STRATFOR: Tinfoil Highlights

A private intelligence agency, Strategic Forecasting Inc. or STRATFOR, is based in Austin, Texas.

From Dazzlepod page:

On December 25, 2011, the Anonymous group hacked into a private intelligence agency, Strategic Forecasting Inc. or STRATFOR, based in Austin, Texas. The attack began with the release of STRATFOR's client list announced at!/AnonymousIRC/status/150679351589998593 followed by release of accounts in batches believed to belong to STRATFOR's customers. The release announced in another Twitter post at!/AnonymousIRC/status/150985258999885824 includes emails, passwords (hashed with MD5), home/office addresses and credit card information (full 16-digit number, expiry date and CVV number). The table below is the list of the leaked accounts with the passwords removed.

STRATFOR has brought down their site following the attack but kept their members posted on the status of the attack via their Facebook page.

In the weeks since the hack, conspiracytards have wasted no time injecting as much tinfoil as possible into these events, culminating in the "exposure" of pappa conspiracy himself, Alex Jones as a STRATFOR cointelpro agent at a website laughingly calling itself "truther" news:

Is Alex Jones A STRATFOR Double Agent?

February 12, 2012

Now that Alex Jones has been exposed as a potential STRATFOR intelligence operative, his upcoming speaking tour may provide security challenges for the Shin Bet security team that is likely responsible for keeping him safe.

Alex Jones of and has long been accused of being many things; namely: a CIA agent, a Mossad agent, or a Jesuit priest. While his true identity and political allegiance has been secret for many years, his time as the defunct leader of the 9/11 Truth movement is about to come to an end.

Based on the following evidence, Alex Jones is likely a STRATFOR (Strategic Forecasting, Inc.) double intelligence agent. This conclusion is based on the following data and research which should leave little doubt that Alex Jones has been built up over the last decade to prematurely ejaculate the 2nd American Revolution, disrupt genuine political movements, and gather intelligence on American citizens.

Repetitive repeating the assertion there is "evidence" and "data" supporting this conclusion in the article sadly doesn't make it so. Nonetheless Lori Price's Citizen's for Illegitimate Government wasted no time running with a followup of the story:

Alex Jones Cancels Speaking Tour 3 Days After Exposure As Possible STRATFOR Double Agent - Report
March 2, 2012 by legitgov

Alex Jones Cancels Speaking Tour 3 Days After Exposure As Possible STRATFOR Double Agent - Report 28 Feb 2012 Alex Jones cancels American speaking tour after revelations that he may be working for Israeli intelligence agency STRATFOR. On February 12, 2012, David Chase Taylor of broke the story that Alex Jones was likely an intelligence tool for STRATFOR, a private intelligence agency located in Austin, Texas. As detailed in the original article, STRATFOR admits to being an intelligence gathering center and therefore it stands to reason that Alex Jones and his affiliates of Inforwars and Prison Planet have likely been gathering intelligence, data and info on patriotic Americans since 1996, coincidently the exact same year that STRATFOR was founded.
The tinfoil quotient has been ratcheted up 200%, STRATFOR now called an Israeli intelligence agency, instead of a boring private US corporate intelligence agency picking up the CIA's work. That should be enough to titillate interest, in and out of conspiracy communities, but facts don't matter unless there's Jews involved, a racist political twist of Rule 34 and 35:
"If a conspiracy exists, there will be Jews of it; if there are no Jews of it, it will be made to be so."

STRATFOR is NOT run by "the Jews"

STRATFOR is NOT COINTELPRO. That was an FBI program; STRATFOR is picked up the CIA's work after "the company" footbulleted itself in 2004:

FW: CIA head of analysis fired

I wanted to forward these comments from George to the entire team so that
everyone at Stratfor is aware of the incredible opportunity/challenge we are
faced with.

