Why Believe the "Official Story" on Trump-Russia Collusion and Not the "Official Story" on 9/11?


Both stories involved an attack on the US by bad foreign actors
-- the 9/11/2001 attacks were done officially by the terrorist group Al Qaeda.
-- the 11/9/2016 installment of Trump as president was officially done by Russia.

Both official stories were formed by information largely from the US intel agencies and media organizations.

Both events were massively disruptive to our body politic, and threatened the stability of the US government.

Both events favored and help promote extreme right-wing policies, with hints of fascism and a police state, particularly both on border control and demonization of Muslims.

Massive tax cuts that favored the rich and caused huge federal budget deficits were pushed through the Federal government after both events.


-- never really made a lot of sense for Al Qaeda's motives. Such a large attack was bound to lead to a massive retaliation and likely destruction of Al Qaeda. Even if Al Qaeda gambled that GW Bush would attack the middle east and cause the rise of a massive Muslim Jihad, this was still an uncertain and major gamble.

-- never made much sense operationally -- how it was run

-- had overwhelming numbers of pre-warnings for the attack that were ignored

-- the military had run hijacking drills previously that mimicked 9/11 and on 9/11 was also running hijacking drills

-- a forensic analysis of the attacks suggested the official story was wrong-- all the oddities I covered on this blog over the years.

-- the GW Bush administration always claimed the official story was right, and they were known liars.

-- the attacks were supported by "confessions" induced by torture, which rendered the confession useless.

-- there were obvious and strong motives for an inside job or false flag operation -- 1) political power and furtherance of a right-wing agenda, 2) launching of major wars against "terror" in the middle east, thus promoting American hegemony and boosting the military industrial complex.

-- the motives are clear for both Trump and Russia and the motives are coherent. Russia wanted more power and Trump was their owned asset who wanted his own power.

-- events subsequent to the 11/9 attack have supported Trump-Russian collusion, for instance Trump's bizarre behavior towards Russia, secret meetings with Putin at the Helsinki summit.

-- the attacks made sense operationally and forensically-- hacking of private emails, election material and a massive pro-Trump anti-Hillary Clinton propaganda campaign that played on American's biases and the susceptibility of the US media to manipulation.

-- Trump repeatedly claimed the official story was wrong, and he is a pathological liar.

-- torture was not used to prop up the official 11/9 story

-- no one is using the 11/9 attacks to push for any form of military war with Russia

-- there is no coherent or logical counter-narrative for Trump-Russia collusion. It's beyond absurd to say that all the obvious evidence we see int he news is purely invented. And why would it be done? To undercut Trump and help the Dems, because the intel agencies are well known liberals? Right. Or to undercut Trump because he threatens the power of the "Deep State"?  There's no evidence that he's doing anything to reform the intelligence agencies or atone for previous crimes by them. Or is it all to promote increased tensions with Russia and renew the cold war? That doesn't seem to stand up to real scrutiny, since really right now, we are maintaining the status quo with Russia for the past several years (despite actions to ease sanctions on Russia by the Trump admin) and they are still attacking our elections and it's clear Putin likes Trump in power.


The bottom line is:

-- for the 9/11 attacks, the official story is incoherent and there was a strong case for an alternative explanation 

-- for the 11/9 Russian attack, the official story is coherent and there was a no logical case for an alternative explanation

This is how I rationalize these two different positions despite some similarities and worries about the sources for the stories.

Trump Probably Listened in by Speakerphone on the June 2016 Trump Tower Collusion Meeting with the Russians

