Decoding 9/11 is the Key to Understanding Modern Geopolitics

Most observers of modern geopolitics face a heavy dose of confusion on a daily basis. The seemingly nonsensical nature of post-9/11 American foreign policy leaves too many questions unanswered, questions like “Why regime change at any cost in the Middle East?” or “Why do they hate Putin so much?” In order to answer them, one must first understand the geopolitical circumstances of the 20th century, the fall of the Soviet Union, and the lead up to 9/11.

As Halford Mackinder noted in his 1904 work The Geographical Pivot of History, the central, contiguous land mass consisting of Europe, Asia, and Africa is incontrovertibly the most populated and resource rich area in the world. Mackinder also recognized that Russia sits right in the middle of this land mass, in what he called the Heartland, meaning that any attempt at world domination and the establishment of a New World Order by the Globalist powers that be could never be successful without removing Russia as an obstacle. But as history has shown, military conquest of Russia is far easier said than done. Swedish and French campaigns chased Russian forces across vast but empty expanses before becoming bogged down and ultimately frozen and destroyed by Russia’s brutal winter. Arguably, the last successful, lasting military invasion of Russia occurred in 1240 when Batu Khan’s Golden Horde annexed Moscow and the Eurasian Steppe into the Mongol Empire.

To the Western oligarchs, the Russian obstacle was a undeniable impediment to their overall strategy. It also meant that the possibility of an alliance between resource rich Russia and industrialized Germany, the classic nightmare scenario of the West, would never go away. What’s more, any attempt to establish a Russian-led world hegemony would spring from the most geopolitically advantageous location on the globe.

With this in mind, a new plan was formulated by the elite- covert regime change. As revealed by Anthony C. Sutton’s seminal work Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution, immensely powerful forces such as the Rockefellers, Morgan Bank (now JPMorgan Chase & Co.), National City Bank (now Citigroup) and other supposedly pro-Capitalist institutions and actors aided and funded Bolshevik revolutionaries like Leon Trotsky in toppling the Russian government and installing a one-party system under the Communists.

By 1917, the Marxist cultural infiltration was complete and Western elites had succeeded in capturing Russia without even firing a shot. The next step in establishing the New World Order was to merge the Soviet Union with the United States. We know this because the Reece Committee uncovered such a plan in their investigations of the Ford, Carnegie, and Rockefeller foundations in 1953.

“Rowan Gaither was, at that time, President of the Ford Foundation. Mr. Gaither had sent for me, when I found it convenient to be in New York. He asked me to call upon him at his office, which I did.”

“Upon arrival, after a few amenities, Mr. Gaither said, ‘Mr. Dodd, we have asked you to come up here today, because we thought that, possibly, off the record, you would tell us why the Congress is interested in the activities of foundations such as ourselves.’

“And, before I could think of how I would reply to that statement, Mr. Gaither then went on, and voluntarily stated, ‘Mr. Dodd, all of us who have a hand in the making of policies here, have had experience either with the OSS during the war, or with European economic administration after the war. We have had experience operating under directives. The directives emanate, and did emanate, from the White House. Now, we still operate under just such directives. Would you like to know what the substance of these directives is?’

“I said, ‘Yes, Mr. Gaither, I would like very much to know.’ Whereupon, he made this statement to me, ‘Mr. Dodd, we are here to operate in response to similar directives, the substance of which is that we shall use our grant-making power so to alter life in the United States, that it can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union.'”

-Norman Dodd, chief investigator for U.S. Congressman B. Carroll Reece’s 1953 Special Committee on Tax Exempt Foundations, as interviewed by Edward G. Griffin in 1982

With the combined might of the US and the Soviet Union, Germany and the rest of world would not stand a chance, and the Globalist one world government would then be installed.

The German factions witnessed all of this, and knew that they could never resist such a alliance, or establish a hegemony of their own, if they were still divided into East and West. While the Globalists in America and Europe spent nearly all of the 20th century pushing Socialism, the policies of Perestroika began to take hold in the Soviet Union during the late 80’s, and it would have appeared that the great merger was under way. In 1989, the Soviet Union began to crumble, the “Sovietologists” and the fake intelligentsia were stunned, and the German Globalists sprang into action with a plan for quick reunification.

During the 90’s, America enjoyed its position as the sole superpower of the world. The pro-West Atlanticist politicians like Yeltsin who pushed for Perestroika would take power, and new policies of privatization developed with “help” from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Harvard Institute for International Development would result in a truly colossal amount of wealth going to a small group of Russian oligarchs. Yeltsin’s decision to sell off state-owned assets and natural resources to foreign entities for pennies on the dollar proved utterly catastrophic for Russia, but was good business for its oligarchs and Western Globalists like George Soros. Yeltsin had been conned into selling out Russia and its people, and by the late 90’s, everybody knew it.

On the other hand, German reunification went smoothly and quickly, and the country returned to its pre-war position as the economic and industrial powerhouse of Europe. The EU was formally established in 1993 via the Maastricht Treaty and the Euro was officially introduced. Monetary policy and an exchange rate mechanism were established as Europe became economically integrated into one union. Due to Germany’s central location and heavily industrialized export economy, it quickly became the strongest economy in Europe, and other countries who had become insolvent due to corruption or instability would eventually rely heavily on German prosperity.

Everything was going according to plan for the Globalists. Russia was being siphoned dry and controlled by the Atlanticists and central bankers, German Globalists were incorporating Europe into the centralization paradigm, and all of the appropriate structures and mechanisms to maintain a one world government were being installed.

And then it all fell apart on September 11, 2001.

In his excellent book on the subject, Hidden Finance, Rogue Networks, and Secret Sorcery: The Fascist International, 9/11, and Penetrated Operations, Dr. Joseph P. Farrell lays out a thoroughly researched and meticulously detailed prima facie case that the destruction of the Twin Towers, Building 7, and the attack on the Pentagon was not just an inside job by the elites here in America, but consisted of two separate operations, one within the other. According to Farrell, the first was an operation to facilitate a “new Pearl Harbor” called for by the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), which consisted of merely damaging the target buildings in order to destroy evidence of a covert slush fund consisting of trillions of dollars of stolen money, and to kick off the final sprint towards global hegemony under the leadership of American Globalists starting with regime change in the Middle East. US military bases in Iraq and Afghanistan would carve out a chunk of the rapidly developing Asian continent and isolate Africa, splitting apart Mackinder’s “World-island.”

