Sputnik International: The Office of the Director of National Intelligence is scaling back its election security briefings to Congress, according to two sources familiar with the matter and documents reviewed by POLITICO. The move has enraged congressional Democrats, who have long charged the Trump administration with downplaying threats to U.S. elections from foreign actors, especially Russia. How reasonable and substantiated are the claims and fears of the Democrats in this regard? Do you think the Democrats will be able to accuse Russia of interfering in the elections again? What else can we expect from the Democrats in this regard?
Mark Dankof: As I said to Press TV Iran some days ago, the Democratic Party lost in 2016 because they ran a flawed campaign with a lousy candidate. I predict they will lose again to Trump, because once more they have nominated a terrible candidate who does not need Russian help to beat himself in what I believe will be an electoral landslide.
After blowing $32 million dollars on the Mueller Russia Gate investigation, the Democrats came up with absolutely nothing.
The real story is the criminal actions of Hillary Clinton, the DNC-linked Fusion GPS group, and John McCain in using Christopher Steele in the UK to produce the so-called Steele Dossier and to employ McCain as the conduit of the dossier to the FBI which subsequently went to the FISA court to obtain extraordinary powers of investigation and surveillance of the alleged Trump-Russia collusion while concealing who and what was behind the production of the document.
The August 14th story in the New York Times of Adam Goldman, entitled “Ex-FBI Agent Expected to Plead Guilty in Review of Russia Probe,” suggests the tip of the iceberg the Democrats want to conceal:
“The lawyer, Kevin Clinesmith, 38, who was assigned to the Russia investigation, plans to admit that he altered an email from the C.I.A. that investigators relied on to seek renewed court permission in 2017 for a secret wiretap on the former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, who had at times provided information to the spy agency.”
The second point to be made is the ridiculous character of charging Russia as being the chief pariah in foreign interference in American elections, when it is obvious that the Zionist entity and the Israeli Lobby in the United States routinely buys elections for favored assets in both the Democratic Party and the GOP. AIPAC and its fellow travelers should be brought under the jurisdiction of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). But it will never happen. John and Robert Kennedy attempted to have the American Zionist Council (AZC), the forerunner of AIPAC, registered as the lobby of a foreign country. That, and the attempts of JFK to have the Israeli Dimona Nuclear Plant brought under international and American regulation and inspection had more than a little to do, I believe, with the events of November 1963 and June of 1968. See Laurent Guyénot in the Unz Review on this sordid subject.
Finally, the Democratic Party’s obsession with Russia is not simply rooted in the scapegoating of the latter for the former’s unassisted and considerable talent for blowing national elections, but in their hatred of a resurrection of Russian national fortunes under Putin and undergirded by a renewal of Russian Orthodox culture as the ideological foundation for this. This not only is an affront to the world view of a Globalist Democratic elite which desires a world government under the control of World Zionism and Western Central Bankers (identical to the McCain elite in the GOP), but an affront to the advance globally of the Democratic Gospel of Cultural Marxism as expressed in their infatuation with abortion-on-demand, Planned Parenthood, and the most militant elements in the LGBTQ leviathan in the United States.
But again, the Democrats will lose this election in November. They have a terrible and flawed candidate, and are losing poll points ongoingly for their embrace of BLM and Antifa revolutionaries who are engaging in violent pillaging, arson, and looting of some of America’s most significant cities. As this continues, it will not be lost on independent and presently uncommitted voters that without exception, these cities have Democratic mayors and are located in states with Democratic governors. Appeasing these Marxist revolutionaries, allowing their own territories to be pillaged, supporting a revolving door criminal justice system for violent felons, and assailing Americans who lawfully defend themselves with weapons and belong to the NRA, is a great way to blow another election. And after they do, it will be because of “The Russians.”
