Whose Bright Idea Was RussiaGate?

  • Whose Bright Idea Was RussiaGate?
    by Paul Craig Roberts, http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/
    The answer to the question in the title of this article is that Russiagate was created by CIA director John Brennan. The CIA started what is called Russiagate in order to prevent Trump from being able to normalize relations with Russia. The CIA and the military/security complex need an enemy in order to justify their huge budgets and unaccountable power. Russia has been assigned that role. The Democrats joined in as a way of attacking Trump. They hoped to have him tarnished as cooperating with Russia to steal the presidential election from Hillary and to have him impeached. I don’t think the Democrats have considered the consequence of further worsening the relations between the US and Russia.

    Public Russia bashing pre-dates Trump. It has been going on privately in neoconservative circles for years, but appeared publicly during the Obama regime when Russia blocked Washington’s plans to invade Syria and to bomb Iran.

    Russia bashing became more intense when Washington’s coup in Ukraine failed to deliver Crimea. Washington had intended for the new Ukrainian regime to evict the Russians from their naval base on the Black Sea. This goal was frustrated when Crimea voted to rejoin Russia.

    The neoconservative ideology of US world hegemony requires the principal goal of US foreign policy to be to prevent the rise of other countries that can serve as a restraint on US unilateralism. This is the main basis for the hostility of US foreign policy toward Russia, and of course there also is the material interests of the military/security complex.

    Russia bashing is much larger than merely Russiagate. The danger lies in Washington convincing Russia that Washington is planning a surprise attack on Russia. With US and NATO bases on Russia’s borders, efforts to arm Ukraine and to include Ukraine and Georgia in NATO provide more evidence that Washington is surrounding Russia for attack. There is nothing more reckless and irresponsible than convincing a nuclear power that you are going to attack.

    Washington is fully aware that there was no Russian interference in the presidential election or in the state elections. The military/security complex, the neoconservatives, and the Democratic Party are merely using the accusations to serve their own agendas. These selfish agendas are a dire threat to life on earth.

Pentagon Denounces American Nazis While Arming Ukrainian Nazis

  • Pentagon Denounces American Nazis While Arming Ukrainian Nazis
    by FINIAN CUNNINGHAM, https://www.strategic-culture.org/
    In the wake of violent protests involving white supremacists and Neo-Nazis in the US, the Pentagon’s top military brass issued unprecedented condemnations of «racists and extremists». One veterans spokesman said: «Anyone waving a Nazi flag must be rooted out of our society».

    What makes the Pentagon’s response to Swastika-flag-waving American Nazis rather bizarre is that this week the US Defense Secretary, General James Mattis, is reportedly traveling to Ukraine where he is to sign over shipments of lethal weapons to the armed forces of the Kiev regime. That regime openly glorifies Ukrainian regiments that collaborated with the Nazi Third Reich during the World War Two.

    Mattis, the top Pentagon official, is due to authorize the transfer of $50 million-worth of military gear to the Kiev regime. This will mark the first official delivery of lethal equipment from the US. Previous military aid to Ukraine was reportedly «non-lethal». Among the inventory Mattis is signing over are Javelin anti-tank missiles.

    Modern-day regiments under the control of the Kiev regime, such as the Azov Battalion, publicly self-identify with Nazi-collaborating descendants and former pro-Nazi Ukrainian leaders like Stefan Bandera. This Neo-Nazi ideology of the Kiev-run military is a central impetus in why these forces have waged a three-year war on the ethnic Russian population of the breakaway Donbas region in Eastern Ukraine. The latter refuses to recognize the legitimacy of the Kiev regime which seized power in February 2014 in a coup d’état against an elected government. The American CIA backed that violent coup.

War Is Right Around The Corner: Russia Mobilizes Three Motorized Rifle Division “Strike Forces” In Preparation For Rapid Offensive Assault On Ukraine

  • War Is Right Around The Corner: Russia Mobilizes Three Motorized Rifle Division “Strike Forces” In Preparation For Rapid Offensive Assault On Ukraine
    by Jeremiah Johnson, July 31st, 2017, http://www.SHTFplan.com
    “Signing a bill that sanctions Russia would mark a significant shift for Trump. He’s repeatedly cast doubt on the conclusion of U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia sought to tip the election in his favor. The president also has pushed for cooperation between Moscow and Washington on various matters, such as counterterrorism and the conflict in Syria, and more sanctions against Russia could imperil that effort.

    Trump’s persistent overtures to Russia drove lawmakers to include a section that mandates a congressional review if Trump attempted to suspend or terminate the sanctions on Moscow. The White House had objected to the review requirement, arguing it would infringe on the president’s executive authority and tie his hands as he explores avenues of communication between the two former Cold War foes.”

    “Vast support for Russia sanctions quashes potential for veto”
    Richard Lardner, Associated Press 7-25-17 

    As I wrote in the beginning of the year, the first six months in office make or break a president by setting the tempo for the remainder of his term.  The President has not been effective in any area, and he has pulled a complete 180-degree shift in dealing with Russia.  After they met in the G-20 summit, relations between the President and Vladimir Putin have steadily declined.

