The Democrats and news media screamed "collusion" when the Trump Administration declined to impose new Russian sanctions, but you probably didn't hear the actual reasons why Trump said "no".
Once upon a time, there were journalists. But Satan appeared in his red cloak and horns, casting a curse upon almost all of them. Henceforward, they would become his slaves. No, they did not receive their official set of red cloak and horns, but they were rewarded with sizable paychecks. But with the riches came madness, one in which we alligators and neurosturgeons have labelled RDS. No, it's not RSD (really stupid Dimocrats).
A friend recently recommended that I take a look at an article by Molly McKew, "an expert on information warfare" entitled The Gerasimov Doctrine that was published by Politico last fall. The ominous subtitle of the piece is "It's Russia's new chaos theory of political warfare and it's probably being used on you." In the first paragraph McKew writes:
Tracy Beanz, whom I think is the best researcher on the web politically has presented a detailed analysis of the Flynn guilty plea. (26:49). Yes, the video is long but well worth watching--at least once.
Here are the important points I gleaned from the video:
The World Socialist Website is reporting something that is kind of important. I say that sarcastically, yes I do.
"Vladimir Putin has ordered Russian industry to be prepared to divert all its efforts into war production."
The human race is about to confront it's greatest fear, whether it is capable of eradicating itself from the face of the earth.
1] As I said before I would be surprised if Russia has not meddled to some extent in American Elections
2] As to changing the actual results I have always regarded that as a stretch, you better really get your proof together.
3] If you go for impeachment over this issue make sure everything you say is correct, get it wrong and you will lose badly in the next elections.
After viewing its performance at the MAKS 2017 Moscow Air Show the generals took note that the latest Russian fighter jet appears to be incapable of straight forward flight unlike the Lockheed Martin F-35. One general stated, "At 1/3rd the cost of the F-35, I suppose you get what you pay for. The Russians are obviously now so far behind they will never catch up to our advanced technological expertise."
There's an old saying: "the deeper you dig in a sewer, the more shit you come up with". So it has been a really interesting unravelling of the deep hatred of Clinton/Obama for Trump--no secret at all. Resist! Resist what?
Having trouble connecting the dots ?

As we struggle with the dissonance of our war policy in Syria, I think this 2016 article by Seymour Hersh is clarifying. He states that in 2013 the Joint Chiefs shared intelligence with Germany and Russia with the direct purpose of assisting Assad's government to destroy extremist opposition and ISIS. Hersh clarifies the CIA arming of jihadists, the DIA efforts to speak truth to power, the role of Russia, and he quotes Michael Flynn and Tulsi Gabbard.
So you think about what does this mean? First, it means that the missile lobbing contests of North Korea and the US are really a side-show. The US cannot and will not invade or bomb North Korea for many reasons. One of the most potent reasons is the massive loss of life, even if restricted to conventional weapons. Seoul's megacity of 12,000,000 is within easy striking range of standard artillery as well as short range missiles. There is no effective defense of Seoul possible.
In order to understand Vladimir Putin it is necessary to understand Russia. Russia is a unique culture, history and state of the mind. Vladimir Putin is Russia, in heart, soul and mind. Western strategy is to punish him and Russia and send a message that an ascendant, independent Russia is unacceptable to the West, and that he personally will be punished with Western propaganda, until he gives in. The Western narrative is purposeful and fraudulent.
I wasn't going to get into this, but this is another thing that makes me extremely unlikely to trust the establishment story.
For six months now, the top news story in the country has been how one man, Putin, managed to infiltrate the internets, take almost complete control of the US electoral system and put a puppet of a foreign nation into the country's highest position of power. What kind of superpowers does this man have to create such turmoil in all three branches of the federal government, the Executive, the Legislative and even the Judicial without so much as firing a single bullet or dropping one bomb?
