‘CNN’s narrative is simply false’
Monday night saw CNN attempt to propagate a new conspiracy theory regarding President Trump and Russia. However, it fell flat on its face when the CIA chimed in to point out that it was, once again, total bullshit.
The network quoted the infamous ‘anonymous source’, who claimed that the US extracted a top spy out of Russia in 2017 because it was worried about Trump’s carelessness with handling intelligence, fearing it could lead to exposure.

In a previously undisclosed secret mission in 2017, the United States successfully extracted from Russia one of its highest-level covert sources inside the Russian government, multiple Trump administration officials with direct knowledge told CNN.
A person directly involved in the discussions said that the removal of the Russian was driven, in part, by concerns that President Donald Trump and his administration repeatedly mishandled classified intelligence and could contribute to exposing the covert source as a spy.
The decision to carry out the extraction occurred soon after a May 2017 meeting in the Oval Office in which Trump discussed highly classified intelligence with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and then-Russian Ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak. The intelligence, concerning ISIS in Syria, had been provided by Israel.
The disclosure to the Russians by the President, though not about the Russian spy specifically, prompted intelligence officials to renew earlier discussions about the potential risk of exposure, according to the source directly involved in the matter.
At the time, then-CIA Director Mike Pompeo told other senior Trump administration officials that too much information was coming out regarding the covert source, known as an asset. An extraction, or “exfiltration” as such an operation is referred to by intelligence officials, is an extraordinary remedy when US intelligence believes an asset is in immediate danger.
Had CNN followed the first rule of journalism, and checked with the intelligence community to confirm or deny the information before reporting, it would have saved itself a lot of bother.
From the office run by CIA Director Gina Haspel — a lifelong Agency officer:
“Misguided speculation that the President's handling of our nation's most sensitive intelligence…drove an alleged exfiltration operation is inaccurate."

The CIA’s director of public affairs, Brittany Bramell, also slammed CNN in a statement, saying “CNN’s narrative that the Central Intelligence Agency makes life-or-death decisions based on anything other than objective analysis and sound collection is simply false.”
“Misguided speculation that the President’s handling of our nation’s most sensitive intelligence—which he has access to each and every day—drove an alleged exfiltration operation is inaccurate.” Bramell added.
“CNN’s reporting is not only incorrect,it has the potential to put lives in danger,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham also commented.
So, in summary, CNN, desperate for ratings and without a Trump/Russia conspiracy theory to push anymore, invented a new one and pushed that fake news to the detriment of US intelligence and potentially the lives of those working in its interest.
CNN staff are driven by a relentless, blind, deranged obsession with opposing Trump, regardless of the consequences. This is not the attitude of a serious news organization, it’s more in line with the behavior of the likes of Antifa.
Poll: Majority of Americans Think Biden Unlikely to Finish 4 Year Term in White House
Biden’s VP pick will become president if he beats Trump.
In another illustration of how many Americans are concerned about Joe Biden’s advancing age and declining mental faculties, a new Rasmussen poll has found that 59 per cent of likely voters don’t believe he’ll finish a 4 year term in the White House.
Broken down along party lines, 74 per cent of Republicans believe Biden won’t make it through his first term while 49 per cent of Democrats agree.
Just 14% of voters think it’s “not at all likely” that Biden’s running mate will become president before his first term ends.
Questions about Biden’s age and his alleged cognitive decline have dogged his campaign for months.
During an interview last week, Biden once again stumbled over his words while trying to assert that he didn’t need to be mentally tested.
Polls show that 38 per cent of American voters think Biden has “some form of dementia,” including one in five Democrats. 61 per cent of voters also think Biden should address the dementia issue publicly.
If the majority opinion holds true and Biden wins the election, that means his running mate is virtually guaranteed to become president before 20204.
The current favorites to become Biden’s VP pick are Kamala Harris and Susan Rice, although Michelle Obama is still listed as an outsider by many political betting websites.

