The sentence “Russian disinformation” lost its sting when Democrats began using it as a domestic weapon.
Senator Mitt Romney this week called Gabbard, an Army Reserve lieutenant colonel and former Democratic nominee for president, a “traitorous” liar. Ana Navarro and Whoopi Goldberg, Co-hosts of ABC’s The View chimed in to demand that the Justice Department investigate Carlson over “shillings for Putin.”
Ex MSNBC Expert Keith Olberman said the Fox News anchor and Gabbard should be arrested and jailed as “Russian assets” because “there’s a war.”
But denouncing someone as a Russian asset no longer carries much weight. Everyone knows it’s the Democrats’ catchphrase.
If they hadn’t used Russia as their personal bogeyman for six years, it might not be so easy to dismiss their claims that everyone they don’t like is a Kremlin asset.
Hillary Clinton has crippled the first three years of Donald Trump’s presidency by accusing him of colluding with Vladimir Putin to manipulate him the 2016 election. Russiagate launched her campaign with the support of senior adviser Jake Sullivan, whose role is revealed through court filings from Special Attorney John Durham. For his efforts, Sullivan was promoted to national security adviser and is currently President Biden’s contact for Ukraine.
“Russian disinformation” was finally rendered meaningless on the eve of the 2020 election, when 50 former senior intelligence officials, including John Brennan, James Clapper, Michael Hayden and Leon Panetta, signed a fake letter aimed at rescuing Biden from evidence of wrongdoing who his son was found Hunter’s abandoned laptop.
They claimed that without any evidence incriminating emails from the laptop, published from the post, would have “all the classic hallmarks of a Russian information operation” and would be used to “undermine” Biden’s candidacy.
The letter was Big Tech’s and other media’s apology to ensure Joe Biden was never held accountable for meeting him Hunter’s corrupt purser from Russia and Ukraine – and lied about it during the election campaign.
None of the signatories to this bizarre letter have apologized for misleading the American people now that everyone accepts it Hunter’s laptop is real. Some, like Brennan, were also involved in Russiagate.
It’s annoying to see them popping up on TV as experts on ‘World War III’ for the past three weeks. Former CIA chief Brennan pondered with Joy Reid on MSNBC about the assassination of Putin. Clapper, a former director of national intelligence, likes to tell CNN that Putin is “out of control.”
Panetta, a former Obama defense secretary, calls MSNBC’s Morning Joe, another Russiagate, for a tougher crackdown on Putin Disinfo Dealer.
Former CIA and NSA director Hayden tweets comparing Putin to Donald Trump and retweets memes depicting Carlson as a “Russian asset.”
It’s all so corrosive to public trust.
the manufactured moral panic left over Russia is the political equivalent of the boy who cried wolves. In the Aesop fable, a shepherd boy repeatedly gives false alarms that a wolf is attacking the town’s flock of sheep. The townsfolk stop believing him, and when the wolf arrives, no one listens to his cries and he is eaten alive. The moral of the story is that no one believes a liar, even if they’re telling the truth.
So when it comes to Russia, you can hardly blame people trump supporter, for being skeptical of what is coming out of the mouths of the same liars who have been crying wolf for the past six years.
As the threat from China grew and a virus unleashed by China killed millions and crippled our economies They only talked about Russia. While the virus was circulating, they impeached Trump for his clumsy attempt to get Ukraine to reveal their knowledge of the Biden family’s corruption involvement there.
Start of Trump’s first impeachment trial in January 2020, Democratic Ringleader Adam Schiff stated, “The United States is helping Ukraine and her people so that we can fight Russia there and not fight Russia here.”
But he never explained why we were so eager to go to war against nuclear-armed Russia? Why should we give China such a gift?
And why have we continued to meddle in Ukrainian politics, to the point that in February 2021, just days after Biden’s inauguration, the US Embassy in Kyiv applauded the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyyz Crackdown on his pro-Russian, Eurosceptic political opponent Viktor Medvedchuk, who had his TV station shut down and his assets confiscated before being placed under house arrest.
As Time Magazine reported in last month’s The Untold Story of the Ukraine Crisis, within days Putin began deploying troops the Ukrainian border.
We saw how Putin reacted the last time the Democrats were in power and how he got involved in Ukraine – he invaded Crimea in 2014.
A few weeks later, Hunter Biden joined the board of corrupt Ukrainian energy company Burisma, owned by Moscow-allied oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky, who paid then-Vice President Joe Biden to a crack-addicted son $83,333 per month.
Hunter had multiple connections to Russian oligarchs in Putin’s sanctum. As the Chuck Grassley-Ron Johnson Senate inquiry found in February 2014
3.5 million dollars were transferred by Russians Oligarch Yelena Baturina to a bank account associated with Hunter’s business partner, Devon Acher. A few weeks later Hunter and Archer flew to Lake Como in Italy and met Baturina.
She and her husband, the corrupt former mayor of Moscow, were on Hunter’s guest list for a dinner he hosted at Cafe Milano Georgetown section of DC in 2015 for his VP father to meet his foreign business partners including a Ukrainian representative from Burisma.
Hunter’s ties to Russian oligarchs date back at least to 2012, when he flew to Moscow to have breakfast with one of Putin’s closest friends Allies, Ara Abramyan. Hunter’s journal also records a meeting that afternoon Sergei Chemezov, another Putin buddy and the head of the state-owned company Rostec. Dinner was with another oligarch. After breakfast the next day, he was back at Abramyan’s mansion to meet two more billionaires.
You can see why Hunter’s name was listed along with his father and Hillary Clinton on Russia’s list of US officials sanctioned released this week. It cannot simply be laughed at by the White House. It’s a personal message from Putin to the president, whose family’s plans for influence are now faced with national security concerns.
The more the usual suspects yell “Russian disinformation,” the more cynical Americans become.
