US Democrats Latest Undemocratic Plot To Topple Trump: Politics According To (Groucho) Marx

Authored by Martin Sieff via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

The US political, intelligence and media establishments have made even greater asses of themselves before the entire world by cooking up their latest wild concoction of a plot to topple President Donald Trump and – while they’re at it – knock his most plausible challenger former Vice President Joe Biden out of the race as well.

Washington has become a buffoonish theater of the absurd. It is politics according to Marx: But not Karl Marx. The latest scandal is pure Groucho Marx.

It is straight out of the Marx Brothers 1933 comic movie masterpiece “Duck Soup.”

Freedonia is a chaotic joke of a nation that has just gone bankrupt. This of course fits modern America perfectly. The country’s financial benefactor Mrs. Teasdale (obviously a stand in for the International Monetary Fund which had not been created yet) then insists that her favorite, the wild and ludicrous Rufus T. Firefly, a con man with no dignity whatsoever but a surprising amount of wit and street smarts becomes its president.

However, Firefly – a natural stand in for President Donald Trump – must then survive one sinister scheme to topple him from power after another. All of them ineptly executed.

Russiagate was such a scheme. A big lie of such staggering inherit absurdity lacking any hard evidence whatsoever that a six year old child with Downs’ Syndrome would not have been believed it. But around half the adult population of the United States apparently did.

Now, within weeks, hardly even days after absurd and now half-senile Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller (a perfect foil for the Marx Brothers to be played by any comic actor specializing in befuddlement) bit the dust in his own ludicrous congressional testimony, a new Outrageous Accusation has been thrown at Trump, even more non-existent than the previous one.

Right after being falsely accused of conspiring with Russia for the past two and a half years, Trump is suddenly accused of the opposite – of conspiring with Ukraine instead …

Sane Democrats See Little To Gain From Impeaching Trump, Fear It Will Backfire

In an opinion poll commissioned by Reuters a majority of US Democrat voters say they fear that the latest m,ove to impeach President Trump over the Biden-Ukraine scandal will backfire, giving him a boost into the 2020 US election.  One has to wonder about an epidemic of dementia among leading Democrats, given that their leading hopefuls for the 2020 Presidential Election are all well over seventy and have forgotten that only a few weeks ago after screeching since 2016 that Trump collaborated with Russia to steal the presidency from Hillary Clinton, a major investigation into the affair aimed at gathering evidence to  the impeachment collapsed in ignominy having spent millions of dollars and summoned hundreds of witnesses only to find there was not a single shred of evidence to support allegations of malfeasance by the Trump campaign made by supporters of Hillary Clinton. Right now Democrats looking to impeach Trump have major credibility issues after the Mueller report failed to show that Trump ‘colluded’ with Russia, and a transcript of his call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky failed to show Trump strongarming him into investigating former Vice President Joe Biden and Democrat front runner fort the 2020 nomination and his coke addict son who is known to have had dodgy dealings with Ukrainian oligarchs. Below the picture of a gloating Trump are a few snippets from the Reuters report on the poll.

Among the public, interviews with more than 60 voters across four of the most important counties in the 2020 election showed Republicans largely confident the impeachment process will backfire and Trump will win re-election. Democrats, on the other hand, are worried they may be right.

Marc Devlin, a 48-year-old consultant from Northampton County, Pennsylvania, said he expects the inquiry to “incense” supporters of the president. “This is my fear, that it will actually add some flame to his fire with his base,” he said. “I just fear ‘party over country.’”

Meanwhile:

A Reuters/Ipsos poll taken on Monday and Tuesday showed 37% of respondents favored impeaching the president versus 45% who were opposed. That 37% figure was down from 41% three weeks earlier and down from 44% in May, after the release of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian meddling in the 2016 election. –Reuters

“After this he has a much better chance of winning another election, as scary as that sounds,” said 39-year-old Richard Sibilla of Pinellas County, Florida, who voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. “It’s not even worth following because it’s all going to help him.

Reuters has set up a project to monitor voters in four key states that could determine the outcome of next November’s presidential election; Pinellas County, Florida; Maricopa County, Arizona; Northampton County, Pennsylvania; and Racine County, Wisconsin – areas which will be among the most targeted by presidential candidates next year.

While Congressional Republicans remain broadly sceptical of Trump, who came from outside the political establishment to win the presidency Republican voters, as expected, are firmly in Trump’s camp having embraced hisd populist rhetoric.

