Who Benefitted from 9/11? Putin and Russia Did
Early in his reign, Putin was keen to remove the Taliban in Afghanistan. The Taliban had put a stop to opium cultivation, which disrupted the heroin business for Semion Mogilevich and the Russian mob, Putin’s allies in his new government. Also, the Taliban was not down with the pipeline project, which the legitimate Russian economy needed. He pressured outgoing president Bill Clinton to move on them in 2000, to no avail.
In late June 2001, an Indian magazine reported that a joint force was being planned, with Russian, US, and Indian forces combining to oust the Taliban.**
In July 2001, at the Slovenian Summit where he met face to face with Putin for the first time, new president George W. Bush “looked the man in the eye…found him very straightforward and trustworthy…[and] was able to get a sense of his soul.” I happen to think Bush is savvier than popular reports about him indicate, but even so, Putin manipulating him is like the Viscount de Valmont seducing Cécile de Volanges: “It’s too easy. It is…She’ll be on her back before you’d unwrapped the first bunch of flowers.” A sense of his soul? Really? Putin is a master manipulator, willing and able to convey whatever he wants to convey while never backing down on his commitment to defeating the United States; he showed Bush only what he wanted Bush to see.
A Fox News dispatch from 2002 reported that in August 2001, Putin had warned the Bush government of a plot involving suicidal hijackers planning to attack the U.S.** This was likely a case of Putin spinning the story after the fact, but it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that he had some inkling of what was going down. Our intelligence services heard chatter, after all, which Bush famously ignored.
Putin managed to be the first world leader to call the president after the 9/11 attacks—pledging his total support, of course.*
On 12 September 2001, a Russian newspaper claimed that Russian intelligence knew who was behind the attacks and who had implemented them, and that Putin had warned Bush a few weeks in advance.** Again, this might have been nothing more than propaganda, portraying the new Russian leader as powerful and in the know, in stark contrast to the reeling Americans.
The birthday of Felix Dzerzhinsky—founder of the Cheka, and Putin’s hero—was September 11. This is probably a coincidence, although Russians, like American neo-Nazis, do enjoy this kind of symbolism.
Another Felix, Felix Sater, Donald John Trump’s erstwhile business partner, was a Confidential Informant for the FBI, and a good one: he helped the U.S. government track down Osama bin Laden. How would a guy known for solid Russian mob contacts be able to find UBL, presumably an enemy of the Russians? Further, if the Russians knew where bin Laden was hiding, why did Putin not just relay that intel to Bush or Obama directly, since he was so eager to offer his support? Is there any reality in which Felix Sater knew where bin Laden was holed up, but spymaster extraordinaire Putin did not?
In a 2018 New York Times piece about Bruce Ohr, one of the FBI’s top Russian mob experts, Ohr’s longtime deputy had this to say: “Until 9/11, organized crime was one of the main priority criminal programs at the Justice Department. Russian organized crime was a focus. Bruce knew a lot of the Russia stuff and traveled there.” In other words, 9/11 had the net result of taking the FBI’s focus away from the Russian mob. This means that the primary beneficiary of the worst terrorist attack on US soil was not Osama bin Laden or the forces of “radical Islam,” but rather the despotic leader of the same country that has been our greatest enemy since 1945—as well as his ruthless partners in the criminal underworld.
In other words, the guy who came to power by covertly blowing up a few Moscow apartment buildings also benefited enormously when the towers fell.
I have to wonder if Putin was somehow behind the nuking of the WTC?

Collapse of Democracy
The scenes have been disturbingly familiar to CIA analysts accustomed to monitoring scenes of societal unraveling abroad — the massing of protesters, the ensuing crackdowns and the awkwardly staged displays of strength by a leader determined to project authority.
In interviews and posts on social media in recent days, current and former U.S. intelligence officials have expressed dismay at the similarity between events at home and the signs of decline or democratic regression they were trained to detect in other nations. “I’ve seen this kind of violence,” said Gail Helt, a former CIA analyst responsible for tracking developments in China and Southeast Asia. “This is what autocrats do. This is what happens in countries before a collapse. It really does unnerve me.”

Putin's Plan Included Race Riots... Are False Flag Terror Attacks Next?
🆘Mayday🆘: Putin is taking over the world by working with other ruthless autocrats to install puppets in all democratic countries.
This thead [sic] details Putin’s plan to take over the USA using two puppets over whom he appears to have complete control: Trump and Bernie Sanders
Putin already had his plan in place to take over the USA when he took office in the year 2000. He had several compromised Americans under his complete control thanks to the efforts of the Soviet-era KGB. Two of those compromised Americans were Trump and, it appears, Bernie. Putin’s plan hinged on controlling *BOTH* candidates in a US Presidential election. That way, he could cheat to get them both elected in the primaries (which no one pays as much attention to), but then cease cheating in the general election to avoid detection. Putin did not care whether Trump or Bernie won the election. Putin has no ideology. He’s fine with a right wing autocrat or a left wing autocrat, so long as he is an autocrat. Had Bernie won the election, he too would be trying to install himself as a dictator as Trump is doing. Alas, Bernie couldn’t beat Hillary, so Putin had to scramble to cheat in the general election by calling in a host of shady characters, which he knew was very risky.
Guys like Manafort were going to make it obvious that he was cheating, but he had to go for broke. Trump’s long-standing ties to Russia are well known and well documented. He was compromised by the Soviets on his many trips there in the 1980s.
What is less well-known is that Putin has scripted everything that has happened with Trump since Putin took power in the year 2000. In 2000, Putin’s top operative in the US was Felix Sater. Sater appeared to be a low-level Russian mafioso, busted by the Feds in 1998, who then became a confidential informant, providing US authorities with info he claimed to obtain by infiltrating Russian military intelligence.
In reality, Sater appears to have been a Russian military intelligence operative, and the info he gave the Feds was to help them bust the Italian mob and so the Russian mob could control NY. Sater also gave the Feds info on Al-Qaeda, mostly to distract them and gain trust. In 2000, Trump was both broke and compromised by Russia. Sater visited Trump in 2000 and went into business with him, funneling Russian money into Trump tower projects and golf courses to make him appear to be a successful businessman and enhance his chances of winning election.
Meanwhile, Putin was negotiating a TV deal with Mark Burnett for a reality show where contestants visit the Russian Mir space station.
From September 2000: NBC was the winner in the multimillion-dollar bidding to air an out-of-this-world project from Mark Burnett, the producer behind the hit show "Survivor." https://www.nbcnews.com/id/15424344/ns/technology_and_science-space/t/nbc-launching-space-odyssey/
That show never happened, but Burnett’s next big project was The Apprentice, which was designed to whitewash Trump’s image and, again, make him appear to be a successful businessman and strong candidate for POTUS.
Investigation would be required to determine what Burnett knew. Note: There are never any coincidences in a Putin op. Everything that appears coincidental is staged to look like a coincidence but is really part of the plan.
We’ve covered three so far: Manafort, Sater, and The Apprentice. All were meticulously planned to look coincidental.
Because of his ties to Russian money, Trump has had to carefully hide his finances and refuse to turn over his tax returns. We need to see that information immediately because it will prove Trump is controlled by Putin.
Bernie’s ties to Russia are less obvious because he does not have the financial ties required to make Trump appear to be a successful businessman.
Bernie is a left wing extremist who likely needed little convincing to join a plan to install him as a left wing autocrat. Investigation is required to determine exactly how Putin came to control Bernie.
And it seems Bernie is in fact under investigation. Mueller established that the Russian’s actively supported Bernie’s 2016 campaign. Manafort’s former partner, Tad Devine, worked on Bernie’s 2016 campaign. Devine and the Bernie campaign got a hold of Hillary’s campaign data during the primaries under suspicious circumstances.
Documents Show Sanders Staffers Breached Clinton Voter Data Sanders' campaign said it had fired a staff member who accessed the Clinton campaign's data.
We know from the Mueller Report Manafort also was focused on voter data, and funneling it to Russia. It cannot be a coincidence that Manafort and Devine worked for Trump and Bernie, and appear to have focused on weaponinzing voter data. There are no coincidences in a Putin op.
Moving on to 2020, US Intelligence briefed Bernie in January 2020, telling him Russia was trying to help him win, and maybe even telling him he was under investigation. When Bernie sat on the info, US Intellligence went public with it on February 21, 2020. Russia Is Said to Be Interfering to Aid Sanders in Democratic Primaries The nominal Democratic front-runner denounced Russia’s efforts to attack American democracy. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/21/us/politics/bernie-sanders-russia.html
US Intelligence took the extraordinary step of keeping their knowledge of Russia’s plot to help Sanders secret from Trump, implying Trump was involved in the plot, deemed untrustworthy, or both.

