It seems, very far from the responsible, reasonable truth and explanations, indeed:
The media has started backing away from the Russia collusion hoax. Many seem to know a reckoning is coming.. . . . the media has started backing away from the Russia collusion hoax . . . many of the media perpetrators seem to know a reckoning is coming. Politico warned Trump haters, “Prepare for disappointment.” Other examples of expectation managing can be found, such as here, here, here, and here. Mueller’s longtime top deputy at the FBI recently warned, “A public narrative has built an expectation that the special counsel will explain his conclusions, but I think that expectation may be seriously misplaced.” . . . .Most recently, the Senate Judiciary Committee announced that after almost two years of investigation, it has uncovered no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Attorneys assigned to the Mueller team have quietly begun to slip away before the outcome of the investigation is made public (here, here, and here).
This is unsurprising. The Russia hoax is crumbling and people can’t run away fast enough. We’ve seen signs from the very beginning that many of the people who promoted the Trump-Russia collusion smear have always known it was a hoax. These signs have been in plain sight . . . . On May 19, 2017, FBI agent Peter Strzok wrote FBI lawyer (and his paramour) Lisa Page his assessment of the Trump-Russia collusion accusations after nearly a year-long investigation: “There’s no big there there.” In June 2017, the following month, CNN’s Van Jones was secretly recorded saying, “The Russia thing is just a big nothingburger. There’s nothing there you can do.”
Bob Woodward of Watergate fame has been saying for some time that there’s no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion. Michael Isakoff of Yahoo news, who did some of the early Trump-Russia reporting, has admitted that many of the Trump-Russia claims are “likely false.” . . . .
According to the conspiracy boosters, the leader of a hostile foreign power is using blackmail (kompromat) to control President Trump (see here, here, here, here, here, here, and here). In this last link, the New York Intelligencer asks whether our president would be meeting with his “counterpart or his handler” in a summit between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. If that’s true, then Putin has control of both the U.S. and Russian nuclear arsenals!
Yet the special counsel has allowed President Trump to complete more than half of his first term without filing a report with Congress . . . . [while several investigations have also taken years] None of those scandals involved the accusation that a Russian agent occupied the White House . . . .
the same people Clinton hired to paint Trump as colluding with the Russians also appeared to have been involved with setting up the June 9, 2016 meeting.
First, (as reported by Reuters) the very same contractor Hillary Clinton hired (Fusion GPS) to create the Trump-Russia dossier also created the “dirt” on Hillary Clinton that was used to bait Trump Jr. into attending the meeting. If the Russians at the Trump Tower meeting represented the people who hacked the Democratic National Committee (DNC) server, then why wouldn’t they bring the hacked emails to the meeting? And why would Hillary’s subcontractor be the source of the dirt?
Also, don’t forget, Fusion GPS met with Veselnitskaya immediately before and after the meeting. Fusion GPS had pre-existing relationships with both of the Russians in the room, yet media deliberately ignore this crucial fact . . . . [and much more, read the story here]So, let us take due note, especially as Christians who are in the media's cross-hairs.
And, let us remember principles for sound media:
This leads to a money shot question:
If it is increasingly credible that we have been manipulated on this matter for years on end with the major media by and large marching in lockstep, how many other things we think we know because the media told us so are false or ill-founded or are outright cases of calculated propaganda and deceit?
To be forewarned is to be forearmed. END
