 Jeff Blankfort  
Blankfort opens with brief critique of Trump’s cabinet choices then shifts to exposing CIA’s contrived allegations of Russian interference in US presidential election, ignoring fact that it was the Democratic National Committee that did the interfering, sabotaging the Sanders campaign, and he chastises alternative media for going along with mainstream media in accepting it.

He notes that rather than criticizing DNC chair Wasserman Shultz for doing that. Clinton made her honorary chair of her (happily) failed campaign.

Blankfort notes that even if Russians did the hacking, it would be chump change compared to the history of US interference in foreign elections and its overthrowing of democratically elected governments.

He also points out that both the Russians and Julian Assange had good reasons to want Clinton defeated, Russia because she was pushing for policies that would lead to war and Assange because she wanted him taken out by a drone.

He reviews history of Russian ties to Crimea and to its port of Sebastopol and accuses the mainstream media of lying about Russian aggression, Russian invasion and how it hides news that most Europeans oppose sanctions on Russia and see it as no threat. He singles out NPR for playing its assigned role of National Propaganda Radio for the intelligentsia for more than three decades, by presenting official spokesperson for US foreign policy and never its critics.

He closes with reports of Israel’s receipt of first of 50 F-35 fighters, paid for by US taxpayers and $600 million from US “defense” budget for Israel’s benefit while appropriating only $170 million for repairing Flint, Michigan’s lead tainted water supply.
