This is now, quite apparently, what we’ve come down to in the United States.
We all know about Fake News courtesy of Leftist “journalistas.” There is now, courtesy of Leftist judges and attorneys, Fake Law.
I can’t believe I’m reading the article correctly but, sadly, I am indeed. From Breitbart.com:
Neal Katyal at 9th Circuit: If Trump Says ‘Islam Is Peace’ He Can Have a Travel Ban
by Ian Mason
Neal Katyal made oral arguments for maintaining the injunction against President Donald Trump’s executive order banning migrants from certain Muslim-majority countries Monday before the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
“He could say, like President Bush did right after September 11th, ‘The face of Terror is not the true face of Islam, that’s not what Islam is about, Islam is Peace.’ Instead, we get ‘Islam hates us’,” Katyal told the bench, answering Clinton-appointed Judge Richard Paez’s question on what, if anything, Trump could do to make the executive order acceptable.
Really? All President Trump has to do, according to Katyal, is cry “uncle” and all is forgiven? Really?
Katyal, former President Barack Obama’s one-time acting Solicitor General, has taken on the representation of the plaintiffs who stopped the executive order’s implementation in March when a federal court in Hawaii ruled in their favor. The Justice Department has appealed the case to the Ninth Circuit, seeking to vacate that injunction.
Do you believe Katyal will actually relent and back off the lawsuit if President Trump but says the “magic words”?
The most controversial element of Obama-appointed district court Judge Derrick Watson’s ruling was its justification of the injunction based not on the text or effect of the executive order, but on statements President Trump made during the 2016 campaign.
Precisely. Fake Law. Predicated not upon the documents in front of the court, but on mostly everything but.
According to that ruling, speaking about a “Muslim ban” and speaking negatively about the religion’s relationship with the West meant that the plaintiffs had a high enough likelihood of proving a violation of the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause to block the order. This is true even though the actual order does not take any action based on people being Muslim because, “[A] reasonable, objective observer—enlightened by the specific historical context, contemporaneous public statements, and specific sequence of events leading to its issuance—would conclude that the Executive Order was issued with a purpose to disfavor a particular religion[.]”
Meaning, again, that the issue was not what was immured on paper but what was said in the ether and not supported by paper. A logical question was then asked.
The argumentation led naturally to the question of what, if anything, could be done to save such a facially neutral order. “Does that mean that the President is forever barred from issuing an executive order along these lines?” Judge Paez asked Katyal. “What does he have to do to issue an executive order that, in your view, might pass constitutional muster?”
What indeed? Twenty-three Hail Marys? Genuflect towards Mecca? Tap a wrist? Provide evidence of stigmata?
Trump might gain more power to issue executive order if he “disavows,” Katyal argued. “One example would be what Judge Hawkins said about disavowing formally the stuff before.”
You can’t make this stuff up. But wait, there’s more. Let’s just excise whatever unappetizing elements actually exist within Islam, shall we?
In addition to suggesting Trump could save his order by telling the country “Islam is peace,” Katyal also recommended removing references, in the text of the order, to the unsavory elements of Islamic society. “It could eliminate the text which refers to honor killings,” he told the court.
Of course. Let’s just eliminate those niggling little female genital mutilation issues, the misogynist issues, the beheading issues, the Borg issues, the bacha bazi issues, the pedophilia of Islam, the internal combustion of Islam.
By the way, who is Neal Katyal? He’s the man who said this about Neil Gorsuch at Gorsuch’s hearing:
He’s also the man with the god-like endless CV. Superbly humble.
