There will never be true reform until law enforcement and prosecutors are held accountable for breaking the rules. Over 2,000 people have been exonerated from criminal convictions since 1989. But to blame mere incompetence or simple negligence would be a mistake. In the majority of these cases, it was criminal or unethical behavior by witnesses, law enforcement, and even the government that put these individuals behind bars in the first place.

Tony Kevin - The Maria Butina criminal investigation, cruel and futile as it has been, seems to be approaching resolution. I wrote in some detail in Off-Guardian on 29 July about the 15 July arrest by the FBI in Washington DC of a 29-year-old Russian national, a postgraduate student in Washington DC and gun enthusiast, Maria Butina. I was not expecting Maria Butina to be still languishing in solitary confinement in a high-security prison in Virginia awaiting trial as an agent of foreign influence, over four months later. Yet this is what has happened to this unfortunate young aspiring lobbyist for better US-Russian relations.

In order to protect himself from the military/security complex, President Trump has abandoned his intention of normalizing relations with Russia. Just as the neoconservative ideology needs US hegemony, the military/security complex needs an enemy to justify the $1,000 billion annual budget. The Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama regimes have crafted Russia into that enemy. Trump intended to change that, but he has been prevented. Russiagate is the orchestration used to force President Trump into submission.

The First Accusation, which is the source of the Magnitsky Act sanctions against Russia, was in 2012 under U.S. President Barack Obama, and it alleged that Sergei Magnitsky had been a whistleblower in Russia who was a lawyer who uncovered corruption in Russia’s Government and was imprisoned for that and beaten to death there for that. Magnitsky was, in fact, no whistleblower, and no lawyer, but the accountant of American billionaire Bill Browder, who had been charged by the Russian Government (and who then fled Russia) as having tax-defrauded the Russian Government of $230 million. And, Magnitsky’s death in prison was due to inadequate medical care of his pancreatitis by the medical personnel there, not (as Browder alleged) to any “beating.”

Une guerre civile pourrait-elle bientôt éclater aux États-Unis? Certains le pensent comme l`historien québécois Marc Simard, qui vient de publier un texte à ce sujet. Sputnik l`a rencontré. Mesurée et étayée, son analyse n`en est que plus inquiétante. Armes abondantes, divisions politiques, raciales et sociales forment un cocktail explosif.

If the US is indeed a `normal` country, there is a lot we can glean from that, including that a militaristic and bullying foreign policy, which regularly features bombings, invasions and the sponsorship of regime change operations around the world, is normal behavior. If this is normal, is Mike Pompeo suggesting that Iran should start invading its neighbors and engineering foreign coups?

La seule chose à laquelle puisse conduire une Chambre des représentants démocrate est un faible contre-pouvoir à quelques initiatives malheureuses de Donald Trump par effet de blocage. En effet, il existe de grandes tendances structurelles dans la politique étrangère américaine qui rendent difficiles des évolutions drastiques. L’énorme paquebot américain ne se manie par comme un frêle esquif. En un mot, pour conclure sur ce chapitre, le monde devra s’adapter à la diplomatie trumpienne et non le contraire, deux ans après sa prise de fonctions.

Die Deutsche Bank droht in den Vereinigten Staaten ins Zentrum umfassender parlamentarischer Ermittlungen zu geraten. Berichten zufolge wollen die US-Demokraten nach ihrem Erfolg bei der Wahl zum Repräsentantenhaus die Beziehungen zwischen US-Präsident Donald Trump, "der Deutschen Bank und Russland" untersuchen. Hintergrund sind die Geschäfte des Kreditinstituts mit Trump und seinem Clan.

Everyone knows America is bankrupt, $21 trillion in debt, adding a trillion a year to that figure under Trump’s voodoo economics. Yet, America is on not just a massive military buildup, but expanding its global military presence at levels not seen since the end of World War II. Is America controlled by an international cabal of “loan sharks?” Everyone knows America’s military is beaten, worn down, “in over its head” in Afghanistan, defeated time and time again every time America has entered a battlefield, every conflict since Korea and Vietnam.

