Just a short article this week, due to IT issues.  My laptop was attacked by malware and the people in south Florida who promised to fix it (who will be named if the promised refund does not come through!) left it in such a state it is barely usable.  The good news is that the new laptop will have a high-speed, dual-core processor, a lovely touch screen and a useful 750 gig hard drive.  I am also about to make the plunge into Windows 8, which I am assured actually works, unlike most Microsoft software.  I’ll keep you posted!
Congratulations to the Egyptian Military Government on its success in maintaining order in Egypt.      I respectfully agree with the Egyptian Ambassador in London, HE Ashraf El Kholy, that there are reasonable grounds for supposing that numbers of the Moslem Brotherhood have been shot by their own side, in order to build international pressure on the Egyptian authorities.
Any idea that the Moslem Brotherhood protesters are peaceful must firmly be rejected.  They are clearly shooting and throwing stones at the security forces.   The Moslem Brotherhood are an Islamo-fascist organisation who do not believe in democracy, or human rights, save as a means to an end.  This point was well made in the Daily Telegraph this morning, in a letter from Ian Harris, in Bognor Regis, where the sea air clearly helps to blow away the cobwebs.
As I write the Egyptian military authorities are giving the world an object lesson in how to clear a mosque, with proportionate use of force.  I have been impressed by their restraint and pleased by the low number of casualties.
The sooner Morsi is given a fair trial for treason and executed the better.  The longer he lives the more people who will die.  As a bit of a bloodthirsty tyrant himself he won’t mind that of course.   It’s a rare politician who worries about the dead bodies he or she has to step over on the way to power.   The ‘she’ should not necessarily be read as a reference to Senator Clinton by the way.
Democracy in the Western sense simply isn’t possible in Egypt.  Elections are, but it’s what happens between elections which defines a democracy.  If winning an election were all that counted then the Third Reich was a democracy.  As we all know the Third Reich came about as the result of the 1932 German general election, but it was no more democratic or respectful of human rights than its successor, the European Union.
Sir Anthony Eden MC is coming well out of all this.  He was right to want to back dear old King Farouk, Egypt’s last legitimate ruler, and 100% right to go to war with Egypt after her unlawful seizure of the Suez Canal.  The State Department have never got Egypt, hence Secretary Kerry’s hilarious statement at Foggy Bottom this week, in response to a little bit of violence in Cairo.  With respect nobody does vacuous or fatuous statements better than Kerry.  This one was a real doozy.  You would find more meaning in an episode of Dallas, especially if it starred dear old Larry Hagman (come back Larry, we all miss you!).
This week’s Silly Employer of the Week award, in Britain at any rate, goes to Stagecoach, a bus company in Britain which does not quite match the reputation for punctuality, passenger comfort and low fares of Wells Fargo.  Despite the name their buses are actually diesel-powered, not horse-drawn, and are rarely attacked by Red Indians, sorry Native Indians, sorry Native Americans.  Stagecoach buses lack in-bus entertainment.  Sensibly, when a couple of oompah bands, including a touring band from Germany, caught the Number 66 to Worsborough Mill (no, I’d never heard of it either), rather than accepting a fare, the enterprising driver asked them to play and entertain the passengers.  Sadly, he has been sacked, even though the oompah bands offered to pay their fares.   I hope he is reinstated when his case comes up before the Employment Tribunal.
Another sad story this week from Thames Valley, where the police allow German Intelligence free reign, partly because, as that nice man be Ben Fulford exposed on Veterans Today, they report to the Cabinet Office, which in turn reports to the Director, GO2.  A courageous Dutch Resistance fighter, Franciscus Van de Gender, seems to have been dragged from his home in Woodley, near Reading, in Berkshire (not far from the old Handley Page factory) in the middle of the night and thrown into the Thames.  He drowned, his body being washed up near Shiplake, in Oxfordshire.  He was 91.
GO2, being German and part of the DVD, would have had access to Van de Gender’s old Gestapo file.  Most of the Gestapo files in Amsterdam went over to Dachau at the end of ‘44.  Having courageous allies like this old man being dragged from their homes in the middle of the night and murdered is no more acceptable than Kristallnacht.  I hope his death is avenged.  I am sure it will have been noted by that nice man Sybrand van Hulst at AIVD in the Hague.  If Special Branch at Kidlington were involved in this murder they won’t get any help from me.  If you read of a Thames Valley Special Branch officer being found floating dead in a canal in Amsterdam you will know that the AIVD have scored one for the Good Guys, not that I am encouraging anything unlawful you understand.  AIVD have a deserved reputation for acting strictly within the law.

Author Details
Michael Shrimpton is a barrister, currently suspended of course, called to the Bar in London in 1983. He is a specialist in National Security and Constitutional Law, Strategic Intelligence and Counterterrorism. He has wide ranging connections both in Western Intelligence agencies and amongst ex-Soviet Bloc agencies. The late Generaloberst Markus Wolf, of the Stasi and DVD, was one of his contacts. Michael has earned respect in the intelligence community for his analysis of previously unacknowledged post-WWII covert operations against the West by the German DVD organization based in Dachau, near Munich, Germany, and its British, French and American client agencies. These continue to the present day, as politicians and the media are too nervous of standing up to them.

Michael was formerly an Adjunct Professor of Intelligence Studies in the Department of National Security, Intelligence and Space Studies at the American Military University, teaching intelligence subjects at Masters level to inter alia serving intelligence officers. He has represented US and Israeli intelligence officers in law and briefed in staffers on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9-11. In the wake of that murderous attack he addressed panels on terrorism in Washington DC and Los Angeles organized by the respected Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs. Fellow panelists included a former head of Special Operations Command and a former Commander of the US Atlantic Fleet.

Michael’s active assistance to Intelligence and Law Enforcement agencies in the Global War on Terror produced some notable successes, including the exposure of the Abu Ghraib ‘hood’ photograph as a fake. His work on strategic intelligence took him to the Pentagon and he has also met with senior advisors to the President of the Russian Federation, in Moscow, in November 2005. He participated in the Global Strategic Review conference in Geneva in 2005 and was a speaker at both the Intelligence Conference (Intelcon) in 2005, and the Intelligence Summit in 2006, each at Crystal City.

In 2006 he was flown out to, and flew off from, the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN-65), as part of the US Navy’s Distinguished Visitor Program. She was then working up her air group off the Eastern Seaboard of the United States, before operational deployment to the Persian Gulf. It is comparatively unusual for a foreign civilian to complete a carrier landing and launch cycle.

Michael’s ground-breaking, 700 page intelligence text “Spyhunter: The Secret History of German Intelligence” was published in England by June Press in April 2014. It features on a number of intelligence syllabuses, as does intelligence analysis prepared by Michael, e.g. on the brutal 2003 assassination of British weapons scientist Dr David Kelly CMG.

In their unlawful raid on Michael’s home in Wendover, Buckinghamshire in April 2012 Thames Valley Police officers seized the manuscript of Spyhunter and all of Michael’s onshore backups. Publication was only possible because the draft had been backed up offshore. The police hung onto the seized copies long after it was decided not to use them as evidence.

In November 2014 Michael was convicted at Southwark Crown Court by a tampered-with jury panel on two bogus bomb-hoax charges. Prior to bringing in the police the British Ministry of Defence, after consulting with the Cabinet Office, destroyed their recordings of Michael’s initial contact and qualified intelligence briefing re a DVD operation to target the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 Olympics using a stolen Russian SS-N-19 warhead.

Happily the NSA intercepted both Michael’s call to MOD and their call to him (on a number he had provided) and the intercepts are now in the hands of MI5.

As Michael’s distinguished Veterans Today colleagues Gordon Duff and Ben Fulford have confirmed on this website, his intelligence briefing to MOD was substantially correct and two warheads, both off an SS-19, were recovered by the US. After inspection the Department of Energy estimated their yield at 20KT.
