The Accidental President Was Not Our Failure… He Was Theirs… and don’t you forget it

by Scott Creighton

(The following is an email I sent to a reader discussing the election of 2016 and Donald Trump’s betrayals of his base since coming into office. Sometimes people confuse “outcome” with “plan” and in this case I think doing that belittles a small victory that the American people achieved in Nov. of 2016. I  don’t typically post emails as articles but in this case I thought it was an important question that deals with an important moment in time. One that got away from them when Democracy reared it’s ugly head in America and scared the crap out of our owners… if just for a second. It’s also very important in terms of just how far they are going to make sure social media and people sharing information with each other doesn’t screw up their plans for 2018 and 2020)

Hi again (reader)

In my opinion, in the eyes of the masters of our universe, the (s)election of 2016 was a disaster from the start which might lend one to believe, as I think you do, that the whole purpose of it was to undermine not only our belief in the system we have but also to undermine young people’s expectation of a better tomorrow. To kill hope, so to speak.

I don’t think that is true. It may be the unintended consequence of (s)Election 2016, but often times people misconstrue “outcome” with “plan” when it comes to the workings of our Deep State. Because that’s how the Deep State likes it. Even their losses become victories.

Don’t give into that thinking, it’s just their spin. Because when you do that, you really have lost.

The Real Goal of “Russiagate” is to Prepare for Endless Austerity and War

by Glen Ford, BAR

“The ruling circles of the imperial superpower set out to destabilize and call into disrepute the government of the home country.”

Robert Mueller, the former head of the national political police (FBI), has indicted 13 Russian nationals for the crime of sowing “discord in the U.S. political system” and encouraging “U.S. minority groups not to vote in the 2016 U.S. presidential election or to vote for a third-party U.S. presidential candidate.” The defendants’ nationality makes their acts of political speech a crime, in Mueller’s legal view, but “at least 20 Americans” are embedded in the document as unindicted co-conspirators “ because they interacted in various ways with the Russian team’s activities during the 2016 presidential campaign.

These U.S. citizens “were just engaging in politics,” said independent journalist Marcy Wheeler, on Democracy Now! “They were putting together campaign events. They were engaging in online speech. That’s like, you know, the most sacred part of being an American citizen. And yet, they were unknowingly interacting with Russians….”

The Russians will never face trial in the U.S., and it is highly unlikely that the unindicted Americans will be criminally charged — but that is not the purpose of Mueller’s indictment. The political crime has been defined, for the broad purpose of repressing dissent in the United States. The witch hunt has found a legalistic vocabulary…

…The cabal has flipped the factual script. It was the Democrats and their allies in corporate media and the national security state that devised a calculated campaign to sow “discord” and “distrust towards the political system in general,” such as not seen in living memory. The initial goal was to depose or discipline the unpredictable, racist billionaire who in 2016 crushed the establishment leaders of the Republican Party — potentially destabilizing the duopoly system of corporate governance — rhetorically rejected the dogma of “free trade,” and spoke as if he would not maintain the momentum of his predecessor’s global military offensive. With the “intelligence community” on point, the political offensive could not help but take on the characteristics of a profoundly destabilizing regime change and psychological operations mission.

In other words, the ruling circles of the imperial superpower set out to destabilize and call into disrepute the sitting government of the home country. They have inflicted great trauma and anxiety among the public in the process, but thanks to the corporate media component of the cabal, most of the blame has accrued to the targets of the campaign: Trump, “the Russians” and those defamed as “dupes” and “co-conspirators” with the fictitious Putin-Trump axis.

It is quite evident that this campaign of self-inflicted chaos is a project of the global corporate class, manifesting elsewhere in the “West” in remarkably similar fashion, but with local characteristics. Russia is, thus, charged with attempting to subvert governments around the world through minions like the St. Petersburg outfit. Through their servants in the Democratic Party, the corporate media, and the intelligence agencies, multinational capital has used Trump’s election to inflict a kind of shock treatment on their domestic polities — a very dangerous gambit, especially in the United States, with its weak social contract and immense capacity for civil violence…

The Nunes Memo and FISA Section 702: The Nunes Conundrum

While folks clamor to #ReleaseTheMemo , Devin Nunes’ “fix” to FISA Section 702 is anything but. As the official government (the ELECTED government) is shut down, the Deep State wins again.

