International Coalition to Defeat Democrats and Hillary in 2016

by Oui Mon Jul 9th, 2018 at 01:10:27 AM EST

During the past two years, I have written many diaries on all topics listed below. There was an overwhelming opposition to a liberal, progressive agenda. The Conservatives have built their alliance over decades from the 1964 loss of Barry Goldwater, the Reagan years and the "dreadful" Clinton years. In the election campaign of 2016 all those forces came together with all their might with a Trump presidency as a result. Special attention for Netanyahu and Israel. Their collusion remains for some in the shadow, for me it's as clear as blue skies: Netanyahu got his revenge on the Obama administration and the JCPOA deal with Iran. You will hear more about the "former" Mossad agents in the Black Cube intelligence enterprise. All attention of the Trump team has been to reward Israel for its support in getting him elected. Busy job for Jared Kushner and his corrupt financial backers with Israeli citizenship.

More below the fold ...

Conservatives across the Atlantic
GOP and Tea Party
Republicans - Big Money and De-regulation

Atlantic Council project "Russia a pariah state"
Russian oligarchs in UK and US - Khodorkovsky
Also targeted was George Soros Foundation in Hungary
Putin targeted George Soros for his complicity in regime change Ukraine
Putin targeted Hillary Clinton for Libya and Syria regime change
Putin targeted the Democrats for NATO expansion 2008-2016
Putin targeted Obama for harsh sanctions when diplomacy should have been used
Putin entered the Syrian conflict in Sept. 2015
Putin loosened Erdogan's Turkey out of the Syrian regime change coalition
Erdogan angered by the coup attempt loosened ties with NATO

A coalition of British intelligence MI6 and the CIA leadership was deeply involved in a concerted disinformation war as soon as the result of Election 2016 became known. The era of MKULTRA never ended, it morphed into the modern age of the digital revolution. Blame Russia - Putin Did It!

Propaganda peddlers ...

A Dutch idiom explains: "All roads lead to Rome." In the Election 2016 propaganda war, all signs/allegations point to the Kremlin, Moscow. Just not true, yes Putin was involved but take a look at all the players in the coalition.

It's quite clear president Obama and Hillary Clinton overplayed their hand on foreign policy in the first term. Libya, Syria and Ukraine were all miscalculations that came to haunt the Democrats in 2016. A perfect storm.

These observations could suit well as blog ethics for a decent debate in a community ...

Be All Your Selves: Joss Whedon's 2013 Wesleyan Commencement Address on Embracing Our Inner Contradictions

"It is a sign of great inner insecurity to be hostile to the unfamiliar," Anaïs Nin observed. "In disputes upon moral or scientific points, ever let your aim be to come at truth, not to conquer your opponent," Martine advised in his famous 1866 do's and don'ts of conversation, "so you never shall be at a loss in losing the argument, and gaining a new discovery." And yet, Whedon argues, ours is a culture Simone de Beauvoir would wince at, one staggeringly uncomfortable with ambiguity and fixated on righteous reductionism -- a toxic tendency where change is most critical and urgent:

       [Our culture] is not long on contradiction or ambiguity. ... It likes things to be simple, it likes things to be pigeonholed--good or bad, black or white, blue or red. And we're not that. We're more interesting than that. And the way that we go into the world understanding is to have these contradictions in ourselves and see them in other people and not judge them for it. To know that, in a world where debate has kind of fallen away and given way to shouting and bullying, that the best thing is not just the idea of honest debate, the best thing is losing the debate, because it means that you learn something and you changed your position. The only way really to understand your position and its worth is to understand the opposite.

        That doesn't mean the crazy guy on the radio who is spewing hate, it means the decent human truths of all the people who feel the need to listen to that guy. You are connected to those people. They're connected to him. You can't get away from it. This connection is part of contradiction. It is the tension I was talking about. This tension isn't about two opposite points, it's about the line in between them, and it's being stretched by them. We need to acknowledge and honor that tension, and the connection that that tension is a part of. Our connection not just to the people we love, but to everybody, including people we can't stand and wish weren't around. The connection we have is part of what defines us on such a basic level.  

Whedon '87 Delivers 181st Commencement Address (May2013)

OK, times do change ... what's culture and the effects of social media in a digital age. Have we mostly become robots being spoon fed bs from all directions. Chained to our iPhones, the Internet of Things and being programmed by Hollywood and MSM? Add Trump into the mix and IC disinformation campaign ... what lies in the future of the human race?

I came across this theme searching for an image of Angela Merkel and Horst Seehofer, speaking asylum and immigration policy with two voices, Germany on a divergence in CSU and CDU politics. Another provocation from Seehofer, presenting HIS Master Plan, predated to the coalition talks of recent compromise with the SPD ...

    Perhaps most provocatively, Seehofer's plan still contained the term "transit centers," which the SPD had vetoed in favor of "transit procedures," and which has already been ditched by the government he represents. Still, the interior minister refused to admit it was a provocation - at least not in so many words. "It is not a provocation, but if you like, you could also see it that way," he told the Bild newspaper elliptically.
