Voter adjudication logs, which were available for prior elections, are missing in the 2020 election, evidently removed manually to complicate detection of fraud. • 16 cities and towns, including Detroit, report voter turnout of 100% or more. Top turnout reported by Michigan is North Muskegon, with 781.91% of registered voters voting. • Affidavit of computer forensics examiner Ramsland states: 3,276 precincts in Michigan where Presidential Votes Cast were 84% to 350% of Estimated Voters based on census data. There were 431,954 excess ballots. ‘In the data are four spikes totaling 384,733 ballots allegedly processed in a combined interval of only two hours and 38 minutes. This is physically impossible given the available equipment at the four referenced locations.‘ • Kayleigh McEnany cites 234 pages of sworn affidavits of Wayne County eyewitnesses who saw: a batch of ballots, 60 percent of which had the same signature, a batch of ballots scanned five times, provisional ballots (those that were not supposed to be counted yet until verified that they were legal) put in a tabulation box, poll watchers physically pushed away from counting tables by election officials, election officials covering windows so challengers were unable to observe counting.

Pennsylvania: Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt rules on Nov 12 that ballots received after 8:00 pm on Election Day may not be counted, in accordance with Pennsylvania law; and that instructions from the Secretary of State to extend the deadline for three days ‘lack statutory authority’.

Pennsylvania: Testimony of Rudy Giuliani to Pennsylvania Legislature Nov 26, 2020: ‘We have calculated, and the evidence will show, that 682,770 mail-in ballots were entered into your [Pennsylvania] votes, that were not observed by any single Republican…. We could ask, and you could subpoena, all of the outer envelopes. Under the law of your State, which is set by you [legislators], those ballots are illegal. You sent out in the State — the Commonwealth — of Pennsylvania, 1.8 million absentee ballots. You received back 1.4 million. However, in the count for President, you counted 2.5 million [mail-in ballots]. I don’t know what accounts for that difference in the number of ballots you sent out, and the number of ballots that ended up in the count. That number, 2.5 million, was on your Government website until yesterday. I can’t imagine you could possibly certify without knowing the explanation of that; as well as the explanation to the 22,686 mail-in ballots that were returned on the day they were mailed. How about 32,591 that were returned the day after they were mailed? Another 20,000 were returned BEFORE they were mailed. This is kind of a low count. I guess the crooks in Philadelphia are disappointed in this. They only submitted 8,021 mail-in ballots from dead people.‘ || Source

[On the way to belated recognition of the pathogen as an engineered bio-weapon, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its sidekick the World Health Organization (WHO) cycled through numerous fictitious origin stories. These included bats, pangolins, and snakes as host animals, with fanciful explanations of how a virus might have jumped from one species to another. Facts emerged in reverse order to that in which they occurred, like a film running backwards. (With this timeline we put them back in their actual sequence.) First a lot of people got sick and died, then we learned the virus had a particular affinity for human endothelial cells that line passageways and organs, then it became clear this was not only a respiratory illness. At the same time, the CCP did its best to cover its tracks, destroy patient records, stop publication of the virus genome, silence doctors, prevent outside inspection, hoard supplies of masks and ventilators, and censor unauthorized research — strange behavior for anyone interested in learning where the virus had come from and endeavoring to stop it from spreading. But CCP officials knew where it came from — their own bio-weapons researchers. Eventually the clues, like breadcrumbs almost intentionally dropped, led back to the Wuhan Virology Institute. Its reigning chief scientist, ‘Bat Lady’ Shi Zhengli, admitted she lost some sleep over the possibility of having caused a global pandemic, due to the lab’s notoriously lax safety practices. But her sleep has been undisturbed since re-naming and re-classifying one of the predecessor viruses so that its name was disassociated from the deadly pathogen.]

