By Paul Craig Roberts
Over the course of its history, the New York Times has reported on many American elections that have been rigged or stolen or are suspected of having been being rigged or stolen. For example, as a supporter of the black civil rights movement, the NY Times has many stories in its archives of elections rigged by disenfranchisement of black voters.
But this was when the NY Times was an independent voice before it became a whore for the Oligarchs who rule America. When the NY Times reported that black Americans could have no confidence in the integrity of American elections, the NY Times did not denounce itself for delegitimizing American democracy.
The NY Times forgot all of this when it published Max Fisher’s article yesterday. Fisher fished up “scholars” among the Hillary advocates, and they obligingly told him that Trump’s questioning of the integrity of American elections were the tactics of a would-be dictator who is at work delegitimizing democracy so that he can take over.
What Fisher and his “scholars” overlook is that the US government is already delegitimized in the eyes of the American population, as well as foreign populations. If the US government was not already delegitimized, Donald Trump would not have been successful in what, despite Trump’s damnation by the presstitutes, was an easy sweep-aside of the Establishment’s candidates for the Republican presidential nomination.
The US government is delegitimized, not only in the eyes of Americans, but also in the eyes of most of the world. Millions of Americans have lost their jobs, their careers, their hopes, because corrupt bought-and-paid-for-Washington enabled Globalism to send the futures of the American people to China and India. Millions of Americans lost their homes, because the corrupt Federal Reserve came down on the side of five “banks too big to fail” at the expense of the American people. Millions of Americans along with much of the world know that the US government has been slaughtering millions of peoples in seven countries based on lies, wasting not only countries and the lives of millions of peoples, but trillions of American dollars that Americans needed for their welfare. Saddam Hussein had no weapons of mass destruction. Assad did not use chemical weapons. Gaddafi was innocent of all the absurd charges that Washington used to destroy Libya, a country that had the most progressive social system on earth. Russia did not invade Ukraine. The Taliban had nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11. Yet countries are in ruins because of Washington’s war crimes justified by transparent lies.
If the NY Times does not know this, the organization is too stupid to justify its existence. Of course the Times knows it. But the NY Times is no longer a newspaper. It is a cog in the Ministry of Propaganda that works to create a Matrix in which brainwashed Americans accept the dictates of the Oligarchs.
The purpose of the Times’ article is to discredit in advance criticism of an election that the ruling Oligarchs intend to steal. If the Times believed that Hillary would have a clear election victory, there would be no point to Fisher’s article.
We see voluminous signs of the intended theft of the election. For example, Hillary’s lead in the polls is based on the pollsters skewing the affiliation of those polled to Democrats. The percentage of Democrats in the samples is far higher than their percentage of registered voters. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-10-23/how-wapos-latest-poll-give-hillary-12-point-advantage-over-trump
It the past it was difficult to steal elections unless they were very close. Exit polls were a check on vote count, and the disenfranchisement of blacks could be risky if it attracted the attention of the US Department of Justice. The new method, which is unfolding before our eyes, steals the election in advance with the Oligarchs’ candidate far ahead in the polls (now by 12 points according to the latest fiction) and by making anyone who questions the faked results into a fascist dictator.
Obviously, if Hillary was really ahead by 12 points — a landslide — there would be no need for Fisher’s article or for the constant drumbeat against Trump. Judging from the hysteria, as reflected in Fisher’s NY Times article, for example, the Oligarchs are aware that objections to their rule have elevated Trump. In order to hold on to power, the American Oligarchs must smash Trump and put their bought-and-paid-for-candidate, Hillary — whom the Oligarchs have provided along with Bill a personal fortune of $120 million and endowed the Clinton Foundation with $1,600 million — into the Oval Office.
Pollsters by nature of their business are unreliable. If truthful results offend the establishment political organizations, the pollsters are out of work. Polls have to serve the Oligarchs or the polling firms go down. Trump is an outsider toward whom the ruling Oligarchy is totally opposed, which is why Americans support him. Therefore, polling firms are adverse to betting their future on poll results favorable to Trump, especially when the whores who constitute the American print and TV media, such as the NY Times, are all out to put Hillary in the White House.
As Hillary’s public statements have made clear, Hillary is antagonistic toward Russia and the Russian government, calling the president of Russia “the new Hitler.” She promises conflict with Russia, which would certainly be nuclear and end life on earth.
Trump says in the face of contrary ruling neoconservative opinion that he sees no point in conflict with Russia and no point in NATO’s continued existence a quarter century after the purpose of NATO collapsed with the Soviet Union. Trump might not be successful in appointing a government that serves his instincts, but at least he gives us hope of avoiding military conflict with Russia and China. With Hillary there is no hope whatsoever. My opinion is that the world would not survive Hillary’s first term. I have known the neoconservatives since the 1970s. They are crazed fanatics, and they hate Russia. Hillary is their agent.
It is unclear that the Russian government understands, or takes seriously, the neoconservative ideology of US world hegemony. Putin’s hesitant, indecisive behavior in Syria has done more to set himself and Russia up for demonization than to defeat ISIS. (See By Cooperating with Washington on Syria Russia Walked into a Trap – Paul Craig Roberts.)
The Western world is corrupt and evil. The list of its victims is almost endless. What disconnect makes some Russians desire association with the Western world?
How the Media and Democrats Rig the Perception of Trump:
The Orchestrated Trump-Putin Connection:
Leaked emails prove that the Trump-Putin connection was orhestrated as campaign talk to deflect attention from damaging content of Clinton’s released emails.
Integrity Of US Elections Among Lowest Of All Countries:
According to Shyla Nelson, the co-founder of Election Justice USA, US elections are manipulated in many ways, including «voter suppression, unauthorized registration purges, district gerrymandering, gross exit poll variances, the privatization of voting machinery, and the lack of transparency in ballot processing – our elections will continue to rank among the lowest in the world in integrity.
US elections are so corrupt that the US has threatened Russian diplomats with arrest if they attempt to monitor the US November presidential election.
Bill Clinton’s Rape Victims (the ones we know about):
But we must not tolerate Trump’s lewd comments. Bill and Hillary are lawless because they have never been held accountable. As the justice system has given Hillary a pass, will voters hold her accountable in November, or will the American public also give her a pass?
Hillary Has Never Been Held Accountable For Anything:
What is worse, Hillary laughing about her success in getting a child rapist off or Trump’s lewd comments about women? Why is it that the TV women can’t come up with the right answer? How can democracy function when a propaganda ministry takes the place of the media?
A Comparison of Trump’s and Hillary’s Crowds:
Trump’s crowds are hundreds of times larger than Hillary’s, so how is it that she is in the lead? We are being told lies in order to cover up the coming election theft.
Poll of Likely Voters Finds 53% Want Hillary Indicted:
If 53% of voters want Hillary indicted, how can she be leading in the presidential race? Which of the polls is wrong?
Rigged Elections Are An American Tradition:
Don’t let them steal the election, reject the presstitutes’ propaganda:
Commentary by Stephen Lendman
November 8 isn’t election day. It’s orchestrated grand theft theater to anoint Hillary Obama’s successor. Americans are deluded to believe their vote matters. This year’s outcome was decided well in advance, likely last year before aspirants announced their candidacy for the nation’s highest office.
Power brokers running America bear full responsibility for concocting a sham system, fantasy democracy, not the real thing. Disgracefully one-sided pro-Hillary media scoundrels and corporate pollsters share blame for creating the impression of her unbeatability.
Press agent journalism proliferates. Biased corporate polls are easily manipulated to show what sponsors want. On Sunday, The New York Times virtually declared Hillary November’s winner and next president, saying she “has a 93% chance to win.” The dirty game aims to discourage Trump supporters, convince them he has no chance to win, hoping many will stay home, while encouraging rank and file for Hillary to show up en masse.
Any number of dirty tricks can be used to assure she’s anointed president-elect. Stolen elections are a longstanding US tradition from the early days of the republic. Now it’s done by methods explained above, electronic ease, voter roll stripping and other dirty tricks.
Paul Craig Roberts explains turnout for Trump stump speeches overwhelming exceeds what Hillary attracts. So how come most polls show her leading, he asks? “We are being told lies in order to cover up the coming election theft,” he justifiably explains.
Want more evidence? Here it is. Citing an October 18 – 19, Rasmussen poll, RT International reported 65% of voters surveyed saying Hillary acted extrajudicially by storing classified State Department emails on her private server.
A 53% majority believe she should be indicted. When asked if Hillary’s email scandal was important in influencing their vote, 70% replied affirmatively – 49% calling it very important.
If Hillary wins as expected, around 70% of Republican voters believe it’s by election-rigging, according to a separate Reuters/Ipsos poll RT cited. If most voters want her indicted, polls showing her leading Trump lack credibility.
She’s the establishment candidate, Wall Street’s choice, Trump an outlier, relentlessly denigrated, things rigged to assure he loses.
Democracy in America serves its privileged few alone — indifferent to the needs, rights and welfare of most others, especially the nation’s poor and vulnerable.

