French Presidential Elections: Fillon May Drop Out Paving The Way For Marine Le Pen, UN Braces As U.S. Detente With Russia Upsets Balance Of Power

French Presidential Election Crisis: Party Leaders Consider "Plan B" After Police Search Fillon Office

It is looking increasingly likely, that Francois Fillon who until recently was considered the favorite for the French presidential election in the April/May presidential election, may drop out leaving the frontrunner challenger spot to Marine Le Pen in limbo. 
Shortly after news broke that the presidential candidate may have paid out as much as 1 million euros to his wife and children - more than initially alleged - in an ever growing graft scandal, French police searched Francois Fillon's office in parliament as an inquiry into alleged fake work by his wife threatened his campaign and party leaders began to consider a 'Plan B' without him. Fillon had been favorite to win the presidency for the conservative Republicans party until a week ago, when it was reported that his wife Penelope had drawn hundreds of thousands of euros in pay from state funds without doing any work. 
Fillon on Tuesday declared that he was a victim of a ‘professional’ plot aimed at derailing his bid to become France’s next president. He only failed to mention Vladimir Putin and the farce would have been complete. 
“To my knowledge, in the history of the Fifth Republic, this situation has never occurred” he during a conference in Paris. “Never with less than three months to go before a presidential election has an operation of such magnitude and this professional been staged with the aim of getting rid of a candidate.” 
According to Reuters citing the latest opinion poll conducted on Tuesday, 76% of voters were not convinced of his professed innocence. With the inquiry gathering pace, party officials began to wonder whether, and how, they might replace him.

"The way things are going, I think we might have to quickly trigger a plan B," one lawmaker on condition of anonymity told Reuters.
"Plan B. Lots of people are thinking, reflecting and working on it but no one will speak openly about it," said another influential Republicans member of parliament.
Allegations of pay for fake work, published in satirical weekly Le Canard Enchaine, have cast a doubt on the squeaky-clean image that helped Fillon win his party's primary election over rivals who had faced legal issues in the past. In an amusing tangent, Reuters writes that "the inquiry into whether the hundreds of thousands of euros his wife received in salary was a misuse of taxpayer's money also highlights a key plank of his campaign - that the state spends too much and half a million public sector jobs should go." Almost as if a politician was... hypocritical.

What Reuters failed to add is that those "sickened" by Fillon's conduct may just end up voting for Le Pen, whose election would most likely be the final nail in the Eurozone's coffin.
Meanwhile, even though Fillon has said he would step down as presidential candidate should he be put under formal investigation, it is unclear how The Republicans would find a replacement for him. He was chosen last November in the party's first ever primary contest, so there is no precedent to look to if he quits with less than three months to go until the election. The scandal has coincided with the Socialist Party's choice last weekend of a hard-left figure, Benoit Hamon, as its presidential candidate - a move also seen as helping Macron.

President Donald Trump’s outreach to Russia is reverberating through the United Nations, where U.S. allies worry that a partnership between Washington and Moscow could undermine a historic balance of power dating to the early days of the Cold War.
For decades, the five veto-wielding members of the 15-nation Security Council have fallen into two camps -- France, the U.K. and the U.S., referred to as the P3, on one side and Russia and China on the other.
Just days into his presidency, Trump is upsetting all that.
The result could reshape the world body’s response on conflicts from Syria to Ukraine and its approach to thorny decisions such as whether to deploy peacekeepers or condemn a country for human-rights violations. While the five permanent members can always veto resolutions or decisions, they usually try to win majority support from other Security Council members for their cause instead. That’s where the new American president’s approach comes in.

Foreign diplomats “will be flying blind” with Trump, said Richard Gowan, a fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations. “Many expect him to work more closely with Russia but are not sure how far this will go.”

Under President Barack Obama’s administration, the Russia-U.S. relationship soured to the point that the Security Council’s work was largely paralyzed. Samantha Power, Obama’s UN ambassador, and her Russian counterpart, Vitaly Churkin, feuded repeatedly over the deteriorating humanitarian situation in Syria.

