        It’s pretty obvious, at this point, that you are a stasi-man. It’s pretty obvious that repressive tolerance, gaslighting and strawman are your weapons.
        Well, OK. State goons are everywhere.
        If, Johnny, you had ever read and understood THE LAW OF THE LAND, you would be shocked stupid ( What’s LCD on that. comatose?) to find out that You and I, and all these zombies, have a moral, ethical and legal duty to resist Fascists and Authoritarians by any all means, including war. The UNHDR and Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes Act is clear on this.

    • NEW YORK TIMES – APRIL 17 2023 – Russian Invasion of Ukraine Revolutionizes NATO Military Strategy

      Shocked by Russian atrocities, NATO is becoming the war-fighting alliance it was during the Cold War, committed to defending “every inch” of its territory from Day 1.

      BRUSSELS — Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the costliest conflict in Europe since World War II, has propelled the North Atlantic Treaty Organization into a full-throttled effort to make itself again into the capable, war-fighting alliance it had been during the Cold War.

      The shift is transformative for an alliance characterized for decades by hibernation and self-doubt. After the recent embrace of long-neutral Finland by the alliance, it also amounts to another significant unintended consequence for Russia’s president, Vladimir V. Putin, of his war.

      NATO is rapidly moving from what the military calls deterrence by retaliation to deterrence by denial. In the past, the theory was that if the Russians invaded, member states would try to hold on until allied forces, mainly American and based at home, could come to their aid and retaliate against the Russians to try to push them back.

      But after the Russian atrocities in areas it occupied in Ukraine, from Bucha and Irpin to Mariupol and Kherson, frontier states like Poland and the Baltic countries no longer want to risk any period of Russian occupation. They note that in the first days of the Ukrainian invasion, Russian troops took land larger than some Baltic nations.

      To prevent that, to deter by denial, means a revolution in practical terms: more troops based permanently along the Russian border, more integration of American and allied war plans, more military spending and more detailed requirements for allies to have specific kinds of forces and equipment to fight, if necessary, in pre-assigned places.

      Mr. Putin has long complained about NATO encirclement and encroachment. But his invasion of Ukraine provoked the alliance to shed remaining inhibitions about increased numbers of Western troops all along NATO’s border with Russia.

      The intention is to make NATO’s forces not only more robust and more capable but also more visible to Russia, a key element of deterrence.

      “The debate is no longer about how much is too much,” for fear of upsetting Moscow, “but how much is enough,” said Camille Grand, until recently NATO’s assistant secretary general for defense investment, and now with the European Council on Foreign Relations.

      The countries of Central and Eastern Europe insist that it is “no longer enough to say we’re ready to deter by promising to reconquer, but that we need to defend every inch of NATO territory from day one,” said Mr. Grand. “It’s not okay to be under Russian control for a few months until the cavalry arrives.”

      NATO now has deployed a battalion of multinational troops to eight countries along the eastern border with Russia. It is detailing how to enlarge those forces to brigade strength in those frontline states to enhance deterrence and be able to push back invading forces from the start. And it is also tasking thousands more forces, in case of war, to move quickly in support, with newly detailed plans for mobility and logistics and stiffer requirements for readiness.

      “NATO is an organization that took a holiday from history,” said Ivo H. Daalder, a former American ambassador to NATO. Mr. Putin, he said, “reminded us that we have to think about defense and think about it collectively.”

      The alliance will put more troops under the direct control of NATO’s top military officer, the supreme allied commander Europe, Gen. Christopher G. Cavoli, who also commands American forces in Europe.

      Under a new rubric of “deter and defend,” General Cavoli is for the first time since the Cold War integrating American and allied war-fighting plans, a senior NATO official said, speaking anonymously because of the topic’s sensitivity. Americans are back at the heart of Europe’s defense, he said, deciding with NATO precisely how America will defend Europe.

      For the first time since the Cold War, the official said, East European countries will know exactly what NATO intends to do to defend them — what each country should be able to do for itself and how other countries will be tasked to help. And Western countries in the alliance will know where their forces need to go, with what and how to get there.

      NATO is also aligning its longer-term demands from allies with its current operational needs. If in the past NATO countries might be asked to send some lightly armed expeditionary forces with helicopters to Afghanistan, for instance, now they will be tasked to defend particular parts of NATO territory itself.

