Having written this late at night, and such things are reflected in anything gloomy, as this might be categorized, a short review during the day is advisable.

First of all, the assessment here is as good as anyone will find, as real as we can confirm with no ‘delves’ into fantasy or dot connecting.

We admit that we at VT were looking at putting together a parallel of Chris Steele’s operation.  We have better Russia sources than he does, much better, better Ukraine sources and Steele, decades younger than many of us, has no “real time” Cold War credentials.  VT folks held senior positions.

Frankly, we were looking for a bit of boat, motorcycle and airplane money for very little work, albeit much better than would otherwise be available.  The only real offer we had during the campaign came from the Trump people but that went away as well, it became clear that the Kosher Nostra has no need for experts when a cudgel will do.

What is here is mine but collective also.  Even the FBI ended by admitting that my/our capability in tradecraft and intel analysis was well beyond theirs and sought to bring us onboard.  I hate to think of what happened to the head of the field office who presented that to the Director, transfer to Greenland is usually the issue.

Let us take a look at one minor thing, one I am sure put Robert David Steel off Trump for good, the executive order to “protect” Jewish students through ending free speech on all American campuses….more than it had already been.

Meaning?  Hollow effort meant to humiliate the US, to shit in our tea as it were, nothing else.  Jewish students don’t want to be tied to “special treatment” by the Nazis, their grandparents saw how that worked out.  

Now Orange Man Donnie protects them the way he protected Epstein with one exception, the issue is BDS, the Israeli boycott, which is, of course, run entirely by Jewish students who are now under presidential ban from speaking freely about Israel’s actions.

“Thanks dad.”  Whenever I see Trump, something close to Jack Hearts’ own heart, I think of Dune and the “Floating fat man,” of the Harkonnans. 

By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

I have been reviewing the declassified documents, a nasty and tiresome project, from the inspector general and from the hearings on the FBI and Russiagate.

I first became involved in Russiagate, as it was wrongly called, in my opinion anyway, in 2015 when VT analysts (former US and Soviet psych war specialists, in this case a pair of Colonels) identified a “third force” involved in creating a fake narrative around Hillary Clinton.

VT insiders tied to Thomas Mattingly, a Washington attorney (and VT editor) later murdered…and now we know why, approached Hillary’s campaign informing them that what was made to appear to be election rigging by Russia, run through Google Corporation, Israeli intelligence, Turkish intelligence and the Kosher Nostra, was active.

We also pointed out that, based on collective experience the public is only aware of in an ancillary way, this is only one prong of a rigged election but something more.

Our effort, will Hillary’s folks, Podesta and gang, was to at least bring them up to speed and to put a team led by lawyers already working on Hillary’s campaign to start taking a real look.  We told them the hammer would fall.

Arrogance?  No one on Hillary’s campaign had a clue how to do opposition research, how to track internet/social media manipulation and attacks, there was absolutely no such capability, well into 2016 on the campaign at all.  They thought they had it won and didn’t care.

They didn’t hire Christopher Steele and Hillary had absolutely nothing to do with the dossier.  No democrat did.

In fact, these were some of the stupidest people I had ever spoken with and that’s saying a lot.

Later, when things went the wrong way, the crybaby dem’s through Politico, the Hill, the WaPo (we later made peace) and Newsweek (a despicable rag), ran to the FBI to rat out VT, and Jim and me.

This set the FBI’s Washington field office on me, the same team who went after Michael Flynn.  Robert Steele loves Flynn and I think he was right on some issues in Afghanistan but we also knew he had hooked up with a Turkish gangster for a huge payout and was totally “on the make.”

The agents who investigated both of us, the same team, were told to expect me to be like Flynn.  I was not.  None of us at VT are.

What became increasingly clear is that the FBI at the highest level, perhaps beginning with Comey and moving onward, was running Russiagate as a two-state operation, one to silence the press through threats, which obviously didn’t work with those of us who didn’t take Kosher Nostra cash (VT alone..nobody else) and to provide cover for those who really rigged the election.

A review of hearings has made a few things clear.  The FBI knew all along that Trump was dirty.  What they thought was that he was working for Russia.  As they explained it to me, their working hypothesis is that all money going into Trump is from “Russian” oligarchs who are directly run by Russian intelligence and all are directly answerable to Putin only.

This could be true.

A typical opposing position, as every “oligarch/gangster’ that Trump works with is Russian-Ukrainian but also an Israel citizen is that “the Jews did it.”  Except for this, American Jews broadly backed Hillary.

She got all the “normal” Jewish cash while 100% of the mob money went to GOP candidates across the board, as is always the case.  The GOP is totally mob controlled.

As for who Hillary is, we really don’t know.  She was a poor candidate and lacked foreign policy vision and the proper politics to clean up America, meaning eliminating college debt, medicare for all, the things we see from Sanders, Gabbard and Warren.

Biden and Bloomberg are the “placekeepers” of the old guard who would restore America’s world position but never address the problems that Trump only represents a portion of.

What I had a chance to do with the FBI was dissect their unintentional but fake investigation and, sharing information with Chip Tatum and others, see that everything in social media, the press, what is reported from congress, all of it is written like bad Shakespeare, fake narratives one upon the other.

Where the sad part comes in is this.  I have had the chance to talk with young people I like, DC investigators, who just aren’t trained for intelligence work and who don’t realize that the Cold War never ended but rather that Russia fell into the hands of gangsters whose focus and brilliance, whose brutality and attention to detail is beyond their capacity to understand.

They were trained to play checkers, we are being done in by a classic game of 3D chess.

Fueling it is the swamp.

As for Trump, he had been profiled by the Kosher Nostra long ago as a vehicle for money laundering, an inheritor of the Roy Cohn/Meyer Lansky/Bronfman criminal empire which was a bare shadow of what arose when the Soviet gulags opened their doors into Israel and the United States, gulags still emptying into the US through Kushner’s visa selling deals, bringing in people with endless cash from drugs and human trafficking and a brilliance and focus not seen in America, the land of the soft and lazy.

What do we see in Russia?  Were Putin and company, men whose words and some of their actions are credible, really in charge, Trump would have left Syria, Turkey would never have been allowed to move in and Israeli planes would not be bombing Damascus 3 days a week.

In nation after nation we see a failure of governance, with struggles only between opposing criminal operations, fighting over rare earth elements, suppressing green technologies, “robotizing” the world through 5G and AI and turning the human race into cattle.

Those you will never know or hear of, the supposed “elites,” when questioned have one thing to say, that the power they once thought they had is gone and that something ominous is over the horizon, something that they all hope will come only after their death.

  1. “Biden and Bloomberg are the “placekeepers” of the old guard who would restore America’s world position but never address the problems that Trump only represents a portion of”. Gordon, you never cease to amaze me with some of your statements and ignoring real facts! I am not discussing Hillary Clinton here and her dirty records as a secretary of state as I have done it many times previously. Papa Biden’s brain is now almost out of order-Good riddance- and you are ignoring his dirty role in the 2014 coup against Yanuchovic’ the Ukraine. I grant you he was not there physically, with Vicky F— the UU Nuland Kagan, to distribute cookies but anyway he is dirty as hell as is son. Then tell that to ex-Presidente of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff, who had been pushed out of office with Biden’s blood stain on the paper! If you expect that slimo to restore Americ’s world position, then fine, be prepared for the next war. That all, he and his ilks, are going to give, These people just like the current status quo and will increase any tensions with Russia and China, meaning looking for a WWIII pretext to start it. Any kid and baby boy/girl can see that. It ids a amazing you just keep ignoring these people’s dirt and verifiable hard facts.

    • … I meant Vicky F— the EU Nuland Kagan. By the way, with all the fat on her, instead of distributing cookies, that old whore should have learned swimming in the Dniep river, on that winter season, as a good exercise and keeping away from nefarious deeds.
      Gordon, you amaze me by supporting and accepting plainly the Steele dossier. He being a MI-6, that should ring a bell! Especially the timing of release of his dossier and Mr Trump’s alleged criminal past.
      All you have is just plain hatred of US president Donald Trump! That is sad because, it blinds your objectivity and judgement. It does make you a favour, plainly speaking. It is still amazing you are keeping to ignore the dirt, which can be hard verified, on say Ms Clinton and Joe Biden.
      I for my part, criticise Mr Trump for his support to the cancers of the world that are Israel and the Gulf region states, including the EO he recently signed. But again, he still have my support for as long he does not bring the US, and the world for that matter, to another major war for the cancer/tumour called Israel and Saudi Arabia, two “presents” given to us by the so called “victors” of WWII. That is what the soldiers have died for!

  2. The most interesting part is within the title, “Those Who Could Save it Aren’t Sure It is Worth It”. If they COULD save it, why don’t they? Surely they must have children, grandchildren, or other loved ones who are worth it?

  3. “Those you will never know or hear of, the supposed “elites,” when questioned have one thing to say, that the power they once thought they had is gone and that something ominous is over the horizon, something that they all hope will come only after their death.” – GD

    Getting rid of the elites would be good, but is this a replacement by something even worse? But based on the record, if it is just then end of the human species, that might not be a bad thing, sad to say.

  4. “As for who Hillary is, we really don’t know.” – GD

    We know enough about who she is from her public statements and career actions, and this still fits if Duff is correct about all the negative things posted in the “alternative media” being false. Hillary Clinton may not be a supporter of the multi-billionaire/trillionaire criminal bankster/mobster 0.0001%, but she is a shill for the 0.1% corporate executive/corporate lawyer/high investment income class, and a person without moral compass (cracking about Qaddafi’s death in an interview tells us that).

    As for Bill Clinton – his execution binge as Governor of Arkansas (including Ricky Ray Rector) in 1992, as well as his “How Dare You!) response to any questioning of 9/11/2001 also tell us he is also nothing more than a political shill with no moral compass.

    Both Clinton’s are obviously sociopaths to those of us who have become good at recognizing them (a skill that makes it impossible to watch political speeches or listen to mainstream reporters without going into a rage).

  5. There are tons of infos about lawfully reclaiming your birth rights and get rid of this fake debt. but you must use it and do it. Look at Anna von Reitz and others who give you these information for free

  6. Where’s his heart plug? Everybody gets a heart plug on Geidi Prime! Could have used Pompous instead of tRump.He’d better be wary of a young child of the Fremen.

  7. There’s no fake narrative around Clinton. This is an annoying US government narrative that is being forced rather than remain believable. It’s great that US INTCOM thinks Clinton is their asset, but who cares what the idiots think? They bent over and gave up America to the Israelis and now think they have a clue how to punch their way out of a wet bag sinking in Zionist noise? Cute.

    Both US and Russia are controlled, like every other “white nation”, by Ashkenazi Organized Crime. Clinton was one of theirs; so is Trump. Corbyn was also an obvious fall guy.

    End the Federal Reserve, the Third National Bank, and fix the broken US Constitution. Israel is the whore; America is Babylon.

    • Americans need to get their heads out of their asses. How does an EO get signed by a sitting POTUS as Dershowitz, connected to Epstein directly, and Kraft look over him? A totally broken US counterintelligence system. It’s beyond FUBAR.

      Who gives a sh** about a continuing relationship with Israel? Should be nuking them.

    • At the very least, a forced regime change in israel. Like the one in Iraq…with some of the same consequences.
      If you catch my drift.

  8. “Can you not tell a Harkonnen plot by the stench it leaves behind”?: Dune. Along with this author Heinlien saw this coming long ago. Don’t you just hate being right when that means the end of the world?

    • “Along with this author Heinlien saw this coming long ago.” – Nawlins

      President and then First Prophet Nehemiah Scudder?

  9. ” The Duke wil die before these eyes, and he’ll know..,he’ll know, that it is I, Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, who encompasses his doom!” Tip of the hat to actor, Kenneth McMillen(1932-1989)

  10. The Americans who live out in the hinterlands beyond Washington are pretty much clueless. They do realize something awful is happening but have no idea where it’s coming from and if you attempted to school them they will for the most part laugh.
    These are the people who rely on network news. They still believe Uncle Wally exists. He died a while back and besides he wasn’t on the up and up either. Most of them have little or no tolerance for conspiracy theories even if they are correct.
    Some are waking up but it’s too little and too late, I fear for any redemption. Far too many households are too deeply in debt and most of them will never find a way out. Neither will their children who graduated out of college with a useless degree and a mountain of debt.
    It doesn’t help when America is as fractured as it now is. Those behind it all do so knowing exactly what outcome they want. The wealthy oligarchs and technocrats will be the new rulers of America. They will be worse than anything in history past.

    • “in the hinterlands”. shit, most amurkans, hinterlands, flyover and the coasts get their daily news off the tee bee. and most or all of the msm sources “have little or no tolerance for conspiracy theories.”

  11. i’ll add another adjective to your title, “Carelessness, Cowardice and Incompetence.” If the demrats bungled investigating 2016 election corruption to the extent that their impeachment process can’t nail even a single big red target to the sitting pres’ back, those incompetent and irresponsible duly elected representatives don’t qualify as serving their electorate. and their similarly incompetent, mislabeled and mistaken former pres candidate likely couldn’t either operate the controls of the office she was running for.

    • The Dems have ruined their chances for 2020 just as Labour has in Britain. They have chosen to ignore its major support of the working middle class in favor of identity politics and that will be its own destruction. The Democratic party has doomed itself by allying with extreme leftists, feminists and assorted weirded out morons who can’t figure out if they’re male or female. They have abandoned their true heritage as a party for the working people and now consider them as deplorables.
      RIP, the late great Democratic party.

  12. Thanks for this article, Gordon.
    RIP, Thomas Mattingly.
    I understand the premise for this title, that stupidity, venality and greed have attacked the heart of our country, and that the author is reporting on what others are feeling despair about.

    So, I’m reflecting on their despair: For groups of people to decide that there is nothing left of America worth saving is like leaving your dead on the battlefield. I’ve known people who spent their lives moving heaven and earth to meet contractual deliverables. Many of them are dead now, but they are still my people, and one doesn’t turn on one’s own people. So, I won’t turn my back on their legacy because it would be like leaving our dead on the battlefield, despite millions of other Americans being brain-dead, greedy or venal. We might walk among losers, but we are lead by winners, i.e. the ones who made their lives count.

  13. Geez, Gordon;
    Between you, Jack Heart, Preston James and Doug Dietrich a narrative is painted beyond any Heinlein or Stephen King. It’s unmanningly frightening to me if I let it. I literally almost puked from the adrenaline surge. What’s the answer, if any? I’ve done one thing lately I haven’t done since I was a little kid and that was pray, for our world and everything in it. This is freaking scary.

    • Well John, Slickback is talking heavyweight champions and you want to bring Sargent Slaughter and King Kong Bundy into the conversation (I worked with both of them, I’d sooner have my ex-wife back me up). Dick was a meth head who wrote for his next fix, we covered him in Titthakara:
      And Orwell a red herring to divert the attention away from A Clockwork Orange, written by Anthony Burgess a real live insider. With the dues I have paid I really resent being lumped with either one of those paid circus clowns. As far as your take on “Americans who live out in the hinterlands beyond Washington” having little stomach for “conspiracy theories,” well that’s why their called rubes in New York City. Been doing a lot of travelling lately, meeting the audience so to say. Americas backwoods, at least east of the Mississippi are peopled by the salt of the earth, moral people, good people who wouldn’t hesitate to give you the shirt off their back if they thought you needed it more than them. But pitting them against the consortium NYC Jews, Texas oil barons, and New England bluebloods who have hijacked their country is like throwing a goldfish into a tank of Piranhas, that’s why it falls on us to protect them and what a thankless job it is…
