Blocked by Google on orders from Attorney General Barr: “NEO, The End of the Trump Presidency is Here”

Exactly as with Watergate, it is a simple thing. Trump, aided by Rudy Giuliani, his personal lawyer and US Attorney General Robert Barr, a former CIA “fixer,” have, according to some news sources including the Wall Street Journal and Washington Post, been caught bribing and blackmailing a foreign leader in something miles beyond RussiaGate.

Google issued a block on this article (which will fail miserably) upon a NSL issued by US Attorney General Barr, mentioned in this article as a potential co-conspirator in high crimes and misdemeanors

From the Daily Beast:

“President Trump asked Ukraine’s president to investigate Hunter Biden, son of 2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden, eight separate times during one phone call this summer, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

According to the Journal’s sources, Trump told President Volodymyr Zelensky in that July phone call to work with the president’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani on probing the former vice president over allegations he shielded from investigation a Ukrainian gas company with ties to his son.

“Mr. Trump didn’t mention a provision of foreign aid to Ukraine on the call, said this person, who didn’t believe Mr. Trump offered the Ukrainian president any quid-pro-quo for his cooperation on an investigation,” the Journal added.

Trump’s interactions with the Ukrainian president have come under scrutiny following news of a whistleblower’s complaint about the president’s communications with a foreign leader and a “promise” Trump allegedly made in those conversations.”

What puts the icing on the cake, as it were, is that directly tied to this, Trump held up a $260 million military aid package which was eventually released after the blackmail attempt came to light. Also,from the Daily Beast:

“A source with direct knowledge of the situation says that in recent months he has informally advised Trump on how to approach Zelensky. That advice came around the time rumors started flying that the president was withholding aid to the Ukrainian government until he received assurances the Biden investigation would move forward. 

“He’s a question mark. There are a lot of good things, but there are these people he surrounds himself with,” Giuliani said of Zelensky in a conversation with The Daily Beast in late July. “He’s been there too short a period of time to know how he’s going to act. But I think there are very good signs and I have an open mind.”


On Thursday evening, when asked about the latest Ukraine revelation and if it was related to his well-publicized efforts, Giuliani simply said, “Don’t know and don’t care. Let them [the Democrats] knock themselves out.” Asked whether anybody had been in touch with him yet about the whistleblower complaint, the Trump attorney responded, “No, it’s total bull[shit].” He then claimed that “Biden did bribery, and you don’t cover it. I did my job as a good lawyer [for President Trump] and Corrupt Media gets excited.”

The Trump administration ultimately did sign off on a major military aid package, releasing it on Sept. 12. Zelensky spoke to Trump in late July. The readout of that call from the Ukrainian camp reportedly noted that Trump was focused on Ukraine’s ability to ‘complete investigations into corruption cases that have hampered Ukraine-US cooperation.’”

This is where it ties up neatly, 8 requests to investigate the son of a political rival and the blackmail, holding up funds based on blackmail which has been officially acknowledged by the Ukrainian government.

Then it gets deeper, particularly if you watch the press. We have two platforms, the Wall Street Journal and Washington Post reporting the story. Behind it all, where the story gained official standing as a criminal investigation against Trump is the law that protects federal “whistleblowers” who bring evidence of wrongdoing, in this case by President Trump.

That evidence is, we are told and it could be nothing else, an intelligence intercept of conversations either directly with Trump and Zelensky or, and these are not protected in any way, multiple confirming intercepts that cover not only Zelensky discussing the blackmail but others, which could well include Giuliani and Barr, discussing criminal aspects of the conspiracy.

Where it stands, the White House is blocking congress from evidence that has already been judged substantive in establishing the guilt of Trump and many of those around him in crimes well beyond Watergate.

The whistleblower materials have already been verified by intelligence officials at the White House and congress has been informed that they are considered valid and of vital interest to national security, that Donald Trump is considered by the National Security Council, a “threat against the United States.”

While we see some media outlets reporting some parts of the story, others are censoring it entirely and others still, like the “Trump hating” New York Times, simply accepting Trump’s denials and accusations as proof the charges are false.

You see, Trump has said the individual charging him is a known operative of the opposition party. Problem here, Trump has no idea who this individual is, he simply reached into his bag of tricks learned from mentor Roy Cohn, the infamous mob boss that Trump spent his early years “clubbing” with, always deny, always attack, this was the Roy Cohn way.

Cohn’s vindictive and combative ways aided Trump but Cohn himself succumbed to liver cancer as a complication of AIDS in 1986, leaving Trump to eventually find, years later, Rudy Giuliani as a legal guide, but never anyone to replace Cohn, his lifelong closest associate.

We are looking at this one incident because it represents one leak, one highly documented leak, that exposes the way Trump has done business since day one and that blackmail and bribery have been a part of White House day to day operations since Trump moved in and, according to our sources, years before.

Let us look at the situation in the Persian Gulf. The US has just sent military units to “protect” Saudi Arabia, the 4th largest military on earth, from Iran, a nation with a handful of aircraft.

The problem here, Trump and his family have hundreds of millions in overt and even more in covert private business deals with Saudi Arabia, including deals for hotels, night clubs and even “adult relaxation” facilities, a term we take to mean “brothels” which are invariably tied to human trafficking.

Let us remember that on two occasions, Trump attacked Syria based on reports he received from his daughter who read them on social media. On both occasions, Syrian air defenses handily defeated American attacks, a huge humiliation for the Pentagon.

The result of this, something not reported, is that the Pentagon is unwilling to accept orders from Trump, orders continually issued, then rescinded then reissued, the altered then forgotten.

Military leaders speak of nothing else, “Trump has advanced dementia.”

Then we have the recent revelations by former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. From Politico:

“Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Wednesday that Israeli officials “played” President Donald Trump in their conversations with him, warning that a “healthy amount of skepticism” is needed in dealings with Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.

The comments came during a panel discussion at Harvard University in which Tillerson, who was fired by the president last year, touched on a variety of themes from his tenure, including Iran, his hiring freeze at the State Department and the unpredictable nature of Israel’s longest-serving prime minister, Netanyahu.

‘They did that with the president on a couple of occasions, to persuade him that ‘We’re the good guys, they’re the bad guys,’’ Tillerson said, according to the Harvard Gazette. “We later exposed it to the president so he understood, ‘You’ve been played.’”

He cautioned that skepticism is necessary when dealing with Netanyahu, whom Tillerson called ‘a bit Machiavellian.’”

In fact, every action Trump has been involved in starting with breaking the nuclear treaty with Iran which has virtually destroyed NATO is based on Trump being “played” by Netanyahu.

Inside sources also say Netanyahu had a hand in Trump backing out of the INF treaty as well, putting the US on a war footing with Russia and in an arms race that has potentially disastrous consequences, particularly since Russia’s weapons tend to work better than America’s, a fact the Pentagon has not been able to keep from the public. From Tass:

“Missile defense systems all over the world sometimes fail to demonstrate the intended result, US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said, when asked by a reporter why Saudi troops, armed with US-made Patriot missile defense systems, failed to repel the recent drone attack on the kingdom’s oil facilities.

‘We’ve seen air defense systems all around the world have mixed success,’ the Department of State press service quoted Pompeo as saying upon his arrival to Jeddah. ‘Some of the finest in the world don’t always pick things up. We want to work to make sure that infrastructure and resources are put in place such that attacks like this would be less successful than this one appears to have been.’

The US top diplomat lashed out at rumors that the attack on Saudi Aramco oil facilities was a result of US withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran’s nuclear program.”

One must remember, Israel is protected by a lightly modified American system, far less costly and elaborate than the one that failed in Saudi Arabia. The same thing is true for Saudi Arabia and for much of Western Europe except nations like Turkey that use Russian systems.

Others are likely to follow as well. And we must remember, Iran has a Russian air defense system.

Conclusion

Washington faces an analog of Watergate with these exceptions, the media giants that took on Nixon and his gang no longer exist. Washington is a city of “small men,” not just Trump, Barr and Giuliani, but opposition as well.

Few alive today remember Senator Sam Ervin. The real question here isn’t so much the those we have thus stated, that the military no longer finds Trump credible and has taken on presidential power, the worst kept secret imaginable, that America as we know it ended some time ago.

There are so many others. I mention Senator Ervin but let us read his opening address from 1973 courtesy of Rolling Stone:

“A Black Cloud of Distrust, May 17th, 1973.

We are beginning these hearings today in an atmosphere of utmost gravity. The questions, that have been raised in the wake of the June 17th break-in, strike at the very undergirding of our democracy. If the many allegations made to this date are true, then the burglars who broke into the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee at the Watergate were in effect breaking into the home of every citizen of the United States.

If these allegations prove to be true, what they were seeking to steal was not the jewels, money or other property of American citizens, but something much more valuable—their most precious heritage, the right to vote in a free election. Since that day, a mood of incredulity has prevailed among our populace, and it is the constitutional duty of this committee to allay the fears being expressed by the citizenry, and to establish the factual bases upon which these fears have been founded.

The Founding Fathers, having participated in the struggle against arbitrary power, comprehended some eternal truths respecting men and government. They knew that those who are entrusted with power are susceptible to the disease of tyrants, which George Washington rightly described as “love of power and the proneness to abuse it.” For that reason, they realized that the power of public officers should be defined by laws which they, as well as the people, are obligated to obey.

The Constitution, later adopted amendments and, more specifically, statutory law provide that the electoral processes shall be conducted by the people, outside the confines of the formal branches of government, and through a political process that must operate under the strictures of law and ethical guidelines, but independent of the overwhelming power of the government itself. Only then can we be sure that each electoral process cannot be made to serve as the mere handmaiden of a particular Administration in power.”

Remember, this was 1973. The Vietnam war was nearly ended, America has stopped what had seemed an endless war, one brought to a close by combat veterans, not “activists” or “leftists.”

Nixon, as with Trump, both acolytes of Roy Cohn, was seen as a sinister individual, a pathological liar, malevolent and “unclean.”

His destruction was seen as a victory for justice at the hands of men who fought and won World War II, leaders that simply don’t exist anymore, leading an America that fewer and fewer Americans have faith in.

Trump didn’t cause this. Did it start with 9/11, or the Kennedy killings or the fake terror wars?

What is left is simple, Trump is now a placeholder, not a president, powerless, clownish, a buffoon and embarrassment. Opposing him, to a large extent, are those who will never be able to find what we used to call “the American spirit.”

It could have been that Trump might well have been the cure to the disease of engineered cynicism that infects America. Instead, the president who promised to “empty the swamp” became, as so easily predicted, the worst of its creatures.

  1. I have been reading VT for a while and know that these guys know a lot more bad stuff about the world than I do but sometimes I think they suffer from TDS. Gordon Duff does not believe there were any “shenanigans” with HRC and the emails, Fusion GPS and opposition research being used as a reason for obtaining FISA warrants? I need a list of GOP/Mossad/Organized crime news sources to find if I am also an addict. Not having read the NYT, WaPo, the Daily Beast, Al Jazeera lately I thought I was escaping the Zionist propaganda machine and reading something else. Oh well.

  2. Is it true there has never been a problem with the Clinton Trust? Has not an accountant, Charles Ortell, called it one of the biggest frauds in the history of the US? Re: Hunter Biden and Joe Biden – Hunter Biden reportedly made millions of dollars working at Burisma Energy, a Ukrainian company. Does he speak Ukrainian – at least? Does it matter? Well, maybe not. But wasn’t Burisma being investigated for losing billions of dollars of US aid money? We have all seen Joe Biden tell the story of how he threw his weight around – giving the Ukrainians 6 hours to fire the Burisma investigator or he personally would withhold aid money from the US. What’s up with that? Is it not worthy of investigation as corruption? Or is it not corruption when your son’s company is involved?

  3. I’m not slick, I’m a blunt northerner so I’ll just tell you straight – you’re talking shite and should know better, if you have read VT for a period of time. Now either wise up or fuck off. Aggressive enough for ya?

  4. Just to let know VT that I have typed the article name onto Google and it gave me both the VT and NEO website articles. So, it did not show the forbidden display as indicated. I am based in the UK, so I cannot comment on the readers located in North America.
    However, I have read an article, perhaps by F William Engdhal or some others analysts talking about Joe Biden’s being named in an Ukrainian shale oil/gas company after the coup. If I find the article, I shall re-comment, but in the meantime, the article from Consortium News will suffice:The Whys Behind the Ukraine Crisi

  5. Did “we win” WW II? Look at the world now. Fascism is more widespread than it was before it started. So excuse me if I am somewhat cynical.

    As far as I’m concerned Watergate was nothing but a morality play. Nixon was going to blow the cover on that “Cuban thing” and probably much more when cornered by what is called the Deep State. Funny that they’d replace him with Warren Commission alumni Gerald Ford.

    Read Secret Agenda and Silent Coup.

    True like Nixon, Trump is no paragon of virtue but as I wrote before. One has to ask what the real story is behind that published by the War Street Journal and the mark of the Best. Both Zionist controlled rags.

    • Did “we win” WW II? Look at the world now. Fascism is more widespread than it was before it started. So excuse me if I am somewhat cynical. My reply: It sounds much more than communism beat us all. For example look at the structure of that monster that is the EU.

Funny that they’d replace him with Warren Commission alumni Gerald Ford. My reply: very good analysis. Despite what one think of President Nixon and his policies, he was the one who ended the awful Viet-Nam war. He was the one to invite Governor Connelly at the White House to get a briefing of what he remembered on that fatal day of 22nd November 1963 and there are also many others things he was trying to do but was stopped short. He also initiated the rapprochement with China for good or perhaps bad. On that People comments that all the manufacturing jobs have been relocated to China from that time…..

  6. I try to understand the mind of a whistleblower operating inside this admin. In this exercise, I must conclude, that this is the least of it. Something that would be enough, but not such that many lives are endangered.
    Because this is life long SOP, there is zero chance Trump has not behaved in this manner consistently.
    The real irony, that this involves 2 leaders who were clowns and had no experience in government, exposes the game of pretend, as winnable, when the populace has reached exasperation.
    Whoever is directing this dramedy, is well pleased. It’s the case where the murder charges are dropped, and the prosecution focuses on the theft of a candy bar. Fat wallets cause blurred vision.

    • ” John André (2 May 1750 – 2 October 1780) was a British Army officer hanged as a spy by the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War for assisting Benedict Arnold’s attempted surrender of the fort at West Point, New York to the British.”

  7. i have been listening to gordon duff for years now and more or less if you listen to his words and the logic he employees , if you really can get your own bias out of the way and receive the message, if you can do that without judging him but discerning the words, your getting a highly accurate view of the world outside all the fractions, government players, and intelligents departments in my opinion.

    if your smart ? you must listen to most all views on a subject , the more ideas, opinions, perspective constitute council , a wise man seeks counsel. no one should make any moves financial or political without first doing your homework. VT does its homework and it shows! i take negative comments with a grain of salt, who is making the comment?

  8. There is a problem with your post. The “shenanigan” you talk about along with the bodies never happened. There has never been a problem with the Clinton trust, unlike the Trump trust and it is Trump tied to the RKM and pedophile rings, not the Clintons.

    You are obviously an addict to biased GOP/Mossad/Organized crime news sources…which are, in fact, all news sources. They control everything. There is no reason you would have see this article unless you were sent here when we dodged Google’s block.

  9. Evidently the Missile Defense system of the U.S. failed on 9/11/01 didn’t it? Or did the four star generals just turn it off? Our government is nothing but lying con artists and Americans are so stupid from the barrage of media lies they believe every one. Americans have been had just like Trump.

    • And didn’t that whore Biden get the Medal of Freedom as a gift from Obama for his silence? Trump has been giving it to phony sports figures. The Medal of Freedom has been rendered a national disgrace just like this country. Trump and his cronies and Congress should take a tour with now bankrupt Thomas Crook. Let’s hope all get stranded forever.