Subject: CIA head of analysis fired

Jamie Miscik, Deputy Director of Intelligence at the CIA was fired today. As

DDI, she ran the analytic shop. According to media reports, she was fired
for squandering resources on day to day reports while ignoring the broad
trends. In other words, she was fired for looking at the trees and being
unable to see the forest. She was also accused of spending too much time
updating policy makers and too little time trying to grasp the broad
trends--giving customers what they wanted instead of what they needed. In
the end, it was her customers that turned on her.
My charge against her was and remains that she took no pride in her craft
and turned intelligence into PR and shoddy process. She and her gang are now

This gives Stratfor an enormous, historic opportunity. The CIA model of

analysis has been invalidated. The ponderous, process driven machine that
could only manage the small things now needs to be replaced by a robust,
visionary, courageous analytic system. Stratfor has the opportunity to show
the way. In fact, we are showing the way. Everyone in Langley knows that we
do things they have never been able to do with a small fraction of their
resources. They have always asked how we did it. We can now show them and
maybe they can learn.

Our annual and decade forecast will, I guarantee you, be read by everyone at

the CIA. They are looking for new models and they are looking at us. Every
ounce of excellence that Stratfor owns will go into those two pieces. This
will not only be good business, it will serve our country. They will be a
road map to the craft of intelligence.

Allan Dulles said that intelligence was a craft. It is not a mass production

line. The architects of misbegotten process in intelligence have failed and
are out. It is our chance to step to the plate. It's a rare moment and I
want everyone in intelligence to take a break from working to think, dream
and imagine. This is our chance to do it right.

It is Stratfor's chance to make intelligence history and build a major

business at the same time. It is a moment I have been waiting for--and knew
was coming--since 1996, when George Tenet was appointed DCI and Stratfor was founded. I, for one, am going to show them how it's done. I invite each of
you to join me. This, ladies and gentlemen, is it.

Cue inspirational music from All The Kings Men.

The tinfoil websites are muddling what STRATFOR is...a US based corporation in the business of intelligence, that just happens to have a buttload of butt hurt conspiracy subscribers crying COINTELPRO as if they have something to hide? And Alex Jones has been selected to take the fall? Evdokas, Waldron , Thomson and Ikink are "subscribers"...that involves money, but not the way people think....

STRATFOR's idea of a subscriber isn't what people assume; from their contract:

2.4 Purpose. The purpose of the Company (the Company Purpose”) shall be to engage in, or serve as a holding company of subsidiaries that engage in, (a) the business of gathering and analyzing global intelligence information regarding political, economic and military events and developments, publishing some or all of such intelligence analysis, disseminating some or all of such published material to subscribers (the “Publishing Business”) and using such information and analysis to create customized intelligence solutions for particular clients (the “CIS Business”), (b) the business of providing global intelligence information and analysis and related services to entities that engage in the capital management business (the “Stratcap Support Business”), (c) any lawful business under the Act and (d) any activity or business incidental to the foregoing.


(d) In connection with the issuance and sale of Units subscribed for by the Members pursuant to the preemptive rights provisions of this Section 4.3, the Board may, in its reasonable discretion, impose such other reasonable and customary terms and procedures such as setting a closing date, rounding the number of the Units to be issued to any subscriber to the nearest whole number, requiring customary closing deliveries such as accredited investor certificates and representations of due authority. If any Eligible Purchaser refuses to purchase Offered Units for which it subscribes pursuant to this Section 4.3, in addition to any other rights the Company may be permitted to enforce at law or in equity, such Member and any Permitted Transferee thereof shall not be considered an Eligible Purchaser for any future rights granted under Section 4.3(a) unless the Board expressly designates such Person as an Eligible Purchaser (which the Board, in its sole discretion, may do on an offer-by-offer basis or not at all).


