When Russia downed MH17 over Ukraine, I thought surely that’s the West’s wake-up call to Putin’s shocking aggression. 4 yrs later, Russia uses the same playbook to avoid culpability—deny, lie & kick up the propaganda machine. Truth’s a great antidote👉NEW JIT investigation video
Netherlands, Australia Hold #Russia Responsible for 2014 Shooting Down of Malaysian Airliner #MH17, Killing All 298 Passengers. Russian response to indisputable evidence identifying 🇷🇺army, 🇷🇺missile & 🇷🇺soldiers? Same old denials & #disinformation. npr.org/sections/thetw…
Russia masked its invasion of Ukraine w/ propaganda about "separatists" & "civil war." Flight MH17–downed by Russian forces w/ Russian equipment–blew the lid off Russia's lies, I wrote in 2015. It took time, but the Kremlin's finally busted for its terror. eastwestblog.net/2015/07/18/rus…

What was the UN created for?
What was the United Nations charter created for?
What were human rights associations created for?
What was the International Criminal Court created for?

Enough of double standars and hypocrisy. Enough is enough.

(1) In my latest, I discuss how #Europe could be able to keep #Iran in the deal, and the #JCPOA alive. progressivepost.eu/what-it-will-t…
(2) #Europe must reject notion pushed by #Washington and its allies that being pro-JCPOA means being pro-Iran. Also, #Europe must reject narrative suggesting it puts wedge in transatlantic relations by trying to safeguard JCPOA.
(3) #Iran can be kept in the deal if its economic, political and security dividend makes it conclude it’s better off with the deal. While economic dividend is part of #JCPOA terms, and the other two aren’t, they will play a role in current situation.

1. Quite a statement coming from the "failing NYT": "Efforts by a hostile foreign power to influence an American presidential election — with or without the assistance or knowledge of the winning candidate — may well be a scandal “bigger than Watergate!” #CrossfireHurricane
2. In the UK, at a Cambridge University “Race To Change The World” conference, July 11-12, 2016, with Madeleine Albright at the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences, & Humanities (CRASSH), #StefanHalper approached Carter Page. bigleaguepolitics.com/exclusive-cart…
3. "To be clear, #CarterPage has always been open about the fact that he has never met Donald Trump." But the former FBI intel operator, Naval Academy graduate with background in Navy intel'd somehow been desgnated a Trump campaign adviser just a few months earlier.

THREAD: In summer 2016, George Nader (representing Saudi Arabia & UAE) and an Israeli specialist in "social media manipulation" offered to help **THROW THE ELECTION** in a meeting w/Trump Jr arranged by Erik Prince‼️ 1/

nytimes.com/2018/05/19/us/…
At the Aug'16 #treason meet, Nader told Jr the crown princes of #SaudiArabia & #UAE were "eager to help his father win." The Israeli social media expert's (Joel Zamel) firm had already drawn up a multimillion $ proposal for a social media manipulation effort to help Trump.🤨 2/
Zamel's social media company #Wikistrat, which employed several Israeli former intelligence officers, specialized in "collecting information & shaping opinion through social media."🤨

Gee, that sounds familiar‼️🤬 3/

As @ianbassin said on #inners there was a hearing yesterday which, "was the first time that Trump lawyers stood up in open court to answer questions about the #Russia conspiracy and amazingly the Trump legal team didn't push back very hard on the idea of a conspiracy." 1/
Yesterday in court #Trump lawyers, "..were essentially arguing that even if we did work with #Russia to dump these emails which were hacked, well that's just political activity and our First Amendment right to do so." #inners
on #Trump White House Counsel, "Trump may not care about tearing down the norms of our democracy, but surely some of these people do...Have these people no decency left? We're talking about Trump trying to out an informant that could endanger lives." #inners

#Total CEO Patrick Pouyanné: [#Trump's] announcement on #Iran clearly is pushing the price up. And I would not be surprised to see $100 per barrel in the coming months because, clearly, you will have some impacts. 
#Oil #IranDeal
csis.org/analysis/conve…
#Pouyanné: we know we are back to the situation we were before the 2016 agreement, and in the meantime #Iran has grown its exportation by 1 million barrel(s) per day. So this 1 million barrel(s) per day is in question today.
#IranDeal
#Total CEO Pouyanné: We have decided to look to that project in Iran because of the #JCPOA, which means end of secondary sanctions. As soon as the U.S. decide to put back in place the secondary sanctions, there is no possibility for us to be a major company, a global company.

The story gets VERY bizarre, VERY quickly.

According to the Daily Mail (so bear that in mind), Ice Cube (yes, the rapper) & his business partner (Jeff Kwatinetz) claim in a lawsuit that Bannon was the target of a bizarre #bribery plot by #Qatar.🤨 2/

dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5…
Ice Cube & Kwatinetz claim that a Qatari investor (Al-Rumaihi) in their BIG3 basketball league tried to get access to Bannon when he in the WH, and that Al-Rumaihi was a front for the Qatari government.

Kwatinetz & Bannon had worked together previously & remain 'friends.'🤔 3/

A THREAD ON #ISRAEL'S AIRSTRIKES IN #SYRIA. A relative of mine, who will remain nameless, is a source inside the Syrian Army. I recently spoke to him regarding the Israeli strikes. I told him that I did not believe #Russia would greenlight an Israeli strike of such magnitude...
I was told that #Putin, who many are saying gave #Netanyahu a "greenlight", did nothing of the sort. The Israelis were not given a greenlight by Putin, nor do they possess some magical airforce/bombs...rather, what they did was simplistic...and very stupid...
Russia and the U.S. have an understanding regarding the flight-paths of their fighter jets - they each have each other's unique transponder signals - the Israelis decided to fly into Syria, via Jordan, while transmitting a U.S. transponder signal.

Any answers as to why Hillary Clinton & SIX of her staff members were able to retain security clearances, including TS/SCI, during investigation & campaign giving them access to classified systems?
Why do they STILL hold clearance?
Why did the Obama admin refuse to respond to Grassleys request for answers for over two years? Why did John Kerry refuse to cooperate with requests for info?

#Syria launched 10s of missiles against 4 #Israel/I military objectives in the occupied #GolanHeight in response to continuous Israeli provocation of war (hitting Syrian & allies' targets in various locations).

#Israel/I jets violated #Lebanon airspace last night to bomb #Syria
#Israel continuous provocation to trigger another war in #Syria w/ #Iran has been met with Iranian refraining from retaliating coz it is due to the hosting country to respond.

#Russia is constantly asking #Damascus to avoid falling into Israel's trap

#Israel intercepted 4 out of 20 missiles launched by #Syria air defence system into occupied #GolanHeight. 16 missiles reached their targets according to Damascus.

#Israel, before the Syrian retaliation, bombed several targets in #Syria for the fourth time in less than a month.

#WhatHappened
🤔Interesting. While digging deeper into stolen laptop in March 2017 from a Secret Service (suspiciously the fmr ADA of EDNY w/ same name also lives in Brooklyn), I was reminded of 2015 "attempted" hack of Clinton Foundation. Follow along.
Transcripts released by #FBI show a Secret Service Agent assigned to Slick Willy was also doing work on Hillarys private server as well as Clinton Foundation. In 2015 he assisted the Foundation in a case related to theft of info on Foundation systems."
thenewamerican.com/tech/computers…
The Clintons & the Foundation itself were very secretive about this agents work on Clinton Foundation computer systems. They denied it had anything to do w/ Foundation even though in later testimony we find out that's a lie

🔥Trump asked #Russia🇷🇺to dig up dirt on Hillary Clinton and hired an Israeli spy firm to slime Obama aides who worked on the #Iran deal.🤨

It is ILLEGAL for campaigns to get donations (including free “in kind” services) or to pay FOREIGN entities‼️

theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/m…
⬛️BLACK CUBE⬛️

I wonder if the “Israeli spy firm” that Trump’s campaign allegedly hired (ILLEGALLY) was Black Cube, the same shady outfit hired by Robert Mercer and Harvey Weinstein to INTIMIDATE people‼️

Regardless of WHO paid — Trump himself (unlikely), his campaign (ILLEGAL), or the US government (#corruption) — if Trump really did attempt to hire FOREIGN intel-related operatives to **spy on US citizens**, this would be BEYOND Nixonian‼️

🔥A 2nd person "w/knowledge" of Barrack's interview said questioning was BROADER, including "financial matters" about the **campaign, transition & inauguration**.

As we keep saying, Mueller is FOLLOWING THE MONEY (ex: last night's Vekselberg story). 3/
