Gay Ops of American Intel?
A strange thing happened the other day. The blogosphere was swept by the confession of one Tom MacMasters that he was behind a well-known blog supposedly written by a lesbian and called Gay Girl in Damascus. It was convincing for the most part, and he even stole a picture online to identify his blog – which was apparently how he was discovered. His confession was wrenching and the blogosphere (which trends liberal these days) has been virtually convulsed ever since.
On the heels of the MacMasters' incident, another blogger "Paula Brooks," was revealed to be a man, Bill Graber. He had posted some of MacMasters' lesbian musings on HIS lesbian news site. According to the Washington Post, Graber was a 58-year-old retired US air force officer. Graber identified himself as such when called by the Associated Press.
"LezGetReal was not meant to be deceitful or con anyone," he is reported to have said. Apparently he didn't comment on the coincidence of two men secretly operating two separate lesbian blogs, making coincidental contact with each other via email and then, quite by chance, supporting each others' compositional efforts. Graber admittedly helped MacMasters develop his Internet presence.
Here is a possible truth: The Gay Girl in Damascus blog and LezGetReal are part of a sub dominant theme being purveyed by American intelligence agencies that are trying to undermine regimes in both Syria and Libya. The MO would also seem plausible as such Intel teams work in tandem (MacMasters and Graber), with one presenting the meme and the other one endorsing it. This can be seen on many libertarian (freedom-oriented) websites as well, where one will attack and the other endorse.
Already the usual suspects (Reuters, Washington Post and Slate) are producing articles comparing the MacMasters hoax with other hoaxers who "thought faking reports about a perceived truth was a valid form of advocacy." The Reuters article carefully points out that the fraud had gone on for five years though the blog site was only five months old.
How Reuters can establish the five-year mark is a mystery – and is more in line with corroborating MacMasters' potential cover story than debunking him. It is also surprising that such savvy news enterprises don't even mention the possibility that these two men had links to American Intel.
The five month timeline for MacMasters' blog is probably a good deal more accurate than five years and conforms to how intelligence promotions unfold, with a thin back-story measured in months not years. It also conforms almost exactly to the current agitation for regime change in Syria. Graber's website seems to be down now, but a look at the cached version reveals that it has been in existence for three years. He says he was motivated by anger at "don't ask, don't tell."
Of course, it is always possible that all of the above is entirely coincidental. Two straight, white men, one with links to the US military, decide separately to set up their own lesbian blogs. They then met each other via email, though neither knows the other is a man and one, Graber, decides to promote the blog-stories of the other (MacMasters). Stranger things have happened, yes? As Slate informs us. "Sexual disguise is as old as humanity, and posing as a lesbian is merely a natural variant on the practice. It energizes writers as often as it does readers."
MacMasters is admitting nothing as regards US Intel involvement (though many have begun to question how he makes a living and affords extended trips to the Middle East). He published a wrenching apology on the blog site explaining how he always wanted to be a fiction writer and that Amina Arraf, who didn't exist, was a character that he could not discard. He had developed her, he writes, in the following way:
"I noticed that when I, a person with a distinctly Anglo name, made comments on the Middle East, the facts I might present were ignored and I found myself accused of hating America, Jews, etc. I wondered idly whether the same ideas presented by someone with a distinctly Arab and female identity would have the same reaction." (Why he decided that his alter ego would be a LESBIAN is never explained.)
In Libya, reports that Muammar Gaddafi gave his soldiers Viagra to encourage them to perform mass rapes have swept the Internet despite the insanity of the concept. This seems to be deliberate disinformation. Now, we have the spectacle of a young man (40-ish) writing a blog about a young woman who is maltreated in Damascus because of her sexuality. In fact, before he was exposed, MacMasters had her abducted. Here is a post by a purported (fictional) cousin of Arraf called Rania:
I have been on the telephone with both her parents and all that we can say right now is that she is missing. Her father is desperately trying to find out where she is and who has taken her. Unfortunately, there are at least 18 different police formations in Syria as well as multiple different party militias and gangs. We do not know who took her so we do not know who to ask to get her back. It is possible that they are forcibly deporting her.
