    President Trump’s recent cabinet shake-up looks to be a real boost to hard-line militarism and neo-conservatism. If his nominees to head the State Department and CIA are confirmed, we may well have moved closer to war.Before being chosen by Trump to head up the CIA, Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo was one of the...
  • I am heartened to see some Senators – including Sen. Rand Paul – pledging to oppose President Trump’s nominees for State and CIA.

    Trump just let us all know his intentions by appointing (Israeli citizen and psychopathic war pig) John Bolton as National Security Advisor

    I pray God speed to Senator Rand Paul, and any other honorable congressmen willing to stand up to the Fiend.

    this may be the test of a lifetime, but then, if Trump is no more than just another zio-puppet, then it really looks like all is lost.

  • Stop supporting the neocons and the rest of the war mongers. White people especially – stop allowing/encouraging your children to join the military. As long as there are immoral people willing to serve the sick, twisted desires of these war pigs they will never stop their quest for global domination.

  • It’s troubling. There appears to be no hope of the neocons being dethroned in this political generation and therefore likely that they will eventually get their wish of war with Iran, particularly since the Gulf-Israel alliance.

    Fortunately Netanyahu is a psychopath and the broader Israeli national culture is one of psychopathy and so they will overextend without understanding the consequences and make themselves a pariah. Making Jersusalem the capital is the start to the end of Israel and Netanyahu and co are too stupid to see it.

    Israel simply did not steal enough territory to be viable and has acted in a manner that not even the most die-hard pre-war anti-semite could really have believed. (Or at least believed they’d get away with)

    Israel’s very quiet, slow-motion unofficial policy of ethnic cleansing was very effective since it meant Western diplomats could still pretend it wasn’t happening and that a two-state solution was being worked on, that things were in stasis. But to make Jerusalem the whole capital of Israel is to end the two-state solution and to end Israel’s being able to hide. That they tied it to Trump means the Left will be unable to stop their lower ranks from really seething about it with the gatekeepers becoming more clear in their real agendas.

    I don't think that any of those you mentioned are Christians, the news media simply reports that they are. I remember when GW Bush was president and was with a group of pastors. One of them proposed that they all recite their favorite verse of scripture. George W didn't know any and had to recite a line from a song he had heard.

    About your earlier statement that Americans are so easily controlled, my observation is that many of us can see what is being done to us and blamed on us by the political class, but we have absolutely no input into the political process.

    This is a large country, and people are spread out so that there are no concentrated centers of population except the cities, and those cities have a majority of the population totally dependent on government largesse. Add to that the fact that Americans are pretty isolated in their homes, and mesmerized by their TV sets.

    I don't have any answers for this problem.

    Well who have?

    I don’t have any answers for this problem.

    But your leaders have – Russians are to blame on. And while it’s the only answer everything will go that way.

  • Brennan’s going to eat a gun. We should start a pool on when. He’s Wisner without the brains. Fake Catholic, secret Muslim, both for wholly manipulative public-relations purposes, Brennan imagines himself the puppetmaster – smarter than you, man of mystery. But the admiration he lives for is going down the toilet as his crimes come out. And there’s no mystery about his fuckups. The public is increasingly aware of Brennan’s role in protecting the Saudi CIA cutouts that Wilshire’s shop infiltrated for 9/11 (see Kevin Fenton, Disconnecting the Dots.) And Brennan’s attempt to install Hillary Clinton as figurehead is a dumpster fire of comic ineptitude. It’s as if Bozo tried to be the fanged sewer clown in It. Or if Ted Bundy tried to kill long-haired brunettes but they all beat the crap out of him.

    Excuse me but do have to add this. I am fully aware that Zionist Jews are instigators of these abhorrent
    criminal deeds. But Bushes are Christians. Clinton is Christian, Obama is Christian. and Trump is a Christian. And majority of Senate and Congress are Christians.

    Than i am recalling the old wisdom. You can take horse to the river but cannot make him drink.

    Obama’s father was a muslim (no caps) and Obama never left his father’s religion. No Christian Obama. R. Wrights collection was not Christian, and Obama didn’t remember anything anyway.

  • Brennan is a muslim (no caps). Exhibit one: he reverts to that gulf-state lilting speech. Exhibit two: …
    Every muslim has the duty to spread islam. For islam all the laws are already written; our Constitution envisions the passage of additional laws (admittedly it would better some of those could be unpassed).
    Brennan can not uphold Constitional duties as a muslim.

  • Since Brennan apparently got away with murders now he thinks he can get away with anything. He has been Obama’s Hitman since 2007 when he murdered Obama’s 3 gay lovers because they wouldn’t look good in a presidential run.
    Then after breaking into the state department to alter / delete / create new records for Obama like his passports, birth certificate, Mother’s Records, Selective Service file, Etc to make it look like he was eligible to be president he murdered the only Witness to that break in. The witness was set to testify against him a few days later.

    “The system is breaking down in a very serious and dangerous manner as a result of decades of unaccountable oligarch plunder. A historic theft aided and abetted by politicians, intelligence agencies and corporate media, which provide the necessary backbone to keep oligarchy entrenched and the public confused and bickering about endless superficialities. If a thoughtful public backlash based on incisive analysis and energy capable of reforming this imperial oligarchy was coming, it would have arrived by now. It’s not coming, thus, imperial collapse is all but guaranteed. …
    It’s actually quite extraordinary that a people so systemically and obviously preyed upon cannot see what’s right in front of them. It’s mind-boggling that tens of millions are so easily divided and conquered into manufactured tribes intent on avoiding at all costs what’s really going on in this country, such as a fraudulent financial system, endless imperial wars and the ever encroaching surveillance state. Long story short, we as a people simply refuse to accept what’s really causing the rot in this country… “

    This is a large country, and people are spread out so that there are no concentrated centers of population except the cities, and those cities have a majority of the population totally dependent on government largesse.

