Matt Taibbi, Russia Isn’t Dividing Us — Our Leaders Are

MATT TAIBBI A last-ditch effort to derail the Sanders campaign fails as voters finally reject the Russia con, The latest act in the comedy began Friday, just before voting opened in the Nevada Democratic caucus. The Washington Post ran a story — sourced, I’m not joking, to “people familiar with the matter” — explaining that Bernie Sanders had been briefed that “Russia is attempting to help his presidential campaign as part of an effort to interfere with the Democratic contest.” Sanders was quick to see through the gambit. “I’ll let you guess about one day before…

Jim Fetzer, Why the Impeachment Trial may Come to an Abrupt End

Jim Fetzer                     “If we don’t impeach this guy, he will get reelected”–Rep. Al Green (D-TX)   For only the third time in American history, a President of the United States has been impeached by the House of Representatives, in this case, on the grounds of Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress. The first article purports to be based upon a phone call with the President of Ukraine, where he is alleged to have withheld foreign aid unless Ukraine were…

K.R. Claviger, Roger Stone Kangaroo Trial Set to Start on November 5th – Outcome Is Already Set

Stone is facing a total of seven charges: Count…

FBI document (absurdly) warns conspiracy theories are “a new domestic terrorism threat”

Jane Winter* [Editor’s note: Of all the absurdities associated with the FBI, now one demented agent wants to save us from the necessity to think because the agency will do it for us! Notice the dominant “conspiracy theory” of the past several years is the left-wing “RussiaGate” allegation that Donald Trump conspired with Russia to secure his election over Hillary Clinton. Rachel Maddow has gone down “big time” with the Mueller Report and his pathetic testimony to Congress, which was a disaster for Democrats. For those who retain the ability…

EXONERATED: No collusion, no obstruction… Trump cleared in bombshell Mueller report, exposing bald-faced LIES of the anti-Trump media

Mike Adams  [Editor’s note: The New York Times has just made The Mueller Report searchable.] (Natural News) The media narrative has collapsed. The Trump / Russia collusion hoax has been exposed. The full report from Robert Mueller completely clears President Trump of both collusion and obstruction. This means it is now confirmed the media has been running a massive, coordinated, insidious disinformation campaign to misinform the American people and destroy our democratic Republic. Glen Greenwald is perhaps the last remaining honest “progressive” reporter in the world. He’s a gay, left-leaning…

Jonah Goldberg, Audience has Made Up its Mind about “Waiting for Mueller”

Jonah Goldberg Samuel Beckett’s “Waiting for Godot,” a play in which two men sit around and wait for someone who never shows up, has been claimed by just about everyone: Freudians, Christians, existentialists.Who’s right? I haven’t a clue.But I have lived, all of us have lived, through a similar tragicomedy (a word Beckett added to the subtitle for the English version of his play). We’ve been waiting for Mueller. And waiting.For some, the waiting is the hardest part. But by historic standards, special counsel Robert Mueller has been working at…

COHEN, sfc1@nyu.edu, and via Caitlin Graf, caitlin@thenation.com Cohen is professor emeritus at New York University and Princeton University.   He is author of the just-released book War with Russia? From Putin and Ukraine to Trump and Russiagate. He just wrote “Anti-Trump Frenzy Threatens to End Superpower Diplomacy” for The Nation:”Why the frenzy now? Perhaps because Russiagate promoters in high places are concerned that special counsel Robert Mueller will not produce the hoped-for ‘bombshell’ to end Trump’s presidency. Certainly, New York Times columnist David Leonhardt…

Paul Craig Roberts: There is No Case Against Julian Assange so Lies take the place of Evidence

Paul Craig Roberts Julian Assange is not guilty of any crime. But Washington is going to convict him anyway. Documents are being fabricated to show that Assange met inside the Ecuadoran Embassy in London with Paul Manafort and some Russians. The logs of all visits to the Embassy have been released and show no such meetings. This latest fabrication was dumped on the public by the Guardian, formerly a leftwing newspaper but today a MI6 asset. Luke Harding who was leaked the fake documents is either extremely gullible or himself…

Challenge to Brad Friedman on Sandy Hook and Kavanaugh Nomination

  Jim Fetzer Imagine my surprise when I received the Brad Blog for today, discussing Susan Collins decision to vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh, where Brad was describing this and the Gorsuch seats as “including one blatantly stolen seat and two men accused of sexual misconduct and/or assault”. Since I have thought he was a smart guy in the past, I decided to write to him in response to his blog as follows:     My confidence in you has been severely shaken by your indefensible position on the Kavanaugh…