Katyal is the recipient of the very highest award given to a civilian by the U.S. Department of Justice, the Edmund Randolph Award, which the Attorney General presented to him in 2011. The Chief Justice of the United States appointed him in 2011 to the Advisory Committee on Federal Appellate Rules, and again in 2014. Additionally, he was named as One of the 40 Most Influential Lawyers of the Last Decade Nationwide by National Law Journal (2010); One of the 90 Greatest Washington Lawyers Over the Last 30 Years by Legal Times (2008); Lawyer of the Year by Lawyers USA (2006); Runner-Up for Lawyer of the Year by National Law Journal (2006); One of the Top 50 Litigators Nationwide 45 Years Old or Younger by American Lawyer (2007); and one of the top 500 lawyers in the country by LawDragon Magazine for each of the last ten years. He also won the National Law Journal’s pro bono award.
What you plan to do on Memorial Day is absolutely anathema to Leftists, Demorats and to Barack Hussein Obama. There should be no fires, no charcoal, no propane, no gathering, no smashing of grass by your feet, no using your heinous C02-emitting vehicles to get to the barbecue and, certainly, there should be no meat involved whatsoever.
That’s not even getting to the point that Obama surely believes celebrating Memorial Day does nothing but promote the oppression of persons globally by Evil America.
Yet, despite that, there is the truth. First, from RickWells.us:
Obama Pitches Alternatives To Meat -That’s Insects, At UN Globalist Food Control Event
On Tuesday Hussein Obama graced the incredibly fortunate people of Milan with his wondrous presence as the location of his coming out as the new globalist spokesperson. They can all tell their grandchildren when they get old about the time they sat in traffic and basked in the Obama greatness as his fourteen car motorcade and police escort passed nearby.
Obama was in Milan to participate in what the organizers billed as the Seeds and Chips Global Food Innovation Summit, a UN effort to control our lives, largely through the climate hoax and with a focus on telling us what we will and will not eat. A portion of the proceedings took the format of Obama sitting and engaging in inane and uninteresting chit-chat with his cook.
Well, let’s stop right there. First, Barack Hussein Obama had to get to the venue in the first place, yes? Why not on a private jet, and why not in a lengthy motorcade whose vehicles spewed tons of C02 into the atmo? From the IJR.com:
Former President Barack Obama traveled to Italy this week to make a speech on climate change at the “Seed & Chips: The Global Food Innovation Summit” in the city of Milan.
It seems like Obama has taken a page out of Leonardo DiCaprio’s book of “do as I say, not as I do” and took a private jet to Milan. Not only that, he had a 14 car convoy to get into the city, which also included protection from above with a helicopter.
It doesn’t end there. According to The Daily Mail, 300 police officers were used to protect the former president.
That would seem to include overtime, stressed budgets, more persons in C02-emitting vehicles and, after all, 14 C02-spewing cars in a motorcade. All to promote the exact opposite of what Leftists used to demand from others. Just not Barack Obama these days.
Obama, the expert on everything, is being a little coy in the initial stages of converting the peasants of the word from meat eaters to bug eaters, warning the commoners that more people on the planet were eating meat, creating the false hazard of the UN boogeyman, unsustainability. Naturally that led him back, as everything does, to a need to control the people based upon the climate.
Obama cautioned against the hazards of too many human carnivores, as he sat cross-legged for a little girl talk with his cook, noting, “People aren’t as familiar with the impact of cows and methane. As people want to increase more meat consumption, that in turn is spiking the growth of greenhouse emissions coming out of the agricultural sectors.”
Barack Hussein Obama — tone deaf as per normal — said:
“No matter what, we are going to see an increase in meat consumption.” He designated developing countries such as China, India, Indonesia, and Vietnam as the culprits. He primed the pump for austerity, stating that more advanced countries would have to teach people to “have a smaller steak” and investigate other ways to reduce their meat consumption. They’ll undoubtedly train us in the same manner they educated us out of our big cars in the seventies with high fuel prices, by making steak too expensive to eat, through taxes and regulations, so all we can afford are the smaller, cheaper cuts.
Guess what? I eat massive steaks and lobster most every weekend. I drive a rather large Kraut Kar with an amazing engine that runs on Premium. Normally aspirated, it still accelerates like a banshee on fire. I drive it hard and I drive it fast much to the dismay of my wife and my personal angel. I was warned: “never drive faster than your angel can travel.” My personal angel can easily keep up with me. We have this pact.
