As we have often explained in our book Splitting Pennies, the world is not as it seems. Politics often polarizes a country it seems every election there becomes 'two' Americas but the current polarization seems to be that of 'rational' and 'irrational' whereas on one side, there are facts; and on the other, hysterical opinions. While no evidence was provided that any Russians 'hacked' the mere accusation in absentia is 'proof' for the irrational left that it was the Russians. "Blame it on the Russians" seems to be the scapegoat story of the day, perhaps lingering from the previous generation that came to power during the cold war. It's a bunch of nonsense, the entire Russian narrative is a fantasy created by intelligence operatives as a propaganda effort to smear Trump and anyone who doesn't fall into the Leftist/Liberal mindframe. As any American who has ever been through the justice system in America knows, you are guilty until proven innocent, not the other way around. Someone can sue you or call the cops and make any false claims and the burden is on you to prove it is false. If the complaining witness is the US Government itself, you can forget about any 'rights' you may have had or the right to a fair trial (they have immunity and other powers that prevent any fair and reasonable defense if you are targeted). As usual, these aggressive and toxic forces that are attacking Trump politically from inside the deep-state are exploiting the masses lack of education of history, so we would like to here expose perhaps one of the most important looked over historical facts pertinent to understanding the deep roots of the relationship between USA and Russia. MUST READ: Wall St. and the Bolshevik Revolution.
Russia was ruled by a Monarchy similar to the rest of Europe until 1917 when the Bolshevik's staged a successful coup of the Kerensky regime thus installing a Soviet Dictatorship run by the Communist Party until its collapse in 1991.
The 1917 Revolution was financed by and orchestrated by Wall St. - Not only did New York bankers provide money, they allowed safe passage to Russia revolutionaries like Trotsky and others by use of diplomatic cover by the US and other governments. The main character in this play was Thompson, wealthy banker and Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Most of the bankers had first degree relationships with J.P. Morgan himself (the man, and the firm). MUST READ: Wall St. and the Bolshevik Revolution.
Although this was reported in the press, at the time, it didn't seem that it required further examination by historians:
William B. Thompson, who was in Petrograd from July until November last, has made a personal contribution of $1,000,000 to the Bolsheviki for the purpose of spreading their doctrine in Germany and Austria ....
Washington Post, February 2, 1918
Of course, the official story is that the "American Red Cross" mission to Russia was a humanitarian effort (but if that was the case, why was it composed of mostly lawyers, bankers, and merchants, and only 2 doctors?)
To really understand this one must read this book MUST READ: Wall St. and the Bolshevik Revolution.
The world is different now. The politics of the time was different. 100 years ago, groups such as the Morgan firm would finance any revolutionary in hopes to gain contracts from a newly formed government. Monopoly Capitalists were the perfect business partners to Communists which operated a state controlled regime. And they achieved their means, guys like Armand Hammer made vast fortunes doing business with the Soviet Union. You see, the Monopolists realized that the best market was one that was controlled. In the example of Russia, consumers had no choices. So if you sold shoes or pencils to the Soviet Government, you sold to all consumers (they had no choice). It was one big customer that always paid on time. There was no advertising. No consumer protection. It was a Monopoly Capitalist's wet dream. And, remember that in this time America was undergoing massive consumer protection reforms that were not present during the previous century.
The bankers who financed the Bolshevik revolution had no interest in politics, in Russia, or in 'helping people' - they wanted big juicy government contracts from Dictatorships. Because in a Dictatorship, the Dictator and his friends make the rules (as in LATAM countries).
But does the world still work like this? It seems so, as Putin claimed in his recent meeting with Trump about Bill Browder, a guy who made unknown fortunes (Billions) in the wild times in the 90's in Russia and paid no taxes. Then he uses his influence to buy politicians, create laws, and is a major financier behind the Russophobia campaign. That's how these creeps use politics for gain, guys like Soros who know how to grease the palms of the wrong people to do their bidding and profit. They only need to trick 30% of the population to create a critical mass of support, as most of their advertising efforts fly in the face of truth and reason. But it's enough, to create a political divide and start a discussion in the wrong topic. Since Trump has been 'defending' himself on the Russia collusion issue, it has been difficult to do anything else. They have used this Russia topic as a stale fish to let rot in the market for days after it has spoiled, preventing any customers from coming close to the market even to discuss other issues.
The take away here is, the deep state has existed for 100 years, as referenced by this book MUST READ: Wall St. and the Bolshevik Revolution.. Here we are just elaborating this historic fact, how the Elite manipulate the system for the benefits of the haves and to the detriment of the have-nots. Browder, Soros, and others like this stand in the way of real democracy, as their real dream of a democracy is that of a Dictatorship with the illusion of Democracy (fixed voting machines). As Trump attempts to 'drain the Swamp' he must confront these demons which he did in his recent meeting with Putin. Ironically, Putin is at the end of a similar campaign in Russia in which he attempts to flush out corruption in Russia which although still widespread is on the decline.
Readers - don't forget the irony here. The Soviet Union was made possible by Monopoly Capitalists who later made fortunes trading with them. During the Cold War the US spent billions in taxpayer money fighting 'Communism' and finally this victory was achieved in 1991 - when the script was flipped and now the Russophobes are against "Russian Mafia" because they are greedy Capitalists! The US convinced the Russians to be a market economy and are now chastising them for their Oligarch class, and other trappings that come with Capitalism. Amazing!
But it is the way of the world, we all have a role to play - and sadly for Russia their role has always been the macabre defender of Western Civilization from the evolving demographic threats whether from the Golden Horde, Third Reich, or ISIS.
