Putin’s annual address to Federal Assembly (FULL VIDEO)

Amazing the difference between their stately State of the Union address and the freak-show that is ours. They don’t have to stand and applaud every 2 minutes else the risk someone seeing them sitting when everyone else is standing and then using that against them in an upcoming primary or something. It’s like day and night between the two. One is a state function, the other, a bad reality TV show commercial. Notice there are no teleprompters, no war-heroes in the audience, no pandering to various identity politics token audience members. Vladamir Putin comes out, gives a run-down on the state of Russia’s development and that’s it.

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…

CrossTalk: Epic Media Fail

Orwell Wept: New McCarthyites Taking Us Through the Looking Glass

(UPDATED with new YT channel)

CNN is harassing average citizens on their doorsteps saying they are puppets of Putin. Twitter is purging their system of wrong-think. Youtube closing channels. Mueller indicting Russian click-bait companies as cover for our own Stazi-like behavior in 2016. And the fake progressive left is on board including the fraud from Vermont who’s busy selling out his own supporters as agents of Goldstein/Putin.

We are beyond the looking glass, beyond a New McCarthyism.

1984 was a warning. We just chose to ignore it. Too busy glorifying ourselves on social media and following whatever identity politics trend that was popular at the time.

And now we live with the consequences.

What’s in your Room 101? You should think about that because with all the surveillance we live under these days… they probably already know.

Dutch FM resigns after admitting lie about meeting Putin

(This is what happens in a REAL COUNTRY when a politician gets caught LYING in support of MORE WAR. Over here we catch someone lying and then we run them for the highest office in the land and act shocked when they don’t win)

from RT

Dutch Foreign Minister Halbe Zijlstra has resigned, a day after he admitted lying about overhearing Russia’s President Vladimir Putin. In 2016 Zijlstra alleged Putin had in 2006 expressed ambitions to create a “Greater Russia.”

The official admitted that his credibility had been damaged by the ongoing scandal to such an extent that his position had become untenable.

Halbe Zijlstra announced his resignation in an emotional speech to the House of Representatives. Zijlstra described the “Greater Russia” affair as the “biggest mistake” in his political career, adding that the country deserves a Foreign Minister who is beyond reproach…

What Next? US Bans All Russian Nukes?

by Finian Cunningham, Sputnik International

Provocatively and recklessly, the American Pentagon has recently accused Russia of threatening European allies with nuclear weapons. On the basis of this deplorable accusation, the US is embarking on a $1 trillion upgrade of its nuclear arsenal.

The American nuclear revamp not only puts it in potential violation of disarmament agreements; the move is also destabilizing nuclear forces and increases the risk of catastrophic global war.

If ever Washington’s reckless power politics were in doubt, this is surely the touchstone issue…
