The anti-Flynn ‘deep state’ coup – spelling it out in the clearest way possible


Deciphering the syntax of disinformation, manufactured wars, and russophobia

pale blue horiz

Okay, my sense is that a large number of commentators are misunderstanding the nature of what is going on.  So, this time, rather than writing an analysis, I will spell it out, ‘talking points’ – style and, hopefully, do a better job about making my point.  So, here we go.

  1.  THIS IS NOT ABOUT FLYNN.  Let me repeat that once more.  THIS IS NOT ABOUT FLYNN!!!  Please don’t come and tell me that Flynn was wrong on Iran, on Islam or on China.  I agree.  But,
  2. ==>>THIS IS NOT ABOUT FLYNN!!!<<==

  3. THIS IS ABOUT POWER.  As in, who is boss?  Who is number one?  Who is the alpha dog?  The President or the ‘deep state’?  That is what this is all about – showing everybody who is in charge.
  4. FLYNN WAS A SYMBOL.  He was the symbol of the entire notion of draining the Washington swamp, which is mostly the 3 letter agencies + Pentagon anyway.  Flynn was the guy who dared defy the thought police and be friendly with the Russians.  Flynn was the man who wanted to bring the CIA and JCS back under White House control.  And Flynn was the guy with contacts with SOCOM and JSOC.  Flynn had to be brought down.
  5. FLYNN WAS ALSO A CORNERSTONE.  For better or for worse, it is absolutely evident that Flynn was the brain behind Trump’s entire foreign policy.  On some stuff Flynn was great (Russia), on some stuff he was okay (Takfiri terrorism), on some stuff he was ridiculous (China) and on some stuff he was terrible (Iran).  But that is not what matters here.  Listen to Kucinich who clearly says that this is not about Trump or Flynn, but about a coup against the Presidency by the US ‘deep state’.  Now that Flynn has been brought down, there is no “Trump foreign policy” left.
  6. FLYNN IS ALSO A DOMINO.  Okay, this is crucial, pay attention now.  Putin has often been criticized for protecting his friends even when these friends are guilty of wrongdoings.  Now let me ask you a simple question: would you rather stick your neck out for Trump or for Putin?  Exactly.  If Trump was a loyal kind of person he could have called Pence and Flynn to the Oval Office, told Flynn to apologize and told Pence to shut up.  But he did nothing of the kind.  By accepting Flynn’s “resignation” Trump showed that he does not protect those who fight for him.  There will definitely be a domino-effect now as everybody who matters has now understood: Trump is weak, the Neocons got him by the balls, and Trump will leave you hanging when the shit hits the fan.
  7. FLYNN’S DOWNFALL IS A MESSAGE.  A message to all those who hate Trump and what Trump represents.  And that message is simple: we are back in control and the party is on!  Now that Trump has been humiliated and broken, now that he lost his only high-IQ and powerful ally in the White House, the Neocons are the deep state are smelling blood and they will double-down and resume their attack with increased intensity.  The next highly symbolic sacrificial victim might be the much-hated Steve Bannon. The bottom line is simple: the hunt is on for anti-deep-state ‘crimethinkers’.
  8. AT THE END OF THE DAY, IT IS ABOUT TRUMP’S CHARACTER.  That was the big unknown, right?  Nobody really new what kind of President Trump would make.  Everybody, including yours truly, enjoyed speculating about his ego, his lack of political experience, the fact that he owed nothing to anybody, that he was a deal maker, a common sense pragmatist.  Well, we still don’t know what kind of President Trump will be, but I am afraid that we now know what kind of President he will NOT be: he will NOT drain the swamp, he will NOT change the subordination of US national interests to the AngloZionist Empire, he will NOT forge a historical partnership with Russia and he will NOT send the Neocons down to the basement from which they crawled out 24 years ago.  Whether Trump lacks brains, spine, or balls is anyone’s guess, but it is now painfully clear that he has much more in common with Yanukovich then with Putin.

As I said, it’s over.  Not because of Flynn’s views on Iran or Islam.  But because Trump has caved in, he has been broken and now all that’s left is a painful 4 year long agony.  That’s assuming that the Neocons don’t impeach him just to bask in their arrogance and sense of supremacy.

Frankly, my heart goes out to all those who sincerely hoped that Trump would be the man to free the US from the Neocons and restore the power of the “basket of deplorables” over the many minorities and special interests.  Some will now indulge in a lot of “I told you so” but they will be wrong.  To hope for the best was the right thing to do.  Those who voted for Trump did the only thing in their power to prevent Hillary from occupying the White House.  That was the right decision, they did the right thing, both morally and pragmatically.

