Politically aware people know that it’s customary to release “bad news” right before a long holiday weekend so it won’t draw as much attention, which is exactly what the New York Times and Associated Press did last Thursday and Friday! They finally admitted that their previous reporting that all seventeen American intelligence agencies agreed that Russia had “hacked” the DNC and Jon Podesta’s email to help Donald trump win the election is false! The details of how that came about are very well presented in This RedState.com article; but the good news is that the false narrative that Russia “hacked” the 2016 Presidential elections is literally collapsing under the mainstream media and Democrat Party since it was nothing but a well-orchestrated political hoax to undermine and destroy Donald Trump’s presidency!
In fact, the actual story the New York Times posted the correction on was written on June 25th and titled, Trump’s Deflections and Denials on Russia Frustrate Even His Allies, and started out by stating that President Trump “has refused to acknowledge that Russia orchestrated hacking during last year’s election.” Wow, how much worse could it get than that! Not only did the New York Times have to retract their lies, they made utter fools of themselves and PROVED just how smart President Trump really is! Al Drago even went on to say, “In the span of 72 hours, President Trump described the email hacking that roiled the 2016 campaign as a Democratic “hoax” and as clear aggression by Russia that his predecessor, President Barack Obama, failed to address.” And ALL of that’s undeniably true based on the FACTS! But please read the story because it’s ever so delicious now that the NYT has had to “eat crow” by editing the article (incorrectly) to say “four intelligence agencies” when issuing the following correction on June 29th:
“Correction: June 29, 2017
A White House Memo article on Monday about President Trump’s deflections and denials about Russia referred incorrectly to the source of an intelligence assessment that said Russia orchestrated hacking attacks during last year’s presidential election. The assessment was made by four intelligence agencies — the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National Security Agency. The assessment was not approved by all 17 organizations in the American intelligence community.”
Unfortunately, it appears that the New York Times still can’t resist trying to make their bogus story sound better than it was since “the Office of the Director of National Intelligence” is NOT an “intelligence agency” as falsely stated in their correction. So in the end, the so-called “intelligence assessment” that Russia “hacked” the 2016 elections, specifically the DNC and John Podesta emails, to help elect Donald Trump was only approved by THREE intelligence agencies, and as Director Clapper acknowledged in his sworn testimony on May 8th, the two dozen analysts who made that determination were “hand-picked.” So relying on reports or assessments about Russia hacking into the 2016 election involving then FBI Director James Comey, Cia Director John Brennan and DNI Director James Clapper himself is risky business; especially since they’re all known to be highly political and/or less than honest (even when testifying under oath).
For instance, since I had always heard that the Republican National Committee was NOT hacked because they put more effective security measures in place and welcomed the assistance of the FBI, I was very surprised to hear James Clapper say (in his testimony on May 8th that’s linked to above) that the Russians also hacked the RNC, and didn’t disclose that information; which he testified is why the intelligence community concluded that Russia was trying to help Donald Trump win the election. That would make sense IF it was true, but when I started digging around, I found this testimony from FBI Director James Comey that there’s NO evidence that “either the Trump campaign or the CURRENT RNC was SUCCESSFULLY hacked.” Comey further testified that “old” RNC domains, old email domains that they were no longer using, were hacked and that information harvested from there was “old stuff,” and none of that was released. Additionally, back in December (BEFORE the final IC report was released last January), Sean Spicer made a very compelling argument disproving the false narrative that the RNC was hacked and showed that such claims were politically motivated. Spicer also proved that the Washington Post and New York Times KNEW way back then that the IC report was NOT approved by all seventeen intelligence agencies, NOT conclusive and that the RNC was NOT hacked.
