WAYNE MADSEN: Washington Post Grasps At Crazy Conspiracy Theory In Support Of Hillary Clinton

Beholding their certain demise with the defeat of Clinton, MSM frauds and shills desperately grasp at fantasies  

By Wayne Madsen

The Washington Post, the newspaper upon which the U.S. government relies to castigate "conspiracy theories," has advanced one of its own.

Putin is highly amused at MSM shenanigans 
The Post, which has a full-time reporter assigned to disparagingly report on "conspiracy theories" - the paper calls them "ideological movements" - is proffering its own kooky conspiracy theory. The theory is that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was poisoned in a plot orchestrated by Russian President Vladimir Putin acting in cahoots with Republican Party presidential nominee Donald Trump. 

The Post’s story follows Mrs. Clinton’s collapse during a September 11 memorial service at the site of the former World Trade Center in New York. 

The validation by the Post of such a libelous and unsourced story dangerously worsens already-frayed ties between Washington and Moscow. 

The Post story also cites previous unfounded charges that President Putin ordered the assassination, by radiation poisoning, of exiled former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko in 2006. After the Post article was published, other pro-Clinton websites added to the conspiracy theory laundry list the alleged poisoning in 2004 of former Ukrainian president Viktor Yushchenko. In a September 29, 2009, interview by this author with RT, it was suggested that the allegations surrounding Yushchenko’s poisoning may have been a fabrication by Kiev in an attempt to blame Russia. The video interview has since been removed from YouTube.

The aim of the neoconservative war hawks who are embedded in Clinton's campaign, as well as the Central Intelligence Agency-linked Post, is clear. President Putin is being set up by the neocons as the next Saddam Hussein, Muammar Qaddafi, and Bashar al Assad. Meanwhile, Trump is being portrayed as a modern-day Alger Hiss who owes ultimate loyalty to the Kremlin. It should be pointed out that Jeff Bezos, the owner of the Post, has a $600 million contract with the CIA to provide cloud computing services for the CIA. The deal makes The Washington Post, via interlocking close corporate links, a de facto CIA contractor.

The Post and the Clinton campaign are engaging in pure McCarthyism, which is ironic since Trump’s mentor was Roy Cohn, the late counsel for the Red-baiting junior senator from Wisconsin, Joseph McCarthy.

The Post's ridiculous article comes on the heels of it and several Democratic Party and Obama administration officials accusing Russian intelligence of being behind the computer hacking of Democratic National Committee, Democratic Senate Campaign Committee, and Hillary Clinton campaign computer systems. Russia has denied any such involvement. The Democratic National Committee, temporarily headed by Donna Brazile, a Clinton family political hack, claims it discovered Russian hackers after it conducted its own forensic examination. In reality, there are few, if any, computer technologists at the Democratic National Committee capable of making any such determination. 

The sum result of these outrageous accusations against Russia are designed to set the stage for a U.S.-Russia military confrontation during a Clinton presidency. 

The Post's "evidence" of a Putin-Trump poisoning plot is solely based on a Twitter message sent by Bennet Omalu, the Pittsburgh pathologist who discovered a number of cases of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CPE) brain injuries among National Football League players. After writing that he believes Mrs. Clinton may have been poisoned, Omalu suggested that Putin and Trump could be behind it.

Omalu's Tweet stated: "I must advice [sic] the Clinton campaign to perform toxicologic analysis of Ms. Clinton's blood. It is possible she is being poisoned." It was followed up by "I do not trust Mr. Putin and Mr. Trump. With those two all things are possible."

Omalu suggests that Clinton, who has been treated for pneumonia since September 9, never received a blood test. It is an odd claim from a doctor whose supposed expertise in the National Football League brain injury case was featured in the movie "Concussion." It is most certain that Clinton, who previously suffered a spate of coughing spells on the campaign stump, received a blood test before her diagnosis of pneumonia. 

Omalu is not the only Nigerian doctor to provide advice to Mrs. Clinton. Her own personal neurologist, who is never far from Mrs. Clinton's side during campaign events, is Nigerian-American Dr. Oladatun Okunola, who specializes in epilepsy and sleep disorders. Okunola has been seen carrying two Diazepam auto-injector syringe pens while accompanying Mrs. Clinton. Diazepam is often used for patients experiencing epileptic seizures but it can also be used for those suffering from the effects of Parkinson's disease.

What the Post did not report is that among many sub-Saharan Africans, rumor-mongering is a fervent pastime and for individuals like Omalu, Twitter is merely a modern rumor conveyance. In Africa, rumors were once passed via the "jungle telegram," word of mouth utterances passed on in village market places that spread like wild fire across large tracts of bush land. The "jungle telegram" was eventually replaced by newspapers, small radio station, and mobile phones.

