The Significance of the Kathy Griffin Head-chopper Photo

UPDATE: CNN has fired her. 

Not being an expert in such matters I can only imagine that when you run an unconventional warfare campaign like the one being conducted against the current president of the United States by the Deep State, various mileposts signify the relative success or failure of the tactics you are employing to demonize said target. You evaluate these achievements as they occur in real time and structure the direction of the project accordingly.

That is my guess as to how the manipulators of psychological warfare campaigns operate. It is only a guess but one based on years of research into the outward projections of their craft.

Such a milepost was reached yesterday when Kathy Griffin, a former mediocre comedian turned reality TV star and perpetual host of various D-list network events, published this photo:

Needless too say, the image stirred up controversy which is exactly what Ms. Griffin wanted.

Syria’s al-Qaeda affiliate escapes from Canada’s terror list

by Evan Dyer, CBC

The Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, currently calling itself Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), has succeeded in getting itself off Canada’s list of designated terrorist entities following its latest identity shift.

That complicates the task of prosecuting Canadians who travel to join the group, send it money or propagandize on its behalf.

It also illustrates the pitfalls of Canada following the lead of the U.S. in designating terror groups…

Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (the Organization for Conquest in the Levant) began life as an expeditionary force called Jabhat al-Nusra (the Support Front), despatched into Syria in 2011 by the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, now “caliph” of the Islamic State (ISIS). Jabhat al-Nusra was led by Syrian jihadist Abu Mohammad al-Jawlani.

The United States put the group on its terrorist list in 2012, as the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, and Canada followed suit.

Al-Baghdadi soon crossed into Syria himself, renouncing his allegiance to al-Qaeda and founding ISIS in April 2013…

Flashback 1976: The Plot Against Harold Wilson, BBC 2006 (smeared him via accusation of him being an agent of Soviet Union… sound familiar?)

Under a project called A Clockwork Orange, British intelligence services worked with other Deep State agencies from around the world as well as with business leaders to undermine the public’s confidence in various left-leaning politicians including their popular prime minister, Harold Wilson. One smear tactic they employed was to suggest Wilson was an agent of the Soviet Union. The billionaire owners of the press outlets aided in this black propaganda operation willingly.

When they could find no connection between Wilson and the Russians, what they ended up doing was looking at all the trips he took to Russia prior to being elected prime minister and they said the Russians MUST have compromised him on something and are blackmailing him to do their dirty work in Britain.

Sound familiar?

Notice, in the first meeting with the reporters, Wilson reportedly told them “business interests” were conspiring to remove him from office.

Flashback Dec. 22, 1963: Harry Truman’s Washington Post Op Ed on the CIA

(The original was pulled from the Washington Post archives. This source preserved the text of it)

UPDATE: Tom K. sent me an email which linked to an article written by Ray McGovern in which he mentioned this op-ed by Harry Truman. It’s a good article on how the CIA has evolved into what it is now now.

By Harry S Truman

(excerpt)(emphasis mine)

…For some time I have been disturbed by the way CIA has been diverted from its original assignment. It has become an operational and at times a policy-making arm of the Government. This has led to trouble and may have compounded our difficulties in several explosive areas.

I never had any thought that when I set up the CIA that it would be injected into peacetime cloak and dagger operations. Some of the complications and embarrassment I think we have experienced are in part attributable to the fact that this quiet intelligence arm of the President has been so removed from its intended role that it is being interpreted as a symbol of sinister and mysterious foreign intrigue—and a subject for cold war enemy propaganda.

With all the nonsense put out by Communist propaganda about “Yankee imperialism,” “exploitive capitalism,” “war-mongering,” “monopolists,” in their name-calling assault on the West, the last thing we needed was for the CIA to be seized upon as something akin to a subverting influence in the affairs of other people.

I well knew the first temporary director of the CIA, Adm. Souers, and the later permanent directors of the CIA, Gen. Hoyt Vandenberg and Allen Dulles. These were men of the highest character, patriotism and integrity—and I assume this is true of all those who continue in charge.

But there are now some searching questions that need to be answered. I, therefore, would like to see the CIA be restored to its original assignment as the intelligence arm of the President, and that whatever else it can properly perform in that special field—and that its operational duties be terminated or properly used elsewhere.

We have grown up as a nation, respected for our free institutions and for our ability to maintain a free and open society. There is something about the way the CIA has been functioning that is casting a shadow over our historic position and I feel that we need to correct it.
