Washington Post Claiming Russiagate Still Valid Even If Seth Rich Was DNC Leaker.

Sharing is Caring!

by Pamela Williams
The WASHINGTON POST has declared if for some reason it should rise to the surface that Russia did not hack the DNC and leak them to Wikileaks, this does not mean that the Trump/Russia story did not happen.  
They say even if Seth Rich turns out to be the DNC leaker, it will not help Trump’s issue of Russian collusion.  Of course, it won’t as there has to be something going all the time to distract President Trump from doing the job he was elected to do.
So many investigators on the Net are striving to discover what really happened to Seth Rich.  The deeper we dig, the more we find.  Hannity of FOX NEWS has announced he will back off the Seth Rich murder investigation, as Seth’s parents are asking him to do so.  I do not understand where they are coming from, but I do not judge them.
Hannity also announced that the organization MEDIA MATTERS is trying to shut him down.  I have to mention here they have also attacked yours truly IWB.
It has also come out that Judicial Watch has filed a request for information from on the Seth Rich murder investigation.  Tom Fitton may be our saving grace here.  He is a man of his word, and JUDICIAL WATCH is a great asset to the American people.
If the theory is right, does the “Trump/Russia” story implode?
That’s pretty clearly what Sean Hannity thinks. “If Seth was wiki source, no Trump/Russia collusion,” the Fox News host tweeted this past weekend, as he promoted the out-of-almost-nowhere arrival of Internet celebrity Kim Dotcom to the story. The theory is simple: If someone could prove that WikiLeaks had a mole inside the DNC, the table-banging about Russia-linked hacking would be debunked, whoosh, just like that.
The problem, which really should be more obvious, is that the DNC wasn’t the only Democratic campaign organization hacked in 2016. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee was hacked. Podesta’s email was hacked. In the fantasy where the Rich obsessives are vindicated, they end up with no rebuttal to the federal investigators who say that hackers penetrated the DCCC and Clinton’s campaign chairman. And, not incidentally, the emails that did the most intra-Democratic Party damage, like the proof that then-DNC Vice Chair
In the past six weeks, the Washington Post published two blockbuster stories about the Russian threat that went viral: one on how Russia is behind a massive explosion of “fake news,” the other on how it invaded the U.S. electric grid. Both articles were fundamentally false. Each now bears a humiliating editor’s note grudgingly acknowledging that the core claims of the story were fiction: The first note was posted a full two weeks later to the top of the original article; the other was buried the following day at the bottom.
The second story on the electric grid turned out to be far worse than I realized when I wrote about it on Saturday, when it became clear that there was no “penetration of the U.S. electricity grid” as the Post had claimed. In addition to the editor’s note, the Russia-hacked-our-electric-grid story now has a full-scale retraction in the form of a separate article admitting that “the incident is not linked to any Russian government effort to target or hack the utility” and there may not even have been malware at all on this laptop.
But while these debacles are embarrassing for the paper, they are also richly rewarding. That’s because journalists — including those at the Post — aggressively hype and promote the original, sensationalistic false stories, ensuring that they go viral, generating massive traffic for the Post (the paper’s executive editor, Marty Baron, recently boasted about how profitable the paper has become).
After spreading the falsehoods far and wide, raising fear levels and manipulating U.S. political discourse in the process (both Russia stories were widely hyped on cable news), journalists who spread the false claims subsequently note the retraction or corrections only in the most muted way possible, and often not at all. As a result, only a tiny fraction of people who were exposed to the original false story end up learning of the retractions.

My favorite author, Caitlin Johnstone, of the
tells it like it is:  
I guess there’s no point arguing with CIA propagandists, but for any actual human beings reading this let’s get one thing perfectly clear: if Seth Rich is shown to have been the DNC leaker, they do not get to push their psychotic Russia conspiracies on us ever again. Ever. They are done. They will never, ever again brutalize the psyches of innocent people with their toxic, xenophobic, world-threatening mind virus. If the corporate media keeps trying to keep that wheel spinning, we the people will kill it, and kill it hard. These disgusting parasites have been terrorizing the American people with Russophobic fairy tales since the DNC leaks dropped last July, and if they are shown to have been wrong about the leaks that started this whole thing, they are done. Democrats have to make changes to their party and WaPo needs to find a new way to sell infinitely overpriced subscriptions. End of.
Caitlin says it so well.

