"Wake Up America" Dennis Kucinich Defends Trump, Issues Dire Warning About "Deep State"

Submitted by Michael Shedlock via MishTalk.com,

Dennis Kucinich, Former U.S. Rep. and Democratic presidential candidate, defended Donald Trump on “Mornings with Maria” on Tuesday.

In regards to Michael Flynn’s resignation, Kucinich defended Trump and told America to “Wake Up”

Anti-Russia Game

In the interview, Kucinich blamed factions of the US intelligence community for wanting to end any positive relationship between Russia and the US, hoping for a return of the cold war.

"...the American people have to know that there's a game going on inside the intelligence community... at the bottom of all this is the fact that there are those that seek to separate US from Russia to reignite the cold war... wake up America!!"

Kucinich did not see this as an anti-Trump game, but rather an anti-Russia game:

“It’s not just this administration. I want to remind the views and all those who are on the panel that in the closing months of the Obama administration, they put together a deal with Russia to create peace in Syria. A few days later, a military strike in Syria killed a hundred Syrian soldiers and that ended the agreement. What happened is inside the intelligence and the Pentagon there was a deliberate effort to sabotage an agreement the White House made.”

This is like “Deep State” said Kucinich.

My take: Anyone against war wanting to open ties with Russia has at least something on the ball.

 say Israeli Likudists

It has been a while since the "'incident" of the U.S.S Liberty you know... and not like they stopped infiltrating all our Media, Banks, Courts, Music, Hollywod, Alex Jones or whatever the fuck you can imagine.

You ever watched House of Cards? And you think that having Kushner sitting in the Oval Office, they got nothing to do with this Russian Shit?

WRONG. They can bring Iran War anyway... even without need.

Fucking any cooperation between USA and Russia would screw their "Middle East Plan"

"Politics is war"- Saul Alinsky. Time for hard-line scorched earth policy against these assholes. Do you think they are going to play fair?

You're the president.  You have the DOJ.  You can have the DOJ go after people in the intel community for the equivalent of insider trading.

Yup, don't wait and let it fester. Hit 'em hard and swift. Blitzkrieg then more blitzkrieg. Put the fear of God in them: "Oh no, maybe he really IS Hitler!"

TL;DR: In 2007 saying: DLC are now Neocons, Engage Syria and Iran for peacekeeping force, Rebuild relations with Russia, move towards nuclear disarmament.

I like Kuciniche's nonintervetionist stances, but the well intentioned notion of a regional "peackeeeping" force with Syria and Iran involved would have been a disastrous clusterfuck. This is not to say it would have necesarilly turned out worse than us staying longer in Iraq but it also would have been a catastrophy.

One we intervened and "broke" Iraq we didn't just buy it, we bought poison and took it, and it's still coursing through the world system.

I say "remember who he is", and post a link to an article that shows him to be everything ZH represents, and fucktards downvote me.

Kucinich is an interventionist. It's impossible to be both a socialist and non-interventionist. By definition socialism requires force to implement. While I appreciate the gist of Kucinich's argument, still, he advocates using government (which as G. Washington reminded us is force) to implement policy.

The NDAA of 2013 makes legal the creation and dissemination of propaganda for the domestic population.

Creation and dissemination of bullshit. They make it - they spread it - Americans eat it up like Doritos.

Crunch all you want - they'll make more.

Remember who Kucinich is, people


Kucinich co-authored HR2990, which puts a knife in the heart of private money power (bankster creation of credit).  That would make him the worst enemy of neo-liberalcons ever.

Plus, the video itself - he is calling out the deep state.

Do you own thinking.

Who benefits from war?

1. "Patriotic" Politicians who approve war

2. Arms companies

3.Banks that lend money to arms companies

4.Banks that finance the war rebuilding

5. Media who only promote the first half of Bastiat's parable of a broken window where he points out why destruction doesn't benefit the economy.


fbazzrea's picture

Who loses from war?

1. Our young people serving in the military

2. The loved ones of those who are killed or maimed.

3. Current and future generations of American taxpayers

4. American citizens losing benefits either via govt defaults or increased monetary inflation due to deficit spending

5. Our planet from further creation of enriched weapons-grade radioisotopes

6. The 99%.

Prepare for the worst. Hope for the best. Remain vigilant.

war is a racket; smedley butler

Creative_Destruct's picture

Everything it seems has evolved into a racket. War is racket for the MIC and its dependent employed. Medicine is a racket for the insurance companies and doctors. Insurance is a racket. The Fed is the ultimate racket along with the dollar reserve petro-dollar system because it feeds the debt driven milking of the 99% who are milked by the other rackets.

We are immersed in a "legalized" racketeering extortion system that has been slowly foisted on we little froggies who are slowly cooking in the pot as the temperature is gradually raised.

10 of thousands of global contractors.  

I can tell you, our little rust belt city which fell off the US major cities list a few years back due to economic contraction would probably wither away and die if it was not for Lockheed-Martin and other associated defense contractors.

The problem with the MIC is its behind a vast number of middle and upper middle class incomes in cities all over the country.  Good luck cutting that back without enraging the employees/voters .   Without other jobs to run to, these extremely educated but scared workers are going to make sure a MIC contaction NEVER happens.

Yeah, but whose fault is it that all other manufacturing EXCEPT 'DEFENSE/ARMS/EMPIRE' was outsourced to China? 

Manufacturing needs to come back to America, and the war business will have to settle for 'organic' business, no more of this 'Oh gosh, looks like we have to solve another problem we created.'

L Bean's picture

Yep. People think "Disney" and "Spring Break" when they think of the state of Florida. In reality it's a MIC. Literally every real job is MIC. And the service economy that this brings along with it - legal and retail services, healthcare and then geriatric ex MIC'er care.

All local governments are completely and openly subservient to corporate "needs", 100% of the time. If that means a nuisance to the residents or to the environment, so be it!

I think the current hypercompartmentalization of the American worker facilitates these corporate welfare programs. The right hand really does not know what the left hand is doing, and the pay is so good that the left hand could be raping their own daughter in front of them and they still wouldn't get it. 

I had jury duty a few weeks ago and everyone with a job was working for Rockwell Collins, Boeing, General Dynamics, Harris Corp, Raytheon, Northrup Grumman.  Two women even worked in the same building(but agreed that this wouldn't hinder their judgment).

But yes, the point remains, that was a serious mark on Trump's credibility, to remove the ONLY guy who has mentioned child sex trafficking, and blackmail of politicians at the highest levels!

Kuncinich is needed back in Congress.....

A total nutball on certain things....but Dennis is as "honest" of a representative as there is/was.....

divingengineer's picture

Yeah, he's hit and miss.
He rolls out a real doozy every once in a while, just to keep you guessing.

El Vaquero's picture

Yup.  I probably disagree with him on a lot of things, but I've never felt like he deliberately tried to mislead me.  

BarkingCat's picture

I always said that while I disagree with his political views most of the time, I believe that is is one of the very few honest politicians. 

I would also have taken him as president over any republican, with the exception of Ron Paul, that was also running at the same time.

How nice to see an intelligent comment from Kucinich for a change!

bh2's picture

Dennis Kucinich is to the left. He's also one of the most honorable men who has ever served in Congress and shoots straight. He doesn't bend with the breeze or support "talking points" issued by dim dem handlers. He isn't a Soros guy. He devoutly respects the Constitution.

He's never been a big hit on Fox because he's also one of the most understated politicians on the planet. He simply states his view and leaves you to decide for yourself.

He also actively co-sponsored a bill with Ron Paul to audit the FED:


If you hate the banksters and their many crimes against the people of the US and the world, Kucinich is an honest ally.

realWhiteNight123129's picture

He has signed several bills with Ron Paul, that alone means he is not your run of the mill democrat...

Thank you, well said!

Finally a burst of clarity here in the Depends Peanut Gallery. I always smile to myself when I think about coming here to read the current articles, but mostly to see what the trend of opinion is just now in the kook's comment hut.

Sometimes a breath of fresh air penetrates the fog here. Good fair reporting. Somebody send a copy over the Cluntin News Nonsence so they can practice reading real news, tryout for the BIG_TIME!

I'm sure all of us here are fimly convinced that when referring to Kooks, that you are surely referring to someone other than us!

WE, are the clarion voice of reason!

Hey, Asscheese... why are YOU here in the "Depends peanut gallery"??  You like the taste of your own piss puddle as much as you like the taste of Hillary's bunghole?

steelhead23's picture

No, he is not defending Trump.  Rather he is identifying a threat to peace and stability - The Deep State.  What I find sad here is that the Democratic Party is almost rejoicing.  This does not bode well.

Democrats are still part of the Bush cabal, and that's what we are fighting.

The raging homos hate Russia because Putin won't let gays run his country.


steelhead23's picture

What I see is a party that can't/won't accept that it lost because it ran a poor candidate, beat the bushes to find the culprit and landed upon "Putin helped Trump win.  Those pesky Ruskies are at it again," leading it to become an unwitting allie to the Deep State.  As a lefty it saddens me that Sanders has bought into this shit.  

garcam123's picture

I sent the fucker money.  Not a lot, but more than I have EVER given to a politician, and got conned. Against my better judgement, but I would have voted for him or even a toad to beat Hitlery, maybe I did wind up voting for a toad after all, but I'm pissed that Sanders is sitting there at the new lakeside house acquired with pay-off money from the Hitlery Committee, I sure!

Oldwood's picture

If you are going to sell your soul to the devil you should do it while young to get the most for your investment.

For someone as old as Bernie to do it is just sad, but then again he has never had a job and is fully acceptant to the notion of dependency, so it wasn't much of a stretch for him.

In Ze No's picture

A lakeside house in VT isn't that big of a pay out.  He disappeared the way Ron Paul did after the same stealing of delegates at their respectime conventions.

With all the unexplained death surrounding the Democratic party, I won't rule out a little kicker of death threat could have been part of the incentive package, either aimed at the candidates themselves or their families.

He did not buy into it. He was/is controlled opposition to fool the masses. Communism, it never worked before, and always was the worst form of government and exactly like kings and peasants, but I figured out how to do it right this time, Trust me! Ever wonder why his voting base was millinials and uneducated people in general? They don't even know what the Cold War is to this day. Here is a hint. If you were a scientist and you crossed the official line of regulated science pogram, you would be unceremoniously taken out of your humble dwellings in the middle of the night and your next job would be picking snow peas in Siberia or something more entertaining to your overlords. The scientists family? More entertainment. Best to complain about every freedom you have now.
