still bleeding from you know where...

Hillary Clinton is publicly pushing a barrow of garbage against some Democrat contenders for the 2020 Presidency. Who knows why. Well, we know. She wants the US Democrats to still be under the thumb of the rich-otocrats who control the deep state to prevent "socialism" taking over the USA ... But all is not as it seems...

 

.....

 

From Edward Curtin

 

A few weeks ago I had a terrifying nightmare, so gruesome was it that I awoke screaming and had to run to the bathroom to vomit in the toilet. In this dark horror show, I was carving a pumpkin for Halloween.

The cap came off easily and I disemboweled the slimy interior quickly, but as I did, I felt a strange sensation on my hand, as if a tongue were biting it. 

When I was finishing carving the face, however, the trouble really started.

The pumpkin head came alive as the eyes and mouth moved and then it started speaking in a voice that was familiar but one I couldn’t place. Blond hair started sprouting from its head as it started shrieking and bouncing on the table in an hysterical manner. 

I jumped back in fear and trembling as it started cackling, “I running, I running.”

Blood ran from between the carved teeth and the blue eyes pulsated with the mania of a serial killer in a horror movie.

I awoke with a scream when I realized it was Hillary Clinton. 

So hideous was this night terror that I kept it to myself. But a week later when the next Democratic pseudo-debate was being promoted, I said to my wife that something told me that Hillary Clinton would be the Democratic nominee and the debates were a sideshow. 

She said she thought that would never happen and that Clinton was now hated and done for. 

I disagreed without recounting my nightmare because to describe it at that point would have induced more retching at the thought of the night monster.

Then this past week during the Democratic debate, the courageous Tulsi Gabbard put the lie to the murderous militarism of U.S. foreign policy and its regime change operations with its use of American supported terrorists in Syria and throughout the world.

She calmly and eloquently denounced the militarist positions of the other candidates standing beside her, as they listened disquieted and disturbed to a patriotic American speaking truth that they dare not even think, so bought and sold are they. 

She was a woman alone among a cast of sycophants denouncing the murderous policies carried out by presidents Democratic and Republican and foisted on the American people through a vast network of propaganda, appealing to their worst instincts. 

It was a stunning few minutes, for it is so rare, almost unheard of, for a politician to tell Americans the brutal truth about their government.

From the Murdoch WSJ:

 

Hillary Is a Russian Asset

Democrats trying to revive ‘collusion’ must want Trump back in the White House.

 

...

 

At some point, reality has to be acknowledged. Mr. Trump was innocent, the evidence was fabricated by his opponents, and the press and intelligence agencies in some sense allowed themselves to be party to this. 

A new book by James Stewart provides what might be called the official story, with official characters like Mr. Comey giving their official two-dimensional rationalizations. Missing is everything interesting: The torrent of illegal leaks from many of these same people defaming the incoming Trump administration. The ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee claiming to have “more than circumstantial evidence” of a Trump-Russia conspiracy. The top leaders of the Obama intelligence agencies going on television to declare that Vladimir Putin was Mr. Trump’s “case officer” and had placed him in the White House.

Democrats may be oblivious but much of the country noticed the self-jujitsu by which Mr. Trump’s enemies have turned Mr. Trump’s vices into their own, with their sleazy and self-defeating approach to opposing him. 

Democrats would help themselves now by shutting Mrs. Clinton up. Her podcast with campaign guru David Plouffe is becoming famous for all the wrong reasons. Mrs. Clinton clearly wills another loss for her party at the presidential level, which she is eager to blame on assorted Russian “assets” (i.e., everybody in the U.S. political system, including fellow Democrats, she finds inconvenient), as a way to exculpate herself for losing to Donald Trump.

tulsi wants to force everyone to practice yoga...

putin

So, it looks like that’s it for America, folks. Putin has gone and done it again. He and his conspiracy of Putin-Nazis have “hacked,” or “influenced,” or “meddled in” our democracy. Unless Admiral Bill McRaven and his special ops cronies can ginny up a last-minute military coup, it’s four more years of the Trumpian Reich, Russian soldiers patrolling the streets, martial law, concentration camps, gigantic banners with the faces of Trump and Putin hanging in the football stadiums, mandatory Sieg-heiling in the public schools, National Vodka-for-Breakfast Day, death’s heads, babushkas, the whole nine yards.

