Is This An American Maidan?
By Kennedy Applebaum
January 14, 2017
Important update: January 15, 2017
With five days to go before the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump, it looks as if a planned attempted coup d’etat against the American government is underway. We have CIA disruption, George Soros backing, Clinton-Obama plotting, and ominous signs from the Pentagon, which in a highly suspicious move, has ordered Maj. Gen. Errol R. Schwartz, Head of the D.C. National Guard in charge of inauguration security, to step down at 12:01 January 20, the moment Trump is sworn in.
What can be the intent of this disruptive anti-American move, other than to set the stage for violent protest?
The circumstances do not look too different from those that preceeded the Maidan coup in Kiev, and the backstage supporting cast—CIA, George Soros, the Rothschilds, the Clintons—are the same. They prey upon the bleeding hearts of the Snowflake crowd, convincing these out-of-touch people that to overthrow governments in the name of “democracy” is noble. The Snowflakes do not bother to check the facts. Their virtuous hearts throb with pride that they are finally doing something good for the world—a world they have largely demolished through their murderous neocon policies.
Is this a Maidan coup?
No, there is no real coup to take place. The United States is not Ukraine. For all its flaws, the U.S. has a long established history of tradition that is not easily disrupted. Nevertheless, the heart-throbbing do-gooders of the Obama-Hillary camp are “damned-if-they-don’t’ determined to disrupt what should be a beautiful and triumphant inauguration ceremony.
The most dangeorus scenario to look out for would be a false flag operation, analogous to the 2014 CIA sniper shootings in Kiev’s Maidan Square. Those murders were carried out to cast blame on Viktor Yanukovich, Ukraine’s democratically elected President, ostensibly justifying his forcible ouster and the country’s takeover by parliament. Such a false flag in the U.S. would be meant to cast blame on Trump, and hand power over to Congress.
The “Russian hacker” scam is already something of a false flag, casting blame on Putin and therefore Trump by implication. Fortunately, the Generals on Trump’s team present a powerful deterrent to sabotage by the U.S. military. A false flag event would no doubt have to be carried out by the CIA.
Update January 15: What Trump’s security and the DC National Guard need to watch out for, in analogy with Maidan, are snipers in the interiors of any buildings within range. The CIA-led snipers at Maidan Square hid inside a large building at the end of the square, from which they could shoot through windows at demonstrators without being seen, and then blame Yanukovich for giving his security police the order to shoot. The danger on January 20 is not that snipers would take aim at Trump or his entourage. Quite the opposite. They would take aim at protesters, who had been deliberately provoked, then blame the killings on Trump’s security forces. This means every building within range of the demonstrators must be heavily guarded, not just at entry points, but throughout the interiors during the entire event.
It is nevertheless hard to imagine how the CIA might conduct violence in such a way as to blame Trump. All previous attempts to stop the President-elect have not only failed, but backfired. I am keeping the faith that this possible coup attempt will backfire as well, preparing the way for Donald Trump to be one of the greatest and most successful Presidents in American history. Trump knows how to turn adversity to his advantage. He’ll no doubt manage well.
Still, as conscientious Americans, we need to be aware of the seditious forces at work. Ukraine’s Maidan coup could have been prevented were the population sufficiently cognizent of the subsersive factions threatening their country—George Soros, the CIA, the Rothschilds and the whole flaming neocon aristocracy of Europe and the United States. What right had any of these interventionists to destroy that country? None.
And these same interventionists have no place in the American electoral process. As we know this and speak this confidently through the coming days, we can dispel the illusion that the coup plotters have any chance of success. We can negate their efforts through truth.

What Obama Means By “The Russian Threat”
By Paul Craig Roberts
Paul Craig Roberts Website
January 14, 2017
What does Obama mean when he alleges Moscow “continues to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States.” He does not mean that Russia is a threat in the ordinary meaning of the word. To understand what Obama means by threat, it is necessary to understand what is the foreign policy of the United States. The foreign policy of the US is to establish American hegemony over the world.
Russia and China are large countries determined to remain sovereign and not fall under Washington’s vassalage. As Russia and China are immune from American invasion and have the capability to destroy the entirety of the United States with nuclear weapons, both countries are capable of standing up to Washington when Washington’s pursuit of hegemony conflicts with their national interests.
In other words, both Russia and China are constraints on US unilateralism. This is what Obama means when he says Russia is a threat to the foreign policy of the US.
