There's A Psy-Op, All Right; But It Isn't "The Russians"

Tyler Durden's picture


Enough with “the Russians” already. This “Russian Disinformation” and “Russian Hacking” stuff is getting more ridiculous by the day.

First, don’t let the irony escape you that most, if not all, of the pundits breathlessly blaming the Russians for “fake news” and “election interference” are the very ones who were saying that Hillary Clinton was a shoe-in for president. They’re the ones who were providing her campaign with questions in advance, and allowing her people to approve/disapprove of articles.

Secondly, many of the entities blamed for spreading “Russian propaganda” were the ones with the audacity to tell the truth about the Clinton crime family and spread knowledge of the information released by Wikileaks. Obviously, I’m not including those Macedonian college kids in this, but keep in mind that they weren’t doing it for the Russians – they were doing it to make money.

This isn’t about the Russians at all, which anyone with half a brain realizes is absolutely ridiculous.

Here’s what this really is.

This is a war on the Trump presidency. It’s an attempted coup.

Maybe it’s even another effort to outright steal the presidency from Trump. Maybe there’s someone with a lot of money to throw into this “OMG THE RUSSIANS” rhetoric who really hates Russia and who really wanted Hillary Clinton to be the President. Maybe his name rhymes with “Doros.” I don’t know this for sure, but it’s at least a more likely story than “The Russians” hacking our election and deliberately spreading propaganda.

And it’s working. Ten of the Electoral College delegates have asked to be briefed on the Russian “interference” before they cast their votes on the 19th.

But that isn’t all. This is a two-for-one deal.

It’s important to note that the MSM lost every single bit of their remaining credibility during the last election and they’re desperate to get it back. It reminds me of a high school kid who gets caught doing something she shouldn’t, who then makes up stories about another group of kids to get people talking about them instead of her. The MSM can’t accept the fact that Hillary Clinton lost, despite their dishonest but enthusiastic efforts to steal the election for her.   They’ll collude with whoever they have to in order to become relevant again.

Do you really have any doubt that they’ll collude with whoever they have to in order to become relevant again?

About “The Russians”

The whole plotline about “the Russians” really took off when the Washington Post published an article listing a couple hundred websites as Russian “fake news” sites. (I know the owners of quite a few of these sites personally -as in, we’ve shared meals and wine together – and I can tell you, they’re as American as apple pie.” The Washington Post later backtracked on the accusations but did not retract the article.

And today, the New York Times was at it with an article entitled, “C.I.A. Judgment on Russia Built on Swell of Evidence.”

Except that when you consider that evidence by definition is definitive and the NYT admits everything they have is circumstantial, then, doesn’t that completely negates the headline? The article is sheer speculation, just like the WaPo article that named the “fake news” sites.

What’s more, the FBI completely disagrees with the CIA, and they’ve been very public about it. They don’t believe that there is…well, evidence. I’ll quote from WaPo here.

The competing messages, according to officials in attendance, also reflect cultural differences between the FBI and the CIA. The bureau, true to its law enforcement roots, wants facts and tangible evidence to prove something beyond all reasonable doubt. The CIA is more comfortable drawing inferences from behavior.


“The FBI briefers think in terms of criminal standards — can we prove this in court,” one of the officials said. “The CIA briefers weigh the preponderance of intelligence and then make judgment calls to help policymakers make informed decisions. High confidence for them means ‘we’re pretty damn sure.’ It doesn’t mean they can prove it in court.”

Give me a break. That, ladies and gentlemen, is why you should never, ever believe anything the Washington Post refers to as investigative journalism. They have no idea what proof or evidence even means.

There’s a psy-op, all right, but it isn’t “the Russians” perpetrating it.

It’s the CIA (keep in mind that psyops is part of their job) working hand in hand with the MSM.

You just have to laugh at some of these headlines and quotes.

For your entertainment, enjoy the following round-up of headlines promoting the “Blame Russia” sentiment.

