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.

Pelosi, Capitol Police Now Bickering Over ‘Orders’ to ‘Arrest’ the Mask-less

This is getting embarrassing for Nancy…

Thankfully, the latest COVID-19 stunt by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi only took a few hours to unravel this time around. Pelosi, who has been pushing the GOP’s buttons on mask mandates for months now, used the CDC’s recent guidance adjustment to bring the facial coverings back to the House floor.  This prompted protests from a great many Republicans, and Pelosi subsequently threatened to have the Capitol Police start arresting folks who wouldn’t comply. The Capitol Police were not exactly on board with that idea. https://twitter.com/CapitolPolice/status/1420810728387264517?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1420810728387264517%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Fcapitol-police-ordered-arrest-staff-visitors-not-wearing-masks A response from the speaker followed. Pelosi’s office said she did not order police to begin arresting people because it’s not within her power. “The speaker of the House does not control the U.S. Capitol Police,” Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill told Fox News.  “We were unaware of the memo until it was reported in the press.” The embarrassing incident comes amid a flurry of criticisms of Pelosi’s handling of the Congressional mask policy, and likely marks yet another milestone in the decline of Nancy Pelosi’s speakership.

Capitol Police Ordered to Arrest Those Who Refuse Mask Mandate

Is Pelosi exploiting the Capitol Police to antagonize the GOP?

The COVID-19 pandemic has once again become a major piece of the American political landscape in 2021, as a new variant of the once-waning virus now threatens to set back herd immunity by several months or more. And while this is certainly not good news, there are still concerns that the Democratic Party is still taking this whole thing a bit too seriously, possibly in an attempt to virtue-signal their way into the hearts of young liberals everywhere. Their latest militant maneuver is being slathered in criticism, however. U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) were ordered to start arresting visitors and staff who refuse to wear a mask on the House side of the Capitol complex starting Thursday, according to a police memo issued by new USCP Chief Thomas Manger that was obtained by a member of Congress. Police were also advised not to arrest members of Congress for failing to wear masks but to report the lawmakers’ noncompliance to the House sergeant-at-arms, the memo says. It didn’t take long for a backlash to erupt. Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., got a copy of the memo distributed at Thursday’s morning roll call from an unnamed police officer, she told Fox News. Police she’s spoken to are “very uncomfortable” with this new directive that Cammack describes as “tyrannical.” “This is such an overstep of Speaker Pelosi’s authority to basically make our Capitol Police arrest staff members and report on members [of Congress],” Cammack told Fox News Thursday. “It’s absolutely unconscionable that this is where we’re at.” The move comes just a day after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s comments on possible mask requirements prompted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to call him a “moron”.
