Putin-Trump Summit Interpreted

So, I'll trade you my 12 Russians for your one Mr Browder and his $400 Million he owes us


It seems the News Media was so interested in attacking Mr Trump that they missed this rather shocking portion of the conversation between Mr Putin and Mr Trump.


Here is the extract quoted from Mr Putin speaking after he offered to let the US have access to the 12 indicted Russians; in return, he asked for this:

''Then we would expect that the Americans would reciprocate and that they would question officials including the officers of law enforcement and intelligence services of the United States, whom we believe have something to do with illegal actions on the territory of Russia. 

"And we have to request the presence of our law enforcement. 

"For instance, we can bring up Mr. Browder in this particular case. 


Business associates of Mr. Browder have earned over one and a half billion dollars in Russia. They never paid any taxes, neither in Russia nor in the United States and yet the money escaped the country, they were transferred to the United States. 

They sent a huge amount of money - $400 million - as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton. Well, that's their personal case, it might have been legal, the contribution itself, but the way the money was earned was illegal. 

So we have a solid reason to believe that some intelligence officers accompanied and guided these transactions. So we have an interest of questioning them. 

That could be a first step and we can also extend it. Options abound. And they all can be found in an appropriate legal framework."

Editorial Notes:


Regarding the accusations of Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential Election, Trump provided the carefully worded, non-committal response to entice the Media to once again make fools of themselves:

"I accept our intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election took place. Could be other people also. A lot of people out there    ..  
[In another context, a Professor "ACCEPTS" his students' term papers; but, he must grade them; in this case professional Intelligence officers beyond the reach of Mr Brennan and Mr Clapper regard the IC conclusion as so much politicized nonsense, and encourage Mr Trump to give the IC conclusion (term paper) an "F", and discard it.]

["... Other people" could possibly include Bangladesh or Luxembourg].

Trump added, 
“There was no collusion at all” 
 [thus dismissing the accusation that his campaign coordinated with Moscow in 2016] 

Trump advised that he meant to say he didn’t have any reason to doubt Russia interfered in the election:

“The sentence should have been, 
‘I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia.’ 
 “So you can put that in, and I think that probably clarifies things pretty good by itself.” 

 In essence, Trump has said: 
 "I accepted the IC's paperwork [but not their conclusion] on their 'claim' that Russia meddled, but, there was no collusion. But, it could have been Russia [or, Bangladesh, or China]" 

 Well, what Trump said was clear as mud, but it covered the ground, and it fully had as much depth and substance as his reference a while back to "cofefe".

"Russian general prosecutor’s office wants to interview US special agents Hyman, Schwarzman and Angert, who were investigating Natalia Veselnitskaya’s Russian client for money laundering"]

[The Magnitsky Act:
Browder lobbied Congress to pass the Magnitsky Act over the Russian arrest of his accountant accused of fraud and money laundering.  Browder's lobbying persuaded Congress to create this legislation to punish Russian human rights violators and it was signed into law in 2012 by President Obama. The following year, Browder was tried in absentia in Russia for tax fraud and was convicted and sentenced to nine years in prison]

Interestingly, the linkage in this case seems to tie into the Clinton Foundation, which seems to be a common receptacle for a great deal of foreign "donations" while she was Secretary of State.

USSA - Almost!



The following is an interview by G. Edward Griffin, an ultra-Conservative
 and researcher of issues which have undermined the US.  His credibility 
has been questioned on a number of topics he has covered, and, 
oddly enough, in retrospect over recent decades and revelations 
by a number of very credible sources, Mr Griffin has been 
spot-on in his analyses in virtually every topic he's covered.

In this interview in 1984, he asks Yuri Bezmenov, a former 
KGB propagandist, to explain the Soviet methodology for 
subverting the US population and conversion to Communism.  
At the time of this interview, the Soviet Union was 
still strong and had not shown any indiction that it would 
collapse six years later, following President Reagan's 
encouragement of Soviet Premier Gorbachev to 
shut down the USSR war machine, and 
essentially defect to the West.

Little did he know then that The Establishment
would inflict a series of Presidents from
GHW Bush, to Clinton, to W, to Obama
on the US to complete the transformation
of the US to a Socialist/Communist society.


ED GRIFFIN: 

Well, you spoke before about "ideological subversion" and that's a phrase that I'm afraid some Americans don't understand. 
When the Soviets use the phrase "ideological subversion" what do they mean by it? 



YURI BEZMENOV: 
 Ideological subversion is the process which is legitimate and open. You can see it with your own eyes.... It has nothing to do with espionage.
Yuri Bezmenov - KGB
I know that intelligence gathering looks more romantic.... That's probably why your Hollywood producers are so crazy about James Bond types of films. 
But in reality the main emphasis of the KGB is NOT in the area of intelligence at all. According to my opinion, and the opinions of many defectors of my caliber, only about 15% of time, money, and manpower is spent on espionage as such.
The other 85% is a slow process which we call either ideological subversion, active measures, or psychological warfare
What it basically means is: 
to change the perception of reality of every American that despite of the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country. 
It's a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages
The first one being "demoralization". It takes from 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years required to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy exposed to the ideology of [their] enemy. 
In other words, Marxism-Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least three generations of American students without being challenged or counterbalanced by the basic values of Americanism; American patriotism....
The result? 
The result you can see ... the people who graduated in the 1960's, dropouts or half-baked intellectuals, are now occupying the positions of power in the government, civil service, business, mass media, and educational systems. You are stuck with them. You can't get through to them. They are contaminated. 
They are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern [e.g., Pavlov]. You cannot change their mind even if you expose them to authentic information. Even if you prove that white is white and black is black, you still can not change the basic perception and the logic of behavior.
In other words, for these people the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible. To rid society of these people you need another 15 or 20 years to educate a new generation of patriotically minded and common sense people who would be acting in favor and in the interests of United States society.
ED: And yet these people who have been programmed and as you say are in place and who are favorable to an opening with the Soviet concept - these are the very people who would be marked for extermination in this country?
YURI: Most of them, yes. Simply because the psychological shock when they will see in the future what the beautiful society of EQUALITY and social justice means in practice, obviously they will revolt. 
They will be very unhappy and frustrated people, and the Marxist-Leninist regime does not tolerate these people. Obviously they will join the ranks of dissenters; dissidents. Unlike the present United States, there will be no place for dissent in future Marxist-Leninist America
Now, you can get popular like Daniel Ellsburg and filthy rich like Jane Fonda for being a dissident and for criticizing your Pentagon. In the future these people will simply be squashed like cockroaches for criticizing the government. Nobody is going to pay them nothing for their beautiful and noble ideas of EQUALITY
This they don't understand and it will be the greatest shock for them, of course.
The demoralization process in the United States is basically completed already for the last 25 years. Actually, it's over fulfilled because demoralization now reaches such areas where not even Comrade Andropov and all his experts would even dream of such tremendous success. 
Most of it is done by Americans to Americans thanks to lack of moral standards. As I mentioned before, exposure to true information does not matter anymore. A person who was demoralized is unable to assess true information. The facts tell nothing to him, even if I shower him with information, with authentic proof, with documents and pictures. ...he will refuse to believe it.... That's the tragedy of the situation of demoralization.
The next stage is destabilization.... It only takes two to five years to destabilize a nation. 
This time what matters is essentials; economy, foreign relations, [and] defense systems. And you can see it quite clearly that in some... sensitive areas such as defense and [the] economy, the influence of Marxist-Leninist ideas in the United States is absolutely fantastic
I could never believe it 14 years ago when I landed in this part of the world that the process will go that fast.
Most of the American politicians, media, and educational system train another generation of people who think they are living at the peacetime. False!  The United States is in a state of war; undeclared, total war against the basic principles and foundations of this system. And the initiator of this war is not Comrade Andropov of course - it's the system. 
However, ridiculous it may sound, it is the world Communist system, or the world Communist conspiracy. Whether I scare some people or not, I don't give a hoot. If you're not scared by now, nothing can scare you.
ED: Okay, so what do we do? What is your recommendation to the American people?

YURI: Well, the immediate thing that comes to mind is, of course, there must be a very strong national effort to educate people in the spirit of REAL patriotism, number one. 
Number two, to explain to them the real danger of a socialist, communist, welfare state, Big Brother government.... The moment at least part of the United States population is convinced that the danger is real, they have to FORCE their government... to stop aiding Communism. 
-----------------------------------------
EDITORIAL NOTE:
We have added links to such terms as KGB and Soviet, Big Brother as well as the names of world leaders such as Reagan, Andropov, and Gorbachev simply because the majority of young people who read this attended our depleted education system and have no recollection or awareness of the historical significance of these key, historical figures.  

This may surprise you, but ask the average 40-something [or younger] Liberal about any of these references, and you'll likely get a blank stare in response.

References to George Orwell and his predictive novel: 1984, will receive the refrain that it is about President Trump -- who has succeeded in derailing the Obama Administration goal of implementing 1984,

Money Laundering: Obama-Style



Obama's $1.5 Billion Scam
Click here for related story:
[NYT 09012011 - Matthew Wald]

Some of you may recall the Solyndra debacle, in which Obama declared he was promoting private enterprise, and US manufactured Solar Panels, to create jobs.  He invested $527 Million in direct loans from the Federal Financing Bank under the 2009 Stimulus Package to Solyndra -- by-passing the normal scrutiny by the Treasury Department auditors;  private investors, thinking this was a solid, federally-backed program, invested another $1 Billion.   After all, President Bush had blessed it in 2006, so what could possibly go wrong!

Obama visited the company in 2010, proclaiming it was "... leading the way toward a brighter and more prosperous future" and had hired 1,100 workers.  Below the radar, though, the OMB watchdogs noted that Obama had "... bypassed key taxpayer protections in a rush to approve the funds."

As federal auditors and investors watched helplessly, Solyndra executives were funneling the cash to offshore banks through bogus invoices to "partner companies" which existed solely to create invoices for future auditor review.

By 2011, the company executives had safely transferred virtually all the cash to a variety of offshore banks; they decried the Chinese competition as underpriced, and thus Solyndra was declaring bankruptcy and firing its 1,100 workers.

A flurry of "investigations" followed, but, with Tim Geithner running the Treasury Department, and Eric Holder at the Department of Justice,  and Bob Mueller heading the FBI, not much progress was made in following up with investigations, much less prosecutions.

So, you say, why reprise this scandal!
The depths of that corruption have already been plumbed, and there's not much to be done about it now except to wring our hands and say, "thank God Obama is out of office!"

But, wait, there's more!

Well, no one ever really created an audit trail on that $1.57 Billion.
But, we do know that Obama entered office with a net worth of less than $250,000, and left with an estimated net worth of several billion.  We are told that he was a frugal man and saved his money, and invested wisely.

So, where did it all go?

It seems the Solyndra cash, along with other billions of dollars from the stimulus packages were passed through shell companies to a variety of off-shore banks in the Caribbean, China, and elsewhere in the Pacific. [Other monies, directly from the NY Fed were transferred to European and Indonesian banks in 2008 by Tim Geithner - then President of the NY Fed].

And, what was done with all that cash?
We're slowly unraveling that as reports emanate from Trump's Treasury Department.

A lifestyle Obama has become accustomed to
at our expense
As luck would have it, Obama's CIA was managing Intelligence/ Interrogation operations in a remote part of Thailand, and, while visiting, Obama decided he needed a hideaway.

The house, on 400 acres, is in the Northeast section of Thailand, near Ubon Ratchatani, a former US air base during the Vietnam War.  AID had modernized the infrastructure of the area, and it showed growth promise.

So, Solyndra, using its ill-gotten gains, bought a comfortable house, accessible to a semi-private airport, with other attributes we'll discuss below, to accommodate Obama's international aspirations.

This is a swell spot to vacation, and to manage his Shadow Government if things get sticky elsewhere.  During his time in office, Obama visited Thailand six times, and in 2017, visited there another four times.  It apparently appeals to him.

But, aside from the obvious comfort levels, what else would take Obama to this remote part of the world!

As we've noted frequently in the past, there's more to Obama than meets the eye.

Before entering US politics, he was reared in an Indonesian Muslim environment, and listed as a Muslim student. When he came to the US with his mother, he was tutored by his Communist "father", Frank Marshall Davis who inculcated young Barack with Communist doctrine.  Once in the US, it seems that Obama's employer, the Ford Foundation, may have prepped him for the US political system, greasing the skids for a Blitzkrieg rise to the Oval Office.
Essentially, Obama is a double edged sword -- as a Communist AND an Islamic radical.

So, what, you might wonder; we already knew most of that history.

If you take his background, and his aborted attempts to create a Socialist/Communist state in America, he is likely on the same path on a global basis.  He has announced he would like to lead the United Nations [probably not a certainty at this point], but, what better background to start tweaking developing countries.  He attempted to create a totalitarian Communist state in the US, populated with Muslim Brotherhood operatives, Iranians, and Communists.  He and Hillary did their best to undermine and overthrow the governments in a number of countries, and was finally outed as a result of Hillary's Benghazi fiasco.

You may recall that Thailand has been beset by chronic Communist protests throughout the past decade, with a highly critical world Press condemning the Thai Military Government for its aggressive posture against dissidents.

Reportedly, a recent raid on the compound [quickly vacated] produced encrypted laptops,  $200 Million in gold bullion, and dozens of crates of Chinese weapons and explosives.

[The Thai government reportedly confiscated the estate under the provisions of the ASEAN Declaration to Joint Action on Counter Terrorism.]


That is not an aberration in either case, since the Communists have tried to overthrow the Thai Government since the mid-1950s.

Thailand was strengthened as a US ally during the Vietnam War, all the time fighting a Chinese  Communist insurgency supplied via Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos in the Northeast, and a Muslim insurgency at the border with Malaysia.

So, here, we get a two-fer.

Obama's Mansion is strategically positioned
The insurgency in NE Thailand was headquartered right across the Cambodian border from Sisaket during the Vietnam War, while supplies and cadre crossed the river from Laos to operate near Ubon and Nakhon Phanom [NKP][another US air base].

It was a viable and dynamic insurgent movement, with cadre recruited locally and trained in China, from which they would return to the region to recruit among the local villagers.

Mr Obama's Mansion is/was perfectly located to coordinate future insurgent paramilitary operations in this region already prepped for a renewed political offensive.  While in US office as POTUS, he appointed Glyn Davies as his Ambassador, who immediately upon arriving, began supporting dissidents and supporting enemies of the Thai state.  This was in tune with the unwelcome UN involvement in Thailand which drew extreme criticism.
[and you'll recall how well UN involvement in the internal affairs of South African has worked out.]

At the conclusion of the Vietnam War, a few stray bombs released from US F4s found their way across the Cambodian border, setting off more than 300 secondary explosions, disintegrating soldiers, food stores, and weapon/ammunition stocks -- and essentially ending the insurgency.

What we learned later was that Henry Kissinger, in 1972, assured China that the US had no further interest in the region and would not interfere in a Chinese Communist incursion.  At the same time, Henry shut down all existing and clandestine Intelligence networks, some of which dated back to World-War-2 OSS nets.  Without those established nets, it will be difficult to monitor the flow of political activists and insurgent cadre and combatants as they flow in from China to be guided by Obama -- and Soros.

To tie all this information together,  Solyndra used the cash it siphoned from the US federal loans and private investors to acquire a number of real estate properties scattered about in Southeast Asia, valued at over $800 million.  Given Trump's interest in these matters, we expect him to encourage other Southeast Asian countries to employ the ASEAN Declaration to Joint Action on Counter Terrorism.
