With the Democrats, the entire mainstream media and John McCain and Lindsey Graham all hysterically hyping a “secret” CIA report that allegedly proves that the Russians hacked the election the Donald earned the wrath of the establishment by dismissing it all as politically motivated horseshit. With pro-Clinton advocates fanning out across the Sunday morning blabfests, Trump went on Fox News Sunday and defied the conventional wisdom that he only won the presidency due to the largesse of one Vladimir V. Putin.
As reported by The Hill “Trump: ‘Ridiculous’ to think Russia intervened in election”:
President-elect Donald Trump is blasting a recent report that concluded Russia intervened in the U.S. presidential election to help him win the presidency.
“I think it’s ridiculous. I think it’s just another excuse. I don’t believe it,” the president-elect said in an interview that aired Sunday on “Fox News Sunday.”
“I don’t know why and I think it’s just — you know, they talked about all sorts of things. Every week it’s another excuse.”
The president-elect went on to tout his “massive landslide victory” in the Electoral College.
The Washington Post reported on Friday that a secret CIA assessment concluded Russia intervened in the U.S. presidential election to help Trump win the White House.
According to the report, the intelligence agencies have identified various people who helped the Russian government leak hacked documents from Democratic sources, including the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, to WikiLeaks.
When asked if he thinks the CIA is trying to overturn the election results, Trump said during the Fox News interview he doesn’t think “they’re saying anything.”
“If you look at the story and you take a look at what they said, there’s great confusion. Nobody really knows, and hacking is very interesting,” Trump said.
“Once they hack if you don’t catch them in the act you’re not going to catch them. They have no idea if it’s Russia or China or somebody. It could be somebody sitting in a bed some place. I mean, they have no idea.”
He said he thinks the story is being pushed by the Democrats after they suffered “one of the greatest defeats in the history of politics in this country.”
“And frankly, I think they’re putting it out. And it’s ridiculous,” Trump said.
While Trump will no doubt be drawn and quartered by presstitutes and politicians alike in the Monday news cycle he may be onto something.
According to an interesting article on the Washington Post’s slimy blacklisting of 200 + independent media websites and the shadowy group behind it, journalist Mark Ames notes a bizarre detail in the Democrats’ campaign to paint Trump as a Kremlin puppet. The vulgar campaign of red-baiting and smear-mongering by Hillary and the Democrats seems to have at least some roots with a Ukrainian DNC operative named Alexandra Chalupa – yes, it’s spelled just like the Taco Bell value menu item – who has been spoon-feeding propaganda to Clinton friendly journalists to establish the narrative that Trump is a traitor.
I excerpt the following from an article published by Naked Capitalism (which is suing the Washington Post over the fake news blacklist) entitled “Site Behind Washington Post’s McCarthyite Blacklist Appears To Be Linked to Ukrainian Fascists and CIA Spies”:
One of the key media sources who blamed the DNC hacks on Russia, ramping up fears of crypto-Putinist infiltration, is a Ukrainian-American lobbyist working for the DNC. She is Alexandra Chalupa—described as the head of the Democratic National Committee’s opposition research on Russia and on Trump, and founder and president of the Ukrainian lobby group “US United With Ukraine Coalition”, which lobbied hard to pass a 2014 bill increasing loans and military aid to Ukraine, imposing sanctions on Russians, and tightly aligning US and Ukraine geostrategic interests.
In October of this year, Yahoo News named Chalupa one of “16 People Who Shaped the 2016 Election” for her role in pinning the DNC leaks on Russian hackers, and for making the case that the Trump campaign was under Kremlin control. “As a Democratic Party consultant and proud Ukrainian-American, Alexandra Chalupa was outraged last spring when Donald Trump named Paul Manafort as his campaign manager,” the Yahoo profile began. “As she saw it, Manafort was a key figure in advancing Russian President Vladimir Putin’s agenda inside her ancestral homeland — and she was determined to expose it.”
Chalupa worked with veteran reporter Michael Isikoff of Yahoo News to publicize her opposition research on Trump, Russia and Paul Manafort, as well as her many Ukrainian sources. In one leaked DNC email earlier this year, Chalupa boasts to DNC Communications Director Luis Miranda that she brought Isikoff to a US-government sponsored Washington event featuring 68 Ukrainian journalists, where Chalupa was invited “to speak specifically about Paul Manafort.” In turn, Isikoff named her as the key inside source “proving” that the Russians were behind the hacks, and that Trump’s campaign was under the spell of Kremlin spies and sorcerers.
(In 2008, when I broke the story about the Manafort-Kremlin ties in The Nation with Ari Berman, I did not go on to to accuse him or John McCain, whose campaign was being run by Manafort’s partner, of being Manchurian Candidates under the spell of Vladimir Putin. Because they weren’t; instead, they were sleazy, corrupt, hypocritical politicians who followed money and power rather than principle. A media hack feeding frenzy turned Manafort from what he was—a sleazy scumbag—into a fantastical Kremlin mole, forcing Manafort to resign from the Trump campaign, thanks in part to kompromat material leaked by the Ukrainian SBU, successor to the KGB.)
Meanwhile, Chalupa’s Twitter feed went wild accusing Trump of treason—a crime that carries the death penalty. Along with well over 100 tweets hashtagged #TreasonousTrump Chalupa repeatedly asked powerful government officials and bodies like the Department of Justice to investigate Trump for the capital crime of treason. In the weeks since the election, Chalupa has repeatedly accused both the Trump campaign and Russia of rigging the elections, demanding further investigations. According to The Guardian, Chalupa recently sent a report to Congress proving Russian hacked into the vote count, hoping to initiate a Congressional investigation. In an interview with Gothamist, Chalupa described alleged Russian interference in the election result as “an act of war.”
Ames is hardly a fan of Putin, his Moscow-based satirical newspaper the Exile was raided by Russian government goons in 2008 which led to him closing up shop and fleeing the country.
Former DNC Operative Alexandra Chalupa
Ms. Chalupa – who vaguely resembles a Slavish Monica Lewinsky – is quite the prolific Tweeter and a sampling of her work shows not only a hostility towards Trump but a pattern of doing the hard sell on the meme embraced by Hillary and her leftist totalitarians:
A look at her Twitter feed shows that she may as well have been writing the daily talking points for Hillary and the Dems for the last six months and as a DNC operative, maybe she was.
Now let this sink in for a minute, with a Ukrainian operative being the proverbial nigger in the woodpile at DNC who is feeding stories to selected media sources that Trump is an agent of Putin and the Russians who was really acting on behalf of a foreign power in this election?
While Ames does not allege that Chalupa is behind the group promoting WAPO’s blacklist he does present compelling food for thought that it is at least partially the work of Ukrainian fascists. Like the type who none other than John McCain was palling around with right before Viktor Yanukovych was toppled in what for all appearances was a U.S. State Department backed coup. McCain delivered a rousing speech to the mobs that would run rampant in ousting the democratically elected leader – two months prior to the actual coup:
Not only was McCain slithering around in Kiev but so was Joe Biden – albeit after the overthrow of Yanukovych – and surprise surprise, his cokehead son Hunter Biden ended up landing a position on the board of Ukraine’s largest private gas company shortly after daddy paid a visit.
The media spent all Sunday touting the “bipartisan” support for a congressional investigation of Trump and “Russian” election meddling a mere week before the Electoral College casts their votes.
Trump is for a foreign policy that puts America first, the same can’t be said of Hillary, McCain and their ilk.
Starting to smell a rat yet?
