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.

The Myth of Russian Hacking Omnipotence is a Massive Effort of Obstructionism

Similar to the British establishment’s response to the Brexit, which is now being blamed on Putin, the Globalists in DC decided to obstruct the election in every way possible.

In a last ditch effort to influence world affairs and abate a tide of change not only washing over the US, but the entire Western World including Britain, France, and Italy, Globalist politicians in every nation are blaming Russian hackers for their ills. It’s an attempt not only to focus attention away from their own appalling failures, but to also further entrench the Globalist geopolitical strategy of unipolarism and China first before the Trump administration takes office.

The plight of Mr. Global has become so desperate, free speech is becoming blatantly censored for fear of Russian agents spreading “fake news” (a.k.a. conspiracy theories). Now, social media networks are actively censoring alternative and independent viewpoints, placing them on the same threat level as Jihadi websites.

“The article by reporter Craig Timberg — headlined ‘Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say’ — cites a report by an anonymous website calling itself PropOrNot, which claims that millions of Americans have been deceived this year in a massive Russian ‘misinformation campaign.’

“In other words, the individuals behind this newly created group are publicly branding journalists and news outlets as tools of Russian propaganda — even calling on the FBI to investigate them for espionage — while cowardly hiding their own identities. The group promoted by the Post thus embodies the toxic essence of Joseph McCarthy, but without the courage to attach individual names to the blacklist. Echoing the Wisconsin senator, the group refers to its lengthy collection of sites spouting Russian propaganda as ‘The List.'”

Washington Post Disgracefully Promotes a McCarthyite Blacklist From a New, Hidden, and Very Shady Group

But the older, soft power method of conflating ideology with race is still being used. A little over a week ago, Dutch eurosceptic and Populist politician Geert Wilders was convicted of hate speech for criticizing the religion of Islam. Such blatant censorship is surely a sign of desperation.

Similar to the British establishment’s response to the Brexit, which is now being blamed on Putin, the Globalists in DC decided to obstruct the election in every way possible. From using a third party to demand recounts to subverting electors, the political establishments are simply filibustering, with the British taking the issue all the way to their supreme court and ignoring the will of the people and their own referendum.

But the larger ramification, and the overarching goal of such an effort, is to have a geopolitical effect. It is an attempt to sabotage any rapprochement with Russia, or an abandonment of the China First policy. Trump, with the Taiwan call, has signaled an end to this type of relation with the PRC. By raising tensions at the mere possibility of any deviation in American foreign policy, the political establishment are nothing more than obstructionists acting under the guise of the concerned. And what they are obstructing is a return to the multipolar detente, balance of power politics of Henry Kissinger under Nixon.

This is the type of foreign policy, balance of power, that won’t hesitate to put an end to amicable relations with the Chinese. As Globalist lawmakers across the West are set on outsourcing their manufacturing bases in their “pivot to Asia,” their disenfranchised electorates have voted to put an end to it. While the world invests in the development of the Asian continent, China takes the lead on the research and development of green energy, possibly shutting out the West from dominating that new market as America does the world energy markets. If anything, the West has been locked into a detente policy put on by China, being played against the Russians to benefit the PRC.

But the pundits and talking heads, themselves obsessed with the type of personality-driven politics that propelled Trump into the spotlight, very rarely elevate the scope of their reporting to include the bigger picture view of geopolitics. As Hillary Clinton continues to blame everyone from the FBI to Putin to the electoral college in her public psychodrama, the EU disintegrates further, and Globalism under corrupt, corporate cronies continues to be rejected.

Is Putin Purging His Kremlin of Keynesians?

If Ulyukayev’s arrest is the beginning of a purge of Western Liberal economists from the Kremlin, it may have also been a litmus test to assess the political and social ramifications of further shake ups in senior leadership.

In a previous post about Russia’s geopolitical goals, I mentioned the struggle for influence among the Western Liberal economists running the Russian Central Bank and the Stolypin Club, a collection of economic advisors shaping Putin’s foreign policy goals. Judging from Russia’s recent geopolitical moves, it would seem that the Stolypin Club were winning that war of influence, and I have been watching for Putin to start purging the Keynesians that made their way into the Kremlin under the Yeltsin administration.

When news surfaced that Economy Minister Alexei Ulyukayev was arrested for accepting a bribe, I started parsing through the details to see if the incident may have been related to the palace politics I mentioned earlier. Ulyukayev is accused of accepting $2 million to “grease the skids” for a major deal between two Russian oil companies, and Putin dismissed him from service the same day he was arrested.

Corrupt oligarchs are the norm in Russia, so what’s the big deal? Although many in the media are characterizing Ulyukayev as an underling for Putin, Ulyukayev came into power under Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and held the position of Deputy Chairman of the Central Bank of Russia for 9 years prior. It was also the Medvedev economic team who bailed out major banks and initiated a stimulus program when the 2008/2009 recession hit the country- two very Keynesian policies. At this point, I began to wonder if Ulyukayev may have been the latest casualty in the war over Russia’s economic policies, and if the Stolypin Club had begun to eclipse their rivals.

Putin is a product of Russia’s corrupt oligarchical system. Formerly the mayor of St. Petersburg, any business who had planned to open up shop in his city needed his approval, and I’m willing to believe this is how Putin made many of his contacts among the Russian business and banking elites. But now, he claims to be cracking down on that corruption, perhaps in an effort to make Russian government and industry a bit more efficient and structured in case their economy continues to stagnate or decline.

“Putin hasn’t really done much to dismantle the corrupt system that has flourished in Russia under his rule — probably because graft is the glue that has held it together all these years. Yet he has appeared impatient with it since the 2014 Crimea land grab and the simultaneous oil price drop. No longer happy (or perhaps no longer able to comfortably afford) the crony capitalism of the 2000s, he wants a mobilized, militarized, patriotic nation that would circle its wagons against a perceived threat from the West and the economic difficulties that go with it. ”

Why Putin Sacrificed His Economy Minister

Putin is the one who has benefited greatly from cronyism, and it was Medvedev who ran on an anti-corruption platform, so Ulyukayev being dismissed by Putin for corruption is rather ironic. But the irony is lost on Putin’s more rabid supporters who are calling for a Soviet-style purge of all corrupt ministers and government workers. Some have even suggested that representatives from the FSB run the purged departments of government until an appropriate time for elections.

If Ulyukayev’s arrest is the beginning of a purge of Western Liberal economists from the Kremlin, it may have also been a litmus test to assess the political and social ramifications of further shake ups in senior leadership. Judging the public’s reaction to Ulyukayev’s arrest, I think a majority of the Russian people would buy into an anti-corruption cover story. If Putin begins to move against the Russian Central Bank or the rest of Medvedev’s team, then we can be sure there’s going to be another shakeup in Putin’s Kremlin.

“Putin has been careful not to threaten the economic team in Dmitry Medvedev’s government and the central bank.”

Why Putin Sacrificed His Economy Minister

So why the shake up? I think it may have something to do with the election of Trump, the death of TTP and other free trade deals, and a potential rehabilitation of the over-leveraged, bubble-prone debt finance model of economics. If Keynesians like Paul Krugman and Janet Yellen are in danger of falling out of favor in the West, then Keynesians in Russia should be listed as an endangered species.

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. ”

The Wikileaks Podesta Emails Part IV: Putin and Russia

“In terms of interesting, Vladimir Putin is always interesting. You’re never quite sure what he’s going to do or say next, and he’s always—he walks around with, you know, a redwood chip on his shoulder defending and promoting, you know, Mother Russia.”

Again, Assange has probably taken out the most sensitive information in Podesta’s emails and other leaks, but what information we do have illustrates Russia’s breakout from the hegemony run from Washington, London, and Berlin.

2008 Invasion of Georgia

This email from Podesta to Scott Lilly, a fellow at the Center for American Progress, concerns the Russian invasion of Georgia after Putin’s South Ossetian rebels had failed to dissuade Georgia from seeking NATO membership. Georgia lies in a geographically strategic area, with oil pipelines running from the Caspian Sea reserves to Europe circumventing the Russia/Iranian sphere of influence in the area. This pipeline was an economic anchor for the west to penetrate into the Caucuses, commonly referred to as Russia’s backyard.

“I have it on good authority that the DNI was completely caught off guard by the Russian invasion. He was, according to my information, watching CNN with his mouth wide open. This is a collosal[sic] failure of U.S. intelligence. The word inside the community is that overhead and other resources were so fully tasked on Iraq and Afghanistan that little was left for the South Caucuses. That indicates that the security costs presented by the Iraq occupation are even more profound than believed by many of us who worried about that issue.”

https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/1764

This also indicates that the Globalists had underestimated Putin’s gall. After George Soros and his NGO’s plundered Russian state assets and sold them for pennies under the Yeltsin regime, the Globalists didn’t think that Russia had the economic capability, let alone the political will, to launch a coordinated military campaign to rebuff western advances through the former Soviet satellite countries.

Too Defensive

In a paid speech to Goldman Sachs at the 2013 IBD CEO Annual Conference, Clinton is either sugar coating or misinterpreting Putin’s petulance and mistrust of the West as defensiveness.

