Is the whole “capture and killing of Baghdadi, head of ISIS” really @POTUS trolling the deep state?
Here is former U.S. President Barack Obama stating: “We’re speeding up training of ISIL forces.”

Here is a theory that current President Donald Trump laid a trap for the Deep State by pretending to share a retaliation plan against Iran for a supposed “attack.”

In fact, according to this theory, President Trump knew that the attack came from Iran only by proxy, meaning that its source was the Deep State.

To trap the culprits, he pretended to inform known compromised parties about his plans to respond, and then waited to see what they would do.

Via screenshot (no author listed) shared by André van Delft on Twitter (unedited):

“Y’all understand what just happened with Iran; right???? Deep State hits two tankers and then shoots down an American drone, which is an act of war. President Trump calls Pelosi and Schumer into his office and details the American response to them which is retaliation using military force. Pelosi and Schumer celebrate outside of Trumps office (captured on film) because they are deep state and they finally dragged Trump into war. Minutes before the military operation was to launch President calls the mission off. Why? Pelosi and Schumer left his office and contacted Brennan who alerted the operatives in Iran to the location of the strike so they could move as many women and children into the hit zone as possible. Once all this played out and President had it all recorded, President called off the strike.”

Here is @POTUS baiting them again by saying “something very big has just happened,” meaning, “you weren’t told.”

Aanirfan, an anonymous blogger, (Aanirfan), citing multiple sources, highlights at least three dubious aspects of the story about the raid on the compound that supposedly led to the capture and killing of head ISIS terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, including:

#1: The staged-looking photo of President Trump, Vice-President Trump and military officials. On the surface, they’re paying close attention, as though they could hear what was going on. But in reality, all they had was video, per New York Times military and intelligence sources. (And if you look closely, they all are looking in different directions, not at the video.)

#2: The fact that the U.S. military destroyed the compound, meaning the evidence of their success.

#3: The allegation, yet to be proven, that al-Baghdadi is an intelligence asset named Simon Elliott.

Regarding the Elliott claim, see photos circulating widely online that have become a topic of discussion and debate.

UK’s Daily Star reported in 2016 on the Simon Elliott story. According to the rumor, his parents are Israeli, and he was trained by the Mossad; in one photo he is pictured with the late U.S. Senator John McCain. An article in Wikispooks yields no confirmation. Journalist Mehdi Hasan essentially calls this a baseless conspiracy theory, citing multiple sources:

“‘It’s utter BS,’ Glenn Greenwald, the investigative journalist who helped break the NSA story, told me. ‘Snowden never said anything like that and no [NSA] documents suggest it.’ Snowden’s lawyer, Ben Wizner, has called the story a hoax.”

However, the Daily Star quotes an unnamed “editor from the Moroccan Times” who states:

“It is worth pointing out that though the piece of news went viral on the net, [Edward] Snowden [himself] did not refute the claims.”

In 2014, an unnamed Kurdish officer stated, about ISIS:

“Everything they have is American — it is all the latest equipment with the big guns, the Humvees.”

Citing other examples, such as Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri, as examples of Mossad-run assets, Aanirfan states:

“The role of IS is to kill Moslems and weaken all of Israel’s enemies…. The aim of Mossad is to wreck all Moslem countries by leading all the Moslem institutions. All the Moslem militants work for Mossad.”

If he is an asset, one has to wonder if “buried at sea” (like Osama bin Ladin) Baghdadi is even dead, or perhaps just “quietly retired” — as I have speculated about Jamal Khashoggi.

Our President has said he will not send our young men and women out to die for nothing anymore, and surely not for the military industrial complex to enrich itself with invented bogeymen.

That there are so many deep staters in DC explains how people could be chanting “lock him up” at the President at a World Series game when he has just supposedly announced the killing of a major terrorist.

It explains the inappropriate Washington Post headline calling Baghdadi (really guys, “Baghdad” — “Baghdadi?”) a cleric of any kind.

The story is a psyop, and they know it.

Remember the famous “situation room” photo where Obama and Clinton are watching the operation to capture bin Laden?

Oddly, Obama photographer Pete Souza suggested that the Trump photo was staged.


In fact, it even seems that Hollywood must know this guy was an actor — because look at what the celebrated actress Jamie Lee Curtis said about having mercy on him!

You know who isn’t fake?

Aid worker Kayla Mueller, who was in fact kidnapped by this out of control band of monsters.

The operation that took place was accurately named for her.

Just to continue with the logic, if Baghdadi is actually working for the DS, would a “raid on the compound” mean that we now have lots of DS evidence? (my photo)

Again to follow the logic, who is the fight over the oil fields actually between? Are we perhaps liberating the oil from the DS and returning it to Syria? (my photo)

Thinking of all this, the coup plotters must be apoplectic.

Their impeachment narrative is all but drowned out.

Their evidence is with the President.

And their assets are being removed from their clutches.

President Trump said Baghdadi was “whimpering and crying,” etc. — does that really sound like a hardened radical Islamic militant who hates the West and wants us out of their land? Or does it sound more like a wimpy Deep Stater who’s been found out?

Honestly, given all the BS the DOD has to spew to support our military strategy, I do not know how they can give a single briefing with a straight face.

Maybe, as if to troll them, that is why the President tweeted them a photo of a “declassified” dog.

The Disappearing Middle Ground

The Disappearing Middle Ground

So I’m in the coffee shop as usual getting my coffee and it is warm-ish and I’m annoyed. The coffee shop is nearby the White House and two men in business suits are sitting and talking to each other. Each one has their own table and they’re talking across the tables, so loud.

The Campaign to Crush Kavanaugh

The Campaign to Crush Kavanaugh

This is about the tragic abandonment of due process in an extraordinarily politicized national climate, one which led to a torrent of accusations and counter-accusations that quickly went over the top.
