    "Flynn Plea Shows Collusion With… Israel?"

    Best explanation I’ve seen yet of the Flynn case.  Explanation by Max Blumenthal on the Real News, interviewed by Alex Mate.  I’ve seen some of this in text form here at JPR (not sure if it was text from the same report), but this is the clearest, plainest statement of what Flynn was doing, diplomatically, for Israel and to de-escalate U.S./Russia tensions in Syria.  Whether you agree with this viewpoint or not, Blumenthal has vital information and analysis that all of us should be aware of.

    I think, though, that the entire Mueller show is “the circus” of “give them bread and circuses,” while “the bread” is being massively stolen from the poor majority by Congress’ nation-wrecking, billionaires’ tax heist.  That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t pay some attention to the doings of our internally warring Deep State.  The billionaires on both sides of this internal war need watching on the front of the stage as well as behind the curtain in so far as we can determine what is going on – or our best guesses as to what is going on – in that obscure region.

    One other thing (I don’t think Blumenthal mentions it):  I read another analysis here at JPR about the FBI entrapping General Flynn with illicit recordings – while Flynn was an envoy of the president-elect, and performing a normal activity of president-elects – and then compelling him to answer questions about those conversations from memory, while they held the illicit transcripts of them.  Who among us could not be so entrapped?

    I don’t trust the FBI or Mueller.  Why should we?  Just because we despise Trump?  Arguably General Flynn stopped the CIA’s horrendous project in Syria of funding and arming extreme jihadists.  Is that why he is being targeted?  In the diplomatic phone calls, he was trying to help Israel on the anti-Israel resolution before the UN, and trying to convince the Russians not to over-react to Obama’s sanctions.  Where is the “crime” in this?  He may be a corrupt business man (one among MANY, on both sides of this internal war) but why was he in particular targeted for entrapment?  – I mean, apart from the “circus” value?

    There are enormously important developments on the geo-political front right now – the Russia-Iran-Syria alliance, the Russia-China alliance, the BRICS alliance (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa), the expected conversion by these alliances from the U.S. “petrodollar” to other currencies, and the Saudi coup (possible coming demise of the Saudi monarchy – it is quite fragile, according to knowledgeable analysts like Pepe Escobar), the re-alignment of power in the Middle East, the potentially explosive presence of U.S./NATO missiles and troops on Russia’s borders and more.  These developments, plus the billionaires’ Final Looting of the “land of the free/home of the brave” are going to affect us mightily even as we struggle with catastrophic climate change.  We need to understand these developments as they swirl like hurricane winds around our imperial seat with its circus tents and its deeper goings on.

    1. Who knows what's what with the permanent government?

    I’m pretty sure they don’t know, themselves.

    But the Big Picture is embarrassingly simple.  An Empire cannot rule the world by borrowing money from the world.

    4. I'm way more afraid of collusion and interference from Israel than any other two

    counties combined.

    Thank you.

    I wasn’t sure when I first read this is it was original or not. Another mod looked for me because I ran out of time this morning.

    6. Hmm….

    Part of it, I think, is that people still can’t understand how the reality of our billionaire, idiot of a President came to be.  Clinton would have pretended to give a shit with considerably more success.  So… a reason is sought, a means to remove the problem.  Russia is a convenient scapegoat.  It couldn’t possibly be their fault that Trump won, so Clintonites double down on their rhetoric, making scapegoats, also, of Sanders an Stein.

    The gist of it is that people want someone to blame.  Someone not aligned with them.  Taking responsibility for this insane government is too much for sane people to handle.  Fortunately for me I’m nuts.
