11/16/16 PROJECT PAPERCLIP When Gandalf returned to the United States after a tour in Munich, Germany with his dad during the “Occupation”, he also arrived with Project Paperclip in 1948. Today we learn this from our friends at Coast to Coast AM. Today in Strangeness: November 16th stands as a key date for a pair of staples in the world of conspiracy theory. On this date in 1914, the Federal Reserve opened its doors as the quasi-national bank in the United States, much to the chagrin of many who saw it as a dangerous consolidation of power. Thirty-one years later, in 1945, Project Paperclip saw the United States “import” 88 German scientists to assist in rocket development. Many in the parapolitical research community point to this dubious event as the start of an infiltration of America by darker forces.

LUBBOCK–DEA GESTAPO –CIA NAZIS- Iran–Contra –GEORGE H. W. BUSH
By Gandalf’s Staff 10/31/16 UPDATED THREAT: Iran Sending Elite Fighters Into USA, The first time Iran took Americans hostage was in November of 1979, it initiated the Iran hostage crisis, Richard Griffing and Gandalf were working for KLLL radio in the news department. Revolutionaries, in reflection are part of a great American tradition, had overtaken the US Embasey in Iran. (11/3/16 Iranians bask in anti-American feeling on embassy takeover anniversary…) It was then that we called the Embassy in Iran while the occupation was taking place and one of the students (Muslim Student Followers of the Imam’s Line) answered the main office phone. We requested to speak to the person in charge. They then put us on hold. Richard (news director) could not hang up that phone to save his soul. He was waiting for the interview and scoop of the year. He held on to that phone for hours, all the while chain smoking cigarettes like he was a freight train from Hades. Later on our station manager, one of the best radio men Gandalf has ever had the pleasure to work for, John Frankhouser, was more than a little upset the day he got the phone bill.
It just also so happened at that time the Shaw of Iran’s son was living here in Lubbock and going to flight school at Reese Air Force Base. 6 things you didn’t know about the Iran hostage crisis It was not long after that memorable series of coincidences and events that Chris Alexander the news director at KAMC 28 and KLBK 13 and Gandalf uncovered a CIA Iran-Contra operating here in Lubbock, Texas. The Contras, Cocaine, and U.S. Covert Operations We had discovered that the agent was selling large quantities of cocaine as part of a covert CIA operation. That by a strange chain of events, the secret agent was busted in Lubbock, Texas having sold a kilo to a couple of clueless narcs. These DEA agents moved the “buy” to Lubbock because they knew that this city’s juries indeed were gullible, that they leaned in favor of the prosecution, believing everything law enforcement says on the stand under oath, and that Lubbock juries had the tendency to give long jail time; all of which is at the tax payers expense. The joke is on we the people throughout this entire affair. This time however, their strategic assumption and positioning in this operational alignment bit them on the rear. As fate would have it, the worm had turned. Just as Chris Alexander and Gandalf teamed up to seek the truth and justice, serving in the public interest. The Contra had been placed by DEA in the county jail and that is where Chris and Gandalf discovered him. That agent was later released by the Lubbock sheriff Sonny Keesee and was never to be seen again. On his release the TV stations filed a FOIA request.
The CIA, it was learned by Gandalf, had been trading drugs for guns and cash. The funds and guns were used in Central America, killing many, in the guerrilla wars of El Salvador and Nicaragua. Other funds were perhaps applied to this covert operation from the restricted weapons that were sold to Iran, using Israel as the intermediary in part of a ransom deal for 7 American hostages…arms embargo This all went down in Ronald Reagan’s second term. According to a FOIA document which was in the form of a letter that we had received, this weapons and drugs covert operation was under the direction of vice- president George Bush Sr. Gandalf obtained and read that letter, it was heavily redacted and signed by Bush. CIA involvement in Contra cocaine trafficking

COAST TO COAST 10/19/15 On Sunday night’s program, George Knapp was joined by Academy Award nominated director James Spione, who discussed his film Silenced , which deals with Washington’s increasingly draconian response to whistleblowers, and the devastating personal toll on those who’ve questioned official national security policy. Two of the three whistleblowers highlighted in the film, John Kiriakou and Thomas Drake, later joined the program to share their experiences and reflect on how their lives were affected once they found themselves in the cross-hairs of a vindictive federal government. Spione observed that the climate of fear and security that has enveloped the United States since 9/11 has given way to a situation where whistleblowers are “not just persecuted, they’re prosecuted to an unprecedented degree.” Compounding this troubling issue, he said, is that the whistleblowers who seem to draw the most vociferous response of the government do so because they reveal information which challenges official policy or exposes criminality. He also noted that prosecution of whistleblowers under the Espionage Act has increased significantly under the Obama administration, which has invoked the law “more times that all other administrations combined in the last 100 years.” Ironically, Spione mused, this tenacious approach has led to new whistleblowers taking extreme measures to release information, such as in the case of Edward Snowden, who fled the country in order to be heard. Teen Claims He Hacked CIA Director’s Email During the next 90 minutes, former CIA counterterrorism officer John Kiriakou detailed his harrowing experience being prosecuted as a whistleblower. He explained that the ordeal began after he appeared on ABC News and revealed that the CIA not only had a torture program but that it was sanctioned by the president. This, he said, led to intense scrutiny by the government that culminated with him being charged with multiple felonies which would have sent him to prison for decades. Despite a deep desire to fight these charges in court, Kiriakou lamented that the government strategy in these instances is to overwhelm defendants with a massive amount of charges in the hopes of obtaining a plea deal. As such, he ultimately opted to accept such a deal for lesser charges in order to spare his family from the crippling debt which would arise from a lengthy court battle.

