I had planned to write a long-ish piece about recent claims made by Craig Murray
; unfortunately, my health is a bit iffy tonight, so I have to keep things brief. Murray -- a former UK ambassador turned Julian Assange associate -- says that the DNC leaks did not occur via Russian hacking. Instead, that leaked material was (allegedly) handed to him by a DNC staffer who was angered by supposed Clinton Foundation corruption and the DNC's mistreatment of St. Bernie.
But the Clinton Foundation is NOT corrupt; as discussed in previous posts, these charges are Breitbart fabrications. And Bernie -- as we've established in a number of previous posts -- received absolutely zero ill-treatment from the DNC. None. Zippo.
In other words, Murray wants us to believe that his contact was motivated by "scandals" which do not actually exist outside of Trump/Bernie propaganda.
Naturally, the Alt-Right sites are treating Murray's revelations as if they were Gospel. Forget about the findings of the entire American intelligence community. Forget about the fact that Putin's guilt is stipulated by James Comey, who has not exactly acted in a friendly fashion toward Hillary. Forget about the dozens of indicators that Putin and Trump cut a deal.
And consider this
all-important fact: The intelligence community made its assessment even though Obama's term is nearly complete. Trump has signaled that he intends to install loyalists and sycophants. In terms of career advancement, no-one in today's intelligence community has any motive to proffer a fake story which calls into question Trump's legitimacy.
By way of comparison (a comparison which Trump himself drew): The misleading claim that Saddam Hussein possessed WMDs occurred toward the beginning of the Dubya administration. At that time, anyone with ambition in the intelligence community had every motive to please the new boss. Yet even then, the CIA never used the words "high confidence" in regard to the WMD claim; everything was kept hazy and speculative.
use the term "high confidence" to describe their finding that Putin's hackers affected the 2016 election.
In order to be a proper TrumpBot, you have to forget all about those inconvenient facts.
The far right would prefer for you to disregard the intelligence services of the United States and its allies
(who have also chimed in on this score). Instead, we are supposed to believe an unverified tale told by a disgraced former ambassador named Craig Murray -- a man who is suddenly the new darling of the vile Alex Jones. Surprise, surprise: Murray's fable just happens to hit many of the same propaganda points pushed by the Trump campaign.
As it turns out, Murray's DNC contact told him a few things which have not yet been published. In a Cannonfire exclusive, I shall now present the hidden
part of Murray's description of the day he met his DNC source.
As I questioned my contact further, all of the color left her face. "But I haven't even told you the worst part, Mr. Murray. Pedophilia. Satanism. Podesta. It's all tied in with this Pizza restaurant in Chevy Chase..."
"Are you kidding?"
"I wish I were! But that's not the most unbelievable part. If you stand really close to Hillary, you can see them. The camera doesn't capture it, because she keeps them neatly trimmed..."
"The horns! I know you won't believe this, but I swear to God, it's true. She keeps them carefully trimmed, sort of like Hellboy, but much closer to scalp. If get close to her, you can can see two flat, boney discs just below her hairline..."
If the name of the game is "Fake News," I wanna play too!
On a related note:
Facebook has instituted serious polices
regarding fake news. I'm pleased to see that these policies bear some resemblance to the ideas that I tossed out there not so long ago.