But now we also need to gather our courage and accept the reality of what has taken place.  Minimizing the implications of this deep state coup makes no sense whatsoever, neither morally nor pragmatically.  And the reality is this:

It took the Neocons and the US deep state less than a month to overturn the results of the Presidential election.

Trump now declares that he “expects Russia to return Crimea“.

It’s over folks – welcome (back) to the war between Russia and the Empire.

—The Saker

PS: one more thing.  Trump himself was always, of course, the candidate of one part of the ‘US deep state’.  Trump did not appear ex nihilo, and neither did Flynn.  The struggle taking place is one faction of the deep state fighting against another faction of the deep state.  The US elites have been split for a while now.  But since Trump now has legal authority and those trying to color revolution him do not,  I speak of the deep state vs the Presidency.

THE SAKER  is the nom de guerre of a former Russian-born military and geopolitical analyst. He has described his former career as that of “the proverbial ‘armchair strategist’, with all the flaws which derive from that situation. This weakness is partially mitigated by the fact that I used to be a *professionally trained* armchair strategist: this is the guy who in peace time sits at the top floor of a sombre looking building and who in war time sits very deep inside a bunker.”  At one point he was a military analyst during the Kosovo war, and very pro-war, pro-West until some of his experiences during that war changed him and he left that profession in disgust. He was anti-Soviet but has gradually become pro-Putin. He explains, “And while during the Bosnian war I could get UNPROFOR intelligence delivered to me every morning, now I only have access to public, and mostly unreliable and uninteresting, sources.” “Before the war in Bosnia I had heard the phrase “truth is the first casualty of war” but I had never imagined that this could be quite so literally true. Frankly, this war changed my entire life and resulted in a process of soul-searching which ended up pretty much changing my politics 180 degrees. This is a long and very painful story which I do not want to discuss here, but I just want to say that this difference between what I was reading in the press and in the UNPROFOR reports ended up making a huge difference in my entire life. Again, NOT A SINGLE ASPECT OF THE OFFICIAL NARRATIVE WAS TRUE, not one. You would get much closer to the truth if you basically did a “negative” of the official narrative.”

Like The Greanville Post, with which it is now allied in his war against official disinformation, the Saker’s site, VINEYARD OF THE SAKER, is the hub of an international network of sites devoted to fighting the “billion-dollar deception machinery” supporting the empire’s wars against Russia, China, Iran, Syria, Venezuela and any other independent nation opposing or standing in the way of Washington’s drive for global hegemony.  The Saker is published in more than half a dozen languages. A Saker is a very large falcon, native to Europe and Asia.

  1. As anyone could foresee in the last USA presidential elections, the carnival of opposing voices became a cacophony of accusations, half-truths, lies and an assortment of differing opinions which made your head swirl. The supermarket of ideas that is the US culture has been in full swing with pro- and anti- Trump actions and with marching Clinton and Sanders groupies And as predictable the louder the voices, the less anything changed, because despite the internecine warfare within the elites, the US kept sailing like the Titanic set upon its dangerous course. No-one can tell when the right iceberg will make her flounder but so far she is the mightiest ship on the human ocean. With overheated stories about a convulsing White House, border walls, keeping foreigners out and other expected calamities, the Internet and other media retained their emotional and pecuniary profits flowing. All is but the usual US market of ideas that like an Arab bazaar gives every politically inclined salesperson the chance to call out his/her wares and the more diversion there is, the more satisfaction is obtained. It is the American way and assured to keep the status quo unchallenged and intact, while like in a cauldron’s swirling poisons the supervising witches keep the brew bubbling along: “Double, double toil and trouble, Fire burn, and cauldron bubble”, while the ship of state sails on.

  2. The only way to avoid further chaos (so beloved by the ruling classes and in the US strengthened daily, hourly and every minute by the media), is to radicalize the masses. That is easier said than done and it remains at the basis of every hope for change. No amount of enlightened or tendentious arguing on the Internet will bring this about, nor will the many large demonstrations do much more than be fodder for the media mills. There was hope that the Trump election might have polarized the population enough to bring about change, but in fact encouragement by the media (which rule public opinion)to deliberately increase the chaos (like the defunct education system kept barely alive by the infusion of carefully misapplied funds), has prevented any rational resistance. As it is always a question of adverting one’s ideas that suffers from a lack of consistency with too many brewers infusing the brew, there is no one theory that should be brought into practice. It is the genius of marketing false perceptions that confuses the average person which succeed in keeping the understanding of true reality in limbo with the average US citizen. How to break through that is still in the laps of the gods…
