As V the Guerrilla Economist likes to say desperate people do desperate, stupid things and the stakes for various deep state players -- especially the deep state front men troika of ISIS-USUS/AlCIAeda arming former CIA Director John Brennan, the fanatical Russophobe and perjurer before Congress about NSA mass surveillance Jim Clapper, and the Clinton crime family accomplice and now New York Times visiting fired-by-Trump FBI Director James Comey. -- JWS
In attacking Trump's efforts for collaboration with Putin, Clapper dismissed the likelihood that this could succeed, asserting there are "irreconcilable differences" between the U.S. and Russia. When pressed on whether there is evidence of collusion, he said, "Is there a smoking gun with all the smoke? I don't know the answer to that." Clapper said that Trump's firing of Comey is "egregious and inexcusable," describing his co-conspirator as a "personal friend and a personal hero of mine." After the most recent ejaculation of this nonsense, with Comey's lying testimony in Senate hearings on June 8 -- which included his own Cold War-style anti-Russian diatribes, reminiscent of former disgraced FBI Director and committed Russophobe J. Edgar Hoover -- senior American statesman Lyndon LaRouche issued a call for a decisive response from the American people. He said on June 9 that "it is time for the people to speak and end this disruptive and highly dangerous attempted coup. It is also time for the coup plotters to be investigated, including the treasonous news media."
This is what Roger Stone, an adviser to Presidents Nixon and Reagan, and a catalyst for Trump's presidential campaign, called "bringing out the Watergate playbook." He was referring to the tactic used to drive Nixon out of office, accusing him of obstructing justice into a probe of a burglary of the DNC headquarters during the 1972 presidential campaign, which was never proven to have been ordered by Nixon. The botched burglary, carried out by Deep State operatives in the CIA, most of whom had been involved in the disastrous Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba in 1961, became the basis for what LaRouche identified at the time as a coup against Nixon. Stone insists that the removal of Nixon was based on opposition to his policy of détente with the Soviet Union, and his opening of diplomatic relations with China.
