National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and the other neocons President Trump has foolishly brought into the White House are embarrassing, but persistent in their view of Russia as an eternal U.S. adversary. Weeks after UN Ambassador Nikki Haley was 'punk'd' by Russian pranksters Vova and Lexus, who posed as Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki on the phone to record Haley denouncing Kremlin meddling in the fictional Southeast Asian country of Binomo, McMaster claimed the Russians are now menacing -- Mexico.
Without offering any evidence or examples from South of the Border, McMaster declared in a speech to the historically Russophobic, Caucuses jihadi friendly Jamestown Foundation that Russians were interfering in the upcoming Mexican presidential elections in July. This followed an interview with taxpayer subsidized Voice of America (VOA) and former Fox News reporter Greta Van Susteren in which he accused Russia of destabilizing actions all over the world. McMaster also claimed in response to a question from the audience that the Russians had meddled via social and news media in the Catalan independence referendum from NATO member Spain. The fact that French intelligence had declared after their presidential election that they saw no evidence of Russian state sponsored hacking of the Macron campaign and the Germans likewise detected no Russian hacks related to their federal vote this past year was not mentioned by McMaster. -- JWSRead More
