    Hillary Clinton’s Absurd, McCarthyist Russian Conspiracy Theory

    Hillary Clinton’s Absurd, McCarthyist Russian Conspiracy Theory



    by JOEL B. POLLAK
    6 Sep 2016

    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton reiterated her campaign’s bizarre conspiracy theory Monday that Russia is working with Donald Trump to steal the 2016 election.

    “If you find a turtle on a fence post, it didn’t get there by accident,” she told journalists on her new campaign jet. “I think it’s quite intriguing that this activity has happened around the time Trump became the nominee.”

    Call it the new McCarthyism: from “Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy” to “Reds Under the Bed.”


    No, as Charles Lane of the Washington Post pointed out on Fox News’ Special Report later that day, the Russians are no longer communists.

    But the structure of the argument works the same way as it did when leftists were being hauled in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee.

    Trump is being asked to prove a negative — i.e. that he is not working with the Russians. It is 2016’s version of Obama’s false 2012 claims that Mitt Romney killed a man’s wife, or didn’t pay his taxes.

    The Clinton campaign’s Russia conspiracy theory ought to be rejected outright — and Clinton ought to be shamed for making it, for three basic reasons.

    1. There is not one real shred of evidence to substantiate the conspiracy theory. Clinton told reporters that Trump “urged the Russians to hack more.” She is referring to a joke Trump told during a press conference — the kind of freewheeling press conference she still refuses to have — after being hectored about Russians allegedly hacking the Democratic National Committee (DNC). That’s all she has: a joke, which is being spun by the media and the Clinton campaign into a smoking gun.

    2. The conspiracy theory overlooks Clinton’s own pro-Russia policy. Part of the conspiracy theory rests on the idea that Trump will pursue a policy of engagement with Vladimir Putin. It is a bad idea — but it is an idea first championedby Hillary Clinton herself, when she led the “reset” with Russia as Secretary of State. The result of that policy was Russian aggression in Europe and the Middle East.Pressed by ABC News’ Martha Raddatz on that point, Clinton’s running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), protested that no one in America was responsible for Russia’s actions — negating his own campaign’s argument.

    3. Clinton allowed Russia to control 20% of U.S. uranium, thanks to a Clinton Foundation donation. One of the most damning allegations to emerge from the Clinton Foundation scandal is that the Secretary of State allowed 20% of America’s uranium to be sold to a Russian company controlled by the Russian government after a timely payment to Bill Clinton for a speech and several donations to the family charity from the company’s chair. Given actual evidence of Clinton working with Vladimir Putin to undermine America’s national interest, she ought to be wary of accusing others.

    It may be true that Russia hacked the DNC, and it may even be true that Russia wants to interfere in the election on Trump’s behalf (or not).

    But presuming Trump to be conspiring with Russia is pure McCarthyism — and deserves to be called that.

    Any politician today who doesn't believe that nations all across the world are hacking into our systems as part of their normal spying and surveillance activities are .... STUPID!!

    Any politician today who won't admit that our technology is inferior and that our nation is defenseless is ...... STUPID!!

    We are sitting ducks in a cage of runaway out of control globalism. We are the target for one simple reason: Americans are the only ones who can and will stop it. They've known that for decades, they've put in play all types of schemes and plots to try to hide what they're doing in order to defeat US. That's why they hate Donald Trump because he's on to them. He's exposed what they've done to our economy, what they've done to our military, what they've done to our budget and debts, what they've done to our borders, what they've done to our citizens, workers and taxpayers.

    Americans believe in sovereign nation states. Globalists don't.

    Americans must elect Donald Trump the next President of the United States. When we claim we need him to SAVE AMERICA, this is not a talking point, this is not campaign rhetoric, it's the dire truth.

    Russians also believe in sovereign nations states. That's why we need to improve our relations with them, stop making an enemy out of a friend and work together with other countries who believe the same to end this runaway globalism, restore common sense and the rights of sovereign nations, and stop the pure madness that has beset the world. There will be no good outcome for anyone or any country, unless we stop this insanity.
