      “Communism may be, at some level, a system of ideas – but it has also been an interlocking system of organizations, intelligence networks, factories, parties, banks, governments and paramilitary organizations. To be a communist is only superficially about belief. At its essence, it is about power and imperialism. If they do not follow Marx or Lenin to the letter, it does not mean they are not communists. It only means that the new religion and its empire are yet evolving.“

        To the contrary Putin is taking Russia back to its Christian roots. The Russian Orthodox Church is resurgent. Putin resists US hegemony as he should. We have largely destroyed societies everywhere we intervened militarily over the last 20 years. Trump campaigned against these interventions and won because many Americans are tired of endless wars. We’ve spent $5-6 trillion on all our wars in the Middle East & Afghanistan. What did the American people gain except for many dead and wounded soldiers and trillions spent that we had to borrow?

    Just a reminder that former Australian Ambassador to UK, Alexander Downer (who set up Papadopoulos in London to kickstart the fabricated muh Trump Russia story), was on Huawei’s Board from 2011 to 2014 – a period convered by the indictments.

    At the time, Downer (a former Foreign Minister for 11 years before joining Huawei) lobbied our Australian Government for Huawei to build our next-generation broadband network, but was refused out of security concerns about China building it.

    Papadopoulos wrote this tweet earlier today, saying that Downer asked him a lot of questions about what he thought then-Candidate Trump would do in relation to Huawei, if elected President:

    https://mobile.twitter.com/GeorgePapa19/status/1090029397480943616?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Etweet

    Things may start getting VERY messy for Downer! I hope so. Working with his buddy former MI6 Christopher Steele to try and destroy Candidate Trump is despicable.

        The whole Papa story is quite odd. He regularly drops pretty interesting nuggets on Twitter about some of the key players, like Joseph Mifsud.

        I get the feeling he’s not telling us the full truth of who else he was working for and what he was doing, while also working on the Trump campaign. Theories include he was a plant in the campaign; he works for Israeli intelligence, or his wife is actually his handler.

        But hey, perhaps he really was just an innocent, gullible young man, who got lined up by the Deep State as an easy target to help take down Candidate/President Trump! Regardless, he & his wife are certainly entertaining!

      More info on Downer and Huawei:

      ‘Huawei Australia is the second China-related board that Howard government foreign minister Mr Downer has been appointed to recently. He is a director of Resourcehouse, the miner Clive Palmer wanted to list on the Hong Kong stock exchange.”

      http://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=114132

      And Wikipoo:

      “Also in 2008, Downer discussed the possibility of working as a United Nations envoy to Cyprus with the UN Secretary-General to help revive the peace process.[45] The appointment received the support of the Rudd government, via the Foreign Minister Stephen Smith,[46] and it took effect on 14 July 2008.[47] He resigned in February 2014 to take up the post of Australia’s High Commissioner in London.

      He has had a number of board appointments, including the Advisory Board of British strategic intelligence and advisory firm Hakluyt & Company,[48] Merchant Bankers Cappello Capital Corp.,[49] the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra,[50] Huawei in Australia,[51] and the board of Lakes Oil.[52] Downer has said that Huawei should not be considered a potential national security risk.[53] Downer’s comments are at odds with an October 2012 US congressional panel’s findings that have deemed Huawei a security threat to the US and other nations.[54]”

          Hakluyt was also founded by 3 former MI6 agents, and Stefan Halper has strong connections to it!

          Downer, as Foreign Minister, donated $25 million in our taxpayers’ money to the Clinton Foundation in 2006, with total donations by our Government now at least $150 million since then.

          He’s up to his armpits on this, but has largely avoided scrutiny by our media so far.

        Hi Mr T. There has been a deep naivety by our Government towards China for 30 years.

        China is our biggest trading partner (e.g. resources, higher education), with USA our 3rd biggest. Without China, our economy collapses. It’s a stupidly dangerous position to have placed our economy.

        The Government downplays questions about if we’re ever forced to choose between USA (our strongest ally) or China (biggest trading partner), who do we side with?

        Our car manufacturers collapsed in recent years because they were all heavily unionised, with workers on extortionately high wages + benefits, and subsidised by taxpayers. So, to cover high labour costs, cars were too expensive, and couldn’t compete with imports. Unions refused to negotiate more productive worker arrangements, so manufacturers gave up and pulled out of Australia.

        Plus, we’ve been saddled with insane carbon tax/renewable energy policies for 10 years, which has literally doubled power prices in a decade, taking us from the cheapest power to most expensive in the world (while exporting cheap coal to China!), making energy-dependent manufacturing industries difficult to sustain.

        And we’re still in the fraudulent Paris Climate Agreement scam. It’s a total mess.

    “Authorities in Taiwan are drafting a list of Chinese technology companies that could present security concerns for the government, in the wake of a series of measures excluding Huawei from bidding on the next generation of 5G mobile network infrastructure.

    The list will seek to limit the use of Chinese-manufactured telecoms equipment by government departments and institutions that could post a security threat, the Nikkei Asian Review cited Taiwan’s cybersecurity chief Jyan Hong-wei as saying.”

    Further evidence that this is all a big misdirection thing: the Dems have been screaming hysterically about Russia,(look! squirrel!)and all the time it was they who were colluding with China, all in the name of CASH. In other words, everybody has looked at this whole plot as just power-mad, corrupt, insane Democrats hating Trump and wanting to hold on to power for ideological reasons or “small potatoes” graft, but this is big international espionage at work, by big money globalists all around the world. Trump is the one honest, uncorrupted man in all of this. I keep coming back to Brennan as being at the core of all of this plot, too…..

    When the US bombed the Chinese Embassy in Yugoslavia I was enroute to Bejing, and didn’t know it happened. Some friends who work for Air China met me at the airport, and invited me to dinner. I asked if we could eat at the employees trstaurant because I was tired, and I knew it is actually very good. Well, some people at the next were talking about the bombing, and so my hosts gave me the story. So I was staying at a condo near the US Embassy, but the area was ringed with Wu Jing, which I had never seen before. These are like riot police, but more serious. Crowds were chanting “down with the US” and “eye for an eye”. I waited until early morning to try to get thru. I noticed yhe demonstrators were getting on busses. Then all went quiet for a few hours. The media relentlessly broadcast closeup video of the dead Chinese ifficials, with some pretty strong talk about payback. Then it all started up again. I had the impression the entire city was in an uproar. Mostly I just watched grom my window, paying the neighbor’s kid to go buy me a cup of coffee from time to time. Then I took a can out of the area. It was totally normal. I asked the driver about the bombing. Sure, he’d heard about it. But wasn’t that last week? Well, he says, if it was dangerous they should have gotten the hell out of there. And that was, in fact, the general ( off the record) opinion.
