In that last picture, Obama should be holding the Hillary's severed head.

The Steele Dossier is looking more and more solid. Trump's trip to Moscow in November 2013, during which he told us that he had a personal relationship with Putin, and that he greatly admires Putin, precedes the establishment of the DoJ-indicted Russian propaganda operation by just a few months.

In April 2011 Trump was the front-runner for the GOP nomination

yet this past weekend he lied that he did not start running for President till 2014. Trump is a useful idiot.

Fred

Leaky,

Trump didn't announce his candidacy until 2012.

Leaky Ranger

Fred, he ran for the Reform Party nomination for POTUS in 2000. He appeared on Larry King Live in October 1999 to announce his candidacy.

How much influence the British have on US intelligence?

US and British intelligence are two branches on the same tree. This is much more true than with any of the other Anglo services (Canada, Australia, New Zealand) and also closer than with Israel. pl

What a witty way to regurgitate what has already been said.

Gosh, it almost seems...artful.

fred - great post! very entertaining and sobering when one sees just how crazy this has gotten..

5 - pat... we keep on circling back to this, don't we?

in other very related news - a story from the saker oct 15 2017 "A Brief History of the Kremlin Trolls", is also a very good overview on this internet registry agency which makes it look like a nice cia type operation they had going from at least as far back as 2014... worth reading for those following all this..

Contrary to Mr. Muller’ investigations, and what Borg and the MSM wants us to think it’s actually US’ closest allies, the politicly corrupting three, aka UK, Israel, and KSA who have and are meddling in US elections/internal affairs without anybody questioning their involvement in our internal politics. All these three countries are more, and most, venerable than any other allies to US’ change in Trajectory of her foreign policy, with regard to their own region. They continue to meddle and insert their interests Many times against and above US’ own interest under the cover of US’ most dependable allies. These three country’ security depends on US foreign policy. Other countries may wish to meddle and empower their choices of US statesmen, but they don’t possess an unquestioned blank free security pass to freely insert themselves in US internal affairs as these three countries posses with consent of the US Borg.


Fred

Leaky,

You mean Trump arranged for Putin to replace Yeltsin in 1999 so that decades later trolls at an organic troll farm would help him beat President Clinton's wife in an election? Now that is really a conspiracy worth digging into.

Anna

Leaky, have you noticed that the latest Mueller indictment indicts, by extension, Mr. Steele, the hapless "agent" who is currently under investigation in his native land of UK? The paper explains why Steele is a criminal according to Mueller-Rosenstein’ opus about trolling and very-very bad trolls. This opus has been compared favorably to The Onion production (sample: https://www.theonion.com/tag/politics)

If DT was able to plan and execute such a complicated plan a decade ago with this precision, IMO, he deserve to be not only the president of US, but ruler of all the Terrestrial planets.

Anna

Leaky, here is an informed opinion of Mike Whitney: http://www.unz.com/mwhitney/goofy-indictments-divert-attention-from-criminal-abuses-at-the-fbi-and-doj/
"Robert Mueller’s Friday night indictment-spree, is a flagrant and infuriating attempt to divert attention from the damning revelations in the Nunes memo (and the Graham-Grassley “criminal referral”) which prove that senior-level officials at the FBI and DOJ were engaged in an expansive conspiracy to subvert the presidential elections..."
1. "the senior-level officials in the FBI and DOJ were engaged in an expansive conspiracy to subvert the presidential elections."
-- This is the most damning conclusion that speaks about violation of the US Constitution, i.e., about the treason within the national security apparatus
2. from Mueller' indictment: “U.S. law bans foreign nationals from making certain expenditures or financial disbursements for the purpose of influencing federal elections. U.S. law also bars agents of any foreign entity from engaging in political activities within the United States without first registering with the Attorney General.”
-- Right. Bring on Mr. Steele and the UK' brass from the British intelligence agency Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) plus the Lobby cabal.

I guess if you don't laugh at the state of our Swamp, you really have to cry instead.

Thank you for this.

Maybe if the Borg make it to my little home out here in the outer part of Galaxy U.S., I won't even try to resist, since that--as we all know--is futile.