  • Secret CIA assessment says Russia was trying to help Trump win White House (source)
  • House passes intelligence bill enhancing efforts against Russia (source)
  • Where’s the outrage over Russia’s hack of the US election?” (CNN)
  • Fake News, Russians, and Election Reversal (Town Hall)
  • A Powerful Russian Weapon: The Spread of False Stories (NY Times)
  • Experts Say Russian Propaganda Helped Spread Fake News During Election (NPR)
  • Media Wakes Up To Russia’s ‘Fake News’ Only After It Is Applied Against Hillary (Forbes)

And then, have an eyeroll at some very silly quotes…

From an interview on NPR:

“But let’s remember, this was a very close vote where just, you know, a few tens of thousands of votes in a few states ended up making the difference. So I don’t know, if you believe that the kind of information that crashes through all of our social media accounts affects how we think and potentially how we vote, I think you would conclude that this kind of stuff does matter.” (source)

From the NY Times:

“RT [Russia Today] often seems obsessed with the United States, portraying life there as hellish. On the day President Obama spoke at the Democratic National Convention, for example, it emphasized scattered demonstrations rather than the speeches. It defends the Republican presidential nominee, Donald J. Trump, as an underdog maligned by the established news media.” (source)

From a secret mystery source on CNN:

“There was no way that any one could have walked out of there with that the evidence and conclude that the Russian government was not behind this.” (source)

From CBS:

Responding to intelligence officials’ report that Russia tried to influence the U.S. presidential election in favor of President-elect Donald Trump, Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R-Arizona) on Sunday said he doesn’t know what to make of Mr. Trump’s dismissal of the issue.


“I don’t know what to make of it because it’s clear the Russians interfered,” he told CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “Whether they intended to interfere to the degree that they were trying to elect a certain candidate, I think that’s a subject of investigation. But facts are stubborn things. They did hack into this campaign.” (source)

Politico reported:

“Donald Trump’s insult-laced dismissal of reports that the CIA believes Russia hacked the 2016 election to help him is rattling a spy community already puzzled over how to gain the ear and trust of the incoming president.” (source)

While some of the efforts are laughable, the end result could be incredibly serious.

And by serious, I mean devastating. It could result in civil war. It could result in World War III.

Despite the inadvertent hilarity, this is a blatant effort to keep President-Elect Trump out of the White House and to silence the opposition.

When all dissenting voices are silenced, you’re only getting one part of the story. You’re only getting the part that those in power want you to hear. If we learned nothing else from Wikileaks, we learned that there are dark secrets about the evils of money, power, and manipulation. We learned how many conspiracy theories about the Clintons were actually facts, and we learned some things we can’t unlearn about the proclivities of some of the most powerful people in Washington.

We learned that some people will do anything to remain in power.

We’re watching them do anything right now.

Never has an election been so vehemently contested. Never has our country been so divided. If the election results are cast aside, what do you really think will happen? Do you think Trump supporters will just sigh and accept it?

And what about Russia?

Just a few months ago, we were on the verge of war with them. By scapegoating “The Russians,” if this psy-op is successful, and Trump is kept out of office, what do you think is going to happen with tensions between the two countries?

Enough with “the Russians” already. The real conspiracy is happening right here in America.

Unfortunately, most Libs don't have any where near a half of a brain...

A few primitive brain cells, maybe...

But you'd have to do a colonoscopy to detect them.

I'll be the first to admit that I was dead certain Hillary would steal the vote. My reasoning was that she's so I'll she's sure to die or at the very least be too sick to govern. So the plan seemed to be to fake her assassination and blame it on the Russians.

I had simply assumed that with a Trump victory such an eventuality was done and dusted. But now I'm not so sure. What if the electoral college refuses to elect Trump, citing "Russian influence", and then Hillary "dies" suddenly. The media will claim the Russians killed her and use it as evidence that they not only rigged the election but had now gone to drastic lengths to ensure that "their man" would get in.

If your goal is a US civil war and a war with Russia I can't think of a single more effective strategy.

And not only that, such a move has the potential to sew doubts and mistrust between China and Russia. What with Trump being pro-Russia and anti China, while Clinton is pro-China anti-Russia. The "death" of Clinton, blamed falsely on the Russians, could well be presented to China as a self-interest backstab by Russia.

The really disturbing part to me is that this is so blatant, out in the open, gloves off, Desperation.

