More About Russia and Less About Flynn? The leak has narrowed Trump’s options for dealing with Putin

Putin

Flynn certainly had a number of other discussions with foreign-intelligence officers before the Trump inaugural, including those of Israel and most likely Britain, without any scandal being imputed. The difference is clearly the involvement of Russia… This was a leak that had specific policy implications. By Philip Giraldi The story on the resignation of National Security […]

Elliott Abrams and Gina Haspel – ghastly choices

ABRAMS

The most ghastly candidate who has almost made it through the nomination screening process, in this case to become number two at the Department of State, is Elliot Abrams. Another almost as bad, Gina Haspel, succeeded and is now CIA Deputy Director….  By Philip Giraldi We live in a political environment where nothing is any longer real. […]

The Neocon Lament: Nobody wants them in Trump’s Washington

Robert-Kagan-and-his-wife-Victoria-Nuland-1024x462-600x270

It is a pleasure to watch the think tanks and the Israel-first, pro-war neocons begin thinking of their own political demise. It is intriguing to speculate that Trump with his populist message might just take it all one step farther and shut the door on the K Street lobbyists and other special interests, which have […]

Washington Invented Hacking and Interfering in Elections: Weaponized hacking all began with Stuxnet

Obama.clapper.defense

I am still waiting to see the actual evidence for the Russian direct involvement and have to suspect that there is little to show, or possibly even nothing…. One can reasonably argue that Washington started the practice of cyber-warfare and has been a long-time practitioner of both regime change and election tampering in its relationship with […]

No Smoking Gun on Russia Hack

james-clapper-Obama

The report, like the “Grizzly Steppe” effort, includes an unusual disclaimer, noting in an appendix on “Estimative Language” that “Judgments are not intended to imply that we have proof that shows something to be a fact.” By Philip Giraldi The eagerly awaited report on the alleged Russian influence operation and hack linked to the recent […]

America or Israel? Quislings in Congress and the Media need to decide which comes first

KrautDershBolt

There is scant attention paid by any of the Israel boosters for actual American interests … American values and needs are invisible because they are of no interest to John Bolton and his fellow knee jerkers at AEI, the Hudson Institute, the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs […]

Welcome to Greater Israel! The tail will be wagging the dog under Donald Trump

Make-Israel-Great-600x400

The problem with Israel and its friends is that they are never satisfied and never leave the rest of us Americans alone, pushing constantly at what is essentially an open door. They have treated the United States like a doormat, spying on us more than any ostensibly friendly nation while pocketing our $38 billion donation […]

AtlanticCouncilAlbrightHadley

Atlantic Council’s Middle East Strategy Task Force report claims to be a new strategic vision for the Middle East that will “change the political trajectory of the region”– calls for more military intervention… By Philip Giraldi The Establishment and Realist foreign policy communities in the United States often seem separated by language which leads them to talk […]

Did Russia Elect Trump? Foreign espionage is routine: Careless use of unsecure email shouldn’t be

clinton_trump_204f18b7fc79fa58

Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham are exploiting the allegations to block any possible initiatives by Trump to improve ties with Moscow, which might have serious consequences down the road… By Philip Giraldi On Friday, the Washington Post reported that the CIA has concluded that Russia acted to aid Donald Trump in winning the election. […]

Fake News Versus No News: How Russia is pilloried while real news about Israel goes unreported

ADL AIPAC JFED WIES

…The Anti-Semitism bill makes Jews and Jewish interests a legally protected class, immune from any criticism. “Free speech” means in practice that you can burn an American flag, sell pornography, attack Christianity in the vilest terms or castigate the government in Washington all you want but criticizing Israel is off limits if you want to […]