Mrs. Clinton’s health has been a question mark ever since her collapse at home in early December 2012. The collapse was blamed on "dehydration" from a stomach virus. However, Mrs. Clinton’s fall resulted in a concussion and a dangerous blood clot in her brain. After her release from the hospital after a stay of between three and thirty days, Mrs. Clinton sported special anti-seizure "prism" eyeglasses. Bill Clinton said it took six months for his wife to fully recover from her concussion. Mr. Clinton also revealed that Mrs. Clinton has collapsed on a number of occasions prior to her medical episode at the 9/11 memorial service.

According to leaked emails from former Secretary of State Colin Powell and Democratic donor Jeffrey Leeds, Mrs. Clinton’s health was an issue in March 2015. Powell wrote, "On HD TV she doesn’t look good... She is working herself to death... She will turn 70 her first year in office." Leeds wrote, "Sheldon Whitehouse, who is a huge Clinton supporter, said they were both giving speeches at the same event a few months back and she could barely climb the podium steps." Whitehouse is a Democratic senator from Rhode Island.

The Post's September 12 article on a Putin-Trump plot to poison Mrs. Clinton was written by a reporter whose experience is in sports journalism. The Litvinenko charges were manufactured by Western propaganda circles. Litvinenko’s murder was undoubtedly the result of a plot by anti-Russian criminal syndicates based in Britain, Israel, Ukraine, and Poland to embarrass the Russian government.

In 2008, the Russian Federal Security Bureau announced that it was working with British law enforcement agencies on the Litvinenko investigation after it said Britain withdrew "unfounded accusations" originally leveled against Russia. The Post never mentioned this agreement in its Hillary poisoning conspiracy theory charge.

Ironically, in less than a week, the Post went from charging anyone questioning Mrs. Clinton's health as a "conspiracy theorist" to pushing its own far-out conspiracy theory about a Kremlin-Trump plot to poison Clinton. Even the Post's Chris Cilizza, who had previously accused anyone suggesting that the Clinton campaign was covering up the candidate’s health as delving into conspiracies, issued a mea culpa after Clinton’s collapse at the 9/11 memorial service. Cilizza wrote that, "talk of Clinton's health [is] no longer just the stuff of conspiracy theorists."

It was the CIA that invented the derogatory term "conspiracy theory" in order to discredit legitimate journalists and professional investigators

The Post's suggestion that the President of the Russian Federation could be involved in a plot to poison the Democratic candidate for President of the United States is the ultimate in shoddy journalism. The only "poison" in the current presidential campaign is that being spread by the Clinton campaign and its allies like the Post that wish to turn the new Cold War, originally started by the Obama administration, into a Hot War under Clinton. The United States and the world can ill-afford a Clinton presidency that would base its foreign policy on kooky conspiracy theories.

The Mainstream Media Bet The Farm On Hillary – And Lost

The CNN/MSM Clinton blitzkrieg has failed spectacularly and they will now pay the ultimate price      
By Charles Hugh Smith

The mainstream media bet the farm on Hillary Clinton, confident that their dismissal of every skeptical inquiry as a “conspiracy” would guarantee her victory. It now appears they have lost their bet. 

Let’s do something radical and be honest for a moment: the mainstream media has smoothed the path to Hillary’s coronation in countless often subtle ways.

MSM “Opinion” hacks have unleashed unrelenting attacks on legitimate inquiries with accusations of “conspiracy” and obsequious kow-towing headlines such as “Can we please stop talking about Hillary’s health?”

Suggestions that the Clinton Foundation engaged in “pay to play” during Hillary’s term as secretary of state are glossed over; yes, it looks bad, the MSM reluctantly admits, they they hurry to add that no impropriety can be proven in court.

Given the foundation is run by attorneys who obfuscate the meaning of the word “is,” do you really think they’re going to leave tracks that can make it to court?

The Democratic National Committee’s corruption was downplayed, and the mainstream media’s pathetic lack of inquiry was of a piece with old Soviet “news”: a scapegoat or two is cut out of the leadership photo, and the DNC corruption machine moves on untouched.

Consider the subtle Orwellian play of The New York Times sidebar headline after Hillary’s collapse on 9/11: “Hillary leaves 9/11 event early.” Oh really? This was the substance of what happened, that the candidate “left early”?

