"How Turkey’s Crisis Might Fracture NATO" (Auerback):
"As far as the Russians are concerned, Turkey provides an opportunity for payback for 20 years of hostile American foreign policy actions—the eastward expansion of NATO to Russia’s borders, the U.S. support for the Maidan coup in Ukraine, the destruction of Libya, and the regime change crusade against Assad. These happened under previous American administrations, Clinton, Bush and Obama. There were of course many liberals and progressives who were uncomfortable with the Obama/Clinton foreign policy. But they are now uncomfortable acknowledging these concerns for fear that gives aid and comfort to Trump, as well as legitimizing his foreign policies. For that reason, those liberals and progressives, who might otherwise be open to more measured relations with Russia, are reluctant, even unwilling, to ascribe any U.S. responsibility for the current breakdown in U.S.-Russia relations, because it would be seen as disloyal to the resistance to Trump. Hence, the Clinton and the Obama years in particular are now beyond reproach. Which in turn exacerbates the prevailing Russophobia, and therefore gives Moscow yet more incentive to exploit the situation in Turkey. Especially as Russia sees the latest round of sanctions directed against it by Washington as a heightened form of economic warfare.
Picking off Turkey would be a major geopolitical win for Moscow, given that the country is viewed by Washington as key to the American strategy of splitting Eurasia and blocking Eurasian integration. Turkey is also essential to the U.S. strategy of encirclement of Russia—control of the Black Sea and countering Russia’s breakout with Crimea and Syria (as well as potentially offering the EU a piece of a pipeline venture that could mitigate Europe’s dependence on Russian gas); Turkey plays an equally important role for the U.S. in terms of supporting Takfiri/Salafist destabilization of Syria and Iraq and blocking the “Shia corridor from Iran to Hezbollah,” as well as breaking Israel’s isolation in the Middle East (beyond the tacit alliance with Saudi Arabia) while helping ensure Iran’s isolation. And finally, Turkey is viewed by Washington as an essential ally in controlling the eastern Mediterranean and the eastern Mediterranean energy resources.
Which means (as usual) that Trump’s “bull in a China shop” approach to foreign policy, will create unpredictable knock-on effects well beyond the usual run-of-the-mill emerging markets crisis. Emerging economies as a whole can all expect to experience some adjustment/dislocation as the global central banking community continues to withdraw monetary stimulus. But Turkey’s unique geopolitical position has virtually guaranteed that it will have ramifications that extend well beyond the balance sheets of a few exposed European banks or peripheral emerging economies. A break with NATO may well mean lost leverage for Turkey with the West, but Erdoğan may well think it is essential for his political survival—and that will trump other considerations for the time being. As for Turkey’s love of NATO perks, perhaps the Council on Foreign Relations still believes they are worth something (along with those few Kemalist Turkish officers who have survived the Erdoğan/Gulen purges), but it would be astonishing if the average Turkish voter thinks NATO is in his corner."
"Sanctions, Sanctions, Sanctions – The Final Demise Of The Dollar Hegemony?" (Koenig).  Americans seem to have lost sight of the fact that sanctions are sanctions on themselves, and the cumulative effect of all these sanctions is to increasingly restrict the ability of Americans to carry on business in the world, to the benefit of their competitors.  The business still goes on, just to the profit of people who aren't American.  Even I am surprised that shekel bribery power is so strong that it removes all common sense.

"Trump-supporting Pentagon analyst stripped of security clearance after Stefan Halper complaints" (Scarborough).  "Pentagon Whistleblower Demoted After Exposing Millions Paid To FBI Spy Halper, Clinton Crony" (Durden).  "Who Hired Stefan Halper?" (Neumayr):
"The question Nixon once asked about the CIA remains relevant: “What the hell do those clowns do out there in Langley?” Under Obama, the answer was that they sat around a table with Brennan and Strzok and cooked up schemes to spy on Donald Trump."
"Jew Media Stresses Importance of Free Press While Trying to Shut Down Independent Media Voices" (Rogers). "An Open Letter to the Colluding Press" (Spicer/Hicks).  "Former CIA Director John Brennan’s brief for dismantling democracy" (Kishore).  It is important never to forget that this is the same (((media))) that straight up lied about, for example, WMDs, including ongoing massive lies in aid of starting wars against Russia and Iran.  It is impossible to take their self-serving claims about their importance seriously.

Multipolarity

"(((DuckDuckGo)))" "Why would someone trust DuckDuckGo or other providers with a similar privacy policy?" "Duck Duck Go: Illusion of Privacy".  Also.

"Some Hard Truth on Browder and Other Putin Enemies" (Butler).  Lots of details of the operation.

"Riding on Qatari wings, multipolarity arrives in the Middle East" (Bhadrakumar):
"Yet, the Qatar-Turkey axis will not project itself as a strategic defiance of the United States – although the Qatari emir is well aware of Erdogan’s face-off with the Trump administration. Nonetheless, what adds some spice to this heady brew is that the Trump administration has been unabashedly partial toward the Saudi-Emirati line-up in the Gulf region.

A recent American report even claimed that former US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson lost his job because he stood in the way of a Saudi-Emirati plan to attack Qatar.

At any rate, the apt description for the Turkish-Qatari axis is that it is a manifestation of the arrival of multipolarity in the politics of the Middle East. Both Turkey and Qatar have good relations with Iran.

Although US Central Command is headquartered in Doha, Al-Thani also has a warm relationship Russian President Vladimir Putin, too.

In the power dynamic of the Middle East, the trend toward multipolarity is poised to accelerate. As time passes, conceivably, even Saudi Arabia and the UAE will see the attraction in strengthening their strategic autonomy.

It will be a fallacy, therefore, to continue viewing the Middle East through the Cold War prism, as most US analysts do, as an area of contestation between the big powers – as if the regional states don’t have a mind of their own or multiple options in developing their policies.

Simply put, Turkey or Iran may lean toward Russia, but can never forge a strategic alliance with Moscow. With a view to pushing back at US pressure, they may lean decidedly toward Moscow from time to time, but they have no intentions of surrendering their strategic autonomy.

But to caricature these countries as passive participants in Russia’s Eurasian integration processes will be delusional.

Russia understands this complicated reality, which is not surprising, given Moscow’s historical memory of its highly problematic relationships with Turkey and Iran through centuries in its imperial history. Thus, the Russian policy is not unduly demanding and is willing to accept their nationalist mindset.

On the other hand, the failure of the US policies lies in Washington’s inability to accept equal relationships and its obsession, ‘You’re either with us, or are against us.’

Make no mistake, the European capitals watch with exasperation the Trump administration’s handling of Erdogan – although he is by no means an easy customer to handle. The point is, European countries are closer to Russia in their appreciation of the complexities of the Middle East. Nor are European countries inclined to view Turkey through the Israeli prism.

Therefore, a concerted Western strategy toward Erdogan under US leadership will remain elusive. Germany’s decision to lift its sanctions against Turkey can be seen in this light. Equally, Erdogan is due to pay a state visit to Germany in September."
Again, it is amazing how all this is playing out.  Had MbS/MbZ not conspired against Qatar in a vicious attack, Qatar would be firmly on the sidelines.  Turkey was one of the few countries that stood up for Qatar (the MB connection), and now Qatar is paying Turkey back.

"On Erdogan’s Plan to Defy the US" (Sheikh).  He has some cards to play, and Turkish public opinion appears to be firmly with him.  As in the case in Iran, American over-extension of power has made it impossible to find any unpaid American supporters in the countries under attack.

"Escobar: All Hands On Deck As The Caspian Sails Toward Eurasia Integration" (Escobar).

"Hello – They Lied to You About Iran!" (Vltchek).  "If you Put an old W. Bush crony in Charge of Iran Policy, doesn’t it Signal a War-Like Intention?" (Cole).

"China is Strengthening its Efforts Aimed at Fighting International Terrorism" (Bokarev).  It is not an exaggeration to see the world breaking up into those who fight terrorism, and those, inspired by the Khazar concepts of false flag and pitting the goyim against each other, who abuse terrorism for geopolitical strategic purposes.  Note that China has recently been under a (((media))) PR attack for fighting terrorism: "Thousands of Uyghur Muslims detained in Chinese 'political education' camps" (Jiang) and "China flat out denies the mass incarceration of Xinjiang’s Uyghurs as testimonies trickle out" (Steger).

"Woman Escapes ISIS Sex Slavery Only To Bump Into Former Captor Walking Freely In Germany" (Durden).  Untouchable as he is a 'refugee', a state which puts him above the law.  We're starting to see the beginnings of the disgust at the politicians who have created, intentionally, this sorry state of affairs, which is only getting worse (e.g., importing the 'White Helmet' terrorists into western countries).

Frisson

"In Frantic Text To DOJ's Bruce Ohr, Christopher Steele Hopes "Important Firewalls Will Hold"" (Carter).  He didn't want Comey to blurt out the big conspiracy between American, British and Ukrainian ICs, the Obama Administration, and the Clinton campaign (and its 'donors').

"Trump Strikes Back at ‘Ringleader’ Brennan" (McGovern).  It seems obvious that it was Brennan who was coordinating the conspiratorial attack on the Trump campaign, which was, of course, really an attack on peaceful relations between Russia and the US.

"Mueller Investigation Seeks to Implicate WikiLeaks and Julian Assange in “Russian Interference”" (Cogan).

"Italy’s NATO Racket... A Bridge Too Far" (Cunningham):
"The catastrophic bridge collapse in Italy this week has prompted a public outcry over the country’s crumbling infrastructure and how it is putting lives at risk. But the question the public in Italy and across Europe should be asking is: why are their governments spending extra tens of billions of dollars on NATO militarism, while neglecting vital civilian infrastructure?"
"Pepe Escobar: Economic War On Iran Is War On Eurasian Integration" (Escobar).  "US Sanctions Foster Emergence of Multipolar World" (Savitsky).  "America the Punitive" (Giraldi).  "US-Turkish Alliance Reaches the Point of No Return" (Bhadrakumar).  "The Turkish crisis and the threat of world war" (Van Auken).  The multiple American sanctioning attacks have reached the level of declarations of war, including a declaration of war against Europe (wrecking Turkey wrecks European banks), all with no real American national interest.

You know, it's nice to look at the 'big picture', except why does every single act done by the Americans obviously weaken them and strengthen their opponents?  It is strikingly odd.  The role of shekels in American politics, with the unnecessary American attack on Turkey turning entirely on Turkey's relations with Iran and Russia, both obvious problems for untrammeled Zionism, remains the unspeakable fact of American politics.

"The Entropy Wars" (Prins).  Domestic policy is similarly incoherent.  What we're seeing is the effects of the stresses from two factors occurring simultaneously: 1) the natural winding down of American imperial hegemony (with the 0.1% trying to capture as much wealth as they can on the way down), and 2) the real world contradictions playing out of having foreign policies completely dictated by a foreign power (through bribing and blackmailing its politicians, and controlling the (((media)))).  It is unusual, maybe unprecedented, for both of these stresses to occur at the same time, and the Americans are in a dangerous place, both for themselves and others.

The Turks are woke, but it would probably be more instructive to use the Star of David charts: "Turkish State Media Exposes The American Empire & Its Media" (Durden).

"The Assassination Attempt Against Venezuela’s Maduro" (Pagliccia interviewed by Korybko).  "Venezuela Top Prosecutor: 34 Involved In Failed Assassination of Maduro".

"Freedom Rider: The United States destroys Venezuela’s economy" (Kimberly).

"Facebook vanishes Venezuela-based left-leaning news network again".  I seem to remember a time when the conspiracies were slightly more subtle.  Indefensible censorship based on advice from a NATO puppet?  Jeez!

"A Response to Misinformation on Nicaragua: It Was a Coup, Not a “Massacre”" (Redvers).  As usual, it is 'liberals' who spread the lies, pretending to care about 'human rights'.  The support of these monsters is necessary for Soros to work his color revolution magic.

"Israel’s border interrogations and the ‘MeToo’ cascade" (Ofir).  It has become trendy for Israel to treat young 'liberal' Jews to a slightly enhanced interrogation experience - with no real danger, of course - as an exciting hint of the much worse things done to the goyim (the frisson is a Khazar thing and reminds me of the 'Stalags'), all in order to enhance their status as Zionist skeptics who are 'fixing' the problems of Israel if only the 'anti-Semites' would leave then alone to do so.  Beinart walks away with a cheap thrill and an enhanced reputation as an 'opponent' of turbo-Zionism.  Note how the #metoo analogy is instructively, and weissianly, wrong - Beinart, as a Khazar, was under absolutely no real threat, but Aslan certainly was.

Uncle Tom gets woke:  "Israel’s “Loyal” Druze move into Open Revolt" (Cook).

