The Russian Collusion Story:
The Acme of Fake News

American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:real fifi, 7/16/2017 6:49:07 AM

Richard Fernandez is one of the most brilliant authors on the Internet. This week he wrote: Conventional wisdom posits the chief challenges facing the post-Cold War World are Global Warming and the decline of international institutions. But maybe that assurance is a species of Fake News. Suppose the most pressing problems in the next decade is finding new energy supplies to 1) keep the price of oil low enough to contain Russia (and Islamism); and 2) adapting to a disruptive information revolution no one can seem to control. Who will hand you that unconventional wisdom unless you come to it

Comments:
Russia´s broke. It needs to keep the price of oil and gas up to survive. Why would it collude with the candidate most likely to up U.S. energy production?

OP´s point - and sooo many others here over these many months - all make the logical point, that is that Putin/Russia, acting in their best interests, would overwhelmingly support/collude/do everything possible to insure Hillary´s election and not Trump´s.

The most obvious, most demonstrable, and most corrupt case of collusion during Election 2016 was between the DNC and the MSM, not to mention Comey and Lynch. Multiple charges of election fraud could easily be filed against these charlatans. Perhaps, desperately trying to deflect attention away from their own crimes (obvious and provable in a court of law) is what the "Russian collusion" nonsense is ultimately really all about.

The Democrats and their enemedia are desperately trying to remind all of us 24x7 that our constitution says the President can be impeached for "high crimes and collusions"...oh wait, it doesn´t say that. Never mind.

The Russians, as Clarice reminds us, do indeed have "their sophisticated information and disinformation operations". But they´re amateurs compared to the Democrats and their enemedia.

As in most scandals.. the real crime is being ignored or covered up by those more interesting to the LOFO´s. The MSM is great at doing this obfuscation.

One thing that I do know.. Trump Jr., while I can certainly understand he desire to clear his actions, should NEVER go before any committee under oath about this!! There is no reason for it. There are no facts that can´t be twisted and then catch him in a lie. (Remember Scooter Libby)? !

If you notice, the Dems who have been caught red handed never testify under oath. And they have all withstood with no consequence.

I tell you, this will not end well for Trump if they get him under oath. These people are despicable and care about only one thing, and that is bringing this administration down, anyway possible!

History could be repeating itself.

Russia, as the USSR of the 80s, can´t keep up with increased US military spending without going broke.

And this time, the Islamic radicals who feed off the largess of the Arab oil shieks and Iran as well as the oil they can steal and sell on the black market, are running out of money at $45-$50 barrel oil vs $120 barrel oil a few years back.

Trump may be able to take a page out of Reagan´s playbook and run that winning play again.

Clarice’s main point is about Fake News and how we should deal with it:

As I further explain, the non-stop media promotion of some nefarious scheme between Russia and Trump does not pass even the most cursory forensic examination, proving once again in the age of fake news, you cannot remain a passive consumer of news. You have to bring to each story the good sense and diligence with which you handle your most important personal affairs.

Repeat: “You have to bring to each story the good sense and diligence with which you handle your most important personal affairs.”

Even LDotters need to remember this. I see too many panicking over Fake News. A healthy skepticism is a good thing. Verify before trusting.

All of the Russia stuff happened BEFORE, well before the election when Trump was expected to lose by EVERYONE in the media, GOP, Democrats, entertainment, and education; literally everyone in those organizations. So ,why in the world was a dossier created to tie Trump to illegal and punishable activities, all based on false and made-up information (which every word of it is) when the next president was GOING to be Hillary? And why is the left (I include the GOP in the "left") holding on so tightly to absolute and proven beyond doubt, false information, they say is true? Why? What if Hillary had won? What would the left be doing NOW with all the false Russian ties? Do you think it would not be in the news? Do you think the left would have gone to all that trouble to create a false tie between Trump and Russia, then when Hillary won, just do nothing with the dossier, the Trump, Jr meeting, etc? I don´t. As ridiculous and stupid as the left is right now to anyone who can rub two brain cells together with their non-stop "Trump and Russia stole the election so Hillary should be president" banter, I think their original goal was to destroy Trump down to imprisonment and poverty right after Hillary won with what would have been the most secretive and most powerful oligarchy in history to send the message to anyone opposing the Deep State. I could be wrong, could be wearing a tinfoil hat, but I don´t thinks so because I´m an American thinker.

There is a reason (and perhaps the only reason) that the Russians would want Trump. Hillary and Obama were fouling the Russians battle against ISIS and Islamic radicalism. All of this unrest is close to Russian borders while for us it´s on the other side of the Earth. Plus I truly believe Obama wanted the radicals to win.

Now that it looks like ISIS is going down the Russians are free to be completely anti-Trump.

What´s most disgusting about the Russian narrative is that the MSM refuses to report that it was in the Russians´ best interests to see that Hillary! succeeded Obama, mainly because she would be singing from the Green hymnal and doing what she could to stop American fracking, which has led to crude oil prices one-third of what they were in 2008. Fracking has also nearly busted Russia, financially speaking. No military hostilities were necessary. Why are Democrats and the press helping our enemies? Speaking of the press, Clarice ends her essay with this poke:

FTA: I suppose we can’t expect much more of a press corps so stupid it mistakes the Star Spangled Banner for France’s La Marseillaise, and Bastille Day for the 100th Anniversary of the U.S. entry in WW I.

There´s no cure for stupidity, although there is a cure for treason involving rope or rifle.

Oh, Lord. I´m currently sitting in DFW airport waiting for a flight and it´s impossible to get away from CNN. It´s on television screens in every gate and they have it pumped out of speakers at every charging station. I´ve asked about turning the volume down but no one is able to do it.

I´ve never heard so much BS in my life. And not a peep about Illary´s collusion with Russia, the Ukraine, etc, etc, etc.

I may have to go sit in the ladies room until my flight is called. But they probably pipe it in there too.

#17 hit the nail on the head.

I don´t think that Russia affected the election. It´s pretty cheek of me to disagree with the likes of Fernande and Clarice, but I do think that they may have tried, and, as I´ve said all along, that they definitely wanted Trump and not the naive and oblivious Hillary.

Economies aside, what they both had their eye on most sharply was ISIS and the Muslim threat, and this is the main thing on which they did, and do, see eye to eye.

So yes - Russia would have tried to help Trump. Did the Trump campaign ´collude´? I doubt it, to any significant extent at any rate. And again -- I don´t think for one moment that Russia affected the result of the election.

The collusion lie has been repeated so long, and in so many different ways that the average man in the street would never be able to articulate it clearly. I know I can´t. The left only wants to rile up their base into believing Trump somehow stole the election and should be impeached. Wicked people, all of them.

Here is a factor indicating Trump´s friendliness toward Russia (NOT that there was or is anything wrong with that), and probably vice versa, that I never see mentioned: the Rohrabacher connection. Remember when he was under rather serious consideration for vice-president? Rohrabacher, one of my favorite reps by the way, has been famous for years for his strong encouragement of better relations with Russia among other things. And the Russians have been lobbying him forever regarding the Magnitsky Act, which according to Don Jr. turned out to be the main topic of the meeting along with adoptions, which is why he lost interest.

One of candidate Trump and President Trump´s main ideas was getting other countries to do more of what needs to be done--primarily, Putin in the Mideast and Putin was well aware of Trump´s desire to do business with the Russians for that reason.

Etc. Get it now? Probably not... sigh..

Clarice puts all the pieces together very nicely.

Yes, OP is correct. When I worked and traveled all over Russia for a decade from St. Petersburg to Vladovostok, I saw a country filled with abandoned and collapsing factories. I saw barges filled with raw logs floating in the Amur River waiting for Chinese and Japanese buyers to pick up the raw materials. The Russians didn´t even mill them to lumber.

I saw a Platinum Club in Khabarovsk, the biggest sign of economic growth in the east was the platinum miners and Siberian loggers. Farther west, the oil and gas fields were the biggest economic booms and still, all the factories were shuttered, stripped and collapsing. I worked with a few small companies trying to make it with plastic molding, using US funded machines in 20% of a crumbling old factory, and a rope maker creating a few dozen jobs until he was crushed by the police demands for too large a portion of his earnings.

Russia is desperate for outside funds and most of it comes from selling raw materials, and their few manufacturing ventures struggle with zero borrowing power and crippling government corruption in everything. The collapsing ruble is at about 60 rubles to the dollar. It was 23 to 38 rubles to the dollar when I worked there. So now all the factory made things they import have doubled in price. So they need twice the outside revenue, while oil prices fall.

So in addition to all of this, we also need to ask why, when the Obamboozler and his minions were spying on the Donald Trump and the campaign, did they all of a sudden start screaming "Russian Collusion" 24 hours after Hillary lost! Where was the "October Surprise" that results from a surveillance operation like that?
The only answer that makes any sense is:
Because it never happened in the first place!

Sorry for the typo in my post#27, should be "23 to 28 rubles", to the dollar.

Russia is a place of extreme contrasts. I saw farmers pitch hay with three pronged wooden hay forks onto a haystack, and just down the road a round baler was spitting out giant round bales.

And in another city, I found a small Russian research company with a working prototype of a scanning OCT medical tissue scanner, fitted into a 3 mm diameter probe. It could be used inside the body to study tissues with OCT, capable of micrometer-scale three dimensional imaging, useful for identifying tissues as normal or abnormal. Yet, they couldn´t find any funding, it looked like their brilliant work was going nowhere.

I worked with some of the very best Russian scientists and engineers, managing technology projects, but ultimately most failed to thrive due to inability to get a bank loan and crushing official corruption in everything from the patent office to the police station and local mayor´s office. In the end, there are many brilliant people trapped in a hellish nightmare of corruption.

One small bright spot was that Christianity is finding new strength, and starting to regrow after a century of official repression. It seems their only hope to bring ethics back. A friend who proselytizes found amazing levels of interest in Christianity among older people, never really exposed to it. There was a hunger there for it.
Mixed feelings about Russia. I met many good people, yet the rampant corruption, and their apparent yearning for authoritarian rule is amazing. They have serious cultural problems, not easily solved in a few years.

This American learned that "all people are the same" is a fundamental untruth. Americans are very different, more than most Americans know or can even process easily.

After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently.

His pre-dawn raid was meant to intimidate Manafort, not just to collect evidence. Robert Mueller’s sprawling special-counsel investigation is playing hardball. It was not enough to get a search warrant to ransack the Virginia home of Paul Manafort, even as the former Trump campaign chairman was cooperating with congressional investigators. Mueller’s bad-asses persuaded a judge to give them permission to pick the door lock. That way, they could break into the premises in the wee hours, while Manafort and his wife were in bed sleeping. They proceeded to secure the premises — of a man they are reportedly investigating for tax and financial crimes, not gang murders and Mafia hits — by drawing their guns on the stunned couple, apparently to check their pajamas for weapons. Mueller’s probe more resembles an empire, with 17 prosecutors retained on the public dime. So . . .
