Can Donald Trump be stopped
from getting inaugurated ?

True or Fake News?
Fabricated Reports
on Donald Trump?

The question is: Why should the CIA, the secret service, make compromising information available about Donald Trump when he traveled to Russia in 2013? Who is behind this action, which group let the leaking of this information to the press, to Buzzfeed occur?

Who did collect this information? Christopher Steele, a former intelligence officer of the British Secret Service MI6.

Who ordered the investigation? Republican opponents of Mr. Trump and most certainly the Democrats. The obvious purpose: the elimination of Mr. Donald Trump 45th President of the United States because he is said having good relations with Vladimir Putin.

What was the information? Donald Trump allegedly hired prostitues to entertain him when he was staying in a hotel in Moscow in 2013, in the same room - it is said - where Barack and Michelle Obama had stayed before.

Reference: The Independant

What would normally be done with compromising material or kompromat as the Russians call it? Would it be in the interest of the USA to protect the president-elect (and also the people) to leak news and information that is probably fake or incorrect, information that is known by the secret service CIA?

In normal times reports would be labeled TOP SECRET and locked up in a safe. But we are living in extraordinary times in which the individual integrity of a person is measured by emotional left wing criteria opposed to realistic sober thinking based on verified facts. We live in times in wich the world has to learn how to use and rule the possibilities of the internet, in a world that is in the midst of a revolution, a clash of a variety of cultures, modern ones and cultures that have not shaken off part of their ancient customs.

Obama's policy was to reorganize the Middle East while at the same time giving Islam unprecedented support. The rebels of Lybia fighting the regime of their leader Muammar Gaddafi received support. On top of that Libya was to be bombed in order to get rid of Muammar Gaddafi more efficiently, thus opening up the fields with high grade oil.

For Egypt the plan was that Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood who was elected new president of Egypt should be supported. But Morsi - who received weapons and fighter jets from the US government to establish himself - was put under arrest by General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi who would not allow that his country was catapulted back into the middle ages, the era when Muhammad founded the religion of Islam. Now after a new election el-Sisi has become Egypt's president who wants to bring Egypt forward to make the country great again. Egypt was a great country, a great culture, not only many centuries ago.

Then there is Obama's aim to reposition Iran (predominantly Shia) as a force to counter the influence of Saudi-Arabia (predominantly Sunni). This means that Saoudi-Arabia is in fact an ingredient of Obama's Iran Deal.

The rebels in Syria who did not surf on the Arab Spring but only later started fighting Bashar al-Assad - an alewite and leader of semi secular Syria - would be supported too. But unfortunately this support led to the founding and rise of Isis and its atrocities.

Another aspect of the policy is that the importance of Israel and the need for an enduring peace shall be negated or at least put low on the scale of important and urgent matters.

What is true?
If Arab countries would not have
the oil in the ground, Islam would have been eradicated already a long time ago.
Or would it have reformed itself in
a most natural way?

The second part of Obama's policy is to demonize Russia. Vladimir Putin who - in the view of many people rightfully - annexed the Crimea, supposedly supported the rebels in East Ukraine, is to be compared to Adolf Hitler. When Hillary Clinton was invited on German television in 2013 at the occasion of the publication in Germany of her memoir "Hard Choices", the first words she said into the microphone, when seated in front of the camera were "Putin is Hitler", thus emphasizing the standpoint of the US, NATO and the European Union. Since the EU takes part in the above described policies. Every politician who is realistic about relations with Russia and every politician who is critical of Islam is being labeled as "populist". (By the way, the sanctions imposed on Russia have cost the European Union some 17.5 billion Euros so far.)

Regarding the necessecity to have better relations with Russia, it suffice to view the excellent and clever speeches of Sarah Wagenknecht of the German political party "Die Linke" in the German Parliament (Bundestag) where she dissects the policies of Angela Merkel and her government. Remember, when Bundeskanzler Gerhard Schröder and President Jacques Chirac questioned the validity of the invasion and war in Iraq to be undertaken by George W. Bush and Tony Blair and did not join the operation, Angela Merkel took a plane to Washington to pay her respects to George W. Bush telling him that she did not agree with Gerhard Schröder's point of view and she herself endorsed the war in Iraq.

And remember, as far as the hacking of emails is concerned, there is of course the uncovered presence in Berlin of the NSA making it possible for Barack Obama to read all of Angela's email messages on a daily basis during the 8 years of his tenure. And not only her emails and of officials, but also important documents of the Federal Government. But hardly anybody wrote about it.

===========================================

If you do understand German, here are links to two of Sarah Wagenknecht's speeches in the German Parliament (Bundestag in Berlin).

===========================================

During the years Chancellor Angela Merkel (Germany) and Justin Trudeau (Canada) have been the outstanding allies of Obama. Hillary Clinton - in case she would have been elected - would have meant the continuation of these policies. To many the election of Donald Trump is unexpected and damaging the political achievements of Barack Obama and the influence of advisors operating in secrecy in the background. Hence the defamation of Donald Trump.

And Trump (and we of course) are not yet safe. A lot of things still can happen in the 5 days leading up to the inauguration.

There is an interesting article about various aspects and options regarding a president-elect's position and a possible ousting. They are outlined on Lawnewz

The article is written by Ronn Blitzer and was published on October 28th, 2016. The author deals with the legal position of Hillary Clinton as presidential candidate. Well, it is easy to change the name to Donald Trump. I quote 4 paragraphs from that article:

- 1 -
"Should Clinton be indicted and convicted prior to her inauguration, and end up in jail, she may be deemed incapacitated, in which case Section 3 of the 20th Amendment kicks in and the Vice President-Elect, in this case Tim Kaine, would become President.

Replace Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine by Donald Trump and Mike Pence.

- 2 -
"Could Clinton be indicted when she becomes President? The law is unsettled when it comes to this situation, but most opinions tend to believe Clinton would luck out, due to the philosophy that Presidents - and only Presidents - are immune from prosecution while in office."

- 3 -
"So, what about impeachment? Pretty clear here. The House of Representatives determined in 1873 that Presidents cannot be impeached for offenses they committed before they took office. Since the conduct would have taken place prior to her becoming President, she couldn't be impeached for it."

- 4 -
"Should Clinton be indicted and convicted prior to her inauguration, and end up in jail, she may be deemed incapacitated, in which case Section 3 of the 20th Amendment kicks in and the Vice President-Elect, in this case Tim Kaine, would become President."

Again substitute Clinton and Kane for Trump and Pence. So if Trump will be indicted before and convicted before January 20, 2017, then automatically Mike Pence will be the 54th (or 55th ?) President of the United States. And what will the manipulators have achieved? What do we know about Mike Pence?

There is one more important aspect and that is immunity, Ron Blitzer says. Once a president-elect is inaugurated and officially president, he has immunity for actions undertaken and deeds done before he became president.

Now there still remains the question of fabrication of news and facts by Russia or Russian agents or even by a former MI6 agent who compiled the memorandum. Even if it is fake news, it certainly is presented as "kompromat" one easily can ask "Why should Russia not use this information with the purpose of troubeling the minds of US politicians, US opinion makers, and US citizens. They all could well become the laughingstock of Vladimir Putin."