“So we were making progress, and I think Putin has a different view. Certainly he’s asserted himself in a way now that is going to take some management on our side, but obviously we would very much like to have a positive relationship with Russia and we would like to see Putin be less defensive toward a relationship with the United States so that we could work together on some issues.”

Interesting

In yet another paid speech for the 2013 Jewish United Fund Of Metropolitan Chicago Vanguard Luncheon, Clinton talks about trying to break through a barrier of distrust.
 …
“In terms of interesting, Vladimir Putin is always interesting. You’re never quite sure what he’s going to do or say next, and he’s always—he walks around with, you know, a redwood chip on his shoulder defending and promoting, you know, Mother Russia. So he and I have had our interesting moments. He accused me of personally causing all the riots after the contested election two years ago, but he is someone who you have to deal with. You can’t, you know, just wish he would go away. He has a huge country and huge potential for causing problems for many people so I always tried to figure out some way to connect with him, what we could talk about that maybe we had some common ground”
Hillary is right when she says you can’t wish Russia would just go away. What she is talking about is Mackinder’s Heartland Theory, and the fact that every land invasion of Russia, from the Nazis in Operation Barbarossa, to Napoleon Bonaparte’s Grande Armee, and even the Mongol Hordes could not put Russia away for good. The combination of vast expanses of territory, harsh winters, and a massive human population have always been the root of Russia’s strength.

Putin Likes Tigers

At the same luncheon, Hillary claimed to have bonded with Putin over wildlife conservation.

“I said, ‘You know, Mr. Prime Minister, we actually have some things in common. We both want to protect wildlife, and I know how committed you are to protecting the tiger.’ I mean, all of a sudden, he sat up straight and his eyes got big and he goes, ‘You care about the tiger? I said, ‘I care about the tiger, I care about the elephant, I care about the rhinoceros, I care about the whale.’

So we go down the stairs, we go down this long hall, we go into this private inner sanctum. All of his, you know, very beefy security guys are there, they all jump up at attention, you know, they punch a code, he goes through a heavily-armed door. And then we’re in an inner, inner sanctum with, you know, just this long, wooden table, and then further back, there’s a desk and the biggest map of Russia I ever saw. And he starts talking to me about, you know, the habitat of the tigers and the habitat of the seals and the whales. And it was quite something.”

HWA Speech Flags [pdf] pg. 61

We should all remember that Putin was a member of the KGB working in East Germany. He may have let Hillary into his man cave, but Putin knows better than to ever, ever trust the Globalist elite.

Regardless of what you think of Putin, it’s fairly clear that he has refused to cooperate with the Globalist system, and I think he will never trust any member of the Washington elite or any Globalist. More distressingly, his defiance has been rewarded by his own efforts, and others are beginning to notice. What is so painfully obvious is how oblivious the elite are to the destruction of their own credibility.

The Wikileaks Podesta Emails – A Preface

The fact that looking at Clinton’s dirty secrets is being conflated with “Un-American” activities should raise a red flag in every mind.

Wikileaks- The Podesta Emails

In every election season there are leaks, scandals, and all forms of dirty laundry and accusations that seek to manipulate public perceptions, whether true or false. This season is extraordinarily sordid, which is not all that surprising considering the particularly high stakes of this election. With Wikileaks being a new participant in the process, the enabling power of secrecy and PR are now on display. Unfortunately for Mrs. Clinton and her campaign manager, John Podesta, I am not inclined to provide the particular PR service that the media offers her. This collection of emails is organized into themes and are drawn from every tranche released thus far, with updates.

However, the Globalists’ response to the latest leaks suggest that this issue has surpassed the realm of PR and mere obfuscation and is now bordering on levels of McCarthyism and an epistemological battle between two conspiracy theories. The Clinton Globalists are alleging a conspiracy between Trump and the Russians while Hillary and the Establishment at-large are accused of conspiring to exclude all candidates but her.

And according to CNN news anchor/drunk-driving street racer Chris Cuomo, “Remember, it’s illegal to possess these stolen documents. It’s different for the media…” More McCarthyism, more appeals to authority, and more of the arrogance and condescension for everyday people from the elites of the Establishment. It is due to this attitude, and the myriad of recent Globalist disasters from the Iraq war to the Syrian refugee crisis, that the credibility and legitimacy of the American government is degraded and being questioned (and it should be questioned in a truly free and open society). The fact that looking at Clinton’s dirty secrets is being conflated with “Un-American” activities should raise a red flag in every mind. Rather than parroting the Obama administration’s unproven accusations against Russia, the media should be trying to validate it by looking for proof. It is now the US who must prove the allegations against Russia or be accused of risking nuclear war for the usual, pathetic purposes of covering up Globalist chicanery and duplicity. Unless the validity of these emails are denied directly and specifically, they should not be considered false.