Obama said that eating more steaks leads to ultimate destruction. From Breitbart.com:
Barack Obama: Eating More Steaks Contributes to Climate Change
by Charlie Spiering
Former President Barack Obama warned the world that more people on the planet were eating meat, causing a dramatic rise in climate emissions.
“As people want to increase meat consumption, that in turn is spiking the growth of greenhouse emissions coming out of the agricultural sector,” Obama said, pointing to countries that were consuming more meat.
Cows and methane. Are you serious?
“What is true is that I’m not a vegetarian,” Obama admitted, adding that he “respected vegetarians” but continued to eat meat.
But here’s the ultimate Best Part:
Barack Hussein Obama made $400,000 from a speech he proffered to those he hated on Wall Street on behalf of global punters, a firm called Cantor Fitzgerald. A mere niggling detail not worth mentioning. Right? And wasn’t there more?
Obama Climate Change Speech Earns $3.26 Million for Personal Foundation
by Ben Kew
Former president Barack Obama’s speech on climate change in Italy raised €3 million ($3.26m) in ticket sales for his personal foundation, according to a report from The Times.
Having travelled to Milan in a private jet, Obama settled into a presidential suite at the Park Hyatt hotel, costing roughly €8,400 a night. Meanwhile, his entourage of security occupied two separate floors across the hotel, while his security detail required a convoy of 14 cars, a helicopter, and 300 extra police.
The event, which attracted 3500 people paying €850 a ticket, raised nearly €3 million, all of which will go to the Obama Foundation dedicated to “renewal and global progress.”
Doesn’t this “Obama Foundation” sound suspiciously familiar? Like the — ahem — Clinton Foundation? You know, the place that acquired its funds by having Bill and Hill do the exact same thing — making speeches for hundreds of thousands of dollars a pop?
Obama’s visit to Italy forms part of a series of speeches in which he defends his record in office and attempts to undermine the policies of the Trump administration. In an acceptance speech after receiving the John F. Kennedy “Profile in Courage” award, Obama urged lawmakers to show “political courage” to save his landmark healthcare bill known as the Affordable Care Act.
You get that? “Part of a series of speeches”? At hundreds of thousands of dollars each? Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren carefully disagrees with Obama’s expensive speeches as she speaks with SiriusXM 102 Radio Andy’s program “Alter Family Politics.”
Even Bill Maher and Bernie Sanders weigh in against Barack Hussein Obama.
Once more, the rampant and burgeoning hypocrisy of Leftists and specifically Mr Obama.

Mr Obama, like a spoiled child who has been told he can’t do or have something, is moving in a unilateral fashion to ensure the presidential transition is as troublesome as possible for President-Elect Donald Trump, to the point where the US could actually be under escalated threat. Cyber warfare, now, can be every bit as disastrous as kinetic warfare.
The most accurate summary of what’s happening was made by Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, when he said:
“Obama is like a tenant who has been evicted from a property, and he’s going to trash the place on the way out.”
When Obama’s Doctrine has historically been to “lead from behind,” he now feels it’s time to blow up his chest and posture. Dove turns suddenly to hawk. Why here, why now? Easy: it serves Obama’s and the Demorats’ narrative because this focus deflects from the facts that Demorats, the DNC and Hillary Clinton cheated, lied, colluded, embraced corruption and committed actual yet-unindicted crimes
Let’s not forget it’s Mr Obama who said during the 2012 debate with Mitt Romney:
Let us not forget that the Obama Doctrine itself called for a “Russian reset” in 2009, to the point where Hillary Clinton delivered as a gift, literally, a red button to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in a press conference. The “reset” was to shift from the ways of the Evil & Judgmental George Bush. As perhaps a portent of things to come, the Russian-language label had the wrong word, and read ‘overcharged’ instead of ‘reset.’