"At least we can always go to Israel if there’s more anti-Semitism,” Liz Rose`s mother used to say, but as an anti-Zionist wrestling with the Pittsburgh massacre, she does not feel that way herself and is disturbed by the fact that she represents to other Jews what she is herself afraid of, more anti-Semitism.

To those who are politically and cynically aware, the October Surprise designation has become a misnomer. Instead, these predictable events should now be termed October Inevitabilities, or, even, October Hand-Writings-On-The-Wall.
17:11 [Zero Hedge] (E)
The outcome of the American midterm elections gives us an even more divided country, confirming that the United States is in the midst of a deep crisis within its establishment.
12:21 [Zero Hedge] (E)
As the wildfires ravaging Northern and Southern California destroy billions of dollars worth of real estate, President Trump reminded the world in a Saturday morning tweet that global warming - which many (on the left in particular) have blamed for the fires - isn`t the responsible for the fires.

After a Florida Judge ordered Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes to allow for the immediate inspection of tens of thousands of ballots suddenly found after Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson lost to Republican Gov. Rick Scott, Snipes failed to abide by a 7 PM deadline set at the emergency hearing. Instead, workers were filmed by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) shuffling boxes into a truck, before he was forcibly removed by a police officer.
12:03 [State of the Nation] (E)
Election Fraud Expert: Brenda Snipes Allowed Illegal Aliens and Felons to Vote; Illegally Destroyed Ballots. Three statewide races in Florida are headed to a recount and all depend on results from a county whose supervisor of elections has a history of losing ballots and breaking laws by allowing illegal immigrants and felons to vote, as well as illegally destroying ballots. Broward County supervisor of elections Brenda Snipes’ office has admitted “they don’t know” how many ballots there are still to count.

As a former Marine Corps officer with service during the Vietnam War, I still occasionally admit to having been a Marine, perhaps also with a measure of pride, Yet, I have realized that this admission encompasses more than the pomp and pageantry that we celebrate each year on November 10th. I realized what being a Marine actually entails, that as a young man I underwent, perhaps endured is better, a profound life-altering experience, Marine Boot Camp, during which everything I was, embraced, stood for, and held sacred, was brutally and methodically destroyed, with the resultant void filled with the values, “virtues,” and abilities appropriate to the role I was about to assume.

In so many ways, elections in America have become just another manifestation of bread and circuses; like watching a reality TV show when your house is on fire.

And so, with the midterm election in the rearview mirror, behold the rush into the next phase of Civil War 2. The Golden Golem of Greatness (aka, President Trump) finally requested the resignation of the feckless Attorney General, Mr. Sessions - a fine point as we shall see.
9:55 [Zero Hedge] (E)
Update: President Trump has escalated his voter fraud allegations with a double-tweet. After earlier mocking the Democrats and vote-count shenanigans: "You mean they are just now finding votes in Florida and Georgia – but the Election was on Tuesday? Let’s blame the Russians and demand an immediate apology from President Putin!"
9:54 [Zero Hedge] (E)
Just two days after President Trump ousted Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Politico is reporting that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross might be the next cabinet official to leave the administration as part of Trump`s widely expected cabinet reshuffle. Trump has reportedly grown frustrated with Ross over reports of his unsavory and ruthless business practices as well as his perceived ineptitude in negotiating trade deals.

Finally the mid-terms are behind us. There was no Blue Wave nor was there as I hoped, a Red Tide. There was, in fact, a split decision that leaves the country in a slightly better but still deeply divided state.

