Two weeks ago, we learned it was CIA itself — not just 51 “former intelligence officials” — which engineered the lie that the Biden laptop was “Russian disinformation.”
This means we know for sure the US Security State directly manipulated 2 consecutive national elections.
There was indeed illegal and corrupt interference in the 2016 and 2020 elections.
But it didn’t come from Trump/Russia collusion. It came from the US Security State.
And it's so telling that the self-anointed "defenders of democracy" cheer rather than condemn this despotism.
And the willingness of the media to flagrantly re-write history in the most Orwellian way possible is stunning.
For decades, John Durham was heralded as one of the nation's most apolitical federal prosecutors. See NYT, 2009. Now, he's a right-wing hack:
There's a reason why the CIA, FBI and DHS are so wildly popular among Democrats/liberals, why their media outlets and leaders rarely criticize them.
It's because they perceive – correctly – that the US Security State is one of their most important and potent political weapons.
