Fake News London Guardian Kremlin Papers Report
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
US/Western dark forces never quit proving that they’re hostile to what just societies hold dear.
Time and again, their press agent media show they long ago abandoned what journalism is supposed to be — banning it on issues mattering most.
On domestic issues, they support privileged interests at the expense of most others — notably by pushing health destroying flu/covid jabs, instead of warning about their hazards.
On all things geopolitical mattering most, they stick to state-approved talking points — notably US/Western rage for control of planet earth, its resources and populations.
Days earlier, a fake news London Guardian report turned truth on its head as follows, saying:
“Vladimir Putin personally authorized (sic) a secret spy agency operation to support a ‘mentally unstable’ Donald Trump in the 2016 US presidential election during a closed session of Russia’s national security council (sic), according to…leaked Kremlin documents (sic)” — that don’t exist.
No responsible editors would permit publication of the above claim no evidence suggests, made up rubbish alone with no credibility — part of longstanding US/UK Russia bashing.
Yet in true fake news Guardian tradition, it defied reality by claiming a Trump White House “would help secure Moscow’s strategic objectives, among them ‘social turmoil’ in the US (sic) and a weakening of the American president’s negotiating position (sic).”
Not a shred of evidence was presented by the Guardian to support what it falsely called “genuine…documents.”
More bald-faced Big Lies followed, including by saying:
A so-called Kremlin “expert department recommended…’all possible force’ to ensure a Trump victory (sic).”
Time and again, phony claims like the above about Russia and other foreign nations are debunked as Big Lies that won’t die.
Throughout US history from inception to the present day, no credible evidence ever suggested foreign inference in its electoral process — what dark forces in Washington do repeatedly against other nations worldwide.
Political scientist Dov Levin earlier documented over 80 times that US dark forces interfered in the electoral process of other nations from end of WW II to year-2000.
Since then, the US illegally tried to influence the outcome of elections or overall political process in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Yemen, Egypt, Tunisia, Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Mexico, Russia, Belarus, and elsewhere.
What could a foreign nation hope to achieve by meddling in so-called US elections?
Farcical when held, both right wings of the one-party state take turns running things — serving privileged interests exclusively at the expense of ordinary people at home and abroad.
US diabolical actions also include attempted color revolutions, old-fashioned coups, political assassinations — most recently against Haiti’s president — and wars by hot and/or other means against nations free from imperial control.
In response to the Guardian’s fake news, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov called it “pulp fiction,” adding:
The report “is complete nonsense.”
It’s “the hallmark of an absolutely low-quality publication.”
“Either (it’s) trying to increase its popularity or is sticking to a rabidly Russophobic line.”
Ill-conceived trash best describes what no evidence supports because none exists — just baseless accusations with nothing supporting them.
Time and again, Russia, China, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea and other nations free from US imperial control are falsely accused of all sorts of things they had nothing to do with.
Indisputable evidence reveals US high crimes of war, against humanity, and other dirty tricks against one nation after another, targeting ones named above and many others.
In his books and Anti-Empire reports, the late William Blum documented US high crimes.
Calling them “worse than you imagine,” he once explained the following:
“If you flip over the rock of American foreign policy (throughout) the past century, this is what crawls out: invasions, bombings, (subversion), overthrowing governments, suppressing (popular) movements for social change, assassinating political leaders, perverting elections, manipulating labor unions, manufacturing ‘news,’ death squads, torture, (chemical), biological (and nuclear) warfare, (radiological contamination), drug trafficking, mercenaries,” police state repression, and endless wars on humanity.”
That’s what the scourge of US hegemonic rage is all about.
Stressing it’s not a pretty picture, Blum said it’s “enough to give imperialism a bad name.”
Millions of corpses attest to US ruthlessness, a rogue state exceeding history’s worst over a longer duration, operating globally, willing to risk destroying planet earth to own it, the human cost of its wars and other barbarism of no consequence.
Blum called democracy “America’s deadliest export,” the way it should be is abhorrent to the US and its imperial partners.
Directly and through its press agent media like the Guardian, Russia and other sovereign independent countries are bashed for not bending to higher powers in Washington, London and other Western capitals.
As for dubious Guardian claims about covert Russian support for Trump over Hillary in 2016, they’re not worth the (toilet) paper they’re written on.
A Final Comment
The Russiagate hoax throughout Trump’s tenure was all about delegitimizing his triumph over media darling Hillary — a Big Lie still refusing to die despite no evidence supporting it.
It remains one of the most shameful political chapters in US history, exceeding the worst of McCarthyism.
Ignored was House testimony by former US Director of National Intelligence James Clapper (2010 – 2017), saying:
“I never saw any direct empirical evidence that the Trump campaign or someone in it was plotting (or) conspiring with the Russians to meddle with the election,” adding:
“I do not recall any instance when I had direct evidence of” alleged Trump team-Russia collusion.
Congressional and Mueller probes were exercises in mass deception.
They found no evidence suggesting Russian meddling in the US political process because there was none.
The Mueller probe notably laid an egg, ending with a whimper, not a bang.
His 19-lawyer team, 40 FBI special agents, intelligence analysts, forensic accountants, and other professional staff spent around $25 million.
They issued 2,800 subpoenas, 500 search warrants, almost 50 orders authorizing use of pen registers, 13 requests to foreign governments for evidence, over 230 orders for communication records, interviewed about 500 individuals, and made 34 politicized indictments on dubious charges unconnected to his mandate.
Despite all of the above from May 2017 – March 2019, it struck out, finding no evidence of Russian US election interference — because there was nothing to find.
Yet phony claims otherwise remain like a bad aftertaste — the fake news Guardian report the latest example of yellow journalism instead of the real thing.
