On Thursday, we presented our analysis of the shameless impeachment charade which occurred Wednesday in the House of Representatives. We emphasized that which passed by most unnoticed, as being its most significant event.
Two State Department bureaucrats, George Kent and William A Taylor, inculcated with the British imperial view of the world, defended that view as being central to the entire post-war “order,” and portrayed the President of the United States as a bumbling uninformed character who would topple that glorious order solely for some personal gain.
One of them, George Kent, went so far as to portray the neo-Nazi thugs used by the British and the Obama Administration to conduct the 2013-2014 coup in Ukraine, as equivalent to the Minutemen of our Revolution, and U.S. aid to keep the war in Ukraine going, as in the tradition of Lafayette and von Steuben. Then, within one paragraph, Kent was praising his old professor Zbigniew Brzezinski and Henry Kissinger as the paragons of virtue— whose 21st Century doppelgaengers were the key State Department witnesses now testifying against the President.
Democrats fell all over themselves in fawning praise of this “legacy.” Republicans were afraid to touch it; most of the Senators who will vote on the President’s impeachment are up to their ears in supporting it. Ukraine’s viability for years to come has been ruined in a blood-soaked ethnic cleansing occurring in the Donbass in the wake of the 2014 coup, conducted by neo-Nazis. Most of the thousands lost were citizens of Eastern Ukraine of Russian heritage and inclinations. Yet, Adam Schiff, George Kent, and William Taylor lied outright about this, portraying the dead as brave Ukrainians fighting Russia. Our State Department calls the coup and the ensuing war in Eastern Ukraine the “Revolution of Dignity.” Kissinger and Brzezinski together are guilty of more war crimes and genocides than perhaps anyone in the 20th Century, and in doing so they created many of the axiomatic views of the world propounded enthusiastically by Kent and Taylor yesterday, to the applause of House Democrats. As Senator Rand Paul will tell you, he, like the President, is an island of one in the Senate when it comes to issues of war and peace. For those who confidently predict that impeachment will die in the Senate—have you looked at your Senators’ contributors lately, or the sins that can be dredged up from their past life, to spring in a moment of crisis? Do you understand whom you are actually fighting?
Tucker Carlson ventured out to take this on directly in his show Wednesday, putting up clips of Donald Trump speaking during 2016 and saying, simply, “Wouldn’t it be nice if we all got along with Russia?” That, and the fevered opposition to it by those who cling to the past, and to their own graft in the intelligence community and foreign policy apparatus, constitute the real battle lines in the ongoing coup, Carlson said. Donald Trump promised to end the permanent warfare state; his voters voted for him to do that. But, Tucker then fell into his stupid rants about China.
Nonetheless, on Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, once again struggling to keep her dentures in her mouth and noting that she could no longer chew gum, instantaneously confirmed exactly what Carlson had said. “Trump is an agent of Putin,” she told her press availability Thursday, explaining what impeachment has been and is all about. Ray McGovern, in an article in Consortium News, presented a short and accurate sketch of U.S. and British perfidy in Ukraine, the policy which the two idiots who testified yesterday are responsible for enforcing. He neglected to note the obvious point: that pursuit of the policy outlined by Kent, Ukrainian membership in NATO is a hair trigger for the nuclear war, which could annihilate us all.
The process undertaken in the House to date, is rigged in ways not stated so far. There will be more “bombshell” surprises, since we are witnessing an internal coup, with the British and their U.S. intelligence community allies determined to unseat this President by waging war from within the Administration. As Mark Zaid, the so-called whistleblower’s attorney said in his infamous texts, when one internal seditionist falls, “two will rise in their place.” And the biggest potential surprise is something neither the Republican or Democratic partisans understand— the dynamic within the world’s physical economy which appears to be approaching another boundary condition, at least as perceived by the Bank of England’s Mark Carney, and others who propose a bankers’ dictatorship to handle the coming new collapse.