Let us not forget it was Mr Obama who leaned over to Russian President Dimitri Medvedev and was caught, sotto voce, on a active microphone asking Russian President Dmitry Medvedev for “space.” Obama said “this is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”
Our relationship with Russia is the worst it’s been since the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. Obama stated he wanted, specifically, sanctions and retaliation for Russia’s “hacking of our election” and the DNC, though Obama offers no evidence or facts to support the allegation — in fact, having said the Russians were not involved — therefore escalating tensions between the two countries. Obama has stated there are “covert actions” coming next. Covert actions? Of what variety? And why — if covert actions are in fact looming — would you be sufficiently daft to announce same?
Further, the sanctions and expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats from various locations and shutting down two Russian compounds in Maryland and New York is stuff of the old Cold War. “Covert actions” are not. Russia may conclude these proposed actions are true existential threats to their security, to include hacking their military and nuclear facilities, their banks, the electrical grid. While the American Media Maggots egg Mr Obama on — in itself one of the strangest things recently, the AMM now being hawks instead of doves — simultaneously Russia leaves Obama out of cease-fire talks with Syria.
In response — no shock — Putin in Moscow says that Russia is considering “retaliation” for Obama’s “retaliation.” Putin’s “retaliation” is of the unknown variety at this point.
Mr Obama does this with twenty-one days left in his lame duck administration.
Even the New York Times seemed to “get it” when it wrote on Thursday that Obama’s actions appear designed to “box in President-elect Donald Trump.” That includes the UN and Israel as well. Obama has had eight years to focus on cyber espionage and cyber warfare, yet somehow waits until the last 21 days of his presidency to make any kind of stand whatsoever? Somehow we knew not of those 35 spy/diplomats and two spy hubs prior?
Particularly with regard to Barack Hussein Obama, I don’t believe in coincidences. Up to this point Obama has had the grim determination of an asthmatic chihuahua regarding foreign hacking.
What’s conveniently forgotten, however, is that Mr Obama — using our taxpayer dollars — tried to purposely interfere in Israel’s 2015 elections in an attempt to specifically keep Benjamin Netanyahu out of office.
Here’s the point. Yes, the Russians and the Chinese are likely hacking the shite out of US government, corporate and intelligence interests perhaps on a daily basis. But we only become upset over it when Leftists, the Demorats, the DNC, John Podesta and Hillary Rodham Clinton are involved? Seriously? Ox? Gored?
This is the same CIA whose DNI, James Clapper, said this in public and LIED directly to each and every American by doing so.
The CIA would never politicize its findings or lean in any particular direction for White House purposes. Would it?
Again, why is Obama doing these things? As Spite House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz said recently: in essence, because he can.
It would appear the US under Mr Obama is conducting retaliatory measures on the Drudge Report, a focus of Obama, due to its publishing a wide array of articles dealing on and critical of Mr Obama himself. Matt Drudge Tweeted: “Is the US government attacking DRUDGE REPORT? Biggest DDoS since site’s inception. VERY suspicious routing [and timing],”
DDoS is shorthand for a Distributed Denial of Service. DDoS is a type of DOS (Distribution of Service) attack where multiple compromised systems, which are often infected with a Trojan, are used to target a single system causing a Denial of Service (DoS) attack.
Let’s not lose sight of the truth. Mr Obama has had eight years to deal or even attempt to address cyber attacks by Russia, China, Iran and North Korea. He has done nothing. The Chinese hacked into millions of OPM personnel records. Obama’s response? Meh. Your intimate federal personal records meant nothing to Obama because he was not personally politically affected. It held no sway over the election.
Ladies and gentlemen, I’m not that brilliant. I can find all of these things on the internet. The caveat is: if I want to.
