History

Strategic Forecasting, Inc. (known as Stratfor) is an American publisher and global intelligence company founded in 1996 in Austin, Texas, by George Friedman. Dave Sikora is president and chief executive officer. Stratfor not only provides information to the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), but has also been directly used in Presidential briefings.[1] They also have intimate knowledge of classified FBI operations.[2][3] They are a private company with high-level security clearances and access to the U.S. government.

Persons of Interest

See also Personnel and relevant emails by hierarchy

Aaric S. Eisenstein is the senior vice president of publishing.

David McCullar and Mike McCullar are also noted persons of interest as they have sent numerous suspicious emails between each other. Mike is the Senior Editor of Special Projects at Stratfor. David admittedly has several mental problems including depression and schizophrenia, but he retained his employment in Stratfor despite sending out many alarming (or possibly coded) messages.

Bayless Parsley has also been accused by fellow employee Ben West of purchasing child pornography.

Role in #Pizzagate

In addition to the many infamous emails that have associated Stratfor with #Pizzagate, there are also countless activities which have made them the subject of #Pizzagate investigations.

Use of pizza as a code word

International "PIZZA" delivery website

There is evidence to suggest that Stratfor, an intelligence consulting firm, operated website at their Stratfor domain to conduct what was called the "PIZZA" test. The website itself is an order form where users can pay for and order "PIZZA".[4] Despite being claimed as a beta website, researchers have found a list of Stratfor transactions that appear to be related to this site.[5] Yet another email contains a "PIZZA report" that refers to this exact site and its activities stating that it was used to take thousands of dollars in credit card payments.[6] This report seems to indicate the "PIZZA test" was related to a testing of online subscription payments to Stratfor, but the site is still active since 2011 and receives payments despite no clear indication it is for a Stratfor subscription. Regardless of what's actually being sold on this site, this is an obvious use of the word "pizza" as a code word.

Further investigation is going into finding archived versions of the site itself to present as further evidence, as these did exist at one point.

"Pizza party" as a code word

Here is Stratfor founder and CEO George Friedman who is very concerned about the inaccessibility of the aforementioned "PIZZA project" and his lack of knowledge on what "Pizza Party" truly meant.[7]

Connections to child pornography

Stratfor employees exchanging an email on a child pornography sting ask if their colleague, analyst Bayless Parsley[8] is on the list.[9]

Knowledge that Osama bin Laden's body was not buried at sea

See Reddit thread on the subject as well as emails pertaining to Fred Burton, George Friedman and Debunked rumors.

Subversive activities in Georgia

Role in Georgia rail bombing

Thus far the rail blast looks to have been my people [LG:Abkhaz], though
they must have been punk hooligans since they couldn't do it right and
nothing was really hurt or disrupted. Rail is back up and running
unfortunately. What a downer. Embarrassing too.

Connection to 9/11

An email sent to one of Stratfor's general contact forms is a personal testimony of anomalies found in metal dynamics during 9/11.[10] Evidence found in the submitting user's social media indicates he has been missing since 2012, one year after this email.

Stratfor was also subsequently hacked after 9/11 by Jeremy Hammond under the direction of infamous FBI informant Sabu.[11]

More info can be found on Reddit by a post from user @GlobalHell: https://www.reddit.com/r/conspiracy/comments/5cvgas/911_wikileaks_am_i_the_only_one_thats_read_this/

Connection to TrapWire and illegal mass surveillance

https://www.reddit.com/r/conspiracy/comments/2icu5q/stratfor_emails_reveal_secret_widespread_trapwire/

Connection to CIA (Central Intelligence Agency)

The CIA has to spend thousands of dollars a month to have an agent in, say, Teheran or Peshawar to monitor local newspapers or political developments that we can find on the Internet within a few hours," Friedman claims to a visitor at Stratfor's downtown Austin offices.

(From The Shadow CIA, quote by George Friedman)

They are also documented as having an intimate relationship over the murder and subsequent coverup of the details on Osama bin Laden's death.[12]

Connection to Deagel

Deagel is largely an American contractor with ties into the U.S. Navy, the NSA and the CIA through Stratfor.

