Anonymous sources and the guys and gals who made the Iraq war a reality are now claiming that the Kremlin is at it again! — Strategic Culture

Posted by M. C. on February 28, 2020

Nuland is perhaps best known for her role in spending $5 billion in U.S.
taxpayer money to overthrow the legitimate government of Ukraine. She
is married to leading neoconservative Robert Kagan, which Sanger fails
to mention, and is currently a nonresident fellow at the liberal
interventionist Brookings Institution. She also works at former Clinton
Secretary of State Madeleine Albright’s consultancy, presumably for the
Benjamins. Albright, one might recall, thought that killing 500,000
Iraqi children through U.S. sanctions was “worth it.”

Those hapless individuals who run the United States are again slipping into a fantasy world where Americans are besieged by imaginary threats coming from both inside and outside the country. Of course, it is particularly convenient to warn of foreign threats, as it makes the people in government seem relevant and needed, but one might recommend that the tune be changed as it is getting a bit boring. After all, there are only so many hours in the day and Russian President Vladimir Putin must pause occasionally to eat or sleep, so the plotting to destroy American democracy must be on hold at least some of the time.

Yes, anonymous sources and the guys and gals who made the Iraq war a reality are now claiming that the Kremlin is at it again! Hints over the past year that Putin might try to replay 2016 in 2020 only do it better this time have now been confirmed! Per one news report the enemy is already at the gates: “U.S. intelligence officials told lawmakers last week that Russia is interfering in the 2020 election campaign by aiming to cast doubt on the integrity of the vote and boost President Donald Trump’s re-election.”

And there’s more! In a New York Times article headlined “Same Goal, Different Playbook: Why Russia Would Support Trump and Sanders: Vladimir Putin is eager both to take the sheen off U.S. democracy and for a counterpart who is less likely to challenge his territorial and nuclear ambitions,” it was revealed that the Kremlin is intending to also help Bernie Sanders, so whichever way the election goes they win.

According to the Times Bernie has been “warn[ed]… of evidence that he is the Russian president’s favorite Democrat.” The article then goes on to explain, relying on its anonymous sources, that “…to the intelligence analysts and outside experts who have spent the past three years dissecting Russian motives in the 2016 election, and who tried to limit the effect of Moscow’s meddling in the 2018 midterms, what is unfolding in 2020 makes perfect sense. Mr. Trump and Mr. Sanders represent the most divergent ends of their respective parties, and both are backed by supporters known more for their passion than their policy rigor, which makes them ripe for exploitation by Russian trolls, disinformation specialists and hackers for hire seeking to widen divisions in American society.”

The Times article was written by David Sanger, the paper’s venerable national security correspondent. He is reliably wedded to Establishment views of the Russian threat, as is his newspaper, and strikes rock bottom in his assessment when he cites none other than “Victoria Nuland, who in a long diplomatic career had served both Republican and Democratic administrations, and had her phone calls intercepted and broadcast by Russian intelligence services.” Nuland, clearly the victim of a nefarious Russian intelligence operation that recorded her saying “fuck the EU,” opined that “Any figures that radicalize politics and do harm to center views and unity in the United States are good for Putin’s Russia.” Nuland is perhaps best known for her role in spending $5 billion in U.S. taxpayer money to overthrow the legitimate government of Ukraine. She is married to leading neoconservative Robert Kagan, which Sanger fails to mention, and is currently a nonresident fellow at the liberal interventionist Brookings Institution. She also works at former Clinton Secretary of State Madeleine Albright’s consultancy, presumably for the Benjamins. Albright, one might recall, thought that killing 500,000 Iraqi children through U.S. sanctions was “worth it.”

