Mixed Messages on Russia: Trump Administration Divided and All Over the Place

Mixed Messages on Russia

The Trump administration (including Trump himself) have highly mixed messages on Russia. Will Trump deliver on his election promise to be friendly towards Russia?

Mixed messages on Russia

are coming out of the Trump administration, which seems to be hopelessly divided and anything but cohesive on the Russian issue. Much to the great disappointment of many who see that a peaceful US-Russia relationship is the key to avoiding World War 3, Trump has for the most part changed his tune on Russia … sort of. At today’s press conference he again stressed the need for a good relationship with Russia. Yet, only yesterday on Feb. 15th 2017, Trump himself put out a tweet that alleged that Russia took Crimea and asked if Obama was too soft on Russia? So which is it? Has Trump done a big U-Turn on Russia? Here is a list of the mixed messages on Russia coming out of the current US government.

Mixed Messages on Russia #1: Trump Claims Russia “Stole” Crimea

In his press interview with Theresa May, Trump ludicrously claimed he was in general consistent with his positions and didn’t flip flop or change his stance. Given how inconsistent he has been, that is quite false, and now we have another giant flip flop. The Deep State, the Military Intelligence Complex (MIC), the Zionists, the neocons or whoever else have evidently got to Trump who has now tweeted (above) that “Crimea was TAKEN by Russia” (Trump’s emphasis in capital letters). What!? Why is Trump revisiting this point when independent observers established that the Crimean people voted 96% to return to Russia in a legal referendum?

Mixed Messages on Russia #2: Trump Insists US Needs a Good Relationship with Russia

At the above-linked press conference (Feb. 16th 2017), Trump said:

“If Russia and the United States actually got together and got along – and don’t forget: we’re a very powerful nuclear country and so are they … I’ve been briefed. And I can tell you one thing about a briefing that we’re allowed to say, because anybody that ever read the most basic book can say it, nuclear holocaust would be like no other … If we have a good relationship with Russia, believe me, that’s a good thing. Not a bad thing.”

Mixed Messages on Russia #3: Trump Sacks his National Security Advisor Michael Flynn

In one of the first shocks of the fledgling Trump Administration, Michael Flynn was fired by President Trump himself after it was revealed that he had allegedly broken the 1799 Logan Act by discussing sanctions and other matters with Russian Ambassador to the US, Sergey Kislyak, back in December 2016. However, when is breaking the Logan Act such a big deal, especially when you consider all the NWO insiders who gather at Bilderberg every year to discuss all sorts of sensitive national matters and policy behind closed doors?

The allegations may not be true. The FBI cleared Flynn by stating that he was “cooperative and provided truthful answers”. Strangely, Flynn was not allowed to review the call log and clear himself … which indicates that this affair may have been some kind of a coup. The Post and Courier reports:

“When Flynn was attacked in the media for his ties to Russia, he was not allowed by the White House to defend himself. Over the weekend, he was instructed not to speak to the press when he was in the fight for his political life. His staff was not even allowed to review the transcripts of his call to the Russian ambassador.”

Flynn was known to be friendly towards Russia. Was the framing and firing of Flynn (brought about by the MSM which published the leaks and called for his head) part of a grander NWO strategy to remove Russophilic or Russia-friendly elements from the new Trump Administration? Yes, Flynn was vehemently anti-Iran, so the NWO lost someone pushing for war with Iran, but is it more geopolitically significant for them to generate further fear and hatred against Russia than Iran at this stage? Let’s face it, there is already a lot of anti-Iran sentiment among Trump’s cabinet and staff.

Mixed Messages on Russia #4: Tillerson’s Comments: Russia is a Danger

Another manifestation and reflection of the inconsistency of Donald Trump’s positions and policies is the degree to which his entire administration is divided on the Russia issue. This was evident quite early on. Trump himself seems to be the only one remaining who is for Russia now that Flynn has ignominiously departed.

For instance, when Rex Tillerson, nominated for Secretary of State, was at his Senate confirmation hearing, he referred to Russia as a danger. However, Tillerson is known for his closeness with Russia, having being awarded the “Order of Friendship” by Putin in 2013, so he knew he would have had to have said some strong words about Russia to appease the overwhelmingly Russophobic US Senate.

Mixed Messages on Russia #5: Mattis’ Comments: Russia is Top Threat

Mad Dog Mattis, at his Senate confirmation hearing to become Secretary of Defense, said he placed Russia first among all threats:

“The most important thing is that we recognize the reality of what we deal with Mr. Putin, and that we recognize that he is trying to break the North Atlantic Alliance, and that we take the integrated steps – diplomatic, economic, military – and the alliance steps, working with our allies, to defend ourselves where we must.”

Mixed Messages on Russia #6: Haley’s Comments: We Condemn Russia

Nikki Haley lost no time in using her inaugural address to the UN to condemn Russia, and posted her comments on Twitter (above) to please her masters. She also said the following at her Senate confirmation hearing:

“Russia is trying to show their muscle right now. It’s what they do … I don’t think we can trust them. We have to continue to be very strong back, and show them what this new administration is going to be.”

Mixed Messages on Russia #7: Pompeo’s Comments: Russia Hacked US

Meanwhile, new CIA head Mike Pompeo seems to have his head in the clouds by buying the official line that Russia hacked the US presidential elections. Does everyone at the CIA, both current and incoming staff, really believe this fairy tale? Pompeo said:

“With respect to this report in particular, it’s pretty clear about what took place here, about Russian involvement in efforts to hack information and to have an impact on American democracy  … this was an aggressive action taken by senior leadership inside of Russia.”

mixed messages on russia signpost ukraine russia

The US has a choice: side with Russia and stop funding strife in Ukraine, or keep supporting the illegitimate government of Ukraine a la John McCain.

Mixed Messages on Russia #8: Trump’s Own Plans re: Syria

Finally, another confusing aspect has been Trump’s plans in Syria. Will he work with Russia (as he has suggested in the past) or not? Russia responded to his idea a few weeks ago of safe zones inside Syria, replying that he must have the consent of the Syrian Government under Bashar Al-Assad. However safe zones have been a trick used in the past by NATO et al in their “humanitarian” attacks and invasions of sovereign nations.

Is Trump trying to appease those around him, including the massive apparatus of the MIC? Or is he strong enough in his convictions about the importance of good relations with Russia? Tell us what you think in the comments below.

    Why don’t the hundreds of alternate media get together and directly ask Preident Trump to clarify all of these questions and answer them on the Internet .
    Then we all get to know where things stand .
    The fake msm can also participate but first have to be quiet and listen and agree with the alternat media with what was answered or not.
    This way we get to see who is reporting the truth for a change.

    Of course there are conflicting views on Russia. However, there are many of us who sense intuitively that economic revitalization of the US economy under Trump policies, so long as it comes through peace and retention of our personal liberties and our national sovereignty, will be the sole criteria upon which Trump is judged by history. The rest of Trump’s ego will simply be ignored in a salvific attempt to retrieve some dignity of the Oval Office, …an idea that currently evokes laughter.

    We aren’t completely naive. The middle class has shrunk in proportion to the population and was on 3rd World course of collapse. That, we could finally see.

    Then emerged an unresolved idea contained in the pampered mind of a silver-spooned New York playboy billionaire who unbeknownst to himself was being prepared for office by the Deep State. It was time for misdirection, diversion, and chaos once again. A second choice to Clinton in the Deep State’s opinion, but the Deep State is master at this game using it’s ability to print and fund all the money it wants in pursuit of its ends. The idea was simple and true. “Tell the disenfranchised Deplorables what they want to hear. Washington power elite, once again sold them out through Nafta free trade agreements and the Banksters screwed you once again. I will take your country back In your name. It will be your victory not mine.”

    Looking in the rear view mirror we see the US policies of the past three Administrations. There was indeed complete failure to speak truth to power by US Administrations. They all participate in the big lie due to fear, ineptness, ignorance, unwillingness, and personal conflicts-of-interests that rise to a level of criminality. They fail to realize or act upon the obvious, that we must first end the foreign and private ownership of our Federal Reserve Bank, to end those bank owners’ propensity to entangle the US in endless wars of conquest in their corrupt interests in pursuit of One World Government , Western Banking hegemony and centralized control. Banksters always finance both sides of conflict. They do not lose.

    Now the man of the Deplorable-class must do what he has never done before, serve others before himself. What has he gotten himself into? Feeble attempts to distance himself apart from his little global empire only feed contempt and justly reinforce his opposition.

    Can the pledges of a campaign hold it’s center? Whether President Trump can rise above the distractions of office and subdue the entrapping status quo webs of Federal Reserve Bank, in peace, while retaining our personal liberties and national sovereignty is a light that grows dimmer with each cabinet approval. The “Status Quo” becomes Trumps epitaph of true failure on multiple levels for his Deplorable base, but economic prosperity written for the masses by controlled mainstream media erases all sins for the power elite.

    Pray for your President no matter what party occupies the office. In the final analysis life is a classroom and nothing works until you realize and teach the one thing…

    It turns out that George Soros is the money behind a new real estate venture called Cadre which was founded by Donald Trump’s son in law Jared Kushner and his brother Joshua Kushner.

    The Real Deal has uncovered the fact that George Soros was the man who provided Cadre with a $259 million line of credit. A source told the publication, “Soros has had a long and productive relationship with the Kushner family.”
    Jewish Business News

    The financing was provided; even though, Soros has called President Trump a “would-be dictator.” Well, we now know absolutely for certain why Soros gave credit to Kushner. Kushner was behind Trump’s disastrous decision to drop his original transition team and replace them with Mike Pence, Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon, all of whom have been steadily working against him, his image and his policies, whether Trump is fully aware of it or not.

    It is not clear what other special credit lines Kushner has been getting from Wall Street. But my bet is that Kushner has done secret deals with the banks to remain liquid if and when the economy implodes so that he can buy up foreclosed properties.

    As for Mike Pence, Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus, their closeness to Kushner and their actions strongly suggest the notion they are all Soros operatives. Soros bribes some, blackmails others.

    As usual a great article Makia!
    It seems Trump is the ultimate puppet.
    It is not even clear if this “puppet” has any personal convictions or understanding.
    It is very clear, however, as a result of his naivety?/ignorance?/belligerence? (pick any or all of the above) he has become the ultimate manipulated tool for the further obscen confounding of geopolitics.

    It is very distressing to observe all the conflicts within the new administration. Trump must know his declarations vs Iran,Crimea and Russia in addition to what appears to be a unilateral plan for a no-fly over Syria [at a cost of $1Billion per month] is not only the opposite of fact/reality and illegal but confrontational to Russia and contradicts what he said during his campaign.

    So, we may need to step back and look at the bigger picture. We have various incredibly powerful groups loosely unified as the “globalists” who run the Deep State, the global banking system and control the entire fake/fiat currency system. They can drop us on our heads at any time by collapsing the global financial and currency systems which they are fully capable of doing. Trump and whatever “good” people still remain within the intelligence agencies, the military, corporations and so on, are in a pitched battle against these forces.

    What is Trump’s most important stated goal? Saving America. But the globalists must break America to implement their plan for global governance using the UN as their public “front”. We have already been set up for total destruction economically by these various imperalistic groups. Most of the pillars/props that sustain us economically and make things appear to be “normal” to most people, have already been pulled away.

    “Jeff Rense and Catherine Austin Fitts” have a youtube interview explaining much about our current situation I think we would all find very informative and worth the time to hear. Under discussion it the fact Trump has about a year to “turn the Titanic”. Considering that, it is possible he may have made a deal with the globalists and their most important project; allow Israel to completely dominate the Middle East and the globalists will allow America to survive. This is strictly a guess on my part but it would explain the contradictions regarding what Trump really wants to do and what he will be allowed to do if he wants to save the US.

    Israel has 300+ NUKES — REFUSES inspections —- REFUSES to sign Non-ProliferationTreaty.
    Israel HATES Christianity & GENTILES and denies the Spiritual and Human EQUALITY of NONJews to Jews.
    Israel thinks GREATER ISRAEL should rule the World. “Greater Israel” is all land between the Nile and the Euphrates rivers, Syria, Jordan, most of Saudi Arabia. Greater Israel” requires the breaking up of the existing Arab states into small states. You can find maps they have drawn online. http://www.globalresearch.ca/g… Did you know what the two blue bands on their flag stand for? The Nile and the Euphrates. Israel (using the Gentile USA) is spreading chaos and fracturing all Civilization in the Peoples immediately around it in order to facilitate a land grab for “greater israel”.
    Israel has “DUAL-citizens”(sayanim) whose true loyalty is to Israel, embedded throughout American government/society. According to the Zionist creed, Israel is the state of the Jews, all the Jews. Every Jew in the world belongs to Israel, even if temporarily residing somewhere else
    If Israel could provoke nuclear apocalypse between America&Russia …..and China ….. BY WAY OF DECEPTION…. Israel would be the ONLY NUCLEAR ARMED SUPERPOWER left………
    Especially if it SNEAK nuked many of It’s HATED/HISTORICAL “enemies” While they are bombing each other.(Germany, Poland, England, Egypt, Iraq, basically ALL gentiles should “bear the YOKE of Israel”)Noted Israeli military historian Martin Van Creveld stated that Israel could find itself one day forced to exterminate the European continent using all kinds of weapons including its nuclear arsenal if it felt its demise neared, stressing that Israel also considers Europe a hostile target.
    Does Israel have nuclear missiles aimed at the main world capitals?? — You bet.
    Israel BRAGS about doing similar in Persia/Iran (75,000dead), Jews even CELEBRATE with Purim [slaughter of enemies] and Egypt(all the FIRST BORN CHILDREN)
    David Ben-Gurion, one of the father founders of Israel, described Zionist aims in 1948: “A Christian state should be established [in Lebanon], with its southern border on the Litani river. We will make an alliance with it. When we smash the Arab Legion’s strength and bomb Amman, we will eliminate Transjordan too, and then Syria will fall. If Egypt still dares to fight on, we shall bomb Port Said, Alexandria and Cairo… And in this fashion, we will end the war and settle our forefathers’ account with Egypt, Assyria, and Aram” ………….. read that again
    “and settle our forefathers’ account with Egypt, Assyria, and Aram”
    They are STILL HATING and planning deadly attacks after 3,500+ YEARS .
    How do you think they feel about JESUS CHRIST whom they HATE most of ALL.
    Israel’s MOTTOES:
    (1) NEVER forgive & NEVER forget.
    (2) By Way of Deception you will Do War.
    (3) Their “god” is a WAR god

      The Luciferian Agenda

      Extremely negative thoughts damage the nervous system and brain, such as expressing rage, violence, hatred and the desire to kill and enslave, which attract not only demonic spirits but extradimensional parasites that want to harvest the emotional energy being generated from that body. Currently people on earth are being energetically assaulted and exposed to levels of extreme violence and depravity that are being broadcast by not only the media, but through all aspects of the popular culture. The agenda is to mainstream Satanism throughout all of the popular culture which prepares the terrain for people to become consubstantial with extremely negative forces, as well as connect them to satanic controlled parasites that want to trade places with the human host.

    The Deep State is at war with both Trump and Putin

    Understand that when Israeli intelligence hears “America first” from Trump, they go apeshit. Israel has bribed, extorted and intimidated our politicians for decades and suddenly this upstart billionaire threatens to ruin everything.

    There are many Trump supporters within the FBI. The CIA, however, is against Trump because Trump threatens to ruin their game in the middle east.
    CIA and Mossad work in tandem with British intel. The goal for the CIA was to replace Assad with a puppet and to topple Iran so we could access their oil. Israel works closely with its “sister”, Saudi Arabia, to help this dark cause.The travel ban included 7 countries chosen by both Jared Kushner and Rudy. Why did it not include Saudi Arabia, or Pakistan, or Turkey or other countries that hate us? The seven nations mentioned were chosen by Israel, that’s why. The real reason you see such anti-Russian fever from both Schumer and McCain, Graham and Feinstein, is because the operation has blown up in our faces.
    Lolita Island. Jeffery Epstein, a billionaire convicted of pedophilia received a soft sentence. His island was rigged with video recorders. Many politicians have been compromised. It was a Mossad/CIA operation. Contact ex-senior CIA CCS, Robert David Steele. Bob knows and has even spoken about this with numerous reporters.
    There are videos of some of the most powerful players in the most humiliating positions. If this gets out, not only are the politicians ruined, but the extortion game is over and suddenly, the influence CIA and Mossad wield over Washington, is gone.
    The biggest thing Trump can do is expose PedoGate via Sessions. Big names will go down hard. http://www.henrymakow.com

    Trump knows so little about foreign policy that his remarks reflect only the viewpoint of the last person he talked to. He thinks Netanyahu is someone with whom he makes real estate deals.

    Vice President Mike Pence has been implicated in the pedophile scandal that has the establishment in a panic. According to former CIA analyst Robert David Steele, General Michael Flynn was not dismissed for talking to the Russian ambassador and lying about it. He was fired because he had information on a close friend of Pence who is a pedophile. This is consistent with the fact that Flynn’s son was also fired during the campaign for tweeting about pizzagate.

    Steele says Trump is horribly isolated and needs to reach out to people like himself, Kucinich, Ralph Nader and Jesse Ventura. However, every time Steele has approached the Trump officials, he has been blown off.
    More concerning is that Tory Smith, left, has a series of youtubes accusing Mike Pence of being a multiple child rapist and murderer. Smith, who claimed to be a victim of satanic ritual abuse himself, makes a series of frankly crazy assertions. However, he predicted that Indiana State Police would kill him, and indeed, as of July 2016, he is dead. I happen to know someone who has known Tory Smith for many years and that all he is says is 100 % accurate and they had investigated for many years Child rapist and murderers (Pence has molested 119 boys)in Indiana as governor.

    Steele says Trump needs an electoral reform act that will draw the 70% of people Soros doesn’t control to his side. He says Soros is preparing an “American Spring” uprising to overthrow Trump. He says the NSA has been spying on American politicians for decades and needs to be “shut down.”
    The fact that Flynn and his son were dropped from the Trump team for their focus on pedophiles does not augur well for those who think Trump is going to “drain the swamp”, and destroy the deep state.

    Steele confirms that Jeffrey Epstein’s Palm Beach home and island sex retreat was a Mossad blackmail operation, and we know Trump visited both places.

    So the chances are, he is also compromised.

    Where does the desire to exploit and enslave other people come from?

    The book, Jewish History, Jewish Religion: The Weight of 3000 Years
    by Israel Shahak provides the answer:

    Judaism has always been a totalitarian satanic cult.
    Communism & NWO are Based on Judaism
    The essence of a satanic cult is to control/exploit its members.

    First Jews, then Freemasons and now society as a whole has been inducted into this satanic cult. We’re
    all Jews now.
    Along with its Freemasonic proxy, Judaism actually engages in pedophilia, incest & the ritual sacrifice of children.

    This is why our political & cultural leaders are degenerates, our children are groomed for pedophiles in “sex ed” courses, and Evangelical Christian sects are secretly Satanic and dedicated to “Israel.”

    Although most Jews/Masons are unaware of this satanic conspiracy, it is the real reason for anti Semitism.

    Humanity is impaled on the talons of a demonic monster.

      There are many well-meaning, ordinary Jews who know nothing of the crimes committed by Zionism. Judaism has some Satanic elements, yes, but so do other religions like Christianity and Islam. It’s important not to dehumanize entire groups.
