Is Mueller Going To Change The Russian Narrative?

The media has been providing hints.

The media has been providing hints that they see Israeli collusion in their Trump narrative.

Israeli collusion with the Trump campaign? It’s about as rational as anything else Robert Mueller is investigating! And George Papadapoulos’ wife claims he had to plead guilty to Mueller or else be prosecuted as an Israeli agent. Papadapoulos’ lawyer denied it, but that hasn’t prevented the Washington Post from making other connections.

Thus, the Tablet reports, “How Russiagate Became Israelgate.

However, an article in the Washington Post on Mangiante’s claim suggests that the 29-year-old former Trump adviser’s ostensible ties to Israel have become a subject of general interest, albeit thinly sourced. The Post reports that Papadapoulos wrote for Israeli publications, including Haaretz, and struck up an acquaintance with a Netanyahu aide, Eli Groner.

Writing for an Israeli newspaper and being friends with an Israeli in a government position is hardly evidence of collusion. But it might be enough for a desperate media.

He shows that this kind of accusation would fit Mueller’s history. Then he points to more media “hints.”

Hints of a Jewish conspiracy that was part of or behind the Trump-Russia collusion theory have long circulated among the conspiracy-mongers and in the press. In his November 14, 2017 testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson said that the Jewish diaspora “appears to be a very interesting route for the Russians.” The Steele dossier, which was marketed by Simpson’s company, elaborates on that claim. The FSB, claims one of Steele’s ostensible sources, was approaching “U.S. citizens of Russian (Jewish) origin on business trips to Russia” as potential foreign agents.

In April 2017, Politico picked up on the theme with a story about the alleged ties between Trump, Putin, Jared Kushner, and a “happy-go-lucky Jewish group” called Chabad, “the most sprawling Jewish institution in the world.” Tablet reported that Fusion GPS was believed to be the source for the Politico story. The ostensible Trump-Putin-Chabad link appeared in the press again, including on the BBC, with the arrest of Michael Cohen, and was also quickly disproved.

That the collusion spotlight has now focused more intensely on Israel and the Jews in a story that’s ostensibly about Russia and Donald Trump makes a weird kind of sense. As a conspiracy theory becomes larger, incorporates more actors and institutions, points to more events, more connections, it shows more gaps in its logic. As the conspiracy theorists struggle to explain or reconcile contradictions in their accounts, the pull towards the deus ex machina of all conspiracy theories—the powerful, wealthy, rootless, cosmopolitan wanderers of the earth—only gets stronger.

Ocasio-Cortez Not Happy Trump Called Her AOC During Debate; Says It’s Sexist

Published

on

During the last presidential debate held on Thursday night, President Donald Trump referred to everyone’s least favorite Democratic Socialist, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, by her initials, “AOC,” which pretty much everyone calls her by. However, it appears this did not settle well with her. In fact, she considered it to be sexist and demands that the president call her “congresswoman.” Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “I wonder if Republicans understand how much they advertise their disrespect of women in debates when they consistently call women members of Congress by nicknames or first names while using titles & last names when referring to men of = stature. Women notice. It conveys a lot,” she tweeted. “AOC is a name given to me by community & the people. Y’all can call me AOC. Government colleagues referring to each other in a public or professional context (aka who don’t know me like that) should refer to their peers as ‘Congresswoman,’ ‘Representative,’ etc. Basic respect 101,” she continued. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1319497076842110976 https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1319499191551447041 The responses to AOC’s tweet were varied, with a lot of conservatives pointing out that there’s a big difference between nicknames and the use of a person’s initials. Many went on to note that President Trump often refers to men with more personal names, for example, referring to Joe Biden as simply, “Joe.” And, as you might expect, progressives eager to be white knights showed up to defend her from the big, bad orange man. “AOC is not a nickname, they’re your initials. JFK is also not a nickname. The FBI, again, is not a nickname. You can maybe say that Trump should’ve still used your official title, but Obama was also referenced sans title, and you don’t see him whining about it on Twitter…” said Lauren Chen in a tweet. “As a fellow…

Biden Says He Never Called For End To Fracking During Debate, But He Did Back In 2019

Published

on

President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden went head-to-head in Thursday night’s final presidential debate on the topic of energy police and how their plans for reform might impact American workers. During the debate, held in Nashville, Tennessee, the president accused Biden of going all in on a radical leftist environmental agenda that would completely ban fracking and obliterate the oil industry. Via Fox News: During their debate in Nashville, Tenn., Trump accused Biden of embracing a radical environmental agenda that would ban fracking and destroy the oil industry. “He was against fracking,” Trump said. “He said it … until he got the nomination, went to Pennsylvania, then he said — but you know what Pennsylvania, he’ll be against it very soon because his party is totally against it.” “Fracking on federal land, I said, no fracking and/or oil on federal land,” Biden shot back. The problem here is that fracking provides hundreds of thousands of jobs in this country. To seek to ban it and get rid of it would put all of these fine people out of work and do massive damage to the economy. Way back in 2019, Biden was asked during a Democratic primary debate if there would be “any place for fossil fuels, including coal and fracking, in a Biden administration?” “No, we would — we would work it out. We would make sure it’s eliminated and no more subsidies for either one of those, either — any fossil fuel,” the former vice president replied. During the debate on Thursday, the president pressed hard on Biden to answer if he would shut down the oil industry. “I would transition from the oil industry, yes,” Biden said. Biden has also come out in favor of the Green New Deal. This piece of socialistic garbage…