The UN is already bracing to be on defense because Haley is taking her seat with support from a president and a U.S. Congress furious over a Security Council resolution in December critical of Israel’s settlements policy.
The Obama administration’s unexpected decision to abstain from the resolution allowed it to pass, and U.S. lawmakers from both parties have fumed ever since. In her Jan. 18 confirmation hearing, Haley called the vote one of the body’s most “outrageous.” Members of Congress are proposing to cut or freeze funding for the UN as a result.
Asked about potential cuts in UN funding, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said last week that the president wants to be a “strong steward” of tax dollars. The U.S. provides about $8 billion a year in contributions to the UN through the State Department and other agencies, or about a fifth of the world body’s total budget of $40 billion.
On Jan. 4, new UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called Trump and had a “very positive discussion,” according to his spokesman. In one of his few tweets directed at the UN, Trump last month said, “The United Nations has such great potential, but right now it is just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time. So sad.”
Haley’s biggest challenge is that she’s part of an administration that carries a deep distrust toward multilateral institutions like the UN, said Reva Goujon, an analyst at Stratfor, the geopolitical advisory company.

Iran In Violation Of UN Resolution, Netanyahu Urges Rethink Of 'Failed' Nuclear Deal, Shock Poll: Marine Le Pen Set To Receive Most Votes In First Round,

Iran tests ballistic missile in violation of UN resolution

  • The medium-range ballistic missile was tested on Sunday and exploded after 630 miles, a US official said on Monday
  • The test was carried out from a site near Semnan, 140 miles east of Tehran
  • The last time this type of missile was test launched was in July 2016
  • Iran defense minister Brigadier Gen Hossein Dehqan said in September that such missiles would be produced by the country.
  • President Donald Trump has said he will stop Tehran's missile program
  • A UN resolution approving the nuclear deal 'called upon' Iran to refrain from work on ballistic missiles for up to eight years

Under the UN resolution approving the nuclear deal that was made in 2015, Iran is 'called upon' to refrain from work on ballistic missiles designed to deliver nuclear weapons for up to eight years.
Critics of the deal have said the language is ambiguous and does not make compliance obligatory, while Tehran says the missiles it has tested are not specifically designed to carry nuclear warheads.

This month, Iranian lawmakers approved plans to increase military spending, including expanding the long-range missile programme.
On Sunday, Trump spoke with King Salman of Saudi Arabia, and the two 'agreed on the importance of rigorously enforcing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran and of addressing Iran's destabilizing regional activities,' the White House said in a statement.
Launching a ballistic missile could fall under 'destabilizing regional activities'. 
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday he planned to push Trump to renew sanctions against Iran during a visit to Washington next month.

In what is being seen as a challenge to US President Donald Trump, Iran tested a 4,000 kilometer range (2,500 miles) ballistic missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead, US officials said Monday.

Terming the test a “flagrant breach” of UN Security Council resolutions, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promptly demanded the reimposition of sanctions against Iran and said he would discuss with Trump a reevaluation of the “entire failed nuclear accord” that the Obama Administration and other P5+1 countries agreed with Iran in 2015.

Netanyahu, who is set to meet Trump at the White House next month, said he would urge a resumption of sanctions against Iran for missile testing, and “additional sanctions against [Iranian] terrorism.” He would also discuss with Trump the “handling of this whole failed nuclear accord.”

The nuclear deal, intended to thwart Iran’s rogue nuclear program and championed by President Barack Obama as a “game-changer,” has been consistently castigated by Netanyahu as “a bad deal” that actually paves the way for an Iranian nuclear arsenal.
Asked about the missile test, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said they were looking into the report.
“We’re aware that Iran fired that missile. We’re looking into the exact nature of it,” Spicer said.
“My number one priority is to dismantle the disastrous deal with Iran,” Trump said at the conference in March 2016, calling the controversial agreement signed between the P5+1 world powers and Tehran “catastrophic for America, for Israel and for the whole of the Middle East.” Later in the speech he called to “at the very least” implement the deal that lifted international sanctions on Iran in exchange for it curbing its nuclear program.
Since Trump’s election in November, his advisers have signaled that he would not unilaterally walk away from the agreement unless Tehran violated its terms.
Along with Israel, Saudi Arabia has been one of the Middle Eastern countries most opposed to the nuclear deal.
During their call on Sunday, Trump and King Salman also committed to “address Iran’s destabilizing regional activities” and reaffirmed their commitment to the US-Saudi Arabia strategic alliance.