ARE YOU READY FOR THE FIGHT !!! he founder of the far left wing group Media Matters, David Brock, gathered over 100 liberal donors last weekend at a high end resort in Florida according to a report by the Washington Free Beacon.
Donors were gathered at the resort to plan their attack of how to “kick Donald Trump’s ass.” The Free Beacon obtained a copy of the private memo sent out by David Brock which outlines a plan of of attack for the next four years using “Media Matters, American Bridge, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), and Shareblue.” While these groups sound moderate and centrist they are actually far left leaning with a strong track record of attacking everyone who doesn’t agree with their views.

  1. I don’t like Trump (for the missiles he fired at Syria and the MOAB on Afghanistan and his constant pandering to Israel and Kushner, among other things), but this is plain insane.
    This is not a pro-/anti-Trump issue. People need to stand up against those liars regardless of where they stand politically.
    Trump should have his ass kicked, but over the things he actually did wrong, and not over plain old fake news and propaganda.
    And kicking the collective asses of Brock, the corporate media editors, Hitlery Clinton and Podesta is far more important right now.

    • What have Trump voters gotten for electing him? Apparently nothing. Trump was supposed to be the “yuge” job creator, secure the border, keep-us-out-of-foreign wars candidate.
      Job turnaround? Nope.
      Secure the border? Nope.
      Stay out of foreign conflicts? Nope. 59 cruise missiles fired into a mess we should have nothing to do with. In a neighborhood we shouldn’t be in.
      But Israel loves him… Netanyahu will be getting everything he wants. “Go ahead with those settlements…We own America!”
      Israel happy.
      Trump voters of Middle America? Not so much. Funny how that turned out…

      • Nothing indeed – I wasn’t very happy with Trump at election time, and he keeps disappointing me even more.
        I think there’s just 2 things that still speak for him:
        1. The alternative was Hitlery Clinton (who would certainly have been another really bad choice – potentially even worse)
        2. The media really seem to hate him, so he must be doing something right (I just haven’t figured out what that something is)
        The time to build a 3rd party to make sure there is a better alternative than Hitlery Clinton in 2020 is NOW.

        • I didn’t want to imply that Hillary would’ve been better. Not at all. This was still a good thing. A “had to happen” first step. Sometimes you have to vomit first – which is not fun – before you start feeling any better. And seeing all those long and unhappy faces among the media as election night played out… Enjoyable.
          There is a silver lining here too. This (misread & unanticipated) election result shows that Americans can keep their mouths shut and just let their ballots do the talking – in spite of overwhelming “We’re gonna win by a landslide!” psych propaganda from the leftist/cultural/media machine.
          This then can be repeated next time. Again, the media won’t be able to be so sure of the outcome before election day. Watch and see if their demeanor is more reserved at the mid-terms.
          My concern is not that Trump is a “traitor” but that he’s an idiot (like I didn’t know that long ago…) who is now surrounded by agile, subtle and opportunistic neo-cons. Almost like they planned it this way…
          What we need is Ron Paul to be drafted and forcibly remanded under escort to the White House to serve out a term at long last. Where are the Minutemen when you need them…

  2. Sadly, Trump has quickly learned that what one HOPES to do is NOT what’s going to be allowed by the Deep State.
    A figurehead is what the president is, and anyone who can’t see that isn’t looking. DT has reversed his position on almost everything I think he thought he could accomplish.
    One good threat to his family was, I’m sure, all it took for him to ‘get in line with policy’.

    • In the modern era which is post war they have all become figure heads and puppets for various vested interests (elites) to pull the strings when they want something done. I guess what now happens in the US is not a battle of political movements but a conflict between different ‘elites’ for control of the US state and body politic,

  3. i would be fine with supporting Trump, against anyone, but he will not stand up for himself.
    Even if it would save him, the family and other sellouts that he listens to will throw any investigator of Seth Rich under the bus.
    Trump is no longer on the right side. Very sad.
    So now he can face impeachment alone, with his ‘lawyers’.

    • There is nothing to impeach trump for.. unless you have evidence that the hundreds of paid professionals at the cia/nsa/fbi could not find.. do you have something like that? no? neither do they! because it never happened!
      Comey’s story falls apart on may 3, 2017 when he testified under oath that no one ever told him to stop an investigation.. he also testified that there was no evidence of collusion with trump/russia.

      • Firing those missiles at Syria, and bombing areas held by the Syrian military, are impeachable offenses (committing acts of war against a country nobody declared war on most certainly is an act of treason) — but I’m certain not a single politician calling for his impeachment will bring that one up, given their plan is to do more of that.
        Even when Clinton was impeached, they didn’t use his numerous real crimes, they impeached him over a hyped small transgression.
        Where would we get if politicians were impeached over actual wrongdoing instead of hoaxes??? We might get non-criminals into office! Unimaginable, the horrors!!!

        • Clinton was only brought to trial as the superficial charges were dismissed. But you are right that if his real crimes were revealed the trial would have been a whole lot different.

        • wait, didn’t obama bomb various countries for FIVE YEARS “without a declaration of war on any of those countries? and ARM and TRAIN ISIS?? talk to me when you bring charges against OBAMA et al! FAKE BIRTH CERTIFICATE~ Benghazi! operation fast and furious? bombing weddings in Yemen? Using drones to MURDER TWO AMERICANS “without due process” overseas “one being a teenager”.. the mass surveillance of Amercans? wake me when your hypocrisy ends!

          • I am very much in favor of bringing charges against ALL the warmongers, from Bush I to Clinton to Bush II to Obama to Trump (and all their lackeys in their administrations), and I actually did call for Obama’s impeachment over his involvement in those wars back when he was still in power.
            I don’t know who gave the order to bomb Syria either, but Trump at the very least shares some of the blame because, being commander-in-chief, he is responsible for what the military does (except when there’s a clear violation of orders, but that doesn’t seem to be the case given nobody is complaining).
            Clinton’s impeachment didn’t have any consequences because while he was impeached by the House, there was no 2/3 majority for removing him from office in the Senate afterwards.
            I think part of the reason is that he was impeached over minor charges, not his war crimes and not his crimes against the sovereignty of the people (by signing NAFTA etc).

          • without the assistance and support of the senate/congress and various government agencies,.. in most instances, the office of the president “whoever the holder may be at the time” can do nothing!
            Imo, they are all culpable, co-conspirators and accessories before, during and after the fact, by varying degrees “dependent on who their owners want a war with at the time”
            I would also point out that the so called mainstream media “a pack of proven pathological lying psychopaths” participated in each and every instance by drumming up support for every single illegal action this government of criminals has ever been involved with..
            That’s my two cents!

          • Fully agreed — all of them (maybe the media even more than the politicians) need to be prosecuted for their crimes, accessory at the very least (exception: those in senate/congress who consistently voted against every war — less than a handful).
            The US justice system sadly seems to be too broken to go after those with power (they can’t even “lock her up” even though Hitlery lost and doesn’t hold any power officially anymore) – and sadly the ICC which was (in theory) created to handle such cases is little more than a proxy for US/EU government interests.
            Maybe the time has come to hold a mock trial and sentence them in absentia to let the world know that we haven’t collectively gone insane.

          • I would contest one item with your post.. it’s not a justice system! I’m not entirely sure what one could reasonably call it.. but it has absolutely nothing to do with justice!

    • Even if Trump has done ‘stuff’ I can’t imagine that it would be anywhere on the scale of what the Clinton’s have done and they appear above what passes for the law in the US.

  4. puts on tin foil leftist hat,.. screams “it doesn’t matter if rich was the leaker, RUSSIA!”
    because we hate trump! the depth and magnitude of their insanity is astounding!
