US and UN Still Refuse To Investigate Idlib ‘Chemical Incident’ Site

UN doesn’t send experts to Idlib 'chemical incident' site as West & US are blocking it - Assad

“We formally sent a letter to the United Nations, we asked them in that letter to send a delegation in order to investigate what happened in Khan Shaykhun,” Assad said. “Of course till this moment they didn’t send (the experts), because the West and the US blocked any delegation from coming,” he added.

Bashar Assad believes that Washington is hampering the probe because if the experts arrive in Idlib, “they will find that all their (the US) narratives about what happened in Khan Shaykhun and then the attack on Shayrat airport was a false flag, was a lie.”

“Now the only contact I think is between Russia and maybe the other countries in order to send that delegation. Till this moment, we didn’t have any positive news regarding any delegation coming,” he added.

On April 4, an alleged chemical attack killed dozens of people in the town of Khan Shaykhun in Syria’s Idlib province.

Without any investigation carried out, the US labeled Assad’s government as perpetrators and fired a barrage of Tomahawk missiles at Shayrat airbase, which it said was the source of the chemical attack.

Russia has called for a thorough investigation of the chemical incident, which would include an on-site inspection in the rebel-held territory, before coming to any conclusions.

“Actually, since the first attack a few years ago that happened in Aleppo by the terrorists against our army, we asked the United Nations to send investigation delegation in order to prove what we said about the terrorists having gases used against our army, and later many incidents happened in that way, and they didn’t send any delegation. It’s the same now,” Assad told Sputnik.

Earlier this week, Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said that it is identifying sarin in samples related to the April 5 incident.

However, the watchdog never explained how it obtained the samples, as its experts have not visited Khan Shaykhun yet.

The Russian military questioned the swift analysis of the samples, saying the OPCW did not act with such speed in another incident in which a militant group reportedly used mustard gas in Aleppo.

“Russian specialists on the site of the crime [in Aleppo] collected samples of the agent, which had been delivered to representatives of the OPCW and transported to the Hague. By the way, the Syrian leadership at the time offered safety guarantees and insisted that OPCW experts visit Aleppo, but nobody came,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said Thursday.

“Four months later the OPCW still won’t come to a conclusion and admit the mustard gas found there was mustard gas, saying additional analysis is necessary,” he added.

Trump and the news media have blamed Russia and Syria for deploying poison gas, but they refuse to ask for a real investigation into the matter. In the West, TV news creates its own fake news. That, then, is used by the government and treated as “facts” without investigation. Now, backed by fake news, the US Government is threatening sanctions and war on Syria, North Korea, and Russia.

The Oklahoma City Bombing After 22 Years

Paul Craig Roberts

Today, April 19, 2017, is the 22nd anniversary of the Oklahoma City Bombing. The bombing of the federal Murrah office building was blamed by federal authorities on a bomb made from fertilizer inside a truck parked in front of the building by Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols.

There are many anomalies associated with the official explanation, including mysterious deaths of some, including a police officer, who understood that the actual facts did not accord with the explanation. Investigators who report the actual facts are branded “conspiracy theorists” and dismissed. This has been the Deep State’s way of controlling explanations since the 1940s.

Americans, being the insouciant (heedless; unconcerned) people that they are, never noticed that the Murrah building blew up from the inside out, not from the outside in.

After the bombing in Oklahoma city a very interesting video of the event was made by a citizen journalist (see below). It was titled ”Cover-up in Oklahoma”. It was largely composed of video taken from the local news channels immediately after the the bombing. The difference between the immediate local news coverage and the official story is the difference between x and not-x. Within an hour or two of the bombing the local news coverage featured an interview with a Mr. Randall Heather (as I remember his name). He was identified as an expert (on either terrorism or explosives) and he was positively giddy with joy. He stated that first responders going through the standing remains of the Murrah Building had discovered several unexploded bombs and that with this evidence the perpetrators were almost certainly going to be identified and caught in short order. (Of course Mr. Heather quickly vanished from the airways.) There are also several clips from the local news of bomb disposal vehicles backing up to the Murrah Building with the audio of the local reporter stating that unexploded bombs had been found and were being removed. There is also video of a talk by General Partin on the absolute certainty that the building was blown up from the inside. The speech was made over a local access TV station (as I recall) and recorded by a citizen journalist. Some time later I learned (from some other source) that the speech was made over a local access TV station because no MSN station would permit Partin to appear on-air. What appears to have happened is that the Murrah Building was intended to be brought totally down, producing nothing but a pile of rubble of essentially no obvious evidentiary value , but something went wrong, and several bombs failed to explode. Washington was not prepared for this and did not have a team of news censors on-site to take immediate control of the coverage. The result was that for several hours the local first responders had full access to the still-standing portions of the building, and the local reporters had a free hand to report on what was found. (These local reporters did in fact report shortly after the bombing that Washington had \”a team of investigators in the air\” heading to Oklahoma City. When I viewed this video with a group of people one of them groaned \”Here come the news censors\”. Indeed, after just about the length of time that it would have taken Washington to quickly assemble a team and fly them to Oklahoma City, the local news coverage utterly changed and began to reflect what became the official story.) Incidentally, you may be aware that both Time and Newsweek reported that the external bomb (which allegedly brought down the building) was so powerful that it left a massive crater in front of the Murrah building. The dimensions of this crater were said to be 30 feet across by 10 feet deep. (I imagine that computer modeling had shown that an explosion powerful enough to bring down the building, would have left such a crater. To tell a consistent story, the existence of such a crater was then reported. I used to work in the defense industry and in my experience such computer modeling of the effects of weapons is totally standard.) Of course, video taken by local news helicopters flying over the Murrah Building during the first hour or two after the explosion show no such crater. When I watched this video with a small group, one of the members of the audience screamed, \”Where is the crater?\” , and ran up to inspect the TV screen. He returned to his seat muttering, \”America is so sick. America is so sick.\” Several years ago (maybe six or seven) I found that this video, \”Cover-up in Oklahoma\” was still available on eBay or Amazon. It may be on YouTube. I have not checked. For about 4 hours after the bombing, the local news in Oklahoma was free of censorship. This video provides a good record of what actually happened. Here is a compilation of the first reports.

 

 

Air Force General Benton K. Partin, the US Air Force’s top explosive expert, noticed these things too. He prepared a detailed report containing 
“conclusive proof that the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, was not caused solely by the truck bomb. Evidence shows that the massive destruction was primarily the result of four demolition charges placed at critical structural points at the third floor level.” Here is a copy of General Partin’s letter accompanying the report he sent to US Senator Trent Lott. http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/RANCHO/POLITICS/OK/PARTIN/ok8.htm

General Partin was my neighbor in Alexandria, Virginia. I went through his report those years ago, and it is clear that the official “investigation” ignored all the facts presented by General Partin. Indeed, Partin’s report is not even part of the record. Wikipedia does not even mention the report as a “conspiracy theory” in Wikipedia’s recitation of the official line.