MARINE Le Pen will lead the French presidential elections after the first round of voting, according to a new poll.

The Front National chief is set receive more than a quarter of the vote, ahead of Thatcher admirer , who is on 22 per cent, and former economy minister Emmanuel Macron, who is on 21 per cent, the Kantar Sofres one-point poll revealed. 
Benoît Hamon, a staunch Socialist and the surprise winner of Sunday’s left-wing primary, is set to win 15 per cent of the first-round presidential vote.
But despite being guaranteed a place in the second round of the election  is set to lose the presidential race to one of her two rivals.

According to the poll, published by Le Figaro, hop against Mr Fillon, the Front National chief would get 40 per cent of the vote while Mr Fillon would win 60 per cent.
And against Mr Macron, Mrs Le Pen would win 35 per cent of the vote while the left's "rising star" would take 65 per cent. 
Under the unlikely scenario of a showdown between Mr Fillon and Mr Macron, the rebellious socialist will win the presidential race with 58 per cent of the total vote.

A climactic showdown between Hungary and George Soros is rapidly approaching. 
Three weeks after Hungary announced it would launch a crackdown on all George Soros-funded non-governmental organizations, the country's foreign minister doubled down, and told RT that the activities of NGOs funded by George Soros in Hungary are “anti-democratic,” as they want to undermine the government in Budapest.

Soros “would like this government to fail, he would like to kind of fire this government because he doesn’t like our approach, doesn’t like our policies,” Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto told RT’s Sophie Shevardnadze. “We find it very anti-democratic if someone from abroad would like to influence Hungarian voters on whom to vote for,” he asserted. Several days before the interview, the Hungarian parliament began to discuss a bill allowing authorities to audit NGO executives and request detailed reports on their foreign donations.

As reported earlier in January, the chairman of the ruling Fidesz party Szilard Nemeth said that “these organizations must be pushed back with all available tools, and I think they must be swept out, and now I believe the international conditions are right for this with the election of the new president [Donald Trump].” Last September, Nemeth, who is also the deputy chairman of Hungary’s National Security Committee, submitted a list of 22 NGOs “connected to the Soros network for the purpose of having these organizations screened.”

Earth Signs:

Millions of dead sardines wash up on a beach in Chile: Dead fish as far as the eye can see!

Translated from Spanish

A new marine life disaster in Chile as millions of dead sardines washed up dead last Thursday in the beach of the locality of Aucho in Quemchi.

The find has attracted the attention of the inhabitants of this coastal sector who did not hesitate to approach to the edge of the place to verify the situation.

Yohana Rodríguez, a tourist entrepreneur, said it was some visitors who first noticed the fish sighting on an entire stretch of the beach and intensified on Friday morning.

"The tourists found the surprise of this stranding of sardines and today we went to see how big it was and of course it was a lot of small sardines," explained the local entrepreneur.
The population of Auchao added that "if what was catching our attention days ago is that it was getting too much seagull".

The unusual phenomenon is already in the knowledge of the port captaincy of Quemchi that moved to the beach of Aucho to inform of this strange event in the coasts of the place.

