Robert Mueller Did Not Merely Reject the Trump-Russia Conspiracy Theories. He Obliterated Them.

  • Robert Mueller Did Not Merely Reject the Trump-Russia Conspiracy Theories. He Obliterated Them.
    by ,
    THE TWO-PRONGED CONSPIRACY THEORY that has dominated U.S. political discourse for almost three years – that (1) Trump, his family and his campaign conspired or coordinated with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election, and (2) Trump is beholden to Russian President Vladimir Putin — was not merely rejected today by the final report of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. It was obliterated: in an undeniable and definitive manner.

    The key fact is this: Mueller – contrary to weeks of false media claims – did not merely issue a narrow, cramped, legalistic finding that there was insufficient evidence to indict Trump associates for conspiring with Russia and then proving their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. That would have been devastating enough to those who spent the last two years or more misleading people to believe that conspiracy convictions of Trump’s closest aides and family members were inevitable. But his mandate was much broader than that: to state what did or did not happen.

    That’s precisely what he did: Mueller, in addition to concluding that evidence was insufficient to charge any American with crimes relating to Russian election interference, also stated emphatically in numerous instances that there was no evidence – not merely that there was insufficient evidence to obtain a criminal conviction – that key prongs of this three-year-old conspiracy theory actually happened. As Mueller himself put it: “in some instances, the report points out the absence of evidence or conflicts in the evidence about a particular fact or event.”

    With regard to Facebook ads and Twitter posts from the Russia-based Internet Research Agency, for example, Mueller could not have been more blunt: “The investigation did not identify evidence that any U.S. persons knowingly or intentionally coordinated with the IRA’s interference operation” (emphasis added). Note that this exoneration includes not only Trump campaign officials but all Americans:

CIA Director and NYTimes Accidentally Expose Skripal Poisoning Hoax – DUCKGATE

  • The Duran Published on Apr 20, 2019
    The Duran – News in Review – Episode 189. The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss the stunning, inadvertent, admission by the New York Times and CIA Director Gina Haspel that much of what we know from the Salisbury-Skripal poisoning is pure fabrication and manipulation. ‘Duckgate’, as it is now being dubbed, was used to trick US President Trump into expelling 60 Russian Diplomats over false photographic evidence presented to him by Haspel, as it was provided to her by UK authorities.  The manipulation of POTUS Trump, courtesy of CIA Director Haspel, the UK government (and accidentally documented on by the NYT), has now blown open some serious holes into the entire narrative that Sergei and Yulia Skripal were poisoned by Russian agents with the deadly Novichok nerve agent.

Mueller Exonerates Trump, But ‘Russiagate’ Will Not Die

  • RonPaulLibertyReport Streamed live on Apr 18, 2019
    Today’s extraordinary release of the Mueller Report tracks closely with Attorney General Barr’s recent summary: no collusion between the Trump campaign or any American with the Russians to help get Trump elected. Do not expect this to improve relations with Russia, however. There are poison pills in the report that ensure the push to war with Russia – in Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America – will continue. Investigative reporter Anya Parampil joins today’s Liberty Report.

‘Declare War on Lebanon, Take Out Syria’s S-300s’: Outgoing Israeli General on Handling Neighbors

  • ‘Declare War on Lebanon, Take Out Syria’s S-300s’: Outgoing Israeli General on Handling Neighbors
    Israel has the full arsenal needed to take on Hezbollah in Lebanon and eliminate the Iranian threat in Syria, the outgoing IDF Northern Command chief boasted, warning Damascus against using S-300s to protect its sovereignty.

    “If our freedom of movement is threatened, we will remove the threat. We know how to do that,”
    General Yoel Strick told Ynet News, adding that Israel will soon introduce “advanced weapons systems” to ensure it can continue to violate neighboring states’ airspace and to strike targets in Syria with impunity.

    If the Syrians employ Russian S-300s against our planes, and we take them out, it will be seen as a legitimate move on our part.

    While acknowledging that such a drastic move might damage Tel Aviv’s relations with Moscow, Strick expressed hope that it wouldn’t come to that. Moscow had supplied the Arab Republic with S-300 air defense systems following the downing of a Russian Il-20 reconnaissance plane with 15 airmen on board in mid-September, during an Israeli raid.

    Moscow also warned Israel that it will suppress all satellite navigation, radars and communications systems of combat planes over the Mediterranean Sea if their maneuvers threaten Russian forces. Since then, Israel has been staging its intrusions via Lebanon, where the Jewish State is trying to keep Hezbollah in check.

CrossTalk on Russiagate: ‘GAME OVER’

  • RT Published on Apr 19, 2019
    Is it finally over? Have we finally reached the expiration date of the Russiagate conspiracy hoax? Probably not. By definition conspiracy theorists are never satisfied. But a few things are for sure: confidence in government has taken a hit, and the reputation of the media may never be redeemed.

Russia Envisions a Multipolar ‘New World Order’ as Sun Sets on America’s Unipolar Moment

  • Russia Envisions a Multipolar ‘New World Order’ as Sun Sets on America’s Unipolar Moment
    by Robert Bridge,
    Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said that new centers of global power are working to build a multipolar system to replace US-led Western hegemony. All things considered, Washington should be very relieved.

    In comments that were widely ignored in the Western mainstream media, Russia’s veteran diplomat dropped a bombshell last week, declaring the demise of “the Western liberal model of development,” which he said is “losing its attractiveness and is no more viewed as a perfect model for all.”

    The diminishing enthusiasm over Washington’s plan for a ‘new world order’, a blueprint for global domination that was mentioned by former US President George H.W. Bush in 1991, is not just confined to non-Western countries. Citizens of the Western hemisphere are also increasingly skeptical about Washington’s unilateral ambitions, Lavrov noted.

    This is not the first time Western leaders flirted with the idea of a new world order. Woodrow Wilson, and later, Winston Churchill, were also guilty of it. However, it wasn’t until the collapse of the Soviet Union, America’s ideological arch enemy, that the plan for global domination, with the United States as the supreme authority, grabbed the imagination of Washington policymakers.

    As the late neoconservative Charles Krauthammer bluntly and not a little arrogantly explained, “The immediate post-Cold War world is not multipolar. It is unipolar. The center of world power is the unchallenged superpower, the United States, attended by its Western allies.”

    Washington, drunk from a powerful cocktail of exceptionalism and global hyper power, set out to recreate the planet in its own wonderful image. What could possibly go wrong?

    A global empire is born
    America’s dream of establishing a new world order, which seems to be just a euphemism for ‘global empire’, required a major offensive from multiple sources: from the patriotic and propagandist studios of the mainstream media and Hollywood, to the sprawling US military-industrial complex, to the Federal Reserve, which enjoyed – and still enjoys – fiat currency dominion as many global transactions continue to be done in US dollars.

    Indeed, the willingness of the United States to bring its economic power to bear against friends and enemies alike has been a disturbing trend of late. Presently, Washington is attempting to instigate civil disorder and potentially regime change in countries like Venezuela and Iran – two members of OPEC – by the imposition of severe sanctions. The very same methods were used in the past prior to full-blown military conflict in places like IraqLibya and Syria.

Dollar Dominance Under Multiple, Converging Threats

  • Dollar Dominance Under Multiple, Converging Threats
    by ,
    For years, currency analysts have looked for signs of an international monetary “reset” that would diminish the dollar’s role as the leading reserve currency and replace it with a substitute agreed upon at some Bretton Woods-style monetary conference.

    That push has been accelerated by Washington’s use of the dollar as a weapon of financial warfare, including the application of sanctions. The U.S. uses the dollar strategically to reward friends and punish enemies.

    The use of the dollar as a weapon is not limited to trade wars and currency wars, although the dollar is used tactically in those disputes. The dollar is much more powerful than that.

    The dollar can be used for regime change by creating hyperinflation, bank runs and domestic dissent in countries targeted by the U.S. The U.S. can depose the governments of its adversaries, or at least blunt their policies without firing a shot.

    But for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
    As the U.S. wields the dollar weapon more frequently, the rest of the world works harder to shun the dollar completely.

    I’ve been warning for years about efforts of nations like Russia and China to escape what they call “dollar hegemony” and create a new financial system that does not depend on the dollar and helps them get out from under dollar-based economic sanctions. These efforts are only increasing.

    Russia has sold off almost all of its dollar-denominated U.S. Treasury securities and has reduced its dollar asset position to almost zero. It has been amassing massive quantities of gold, and has increased the gold portion of its official reserves to over 20%. Russia has almost 2,000 tonnes of gold, having more than tripled its gold reserves in the past 10 years. It has actually acquired enough gold to surpass China on the list of major holders of gold as official reserves.

    This combination of fewer Treasuries and more gold puts Russia on a path to full insulation from U.S. financial sanctions. Russia can settle its balance of payments obligations with gold shipments or gold sales and avoid U.S. asset freezes by not holding assets the U.S. can reach.

Large Meteor Explodes in Sky Over Siberia in Third Major Space Fireball Incursion in Four Months

  • Large Meteor Explodes in Sky Over Siberia in Third Major Space Fireball Incursion in Four Months
    by, 7 April 2019
    Bright and noisy with a long, sparkling green and yellow tail, it was filmed by multiple observers in Krasnoyarsk region.

    The phenomenon caused fear on the ground. ‘I panicked as it sounded and looked like a plane on fire, I got really scared of the noise and shine it created’, said a local woman from Krasnoyarsk, the large industrial city. ‘I pulled a phone out of a pocket, but it flew across the sky so fast that I only caught a long white trace it left.’

    Some residents said the meteor was blindingly bright, akin  to the light and sparks created during intense welding work. It split into several parts before disappearing in the sky somewhere over Irkutsk region, east of Krasnoyarsk.