The Oklahoma City Bombing was orchestrated and then covered up just as the 9/11 bombing of the WTC in Manhattan was orchestrated and then covered up.

A number of people knew better than to come to work that day in the Murrah building. The motive behind the deep state perpetrators’ desire to kill several hundred people, including children, was planned with the objective of creating fear (and thus preventing rational thinking) among the public, stirring up wars against the predetermined targets in the middle east, and getting support to enlarge the military industrial complex while establishing a police state here at home.

It was targeted at the militias and the creation of police powers that could be used against them. Two years previously the Clinton regime murdered approximately 100 men, women, and children at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas. The religious sect was threatening no one and in violation of no laws, but it was a dissident group that the US government decided to terminate.

The focus on dissidents changed with 9/11, which Israel and Israel’s American neoconservative allies used to apply wide-ranging and long-lasting massive violence to seven Muslim countries, costing US taxpayers trillions of dollars and what remained of the reputation of the United States.

The main consequence of “terrorism” is the extraordinary growth of unconstitutional police state powers throughout the Western world. Every protective shield of individual rights, except for the Second Amendment, has been stripped from the US Constitution by the so-called “war on terror.”

All of the alleged terrorist attacks have puzzling, uninvestigated, and unreported anomalies. It is astonishing that the media never asks any questions. Consider, for example, the Nice, France, Truck attack.

Nice police authorities have the unambiguous evidence of the security cameras on every block of the truck’s alleged murderous route. There should be no question whatsoever about what really happened. Yet, the Minister of the Interior in Paris ordered the Nice public authorities to destroy the video evidence and not to release it. So all we have is a very grainy inconclusive video taken by a person allegedly married to a former Mossad intelligence officer. This person turns out to be the same person who provides the only video of an attack in Germany.

The bridge attack in London is overwhelming with the lack of any evidence. We simply get an official story. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPIAp2sDzTc

Sandy Hook is famous for the one bereaved parent, but there were allegedly scores of dead children. Where are the other parents? Aren’t they bereaved?

If these terror events are real, it is a simple matter for the media to ask questions, to investigate, and to give the public the facts. But the media never does. The media only repeats the official story without checking it.

In other words, the facts are whatever the government says they are. So what is the purpose of the media?

No purpose except to be a trumpet for the government.

The official stories of the Murrah office building bombing and 9/11 are now enshrined in memorials, the purpose of which is to make a lie the truth.

For insouciant Americans this works.

The US is without any doubt now the worst police state, not only in reality exceeding Gestapo Nazi Germany, but exceeding the human imagination of George Orwell and other authors of dystopias.

And this utterly corrupt criminal police state gets away with pretending to be the “defender of democracy and freedom.” The insouciant American population has no clue.

Freedom is dying in America. Sadly, the younger generations can’t see it because they’ve never experienced freedom. They don’t know what it is, so they don’t know what they have lost.

Shameful Trump Team Follows Israel’s Anti-Iran Agenda

Paul Craig Roberts

In my long experience in Washington, vice presidents did not make major foreign policy announcements or threaten other countries with war. Not even Dick Cheney stole this role from the weak president George W. Bush.

But yesterday the world witnessed VP Pence threaten North Korea with war. “The sword stands ready,” said Pence as if he is the commander in chief.

Perhaps he is.

Where is Trump? As far as I can tell from the numerous emails I receive from him, he is at work marketing his presidency. Once Trump won the election, I began receiving endless offers to purchase Trump baseball caps, T-shirts, cuff-links, coffee mugs, and to donate $3 to be entered into a raffle to win some memorabilia. The latest offer is a chance to win one of “personally signed five incredible photographs of our historic and massive inauguration.” See Trump Memorabilia Offer

For Trump, the presidency is a fund-raising device. If his VP, National Security Advisor, Secretary of Defense, UN Ambassador, CIA Director, whoever, want to start wars wherever, that’s just more memorabilia to raffle off for a $3 donation.

As a result of Trump’s failure to govern his own government, we have VP Pence telling Russia and China that there could be a nuclear exchange on their borders between the US and North Korea. Although Pence is not smart enough to know, this is not something Russia and China will accept.

Washington worries about North Korea having nuclear weapons, but the entire world worries that Washington has nuclear weapons. And so many of them! World polls have shown that the majority of the world’s population are far more concerned about the threat to peace posed by Washington and Israel than by Iran, North Korea, Russia and China.

Pence prefaced his “the sword stands ready” remark with “the United States of America will always seek peace,” which after Serbia, Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Pakistan, and Syria is as false a statement as it is possible to make. From Washington’s perspective it is always Washington’s victims that are “reckless and provocative,” never Washington.

The US stands for war. If the world is driven to Armegeddon, it will be by Washington, not North Korea, Iran, Russia, or China.

The Last Country We “Liberated” From An “Evil” Dictator Is Now In Ruins

By Carey Wedler

It is widely known that the U.S.-led NATO intervention to topple Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 resulted in a power vacuum that has allowed terror groups like ISIS to gain a foothold in the country.

Despite the destructive consequences of the 2011 invasion, the West is currently taking a similar trajectory with regard to Syria. Just as the Obama administration excoriated Gaddafi in 2011, highlighting his human rights abuses and insisting he must be removed from power to protect the Libyan people, the Trump administration is now pointing to the repressive policies of Bashar al-Assad in Syria and warning his regime will soon come to an end — all in the name of protecting Syrian civilians.

But as the U.S. and its allies fail to produce legal grounds for their recent air strike — let alone provide concrete evidence to back up their claims Assad was responsible for a deadly chemical attack last week — more hazards of invading foreign countries and removing their heads of state are emerging.

This week, new findings revealed another unintended consequence of “humanitarian intervention”: the growth of the human slave trade.

The Guardian reports that while “violence, extortion and slave labor” have been a reality for people trafficked through Libya in the past, the slave trade has recently expanded. Today, people are selling other human beings out in the open.

“The latest reports of ‘slave markets’ for migrants can be added to a long list of outrages [in Libya],” said Mohammed Abdiker, head of operation and emergencies for the International Office of Migration, an intergovernmental organization that promotes “humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all,” according to its website. “The situation is dire. The more IOM engages inside Libya, the more we learn that it is a vale of tears for all too many migrants.”

The North African country is commonly used as a point of exit for refugees fleeing other parts of the continent. But since Gaddafi was overthrown in 2011, “the vast, sparsely populated country has slid into violent chaos and migrants with little cash and usually no papers are particularly vulnerable,” the Guardian explains.

