Donetsk film’s planned interference in the US Presidential Election

Rhys Jones

The new spy thriller Alpha R, which is being shot in Donetsk for a release later this summer, features a “warning shot” about a possible escalation of the New Cold War on the part of the American ‘deep state’, if there is a (perhaps not only hypothetical) Joe Biden electoral victory.

A special “future” issue of Slovo (a weekly newspaper that is regularly delivered to President Putin) was printed for the film. The headline ‘from the future’ reads:

Joe Biden: “We will tear Russia apart” – The new master of the White House is ready to push the red button”

Biden’s “reputation” in Donbas and in the eyes of the film’s authors shouldn’t come as a surprise as he and his son are considered in Donbass to be the perpetrators of the war unleashed by Kiev’s marionette “authorities”. The fifth episode of the series ‘MH17 Inquiry’ called “It was a MIG” (also published here on Off-G), provides insight into their role in this conflict.

Another sequence in Alpha R, which sets itself a goal to upstage the creators of the finale of Terminator 3, tells how Russia’s still operational “Perimeter” system (known in the West as ‘Dead Hand’) would work if someone attempted to attack Russia. American Army Generals often look somewhat queasy when they answer journalist’s questions about this system.

The producers of Alpha R are planning to exhibit the film in the US during the next presidential election. And if this is considered ‘Russian interference’, then they are saying that:

…they would be proud that Donetsk has it’s hand in that as we would be preventing a doomsday outcome for America and for the whole world.”

“This ‘interference’ isn’t something that we have to be shy about”, says the film’s producer, “America is Russia’s eternal debtor, it owes us its very existence. I mean Russia’s practical aid to the Northern States in the Civil War of 1861-1865.”

At the time Great Britain and France considered supporting the Confederacy but eventually remained neutral, that fact speaks for itself.

In Alpha R Russia’s RVSN “Dead Hand” control team allows themselves a shot of a fiery drink called ‘Lavrov’, named after Russia’s Foreign Minister (another tongue in cheek reference) after performing a salvo of retribution.

The producer emphasises:

“We hope that as in the finale of ‘Terminator 3’, this doomsday scenario (which even in the film is depicted as as one of the most unlikely and most undesirable outcomes) will never actually happen […] And that ‘Lavrov fire water’ is, of course, a metaphor. The goal of our film is peace, but in order for us all to value it more, we must show the true cost of war.”

Speaking of Trump — Israeli Spy Companies Show Critical Link Between Flynn, Deripaska, and Senate Intelligence Committee Target Walter Soriano
 
It is notable that the Senate Intelligence Committee, led by Republican Chairman Richard Burr and Democratic Ranking Member Mark Warner, requested information from Soriano on his communications with many of these individuals. The Committee finalized the last section of its investigation into foreign interference in the 2016 Presidential Election just weeks ago, as Burr was forced to step down amidst allegations of insider trading.
 
The final section was submitted for declassification review on Burr’s last day in his role as Committee Chair. The Republican-led Committee has been known for its quiet, bipartisan work throughout the Trump Administration: its Republican majority notably issued a subpoena to Donald Trump, Jr. in June 2018, despite fierce opposition from President Trump.
 
The final section of the report, reportedly approximately 1000 pages, is said to detail a counterintelligence investigation conducted into the Trump Campaign’s connections with foreign actors. Such an investigation may be more extensive than the criminal investigation conducted by Robert Mueller, as counterintelligence investigations typically have a wider scope than criminal ones.
 
The Senate Intelligence Committee Report is slated to be released publicly–with redactions–in the coming weeks.
 
When asked whether Walter Soriano features in the upcoming report, both Senators Burr and Warner declined to comment.

Shoot, Trump if Biden gets the shit-house role, might be the next king of Brazil. Now that would be cool:
 
But there’s a looming question about all of this. How could Weintraub have traveled to and entered the United States given the Executive Order issued by President Trump on May 24 which barred all Brazilian nationals and other non-citizens who have been in Brazil for the prior 14 days from entering the U.S.? Trump’s May 24 “Proclamation on Suspension of Entry as Immigrants and Nonimmigrants of Certain Additional Persons Who Pose a Risk of Transmitting Novel Coronavirus” states:
 

The entry into the United States, as immigrants or nonimmigrants, of all aliens who were physically present within the Federative Republic of Brazil during the 14-day period preceding their entry or attempted entry into the United States is hereby suspended….