But we have yet to address the issue: is Trump working with the Russians? For me, the jury is still out. But if you were to listen to the mainstream media, you would think that Trump isn’t even smart enough to organize an Easter egg hunt let alone a massive, technologically sophisticated global conspiracy directing the Russian intelligence, Wikileaks, and moles within the federal government to influence the election. So which is it? Idiot or genius? You can’t have both.

On its face, the 2016 Presidential Election does indeed looks like it’s being stolen again, just like the 2000 election and just like Al Gore said then. And I’m not talking specifically about the media collusion, voter fraud perpetrated by corrupt election officials connected to local political machines, or the extremely questionable voting machines that everybody wants to ignore. I’m talking about the fact that of the four candidates running for office, Trump is accused of being a turncoat for Russia, Jill Stein is currently the subject of an arrest warrant, and the only socially “acceptable” alternative to the Globalist Clinton machine is a third party candidate who can’t even name one foreign leader. If there are any indications that Gary Johnson is controlled opposition, one is his strange habit of making funny faces in the middle of interviews and the fact that he didn’t even know what, or where, Aleppo is. Trump is rightly criticized for running without knowing the issues inside and out, but he seems to understand the issues better than Johnson, who seems to be running… for some reason?

The “response” that the US is preparing against Russia is foolish and not guaranteed to abate or deter future hacks. The US’s priority should be to further secure classified information from hacking, and not to push a conspiracy theory implicating Russia without providing proof. I suspect that the US is incapable of stopping these hacks due to inherent vulnerabilities and built-in back doors to computer databases that were established in the 80’s as part of an elaborate plan to facilitate international electronic espionage, a plan which the Chinese may have recently caught onto. On that, I cannot be more specific.

Tit For Tat: 9/11 Bill Passes and Oil Prices Rise

Issues of legal liability not withstanding, the biggest ramification of the passing of the bill has yet to manifest itself on the world scene.

In the midst of a currency war pitting the American petrodollar against the Russian oil-ruble, a fault line grinding away between Washington and Saudi Arabia has given way. For the past six months the Saudis have vehemently opposed the passage of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, even threatening to dump $750 billion worth of US Treasury securities.

Saudi Arabia Warns of Economic Fallout if Congress Passes 9/11 Bill

On the 27th of September, President Obama’s veto was overridden by Congress and the bill was passed into law. If the Saudis are threatening their own ally and Obama is calling the override “a mistake,” the stakes have to be high and the consequences profound, but in what way?

Despite threats to sell off Treasury securities, the Saudis are certainly not in a position to deal giant blows to their economy. The recent oil glut coordinated by the Saudis, OPEC and the West to keep oil prices low and to stifle Russia’s economy has stifled the Saudi economy as well. Recent attempts to privatize and sell off the state-run Aramco oil company have failed to garner sufficient investors. Saudi plans currently in place to diversify their economy by the year 2030 are already reliant on heavy foreign investment and capital as well as government funding for education reforms and the creation of a technically skilled work force. Selling off all US Treasury assets and imploding the Saudi economy is simply not an option if they want to maintain their goals.

Obama’s concerns that the bill would introduce new legal liabilities is indeed a valid one. The day the bill was passed, an organization called the “Iraqi National Project” declared their intention to sue the US government over war crimes during the Iraq War. Later that week, a widow who lost her husband at the Pentagon filed a suit against the Saudis, bringing to light another, more urgent concern for these two governments. New information regarding the struggle that took place on 9/11 could become public due to the discovery process of lawsuits. With 9/11 being such a big event that impacted so many people, nobody can say exactly how many lawsuits could be filed, or how many subpoenas could be served to the Saudis and the various departments of the US government.

Issues of legal liability not withstanding, the biggest ramification of the passing of the bill has yet to manifest itself on the world scene.

OPEC Agrees to Cut Production, Sending Oil Prices Soaring

The day after Obama’s veto was overridden, OPEC and Saudi Arabia announced they would cut oil production. Allowing oil prices to rise will give oil nations a short economic reprieve from the glut, something that Venezuela could have used two years ago. It also boosts the Russian economy and the value of the ruble as Russian oil sales become more profitable as well. The Saudis say that the price increase will be temporary and that the glut is not over, but this could be taken as a warning from the Saudis to the Globalists. They may not be able to crash the US economy without crashing their own, but they can help America’s rivals in a way that is equally beneficial to themselves. The Saudis understand that if potentially embarrassing information about them is in danger of being released from these lawsuits, they will need to have a way to pressure the Globalists into keeping their secrets for them.