Tucker Carlson and Glenn Greenwald Discuss
Deep State War Vs. Trump
January 14, 2017
Journalist Glenn Greenwald, who is not a fan of President-elect Trump, appeared on Tucker Carlson tonight to discuss the dangerous ongoing effort among powerful anti-Trump factions within the US Government’s “Deep State,” who have collaborated with members of the Democratic Party and the traditionally liberal media to inflict maximum damage on the incoming President.
Recall Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s ominous “six ways from Sunday” comment from 10 days ago. Greenwald, an accomplished litigator, journalist, and author, does a masterful job illustrating the players, motives, and potential fallout from this dangerous effort within the US Government’s intelligence apparatus. Greenwald goes deep, discussing how Trump’s election ruined the plan for regime change in Syria, specifically mentioning, among other things, that the deep state was waiting for Obama to leave office before executing their plan:
“The number one foreign policy priority of the CIA over the last four to five years has been the proxy war they’re waging in Syria to remove Bashar Al Assad – and Hillary Clinton was quite critical of Obama for constraining them. She wanted to escalate that war to unleash the CIA, to impose a no-fly zone in Syria to confront Russia, whereas Trump took the exact opposite position. He said we have no business in Syria trying to change the government, we ought to let the Russia and Assad go free and killing ISIS and Al Quaeda and whoever else they want to kill.
“He [Trump] was a threat to the CIA’s primary institutional priority of regime change in Syria. Beyond that, Clinton wanted a much more confrontational and belligerent posture towards Moscow, which the CIA has been acrimonious with for decades, whereas Trump wanted better relations. They viewed Trump as a threat to their institutional pre-eminence to their ability to get their agenda imposed on Washington.
“What you’re seeing is actually quite dangerous. There really is at this point obvious open warefare between this un-elected, but very powerful faction that resides in Washington and sees Presidents come and go – on the one hand, and the person that the American democracy elected to be elected on the other. There’s clearly extreme conflict and subversion taking place.”

D.C. National Guard Chief Fired Days Before Trump Inauguration:
“The Timing Is Extremely Unusual”
By Tyler Durden
January 13, 2017
It doesn’t make sense to can the general in the middle of an active deployment,” rages D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson (D) after Maj. Gen. Errol R. Schwartz, who heads the D.C. National Guard and is an integral part of overseeing the inauguration, has been ordered removed from command effective Jan. 20, 12:01 p.m., just as Donald Trump is sworn in as president.
As The Washington Post reports, Maj. Gen. Errol R. Schwartz’s departure will come in the midst of the presidential ceremony, classified as a national special security event — and while thousands of his troops are deployed to help protect the nation’s capital during an inauguration he has spent months helping to plan.
“The timing is extremely unusual,” Schwartz said in an interview Friday morning, confirming a memo announcing his ouster that was obtained by The Washington Post. During the inauguration, Schwartz would command not only the members of the D.C. guard but also an additional 5,000 unarmed troops sent in from across the country to help. He also would oversee military air support protecting the nation’s capital during the inauguration. “My troops will be on the street,” Schwartz, who turned 65 in October, said, “I’ll see them off but I won’t be able to welcome them back to the armory.” He said that he would “never plan to leave a mission in the middle of a battle.” Schwartz, who was appointed to head the guard by President George W. Bush in 2008, maintained the position through President Obama’s two terms.
He said his orders came from the Pentagon but that he doesn’t know who made the decision. D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson (D) blasted the decision to remove Schwartz, especially on Inauguration Day. “It doesn’t make sense to can the general in the middle of an active deployment,” Mendelson said. He added that Schwartz’s sudden departure would be a long-term loss for the District. “He’s been really very good at working with the community and my impression was that he was good for the Guard.” Unlike in states, where the governor appoints the National Guard commander, in the District that duty falls to the president.
As we noted previously, radical leftists are planning to make January 20th the most chaotic Inauguration Day in American history. Their stated goal is to “disrupt” the Inauguration festivities as much as possible, and they are planning a wide range of “actions” to achieve that stated goal. Some of the more moderate groups are using terms such as “civil resistance” and “civil disobedience”, but others are openly talking about “blockades”, jumping barricades, throwing projectiles and “citywide paralysis”. My hope is that all of their efforts will turn out to be a big flop, but it is important to understand that these groups are well funded, highly organized and extremely motivated. The election of Donald Trump has been perhaps the single most galvanizing moment for the radical left in modern American history, and they are working very hard to turn January 20th into a major political statement.
In fact, just recently one activist group took out a full page ad in the New York Times: Thousands of activists, journalists, scientists, entertainers, and other prominent voices took out a full-page call to action in the New York Times on Wednesday making clear their rejection of President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence with the simple message:
“Stop the Trump/Pence regime before it starts! In the name of humanity we refuse to accept a fascist America!” the ad states, followed by a list of signatories that includes scholar Cornel West; author Alice Walker; Chase Iron Eyes of the Standing Rock Sioux; educator Bill Ayers; poet Saul Williams; CNN‘s Marc Lamont Hill; Carl Dix of the Communist Party USA; and numerous others. The ad pointed people to refusefascism.org, and it asserted that Trump must be stopped whether he was legitimately elected or not.
“Trump promises to inflict repression and suffering on people in this country, to deport millions, to increase violence up to the use of nuclear weapons on people across the globe, and to inflict catastrophes upon the planet itself. He has assembled a cabinet of Christian fundamentalist fanatics, war mongers, racists, science deniers. NO! His regime must not be allowed to consolidate. We REFUSE to accept a Fascist America!”
If you go to refusefascism.org, you will discover that the protests that they are organizing in Washington D.C. will begin on January 14th. They say that they want to “stop the Trump-Pence regime before it starts”, and they hope to have protests going “every day and every night” without interruption through at least January 20th.
Quemado Institute comments: For the record, Trump is about as far from “fascist” as a politician could be. He has proven again and again that he is egalitarian, non-racist, and proactively supportive of the average American citizen. Any allegations to the contrary are diversionary propaganda. This sort of slander, if it undermines the democratic process, should be regarded as treason.
Is This The Coup In America? “U.S. Troops On Russian Border” To Start War Before Inauguration
By Tyler Durden
January 13, 2017
Is there a coup underway, while America is in the transition period, and before Trump swears in as the 45th president of the United States? How real is the clash between the rogue Manhattan billionaire and the intelligence gang behind the throne? Who will win the struggle for power over foreign policy? These are serious times and require serious considerations.
The U.S. sent an entire armored brigade to the Russian border, and Vladimir Putin is preparing as if for war. Missile defense systems are raised; tall claims and serious charges have been leveled; diplomatic relations have chilled to a permafrost.
Several Russian diplomats have turned up dead recently, including one murdered in front of cameras during a dramatic assassination in Turkey. Russia has bucked U.S. order in the Middle East, and carved out a potential peace deal in Syria without their consultation.
Things are reaching a flashpoint, and the system is concerned about controlling President-elect Trump given his rumored friendliness with Putin and plans to drop sanctions.
Will there be a “shock” designed to correct Trump’s foreign policy, and set-off the ticking time bomb between East and West into all-out hostilities?
Though these two world powers have clashed repeatedly in recent years, there several key factors that make this round extra alarming – and put a peaceful transition into question of exploding into total war, and an undermining force from within the deep state, CIA and shadow government:
Until Donald Trump swears in and settles into the White House, the U.S. remains in a strange air, with an open window for a coup to take place, or a major unforeseen disruption (including something like a terrorist attack). If the deep state wants to start a war which President Trump will be forced to finish, they can. If the deep state wants that same war to block Trump from taking power, or from making major decisions, they will.
With claims that Russia hacked the U.S. election, foreign policy has never been more warlike. Despite lacking evidence, and a politically-heavy spin on events, the powers-that-be intend to drive home the narrative that Putin crossed the line, while Trump is his puppet, and the alternative media his mesmerized “fake news” cheerleaders. This narrative is false, but could fan the flames for war. The new Cold War has been solidified; the aggressive rhetoric in Washington, and highly militarized movements such something big is coming down . . . READ MORE>>
Protest Aims to ‘Take Down’ WhiteHouse.Gov on Inauguration Day
Washington Free Beacon
January 14, 2017
A leading public-relations service blasted and then removed a news release this week highlighting a campaign to protest the inauguration of Donald Trump by crashing WhiteHouse.gov. PR Newswire, a global news-release distribution service, circulated a release on Thursday highlighting a campaign launched by Protester.io, a digital protest organizing platform, to “take down” the White House website next Friday in protest of Trump’s inauguration.
“On January 20th, hundreds of thousands of Americans are going to Washington, DC to march in protest of the inauguration of Donald Trump. Millions more around the country will be joining the cause from home. If you can’t make it to Washington DC on inauguration day, you can still participate by occupying whitehouse.gov online,” the release read.
“Why is it important to participate? Isn’t this just another election? We haven’t lost our democracy yet, but it is most definitely under threat. The only way we’re going to defend and revive our democracy is by mobilizing.” . . . READ MORE>>