The second operation was kept a secret from the Bush administration and US Globalists, and it consisted of the actual leveling of the towers and building 7, the hijacking of the US nuclear arsenal and its command structure (the US had assumed a strategic nuclear posture that morning with nuclear armed bombers and submarines standing at full alert), and the isolation and control of key government officials such as Dick Cheney and leaders of Congress. Dr. Farrell posits that a partial coup had taken place capitalizing on the PNAC operation in order to commit nuclear blackmail against US Globalists in order to force them into (or perhaps, out of) a certain course of action or policy.

So who was responsible for blackmailing Bush and the US elites? Farrell unveils a tangled web connecting the 9/11 hijackers and Osama bin Laden to Deutsche Bank and a shadowy organization known as the Carl Duisberg Society. Duisberg was the CEO of German chemical giant Bayer during World War One, forcefully advocating for the development and use of chemical weapons derived from the toxic waste products of his chemical dye industries. Duisberg would also merge Bayer with BASF to form I.G. Farben, the infamous manufacturer of Zyklon B for the Nazi concentration camps.

This group is just one part of what Dr. Farrell calls the “Fascist International,” a mafia-like, extra-territorial covert organization consisting of Nazi holdovers from World War II, the German industrial magnates who followed them, and various levels of peons, cutouts, and shills from all over the world. One of those peons was, apparently, Mohamed Atta, mastermind of the 9/11 attack. Citing the late Michael C. Ruppert’s Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil, Atta was listed as a Carl Duisberg Society scholarship recipient and tutor from 1995 to 1997, had opened accounts with Deutsche Bank while planning the attacks in Frankfurt, and participated in a joint US and German student exchange program for four years in Hamburg. Atta even spoke fluent German.

If Dr. Farrell’s hypothesis is correct, and this Fascist International did indeed turn against the Western elites, 9/11 would have represented the beginning of a factional war within that Globalist power structure, an event that Farrell calls “the divorce.” All of which begs the question: “What could have caused this factional war?”

On January 1, 2000, Boris Yeltsin resigned his position as President of the Russian Federation and appointed his Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin, as his successor. Putin immediately set about reforming everything from tax codes to criminal law to economic policy in an effort to reverse the damage done in the 90’s. The same Russian oligarchs who were enriched by Yeltsin’s policies now found themselves locked in a power struggle with the new President over the direction of the country and its people. Although the Atlanticists still had a significant presence in Russian politics, it was clear that Putin had his own plans for Russia, and they did not involve playing along with a US-led New World Order.

With the largely successful prosecution of the Second Chechen War and having survived harsh criticism for his handling of the Kursk submarine incident, Putin had established himself as the manifestation of a new, nationalist direction for Russian politics. After the debacle of Yeltsin, the Russians had responded by picking the anti-Yeltsin, and therefore, the anti-Christ to the Globalists in the US. Putin’s ascension and solidification of power meant that the fleeting window of opportunity for one world government had come to a close. More than 80 years of preparation, decades of political maneuvering and clandestine activities, and untold amounts of blood and treasure spent would soon be all for nought. Mackinder’s Heartland was pulling itself out from under the Globalist thumb.

But with Putin reigning over Russia, Europe and Germany were spared from US global hegemony. In fact, one could make the argument that Putin was, geopolitically speaking, the best thing to happen to Germany since the reunification as the EU and its Euro are now facing the possibility of disintegration. The revivification of the Russian energy industry was an opportunity for the EU to receive cheaper fuel from a region of the world which was more stable than the Middle East, as well as a means to bypass the petrodollar cartel. Once again, we are face to face with the classic nightmare scenario for Western elites- a rapprochement and alliance between Russia and Germany. Whether or not such an alliance is probable or even possible is an excellent question, but what is far more obvious is the effect of Russia’s revival in driving a wedge between Globalist factions. A wedge which would, many years later, manifest itself in the form of President Donald Trump and the Deep State Junta.

I speculate that it is the effect of this new balance of power, or perhaps a disagreement over how to respond to it and its source in the Kremlin, which would have been one cause for the schism among the Globalists, and ultimately, the “divorce” of 9/11. I suspect another cause would have been a deep suspicion among US elites towards the Germans regarding any potential role they may have played in precipitating the collapse of the Soviet Union at a time which would have benefited Germany’s geopolitical position. As stated earlier, the German reunification was handled quickly and smoothly, Angela Merkel herself assisted in this effort by serving as a deputy spokesperson under the stewardship of Lothar de Maizière, who had run on a platform calling specifically for rapid reunification.

Although Merkel and Putin may have more than a few shared interests, I don’t believe that Putin is a pawn for German Globalists. I do believe, however, that Putin is more than willing to play a role in helping China in their attempt to usurp world dominance. While environmental catastrophists in the US and EU demand carbon taxes, stifling regulations, and an end to fossil fuels, emerging markets are more than happy to continue buying Siberian gas. Meanwhile, China has the jump on the US in developing renewable energy technologies, having spent hundreds of billions of dollars on the development of solar panels, thorium nuclear reactors, and even high-voltage undersea power cables to export energy to other countries. While the US was busy spending trillions overturning the Middle East to placate the Saudis, the rest of the world was taking care of their own interests.

Because Globalists pay no mind to silly, antiquated things like patriotism or love of country, they don’t have to suffer the consequences of their misguided, megalomaniacal quest for world domination and the foolhardy attitude they embrace. The window on a US-led hegemony has closed, and a new door has been opened for China to take on the wretched mantle of Globalism with its totalitarian, Hitlerian philosophy elevating the state over God, the collective over the individual, and the end justifying the means. But please do not resent the Chinese, pity them. They have made the ultimate Faustian bargain, one which will slowly but most surely destroy the beauty of their ancient culture and enslave their many people.

Trump, the Deep State Junta, and the Mysterious Motives for Regime Change in the Middle East

Globalists, both for and against Trump, are working to steer his foreign policy into the Middle East region and Syria specifically, and they are using the classic tactic of problem-reaction-solution to do so.

With rising geopolitical tensions from North Korean missile tests, direct threats from a desperate EU President Juncker, endless Russian conspiracy theories, and open calls for sedition among Washington swamp rats, the all-out war between President Trump and Globalists foreign and domestic finally came to a head when the administration may have used, you guessed it, a false flag operation to justify a tomahawk missile strike against Assad’s forces.

