Report: Trump’s lawyer hand-delivered Michael Flynn a secret plan to lift sanctions on Russia implicating Trump in TREASON

FELIX SATER, ALLEGED MAFIA. THEY LEFT OUT THE WORD “JEWISH.”

[Note: This post was prepared early Monday morning. I held it back, waiting to see how things would shake out. It’s still not clear what the fallout will be. I’m posting it with uncertainty still hanging in the air.]

The Internet was very busy Sunday night, implicating American president Donald Trump in pedophilia (via his association with MILO Yiannopoulas) and in treason via his association with General Michael Flynn. I have separate posts on MILO. This one is about allegations relating to Trump’s Jewish lawyer and General Flynn–allegations sparking renewed calls for Trump’s removal from office.

This story also links Trump to the Mafia. National Vanguard dishes the info on Trump’s Jewish associates Felix Sater and Michael Cohen, who are at the center of this contrived controversy..

Business Insider

Trump Organization lawyer Michel Cohen hand-delivered a “peace” plan for Russia and Ukraine to former national security adviser Michael Flynn before Flynn was asked to resign, the New York Times reported on Sunday.

The plan, which involved lifting sanctions on Russia, was drafted by Cohen — a close confidante of President Donald Trump who has served as his organization’s special counsel since 2007 — and Felix Sater, a Russian-American real estate developer who has helped the Trump Organization scout deals in Russia.

Sater, a businessman formerly linked with the Mafia who has boasted of his “relationship with Trump,” told the Washington Post last May that he “handled all of the negotiations” for the Trump Organization’s dealings in Russia in the mid-2000’s.

Ukrainian lawmaker Andrii V. Artemenko, who met with Trump’s campaign team during the election, was also involved in drafting the proposal. Artemenko told the Times he had evidence of Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko’s corruption that could lead to his ouster.

Poroshenko has been locked in a war with pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine since he took power in 2014, and is considered more friendly to the West than his ousted predecessor, Viktor Yanukovych. Yanukovych’s political rise was heavily aided by former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

Cohen, Sater, and Artemek met in a hotel lobby on Park Avenue in Manhattan in late January to draw up the proposal, the Times said, which Cohen claimed was aimed at “bringing about peace” between Ukraine and Russia. Violence flared up in eastern Ukraine last month between the Ukrainian army and pro-Russia separatists, in what amounted to the worst fighting in nearly a year.

Cohen said he has not discussed the plan with Trump directly, and is waiting to see how Trump’s new national security adviser — who has yet to be named — will address it. Trump has suggested he would be open to lifting sanctions on Russia if Moscow proved a useful ally in fighting terrorism.

“If you get along and if Russia is really helping us,” Trump told the Wall Street Journal last month, “why would anybody have sanctions if somebody’s doing some really great things?”

Cohen, Trump’s lawyer, was named in the explosive, unsubstantiated dossier presented by top US intelligence officials to Trump and senior lawmakers last month that has increased scrutiny of his presidential campaign’s ties to Russia.

The memos, compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele for an opposition research firm in Washington, DC, said that Cohen was part of the “ongoing secret liaison relationship between the New York tycoon’s campaign and the Russian leadership,” and that he met secretly with Kremlin officials in Prague in August 2016.

Cohen, whose wife is Ukrainian, insisted shortly after the dossier was published that he was in California at the time of the alleged meeting, and that he had never been to Prague.

The FBI is currently reviewing the allegations made in the dossier, and is pursuing three separate investigations into Russian hacking that targeted prominent Democrats during the US election. The intelligence community is also examining phone calls made between Trump associates and Russian officials throughout the campaign.

As this post is being composed early Monday morning before the start of the business day, no official Washington responses are yet available to analyze. However, Twitter exploded (it always explodes) in rage against Trump’s “treason.”

The correct way to view these far left Tweets and many others is to recognize that the (((Deep State))) is fighting for its existence. If the treason that those folks have done sees the light of day, they will be the ones in prison, not Donald Trump.

Listen! Russian Pranksters Hoax John McCain by Pretending to be Ukrainian Prime Minister

mccain crazy collage

Russian pranksters have hoaxed several of the anti-Trump people in Congress. Embedded at the bottom is an entertaining eleven minutes featuring hawish neocon Senator John “Songbird” McCain.

Sputnik News

Famous Russian phone pranksters Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexei Stolyarov, known as Vovan and Lexus, have made hoax phone calls to US Senators Lindsey Graham, John McCain and Republican Majority leader Mitch McConnell into speaking about the sanctions against Russia, Kuznetsov told Sputnik.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The news comes as the pranksters called US Congresswoman Maxine Waters, the one who earlier claimed that “Putin is continuing to advance into Korea,” to say that Russia has invaded Limpopo, an African river that the politician believed to be a country in Africa.

Having introduced themselves as Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, Kuznetsov and Stolyarov also discussed the sanctions against Russia with Waters.

Following the incident, Peskov said Kremlin was not linked to the prank phone calls and appreciated the fact that nobody had the idea to accuse Moscow of the tricks.