Un curieux et lourd déséquilibre s’est développé entre les trois grandes puissances internationales – les États-Unis, la Russie et la Chine. Au fur et à mesure que ces deux dernières se renforcent et, avec leurs voisins, s’unissent pour former un ensemble eurasien cohésif et coopératif, la première, plongée dans un bourbier qu’elle a elle-même créée, devient de plus en plus désespérée et commence à agir d’une manière qui est économiquement et militairement provocatrice, voire carrément auto-destructrice.

Robert Herbst writes, "If our new politicians can empathize not just with their own, but with all those who are marginalized because of their color, race, religion, national origin, gender and sexual orientation, here and abroad, the political gains in this election might indeed be good – for the Palestinians, for the Jews, and for all of us."

Keineswegs zufällig, mit gezielter Absicht. Donald Trump und die Medien, eine never ending story, die bisher kein US-Präsident derart harsch weiter vorantreibt wie jener Heißsporn, der keine Gelegenheit verstreichen läßt, seine Antipathie zum Ausdruck zu bringen wie der jüngste CNN-Eklat mit dem Reporter Jim Acosta, dem im Anschluß am öffentlichen Streit seitens des Weißen Hauses die Akkreditierung „bis auf Weiteres“ entzogen wurde.
10:25 [The American Conservative] (E)
The war in Washington will not end until the presidency of Donald Trump ends. Everyone seems to sense that now. This is a fight to the finish. A post-election truce that began with Trump congratulating House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi—“I give her a great deal of credit for what she’s done and what she’s accomplished”— was ancient history by nightfall.
10:21 [RT] (D)
Demokraten und Republikaner sind der Ansicht sie seien als Sieger aus den Halbzeitwahlen hervorgegangen. Das Ergebnis der "Midterms" ist weit weniger interessant, als der Umgang mit ihnen. Für die Wahrnehmung der Wahlergebnisse in der Bevölkerung sind vor allem die Medien verantwortlich
8:05 [Konjunktion] (D)
Die Midterm-Wahlen in den USA sind gelaufen. Die Hysterie in den deutschen Leitmedien ebbt langsam ab. Es bleibt der übliche Eindruck des Hauens und Stechens im medialen Zirkus zurück. Das falsche Rechts-Links-Paradigma wurde einmal mehr bis zum Exzess bedient.
8:04 [The American Conservative] (E)
In defending the Palestinians, candidates like Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez are grabbing the third rail. The domestic third rail of U.S. politics is still Social Security. It doesn’t matter that the program has become a Ponzi scheme, headed towards insolvency.
8:03 [Zero Hedge] (E)
Well, that escalated quickly. On Wednesday, President Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and by the end of the day major leftist organizations had already put together protests in 900 U.S. cities to make a “public demand for action to correct this injustice”.

"According to CNN, "all signs point to an investigation that is winding down."....Mueller has not provided any timeline for when he intends to complete his investigation, though we imagine "2024" would be about right, should Trump win the 2020 election.

A group of Antifa protesters which confronted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in a restaurant last month took to the residence of Tucker Carlson on Wednesday evening, ringing the doorbell of his upscale home while chanting: "Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!"

President Trump is “very seriously” considering whether to declassify a slew of FBI and Justice Department records related to the Russia investigation, he said Wednesday.
0:12 [Zero Hedge] (E)
Update (4:20 pm ET): Nancy Pelosi, the House Democratic leader, has chimed in with the most strident criticism yet of Trump`s decision to oust Sessions, claiming that the decision appears to be "a blatant attempt by Trump" to undermine Mueller. She added that Whitaker should recuse himself from the Mueller probe.
0:11 [Judicial Watch] (E)
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement in response to the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, bringing an end to his controversial tenure as the nation’s top law enforcement officer: I hope transparency and rooting out corruption and abuse becomes the focus of any new Attorney General. President Trump has been terribly victimized by Justice Department and FBI corruption. The Justice Department was a black hole in terms of transparency. It covered up institutional misconduct and, unbelievably, went out of its way to defend misconduct by Hillary Clinton and other Obama administration officials.

Actatorship does not represent the public but only the aristocracy that, behind the scenes, controls the government. Jonathan H. Adler, Professor at Case Western University School of Law, noted, regarding George W. Bush’s secret policy for the NSA to access everyone’s phone-records, that “The metadata collection program is constitutional (at least according to Judge Kavanaugh),” and he presented Judge Kavanaugh’s entire published opinion on that.

Es ist zu begrüßen, dass es bei den Zwischenwahlen in den USA mit Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar und Rashida Tlaib auf der demokratischen Spur drei expliziten Kritikerinnen des Apartheidregimes „Israel“ gelungen ist, in das Repräsentantenhaus einzuziehen, doch ist die Demokratische Partei damit keineswegs aus dem Würgegriff der zionistischen Mafia befreit.
19:22 [antikrieg.com] (D)
Anscheinend fühlten sich etwa 113 Millionen Amerikaner, im Wesentlichen die Hälfte der Wählerschaft, gezwungen, sich an den Halbzeitwahlen ("Midterms") zu beteiligen, was entweder durch intensiven Widerstand gegen oder Unterstützung für Donald Trump aufgepeppt wurde. Das ist viel mehr als üblich für eine Nicht-Präsidentschaftswahl, aber immer noch ziemlich erbärmlich für "die größte Demokratie der Welt".

Last night’s midterm elections saw a historic opening for critics of Israel. Three women stars of the Democratic Party who have openly criticized Israel’s human rights record were elected to Congress.
Those stars are Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from Queens/Bronx, Ilhan Omar from Keith Ellison’s former district in Minneapolis, and Rashida Tlaib from Detroit.

November 2, 2018 - Whether it is the polls done by the mainstream media (MSM) or the phony pipe bombs with no explosives sent to prominent Democrats, this election looks like one giant PSYOP. Democrats have no platform except open borders, pro-illegal immigration, cop hating and tax raising. You simply cannot run on that.
22:23 [SOTT] (E)
Trump has been so harassed by the Establishment that he is having trouble thinking straight. I never cease to be amazed at the insouciance of Americans. Readers send me emails asking why I ever supported Trump when he was the Establishment`s candidate. If Trump was the Establishment`s candidate, why has the Establishment spent two years trying to destroy him? The failure to put two and two together is extraordinary.
22:15 [Axios] (E)
Democrats have won control of the House, picking up at least 26 seats — they needed a net gain of 23 seats to win — and Republicans will maintain Senate control.
22:07 [The American Conservative] (E)
Trump and Pelosi both have reason to crow, which will only mean more acrimony to come.
22:05 [Zero Hedge] (E)
Nearly an hour after Fox News predicted the Democrats would regain the House, moments ago NBC confirmed as much, and called the House for the Democrats. As Bloomberg adds, the projections from NBC and Fox reflect good trends for Democrats in the recent calls: namely, that they`re continuing to flip the races where they were favored, and picked off the occasional toss-up. CNN is projecting that Democrats could win up to 35 seats.
21:58 [Tom Luongo] (E)
Tuesday’s mid-term elections will not be a turning point for the United States. That happened when we elected Donald Trump in 2016. The roots of Trump’s win were seeded back in 2008 with Ron Paul. And today the words I wrote then I think hold the key to understanding what is happening around the world today.

As Americans head out to cast their ballots in Tuesday`s midterm elections, reports have been rolling in across the country of broken voting machines, long wait times and incompetent poll workers....And in Pennsylvania, Twitter user @Carpedonktum was sent a video of a polling station with a "vote straight Democrat" sign posted on one of the doors.
13:38 [AntiWar.com] (E)
Mainstream media polls demonstrate that healthcare and immigration are the top concerns of both Democrat and Republican voters today; American militarism is hardly mentioned at all. The United States military is actively fighting in seven Muslim-majority countries; and no one cares. As Americans go to the polls today in a ritual pretense of democracy, they will vote for one of the two major political parties on issues ranging from healthcare to immigration to the basic personality of President Donald Trump.