The pure geopolitical expediencies of such a move are apparent. Yes, it’s a show of force and a demonstration of political brinkmanship responding to aggression from North Korea, the seemingly ambivalent Chinese, and the ravings of the hysterical Juncker. And yes, it also helps to cast doubt on the Russian collusion conspiracy theory that the left peddles, as Russia has been trying to break out of post-World War II containment, into the Middle East, and finally into resource-rich Africa. Syria and Iran have been client states of the Russians since the Soviet era expressly for this purpose.

But maybe more importantly, the Trump administration is reasserting the US’s intent to serve as the primary guarantor of security for the region, a role which was relinquished by the US during the Obama administration’s failure to enforce their own red line policy. That role is now entrusted to the Russians, who began drawing up lucrative energy development and European pipeline agreements with Middle Eastern nations who had rejected the destabilization of Hillary Clinton’s “Arab Spring” operations in places like Libya, Egypt and Syria.

But one question still remains: was striking Syria worth the political cost? and the unwavering support of Trump’s voter base? Is this really a course of action that the President would have himself formulated? And why would the Trump administration choose to respond to growing tensions with action in the Middle East? Why not stage a false flag in the Ukraine? or in the South China Sea to address the Globalists directly? What is this long-running, Globalist fixation with interventionism and regime change in the Middle East? And most importantly, why would the Globalists precipitate Trump’s brinkmanship, and praise him when he prevails over them?

Report: Soros-Linked Group Behind Chemical Attack in Syria

I believe Globalists, both for and against Trump, are working to steer his foreign policy into the Middle East region and Syria specifically, and they are using the classic tactic of problem-reaction-solution to do so. Trump finds himself between a rock and a hard place, Trumps authorizes his military to carry out an unpopular missile strike, and then Trump’s approval rating mysteriously shoots up to 50% and the fake media suddenly start praising him? This is classic Pavlovian stimulus-response conditioning, or pressure from above and pressure from below to use the proper Gnostic terminology. Neocon warhawks are already calling for full-scale invasions, and H.R. McMaster has already made plans to insert 150,000 soldiers into the country.

…the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Wall Street Journal and New York Daily News—offered no opinion space to anyone opposed to Donald Trump’s Thursday night airstrikes. By contrast, the five papers ran a total of 18 op-eds, columns or “news analysis” articles (dressed-up opinion pieces) that either praised the strikes or criticized them for not being harsh enough…

But we still have the question of what do the Globalists want from the Middle East? To answer this question, we must go to Iraq, back to the aftermath of the Iraq War invasion and the beginning of the occupation. At the time, Operation Iraqi Freedom was viewed largely as a success, but there was one glaring failure that even the media could not overlook  – the looting of the National Museum of Iraq located in Baghdad.

Cuneiforms

Those who know of the history of Iraq know that between the Tigris and Euphrates lies the fertile crescent and Mesopotamia, where the world’s first civilizations sprung up from seemingly nothing. While humans across the globe were still hunter-gathering nomads, seemingly fully-developed cultures with knowledge of agriculture, cuneiform writing, basic math and astronomy, two story houses, and a serious emphasis on record keeping and issuing receipts just popped up in places like Sumer, Ur, Babylon, and Akkad.

Considering that most historians had thought cities like Babylon to be a myth until its discovery in 1811 by Claudius Rich, these apparently anachronistic aspects of Mesopotamian cultures have puzzled academics, and no satisfactory answer has been given to try to explain this second “great leap forward” in human history. But the speculation may not be necessary as the Sumerians themselves admit in their creation story, just like the ancient Egyptians and the Zulu tribes of Africa, that they are a legacy civilization spawned from the fall of an older, greater civilization. Of course, this mode of thinking is in direct conflict with the standard Western model of human history, which considers the present period of Globalist feudalism and Orwellian thought control as the height of human progress.

According to the Sumerian texts, the cause of this fall was a sort of family feud among the “Gods,” similar to the quarrels of the Greek pantheon, which turned into a massive war and the destruction and diaspora of that ancient high civilization not unlike Plato’s account of the sinking of Atlantis. The Egyptians and the Zulu have maintained their creation stories via the oral tradition of their own mystery schools, but the Sumerians, with their aptitude toward cuneiform record-keeping, have transcribed that information to protect it from distortion and embellishment.

And it is these cuneiform records, or perhaps what they reveal about early human history and the fall, are what the Globalists are after and have been after for centuries. All of which brings us back to the looting of the National Museum of Iraq. The footage of Iraqi nationals walking away from the smashed museum with whatever they could carry was deemed a travesty, and the US military was heavily criticized for their inability to secure the site. And that became the narrative- that the looting was an unfortunate byproduct of a lack of law and order. But as time passed, more details came to light.

The story of what really happened inside the Iraq Museum when thousands of valuable antiquities were stolen in the immediate aftermath of the 2003 US invasion has been revealed in a new book.

Written by the chief investigator, it says there were three separate thefts, at least one of which was an inside job, another the work of professionals, and a third where fleeing Iraq military had left open a door which let in the looters.

The above-ground storage rooms told a different story. Here was where looters had struck, getting in via a door left open by Iraqi soldiers who, even as they fled, discarded their uniforms in a trail of clothing.

Revealed: the real story behind the great Iraq Museum thefts

One of these thefts resulted in the loss of a collection of 80,000 cuneiform tablets, and unless you think the average Iraqi looking to make a quick buck would skip the fancy vases and ceremonial masks and go straight for the massive cuneiform collection, I suspect that this recorded knowledge was the true goal of these thefts. And I also suspect that these “Iraqi soldiers” who discarded their uniforms may not have been Iraqi soldiers at all.

So who all was involved? It seems that the Globalists in the Bush and Obama administrations were not the only ones interested in this ancient knowledge. The other world power that has consistently demonstrated an interest in Mesopotamia archaeology has been the Germans.