I don’t think he did anything wrong,” said 78-year-old barber shop owner Joe D’Ambrosio of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, who applauds Trump’s efforts to crack down on illegal immigration.

“I have not had one Republican crack or say they’re turning or going the other way. They’re laughing it off. I think it’s going to help him,” said Lee Snover, chair of the Northampton County Republican Committee, who said she felt the impeachment inquiry was simply the latest Democrat attempt to take out Trump.

That sentiment was shared at a meeting of College Republicans United at Arizona State University on Wednesday.

“They have this idea that everyone is siding with them, that Trump is an impeachable president, when really it’s only a minority,” Rose Mulet, 19, said of the Democratic leadership in Congress. “It’s not a reflection of the general public.” –Reuters

That kind of hubris is typical of the far left everywhere in the developed world, these people’s minds are so closed and their self – righteousness so insulated by quasi religious zeal, they cannot see how intelligent person could disagree with their opinion. The same trait can easily be identified in the UK among people who have tried to overturn the vote to leave the EU, and in EU nations among the elitists who still push for a Federal European Superstate in the face of a resurgence in nationalism.

Declassified Docs Prove NATO Broke Its Promise To Russia

It is a topic that has been reported honestly by alt_media and dishonestly by the Obama worshipping leftists of mainstream media. When mainstream media, that is print and broadcast news, talks about escalating tensions between NATO, the western alliance, and Russia, Russia has routinely been portrayed, since the turn of the century as the aggressor.

Russia’s standard response is usually that it has been forced to protect its interests because the U.S.A and NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation,) are actively trying to encircle the country within a ring of NATO allies. This would essentially enable the U.S.A. to place American troops and missiles right on its borders. This is exactly what has happened in Poland, Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania and in Romania, despite NATO having agreed not to recruit these former Warsaw Pact nations and Soviet republics in an agreement made at the end of the Cold War that NATO would not expand into eastern Europe.

Western critics are still debating whether such a promise ever existed, while NATO itself is denying the undertaking was given, despite ample evidence that it did. As a result of this attack of institutional amnesia NATO has continued to expand as far into eastern Europe as possible, with Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic all joining in 1999. The alliance has further broadened its reach in the years since, ultimately to Russia’s detriment. Russia finally drew the line when NATO and the European Union tried to recruit Ukraine in 2011. The mostly pro Russian population of Ukraine responded by electing a pro Russian government which was quickly ousted by a ‘colour revolution’ regime change coup engineered by the CIA whih put a pro – western neo-fascist government in power in Kiev. Rusia move to annex The Crimea and has propped up the separatist movement formed by the ethnic Russian majority in the eastern provinces.

In an article for Foreign Affairs in December 2014, Mark Kramer, director of the Harvard Project on Cold War studies, stated he had “examined the declassified negotiating records and concluded that no such promise was ever offered.”

“Mary Elise Sarotte (“A Broken Promise?” September/October 2014) points to my article as an example of the history she intends to correct,” Kramer wrote, “but she provides nothing that would change my judgment about what happened. As I wrote, the question of NATO’s possible expansion eastward arose numerous times during negotiations Gorbachev conducted with U.S. Secretary of State James Baker, West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl, and U.S. President George H. W. Bush. Viewed in context, however, it is clear that they were speaking solely about expanding the alliance into East Germany.” [emphasis added]

Kramer’s position rests on the claim that that while it has always been understood that then-Secretary of State James Baker had assured Mikhail Gorbachev that NATO would expand “not one inch eastward” during a meeting that took place on February 9, 1990, the context was that of German reunification, not wider Europe.

However, as the National Interest recently learned, Kramer’s interpretation appears to be incorrect, as is revealed by the release of some further declassified material.

The recently declassified documents show that many national leaders were considering rejecting Central and Eastern European membership in NATO as of early 1990 and through 1991, George Washington University National Security Archives researchers Svetlana Savranskaya and Tom Blanton wrote in the National Security Archives. “Discussions of NATO in the context of German unification negotiations in 1990 were not at all narrowly limited to the status of East German territory, and that subsequent Soviet and Russian complaints about being misled about NATO expansion were founded in written contemporaneous memcons and telcons at the highest levels.”

According to the National Interest — and Russia continuously argues — Gorbachev only accepted the proposal for German reunification (which Gorbachev could have vetoed) due to these assurances that NATO would not expand into Eastern Europe. This sequence of events is similar to how Russia was duped out of using its veto power on a U.N. Security Council Resolution in Libya in 2011 after having received assurances that the NATO coalition would not pursue regime change.

The documents also show that Gorbachev and other Soviet leaders received assurances against NATO expansion from Baker; President George H.W. Bush; West German Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher; West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl; former CIA Director Robert Gates; French leader Francois Mitterrand (who told Gorbachev he was in favor of “gradually dismantling the military blocs”; Margaret Thatcher; British Foreign Minister Douglas Hurd; and NATO secretary-general Manfred Woerner.

Ukraine’s Breakaway Donetsk Province Seek To Join Russian Federation.

As government propaganda from the USA and its NATO allies has spent most of the past three years demonizing Russia and trying to blame Vladimir Putin for the rise of nationalism in Europe, the election of Donald Trump as US President, Brexit, cyber attacks, the failure to resolve the crises in Libya, Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, soggy bottoms on The Great British Bake Off and unpleasant smells, some more level headed commentators on world affairs have speculated on how long it would be before the leaders of the Donetsk and Lugansk breakaway regions would finalize their spilt with Ukraine by seeking to join the Russian Federation.

The two regions in eastern Ukraine both have ethic Russian majorities and were strong supporters of the democratically elected pro – Russian government overthrown by a CIA engineered coup in 2014

Only weeks after a pro EU government had been installed in Kiev in the wake of the revolution the Russian majority area, The Guardian reported The “People’s Republic of Donetsk” declared itself an independent country on Monday and, within two hours of doing so, had asked to join Russia. .

There was speculation about whether Moscow would carry out a Crimea-style annexation of the region, and several ‘fake news’ stories (reported by The Guardian among other august journals that should have known better,) about Russia launching a military invasion of Ukraine.

The biggest real drama however was that Donetsk together with neighbouring Luhansk held a referendum on independence.

According to results announced by the de facto authorities in Donetsk and Luhansk was that 75% respectively voted for state sovereignty and closer ties with Russia. The referendums – which Kiev has dismissed as illegitimate – were hastily organised and marked by numerous violations.

From that day on it was a question of when, rather than if Donetsk would formally request to be accepted as a member of the Russian Federation. Today, the answer came from Donetsk People’s Republic leader Alexander Zakharchenko.

Speaking at a press conference during a meeting with Russian politicians, Zakharchenko said, “We have only one goal, returning to the homeland”.

The Donetsk leader spoke fondly of Russia and reminded his audience that the people of Donbass are Russian and always have been. Today, only a war and legal technicalities stand in the way of the inevitable. There are many hurdles yet to jump, but Donbass is on its way home.

According to the Press TV channel (translated from French), a Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov, dismissed speculation on the Russian attempts to occupy eastern Ukraine.

“Russia does not seek to integrate the self-proclaimed People’s Republics of Lugansk and Donetsk into its ranks,” he said, adding that the problem was absurd.

“For several years, both President Putin and Russian representatives at different levels have been talking about it, indicating that Moscow is not trying to integrate the self-proclaimed republics of the Donbass into Russia.”

Dmitry Peskov also stressed that the problem of self-proclaimed republics was an internal affair of Ukraine. It seems likely to us that his words might hold true until the moment Kiev tries to reintegrate the breakaway regions.

Having Destroyed Ukraine Economy, USA Accuses Russia Of Trying To Destroy The Ukrainian Economy

In what is probably his most idiotic statement ever, US Vice President Joe Biden has accused the Russian government of trying to collapse Ukraine economically, saying Kiev is “now under siege.”

“Russia is trying to undermine the stability and sovereignty of Ukraine by any means it can, including attempting to create conditions that would cause Ukraine to economically collapse,” Biden said at a forum for American and Ukrainian business leaders at the US Chamber of Commerce on Monday.

“As a matter of fact, that’s its first preference,” he added. “But we can’t to let that strategy succeed.”

Poor Joe, must be back on the booze again, surely he can’t have forgotten the coup in Ukraine that overthrew an unpopular and corrupt but democratically elected government was backed by the US government and engineered by the CIA. White House official Victoria Nuland admitted as much in a famous open mic incident.