Obama focuses only at the last second on these issues and concurrently decides it’s a wonderful time to do the things he’s had two terms to consider. To wit;
153 commutations, 78 pardons of convicted criminals (also including gun charges);
With regard to that last issue, 1.6 million acres, a greater area than the state of Delaware, have been converted to federal control and minimal public use. One man can, by the stroke of a pen, take state land without even one Congressional vote under the Antiquities Act of 1906, something Mr Obama has done on 29 prior occasions, more than any president other than FDR, in order to circumvent Congress on behalf of various environmental groups and interests. This is truly a land seizure by the federal government.
Obama is acting anti-democratically, unilaterally, via edicts from his personal Mount Olympus, despite the disagreements by members of his own party. He believes his decisions are untouchable and, in fact, some of them may actually be irreversible.
In his last moments: all because he can.
If Mr Obama is actually concerned about his so-called “legacy,” he is ill-prepared mentally to recognize the facts. His legacy is that of division on every political and social level imaginable. Sam Stein, for God’s sake, Senior Political Editor for the Huffington Post, said that Obama leaves the party “in a much worse position,” the “states are decimated,” he “lost control of the House and Senate,” the “governorships are decimated.” All factually correct.
Under Obama, the American voter has consistently rejected the stance of the Demorats (including Mr Obama) for the past eight years (2008 to 2016) as they lost63 seats in the House and 10 seats in the Senate. Republicans (from 2008 to 2016) gained900+ seats in state legislatures, along with 12 governorships across the US — meaning that 2/3rds of the governors in the nation are now Republicans.
As the Divider-In-Chief, Obama’s entire agenda revolved around striating people by class, sex, race, religion, earnings, region, state, city, county, clothing, music, laws, wages, healthcare, culture, employment, family, mode of transport, energy consumption, food, cable channels watched, media consumed, social settings, the way you view America, even your writings, statements and thoughts.
Then we have Mr Obama’s actions in his final presidential days. In my opinion, he is moving to isolate and denigrate Donald Trump, not Vladimir Putin.
The only conclusion one can draw is that of Sheriff Clarke’s reference above, Mr Obama is purposely defecating in the national punchbowl and Mr Trump’s coming punchbowl because he is shockingly immature, self-centered and, well, because he can.
As the grandmother once said on the commercial, “where’s the beef?” I ask: where’s the evidence?
I have seen nothing concrete. Nor do I see any agreement. It’s simplicity itself to constantly bleat “the Russians are coming, the Russians are coming” if you’re a Leftist, Demorat or the American Media Maggots. But are they really?
Let’s first hearken back to what Barack Hussein Obama said to Mitt Romney in 2012 concerning the Russians, thanks to Patrick Dollard.
On November 8th, Donald Trump became the president-elect of the United States, taking 306 electors to Clinton’s 232. This was confirmed on Monday, December 19, by taking all 270 electors required. Only six electors (instead of the “minimum of 37” promised) jumped electoral ship. But here’s the rub: four Democratic electors voted for someone other than Clinton, while two Republicans voted for someone other than Trump. Bottom line: the “elector revolt” hurt Clinton more than it hurt Trump.
In the roughly six weeks since the election, electors themselves have been threatened with death, injury, pressured, intimidated, had their personal information and addresses posted on the internet in order to sway a decision that was made over a month prior.
Now it would appear people want electors can be “lobbied” if you will, their votes influenced and — thanks to Michael Moore — purchased. Hillary Clinton actually lost more electors than Trump. Still, this sets a grim precedent. Leftists now insist that a small section of “very wise” or “very moral” persons should make the decisions.
I always ask: do the reverse. What would be happening now if Hillary had won the election and Trump supporters were acting in the same precise fashion as Clinton backers? There would be never-ending declarations of Brown Shirts and fascism.
More Leftists acted out regards the electors.
Then, as I said, let the Leftist cheating, hatred, violence and riots commence. I was not disappointed. As opposed to what the “fake news” said on the Left, 95% of the violence, burning and riots occurred at the veritable hands of the Left. The American Media Maggots did their level best to ignore or minimize this blatant fact.