However, as we’ve seen since then, the Trump-hating New York Times isn’t about to be deterred by the truth or facts; thus the “corrected”/”edited” section of the article still reads, “The latest presidential tweets were proof to dismayed members of Mr. Trump’s party that he still refuses to acknowledge a basic fact agreed upon by four American intelligence agencies: Russia orchestrated the attacks, and did it to help get him elected.” That statement is quite a stretch since the strongest “fact” agreed to and included in the intelligence report that was referred to literally states: “The recent disclosures of alleged hacked e-mails on sites like DCLeaks.com and WikiLeaks and by the Guccifer 2.0 online persona are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts.” What…“the alleged hacked emails?” All this time, the New York Times, Washington Post, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and everyone else has been carrying on about this allegedly “conclusive” report from ALL SEVENTEEN INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES that “proves” that Russia “hacked” the 2016 Presidential election, and ALL it literally says is that the hacking in question are “alleged hacked emails” and that their “disclosure” on various websites is “consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts.” That’s really the best evidence all seventeen of our intelligence agencies were supposed to have that threw this country into such a tailspin? Surely the United States of America can do better than that! It seems utterly IMPOSSIBLE that the New York Times, Washington post, CNN, MSNBC and other news outlets have wasted so much time, energy and money foisting a total hoax on the American people and the entire world all these months based on something so flimsy as a questionable report that at BEST states that they “believe” that “only Russia’s senior-most officials could have authorized these activities.”…and now we’re wasting precious taxpayer money on all sorts of investigations based on a bunch of hot air! Sadly for the American people, it really isn’t a stretch to question the integrity and trustworthiness of the intelligence assessments and reports issued during the Obama presidency since so many senior administration officials have intentionally misled Congress and the American people and literally perjured themselves when testifying under oath at various hearings; including James Comey, John Brennan and James Clapper.
When it comes to former FBI Director James Comey’s stunning lack of credibility, in addition to so much other convincing evidence available online about how he handled/mishandled the FBI investigation into the Hillary Clinton email scandal, the down-to-earth, common sense questions Congressman Doug Collins asked FBI Director Comey say it best! And then the comments covered just about everything he might have left out; though readers should be warned that they contain some very offensive and inappropriate language. But one of the most recent and very compelling examples of former FBI Director James Comey lying and perjuring himself can be seen in this compilation of his testimony under oath showing how he contradicted himself about President Trump asking him to “shut down” the Russia investigation. And while this Breitbart News article details how Comey perjured himself about leaking to the media and likely did so while still the FBI Director, this video shows that James Comey has been trying to take down President Trump from day one! Comey even testified that he “leaked” to the New York Times because he wanted a special counsel to be appointed…and sure enough, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed one of Comey’s best friends, Robert Muller, as Special Counsel just one day after his memos were leaked to the New York Times!
Former CIA Director John Brennan also has a record of lying and misleading the American people and Congress, including lying about the CIA hacking into the Senate Intelligence Committee’s computers as documented here. And in his latest sworn testimony before the House, he was caught lying to Trey Gowdy, whose very direct and specific questions indicate that he believes Brennan “unmasked” someone (which is a felony) on his last day in office. And even though Director John Brennan corrected the record later by saying he “misspoke” and WAS in fact at the CIA headquarters that day, he was obviously lying when he said he wasn’t even “in the agency” on January 20th. With all that said, one of the most surprising things to me and many others was when the Director of the CIA literally testified under oath and said, “I don’t do evidence”! What…who knew the CIA doesn’t “do” evidence!”
Former DNI Director James Clapper has little credibility as well since he undoubtedly committed perjury when he infamously testified that the NSA doesn’t collect data on millions of Americans, which he later acknowledged doing so knowing that wasn’t true. Yet unlike many less fortunate individuals, Director James Clapper was never prosecuted for perjury, as just about any OTHER American would be! Not only that, James Clapper lied to Congress and to the American people about who changed the CIA’s Benghazi “talking points” as detailed here. And the evidence provided in this scathing Weekly Standard article about how the Benghazi “talking points” were changed is more than sufficient reason to question EVERYTHING put out by the intelligence agencies that provided the assessment about Russia hacking into our election!
First, some of the very same agencies and people were involved in the process that led to the intentionally deceptive Benghazi talking points, which reportedly included “senior officials from the State Department, the National Security Council, the CIA, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the White House.” With President Obama’s re-election on the line in just six weeks (along with Hillary Clinton’s future presidential plans), they obviously included only the people they could trust to hide the truth about the terrorist attacks in Benghazi from the American people! In fact, the article stated that, “As intelligence officials pieced together the puzzle of events unfolding in Libya, they concluded even before the assaults had ended that AL Qaeda-linked terrorists were involved. Senior administration officials, however, sought to obscure the emerging picture and downplay the significance of attacks that killed a U.S. Ambassador and three other Americans.” The article also states that the House report quotes directly from emails between top administration and intelligence officials, and that “If the House report provides an accurate and complete depiction of the emails, it is clear that senior administration officials engaged in a wholesale rewriting of intelligence assessments about Benghazi in order to mislead the public.” My emphasis was added for obvious reasons! So reading the above article in its entirety provides more than enough evidence of why the American people shouldn’t believe ANYTHING that came out of the Obama administration or the intelligence community under his direction, which includes the outrageous political hoax about Russia hacking the 2016 election! And after listening to former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Evelyn Farkas “spill the beans” and then try to “clean up” what she said and clearly meant, there’s no doubt that the Obama administration was actively working to smear President Trump by promoting and possibly even creating phony documentation for the Russia election interference and collusion hoax in its final days. Then according to Bombard’s Body Language analysis, Evelyn Farkas was lying and scared to death in the interviews where she tried to deny what the entire world heard her say, and probably with good reason.