Quemado Institute Conclusion: On Vote Rigging
By Kennedy Applebaum
Election rigging is the biggest obstacle facing us now. My feeling is that Trump will win by a landslide, as online polls consistently show, with 65 to 80% of the vote──or at least, of the attempted vote. The problem is, early voting in Texas already shows electronic votes being switched from Trump to Hillary. Evidence of this kind of election rigging is being tracked at Infowars.com. (See report.)
What we need are armies of exit pollsters on November 8, as well as a central URL where flipped votes can be reported in realtime. If there is enough evidence the election is rigged, Donald Trump may be able to fight it. What we can do is post comments at Infowars.com letting people know of election irregularities during early voting. The comment sections there abound with reports, warnings and opinions on vote rigging.
Note that Quemado Institute awarded the Diogenes Dunce of the Day prize yesterday to the “alternative media” website Moon of Alabama for flagrant hypocrisy and suppression of evidence of election fraud. (See our Diogenes Score page.) What happened was, QI founder Karl Pomeroy, as a service to voters, tried three times to post a link to Infowars.com about election rigging on a Moon of Alabama open thread. The moderator deleted all three. This means the website is obviously a fake, and really owned by the powers that be. It is interesting that several commenters at Infowars have encountered the same problem when trying to post links on other websites.
The pervasiveness of censorship on election fraud is chilling.