One survivor from Senegal said he was passing through Libya from Niger with a group of other migrants attempting to flee their home countries. They had paid a smuggler to transport them via bus to the coast, where they would risk taking a boat to Europe. But rather than take them to the coast, the smuggler took them to a dusty lot in Sabha, Libya. According to Livia Manente, an IOM officer who interviews survivors, “their driver suddenly said middlemen had not passed on his fees and put his passengers up for sale.”

“Several other migrants confirmed his story, independently describing kinds of slave markets as well as kinds of private prisons all over in Libya,” she said, adding IOM Italy had confirmed similar stories from migrants landing in southern Italy.

The Senegalese survivor said he was taken to a makeshift prison, which the Guardian notes are common in Libya.

Those held inside are forced to work without pay, or on meager rations, and their captors regularly call family at home demanding a ransom. His captors asked for 300,000 west African francs (about £380), then sold him on to a larger jail where the demand doubled without explanation.

When migrants were held too long without having a ransom paid for them, they were taken away and killed. “Some wasted away on meager rations in unsanitary conditions, dying of hunger and disease, but overall numbers never fell,” the Guardian reported.

“If the number of migrants goes down, because of death or someone is ransomed, the kidnappers just go to the market and buy one,” Manente said.

Giuseppe Loprete, IOM Niger’s chief of mission, confirmed these disturbing reports. “It’s very clear they see themselves as being treated as slaves,” he said. He arranged for the repatriation of 1,500 migrants just in the first three months of this year and is concerned more stories and incidents will emerge as more migrants return from Libya.

“And conditions are worsening in Libya so I think we can also expect more in the coming months,” he added.

As the United States government continues to entertain regime change in Syria as a viable solution to the many crises in that country, it is becoming ever-more evident that ousting dictators — however detestable they may be —  is not effective. Toppling Saddam Hussein led not only to the deaths of civilians and radicalization within the population, but also the rise of ISIS.

As Libya, once a beacon of stability in the region, continues to devolve in the fallout from the Western “humanitarian” intervention – and as human beings are dragged into emerging slave trades while rapes and kidnappings plague the population — it is increasingly obvious that further war will only create even further suffering in unforeseen ways.

Russia Insists OPCW, UN Inspectors Verify Origin Of Gas Attack In Syria

(The US didn’t inspect or verify who was behind the chemical attack before ordering missile strikes against Syria.  Unreliable claims from paid agents posing as political dissidents are not proof, and certainly not evidence to justify a US missile attack.

US has “longstanding tradition” of aggression under invented pretexts. And now it also has North Korea in its sights.

Again, Russia seems to be the only major power demanding an official investigation to determine the blame in Syria, and preventing more stupid and needless war. The criminals/fools who run the US Government, and its military, are ready to shoot and bomb without proof … a tactic the US repeats over and over. They did it in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and now in Syria. In every case they only create death, misery, and  chaos while blaming the victims and Russia. And amazingly, most Americans actually believe the lies. -ed.)

لاوروف

TEHRAN  – Russia will insist not only at the Organization for Prohibition of Chemical Weapon (OPCW), but also at the UN on urgent sending of inspectors for investigation into the incident with alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Saturday.

“We have shared with the Qatari counterparts the Russian vision on the situation,” Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after a meeting with Qatar’s Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al-Thani.

“We consider it absolutely necessary to have thorough, objective and unbiased professional investigation,” he said. “We shall both at OPCW in New York and at the UN insist on urgent sending of inspectors both to the side of the accident and to the (Shayrat) aerodrome, where, as Western experts claim, shells were filled with chemical substances,” Lavrov said, Tass news agency reported.

The Russian foreign minister told reporters the parties had discussed key problems in the Middle East and Northern Africa, including the situation in Syria, Libya, Yemen, the Middle East settlement, including the Palestinian problem.

“As for Syria, our common position is the necessary overwhelming ceasefire between the government and armed opposition, further anti-terrorist fight against the Daesh (known  as ISIL or ISIS ) and Habhat al-Nusra (terrorist groups outlawed in Russia – TASS), as well as acceleration of this crisis’ settlement on the basis of the UN SC resolution,” the Russian minister said.

According to data of the Russian Defense Ministry, Syrian warplanes delivered an air strike on April 4 that hit workshops where terrorists were producing munitions with chemical agents supplied to Iraq and used in Aleppo.

However, Washington concluded that Damascus had used chemical weapons. As a result, the US military fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles on the military aerodrome in the province of Homs, from which, as Washington believed, a chemical attack had allegedly started. The missile strike killed 10 people.

US Missile Attack On Syria Was To Counter Russia

[It’s deja vu all over again. Watching Trump mouth the absurd excuses for his recent missile strikes on a Syrian airport brings back visions of monkey-faced Bush starring bewilderingly at cameras and mouthing his beyond-ridiculous claims about the 9-11 attacks on the World Trade Center back in 2011. Everyone knew he was lying through his teeth, but no one dared do anything about it.

A lot of Americans hoped that Trump might be different. But they needn’t wonder any longer. Trump has collected a whole bevy of bad people on his staff to advise him and to be his spokesmen. He is proving to be a typical idiot. America is run by idiots with gigantic egos and criminal hands reaching for money.

Anyone wanting to sit in the office of President nowadays must be either a psychopathic criminal or a complete fool. We haven’t seen a sane President in America for as long as I can remember. Eisenhower might be the last one to come close. Trump is looking and sounding more and more like a George Bush clone nowadays. One might wonder just how silly the buffoon president can look as he worms his way in with the criminal crowd that occupies Capitol Hill and the Pentagon. -ed.]

4-15-2017

An absurd array of analysis has emerged, following the US airstrike on a Syrian airfield. The US Government’s position can be summarized in one sentence: “for peace to return and for civil war to end in Syria, Assad must sacrifice his presidency.”

While it is mind-boggling to see the mainstream Western media calling Syria’s chaos a “civil war” when fighters from 86 countries are reportedly fighting there, the US’ own direct intervention does strongly make it a war imposed from outside forces. The US intervention comes in addition to the proxy groups being funded by the Arab countries as well as Syria’s immediate neighbor, Turkey, as all of them have been looking, since the beginning of the crisis, for ways and means to impose a “regime change” in Syria to facilitate their own imperial projects.

The so-called chemical attack—something that CIA itself is guilty of previously supporting and overlooking in the US manufactured gulf war—-is the latest excuse they seem to have invented to legitimize direct military intervention to prolong the war and facilitate their own sinister objectives for the region that extends far beyond Syria.

Prior to the attack, the five years of war had us to a point, until 2 weeks ago, where the US officials were reported to have changed their policy vis-à-vis Assad. Reportedly, ‘sending Assad home’ was no longer the US agenda. The agenda, as their various statements suggested, was to pave the way for a political solution of the crisis. This, however, seems to be out of the question now as we are back to square one with regard to the question of Assad’s future as the country’s president. The agenda of “Assad must go” is back on the table and so is the question of the role Russia, as also Iran, has played in helping Assad against the foreign funded “rebels” and the self-styled Islamic State.

