No. Putin Did Not Try to Thwart Hillary’s Candidacy Like She Did to Him in 2012. He Didn’t Have To

by Scott Creighton

Pussy Riot™  mission statement: When the world is being neoliberalized as fast as possible and the masters of the universe demand tribute from those seeking a place at the table, no effort to assist in that endeavor , no matter how sophomoric or insipid, no matter how ridiculous, no matter how contrived, shall go unrewarded. And Pussy Riot™ will be there to cash in

Not that long ago President Obama said that Russia and President Putin had tried to influence the outcome of our election process and that it was “unacceptable” behavior for a nation to attempt to influence the democratic process of other nations. Forget for a second that his evidence was so laughable that the Department of Homeland Security, the agency that cobbled it together, posted a disclaimer on the first page of the report that said it didn’t stand by a single shred of “proof” in it’s own report:

this report is provided “as is” for informational purposes only. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) does not provide any warranties of any kind regarding any information contained within.”

Let’s also forget for a moment the troubling rise of the New McCarthyism in America and the lynch-mob mentality that goes along with it.

Russia did not attempt to influence our election. They did not “hack” the DNC, Hillary Clinton’s illegal private email server nor the email account of the perpetually corrupt John Podesta. Even if they did, which they didn’t, all they did was expose the truth about these three deeply tainted entities. No one has disputed the authenticity of the leaks. They stand as an accurate representation of the level of corruption that exists in the fake left that is the unDemocratic Party of America these days. This is a footnote that gets lost in the discussion far too often these days.

Which leads me to ask one simple question: since when is it considered “unacceptable” behavior to expose the truth about corruption at the highest ranks in the American political system?

Oh, that’s right. President Peace Prize made it a priority to wage war on whistle-blowers throughout the duration of his tenure.

For all the McCarthyite efforts being put forward by the breathless ladder-climbers of the corporate propaganda mills which pass for “news organizations” these days I am often awestruck by those who seem to wish to demand their guests present a kind of American exceptionalism when it comes to comparisons between this fake news story about Russia “hacking” our democracy and the altogether too real history of our State Department and the CIA doing the exact same thing to other countries across the globe. The hypocrisy is simply stunning.  And that is  when a guest has the audacity to bring up said history, which doesn’t happen very often.

And that is to say nothing of Hillary Clinton’s effort to use “smart power” to thwart Vladamir Putin’s reelection in 2012. In the corporate media the silence is deafening on that subject.

The “ISIS™” Operandi: What is Happening in Libya? Part 1

by Scott Creighton

First we review the Modus operandi, or the “method of operations” of President Peace Prize and NATO

When the people got tired of our puppet dictator in Yemen, Ali Abdullah Saleh, a legitimate people’s revolution removed him from power and in his place they allowed a phony, one candidate “election” to take place in 2012 (orchestrated by Hillary Clinton’s State Department) and they got another puppet of the West, Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

Once it was clear he was no different that the previous dictator, in Sept of last year, the Houthis from the west rose up and took control of the nation, evicting our puppet ruler and effectively taking control of the country.

The current government of Yemen is deemed “illegitimate” by Western/NATO interests while they fully back the current neo-Nazi, fascist government in Ukraine which came to power via a US-backed bloody color revolution last year as well.

These same Western interests also support the illegitimate junta currently ruling Thailand which also came to power in a US backed coup in 2014.

West tries to use extremism for color revolutions in Russia — Federation Council speaker

from TASS News

The West uses political, ethnic and religious extremism as a geopolitical instrument, including for trying to organize “color revolutions” in Russia, Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko said on Wednesday.

“Extremism is used as a geopolitical instrument, for reshaping the spheres of influence, overthrowing regimes undesirable for some countries by the means of organizing ‘color revolutions’,” Matviyenko said. “The West makes attempts to organize them [‘color revolutions’] in Russia as well,” she added. These efforts are directed at “discrediting the authorities and destabilizing the situation in Russia, and using both extremist elements and opposition for that,” the speaker noted.

“The Russian government does not plan to embark on a course of ‘tightening screws’ and suppressing ‘dissent’,” Matviyenko stressed. “The authorities are ready for dialogue with the opposition, they will continue to develop partnership with the civil society. Such dialogue and such partnership are important,” she said. However, “it is useless to start discussions with those who works on orders from abroad, in the interests of a foreign country or foreign countries,” Matviyenko added.

“Cartalucci” is at it Again: Praising the Despotic Junta in Thailand and Blaming the Left for the Recent Gladio Op

by Scott Creighton (H/T tommyknocker1)

“Thaksin’s regime is going. It is a cancer, you can choose to pray and wave the banner of democracy like children, we’ll choose to cut it out.” Tony Cartalucci

” the empty dream of international democracy” “Tony Cartalucci”

“the circus that is modern “democracy.” ” “Tony Cartalucci”

In Thailand, the illegal junta that came to power last May is doing everything they can to make sure they remain in power in perpetuity.

To that end,  the junta, officially called the “National Council for Peace and Order”, seek to impeach the former elected Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, who has already been removed from office.

Impeachment will mean she can’t run for office for 5 years which will effectively ban the most popular political party from participation in the next round of “elections” which the junta claims wont take place til 2016 or so.

The people of Thailand understand that ploy and are understandably upset by it. So, with the expectation of large protests on the horizon, protests that have been made illegal under the rule of the current despots, the Thai junta announced recently that they would be cracking down on all of them and banning media coverage of any events that unfold.

To justify those actions, it appears the military thugs have staged a couple “terrorist” acts which will provide ample pretext for the coming repression of the political majority that has won every election in Thailand since 2001. So don’t be caught blogging any pertinent questions regarding who committed these acts of terrorism. Doing so will get you brought before Big Brother, General Prayuth Chan-ocha, head of the Thai military junta, for some “reeducation”

As he (they) have done in the past, “Tony Cartalucci” is busy white-washing the actions of the illegal junta and blaming the leftist for the Operation Gladio styled acts which have recently took place. As usual when it comes to military juntas across the globe, “Tony’s” evidence is spurious at best and doesn’t hold up to the slightest investigation.

Tarpley and “Cartalucci”… Meet al-Sisi’s New Economic Adviser, Tony Blair

by Scott Creighton

For quite sometime, Webster Tarpley along with the hearts and minds psyop called “Tony Cartalucci”, have been steadily praising the virtues of one Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the neoliberal Obama administration’s latest client regime in Egypt.

Despite the fact that he rose to power only after meeting with U.S. state department and then did so with the same sort of brutal “protesters” we saw in places like Syria, Libya and most recently in Ukraine and Thailand, Mr. Tarpley and “Cartalucci” both continued to present al-Sisi as some sort of counter-IMF, anti-U.S. hero doing the work of the masses. It has long been obvious that nothing could be further from the truth.

They continued supporting Sisi after he sucked-up to Israel, the U.S. war department and Saudi Arabia. Tarpley and “Cartalucci” continued supporting him (often writing screeds calling out the thousands of alternative journalists who could see al-Sisi for the Mubarak-styled monster he was) even after he slaughtered over 2,500 to gain power and then jailed 20,000 others to keep it prior to his sham “election”

Today news has come out from several sources that Tony Blair is going to be al-Sisi’s new economic adviser, telling him how and where Egypt should invest and helping bring all those lucrative multinational trade deals to impose on the people of Egypt along the way.

Is there a mea-culpa expected in the near future for the Sisi twins? Don’t count on it. Shills don’t do take-backs. They aren’t allowed.

Hagel Demands Fake Elections in Thailand NOW! (not return of elected government)

by Scott Creighton

The fascist neoliberal state of the “Shining City on the Hill” loves fake elections. Loves ’em. Real elections suck. They learned that lesson in Chile and Palestine… and Egypt and Thailand and Russia…

Fake elections provide the outward appearance of “democracy” if you don’t look too close, while simultaneously providing that all too important “stability” our “national interests” demand.

Take for example the recent ‘election” in the Ukraine which was brought about after a violent coup of U.S. state department backed neo-Nazis.

Take for example the recent “election” in Egypt, brought about by an even more brutal and violent military junta, backed by the state departments as well.

Does anyone here remember the one candidate “election” held in Yemen after popular uprising force our puppet dictator out of office? U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton congratulated the people of Yemen “on today’s successful presidential election

Heck, we threw a couple fake elections over on this side of the pond, right here in our own “homeland” not that long ago. 2000? 2004? Help America Vote Act? Diebold? Supreme Court? Fake protesters in Florida? Ring any bells?

And just look at all that “freedom” those fake elections brought us.

Well today, our glorious leaders are calling for snap “elections” in Thailand in order to bring about a “return to democracy”

Now, notice, they aren’t telling the illegal junta to step down and return the country to the hands of the previous ELECTED government. Oh no. That won’t do.

What kind of ass-backwards regime change would that be?

Thai military detains politicians and activists

from The Guardian

Thailand‘s military has detained more than 150 politicians and activists and banned them from leaving the country, a day after the army chief seized power in a coup declared necessary to “restore order and normality” in the politically divided nation.

The group includes members of the prominent Shinawatra family, including former premier Yingluck Shinawatra, who was forced to step down two weeks ago.

Those disobeying the army’s summons were warned that they would be arrested and prosecuted, the army’s new governing body, the National Peace and Order Maintaining Council (NPOMC), said.

Yingluck arrived at the Royal Thai Army base on Friday morning in a bulletproof vehicle surrounded by bodyguards, local media reported, but left after 30 minutes for another army facility, according to the Associated Press.
