Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Old New York Times Slogan: All the news that’s fit to print.
New New York Times Slogan: All the leaks that support the Deep State Narrative.
This has become so laughably predictable that you can’t even take it seriously anymore. Thursday afternoon, the news fakers at the New York Times published a piece – of course based solely on leaks from some deep state Obama holdover within the FBI – that basically admits that the FBI was doing what William Barr keeps telling us it was doing back in 2016, which was: SPYING on the Trump Campaign, and attempting to entrap its people into the commission of some sort of crime.
That’s what it was. It was a counterintelligence operation run out of the FBI, an operation that had been referred to the FBI and authorized by then-CIA Director John Brennan. Furthermore, it was a counterintelligence operation run by the FBI, and about which then-President of the United States Barack Obama was fully aware, since he was given weekly briefings about all counterintelligence operations run by the FBI.
The New York Times just now seems to be catching up on all of this stuff that we’ve all known about for well over a year now. Funny how that works.
Of course, the reason why this particular fake newspaper is publishing this particular story at this particular time is so that it can put its particular spin on it at the behest of the Obama-leftover skunks and snakes who still infest the FBI and DOJ. The reason why this particular story – about the FBI illegally spying on the presidential campaign of the opposition party and trying to entrap its people on foreign soil – at this particular time is because everyone now knows that a) it has become one of the issues DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is investigating, and b) the Attorney General himself has let it be known that he also has U.S. attorney staff looking into it.
In other words, the Deep State and its mouth organs in the fake news media, led by the New York Times, are panicking and desperately trying to set and sanitize the public narrative in advance of those investigations. The Times, of course, is very careful not to call the FBI’s activities “spying”, portraying the spying operation as one that “shows the level of alarm inside the F.B.I. during a frantic period when the bureau was trying to determine the scope of Russia’s attempts to disrupt the 2016 election”.
Rrrrrriiiiiigggghhhhht. If the FBI were indeed so “alarmed” about efforts by those nasty ol’ Russians to make contacts with members of the Trump campaign, why didn’t the FBI make an appointment to meet with the candidate himself, along with his senior staff, and warn them about those concerns? This simple action that would have given these U.S. citizens a head’s up was apparently beyond the ken of these intrepid law enforcement heroes; thus, they took Brennan’s advice and mounted a highly complex, secret operation that was clearly designed to entrap unsuspecting members of Trump’s team, like George Papadopoulous, who is the subject of this particular Times cover job for the Deep State.
The particular entrapment op in question on this particular Times piece is an episode in which longtime CIA operative Stefan Halper deployed a honey pot code named (I kid you not) Azra Turk to see if she could get Papadopolous to make any incriminating admissions over drinks at a London bar.
Here’s the narrative the Times/FBI skunks put on this story:
The woman had set up the meeting to discuss foreign policy issues. But she was actually a government investigator posing as a research assistant, according to people familiar with the operation. The F.B.I. sent her to London as part of the counterintelligence inquiry opened that summer to better understand the Trump campaign’s links to Russia.
The American government’s affiliation with the woman, who said her name was Azra Turk, is one previously unreported detail of an operation that has become a political flash point in the face of accusations by President Trump and his allies that American law enforcement and intelligence officials spied on his campaign to undermine his electoral chances. Last year, he called it “Spygate.”
So, this CIA operative working for another CIA operative trying to entrap a U.S. citizen on foreign soil is portrayed as a “government investigator posing as a research assistant.” And don’t you love the spin the writers put on the spying operation, that it “has become a political flash point in the face of accusations by President Trump” that he was – guess what? – being SPIED on. And yes, he did call it “Spygate” – because he was being SPIED on.
My goodness. How do these people sleep at night, knowing that they are nothing mouthpieces for the worst elements of our society?
That is all.