Given the fact that Russia will have very limited resources in their effort to corrupt American democracy, which is, by the way, doing a very good job of self-destruction without any outside help, how exactly will they do it? Sanger explains “As they focus on evading more vigilant government agencies and technology companies trying to identify and counter malicious online activity, the Russians are boring into Iranian cyberoffense units, apparently so that they can initiate attacks that look as if they originate in Iran — which itself has shown interest in messing with the American electoral process… And, in one of the most effective twists, they are feeding disinformation to unsuspecting Americans on Facebook and other social media. By seeding conspiracy theories and baseless claims on the platforms, Russians hope everyday Americans will retransmit those falsehoods from their own accounts. That is an attempt to elude Facebook’s efforts to remove disinformation, which it can do more easily when it flags ‘inauthentic activity,’ like Russians posing as Americans. It is much harder to ban the words of real Americans, who may be parroting a Russian story line, even unintentionally.”

So those wily Russians are making themselves look like Iranians and they are planning on “feeding disinformation” to “unsuspecting Americans” consisting of “conspiracy theories” and “baseless claims.” Sounds like a plan to me as the various occupants of the White House and Congress have been doing exactly that for the past twenty years. That we had a national election in 2016 in which a reality television personality ran against an unindicted criminal would seem to indicate that the effort to brainwash the American people has already been successful.

The usual bottom feeders are also piling on to the Russian interference story. Jane Harman, former congresswoman who once colluded with Israeli intelligence to lobby the Department of Justice to drop criminal charges against two employees of AIPAC in exchange for Israel’s support to make her chair of the House Intelligence Committee, warns “How dangerous it would be if we lose the tip of the spear against those who would destroy us.”

Former CIA Director John Brennan also has something to say. He is “very disturbed” by his conviction that Russia is actively meddling in the 2020 campaign in support of President Trump. He said “We are now in a full-blown national security crisis. By trying to prevent the flow of intelligence to Congress, Trump is abetting a Russian covert operation to keep him in office for Moscow’s interests, not America’s.” Brennan is best known for having orchestrated the illegal campaign to vilify Trump and his associates prior to, during and after the 2016 election. He also participated in a weekly meeting with Barack Obama where he and the president would add and remove names from a “kill list” of U.S. citizens residing overseas. He and his boss should both be in prison, but they are instead fêted as American patriots. Go figure.

Time to take a step back from the developing panic. As usual, the U.S. government intelligence agencies have produced no actual evidence that Moscow is up to anything, and there are already reports that the Office of National Intelligence briefer “overstated” her case against the Kremlin in her briefing of the House Intelligence Committee. Sure, the Russians have an interest in an American election and will favor candidates like Trump and Sanders that are not outright hostile to them, but to claim as the NY Times does that Russia has incompatible “territorial and nuclear interests” is a stretch. And yes, Moscow will definitely use its available intelligence resources to monitor the nomination and election process while also clandestinely doing what it can to improve the chances of those individuals they approve of. That is what intelligence agencies do.

In American Establishment groupthink there is one standard for what Washington does and quite a different standard for everyone else. Does it shock any American to know that the United States has interfered in scores of elections all over the world ever since the Second World War, to include those in places like France and Italy well into the 1980s? And in somewhat more kinetic covert actions, actually removing Mohammed Mossadeq in Iran, Salvador Allende in Chile, Jacobo Arbenz in Guatemala and Mohamed Morsi in Egypt just for starters, not even considering the multiple plots to kill Fidel Castro. And it continues to do so today openly in places like Iran and Venezuela while also claiming hypocritically that the U.S. is “exceptional” and also a “force for good.” That anyone should be genuinely worrying about Russian proxies buying and distributing a couple of hundred thousands of dollars’ worth of ads in an election in which many billions of dollars’ worth of propaganda will be on the table is ridiculous. It is time to stop blaming Russia for the failure of America’s ruling class to provide an honest and accountable government and one that does not go around the world looking for trouble. That is what the 2020 election should really be all about.

The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity : US diplomats act like imperial governors riding roughshod over sovereignty of national governments

Posted by M. C. on January 14, 2020

What few people knew at the time was that such levels of control over the composition of foreign governments had become standard practice for US embassies all over the world.

