“A powerful contradiction to the present US narrative of the world…” —Oliver Stone
“The Plot to Scapegoat Russia…confronts the timeliest of subjects, the effort to resuscitate the Cold War by blaming Russian president Vladimir Putin for interfering in the 2016 presidential campaign on behalf of Donald Trump, an effort pursued by CIA and the Democratic Party working in tandem. Kovalik establishes… that not a scintilla of evidence has emerged to grant credibility to this self-serving fantasy… (and he) deftly eviscerates the mainstream press. Reading this book will be salutary, illuminating, and more than instructive.”
— Joan Mellen, author of Faustian Bargains: Lyndon Johnson and Mac Wallace in the Robber Baron Culture of Texas
At a time when the US military budget is again soaring to enrich the oligarchs, this timely and thought-provoking book turns Orwellian ‘double-think’ on its head in a cogent analysis of what’s really behind all the saber-rattling against Russia. In a scholarly but also deeply personal and fluidily written work, Dan Kovalnik pulls no punches in dissecting the history of how America has justified its own imperialistic aims through the Cold War era and right up to the current anti-Putin hysteria.”
—Dick Russell, NY Times bestselling author of Horsemen of the Apocalypse

I know many, many people who need to listen to this guy…
This talk by Dan Kovalik tonight was just amazing. He shared so much history in a succinct and interesting and passionate way. It isn’t just about NOT promoting this bogus Russia-phobia – there is historical importance in seeing why this is so backwards and how doing the opposite could provide a rare ray of hope. AND, there are so many things we’re being distracted from seeing in this massive concentration on “bad-Russia.” Thank you KPFA for squeezing him in and even promoting him in between people such as Al Franken and whoever that other centrist-Dem were who will continue this world digging into more of the same hell as we have with the Dem’s spawn – Donald Trump. I believe if more KPFA shows would intelligently air the kinds of things Kovalik referenced, including airing him, KPFA audiences would shift and begin supporting these important events and shows more. It CAN be done. (In contrast to interviewing Brookings Institute personnel on their party-line new bogeyman – Korea.)