Then came the demand for recounts, the declaration of “fake news,” the threat of electors turning and, of course, the Russians hacking the crap out of and influencing the election itself.
Let us go back in time, shall we, as evidenced and corroborated by the Mark I, Model I BZ Brain Housing Group (aided and abetted by Mr Gore’s internet) and examine the article that started it all, the December 9th story by the WashingtonPost.com:
Secret CIA assessment says Russia was trying to help Trump win White House
by Adam Entous, Ellen Nakashima & Greg Miller
The CIA has concluded in a secret assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency, rather than just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system, according to officials briefed on the matter.
Intelligence agencies have identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided WikiLeaks with thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and others, including Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, according to U.S. officials. Those officials described the individuals as actors known to the intelligence community and part of a wider Russian operation to boost Trump and hurt Clinton’s chances.
“It is the assessment of the intelligence community that Russia’s goal here was to favor one candidate over the other, to help Trump get elected,” said a senior U.S. official briefed on an intelligence presentation made to U.S. senators. “That’s the consensus view.”
This is the same consensus view mandating “global warming” to be real though, in truth, there is in fact no consensus.
Let me please state the obvious regarding the above WaPo story. This is a second-hand report from people whose identities are being shielded, describing what the CIA supposedly concluded and “laundering” it, if you will, through the WaPo. There is no evidence whatsoever provided or linked to these assertions and allegations. We know the CIA has no claim to having cornered the candor market, their duties in the past have been to disseminate disinformation.
What of the statement given by James Clapper on video where he was proven to have baldly lied to Congress and the American public?
James Clapper is the Director of National Intelligence and the boss of CIA Director John Brennan. This bespeaks volumes to me about the status of our intelligence community.
Leftists are saying that people who don’t believe the account of an account, unverified and with no evidence, are unpatriotic stooges for Russia and Vladimir Putin.
We apparently forget the much-vaunted “Russian Reset” promoted by Barack Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Taylor Armerding writes:
President Obama declared early in his first term that he could have a productive relationship with Russia.
In March 2009, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — you remember her, she was the most recent Democratic nominee for president — famously presented Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov with a “reset button.”
She said it “represents what President Obama and Vice President Biden and I have been saying and that is, ‘We want to reset our relationship.’ And so we will do it together.”
A few months later, the liberal news blog ThinkProgress declared that “the turnaround in US-Russian relations is a huge foreign policy accomplishment for the president.” Apparently it was unseemly to mention the Russian invasion of Georgia just a year earlier.
So don’t hand me the standard Leftist “occurs in a vacuum” shite about Obama and his sycophants. Let’s also remember this contact between Obama and Russian President Medvedev in 2012:
Then, in 2012, Obama was overheard telling then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev that he would have “more flexibility” to negotiate on things like missile defense after he was re-elected. Interesting that he was telling a Russian leader that he would win the election.
Medvedev assured Obama that he would pass this information along to the incoming president, Vladimir Putin.
Indeed, Obama in particular and Democrats in general haven’t had any qualms about “working with” the most brutal dictators in the world.
That was Obama being conciliatory and amenable to working with the Russians.
Was it not also, then, Hillary Rodham Clinton who allowed Russia to acquire a controlling share of US uranium for the betterment of the Clinton Foundation? Even the NYTimes wrote:
Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal
by Jo Becker and Mike McIntire
The headline on the website Pravda trumpeted President Vladimir V. Putin’s latest coup, its nationalistic fervor recalling an era when its precursor served as the official mouthpiece of the Kremlin: “Russian Nuclear Energy Conquers the World.”
The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.
But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one.
At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as Uranium One.
As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.
And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.
Call me wacky, but that sounds like not only a tad bit of corruption but Russia favoritism as well. As per normal, I could be horribly wrong.
