Venezuela Breaks Ties With Brazil As Rousseff Impeachment Takes Effect

Via MintPressNews Anon HQ- The suspended Brazilian president, Dilma Rousseff has been permanently removed from office by the country’s senate in an impeachment vote on Wednesday August 31, 2016.

Rousseff was suspended in May 2016, after the senate voted to go ahead with the impeachment process. Accused of moving funds between government budgets, Rousseff was said to be manipulating the country’s economic status, in efforts to be re-elected for a second office term in 2014. Although media noted a Rousseff consistently denying the charge, arguing that her right-wing political rivals were trying to remove her from office, and had been doing so ever since she was re-elected.

After giving her a chance to defend herself during the trial, senators voted overwhelmingly with a  61-20 outcome, thus removing Rousseff permanently from office and as president of the country. Until her suspension and removal, she had served as the first female president of the vast South American country, which economists say has now fallen into recession.

Some senators had pressed for Rousseff’s barring from holding any public office in the country for eight years, in addition to her removal. However, that vote failed to make it, meaning theoretically, she could still return to the country’s politics if she is interested. A general election is scheduled to take place in the country in 2018.

Michel Temer, who has served as interim president since Rousseff’s suspension in May, has officially been sworn in as the permanent president of the country. He will now serve out the remainder of Rousseff’s term. Temer served as vice president to Rousseff. It was speculated that Temer had worked for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of the United States, with WikiLeaks recently confirming the speculation of his CIA employment. Some leftist commentators also suspect that the United States has secretly played a role in the ouster of Rousseff.

Rousseff was elected to the Brazilian Workers’ Party, an extreme left-wing political party with strong socialist views. Due to this difference in political ideologies, Brazil, under the Workers’ Party, distances itself from the United States. The party had ruled Brazil for 13 years, prior to the ouster of Rousseff.

After her removal was announced, Rousseff told her supporters that she will appeal against her impeachment, simply because she is innocent.  “Right now, I will not say goodbye to you. I am certain I can say: ‘See you soon. They have convicted an innocent person and carried out a parliamentary coup,”Rousseff said in her address.

This is the second time Brazil has removed its serving president from office. Former president, Fernando Affonso Collor de Mello resigned, in a failed attempt to stop his trial of impeachment by the country’s senate in 1992. After his resignation from the presidency, the impeachment trial on charges of corruption continued. Collor de Mello was found guilty by the senate and sentenced to disqualification – from holding elected office for eight years.

Meanwhile, in solidarity with the Brazilian Workers’ Party, Venezuela’s leftist government has announced it has broken diplomatic relations with Brazil due to the impeachment of Rousseff. The government said it has recalled its ambassador from Brasilia.

A statement from Caracas, authorized by the country’s president, Nicolas Maduro described Rousseff’s impeachment and removal as a parliamentary coup, stating the withdrawal of its ambassador is definitive.

The statement further argued that the political process against Rousseff violates democracy and the Brazilian constitution. The Venezuelan government repeated the allegation that the removal was secretly orchestrated by the United States, in its attack against leftist movements in Latin America.

Venezuela and Brazil have been a part of a group of allied leftist-led countries in the region, in recent years. Venezuela too, is facing serious economic challenges. The government has openly accused the West, especially the United States, of being behind the economic challenges the country is currently facing.

Ex-CIA Director Just Endorsed Hillary: What You’re Not Being Told

(ANTIMEDIA) Alice Salles — Michael J. Morell, the former director and deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) between 2010 and 2013, is close to Hillary Clinton. But you wouldn’t know just that by asking.

Once he left the CIA, Morell became a Senior Counselor for Beacon Global Strategies, a consulting firm founded by Philippe Reines — a longtime ally of Clinton. In a recent op-ed for The New York Times, Morell details why he is supporting the Democrat in November.

As observed by Gawker, the 33-year CIA veteran goes to great lengths in his op-ed to paint his position as nonpartisan — but he fails to mention that he, indeed, has close ties to his candidate.

I served presidents of both parties,” Morell writes. “I was at President George W. Bush’s side when we were attacked on Sept. 11 [and] as deputy director of the agency, I was with President Obama when we killed Osama bin Laden in 2011. … I am neither a registered Democrat nor a registered Republican. In my 40 years of voting, I have pulled the lever for candidates of both parties. As a government official, I have always been silent about my preference for president.”

