Russian Collusion Investigation or Deep State Disinformation Campaign

With chants of Rudy! Rudy! as Giuliani joins the Trump defense team vowing to end this thing in a week or two and along with indications Mueller’s probe is unraveling at the seams as key players were referred for criminal investigation, I’d suggest everyone take a deep breath. Now let it out slowly and remember, according to Yogi Berra, “it ain’t over ‘til it’s over.” Communists never go quietly or easily. If they did, Havana would be bustling tourist hot spot and the sports cars on the streets wouldn’t be 55 Chevys. As Coach used to warn, keep your eye on the ball don’t be fooled by the head fake.

In March 2017, after reading about it in Disinformation: Former Spy Chief Reveals Secret Strategies for Undermining Freedom, Attacking Religion, and Promoting Terrorism Soviet defector and former spy chief Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa I wrote about Russian disinformation operations. Watching the Russian collusion tale unfold through the media and investigation leaks, I concluded maybe that’s what is happening with the Trump Russian collusion investigation.

“Simplistically and in a nutshell, according to the General, dezinformatsiya built a false history (a past) then leaked information to spur the media into a feeding frenzy in order characterize a perception of the target. Boy, does that not seem too familiar? Then just at the appropriate time the “real” bombshell proof finally emerges verifying what most people have been conditioned to believe. It is more complex than that involving many real players and dupes, but that is the general picture. We are seeing something very similar every day, from our media, “Intelligence Sources”, and politicians.” – Communists, Russians and Collusion – March 2017

Let’s see how well the collusion saga fits the pattern.

Build a false history:

It is well established through multiple sources the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) through the law firm Perkins Coie paid Fusion GPS to conduct opposition research on presidential candidate Trump. Fusion GPS in turn hired former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele. Steele had established ties with the FBI and the U.S. Intelligence community.

The now infamous and yet unverified Steele Dossier was supposedly prepared using information provided by Russian sources from inside the Kremlin.

“Specifically, the idea is to fabricate a new past for enemy targets in order to change how the world perceives them.” Disinformation

Although Fusion GPS at the behest of the Clinton campaign and the DNC contracted Steele for opposition research on candidate Trump, the dossier found its way into the hands of Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director John Brennan, Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper, National Security Agency (NSA) Director Admiral Mike Rogers, Senator John McCain and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey. Who knows how many others got it.

It’s actually crafty, yet very basic. President Trump’s well-known persona is that of a brash billionaire international real estate mogul and playboy. Building on this perceived personality – a kernel of truth- the salacious and unverified false history was crafted.

Spur the media into a feeding frenzy:

“The truth is, The Western media are quite easily manipulated, for they often craft their stories from press releases and tend, on the whole, to be indiscriminate about the nature and reliability of their sources.” Disinformation

According to information in the recently released Comey Memos, the classified briefing given to Trump in 2017 provided the news hook CNN and others needed to begin reporting the story.

“The classified briefings last week were presented by four of the senior-most US intelligence chiefs — Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, FBI Director James Comey, CIA Director John Brennan, and NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers.” CNN January 12, 2017

“According to a House Intelligence Committee report, Clapper leaked that Trump had been briefed by senior officials on the contents of the dossier and in effect, the briefing, “gave the dossier legs and news agencies began to publish its contents because it had now become official news” Sarah A. Carter

For more than a year later the story has dominated the liberal legacy news media. For some media outlets, it consumes their programming. As the adage proclaims, a lie can travel half way around the world before the truth can get its pants on. This lie has actually lapped the world a few times and the truth that may someday set us free is buried beneath Washington and legacy media noise. When we need him, where is Detective Joe Friday?

Follow the path to the real bombshell evidence:

Before a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, fired FBI Director Comey admitted:

“I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter,” Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday. “I didn’t do it myself for a variety of reasons but I asked him to because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel.” The Hill

Joe knows the deal:

“We could’ve piled up a hundred years of great policemen and great detectives: men with honor and brains and guts. You tore down every best part of them. The people who read it in the papers, they’re gonna overlook the fact that WE got you; that we washed our own laundry and we cleared this thing up. They’re gonna overlook all the good. They’ll overlook every last good cop in the country. But they’ll remember YOU. Because you’re a bad cop.” – Joe Friday

Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed within a couple of days of the leaked Comey memo. It seems, at least to my cynical view, that it was just another piece of a well laid disinformation operation. Mueller and his politically biased team fed by the politically biased inside the FBI, our intelligence agencies, and the Department of Justice embarked on an investigation in search of a crime. All though there are indictments, there is nothing related to the Trump campaign or to the President himself. There is certainly no evidence of Russian collusion.

Enter Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen. Cohen has worked years for Trump including his business dealings with Russia. So, the Mueller inspired FBI raid on Cohen’s home and offices, vacuumed up everything including records and computers much of it most likely protected by attorney-client privilege. Contained in those records or on those computers and cell phones are undoubtedly business dealings in Russia with Cohen representing Trump’s interests.

I’m just a country boy. Generally, I do not delve too deeply into conspiracy theories. However, when I see a clearly defined pattern and follow it to a logical end I am prone to try and figure out what that end might be. This is especially so when logically following the pattern leads me to a specific but not otherwise explainable point.

Ever since the DNC servers were hacked, we’ve been hearing how it was the Russians and how devious the Russians are. That is just underpinning for the larger operation. The FBI was not allowed to examine the DNC’s servers (or maybe they were, who knows), so we have to take the word of the DNC – the people who launched the whole shebang with the Steele dossier – that the Russians did it. How much of a challenge would it be for these so-called superstar Russian hackers to bury that last piece of “bombshell” evidence onto one of Cohen’s computers. To accept that, we must accept the premise the Russians were ever involved in the first place. I do not. At least not to the extent claimed.

A more likely scenario has our own intelligence agency deep staters, who are working tirelessly to take down a President, planting the bombshell and waiting for the right time to steer someone toward it. If there exists such evidence, it’s been sitting there for a while. A disinformation campaign starts with the end in mind. The evidence will verify what Americans have been conditioned to believe by the media’s yearlong misinformation campaign– that Trump colluded with the Russians. If there, it will be an ah ha discovery but not by the Special Counsel. As they scour Cohen’s records, it will be stumbled upon by the Southern District of New York Attorney General providing cover for the deep state. Over at CNN they may be hyperventilating.

Very clean is it not? I know that sounds too conspiratorial for most to accept, but one must accept that it all follows the pattern of a disinformation operation right up to Mr. Cohen’s doorstep. The Russians did not corner the market on disinformation. We’re pretty good at it too. The fat lady ain’t singing yet and until she does let’s not feel too good about it.

It certainly appears that briefing the unverified dossier to the President and then leaking it to the media was part of a plan to undermine an incoming President. It was a “news hook” that led to more than a years worth of stories that accused the President of alleged collusion with Russia and aided the Kremlin in what appears to be one of the greatest disinformation campaigns to sow chaos in the United States, according to numerous former and current U.S. intelligence officials.   Sara A.
