CBS, ABC Wake Up to Idea That Maybe Russia Didn’t Make Hillary Lose
Kellyanne Conway on why Trump is questioning U.S. intel
The mainstream media and the Trump Team’s Kellyanne Conway go completely crazy on live TV.
‘Don’t You Say That Again’ Kellyane Conway, CNN Chris Cuomo FULL HEATED Interview over Russia Hacks
Conway and Cuomo Get Into Transfixing War of Words Over Russia Hacks. In a meaty interview that raged on for the better part of twenty minutes this morning, CNN New Day anchor Chris Cuomo sparred with Kellyanne Conway of the Trump campaign on a wide variety of controversies, foremost of which has been the President-elect’s willingness to seemingly discredit our own intelligence community.
The senior Trump advisor took issue with the fact that talk of the “alleged” Russian hacking (as she puts it) is being conflated with why Hillary Clinton lost, a claim that Conway put at the feet of CNN itself. “Your network is doing it constantly,” she told Cuomo. At times, two continued to spar even over the basic premise of questions asked due to Conway’s effective filibustering.
“I’ll ask you a third time!” Cuomo said at one point about the October joint report from the Homeland Security Department and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence: did the intelligence community announce its findings of Russian involvement, yes or no?
What transpired was an (at times) infuriating battle between a fast-talking New Yorker and an equally abrasively stubborn and witty woman from New Jersey, both also aided by legal backgrounds. “Chris, I see you’re very passionate about this,” Conway said.
“Sure I am. Russia trying to hack during our election, being ignored by our President-elect? That’s troubling,” Cuomo shot back.
Remarkably, Conway responded. “Right. No it’s not.” She furthered at one point, “You just want to argue with me.”
“You’re ducking the obvious,” he said, “and I don’t know why.”
At one point, when the New Day anchor alleged that Trump was “sheltering Russia,” Conway defiantly shot back, “Don’t you say that again.”
The best part of the hit (in my estimation, anyway) comes when Cuomo repeatedly tried to bait Conway into simply including Russia among those foreign entities that should not hack or interfere with the United States. She refused to name the country on its own, saying instead we reject interference, “by anyone. By anyone. By anyone, Chris, by anyone. By anyone.”
At the conclusion of the interview, Alisyn Camerota quipped, “That was a calorie burner.”
CBS This Morning and ABC’s Good Morning America on Friday awoke to the concept that maybe Russia didn’t cause Hillary Clinton to lose the presidential election. CBS co-host Norah O’Donnell observed, “It’s true, actually, that the Clinton campaign spent more money in Georgia and Arizona than Wisconsin and Michigan. That’s a fact.”
Regarding Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s testimony before Congress, Thursday, GMA reporter Jon Karl allowed, “There’s nothing in the report, I’m told, that said this actually affected the outcome of the elections. Nobody in the intelligence community is suggesting this is why Donald Trump won.”
Asked by Robin Roberts if one can separate Russian mischief from the actual result, Karl responded, “You absolutely can.”
Yet, journalists weren’t trying to separate attempted hack attacks from the election results. Back on the December 13 GMA, analyst Matt Dowd painted a cloud over Trump and Russian efforts: “He already lost the popular vote we know to Hillary Clinton and there’s been questions related to the election.”
On This Week, December 18, Martha Raddatz described Russia’s efforts as generically “hacking campaign 2016.”
On CBS This Morning, O’Donnell talked to New York Times journalist David Sanger. He put the blame for confusing efforts with results on Trump:
DAVID SANGER: One of the interesting things that’s going on with the Trump campaign right now or the Trump transition is that they are confusing the facts set of whether the Russians came in, what they did, with the outcome.
He added, “I think if the Russia stayed out, you’d have exactly the same result. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the Russians didn’t try.”
A partial transcript of the CBS segment is below:
CBS This Morning 1/6/17 8:05am ET
NORAH O’DONNELL: Russia tried to interfere with the election, but to Kellyanne’s point, did they influence the outcome of the election and tip it in Donald Trump’s favor?
DAVID SANGER (NYT national security correspondent): I don’t think anybody has found any evidence that that has happened. And I think one of the interesting things that’s going on with the Trump campaign right now, or the Trump transition, is that they are confusing the facts set of whether the Russians came in, what they did, with the outcome.
SANGER: And they could easily be in a position, I think, maybe after today’s briefing, but maybe not, of saying they think the Russians were part of the group that came in, but that it still didn’t affect the outcome. I think so far they’ve conflated those two.
O’DONNELL: And that’s why I asked that question in that way for that very point. Because it is true, actually, that the Clinton campaign spent more money in Georgia and Arizona than Wisconsin and Michigan. That’s a fact.
SANGER: No, that’s right! I think if the Russia stayed out, you’d have exactly the same result. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the Russians didn’t try.
Now to give a short timeline of events leading up to today, let’s look at my youth when I was brought up in the USA and France to a family influenced by Theosophy and schooling such as Rudolf Steiner’s schools. Theosophy’s basic influence is Buddhism from Helena Blavatsky’s Russian background where the influence of Tibetan Buddhism is rife due to the Mongolian Buddhists within the Russian Federation of nations.
My family relative the Royal Count Tolstoy was also a Theosophical spiritualist and corresponded for long years with Gandhi who also was influenced by Buddhism and Theosophy.
My wife and I studied Tibetan language and culture at Paris University for five years in the mid-80s..
But when still a child, when I reached 15 years old, I was attracted to the religious life and sought to find a master to teach me meditation or yoga.
This brought me to Tibetan Buddhism which I practised for many years as a religious Buddhist starting from 1970.
In the late 90s, I sought to pass on my knowledge on Internet and particularly my research upon Kalachakra the deity-teachings which announce the Apocalypse within Tibetan Buddhism.
My work on Internet suddenly screeched to a halt though when Obama started running for president in early 2007 because I saw on Internet a school registration to Obama’s name stating his faith as Muslim: that was a signal of a red flag to me.
Indeed, that set up a red alert signal to me and during the whole of 2007 I dedicated myself solely to fighting against Obama’s election.
To achieve that, I sought to find the most powerful anti-Obama video that I could find on You Tube so as to go and find people to share my convictions with.
Through that same logic I tried to find all kinds of venues, forums, blogs, videos, articles’ comments on Internet etc…so as to criticise and block Obama but I ended up on the video with most views and most comments that deals with the birther issue: Obama Citizenship: I Invented the Internet (Ep. 6: October Surprise)
Obama Citizenship: I Invented The Internet (Ep. 6: October Surprise)
also see here for me…. Mentally ill and criminal trolls have been heckling me for years because they object to the fact I’m the Messiah and nothing they say, can change that truth because I alone reveal that the lottery in Obama’s homestate drew 666 (the Mark of the Beast aka the Number of the Antichrist) the day after his election. Wikipedia says that to troll is a pathological behaviour. Ignore the trolls: they’re crazy.
I’m a person of high spiritual realization (University Tibetan culture/language studies, 8-month meditation retreat, foremost Buddhist Kalachakra authority). My family is a royal family (our relative Count Leo Tolstoy is the highest/ most ancient royal aristocratic lineage in Russia) from Norway, and among others my grandmother’s aunt Else Werring was the Royal Norwegian Palace’s “Mistress of the Robes” (the hostess/organizer of the royal palace’s events) for 27 years, until 1985.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio has just started blasting Obama with the full force, so now Team Trump, Larry Klaymann and Orly Taitz and us all will have to sue Obama together for stealing our lives by his forged birth certificate. Follow me in revealing the Antichrist Obama and his forged birth certificate which proves his High Treason.
