MEN (AND EVEN WOMEN ) IN BLACK – and in flak jackets at a bloody scene that was not anticipated? And you tell me this was a terrorist act? Unless, of course, if for “terrorists” you enjoin that I read “Illuminati mercenaries”.
Patsies, dupes and useful idiots; professional executioners; privatised command structure; and controlled corporate media – the Paris mayhem had all the key aspects of the successful execution of a false flag terror operation
The Charlie Hebdo siege was not a prolonged, grandstanding affair. It lasted less than a minute, 40 seconds to be precise. This included the “street side” horror – the make-believe killing of the “Muslim” policeman. The whole incident took place practically in a flash. Yet in that twinkling of an eye, we had a man who was lounging in the comfort of his apartment couch record on video a “graphic” portion of the whole grisly affair. And not only that: there was another party, as yet unnamed, who filmed related developments on the street (see accompanying pictures) from some rooftop perch.
The party that was filming from the rooftops not only trained their cameras, or mobile phones so went the spin, on the street below but on the concrete rooftop itself as well. What did we see? We saw a frenzy of activity on the rooftop, of a cast of about 8 to 10, similarly-clad people who were moving helter-skelter in an apparently choreographed manner that suggested advance drilling. Even more curious, at least two of these people were spotting body armour – bullet-proof vests. The video even shows one such man ducking and diving for feigned cover.
Meanwhile, amid all this agitated activity, one guy is busy texting on his mobile phone in a cool, calm, and collected manner to report to the command structure – the shadowy elements of the whole scheme who were the instigator and bankroller.
There were yet more bizarre happenings. Down on the street, three policemen heave in sight. None of them engages the two gunmen in a fire fight but all move right in their direction as if to somewhat reinforce them. The two gunmen do not fire at the police either but are busy chanting “Alahu Akbar!”, “Alahu Akbar”, in a outlandishly overdone, obviously impressionistic manner. Moments later, the gun men encounter a police car as they round a bend.
They are seen to be unleashing volleys of lead at the car, which frantically reverses in retreat and speeds away. What is stranger than fiction is that the windscreen shows no cracks from this barrage of AK 47 fire and none of the policemen in the car sustains injuries.
Yet the shooters are expert marksmen who so efficiently dispatched 12 people only a while ago! Firing at such close quarters, they inflict not a single casualty nor occasion the slightest dent to the car. This is a classic Hollywood set superimposed on a real life precincts.
But there is more. The video was not shot in a rash, amateurish way and by terrified witnesses cowering on a roof above the scene: it had been skillfully touched up, with intermittent splicing in of scenes which are unrelated and are not sequential. At one stage, two totally different scenes, the rooftop scenario and the street take, appear in the same frame! Even a wholly visually impaired Stevie Wonder would tell without strain that what we saw on the videos were not live events but movie-style drills recorded in advance.
There is simply no way the videos would have been shot from several vantage points, from perfect angles, and with the acoustics of the shootings so loud one gets the impression the people who were filming stood right beside the attackers to crisply catch the sound bites.
That the 15 seconds-long video itself was even shown to us (through France24 TV: you can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUuYSft1fOw) was simply in mockery of mankind – that we guys are so dumb we cannot even see a clear-cut situation of the Illuminati playing Hollywood on us! For as long as we remain in wilful Cimmerian darkness, the Reptilians will always have a field day on a planet we call our own.
FRENCH SECURITY SEEMINGLY INDIFERRENT There are still other anomalies about the Paris attacks that bolster the case of a false flag operation. The Charlie Hebdo shootings happened on Richard Lenoir Boulevard. This is not an obscure backstreet. It is a buzzing-busy street, with double lanes in either direction, with 5 to 6-floor buildings bearing down on it. It is therefore odd that on that January 7 morning, it was practically devoid of traffic, as though it had been tactfully cordoned off by accomplice police. The traffic seemed to have vanished into thin air on a street where cars move bumper to bumper virtually round the clock.
Typically, when a red-flag event like this occurs, maybe a dozen police vehicles will be scrambled, with high-pitched sirens wailing away non-stop. In the Charlie Hebdo incident, the first to be deployed were bicycle-mounted cops. When the SWAT vehicles at long last turned up, they were no more than two! It is also intriguing that all the men who responded spotted French Foreign Legion haircuts, which is far from a hallmark of ambulance drivers and emergency medical technicians.
