As if there were’n enough reasons to rail against the “resistance” rats who’ve stowed away on the U.S.S. Government for time immemorial, a new story comes to us from the murky waters of Russian conspiracy land.
Throughout the course of Donald Trump’s young presidency, the liberal left has been doing all that they can to make his tenure appear as either a failure or as a horrible mistake. In every minute move made by the Commander in Chief, they find something to complain about, or to claim is “bigoted” or “treasonous”. The reason for this campaign of slurs is simple: When you control the media, you control the narrative.
Yet, behind the scenes, these anti-Trump, anti-American forces have been working with nefarious characters from around the globe in order to stymy the President and taint his short time in office, with many of their efforts concentrated on the ridiculous idea that Trump himself is some sort of Kremlin double agent who reached the Oval Office only at the behest of Vladimir Putin himself. This farcical and absurd claim has been a main talking point for the liberal left over the course of the last two years, and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere any time soon.
Now, over a year into Trump’s reign, we are still learning of instances in which our government is reaching out to Russian sources in order to bolster their nonsense.
“After months of secret negotiations, a shadowy Russian bilked American spies out of $100,000 last year, promising to deliver stolen National Security Agency cyberweapons in a deal that he insisted would also include compromising material on President Trump, according to American and European intelligence officials.
“The cash, delivered in a suitcase to a Berlin hotel room in September, was intended as the first installment of a $1 million payout, according to American officials, the Russian and communications reviewed by The New York Times. The theft of the secret hacking tools had been devastating to the N.S.A., and the agency was struggling to get a full inventory of what was missing.”
In order to cover their tracks, an “official stance” on the material was concocted and disseminated through the usual mainstream channels, including the New York Times who printed the following disclaimer.
“Several American intelligence officials said they made clear that they did not want the Trump material from the Russian, who was suspected of having murky ties to Russian intelligence and to Eastern European cybercriminals. He claimed the information would link the president and his associates to Russia. Instead of providing the hacking tools, the Russian produced unverified and possibly fabricated information involving Mr. Trump and others, including bank records, emails and purported Russian intelligence data.”
The problem with The New York Times’ “day late, buck short” excuse here is that the Times themselves have been on the receiving end of massive scorn from the President and his base over their continued descent into the realm of “fake news” meant only to disparage the President and prop up democratic demagogues such as Hillary Clinton.
Perhaps, at some point during Trump’s first term we will see the end of this ridiculous Russian witch hunt. Until that time, however, it will be imperative to always consider the sources of such claims, and from what liberal corner of the D.C. Swamp they come from.
