Misunderstanding the Deep State

According to Donald Trump and his partisans, Democrats—Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Democrats in Congress, the liberal media—are the Deep State. They also selectively include some Republicans, those who don’t support Trump. This characterization serves to hide the real Deep State—the bankers, transnational corporatists, their foundations, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the intelligence community, and the military industrial and surveillance complex. The reason the Deep State remains submerged, so to speak, is to diminish accountability and give the appearance the political class, the public state, is responsible for decisions. After he assumed office, Trump staffed his administration with Deep State operatives. He courted many prior to his win. For instance, he met with Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations. He also met with uber globalist and Rockefeller associate Henry Kissinger. The misunderstanding by his supporters of the true nature of the Deep State serves one

The Mysterious Crash of A Russian Airliner: Bad Weather, Technical Malfunction, or Terrorism?

In the sixty-ninth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers: Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Vedomosti, and Komsomolskaya Pravda Moscow Edition. He examines the possible causes of the crash of the Russian passenger plane AN-148. Was the crash due to bad weather, technical malfunction, human error, or terrorism? In addition, Professor Kovacevic chronicles the dangerous trend of the creeping territorial fragmentation of Moldova, which he sees as a key aspect of the Gladio C project, directed against the Russian influence in Eastern Europe. He also looks at the current challenges that the Russian state-owned natural gas company Gazprom is facing in building the so-called Turkish Stream pipeline. Lastly, he discusses recent claims that Grigory Rodchenko, the alleged Russian anti-doping whistleblower, has actually been an agent of the Canadian intelligence service.
