the CIA at work with dirty tricks...

cia

Rod Dreher still believes in fairies. He is caught between his love of Trump and his love of the constitution which says nothing about having to impeach Trump for being a swamp creature...

 

There will be a lot of energy spent by commentators about the value and reasons to impeach Trump until the next elections — and no matter what, this is what Trump wants: distract the punters by flying close to the sun. He won't be impeached, even if he should. Meanwhile Joe Biden will sink as the truth is revealed about his son — all without damaging the previous efforts of the USA to shift the allegiance of Ukraine from Russia to that of the "free world", by sponsoring the Ukrainian Nazis...

 

Here is Rod:

 

I don’t know if impeachment is the answer. I’m disinclined to think so, but I certainly don’t rule it out. There’s more than enough to justify an investigation. I am at a conference in Massachusetts today, and last night after dinner, I spent an hour or two reading the day’s impeachment news. It’s exhausting, and I am extremely discouraged that this is what we’re going to have to deal with every day for the next year, until the election.

Here’s the thing: the main reason we are having to do this is because Donald Trump is reckless to a shocking degree. One day after the Mueller Report failed to take him down, he gets on the phone with the Ukraine president and pops off like this. How hard is it to restrain yourself? I resent the hell out of Donald Trump for putting so many conservatives, especially Republican lawmakers, in the position of having to defend him over stupid, easily preventable missteps.

I genuinely don’t know what to think about him, and what should be done about all this. I guess that makes me a very small sliver of the American electorate, most of whom have made their minds up. Some of you readers chastise me because I’m too forgiving on Trump. Others chastise me because I’m not as supportive of him as you think I should be. I’m on record here as saying that despite his rottenness, I might vote for him anyway in 2020, on the principle of “Vote For The Crook, It’s Important”. I believe, however, that there has to be a bright red line. Would you vote for a confessed murderer for president? If not, then that’s one line. What would Trump have to do that would cause me to support his impeachment, or at least to vote against him for re-election — this, in spite of the very real and significant damage a Democratic president would do to causes (abortion, religious liberty) that mean a lot to me?

"everything’s allowed" just isn’t working anymore...

Western dominance is on the wane, ‘we’re liberals so everything’s allowed’ just isn’t working anymore – Lavrov at UNGA.


The West ignores reality by trying to prevent the formation of a multi-polar world by imposing its narrow “liberal” rules on others, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has told the UN General Assembly.

Lavrov’s speech on Friday at the UN headquarters in New York focused on global challenges but, unlike some of the speakers, he didn’t mince words, proceeding into a full-on rebuke of the Western ideal of world order.

It’s hard for the West to accept that its centuries-long domination is diminishing.

New centers of economic growth and political influence are emerging internationally, he said, but the US and its allies are trying to impede the rise of the multi-polar world.

In order to achieve this, they “impose the standards of conduct based on narrow Western interpretation of liberalism on others. In short, ‘We’re liberals hence anything is permitted to us’” was how he characterized this attitude.

The West has been increasingly forgetting about international law and more often dwell on rules-based order.

As opposed to this counterproductive approach, lasting solutions to global challenges should be founded “on the basis of the UN Charter, through the balance of interests of all states,” the Russian FM recommended.

and by the way don’t call me again...

“We’ve been very good to your country. Very good. No other country has done as much as we have. But you know what? I don’t see much reciprocity here. I hear what you want. I have a favor I want from you, though. And I’m gonna say this only seven times, so you better listen good.”

“I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent, understand, lots of it. On this and on that. I’m going to put you in touch with people...and by the way don’t call me again. I’ll call you when you’ve done what I asked.”

Sounds dramatic, but the only problem? Trump didn’t say any of this. Not a word. Schiff was mocked by Republican lawmakers and pundits for being so “desperate” that he resorted to rewriting the call into “unhinged ‘Orange Man Bad’ fan fiction.”

was this a way to weed out a double-agent?

A CBS 60 Minutes report suggested that the whistleblower struck a deal with the US government to place them under federal protection, but attorney representing the anonymous contributor have debunked the report, noting that talks are still in process.


On Sunday, the legal group representing the whistleblower who filed a report that led to US President Donald Trump’s impeachment debunked a report that their client is under federal protection. Earlier on Sunday, CBS’s 60 Minutes reported the suggestion, citing a letter sent by the Compass Rose Legal Group to Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire saying they have concerns regarding the whistleblower’s safety.


In the letter, the Compass Rose Legal Group quotes Trump’s comments as grounds for their concerns.


“I want to know who’s the person that gave the Whistleblower, who’s the person that gave the Whistleblower the information, because that’s close to a spy. You know what we used to do in the old days when we were smart? Right? With spies and treason, right? We used to handle them a little differently than we do now,” Trump said on 26 September.


The legal group’s letter also notes that “certain individuals” have offered a $50,000 bounty for “any information” regarding the whistleblower’s identity.


But the suggestion of federal protection was debunked by Mark S. Zaid, an attorney for the whistleblower.


"60 Minutes completely misinterpreted the contents of our letter. Nor have we […] reached any agreement with the Congress on contact with the whistleblower. Discussions remain ongoing,” he tweeted.

well, son of a bitch, he got fired...

The former Vice President’s campaign staff is demanding that US TV networks stop featuring Trump’s lawyer because he keeps reminding viewers of Biden’s shady dealings, including one that Biden has publicly admitted.

US Presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign reportedly contacted TV stations urging them not to book Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani for interviews, because he smears their candidate, Fox News reported Sunday.

According to the interview, the campaign sent a memo drafted by aides Kate Bedingfield and Anita Dunn, which voiced “grave concern that [US TV Channels] continue to book Rudy Giuliani on your air to spread false, debunked conspiracy theories on behalf of Donald Trump.”

"While you often fact check his statements in real time during your discussions, that is no longer enough. By giving him your air time, you are allowing him to introduce increasingly unhinged, unfounded and desperate lies into the national conversation,” the memo, sent to NBC News, CBS News, Fox News and CNN, reportedly said.

The memo asked the networks that if they continue to book Giuliani to provide an equal amount of time to a representative of the Biden campaign. The memo underscored that Giuliani is not a public official, but a personal advisor and lawyer to Trump.

Hours earlier before the memo was released, Giuliani was on several TV shows suggesting to viewers that Joe Biden’s corruption has been hiding in plain sight for months unnoticed by the media.

In particular, Biden admitted on camera that he previously pressed former Ukrainian President Poroshenko into firing then-prosecutor general Viktor Shokin, directly threatening to cut $1 billion in US military aid if Shokin was not dumped. 

“I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. […] I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,” Biden says on a video recorded during a meeting two years after his departure from office.

"Well, son of a b***h, he got fired," Biden said, laughing.

Democrats are accusing Trump of doing the same thing with Ukraine President Zelensky, accusing Trump of requesting that Zelensky probe Biden and his son. Democrats speculate that Trump withheld military aid to Ukraine as leverage against Zelensky. Unlike Biden’s video confession, the transcript appears to contain no direct threats which could be interpreted as a ‘quid pro quo’ demand for favors.

Giuliani reminded ABC News that there is an affidavit by Shokin published online six months ago that stated that Biden’s son Hunter was under investigation in Ukraine at the time that Shokin was fired.

“I have an affidavit here that's been online for six months that nobody bothered to read from the gentleman who was fired, Viktor Shokin, the so-called corrupt prosecutor," Giuliani said. "The Biden people say that he wasn't investigating Hunter Biden at the time. He says under oath that he was."

Giuliani speculated that, should Biden’s lawyers post similar affidavits, they would remain equally unnoticed by the media and investigators.

Giuliani recalled another case in which Hunter Biden allegedly took $1.5 million from Chinese representatives during Biden’s trip to China in 2013.

"There's evidence that they got $1 billion directly from China, specific date, 12 days after they returned from a trip to China," Giuliani asserted. "There's evidence that another $500 million went in, and there are three partners."

before crazy trump, the USA were full of crazies...

Rod Dreher loses his patience with Mistah Trump...

This is fake outrage. Here’s a link to Schiff’s opening statement. At the four minute mark, just before he says the words that so offend POTUS, Schiff says that he’s paraphrasing the president. Schiff made it clear that he was not quoting the president, but offering an interpretation of the transcript’s meaning. And for that, Trump is publicly speculating on arresting the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee for treason.