All through the primaries, when Hillary won the NYT et al. splashed huge headlines declaring her victory. When Bernie won, headlines read “Hillary gains ground,” not “Bernie wins another primary.” Rampant election fraud in the Democratic primaries was left uninvestigated, calling to mind the way Too Big To Fail banking fraud was left untouched by the mainstream media, which happily swallowed whole suspect official pronouncements that “subprime is contained” even as the financial system was veering into complete collapse in 2008.

There is an easy way to identify bias that we can all play at home: substitute “Sanders” or “Trump” for “Hillary” or “Clinton”. If Donald Trump collapsed on the sidewalk and had to be tossed in the van like a sack of rice, do you think the mainstream media would be bleating, “can we please stop talking about Trump’s health?” Please don’t even try to claim that oh, yes, the MSM would rush to run that headline.

Do you honestly think CBS would edit out a reference to Bernie Sander’s fainting “frequently”? Get real, people: the MSM only edits out negative stuff on Hillary.

Do you honestly think an MD who questioned Donald Trump’s health would find his show immediately taken off the air? Rather then being summarily taken out and shot for questioning the MSM’s scheduled coronation of their candidate, his show would have been pushed into prime-time and placed in rotation.

The mainstream media has failed: it has failed its sacred duty in a democracy to report the facts and let the voters decide what is or isn’t important, it has engaged in orchestrated deception, refusing to report facts that cast a shadow over their chosen candidate, it has failed to cast a skeptical eye on its chosen candidate’s actions and private accumulation of wealth, and it has attempted to block legitimate inquiries into Hillary’s wealth and health with crass, propagandistic attacks and smear campaigns against anyone who dares question Hillary’s MSM-granted “right” to be coronated president in January 2017.

Look, we understand your fear of crossing the Clintons. Their Enemies List makes Richard Nixon’s infamous Enemies List look like a squabble over seating at a church social. The body count of those who were in a position to rat-out the Clintons reminds observers of the way an astonishing number of eyewitnesses to JFK’s assassination turned up dead under mysterious circumstances.

Once again, substitute names. Would the mainstream media be so incurious if Bernie Sanders had accumulated a $100 million fortune via foreign “donations” to his foundation while he was serving as Secretary of State? If acquiring $100 million in “donations” from overseas dictators and corrupt officials is “normal” for the secretary of state, then where is John Kerry’s $100 million in “donations”?

Look, if you love Hillary to death, that’s your right. But we as a nation cannot afford to blind ourselves to blatant media bias and propagandistic suppression of legitimate inquiry, even on behalf of politicos we favor.

Correspondent Joe H. offered up an insightful question:

What happens when the status quo media turns a presidential election into a referendum regarding the media’s ability to shape public opinion and direct “purchasing” choices?

They put their ability to command advertising revenue at-risk.

Hubris convinced the media that they are king makers, even though the Deep State sees them as little more than useful idiots.

Should Trump win, the media should not be fearful of a vindictive Trump. They should be fearful of advertisers rebalancing the way the spend their advertising dollars:

–Defunding the bloated, bloviating media that bores its (few) readers and viewers with condescending tripe

–Sending those dollars to the increasingly fragmented world of the internet.

That is the same internet that has defied efforts to put-a-meter on it. That is the same internet that defies the artificial gates that permit orderly bilking (sorry, billing) and vertical integration that enables huge pay checks.

So, clearly, having planted their flag, the media simply cannot allow anybody but Hillary to win. Regardless of the costs.

But what if she loses anyway?

That’s an interesting question. The MSM bias is so painfully obvious that its remaining credibility has been squandered. That loss of credibility will usher in a banquet of consequences, perhaps including a decline in eyeballs and revenues.

Print media revenues are already tanking:

Newspapers: Fact Sheet (June 15, 2016).

Now that CNN et al. have “done everything we can to help Hillary,” what happens to their audience ratings and revenues should Hillary lose or drop out of the race for health reasons?

Dear mainstream media: you have lost your credibility because you are incapable of skeptical inquiry into your chosen candidate or official statistics and pronouncements. 

Your dismissal of skeptical inquiries as “conspiracies” or “hoaxes” is nothing but a crass repackaging of the propaganda techniques of totalitarian state media.

Dear MSM: You have forsaken your duty in a democracy and are a disgrace to investigative, unbiased journalism. You have substituted Orwellian-level propaganda for honest, skeptical journalism. We can only hope viewers and advertisers respond appropriately, i.e. turn you off.

Here’s the mainstream media’s new mantra: “skepticism is always a conspiracy or a hoax. ”The Ministry of Propaganda and the MSM are now one agency.

Even more serious inquiries await the MSM frauds that lied and shilled America into Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Libya
