The Washington Post has become the lead media in the ongoing Trump/Russia “scandal.” I put the word scandal in parentheses not because I disbelieve that dirty dealing between the Russian Gang and the Trump Gang has happened, but because I do believe in the old saying “What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.” If the entities that are trying to take Trump down were themselves not guilty of equal and greater crimes, I would be overjoyed to see him fall. But that is not the case, and this single fact turns the whole deal into just another in a long line of efforts by the Permanent Government/Deep State to maintain control of the U.S. on all levels by any means necessary.
It is a spat between and among competing criminal gangs, nothing more and nothing less.
The Smart Gang vs. the Dumb Gang, in a nutshell.
So…here’s the shortcut. The Washington Post has a paywall up. I refuse to pay in order to consume lies, so I won’t pay their pittance. WAPO is also invariably the lead media in Google News top-of-the-page reporting on this hustle.
If you click on most of the WAPO google links without a subscription, you get a cutesy little blurb about how you obviously love good reporting and thus should give them your money posthaste. But when WAPO is acting as lead paper in the quite clearly Intelligence Community-led fight against Trump, the paywall magically goes down. (You do know about the Bezos/WAPO/Amazon/CIA nexus, right? You should if you don’t. Do a search. A Google search, even. )
Shortcut to the hustle chase:
Get rid of your WAPO subscription if you have one. All of the anti-Trump hustle is more than thoroughly covered by the rest of the PermaGov-controlled media. Then click on WAPO headlines in Google News. If the paywall is down, the hustle has a new angle. If it’s up, it’s just the same previous news cycle’s PermaGov shit being re-shoveled.
Today’s HOTTEST THING EVER!!!, WAPO-paywall-down hustle news?
The Trump White House is in deep legal trouble, according to Trump’s own standards
Followed by a page of lockstep mumbling about how stupid and contradictory the Trump Gang’s positions are in terms of seeking immunity from prosecution.
Mainstream political posturing, nothing more. The PermaGov Gang has got its shit so together that it never needs to “seek immunity,” because it owns the investigative processes that would make that a necessity.
And so it goes.
P.S. Read my sig.
Things are not what they seem . . . nor are they otherwise . . .
It’s like dat. Exactly like dat. Believe none of it. Whatever is really going down is not being reported by any of the competing media outlets. Not a word of it. It’ll trickle out over the years just as did the real deals surrounding the ’60s assassinations, Watergate, 9/11 etc.By then, it will be too late. The damage will already have been done.
We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”
