Ooobie on Everything

at last

Even as our friends on the left laughed and celebrated and threw their hats in the air, convinced that Trump was headed for impeachment as a traitor who stole the election, convinced he was a madman for impugning the honor of Barack Hussein Obama, a few brave people within the US Civil Service snuck out of the range of fire to report to California Representative Nunes on how in fact Trump was surveilled, or as the President said “wire-tapped.” How sweet it is.

When Trump made his accusation (and wouldn’t you like to know who really tipped him off?), prima donna James Comey flew to the press in a snit of righteousness to say he had asked the DOJ to issue a flat denial of anybody authorizing “wire-tapping” against the then president-elect or even candidate. Of course that was a pure technicality, which is another way of saying “lie.” Then Comey, with that pugnacious jaw thrust out, tried to finish off Trump by announcing that he and his campaign were under investigation for treason, i.e. collusion with the Russians to steal Hillary’s coronation, and had been since mid-2016. But Comey was oh, so coy about the issue of felonious leakers currently lurking within the USG. Seems maybe the FBI gives a damn; and maybe not. His goal was pretty clear, a chance to get even for Trump’s outrageous use of “outreach” to out the FBI.

Now we know that some unstated number of Trump allies and maybe even Trump himself were under surveillance under the Obama regime. Hence the leaks the Dems were hoping the rest of us would buy as “smoking guns” and just cause to remove Trump and install Hillary. Boy, Comey always comes up smelling like horse excrement.

Needless to say, the Democrats and their cronies in the press gasp about Rep. Nunes rushing to tell the Prez that he had been right after all. “You favor the president!” screamed Schiff. What Nunes should have said was, “and how about you? aren’t you actively opposing the president? this brings some balance.” But Nunes didn’t care and he did right. If he hadn’t outed the lie into the public domain, it would have “disappeared” like all those who ran afoul of the CIA in Latin America in the 40s and 50s and 60s and 70s and 80s and no doubt 90s (then I retired from the State Department).

I’m happy to find that my own judgment was correct, that there had of course been surveillance call it what you will against Trump and his allies. How else would you have had leaks of conversations? It wasn’t  magic, was it? And finally someone did indeed have the courage to buck the trend and end the silence about the massive abuse of Executive Branch powers by the Obama administration.

(Note: I’m listening to that purveyor of lies, Adam Schiff, tell us that Obama partisan Sally Yates is willing, yea frothing at the mouth, to come forward and defame Trump. Okay. Maybe not “defame Trump” literally, but in reality, yes. It’s tough being on defense, Adam.)

So here is the bottom line: the CIA probably planted electronic trace that allegedly led back to Russia to back up the Brennan/Clapper lie it was Russia and NOT Seth Rich of DNC dissidence fame who passed the evidence of DNC corruption to Wikileaks. Take a look at Zero Hedge  on this subject.  At a minimum, they had the capability to do so. (See Wikileaks.) They padded this bit of electronic “evidence” with the kind of scurrilous rumor-mongering that Brit ex-spy Steele was selling. Then their pals in the intel community either turned a blind eye to the lie of collusion and a “false election” (I’d guess Adm. Rogers…) or colluded actively in the lie. This happened as a result of the politicization of the civil service, which is supposed to be a totally neutral body. If not, you’d have people leaking top secret information to deep-six the opposition. Imagine.

I was trying to write about all this for weeks, but I kept discarding my drafts. I felt there was something else coming that would clarify the situation. What Nunes has brought forth, thanks to that heroic “deep throat¨ has indeed clarified the situation. Now others are stepping up to reveal what was going on under Obama to sabotage the Trump Administration. We are in a perilous state of governance in which our decisions are being shaped by false information


McCarthyism Lives

Joe McCarthy only found 205 spies in the State Department. Imagine that, and all the hysteria surrounding the claim. Quite recently, nine hundred State Department “professionals” signed a dissent channel message that was pretty clearly coordinated with the media for maximum impact. It was an act of political defiance against the president and his supporters among the US public.

But onward to other traitors. There are of late a few serious commentators who are trying to focus public attention on the swelling sociopathic intolerance in the US. This McCarthyism is exercised in its current incarnation by the left, not the right, which only goes to prove the dictum that the extreme left and extreme right are identical in all ugly essentials. Such experts in Russian and US-Russian affairs as Dr. Stephen F. Cohen of NYU are trying to call attention to the dangers of this intolerance, which is expressed in ostracism of and sometimes violence against anybody not on board with the meme that Russia is an enemy of America. They are trying to swamp the airwaves with the idea that Russia in collusion with Trump was responsible for Hillary Clinton’s appalling loss. Cohen disarticulates their allegations brilliantly in his discourses, but the bottom line is: no evidence to prove charges that appear to be politically motivated. He sees the relentless campaign of half-truths and lies as destructive of US-Russian relations and an effort to impede any improvement. He concludes that these goals are part of the Democrat game plan. I myself have never experienced such a wave of hysteria among a public agitated by the propagandists (hence agit-prop). Obama calls these people community organizers and sees himself as the King of All Community Organizers. Their goal: to deliberately undermine the government and remove the sitting president from office. To replace said president with a nominee of the Deep State and its financiers.

In their battle to take the White House, the left long ago sacrificed truth. Truth is whatever serves their crusade for permanent power and global socialism. The Russian card was planted before the Obama Administration left the premises, likely as an ace in the hole, a tasty bit of blackmail against what the planters thought would be be a Republican minority. When the US voters shafted the Democrat party, the Russia ploy took on major importance as a red herring leading the public to focus not on the corrupt Dems and their corrupt candidate as the cause of defeat, but on a treacherous Trump somehow in bed with the Russians. The Dems operate on nearly one hundred percent supposition and assumption. Recall that the first document to kick off the campaign, surfaced by Deep State agent John Brennan, was an “intelligence assessment,” shorthand for this is a result of brain-storming without actual evidence or only bits and bobs of evidence. (See “Intelligence Assessment and Unpredictability” at https://sourcesandmethods.blogspot.com/2014/04/intelligence-assessment-and.html). A few members of the intelligence community came out and gave their blessings to the story, although not all were equally enthusiastic about it. And nobody offered evidence, instead falling back on the old trust us. Long time intel folks were certainly not convinced, no doubt remembering story lines from the past. And our professional diplomats such as Jack Matlock and political ambassadors such as the anti-Putin Michael McFaul are not convinced either. They and the rest of us in this vast field of “Russology” don’t think the Russians are amateurs who leave giant clues around to track their activity. Our own government doesn’t leave tracks, either, and you can ask Angela Merkel about that. So unless we get something substantive as proof, we have to hold onto our doubts.

This began, of course, as a domestic operation from the defeated Democrats. Guys like Podesta and the cheat Donna Brazile had to allay the wrath of the donors, who spent three times as much to lose as Trump did to win. But the diversion went so well, with the public so ready to believe that the Russians were behind all the upset, that they began to trot Russia out as an excuse for everything and as an all-purpose weapon to bludgeon the president to death. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and the Dems socialist brethren in Europe are now using the same scare tactic to explain their own political misfortunes.

But wait. We now know — don’t we? — that the CIA has the capacity to pretend to be Papa Bear, Mama Bear and Baby Bear, hacking and leaving a message “from Russia with love.” I am now wondering: if there really were hacks of European institutions, and not just fevered European imaginations, could the hackers be the CIA? How terribly convenient, that just as the CIA and its feckless intel cohorts were claiming the Russians have hacked all European elections, there is evidence of a hack of all European governments! Talk about proof. It’s like the USG having a printing press for money: it never runs out. That’s the CIA. The Lie Factory. (And hey. I have friends in the CIA utterly beyond reproach — but they don’t run the shop.)

And how about Jeff Sessions? The allegations (and virtually all headlines) suggest Sessions had “meetings” with Russian Ambassador Kislyak, implying some wrong-doing. But in fact he only had one meeting with the Ambassador, in his Capitol Hill office as a high-ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. What Kislyak was looking for other than to make a contact with someone he knew had influence in the Trump camp we do not know and will not know unless the CIA is now into mind-reading. Sessions did not meet him as a Trump surrogate, but as a US Senator and he did not discuss campaign business or Russian “assistance” to said campaign. Sessions also bumped into the Ambassador among many others at a cocktail during the Republican National Convention. And by the way, as an example of how the Dems play this, they also propose that the absence of Kislyak at their own convention showed his favoritism toward Trump and bolsters their claim Trump is a traitor sucking up to Russian intelligence agents. On the other hand, the DNC convention took place only a couple of weeks after DNC staffer and Sanders supporter Seth Rich was murdered without any known reason on a DC street, and just as the Wikileaks information on Dem corruption was pouring out to the world. And of course the private security firm that allowed the DNC leak in the first place was claiming “the Russians did it!” Can’t blame Kislyak for staying home.

So here we are in the grip of a new wave of McCarthyism and the irony is that it is the left who are in charge of the campaign. And the hearth and home of the traitorous left is exactly where Joe McCarthy said it was, in Hollywood and New York, the intellectuals who move the actors’ and actresses’ lips to sell their ideology. They are offspring of the men and women McCarthy accused of being a Fifth Column. Now instead of scrounging for another job after their exposure as anti-Americans, they brazenly crawl out from under their rocks, waving their communist banners, raging to shut down ideas and debate across our society. In between snorts.

They demonize the President and his supporters for having the wrong ideas. They want to tar Trump as the  man elected by Moscow. Put these two streams of thought together and they spell treason; they spell evil; they spell Hitler. And, by the way, they spell — if the Dems succeed — “overthrow of an elected US government.” The Democrats are trying to set up boundaries for free speech and free association. They are declaring the Russians “off limits” in exactly the same way the Soviet officials declared to their citizens that America was “off limits,” and for the same reason. If you can’t sell your ideas in free competition, shut down the competition. They are declaring that anybody who likes Russia is a traitor, anybody who speaks to Russians even casually is a felon, anybody who admires Putin’s leadership skills is an…Alger Hiss (another left-wing favorite!).

And that’s today. Maybe tomorrow they will love Russia, and there will be a new enemy to slay. Truth is relative, baby.

And while the Dems have their reasons to do this to Trump, others in the GOP are complicit in his attempted political assassination. What they object to is that Trump has dared to turn US official attitudes toward Russia since the Cold War on their heads. Instead of the obsolete concept of encircling and containing Russia — a theory that had its glorious moment in the post-WW II world — he wants to treat Russia as we would any other country, based on the facts and not preconceived notions. He doesn’t have an axe to grind, and so the left grinds theirs all the harder. And the agents of the military-industrial complex grind away, too.

Now it turns out, per the President, that the intel services had his phones in Trump Tower wire-tapped before the election. Collecting information. Hoping to collect dirt. Really hoping to catch treason. (Yes, Virginia, there are crazy people.) I heard Geraldo Rivera abasing himself by trying to excuse this inexcusable act and shame on him. We are in such dangerous waters. And I think by now people are catching on.


Sedition and treason stalk America

I watch astounded at the audacity of ignorant thugs hired by the left wreaking havoc on our nation. They are the paid hounds of hell, loosed on our society to force confrontation between the Marxist-Leninists (aka socialists) and the deplorables, also known as right-wingers, Nazis, neo-Nazis, fascists, and so on. (Did you ever notice how communists is never a dirty word for these guys?) I see that the unhinged Sarah Silverman became terrified by the neo-Nazi symbols painted all over New York. Those were, of course, utility markings that actually bore very little resemblance to a swastika. A woman contemptuous of Israel on a daily basis, she used her Jewish card to excuse her stupidity. Everything, including the tracks of slalom skiers, reminds her of swastikas, like the hiss of a snake is ingrained in a bird’s brain. Another tweeter skewered her stupidity with a series of tweets featuring “neo-Nazis” (utility workers) doing various neo-Nazi things, like raising the Iron Cross (a utility pole) that bore an obvious resemblance to “T” for Trump. He’s funny. She’s just, well, stupid.

Let’s be frank. There is a paid and coordinated effort to create public hysteria (the Russian menace; the Nazi regime) in order to feed approval for acts of subversion and treason against an elected president and the USG. They want to bring down Trump, and are happy to tear down the Constitution, individual rights and public order to do so. I worked for years for the USG, as did my husband. I have never seen this kind of open sabotage by people paid out of public funds. There was always a Democrat preference, but never the deliberate undermining of superiors. This is scary and shameful. This is unprecedented. These people want permanent power and we are the mote in their eye.

Regime change has come home to roost. You better believe all those who suffered it at our hands are cheering. They’re scared, but they’re cheering. The hand of God and all that.

Trump has to move much more rapidly to remove removable officials suspected of being opposition activists, what we should rightly call moles and saboteurs. It isn’t enough to take out the top political appointees, he needs to dig deeper into the hierarchy and start rooting out those who have violated their oath of neutrality. The bureaucracy will otherwise bury him.

Another issue: the Russophobia. The degree of hysterical coverage of Russia has surpassed anything I have ever seen, which includes the entire Cold War. It is not a coincidence that this rise in public fear happens months after the USG funded a major program (under Obama) to counter Russian propaganda with US propaganda aimed at Russia. There was even a press conference to announce the start of this Big Lie program. And Russia is such an easy sap to set up as the Arch-Enemy of America. Only problem is this: today’s America is spelled “Amerika.” The people pressing the anti-Russian line are either insane (McCain) or uninformed, or making big money on our mounting military aggression against Russia (the military-industrial et al complex). Then there is the Democrat Fifth Column. The anti-Russian crusade was triggered by the contempt heaped on Hillary Clinton by Putin, who much preferred the pragmatic anti-regime change Trump to the bellicose airhead who thought she was born to lead the world. Much like Obama, but less successful.

This is sheer madness. Furthermore, it is being promoted, whipped up, by our intelligence agencies who nevertheless fail to provide us any proof. So much of this slop they are serving up is pure lurid imagination, like the slimy story sold to his business patrons by the ex-spy (and now we know why he is an ex-spy) Steele. Real intelligence analysts scoff at the entire “Russia hacked the DNC and Podesta!” story. There isn’t a shred of credible proof that was ever presented; the original source of this dope was some shadowy character on the black side of the CIA; the FBI never examined the DNC servers. They took the word of some private company, and used this to spin out a fantasy. It is repugnant. Our intelligence services are corrupted and seriously.

The two memes, that Russia is a major threat to the world and that they stole the US election for the evil Donald Trump, could bring an end to our system of government. We have reached a point where the rotten brats brought up in our indoctrination camps, aka public education, think a one-party dictatorship is a good thing, but only if they are it. Otherwise, “by any means necessary.”

Here is what I want to see. I want to see the immigration raids continue relentlessly. I want to see the leakers tracked down and arrested and held without bail pending trial. I want an investigation of John Brennan and Mike Morell. I want an investigation into Soros funding of the rampant violence. I want both the Clinton server crimes and the Clinton Foundation crimes investigated. And I want to see the back of the Clintons (despite those ugly big saggy asses).

I usually have been a few years ahead of the curve in my predictions, although this year is a real drag on my average. But I’ll venture this. We are headed into a deliberately provoked civil war. Prepare for it.

For Christ’s sake, the Preppers were right.

 

 

 


Rogues in the Rogue State

He left out, “we lie.”

There are many people in this world who are celebrating as our country collapses around us, egged on toward civil war by the far left that now controls the Democrat party and most of our youth through the educational system. These proud socialists were deprived of what they think they deserved, and know they wanted — the election of that crook Hillary Clinton. They wanted and were thwarted from having enough time in power to change the whole US landscape and make it the new USSR. This transformation was to have been Obama’s real legacy. The Dems didn’t care if Clinton was a monstrosity of corruption, the voice of Goldman Sachs “for eight years,” dressed for free by Ralph Lauren, a hateful greedy woman who despised almost everybody and certainly Barack Obama, a manipulator and liar extraordinaire. So what if she was the dread One Percent? So what if she was selling US foreign policy? She was one of the People, much like  Princess Diana. She would do what the People needed done for them. She would move forward the Obama legacy. She would punish the Deplorables in first order. Reeducation. Deportation. Execution. Ridicule.

One Party. One State. One Mind. Heavenly images were wafting around in the marijuana fumes when, kaboom, reality smacked the brats right in their smug, rich faces, or smug poor ones (the latter being by far the majority and the ones supposedly helped by the policies of the former). And now the grief-stricken, many would say maniacal, losers, having rolled around on the floor, having broken up many a political event with their tantrums and screams of fury, and having held their breath until they were blue in the face and NOBODY CARED — these miserable spawn are going to make us sorry.

They’re going to make us sorry by setting up a means of never again allowing a day to go by without casting doubt at home and abroad about America’s…tenability. They will do this through select intelligence agencies and what we formerly called, tongue-in-cheek, mainstream media, a non-stop barrage of scandals directly involving Trump. Trump being handed stolen election by Putin. Trump romping with whores, Trump romping with Putin, and Trump’s and Putin’s RUSSIAN WHORES PISSING ON OBAMA AND BUBBA’s love sack in Moscow! The more salacious details came thanks to a British ex-spy named Steele, who initially offered his claims to the Never Trumpers and likely John McCain, who in fact went flying off, little legs pumping, to give them to his dear friend Comey. The FBI inexplicably added that piece of absolutely unverified and unlikely “raw intelligence” to their report on Russian hacking, and then somehow it was leaked to the press, who amazingly ran with the story regardless of its lack of credentials. BuzzFeed said it wanted to “Let the public decide.” What idiots. FBI dossiers on innocent and guilty all contain massive amounts of rumors, malice and innuendos, supplied by your office mates, ex-spouses, and neighbors, which is why the files are not open to the public, which is not allowed “to decide.”

Mr. Steele obviously was passing off literary trash as intel to rich western businesses wanting to trade with Russia, when he could have been making millions in Hollywood’s light porn industry. Instead, he is now in hiding. It adds a nice Jason Bourne-ish touch to the CIA ruse. The rumor is that the Brit thinks Putin will assassinate him. But personally, I think the lawyers and his clients are who he’s hiding from.

As another bit of bile, the Dems, also referred to as the “Disloyal Opposition,” are going after the FBI director, the OTHER reason Hillary Clinton turned up such a huge loser. The Dems will do as much damage to Comey as possible in the hope he will do the “patriotic” thing and resign or commit suicide from shame (à la Vince Foster). At a minimum, they can cook up an “impeachment” campaign that will dog Comey until the end of his term. This is nuts, since I too wanted to give Comey a kick in the ass for helping Hillary Clinton. How could both sides think Comey was against us?

(An aside: how on earth can the FBI seriously claim all these things relating to a hack of DNC servers when it was denied direct access to the DNC’s compromised servers? That was where all the conspiracy theory started, with claims from a private company that were never verified by any intelligence agency through direct examination. All the rest of the accusations spring from the initial “conclusion” that Russia hacked the DNC. As far as I’m concerned, it isn’t proven. Nothing they are claiming is proven. And worst of all it smells like special ops, black ops, lies and misdirection.)

So what is the overall picture? At home, the Dems have passed from mere annoyance with Wikileaks revelations (“recycled rumors that aren’t impacting Hillary’s polling numbers or her chances to be the next US president”) to claiming these revelations threw the election and were stolen and made public by none other than Arch Villain Vlad Putin. Everything to prove it can be found on the dark side of the CIA, which means it’s too secret for Americans to see.

Even worse, now we’re sending quite large troop contingents to Russia’s border, which is called “Poland’s border” in NATO-land. This is window-dressing to help the stupid American public realize how imperiled we are by ONE MAN — us and all the Europeans too.

And the end result — you can hear it starting already, only less tentative than ever: Donald Trump is not a legitimate president. Any action to keep him from the White House is justified.

Let me put it on the record here: if somebody tries to assassinate Trump, I’d put all of Hollywood under arrest. And then I’d build that wall going up around a house in Kalorama a little higher.

 

 


America, the Ridiculous

I write while the US of A is in mid-throes of anti-Russian madness. Russia, if the increasingly demented members of the US politocracy are to be believed, is the cause of every ill in the United States and the entire rest of the world that is not friends with VLADIMIR PUTIN (cue: Jaws music). The Russians caused Brexit, which nobody tumbled to until after the Russians got Donald Trump elected to the presidency, when the scales fell from their eyes and they saw pretty  much everywhere the hand of Satan, aka Vlad. The wicked Russian released ill-gotten information snatched (supposedly) straight from the Dems themselves. The stolen goods were rich with evidence of corruption and wrongdoing, ethnic contempt and contempt for Americans — and not one word of it was ever denied. But the culprit isn’t the corrupt nasty folks led by Hillary and Bill Clinton. No, the culprit is, of course, Russia. How dare Russia lift the veil on all that crime? If indeed Russia had anything to do with it, and there is precious little evidence of this claim.

This is the last act from the Theater of Brattiness best exemplified by its icon and champion, a man from nowhere with a lot of sly self-promotion but not a shred of depth or wisdom. He was the ultimate empty suit kept afloat by ego. I imagine he sails off (not too far! Kalorama!) to billions paid into a variety of secret accounts by such as Soros and Buffett. Maybe I’m wrong! Maybe I’m the only one who thinks he was a robot paid for by the elite to push globalization and even more unimaginable wealth for the unimaginably wealthy.

But by the way, even if we all know that the latest bit of buffoonery — the explusion of 35 Russian secret operatives and adding some more Russian institutions to the sanctions list — can be easily reversed by Trump (and should be), it all leaves a very nasty taste in Russian mouths. In particular as the USG once again fails to provide evidence to support very tendentious claims of Russian interference in foreign elections, and US elections at that. The US itself of course has carried out and continues to carry out dirty ops to influence foreign elections, up to and including illegal wars (aka “bombing campaigns”). Just ask a Ukrainian, any Latin American, an Iraqi, maybe a Libyan. So from the Russian point of view, it’s just more US bullshit ordered by the Clown Brigade.

From my point of view, as well. First of all, we have the fact that the indictment against Russia and against Putin himself appears to have sprung full-blown from the forehead of the CIA. This US Temple of Lies has concocted more false stories than all the top tabloids combined. And fantasies concocted not only for distribution abroad, or just to the US public at large. They concoct false stories for their own employees, by funneling lies from the operations side to the analytical side, backed up by “highly credible source” gold stars. Then their own analysts churn out finished analysis coming to exactly the right conclusion for getting policy action from State and other brain-dead agencies, as the CIA would think and speak of them.

So, here is the way it is: with no new information, unless it might be a suddenly discovered CIA asset with the very information they were seeking, the CIA reconsiders earlier conclusions, made when it was assumed the US public was going to hail the Queen. Back then, the intel community concluded that the Russians could not be proven to have been the hackers of the DNC or Podesta. They didn’t even mention Wikileaks. But suddenly the CIA believes it does in fact have the evidence, right there before one’s eyes, abracadabra. Now we know practically the patronymics of the hackers, where they come from, who was behind them, and what that Master of the Game was aiming to do. The CIA issued two photos of guys who look mushroomy enough for the technogeek world, but I’m not sure it convinces me of anything other than that. The false analysis grounded in false facts is shared with all the other agencies, some of them notorious dupes with the analytical skill of gravel, and others much sharper if not always ethical. The latter would include the FBI, which wasn’t buying the CIA story until, I imagine, gobs of pressure came down on them. (Here’s a suspicion: that the polit kommisars at CIA felt justified in a made-up story helpful to the Democrats because in their fevered imagination Comey and arch-enemy FBI were on Trump’s side and cost the Dems the election. Excuse me while I cough up a hair-ball.) Both Wikileaks and the self-identified intermediary between the DNC and Wikileaks deny all such charges, but what do they know? Obviously they are in on it with Vlad and the Reds.

And of course now we have the response to Congressional and public demands for the evidence behind the anti-Russian actions by the US president. What  has been provided is a much condensed version of far denser bull-shit that offers no substantial evidence of Russian hacking, much less a link to Wikileaks. Most damning of all, it is prefaced with a disclaimer that essentially says, nobody in the intelligence community believes a word of this malarkey and we’re not taking the fall for it, so read it at your own peril.

Meanwhile, Vlad the Impaler is having a merry old Christmas and New Year’s. He is so well-seated internationally that he can afford to scoff at the expulsion of Russian diplomats and hold his retaliatory hand pending arrival of a grown-up at the White House. He even invited US diplomatic children to a wonderful Christmas celebration party at the Kremlin. But he knows the USG won’t allow those little kids to attend, it would be a rejection of Obama’s snit. So one day instead of someone saying, “when I was little I went to a Kremlin Christmas party and met the president of Russia!” — they will say “I didn’t go to the Kremlin Christmas party or meet the president of Russia.”

It is good that the days of the Dark Emperor (and I’m imbuing that with a spiritual rather than epidermal significance) are drawing to their sickly close, although he threatens to raise his battalions for future battle. But for the moment, let me give thanks to God, again and again, for destroying the plans these people had for us and giving us a small opening to redeem this country.

Happy New Year to all!

 

 


World War III — is your bunker ready?

Many months ago, I recall: the US-NATO engineered coup in Ukraine; the take-over of Crimea with its vitally important naval base by Moscow; and the start of WW III. In the meantime, the US has thrown in Syria and Russia has raised the bet.

At the time of the Ukrainian events, I told my eminence grise, my husband, that this was going to be very bad news for US-Russian relations. What does our country intend? Do they dare to claim they have more vital interests in Ukraine than Russia, birthed in Kiev, does?

He insisted that it would all blow over. Don’t worry.

Really, oh Master of My Universe?

Perhaps what he didn’t take into account was that the kindler, gentler USA that we of the elder generation recall from our history prior to “The Era of Permanent War” has bloated from world power to super-power to hegemon. We’re like the sweet home-town boy who went to Hollywood and morphed into an ignorant blathering egomaniac with a bloated face that shows traces of excessive drug use. When once we pitted our belief in the individual and his fundamental rights against those who were ruled by The State and sought global ideological and military leadership, did we ever suspect that, when all the sins of the Communists in the USSR were put paid, the ugly cancer would appear in our own country? Did anyone other than the left-wing mushrooms growing in the shit and darkness of our US universities imagine that one day some unseen clique would determine what we could say and believe? I sure didn’t.

And what sane person would have thought that the greatest boon to mankind, the collapse of the Soviet Union, would be for naught? Poor Russia: it looked to the US as some kind of forbidden Communist Era idol, rich and good, who would help Russia, too, escape the evils of its past. Instead the Harvard economic experts sent to help Russia’s masses concocted a system to screw the masses and enrich (themselves) and the oligarchs. Russia for a long time bowed and scraped, sure they must be mistaken and the US did not mean Russia ill. But then came the rapid expansion of NATO to Russian borders, and the insults, and needless provocations. What is one to do when confronted with an irredeemably hostile party?

I regret to say that my once high-minded nation fell into the trap of egotism and relatively easy military victories over barely defended countries. As the rest of the world oohed and aahed over the arrogant messianic US aggression and the subsequent imposition of incompetent governments and unpalatable ideologies, Americans were lulled into the idea that the world was our oyster, and if there was a pearl in there, it belonged to us. And so we bombed away and bombed at will and told the world we were making everybody safer. Lots of countries doubted or outright disbelieved that promise, but they, too had no power. And so the US rolled on. It forgot its old virtues and its old two feet solidly on the ground, and flew with its big Air Force into the skies of other countries. It killed the young and the old, the guilty and the innocent. Collateral damage and pin-point strikes. Shock and awe. All for world democracy. And peace.

But while we were preening ourselves in that false mirror of world admiration, which lasts as long as the last victory, other nations were taking stock. They saw that their cultures, and their values, and their children were at risk from the rising Hegemon. Some of them were already being punished for their recalcitrant rejection of the Hegemon’s demands, and so, already deprived, they tightened their belts and directed their treasury from material satisfaction to vital national defense. They fattened their armies and moved them into offensive position. They added to their nuclear arsenals and made their own alliances. If they were to be assaulted, it would be a fight to the end.

Our course has strayed from the virtues of humility and decency to that of a demanding, brutal dictator. Maybe I’m just a sulker, you might object, spoiled by so many years of good governance and avoidance of war. But here is what I see. A government of the USA that brays to the whole world and its diversity of nations and cultures: You don’t agree? Bombs away! You don’t agree? Send arms to terrorists to bring the war to them in their beds! May their children come home to them in body bags! Let us teach them a little lesson. By the way — those words were picked from the recent announcements from our military-industrial complex, and specifically Admiral John Kirby (surprise — the STATE DEPARTMENT spokesman) and Mr. Morell of the CIA.  Seems our State Department got lost somewhere there in the conversion from a country to a Hegemon.

This is the language of the new diplomacy, brought to you by the likes of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and her clique of war hawks.

BREAK: FLASH TO THE US IN THE MIDST OF A CRUCIAL ELECTION

Today we heard the latest nonsense from the political scum. We learned that Trump talks dirty when he talks to show-biz folks off camera. We also heard that Hillary Clinton has enshrined her utter duplicity in the slogan “For every policy, a public and private face!” And, honestly folks, people are more aghast at Donald’s high-testosterone maleness than they are at the plain and simple fact that Hillary thinks lying to the public is a service.

So while the nukes are moved into position, the American public doesn’t say: who will keep us from this mad course? Who will turn his face from a senseless confrontation that serves only narrow political and economic interests? Who will save the lives of our children and grandchildren? Who is willing to share the globe with other powers and who wants to take us to war to gain absolute control?

Apparently our answer is: no dirty talk in the White House. Cigars in unspeakable places, yes. Dirty words, no. Corrupt and felonious women, yes. Politically incorrect males, no.

I expect that felon will be our next president, but I’m afraid it’s too late for her as far as I’m concerned. I don’t believe in the US presidency. I don’t believe in the GOP. And I sure don’t believe in a country determined to drag us all into Armageddon.

 

 

 


Vote the War Party! Vote Hillary!

I am largely resigned to all the things that I fear are to come. These start with an effective one-party takeover of the USG, the rewriting of all laws and rules (including those governing changes to the Constitution) to make them ideologically correct, and legislative and judicial branches marching in step with the Executive in foisting on us a State Political Philosophy. The processes already begun by the left will go at a faster pace — from the spread of mandatory unionism to vast State control over the media (including and especially the internet), from mandatory voting to suppression of religious expression. There will be no demurring from the State position, as both the legislature and the judiciary will be firmly under the control of the far left. Ruth Bader Ginsberg could give you a lecture on how “n’sync” the lefties on the Supreme Court are with the world’s progressives. These new justices don’t care if you know they have already decided cases not before them, just as the faux journalists don’t care if you call them propagandists. Biased, and proud of it!

The other worry that I fear will be realized is that a Clinton presidency would lead to heightened conflict and even war with Russia, in Syria certainly and perhaps in Ukraine, as well. The USG has already trained and armed Kiev’s special forces who only recently tried to infiltrate saboteurs into the military facilities in Crimea, in the course of which they lost their lives. The US and Kiev of course denied it all, calling it a provocation by Russia. The incident ratcheted up tensions in eastern Ukraine, with Russia’s proxies fighting the US proxies; and it also expedited Moscow’s delivery of state-of-the-art anti-air systems and other sophisticated military hardware to the peninsula. Like it or not, Russia owns Crimea and within a few short years, it will be a major military port bristling with all sorts of armament and technology. Anybody who plans to wage battle in the Black Sea should be prepared for total war.

Kiev’s provocations, just like those of Georgia, are oil poured on an already volatile situation. And it is this kind of reckless behavior that the US is encouraging and facilitating. (I still think the Georgian president was nudged to take action in S. Ossetia by the American military.) Our course is fraught with danger, but it does not deter the unholy alliance of the neocons and the corrupt Clinton camp in pushing for Ukraine membership in NATO. After all, it was her husband who made the fateful decision to enlarge NATO, why should she not be the one that takes it right to Moscow’s doorstep and over it into war? Expect Mrs. Clinton to deepen US-Ukraine military collaboration in ways that are directly threatening to Russian national security and, as a result, to our own.

In Syria, rumor has it that Madame’s first order of business will be to undertake regime change, Russia be damned. If this is true, we should all take to the streets to make our strenuous disagreement palpable. (But it won’t happen.) Russia is not going to back down even in the face of NATO aggression (and of course there will be no UNSC resolution legitimizing US aggression). Moscow will reinforce its military at Latakia and increase its air sorties. The Syrians have already given Russia use of a second base, and now the Chinese are getting more involved, as well. They will be working overtime to bring under the control of Damascus as great a swath of Syrian territory as possible, bombing anything that moves and that includes Americans. It would then be a shooting war.

Hillary Clinton wants a war. She wants to pull off a victory somewhere, this American cowgirl, that would dwarf anything Obama did. Alas for all of us, the places that are easy to bomb and take over with proxies have already been bombed and taken over. They are the rubble you see strewn across the Middle East. What remains are the nations that created nuclear arsenals precisely to prevent an aggressor from attempting, directly or indirectly, an assault on their sovereignty. Those nations include China and Russia and (probably) Iran, all regional powers that have resisted US dominion and demands. In the real world, one would think, “how can we reconcile our needs and interests so as to avoid war?” But I don’t think Hillary operates in the real world. She operates wherever it is that she communes with Eleanor Roosevelt.

And how could I not mention that weasel-faced jerk Mike Morrell, formerly of the CIA and now a Hillary adviser. (This is a good fit, as both the CIA and Hillary Clinton absolutely require that employees have the ability to lie glibly and sell any story as the truth.) Morell formerly condemned Hillary for such negligence in handling of classified information that he was absolutely certain the illegally-used server had been hacked by multiple sources. Now he thinks she’d be a steady hand at the helm. Of course, here’s what Morell thinks about icing our supposed foes and actual rivals:

“What they need is to have the Russians and Iranians pay a little price,” Morell said. “When we were in Iraq, the Iranians were giving weapons to the Shia militia, who were killing American soldiers, right? The Iranians were making us pay a price. We need to make the Iranians pay a price in Syria. We need to make the Russians pay a price.” Morell said the killing of Russians and Iranians should be undertaken “covertly, so you don’t tell the world about it, you don’t stand up at the Pentagon and say ‘we did this.’ But you make sure they know it in Moscow and Tehran.”

Judge for yourself. Who is a greater danger to continued life on the planet? Donald Trump who wants to collaborate with Russia to defeat ISIS in Syria; who wants to toss that disastrous Utopian fantasy, nation-building, overboard; who thinks that conflict is the last resort, not the first? Or a woman who has surrounded herself with the worst of the war hawks and the military-industrial complex, in which the lackey Morell is but a small cog? The latter group is drooling at the chance to go to war against Russia, and I predict they will try a two-prong approach in both Syria and Ukraine. I think they are incredibly thick and arrogant and I also think they are extremely dangerous. Thanks to the Dems and the GOP elite, both in bed with the war industrialists, we have a military so light and fast that it can destroy anything. What we don’t have is a competent diplomatic corps, a wise or truthful government, or any clue what the hell we are doing. How many countries do we have to destroy and leave destroyed for decades to come before we come to our senses?

Trump needs to push Clinton on her plans for Syria, and ask whether the rumor of a planned January 2017 war against Assad is correct. He needs to press her on her plans for further expansion of NATO. He needs to demand to know what weaponry has been shipped to Ukraine and what training we are providing. He needs to ask if the US military or NATO military are advising Ukraine on its military provocations against Russia. He needs to expose all the corrupt ties between certain Democrats and the Ukrainian US-imposed regime. These are all critical matters and the Psychopathic Liar should not be allowed to skate without warning us what she has up her sleeve.


The Liar tells one too many

When it comes to lying, almost everybody in Washington practices it daily. Most recently, Ted Cruz lashed out at Mitch McConnell for outright lying to other Republican senators about side deals relating to the Highways bill and the TPP. But the Blue Ribbon for Most Consistent and Outrageous Deviousness goes to Hillary Clinton.

I won’t bother to go back through her history  of lies, like landing in Sarajevo under fire (we wish!). I’ll just pick up mid-whopper with the saga of Hillary Clinton’s private server and all that classified information she sent out over its unsecured pathways. According to Clinton, she never sent any classified information over that electronic beam. The fuss by the intelligence bozos is just a squabble over exactly how much information should be classified. It’s simply bureaucratic quibbling. The guys doing the quibbling, by the way, are the Inspectors General of both the Intelligence Community and (no doubt with deep reluctance) the Department of State. The Intelligence Community includes all the various intelligence agencies, offices and departments of all the different parts of the United States Government and the US military. Their foot soldiers and electronic helpers collect the information we use to determine policies and actions. Sometimes the sources are human beings at risk of immediate execution if discovered. Sometimes the information is sucked up from intercepts and eavesdropping; those sources would be shut down quickly if the government involved realized where the leaks were. This and many more similar considerations are behind the classification system. This isn’t a matter of personal opinion or New Age theory. It isn’t a matter of position or ambition.

Here is a clue for the Smartest Woman in the World: if you are pulling your information from top secret code-word protected USG information, your paraphrased conveyance of the information is classified at the same level as the original information. Mrs. Clinton wants us to believe that she had the authority to take that highly classified information and send it as if it were instructions to pick up her dry-cleaning. Even the CIA’s top officials have had to admit that the information that went forth over Mrs. Clinton’s Personal Server is certainly now in the hands of the people we have on our enemies list, like Russia and China. (Message to Russia and China: give us a hand, here, and mail those messages to the  US Congress c/o Trey Gowdy.)

Yesterday I saw a Fox news banner running across the bottom of the screen, grossly misinforming the US public that “retroactively classified information went out in Clinton’s emails.” Here’s another news flash (listen up, Fox News): what she sent out was not retroactively classified. It was classified at the time she put it in her messages. Classification doesn’t change or lapse until some date 20 or 50 or 100 years from the date of origination unless there is some legal process to treat the information otherwise. So just slapping a U for unclassified on the top doesn’t in any substantive manner change the classification of the material. What the security mavens did was restore the original classifications to the information, thus making all those Clinton messages seen and handled by people such as her personal lawyer “classified.”

Here is the crux of the case:

Mrs. Clinton did know all about classifications, she would have been thoroughly briefed on that aspect of her job when she started it, not to mention from her days in the Senate. She knew, as she said, that you can’t send classified material via private servers. One must thus conclude that she changed the classification of the information from Alpha Sigmoid Eyes Only to “anybody except Americans can have a look” knowingly, specifically and deliberately; and that she did so in order to retain full and exclusive control over all her messages sent over a four-year period and allow her to purge any that would reflect poorly upon her as a potential US president. Mrs. Clinton then obliterated many, many thousands of USG-owned messages, insisting they were only about Bill’s affairs. I mean, about Chelsea’s multi-million dollar wedding.

Tell it to the judge, Hillary.

I am delighted to say that the entire intelligence community has jumped down her throat in response. You can’t just call something something it isn’t (other than calling a  man a woman, a woman a man, or a white a black.) You can’t paraphrase your country’s most closely guarded secrets, throw them to the winds, and expect anybody will buy the theory that the classified portions were somehow “laundered.” (That’s something else Mrs. Clinton is good at, laundering.) In any case, the die is now cast. The investigations will begin, and as we saw, probably from the very first message they reviewed, the evidence will show the woman’s guilt. Saying “I didn’t know” is no defense under the law, Mrs. Clinton. I bet you know that, too. Between Trey Gowdy’s hearings on Benghazi in the House and this new investigation, I think Hillary’s big fat goose is cooked. Look in that haggard face if you can stand it and you will see there the realization that she tried one scam too many and told one lie too far. Old Joe is in the bull-pen, limbering up.