GOOD then and somehow magically bad NOW? Perfectly fine to work with and praise Castro? Venezuela’s Chavez and Maduro? What about the smoochies slathered upon Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani? Pallet upon pallet, literally billions of dollars of cash delivered from the back of a US cargo plane in the dead of night to the Iranian leaders — something right out of a Tom Clancy novel? Obama’s all good with that. Now only Vladimir Putin is a “bad actor”?
Tucker Carson had a wonderful tete-a-tete with a professor over evidence of Russian hacking of the election who, essentially sums up his evidence solely as “I have said it, now it must be true.” As in: he had no evidence whatsoever. Please listen:
Is it impossible that Russia tried to hack the US? Of course not. Nations hack each other, these days, all the time. But where is the innate curiosity of the American Media Maggots who simply took the CIA at their word (as they seldom did in the past) and ran downfield with the ball? Did any of the American Media Maggot brands ask or, better yet, demand an accounting of the CIA for the report? Demand citations, evidence, names, sources, dates? No. I repeat: no. It fit their narrative about Donald Trump. So it stood.
“The 1980s want their foreign policy back” as documented in the video above? Really, Mr Obama? Leftists? That’s all you’ve got? This, remember, is the Obama who purposely did not arm anti-Russian factions in Ukraine, cooperated with Putin in Syria, ad nauseum.
Why has Putin emerged as the existential threat against the United States, that he is our arch-enemy now? Aren’t Obama and Demorats the same people who have been dovish and not hawkish on war and conflict in the past? Why Russia, why now?
What happened to “common ground” with Russia? What happened to embracing “glasnost”? What happened to America under Obama saying we will become the most respected nation on the planet?
Who may have been responsible for the Wikileaks emails acquired from HRC, Podesta and the DNC? Are we absolutely certain it’s “the Russians”?
Obama Crushes Conspiracy: No Evidence that Russia Tampered with Votes in Election
by Charlie Spiering
President Barack Obama emphatically denounced the conspiracy theory saying Russians successfully tampered with the American voting process.
I suggested it may have been the NSA. They had excellent reasons for doing so: dead personnel. I’m not the only one suggesting this; so did Judge Andrew Napolitano and other persons I’ve spoken to with intelligence contacts.
Further, didn’t the FBI itself say the Russians were not involved, as I wrote here — courtesy of the NY Times on October 31st?
Investigating Donald Trump, F.B.I. Sees No Clear Link to Russia
by Eric Lichtblau and Steven Lee Myers
WASHINGTON — For much of the summer, the F.B.I. pursued a widening investigation into a Russian role in the American presidential campaign. Agents scrutinized advisers close to Donald J. Trump, looked for financial connections with Russian financial figures, searched for those involved in hacking the computers of Democrats, and even chased a lead — which they ultimately came to doubt — about a possible secret channel of email communication from the Trump Organization to a Russian bank.
Law enforcement officials say that none of the investigations so far have found any conclusive or direct link between Mr. Trump and the Russian government. And even the hacking into Democratic emails, F.B.I. and intelligence officials now believe, was aimed at disrupting the presidential election rather than electing Mr. Trump.
A British diplomat, former ambassador to Uzbekistan, also says the Russians are not responsible. From TruthFeed.com:
British Diplomat “I’ve Met The Wikileaks Informant and They’re NOT Russian”
by Amy Moreno
Craig Murry is a former UK Ambassador to Uzbekistan and an associate of Assange.
I have watched incredulous as the CIA’s blatant lie has grown and grown as a media story – blatant because the CIA has made no attempt whatsoever to substantiate it. There is no Russian involvement in the leaks of emails showing Clinton’s corruption. Yes this rubbish has been the lead today in the Washington Post in the US and the Guardian here, and was the lead item on the BBC main news. I suspect it is leading the American broadcasts also.
