It’s now all-bullshit all the time.

Cheap Trump/Rubio Venezuela Aid PR Stunt

The Venezuelan government has an entirely rational reason to suspect the US would use humanitarian aid as a cover to smuggle in weapons to foment armed conflict: The person running quarterback for Trump on the current Venezuela operation, Elliot Abrams, literally did just that 30 years ago.

From the first two paragraphs (emphasis added) of a 1987AP/New York Times article on Elliott Abrams, “Abrams Denies Wrongdoing in Shipping Arms to Contras” (8/17/87—h/t Kevin Gosztola):

Assistant Secretary of State Elliott Abrams has defended his role in authorizing the shipment of weapons on a humanitarian aid flight to Nicaraguan rebels, saying the operation was ”strictly by the book.”

Mr. Abrams spoke at a news conference Saturday in response to statements by Robert Duemling, former head of the State Department’s Nicaraguan humanitarian assistance office, who said he had twice ordered planes to shuttle weapons for the Contras on aid planes at Mr. Abrams’ direction in early 1986.

This CIA clown gets fired from LATIMES for being a propagandist for the deep state, and goes right to work for Associated Press and then becomes MSNBC’s “National Security Correspondent!”

Say what!!!

This is a must-see, explosive investigation by Jimmy Dore and co.

Ken Dilanian, a former staff writer for the newspaper chain that includes the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune, had a “closely collaborative relationship with the CIA,” according to the article, published Thursday by the online news site the Intercept.

There is a plague of fake news. Der Spiegel just fired a serial fabricator. Now even left foundation-funded darling Mother Jones is embroiled in a scandal:
