Hillary Clinton PR firms BUSTED paying off journalists to push Trump-Russia fake news

by Alex Christoforou, from The Duran

The Gateway Pundit reported that on Tuesday, a federal court unsealed Fusion GPS’s bank records, showing that the PR smear machine paid off journalists to push the fake news “Trump Dossier”, that was the impetus for the entire Mueller special counsel.

Hillary Clinton paid Fusion GPS upwards of $12 million to put together the fictitious “dossier” that her Clinton mafia media machine would later use to drive a Trump-Russia collusion narrative.

Judge Richard Leon, a Bush-appointee, unsealed the records, showing 112 transactions involving Fusion GPS…

Establishment “Hack” Donna Brazile’s Crass Attempt to Rewrite the History of the 2016 Primary and Rebrand the Corrupt, Neoliberal DNC for 2018

by Scott Creighton

You must remember that the desire of the establishment hacks isn’t get you to believe 2+2=5. That would make you an idiot. What they want is for you to ACCEPT that 2+2 CAN EQUAL 5.

A week ago on Nov. 2nd, the establishment hack website Politico published a little sneak peak of Donna Brazile’s “ground breaking” new book “Hacks” on their website. It served it’s purpose. The public got all excited about the upcoming publication and the WWE-style “debate” began to rage between the establishment “hacks” who back Clinton and the defenders of Brazile who pretend they are somehow different from their detractors.

It’s a show. Nothing more.

Politico is an establishment rag who would never publish anything of substance that dared address the real problem with the un-Democratic Party today.

For that matter, Brazile’s book is being published by Hachette Book Group, one of the 5 big publishing houses here in the states (French owned but based out of New York city of course):

Its headquarters are located at 1290 Avenue of the Americas, Midtown Manhattan, New York City.[2] Hachette is considered one of the big-five publishing companies, along with Holtzbrinck/Macmillan, Penguin Random House, HarperCollins, and Simon & Schuster.[3]

Why would these massive, establishment-backing entities publish and promote a book that claims to be attacking the Clinton machine which serves their interest so well?

Perhaps because her book doesn’t do that at all. Instead what it may do is help them to remake the tarnished image of the corporatist left, the neoliberal “centrist” left, in time for the 2018 mid-term elections.

Let us be very clear about what happened in 2016. The corporate DNC stole the nomination from Sanders voters and had they not done that, we would be evaluating the first year of his presidency instead of Trump’s. That’s a fact that is unavoidable.

They didn’t merely “tip the scale”… they STOLE the nomination.

Everyone of her dogged supporters right now say Hillary COULDN’T have rigged the election because they are all run by the individual states and not the national DNC ergo… they could not possibly have “rigged” the election.

That is ridiculous. If you don’t think the state and local chairmen of the party would be willing and eager to appease the Clinton machine and the national DNC establishment by doing their bidding and helping them rig the primaries in favor of Killary, you are a moron.

Exit polling proved they were doing just that before they decided to stop allowing exit polling because it was exposing their theft of the primary.

Millions of Sanders voters were PURGED off the DNC registration rolls just prior to the election. They were forced to fill out absentee ballots which were shredded and never counted.

Rules were changed in states where caucuses were held so Hillary would “win” them and when the members reacted angrily to those acts, the DNC and their friends in the establishment media tried to make it look like Sanders supporters were violent thugs attacking poor innocent Debbie Wassserman Schultz.

The 2016 DNC primary was absolutely rigged and it was rigged by the leadership of the DNC in collusion with the heads of various state DNC chapters for one very specific reason… to keep someone with SLIGHTLY progressive opinions OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE.

The corporate DNC understood that Sanders polled much better against Trump than Hillary did. She was the most unpopular candidate they ever fielded. Period. Her corruption was legendary and her history of backing neoliberal economic ideology goes back to her days as a Goldwater Girl.

Hillary Clinton isn’t just a “right of Reagan” republican… she’s a neocon and as such, she was eventually BACKED by the vast majority of the neocons. The same neocons that made up the Bush/Cheney regime.

Killing off the Sanders bid for the White House became the DNC’s primary goal even coming before her “winning” the general election and you know that by how much time they spent alienating his progressive base. Yes, they called the angry Trump supporters “deplorable” but they were even harsher on Bernie bots if you recall.

To the neoliberals in the DNC, it would be better to have a neoliberal Trump in the White House than a SLIGHTLY progressive Sanders and so it made them work very hard and risk a lot to make sure that goal was met. Even if that meant burning down the un-Democratic Party in the process.

