New York Times: Salman Abedi Met with “ISIS™” Says Secret Sources Providing Zero Evidence

by Scott Creighton

Last year Hillary Clinton’s campaign crumbled largely because of her extreme dishonesty, criminality and the machinations of those around her, specifically the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and John Podesta. Much of it was brought to light by federal and congressional investigations into her use of an illegal private server while she was Secretary of State, a move she made deliberately (not a “mistake”) to shield herself from future prosecution. But still more of the evidence that she was unfit to serve as president came from leaks from various unknown sources via DCLeaks, Wikileaks and other publications. In those cases, yes, the leakers or “sources” were unknown, but the evidence was laid out for all too see and not one of the leaked emails or documents were ever proven to have been falsified. In fact, few if any were ever even question by those parties associated with them.

Though the sources were anonymous, the evidence was rock solid and the damage was clear: the “most qualified candidate for the office of all time” lost her race to a bloviating reality TV star who had once been recorded as saying he liked grabbing women by their genitalia when he met them.

Today, it seems, our complicit media plays by a different set of rules:

Graham: We can’t go forward as a nation ‘until we punish Russia’

(Neocon war-monger Lindsey Graham channels fake progressive New McCarthyite Rachel Maddow calling for Trump to “punish” Russia for doing NOTHING. Says they didn’t change outcome of election but “they tried’ so they must be punished. And like Hillary and Madcow, he doesn’t need any stinking proof. What Russia did actually do is start the last stage of the Turkish Stream pipeline and prevent us, so far, from regime changing Turkey. THAT is what Russia did and THAT is why Clinton, Graham and Maddow want blood.)

from The Hill

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday said the Russians need to be punished for their meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

“I do not believe we can go forward as a nation until we punish Russia,” he said during an interview on NBC’s “Meet The Press.”

Graham said he does not need additional proof to confirm that Moscow attempted to hack the election.

“I’m 1,000 percent certain that the Russians interfered in our election,” he said.

“They did try to undercut Clinton. I don’t think they changed the outcome,” he said of the presidential vote that put President Trump in office. “Russia didn’t change the outcome of the election but they sure as hell tried and I want to punish the Russians and I hope the president will see their interference as a threat to our democracy.”

Graham said he has bipartisan support for sanctions against Russia for interfering in the presidential election.

“And my goal is to put it on the president’s desk and I hope he would embrace it,” he said…

Maxine Waters Loses Her Mind to “Anti-Russia Dementia” – Like the Rest of the Black Caucus

by Glen Ford, from BAR

When Maxine Waters goes gung-ho crazy for the War Party, it tells us that the Black political class — overwhelmingly Democrats — are utterly useless to any movement for peace and social justice. In the throes of a terminal case of “Anti-Russia Dementia,” otherwise known as “Putin Derangement Syndrome,” the California congresswoman told a Tax March crowd in front of the U.S. Capitol that President Trump and Russia’s Vladimir Putin somehow conspired to arrange both the chemical event that killed dozens in northern Syria and the U.S. missile strike on a Syrian military airfield that followed. In a interview with a Huffington Post reporter, Waters said:

“I don’t believe there’s any real tension” between Trump and Putin. “I think they’re putting on a show. And I think Putin is gonna come back and make it look as if he’s gonna hold the line somewhat on Syria now, and then want something in exchange for that — and that exchange is, lift the sanctions.”

Waters has clearly lost her mind, her brain operating at the cartoon level. But, her mental and moral disintegration differs only in degree from that of the Congressional Black Caucus as a body, which has been drifting to the dark side on war ever since the First Black President got his hands on the nuclear button. Even Barbara Lee, the only member of Congress to vote against the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, appears to accept the manifestly false allegation that the Syrian military used chemical weapons in al-Qaida controlled Idlib province. She demands only that the U.S. Congress be allowed to play its part in the aggression…

Not “Ridiculous Nonsense” Anymore: Yes, British Intelligence and Others Did Spy on Trump Campaign Using the 14 Eyes Program

by Scott Creighton

After listening to a month’s worth of the complicit media yelling their outrage at Sean Spicer, Devin Nunes, Judge Napolitano, Donald Trump and all the other “conspiracy theorists” (myself included) who dared suggest it was even slightly possible that British intelligence agencies used the 5 Eyes program to spy on the Trump campaign staff in the lead-up to the election and then share that information with the Obama administration (who at the time was working as a surrogate for the Hillary team) today we have confirmation that, yes, GCHQ and other British intel services did in fact spy on team Trump and share the information they collected with Obama. And it predates the “Russian hacking” bull crap.

The narrative being sculpted is that the Brits were simply assisting in the ongoing investigation into the “Russian hacking” story but the truth is, their intel dates back to late 2015… long before the “Russian hacking” narrative.

The Guardian, who broke this story, say “It is understood that GCHQ was at no point carrying out a targeted operation against Trump or his team or proactively seeking information..” and that is it in terms of providing any substantial evidence at all that they weren’t deliberately targeting the Trump campaign staff during the election process looking for juicy info they could feed Obama and American intelligence services to use against him in the election.

Turns out, a number of foreign agencies had their hands in the effort to thwart the Trump candidacy and Russia wasn’t one of them.