A partial list of known Deagel Partners

  • National Security Agency
  • North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO – OTAN)
  • Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)
  • OSCE
  • Russian Defense Procurement Agency
  • Stratfor
  • The World Bank
  • United Nations (UN)

In the beginning of 2014, Deagel published on their website a now infamous projection on demographic shifts of every nation on the planet. As an Agenda 21 author puts it, "As one of the most prolific arms dealers and sellers of intelligence information on the planet, Deagel would be in a unique position from which to make projections with regard to coming world events as well as being able to anticipate dramatic shifts in global power." Below is a list of projected changes for the United States during the time frame covering 2014-2025.[13]

United States of America Projected Changes from 2014-2025

Year:  2013
Population:  316 million

Gross Domestic Product: $17 trillion

GDP per capita: $52,838

Budget: $5.8 trillion

Military Budget: $726 billion

Forecast 2025
Population: 69 million

Gross Domestic Product: $921 billion

GDP per capita: $13,328

Military Budget:  $8.0 billion

Taken from Agenda 21:

In 2013, the U.S. military budget was $726 billion dollars. However, the projected 2025 projected budget is only $8 billion dollars.  This clearly points to the fact that the CIA, through Deagel, are projecting that the United States is going to be militarily conquered within the next 10 years. The mere $8 billion dollar projected 2025 military budget speaks to a domestic martial law type of occupation force. With this kind of budget, the U.S. would not even be able to engage in regional conflicts.

Despite repeated attempts to debunk the website, it is cited as reference in a Stratfor report on the technological capabilities of The People's Republic of North Korea.[14] Deagel thus provides information which is subsequently used by global intelligence communities and governments.

Connection to DynCorp

An email between Mia Burki of DynCorp and Solomon Foshko of Stratfor can be found requesting a subscription to Stratfor and "to renew on an annual, individual basis."[15]

Monitoring of Bhopal gas disaster activists

Stratfor monitored and analyzed the online activities of Bhopal activists, including the "Yes Men", for the US chemical giant Dow Chemical. The activists seek redress for the 1984 Dow Chemical/Union Carbide gas disaster in Bhopal, India. The disaster led to thousands of deaths, injuries in more than half a million people, and lasting environmental damage.[16]

Personnel and relevant emails by hierarchy

Certain individuals at Stratfor have been intensely scrutinized for a number of communications in which they were involved. Here is an organized list by hierarchy:

George Friedman, founder and CEO

Fred Burton, Vice President for Intelligence

Aaric S. Eisenstein, Senior Vice President of Publishing

Mike McCullar, Senior Editor of Special Projects

David McCullar, Mike's son

Bayless Parsley, Chief Geopolitical Analyst on Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya and accused of purchasing child pornography

Ben West, Global Security Analyst

Dan Burges, briefer for Fred Burton

Hell, thanks for this reproduction of Rosemary's Baby with my neighbor-DMichaelM


Nephew Mike,
Hell, thanks for projecting a reproduction of Rosemary's Baby with my
neighbor... NOT. I love you for shelter and food you have provided.
However, you and YOUR family (I AM NOT RELATED TO KAY) are complete
hypnotic strategists to dissuade mine and Senator Clinton's political
platform. You hypnotic strategists have sickened me. I drank two glasses
of an herbal milkshake. Had I put them in the microwave maybe I would be
on dimethyltryptamine like from big b'd. I know that when I take this
capsule its gonna bring me to my knees. So what made me vomit, unripened
frozen strawberries, or basil and/or mint seeds? Dinner at grandmas was a
Christmas affair show and tell. Is there such thing as a green speckled
milkshake, because my body rejected temazepam for the first time and it
tasted like banana mucus mango. This past 24 hour Christmas endurance is a
big problem, Mike. I'm guessing either you or Dean got my
girlfriend pregnant first, before I got manually masturbated by night
stalkers. So, NO MORE of that at my nosferatu Wulff mother's ranch THAT I
AM CLAIMING AS MY SANCTUARY from you. I should feel better in the morning,
if I can get some sleep. The problem is, I don't respect you very much for
prompting hypnotic distracting strategery, with your and Dan's goofy mum,
quite plain and simple. How I respect you is that you are tough, guy. I
don't want a fight. I need you to submit to me nonsexually. In fact, the
reason why I hate your whore wife is because ever since you have been with
her, even when I have been pacific and peaceful in you all's company, you
have held a grudge for the abuse you endured in my interpretation of my
mother's departure and those retribution overtures oughta be cut off at
the source. I am LIKE an orphan, KIND of, and for that I am asking for
sympathy from you, as you still have your mother's presence, and I am
"know, YO". Catch those codewords. I know who I am. I only am, but some
are too. I request love and affection, from you as my subordinant. I am
NOT offering apologies that you have given thanks for and rejected. I
require your submission, of this sort. Please excuse me for being so
bitter. I repeat, "ever since you have been with her, even when I have
been pacific and peaceful in you all's company, you have held a grudge for
the abuse you endured in my interpretation of my mother's departure and
those retribution overtures oughta be cut off at the source." That is our
problem.