But what would they care? They’re republicans anyway.

Who is Peter Strzok and Why Does It Matter?

by Scott Creighton

News broke 7 days ago about a key investigator in the Robert Mueller inquiry being suddenly demoted to the Human Resources department of the FBI. The news broke, seemed profoundly interesting and then it disappeared off the radar like it never happened.

Just over a month ago, the Justice Department announced FBI Section Chief Peter Strzok would be joining their investigation into the Trump campaign “collusion” with the Russian’s story. Strzok was a high ranking investigator with a history of being either in charge of or assisting on some very high profile cases:

July 13, 2017 – “Justice Department Special Counsel Robert Mueller has brought on Peter Strzok, a senior FBI official who oversaw the Hillary Clinton email investigation, to help manage his investigation into Russian election meddling, according to two US officials briefed on the matter.

Strzok helped oversee the beginnings of the Russia probe last summer at the FBI.” CNN

So Strzok was not only the lead investigator looking into Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a private email server while she was Sec. of State, but he was ALSO helping to head-up the FBI’s investigation into the alleged Trump “collusion” story.

That’s some high-powered investigations at the time, especially when you consider the lengths to which the Obama administration and the Justice Department went through in order to make sure Hillary was ordained in November of 2016.

But then something happened:

Aug. 16 2017 – “One of the FBI‘s top investigators, tapped by special counsel Robert Mueller just weeks ago to help lead the probe of Russian meddling in last year’s presidential election, has left Mueller’s team, sources tell ABC News.

The recent departure of the FBI veteran, Peter Strzok, is the first known hitch in a secretive probe that, by all public accounts, is charging full steam ahead…

It’s unclear why Strzok stepped away from Mueller’s team

As chief of the FBI’s counterespionage section last year, he helped oversee the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was the secretary of state

Within weeks of the end of the Clinton probe, Strzok found his office facing a new challenge: investigating Russia’s alleged efforts to influence last year’s presidential election

(He) is now working for the FBI’s human resources divisionABC News

This is a remarkable demotion for someone with so much access to extremely dangerous information. It has been reported that it is very rare for someone so high ranking to be demoted in this way, but it has happened and when it has in the past the point it to keep a subject on the payroll while limiting their access to intelligence.

In short, the neutered Peter Strzok after he was a key player in their efforts to white wash Hillary’s criminal background, while trying their best to fabricate one for her opponent.

Right around the same time seven days ago, this little gem appeared:

Aug. 16 2017 – “The FBI has “reopened” its consideration of a request for records on the infamous 2016 tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton, the group behind that request told Fox News” Fox News

Was Strzok struck down because they wanted to avoid the appearance of still more collusion between the Justice Department and the Clinton criminal regime or were they concerned he might leak something in a last ditch effort to protect them?

It’s hard too say but these two events are probably not merely a coincidence.

In order to better understand what has just happened under the radar, you have to go back and take an honest look at the timeline of events that unfolded during what I consider the most corrupt election process this country has ever suffered from. And we are suffering.

Say what you will about Bernie Sanders (and I have said plenty about that corrupt, sheep-dogging, war-supporting, lying piece of crap) the Clinton campaign stole the nomination from him and more importantly, his supporters. That is an UNDENIABLE fact.

Understanding that very simple fact should make it easier for you to digest what I am about to tell you:

Reality Winner “Leak” DOES NOT Prove Russian Hacking: it’s COVER for DNC Purging of Voter Rolls/Promotes Omidyar’s Turbo Vote Project

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: All of the following detail situations involving the DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY… NOT the general election of 2016. And ALL of them involve Sanders supporters being purged from voter rolls… not Clinton.

(For a good assessment of how trustworthy The Intercept is regarding their handling of this “leak”, go over to Moon of Alabama blog. The way they claim the leaker, Reality Winner, was exposed is remarkably contrived. Either that or they are idiots over at The Intercept.)

Three days before James Comey is set to testify before congress and in all likelihood dispel a good deal of the bogus “Russia Owns Donald Trump” story, four writers at The Intercept decided to publish a new 5-page “leak” from something called “Reality Leigh Winner” which purports to show Russia not only interfered with the election, but “hacked” it as well, “stealing” the election from Queen Hillary.

Or at least, that’s how the corporate media destabilization campaign is presenting the story.

“Somebody who leaks documents against laws has got to suffer the consequences” (Tim) Kaine said. “But the American public is also entitled to know the degree to which Russia invaded the election to take the election away from American voters.”