A little simple logic demolishes the CIA’s claims. The CIA claim they “know the individuals” involved. Yet under Obama the USA has been absolutely ruthless in its persecution of whistleblowers, and its pursuit of foreign hackers through extradition. We are supposed to believe that in the most vital instance imaginable, an attempt by a foreign power to destabilise a US election, even though the CIA knows who the individuals are, nobody is going to be arrested or extradited, or (if in Russia) made subject to yet more banking and other restrictions against Russian individuals? Plainly it stinks. The anonymous source claims of “We know who it was, it was the Russians” are beneath contempt.
What of Julian Assange himself? What has he said about the “leaks”? From the UKDailyMail.com:
Wikileaks’ founder Julian Assange goes on the offensive over claims Russia was behind Clinton email hack, saying Kremlin is NOT its source
by Alana Goodman
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has flatly rejected U.S. intelligence claims that his organization received leaked Clinton emails from the Russian government
He says the allegations are part of a ‘foolish’ and ‘dangerous’ effort by Democrats to overturn Donald Trump’s election victory
Said group has a strict policy against commenting on sources, but he wanted to dispute allegations Wikileaks was involved in a Russian-orchestrated campaign
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange flatly rejected U.S. intelligence claims that his organization received leaked Clinton emails from the Russian government, saying the allegations are part of a ‘foolish’ and ‘dangerous’ effort by Democrats to overturn Donald Trump’s election victory.
‘Our source is not the Russian government,’ Assange told Sean Hannity on his radio show on Thursday, in his first U.S. interview since the election. ‘We have U.S. intelligence saying that say they know how we got our stuff and when we got it, and us saying we didn’t get it from a state.’
Assange said his group has a strict policy against commenting on its sources, but he wanted to dispute allegations that Wikileaks was involved in a Russian-orchestrated campaign to swing the election for Donald Trump.
Then there is this, a little-referenced article from TheNation.com:
Amazon, ‘The Washington Post’ and That $600 MIllion CIA Contract
by Greg Mitchell
It has been a tough few weeks for The Washington Post.
It’s been a rough couple days for The Washington Post.Word emerged that hackers invaded its internal system—for a few days, no less—all of its staffers had to change their passwords as the company tried to figure out how much data had been compromised.
Meanwhile, a petition campaign was launched related to news that Amazon, under the Post’s new owner, Jeff Bezos, recently secured a $600 million contract from the CIA.
Read that over again: the Washington Post, publisher of the article that gave the “Russian hack” meme legs for the Demorats, is in financial league with the CIA by way of the WaPo’s owner, Jeff Bezos.
Jeff Bezos is also a “good little Leftist” whose job it is to support by any means necessary the Demorats and Leftists of all stripes, to carry their water and their messages.
That’s at least twice what Bezos paid for the Post this year. Bezos recently disclosed that the company’s Web-services business is building a “private cloud” for the CIA to use for its data needs.
Well now. It didn’t. Nor was there any mention of this fact in their original article. That wasn’t an “oopsie” or a “mistake;” it was purposeful.
In a statement released by the Institute for Public Accuracy, media writer/author Robert McChesney observes:
When the main shareholder in one of the very largest corporations in the world benefits from a massive contract with the CIA on the one hand, and that same billionaire owns the Washington Post on the other hand, there are serious problems. The Post is unquestionably the political paper of record in the United States, and how it covers governance sets the agenda for the balance of the news media. Citizens need to know about this conflict of interest in the columns of the Post itself.
If some official enemy of the United States had a comparable situation—say the owner of the dominant newspaper in Caracas was getting $600 million in secretive contracts from the Maduro government—the Post itself would lead the howling chorus impaling that newspaper and that government for making a mockery of a free press. It is time for the Post to take a dose of its own medicine.”
What do you think? Is that not sufficient motivation to have the CIA do your bidding?
Let’s not lose sight of the bottom line. None of this would have occurred or been an issue had the Demorats, DNC and Hillary Rotten Clinton not been corrupt and rotten to the core.
Russia hacking the election — Russia influencing the election? Provide the clear evidence and the proof.
