Accuracy in Media

A Special Report from the AIM Center for Investigative Journalism

Ever since I started writing critically about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s apparent lack of knowledge on the Russian military threat and the nature of the Vladimir Putin regime, various conservative websites that usually run my column have been refusing to do so. These outlets of conservative opinion seem to believe that Trump is a legitimate conservative, and that his followers can’t be offended with negative information about the candidate. Some of them had previously run articles about Vladimir Putin being a Christian statesman or anti-terrorist leader.

Major factors in this disturbing trend among the conservative media include Russian propaganda organs like RT (Russia Today) in the U.S. and the work of Russian trolls in spreading disinformation. Some of these trolls are self-described American conservatives who openly cite RT as a credible source of information.

Trump’s attitude about Russia is his Achilles heel. It shows he is so misinformed that his critics will argue that he is unfit to lead the United States. Indeed, Trump’s attitude about Russia is about the same as Hillary Clinton’s—that Vladimir Putin can be trusted to do the right thing in global affairs if he is just treated nicely by the United States. Her Russia “re-set” policy was a disaster. Nevertheless, Trump could be perceived in a race with Hillary to be even softer on the Russians than Obama and Clinton.

Trump’s bizarre views about Putin and Russia apparently stem from his desire to do business deals in the old Soviet Union and now Russia. Conservatives know enough about sleazy businessmen like Armand Hammer, a Soviet agent of influence, to be wary of doing business with Russia. Hammer helped make Al Gore’s family rich, but also backed Republicans when it suited his business interests.

Trump has yet to consummate a major deal in Russia, except for the “Miss Universe” contest in Moscow in 2013. It was at that time, however, that it was announced that he was working closely with a Russian billionaire, close to Putin, on real estate deals in Russia. A “Russian Trump Tower” was reported to be in the works. Trump could make millions of dollars doing business with the Kremlin.

An Offer He Can’t Refuse?

Doing business deals in Russia can be lucrative, but also dangerous. Bill Browder’s book on Putin’s Russia, Red Notice, exposes how Putin, his old KGB comrades, organized crime and a select group of billionaires are looting the country. Browder had no special interest or reason to come to this conclusion about Russia. The grandson of Earl Browder, former head of the Communist Party USA, he wanted to believe in the promise of a new, modern, and democratic Russia, and invested heavily in the country. But his assets were stolen and his lawyer murdered.

Yet Trump says about Putin, “I would talk to him, I would get along with him.”

Jeff Nyquist, a geopolitical analyst who has written several books on Soviet/Russian strategy, says any American businessman who travels to Russia runs the risk of being hurt or compromised. “Either Mr. Trump’s moral compass is broken,” he says, “or he doesn’t understand Russia at all.”

Garry Kasparov’s new book, Winter is Coming: Why Vladimir Putin and the Enemies of the Free World Must Be Stopped, examines the nature of the dictatorship. Kasparov fled Russia and offers an indictment of both major political parties in the U.S. regarding their treatment of Putin’s Russia. If anything, Trump’s attitude toward Russia is worse than the political establishments of both U.S. political parties, which have been driven by Big Business to give Russia special trade status. Passing Permanent Normal Trade Relations (PNTR) for Russia in 2012 was a major mistake that channeled billions of dollars into Putin’s war machine.

Regarding Putin’s endorsement of Trump, Kasparov says, “Putin always wants to sow weakness and chaos among his enemies, he sees as U.S., NATO, Europe. So consider who he in [the] West endorses & why.”

One can see this chaos and confusion in the ranks of conservatives.

Kasparov, the former chess champion, fled Russia when he was told his life would be in danger if he remained. His longtime friend and colleague, Boris Nemtsov, stayed in Russia, to organize politically against Putin. He was murdered in cold blood in the middle of Moscow on February 27, 2015.

I had covered a Nemtsov news conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. back in January of 2014, when Nemtsov helped release a report on corruption in the Russian Olympics. Money was stolen to benefit Putin and his comrades. This is how “business” is conducted in Russia today. If you expose it, you run the risk of being murdered.

Trump’s campaign statements suggest he thinks he can work with and trust the Russians, and that he is flattered by Putin’s attention. Shockingly, Jeffrey Lord, a contributing editor to The American Spectator, appeared as a CNN contributor and Trump supporter to defend these and other statements from Trump. Trump is not the “Winston Churchill of our time,” as conservative radio host Michael Savage described him.

Giving him the benefit of the doubt, Trump may go down in history as the biggest Russian dupe of all time. Yet he is the GOP frontrunner for president.

Pro-Trump Media

As the endorsements of Trump from Lord and Savage suggest, Trump enjoys support from various organs of the conservative media. The support stems from favorable coverage on sites such as Breitbart, Newsmax and the Drudge Report, and from such personalities as Dick Morris, the former Fox News commentator, and Alex Jones. Some writers, advertisers and articles on these sites have bought into the notion that Trump is a conservative and that Putin is a conservative as well. Those who have abandoned the liberal media have frequently turned to these and other outlets for their news and information.

It’s a fact that Trump’s assault on political correctness has won many admirers. That’s why he’s at the top of the polls and has such political appeal. He said things that people were only thinking. Media attacks only made him more popular. But when he expressed ignorance about the nuclear triad during a presidential debate, and then defended Putin against charges that he killed dissidents, it should have been apparent that Trump was no conservative, and that he was only playing one on TV.  Unlike Reagan, he has no coherent ideology. His soft spot for Russia, however, stands out as strange.

The complaints from the liberal-left media about Trump can mostly be dismissed out of hand. They are offended by his conservative-sounding statements and positions. The real problem is the influence of Russian propaganda on the right and the willingness of many to ignore it.

Looking at U.S. politics from Putin’s point of view, he must think that playing to Trump’s ego is a geopolitical winner. If Trump doesn’t get the Republican nomination and instead runs as a third party candidate, he would split the conservative vote and Hillary Clinton would coast into the White House. She would continue the soft-on-Putin policies characterized by the Obama/Clinton Russian “re-set” that set the stage for Putin’s aggression in Ukraine and Syria.

Putin’s interest is to prevent the foreign policy conservatives who understand the nature of his regime from gaining power in the United States. Any legitimate American conservative who opposes Putin and exposes his network of paid and unpaid assets is attacked by his propaganda channel Russia Today and the Russian trolls on the Internet.

Of particular interest in the Kasparov book is that he accepts the evidence that Putin’s comrades in the FSB—the successor to the KGB—carried out the 1999 Moscow apartment bombings that were blamed on Islamists and used to justify Putin’s war in Chechnya. A book about this, Blowing Up Russia, got the author, a former KGB agent, murdered.

This case is important because Trump’s defenders argue that Trump is right about radical Islam, and that Putin is right about that threat as well. Trump has welcomed Russian military strikes in Syria, strikes that Russia says are targeting the Islamic State or ISIS. According to Trump, the U.S. and Russia should see the conflict in the Middle East in the same way.

Russian Disinformation

But what if that view stems from propaganda and disinformation? What if there is a Russian role in global Islamic terrorism, just as there was a Soviet role in the creation of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and its rise to power in the Middle East?

When ISIS was blamed for the destruction of a Russian plane flying out of Egypt, many thought it was clear that Russia was at war with ISIS, and that Russia and the U.S. could work together against the common Islamic threat. However, there seemed to be conflicting accounts of how the plane was brought down. Andrew Malone of the British Daily Mail has now offered the view of a former KGB officer that the Russian FSB brought the plane down by smuggling a bomb onboard, in order “not only to obtain worldwide sympathy at a time when Russia was being treated as a pariah because of its aggression towards Ukraine, but also to gain support for its ostensible belligerence against ISIS…”

Malone writes about the “ostensible belligerence against ISIS” because the rebel groups in Syria being attacked by Putin are “sworn enemies of his ally President al-Assad,” and not necessarily ISIS. Assad is a long-time Soviet/Russian client.

Malone’s source is Boris Karpichkov, a former spy with the KGB “who now lives under a new identity with his wife and family at a secret location in England after fleeing here in fear for his life.” Karpichkov says he still has sources inside Russia’s intelligence services.

The purpose of the plot to bring down the Russian plane was to get “at least silent international approval” for “massive military operations against Assad’s enemies under the guise of a campaign against the IS terrorists blamed for bombing the Russian passenger jet; and to bolster Russia’s multi-billion-pound weapons business with the Middle East.”

One has to admit that the plot has worked to some extent, although U.S. military officials have been among those pointing out that Russian military strikes in Syria have not been targeting ISIS. U.S. military officials know where the bombs are falling.

Analyst Jeff Nyquist said he tends to believe the Karpichkov theory about the downing of the Russian plane. He told Accuracy in Media, “Putin and his comrades have done this before, and we know how they play the game. ISIS is actually led by Russian agents according to an FSB defector in Ukraine. How could the FSB not know the bomb attack on the plane was being arranged? They either allowed or were behind it.” The FSB defector in Ukraine has explained how former members of Saddam Hussein’s security and military services were recruited to form the core of ISIS.

The Stone Zone

Trump’s bizarre views about Russia may reflect information he has received from Roger Stone, a former Trump adviser who wrote a book absolving the Russians and Cubans of playing a role in Lee Harvey Oswald’s assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Stone’s book, heavily promoted by RT and the Voice of Russia, blamed then-Vice President Lyndon Johnson for JFK’s murder, using a KGB operative named Joachim Joesten as a source. Joesten was assigned by the Soviet KGB to divert attention from the communist connections of JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, a member of the Fair Play for Cuba Committee who was an avid consumer of communist publications such as The Worker and The Militant.

Stone has started a pro-Trump Super PAC called the Committee to Restore America’s Greatness. He says, “I have been friends and worked with Donald Trump for 37 years, since we met in Ronald Reagan’s presidential campaign. I chaired Trump’s Presidential Exploratory Committee in 2000 and wanted him to challenge Mitt Romney in 2012.” For all his faults, Romney had gotten Russia right, noting during the 2012 campaign that Putin was the number one geopolitical threat to the United States and the West. Obama had dismissed Romney as a throwback to the Cold War.

Stone’s main targets appear to be Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and “The Establishment,” a term that is apparently meant to refer to candidates other than Trump. But any other Republican presidential candidate with a realistic view of Russia is a possible threat to Trump—and to Putin.

Trump’s appearance on the Alex Jones show further demonstrates the candidate’s disregard for reality and truth. Jones is a notorious mouthpiece for Russian propaganda, including the 9/11 “inside job” theory about the terrorist attacks in the United States. Jones runs propaganda from RT, and even the Voice of Russia, on a regular basis. He defended Russia’s invasion of Georgia in 2008.

We said at the time of his appearance on Jones’ program that Trump was apparently not aware that Jones promotes claims that actual terrorist attacks, such as the Boston Marathon bombings carried out by two Muslims from Russia, were “false flags” perpetrated by U.S. police and law enforcement agencies. His website ran a “Voice of Russia” story claiming the dead and wounded were actors plastered with fake blood. Jones has been described as an agent provocateur in conservative ranks. His purpose is to confuse and demoralize.

A Pattern Emerges

With the business dealings in Moscow, and the Roger Stone and Alex Jones associations, a pattern has emerged in the case of Trump, suggesting that he is indeed the Kremlin’s candidate and that his purpose is to disrupt and sow confusion in the Republican Party and conservative ranks. On NBC’s “Meet the Press,” former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul noted, “Vladimir Putin does only things that are in Russia’s national interest. So for him to be endorsing Mr. Trump, that’s because he thinks it’s in Russia’s national interest for Mr. Trump to be the leader in the United States.”

It’s impossible to argue with this assessment. The conservative websites promoting Trump do not want to admit they were wrong about the candidate, but the truth dictates that they engage in some immediate soul-searching before voting takes place and real damage is done.

If these sources of information fail to do their jobs, it may ultimately be up to Trump’s political opponents in the race to bring up these issues.

So far, only Governor John Kasich (R-OH) has come forward in a dramatic way, with a hilarious website touting the ticket of Trump-Putin 2016. It says, “Don’t mind the constitutional problems of our candidacy. This campaign will be terrific! Huge! A merger of two great powers!”

The Kasich campaign has hit hard times because he has not been sounding conservative enough. The attack on Trump-Putin is funny, but the purpose of a presidential campaign is not to be entertaining. The purpose of journalism, on the other hand, is to uncover the facts about the candidates. Trump’s Russian connections are just waiting to be examined. It’s time to take a look at those behind the curtain of the Trump campaign.

    Is this a Russian tactic to make sure he’s not elected? Trump’s got guts, he’s not a wuss like our present so called president. Or is it a game by Trump, the art of the deal? Hard to say. I don’t like the man but will vote for him in a nano-second. Am done with dynasties, rinokraps, and that ilk. What concerns me, too, is conservative news acting like the MSM, censoring opinions.

  • Ted

    The biggest mistake this country has ever made in the foreign policy arena is it’s failure to cultivate a working alliance with Russia after the USSR failed.

    If the U.S. “made nice” with Germany and Japan after WWII … it shoulda/coulda made nice with Russia after the Cold War!

    If Trump can cozy up to Putin and begin to remediate the problem … more power to him! I’d vote for him on that single issue alone!

  • AndRebecca

    Worried about censoring opinions from conservative news. What else do you worry about?

  • AndRebecca

    We’ve done all sorts of things for Russia. They wouldn’t have a country at all if it weren’t for American business. Communists are still our enemy. What part of “We will bury you” don’t you understand?

  • Gz7

    I worry about Kincaid. He goes from staunch conservative to clueless in his articles. This is the last article I read from him. I don’t need his opinion to make up my mind about anything. He’s unreliable.

  • RMThoughts

    Partisans neocon pundits like Kincaid sell us an illusion that a conservative is a supporter of the status quo. They often believe that any politician who proclaims they are a champion of a GOP regime are conservative.
    While it is difficult to speak well of any Democrat over the last century, it is becoming exceedingly routine to reject Republican party loyalists as just camouflaged clones for the exact same socialist policies dressed in different clothing.

    The establishment GOP, to whatever extent it has social views, holds mostly a left-leaning ones. They court the gay and feminist perspectives; they express “liberal” views on all immigration-related issues; and they call for getting tough with “the Russian thug” fighting our ISIS proxies; standing up “for human rights” (read regime change) throughout the world by “projecting American strength”, an unconditional endorsement of the Israeli Ethno-Fascist Zionism is de rigueur among establishment Republicans.

    The reason for panic and hatred has far less to do with Trump’s actual positions than with the difficulty that the neoconservatives and the GOP establishment would have in managing him as a candidate or as president. He pays for his campaign out of his considerable fortune and makes fun of his opponents “for belonging to other people.” Trump may be on the verge of destroying the Republican Party as we know and detest.

  • RMThoughts

    Our neocon policy teams flooded post-Soviet Russia with “Harvard boys” to put Russia onto its back on its feet as an energy exporting economy as they shared in the plundering of Russia’s assets by helping a few friendly Jewish “oligarchs” become billionaires in a Western imposed crony capitalism.

    We all know Russia shouldn’t even exist. After all with a thousand year Christian history, it’s not really an actual country like the United States. It is nothing more than an conglomerated landmass blocking our path into Eurasian market opportunities.

    Suppose for the sake of argument, Russians didn’t actually enjoy having their country and resources pack raped by Harvard educated western financiers and handed over to a band oligarchs for an entire decade with its capital exported to banks on Wall Street and The City. It’s entirely possible they even disliked it, and it put them in a bad mood.

  • AndRebecca

    According to V.I Lenin and others, the dictators of Russia have appreciated what the Americans have done over the years to build what Russia has, in the way of manufacturing, farming, etc. They have appreciated the “Friends of Russia” providing food for their people so they could spend money on weapons to take over the world. There have been times when our government has sent wheat, to keep them all from starving, while they were calling us every name in the book and standing against us. They went into China and China became a starving mess, until we bailed them out.

  • RMThoughts

    Russia is supposed to be the Soviet Union but they have more protection for property than Washington DC gives me. They don’t confiscate my wages and turn me into a slave working for the benefit of a leisure welfare call as does my government.

    Russia has a 13% flat tax, conservatives would love one just like it, I would love to have one just
    like it but I can’t because my government is more Socialist.

    Russia mandates Christian education, I wish we did instead of persecuting Christians. Russia
    doesn’t allow homosexual propadanda, we get it shoved in our faces 24/7.

    Russia fights Islamic Jihadist, we train and fund them.

    Putin doesn’t flood my country with illegals that destroy my vote, take my job and consume public resources, but my government does.

  • hadit

    What an impressive comparison. I’m surprised about Christian education being taught…is that government regulated? It seems we have switched positions…we are being strangled with regulations, taxes, big brother. I just heard where the little bakery business owners, a young married couple with a family paid off the $135,000 for not baking a lesbian couple a cake. Business owners will be walking on eggs. Hope Trump gets in to put a hammer to this nonsense.

  • hadit

    Yes, please vote for Trump. Hillary in the W.H. would create such a clamor for the exits of this country. Mark Steyn just talked about Bill going to Epstein’s island where he has all these young girls, and then Monica came back to mind. I would head to Canada if those 2 did a replay.. Nobody is perfect, but I believe it’s real with Trump. He doesn’t need the garbage he’s going thru….look at his wonderful life…he’s driven, and that’s what we need. We still have 388 days..don’t know if we’ll make it.

  • RMThoughts

    In Russia, Orthodox Christian education is mandatory in all public schools. Russia has rebuilt 22 thousand Churches and monasteries destroyed by the Communist including Christ Savior Cathedral inside the walls of the Kremlin. It has chaplaincies in all military units. It even has orthodox chapels built into its newest ships and submarines.

    Putin’s Russia is now a nation that accepts God as a part of its national life and history with a president who staunchly defends “traditional values”; Obama’s America is a God-forsaken wasteland, morally bankrupt and slipping rapidly into “chaotic darkness.”

    As Putin said in a recent keynote speech: “Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values. Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan. This is the path to degradation.”

  • AndRebecca

    You sure have a different version of Russia than the people I know who have lived there. And, even what Russian communists themselves have said about the place, and the stats on Russia. You are a propagandist. You remind me of the dictators at the U.N. when they said Cuba has a better health care system than the United States. What a joke. We have lots of enemies in the world, thanks to Russia. The Communist takeover, you know. And it’s happening in D.C. So, if you don’t like D.C. now, you should like it better when Ocommie gets through with it.

  • Taurnil Oronar

    Nice to read Mr. Kincaid believes he has threaded his way through the propaganda, or maybe not.

  • RMThoughts

    Everyone who has an opinion on anything is a “propagandist”, even you are one. Why don’t you tell us what the “russian communist” are telling us “about the place”.

  • Steven Barrett

    I can’t even believe Putin’s taking his own comments very seriously. C’mon guys let’s get real. He’s having a big laugh at Trump’s short and long range expense if the latter’s dumb enough to even take what he’s hearing from Moscow seriously. Perhaps both men are having the biggest Christmas time laugh at the expense of the media on both sides of the Artic Ocean. Laugh it off guys. Laugh it off. Poor Cliff, another long screed at his expense. Time that could’ve been better spent actually reading up on what Pope Francis is saying so he won’t make more boneheaded comments about his favorite Pope, whom I think he fears more than Putin and Trump put together. After all, Francis can get to one’s social and moral conscience while the other two together can at best tickle Cliff’s curiosity and our funnybones if we really think about it.

  • HikerJohn316

    Wasn’t Armmand Hammer a pro-Soviet businessman who made millions selling pencils and other products to Russia?

  • Marla Hughes

    The cool thing about Google search is that you can pull up people’s comment history even if they try to hide it. RM sounds like a white nationalist aka neoNazi. They tend to be inspired by aggressively autocratic white guys.

  • reggie

    Is there anyone else?

  • reggie

    Well let’s see. My left big toe hurts, it worries me a bit too.

  • hadit


  • hadit

    I would be surprised if many people knew of this transformation of Russia. Is it some kind of secret, so why do you think MSM doesn’t ever bring this up when discussing Putin? Your last statement confused me , but I see you are making a comparison. Are you from Russia?

  • AndRebecca

    I can tell you have a big brain.

  • AndRebecca

    Well, Obama is telling us he is going to grab our guns next. Does that help you? As for Russian Communists, you would have to read only a few of their thousands of books they’ve published over the years, like I have, to get the picture.

  • AndRebecca

    That could be it. The neo-Nazi sites are pro-Putin! Some of the libertarian sites are as well. Thanks.

  • RMThoughts

    In 2014 Putin signed legislation legalizing open carry in Russia nationwide and urged Americans not to give up our guns.

    Communism and atheistic materialism can tumbling down in dispute Anyone who thinks that Putin is remaking the Soviet Union is a retrograde fool. The Russian Empire based on Orthodoxy yes, the Soviet Union. Please, your reading too many Trotskyite neocons globalist like Kincaid. …. America is the vector of the revolutionary movement in our day.

  • reggie

    Why thank you Rebecca, I can tell that you do too. For the rest of you who may not be quite as intelligent as Rebecca, it’s a lovely game of sarcasm.

  • AndRebecca

    Now, Kincaid is a Trotskyite. You are a communist and that’s why you like Putin. I had it right the first time.

  • RMThoughts

    Do you even know what a Troskyite is?

  • AndRebecca

    What kind of a question is that?

  • RMThoughts

    It is kind of key to understanding the neocons like Kincaid

  • AndRebecca

    What causes you to think Kincaid is a neo-con? And don’t say “because he hates Trump.”

  • RMThoughts

    Everything he misrepresents is the neocon line, he only quotes neocons, he protects the NWO globalism and advocates the Wolfowitz doctrine.

  • AndRebecca

    I’ve been reading Kincaid for a couple of years now and haven’t gotten that out of him. He’s more worried about the kids being brainwashed by the communists in the schools, and people like Obama’s buddy Bill Ayers, the Leftie criminal involved in education. The Left advances NWO globalism and their buddies like George Soros and Bill Gates and Zuckerberg. U.N. edicts are about NWO globalism. How does Kincaid fit into that?

  • The Kulak

    AndRebecca – cross dressing sock puppetry by Cliff Kincaid? Sure seems to be the same writing style no facts or logic or acknowledgement of neocons just ‘Russia – bad, still communist Jeff Nyquist blah blah blah’. I don’t have to like Trump to enjoy watching him make the neocons who’ve taken over the GOP since Reagan left squirm. Especially if he starts hammering them on their Saudi and Qatari payoffs through ‘think tanks’ like the Brookings Doha center, what’s Cliff gonna do? Have a massive cognitive dissonance attack? Or do a 180 and decide Al-Jazeera, the Saudis and ‘moderate’ head choppers in Syria like Jabhat al-Nusra Ahrar al Sham aka Al-Qaeda are good because Russia or the ‘Russian candidate’ who’s never met Putin is attacking them and their neocon mouthpieces?

    Hell Cliff aka Rebecca even the Israelis are throwing in the towel on opposing Putin in Syria — so long as they get to take out Hezbollah leaders when they feel like it, they leave the Russian military and their S400 batteries alone.

  • The Kulak

    Meaning ‘I’ve been reading myself’ since AndRebecca is clearly a bad sock for Cliff. Who’s a pudgy slob who never actually faces questions on camera at CPAC about shilling for the NSA — which spied on numerous members of Congress according to the WSJ, though it was for a good cause of stopping them from blocking the Iran deal so maybe Cliff can have a cog disso attack on that one too as the superpatriots at Ft Meade once again obeyed Barry’s orders but at least kept good records of ‘US person A’ aka members of Congress who are pro-Israel for CYA. Cliff has never been called on camera over his trashing the Pauls as Commie/Russian agents, and generally making a neocon jackass of himself. The closest time I ever heard was when Rebecca excuse me Cliff was on the Rick Wiles show and Rick chided him over his blind faith in the super patriots at the top of the NSA never obeying Obama’s criminal orders to spy on patriots and in the case of the recent WSJ story, pro-Israel Congressmen Cliff supported. So now who looks like a naive fool, Rick or Cliff?

  • The Kulak

    Cliff is unreliable because AIM is all he’s ever done with himself and he’s got bill$ to pay. Next he’ll tell you that neocons who did Saudi Arabia and Qatar’s bidding and pedaled fantasies about ‘moderate’ Syrian rebels being attacked by the evil Rooskies in Syria are super patriots being persecuted by The Donald. And he’ll back the Al-Jazeera channel he was denouncing as ‘jihad TV’ just a few years ago, as long as they say bad stuff about the Russians and how they, and not Saudi Arabia, Qatar or NATO ally Turkey, are behind ISIS. Because looking at a map of ISIS/Al-Qaeda in Syria supply lines up the Syrian Euphrates valley to Turkey would be too obvious for subtle types like Cliff or Jeff Nyquist.

    Who knows? Maybe Cliff will side with the pro-Israel people being tapped by the big bad NSA, the same NSA which he was defending from ‘communist’ libertarian attack six months ago. Cliff’s writing is in short a hot mess of cognitive dissonance and idiocy. Anything and everything for a buck and too keep the most gullible conservatives on the long gone ‘Reagan conservative’ plantation, which no longer exists.

  • AndRebecca

    So you hate Cliff because you are a communist. You are anti-American and therefore anti-Cliff. Not hard to figure out. And, like a dumb Marxist, you are short on judgment and can’t figure out the difference between me and Cliff. What else is new? I love the Marxist (Jew) hatred for Jews you Lefties have. It is truly amazing…satanic, even.

  • AndRebecca

    Well, josh darn, you mean NSA actually spies on the commies in congress? How refreshing! I wouldn’t have believed it! And, the WSJ is pro-commie! Who knew? You lost me on the Rick Wiles show…I have no idea what you are trying to say beyond that point. Could you clarify?

  • terry1956

    The Chinese Communist Party also has their official churches and every one else including those actual practicing denominations who disagrees with the official church, CCP member priest and preachers has church in homes which often get raided by the CCP.
    So the Russian government does less in having only one official church with those who disagree with the friends of Putin including Orthodox having church in homes which often gets raided by Putin”s thugs.
    Similar thing was happen in the Ukraine a few years ago but the government had two official Church’s the Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church depending on which section of the nation you lived in, all other denominations and the home church’s of Orthodox and Roman Catholic were persecuted in the Ukraine.

  • The Kulak

    Hatred of Jews? Well at least like any well trained .gov psyops troll, you sure know how to shout, ‘Anti-semite’ when nobody even said a bad word about Jews, only that the Israelis aren’t dumb and have cut a deal with Putin to let him bomb targets in Syria right next to the Golan Heights (I know Cliff, it must crush you to know that the Israelis don’t consider Vlad to be a commie and their mortal enemy after all). Keep up the cross dressing gender sock puppetry Cliff. You’re a really bad actor.

  • The Kulak

    Yes Cliff I mean AndRebecca, those ‘Commies’ in Congress are now the members who opposed Obama’s Iran deal, that NSA was justified in spying on to? No cognitive dissonance at all there Cliff that your super patriotic NSA officers eagerly obeyed Barry the Commie in Chief’s orders to spy on pro-Israel Congressmen and their chats with your hero Bibi (not that I think conversations with a foreign leader are protected by the 4th Amendment)?

    You can’t even keep your own pathetic talking points straight you silly fat old guy. Go brag about how Marco Rubio can fill a decent sized Quizno’s with supporters rather than a whole arena like Trump in Mississippi.

  • The Kulak

    I wonder if Cliff will bring on his South Carolina ‘aw shucks NSA would never spy domestically and illegally for Barry the Commie in Chief’ or Fired by USNWC Prof. Junk Pics John Schindler to explain away this:

    Maybe Cliff’s NSA contractor payola guy hasn’t paid him to shill for Ft. Meade some more yet?

  • reggie

    Ah, in some famous words “What does it matter now”.

  • AndRebecca

    What do you think a neo-con is? Neocons started the Arab Spring and it is to continue into Syria…I’m not sure if Cliff approved of that. Vlad is a commie. Even the commies in China are getting “spirituality,” to go with their new found “capitalism”…The original Zionists were communist atheist Jews. Remember the kibbutz? And, they wanted a two state solution form the beginning. The old coms have been siding with the PLO and all the terrorists in the M.E. lately.

  • AndRebecca

    The commies and socialists are in the Democratic Party. And, they are fine with what Obama does. They like the Iran deal and don’t support Israel.

  • Asome1

    Perhaps, Russia stopped being communist after not being bailed them out, but they still have their liberal fascist boots in the Middle East and their special neo-fascist interpretation of the Koran. And seems silent on Korean business to China. Let us be silent on that too.

    And why is Cruz so smug? He is too smug to make a good president. Seriously, we still have the congress.

  • Asome1

    Who needs a CFR (aka MSM) think telling them what to think?

  • A.Alexander

    This chattering “Accuracy” works for Trump, as its werbose accusations are based on empty place. Any thinking human knows nothing about Trump, owing to evidently stuped propaganda against him. Let us discuss something not so stupid.
