How Russiagate fiasco destroys Kremlin moderates, accelerating danger for a hot war with Russia


Corporate Democrats can't stop pushing for war through the Russiagate fiasco.

The party has been completely taken over by the neocon/neoliberal establishment and has nothing to do with the Left. The pro-Hillary warmongering media, the ones that pushed for war in Iraq and elsewhere, through big lies and false evidence, are the vanguard of this ugly machine that supports the most terrible Trump administration bills, yet, this machine can't stop accusing him for 'colluding' with Russia that 'interfered' in the 2016 US election. Of course, no evidence presented for such an accusation and no one really can explain what that 'interference' means.

But things are probably much worse, because this completely absurd persistence on Russiagate fiasco that feeds an evident anti-Russian hysteria, destroys all the influence of the Kremlin moderates who struggle to keep open channels between Russia and the United States.

Stephen Cohen, professor emeritus of Russian studies, history, and politics at NY University and Princeton University, explained to Aaron Maté and the Real News the terrible consequences:

They're accusing the President of the United States of being a Russian agent, this has never happened in American history. However much you may loathe Trump, this is a whole new realm of defamation. For a number of years, there's been a steady degradation of American political culture and discourse, generally. There was a time when I hoped or thought that it would be the Democratic Party that would push against that degradation.

Now, however, though I'm kind of only nominally, a Democrat, it's the Democratic Party that's degrading our political culture and our discourse. So, this is MSNBC, which purports to be not only the network of the Democratic Party, but the network of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, is now actually because this guy was a semi-anchor was asking the question to an American senator, "Do you think that Representative Nunes, because he wants the memo released, has been compromised by the Kremlin?"

I think all of us need to focus on what's happened in this country when in the very mainstream, at the highest, most influential levels of the political establishment, this kind of discourse is no longer considered an exception. It is the norm. We hear it daily from MSNBC and CNN, from the New York Times and the Washington Post, that people who doubt the narrative of what's loosely called Russiagate are somehow acting on behalf of or under the spell of the Kremlin, that we aren't Americans any longer. And by the way, if people will say, "Well, it's a weak capitulation of McCarthyism," I say no, it's much more than that because McCarthy was obsessed with Communist. That was a much narrower concept than being obsessed with anybody who might be under Russian influence of any kind. The so-called affinity for Russia. Well, I have a profound affinity for Russian culture and for Russian history. I study it all the time. This is something new. And so, when you accuse a Republican or any Congressman of being a Kremlin agent, this has become a commonplace. We are degraded.

The new Cold War is unfolding not far away from Russia, like the last in Berlin, but on Russia's borders in the Baltic and in Ukraine. We are building up our military presence there, so the Russians are counter-building up, though within their territory. That means the chances of hot war are now much greater than they were before. Meanwhile, not only do we not have a discussion of these real dangers in the United States but anyone who wants to incite a discussion, including the President of the United States, is called treasonous. Every time Trump has tried with Putin to reach a cooperative arrangement, for example, on fighting terrorism in Syria, which is a necessary purpose, literally, the New York Times and the others call him treasonous. Whereas, in the old days, the old Cold War, we had a robust discussion. There is none here. We have no alert system that's warning the American people and its representatives how dangerous this is. And as we mentioned before, it's not only Nunes, it's a lot of people who are being called Kremlin agents because they want to digress from the basic narrative.

Meanwhile, people in Moscow who formed their political establishment, who surround Putin and the Kremlin, I mean, the big brains who are formed policy tankers, and who have always tended to be kind of pro-American, and very moderate, have simply come to the conclusion that war is coming. They can't think of a single thing to tell the Kremlin to offset hawkish views in the Kremlin. Every day, there's something new. And these were the people in Moscow who are daytime peacekeeping interlockers. They have been destroyed by Russiagate. Their influence as Russia is zilch. And the McCarthyites in Russia, they have various terms, now called the pro-American lobby in Russia 'fifth columnists'. This is the damage that's been done. There's never been anything like this in my lifetime.