IT’S RIGGED: Trump Supporters Discover Their Ballots Were Not Counted and Tossed Out, by Jim Hoft, Oct 27, 2016
If you notice ballot irregularities or electronic vote switching please contact the Trump team.
Report all voting irregularities. Here is the list for each state.
Uncensored: An Inside Look at a Donald Trump Rally / By Peter Kizenko / The Duran / Posted Quemado Institute / October 24, 2016 / Given the current political landscape, I felt compelled to attend a Donald Trump rally to see what it’s all about. It’s been since 1980 since I last attended a political event and this the story of that trip. I received a phone call from my good friend Steve (an ardent Trump supporter) Thursday morning exclaiming that Trump will be in Pennsylvania on Saturday [October 22, 2016] and do I want to go. I quickly looked at the map to see where Johnstown, PA is and said I’m in. Trump was scheduled to speak at 4:00 pm at the Cambria County War Memorial, home of the immortal ice hockey comedy Slapshot! We quickly downloaded our tickets and were advised to arrive early even though doors were opening at 1:00 pm. I woke up at 4:30 am Saturday morning to begin my trek West. As Steve said, “The Colonialists had it tougher..” We decided on the Mohegan Sun Pocono as our meeting point and hit the road around 8:00 am. Weather forecasts called for heavy rain all day with 25 mph winds but we would not allow that to deny us. Although we hit a couple pockets of rain the storm never really materialized. (We hypothesized that the DNC had hacked the National Weather Bureau in an effort to deter attendees.) Rolling into Johnstown around noon we knew we were close when we saw a line snaking over the bridge and beyond. Having no idea on what kind of crowd or attended mood to expect we were overwhelmed by the positive and electric . . . MORE>>
Is Washington “False Flagging” The New Russia-Iran-Syria-China “Axis of Evil”, Into Nuclear War? / By Peter Koenig / Global Research / October 21, 2016 / False flagging has hundreds of years of history; successful history that is. Otherwise the method of lying and bullying people into false believes would not have survived the times. But false flags took on a new dimension since 9/11. The subsequent terror acts, including the Arab Spring and ‘Color Revolutions’; downing of a Russian plane over Egypt; shooting down of a Malaysian plane over the Ukraine; Paris murderous shootings at ‘Charlie Hebdo’ and ‘Bataclan’; Brussels; Nice; Munich; Orlando, Florida; San Bernardino, California – to name just a few over the last years – were perpetrated by the very actors claiming to fight terror, namely predominantly the secret services of the US, UK and Israel, the European vassals and NATO. The purpose of such acts of terror is to create fear, to justify a police crackdown on the populations and doing away with every time more of the democratic civil rights still left in western society. The penultimate goal is total militarization of the western world, to prevent and suppress protests and revolts if and when the population eventually wakes up to the flagrant lies that it has been force-fed by the presstitute media for years on end. And that in itself is a crucial step towards the ultimate goal of Full Spectrum Dominance of the world, or world hegemony, by a small corporate and financial elite. Alas, militarization of the west and ongoing wars and chaos throughout the world, causing millions of . . . MORE>>
Death of Symbol of Donbass’s Resistance Will Not Shake Its Faith in Victory / By Kristina Melnikova / Eadaily.com / October 18, 2016 /Assassination of the hero of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Commander of the Sparta Battalion Arsen Pavlov (Motorola) has become one of the worst news for Donbass so far. Motorola enjoyed respect of both the people and the comrades-in-arms. He was not only a fearless and charismatic fighter (there are lots of such fighters in Novorossiya) but also the face of the whole resistance. And now that Donbass is mourning for him, it is mourning for all defenders dying in this endless war every day. Well-known leader of self-defense forces, Igor Strelkov’s comrade Yevgeny “Prapor” Skripnik has told EADaily about Motorola and has explained why he is one of the symbols of Donbass. “I knew Motorola before we came here (Donbass – EADaily). He was an ordinary fighter. In Slavyansk, he was just like all the others. But there was something striking about him… He showed his worth when we were fighting a group of the Right Sector (banned in Russia – EADaily) in Semyonovka. There he organized a group and managed to throw the enemy back. He was very brave. One of the reasons he became so popular is that he was very active and was not afraid of mass media. He became most popular after the fights for Ilovaysk and the airport. He was . . . MORE>>
Trump’s Historic Speech Denouncing International Finance, Globalism and the Media / National Public Radio / October 13, 2016 /
Donald Trump: Wow. What a group. What a group. Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you, folks. Thank you, folks. It’s great to be right here in Florida, which we love. In 26 days, we are going to win this great, great state and we are going to win the White House. Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt — now, when I say “corrupt,” I’m talking about totally corrupt — political establishment, with a new government controlled by you, the American people. There is nothing the political establishment will not do — no lie that they won’t tell, to hold their prestige and power at your expense. And that’s what’s been happening. The Washington establishment and the financial and media corporations that fund it exist for only one reason: to protect and enrich itself. The establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election. As an example, just one single trade deal they’d like to pass involves trillions of dollars, controlled by many countries, corporations and lobbyists. For those who control the levers of power in Washington, and for the global special interests, they partner with these people that don’t have your good in mind. Our campaign represents a true existential threat like they haven’t seen before. This is not simply another four-year election. This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not we the people reclaim . . . MORE>>
West is Gunning for Russian Media Ban / By Finian Cunningham / Strategic Culture Foundation / October 13, 2016 / It would be monumental, but Western states seem to be moving, ineluctably, towards banning Russian news media channels from satellite platforms and the internet. That outcome – albeit with enormous ethical and political implications – seems to be a logical conclusion of the increasingly frenzied transatlantic campaign to demonize Russia. Washington, London and Paris appear to be coordinating an unprecedented media onslaught that is vilifying Russia for almost every conceivable malfeasance, from alleged war crimes in Syria to threatening the security of Europe, to shooting down civilian airliners, to subverting American presidential elections. And that’s only a sample. British foreign secretary Boris Johnson declared this week that Russia is in danger of becoming a «pariah state». Ironically, that fate has less to do with Russia’s actual conduct and more to do with the desired objective driving Western policy towards Moscow – to isolate and portray Russia as an international reprobate. If Russia can be sufficiently demonized in the eyes of the Western public by their governments, then the political context is created for drastic measures, which would otherwise be seen as unacceptable infringements of democratic rights. Measures that go way beyond economic sanctions and into the realm of media censorship. How weird is that? The «free world» which deplores «Russian authoritarianism» moving towards media censorship and policing what it deems as «thought-crime».

