The political establishment is busy blaming Russia for former vice president Joe Biden’s inability to run an effective campaign to remain some kind of relevant figure amongst the ruling class. The preemptive blame is already coming in and it’s all Russia’s fault!
The American political establishment is already lining up excuses for losing the 2020 election, blaming a Russian “disinformation” campaign (yes, once again) for the flailing campaign of Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden. As Biden continues to slip in the polls, while communists like Sanders, Buttigieg, and Warren surge, the campaign team is busy spinning their own official narrative.
As Biden, once the solid favorite in Democrat primary polls, continues to tank, the usual suspects are emerging to pin his fall from grace on the Kremlin, and not Biden’s own mouth, problematic family members, or uninspiring policies. –RT
“US intelligence and law enforcement officials” and are already probing whether Biden is the target of a Russian “disinformation” campaign, according to two anonymous officials who spoke to Bloomberg on Friday.
Putting aside the insult implicit in telling voters who dislike Biden that their opinions are not their own, the claim – unsupported by evidence in the manner of most ‘Russian meddling’ allegations – suggests that Democrats are already bracing for the loss of the 2020 election and rushing to get the narrative scaffolding in place to explain away a second Trump victory.
Even after the “Russia hacked the 2016 election” narrative fell apart with the ignominious “no further indictments” conclusion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, boomeranging into an Inspector General inquiry and a criminal probe of the FBI malfeasance that kicked off the whole affair, the American political elite don’t seem to be able to resist the temptation to blame Russia yet again. –RT
Bloomberg’s breathless report blames Russia for promoting Biden’s own Ukrainian scandal while Trump was being impeached over allegedly withholding military aid to pressure Kiev into restarting a probe of the natural gas firm where Biden’s son was a director. The case against Trump was shaky from the start, and only Democrats’ white-hot hatred for the president pushed it to the level of an impeachable offense.
Yet the much more solid quid-pro-quo case against Biden – who publicly bragged about bullying Ukraine into firing its chief prosecutor by withholding $1 billion in IMF loan guarantees – went largely ignored in the US media, except for conservative outlets. This is hardly “disinformation,” unless Bloomberg is using the Newspeak definition floated in a recent academic paper that includes “truths arranged to serve a particular purpose.” –RT
But it isn’t just Russia that seeks to “interfere” in the U.S.’s elections. According to the ruling class elitists, China and Iran will attempt “to interfere in the voting process or influence voter perceptions,” a joint statement from seven agencies in November warned. So bring on the censorship! The ruling class is desperately trying to make people feel okay about being censored. Literally anything could be construed as “influencing voter perceptions,” and that’s the point: to retroactively paint perfectly innocent reporting as agitprop. This paves the way for a major crackdown on alt-media and other forms of dissent – one that has actually already begun.
On behalf of the entire ruling class, the mainstream media has been working to craft blame for another loss to Donald Trump. Whether Trump is to come out victorious or not, at this point, is there any doubt that we’re being manipulated and brainwashed to support those who are in power and want to remain that way?