There is also this other aspect the international media has almost totally neglected to highlight, or simply purposefully shielded – that the attacks did not exactly catch the French authorities off-guard. At about 11:00 a.m the previous day, the Algerian government had tipped them off on an imminent “major terrorist operation on French territory”.
That the Algerian government did have some smattering about the planned massacre need not raise eyebrows: the Kouachi brothers were French nationals of Algerian origins and the Buttes-Chaumont jihadist recruitment cell, to which the brothers belonged, in the main comprised of Franco-Algerians. Having been so timeously warned, why didn’t the French government issue a nationwide alert 24 hours before the Charlie Hebdo carnage took place?
WHY WAS SURVEILLANCE CALLED OFF? The Kouachi brothers were not come-from-nowhere mischief-makers. They were very well-known to the British, French, and US security services. In point of fact, they had been under surveillance for a very long time. They had been on a British watch list for the last four years with a view to prevent them from entering the UK or transiting through a UK airport.
In the US, they had been logged on a database of known or suspected international terrorists, called TIDE (Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment system), and also appeared on the famous No-Fly List. Cherif Kouachi for one was expressly forbidden from venturing outside France’s borders after it emerged that he had travelled to Yemen in 2011 reportedly to hone his skills in the handling of weapons.
For men with extensive links to jihadist groups as the Kouachi brothers were, the all-seeing eye of the law should have focused on them like a search light. Yet in December 2013, DGSI, the French equivalent of FBI, mysteriously suspended wiretaps and any other such surveillance of the two brothers. Reason? “Because there were other priorities”, said a government official. The double-speak in such a statement as far as I am concerned is that the brothers were left to their own devices so they could zero in on a new Illuminati-sanctioned priority – to wreak havoc at Charlie Hebdo, an event in which, it turns out, their only role was that of sacrificial lambs.
As for Amedy Coulibaly, the swashbuckling hostage-taker at a kosher grocery where four people perished at his hands (or rather at the hands of the police as some reports say), his case probably raises even more questions than that of the Kouachi brothers.
In July 2009, Coulibaly loomed large at a PR event that was hosted by the then President Nicholas Sarkozy. Coulibaly, a French of Senegalese descent, was one of 9 young French men who were being feted by the president for a most mundane reason of having been “signed up by a local factory”.
It is curious that at the time, Coulibaly was already an ex-jailbird. He had served time in a French prison – from 2005-2006 – where he had shared a cell with Cherif Kouachi. The event clearly was stage-managed to canonise him in a somewhat oblique fashion. It was part of constructing a cover for the sanguinary activities that were already in the works and which were a collaboration between the Illuminati and the jihadists.
The synchronised Charlie Hebdo and Kosher supermarket attacks were a culmination of it all. Both the Kouachi brothers and Coulibaly served the same Luciferian masters who unbeknownst to them regarded them as little more than pawns in the cosmic chess game.
Coulibaly’s kosher grocery siege was not haphazard: it was directed, to give the ostensible impression that in the greater scheme of things, it were the Jews who the “terrorists” had targeted. Very clever operators the Illuminati are.
THE LAUGHABLE ID FIND The French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve suggested that the Kouachi brothers would not have been so expeditiously nabbed had they not committed one fatal mistake. This was that one of the two, Said, forgot his identity card in their Citroen C-3 getaway car. The moment this came to light, I couldn’t help snicker in amusement. The Illuminati’s now we-don’t-care attitude is such that it matters little if their broad-daylight lie is not sophisticated enough. The blithering idiot that was Cazeneuve even had the audacity to call this “their only mistake”!
For starters, terrorists do not carry IDs that bear their real names. They always use assumed names using sophisticatedly forged IDs. Trust me, if, for instance, you hear that 911 “mastermind” Mohammad Atta’s ID was scavenged from the carbonated debris of the Twin Towers, whose steel core even had to turn from solid to liquid at that hyper-temperature of the cascading inferno – and was even found in pristine condition to boot, then that terrorist act was perpetrated not by Muhammad Atta but by the likes of the CIA and Mossad.
Moreover, the Kouachi brothers were not cut from the mould of suicide bombers. We know they were cowards, or at the very least cowardly. They were certainly people of low mental ability who had bungled previous terrorist activities leading to their arrest. They were not even religious fanatics: a bloke who knew them well said he didn’t see them at the mosque in two years.
