Months of allegations about Russian US election hacking failed to produce evidence because none exists. Last month, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said he has “no doubt” Washington will interfere in next year’s presidential election. “We are used to American interference. We live with it. It’s the same as wire-tapping by US secret services,” he explained.

NYT Fake News Alleging Pro-Trump Russian Facebook Political Ads

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

Leave it to The New York Times, America’s leading establishment publication, waging war on truth-telling, operating as a quasi-official ministry of propaganda – featuring managed news misinformation, Big Lies and fake news daily. On September 6, it claimed “new evidence (sic) of Russian interference in the 2016 election (surfaced), Facebook disclos(ing) it had identified more than $100,000 worth of divisive ads on hot-button issues purchased by a shadowy Russian company linked to the Kremlin.”
..
No “shadowy Russian company” (if any exists) is linked to the Kremlin, no Russian government ads related to the 2016 election run, nothing by Moscow interfering in the process – despite fabricated claims otherwise, exposed yet unreported by The Times and other media scoundrels. The Times: “The disclosure adds to the evidence of the broad scope of the Russian influence campaign, which American intelligence agencies concluded was designed to damage Hillary Clinton and boost Donald J. Trump during the election…Multiple investigations of the Russian meddling, and the possibility that the Trump campaign somehow colluded with Russia, have cast a shadow over the first eight months of Mr. Trump’s presidency.”
..
Fact: Not a shred of evidence supports these and related spurious claims. Accusations against Russia and Vladimir Putin were fabricated. As long as Trump remains president, they’re not likely to fade away.  On September 7, Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said “(w)e have never heard of this. We know nothing about this, and we have nothing to do with these affairs.” The Kremlin should not be linked to “these Facebook stories.” The firm’s chief security officer Alex Stamos claimed about $100,000 was spent for around 3,000 ads, occurring from June 2015 to May 2017 – connected to “about 470 inauthentic accounts and Pages in violation of our policies…Our analysis suggests these accounts and Pages were affiliated with one another and likely operated out of Russia.”
..
Maybe so, maybe not. In either case, they weren’t bought by Russian officials. Facebook has no evidence suggesting it, presenting none. On Thursday, Google said it found no evidence suggesting Russia used its platform to manipulate America’s presidential election. Russophobe Senator Mark Warner jumped on the Facebook news, saying “the very social media sites that we rely on for virtually everything – our Facebooks, Googles and Twitters – it was my belief the Russians were using those sites to intervene in our elections.”

Putin is overwhelmingly popular. If he runs for reelection as expected, he’ll achieve a landslide triumph. Expected US manipulation and Western media vilification of Putin won’t prevent it.

Think!

^0Americans are the most over-entertained, uninformed people on the planet.

Ignorant about domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most.

The most important act anyone can do is stop using all mainstream media.

No exceptions whatsoever. It’s brainwash propaganda.

Toxic sludge for the mind.

Voices like this are NEVER heard on the mainstream media.

The "1%" is the global plutocracy, the billionaires.

A sociopathic, puny segment of humanity.

These people pretend to honor and defend democracy.

But are its murderers and undertakers.

Gross injustice, war, grotesque inequality is their handiwork.

And the murder of the planet

Just 8 billionaires own as much wealth as HALF of all humanity.

That's 8 guys are richer than 4 billion people.

The corporate media is their main line of defense.

That's why the best way to break their hold on us...

Is to break their media.

The corporate chokehold on political information is killing us.

Save humanity, the planet and its innocent creatures.

Increase public distrust in the mainstream media.

Defeat their power to mislead.

They lie 24/7. They sell you war. Injustice. Death. Confusion.

And they never stop.

Some more obviously than others, but they all lie.

So trust no one on the Big Media.

And beware of "entertainment shows".

Most also carry highly toxic imperialist propaganda.

Like the fungal NCIS series. Or "24", glorifying DHS.

The police state.

Or CBS Madam Secretary.

A ridiculous show, like The West Wing.

Telling us the US government is good.

That the president is good...that its cabinet is good.

That the US establishment—which they represent...

has noble aims. Rubbish!

Get the healing truth from citizens' media.

Like The Greanville Post and similar free voices.

Do your part to break the power of the mainstream media.

Defeat the presstitutes. The media felons.

Become a soldier in the battle of communications.

Which we must win.

As the ruling cliques prepare the world for nuclear war...

now it's a matter of survival!