So, we’re supposed to assume that countries like Russia don’t have journals like the “National Enquirer” and conspiracy theorists working from metaphorical basements but are all highly disciplined and motivated automatoms doing the Kremlin’s (i.e. Putin’s) bidding?
 
Pull the other one…..
 
The vast majority of people in the US have absolutely no idea who or what “Donetsk” is**. Americans are unlikely to be swayed by any propaganda in the coming election cycle, whatever the source. They belong in two distinct camps — one (hopefully a majority) who believe that Trump and his fellow travellers are a threat to both the well being and soul of the US and those that believe that he deserves deification along the lines of “Dear Leader” (although I suspect the N. Korean prototype is actually a lot more sanguine). That’s why the focus is on how to enable or suppress voting in some relatively small parts of the country; we’ve figured that to gain and maintain power only requires tiny majorities in a handful of relatively impoverished states, you don’t need to go to the trouble of actually engaging with a majority of the population. (…and with the emphasis on packing the Federal judiciary with ‘reliable’ appointees the strategy is ensure teh smooth passage of enabling legislation and executive orders plus — if the worst should happen — the ability to stop any competing party in its tracks.)
 
Its true that the way the conservative fringe are fighting means that eventually the only way forward for them, to make their lies and distortions real, is war. Serious war. There is historical precedent for this — Germany, for example, built up its economy and military machine through large scale deficit spending in the 1930s with the understanding that it had to go to war by 1942 or its economy would collapse. I have no wish to inflict this on the world, I’m not so naive to think it will all end in flowers and victory parades, so regardless of who’s spending what on whatever I hope sanity — some semblance of it, anyway — will return for 2021.
 
(**AFAIK Its a small, relatively impoverished, coal mining region of Russia that, unfortuantely, found itself geographically in Ukraine)

Donetsk (the City) is in the region of Donetsk in the south-east corner of Ukraine not far from the Russian border. It was in the middle of heavy industry, coal and steel area and has a population of 1 million. The population is overwhelmingly Russian speaking and they have relatives just over the border.
 
As you say people in the ”US have absolutely no idea who or what Donetsk is”. This isn’t surprising since people in the US don’t know the difference between Austria and Australia, or in Trump’s case the idea that Finland is part of Russia.

In Orwell’s 1984 there were three superstates, Oceania, Eurasia, and Eastasia. These powers were permanently at war with each other in various combinations. But the wars were fought on geographical areas outside of the geopolitical remit of the three. The wars waxed and waned and no-one was ever the outright winner. But of course final victory was never meant to be. The whole purpose was to keep the respective populations in a situation of permanent fear and war hysteria with war propaganda with this endless and meaningless struggle. This enabled the elites to control populations and that was the sole purpose of permanent war, cold or hot.
 
This would remain until the Proles revolted. But Orwell write: The Proles would never revolt until the become conscious, and they would never become conscious until they revolt.
 
This seems a pretty good description of contemporary world geopolitics.

There was no internet in Orwell’s 1984 — that’s the difference. With the internet, the proles can now become conscious before they revolt. The revolt is already underway: Trump and Brexit were part of it. Just wait till next year!

The internet does not make anyone conscious. It’s a disinformation and dehumanisation machine. “Information” is not enough for some kind of global awakening. The internet does not belong to you and me, it belongs to those who own the infrastructure that enables it to function. The only grassroots activity that can work is the old ways of printing leaflets, posters, etc and spreading them around. Forget the internet and act in your local community, no matter how broken it seems.

It looks like an overt attempt to favour Trump by depicting Biden as a warmongering nutter. Since many Democrats think or pretend to think Trump is manipulated by the Russians, it might be grist to their particular mill.

Like the rest of us, Trump and Biden both have owners. It’s no use pretending otherwise. And those owners want perpetual war because of the staggering profit to be made out of it. Confronting any other version of modern events is exactly like Don Quixote tilting at windmills.

The problem with TPTB is that, as with Orwell’s “1984” and Huxley’s “Brave New World”, they’ll take the Donetsk film as a blueprint and training manual.

