The Mueller Indictments and The Trump-Putin Summit: Triumph of the Deep State?

Ron Paul Jul 16, 2018

undefined

The term “deep state” has been so over-used in the past few years that it may seem meaningless. It has become standard practice to label one’s political adversaries as representing the “deep state” as a way of avoiding the defense of one’s positions. President Trump has often blamed the “deep state” for his political troubles. Trump supporters have created big conspiracies involving the “deep state” to explain why the president places neocons in key positions or fails to fulfill his campaign promises.

Is President Trump A Traitor Because He Wants Peace With Russia?

Paul Craig Roberts Jul 17, 2018

undefined

The US Democratic Party is determined to take the world to thermo-nuclear war rather than to admit that Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election fair and square. The Democratic Party was totally corrupted by the Clinton Regime, and now it is totally insane. Leaders of the Democratic Party, such as Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, my former co-author in the New York Times, have responded in a non-Democratic way to the first step President Trump has taken to reduce the extremely dangerous tensions with Russia that the Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama regimes created between the two superpowers.

Yes, Russia is a superpower. Russian weapons are so superior to the junk produced by the waste-filled US military/security complex that lives high off the hog on the insouciant American taxpayer that it is questionable if the US is even a second class military power. If the insane neoconservatives, such as Max Boot, William Kristol, and the rest of the neocon scum get their way, the US, the UK, and Europe will be a radioactive ruin for thousands of years.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi (CA), Minority Leader of the US House of Representatives, declared that out of fear of some undefined retribution from Putin, a dossier on Trump perhaps, the President of the United States sold out the American people to Russia because he wants to make peace: “It begs the question, what does Vladimir Putin, what do the Russians have on Donald Trump—personally, politically and financially that he should behave in such a manner?” The “such a manner” Pelosi is speaking about is making peace instead of war.

US And Allies Planning Evacuation Of White Helmets From Syria

Tyler Durden Jul 17, 2018

Perhaps we are about to witness the final chapter to the controversial White Helmets saga?

As we've detailed many times before both the West and the group's leadership have long claimed it's nothing but a humanitarian non-governmental organization (NGO) devoted to rescuing Syrian's in the midst of war; however, new reports reveal the US and UK are mulling plans to evacuate the group's members who, far from being a "neutral" NGO, are funded by Western governments which have simultaneously sought the ouster of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

US government officials say White Helmets members are in "imminent danger" and face the threat of assassination as pro-government forces advance deeper into southwest Syria.

CNN reports the following based on diplomatic sources:

The fate of some 1,000 volunteers and their family members, and the need to plan a possible evacuation for them, has become a focus of discussions of several countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, France and Canada, according to a diplomatic source familiar with the subject and two administration officials.
And CNN reports further that President Trump broached the subject at the NATO summit in Brussels last week...

Trump-Putin Fallout: Bipartisan Hysteria Against Peace

July 17Former CIA director John Brennan thinks President Trump's meeting with Russian president Putin is "treasonous" and he -- disturbingly -- warns him to "stop it." Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) actually calls for the military to move against its commander in chief, who he claims is "in the hands of our enemy." Others have called the Trump-Putin meeting "another Pearl Harbor." The mainstream media churns out exactly the same headline: Trump threw the intelligence community under the bus" by meeting with Putin and expressing skepticism over claims that the Russians hacked the 2016 US presidential election. What's behind the hysteria? Tune in to today's Liberty Report:

Mueller Indicts 12 Russians - Should the Trump-Putin Summit be Cancelled?
In a surprise move yesterday, Special Council Robert Mueller announced an indictment of 12 Russians he claims are employees of Russian military intelligence over alleged hacking into the Democratic National Committee computers as well as those of Hillary Clinton's campaign. While the indictment claims the alleged Russian efforts had no impact on the election, its announcement just days before an historic Trump-Putin summit meeting in Helsinki has skeptics very suspicious of the timing. Mueller knows that the alleged Russian spies will never have to stand trial in the US and thus he will never have to provide any proof for his assertions. Is this the Deep State trying to deep-six any rapproachement between the US and Russia? RPI Executive Director Daniel McAdams, interviewed here on RT, can be counted as one of the skeptics...