(e) The Members acknowledge that, under certain circumstances, the Company may require capital on an accelerated basis such that the full preemptive right process described above cannot be completed in a timely manner. In such case, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 4.3, the Company may work with some, rather than all, of the Eligible Purchasers to raise the required funds in the required timeframe so long as, within 60 days after the completion of the offering, the Company makes the same investment opportunity available to all Eligible Purchasers that were not offered the opportunity in connection with the closing of the initial offering. The Company may elect to make such same investment opportunity available to such other Eligible Purchasers either by requiring the initial subscribers to sell down a portion of their investment, by issuing additional Offered Units or a combination of the foregoing or by taking any other action which effectively provides such other Eligible Purchasers with the same investment opportunity to the same extent as would have been required under Sections 4.3(a) through 4.3(d). If the Company elects to fulfill its obligation under the preceding sentence by issuing additional Offered Units to those Eligible Purchasers that were not given the opportunity to participate in the initial offering, the Offered Units issued by the Company shall constitute “Exempt Units” so as not to trigger preemptive rights with respect to the issuance thereof so long as the issuance is in satisfaction of the obligations under this Section4.3(e).

This is a strange use of subscibers; sounds more like investors. It gets more muddled here :


(b) During the Restriction Period, the Restricted Party will not directly or
indirectly, whether on the Restricted Party's own behalf or in association, directly or indirectly, as an employee, officer, director, manager, agent, partner, stockholder, owner, member, representative, consultant or in any other capacity with any other Person, solicit any customer, client or subscriber of the Company for the purpose of procuring an order for goods or providing any services that are reasonably likely to compete with the Subject Business.

And in the AMENDMENT TO CONTRIBUTION AND SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT , where is sounds like a subscriber and contributor are the same thing:


(this "Amendment") is made and entered into as of August 1, 2011 (the "Amendment Execution Date"), by and among Stratfor Enterprises, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the "Company"), SM/Stratfor Partners, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the "Investor"), and Strategic Forecasting, Inc. (the "Contributor"). Each of the foregoing is referred to herein as a "Party" and collectively as the "Parties."

The agreement is singular, not contributor and subscription agreements, plural; in other words it's implied being a subscriber is the same as being a contributor.

Complete agreement will be mirrored HERE as soon as someone converts STRATFOR's read only pdf faggotry. This part will wake up lurkers:

(c) "Excluded Cash" means $300,000. The Contributor shall be entitled to
retain $300,000 in cash in order to satisfy 2011 and 2012 Texas Franchise Taxes, 2011 Federal corporate income tax, state sales and use taxes, and other miscellaneous obligations and liabilities of the Contributor as of August 1, 2011, provided, however, that no later than December 31, 2012, the Contributor will provide the Company with a full accounting of how the Excluded Cash has been used and will contribute any unused cash to the Company at that time.

Ironic Twist

Irony being ironic, someone connected to Alex Jones Infowars website is a STRATFOR subscriber/contributor:

ID Email / Username Password
794631 ***
Only a handful of the tinfoil sites picked up on this; from Youtube comments:


There is an Infowars e-mail address in the leaked list of the STRATFOR client database. You can search the list and see for yourself. So somebody at Infowars is a subscriber of STRATFOR. It may even be Alex Jones himself. The e-mail address is:

Whois search shows a valid domain for an Alex Jones vehicle, care of wifey Kelly Nichols(a "Zionist Agent" if your read the Tinfoil):

Alex Jones is a professional conspiracy attention whore and con artist, with money making vehicles as far as the Interwebs can see. He has the means to forgo the motive of being an "intelligence agent". But with his history of promoting militia groups and right wing violence, it makes sense a real agency might keep tabs on his website and networks; STRATFOR could have been part of that. Maybe STRATFOR occasionally serving the public good when they're not intelligence whores for corporate and political opportunists.

Sorry, no Jews in this tinfoil lite.

Whatever occasional good deeds STRATFOR has done, their "subscribers" connected to the conspiracy group in Portland Oregon, are informants or liars to the man(so far no girl groupies are least not with known emails).

Last note on Alex Jones: Webster Tarpley, the group's favorite Larouchie, is Jones' buddy:
