Three Years of "Russiagate"

Another essential update on The New Cold War

Wed, Jan 16, 2019 - 11:54am

John Batchelor and Professor Cohen recorded another excellent discussion again last evening and they update us on the futility and hysteria of the continuing "Russiagate" investigation. Keep in mind that we are now nearing three full years of allegations and innuendo yet there is still no concrete evidence and no formal charges.

As John and Steve speculate, all of this is simply another front on The New Cold War where Russia is the essential enemy and boogeyman. This New Cold War is essential to the maintenance of power for The War Party and, as such, they will do anything to promote it.

Thanks to John and Steve for all their efforts over the past five years and thanks to John for battling through his ongoing flu virus. Professor Cohen has summarized the past five years of these discussions and compiled them in his new book, "War With Russia". If you're new to TFMR or have otherwise missed these weekly podcasts, you should be sure to purchase the book. Here's an easy link:

Thanks for listening and staying on top of this very dangerous situation.

Vilification Of Trump & Putin ?

I think it was in Helsinki where Putin handed Trump a hard drive with some 160 Tb of data. Might this be the reason for the hysteria ? What was on the hard drive ? 9-11 ? Uranium One ? The missing 21 Trillion ? Recall the Russian journalist ( a female who's name escapes me right now ) that warned America would be attacked months before 9-11. And she said it would be not by a Country but by a group of people that had access to funds of some 300 TRILLION dollars. I would love to know what was on that hard drive.

there's no proof of some secret hard drive transfer

That's all just internet hearsay.

John Batchelor sounds like I felt last October

It really stuck to the lungs. The shennannigans that the secret-super-police-state hasn't left anyone untouched.

160 Tb Drive

I can't find anything on the 160 Tb drive. But I remember it well because I followed the Helsinki summit closely. Whether it's real or not we may never know. We're still waiting for the un-redacted Kennnedy Files so I won't hold my breath. But recall the warning from the Russian journalist/economist where she warned America that they would be attacked prior to 9-11 by a private entity with access to over 300 Trillion dollars. Dr. Farrell mentions it here in part 2 at the 3.25 mark

The Russians have always had one of the best Security Apparatus in the World. They know who the Nazi's are. They fought them. We gave them sanctuary. And that's a fact.

"First, the rally in precious metals looks to be over for now. Both GDX and GDXJ tested their 400-dma’s a few times and have failed. The internals (breadth, momentum, relative strength) have been flashing warning signs for days."