[But that was not the end of the story. Going further back in time brought the discovery that Shi and her associates in the Chinese bio-weapons group had help form an unlikely quarter — the United States and its National Institutes of Health. If you thought the job of the NIH was to protect public health — a reasonable assumption, given the name — you’d be wrong. That was not how the bureaucrats in charge of NIH and its subunit the National Institute of Allergic and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), viewed their mission. If a bat virus had a hard time leaping over the species barrier from bats to humans, why not help it with a few snippets of SARS-1, a few snippets of AIDS, something to latch onto human endothelial cells with (a spike, say), and anything else to increase its virulence? That was their view — this was all a vast experiment, and if it produced some casualties, well that was all for the greater good of science. So NIH, NIAID, and other dispensers of generous U.S. taxpayer largesse, with technical assistance from another bio-weapons lab at the University of North Carolina, funded a Chinese-made bio-weapon. Like much else that came to pass as this decade drew to a turbulent close, this too had its origins at the beginning of the century, when the NIH patented the disease it had helped to engineer.]

[While a deadly pandemic terrified the American populace, the officials elected and appointed to serve them did not let the crisis go to waste. State Governors and election officials quietly changed election rules, with or without legislative approval, to loosen voting qualifications, increase the numbers of purported absentee voters, enable ‘black-box’ computerized vote tabulation and compilation, and extend deadlines for compiling final vote-counts. These changes, already well-advanced before the pandemic struck, and later justified by the pandemic and its attendant business closures and meeting-bans, effectively determined the outcome of the 2020 vote-count.]

[By the time the spy agencies, investigators, and impeachment accusers admitted they were mistaken about Russia conspiring with a presidential candidate and elected president, it didn’t matter anymore. Illegal snooping, fabrication of false evidence, lying to the secret FISA courts, striking down innocent individuals with overbearing prosecutions, media manipulation and censorship — none of this mattered anymore. Confident of their immunity from prosecution, former officials perceived it was in their career interest to allow revelations of their illegal activities. These revelations appeared years after the fact, as if inconsequential. But they enable us to fill in the blanks in our recollections of the course of events, by substituting truthful accounts for the mind-numbingly deceptive accounts disseminated at the time.]

He asks Zelensky to ‘find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike… I would like to have the Attorney General call you or your people and I would like to get to the bottom of it.‘ Zelensky responds ‘we are hoping very much that Mr Giuliani will be able to travel to Ukraine and we will meet once he comes to Ukraine‘, implying that he does not trust DOJ. Trump then describes Giuliani as ‘highly respected’ and ‘very capable’, adding ‘There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it … It sounds horrible to me.‘ Zelensky replied the issue is ‘making sure to restore the honesty, so we will take care of that and will work on the investigation of the case’.

June 2017: Special Counsel team interviews Dep NSA KT McFarland on communications between Trump and Flynn during transition, with particular reference to the Flynn-Kislyak calls. SC team tries to prevent FBI Flynn case agent William Barnett from participating in McFarland interview. Barnett threatens to report this to Inspector General, believes Special Counsel is ‘trying to get McFarland to change her story to fit the Trump collusion theory’. Barnett: ‘There was always someone at SCO who claimed to have a lead on information that would prove the collusion only to have the information be a dead end’. Source: U.S. Attorney Jeff Jensen interview of FBI Flynn case agent William Barnett on Sept 17, 2020.

The Special Counsel’s leadership is so certain that Trump had directed Flynn to call Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the U.S., that they assume all testimony to the contrary is false. Special Counsel attorneys are frustrated that K.T. McFarland, the incoming deputy National Security Advisor, doesn’t support their theory. ‘Mueller describes McFarland as the ‘key to everything’ because McFarland was the link between Trump, who was at Mar-a-Lago with McFarland, and Flynn, who was in the Dominican Republic on vacation, when [REDACTED] were made,’ the report of Barnett’s interview says. Because of Barnett’s contrary views, members of Mueller’s team even tried to prevent him from participating in interviews with McFarland, leading Barnett to threaten to go to the Inspector General.

During a proffer interview with McFarland, the special counsel team asks no follow-up or clarifying questions, which ‘perplexed’ Barnett. He begins asking direct questions, trying to get facts directly from the subject of the interview. He asks if she knew things for a fact or if she is merely speculating. He asks if she passed information from Trump to Flynn. These direct questions and their clear answers undercut their theory of the case led Special Counsel Attorney Andrew Goldstein to call a time-out and caution Barnett against asking them.

Hunter Biden responds that CEFC Chairman Ye Jianming is ‘coming to be MY partner to be partners with the Bidens, and that in this instance only one player holds the trump card and that’s me.

Timeline of U.S. Political Transformation — Insurance Policy

In which an unexpected election outcome evokes panic among espionage and ‘justice’ officials.

Please see updates at Substack:

§6a. The Insurance Policy, Pre-Election, July – November 2016:

§6b. The Insurance Policy, Post-Election, November 2016 – January 2017

§6. The Insurance Policy, Nov 2016 – May 2017

[Labeling something a ‘conspiracy theory’ is often enough to dismiss it from serious consideration. Yet denying the existence of conspiracies amounts to claiming that every official act is done in public, and that the general public knows in real time everything there is to know about it. That is clearly not the case: Covert action is the rule, not the exception. Knowledge about it takes years and even decades to emerge. That is the premise of this timeline. It is in large part a record of conspiracies unveiled.]

[Recognition-seeking delivers another source of revelations for our timeline. Joe Biden, for example, congratulated himself profusely on his own savoir-faire, before a worshipful audience at the Council on Foreign Relations, in executing a billion-dollar bribe of Ukraine President Poroshenko. The kleptocrat dutifully complied with then Vice-President Biden’s wishes, after checking that President Obama’s wishes were the same, and promptly fired Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor investigating Biden’s son Hunter.]

[Renmin University Economics Professor Di Dongsheng spoke on Chinese TV about his having used people ‘at the top of America’s core inner circle of power and influence’ to ‘fix’ problems with the U.S. Administration.]

[Not to be outdone, Molly Ball wrote proudly in Time magazine, ‘There was a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes, one that both curtailed the protests and coordinated the resistance from CEOs. Both surprises were the result of an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans’ — an agreement between the AFL-CIO and the Chamber of Commerce to endorse prolonging the 2020 vote-count.]

[Former CIA Acting Director John McLaughlin was the first alumnus of the Deep State to acknowledge its existence, while also invoking Divine endorsement for a ‘higher calling’ superseding the Constitution.]

[Conspirators sometimes slip-up and inadvertently disclose secrets potentially damaging to themselves, as when Director of National Intelligence Clapper was overheard by a staff member to instruct Washington Post writer David Ignatius to ‘take the kill shot‘, meaning publish allegations of collusion between Michael Flynn and Russian Ambassador Kislyak.]

[The ‘insurance policy’ was a backup plan to apply the techniques of regime change used by the CIA in Libya and Ukraine to the United States. Immediately after the Nov 2016 election, the CIA and other spy agencies moved to de-stabilize the incoming Administration. Even before the new president took office, the FBI Director brought out the much-circulated dossier to remind the President-Elect ‘there’s more where that came from’. Routine transition meetings with the Russian Ambassador were characterized as collusion to reverse last-minute sanctions imposed by the outgoing Administration. These charges neutralized the Attorney General and caused the removal of the National Security Adviser, the only two officials in positions to reveal and (in the case of the AG) prosecute illegal activities. Next, bureaucratic legerdemain resulted in the appointment of a Special Counsel who staffed his office with people following the ‘insurance policy’ plan. A three-year investigation of non-existent treason paralyzed many of the normal functions of government, but failed to prevent implementation of an economic program that led to unprecedented gains in income and employment, energy independence, and improved terms of trade with China and the EU.]

