      There is no evidence that Russia is interfering in the 2020 US presidential election in order to reelect Trump. Nor is there any reason for Russia to prefer Trump, who has done nothing for Russia. Indeed, Trump has imposed sanctions and endangered Russia by withdrawing from arms control agreements. The claims of interference reported by the New York Times come from unnamed sources, described as “US intelligence officials,” in a recent briefing of the House Intelligence Committee organized by Rep. Adam Schiff. We do not even know if such claims were made or whether this is another of Schiff’s many inventions planted on the New York Times, Schiff’s partner in crime and fake news.

      Schiff is the highly partisan chairman of the House Intelligence Committee who was a driver of Russiagate and the subsequent effort to impeach President Trump. He is a known liar, having been caught in numerous lies and misrepresentations. Schiff arranged these new claims of Russian interference in order that, in the event of Trump’s reelection, the Democrats can tie up Trump for the entirety of his second term with bogus charges just as they did Trump’s first term. In that way the Democrats, the political party of racial minorities, sexual perverts, and immigrant-invaders, can prevent Trump from politically organizing white Americans whose lives, careers, and safety have been harmed by global US corporations transferring their jobs abroad and by the increasing attacks on white Americans as racists and “white supremacists.” Despite the First Amendment, white Americans are losing the right of free speech, because if they “offend” a protected category of person when they exercise their free speech right, they risk being fired from their job and being investigated for a “hate crime,” a crime that can only be committed by white people. White Americans are slowly being marginalized, and, rightly or wrongly, they see Trump as a protector.

      If intelligence officials actually made the claim of Russian interference, money is the reason. The intelligence community gains more power and a larger budget the more threats, real or imagined, that can be claimed. The intelligence community, which has badly served Trump during the Russia-gate and Impeach-gate hoaxes, is worried that they will experience cutbacks during Trump’s second term. Therefore, they are determined to keep the “Russian Threat” alive.

      The notion of Russian interference in US elections is hilariously funny. There is interference in US elections from many sources. Interest groups interfere with massive amounts of money. The Israel Lobby is the most notorious. Even if the Russian government went all out to interfere in American elections, Moscow could not possibly match the influence of the Israel Lobby.

      Powerful private interest groups also interfere. Candidates who stand for election need their campaigns financed by Wall Street and the banks, the military/security complex, the extractive industries (energy, mining, and timber), agribusiness, the pharmaceutical corporations, real estate interests, and so on.

      ORDER IT NOW

      The political parties themselves interfere by rigging electronic voting machines, by making voting difficult for supporters of the opposite party by such means as culling voting lists and providing an insufficient number of voting precincts for all to vote. Democrats have also been noted for voting grave yards by stuffing ballot boxes with votes of dead people.

      Many US elections are simply stolen. Many Democrats believe, not without reason, that the US Supreme Court stole the 2000 presidential election for George W. Bush.

      The obvious conclusion is that even if Russia tried to influence the election, Russia’s efforts would be insignificant compared to the many powerful forces interfering in American elections.

      So what is the purpose of stressing Russian interference? Moreover, the complaint of interference doesn’t set well coming, as it does, from the US, whose government has massively interfered in foreign elections—recently Honduras, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Brazil—and invades and overthrows governments—recently Serbia, Georgia, Iraq, Libya, Ukraine, and almost Syria— when election interference is not possible.

      Schiff might succeed in tying up Trump’s second term. Trump’s patriotic American base has been successfully brainwashed by neoconservatives to view Russia as a dire threat to the United States. This indoctrinated view of Trump supporters and right-wing talk radio, makes unfounded charges of Russian interference believable to flag-waving Americans. The consequence is that Trump’s base is susceptible to Democrat charges that Trump has sold out America to Russia. If you listen to Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, what you hear is: “yes Russia interfered in our election, but it had nothing to do with Trump.” So, Schiff will ask, “why hasn’t Trump stopped Russia from re-electing him?

      A country ruled by propaganda and disinformation has no capability of knowing what its interests are, much less how to defend the unknown interests. A brainwashed population cannot hold on to its country.

      Americans have been brainwashed to believe that multiculturalism, that is, a flood of non-European ethnicities becoming a majority of the population, is in their interest. Americans are told that a flood of non-European immigrants are needed to provide business energy and innovation and to prevent population decline by having high birth rates. White Americans are told that it is in their interest to become a minority that can be dispossessed by the “replacement population.”

      As the entirety of the Democrat Party has swallowed this line, what happens when one of them again becomes President? Considering the virulent propaganda against white Americans, will they become endangered like Jews in Nationalist Socialist Germany?