Kaine noted he knew of no evidence that showed Russia affected machine voting totals and said he was referring to intelligence assessments that Russia had acted to influence the election.” CNN

The “leaked” document itself is devoid of any hard evidence. There are no files, no documents, no hard evidence of any kind to support the claims made in the document and by those looking to promote the “Hillary didn’t really lose” subplot to the 2016 election. It comes from Reality Leigh Winner, a contractor with Pluribus International Corporation in Georgia who now stands accused of “removing classified material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet,”

The “leak” is an assessment complete with Power Point slides, created by someone in the NSA… supposedly. Though the first source The Intercept approached for verification of the document concluded it was fake, reportedly they found some other “government official” who says it’s real. That, at least, according to The Intercept and other such Trump-bashing outlets like CNN for example.

 

Clearly, The Intercept went out of their way to “accidentally” expose the leaker.

Though the document itself concludes “It is unknown whether the aforementioned spear-phishing deployment successfully compromised the intended victims, and what potential data could have been accessed by the cyber actor,” that has not stopped folks like Tim Kaine from leaping to vastly different conclusions about Russia “invading” our precious elections.

The relative truth of the claims made in this assessment and those of the regime change activists working within the US right now is evident in the first foundational slide from the leak published by The Intercept. Remarkably (or maybe not since it’s owned by globalist Pierre Omidyar who set up The Intercept to profit from the other fake leaks from “Edward Snowden”) none of the four intrepid “reporters” working on this article seems to have noticed the one glaring weakness which the slide exposes:

IF the rest of the report’s conclusions (which as you see, are inconclusive at best) are accurate, if someone did attempt to gain information and access to various privately maintained voter registration systems (which we CLEARLY shouldn’t be using in the first place) the ENTIRE CONNECTION to Russia is a “judgement” or “probable”

I mean it says so RIGHT THERE ON THE DAMN OFFICIAL “LEAK”

The Declassified Russian Hacking “Intelligence” Report is Devoid of Any Evidence and Apparently Based on Previous Lies

by Scott Creighton

Yesterday (Friday Jan. 6th 2017) around 1pm, the Department of National Intelligence released their declassified report (PDF) on the Russian hacking story or the Russian “influence” story that has been taking shape here in the States surrounding Hillary Clinton’s crash and burn presidential campaign of 2016. At about the same time, a man got off a plane in Florida and took a gun from his checked bag and opened fire on people in the baggage claim area of an airport, emptying 3 clips before lying down on the ground and waiting to be arrested. That man claimed earlier that the CIA had been trying to force him to watch “ISIS” videos.

Each and every page of the declassified report contains in the top header an official disclaimer of sorts which reads:

“This report is a declassified version of a highly classified assessment; its conclusions are identical to those in the highly classified assessment but this version does not include the full supporting information on key elements of the influence campaign.”

Key here is the fact that the report contains no facts. None. Zip. Zilch. No evidence reported in the report whatsoever.

Also key is the word “assessment” and in the beginning of the declassified report, they take the time to explain that term:

“When Intelligence Community analysts use words such as “we assess” or “we judge,” they are conveying an analytic assessment or judgment. Some analytic judgments are based directly on collected information; others rest on previous judgments, which serve as building blocks in rigorous analysis

“(O)thers rest on previous judgements”. Got that? No evidence reported in this report and they tell you right off the bat that in all likelihood, this “assessment” is based on “previous” assessment, which as we all know, were bullshit. “Grizzly steppe” anyone?

Here is a little glimpse into some of those “previous judgements”:

this report is provided “as is” for informational purposes only. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) does not provide any warranties of any kind regarding any information contained within.”

The current assessment based in part on previous assessments which the intelligence services provide no “warranties of any kind” regarding the information they provided.

Got that? New bullshit based on piles of older, baseless bullshit.

Buried deep in various articles about the new release we find a little rational thought on this evidence. That of course is buried under tons of regurgitated, unsubstantiated accusations leveled at Vladamir Putin, Guccifer 2.0 and DCLeaks.

The report contains scant information on attribution
That may not be enough for some critics, who have been publicly calling on the intelligence community to release more information explaining how it linked hacking operations to Russia” The Verge

And by “scant information” they mean “no information”

“Some critics” may not find their baseless accusations to be “enough” to jump on the New McCarthyism bandwagon. How unfortunate. But apparently the Verge doesn’t mind Megaphoning Mockingbird fake news:
