What Would Winston Churchill Do? (Chapter 14)

THE RED SCARE 

Today in America we are preoccupied with Russia all over again…

A special prosecutor It seems that the Trump campaign had at least 18 contacts with Russians as Michael Flynn and other advisers to Donald Trump’s campaign were in contact with Russian officials and others with Kremlin ties in at least 18 occasions via calls and emails, during the last seven months of the 2016 presidential race…

And he gets criticized for that. As if we don’t want to have any peace in our lives. What is wrong with that picture?

Do we want to have another debacle like that deadly battle of Sebastopol where the “Charge of the Light Brigade?” took place and became the killing fields of Crimea in the Balaclava conflict that saw the original “Valley Of Death” unfolding and taking away the lives of the participants. We don’t have to do this just in order to learn that we need to cooperate with Russia today. We don’t need to have a bloodbath before we wise up. We don’t need to do this again, because we ought to change and start cooperating if we are to join our forces with Russia and fight together to win the dastardly war against the biggest existential enemy we have ever faced.

That evil enemy today being the militant Islam… we need all Christians to be together like another Crusade that we have to execute.

And here is where the memory of the Crimean War becomes quite instructive to all of us.

Here is a poem to remind us of the wrongheadedness of fighting against Russia which is a fellow Christian nation. Its a giant foolishness because our division will only serve to bolster the Islamists who at the end of the day they are our common enemy…

Stupid does not begin the describe this position of the Liberal Democrat elites of Washington… and their stupid adherents across the land.

The Charge of the Light Brigade

By Lord Alfred Tennyson


1.Half a league, half a league,
 Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
 Rode the six hundred.
“Forward, the Light Brigade!
“Charge for the guns!” he said:
Into the valley of Death
 Rode the six hundred.2.”Forward, the Light Brigade!”
Was there a man dismay’d?
Not tho’ the soldier knew
 Someone had blunder’d:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
 Rode the six hundred.3.Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon in front of them
 Volley’d and thunder’d;
Storm’d at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of Hell
 Rode the six hundred.4.Flash’d all their sabres bare,
Flash’d as they turn’d in air,
Sabring the gunners there,
Charging an army, while
 All the world wonder’d:
Plunged in the battery-smoke
Right thro’ the line they broke;
Cossack and Russian
Reel’d from the sabre stroke
 Shatter’d and sunder’d.
Then they rode back, but not
 Not the six hundred.

5.Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon behind them
 Volley’d and thunder’d;
Storm’d at with shot and shell,
While horse and hero fell,
They that had fought so well
Came thro’ the jaws of Death
Back from the mouth of Hell,
All that was left of them,
 Left of six hundred.

6.When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
 All the world wondered.
Honor the charge they made,
Honor the Light Brigade,
 Noble six hundred.

And this is what the boys of the light Brigade faced and had to fall back after heavy loses. A sustained barrage of well aimed cannon batteries from the Russian positions that were well prepared for any assault.

The light brigade suffered extremely heavy loses and it never recovered during the Crimean conflict… although at that time they offered cover and support to the retreating Turkish Muslim forces.

Do we need to repeat history in order to get to learn that Christians can support each other, against the common enemy the Muslim fundamentalist?

Think about it…

The current telephone calls and email interactions of the team of the Elections for Trump in 2016 with the Russians, now form part of the record that is being reviewed by the FBI and congressional investigators who are probing Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election, and are looking into contacts between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

Six of the previously undisclosed contacts described to Reuters were phone calls between Sergei Kislyak, Russia’s ambassador to the United States, and Trump advisers, including Flynn, Trump’s first national security adviser, three current and former officials said.

Conversations between Flynn and Kislyak accelerated after the Nov. 8 vote as the two discussed establishing a back channel for communication between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin that could bypass the U.S. national security bureaucracy, which both sides considered hostile to improved relations…

In January, the Trump White House initially denied any contacts with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign. The White House and advisers to the campaign have since confirmed four meetings between Kislyak and Trump advisers during that time.

