Political maneuvering within the imperialist power structure is stupid and not funny or enjoyable to know about

because we have no russiagate thread I don't know who tf mueller or nunez or any of those people are and i love it

I meant a thread for peeling back the layers of horseshit and purely propangandistic value of the story... every other week there is another blatantly false WaPo or NYT article quoting complete fabrications from 'intelligence officials'. I figure that since some people here seemed to be techies that there would be some interesting insights on how cyberwarfare is actually waged, as well as how China and other states deal with U.S cyberwarfare

I also couldnt give a fuck about Mueller and his gaggle of pricks who built their careers blackmailing imams and spying on blacks giving proctologies to Trump campaign staffers, I dont know who nunez is either, im more interested in rhe geopolitical and imperialist propaganda story that is Russiagate

there was a really good post a year or so ago on how the initial hacking thing is based on a spurious jump to the most sensationalist conclusion possible by a scam artist security company (someone should link that,) and they tried to do the same thing in the wake of the french election and were told to go fuck themselves by actual professionals. kind of a solved problem, which is why discussion on the topic is mostly dead.

the investigations will continue to dig up details of the exact same kind of diplomatic backchannel realpolitik and deals that literally everyone everywhere is doing all the time, which isn't to say that it isn't shady scumbag shit, just that it isn't particularly exceptional. in that context going over every single minute detail that the news cycle tries to dramatize is like taking an exhaustive loss prevention inventory while the warehouse is on fire.

"save it lenny, i'm busy counting every individual match in these crates and comparing it to the shipping manifest, some motherfucker is skimming off the top and using them in his smoke breaks and i am going to catch that bastard if its the last thing i do. did you hear what the mueller investigation is doing this week? hey, do you smell smoke? i bet that's the thieving jerk now!"

Cuz there are like a handful of active threads on the site, and a very small userbase, so the options are to go hunt for threads with all these various topics and bring em back or to start with a topic that relates to all of them, namely the bipartisan support for imperialism and right-wing nature of both wings of the u.s gov, and so the AIPAC thing just felt timely

Also its kinda rare to hear one of those sleazy zionjsts straight up admit they support ethnicly cleansing palestinians because they dont believe that the torah says the land belongs to jews

What was initially funny and now painfully boring about the whole russiagate thing and the trump era in general is the cultural brain damage that's gripping liberals. Like a stroke victim who looks at family members and, robbed of context and familiarity, sees grotesque and incomprehensible shapes, liberals are now confused and terrified by every banal event.

Every week some media liberal latches on to a new Bad Thing Trump did, only to walk it back by the end of the day when they realize every prez for the last 30 years has done the same thing. With Russiagate, they look at the most minor and common forms external political influence--things that the US does to virtually every other country on earth, and that many other countries almost certainly do to one another on a regular basis--and see unprecedented acts of war. Organizing rallies, promoting news and opinion pieces favorable to their preferred candidate, it's all so mundane.

That's not to say a lot of the hysteria isn't cynical or that this sort of mass psychosis isn't dangerous, but goddamn it's tedious.

setting apart the security state and the more cynical hucksters, it's some sovereign citizen in tax court style shit. it's a quest for the news story that will finally win 2016 for Hillary, an extralegal magic word that will reveal the real world to have been the holodeck the whole time

I dont think ive ever come across the reddit front page without seeing at least three articles viewed by millions about the minutae of the Mueller investigation or an allegation from unnamed intelligence reporter that Russia hacked X. The past year of subpoenas issued to the biggest social media companies and funding of 'counter-propaganda campaigns' has for me in large part vindicated the banning and censorship of certain parts of internet by U.S rivals and victims. They may share some space with ISIS and hackers from "North Korea", but the internet is primarily a tool for capitalists and the imperialists.

The total of such candidates for the Democratic nomination in the 102 districts is 219. Each has a website that gives biographical details, which we have collected and reviewed for this report. It is notable that those candidates with a record in the military-intelligence apparatus, as well as civilian work for the State Department, Pentagon or National Security Council, do not hide their involvement, particularly in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. They clearly regard working as a CIA agent in Baghdad, an Army special ops assassin in Afghanistan, or a planner for drone missile warfare in the White House or Pentagon as a star on their résumé, rather than something to conceal.