We probably should have seen this coming.

That’s right, as I’m sure you are aware by now, president-in-exile Hillary Clinton has discovered Putin’s diabolical plot to steal the presidency from Elizabeth Warren, or Biden, or whichever establishment puppet makes it out of the Democratic primaries. Speaking to former Obama adviser and erstwhile partner at AKPD Message and Media David Plouffe, Clinton revealed how the godless Rooskies intend to subvert democracy this time:

I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate.”

She was referring, of course, to Tulsi Gabbard, sitting Democratic Member of Congress, decorated Major in the Army National Guard, and long shot 2020 presidential candidate.

Apparently, Gabbard (who reliable anonymous sources in the Intelligence Community have confirmed is a member of some kind of treasonous, Samoan-Hindu, Assad-worshipping cult that wants to force everyone to practice yoga) has been undergoing Russian “grooming” at a compound in an undisclosed location that is probably in the basement of Mar-a-Lago, or on Sublevel 168 of Trump Tower.

In any event, wherever Gabbard is being surreptitiously “groomed” (presumably by someone resembling Lotte Lenya in From Russia With Love), the plan (i.e., Putin’s plan) is to have her lose in the Democratic primaries, then run as a third-party “spoiler” candidate, stealing votes from Warren or Biden, exactly as Jill Stein (who, according to Clinton, is also “totally a Russian asset”) stole them from Clinton back in 2016, allowing Putin to install Donald Trump (who, according to Clinton, is still being blackmailed by the FSB with that “kompromat” pee-tape) in the White House, where she so clearly belongs.

Clinton’s comments came on the heels of a preparatory smear-piece in The New York TimesWhat, Exactly, Is Tulsi Gabbard Up To?, which reported at length on how Gabbard has been “injecting chaos” into the Democratic primaries. Professional “disinformation experts” supplied The Times with convincing evidence (i.e., unfounded hearsay and innuendo) of “suspicious activity” surrounding Gabbard’s campaign.

Former Clinton-aide Laura Rosenberger (who also just happens to be the Director of the Alliance for Securing Democracy, “a bipartisan transatlantic national security advocacy group” comprised of former Intelligence Community and U.S. State Department officials, and publisher of the Hamilton 68 dashboard) sees Gabbard as a potentially useful vector for Russian efforts to sow division.

The Times piece goes on to list an assortment of unsavory, extremist, white supremacist, horrible, neo-Nazi-type persons that Tulsi Gabbard has nothing to do with, but which Hillary Clinton, the Intelligence Community, The Times, and the rest of the corporate media would like you to mentally associate her with. Richard Spencer, David Duke, Steve Bannon, Mike Cernovich, Tucker Carlson, and so on. Neo-Nazi sites like the Daily Stormer. 4chan, where, according to The New York Times, neo-Nazis like to “call her Mommy.”

In keeping with professional journalistic ethics, The Times also reached out to experts on fascism, fascist terrorism, terrorist fascism, fascist-adjacent Assad-apologism, Hitlerism, horrorism, Russia, and so on, to confirm Gabbard’s guilt-by-association with the people The Times had just associated her with.

Brian Levin, Director of the CSU Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, confirmed that Gabbard has “the seal of approval” within goose-stepping, Hitler-loving, neo-Nazi circles. 

The Alliance for Securing Democracy (yes, the one from the a few paragraphs ago) conducted an “independent analysis” which confirmed that RT (“the Kremlin-backed news agency”) had mentioned Gabbard far more often than the Western corporate media (which isn’t backed by anyone, and is totally unbiased and independent, despite the fact that most of it is owned by a handful of powerful global corporations, and at least one CIA-affiliated oligarch). Oh, and Hawaii State Senator Kai Kahele, who is challenging Gabbard for her seat in Congress, agreed with The Times that Gabbard’s support from Jew-hating, racist Putin-Nazis might be a potential liability.

trump hate protecting countries that don't like the USA...

President Trump spent ten minutes at a press conference Wednesday with the Italian President explaining his reasoning for withdrawing U.S. troops from Syria and clarifying his comment from earlier that day that the Kurds are "no angels."