But Morell’s boss at Beacon Global Strategies, Philippe Reines, is often described as the “puppet master” when it comes to Clinton and her campaign.

Recently, Reines was mentioned in the documentary Weiner, a film that chronicles former congressman Anthony Weiner’s 2013 campaign for New York City mayor. Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, has been a Clinton aide since 1996 and now serves as vice-chair of her election campaign.

During the film, Abedin is seen taking orders from Reines in multiple occasions, according to The Daily Beast, which summarized the documentary. “When the wheels begin to fall off of Weiner’s 2013 mayoral campaign in the wake of yet another sexting scandal,” The Daily Beast reports, “Abedin is captured — through a series of surreptitious phone calls—taking orders from Hillary Clinton’s right-hand man (and ex-deputy assistant secretary of state),” Reines, which highlights the reach of the Clinton machine.

In the New York Times op-ed, Morell — who now works for “Clinton’s right-hand man”— says the Democrat would be the best choice for president because she’s “prepared, detail-oriented, thoughtful, inquisitive and willing to change her mind if presented with a compelling argument.” He observed all this, he says, while working with her during her tenure as secretary of state.

According to the CIA veteran, Clinton understands that “America is an exceptional nation that must lead in the world for the country to remain secure and prosperous,” and he vouches for her “capacity to make the most difficult decision of all — whether to put young American women and men in harm’s way.”

On the surface, Morell’s comments seem identical to what President Barack Obama has said about his former secretary of state. But Morell’s involvement with Clinton on a professional level outside of the realm of government may offer other clues as to what is motivating him to stand by the Democrat.

According to Beacon Global Strategies’ own website, its firm focuses on “International Policy, Defense, Cyber, Intelligence, and Homeland Security.” According to LitleSis, a database of liaisons between members of government and private industries, one of Beacon’s top clients is none other than the Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. Other high-profile clients include Republican Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz.

The Intercept reported on this link between Beacon Global Strategies, Clinton, Rubio, and Cruz back in 2015.

According to the December 2015 piece:

Beacon Global Strategies’ seed funding came from Claude Fontheim, a former Clinton adviser who now serves as a lobbyist to the U.S.-China Exchange Foundation, a nonprofit reportedly used by Chinese government officials and Hong Kong tycoons to shape American policy toward China.”

Despite Morell’s claims that the “dangers that flow from Mr. Trump’s character …. [are] damaging our national security,” a close look at the former CIA director’s professional ties to Clinton may prompt us to question whether his op-ed was but a mere attempt to stand up for one of her top clients. After all, Morell failed to disclose the fact his company provides high-profile foreign policy guidance” to the candidate he’s now endorsing. But he also failed to disclose that his firm is funded by lobbyists that work in lockstep with the Chinese government — another entity that may not see Donald Trump as a viable presidential candidate, which could also help explain why the firm is so invested in boosting Clinton’s public image.

US Officials Blow the Whistle on Secret CIA, Mossad Operation in Syria

US Officials Blow the Whistle on Secret CIA, Mossad Operation in Syria.

Detonating a car bomb in a civilian-populated area and denying any involvement in the attack is called terrorism when our enemies do it.

But what if the terror attack is backed by Israel and the United States?

Speaking only under the condition of anonymity, 5 former U.S. intelligence officials told The Washington Post that the Central Intelligence Agency tracked Imad Mughniyah for at least a year before killing him in a joint operation with the Israeli Secret Intelligence Service.

By studying Mughniyah’s daily routine, a strategy for the attack was masterminded and carried out in secret by the ‘good guys’. A truth which remained untold until last week.

According to their report, it was Israel who initially approached the CIA about the joint assassination, but former U.S. President George W. Bush is who authorized the operation after securing approval from the Attorney General, the Director of National Intelligence, the National Security Adviser, and the Justice Department.

It’s also illegal.

–EXECUTIVE ORDER 12333, signed into law by U.S. President Ronald Reagan on December 4th, 1981.

No person employed by or acting on behalf of the United States Government shall engage in or conspire to engage in assassination.”

