While China is now the latest target country the US seems intent on crushing, Russia remains the global go-to monster state to be spuriously blamed for all espionage and evil doing; it’s also the choice culprit for red flag events to generate foe outrage over the ‘foreign enemy’ to detract from domestic mayhem by the alliance of badly Governed super powers. Johnson’s Tory Government, already being tooled around by Trump in his cold war ramp-up, will become even more vulnerable to US pressure after the forced self-harm of crash-out Brexit, when we can no longer rely on the EU for trade or allegiance. As always truth is the best disinfectant, which is why it is imperative that Jeremy Corbyn fights the John Ware defamation in Court to expose the BBC and media lies that deprived the British people of a Socialist Government. Ironically a Court case involving the Russia Report’s named key contributor, former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, has exposed his and his dubious spy sources total lack of credibility.

In a RealClearInvestigations Article entitled, “Meet the Steele Dossier’s ‘Primary Subsource’: Fabulist Russian From Democrat Think Tank Whose Boozy Past the FBI Ignored,” they focus on his work fabricating a link between Russia, Trump and the sabotage of Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign. Just like our rush to find the rogue state meddling behind Brexit, lost cause Clinton really didn’t need Russian intervention, as the toxicity of her sabotage of Bernie Sanders and home grown PsyOps did it for her. The now infamous spy Christopher Steele, who created the Institute of Statecraft and the Integrity Initiative to milk our gullible Tory Government of millions by feeding dubious information to anyone who foolish enough to pay him just lost a libel case brought against him by a Russian businessman. They report, “Dossier source Danchenko’s drinking pals fed him a tissue of false ‘rumour and speculation’ for pay— which Steele, in turn, further embellished with spy-crafty details and sold to his client as ‘intelligence’.”

They reveal that, “The mysterious ‘Primary Subsource’ that Christopher Steele has long hidden behind to defend his discredited Trump-Russia dossier is a former Brookings Institution analyst — Igor ‘Iggy’ Danchenko, a Russian national whose past includes criminal convictions and other personal baggage ignored by the FBI in vetting him and the information he fed to Steele, according to congressional sources and records obtained by RealClearInvestigations. Agents continued to use the dossier as grounds to investigate President Trump and put his advisers under counter-espionage surveillance. The 42-year-old Danchenko, who was hired by Steele in 2016 to deploy a network of sources to dig up dirt on Trump and Russia for the Hillary Clinton campaign, was arrested, jailed and convicted years earlier on multiple public drunkenness and disorderly conduct charges in the Washington area and ordered to undergo substance-abuse and mental-health counselling, according to criminal records.”

So why might this be relevant to the Intelligence and Securities Committee’s Russia Report? RealClearInvestigations reveal that, “As a former member of Britain’s secret intelligence service, Steele hadn’t travelled to Russia in decades and apparently had no useful sources there. So he relied entirely on Danchenko and his supposed ‘network of subsources,’ which to its chagrin, the FBI discovered was nothing more than a ‘social circle.’ It soon became clear over their three days of debriefing him at the FBI’s Washington field office, held just days after Trump was sworn into office, that any Russian insights he may have had were strictly academic.” You would think that America, our ‘five eyes’ partner would have given us a heads up on the unreliability of our former intelligence officer and his dubious sources in Russia, but no they vetted him discovered he was unreliable and didn’t bother telling the UK allies. Do not expect to hear this embarrassing fact on a BBC News bulletin as it is being kept under wraps.

RealClearInvestigations say, “Danchenko confessed he had no inside line to the Kremlin and was ‘clueless’ when Steele hired him in March 2016 to investigate ties between Russia and Trump and his campaign manager. Desperate for leads, he turned to a ragtag group of Russian and American journalists, drinking buddies (including one who’d been arrested on pornography charges) and even an old girlfriend to scare up information for his London paymaster, according to the FBI’s January 2017 interview memo, which runs 57 pages. Like him, his friends made a living hustling gossip for cash, and they fed him a tissue of false ‘rumor and speculation.’ Instead of closing its case against Trump, however, the FBI continued to rely on the information Danchenko dictated to Steele for the dossier, even swearing to a secret court that it was credible enough to renew wiretaps for another nine months. One of Danchenko’s sources was nothing more than an anonymous voice on the other end of a phone call that lasted 10-15 minutes.”

If as RealClearInvestigations say, “Steele hadn’t travelled to Russia in decades and apparently had no useful sources there. So he relied entirely on Danchenko and his supposed ‘network of subsources’,” who was he relying on for the information to convince the British ISC that Russia posed a threat? Go figure! In the article they reveal that, “Some veteran FBI officials worry Moscow’s foreign intelligence service may have planted disinformation with Danchenko and his network of sources in Russia. At least one of them, identified only as “Source 5” in the FBI memo, was described as having a Russian ‘kurator,’ or handler. ‘There are legions of ‘connected’ Russians purveying second- and third-hand, and often made-up, due diligence reports and private intelligence,’ said former FBI assistant director Chris Swecker. ‘Putin’s intelligence minions use these people well to plant information’.” Who could blame Putin and his Russian GRU for playing their cold-war enemies like fools?

Our faithful Socialist hero the falsely demonized former Labour MP from Derby North, Chris Williamson, penned an Article in the Morning Star entitled, “The chilling manipulations of the Institute for Statecraft are straight out of the cold war playbook,” back when kicking out the Tories seemed a real possibility. He proclaimed that, “As the prospect of a socialist government is now a real possibility, it seems that vested interests will stoop to all manner of dirty tricks and smears to prevent that eventuality.” I doubt he could have imagined the Covert 2019 Rigged Election result and Johnson’s fake ‘landslide victory’ 80 seat majority. He said “Over the past couple of months, I have been investigating the activities of the Institute for Statecraft and its so-called ‘Integrity Initiative,’ after some of its dubious actions were highlighted in recently published hacked documents. They have registered premises just outside the Scottish village of Auchtermuchty and an office suite in an exclusive location near Temple Station in central London.”

Williamson continued, “In response to one of my parliamentary questions on December 3,” and he quotes Foreign Office Minister Alan Duncan who said that: “The Institute for Statecraft is an independent Scottish charitable body whose work seeks to improve governance and enhance national security. They launched the Integrity Initiative in 2015 to defend democracy against disinformation.” Which sounds like a noble cause, until Williamson reveals that, “The problem is that this ‘charitable body’ hasn’t confined itself to that and has strayed into smearing Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party. These tactics resemble those deployed by the CIA in Operation Mockingbird that was launched at the height of the cold war in the early 1950s. Its aims included using the mainstream news media as a propaganda tool. They manipulated the news agenda by recruiting leading journalists to write stories with the express purpose of influencing public opinion in a particular way.”

Williamson warns that, “Now it seems the British Establishment have dusted off the CIA’s old playbook and is intent on giving it another outing on this side of the Atlantic.” He notes, “Interestingly the mainstream media has been rather tardy in its coverage of the revelations contained in the hacked documents. I would have thought an international network of politicians, journalists, academics, researchers and military officers associated with this British-based project might have merited more than a passing mention on the BBC. But the fact that this charity has gone well beyond ‘defending democracy against disinformation’ and is itself indulging in disinformation against the Labour Party and its leader seemingly isn’t newsworthy to mainstream media editors. Even more so after I discovered, through a series of parliamentary questions, that since 2017 the Foreign Office has given more than £2.2 million to the Institute for Statecraft’s Integrity Initiative.”

Williamson continues his scathing revelations by presenting evidence saying, “Furthermore, a report on the Integrity Initiative by academics David Miller, Paul McKeigue, Jake Mason and Piers Robinson was published last month, which revealed its funding sources also included Facebook and Nato. Their report sets out the activities of the Integrity Initiative and makes for chilling reading. It refers to ‘manipulation of the public sphere, including campaigns to smear and suppress dissenters and block their appointment to public office.’ They cite overt attacks on British politicians, academics and other critics of Westminster government policies, most notably on the leader of the opposition and his staff. The report also states that covert networks or ‘clusters’ of journalists and academics are being established alongside a critical mass of individuals in think tanks, politics, government and the military whose work is mutually reinforcing.”

