Five Weird Conspiracy Theories From CIA Director Mike Pompeo

Authored by Adam Garrie via The Duran,

Mike Pompeo sounds increasingly unhinged when talking about Russia, Wikileaks and the media.

In a tirade against Russia based news outlets RT and Sputnik, Donald Trump’s CIA Director Mike Pompeo blasted Russia for interfering not only in the 2016 US Presidential election but “the one before that and the one before that”. This would imply that Russia helped install Barack Obama in the White House even after his severely anti-Russian foreign policy became well known.

These statements are blasted by Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in the following way:

If (Pompeo’s) statements mean that we interfered in the elections in 2008 and 2012 that means that President Obama owes us his victories. I’ll refrain from comment. In my opinion, this crosses the lines of what is reasonable.

Pompeo’s assertion came after a tirade in which he said that Russia’s current Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov helped develop a ‘propaganda’ strategy which underlies RT and Sputnik’s alleged purpose. Pompeo further asserted that Gerasimov did this in the early 1970s. According to Pompeo:

His (Gerasimov’s) idea was that you can win wars without firing a single shot, with firing a very few shots in ways that are decidedly not militaristic. And that’s what happened

What changes is the cost to effectuate change through cyber and through RT and Sputnik, the news outlets and through other soft means has just really been lowered. It used to be expensive to run an ad on a television station. Now you simply go online and propagate your message, so they have found an effective tool, an easy way to go reach into our systems and into our culture to achieve the outcome they are looking for.

The ludicrousness of this claim can be easily debunked when one learns that General Gerasimov was born in 1955. If one can conservatively say that 1973 was the ‘early 1970s’, this means that Gerasimov developed a communications strategy that relied on the internet being up to 2017 standards when he was 18 years of age. There is simply no logic in Pompeo’s assertions.

This is the same Mike Pompeo who has told some rather strange tall-tales about Wikileak’s founder Julian Assange while simultaneously calming that RT is part of Wikileaks.

In April of 2017, Pompeo stated:

It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is – a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia. In January of this year, our Intelligence Community determined that Russian military intelligence—the GRU—had used WikiLeaks to release data of US victims that the GRU had obtained through cyber operations against the Democratic National Committee. And the report also found that Russia’s primary propaganda outlet, RT, has actively collaborated with WikiLeaks.

He then stated:

No, I am quite confident that had Assange been around in the 1930s and 40s and 50s, he would have found himself on the wrong side of history.

So to recap, the following are Mike Pompeo’s most ludicrous conspiracy theories:

1. Russia’s current Chief of the General Staff invented the concept of RT and Sputnik, one which relies on the power of the internet in 2017, in the early 1970s when he was in his late teens and still in the equivalent of high school.


2. Russia interfered in the US elections in 2008, 2012 and 2016, meaning that Russia supported Barack Obama who was the most anti-Russian US President in modern memory, but no one noticed this Russian interference at the time.


3. RT collaborates with Wikileaks which is a hostile intelligence agency rather than an on-line publisher.


4. Julian Assange, a self-styled free speech advocate and anti-war activist would have supported Hitler in the 1930s and 1940s.


5. RT and Sputnik are supported by Russia because they are cheaper than going to war. This is ostensibly a bad thing in Pompeo’s view.

Mike Pompeo seems like less of an intelligence chief than a simplistic conspiracy theories.

You all are aware this entire Russia Narrative is nothing more than a badly scripted propaganda Psychological Operation right?

Seems as though everyone & their mothers are aware of this irrefutable FACT except the Pure Evil Criminal Deep State Intelligence Agencies themselves which Scripted it.
Amateur night. It truly is.

Yesterday, one of the local consumers of MSM told me, "Without doubt Russia hacked the elections to help Trump".I asked him, "Russia hacked what?""DNC server; and gave it to wikileaks; and wikileaks published it; so Clinton lost the elections"."Ok; agreed; what was so damaging in those emails that people refused to vote for her? And why did she do those things?""..........................................................................................................................................................................."His expression was priceless. He remained silent for two minutes, and admitted he never thought of that. Then I gently told him he had been taken for a ride; to read for himself, and not to swallow whatever was put before him. One red pill at a time.

In Hillary's own words, she lost because Wikileaks leaked her emails and the voters found out what a scuzz she is.Also revealed in the Emails, was Hillary's Pied Piper strategy in which she ordered the news media to push Trump as the Republican candidate, so Hillary could run against an unelectable pushover.In other words it was the Hillary Clinton campaign that hacked the election not the Russians.

Donald Trump’s CIA Director Mike Pompeo blasted Russia for interfering not only in the 2016 US Presidential election but “the one before that and the one before that”.My response: While there are many differing opinions about President TRUMP's team, I do believe that the 2008, 2012 elections were rigged and influenced by nefarious sources. OBAMA should NEVER, EVER been elected to the POTUS office.There are days where I believe that OBAMA was a curse from GOD on America. He reminds me of KING AHAB in the Book of 2Kings.

A Timeline of CIA Atrocities
By Steve Kangas

The following timeline describes just a few of the hundreds of atrocities and crimes committed by the CIA. (1)

CIA operations follow the same recurring script. First, American business interests abroad are threatened by a popular or democratically elected leader. The people support their leader because he intends to conduct land reform, strengthen unions, redistribute wealth, nationalize foreign-owned industry, and regulate business to protect workers, consumers and the environment. So, on behalf of American business, and often with their help, the CIA mobilizes the opposition. First it identifies right-wing groups within the country (usually the military), and offers them a deal: "We'll put you in power if you maintain a favorable business climate for us." The Agency then hires, trains and works with them to overthrow the existing government (usually a democracy). It uses every trick in the book: propaganda, stuffed ballot boxes, purchased elections, extortion, blackmail, sexual intrigue, false stories about opponents in the local media, infiltration and disruption of opposing political parties, kidnapping, beating, torture, intimidation, economic sabotage, death squads and even assassination. These efforts culminate in a military coup, which installs a right-wing dictator. The CIA trains the dictator’s security apparatus to crack down on the traditional enemies of big business, using interrogation, torture and murder. The victims are said to be "communists," but almost always they are just peasants, liberals, moderates, labor union leaders, political opponents and advocates of free speech and democracy. Widespread human rights abuses follow.

This scenario has been repeated so many times that the CIA actually teaches it in a special school, the notorious "School of the Americas." (It opened in Panama but later moved to Fort Benning, Georgia.) Critics have nicknamed it the "School of the Dictators" and "School of the Assassins." Here, the CIA trains Latin American military officers how to conduct coups, including the use of interrogation, torture and murder.…

We are all being played, and the purpose is indeed to take down America, but Russia is a minor player at best. The NWO is global and has to take down America (temporarily), since we wouldn't get behind Hillary, in order to disarm the American people and achieve their global government. no doubt they will use Russia or anyone else they can to achieve their goals, but to blame Russia alone is just stupid.

Turkey is aligning away from NATO. Syria and Lebanon are aligning with Russia. Iran and Iraq ditto. Qatar is aligning away from the US. Philippines and Singapore are aligning away from US (aka ISIS terrorism). Egypt is mediating between Syria and US terrorists to extend reconciliation. China is looking to refinance ME redevelopment. Japan is looking to buying into a RUssian gas pipeline. SOuth Korea doesn't want part of US actions against China. Hungary and Austria oppose the Zionist migrant invasion scheme. Germany opposes more Russian sanctions.

Then there's this.

There's no wonder the US Deep State is panicking.

Wouldn't Michael look just super with a "bindi" on his forehead that doubles as a .45 calibre "bullet hole"?...

And trust me folks if you ain't thinkin that way he'll gladly do it to your ass with or without you wearin camo!

I'll give you a hint...

He's sayin all this wild shit about the Russians because the salary that is paid to him is denominated in a currency that is $155 trillion in the "shitter" with NO demonstrable control over the World's energy resources that pay for his "job"... Most significantly (Russia's energy) that must sell that energy in USD in order for him to stay "gainfully employed"!!!

Can he tell everyone how many governments around the world that the CIA has overthrown? And how many of those leaders were murdered?

RT is shooting fish in a barrel with its propaganda against America because America is constantly doing stupid, wasteful, corrupt, evil shit within and outside its borders. They don't have to make anything up.