Hillary Clinton PR firms BUSTED paying off journalists to push Trump-Russia fake news

by Alex Christoforou, from The Duran

The Gateway Pundit reported that on Tuesday, a federal court unsealed Fusion GPS’s bank records, showing that the PR smear machine paid off journalists to push the fake news “Trump Dossier”, that was the impetus for the entire Mueller special counsel.

Hillary Clinton paid Fusion GPS upwards of $12 million to put together the fictitious “dossier” that her Clinton mafia media machine would later use to drive a Trump-Russia collusion narrative.

Judge Richard Leon, a Bush-appointee, unsealed the records, showing 112 transactions involving Fusion GPS…

Establishment “Hack” Donna Brazile’s Crass Attempt to Rewrite the History of the 2016 Primary and Rebrand the Corrupt, Neoliberal DNC for 2018

by Scott Creighton

You must remember that the desire of the establishment hacks isn’t get you to believe 2+2=5. That would make you an idiot. What they want is for you to ACCEPT that 2+2 CAN EQUAL 5.

A week ago on Nov. 2nd, the establishment hack website Politico published a little sneak peak of Donna Brazile’s “ground breaking” new book “Hacks” on their website. It served it’s purpose. The public got all excited about the upcoming publication and the WWE-style “debate” began to rage between the establishment “hacks” who back Clinton and the defenders of Brazile who pretend they are somehow different from their detractors.

It’s a show. Nothing more.

Politico is an establishment rag who would never publish anything of substance that dared address the real problem with the un-Democratic Party today.

For that matter, Brazile’s book is being published by Hachette Book Group, one of the 5 big publishing houses here in the states (French owned but based out of New York city of course):

Its headquarters are located at 1290 Avenue of the Americas, Midtown Manhattan, New York City.[2] Hachette is considered one of the big-five publishing companies, along with Holtzbrinck/Macmillan, Penguin Random House, HarperCollins, and Simon & Schuster.[3]

Why would these massive, establishment-backing entities publish and promote a book that claims to be attacking the Clinton machine which serves their interest so well?

Perhaps because her book doesn’t do that at all. Instead what it may do is help them to remake the tarnished image of the corporatist left, the neoliberal “centrist” left, in time for the 2018 mid-term elections.

Let us be very clear about what happened in 2016. The corporate DNC stole the nomination from Sanders voters and had they not done that, we would be evaluating the first year of his presidency instead of Trump’s. That’s a fact that is unavoidable.

They didn’t merely “tip the scale”… they STOLE the nomination.

Everyone of her dogged supporters right now say Hillary COULDN’T have rigged the election because they are all run by the individual states and not the national DNC ergo… they could not possibly have “rigged” the election.

That is ridiculous. If you don’t think the state and local chairmen of the party would be willing and eager to appease the Clinton machine and the national DNC establishment by doing their bidding and helping them rig the primaries in favor of Killary, you are a moron.

Exit polling proved they were doing just that before they decided to stop allowing exit polling because it was exposing their theft of the primary.

Millions of Sanders voters were PURGED off the DNC registration rolls just prior to the election. They were forced to fill out absentee ballots which were shredded and never counted.

Rules were changed in states where caucuses were held so Hillary would “win” them and when the members reacted angrily to those acts, the DNC and their friends in the establishment media tried to make it look like Sanders supporters were violent thugs attacking poor innocent Debbie Wassserman Schultz.

The 2016 DNC primary was absolutely rigged and it was rigged by the leadership of the DNC in collusion with the heads of various state DNC chapters for one very specific reason… to keep someone with SLIGHTLY progressive opinions OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE.

The corporate DNC understood that Sanders polled much better against Trump than Hillary did. She was the most unpopular candidate they ever fielded. Period. Her corruption was legendary and her history of backing neoliberal economic ideology goes back to her days as a Goldwater Girl.