im sorry that i ruined your birthday


I'm not doing anything with my family for my birthday. I might accept a
tshirt with your face on it that my sister is having made. I would love a
chance to talk to you, seeing as you are my top priority in life, and I
will be seeing my friends at my birthday party sponsored by the Onion on
June 30th, the night of the full moon when I turn 24, even though my
family wants me to believe that I don't have any friends. When my mom died
she didn't tell me to marry Brad Pitt. She told me that I was always her
favorite. I have no family now, and I hate my life. I have never been more
alone, and people love me but I am cold and emotionless in the backlash of
psychological abuse, behavioral therapy, neglect, and the loss of my
mother to cancer. The carbon copy of this will go to my dad who needs to
know that he has had a terrible influence on my life and that I don't love
him anymore.

basically everyone, your siblings, my mom's friends, bart,
enumerated and beyond are my sister's hand servants and, or friends.
she is so well received. I don't understand why except that she is a
snake charmer. I hope this isn't a mistake, but I need to get a few
things off of my chest. they would be happier if I committed suicide
because I would be giving in to their disappreciation of me, like
then they would understand what I am going through but not this
whole self-worth bit of mine where I rebuke convention to survive
inside MY central nervous system. its tough. I feel like everyone
has circled around my dad, he married an aerobics instructor, and
now my sister is their model of my mother which proves that they
didn't know her from Adam. emily katherine mcCullar is just like
Mike. they behave exactly the same. not only that but she
disrespects me. I don't like her, at all. my dad received a lot of
relief from whoever could help. they all worship my sister, that's
beside the point. what means the most to me, and not in terms of you
because most importantly you are reading this now... but I never
did, not from you, not from Pat Hale, and not from Scott Kidd who
was present at the hospital when my mom passed. the only reason I am
still alive is because my mother told me on her death bed that I am
her favorite but that seems so unfair that I feel deeply depraved in
her absence. I don't receive that kind of relief from anyone in her
absence, no one at all. there are people who I believe understand me
better than others... for example I think I am on Barbara's level
intellectually and kind of like her as a success story similar to
the ugly duckling... she's pro, as well as Sofia Coppola who I
believe I helped mark the receipt of her work by the public, is
schizo bipolar, and has been sweet to me because she has received my
approach to life similar to how I have received her work at least...
at variant levels of personability. those people are out of the
equation though. I tried reaching out to her niece because she's
cute, hip, and her dad died. it was in vain I fear... I think so
because she snubbed me when I told her in a few more words that I
would really like to get to know her. I don't understand why someone
with such a healthy concept of their self has to feel so VERY much
pain, and like I have been trying to come across more clearly now
that I am on Latuda and sober, and its not working... at all really.
I don't understand why someone like me with such a healthy concept
of their self has to feel so very much pain. I don't want to commit
suicide.

severe depression apology (not severe schizophrenia actually)


Patrick,
Hey, I heard you were missing Mr. McCullar and I. Dude I'm SO sorry
for flying off the handle at you enumeratedly. I just want you to know
that in the wake of my severe schizophrenia stabilization on FDA 2010
Latuda, this depression has bit my ass hard. Its obviously not your fault
but that doesn't mean that I don't owe you an extreme apology. Pat I know
you're a competitive guy and you've been really tough on lots of kids in
your youth but there is no way that you are still liable for ANYTHING you
said in 8th grade so I want you to know, we're not going to cover that
because I am going to say that automatically you're exempt for any
manifest tension we developed at St. Stephen's middle school, and I've
been even worse than doing that as a youth lately, so please forgive my
arrogance and aggression towards you circa one month to two months ago,
because I am VERY sorry. I would very much still like to be your friend
and I have asked my dad to show me red flags anytime he deems it necessary
that I understand he won't be selling my sister's ranch if I get slapped
with a harassment felony charge for purporting that crap on the internet
or even the phone. We're going to the ranch on Thanksgiving and Rusty
can't make it cause they'll be in Marfa/Big Bend but if you feel
comfortable joining Mike and I for a deer hunt after your Thanksgiving
family celebration contact Mike McCullar at mccullar@stratfor.com and he
will be following up with you with an email about my approaching you this
time with hesitation.

MW, This was in my inbox from yesteday. I am concerned.


