Coward Russians, Taliban And US Presidential Election 2020

At some moment, mainstream media outlets were promoting Osama bin Laden as a moderate rebel and an anti-Soviet fighter seeking peace.

As the United States dives deeper into the social and political crisis due to the large wave of protests and the strengthening pro-neo-liberal censorship and proapganda, US mainstream media outlets have found nothing better than pushing foward another ‘Russian collusion’ story.

This new mainstream myth (originally created by the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times) is as always based on various ‘anonymous sources’ and ‘undisclosed reports’. It argues that ‘coward Russians’ offered the Taliban bounties for killing of US and coalition troops in Afghanistan. US President Donald Trump allegedly knew about this, but did nothing.

The scale of media hysteria over these news reports reached the level when the Director of National Intelligence in the United States published an official statement saying that nothing like this happened.

In its core, anti-Trump media outlets are just using the new variant of the old fake ‘Russian collusion’ story (that evolved from ‘Trump is a puppet of Putin’ to ‘Trump allowed Russia to kill US soldiers’) in order to damage the Trump administration and the Republican position ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

Despite having no real evidence to push the story, the New York Times and other outlets continue to push it. On June 30, the NYT released a new article claiming the following (source):

“American officials intercepted electronic data showing large financial transfers from a bank account controlled by Russia’s military intelligence agency to a Taliban-linked account, evidence that supported their conclusion that Russia covertly offered bounties for killing U.S. and coalition troops in Afghanistan, according to three officials familiar with the intelligence.

Though the United States has accused Russia of providing general support to the Taliban before, analysts concluded from other intelligence that the transfers were most likely part of a bounty program that detainees described during interrogations.

Investigators also identified by name numerous Afghans in a network linked to the suspected Russian operation, the officials said — including, two of them added, a man believed to have served as an intermediary for distributing some of the funds and who is now thought to be in Russia.

The intercepts bolstered the findings gleaned from the interrogations, helping reduce an earlier disagreement among intelligence analysts and agencies over the reliability of the detainees. The disclosures further undercut White House officials’ claim that the intelligence was too uncertain to brief President Trump. In fact, the information was provided to him in his daily written brief in late February, two officials have said.

Afghan officials this week described a sequence of events that dovetailed with the account of the intelligence. They said that several businessmen who transfer money through the informal “hawala” system were arrested in Afghanistan over the past six months and were suspected of being part of a ring of middlemen who operated between the Russian intelligence agency, known as the G.R.U., and Taliban-linked militants. The businessmen were arrested in what the officials described as sweeping raids in the north of Afghanistan as well as in Kabul.

A half-million dollars was seized from the home of one of the men, added a provincial official. The New York Times had previously reported that the recovery of an unusually large amount of cash in a raid was an early piece in the puzzle that investigators put together.

The three American officials who described and confirmed details about the basis for the intelligence assessment spoke on the condition of anonymity amid swelling turmoil over the Trump administration’s failure to authorize any response to Russia’s suspected proxy targeting of American troops and playing down of the issue after it came to light four days ago.”

The new details of the story is as always based on no real evidence and do not answer to the question: Why did the Russians need to pay large amounts of cash to the Taliban that was already fighting (and as the peace deal demonstrates won) the US-led coalition there?

It is an open secret that all powers that have interests in Afghanistan (the US, China, Pakistan, Russia, the UK, Qatar etc) have contacts with the Taliban. This is needed to at least be able to be able to work on a possible peace deal there. The US even officially declared the Taliban a legit partner in the dialogue by making with the group a deal. Nonetheless, now, these contacts and transactions between some persons are used by mainstream media to fuel the hysteria about the supposedly ‘revealed’ Russian agressive actions against the US in Afghanistan.

The situation was already played by the CIA, which made a vague statement on the issue indirectly fueling the story. The intelligence agency is directly interested in fueling the myth about the foreign enemy (or enemies) in order to gain access to additional resources and funding. On top of this, top CIA members always play their own political gains.

D/CIA Statement on Impact of Unauthorized Disclosures on Force Protection (source):

Today, CIA Director Gina Haspel released the following statement:

“When developing intelligence assessments, initial tactical reports often require additional collection and validation.  In general, preliminary Force Protection information is shared throughout the national security community—and with U.S. allies—as part of our ongoing efforts to ensure the safety of coalition forces overseas.  Leaks compromise and disrupt the critical interagency work to collect, assess, and ascribe culpability.

Hostile states’ use of proxies in war zones to inflict damage on U.S. interests and troops is a constant, longstanding concern.  CIA will continue to pursue every lead; analyze the information we collect with critical, objective eyes; and brief reliable intelligence to protect U.S. forces deployed around the world.”

The US society, which has been already passing through a complicated period, once again becomes a target of propaganda and specilations designed by the pro-globalist Washington establishment to achieve their own political goals. They are fueling the anti-Russian hysteria in an attempt to damage US President Trump by once again labeling him a ‘Russian agent’ or at least a ‘weak president’.

