Will Trump’s organized crime activity be buried by a bipartisan coverup?

International Affairs professor Michael Brenner writes:

“Mueller supposedly has forwarded some material to federal and New York State prosecutors who have clear legal authority in those domains. It has been known for at least two years, though, that substantial grounds (and evidence) already existed to bring several cases to a grand jury. That suggests that serious action never will be taken. For one things, a number of prominent people would be exposed: e.g. Bibi Netanyahu, the heads of the Russo-Israeli mafias, Felix Sater, the twice convicted felon and Trump ‘counsellor’ who avoided a second prison term by agreeing to inform for the FBI and CIA but in fact worked both sides of the street, and god knows who else. Just as the Panama Papers scandal disappeared over the horizon, and the big 5 financial families got away with massive money-laundering for the drug cartels, and Deutsche Bank was granted immunity by Angela Merkel despite their multiple criminal activities, so will the Trump affair die out in obscurity.”

In this interview we discuss Trump-Russia and the deep state, disagree about 9/11, but agree that high-level corruption is out of control.

Michael Brenner is Professor of International Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh; a Senior Fellow at the Center for Transatlantic Relations, SAIS-Johns Hopkins (Washington, D.C.), contributor to research and consulting projects on Euro-American security and economic issues. He publishes and teaches in the fields of American foreign policy, Euro-American relations, and the European Union.

  1. see if you can figure out why this movie got no (((theatre distribution))):

  2. Mueller does not have jurisdiction over Germany’s banks or Russia. Maybe, the FBI should worry about things on the American people’s top-5 priority list per Gallup. These include law-related things, like stopping the illegal alien invasion in the USA and making sure that staff don’t drop the ball, failing to follow up on leads that predicted previous mass shootings in America’s public schools.

    Come to think of it, Mueller doesn’t have jurisdiction over foreign national journalists, like Julian Assange, either. There certainly have been a series of gruesome, evil murders of journalists around the world, including the evil murders of a female journalist in Cyprus and a young couple in Slovenia. But there are plenty of things unattended to in the USA, the home of the FBI, like wanton illegal immigration and a 300% increase in the frequency of mass shootings between 2011 — 2014.

    Does he reference the Las Vegas shooting at about 12 minutes?

  4. The Russian Mafia isn’t Russian, it’s (((Russian))), just as it is in the US. They just use Russians (or Italians in the US) as front men.

    Anything specific, other than the fact that the Russian mob is mostly ((()))?

    Trump did business with cement companies run by mafioso thugs because they also controlled the unions and would call strikes if crossed. He was basically a target for shakedowns, and Trump knew those people were not anyone to profitably do business with. I am sure Russian -Israeli organised crime would be the same. Anything to do with the Mafia back in the days of Gotti was massively investigated Trump is too wary and careful with his money to get burned that way.

    As Halifax observed, men often mistake themselves but they never forget themselves, so I would think it is neither conspiracy as Barrett says or the incompetence which Brenner suggests. You did not need to be in the CIA to have an inkling. In fact the whole plan was virtually public knowledge beforehand. It was broadcast on the BBC well before 9/11 that mullahs in London mosques were advocating the highjacking of airplanes and crashing them into American skyscrapers. This fact was subsequently alluded to by BBC reporters in the aftermath of 9/11.

    I think it is becoming clear that a disproportionate amount of FBI and NY DA’s resources were put into chasing the Mafia instead of Muslim terrorism. Giuliani made such a reputation on the back of prosecuting the Mafia, and then the FBI had a household name like Gotti to go after, that the careerists in law enforcement doubled down on a bunch of low level racketeers, even after the first WTC attack.

    The belief that somehow the Mafia was more of a threat to New York than al Qaeda — that caused the FBI to let their guard down on the bin Laden threat. […]

    There is now little doubt that if the Feds had devoted as much energy to a surveillance of Sphinx as they had to the Ravenite Social Club, they would have been in the middle of the 9/11 plot months before Black Tuesday. Because in July of 2001, Khalid al-Midhar and Salem al-Hazmi got their fake I.D.’s delivered to them in a mailbox at the identical location the FBI had been onto in the decade since El Sayyid Nosair had killed Meier Kahane. The man who supplied those fake ID’s that allowed al-Midhar and al-Hazmi to board A.A. Flight #77 that hit the Pentagon, was none other than Mohammed El-Attriss the co-incorporator of Sphinx with Waleed al-Noor – whom Patrick Fitzgerald had put on the unindicted co-conspirators list along with bin Laden and Ali Mohamed in 1995.

    that, and the fact that it’s race-realist throughout. Note, for instance, the early juxtaposition of the 2 rich “Russian” mafia Jew sisters (played to the hilt by 2 Jewesses, Gal Gadot and Kate Winslett) reading to the half-‘groid kid (while getting their feet manicured)…with the elementally poor-but-good, White cop’s wife reading to their White kid. It’s full of subtle stuff like this, but you have to see it a few times to pick it all out. I also like the way they got actual spic ‘bangers…playing spic ‘bangers. That worked.

    I saw this film a year ago and I can tell you exectly why it got no distribution:

    It was a shitty, mean-spirited story of horrible people robbing, stealing, killing for no good reasons. Yeah there were reasons but none of them were good ones.

    Furthermore the tragic ending made absoutely no sense and was just a stupid contrivance. Despite good acting from Gal Gadot, Woody and Alfeck, nothing could save this movie.

    I needed to shower and scrub myself 10 times after watching this horrible nonsense.

    Horrible in every respect.

    I know that wasn’t what you were expecting. It’s because of the Jews. Ugh. Had nothing to do with that, but a lot to do with how the movie tested and it tested poorly because if you watch it, you hate humanity and yourself just from this movie.

    Highly unrecommended.

    actually, Triple-9 is a fine description of how a Jew-owned world operates. Corruption from the top-down, and from the bottom-up. Naturally,

    there are those who can’t take the truth. And

    those who try to suppress the truth.

    you’re both.

  11. @restless94110

    25 minutes in , not bad. I really have to agree the jew stuff kept this movie down.
