On March 16th, 2021, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) released a much-hyped, much-cited new report on “Foreign Threats to the 2020 Elections.” The key conclusion:

We assess that Russian President Putin authorized, and a range of Russian government organizations conducted, influence operations aimed at denigrating President Biden’s candidacy and the Democratic Party, supporting former President Trump, [and] undermining public confidence in the electoral process…

The report added Ukrainian legislator Andrey Derkach, described as having “ties” to “Russia’s intelligence services,” and Konstantin Kilimnik, a “Russian influence agent” (whatever that means), used “prominent U.S. persons” and “media conduits” to “launder their narratives” to American audiences. The “narratives” included “misleading or unsubstantiated allegations against President Biden” (note they didn’t use the word “false”). They added a small caveat at the end: “Judgments are not intended to imply that we have proof that shows something to be a fact.”
Judgments are not intended to imply that we have proof that shows something to be a fact.
:lol:

Judgments? Remember when 'news' used to be about reporting?

Read through that article and see how much disinformation have you been fed over the last few years. Ask yourself if you truly believe that any involved in modern, *corporate*, mainstream media has the ability, the wherewithal or anything remotely resembling the *integrity* needed to assess what is fact, what is fiction and whether what some political hack tells them is either. Would they know that someone in 'intelligence' is a political hack? Would the said 'journalist' be interested in furthering a narrative from a fellow political hack? Is it appropriate Gannett Co., Inc.'s USA Today is doing 'fact checking' for Facebook, Inc.?

Anonymous sources close to the matter say... (or rather they won't. At least you'll be hearing nothing about it if they do)

I'd specifically like to know where all this over-the-top anti-Russian sentiment comes from. Not saying Russia deserves a free pass, but they also don't deserve all the lies that have been aired/published/spoken about them by American corporate news over the past few years (again, the article). Also, if you consume 'news' for judgments, go to your nearest mirror and stare, you'll find a retard staring back at you.

Today’s “cancel culture” is nothing more than McCarthyism in a woke costume. It stems from a noble goal — ending racial discrimination. Like its discredited cousin, however, it has transmogrified into something sinister and inimical to freedom. Battling racism is good and necessary; trying to suppress voices that one disagrees with is not. Woke McCarthyism goes wrong when it seeks to do the one thing that America has always sworn not to do: enforce uniformity of thought. Indeed, this principle, enshrined in the First Amendment, is so central to American national identity that it is one of the five quotes inscribed in the Jefferson Memorial: “I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”
...McCarthyism in a woke costume. It's far worse than that. When China and Russia are above the USA on the totem pole, just remember it's because they didn't give into this dumbassery.

Forgive the profanity, but you have got to be s–tting us.

First, the New York Times decides more than a year later that Hunter Biden’s business woes are worthy of a story. Then, deep in the piece, in passing, it notes that Hunter’s laptop is legitimate.
Have to wonder how long it will take all the other 'legitimate news sources' that called the story 'Russian disinformation' to admit that they're full of shit too...

“People familiar with the investigation said prosecutors had examined emails between Mr. Biden, Mr. Archer and others about Burisma and other foreign business activity,” the Times writes. “Those emails were obtained by The New York Times from a cache of files that appears to have come from a laptop abandoned by Mr. Biden in a Delaware repair shop. The email and others in the cache were authenticated by people familiar with them and with the investigation.”

Authenticated!!! You don’t say. You mean, when a newspaper actually does reporting on a topic and doesn’t just try to whitewash coverage for Joe Biden, it discovers it’s actually true?
Huhuhuhuhuhu. That's from the article I linked above. Here, again:

I'd suggest reading it. I'm gonna quote myself again, just because :think: :

Isn't the timing of the New York Times admission convenient???!!! <sarcasm>I'm sure it's just a coincidence.</sarcasm>

“Russian disinformation” finally was rendered meaningless on the eve of the 2020 election when 50 former senior intelligence officials, including John Brennan, James Clapper, Michael Hayden and Leon Panetta, signed a bogus letter designed to rescue Biden from evidence of wrongdoing, found on his son Hunter’s abandoned laptop.

The Bush and Obama administrations trusted him to investigate potential CIA abuses. The Clinton administration trusted him to investigate FBI corruption in dealings with the Boston mob. Mr. Durham, after 45 years, became untrustworthy to Democrats and their press allies only when he began investigating a matter inconvenient to Democrats and their press allies—when Trump Attorney General William Barr tasked him with reviewing the FBI’s Russia-meddling investigations.

And yet, if he’s so untrustworthy, hard to explain is the extraordinary decision by the Washington Post, based solely on a Durham indictment, to retract several of its stories lending credence to the Steele dossier, saying it no longer could stand by its own reporting.
I know, I know I quoted a piece from WaPo above. Note though, it was an opinion piece.

Seems those American "Intelligence" officials are batting 1000:

https://nypost.com/2022/03/26/hunter-bi ... e-e-mails/
Russia’s assertion that President Biden’s son Hunter was “financing . . . biological laboratories in Ukraine” was based in truth, according to e-mails reviewed by The Post.

A trove of e-mails on Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop — the existence of which was exclusively reported by The Post in October 2020 — found that he played a role in helping a California defense contractor analyze killer diseases and bioweapons in Ukraine.
US intelligence officials had earlier dismissed Russia’s messaging as war propaganda, explaining that Ukraine’s network of biological labs dedicated to pathogen research were not secret, and had publicly received funding from Washington.
Hunter Biden’s ventures raised the eyebrows of a former CIA officer.

“His father was the vice president of the United States and in charge of relations with Ukraine. So why was Hunter not only on the board of a suspect Ukrainian gas firm, but also hooked them up with a company working on bioweapons research?,” Sam Faddis told the Mail.

‘It’s an obvious Russian propaganda attempt to take advantage of this. But it doesn’t change the fact that there does seem to be something that needs to be explored here.
At least there's one honest *former* official from that community.
