It is time to "acknowledge the fact" that "US allies have grossly interfered in America’s internal affairs, in the election campaign" Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov said."We noticed that Angela Merkel, Francois Hollande, Theresa May, and other European leaders" did so and "demonized" Donald Trump during the election campaign.
The FBI and five other law enforcement and intelligence agencies have collaborated for months in an investigation into Russian attempts to influence the November election, including whether money from the Kremlin covertly aided President-elect Donald Trump.
Warning that a "soft coup" is being waged against Donald Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he sees attempts in the United States to "delegitimize" US President-elect Donald Trump using "Maidan-style" methods previously used in Ukraine, whle calling those who ordered the compromising Trump dossier "worse than prostitutes."
In two separate, and quite striking interviews with Germany's Bild (paywall) and London's Sunday Times (paywall), Donald Trump did what he failed to do in his first US press conference, and covered an extensive amount of policy and strategy, much of which however will likely please neither the pundits, nor the markets.
The global hegemonic project that was supposed to be realized with a Clinton presidency has been stopped. The inevitable military confrontation with Russia, Iran and China has been averted and the future multipolar world order, historically unstable, will in fact hold the promise of stability thanks to the actions of opposing nations to the American superpower. United they will stabilize the world.
"The only question that really matters in this business is this: What’s the next big move? It’s probably a continuation of the Trump trade"... But "the thing is, consensus trades have a nasty habit of working, just not exactly when you want them to"
"...there is an outside source, which we refer to as a deep state or a shadow government. There is a lot of influence by people that are actually more powerful than our government itself, our president and on up." ... "No president since John F. Kennedy has dared to take on the CIA or the rest of the national security establishment..."
After essentially claiming that Manafort was a hired gun for Putin to intervene in the internal affairs of Ukraine, the government is now reaching out to him? You don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes to see something’s not adding up here. Was the entire investigation a fraud to help Hillary Clinton win the election? If so, isn’t that election interference?