Pritzker declares fisheries disasters… Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker today determined there are commercial fishery failures for nine salmon and crab fisheries in Alaska, California and Washington… these fisheries experienced sudden and unexpected large decreases in fish stock biomass or loss of access due to unusual ocean and climate conditions.
Alaska Journal of Commerce, Jan 18, 2017: [T]he pink salmon… catch sank to dismal lows… In 2016, the pink salmon harvests… came in woefully under forecast and stumped biologists… The total state harvest was the smallest since the late 1970s State and federal scientists interviewed directly following the poor pink salmon season each emphasized that they were mystified… “I am relieved to see that the Department of Commerce [is]acknowledging the dire situation…” said Sen. Lisa Murkowski.
Spokesman Review, Jan 23, 2017: [T]he region’s fishing communities… have suffered through several years of lower-than-expected catch… “the past few years our salmon runs have been hit hard and dropped to alarmingly low levels…” [said Congressman Derek Kilmer].
Alaska Dispatch News, Jan 26, 2017: After a pitiful return of pink salmon to much of Alaska last summer, a federal disaster declaration was officially announced…
Gov. Jay Inslee’s Request: I respectfully request that you declare a commercial fishery failure due to a fishery resource disaster in Washington State. This request is based upon the failure of coho salmon runs returning to Washington State in 2016… Coho salmon returns to Washington watersheds in 2015 were unexpectedly low due to poor survival during the time these fish spent in marine waters of coastal Washington and the Pacific Ocean… Expectations for coho returns in 2016 are very poor due to persisting poor conditions in the Pacific
US Dept. of Commerce, Jan 18, 2017: Dear Governor Inslee… Your request relates to the impacts to the 2016 ocean salmon troll fishery as a result of the failure of coho salmon runs returning to Washington State due to unusual environmental conditions in the Pacific Ocean that have led to the poor survival and growth of coho salmon
Gov. Bill Walker’s Request: Districts across the entire area have experienced very poor escapement results, with the Kitoi Hatchery pink salmon return having the lowest survival rate on record… Two out of three Prince William Sound Aquaculture Corporation (PWSAC) hatcheries are experiencing record low commercial harvests.

On 30 January, a seismic swarm was recorded on the south-west slope of Mount Etna. The quakes ranged between 2.1 and 3.5 in magnitude at a depth between 10 and 15 km.

The seismic activity then continued, but was not accompanied by anomalies in the geophysical parameters, in particular the amplitude of the volcanic tremor which was maintained in moderately low stationary values ​​typical of recent months.

Boris Behncke, a specialist volcanologist living in front of the Italian volcanic peak, explains:” The thrust of deep magma may have caused this seismic swarm. In the past, such event were observed a few weeks or months before a major eruption. It is however still too early to say if this earthquake sequence is a precursor of a lateral eruption… But it will happen sooner or later.

Around two thousand years ago Mount Vesuvius erupted, destroying the Roman city of Pompeii and killing an estimated 1,500 people.
Today, a far more sinister supervolcano named Campi Flegrei is lurking underneath Naples in Italy.
Shock research, revealed last month, warned that the “big daddy” of Vesuvius is showing signs of “reawakening” and may be on the brink of going off.
Should it blow in a “big one” eruption, experts told Daily Star Online thousands, possibly millions, of people across Europe would be killed “immediately” from incineration and suffocation.
Dense black ash clouds would block out the sun, plunging the continent into months, if not years, of eerie darkness.
Tens of billions would be instantly wiped off the global economy as air travel, industry and farming would be ground to a halt.
The environment would take a pounding too as a boiling black cloud of hit gas would shoot into the atmosphere, triggering acid rain and accelerating global warming.
Worryingly scientists cannot predict and have no idea when it will next blow its top.
Dr. Luca De Siena, Geophysics professor at University of Aberdeen, is one of the leading experts researching the volcano.
Campi Flegrei last blew in 1538 in an eruption lasting eight days that formed a new mountain, Monte Nuovo.

But its most cataclysmic eruption came when it was formed around 39,000 years ago in a devastating blast that threw masses of lava, rock and debris into the air.
Professor De Siena said current activity does not suggest a “big one”, though “a small could take place”.
He told Daily Star Online: “In case of a small one, similar to the eruption in 1538, people living near the point of the eruption would be affected.
“We are still talking of thousands of people who could die/lose their houses, and the warning would be much less than for a big one.
“The economy of the entire Europe would be still in danger because of consequences.
“In case of a big one, it could affect our chances to live in Europe, immediately killing hundreds of thousands if not millions.
“Ashes would cover the sun, possibly for days/months/years, affecting humanity, fauna, and flora in other continents.”

