Here’s What The Media Is Ignoring While Blaming Russia For Hillary Losing

According to a “secret CIA assessment,” Russia intervened in the U.S. election to undermine confidence in the electoral system and boost support for Donald Trump. The president-elect has already rejected this notion, though the implications of claims regarding Russian involvement are still unclear.

Once again, this kind of pro-Clinton/anti-Russian-based narrative has already been completely debunked. For example, in his recent article, “Anonymous Leaks to the WashPost About the CIA’s Russia Beliefs Are No Substitute for Evidence,” Glenn Greenwald brilliantly explains why this story does not merit our attention. He astutely notes:

“There is still no such evidence for any of these claims. What we have instead are assertions, disseminated by anonymous people, completely unaccompanied by any evidence, let alone proof. As a result, none of the purported evidence — still — can be publicly seen, reviewed, or discussed. Anonymous claims leaked to newspapers about what the CIA believes do not constitute proof, and certainly do not constitute reliable evidence that substitutes for actual evidence that can be reviewed.”

Until such evidence is produced, rather than wasting time speculating on the extent of Russia’s involvement in the U.S. elections, we could instead turn to the real issue at play here.

The CIA, an entity that has interfered in sovereign governments across the geopolitical chessboard for decades, has accused another country of doing exactly what the agency does best without offering any physical evidence for their claims.

Let’s say Russia did intervene in the U.S. elections; it would be the most fitting example of “chickens coming home to roost.”

No entity should ever interfere in any sovereign elections, but clearly, if one is going to accuse others of doing so and cry wolf when they feel aggrieved, perhaps they should take a step back to reconsider what they have done to the rest of the world countless times. As even the Washington Post — an establishment mouthpiece — points out, the United States has a long history of interfering in other countries’ elections.

According to Foreign Policy, the U.S. has gone beyond interfering with elections — it has overthrown seven governments since World War II.

The most strikingly obvious example, which the CIA has admitted to, was when the U.S. and U.K. instigated a coup to overthrow the democratically elected leader of Iran, Mohammad Mosaddegh, over oil.

As the Guardian has explained:

“Britain, and in particular Sir Anthony Eden, the foreign secretary, regarded Mosaddeq as a serious threat to its strategic and economic interests after the Iranian leader nationalised the British Anglo-Iranian Oil Company, latterly known as BP. But the UK needed US support. The Eisenhower administration in Washington was easily persuaded.”

The American puppet the CIA installed, Shah Reza Pahlavi, was an appalling dictator with a poor human rights record whose reign incited the country’s 1979 revolution.

The other countries on Foreign Policy’s list include Guatemala (1954), Congo (1960), Dominican Republic (1961), South Vietnam (1963), Brazil (1964), and Chile (1973).

However, as Anti-War has noted, Foreign Policy’s list of countries constitutes a “significant undercount”:

“J. Dana Stuster, who posted this map, does specify that these are covert CIA-supported coups only and mentions it doesn’t include ‘a number of U.S. military interventions against hostile regimes and U.S.-supported insurgencies and failed assassination attempts, including a plan to kill Fidel Castro with an exploding cigar….’”

“But if you go by Stephen Kinzer’s book Overthrow: America’s Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq, this map leaves out quite a bit of history. In addition to Iran, Guatemala, Congo, Dominican Republic, South Vietnam, Brazil, and Chile, the U.S. also had a hand overthrowing the governments of Hawaii in 1893, Cuba in 1898, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Nicaragua, Honduras, Panama, Grenada, Afghanistan, and of course Iraq.”

According to the New York Times, the CIA also supported Saddam Hussein’s rise to power in Iraq because they viewed his competitor, Abdel Karim Kassem, to be a “grave threat.” We all know how this story ended.

Recent events across the Middle East and Europe have been no different. The U.S. State Department was caught red-handed helping neo-Nazis in Ukraine topple the democratically elected president, Viktor Yanukovych, to install an American puppet. The president who took office following Yanukovych’s abdication was Petro Poroshenko, a former mole for the U.S. State Department. The U.S. referred to him previously as “our Ukrainian insider.”

And then there’s Syria.

In an article originally written for Alternet, Salon published a list of 35 countries where the U.S. has supported “fascists, drug lords and terrorists.” American allies France, Greece, Israel, and Turkey, to name a few, all make the list.

An often overlooked part of history is that the terror network al-Qaeda is a CIA construct. As Anti-Media previously reported:

“As such, through a CIA program called Operation Cyclone, United States taxpayers sent about $20 to $30 million per year to the mujahideen in 1980, a figure that had risen to $630 million per year by 1987 under President Reagan. Due to his key role as the main pro-mujahideen force in Congress, Wilson worked closely with Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, a leader of the rebel group who later worked closely with Osama bin Laden through the Hezb-e Islami militant group, which was formed at the time to fight Soviet forces with the help of the U.S. government’s aid.