[Investigations authorized by secret FISA courts, based on allegations known to be false by those requesting warrants, continued throughout most of 2017. These covered the same ground already trod by previous FISA warrants, which were renewed at three-month intervals. FBI officials altered meeting notes, violated the Bureau’s own rules for opening investigations, conflated ‘intelligence’ with ‘criminal’ categories of investigation, permitted outside contractors to search confidential files, and made illegally broad searches of NSA databases, as later adjudged by a FISA court.]

[Thus the ‘insurance policy’ developed during the previous Administration proceeded without legal or constitutional restraint. Agency officials overtly declared they had a ‘higher calling’ than ‘the consent of the governed’.]

They must appear to cooperate with the transition while not disclosing that Trump has been and still is the actual target of FBI investigation. All those in this Oval Office meeting being subject to embarrassing exposure and possible prosecution — for fraudulent allegations Trump was involved in a treasonous plot to collude with Russia, based on one fabricated DNC-funded dossier — they discuss what must be done to prevent discovery by the incoming administration.

Comey advises removing Flynn, who as National Security Adviser would review the FBI’s illegal Russia collusion investigation. Comey cautions against alerting Flynn, and advises not discussing Russia with him, on the grounds that Flynn is a national security risk due to his many conversations with Russian Ambassador Kislyak. While Comey does not indicate how he intends to remove Flynn, handwritten notes by FBI agent Priestap suggest ‘getting him to lie’ (which would be a crime). Biden asks whether the Logan Act could be used, apparently unaware it is only applicable to private citizens and since enactment in 1799 has never been used successfully. Obama instructs those present to inform incoming Trump Administration, while excluding information about previous and continuing secret espionage against Trump.

Strzok texts ‘Don’t do it yet [meaning don’t close the Flynn case]’. Having been informed by Strzok that the FBI case against Flynn is not officially closed despite finding ‘no derogatory information’, Comey keeps the investigation open.

NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers dissents from the ICA conclusion. The ICA report concludes ‘Putin and the Russian Government aspired to help President-elect Trump’s election chances when possible by discrediting Secretary Clinton and publicly contrasting her unfavorably to him’. To protect ‘sources and methods’, proof is not supplied. Conclusions echo those provided by Brennan to Washington Post, New York Times, and NBC during the Dec 9 – 14, 2016 period.

Jan 6, 2017: Comey, Clapper, Brennan and Mike Rogers meet President-elect Trump in Trump Tower to brief him on the Intelligence Community Assessment of Russian election interference. The ICA consists of conclusions and inferences without specifications of overt acts by identifiable individuals. Separately, as planned, Comey asks for a one-on-one briefing with President-elect. Comey tells Trump of the ‘salacious’ Clinton-fabricated allegations, such as the hiring of Russian prostitutes to urinate on a bed in a Moscow hotel that former President Obama had slept in. DNI Dir Clapper had previously briefed Jake Tapper of CNN on these fabrications. Comey’s briefing omits any mention of the origin of the Steele dossier as DNC-paid opposition research (implying that it was an official intelligence report), and also omits its use to obtain FISA warrants, implying that Trump is not an object of the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation. Comey also conceals from Trump the fact that National Security Adviser-designate Flynn is under FBI investigation. Surveillance of Trump staff continues under active (undisclosed) FISA warrant authorizations. || Source

Jan 6, 2017: Comey reports in a memo to Clapper ‘I said I wasn’t saying this was true, only that I wanted him to know both that it had been reported and that the reports were in many hands. I said media like CNN had them and were looking for a news hook‘. Comey’s briefing of Trump supplies the news hook.

Jan 12, 2017: FBI renews FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page, falsely stating that Steele’s information was still reliable because previous information he had reported to the FBI had been verified and used in criminal proceedings; and omitting information received by FBI in Nov and Dec 2016 undermining Steele’s credibility and trustworthiness. FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates again sign the application. Britain’s national security adviser sends letter to outgoing National Security Advisor Susan Rice and NSA-designate Flynn, disavowing former British Secret Service Agent Christopher Steele, calls his credibility into question, and declares him untrustworthy. Flynn later states he does not remember this letter.

The article mentions the Logan Act, a 1799 law prohibiting private individuals from discussing foreign policy with foreign governments. The Logan Act has never been successfully used and is inapplicable to Flynn as a designated public official.

Jan 2017: Assistant Director of FBI Counterintelligence Division Bill Priestap writes handwritten note for meeting to plan an ‘ambush interview’ with Flynn: ‘What is our goal?

Jan 23, 2017: FBI places story in Washington Post stating, ‘FBI reviewed Flynn’s calls with Russian ambassador but found nothing illicit’ and ‘Although Flynn’s contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak were listened to, Flynn himself is not the active target of an investigation, U.S. officials said‘. This reassures Flynn he is not under investigation, so that when interviewed by FBI the following day at the White House, he does not suspect an ambush.

Jan 23, 2017: UK GCHQ chief Robert Hannigan suddenly resigns. Hannigan had shared reports supporting the Russia-collusion narrative with U.S. spy agencies, and had cooperated with requests by President Obama to spy on and supply information about then-candidate Donald Trump in Aug 2016.

Jan 24, 2017: Noticing the case against Flynn is not formally closed, and it is therefore unnecessary to open a new case, Comey on his own initiative and without notifying his nominal superior at DOJ (Acting AG Sally Yates), sends Peter Strzok and Joseph Pientka to the White House for an ambush interview of Flynn about his phone calls to Russian Ambassador Kislyak, despite the fact these calls are unrelated to the previous case against Flynn. Comey does not ask White House Counsel because, as he later explains, he ‘thought he could get away with it‘ since the new Administration was not yet organized. Flynn, reassured based on previous day’s Washington Post article that he is not the target of an FBI investigation, answers questions in an unguarded way.

Jan 25, 2017: DOJ Chief Counsel James Baker, FBI Priestap, and other officials meet to consider options for removing Flynn. They reject Logan Act as inapplicable. Baker asks ‘how could you prosecute Flynn for lying to FBI officials when there was no underlying crime because the contact with Kislyak was normal’. They settle on stirring up a conflict with VP Pence over Pence’s assurances on Jan 15 CBS-TV interview that there had been no contacts between Trump campaign officials and Russians.

Jan 26, 2017: DOJ Yates reinforces this narrative to White House Counsel McGahn by conflating Flynn’s official contacts with Kislyak as normal transition planning, and campaign-type contacts (which had not occurred), implying these activities undercut VP Pence’s TV assurances. When McGahn asks her whether Flynn should be fired, Yates responds ‘that’s not our call’.

It is a textbook example of what federal prosecutors and agents are taught not to do…. the goal of a federal criminal investigation is not to announce our thoughts at a press conference. The goal is to determine whether there is sufficient evidence to justify a federal criminal prosecution, then allow a federal prosecutor who exercises authority delegated by the Attorney General to make a prosecutorial decision, and then – if prosecution is warranted – let the judge and jury determine the facts.

§5. Perfidious Albion and the Walrus, January – June 2016

Dec 2015 – Nov 2016

[The prospect of a U.S. president prioritizing U.S. national interests sowed panic among top Administration officials, whose careers were devoted to the interests of other nations and to international bureaucracies. In the chancelleries of Europe, the groves of academe, the editorial offices and TV-news studios, and in the cloud-chambers of the technocracy, resonated the fear that such a president would be apocalyptically dangerous.]

