Saker commentary: this is not about picking sides, the enemy of my enemy is NOT my friend. However, as Malcolm X once said, “I am for the truth no matter who tells it”. There are lies in this text, beginning with entire section about how great the US is doing. As for the segment about Israel, I just wonder what color Trump’s tongue is by now. Whatever color, it is kosher for sure.
But that is not the point.
It is in his accusations against Pelosi, Schiff and the rest of them that Trump is 100% right. And that is much more important than his bombastic flag-waving and lies. Besides, he clearly did not write this text anyway, it is way too good and he is way too stupid. But I am pretty sure that he carefully read it and approved it. So this is not only an official document, it is a historical one!
Request to all: if you see any US media posting the full letter, please let me know in the comments section. I have not listened to the US media in years, and I don’t want to, so I really don’t know. And in this case, I really would like to know who many US media outlets have refused to post the full text of such an important statement by the US President
Circulate this letter amongst your friends and contacts! It is crucial to show the true face of these Dems (not including Tulsi Gabbard) and to prevent them from succeeding. They are the only party right now whose arrival to power could signal a possible war between Russia and the US. We all have to do all we can to prevent that.
Still, my personal prediction is that the Dems are committing suicide with this entire impeachment business. But let’s not be naive, there are almost as many deep-staters and Neocons in the GOP as there are in the Dem party. So please resist the temptation of saying that one is better than the other. They are different, yes. But one is not better than the other.
The enemy is not one person, or any party. It is the entire system which is both demonic and unreformable.
That is our real enemy.
Always keep that in mind.
Here’s a link, not read it all yet
The letter is well written and contains sound logic…obvious proof in itself that this is not Drumpf’s handiwork.
In the NBC page that the link refers to they introduce the letter by saying, “President Donald Trump sent a rambling six-page letter … ”
Of course, it is not rambling at all. It is dead on point. NBC may be relying on people not reading it. This is a common propaganda ploy used by the media. You discredit it in the introduction, emphasize that it is six pages, put the letter in a small window and hope no one reads it.
Very common tactic. That way they can claim that they published it and hope that it has no effect.
I hope people read it.
My reaction is larger than to Trump, the Dems, politics, soft coup, impeachment and the whole Deep State nullification of the democratic election of 2016.
The Republic has been hijacked. The citizens have zero power.
Ultimately, the American people will have to fight another bloody revolution against the Shadow Government Tyranny that is running the government. Else? Else they will be turned into serfs.
The social contract implicit in the Constitution is based on Rule of Law. That system has been overthrown by the Shadow Government and Deep State. Just follow the three years of FBI, DOJ, State Dept and the federal courts from regional, appellate to Supreme Court. Its all a travesty of Justice.
This letter is being discussed on Fox News right now.
What the people have to do is amass 1-2 million people in the DC streets and demand prosecution of all the corrupt FBI, DOJ and Dems who have been corrupt. The facts name the culprits from Kiev to DC and back again.
Without street power, nothing will change.
It is an attempted coup d’etat … no doubt about that. It has been going on for three years now.
I used to be a Democrat, but this who farce has so sickened me that I will never have anything to do with them again.
Oh you must of missed it for this coup has been an ongoing affair ever since they killed JFK in Dallas in 1963,the murder of King and the other peace lovers in the country stilled the rest of the population as propaganda took over,the war in Nam was a prelude for taking us off the gold standard so they could print endless money with no repercussions.
If I was a betting person I would bet that Kissengers and Nixon trip to China was to cop a deal where the western capitalist would fund the building of new plants,equipment and the know how to run them,all China had to do was furnish the cheap labor.Then shortly after that the old worn out actor came to town it was the capitalist wet dream for they they now had their man in office, they could write their own bills,create off-shore accounts to stash their profits in, safe from the taxman or any other agency,people just can’t fathom how far down the road evil looks as they weave their lies, plans and magic.!!!
I don’t buy the Warren Report but I am still not convinced that JFK’s murder was a coup d’etat.
Maybe I am wrong and it was a coup. I don’t know. I have read an awful lot of about it. It is pretty clear that something dirty went down, but by whom and for what, I don’t know.
Very interest book out there called “Why They Killed JFK And Why It Matters” you should get a copy and read it,very well researched and documented, eye witnessed from those that it touched who feared to come forward at the time seeing there had been so many deaths,when I believe it was R,K. ‘s wife was ask by the Russian leader if they had any idea of who was behind it, she replied yes it was a right wing conspiracy,and she was right, for JFK was going to destroy the Fed. going to destroy the C.I.A. going to end the subsidize on oil that the oil robber barons were receiving,his warning about secret societies and their danger to America and its people..Get it read it for knowledge and truth are your best weapons to fight the evil we have permitted to grow in this country, before it becomes totally a fascist country!!!!
If you read just one book about the JFK assassination read this one:
James K. Douglass, The Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters.
It starts with a review of postwar history and politics from Truman to Ike. That is necessary to set the stage for what happened during JFK’s presidency, how he himself changed, he and RFK took on many of the entrenched power structures of American society (and how they were related and intertwined), thus creating a whole panoply of powerful enemies. Douglass does not name a culprit. But he presents enough informatoin to readers to come to their own conclusions, or keep digging. Personally I go further than Douglass and I currently am persuaded that LBJ was actually the spearhead of the the plot.
There are a number of pretty detailed, analytical reviews at Amazon. If you don’t have time to read the book you can get a good idea of the territory Douglass covers.
I don’t agree, if it’s a coup d’etat, it is sort of like General Jinjur’s version of a coup d’etat, just totally ineffectual. I see it as a political posturing opportunity by congress members to give the impression of doing something for the people when they’re not.
“Hijacked” is precisely the word. I’ve been using it myself. The State has become a tool to be used by a few for their own ends to the detriment of the American people.
NYT published the letter too.
The Republic has been hijacked. The citizens have zero power.
That is EXACTLY my feeling too.
The USA, for all its true successes and no less true failings, is now being hijacked. This is not a political issue anymore, this is a national security emergency.
Time will show if there are enough people in the USA to realize it and take action.
God help us all!
I fear the Republic has been hijacked back in 1776, when free mason George Washington began a rebellion known as the American Revolution. The Rothschild’s financed both him and the British Crown. The two party system in the US creates an illusion of ‘democracy’ at work. The elite controls both political parties, as it does the media. When a citizen of the US, who is not member of the elite, decides to run for President, he ends up like JFK. In the case of Trump, the JFK scenario was not implemented, as it would have been going too far. Instead the media and Congress were used to vilify him, which basically backfired. Now the elite in the US are in an even worse position, having to explain such ‘trivia’ as the division of wealth, the unemployment, the debt, etc.
Rothschild probably made sure that the british crown did not send enough troops. Rothschild wanted America, the United States , for a total economic hegemony for himself having created ownership of large areas that needed the security of a state system, and out of reach of the british crown. Subsequently George Washington was handed the victory and created the matching constitution of democratic republic ruled by the people.
However for Rothschild this was according to his deceptions, a step towards usurping that people’s republic. Political parties were introduced in order to manage the republic an illusion of democracy. We see that clearly today as the elements of the constitution are being wiped out little by little over time, and nearing the final stages of a total wipeout.
The judiciary system run by politcal hacks. The office of the president a joke. What is left then is the original totalitarian state (of the Rothschilds).
Actually, the U.S. Constitution game to be from the Constitution of the Indian tribes, namely the Iroquois Nation. It sort of was this booger that somehow got stuck onto the new nation by the local politics at the time. The elites have been trying to shake that booger loose ever since. Federick Douglass provided the elites no help when he redefined people in “We the People” to mean All people.
Its refreshing to see one who has read his history of our Constitution and the Six Nations and their form of government.!!!
Actually the intellectual –and otherwise– leaders of the American economy were, crucially, The Carey family (father [Matthew] and son (Henry). Matthew was an escapee/refuge from his homeland, Ireland, and very much against “The British System”. Their leadership on how to organize banking (and an economy generally) was called, in the the early 19th century, “The American system”. It was they and Alexander Hamilton, who set up the National Bank [not properly speaking a “Central Bank”) to foster physical improvements in tools and productive processes and intellectual improvements in the workforce. They added Alexander Hamilton among others to their circle of the “American System” think tank (as one would call it today.
And here a note on how Americans are mis-taught the better parts of early American/USA history. The Broadway musical “Hamilton” completely leaves out any of the robust past of Hamilton-cum-fiends of the American System movement. It plays up, as many here might know, the “heartwarming” line of poor immigrant “colored boy” makes good in America. (But totally leaves out his patrons’ projects and whatever Hamilton– from his own thinking–may have contributed to this project.
Furthermore, contrast this set of policies with that of the British elite (and their propagandist and operative, John Locke, in the matter of The Great Recoinage of 1696.
Its a humanitarian disaster the lokes of which had been predicted. And it can be reversed but not with a million people storming the streets with demands, but with one person, courage, a mechanism, and an iron clad case against the gvt.
All these things are in place and simply waiting to spring into action.
More than street power is needed, Trump needs to assert his lawful power and bring these corrupt law enforcement and intelligence officials to justice. Why they are allowed to commit open ended crimes while not being held accountable is an affront to the rule of law, which applies as ever to the rest of us. If it’s required to do so, as stated by another member below, Trump can assemble a group of marines and execute raids on all persons and organizations that have flagrantly violated the constitution of the United States. This bold deep state agenda will never cease unless it is met with the full power of the law, from the highest authority in the land.
I know the fear inside the administration is that such an action would lead to a concerted hysteria in the mockingbird media, and an ensuing riot among the deluded lemmings of the far left – but there is no other road left to take, justice must make a stand or else it all crumbles into a state of lawless chaos, where any hope of systemic justice will forever be lost.
Do what you will with this info, but in the current paradigm NOBODY is going to jail. Wrong as it may be, guilty as they may be, NOBODY is going to jail. Nobody went to jail over 9/11. Nobody went to jail over crashing the economy. Nobody went to jail over 2 fake wars built on lies and costing a million lives. Nobody went to jail for warrantless wiretapping that is still going on. Nobody went to jail over giving $15 trillion new dollars to foreign banks under TARP. NOBODY is going to jail. Period. And that should really miss you off. Maybe enough to do something.
You are 100% correct. I participated in stopping the Vietnam War/MIC pork barrel in the 60’s so I know it can be done. We took casualties, off duty cops provided False Flags and people I know died. But even though it’s America, the most violent country, (IsraHell isn’t a country) it doesn’t have to be that way.
I witnessed the French rise up and halt a telecommunications $ hike in the early 2000s. I saw over a million people gather peacefully in the Champs-Elysees. Fully armored riot police vehicles showed up by thousands. As an American I thought for sure it was going to be a massacre. But the police didn’t carry guns. And their attitude was – jovial – this was the way that they solved their problems. The Gov dropped the rate hike and the people (including the police) partied all night. I know times are different but this needs to be our goal.
Larchmonter I don’t disagree but sadly looking at the people I often work with on both climate and massive pentagon spending, a big chunk of them were out marching for impeachment, the pussy heads were one of the biggest marches we have had! We have a society that is falling apart and the pussy hats thought they could save it by getting rid of Trump. They were not out when when the democrats with majority numbers pasted the massive military budget, they were not out when they gutted welfare, they were not out when they passed the new and improved fisa, no they got their dammed pussy hat on to save us from trump, so we can be sucker punched once again by the elite dems. I am disgusted by the ignorance of the american people! In all fairness I watched the same thing with healthcare, from the republicans. Out marching against socialism, mostly from people either on social security or in the military, who I would nicely point out we’re benefiting from socialism!
Thank you, Larchmonter–The real change in our country, and in our world is going to have to happen from “the bottom” and work its way up.
Unfortunately, I don’t see this happening for another 25 000 years. People in this country think the government has all the solutions. Good Lord Almighty, help! If “the government” truly had all the solutions, the first one –starting with the president, and working its way down–would be mass resignations. They have an agenda that includes our deaths, so yes, I am a little passionate about this, okay? Is Trump some kind of god that creation just can’t go on without him? Has this man ever gotten on his knees and begged the true Creator for forgiveness, or is he too good for that? Out of 330 million people in this country this is what we get for a president? ? ? This has got to be some kind of divine judgement. A house divided against itself cannot stand.
In the strange math of the elite, most of us are worth more dead than alive, and yes, I admit, I hate them for that. Many of these former government officials –if they had a shred of honor–would then fall on their swords, and take themselves out, because failing that, we (underline we ten times) are going to suffer their awful karma. Great, huh? I cannot help but wonder if Trump, the great divider, were to somehow vanish, the world would would keep on turning without him just fine.
“Hijacked” is precisely the word to describe what has happened to our American government.
The Grey Lady (NYT) did too.
I saw this someplace in MSM, sorry I don’t remember and searched and can no longer find it. Most of the MSM just states it’s unhinged, crazy or something of the sort. You actually read it and it is well thought out, I agree probably not written by the Trumpster himself. I have seen the letter in it’s entirety on Facebook.
As the Saker said the system is demonic and unreformable. I have not an ounce of pity or sympathy for Trump or the system. He is trying to be overthrown by the demonic Dems as he is trying to over throw Assad, Maduro and of course many many others. Tear the system down, rip it out by the evil roots. Maybe the people will awaken then to create a more just and functional system free from the corporate lobby, Wall Street, mic, and Israel.
Yes… completely to the point. What the dems are doing to Trump he is doing to others internationally. Double standards. Or is it Trump has no power over the foreign neo-liberals controlling foreign policy?
Geez. The President is totally correct with what he writes. So, then how are we ever going to get rid of him?
well, according to the Founding Father, the next election is the way to deal with this issue.
Impeachment on fallacious grounds is NOT.
Yes absolutely, but what I meant was how does anyone conscientiously vote Democrat when the Democrats behave as they are doing?
This whole impeachment thing is going to backfire on the Democrats come next year like they can’t imagine*. I can’t imagine what is in their brains; or are they pre-emptively trashing their chances at next year’s election out of fear that Sanders or Warren will win the Democratic primaries, and then possibly winning the Presidency over Trump?
* The one thing I learned about U.S. elections is there is this entity which I call the “fickle left” This is your true liberal/progressive/environmentalist/antiwar/peace crowd. About all of the other democratic so called liberals are fakes. This true left represents only about 2% of the Democratic party; not much but just enough to tip an election. If they do not like the Democratic candidate, they stay home and the Republicans will win as they are more willing to deal with a Republican President rather than a fake leftist. That is what happened in 2016, but the main line Democrats won’t admit it.
They actually believe that what they are doing is correct, but like a rerun (that the democrats haven’t seen) where the ending is a known, they will become the victim of their own success once Uncle Joe becomes the fall guy.
In hind site they will lose their seats in congress because of their ignorance or elementary approach to corruption and partisan policy politics. I really think its the beginning of the end for the democratic party, those left to try to defend their party will drown in their own tears.
Indeed they do.
My wife and I have very good and honest friends who SINCERELY believe that impeaching Trump is the only way to save “America”. The level of indoctrination in the USA of 2019 is way WAAAAAAY worse that it was in the Soviet Union under, say, Brezhnev and after.
This is the danger: a lot of people CORRECTLY see all the failings, sins and lies of Trump, but they don’t understand that:
1. What the Dems are doing is an anti-constitutional coup
2. If the Dems succeed, this will get worse, much much worse
And I see no credible third party force out there.
That is the real problem: this system is SO corrupt that it is totally unreformable.
God help us all!
I totally agree.
Just In my own very agricultural way, I think of a functional healthy democracy as being rather like a three-legged stool…[the seat type…not the other…I don’t have communist beliefs in spite of what the moronic Greg Hunter claims].
Leg #1 an educated and well-informed population
Leg #2 a non-partisan press whose sole agenda is to honestly inform the public
Leg #3 an election system that is fair, not tampered with, and accurately posts a result that reflects the will of the people
Clearly it only takes one of these legs to be is missing for the stool to fall over.
The US stool has all three legs missing. It lies on the ground in a chaotic broken pile of rubble. The task of reassembling it is as far as can see is insurmountable. By definition, each of these components must be intact before the rebuild can even begin.
Just me, but I am damned if I can visualize how the process can get off the ground. By all means, enlighten me if any of you see a solution to this diabolical mess…but pleeeeease… try not to mention the word, Trump!
don’t know whether it is fair to blame democrats outside the beltway, but it seems that most inside the beltway are so caught up in trump derangement syndrome and psychological trauma from having Hillary Clinton lose in 2016 that they are no longer able to think clearly.
I totally agree with you.
I read the corporate media headlines:
It is truly hard to believe how whacked out the US media has become.
The only thing that’s new is that now the web provides a forum .
Corrupt government: nothing new.
Instant interactive global news: never been done before.
I don’t know.
Always corrupt? Yes.
But this crazy?
I am not sure about that.
Honestly, this started with the Bidens doing something that absolutely begged for an investigation. Now they are impeaching the President for trying to have it investigated. The whole thing with the Bidens is being treated as if it didn’t even happen.
The whole thing is just crazy.
It’s called hutzba, in your face insults to intelligence.
Look at all the false flags since 911
Seven countries in five years
Thing is that I know people that get all their news from MSN, including popular web sites
I’ve been following this crap since the 70s with the JFK murder
I recall spending weeks at a university library and just days reading info. With the web this has changed. Our discourse is an example
Short answer is: yes, it has been much worse. But there were only three channels to lie
Now we have the saker and other sources
PS, sorry I’m using a tablet, when I have keyboard ready I can expand
I agree with Larchmonter. Trump should get a battalion of marines by going to a base giving the LC the order and grab Washington field office of the FBI. As per FBI rules give all of them lie detector tests about Boston bombing , San Bernadino shooting, Vegas shooting, and Florida school shooting, Orlando Nightclub. When they fail the lie detector tests, fire them. FBI must be cleaned up.
Demand the JFK files (congress passed law) from the CIA. If they are redacted start firing people starting with Bloody Gina. Any intelligent objective person knows Skripal was a UK false flag incident. By saying it was the Russians, Bloody Gina revealed herself incompetent or a traitor loyal to the NWO Oligarchy.
With the Amazon movie about Brennan’s CIA spying on Congress playing now, it is the right time.
But you forget these are the people Trump picked the people he surrounds himself with, from fat boy to Pence to all the rest of the hold overs that served in other administrations, so who do you blame,me I blame the head the rest are only hold overs waiting for the next administration to take office.!!!!
‘fat boy’…luv it!!
Its a rambling letter and there are several hands involved, one of which is definitely Trump’s, too much self congratulation. Its not a legal letter – its too emotional.
The “historic” thing about it, is not its contents, but that such a document needs to be created and published. A massive admission of systemic failure. The US has no future is what I took away from this. Its eating itself.
You are inverting things here.
Its a *rambling* letter and there are **several hands involved**, ***one of which is definitely Trump’s**
****too much self congratulation***’. *****Its not a legal letter***** – *******its too emotional.*******’
When you break down every sentence it is negative to Trump with a few opinions (presented as facts), thought stopping cliches, if you see what I mean (a propaganda technique) and emphasis another one (bold or in this case – the hyphen)
The “historic” thing about it, *is not its contents*, but that such a document needs to be created and published.
1 combines with rambling inversion before to imply it does not need to be read. It also slyly suggests Trump is in trouble by putting quotes around historic to suggest it is not the opinion of the writer.
A *massive* admission of systemic *failure*.
The US has *no future* is what **I took away from this**. Its **eating itself.**
Thought stopping cliches and emotive language. (No mention of course of the Democrats or the deep state.)
3 Injection of reality but without a solution so trying to create passive apathy.
In my opinion this is a Hasbara troll using latest propaganda techniques unsuccessfully..
not seeing it in the G&M.
Wondering why didn’t he use Twitter to disseminate his letter far and wide?
Of the topic though, Trump’s signature looks like a drawing of the barbed wire.
No question whatsoever the letter was crafted by Trump’s own hand. Every word of it is Trump’s. He is not stupid. He is somewhat ignorant but he is not stupid. He does have some kind of genius. To think otherwise is folly. He has tremendous power. The problems for the world are that his ignorances are pan and multidomain, and he is a gambler with an ego.
Such a letter is not crafted by one person. Someone has to type it, someone has to proofread it, someone has run the fact checker over it; someone has to run the legal ruler over it. Then there are the wordsmiths – Trump is incapable of so many sentences – its like a Hollywood movie script. They have to check it goes OK with the focus groups and wont upset minorities. They put a few of the Orange man’s soundbites in, probably to placate him in a meltdown. There is nothing in this letter that any sentient being doesn’t already know.
‘There is nothing in this letter that any sentient being doesn’t already know.’
The exacty opposite is true. Let people read it and make their own minds up.
No question it was signed off by Trump.
Who drafted it is less important.
It is now a historical FACT that cannot be ignored at several levels.
Parts have historical tone — parts pander to the tabloids.
It is a carefully crafted mish-mash (no doubt worked on by many of the highest paid in town) that has a slice for everyone — including the ‘deplorables’ who will soak up the trashy tit-bits and see it as their “voice” taking on the parasites in the Congress et al.
Trump is in election cycle mode and just blew the starter’s whistle after the trouncing the muddled-snowflake-postwhateveritistoday-dipshits-who-just-don’t-get-it over in the UK went down in flames.
Pelosi just got grabbed by the …. and now everyone can see what is behind the kimono — and it ain’t nice, folks!
Like Corbyn, she was uneasy with the whole impeachment strategy but now she owns it and is going to have to take the heat.
Trump’s “Rope a Dope” just came to 8th Round (and in that he is following Putin’s lead) — and now the roaches are right under the spotlight.
Double bind — Trump wins if they back off. Trump wins if they go the Senate (and likely more so).
What these “D” cretins don’t realise is, that no one really gives a fu_k these days. On with the Show!
Trump has some abilities of perception… linear to some objective depth but not breadth…nor cross referencing them … mainly for only his interests and someone elses where it might coincide
Everything You Wanted To Know About Impeachment (But Were Afraid To Ask On Twitter)
This to me is just normal politics US style, but greatly revealed. There may be good ‘intentions’ but it is shallow. Please refer to one of Trump’s tweets today.

11:09 AM – 17 Dec 2019
Now, if we have to decide on what is bs and what is not, I think The Letter is equally as much BS as this tweet.
Same style, same consciousness – this empire must fall.
With no beef for me, and just my unfounded imagination, I go further…
If DJT is winning, why would he send a OPEN letter now?
Sadly USSA is so programmed to zoom in on ANY circus they throw out, like the moth to the flame, and they get burn and killed at the end and if they have any thinking ability by then, they finally would question, who did what? But it will be all too late, like all the ‘list’ many here has noted…
Why now? Why letter? Is the letter a code? a secret-pledge message? a cultist-symbolism alphabetic character document?!
“they’ are not your ordinary sane ‘human’. One should learn (quickly) to assess all they ‘do’, ‘think’ ‘eat’ and even ‘shit’ in that filter-analysis.
At least one should question, learn to question, the motive of the person/team of persons that letter, and not just focus on the content of the letter.
We dont even know if DJT and team penned it. Could be his mater handlers. Or his enemy’s enemy. No?
Its a 5D chess, THE PPL!
Has anyone consider/analyse if Pence does become POTUS, what would happen then? (OPEN question)
A) Another day
B) Red Line EVERYTHING Crisis triggered… finally
Pence is an evangelical rapturist lunatic…so to answer your question in a word… total disaster.
One thing I have noticed when it comes to US politics…no matter how diabolical you think the person is that currently holds office there is always some creature eagerly waiting in the wings that is even worse.
***I get no beef from the show and only my unfounded imagination…
I’d give DJT this credit → This is ALL-IN maxed out high stake gamble
It would require a TOTALLY Unshakeable hands to steer the script line by line, or even character by character…
If DJT lose – he will crash and burn and USSA will be confirmed outright bankrupt and the dollar will confirmed dead – no more hiding no need to no more
If DJT survives – He will become ‘like god’ and he may just upgrade to 6D chess and OH BOY you will hate it MOR…
Never think this is anywhere remotely about Dem vs Rep, or Polios vs DJT.
This is about ‘the last hour of USSR’… a fitting Xmas gift from Mr Global?!
If DJT roll the dice and got the number he wanted, you will have a “new Atlantis”, he will almost assuredly kill of the old-USSA. Without mercy btw… and the bloodless will become bloody…
If he didn’t get the number he wanted, He will RUN… since its unprofitable for him to hang around… He don’t have the 30K specialist military assets that was allocated to Barry allegedly…
THE PPL, pls note, all the other SUPER POWERS are watching the direction of the winds…
→ this is NOT your local domestic show only…
since they too can use history-in-making to ‘solve’ some problems on their turf…
So far all parties has fulfilled their agreement on bloodless war…
No we are not in peace time dear
Still the collateral damage statistics (think current unaccounted? cost and future cost) is still way too high for my liking…
Yet I cannot refute ‘them’ that many of THE PPL of the world has chosen ‘stupid’ as their way of existence…
Just as – One cannot save a republic whose foundation has been completely (Your choice of word)
How can ONE save one who wilfully plunge into darkness that must lead only to ‘Ceased to Exist’? Darkness in its heart of heart, is a hollow end, as such darkness has No Heart – ‘Ceased to Exist’.
p/s I point you back to the ‘body issue’ if you are looking for some light at the end of your tunnel… on the individual level… OR RUN!
DJT is gunning for a legacy (not another term)
He wants ‘immortality’ in name/history.
To do that, DJT need the ‘new republic’. Trump’s Republic (as surely he is envy of Putin’s Russia and Xi’s China)
This is, again, I contend, NOT your local show.
Say a prayer for DJT? (Open Question – For or Against)
Even after his huge victory,Soros MSM are once again attacking BOJO and trying to stop…Brexit or delay it.
In fact being the US or the EU these unelected technos globalists don’t accept the results of either an election or a referendum if it does not match their own goals.
techno globalists are a refreshing breeze compared to self declared BoJo Zionist.
The farce of impeachment and the noise it generates obscures the really important things that happen and would happen with or without impeachment, Trump or no Trump. To wit:
“Trump Signs anti-Semitism Executive Order as Hanukkah Comes Early at White House”.
Move will penalize colleges that allow anti-Semitism on campus, with the definition including certain types of criticism of Israel that some see as potentially curtailing free speech:
WASHINGTON — U.S. President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday that allows colleges to be penalized for allowing anti-Semitism on campus. The move has drawn mixed reactions from the Jewish community since being leaked earlier this week.
Trump turned the signing ceremony into part of the White House’s official celebrations for Hanukkah, which included a reception for his supporters in the Jewish community.
Trump signed the executive order flanked by two of his family members: daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, who are both Jewish and senior advisers in the U.S. administration. Trump also invited members of Congress who were present at the reception to the stage, including Jewish Democratic representatives Max Rose (New York) and Elaine Luria (Virginia).
“Across our country, Jewish Americans strengthen, sustain and inspire our nation,” Trump said. “As president, I will always celebrate and honor the Jewish people, and I will always stand with our treasured friend and ally, the State of Israel.”
[silly drivel about Jews, again, removed by me, the Saker]
The ” build up” towards Saker’s endorsement of trump proceeds right along… ;-D
Which part of this is not about picking sides, the enemy of my enemy is NOT my friend. However, as Malcolm X once said, “I am for the truth no matter who tells it”. don’t you get?
What denotes silly drivel about the Jews? Just curious about what type of discussion regarding the Jews is being moderated/removed. Was violence being advocated or something akin to it?
“To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize” as Voltaire said (he didn’t say, but it sounds right).
And that is very true.
However, there is also another possibility: an infantile drivel which does NOT qualify as ” intelligent criticism”. See the moderation rules for yourself. They clearly say:
3) Any comment designed to make me angry will make me angry and will be removed in anger. Any comment deliberately and grossly mis-representing what I write will be immediately removed. I shall not answer any “straw man” arguments. Repeated attempts to misrepresent my views will result in a ban.
11) Self evidently stupid, nonsensical and otherwise idiotic comments will be removed with no right to appeal. Frankly, idiots have been the plague of this blog and I am tired of them. From now on comments posted by people who are self-evidently stupid will be banned and their authors warned that a ban is next.
Problem is, Voltaire was on pay from Venetian Intel and Britain was already Veneto-Britain, ie just as versed in psychological manipulations. So Britain could predict that reaction you cite, thus achieved protection from it.
It appears that this kind of protection was already consciously built-in to Cromwells evangelical puritan project.
And it ought not come as any surprise that Cromwell too was associated with Venetian intel.
The puritans launched anglozionism in order to prepare the colonies for Britains power projection. This was several decades after the British empire had begun if we define the gunpowderplot as it’s start.
And the cooption of the jews for imperial business and finance was highly desired as was demonstrated by the otherwise absurd idea of British Israelism.
I used to think it was Saker who invented the term anglozionism but I discovered that word in old evangelical texts. That shouldnt come as any surprise when the British empire is seen as a symbiotic relation between anglosaxons and jews. For business but also for deception. So the rivals would not see them as a unit and instead spend efforts and indignation on ‘the jewish problem’ . That mysterious and annoying phenomenon in the eyes of so many altmedia visitors is a wanted feature of the british empire and strengthens both sides although the jews get the hatred. The anglosaxons however are adjusting it so that the hatred has appropriate intensity. Not too strong, just enough so the rivals and the jews dont become allies , not too weak so Britains near monopoly of finance, the free lunch, is lost to the rivals. Rivals like Germany under Bismarck. Britain needed nazism to achieve the wanted outcome and had been preparing it for a century when Hitler became dictator. Everything concerning zionism in the 19th century was related to Britains preemption against loosing the jewish asset to the rivals. Not letting them assimilate. Encouraging their tribal character. Recruiting them as revolutionaries and activists so Britains rivals would notice.
Likewise Palmerston, who seemed to be versed in the venetian method had launched the Israel project 70 years before Balfour’s declaration. Palmerston also seems to have instructed the young prince of Wales who later played a decisive role in bringing about WWI even though he died in 1910. He managed to make the young Wilhelm remove Bismarck from office. Bismarck was not foreign to collaborate with the jews and the prussian jews werewere emancipated during his reign. This was cause for alarm from Britain’s perspective and there are signs that Britain acted to undermine the continental jews to counteract what to Britains elites was a mesalliance.
“Poetic revenge: GOP’s impeachment-themed Christmas POEM has Twitter spitting out its eggnog”
Article above is on RT 12/17 USA feed. When both sides start getting this silly, it indicates that no one is taking this seriously anymore. The oomph is gone. I am driven to add silly ditties too.
T’was the eeek! before Christmas
And all through the House
Swamp creatures were seething
Dug in like the louse
Nader was absent or so it is said
Pelosi is babbling
Maxine lost her head
Biden is campaign traveling
His future quickly unraveling
When up in the flip flop
Arose such a chatter
Clinton new face job
Puts paid to the matter
“2020 is now all mine
Tho the nation be tattered
Merry Christmas to all
vote for me in the Fall. “
@ Teranam 13 Thanks for the chuckle! A fun poem and it is Nadler a Zionist Democrat, not Nader who outside of government these days.
The Democrats are not waging war on American Democracy.
And the Republicans are not waging war on American Democracy.
Because American Democracy is about as real as the Tooth Fairy.
What the Donald is really warning is that the Democrats are (inadvertently) exposing the Big Lie called “American Democracy”–and God forbid, the US sheeple might actually wake up and see that their country is one big massive deception …. since it was spawned in 1776.
Essentially, the impeachment thing in the USA is merely different factions of the American Empire fighting over who gets to be the titular head of the US capitalist oligarchy.
Grab your popcorn for a ringside seat!
It might just take some fairy tales coming to life to wake the elite and ask, “is this for real or are my pseudo dreams actually turning into my nightmare?”
Federal surveillance judge orders FBI to answer for ‘misleading’ courts & omitting key evidence in effort to spy on Trump campaign
See, here’s another institution that has lost its credibility, and once lost, it’s nearly impossible to politically reclaim it, its the bad apple that does spoil the whole bunch.
”But because of this colossal injustice, our party is stronger than it has ever been before”
Has a grain of truth in it — imperialism thrives on colossal injustice globally. And the Pindo regime is firmly committed to it.
I may be reaching out the window but I have my own sinister thoughts on why we have been ‘entertained’ by this charade for the last months and if you include ‘Russiagate’ even years. I noticed for a while now (and I am glad the Saker seems to have done the same judging by his remarks in the last Solari Report), that any policy work relating to important political domestic issues in the U.S. have been almost absent in the Capitol since Trump took office. By important I mean major reforms such as health care (for better or worse Obama did approach that), pension reforms, land reforms, energy reforms etc etc.
Little to no energy is spent on actually legislating and debating Tump’s proposed legislation, the opposition to his policies is completely superficial and what is even scarier is that there is bi-partisan agreement on all matters relating to a) increased military spending (the military budget increase was just passed without a whim by the House) and b) Trump’s foreign policy (trade war with China, sanctions against European companies for building NordStream 2, lukewarm opposition to scraping the JCPOA).
All of this underscores the fake division that exists on Capitol Hill, one that is only ‘make believe’. Now, why then do we go through this whole impeachment show which is clearly not going to lead to Trump’s eviction and will rather help him get re-elected in a similar fashion as Boris Johnson was thanks to Brexit?
Vox and Politico have stated in recent articles that there is no precedent for an impeached President being re-elected. (Clinton was on his way out, Johnson was replaced by another democratic candidate). If Trump committed a serious crime/misdemeanour before the election, would the Democrats be able to impeach him a second time after the first failure? Constitutionally possible, politically unviable, especially if this current impeachment becomes a huge embarrassment. What if this is the entire goal of this show? What if they know that Trump will have to act recklessly in either the last year of his first term or his likely second term, without the democratic mechanisms in place to stop him?
We can only wait and see how all of this will play out of course, but something tells me that the time and effort put into this at the expense of moving forward any real politically important legislation holds deeper implications, than removing Trump from office or furthering his chances to be re-elected. Given that I agree with the Saker’s outlook for the coming year and the dark clouds on the horizon building up, I can’t help but think this may be an important piece in the puzzle.

As a wise man, Frank Zappa, once said about America: Government is just the Entertainment division of the Military-Industrial Complex.
The American regime and US politics in general are Kabuki Theater, Professional Wrestling, and (un)Reality TV all rolled into one.
Fake political differences for a fake democracy.
The United States of America is a Orwellian perversion of a “Land of the Free.”
In reality, the USA is a government of the Military-Industrial Complex, by the Military-Industrial Complex, and for the Military-Industrial Complex.
In short, America Empire.
The impeachment proceedings in the senate are likely to drag on for months if Lindsay Graham gets his aay. McConnell wants it over in a day. But the Graham angle if it wins the argument will be quite a clear signal that a huge false flag event is in the works and that the impeachment is on the hoof ready to be supported by both halves of the legislature if Trump refuses immediate action. There might be a planned cascade of such events set to mousetrap Trump duting the election campaign.
A trenchant observation, well said. The powers that put Trump in can also remove him and replace him with one more ready to do their bidding, should he prove reluctant to pull the trigger. The coming year will be very interesting.
Merry Christmas to all.
The Dems were screaming impeachment before the vote counting was finished and they haven’t stopped since. Regardless of who votes how, never forget the several national and state elections, all Republican won, that were overturned or ‘decided’ in some instances weeks after the election when boxes of absentee votes were ‘found’ and counted that gave the win to Dems. That is the future of elections in US, that and the steadfast refusal of Dems to go for universal voter ID verification before one is allowed to vote.
I have no doubts President Trump, regardless of what you think of him (and when you think of him and get that sour look on your face, remember his opposition candidate, Hillary Diane Rodham) will not be impeached and will win the next election. However, that election will be contested for months after the election and The Media will be screaming the whole time that President Trump was not ‘legally’ elected and ‘uncounted’ votes will be found in every broom closet and basement toilet in the land.
There is a simple way to break this foolishness up, and I will use the example of elections here, in little ‘break away with polite young men in green holding everyone at gunpoint’ Sevastopol, aka Russia.
In Russia, it is up to the voter to make sure his/her name is on the voter lists in his/her district before the election, and up to him/her to make sure their name and address is correct on the voting lists. Period. It is up to the voter to provide his/her internal identification document on arrival at the voting precinct. It is up to the voter to make sure the document is up to date and accurate with his/her information including current registered and wet stamped address.
On election day, one goes to the voting precinct of one’s district, joins the line with one’s last name letter, and patiently waits for the actually rapid movement of the line to get to the official. You present your passport, the official checks the list to find one’s name and puts a check mark on the list to indicate one voted. If one is not on that list or one went to the wrong precinct, one is either invited to go to the correct precinct or to make sure at the next election that one is on the list. No argument. Remember, it’s the voter’s responsibility to make sure they are registered correctly in their precinct.
Once verified that the voter is registered and in the correct precinct, the official turns around to a copier and copies the front page with the voter’s photo and informations, puts the copy on the pile on her desk, checks off the voter’s name on the list again and hands the voter the paper ballot. It is up to the voter to somehow wend their way to the curtained ballot booths which surprisingly are within spitball distance of the registration desks.
It’s this type of system the Dems are absolutely against, verified voter registration, which begs the question of why would they not want every voter to present verifiable ID at the voting precinct.
Herein is the problem. In the elections next year, the Dems know they don’t stand a snowball’s chance in Hades of winning the White House and Senate and they stand an overwhelming chance of losing their majority in Congress, and this is what is breeding the impeachment mess plus what has bred, and is breeding, the absolute resolve of the three letter agencies to do their utmost to support and bring to fruition the coup d’etat against President Trump, the duly elected President of the United States of America. They know that if they lose, and they will with even a modicum of correct ballot count, they are finished. President Trump will have a clear mandate to hunt those traitors and fomenters of High Treason down and put them in the docks for trial.
If somehow this ‘impeachment’ and coup manages to succeed, I don’t know what will happen but the thought of utter chaos and quite possibly revolution will be stalking the land. It ain’t goin’ to be pretty.

The favourite systems is to elect candidates that are previously attached to those in power to ensure that the system remains in power and that power remins corrupted. Since the political system is corrupt already the voting may have limited consequences. Only if there were unattached candidates it will make a difference.
But secure voting is nevertheless the only way to move forward and may unwind the corruption over time.
Those in power have created electronic voting with systems that may be manipulated. In the past the some of these systems were easily given the opportunity for the operators to change the results. Other systems had backdoors.
So a secure manual system is the only way to move forward. So secure that it is impossible to run manual voting slips into the loop at the voting station. This can be achieved by secure surveillance that has not been manipulated. This must be followed by secure notification of the votes results, and secure storing of the votes results, both of which are contralled and verified independantly during the course of the election. The manual voting slips should be destroyed after an immiediate count and countercount by two different groups. A referendum can only be simultaneous and manual with no deviation of procedure.
For those of us blessed to have survived on this earth for a number of years, the relentless and coordinated attacks on a sitting president are unprecedented.
They have blocked his presidency and thus the people’s will since day 1. And will continue to so so until he is out of office, be it first or second term. They would rather block for 8 years and get nothing done then let any of the People’s will be carried out.
This should be highly disturbing to any American regardless of party or what they think of Trump.
How can securing the border be painted out to be bad? Every nation has that right. How can negotiating better trade deals with China be bad? US has lost tons of good manufacturing jobs to China without a fight. How can speaking to your “enemies” be bad?
I am personally not a fan at all of Trump but, I do recognize a number of his policies are good for America.
I’m curious why Qanon is never discussed here? Internet LARP but it is a notable movement and opening of pandora’s box, one that will not be closed. One could argue that Q being real, and not malevolent to the people, is what this world needs right now.
please read the moderation guidelines and don’t mention “Q” again.
I’ve got some talking heads music I can turn you on to that about sums up there day.
I am afraid that I have reached my limits with regard to this American political circus. It has become an excruciating bore for anyone who is not a totally absorbed, partisan politics addict. Why do we listen to these overpaid, overrated, mediocrities or even give them the time of day. Why can’t they go and get a proper job. Ah, but there’s the rub, they wouldn’t be capable of doing an honest days work.
So can we please change the record and find people who have interesting, and well thought out things to say, even if we disagree with them. No more parrot-like incantations – ‘it’s the Russians, it’s the Russians’ – been there, seen that, what else can you do messers politicians, ‘journalists’ ‘deep-state apparatchics’? apart from toeing the establishment line.
That the US system is rotten to the core is probably the only thing that isn’t debatable. With the bread and circus show going on over there I do wonder though are we just watching the script unfold as intended, or are there actually two opposing greed factions fighting to embed their snouts in the treasury?
I might add too that the US isn’t the only country where the politicians are seen as on the nose, most so-called Western democracies are the same. And Asia, China may be a beloved Russian ally but can anyone really look at their social scores & surveillance and not see an Orwellian state, even if it is yet to fully flex its repressive muscles. Or Thailand, run by a military dictatorship masquerading as democracy, where elections are rigged and oppositions banned. Most alt media deifies this fascist regime presumably as a US backed one is the alternative. The reality is that they are all bad. Indonesia, yet another parasitic entity.
What great regimes do we have in the Middle East or Africa, that are not quasi repressive dictatorships. Until we change the way we think and act as a species in our quest for temporary and irrelevant materialism, then unfortunately only the worst of us fight their way to the top in politics, and what follows is inevitable.
If they all start prosecuting each other for actual things that actually happened, then we’ll have a new government by about Teusday.
As long as they keep attacking one another over shit they just made up (i.e. stuff they know is ‘safely non-existent’), well then we get more super fun television.
Not a bad letter though, as such.
Joshua, that is exactly how I feel.
Imagine if they decided to prosecuted war crimes as defined by the UN Charter or the Nuremberg Tribunal.
Virtually every living president would be put on trial. Collaborators in Congress and the Media (media figures were prosecuted at Nuremberg and for good reason) would stand trial.
Instead we have to listen to this drivel.
If I am not mistaken, your country is still under the Emergency Law since that fateful day,
when ‘they’ suspend your Constitution,
and have refuse to restore the rule of law back on multiple occasions…
That’s why it may not be the “normal course of procedure” since there is legally no law
and that got me somewhat worried about X …
Why is DJT acting like some hurt little kitten? When he usually just body-bounce all his ‘enemy’ off?
What magik have they done on him?!
One thing will always be true, ‘a broken clock will be right twice a day’. That all that letter proves.
If the system were truly unreformable, it would be an act of insanity to bother even trying or suggesting that it be done. It can be reformed, there is a mechanism in place to address the grade A disaster this country has become. The people who want things to remain as done in the past, will be invited to defend their system one day (of education), or forever hold their peace.
You write “I have not listened to the US media in years”. Reading this made me happy, I am in total agreement with you, I am French and I have not listened to the French media in years (in an effort to preserve my mental health). Also you write “It is the entire system which is both demonic and unreformable”. It is with pleasure that I see that my own thoughts are reflected in your writings. The pleasure is all the more felt by me since very few people DO NOT listen to the media or DO think that the system is demonic and unreformable.
I also got rid of my TV 20+ years ago.
Actually, NOT exposing yourself to the corporate media makes you know much more than what those who still listen to it will ever know.
Also, no radio, no newspapers.
All my info is from the Internet.
I never regretted that!
I do feel compelled to state that any type of false accusation is inherently wrong, and actually despicable. I offer sympathy to anyone who is targeted by false accusations and the threat of force over something that never happened in the first place.
I still hold that the entire ‘impeachment show’ is complete nonsense that is made purely for show, like a stage production. It is sad to see that our alleged government has devolved into its current state, wherein the strategy seems to be ‘keep everyone fighting over stuff that doesn’t exist, so that the government can keep doing whatever the hell it feels like’.
Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump, on the verge of becoming the third US president to be impeached, sent an extraordinary letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday, *excoriating* House Democrats and *casting himself* as a victim of an attempted coup.
A day before the full House is set to vote on articles of impeachment accusing him of abusing his power and obstructing lawmakers’ investigations, Trump wrote in his indignant six-page *missive* that Democrats would come to regret their efforts when voters cast ballots next fall.
Employing *falsehoods* and *exaggerations*, he *bemoaned* the process as woefully broken, *wildly* claiming that “(m)ore due process was afforded to those accused in the Salem Witch Trials.”
He accused Pelosi of portraying a “false display of solemnity” during the impeachment process.
“No intelligent person believes what you are saying,” Trump wrote in the letter sent on Tuesday, adding: “History will judge you harshly as you proceed with this impeachment charade.”
Responding late Tuesday, Pelosi said she’d been working and only saw the “essence” of Trump’s letter. (she has read it front to back really )
“It’s really sick,” she said.
Emotive propaganda and sly knocks in each sentence.
The document was a *brash* public display of *resentments* that Trump has been *fostering* since the start of the impeachment process. His associates say he is deeply aggrieved at the situation and views the prospect of being impeached as a *stain* on his legacy.
Trump and Pelosi have had a history of tense and often personal fights, which have been highlighted by the impeachment inquiry launched this fall. Their most recent White House meeting, in October, was cut short because of the insults they hurled toward each other in the Cabinet Room.
CNN This propaganda uses emotive words to try and project onto Trump their own behaviour and viewpoints.
The impeachment is so obviously ridiculous that some are wondering if there is ulterior motive to it. I just read an article which sums up my own initial thoughts on it. It said:
I originally thought that myself, but I don’t anymore.
Any Republican Senator voting for impeachment – no matter how much they want war – would be committing political suicide to vote for impeachment. Put simply, the Republicans have two voting bases in the electorate. One of their bases is the wealthy, however, they possess only a few votes. The other base consists of the people who – for whatever reason – have been led to believe that the Republicans actually care about issues important to them. For instance, there is the “Joe the Plumber” crowd who believes that they “would have been rich,” if they only didn’t have to pay taxes to cover the cost of food stamps. It is that second group that is the real base of the Republican Party. But that is the problem. That second base of power just loves Trump. Accordingly, I really don’t think that the Democrats “deep plan” is to convince Republican Senators to impeach. Because it just won’t happen. Republicans know that their charade of “caring for the common man” would be unmasked if they voted to impeach Trump. All hell would break loose.
So what is the Democratic plan? I seem to think that they have no plan. They are just so completely out of touch with the real America that they believe in what they are doing as a moral crusade.
Crazy? Yes. But what else could it be?
I believe that you are totally wrong when you say about the Democrats: “They are the only party right now whose arrival to power could signal a possible war between Russia and the US”.
Trump has been completely reeducated in the meantime and will go to extreme to protect perceived American interests and he will not shrink from using all means at his disposal to stop Russia and China from getting ahead. We have taste of it already.
Trump already tried to bully Russia. In April 2017 specifically we came “that close” to a real war. I know, nobody noticed. But I know I am right about this. The Russians called Trump’s bluff and he backed down. Now even US generals admit to Congress that there are no weapons to defend against Russian strikes. So it’s over (barring something crazy).
That bitch Hillary wanted a “no fly zone” in Syria OVER Russian forces. That would have been war. Again, I know that I am right about that.
You can chose to believe me or not.
For the readers interested, I’d like to invite them to see this short video about the slogans of Hilarious Clinton, and the reaction on this in a Senate hearing of Joseph Dunford, then Chief of Staff of the Pentagon. About a no fly zone over Syria, which in practice means a wanted exclusive bombing zone – over Russian forces. Just look in his eyes: he knew what that would mean: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iw5eCXmii1E
Saker, you are absolutely right about that.
For the rest: Imho this letter is pathetic. The Dems strategy is pathetic. There are numerous problems in the USA like crippled health care, tent cities everywhere, homeless people everywhere, and a real unemployment rate of over 30%. In stead of grapping this, it’s all cooking the books, greed and show. From the other side of the Atlantic I can say that this theatre is getting boring.
there is an awareness that boris’ ”win” was rigged.
2 per cent down on turnout from 2017 count yet multiple reports
of massive crowds waiting to vote indicates last minute registrations
being reported. who would register on the last day and then not vote?
Exhibit 1 on why the Dictator in Chief must be impeached. When people elected as Representatives follow the Constitutional procedures to remove a President, and the reply is to call it a ‘coup’ or an attack on Democracy, then that alone is the perfect example of why Trump must be removed from office sooner rather than later.
Trump has consistently shown total disregard for the Constitution of the United States. He has shown disdain towards the fundamental concept that it set up separate branches of government which could exert checks and balances upon the other branches. He has attacked Congress, he has attacked the Courts. Trump’s claim is that he is the Dictator and that none of these other branches of government can dare to do anything other than what he dictates. That is fundamentally against the Constitution, and any President who seeks and claims such massive and unconstitutional extensions of his personal power absolutely must be removed from office.
Yes, I know this is a far-right website, and of course there will be many here who don’t agree. I don’t particularly like the Democrats. I voted for Trump in 16. But, at this point, Trump is a horrible danger to America. His calls that following the Constitution is really some sort of ‘coup’ against his right to be President For Life is just the latest and most extreme reason why Trump must be removed from office. The idea of a President Pence turns my stomach, but America might survive that.
Trump is heading America directly towards a Civil War. His unwillingness to in any way uphold and defend the Constitution is at the core of this. Yes, I know Russia would love this. And I know the insane right wing always loves a Dictator and that the right has opposed the ‘liberal’ concept of democracy in government since it was first put forward. But, any American who loves their country absolutely must support first the impeachment of Donald Trump, and then support the investigation and prosecution of the Trump’s for crimes while committed in office which are currently protected by the thoroughly anti-American notion that a President is somehow above the law.
Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country. Its Donald Trump or Civil War. Take your choice. The interesting thing is that it seems like this is the end of the party that once began with the noble idea of Emancipation, as they seem destined to follow the narcissistic Trump into Civil War against the majority of the population which will mean the end of the Republican Party.
The political civil war is already well at hand, and full blown the last 3 years. And I would hastily advise you reconsider about the majority position, the majority can be dead wrong about so many things and the only reason its sustainable, is b/c they are in the majority.
And I’m placing my money on the democrats going extinct, oh there will always be the underground holdouts, but as their #’s diminish, it will be completely forgotten about in 50 years.
quote: “Yes, I know this is a far-right website, …”
Your ‘knowing’ would be way way off the mark. This is not a far-right website. Rather it is a website for people that can still think, debate, talk, write, understand nuanced debate and anti-empire. Rather than far-right or far-left or any of the fixed ideologies, we consistently operate without being stuck in ideology.
Russia would not enjoy civil war in the US. Nobody will and that old canard can really be left in the trashbin now. If Trump is the best the US can offer, the trouble is very deep seated and you are in a constitutional crisis.
Let me give you a Chinese opinion:
“To many Chinese, it seems that US-style democracy has already become a negative concept, which has brought ceaseless chaos and produced absurd farces.
Democracy itself is a good thing, but the point is how to utilize it. Democracy is never the purpose, but an approach, of governing. A government’s primary job should be meeting the needs of the vast majority of the people and driving the country forward, which requires national consensus.
In other words, it is true that all people should be entitled to freedom of expression. But when it comes to policymaking, democracy alone is not enough – democratic centralism is needed.
Regrettably, in the US, its democracy only offers citizens the opportunity to express their needs, but fails to build a consensus at the national level. As a result, various political parties and figures only look after their own interests, dividing and even fragmenting US society.
Democracy has already been turned into a tool for party politics and a battlefield for different interest groups in the US. This is the tragedy of democracy. The decay of the US political system has ruined democracy.
With the strength the country accumulated for decades, the US might be able to withstand the chaos caused by such democracy. But as US-style democracy imposes an adverse effect on the rest of the world, can other countries and regions afford it? ”
If one opens your eyes and you see that the US is certainly not the only country in the world, the important sentence out of that piece is whether the rest of the world can afford US style ‘democracy’. And the answer is a resounding NO. But in general, we don’t worry much if it is Trump or another fellow in leadership position. We worry about the content of that leadership. So, you need to solve your problems internally and not worry Russia Russia Russia. It is old.
Look, if he calls the Saker Blog “far right” he either
1) never read it or
2) never understood what he read
thank you for your comment, I fully agree. The opinion you quoted from China perfectly hits the nail. There is so much to learn from China if one is willing to let go ideological barriers. That’s why I submitted Martin Jacques’ “When China Rules the World” to the Saker’s bookshelf.
Here is another one, Eric X. Li comparing two political systems:
Regards from Germany,
My only question for you is what planet are you living on? Surely not this one. You don’t remember the screams to impeach President Trump before the vote tally on election night was complete?
Mr. Reed, in case you are reading this I can tell you that at least you gave me a good laugh with the remark of a “far right” site.
In the first place I’d like to invite you to read articles of much appreciated author Ramin Mazaheri on this site. You call that “far right”?
Secondly, what do you mean by “far right”? I’ll give you something to chew on. In Germany, where I live, the AfD party (Alternative für Deutschland) is called “extreme right”. Because they want a brake on unlimited immigration. Yet, when you read their party foundations, it is not very different from the CDU under Helmut Kohl.
Finally, they have sites here to help floating voters in a multiple party system. You get questions about all sorts of issues, and then the site advises a party that might suit you. I can tell you now, that when you answer these questions with the party program of the NSDAP from 1933, you’ll end up somewhere between Die Linke and Die Grünen (Left party and Green party). “National Sozialistische Deutsche Arbeiter Partei”, socialist workers party, does that ring a bell?
So what do you mean with “far right”? “Quite right” could be a better description imho ;-)
Are you kidding us or do you take us all for fools?! We have known about the criminal conspiracy to remove Trump from the Presidency since before his inauguration–and so has he (if he had been paying attention), and so certainly have his advisors. But what has he, or any one of them, done? Nothing–for three years. No investigations and indictments for violations of 18 U.S.C. secs. 241 and 242 inter alia. Nothing. And now this letter which appeals to the judgment of history “[o]ne hundred years from now”, rather than to the findings of Grand Juries in the present. All it displays is farcical impotence.
I honestly do not understand why Trump does not put in place the process to prosecute the likes of Brenner, Comey, and the others responsible, including the so-called “whistle blowers” for what they have done….. this honestly falls in the category of sedition, attempted overthrow of the elected government, and treason.
impeachment of trump means another muslim country (countries?) would be invaded and destroyed.
The letter from mr Trump even made it into the Dutch mainstream news (though only a link to it and mentioning the letter) https://www.geenstijl.nl/5151092/amerikanen-vieren-impeachment-eve-aan-vooravond-van-kansloze-afzettingsprocedure/
Thank you for letting me know!!
You are very welcome The Saker. The headline translates to ”Americans celebrate impeachment eve on the evening before am impachement that has no chance what so ever to succeed”. If you want I be happy translate it in a better way then google can (smile).
“Besides, he clearly did not write this text anyway, it is way too good and he is way too stupid.” Well, he was smart enough to get elected. We are not in a war, as we for sure would have been, IMO, had the other candidate won the election. So far, the economy is moving along. Many articles I read are waiting for the big depression but it has not started as of today, anyway. I’m not sure what you want from the guy – was Obama so smart? Or Bush? Clinton was reportedly smart and he got rid of the Glass Steagall Act. It just seemed to me like a gratuitous statement; what good does it do to say this when you agree with the thrust of the letter. IMO, he is a bombastic NY businessman. Maybe you just don’t like the way he talks.
I’ll never understand why purportedly “Pro-Russian” commentators like “The Saker”, bla bla bla bla
This comment is removed by me, the Saker.
Yes, I agree regarding the bias and your pointing out people like Clinton and Bush and Obama, who have gone far towards ruining the country. It is not wise to underestimate a person so trenchantly. And it suggests one may be overestimating oneself.
Whether this letter was not actually written by Mr. Trump is not as important as the fact that is a very public declaration that the President rejects the assertion of the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives that the impeachment proceedings, and the investigations the preceded them, are illegitimate and based on outright lies. In the unlikely event that the Senate were to actually convict Mr. Trump on any of the charges, one has to wonder if he will accept the verdict and allow himself to be removed from office (I don’t see him resigning like Nixon). More importantly than the reaction of Mr. Trump would be how the Republicans in congress, and the many millions of Americans who believe this has been a partisan attempt to overturn the election of 2016, will act in the face the success of what they believe has been an three year, ongoing coup attempt.
Add into this murky, volatile soup the accelerating crisis’ in Virginia & Kentucky where Democrat led factions of both governments have stated their intention to enact stringent, and blatantly unconstitutional, gun control laws that would, among other things, retroactively make owners of sporting rifles such as the AR-15 (which is not a battle rifle) felons, establish mandatory registries, and even outlaw the freedom of assembly, speech, and self defense for citizens who own firearms. The response of many citizens in these two states, and in other states that have proposed or adopted similar legislation, has been to declare cities and counties as Second Amendment Sanctuaries where local police and judiciaries will not enforce these edicts.
There have been calls from both radical leftists and state officials in Virginia for the governor to withhold state funds from localities that declare themselves Second Amendment Sanctuaries, fire law enforcement offers who refuse comply, and even use the National Guard to enforce any new gun registration or confiscation laws.
If we end up in a situation where a fairly popular sitting president is impeached, convicted, and does NOT submit to removal or resignation while at the same time the state governments in at least two Southern states attempt to enforce any sort of gun registration or confiscation measure…it could lead to real violence. Wars and revolutions have sparked from lesser tinder.
“More importantly than the reaction of Mr. Trump would be how the Republicans in congress, and the many millions of Americans who believe this has been a partisan attempt to overturn the election of 2016, will act in the face the success of what they believe has been an three year, ongoing coup attempt.”
I will tell you how I think they will react. They will call for the US Military to take control of the situation, and “restore” the Constitution or whatever excuse they use to destroy what little is left of the Republic. (Lindsey Graham has hinted military intervention on another issue in the not too distant past .) Then there will be a military dictatorship, completely out in the open, and supported to the hilt by most of the Evangelical Right Wing of this country. Who knows what happens after that, but it will be very ugly as the military idolaters (both Left and Right) slowly start to understand why the Founding Fathers warned about an overgrown military.
I would not take too seriously this sanctuary city business for firearms. Think, no self preserving police department would buy into something like that. Police officers do not want to get shot. To the best of my knowledge most law enforcement officers want greater gun control.
I always wonder why the words “well regulated” in the 2d amendment tend to be overlooked?
Trump stupid? Really?? I would suggest read his autobiography The Art Of The Deal.(No personal attacks. Removed. Mod). Actually I recommend all Americans read it, especially #NeverTrumpers and the liberals. Gives one understanding of the man and why he thinks and does what he does. Trump didn’t get where he is by being stupid.
Say what you will about the man; his biggest accomplishment as president IMHO is his exposing the depth and breadth of the Deep State as reality and not as some paranoid, tinfoil-hat-wearing right-wing conspiracy. This is why he receives no credit for his long list of other accomplishments: The Hive reacts frantically and angrily at signs of a foreign presence.
“If you truly cared about freedom and liberty you would …” – Trump
No mr-trump, if you truly cared about freedom & liberty you would free Assuange, the fact that you have a blind eye to all your BS, like the kidnapping of Huawei princess Wei, and the fact that you never talk about the dark forces behind your ‘curtain’ shows that your a heartless ANZ taskmaster.
If you truly cared about “Freedom & Liberty” you would flush the toilet on Israel, and free the Palestine People.
I’m still waiting for some Republican to make the obvious argument against impeachment… “A prosecutor who prosecutes a case knowing at the outset that he can never get a conviction is guilty of misconduct”
The role of the house in impeachment is that of prosecutor. The house decides if there is sufficient evidence to gain a conviction and then, and only then, should they refer said case to the senate for trial. What the Democrats are doing is gross abuse of power based upon that standard. That this is so seems to me to be beyond any serious question. The Dems would of course claim that such standards don’t apply to impeachment as it is a political act, the rest of America knows better.
I read the articles of impeachment. There is no citation to any criminal statute. Instead, they say that they decided not to accuse trump of any specific crime because they don’t have to and don’t want to invite debates about elements of the crime and judicial precedents. i.e. they don’t want people to point out that the things they are charging trump with don’t actually violate any U.S. criminal statute.
The constitution says congress can only impeach a president for “high crimes and misdemeanors” which I interpret as meaning the president has to actually commit some kind of crime to be impeached.
This is disturbing. It gives me the impression that the representatives are trying to make up their own crime to charge Trump with. Even in Clinton’s case, the articles of impeachment actually charged him with violating a criminal statute.
This underscores what I wrote earlier. The entire circus is being conducted to undermine the legitimacy of the impeachment procedure of a president as envisioned by the constitution. Again we are being shown a clear example of a Hegelian Dialectic play out in front of our eyes. Problem. Reaction. Solution.
Problem: Create a phony, absurd reason to impeach the president that is blatantly obviously baseless, wrong and counter to the original idea of why a president should be impeached.
Reaction: Create a massive backlash at the voting ballot next November where Trump will win with a landslide if they keep the economy afloat until then (which, let’s be frank, they can do as it all comes down to the Fed).
Solution: Change the laws and prohibit Congress from impeaching presidents as soon as Republicans have the majority in both houses.
Ultimate Goal, making it impossible to remove a standing president even if he were going completely rogue. In tonight’s speech in Michigan Trump several times mentioned the ‘founding fathers’ and how they never intended ‘impeachment proceedings’ to be abused in such a way. This is setting the stage for their true agenda, we are heading this way, I am sure. The ulterior motives of this charade are far worse, I fear.
The democratic position is essentially one based upon raw power, not any principle of constitutional law. They have the numbers, therefore they can impeach for any reason they deem fit…or, as it seems in this instance, for no reason at all.
No person outside the U.S. has the slightest idea what this letter is about. Is it rational in any part? This is nonsense.
A ‘watch on what the markets are doing’. Not that I like the markets, or trust them, but they are a fairly sure indicator of the choices of Big Money and Big Business that, in many respects make the spectacle or theater continue.
So, yesterday through today so far, not much reaction which I read as The Big Money does not care or they are hedged for all possible outcomes.
Catherine Austin Fitts has another view. From her twitter:
12h12 hours ago
The last impeachment, it was in Dec. It was WHITE OUT for the busting of financial controls at HUD and DOD – trillions going out the door all of a sudden. Repealing Glass-Steagall made the mortgage securities fraud possible in size. What is this impeachment WHITE OUT for?
12h12 hours ago
If they are emptying out the rest of the assets using FASAB 56, then Putin could, in theory, be right – the dollar/US gov could collapse – well, be “collapsed.”
So, the question remains what the outcome of this impeachment will be worldwide economically . Are there enough ‘desesperados’ in the US administration as a whole that they will crash the economy to further try to hide their excesses of lying, cheating and stealing (refer Pompeo) of the previous years?
so my question for CAF is…
Is DJT a willing participant and a benefactor…
…or is he shoved and daggered?
I don’t know what CAF will say of course, but, another option that I have not seen discussed is that this impeachment could be ‘holding him hostage’ – but, don’t know. This impeachment is of course to his benefit.
This may have something to do with it.
Very nice! That would be what CAF may say,
because DJ (her friend) has been all over that thingy – space force
JFK got the ‘treatment’ when he got close to the ‘space force’ too!
and there was a russian interest in it as well back then….
(Note what Putin said about DJT in this show)
Somehow Mr Global is (still) v.afraid of the ‘space force’ and whatever else that is out there…
p/s anyone who is interested – do visit Dark Journalist X-series
Nevertheless, I personally think, DJT is NOT (as) SAFE…
p/s dead bodies often show up in circus but they are only found after the crowd leaves… (if they want you to know) Let’s stock up on cat food :) before they change the rules… HA :D
” Besides, he clearly did not write this text anyway, it is way too good and he is way too stupid ”
Calling Trump stupid may be a tad unwise, and clearly DT did not compose the six page document, it is written and published worldwide for a purpose.
See how it has the world hopping – rejoice !!!
Mia, nobody is rejoicing and if the world is hopping, it is because it is hopping out of the way of this critical constitutional crisis. It simply makes the US further non-agreement capable.
There is nothing here to rejoice about, and it takes everyone’s focus away from what is real and what needs to be given attention in our world to a kind of narrow minded one-stream thinking.
Putin in his annual Q&A (still ongoing as we speak) with around 1,900 journalists from across the world has just stated that “If the New START ceases to exist, nothing in the world will hold back an arms race. I believe this is bad.”
I would hope that someone in the US would start paying attention outside of this circus. The West is melting down and we all hope that the damage through this can be contained and we all don’t melt down in this process.
Putin also said the Democratic push for impeachment is “part of the ongoing domestic political battle” in Washington.
So, that is how much the rest of the world is hopping … it is a US domestic issue.
(Let me go listen some more to Putin, he is actually a pleasure to listen to – I think I am a fan :-)
Well…..previously had watched the investigation hearings and “witnesses”….watching the hearing….some of it last night….what a whole lot of miserable decrepit delusional misogynist lowlife that need lobotomies to make the world a safer place and that surely deserve a whuppin the Democrats are……pity for the americans that have ended up with that lot. Someone thought the Congressional system could collapse… probably needs to.
It is collapsing, its just being propped up by the same corruption that is causing the collapse. A wave being swallowed up by a bigger wave.
The best analysis I know of election 2016 is by Jordan Greenhall:
Jordan is a very smart coder, self described neurohacker. He describes the operating systems of the red and blue churches and the movement away from fluid intelligence into running the delivered script. I spent months reading and watching all of Jordan’s work. The above video completely describes the impeachment.
Beware of celebrities launching colour cults interviewed by msm like this Greenhall figure.
I Guess the colour Green would give multiple positive associations for some adherents.
Blue in his scheme is what others refer mostly to left… liberal.
Red in his scheme is for most of us traditional and not very red with it’s usual connotation.
Juggling with colours like that looks like psywar to me.
The real enemy is the oligarchy.
The power nonelectable and nondeposable.
It strives to maintain status quo what regards their own power or to expand it.
It hates competition from every other group, including their own middleclass subjects.
Hijacks every political movement and turns into a pliable instrument for deception.
Trump did not write this. The man can not construct a proper sentence. Heck, he can barely use a proper sentence when speaking.
I see much use of the term “Democracy.”
As they say in the world of computers, “Democracy” is not scalable without a lot more effort and creative inventiveness.
This is not Athens in 2500 B.C.
In any case, Winnie the Pig, aka Winston Churchill, a most despicable creature, did observe one thing of value.
He said “The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter.”
You say: ‘ It is the entire system which is both demonic and unreformable.”
That is 100% correct; evil is incapable of reform, or else it would not be evil.
As Trump says of Mr Zelensky, “…I want President Zelensky to do the right thing, do what he ran on.”.
The only other point to be made is: do what you ran on, President Trump!
Dmitry Babich reported on Cross Talk today that it is nowhere in the MSM but the NYT had an obfuscating article that dismissed it as Putin BS.
NPR has the complete text in web and in pdf form:
Fox news has a web page pointing to scribd window:
cnn has a scribd window:
nbc has a page pointing to letter. I wont turn off addblockers so I have not verified that its there:
You have to search for it. Randomly looking at sites gets only an abbreviated version interspersed with comments.
I was born while Grover Cleveland was still President and have seen a lot in politics. The Dems and the media created the need for Trump. Consider how they treated the GOP candidates the previous two campaigns. Being McCain was a wounded POW they instead went after his V.P. Sarah Palin. The media flew up to Wasilla, Alaska in search of some dirt about her, and when they found nothing, attacked her child with Down Syndrome, despite as Governor of Alaska had no debt, but had a solid reserve, plus negotiated annual payments by the oil companies to pay $1,100 per year to every Alaska citizen. Then in 2012, it was Romney. The media is so biased they no longer can be trusted and thats sad.
Do I like the way Trump talks or some of the things he says? No. I don’t, but deem it necessary to counter the Dems and the media. Trump is exactly what we needed at the right time and I thank God a 70 year old multi-billionaire was willing to put his life on hold and tackle the thankless job pro bono because of his love of country. He has shown an energy level I’ve never seen or heard of in government and hope he doesn’t get discouraged by all the flack being thrown at him.
Good comment and I support Trump fully as you do against the false impeachment proceedings.
I didn’t find a link here to share this on Facebook or Twitter which I could do immediately.
I don’t believe he is capable of either writing this letter or reading it.