This, in the United States of America, in 2019.

-----------------------

Yep, but as pointed out, the USA and the Western (English) world — especially the USA, the UK and Australia, has lost its grip on information, fake and otherwise, turning a system of who said/she said/he said into pure gossip and finger pointing without proofs. And Trump is the master of crap, to which the Democrats are responding with undignified crap.

the CIA would be aware of this if it's true...

 

The case of Joe Biden should be investigated in Ukraine not only in connection with his corruption at Burisma Group, but also in connection with his participation in the coup of 2014.

According to the published transcript of the telephone conversation between Donald Trump and Vladimir Zelensky, the US President "asked" his Ukrainian counterpart to investigate into circumstances of the dismissal of the former Prosecutor General of Ukraine, Viktor Shokin. Shokin had investigated the activity of Burisma Group, whose directors included Hunter Biden - the son of Joe Biden, the current leader of the presidential campaign from the Democrats.

In the USA, Joe Biden is suspected of corruption in Ukraine, for the purpose of which he had used his official position. In particular, he used his position in the interests of his son, who had been introduced to the administration of Burisma Group in 2014 (a gas production company in Ukraine). According to the Hill, the former Prosecutor General of Ukraine, Yuri Lutsenko, (Shokin's successor) was ready to give the White House leverage against Biden. Lutsenko himself denies the existence of the case against Hunter Biden, however, he confirms that there were cases on the investigation into company CEO, Nikolay Zlochevsky.


Burisma Group was established by Zlochevsky in 2002. The company is registered to the Cyprus offshore company Brociti Investments Limited. In 2010, during the presidency of Viktor Yanukovych, Zlochevsky became the Minister of Ecology of Ukraine. He had big plans for the production of shale gas, including in the east of the country. However, in 2014, he left Ukraine after Shokin initiated several criminal cases against him on suspicion of tax evasion, money laundering and embezzlement of state funds.

The news about the appointment of Hunter Biden for a senior post at "Burisma" was made public a few weeks after his father, then Vice President of the United States Joe Biden, visited Kiev on April 22. Immediately, many assumed that Hunter Biden earned his position of a legal advisor at the Ukrainian company through good connections. Hunter Biden had worked at Burisma until 2019. His duties were to support the holding in cooperation with international organizations."

Victor Shokin, like Lutsenko, did not initiate any cases personally against Hunter Biden. Joe Biden, however, forced Shokin to resign, of which he testified in March 2016 at a meeting of the Foreign Policy Council. He must have had a motive for that - he did not want to lose what he had acquired through hard work, as well as all ensuing perspectives. In mid-2016, a court of Kiev seized 20 wells of the gas company ESCO-North, which was related to Zlochevsky. In September 2016, the court ordered the Office of the Prosecutor General to stop the search for Zlochevsky, which was done.


After Burisma paid $7.46 million in taxes and fines, the Office of the Prosecutor General closed the tax evasion case.  The case about the embezzlement of public resources - in fact, about the issuance of licenses, which Zlochevsky issued to himself (as a businessman minister) - was handed over to the National Administration of the Security of Ukraine, where it was subsequently closed as well. 

Based on the transcript of the conversation between Trump and Zelensky, the latter promised that the new Prosecutor General of Ukraine, Ruslan Ryaboshapka, would return to the investigation.

According to BuzzFeed and OCCRP corruption and organized crime investigation project, Hunter earned $3 million over several years of his work at Burisma. According to the Ukrainian media, the document available to the Prosecutor General's Office (the above-mentioned leverage) states that Zlochevsky allegedly offered US Secretary of State John Kerry and Vice President Joe Biden to distribute profits at Burisma. This happened in March of 2014. The money was allegedly paid to Biden's son and a friend of Kerry's adopted son, Devon Archer.

The political background of this case is obvious: if Trump has a scandal with Russia, then his rival Biden will have a scandal with Ukraine. Trump's people found Zlochevsky and his Burisma, they discovered the facts of Joe Biden's interference in Shokin's career, they discovered his nepotism and illegal enrichment of his son.