The Germans

In 1902, noted German Assyriologist and linguist Friedrich Delitzsch began sharing through his lectures a shocking discovery he had made during his research of cuneiform tablets. In fact, his work was so provocative, Delitzsch was ordered to present his research before Kaiser Wilhelm and his court. The lecture, titled Babel and Bible, revealed that the proper name of the Jewish god of the Old Testament, Yahweh, had appeared in cuneiform writing during the age of Hammurabi and 300 years before the Israelite’s Exodus from Egypt. Delitzsch also noticed striking similarities between Sumerian creation myths and the Old Testament’s Garden of Eden. He tied the great flood of the Epic of Gilgamesh to the story of Noah’s Ark. According to Delitzsch, the Hebrew Bible, and therefore the Old Testament, was clearly and significantly influenced by Sumerian mythology.

What Delitzsch was discovering was that the Jews had been heavily assimilated to Babylonian culture during their 70 year period of captivity. The practice of monotheism slowly replaced polytheism in Judaism around this time. The introduction of the Hebrew alphabet, along with a new emphasis of referencing the Torah for matters of every day life, appear to be inspired by the Sumerian fixation with record keeping and written language. The cuneiform records were, indeed, telling an interesting story.

It was at this time German foreign policy changed from a sole emphasis on facilitating trade and access to ports, to a policy that included subversion, bribery and propaganda to keep other world powers out of the Middle East. Only four years prior, Kaiser Wilhelm had toured the region, and was advised to back the Pan-Islamism of the slowly unraveling Ottoman Empire. According to the Kaiser’s policy makers, the Ottoman Empire was pushing the Muslim identity and their self-proclaimed status as an Islamic caliphate due to the rebellion of Southern European Christians. The Ottomans wanted to unite the remaining Muslim-majority populace to end the encroachment of Nationalism into their territory.

At first, the Kaiser’s advisors were not interested in saving the Ottomans, they were instead interested in using Pan-Islamism, and later Jihad, to subvert British colonies in India and Egypt as well as French colonies in Morocco and Algeria. But when the German-backed Young Turks came into power in 1908, the stage was set for World War I, and the consequences of the Ottoman alliance turned out to be disastrous for the Germans.

And thus came the Nazis, who would widen the search for ancient knowledge to the Peruvian Andes and Tibet, and also substantially expanded the Kaiser’s policies to include the fomenting of Jihad and terrorism against other Western powers. As soon as Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany in 1933, he met with and formed an alliance with the Sunni Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini, who would later lead the Palestinian revolt against the British and actively encourage the extermination of Jews. The Nazis would also form allegiances with the Ba’ath Party, the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Young Egypt Movement.

But the Grand Mufti would ultimately fail to spark the Pan-Islamic revolution the Nazis wanted when his rebellion ended in 1939. Undeterred, the Germans continued to back other Pan-Islamists and Arab Nationalist strong men like the Shah of Iran, Said Barre in Somalia, and Ba’athists like Saddam Hussein. But the Pan-Islamic Jihad revolution never materialized, and many of these Pan-Arab regimes just so happened to be the same regimes mentioned in Wesley Clark’s infamous “7 nations in 5 years” remark in March of 2007. And if you’ll recall, the “7 nations” regime change plan was a direct response to the attacks of 9/11.

Covert War

And now we have come full circle, back to the Iraq war of 2003, and the baffling continuation of regime change policy today. Although President Trump claims he will not invade Syria or interfere further with the Middle East, I believe the Globalist splinter group backing Trump will continue that policy against their German Globalist rivals. Whether the fake media will cover their insatiable lust for hidden knowledge and lost secrets is extremely doubtful.

You may have noticed Neocon warhawks like H.R. McMaster and Dina Powell taking power in the National Security Council, but President Trump’s choice for Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats, is particularly telling. According to Wikipedia:

From August 15, 2001, to February 28, 2005, Coats was the United States Ambassador to Germany.[19][20] As ambassador during the lead-up to the Iraq war, he pressured the German government not to oppose the war, threatening worsened US relations with Germany.[21] As Ambassador he also played a critical role in establishing robust relations with then opposition leader Angela Merkel and in the construction of a new United States Embassy in the heart of Berlin next to the Brandenburg Gate.[22]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Coats

And note that the Berlin embassy Coats helped build was revealed by Edward Snowden in 2013 to be the same embassy that facilitated British and American spying on Angela Merkel’s personal phone.

So I am forced to speculate that there is indeed a covert war between German and American Globalists in the Middle East, but exactly what they are after remains murky. Could it be an ancient story of the origins of humanity? Or occulted knowledge providing insight into the mysterious structures of the universe? Could it be forbidden technology? Could it be all of these things?

Whatever it is, American Globalists have been using Arab Spring operations and ISIS cutouts to continue their pillaging of ancient sites and antiquities in other regime change nations like Egypt, Libya, and Syria.

And, when the Globalists have what they want, they simply order their ISIS agents to blow up and level whatever ancient site they are assigned to desecrate, thereby depriving anybody else from learning what they had just learned. Because things like culture, history, and art are irrelevant to the Globalists’ insatiable, sociopathic, psychotic desire for power. If President Trump allows these Rockefeller Republican, warhawk Neocons to bog the US down in another big Middle Eastern quagmire, the political consequences in 2020 may be insurmountable, and the era of Globalist tyranny will continue.

Are Justice Democrats The REAL Resistance? Or Are They Heading Right Into A Trap?

The reality is, the well-intentioned people who have started the Justice Democrats have no idea who they are messing with.

As Democrats languish under Republican control and their loss to an orange billionaire, the internal debate over the future of the party rages on. A Schism is forming between the Corporate Globalist wing of the party and the populist, “Berniecrat” wing. The continuance of Globalist leadership under Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer has rankled the populists, and the debate over who will replace the disgraced duo of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Donna Brazile as chair of the Democratic National Committee has split the Democrats further.

Bernie Sander’s choice of Minnesota Representative Keith Ellison was an ideal pick until Hillary Clinton supporter Haim Saban and the Anti-Defamation League opposed his candidacy, labeling Ellison an anti-Semite. It is ironic, and also sad, to see the ADL smear enemies of the Globalists as anti-Semites and Neo-Nazis while knowing the history and composition of the Globalist faction itself. Rep. Ellison’s rival is Obama Administration Labor Secretary Tom Perez, a representative of the Corporatist status quo who has the endorsement of Vice President Joe Biden.

Obviously, a showdown is looming between the two wings of the party, and many are saying the Democrats are “beyond broken” and a “sinking ship.” Some Democratic voters have expressed interest in going to a third party- the Democratic Socialists. Frankly, the only thing holding the party together is a smoldering, obsessive hatred for President Donald J. Trump, and their dopey “resistance,” which has yet to resist anything.

2714

But there is one group, Justice Democrats, who have decided to start a real resistance, moving to takeover the Democratic party from the corrupt, corporate Establishment working for Mr. Global. Perhaps the Trump faction’s steamrolling and domination over the Republican establishment in this last election season was noticed by some on the left.

The Globalists are now looking at a grim situation. As Trump’s populism has ejected most of their influence from the right, Justice Democrats are threatening to do the same on the left, leaving the “elites” on the outside. Therefore, we should be seeing fierce resistance from the corporate wing, the same resistance we saw during the Senate and House leadership votes that shut out populists like Ohio Representative Tim Ryan. But with Rep. Ellison still in the race, and Chuck Schumer blessing off on his contentious run, that cohered, united resistance against populism is no longer there. So exactly what is going on in the Democratic Party?

To answer that question, we need to look at the big picture, the global picture. I have mentioned in previous posts how the Globalists reacted to European populists like Marine Le Pen with fake populists like Francois Fillon. In Fillon, the French political establishment rolled over on their usual sticking points of multiculturalism and Russian sanctions in order to preserve the economic agenda of Globalist outsourcing and job retraining. It’s an economic message that still hasn’t gone over well in Europe, and the French elections starting in April will speak to the efficacy of Mr. Global’s fake populist candidates. If successful, the Democratic establishment should follow suit and make their own fake populists.

583c46abc361889d328b4585

But the Globalists in DC have two major obstacles preventing them from following this course of action: (1) The vast majority have spent most of their adult lives living in the bubble, being so completely removed from the reality of everyday people and dumbed down that they don’t know how to put together an appealing fake-Populist platform and (2) the Democratic establishment has a credibility problem, and their mainstream media propaganda machines are no longer working.

Taking all of these observations into account, I speculate that the Corporate Democrats may actually be cultivating the populist Justice Democrats movement through actions like Chuck Schumer’s endorsement of Rep. Ellison. As we have seen with the Occupy movement and BLM, the Globalists are always interested in infiltrating and co-opting grassroots movements. As soon as the Justice Democrats or any leftist populist movement gains popularity and legitimacy, Mr. Global will seize it, gut it of its substance, skin it, and wear that skin to parade around as a Justice Democrat to fool the voters who no longer trust the corporate, corrupt Democratic establishment.

The reality is, the well-intentioned people who have started the Justice Democrats have no idea who they are messing with. And I don’t say this to discourage them as I admire their motivations, but I say it to warn them. They will have to resist the gradualism, the seeping incrementalism of corruption, they will have to push back against the calls to be “reasonable,” and often times ignore the group consensus and the offer to compromise. These are not the type of things that Progressives do well, but they are things that President Trump did brilliantly. If inducement or infiltration won’t work, you can bet the Globalists will reach into their bag of dirty tricks to ostracize, slander, blackmail or do much, much worse to remove the true populists from the movement. If we know anything about the Globalists, it’s that they will do anything and everything necessary to maintain their own power.

Fake News, the Paradigm Shift, and Luttwak’s Voice of Authority

By taking the mainstream media’s new favorite term to marginalize and discredit and turning it back on CNN, Trump is using his bully pulpit to flip the paradigm.

As President-elect Trump’s inauguration inches closer every day, the geopolitical earthquake of his victory has driven the Washington political establishment into a frenzy. The response has been, among many other things, a smear campaign in the mainstream media, and the war of words came to a head last Wednesday when Trump held his first press conference since winning the election.

After Buzzfeed and CNN reported on a set of documents purported to be an intelligence report outlining a Russian control file on Trump, a report that was unverified and unverifiable, Trump shot back at the media outlets, calling Buzzfeed a “failing pile of garbage” and CNN “fake news.”

On Sunday, it was reported that the Trump administration and incoming Press Secretary Sean Spicer were considering holding future White House press briefings outside of the West Wing in order to facilitate more reporters from a variety of media. This is a direct assault on the corrupt culture of DC and the cozy relationship between the press corp and the White House. By deliberately expanding the membership of the White House press corp, and taking them out of the West Wing, the prestige and luster of being a White House correspondent is severely lessened. Reporters who may have been more amenable and non-confrontational during press briefings for fear of losing their membership to this exclusive club would have no reason to continue pulling their punches. And don’t expect to see any more White House Correspondents Dinners with Seth Meyers in the future.

But Trump’s attack on CNN, christening them fake news and winning applause from the crowd, represents something very subtle but significant. By taking the mainstream media’s new favorite term to marginalize and discredit and turning it back on CNN, Trump is using his bully pulpit to flip the paradigm.

The Globalists know that as they lose power in national governments, they will also lose influence and legitimacy. As Globalist career politicians like President Obama, David Cameron, and Matteo Renzi step down, the influence and weight of their positions may fall to bolder, more nationalistic candidates like Trump.

Edward Luttwak, in his book Coup d’État: A Practical Handbook, describes this specific type of institutional influence as the “voice of authority.” According to Luttwak, a crucial component to every coup is occupying that voice of authority. In your typical dictatorial regime change scenario, that would mean gaining control over the state-run media networks and whatever palace or capitol building the dictator occupies. The coup planners will then have the ability to control the narrative and shape the perception of their rebellion in order to gain legitimacy while degrading their opponents.

A similar situation is happening right now in the US, but in a much more peaceful and nuanced manner. Due to the separation of powers, there is no sole position or organ in our federal republic that has this voice of authority. Instead, it is spread among key parts of the three branches of government. With Trump and the Republicans taking powerful positions at the top of two branches of government- the Presidency with its bully pulpit and the Supreme Court- the ability of the Globalists to control the narrative and frame the ideological debate is diminished substantially. Stuck with their increasingly obsolete mainstream media mouthpieces, the Globalists’ Nazi-style program of Weltanschauungskrieg (worldview warfare) is crumbling before their eyes.

So their response is to imitate Trump. There is now a very clear reversal of attitudes between Trump and Globalist operatives with the Globalists now making outlandish allegations, questioning the integrity of the election and the legitimacy of the next President, riling up and radicalizing their hardliners, and staging large rallies in the form of protests. The new Globalist strategy is to feign populism, something that became apparent to me in a previous post I wrote about French Presidential candidate Francois Fillon.