The two Kalashinikova-wielding cold blooded killers did not set much store by baring their handsome or ugly faces. When they burst into the Charlie Hebdo offices, they were clad in masks. The guys who killed in those offices and who we saw strutting their stuff in the middle of the mysteriously deserted street did not want their identities known. So why leave your ID at the crime scene, and in so clumsy a fashion at that (as if your IQ is in single figures), when you wanted anonymity from the very outset?
To the discerning, a category to which I happily append my signature, that ID was not an identity card left by Said Kouachi: it was a planted identikit. The Kouachi brothers were framed. The Charlie Hebdo shooters were not remotely related to the Kouachi brothers: they were patsies or scapegoats – the Lee Harvey Oswalds and Muhammad Attas of the whole charade. This is so thunderingly obvious.
Western Police and Intelligence officers are past masters at planting such “ham sandwich” evidence as it is called to support false narratives and incriminate innocents. As someone so roundly put it, “What are the odds that skilled terrorists who have just carried out an ultra-professional special-forces style attack will accidentally leave their ID card in the abandoned getaway car? Answer: Effectively zero … The discovery of Kouachi’s ID does not implicate him; it exonerates him. It shows that he is an innocent patsy who is being framed by the real perpetrators of the attack.”
MURDER DRESSED AS SUICIDE On the evening following the day of the Charlie Hebdo massacre, a police commissioner going by the name Helric Fredou, who had been assigned charge of investigations into the attacks, reportedly committed suicide in the solitude of his office using a police revolver. He is said to have blown his brains to bits.
Although his office was part of an office block, no one heard his gun go off, a rather odd thing given that the gun was not fitted with a silencer. He was an experienced law enforcement agent, having been an anti-terrorist Special Branch officer since 2011 and deputy director of the regional police service since 2012.
Earlier in the day, Fredou had called one of his family members expressing concern at certain fishy developments in his investigations. Curiously, the Western media did not report his death despite the fact it had been announced on TV 3, the third biggest news network in France, till three days later.
Now, if you think Fredou did terminate his own life on account of a history of “depression” of some sort, a suggestion even his own doctor rubbished, then I’m afraid you don’t live on this planet but in fairy tale land in another realm of existence. Fredou’s mother has been denied access to his autopsy report when the law entitles her to it. She has been told in no uncertain terms that she will never ever set her eyes on the covertly classified report. She won’t because if she did, her suspicions would become fact – that her son was murdered in cold blood just like the Charlie Hebdo victims whose savage mortality he was investigating.
AND TO THINK YAYI BONI DID CRY? Sometime in December 2014, the French parliament overwhelmingly passed a motion urging government to recognise the existence of a Palestinian state. Palestine has been under occupation since 1967 and its government relegated to an “authority” as opposed to a sovereign state. On December 30 2014, France went ahead to vote for a UN Palestinian resolution calling for a “full IDF (Israel Defence Force) withdrawal to the pre-1967 lines by the end of 2017”.
The previous month, Israel Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu had warned that “Recognition of a Palestinian state by France would be a grave mistake”. The accent, apparently, was on the term “grave”. Was the Charlie Hebdo attack the immediate comeuppance of the French government’s positive stance towards the Palestinian bid for statehood? It could explain why French President Francois Hollande initially didn’t want Netanyahu to take part in the solidarity march of January 11 2015.
Talking of the solidarity picket march, it was graced by the “The Six”, an ominous Illuminati number. These were the leaders of African francophone countries of Mali, Niger, Togo, Benin, Gabon, and Senegal. Benin president Yayi Boni was even seen weeping copiously as he marched along with more than 40 other leaders when he never shed a single tear when only next door in Nigeria in the same month Boko Haram pulled off its deadliest single day of terrorism, with 2,000 people killed like flies. The Nigeria President himself, “Bad Luck” Jonathan, sent fawning condolences when hitherto he had not said a single word on the barbarities Abubakar Shekau and his band of genocidal thugs were wreaking on the country.
How did the attacks in France so thoroughly bury the atrocities in Nigeria? My mind boggles. Please help me out.