      For Britain, just one example, that will mean that it provide more heavy armor to defend NATO’s eastern flank, even if the British government would prefer to continue to field a lighter, more expeditionary army, requiring less money, fewer people and less expensive heavy equipment.

      The planning in NATO is already intrusive but will become more demanding and specific. Countries answer questionnaires about their capacities and equipment; NATO planners tell them what’s missing or could be cut or thinned.

      In one case, said Robert G. Bell, defense adviser to the American mission at NATO until 2017, Denmark was told to stop wasting money building submarines. Canada was told it must provide air-refueling planes.

      Countries can push back — for years some nations with frigates refused to put air-defense missiles on them for fear of seeming escalatory — but they must defend their plans before all NATO members. If the other allies all agree that a country’s plan is inadequate, they can vote to force adaptation in what is known as “consensus minus one.” Such a demand is rare, but happened with Canada, Mr. Bell said.

      Now the demands will be tougher and more rigorous to bring the alliance back to a war-fighting capacity in Europe and make deterrence credible — to ensure that NATO can fight a high-intensity war against a rival, Russia, from the first day of conflict.

      The change at NATO began slowly in 2014 after Russia annexed Crimea, igniting insurrection in the eastern Donbas. At their summit that year in Wales, NATO allies agreed on a goal for military spending of 2 percent of gross domestic product by 2024. At the moment, only eight of 31 countries, including new member Finland, met that goal, but military spending has increased significantly, up $350 billion since 2014.

      At the next NATO summit this July, a new spending plan will be agreed upon, with 2 percent of G.D.P. regarded as a minimum. Given Russia’s difficulties in Ukraine, if major countries spend between 2.5 percent and 3 percent of G.D.P. on the military over the next decade, that should be sufficient, the senior NATO official said.

      After 2014, NATO also agreed to put four small battalion-sized forces in the Baltic States and Poland. The idea was to engage invaders and hope to get reinforcements in place a week or two after an invasion.

      After Russia’s invasion last year, NATO added four more forward-based battalions, to make eight such forces along NATO’s eastern edge, now including Romania, Slovakia, Hungary and Bulgaria. But the total troop number for all eight battle groups is only 10,232, NATO says.

      NATO now is planning how to scale up to brigade-sized forces, meaning putting about 4,000 to 5,000 troops in each country to make NATO’s enhanced deterrence “a more robust tripwire,” Mr. Bell said.

      That will also mean improving NATO’s air defenses — a major shortcoming from the shrinking militaries of the last 30 years, when few imagined Russian missiles raining down on Europe — and more numerous and elaborate troop exercises, visible to Moscow.

      Previously, the annual exercises of NATO’s nuclear forces, known as Steadfast Noon, were kept quiet. But last year, after Russia’s invasion, the exercise went ahead openly. It was important, a NATO official said, to show Moscow that the alliance wasn’t deterred by nuclear threats.

      NATO’s military headquarters, the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe, is also being strengthened.

      The thousands of allied soldiers working there are being transformed into a major strategic and war-fighting command, charged with drawing up the alliance’s plans to integrate and deploy allied troops — including cyber, space and maritime forces — in various contingencies. Those can range from planning a hybrid war to a regional war that spirals out of control to an all-out conflict involving nuclear weapons.

      The NATO command needs to figure out how to incorporate Finland and likely Sweden, and decide where their forces must commit to collective defense. For instance, should Finland be part of the headquarters that covers the Baltics or the one that covers the Arctic routes and the High North, or both?

      In principle, NATO’s leadership can call on 13 corps of 40,000 to 50,000 troops each to fight if necessary. But NATO’s actual, deployable strength is nowhere near that, senior NATO officials concede. So General Cavoli and his team must figure out how best and where to deploy what is really available in a crisis, while trying to ensure that countries continue to improve their readiness.

      One of the least glamorous challenges is, simply speaking, mobility and logistics: getting troops and tanks and guns where they need to be as quickly as they need to be there, and sustaining them.

      Right now there are major post-Cold War roadblocks that include lack of storage, lack of suitable rail cars, lack of emergency rights of way to cross borders and use of roadways, issues that involve decisions by civilian authorities.

