The Empire Based in London Won't Give Up: They Must, and Can Be Defeated

The Empire Based in London Won't Give Up: They Must, and Can Be Defeated

Some very interesting things happened headed into this weekend in Washington as the soft coup against President Donald Trump continues to unravel. First and foremost, U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III questioned whether special counsel Robert Mueller exceeded the remit of his investigation into supposed Russian meddling in the 2016 election, by indicting Paul Manafort for alleged money laundering and failing to register as a foreign agent for Ukraine — offenses that took place well before Manafort briefly served as Trump’s campaign chairman. In unusually scathing language, the judge asked whether Mueller’s indictments were simply a legal pretext to compel Manafort into testifying against Trump. While any ruling by Ellis in favor of Manafort’s petition to dismiss the charges will surely be appealed, the mainstream media hyped impeccability and competency of Mueller’s investigation was ripped to shreds by a Reagan appointed federal judge who’s served on the bench for decades.

More relevant to the D.C. swamp creatures who waged a vendetta of leaks and laundering fraudulent opposition research paid for by the Clinton camp and produced by a British spy into the U.S. intelligence agencies, the Democrat-friendly Time magazine had to admit a pending report from Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz is hanging like a thundercloud over an increasingly frustrated if not demoralized FBI. Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is facing charges of lying to investigators while trying to blame subordinates for the media leaks he coordinated, in order to distract attention from his wife accepting campaign cash from a Clinton operative. Speaking of lying to the FBI, the charge retired Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) director and briefly serving ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn plead guilty to, in testimony by then Director James Comey freshly released by Congressional Republicans, Comey doubted that Flynn actually sought to deceive federal agents. The topic of questioning at that time being Flynn’s perfectly legal and authorized by the incoming administration (and 100% recorded by the FBI and NSA) phone conversations with the then Russian Ambassador Sergey Kisylak. In other words, even though Flynn plead guilty and began cooperating with Mueller’s team after facing financial ruin, President Trump now has a stronger case for pardoning the general (whose son Mike Flynn Jr. maintains his innocence).

Cold Turkey: How War on the Rocks' Contributors Clint Watts and Andrew Weisburd Lied By Omission About the Incirlik Power Cutoff (But Trust Them, Russia Hacked the Election for Trump)

Cold Turkey: How War on the Rocks' Contributors Clint Watts and Andrew Weisburd Lied By Omission About the Incirlik Power Cutoff (But Trust Them, Russia Hacked the Election for Trump)

Back in mid-July after the failed putsch against Turkish president turned dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Team RogueMoney and other alt-media gave extensive coverage to what was going on at the Incirlik Air Base, where many of the alleged coup plotters in Turkey's military served alongside U.S. counterparts before being arrested for treason. One of the oddities we noticed at the time was how some military oriented media such as Stars and Stripes were forced into covering the cutoff of electricity to the base, a key installation for the hosting of American B61 tactical nuclear bombs in Europe, due to the legitimate concerns of family and friends about the U.S. servicemen sweating in the summer heat without air conditioning at the facility.

However, to read articles published by Clinton Watts or Andrew Weisburd written for War on the Rocks (WoTR) and The Daily Beast, you'd think any doubts expressed on Facebook or Twitter about the security of Incirlik, its large tactical nuclear arsenal and the American servicemen and women there were all fabricated by sophisticated Russian propaganda trolls. In the aftermath of a Turkish policeman's assassination of a Russian Ambassador raising the question of Islamist if not ISIS infiltration of Turkey's security forces, and the prospect of the next attack (one that won't be sickeningly welcomed by a columnist for the NY Daily News) being against a U.S. diplomat or facility like Incirlik, Watts' and Weisburd's poo-pooing of last July's power cutoff merits another look. So too, does the faux Atlanticist, globalist agenda the two men are pushing -- which comes perilously close to advocating a fulltime, U.S. government run propaganda machine to attack the alt-media in real time for allegedly repeating Russian government-produced agitprop.