More shocking than Nuland’s bad language, however, was what the conversation was about. The US government officials were discussing how to put their men into power in Ukraine – which of the three then opposition factions would dominate, who would take the lead (Arseniy Yatsenyuk) and who would be excluded (Vladimir Klitschko).

Yats is the guy…Fuck the EU. That is US Ukrainian foreign policy.

Nuland: Good. I don’t think Klitsch should go into the government. I don’t think it’s necessary, I don’t think it’s a good idea.

Fake You Victoria

Whether you call such criticism “propaganda” or “dissent,” it is absurd to blame it all on Russia. When it comes to “destabilizing people’s trust in institutions,” the E.U. — especially with its inept handling of the Great Recession and its clumsy response to the Syrian refugee crisis — is doing a bang-up job on its own without Russian help.

US Foreign Policy-Drop In And See What Condition Is Our Condition In

Posted by M. C. on August 11, 2016

Have you ever stopped to think what makes up US foreign policy? What have Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and their antecedents wrought?

The main US foreign policy tools for winning hearts and minds include bribery, intimidation and hellfire missiles. Not a lot has changed.

In the Middle East we create an atmosphere that breeds dozens of terrorist groups we don’t understand then pay, train and equip them all to fight each other. We do Islamists a favor by upending Middle Eastern countries so they can walk in and take over, we try two or three times if we have to. We team up and fund Sunnis who attack(ed) us to fight Shias that haven’t attacked us. We never mention 9/11 and Saudi Arabia in the same day.

The EU and NATO policy is fund their defense and require them to spend their ill gotten US taxpayer dollars on US armament ‘upgrades’. You have to keep up to snuff if you are going to run with the big boys. As a bonus the MI Complex keeps campaign coffers well fed.

Central and South America, Southern Europe/Asia, Africa and far East Asian countries and other assorted minions are encouraged to take our money, do what we say, not go pinko and not speak kindly to Russia and China.

Pacific (Lake USA) countries are told to accept US money, troops, bases and missiles as they will be the first to be crushed by China and North Korea whom the US is economically and militarily aggravating. As is the case with Eastern Europe and Russia.

Uppity commies that complain when we sail warships up to their shores need to be reminded who is master.

Pay Israel whatever they demand, do whatever they demand, do not ask them to help fight ISIS and ignore their partnership with Saudi Arabia in funding Sunni terrorists. Do NOT ‘Remember the Liberty’.

Any son of bitch that robs, rapes, murders, tortures, gets rich off US tax payers and selling drugs gets a free pass if he is OUR son of a bitch.

Get military bases established anywhere and everywhere.

If any miscreants (excluding Israeli or SA miscreants) fail to obey they can expect a ‘democracy’ advocating NGO, Gladio and/or CIA to straighten them out using the above mentioned tools. When Victoria Nuland invites herself for a visit you know you are in for a whoopin’.

I’d say that about covers it.

Be seeing you

Erie Times-News Doesn’t Print Another Letter

Posted by M. C. on September 14, 2014

I must return to the original purpose of this blog, to circumvent the limitations imposed by my beloved local rag.  The lamestream media has been really getting to me and I had to vent via a letter to the editor.  Apparently it hit too close to home.  Here goes.

We read about supposed Russian aggression next door to them in Ukraine. Yet we never hear how the State Department (search for assistant secretary Victoria Nuland’s “$%@& the EU” cell phone conversation), National Endowment for Democracy and CIA aided and abetted the overthrow of the previous government. All because Victor Yuschenko decided Billions in Russian bailout money trumped Millions from the EU. Food is big business in Ukraine. US agribusinesses that advertise on Sunday morning news shows have much to gain with a US sock puppet in charge. Read the rest of this entry »

Negligence In The Mainstream Media Begets The Real Revolution

Posted by M. C. on April 26, 2014

I just read a letter in the Erie Times-News where the writer was talking how we should be getting tough with Syria for gassing innocent civilians. My first thought was I have to respond in the paper to enlighten this poor soul about Turkey’s responsibility. The writer probably has limited his news intake to newspapers and Bob Schiefer. I had already used up my one a month letter allocation and could not respond in a timely manner. But Hey! The Erie Times should be doing this as part of the responsibility they have taken on to keep the public informed.