Nikolai Zlochevsky, according to Ukrainian sources, is alive and well. In the spring of 2019, he held the Fourth Energy Security Forum in Monte Carlo. He does not appear in Ukraine. On Monday, Vladimir Zelensky said that he would not investigate anything, because he was ordered so from abroad. Yet, there was no order - there was a request.

As  Oleg Soskin, a Ukrainian politician, economist, political scientist, said in an interview with Pravda.Ru, one should pay attention to Zlochevsky, but another aspect worthy of investigation is the allocation "of many billions to Ukraine owing to Joe Biden's efforts in the form of subventions, subsidies, technical assistance, as well as the provision of guarantees of the US government under the placement of Ukrainian Eurobonds." According to the economist, "there were about 30 issues of those government bonds, each worth a billion dollars." "Those were low premium securities - if I'm not mistaken, up to 2% per annum," - said Oleg Soskin.

"That is, Ukraine with its poor credit history, could never sell those securities to anyone, unless the American government acted as a guarantor," he said. According to the expert,  "the constant presence of Joe Biden during the uprising against Viktor Yanukovych deserves to be investigated into as well.

Yanukovych, Oleg Soskin said, agreed to a quiet transfer of power under European guarantees, and " suddenly everything was broken." "Clearly, neither Turchynov, nor Klitschko, nor Yatsenyuk would ever have broken their guarantees to Yanukovych, if they had not been given a free hand from Obama and Biden," said the analyst.

According to him, "it is obvious that the then US leadership was covering up the moment of turmoil." All this led to war and the loss of territories, the expert said.

In fact, they (Obama and Biden) conducted a "color revolution" in Ukraine, they were manipulating Poroshenko and others directly, they were supporting them financially through direct funding, and, accordingly, through guarantees for the issuance of Eurobonds. The center of the Ukrainian coup "was the Ukrainian Embassy in the United States headed by Ambassador (Valery) Chaly. There were meetings held there when Hillary Clinton's race was in full swing.

According to Oleg Soskin, the investigation of the Biden case in Ukraine will take place, because there is no other way out. However, it will happen only after President Zelensky is impeached. Zelensky speaks for the group that, apparently, is directly related to Biden. His group is against Trump, and they do not  want this investigation to start.  "I think that Igor Kolomoisky is involved too, but there is someone else, because Leonid Kuchma's comeback to politics was not incidental," concluded Oleg Soskin.

If this is true, no wonder the Dems are hopping mad... This is revealing their previous dirty games... But the CIA would have also been involved in the same dirty game... hence the "whistleblower(s)" from the CIA against Trump... At this stage, only the Russians may know the full extend of Biden's game in Ukraine, hence this article on this website.

 

 

slowly, biden jumper's coming undone...

House Democrats impeached President Trump for putting his own political fortunes ahead of the national interest in dealing with Ukraine. But it’s Joe Biden who should be on the hot seat for that.

Trump is criticized for a July 25 phone call, when he asked the president of Ukraine for help investigating what Biden did as vice president to get a prosecutor there fired. At the time, Biden’s son Hunter was on the payroll of a corrupt Ukrainian energy company, Burisma, which was targeted by authorities.

Democrats claim it was wrong to ask for the investigation; Trump’s defense lawyers say there was every reason to ask. The evidence backs up Team Trump.

It’s not just the $1 million a year Burisma paid Hunter, though he had no energy or Ukraine expertise. That’s what the defense team focused on, but it’s small potatoes.

The question is what did Burisma get in return? The Obama administration forked over $53 million in US taxpayer money between 2014 and 2016 to assist the Ukraine energy industry. The public should know how much Burisma and its related ventures may have gotten.

Biden should also have to answer for the $20 million in taxpayer-funded loans that went to his Delaware pal John Hynansky in 2012 to launch a luxury car dealership in Ukraine selling Porsches, Land Rovers and other high-ticket vehicles, none made in the United States.

Hynansky had made large donations to Biden’s campaigns. In 2015 he would loan $500,000 to Biden’s brother James, who was behind on mortgage payments and owed over $590,000 in back taxes.

Democrats and media allies are adamant that Joe Biden’s Ukraine dealings are irrelevant to Trump’s impeachment. Not so. If Biden used taxpayer money as his personal piggy bank to help his son and his car-dealer pal.