The Democrats couldn't had downgrade their party further. This disgusting spectacle would make FDR totally ashamed of what this party has become. Not only they are voting for every pro-plutocracy GOP bill under Trump administration, but they have become champions in bringing back a much worse and unpredictable Cold War that is dangerously escalating tension with Russia.

And, unfortunately, even the most progressives of the Democrats are adopting the Russiagate bogus, like Bernie Sanders, because they know that if they don't obey to the narratives, the DNC establishment will crush them politically in no time.

Τραγωδία στο Μάτι και δεξιό παρακράτος: νέα στοιχεία για πιθανή επιχείρηση προβοκάτσιας

globinfo freexchange     Όπως είχαμε επισημάνει ήδη από τον Σεπτέμβριο του 19, η εγχώρια μιντιακή χούντα και οι καθεστωτικές μαριονέτες της Μητσοτακικής δεξιάς είχαν επιλέξει τελικά να ρίξουν το μεγαλύτερο βάρος της αντι-ΣΥΡΙΖΑ προπαγάνδας σε δύο βασικούς πυλώνες: στη συμφωνία των Πρεσπών και στην τραγωδία στο Μάτι.    Όσο περνούσε ο καιρός και αφού κατακάθισε η σκόνη της μιντιακής προπαγάνδας, όλα έδειχναν ότι το σενάριο μιας πιθανής προβοκάτσιας στην υπόθεση "Μάτι" ενορχηστρωμένης από το δεξιό παρακράτος (όσο και αν αυτό φάνταζε εξωφρενικό), δεν θα μπορούσε να αποκλειστεί.   Τα πρώτα ισχυρά σημάδια για την πιθανότητα ενός τέτοιου σεναρίου τα έδωσε το ίδιο το καθεστώς Μητσοτάκη με την επιβράβευση των υπεύθυνων αξιωματικών για τη διαχείριση της φωτιάς στο Μάτι, οι οποίοι πήραν προαγωγή! Κάτι φυσικά που απέκρυψαν επιμελώς όλα τα συστημικά κανάλια της μιντιακής χούντας (στην οποία ανήκει ασφαλώς και η Μητσοτακική ΥΕΝΕΔ) που στηρίζει σύσσωμη το καθεστώς. Πρόσφατα, ήρθαν και νέα

Άλλα δύο χρόνια Μητσοτακικής λαίλαπας ...

globinfo freexchange   Δεν μπορούσαμε να φανταστούμε ότι θα πέφταμε πάλι τόσο μέσα (δυστυχώς) στις προβλέψεις. Αμέσως μετά τις εθνικές εκλογές του 2019, είχαμε γράψει ότι ο "σοφός λαός" δεν είναι και τόσο σοφός. Είτε με την ψήφο του, είτε με την αποχή του, έδωσε το ελεύθερο στη χειρότερη δεξιά της μεταπολίτευσης να σαρώσει σαν 'οδοστρωτήρας' τα πάντα στο πέρασμά της. Μετά από τέσσερα χρόνια νεοφιλελεύθερης λαίλαπας, το τοπίο καταστροφής θα έχει κάνει τη χώρα κυριολεκτικά αγνώριστη.  Και είναι πραγματικά απίστευτο ότι, κάθε μέρα που περνάει, το καθεστώς Μητσοτάκη μοιάζει σαν να έχει βαλθεί να μας επιβεβαιώνει όλο και περισσότερο. Μετά το επιτελικό μπάχαλο στη διαχείριση της πανδημίας και το γεγονός ότι τα εκτελεστικά όργανα του αδίστακτου Μητσοτακικού καθεστώτος έσπευσαν να εκμεταλλευτούν την συγκυρία για να περάσουν ότι πιο αντιλαϊκό και αντιεργατικό μέτρο μπορούσαν να περάσουν, ήρθαν οι ασύλληπτες καταστροφές με τις πυρκαγιές σε Βόρεια Εύβοια, Βαρυμπόμπη και αλλού.

