company.

A US-developed weapon system that strikes the atmosphere with a focussed electromagnetic beam may cause global warming, the government today said and acknowledged that climate change is likely to reduce the yield of major crops like wheat and maize in India.

“The US has developed a type of weapon called High Frequency Active Auroral Research Programme. HAARP strikes the upper atmosphere with a focussed and steerable electromagnetic beam,” Environment Minister Anil Madhav Dave told the Rajya Sabha in a written reply.

In the video above, Dane Wigington delivers a presentation on geoengineering which took place last September in Redding, California. Wigington maintains the GeoengineeringWatch.org website, and he has gotten together with a team of lawyers to form the Legal Alliance to Stop Geoengineering, or LASG.

On Monday of this week, the LASG filed a “US 60-Day Notice of Legal Action”–basically giving notice to a number of named individuals that they are about to become defendants in a lawsuit aimed at stopping the illegal spraying taking place in our skies.

The suit is expected to be filed in federal court in California within the next 60 days.

A PDF file of the “Notice of Intent to File Citizens’ Suits” can be found here. The individuals named as “violators” in the document include Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter; Gen. Mark A. Welsh III, chief of staff of the US Air Force; Michael Huerta, administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration; Maj. Gen. Charles Frank Bolden, Jr., administrator of NASA; Louis W. Uccellini, director of the National Weather Service; and Dr. Kathryn Sullivan, administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

DARPA SPENT $62 MILLION CREATING MICROCHIPS FOR HUMANS

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is in the process of making a neural-coding device capable of controlling artificial limbs when seeded in the brain. The device has had success in animal studies and the first human trials are set for 2017. The Pentagon has subsidized the institution $62 million to help foster this mind-control technology. Meanwhile, the mainstream media is pushing for the micochipping of children sooner rather than later. During a recent televised report by NBC News, the news station purported the micro-chipping of children by the state was as normal as bar codes for consumers: “When barcodes first came out in the late 1960s, people were appalled. They were wary of them and did not understand the concept. Today, it is so commonplace, we don’t even notice it. A microchip would work much in the same way.”

‘US deliberately destroyed CIA black site used for torture’ –Defense teams: Black site they believed was under protective order as a crime scene has been destroyed without their knowledge. | 28 July 2016 | Ammar al Baluchi was brutally tortured in CIA custody, along with other detainees, but now it is reported that the black site where Baluchi was held has been destroyed, Alka Pradhan, defense attorney for Gitmo detainee Ammar al Baluchi, told RT. The September 11 mass murder trial has yet to begin at Guantanamo Bay detention facility for several detainees prisoners who, in the government’s opinion, are guilty enough to be charged. However, the legal proceedings are being held up by the prosecution’s evidence…And then there’s the question of one specific piece of evidence not sent back that pertains to a secret CIA black site where most of the defendants were reportedly tortured.

1,000s Turkish forces surround NATO’s Incirlik air base for ‘inspection’ amid rumors of coup attempt | 31 July 2016 | Some 7,000 armed police with heavy vehicles have surrounded and blocked the Incirlik air base in Adana used by NATO forces, already restricted in the aftermath of a failed coup. Unconfirmed reports say troops were sent to deal with a new coup attempt. Hurriyet reported earlier that Adana police had been tipped off about a new coup attempt, and forces were immediately alerted. The entrance to the base was closed off.

The Obama Administration Has Brokered More Weapons Sales Than Any Other Administration Since World War II

July 31st, 2016 by Kevin

Via: The Nation:

The numbers should stagger anyone. According to the latest figures available from the Congressional Research Service, the United States was credited with more than half the value of all global arms transfer agreements in 2014, the most recent year for which full statistics are available. At 14 percent, the world’s second largest supplier, Russia, lagged far behind. Washington’s “leadership” in this field has never truly been challenged. The US share has fluctuated between one-third and one-half of the global market for the past two decades, peaking at an almost monopolistic 70 percent of all weapons sold in 2011. And the gold rush continues. Vice Admiral Joe Rixey, who heads the Pentagon’s arms sales agency, euphemistically known as the Defense Security Cooperation Agency, estimates that arms deals facilitated by the Pentagon topped $46 billion in 2015, and are on track to hit $40 billion in 2016.

Electronic Voting Systems and Security

July 30th, 2016 by Kevin

Of course, it’s worse than Bruce admits: Clinton Foundation and Electronic Voting Machines

Via: Bruce Schneier:

Over the years, more and more states have moved to electronic voting machines and have flirted with Internet voting. These systems are insecure and vulnerable to attack.

But while computer security experts like me have sounded the alarm for many years, states have largely ignored the threat, and the machine manufacturers have thrown up enough obfuscating babble that election officials are largely mollified.

We no longer have time for that. We must ignore the machine manufacturers’ spurious claims of security, create tiger teams to test the machines’ and systems’ resistance to attack, drastically increase their cyber-defenses and take them offline if we can’t guarantee their security online.

Longer term, we need to return to election systems that are secure from manipulation. This means voting machines with voter-verified paper audit trails, and no Internet voting. I know it’s slower and less convenient to stick to the old-fashioned way, but the security risks are simply too great.

Jade Helm a Mock Invasion of Iran?

The upcoming Jade Helm exercise, conducted by the US military across seven states has been attacked as a preparation for martial law, but could in fact be part of a much more sinister project.

US Special Forces to Swarm Southwest for Massive Military Drills

In the past several days, leaked plans for seven-state a US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) exercise in which states role-play as countries have made rounds across both news sites and conspiracy theorist circuits, with the latter ringing alarm, calling the drills a preparation for martial law. However, considering layout of the states used in the exercise, as well as their climate and terrain, the intent could be a preparation for an invasion of Iran and a Middle East-wide war.

According to the leaked proposal for the operation, service members will practice:

– Operating outside the normal support mechanisms

– Adapting to unfamiliar terrain, social and economic conditions

– Operating in and around communities where anything out the ordinary will be spotted and reported (Locals are the first to notice something out of place)

– The opportunity to work with civilians to gain their trust and an understanding of the issues

The main focus of the exercise appears to be Texas, including inhabited areas of Texas. The operation will include Army Special Forces (Green Berets), Navy SEALS, US Marine Corps Expeditionary Unites, US Army 82nd Airborne Division, as well as USAF and USMC SOCOM and “Interagency partners,” which together sounds more like a team that would invade a country, rather than a hostage-rescue operation or a plan to build homes for hurricane-devastated children.

A possible layout of the countries that US states that are part of Jade Helm exercises are role-playing as.

Texas — Islamic Republic of Iran

Texas, colored red for “hostile,” is likely a simulation of an invasion of Iran. Although it does not have the optimal terrain to simulate Iran, the proposal for the exercise appears to have chosen Texas for its Realistic Military Training because local authorities and the population are most receptive

The simulated invasion appears to be planned with a Central Joint Special Operations Task Force (CJSOTF), the headquarters,  as well as the Home Station, where the service members involved in the exercise would likely begin, at the Elgin Air Force Base, across the Gulf of Mexico, in Florida. This could mean that the simulated invasion of Iran is executed from a very remote place, such as in the simulated United States, or across the Persian Gulf.

Meanwhile, the local Special Operations Task Force (SOTF) would be based at the nearer Camp Shelby, in Missisippi, possibly a simulated Saudi Arabia, and the island (flight deck) of the USS John C. Stennis, a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier, likely stationed near the coast of the simulated Iran.

Within the simulated Iran, there would be a Joint Operations Access Exercise (JOAX), a US Army Airborne landing, conducted together with other units, deployed inland, likely to plant a force behind enemy lines. In addition, a Contingency Response Force (CRF) would land on the coast and practice the ground invasion.

The operations in Texas will involve eight Operational Detachment Alpha (ODA) US Army Special Forces groups, four unidentified Operational Detachment Groups (ODG), a US Marines Special Operations Team (MSOT) and the Naval Special Warfare Training Unit (NSWUT), among others.

New Mexico — Iraq

New Mexico is a state that has vast swathes of desert, like Iraq. Iraq has close ties with Iran, which could be a reason for why it is colored brown for “uncertain, leaning hostile,” which Iraq would likely be if Iran was to be invaded.

However, Iraq does have some US military installations, which could be simulated with the northern and southern Advanced Operational Bases (AOB).

Utah — Syria

Bonneville Salt Flats 361

Like Syria, which would be considered hostile in case of an Iran invasion, Utah is colored red. In addition, like parts of Syria, Utah has both mountains and flatlands.

Utah will be home to a Large Scale Exercise (LSE), in USMC terms means fighting the army of a simulated country. The exercise is set in an uninhabited area, suggesting an actual simulated battle against a Syrian Army opposing force. In addition, two unidentified Operational Detachment Groups (ODG) would be dispatched to the capital, which could mean a simulated covert operation in Damascus.

Colorado — Turkey

Colorado is a largely mountainous state, like Turkey, and it is colored blue for “permissive,” which means that aircraft and troops would be able to move through the state. Turkey as a NATO member would similarly be expected to fulfill such obligations.

Nevada and Arizona — Lebanon and Jordan

Phoenix, Arizona will be the site of the Special Forces’ Operational Detachment Headquarters (ODH) and a Marine Corps (MC) site, likely simulating Jordan’s capital Amman, which has been the site of Marine Corps deployments in recent years. However, although Phoenix is in a largely desert environment, it is also next to a mountain range, unlike Amman.

In addition, Arizona is colored light blue, making it neutral but leaning friendly, which could be the status of Lebanon when it comes to an operation against Syria, while Nevada is blue, permissive, which could be the status of Jordan. Such an arrangement suggest that the geographic and diplomatic statuses could have been switched to preserve political realism in the situation.

California — Israel and Palestine

California generally has a soft Mediterranean climate, like Israel, and would be permissive to US military movements, as Israel would be. There are no deployments planned to California, as the simulated invasion of Iran would likely not have much of an impact on the situation there. The “insurgent pocket” likely represents both the inland West Bank and the coastal Gaza Strip, which would be hostile to the operation and would not allow the US military to operate in the area. However, it is also possible that California is a simulation of Lebanon, and the “insurgent pocket” is a Hezbollah-controlled area that would be opposed to a US invasion of Iran.