This really is a new Information age and Forensic tracking of many kinds of corruption is possible, via the Internettywebs.

A lot of desperate dirty deed doer's are shitting their pants, the little fish will probably be fine but the bigger fish are sweating bullets, I do believe.

I think they will try to OFF Trump. I have no faith in any man and like Trump at face value, so far. If the guy turns out to be for real then I expect a billion writhing Toads of the Shit Filter Class will go to great ends to make him go away, this is really disturbing though, that the FBI and the CIA are now Political motivators !

Can you imagine having a job at the FBI or the CIA ? The Fucking Janitors make more than I will ever make, I'm much to Gringo to ever get such a sweet gig.

And the CIA and FBI are releasing fucking opinions during a post election switcheroo ?! When did that become legal and without repercussions ?

That is disturbing, the fucks at the CIA are spouting shit and they know Trump will come back at them if he makes it to the Oval Office, yet they are confident enough to risk a High Treason Charge ? That indicates a bit of Confidence, in my point of view, They are going to try and wack Trump and I pray that they fail and get a noose on pay per view, if such a thing still exists. My apologies to real toads, I'm not a raysis.

I'm of the opinion that it's not blatant gloves off's blatant gloves off arrogance!
They feel (at least they did before being exposed) that they are the one power controlling it all now and don't need to hide or use subtlety anymore.

Obama has already endorsed the coup attempt by calling for the intelligence community to conduct “a full review” of the 2016 election in light of reports of Russian interference.

We need to stop this shit, because if they manage to pull this off, 


This would lead to CIVIL WAR

Suggestion . . .

The Clintons have used Politico to publish the names of all the Electors in the US, see

Hillary and the deep state thinks they can pressure these people into switching their votes

Maybe its time to remind the Electors that they wil be held accountable for their actions by those who voted for Trump

I say we already are in a civil war; it just hasn't broken into the violent stage yet.  This is an extremely divided country and obviously those in power intend to stay there, continuing their plunder and control.  They are just stupid enough to provoke the outbreak of violence.  i hope they understand that the freedom loving right is the most heavily armed portion of the civilian population; the military, other than the top ranks, are heavily pro Trump. 

Civil war is not war of the people against government; it is war of people against people, and it will be dangerous for libtards to live in areas predominantily freedom loving and for freedom loving people to live in areas dominated by libtards. 

Read about the 1861-1865 civil war as it unfolded in border states, and recognize that all states in the developing conflict will be border states.  It will get ugly.

Civil War II ends with millions of bodies in the streets, and not a moment before then.

Whether its Real Americans or the Globolshevik Minions depends on us.

I appreciate the Civil War I example, but the Jewish takeover of Russia aka Bolshevik Revolution is more apt.

Sounds like a plan within the framework of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution that our current president uses.

Hillary Clinton is reported to be “furious” after Donald Trump picked up an extra 162 votes following Jill Stein’s $3.5 million push to recount ballots in the state.

Anybody remember the three day meeting of Soros & Friends in DC, immediately after the election?

zhandax's picture

Somebody help me out with this; as I read about the 'request' of 10 electors, I got the impression that 9 of them were democrat electors, one specifically called out as related to pelisoi. It was only mentioned in one of the early stories. Can anyone confirm that this is correct because if so, this whole story is nothing but more manufactured clickbait.

sprintjump's picture

It is the freak's daughter. Seriously.

zhandax's picture

OK, it seems drchris down thread read the same version I did.

So we have 9 hitlary electors and a the original Trump sellout requesting more information on Russian 'interference'?

Fake news my ass, these liars are still manufacturing their own headlines.

SoDamnMad's picture

And the clickbait got a lot of us.  Thanks for that info.

boattrash's picture

Zhandax, IMHO, It makes no difference who the Electors are, or who they represent. Their ultimate goal is to get some POS Federal Judge to rule in their favor, setting a Federal Precedent, thus taking even more states rights out of the election process.

Don't be confused about the appearance of the surface, as it's what you find beneath it...

I also believe this came from the Soros meeting I mentioned above. Soros also set up a "Legal Defense Fund " to represent any Electors that "Break Ranks"...