    This was outed by Seymour Hersh long ago:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6VPp6K5-fQ&t=4m52s

    The provenance of the recording: it was leaked by Ed Butowsky to deflect bs around the Rod Wheeler lawsuit (re Seth Rich). You can listen to the whole thing for Hersh on what he knows and believes about Seth Rich (he knows that investigators found evidence he was the source of DNC emails, he believes Rich's murder was a coincidence).

    Seth Rich versus Dmitri Alperovitch (the CIA)

    https://scannedretina.files.wordpress.com/2017/01/russian-hackers-found-obama.pdf

    “Russians did not hack the DNC system, a Russian [Jew] named Dmitri Alperovitch is the hacker and he works for President Obama. … After CrowdStrike was hired as an independent “vendor” by the DNC to investigate a possible cyberattack on their system, Alperovitch sent the DNC a proprietary software package called Falcon that monitors the networks of its clients in real time. According to Alperovitch, Falcon “lit up,” within ten seconds of being installed at the DNC. Alperovitch had his “proof” in TEN SECONDS that Russia was in the network. This “alleged” evidence of Russian hacking has yet to be shared with anyone. …”
    — Moreover, his father, Alperovitch senior, is not just an acknowledged CIA asset but a liar inflating his educational credentials. Some family. Additional material re the scoundrel: https://af-mg.com/2017/09/21/breaking-seth-rich-hush-money/

    http://thefreethoughtproject.com/police-sources-murdered-dnc-staffer-contact-wikileaks/

    “Crowdstrike’s CTO and co-founder, Dmitri Alperovitch, is a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, a think tank with openly anti-Russian sentiments that is funded by Ukrainian billionaire Victor Pinchuk, who also happened to donate at least $10 million to the Clinton Foundation. …
    What legitimate reason would the DNC have for denying the FBI access to their allegedly hacked servers, and instead hire a private cyber security firm with a strong anti-Russian stance and with extremely close connections to Ukrainian oligarchs? The answer is that there is NO legitimate reason to do so. The only possible reason seems to be that the DNC didn’t want the FBI to be able to report that there was no Russian hack – as that would undermine the entire psyop/propaganda operation.”

    The pathetic Republicans might be finally pushing back on "collusion" but they still accept as established fact the claim Russia hacked the DNC and John Podesta even though that claim is based solely on the pronouncement of private firm Crowdstrike who were paid by the Democrats to deliver that finding. Utterly ridiculous.

    If Republicans lose Congress they'll blame Trump, but in truth it will be entirely the fault of the Republican party. They are contemptable.

    “…that claim is based solely on the pronouncement of private firm Crowdstrike.”
    – The Crowdstrike run by a vicious Russophobe of Jewish ethnicity, Dm. Alperovitch, who is also an “expert” at the Russophobic Atlantic Council. The latter is supported by the State Dept., NATO, and a Ukrainian oligarch connected to Biden family.
    Alperovitch should be investigated for his anti-American activities, since Alperovitch is the one who has produced a fraudulent analysis of the DNC server and proclaimed that Russians certainly hacked the server — instead of allowing the FBI to take care of the investigation.

    The same absurd argument we've had before. The FBI couldn't use the Steele dossier to get a warrant to verify its authenticity because it hadn't verified its authenticy! References to Brennan are just a pretext for claiming that Putin is "winning". The memo, which, one assumes, Trump solicited, is a tacit admission of Trump's guilt. He knows what Carter Page knows and he has no reason to want to suppress evidence which proves him innocent. In addition, Putin is now openly meddling in the forthcoming Italian election (google "lega nord putin" for the story and photos). If Putin is meddling in the Italian election, why wouldn't he have meddled in the US election? Having blundered into Ukraine and got himself bogged down, blundered into Syria and got himself bogged down, blundered into the US presidential election and got caught, he is now openly seeking to undermine the government of a US NATO ally!

    Mr. Kenney comes again with his zioconic irritation and with fairy tales directly from ziocon “stink-tanks.” Having approved Ukrainian neo-Nazis and the slaughter of 4 million people in the Middle East since 1999 (in the name of Eretz Israel and oil), his post is a tacit admission to his allegiance to Israel and to his ingrained Russophobia.

This process facilitated by Yeltsin caused Russia to default on its loans in 1998. Never have the US/UK banking and deep state complex forgiven Putin for destroying their dreams of continuing empire.

    “Never have the US/UK banking and deep state complex forgiven Putin for destroying their dreams of continuing empire.”
    Agree. Several researchers have already explained the involvement of perfidious Albion in creating and promoting Steele’s dossier; more details are emerging.
    The recent assault of the British legal system against Assange shows the long ears of the same “US/UK banking and deep state complex.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/british-judge-to-rule-on-assange-bid-to-get-warrant-dropped/2018/02/06/5eb1d466-0b1f-11e8-998c-96deb18cca19_story.html?utm_term=.eff343f160dc
    “Judge Emma Arbuthnot rejected a call from Assange’s lawyers for the warrant to be revoked because he is no longer wanted for questioning in Sweden over alleged sex crimes. It was issued in 2012 for jumping bail. “I am not persuaded the warrant should be withdrawn,” Arbuthnot told lawyers, journalists and Assange supporters gathered at London’s Westminster Magistrates’ Court.”
    – Sure. Arbuthnot’s husband served as Chairman of the Defence Select Committee from 2005 to 2014. The same bloody profiteering business. The moneyed Judge Emma Arbuthnot (her dad used to be a Director of Christie’s) prefers to feign ignorance of an important revelation that “Britain’s Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) dissuaded [actually, ordered] Sweden from attempting to drop extradition proceedings against Julian Assange as far back as 2013.” https://www.rt.com/uk/418546-british-prosecutors-urged-sweden-assange-extradition/

    Planting stories in the kept lugenpresse then citing the resulting articles as evidence is a common technique of the national security state. Anyone remember DickiePoo Cheney (the man with no heart) planting bogus weapons-of-mass-destruction stories with "reporter" Judith (the jooie) Miller whose stuff was dutifully published in the rapidly anti arab Jew York Times. DickiePoo then cited the stories as evidence that Iraq needed to be invaded and destroyed. This kind of propaganda is quite effective and very long lasting......to this day something like 60% of the american public still believe Saddam had a hand in the 911 false flag operation and probably future history books will agree.