The people who described the contacts, said they had seen no evidence of wrongdoing or collusion between the campaign and Russia in the communications reviewed so far. But the disclosure could increase the pressure on Trump and his aides to provide the FBI and Congress with a full account of interactions with Russian officials and others with links to the Kremlin during and immediately after the 2016 election.

The White House did not verify this report but it is considered true…

Separately, a spokesman for the Russian embassy in Washington said: “We do not comment on our daily contacts with the local interlocutors.”

The 18 calls and electronic messages took place between April and November 2016 as hackers engaged in what U.S. intelligence concluded in January was part of a Kremlin campaign to discredit the vote and influence the outcome of the election in favor of Trump over his Democratic challenger, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton.

President Donald Trump joined by Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, Vice President Mike Pence, senior advisor Steve Bannon, Communications Director Sean Spicer and then National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, spoke by phone with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin in the Oval Office yesterday and that is a good sign of improved relations and thawing of the tensions…

Those discussions focused on mending U.S.-Russian economic relations strained by sanctions imposed on Moscow, cooperating in fighting Islamic State in Syria and containing a more assertive China, the sources said.

Members of the Senate and House intelligence committees have gone to the CIA and the National Security Agency to review transcripts and other documents related to contacts between Trump campaign advisers and associates and Russian officials and others with links to Putin, people with knowledge of those investigations told Reuters.

The U.S. Justice Department said on Wednesday it had appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential campaign and possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia. Mueller will now take charge of the FBI investigation that began last July. Trump and his aides have repeatedly denied any collusion with Russia.

In addition to the six phone calls involving Kislyak, the communications described to Reuters involved another 12 calls, emails or text messages between Russian officials or people considered to be close to Putin and Trump campaign advisers.

One of those contacts was by Viktor Medvedchuk, a Ukrainian oligarch and politician, according to one person with detailed knowledge of the exchange and two others familiar with the issue.

It was not clear with whom Medvedchuk was in contact within the Trump campaign but the themes included U.S.-Russia cooperation, the sources said. Putin is godfather to Medvedchuk’s daughter.

Medvedchuk denied having any contact with anyone in the Trump campaign.
“I am not acquainted with any of Donald Trump’s close associates, therefore no such conversation could have taken place.”

Methinks that we should stop fearing Russia and Putin and lets instead try to find out how we can cooperate together…

 

Putin Riding a Space Rock

 

In the conversations during the campaign, Russian officials emphasized a pragmatic, business-style approach and stressed to Trump associates that they could make deals by focusing on common economic and other interests and leaving contentious issues aside, the sources said.

Veterans of previous election campaigns said some contact with foreign officials during a campaign was not unusual, but the number of interactions between Trump aides and Russian officials and others with links to Putin was exceptional.

“It’s rare to have that many phone calls to foreign officials, especially to a country we consider an adversary or a hostile power,” Richard Armitage, a Republican and former deputy secretary of state, told Reuters.

Beyond Medvedchuk and Kislyak, the identities of the other Putin-linked participants in the contacts remain classified and the names of Trump advisers other than Flynn have been “masked” in intelligence reports on the contacts because of legal protections on their privacy as American citizens. However, officials can request that they be revealed for intelligence purposes.

U.S. and allied intelligence and law enforcement agencies routinely monitor communications and movements of Russian officials.

After Vice President Mike Pence and others had denied in January that Trump campaign representatives had any contact with Russian officials, the White House later confirmed that Kislyak had met twice with then-Senator Jeff Sessions, who later became attorney general.

Kislyak also attended an event in April where Trump said he would seek better relations with Russia. Senior White House adviser Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, also attended that event in Washington. In addition, Kislyak met with two other Trump campaign advisers in July on the sidelines of the Republican convention.

Trump fired Flynn in February after it became clear that he had falsely characterized the nature of phone conversations with Kislyak in late December – after the Nov. 8 election and just after the Obama administration announced new sanctions on Russia. Flynn offered to testify to Congress in return for immunity from prosecution but his offer was turned down by the House intelligence committee.

And that is the whole lot of the Nothing Burger the Liberal Mass Media has become hysterical about…

A few phone calls and some emails.

And a Presidential call from a Leader to a Leader in order to resolve crisis and protect both countries from Militant Islamic Terrorism.

We seem to be forgetting that Russia has been our friend and our staunch ally during the years we fought fascism together…

That’s how we defeated Hitler and that is how we shall defeat Islamic Fundamentalism and the North Korean type of apocryphal and teleological ideology of Communism. Russian help is instrumental in both of these conflicts, and as Winston Churchill often said: “Let the Russian People Rejoice Because We Are Partners In This Conflict Against the Greatest Evil The World has Ever Known.”

As you can see Winston spoke about being FRIENDS with the Russian people in order to fight against the greatest EVIL the world has ever seen today.

And that EVIL is Islamic Fundamentalism…

Who can dispute that the Islamic Militants wish us death and dishonor?

We all know that.

Then why do we treat them with kid gloves?

The Munich Security Conference, the yearly Conference for defense ministers of NATO countries, was more notable for the awkward moments, the lack of spark and the unaltered confusion about the new, dizzying realities of President Donald Trump’s administration.

For the Americans and their European counterparts gathered in the Bavarian capital, it was the natural renewal of a now 70-year-old mutual assurance that takes place every time a new President takes office in Washington.

The Americans who flew over for the Munich defense gathering — Vice President Mike Pence, Defense Secretary James Mattis and Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly — rehashed bipartisan boilerplate about the transatlantic relationship.

They knew what the Europeans, suddenly in the unprecedented position of worrying about rather than relying on America, wanted to hear. The continental news headlines relayed the intended message of, to paraphrase Pence, America’s “strong support” and “unwavering commitment” to NATO.

Another cause of European indigestion is the ultimatum on defense spending delivered by Mattis and repeated by Pence on Saturday. As both said, the new boss in Washington expects the Europeans to spend more on their militaries. Currently, only four NATO countries besides the U.S. meet the bloc’s self-declared 2 percent of GDP defense budget threshold.

More money for arms and men is music to the ears of most defense ministers. Germany’s Ursula Von der Leyen barely could restrain her joy in embracing the U.S. call. A conservative from the ruling Christian Democrats, she’s been fighting a largely losing battle against the junior center-left coalition partners to loosen defense purse strings.

It was more the vagueness of the demand that left Europeans uneasy. A senior European Union official called the 2% goal “a very sketchy, incomplete concept” and certainly not what Brussels wants to see. But he was really speaking for what Berlin wants to see, and if the lagging and spendthrift Europeans don’t open-up their wallets by the end of the year as demanded, and Chancellor Angela Merkel, who said that Germany would build-up its NATO commitment at its own pace — further delay to live up to their commitments — then what is the Trump administration going to do?

Who knows what’s next? Would that defeatist attitude, render those collective “hosannas” to Article 5, moot, and irrelevant, and thus push the United States towards the European exits?

Indeed it will. We are with the Brexit crowd — the smart AngloSaxon alliance of English speaking nations and we best prepare for the next conflict to be fought with the allies we can count on, and live the Muslim accommodating globalists, behind. Merkel and Hillary are peas of the same rotten pod — and we have not room for this kind of appeasers of the Muslim threat.

Angela Merkel and Mike Pence, seemed friendly at the meetings, but after Pence visited Dachau, the extermination camp inside Munich that killed hundreds of thousands of Jews and others defined by Hitler’s Germany in 1940’s as undesirable – any sense of US–German camaraderie vanished.

There was also far less for the Germans to take heart from, than the advertised “friendship” in the most closely-watched and first international encounter of the New US Administration that took place in Munich. On Saturday morning, Pence and Merkel sat side-by-side and delivered speeches, one after the other. Her speech was boring and meaningless. Whereas Pence’s speech had the audience’s full and riveted attention.

 

Screen Shot 2017-05-18 at 10.06.04 PM

 

After the talk, the Norwegian secretary-general of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg said: “I don’t believe America First means America Only.” This came from a head of NATO and was said while straining to spin the Trump doctrine positively, and smooth out the most disturbing few weeks in transatlantic relations in recent memory.

Pence repeatedly invoked Trump’s name, and aimed a few higher rhetorical notes about the alliance: “Your struggles are our struggles, your success is our success and, ultimately, we walk into the future together.” Immediately thereafter, one European statesman gave his assessment about the VPs speech and his well rehearsed performance and said: “Vice President Pence sounded Presidential — obviously he is practicing.”

It was what wasn’t included in VP Pence’s speech that dominated the corridor conversations afterward. As more than one person noted, the vice president didn’t utter the words “European Union,” confirming — among the more alarmist — that the Trump administration is out to dismantle the other pillar, besides NATO, of the post-war Western order.

Pence didn’t say anything kind about Merkel, much less pay tribute to the German host, the most powerful European leader who has been a frequent target of Trump’s barbs. That task fell to McCain the previous day. And it was the absence of anything beyond tepid applause that showed how little this crowd took to the socially conservative Republican from Indiana.

A few other Republicans in Munich said Pence was “a bit tone deaf,” in the words of one, giving the kind of American-focused campaign speech he has delivered so often for the past half year. Also trying to reassure, they said that what mattered is that he came and will be in Brussels on Monday.

The man who was on everyone’s mind here was, of course, not even in Munich. Europe’s encounter with President Trump will have to wait until a NATO summit scheduled for late May.

Most people felt fine about the rapprochement between the US and Germany, but scratch a little deeper and the discomfort among the European elites burst out. One cause of it is the whiplash, or massive case of cognitive dissonance, brought on by the things that top figures in the Trump administration said in Brussels, Bonn and Munich this week — and, well, what their boss has been doing and saying his first three weeks in office.

Pleasing the NATO crowd, Mattis and Pence dutifully repeated America’s obligations under Article 5 of the NATO charter, the mutual defense clause, though to some it was remarkable that they even felt they had to.

More questions arise out of this meeting than have been answered.

Namely:

But how much of the reality represented by the gray-haired, experienced, boring Americans who were here is the reality of the new Trump foreign policy?

Or is it to be found in the potshots taken at the EU and the praise for Brexit, the criticism of Germany, and the frequent nice words for Russia, in the president’s Twitter feed?

Is the new commander-in-chief at the White House “100 percent behind NATO” as U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May claimed at their meeting last month?

Or is the alliance “obsolete” in Trump’s repeated phrase?

“What’s the reality?

All of it.

Still the Europeans and also the TRUMP administration’s leading lights on Europe, provided no lasting answers to these questions — and it would be unfair to think they could.

Yet the highlight of Munich this year was the words that were not uttered. Because it was what wasn’t in Pence’s speech that dominated the corridor conversations amongst the elites there…

Maybe they are thinking that the US Vice President didn’t even utter the words “European Union” however the fact that the NATO Alliance on the 15th of February, as the Alliance’s Ministers of Defense assembled at the Nato headquarters in Brussels, in the presence of General James Mattis, Secretary of Defence in the US Trump administration – all eyes were on that table, because of the seriousness of the discussion.

At this meeting the ministers decided that Nato must suspend all of its operations in Syria immediately.

They also agreed that establishing a South Hub and giving, it the mandate of controlling Africa and the Middle East — was a good idea. It was also decided that NATO was to suspend spying flights in Syria effective immediately.

Right from the start of the war that was launched by a joint Washington, London, and Paris, coalition against Syria — NATO has been responsible for the surveillance of the battlefield through its AWACS and its members’ satellites.

The real time advanced intelligence that was continuously gathered, was then immediately filtered and transmitted to jihadist groups, thus allowing them to escape and outwit the Syrian Arab Army, and the Russian Air-Strikes. Indeed we were all working for the Islamic Militants Terrorists — without even knowing it because the Clinton Obama doctrine was to keep the people in the dark and feed them shit through the mass media as if they were simple mushrooms.

But the people cottoned on to their betrayal of the Christian Cause throughout the War, and rebelled against the Mass Media BS and thus shoved them out of office, and made the Clinton News Network (CNN) completely irrelevant and just a mouthpiece of these identity politics as seen by the confused transgender people like Cooper and Maddow and their minions.

The American people want to fight the Muslim barbarians and not to cuddle them, arm them and assist them with our own highly expensive and highly secure intelligence product.

Americans are peaceful people but they can be turned to become warriors of the Faith when their values are assaulted for a very long time.

 

 

On withdrawing its AWACS, the NATO Organization made it clear that it is not taking a position in the conflict any longer. Because this is a internecine warfare, which currently puts one Syrian Arab army against another, and then all of them against the Christians and the Kurds, and many others.

Getting out of that Syrian mess and thus avoiding the possibility of even accidentally getting into a heated fight against the Russian Christians — just to favor a bunch of crazed Muslim militants is the pinnacle of stupidity.

Yet that was the Clinton-Obama doctrine that created ISIS and had pushed us to go up against our own kind in the Syrian conflict, and to favor the Muslim Caliphate. Not just stupid — but a treasonous criminal and dastardly policy that only crooked Hillary who was financed by the Saudi Wahabbis could have done in cold blood.

Getting American Military might and muscle work for the ISIS muslim nut jobs is what a Muslim Obama would have approved… but maybe he is not a Muslim and just a fool running an errand for his paymasters. Who knows? And who cares?

Myself just like grandpa Winston hate betrayals of any kind… and the Obama administration represents a giant betrayal for all of us. Keep that in mind next time you think of Madame President and her betrayals and high crimes, and you might feel a certain tinge and a pinching in your heart.

And this memorial remains from the battle of Balaklava in Sebastopol and from the memory of the Charge of the light Brigade though the “Valley of Death” in Crimea — to remind us that when we are divided we certainly fall.

No need to fight the Russians today but there is an imminent need to fight the Muslim threat in all the theaters of war, unless we want to have another useless Crimean War, albeit with nuclear weapons.

The Obelisk of Sebastopol.

Therefore the withdrawal of the American & NATO assets from the Syrian region is simply the right thing to do, albeit at a rather late time.

Yet better late than never.

Finally that decision represents the single most necessary effort to stop digging ourselves deeper into the Syrian quagmire and start putting Syria’s Humpty Dumpty back together.  It is the right thing to do even though that action “disgusts” many soft skinned NATO allies, and especially the Germans, because it aggravates their inner Goth & Hun, all over again, that has gotten riled up to present themselves as humanitarian while inviting the war and the refugees to continue their inexorable journey towards Hell. Seems to me the Germans like Hell way too much.

Of course the Germans have benefited mightily from this War and would hate to lose the constantly adding up revenues… and the source of cheap labor that comes to serve them as slaves.

But the wheel of fortune turns and such are the fortunes of war and peace, these days in Munich, in Syria, in Brussels, and especially in Washington DC…

Damn, when will the liberals learn from their mistakes? When will they acknowledge their stupidity, like the liberal icon Lord Palmerston the British Prime Minister who was the leader that plunged us into this idiotic conflict that we came to rue — the Crimean war?

Yours,

Dr Churchill

PS:
In this issue of Strategic Security – President Trump knows well, that European and Global Security is not advanced by Germany’s actions, and her lording it over Europe like a jack booted thug, but rather is undermined by them as it always has been. That is the Churchillian view as well.

As old Winston Churchill said in one of his most acerbic moments:

“The Huns, like the Doberman, will be either at your feet, or at your throat.”

“That is their default state, and there is nothing in between.”

Seems Donald Trump knows that too.
