United States Nunes memo, Russia-bashing distraction from war danger, inequality

This video from the USA says about it itself:

Russiagate is Dangerous, Will Washington Get the Memo?

2 February 2018

The partisan fight over Rep. Devin Nunes’ memo is consuming Washington and even leading prominent liberals to question if Nunes is a Russian agent. Russia scholar Stephen F. Cohen of Princeton University says Russiagate has now become “much more than McCarthyism.”

“This discourse is now the norm, on MSNBC, CNN, New York Times… That people who doubt the narrative of what’s loosely called ‘Russiagate’ are somehow acting under the spell of the Kremlin.”

The text of the, meanwhile released, memo by Republican Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, about the 2016 Clinton and Trump presidential campaigns and the FBI is here.

If the United States Democratic party would be a real opposition party, then they would fight Donald Trump for making the rich richer and the poor poorer, for climate denialism, for warmongering, for attacking civil liberties, for his xenophobic attacks on Dreamers and refugees, etc. Instead, the Wall Street Democrats sell out the Dreamers. And they resurrect Cold War-style brinkmanship towards nuclear war, by drowning everything in cries of ‘Russia! Russia!’ They resurrect the Cold War dead body of the battle against ‘godless Communism’ even though the Soviet Union does not exist anymore, the Warsaw pact does not exist anymore, and the Russian government is neither atheist nor communist. Instead of fighting for transparency, Democratic politicians fight to keep the Nunes memo secret, to keep secret services’ activities as secret as possible. While more state secrets always mean more steps on the road to non-accountability and dictatorship.

One might think it is impossible to be further to the right than Trump. But it looks like the Clintonite Wall Street Democratic politicians are trying that really hard, bring too scared to criticize Trump from the left.

The Democrats responded to the prospective release of the Nunes memo with undisguised hysteria, declaring that it threatened national security and was insufficiently deferential to the US intelligence agencies. Now that the memo has been released, the Democrats’ claim that it contains sensitive national security secrets has been exposed as lies: here.

Democrats defend FBI as Republican memo shows anti-Russia campaign built on illegal spying: here.

The announcement Friday by the US Department of Justice that a federal grand jury has returned criminal indictments against 13 Russian citizens and three Russian companies, charging illegal activities in the 2016 US presidential election, has become the occasion for a barrage of war propaganda in the American corporate media: here.
