Accuracy in Media

While Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump is talking about cooperation with Russia, The Wall Street Journal is reporting that one of America’s top generals, NATO Supreme commander General Philip Breedlove, is saying that the United States and its allies have to immediately address Russian military aggression.

“We see that Russia has not accepted the hand of partnership but has chosen a path of belligerence,” Breedlove is quoted by the paper as saying. “We need to readdress where we’re heading.” Breedlove is retiring as NATO supreme commander and commander of U.S. European Command.

By contrast, Trump recently gave a foreign policy address that completely ignored Russian aggression in Ukraine, leading to a warm reception in Moscow for the Republican candidate.

The curious omission by Trump is one of several actions or statements he has made on Russian affairs that led Jonathan Chait to write an article for New York magazine entitled, “Why Is Donald Trump a Patsy for Vladimir Putin?” Attempting to explain Trump’s statements of support for Russian President Putin, he cited evidence of “Russia’s campaign to cultivate influence in the West by corrupting members of the American media and political Establishment.”

In addition to Russian aggression in Europe and the Middle East, Breedlove’s successor, Army General Curtis Scaparrotti, says that U.S. military leaders “should keep everything on the table,” including a military response, if Russia engages in more military provocations directly against U.S. forces. Such incidents have included Russian fighter jets harassing U.S. Navy ships.

The general said that Putin “is deliberately trying to break up NATO,” a pro-American alliance that Trump has suggested is “obsolete.”

In its story on how U.S. military leaders are getting increasingly concerned about Russia’s aggressive intentions, the Journal explained, “In the wake of Russia’s stealthy invasion and annexation of Crimea, the U.S. intelligence community, in particular military intelligence, came under withering criticism for having failed to adequately warn policy makers and military leaders.”

The term “military intelligence” is mostly a reference to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), whose former director, Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn, has come under fire for his close relationship with the Russia Today (RT) propaganda channel.

AIM was the first to report that Flynn, after stepping down from DIA, went to Moscow to participate in the 10th anniversary celebration of the Moscow-funded and English-language channel known to its critics as KGB-TV. He sat at a dinner table with Putin and RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan.

In a major embarrassment for Flynn, a recent article in Politico by Michael Crowley cited Flynn’s relationship with RT as “the most intriguing example of how the Russians have gone about recruiting disaffected members” of the Washington, D.C. foreign policy establishment.

The term “recruiting” suggests using Flynn for anti-American propaganda purposes.

Crowley, senior foreign policy writer at Politico, said that Flynn’s attendance at the RT gala, which also included remarks on world affairs, “appeared to inaugurate a relationship with the network—presumably a paid one, though neither Flynn nor RT answered queries on the subject. Flynn now makes semi-regular appearances on RT as an analyst, in which he often argues that the U.S. and Russia should be working more closely together on issues like fighting ISIL and ending Syria’s civil war.”

In addition to his relationship with RT, Flynn has described himself as an informal adviser to Trump, who already has several pro-Russian aides and advisers.

“We weren’t focused on Russia when I came in three years ago because we were still trying to cast a paradigm that brought Russia into the fold of Western values,” said Breedlove, in an attempt to explain why the Pentagon was caught off-guard by Russia. He said, “Russia chose a different path or they were on that path and we didn’t recognize it.”

What he is describing is a massive intelligence failure that could stem from the work of agents of influence for Russia, or actual Russian spies.

Trump, however, continues to preach cooperation with Russia.

The scope of the intelligence failure regarding Russia was addressed recently by the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), who admitted to CNN’s Jake Tapper on April 12 that the U.S. government has badly “misjudged” the intentions of Putin “for many, many years.” He declared, “The biggest intelligence failure that we have had since 9/11 has been the inability to predict the leadership plans and intentions of the Putin regime in Russia.”

After the Russian invasion of Georgia in 2008, Rep. Nunes noted, the U.S. continued to engage diplomatically with the Russians, and “we continued to talk to the Russians, and then they invaded Eastern Ukraine.” “We missed that,” he said. “And then we completely missed entirely when they put a new base, a new base with aircraft into the Mediterranean, into Syria. We just missed it. We were blind.”

While Trump’s speech was given to an audience of foreign policy experts, including Russia’s ambassador to Washington, Sergey Kislyak—who was sitting in the front row—the former DIA director’s pro-Moscow actions and statements are also generating controversy. The Politico article on Flynn’s visit to Moscow said, “At a moment of semi-hostility between the U.S. and Russia, the presence of such an important figure at Putin’s table startled current and former members of the Obama administration. “

Politico’s Michael Crowley quoted a former Pentagon official as saying about Flynn, “It was extremely odd that he showed up in a tuxedo to the Russian government propaganda arm’s party.”

Even more significant is the verdict delivered by New York magazine’s Chait regarding Trump himself. He says that while Trump’s style and bombastic statements on foreign policy and other areas are considered controversial by some, the much bigger scandal may be that “Trump is Vladimir Putin’s stooge.” The story carried the implication that Trump is acting like an agent of influence for Putin’s Russia.

The failures in the intelligence community regarding Russia and the alleged penetration of the Washington, D.C. foreign policy establishment by Russian agents seem like topics that need to be addressed by the House and Senate Intelligence Committees.

Ultimately, however, the American people may have to weigh the evidence, since presidential candidates don’t have to pass FBI background checks to determine their suitability for public office.

Chait described the Trump-Putin relationship as “campaign-threatening,” a charge that could hand the November election to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton if Trump secures the GOP nomination, and if he is perceived to be friendly with a U.S. adversary or enemy.

If Trump is perceived as an agent of influence for Putin, the Republican Party could be greatly embarrassed and Mrs. Clinton could come across as more solid in her knowledge and conduct of foreign affairs, despite her classified email scandal and foreign policy failures such as Benghazi.

  • Even as a US Air Force officer seeking mega-bucks for his toys from naïve
    taxpayers, this guy CAN’T believe this political nonsense.

    When you use a military alliance still euphemistically called “NATO” to
    attack three countries in fifteen years – Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Libya –
    you no longer have a static defensive alliance; you have a very real offensive
    threat to Russia. The clincher was the eight-month remote-control war against
    Libya that left the country in rubble and its leader dead in a sewer – which
    sent a very clear message to Moscow that Russia could very well be next in
    “NATO’s” crosshairs. Everything that followed Libya concerning Russia was always
    100% predictable, and people like Breedlove KNOW it.

    It’s nearly impossible to get more “provocative” or “aggressive” or
    “belligerent” than an unopposed “NATO” has been acting since the Warsaw Pact
    imploded a quarter of a century ago. With military stuff, it’s never what you
    SAY; it’s always how your actions are PERCEIVED. We even lied to the Russians
    about our true intentions in Libya to avoid their UN veto of the Libya
    “no-fly-zone” resolution. It was never about “human rights”. “Human rights”
    was just the “Albright Doctrine” subterfuge used to prosecute “regime change”,
    i.e., war. (To our undying shame, we even repeated Pearl Harbor, the London
    Blitz, and then like total idiots tried to rationalize that “it isn’t war unless
    you put boots on the ground.” What moron would ever believe such utter
    stupidity? Certainly not those UNDER the falling bombs.)

    And now we have all this silly righteous indignation about Russian jets
    buzzing our spy planes and ships spooking around in international waters against
    Russian defense and communication systems. And this while the media ignores
    all those “NGO” contractors out there doing State and USAID’s “plausible denial”
    bidding in the shadows in Ukraine, Egypt, Georgia, Russia, Cuba, and a dozen
    other countries, advancing stealth “revolution” and “democracy” via “regime
    change by other means” – also on the US taxpayer’s dime.

    Break up “NATO”? It’s nothing but a political bureaucracy masquerading as a
    military alliance and manipulated by inept vainglorious politicians who don’t
    know which end of a rifle the bullet comes out. “NATO” should have been retired
    when its mission was completed in 1992. Ever since, Western politicians have
    been struggling to re-create the necessary opposing conventional “enemy” that
    “NATO” needs to justify its existence and keep the dumb Americans on Europe’s
    short leash.

    Breedlove belongs to that gaggle of political animals desperately trying to move the world BACKWARDS forty whole years to a time when all those incredibly expensive toys actually had some realistic role to play, to a time when conventional warfare was a lot easier to deal with than the low-tech messiness of unconventional warfare and its terrorism. The Air Force still calls those flying super-computers “fighters”, even though it’s been a half century since they fought anyone. They use those fancy machines as bombers, as incredibly expensive artillery pieces.

    As a professional American ground soldier, I’d much rather stand beside Russian soldiers than just about any Sunday soldiers in Europe. Trump may not understand WHY this whole picture is so screwed up. But it’s a good thing that at least he recognizes that it IS screwed up. We need to finally retire “NATO” and start over with a new alliance actually designed for THIS century – with Russia as a core member partner. A century of babysitting the Europeans is enough.

  • Karl Pershing

    I agree with you 100%. But NATO was originally created to keep the Germans down, keep Americans in and Russia out. However NATO is indeed outdated.
    The reason our media and government is anti Putin is because the Russian leader has stopped the Yinon Plan of Greater Israel Project. Putin did not allow Assad, the secular leader to fall. Israeli lobby requires that the middle east be taken over by absolute chaos. We are doing all these for Israeli 21st century national security.

  • Karl Pershing

    Question for you: How likely do you think it is for Israelis to conduct a USS Liberty type attack against one of our ships in the Persian Gulf and blame it on Iran?

  • RMThoughts

    The US and the West, through NATO, appear to be hell-bent in starting a war with Russia; unfortunately, it is a war that NATO and the US may well not win.

    At this time in its history, the US military does not have the weaponry, the troop strength, the manufacturing, or the money to insure a positive outcome to war with Russia. Much less Russia and China combined.

  • I do not believe that Russia has any intention at all to “roll over” any Balkan states or Poland or any other eastern European state. The notion is simply ludicrous. I believe that Russia’s military intentions are in her own defensive self-interests given the realities of her situation as presented by the huge “NATO” military alliance always screaming in her face. Americans may be incredibly naïve when it comes to military matters, but the Russians definitely are not. They know full well that the US military currently presents an insurmountable obstacle, against which they would have zero chance.

    Military forces and missions have to be sustained by economic realities. Russia’s gross domestic product is about $2 Trillion – about 1/3 smaller than Great Britain’s GDP alone. The GDP of the EU is more than nine times larger than Russia’s. If you add the US GDP to that equation, you get a vague notion of “the mouse that roared” in viewing today’s Russia as a threat to Europe. The reverse, however, is a very different matter. As in chess, the FIRST military task is to realistically view the board from the other side’s vantage. Just ask yourself, “What are the chances of Canada rolling over Europe?” (If Europe actually views such a threat as realistic, then perhaps they DESERVE to be “rolled over”.)

    I also believe that most former Soviet republics, in their own best interests, could do a far better job of equitably treating ethnic Russians who found themselves suddenly citizens of those new countries after the fall of the Warsaw Pact. In certain cases, that treatment has been just shameful.

    The whole idea with all that silly “NATO” propaganda is to keep the Americans – both their taxpayers and their military forces – carrying the lion’s share of Europe’s own defense burden. To do that, they need a credible conventional bogeyman, even if they have to manufacture it. And the bogeyman, mindful of history from Napoleon to Hitler, must shore up her western defenses.

    China is an entirely different matter. The Chinese are following the American playbook of the 20th century to secure their inevitable position in the world during this century. But, also with China, we would do ourselves and the American people a far bigger favor if we spent more time trying to view the board from China’s vantage, especially when she’s faced with an arrogant super-power every time she turns around.

  • RMThoughts

    Any future war will have a nuclear component which will be the great equalizer.

  • Baloney. The Russians are not ISIS lunatics.

    The “great equalizer” is not nuclear weapons; the “great equalizer” is unconventional warfare – the really tough stuff of special operations forces. The US, with a population of nearly 320,000,000, has been able to field only about 1/10th the numbers of these guys needed, not against Russia, but in the real world of the 21st century. (I’m speaking mainly of US Army Special Forces professionals.)

    Since 1990, it’s always been a matter of simple logic: The only way to realistically challenge a single conventional super-power is unconventionally, with a strategy that starts with infantry and rifles and really smart thinking.

    It is not our toys that the Europeans want most. It is our ground soldiers, who are willing to do stuff the Europeans are not. Anyone can push buttons from the very safe rear. But America fields large numbers of professional ground soldiers, who are supported by the toys.

  • asclepiuskay

    I will be backing russia in this instance. if anything is instigated it more than likely would have a western backing given our track record. i hate the warmongering west and ive lived here my whole life. its like having a bully older brother that you want to see get beat up for once. UNLESs… . . . . . .

  • RMThoughts

    U.S.-funded “color-coded” revolutions try to dump Russian friendly regimes all across Russias “near abroad.” NATO, despite solemn U.S. assurances given to Gorbachev, incorporate all of Eastern Europe; moved troops and heavy weapons to Russia’s border, yet Gen. Philip Breedlove, tell us “Russia has not accepted the hand of partnership,” and “but has chosen a path of belligerence.”

    Can’t make this stuff up.

  • ConservativeSenior

    Is this one of the generals who has been letting obama get away with treason all these years?

  • Webuppp

    Your over analyzing. Forget nato, Putin has been advancing “old” interests & territories lost coming on 5 now. Where’s nato? How about the Christians in the Middle East being hunted, torture, when the Christians won’t deny Jesus, the Arabs perform a ritual. The Kor’on tells the arab ” to smite them at their neck” ” to convert or die by the sword”. Where’s America on this? How about turkey? Turks have the 2nd strongest military in the Middle East, and last I looked Syrians are getting whacked as well, only the Christian Syrians( very few most already have been murdered) are getting their heads cut off. Russia doesn,t want a nucular war, they haven,t drank that much vodka. Putin controlled the kgb. He,s flexing, he,s trying what all tyrants do, land grab. Only in his mind, he,s taking back land lost after the Berlin Wall fell. Forget the Russians. It’s the Arab radicle fundamentalist, who worships the pagan god allah. That’s who you need to keep an eye on. By the way, to any Marxist reading, the Syrians don’t want to come to American when asked. They want to stay in Syria. They are being forced to flee, setting up a safe zone, accomodates all concerns both foreign & domestic

  • Webuppp

    The Israelis don’t need us you dissalusioed nitwit. The Israelis have sophisticated military hardware we haven,t even developed, as we have some they haven’t. Isreal IS the strongest military in all of the Mideast. Turkey has a larger standing army, but not the weaponry. How much land has Isreal given over for peace? And how exactly is that Creating chaos? Can you see how silly you look with your anti Semitic hate Jew propaganda. Get ye behind us Satan.

  • Karl Pershing

    Oy Vey…. The Goyim know…Shut it down! LOL

  • Webuppp

    God gives man free will, choice, to choose how one will govern their lifes. It was the satanic cult known as the nazi’s lead by a satanic leader named hitlery, I mean hitler that killed the Israelites. Again, you show your ignorance, not all Israelis in those concentration camps were Jews. Judaism is a religion dude, not a nationality. It was German national Marxists that killed the Hebrew, not God, the Hebrew is the apple of God’s eye, how else can you explain the only culture in the history of mankind that lost it’s nation 2500 years ago to the Babylonian empire, then, recapture all it’s lands while still maintaining it’s complete culture. Language, history, religion? Never in the annals of man,s history as any culture duplicated this feat. Only almighty God could do such a thing. You picked the wrong man to quarry mister. And I,m brainwashed? Typical progressive moral high ground idiot drone. Your dismissed.

  • Webuppp

    Wow, such intellect, glad to see that public education didn,t go to waste

  • Webuppp

    By the way nitwit, they called Europe the “dark ages” for a reason. Europe was dead in the spirit of God during that time period. Also your false narrative about a Christian Europe during ww2 is conjured in your own head. During that time period, nearly all Europe had already been secularized. Back to the huffington post for you idiot, your not sophisticated enough to blog here

  • Webuppp

    Spoken like a true progressive Marxist, congratulations on that. you have a national party here in the states now that embraces your tyrannical thinking asclep. They are called the democrat Marxist party usa. They not only will accept your tyrannical view, they enact policy to enact it

  • John_In_Michigan

    Trump, like most narcissists, is susceptible to flattery, and when Vlad complimented him a few months back Trump responded to the flattery. He really is shallow.

  • RMThoughts

    Gorbachev agreed to the reunification of Germany (West and East) and the dissolution of the Soviet Union with the preconditioned term that it (Russia) would be able to enter NATO as a full-fledged member of the European Community. The actions were taken: Germany reunified (the Berlin Wall fell in Nov. 1989) in 1990, and the Soviet Union “dissolved” in 1992. Those actions were then repaid with treachery: George H.W. Bush (Bush Senior) had no intention of ever allowing the Russians to join NATO or become a U.S. ally for that matter.

  • jug

    Wrong!
    Putin is trying to reconglomerate the old Soviet Union, no doubt about it!

    The problem is, both of our “presumptive” candidates are soft on Russia.
    One is highly invested in the country, and should be bared from being president, as such is a serious “conflict of interest”, and very possibly a National Security issue.

    The other one already has a “failed reset” behind her with Russia, along with her lining her own pockets with urainium sales, and should be in prison!

    The present US problem is that now Cruz has dropped out, mostly because Trump was able to sucessfully smear him so constantly and throughly, and that Trump through collusion with his good friend, Bill Clinton, decided to run on the republican ticket!
    I believe it was old Slick Willie who really pushed that idea, benefitting both Hillary and the democrat party in particular. You see, we now have NO republican, (real republican) even running in the National Election. Both republicans AND conservatives have effectively been locked out for the next 4 to 8 years!

    Trump is NOT a republican, never has been, no matter which party he was actually registered with, (this is at least his fifth “switcheroo”), at any given time! He has ALWAYS been a NY liberal democrat, much like Hillary herself. He supports big govt, is an eminent domain freak, bail outs, same sex marriage, Target type bathrooms that let ANY man is, as long as he claims that he feels “like a woman”!

    He has already offered “the fence”, as deal making material, he is going to toy with serious issues, and will be as bad as obutthole, if not worse!
    The one difference is possibly, the muslim issue.

    Obutthole will be getting off the hook, either HRC or Trump will be Putin’s new Bitch!

    As far as nuclear war goes, it wont be conventional, it will involve destroying the electrical grid with just minimal numbers of EMP weapons, and we have been badly out paced in that scenario!
    We are super vulnerable!

    Ready for the “Dark Ages” again? Literaly?

  • Julio Severo

    Serious, Kincaid, I do not understand you and your friends. Your Brazilian friend Olavo de Carvalho, who despises Putin and Russians as much as you do, has officially endorsed Trump. Are you not going to write about his conspiracy to help the Trump-Putin alliance?

  • As an accepted condition of my Regular Army service, I never get involved in partisan political nonsense. (Besides, it ALL just seems far too childishly ignorant and self-involved for my interests.)

    And I guess I’ll have to defer to your vastly superior knowledge on the
    military stuff. My 40-plus years as a professional ground soldier and
    strategic intelligence officer can’t hold a candle to your apparent expertise.

  • John

    The US Military/Navy is finding the are just instructed to murder innocent people abroad; not to defend any country. Do you really believe patriotism is that great in America? I think not.

  • John

    Sir, that is what I hope to see, the US defense aiding the defense of those countries that are purposely being destabilized of an governing body and many innocent people die as a result. Just like the US desperately wants to take Assad out to destabilize Syria. Putin claims NATO killed Gaddaffi, for unknown reasons. What I see happening in America stinks. Some call is fascism, as they chip away at the US foundation creating hate, racism, whatever it takes. So, what is happening abroad doesn’t phase me; it’s a world-wide movement. Thank you for your service. Salute.

    Just to add some fuel to the fire, Israel is being boycotted for their cruelty to mankind. A quick trip to YT will prove that.

    Spoken like a true Obama supporter, Weebupp.
    The Obama administration with the help of George Soros’ NGO’s created, with Billions of our tax payers money, the overthrow of a democratically elected government (as they continuously do all around the world).
    The people of Crimea voted overwhelmingly to join Russia and are now free from from the tyranny of western bankers.
    Vice President Joe Bidden’s son now sits on the board of Ukraine’s biggest energy company, making sure that the western bankers get their cut.
    All wars are bankers wars and it’s time for you to wake up and realize that Russia is not our enemy just because Obama and his NATO bitches say so.
    Trump is the only one that might bring some sanity to this situation.

    Over and out.

It,s a made up name. “Palestinians ” are actually Algerians. That,s right North Africans, not even from that region. The Palestinians are actually Algerian nomads, yessir in the late 30’s tried to overthrow the king of Jordan. Their failed attempt had them banished to the Gaza Strip and West Bank. These are historical facts your prolly hearing for the first time. The media is controlled by the Marxist, tuff to believe anything that comes from that source

  • Webuppp

    Obama is not aggressive against anyone but America. Obama is a Marxist. My allegance is to God, family country and in that order.

    Ron, 75 cents on every dollar made goes to Uncle Sam in one form of tax or another, meanwhile that same dollar is worth 60 cents. That a great way to reach 20 trillion.

Cruz showed me his true colors, I switched my allegance when Ted lied, he did support amnasty, he did say trump wants to steal our rite to bare arms, meanwhile trump,s talking about a nation wide conceal carry permit. Exactly the opposite of Ted,s claims.

  • Karl Pershing

    Not bad!

  • Ron Kramer

    Russia is not our enemy, and they have long ago quit being communists. The Obama administration has been using islamic jihadists as a proxy army against Assad in Syria, and Turkey (a NATO member) has been sheltering them and buying the oil that they steal from Syria.
    In the mean time the Obama administration pretends to be fighting ISIS by arming so called ‘moderate rebels’ (other jihadists) but the arms always end up in the hands of ISIS.
    Then Russia comes in, with the permission of Syria and quickly decimates the ISIS forces that Obama and friends love so much.
    Now NATO is drawing the battle lines on the eastern front, get the picture?

    ISIS are jihadi rebels trying to overthrow Assad, the so-called ‘moderate rebels’ are also jihadists trying to overthrow Assad…Russia was destroying both of these Christian murdering and raping demons that are armed and funded by the good ol’ USA and our allies (the wonderful free and democratic Christian states of Saudi Arabia and NATO member Turkey).

    Now, why would the nice friendly Obama Administration and his banker bosses want to do that?

    Answer: To interfere with the economic and resource arrangements between Russia and Syria.
    And who benefits from the carnage that, you apparently support and are happy to fund with your tax dollars? Western Bankers.

    Any Russian aggression that you see is only a response to being backed into a corner by NATO and the Obama administration. As I’ve clearly outlined in this thread.
    Any Questions?

    Trump on Putin and Syria Sep 2015

    http://www.breitbart.com/video/2015/09/29/trump-on-putin-controlling-syria-okay-fine-him-fighting-isis-wonderful-thing-very-little-downside/

    On Tuesday’s “O’Reilly Factor” on the Fox News Channel, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump stated that it’s “a wonderful thing” Russia’s Vladimir Putin is fighting ISIS and responded “Alright, okay, fine” after host Bill O’Reilly stated Putin would “never get out” of Syria.
    Trump said [relevant exchange begins around 3:55] of “in terms of leadership, he’s getting an A, and our president is not doing so well.”
    When asked what he thinks Putin is doing in the Middle East, Trump stated, “Well, we spent $2 trillion, thousands of lives, wounded warriors all over, and Putin is now taking over what we started, and he’s going into Syria, and he frankly wants to fight ISIS, and I think that’s a wonderful thing. You know, I said that a year ago and everybody said oh, that’s terrible. If he wants to fight ISIS, let him fight ISIS. Why do we always have to do everything. But he wants to go in. He wants to fight ISIS. Now, he wants to keep, as you know, he wants to keep your leadership, your current leadership, Assad in Syria. Personally I’ve been looking at the different players, and I’ve been watching Assad, and I’ve been pretty good at this stuff over the years, cause deals are people. And I’m looking at Assad and saying, ‘Maybe he’s better than the kind of people that we’re supposed to be backing.’ Because we don’t even know who we’re backing.”