      But even supplying Ukraine from a peaceful Poland is proving a major logistical headache, said another NATO official, who also spoke on the topic under condition of anonymity. Trucks are backed up with supplies, there’s a shortage of railway cars that can carry heavy equipment like tanks, and permissions must be obtained at every European border. Doing it in a shooting war, he said, with missiles flying, bombs dropping, the internet crashing and refugees racing in the other direction, is another challenge entirely.

      “NATO didn’t think seriously about defending its own territory and now it must,” said Mr. Daalder, president of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. It did that for 40 years, and even if the muscles have atrophied, the muscle memory is there, he said. “The key is to have people and governments who never lived through this, learning how to do it.”

    • the daily beast – Tucker Carlson Duped By Fake Russian Propaganda Docs on Ukraine War

      Tucker Carlson laid into President Joe Biden and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Thursday, accusing them of committing “crimes” in their support of Ukraine. He referenced a “leaked” Pentagon slideshow that, Carlson said, proves the American people are being lied to about the status of the war in Ukraine.

      “The second thing we learned from these slides is that despite direct U.S. involvement, Ukraine is in fact losing the war,” Carlson said last week. “Seven Ukrainians are being killed for every Russian. Ukrainian air defenses have been utterly degraded. Ukraine is losing. The Biden administration is perfectly aware of this.”

      As it turns out, Carlson is the one peddling lies about Ukraine to the American people—the slides he referenced were apparently doctored by a known Russian propagandist that lives in the United States.

      “Tucker Carlson pushed a fake version of a U.S. intelligence document about Ukrainian war casualties,” said Yahoo News senior correspondent Michael Weiss on Twitter. “It was doctored by a fraud podcaster who claimed to be a Russian woman from Luhansk. In reality, Sarah Bils is a former U.S. Navy clerk from New Jersey—and she pocketed all the money she claimed to raise for Russian causes.”

      mediaite –Tucker Carlson Duped By Fake Military Documents on Ukraine War Shared By Russian Propagandist

      Fox News’s top-rated host, Tucker Carlson, accused the media and U.S. government of lying about the war in Ukraine, reportedly on the basis of altered versions of leaked military documents shared by a well-known pro-Russian propagandist.

      Over the weekend, The Wall Street Journal’s chief foreign-affairs correspondent Yaroslav Trofimov interviewed the woman behind the social media channel, from which Carlson appeared to get a critical piece of information he used to attack the Biden administration in a searing screed last Thursday.

      Trofimov spoke with Sarah Bils, who runs the Donbass Devushka (Girl) network, after she was unmasked by users on Twitter and Reddit. Bils told the Journal she is one of 15 people “all over the world” who post to the network which has tens of thousands of followers on Telegram, Twitter, YouTube, and even Spotify – where she hosted a podcast in a fake accent as Donbass Devushka.

      Bils, a former U.S. Navy noncommissioned officer and whose online persona claimed to be born in Luhansk, Ukraine, had a security clearance while in the Navy, but told the Journal she was not involved in leaking any information, just posting online.

      “On April 5, the Donbass Devushka Telegram account posted four of the allegedly leaked classified documents to its 65,000 followers, according to a screenshot seen by The Wall Street Journal. That led several large Russian social-media accounts to pick up on the documents, after which the Pentagon launched an investigation. Ms. Bils says another administrator posted the four files,” the Journal reported on Sunday.

      “I obviously know the gravity of top-secret classified materials. We didn’t leak them,” Bils said during the interview. The accounts Bils ran, however, described themselves as engaging in “Russian–style information warfare” and sold merchandise related to the notorious mercenary Wagner group and the Russian military – claiming proceeds would go to “our men on the front.”

      On April 5, the Donbass Devushka Telegram posted the four files that appeared to be leaked from Airman Jack Teixeira, writing, “Some very interesting potential intel.”

      “The authenticity cannot be confirmed but looks to be very damning nato information,” the post added. Trofimov reported that the post “remained online for several days” and that Bils told him “another administrator had posted these images, and that she was the one who later deleted them.”

      “I don’t even know the authenticity of the documents or what they say. I am not very well versed in reading documents like that,” Bils added.

      Trofimov explains that “some of the slides reposted on the Telegram account overseen by Ms. Bils had been altered from the otherwise identical photographs allegedly posted by Airman Teixeira on Discord—changed to inflate Ukrainian losses and play down Russian casualties.”

