Washington Post-CIA connections destroy Post’s “election hack” claim

“The CIA says” is never a great way to start a sentence. But that’s the basis of the latest charge that Russia hacked the US presidential election.

Members of Congress have now been secretly briefed by the CIA on “the Russian affair,” and media, led by the Washington Post, are running with the story that Russia influenced the US election on the side of Trump.

Until and unless the denizens of Langley decide to show specific and convincing evidence for their claim, this is disinformation.

It’s easy to assemble a circumstantial case. But each case has to be judged on its own merits, and the devil is in the details. If we aren’t privy to those details in the “Russian affair,” no judgement is possible. Of course, major media outlets don’t seem bothered by that. They’re happy to cite the CIA as an authority—conveniently ignoring the fact that people in the intelligence field are taught to lie. It’s their stock in trade.

You might remember the Washington Post’s role in defaming and destroying Gary Webb, who, in 1996, published a series of articles in the Mercury News about the CIA seeding black Los Angeles neighborhoods with crack cocaine. The Post basically asked the CIA whether the charge was true, and when the Agency denied it, the Post attacked Webb as a “fake news” reporter. The same Washington Post is now leading the campaign to tie the Russian government to Hillary Clinton’s defeat. And the Post, once again, is using unproven statements from the CIA to back up their claim.

I could go on and on about the Post and its historic CIA ties. But now, right now, the owner of the Post is Jeff Bezos, who also owns Amazon. And Amazon has a $600 million contract to provide the CIA cloud computing services.

Boom.

Ordinarily, that would be called a fatal conflict of interest, whenever the Post opens up its yap about the CIA in any context.

However, mainstream news outlets, the very big ones, don’t go around criticizing each other’s ownerships; so the Bezos-CIA relationship is conveniently ignored and left “in the past.”

An honest lead paragraph on the current Russia-CIA-Trump allegations in the Post, however, would start this way:

“Our paper is owned by Jeff Bezos, and Jeff is making $600 million to provide the CIA with computing services, so take everything below with a grain of salt the size of Langley.”

Going one step further, Amazon and the CIA are both in the data-collecting business. What are the chances that Amazon, in the interest of “national security,” has been sharing its massive customer data with the CIA and other US intelligence agencies?

This should lead to another conflict-of-interest statement from the Washington Post: “As you read any article in our paper, keep in mind that our owner may be data-mining you and passing the information to the CIA. Have a nice day.”

Am I being too hard on Amazon? Do they have the basic guts to stand up to the intelligence community and resist its demands? Here is what author Norman Solomon had to say about that in 2014 (Huffington Post):

“Amazon’s trajectory into the CIA’s spooky arms may be a bit more than just corporate eagerness to land a lucrative contract. In late 2010 — amid intense public interest in documents that WikiLeaks was posting to illuminate U.S. actions overseas — Amazon took a notable step. As the Guardian reported at the time, Amazon ‘pulled the plug on hosting the whistleblowing website in reaction to heavy political pressure.’

“It didn’t take much for Amazon to cave. ‘The company announced it was cutting WikiLeaks off … only 24 hours after being contacted by the staff of Joe Lieberman, chairman of the Senate’s committee on homeland security,’ the Guardian noted.”

Let’s see. In 2010, Amazon cuts off WikiLeaks, proving its willingness to cave to the intelligence community.

In 2013, Jeff Bezos, the owner of Amazon, buys the Washington Post.

In 2016, during the presidential campaign, WikiLeaks releases tons of email data exposing Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee, and associated players.

In 2016, after Clinton loses, the CIA—now Amazon’s business partner, and by extension, the Washington Post’s business partner—tells the Post that Russia influenced the election on behalf of Trump, and also implies/asserts that Russian hackers supplied Wikileaks with those tons of email data…

And the Washington Post accepts what its business partner, the CIA, is saying at face value and then leads the charge to blame Russia for handing the election to Trump.

The Post doubles down and absurdly accuses numerous sites and blogs of being a) “fake” and b) conscious or unconscious dupes of the Russian government.

A nice neat package.

Who exactly is the fake news outlet?

    BUT MY GOD, WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO US AND OUR COUNTRY IF ALL OF THIS DEVIL SENT CRIMINAL RICO PUBLIC CORRUPTION & JUDICIAL TREASON WAS EFFECTIVELY PURGED FROM OUR FEDERAL, STATE & COUNTY GOVERNMENTS? PLUS IF THE GRAVY TRAIN CEASED TO RUN ANY LONGER AND ALL THE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF TAX PAYOR WASTE, UNACCOUNTED FOR FUNDS AND OVER EXPENDATURES FOR UN-NEEDED PROGRAMS & OVER PAID OFFICIALS NO LONGER EXISTED, WHAT WOULD WE DO WITH ALL OF THE EXTRA MONEY? WE WOULD NO LONGER HAVE ANY EXCUSE FOR NOT PAYING OFF THE MORTGAGE ON THE WHITE HOUSE TO CHINA.

    Tut tut, Suna,

    You failed to promote this explanation from the very same article,

    “One [Biblical] verse might prophesise you must love all foreign nationals (goyim) as brothers, when others insist invaders only warrant abject hatred. Phonetically Satan is the combination of “sat” and “an”. In fact readers will be shocked that this is a merger of “truthful purity” and the “highest God” (An) from Sanskrit; a lofty language that stems from Atlantis.”

    Are you your own “propaganda machine”?

    I realise a closed mind like you would refuse to read my book at gunpoint, but please treat me with respect.

    There is NO evidence supporting pizza gate, only WORDS. “Bubble & squeak” idealistic “explanations” that “suit the cause” are a million miles adrift of tried and tested etymological reviews that harmonise “spurious links”.

    On the other hand, “where’s there’s smoke there’s fire”, so what’s the fire?

    My final comment.

    I looked at OZZIE THINKER’s website in my investigation of PIZZAGATE, his comment is quite stunning in light of the EVIDENCE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4OP–ZXOjc

    this is one of the statements I found on his website :

    “My book “The Beauty of Existence Decoded” explains what is meant by the corruption of Satan (divinity of God). It is, for my research, the only source on the planet that presents truth plainly”
    People of GOD-make your own judgement

    I agree SUNA, it is NWO. These people are so sick that it amazes me that they are allowed to roam free in the population. They are a threat to humanity.
    Thank you for your comments!

    More or less true, I do think while the two parties are corrupt and involved in PIZZAGATE as it is an international NWO club, but I do think they are two factions that vie for power also
    Thank you

    And all of this is brought to you courtesy of John McCain and other right wingers along with Joe Leiberman and others on the left. There are just as many pedo’s and perverts on the right and many have engaged in these same activities along with those mentioned. As I stated in an article before the election, the Republicans wanted Clinton in there just as bad as the Democrats did. Two wings of the same bird…. you just think there is a difference.
