We’re talking about what we can do to build Nova Earth, and I’m focusing on some communicational needs.
Yesterday I posted a memorable set of allegations from Judicial Watch. (1)
Today I’d like to draw attention to the depth of commentary that’s being posted in some discussion groups and chat rooms around the Net. I post one remarkable example.
I don’t think we would have seen this detailed, informed but neutral an analysis decades ago – for many reasons.
I’d like to think that articles like Tidewater’s expand the discussion – in context, more importantly than in content – and indicate an advancement in the baseline of human discussion.
Different clue, July 2, 2016
I will try cut/pasting Tidewater’s comment [on the Clinton/Lynch meeting in Phoenix] right here.
Tidewater to All,
I studied the television footage that KNXV-TV ABC15 Phoenix used with morning anchor Christopher Sign’s report. ( “US Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Bill Clinton meet privately in Phoenix before Benghazi report.”) (“Quite the Meeting on the Tarmac.”)
I didn’t expect to find much of anything. But a couple of interesting things were revealed. I think the “trusted source” of Christopher Sign was from the police. It needs to be noted that the AG’s plane landed in a private area of the Sky Harbor where there could be very few people around except, you would assume, those waiting to board another private plane in the same area. These would be the people who were told “no photo, no pictures, no cell phones,” by the FBI. I studied the last part of the video which showed a group of people standing under an aluminum pavilion. In the background it seemed that there was a rise in the ground, and it was very barren. I assume that some of the effect was an illusion caused by the camera lense foreshortening the background. Nevertheless, you wouldn’t expect people in that direction.
I was looking for some very rich people who were being inconvenienced by the contretemps. There were about fifteen people under the aluminum pavilion. Almost immediately I realized they were surely all police. They were the welcoming committee from the Phoenix police department, given, I assume, the privilege of meeting the AG’s plane. Four or five of them were also security.
If you look in the center of the group, you see a tall black woman holding a water bottle, in a polka dot dress with white beads. I think she was going to be a principal greeter. To her right is a bearded guy who might be public relations. On the far right is probably a detective wearing a cowboy hat and a suit, looking like a western lawman. (At one point he grips his lapels between thumb and finger. He seems like he is laid back about the whole thing.) They are all alert. They seem relaxed, too. The wait is OK. They are a disciplined force. There are a number of sturdy black guys with close haircuts in black suits. They are looking in all directions. One is checking a phone and then turns to observe the background, back to camera and stays that way. There is a very big cop on the left front on the tarmac with a pistol worn high that seems to have a blue handle. He seems too ugly and scary to be F.B.I. There are quite a few cell phones in the group, without counting, I think at least five, and most of them are either being looked at or being used. There are a number of uniformed policemen on the right front. One puts on his sunglasses.
So what is this all about? This is the welcoming committee for the Attorney General of the United States, who is the principal speaker at the “President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing,” which has been going on for months. Loretta Lynch has been flying out to different cities all over the US for these pow wows. These occasions surely run like clockwork. And here, what has happened? They have been waiting a while and it will mean the carefully planned schedule is set back how long–nobody knows. As it turns out, it will be some thirty minutes before anyone can do anything at all. Perhaps the phones in use are sending a warning that a grand luncheon should be set back, “but for how long,you think?” “Well, at least forty minutes…” “What!”
Who is to say that one of these cops is not on the phone with Christopher Sign?
What I suspect is that the FBI protecting both Clinton and Lynch must have had a little problem. It would have been part of the occasion of the President’s Task Force that a video record be made of it, long pre-planned. It is all about public relations after all, isn’t it? But the FBI doesn’t want footage made of the security cordon out on the tarmac. Probably some men with heavy golf bags etc. out there. No pictures of the planes today, either. There is no need to know what Clinton’s plane looks like these days. (Whatever it is; however he got it.) This would be absolutely routine, no pix of a large yacht, either, I would think. These are the new rules. So the FBI went over to the local cops and said something like, we don’t need a lot of video of these planes out there or how we do things, and you know that. We are all in law enforcement. So give us a break…
But as to stopping them from using their cell phones, not a chance. It is quite clear about that. Cell phones are being used. The FBI may have tried, but it was a little too late. Maybe they relented on the communications since they themselves didn’t know know how long this was going to take. Maybe they managed to discourage the videos and still photographs. I’m sure that that Phoenix police group would have cooperated.
Since some video footage of the task force work is needed, the video camera is allowed to start running when she comes down off the plane. And then from the tarmac, we get a look back at the all-cop welcoming committee. It is all very quick. My suspicion is that there weren’t any other private planes in the area, just the two, Lynch’s and Clinton’s.
The police know a story maybe better than anyone, and newspapers and television always work closely with them. A cop’s daughter gets married, she will get a very good newspaper article and photo. There is a lot of perfectly reasonable quid pro quo. I think some of the police, perhaps high ranking ones, would have had felt that it was odd and inappropriate not that Clinton was talking with the AG, but that he was throwing a spanner in a highly organized, long planned, all city and federal task force/conference. This thing was a big deal for them and it deserved better. So it seemed to someone like it was worth a story. Also, cops have suspicious minds, and the whole thing didn’t seem right.
But planned between the AG and Clinton? I think he did her a disservice.
