Pipeline Pläne durh Syrien: Verhindern des geopolitischen „Shiitischen Halbmonds“

Pipelines gehen zwingend durh Syrien. Syrien spielt daher eine zentrale Rolle und Baschar al Assad hat sich gegen die Saudivariante entschieden, was zussammenfällt mit der Unterstützung der sunnitischen Opposition, die bald gewalttätig wurde. Zuvor war die Beziehung mit dem Westen ausgezeichnet, er war mit Frankreich und USA wieder „best friend“.

Turkey’s Anadolu News Agency, though government-run, is providing remarkably clear and reliable diagrammatic descriptions of the current status of the U.S – and – fundamentalist – Sunni, versus Russia – and – Shia – and – NON – fundamentalist – Sunni, sides, in the current oil-and-gas war in the Middle East, for control over territory in Syria, for construction of oil-and-gas pipelines through Syria supplying fuel into the world’s largest energy-market: Europe. Russia is now the dominant supplier of both oil and gas, but its ally Iran is a Shiite gas-powerhouse that wants to share the market there, and Russia has no objection.

Qatar is a Sunni gas-powerhouse and wants to become the main supplier of gas there, and Saudi Arabia is a Sunni oil-powerhouse, which wants to become the major supplier of oil, but Saudi oil and Qatari gas would be pipelined through secular-controlled (Assad’s) Syria, and this is why the U.S. and its fundamentalist-Sunni allies, the Sauds, and Qataris, are using Al Qaeda and other jihadists to conquer enough of a strip through Syria so that U.S. companies such as Halliburton will be able safely to place pipelines there, to be marketed in Europe by U.S. firms such as Exxon. Iran also wants to pipeline its gas through Syria, and this is one reason why Iran is defending Syria’s government, against the U.S.-Saudi-Qatari-jihadist invasion, which is trying to overthrow and replace Assad.

Here are the most-informative of Anadolu’s war-maps:

The first presents the effort by many countries to eliminate ISIS control over the large Iraqi city of Mosul. A remarkably frank remark made in this map is „An escape corridor into Syria will be left for Daesh [ISIS] so they can vacate Mosul“ – an admission that the U.S. – Saudi – Qatari team want the ISIS jihadists who are in Mosul to relocate into Syria to assist the U.S. – Saudi – Qatari effort there to overthrow and replace the Assad government: 



The second is about the Egyptian government’s trying to assist the Syrian government’s defense against the Saudi – U.S. – Qatari invasion of Syria, at Aleppo, where Syria’s Al Qaeda branch is trying to retain its current control over part of that large city. The Saud family are punishing the Egyptian government for that:



Here is Russia’s proposed gas-pipeline, which would enable Russia to reduce its dependence upon Ukraine (through which Russia currently pipes its gas into Europe). Obama conquered and took over Ukraine in February 2014 via his coup that overthrew the democratically elected neutralist Ukrainian President there:



In addition, there is the following map from oil-price.com:



That map shows the competing Shiia (Russia-backed) and Sunni (U.S.-backed) gas-pipelines into Europe — the central issue in the invasion and defense of Syria.

On 21 September 2016, Gareth Porter headlined „The War Against the Assad Regime Is Not a ‘Pipeline War’“, and he pointed out some errors in Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s account that had been published under the headline „Syria: Another Pipeline War“. Porter argued: „It’s easy to understand why that explanation would be accepted by many anti-war activists: it is in line with the widely accepted theory that all the US wars in the Middle East have been ‘oil wars’ — about getting control of the petroleum resources of the region and denying them to America’s enemies.“

But the ‘pipeline war’ theory is based on false history and it represents a distraction from the real problem of US policy in the Middle East — the US war state’s determination to hold onto its military posture in the region. Porter ignored the key question there, as to why the US war state has a determination to hold onto its military posture in the region. Opening and protecting potential oil-gas-pipeline routes are important reasons why. Clearly, Kennedy’s documentation that the CIA was trying as early as 1949 to overthrow Syria’s secular government so as to allow to the Sauds a means of cheaply transporting their oil through Syria into Europe, remains unaffected by any of the objections that Porter raised to Kennedy’s article. The recent portion of Kennedy’s timeline is affected, but not his basic argument.

Furthermore, any military strategist knows that the US war state is intimately connected to the U.S. oil-and-gas industries, including pipelines (oilfield services) as well as marketing (Exxon etc.). And Porter got entirely wrong what that connection (which he ignored) actually consists of: it consists of U.S. government taxpayer-funded killers for those U.S. international corporations. Here is how Barack Obama put it, when addressing graduating cadets at West Point, America’s premier military-training institution:

Russia’s aggression toward former Soviet states unnerves capitals in Europe, while China’s economic rise and military reach worries its neighbors. From Brazil to India, rising middle classes compete with us, and governments seek a greater say in global forums. And even as developing nations embrace democracy and market economies, 24-hour news and social media makes it impossible to ignore the continuation of sectarian conflicts and failing states and popular uprisings that might have received only passing notice a generation ago.


It will be your generation’s task to respond to this new world. The question we face, the question each of you will face, is not whether America will lead, but how we will lead – not just to secure our peace and prosperity, but also extend peace and prosperity around the globe.

He was saying there that America’s military is in service to U.S.-based international corporations in their competition against those of Russia, Brazil, China, India, and anywhere else in which „rising middle classes compete with us“. Those places are what Gareth Porter referred to as „America’s enemies“.

Economic competitors are „enemies“. Obama thinks that way, and even a progressive journalist such as Porter doesn’t place into a skeptical single – quotation – mark – surround, the phrase ‘America’s enemies’ when that phrase is used in this equational context. On both the right (Obama) and the left (Porter), the equation of a government and of the international corporations that headquarter in its nation — the treatment of the military as being an enforcement-arm for the nation’s international corporations — is simply taken for granted, not questioned, not challenged.

RFK Jr. was correct, notwithstanding some recent timeline-errors. Syria is „Another Pipeline War“, and Obama is merely intensifying it. (On 9 November 2015, I offered a different account than RFK Jr. provided of the recent history — the Obama portion — of the longstanding U.S. aggression against Syria; and it links back to Jonathan Marshall’s excellent articles on that, and to other well-sourced articles, in addition to primary sources, none of which contradict RFK Jr.’s basic view, „Syria: Another Pipeline War“).

Another portion of Porter’s commentary is, however, quite accurate: America’s ‘Defense’ (or mass-killing-abroad) industries (such as Lockheed Martin) are not merely servants of the U.S. government, but are also served by the U.S. government: „the US war state’s determination to hold onto its military posture in the region“ is protection of the major market — the Middle Eastern market — for U.S. ‘Defense’ products and services. It’s not only America’s firms in the oil, gas, and pipelines, industries, which benefit from America’s military; it is also America’s firms in the mass-killing industries, that do.

To the extent that the public (here including Barack Obama and Gareth Porter) do not condemn the presumption that „the business of America is business“, or that a valid function of U.S. – taxpayer – funded military and other foreign-affairs operations is to serve the stockholders of U.S. international corporations, the hell (such as in Syria) will continue. Gareth Porter got lost among the trees because he failed to see (and to point to) that forest.


Starker Beweis, dass an Wikileaks‘ Podesta-Emails nichts verändert wurde: entgegen der Behauptung der Gehackten

Der DKIM Schlüssel zeigt an, ob Email „valid“ ist, also unverändert. Jedes Verändern des Inhalts, der mit dem Schlüssel abgesichert ist, erzeugt ein „invalid“.

Die Emails sind sowiet alle echt, einzig der Zusammenhang ershliesst sich nicht vollständig, wenn nicht die gesamten Emailketten bzw. die relevanten Teile davon vorliegen, um Missinterpretationen zu vermeiden.

Bei Donna Brazile Email ist es der Clinton Server, der den Schlüssel ausgibt.

Was bis jetzt fehlt bei Wikileaks sind die Emails von Hillary selber.


Submitted by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

Anyone with half a brain or an ounce of honesty left, knows that the John Podesta emails released by Wikileaks are authentic. If they weren’t, everyone implicated in them would have immediately and aggressively denied their claims rather than simply change the subject by blurting out some incoherent nonsense about Russia and Vladimir Putin.

So while most of us were already confident in their authenticity, a key tactic of corrupt Democratic operatives has been to try to cast doubt on them being real in order to sway the minds of some of our more cerebrally challenged fellow citizens. As such, any technical proof that the emails are genuine is of great significance, and we can thank Robert Graham of Errata Security for providing this.

He first grabbed my attention on the topic a few days ago with a series of tweets:

He then expanded on his thoughts in a post published yesterday titled, Politifact: Yes we can fact check Kaine’s email.

Here’s what we learn:

This Politifact post muddles over whether the Wikileaks leaked emails have been doctored, specifically the one about Tim Kaine being picked a year ago. The post is wrong — we can verify this email and most of the rest.


In order to bloc spam, emails nowadays contain a form of digital signatures that verify their authenticity. This is automatic, it happens on most modern email systems, without users being aware of it.


This means we can indeed validate most of the Wikileaks leaked DNC/Clinton/Podesta emails. There are many ways to do this, but the easiest is to install the popular Thunderbird email app along with the DKIM Verifier addon. Then go to the Wikileaks site and download the raw source of the email https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/2986.


As you see in the screenshot below, the DKIM signature verifies as true.




If somebody doctored the email, such as changing the date, then the signature would not verify. I try this in the email below, changing the date from 2015 to 2016. This causes the signature to fail.



There are some ways to forge DKIM-signed emails, specifically if the sender uses short keys. When short keys are used, hackers can “crack” them, and sign fraudulent emails. This doesn’t apply to GMail, which uses strong 2048 bit keys, as demonstrated in the following screenshot. (No, the average person isn’t supposed to understand this screen shot, but experts can).




What this means is that the only way this email could’ve been doctored is if there has been an enormous, nation-state level hack of Google to steal their signing key. It’s possible, of course, but extraordinarily improbable. It’s conspiracy-theory level thinking. Google GMail has logs of which emails went through its systems — if there was a nation-state attack able to forge them, Google would know, and they’d be telling us. (For one thing, they’d be forcing password resets on all our accounts).


Since DKIM verifies this email and most of the others, we conclude that Kaine is “pants on fire” lying about this specific email, and “mostly untrue” in his claim that the Wikileaks emails have been doctored.


On the other hand, Wikileaks only shows us some of the emails. We don’t see context. We don’t see other staffers certain it’s going to be somebody else for VP. We don’t see related email discusses that cast this one in a different light. So of course whether this (verified) email means they’d firmly chosen Kaine is “mostly unproven”. The purpose of this document isn’t diagnosing what the emails mean, only the claims by Hillary’s people that these emails have been “doctored”.


As a side note, I offer a 1-BTC (one bit coin, ~$600 at today’s exchange rate) bounty to anybody who can prove me wrong. If you can doctor the above email, then you win the bounty. Some rules apply (i.e. it needs to be a real doctored email, not a trick). I offer this bounty because already people are trying to cast doubt on whether DKIM works, without offering any evidence. Put up or shut up.

Once the above gets in front of a wider audience, expect Russia demonization from Democratic hacks to go exponential.

Great work Mr. Graham.

Partielle Cyberattacke auf USA

Wikileaks fordert seine Unterstützer auf, die Cyberattacken einzustellen. Offenbar gibt es hier einen Zusammenhang.



Bildschirmfoto 2016-10-22 um 03.08.57.png


After two major, allegedly, cyber attacks targeted a little known internet infrastructure company, Dyn, earlier today disrupting access to dozens of websites on Friday, and preventing some users from accessing PayPal, Twitter and Spotify, moments ago the DNS service provider said that a third attack has been launched. From Reuters:


The source of the „millions“ of malware attacks are so-called „smart“ products, or everyday products around the house which are hooked up to the internet. So, while it may be difficult to pin this particular attack on Putin – though we are sure the „17 agencies“ will try – one  can blame their „smart“ toaster, „smart“ lightbulb“ and „smart“ toilet for making Twitter inaccessible.

As Reuters also adds, it was not immediately clear who was responsible for the outages that began in the Eastern United States, and then spread to other parts of the country and Western Europe.

