‘Russian Interference’: the politically un-dead, via Kamala Harris & other dubious actors, in The Financial Times. American Skeptic scoffs!

In the watershed of the complete collapse of The Mueller Report & Schiff’s well rehearsed Mini-Series, that produced Stars Vindman and Fiona Hill – while the political longevity of this melodrama was non-existent. The release of the original testimony secured that well deserved fate!
‘Russian Interference’ is now the lingua franca of the Anti-Trumpers, in this case Joe Biden’s ‘Richard Nixon’, Kamala Harris.

Democratic vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris warned Russian election interference could hand US President Donald Trump another four years in the White House.

In an interview with CNN’s State of the Union, Ms Harris said she believed Moscow would attempt to interfere in the 2020 presidential election in the same way that US intelligence agencies say it did in 2016.

“I am clear that Russia interfered in the election of president of the United States in 2016. I serve on the Senate Intelligence Committee,” Ms Harris told CNN.

“We have published detailed reports about exactly what we believe happened. And I do believe that there will be foreign interference in the 2020 election, and that Russia will be at the front of the line.”

Pressed to answer if Russian interference could cause the Democratic ticket to lose the election, Ms Harris responded: “Theoretically, of course, yes.”

The ‘as if’ here is that America’s record on internal interference in the politics of other nations is ? America ‘sanctions’ , or just invades, and occupies, those nations who would resist its hegemonic ambition. And  enlists its coterie of well financed NGO’s, to heighten their internal subversion.

Headline: Ray McGovern: Catapulting Russian-Meddling Propaganda

Sub-headline: The New York Times is leading the full-court press to improve on what it regards as Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s weak-kneed effort to blame the Russians for giving us Donald Trump. 

The fresh orgy of anti-Russian invective in the lickspittle media (LSM) has the feel of fin de siècle. The last four reality-impaired years do seem as though they add up to a century. And no definitive fin is in sight, as long as most people don’t know what’s going on.

The LSM should be confronted: “At long last have you left no sense of decency?” But who would hear the question — much less any answer? The corporate media have a lock on what Americans are permitted or not permitted to hear. Checking the truth, once routine in journalism, is a thing of the past.

Thus the reckless abandon with which The New York Times is leading the current full-court press to improve on what it regards as Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s weak-kneed effort to blame the Russians for giving us Donald Trump. The press is on, and there are no referees to call the fouls.

The recent release of a 1,000-page, sans bombshells and already out-of-date report by the Senate Intelligence Committee has provided the occasion to “catapult the propaganda,” as President George W. Bush once put it.

The Financial Times not just content with Harris’ hysterical Anti-Russian diatribe, has published this political stenography: 

Headline: Russian troll farm makes US comeback

Sub-headline: Internet Research Agency said to be behind leftwing website was also active during 2016 election

After the FBI tipped off Facebook that the obscure leftwing website Peace Data was a clandestine front for Russia this week, the site’s anonymous administrators responded the only way a troll knows how: by brazenly posting through the scandal.

“We’re assured that Peace Data became a victim of a collaborated provocative effort from Facebook and FBI who want to shut up independent leftwing voices prior to the presidential elections and to disguise it with the fight against made up Russian threat,” the trolls wrote in a lengthy post riddled with grammatical mistakes and clunky Russian syntax.

Researchers say Peace Data, a small group of about a dozen accounts that hired unwitting American freelancers, is the first known attempt this year by people linked to the Internet Research Agency, the infamous St Petersburg troll farm, to meddle in the 2020 US election.

  The US says the IRA is funded by Evgeny Prigozhin, a caterer-turned-warlord known as “Putin’s chef”, and indicted 13 of its employees for their attempts to interfere in the 2016 election.

The Left-Wing is the perennial bad actor, and or ‘dupes’, dating back, at least, since the Republican Party deemed ‘The New Deal’, ‘A Generation of Treason‘ in the late 1940’s. The New Democrats have embraced a political variant of that strategy, based on the failed, but potent propaganda residual, from Media’s morning till night coverage, of  The Mueller and Schiff manufactured political crises.

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
