Tapper Debunks NYTimes Russia Collusion Narrative-Setter

Today’s Campaign Update, Part III (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Well, you don’t see this very often – the two fakest corrupt news outlets in America fighting over a narrative. It’s going to drive their Democrat masters crazy.

Not even 24 hours after the New York Times puts out a despicably fake piece trying to revive the whole Russia Collusion narrative, CNN’s Fake Jake Tapper, of all people, issues a thread on Twitter debunking the whole thing. Here is the text of Tapper’s tweets:

A national security official I know and trust pushes back on the way the briefing/ODNI story is being told, and others with firsthand knowledge agree with his assessment.

2/ “What’s been articulated in the news is that the intelligence community has concluded that the Russians are trying to help Trump again. But the intelligence doesn’t say that,” the official says…

3/ “The problem is Shelby” — Pierson, the elections threats executive in the intelligence community — “said they developed a preference for Trump. A more reasonable interpretation of the intelligence is not that they have a preference, it’s a step short of that….

4/ “It’s more that they understand the president is someone they can work with, he’s a dealmaker. But not that they prefer him over Sanders or Buttigieg or anyone else. So it may have been mischaracterized by Shelby” at the House Intel briefing last week…

5/ “And by the way,” the official says, “both Democrats and Republicans were challenging this at the briefing.” Then there’s the matter of the tense meeting between President Trump and erstwhile Acting Director of National Intelligence Admiral Maguire…

6/ “The President was upset that he had to hear about an intelligence conclusion from a Member of the House Republicans rather than from the intelligence community. So he was out of joint with Maguire on that process.”

7/ None of this disputes that Trump desires to replace those who have Intel expertise with partisan loyalists, or dismisses the larger issues and concerns about Russia and how the president seeks help from abroad. Just that there seems to be more to this particular story.

8/ ALSO none of this disputes that the Russians (and others) are attempting to interfere in the US election again.

Tapper, obviously disappointed to be getting this narrative-debunking information from his apparently legitimate source, naturally feels the need to add those last two tweets to try to keep the fantasy alive, at least to some extent. But it is obvious that what we really have here is a case where the New York Times intentionally and with malice aforethought mis-portrayed what was actually conveyed in this briefing in order to try to damage President Trump’s reputation.

Libel, plain and simple.


That is all.

Well of course the leftis are returning to their “older than dirt” story about Russian helping Trump win. Quite frankly, he doesn’t need any help. They are such desperate idiots!


Russia/USSR has always been trying to “help” the Democrats win. FDR didn’t call Stalin “Uncle Joe” for no reason. Anyway, the all the “Top Tier” candidates are also “Older than Dirt” and are actually old enough to remember Stalin. He probably had a big influence on at least Bernie, just like the commie Frank Marshal Davis had on the “One” – another closet Commie.

Weren’t the Democrats the ones always decrying the role of big money buying elections?

O/T: another outrageous miscarriage of justice and candidate for a Trump pardon:


Some folks on the Left are trying to justify this as a ‘repeat offender’ result because the guy had two previous felonies. Maybe the judge’s discretion was restricted by mandatory sentencing laws in Iowa, but it is still unjust.


NYTimes is a Russian State owned Propaganda machine… Execute the owners.


So Russia wants Trump over the Commie Dems running in 2020,too funny

Tapper–the preeminent media weasel– has long played this ‘both sides of the street’ game, to pretend he is straight down the middle while also placating his liberal paymasters.

The idea that DNI must have an IC background is a joke; John Negroponte–the first DNI in the Bush administration–did not, nor did Dan Coates as far as I am aware. Clapper did, but given what a disaster he was it actually argues against IC experience. It’s just another Deep State talking point.

Most of the time, Clapper seemed to be kept in a back room, perhaps to play Nintendo and look at naughty pictures? He seemed oddly out of step, out of touch, and out of his mind. We survived Clapper, in spite of Clapper.

I think you are correct. Clapper was an empty suit and useful scapegoat, while Comey and Brennan were running their IC ops.


Maybe Tapper has a new gig and doesn’t want to be in the “news” business anymore…?

Sooner or later some of these corporate news mouthpieces may actually develop a conscience and leave the reservation?

I’ll believe it when I see it, just like I’ll believe it when I see the DOJ cleaned up and the rule of law actually followed.

Until then, caveat emptor.