People's sexuality is a private affair. But in the West, a 50-year battle (sponsored by the elites in our view) has been waged to inject private sexual practices into the public discussion. A decades-long campaign has been waged to reconfigure the state itself to recognize and provide benefits to "others." The meme purveyed is that one is not fully human until one's "rights" are legally enshrined in the pantheon of Western regulatory democracies.
The result has likely been destructive to the family itself, as the very public emphasis on other kinds of lifestyles (let alone legislation and public education) has surely had a corrosive effect on the historical family unit. Additionally, the Anglosphere elites have been able to cultivate an intelligentsia that is entirely constructed around minority – and sexual – issues.
Thus, sexual issues have become an issue of importance not only to the mainstream Western intelligentsia (such as it is) but also to many verbal and committed young men and women overseas. These young men and women look at the West and see that sexual issues are seemingly the most important to the modern Anglo-American intelligentsia, and thus these issues loom large overseas as well. This is also true of "women's issues" in general, which are being used by the Pentagon and American Intel to justify America's serial warring, bombing of women and children, etc.
Enter the CIA, FBI, military intelligence, etc. (We shall refer to the 16 separate American spy agencies as "American intel.") Much American Intel in the lower ranks is made up of young men and women, but mostly young men who go to the same schools and have the same fairly insular views. In fact, they are chosen for these traits.
These young men, mostly, are not only adept at the use of sexual memes for propaganda purposes; they are perhaps, to some degree, fixated on them. Many opponents of the West's (and America's) current activities are targeted by sexual allegations, warranted or not. It is not surprising then, that these young men would design lesbian promotions.
Such promotions were designed to play on the sympathies of the modern, sexualized intelligentsia but also cater to the fixations of the young (or older) man involved in these intelligence agencies. To put it bluntly, to build propaganda around lesbians was at least partially a big joke.
One has to understand what is going on to fully appreciate it. These young men, unfortunately, are involved every day in undermining Western freedoms and in facilitating what can only be described as oppression at home and genocide abroad. They did not join the government in most cases to participate in such things, but this is what they have ended up doing.
Western Intel inevitably enforces the agenda of Western elites that are trying to build a New World Order – the public be damned. "Operation Damascus Lesbian" would seem to be only one tiny example of the gung-ho authoritarianism that now pervades these entities. In this case, the intention was seemingly to illustrate the intolerant and brutal methodologies of the Syrian secret services in the hopes of further undermining the regime. Western leaders apparently intend to make Syria a political appendage, and MacMasters's Arraf spends a good deal of time writing about how horrible the Syrian government is.
Things went wrong. MacMaster's apology, in his own voice, sounds sincere in places, but it mostly sounds shocked. He had no idea his story involving Arraf's abduction would "go viral." In fact, this is what undid him. The State Dept among others started an investigation and lesbian and gay bloggers started to look into the tale and became suspicious.
If he was American Intel, MacMasters was undone by his own success. But what Western Intel is discovering generally is that all the billions (trillions?) they have invested in spying infrastructure is increasingly at risk. There are reports now of hacker incidents focused on the US Senate and the IMF. Even if these are false-flag events, there are plenty of others like them. Likely, it will be increasingly difficult for spy agencies to operate with 20th century impunity, spying on citizens and manipulating them without having the favor returned.
Another interesting point is that the MacMasters incident may have given us a further glimpse into the vast promotional network that the Anglosphere elite has at its disposal. Any important story the elite and its enablers wish to devise and propagate is probably going to be picked up and reported by the wires. Whether it is the endless saga of lies surrounding global warming or Lesbians in Damascus, (or the brilliance of seeming elite puppets Lady Gaga or Julian Assange) anything that furthers the cause of the New World Order is to be reported uncritically to millions and even billions. It is king-making on a massive scale.
Will MacMasters and Graber get into any trouble for this seeming elaborate Intel hoax, over which normal people might go to jail, given the hyper-punitive nature of American justice? What kind of investigation will ensue, if any? Let us watch and wait. I won't hold my breath.