Engage In Sex, Not War / By Paul Craig Roberts / October 11, 2016 / During the sexual scandals of Bill Clinton — the “bimbo eruptions” as Hillary called them — the Democrats and progressive opinion ruled out a person’s sex life as a political factor. Now suddenly nothing more than juvenile locker room banter without the actual sex has become the determinant of political unfitness. Where did the 11-year old recording of locker room talk between Donald Trump and Billy Bush come from? Who recorded it and kept it for 11 years for what purpose? Why was it released the day prior to the second debate between Trump and Hillary? Was the recording an illegal violation of privacy? What became of the woman who recorded Monica Lewinsky’s confession to her of sex with Bill Clinton? Wasn’t she prosecuted for wiretaping or some such offense? Why was Billy Bush, the relative of two US presidents, suspended from his TV show because of a private conversation with Trump? You have to take men’s sexual banter with a grain of salt, just as you do their fish stories. President or candidate Bill Clinton himself publicly engaged . . . MORE>>
NGO’s and Terrorists Play Good Cop-Bad Cop Role in Western Imperialist Agenda / By Vanessa Beeley / AlternateView.co.uk / Introduction and Conclusion by Kennedy Applebaum / Quemado Institute / October 8, 2016 /We live in a world governed by propaganda. / Vanessa Beeley explains, in this 1 hour 12 minute VIDEO, the role of so-called humanitarian NGO’s as spearheads of violent US-EU-NATO intervention in sovereign countries such as Libya, Syria, and Yemen, and the devastation that results from the misuse by the deep state of our natural human compassion. / Preliminary Remarks By Vanessa Beeley: The NGO Soft Power Complex: Humanitarians or “Executioners”? We live in a world governed by propaganda where the majority of media mouthpieces are gagged by those who own them and only permitted to release information that serves the narrative of the ruling elite or Imperialist powers. We know that our governments lie. We know that our media channels lie. We search for integrity and truth among the rubble of propaganda. We want to pin our hopes on a power for “good”. So what does the machine create? It creates a power for good in its own image. It creates the Non Government Organisations, the Not for Profit Industrial Compex [NPIC] to give us the illusion, not only of this power for good, but of our own empowerment, our own stakeholding in reducing the misery being inflicted upon Humanity. The problem reveals itself when we consider who does actually fund & create these flagships of philanthropy. The problem lies with the foundations and government think tanks who have their hands firmly on the helm and direct the ship where they want it to go. Do we really . . . MORE>>
Washington Leads The World To War / By Paul Craig Roberts / Global Research / October 6, 2016 / What must the world think watching the US presidential campaign? Over time US political campaigns have become more unreal and less related to voters’ concerns, but the current one is so unreal as to be absurd. The offshoring of American jobs by global corporations and the deregulation of the US financial system have resulted in American economic failure. One might think that this would be an issue in a presidential campaign. The neoconservative ideology of US world hegemony is driving the US and its vassals into conflict with Russia and China. The risks of nuclear war are higher than at any previous time in history. One might think that this also would be an issue in a presidential campaign. Instead, the issues are Trump’s legal use of tax laws and his non-hostile attitude toward President Putin of Russia. One might think that the issue would be Hillary’s extremely hostile attitude toward Putin (“the new Hitler”), which promises conflict with a major nuclear power. As for benefitting from tax laws, Pat Buchanan pointed out that Hillary used to her benefit a loss almost as large as Trump’s and during the Arkansas years Hillary even took a tax deduction for itemized . . .

New Information from Defense Ministry on MH17 Increases Confusion / By Nikolai Litovkin / Russia Beyond the Headlines / Posted with Conclusion by Quemado Institute / October 1, 2016 / Russian military officials have offered new information about the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 over the breakaway republics in eastern Ukraine in July 2014, but the data does little to clarify the situation ahead of the release of a Joint Investigation Team report. The Russian military says it did not observe the flight of a missile from a Buk-M1 air defense missile system (ADMS) from the rebel-held regions of eastern Ukraine in the direction of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 in July 2014, according to statements made by Andrei Koban, the commander of Russia’s Aerospace Forces’ Radio Engineering Troops, on Sept. 26. According to newly released data, which was taken from Russian radar stations on the border with Ukraine, as well as information received by Russia’s armed forces from the leadership of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (the DNR and LNR), the objects observed by Russian radar in the sky that night in addition to the Malaysian aircraft were two civilian airliners and an Orlan-10 unmanned aerial vehicle, which was made of composite materials and was about 6 feet long. “In comparison, the missile of the Buk air defense system has a length of more than 5.5 meters [18 feet], a diameter of 0.4 meters [1.3 feet] and a wingspan of about 1 meter [3 feet].

Posted with Conclusion by Quemado Institute / September 25, 2016 / The Russian government deceived itself with its fantasy belief that Russia and Washington had a common cause in fighting ISIS. The Russian government even went along with the pretense that the various ISIS groups operating under various pen names were “moderate rebels” who could be separated from the extremists, all the while agreeing to cease fighting on successive verges of victory so that Washington could resupply ISIS and prepare to introduce US and NATO forces into the conflict. The Russian government apparently also thought that as a result of the coup against Erdogan, which was said to implicate Washington, Turkey was going to cease supporting ISIS and cooperate with Russia. Alas, the Russians so fervently, or perhaps I should say feverishly, desired an agreement with Washington that they deceived themselves. If Finian Cunningham’s report is correct, Washington has taken advantage of Russia’s urging that Washington and Turkey join in the attack on ISIS by invading . . . MORE>>
Third World War Has Never Been So Close – VIDEO / By Alexander Dugin, Top Russian Geopolitical Analyst Katehon.com / September 20, 2016 / Posted Quemado Institute
September 22, 2015 / As we have already said many times, the main aspect of this political season is not elections, but war. But if elections do have importance somewhere, then this is in the US where, once again, they are closely connected to war. Two days ago, on Saturday, September 17th, the likelihood of this war was breathtakingly high. As we know, American troops, who no one ever invited to Syria, bombed the positions of the Syrian army at Deir ez-Zor. As a result of the bombing, 60 Syrian soldiers were killed. This strike was extremely important for ISIS militants, whom the US is informally advising and arming while supposedly fighting them. This crossed the line. Bombing Syrian soldiers is one thing, but this means declaring war not only against Syria, but also Russia, which is fighting in Syria on Assad’s side. And this means that we have reached a climax. Sure, the US leadership immediately reported that the airstrike was a mistake and warned the Russian leadership not to express . . . MORE>>
American Bombing No Mistake / By Karl Pomeroy / Quemado Institute / September 19, 2016 / Evidence continues to accumulate that the United States is supporting terrorism overseas. The American air strikes in Syria’s eastern province of Deir el-Zour on Saturday, September 17, 2016, which killed some 80 Syrian troops and allowed ISIS to expand in the area, constitute de facto proof of deliberate Pentagon military aid to terrorists and in particular ISIS. The US government claims the bombing was a mistake. This is impossible to believe. The air strikes violated the new US-Russian ceasefire, constituting a crime on that basis alone. But that’s not the most important evidence. No sane person could conceivably accept the claim that the Pentagon is so ignorant it did not know what it was doing. Place the Criminals in Isolation: It is time Obama be impeached, and his terrorist cohorts infiltrating the American government be put on public trial.

