TRUMP-RUSSIA

The issue of Russian interference in the 2016 election dogged the president during his Asia trip, Trump saying yesterday in Vietnam that “I believe that he [Russian President Vladimir Putin] feels he and Russia did not meddle in the election,” but adding that his assessment of Russian meddling was “with our agencies.” A day before making the comments, the president dismissed the intelligence agencies as “political hacks” and cast doubt on their findings about Russian interference. Jonathan Lemire and Jill Colvin report at the AP.

The C.I.A. Director Mike Pompeo “stands by and has always stood by the January 2017 intelligence community assessment” of Russian interference in the U.S. election, a spokesperson for the agency said Saturday, making the statement following Trump’s comments about Putin’s denials that there was any Russian involvement. Mallory Shelbourne reports at the Hill.

Trump’s comments expressing support for the agencies failed to placate those he had criticized a day earlier, the former C.I.A. Director John Brennan saying that he believed Trump was trying to “delegitimize” the intelligence communities’ assessment of Russian interference and the former director of the National Intelligence James Clapper saying that the “Russians do not harbor good intentions toward the United States, and there shouldn’t be any illusions or any ambiguity about that.” Michael C. Bender reports at the Wall Street Journal.

Brennan and Clapper said that Trump has been “played” by Putin in relation to the Russian meddling in the election, Clapper adding that the threat posed by Russia is “manifest and obvious.” Eli Watkins reports at CNN.

Trump “is not getting played by anybody,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said yesterday, saying that “it’s really time to move on off this issue.” Zachary Warmbrodt reports at POLITICO.

A photograph of the British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson with the academic Joseph Mifsud emerged at the weekend, Mifsud has been a person of interest in the Russia investigations as there have been allegations that he acted as a conduit between the Trump campaign and Russia. Johnson has said that he has no recollection of the meeting, however the revelation raises questions about possible Russian influence in the U.K. government. David M. Herszenhorn reports at POLITICO.

No charges have yet been filed against Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn despite many stating that evidence of wrongdoing has been gathered. There has been speculation that Flynn may already be cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and multiple news outlets have alleged that Flynn is under investigation for his ties to the Turkish government and a deal to try and secure the extradition of the U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gülen, who was accused of being the mastermind behind last year’s failed coup in Ankara. Katie Bo Williams reports at the Hill.

The background to Flynn’s appointment as national security adviser is set out by Nancy Cook at POLITICO.

Every known interaction between members of the Trump campaign and Russians are set out by Meg Kelly at the Washington Post.

“Putin is a world-class liar,” the truth remains elusive inside Russia and Russia’s actions across Europe and in the U.S. demonstrate Putin’s mastery of the art of deception. Within this context, Trump’s acceptance of Putin’s blatant lies regarding Russian interference are weakening America’s institutions and defenses. Ryan Goodman, the co-editor-in chief of Just Security, and John Sipher, a former member of the C.I.A. National Clandestine Service, write at the Atlantic.

CYBERSECURITY, PRIVACY AND TECHNOLOGY

The breach of confidential National Security Agency (N.S.A.) information in April 2016 has shaken the agency, there has been broad agreement that the breach has already far exceeded the damage down by the Snowden leaks and the wide-ranging investigation into the leak has not yet concluded whether the information was obtained through a high-level hack, an insider’s leak, or both. Scott Shane, Nicole Perlroth and David E. Sanger report at the New York Times.

Britain’s digital surveillance agency G.C.H.Q. has expressed concern that products from the Russia-based Kaspersky Lab may be being used by Russian government as a means to gather intelligence, Kaspersky Lab anti-virus software is used by more than two million U.K. customers. Sam Jones and Martin Arnold report at the Financial Times.

Today’s Headlines and Commentary
President Donald Trump praised his great relationship with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte after meeting with him during a summit in Manila, the New York Times reported. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the two leaders discussed trade, terrorism and combating illegal drug trade. Sanders maintained that Trump brought up human rights briefly when discussing the Philippines crackdown on illegal drugs, but Dutertes spokesperson denied that they broached the subject. Human rights groups have accused Duterte of organizing a campaign of extrajudicial killings in his war on drugs.

Saad Hariri, the recently resigned prime minister of Lebanon, promised to return to Beirut soon from Saudi Arabia, the Washington Post reported. In live interview from Riyadh, Hariri said he was free to travel where he wishes, contradicting suggestions that the Saudi government was holding him captive. Michel Aoun, Lebanons president, reacted positively to Hariris statement that he would return to Beirut, Reuters reported. Aoun also raised the possibility that Hariri could rescind his resignation. Hariri has yet to officially present his resignation to Aoun, a legal formality required to leave his post.

The top U.S. Air Force commander in the Middle East said Iran likely manufactured the missile that Yemeni rebels fired at the Riyadh airport last week, the AP reported. Lt. Gen. Jeffrey Harrigian backed Saudi Arabias accusation that Iran supplied the missile to Houthi rebels fighting a Saudi-led coalition in Yemen. The coalition said on Monday that it would begin reopening Yemens ports after closing them in response to the missile strike, the Post reported. However, the coalition will keep the main entry point for desperately-needed food and health supplies into the country closed until it can verify that no weapons are entering the country, according to Reuters.

European leaders agreed on a new defense pact to strengthen military cooperation within the European Union, the Wall Street Journal reported. As Britain prepares to exit the EU, 23 of the remaining EU members reached an accord on sharing military logistical resources and joint emergency response forces. Separately, EU foreign ministers approved economic sanctions and an arms embargo on Venezuela, according to Reuters. The measures respond to irregularities in recent elections and political chaos that has engulfed the country.

