Of Russians, Soviets, and Collusion

Perhaps the most troubling aspect of the present political climate is the general acceptance, by a huge number of Americans, that Russia and/or Vladimir Putin “colluded” to rig the 2016 presidential election for Donald Trump. I don’t dismiss any “conspiracy theory,” because most of them are borne out of our systemic corruption.

However, the Russian “collusion” conspiracy theory is so absurd, so absent any evidence, so contrary to any rational notion of common sense, that it must be confronted for what it is. It is state propaganda, one of the few “conspiracy theories” ever devised by and for the state, and not in opposition to it. It has been swallowed by many otherwise astute leftists, simply because of the abject hatred they feel for Donald Trump. Because of this visceral enmity, they have become willing to believe anything negative about him, with the obvious hope that something, anything, will make him go away and disappear back into the recesses of the One Percent.

The “collusion” theory is based upon the very real, very provable campaign on the part of the Democratic National Committee to deny Bernie Sanders, the  clear favorite of primary voters, the party’s nomination. All of this was documented via internal party memos released by Julian Assange and Wikileaks. Somehow, this has been twisted completely around, so that the actual villains here- the DNC and the corrupt candidate (Hillary Clinton) they “colluded” for, have become victims.

Donald Trump, meanwhile, protested the DNC’s “collusion” for Clinton and against Sanders a lot more vocally than Sanders- the actual victim here- ever did. Sanders, in fact, has now publicly supported the ridiculous Russian “collusion” scenario himself! It’s hard to imagine a more concrete example of the theatrical and insincere nature of American politics. And yet, through nonstop promotion by the mainstream media, DNC collusion has become Russian collusion, and the beneficiary has been changed from Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump.

In my book Hidden History, I featured an entire section on voting fraud in America. The late Collier brothers documented this thoroughly decades ago in their book Votescam. The same “journalists” who have ignored the real and troubling evidence of voter fraud, perpetrated by home grown authorities and not Russians- are the loudest voices shouting that American voters were “robbed” by the dastardly Russians. Even if this were true- which it demonstrably is not- understand that they are irate that voters were “robbed” of a President Hillary Clinton.

There was even a high-profile unnatural death associated with the DNC’s corrupt theft of its nomination from Sanders. Seth Rich, a young DNC staffer, was all but explicitly named by Julian Assange as the individual who leaked the information exposing DNC- not Russian- subterfuge. Rich was gunned down in Washington, D.C. by a still unknown assailant or assailants. He was not robbed, and there have been a host of curious questions raised about his death. Of course, all of these questions were raised by “conspiracy theorists,” not professional journalists.

When Sean Hannity- of all people- conducted an extremely rare investigative report on the Rich murder, there was a nuclear response from the establishment. Fox News summarily apologized, and Seth Rich’s family threatened to sue the network for…I suppose trying to seek the truth about their son’s murder.

It has been sad or hilarious, depending upon one’s perspective, to watch the left’s reaction to this Russian “collusion” fantasy. Keith Olbermann, former ESPN wannabe comedian turned serious “journalist,” has become truly apoplectic, even mentally unstable over the story. In one deranged rant last year, he shouted about how America is “at war” with the Russians. While this country has been at war perpetually for most of its existence, we have never yet been at war with the Russians. Evidently, Olbermann and his ilk really, really want that.

Up until Vladimir Putin rose to power in Russia, the establishment left collectively held a very different attitude. During the reign of the Soviet Union, when Russia undeniably took over many different sovereign nations and swallowed territory as greedily as the Nazis, these same leftists would have been distraught at any notion of an armed conflict with them. They supported cooperation and detente. This was a wise attitude, in my view. So why, at this point in time, when the Soviet Union has long been dismantled, and Russia is struggling to become a more democratic country, are they such a threat to America, and the world?

