This discouraging to read but, is quite informative.  Perhaps some of us can prepare for what is to come.....

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,

Since 2016 the United States has been in the Russiagate box, a hoax created by the US military/security complex to prevent President Trump from normalizing relations with Russia.  Normalized relations would devalue THE RUSSIAN THREAT, an orchestration that protects the $1,000 billion annual budget of the military/security complex.  

The Democratic Party, which most certainly is not democratic, supported the hoax hoping to do Trump in for their own reasons and pulled the presstitute media into the conspiracy against Trump.

Now that all the assurances from the Establishment that Trump was a traitor to America who conspired with Russian President Putin to steal the election from the killer-bitch in order that America could serve Russian interests have been exposed as lies by the Mueller report, American attention is free to take up some other nonsensical campaign. The succession of these stupidities is destroying America’s reputation.

True, some of the most crazed of the Democrats and media whores cannot let go of Russiagate.  The presstitutes are saying that Trump would be impeached for his non-crime except the unworthy Democrats had rather go back to the business of spending other people’s money.  A crazed professor or two have declared that Mueller was part of the “Trump coverup” and that Mueller needs to be investigated.  But these claims simply underline that the United States wasted three years of its existence.

Meanwhile, other countries moved on.

he Russians, for example, discovered that Washington’s sanctions had a silver lining.  Russia became more self-sufficient economically and moved out of the box of being an exporter of raw materials to the West, a box into which the Americans and the American-brainwashed Russian economics profession had put the Russian government.

The fulminations and threats from Washington against Russia brought forth new Russian weapon systems for which the US has no match or defense, weapons that demote the US to a second-rate military power.

On an adjusted basis, China now has the world’s largest economy and increasingly ignores Washington’s blustering.  As does Iran.

Even Venezuela stands up to Washington.

The world is concluding that Washington is not the power it thinks it is.

Washington’s abuse of its reserve currency role and violations of international law have encouraged a movement away from the use of the dollar in international transactions. This is perhaps even a more serious threat to Washington’s power than Russia’s superior military capabilities.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt was happy to see World War II because he understood that it would leave Britain bankrupt and without an empire.  Roosevelt understood that the gain would be America’s, because the US would take over the reserve currency role.  The reason this is important is that the reserve currency country can pay its bills by printing money.  Thus, the government has no budget constraints.  

For a country as indebted as America, to lose this role would be a crushing blow.  It is this blow that Washington faces as a result of its idiotic policy of sanctions and disrespect of international law.

Wow, that is an epic and scary article. PCR tells it like it is. All the lost opportunities because of this Russia hoax fixation.

What he is saying is the Country has squandered the last 2-3 years investigating fraudulent claims.

Much public treasure has been spent and wasted.
excellent

It is an excellent read.
Quote:A great promise was betrayed by those trusted with the promise. A government accountable to law and to the people requires a united people, not the disunity of multiculturalism and Identity Politics. With the indigenous ethnic base of all of the Western countries under attack as “white supremacists,” the West can no longer defend its culture from the immigrants who do not share the culture.

I like PCR enough to be a supporter with a small monthly donation that I've kept up for years. But he's one of the range of views and when you factor them all in, and reach the common ground, his sits in the area of the used-to-be-before Trump area.

PCR sees a lot, but he doesn't see, like The Saker who also doesn't see, that Trump has changed the game. Trump has forced them to go full-commie too early. And this is exposing them to the people. This is the driver behind the Great Awakening. Going slowly as they've been doing since the 60's is what has kept them under the radar and the only people who noticed and discussed them were easily labelled as fringe kooks. And they knew from the Weimar Republic days when they went too fast and the people noticed back then, that this would happen if they let the sheets fly, as they are now doing.

Which can only mean they've gone collectively insane giving up on their plan in operation since Elizabethean times, or they know it's Trump or them so they're gathering the forces for a showdown.

As most here know Pike's letter to Manzinni (he BTW was the guy who took over the Illuminati from Weishaupt), WWIII is supposed to be between Muslims and Christians. And this is what the [often] manufactured terrorism incidents and the whole identity politics is ultimately about. To whip up the Muslims and to degrade Christian unity and collective capability as much as possible, on as many simultaneous fronts as possible.

