Fresh from bitch-slapping virus, Trump crushes Russia Hoax

AND it’s only Wednesday. This has become a red-letter week in US politics and a humiliating one for the media. The biggest scandal in American history will now have yet more words of obloquy and refutation chiselled on its headstone following the declassification of notes penned by former CIA Director John Brennan:

Top U.S. intelligence officials were so concerned heading into the 2016 election that the Russians were aware of and potentially manipulating Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s plans to smear Donald Trump as a Russian agent that they personally briefed President Barack Obama on the matter, newly declassified Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) documents show. CIA officials also requested that the FBI investigate Russian knowledge of the Clinton campaign’s collusion smear operation.

Newly declassified handwritten notes from former CIA Director John Brennan show that the U.S. intelligence community knew in 2016 that Russian intelligence was actively monitoring, and potentially injecting disinformation into, Clinton’s anti-Trump collusion narrative.

The intelligence concerning Russia’s knowledge of Clinton’s campaign plans was so concerning to Brennan and other national security officials that they personally informed Obama of the matter in the Oval Office in the summer of 2016. The handwritten notes from Brennan were declassified by Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe and provided to Congress on Tuesday afternoon.

According to the declassified notes, Brennan and the U.S. intelligence community knew months prior to the 2016 election that the collusion smear was the result of a campaign operation hatched by the campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

 
Notes or no, accusations that Donald Trump colluded with the Kremlin were destroyed not long after they were made. The scandal was kept rosy-cheeked well beyond death by the Democrat Party and ‘journalists’ – like the rotten scraps of Lenin’s worthless carcass were preserved by the USSR’s best mannequin dressers for 75 years. Lying in state (and through their teeth). No other President could have withstood such an onslaught of lies and malicious sub-plots crafted daily by crooked officials, reporters and senior Democrats. Trump won because he wouldn’t quit. The Bush crowd would have sued for peace. Trump’s escalation policy was a keen insight into the psychology of the Hoaxers: the more riled, embarrassed and fearful of consequences they perforce became, the more they exposed themselves as partisan lunatics. Pelosi, Biden, Schumer, Comey, Brennan, Clapper and all the rest believed complexity and confusion were their allies but that was a fatal error. Complexity and confusion were turned against them.

We’re getting additional insight into Russian activities from [REDACTED]. CITE [summarizing] alleged approved by Hillary Clinton a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisers to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security service.”

John Brennan

 
The Russia Hoax never resonated with the public; voters knew the whole thing was a risible scam being ginned up by sore losers – but it did cause real damage. Damage to democracy and the rule of law, first and foremost, but also to innocents like General Mike Flynn. Now we know for sure (again) that the Hoax was the invention of Hillary Clinton who paid Russian spies – enemies of the United States – for a forged dossier re-purposed later to rig FISA warrants and justify the illegal surveillance of Donald Trump. Thereafter, the Hoax was prosecuted by Barack Obama and the political/media rent boys who were happy to bring down an administration to protect and please him. Some of the Brennan notes are redacted, including an answer to the question posed by Obama of whether or not there was evidence for collaboration between the Trump campaign and Russia. If you suspect it was blacked out because the answer was no, I suspect you’re right.

UPDATE: The President authorises declassification of “any and all” Russia Hoax documents.

    How will the MSM react?
    Try to smother it by simply ignoring it?
    Vague headlines like: “Revelations of Russian interference in 2016 election” followed by so much obfuscation that the lede is totally buried, hoping that people assume Trump was at fault?

    the Hoax was prosecuted by Barack Obama and the political/media rent boys who were happy to bring down an administration to protect and please him.

    Mostly correct.

    Obama could not resist spying on Trump … who he hated given the birther saga [Trump was shaking out Obama’s lies to get into Harvard ]. Actually I’d say he was spying [using FBI/CIA etc resources] on everyone including Bernie!

    The dossier just provided a “legal” way to justify the spying. And I reckon that the dossier / FISA approval was the “insurance” to cover the spying, and not the coup activity.

    It is symptomatic on the left that they can not admit error and will double down indefinitely – to death and beyond. So once they started spying, they then escalated and escalated- and everything that ensued [discrediting and getting rid of Flynn (who knew!), Muller investigation, procedural accusations against Manafort, Cohen, Padapop, Stone, impeachment etc) is just distraction monkeys to get to the next election… where hopefully everything will get quashed (with the right result).

    Trump today went ballistic on his tweets. Why? … [Conspiracy theory alert!] What if he found out that the COVID infection sweeping everyone in the Whitehouse inner circle … was intentional! Life is short.

    Democrats look like they have been taking lessons from Wile E Coyote. ACME political scam anybody?

    Meep meep!

    When Trump said to Clinton in the 2016 debate “You’d be in jail” we all thought it was hyperbole.

    Do they have leg chains that cater for cankles?

    7 Oct: news.com.au: (Australian Treasurer) Josh Frydenberg distances himself from Donald Trump over COVID-19 claims
    Treasurer Josh Frydenberg has moved to distance himself with the US President, after his big call comparing COVID-19 with the common flu.
    by Samantha Maiden
    He once called US President Donald Trump a “dropkick” and his view clearly hasn’t changed when it comes to the COVID-stricken septuagenarian’s big call comparing the virus with the common flu…

    Network Ten’s Peter van Onselen, asked Mr Frydenberg if he agreed with the US President’s views after the traditional post-budget speech in Canberra…
    “I’m going to leave the commentary on other nations’ political systems to you,” he said.
    “What I will say, is that we take COVID-19 very seriously. It’s a deadly virus. And it’s taken lives and ***it doesn’t discriminate between age groups. Doesn’t discriminate between race or religion or backgrounds and that is why we have placed health measures first and foremost in our response and those health measures have been working with – as we partner with the states in that response.”…

    When he was then prodded on Mr Trump’s Twitter spree comparing COVID-19 with the flu, Mr Frydenberg agreed it wasn’t responsible.
    “Well, you won’t see Scott Morrison putting out those sort of messages,” the Treasurer said.
    “What Scott Morrison, what Greg Hunt, what myself and others have always said is that this virus is – is deadly and it‘s is creating a massive health and economic challenge for us and we put the health of all Australians first and that is what we have done and the result is that as a nation we have been able to suppress the virus very successful to date.”

    Four years ago, Mr Frydenberg branded then US presidential hopeful Donald Trump a dropkick and said his remarks about women were indefensible.
    “Back on (ABC program) Q&A over a year ago I called him a dropkick and I haven‘t seen a reason to back away from those comments,” he said.

    vile, and factually incorrect on a number of points.

    Josh has had a protected life so that anyone who has broader experience and pushes the logic of the protected elite such as Josh has to be labelled a “Drop Kick”. Otherwise it is Josh that is the drop kick for not understanding. And Josh doesn’t understand. Well at least note yet.Maybe when he grows up.

  11. Nicholas (Unlicensed Joker) Gray

    Well, who can blame Hillary? Wasn’t Trump promising to put her in jail? And when will that imaginary wall with Mexico be built?

    Yep. Or they just say nothing at all about things unspinnable.

  14. It is hilarious how all-in the Lad is for Trump. It has been a long time since he applied any skepticism whatsoever to anything Trump did or stands for.

    Monty, have you ever considered the possibility that the Lad is on the money?

    According to the declassified notes, Brennan and the U.S. intelligence community knew months prior to the 2016 election that the collusion smear was the result of a campaign operation hatched by the campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

    The paper trail that intelligence agency created was to ensure their control over a Clinton presidency. In the hands of the wrong president it could be disastrous.
    What to do then?

    Trump will ask the same question of Hiden at the next debate.

    Trump is so obvious and open about what he does, he’s the greatest con man of the century. Only dumb people get taken in by him. As for those who are intelligent enough to know what he is and yet still support him because he is on their side… history will judge them harshly.

    “What I will say, is that we take COVID-19 very seriously. It’s a deadly virus. And it’s taken lives and it doesn’t discriminate between age groups”

    Why would Freudenberg make such a false statement?
    Is that what he genuinely believes?
    The truth is that President Trump’s qualified statement was essentially true, if not somewhat misleading. If the populations to which he referred are defined by age groups, then his statement is simply true.
    The way the deadliness of COVID-19 discriminates between age groups must be taken seriously.
    An Australian Treasurer who doesn’t take that age-discrimination seriously deserves to be dropkicked.

    Josh was more than just the dutiful author for Turbull’s disastrous NEG, the policy rammed through the party room that quickly split the ranks, and finally destroyed Turnbull’s leadership. Josh was a full-on believer. He has kept quiet ever since. To say Josh is not fully on board with the Coalition’s current energy and renewable policies is an understatement.

    From what we’re seeing, the only real difference between this virus and the seasonal ‘flu, is that it targets the elderly, the already frail and immune-compromised, the obese and those with other co-morbidities.

    It specifically is NOT “deadly” to the young (up to and including those in their 50s and 60s, or even in their 70s if Trump’s experience is indicative), the fit and well, or those with robust immune systems.

    So all of this bullshit they’ve been going on with, all this waste, all this destruction of the economy and people’s lives, has been for a lie. And now they lie even more!

    Has everyone been fooled by images from China in January and February, have governments been scared out of their wits and our wealth and freedom, by what may well be false images? Or do they know it’s all crap, and are enjoying the ride?

    Angry doesn’t even begin to cover what I feel!

    Josh is a superb example of the ‘intelligent, yet idiot’. Although I’m not entirely convinced of the intelligent bit.

  36. The Russia hoax isn’t about personal hatred of Donald Trump or losing elections or even worrying about legacies.
    It’s about covering up weapons running from Libya to Syria and many of the US made shoulder mounted missiles (MANPADS) ending up in the hands of Al Qaeda in Afghanistan who went on to bring down the most US aircraft since the Vietnam war, including the helicopter of the Seal Team 6 group killing 26 members.

    It’s about covering up the criminal activity of the CIA, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her boss Barack Obama. Criminality that would attract a trip to the Hague and even hanging in the US.

    Once you understand the seriousness of the crimes, you will understand why they risked everything to cover them up.

  37. Kneel

    “The paper trail that intelligence agency created was to ensure their control over a Clinton presidency. “

    And further, to protect the guilty in case – as is now happening – it is becoming public.
    Brennan basically telegraphed this to leading Dem swamp creatures when he wrote an editorial in the NYT – he kept all dates vague (as in “early spring”, “near the end of June” etc) except one. 28th July 2016. When he briefed Obama about Hillary creating “Russia collusion” out of thin air (although he never mentioned anything actually said or what it was really about).

    Had Hillary won in 2016, she would have “owed” Brennan for helping create the misinformation that allowed it and it all would have been wrapped in cling film, sealed in concrete and nuked from space. If Trump won, he had full cover and could lay the blame squarely on someone else. As I said before, fallbacks for fallbacks, just as you’d expect of a lifelong CIA employee.

    But the juiciest part is yet to appear in the MSM – that the Office of National Assessment (ONA – a part of US DoD) funded Halper to spy on team Trump before, during and after the election. They paid him hundreds of thousands for his “insight” into Russian collusion, who was involved etc. Since we now know the whole collusion thing was a party-political smear job, do you imagine too many US taxpayers would be happy to know that their hard-earned was being spent on such partisan talking point rubbish? Who authorised this spend – Obama directly himself, or Hillary as Sec State, or some swamp rat in DoD? This may be the real undoing of Hillary and/or Barack – using taxpayer funds for party political purposes is quite a big no-no.

    “Trump is so obvious and open about what he does, he’s the greatest con man of the century.”

    Ah yes – fancy that, eh Monty? A politician who at least tries to keep all his promises; one that doesn’t accept corporate donations; one that is interested in making life better for the middle class, PoC and women with real, working policies; one that asks the basic, obvious questions that everyone expects a leader to ask, but no other ever does; one who says “yes, it put me in danger, but that is the job and that is what is needed, so that is what I did” instead of cowering in his basement like Biden.

    “…open about what he does…” – compared to Biden and co, he’s not just a genius, he’s as honest as the day is long. Many of his appointments may have seemed odd at first, however he has learnt and now we are seeing some of the most brilliant appointments to difficult positions you could imagine – and he is not in any way interested in micro-managing everything, he’ll just find the best people he can and get out of the way while they do their stuff, and try to keep the political heat away from them. What a great person to work for he would be – a real leader that places trust and confidence in you, and takes the heat while you fix what needs fixing. I’m there – well, I would be there in a heart-beat if he were to ask me (which he wouldn’t, but anyway…).

    This is about 45 minutes, but it includes the story of how a military medico became the whitehouse doctor (starting under Bush 2 and going through Obama and into Trump), then got proposed to lead the VA department, and how the deep state slimed him to the disbelief of even rusted-on Democrats that knew him from his WH duties. It gives you some insight into how Trump does things and why he makes the appointments he does, well worth your time if such interests you. Sure seems like very open, honest and straightforward answers:

    “How will the MSM react?”

    The same way they always do when it is beyond hope of being spun to the advantage of the left – the “story” will be about the right’s reaction to it. The actual criminality/perversion/whatever will be secondary to “Republicans Pounce on …” and how bad those right-wingers are for destroying Obama’s “legacy” – yes, despite the fact they did it to themselves, it’s all those bad people that wont let them sweep it under the carpet, they’re the evil ones!
