Trump and Tillerson Look a Lot Like Obama and Hillary When it Comes to Their Neoliberal Color Revolution in Venezuela

by Scott Creighton

Ask yourself this: who’s interests are fake lefties like Rachel Maddow really serving when they endlessly rant about made up “Russian collusion” conspiracy theories that are baseless and will eventually end up going no where? The answer might just surprise you.

President Trump (that’s a clue by the way), who once said on the campaign trail that the U.S. shouldn’t be in the business of telling other countries how to run their governments, has chimed in on the ongoing neoliberal color revolution in Venezuela. As expected, his campaign rhetoric is vastly different than his stated administration policy.

“The White House has threatened Venezuela with potential “strong and swift economic actions” if the country’s socialist government imposes a plan to rewrite the constitution and consolidate the ruling party’s power — a plan that more than 7 million people rejected in a vote over the weekend.

“Yesterday, the Venezuelan people again made clear that they stand for democracy, freedom, and rule of law,” the White House said in a statement on Monday evening. “Yet their strong and courageous actions continue to be ignored by a bad leader who dreams of becoming a dictator.”

Organizers said they hoped Sunday’s symbolic referendum would discourage President Nicolas Maduro’s planned national election on July 30 to pick a 545-member special assembly that would have the ability to build a new constitution.” Fox News July 17 2017

First of all, those “strong and courageous actions” he’s talking about basically include terrorism on the streets of local cities and towns as the regime change thugs burn 50 tons of emergency food provisions to keep people starving and desperate, bomb the Supreme Court building, loot and murder various officials and/or government supporters in hopes that they can create enough chaos, enough international headlines, so Big Brother America can justify getting involved even more than they already are. This is a formula for these kinds of “courageous actions” we have instigated across the world… most recently in Ukraine when the Soros faction hired neo-Nazis to do the same when their elected government decided to reject EU membership and were drifting closer and closer to a union with Russia.

As the Trump administration talks in the language of globalist double-speak like so many of it’s predecessors, fact is, these free-marketeers in Venezuela who have taken to the streets with violence are not anything close to a majority, they are just the angry, fascist, violent minority… and they operate in the full knowledge that nothing they do will be covered negatively by the international press since they are fascist as well.

President Trump’s Mouthpiece at UN Demands Russia Force Crimeans Back into the Hands of the Brutal Neo-Nazi Government of Ukraine

by Scott Creighton

Yesterday, President Trump’s UN Ambassador Nikki Haley said “Crimea is part of Ukraine. Our Crimea-related sanctions will remain in place until Russia returns control over the peninsula to Ukraine,”

“She added that her country was seeking to improve relations with Moscow, at the same time asserting that Crimea’s reunification with Russia was “aggression,” “occupation” and “military intervention.” TASS

The people of Crimea and Sevastopol held a referendum on March 6th, 2014 in which over 80% of the voting age populations turned out and it resulted in over 90% of the votes in both areas were to rejoin the Russian Federation and get away from the brutality of the new, neo-Nazi, Obama created government in Ukraine.

The revisionist historians claim Russia “invaded and occupied” Crimea prior to the referendum. This is an old lie that was thoroughly debunked years ago but still persists today, unfortunately. And apparently it is now being repeated by the Trump administration of “CHANGE” (sound familiar?)

Ukraine – Coup Government Tries To Sabotage U.S.-Russia Rapprochement

from Moon of Alabama

Fighting in east Ukraine has restarted. This is an attempt by “deep state” forces to prevent any rapprochement between the U.S. and Russia under the new Trump administration.

The west-Ukrainian forces under command of the coup government of President Poroshenko started a large attack against the Russian supported Ukrainian self-defense forces in Donetsk and Lugansk governate.

A ceasefire arranged after the Minsk II agreement provided for demilitarized zones along a line of separation. The Ukrainian government has so far avoided to fulfill the Minsk II agreement that would allow a reuniting of the country. An OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine (SMM), which includes officers from NATO countries as well as Russia, is supervising the ceasefire and issues daily reports.

