Recently while watching the third and final presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump I was fascinated at how Clinton blamed Russia and in particular president Putin for the recent political hacking attacks claiming the 17 US security agencies have sufficient information that imply the Russian government has been directing those attacks on American political organizations. Yet despite this, these same security agencies can’t seem to find the roughly 1,000 emails between Hillary Clinton and Gen. David Petraeus thought to be missing from the 30,000 emails provided by Clinton’s team to the State Department in December 2014.
It reminded me of the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH 17 that crashed in eastern Ukraine after being hit by a Russian Buk missile on July 17, 2016. Almost immediately after the crash, Fareed Zakariah the host of CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS put the blame squarely on Moscow on direct orders from Putin.
About a week later, Clinton told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria in an exclusive interview that Russian President Vladimir Putin bears at least some responsibility for the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Friday.
“I think if there were any doubt it should be gone by now, that Vladimir Putin, certainly indirectly — through his support of the insurgents in eastern Ukraine and the supply of advanced weapons and, frankly, the presence of Russian Special Forces and intelligence agents — bears responsibility for what happened.” that will air Sunday.
What is truly shocking is that these claims were made despite the total lack of any substantive evidence.
And more recently, European Union (EU)President Donald Tusk blamed Russia for attempting to destabilise the EU.
At a summit of leader of the 28 countries held in Brussels last week, Tusk Thursday, told journalists that members of the meeting touched upon “all sorts of Russian hostilities”, including alleged“airspace violations”, “information campaigns,” “cyber-attacks” as well as accusing Moscow of meddling into the “political processes in the EU and beyond.”
“Given these examples, it is clear that Russia’s strategy is to weaken the EU,” Tusk claimed.
However, he then said that “creating tensions with Russia is not our aim,” adding that the EU is “always” up for a dialog with Russia.
When it comes to Brexit, Ukraine, Syria, proposals for free trade with Canada, Russia and proposals for visa free EU travel for Turkish citizens, the EU failed to reach an agreement and it doesn’t appear any agreement will happen any time soon.
Whilst Brussels calls for further and deeper integration between EU states, the perpetual stalemate that is EU politics makes this look like something of a pipe dream. And, as long as morons such as Tusk hold political positions of power, things will never improve and instead, I predict an escalation of tensions between member states that may even lead to the collapse of the euro.
In recent weeks, not much has been said in western media about how the US has started to bomb Mosul to smithereens. But, at the same time they castigate Russia for their bombing of Aleppo.
It is no secret that I have a complete disdain for current politicians as well as their partners in crime, most major bankers. It saddens me to see how many people automatically believe the propaganda they are fed by the media, and believe this hypocrisy.
Unfortunately, we live in times where the people who make the rules do not live in reality. And their sense of morality is from another planet. The ability to cheat, lie and deceive while being totally corrupt are ideal traits for these positions.
My concern is, while the US and its western allies blame Russia for almost every geopolitical crisis, something more sinister is going on. To illustrate my point, I recall how something extremely interesting appeared on page 42 of the Thunder Road Report of December 19, 2011.
Almost five years ago there was mention of how the US/UK were involved in occupations, actual conflict, border skirmishes or special forces operations in a host of countries including Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen and Iran. Evidently, the entire process had been in the planning for years, and in an interview with Amy Goodman, on March 02, 2007, Wesley Clark, the Supreme Allied Commander Europe of NATO 1997- 2000 explained how the Bush administration planned to take out 7 countries in 5 years – Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Somalia, Sudan, Iran.
It seems to me that in the US, not only do their bankers lie and cheat, so do their politicians and military leaders. And, while they collude on how to maintain their global hegemony as well as how to prop up their reserve currency status, countries such as China and India are not buying into this. And, instead, they are stocking up on real money which is gold.
I urge all individuals to own some physical gold and silver