But global society is a long, long way from a trans-national conflict like Pike described, miles away. So I can only see that bit of the plan coming to fruition if they can pick up after Trump and continue with a reset schedule. But it's not possible now, under today's conditions.

Which leads us to Russia and China as the only potential immediate threats. A lot of people don't get Russia, but your foremost Russian expert Stephen Cohen does, and he's worth looking into on this. You can't understand Russia unless you understand the Russian mentality and overlay the scars of the 20th century over that. I studied Russian history and politics at college and ever since one thing from those days has proven true. Russia thinks and acts defensively not offensively and that goes back to the ancient days of Muskovy and the development of the Russian Empire. Russia is like an onion. Moscow is at the centre, and everything leads out from there in concentric layers. That's what the Warsaw Pact was about. It wasn't, as the Western sheeple were gravely informed, a dagger thrust into the heart of Europe, (victors write the history). No, it was a series of layered defences against what Patton had wanted the US Army to do in 1944-5.

I realise that's totally counter-intuitive to every Western person whose never looked into it but one of the greatest lessons in life for me came from a brilliant British jurist called Lord Denning. When he was a defence lawyer he once said that before preparing the case for the defence he'd first prepare the prosecution case. In other words, it's hard to know the truth if you dont know both sides of it.

But Russia is like a bear in a cave, and you don't want to stand in the entrance of a bear cave, that's not a good idea. But this is precisely what the US/NATO has been doing. Ukraine was a regime-change in Russia's underbelly. When Putin annexed Crimea, he did it cos Crimea is 80% ehtnic Russian, used to belong to Russia anyway before Stalin gave it to Ukraine in the 50's, and the newly installed UkroNazi regime was threatening their safety. But to most Western people it was an offensive move. This is a perfect example of how the Cold War propaganda ran and as you can see, it's still running. Not to mention all the NATO bases which are installed in breach of the agreement Reagan and Gorbachev made when the wall came down: that NATO would not occupy the Eastern European nations next to Russia. How would you feel if you were a Russian thinking like a Russian, watching all of this, from inside Russia?

Russia's not the problem but she is half of the answer toward destroying the international branch of the Deep State. An alliance between Russia and Germany would combine Russian resources with German engineering and manufacturing. Combine that in a partnership with the US and you have a perfect foil to China. Bring Chinese co-operation and you have the human species beginning to explore the universe within the next several decades. Bring Chinese or Western aggression and you have WWII.

China was obviously being setup by DS to become their new playground while we Christians and Muslims slaughtered each other in inventive ways in our own homelands. This was why they invented the off-shoring movement in the 90's with their slave consultants from McKinsey leading the charge. Gifting China money from their banks to build new plant filled with the best Western equippment and the best IP you could steal for free at no penalty thrown in.

Obviously the Chinese in the 90's said thanks very much and the "economic miracle" rolled out.

That was the plan till Trump.

Cleverly Trump is exploiting a significant weakness in the Chinese framework. The one-party state relies on continuing economic support to stay in power. If things get too bad over there, the people will demand democracy and they couldn't stop that and they know it.

Trump won't let it get that bad, there is no advantage in des-stabilising China on current calculations, but that card is always in the bag for the West.

But that China-Western stand-off I mentioned won't happen because the US behaviour has pushed and continues to push Russia toward China which means its Russia+China vs the West and that's not the best equation. And Trump has to know that. Personally I'm hoping that Trump is feinting till he's in a position to tackle Israeli leadership and the neocon traitors in the US on both political sides and when he's done that he'll start making the right noises. I'm hoping that but not necessarily expecting that.
Unfortunately I think this all too true. It does seem like we have squandered much time in foolishness (Dims!) and part2 is slow coming about, and if and when it happens, more time wasted.

I understand President Trump needs to take out the low people and work up, but THAT seems to be taking too long! POTUS has to win the next election which I believe he will, but even then, our country will be changed forever, even from how we perceive it today. Very discouraging.

The only good thing out of this is who the top people are President Trump is after ~ when they get taken down the world will be a better place. Even knowing this, hoping it does happen, it still is discouraging.