A growing body of powerful circumstantial evidence suggests Trump may have not only known about in advance but attended—by speakerphone—the June 2016 Trump-Russia meeting at Trump Tower.
... on June 9, 2016, not only was Trump in Trump Tower but he was scheduled to discuss a speech on Clinton dirt with Kushner and Manafort—the same subject as the Russia meeting.
The first question we have to ask is this: "Does *Trump* have a *documented history* of *secretly* listening into *important conversations* in *Trump Tower* via *speakerphone*?" ...
The answer: yes. Trump has a documented history of secretly listening into important conversations in Trump Tower via speakerphone. In a book released in February 2018, Stephen Gilpin describes in detail just such an incident.…
Here's the relevant section of the book, describing a Trump meeting involving (of all people) Michael Cohen. None of the non-Trump Org participants at the meeting were given *any* indication that anyone was secretly listening in on the conversation from the start.
Trump also uses secret speakerphone tactics in his personal meetings in Trump Tower. Here we see described his technique of ruining his male friends' marriages by having their wives secretly listen to Trump talk sex with their husbands via speakerphone.
Trump seems to love the idea of outsiders listening in on conversations via speakerphone that they shouldn't be hearing. He infamously invites TV personalities like Lou Dobbs to listen in on conversations in the Oval Office—even "sensitive discussions."
But it's far worse than that. In June 2016—the *very month* he may have listened in by speakerphone to the Russia meeting at Trump Tower—a massive breaking-news report by Buzzfeed revealed Trump was *systematically eavesdropping on Mar-a-Lago calls*. Trump's obsession with accessing, electronically, *anything* in his perimeter that matters at *all* was further confirmed when his NYC campaign staffers—again, *around the time of the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting*—believed their offices were *bugged*.
It isn't just that Trump has eavesdropped on Trump Tower conference rooms, Mar-a-Lago, campaign staff—he's *so* obsessed with secret call surveillance he told Hugh Hewitt, "I assume when I pick up my telephone people are listening to my conversations."
Seen in this light, Trump's accusation that Obama had bugged Trump Tower was either a projection of his own fears *or* a projection of his own *designs*—given his staffers' claims he was bugging them and his clandestine monitoring of Trump Tower conference rooms this decade.
Now we take all that background—Trump eavesdropping on Trump Tower conference rooms, bugging Trump Tower staffers, listening in secretly on phone calls at Mar-a-Lago, and (I might add) being known for *secretly taping conversations like Cohen did*—and we apply it to June '16. 
Trump was—per his lawyer Cohen—heavily involved in *planning* the meeting. And he clearly was so excited about it he couldn't contain himself from *issuing a nationally televised statement* relating to the "dirt" he expected to get from it (his aborted "Clinton dirt" speech).
He knew when it was happening; he knew it'd been set up by his pals/business partners, so—given that and his "Clinton dirt" announcement—he'd reason to think the meeting would be fruitful; and he was spending that day *discussing that topic* with Manafort, Jared, and his son.
Trump knew from his son's communication with Goldstone—which Cohen says Trump knew about—that the Russians were on his side and wouldn't leak his electronic presence at the meeting. And he had sent (per Cohen, it would have to be "he sent") his three top campaign lieutenants.
In other words, Trump was that day in a space he owned/controlled just 20 yards from a meeting of utmost importance to him; the meeting was attended only by people whose discretion he trusted; and he had the technical means (*and* motive *and* inclination) to listen in on it.
And given that the sole business on Trump's agenda that day was to get dirt on Clinton and then craft it into a speech with the help of the three men he'd just sent to a meeting to get that dirt, the question an investigator would ask is, "Why *wouldn't* he have listened in?"
Trump is a notorious micro-manager, and would've been titillated at even indirect contact with the Kremlin—see his response to Papadopoulos announcing himself as a Kremlin intermediary back in March—so given his MO, the odds of electronic surveillance of the meeting are high.
The only people who'd know if Trump was on speakerphone that day are Russian agents (who wouldn't talk for fear of reprisal by Putin); Donald Trump Jr., who lied to Congress; Kushner, who lied to Congress; and Manafort, who NBC reports Trump says could "hurt him" if he flips.
Given Trump's penchant for burning bridges with people he needs—look at what he's done to Cohen—and given that Jr. has already showed he'll lie for his dad and Manafort will keep quiet due to other fears, the man Mueller is most likely to target for a flip is Jared Kushner.
And as if on cue, Trump recently seems to be testing out his bridge-burning with Kushner. A recent report says he "repeatedly" has said, in front of *many* people, that he'd prefer Tom Brady as a son-in-law to the one he got. ...
Mueller has ample circumstantial evidence to back up Cohen's claim Trump knew of the meeting. The problem: Mueller will want testimonial corroboration too—and he's aware that Cohen wasn't at the meeting himself. So he'll want Jared.
As this thread demonstrates, given Trump's history of eavesdropping at Trump Tower and elsewhere—and his lies about the meeting, which emphasize its importance—investigators *must* consider the *very* real chance that Trump attended this conspiratorial meeting via phone.

To be clear, this meeting was about colluding-- conspiring-- with a foreign hostile power to subvert the US electoral process and to get elected leader of a country and bend to the will of that foreign power. It's one of the deepest, most treasonous acts imaginable.

The fact that Republicans continue to cover for Trump despite his lies and clear guilt, suggest they are all under the influence of Russia too-- GOP traitors.  They ALL NEED TO GO TO JAIL.

All the chants of "lock her up" about Hillary were just deeply ironic projection, as these insane traitors need to be locked up for the rest of their lives.

Trump-Putin Treason Summit and Ultimate Truths

The collusion is clear and ongoing, as evidenced by the Trump-Putin press conference a few hours ago.

The collusion during the campaign is clear now too. This is just amazing: "Russian hackers went after Hillary Clinton's emails on the same day Trump publicly asked Russia to go after her emails."

Today's Trump - Putin summit was shocking, a complete disgrace. Trump caved to Putin in every possible way.

The US-Russia Summit was a "treason trap", and Trump moronically fell right into it. 

Why though?

Is it just because Trump is so amazingly insecure that he can't abide the thought that he didn't win the election fairly and that Putin helped-- even to the point of committing apparent treason?

Or is Trump being blackmailed by Putin, as the Steele Dossier suggests?

Does Trump just like breaking norms and rules -- being an entitled asshole and getting away with it-- because he knows the GOP won't do anything? Either way, no doubt, Trump is a psychopath, a deeply damaged person. 

Still, could there be another reason though that also fits with his psychopathy?

Sarah Kendzior wrote this back in 2017:

Back in late 2016, I wondered about a deep conspiracy behind Trump's election and postulated a Trump-Putin alliance may be part of a quarantine breakout attempt by the evil PTB. This "as-yet unknown shared enemies" in the quote above maybe the extra-terrestrial quarantiners, who are preventing the evil PTB from escaping the earth. 

Then there are a whole series of articles like this, about the super rich are itching to leave the earth behind and go to a new planet:

"What if the mega-rich just want rocket ships to escape the Earth they destroy?" and "Survival of the richest: The wealthy are plotting to leave us behind".

It's all too weird and deeply fucked up.

Too Much Shit Going Down

Sorry I haven't posted anything in a while.

There is just too much every fucking day with this fucking administration, and I don't want to simply rehash all the latest news here, I'd prefer to do some synthesis, even if it is minimal. Plus real life, etc.

Basically, the Trump administration is as much a massive dumpster fire as I expected, if not more.  Way more of the idiocy and lies of the Bush administration, and just as much of the cruelty and treason, even if it's less of the outright death and destruction.

Anyway, the main thing that fascinates me is Trump being a Russian agent, and goddamn if all the evidence doesn't point to that. Here's a great synthesis of that fact, by Jonathan Chait.

It does amaze me how blatant Trump is about trying to break up NATO and the EU. It's fucking bonkers.

And of course, there's the upcoming Trump-Putin summit, or basically where the handler gets a report from his asset. YES, it's FUCKING NUTS that Trump will meet Putin without any other people present or any official record. I mean, WTF!!!! Again, how much more blatant can you get?

The retirement of Anthony Kennedy allows Trump to swing the SCOTUS to the far right, which of course he has done, with his pick Bret Kavanaugh as replacement justice. This means corporate rule to the max and further gutting of women's, minorities' and worker's rights. Plus more damage to the environment, because that's how Republican psychopaths roll.

If you care about the environment, it's great that Pruitt is gone, but someone worse is in his place, of course.

And so on... there's just so much fucking awful crap going on.



Obviously Democrats aren't going to do everything we would like, in terms of fighting the evil PTB... but they are better than the current crop of GOP assholes and at least they will hold Trump accountable.


If you're so inclined and in a position to do so, there's also civil disobedience.