The British government is beyond satire:  "BBC Crimewatch Reconstruction of Salisbury Poisonings Shelved After Director Gives up and Considers New Career" (Slane).  You might argue that evidence of competence in governing generally starts with an ability to craft, and stick to, a coherent conspiracy Official Story, and the British government is hilariously inept at this, and Brexit, and everything else.

"Fascistbook: ‘Censorship Does Not End Well’". It is curious that the Deep State has traditionally tolerated the deep American tradition of conspiracy hucksters, as harmless and a way for the marginalized to let off steam, so the coordinated attacks on Jones are a novel escalation.

"Canada vs. Saudi Arabia: Illusions and Reality" (Black).  "Canada Complicit in Saudi War Crimes" (Engler).  Canada owes MbS a hearty thanks for pointing out that Trudeau is attempting to build a government based entirely on virtue-signalling.

"Why is Saudi activist Ensaf Haidar courting the Israel lobby?" (Nassar).  Funny how so much purported 'human rights' promotion is just a racket trolling for shekels.

Speaking of Zizek:  "Hot Take: Slavoj Zizek Believes Trump Rode Communist Wave Into Office" (Bratty).  And more:  "Gender Trouble" (so much for 'believe the victim'!).

A strikingly bizarre piece of (presumably paid) MbZ PR to stave off the allegations of the revealed UAE/Saudi/al-Qaeda alliance playing out in Yemen:  "Inside the UAE’s war on al-Qaeda in Yemen".  The lying is so constant and obvious that it is a pure 'the fuck did I just read' experience.

"Barry Sherman cousins say the billionaire owed them a fiduciary duty" (excuse me while I have a laugh):
"Meanwhile, the investigation into the mysterious murders of Sherman and his wife Honey continues. They were found dead in their Toronto home on Dec. 15, though they likely died two days previously. Police have ruled the deaths, by ligature strangulation, a targeted homicide. Eight months into the investigation, there have been no police updates."
A good lawyer should be able to construct a fiduciary duty here, and it was perhaps a tactical mistake for the trial judge to so airily dismiss the concept.

'Seizure' seems ironically appropriate in a Killary context: "Investigative Journalist Found Dead in D.C. Hotel Room Weeks After Reporting Bill Clinton to FBI & DHS for Allegedly Raping Boy".

Live-trolling

"Was Hillary The Real Colluder?" (Durden).  The big story throughout is that Russiagate was a conspiracy between members of the Obama Administration, the American IC, the Clinton campaign, and Ukrainian intelligence (with a lot of input from British intelligence), with the help of anti-Putin figures within Russia (!), to weaken Putin and Russia and start a new Cold War, to culminate, at the 'donor' requests due to Putin's interfering with Zionist imperialist plans, with WWIII and Russian regime change during the inevitable Clinton Administration.  The ultra-Zionist writer Lee Smith is the only person writing about this, though it is strikingly obvious that each 'revelation' about Trump's perfidy actually points back at his enemies and the Clinton 'donors' who ultimately pull all the strings:  "2016 Trump Tower Meeting Looks Increasingly Like a Setup by Russian and Clinton Operatives".  It is amazing how opposite the truth is, based on now available information, from how Russiagate is spun by the (((media))).