    After Brennan was invlved into the criminal invasion of the sovereign state of Syria and after Brennan’s personal supervision of the coup d’etat in Kiev — including his personal supervision of the beginning of military actions against pro-federalists in east Ukraine (i.e., the military actions against civilian population of east Ukraine), the proverbial chickens came home to roost. The “humanitarian interventionists” have finally designed a plan for American coup d’etat in D.C. Mr. Brennan practiced the overthrowing of the legitimate governments in other countries before he decided to apply his skills in the “homeland.” Who needs the “Islamic terrorists” and “Russian security services” when the homegrown senior-level officials at the DOJ, the FBI, and the CIA apply their bold treasonous designs to subvert the US Constitution and to smother what is left of democracy in the US?
    The most amazing aspect of the ongoing scandal is the complete absence of any codex of honor among the senior-level officials at the DOJ, the FBI, and the CIA. They were caught red-handed on high-treason activities — and yet not a single suicide. Each of them cares about his/her pension, that’s it. This creates an impression that the senior-level officials at the DOJ, the FBI, and the CIA are opportunistic scoundrels and profiteers. Considering their level of incompetence shown during the attempted coup d’etat in D.C., the US needs, urgently, a complete overhaul of these three agencies. The DNC server story, the Awan affair, the creation of ISIS in the Middle East (thank you, Israelis and Gulfie despots, for cooperating with the US and NATO in committing crimes against humanity in the ME), and collaboration with Ukrainian neo-Nazis (hey, American veterans of the WWII, the State Dept. has a new understanding of Nazism), could be accomplished only under a “guidance” of blatantly incompetent and profiteering careerists.

    https://www.rt.com/op-ed/372705-brennan-crocodile-tears-syria/

    “Brennan is largely responsible for the chaos in Syria. He’s the one that led Obama by the nose in response to the Saudi and to the Israeli interests there to keep the revolts going. He and Defense Secretary Ashton Carter were against the ceasefire. Ashton Carter sent his air force to scuttle the ceasefire that was agreed to between Secretary Kerry and Lavrov in September. So for Brennan to shed crocodile tears now, well I might say, it’s giving hypocrisy a bad name.”

  • Remember folks, CIA was a creature not of Deep State but of the international syndicate now known as the Globalists at its creation in 1949. On surface, it reports to government of U.S. and serves people of America.

    But check out the legendary “Mother” James Jesus Angleton’s history as CIA counter-intelligence chief. He created the great “mole hunt” which paralyzed the agency for years. But this was a distraction preventing others discovering who the real moles were, and who they really served. IT WAS NOT THE SOVIETS.

    Angleton was born and raised near Boise, Idaho. His mother was a Mexican beauty (hence middle name Jesus) but illiterate. Did he develop a complex about this, feel deep anger toward some others? And consider his early work in England at the beginning of the war associating with MI6. He started wearing Brit garb and became, in the words of a Brit spy, more British than the British.

    So was Angleton recruited to work for MI6, but really for the controlling powers over both it and the OSS and later CIA?

In addition, Putin is now openly meddling in the forthcoming Italian election (google "lega nord putin" for the story and photos). If Putin is meddling in the Italian election, why wouldn't he have meddled in the US election? Having blundered into Ukraine and got himself bogged down, blundered into Syria and got himself bogged down, blundered into the US presidential election and got caught, he is now openly seeking to undermine the government of a US NATO ally!

    Seriously, what is it with cuckservatives like you, who exactly are you trying to appeal to with your anti white politics? Would you rather have Italy turn literally into a black state than back Lega Nord? Has it ever crossed your dim witted mind that all your stupid cold war James Bond roleplaying will not actually be possible once a white land turns non white. Even it somehow did, you must be out of your mind if you expect white people to back their non white majority to conduct war and other hostile acts against other white nations.

    The most idiotic in all this Zijlstra story is the statement that allegedly Russians think about Baltic States as a part of Greater Russia. I don't know what he was smoking (although considering that it is Holland, wink, wink) but one has to be really out of it to come up with such BS. Even in internationalists Soviet times Baltic were viewed as a separate culture and pretty much everyone knew that once USSR started to collapse that there will be no return of them no matter what. Today, overwhelming majority of Russians doesn't give a damn about them and as long as ethnic Russians are not persecuted, do not want to deal with them at all. Bypassing their ports is a great indicator of how insignificant they are in Russian considerations.

    You obviously do not know that NATO has stationed troops in the Baltic states against a Russian attack.
    I think now Dutch and/or Belgian air forces defend Baltic airspace.
    Even Russian navy ships pasing though the North Sea is news, as a Russian military aircraft in international airspace over the North Sea.
    All this, in my opinion, to create scare that Russia will attack.
    Or, even worse, to try to provoke Russia, as an excuse for war.

    Oh, I am keenly aware of those troops. If Russia really decides to "attack" in full force, those troops are not going to last very long, in fact--most of them probably will be destroyed as formations by stand-off weapons and aviation.

    It's also worth noting that sometimes the judge is in on it.

    I’d just hit agree if the button worked. If the court was deceived, surely it will defend its integrity by bringing charges. If our secret court botched that so badly, what else have they been up to? Unless there is some consequence for this alleged deception, I’ll assume the court was willfully blind.