The Arizona Geological Survey is monitoring a 2-mile long crack that has opened up in the Arizona desert. Recent drone flights over the crack reveal that it has continued to grow both in length and width in Pinal County, to the southeast of Phoenix.

Scientists are actively monitoring the crack and took drone video of the extent of the fissure as normal documentation of an area prone to large cracks in the Earth. The northern portion of the crack is older and partially filled in by eroding sediment and from collapse of the crack’s edges. Meanwhile, the southern portion remains 25 to 30 feet deep and 10 feet across. The fissure tapers out toward each edge but the southern edge continues to grow in length and widen.

The crack was first noticed in 2014 during a review of Google Earth images across the landscape to look for abnormal features. This prompted the Arizona Geological Survey to visit the site and measure the length, width, and depth of the massive fissure. They noticed the size was significantly larger than what appeared in the Google Earth imagery and had grown to almost 2 miles long. The crack had grown significantly due to local heavy rains that enhanced erosion and collapse of the overlying sediment to reveal the underground fissure.

Macedonia reported an outbreak of the highly contagious H5N8 bird flu virus at a farm in the southwestern part of the country, the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) said on Monday, citing a report from the local veterinary authorities.
The infected birds were found at a farm in the region of Struga, the report sent by the Paris-based OIE said, without giving details on the type of birds contaminated.
The H5N8 bird flu virus has been spreading across Europe since late last year, leading to the large-scale slaughter of poultry in several countries, while other bird flu strains lead to some human deaths in China.

U.S.-UK Trade Talks To Begin In Defiance Of EU Rules, Russia In Arctic Military Push, 'Color Revolution' In America

Congratulations to UK prime minister Theresa May for poking a finger into the eyes of EU nannycrats.
EU rules say members cannot negotiate trade deals until exit from the block is finalized, but you can kiss that rule goodbye.

High-level talks between the U.S. and the U.K. on strengthening trade ties will begin immediately, Downing Street said Saturday, following British Prime Minister Theresa May’s meeting with President Donald Trump in Washington on Friday.

Mrs. May’s office said a team of U.S. and U.K. officials would start scoping out what can be achieved together before the U.K. exits the European Union. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who Mrs. May met in Ankara on Saturday, made a similar commitment to increase trade links with the U.K.

The British leader has said the U.K. is reshaping its role in the world as it leaves the EU, including by renewing its relationship with both new allies and longstanding ones. But her trip to Washington and Ankara prompted criticism from some opposition lawmakers, who said she was cozying up to leaders whose values didn’t align with those in Britain.

Mrs. May on Saturday declined to comment on Mr. Trump’s executive order on refugees, saying the U.S. policy on immigration is a matter for the U.S. This prompted criticism from opposition lawmakers.

Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party, said Mrs. May should have stood up for Britain by condemning Mr. Trump’s order. “It should sadden our country that she chose not to,” he said.

Tom Brake, a Liberal Democrat lawmaker, said of Mrs. May’s reaching out to Mr. Trump and Mr. Erdogan: “This is a deeply alarming sign of her priorities for diplomacy in post-Brexit Britain,” Mr. Brake said. The pro-EU Liberal Democrats said Mrs. May is seeking trade deals with “unsavory leaders.”

While the U.K. is in preliminary talks on trade in more than a dozen countries, under EU law, the U.K. can’t finalize any trade deals with other countries while still a member of the bloc.

The UK has tested the limits of that rule...Over lunch at the White House on Friday, Mrs. May and Mr. Trump agreed to maintain the same trading relationship the U.S. currently has with the U.K. in the immediate aftermath of Brexit to ensure stability for businesses, Downing Street said. Mr. Trump has said he wants to agree as soon as possible to a trade deal with the U.K.

Testing the Limits or Clear Violation?
It’s hard to say why Theresa May cozied up to Erdogan (simple defiance of the EU? NATO?) , but it makes sense to start trade negotiations with the US now.
Working out a deal now to be signed the moment Brexit is official seems more like a violation of rules as opposed to “testing the limits”.
Regardless, what the hell can the EU do about it?
Yesterday, the Financial Times reported Theresa May will not find it easy to broker a US-UK trade deal … “British agriculture and financial services may suffer at hands of Capitol Hill”.
That all depends on what Trump’s primary motive is doesn’t it?
If Trump wants to assist in the collapse of the EU, he might be willing to give the UK a very favorable deal.

Russia is again on the march in the Arctic and building new nuclear icebreakers.

It is part of a push to firm Moscow's hand in the High North as it vies for dominance with traditional rivals Canada, the United States, and Norway as well as newcomer China.
Interviews with officials and military analysts and reviews of government documents show Russia's build-up is the biggest since the 1991 Soviet fall and will, in some areas, give Moscow more military capabilities than the Soviet Union once had.
The expansion has far-reaching financial and geopolitical ramifications. The Arctic is estimated to hold more hydrocarbon reserves than Saudi Arabia and Moscow is putting down a serious military marker.
"History is repeating itself," Vladimir Blinov, a guide on board the icebreaker Lenin, which is named after communist revolutionary Vladimir Lenin, told a recent tour group.
"Back then (in the 1950s) it was the height of the Cold War and the United States was leading in some areas. But we beat the Americans and built the world's first nuclear ship (the Lenin). The situation today is similar."
Under President Vladimir Putin, Moscow is rushing to re-open abandoned Soviet military, air and radar bases on remote Arctic islands and to build new ones, as it pushes ahead with a claim to almost half a million square miles of the Arctic.

The build-up, which echoes moves in Crimea and Kaliningrad, has been noticed in Washington. U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis told his confirmation hearing this month it was "not to our advantage to leave any part of the world" to others.
Mattis, in a separate written submission, described Moscow's Arctic moves as "aggressive steps" and pledged to prioritize developing a U.S. strategy, according to Senator Dan Sullivan.
That poses a potential dilemma for President Donald Trump, who wants to repair U.S.-Russia ties and team up with Moscow in Syria rather than get sucked into an Arctic arms race.
The build-up is causing jitters elsewhere. Some 300 U.S. Marines landed in Norway this month for a six-month deployment, the first time since World War Two that foreign troops have been allowed to be stationed there.

1,000,000 women marched on Washington DC in protect of President Trump. Not a single one of them marched against these swine.
In this very graphic video, you don’t need to know what these Barbarians are saying. All you know is the outcome is clear. This woman will die for no reason other than Islamic men have deemed it necessary.
Who knows what this woman did to be executed in the streets?
Watch as “men” come to see what’s going on. You will also see other men walking by, going about their merry way, as they don’t bother to interfere with the inevitable.
Think anybody will go to jail for this public execution? And you thought the “hood” was bad in America. Leftists haven’t seen anything, until they see a public execution, and people meander by. I’m surprised there wasn’t a happy couple picnicking in the background, serenaded by James Taylor.
Look at the so-called men who stood around as this woman was paraded around in public, until her executioner put a bullet in her head.
This is the culture that Leftists import into this country. They claim Islam to be the religion of peace, when tragedy after tragedy befalls those are not strict adherents.

As for this Muslim woman, don’t think she is an anomaly. She is the norm. Executions like that play out all over the world. And when women are not executed, fates worse than death await them at the hands of their captors.

Then ask yourself why Leftist NEVER protest the behaviors of these sick animals.
Again, I say if the 1,000,000 women who marched against President Trump had any morals, why don’t they march where that woman was executed? If they do that, then I will believe in their cause.

Funny, maybe, but factually wrong: I believe that a color revolution is being attempted in the USA right now.
Politico seems to feel the same way.  See their recent cover:

While I did predict that “The USA are about to face the worst crisis of their history” as far back as October of last year, a month before the elections, I have to admit that I am surprised and amazed at the magnitude of struggle which we see taking place before our eyes.  It is now clear that the Neocons did declare war on Trump and some, like Paul Craig Roberts, believe that Trump has now returned them the favor.  I sure hope that he is right.

Let’s look at one telling example:
US intelligence agencies are now investigating their own boss!  Yes, according to recent reports, the FBI, CIA, National Security Agency and Treasury Department are now investigating the telephone conversations between General Flynn and the Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyk.  According to Wikipedia, General Flynn is the former
  • Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency
  • Joint Functional Component Command for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance
  • Chair of the Military Intelligence Board
  • Assistant Director of National Intelligence
  • Senior intelligence officer for the Joint Special Operations Command.
He is also Trump’s National Security Advisor.  In other words, his security clearance is stratospherically high and he will soon become the boss of all the US intelligence services.  And yet, these very same intelligence services are investigating him for his contacts with the Russian Ambassador.   That is absolutely amazing.  Even in the bad old Soviet Union, the putatively almighty KGB did not have the right to investigate a member of the Communist Party Central Committee without a special authorization of the Politburo (a big mistake, in my opinion, but never mind that).  That roughly means that the top 500 members of the Soviet state could not be investigated by the KGB at all.  Furthermore, such was the subordination of the KGB to the Party that for common criminal matters the KGB was barred from investigating any member of the entire Soviet Nomenklatura, roughly 3 million people (and even bigger mistake!).
But in the case of Flynn, several US security agencies can decide to investigate a man who by all standards ought to be considered at least in the top 5 US officials and who clearly has the trust of the new President.  And that does not elicit any outrage, apparently.
By the same logic, the three letter agencies might as well investigate Trump for his telephone conversations with Vladimir Putin.
Which, come to think of it, they might well do it soon…
This is all absolutely crazy because this is evidence that the US intelligence community as gone rogue and is now taking its orders from the Neocons and their deep state and not from the President and that these agencies are now acting against the interests of the new President.
In the meantime, the Soros crowd has already chosen a color: pink.  We now are witnessing the “pussyhat revolution” as explained on this website.  And if you think that this is just a small fringe of lunatic feminists, you would be quite wrong.  For the truly lunatic feminists the “subtle” hint about their “pussyhat revolution” is too subtle, so they prefer making their statement less ambiguous as the image on the right shows.
This would all be rather funny, in a nauseating way I suppose, if it wasn’t for the fact that the media, Congress and Hollywood are fully behind this “100 days of Resistance to Trump” which began by a, quote, “queer dance party” at Mike Pence’s house.
This would be rather hilarious, if it was not for all gravitas with which the corporate media is treating these otherwise rather pathetic “protests”.

Make no mistake, such protest are no more spontaneous than the ones in the Ukraine. Somebody is paying for all this, somebody is organizing it all.  And they are using their full bag of tricks.  One more example:

My purpose in listing all the examples above is to suggest the following: far from having accepted defeat, the Neocons and the US deep state have decided, as they always do, to double-down and they are now embarking on a full-scale “color revolution” which will only end with the impeachment, overthrowal or death of Donald Trump.

One of the most amazing features of this color revolution against Trump is the fact that those behind it don’t give a damn about the damage that their war against Trump does to the institution of the President of the United States and, really, to the United States as a whole. That damage is, indeed, immense and the bottom line is this: President Trump is in immense danger of being overthrown and his only hope for survival is to strike back hard and fast.

The forces which are currently trying to impeach, overthrow or murder President Trump are a clear and present danger to the United States as a country and to the US Federal Republic.  They are, to use a Russian word, a type of “non-system” opposition which does not want to accept the outcome of the elections and which by rejecting this outcome essentially oppose the entire political system.

It amazes me to see that the US pseudo-elites have as much hatred, contempt and fear of the American masses as the Russian pseudo-elites have hatred, contempt and fear of the Russian masses (the Russian equivalent or Hillary’s “deplorables” would be a hard to pronounce for English speakers word “?????“, roughly “cattle”, “lumpen” or “rabble”).  It amazes me to see that the very same people which have demonized Putin for years are now demonizing Trump using exactly the same methods.  And if their own country has to go down in their struggle against the common people – so be it!  These self-declared elites will have no compunction whatsoever to destroy the nation their have been parasitizing and exploiting for their own class interest.  They did just that to Russia exactly 100 years ago, in 1917.  I sure hope that they will not get away with that again in 2017.
