Special Counsel Mueller Is Just Another Fascist

The western media outlets announce Trumps approval rating yo be around 41%, and Putin to be rated at (perhaps) 48% currently. So what is so bad about Putin?

Washington's Blog -- Mueller's History of Cover-Ups -- April 8, 2018 by Kevin Ryan
 https://washingtonsblog.com/2018/04/muellers-history-of-cover-ups.html

[....]
What some people don't know about Mueller is that he has a long history of leading government investigations that were diversions or cover-ups. These include the investigation into the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, the investigation into the terrorist financing Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), and the FBI investigations into the crimes of September 11th, 2001. Today the public is beginning to realize that Mueller's investigation into Russian collusion with the Trump campaign is a similar diversion.

[....]
Mueller was then appointed as chief investigator of the 1988 bombing of Pan Am 103 in Scotland. The account Mueller produced was a flimsy story that accused a Libyan named Megrahi of coordinating placement of a suitcase bomb that allegedly traveled unaccompanied through several airports to find its way to the doomed flight. Despite Mueller's persistent defense of this unbelievable tale, Megrahi was released from prison in 2009 and died three years later in Libya.

Everybody knows that the "Russian election influence" is based on the notion that American's weak minds must be carefully protected. Or did they hack the cheap hackable voting machines I have been complaining about for well over a decade?

Russia News Now -- Much Ado About Putin's Decline Ratings but He Remains Substantially More Popular Than Western Leaders -- Sept., 2018
 https://www.therussophile.org/much-ado-about-putins-decline-ratings-but-he-remains-substantially-more-popular-than-western-leaders.html/

Much has been made in Russian and Western media about Russian President Vladimir Putin's declining approval ratings. However, despite the major ratings decline, Putin's approval rating remains far above any Western leader. More importantly, his rating remains higher than it has been in long periods of is rule. In other words, the fall in Putin's rating marks a return from normal after excessively and inordinately high ratings from late 2014 until early 2018.
\~~~~~~~~~~

The anti-Putin campaign is obviously another CIA psyop. Putin is far more progressive than Hillary Clinton. And I do not play footsie with CIA rent-a-crowds.

"Putin is far more progressive than Hillary Clinton" 19.Nov.2018 17:57

Clyde

Of course he is. With his unwavering support of laws criminalizing homosexuality, rampant corruption and journalists who are critical of him ending up strangely murdered, he's a real progressive icon. I can see why you're such a big fan blues. I bet he even supports simple score voting when he is arranging for opposition party leaders to be arrested.

RE: Putin / Russia, it's just another failed regime. They spend less on military expenditures than China. Their military forces are a dilapidated wreck.

How in the **** did a bunch of Democrat Party members become just-as-convinced, as Republicans were in the McCarthy-1950s, that 'The Russians' are infiltrating America and about to Take It All Down? U.S. corporate mass media is in on it, as well.


Russia is a JOKE, laughingstock of the entire planet.

You buy / use / own *anything* Made In Russia? ( besides online **rn )

in comparison even Chinese made goods / technology haver slightly improved in quality (though much Chinese merch remains sub-standard), over the past couple decades.

Look at Russia's GDP compared to China and the U.S. (or even Japan).

Russia is a JOKE. a ****ing JOKE shop.

Putin is a JOKE, tinpot mafia boss of a laughingstock former superpower.

what the **** does *anyone* on planet Earth have to "fear" from Russia / anything of Russian origin?
( oh yes, we have to fear another Chernobyl and-or some of their nuclear weapons being poorly handled, firing off due to technical malfunction / crash et cetera. *THAT* i would be legitimately 'afraid' of. )


Anything else, Russia-Putin = Dr. Evil. Lol.

The Cancer Thinks It's The Body Politic

The Mueller Independent Counsel is like a Trumanite consulate within the resurgent Madisonian government spearheaded by Trump. Without Mueller's lingering presence, the Democrats (mantle-holders at the moment for the Deep State, along with some furtive Republican establishment support) would have no substantive speaking-role, outside of (are you ready?) Maxine Waters.

The Object of Mueller's investigation is not to go away. Mueller is the beachhead that invents incoming German artillery fire. The enemy is over the hill only because Mueller says he is. Culled from the same infernal cauldron as the War on Terror, Mueller emanates from nowhere and everywhere and is as durable as the capacity for human terror (i.e. inexhaustible). The perpetual motion machine from Lawfare Hell.

As Adam Hill points out, this in perpetuum feature accomplishes two simultaneous objectives. One, it permanently sub-optimizes Trump's Presidency and two, it permits Rosenstein to forever dish his favored response to Congressional questions: "I'm sorry I can't answer that question because of the ongoing nature of the investigation." Here's Hill:

... Rosenstein and others embarrassed by DOJ's actions may derive raison d'ętre, if not safety, from the never-ending nature of the investigation. And like Leonard Shelby's investigative file, the Russia investigation has become a puzzle that is designed to never be solved. Because to do so would end the "ongoing investigation" excuse that keeps the cause of DOJ's embarrassment under wraps.




Prepare For Disappointment From Mueller Investigation Findings

 http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2018/10/436755.shtml

The public, say defense lawyers working on the Russia probe and more than 15 former government officials with investigation experience spanning Watergate to the 2016 election case, shouldn't expect a comprehensive and presidency-wrecking account of Kremlin meddling and alleged obstruction of justice by Trump — not to mention an explanation of the myriad subplots that have bedeviled lawmakers, journalists and amateur Mueller sleuths.

Mueller's History of Cover-Ups

 http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2018/04/435730.shtml

Former FBI Director Robert Mueller has been in the news lately due to his inquiry into [supposed...] Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections. After a 12-year stint leading the Bureau, the longest ever since J. Edgar Hoover, Mueller is now seen by many as an honest man serving the interest of the American public. However, that perception cannot be defended once one knows about Mueller's past.

What some people don't know about Mueller is that he has a long history of leading government investigations that were diversions or cover-ups. These include the investigation into the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, the investigation into the terrorist financing Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), and the FBI investigations into the crimes of September 11th, 2001. Today the public is beginning to realize that Mueller's investigation into Russian collusion with the Trump campaign is a similar diversion.

<> Opposition party leaders are not arrested in Russia if they are not corrupt. You don't hear of Russian aphorisms such as "His Name Was Seth Rich."

<> Robert Mueller is and has been a well-known fascist rat who helped cover up the Sept.11 psy-op.

=/A bombshell memo will probably cause the end of the Mueller investigation into the Trump Administration and the so-called Russian collusion story.

Yes, of course, that is always the explanation you give when you lock up opposition leaders. That's how dictators stay in power, dummy.

Well, at least there aren't cameras everywhere spying on us everywhere... Oh wait... Even though we have a greater proportion of prisoners than anyplace else. And the cops beat the crap out of us all the time.

But no dictators, because we get to VOTE! Ha ha ha ha ha!!!

Putin was elected in a real election, not like our fake ones. And he even says gay people have human rights. And they don't have cameras everywhere in Russia.

But just keep telling us how "free" we are -- maybe someday we will really believe it -- but until then the beatings will continue.

what is so interesting, impactful, or even relevant about either Putin or the Russian regime?


Russia is an international joke. There is nothing post-Cold War from Russia which has contributed to global culture or technology.



Which of you two, has a Russian cell phone?

drive a Russian car?

ride a Russian bus?

fly in Russian-built airplanes?

have a Russian watch?

eat (actual) food or food products from Russia?

Oceania is at War with Fascism 20.Nov.2018 19:43

by C. J. Hopkins / November 5th, 2018

If you're a critic of global capitalism (sometimes referred to as "globalism"), I've got some good news and some bad news for you. The good news is, you're not a "peddler of Russian propaganda" anymore. The bad news is, you're an anti-Semite.

You're probably also a domestic terrorist, or an "emboldener" of domestic terrorism, or at least some sort of terrorism-apologist. And not good old-fashioned Islamic terrorism like we used to get during the War on Terror, because that ended in the Summer of 2016, right around the time Trump won the nomination. No, the brand of terrorism you are probably emboldening by criticizing global capitalism is anti-Semitic, fascist terrorism ... the most terroristic form of terrorism there is!

Up until recently, you might have just been going about your normal business, criticizing global capitalism, completely unaware of your anti-Semitic, white supremacist terrorist activities, but from now on there will be no denying them. Your hate thoughts are right there for everyone to read. Go back and check your Facebook posts and your Twitter feed. You'll see what I mean. All those times when you impulsively lashed out against the global capitalist ruling classes, or globalism, or Obama, or Clinton, or the Wall Street banks, or, God help you, George Soros ... well, you might as well have been tweeting blinking neon GIFs of dancing Swastikas or posting Adolf Hitler's speeches with little throbbing hearts and smiley-face emoticons.

See, according to the "Anti-Fascist Resistance" (i.e, the the Democratic Party, the "intelligence community," the corporate media, those Wall Street banks, the military industrial complex, and other components of the global capitalist empire that doesn't actually exist, except as a Nazi "conspiracy theory"), any references you might have made to "globalists," or "globalism," or the "corporate media," or "banks," or "Hollywood," or the "1 percent," or any other "elites," didn't really refer to what they referred to, but, in fact, were anti-Semitic "dog whistles." If you went so far as to literally mention or include an unflattering photo of Soros in any of your posts or tweets, then you weren't just "whistling" to your fascist dog friends, you were openly calling for a second Holocaust, or "inspiring" some anti-Semitic psycho to senselessly murder a bunch of people, as recently happened at that synagogue in Pittsburgh.

This newly rebranded "Anti-Fascist Resistance" (formerly known as the "Anti-Putin Resistance," that is, until pre-election polling convinced them that most Americans were not responding to their "Russiagate" propaganda) has been working more or less around the clock to badger the public into believing that this psycho was an official "lone wolf terrorist" (i.e., a "terrorist" who has no affiliation with any actual terrorist organization), and that "America is on the brink of fascism," and that Trump is "deploying the fascist playbook," and that attacking the media is "the first step toward fascism," and that Trump is a fascist because he isn't a fascist (or something ... I couldn't quite make sense of that one), and, basically, that everyone should be afraid of fascism! Like that scene in Orwell's 1984 when the Party abruptly switches official enemies in the middle of the Hate Week rally, the "Resistance" is counting on its loyal members to instantly forget the Russia hysteria they have been mindlessly parroting for almost two years, and start mindlessly parroting Fascism hysteria (as they mindlessly parroted the Terrorism hysteria throughout the Global War on Terror, until they switched to parroting the Russia hysteria after Trump got elected in 2016).

This recent rebranding of the neoliberal Resistance was a brilliant move, and is going quite well. It couldn't have come at a better time, what with the midterm elections about to take place. While liberals were ready to swallow any anti-Trump narrative the corporate media rammed down their throats from the moment Clinton lost, much of the slightly-more-left-leaning Left never bought the Russiagate story. So it's been tough for slimy beltway operatives like David Brock and other propagandists to unite "the Left" behind the Democratic Party, so they can put down this annoying "populist" insurgency, reinstall some Obama-like puppet, and get back to the business of globalism ... no, not worldwide Jewish domination, you Jew-obsessed, neo-Nazi freaks, but, rather, the consolidation of corporate control over what remains of society, the abrogation of national sovereignty, and the establishment of a smiley, happy, multicultural, over-medicated, neo-feudal global capitalist marketplace. This Fascism hysteria is doing the trick!

This is the beauty of the "Putin-Nazi" narrative, which was designed to be a one-two punch. First, they hit us with the "Russiagate" hysteria, which worked like a charm on the kind of liberals who have no qualms about destroying whole countries, murdering hundreds of thousands of people in faraway lands that pose zero threat to us, and debt-enslaving millions of Americans to enrich the global investor classes, as long as someone like Obama is doing it. Then, once all the NPR liberals had been whipped into a hysterical frenzy over "Russian propaganda," "collusion," and so on, they hit us with the Fascism hysteria, which is working like a charm on the rest of the Left. (I haven't seen any official polling, but when the official narrative is being mindlessly parroted, not only by the liberal corporate media, but also by "grassroots" left-wing outlets like Truthout, Democracy Now, and CounterPunch, you know their propaganda is working.)

Not that there aren't a bunch of racists, anti-Semites, and other bigots out there. Of course, there are. There always have been, just as there have always been terrorists out there (or non-state militants, depending on your perspective). Some of these racists and anti-Semites are obviously homicidal lunatics. This is not a new phenomenon. The American white supremacist fringe (and, sorry, but it is still a fringe) has been shooting and bombing innocent people, and otherwise doing their utmost to get their ridiculous "Racial Holy War" going since at least the early 1970s, and arguably since end of the Civil War. They have been doing this without any "emboldenment" from billionaire jackasses like Donald Trump, and they will continue to do this once Trump is gone and this Fascism hysteria has outlived its usefulness ... like the War on Terror hysteria did.

If you're in the mood to live a bit dangerously and want a little preview of what that will be like, switch off your smartphone for a minute, turn off the television, shut down the notebook, and walk out into the city, suburb, town, or gated community you live in. Does it look like the Nazis have taken over? OK, want to live even a little more dangerously? And I'm talking about flirting with serious thought crime. Ask yourself, how many actual terrorists did you encounter during the War on Terror (that is, assuming you didn't invade their country and start, you know, bombing and shooting at them)? Can you even remember as far back as July, when Oceania was at war with Russia, and Trump (temporarily) wasn't Hitler, but was a treasonous "Russian intelligence asset," who was almost certainly going to disband NATO, and a "crippling Russian cyber attack" on vital American infrastructure was imminent?

I doubt it, because that never happened. Oceania has never been at war with Russia. Oceania is at war with Fascism. Oceania has always been at war with Fascism. Donald Trump has always been Hitler. He has never been a Russian intelligence asset. Obama never put children in cages, or assassinated entire families at weddings. Trump's nativism leads to anti-Semitism. America is not a safe place for Jews. The invasion of Iraq was just a tragic mistake, which will never, ever, happen again. There are no global capitalist elites, and anybody who says there are is an anti-Semite, and a fascistic thought criminal, and an emboldener of domestic terrorism, which is "a plague America can no longer ignore." Oh, yeah, and I almost forgot, the Ministry of Plenty has just announced that there will be no reduction of the chocolate ration. The chocolate ration will be increased!

So don't forget to vote blue tomorrow and help the Party defeat the fascists! Or, if you're one of the fascists, don't forget to vote red tomorrow and help the Party save America from that Jewish Mexican zombie horde that is coming to steal your fruit-picking job! And whatever you do, stay tuned to the telescreen, and do not start thinking about global capitalism, or the manufacture of mass hysteria, or put anything into any kind of broader historical or geopolitical context. That kind of thinking leads straight to thought crime ... and we all know where thought crime leads.

I just like seeing blues complain about the evils of america, the evils of the CIA, the overwhelming surveillance, etc, and then go on to defend Putin, who was a KGB officer. it just makes me laugh.

blab on and on about Putin, KGB etc. but until you include the governors of CA, TX, or NY in your all-star wrestling match it's nothing but mental masturbation.
