It’s been a while since we heard from Overseas reporter for Dispatches from the Asylum, Ms. Ukusi Menya, former counter espionage agent with TASS News Agency/Moscow, runner-up in Ms. Moscow Pageant, and part-time ballet instructor at Minsky’s Ballet Club. Let’s check in…
(Editors note: As always, we appreciate your patience with Ms. Menya’s English)
Comrades! As I sit sipping Vodka and Kombucha over ice rocks, being like warm blanket over body on cold Russian night, trying to sip with spareness so as not to gag with laughter from reading that US media is still witch hunting for Russian operatives in every nook and corner, I wonder has segment of America lost its collection of minds? This nonsense is still going on?
I read following and had to have another Vodka and Kombucha:
“Representative Eliot Engel, the senior Democrat on the U.S. House of Representatives foreign affairs committee, said that Tillerson was making a mistake by skipping the Brussels talks.
“Donald Trump’s Administration is making a grave error that will shake the confidence of America’s most important alliance and feed the concern that this Administration simply too cozy with (Russian President) Vladimir Putin,” Engel said in a written statement.
“I cannot fathom why the Administration would pursue this course except to signal a change in American foreign policy that draws our country away from western democracy’s most important institutions and aligns the United States more closely with the autocratic regime in the Kremlin,” he added.
A former U.S. official echoed the view.
“It feeds this narrative that somehow the Trump administration is playing footsie with Russia,” said the former U.S. official on condition of anonymity.”
God forbid that the current American Administration pursue different course than has been the path for the past 20 years or more of regime change and continual war. Can you imagine the horror of Secretary of State visiting another country? He might start conversation to prevent further horrors of war. This might stop further loss of life of Middle East families and children and young American soldiers. What gives? Perhaps globalists who presently rule America are having panic attacks anticipating guy with orange hair kicking them to curb where they will be left to play with imaginary dolls at local gulag, much like comrade Putin did when he rescued Mother Russia from the same globalist clutches that had death grip on the motherland.
But listen to these media dumbski’s in their “assessment” of trip
Any visit to Russia by a senior Trump administration official will be carefully scrutinized after the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Monday publicly confirmed his agency was investigating any collusion between the Russian government and Trump’s 2016 presidential election campaign.
Are you joshing me? Too many chemical engineering in your skies and genetically modified food affecting common sense thinking.
And then you have another truly deranged dumbski:
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) wants the Senate to delay a vote on President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick as long as Trump’s campaign remains under investigation by the FBI.
Democrats have struggled to come up with a cohesive strategy on how to handle the vote to confirm Neil Gorsuch, whom Trump picked in January to fill Justice Antonin Scalia’s vacant seat on the high court.
On Monday, FBI Director James Comey confirmed in his testimony to Congress that his agency is investigating ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
What is happening over there?
From Andrew Napolitano’s recent article on antiwar.com
Today the National Security Agency has 24/7 access to the mainframe computers of all telecom providers and all computer service providers and to all digital traffic carried by fiber optics in the U.S. The NSA has had this access pursuant to FISA court orders issued in 2005 and renewed every 90 days. The FISA court has based its rulings on its own essentially secret convoluted logic, never subjected to public scrutiny. That has resulted in the universal surveillance state in which we in America now live. The NSA has never denied this.
And then reading Paul Craig Roberts assessment of Mr. Napolitano’s article, makes one weep for what has become of America:
The ease with which the US government has been able to destroy the US Constitution in the 21st century illustrates the weakness of democracy. Unconcerned and unaware people are incapable of protecting their civil liberties. Habeas corpus, due process, and privacy have been erased. The only remaining protection is the Second Amendment, which cannot stand alone.
The peoples of the West have allowed themselves to be deceived by lies, misled by orchestrated “threats,” and distracted into irrelevant matters. Consequently, they have lost their liberty.
And they might lose their lives.
This is enough to make us reach for another Vodka and Kombucha over ice rocks and wonder how long before Americans start to defect to Russia to escape the lunacy, the tyranny, the criminality and surveillance state of what has become of America.