WikiLeaks - US imperialists were seeking Russian assistance to manage chaos in Afghanistan!

The WIKILEAKS Public Library of US Diplomacy (PlusD) holds the world's largest searchable collection of United States confidential, or formerly confidential, diplomatic communications. As of April 8, 2013 it holds 2 million records comprising approximately 1 billion words. The collection covers US involvements in, and diplomatic or intelligence reporting on, every country on earth. It is the single most significant body of geopolitical material ever published. The PlusD collection, built and curated by WikiLeaks, is updated from a variety of sources, including leaks, documents released under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and documents released by the US State Department systematic declassification review.   globinfo freexchange   A February, 2010 cable coming from the US embassy in Moscow, reveals that the US was seeking to involve Russia in the efforts to manage the chaos in Afghanistan.   A particular phrase in the summary reveals that the Americans had already tried to

How the Americans created the al-Qaeda myth prior to 9/11 attacks in order to invade Afghanistan and Iraq

globinfo freexchange   In his documentary The Power Of Nightmares , Adam Curtis gives the details of how the Americans essentially invented al-Qaeda and how the neocons re-emerged after the 9/11 attacks to exploit this myth.   The result was the devastating wars in Afghanistan and Iraq:   For beyond his own small group, Bin Laden had no formal organization. Until the Americans invented one for him. In January 2001, a trial began in a Manhattan courtroom of four men accused of the embassy bombings in east Africa. But the Americans had also decided to prosecute Bin Laden in his absence. But to do this under American law, the prosecutors needed evidence of a criminal organization because, as with the Mafia, that would allow them to prosecute the head of the organization, even if he could not be linked directly to the crime. And the evidence for that organization was provided for them by an ex-associate of Bin Laden's called Jamal Al-Fadl.   The picture Al-Fadl drew for the Americans

US imperialists activate their ISIS proxies to alter the nature of war in Afghanistan

globinfo freexchange   It took only a few days for the US declining empire to return to Afghanistan after its disorderly retreat under Biden's order. And what a surprise: another drone strike, another murder of civilians - kids among them, another war crime. That is, the routine outcome of every US military intervention the last decades. It was a matter of time before "uncle Joe" bent to the enormous pressure by the sinister war machine. The combined, stormy attack by the corporate media and the deep state against his decision to withdraw the US forces from Afghanistan, created a suffocating situation. And while the Western propaganda machine announced the definite withdrawal of the US forces from the Afghan soil - after the new US war crime - the pressure and harsh criticism on Biden never ended. On the contrary, it seems that the criticism against his decision to withdraw all US forces is getting more and more intensive. The Western propaganda machine not only had nothi

Chris Hedges & Richard Wolff: Have Bernie, the Squad, & the institutional Left failed us?

Bad Faith   Marxist economist Richard Wolff and Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and theologian Chris Hedges weigh in on whether there is a moral maximum income, by what standard we should judge leftists who become wealthy in the course of their advocacy, and why the left is so easily distracted by superficial internecine battles, like the one over Hasan Piker's house, during this time of great crisis.    They then move on to discuss more substantive divides on the left, and whether the so-called "institutional left's" theory of power is, in fact, demobilizing people at the very moment they should act. It's a banger. 

Μπλέξαμε άσχημα ...