Actually it took I a Dullard to point the DB in the right direction regarding this story, As I knew I couldn't write it with such eloquence, not to take any credit away from the DB's social analysis it is just that there are so many faux social constructs pushed by the elites that some are bound to slip under the DB's radar.

Gramsci's "Long March through the Institutions" is serious business here. Look at what's happened in the West during the last 2 generations to the most significant non-state institutions: marriage, the family, the Church, the Schools/Universities-all slowly dissolved as if by a weak solution of acid. This has come about above and beyond what might seem like the march of social progress since the Renaissance. The result, which may be calculated, is individuals that are isolated, weak, unable to support themselves/dependent on the state.
The most interesting part of this episode is that the fake bloggers 1) had ties to the U.S. military (like the Laurel Canyon musicians/culture leaders in L.A. during the 1960's) 2) Didn't really try to cover their tracks!
Tony's point about the meme being to get people to obsess about matters below the waist rather than above the neck is very good. No more critical thought, conversation or passionate examination of current events. Go smoke some medicinal pot and explore your sexuality. Orgasms and money. The effect of this meme has been most pronounced on the mainline Protestant churches in the U.S. Former bastions of serious, critical thought about the really important issues of life and death have been reduced to think tanks of "inclusivity" and sexuality with absolutely no Christian faith-even a constant denunciation and marginalization of Christian fundamentals.

Thank you once again for another portion of food for thought (and beautifully-worded as always). I've read somewhere that the women's lib movement was also engineered by the sociopathic mofo-elites in order to get women working to bring in a larger tax base and to destroy the traditional family unit.
(PS: Despite the recent media blitz, the spectacularly unoriginal Lady Gaga has seen her latest album tank. If artists such as Joni Mitchell, Billie Holiday, Grace Slick, Janis Joplin, Laura Nyro, etc. came on the scene today they'd be ignored).

"divide-and-conquer inculcating of fear and hatred of 'different' people"
A biblical analogy is in order. Elites and their minions are "the snake in the garden", stating if you join (or tolerate) them in smiting "different others", you can profit, or at least, have a life more in tune with YOUR philosophy, where the alleged" insane and / or antisocial are smited.
Fact is, "The grass is NOT greener on the other side of the hill". We have scaled the summit and all that is visible is "scorched earth", for as far as we can see and conceive, on present destructive course.

Psyops;All memes to control situations to control the themes and to polarise the mind set of people. These tactics are not soley restricted to The Yankee Doodle Dandies. There are a lot of cruel unfair unspeakable things happening to people all over the world. Stereo typing people excluding people divideing and conquering a people is an operation happening from country family members threatening each other over the kitchen table to homophobia to teachers pet to religious zealot to the new man with a different accent to Kafka to the Black fella with kinked hair to Mommy's spoiled boy to this family only looking out for their own to the exclusion and or inclusion of others. Even brand names competing against each other will blackball and put poison in the well to tailor the current in their own favor. Mind games although delivering the desired results for the controller can be friendly, neutral and unfriendly. We can choose to do no harm. Take your inability and flip it into an ability. Judo flip disabilities into abilities. You have the right not to hand your power over to others. When Marie Antoinette said;"Let them eat cake";She might have meant she cared and wanted to share the cake from the party with the starving beyond the gate. When Stalin was reported to have laughed at a baby being boiled in a pot;it might have been a lie. if he did laugh;it probably was maybe hysteria at such horrid madness in times of nasty war. I remember learning anitsocial behavior is psychotic behavior. All mankind should be universal and appreciate that some news out there is a meme to detract from whats goin down. Meme; didn;t really notice that word until reading The Dailey Bell. The only meme i could picture before were the white gloved black beret Frenchmen with white grease paint on their faces mute and acting out beneith Zhe Eiffle Tower. i suspect the Lady Gaga show is a reflection of the corrupt being exposed in a world we usually hadn't noticed or dared to explore because it was too big of a real problem of responsibility to face. You kind of wonder if one were to write of the nuveau evolution of a KGB could wind up getting one fingered by one of Putins cadre. One could end up getting a glowing milkshake at the local drive In Hamburger Heaven Restaurante. Some people are serious and they play for keeps. They make examples of people. Their rules are perhaps more instinctive and determinedly ruthless. There but for the grace of God go i. i pray i never go against God nor go against good people. LIes can be one of the tools out of the devils toolbox. Some claim "To do something right ; you have to do something wrong." When Monahan at Cherry Pont Marine Corps Air Station asked me for $20 dollars for beer because he had been on barracks restriction for so long; i gave it to him." He looked like a young PT Boat 109 Lieutenant John F. Kennedy(Ich bin ein Berliner) and by God; Monahan was a Marine. He's my brother. i did something wrong to do something right; i showed compassion. LIke a Father Flannigan of Boystown Nebraska; Warrant Officer Frank Slavin let me know;"Theres no such thing as a bad Marine."