U.S. officials told Reuters that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation were investigating. The disruptions come at a time of unprecedented fears about the cyber threat in the United States, where hackers have breached political organizations and election agencies.

Here is the punchline: Homeland Security last week issued a warning about a powerful new approach for blocking access to websites – hackers infecting routers, printers, smart TVs and other connected devices with malware that turns them into „bot“ armies that overwhelm website servers in distributed denial of service attacks.

So…. your smart doorbell may just be hiding the internet terminator that will collapse the internet and prevent you from accessing your electronic cash in the bank.

*  *  *

Dyn said it had resolved one morning attack, which disrupted operations for about two hours, but disclosed a second a few hours later that was causing further disruptions. Dyn initially said the outage was limited to the Eastern United States. Amazon later reported that the issue was affecting users in Western Europe. Twitter and some news sites could not be accessed by some users in London late on Friday evening.

PayPal Holdings Inc said that the outage prevented some customers in „certain regions“ from making payments. But fear not: the money in your bank is „safe.“

* * *

Dyn is a Manchester, New Hampshire-based provider of services for managing domain name servers (DNS), which act as switchboards connecting internet traffic. Requests to access sites are transmitted through DNS servers that direct them to computers that host websites. Its customers include some of the world’s biggest corporations and Internet firms, such as Pfizer, Visa, Netflix and Twitter, SoundCloud and BT.

And the best part: „Dyn said it was still trying to determine how the attack led to the outage but that its first priority was restoring service.“

In other words, the company has no idea how the hackers hacked not just it, but the entire internet.

Wahlbetrug in NY: How to do it

Alan Schulkin, Commissioner of Board of Elections NYC erklärt auf einer Weihnachtsfeier 2015, wie in NYC der Wahlbetrug vor sich geht.

The Board of Elections in the City of New York is an administrative body of ten Commissioners, two from each borough upon recommendation by both political parties and then appointed by the City Council for a term of four years. The Commissioners appoint a bipartisan staff to oversee the daily activities of its main and five borough offices.

The Board is responsible under New York State Election Law for the following:

  • Voter registration, outreach and processing
  • Maintain and update voter records
  • Processing and verification of candidate petitions/documents
  • Campaign finance disclosures of candidates and campaign committees
  • Recruiting, training and assigning the various Election Day officers to conduct elections
  • Operate poll site locations
  • Maintain, repair, setup and deploy the Election Day operation equipment
  • Ensure each voter their right to vote at the polls or by absentee ballot
  • Canvassing and certification of the vote
  • Voter education, notification and dissemination of election information
  • Preparation of maps of various political subdivisions.

Die US-Medien stehen auf Seite von Clinton

Der Beleg:

Die Ausfälle, welche sich Trump erlaubt, sind schlimm und zeichnen das Bild eines Egomanen, der allerdings nicht allein steht. Wenn Trump behauptet, dass Bill Clinton ebenso spricht, dann glaube ich das sofort. Es ist das die Verachtung gegenüber anderen Menschen, die nicht in diesen Macht- und Geldzirkel gehören und deshalb Freiwild sind.

Wobei nicht vergessen werden darf, dass die Clinton Familie und die Trump Familie zuvor bestens über Jahre hinweg miteinander ausgekommen sind. Best buddies sozusagen. Alle Abneigung ist also mehr Show als echte Abscheu vor dem Charakter des anderen. Allerdings kennen sie gegenseitig einige schmutzigen Geheimnisse und wenn diese im Wahlkampf benutzt werden, dann ist der „Schmerz“ echt. Denn Trump etwa hat die „Bestechlichkeit“ der Clintons früher schon genutzt und er gehört in die gleiche Milliardärsschicht wie die Clintons. Der Unterschied ist, dass die Geldgeber und einflussreichen Firmen die Clintons gegenüber Trump bevorzugen. Hillary hat verlässlich für die „Donors“ geliefert, während Trump diesen Leistungsausweis nicht besitzt. Was Obama der geldelite versprochen hat, dürfte ebenfalls interessant sein, denn er bekam ja den Vorzug gegenüber Clinton im Rennen 2008.
