Portrait of a Patriot.

By Mike Cunningham On August 11th, 2017


I had never read anything published by The Nation until this morning, but I will keep it on my reading list from now on, liberal and left-leaning though it may be. It has just published an article which might be THE most single important document, discussing THE most important letter, during the whole period from when Donald Trump first registered his intent to to run for the Presidency; to the empaneling of the Grand Jury which is supposed to investigate ‘Russiagate’.


I made specific reference to the publication of the Letter to the President within my post ‘Decisions, decisions’, and no one seems to have even digested that Letter. But now, prompted by Breitbart’s link, I went to The Nation, and there to read an explosive piece of journalism, from a writer named Patrick Lawrence, who writes and comments upon the whole saga of the alleged ‘hack’ of the DNC server; of the lies, assumptions, false briefings and downright skullduggery which has been brought to bear on the Trump Presidency, and the Trump Administration.


Mr. Lawrence states, quite categorically, that ALL the statements, all the assumptions, indeed all the allegations, stem from a statement that the data was ‘assessed’ by experts. That ‘assessment’ was never checked, and grew to ‘possibilities’ and so on; until President Trump was forced to sign a sanctions Bill which crippled his ability to negotiate with Russia.

Read Mr. Lawrence’s work, and then make your own minds up whether his words, and the work of many people who prefer to remain anonymous, are the proof that Russia never came near the DNC server, and all of the allegations; of corruption, indeed of treason, are baseless, groundless, and have been shown to be a pack of lies!

  1. Mike the Left in America long ago lost interest in Truth all the care about is dogma. Even with one of their own writing in one of their favored journals it will mean and does mean nothing.

    Hillary Clinton lost because Trump colluded with Russia, period stop end of story.

    They have no platform, their base are the commie radicals of american society combined with anyone who feels hostile because they are different.

    The only reason they will not be quelled is because the Republican Establishment is stupid and is controlled by scumbag grifters that should have been thrown out of office long ago.

  2. Hillary Clinton lost because Trump colluded with Russia

    I don’t know about ‘the left’ (whatever that is) in America Troll but has anyone here on ATW, American or otherwise, actually made that claim?

  3. I have printed the Nation article, and will read it later today.

  4. Paul

    No one here, and no one that I know has made that claim.

    This is just regurgitated bejaberring from the talk radio screamers.

  5. “numerous people around him stand accused of various corruptions and extensive collusion with Russians.”

    “Possibilities became allegations, …and these evolved into what are now taken to be established truths.”

    When you read stuff like that, you know that the author has as little regard for truth as Trump does and is just another partisan in the mad rush to divert blame.

    First, nobody is as yet “accused of extensive collusion with Russians”, and nobody involved in the investigations, or the serious press, claims that there are “established truths” regarding any collusion.

    Then, after he has put up these straw men, he comes up with what he things is his checkmate move: but no proof has been provided.

    Yes, yes, we know that, dummie. That’s why there are investigations going on.

    Also, just because there may have been no hack but only an inside leak does not mean that no crime was committed or that Russia was innocent. There was also no Russian “hack” of US nuclear technology in the 1940s; the info was provided by insiders like the Rosenbergs as Moscow’s behest.
    The alleged Russian involvement is that they provided the info on HC in an attempt to influence the election last November.

    There are of course other allegations that are currently the subject of investigations, relating to finance and lobbying etc.
    The Trump administration has lied and dallied about this from day 1. Apart from the clear statements by the FBI, CIA, NSA etc, it’s the behaviour of Trump and his gang that suggests most strongly that they were not unaware of certain shenanigans with Russia.

  6. The Nation is a serious, credible, well left of center publication

    But I do note that one of their senior writers is Professor Cohen, who is always a good listen but who is a Russia apologist. And this article basically lets Russia off the hook for everything.


  7. Liberal and left-leaning though it may be. It has just published an article which might be THE most single important document, discussing THE most important letter, during the whole period from when Donald Trump first registered his intent to to run for the Presidency

    That’ll be the Deep State lefty media ally then.

  8. How exactly did Russia supposedly influence the US election?

    As for Paul’s ‘mythical’ Deep State, it’s perfectly explicable:

    Paul McMahon, on August 8th, 2017 at 4:48 PM Said:

    ‘Deep State’ ‘Fake News’ ‘Alternate Facts’ ‘The Establishment’ ‘Globalists’ all seem to be central non specific staples of the Trump administration political lexicon.

    That there is an ‘Establishment’ and that there are ‘globalists’ is surely confirmed by all including those who are members of the Establishment and globalists themselves. Taking the US, what would be the Establishment? I’d start with organisations like the Council on Foreign Relations:


    The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), founded in 1921, is a United States nonprofit think tank specializing in U.S. foreign policy and international affairs. It is headquartered in New York City, with an additional office in Washington, D.C. Its membership, which numbers 4,900, has included senior politicians, more than a dozen secretaries of state, CIA directors, bankers, lawyers, professors, and senior media figures.

    Yes, that looks like it meets the criteria for ‘Establishment’ – see pictorial representation below:


    How about ‘globalists’?

    Clearly globalists would include anybody in the CFR in the US, but there are many in the UK and Europe who are globalists, as opposed to nationalists, the latter being those who believe in the nation-state. Below is a globalist:


    The EU should “do its best to undermine” the “homogeneity” of its member states, the UN’s special representative for migration has said.

    Peter Sutherland told peers the future prosperity of many EU states depended on them becoming multicultural.

    He also suggested the UK government’s immigration policy had no basis in international law.

    He was being quizzed by the Lords EU home affairs sub-committee which is investigating global migration.

    Mr Sutherland, who is non-executive chairman of Goldman Sachs International and a former chairman of oil giant BP, heads the Global Forum on Migration and Development , which brings together representatives of 160 nations to share policy ideas.

    In government and all levers of power and influence, people like Peter Sutherland prevail entirely. Anybody who disagrees is ‘googled’.

    ‘Alternate facts’ would be facts either not reported or skewed by the media organisations controlled by globalists because such facts would be detrimental to their agenda, current examples being the ‘benefits’ of 3rd-world invasion though the most egregious are 9/11, Iraq, Syria etc.

    The ‘deep state’? take a look at the first two links. That is the ‘deep state’

  9. ‘Theororists’ such as you love the ‘Deep State’ Allan. It adds another delicious realm to your paranoid persecution complex.
