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.

Imagine the ancient trick to test your loyalty... Your are exclusively given secret information, but no access to the original truth. Etc...

 

 

Just exploring all the possibilities of the trick.

 

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."

Getting dirty...

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.