Smith (note the vital coordinating role of Bruce Ohr; my emphasis throughout in red):
"The June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between high-ranking members of the Republican presidential  campaign staff and a Russian lawyer with Kremlin ties remains the cornerstone of claims that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election.
A growing body of evidence, however, indicates that the meeting may have been a setup -- part of a broad effort to tarnish the Trump campaign involving Hillary Clinton operatives employed by Kremlin-linked figures and Department of Justice officials. This view, that the real collusion may have taken place among those who arranged the meeting rather than the Trump officials who agreed to attend it, is supported by two disparate lines of evidence pulled together for the first time here: newly released records and a pattern of efforts to connect the Trump campaign to Russia.
The first line of evidence includes emails, texts, and memos recently turned over to Congress by the Department of Justice. They show how closely senior Justice Department officials and the Federal Bureau of Investigation worked with employees of Fusion GPS, a Washington-based research firm reportedly paid $1 million by Clinton operatives to dig up dirt on the Trump campaign.
They reveal that then-Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, the fourth-highest-ranking official at DOJ, coordinated before, during and after the election with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson, who did work for the Clinton campaign and Russians; and former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, who was employed by Simpson.
Those emails, which disclose the topics of discussions but not their details, revolve around two business executives: Donald Trump and Oleg Deripaska, a Russian aluminum magnate close to President Vladimir Putin. Steele was particularly interested in resolving issues concerning Deripaska's U.S. visa, which was revoked in 2006 because of his suspected ties to organized crime. In another sign of the overlapping strands of this story, when Special Counsel Robert Mueller was running the FBI in 2009, the bureau had asked Deripaska to contribute millions of dollars to help locate former FBI agent Robert Levinson, captured in Iran in 2007 while working for the CIA. Levinson remains missing.
The Ohr-Steele-Simpson correspondence appears to include references to the former British spy’s work for Fusion GPS on Trump’s ties to Russia. Months before the election, Steele wrote Ohr to say that he would be back in Washington soon "on business of mutual interest." 
The cozy relationship was bolstered by the fact that the wife of the senior DOJ official, Nellie Ohr, was employed by Fusion GPS.
After Steele was dismissed by the FBI for speaking to the press for an October 31, 2016 report, Bruce Ohr took over the work of relaying Fusion GPS’ opposition research on the Trump campaign directly to the FBI.
The culmination of their combined efforts, the 35-page dossier of unverified Trump/Russia connections, was used by the FBI to secure a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign. The Department of Justice did not respond to RealClearInvestigations’ requests for comment, nor did Glenn Simpson's lawyer, Joshua Levy.
The second line of evidence reframing the Trump Tower meeting -- after the Ohr-Steele-Simpson correspondence – was first reported in June by RealClearInvestigations. It shows that, starting in March 2016, FBI confidential sources and other figures associated with Western intelligence services and the Clinton campaign approached the Trump team promising damaging information on Clinton. The Trump Tower meeting appears to have been the most successful of these approaches, since it was the one instance where the Trump campaign signaled it was willing to receive incriminating information on its opponent.
These two strands of evidence – the DOJ’s collaboration with Clinton-paid researchers and efforts to connect the Trump campaign to Russia – came together in midtown Manhattan on June 9, 2016 at Trump Tower.
At the center of it all was Fusion GPS, which had two clients whose interests were served by the Trump Tower meeting: the Russians and the Clinton campaign."
and (Goldstone was used for the sole purpose of cementing and documenting the trap with a paper trail, for otherwise there would have been no evidence of why Jr. really attended the meeting):
"A lingering mystery of the Trump Tower meeting is the man who helped arrange it, British music publicist Rob Goldstone. On June 3, he emailed Donald Trump Jr. with an offer originating in a meeting in the office of the prosecutor general—Veslenitskaya’s point of contact with the Kremlin. Goldstone promised “official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father."
Trump Jr. promptly responded: "If it's what you say I love it."
The specificity of the phrasing in  Goldstone’s email appears designed to establish the case for collusion: “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”
Even more curious than the wording of Goldstone’s email is the role he played in arranging the meeting. Goldstone, who has kept a low profile since news of the meeting broke in July 2017, testified before Congress that he now regrets his part in it.
According to the dossier, Trump himself as well as aides Paul Manafort and Carter Page were in clandestine contact with the Russian government. “If that was really the case,” former FBI agent Mark Wauck told RealClearInvestigtions, “it’s not clear why the Russian government needed a British music publicist to make an overture. And why would Moscow need to send a Russian lawyer who didn’t speak English to Trump Tower? That tends to confirm that the meeting was intended as a setup.”
On June 9, 2016, Goldstone brought Veselnitskaya to meet with Trump Jr., Manafort and Jared Kushner at Trump Tower. The senior Trump campaign officials were disappointed to find out that she wanted to talk about Browder and his associates.
Trump Jr. cut the appointment with Veselnitskaya short. But if this were a sting operation, engineered by Simpson, with likely assistance from Justice Department officials he is now known to have been in regular contact with, the damage had already been done.
 “The purpose of the meeting,” one congressional investigator told RCI, “was to substantiate the Clinton-funded dossier alleging that Trump was taking dirt on his rivals from the Russians.”"
One issue buried in this is that Putin's 'friends'- Deripaska and Veselnitskaya - may have concluded that Clinton was going to win, and it would be a good idea to get in her good graces by assisting in her schemes.  Veselnitskaya, at least, must have been in on the setup.  That makes Veselnitskaya's anti-Browder actions at the meeting, which are supposed to explain her deception at the purpose of the meeting, a red herring (which worked, as Jr. remains fooled as to what was really going on). From Durden (note the two Simpson-Veselnitskaya dinners which seal the proof of the conspiracy!!!):
"But an earlier investigation by RealClearPolitics showed that as early as March 2016, the FBI, other Western intelligence sources and Clinton campaign operatives contacted the Trump campaign about potentially damaging information about Clinton.
They were in effect live-trolling the campaign.
This is significant. Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Putin-connected lawyer who contacted the Trump campaign about having dirt on Hillary Clinton, was a client of Fusion GPS when she met with Donald Trump Jr. and others in the Trump campaign.
And she was accompanied by a former Soviet military counterintelligence official, now working as a lobbyist, named Rinat Akhmetshin.
Let that sink in for a moment.
What's especially curious is that GPS' Glenn Simpson admits he had dinner with Veselnitskaya both the night before and the night after the Trump Tower meeting.
Any possibility there was no discussion of the meeting between the two? Seems highly unlikely. Veselnitskaya herself subsequently claimed that the talking points for her meeting with the Trump people were provided to her by Simpson.
Once in the meeting, she quickly dropped the promises of having dirt on Hillary Clinton and instead brought up Russia's long-standing desire to get rid of the Magnitsky Act, under which the U.S. imposed sanctions on a number of Russian moguls and government officials.
In short, they were baiting a trap for the Trump campaign to make it appear as if they were colluding with Russian officials."
Needless to say, Smith's writing appears in obscure places and is completely ignored by the (((media))).

Plaque

Tweet (George Galloway):
"You do know - British journalists - don’t you, that personally unveiled a plaque at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem to commemorate the who murdered scores of BRITISH people in that hotel? Don’t you ? "
"UN Sanction Monitor: U.S. Watches As ISIS In Syria Recuperates, Pumps And Sells More Oil" (Moon).  Oh, Le Head-Lopper, you are my second greatest ally.  I think Trump still believes he's fighting ISIS.

"Saudi-US Propaganda by PBS NewsHour in Houthi-held Yemen" (Boardman).  Lots of use of the passive voice ('people were killed'), and, of course, constant mention of Iran.

"Trump Scores an Own-Goal in the Game Against Iran" (Bhadrakumar).  As usual, Americans putting their own national interests behind those of a country that controls its politicians, a problem that continues as it is literally unmentionable.

There were two highly publicized alt-right rallies over the weekend, which the alt-right recognized as traps to put them in confrontation with much larger groups of violent antifa.  So they didn't show up.  Antifa, enraged, started being violent anyway, which required quite a bit of (((media))) manipulation to cover up, and the whole thing has been a bit of a PR problem for the (((#Resistance))) (even the commie bros were upset that the police actually did their jobs this year, and protected the smaller group from violence by the Police 101 tactic of keeping the groups separate, something they intentionally mangled at last year's rally, and note how the commies misleadingly suggest that the poor turnout was a failure rather than tactics).  Kessler, who organized last year's Charlottesville rally, brought a black guy master of ceremonies to this year's version, and Kessler even gave a nice speech about how racism is bad!

"Is This The Most Important Geopolitical Deal Of 2018?" (Okumus).  Huge, as it brings countries important for hydrocarbons and geography, countries that tended to waver between West and East, firmly into the non-American group.  Note how Trump is forcing Iran into alliances it has always resisted.

"Israel, This Is Not Who We Are" (Lauder).  Lauder is The Devil Himself, but this is a nice demonstration of the growing supremacist racism by the white Khazars against the darkies of the shtetls.  Supremacism inevitably breaks this way.

"Habakkuk on Russia Delusion Syndrome (RDS)".  On Putin, marred by strenuous not-noticing that (((people))) like Brooks are Khazar supremacists who have to cast their particular hatred using American imperialist ideology and terminology.

A pattern, supply the tools for abuses, and then virtue-signal about how appalled you are when the tools are used ("I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!"  "Your winnings, sir."):  "Is Canada’s Moral Posturing All Just Fluff? Saudi Arabia, Ukraine, Indonesia".

"Beyond The DNC Leak: Hacks and Treason" (Eliason).  A combination of hacks (by Ukrainian intelligence) and a leak (by Seth Rich), with the suggestion that the 'hack' may have been collusion between the Clinton campaign and Ukrainian intelligence, with some Chalupa or other effectively leaving the back door open, perhaps because it aided the Ukrainians in producing the anti-Trump material.  It would be funny if the Dossier, the Ukrainian-manufactured anti-Trump compromat marketed by Steele, was the key to everything.

We may never know

"Who Profits From Iran’s Oil Major Exodus?" (Katona).  Russia and China.  One of the peculiarities of the American ultra-sanctioning war is that many companies are already under full sanctions, and thus are effectively immune from further sanctions.

Related:  "Caspian Sea Convention Signed to Open New Prospects for Region" (Korzun) (big!) and "Could a pipeline of peace help unite Northeast Asia?" (Salmon) (helpful hint if you want it to succeed:  leave the Assholians out of it!) and "Where does Imran Khan’s government stand on China’s Belt and Road?" (Hussain) and "US Supplying Massive Amounts of LNG Gas to Europe is More Hot Air than Reality" (Silverman) (white elephant LNG ports are so imperial decline!).

"What Really Happens to Nicaragua, Venezuela and Ecuador" (Koenig).  The Assholian pattern.

"The Bombshell Kushner-Kissinger Lunch That Set Trump On "Collusion Course" With Russia" (Durden).  Lots of moving parts here.

"The Deal: Smelling a Rat, Arabs Sense a Coming Humiliation" (Crooke).  Is Trump sending coded messages to Christian Zionists that he is furthering the plan to lead to the Second Coming?

"How NATO-linked Think Tanks Control EU Refugee Policy" (Engdahl) (Soros, Hadley):
"The European Stability Initiative think-tank of Soros-tied Gerald Knaus is financed by an impressive list of donors. Their website lists them.
The list includes, in addition to Soros’ Open Society Foundations, the Soros-tied German Stiftung Mercator, and the Robert Bosch Stiftung. ESI funders also include European Commission. Then, curiously enough the funder list for The Merkel Plan includes an organization with the Orwellian name, The United States Institute of Peace.
Some research reveals that the United States Institute of Peace has anything but a peace-loving background. The United States Institute of Peace is chaired by Stephen Hadley, former US National Security Council adviser during the neo-conservative war-waging Bush-Cheney administration. Its Board of Directors includes Ashton B. Carter, current Obama Administration neo-conservative hawkish Secretary of Defense; Secretary of State John Kerry; Major General Frederick M. Padilla, President of the US National Defense University. These are some very seasoned architects of the US Pentagon Full Spectrum Dominance strategy for world military domination.
The “Merkel Plan” authors at the European Stability Initative, in addition to the largesse of George Soros’ foundations, list as “core” funder, the German Marshall Fund of the United States. As I describe in my book, The Think Tanks, the German Marshall Fund is anything but German. With its seat in Washington, as I noted in the book, “It’s an American think tank with its headquarters in Washington, D.C. In point of fact, its agenda is the deconstruction of postwar Germany and more broadly of the sovereign states of the EU to fit them better into the Wall Street globalization agenda.”
The German Marshall Fund of Washington has been involved in the post-1990 USA agenda of regime change around the world in league with the US-funded National Endowment for Democracy, Soros Foundations, and the CIA front called USAID. As I describe it in the think tanks book, “The major focus of the German Marshall Fund according to its 2013 Annual Report was to support the US State Department agenda for so-called democracy-building operations in former communist countries in eastern and south-eastern Europe, from the Balkans to the Black Sea. Significantly their work included Ukraine. In most instances, they worked together with the USAID, widely identified as a CIA front with ties to the State Department, and the Stewart Mott Foundation which gives funds to the US Government-funded National Endowment for Democracy.”
Notably, the same Stewart Mott Foundation is also a funder of the ESI-authored Merkel Plan, as is the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
This all should give pause for reflection as to who and for what goals the Merkel-Erdogan deal for dealing with the EU refugee crisis is intended. Does the Rockefeller-Bush-Clinton faction in the United States intend to use it as a major social engineering experiment to create chaos and social conflict across the EU at the same time their NGOs such as the NED, Freedom House and the Soros Foundations are stirring things up in Syria and Libya and across the Islamic world? Is Germany, as former US presidential adviser and Rockefeller crony, Zbigniew Brzezinski called her, a “vassal” of US power in the post-1990 world? To date the evidence is pretty strong that that’s the case.

"Canada's feigned concern for "human rights" in Saudi Arabia comes at a time when the Canadian government continues approving of hundreds of millions of dollars worth of arms sales to Riyadh. This includes small arms and armored personnel carriers Saudi forces are using in their ongoing invasion and occupation of neighboring Yemen.

The feigned divide between Ottawa and Washington over Saudi human rights violations is overshadowed by years of commitment by both North American nations in propping up the Saudi regime, and aiding and abetting the very worst of Riyadh's human rights abuses unfolding amid the Yemeni conflict.

Canada's apparent role is to help compartmentalize the worst of the West's decaying moral authority, containing it with the US, and taking up a more prominent role in the West's industrialized "human rights" and "democracy" leveraging racket.

While Canadian armaments help fuel genocide in Yemen - Canadian diplomats around the world fund agitators and directly meddle in the internal political affairs of foreign nations predicated on promoting "human rights" and "democracy."

In Thailand for example, the US has receded into the shadows, allowing Canada, the UK, and other European nations to openly engage in political meddling on their behalf. US funding and support continues, but the public face of Western "outrage" is increasingly becoming Canadian, British, and Northern European.

However, Canada faces the same problem that has permanently eroded American credibility. And as its role in perpetuating real human rights abuses worldwide continues to be exposed, its feigned concern over token or even manufactured human rights concerns will increasingly appear hypocritical and hollow, undermining the West's collective ability to leverage and hide behind human rights and democracy to advance their self-serving agendas."

Had the guts for anything

Reading between the lines it appears that Putin is assisting Trump in preparing the groundwork for US withdrawal from Afghanistan once the Taliban is legitimized through this kind of diplomatic contact:  "Taliban cross the Rubicon" (Bhadrakumar).  Removing American troops from Afghanistan - and thus removing pressures on Pakistan, pressures which are particularly vital now for the usual Khazar supremacist reasons - is one of the reasons why Putin is the Devil for neocons and 'donor'-model Clintonistas.

"Lapis Lazuli Corridor Leads Afghanistan Towards Eurasian Integration" (Bokarev).  Geography means that Afghanistan actually has excellent prospects once it is de-assholed.

Meanwhile:  "The Afghan Quagmire Gets Deeper, Denser and Bloodier" (Cloughley).  It's incredible how well the (((media))) has shoahed awareness of this war.  Related:  "‘What We Have to Do’: Senate Passes Whopping $717 Billion 2019 Pentagon Budget".

"How Justin Trudeau Should Respond to Saudi Arabia" (Engler).  Good list, but he's missing the obvious cancellation - are there union pressures on Engler? - of the vile light armored vehicles contract.  Not that there is the slightest chance that Trudeau or his Nazi foreign minister will do the right thing in any way.

"Newly released official documents show CIA head Gina Haspel directly supervised waterboarding at “Black Site” in Thailand.  Sen. Intelligence Committee Chair Richard Burr and Vice Chair Mark Warner hid that, demonstrating once again that today’s Senate “oversight” means “overlook.” Hold your nose and read:" (McGovern).  Mark Warner again, undeniably a traitor.

"Jordan: The Middle East’s Silent Enemy" (Ferris).  The enabler.

"UK: Boris Johnson makes anti-Muslim pitch for Tory Party leadership" (Hyland).  It's funny how blatant it is, he literally intends to dog-whistle his way to being Prime Minister!  Of course, there is usually a modicum of subtlety to a dog whistle - it is after all a signal that only a dog or a racist can hear - but Boris doesn't even give Teh Stupids of Britain the credit of being intelligent enough to be able to figure out any signals beyond outright in-your-face racism.

"The Other Hiroshimas: A Review of ‘Napalm: An American Biography’, by Robert M. Neer" (Barsocchini).  The unique assholianism of the Assholians.  You have to go back to the Belgian Congo (or maybe WWII Japan) to find any kind of comparable intensity of atrocity record, but nobody in modern history comes even slightly close to the atrocity record - both in sheer volume and intensity of Evil - than Americans.

"Russia is stabilizing the Golan front line." (Lang).  Russia has become the real 'indispensible country' that the assholians claim to be.

"Dianne Feinstein Was An "Easy Mark" For China's Spy: Sperry" (Durden).  It is instructive to compare the (non) reaction to this real high-level spying attack (for two decades, with her husband profiting handsomely from the relationship!!!), to the hysteria over made up charges against Russia.

"On Iran, the Neocons Are No Ronald Reagan" (Slavin).  This is from the Atlantic Council (working directly for NATO generals for whom any kind of real war is a big career move), and is thus subtly, but importantly, deceptive, in that the neocons don't actually intend to pressure Iran into regime change, they intend to trick Americans into fighting another outright War For The Jews, up to and including boots on the ground.  This kind of long-term psychological preparation is pure Khazar.

"Turkey’s perfect storm" (Erdemir).  "How Turkey's Currency Crisis Came To Pass" (Moon).  Whenever I see an attack based on currency speculation I have to ask the obvious question, 'what's George Soros up to these days?'  Here's Turkey, teetering on the brink between the US orbit and the Russia-China-Iran axis, so what do the Americans do?  Push it away, as usual, based on Khazar manipulation (in this case, the Zionist motivation is Turkey's refusal to play ball on Iran sanctions).

Freedom of screech

"JTA: "Progressives Have a New Definition of Racism: ‘Prejudice Plus Power’. What Does That Mean for Jews?"" (Sailer).  (((Progressives))) out on a limb, sawing away.

"Bannon on the Age of Milken" (Sailer).  The big quote from Bannon:
"Go back and look at the postwar period. These companies had profit margins, and they traded on Wall Street, but there wasn’t this maniacal focus on the financialization. Companies forgot about the social fabric, forgot about your workers. Everything became commoditized. That led to the financial crisis of 2008. It all came home to roost. …
There’s a direct correlation between the factories that left, the billets and jobs that left with them, and the opioid crisis. This is what the Democrats miss: Tariffs are more than economics, it’s about dignity and self-worth.
… Here’s the concept of right-wing populism. If the ’80s and the way we got in this debacle was this radical idea of maximization of shareholder value, here’s what right-wing populism stands for. It’s very simple concept. We’re going to maximize the value of citizenship. We’re going to maximize citizenship value. If you’re an American citizen, you get a special deal. I don’t care if you’re Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, black, white, red, pink, green. I do not care. If you’re an American citizen, you get a better deal.
Here’s how many H-1B visas I want: none. Until we get Baltimore, Detroit, and St. Louis with, you know, youth unemployment down to zero, and people making high value-added jobs, I don’t need any foreigners. And I’m not a racist. What I want is our citizens to get the jobs. Right now illegal immigration is used as nothing more than a scam to suppress workers’ wages.
All the economic textbooks you’ve got before 2008? Throw them out. They’re totally irrelevant.
Your generation, the readers of New York Magazine, you’re nothing but 18th-century Russian serfs. You’re better fed, and you’re better dressed, and you’re better educated. But you don’t own anything. And you’re not going to own anything.
The state capitalism of the big technology companies has taken away your digital, your data sovereignty. They’ve totally taken it away. You generate intellectual property all day long, and they don’t pay you for it. They take it for free, they monetize at huge margins.
Q. But what right-wing populism does is break that. You agree with that?
Bannon: There are parts of it that are not exclusive to right-wing populism —
But on the left, your problem is that identity politics is stronger than your populism, and that’s why you can’t lift out of it. You can’t be a populist and buy into the globalist system — and the globalist system is open borders. It’s the Kochs. It’s Wall Street. The Kochs are the biggest open-borders guys in the world. The libertarian Cato Institute, look how radical they are. Cato hates my guts much more than the left.
In 2013, I sit there with Jeff Sessions at the Breitbart Embassy, and we’re looking at the 2012 election. A lawyer named Sean Trende did a three-part analysis of the working class on RealClearPolitics. About how the working class did not come out to vote for Romney. And I told Sessions, I said, “That’s the path to victory right there."

Mosque funding

"Is Saudi Arabia Doing America’s Bidding by Sanctioning Canada?" (Korybko).  Er, no.  Though I have to say the utter lack of any assistance from 'allies' that Canada has always rushed willingly to help should provide some hints for future Canadian diplomatic conduct.

Here's a theory of the real reason why MbS threatened to unleash his al-Qaeda army on Canada.  Something happened in July, and the Canadian government just leaked it out:  "Ottawa mosque loses charity status for promoting ‘hate and intolerance’":
"The federal government has stripped one of Ottawa’s largest mosques of its charity status over “activities that promote hate and intolerance,” Global News has learned.
The Canada Revenue Agency took action against the Ottawa Islamic Centre and Assalam Mosque following audits that raised concerns about its roster of guest speakers.
“Many of the views expressed by the organization’s speakers are misogynistic, homophobic, racist and/or promote violence,” the CRA Charities Branch wrote in a letter sent to the mosque president.
The CRA was also concerned that “radicalized individuals” had attended the mosque, one of whom, Ashton Larmond, is now imprisoned for attempting to join the so-called Islamic State."
and:
"The revocation took effect on July 14.
It means the mosque no longer benefits from the tax advantages enjoyed by government-registered charities. Foremost, it cannot issue receipts allowing donors to claim their contributions as income tax deductions.
“It was devastating for us. It was like an earthquake. But what can we do?” said Ali Abdulle, the mosque treasurer, who called the CRA action “politically-motivated.”
The mosque can still operate as a non-profit organization, but the decision could serve as a warning to other charities that they cannot give a platform to those who have espoused bigotry."
and (my emphasis in red):
"The mosque first applied for charity status in 2003 but was rejected, the records show. Among the concerns raised by the CRA at the time was its “sponsored speakers.” But it reapplied and became a registered charity in 2009.
Charity records show that in 2016, the last year it filed a tax return, the mosque received $164,000 from “sources outside Canada” that were not specified. It also reported almost $77,000 in foreign revenues in 2011."
The Saudi princelings enjoy funding mosques in foreign countries to promote their creepy Wahhabist doctrines and Islamist terrorism against the West. I suspect the real reason that MbS blew up is that Canadian efforts to stop terrorist funding infuriated him, and Freeland's hypocritical virtue-signaling tweet was the last straw.

Farmer terrorism

"‘Farmer terrorism’ is the new Jewish settler slogan justifying the destruction of crops".  Palestinians farming on their own traditional lands is now called 'terrorism'.

I don't like Cole - he's an ultra supremacist Jew who somehow manages to get published by 'anti-Semites' - at all, but here he deals with the interesting question - one of the key questions of our time - of why, say, Bill Kristol, doesn't look like Le Merchant:  "Flinging Poo at a Jew" (the epitome of political incorrectness is highlighted in red):
"This Jewish delusion of being among the “99 percent” is what compels Jews in the West to promote suicidal policies. Some of us really believe that once the “white Christian power structure” is toppled, we’ll lead what replaces it. Which is nonsense. In truth, we’ll be the first ones tossed into the sea. Just ask the Jews of France how welcome they feel now that “people of color” own the streets. This is a Jewish community that largely survived the Nazis, but it’s not surviving the immigrant invasion.
Speaking of Nazis, here’s an irony for the ages: It was Hitler who made the Jews white. Prior to the Holocaust, if you said the word “Jew” to a gentile, the first image that might come to mind would probably not have been a wealthy banker or media mogul, but rather a swarthy shtetl-dweller, a peddler, a rag salesman, Yiddle with a fucking fiddle. There’s a reason 1930s audiences loved Geezil from the Popeye cartoons. He was the stereotype.
But then along came Hitler, who damn near wiped out lower-class Eastern European Jewry. By the 1970s, the caricature of the poor “ethnic” Jew made no sense anymore. If you wanted to stereotype a Jew, you made him an upper-class intellectual nebbish with mother issues, not a lice-infested street vendor. But way too many Jews still see ourselves as the dispossessed, and that illusion informs our politics. We don’t want to face the reality that we’re actually the elite now—so we tell ourselves ghost stories about how Trump wants to put us in camps. That way, we can reassure ourselves that “Okay, maybe we’re a little well-off, but the white Christian powers-that-be want us dead, so we better throw in with our comrades-of-color.”
Take a hack like The New York Times Magazine’s Emily Bazelon. She recently attacked her “fellow whites” for their innumerable flaws. And when a few evil right wingers pointed out that she’s Jewish, she doubled down, stating that she “benefits” from her “whiteness” and therefore whites are “stuck” with her. Yet it took me exactly five seconds to Google-search “Bazelon” and “as a Jew” to reveal column after column in which she refers to Judaism as her “identity” and declares herself a “Jewish liberal.” I knew I’d get those results, because I know Bazelon’s type. She’ll identify as white to attack whites, but—like most Jews—she doesn’t want to lose her “special” identity, her “mark of the oppressed.”"
Kristol and his ilk don't look like Le Merchant because his ancestors managed to get out, by stepping on the corpses of people who look like Le Merchant.  It's obvious that the people who died in Europe in the 30s and 40s died because they couldn't escape, but the kicker is that your ability to escape was a question of class (and the Khazars who run American foreign policy are from the class that got out, with the complication that some of the worst neocons obviously have some non-Khazar blood, some have been 'whitened' with the most important of Khazar intellectual/scientific developments, plastic surgery, and some of the worst Zionists like Saban aren't Khazars at all, so it's complex).  You can't get any more politically incorrect than that!  My question:  Why was there an obvious ethnic bifurcation in Eastern European Jewry?  I'm guessing it is the usual problem of racial purity - the elite Jews - think Rothschilds - didn't interbreed with the ethnic Eastern Europeans, thus remaining pure Khazar.  The same ethnic animus now seems to infect 'white' Jewish attitudes towards the ultra orthodox and the settler movement.  These aren't just policy disagreements - the 'white' Jews actually despise the other Jews, with ironic consequences in weakening Zionism.  As with all supremacisms, the weakness is that the supremacists start to divide themselves on the basis of purity to the ethnic ideal, in this case, how 'white' - purebred Khazar - you are.  This is the single most taboo discussion you can have.

"Jeffrey Goldberg Doesn’t Speak for the Jews" (Klion).  No?  Could have fooled me.  To be read right after reading Cole.

Amazingly on point, Khazar supremacist front Human Rights Watch is going to bat for the mass-murdering Khazar Sackler family by claiming that 'pain management' is a 'human right'!!! You can't make this stuff up!  "Battle Over Opioids: Surprising Push-Back, and Not From Dealers" (Wexler).  Note that you have to be 'woke' to see through this story.

"A Four Person NATO-Funded Team Advises Facebook On Flagging "Propaganda"" (Durden).  The Atlantic Council, due to its obvious lack of any semblance of intellectual rigor, even by the standards of stinktanks, seems like a joke, but here is another example that there is good money and some power to be had in parroting the attitudes of the borg, while providing a parody/semblance of intellectual objectivity and expertise (e.g., Bellingcat).

"Is Democratic Senator Mark Warner The Mastermind Behind Weaponizing US Tech Giants?" (Krieger).

Quite a bit of glee over the tenth anniversary of the failed - and, in retrospect, silly - Georgian war on Russia:
  1. "WSJ: "When Russia Invaded Georgia"" (Sailer);
  2. Sailer's account of what actually happened; 
  3. "Marking 10 Years After Georgia Started War with Russia" (Gorka);
  4. "Repost: Saakashvili Wants War? He Will Get It." (Moon); and
  5. tying Saakashvili's appearance in American 'journalism' to the current world of the American borg: "Was the modern concept of ‘fake news’ born in Georgia a decade ago?" (MacDonald).
Saakashvili can still write PR for the Americans, but he is a man without a country, detested everywhere, with comic repercussions.

"Canadian sniper rifles expected to be in the hands of Ukrainian military by fall, MP says" (Pugliese) (every word is funny, but the last sentence is hilarious):
"While foreign affairs minister Chrystia Freeland has yet to sign off on the export permit for the rifles, Bezan said he anticipates she will do so as she is a strong supporter of Ukraine.
“If everything goes according to plan I would expect Freeland to sign off sometime this month,” he said. “I think the goal is to have (rifles) in their hands by the time of any fall-winter offensive in Donbass.”
Global Affairs Canada official John Babcock would not say whether Canadian taxpayers are financing the sale, and would not provide any other details about the arms deal. “The government has an obligation to protect confidential commercial information,” he stated in an email. “Further details related to export transactions (for example, names of exporting companies, financial values of individual contracts and transactions, and details of the specific technologies being exported) are protected due to the commercially confidential nature of such information.”
In December, the House of Commons defence committee recommended the Canadian government provide lethal weapons to Ukraine provided it demonstrates it is actively working to eliminate corruption at all levels of government."
"NATO fighter jet ‘accidentally’ fires live missile near Russian border":  "The missile fired by the jet should have self-destructed but apparently failed to do so."

"Venezuela’s soft coup advisor confesses where the opposition failed" (Verdad).  Gene Sharp, the NED, CANVAS, Yugoslavia, and Venezuela.  I would read this, and its comments.  See also:  "Venezuela Parliament Strips Immunity from Lawmakers Over Drone Attack" (one of the alleged coup plotters fled to Colombia!).

"Why Saudi Oil Production Suddenly Dropped" (Paraskova).  Possibly an attempt to jerk up oil prices exploiting uncertainties over the Iran sanctions, but tough to do in a world flooded with oil, or possibly a reflection of a fact tied to the failure of the ARAMCO IPO, the fact that Saudi reserves aren't anywhere near what they are claimed to be.

Shocking news!:  "Israel running campaign against Jeremy Corbyn" (Winstanley).  The extremely hands-on involvement of the Israeli government in what are supposed to be local issues was one of the big revelations of the first half of the Al Jazeera report (the second half, of course, on similar skulduggery in the US, has been shoahed as part of a deal to keep Qatar from being invaded!).

STFU

I think it is a sin to pass up a perfectly good headline staring you in the face:  "Death by 10,000 Cuts: The Zionist campaign to silence Palestine at SFSU" (Abdulhadi) should have been "STFU @ SFSU".  Unrelenting attacks on society, including lawfare, is why Le Merchant constantly finds himself in trouble, wherever and whenever he is.

Speaking of @, '@jack' has clearly mastered the art of pissing on your leg and telling you it is raining:  "Twitter CEO Says "We Haven't Banned Alex Jones As He Hasn't Violated Our Rules"" (Durden).  Of course, you may not be able to see what he writes . . .

"Christopher Steele, FBI's Confidential Human Source by Publius Tacitus".  An excellent fine reading on the recent revelations on Steele obtained by Judicial Watch which, naturally, didn't make the (((media))) (my emphasis in red):
". . . the FBI decision to get into bed with Christopher Steele pre-dated what the American people had been previously told about the FBI's relations with this foreign spy.
But there is a major unanswered question surrounding the decision to recruit and rely on Steele as a Confidential Informant--the U.S. and the United Kingdom have a standing agreement to not recruit each other's intelligence personnel for clandestine activities. Why was this exception made?
Christopher Steele was terminated as a Confidential Human Source for cause. We know this because that part is not redacted in the FBI documents:
CHS confirmed to an outside third party that CHS has a confidential relationship with the FBI. CHS was used as a source for an online article. In the article, CHS revealed CHS’ relationship with the FBI as well as information that CHS obtained and provided to FBI. On November 1, 2016, CHS confirmed all of this to the handling agent. At that time, handling agent advised CHS that the nature of the relationship between the FBI and CHS would change completely and that it was unlikely that the FBI would continue a relationship with the CHS. Additionally, handling agent advised that CHS was not to operate to obtain any intelligence whatsoever on behalf of the FBI.
Pay attention to the last item--Steele was told NOT to operate to get any info on behalf of the FBI. So what did he do? After Trump's election Steele provided one more report, which was passed directly to Senator John McCain who in turn passed it to James Comey. What did Comey swear to in the FISA renewal application in January 2017? Did he tell the judge that he was using information from a CHS that had been fired? I doubt it.
What was the precipitating incident or issue that led the FBI to recruit and sign up Steele as a Confidential Human Source? I am told by friends with knowledge of the matter that the impetus came because British Intelligence was passing information to the U.S. Intelligence Community. Did DNI Jim Clapper or CIA Director John Brennan contact the FBI and ask the FBI to bring Christopher Steele on board as an informant?  The Guardian reported that this is exactly what happened (but they got the timing wrong):
. . .  both US and UK intelligence sources acknowledge that GCHQ played an early, prominent role in kickstarting the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation, which began in late July 2016.
One source called the British eavesdropping agency the “principal whistleblower”.
According to the Guarding, GCHQ Chief Robert Hannigan spoke directly to John Brennan, who:
used GCHQ information and intelligence from other partners to launch a major inter-agency investigation. In late August and September Brennan gave a series of classified briefings to the Gang of Eight, the top-ranking Democratic and Republican leaders in the House and Senate.
This latest document dump makes it very clear that the FBI activity with respect to going after Trump on all matters Russia predates July 2016. More information needs to come out."

We're heading back to seeing the entire attack on Trump spearheaded by British intelligence, and well before it is supposed to have started.