Lloyd Wilson,
Hopefully you remember me as Scott Kidd's friend and a member of the Good
Shepherd church where you went to preschool if I remember correctly. I
fell asleep to a transgression of a pattern late this December and am
concerned that Brandon Chandler and Katie Holmes or my upstairs neighbor
got into my apartment that night and videotaped her giving me a handjob.
It is just very confusing because I know I have been talking in my sleep,
and this followed hearing voices outside of my window for about 3 weeks
from another neighbor in the building where I live across the street from
Lyndon B. Johnson's nephew (maybe Leif's dad?) following a concert that I
didn't go to because of what happened online after I talked to someone
about the other girl I know online who is mysterious in communicating her
identity. They all stalked to the lyric "I want a call, request through
heating vents" and I am honestly concerned that it was taken way too far.
It seems like harassment because I have quite a temper, and it has all
followed my testimony in court following Angelina Jolie's 32nd birthday.
That isn't what I testified for. I testified because I had reason to
believe that Branden Allen (not Brandon Allen Chandler) shot Lindsay
Luekenholdter. About the incident of falling asleep "with the lights on"
one of the things I remember saying was "put something on it". The reason
why I don't know who I saw is because all I remember seeing was the back
of their head. I have read that Angelina is pregnant with twins, so there
is reason to believe that her belly could have formed since then. I want
to make sure that if there is a baby of mine other than Angelina's
perhaps, that it won't be given birth to by my upstairs neighbor. I think
I saw Angelina last night, when my usual Friday night online acquaintance
wasn't available for once since I got my new computer. I don't want to get
this blown out of proportion, which is why I have written to you, since
our elders are involved in legalities like you and Mary Wommack if that's
right. Unfortunately I find myself very reactive when sublimations are
made like "I am walking my female dog while your grandmother is being
taken to the hospital by EMS" by the same woman neighbor, who also makes
noises like how my mother used to call her cats. The guy who wrote the
lyric "feasting on Ma Brett" would probably say "we cunt be heard" about
this. I really wish women didn't try to provoke conflict here after
Branden Allen left his ammo in my living room. It gives me bad vibes. The
neighbors I am making reference to are all here on Windsor Rd, and not at
Summit Court.

sincerely,
David McCullar

Re: I need to add


I am also afraid tomorrow will be a disaster as we have two sets of
directions. We had planned (as you initially requested) that this be a
meeting to discuss what comes next meaning after the pizza project. There
are a number of things we could potentially do and we've met to discuss
them and prioritize the things we think will be best to pitch to you. It
isn't really a finished proposal, but it's not raw either. Criteria
ranged from rev gen to i/t time required. These are what we thought you
wanted to see. You seemed to be very satisfied after our last meeting
that it was fruitful. Was simply trying to replicate that experience.

Now you're talking about a thorough review of FL vs WU. We covered this
at some length is the last pizza meeting. I have a mtg with them in 20
mins to redirect back towards getting data for FL vs WU as you requested
early this morning.

To refresh, Tim is working on improving the conversion pages...all of
them. Simple sentence to type, but lots of moving parts.

Am not making an argument for not sending RAs, far from it (I make the
distinction between an RA proper mail-out and subsequent free mailouts). 
I am simply saying we reach a point where we reach diminishing returns and
should keep in mind that barrier pages produce desired results as well. 
That is a lesson I learned from this team. Video is probably the perfect
case in point. 20 mins has slipped by fast. Am off to the meet with
them.

George Friedman wrote:

One of the points you have made several times to me is that we may be
giving away too much in Red Alerts, suppressing sales. This is an
extremely important issue. In looking at the relative effect of
strategies, I am trying to examine the validity of this point of view. 
I am getting assertions on this, but no data. So I've asked for some
data in order to find out what the truth is. Are we losing or gaining
business with Red Alerts and would be do better with fewer Red Alerts
and more emphasis on barrier pages. The issues that I have raised are
almost entirely derived from your assertion that we give away too much
on Red Alerts. I can't answer that question without data and your group
isn't producing data to show this. So I'm asking questions.

Second, you keep talking about Pizza Party and Tim's work. I don't know
if you realize this but I have no idea what Tim is doing. I get no
regular reports of what he has found, I don't get meetings with him, so
the only thing I know is what you occasionally mention in passing. I
asked for meeting to blue sky with them and you organized it so I would
get a presentation from them. This isn't what I wanted. I wanted to
participate in the development of their concepts in the same way that I
participate with my analysts team. I don't wait to talk to them until
they have a finished proposal. I am part of producing that proposal. 
In our meeting tomorrow, we are going to have friction because for me
this is a place for all of us to throw around ideas, and I suspect they
already have their position and are presenting me with views. I wind up
in a situation where I am going to be challenging their assertions at
fundamental levels and finding new things to research, where they think
they have already done their work. I really hope you tell them that
they are not making a presentation to me but that we are getting
together to talk about the things we might be doing in the future. As
it happens, I'm not only pretty smart and know a lot about the company,
but I'm also an operations research expert who knows the math pretty
well. I don't really want to critique Tim's work in front of the
others but the chances are that I am going to have a very different view
of his work than you do, simply because of my background. I am afraid
that the way you are setting this up will put me into conflict with the
group. You have already become incredibly defensive of Tim when I
haven't the slightest idea of what he's done beyond one barrier page for
Reva's article. I don't want to have conflict nor am I at the point
that I want their ideas. I don't want me vs. them. I want to have the
same working relationship with them that I have with intelligence. I
want to participate in the discussions leading to presentations, not get
presentations.