That is indeed the new narrative. They watch Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty”, and think to themselves, “That Maleficent witch is for me. What a cool role model…”
This is precisely the value of fairy tales. It presents all possible role models: You get to choose, and you get to live with the consequences, or you perish with the consequences, as Maleficent did. There is wisdom in those ancient tales, but you have to be human to recognize it.

Actually, Sleeping Beauty is a very old tale, but of course Disney made his own version of it, as did earlier writers, building upon traditions handed down by word of mouth about knights like St. George, rescuing damsels in distress and slaying dragons, etc.
Darby O’Gill and the Little People is another one, drawing upon folk lore about banshees and the like. Snow White was Disney’s first full-length “good vs evil” cartoon story, and so on . . .
My point was really just to express surprise that it looks as if some people can look at a good-vs-evil story, and think the evil course is a perfectly acceptable option, while the purpose of the old stories is to demonstrate that the consequences of the evil path are never worth it.

That comment needed at least one upvote, because there’s a lot of truth in it. I am a long way from being any kind of warmonger, but it strikes me again and again that US foreign policy is as sickening as it is merely because it can dismiss all those countries it goes to war with as being distant enough to constitute no threat to its own shores. The tactics of the typical bully, in other words.

Thanks Ward. Hopefully the absurdity or sardonic tone got the basic point accross.
.
Violent coups never lead to a good outcome in the end. I hope that this yellow/black vest movement continues to be peaceful as it grows.
.
There are about to be 10M more homeless in the US over the next two months. I hope Nancy stocked up that chocolate bunker. And perhaps Trump should reinforce that new wall in Washington.
.
But I am very opposed to a violent solution to this. It isn’t neccessary when the movement consists of (ultimately) 50-100M people. And in this I am not referring to that army of virtue signalling fake PC “extremists” online. Or that traitor to the cause Sanders.
.
Leaderless groups are a response to fascism but we see a side effect here. There are no clear demands beyond “defunding” and no vision of a path forward. This is coming from politically educated progressives but not adopted.
.
So as a student and (IT) project manager that’s my opinion. I am required to have one regardless of it’s obvious ignorance. Thoughts?
.
I think I have a real solution across class boundaries and pluralistic. IE not utopian or deeply flawed. But like all such things there is no chance of adoption. So regardless of any realistic nature it is effectively utopian.
.
And effectively nihilism is the result facing the hopelessness of seeing a better set ideologies emerge.
.
Burn it all down? Overt fascism? Who knows?
.
We had a combo for rapid collapse. Bank/ market failure, the Sanders betrayal, covid and the BLM protests.
.
This is the time that any random event could be the last straw. I would go so far as to say any middle power could create this event now. Foreign ones too.
.
Heck. I could influence their election if I wanted to but would not. One person alone could have noticable effects if they had the training and gile.
.
This is why I have been studying these things. It should be of great concern. My Cassandra complex is healthy and well, it’s the martyr inside me I have to riegn in. Lol.

Not an identical situation to Germany in the 1930s, but a similarly desperate one, and I agree that this should be of great concern. After all, one person alone DID manage to exploit that situation back then. Perhaps Bill Gates is the man who is doing that right now in the 21st Century, and if so, it certainly isn’t us who will benefit.
History seems to teach us that quite often things have to get much worse before they will get better, and that is of great concern for most of today’s human beings…

There are no clear demands beyond “defunding” and no vision of a path forward.

It’s easy to be an armchair critic of any social movement. I have no idea if CHAZ is real and genuinely grass roots. Issuing demands seems a bit pointless and basically means that this is nothing more than a prolonged demonstration. Still it’s better than staying at home and posting stuff on the internet IMO. What matters is that a lot of people take to the streets saying no to totalitarianism and oppression…as often as possible.

That’s an important observation to make and I agree the three points.
That observation I made was restating the problem I saw 2 years ago.
Cellular organized groups intrinsically have a problem with planning and communications. They are not even FBI/CIA resistant in their current form.
.
That’s a tough nut to crack but I have a solution there too. Which would therefore be temporary at best. It’s irrelevant anyways beyond being a brag.

What I wonder if where the f*ck are all the “smart people”? Hiding? Getting rich? Being shtooopid? I dunno, and I don’t understand that. I suspect they are ignored and hidden on the web. It’s not like I am special Human.