    O’Reilly stated, “Once Putin gets in and fights ISIS on behalf of Assad, Putin runs Syria. He owns it. He’ll never get out, never.” Trump said, “Alright, okay, fine. I mean, you know, we can be in Syria. Do you want to run Syria? Do you want to own Syria? I want to rebuild our country.”

  • Webuppp

    No Ron, not surprised, people wonder why such hatred for America. Tuff to keep up with some of the insider horse play, tuff getting any trueisums. The international bankers have been in control of the states since they formed the counsel on foriegn relations in 1908. They,ve been running the worlds show thru the U.S. The UN being the backer.

    They created the Council on Foreign Relations when the American people rejected the League of Nations. After WWII they tried again with the United Nations (to promote Peace). This time it took and here we are.
    The only point that I would argue is that the creation of the Federal Reserve System in 1913 was the crucial turning point when the central bankers gained an enormous boost to their power over our nation (and the world).
    The fact that we are not allow to audit their books speaks volumes to their power, but I remember hearing about a congressional hearing were it was found that some of the major stockholders in the Federal Reserve are foreign banks.
    I may have to look that up when I get a chance, unless you do it first and let me know what you find.

    The original meeting of the minds occurred on Jewell island Georgia in the winter of 1908. @ this meeting, the ground work was laid out, and those their sign on. In 1921’the opened their doors officially @ the Howard Pratt house on 58 st west. Your boy Cruz’s wife is a member, sponsored by Connie rice. Colin Powell is CFR as well. They’re no way Ted could keep himself clean being that close to the flame. He had me with the filibuster, hook line and sinker.

  • Ron Kramer

    When did I ever mention Cruz?
    You’re all the sudden going to act like you know what’s going on now, after playing dumb believing the official narrative about Russia and Syria?
    Anyhow, I’m done here.
    Over and out.

    Julio thanks for questioning the idea of only two choices.
    Although a poor choice for president Trump is far far better than Hillary including against the aims of KGB trained Putin to put the world under his rule.

  • terry1956

    While of the three so far to be on the general ballot Trump comes in second place to a true American Patriot and a Marine vet Darrel Castle, Trump is still far better than Clinton and I doubt very much he is over come with the flattery of Putin although I still think like Ron Paul and even Pat Buchanan along with some of the usual comment posters here at AIM they have to much of a neive trust of Putin’s aims.
    As a builder in NYC and NJ Trump likely would not be fooled by flattery alone and likely he would suspect the aims of the person dishing it out when negotiating a deal.

  • terry1956

    So is it likely that Putin and the EU are in competition to screw America?
    Yes and they are not the only power hungry a holes that wants to rule the world and take over America.
    Neither Trump or Hillary understand real Americanism presented here
    overviewofamerica.com
    Hillary would not be for it even if she did understand American Patriotism, federalism and the superiority of proper Anglo/American common law.
    Trump might but it is reasonable to have doubts he would.

    What the same Obama who along with my two Tennessee RINO Senators Corker and Alexander gave in to Russia on nukes and a Obama who told a Russian president there would be more deals to follow after the 2014 election?
    Obama whos mom and dad meet in Russian studies class in the early 1960s and who’s white grand dad made a soviet agent ( Frank Davis) the mentor of Obama?

  • terry1956

    Trump is not a racist and while mentored by Soviet agents Obama is not a Marxist although he is a power hungry globalist more like the Fabians willing to accept Marxism or Fascism or pretty much anything that will rule the world with him in a top post or the top post.
    I suspect Obama is looking to be the next head of the UN who had as the first head a Soviet agent in the US State department Alger Hess but the multi national corporate fascist the International Chamber of Commerce which the US national chamber is a key member had a lot to do with the beginning of the UN and still does since it was the first NGO advisor to the UN.
    A Marxist and soviet union friendly International Union group was the second.
    Later another international union group not favored by Russia became also an NGO advisor.
    Later a international group of liberal churches did,
    Then a group of Roman Catholic Churches joined as a UN top NGO advisor.
    What really is a surprise is in the 1970s a group of Seven Day Adventist Charites became one, surprising because traditionally and to this day most at least American SDA members are very opposed to a world government but that was about the time a general conference leader gave the ok for SDA hospitals to kill babies through elective abortions, the big one in California the worst but many SDA hospitals to this day refuse to murder babies.

    While IKE was right in warning about the serious dangers of the military industrial complex far to many over look his other warnings in his farewell talk which Trump should listen to and take to heart so he does not end up being like Putin or the strong man who Hayek warned us about in Chapter 10 of his book the Road To Serfdom, chapter 10 being why the worst gets on top.
    Trump also needs to read another book by Hayek called Fatal Conceit another book about the folly’s of central planning.
    I also recommend he actually read the US Constitution and the founding document of the USA the Declaration of Independence.
    Also the Federalist papers as well as the anti federalist papers.
    Also Lysander Spooner’s 1852 book ” Essay on Trial By Jury” which can be found here
    lysanderspooner.org
    The Constitution Party and the Libertarian Party actually are the only two of the top 5 parties in the US that has correctly the jury veto in their platform but of course of the 5 those two parties comes the closest to founder’s intent going by the 2012 platforms with the GOP platform a very very distant third place and the current Trump website points on issue not much better than the 2012 GOP platform.

    A nation wide conceal carry permit is a very bad and unconstitutional idea just as the federal government requirement to register hand gun buys from gun stores and the big tax on fully autos.
    Get the federal government out of internal gun control and encourage states to eliminate requirements to get a permit to conceal or open carry.
    Jews for the preservation of firearm ownership gets it right far more than the NRA.
    Trump should join

    Great information terry cheers, may I say this, marxisum, communism, Socialisum, fascism, dictatorships are all under the same umbrella, government tyranny over it,s citizens. Obama is a Marxist, there is plenty of evidence that points to it including the 12 trillion under his presidency. Socialized medicine that is getting ready to collapse. Turns his back on our only friend in the Middle East. While embracing a tyrant dictator in Cuba.

    The last time DOD added red ink to the federal budget was in the late 1940s so the debt should have been paid in full by 1980.
    Pat Buchanan gets it right that the US should be superior in military power above all others on land, sea and air plus I add space but the fact is Obama has weaken DOD and the main part of the defense force of the US started to come apart over 110 years ago when congress passed the Dick act vastly undermining the state militias which the National Guard although a good idea is in no way, shape or form a replacement for.
    DOD, customs and immigration is about the only reason we need the federal government and its best the debt and other valid obligations be passed to the states and if done next year would make a balance federal budget of around 800 billion dollars knocking out in 2017 alone over 3 trillion in federal spending.
    Taxes on foreign transactions ( mostly import taxes) could pay for much of it, over time all of it which would be just and fair because foreigners are the main reason we need DOD and ICE plus since it is Americans risking their life in either then when possible taxes on foreign transactions should pay for all the federal budget.
    Now likely we may actually need to spend more on DOD, maybe as much as 50% extra, maybe more.

    Trump is a,card,carrying member of the NRA, I agree, what part of the rite to bear arms doesn,t the progressive loon not get? You really think the progressive Marxist are gonna allow unfettered access to arms? That,s like the progressive insider Cruz getting rid of the IRS. Never gonna happen. Since having unconstitutional laws in place for permits exists, I can see having a “universal” conceal carry as a safety net from a tyrannical government led by the progressive Marxist trying to steal the right, then enslave it,s people

  • terry1956

    Good points.
    While I think the John Birch Society often go to far out on the conspiracy theories I think they often come out with some good works one of them is their
    Americanism video here
    overviewofamerica.com
    Typically most people talk of the right/ left political/ legal spectrum as some sort of distortion on the old French Assembly which was a strange mix anyway but the distortion puts communist on the far left with fascist and Nazis on the far right with ” moderates” in the center.
    Even using the older terms of Europe of conservative and liberal makes no sense because a British conservative was and still is a Tory and the Liberal Party is not much better than the Labor Party, today in the UK UKIP is more like the old Whig party of Burke.
    Anyway in the above video the JBS puts proper Constitutional Americanism right in the middle with the socialist, fascist, corportist, dicatorships, theocracy on the far left and anarchy on the far right which of course can no exist for long anyway.
    Usually those on the far left the totalitarians encourage the anarchist and chaos so they can step in to create order.

  • terry1956

    The progressives can’t stop it, national permits just makes it easier for the Marxist to take our guns although then of course they will not even come close to getting them all from otherwise law abiding citizens.
    Cruz got it right on the need to eliminate the IRS that is a must but his plan was not a good one nor is Trump’s plan a good one.
    He had the start of good idea with a flat rate import tax of around 20%( an American price plus20% import tax is better) but it appears he has drop that in favor of keeping federal control over taxation of individual US citizen income tax.
    Imports of goods and services is around 2.8 trillion dollars and the US base gross income of foreigners should be at least another 600 billion with the total being 3.4 trillion and 20% of that is 680 billion which is a bit more or less what our defense budget is.
    2013 revenue from the individual federal income tax was a bit over 1.316 trillion so 680 billion would be more than half that.
    IRS website shows that the individual federal income tax base in 2013 after adjustments, credits and deductions was under 6.4 trillion dollars so with no change in the exemptions, credits and deductions a flat rate of 21% should have brought in the same amount of revenue and maybe more but the lowest rate is 10% which still could be with a 20% import tax if we are to keep the individual federal income tax on US citizens which would be stupid to do even with a flat 10% rate.
    It is best to encourage the states to collect all the internal federal taxes with a federal head tax charged to everyone living in the US but give the state a big discount based on the gross income of the state if the state pays the federal government using state or local tax revenue.
    Here in Tennessee I think the local option would be better because state and county government charges could be passed along to the local government based on the gross income of the local district.
    In 2014 Gross National Income was a bit over 18.1 trillion dollars so even if we had actually raised all of the just under 3.022 trillion in federal revenue from a flat rate on GNI collected by the states the rate would have been 17% but we don’t need the federal government to do near as much as what we it does and its best to pass the federal debt payment and other valid federal obligations such those owed to those who paid 10 or more years of FICA to the state government so the 1,316 trillion the individual income tax would be even to balance the federal budget while the federal government still kept its obligation to federal employees and vets ( instead of passing those to the states).
    So the rate on the GNI would just need to be under 7.3% even if import taxes brought in no revenue.
    If import taxes brought in half the federal revenue of 1.316 trillion then the GNI rate would just need to be under 3.7%.

    Like a Russian military defector said under the Soviet Union the two main enemies were the US and China and today under the current Russian government the two main enemies of Russia is the US and China.
    China today also thinks its two main enemies are the US and Russia.
    A lot of ignorant or foolish people talk about the cold war being over but no one told the Russian government or the Chinese Communist Party.
    As before ” the end of the cold war” today China calls for Russia to join with them in a fight against the US, China has did the same with the government of Pakistan, Afghanistan and even Mexico with the governments of each making agreeable actions with China.
    Like Romney said Russia is our largest enemy but China is the second largest.

    The IRS is the gestopo collection wing of the democratic Marxist party u.s.a. Who in their right mind would’ t want the IRS abolished? Christ Jesus, will get rid of it, this I can tell you. Ted could never get that done, nor would he. Trumps not calling for national permits as I understand it, just the right to carry from state to state without persecution. Ted kept lying about trumps stand on the 2nd amendment. Obviously every American has the rite to carry, espiecally in the culture were in now. It seems the permit protects you against law enforcement seizure, while giving the government information on it’s owner & who has one. I don,t want the government making dictates, and I don,t want to be harrassed by the cops, or put in jail should I have one on my person.

    But it would be just as bad if the federal government did directly what the Federal Reserve does, the states should not have a bank either and Hayek was right it is best to end the monopoly on issuing currency although I think the standard to judge the value of the competiting currencies should be gold since on average it has been the most stable commodity for over 2,000 years. With productivity increases the value of currency should increase with the prices of consumer goods and services increasing while incomes go up.

  • terry1956

    Right to carry from state to state would be fine that could be fixed by congress using their 14th amendment enforcement legislation authority.
    The 14th was ratified in 1868 but Congress did not get serious about passing enforcement legislation until 1964 96 years later then like Goldwater said in 1964 they got it about half wrong thus making the entire act unconstitutional.
    Goldwater had long before supported proper civil rights acts back when the N word was a common word used by LBJ.

    The Russian government is wanting what the Chinese government wants, what the Soviets wanted, what Mao wanted, what the EU leadership wants, what the UN wants, what the Trots want, what the Moslem Brotherhood wants, what the Shia leaders of Iran wants, what Obama wants, what Hillary wants, what the top leaders and many of the members of congress in both parties want and what the International Chamber of Commerce wants which is to rule the world and make feet voting impossible but they are in competition for that rule though some times most of them work together and with other a hole groups wanting to rule the world.
    Yes Congress today is a force by itself even more so than in 1890 when Mark Twain said it was America’s only native criminal class.
    similar to the Chinese Communist Party of today the US Congress has no ideology, no principles, no noble values, it can run a president and federal judges out of office when it wants to, the president and federal judges knows this.
    It can take over a corporation in the US and throw corporate officials in prison when it wants to and corporate officials know that which is why when a member of congress tells a corporate official they are having a wine tasting the official knows they better go or send someone and write a big check or if the member says something about a spouse, child, grandchild, other family member, friend or associate wanting something the corporate official had better find a way to see that the person gets the want.
    Its not just for profit corporate officials that knows, its various non profits as well.

    The maxist on the left like al gore Sr, started the kkk. People of color are deaf to it. LBJ,s great society. ” we,ll have the (n-word)s voting democrat the next fifty years with this free social welfare.” All ones needs do is look to Detroit. 70 years under the democrate Marxist control. The height of American industry, now is like a ghost town, with lead in it’s drinking water, and controlled by the progressive Marxisum. The same progressive that cry all kinds of crimes against nature, collect 125billion a year as annual budget, for 50 years now. And there’s lead in the water, no jobs, and looks like a war zone under the control of progressivism. Any troll libtard want to chime in?

    Terry, I’m with you on the congress part, only Congress shall make law, but were way past that aren’t we bud? You got a Marxist militant bastard named barrack Hussian Obama using executive fiat, thereby obstructing congress. Is this not treasonous? Supreme Court judges, are to be fair& impartial, they are to interrupt the law as it was written, and that’s it. The Supreme Court unconstitutional ” interprets ” the law, and legislates Thur politically, what the Marxist can,t get thru the will of the people, they get thru their judicial oligarchy.