–EXECUTIVE ORDER 12036signed into law by U.S. President Jimmy Carter on January 24, 1978.

No person employed by or acting on behalf of the United States Government shall engage in, or conspire to engage in, assassination.”

–EXECUTIVE ORDER 11905, created and signed into law by U.S. President Gerald R. Ford on February 18, 1976.

No employee of the United States Government shall engage in, or conspire to engage in, political assassination.”

After testing the bomb more than 25 times at the CIA’s Harvey Point base in North Carolina, the CIA provided the device to the Israeli Secret Intelligence Service to plant in a spare tire on Mughniyah’s car.

The way it was set up, the U.S. could object and call it off, but it could not execute,” a former U.S. official said.

Following the assassination, Italian Foreign Minister Massimo D’Alema called the car bombing an act of terror. Hezbollah leader Nasrallah blamed the assassination on Israel. The investigation carried out by the Syrian government into the attack did not identify a culprit, but determined Mughniyah was killed by a car bomb that was detonated by remote.

As it turns out, this is exactly what these five U.S. officials are now claiming had happened. The device was triggered remotely from Tel Aviv by agents with the Israeli Secret Intelligence Service in communication withCIA operatives on the ground. Facial recognition technology was used to identify Mughniyah as he walked out of a restaurant minutes before the bomb was detonated.

Following the attack, former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert denied any Israeli involvement with the car bombing.

Israel rejects the attempt by terror groups to attribute to it any involvement in this incident. We have nothing further to add,” said former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in 2008, following the attack.

Meanwhile, Israeli officials celebrated the news of Mughniyah’s death.

The acting U.S. Director of National Intelligence, Mike McConnell, suggested the Syrian government, or perhaps internal Hezbollah factions, were responsible for the assassination. As it turns out, this narrative was nearly the opposite of reality.

At the time, McConnell claimed U.S. intelligence agencies were investigating his ‘conspiracy theory’. Now many will now surely recognize it as ‘CIA propaganda’ designed to manipulate the narrative told by U.S. corporate media outlets in 2008 while covering the car bombing assassination of Mughniyah.

There’s some evidence that it may have been internal Hezbollah. It may have been Syria. We don’t know yet, and we’re trying to sort that out.” – Mike McConnell

For decades, U.S. officials accused Imad Mughniyah of masterminding several attacks, most notably the bombing of the 1983 U.S. Embassy in Beirut that killed several CIA agents, though no legitimate evidence of his role has been released.

The extraordinarily close cooperation between the CIA and the Israeli Secret Intelligence Service suggests that secret assassination operations by these intelligence agencies, a tactic considered by many to be a ‘terrorist act’, are probably not uncommon.

Russia To Ban Pokemon GO Because of Links To CIA

Putin To Ban Pokemon GO From Russia Due To Links To CIA

pokemon go preff

by Baxter Dmitry

Vladimir Putin is set to ban Pokemon GO from Russia after an internal Kremlin investigation revealed the viral augmented reality smartphone game has direct links to the CIA and wider intelligence community and is being used to secretly gather data on a colossal scale.

 Young people are being tricked into giving up their privacy to these intelligence agencies, according to Kremlin sources, and while playing the game they act as unwitting intelligence gatherers for the CIA. The game has an extensive list of intrusive tracking permissions, and it is these ‘fine print clauses’ that raised eyebrows in the Kremlin and sparked the ongoing investigation.

The game’s creator, Niantec, is closely linked to the CIA. Niantec CEO John Hanke created Keyhole in 2001 – which was later bought by Google.

Most of the money used to create Keyhole came from the National Geo-Spatial Intelligence Agency and the CIA.

Pokemon GO is the pinnacle of Hanke’s intelligence gathering career thus far. He is a New World Order intelligence operative whose career has been creating ingenious ways to spy on unsuspecting citizens and siphon the information back to intelligence agencies.

 With the launch of the viral game, the CIA effectively recruited millions of unaware, distracted people to work as intelligence and surveillance operatives, gathering previously time consuming, expensive data for the intelligence agency.

An agency that wants footage of the inside of a home or building can now place desirable Pokemon there, and naive citizens will collect the footage for them.

 Putin, who has promised to destroy the New World Order in 2016, believes the augmented reality smartphone game is a case of wolf in sheep’s clothing.

