NYT recycles old positive news as a scandal

Fresh from libeling Sarah Palin in an editorial, the New York Times breathlessly reported this morning:
Trump Campaign Chief’s Firm Got $17 Million From Pro-Russia Party
So? Clinton's 2008 campaign strategist took millions in the same election. Gore's too. The election was in Ukraine, not Russia.

Politico reported on this eight years ago.

From Politico on November 18, 2009:
Obama consultants land abroad
In Kiev and Kharkiv and other cities in Ukraine, American political consultants who worked against one another in Iowa and New Hampshire and then in the general election are facing off again in a somewhat surreal Eastern European replay of the 2008 campaign.
The firm headed by Hillary Clinton’s former chief strategist, Mark Penn, is helping run incumbent President Victor Yushchenko’s campaign. Meanwhile Paul Manafort, whose firm worked on Republican John McCain’s losing effort, and Tad Devine, a top strategist on the Democratic presidential campaigns of Al Gore in 2000 and John Kerry in 2004, are consulting for Victor Yanukovych, the pro-Russian frontrunner in the polls.
For Penn, Manafort and Devine, foreign elections have been a lucrative source of business for years. But for the Chicago-based media consulting firm AKPD, the contract to help guide Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko’s campaign is part of a new, growth area of business that presented itself after the firm helped Barack Obama win the White House last fall.
I included this in my book, "Trump the Establishment" to show the duplicity of press accounts.

But the New York Times tried to breathe new life into a dead horse so the Times could beat it some more.

Unless Manafort did not pay taxes on his Ukrainian election money, no scandal.

In 2009, working in the Ukrainian election was a good thing. In 2016, it was evil because, um, erm, Russia!

And today, the New York Times recycled this nonsense in an effort to distract attention from its own legal trouble for libeling Palin, as well as CNN's liability in libeling Anthony Scaramucci. Manafort failed to file some paperwork. Maybe. John Podesta failed to file similar paperwork too.

But this is part of the debunked theory that Russia made Trump president. It is crazier than the birth certificate nonsense.

This anti-Russian rhetoric shows another hypocrisy Democratic Party -- which includes CNN, as Harvard found 93% of CNN's stories on Trump are negative.

Alas, Harvard has yet to quantify the percentage of CNN stories that are true.

When Russia was the main section of the Soviet Union, Ted Kennedy kissed up -- and tried to enlist Gorbachev's aid in defeating Reagan.But with a murderous Soviet regime that killed 50 million of its own people gone, Democrats demonize Russia.

Call it Stalin's revenge.

He was smart enough to infiltrate our universities.

The virus mutated and the result is indoctrination, not education -- except in the STEM courses, which will be co-opted as well. The demand for equality between the sexes will mean the dumbing down of science, technology, engineering, and math.

Two plus two will be five.

The result of this infestation 64 years after his death is the fracturing of the nation along racial, religious, and sexual preference lines.

Henry Kissinger who at 94 still knows the difference between the Soviet Union and Russia, gave an interview to two Associated Press reporters who know of him only what their radicalized professors told them.

The snippets they reported of what he said included this major differentiation: "Russia has evolved to what amounts to a definition of absolute security (and) absolute insecurity for some of its neighbors. Russia wants to be accepted by Europe and transcend it simultaneously."

What the Associated Press foolishly left out was that the Soviet Union conquered those neighbors (with the exception of feisty Finland).

Now those neighbors are free.

Those once-conquered neighbors include Ukraine, which suffered the worst under the Holodomor, in which the Soviets deliberately starved and killed 6 million people in the 1930s.

Walter Duranty of the New York Times called it a "food shortage."

The newspaper continues to lie about Ukraine 80 years later.

By resurrecting Manafort's work in Ukraine today, Mexican financier Carlos Slim and the rest of the honchos at the New York Times show they will continue their anti-Trump propaganda till hell freezes over.

Successful litigation by Palin will lower that temperature. I suspect others will file libel suits of their own before this is over.

We may soon know millions of years later the sound of the Tyrannosaurus Rex, as we hear the final screams of the prima donna press as it loses its power over our struggling democratic republic -- forfeited by arrogance and new technology.

  1. And this is where we get the joke about crazed Trump fanatic steals African American's lunch.
    A fellow was a visiting the zoo. As he approached the big cat cages, a small child got to close and a lion reached out and snatched the poor toddler. In a flash, the man leapt the security chain, vaulted the high wall, and began beating the king of the jungle. He then scooped up the baby and passed it through the bars before turning to defend himself from the confused beast.
    Zoo staff were on hand in minutes, and before the lion resumed it's attack tranquilized the beast enabling the man to exit the cage unscathed.
    The mans cloths were tattered from the ordeal, and some one handed him a tee shirt to put on. Just then a reporter arrived. He began asking questions;
    "Weren't you afraid?"
    "No," said the man, "I saw that and it just made me angry that a lion might harm that poor child."
    Noting the shirt he said, "A Bernie backer saved the baby, what a great head line!"
    The man said, "Oh, I don't support Sanders, my shirt was ruined and some one gave me this to wear for now."
    "Oh, OK," said the reporter, "are you a Clinton fan?"
    "No, I support Trump.
    "Oh, I see," said the reporter.
    The headline that night read "crazed Trump fanatic steals African American's lunch"

    1. Why we trust the more, no more, no more.

    2. You can trust the media..... About as far as you can throw a printing press.

  2. Shame we can't put leftie journalists in re-education camps ;)

    1. Can't re-educate them until we educate them..... Can't educate them neither. sigh.

  3. Excellent column, Don! However- I do wish you wouldn't use Obama's photoshopped birth certificate, that no one has seen or proven real, to contrast truth vs. MSM fake news. That story is just more MSM Fake News; it's backed up by plenty of MSM coverage, but no factual evidence.

    There is plenty of proof that Obama's birth certificate (the last phony in a string of phonies released by the WH back then) was photoshopped. Sheriff Joe Arpaio held a press conference where that was established beyond a doubt; for some reason the MSM did not attend that press conference, nor do they ever refer to it.

    Of Fake News, Obama's birth cert. is one of the fakest! (I'll accept that he was born in Hawaii- but the fact is, we don't know. I will never accept that he is a Natural Born Citizen as required by the Constitution, regardless of where he was born; his father was not a US citizen.)

    Sheriff’s probe finds Obama birth certificate ‘fake’

    Sorry to bring this up, but this has bugged me for a very long time. No more free ride for Obama's BS!
