Donald Trump, State Sponsored Terrorists, And “Shell Game.”

By Jerry Alatalo

“The essence of lying is in deception, not in words; a lie may be told in silence, by the accent on a syllable, by a glance of the eye attaching a peculiar significance to a sentence; but all of these kinds of lies are worse and baser by many degrees than a lie plainly worded.”

– JOHN RUSKIN (1819-1900) British writer

olitical analyst and former U.S. Army psychological warfare officer Scott Bennett has since 2012-2013 been relentlessly trying to bring appropriate action in the U.S. government on explosive information about terrorist financing presented in his book “Shell Game”. Mr. Bennett wrote the book after meeting Swiss bank whistleblower Brad Birkenfeld in prison where both men served sentences for crimes neither committed, and where Brad Birkenfeld shared a massive amount of information directly related to Saudi bank accounts used for financing ISIS, Al Qaeda and similar terrorist groups, obtained while Birkenfeld was an executive at UBS Bank in Switzerland.

After leaving prison, Bennett wrote “Shell Game” detailing the scandalous facts Birkenfeld shared with him, then sent reports to virtually every member (Republican and Democrat) of the U.S. Congress, top military officials and numerous major media outlets in America. That was in the 2012-2013 time period during the presidency of Barack Obama, and his efforts came to naught – not one elected U.S. official, military commander or media outlet took action to investigate, speak out, or report on the enormous scandal.

Press TV of Iran and RT (Russia) have had Scott Bennett on their political talk programs many times in recent years, yet he has never been seen and heard describing the profound scandal he discovered then wrote about on any Western corporate media outlet. In contrast, Mr. Bennett’s massive story has become known by millions of men and women who have decided to leave mainstream media, choosing instead to get their news from alternative or independent sources, namely the internet.

During an appearance on PressTV’s talk program “The Debate” with fellow guest, columnist, political scientist and radio host Wilmer Leon recently, Bennett noted that he has shared his book and story with the Donald Trump administration, and that he has high expectations the scandal will finally become revealed after years of effective and total coverup. Those years up until today have shown unanimous American high-level leaders’ disregard and ignoring of the stupendous world-consequence facts involved.

Scott Bennett has in the past described the information contained in his book “Shell Game” as of greater consequence than the Watergate and Iran-Contra scandals combined.

We wrote the following comments after watching the remarkable discussion:

“It would be a very good idea to invite these two gentlemen back for another conversation, focused on the much deeper and more important topic of “state-sponsored terrorism” – because in this discussion Mr. Leon was focused on wiretapping of Trump and Mr. Bennett was focused on terrorist financing using major international banks like UBS in Switzerland”.

“If Mr. Bennett and Mr. Leon were to sit down for an hours-long conversation it is highly likely they would come to a profound agreement and understanding of what is reported in the book “Shell Game”, which, it is essential to note, was sent in 2012-2013 to virtually every member of the House of Representatives and Senate of the United States – and where NOT ONE elected official responded by initiating appropriate investigations”.

“In defense of Mr. Leon, he is unaware of the truly explosive information Mr. Bennett put in his book and has for years been trying to bring to the attention of government officials, American citizens, and/or anyone who could help bring the absolutely disturbing truth out in the open. Mr. Leon asked the correct and reasonable question when he suggested Republicans took no action on the terrorist financing scandal against the Obama administration between 2008 and 2016, and the answer is that BOTH Republican and Democrat elected officials ignored Mr. Bennett’s efforts to reveal the evidence of major terrorist financing crimes”.

“The essential question now becomes: Will President Donald Trump act on Mr. Bennett’s years-long efforts to bring the horrendous truth, or will President Donald Trump maintain the enormous and continuing BIPARTISAN coverup of the 21st century?”

  1. Interesting Jerry. I picked up on (Dr) Bennett’s epic disclosure a few years back, so this post is a welcome and refreshing update and reminder.

    The strategic deployment of psychological confusion that prevails today, buttressed substantially by glamorous Hollywood ‘smoke-screen’ intel psyops, so far as I can determine, is designed to keep the public overwhelmed and distracted with contradictory, often incomprehensively intricate, pixelated gew-gaw narratives ~ a great game of false promises, treacherous trails and lethal engagements on multiple levels of sentience. It is a virtual fog almost impossible to navigate.

    Lubricating this massive and devastatingly combustible matryoshka fractal of ‘liquid’ petro-financial assets is self-perpetuating ~ as the profane medium is the arcane message (quoth McLuhan;) so we should not be surprised that the entire corrupt and profitable, ecocidal enterprise is supported by ‘occult’ transactions at the highest level through international banking and commerce. The whole unsavory business being underwritten by ostentatiously ‘noble’ quasi-masonic orders of at best, dubious authenticity and ~ almost without exception ~ spurious authority.