[With the exponential growth of mass surveillance in the first two decades of the 21st century, the United States entered a new era. Vastly expanding the reach of surveillance to people without the slightest hint of enmity transformed nearly everyone into a de facto enemy of the State, to be spied upon, watched, and monitored for any sign of opposition. With universal espionage, the spy agencies adopted the role of an adversary toward the citizenry. ]

[Accordingly a British ex-spy employed by the governing political party delivered fantastic stories of Russian escapades to all and sundry — to the spy agencies, Congressional committees, State Department, newspapers, Internet aggregators, and anyone else of a mind to credit them. The spy agencies published their assertions in cooperating media, then cited these publications as evidence of their veracity. This technique of mutual verification later blossomed into a quadraphonic medley with the cloud-dwelling technocracy and bottom-dwelling investigators adding their voices.]

Timeline of U.S. Political Transformation — Making Enemies

U.S. mass surveillance targets domestic opponents while ignoring Chinese espionage.

Please see updates to this section at Substack:

§4. Notes on Making Enemies, April 2013 – Dec 2015 and

§4. Making Enemies, April 2013 – December 2015:

April 2013 – Dec 2015

[As revealed by Edward Snowden, the spy agencies had in effect deputized Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Apple, telephone companies, Internet Service Providers, and others to record email messages, telephone conversations, Web-browsing, and virtually everything else done on-line. Despite these revelations, the scope of the spying increased exponentially, and crossed national borders freely, as U.S. and British spies collaborated to eavesdrop on trans-Atlantic conversations and Internet traffic. The bulk of this enormous effort focused on ordinary citizens of whom not the slightest cause for suspicion, let alone the constitutional ‘probable cause’ standard, existed. While Chinese spies were freely helping themselves to U.S. Defense secrets and valuable industrial technology, U.S. spy agencies assessed the American populace to be their worst enemy, judging by where the spying effort was directed.]

[The staggering volume of data, measure in petabytes, hoovered up by the spy agencies was not very good for finding domestic or foreign terrorists, but what it proved to be good at was harassing political opponents like the Tea Party groups. ]

[Anglo-American cooperation materialized during this period in the unlikely person of an unemployed British spy with a penchant for self-dramatization, lacking, however, the literary talent required to supply even a hint of verisimilitude to his fanciful reports of life in Moscow. Fortunately for him, a vodka-addled Russian source in the employ of the Brookings Institution supplied the creative details needed to cobble together a series of notes sold once to a major political party, and then, enterprisingly, the revised edition sold again to the U.S. spy agencies. The cast of characters included an MI5 Director with a name LeCarré might have invented, John Dearlove, supplying a touch of British class without which any spy story would be incomplete.]

[Several occurrences with consequences that sprang seemingly out of nowhere, years later, originated during this period. Little noted or effectively concealed at the time, their later significance merits a place in this part of the timeline. These include continuing payments from China, Ukraine, and Russia to the family of the Vice-President for unspecified services, the U.S. ceding of Iraq to Iran, the shutdown of the DEA investigation of Hezbollah, NIH funding of research enabling bat viruses to attach to human airways, and the removal of hundreds of top military officers for having failed ‘micro-aggression’ training and their replacement with politically compliant officers. All of these proved extremely consequential later.]

§3. A Secret Alliance, August 2010 – March 2013

[The years 2010 – 2013 saw the formation of a secret alliance between the United States and an officially designated terror organization, the Muslim Brotherhood. The purpose of the alliance was to convert street protests in Mideast capitals into regime change, supported by weapons smuggling, terror, and propaganda. The Muslim Brotherhood took over Egypt and Libya, and in collaboration with the U.S. State Department and CIA, was seeking to do the same in Syria and Lebanon. The techniques of regime change in Egypt and Libya were later applied in Ukraine, and to the United States itself, as will be seen in §9 of this timeline. Thus DEA and Treasury continued their investigations of criminal racketeering by Hezbollah, unaware that their investigations would ultimately be shut down. Chinese payments to the family of the Vice-President, bought immunity from espionage charges.]