If it hadn’t been for Russian military presence in Syria since September 2015, Syria would have fallen. Everyone knows this. Therefore, by projecting the blatant lies about Russia being an accomplice in the pseudo gas-attack, the US is attempting to push back the Russian led peace process to a point where the US can reinsert itself in the conflict and keep the region embroiled in war and bloodshed.

Notwithstanding the “humanitarian face” put on Trump’s motive behind the attack, the fact remains that at least two immediate reasons stood behind the attack:

  1. The US’ allies, especially in the Middle East, were developing the perception of US’ indifference—and/or ineptness against the gradually increasing assertiveness of the Russia-Iran- Syrian government combine in the region.
  2. US’ Establishment (of course including Pentagon) appears to have felt the necessity to apply a “check” to the increasing Russian military-geopolitical common sense in Ukraine/Crimea and now in Syria (and very recently inserting, albeit in low profile at this stage, in Afghanistan).

Therefore, against a subtly changing geo-political scenario in a region that was, until 2 years ago, solely under the US command, the US cannot help but put up a fight to regain the space it has lost. As such, the perception being built in the US via the mainstream media that Washington is not frantic to upstage Russia is factually incorrect.

How is the world supposed to disregard the reality that not even a slight attempt at intelligence gathering, analysis and professional decision making by the US Establishment has been seen, and that only a “knee jerk” decision was made by the US president?

On the other hand, what appears more likely and logical is that that US government does have a settled plan to apply such “checks moves” to counter Russia’s moves to expand its own geopolitical influence.

However, what is not yet certain is whether the US plans to commence its long-term intervention moves in Syria, or only the “check moves” according to the evolving situation. So far what appears more likely is that US may not prefer to intervene militarily alone in a big way in Syria because US ’public is averse to heavy causalities of their kith and kin in US military, and continuation of the mutual attrition of the Muslim world helps US and its allies to maintain their geopolitical superiority and enables them to profit from the war (Read: the missile strike has added a whopping US$ 5billion to the Tomahawk market).

That is to say, while the US does want to retrieve some of the geo-political space it has lost to Russia, it wants to do this through a limited military engagement. On the one hand, this would help the US in maintaining its erstwhile allies, such as Turkey, in its own ambit and use them against Russia/Iran, and on the other, a tussle with Russia would equally help it maintain its military and political credibility amongst its European allies who have been expressing their “reservations” with regard to Trump’s possible opening up to Russia—something that now appears to be unrealistic and out of the question.

The attack on Syria, in this context, was not a spontaneous outcome of Trump’s emotions, it was a well calculated move; a part of the US new strategy for the region, in the war that is likely to go on in the years to come. And, although missiles landed on a Syrian airbase, the target was Russia and the message was loud and clear enough: the US wouldn’t allow Russia and its allies to end the war that allows the US to maintain its superior position amongst its allies as well as enemies.

Top Ten Reasons To Doubt Official Story On Assad Poison-Gas Attack

By Jon Rappoport

The sarin-gas attack story prompted the US missile strike on a Syrian runway. Here are the top ten reasons for doubting that story, and instead calling it a convenient pretext:

ONE: Photos show rescue workers treating/decontaminating people injured or killed in the gas attack. The workers aren’t wearing gloves or protective gear. Only the clueless or crazy would expose themselves to sarin residue, which can be fatal.

TWO: MIT professor Thomas Postol told RT, “I believe it can be shown, without doubt, that the [US intelligence] document does not provide any evidence whatsoever that the US government has concrete knowledge that the government of Syria was the source of the chemical attack in Khan Shaykhun…Any competent analyst would have had questions about whether the debris in the crater was staged or real. No competent analyst would miss the fact that the alleged sarin canister was forcefully crushed from above, rather than exploded by a munition within it.” How would a canister purportedly dropped from an Assad-ordered plane incur “crushing from above?”

THREE: Why would President Assad, supported by Russia, scoring victory after victory against ISIS, moving closer to peace negotiations, suddenly risk all his gains by dropping sarin gas on his own people?

FOUR: In an interview with Scott Horton, ex-CIA officer Philip Giraldi states that his intelligence and military sources indicate Assad didn’t attack his own people with poison gas.

FIVE: Ex-CIA officer Ray McGovern states that his military sources report an Assad air strike did hit a chemical plant, and the fallout killed people, but the attack was not planned for that purpose. There was no knowledge the chemicals were lethal.

SIX: At consortiumnews.com, journalist Robert Parry writes, “There is a dark mystery behind the White House-released photo showing President Trump and more than a dozen advisers meeting at his estate in Mar-a-Lago after his decision to strike Syria with Tomahawk missiles: Where are CIA Director Mike Pompeo and other top intelligence officials?”

“Before the photo was released on Friday, a source told me that Pompeo had personally briefed Trump on April 6 about the CIA’s belief that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was likely not responsible for the lethal poison-gas incident in northern Syria two days earlier — and thus Pompeo was excluded from the larger meeting as Trump preferred a contrary decision.”

“After the attack, Secretary of State Tillerson, who is not an institutional intelligence official and has little experience with the subtleties of intelligence, was the one to claim that the U.S. intelligence community assessed with a ‘high degree of confidence’ that the Syrian government had dropped a poison gas bomb on civilians in Idlib province.”

“While Tillerson’s comment meshed with Official Washington’s hastily formed groupthink of Assad’s guilt, it is hard to believe that CIA analysts would have settled on such a firm conclusion so quickly, especially given the remote location of the incident and the fact that the initial information was coming from pro-rebel (or Al Qaeda) sources.”

“Thus, a serious question arises whether President Trump did receive that ‘high degree of confidence’ assessment from the intelligence community or whether he shunted Pompeo aside to eliminate an obstacle to his desire to launch the April 6 rocket attack.”

SEVEN: As soon as the Assad gas attack was reported, the stage was set for a US missile strike. No comprehensive investigation of the purported gas attack was undertaken.

EIGHT: There are, of course, precedents for US wars based on false evidence—the missing WMDs in Iraq, the claims of babies being pushed out of incubators in Kuwait, to name just two.

NINE: Who benefits from the sarin gas story? Assad? Or US neocons; the US military-industrial complex; Pentagon generals who want a huge increase in their military budget; Trump and his team, who are suddenly praised in the press, after a year of being pilloried at every turn; and ISIS?

TEN: For those who doubt that ISIS has ever used poison gas, see the NY Times (11/21/2016). While claiming that Assad has deployed chemical attacks, the article also states that ISIS has deployed chemical weapons 52 times since 2014.

These ten reasons starkly point to the lack of a rational and complete investigation of the “gas attack.”

And this lack throws a monkey wrench into Trump’s claim that he was ordering the missile strike based on “a high degree of confidence.”

“The United States Stands Before The World As A Criminal Nation

“Washington has murdered entire countries in whole or part: Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Afghanistan, Yemen, parts of Syria and Pakistan. Millions of Muslim peoples have been killed, maimed, orphaned, and dislocated. The dispossessed and dislocated are filling up the American Empire that destroyed their lives. The American genocide of nations has had the full support of “Western civilization” and the print and TV media of Western journalism. Every transparent lie out of Washington’s mouth has been repeated by European, Canadian, and Austrailian heads of state and by the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, NPR and all the rest of the presstitutes of the Western world.

“Trump is the fourth US president in a row who takes refuge in blatant lies as his justification for war crimes. The Western world has chosen lies and rejected truth.”  (- Paul Craig Roberts)

No traces of chemical weapons found at Syria’s Shayrat airfield

News » Syria. The latest and breaking news from Syria

No traces of chemical weapons found at Syria's Shayrat airfield. 60218.jpeg

In order to prove the availability of chemical weapons at Shayrat airbase in Syria, one should send experts there, Russia’s Defence Ministry spokesman, Major-General Igor Konashenkov said, reports Interfax.

“Neither the Pentagon nor the State Department have provided any evidence proving the presence of chemical weapons at the airbase,” the official said.

“The only way to obtain objective evidence of the alleged presence of poisonous substances at Shayrat airbase is to send a missions of professional experts there,” Konashenkov said.

According to him, the possible presence of chemical weapons should be analysed with the use of special equipment to obtain samples, document them and conduct their scientific analysis.”

Konashenkov noted that neither warehouses nor ammunition with chemical weapons have been found after journalists, officials with the local administration, police and many others visited the Shayrat airbase. All those visitors, Konashenkov added, did not wear gas masks and felt “perfectly normal.”

On April 7, the US military conducted a cruise missile attack on Shayrat airbase in Syria’s Homs Province. The attack was carried out from US Navy ships in the Mediterranean Sea. The Pentagon said that the attack came in response to the chemical attack in Idlib Province, which, as US officials believe, was conducted by Bashar Assad’s troops. According to the United States, Syrian aircraft took off from Shayrat airbase before they gassed people in Idlib.

Grasshopper Windows Hacking Frame – CIA Hacks Everyone

(OR HOW THE CIA HACKED, AND BOTCHED, THE US ELECTIONS AND MADE IT LOOK LIKE RUSSIA DID IT)

Apr 8 2017

 

Do we need any more reasons not to trust the government, especially the CIA? Well, thanks to Wiki Leaks we now have one more reason not to, and it is called “Grasshopper.”

According to the leaked information, Grasshopper framework allows the agency members to easily create custom malware. The Grasshopper framework will automatically put together the components sufficient for attacking a Windows machine, and once the target is selected the framework then puts together an  installer that CIA agency members can use to install custom malware on the tart computer.

“The documents WikiLeaks publishes today provide an insights into the process of building modern espionage tools and insights into how the CIA maintains persistence over infected Microsoft Windows computers, providing directions for those seeking to defend their systems to identify any existing compromise,” WikiLeaks said.

Grasshopper allows tools to be installed and run on a machine without detection using PSP avoidance, allowing it to avoid Personal Security Products such as ‘MS Security Essentials,’ ‘Rising,’ Symantec endpoint’ or ‘Kaspersky IS.’

A Grasshopper executable contains one or more installers. And installer is a sstack of one or more installer components,” reads the manual. “Grasshopper invokes each component of the stack in series to operate on a payload. The ultimate purpose of an installer is to persist a payload.

CIA’s Grasshopper Uses ‘Stolen’ Russian Malware

Stolen Goods (Version 2)  components mechanism were taken from a malware known as Carperb, “a suspected Russian organized crime rootkit,” alleges Wikileaks.  Which means they can make it look like the Russians hacked something they actually did not.

The goal of this release is to help users seeking to defend their systems against any existing compromised security systems, Wickileaks stated. While I am sure it will not be easy to defend against this, with the knowledge that is out there steps can be taken to secure ourselves from it.

While we also do not know how the CIA has used the Grasshopper framework, but we do know according to  WikiLeaks that  the tools were used some time between 2012 and 2015.Other documents Wikileaks has revealed/ released are the “Year Zero” batch which uncovered CIA hacking exploits for popular hardware and software, the “Dark Matter” batch which focused on exploits and hacking techniques the agency designed to target iPhones and Macs, and the third batch called “Marble.”

Another Blunder By Trump

THE TAIL IS WAGGING THE DOG AGAIN. POWELL LIED ABOUT SADDAM, NOW TRUMP AND THE US PRESS ARE LYING ABOUT ASSAD.

Paul Craig Roberts

Washington’s military attack on Syria is unambiguously a war crime. It occurred without any UN authorization or even the fake cover of a “coalition of the willing.” Washington’s attack on Syria occurred in advance of an investigation of the alleged event that Washington is trying to use as its justification. Indeed, Washington’s story of Syrian use of chemical weapons is totally implausible. All chemical weapons were removed from Syria by Russia and turned over to the US and its European allies. Syria has no such weapons and has no reason to use them and every reason not to. Moreover, it is none of Washington’s business whatsoever what weapons Syria uses against terrorist forces seeking to overthrow the Syrian government.

http://www.fort-russ.com/2017/04/us-strikes-on-syria-will-have-bad.html

Governments in Europe, Canada, Australia, and Japan have not condemned this war crime. Indeed, the UK Foreign Minister has declared the UK’s support. Thus does the West reveal once again its hypocrisy.

As Russia has made clear, the alleged chemical weapons attack has every hallmark of a Washington orchestrated (false flag) event in order to set up a US military attack on Syria. As the Russian Defense Ministry explained, the US air attack had to have been planned in advance of the alleged chemical weapon event. The US air strike on Syria requires advanced planning, but followed immediately the event used as the excuse: http://eng.mil.ru/en/news_page/country/more.htm?id=12117678%40egNews

In other words, it was an orchestrated event.

Gilbert Doctorow says that the idiot Americans drowning in their own hubris have now crossed a Russian red line with consequences to follow. http://russia-insider.com/en/us-missile-strikes-syria-have-crossed-russian-red-lines-and-risk-serious-escalation/ri19479

Trump Orders Missile Strike Against Syria

[Trump is either confused, stupid, or dominated by neocons and Israelis … possibly all these things. His order of a missile strike against the Syrian Arab Army has made Saudi Arabia and Israel happy. However, it has made Russia upset, and has killed Syrians unnecessarily.

Russia has spent time and resources to eliminate the terrorists in Syria who had been supported by the US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel. Putin had driven out, or eliminated most of the ISIS and Al Queda terrorist forces over the past year. Now Trump makes the idiotic move of continuing Obama’s agenda of fighting Putin and Assad by supporting ISIS and Al Queda. 