"The state's promotion of sexual differences is intended to distract people from on the real work of the MIND. Better to have the intelligentsia focus on what's below the waist rather than what's above the neck. Society's emphasis on the genitals rather than the brain for "committed and involved" individuals is surely a successful dominant social theme and one that deserves mention and further attention."
I look forward to further exposition of this meme. This is another prop being knocked out from under the power elite by the internet, by the way. It has changed forever how people meet and select partners, crashed the barrier on access to sexually explicit material (pornography was a fear-based promotion that NOBODY fears any more), and so on. The internet is demolishing the divide-and-conquer inculcating of fear and hatred of 'different' people. Increasingly, people say to themselves, "So effin' what?"
About all that is left for the elite in their work to destroy the family unit are bare carrots and sticks (divorce law, welfare, crushing taxation/regulation forcing both partners to work full-time, and communist-modeled funding of schools). It will take longer for the awakening to grind away at these, but in this regard too, it becomes impossible to ignore forever the reality that the swarm of bureaucrats is really just stealing from one and giving a tiny portion of the loot to another.

I'm actually a Spiritual person who often uses quotes because the eloquence of Scripture, or Shakespeare for that matter, far exceeds my own humble expressiveness. Since my quoting of Scripture apparently upsets you allow me to try it again.
Among other things, rolfs link to "Startling revelations from a Swiss banking insider" contains these excerpts:
"... Some of them like Strauss-Kahn rape women, others are sado maso, or paedophile and many are into Satanism. When you go in some banks you see these satanistic symbols, like in the Rothschild Bank in Zurich. ... You have the inner circle who are into Satanism and then there are the naive or less informed people. ..."
The revelation that Satan is the ruler of this world is hardly startling to anyone who knows the Bible. Back in the day, a minimal level of literacy demanded knowledge of the Bible and Shakespeare. These days, "fire and brimstone" Atheists such as Richard Dawkins celebrate biblical ignorance.

I find it amusing that on a site where most of the feedback involves people questioning every single thing the government does with the belief that most of it is run through the hands of elite bankers that there are so many biblical quotes in the discussions. Organized religion: The greatest meme in the history of the world!
I know the Daily Bell always replies to posts like these by saying (justifiably) that one's own faith isn't a problem unless it is used to coerce people. Well here's a newsflash it is used all the time to coerce people. I would guess a good 25%+ of the people who join the military are joining it to fight a religious war against the bad Muslims.
People don't need education on the glaring holes in the story of every organized religion? NOTE: The key being organized religion not just spirituality.

The Advocate, the holy Spirit that the Father will send in my name--he will teach you everything and remind you of all that (I) told you.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.
You heard me tell you, 'I am going away and I will come back to you.' If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father; for the Father is greater than I.
And now I have told you this before it happens, so that when it happens you may believe.
I will no longer speak much with you, for THE RULER OF THE WORLD [SATAN] is coming. He has no power over me,
but the world must know that I love the Father and that I do just as the Father has commanded me. Get up, let us go.

I choose to believe that humanity will ultimately triumph. If we don't believe this then we are doomed already. Its easy to fixate on all the gore of humanity, but like James M. said "I believe for every negative thing that happens in the world something equally positive is happening at the same time".

