Wanting Improved Ties with Russia Considered Heresy. “Deep State” Supporters Want Trump Removed From Office

Written by Stephen Lendman; Originally appeared at GlobalResearch

Anti-Russia sentiment in Washington matches McCarthy era witch-hunt hysteria.

It’s more dangerous because of bipartisan hawks infesting Congress and the administration in key defense, national security and intelligence positions.

Instead of Dwight Eisenhower warning of the dangers of the military/industrial complex in his farewell address, chicken hawks Bill and Hillary Clinton, Bush/Cheney, Obama, and now Trump consider muscular militarism a good thing, enormous risks ignored.

Trump is in trouble anyway. Deep State Hillary supporters want him delegitimized, undermined and removed from office – aiming at key officials in his administration, perhaps prelude to replacing him a more easily controlled figurehead like Pence.

Trump fired National Security Advisor Michael Flynn over nothing, bowing to opposition forces wanting him out – solely for being soft on Russia, wanting improved relations.

So does AG Jeff Sessions, why he’s targeted for removal, not for speaking to Russia’s ambassador to Washington when a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Undemocratic Democrats and screaming headlines call for his head, wanting no change in hardline policy toward Moscow, virtually certain to get it, one of many broken Trump campaign pledges, more to come while he claims otherwise.

On Thursday, Sessions shamefully recused himself from federal investigations into the 2016 presidential campaign, related to (nonexistent) Russia election hacking – groundless claims with evidence.

FBI investigations so far found nothing, including about allegations of Trump financial ties to Russian pubic or private figures.

Witch-hunt investigations continue, checking phony allegations of relations between Trump aides and Moscow.

In a Thursday statement, Sessions said he “met with the relevant senior career (Justice) Department officials to discuss whether (to) recuse (himself) from any matters arising from the campaigns for President of the United States.”

“Having concluded those meetings today, I have decided to recuse myself from any existing or future investigations of any matters related in any way to the campaigns for President of the United States,” he said.

I have taken no actions regarding any such matters, to the extent they exist.

In a statement on Facebook, Trump said “Jeff Sessions is an honest man. He did not say anything wrong. He could have stated his response more accurately, but it was clearly not intentional.”

This whole narrative is a way of saving face for Democrats losing an election that everyone thought they were supposed to win.

The Democrats are overplaying their hand. They lost the election and now, they have lost their grip on reality. The real story is all of the illegal leaks of classified and other information. It is a total witch hunt!

Sessions remains AG, for how long remains to be seen. Pro-Hillary deep state long knives aren’t through with him. Other administration officials close to Trump are vulnerable.

Will he stick by his people responsibly or throw them to the wolves one-by-one – undermining himself in the process?

What’s going on is clear – an aggressive deep state, media supported, orchestrated campaign to delegitimize Trump, weaken him irreparably, perhaps ahead of removing him from office by impeachment and conviction, resignation or something more sinister.

At the same time, it aims to maintain hostility toward Russia and Vladimir Putin, risking direct confrontation – unthinkable possible nuclear war, madness if launched, …

    Non-US readers have to understand that most of the anti-Russian propaganda they see from the U.S. is manufactured by our MSM, and our MSM is totally subservient to the Tel Aviv-based Israeli mafia oligarchs and theirJewish oligarch sycophants here in the U.S. The emphasis being on mafia here. The fact that the oligarchs happen to be Jewish is inconsequential – it has nothing to do with religion, race or culture. It has everything to do with greedy criminals and nothing else.

    The Tel Aviv mafia faction (very close with the Likud party) have a death wish for Russia because they were booted out of that country while their (currently Moscow-based) Jewish mafia rivals were allowed to stay and are on friendly terms (in a business sense) with Putin. Russia-haters are just the Jewish mafia faction of oligarchs that lost and got booted out by Putin. The Tel Aviv mafia was not quite through pillaging Russia after the end of the Soviet Union and wanted to continue stealing everything from the Russian people. It’s no secret the grand prize for them was Russia’s oil. They lost, their rivals won and now they are pissed off. What they can’t have, they want to destroy – it’s more about power than money. The Jewish mafia oligarchs that remain in Russia are not ‘good guys’ by any means – they are greedy thieves as well. They’re just more well-behaved than the greedy Tel Aviv mob losers that got booted out a few decades ago.

    The Tel Aviv mafia constantly telegraph their hate through U.S. media stooges they own. In the past, they were also able to do this through neocon, Israeli-firster U.S. lawmakers. Trump winning the election and mocking the U.S. press for their ‘fake news’ has infuriated them even more. Anti-Trump lawmakers in our congress are encouraged by the Tel Aviv mafia to keep attacking Trump for his pro-Russian views. The whole “U.S. hates Russia” charade is mostly leftovers from a Jewish mob war in Russia ended by Putin.

    Does the U.S. really hate Russia and want WWIII or a nuclear war? No, but the faction of the Jewish mafia that controls the U.S. (and lots of international) press certainly wants everyone on earth to think so. We have those man-on-the-street interviews in the U.S. that ask common people about why we should hate Russia and nobody can give an answer. Worse yet (for the Jewish MSM mafia), more ‘little people’ will say they don’t hate Russia – mainstream media and politicians do. They don’t understand why that is so, but they understand that someone else (MSM, politicians) are trying to sell them a story about Russia that they don’t believe.

    It’s difficult to understand that from outside the U.S. when the MSM message from us is unrelenting on Russia – even though most people on earth know not to trust the U.S. MSM. If you understand what’s really behind this manufactured hate, then it makes more sense. The real danger here is that the U.S. Israeli-firster Congress may believe their own MSM lies too much and end up provoking the Russians (not that we haven’t already).

    Trump’s idea was to get better relations with Russia in order to have a free hand to pursue Israel’s objectives of getting rid of Assad and destroying the Hezbollah and Iran. It was just a trick. Trump does not care about Russia or China, his objective is to help Israel to build Eretz Israel. That is why today he is joining KSA in their genocide of the Yemenis and is concocting a plan to balkanize Syria.
