Gee, I wonder who the informant could be?

Russia’s top diplomat has claimed his country has insider knowledge on the military plans of the U.S. and its Western allies.

Russia Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov made the remarks while addressing the Terra Scientia on Klyazma River National Educational Youth Forum, which was set to run from June 26 to August 12. When asked about how Russia has managed to stay up-to-date on modern security challenges, Lavrov said Moscow would be well-informed in the event of any international attempts to undermine the country.

“Rest assured, we will be provided with information about the schemes harbored by the militaries of both the U.S. and other Western countries against the Russian Federation,” Lavrov said, adding that Russia’s global military presence was necessary to defend the country’s interests, according to the state-run Tass Russian News Agency.

“No matter what is happening in the world, our security as a state, the security of our citizens and our sovereignty will be duly protected. [Russian] President [Vladimir] Putin repeatedly stated it, and I assure you that it is based on real material changes that are taking place in our country and our army,” he added.

If this Lavrov guy seems vaguely familiar to you and you are wondering where you might have seen him before, here let me give you a hint. 

Yes, that is Lavrov meeting with the Kremlin’s number one asset.

Still wondering from where he gets his inside information?

    Trump Is About To Bypass Congress And Give A Massive $100 Billion Tax Cut To The Rich

    According to a New York Times report published Monday, Trump is considering a plan to that would slash $100 billion in taxes for the wealthiest income earners – without even going through Congress.

    According to the Times, “The Trump administration is considering bypassing Congress to grant a $100 billion tax cut mainly to the wealthy, a legally tenuous maneuver that would cut capital gains taxation and fulfill a long-held ambition of many investors and conservatives.”

    Trump Administration Mulls a Unilateral Tax Cut for the Rich

    The Trump administration is considering bypassing Congress to grant a $100 billion tax cut mainly to the wealthy, a legally tenuous maneuver that would cut capital gains taxation and fulfill a long-held ambition of many investors and conservatives.

    …“Treasury does not have the unilateral authority to take our tax code and expose it to widespread gamesmanship,” said Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon, the top Democrat on the Finance Committee. “Indexing capital gains under this regime is a boondoggle for the rich, plain and simple.”

    Secretary of Defense Mattis is no dummy. He is also aware that the oath he took is too his country, not the president. Given these facts, I wonder if Mattis (and the Joint Chiefs of Staff) provides Donnie Dotard and his staff with the correct information. Surely Mattis must realize that Dotard is compromised by the Russians, and cannot be trusted.

    OFF-TOPIC: After a long absence, I checked out Bristol’s Instagram page. There is a lot of comment here about her cosmetic surgery, her chin, etc. I think she had a smile surgically placed on her face. I mean, check her out — that smile is frozen — the same smile in every pic.

    “The Washington Post reported on Monday that North Korea appeared to be building one or two new liquid-fueled intercontinental ballistic missiles at the large research facility on the outskirts of Pyongyang, citing unidentified officials familiar with intelligence reporting.” The Sanumdong factory produced two Hwasong-15 ICBMs, North Korea’s longest-range missiles, but the U.S. official noted that Pyongyang still had not tested a reliable re-entry vehicle capable of surviving a high-velocity trip through the Earth’s atmosphere and delivering a nuclear warhead.

    It is possible, the official said, that any new missiles the North is building may be for further testing of such vehicles and of more accurate guidance systems.

    “They seem to have figured out the engines, but not all the higher-tech stuff, and that might be what this is about,”

    I thought it was interesting that Sergey was recalled to russia, guess they wanted to get him out of the USA fast after his job with trump was done.

    Of course little donnie is blabbing everything to russia, they complement him and he tells them everything.

    Also I read an article that the former Casino executive use to sweep his office for bugs on a regular basis because little donnie is known to tape conversations. So why don’t we have a record of him and putin at the summit or all the phone calls?

    “highly confidential White House records and testimony by some of President Trump’s own top aides” — offers “some of the strongest evidence to date implicating the president of the United States in an obstruction of justice.”
    “Several people who have reviewed a portion of this evidence say that, based on what they know, they believe it is now all but inevitable that the special counsel will complete a confidential report presenting evidence that President Trump violated the law.

    1787>”The delegates to the Constitutional Convention initially agreed that Congress should make the choice, but then grew concerned that foreign powers would bribe congressmen to favor their preferred candidates.” “the selection of the president must avoid
    “two great evils”: “cabal at home and influence from abroad.” “Congress choosing the president, insisting that “it opened a door for foreign influence.”

    “They finally agreed on a complicated elector system so flawed that it required the Twelfth Amendment to allow it to function at all (even badly, as it now does).
    That system’s principal virtue, Alexander Hamilton argued in Federalist No. 68, was that it shielded the presidential choice from
    “the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils,” by “raising a creature of their own to the chief magistracy of the Union.” The Framers shielded the presidential selection process against the risks familiar to them:
    principally, in Hamilton’s phrase, bribery of those who might “prostitute their votes.” “Anything that impairs the integrity of elections, that allows a foreign power to raise a creature of its own to the presidency, defeats our sovereignty as a nation.

    The Framers understood that.”

    “The stakes could not be higher. ”
    “While the case seems locked-in, there is one word that must be keeping prosecutors awake at night: nullification. Nullification happens when a jury, or juror, disregards the trial evidence and the law and instead renders a decision based on personal opinions, political or religious beliefs, sympathy, or any other extraneous factor. Jury nullification is very rare, and it is not technically proper—the judge will instruct the jury dozens of times that it is to decide the case solely on the trial evidence and the law—but it also is unavoidable. Jurors are human beings, and human beings sometimes decide based on emotion.”

    Ru$$ia IS “shadowboxing” in plain sight, also working on a global power grab with its energy gambit.” ““The Russians are playing the smarter, long game,” “The Trump administration is aware of all this — but so far, its best attempt in countering Russia has been to demand that Europe purchase the more expensive U.S. liquefied natural gas in exchange for lifting the tariff on European cars.

    “Russia’s energy tactics are a global strategy that seeks to influence current and future energy markets,” said Theodore Karasik, project investigator for the Russia in the Middle East Project at the Jamestown Foundation.”
    “The energy tactic is more potent than Russian ARM$ $ALES because it has “a sharper effect on the ground and on economies,” said Karasik. “The energy gambit I$ THE LONG GAME.” “An energy market can destabilize an economy, and it can destabilize a government ”
    “Russia is striking energy deals in Latin American countries (taking over Venezuela’s gas field, selling oil to Cuba, and assisting with a nuclear plant in Bolivia) to exert influence where that of the United States has waned.”
    “OPEC [consortium of oil producing countries] — with some even using the acronym ROPEC to describe this new reality,” said Karasik.

    Striking deals with countries such as Saudi Arabia allows Russia to influence supply and demand, keeping prices within a certain range, much to the dismay of President Trump, who recently demanded via Twitter that OPEC countries increase their oil production in order to lower prices at the pumps in the United States.” So far, no dice. ”

    “don’t really see a lot of energy policy except ‘Drill more. Pump,’”

    (Well, that, and “beautiful clean coal,” as the president likes to call it.)

    “I don’t think we have clear energy policies in this administration — just a lot of rhetoric,”

    “Aside from strengthening energy ties with Saudi, Russia has also positioned itself in Iran, Turkey, and Syria — and the war-torn country is proving to be an interesting investment for the federation.” {Lebanon!}

    ““Plus, the oil still belongs to Tripoli. So the Russians are smart and they play all sides of the Libyan war. … More importantly, though, is what lies in Libya’s south, which is untapped gas deposits … they want to be able to get into those,” said Karasik.”
    “What’s crucial to remember, said Stronski, is that focusing on Putin’s motivations isn’t really the answer.

    “Putin is looking out for his own,” HE FEARS MOST THIS>

    ““Our new film connects the dots about where Putin’s deep-seated resentment of the U.S. came from, and how he set out to revive the old Cold War, with new weapons,” ““What Putin was trying to do was to show that everyone’s lying, everyone’s cheating. There is no objective truth. And there is no difference between what you hear from Western media, and what you hear in, say, Russia’s media,” former Deputy National Security Advisor Antony Blinken tells FRONTLINE. “That was the line—and he became increasingly successful in blurring it for people, including in the United States and the West.”

    Against the backdrop of investigations by the FBI and Congress into the role Russia played in the election, Putin’s Revenge is the must-watch, inside story of how we reached this point, what drives Putin, and what might happen next.” OCTOBER 18, 2017