Timeline of U.S. Political Transformation, Prelude 2001 – 2010

Placing delayed revelations in their actual time-sequence reveals the U.S. election fraud of 2020 growing out of Hugo Chavez’s software investment in 2004, Chinese military advances derived from their hack of DOD in 2007, alliances between spies and an ambitious political candidate dating back to 2008, and the beginnings of a failed campaign to take down the Hezbollah international drug-trafficking empire.

§1. 9/11 and Its Aftermath, 2000 – 2007

[Much of today’s dissolution grew out of actions and policies little-noted when they occurred, decades earlier. They were either not newsworthy, not salient to people other than those ‘in the know’, or intentionally concealed for fear of the negative reaction they would provoke.]

[Long gaps between action and consequence lead to collective amnesia, a sort of brain-fog about how things came to be the way they are. That in turn induces passive acceptance, as if current circumstances were not contingent on prior causes. So here in the early 2000s, visible but unappreciated, are several of the features of contemporary life that loom so large now — mass surveillance, election fraud, and Chinese espionage.]


Dec 14, 1999: Port Angeles (Washington) Customs Inspector Diana Dean thwarts Al Qaida plan to blow up Los Angeles airport by questioning Algerian terrorist Ahmed Ressam, part of a sleeper cell based in Canada.

Jan 28, 2000: An application for a patent on a spike protein virus vaccine for canine coronavirus is filed with the U.S. Patent Office.

Sept 11, 2001: Airline ticket agent Michael Tuohey checks Mohammed Atta onto Flight 11. Tuohey later recalls ‘I said to myself, ‘If this guy doesn’t look like an Arab terrorist, then nothing does‘. But he lets the terrorists board without any enhanced security screening: ‘I gave myself a mental slap, because in this day and age, it’s not nice to say things like this. You’ve checked in hundreds of Arabs and Hindus and Sikhs, and you’ve never done that. I felt kind of embarrassed.‘ || Source: John Schindler, Top Secret Umbra topsecretumbra@substack.com

Sept 11, 2001: Islamists commanded by Osama Bin Laden hijack four passenger planes, flying three of them into the two towers of the World Trade Center in New York, and one of them into the Pentagon in Washington DC. Passengers take control of the fourth plane and crash it into the ground in southwest Pennsylvania before it could reach its intended target, the White House. An FBI field office had previously sent a report of Saudi Arabian students at a flight school in Minnesota seeking instruction in taking off but not landing an airplane. FBI Headquarters ignored the report. More than 3,000 people are killed in the 9/11 attacks.

Oct 4, 2001: In response to 9/11 attack, U.S. Govt authorizes spy agencies to do warrantless mass surveillance, that is, to spy on ordinary citizens without obtaining a warrant stating a reason or ‘probable cause’ of suspicion, in effect repealing the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution. In 2002, the first full year of operation, the total number of people in the U.S. subject to such surveillance is 500 or less. || Source

April 19, 2002: National Institute of Allergic and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Dir Anthony Fauci, and Christopher M Curtis, Boyd Young and Ralph Baric apply for patent on a recombinant (chimeric) DNA means of producing an infectious replication-defective coronavirus specifically targeted for human lung epithelium. The 2002 patent application specifies the ACE-2 binding domain for the S-1 spike protein, exactly as it later came to be known in SARS-CoV2. The pathogen had been created by Ralph Baric at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, under NIH NIAID Grant #GM63228. NIAID exercises the U.S. Government’s ‘march-in’ right to acquire ownership of any research it funds. The patent on this pathogen is later granted as U.S. Patent #727-9327. Dr. Shi Zhengli and Wuhan Virology Institute colleagues increase infectivity by combining an HIV pseudovirus with SARS-CoV-1. || Source

March 10, 2004: With the warrantless spying program (called ‘Stellar Wind’) set to expire, and Attorney General Ashcroft in hospital in intensive care, Acting Attorney General James Comey and FBI Director Robert Mueller threaten to resign rather than approve an extension. Ashcroft, Comey, and Mueller all state their belief that the ‘Stellar Wind’ component on Internet metadata violates the Constitution. They inform President George W Bush that a mass resignation of DOJ lawyers would ensue, imperiling his re-election later in the year. Bush extends the program without the metadata component, over the objections of VP Cheney, averting any resignations.