    Alperovitch should be investigated for his anti-American activities, since Alperovitch is the one who has produced a fraudulent analysis of the DNC server and proclaimed that Russians certainly hacked the server -- instead of allowing the FBI to take care of the investigation.

Undoubtedly, there is miscegenation extant and both sides will necessarily be rather diplomatically disposed toward the other side. That’s another way to say “collusion”. Besides, the secret cabal runs the show, likely Vatican control invisible to the naked eye. We get our hopes so high wishing for prosecution of the Clintons and the Obama gang, but this may simply be fool’s gold. Too many politicians are mutually complicit, amply dirty, all have likely taken their oaths to support Israel at the expense of the American taxpayer.

  • My compliments on the rhetorical tactic of fixing responsibility on Brennan, but illegal anti-Russian war propaganda is an ongoing CIA project. CIA management, comprising multiple past and current DCIs, tasked CIA’s inchoate-crimes-against-peace skunkworks to crush unauthorized presidential candidate Donald Trump. With Trump’s Fibber McGee closet full of skeletons it should have been an easy weekend project, but CIA fecked it up. CIA’s the gang that couldn’t shoot straight. They’ve diffused their operations to conceal them but now they have so many incompetent moles infesting the constitutional cabinet departments that their project is a feckless, chaotic, monkeyhouse shitfight – like all their recent covert ops. That’s why Russia humiliates them at every turn.

    America has to crap out the CIA worm bolus. Brennan’s scolex is just the one that sticks out furthest. Prosecute or extradite the whole SIS and NCS.

    Zijlstra yesterday resigned.
    43 out of 150 gave a vote of non confidence against prime minister Rutte, whoa had to admit that he knew about the lie since several weeks.

    The recent assault of the British legal system against Assange shows the long ears of the same “US/UK banking and deep state complex.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/british-judge-to-rule-on-assange-bid-to-get-warrant-dropped/2018/02/06/5eb1d466-0b1f-11e8-998c-96deb18cca19_story.html?utm_term=.eff343f160dc
    "Judge Emma Arbuthnot rejected a call from Assange’s lawyers for the warrant to be revoked because he is no longer wanted for questioning in Sweden over alleged sex crimes. It was issued in 2012 for jumping bail. “I am not persuaded the warrant should be withdrawn,” Arbuthnot told lawyers, journalists and Assange supporters gathered at London’s Westminster Magistrates’ Court."
    -- Sure. Arbuthnot's husband served as Chairman of the Defence Select Committee from 2005 to 2014. The same bloody profiteering business. The moneyed Judge Emma Arbuthnot (her dad used to be a Director of Christie's) prefers to feign ignorance of an important revelation that "Britain's Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) dissuaded [actually, ordered] Sweden from attempting to drop extradition proceedings against Julian Assange as far back as 2013." https://www.rt.com/uk/418546-british-prosecutors-urged-sweden-assange-extradition/

    His appointment is in the grand tradition of Jesuitical sucking up to the powers-that-be.

    An especially egregious example of this would be the current Jesuit “Bishop of Rome” (his preferred parlance) playing footsie with communist China. And in the process throwing faithful Chinese under the proverbial bus – just being chalked up as collateral damage!

This kind of propaganda is quite effective and very long lasting……to this day something like 60% of the american public still believe Saddam had a hand in the 911 false flag operation and probably future history books will agree.

    After Brennan was invlved into the criminal invasion of the sovereign state of Syria and after Brennan's personal supervision of the coup d'etat in Kiev -- including his personal supervision of the beginning of military actions against pro-federalists in east Ukraine (i.e., the military actions against civilian population of east Ukraine), the proverbial chickens came home to roost. The "humanitarian interventionists" have finally designed a plan for American coup d'etat in D.C. Mr. Brennan practiced the overthrowing of the legitimate governments in other countries before he decided to apply his skills in the "homeland." Who needs the "Islamic terrorists" and "Russian security services" when the homegrown senior-level officials at the DOJ, the FBI, and the CIA apply their bold treasonous designs to subvert the US Constitution and to smother what is left of democracy in the US?
    The most amazing aspect of the ongoing scandal is the complete absence of any codex of honor among the senior-level officials at the DOJ, the FBI, and the CIA. They were caught red-handed on high-treason activities -- and yet not a single suicide. Each of them cares about his/her pension, that’s it. This creates an impression that the senior-level officials at the DOJ, the FBI, and the CIA are opportunistic scoundrels and profiteers. Considering their level of incompetence shown during the attempted coup d'etat in D.C., the US needs, urgently, a complete overhaul of these three agencies. The DNC server story, the Awan affair, the creation of ISIS in the Middle East (thank you, Israelis and Gulfie despots, for cooperating with the US and NATO in committing crimes against humanity in the ME), and collaboration with Ukrainian neo-Nazis (hey, American veterans of the WWII, the State Dept. has a new understanding of Nazism), could be accomplished only under a "guidance" of blatantly incompetent and profiteering careerists.

    "Brennan is largely responsible for the chaos in Syria. He’s the one that led Obama by the nose in response to the Saudi and to the Israeli interests there to keep the revolts going. He and Defense Secretary Ashton Carter were against the ceasefire. Ashton Carter sent his air force to scuttle the ceasefire that was agreed to between Secretary Kerry and Lavrov in September. So for Brennan to shed crocodile tears now, well I might say, it’s giving hypocrisy a bad name."

    Russiagate is the present manifestation that represents collective mania and psychosis of the moment. Economic disfunction will certainly manifest itself, and blame will inevitably be placed where ever is does not belong, which is the tendency of politicians and economists when their linear forecasts of prosperity collapse, as they do periodically. To attempt to characterize Russiagate as a projection of a subset of a larger malady is to diminish it, whereas it is a special event of its own, with its own foci. These foci are to diminish and deligitimize the presidency, and to create aggressive hostility towards Russia with the objective of destroying any hope for peaceful relations.
    I see the current mania and visible 'malady' as just the typical left-wing Democratic Party's tendency to blame someone or everyone else. In this case, they lost the election, saw it coming no matter what they or their media claimed, couldn't have it overturned by bogus court actions or intimidation of the electoral college, put in place landmines to undermine the new presidency in the months following the election, and continued their campaign of disinformation with new vigour after the Inauguration with the concerted help of the media and their friends still embedded in government.
    I think a partial cure for these sorts of events, typically after the Democrats lose elections, is to make the handover of government almost immediate, as they do in most Parliamentary systems, typically on the next day or so after losing an election, and is the reason why opposition parties have a shadow cabinet ready to take office quickly.
    Granted that the silly Russiagate stories started sometime before Election Day when the scandals revealed in the leaked-emails were becoming impossible to rationalize and dismiss, but a great measure of the damage caused by the Democrats would have been mitigated with an immediate handover of power. Over two and a half months of vindictive mischief is potentially too damaging.

    I do not disagree with what you wrote, but as a US person you are seeing Russiagate as a Democrat/Left malady. In reality, all manner of failing EU governments, conservative (UK) to social-democrat (Germany) has jumped into Russiagate head first. Therefore, Russiagate is a mania and a projection and even just a universal excuse for own failures: Putin dog ate my homework. Trains do not run on time because Putin sabotaged that.

    I respect your sentiment and the sentient of the "exiled off mainstreet", but I think that you are both quite mistaken. You are pointing out Russiagate as a malady, but Russigate is only a symptom of a much bigger and deeper malady. The US and the whole Western system is one huge debt- and lie-based house of cards. It is a matter of probably a few years when the whole thing will come tumbling down, firstly on the financial then all other liekets (a lie pretending to be a market). No-one knows how long one can live a lie, but the lie eventually comes to an end no matter how hard one tries to still kick the can further down the road.

    Therefore, whenever I read - Russia influenced our election - I understand: we are f'ed but we blame someone else. Therefore, Russiagate is a self-projection in a nutshell.

    Russiagate is the present manifestation that represents collective mania and psychosis of the moment. Economic disfunction will certainly manifest itself, and blame will inevitably be placed where ever is does not belong, which is the tendency of politicians and economists when their linear forecasts of prosperity collapse, as they do periodically.

    An acquaintance told me recently that Melania is ‘almost certainly a KGB asset‘. There you go, case closed…
     
    Your acquaintance is not wrong, but it was the GRU, who took over the operation when the KGB disbanded, in collusion with rogue, communist elements in SOVA (who recruited Melania in the mid '80s and managed her early career) that added some of the clever touches we're seeing today.

    It is, of course plain to anyone who knows him that Trump had no plans to run for any Presidency, but that Melania's constant insinuations skilfully massaged his ego to the point where he imagined himself in the Oval office, barking "You're Fired" at anyone who came in. Once his candidacy was announced, the Kremlin's political experts created and managed the strategies and tactics that Melania's handlers fed to her and the later recruited Ivanka, who in turn fed them to Jared and the campaign staff. Everyone, you may recall, said they wouldn't work, that they weren't working, and that the polls were right, but Melania/Ivanka stuck to their guns. Of course, they themselves had no idea, but that's why Trump thinks Ivanka walks on water.

    Meanwhile, other GRU operatives were sowing weak, easily debunked evidence of "Russian collusion" amongst the American intelligence agencies, the DNC, Hillary campaign officials, and of course the media, selectively reinforced by verbal communications from deep, "reliable & trusted" sources from inside the Kremlin itself. This had the effect of causing the Crappers to believe they were on to something big, focused their attention on Trump (who remains oblivious) and his aides, but also manoeuvred them into exposing themselves publicly as the fools and serial liars they had ever been. Totally discredited, they'll serve to cover Melania's trail by making laughable anything they may say later should her's and/or Ivanka's operational covers be blown.

    And that is how the Office of the President came to be run from the Kremlin via Trump Tower in NY, while the nominal POTUS goes to rallies, tweets, plays golf, and occasionally enjoys a little sword dancing. All in all, a daring operation, brilliantly executed. I swear that I've often seen the hand of the Serbian, and even elements of Czech intelligence services in this operation, but it's all plausibly deniable. Wheels within wheels...

    Anyway, one of the greatest intelligence coups in history, and the hand of Putin is evident throughout. We'll see how good a POTUS Putin will turn out to be. Running the Presidencies of two opposing super-powers simultaneously, one of them by remote control, would normally present a challenge for any man, but the general consensus in E. European intelligence circles is that Putin's actually enjoying himself. FWIW, those same circles say he'll run off with Melania when this is all over, so take that with a grain of salt.

That’s why it is not surprising that the West has not cared to relay the appalling – but unsurprising – Italian news interview with 3 men who claim they were snipers at Maidan Square in Kiev in February 2014. The Italian newspaper Il Giornale and Italian Mediaset Matrix TV (Channel 5, most popular in Italy, English subtitled report here) first carried the story.
    In the Italian report the 3 snipers claim to have been hired in the Georgian capital by Saakashvili’s military advisor, Mamuka Mamulashvili. Guns, passports and a $5,000 fee secured the allegiance of these mercenaries.
    One of the mercenaries is quoted as saying: “I also told him (Mamulashvili): ‘Things are getting complicated, we have to start shooting….But who should we shoot?’. He replied that who and where did not matter – we only had to shoot somewhere in order to sow chaos.”
    The Italian report confirms what was famously leaked in a 2014 phone call between European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton and Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet.
    Paet to Ashton: “…all the evidence shows that the people who were killed by snipers, from both sides, among policemen and people from the streets
    Paet to Ashton: “…so that now there is stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovych, but it was somebody from the new coalition.
    So everybody knew back in February 2014 that the Maidan Protests were not a true expression of the People’s will because they had been co-opted by sinister forces. Compounded with the vast presence of neo-Nazis and their Russophobic statements…
    The problem is that Mainstream Media like The Guardian denigrate such a leak as a “conspiracy theory” when it was actually a serious policy conversation between two top government officials. Either they can’t tell the difference, or they are controlled…”

    It will be even harder as the super-powers move towards a military confrontation. But with Putin's control of internet, he will pull it off...he has 'Melania' (obviously not her real name) by his side.

    Brennan and Clapper are agent provocateurs for the Zionists who control the U.S. government and the 17 gestapo agencies which in fact are controlled by dual citizen Zionists ie ISRAEL.

    Brennan and Clapper are under Zionist control and thus are traitors to the constitution of America and should be tried and sent to prison for life.

    Is seems that some big international government deep state types, grab the mind of our presidents and drive them into empire building.

    Cheney and Rumsfeld dominated Bush —- Brennan and Clapper, Obama — now Pompeo and Kushner own Trump.

    Hmm – how many CIA daily briefings before peace is kicked to the curb?

    I respect your sentiment and the sentient of the "exiled off mainstreet", but I think that you are both quite mistaken. You are pointing out Russiagate as a malady, but Russigate is only a symptom of a much bigger and deeper malady. The US and the whole Western system is one huge debt- and lie-based house of cards. It is a matter of probably a few years when the whole thing will come tumbling down, firstly on the financial then all other liekets (a lie pretending to be a market). No-one knows how long one can live a lie, but the lie eventually comes to an end no matter how hard one tries to still kick the can further down the road.

    Therefore, whenever I read - Russia influenced our election - I understand: we are f'ed but we blame someone else. Therefore, Russiagate is a self-projection in a nutshell.

    I am going to have to disagree with you on this one Kiza. You think that I am not able to see the big picture, but I think otherwise.

    This is about a regime (in Washington), which I would like to call a deep state regime that is getting increasingly frustrated by their own incompetence and they are looking for someone to blame. The pick of the moment is Russia, but they have other candidates lined up to fill that role.

    The regime in Washington is angry at Russia, because they think of them as adversary that they’ve dealt with and which shouldn’t attempt a comeback. The only reason why Russia is attempting a comeback is because of the total idiocy of the deep state regime.

    The world was handed to them on a plate with the dissolution of the USSR in 1991 and they had a free hand for about 15 years. It’s one of the most colossal blunders in history. In those 15 years – culminating with the invasion of Iraq in 2003, the deep state regime couldn’t do anything right.

    And now they are angry at Russia for not giving them enough time. It’s not only Russia who can’t afford to “give them more time”, the rest of the world can’t afford that luxury either. None of the actions of the deep state regime up to now suggest that they’ve got their s**t together.

    They were given a chance and now they are no longer worthy of that chance. The saying about history repeating itself first as a tragedy than as a farce totally doesn’t apply to US. They simply decided to skip couple of steps and make history appear as a farce right off the bat.

    “Saudi oil wealth has financed thousands of overseas religious schools and cultural centers to teach the most intolerant form of Wahhabi Islam. They award scholarships to talented young Muslims willing to spread Wahhabi propaganda and recruit mercenaries and political activists to advance the Saudi Monarch’s projections of global power.
    Saudi Arabia has long established de facto linkages with Israel, despite their superficial religious differences, based on their intense racist tribalism and common opposition to independent Iran and secular, nationalist Arab states…
    Saudi Arabia and Israel play the key roles in anchoring the ‘arc of reaction and terror’ in the Middle East. Both foment wars, finance terrorism and spread ethno-religious fragmentation leading to millions of refugees. Saudi Arabia’s ‘Crown Prince MBS’ competes with Israel’s Netanyahu in concocting the most outrageous warmongering slander against Iran, preparing the world for global conflagration.”

    Russiagate is the present manifestation that represents collective mania and psychosis of the moment. Economic disfunction will certainly manifest itself, and blame will inevitably be placed where ever is does not belong, which is the tendency of politicians and economists when their linear forecasts of prosperity collapse, as they do periodically. To attempt to characterize Russiagate as a projection of a subset of a larger malady is to diminish it, whereas it is a special event of its own, with its own foci. These foci are to diminish and deligitimize the presidency, and to create aggressive hostility towards Russia with the objective of destroying any hope for peaceful relations.
    I see the current mania and visible 'malady' as just the typical left-wing Democratic Party's tendency to blame someone or everyone else. In this case, they lost the election, saw it coming no matter what they or their media claimed, couldn't have it overturned by bogus court actions or intimidation of the electoral college, put in place landmines to undermine the new presidency in the months following the election, and continued their campaign of disinformation with new vigour after the Inauguration with the concerted help of the media and their friends still embedded in government.
    I think a partial cure for these sorts of events, typically after the Democrats lose elections, is to make the handover of government almost immediate, as they do in most Parliamentary systems, typically on the next day or so after losing an election, and is the reason why opposition parties have a shadow cabinet ready to take office quickly.
    Granted that the silly Russiagate stories started sometime before Election Day when the scandals revealed in the leaked-emails were becoming impossible to rationalize and dismiss, but a great measure of the damage caused by the Democrats would have been mitigated with an immediate handover of power. Over two and a half months of vindictive mischief is potentially too damaging.

    From correspondence between Herzl and von Plehve (Russian Minister of the Interior):

    Plehve: “We have had the occasion to make known to you the point of view from which the Russian Government at the present moment regards Zionism. This point of view could very easily inspire it with the necessity of exchanging its policy of tolerance for measures dictated by its safeguarding of national interests. So long as Zionism consisted in the desire to create an independent State in Palestine and promised to organize the emigration in Russia of a certain number of its Jewish subjects, the Russian Government could very well be favorable to it, but from the moment when this main object of Zionism is abandoned, in order to be replaced by a simple propaganda of Jewish national concentration in Russia, it is natural that the Government cannot, in any case, tolerate this new departure of Zionism. It would not have any other result than to create groups of individuals, perfect strangers to and even hostile to the patriotic sentiments which constitute the strength of each State.” 1903

    The cooperation between zionists and Ukrainian neo-Nazi has been proceeding on a governmental level, with Israel being an initiator of the cordial relationships: https://www.truthdig.com/articles/shocking-continuing-alliance-zionism-anti-semitism/

    “In Ukraine, Dmitry Yarosh, the leader of the neo-Nazi street fighting organization known as Right Sector, was granted a private audience in 2014 with Israel’s ambassador… Under the watch of Yarosh and his allies, neo-Nazism has since exploded across Ukraine, with mass marches of torch-bearing fascists filling the streets of Kiev and monuments to pogromist Nazi collaborators sprouting up around the country. “Ukraine has more statues 4 killers of Jews than any other country,” the anti-Nazi activist and researcher Efraim Zuroff lamented on Twitter.
    …..
    “Israel has no problem allying itself with anti-Semites who support its colonialism.” Zionists like Herzl and anti-Semites like Balfour shared the view that the presence of assimilationist-minded Jews on the continent was unacceptable. Herzl “disdained poor Jews in Western Europe and blamed them for anti-Semitism… Like Herzl, anti-Semitic European elites viewed a Jewish state as a convenient means for reducing the Jewish population within their societies. “The anti-Semites will become our most dependable friends, the anti-Semitic countries our allies,” Herzl declared.

    The alliance deepened during World War Two, as the Zionist movement broke the international Jewish boycott of Nazi Germany to embark on a lucrative Transfer Agreement with Hitler’s government that exchanged Jewish property for the bodies the Zionists needed to colonize Palestine. As Massad pointed out, when the fugitive Nazi functionary Adolph Eichmann was captured in 1960 and brought to Israel for trial a year later for war crimes, it was his second visit to the Holy Land. Indeed, Eichmann had been a guest of the Zionist movement in 1937, hosted for a tour of kibbutzim in historic Palestine by a double Zionist-Nazi agent named Feibl Folkes.”

    The interesting development is that, after no proof for the "Russian hacking" allegations could be found, they turned to simple ads (for amounts that are extremely small compared to what the campaigns spent) and social media postings. This was accompanied by loosening the criteria, they did not even pretend any more that they had indications that these social media activities were connected to the Russian state, they just had to be "Russia-linked". In the case of Twitter, this includes anyone who has ever logged in from Russia, uses Cyrillic signs in the account metadata (that could also be connected with a number of other countries), logged in from a Russian IP address, paid something with a Russian credit card etc., and only one condition had to be fulfilled for an account to be counted as "Russia-linked".

    Of course, with such a large country, there are certainly some social media activities that are "linked" with it. There can be many reasons - people who travel, migrants in both directions, or simply Russians with an interest in US politics. From what is known, the ads and postings were so diverse - some right-wing and pro-Trump, some leftwing or critical of Trump, and many not directly linked to the elections - and distributed over a large time with many after the elections that it does not seem too unlikely as a result of social media activities of random people who have some connection with Russia.

    Of course, we may speculate in each case, why someone posted something or bought an ad. But before speculating, it would be necessary to have data about ads and social media postings linked to other countries. For example, it could be determined with the same criteria which ads and postings were Brazile-linked, Germany-linked, and Philippines-linked. Probably, there, a similar random collection would emerge. Only if there is something special about the Russia-linked ads and postings, it would even make sense to speculate about the reasons.

    We don't know whether these "Russia-linked" ads and social media positings were just random activities by people related to Russia (e.g. about 2% of the US population have Russian as their native language, some may not have many contacts with Russia any more and don't travel there regularly, but others do) or whether a part of them was the result of an organized campaign, but in any case, from what was written in the media, the volume of these social media activities does not seem to be very large (but in order to judge that, social media activities linked to other countries with the same criteria would be needed).

    What I find hilarious is how people sometimes try to insert a collusion angle even if it is not about hacking, but about social media ads and postings. This becomes completely absurd. Then, the idea is that Russians contacted the Trump campaign in order to find out which ads they should buy and what they should post on social media. Why should they do so? If the Trump campaign had ideas about what to post and what kind of ads to buy, why didn't they just do it themselves or via an American company? What would be the point of the Trump campaign spending $564 million on the campaign, but then do a small part of the campaign via Russians who then spent a few thousand dollars for buying ads and posting messages the Trump campaign had advised them to via "collusion"? After all, if they had done it themselves or via an American intermediary, there would be nothing nefarious or suspicious about this, this idea that for a very small part of their campaign, they colluded with Russians and told them what to post and which ads to buy almost sounds as if they deliberately wanted to behave in a strange way that could then fit a preconceived collusion narrative. And even if they had outsourced some small part of their campaign to a Russian company for some odd reasons, would that make it nefarious?

    I think the Russiagate theorists should at least make sure that their theories don't violate basic principles of common sense. If they want to use the hacking story, the involvement of Russian secret services might theoretically make sense - it might not be so easy for the Trump campaign to hack servers themselves (though phishing is hardly something so sophisticated that only secret services can do it, we're not talking about something like Stuxnet), and something illegal would be involved. That is a theory that could in principle make sense, the only problem is, that no evidence for this is available (and the Russians are certainly not the only ones who might have had an interest in these mails, another plausible theory is that it was an insider who disliked how the Clinton campaign took over the DNC early on and created better conditions for Clinton than for Sanders, and it could have been any hacker who, for some reason disliked Hillary Clinton, the DNC, and Podesta). If the Russiagate theorists switch over to simple social media activity because there is no evidence for Russian secret services being responsible for giving e-mails to Wikileaks, they also have to sacrifice the whole "collusion" part of the story. It might be that some Russians used social media in an organized way, but to invent a story that the Trump campaign "colluded" with Russians for a small part of their social media election campaign hardly makes sense.

