The danger of Russiagate is not just in the threat it’s creating of war with a nuclear superpower, or in the McCarthyite political climate it’s created. It’s in the fact that every moment we focus on the Russia narrative, we aren’t focusing on taking the actions to prevent catastrophe for the species.

WikiLeaks has never had to retract a piece of information it’s published in its twelve years of being in operation. It has never hacked into the information of any institution or individual, since its purpose is to publish information that outside whistleblowers have leaked. It has consistently published leaks on the overreach of Trump’s CIA and of the Russian government’s spying practices, and Julian Assange hopes to publish Trump’s tax returns. And even Obama has admitted that there’s no proof Assange is working for Russia.

2016 showed us exactly how, where, and when the forces of corporate tyranny are able to sabotage disfavored candidates. Likely Bernie Sanders voters were purged in Arizona, New York, California, and other key states in the Democratic primary. Mathematically impossible exit poll discrepancies happened in many states, all of them in Hillary Clinton’s favor. Voter registration problems, closed polling places, lost ballots, and other issues happened in numerous contests. And it was all buried by the media and the government with Orwellian success.

Given the behavior of the U.S. government in not just the last year, but in the last two hundred years, a false flag event is coming. The government used the explosion of the USS Maine in 1898, which newspapers blamed on Spain without evidence, to start the Spanish-American war. The government used the 1964 Gulf of Tonkin attack, which the U.S. brought upon by firing at Vietnamese boats without provocation, to start the Vietnam War. In 1990 the government used a false testimony alleging Iraqi atrocities to create support for the Persion Gulf War. In this moment of multiple U.S. war runup campaigns, it’s the rational choice to think another false flag is imminent.

The important story is not about Russiagate, or about the president’s lurid affairs, or about the other media sensations we’re constantly bombarded with. The story is about a bipartisan, all-encompassing effort by the U.S./NATO power establishment (along with their parallels in Russia and China, the two other superstates) to make society ever more repressive and militarized.

Our most urgent task right now is stopping the U.S./NATO military powers from destroying the world before they fade from relevance. These forces are using escalated military aggressions to compensate for the collapse of the U.S. empire, a situation that puts us under maybe the greatest nuclear threat in history. The bloodshed from America’s existing war escalations can’t be undone, with drone strike deaths having gone up 200% in just the last year. But a global catastrophe can be avoided if we stop the empire’s plans for new conflicts.

There’s a reason behind the establishment’s worldwide war against dissent. There’s a reason for the censorship from governments and corporations, and for the mainstream media campaign to delegitimize dissenters as Russian agents, and for the aggressive attacks against those who’ve questioned the current war narratives. This reason can’t be spoken of outside the private meeting rooms of the oligarchy, since it turns over the entire global power dynamic.

Don’t believe the claims from Donald Trump and his apologists that these immigration measures are “sensible.” All they are is senseless attacks against vulnerable people. Innocent families are being upended because the parents haven’t been able to fulfil the absurdly hard path to U.S. citizenship. People who’ve lived in the U.S. since childhood are being deported to countries they’ve never known. Families might soon be separated to “end chain migration,” whatever Trump means by that. Muslim and Hispanic people, regardless of their immigration status, are living in fear of being detained under the “papers, please” climate that’s emerged in immigration enforcement. Then there’s the increased threats of hate crimes and discriminatory travel bans that Muslims now live under, and the heightened threats to the Black community amid the drug war escalations and increases in police violence of recent months.

By Accusing Their Opponents Of Being Russian Agents, Establishment Dems Are Making Discourse Totalitarian
The paradigm of McCarthyism the establishment has created reflects how an entrenched system reacts to its own demise. As objections to the status quo mount, and as the ruling class loses control, dissent becomes less and less tolerated. At this point, the struggle between ideologies has heightened so much that almost no one can publicly voice dissenting views without being accused of working for Russia.
