Fabricated Claims About Russian “Covert Plot” to Disrupt US Elections

In-depth Report:

Hillary is so irreparably tainted and unfit to serve, her key strategy is diverting attention from her wrongdoing two ways – bashing Trump beyond customary campaign jousting and spreading misinformation and Big Lies about Russia, using the media as press agents to do her dirty work.

Neocon Washington Post editors and staff one-sidedly support her, one of many examples of how low US media scoundrels have sunk – transforming themselves into disgraceful laughing stocks.

The way to stay misinformed and brainwashed is by following their reports. WaPo’s latest anti-Russia harangue is claiming a potential covert plot to disrupt November elections.

Guilt by accusation suffices, no verifiable evidence needed, WaPo saying “US intelligence and law enforcement agencies are investigating what they see as a broad covert Russian operation in the United States to sow public distrust in the upcoming presidential election and in US political institutions, (unnamed) intelligence and congressional officials said.”

When sources remain unnamed, speaking on condition of anonymity, automatic red flags are raised – especially when Russia is irresponsibly bashed, practically a daily affair by media scoundrels and rogue government officials.

Nothing suggest Russia or its predecessor the Soviet Union ever attempted to interfere with America’s political process – nor does evidence exist indicating it’s now happening.

One unnamed US source admitted America’s intelligence community has no “definitive proof” or anything suggesting a Russian plot to manipulate or otherwise disrupt the nation’s electoral process.

So why is WaPo reporting rubbish, vicious Russia-bashing propaganda, while ignoring how America interferes in numerous elections abroad to assure officials in charge serve its interests?

Press agent journalism operates this way, Hillary picking up on WaPo’s report, claiming nonexistent Russian interference in America’s electoral process is “a threat from an adversarial foreign power.”

She outrageously accused Trump of encouraging Moscow to spy on her, saying “(w)e’ve never had a foreign adversarial power be already involved in our electoral process, (and) we’ve never had a nominee of one of our major parties urging the Russians to hack more.”

Irresponsibly bashing Russia and Trump diverts attention from her own high crimes, a deplorable record at least since the 1990s. Media scoundrels serve her interests, going all-out to assure she succeeds Obama – humanity’s fate hanging in the balance if successful.

Russia bashing is part of longterm strategy heading inevitably toward East/West confrontation – the unthinkable possibility of nuclear war.

Bipartisan neocon lunatics infesting Washington could attack anytime at their discretion, inventing a pretext for global war – the greatest risk with Hillary in power, why stopping her is urgent.

According to WaPo, administration officials are “weighing their response” to baseless anti-Russian allegations.

Are they preparing for war once Hillary in all likelihood assumes power next year? Humanity’s survival is more at risk than ever with her finger on the nuclear trigger.