“Osama bin Laden, the son of a billionaire construction magnate connected to the Saudi royal family, also funneled money from his own family’s business to support the anti-Soviet cause in Afghanistan.

“As bin Laden went on to create al-Qaeda in 1988 after receiving training from the U.S.-backed Pakistani Armed Forces and the Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), the United States provided the group with money and weapons. As Osama bin Laden went on to plan and carry out the 9/11 attacks, becoming one of the biggest targets of the Barack Obama administration, the ‘Butcher of Kabul‘ as Hekmatyar is known, was officially pardoned by the Afghan government — an entity currently supported by the U.S. government.”

Apparently, America reserves the right to topple governments and help establish regimes they support all across the globe. If Russia really is able to interfere with America’s so-called democracy, then perhaps the CIA is experiencing firsthand what they have been doing to countless governments for decades — and perhaps America’s seemingly omnipotent power is waning if it can be undermined by a foreign power.

As it stands, however, the only evidence we have of anyone interfering with any election or government implicates the U.S. — not Russia.

But don’t let facts get in the way of a good story.

    Wrong… America has been `bought` and now used by Elitist NWO psychopaths to propagate an horrific, evil war on humanity under the flag of the US.

      Trump can change all this, but only if he wears full body armor 24/7

      • g.johnon

        ginger, judging by the donald’s cabinet appointments so far and his reluctance to prosecute hilary, i have a feeling you are going to want him dead within a year.
        of the donald, by the donald, and for the donald. period.
        not even in office yet and he has already managed to renege on every campaign promise that got him elected.
        sorry, but it looks like we the people are still on our own.

        • rickd12

          Very true. The last real president you guys had was Kennedy and we know what happened when he stood up to these evil bastards

          • g.johnon

            you got that right rick, same thing that happened to lincoln when he tried to replace the federal reserve note with authentic government printed american greenbacks and why jackson escaped death when two pistols that were jammed into his gut, failed to fire when the triggers were pulled when he declared war on the banking cartels that were setting up the federal reserve.
            our entire world is being run at the pleasure of the most vile and venal liars, murderers and thieves the world has yet known. if we stay on this track we will virtually lose everything including any chance for our children to enjoy a dignified future. all because we the people of the home of the brave remain in fear of subhuman filth.

          • rickd12

            They’ve done a good job. We are more divided than ever, only united do we stand a chance of fighting back. Black-white, gay-straight none of that matters when the fight is the fight against enslavement

          • TrevorD

            Agree totally. Wise words indeed

      • TrevorD

        Hope you are right but its not looking too good. However maybe there are things going behind the scenes that we dont know about yet. Time will tell.

        • ahuxley

          Wishful thinking.
          It happens after every presidential election.

  • RightofAttila

    This is Harry Reid’s Romney didn’t pay his taxes on steroids.

  • SP_88

    There is zero evidence to support the claim that Russia has interfered with our election process in any way whatsoever. If there was, we would have seen it by now.
    Hillary has been blaming everyone for her loss of the election, and blaming the Russians is just the latest excuse for why she didn’t win. It’s also a distraction from the embarrassing results of the vote recount that shows that Trump actually got more votes, and uncovered voter fraud in favor of Hillary in many districts. It’s not unlike the distraction from the actual content of the Wikileaks documents that shows how corrupt Hillary Clinton is and how unfit to be president she is.
    I’m sure that it won’t be long before some other nonsense becomes front page news, probably to distract us from the embarrassing results of finding out that the Russians had absolutely nothing to do with our election.
    And once that runs it’s course, another distraction will come out. And around and around we go.

    OBL didn’t do 9/11 — he was too sick. He died in December 2001, and all the subsequent videos of him were done by an imposter. Do a search for Osama December 2001 and you’ll find the death stories from countless news sources. The media ‘kept him alive’ all those years so that we had a bogey man to chase. Talk about fake news!!!

    • Jas

      Several different imposters, and photo shopped death photos.

  • Joe Joe
  • Sean Meehan

    So, the American people have no right to object to behavior on the part of foreign governments that we never approved of when our government behaved that way?

    If Trump’s such a stand up guy, just let them carry out the charade of an investigation and discovery, it’s not like he shouldn’t welcome some distraction from his epic failure to demonstrate competence during the transition.

    • g.johnon

      sean, the fbi investigated, found no evidence. cia “investigated” refused to reveal their “evidence”, in the end admitted that they based their accusations on a preponderance of circumstantial bullshit that they could not even present cogently.
      do try to keep up….k?