Donald Trump has been lambasted for simply saying we should try to get along with Russia. He was raked over the coals by some good people for advocating that Russia be allowed back into the G-7 summit. The left has even taken on the mantle of those they have long demonized, with their own guilt-by-association tactics. I honestly think the majority of mainstream “liberals” today would fully support a new Un-American Activities Committee, as long as it was geared towards rooting out “Russian” influence in our government, and ultimately removing Trump from office.

I have seen the word “traitor” thrown around cavalierly, directed at Trump because of this imaginary, entirely fictional Russian “collusion” story. These same leftists would have blanched at anyone, anywhere, calling Barack Obama a “traitor” for any reason. They probably would have instinctively responded with cries of “racism.”

All of this is not a defense of Donald Trump. I shouldn’t have to stipulate that, but it is necessary in today’s fractured political climate. Trump is many things; arrogant and juvenile beyond caricature, crude and superficial, to name just a few. But he is not a Russian “agent.” He was not elected because the Russians somehow magically “hacked” the election. Why he was permitted to be elected, by our corrupt masters, is a legitimate question to ask. But it is our own corrupt elite that control the polls in this country; not Vladimir Putin and the Russians.

Donald Trump has become not only the biggest lightning rod this country has ever seen, he has become the conduit through which all information about any political issue must travel. Every issue now is impacted by how one views Trump. Those supporters who irrationally cling to fantasies that he’s playing some kind of super chess not comprehended by mere mortals are willing to applaud anything he says or does, no matter how much it contradicts his campaign rhetoric.

Those who hate Trump, however- and he generates more hate than any human being ever has in this country outside of Adolph Hitler- are just as willing to believe any charge leveled against him, regardless of evidence. Trump is the dividing line in the American body politic now. His presidency is creating a stronger, but just as phony partisanship between the devotees of what Huey Long called HiPapaLowem and LowPapaHighem. He is like Goldstein in Orwell’s 1984; generating far more than any two minutes of hate, and representing to others what is at best loyal opposition, and at worst perhaps something just as imaginary as Orwell’s character.

Donald Trump should be soundly criticized for allowing his entire administration to be overrun with the swamp creatures he promised to “drain.” He should be blasted for failing to keep his countless campaign promises. But attributing our very own, domestic voter fraud to imaginary “Russians” is a convenient way to avoid confronting just one aspect of our massive corruption. Donald Trump may be controlled by dark forces, but whoever is pulling his strings, it’s not “Russia.”

  1. This is 100% bullshit. Your “hatred of Donald Trump” premise is flimsy at best. If you want to go down that road, look at your wholesale swallowing of the pizzagate “scandal” which turned out to be false. Looks like your hatered of Hillary Clinton sent you into a blind rage and caused you to go on the attack.

    As you know, some nut opened fire at the pizza place, based on the garbage that was peddled by Alex Jones and repeated in blogs like this one.

    But why should you care? You can just go on to the next topic and when all else fails, enlighten us about scandals that only you and some select others know about.

    No one died at Sandy Hook, right? What about Parkland? Nah! The lame stream media’s at it again, right? Those crisis actors that were hired sure were convincing. Who hired them, Hillary Clinton?

    Maybe you can give us the real story.


    • Pizzagate has not been proven “false.” It has never been investigated, and like all the other child sex scandals, is not about to be exposed by establishment sources. Read my article about Sandy Hook- the official story is impossible. The Russian “collusion” story has nothing to do with my “hatred” for Hillary Clinton. If you’ve read my work, you know that I don’t fall into the phony left-right pardigm. Clinton is a part of the corrupt elite, as are virtually all the leading politicians, including all Bushes and countless Republicans. But I do appreciate you reading and taking the time to comment.

  2. Dear Mr Cook,

    If you truly believe that Donald Jeffries is spreading disinformation, you might want to expend the effort required to learn about some of the issues Mr Jeffries addresses in his posts.

    • Ralph,

      He’s got the burden of proof, and he’s not proving anything. But I get it, divisiveness is the in thing right now and everyone has an ax to grind. So, have it your way. I agree with you. You’re right and I’m wrong. Feel better? Good.

      The only way to really understand one’s motivations is to dig deep within and see what conflicts you are still dealing with from childhood. Many, if not most of us, are still seeking parental love and approval we didn’t get, so we blame the world for that deficiency.

      Good and evil probably do not exist. Look at dependent originination: If you had the exact same genetic makeup and the same environmental influences as person x, would you have acted differently under a given circumstance? Unlikely.

      The point is, we’re all connected and quite a bit like each other. Your interests are my interests. There really is no difference between you, or me, or Donald.

      I say all this because divisiveness is really delusion. We all need the courage to face ourselves.

      I like you and Donald.

      Happy Father’s Day to you and Donald. I really mean it.

  3. I just made a fortune investing in cryptocurrency! Retiring at 43; traveling the world! Awesome!

    I’m not telling you anymore, because you need to figure it out for yourself.

    Love it!


  4. He has to get his “people” approved and the FBI actually does the lie detector test that goes along with the security checks. I understand this is were the hold up is. That means there are a ton of Obama hold overs that can’t keave there post unless they do something wrong or can get the insecurity and approved. Also they keep throwing global or worldly problems at him makes it harder to get things done. He has delivered more then any other politician has. We do need help and I do tweet at him let’s go with the vaccination, chemtrail, GMO problems. Americans have real problems and these crazies are fighting for illegal immigrants and saying the hell with the American tax paying citizen! Invited Obama x2. I believed in him. He fooled me 🙄🤦‍♀️ I had to take the chance on Trump I knew what I was getting from Killary. And Trump is doing a lot better then anyone in the past 25 years! 🙄😇🙏 nice website. I’m going to purchase the book!

  5. Francois Clemmons

    I saw a really funny Bowery Boys movie the other day. Slip Mahoney put a quarter in a slot machine and three lemons came out!

    You should have seen the look on his face! Hilarious!

  6. Today a lady called up “Washington Journal” on C-SPAN and said that she was sure that Russia hacked our 2016 election, but that she was glad because it prevented Hillary from being president. She thanked Russia. The ends justify the means, right?

  7. The lady caller was just as uninformed as most Americans are. The Russians didn’t rig our elections, which have been corrupt for a very time, due to the chicanery of our own horrific leaders. The DNC did, however, rig the primaries against Bernie Sanders, as was documented in their own words. But no one on the left, least of all Sanders himself, cares in the least about this. Instead, they have taken the person who benefited from the actual fraud, Hillary Clinton, and made her an imaginary victim of the Russians.

  8. Trump vs. the Traitors on Capitol Hill

    The knives are out for Donald Trump on Capitol Hill, Washington as they will be in London and Paris, the capital cities of the FUKUS Axis (France-UK-US) which ably delivered us Iraq, Libya – the country with the highest Human Development Index in Africa now divided and crawling with terrorists – and a copy-paste in Syria. Sterling policies with sterling results, the responsibility of a collection of Anglo-Irish fuddy-duddies who have one single goal – feathering their own nests and consolidating their own positions at the expense of the people they are supposed to represent.

    Pry behind the scenes of Capitol Hill and what does one find? A bunch of professional politicians, some of whom are serious and earnest to deliver public service but the jeers behind my back as I face the keyboard already show what the People think: collectively they are a bunch of self-seeking good-for-nothings who would sell their own grandmother or pimp their own daughters if they thought it would bring them personal gain.

    Whores and cuckolds

    Now they have their knives out for Donald Trump. And why? Because he listened to Vladimir Putin, because he listened to common sense and because he made his statements based on the truth and not upon cajolery, lies peddled by political skallywags, sexed-up half-truths paraded by Russophobic whores and cuckolds permeating the woodwork of the FUKUS Establishment.

    Now Trump has been accused of a lot of things – being sexist/mysogenist, racist, homophobic and the like; his foreign policy got off to an abominable start with the illegal bombing of Syria occasioning the murder of innocent citizens based on hearsay and supposition. But let us dig deeper. Trump is in essence a businessman who took advantage of his head-start in life making himself a billionaire. He did not squander it all away on a booze-fest lying on his back with a bottle of brandy by his side. True, he does not read much and probably has the idea that due to his success he knows it all, hence he does not pay due attention to his aides and screws up when he meets the Queen.