Iraqi and Kurdish leaders are engaging in informal diplomacy to resolve the crisis over control of Iraqi Kurdistans border crossings, the Times reports. While formal talks have broken down, officials in Baghdad and Erbil are exchanging daily phone calls to avoid further clashes between Iraqi and Kurdish forces.

Israel will continue to strike targets in Syria despite U.S. and Russian efforts to reach a local ceasefire accord, Reuters reported. Israel said it would not refrain from striking Iranian-linked forces, including Hezbollah, that come near its positions on the Golan Heights. Last week, the U.S. and Russia announced they would expand a local ceasefire near the Israeli frontier in Syria that is meant to separate rival factions fighting in the civil war. Israeli officials said the accord did not adequately prevent Iranian-liked forces from approaching Israels borders.

The murdered Green Beret in Mali discovered that two Navy SEALs he was working with were siphoning money from an intelligence fund to pay informants, the Daily Beast reported. The two SEALs falsely claimed that the Green Beret, Sgt. Logan Melgar, was drunk before he was found asphyxiated in his hotel room. An investigation into Melgars death found he had no substances in his body.

YouTube took down thousands of videos of Al-Qaeda propagandist Anwar al-Awlaki, the Times reported. After allowing al-Awlakis content to persist on its platform for years, YouTube dramatically reduced the amount of the clerics preachings available to the public, including many lectures not specifically related to terrorism.

North Korean forces fired on one of their own soldiers as attempted to defect to South Korea, according to the Times. The soldier, despite being shot, managed to cross the demilitarized zone and reach South. He is now at a South Korean hospital.

The Times Scott Shane, Nicole Perlroth and David Sanger wrote about the devastating effect of recent malware leaks on operations and morale at the National Security Agency.

Another Thing Putin and Trump Share: Support for Makhaevism

Paul Goble

Staunton, November 13 Makhaevism, a phenomenon Lenin denounced a century ago, is making a comeback not only in Russia but in the United States and for the same reason: those who view the educated as the key problem and most appropriate target for attack are less inclined to go after their class enemies, the wealthy, exactly what the latter want.

The way in which the draft tax bills in the US Congress target those whose work is based on educational achievement and who seek to improve themselves via higher education to the benefit of those who are in business or even more those who live on the basis of unearned income has attracted widespread comment in the US.

And the attacks by Donald Trump on expertise and education per se have enjoyed remarkable resonance among many working-class Americans, especially given that these attacks have been accompanied by the American presidents insistence than any talk about increasing income inequality is a form of impermissible class war.

 

Now the same thing is happening in Russia, where Vladimir Putin and his regime are encouraging attacks on intellectuals of various stripes, portraying them as a fifth column or worse, in order to distract attention and make illegitimate any criticism of the wealth Putin and his entourage have gained for themselves (novayagazeta.ru/articles/2017/11/13/74527-goppi).

In the American case, this phenomenon hasnt been given a name; but in the Russian one, some have suggested goppi or gopniki — although in both a far better and more descriptive term would be Makhaevism, the term of abuse its opponents a century ago gave to the attitude of working-class Russians that the intelligentsia was more culturally alien than the rich.

What was called Makhaevism then reflects the attitudes of many working-class people across the world today and also and especially importantly to the way wealthy leaders are exploiting this anger in ways that ultimately work against that interests of those who feel it than do many of the terms now applied to the various tectonic shifts taking place around the world.

On the one hand, hostility to educated cultural elites explains the voting and polling behavior of workers better than class interests. Thus, many working-class people in many places view such elites as alien and out of touch with their needs even while supporting those who have or have gained great wealth.

But on the other, one of the basic failings of Makhaevism, its lack of a solution to this problem except to call for a permanent general strike by the workers against the educated, points to an outcome that history has seen before: the rise of authoritarian populism which in the name of protecting the workers from the alien cultural elite ends by defending those in power.

The term comes from the denunciations by Lenin and then Stalin of the writings of Jan Waclaw Machajski (1866-1926), a Polish Marxist of anarcho-syndicalist tendencies. (For background, see Paul Avrich, What is Makhaevism? Soviet Studies, July 1965, available online at theanarchistlibrary.org/library/paul-avrich-what-is-makhaevism; Marshall Shatz, Jan Wavlaw Machajski (Pittsburgh, 1989), and Albert Parrys introduction to the collection of Machayskis writings collected and republished as Umstvennyy rabochy(New York, 1968).

Lenin first denounced Machajski and Makhaevism both because the Polish writers argument was fundamentally non-Marxist in that it viewed cultural and educational divides as deeper than economic ones and because it threatened Lenins Bolshevik Party which included far more intellectuals than workers.

In the early and mid-1920s, Stalin joined in that denunciation, viewing it as a useful tool in his campaign against his better educated opponents in the Bolshevik party by playing to the hostility of many workers and peasants against a class they often despised as those who wore glasses and deserved to be killed rather than listened to.

Later in the mid-1930s, after he had vanquished his more educated Old Bolshevik opponents and sought to promote support for the new Soviet intelligentsia, Stalin too joined in the denunciation of Makhaevism among the Soviet population as something antithetical to the interests of Marxism-Leninism.

Now, however, the term and the phenomenon it refers to not only have re-emerged but with the support of the leaders of two important countries to the detriment of the futures of the people in both.