On January 26 the SMM reported:

The SMM recorded more ceasefire violations [1] in Donetsk region, including about 420 explosions, compared with 228 in the previous reporting period. More than 160 explosions were recorded around the Svitlodarsk area, with exchanges of fire also recorded around Avdiivka and Yasynuvata.

The Mission revisited a Ukrainian Armed Forces permanent storage site, whose location corresponded with the relevant withdrawal lines and observed that 12 tanks (T-64) and four mortars (2B9 Vasilek, 82mm) were missing, as previously noted.

The SMM followed up on reports of a blockade of a railway track near government-controlled Hirske. The railway leads towards the “LPR”-controlled settlements of Donetskyi and Sentianivka (formerly Frunze) (49 and 44km west of Luhansk, respectively). The Mission had observed a train travelling east through Donetskyi on 23 January. The SMM observed that the tracks had been blocked by tree trunks under a bridge on the southern edge of the settlement. About 20 unarmed men wearing camouflage clothing told the Mission that they were veterans from former volunteer battalions. The SMM observed a tent near the blockade site.

The observations on the 26th pointed to the preparation of a full attack which was launched on January 28:

The SMM recorded fewer ceasefire violations in Donetsk region between the evenings of 27 and 28 January compared with the previous reporting period (including about 330 explosions compared with about 520).[1] In the following 24 hours, however, the SMM recorded over 2,300 explosions, primarily in the Avdiivka-Yasynuvata-Donetsk airport area.

The SMM observed that the intense artillery barrage was launched north to south originating from the government held area.

The NAZI volunteer battalions from west-Ukrainian Galicia are spearheading the attack. There is ongoing fighting with intense artillery usage on several points along the ceasefire line (map). One main battle ground is the city of Avdeevka in the demilitarized zone north-west of Donetzk city…

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.

Obama’s Russian Sanctions Have Nothing to Do With Hacking: It’s About Syria, Not the FBI’s “Grizzly Lie” Report

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Putin refuses to retaliate against Obama’s bullshit instigation attempt.

Obama’s “Grizzly Lie” report is indeed a grizzly step toward total war across the Middle East and perhaps the entire world.

Since Russia and Syria were finally able to oust Obama’s “moderate” terrorists from Aleppo and liberate the city from it’s 5-year-long regime change siege, the Russian ambassador to Turkey has been murdered in cold blood, a Russian plane on route to Syria has mysteriously crashed into the Black Sea and now… President Peace Prize has evicted 35 Russian diplomats from U.S. soil and imposed some meaningless sanctions on a number of other Russian agencies and individuals. The claims are that we had nothing to do with the first two incidents and Obama’s actions against Russia are as “retaliation” against their supposed efforts at influencing our elections here in the states.

Of course, our intelligence agencies can’t very well take credit for killing ambassadors anymore than they can admit downing planes (Flight MH17 comes to mind). Wars have started for less and CIA Directors have been fired for meddling like this in the past (Bay of Pigs?). Not very often, but it has been done.

By the same token, President Obama can’t be seen as punishing Russia for driving al-Qaeda from eastern Aleppo. There’s that whole “providing aid and comfort” law to think about.

But the truth is there if you read a little between the lines… or if you just bother to actually read the lines instead of just listening to the lying talking heads giving their spin jobs on the MSM.

Mr. Obama said, and added that the United States acted after “repeated private and public warnings that we have issued to the Russian government, and are a necessary and appropriate response to efforts to harm U.S. interests in violation of established international norms of behavior.” New York Times

The expulsion of the 35 RussiansIt was unclear if they were involved in the hacking.”

closing of two waterfront estatesofficials declined to say whether they were specifically used in the election-related hacks.” New York Times

If they say it’s “unclear” if those expelled from the U.S. were involved in the hacking, that’s spinspeak for “they were not involved in the hacking

There have been no warnings coming from the United States to Russia about staying out of our election process. The warnings President Obama is speaking of were regarding staying out of Syria and out of the way of our “national interests” over there.

Like the president, the Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, avoided getting his message muddied up in spinspeak as well. He made it quite clear yesterday that the sanctions and expulsions had nothing to do with hacking and everything to do with Russia interfering with our “national interests” abroad.

