It would not be surprising to find that many people outside of the U.S. are confused, and wonder what exactly is going on in the United States with the investigation of President Trump, and the charges against him and the "Russians". Most are probably familiar with the official story, that Russia meddled in the 2016 election, that Trump colluded with the Russians, and then obstructed efforts to find the evidence, as this has been repeated endlessly in the German press.
"The world is going to end in twelve years if we don't address climate change."
This comment, from newly-elected Democratic Party Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez from New York, exemplifies the problem facing her party in its efforts to remove President Trump, or stop him from breaking out of the containment imposed on him by the fake Russiagate scandal. Party leaders have invested their hopes for containing or removing Trump in the Russiagate investigation of legal hitman Robert Mueller, which has failed to uncover any impeachable acts by Trump. The top Democrat in the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, publicly stated this week that, barring some unexpected finding, she opposes proceeding with a drive for impeachment. For the moment, most party officials, including Select Intelligence Committee chairman Schiff—who has been fanatically pursuing an impeachment track—are backing Pelosi. The rationale given, besides the absence of an impeachable offense, is that a failed impeachment drive would evoke sympathy for Trump, and make him unbeatable in the 2020 election.
A narrative for the deluded now dominates the nation’s media. The story goes that Democrats in the House of Representatives, flush from their victory last November, are now acting to re-impose the “rule of law” and to put an end to the corruption within the Trump Presidency.
After Former FBI Deputy Director McCabe Publicly Confirms FBI Plotted Coup Against Trump, Coup Plotters Escalate
SOTU: Neocons in Both Parties Erupt Against Trump as He Calls for "Cooperation, Compromise and the Common Good"
The gang of neocons and neoliberals in the United States, which is committed to defending the global interests of the collapsing British Empire, has escalated its efforts in the last weeks to thwart President Trump's strategic initiatives, at the same time it is escalating its drive to remove him from office. They have launched a bipartisan legislative offensive against him, while simultaneously intensifying their campaign against Russia and China, the two major nations Trump has identified repeatedly as among those with which he wants friendship and cooperation.
On January 25, a pre-dawn raid, conducted by more than twenty FBI agents brandishing heavy weaponry and wearing body armor, was carried out against long-time Donald Trump ally Roger Stone. Let us be very clear—this action was, and is, intended to send a chilling message to anyone wishing to speak out or defend President Donald Trump. The threat is clear: “If you persist in defending Trump, you may yourself become a target of an out-of-control special counsel.”
The pre-dawn raid on the home of Roger Stone on January 25, in which armor-clad FBI agents brandishing weapons pounded on his front door, in front of a TV camera, was scripted like a scene out of a movie. In this case, the target was not a notorious terrorist, a violent narcotics trafficker, or a murderous psychopath, but a well-known, successful political consultant, who is charged with crimes such as "lying to the Congress." In a release from LaRouchePAC, it is described as "yet another Mueller 'bombshell' in which the crime alleged has been created by Mueller, based on harassing and bankrupting potential witnesses—a so-called process crime for falling into created perjury traps—a concocted crime that has nothing to do with Trump himself."
A call by a group of sixty prominent Americans to reopen the investigations of four assassinations in the 1960s has a special resonance today, at a time of legitimately heightened skepticism about "official" pronouncements coming from government agencies, especially those tied to military and intelligence networks. The group, which calls itself a "Truth and Reconciliation Committee", has proposed setting up an oversight capability for the release of all documents related to the Kennedy assassination and presidency, as well as a public inquest into the other three assassinations in that tumultuous decade, of Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and Sen. Robert Kennedy. Members of the group include Isaac Newton Farris, Jr., a nephew of Dr. King; Rev. James A. Lawson, a close associate of King; Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, two children of Robert Kennedy; Daniel Ellsberg, whose release of the "Pentagon Papers" exposed the lies behind the build-up of the Vietnam War; filmmaker Oliver Stone; and historians, journalists, and experts who have investigated the assassinations.