Leaky Ranger

Fred, are you being purposely obtuse? We are in agreement that Trump lied over the weekend. All I was doing was pointing out that he had been running for President before your 2012 date (and certainly before the 2014 date that he tweeted). Compared to Trump, Steele is a paragon of truth.

Laura

It is all looking very solid. Mueller is a masterful legal prosecutor and he is carefully tying up the lose ends in a very methodical way. The Constitution is well-served by this counselor and his team.

Leaky Ranger

Anna, that's a parody site. Why would you inject that into the discussion?

David Habakkuk

Fred and all,

Much enjoyed this post.

One observation. It seems to me it is time that we abandoned the pathetic pretence that the contemporary United States, and Britain, are secular, rational, societies.

It has become increasingly clear that beneath a thin veneer of rationality, we believe in witchcraft, every bit as much as our seventeenth century forbears.

However, I am not sure that Robert Mueller is really up to the roll of ‘Witchfinder General’.

We need better candidates.

Paul Krugman, perhaps?

Fred

Leaky,

A public statement by Public Policy Polling is not a legal announcement of candidacy for office. They were trolling for work for their North Carolina based company and put out that puff piece in 2011. Maybe you should re-read the indictment where Meuller's team specificlly calls out the defendants for violating Federal Elections Commission regulations. "We are in agreement that Trump lied over the weekend." No we are not. I've said no such thing but am hardly surprised that a politician would lie. Did he do it in court under oath - "this weekend"? No. Did the anyone at the FBI lie in statements and submissions to the FISA court, to the House or Senate Committees or to the President - either of them - regarding this case?

Fred, thanks for the belly laugh. Your essay reminds me of Alan Farrell's hilarious stream-of-consciousness movie reviews posted here years ago. Keep up the good work.

Although a few things may be said about the indictment of some Russians by the special counsel Robert Mueller -- one of which is that the main criminal charge was immediately repudiated in a hilarious public statement by the person in the Justice Department who announced the indictment, Number Two Man Rod Rosenstein -- nothing can top the Time Magazine cover of 15 July 1996, which told the world: "Exclusive, Yanks to the Rescue, The Secret Story of How American Advisers Helped Yeltsin Win" [I kid you not]--

Excellent Fred! Had a good laugh this morning.

Apparently much of Mueller's indictment was written up in a Radio Free Europe report from 2015. In any case this indictment opens up the question of which other foreign entities violated federal statutes? Is Mueller gonna investigate any of them? Or is it just Russia that he cares about?

It would seem Steele violated the same statutes. When is he going to be indicted by Mueller?

Jack

Then there is John Podesta...

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-02-19/watch-flustered-john-podesta-respond-why-russians-operatives-were-smarter-hillary

Bartiromo then goes on to break down how Podesta joined the board of the board of a small energy company in 2011 which later received $35 million from a Kremlin-funded entity. Other members of the board of Joule Unlimited included senior Russian official Anatoly Chubais and oligarch Reuben Vardanyan - a Putin appointee to the Russian economic modernization council. Podesta jettisoned his shares before the 2016 election, transferring them to his daughter via a shell corporation

Not everyone agrees with you: https://consortiumnews.com/2018/02/19/nunes-fbi-and-doj-perps-could-be-put-on-trial/
“House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) stated that there could be legal consequences for officials who may have misled the FISA court. “If they need to be put on trial, we will put them on trial. The reason Congress exists is to oversee these agencies that we created.”
-- Here is explanation to the deprivation of the US citizenry of factual information: "One glaring sign of the media’s unwillingness to displease corporate masters and Official Washington is the harsh reality that Hersh’s most recent explosive investigations, using his large array of government sources to explore front-burner issues, have not been able to find a home in any English-speaking newspaper or journal. In a sense, this provides what might be called a “confidence-building” factor, giving some assurance to deep-state perps that they will be able to ride this out, and that congressional committee chairs will once again learn to know their (subservient) place."
-- This is why The Onion could be on a par with The NYT, WaPo, The New Yorker, and such. The New Yorker used to be a great journal, but under the watchful eye of the Russophobic Remnick, the journal's {sub}standards have become indistinguishable from the MSM's standards