globinfo freexchange   Όλα δείχνουν ότι οι "άριστοι" του Μητσοτακοκαθεστώτος τα έχουν κάνει παντού μαντάρα και έχουν βάλει τον αυτόματο πιλότο.   Πώς αλλιώς να εξηγηθεί ότι οι διασωληνωμένοι και οι νεκροί έχουν εξαφανιστεί από τα δελτία προπαγάνδας της μιντιακής χούντας και εν όψει καλοκαιριού, ο περιοδεύων Μητσοτακοθίασος αποφάσισε να ανοίξει τα πάντα; Ξαφνικά είμαστε μια ωραία ατμόσφαιρα και όλοι είναι έτοιμοι για διακοπάρες σε κάποιο νησί.  Μήπως πάει καλά το πρόγραμμα εμβολιασμού, έχουμε χτίσει το πολυπόθητο τείχος ανοσίας και δεν το πήραμε χαμπάρι; Μήπως οι μεταλλάξεις έφυγαν τρομαγμένες μόλις αντίκρισαν τον Μπιλ Κικίλ και τον Νικ Χάρντ του καθεστωτικού θιάσου; Μήπως έβρεξε ξαφνικά ΜΕΘ, κλίνες και προσωπικό και ανάσαναν τα δημόσια νοσοκομεία; Μήπως δεν γίνεται μπάχαλο με τα τεστ και όλα είναι άψογα οργανωμένα; Τίποτα απ'όλα αυτά. Απλώς, έρχονται οι τουρίστες! Και επειδή ο Μητσοτακοθίασος πρέπει να δείξει κάτι για να μη φανεί η παταγώδης αποτυχία σε όλους τους τομείς

Jeremy Corbyn on Afghanistan & preventing the next war

Democracy Now!   Jeremy Corbyn, one of the leading critics of the Afghan War in Britain, on the Taliban takeover in Afghanistan.    He says critics who warned against invading Afghanistan, and later Iraq, have been vindicated, and calls for an official inquiry into the war.    “ It’s horrible to read back to 2001 and 2003 and say all the worst predictions that any of us ever made have all come to pass, ” Corbyn tells Democracy Now!  

John Pilger on Afghanistan: US military a killing machine & how the Taliban went from ally to enemy

Going Underground Legendary journalist and filmmaker John Pilger on the takeover of the Taliban in Afghanistan. He calls the US military a killing machine and discusses why the Afghanistan War must be viewed through the lens of Western imperialism, the scale of civilian casualties and destruction of Afghanistan by NATO countries, how the US created today’s situation by supporting Afghan jihadist forces against the Soviet Union throughout the Cold War, the social progress and progressive reform lost to history with the fall of the Soviet-backed PDPA government in Afghanistan. Pilger also discusses the anniversary of the Pinochet coup in Chile and the trial of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. 

Επιβεβαίωση: Επιχείρηση προβοκάτσιας του δεξιού παρακράτους η τραγωδία στο Μάτι!

globinfo freexchange  Σε προηγούμενο άρθρο στις αρχές Ιουλίου, είχαμε αναφερθεί στους περίφημους διαλόγους με τα "πακιστανικά τηλέφωνα", που προκάλεσαν σάλο. Είχαμε επισημάνει ότι η αδιανόητη απάντηση του επικεφαλής της υπηρεσίας του αεροδρομίου σχετικά με το Μάτι, σχολιάστηκε έντονα μόνο από μερικούς χρήστες στα σόσιαλ μίντια. Ενώ είναι χαρακτηριστικό ότι ορισμένα συστημικά ΜΜΕ απέκρυψαν επιμελώς αυτό το κομμάτι του διαλόγου. Ο επικεφαλής, λοιπόν, φέρεται να λέει: " Σιγά μην μπλέξουμε, οι άλλοι έκαψαν 100 άτομα και πήραν και βαθμό ... " και αναφέρεται προφανώς στους υπεύθυνους αξιωματικούς για τη διαχείριση της φωτιάς στο Μάτι, οι οποίοι πήραν προαγωγή από την κυβέρνηση της ΝΔ.  Συμπεράναμε ότι η ωμή κυνικότητα των διαλόγων και το ότι επιβεβαιώνουν το γεγονός ότι κάποιοι υπεύθυνοι αντί να ξηλωθούν προάγονται (προφανώς επειδή έκαναν τη βρόμικη δουλειά), έχουν έντονη οσμή δεξιού παρακράτους. Ενώ, αναρωτηθήκαμε αν ο εισαγγελέας θα σταθεί (ως οφείλει) και στο κομμάτι