The depth of this deception was made clear about a week ago when the formerly Eurosceptic Italian 5 Star Party headed by comedian Beppe Grillo were outed as a Globalist front funded by George Soros.

“Soros, working from behind the scenes in New York and London, engineered a coup over this past weekend.

“Grillo was convinced to abandon his alliance with UKIP and offer to join the European Parliament’s extremely pro-EU bloc — the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE).”

“There was one major glitch for Five Star and Grillo.

“ALDE refused to permit Five Star to join its parliamentary bloc.

“However, the damage was done. The anti-EU Five Star, which has wrested control of the mayors’ offices of Rome and Turin, had been exposed as a Soros front.”

Soros Cementing Control Over Europe’s Left

Almost immediately after this revelation, a Hungarian party leader called for all of Soros’ NGOs to be “swept out” of the country. Such is the price of clandestine political operations as Soros and his organizations have already been banned from Russia. Don’t be surprised if other nations start expelling Globalist fronts for interfering in their political systems.

All of this geopolitical and populist upheaval proves the Globalists’ strategies are no longer working. The coining of the term “fake news” to replace “conspiracy theory” is a perfect example of how the Globalists have had to change their tactics to deal with exigencies. By granting only the mainstream media the ability to report the “real news,” the Globalists have come to rely entirely on the reputation of the media to maintain their narratives. After the confrontation with the President-elect and the proposal to remove the press corp from the White House, Trump is putting pressure on the media to abandon the Globalist narrative.

The media would do well to do so. As I have stated previously, the Globalist narrative pertaining to Russia is designed to head off any prospect of a Russian reset and the implementation of detente politics. But in an effort to defame Trump, the Globalists have extended themselves past the point of credibility when most news outlets passed on the “docier.”

The fact that Trump compared the leaking of the alleged report to Nazi tactics is quite ironic. After the defeat of the Nazis, the part of Hitler’s intelligence apparatus responsible for spying on the Soviets was incorporated into the CIA. The organization was called Gehlen Org after its head, Nazi Major General Reinhard Gehlen, and for the beginning of the Cold War, the CIA relied entirely on Gehlen Org for their intelligence on the USSR. This organization, and the CIA by extension, had been heavily infiltrated by East German Communist spies almost from its inception. One notorious double agent, Kim Philby, spoiled Gehlen Org’s plan to keep Communism out of Poland via the clandestine WiN Operation. The truth is Russia has always had a formidable and competent intelligence program to keep up with the West

Keeping this in mind, the Globalist narrative regarding Russia starts to become even more inane. According to these intelligence sources, not only have they caught Russia interfering with a democratic election, but they have also obtained the Russians’ control file on Trump. If true, and that’s a big if, this would be a stunning loss for Russian intelligence. Not only would they have been caught with their hand in a very big cookie jar, one that Putin knows would cause severe blowback, but precious blackmail material saved to be used during political expedient times has been leaked to the public, making it far less useful. The more I read into this cartoonish narrative, the more it sounds like wishful thinking.

Accepting that Russia did hack the DNC, the question now becomes “who leaked it?” Julian Assange himself has hinted that DNC staffer Seth Rich was the perpetrator, not the Russians.

“[Assange] hinted darkly that the slain man had been a source in his organization’s recent publication of 30,000 internal DNC emails. The fallout from that embarrassment had led to the firing of several top Democratic Party officials.”

“‘What are you suggesting?’ a startled interviewer from Dutch television asked him.

“‘I am suggesting,’ Assange said, ‘that our sources, ah, take risks, and they, they become concerned to see things occurring like that.’ His organization later ‘clarified’ on Twitter that ‘this should not be taken to imply that Seth Rich was a source for WikiLeaks or to imply that his murder is connected to our publications.’”

Seth Rich: Inside the Killing of the DNC Staffer

But all of this argument and debate ignores a key point. The media continues to frame the “Trump vs. CIA” debate as something legitimate. The reality is that Trump will be the President, Commander-in-Chief, and head of the Executive Department. That means he will have control over the CIA, and if his prerogative is to remove Globalist stalwarts from their positions and send the “CIA Cowboys” riding off into the sunset, he has every right to do so.

And last but not least, Trump had some very interesting comments on blackmail and pinhole cameras. He warned those present that it is common practice for foreign intelligence services to hide recording devices in hotel rooms, but I wonder if this may have been more of a warning to Trump’s political opponents than to those who travel internationally. Recalling the Project Veritas tapes that caught Democratic party operatives inciting violence at Trump’s rallies and busing voters from poll to poll, I wonder if Trump has even more politically incriminating footage that he could use against his enemies.

We may find out after the 20th.

Trump’s Victory, Obama’s Legacy, and the Look on Putin’s Face

I suspect that at the eleventh hour, President Obama decided to cut a deal to preserve the integrity and faith in the American system of governance and himself.

A true geopolitical earthquake that will reverberate around the world for years to come has shaken the Washington Globalist Establishment to its knees. With the concession of Hillary Clinton coming by phone early this morning, Donald J. Trump is now the President-elect, and will become the 45th President of the United States of America. Despite the slanted coverage, months of skewed polls, the disapproval of popular culture, the DNC’s clandestine operations against his rallies, and the rest of the Establishment working hand-in-glove against him, Trump has prevailed and the Globalists have lost. The Republicans now have the Presidency, the Senate, and the House within their power while the Democrats are fractured and routed.

Clinton’s presumptuousness in prematurely activating her transition team, setting up fireworks, and staging her reception under the set piece of a large glass ceiling designed to shatter upon the announcement of her victory highlight the opacity of the delusion and disconnection from reality that Clinton and her entire party suffer under. Worse yet, the Progressive Party will have difficulties uniting under a lack of leadership. President Obama is a lame duck, Harry Reid is retiring, Debbie Wassermann-Schultz and Donna Brazile discredited themselves working for the DNC, Hillary is probably through running, and Bernie Sanders is being branded a sell out. The only major leaders walking away unscathed are Elizabeth Warren, Chuck Schumer, and Vice President Joe Biden.

