Donald Trump and the “I Was Framed by my own Side” Trump Russia Defence

 “They don’t understand because the candidate never, is never involved. He’s told what to do by the campaign team.” The reporter asks if that means the candidate is just a puppet, and Nix replies simply: “Always.”

A couple of days ago, leading Trump-Russia news blog Palmer Report ran a story suggesting that Donald Trump’s new choice of attorney in the Trump-Russia investigation, will be Fox News guest Joe diGenova.

The theory, according to Palmer Report is that diGenova will push the line that Trump has been “framed by everyone from the FBI to the Department of Justice to Hillary Clinton.”

However, following the revelations of the Cambridge Analytica/Facebook data breach scandal and the willingness of Cambridge Analytica’s CEO to spill the beans on some of the company’s dirtiest campaign tricks to undercover reporters from the UK’s Channel 4 news, it sure looks like Donald Trump will now be saying he was an unwitting patsy for Cambridge Analytica’s political campaign experiments.

Here’s what CA CEO, Alexander Nix, told reporters regarding the awareness of political candidates who had retained the companies services as to exactly what it is they get up to on their clients’ behalf:

“He went on to describe how political candidates are manipulated.”

 “They don’t understand because the candidate never, is never involved. He’s told what to do by the campaign team.” The reporter asks if that means the candidate is just a puppet, and Nix replies simply: “Always.”

So now we have the prospect of Trump not only claiming he’s been framed by every entity that is investigating and protesting his presidency but also being able to claim that he was framed by his own people in order to win the election itself.

How much plausible deniability Trump can work into his defence from the Cambridge Analytica revelations remains to be seen but if the candidate is “always just a puppet,” it does lead one to ask just who the puppet master might be, and why back in 2014 Cambridge Analytica were briefing a Russian oil company, according to a further report in The Guardian:

“Energy firm Lukoil, which is now on the US sanctions list and has been used as a vehicle of government influence, saw a presentation on the firm’s work in 2014. It began with a focus on voter suppression in Nigeria, and Cambridge Analytica also discussed “micro-targeting” individuals on social media during elections.”

Quite what a Russian oil company needs to be doing with information about “voter suppression” and “micro-targeting” individuals on social media during elections, we can only currently surmise.  However, it may be of value to note that around 2014, many of the conspiracy forums on social media platforms, especially “Chemtrail” Groups and “9/11 Truth” forums became flooded by pro-Brexit propaganda and anti-immigrant right-wing memes which slowly fed their way out into the mainstream before gaining critical mass in the run-up to the Brexit vote and again for the 2016 U.S. election.

It can be noted over the same time period that readers’ comments sections of many of the main international and domestic news organs, such as the Daily Mail and Guardian, and even housewives and mothers favourite go-to website in the UK Mumsnet, to name but a few, were besieged by right-wing shitposters, with a fairly poor command of the English language.

So why might that have happened, you may be asking yourself?

Was this sudden swing in the West to embrace right-wing populism which appeared to have murky roots in many conspiracy movements not as organic as it perhaps first appeared to some?

Was there a hidden hand helping guide the Brexit and Trump social media narratives and campaigns that still hasn’t quite fully shown itself?

All we can say is don’t ask Donald Trump, as it looks like his next move will be to say that he was framed by his own side in order to win the presidency.  Which if it is the case would mean he couldn’t say he was such a “great candidate,” after all.

Just a great puppet.

Be seeing you!

Boris Johnson….Man of the Mo….oh, Wait!

Green Skinned Lizard
Green-Skinned Lizard – Was Boris Johnson an unwitting Russian patsy in the mold of David Icke?

Bombastic Boris Johnson has been a busy little bee over the last week or so.  Tubthumping the cause for British citizens who have been poisoned in the sanctuary and relative safety of Salisbury, Johnson has been our man to stand up to the Russians whilst beating the drum of national security and berating the leader of the opposition for not being tougher against those who would seek to do Britain harm.

But why, one may ask, has our Boris been so late to see the Russian threat?

Could it be that before the events of last week, Boris Johnson was content to let the Russians meddle in UK politics, as it helped him and his cronies Brexit agenda, and he thought he wouldn’t be found out?

With the revelations in the offing from a report in The Observer, that Cambridge Analytica had allegedly illegitimately obtained the profile data of up to 50 million or more individual Facebook users in order to weaponize the Facebook platform to gain advantage for the causes of the Pro-Brexit and Pro-Trump political campaigns, and Cambridge Analytica being a company who had also been in the hock of a Kremlin connected oil company (chemtrail conspiracy nonsense sponsored by…….hello Alex Jones!), maybe Johnson needed to try to give the impression that there was clear blue water between himself and the intentions of Vladimir Putin.

Alex Jones – Self-professed “ugly human centipede”

The memory of the mainstream press is notoriously impaired and it is doubtful that it could remember but a few short months ago, Johnson opining that he had seen no evidence anywhere of Russia interfering in the vote in favor of Brexit.

Let’s go back to a report in The Guardian in November 2017 which reported that, when asked about possible foreign interference in Britain, Boris Johnson replied:

“I haven’t seen a sausage.”

So we go from Johnson not being able to see a sausage, to Johnson being convinced without a doubt that the Russians attempted to murder two British citizens in Salisbury…..and he thinks he won’t be picked up on his previous treasonous lack of judgment?

The Guardian report goes on to assert:

“The revelation comes as the Observer investigation into foreign influence places him in a web of relationships between a known Russian spy, Sergey Nalobin, expelled from Britain in 2015, and Matthew Elliott, the chief executive of Vote Leave, the official Leave campaign headed by Johnson.”

Plausible deniability, and all that…..

Be seeing you!