      1. Adam Schiff’s also an Israel-Firster. He’s very protective of the darlings in Tel Aviv.

        Russian interference in U.S. elections? Bullshit. When I voted in 2016, I didn’t see anyone telling me, “Hey. Comrade Larson, vote for Trump, da?” But Israel? To quote Roberts: ” . . . Even if the Russian government went all out to interfere in American elections, Moscow could not possibly match the influence of the Israel Lobby.”

        American elections are influenced by . . . well, every big lobby with a bank account!

      2. Say hello to White Nakba.

      3. A country ruled by propaganda and disinformation has no capability of knowing what its interests are, much less how to defend the unknown interests. A brainwashed population cannot hold on to its country.

        This is the big takeaway from the article.

        Nevertheless, Trump is a swindling, ZioMafia con-man who doesn’t care a hoot about white people. He’s a pied piper.

      4. there isn’t a large enough fork to stick into schiff. he is done and the probability the democrats retain congress next year is problematic, even more so if sanders is the nominee.

        ‘when ever you see any article using the qualifying word ……may or might … to postulate a possible future reality, step back and appreciate your mind is being massaged.

        you see this sort of baseless bullshit all the time in media stories about this and that on tv and newspapers.

        it is a way obstensibly turn a fairy tale into a possibility

        In this case intelligence sure as hell doesn’t mean cognitive ability.

      6. “Schiff Is Laying Groundwork for Tying Up Trump’s Second Term in More False Charges”

        I’m no fan of Schiff, and I know the stuff about Russia is brainless garbage.

        But Trump is simply the most dangerous, violent idiot ever to be President.

        Almost anything which could “tie him up” would be welcome. Just that much less harm done to the world.

        you miss the point of why trump is even IN the WH.

        separate who he is from how and why he got there.

        trump presence is emblematic of nation that has lost trust in its political elites to safeguard their interests. for that matter bernie sanders is the democratic equal of trump for that constituency.

        people, left right and independent have come to know in their guts our ruling class are:

        incompetent, self serving, crooked and have not the slightest interest in using their power and wealth to improve the nation as a whole.

        our ruling class and the political whores that service them are out for all they can get. you see it in outsources factories to china the past 40 years, unlimited immigration and obama care which is a sop to the health industry scammers.

        the public on both sides of the aisle now understands these truths which is why the msm media can no longer persuade much of anyone about much of anything.

        this is happening all over the western world, france is well along their way to a second french 1789 style revolution……….the yellow vests are the canary on that mine.

        trump like him or hate is merely a symptom, the messenger the bringer of bad news to the ruling class which is why they so desperately want ot be rid of him hoping the clock can be turned back to 2009. not going to happen as we move farther into the 2020’s things throughut the west will get crazier and crazier as the system implodes from a loss of legitimacy. it no longer matters who wins the WH.

        the legitimacy of our present system has failed in too many hearts and minds of the american people.

        The people did not elect Donald Trump because he was Donald Trump. That vote was a huge middle finger aimed at the status quo. I believe a vote for Bernie is much the same, and after the 4 year circus in DC, the people are even more aware of how their voice no longer counts in the policies forced feed us. The beast could be taking it’s last breath, and the results come Nov. will decide if it is to be an easy death, or hard.
        Shift should be finished, but considering the make up of his district, I suspect the brain addled voters will return him once again. I do think that the the make up of the house will change once again, not that it will make much difference.
        Re-elect Trump–let him finally go after the swamp—if you dare.

      9. @John Chuckman

        Almost anything which could “tie him up” would be welcome. Just that much less harm done to the world.

        I can’t agree.

        The process of “tying him up” with bogus charges like Russiagate enrages his base and makes them ever less conscious of the wreckage he is creating globally, as their fury translates into even more uncritical support for Trump. The attacks on Trump also facilitate the transmission of the bogus “deep state” meme which (((those who wield real influence over him))) use to deflect attention from themselves.

        well said.

        my only hope for trump is should he be re elected the same old hoaxes will no longer work allowing him some room to go after the real traitors to the united states, in the msm/deepstaters/and certain democrats, most of the gop never trumpers have left for good or been gelded.

        people like comey, brennan,clapper and the nameless lower rung justice dept lawyers working on their behalf are seditionists that need to be indicted and tried. there is a stadium of federal employee vermin who would be willing to destroy this nation if only they could get rid of trump.

        the real enemy of this country parade themselves in public and on the media every day and have the deluded gall to call themselves patriots.

        in earlier times men like comey, brennan and schiff would have been publicly shot on the white house lawn for treason and not word in their defense would be spoken.

        I hope that PCR’s current article on the Wuhan virus will allow comments as have all his 2020 articles

      12. nymom says:

        Here we go again…

        I even think the Democrats with their media allies just ‘tanked’ Wall Street by exaggerating the impact of the Corona virus over here….trying to stop Trump from winning the next election.

        Sigh!