The game hasn’t been released in Russia yet, however some Russian Pokemon fans have gained access and have started playing the game in Moscow, prompting Putin to warn them to stay away from his residence and government buildings over security fears.

The game looks set to have a limited life span in Russia, and other countries are showing signs of following suit in banning the CIA-funded game over security concerns.

China, the world’s biggest gaming and smartphone market, has expressed reservations about the game, believing it could be a Trojan horse for offensive military action by the United States and Japan.

Pokemon GO represents the latest tool to ensnare people. It is a form of hypnotism and could have sinister consequences. The New World Order have corralled these young people and are using them to create caches of hi-res data-rich images of their surroundings – including personal spaces – that get collated and stored by the CIA.

Kremlin sources believe the most objectionable clause in the Pokemon GO contract being signed by young people all over the world is the line: “We may disclose any information about you (or your authorized child) that is in our possession or control to government or law enforcement officials or private parties.”

In other words, everything your smartphone camera captures while you are attempting to capture Pokemon can and will be used against you in a court of law.

New Bill Would Expose CIA’s Relationship With Hollywood !

An amendment added to Congress’ annual intelligence spending bill may help the public gain a better idea of the U.S. government’s relationship with Hollywood.

According to VICE News, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), and committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC), included an amendment to S. 3017 that would require the Director of National Intelligence to submit reports detailing the relationship between the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) agencies and Hollywood. It would also require 15 other agencies to disclose the nature of their relationships with the film industry. These reports would have to be presented annually to congressional oversight committees.

Between 2006 and 2011, VICE reported, the CIA’s Office of Public Affairs (OPA) had a role in at least 22 of the U.S. entertainment industry’s projects. Some of the productions listed by VICE included the films Argo and Zero Dark Thirty, television shows like Top Chef and Covert Affairs, and documentaries such as the History channel’s Air Americaand the BBC’s The Secret War on Terror. The book, The Devil’s Light, also had the help of the CIA.

Some of the most controversial findings regarding the relationship between OPA officials and Hollywood insiders were tied to the blockbuster, Zero Dark Thirty.

According to the redacted and previously classified December 2012 CIA report released byJudicial Watch, the CIA granted “‘secret level’ access to the makers of the movie Zero Dark Thirty.” According to VICE, “filmmakers Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal showered CIA officers involved in the operation with gifts and received unprecedented access, which included the disclosure of classified information to Bigelow and Boal by CIA director Leon Panetta.”

While these revealing facts shocked the world at the time of their release, the relationship between the CIA and the entertainment industry actually dates back to the 1950s.

According to an interview with Public Radio International, Tricia Jenkins, author of The CIA in Hollywood, says that the CIA “developed a think tank to fight communist ideology, which negotiated the rights to George Orwell’s ‘Animal Farm’ – getting a talking pig on the screen 20 years before ‘Charlotte’s Web.’” The agency pressed for “line changes in 1950s scripts to make black characters more dignified, and white characters more tolerant” in order to promote “an attractive image of America to a world picking sides in the Cold War.”

In 1996, PRI reports, the CIA employed a Hollywood liaison. Chase Brandon was the cousin of actor Tommy Lee Jones, a relationship that lent the agency a great number of valuable Hollywood connections. After Brandon was brought on, Jenkins explains, the portrayal of the CIA changed:

 Before the 1990s, in films like ‘Three Days of the Condor’, the CIA was portrayed as evil, amoral assassins, or sometimes buffoons, like Max on the TV show ‘Get Smart’.

“Now,” Jenkins told PRI, “it’s a much more favorable presentation. Frequently being depicted as a moral organization that is highly efficient. It rarely makes mistakes, it’s needed more than ever.”

PRI reports that some of the productions that had received support from the CIA since the 1990s included The Sum of All Fears. Television productions such as 24, Homeland, and Alias, which ran in the 2000s, also received CIA guidance and input. Uglier Hollywood portraits have also been produced without the CIA consent, such as Syriana, which was developed with the help of former agents.

 Once Feinstein’s and Burr’s amendment, along the Intelligence Authorization bill, is voted on by the Senate, we may know more about the relationship between Hollywood and the CIA. However, a review date is yet to be scheduled.