Americans Have the Power to Vote for Peace / By Karl Pomeroy Quemado Institute Opinion Page / September 13, 2016 /
There should be no confusion about who to vote for in the 2016 US elections. Donald Trump is the peace candidate, Hillary Clinton the war candidate. This is the logical conclusion. On US Foreign Aggression: First of all, Trump has never deviated from his noninterventionist stance. Whether or not he can fully overcome status quo opposition to his foreign policy, his America First principle has been unwavering. Martin Sieff describes it this way (War or Peace: For Whom Do We Vote on November 8th?): “There can be no guarantee that Trump will succeed in achieving his expressed goals in foreign policy. He will certainly not be a dovish or disarming president. But he has been totally consistent in his expressed determination to be a more cautious and responsible one. By contrast, a vote for Hillary Clinton will ensure, at the very best, more of the existing . . . MORE>>
By Eric Zuesse / Strategic Culture Foundation / Posted Quemado Institute / September 8, 2016 / The biggest difference between the two major-Party U.S. Presidential candidates is that Hillary Clinton wants to continue the Obama-Administration’s policy of regime-change in nations that aren’t hostile towards Russia (such as Iraq, Libya, Ukraine and now Syria), and that Donald Trump doesn’t. Trump wants to focus U.S. national-security policies instead upon eliminating jihadists (a problem that the U.S. and Saudi governments actually gave birth to in Pakistan and Afghanistan starting in 1979, in order to cripple the Soviet Union — which ended in 1991). Trump says that the Cold War is over, but Hillary says «Russia must pay a price». However, neither candidate has provided any fleshed-out position on the matter. Hillary Clinton doesn’t need to do so, because she has already shown by her actions in public office, that she has consistently favored overthrowing heads-of-state who were either . . . MORE>>
If This Does Not Disqualify Hillary For The Presidency, It’s Hard To Know What Will / By Tyler Durden / ZeroHedge / August 28, 2016 / Even the traditionally ‘establishment’ Wall Street Journal is waking up to the utter incredulity of an American media (and citizenry) which appears capable of cognitive dissonance on an epic scale when it comes to Hillary Clinton. As Kimberly Strassel explains the latest emails show that State and the foundation were one seamless entity. This is the week that the steady drip, drip, drip of details about Hillary Clinton’s server turned into a waterfall. This is the week that we finally learned why Mrs. Clinton used a private communications setup, and what it hid. This is the week, in short, that we found out that the infamous server was designed to hide that Mrs. Clinton for three years served as the U.S. Secretary of the Clinton Foundation. In March this column argued that while Mrs. Clinton’s mishandling of classified information was important, it missed the bigger point.

The Foreign Invasion of American Politics / by Justin Raimondo / Antiwar.com / Posted David Stockman’s Contra Corner / August 25, 2016 / Foreign free riders hate Trump and love Hillary—with good reason. /
As one of my Twitter followers put it so succinctly: “Globalization: Where leaders from any country get to pick US Presidents.” As the Clinton campaign’s Robby Mook tears a page out of Joe McCarthy’s book and smears Donald Trump as being “Putin’s puppet,” the irony is that this election has seen foreign interference in American politics to an unprecedented degree – on Hillary’s behalf. In the past, foreign actors tried to hide such activities, rightly thinking that they might encounter resentment – or even legal consequences – for trying to meddle in affairs that are none of their damned business. Not anymore. Now that we’re a global empire, with our leaders proclaiming the supreme importance of exercising “US leadership” and sticking our noses in every petty squabble on earth, our client states . . .

As reported on Monday by Al-Masdar News: The Pentagon has announced that the USA is ready to down Syrian and Russian planes that they claim threaten American advisers who by international law are illegally operating in northern Syria.

Introduction: Why Does America Massacre Foreign People? / By Karl Pomeroy / Quemado Institute / August 19, 2016 / Yesterday the Ron Paul Institute posted the following quote: “Bin Laden Speaks…Should We Listen? Osama bin Laden’s youngest son, Hamza, purportedly released an audio recording earlier this week in which he called for young Saudis to get involved with al-Qaeda in Yemen and in which he called for retaliation against ongoing US military operations in several countries in the greater Middle East. Said the younger bin Laden: ‘We will continue striking you and targeting you in your country and abroad in response to your oppression of the people of Palestine, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and the rest of the Muslim lands that did not survive your oppression.’ Should we listen to him and start thinking about removing his recruiting tools, or do we keep doing . . .

Hillary, Trump, and War With Russia / By Fred Reed / Information Clearing House / Posted by Quemado Institute / August 18, 2016 / The Goddamdest Stupid Idea I Have Ever Heard, and I Have Lived in Washington. Don’t look for a walk-over. The T14 Armata, Russia’s latest tank. You don’t want to fight this monster if you can think of a better idea, such as not fighting it. Russia once made large numbers of second-rate tanks. That worm has turned. This thing is way advanced and outguns the American M1A2, having a 125mm smoothbore firing APFSDS long-rods to the Abrams 120mm. (As Hillary would know, that’s Armor-piercing, fin-stabilized, discarding-sabot. You did know, didn’t you, Hill?) This isn’t the place for a disquisition on armor, but the above beast is a very advanced design with unmanned turret and, well, a T34 it isn’t. (I was once an aficionado of tanks. If interested, here and here.) A good reason to vote for Trump, a very good reason whatever his other intentions, is that he does not want a war with Russia. Hillary and her . . . MORE>>
Two Speech Transcripts with Concluding Comments by Karl Pomeroy / Quemado Institute / August 17, 2016 / Full Transcript – Donald Trump’s ISIS and Foreign Policy Speech / Heavy.com / August 15, 2016 / Here is the full transcript of Donald Trump’s August 15th speech, via the campaign’s website: / Thank you. It is great to be with you this afternoon. Today we begin a conversation about how to Make America Safe Again. In the 20th Century, the United States defeated Fascism, Nazism, and Communism. Now, a different threat challenges our world: Radical Islamic Terrorism. This summer, there has been an ISIS attack launched outside the war zones of the Middle East every 84 hours. Here, in America, we have seen one brutal attack after another. 13 were murdered, and 38 wounded, in the assault on Ft. Hood. The Boston Marathon Bombing wounded and maimed 264 people, and ultimately left five dead – including 2 police officers. In Chattanooga, Tennessee . . . MORE>>
Momentum Builds For Donald Trump As Authors Expose Media Deception / Introduction by Karl Pomeroy / Quemado Institute / August 12, 2016 / Attempts by the neoconservative American establishment to derail the campaign of Donald Trump are backfiring, as prominent geopolitical analysts cut through the media hyperole and expose the rigged system for what it is: a political machine designed to perpetuate the power and perks of the global elite while destroying the foundations of American democracy. James Petras, Stephen Lendman, and Patrick Buchanan argue in the following commentaries for a rapid turnaround of political trends in favor of Donald Trump: / Obama Versus Trump, Putin and Erdogan: Can Coups Defeat Elected Governments? / By James Petras / Information Clearing House / Never in the history of the United States, has a President and Supreme Court Judge openly advocated the overthrow of a Presidential candidate. Never has the entire mass media engaged in a round-the-clock one-sided, propaganda war to discredit a Presidential candidate by systematically ignoring or distorting the central socio-economic issues of their opposition. “Many of our interlocutors have been purged or arrested”. — James Clapper, US Director of Intelligence . . .

Political Assassination – The American Way / By Finian Cunningham / Sputnik News / Reposted at Quemado Institute / August 11, 2016 / Donald Trump has entered a political kill zone. And the American establishment is lining up to take him out. We are talking here in virtual terms – at least thus far. Nowadays, political assassination by US powers-that-be does not necessarily involve physical liquidation of the individual deemed to be an enemy of the state. Who needs all that blood and controversy? Especially when character assassination achieves the same desired end result — that is, elimination of target from the public domain. The fierce media crossfire that the Republican presidential contender is being subjected to leaves little doubt that this is a concerted effort to destroy this politician. In the past week, we have seen a fusillade of vilification fired at the New York property. . . MORE>>
Introduction by Kennedy Applebaum / The Campaign Circus / Quemado Institute / August 8, 2016 / Former director of the Central Intelligence Agency Michael J Morell vilifies Republican candidate Donald Trump for minor personality traits while hailing Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for her drive to wage illegal wars, an irony elucidated in the first article below by geopolitical analyst Finian Cunningham. Starkly contrasting Morell’s hawkish viewpoint, former Georgia Senator and Assistant Secretary General for Defense Support at NATO Mack Mattingly argues that Trump’s support for normalized relations with Russia is really the most reasonable stance, especially in view of the fact that NATO’s mandate evaporated at the end of the Cold War. If the US 2016 elections appear to be a media circus, this is not the fault of Donald Trump, who advocates reason in world affairs. The neocon warmongers and their corporate-owned news agencies have . . . MORE>>
/ Assassination Attempt on East Ukrainian Leader Raises Tensions and Provokes Questions / By Alexander Mercouris / NewColdWar.org / Posted Quemado Institute Aug 7, 2016 / Attempted assassination of Igor Plotnitsky, leader of the breakaway Lugansk People’s Republic, provokes fears of infighting and of a possible Ukrainian summer offensive. News of the assassination attempt on Igor Plotnitsky, the head of the breakaway Lugansk People’s Republic, will come as no surprise to close observers of the Ukrainian conflict. Whilst there is a strong possibility that the assassination attempt was the work of the Ukrainian secret service the SBU, it is by no means impossible that it is the result of factional infighting within the Lugansk People’s Republic. Whereas the political situation in the neighbouring Donetsk People’s Republic has stabilised with its leader Alexander Zakharchenko apparently both effective and popular, the same has not been true of the Lugansk People’s Republic where Igor . . .