Obama’s Legacy

After the Clinton campaign was dealt a crushing blow by the revivification of the FBI’s email probe, President Obama took to the trail to stump for Hillary, imploring voters to preserve his own legacy by keeping Trump out of the White House. But Obamacare is dying of its own weight, and Hillary would have most likely replaced Obama’s signature legislation with her own single-payer system, so exactly what legacy is Obama talking about? I speculate that the President was afraid of being implicated in the improprieties of the Clinton campaign’s practices, and any possible investigations that would have awaited Hillary had she won the White House. Perhaps Wikileaks’ revelation of the President’s use of an email address outside of the state.gov system would have lead to further probing, or perhaps the FBI and/or the NYPD had evidence of DOJ interference in favor of Clinton at the behest of the White House. I suspect that at the eleventh hour, President Obama decided to cut a deal to preserve the integrity and faith in the American system of governance and himself.

I and many others have speculated that the source of the various leaked emails, paid speeches, and strategy memos was, in fact, not Russia. In a previous crackpot theory I echoed rumors that deeply dissatisfied, desperate insiders within the American intelligence community and military command were leaking these documents to divert America off of the path of Globalism and never-ending war. On November 1, those suspicions seemed to have been confirmed by Dr. Steve Pieczenik.

Now, Dr. Pieczenik is not just another tin-foil hat wearing conspiracy theorist, he’s a Harvard and MIT grad who served as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State under Henry Kissinger and James Baker, and served posts in four administrations. His expertise was psychological warfare and strategy as it pertains to foreign policy and the negotiation process. Dr. Pieczenik claimed to be in touch with the “Right-wing coup” comprised of moles and agents within 15 intelligence agencies including the FBI, CIA, military intelligence, and the Director of National Intelligence. By working with Julian Assange at Wikileaks, the coup plotters aimed to undermine Clinton’s chances for President and change the direction of the country in the least disruptive, most non-violent way they could think of.

According to history, the goal of most coups is simply to install a preferred individual in a position of power, but I think it’s clear now that this supposed coup behind President-elect Trump may have had another purpose in mind- to force the Establishment into allowing a genuine, fair election with true results. I believe that somewhere inside the intel communities or the Wikileaks files, there may have been damning evidence of corruption (or something even worse) pertaining to senior administrative officials in President Obama’s administration, and probably Obama himself. I believe that the President struck a deal with the coup plotters to allow a fair election in return for their silence and the preservation of the Obama legacy. During the days heading up to and including the elections, every single executive department including the office of the Presidency was monitoring the internet for any kind of cyber-attack or hack, and none were reported. If the deal was made, Obama held up his side of the bargain, and Trump won fair and square.

Putin

Today, Putin congratulated Trump on his victory, and stated his willingness to renormalize relations between the US and Russia. But gone is the look of sly confidence, the subtle glibness and self-satisfaction that stirred just below the surface of Putin’s countenance. For the first time in a long time, the usually smooth, unflappable former KGB operative looked like he was suffering from an ulcer. His smile had sagged into a pursed frown, his eyebrows raised in concern, deeply furrowing his brow as he looks up at the lights flickering off and on in the room. The look in Putin’s eyes is one of uneasiness and concern, and the bags that have formed under them seem to corroborate this. The result of the 2016 election is not at all pleasing to Putin, despite the speculations and accusations being made in the American media. Having dealt with about 25 years of Globalists candidates and policies, Putin was expecting to deal with four more years of the same. He admitted he believed Hillary, and her Globalist backers, would steal the election, and that would mean business as usual for the new Russia. After nearly half a century in power, the Globalist playbook assembled by Brzezinski, Kissinger, Baker, Kennan, and many others has become worn and predictable.

Now that President-elect Trump is en route to the White House, Putin’s wonderful new strategy of dealing with the Globalist West may need more time on the drawing board. In fact, Putin and Lavrov may have to start from scratch to deal with a nationalist, protectionist candidate who has also been largely tight-lipped on foreign policy. Instead of the status quo, Putin is now faced with an unknown variable who says little if anything of his intentions and doesn’t play by the “old rules.” Putin’s newly-won positions on the world stage as the new deal maker, the stable negotiator and propagator of mutually-beneficial trade may now be undercut by Trump’s anti-establishment views. There are plenty of reasons for him to be concerned.

“Now, everybody is sad when their side loses an election, but the day after we have to remember that we’re actually all on one team. This is an intramural scrimmage. We’re not Democrats first. We’re not Republicans first. We are Americans first. We’re patriots first. ”

Transcript: President Obama’s remarks on Donald Trump’s election

Satellites, Pipelines Targeted in the Covert War Between the West and Russia

As this administration continues to struggle for control over pipelines in Syria and the Ukraine in an effort to deprive the Russians of the European oil market, they are now faced with a similar situation domestically.

While the currency war plays itself out on the world energy markets, the belligerents may now be exchanging blows directly, covertly, and regularly. In a previous article concerning President Obama’s executive order on space weather, I talked about the effects of geomagnetically induced currents on gas and oil pipelines, ostensibly as a result of solar flares and their coronal ejections hitting Earth. Large variations in the magnetic field of the planet can induce a direct current powerful enough to damage electronic monitoring systems and even corrode the walls of the pipe, resulting in a spill that may go undetected for days. I speculated that the executive order was actually a response to a developing covert war between the US and Russia using extremely advanced technology, and using the guise of natural disasters.

As this administration continues to struggle for control over pipelines in Syria and the Ukraine in an effort to deprive the Russians of the European oil market, they are now faced with a similar situation domestically. Protestors opposing the Dakota Access Pipeline have cited environmental contamination of drinking water as their primary concern, and have been met with attack dogs and heavily armed police officers in mine-resistant armored vehicles and humvees. Although an earlier injunction put a pause on the project, geopolitical circumstances dictate its completion.

The Colonial Pipeline running from Texas to New York experienced a leak on September 9, spilling 252,000 gallons of gasoline before the issue was detected two days later. On Halloween, an explosion several miles away from the site of the leak now threatens the supply of fuel to the East coast.

Oil Plummets, Pipeline Explosion To Drive Gas Prices Higher

Countries like Russia and Venezuela who have relied on oil exports have suffered from the low prices of the global oil glut, and OPEC has agreed to cut production slightly as even Saudi Arabia has begun to scratch the bottom of the financial barrel to diversify their economy. As I have said, any increase in oil prices is a win for Putin and the Russian oil-ruble, and I suspect that the Colonial pipeline incidents are not accidents.

Moving on to space, we have some more odd news.