However, even if they achieve some success, such approaches itself damage the US national interests because they turn the world superpower into a laughingstock, undermine the US negotiating positions in Afghanistan and instigate chances of a possible military confrontation with Russia. It is easy to imagine what would happen if some crazy apologist of the ‘Russia meddling’ narrative and the need of a ‘strong response’ will come to power in Washington. The World War 3 or at least a new large-scale regional military conflict will become almost inevitable.

US is a global terrorist regime and is a pathological liar.

Liberal guy

It’s a criminal corporation of the babylon conglomerate


And yet these fake news outlets will never get banned from silicon valley social media platforms for spreading such conspiracy theories. Double standards as usual.


Those are foes more fore their own countey than for others.


The fact from Trumps mouth that the US is currently offering a multi million dollar bounty for the murder or capture of President Maduro who is the freely elected president of Venezuela seems to have been been filed in the drawer labeled, US war crimes.

johnny rotten

The United States was founded on lies, the problem with the years has grown, today it needs even more lies just to hope to survive, but at some point no matter how many lies they will be able to invent, they will never be enough.

Lone Ranger

Always blame the other side with your own crimes… CIA protocol 101.

Liberal guy

Of course theses bastards are even

Liberal guy

They use even their dead agents like bin laden

Simon Ndiritu

Anglo-Zionists can really praise their tools when they want too. So, they want to tell us that Bin Laden built 800 KM road in Sudan, LOL. I cant stop laughing. It seams Osama was so good to them, they should have appointed him the queen of England or The US chair of Joint Chief of Staffs.

Russiagate 2.0,more bullshit piled on top of all the other pile of steaming bullshit


The bullshit pile is big enough now to be part of the Highly Likely mountain range in the UK.


Well, at least they are consistent. The Russians paying the Taliban to kill US military is about as believable as the US destroying poppy fields. Both stories pushed by TPTB. Anything to keep the CIA supplied with their preferred method of raising cash which is unaccountable by CONgress…as well as continuing to poison the people with lies. Another wink and nod to continued criminal activity approved by all of them. Now they have instigated the US color revolution that they have been planning for to create conditions for the NWO controlled collapse of economies wherein they will try to take control…all while using the MSM and the professed antipathy with the WH to create the chaos they will use for cover. Looks as though everything is going according to plan. The real laugh is that this is the very same tactics used around the world, yet Americans will not see it until it is far too late to stop it. Even more laughable is the idea that Trump is not part of it. When was an American leader ever elected in the last 40+ years that did not toe the line for Israel and the plan? Trump is our saviour, even though he is the most pro-Israel president we’ve ever had…and where is that going to lead? I’m beginning to wonder about every outlet that continues the Trump vs ‘them’ meme, as if what we see is for real. Was Bin Laden really anti-US (as professed by MSM and every US admin and politician)…or was he part and parcel of the manufactured excuse for where we find ourselves today? It’s not just fake news…it’s fake everything (ala Casey).

Osama bin Laden was a CIA asset, and upper management in his family’s business. Way upper management.
He also had stage IV kidney disease.
bin Laden died of Renal failure not too long after 9-11. Within a few years, he was never in Afghanistan, or Pakistan, he was on dialysis three days a week, living in a cave, leading a group of terrorists with his name is absurd. US needed a scapegoat to blame for 9-11 false flag attack to hang the long ago written “Patriot Act,” on and start their “war on terror.” Needed “terrorists” too so the Coalition would have an “enemy” to fight.

Why bin Laden’s name was used for this Western created “terrorist orgnisation” is not known, I’m sure the Zionists had their reasons. The Headcutters recruited the “terrorists”, US trained supplied armed, and paid.
US defense contractors masquerading as terrorists as needed.
Thing about the Headcutters is, they’re Zionist Khazar Atheists hiding in plain sight pretending to be Arab, and Wahabbis.
Israelis are Zionist Khazar Atheists pretending to be God’s Chosen Ones squatting on stolen land.
The City of London. Zionist Khazars pretending to be Jews are the criminal Banking Cabal that own everything. 60% of Israel, The Vatican, United Nations,, US Government is a wholly owned subsidiary of The City of London. These are the Globalist “elite” 1%.
New World Order. US Government serves the Banking Cabal exclusively, is a tyrannical totalitarian dictatorship run by Bolsheviks today.
Bolsheviks aren’t Russian they’re from Manhattan. Who lives in Manhattan ?


All of which was the point I was making.


That’s recycled cia crocksht,dates back to 2010,sound like a capitalist/socialist/zombie incorporated
blame game,except this time they are gonna go down harder than ever before in history,like as if anyone with half a brain will believe in the vile + proven utterly evil neo-liberal/tyranny corporations,
Virgin/branson shareholders to lose 94%,is this the beginning on the usa/wall st currency resett?
It seens the sharefolders of zombie corporations will pay for the scam,oh well,nwo/scams have no future!

Putin controle all Americans. He threatened the Director of US National Intelligence plus our CIA Director, a woman, to deny reliable reports about Russian bounties on exceptional Americans in Afghanistan.

America needs a NEW President like Madeleine Albright, a networker who can make America an independent and FREE nation again. With a green woman in power America can do it!


Is that the same Madeline Albright whose parents were both jewish and who changed their name to blend into the US as a Chamelian does?

Jim Allen

So stupid you’re actually funny.