On that July 25 call, Trump did the right thing asking about Burisma, especially when $391 million more in taxpayer-funded aid to Ukraine was about to go out the door.

The chronology of the Bidens’ transactions raises serious questions:

  • April 15, 2014: Burisma sends Hunter’s business partner, Devon Archer, $112,000.
  • April 16, 2014: Archer visits Vice President Biden at the White House.
  • April 21, 2014: The veep arrives in Ukraine bearing millions in aid for the Ukraine energy industry.
  • May 12, 2014: Hunter Biden joins Burisma’s board.
  • February, 2015: Ukrainian authorities seize property of Burisma’s CEO and go after unpaid taxes.
  • March, 2016: Biden demands that Ukraine’s top prosecutor, Victor Shokin, be fired and threatens to hold up $1 billion in US loan guarantees.

Biden even bragged about telling the Ukrainians, “If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.” That’s the kind of quid pro quo Trump is accused of — only Biden did actually say it, and it’s on tape.

The Biden campaign claims the vice president demanded Shokin’s dismissal for being soft on corruption, and the media gladly parrot that claim. It defies common sense.

Though accounts vary about how aggressively Shokin investigated Burisma, Shokin himself is clear. In an e-mail to The Washington Post, he blamed Vice President Biden for getting him axed, saying Biden’s “motives” were “the activities of Hunter Biden, and the investigators on his tail.”

US Aid for International Development data show that the Obama administration sent $1.28 billion in aid to Ukraine in 2014-’16. Biden, the administration point person for Ukraine, should be held accountable for how the money was used.

Peter Schweizer’s new book “Profiles in Corruption” documents how Biden’s family and friends leveraged his position to cash in, with deals in China, Iraq, Kazakhstan and Latin America. Joe Biden’s suspect dealings in Ukraine were not out of character. The Biden motto appears to be that a family that “takes” together stays together.

Democrats insist claims of Biden wrongdoing are “discredited” and “without evidence.” That doesn’t pass the smell test.

Americans have seen the transcripts of Trump’s calls with the Ukrainians. Let’s see Biden’s call records with the Ukrainians.

If the senators decide to call witnesses, Joe Biden should be the first.

most corrupt...

As a judge stops the name of the "whistleblower" to be released in the Trump Impeachment case — we all know who he is, a CIA operative (read from top) — a French doco reveals the truth:

 

Former Ukrainian officials told a French journalist that President Petro Poroshenko was directly involved in corruption, and that Hunter Biden’s job at the gas company Burisma was a bribe to his father, the US vice president. 

US President Donald Trump is currently on trial in the Senate, having been impeached by the House over Democrat allegations that withholding military aid to Ukraine over corruption concerns amounted to an abuse of power. Former Ukrainian officials and anti-corruption activists, however, have testified that not only was there corruption involving Burisma, the natural gas firm tied to former vice president and Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden’s son, but that it went all the way to the top.

These revelations can be found in the third installment of the documentary series ‘UkraineGate: Inconvenient facts’, produced by the French investigative journalist Olivier Berruyer, founder of popular anti-corruption and economics blog Les Crises.

My friend Jules Letambour lets me know that Berruyer's name is very close to that of a fictitious fat copper in the San Antonio novels... The copper, a slob, is often an essential cog in the denouement, saving the situation, either by accident or by desire... Interesting.

remembering kennedy?...

 

by CJ Hopkins

 

I never thought I’d hear myself say this, but I’m a little worried about Donald Trump. I’m worried he may be on the verge of a sudden, major heart attack, or a stroke, or a fatal golfing accident.

Food poisoning is another possibility. Or he could overdose on prescription medication. A tanning bed mishap is not out of the question.

He could accidentally hang himself during autoerotic asphyxiation, or get shot by a lone-wolf white supremacist terrorist trying to start the RaHoWa. The Russians could spray him with that Novichok perfume.

There are any number of ways he could snuff it.

I don’t mean to sound alarmist, but the Resistance is running out of non-lethal options for removing Donald Trump from office. Here they are, in no particular order…

RESISTANCE NON-LETHAL OPTION NO. 1

Resistance Non-Lethal Option No. 1 is winning the 2020 election, which isn’t looking very promising. The Democratic Party is in shambles. According to the polls, their current front-runner is a senile, hair-sniffing, finger-sucking freak who never met a credit card company or a healthcare lobbyist he didn’t like, and who rivals even Donald Trump when it comes to incoherent babbling.

Yes, that’s right, folks, it’s “Smilin’ Joe” Biden, vanquisher of the razor-wielding, swimming-pool-gangster “Corn Pop” to the rescue! 

As far as I’ve been able to gather, the plan is for Joe to out-“crazy” Trump (and thus win back the “bull goose loony” demographic) by going completely off his medication and having a series of scary-looking petit mal seizures on national television.

That is, unless the impossible happens, and Biden is vanquished by Bernie Sanders (a/k/a “The Magic Socialist”), who Democratic Party bigwigs would sooner publicly immolate themselves than nominate, and who the corporate media are already accusing of being a lying, sexist. communist, crypto-Trump-loving, Jew-hating Jew.

Sanders, it seems, has gone totally “native.” 

He’s out there, in the heart of the American darkness, like a geriatric Colonel Kurz, operating without any decent restraint, totally beyond the pale of any acceptable human conduct. 

According to the latest reconnaissance, he is building another “revolutionary” army of fanatical, doped-up, hacky-sacking “socialists” that he will lead into the convention in July and deliver to Biden, or Elizabeth Warren, or whichever soulless corporate puppet the party honchos eventually nominate, and then obsequiously stump for them for the next five months. (Or, who knows, maybe Michael Bloomberg will put the Democrats out of their misery and just buy the party and nominate himself.)

The “Crush Bernie” movement is just getting started, but you can tell the Resistance isn’t screwing around. Hillary Clinton just officially launched her national “Nobody Likes Bernie” campaign at the star-studded 2020 Sundance Film Festival

Influential Jewish journalists like Bari Weiss and Jeffrey Goldberg, and Ronald Lauder’s newly-founded Anti-Semitism Accountability Project, have been Hitlerizing him, or, rather, Corbynizing him. 

Obama has promised to “stop him,” if necessary. 

MSNBC anchor Joy Reid brought on a professional “body language expert” to phrenologize Sanders “live” on the air … and, as I said, they’re just getting started.

In any event, no matter who they nominate, they have no chance of winning in November. 

How could they, given the total stranglehold the Russians now have on American democracy? 

As Adam Schiff just reminded everyone, unless Donald Trump is removed from office, “we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won,” because at any moment Putin could order Trump to pressure the Ukrainian president into investigating Biden’s son’s corruption by refusing to fund the Ukrainian military’s resistance to Putin’s secret plot to occupy the entire Ukraine and use it as a covert base from which to launch an all-out thermonuclear war against the United States (which Putin already controls through his puppet, Trump, and his network of nefarious Facebook bots, which, according to this expert on NPR, are already brainwashing gullible Black people into voting for Bernie Sanders this time, or at least refusing to vote for Biden, like they refused to vote for Hillary last time … which, OK, I know, that sounds kind of racist, but we’re talking NPR here, folks. These people aren’t racists. They’re liberals!)

OK, I got a little lost there … the point is, if the election goes ahead, and Trump doesn’t have an embolism or something, odds are, we’re looking at four more years of Putin-Nazi occupation. Which brings us to …

NON-LETHAL OPTION NO. 2

Resistance Non-Lethal Option No. 2 is, of course, the current impeachment circus. I don’t even know where to start with this one.

After three and a half years of corporate-media-manufactured mass hysteria and Intelligence Community propaganda designed to convince the American public that Donald Trump is a “Russian asset” (and possibly Putin’s homosexual lover) and also literally the Resurrection of Hitler, the Democrats are trying to impeach the man for something that most Americans either (a) believe is common practice among members of the political class, (b) don’t entirely understand, or (c) do, but don’t give a shit about.

Seriously, it’s like they held a contest to see if anyone could think of something that would out-anticlimax the Mueller report, and this is what the winner came up with … an over-acted, sanctimonious snooze-fest, the stakes of which could not possibly be lower. 

Sure, the corporate media are doing their best to cover every twist and turn of the “drama” as if the fate of democracy were hanging in the balance, but everybody knows it’s a joke … or, all right, almost everybody.

So we’re down to …

NON-LETHAL OPTION NO. 3

Resistance Non-Lethal Option No. 3 is to whip up so much mass hysteria over “white supremacist terrorism,” “the sudden resurgence of anti-Semitism,” “the imminent Putin-Nazi Apocalypse” (which has been imminent since the summer of 2016), and other iterations of Hitler hysteria, that people can’t really even think anymore, and will join the Resistance and pour into the streets in their millions and demand Trump resign. 

The Resistance has been at this for over three years now, i.e., casting the neo-Nazi subculture that has always been part of the political landscape as a powerful, worldwide fascist movement that is going to rise up any minute and Hitlerize the entire Western world.

It isn’t working. People aren’t buying it. OK, sure, some liberals are still buying it. But most people aren’t, not anymore.

For example, the hysteria leading up to the recent gun rights rally in Richmond, which according to the corporate media had been infiltrated by “Nazi terrorists” who were plotting to publicly mass murder each other in a desperate attempt to finally launch the “Boogaloo,” or the “RaHoWa” … or whatever.

Apparently, a few days before the rally, the FBI got some neo-Nazis to agree to conspire to murder some people and then violently overthrow the U.S. government with their arsenal of homemade machine guns. 

These neo-Nazi masterminds were allegedly members of “the Base,” i.e., one of these little neo-Nazi clubs that we’re all supposed to live in mortal fear of now … this one, as it turns out, run by a former (and possibly current) “security contractor.”

The governor declared a state of emergency. Anti-Terror forces were put on alert. A “no-fly zone” was implemented, presumably to prevent the Russians from dropping a division of Putin-Nazi paratroopers onto the lawn of the Capitol. The corporate media warned that it was probably going to be a bloodbath.

Well, the day came and went, and no Boogaloo. No bloodbath. No Putin-Nazi Apocalypse. Just a lot of gun owners and militia types parading around with their guns and gear. Antifa didn’t even show up this time … or, rather, the few “anti-fascists” that did were also armed and supporting the rally.

And that’s the problem with Non-Lethal Option No. 3 … there are only so many times you can have the corporate media scream, “THE NAZIS ARE COMING!” and then not produce any actual Nazis. The Resistance has exceeded that allotment.

Which brings me back to where I started, and my concerns about Donald Trump, and his health, and the assorted tragic accidents that could befall him before we get to November. Because, unless you believe that the Intelligence Community (and the transnational empire it is part and parcel of) is prepared to sit by and allow Donald Trump to serve another four years as president … well, I wouldn’t be sharing any Diet Cokes or riding in any motorcades with him.

I don’t know, maybe I’ve been reading too much of that “conspiracy theory” stuff on the Internet, but Senator Schumer’s warning to Trump back in 2017 keeps playing in my head:

Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”

Relax, folks. I’m just kidding, of course. The Intelligence Community would never dream of doing anything … you know, illegal. 

The Community doesn’t assassinate people, and commit all sorts of other atrocities.

That’s just a thing they do in the movies. 

In reality, they would never assassinate a president, especially not one they had been telling everyone is a “Russian asset,” and “literally Hitler,” and a “traitor,” and a “dictator,” for over three years. OK, those are pretty harsh words, but they probably don’t really mean all that stuff. Odds are, they’re just horsing around. They’re a notorious bunch of jokesters, those CIA guys.

Released by Ukrainian MP Andrii Derkach, the recording, allegedly from August 19, 2016, begins with ‘Biden’ expressing frustration over “Ukrainian intelligence operations” which occurred earlier that month in Crimea.

In the new recording, the alleged Biden reminds the alleged Poroshenko that the United States had previously disapproved of a Ukrainian plan to “sabotage military targets inside Russian territory.”

He then chides Poroshenko, stressing that “military and sabotage operations” should not be used against Moscow.

“Every time the CIA screws up in the United States, it’s the president’s responsibility. Period,” Biden says. 

“I fully understand that Joe,” replies Poroshenko, adding that he has ordered a “very thorough investigation” into the matter. The Ukrainian president then insinuates that the “operation” had not been carried out with his approval or knowledge