Didn’t happen, not gonna happen. Read the rest of this entry »

Ukraine, Nazis and Big Ag

Posted by M. C. on April 6, 2014

If you were to believe the media’s take on the Ukraine you would think President Yanukovych was ousted by a popular upheaval. Yet another color revolution. They are right if you believe the recent color revolutions are the result of another US instigated coup.

Slowly bit surely the truth is coming out. It is now generally accepted everywhere except in Washington and the media that the Ukrainian coup was a US/National Endowment for Democracy project.

But here is an odd twist that the media is playing down. Just as we are aiding and abetting Al Qaeda jihadists in Syria, we have put a Nazi administration in charge of Ukraine.

One of the people Victoria Nuland and Geoffrey Pyatt were considering for a high government position in their “F* the EU” phone call was Oleh Tyahnybo head of the ultra-nationalist Svoboda party.

Senator John McCain and Victoria Nuland are quite chummy with Tyahnybo when they happen to stop in Kiev.

Who is Oleh Tyahnybo? He his a honcho in Svoboda. What is Svoboda? It is the blatantly pro nazi and fascist party we put in charge of Ukraine.

Tyahnybok’s right hand man Yuriy Mykhalchyshyn is a fan of Joseph Goebbels and founder of the Joseph Goebbels Political Research Center.

You may have seen photos of the US installed current Ukraine president Arseniy Yatsenyuk holding his hand up in nazi style salute. You may have noticed arm bands pictured in recent Ukraine photos that are reminiscent of the swastika. That is a Nazi salute and that is indeed a swastika.

Another US foreign policy masterpiece.

But wait until the IMF buys Ukraine’s debt and forces it to do their bidding.  Don’t think the IMF is giving anything away to the Ukraine.

Which brings us to the real reason we are messing in Ukraine.

Big AG.

Cargill, Monsanto, Lllly and Chevron and Victoria Nuland’s hubby Robert Kagan founder of Project of a New American Century. PNAC, a neocon empire building front.

Big AG with the help of the IMF, neocons and the dupe Obama is going to rape Ukraine for all it is worth.

On Jan. 12,  a reported 50, 000  “pro-Western” Ukrainians descended upon Kiev’s Independence Square to protest against the government of President Viktor Yanukovych. Stoked in part by an attack on opposition leader Yuriy Lutsenko, the protest marked the beginning of the end of Yanukovych’s four year-long government. That same day,the Financial Times a major deal for U.S. agribusiness titan Cargill.Despite the turmoil within Ukrainian politics after Yanukovych rejected a major trade deal with the European Union just seven weeks earlier, Cargill was confident enough about the future to fork over $200 million to buy a stake in Ukraine’s UkrLandFarming. According to Financial Times, UkrLandFarming is the world’s eighth-largest land cultivator and second biggest egg producer. And those aren’t the only eggs in Cargill’s increasingly-ample basket.

On Dec. 13, Cargill announced the purchase of a stake in a Black Sea port. Cargill’s port at Novorossiysk — to the east of Russia’s strategically significant and historically important Crimean naval base — gives them a major entry-point to Russian markets and adds them to the list of Big Ag companies investing in ports around the Black Sea, both in Russia and Ukraine.

Ukraine is an agricultural powerhouse.

Those poor bastards.

I have learned of the book “Old Nazis, the New Right and the Republican Party” by Russ Bellant. Supposedly an expose of our Nazi relations. Looks interesting.

Be seeing you