Stelter Meltdown: CNN Host Says It’s “Otherworldly” To Question Biden’s Mental Health
“This stuff is offensive”.
CNN host Brian Stelter declared Sunday that it is both “offensive and otherworldly” that “right-wing” radio hosts would dare to question the mental health of Joe Biden, despite his constant brain freezes and bizarre gaffes.
“Let’s go on a trip together to a totally alternative universe.” Stelter sardonically began, adding “You never hear what’s happening there unless you tune in to right-wing talk radio, but you need to know what they are saying because the most popular, most powerful talkers in the country have trained their sights on Joe Biden.”
“What you are about to hear them say is mind-boggling. Look, whether you like Biden or not, this stuff is offensive and otherworldly,” Stelter added before playing clips of Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Ben Shapiro and Michael Savage all noting how Biden doesn’t appear to be playing with a full deck.
“Every day, every day, this is what’s airing on the radio,” Stelter whined.
“There’s Michael Savage saying, I pity the man. There’s Mark Levin saying, I think Biden’s in a nursing home. What the heck is going on on these programs?” he further complained.
The CNN host proclaimed that “We are going to see negative partisanship fuel the next three months, the last three months of this never-ending campaign.”
It wasn’t so “offensive”, however, when Stelter did the EXACT same thing he is now calling “otherworldly”, when he continually questioned Trump’s mental health for weeks on end:

Conspiracy Clinton: Trump’s Coronavirus Relief Executive Orders Are A “Stunt”
Hillary says Trump doesn’t really want to help Americans and is seeking to kill social security.
Election loser Hillary Clinton has a fresh Trump conspiracy theory… the President’s executive orders to counter the economic disaster caused by the pandemic are just a “stunt” to make himself look good, and to do away with Social Security and Medicare.
With economic collapse imminent, and Congress stalling, Trump took matters into his own hands, and issued orders to pump almost $2 trillion into the economy to support Americans in need now.
The new orders will:
- Provide a payroll tax holiday to Americans earning less than $100,000 per year.
- Extend unemployment benefits by $400 per week
- Defer student loan repayments through the end of the year
- Extend protections against evictions
— The White House (@WhiteHouse) August 8, 2020
Trump argued that Democrats plan to raise taxes will kill the economy:
Sleepy Joe Biden just agreed with the Radical Left Democrats to raise Taxes by Three Trillion Dollars. Everyone will pay – Will kill your Stocks, 401k’s, and the ECONOMY. BIG CRASH! #MAGA

Nancy Pelosi called Trump’s actions “unconstitutional slop”:
President Trump’s meager executive actions do little for working families. Republicans must come back to the negotiating table, meet us halfway and work toward a compromise that will truly help American workers and families. #FamiliesFirst #FoxNewsSunday pic.twitter.com/vAvoLnKIoa
— Nancy Pelosi (@SpeakerPelosi) August 9, 2020
Then Hillary Clinton dropped by wither her own theories:
“It’s a stunt. There’s no doubt about it.” Clinton crowed.
“Most likely, as even Republican senators have said, unconstitutional, bypassing Congress, trying to spend money, he has no authority to direct. But it’s also meant to be a big diversion from the hard work the Congress should be engaged in to provide the kind of relief that tens of millions of Americans need.” Clinton continued.
She further argued that because the pandemic is ongoing (which is Trump’s fault), “we can’t act like it is back to normal. People are still unemployed in great numbers. Small businesses have been shuttered, are gasping for help. so the Congress needs to act.”
Clinton expended her conspiracy theory, adding that “Basically, [Trump] signaled that he is going after Social Security and Medicare.”
“I don’t know if he understood that. You never know what he knows and doesn’t know about how the government operates. But basically, he was talking about ending the financial contributions we all make into Social Security and Medicare through the payroll tax,” Hillary claimed.
“He doesn’t really have the authority to do what he tried,” she continued, adding “he sent a signal to voters that, you know, if you were unfortunately unlucky enough to have him be president again, you can watch what he is going to do to social security and medicare. It’s going to hurt not just elderly Americans but every American.”
So, according to Hillary, by pumping trillions into the economy immediately in the face of imminent economic collapse, Trump’s real agenda is to destroy social security.
