Pompeo Testifies, Affirms No Crimea Recognition, Neocon Senators Push Sanctions on Russian Sovereign Debt

Those who watched Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s testimony to the Senate on Wednesday about the content of the President’s meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin could be forgiven for thinking nothing has changed in U.S.-Russia relations. Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ), who is co-authoring legislation with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) to increase sanctions against Russia including targeting investors in the Eurasian country’s sovereign bonds led the questioning of Pompeo.

To the Secretary of State’s credit, Pompeo defended Trump’s prerogative to meet one on one with Putin and just their translators in the room as hardly unprecedented for great power summits. He also emphasized that U.S. policy with regards to non-recognition of Crimea’s accession to the Russian Federation and the Ukraine sanctions had not changed as a result of the Trump-Putin meeting. What has changed is the deep state’s recognition of defeat in Syria and constructive talks between Moscow, Washington and Tel Aviv on ending the conflict in that country — despite the provocative Israeli shoot down of a Syrian Air Force jet along the Golan Heights.

False Flags, Fake News, Regime Change In Washington Exposed As Made In London

With each passing day, revelations are emerging which show that not only are the "news stories" proliferating in the media about Presidents Trump, Putin, Xi, and Syria's Assad full of lies, but come from London-directed networks, which are out to sabotage the potential for peace through development, which is the aim of the new "win-win" paradigm and is emerging with the New Silk Road global program. Associates of the Schiller Institute have been at the forefront in exposing these lies, while explaining their origin, in London, but also their cause: the rejection by these circles of the New Paradigm, which Helga Zepp LaRouche has played a leading role in bringing into existence

Tougher Line: Russia Hosts Chinese Warships in Baltic, Donetsk Declares Malorossiya

Several days have passed since President Donald J. Trump's first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 in Hamburg. Along with the handshake and two hours plus meet and greet open to cameras, the two world leaders also met with more privacy before midnight local time at dinner. After the legacy media breathlessly reported this second Putin-Trump face to face conversation based on Eurasia Group President Ian Bremmer's claim Monday that only the Russian leader's interpreter was nearby, an angry Trump tweeted that the press pool and G20 leaders had known all about Mr. Bremmer's 'scoop' and failed to report it earlier. The latest #TrumpRussia 'scandal, combined with the instant leak of a transcript of Trump's phone call with British Prime Minister Theresa May, in which the President reportedly sought to avoid British venues open to protesters in an upcoming visit to the UK, magnified the impression of chaos in Washington. The fact that the President's own party majority in Congress also failed to agree on an Obamacare replacement bill this week only underscores the general sense of disarray and backbiting in the undrained D.C. swamp.

The American Deep State meanwhile, through its mouthpieces like the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) published journal Foreign Policy and the James Comey leaks-cheerleading Lawfare, is pushing the ludicrous line that Donald Trump Jr's useless meeting with a few (likely Fusion GPS dodgy dossier authoring firm linked) Russians in June 2016 constitutes a violation of the 1917 Espionage Act. Looking at the fanatical opposition any rapprochement with Russia faces in Washington, it's little wonder that the Kremlin and its Chinese allies are, in the words of The Sirius Report's London Paul texted to me, losing patience with the idea that a besieged, confused or infiltrated Trump White House can deliver anything of substance.