    Whatever his shortcomings, and we all have them, these are questions of opinion, to which everyone has a basic right, they are questions of character which belong to the man himself and his family and his policies are American questions for the citizens of the USA. Nobody else. When it comes to foreign policy, due to the fact that Washington sticks its nose into everyone else’s business, it is a question for all of us and here we, non-US citizens, indeed have a word to say.

    I would prefer a US President who is prepared to listen to common sense and follow his instincts than one sprung from the cesspool of professional politicians, deviants, traitors, nutcases and social climbers of the ilk we find on Capitol Hill. And common sense tells us that if the US electoral system is so weak and porous that a handful of hackers can fix the result, then what the hell have those on Capitol Hill been doing for generations?

    Common sense tells us that “the Russians (Kremlin)” would not conduct a poisoning campaign in the United Kingdom just before the World Cup was due to be held, common sense tells us that Novochol made in Soviet times was produced in Uzbekhistan, common sense tells us that a military-grade nerve agent which kills in seconds does not see three of four victims recover. Common sense tells us that two and two do not add up. Common sense tells us that London is quick to jump to conclusions. Remember the murder of Jill Dandy? Remember they blamed it on “a Serb”? Then it turned out to be a stalker, a Brit.

    And common sense tells us that as President Trump himself has said, there is another side to the Crimea story. The more the western media reiterate the claim that Crimea was “annexed” by Russia, the greater the conviction that they are trying to create a “case” by lies as they tried to do in Iraq, and what a miserable failure that was.

    How can Russia annex itself? And common sense tells us to look at the history book. When Ukraine and Russia were sister nations inside the Soviet Union (with 13 other Republics), Kruschyov transferred Crimea, Russia to Ukraine. When the Union dissolved, Crimea now cosmetically belonged to Ukraine but historically belonged to Russia, its citizens being in their huge majority, Russians, who voted to return to Russia when the Legislative Assembly of the Crimea Republic held an election (after the illegal ousting of the democratically elected President, Yanukovich).

    So I prefer a President who listens to common sense. I prefer a President who is prepared to engage with Russia and to form a relationship with Russia, knowing that Russia is not an enemy of the United States and its allies, but an advanced nation, a powerful partner which respects international law and which complains against the West simply because it is the west which flouts international law, which lies and uses bullying as its modus operandi, hiding behind terrorist organizations which it uses to foster policy.

    I prefer a US President who sits down with Russia, talks through the issues and concludes that the West was wrong in Iraq and Russia was right, the West was wrong in Libya and Russia was right, the West was wrong in Syria and Russia was right, that the West is wrong in Crimea and Russia is right, that the West has no evidence against Russia in the MH17 case and in the Skripal case, just hearsay and hysteria. Accusing Russia was wrong and Russia in its defence was right.

    I prefer a US President who behaves like a Statesman, engaging and listening and solving problems in a pragmatic, down-to-earth and sensible way, to a hypocritical, treacherous political animal whose strings are pulled by a bunch of political perverts on Capitol Hill. Fifty years of history dictated by Washington have led to what?

    Just take a look at the world we live in. Places which used to be peaceful are riven with division, violence, hatred, terrorism, half the world is unsafe, tensions are growing…at a time when we face common challenges, such as lack of water (about to hit us square in the face), new multi-resistant bacteria, and the challenges posed by digitalizatiopn, automation, robotization which see thousands of jobs disappear daily; the challenges posed by increasing longevity, creating stress on social welfare services and pensions. These are the issues we should be discussing, real issues for men and women who we expect to lead us and represent us, not a gaggle of po-faced ninnies hiding on Capitol Hill calling names to those who are prepared to sit down and listen.

    So Trump is not a traitor. In his approach he is doing more for his country than those on Capitol Hill have done for the last hundred-plus years. Meaning Capitol Hill is what exactly?
