On Monday the Republican led House Intelligence Committee voted along party lines to #ReleasetheMemo, detailing how falsehoods from the so-called #SteeleDossier commissioned by the Democrats was used by the Obama Justice Department and FBI to justify FISA surveillance against Americans. The response of the Democrats and their deep state defending allies in the legacy media has been rage and claims that the Republicans are attacking the FBI/DOJ to defend Trump from the Russia investigation, which led by special counsel Robert Mueller, is supposed to produce damning evidence of some crime committed or ordered by Donald Trump any day now...eighteen months after it began. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) insists the four page 'Nunes memo' named for Intel Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) contains 'cherry picked' intel to make the squeaky clean DoJ/FBI employees involved in obtaining a warrant to spy on Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page look bad.Read More
On Monday, Robert Mueller fired his first salvo in the soft coup against President Trump. He indicted Paul Manafort and his aide, Richard Gates, for tax and money laundering “conspiracies” and reporting violations under both the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA -- a law as selectively enforced as any) and the Foreign Bank Account Reporting Act, false statements under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, and false statements. All of the indictment counts involve the proceeds of Manafort’s lobbying activities on behalf of the government of Ukraine which was overthrown by the British and the Obama Administration in a coup led by neo-Nazis in 2014.Read More
Defeated presidential candidate and lifelong grifter Hillary Clinton is out in the legacy media this week, promoting her book What Happened and accusing Trump's campaign of colluding with the Russians.
If the consequences from an accelerating Eurasian and now even Venezuelan dump of the U.S. dollar wouldn't be so dire, the entire #MuhRussia story concocted by deep staters and the suddenly ultra-hawkish fake liberal presstitutes would make for a hilarious Cold War farce.
Instead, as my friend The Saker writes the initial optimism in Moscow regarding the election of Trump has turned to contempt for the extent to which the USA is disappearing up its own paranoid rear orifice faster than you can say, "Russian troll-bots organized an anti-refugee rally in Idaho" (which four people can seem to recall attending if it happened at all). Trump being bullied and blocked from pursuing his campaign promise of detente with Russia has also revealed who really runs Washington, and that certainly isn't the man sitting in the Oval Office. Vladimir Putin put it succintly in a recent press conference when Vlad stated that Trump isn't his bride and he is not a groom, and that it's difficult to constructively engage people who confuse Austria and Australia (alluding to a gaffe by President Obama, but intended as a dig against the American political class in general).Read More
