1. Never mind Navalny, Germany won’t get tough with Russia

BERLIN — Alexei Navalny’s family might be counting on Germans to save the Russian opposition leader’s life. But if they’re expecting justice, they’ve come to the wrong place.
As Navalny lay in a coma at Berlin’s Charité hospital on Friday, Angela Merkel held court in front of the press corps just around the corner, reflecting on her strategy toward Russia over the years.
“I don’t think we need to change the policy on Russia,” the German leader said. “This is something we see as a continuous line.”
Critics of the chancellor say that continuity is exactly the problem. In the face of countless Russian aggressions in recent years — from the annexation of Crimea to the assassination of a Chechen rebel in broad daylight in central Berlin — Merkel has stressed time and again the importance of engaging Vladimir Putin in “dialogue.” She repeated the argument during her press conference on Friday.
“We must continue to talk with Russia,” she insisted.
2. “Biggest Scandal in Europe since WWII” – Ibizagate: How Soros Journalists Brought Down the Austrian Government
August 23, 2020
A year ago, a leaked video which seemed to show the head of the right-wing Austrian Freedom Party Heinz Christian Strache conspiring with Russians to take over the top local tabloid brought down the center-right government. In the court case, video has emerged exonerating Strache and his colleague Johann Gudenus. Apparently, the Soros-related “journalists” who broke the story deliberately omitted the exonerating parts.
It was a set-up straight out of the 1970s “Mission Impossible” series: In 2016-17, the right-wing Austrian Freedom Party was leading the polls in Austria on the back of their opposition to Angela Merkel’s illegal Open Borders policy for all of Europe. In a scenario echoing the Fusion GPS “Trump Tower Meeting”, charismatic party head Strache and the equally popular Ex-Youth Wing head Gudenus were lured to a villa on the trendy island of Ibiza, Spain with Gudenus’ wife to meet with the alleged niece of a Russian oligarch going by the name of Alyona Makarova, who was promising investments in Austrian media in return for lucrative government contracts. “Makarova” has since disappeared and is wanted for questioning by the Austrian police.
The meeting turned out to have been a sting staged with intel know-how and equipment by unknown actors. The villa was fully wired for audio and video,
These passages, which would seem to completely exonerate Strache and Gudenus, were apparently deliberately omitted from the video released by German news outlets Süddeutsche Zeitung and Spiegel. Süddeutsche journalists Frederik Obermaier and Bastian Obermayer are members of the “International Consortium of Investigative Journalists” (ICIJ), which is one-third funded by George Soros’ Open Society. Austrian Journalist Florian Klenk, who broke the story in left-wing Austrian Falter, also worked for ICIJ in 2016.
“This is looking like the greatest media scandal in post-war Europe,” German politician Petr Bystron (AfD) said, an early ally of Strache and Gudenus. “Using manipulated video, a popular and successful Austrian government was ousted by foreign involvement, using illegal taped and released material. Heinz Christian Strache and Johann Gudenus were deliberately framed in a deceit attempt to get them to agree to criminal collusion. Even though they adamantly refused, two years later the Spiegel and Süddeutsche released misleading videos to make them appear corrupt. This is clear interference in Austrian politics by German media with the aim of overthrowing the elected government. We’ve not seen anything like this in Western Europe since 1945.”
After the Russia collusion hoax, Soros-linked prosecutors and their media lackeys have gone after conservative leaders like Matteo Salvini in Italy, Viktor Orbán in Hungary, the PiS Party in Poland, Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel and Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil with politically motivated “lawfare” cases, as Gateway Pundit has reported. In February, US conservative Jay Sekulow’s European Center for Law and Justice (ECLJ) in Strasbourg revealed that at least 22 of 100 judges who have served on the European Court of Human Rights since 2009 are former staff or leaders of Soros NGOs.
3. The Enemy Within: A Story of the Purge of American Intelligence
“Western Europe has only 20 to 30 more years of democracy left in it; after that, it will slide, engineless and rudderless, under the surrounding sea of dictatorship, and whether the dictation comes from a politburo or a junta wil not make that much difference.”
Willy Brandt (German Federal Chancellor, right before he stepped down in 1974)
Believe it or not, but the dystopic view that democracy is dead is by no measure a new idea. However, what might disturb you is where this design, in its contemporary form, really germinated from.
The idea that democracy is in a crisis and needs to be replaced with a new form of “governance” did not originate from the outcries of an oppressed people demanding their rights to a decent life. We are not presently seeing an organic, grassroots process in reforming how government, that is, democracy will be “improved” upon. Rather, what we are seeing is a controlled disintegration of the very thing we think we are trying to uphold, and this destruction has been in the works for over 45 years.
It is no coincidence that Samuel P. Huntington is very fond of the Willy Brandt quote “prophesizing” the end of democracy (which was used at the beginning of both his books ‘The Crisis of Democracy’ and ‘Disaffected Democracies’), that is after all his purpose in life…to see to it that that prophecy comes true.
In this paper, I will go through how the Henry Kissinger crew successfully purged the last significant remnants of decency within the CIA and reshaped the government structure into the Deep State that we see it grotesquely throbbing as today. In this story, we will see how those prominent figureheads who prophesize the “end of democracy” have been the very orchestrators of its destruction.
