Confused And Frightened, The American Establishment Is Reeling

Anti-Russia-anti-Vladmir Putin fever -- the best explanation for Hillary Clinton losing establishment types can come up with that doesn't involve indicting themselves -- has reached another shrieking crescendo following news articles based on anonymous sources purporting that Russia influenced the US presidential election in favor of Donald Trump.

Just a week or so ago it was at an all time high -- at least for this one sided US instigated New Cold War we've been drug into by the Neocon dominated US foreign policy establishment and its slavishly obedient media amplifiers -- when another anonymously sourced article that was widely reprinted in the mainstream media accused much of the alternative media of being under Kremlin control.

No evidence was put forth for either case, and in the most recent one we're being told we should believe what someone said someone said the CIA said -- this is the CIA that's been caught lying time after time after time. Constitutional lawyer turned investigative news site publisher Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept breaks it down nicely here and points out the dangers of what he calls the New McCarthyism, which isn't the work of Donald Trump but of his detractors.