Another U.S. Air Force weather satellite just broke up in orbit

Now, it’s easy to jump to conclusions in the present political atmosphere, and satellites are particularly prone to damage from space debris. The fact that three of these 20 year old weather monitoring satellites had finally fallen apart shouldn’t really come as a shock to anybody, but the devil is in the details.

“Air Force officials confirmed the breakup of the long-retired Defense Meteorological Satellite Program Flight 12 satellite (DMSP F-12) after the Joint Space Operations Center at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, detected an additional object orbiting alongside the 22-year-old satellite.”

So why would somebody go through all of the trouble of developing an elaborate anti-satellite system just to take out obsolete, retired satellites? And why attack a satellite when oil prices are a more urgent concern? Again, we must turn to Russia and China, and the BRICS system of international finance that they have been attempting to establish. In order to compete with the petrodollar, the IMF, the World Bank, and the current Western hegemony, the BRICS nations must develop their own versions of such institutions. Part of that financial framework necessitates the duplication of a global electronic payment system. Right now, there is only one international payment system, and it is run by Western firms like Visa and Mastercard. The satellites supporting this network were all launched by the US, and the whole system ultimately falls under the control of the Pentagon.

Although I don’t think the Russians or the Chinese have any plans to destroy American satellites outright, I do think this last incident was yet another warning in the political breakdown between East and West. Add to this the Russian rhetoric of “tectonic consequences” over US interference in Syria, and the mild earthquake in Crimea the day after Putin’s forces invaded, and what we seem to have is a shadow war in addition to the currency war being carried out in the oil prices. If both sides must continue silently firing these shots across each others bow, I can only wonder what would happen if one of those shots were to veer off course, and land directly in the opponent’s magazine.

Obama’s Executive Order on “Space Weather” and the Escalation With Russia

Although many in the public see the nuclear ICBM as the ultimate weapon in any modern military arsenal, that is an outmoded attitude that has prevailed since the 1950’s.

On October 13, 2016, President Obama signed an executive order directing the Executive branch to prepare the US for the possibility of “solar flares, solar energetic particles, and geomagnetic disturbances.” A slew of agencies and departments are being tasked with carrying out this preparatory measure.

Executive Order — Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events

“(i) The Secretaries of Defense, the Interior, Commerce, Transportation, Energy, and Homeland Security, along with the Administrator of NASA and the Director of [the National Science Foundation], shall work together, consistent with their ongoing activities, to develop models, observation systems, technologies, and approaches that inform and enhance national preparedness for the effects of space weather events, including how space weather events may affect critical infrastructure and change the threat landscape with respect to other hazards.”

Although scientists have not been particularly impressed with recent solar activity following the last solar peak of the 1990’s, large solar flares have hit Earth before. In 1859, a powerful coronal mass ejection created massive aurora effects around the world. Gold miners living in the Rocky Mountains woke up and began cooking breakfast, thinking it was morning. Telegraph equipment began shooting sparks while their operators were electrocuted. The amount of time that passed between the observation of the 1859 Carrington Flare and the ejection’s impact with the magnetosphere was 17.6 hours.

With less than a day’s notice to brace a country’s infrastructure and technology from a burst of electromagnetic energy, President Obama has taken on quite a task for the Executive branch. Although I do wonder why the President felt compelled to forego the support of Congress, who would have probably been amenable to some extent, and to relegate FEMA to a supporting role. For you see, there are many more, unexplained dangers other than simple power and internet outages that space weather and geomagnetic disturbances pose towards the national infrastructure.

The satellites that coordinate payment systems and military and private GPS services will be the first casualties. More disturbingly, geomagnetic storms can induce currents in oil pipeline systems, causing their steel to corrode and fail. Electrical damage to control and monitoring systems can allow a breach in the pipeline and oil spills to go unnoticed. I believe that it is this concern over environmental contamination and a loss in oil production, that President Obama is particularly worried about, and I believe that the President’s concerns are not arbitrary in nature. It’s my opinion that the US and Russia have already begun to exchange very subtle but decisive blows in the developing currency war.

Although many in the public see the nuclear ICBM as the ultimate weapon in any modern military arsenal, that is an outmoded attitude that has prevailed since the 1950’s. The eventuality of technological parity, accelerated by Soviet moles, made the concept of Mutual Assured Destruction, and the nuclear standoff, all but predictable. Therefore, any oligarch with an eye towards world domination would have understood the need to move beyond tip-toeing around nuclear warheads to complete their geopolitical objectives. But since those nukes aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, and are instead multiplying, any new offensive strategy would have to be implicitly covert.

A look at the recent rhetoric and saber rattling between Russia and the US may be revealing in this aspect. After the breakdown of the ill-fated truce in Syria, and after Assad’s army restarted the Aleppo campaign, many small earthquakes of an unusual nature were detected along the San Andreas fault line in California. Days later, Russia issued a warning to the US.

Russia says U.S. ‘aggression’ in Syria would mean ‘tectonic shifts’

Scientists in California just discovered a new type of earthquake

What better cover than mother nature? Throw some ambiguous climate change speculation on top of that and you have some pretty solid plausible deniability. Looking at some other very timely earthquakes, it would appear that Russia is not the only one capable of such chicanery. On March 1, 2014, thousands of Russian soldiers poured over the Russian-Ukrainian border as Ukrainian protestors took the streets to reject the legitimacy of both the Soros-backed Euromaidan faction and the pro-Russia administration under democratically-elected Viktor Yanukovych. The very next day, a magnitude 4.1 earthquake hit Crimea.

Ukraine Says Thousands of Russian Troops Have Crossed Border

Moderate earthquake – Crimea Region, Ukraine on March 2, 2014

And now,

Scientists Claim Crimea Is Literally Moving Closer to Russia

“Experts from Russia’s Academy of Science (RAN) claim that Crimea as a land mass has physically been moving towards Russia since 2014, when Moscow held an internationally unrecognized vote to take control of the peninsula.”

The stated referendum occurred on March 16, 2014, two weeks after the Crimean earthquake.

If there is a shadow war going on between the US and Russia, then President Obama would recognize an electromagnetic attack on oil pipelines as a major weakness for the US. If you’ve kept up with Russia, you know that Putin and his oil-rubin are dependent on oil sales to keep the Russian economy moving, and the recent oil glut has done serious damage to Russian growth. Any attempt to cut oil production and increase oil prices is a win for Russia, and Obama is already facing fierce resistance to the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline for exactly that reason – the potential for environmental contamination.
