SEYMOUR HERSH BLASTS MEDIA FOR UNCRITICALLY PROMOTING RUSSIAN HACKING STORY

You need to also talk about what they DIDN’T cover:

I’ve had my issues with foundation-funded outlet Alternet for a lot of years. I am actually banned from their website. I guess they never figured out how to ban criticism from Facebook…

RE: Trump’s Fight with the CIA Is a Danger to All of Us

The CIA’s covert wars on Russia and its allies have been a danger to us all. An existential threat. We have been at the brink of nuclear war this year.

How can Morley ignore the current state of the world as he delves into this minor issue about unproven allegations from CIA spooks? How much of this article is spin?

The bulk of it is a single CIA officer’s opinions.

I’ve come across Jefferson Morley before, as he investigates the JFK hit, while never acknowledging the glaringly obvious: the CIA killed Kennedy.

He goes out of his way to throw in a 9/11 reference, but never acknowledges the Treason at the heart of the plot: CIA knew Al Qaeda cells were inside the USA for 16 months! This was admitted in a 2005 CIA Inspector General report, and Richard Clarke has gone out of his way to point a finger at George Tenet. Morley completely ignores the actual CIA malfeasance which allowed the 9/11 attacks to occur at all, and instead harps on the well known (limited hangout ) presidential daily brief, which is the equivalent of a magician waving a colorful hankerchief around.

If Morley would like to go toe to toe over the 9/11 attacks, my schedule is wide open.

Assange blasts ’embarrassing’ ODNI report, says ‘no evidence’ given

[Julian Assange] described the ODNI’s report as containing “zero evidentiary weight” and being “deliberately political.”

“If our sources were a state we would have a lot less concern in attempting to protect them,” he said, adding that he would not provide additional information as this could lead to their identification.

RT covers the other side. Does your favorite pet corporate “news?”

Stream ended. Anyone have the video?

Democrats and their apologists have proven to be far more pathetic than previously witnessed. A quasi-fascist nationalism has erupted, and the blind rush to conflate Donald Trump with Russia has expanded the envelope of delusion.

What is it they claim now? And based on what actual evidence?

The CIA floated a conspiracy theory to undermine Trump in the Electoral College, a Hail Mary pass after the election upset. Yes, a conspiracy theory, the dangerous kind that puts nuclear-armed nations at each other’s throats.

“And yet, there is skepticism within the American government, particularly at the F.B.I., that this evidence adds up to proof that the Russians had the specific objective of getting Mr. Trump elected.” -NY Times, Dec. 11, 2016

What’s more, that’s still the case!

“Officials reiterated that there is no single intercepted communication that qualifies as a ‘smoking gun’ on Russia’s intention to benefit Trump’s candidacy or to claim credit for doing so.” -CNN, Jan. 6, 2017

“Reiterated” because the message is clearly not getting through the solid wall of hysteria.

That plain truth is clearly the opposite of the propaganda blitzkrieg we have just witnessed, from Saturday Night Live to the usual suspects at the foundation-funded left-leaning propaganda complex, those “gatekeepers.” Nor to the nation’s political cartoonists, who have led the charge to conflate Trump with Vladimir Putin, even though none of us has seen a single shred of credible evidence. The propaganda tsunami has been so voluminous that it’s difficult to recall a previous comparable situation. Only the false ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction’ bamboozle comes to mind, and we know how that worked out; don’t we?

Two Minutes’ Hate

The Democrats have become feral. Irrationally lashing out in every direction, the CIA’s conspiracy theory has had the effect that many of those anti-conspiracy theory psycho-babble articles had warned us about! #irony

But psychology remains at the core of it all, and it is the psychology of blaming others to avoid taking personal responsibility for negative outcomes. Taking cues from Hillary Clinton herself, there must be Russians hiding under the bed. Of course that’s the reason people supported Trump and not glorious Hillary. The alternative is too horrible for them to entertain.

What is obscured is the contorted logic that Russia allegedly defeated Clinton by revealing The Truth about her own corruption and lies, her private position versus public position. Impossible to make the case that the Russians are lying, the Democratic Party apologists’ only response has been to change the focus of the outrage toward killing the messenger. It’s a cheap magic trick, and we’ve seen this tiresome show before.

Most of the corporate US “news” media has bought into this conspiracy theory. It’s always a good idea in the mainstream to beat up on Russia, especially when the CIA takes point. There is no downside for jumping on that bandwagon. But “news” is now relegated to an empty label requiring quotation marks, because these outlets refuse to cover the full story: WikiLeaks.

There is no ambiguity at all regarding Julian Assange and Craig Murray’s position.

“Ex-British ambassador who is now a WikiLeaks operative claims Russia did NOT provide Clinton emails — they were handed over to him at a D.C. park by an intermediary for ‘disgusted’ Democratic whistleblowers” -UK Daily Mail, Dec. 14, 2016

How can any American argue that Murray and Wikileaks’ revelations are not newsworthy? They are the publishers of the emails! So, that story must have appeared on the front pages of every US newspaper and on the 24/7 cable news barrage; no?

Censorship is clearly at play here. Any “news” article that covers the CIA’s conspiracy theory but omits the WikiLeaks counter-narrative is not journalism at all, and clearly violates basic journalistic ethics.

The Blackest Kettle Around

Psychological projection is when you accuse others of doing what you yourself do. It happens quite a bit more than people realize. Would the Russians be justified in working against a candidate who threatened to escalate a hot war in Syria against their own military and national security interests?

I’ll not belabor America’s bloodstained imperial record of overthrowing legitimate democracies, like Iran in 1953 or Chile in 1973. But more recent events should not be avoided, as we assess what’s really going on here in the intelligence sector’s assault on Russia and Putin and Trump.

What America did to Ukraine should be first and foremost, as we talk about foreign interference in the democratic processes of sovereign nations. In 2004 US agencies were exposed for their parts in a soft coup, or “color revolution.”

Buried in their zillionth propaganda piece is this nugget:

Officials reiterated that there is no single intercepted communication that qualifies as a “smoking gun” on Russia’s intention to benefit Trump’s candidacy or to claim credit for doing so.

Read that again in context, with all those bogus headlines exclaiming that it’s already a fact, established, and incontrovertible.

Then you’ll start to understand how propaganda works today in Amerika.
