WASHINGTON. Call it a tale of two conspiracy theories. For the past two years, Americans have heard nightly newscasters and leading newspapers tell us with straight faces and somber voices that Donald Trump committed treason. That the president, by colluding with Russia, sought to change the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.
Taking their talking points from Democrats and Deep State sources, the MSM continually insists the walls are closing in and the noose is tightening for President Trump. All this shortly before Special Counsel Robert Mueller dropped his Russia investigation report on the desk of Attorney General William Barr.
But Mueller’s investigative team, comprised of Democratic donors, found no collusion and, more importantly, no evidence of obstruction of justice that could stand the test in open court.
But the man the New York Times calls a “conspiracy theorist and founder of Infowars,” Alex Jones, issued a more plausible conspiracy theory of his own:
“Make no mistake. It was Obama. It was Hillary and others who set up this fake criminal investigation. That’s the crime. And now the Democrats, because they failed in their crime and can be brought to justice any time for being involved in it, are trying to double down…. And things never seem to work out the way evil wants them to in the end.”
Jones also said those who proffer more plausible conspiracy theories than those offered by the discredited fake-news media should expect reprisals:
“You’ve got to be ready to be demonized and attacked and lied about by the globalists.”
And, of course, he was right. Jones has since been de-platformed by Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
But the most interesting aspect of Jones’s theory is contained in the short quote above regarding “globalists.”
That’s because the plot to remove President Trump from office – the one Attorney General Barr says he is now investigating – was most certainly global in nature.
Connecting the dots
Prior to the 2016 presidential election, the European Council on Foreign Relations published an article titled “Fear and Loathing on the Road to the US Election.”
Its survey claimed to represent “a wide variety of views across Europe.”
“Europeans, particularly those in government, yearn for the elusive continuity of the transatlantic relationship. They have a deep desire for the US to continue and even enhance its role as a provider of security of Europe. Consequently, they broadly prefer Hillary Clinton – the candidate most associated with continuity – to win the presidency.”
For Europeans, the article proclaims, “Trump is certainly seen as unpredictable and ignorant” regarding his “threat of withdrawing from NATO and of banning Muslims from the United States.”
Clinton, however, was seen as being “a far more normal president, which goes a long to explaining why she is far the preferred candidate.”
Enter the man of Steele
We are told Christopher Steele, author of the infamous anti-Trump dossier, is a “retired” agent for Britain’s intelligence agency MI6. But is that really true?
Back in November of 2018, the London Daily Telegraph reported senior MI6 officials were…
“… secretly battling Donald Trump to stop his publishing classified information linked to the Russian election meddling investigation… The UK is warning that the US president would undermine intelligence gathering if he releases pages of an FBI application to wiretap one of his former campaign advisers.” (Emphasis added).
The Steele dossier claimed Trump campaign underlings did serve as “intermediaries” between Trump and the Russians. According to Steele, “the two sides had a mutual interest in defeating Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, whom President [Vladimir] Putin apparently both hated and feared.”
And who were Steele’s sources? According to the man himself, “a former top Russian intelligence officer” and “a senior Kremlin official.”
In other words, the Trump/Russia collusion narrative was the product of a British spy working in collusion with Russian intelligence.
And the Steele/Russian dossier formed the basis of the FBI’s FISA warrant request to surveil Carter Page, a Trump foreign policy advisor.
According to the redacted FBI warrant application released to the public, Page had…
“… been the subject of targeted recruitment by the Russian Government” to “undermine and influence the outcome of the 2016 U.S. Presidential election in violation of U.S. criminal law.”
And then in August 2018, the FBI grudgingly admits Steele was a confidential informant. Steele was later fired for leaking to the press.
Finally, and most importantly, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, released last month, unequivocally states:
“The investigation did not establish that Page coordinated with the Russian government in its efforts to interfere with the 2016 presidential election.”
Furthermore, Mueller said no evidence existed that any American conspired with Russia to “meddle” in the 2016 presidential election.
But that’s clearly untrue.
Americans colluding with globalists and Russia
We know the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign – through their Perkins Coie attorney – paid opposition research firm Fusion GPS $12.2 million for the Steele dossier. A document that was to serve as an “October Surprise” in the final days of the presidential campaign.
We know the FBI’s former general counsel, James Baker, met with Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussman in the summer of 2016 to discuss Trump/Russia collusion.
In secret testimony before Congress, Baker later said Sussman
“Gave him documents and a thumb drive related to Russian interference in the election, hacking and possible Trump connections,” The Hill reported. (Collusion bombshell: DNC lawyers met with FBI on Russia allegations before surveillance warrant)
And the late Sen. John McCain detailed in his book “The Restless Wave” that he met with British diplomat Sir Andrew Wood at a security conference in Nova Scotia shortly before the November election.
“He [Wood] told me he knew a former MI6 officer by the name of Christopher Steele, who had been commissioned to investigate connections between the Trump campaign and Russian agents as well as potentially compromising information about the President-elect that [Russian President Vladimir] Putin allegedly possessed.”
McCain, ever anxious to burnish his “hero” credentials, said he…
“… did what any American who cares about our nation’s security should have done. I put the dossier in my office safe, called the office of the director of the FBI, Jim Comey, and asked for a meeting.”
After his firing by Trump, Comey appeared on ABC’s “20/20,” telling former Clinton White House aide George Stephanopoulos the Steele dossier “was consistent with the other information we’d gathered during the intelligence investigation.”
An investigation headed by the FBI’s head of counterintelligence, Trump-hating Peter Strzok.
And former CIA Director John Brennan, cashing in on his intelligence credentials, before the nation’s television viewers, insists that Trump’s actions in relation to Russia were “nothing short of treasonous.”
In a tweet last March, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul announced:
BREAKING: A high-level source tells me it was Brennan who insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier be included in the Intelligence Report… Brennan should be asked to testify under oath in Congress ASAP.

So, what do we have?
The British government, working on behalf of the European community, utilized a “former” MI6 asset, operating in conjunction with the Kremlin, to provide election opposition research to an American firm comprised of sleaze-merchants.
A company founded by “former” journalists to help Democrats, never-Trump Republicans like Sen. McCain, and US Deep State entities meddle with the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.
Despite this well-organized, globalist effort on behalf of the Democratic Party, America’s “basket of deplorables foiled the elaborate scheme.
Leftist corporate entities like Facebook may block Alex Jones from using their social media platforms for disseminating “dangerous” conspiracy theories, but it won’t stop the honest Attorney General William Barr from investigating the globalist origins behind the dangerous, Trump/Russia collusion conspiracy theory.