The Democrats: Party of Joe McCarthy and Lyndon Johnson / By Wayne Madsen / Strategic Culture Foundation / August 3, 2016 / Posted at Quemado Institute / August 3, 2016 / The rhetoric emanating from the podium of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia sounded eerily familiar. Democrat after Democrat waxed on about the «dangers» posed by Russia and the inability of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to deal with them. Chief among these neo-Cold Warriors was former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, the second-worst Secretary of State in American history. Meanwhile, the Democrats’ spin machine was turning out propaganda memes calling Trump «Kremlin Don», «Don the Red», and even dredging up references to the Soviet Union and Joseph Stalin. Of course, this rhetoric was directly borrowed from the chief «Red baiting» politician of the dark days of Communist «witch hunting» in the United States, the infamous Republican senator from Wisconsin Joseph McCarthy. Like McCarthy, the Democrats, once again under . . . MORE>>
/ The Power of “Nyet” / By Dmitry Orlov / Club Orlov / Posted Quemado Institute / July 29, 2016 / The way things are supposed to work on this planet is like this: in the United States, the power structures (public and private) decide what they want the rest of the world to do. They communicate their wishes through official and unofficial channels, expecting automatic cooperation. If cooperation is not immediately forthcoming, they apply political, financial and economic pressure. If that still doesn’t produce the intended effect, they attempt regime change through a color revolution or a military coup, or organize and finance an insurgency leading to terrorist attacks and civil war in the recalcitrant nation. If that still doesn’t work, they bomb the country back to the stone age. This is the way it worked in the 1990s and the 2000s, but as of late a new dynamic has emerged. In the beginning it was centered on Russia, but the phenomenon has since spread around the world and is about to engulf the United States itself. It works like this: the . . . MORE>>
Though Hysteria Mounts, the Future is Peace / By Karl Pomeroy / Quemado Institute / July 26, 2016 / Geopolitical analysts are right to be alarmed about Bush-Obama-Clinton neoconservative policy. This arrogant agenda of reckless aggression has pushed NATO troops to the doorway of Russia, destabilized the Islamic belt of the Middle East and North Africa, created a fertile breeding ground for human revenge by terrorists like ISIS, and nudged Russian President Vladimir Putin to warn of retaliation. Yet as hysteria mounts in the anti-establishment media about nuclear world war, the answer escapes many analysts. This curious phenomenon seems suspect. If these authors are sincere about preventing nuclear war, why don’t they acknowledge our best hope for peace? Why Vilify Peace? Recent articles abound on the threat of nuclear war. Paul Craig Roberts is one of the leading . . . MORE>>
The US Establishment Plans War to Stop Trump / By Alexander Dugin, Russia’s number one geopolitical thinker / Information Clearing House / Conclusion by Karl Pomeroy, Quemado Institute / July 11, 2016 / VIDEO transcript: Greetings, you’re watching Dugin’s Guideline. The situation around Russia at the international level is gradually worsening. Even the most attentive international analysts have observed this. Recently, the Stratfor Think Tank published an article with an expressive title: The U.S. and Russia Plan for Conflict. Why are they drawing attention to this conflict now? The opposition between the Land (Russia) and the Sea (the USA and NATO members) is something constant and unchangeable. If one loses something, the other gains something, and vice versa. Only naïve people and the direct agents of influence can believe in the “reset” of the “friendship” with the West. But why has the duel between these civilizations become more intensive only recently? There are many explanations for it. But let’s regard the internal . . . MORE>>
Sott.net / Conclusion by Kennedy Applebaum / Quemado Institute / July 2, 2016 / Insatiable thirst for violence: Israeli warplanes launch several airstrikes on Gaza Strip / Israeli warplanes have launched several airstrikes on the Gaza Strip in yet another act of aggression against the besieged Palestinian coastal territory. No casualties have yet been reported in the Saturday morning attacks that followed reports of an alleged rocket launch from Gaza on a vacant kindergarten in the town of Sderot in the occupied Palestinian territories. The Israeli warplanes reportedly hit the Zeitoun district of Gaza City and a site belonging to the Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas. The Israeli bombardment of Gaza came hours after Tel Aviv imposed a closure on the occupied West Bank city of al-Khalil (Hebron) and its surrounding areas following the killing of an Israeli man in a drive-by . . .

Introduction by Kennedy Applebaum / Quemado Institute / June 29, 2016 / One of the oddest things about media reports of the Orlando shooting is that they continue to announce, more than two weeks after the incident, that 49 to 50 people were killed. This is the same number stated on June 12, 2016, the morning of the tragedy. Yet the Orlando Regional Medical Center reported via Twitter on June 16 that nine additional people had died in the hospital, while six were still in critical condition. This means 58 or more have perished as a result of the shooting. Why is this figure not reported? Another strange fact we’ve discussed at Quemado Institute, and which political analyst Paul Craig Roberts has pointed out, is that not one single eye-witness on-site photo or video of the event or victims has appeared on Twitter or the Internet, a seemingly impossible omission. Roberts concludes the event might never have happened . . . MORE>>
/ Is the US Pursuing a Rogue Policy by Waging Undeclared War Against Russia? (VIDEO) / By Stephen F. Cohen / The Nation / June 22, 2016 / Quemado Institute repost / June 26, 2016 / Washington’s NATO buildup on Russia’s borders, its refusal to cooperate with Moscow in Syria and Ukraine, and its anti-Putin propaganda form an ominous pattern. Nation contributing editor Stephen F. Cohen and John Batchelor continue their weekly discussions of the new US-Russian Cold War. (Previous installments are at TheNation.com.) Cohen raises three “hypothetical” and heretical questions for discussion. Does the recent escalation of anti-Russian behavior by Washington, from its growing NATO military buildup on Russia’s western borders and refusal to cooperate with Moscow against the Islamic State in Syria to the Obama administration’s refusal to compel its government in Kiev to implement . . .

By Karl Pomeroy / Quemado Institute / June 24, 2016 / Vladimir Putin, Paul Craig Roberts, Donald Trump and other world observers continue to warn about the growing threat of major nuclear war. NATO’s escalation at Russia’s borders has created a volatile arms imbalance, contrived by Western leaders under the pretext of defending Europe against Russian or Iranian aggression. Let’s be clear. Putin’s Russia poses no threat to Europe, nor has there been any recent Russian aggression. Ukraine was destabilized by an American-sponsored coup. After Crimea voted to join Russia, Putin . . .

In Praise Of Ignorant Politicians … Unschooled In Beltway Delusions / by David Stockman / June 21, 2016 / Quemado Institute repost June 22, 2015 / The Imperial City deserves to be sacked by insurgent politicians of the very ignorant kind. That is, outsiders unschooled in its specious groupthink and destructive delusions of grandeur. That’s why Donald Trump’s challenge to the beltway’s permanent bipartisan ruling class is so welcome. He is largely ignorant of the neocon and war hawk catechisms and sophistries propounded by joints like the Council on Foreign Relations. But owing to his overweening self-confidence, he doesn’t hesitate to lob foreign policy audibles, as it were, from the Presidential campaign’s line of scrimmage. It is these unpredictable outbursts of truth and common sense, not his bombast, bad manners and bigotry, that has the Acela Corridor in high dudgeon. The Donald’s establishment bettors are deathly afraid that he might confirm to the unwashed . . . MORE>>
Introduction by Karl Pomeroy / Quemado Institute / June 20, 2016 / Paul Craig Roberts, political analyst, blogger and former United States Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy, proposes in the article below that the Orlando mass shooting, which allegedly left some 50 victims dead, may not have actually happened—or at least, there is reason to doubt its occurrence due to a suspicious lack of evidence. Where were all the videos and photos taken by eye-witness observers? …. / Orlando Wrap-up / By Paul Craig Roberts / A few of my readers are still trying to help me to prove the official Orlando shooting story line.

