The Washington Post published an article claiming that a well-known doctor is accusing Russian President Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump of possibly poisoning Hillary Clinton. Dr. Bennet Omalu discovered ‘Chronic Traumatic encephalopathy’ (CTE) in the brains of deceased players of the National Football League (NFL). CTE is a degenerative disease caused my repeated blows to the head that effects athletes involved in contact sports such as boxing and American football.
Dr. Omalu became famous (at least in the U.S.) when Hollywood produced a film called ‘Concussion’ (actor Will Smith plays Omalu in the film) based on his discovery and how the NFL tried to silence him. Dr. Omalu is now suggesting that Hillary Clinton was possibly poisoned by either Putin or Trump. Fame can be addictive to some people; maybe Dr. Omalu likes the spotlight so he decided to join the Main-Stream Media (MSM) “conspiracy theory” bandwagon. The Washington Post article titled ‘The man who discovered CTE thinks Hillary Clinton may have been poisoned’ said that Omalu recommended that Clinton should receive a ‘toxicologic analysis’:
Bennet Omalu, the forensic pathologist who has made the NFL so uncomfortable with his discovery of chronic traumatic encephalopathy in the brains of deceased players, suggests that Hillary Clinton’s campaign be checked for possible poisons after her collapse Sunday in New York.
Omalu, whose story was famously told in the movie “Concussion,” made the suggestion on Twitter, writing that he advised campaign officials to “perform toxicologic analysis of Ms. Clinton’s blood”
The Washington Post is not a truth seeking news source that the public can trust any more than The New York Timesor MSNBC. The story reeks of “Conspiracy Theory” all over it. One of the reasons Dr. Omalu gives us is that he does not trust Putin or the Republican front-runner Donald Trump:
He wasn’t giving up on Twitter, adding that his reasoning is that he does not trust Russian President Vladimir Putin or Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee who has expressed admiration for Putin
Wow. What an accusation for a certified doctor who has done a good deed for American football players in the NFL. Dr. Omalu in now jumping head first into the conspiracy theory realm which brings us into the death of Alexander Litvinenko who was poisoned with Polonium- 210. The Washington Post conveniently mentions the Litvinenko case in the article:
Putin, as The Washington Post reported, was implicated by a British inquiry in January in the poisoning death of Alexander Litvinenko, a former KGB operative, in London in 2006.
The Post’s Griff Witte and Michael Birnbaum wrote at the time:
Although the inquiry stops short of conclusively blaming Putin — noting the opaque nature of Kremlin politics — it finds that there is “strong circumstantial evidence that the Russian State was responsible for Mr. Litvinenko’s death.” And citing the high-stakes nature of an operation to assassinate a former KGB officer on British soil, it finds that the operation would probably not have gone ahead without Putin’s direct approval
The murder of Alexander Litvinenko, a former FSB agent who was engaged in anti-Russia propaganda, primarily against Putin who he claimed committed the 1999 apartment-building bombings in Russia for political gain killing scores of people including children.
The British government ran with the Livinenko story which said he was poisoned on British territory by the Russians while sipping a cup of tea laced with a dose of highly radioactive “Polonium-210.” Why? Because it is well known that Polonium-210 is produced in Russia, so it is convenient to blame Russian intelligence services. It is important to understand that Polonium-210 is highly radioactive and highly toxic that would have contaminated airports and the planes from Moscow to the UK and everyone in close proximity to the deadly radioactive substance. If the FSB wanted to kill Livinenko, there would have been numerous ways to do so, but by placing Polonium- 210 in his cup of tea? What about the waiter or waitress or the person who served him the tea or the customers around him? Wouldn’t they have been contaminated as well? The FSB agents or Putin for the matter cannot be that stupid. Why would the Russian government commit a crime with a highly toxic substance that can be traced from Europe all the way to the door steps of the Kremlin?
According to ‘The Litvinenko Inquiry: Report into the Death of Alexander Litvinenko’ by the Chairman of the investigation Sir Robert Owen which was conducted in secrecy stated
“Put very shortly, the closed evidence consists of evidence that is relevant to the Inquiry, but which has been assessed as being too sensitive to put into the public domain.”
Owen claimed the evidence is “too sensitive” for the public domain? Perhaps there was no evidence in the first place. I would go further to say that the evidence or the accusations they had is “too ridiculous” or “too stupid” for the public domain. That is why the investigation was conducted in secrecy in the first place. Maybe Sir Robert Owen wanted to avoid embarrassing himself from public scrutiny. According to an article in 2006 by the ‘The Independent’, a London-based news source titled ‘Litvinenko ‘smuggled nuclear material’ claims that Litvinenko was smuggling nuclear materials out of Russia for the FSB:
Alexander Litvinenko, the poisoned former Russian agent, told the Italian academic he met on the day he fell ill that he had organised the smuggling of nuclear material out of Russia for his security service employers.
Mario Scaramella, who flew into London yesterday to be interviewed by Scotland Yard officers investigating Mr Litvinenko’s death, said Mr Litvinenko told him about the operation for the FSB security service, the successor to the KGB
We don’t know how true Mr. Scaramella’s statement is, but it does make more sense than FSB agents dropping Polonium -210 in Litvinenko’s cup of tea. However, Russian authorities denied any involvement with a nuclear smuggling operation carried out by Litvinenko.
As an FSB agent, Litvinenko investigated organized crime. He was also involved with Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky who had ties to organized crime figures. The Guardian published a story in 2009 titled ‘US embassy cables: Spain’s investigations into the Russian mafia’ which claims that Litvenenko provided Spanish authorities with information regarding their illegal activities and their whereabouts:
Following the Troika arrests in June 2008, details began to appear in the press on the group’s alleged activities and how the investigation developed. Less than a month after the arrests, Spain’s flagship daily, center-left El Pais, published a detailed article claiming that Alexander Litvinenko – the former Russian intelligence official who worked on OC issues before he died in late 2006 in London from poisoning under mysterious circumstances – tipped off Spanish security officials on the locations, roles, and activities of several “Russian” mafia figures with ties to Spain. He allegedly provided information on Izguilov, Zahkar Kalashov, and Tariel Oniani to GOS officials during a May 2006 meeting
For any criminal organization, someone like Litvinenko would be considered a “snitch” and suffer the consequences. Litvinenko’s murder has two possibilities that seem more plausible. The first possibility is that he mishandled the nuclear material he was importing to the UK and got himself exposed to the deadly substance or the Russian mafia put out a contract on his life. Either explanation is more believable than dropping Polonium-210 in his cup of tea right in the city of London.
The MSM accuses the alternative media of spreading “conspiracy theories” on Hillary Clinton’s health issues. But it was all put to rest after the ceremony for the victims of September 11th in New York City when Hillary nearly passed out. The MSM will continue to cover for Hillary Clinton any way possible even if it means spreading more conspiracy theories. It’s amazing how the MSM is promoting Dr. Omalu’s accusations that are absolutely ridiculous. I guess this is what to expect from a media that can’t even follow journalistic principles of reporting the truth, but hey, at least the MSM is becoming more entertaining with stories that make us laugh. Reminds me of what you find in the supermarket tabloids like The National Enquirer.