The sanctions issue was also discussed with US republicans, according to the hoaxers.

“We have pranked McCain, Lindsey Graham and the Republican Majority leader in Congress McConnell in the Congress Mitch McConnell on the issue of anti-Russian sanctions, however, we can not tell the details yet,” Kuznetsov said.

Since 2014, relations between Russia and the European Union and the United States, deteriorated amid the crisis in Ukraine. Brussels, Washington and their allies introduced several rounds of sanctions against Russia on the pretext of its alleged involvement in the Ukrainian conflict, which Moscow has repeatedly denied. In response to the restrictive measures, Russia has imposed a food embargo on some products originating in countries that have targeted it with sanctions.

Since then, NATO has been building up its military presence in Europe, particularly in eastern European countries bordering Russia, using Moscow’s alleged interference in Ukraine as a pretext.

As noted in several youtube comments, the case could be made that McCain committed an act of treason by negotiating with the Ukraine to undercut President Donald Trump’s policies.

Trump Triumphant: Epic Press Conference Puts President in Media’s Lying Faces (Video)

President Donald Trump held a press conference on Thursday.

The media’s ears are still burning.

The first half hour of the presser offers a statement by President Trump that takes the media to the woodshed and beats the Hell out of them.

I’ve only watched part of the rest–up to the hour and 41 minute mark. While taking questions from the press, Trump repeatedly excoriates their “fake news” false narratives.

Soon after I saw that the press was reporting that Trump went on some sort of insane, horrific rant. Watch and see the truth.

If you prefer to read, which is quicker, Rush Limbaugh offers long excerpts and some commentary.

This was an amazing rebuke of the absolute nonsense that the press invents to suit its ends.

You might say that the (((press))) experienced a Holocaust today.

Insights into General Flynn’s Personality Shortcomings Help Explain His Termination

Before we forget who General Michael Flynn was and how he was terminated, let’s take a look at a plausible explanation for the hidden CAUSES of his firing.

Excerpt from Lew Rockwell

I would add that the recent media attacks on Flynn are grounded on the fact that an FBI investigation is underway. Had there not been such an investigation it is difficult to see how the media attacks on Flynn could have gained traction. Indeed it is doubtful they would have happened at all. Given that were it not for these media attacks Flynn would still be President Trump’s National Security Adviser, Flynn’s ouster is Sally Yates’s parting gift to an administration she clearly deeply opposes and was working against.

Having said all this, Donald Trump and his team would probably have stuck with Flynn had there not also been serious concerns about his performance as National Security Adviser.

By most accounts, Flynn is an abrasive personality, who makes enemies easily, and there have been numerous reports of his poor management skills in a job where such skills are essential. The fact that he obviously failed to take proper notes of his conversations with Kislyak – relying instead on his memory – is just one example of his sloppy approach to paperwork, something which incidentally must have dismayed Pence the lawyer.

Flynn also clearly has an obsessive streak, as shown by his pathological hostility to Iran, which is obviously inappropriate for someone who is the President’s most important adviser on national security questions.

There is also another possible problem with Flynn, which may have worked against him. This is his habit of self-promotion as shown by his extraordinary appearance in the White House briefing room to read out his statement about Iran.

In the 1970s, in the age of Kissinger and Brzezinski, the President’s National Security Adviser ran US foreign policy, ousting the Secretary of State and the State Department from that role. Unsurprisingly Kissinger and Brzezinsky were media stars, far outshining the Secretaries of State of the period (William Rogers, Cyrus Vance, and Edward Muskie).

In the 1980s under Ronald Reagan, a successful effort was made to re-establish the Secretary of State’s and the State Department’s primacy in managing the nation’s foreign policy, with the National Security Adviser once again relegated to an advisory role. Since then no National Security Adviser has achieved anything like the power or prominence that Kissinger and Brzezinski once had.

It is not impossible that the very public role Flynn was carving out for himself alarmed some people within the foreign policy and national security bureaucracy, with fears that Flynn was seeking to make himself Donald Trump’s Kissinger or Brzezinski. If so it would not be surprising if the bureaucracy united against him to see off the challenge, with even senior officials like Tillerson and Mattis in that case probably wanting Flynn to go.

Whatever the reasons for his going, Flynn’s departure is, however, a serious blow for Donald Trump.

Former Congressman Kucinich on Trump: Deep State’s Aim is to Foment Profitable Cold War with Russia

Dennis Kucinich may be a liberal, but he tells the truth as he sees it, rather than sticking to the New World Order narrative. He’s a former Congressman from Ohio, if you’re not familiar with him. He’s also often politically incorrect.

I rate this video very highly. If you can spare 8 minutes, you’ll understand better the crisis that America is experiencing now.

Published on Feb 15, 2017

“Whether you’re for Trump or against Trump, the White House is under attack from elements inside the intelligence community, which are trying to elevate tensions between Russia and the US! At the bottom of that is money & an agenda to cash-in on conflict! There’s a game going on inside the intelligence community where there are those who want to separate the US from Russia in a way that would re-ignite the cold war…Wake up America!”

