On December 29, 2016, the Obama Administration with three weeks remaining in its term issued harsh sanctions against Russia over supposed election interference. Two compounds in the United States were closed and 35 Russian diplomats were ordered to leave the country.
Russia responded by calling the actions Cold War déjà vu.
In the two years that have elapsed since, it has been learned that the intelligence that formed the basis for the sanctions was beyond dubious.
A single unverified dossier compiled by an ex-British spy with no discernable connections to Russia was shopped to FISA judges and the media as something real.
The dossier was opposition research by the Hillary Clinton campaign, a fact that was not disclosed and actively hidden by off-the-book transactions through the law firm Perkins Coie.
As a dog that chases its tail, the fake dossier was being used to cause the investigation which itself lent credibility to the notion of Russian interference.
The FBI and CIA thumbed the eye of an armed nuclear state based on false intelligence. Why?

Hussein wanted to screw up relations with the Rooskies.
They likely wouldn’t do something Bronco wanted them to do.
Like attack Israel from Syria.
They wanr=ted to leave a lit fuse on a bomb for Trump.
I have thought this as a possibility for a long time. The Cold War is Deepstate job security.
These people really are not paying attention.
Russia is not the problem.
China however, is very much a big challenge.
BOTH PARTIES HAVE BEEN COMPLETELY SOLD OUT to China. Including Hollywood, as well.
No Russia is not the threat.
China however, is another animal entirely.
Great, great article!!!! Summarizes nicely the whole damn thing.
Saving and sharing!!!
The Atlantic Council is funded by Ukrainian billionaire Victor Pinchuk, a $10 million donor to the Clinton Foundation. The fix was in. CrowdStrike dutifully reported that the Russians were behind the hack.
The Atlantic Council is also funded by George Soros, whose Russian and Ukranian policy dovetailed with that being promoted by Hillary and others such as John McCain in 2016.
“China however, is another animal entirely.”
I share your frustration. Actions by Deep State have completely messed up our foreign policy. When war comes between China and India or some other south east asia country many will not see it coming.
We need cooperation with Russia. We need to gut the politicians in the CIA, NSA, FBI, etc.
From the link in my previous post: “In May 2016, a report by the Associated Press identified the Atlantic Council as one of a number of think tanks which had received funding from the Ploughshares Fund. The Ploughshares Fund is financed by George Soros’ Open Society Foundation. A May 5, 2016 article by the New York Times revealed that the Ploughshares Fund was a major player in efforts to sell the Iranian nuclear deal to the American public. The deal has been generally criticized as a foreign policy failure, resulted in the transfer of hundreds of billions of dollars to Iran without any concessions in return and has failed to prevent Iran from continuing to illegally test long range ICBM missiles in violation of both the deal and international sanctions.”
“The Atlantic Council proudly lists a jaw dropping number of various special interest groups, government agencies, foreign governments and well connected, wealthy individual patrons among its donors. Highlights on the list include the foundation of Ukranian oligarch Victor Pinchuk, The Open Society Foundation, the United Arab Emirates, Bahaa Hariri, the billionaire brother of Lebanese prime minister Saad Hariri, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Inc., NATO, the United States Department of State, Lockheed Martin Corporation and the Turkish Ministry of Energy & National Resources, whose head Berat Albayrak was the subject of leaks released by publishing giant Wikileaks exposing increasing political oppression in Turkey.”
Government is never ever your friend. It is always a beast that must be tamed. You would think the last century was proof enough.
The cold war never ended... the battlefield simply changed.
Today we call it the swamp.
‘ex-patriot’ should be expatriate.
What still is just bonkers is that the FBI & CIA — having been packed & stacked with useful idiots going back to 9/11 — failed to see how Trump would thwart them by creating a War Cabinet full of generals that had had their fill of these same useful idiots, after being completely cut out of full promotions, Cabinets, czarships, diplo posts, etc.
John McCain is the one who tried to restart the Cold War.
they are Russian agents, they know the deal..
Careful. There’re quite a few pugnacious anti-Russia McCainocrats/Europhiles in this forum. They will accuse you of being Russian factory troll.
I hope somewhere on Trump’s agenda is finding a way to plug up these money-laundering organizations disguised as charitable trusts, etc.