Here is how one Permanent Secretary encapsulates the clear tension between democracy and bureaucracy in Botswana: “President Mokgweetsi Masisi’s Government is behaving like a state surrounded with armed forces in order to capture it or force its surrender. The situation has turned so volatile, for tomorrow is not guaranteed for us top civil servants.
These are the painful results of a personalized civil service in our view as permanent secretaries”. Although his deduction of the situation may be summed as sour grapes because he is one of the ‘victims’ of the reshuffle, he is convinced this is a perfect description of the rationale behind frequent changes and transfers characterising the current civil service.
The result of it all, he said, is that “there is too much instability at managerial and strategic levels of the civil service leading to a noticeable directionless civil service.” He continued: “Changes and transfers are inevitable in the civil service, but to a permissible scale and frequency. Think of soccer team coach who changes and transfers his entire squad every month; you know the consequences?”
The Tsunami has hit hard at critical departments and Ministries leaving a strong wave of uncertainty, many demoralised and some jobless. In traditional approaches to public administration, democracy gives the goals; and bureaucracy delivers the technical efficiency required for implementation. But the recent moves in the civil service are indicative of conflicting imperatives – the notion of separation between politicians and administrators is becoming blurred by the day.
“Look at what happened to Prisons and BDF where second in command were overlooked for outsiders, and these are the people who had sacrificially served for donkey’s years hoping for a seat at the ladder’s end. The frequency of the changes, at times affecting the same Ministry or individual also demonstrates some level of ineptitude, clumsiness and lack of foresight from those in charge,” remarked the PS who added that their view is that the transfers are not related to anything but “settling scores, creating corruption opportunities and pushing out perceived dissident and former president, Ian Khama’s alleged loyalists and most of these transfers are said to be products of intelligence detection.”
Partly blaming Khama for the mess and his unwillingness to let go, the PS dismissed Masisi for falling to the trap and failing to outgrow the destructive tiff. “Khama is here to stay and the sooner Masisi comes to terms with the fact that he (Masisi) is the state President, the better. For a President to still be making these changes and transfers signals signs of a confused man who has not yet started rolling his roadmap, if at all it was ever there. I am saying this because any roadmap comes with key players and policies,” he concluded.
The Ministry of Health and Wellness seems to be the most hard-hit by the transfers, having experienced three Permanent Secretaries changes within a year and a half. Insiders say the changes have everything to do with the Ministry being the centre of COVID-19 tenders and economic opportunities. “The buck stops with the PS and no right-thinking PS can just allow glaring corruption under his watch as an accounting officer. Technocrats are generally law abiding, the pressure comes with politically appointed leaders racing against political terms to loot,” revealed a director in the Ministry preferring anonymity.
The latest transfer of Kabelo Ebineng she says was also motivated by his firm attitude against the President’s blue-eyed Task Team boys. “The Task Team wants to own the COVID-19 pandemic and government interventions and always cry foul when the Ministry reasserts itself as mandated by law,” said the director who added that Masisi who was always caught between the crossfire decided on sacrificing Ebineng to the joy of his team as they (Task Team) were in the habit of threatening to resign citing Ebineng as the problem.
Ebineng joins the Office of the President as a deputy Coordinator (government implementation and coordination office).The incoming PS is the soft-spoken Grace Muzila, known and described by her close associates as a conformist albeit knowledgeable.
One of the losers in the grand scheme is Thato Raphaka who many had seen as the next PSP because of his experience and calm demeanour following a declaration of interest in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Secretary post by the current PSP, Elias Magosi.
But hardly ten months into his post, Raphaka has been transferred out to the National Strategy Office in what many see as a demotion of some sort. Other notable changes coming into OP are Pearl Ramokoka formerly with the Employment, Labour and Productivity Ministry coming in as a Permanent Secretary and Kgomotso Abi as director of Public Service Reforms.
One of the ousted senior officers in the Office of the President warned that there are no signs that the changes and transfers will stop anytime soon: “If you are observant you would have long noticed that the changes don’t only affect senior officers but government decisions as well. A decision is made today and the government backtracks on it within a week. Not only that, the President says this today, and his deputy denies it the following day in Parliament,” he warned.
Some observers have blamed the turmoil in the civil service partly to lack of accountable presidential advisers or kitchen cabinet properly schooled on matters of statecraft. They point out that politicians or those peripheral to them should refrain from hampering the technical and organizational activities of public managers – or else the party (reshuffling) won’t stop.
In the view expressed by some Permanent Secretaries, Elias Magosi, has not really been himself since joining the civil service; and has cut a picture of indifference in most critical engagements; the most notable been a permanent secretaries platform which he chairs. As things stand there is need to reconcile the imperatives of democracy and democracy in Botswana. Peace will rein only when public value should stand astride the fault that runs between politicians and public managers.
Former Permanent Secretary to the President, Carter Morupisi, is fighting for survival in a matter in which the State has charged him and his wife, Pinnie Morupisi, with corruption and money laundering.
Morupisi has joined a list of prominent figures that served in the previous administration and who have been accused of corruption during their tenure in office. While others have been emerging victorious, Morupisi is yet to find that luck. The High Court recently dismissed his no case to answer application.
United States President, Joe Biden, is faced with a decision to make relating to the Covid-19 vaccine intellectual property after 175 former world leaders and Nobel laurates joined the campaign urging the US to take “urgent action” to suspend intellectual property rights for Covid-19 vaccines to help boost global inoculation rates.
According to the world leaders, doing so would allow developing countries to make their own copies of the vaccines that have been developed by pharmaceutical companies without fear of being sued for intellectual property infringements.
“A WTO waiver is a vital and necessary step to bringing an end to this pandemic. It must be combined with ensuring vaccine know-how and technology is shared openly,” the signatories, comprising more than 100 Nobel prize-winners and over 70 former world leaders, wrote in a letter to US President Joe Biden, according to Financial Times.
A measure to allow countries to temporarily override patent rights for Covid related medical products was proposed at the World Trade Organization by India and South Africa in October, and has since been backed by nearly 60 countries.
Former leaders who signed the letter included Gordon Brown, former UK Prime Minister; François Hollande, former French President; Mikhail Gorbachev, former President of the USSR; and Yves Leterme, former Belgian Prime Minister.
In their official communication, South Africa and India said: “As new diagnostics, therapeutics and vaccines for Covid-19 are developed, there are significant concerns [about] how these will be made available promptly, in sufficient quantities and at affordable prices to meet global demand.”
While developed countries have been able to secure enough vaccine to inoculate their citizens, developing countries such as Botswana are struggling to source enough to swiftly vaccine their citizens, something which world leaders believe it would work against global recovery therefore proving counter-productive.
Since the availability of vaccines, Botswana has been able to secure only 60 000 doses of vaccines, 30 000 as donation as from the Indian government, while the other 30 000 was sourced through COVAX facility. Canada, has pre-ordered vaccines in surplus and it will be able to vaccinate each of its citizens six times over. In the UK and US, it is four vaccines per person; and two each in the EU and Australia.
For vaccines produced in Europe, developing countries are forced to pay double what European countries are paying, making it more expensive for already financially struggling economies. European countries however justify the price of vaccines and that they deserve to buy them cheap since they contributed in their development.
It is evident that vaccines cannot be made available immediately to all countries worldwide with wealthy economies being the only success story in that regard, something that has been referred to as a “catastrophic moral failure”, head of the World Health Organisation (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
The challenge facing developing countries is not only the price, but also the capacity of vaccine manufactures to be able to do so to meet global demand within a short time. The proposal for a patent waiver by India and South Africa has been rejected by developed countries, known for hosting the world leading pharmaceutical companies such US, European Union, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland.
According to the Financial Times, US business groups including pharmaceutical industry representatives, have urged Biden to resist supporting a waiver to IP rules at the WTO, arguing that the proposal led by India and South Africa was too “vague” and “broad”.
The individuals who signed the letter, including Nobel laureates in economics as well as from across the arts and sciences, warned that inequitable vaccine access would impact the global economy and prevent it from recovering.
“The world saw unprecedented development of safe and effective vaccines, in major part thanks to US public investment,” the group wrote. “We all welcome that vaccination rollout in the US and many wealthier countries is bringing hope to their citizens.”
“Yet for the majority of the world that same hope is yet to be seen. New waves of suffering are now rising across the globe. Our global economy cannot rebuild if it remains vulnerable to this virus.” The group warned that fully enforcing IP was “self-defeating for the US” as it hindered global vaccination efforts. “Given artificial global supply shortages, the US economy already risks losing $1.3tn in gross domestic product this year.”
