Two-month update: NBC News reports there's still no convincing evidence of Russian bounties

If you spend any time on Twitter, and we know you do, you’ll note there’s always someone who responds to any pro-Trump post by bringing up those alleged bounties on U.S. troops in Afghanistan paid for by Russia. Why isn’t the mainstream media leading every night with this story? The usual suspects — Democrats and the mainstream media — ate it up, with Speaker Nancy Pelosi calling the report “shocking” and Sen. Tammy Duckworth calling the intel “very credible.” The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway reminded us that Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff apparently had that “very credible” evidence back in February and “told no one, did nothing.” It’s been two months since the New York Times’ bombshell report, and NBC News is here to report that the top general in Afghanistan is still looking for evidence that the story’s true — he just hasn’t found any yet. 2 months after top Pentagon officials vowed to get to the bottom of whether the Russian gov't bribed Taliban to kill US service members, the commander in the region says a review of the intel has not been able to corroborate the existence of such a program — NBC News (@NBCNews) September 14, 2020 NBC News reports: “It just has not been proved to a level of certainty that satisfies me,” Gen. Frank McKenzie, commander of the U.S. Central Command, told NBC News. McKenzie oversees U.S. troops in Afghanistan. The U.S. continues to hunt for new information on the matter, he said. “We continue to look for that evidence,” the general said. “I just haven’t seen it yet. But … it’s not a closed issue.” McKenzie’s comments, reflecting a consensus view among military leaders, underscores the lack of certainty around a narrative that has been accepted as fact by Democrats and other Trump critics, including presidential nominee Joe Biden, who has cited Russian bounties in attacks on President Donald Trump. Very telling that an outlet like NBC News would call the story a “narrative.” Dems & media don't care because they got 8 weeks of BS narrative out of it. — Doug Powers (@ThePowersThatBe) September 15, 2020 So are you going to issue as many retractions as the breathless stories you had covering this fraud? Your credibility is at zero. — Fonzi (@DrunkJedi1) September 15, 2020 Even the CIA refused to confirm it when the story first came out. Everyone in intelligence knew it was bullshit. — Nasubi Brain (@PromThesis) September 14, 2020 I'm sure @SenDuckworth will have something to say about this. — God is not for profit (@fedup551) September 14, 2020 No shit… You guys latched onto this narrative in the most desperate of ways. — Patriot Covfefe (@zoochum) September 14, 2020 it's cool, nobody bought it in the first place. thanks for the stenography in the first place though – I didn't find a single spelling error! — Juan Nada (@ChefGuevara_) September 14, 2020 Ah I see, so the media lied. — Biden supporters peacefully fired at cops (@TonesHyus) September 14, 2020 Like clockwork. — Ranjit Singh (@AuthorSingh) September 15, 2020 Maybe the New York Times’ sources will come forward at last with this latest challenge to their integrity. I’ve always wondered why anyone would believe the Talaban would need money as an incentive to kill our troops. Never made sense. — doeh (@daryst1) September 15, 2020 Maybe because it's a waste of money to pay people for something they do for free. 😆 — Patrick (@xPMLx) September 14, 2020 Funny how that wasn’t the lead for the @NBCNightlyNews broadcast… — SaltyOldGoat (@SaltyOldGoat1) September 15, 2020 😂😂 We knew it was #FakeNews from the word go. How come you clowns can never figure it out until after the damage is already done? Every time. — Patrick Henningsen (@21WIRE) September 15, 2020 The damage is the point. This is my surprised face. — MiddleSide (@LTsideVsDKside) September 14, 2020 When I was in Afghanistan it was common for bounties to be placed on specific soldiers or units who pissed off the Taliban. The claim that these bounties were somehow backed by the Russian government was silly. But it gave the Dems an excuse to be pro-war to oppose Trump. — Douglas MechArthur 🇺🇸TRUMP²⁰²⁰ (@Kicksbuttson) September 14, 2020 @JoeBiden is still spewing this BS lie! — Gigi (@gigi_texan) September 14, 2020 CIA has refused to confirm it. When the Intelligence Agency that actually would know what’s going on in a particular region refuses to confirm, you should take the hint. Same thing with Russiagate & NSA. When our digital spies refuse to confirm a foreign digital crime, listen. — Nasubi Brain (@PromThesis) September 14, 2020 Another #NothingBurger sham. — Rachel AP 🇺🇸 (@Aprapl) September 14, 2020 Meaning….. another "collusion" story hyped up by a bias media as a hit piece to get their candidate voted into office but fails again. No follow up coverage though on the stories they have told that turned out "their" party was doing the "wrong doings". — walrusvision0001 (@walrusvsion0001) September 14, 2020 So, you will lead the nightly news with this, yes? NBC, MSNBC? Both? — Jim (@Ifitsthisname) September 14, 2020 Maddow will be all over this. Related: Sen. Tammy Duckworth calls intel on Russian bounties ‘very credible’; Richard Grenell calls her out — Twitchy Team (@TwitchyTeam) July 30, 2020 recent stories

'ENOUGH!' Mollie Hemingway UNLOADS on The Atlantic's Yoni Appelbaum in 1 BRUTAL tweet for pushing Vindman/Russia conspiracy BS

Man, what IS it with these Atlantic writers? Seriously. It’s as if they’re trying to annoy people so much they vote for Trump, from the piece we wrote about earlier basically threatening Americans to vote for Democrats or else to this nonsense from Yoni Appelbaum. Obnoxious, meaningless, fearmongering garbage. Take a look. "This is what the Russians have in Trump: free chicken.” — Yoni Appelbaum (@YAppelbaum) September 14, 2020 Trump is Putin’s useful idiot. They’ve been pushing this crap for four years so you’d think by NOW they’d have figured out this certain narrative is all FAIL but nope. Mollie Hemingway has had ENOUGH (like most Americans): Enough with this deranged and damaging and fact-free conspiracy theory that your magazine has peddled non-stop for years. — Mollie (@MZHemingway) September 14, 2020 Peddled nonstop. What she said. The Atlantic is a left wing rag. — Terry LEO (Ret) (@editor_wp) September 14, 2020 It's all they have left. — DeviledChickenLittle (@RealWomenVoters) September 14, 2020 I can’t think of one sign of evidence that Russia has gotten better off in the last 4 years under Trump, but can give you plenty of how they are worse off. Yet supposedly Russia controls the most powerful person on earth. — Johnny Bordelon (@johnbrdln) September 14, 2020 Another outstanding Atlantic article. 🤔 — Shawn Goe (@shawn_goe) September 14, 2020 HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA — Robert Waddell (@rmwaddelljr) September 14, 2020 This is what the Biden campaign has in The Atlantic: free campaign advertising. — Wrangler Curly 🇺🇸 (@wranglercurly) September 14, 2020 And yet no one will be held to account. The media are propagandists, and at least 50% of us knows it. — Barrett 🇺🇸✝️💙 (@barrettwiedemen) September 14, 2020 Starting to think The Atlantic is published in Moscow — VanMark Collectables (@VMCollectables) September 14, 2020 Whoa. So THEY are the real useful idiots. We KNEW IT! *snort* *** Related: WHOLE new level of cray!

'This is insane': Peter Strzok explains what he still 'believes' to be true about Trump (with ZERO pushback from the 'journalist' interviewer)

Former FBI agent Peter Strzok was on Meet the Press yesterday, and he was allowed to say what he “believes” to be true about Trump while not being pushed to back up the claim: Peter Strzok on Meet The Press: "I believed at the time in 2016, and I continue to believe, that Donald Trump is compromised by the Russians. And when I say that, I mean that they hold leverage over him that makes him incapable of placing the national interest ahead of his own." — Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) September 13, 2020 Wow, Strzok is clinging to that narrative as if it’s a life raft during a storm at sea: Might want to show your work on this one, G-man. — Mark Hemingway (@Heminator) September 14, 2020 Chuck Todd seemed in no rush to push Strzok very hard when it comes to offering actual evidence for his claim. This is insane. Either he’s an idiot, or he’s lying. — Jubal E. Harshaw (@alimhaider) September 14, 2020 Federal investigators should kinda refrain from making statements like this prefaced with "I believe" What he believes is literally irrelevant. These are Comey's men. — Larry O'Connor (@LarryOConnor) September 14, 2020 This is literally journalistic malpractice. Only helps Trump with the small handful of persuadeable voters? — Jerry Bohl, Jr. (@jr_bohl) September 14, 2020 “Journalistic malpractice” has been on heavy display these last few years. As Strzok et al. have never shown any shred of evidence for their goofball fantasies, we know they are partisan psychopaths publicly flailing somehow to save themselves. — Eric Metaxas (@ericmetaxas) September 14, 2020 He’s both. Strzok doesn’t believe any of that but he wants us to. He doesn’t want to be held accountable for any of his treachery. — Liana M (@Lianar05) September 14, 2020 It's just amazing that any discussion with Peter Strzok about ANYONE being compromised doesn't begin with his affair with Lisa Page — Will Chamberlain (@willchamberlain) September 14, 2020 The FBI was apparently full of insane people. — Eric Wright (@ericpaulwright) September 14, 2020 Peter Strzok is the FBI agent that still thinks Richard Jewell was the Olympic Park Bomber. — Extremely Careless (@Shanghaibeast) September 14, 2020 This is the prototype of a person who knows the MSM will cover for him. Are you kidding me???? We have the e-mails between others in the deep state and him. “Insurance”… — Jane Hughes,MD (@janehughesmd) September 14, 2020 I believed then and I believe now that Peter Strzok participated in a coup against the President of the United States and he belongs in prison. — Erica (@IamAlabamaCrazy) September 13, 2020 Mueller literally proved this not to be true. Peter just can't let it go. 😆🤣😂 — Jerad 🇺🇸 (@Jerad_Huep) September 14, 2020 He can’t let it go because he knows what it means if he does. recent stories