C2C Host: George Noory
Guests: John L. Casey,
In the first half, former national space policy advisor to the White House and Congress as well as President of the Space and Science Research Corporation (SSRC), John L. Casey , spoke about his discovery of a solar cycle that is now reversing from its global warming phase to that of dangerous global cooling for the next thirty years or more. Occurring every 206 years, the sun has begun a period of solar hibernation in which it cuts back on its energy output and ends up making the Earth very cold, he asserted. This cold phase, when it begins in earnest, happens relatively fast, he added.
During this transition period from a warm to cold cycle, we’ll see more extreme weather, Casey noted. According to his research, there’s a high probability of a catastrophic earthquake on the West Coast, as well as along the New Madrid fault, and possibly even in the South Carolina fault zone. These quakes, as well as devastating volcanoes, are associated with the low point of the cooling cycle which occurs during the years 2017 -2038, he cited. Instead of the focus on global warming, he believes the US government should be doing more to get people prepared for major catastrophic quakes.

Author, rock journalist, and paranormal researcher, Susan Masino , discussed the ups, downs, and fantastic stories of the multifaceted rock band AC/DC. She outlined the band’s roots in Australia, their rise to fame in the 1970s, their enormous staying power over the decades, and the darker side of their history. Brothers Angus and Malcolm Young have been in the group since the beginning, and their older brother George, who was a member of the popular 1960s band, the Easybeats, produced their first six albums.
AC/DC was rocked with tragedy when lead singer Bon Scott died in 1980 from alcohol poisoning, just after their huge success with their hit album Highway to Hell . But the band was able to eventually deal with the loss, and replaced Scott with a new singer, Brian Johnson, Masino recalled. She also detailed how when their song “Nightprowler” came out, serial killer Richard Ramirez, known as the “Night Stalker,” claimed this song spoke to him directly, though the band was never into Satanic worship. She talked about how Angus Young experimented with different looks and costumes before settling on his “school boy” uniform which he still wears for performances (the band is currently on tour in Europe), as well as how Malcolm Young retired from the group in 2014, as he suffers from dementia.

In the first half of Tuesday’s show on Coast to Coast, constitutional attorney and president of The Rutherford Institute, John Whitehead , talked about the rise of the police state in the United States. America has become plagued by bureaucracy, secrecy, perpetual wars, militarization, and surveillance, he declared. Essentially, we’ve become a nation of suspects, and the citizenry has very little recourse against any kind of action by the police, he said. By “police” he includes various kinds of law enforcement such as Homeland Security and FBI agents, who have SWAT teams, and use hollow point bullets (which explode on contact). The current US government is not what the Founding Fathers had in mind– it’s a business or corporate concern, Whitehead continued, and the expansion of the Dept. of Homeland Security combined with the NSA could really be considered the new 4th branch of the government. This new branch of government is sending out a signal that they can come after their adversaries– “if you step out of line, we’re going to know everything you do, we can arrest you in the middle of the night,” and you have no privacy, he outlined. The Patriot Act, which eviscerated the Constitution, has authorized military equipment like grenade launchers, tanks, and assault rifles to be given to local police departments, essentially creating a “standing army” which George Washington warned against, he stated.

RICHARD GRIFFING THE SAN ANTONIO LIGHTNING & SHERIFF ORTIZ
Gandalf’s Staff Lubbock Did San Antonio’ s Sheriff have The Lightning’s editor attacked over a news story? … Richard Griffing a good friend and editor of the San Antonio Lightning , called Gandalf weeks before he was attacked, telling Gandalf that he was going after the San Antonio Sheriff in a report with credible, verified, substantiated witnesses. That he was releasing his story in the San Antonio Lightning. In that report we found that the sheriff had been stopped while driving a Mercedes Benz not belonging to him, by SAPD for weaving on the road. After checking with supervisors, the police gave the sheriff a ride to his home, which was outside of their jurisdiction. Richard felt that he might be attacked or even killed by the sheriff and Gandalf promised him he would not let this story go if anything happened to him. Whichit did. Gandalf now finds the following: Bexar Co Jail Sucides Soar and also Sheriff Amadeo Ortiz Using… The story was published. Days—hours—before RG Griffing died, he was walking across the street from his home, and blind-side knocked out. Minding his own business—amidst a major-deep investigation on the sheriffs department—RG was knocked-clean-out and lost two teeth. Sheriff’s office denies rumor of Ortiz DWI – San Antonio Express-News He woke up and called several of his best friends. He never stayed on HOLD long enough to make an official complaint. Sheriff Ortiz pulled over on DWI charge – Discussion on Topix A few days before he—predictably—died—RG Griffing was, for the first time in his old-assed life, attacked on the street, literally. Unrelated ??? to that Fact, Sheriff Amadeo Ortiz was rumored to have been pulled over, repeatedly, by various law enforcement organizations for weaving down the roads. The details surrounding those allegations have gone flat, since Ortiz won the local Democrat nomination for Sheriff. The story broken by Griffing as an exclusive which local media quickly picked up. Sheriff Ortiz might not be a Drunk Driver, and his calls for random checkpoints—like the Nazis—might only be a coincidence. Sheriff Ortiz might just be a good servant of his constituents. The Lightning is checking those details.San Antonio Lightning RIP This story is one of Richard Griffing’s scoops that he was working on when he died… The sheriff lost his bid for re-election.