      A week later a post appeared on the Donbass Devushka Telegram claiming, “We would never edit content for our viewers.”

      The Eastern European news source Nexta reported on Sunday how some of the claims from Donbass Devushka’s slides appeared to make their way to Tucker Carlson Tonight.

      Nexta reported on Sunday that “Fox News host Tucker Carlson used the faked version circulated on “Donbass Devushka’s” Telegram channel to claim that Ukraine had a 7-to-1 troop loss ratio and is “losing the war.”

      Indeed, last Thursday in an angry rant in which Carlson accused both President Joe Biden and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin of committing “crimes” related to supporting Ukraine fend off the Russian invasion, Carlson cited that statistic.

      “The second thing we learned from these slides is that despite direct U.S. involvement, Ukraine is in fact losing the war. Seven Ukrainians are being killed for every Russian. Ukrainian air defenses have been utterly degraded. Ukraine is losing. The Biden administration is perfectly aware of this,” Carlson declared. Carlson has long claimed Russia’s brutal invasion of Ukraine is going far better than the media has reported, all while remaining a fierce critic of Ukraine’s leadership.

      Renowned investigative journalist Michael Weiss detailed the whole episode on Twitter, writing, “Tucker Carlson pushed a fake version of a U.S. intelligence document about Ukrainian war casualties. It was doctored by a fraud podcaster who claimed to be a Russian woman from Luhansk. In reality, Sarah Bils is a former U.S. Navy clerk from New Jersey—and she pocketed all the money she claimed to raise for Russian causes.”

      It is a shoot-the-messenger situation due to leaked documents that show officials in the U.S. telling big fat lies about the conflict in Ukraine and downplaying the U.S. role.

      For instance, the documents show that “American-made smart bombs are falling victim to Russian electronic jamming in Ukraine, causing them to miss their targets,” according to Politico.

      A Defense Department official has confirmed this.

      You’d think that Russia would be happy about this validating leak but Russian expert Gilbert Doctorow reports that they are not. “It strengthens the argument on their side by those who say that insanity rules in the USA, that you have to be prepared for every eventuality in escalation of the war.

  9. More Unanswered Red Flags Regarding Jack Texeira
    By Larry Johnson Apr. 16, 2023 7:00 am281 Comments

    Several former military and intelligence professionals have contacted me and voiced similar doubts about the pat story being circulated regarding National Guard Airman Jack Texeira and the allegations that he removed TOP SECRET documents from a SCIF, photographed them and then posted them to a gamer chat. They all agree, something is not right. The media account does not make sense.

    The biggest oddity are the two two separate documents from the CIA’s Operations Center. Neither are complete and both deal only with the Ukrainian/Russian war. To reiterate a point from my previous article, that CIA Operations Center produces two daily reports — one in the morning and one in the afternoon. It is not a “Community” product, i.e., it is not distributed to the other intelligence agencies. It is an internal CIA document (of course, it is available to the Director of National Intelligence).

    Texeira’s alleged possession of two separate reports is doubly odd because he did not copy the full reports. The one dated 1 March 2023 only shows 3 of 8 pages. If he was taking the documents to impress the youngsters on the gamer chat, why did he not take the whole enchilada? And why did he only publish the portions of the intel report that dealt exclusively with Ukraine and Russia?

    There has been some media reports that he also posted a State Department EXDIS cable. I have not seen it and cannot confirm that it exists. If it does, that would be another huge red flag. EXDIS is bureaucratic speak for EXCLUSIVE DISSEMINATION. It has a cousin, NODIS — i.e., NO DISTRIBUTION. The U.S. military does not have access to such cables.

    There was a time when State EXDIS was available to U.S. military commands on a restricted basis. That was pre-Chelsea Manning. After Manning’s leaks in 2010, that access was cut off. I know this first hand because I was part of a team scripting military exercises for all U.S. regional commands (i.e., EUCOM, NORTHCOM, AFRICOM, PACOM, CENTCOM and SOUTHCOM) during the course of a year. I was the State Department Subject Matter Expert. That means I had the job of creating cable traffic from the Secretary of State or U.S. Embassies that the U.S. military might see during a terrorist crisis. Prior to the Manning/Wikileaks leak, I had full access to State Department messages, including EXDIS. After Manning, that access was terminated. Not just for me but for all the uniformed personnel I worked with. All held TS SCI clearances. There has been no change in that policy, which means there is no way that Jack Texeira would have had any access to copy and take a State Department EXDIS message.