Disgusting Blob Michael Moore Melts Down; Tells Trump To “Resign By Morning” Or Face “Impeachment You Russian Traitor”

michael moore

Whatever happened to sane, elegant Hollywood? Today, we have Lena Dunham, Sarah Silverman, and sloppy Michael Moore. We can’t get rid of them. They constantly want to be in our faces with their ridiculous drivel.

With Dunham and Silverman, I think they may really be looney tunes. In Moore’s case there’s at least some chance his wacky outbursts are planned in order to burnish his credentials with the left.

Zerohedge

Michael Moore, the ultra-liberal documentary filmmaker who infamously predicted a Trump victory well before election night last November by stunningly calling Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio and Pennsylvania for the Republican nominee, has, over the past 24 hours, decided to broadcast his latest nervous breakdown over Twitter for all to see.

It all started with the following tweet storm posted by Moore in the wee hours of the morning saying that, among other things, “Flynn DID NOT make that Russian call on his own” but rather “was INSTRUCTED to do so.” Moore went on to insist that Flynn was just the first of several senior Trump advisors that would inevitably be fired and predicted that “Miller & Bannon” would be next before calling on Trump himself to “Resign by morning!”

And, lest you thought he was just joking and/or slept off his temporary “mental incapacitation” and decided to move on with his life, Moore just lit up the Twittersphere again this afternoon asking Trump “What part of “vacate you Russian traitor” don’t you understand?” while threatening that “We can do this the easy way (you resign), or the hard way (impeachment).”

But, while we certainly respect his November prognostication and admire his tenacity, we suspect his calls for a Trump resignation may be premature…just a hunch.

The alt-right has its eye on Michael every day:

The Flynn Flap is Leading to the Quick Impeachment of Donald J. Trump

Muh Russians. Muh Russians.

The (((Deep State))) smells blood in the water now.

This post is being sourced from several liberal new sites in order to expose the pattern that the narrative is now taking. That narrative is following the pattern of Watergate, as I remember it.

This first excerpt is by (((David Frum,))) a real piece of work with a hatred of Republicans. I’ve crossed through the unproven parts.

Excerpt from The Atlantic

Title: Why Flynn’s Resignation Matters

To put the story in simplest terms:

1) Russian spies hacked Democratic Party communications in order to help elect Donald Trump.

2) Donald Trump welcomed the help, used it, publicly solicited more of it—and was then elected president of the United States.

3) President Obama sanctioned Russia for its pro-Trump espionage.

4) While Russia considered its response, its ambassador spoke with the national security adviser-designate about the sanctions

5) The adviser, Flynn, reportedly asked Russia not to overreact, signaling that the new administration would review the sanctions; Russia did not respond.

6) As president-elect and then president, Donald Trump has indicated that he seeks to lift precisely those sanctions caused by Russia’s espionage work on his behalf.

All of this takes place against the background of Donald Trump’s seeming determination to align U.S. foreign policy ever closer to Russia’s: endorsing the annexation of Crimea, supporting Russia’s war aims in Syria, casting doubt on the U.S. guarantee to NATO allies, cheering on the breakup of the European Union.

It takes place, too, in the context of Trump’s murky corporate financial obligations to Russian entities. “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets,” Donald Trump Jr. told an investor conference in 2008. “We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.” Exactly how much money is unknown to anyone outside the Trump Organization, because of the president’s repeated refusal to embrace financial transparency. But the pattern of Trump wealth-seeking in Russia has been widely reported, including the multimillion-dollar windfall profit gained from the sale of a Palm Beach mansion to a Russian oligarch at a particularly tense time in the Trump family finances—the same period when he was lending his name to such shabby operations as Trump University and Trump Steaks.

Flynn is the third Trump associate to resign because of the revelation of close connections to the Russian state: Paul Manafort and Carter Page preceded him. Will more follow?

Those Republicans who never cared much for Trump have seized the moment, preparing for the coup d’etat just around the corner.

Washington Post (paywall after 10 free looks per month)

Top Republican and Democratic senators pledged Tuesday to deepen their investigation of Russian involvement in the 2016 election in the wake of Michael T. Flynn’s resignation as President Trump’s national security adviser, opening a new and potentially uncomfortable chapter in the uneasy relationship between Trump and Capitol Hill.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said such an investigation is “highly likely,” and the top two members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.), stood side by side Tuesday to announce that the committee’s ongoing probe must include examination of any contacts between campaign officials and the Russian government.

By digging around in Congress, Trump’s power to govern is impaired. The hope among Trump’s enemies of such an investigation is to manufacture evidence that can justify impeachment.

There are the #nevertrump Deep State neocons who reject the democratic process. An impeachment would be nothing to these traitors.

Excerpt from The Week

The whole episode is evidence of the precipitous and ongoing collapse of America’s democratic institutions — not a sign of their resiliency. Flynn’s ouster was a soft coup (or political assassination) engineered by anonymous intelligence community bureaucrats. The results might be salutary, but this isn’t the way a liberal democracy is supposed to function.

We’re always going to lose the Twitter war because Jack obliterates pro-Trump Tweeters’ accounts.