    The most profitable game in town being mega-weaponized deception on all levels therefore, this has deeply infiltrated academic publishing and corrupted institutionalized education profoundly, especially in the overlapping disciplines of science, history, medicine and anthropological intelligence. So it ought to be simple enough to determine who the most privileged ‘villains’ are, just by calibrating ‘their’ global wealth indices.

    In a capital-intoxicated world of course, vast personal wealth is still ample justification, to brag and boast and strut one’s ‘economic’ success. (S)Trumpeting pecunious vanity has ostentatiously (rather than ‘discreetly’) now infested the Oval Office. However, so far as real ownership is concerned, see (for example):

    Of course, today we also dwell in a world of virtual possession, largely determined by digitized information flows rather than ‘estates,’ elite security, priceless libraries and rare museum/art collections. The post-modern dodge has been the exponential fashioning of a ‘virtual’ pyramid so encompassing, it frankly escapes our notice, because it is the actual structure of mechanized consciousness itself.

    No great mystery about all this however, as it is entirely shaped by electrical energy, fiendishly complicated algorithms and governed by (allegedly) commensurate physical laws ~ at least, theoretically.

    As I see it, the nuanced potential, but actual, criminal implications, arise across this strange liminal interface of epic hallucinatory glamour and a heavily contested occult/esoteric/metaphysical domain. So what we are witnessing today seems to be a highly complex, nested, emergent holarchy ~ comprising ceremonial architectures and symbolic protocols, competing for ‘spiritual’ ascendancy through the material media of commerce.

    This is compounded, decorated and complicated by elaborate inherited ‘family’ compacts, empowered and sanctioned by ‘honorary’ & endowed pseudo-initiatic attainments, bestowing assumed rank and preposterous status.

    The most salient historical example perhaps, at present, being the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of Saint John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta [……Supremus Ordo Militaris Hospitalis Sancti Ioannis Hierosolymitani Rhodius et Melitensis……] known as the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM.)

    Chivalric values evidently, are now merely the played-out fabrications of White Helmeted fictions, rendered immortal by the specious accolade of a well directed ‘Academy Award.’


    1. David,
      Thank you for such a considered commentary with much to ponder. The New Statesman article was appreciated for its revelations about massive landowners in the world, especially the British royal family and Queen Elizabeth, and helped in answering a question asked here years ago: “Why do tax havens still exist?” If Queen Elizabeth wants tax havens – many under her land jurisdiction – to continue existing, then they will continue. That explains the term “royal scam” very well, and the non-action by those in governments who could do something to end tax havens if they had the moral strength. The “played-out fabrications of White Helmeted fictions” may be about to come crashing down after the organization Swedish Professors and Doctors for Human Rights exposed the whole criminal lot. Thanks, again. Peace.


      1. Yes Kevin Cahill’s work is very helpful.

        Delighted to see the Swedish info you just posted. The scale of deceit is grotesque; I think Sun Zi would be gratified ~ but puzzled and surprised at the literal naivete of his adherents.

        Perhaps the point to ponder is that deception may achieve its purpose immediately, only the ‘benefit’ or advantage is short-term so cannot be overplayed; once bitten twice shy! Then we arrive at that treacherous place when everything and everyone is suspect, so trust becomes impossible.

        The purported gains of such cunning are therefore dubious. Laozi is a better guide to strategic ethics & moral conduct in my estimation; but transliterating the Dao De JIng is exceptionally challenging. I suspect very few have the spiritual insight to interpret it with genuine confidence.


        1. Hello David (Foster – a 1st, two Davids same comment thread!),
          It’ll be interesting and telling if the Swedish doctors’ exposing of the White Helmets’ crimes gets reported by any corporate media outlet, or if any well-known politician (say.. Donald Trump.. Hillary Clinton.. Bernie Sanders?), celebrity or professional athlete steps forward and acts. The false flag of 9/11 has been covered up for over 15 years, so one shouldn’t become surprised the White Helmets scandal too gets “buried”. Keeping the faith, though.. Thanks, David.


          1. Actually, both are me….sorry, thought you’d realized….I’ve been having problems logging in with my fb account so tried to use wordpress but it remembers me as davidlfos ~ apologies for the confusion Jerry, same problem over at DS; I can’t quite figure out what is going on….either I’m a complete Luddite or it’s ‘interference’ for triggering some taboo.


            1. Here I was trying to find the man “David L. Fos” on searches… Humor is appreciated now and then, though, with all these heavy events and situations, so one takes it where one can find it.. Too funny. 🙂


    1. Bennett said he was being transferred to a prison out west, was in the middle of America, but the van turned around and he ended up in a Pennsylvania prison where “coincidentally” Brad Birkenfeld was serving his sentence. Got a hunch whoever was behind the decision to send Bennett to the same prison as Birkenfeld did it so they would meet, and they did, hence the book and expose.
