The Deep State plot to undermine the president...

The Conspiracy Against Trump

Philip Giraldi Apr 23, 2019

undefined

The real “deplorable” in today’s United States is the continuation of a foreign policy based on endless aggression to maintain Washington’s military dominance in parts of the world where Americans have no conceivable interest. Many voters backed Donald J. Trump because he committed himself to changing all that, but, unfortunately, he has reneged on his promise, instead heightening tension with major powers Russia and China while also threatening Iran and Venezuela on an almost daily basis.

The Three Purposes of Russiagate

Paul Craig Roberts Apr 23, 2019

undefined

Russiagate has three purposes.

One is to prevent President Trump from endangering the vast budget and power of the military/security complex by normalizing relations with Russia.

Another, in the words of James Howard Kunstler, is “to conceal the criminal conduct of US government officials meddling in the 2016 election in collusion with the Hillary Clinton campaign,” by focusing all public and political attention on a hoax distraction.

The third is to obstruct Trump’s campaign and distract him from his agenda when he won the election.

Despite the inability of Mueller to find any evidence that Trump or Trump officials colluded with Russia to steal the US presidential election, and the inability of Mueller to find evidence with which to accuse Trump of obstruction of justice, Russiagate has achieved all of its purposes.

Governing Ukraine is No Laughing Matter

Comedy, it is often said, is unusual people in real situations and farce is real people in unusual situations. No doubt, it can be said that by electing comedian Vladimir Zelensky as their new president in a landslide victory in Sunday’s runoff, the people of Ukraine find themselves in a farcical situation. To be sure, the country’s embrace of an inexperienced showman represented a verdict on three decades of political failure.

Ukraine’s first president in the ‘post-Soviet’ era Leonid Kuchma told the Russian paper Komsomolskaya Pravda, “Ukraine is tired of its politicians, who for 28 years have been unable to organise life, deliver democracy, well-being or peace. The people are tired, and believe it’s time to turn over a new page.”

The Ukrainian voters perceived Zelensky as an upright candidate, a straightlaced and open person without a corruption-related past, who personified hope. He was quite tight-lipped about his policies or even about the team he’s picked to govern Ukraine. In fact, it’s a bit too early to form a full opinion about this political rookie.

Mueller Exonerates Trump, But 'Russiagate' Will Not Die

Apr. 18 - Today's extraordinary release of the Mueller Report tracks closely with Attorney General Barr's recent summary: no collusion between the Trump campaign or any American with the Russians to help get Trump elected. Do not expect this to improve relations with Russia, however. There are poison pills in the report that ensure the push to war with Russia - in Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America - will continue. Investigative reporter Anya Parampil joins today's Liberty Report:

Why Bernie Sanders Can Defeat Donald Trump in 2020
With his veto this week of legislation intended to end United States military support for the war on Yemen, President Donald Trump may have ensured his defeat to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in the 2020 presidential election. That is an argument political commentator Patrick J. Buchanan persuasively presents in a new editorial.

‘Fort Trump’: Poland Ready for US Military Base
The Poles seem desperate to have a permanent US military base on their territory. They even promised to kick in two billion dollars and name it "Fort Trump" if the US agrees. The two countries are reportedly on the verge of making a deal. Does Warsaw really believe Russia is about to launch invasion of Europe? For what purpose? RPI Director Daniel McAdams joins RT America to discuss "Fort Trump," the CIA lying to Trump on the Skripals, and the Mueller Report...

Debate: Omar & AOC Join Rand Paul & Republicans to Urge Syria Withdrawal
What's the main message in a bi-partisan, bicameral letter sent by ten Members and Senators to President Trump urging a full US withdrawal from Syria? In this RT America debate, RPI's Daniel McAdams suggests it's a way for Congress to encourage the president that he does have some support in Washington for his declared intention to get US troops out of Syria. Trump may be only hearing neocon opinion opposed to such a withdrawal. Is it a foolish, sham move, or a pretty good strategy? Watch the debate...

McAdams: 'Trump White House is a "Cult" under Bolton'
How is it that President Trump's national security advisor John Bolton seems to actually be running things and even over-riding his boss's foreign policy? As RPI Director Daniel McAdams tells Rick Sanchez of RT America, it's because he's frozen everyone else from the intelligence and national security community out and insists on controlling all information that gets to the president. It is similar to the role played by Bolton's ideological comrades in the run-up to the 2003 Iraq war: Keep control of the president and make sure he sees nothing that contradicts what is your desired policy...