I'm not sure what point you are making. I don't think mohammad, jesus, moses, abraham, buddah, krishna, etc. were HOLY. I don't think anyone personally is HOLY.
If I were to select an individual that was HOLY (which I wouldn't) I would select Hypatia of Alexandria, who lived about 400 AD. She was a pagan. She was said to be an excellent mathematician, astronomer, philosopher and she was murdered because she would not convert to Christianity by a large group of men...a very violent death. She had said she could not convert based on "belief" because she needed to question things.
Maybe I should start a religious movement and call Hypatianity?

Btw, Channa what I meant by this quote is that you make some good points viz, pornography and how it relates to man.

'The remarkable material progress of the current age has been more than counterbalanced by its deplorable spiritual decline, to the extent that the souls of men have lost their ability even to grasp obvious truths. It is apparent from a close study of humanity that a hidden and formidable force is pulling it downwards, and man is swiftly being dragged into a pit which is termed Asfalus Safilin (the lowest of the low). Such a complete change has come over the intellects of men that they have come to admire and praise things which are abhorrent and detestable to the spiritual eye. Pure truths are laughed at and ridiculed, and complete submission to God is looked upon as an absurdity.'

I am wondering about the group "anonymous", also. Even though they are coming out strong against the Fed, they don't say anything about what and who are behind the Fed. You couldn't criticize the fed in the past and this is getting stronger now that the Fed has virtually bailed the big banks in US and Europe.
The sexual memes that everyone are talking about are much worse, imo, than what most are saying here. They have taken the natural instincts of both men/women and confused them with violence and degradation. Like pornography. Both men and women have a natural admiration of the opposite sex's physique, etc. I don't think anything negative will happen by looking at naked photos of one another. But what they have done is embedded Our bodies (mens' and womens') in all their beauty with images of violence, degradation, and everything else under the sun. The total outcome is yet to be seen but it does seem that it is having a huge impact on relationships. I think it confuses people because they are stimulated (by using the beauty of the body) but then all the negative image is there as well.
Memes seem to overlap one another (at times) to support each other. The population control crowds (like in the Population Trust) seem to be designed to get people to believe that the population needs to be trimmed by at least 1/3. Good people with good intentions get sucked into it, as Leonardo Di caprio narrating a documentary on the environment, the planet. No mention of overpopulation, but they kept showing communities in Africa that were poor, crowded, etc. Tavistock organization said that there needed to be a reduction in child-bearing age females. They need to get people on board for these "needs". The pornography plays a vital role in this...imo.

To my mind the link below with a revealing interwiev with a high rank swiss banking insider is another strong proof of who is the real face behind the makers of the New World Order and also confirms what David Icke, Maxwell Jordan and so many other brave intellectuals , including here on this site, desribe and try to wake up the world about. According to Benjamin Fulford et al their days are numbered...:

Thanks, nothing there we didn't know, or guess. But to have it spelled out is sickening. Don't even care if it is a real interview or not. Maybe it is a hoax. Doesn't matter. All makes perfect sense. The REALITY is real.

The PE exploits sexuality because it provides profound emotional and psychological access to every single human being on earth.
The primary PE meme carried a secondary submeme: "hoax shows perils of finding truth in blogosphere." Perhaps a Freudian slip to admit that one uses the blogosphere when "finding truth?" A better memer might say "looking for truth."

DB: "The state's promotion of sexual differences is intended to distract people from on the real work of the MIND"
"The state's promotion of IRRELEVANT differences (especially opinions) is intended to distract people from on the real work of establishing and peacefully (tolerating IRRELEVANT differences) living according to TRUTH"
Historically, faux (rationalized) conflict of "my god is better than your god" has been generalized such that "my opinion is better than your opinion" and, in faux fact "justifies" me imposing MY OPINION on those who disagree...

"As a sexually different individual..."
An oxymoron. As individuals, we are, by nature, "different".
Forget who said it, but, paraphrased, "There are two types of people: those who CAN stand in line and conform, and, those who CANNOT".