The vice president is never content with putting one foot in his mouth however, he likes to get them both in there without removing his head from his arse, and so he went on to claim Moscow is sending troops and weapons to destabilize Ukraine, as if the government of trigger happy neo – Nazi loonies installed in Kiev after the US led coup had not already destabilised it enough.

“Russia is building military outposts on Ukrainian soil, it relentlessly continues to send Russian troops, Russian hired thugs and mercenaries, Russian tanks, and Russian missiles into numerous parts of Ukraine,” he stated. Well we have no way of knowing if that is true or not. But we think of other US claims, that Russian convoys were shipping arms into Ukraine, that Russian troops shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over Ukraine and that Putin is about to invade the Baltic States, none of which Washington has been able to offer a shred of evidence in support of, and compare that with the very visible destruction wreaked on pro – Russian areas of Ukraine by the US backed Kiev government and make up your own mind up who the aggressors are.

The United States government accuses Russia of sending troops into eastern Ukraine in support of the pro-Russian forces, an allegation denied by the Kremlin. Read more at Press TV

Dutch Dismiss Claims MH17 Downed By buk Missile – Laugh, I Nearly Shat

I hope humble pie tastes like well rotted snake dung, I really do. Why you might well ask.

Because I want those unimaginative, authority worshipping idiots who argued with us ‘conspiracy theorists’ (more accurately know as truth seekers) to throw up when they eat it. When we said that while the USA sought to justify an armed intervention in Ukraine by claiming pro – Russian separatists had shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 last year, in fact the evidence pointed towards the neo fascist puppet government in Ukraine being responsible, some people called us rude names, accused us of being lovers of Vlad (the imapler) Putin and of not being very intelligent.

It was of course they who were not being very intelligent. Believing propaganda without question if for the terminally stupid, questioning things is what intelligent people do. And usually it take considerable patience for those who question propaganda to be proved right. We waited thirty years for the cover up of the Westminster Paedophile ring to be exposed.

So this story, only nine months after the event is quick really. Just shows how utterly lacking substance the US Government claims were.

Dutch dismiss reports alleging MH17 downed by Buk missile

The Netherlands has denied reports that the Malaysia Airlines plane was downed by a Buk missile, killing all 298 passengers and crew last July.

The Dutch Safety Board (DSB), which is investigating the cause of the crash, responded to reports released earlier by Netherlands broadcaster RTL alleging that the flight MH17 was downed by a Russian-made anti-aircraft missile system.

“The investigation into the cause of the accident is in full progress and focuses on many more sources than only the shrapnel,” the DSB stated.

“Additional investigation material is welcome, but it is imperative that it can be indisputably shown that there is a relationship between the material and the downed aircraft,” the agency emphasized Thursday in a statement.

RTL claimed on Thursday that a metal fragment from the crash site of the plane allegedly matches a surface-to-air Buk rocket. The piece was recovered by a Dutch journalist from the village of Grabovo several months ago, close to where the plane was brought down last year.

Earlier this month Ukrainian media made a gaffe, misquoting Dutch investigators as having accused Russia of shooting down the Malaysian Airlines flight.

Russia Or Europe:Today Greece Must Decide

Yesterday Zero Hedge ran this story:

“Greece’s Foreign Minister Nikolaos Kotzias is to visit Moscow on Wednesday to hold talks with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov, Russia’s Interfax and TASS news agencies reported on Monday citing a source in the Russian Foreign Ministry.” In other words, at precisely the same time as the FinMin is in Brussels discussing the fate, or lack thereof, of Greece in the Eurozone, the new Greek foreign miniser will be in the Kremlin, getting instant updates from Brussels and perhaps discussing the fate of Greece in the Eurasian Economic Union. Or put in the simplest of terms, tomorrow Greece will decide: Europe, or Russia.

It is, is it not, strange that while western media is reporting that Russia has been brought to its knees by US / EU economic sanctions yet the Greeks, Cyprus and Hungary are turning to Moscow for economic salavtion, or that militarily it is cowering in the face of Obama’s threats to arm the Kiev Governmment, but Merkel and Hollande have pirouetted towards Moscow in the hope of brokering a peace deal before Ukraine is overrun by the irregular forces of the pro-Russian separatist militias.

Whatever you read in the propaganda machine that is mainstream media, it always pays to dog a bit deeper if you want to know what is really going on in the world.