"I say why are we protecting Syria's land? Assad's not a friend of ours. Why are we protecting their land? And is Syria also has a relationship with the Kurds, who, by the way, are no angels, okay? Who is an angel? There are too many around. But Syria has a relationship with the Kurds, so they'll come in for their border and they'll fight," Trump said. "Syria doesn't want Turkey to take its land. I can understand that. But what does that have to do with the United States of America if they're fighting over Syria's land?"

"Russia, Iran, Syria, and to maybe a slightly lesser extent, Turkey, they all hate ISIS as much as we do. And it's their part of the world. We're 7,000 miles away. I campaigned on bringing our soldiers back home, and that's what I'm doing."

Later he said: "You know, we're in many countries, many, many countries. I--I'm embarrassed to tell you how many. I know the exact number, but I'm embarrassed to say it because it's so foolish. We're in countries--we're protecting countries that don't even like us. They take advantage of us. They don't pay; nothing."

"So you have Syria and you have Turkey they are going to argue it out. Maybe they're going to fight it out but our men aren't going to get killed over it. And just one other thing--they've been fighting for hundreds of years. This has been going on for hundreds of years," he concluded. 

 


QUESTION: Thank you, Mr. President. I wanted to ask about Turkey. Did President Erdogan's decisions surprise you? And if they did not surprise you, would you make the same decision as you made before in removing U.S. forces?

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: No, President Erdogan's decision didn't surprise me because he's wanted to do that for a long time. He's been building up troops on the border with Syria for long time, as you know. Our soldiers are mostly gone from the area. We only had 26, 28, but under 50. We think it's probably 28, but under 50 soldiers and--which is a very tiny force.

And it didn't surprise me at all. This is a--they've been warring for many years. It's unnatural for us, but it's sort of natural for them. They fight and they fight long and they fight hard, and they been fighting Syria for a long time and on the border. That's the border with Syria.

And I say why are we protecting Syria's land? Assad's not a friend of ours. Why are we protecting their land? And is Syria also has a relationship with the Kurds, who, by the way, are no angels, okay? Who is an angel? There are too many around. But Syria has a relationship with the Kurds, so they'll come in for their border and they'll fight.

They may bring partners in. They could bring Russia in. And I say welcome to it. Russia went into Afghanistan when it was the Soviet Union, and they became Russia, became a much smaller country because of Afghanistan. You can overextend. You can do a lot of things. But frankly, if Russia is going to help in protecting the Kurds, that's a good thing, not a bad thing.

But it would be led by Syria. And Syria doesn't want Turkey to take its land. I can understand that. But what does that have to do with the United States of America if they're fighting over Syria's land? Are we supposed to fight a NATO member in order that Syria, who is not our friend, keeps their land? I don't think so.

But Syria does have a relationship with the Kurds. The thing that's common is that everybody hates ISIS. Now, the PKK, which is a part of the Kurds, as you know, is probably worse at terror and more of a terrorist threat in many ways than ISIS. So it's a very semi-complicated--not too complicated if you're smart. But it's a semi-complicated problem, and I think it's a problem that we have a very nicely under control.

We have two countries wanting their land. We have one country that once land perhaps that doesn't belong to them because they want to have a--a 22 mile strip of--they call it freedom. They called it a lot of things. They want to get terrorists out. You have another country that says you can have our land. And they're going to have to work that out.

Now, with that being said, Vice President Mike Pence is going there. You'll be leaving either late tonight or tomorrow. And he was going to leave yesterday but they have to have certain security done. He's a very important man in our country. And he'll be leaving with Secretary of State Pompeo. We already have representatives they're negotiating with Turkey.

We've put massive sanctions on Turkey and we have additional sanctions on Turkey. And when I ran, I ran on a basis we're going to bring our great soldiers back home where they belong. We don't have to fight these endless wars. We're bringing them back home. That's what I've won on.

And some people, whether it's--you call it the military-industrial complex or--or beyond that, they'd like me to stay. One of the problems I have and one of--for instance, with the witch hunt, you have people that want me to stay.

They want me to fight forever. And they do very well fighting. That's what they want to do, fight. A lot of companies want to fight because they make their weapons based on fighting, not based on peace. And they take care of a lot of people.

I want to bring our soldiers back home. We're not a police force. We're a fighting force. We're the greatest fighting force ever. I spent $2.5 trillion over the last almost three years rebuilding our military. When I took it over, it was a mess. It was an absolute mess. It was totally depleted. You know that. A lot of people know that. Honest people all know that.

When I was thinking about having to do something, one of our generals came in to see me and he said, sir, we don't have ammunition. I said that's a terrible thing you just said. He said we don't have ammunition. Now we have more ammunition that we've ever had. We have more missiles. We have more rockets. Our nuclear has been totally updated and, in some cases, new. Hopefully to God we never have to use it but we have the most powerful nuclear base by far in the world.

And we have things that we never had before. We have a great modern military, but that doesn't mean we're going to waste it. It doesn't mean we're going to depleted like we did before with these crazy endless wars.

So, Turkey and Syria will hopefully work it out between themselves. Hopefully, ISIS will be guarded. I told--I spoke with, as you know, a wonderful man yesterday, a general from the Kurds. You all know who I'm talking about. Some of you have seen the letter that I put out to Erdogan. I gave it to him, President Erdogan. And some of you have seen it.

With the general, I said, listen, don't open those doors and let them out just to create more havoc so that we come in, because some of those doors were just opened. Let's create some havoc and some political exposure for the president of the United States.

We were the ones that contact--we were the ones that got ISIS. We're the ones that took care of it, specifically me, because I'm the one that gave the order. Because when I came in, under President Obama ISIS was a disaster all over that area. I was the one that got them. We were the ones that captured them.

And I will say this, that Russia, Iran, Syria, and to maybe a slightly lesser extent, Turkey, they all hate ISIS as much as we do. And it's their part of the world. We're 7,000 miles away. I campaigned on bringing our soldiers back home, and that's what I'm doing. That includes other places too, many other places.

Statutorily, it takes a period of time. Diplomatically, takes a period of time. But, you know, we're in many countries, many, many countries. I--I'm embarrassed to tell you how many. I know the exact number, but I'm embarrassed to say it because it's so foolish. We're in countries--we're protecting countries that don't even like us. They take advantage of us. They don't pay; nothing.

You probably saw--some of you wrote and covered the fact that we're sending some additional troops to Saudi Arabia. That's true. And I appreciate the fact that I negotiated for a short period of time, a matter of minutes, with Saudi Arabia, and they've agreed to pay for the full cost of all of that deployment and more, much more.

They're a very rich country. They should be paying, and so should many other countries be paying if they want this kind of protection. Same thing with NATO. We're at 4 percent and other countries are at 1 percent. And certainly a European country benefits much more than we do with NATO.

I mean, it's there for a reason. And perhaps we benefit, but not nearly as much as the European countries. Some people say we don't benefit at all. We put ourselves in harm's way, but we do that for Europe but then they treat us badly on trade; not fair.

So, I would say that we're in a great position. We're doing what I said. We have two countries that are going to argue over their border. Hopefully, they'll work it out. We're going to try and work it out. I think our vice president, who's a very capable man, will do well tomorrow he is going to meet with President Erdogan. President Erdogan said he wouldn't meet with anybody and he took that back just a little while ago and he said, no I will. And, I think they'll have a successful meeting. If they don't the sanctions and tariffs and other things we are doing and will do are doing to Turkey will be devastating to Turkey's economy. I got past the bunts at home. Nobody else could do it. The previous administration tried very hard. They were unable to do it. I did it very quickly. And, let's see what happens but I think we will be successful. But we got to get out of the endless wars we have to bring our troops back home.

I go to Walter Reed and I gave our purple hearts just did it on Friday. I see the--the incredible soldiers coming home to Dover, coming home in a coffin on areas that we have nothing to do with, we have nothing to do with. And it's heartbreaking. I sign letters all the time to parents whose son was shot in different places in the Middle East, mostly. It's very heartbreaking to see. Very heartbreaking.

So, I've said it and it's through strength not through weakness. Much harder to do what I'm doing. I could be like all of these others oh just leave them there, leave them there. No, I can't do it. Much easier for me probably politically better for me just to say we will leave a lot of people there and we will fight they don't even know what they are fighting for. It's much more difficult politically. It's not politically expedient it's just the opposite. And, I have people even on my side they want to fight. I say, why are we fighting? I don't know. They don't' even know.

