WASHINGTON, July 13, 2017 — You can’t blame the Russians for poking a little fun at hyperventilating Democrats and mainstream media over supposed collusion between President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
According to Pravda, Russia didn’t need “to tell Donald Trump’s campaign that Hillary [Clinton] was a dangerous candidate, with an unlikable personality, that the use of the Clinton Foundation charity in the presidential campaign was a topic spread across the social media. In fact, it was not necessary for anyone to spread any dirt on Hillary Clinton’s campaign because she was perfectly capable of doing all that damage herself.”
In all the hoopla over Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with “Kremlin connected” lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, it appears the topic of Clinton dirt never came up.
Instead, the lawyer lobbied for the U.S. to rescind the 2012 Magnitsky Act, which targets certain Russian officials with economic sanctions for their role in the beating death of Sergei Magnitsky, a Moscow lawyer and fraud investigator.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said on more than one occasion that dark revelations concerning Hillary Clinton were in the offing. What was revealed, however, had little to do with Clinton’s Russia collusion to bring husband Bill enormous speaking fees or to secure for Putin’s Russia a massive uranium concession in North America.
WikiLeaks did release emails proving collusion between fake news outlets and the Clinton presidential campaign.
One email from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta to underlings concerned a dinner meeting to be held between members of the media elite and the Democratic presidential candidate. Among the attendees were:
- ABC: Diane Sawyer, George Stephanoplous and David Muir.
- CBS: Gayle King, Norah O’Donnell.
- CNN: Gloria Borger, John Berman, Jeff Zucker and Kate Bouldan.
- MSNBC: Jonathan Alter, Alex Wagner, Ed Schultz, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.
- NBC: Savannah Guthrie.
- New York Times: Amy Chozik, Pat Healey, Jonathan Martin, Gail Collins
- Politico: Glenn Thrush
This list includes only a few of the journalists who attended the “off-the-record” meeting.
Nothing ever leaked concerning the topics discussed between Hillary and her media admirers, although America’s omnipresent deep state—the NSA, CIA, et al—undoubtedly listened in.
As North Korea’s intercontinental missiles threaten Alaska and Hawaii with nuclear annihilation, you can partially thank Russia. According to the Voice of America:
“In spite of international sanctions on North Korea’s communist regime, Russia has been increasing fuel exports to Pyongyang and filling in the supply gap created by China halting trade.”
Temple University’s associate professor in international relations, James Brown, told the VOA, “Moscow has always been worried that the defensive missiles systems that the U.S. is deploying in the region—the THADD anti-missile system in South Korea and now Japan—are more directed at its interest than North Korea.”
Focusing on the “nothing burger” of Trump-Russia collusion is designed to distract from the clear and demonstrable collusion between Hillary Clinton, fake news, Russia and its radioactive ally, North Korea.
During his recent state visit to Poland, Trump announced the U.S. will sell the former Soviet slave state our Patriot anti-missile system, reestablishing a pledge made by the administration of President George W. Bush to protect Poland against Putin’s Russia. That commitment was rescinded by President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton.
While Clinton signed off on a major uranium deal for Putin’s Russia, President Trump takes steps to counteract the Russian and North Korean nuclear threats to America and her allies through a strong anti-missile defense policy.
The Trump-Russia narrative, therefore, only serves to bolster the interests of America’s enemies while threatening the safety of her people.
