When Donald Trump was elected and inaugurated as president back in 2016, the mainstream media was in an absolute tailspin of rage learning that Hillary Clinton did not win. In their rage, the mainstream media went full potato doing their best to malign Trump every which way they could to make him appear to the public that he was an unhinged moron. When Trump made comments about the “deep state” these propagandists in the media took those statements and twisted them to paint the newly elected president as nuts as possible to the American people.
Right off the bat, Trump was ripped apart for stating that then-President Barack Obama had his Trump Tower offices “wiretapped,” using a phase for an outmoded technique of spying on someone.
‘Wiretapped??’ the leftists sneered. ‘Wiretapped? Seriously? Does anyone even do that anymore?’
And of course, as it turned out The New York Times actually ran a story just a day before Trump was inaugurated confirming that Obama was SPYING on Trump. These leftist hacks even used the word “wiretapped” in their newspaper headlines.
Turned out that Trump was right.
What’s more, Trump was right about a LOT of things.
Trump claimed to know more about than the media, or the ‘experts,’ or the pundits, or the deep state intelligence types who constantly leaked fake ‘intelligence’ to keep him off-balance so he was always playing defense and not offensive.
In fact, Trump was right about a lot of things, but the left just cannot admit to it since it shows the world just how wrong they all have been for a very long time.
Then there was the doozy of all that these media hacks used to discredit Trump for the majority of his presidency “Russia, Russia, Russia”.
The New York Times reported on June 26 during the throes of the 2020 election:
American intelligence officials have concluded that a Russian military intelligence unit secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants for killing coalition forces in Afghanistan — including targeting American troops — amid the peace talks to end the long-running war there, according to officials briefed on the matter.
The United States concluded months ago that the Russian unit, which has been linked to assassination attempts and other covert operations in Europe intended to destabilize the West or take revenge on turncoats, had covertly offered rewards for successful attacks last year.
Trump denied the report was accurate. His administration denied the report was accurate. Naturally, no one on the left believed him, with pundits galore calling for — wait for it! — impeachment.
Only, as the Daily Beast reported Thursday, those ‘Bountygate’ claims from ‘U.S. intelligence officials’ were complete crap:
The Kremlin had spread money around the longtime central Asian battlefield for militants to kill remaining U.S. forces. It sparked a massive outcry from Democrats and their #resistance amplifiers about the treasonous Russian puppet in the White House whose admiration for Vladimir Putin had endangered American troops.
But on Thursday, the Biden administration announced that U.S. intelligence only had “low to moderate” confidence in the story after all. Translated from the jargon of spyworld, that means the intelligence agencies have found the story is, at best, unproven—and possibly untrue.
“The United States intelligence community assesses with low to moderate confidence that Russian intelligence officers sought to encourage Taliban attacks U.S. and coalition personnel in Afghanistan in 2019 and perhaps earlier,” a senior administration official told the Daily Beast.
“This information puts a burden on the Russian government to explain its actions and take steps to address this disturbing pattern of behavior,” the senior official said, adding that President Joe Biden isn’t ‘prepared’ yet to fully walk back the story.
Translation: The story was a hoax, it was BS like Trump said it was, but Biden doesn’t want to admit it because it would help Trump politically.