Hillary Clinton isn’t just a “right of Reagan” republican… she’s a neocon and as such, she was eventually BACKED by the vast majority of the neocons. The same neocons that made up the Bush/Cheney regime.

Killing off the Sanders bid for the White House became the DNC’s primary goal even coming before her “winning” the general election and you know that by how much time they spent alienating his progressive base. Yes, they called the angry Trump supporters “deplorable” but they were even harsher on Bernie bots if you recall.

To the neoliberals in the DNC, it would be better to have a neoliberal Trump in the White House than a SLIGHTLY progressive Sanders and so it made them work very hard and risk a lot to make sure that goal was met. Even if that meant burning down the un-Democratic Party in the process.

But what would they care? They’re republicans anyway.

Who is Peter Strzok and Why Does It Matter?

by Scott Creighton

News broke 7 days ago about a key investigator in the Robert Mueller inquiry being suddenly demoted to the Human Resources department of the FBI. The news broke, seemed profoundly interesting and then it disappeared off the radar like it never happened.

Just over a month ago, the Justice Department announced FBI Section Chief Peter Strzok would be joining their investigation into the Trump campaign “collusion” with the Russian’s story. Strzok was a high ranking investigator with a history of being either in charge of or assisting on some very high profile cases:

July 13, 2017 – “Justice Department Special Counsel Robert Mueller has brought on Peter Strzok, a senior FBI official who oversaw the Hillary Clinton email investigation, to help manage his investigation into Russian election meddling, according to two US officials briefed on the matter.

Strzok helped oversee the beginnings of the Russia probe last summer at the FBI.” CNN

So Strzok was not only the lead investigator looking into Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a private email server while she was Sec. of State, but he was ALSO helping to head-up the FBI’s investigation into the alleged Trump “collusion” story.

That’s some high-powered investigations at the time, especially when you consider the lengths to which the Obama administration and the Justice Department went through in order to make sure Hillary was ordained in November of 2016.

But then something happened:

Aug. 16 2017 – “One of the FBI‘s top investigators, tapped by special counsel Robert Mueller just weeks ago to help lead the probe of Russian meddling in last year’s presidential election, has left Mueller’s team, sources tell ABC News.

The recent departure of the FBI veteran, Peter Strzok, is the first known hitch in a secretive probe that, by all public accounts, is charging full steam ahead…

It’s unclear why Strzok stepped away from Mueller’s team

As chief of the FBI’s counterespionage section last year, he helped oversee the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was the secretary of state

Within weeks of the end of the Clinton probe, Strzok found his office facing a new challenge: investigating Russia’s alleged efforts to influence last year’s presidential election

(He) is now working for the FBI’s human resources divisionABC News

This is a remarkable demotion for someone with so much access to extremely dangerous information. It has been reported that it is very rare for someone so high ranking to be demoted in this way, but it has happened and when it has in the past the point it to keep a subject on the payroll while limiting their access to intelligence.

In short, the neutered Peter Strzok after he was a key player in their efforts to white wash Hillary’s criminal background, while trying their best to fabricate one for her opponent.

Right around the same time seven days ago, this little gem appeared:

Aug. 16 2017 – “The FBI has “reopened” its consideration of a request for records on the infamous 2016 tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton, the group behind that request told Fox News” Fox News

Was Strzok struck down because they wanted to avoid the appearance of still more collusion between the Justice Department and the Clinton criminal regime or were they concerned he might leak something in a last ditch effort to protect them?

It’s hard too say but these two events are probably not merely a coincidence.

In order to better understand what has just happened under the radar, you have to go back and take an honest look at the timeline of events that unfolded during what I consider the most corrupt election process this country has ever suffered from. And we are suffering.

Say what you will about Bernie Sanders (and I have said plenty about that corrupt, sheep-dogging, war-supporting, lying piece of crap) the Clinton campaign stole the nomination from him and more importantly, his supporters. That is an UNDENIABLE fact.

Understanding that very simple fact should make it easier for you to digest what I am about to tell you:
