Russia

by -

Everyday the corporate media tries to tie Trump to the Russians, but what is the truth now that Russia is starting to bang the war drums?

First the Democrats blamed the DNC and Podesta email leaks on the Russians with no real evidence. There is still no concrete evidence that connects the Russian Government to the leaks.

Then the claims from the left started rolling in after the election that Russia helped throw the election in favor of Trump. Again there is no concrete evidence to suggest that Russia was involved or that it even happened.

Images of Putin and Trump in love have been spread through social media and even projected onto the side of a large building in NYC.

The corporate media is doing their best to frame Trump as a president with deep connections to Russia. Here is an example from CNN, they wrote about two Trump advisors and their alleged ties to the Russian government.

It is true that Trump’s second campaign manager, Paul Manafort, did have connections with Russia and was fired in the summer before the election. Michael Flynn was the other “top aide” that communicated regularly to Russians and as of Monday he is no longer involved in the Trump administration.

If you were to believe the corporate media blindly, then you would think the Russians helped Trump in the campaign, and then helped him win by rigging the election.

Here is the big problem.

In the past week, a Russian spy ship was spotted moving up the east coast monitoring sub stations, military bases and intercepting communications.

Putin was caught this week deploying new cruise missiles that violate an arms control treaty. The New York Times calling it “a major test for President Trump as his administration is facing a crisis over its ties to Moscow.”

Why would Russia become antagonistic with the United States if they just helped us elect Trump? Why are we not seeing more partnerships between the two countries? We are seeing just the opposite; Russia is getting more aggressive.

The corporate media is working so hard to frame Trump as a secret friend of Putin, they are missing the obvious signs of an escalation in tensions. They are even contributing to the tensions with their focus on the Russian connections.

Putin is smart, and he will use the press in America as propaganda in his country to rally support for his next political move and our corporate media is playing right into his hands. It seems they are helping Russia more than Trump.

On Friday, Counselor to the President Elect and pollster, Kellyanne Conway appeared on CNN with host Chris Cuomo to discuss “Russian Hacking.”

The segment turned into a heated throwdown between the two sides and is something you have to watch for yourself.

A week after President Obama expelled Russian diplomats from the United States over alleged, yet unproven hacking of John Podesta’s email account, Maryland Democrat Sen. Ben Cardin is pushing for sanctions against the former Soviet Union.

Cardin, who is the leading Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relation’s Committee is pushing for sanctions due to Russia’s meddling in the Ukraine and their support for the Assad regime in Syria.

Arguably, the Kremlin, led by Vladimir Putin has engaged in the same level of meddling in foreign affairs as the United States in recent years as neither nation has developed an understanding of Jeffersonian, non-interventionist policies.

Cardin’s proposal will be a “comprehensive bill that will provide congressional authorization for additional sanctions against Russia.”

A recent commenter on Liberty News Now explained that “all intelligence agencies agree, and that never happens!”

It has happened in the past during the lead up to the war and Iraq and the false and persistent claims that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction.

Last week, President Obama expelled Russian diplomats on 72-hour notice and within the last 48 hours, has deployed special forces troops to the Russian border.

Barack Obama’s main excuse for his behavior is the agreement of U.S. intelligence agencies in their assessment that the Kremlin “hacked” the Presidential Elections.

No proof has been made public to support the claim.

The main individual releasing the hacked data throughout the election was former hacker Julian Assange through the organization, WikiLeaks.

Assange has stated on numerous occasions that the source of the leaks emails from John Podesta’s gmail account were not from Russian sources.

President Elect Trump repeated those words in a tweet this morning saying:

The President Elect was scheduled to receive a security briefing to explain the alleged hacking on Wednesday, however, intelligence officials have delayed the briefing until Friday, setting off Donald Trump once again:

Vladimir Putin, the President of the Russian Federation, has refused to retaliate against the actions of Barack Obama, however, that was before the lame duck president deployed troops to the area, escalating tensions.

Yesterday, President Obama ordered the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats from the United States, with only 72-hour’s notice.

The expulsion affects 96 Russians, including toddlers and pre-schoolers who are forced to evacuate – many of whom have established homes in the U.S.

They are forced to pack up or abandon their belongings and head to the nearest airport.

Some families reported problems obtaining last minute tickets for extensive overseas travel, so the Kremlin responded by sending a plane for their citizens.

Moscow is calling it a “last ditch effort” by Barack Obama to provoke the Russian government.

The government also showed calm and reserve in not retaliating by kicking out U.S. diplomats stationed in Russia. Instead, the Russians announced they would “decide the future of relations” based upon the actions of President-Elect Trump.

Critics say that in the final months of his presidency, Barack Obama has acted like a man intent on starting a war.

In Syria, the Obama Administration has created such a mess that Sunni jihadist rebels have been backed by both al-Qaeda and the United States.

But the Sunni’s are fighting Shia Muslims that have also received support from the Obama Administration.

Both sides are reportedly using U.S. weapons and Russia is fighting along side the Shia’s, who are battling Obama-backed Sunni’s.

While it’s difficult to make sense of the foreign policy moves that have placed the United States literally exchanging gunfire with Moscow, the summary is this:

Obama backed and arguably created total chaos in Syria. The Russians stepped in to stop ISIS rebels (also backed by Obama), and now, in his final throws of governance, Obama is doubling down in his attempt to agitate Putin by disrupting Russian families without cause.

Obama’s newest excuse is the claim that Russia “hacked” the presidential elections.

To date, the Obama administration has offered no proof that the Russian Government was involved in the Wikileaks hacks or release of the Podesta emails.

Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange, has repeatedly explained that his information was not obtained from Russian sources.

Nonetheless, the Obama Administration, backed by House Speaker Paul Ryan, continues to try and pick a fight with Vladamir Putin.

Critics of Obama have said the lame-duck president’s actions are comparable to a mentally disabled child poking an MMA fighter in the leg.

In Roman ruler Julius Caesar’s account of the Gallic Wars, written in the ancient manuscript Commentarii de Bello Gallico, he describes the principle of “murum aries attigit” – which states that a soon-to-be-conquered city would be offered conditions of surrender by the Romans, but only “before the battering-ram should touch the wall.” And, should it touch the wall, no longer would such mercy would be shown, and only total devastation would follow. The doctrine was meant to foster a diplomatic resolution by dissuading further hostilities with the very real threat of no alternative but death.

In recent years the Russian government, under Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, has adopted a similar doctrine in its response to Islamic terrorism. This approach was first displayed in 2002 when Putin used unconventional – some might say “brutal” — methods of subduing 40 Chechan rebels who had stormed a Moscow theater, taking more than 850 hostages. The raid on the theater, which included the use of a “knock-out” gas, unintentionally resulted in the death of more than 100 hostages. Putin brushed aside criticism, noting the rescue saved hundreds of other hostages while killing all the Islamic terrorists. Moreover, as Putin stated, the response “proved it is impossible to bring Russia to its knees.”

Such a heavy-handed response to a terrorism is utterly unthinkable in Obama World. While Putin has adopted the murum aries attigit doctrine against terrorism, Obama has opted instead for a policy that virtually ignores the very existence of Islamic terrorism. How Russia is likely to respond to this week’s assassination of its Ambassador to Turkey, compared to America’s own responses to recent acts of terrorism, including its own assassinated Ambassador to Libya in 2012, presents a stark contrast in leadership in the post-911 world.

Immediately following the assassination Monday of Russian Ambassador Andrey Karlov, in which the attacker stood over the body shouting support of global jihad, Putin promised to escalate its fight against terrorism, and warned those “bandits” responsible for the assassination “will feel this happening.” Compare this to the Obama Administration’s tepid and waveringan response to the 2012 terror attack on an American diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya. Despite knowing almost immediately the attack was a planned terror attack, Obama’s State Department – led by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – denied any connection to Islamic terrorism, and declared the attack was merely a “spontaneous protest” over a YouTube video that got out of hand. Later, when this was proven to be a bald-faced lie, Obama intentionally stonewalled congressional investigations into the many security failures that led to the attack.

There was no declaration of definitive action by Washington, or promise of swift retribution. Such obfuscation of facts, and dodging having to verbally recognize the threat of Islamic terrorism, has been the standard response to acts of terrorism at home and abroad under Obama. For example, Obama and his Democratic cronies in Congress used the 2015 terrorist shooting spree in San Bernardino, California not to announce a commitment to wiping ISIS from the map, but as an excuse to talk about “gun control.” In response to the massacre earlier this year at an Orlando nightclub popular in the gay community, Obama pushed a politically coded message about “tolerance.”

Obama’s inability to accept the reality of global terrorism for fear of offending the globalist community or a cherished interest group, and the lack of definitive action beyond waiting and seeing whether the “international community” will first “come together” to help “degrade” and “manage” such attacks on U.S. citizens and interests, has created a vacuum in which ISIS and its lone-wolf converts are actively plotting future attacks. In fact, Obama’s response to terrorism, if doing so at all, has been so backwards that Al Qaeda even struggles with making sure it gets proper credit for its activities — suggesting attackers target Caucasians so as to avoid such attacks being labeled “hate crimes” rather than terrorism.

Everyone scrolls down their Facebook newsfeed and read your friend’s latest posts, but is Facebook controlling what posts you see?

In countries like Russia and Pakistan, Facebook has built a way to keep certain restricted information from landing in people’s news feed.

The New York Times is reporting that Facebook has designed software to keep people from seeing content based on geographic areas.

The social media giant even deletes or blocks some content to Americans at the request of our government.

During a six-month period in 2015, Facebook blocked about 55,000 pieces of content.

People go to Facebook to read and respond to friends, family and businesses they trust. People trust that they are seeing a balanced slice of what their friends are posting.

In reality, it is possible that Facebook could suppress positive Trump posts during the campaign and push the negative ones onto people’s newsfeeds. A claim that many conservatives said was happening.

All of the censorship changes at Facebook could be the result of a dream the CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, has to be in China.

There is a rumor online that Obama turned over the power of the Internet in October to help Facebook get access into China. The rumors of not confirmed, but Facebook and it’s employees support the Democratic Party passionately.

Mark Zuckerberg has been learning Mandarin and has met with President Xi Jinping on several occasions.

There are over a billion people in China and the tightly controlled Internet could be a gold mine for Zuckerberg.

In order to be in China, the social media king will need censor a great deal of content that the government doesn’t allow its people to see.

Currently censorship is a big deal with Facebook and the government. Both want to ban “fake and misleading” content from the platform and the Internet as a whole.

Controlling the media Americans can consume sounds a lot like China and it is scary to think who is actually picking the “trustworthy” news.

"Hillary Clinton" by Tim Pierce (licensed CC-BY-2.0)

Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, had an interview where he spoke about the sources for Hillary’s emails and it isn’t Russia.

Hillary stood on the Debate stage and told the world that “17 intelligence agencies” have concluded that Russia is to blame for the hacks that has sent her campaign into a tailspin this year.

Every Democrat deflects the WikiLeaks questions by saying that Russia stole the information, but that doesn’t seem to be true.

The official statement from the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence have stated that Russia is the culprit, but are they?

Read the statement below and see that there is no evidence at all to confirm Russia’s involvement. The statement says that the methods of the hacking were “consistent” with Russian methods, but nothing concrete.

“The U.S. Intelligence Community (USIC) is confident that the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of e-mails from US persons and institutions, including from US political organizations. The recent disclosures of alleged hacked e-mails on sites like DCLeaks.com and WikiLeaks and by the Guccifer 2.0 online persona are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts. These thefts and disclosures are intended to interfere with the US election process. Such activity is not new to Moscow—the Russians have used similar tactics and techniques across Europe and Eurasia, for example, to influence public opinion there. We believe, based on the scope and sensitivity of these efforts, that only Russia’s senior-most officials could have authorized these activities.”

Not only did the intelligence agencies not confirm Russia’s involvement, they blamed Russia for something they may not be involved in.

If we listen to Julian Assange in his most recent interview, he says that Russia is not the source.

If Russia isn’t the source, then who is?

We don’t know for sure, but there are a lot of people who are saying that Seth Rich, the DNC staffer killed while walking home in DC is most likely the one who leaked the emails.

Lobbyists, WikiLeaks and others have offered a cash reward to information on Seth Rich’s death. The donated rewards are over $140,000 now. Some people believe that Seth Rich is the one that leaked it and they are willing to put their money where their mouth is.

The one thing we do know is that Russia has denied any involvement and we don’t have any evidence that they are to blame.

Democrats have done a good job in deflecting and trying to downplay the credibility of WikiLeaks, but the truth will come out. Unfortunately we won’t know until after this election.

chaos

The moment we have been waiting for, the election on Tuesday, could just be the start of the chaos that will follow.

The FBI building was vandalized with the word “corrupt” spray painted on the side. Two men were arrested Saturday for the crime, but they hit Trump International Hotel as well.

Painting “corrupt” on the side of an FBI building would be unthinkable a year ago, but now a lot of people on both sides feel the agency has been corrupted.

What does it say about rule of law in America when many citizens question the FBI’s intentions?

The popular feeling about the FBI and the growing hate for police from the left and minority groups, law and order is being threatened.

Law and order is just one part of the chaos, the economy looks like it will take a hit too.

The “Father of Reaganomics” made a startling claim about what will happen to the stock market after the election.

“The markets are hideously inflated… If you don’t sell before the election, certainly do it afterwards. Government is going to be totally paralyzed regardless of who wins. There could be a 25% draw down on the markets.”

Twenty five percent is huge. That would mean that the stock market would drop from close to 18,000 to 13,500. A drop like that could be devastating to an already struggling economy.

It won’t help that the country is so divided over this election; more people will be absolutely against an elected president than any other time in recent history.

On top of all of our problems, the world has some major problems too.

It has been reported that Russia is going to attack ISIS in Syria within 24 hours and Al-Qaeda wants to attack here. There are threats against New York, Texas and Virginia.

ISIS wants to kill Americans on Election Day.

The Department of Homeland Security is weighing options to take over the elections on Tuesday.

CIA is talking about attacking Russia online if they tamper with our elections.

If we can make it through the election and pick a president, then that could be when the real fun starts.

Our trust in law and order, our democracy, media and our elected officials is reaching an all-time low and that could spell disaster.

We are living in a dangerous time. Regardless of who wins, things are going to get worse before they get better.

Do you think everything will be peaceful after the election or do you expect chaos? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

assange

Over the past three weeks, Julian Assange has had his Internet cut, feared dead and recorded an interview to answer the questions, “Is Russia His Source?”

The founder of WikiLeaks has been living in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for over four years as he directs the actions of his whistleblowing site.

Recent leaks have caused the DNC chief to resign and exposed tactics that may have stolen the election from Bernie Sanders.

WikiLeaks also put Hillary’s campaign head, John Podesta’s emails out for everyone to read.

Hillary and her team of media surrogates have pushed the narrative that Russia is to blame for all of the hacks, but Assange is setting the record strait.

In a 25-minute interview with John Pilger from RT that airs Saturday, Julian Assange tells the world that Russia is not to blame.

“The Clinton camp has been able to project a neo-McCarthyist hysteria that Russia is responsible for everything. Hillary Clinton has stated multiple times, falsely; that 17 US intelligence agencies had assessed that Russia was the source of our publications. That’s false – we can say that the Russian government is not the source.”

In a teaser released for the interview, Julian says that he feels bad for Hillary and we see a different side of Julian Assange.

The revelation that Russia is not behind the WikiLeaks would be a big one, but in all fairness it needs to be verified.

Hopefully, Assange will be able to give us more details to where the leaks came from, to fully vindicate the Russians.

If it turns out that Russia isn’t to blame, Hillary will look bad. A presidential candidate has been blaming the wrong country for crimes they may have not committed.

Make sure you tune in on Saturday to catch the Interview or check back with us as we update this ongoing groundbreaking story.
