The Trump-Putin phone call has widespread geopolitical implications

Before even entering the White House, Donald Trump has made the world a safer and better place. There is much work to be done and things will not always if ever be easy. But there is much to rejoice in. The unthinkable is on the verge of becoming the inevitable

It’s official, it is time to panic. The world has been pushed by Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump to the brink of peace. I can already see the looks of fear and trepidation on the faces of the corrupt bloodthirsty princes of Saudi Arabia, the despots of Qatar, the apparatchiks of Brussels, the tired old guard of London and because Angela Merkel constantly looks miserable, I can detect no tangible change to her countenance whatsoever.

But the biggest surprise surrounding the phone call between the leaders of the world’s two most geopolitically powerful and relevant states, is that anyone is at all surprised. As I wrote hours ago, those who are waiting for President-elect  Trump to backtrack on his pledges and break his word are going to be sorrowfully disappointed, as disappointed as the filthy scum in the mainstream media who wish physical harm to President Putin, only to realise that he is as fit and intellectually able as any man in the world.

Trump is a man who is open for business and as the world knows all too well, Putin is a man who means business.

The only surprise is that if someone had told me as little as three years ago that there would be an American leader who would not only reach out to the Russian President, but understand that the crux of world peace and general prosperity is contingent upon the two countries working in concert, rather than under the guise of suspicion and hatred, I would have said, it will never happen in my lifetime.

This is, for all intents and purposes the closest that America and Russia have been since the Alaska Purchase of 1867. What’s more though, is that whilst that was a financial transaction born out of pragmatism on both sides and a healthy dose of mitigating skepticism from both sides, the embryonic yet evolving relationship between Mr. Trump and Mr. Putin is born out of something vastly more profound than a transactional relationship.

Both men agree that strong states needs strong leaders with a strong purpose. Both understand that the main threat to wider world stability and peace is the Wahhabist terrorism funded by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the outgoing American government and aided by elements of the Turkish Republic. I hope that soon both men will make equally compelling statements in support of pulling the plug on the fascist regime in Kiev, a regime as evil as ISIS, though with fewer global ambitions or strategic capabilities.

Todays’ phone call also represents a vindication for those in United Russia who want to establish joint political dialogue between members of the Russian State Duma and the US Houses of Congress.  In terms of longer lasting profundity, it represents an opportunity for both countries to gain a deeper cultural understanding with one another, as was recently proposed by the LDPR.

Russian people have never had any animosity for the existence of the United States and its magnetic culture. Likewise, Russian culture captivates and inspires millions of Americans as it always has done. The fact that both men discussed the possibilities of further trade, makes me optimistic in this sense. Because of geographical distance and a recent history of political divide, Russians and Americans do not have the opportunity to trade as much as they’d like to or ought to.

Opening up such avenues can only be an enriching process for each country and can help form the basis of further cultural exchange.

When two superpowers unite in the name of justice and prosperity, one has the feeling that a war has been won without a shot being fired. That’s how many will feel tonight, though not everywhere.

The mainstream media in America, still controlled by a failing cabal of liberal miscreants will try and damn Trump, but they are only damning themselves to further oblivion.

The biggest losers, though, are Britain and Germany, two nations whose governments remain intransigent in the face of new, emerging geopolitical realities. Germany is a peculiar case.  In spite of membership of the short lived Three Emperors League between the years 1873-1887, after the wise and politically satisfied Otto von Bismarck was forced from power, the ultimate goal of a united German state has been and remains the destruction of Russia.

The fact that Angela Merkel has imported thousands of violent men of military age under the guise of humanitarianism,  speaks to the fact that Germany is looking to build a mercenary fighting force directed at a traditional late-modern enemy.

As frightening as the prospect sounds, there is a silver lining in this. The fact that Merkel needs to important young, violent men to do her bidding, means that actual Germans have little appetite for repeating the atrocities of their grandfathers and great-grandfathers. Both in the former DDR and BRD, people have indeed learnt the lessons of the 9th of May and understand the concept of Vergangenheitsbewältigung (overcoming the past) in its truest sense.

They understand that a commitment to reconciliation and atoning for the anti-Russian aggression that destroyed many German lives and families in addition to the proximate victims of German aggression, must be avoided at all costs. Many Germans continue to lay flowers on Soviet war memorials in the spirit of reconciliation in which Willy Brandt governed West Germany. This spirit is profoundly lacking in the current German Chancellor.

I have no doubt that whether the blow comes from a left-hook or a right-jab, Merkel’s political fight will end in a knock out, one which will ultimately give Europe a more meaningful and less aggressive trajectory towards Russia.

Then one must turn to Britain. Britain too bears a paradoxical relationship to Russia. Britain’s most glorious military victories have been achieved whilst working with Russia. I speak obviously about the victory first over Napoleon and then over Hitler. Yet there is a deeply ingrained racism against Russia in certain quarters of the British establishment, one which would frankly make many in America cringe.

These people have internalised the madness of the Crimean War without repentance, these are the people who tacitly supported the Nihilists who assassinated Tsar Alexander II. These are indeed the people who at first cheered the October Revolution in the hopes it would make Russia crippled and weak.

These are the people who believe Orthodox Christians are somehow less worthy than Protestants and Catholics.  These are the people who now hide behind every flag from those of Al Qaeda to the rainbow in trying to make Russia look barbaric and evil, whilst failing to convince the world of their own myopic ideals.

But there is also another Britain, the Britain of Nigel Farage on the right and George Galloway on the left who realise that in trying to agitate Russia, Britain is making herself look foolish in the eyes of the wider world which now seems to also include the United States.

It is up to Germans to reject Merkel’s neo-imperialist agitations and it is up to fair minded, enlightened and patriotic Britons to reject the ill-convinced racism of their government.

In any case, with the geopolitical weight of Russia, America and possibly China and the rest of the BRICS on one side and Germany and Britain on the other, one doesn’t need to be a master strategist to see where the weight of power and influence lies.

Poland and Latvia will simply have to accept that they’ll no longer court attention by peddling the anti-Russian line. Estonia by contrast is about to install a government which will diminish its hostility both towards the Russian Federation and Russians living in modern Estonia.

Finally, to those who doubted Donald Trump, I spit on you. You have wished and continue to wish the man failure. The failure that you wish for will plunge the world into war and stifle many cultural and economic opportunities which cooperation between superpowers virtually guarantees. May you be damned for your lack of human charity.

Before even entering the White House, Donald Trump has made the world a safer and better place.  There is much work to be done and things will not always – if ever – be easy. But there is much to rejoice in. The unthinkable is on the verge of becoming the inevitable. May fortune smile on Vladimir Vladimirovich and Donald John.

EU leaders dictate Brexit terms to Theresa May (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 115.

Alex Christoforou

Published

on

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss how EU leaders have agreed on a plan to delay the the Article 50 process which effectively postpones Brexit beyond the 29 March deadline.

The UK will now be offered a delay until the 22nd of May, only if MPs approve Theresa May’s withdrawal deal next week. If MPs do not approve May’s negotiated deal, then the EU will support a short delay until the 12th of April, allowing the UK extra time to get the deal passed or to “indicate a way forward”.

UK PM Theresa May said there was now a “clear choice” facing MPs, who could vote for a third time on her deal next week.

Theresa May outlines four Brexit options, via Politico

In a letter to MPs, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May set out the four options she believes the country has in light of Thursday’s decision by EU leaders to extend the Brexit deadline beyond next Friday.

The U.K. is faced with a four-way choice, May wrote late Friday.

The government could revoke Article 50 — which May called a betrayal of the Brexit vote; leave without a deal on April 12; pass her deal in a vote next week; or, “if it appears that there is not sufficient support” for a vote on her deal in parliament next week or if it is rejected for a third time, she could ask for an extension beyond April 12.

But this would require for the U.K. taking part in European elections in May, which the prime minister said “would be wrong.”

May wrote that she’s hoping for the deal to pass, allowing the U.K. to leave the EU “in an orderly way,” adding “I still believe there is a majority in the House for that course of action.”

“I hope we can all agree that we are now at the moment of decision,” she wrote.

US media suffers panic attack after Mueller fails to deliver on much-anticipated Trump indictment

Internet mogul Kim Dotcom said it all: “Mueller – The name that ended all mainstream media credibility.”

Important pundits and news networks have served up an impressive display of denials, evasions and on-air strokes after learning that Robert Mueller has ended his probe without issuing a single collusion-related indictment.

The Special Counsel delivered his final report to Attorney General William Barr for review on Friday, with the Justice Department confirming that there will be no further indictments related to the probe. The news dealt a devastating blow to the sensational prophesies of journalists, analysts and entire news networks, who for nearly two years reported ad nauseam that President Donald Trump and his inner circle were just days away from being carted off to prison for conspiring with the Kremlin to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

Showing true integrity, journalists and television anchors took to Twitter and the airwaves on Friday night to acknowledge that the media severely misreported Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia, as well as what Mueller’s probe was likely to find. They are, after all, true professionals.