There are ways in which I want to work and do work that I need you to
understand. When you tell me that our Red Alerts give away too much,
I'm not going to ignore it. I'm going to think about it and ask for
data. I'm not going to accept it or reject it without a lot of
thought. And that thought will include comparing it to other ways of
doing things.

I don't like formal presentations and I don't like groups getting
together without me to come up with ideas to give me. I want to
participate in making the ideas. I don't want the team solidifying
around concepts only to have me come in and kick it down. It isn't the
way I work. I am very afraid tomorrow will be a disaster because Tim
has put a lot of work into his plan, I have no idea what his plan is and
if I don't like it, it will be me coming in and kicking his house down. 
This isn't how I like to work.

I go back to a point that is really pressing on me. I feel that I need
to have more control on the way we make high level decisions. The Op
Center is one thing. This is my idea. Grant has little concept of how
to do it. Yet he never reports to me and you don't make sure he does. 
Then we discover that he isn't doing what I want and all hell breaks
loose. I had asked every executive to contact me each week for
discussions. Frank does. Grant never does. As COO you need to be
making sure that my wishes are respected. 

Similarly, I wanted a blue sky with your team to begin the work. I have
a hunch I'm getting some finished proposals.

I'd like to spend some time with you fixing this broader situation.
There are some processes I need in place that align the company with my
expectations. We need to talk about what those are and how we can
achieve it. Your email this morning really drove home to me that you and
I need to get on the same page. We need to find a common ground.

Again, your email to me was a wake up call and I thank you for that. 
But we have to fix this.

Re: OBL's corpse

A chain of emails involving Fred Burton and George Friedman and the body of Osama bin Laden. They corroborate that the burial at sea story is a lie that worried even the intelligence community and that the United States took possession of Osama bin Laden's body.

Body is Dover bound, should be here by now.

him. But i dont know anyone who claimed he wasnt eicjhman. No comparison
with suddenly burying him at sea without any chance to view him which i
doubt happened.

If body dumped at sea, which I doubt, the touch is very Adolph Eichman
like. The Tribe did the same thing with the Nazi's ashes.

We would want to photograph, DNA, fingerprint, etc.

His body is a crime scene and I don't see the FBI nor DOJ letting that
happen.

A Chris Farnham also responded to these chains saying:

Bogus pics and bogus news stories of burials at sea.

Makes the US look dodgy and encourages distrust that the whole thing is
real...., conspiracy, CIA, Illuminati, etc.

Wonder if it's just a confluence of events or just a consequence of the
internet and the loonies it brings out.

FW: IMPEACH THESE CRIMINALS PLEASE - with 100 attached TORTURE CASE SUMMARIES

A blank email with a Word document attachment containing 100 graphic cases of mind control and ritual abuse sent by Aaric S. Eisenstein to Stratfor.

The testimonies were compiled by John Finch, and thus some allege this was a joke to be passed around at Stratfor. There are no responses to this email, however, and Aaric Eisenstein is a high-ranking executive with much to lose by sending out information like this without also explaining it as a joke.

Thus far the rail blast looks to have been my people [LG:Abkhaz], though
they must have been punk hooligans since they couldn't do it right and
nothing was really hurt or disrupted. Rail is back up and running
unfortunately. What a downer. Embarrassing too.

"Alpha" list

The [Alpha] mailing list appears to be a topmost level of communication for the heads of Stratfor, trumped only by the "secure" list run by Fred Burton, and includes George Friedman .

keep insight sent to alpha on the appropriate list

I had an ADP ask me about this email on the analysts list. It was sent
to Alpha as insight. I don't know why Peter's reply for this went to
analysts or if it was intentional or not, but as Stick and the WOs will
reiterate, we're not supposed to have any alpha material on the analysts
list, esp with source descriptions and coding.

Reportedly, we took the body with us. Thank goodness.