    The only condition under which it might somehow make sense would be if someone thought Russians are intellectually vastly superior to Americans and know much better what potential voters care about, and their capabilities are even vastly above Cambridge Analytics. Then, it might somehow make sense for the Trump campaign to hand over a part of the social media activities to Russians, and this might somehow be seen as an unfair advantage - but again, if, with that assumption, the Russians are intellectually so vastly superior that can have a significant influence with very small amounts of money and works while the Trump and Clinton campaigns spend billions, why would they have to "collude" with the Trump campaign, people who would be intellectually so much below them according to that assumption? Maybe real genius for targeting potential voters only emerges when Americans and Russians with complementary abilities collaborate? In any case, it is already very difficult just to construct a version of that theory that does not violate basic principles of common sense.

    OTOH, it’s 100% verified that the UKRAINE interfered tangibly in the 2016 US election — for the benefit of Hillary Rotten Clinton.

    An acquaintance told me recently that Melania is ‘almost certainly a KGB asset‘. There you go, case closed…
     
    Your acquaintance is not wrong, but it was the GRU, who took over the operation when the KGB disbanded, in collusion with rogue, communist elements in SOVA (who recruited Melania in the mid '80s and managed her early career) that added some of the clever touches we're seeing today.

    It is, of course plain to anyone who knows him that Trump had no plans to run for any Presidency, but that Melania's constant insinuations skilfully massaged his ego to the point where he imagined himself in the Oval office, barking "You're Fired" at anyone who came in. Once his candidacy was announced, the Kremlin's political experts created and managed the strategies and tactics that Melania's handlers fed to her and the later recruited Ivanka, who in turn fed them to Jared and the campaign staff. Everyone, you may recall, said they wouldn't work, that they weren't working, and that the polls were right, but Melania/Ivanka stuck to their guns. Of course, they themselves had no idea, but that's why Trump thinks Ivanka walks on water.

    Meanwhile, other GRU operatives were sowing weak, easily debunked evidence of "Russian collusion" amongst the American intelligence agencies, the DNC, Hillary campaign officials, and of course the media, selectively reinforced by verbal communications from deep, "reliable & trusted" sources from inside the Kremlin itself. This had the effect of causing the Crappers to believe they were on to something big, focused their attention on Trump (who remains oblivious) and his aides, but also manoeuvred them into exposing themselves publicly as the fools and serial liars they had ever been. Totally discredited, they'll serve to cover Melania's trail by making laughable anything they may say later should her's and/or Ivanka's operational covers be blown.

    And that is how the Office of the President came to be run from the Kremlin via Trump Tower in NY, while the nominal POTUS goes to rallies, tweets, plays golf, and occasionally enjoys a little sword dancing. All in all, a daring operation, brilliantly executed. I swear that I've often seen the hand of the Serbian, and even elements of Czech intelligence services in this operation, but it's all plausibly deniable. Wheels within wheels...

    Anyway, one of the greatest intelligence coups in history, and the hand of Putin is evident throughout. We'll see how good a POTUS Putin will turn out to be. Running the Presidencies of two opposing super-powers simultaneously, one of them by remote control, would normally present a challenge for any man, but the general consensus in E. European intelligence circles is that Putin's actually enjoying himself. FWIW, those same circles say he'll run off with Melania when this is all over, so take that with a grain of salt.

    Becoming friends with Russia, the only potential enemy available, would destroy the MIC. A real possibility the Washington establishment will never allow to happen.

    The Maidan revolution and its neo-Nazi consequence makes an amazing monument to the Kagans’ clan:

    “Thousands of Ukrainian ultra-nationalists marched in Kiev, Thursday, celebrating the 106th birthday of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN) leader Stepan Bandera [famous Nazis collaborator]. Among the main organisers were representatives of Right Sector and Svoboda.” https://www.liveleak.com/view?i=6a7_1420142767#gDHooVSL6b0yQ1SG.99
    “Members of the Ukrainian neo-Nazi Azov volunteer battalion and their ultranationalist civilian sympathizers have conducted a torchlit procession in the center of the eastern Ukrainian city of Mariupol, held under the slogan “coming after you!” http://axisoflogic.com/artman/publish/Article_72571.shtml
    “A leader of Ukrainian Jewry condemned the hosting in Lviv of a festival celebrating a Nazi collaborator on the anniversary of a major pogrom against the city’s Jews.” http://www.jpost.com/Diaspora/Ukraine-city-to-hold-festival-in-honor-of-Nazi-collaborator-498159
    The wide-spread desecration of Jewish cemetries by Ukrainian thugs (a post-Maidan phenomenon) has spilled to Poland: “Yet another case of vandalism by Ukrainian nationalists is on the record in Poland. This time, an old Jewish cemetery in Kraków became the target of thugs from the neighboring state. The graves of Polish Jews who died over a century ago were destroyed by those hot-blood Ukrainians.” https://www.reddit.com/r/antisemitism/comments/5npnj5/ukrainian_nationalists_stand_behind_desecration/
    “Vandals desecrated the Korinovskaya Jewish Cemetery in Kiev. They destroyed two entire sections: 27 and 28. These acts of vandalism are very systematic: every night they destroy one or two headstones. According to the elderly women who look after the place, these vandals are usually drunken youths who come there to wreak destruction. The Zaddik of Chernobyl is buried in this cemetery. These vandals destroyed his gravestone, smearing Satanic Cult symbols on it.” http://antisemitism.org.il/article/58386/ukraine-8211-desecration-jewish-cemetery-kiev