    Another curiosity with the story, apart from Jack’s youth and the claim that he held TS SCI clearances and had access to CIA internal reports, is the schedule of his Massachusetts Air National Guard unit. That outfit had not been called up and assigned a 24 x 7 mission. Instead, the Air National Guard unit meets one weekend a month. In other words, Jack had to work his magic over a two or three day period surrounded by peers and those in command of the unit. You do not just show up and pursue your own interests. There are drills and assigned work, which is supervised by Non-Commissioned Officers (i.e., Sergeants) and Officers.

    The documents I have seen posted on Twitter and Telegram, were dated 28 February, 1 March and 2 March, i.e., Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. According to the MI-6 funded Bellingcat, those documents were published on 4 March, a Saturday. Let’s assume that Texeira’s National Guard unit assembled for drill on March 4. We’re asked to believe that Jack Texeira showed up for monthly Air National Guard duty on Saturday, quickly scoured the high side computer for sensitive documents, printed them off, smuggled them out of the SCIF, returned home sometime after 5 pm (normal end of duty day), photographed the documents and quickly uploaded them to the Discord server. If that is what happened, it smacks of urgency. Most young airmen, after a long day at work, want to go out and party rather than stay at home photographing documents.

    I remain skeptical of the narrative and hope by raising these questions that some genuine journalists will explore the oddities and try to get to the ground truth.

  10. ‘Blue Collar’ Actor Gets Real About Cognitive Dissonance Seen in Hollywood: ‘Jesus Is Our Lord and Savior’
    By Jack Davis, The Western Journal Apr. 17, 2023 9:30 am53 Comments

    The world far from Hollywood is what made actor Sean Patrick Flanery a success — and he says that’s the world he wants for his family.

    Flanery, who stars in the new movie “Nefarious,” spoke about the contrast between his lifestyle and the glitz and glitter of Hollywood in an interview with Breitbart News’ editor-in-chief Alex Marlow on Sirius XM Patriot 125’s Breitbart News Daily, according to Breitbart.

    “I’ve made movies where I kill 10, 15 people, nobody has a problem with that. But if I play a role that says, ‘I believe Jesus is our Lord and Savior,’ that’s an issue. It’s so odd when you think about it. In ‘Boondock Saints,’ how many people did I shoot in the head? They didn’t go through the justice system,” he said.

    Speaking of his success, he said, “a lot of it is, unapologetically, traditional family values.”

    “Almost everything in my life good came from a somewhat conservative approach,” he said.

    “I’m not embarrassed by that. It’s the way I want to raise my kids,” Flanery continued.

    Fleeing California for Texas helped him achieve what he wanted for his family.

    “I always wanted that for my kids. We were thinking about going back and forth but we never actually did. We sold everything and our only regret was why didn’t we do it sooner?” he said.

    Flanery, who has starred in the series “The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles” and movies such as “The Boondock Saints” calls himself a “blue-collar worker.”

    “I’ve made a career doing movies nobody sees … I haven’t done any big-budget films that have heavy-handed studio involvement,” he said in an interview with the Daily Wire.

    “The worst film I’ve ever done is better than any of the real jobs I ever had. I used to change the deep-fat fryer at Church’s Fried Chicken,” he said.

    He noted to Breitbart that “I’ve never had marquee roles that allow you retire on a fat payday. I’ve never had that. I still work to pay bills. And I’m grateful for that.”

    He said that many of his liberal friends look at him with awe.

    “They love the result, but if they saw the recipe, they would tend to hate it, based on the labels alone,” he said.

    In speaking of his new movie, Flanery noted that in this case, the script of the movie was worthy of the message it wanted to send, according to Breitbart.

    “A large percentage of faith-based films and right-of-center films, in my opinion and I don’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings, but they’re just not good,” he said. “I believe and support the content, but just because you have good morals doesn’t mean you can play the guitar like Eddie Van Halen.”

    “When I read the script, I said this script is worthy of everything the best Hollywood has to offer. I think it stands on its own, across party lines and across religious lines. There’s a place for really every demographic to enjoy this film,” he said.

  13. CBC ‘pausing’ activities on Twitter after being labeled ‘government-funded’

    ‘Our journalism is impartial and independent,’ CBC said, while arguing that it doesn’t meet Twitter’s own definition of ‘government-funded’

    CBC/Radio-Canada says it will halt its activity on Twitter after the social media platform labeled the public broadcaster “government-funded media,” a term Twitter defines as having some level of government involvement in news content.

    “Our journalism is impartial and independent. To suggest otherwise is untrue. That is why we are pausing our activities” on Twitter, CBC said in a tweet Monday afternoon.

    Twitter added the label to CBC’s account Sunday. The platform defines a “government-funded” media outlet as an outlet “where the government provides some or all of the outlet’s funding and may have varying degrees of government involvement over editorial content.”

    CBC said in a statement Monday the labeling is “untrue and deceptive.” It said “Canadians know that CBC/Radio-Canada is publicly funded through a parliamentary appropriation that is voted upon by all members of Parliament. Its editorial independence is protected by law in the Broadcasting Act” and its journalism is “independent and subject to our Journalistic Standards and Practices.”

    CBC/Radio-Canada received $1.24 billion in parliamentary appropriations in 2021-2022 and earned $651 million in revenue, the biggest proportion of which came from advertising.

    “Twitter can be a powerful tool for our journalists to communicate with Canadians, but it undermines the accuracy and professionalism of the work they do to allow our independence to be falsely described in this way,” the statement said.

    Leon Mar, a spokesperson for the broadcaster, said the pause means “we will not be publishing on our corporate Twitter account or any of the CBC and Radio-Canada news-related accounts.”

    Following the announcement, the CBC account tweeted links to its Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn corporate accounts.

    Twitter’s labeling of CBC comes after the platform applied the tag to British public broadcaster BBC News and NPR in the U.S. NPR left the platform while Twitter changed BBC’s tag to “publicly-funded” after the broadcaster objected.

    Asked whether the broadcaster has contacted Twitter to ask it to also change CBC’s label, Mar said “sent a letter to Twitter asking them to reexamine the designation.”

    Twitter responded to a request for comment with an automatic reply consisting of a poop emoji.

    Last week, Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre wrote to Twitter owner Elon Musk asking Twitter to apply the tag to CBC. On Monday, both Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh accused Poilievre of turning to an American billionaire to attack the CBC.

  14. Hunter Laptop Emails Show Joe Biden Traveled to Ireland with Hunter and Jim Biden Who Met with China’s CEFC Executives
    By Brian Lupo Apr. 17, 2023 5:35 pm40 Comments

    As Joe Biden settles back in at the White House after his trip last week to Ireland, investigations by the US Attorney of Delaware and the U.S. House continue on with recent revelations of transactions flagged as SARs, or Suspicious Activity Reports, regarding Hunter Biden’s business dealings with Chinese energy firm CEFC.

    Hunter Biden, ironically, accompanied his father on his trip to Ireland this past week. “Ironically”? Why do you say that? Well, it’s not the first time Joe and Hunter traveled to Ireland together nor is it the most interesting.

    In March 2022, the Washington Post published an article titled “Inside Hunter Biden’s Multimillion-dollar Deals with a Chinese Energy Company.” The article, surprisingly, was a fair assessment of the evidence that has recently been unearthed from emails contained in Hunter’s now-infamous laptop.

    The WaPo article mentions the Chinese Energy conglomerate, CEFC, paying entities controlled by Hunter and his uncle, James Biden, $4.8 million over the course of 14 months.

  15. Boom! Jim Jordan Reveals He Has Evidence Connecting the Biden Campaign to the Bogus Letter Which Called Hunter’s Laptop Russian Disinformation
    By Cullen Linebarger Apr. 17, 2023 5:15 pm100 Comments

    Jim Hoft previously reported 51 former intelligence officials in October 2020 signed and published a letter that baselessly decried the contents of Hunter’s ‘laptop from hell’ had “all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”

    The deep state stooges claimed the laptop looked like Russian disinformation without citing any actual evidence to back up the claim. Rather, the officials based their fallacious statements on their so-called experience.

    Reporters led by Natasha Bertrand, who wrote the original Politico article citing the intelligence officials, knew the officials’ claims were completely false yet they chose to gaslight the public anyway.

    Joe Biden also lied about his son’s laptop during a debate.
