wow some liberal rag on the same tier as msnbc or fox news or breitbart might be engaging in dishonest reporting? I am SHOCKED. the most patriotic american is in charge of the investigation anyway and its laughable to see people try to throw themselves in front mr.bone spurs draft dodger

Was this a 'news' article, or was I supposed to click on the link for that?

No. It's Zig Forums. What do you expect?
Of course not! Only a complete idiot would click on a TurdWater link, hoping for any edification.

Why you call yourself "kunstkrieg", Phil?
What you mean?
Obscure reference to Sun Tzu's 'Art of War' maybe?
Here's a quote for you from that treatise:
Too bad you do neither well.
Have you looked at your arms lately?
I'll try to dig up some pics of you later in case you have forgotten what you look like or you were standing sideways when you last looked in the mirror.
Jim would like to fatten you up a bit also!
While you're at it, you may wanna try fattening up those 'news' articles too..

Another smoking bullet in the saga of Russiagate or another example of misleading journalism in action? You be the judge.

The esteemed Huffington Puffington has recently broke the story wide open on the Trump-Russia ties. Yup, we finally found where it all starts. It all begins with "[a] newly unearthed New York Times Magazine report from January 28th, 2001" on Mark Burnett, the producer of The Apprentice negotiating with "none other than" Vladimir Putin.

Luckily, no more than 55 words into the article the author admits the connection "could be a mere coincidence" despite claiming it "raises new questions" about the possibility of Putin-Trump ties. Would maybe be nice if they mentioned how absolutely inconsequential this is from a legal perspective.

The "talks", far from being "unearthed" are easily accessible from the internet despite the lead of the article using language to suggest this was hidden info that had just become available. A semantic quibble, I know. Besides, "I recently unearthed a publicly available article following a Google search and then either am uninformed enough about the situation to think Russia was sanctioned at the time or am purposefully being intellectually dishonest" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

What's most relevant here is the when of what happened. 2001-2004 is when the negotiations occurred according to the New York Times magazine article, but the Magnitsky affair wouldn't occur until nearly a decade later and sanctions shortly after that. At the time though, there was nothing untoward about rapping about the possibility of turning the Russian space station Mir into a reality television show (no, seriously, that's what they said the potential deal was).

I honestly wonder how many people when they hear "the Russians" even know why there would be any more controversy over meetings with Natalia Veselnitskaya (who met with Fusion GPS before and after meeting with Trump Jr.) than there is over the (also illegal) purchasing of opposition research from Christopher Steele, a foreign national and intelligence agent.

More interesting to me than whether the guy who today "is running Trump's inaugural festivities" has to do with Russia after the Mir deal fell apart is how and why Bill Browder's Fusion GPS keeps showing up on both sides of these affairs. Then there're guys like Robert Mueller in charge of investigating Russiagate what would he have to gain from us going to war with Russia potentially? Well, banking against currently nationalized natural gas could be a winning position if we weakened the current Kremlin rule.

I started to notice some funny Cold War style reindeer games with the US playing Maverick to Putin's USSR in a revamped IRL Top Gun back around 2011-2012, but in following the story since I see it really started heating up a year or two before that.

Besides showing poor sentence structure and punctuation, this is on a /killcen/ level tier of paranoia.

Could Mr Watkins be /killcen/?

One of the key things to understand about the whole Russiagate affair is the sanctions come after the Magnitsky affair, which, by the way, is no more damning than Abu Ghraib.
Take that how you will, my point being, we're not necessarily the "good guys" here and we're certainly not much better, if any, than Russia. In other words, "it's all about politics."

A russian apologist?

Could Mr Watkins be taking money from The Russians?

I say we purge all these traitors at one.

Could Mr Watkins be the head of a satanic cult?

The Temple of Set is an occult initiatory order founded in 1975. A new religious movement and form of Western esotericism, the Temple espouses a religion known as Setianism, whose practitioners are called Setians

The Temple was established in the United States in 1975 by Michael Aquino, an American political scientist, military officer, and a high-ranking member of Anton LaVey's Church of Satan

A lot of people tend to use complicated vocabulary and jargon to mask when they don’t understand something. The problem is we only fool ourselves because we don’t know that we don’t understand. In addition, using jargon conceals our misunderstanding from those around us.

When you write out an idea from start to finish in simple language that a child can understand (tip: use only the most common words), you force yourself to understand the concept at a deeper level and simplify relationships and connections between ideas. If you struggle, you have a clear understanding of where you have some gaps. That tension is good –it heralds an opportunity to learn.

Dear Mom,

Its me, Philip… Philip your son. Yeah, THAT Philip…. I got a job. Im a reporter now.

No more AdaptoCap hustles for me. My new boss wants me to move to the Philippines and sign some sort of waiver about rectal reconstructive surgery, but he has assured me that is just a common formality in the Philippines karma especially for reporters. I feel fortunate that I found somebody to give me a helping hand and a lift up in the journalism industry.

P.S. can you please wire me some money for a flight to the Philippines if I promise to pay it back within the next 12 months?

I love you.