In addition to all the other good reasons NOT to believe the Obama administration’s intelligence community reports regarding Russia hacking our election, particularly the DNC and Podesta email, WikiLeaks recently revealed in the release of Vault 7that the CIA has the ability to “mask” THEIR hacking efforts and make it look like someone else did the hacking…someone else like Russia. That’s really significant information since the IC reports didn’t definitively say Russia hacked the DNC and Podesta emails; only that the hacking and disclosure was “consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts.” Wow, that’s exactly what Julian Assange was talking about! Not only that, how could the intelligence community conclude anything about the DNC computers when the DNC refused to make their computers available to the FBI for examination?
Additionally, it was VERY convenient for Hillary Clinton that the Joint Statement from the Department of Homeland Security and Office of the Director of National Intelligence on Election Security that she and so many others KNOWINGLY AND FALSELY claimed was “approved” by all seventeen American intelligence agencies, was released on October 7, 2016, a mere two days before the second debate and twelve days before the last one; where she used it in another desperate and failed attempt to vanquish Donald Trump! She used that lie over and over again as she falsely stated that they (ALL seventeen intelligence agencies) “confirmed” and “concluded” the details she was spewing about the Russia hacking narrative we now know is nothing but a hoax! So just listen to what Hillary Clinton said now that the entire world knows it was nothing but a big fat lie! In hindsight, it’s also quite impressive to note how confidently Donald Trump told her she didn’t know what she was talking about AND that he did doubt the intelligence report, which he was obviously right to do!
As hard as it is to believe, even printed acknowledgements by the New York Times and the Associated Press that all seventeen intelligence agencies did NOT “approve” the intelligence assessment that Russia hacked the 2016 presidential election to benefit Donald Trump appears to make no difference to Senator Mark Werner as the Vice-Chair On the Senate Intelligence Committee. In an interview on CNN’s GPS (Global Public Square) with Fareed Zakaria on Sunday morning, Senator Mark Werner continued pushing the false Democratic narrative that all seventeen agencies agree that Russia hacked the 2016 election and totally disregarded that the agency directors who signed off on the report had testified under oath that there’s absolutely no evidence that Donald Trump or his campaign and administration colluded with Russia during or since the election. Sadly, it appears that the Democrats and mainstream media, who spun this political hoax and foisted it on the American people in the first place, are willing to go down with the ship before abandoning what most reasonable people now recognize as a total hoax. In fact, this shocking and very alarming Project Veritas American Pravda video (which also contains offensive language) proves without a shadow of doubt that CNN knows that there’s absolutely NOTHING to the Russia hacking story, but they’re more interested in ratings than reporting real fact-based news! And in the second Project Veritas American Pravda video, even CNN’s Van Jones admitted that “the Russian thing is just a big nothing burger! So I’m in full agreement with Tucker Carlson and Mark Steyn, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Tim Black and so many others that CNN and other mainstream media (as well as other deranged Trump-haters) are starting to self-destruct because of their hatred of President Trump and everything he intends to do on behalf of the American people who elected him. And one of the single most significant things our President is doing for the good of our country and the American people is standing up to and calling out the press, which obviously impresses and tickles Rush Limbaugh just as much as it does me! So I can’t help wondering how many other self-righteous, sanctimonious, unhinged Trump-haters who have made utter fools of themselves will have to issue retractions; especially if as I believe might soon happen, Julian Assange publishes proof that the DNC and Podesta emails were sent to him by Seth Rich or another disgruntled Bernie Sanders supporter.
Finally, for those determined to resist and overthrow President Donald Trump and invalidate the votes of the Americans who elected him, perhaps a reminder of what their favorite President said about “rigging” American elections BEFORE the election is instructive at this time; particularly since President Obama said challenging election results would weaken America and make it less great. Well, this is one time when I wholeheartedly agree with Barack Obama, and why I know the Russia election hacking hoax is a very sinister plot intended to do great harm to our country. But the really good news for all Americans is that just as the song America the Beautiful proclaims, God truly has shed His most amazing grace on America and saved us from destruction!