One quarter of all the Democratic challengers in competitive House districts have military-intelligence, State Department or NSC backgrounds. This is by far the largest subcategory of Democratic candidates. National security operatives (57) outnumber state and local government officials (45), lawyers (34), corporate executives, businessmen and wealthy individuals (30) and other professionals (18) among the candidates for Democratic congressional nominations.

Of the 102 primary elections to choose the Democratic nominees in these competitive districts, 44 involve candidates with a military-intelligence or State Department background, with 11 districts having two such candidates, and one district having three. In the majority of contests, the military-intelligence candidates seem likely to win the Democratic nomination, and, if the Democrats win in the general election, would enter Congress as new members of the House of Representatives.


https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2018/03/08/dems-m08.html

Daniel Helmer, running in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District against five other well-financed candidates—including former State Department official Alison Friedman, who has already topped the $1 million mark—says remarkably little about what he did in Afghanistan and Iraq, although his photograph in military fatigues is on the front page of his website. But Helmer boasts perhaps the most extensive list of endorsements by retired national security officials of any candidate in the country, including eight generals and admirals, two former deputy directors of the CIA, Avril Haines and David Cohen, and Michele Flournoy, former under secretary of defense for policy. What he did to earn their support is left to the imagination.

Richard Ojeda, elected as a West Virginia state senator in 2016, is now seeking the Democratic nomination in the 3rd Congressional District, covering the southern third of the state. As the WSWS has reported, Ojeda has based his political career on more than two decades in the US Army Airborne, including repeated tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, where he reached the rank of major. His last post was as executive director of Army recruiting in Beckley, seeking to convince youth in West Virginia and Virginia to become cannon fodder for the Pentagon.

Josh Butner, running in the 50th District of California against Republican Duncan Hunter, Jr., “served for 23 years in the United States Navy where he saw multiple combat deployments, most recently in Iraq and Afghanistan.” The career Navy SEAL says almost nothing about what he actually did in the top military assassination unit, but that is to be expected. His campaign website features the slogan “Service, Country, Leadership,” alongside a photograph of Butner in desert fatigues.

Dan Feehan is running to succeed incumbent Democrat Tim Walz in the 1st Congressional District of Minnesota, after Walz announced his candidacy for governor of that state. From 2005 to 2009, according to his campaign biography, Feehan “served as an active duty soldier and completed two combat tours of duty as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom.” He then joined the Obama administration, first as a White House aide, then as an acting assistant secretary of defense in the Pentagon.

Andy Kim, running in the 3rd District of New Jersey, has actually raised more money than the incumbent Republican, Tom MacArthur. Kim worked at the Pentagon and as a strategic adviser to generals David Petraeus and John Allen while they were in command of US forces in Afghanistan. He then moved to the National Security Council, where he was Obama’s director for Iraq for two years.

Maura Sullivan, seeking the Democratic nomination in New Hampshire’s 2nd District, where incumbent Democrat Carol Shea-Porter is retiring, was a Marine Corps officer, rising to the rank of captain and deploying to Fallujah, Iraq, scene of some of the bloodiest battles and most horrific US war crimes of that war. She too joined the Obama administration as a civilian administrator at both the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Pentagon.

Jason Crow is running in Colorado’s 6th Congressional District against incumbent Republican Mike Coffman, where he was selected by the DCCC as one of its top candidates in the “Red-to-Blue” program. He is a veteran of the 82nd Airborne Division, leading a paratrooper platoon during the invasion of Iraq. He then joined the Army Rangers and served two tours in Afghanistan “as part of the Joint Special Operations Task Force,” where he rose to the rank of captain.

Matthew Morgan had a 20-year career in the Marine Corps “where I would deploy routinely overseas, culminating in several senior staff roles where I’d provide counsel to numerous military leaders, including the secretary of defense.” He did two tours in Iraq and also worked in counterterrorism on the Horn of Africa. Now he is the unopposed candidate for the Democratic nomination in Michigan’s 1st Congressional District, which has switched back and forth between the two big business parties and is currently held by first-term Republican Jack Bergman.
