ELDER PATRIOT – Thanks to the diligence of investigative reporter Aaron Klein Hillary Clinton’s ties to the CIA’s former acting director Mike Morell has been exposed.
Morell left the CIA suddenly to take a job at Beacon Global Strategies immediately after his phony excuse blaming the attacks on our embassy and compound in Benghazi on a YouTube video were proven false. Remember, UN Ambassador Susan Rice appearing on 5 Sunday news shows parroting the lie verbatim on each?
The CIA specializes in propaganda, misinformation and disinformation so this should come as a shock to no one. In fact, the CIA was established for exactly these purposes.
As we chronicled yesterday the United States Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities reported that:
“The CIA currently maintains a network of several hundred foreign individuals around the world who provide intelligence for the CIA and at times attempt to influence opinion through the use of covert propaganda. These individuals provide the CIA with direct access to a large number of newspapers and periodicals, scores of press services and news agencies, radio and television stations, commercial book publishers, and other foreign media outlets.”
The CIA was formed to twist information for political reasons though that was supposed to be limited to foreign interventions. It’s now clear at least a certain number of CIA operatives have expanded operations within America’s borders.
Beacon Global Strategies’ managing director is longtime Clinton aide Phillippe Reines. Reines served under Clinton at the State Department in a number of capacities that included Communications Advisor as well as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Strategic Communications.
It is from that platform that Morell launched the phony Russian hacking narrative for the purpose of undermining the election of Donald Trump.
Morell planted the narrative with “journalists” on the CIA payroll at the Washington Post and the New York Times and it gained traction from there.
Whether those who ran with the story after that are on the CIA’s payroll is yet to be determined but the purpose of creating a narrative that Clinton’s supporters would latch onto has been achieved. And the left-wing echo chamber began relentlessly repeating the phony narrative just as they did following the phony Benghazi narrative.
Breitbart cites these examples of just how pervasive the CIA’s control over the MSM is:
“Former Acting CIA Director Calls Russian Interference In Election ‘The Political Equivalent Of 9/11,’” reads a Huffington Post headline.
Business Insider ran a piece similarly titled, “Former acting CIA Director Michael Morell: Russian meddling in US election ‘is the political equivalent of 9/11.’”
“Ex-CIA Director: Obama Should Retaliate To Russian Election Hacks Now,” blasted a Forbes.com headline.
Idaho Democrat Frank Church who chaired the United States Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities and who the committee came to be named after warned us:
“I don’t ever want to see this country go across the bridge. I know the capacity that is there to make tyranny total in America. And we must see to it that this agency and all agencies that possess this technology operate within the law and under proper supervision so that we never cross over that abyss. That’s the abyss from which there is no return.”
It’s scary to contemplate just how close we came to crossing that abyss in the last election.
Thank God that Hillary Clinton’s and Barack Obama’s political careers have been terminated by Donald Trump. Now Trump can start the task of rebuilding Americans’ confidence in our government.