§2. Monetization of U.S. Foreign Policy, 2008 – 2010

Please see Notes on this section here, and this section at Substack

[With the prospect of a Constitutionally impaired president, the spy agencies vastly expanded the reach of their surveillance and the scope of their influence. Future CIA Director John Brennan and future President Barack Obama formed an alliance whose first overt act was the cleansing of the latter’s passport records. This was followed by legislation repealing the Constitutional protection against ‘unreasonable searches and seizures’, while the U.S. economy was in full meltdown after the bankruptcies of the fourth- and fifth-largest investment banks. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) courts established by the stealth legislation later operated as a parallel though secret Supreme Court, enabling illegal investigations by the FBI on its own initiative, driven by its officials’ personal biases and political preferences.]

[These years also saw atomic deal-making with Russia in which the national security of the United States was secretly exchanged for donations to a personal political foundation. When later revealed, these deals proved extremely embarrassing, though prosecution was averted. Treasonous relations with Russia were later attributed to another person first by fabricating evidence, then reifying the fabrications by having the spy agencies solemnly pore over the suspicious details contrived for their investigation. Even the purported details from a widely circulated ‘dossier’ were provided by a ‘sub-source’, one Igor Danchenko, an employee of the Brookings Institution who had offered jobs in the incoming Obama Administration to his co-workers. Future Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein was acquainted with him by virtue of having arrested and prosecuted him for disorderly behavior in public. Federal officials considered ‘the consent of the governed’ subordinate to a ‘higher calling’ to use newly-available mass-surveillance resources for their own political purposes. The Russia story that first took shape during these years unraveled a decade later, having served its purpose, while far more ruinous penetration of the U.S. government by Chinese spies remained unreported.]

[During these same years, as revealed more than a decade later, Chinese Government agencies paid billions of dollars to the family of the then Vice-President, in exchange for official non-prosecution of illicit technology transfers through industrial espionage. The timeline grants us retrospective foresight by placing these later-revealed consequences in the actual order they occurred.]

[Organizing a new Administration typically takes one-and-a-half to two years. During that initial period, some agencies not ‘in synch’ with policies that cannot be discussed in public continue operating as before. So it was with the Drug Enforcement Administration, whose officials thought they were supposed to round up drug smugglers. They launched an investigation of Hezbollah’s billion-dollar drug-smuggling empire, unaware that the entire investigation would fall victim to a nuclear deal with Iran.]

A Timeline of 21st-century U.S. Political Transformation

Perhaps this timeline will help dispel the collective amnesia, the tendency to tune-out, that engulfs everyone who tries to make sense of what goes on from day to day.

Please see §1. Introduction: A New Method of Understanding the Unprecedented at Substack.

Our knowledge of significant events comes to us in reverse order to their actual occurrence. First something unexpected bursts upon the scene — a war, a political upset, a plague, a terror attack, an economic collapse. Then we learn a little background information. The belligerent parties were already at each others’ throats, the economy had been teetering on the edge of collapse for years, sleeper cells had been lying in wait undetected. Inconvenient facts emerge, implicating people responsible for preventing the very calamity that occurred. Trivial details ‘hiding in plain sight’ take on new salience. Records of cash transactions, secret communications, confidential meetings, travel documents are revealed. Lawsuits, legislative hearings, and FOIA requests extract more information in mind-numbing detail. Recognition-seekers boast about their roles. Conspirators have a falling-out, and blab. Finally a pattern falls into place, or if not a fully coherent pattern, at least a perspective that suggests where to look for answers. [Continued here]