Interventionism Is a Rotten Tree with Rotten Fruit / By Jacob G. Hornberger / Hornberger’s Blog / Ron Paul Institute / June 17, 2016 / Fifty-one State Department officials are calling on President Obama to expand U.S. interventionism in Syria by initiating a bombing campaign against the Syrian government. Apparently they’re not satisfied with the great “success” that their philosophy of interventionism has brought to Iraq, Libya, Syria, Pakistan, Yemen and the rest of the Middle East. They want the U.S. national-security state’s death machine to bring even more death and destruction than it has already brought to that part of the world for the past 25 years. It would be difficult to find anything more incredible and audacious than that. The Pentagon, the CIA, the NSA, and the rest of the military-industrial complex . . . MORE>>

Demonstrating the reality that the “soft power” of diplomacy is in fact just a front for the “hard power” of bombs, these “diplomats” demanded the administration immediately initiate: “[A] judicious use of stand-off and air weapons, which would undergird and drive a more focused and hard-nosed US-led diplomatic process.” Yes, to these supposed trained “diplomats,” the “diplomatic process” consists of making final demands after the military has bombed . . .

Clinton Discussed Top Secret CIA Drone Info, Approved Drone Strikes, Via Her Blackberry / By Peter Van Buren / Ron Paul Institute / Quemado Institute / June 16, 2016 / A new report in the Wall Street Journal reveals emails in which then-Secretary of State Clinton approved CIA drone assassinations in Pakistan from her unsecured Blackberry. Top Secret/SAP Messages: The timing and location of these strikes are considered Top Secret/SAP [special access program], in that revealing such data could allow the targeted humans to escape, and embarrass U.S. ally Pakistan, whom many believe is tacitly allowing the United States to conduct such military operations inside its sovereign territory. At specific issue are 22 emails that were on Clinton’s private server. These messages were not publicly released, withheld entirely. However, the broad contents were leaked to the Journal by anonymous. . . MORE>>
Introduction by Karl Pomeroy / Quemado Institute / June 6, 2016 / Political analyst Diana Johnstone, in the article posted below, warns of the dangers of a Hillary Clinton presidency and constrasts her hawkish Korean policy with Donald Trump’s more reasonable stance. The commentary is brilliant, with the exception of two statements. The author contends: “Trump is groping clumsily, at times idiotically, toward a major shift in US foreign policy. He is ill-prepared for the task. If ever elected, he would have to fire the neocons and take on a whole new team of experts to educate and guide him. That would be something of a miracle.” Trump may seem clumsy to those who overlook the opposition he faces among corrupt globalists and entrenched transnational powers. To have any impact on that morass of self-serving oligarchs, the billionaire. . . . MORE>>
Hillary Rejects ‘America First’ / By Patrick J. Buchanan / Patrick Buchanan website / June 2, 2016 / Quemado Institute / June 6, 2016 / “Clinton to Paint Trump as a Risk to World Order.” Thus did page one of Thursday’s New York Times tee up Hillary Clinton’s big San Diego speech on foreign policy. Inside the Times, the headline was edited to underline the point: “Clinton to Portray Trump as Risk to the World.” The Times promoted the speech as “scorching,” a “sweeping and fearsome portrayal of Mr. Trump, one that the Clinton campaign will deliver like a drumbeat to voters in the coming months.” What is happening here? As Donald Trump is splitting off blue-collar Democrats on issues like America’s broken borders and Bill Clinton’s trade debacles like NAFTA, Hillary Clinton is trying to peel off independents and Republicans by painting Trump as “temperamentally unfit” to be commander . . .

Hillary Clinton’s New Anti-Trump Ad Misses the Mark / By Matt Taibbi / Rolling Stone / May 25, 2016 / Conclusion by Kennedy Applebaum / Quemado Institute / Clinton accuses Trump of “rooting” for a crash caused by her own donors. / A new attack ad put out by the Hillary Clinton campaign this week achieves the near-impossible, making Donald Trump look wronged and (almost) like a victim. More believably, it makes the Democrats look sleazy and disingenuous in comparison. The ad begins with a picture of a grinning Trump and the words, “In 2006, Donald Trump was hoping for a real estate crash.” It proceeds to a series of grim scenes from the financial crisis. Against a Roger and Me-esque montage of blighted neighborhoods, it reads off stats: “9 million Americans lost their jobs. 5 million people lost their homes.” . . . MORE>>

Introduction by Karl Pomeroy / Quemado Institute / March 31, 2016
That the Western mainstream media is a factory for lies, propaganda and fabrication has never been more evident than in the current presidential elections. The lies pile up by the day: Hillary hasn’t committed any crime (despite sending classified data over an unclassified network, a federal offense); Trump’s four bankruptcies make him unfit to lead (even though his other 96 businesses were successful); Cruz is eligible for President despite being born in Canada (although Obama had to “prove” he was born in the US) … the list is endless. In three revealing editorials below, political analysts Paul Craig Roberts, Arjun Walia of Global Research, and James F. Tracy also of Global Research, expose shocking facts about CIA and government direct manipulation . . . MORE>>
Donald Trump’s Foreign Policy Views Reflect Sentiments of People / By Andrei Akulov for SCF / Strategic Culture Foundation / Posted at Quemado Institute / March 30, 2016
On March 22, Donald Trump carried delegate-rich Arizona by a wide margin. He easily defeated his opponent (Ted Cruz), taking all 58 of its Republican delegates and adding to his delegate lead despite Mr Cruz’s easy victory in Utah. Those Republicans who hoped to stop Mr Trump suffered another blow. If not defeated in Wisconsin in two weeks, he is unlikely to be stopped from clinching the Republican nomination in June. Fully three-quarters of Republican primary voters expect Mr Trump to be their party’s nominee. Having won in eighteen states, the candidate is close to nearly forty-eight percent of the delegates. It brings into focus Mr. Trump’s stance on key foreign policy issues. In his interview with CNN ahead of March 22 Western Tuesday vote (Arizona, Idaho and Utah), Donald Trump said the US should rethink . . . MORE>>
