Voting fraud, the Big Lie and the Kremlin

The propaganda war heats up
Both sides talk about “the Big Lie”

I have noticed the following petition come up on Facebook and be promoted by liberal-green friends who should know better. It’s as if they think the problem lies in two bad candidates (some sort of accident?) rather than part of a systemic problem of an empire in rapid decline.

Cancel the electtion and it will either be the last time you vote ever or there will be a couple of Establishment candidates that will keep the whole thing going, probably by upping the ante in the war against Russia, China and – ultimately – Iran.

We are getting a proponderance of articles pushing the preposterous line that Wikileaks, Trump and now – most bizarrely – FBI chief Comey is a Kremlin agent.

Now the NZ Herald is joining the chorus with an article to pull the wool over the eyes of a public that knows less than nothing about the real issues (apart from the small number of us that look into this).

Here are some comments from Pepe Escobar:


It looks like FBI Director James Comey privately argued against having the FBI sign onto that "intel" statement saying the Russian government was meddling in the US election.

CNBC was the first to report this earlier today; the source is “a former FBI official.”

Guess how the Clinton (cash) machine is spinning it; double standards, and implying Comey is a Kremlin agent.

1 November, 2016

Donald Trump's links to Russia were thrown into the spotlight today with an explosive report in Mother Jones on claims the Kremlin has been cultivating the Republican presidential nominee for five years.

Trump's ties to Russia have also been dragged into the FBI email row plaguing his rival Hillary Clinton.

The Democrat's campaign is arguing that FBI Director James Comey is applying a double standard when it comes to the presidential candidates.

On a conference call with reporters today, Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook cited a report from CNBC that said Comey opposed releasing information close to election day about Russian interference in the US election.

The AP has not confirmed that report, and the FBI declined to comment.

Mook called the report evidence of a "blatant double standard".

Comey at the weekend disclosed the FBI had newly discovered emails that may be relevant to the Clinton email investigation.

Clinton and her campaign have raged against that timing, saying Comey deviated from Justice Department policy when he alerted Congress to the new discovery so close to Election Day.

Mook called on Comey to "immediately explain this incongruence and apply the same standard to Donald Trump's associates as he has applied to Hillary Clinton's."

In other developments on Trump's links to Russia:

- NBC News reported that the FBI has been conducting a preliminary inquiry into Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort's foreign business connections. Manafort told NBC News "none of it is true ... There's no investigation going on by the FBI that I'm aware of". He said he had never had ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. NBC News reported in August that Manafort was involved business dealings with Russian and Ukrainian oligarchs.
Slate today reports that Trump had a secure server link to a Russian oligarch's bank which was shut down.

- And a former senior intelligence officer for a Western country told Mother Jones that he provided the FBI with memos, based on interactions with Russian sources, maintaining that the Russian Government tried to "co-opt and assist Trump". The spy said that the FBI requested more information from him.

Mother Jones reports that in June, the spy was asked to research Trump's dealings in Russia for an opposition research project originally financed by a Republican client. The project's financing switched to a client allied with Democrats.

Mother Jones reported that a memo as part of that work said: "Russian regime has been cultivating, supporting and assisting TRUMP for at least 5 years. Aim, endorsed by PUTIN, has been to encourage splits and divisions in western alliance."

The magazine says it maintained that Trump "and his inner circle have accepted a regular flow of intelligence from the Kremlin, including on his Democratic and other political rivals".
It claimed that Russian intelligence had "compromised" Trump during his visits to Moscow and could "blackmail him". It also reported that Russian intelligence had compiled a dossier on Clinton.

And now NYT sources say FBI looked and didn't find Putin/Trump connection, including via Alfa server

However, the New York Times reports that while the FBI investigated a possible Russian role in the campaign, "law enforcement officials say that none of the investigations so far have found any link between Mr Trump and the Russian Government".

Also today, the head of MI5 has warned that Russia is adopting an "increasingly aggressive" approach to pursuing its foreign policy goals, including propaganda, spying and cyber-attacks.
The Security Service's director general Andrew Parker said Russia had been a "covert threat" for decades but there were now more methods available for its agents to use.
Parker told the Guardian that Vladimir Putin's Russia "increasingly seems to define itself by opposition to the west and seems to act accordingly".

BREAKING: ABC Uncovers MILLIONS Of Payments From Russia To Trump, Campaign Panics

ABC News investigative journalist Brian Ross released a news piece that could end any type of credibility Donald Trump may have left. In this newest report, Ross found Trump’s Russian connections to have a bigger role in his life than he’s lead on. This could be a direct conflict of interest for Trump if he should become elected president in Novembe

Howard Dean paints James Comey as puppet of Vladimir Putin

Howard Dean

It seems that for Democrats, anyone enforcing the law and investigating allegations of lawlessness are now puppets of Russian President Vladimir Putin. On Saturday, Howard Dean issued a tweet telling the world that FBI Director James Comey is “on the side of Putin.”

Ironically Comey put himself on the same side as Putin.

Here is RT talking to Joaquin Flores about the alleged Russian connection

"Republicans Are Using The 'Big Lie' To Steal Our Right To Vote"

Thom Hartmann is someone I used to have a lot more respect for than I do now he speaks in half-truths about abrupt climate change and, here, uses Adolf Hitler and the Big Lie to create the impression that it is the Republicans,not the Democrats that are stealing the election.

Of course, all governments (notably the Republican) have all engaged in electoral fraud since the 2000 election. But this time it is the Democrats who are in power and are stealing the election (notably from Bernie Sanders suppporters during the primaries).

I am sure that the Reoublicans are still up to their old tricks (the whole thing is totally corrupt from bottom to top.

The main problem seems to be, not double voting, as claimed by Hartmann but manipulation of voting machines and the sort of tactics used by the the DNC during the primaries and encountered by people trying to vote early.

I would love to see Thom Hartmann explain this away as part of the Big Lie

It is a little odd to find Thom Hartman quoting Greg Palast who has done more than most to reveal voter fraud under George W Bush as well as in the recent priamries.

Here is Debbie, the Sane Progressive talking about voter fraud. I wonder if she is part of the ‘Big Lie’ or is she just a dupe of the Kremin -lol?

And here is the person who has done the most to reveal the manipulation of voting machines, although, perhaps the fact that she is talking to Alex Jones disqualifies her (lol).
