            Is that why?

            Or is the Deep State just trying to extort every last bit of Russia’s natural resources and wealth?

            I honestly can’t decide.

              The Greed for Russia’s natural resources is historic.
              The secret component of the Russophobia and warmongering is the hatred by some of Orthodox Christianity.

              These are fairly simple concepts backed by many hundreds of years of history.

              Ukraine is just a platform and a proxy. They will be the cannon fodder when they attack.
              The NATO/US advisers and participants will be killed, wounded or captured this time, not like Feb. 2015 when Putin allowed 700 to escape on buses and trucks during a pause at Debaltsevo,

              Like every enemy that comes at Russia through the steppes of Donbass and Ukraine, the result is preordained. The Russians will annihilate them.

              Look up the battle of Debaltsevo in 2015. Check out the Battle of Ilovaisk in 2014.
              (Warning, the search results on the Internet are festooned with revisionist accounts. Try to find contemporaneous reports from the Donbass, not propaganda planted. Ukraine and CIA have many stories downplaying the disasters and naturally, blaming the Russians.)

              The American military analysts from two years ago have made more accurate accounts when they studied the actual battle reports and after-action accounts. That’s what frightened the NATO officials and Pentagon— that farmers and miners could tear apart the Ukraine military, though heavily outnumbered 3-4:1.

              The Ukies are flirting with a devastating result if they listen to the US and Nato and attack Donbass.

      • Schiff just wants to please his Ukrainian sugar daddies like Igor Pasternak, who held a fundraiser for him back in 2013.
        https://original.antiwar.com/justin/2017/03/21/adam-schiff-grifter-racketeer-warmonger/

        From that article:
        “Pasternak raises thousands for Schiff, and Schiff raises millions for Pasternak. It’s a sweet deal all around.

        Schiff bloviates that his campaign to restart the cold war with Russia is an ideological crusade: “We are involved in a new battle of ideas,” he avers. “Not Communism versus capitalism, but authoritarianism versus democracy.” Yet this is about capitalism – crony capitalism of the sort that enriches both Schiff and Pasternak. As Major General Smedley Butler put it in 1935: “War is a racket.” And Schiff is one of the biggest racketeers in Washington.”

      Some representatives that voted yes are probably afraid that to vote “no” means you are a Russian “sympathizer” which makes you eligible for Type 1 FISA surveillance.

      Cyberattacks from Russia? None from China? Lots of internet security firms that could help Ukraine out if they’re having problems.

        Stay with me here. The Globalists do not ever, ever, want us to be friends with Russia. That is there worst nightmare. The Globalists are just what their name entails. They want world wide control and power.
        The United States and Russia are probably more alike than any other two countries on Earth. Both majority Christian. Both Nationalistic, Both predominantly white. Both have tremendous amounts of natural resources and mineral wealth. And, both have the most powerful military’s on Earth.
        If the United States and Russia became friends, this would end their dream of Global control and domination.
        But, they let Russia alone for a while. Even make friends with them. I.E. The Russian reset, Uranium 1, etc. While they took care of other matters. Release the animals from the zoos in the mid-east and take over Europe. Take over of The United States was all planned. Planned for years. Once they took over the United States, they could sell the entire country to Russia. But….She lost…everything came crashing down because, she lost.
        Then the President made gestures that Russia could be our friends. Another plan had to be made. Now, make Russia our enemy. Make them our enemy to eliminate Donald Trump. To destroy Donald Trump and his family. To gain control back. Trillions were at stake.
        I could go into more detail, but to make a long story short, Russia is not our enemy. The Globalists are our enemy. And this Ukraine stuff is to keep Russian antagonized, keep the American people believing Russia is our enemy, and number one. To keep that money flow moving.
        There is absolutely no reason for the United States to be there. None.

    Sen Grassley explains the rationale behind the referral to charge Christopher Steele with a crime, w/Stuart Varney.

    01:47 to 03:05
    Concise, at 02:57 “Sen Graham and I have suspicions that he (Steele) may have lied. Just like Flynn lied, and lying to the FBI is a crime, if it’s a crime against Flynn, then it oughta be a crime against Steele.”

    There you have it, straight from the mouth of the man who conceived the idea. No need now to attribute hidden agendas.
    No fluff. No subterfuge. No sleight-of-hand. No hidden plots. Not out to trick the FBI.

    Just facts.
    And the truth.

    It baffles me that only these few are concerned about a $20 trillion debt. If interest rates were to rise to even a modest 5% the interest alone would be a trillion per year. I hope that somebody in Washington has a plan that is not obvious to a dope like me.

      The stock market has added $8T since last year. My assumption. A layman’s supposition only, is that our debt may increase for awhile, but if an additional $4T to $6T is brought back into the country from repatriation and additional business investment in addition to that, I would think that there will be a great amount of increased tax revenue.

      But I could be wrong. So, I guess we’ll just have to see.

    Douglas Campbell, the Uranium One witness that gave testimony to 3 Congressional Committees today, was told by the FBI that his info about Russia buying our uranium and that Russia was supplying Iran was included in 2 of Obama’s PDB’s.

    SOS Clinton was on the distribution list for the PDB’s. What email was used to deliver them to her?

      I think part of Obama’s problem was that he was too much of a wimp to stand up to other countries, and didn’t want to show that he had no clue or ability to be President. So he essentially bribed countries (for example Iran, North Korea, Russia) with either money or in Russia’s case, uranium, to keep those countries from publicly opposing him. That way Obama could look like a successful president when he was anything but. And he hoped that Hillary would get elected so that nobody would find out about his incompetence.

      That’s more of Sessions doing “nuttin”.

      DOJ is getting “tented” and “smoked”, quietly.

      People leaving for personal reasons sends a message to other weasels that they,too, can cut and run before the handcuffs and jumpsuits are displayed.

      Once gone, they will be “leveraged” by investigators. They will be alone, vulnerable and easy to break.

      “Personal reasons”….that’s spook-speak for “lawyering up”

      ====================================
      Will DOJ leaker David Laufman be next to leave after #Comey?

      Mike Cernovich
      May 9, 2017

      Obama holdover and donor David Laufman is the source of several national security leaks, Mike Cernovich can exclusively report. David Laufman, Chief of Counterintelligence, has all classified information regarding espionage pass by his desk.

      The leaks have wrongly been blamed on the FBI, sources tell me, leading to a morale issue with the agency.

      “The FBI prides itself as being seen as apolitical,” one source told me, “and are frustrated that they are being accused of playing politics.”

      “DOJ has been completely politicized by Obama’s appointees,” a member of the intelligence community informed me, “leading to major conflicts with the FBI.”

      Laufman, who had donated to Obama’s presidential campaign fund in past election cycles, was the DOJ official who investigated Hillary Clinton in what was promised to be an independent investigation. How an Obama donor could be trusted to investigate Obama’s heir apparent was never explored by the fake news media.

      Even worse is that as Chief of Counterintelligence, Laufman has the power to kill any investigations into leaks, a power he has been exercising.

      Another source told me Attorney General Jeff Sessions must “clear out” Obama holdovers like Laufman if the Trump administration expects the leaks to stop.
