February 18, 2017 | Biggest Political Scandal in History: Why? Blame Mainstream Media and the Likes of Bill Maher

I confess. Bill Mahr can be funny. And he certainly is successful.

But now Mahr claims Russian election influence is the worst political scandal in US history.

Is that true? Actually, Mahr is correct. But why?


Mahr says “Stop looking at the distractions and the clown show, and look at what matters. Which is, I would say, this is the worst political scandal in American history, and it’s not going away. The crime is treason. The crime is colluding with Russia to fix an American election!

The collusion charge is an unfounded, smelly pile of crap, fit for supermarket tabloids, at best.

But what about Mahr’s claim regarding the “biggest political scandal in history”.

Mahr is Correct


Because the mainstream media and all the political jackasses made it so.

Compare this Russia nonsense to the Gulf of Tonkin resolution that led to the Vietnam War. The start of the Vietnam was a pack of lies and a false flag incident that media ignored.

Also consider the absurd US ouster of Saddam Hussein based on phony charges of weapons of mass destruction.

There was no outrage or media scandal reporting even though Bush lied to the America public and Colin Powell lied to the UN. The lies cost the US trillions of dollars and led to the creation of ISIS.

Now, the media is outraged over phony charges of collusion that supposedly cost Hillary the election.

The irony in this mess is that Mahr is hugely anti-war and Hillary was the warmongers’ candidate.

There’s a scandal all right. Mahr and the mainstream media need to look in the mirror to see what the scandal is really all about: Fake news on Russia.