So you have Syria and you have Turkey they are going to argue it out. Maybe they're going to fight it out but our men aren't going to get killed over it. And just one other thing--they've been fighting for hundreds of years. This has been going on for hundreds of years.

authoritarian leadership...

As Russia enters its 20th year under the authoritarian leadership of Vladimir Putin, St Petersburg's vegan anarchist community thrives. Hated by the far right and out of tune with Russia's prevailing nationalist mood, the activists have created a version of what their ideal society would look like - and they're promoting this vision with delicious food. Could they be changing attitudes among other young Russians?

 

Here we see an article that, if my maths are correct, follows seven (Russian) people who are going to revolutionise Putin's country into a vegan freedom paradise ... As interesting as what some people do, one can smell a bit of "propaganda" against the authoritarian leadership of Vladimir Putin, from the BBC...

authoritarian populist...

In a recent interview Malcolm Turnbull raised the possibility that these days many so-called "conservatives" in the Liberal Party might be better described as "authoritarian populists".

It would be easy to dismiss his comments as being those of a bitter former leader. But maybe Turnbull has a point, and perhaps it might even be applied more broadly to the Morrison Government.

Although the term "authoritarian populism" is often associated with far-right parties, it has also been used to describe mainstream governments, such as those of Margaret Thatcher (1979-1990). Thatcherite populist rhetoric mobilised the people against big government and elite special interests, which was combined with authoritarian measures such as increased policing of ethnic minorities and militant unions.

Authoritarian populist is a term now sometimes applied to Donald Trump. So it is well worth asking whether the Morrison Government also has some authoritarian populist tendencies.

another NYT barrow of usual turds...

The New York Times has spun a tale of Russian treachery based on its usual anonymous sources. Though the Russian Foreign Ministry stepped in to correct the record, the paper didn’t let facts get in the way of a good story.

According to the Times, the debacle kicked off in August, when Russian officials delayed a sick American envoy from leaving Moscow for treatment, part of a Cold War-style “harassment campaign” against US diplomats.

The man in question, a military attache at the American embassy in Moscow, fell ill and needed evacuation to Germany for hospital treatment. According to the NYT, his plane was delayed “for hours for no apparent reason,” despite protests from embassy officials and the State Department in Washington.

The story ticks all the ‘Russiagate’ boxes. Neither the State Department or the Pentagon would give details of the incident, so anonymous “officials” were quoted instead. The paper also fitted the story into a wider anti-Russia conspiracy, calling it “the latest episode of a long-running campaign of harassment against American diplomats in Russia.”

Even the newspaper’s subhead proclaimed that “Russian intimidation of American officials has reached levels unseen since the Cold War.” Evidently, delayed flights are comparable to the world’s biggest superpowers threatening each other with nuclear war.

A bold statement, were it true. In a response to the Times, sent before publication but selectively clipped, the Russian Foreign Ministry explained that five and a half hours before the attache’s flight, the airline announced a one hour delay. Upon arrival at the airport, the sick man’s entourage were fast-tracked through security, and were then found to have the wrong papers, due to an error with their earlier charter flight.

The paper mix up – which had the entourage identified as crew instead of passengers – was resolved in 20 minutes, and the flight took off five minutes before its scheduled departure time.

Little of this official explanation was included in the story, and Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova again decried the article on Sunday, calling it “fake news,” and “a scandal; a forgery in its purest form.”

And of course, a good Russia yarn wouldn’t be complete without some conspiracy-peddling from former US ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul.

“When I was ambassador, we felt like we were under siege all the time,” McFaul told the Times. He said that delaying a medical flight would be “the kind of classic harassment that for many years now, our people have been putting up with. It’s inexcusable, it’s horrible.”

This is the same Michael McFaul who once compared Russians purchasing Facebook ads in the runup to the 2016 election to the 9/11 attacks, warned American tourists to steer clear of Russia, in case they be jailed for spying, and penned a research paper in 2005 advocating American-led regime change in Moscow. Anti-Russia protestations are also big money for McFaul, who wrote a book lambasting Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin last year, while ‘Russiagate’ hysteria was at its height.