US Intelligence keeping Trump in the dark on Russia’s Bernie plan also tells us US Intelligence knows how to keep Trump out of investigations. And that means they likely kept Trump out of their counterintelligence investigation into Trump’s ties to Russia.
We’ll get to that. Russia’s interference in the 2020 Dem primaries almost certainly involved using puppet candidates to crowd the field, take votes from Biden, and attack him in the debates, all to help Bernie win.
Hillary told us that Gabbard is a Putin puppet. Putin likely had others.
Bernie dropped out of the race and gave a lukewarm endorsement of Biden. It’s not clear whether Bernie did that because he’s now cooperating wirh US Intelligence or if Putin decided he needed to maintain Bernie’s credibility to use him again in the future. My guess is the latter.
Bernie’s 2020 campaign and media surrogates attack any suggestion of Russian election interference and suggest it is a hoax. They also spread disinformation in the same ways Russia does. Bernie’s campaign and media surrogates should be investigated.
Mueller told us in his July testimony the FBI counterintelligence investigation was ongoing and covered areas beyond his scope of investigating criminal interference in the election. Mueller did not investigate whether Trump was compromised. The FBI did.
The FBI counterintelligence investigation is over. The Senate Intel Committee completed its report on that investigation and submitted it to the Director of National Intelligence for declassification on May 15. We must see that report.
Putin appears to realize that the counterintelligence investigation is a big problem. Many efforts were made to shut that investigation down and, once it was completed, Putin appears to have executed a plan to take America by force.
US Intelligence warned us in May 2019 Russia was trying to provoke race riots. This warning must have enraged Trump. DNI Dan Coats was quickly ushered out of the job. Russian documents reveal desire to sow racial discord — and violence — in the U.S.
The revelations come as U.S. intelligence agencies have warned of probable Russian meddling in the 2020 election. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna1008051
We received a second warning from US Intelligence that Russia was trying to spark race riots in March 2020.

There are no coincidences in a Putin op.
Russia almost certainly helped orchestrate the execution of George Floyd. It’s also not a coincidence that Trump held a rally in Minneapolis in October 2019 and worked to inflame tensions and radicalize the Minneapolis police.
The plan appears to have been to incite and inflame race riots, have Trump invoke the Insurrection Act, and take the states by force. The military didn’t go along with it, but this may cause Putin to stage false flag terrorist attacks in the US to make the military engage.
Putin is certainly not above such a thing. He killed hundreds of Russians in staged bombings of buldings to consolidate his own power in 1999.

As a second back-up, Russia and Bernie may have used puppets in the 2018 midterm elections as long range candidates for POTUS in 2024. Radical left wing candidates supported by Bernie in 2018 should be investigated.
I intend to remain anonymous and this will be my only tweet. It is now up to you to spread this info here and elsewhere. You’ve been wondering what you can do to help. Now is your chance. Do it! This account will be deleted in about a week, so work fast.
P.S. There appear to have been coordinated plots to paint Biden as a groper when he announced his campaign April 2019, and as a sexual predator when he became presumptive nominee. Tara Reade once proclaimed allegiance to Putin and she used Bernie surrogates to spread her story.
Related thread from the now deleted account Uncle Blazer (@blakesmustache):
Trump had the motive, opportunity, and means to start a race war designed to cause the infection, death, and incarceration of black voters.
Motive: Biden needs to turn out the black vote to win. Black voters in South Carolina saved Biden’s campaign and Biden is destroying Trump in polls of black voters.
Obama and other black leaders are backing Biden and it’s starting to look like record black turnout in November.
Opportunity: At a press conference on April 7, Trump had a joyous epiphany that COVID-19 kills black people at a disproportionate rate.
Means: Within weeks of realizing the pandemic was killing black people at a disproportionate rate, Trump dissolved his pandemic task force and insisted that America reopen despite the risks.
But just reopening wasn’t enough. Trump needed to draw out black people in particular to infect them with the virus. Better yet, large crowds of *rioting* black people, giving Trump an excuse to call in military police to arrest them. George Floyd protests live updates: Anger floods cities across the US; Pentagon could order military police to Minneapolis, report says Protests nationwide turned violent as demonstrators expressed anger over George Floyd's death by police.

Killing and incarcerating black people *always* has been a cornerstone of GOP electoral strategy. The “War on Drugs” was all about flooding black neighborhoods with drugs to kill and incarcerate them, complete with mandatory minimum sentences and termination of voting rights. Trump is backed by Russia, and starting a race war in the US has been a primary goal of Putin’s Russia for many years.
Russian military intelligence specializes in Active Measures operations designed to do things like starting a race war.
Putin absolutely could have orchestrated the execution of George Floyd. And let’s not forget that Trump is a white supremacist who has been working to incite a race war for many years, and he’s done nothing but throw gasoline on the fire ever since Floyd was executed.
And Minnesota is a perfect place to start a race war. It’s struggled with racial violence and is a swing state with a Democratic governor who won’t help Trump cheat, so Trump could really use a wave of infection and incarceration crashing through Minnesota’s black community. We can’t discount the possibility that Floyd’s execution was orchestrated to start a race war and draw large crowds of black people out of their homes and into the jaws of the virus and the riot police.
And even if it wasn’t orchestrated, Trump is capitalizing on it. Is it really a stretch to think that Trump is trying to incite a race war in an act of desperation to save his fledgling presidential campaign from a tsunami of black voters? No, it’s really not.
We were warned two months ago that something exactly like this was coming from Russian military intelligence.

Trump had to disembowel the Intelligence Community so no one could catch Russia in the act. And Barr is drawing attention from Russia by blaming left wing extremists for agitating protesters even though he knows the Russians are encouraging right *and* left wing groups.