Williamson outlined steps he was taking and why something needed to be done, “These actions are not the charitable purposes set out in the Institute of Statecraft’s constitution. In fact, they do not amount to any kind of charitable activity at all, which is why I have written to the Scottish Charity Regulator which is now mounting an investigation.” He revealed the Institute of Statecraft’s more expansive malign agenda by revealing, “…the efforts of this state-funded charity are not confined to Britain. I have recently written to the Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez about the campaign launched by the Integrity Initiative last summer against the appointment of Pedro Banos as the director of Spain’s Department of Homeland Security. The group’s Spanish cluster succeeded in blocking Banos’s appointment by relentless public hostility and at least one Tory MP took to Twitter to join in the attacks.”

Williamson questioned, “…precisely why a Conservative MP, who represents the Isle of Wight, should publicly seek to damage a candidate for an internal Spanish governmental appointment is rather puzzling. When I asked Alan Duncan what on Earth a government-funded British-based charity was doing interfering in the internal appointments of a fellow European democracy, he completely failed to answer. In fact, the government has rebuffed most of my questions about the Institute for Statecraft and the Integrity Initiative. Ministers respond by saying things like: ‘Documents and correspondence about projects within the Programme will not be published, as this information could then be used to actively attempt to disrupt and undermine the Programme’s effectiveness’. Consequently, I tried to obtain some answers directly from the people behind this charity and so last month I visited both premises in Scotland and London.”

Of his visit to Scotland he relates, “I arrived at the address in Auchtermuchty after dark, to find it is located at the end of an isolated dirt track. When I reached the building, I was confronted by a semi-derelict mill. I spoke to some of the businesses based there, but none of them had heard of the Institute for Statecraft.” He then says, “When I visited their office in London the following week, the door was slammed in my face when I explained I wanted to ask some questions about their activities. Hardly the response of a state-funded organisation with nothing to hide.” Williamson talks hopefully of “the prospect of a socialist government” honestly believing as so many of us did before the Covert 2019 Rigged Election that it was, “a real possibility, even a probability.” If only we had recognized the worst, “…that vested interests will stoop to all manner of dirty tricks and smears to prevent that eventuality,” but we could never have imagined how ruthless the campaign would be with relentless lies and the BBC violating Purdah

Williamson concluded, “That is why it’s important to expose organisations like the Institute for Statecraft, and the Integrity Initiative, because they are incompatible with an open democracy. Goodness knows how many other bogus charities are lurking in the shadows seeking to influence public opinion and damage the prospects for a socialist Labour government.” He said that he didn’t expect the smears to end any time soon and in the end he too was targeted with an anti-Semitic smear campaign to oust him as an MP. He said back then that he intended to “continue pressing for answers to try to get the bottom of this scandal” and I hope he has not given up. These revelations about Christopher Steele, the Institute of Statecraft and his Integrity Initiative that’s devoid of integrity all support the defence of Jeremy Corbyn and add to the evidence in the leaked report that Starmer refused to send to Equality and Human Rights Commission as evidence, but was submitted by Craig Murray.

The knowledge that the sitting Tory Government in the UK has spent public money to deliberately fabricate disinformation to defame the opposition Labour Party and its Leader Jeremy Corbyn is enough to render the Covert 2019 Rigged Election invalid even without a full investigation into the industrial scale fraud committed with the postal votes. If this was exposed in a foreign country there would be an international outcry over this forcing the Tory perpetrators to face criminal charges. Look at the faux outrage over Venezuela at the UN despite having one of the safest voting systems in the world! The attempt by Starmer to erase Corbyn from the Labour Party in disgrace by settling a winnable lawsuit out of Court using members dues to reward John Ware, the ‘Poison Dartblowers’ and thus vindicating the BBC is the straw that broke the camel’s back. This scandal has reached toxic max we have the right to demand immediate resignations and a full public inquiry. Jeremy’s Defence Fund hit £316.000; so little time left to rescue our democracy. DO NOT MOVE ON!