...The paragraph above captures everything that has happened, is happening, and will happen during this Fourth Turning. It was written over two decades ago, but no one can deny its accuracy regarding our present situation. The spark was a financial crash. The response to the financial crash by the financial and governmental entities, along with their Deep State co-conspirators who created the financial collapse due to their greed and malfeasance, led to the incomprehensible election of Donald Trump, as the deplorables in flyover country evoked revenge upon the corrupt establishment.

What in the world has happened to our country? Most of us have very fond memories from when we were younger, and it is true that often our memories of “the good old days” can leave out the bad parts. None of us are perfect individually, and America has certainly never been without major problems as a nation. But have we ever witnessed the level of social decay that we are seeing around the country today?
13:29 [Zero Hedge] (E)
Tensions are incredibly high in the United States right now. I realized that over the past three years, I’ve written that they’re “at an all-time high” far too many times. So, I’ll just say, they’re high enough that all hell could break loose at any moment given the right (wrong) application of fuel to the flame. The number one thing you can do for this situation to keep your family safe is to be prepared for lockdown.

After three attempts at litigation, pro-Israel lawfare strategists have failed to silence a Palestinian American professor at San Francisco State University.
On Monday, a federal judge in San Francisco finally dismissed a frivolous lawsuit against professor Rabab Abdulhadi and the university over her Palestine research and criticisms of Israel, which was filed as part of a years-long targeted bullying campaign intended to censor and threaten professors and students who advocate for Palestinian rights.

Oceania Is At War With Fascism - If you’re a critic of global capitalism (sometimes referred to as “globalism”), I’ve got some good news and some bad news for you. The good news is, you’re not a “peddler of Russian propaganda” anymore. The bad news is, you’re an anti-Semite. You’re probably also a domestic terrorist, or an “emboldener” of domestic terrorism, or at least some sort of terrorism-apologist. And not good old-fashioned Islamic terrorism like we used to get during the War on Terror, because that ended in the Summer of 2016, right around the time Trump won the nomination. No, the brand of terrorism you are probably emboldening by criticizing global capitalism is anti-Semitic, fascist terrorism... the most terroristic form of terrorism there is!

“This is the third time in the last few months that a federal court has struck down as unconstitutional all or parts of a law that California designed to frustrate federal law.

Für die Mehrheit der deutschen Linken ist Bernie Sanders noch immer der Kandidat, der es wagt, das Establishment herauszufordern. Der moderne Mythos, der den Senator von Vermont umgibt, brachte Sahra Wagenknecht vor kurzem dazu, sich einen wie ihn an die Spitze der SPD zu wünschen. Er unterstützt Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, die neue sozialistische Hoffnung vieler Demokraten, und seiner Initiative ist es zu verdanken, dass Amazon für seine US-amerikanischen und englischen Angestellten einen erhöhten Mindestlohn einführte. Aber hält der Sanders-Mythos auch dem unerbittlichen Blick eines Journalisten wie Chris Hedges stand, der in der Machtanalyse geübt ist wie nur wenige andere?

I was hesitant to write on the subject while the Pittsburgh dead weren’t buried yet. I know, it is not a valid consideration for the militant pundits. The US Jews accused President Trump and the Israeli Jews blamed Palestinians for the shooting as on the cue before the victims were declared dead. However, you can’t talk sense before the dead are laid to rest. Now we can deliberate on guilt and blame.

A Kentucky woman who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of rape has been referred to the Department of Justice after she admitted that she lied. The woman, Judy Munro-Leighton, took credit for contacting the office of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as "Jane Doe" from Oceanside, California. Jane Doe claimed - without naming a time or place - that Kavanaugh and a friend raped her "several times each" in the backseat of a car. Harris referred the letter to the committee for investigation.

In den USA gilt das Mehrheitswahlrecht. Ein System, in dem sich die immer gleichen zwei Parteien an der Regierung abwechseln.

The Wall Street Journal`s Kim Strassel is at it again. In a Thursday Op-Ed, she describes how Democrats, over the course of six weeks, turned a "blue wave" of momentum into an absurd circus over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh - tainting all of the 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls except Joe Biden. "Democrats obliterated their own breaker in the space of two weeks with the ambush of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh," Strassel writes, displaying some of the "vilest political tactics ever seen in Washington, with no regard for who or what they damaged or destroyed along the way."

In vier Tagen, am kommenden Dienstag, sind Wahlen in den USA: das gesamte Repräsentantenhaus und ein Teil des Senats werden neu gewählt.
Donald Trump hat die Wahlen zur Chefsache gemacht: die Wähler sollen nicht nur die Abgeordneten wählen, sondern damit gleichzeitig auch über ihn abstimmen, eine kleine “Präsidentschaftswahl” sozusagen: Trump 2.0, denn er fürchtet eine Mehrheit der Demokraten im Repräsentantenhaus, die ein Absetzungsverfahren gegen ihn in Gang bringen könnten

The National and International Implications of this American Political Finding....Throughout the world, the public’s enemy is the aristocracy (and its hired agents). Where such an enemy controls the government, it’s a fascist regime. Any country that’s controlled by them is a dictatorship, not a democracy, and therefore war-profiteers end up controlling the government; and this is America’s (and the world’s) biggest problem....Democratic Party voters did not reject Democratic Senators who had voted for it — not even ones like Clinton who continued supporting a fascist invasion. Therefore, the Party’s voters accepted fascism and fascists. Democratic Party voters, like Republican Party voters, accept being lied-to — even lied into a war (like had happened to Germans, under Hitler).

The Black Alliance for Peace (BAP) has launched U.S. Out of Africa!: Shut Down AFRICOM, a campaign designed to end the U.S. invasion and occupation of Africa. Today marks the 10th anniversary of the establishment of AFRICOM, short for U.S. Africa Command. Although U.S. leaders say AFRICOM is “fighting terrorism” on the continent, we believe geopolitical competition with China is the real reason behind AFRICOM’s existence. AFRICOM is a dangerous structure that has only increased militarism.

Two recent stories about Russians have demonstrated how the news is selected and manipulated in the United States.The first is about Maria Butina, who apparently sought to overthrow American democracy, such as it is, by obtaining a life membership in the National Rifle Association. Maria, a graduate student at American University, is now in detention in a federal prison, having been charged with collusion and failure to register as an agent of the Russian Federation. She has been in prison since July, for most of the time in solitary confinement, and has not been granted bail because, as a Russian citizen, she is considered to be a “flight risk.”

Während des US-Wahlkampfes hat sich Donald Trump durch drei Dinge hervorgetan: das Streben nach normalisierten Russland-Beziehungen, den Ruf nach einer Stärkung des amerikanischen Arbeitsmarktes und die direkte Adressierung des amerikanischen Volkes. Wie Paul Craig Roberts erkennt, hat er sich damit die herrschende Elite zum Feind gemacht. Während diese ihn stetig weiter von seinen Zielen forttreibt, verlieren die USA immer mehr an Einfluss und Anerkennung. Oder ist es in Wahrheit etwa so, dass Trump auf seinem verlorenen Posten die einstige Weltmacht absichtlich demoliert?

While the new US anti-terrorist strategy doesn’t change much in terms of the fight itself, it operates a profound modification of the working rules of the Pentagon and the Secretariat of Homeland Security. It is not so much a rationalisation of what has been developed since 2001, but more a redefinition of the missions of the federal State. 4 October 2018, the White House published the new « National Strategy for Counterterrorism » . This document is presented as a split from what has been achieved so far in the matter – the last text, dating from the Obama administration, was published in 2011. In reality, this is a compromise between President Trump and the Pentagon.