Putin says this will force him to increase his support in building air defenses in Syria to protect against such attacks. This was a very bad decision by Trump!  – ed.]

Toni Caralucci  – 4-7-17

Upward to 60 cruise missiles fired by the US military struck a Syrian military air base near Homs – which currently constitutes the font line between Syrian Arab Army forces and multiple US State Department designated terrorist organizations, including Al Nusra and the self-proclaimed “Islamic State.”

The strike was allegedly carried out as retaliation for a supposed “chemical weapons attack” near the northern Syrian city of Idlib, which currently serves as the defacto capital of Al Qaeda forces remaining in Syria.

Rushed Strikes Based on Dubious WMD Claims 

The strikes were carried out based on dubious claims unsubstantiated with material evidence – claims made by militants and foreign-funded fronts posing as aid organizations. Similar claims have been made, and verified as false since and including the Ghouta chemical attack in 2013.

The US decision to rush unilaterally without UN approval and before any form of formal investigation could be carried out verifies the staged nature of the attacks. Were the US confident genuine use of chemical weapons were carried out by the Syrian government, a formal investigation would not only lead to a definitive UN resolution against the Syrian government, but likely also to long-desired regime change in Damascus.

Knowing that a formal investigation would reveal the staged nature of the attack, the US has rushed into action seeking to provoke a response from the Syrian government that will retroactively justify an otherwise unjustifiable first strike.

The rushed strikes resemble a small-scale repeat of fabricated evidence produced before the US invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003 which resulted in long-planned regime change, the destruction of Iraq as a functioning nation-state, and now well over a decade of chaos, conflict, division, and devastation.

Similar “humanitarian” grounds were used by the US in 2011 to justify direct military intervention in Libya, also resulting in regime change as well as the division and destruction of Libya as a nation-state. Libya now exists as a breeding ground for terrorist organizations and a springboard into Europe for African refugees who had for decades sought life and work in Libya before the 2011 US intervention.

It appears now that the US has taken the next, incremental step, to repeat this process of division and destruction, this time in Syria.

Strikes Aid Al Qaeda, Defend Terrorists’ Last Bastion in Syria 

The northern Syrian city of Idlib currently serves as the last significant stronghold of Al Qaeda in Syria. The eastern city of Raqqa serves as a sister city for the Islamic State. Despite claims that the two groups are ideologically and strategically opposed, they have coordinated their efforts in Syria for the entirety of the Syrian conflict.

Despite Al Qaeda openly running the dysfunctional city – held together almost entirely by foreign aid – US policymakers have repeatedly called for it to be transformed into the defacto capital of an opposition government. Much like the decades-long terrorist capital of Benghazi in Libya was transformed into a front for US-backed regime change, Idlib would function as a political front as US, European, NATO, and Persian Gulf states dismembered the existing Syrian state.

With the city facing imminent liberation by Syrian forces and their allies, the staged chemical weapons attack and the rushed unilateral US missile strike that followed it seeks to slow down or entirely reverse Syrian gains versus Al Qaeda’s stronghold in Idlib.

Ironically, US President Donald Trump ran on a hardliner anti-terror platform in 2016 only to find himself presiding over a foreign policy aiding and abetting the literal perpetrators of the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York City and Washington D.C. he predicated his immigration ban list’s creation on.

“Trump’s Policy” is Merely Continuity of Agenda 

The use of US cruise missiles to strike at Syria’s air force is in no shape, form, or way “President Trump’s policy.” Instead, it is merely the final execution of policy that sat on former US President Barack Obama’s desk since attempts at swift regime change failed against Syria in 2011.

The use of ‘stand-off’ weapons like cruise missiles was tabled in 2013 after a staged chemical weapons attack near Damascus, and again in 2015 after Russia’s military intervention in Syria prevented more direct use of US military force within and above Syrian territory. The use of such weapons are required due to the nature of Syria’s air defense networks.

Bloomberg in its 2013 article, “Tomahawk Cruise Missiles Likely in U.S. Strikes on Syria,” would report:

Tomahawk cruise missiles are likely to be launched at night against hundreds of Syrian targets, including some of President Bashar al-Assad’s elite military units, if the U.S. and allies launch a military strike in retaliation for the use of chemical weapons.

 “I’m thinking a pretty significant initial wave” of several hundred Tomahawks “and an assessment period and maybe a second wave if we don’t think we accomplished the destruction we wanted to,” said Jeffrey White, a former Defense Intelligence Agency analyst who’s now a defense fellow with the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

Again in 2016, the New York Times would publish in an article titled, “51 U.S. Diplomats Urge Strikes Against Assad in Syria,” that:

More than 50 State Department diplomats have signed an internal memo sharply critical of the Obama administration’s policy in Syria, urging the United States to carry out military strikes against the government of President Bashar al-Assad to stop its persistent violations of a cease-fire in the country’s five-year-old civil war.

The article would specifically mention the use of stand-off weapons like cruise missiles, claiming (emphasis added):

The memo, a draft of which was provided to The New York Times by a State Department official, says American policy has been “overwhelmed” by the unrelenting violence in Syria. It calls for “a judicious use of stand-off and air weapons, which would undergird and drive a more focused and hard-nosed U.S.-led diplomatic process.”

Clearly, then, regardless of the alleged “pretext,” the US sought to escalate military action against Syria and as an incremental prerequisite for eventual regime change, the use of stand-off weapons including cruise missiles has been part of a singular agenda since the Obama administration.

With US policy collapsing both within Syria and around the world, the veneer of partisan politics and convincing narratives used to convince Americans and the world that some sort of legitimate representative government exists in Washington has been peeled away. What is left is a dangerously desperate corporate-financier oligarchy who is pursuing its agenda openly and with little regard to public opinion, international law, or even fear of the consequences of executing such poorly laid plans in front of an increasingly aware and capable alternative “international order.”

Kremlin spokesman says Americans’ attitude towards Russia caused by propaganda

Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov
Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov

NEW YORK, April 1.   –  The Kremlin believes the low of level of Americans’ trust in Russia is a natural consequence of the intense propaganda campaign that has been underway in the US for more than a year now, Russian Presidential Spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said in interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

When asked how he felt about the fact that only 9% of Americans speak well of Russia, according to the latest opinion polls, Peskov noted that this is regrettable, adding that the American audiences “have been a target for severe anti-Russian propaganda” for more than a year.

“Of course, they felt victim of that propaganda and that’s why lots of Americans think Russian hackers are everywhere. Russian hackers are in every fridge. Russian hackers are in every iron,” Peskov said. “But this is not true. Those are fake news, and this is slander,” he emphasized.

Speaking at The Arctic -Territory of Dialogue International Forum on Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin flatly denied the allegations about Russia’s influence on the US presidential race last year. He also voiced the conviction that anti-Russian rhetoric in Washington stems from internal strife between Donald Trump’s supporters and opponents in the US political establishment.

The Trump administration needs time to formulate its thoughts about Russia in a more precise way, but Moscow has enough patience to wait for this, Peskov said.

“We’re patient enough to wait until we understand what are the approaches of the present administration. We understand that they – the present administration – still needs time to be more precise in formulating their main ideas in terms of Russia,” he noted. “The Russian side is ready to be as active as American side is ready,” he added.

Peskov noted that President Putin and President Trump are very much alike in their basic approach to international relations. “So one is standing for national interest of the United States and the other one for the national interest of the Russian Federation. And they understand pretty well that sometimes it is in your national interest to conduct good relationship with a counterpart, ensuring that those relationships are mutually beneficial and ensuring that, that you are really ready to take into account each other’s concern.”

Peskov was asked the question whether Putin preferred Trump during the US election campaign to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. “No, it’s not about preferring someone, it’s about whose ideas are more close to you and whose ideas are more welcomed in Russian public opinion. Let’s not forget about public opinion in our country. It’s very influential and it’s very powerful,” he said.

Andrew “Judge” Napolitano refused to change his story saying he stood by his claim that Barack Obama used British intelligence to wiretap President Donald Trump. FOX News fired him for making that statement on the air on March 21.

“I stand by my statement on surveillance,” Napolitano told Bill Hemmer.

According to Deadline, Napolitano was there to talk about a Fox News report that the FBI allegedly wired a staffer of former Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock, who has been charged with fraud and corruption. But first, Hemmer asked Napolitano about that Obama/Brit intel wiretap claim he first made on Fox & Friends. Napolitano said that was his story and he was sticking to it.

“And the American public needs to know more about this rather than less because of a lot of the government’s surveillance authorities will expire in the fall and there will be a great debate about how much authority we want the government to have to surveil us.”

“We’ll see how the story plays out,” Hemmer said, noncommittally.

“I think a lot more is going to come,” Napolitano responded..

Of course all this raises the question as to why Fox News benched Napolitano in the first place.

Following the joint press conference between Trump and Merkel, in which the president cited Napolitano’s allegation, Fox News reacted immediately saying it “cannot confirm Judge Napolitano’s commentary; Fox News knows of no evidence of any kind that the now President of the United States was surveilled at any time in any way. Full stop,” Shepard Smith said on the network’s air moments after Trump gave his don’t-look-at-me response to the German reporter.

Previously, a spokesperson for British PM Theresa May had called the claims “ridiculous” saying “they should be ignored and we’ve received assurances that these allegations will not be repeated” by the White House, which may explain why Trump pointed the finger at Fox.

It was White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer who initially got the ball rolling, the day before Trump’s Merkel photo-op, admonishing reporters for their coverage of Trump’s Twitter rant about Obama-ordered wiretaps on Trump Tower. To make his case, Spicer read from a prepared list of reports he said support Trump’s claims, including one from a Fox News Channel broadcast.

“On Fox News on March 14, Judge Andrew Napolitano made the following statement: Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command…He didn’t use the NSA, he didn’t use the CIA, he didn’t use the FBI, he didn’t use the Department of Justice. He used GCHQ … the initials from the British intelligence spying agency. By having two people say to them the  president needs transcripts of conversations involving candidate Trump he’s able to get it and no American fingerprints on it.”

[NOTE: In a video Napolitano explains that the NSA and CIA (and other surveillance agencies) collect ALL communications including everyone’s emails and phone conversations, and the President has access to any of these at any time. So what’s all this ridiculous claim that there are privacy rules protecting the American public against surveillance? Such claims are lies and subterfuge. The government surveillance agencies are listening to and watching anyone and everyone all the time.   -ed.]

Exposed: FBI Director James Comey Owned By Deep State Connections

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A review of FBI Director James Comey’s professional history and relationships shows that the Obama cabinet leader — now under fire for his handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton — is deeply entrenched in the big-money cronyism culture of Washington, D.C. His personal and professional relationships — all undisclosed as he announced the Bureau would not prosecute Clinton — reinforce bipartisan concerns that he may have politicized the criminal probe.

These concerns focus on millions of dollars that Comey accepted from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor, Comey’s former membership on a Clinton Foundation corporate partner’s board, and his surprising financial relationship with his brother Peter Comey, who works at the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

Lockheed Martin

When President Obama nominated Comey to become FBI director in 2013, Comey promised the United States Senate that he would recuse himself on all cases involving former employers.

But Comey earned $6 million in one year alone from Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin became a Clinton Foundation donor that very year.

Comey served as deputy attorney general under John Ashcroft for two years of the Bush administration. When he left the Bush administration, he went directly to Lockheed Martin and became vice president, acting as a general counsel.

How much money did James Comey make from Lockheed Martin in his last year with the company, which he left in 2010? More than $6 million in compensation.

Lockheed Martin is a Clinton Foundation donor. The company admitted to becoming a Clinton Global Initiative member in 2010.

According to records, Lockheed Martin is also a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, which paid Bill Clinton $250,000 to deliver a speech in 2010.

In 2010, Lockheed Martin won 17 approvals for private contracts from the Hillary Clinton State Department.

HSBC Holdings

In 2013, Comey became a board member, a director, and a Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee member of the London bank HSBC Holdings.

“Mr. Comey’s appointment will be for an initial three-year term which, subject to re-election by shareholders, will expire at the conclusion of the 2016 Annual General Meeting,” according to HSBC company records.

HSBC Holdings and its various philanthropic branches routinely partner with the Clinton Foundation. For instance, HSBC Holdings has partnered with Deutsche Bank through the Clinton Foundation to “retrofit 1,500 to 2,500 housing units, primarily in the low- to moderate-income sector” in “New York City.”

The Conspiracy Against President Trump

(Note: Trump has no correct answers for America. But as we watch the deep established bureaucracy fight against him they are exposing their ugly, criminal side more than usual.)

 

Paul Craig Roberts

March 20, 2017: Listening today to the broadcast of testimony by FBI Director Comey and National Security Agency Director Admiral Michael Rogers before the House Intelligence Committee (an oxymoron) made it clear that the Democrats, Comey, and Rogers intend conflict with Russia.

The Republicans, for the most part, were interested to know how security leaks targeted at Trump Republicans came from meetings at which only the CIA Director, NSA Director, and FBI director were present. Of course, they did not get an answer, which shows how powerless congressional oversight committees are. Comey repeatedly said that he could not tell the committee anything, because it would confirm that a press leak was true. But, he said, speaking generally and of no specific leak, most leaks come from “someone who heard something” and passes it on to the media, which also explains the inaccuracy of some leaks. In other words, don’t blame us.

The Democrats were out in force to demonize Russia, Putin, and everyone, especially Trump Republicans, who speaks to a Russian even if the person is still a private citizen, as was Gen. Flynn when he recommended to the Russian ambassador that Russia not respond in kind to President Obama’s expulsion of Russian diplomats over Christmas. The Democrats bestowed yet another demonic title on Putin. In addition to being “the new Hitler,” a “thug,” and a “Mafia don,” today Putin became a “tarantula in the center of the spy web.”

The Democrats’ position was that Flynn, by discouraging a Russian tit for tat, had interfered with the Obama regime’s policy of worsening relations between the US and Russia. Some Democrats saw this as treason. Others saw it as proof that Flynn and Trump are in Putin’s pocket, and still others see it as even worse.

The Democrats were also very concerned about lobbyists, if they be Republican, working for Russian interests, including Tillerson, the Secretary of State. The fact that every country employs lobbyists and that the lobbyists don’t always register as foreign agents, such as Israel’s lobbyists, or if news reports at the time were correct, neocon Richard Perle who represented Turkey in Washington. http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/press_box/2003/04/richard_perle_libel_watch_week_4.html

Democrats were also after Gen. Flynn for saying that he had not received money from the Russian government. Flynn received a fee for attending the 10th Anniversary celebration of RT in Moscow. Is RT, a news organization, the Russian government? Its budget is supported by the Russian government, but how does this differ from the US government’s support of the budgets of National Public Radio, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Voice of America? Does this mean that everyone who gives an interview to NPR, Radio Liberty, and VOA is an American agent in the pocket of the US president? If you attend a function of one of these organizations, does it make you an “American agent/dupe”? Will there be a list of these people?

What the Democrats tried to do today was to criminalize everyone who works for better relations between the US and Russia. To be for peace between the nuclear powers is to be a Russian agent and to be put on a list. The Democrats insisted that Russia was an enemy out to get us, and the Democrats had no difficulty getting Comey and Rogers, both Obama appointees, to agree.

Comey and Rogers said that Russia was the main threat to the US, was working against our interests, and intends to harm us. Harming us includes opposing US hegemony and unilateralism. In other words, if the Russian government acts in the interests of Russia, the Russian government is harming the US. From the testimony it clearly emerged that any kind of opposition to anything Washington does is against American interests.

Both Comey and Rogers declared, falsely, that Russia had invaded Ukraine and seized Crimea by force. If Comey and Rogers are so poorly informed that they believe this, they are unfit for office. Crimea has been a part of Russia for 300 years. The population is almost entirely Russian. When the Soviet Union collapsed and Washington broke it apart, the Ukraine became independent for the first time in history. Crimea, which had been transferred by Khrushchev in 1954 from the Russian Soviet Socialist Republic to the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, was included in the transfer on the condition that Russia had a long term lease on the naval base in Crimea.

When Washington’s coup overthrew the democratically elected government in Ukraine, the Russian populations in Crimea, and in the new republics of Luhansk and Donetsk, were attacked and threatened by the neo-nazi elements in eastern Ukraine that had fought for Hitler against the Soviet Union. The populations of these areas voted overwhelmingly to reunite with Russia, from whence they had come. The votes were fair and open. As Crimea is the Russian Navy’s Black Sea base, Crimea was already occupied by Russian forces. For Comey and Rogers to call this an “invasion” displays either ignorance or a lack of integrity.

Indeed, the lack of integrity of the FBI, NSA, CIA, and Obama regime is evidenced by the sustained campaign of lies, distortions, and targeted “news leaks,” that is, stories planted on the presstitutes by the intelligence services about Russian interference in the presidential election. It is all about protecting the massive military/security budget and powers. Trump threatened both the budget and the power when he declared that his policy would be to normalize relations with Russia. If relations are normalized, the carefully orchestrated “Russian threat” disappears. The intelligence services are not willing for this to happen. The US intelligence services prefer the risk of nuclear Armageddon to a budget cut.

The Democrats are probably not sufficiently intelligent to understand that they are fanning the flames of war between nuclear powers. The Democrats are desperate to find someone on whom to pin their loss of the election. Moreover, by pinning it on a conspiracy between Trump and Putin, they hope to remove Trump from office. Although Pence, who is a Russophobe, is acceptable to the military/security complex, the Democrats have hopes of clearing out Pence as well, as his election resulted from the alleged conspiracy, and reinstalling themselves in the White House.

Americans need to understand that the political competition between the Democrats and Republicans is over which party gets to collect the money for being the whore for the One Percent. Traditionally, the party in the White House gets most of the money, so that is where both parties want to be.

Michael Morell, a supporter of Hillary Clinton and President Obama’s last CIA director in an acting capacity, who was slated to become CIA director under Hillary, said, “On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians, there is smoke, but there is no fire, at all. There’s no little campfire, there’s no little candle, there’s no spark. And there’s a lot of people looking for it.” http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/clinton-ally-says-smoke-no-fire-no-russia-trump-collusion-n734176

Morell does believe that it was the Russians who hacked Hillary’s incriminating emails but not in collusion with Trump, although the evidence is that they were a leak from inside the Democratic National Committee by disaffected supporters of Bernie Sanders.

Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said on Meet the Press on March 5 that he had seen no evidence of a Putin-Trump conspiracy when he left office on January 20.

Listening to Comey and Rogers today, if they are not working against President Trump, what would classify as working against Trump? Trump supporters ask why Trump doesn’t fire these two men who are working to block a reduction in the dangerous tensions between Washington and Russia. Are the Democrats, Comey, Rogers, the CIA and their media whores so stupid that they don’t understand what it means when the President of Russia says, “the Americans have destroyed our trust in them?”

Trump doesn’t fire Comey and Rogers, because he cannot fire them. If he fires them, the Democrats and presstitutes will explain the firings as proof that Trump is a Russian agent and is covering up his treason by removing those investigating it.

Trump is trying to use Twitter to respond to the orchestrated media assault against him and to achieve some organization among his supporters, the working class that elected him. However, Trump cannot even count on the Republican Party. Most Republicans are also dependent on political contributions from the military/security complex, and Republicans know that the intelligence agencies have all the dirt on them. To fight for Trump is to expose themselves.

It is undeniable that the CIA controls the media, both in Europe and in the US. Udo Ulfkotte’s book, Gekauftge Journalisten, exposed the CIA’s hold on European journalists when it was published in Germany in 2014. An English language edition, Journalists for Hire: How the CIA Buys the News, is due out in May. In the meantime Joel Whitney’s book, Finks: How the C.I.A. Tricked the World’s Best Writers, suffices to establish that America’s most respected journalists drank the CIA’s Kool-Aid “and thought they were saving freedom” by serving as propagandists. http://www.truthdig.com/avbooth/item/joel_whitney_cia_propaganda_cold_war_scheer_intelligence_20170317

People in the West need to understand that if the news they receive bears on the interests of the US military/security complex, the news is scripted by the CIA. The CIA serves its interests, not the interests of the American people or the interests of peace.