    Now we have a Congress who has long desired to go to war with Russia, and a President who is ineffective at every turn.  Obamacare will not be repealed, the border fence is a fiasco, and the Democrats (aided by the pseudo-Republicans) are doing the “Rope-a-Dope” on the President.  They are bouncing off the actions he takes akin to Ali on the ropes and making continuous counterattacks of their own.  Domestically, the President has not lost control because he never had it, and now the shadow government that is hidden behind the pseudo-Congress and the moneyed interests that support it are pushing the United States into a war with Russia.

    It’s worse than merely a consortium seeking expansion of empire and all the attached perks.  Look at this excerpt:

The Next Escalation: Pentagon Offers To Arm Ukraine, McCain Delighted

  • The Next Escalation: Pentagon Offers To Arm Ukraine, McCain Delighted
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com
    When we reported yesterday about Putin’s surprisingly harsh response to last week’s House legislation to launch new sanctions against Russia, which also binds Trump from unilaterally removing sanctions without getting Congressional approval, we concluded that “now we await the US re-retaliation in what is once again the same tit-for-tat escalation that marked the latter years of the Obama regime, as the US Military Industrial Complex breathes out a sigh of relief that for all the posturing by Trump, things between Russia and the US are back on autopilot.

    We didn’t have long to wait.
    The WSJ reports that, in what appears to be the next gambit by the U.S. Military-Industrial Complex (or “deep state” for those so inclined) to force Trump to “prove” that he did not, in fact, collude or have any ties with Russia or Vladimir Putin, Pentagon and State Department officials have devised plans to hit Russia where it hurts the most, and supply Ukraine with antitank missiles and other weaponry, and are now seeking White House approval at a time when ties between Moscow and Washington are as bad as during any point under the Obama administration.

  • If Macron is able to engineer peace in Ukraine, my conclusion is that thermonuclear WW3 with Russia in Eastern Europe has been shelved. Ie. the Satanic WW3 plan will go no further than what is happening on the ground now. It also signals a major sign/warning: (the Man of Sin has probably arrived)

    Daniel 9:27 New King James Version (NKJV)
    27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
    But in the middle of the week
    He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
    And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
    Even until the consummation, which is determined,
    Is poured out on the desolate.”

Macron (the “Peacemaker”) to Discuss Ukraine with Putin, Merkel and Poroshenko

Macron election victory speech hands up under eye of pyramid.

  • Macron to discuss Ukraine with Putin, Merkel and Poroshenko
    by Sudip Kar-Gupta; Editing by Mark Trevelyan and Andrew Bolton, http://www.reuters.com/
    PARIS (Reuters) – French President Emmanuel Macron will call the leaders of Russia, Germany and Ukraine on Monday to discuss the conflict in eastern Ukraine, his office said in a statement, as world powers step up efforts to try to end the violence in the region.

    The conversations with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, Germany’s Angela Merkel and Ukraine president Petro Poroshenko are part of moves involving the four countries since 2014 to resolve the separatist conflict in which some 10,000 people have been killed.

    A ceasefire agreement was signed in February 2015 in Minsk, the capital of Belarus, but has failed to end the violence. Macron met Poroshenko in June, shortly after winning the French presidential election.

    At the time, Macron had said he saw no better way of negotiating an end to the conflict in Ukraine than through the Minsk agreements – comments that contrasted with those of U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

    Tillerson said on June 14 that the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump did not wish to be “handcuffed” by the 2015 accords, and he suggested Kiev could reach a separate, independent agreement with Moscow.

    Tillerson carried out his first official visit to Kiev earlier this month, during which he said Russia should make the first move to bring peace to eastern Ukraine, and that Washington’s primary goal was the restoration of Ukrainian territorial sovereignty.

The Satanic capstone on your dollar bill ie. the Anti-Christ, the bringer of false peace, the white horseman of Revelation 6. The Luciferian New World Order will be complete with the arrival of the Satanic capstone, the Man of Sin who will conquer the world with ‘peace’ in a world wrecked by global wars. Revelation 6!

NATO Preparing for Aggression Against Russia: Military Experts

  • Published on Jul 12, 2017
    A delegation led by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has visited Ukraine this week. In 2015, the western military alliance started deploying forces in Central and Eastern Europe citing the Ukrainian crisis. Experts say the western propaganda and its branding of Russia an aggressive power as well as its troop deployment to Eastern Europe indicate that NATO is preparing for an aggression against Russia.

NATO Vows Support For Ukraine Against Russia’s “Aggressive Actions”

  • NATO Vows Support For Ukraine Against Russia’s “Aggressive Actions”
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com
    Just a few short days after President Trump’s ‘relative’ rapprochement with Russian President Putin, his ‘allies’ in NATO have stepped up the rhetoric in a very sensitive area for Putin, as NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg pledged support for Ukraine during a visit to Kiev on Monday.

    As Military.com reports, Ukraine and the West accuse Moscow of smuggling weapons and troops across the porous border in support of the separatists, a charge has repeatedly denied.

    “Russia has maintained its aggressive actions against Ukraine, but NATO and NATO allies stand by Ukraine and stand on your side,” Stoltenberg said at the NATO-Ukraine Commission session in Kiev.

    “Russia must withdraw its thousands of soldiers from Ukraine and stop supporting the militants,” he added during a press conference with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.

    The conflict in eastern Ukraine and Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014 have driven ties between Moscow and the West to their lowest point since the Cold War.

    “We are also here to demonstrate NATO’s solidarity with Ukraine and our firm support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of your country,” Stoltenberg said.

Prepping for Battle: US Sends Warships & SEALs to Stage Huge Operation Off Ukraine Coast

  • Prepping for Battle: US Sends Warships & SEALs to Stage Huge Operation Off Ukraine Coast
    by BELINDA ROBINSON, http://www.express.co.uk/
    US WARSHIPS and a team of elite Navy Seals have arrived in the Black Sea to embark on an international 12-day war games near Ukraine.

    The massive military operation will see 800 American sailors and a maritime forces from 16 countries drive in the Black Sea. It’s thought that the military fleets want to send Russia a clear warning that any aggressions in the area would not be welcome. Operation “Sea Breeze” will play host to 31 vessels, 29 aircraft and 3000 troops.

    In a bid to show the mighty force of NATO’s international presence, the US, Britain, Canada, Italy, France Norway, Poland and Turkey will show off their military prowess. In March 2014, the crimea referendum led to the peninsula reuniting with mainland Russia. Since the spring of 2014, NATO warships, including US missile cruisers, have been patrolling the Black Sea to prevent aggression from Russian warships.

Military Escalation on Russia’s Doorstep: Kiev Announces US Combat Troops Will Deploy in Donbass

  • Military Escalation on Russia’s Doorstep: Kiev Announces US Combat Troops Will Deploy in Donbass
    by EN.News Front, via http://www.globalresearch.ca/
    Kiev, Ukraine. In remarkable events, that now look strangely related, the Ukrainian speaker of Parliament, the Rada-has announced Ukraine has an agreement with the United States of America to deploy combat troops to “assist” their martial law operation or reintegration of Donbass plan.

    A security agreement with the United States has been signed that provides for the deployment of US military forces on the territory of Ukraine, as stated by the head of the Verkhovna Rada, Andriy Parubiy, on the air during a broadcast of the program “Freedom of Speech” on Kiev television.

    “The agreement envisages special operations, joint scientific and technical developments, and even the deployment of military troops from the United States of America in Ukraine,” he said.

    According to the Speaker, the practice of such agreements has long been used in the US, and similar documents have been signed with Japan, Australia and Israel. He noted that the agreement provides a prerogative right to provide military-grade lethal arms to Ukraine.

    Parubiy believes that the question of providing lethal weapons can be resolved in the near future. As previously reported, former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright spoke in favor of giving Ukraine defensive weapons.

    US forces are currently acting as advisers and operate on a secret basis in Donbass. The actual deployment of US forces as a backup force to Ukrainian units involved in martial law duties fighting in Donbass is a sharp, severe escalation of the Donbass conflict to a level not seen previously.

Ukraine, Korea, Syria, Iran… Falsifying History is Uncle Sam’s Way to War

  • Ukraine, Korea, Syria, Iran… Falsifying History is Uncle Sam’s Way to War
    by FINIAN CUNNINGHAM, http://www.strategic-culture.org/
    Russian President Vladimir Putin addressed the International Arctic Forum this week on the real and present dangers from falsifying history. He said such deliberate distortion of history erodes international law and order, creating chaos and leading to further conflict.

    The Russian leader deplored the use of history as an «ideological weapon» to demonize others, and he said that without proper understanding of history we are bound to repeat mistakes of the past. That also reminds one of the maxim Karl Marx once wrote: «History repeats itself first as tragedy, then as farce».

    As if on cue, while Putin was enumerating the dangers of false history, Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko was being hosted in London by British premier Theresa May during a two-day visit.

    The Kiev-based regime that Poroshenko leads came to power through an illegal, violent coup against an elected government in February 2014, with clandestine support from Washington and the European Union. The Ukrainian state military ever since have been waging a war on the eastern region of the country, resulting in a death toll of over 10,000 and up to a million displaced. All because the ethnic Russian population of the eastern Donbas region refuses to recognize the Kiev regime’s legitimacy owing to its illegal power grab three years ago.

    However, the way Poroshenko and the Kiev regime tells it, Ukraine is fighting off an invasion by Russia. The Ukrainian president’s falsification of history was dignified by his British host who dutifully nodded along as Poroshenko claimed that his country was a bulwark of Europe’s defense against Russian invasion.
