IRAQ. Al Anbar governorate. November 5, 2005. A Marine from Fox Co. 2nd Battalion 1st Marines holds his M-16 rifle with pictures of suspected insurgents during the first day of Operation Steel Curtain.
Operation Steel Curtain was a military endeavour executed by coalition forces in early November 2005 to reduce the flow of foreign insurgents crossing the border and joining the Iraqi insurgency.
U.S. officials reported that the operation killed 139 AQI insurgents and took 256 more prisoners, and considered it successful. Around 10 U.S. Marines and an unknown number of Iraqi soldiers died. There were also at least 60 civilians killed, 10 being children.
Nearly 2,000 Palestinians have been killed in the recent Israeli offensive against Gaza, including many civilian women and children – innocents blasted apart by the modern weaponry of the IDF.
Still, why not celebrate the campaign, an operation UN humanitarian chief Navi Pillay said likely included war crimes, by wearing a t-shirt decorated with the words “DEPLOYED, DESTROYED, ENJOYED, GAZA 2014”?
Project Veritas was able to infiltrate the private political consulting company Democracy Partners and its contractor the Foval Group which have ties to the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton Campaign.
According to Foval Group founder Scott Foval, “The
campaign (Hillary Clinton campaign) pays the DNC, DNC pays Democracy
partners, Democracy Partners pays the Foval group, Foval Group goes and
executes the shit on the ground.”
What Scott Foval means by “shit on the ground” is the agitation that
starts disruptions and places bad press on whichever Trump or Pence
event they decided to hit.
An operative by the name of Aaron Minter, who goes by the alias Aaron
Black, told project Project Veritas that the disruption in Chicago
during Trump’s rally in March was an operation of Democracy Partners.
the Chicago Protest when they shut all that, that was us. It was more
him (Bob Creamer, founder of Democracy Partners) than me,” said
Aaron Minter, “but none of this was suppose to come back to us, because
we want it coming from people, we don’t want it to come from the
It is not totally clear why Minter, a full-time employee of Democracy
Partners uses an alias, but one can assume that it is to shield his
true identity from being tied into the violence he helps stir.
According to Project Veritas, Minter’s job is to direct the “spontaneous” protests at Trump and Pence rallies.
“So if we do a protest and if its branded a DNC protest, right away the press is going to say partisan,” Minter went on.
“But if I’m in there coordinating with all the groups on the ground and
sort of playing field general but they are the ones talking to the
cameras, then its actually people. But if we send out press advisories
with DNC on them and Clinton campaign doesn’t have that same effect.”
Zulema Rodriguez, who works in the office of the Foval Group, appears on
the video to also claim credit for the violent protest that prevented
the Chicago Trump rally from taking place
“So B and I did the Chicago Trump Event where we shut it down like all the yeah..” Zulema said before being interrupted.
Project Veritas’ video makes it clear that the disruption coordinated
by Democracy Partners and the Foval Group is indeed that, coordinated
and planned out disruption.
“We have to be careful because what we don’t need is
for it to show up on CNN that the DNC paid ‘X’ people to..that’s not
going to happen,” Scott Foval was caught saying on undercover video.
According to the founder of Democracy Partners Bob Creamer, his group
has “a call with the campaign every day to go over the focuses that
need to be undertaken.”
Zulema Rodriguez also admitted to having daily calls with the Clinton Campaign.

Trump supporters have frequently been the victims of real, as opposed to staged, violence.
While the mainstream media has tried to paint Trump
supporters as violent and over the top, it turns out that it was
actually the other side of the aisle who was being just that.

NYT: Christie Team Assessing How Fast a 2012 Campaign Could Be Mounted
(New York Times)
WASHINGTON — Chris Christie’s political advisers are working to determine whether they could move fast enough to set up effective political operations in Iowa and New Hampshire in the wake of a relentless courtship aimed at persuading Mr. Christie, the governor of New Jersey, to plunge into the race for the Republican presidential nomination, according to operatives briefed on the preparations.
Mr. Christie has not yet decided whether to run and has not authorized the start of a full-fledged campaign operation. But with the governor now seriously considering getting in, his strategists — many of them veterans of Rudolph W. Giuliani’s 2008 campaign — are internally assessing the financial and logistical challenges of mounting a race with less than 100 days until voting is likely to begin.
The corpse of a Japanese soldier floats by an American Landing Vehicle Tracked (LVT) amphibious warfare vehicle during the first wave of assaults approaching the beaches during the Battle of Peleliu (Operation Stalemate II.) The battle was fought from 15 September 1944 to 27 November 1944 on the Pacific island of
Peleliu where U.S. Marines of the First Marine Divison (part of
III Marine Expeditionary Force), and later soldiers of the U.S. Army’s 81st Infantry Division, fought to capture an airstrip from the Imperial Japanese Army on the small coral island. The Battle of Peleliu was part of a larger American offensive campaign known as the Mariana and Palau Islands Campaign (Operation Forager) launched by U.S. forces against the Japanese in the Mariana Islands and Palau between June and November 1944.

The incomplete French battleship Jean Bart sailing from Casablanca to Cherbourg for repairs in 1945. On 8 November 1942, while under construction in Casablanca, controlled by the
Vichy French government, the ship had a short gun duel with the battleship USS Massachusetts, before being attacked by dive bombers from USS Ranger. The confrontation became known as the Naval Battle of
Jean Bart took seven 406 mm (16.0 in) shells but only one penetrated into an empty secondary magazine. Another temporarily jammed her only operational turret, ending the battle. A little charred but in essence undamaged, the ship was completed after the wars end, entering service for just four years.
A German soldier cradles his pet dog as other troops carry supplies from aircraft at an airfield in Norway during Operation Weserübung, the German assault and invasion on Denmark and Norway and the opening operation of the Norwegian Campaign. In the early morning of 9 April 1940 (Wesertag; “Weser Day”), Germany invaded both Denmark and Norway, ostensibly as a preventive maneuver against a planned, and openly discussed, Franco-British occupation of Norway with Norwegian consent. In April, the U.K. and France came to Norway’s aid with an expeditionary force. Despite moderate success in the northern parts of Norway, Germany’s invasion of France in May eventually compelled the Allies to withdraw and the Norwegian government to seek exile in London. The campaign ended with the occupation of Norway by Germany and the continued fighting of exiled Norwegian forces from abroad and Norwegian partisans on the home front. Norway. 10 April 1940.