“How could they let Trump off the hook?” an inconsolable Chris Matthews asked NBC reporter Ken Dilanian during a segment on CNN’s ‘Hardball’.

Dilanian tried to comfort the CNN host with some of his signature NBC punditry.

“My only conclusion is that the president transmitted to Mueller that he would take the Fifth. He would never talk to him and therefore, Mueller decided it wasn’t worth the subpoena fight,” he expertly mused.

Actually, there were several Serious Journalists who used their unsurpassed analytical abilities to conjure up a reason why Mueller didn’t throw the book at Trump, even though the president is clearly a Putin puppet.

“It’s certainly possible that Trump may emerge from this better than many anticipated. However! Consensus has been that Mueller would follow DOJ rules and not indict a sitting president. I.e. it’s also possible his report could be very bad for Trump, despite ‘no more indictments,'” concluded Mark Follman, national affairs editor at Mother Jones, who presumably, and very sadly, was not being facetious.

Revered news organs were quick to artfully modify their expectations regarding Mueller’s findings.

“What is collusion and why is Robert Mueller unlikely to mention it in his report on Trump and Russia?” a Newsweek headline asked following Friday’s tragic announcement.

Three months earlier, Newsweek had meticulously documented all the terrible “collusion” committed by Donald Trump and his inner circle.

But perhaps the most sobering reactions to the no-indictment news came from those who seemed completely unfazed by the fact that Mueller’s investigation, aimed at uncovering a criminal conspiracy between Trump and the Kremlin, ended without digging up a single case of “collusion.”

The denials, evasions and bizarre hot takes are made even more poignant by the fact that just days ago, there was still serious talk about Trump’s entire family being hauled off to prison.

“You can’t blame MSNBC viewers for being confused. They largely kept dissenters from their Trump/Russia spy tale off the air for 2 years. As recently as 2 weeks ago, they had @JohnBrennan strongly suggesting Mueller would indict Trump family members on collusion as his last act,” journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted.

While the Mueller report has yet to be released to the public, the lack of indictments makes it clear that whatever was found, nothing came close to the vast criminal conspiracy alleged by virtually the entire American media establishment.

“You have been lied to for 2 years by the MSM. No Russian collusion by Trump or anyone else. Who lied? Head of the CIA, NSA,FBI,DOJ, every pundit every anchor. All lies,” wrote conservative activist Chuck Woolery.

Internet mogul Kim Dotcom was more blunt, but said it all: “Mueller – The name that ended all mainstream media credibility.”

Canadian Lawmaker Accuses Trudeau Of Being A “Fake Feminist” (Video)

Rempel segued to Trudeau’s push to quash an investigation into allegations that he once groped a young journalist early in his political career

Published

Via Zerohedge

Canada’s feminist-in-chief Justin Trudeau wants to support and empower women…but his support stops at the point where said women start creating problems for his political agenda.

That was the criticism levied against the prime minister on Friday by a conservative lawmaker, who took the PM to task for “muzzling strong, principled women” during a debate in the House of Commons.

“He asked for strong women, and this is what they look like!” said conservative MP Michelle Rempel, referring to the former justice minister and attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould, who has accused Trudeau and his cronies of pushing her out of the cabinet after she refused to grant a deferred prosecution agreement to a Quebec-based engineering firm.

She then accused Trudeau of being a “fake feminist”.

“That’s not what a feminist looks like…Every day that he refuses to allow the attorney general to testify and tell her story is another day he’s a fake feminist!”

Trudeau was so taken aback by Rempel’s tirade, that he apparently forgot which language he should respond in.

But Rempel wasn’t finished. She then segued to Trudeau’s push to quash an investigation into allegations that he once groped a young journalist early in his political career. This from a man who once objected to the continued use of the word “mankind” (suggesting we use “peoplekind” instead).

The conservative opposition then tried to summon Wilson-Raybould to appear before the Commons for another hearing (during her last appearance, she shared her account of how the PM and employees in the PM’s office and privy council barraged her with demands that she quash the government’s pursuit of SNC-Lavalin over charges that the firm bribed Libyan government officials). Wilson-Raybould left the Trudeau cabinet after she was abruptly moved to a different ministerial post – a move that was widely seen as a demotion.

Trudeau has acknowledged that he put in a good word on the firm’s behalf with Wilson-Raybould, but insists that he always maintained the final decision on the case was hers and hers alone.

Fortunately for Canadians who agree with Rempel, it’s very possible that Trudeau – who has so far resisted calls to resign – won’t be in power much longer, as the scandal has cost Trudeau’s liberals the lead in the polls for the October election.
