A man is known by the company he keeps.
As a child Roger Stone was already interested in politics, manipulation and lobbying; in the first grade he recalls;
“I remember going through the cafeteria line and telling every kid that Nixon was in favour of school on Saturdays…It was my first political trick”.
He was heavily involved in school politics, until starting to work with Barry Goldwater at age 12 as a volunteer.
Next working with Nixon, he learned a lot of dirty tricks, planting spies in the opposition, dividing and conquering both enemies and allies to further your personal gains…
For Nixon he said he was officially a scheduler for the campaign by day, though in an almost prophetic quote he said:
“By night, I’m trafficking in the black arts. Nixon’s people were obsessed with intelligence.”
Roy Cohn, Roger Stone and Donald Trump began a friendship and started working together on common goals, and they shared many traits. Learning off each other, they became worse people.
Michael D’Antonio “Cohn modelled a style for Trump that was one part friendly gossip and one part menace”
Roger Stone has a strange habit of committing crimes or misconduct, lying about it while it is still prosecutable, then confessing to it later on. Not sure what his motivation is, maybe to clear his own conscience. After the statute of limitations for the crime of Bribery had expired, he admitted that his friend and colleague Roy Cohn had given him a suspicious suitcase, to be delivered to an office which would lead to Reagan winning the state of New York. Bizarrely, he has worked for Bob Dole twice, first being fired in the 70’s as he could not be trusted with his extreme connections to Richard Nixon, and in the 1996 Dole Presidential Campaign he resigned when many pictures and ads were placed in Swingers magazines. Initially denying this and blaming an employee, he admitted in 2008 that this was in fact himself.
Donald Trump may often claim that “Hillary Clinton started ISIS”, yet his campaign advisor Roger Stone, via BKSH & Associates manipulated the U.N. and Coalition of armed forces into carrying out the invasion and destabilisation of Iraq with false intelligence.
This lead to the creation of “Jama’at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad” in 2003 who then changed their name to “The Islamic State of Iraq” in 2006. Later shortening to Islamic State as their power grew outside Iraq.
In the past, BMSK, and later BKSH & Associates has lobbied and assisted such lovely human beings as Ferdinand Marcos, Mobutu Sese Seko, Mohamed Siad Barre and Jonas Savimbi.
A lot of innocent people have died as a result of their work, a multitude of wars, coups and human rights abuses mainly in Africa have occurred, though if you’re a dictator with enough cash they will work anywhere.
His work was so reviled by many, they coined a vulgar term for Roger and people that work in political sabotage and trickery, which I will not repeat here, but Ted Cruz cryptically mentioned during the 2016 Republican Presidential Primaries, he said that candidate;
“Trump may be a rat, but I have no desire to copulate with him”
Stone officially quit the Trump campaign in August yet remains a “confidante”. He is regularly appearing on Alex Jones’ insane YouTube channel, and probably up to his old “political tricks” that he has been playing since age 6.
It is interesting to note; in 2012 Stone predicted an end to the Republican party in 2016, and ran a super Pac for the Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson. He mentioned in an interview with the Huffington Post that “he had a real role to play” and that
“This is a warm-up race,” “I have no allusions of him winning.”