Russia does not share America’s interests. In fact, it has consistently sought to undermine them, sowing dangerous instability around the world. While today’s action by the administration is overdue, it is an appropriate way to end eight years of failed policy with Russia” Mediaite

Off the top of my head I imagine Ryan was speaking about Syria, Ukraine and BRICS but there could be other examples.

In Syria, Russia helped stop our regime change operation that intended to bring along with it the Qatar-Turkey pipeline and the creation of the western quarter of Greater Kurdistan.

In Ukraine our regime change operation took place immediately after the Ukrainian people decided they wanted no part of the European Union and the new IMF loans that came along with the deal.

And in regards to the BRICS nations… well, that speaks for itself.

And there are the interests of our neoliberal and Likudnik friends in London and Tel Aviv to think about as well.

These are the “national interests” Paul Ryan and President Obama speak of. They wont specify what they are because Americans are not likely to want to charge into global war over oil and banking hegemony since it’s their loved ones who will be fighting it, not Ryan’s or Obama’s. In fact, Sec. Kerry just lamented recently that it’s a “problem” that Americans are getting tired of sending their kids off to fight and die in these wars. You think I’m kidding?

And a lot of Americans don’t believe we should be fighting and sending young Americans over to die in another country. That’s the problem.” Sec. of State John Kerry

That’s the problem. We’re tired of sending our children to fight and die in other countries for the lies of corrupt people and the profits of our “national interests”. That, according to the Secretary of State in the Obama regime, is “the problem”.

Gee. I guess they need more motivation, huh? Lucky Larry been buying anymore buildings recently?

The New York Times Publishes More Lies About Ukraine in Baseless Hit-piece Against Donald Trump

by Scott Creighton

though they have yet to determine if he actually received the cash…” New York Times McCarthism Hit-piece on Donald Trump

It’s not listed as an opinion piece or even satire. It’s supposed to be news. All the news that’s fit to fabricate from the New York Times.

OBAMA 2

This allegation that Donald Trump’s campaign chair Paul Manafort took money to the tune of 12+ million bucks in illegal payments from President Viktor F. Yanukovych in Ukraine is ridiculous on it’s surface. When you dig a little deeper in the New York Times article (penned by ) what you find is a ludicrous counter-attack to Hillary’s own political corruption story, one designed to steal the headlines and relegate the story of her all-too-real systemic graft to the back pages.

“Handwritten ledgers show $12.7 million in undisclosed cash payments designated for Mr. Manafort from Mr. Yanukovych’s pro-Russian political party from 2007 to 2012, according to Ukraine’s newly formed National Anti-Corruption Bureau. Investigators assert that the disbursements were part of an illegal off-the-books system whose recipients also included election officials.” New York Times

Viktor Yanukovych was ousted in a U.S.-backed coup a couple years ago when the people of his country decided they didn’t want to be a part of the E.U. and the masters of the universe said that wasn’t to be allowed, like George Soros (see this as well) and Pierre Omidyar for example. Part of the deal they rejected was another crippling IMF “loan” and the subsequent austerity measures they demanded be imposed on the people in exchange for it.

 

  • Among the reasons Mr. Yanukovych turned away from signing political and trade accords with Europe in November was his unwillingness to carry out austerity measures and other reforms that the International Monetary Fund had demanded in exchange for a large assistance packageNew York Times

 

Yanukovych said “no” so of course, he had to go. Not only that, but his legacy and his life had to be soiled in perpetuity in the interests of the greater good (meaning the masters of the universe’s “greater good”) which makes him perfect fodder for this new bullshit anti-Trump hit-piece being put out by the New York Times.

Russian FSB prevents terrorist attack in Crimea prepared by Ukraine’s intelligence service

from TASS

The Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) has said it prevented terrorist attacks in Crimea prepared by the Ukrainian Defense Ministry’s main intelligence directorate.

“In the small hours of August 8, 2016 commando units of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry’s groups of saboteurs made two penetration attempts. Both were prevented by FSB units and cooperating agencies. The penetration attempts were accompanied by heavy fire from the neighboring country’s territory and Ukrainian armored vehicles. The fire exchange left one Russian military serviceman dead,” the FSB said.
