Connecting the Diaspora to Ukraine’s Monsters Through  a Ukrainian Diaspora Handler

G H ELIASON—Based on fabricated results, Ukrainian Intel operatives are working hard to con the US Congress into supplying them with money. They use this money to attack media that doesn’t support Ukraine’s right to  violence against its people. Increasingly they use it to promote fascist policies destroying the safety net Ukrainians had in health care, child care, and retirement. Ukrainian Intel does this through attacks on media groups. Their goal is to force a conflict between the US and Russia to happen. From 2014 onward, they have repeatedly stated this was their only goal and America owed them that much.

The BBC digs itself a very, very deep hole: Russian TV SLAMS Trump ‘Documentary’

One’s got a feeling that BBC knew about a forthcoming leak well in advance and was preparing itself for its coverage by shooting in all the right places in Moscow like Kremlin etc. If so, the whole set up looks like a provocation by the US and UK security services to undermine the legitimacy of the US President Elect. Russian political analyst Dmitry Drobnitsky remarks that the documentary drives at tormenting a sense of fear of the ‘gang of hooligans’, aka European and US right wing conservative forces.

Summitgate and the Campaign vs. ‘Peace’

STEPHEN COHEN—An anti-“peace” Washington establishment is, of course, what still-unproven Russiagate allegations have wrought, as summed up by a New York magazine writer who advises us that the Trump-Putin summit may well be “less a negotiation between two heads of state than a meeting between a Russian-intelligence asset and his handler.”

China’s Military Interests Along The Silk Road Stretch From Sea To Shining Sea

ANDRE KORYBKO—China must avoid being drawn into “mission creep” all across the world in defending its Silk Road interests, to which end it’s likely to avoid having any significant military presence overseas, let alone in actual conflict zones apart from the Hybrid War experiences that its peacekeepers are presently learning from. Thus, China will probably step up its training, advisory, and assistance missions to its many partners as part of its own multipolar version of the US’ “Lead From Behind” strategy, which could for example see future aircraft carrier deployments off the African coast in order to help its in-country allies respond to anti-Silk Road militants.

Politicians —including Sanders—& Media Scoundrels Jump on Phony Indictments of Russian Nationals

STEPHEN LENDMAN—They blasted Trump for intending to hold summit talks with Putin on Monday. They lied saying “the Russian government undertook a coordinated campaign to help swing the election in his favor.”  A litany of further Big Lies followed about what didn’t happen – no Russian interference, no election meddling. Hillary lost because she’s more widely despised than Trump.

Trumpite Foreign Policy: Determined by Campaign Slogans

SJ JONAS—With Trump and the Trumpites, we have something entirely different. First of all, Trump knows little about foreign policy (just like he knows little about the operations of most sectors of the U.S. government). Second of all, he has no connections with the U.S. foreign policy establishment. Nor does he care to make any such connections. Just look at his picks for the most important foreign policy positions in his cabinet, for the CIA, and for the National Security Council. Third, and perhaps most important of all, Trump’s foreign policy decisions for the most part are not governed by aspects of/problems with foreign policy and its effects on the foreign and domestic interests of the United States.

Human Animal Farm: A Fairy Story

JOHN R HALL—Admittedly, I turn seventy in a few weeks, and have become somewhat bitter about the likelihood that my final hours will likely help grease the wheels of Pfizer and Eli Lilly, and build more hospitals and crematoriums to facilitate the final processing of this battered bag of bones and meat.   I just completed extensive research, and found that there are a humungous shitload of pharmaceutical companies with obscene profits in the gazillions.  Meantime, research into disease prevention and that ugly four-letter word (cure) are piss poor to damn near nonexistent.
