Not Russia, Interfered in the US Presidential
By Paul Craig Roberts
- Unlike Oliver Stone, who knew how to
interview Vladimir Putin, Megyn Kelly did not.
Thus, she made a fool of herself, which is par
for her course.
entire Western media has joined Megyn in
foolishness, or so it appears from a RT report.
James O’Keefe has senior CNN producer John
Bonifield on video telling O’Keefe that CNN’s
anti-Russia reporting is purely for ratings:
“It’s mostly bullshit right now. Like, we don’t
have any big giant proof.” CNN’s Bonifield is
reported to go on to say that “our CIA is doing
shit all the time, we’re out there trying to
course, the American people, the European
peoples, and the US and European governments are
being conditioned by the “Russia did it”
storyline to distrust Russia and to accept
whatever dangerous and irresponsible policy
toward Russia that Washington comes up with
anti-Russian propaganda driven by ratings as
Bonifield is reported to claim, or are ratings
the neoconservatives and military/security
complex’s cover for media disinformation that
increases tensions between the superpowers and
prepares the ground for nuclear war?
acknowleges that the entire story could be just
another piece of false news, which is all that
the Western media is known for.
Nevertheless, what we do know is that the fake
news reporting pertains to Russia’s alleged
interference in the US presidential election.
Allegedly, Trump was elected by Putin’s
interference in the election. This claim is
absurd, but if you are Megyn Kelly you lack the
IQ to see that. Instead, presstitutes turn a
nonsense story into a real story despite the
absence of any evidence.
actually interfered in the US presidential
election, Putin or the presstitutes themselves?
The answer is clear and obvious. It was the
presstitutes, who were out to get Trump from day
one of the presidential campaign. It is CIA
director John Brennan, who did everything in his
power to brand Trump some sort of Russian agent.
It is FBI director Comey who did likewise by
continuing to “investigate” what he knew was a
non-event. We now have a former FBI director
playing the role of special prosecutor
investigating Trump for “obstruction of justice”
when there is no evidence of a crime to be
obstructed! What we are witnessing is the
ongoing interference in the presidential
election, an interference that not only makes a
mockery of democracy but also of the rule of
presstitutes not only interfered in the
presidential election; they are now interfering
with democracy itself. They are seeking to
overturn the people’s choice by discrediting the
President of the United States and those who
elected him. The Democratic Party is a part of
this attack on American democracy. It is the DNC
that insists that a Putin/Trump conspiracy stole
the presidency from Hillary. The Democrats’
position is that it is too risky to permit the
American people—the “deplorables”— to vote. The
Democratic Party’s line is that if you let
Americans vote, they will elect a Putin stooge
and America will be ruled by Russia.
wonder why Trump doesn’t use the power of the
office of the presidency to indict the hit squad
that is out to get him. There is no doubt that a
jury of deplorables would indict Brennan, Comey,
Megyn Kelly and the rest. On the other hand,
perhaps Trump’s view is that the Republican
Party cannot afford to go down with him, and,
therefore, as he is politically protected by the
Republican majority, the best strategy is to let
the Democrats and the presstitutes destroy
themselves in the eyes of flyover America.
our survival as Americans depends on is the
Russians’ view of this conflict between a US
President who intended to reduce the tensions
between the nuclear powers and those determined
to increase the tensions. The Russian high
command has already announced its conclusion
that Washington is preparing a surprise nuclear
attack on Russia. It is not possible to image a
more dangerous conclusion. So far, no one in
Washington or any Western government has made an
effort to reassure Russia that no such attack is
being prepared. Instead, the calls are for more
punishment of Russia and more tension.
most extraordinary of failures demonstrates the
complete separation of the West from reality.
difficult to image a more extreme danger than
for the insouciant West to convince Russia that
the West is incapable of rational behavior. But
that is precisely what the West is doing.
