Fusion-Linked Conspiracy Theorists in the Media Go to the Place All Conspiracy Theorists Ultimately Go: The Jews Are Behind It All

The media, while claiming Trump is anti-semitic, serves up piping-hot anti-semitic conspiracy theories of Jews working in league with RUSSIANS to undermine Christian America.

[Glenn] Simpson, as a conspiracy theorist, believes that his conspiracy theories are true. He is "shocked" because he can barely believe the scope and size of the network of possible Trump-Russia co-conspirators that his investigations uncovered. There are so many Russian names in Simpson’s testimony--Russian mobsters, Russian bankers, Russian officials, Russian businessmen, filling his imagination like the characters in a party scene from Anna Karenina. Naturally, there are Russian women, too, like the "big Trump fan in Russia" who enrolled at American University in Washington, D.C., "which I assume gets you a visa," says Simpson. "I think she's suspicious."

Why? Because, says Simpson, at some time she was working with the Russian "banker-slash-Duma member-slash-Mafia leader named Alexander Torshin who is a life member of the NRA." A story published by McClatchy claiming that the FBI was investigating whether Russian money went to the NRA to help Trump, thereby elaborating Simpson's talking points, was conveniently published a day before his testimony was released. To Simpson, what makes it obvious that the Russian businessman's NRA affiliation is fishy is that "you know, Vladimir Putin is not in favor of universal gun ownership for Russians."

By the way, the "conservative" webzine RedState heavily promoted this "Russians are infiltrating the NRA for Trump!" narrative, as of course did noted super-hrrd-core conservative site Hot Air.

What this tells Simpson is that the Russians are trying to infiltrate the NRA as well as other conservative organizations that have an important place in American society, like Chabad, the outreach arm of the Lubavitcher Hasidic movement. After all, Chabad has a presence all over the world, including Moscow, where Putin lives, and New York City, where Trump is from. The Jewish diaspora, says Simpson, "appears to be a very interesting route for the Russians."

Indeed, according to the dossier that Simpson produced, Russian intelligence, the FSB, was approaching "U.S. citizens of Russian (Jewish) origin on business trips to Russia" as potential foreign agents. "In one case," reads the dossier, "a U.S. citizen of Russian ethnicity had been visiting Moscow to attract investors in his new information technology program. The FSB clearly knew this and had offered to provide seed capital to this person in return for them being able to access and modify his IP, with a view to targeting priority foreign targets by planting a Trojan virus in the software."

So we are to assume that in exchange for cash, [American] Jews were helping to spy on America.

Is it surprising that Russiagate would incorporate Jews into its narrative? No. There was zero chance that a conspiracy theorist like Simpson would not find a role for the Jews in his grand Trump-Russia collusion narrative. A conspiracy theory without an international cabal of un-rooted cosmopolitans exerting their influence on finance and politics in whatever society they inhabit would be like writing a symphony without a string section. You could do it, but why bother? At least one publication paid full price for orchestra seats.

That publication is Politico -- Lee Smith goes on to note Politico's big gulp from Glenn-Simpson-befouled waters.

Look, all of you "conspiracy theorists" who think a secret society of FBI/DOJ members was scheming against Trump just because two members of that secret society said there was a secret society scheming against Trump are just all out to lunch.

There's a Conspiracy So Vast, all right, but it's the sort of conspiracy an Enlightened Liberal, or Enlightened Liberal Republican Keen to Cultivate the Goodwill or Liberal Democrats, have decided is rational and respectable: a team-up between RUSSIAN AGENTS and dirty rootless subversive Jews.

You know, that kind of respectable conspiracy theory.

It's a classic for a reason, I guess.

It amuses me endlessly that the same clowns who are forever chiding some conservatives for conspiracy theories (or just "conspiracy theories") are simultaneously blaring stories about RUSSIAN BOTS and RUSSIANS infiltrating the NRA in order to trick that organization into endorsing a Republican candidate for President over Hillary Clinton.

Because otherwise, who knows who the NRA might have endorsed?

A "conservative" site can and should be against conspiracy theories -- but it shouldn't be only against conspiracy theories with conservative buy-in, while happily spreading and endorsing the conspiracy theories of the liberal media.

If you think "liberal" is synonymous for "respectable" and "of a sound intellectual pedigree," perhaps you're self-identifying with the wrong party, fellas.

You guys do know that just because Adam Schiff and Dianne Feinstein float a RUSSIAN BOT conspiracy theory to the media, or Glenn Simpson floats an evidence-free TEH RUSSIANS HACKED THE NRA conspiracy theory, you're not legally required to promote it and give it credence, right?
