For a brief review of why there is so much interest in Seth Rich’s death, recall the news from August of 2016. At first glance, upon learning of Seth Rich’s death,“conspiracy theorists” couldn’t help but notice the rather obvious absurdity of how police labeled his murder a botched “robbery,” when Rich hadn’t been robbed of anything. At the time Rich’s body was discovered, he still had his wallet, money, watch, cell phone, etc. He was, however, beaten, and then shot in the back, neither of which is consistent with a typical “robbery,” and certainly not a “robbery” where nothing was taken.
In addition to the decision by police not to investigate Seth Rich’s death as murder, what really drew the attention of all the crazy “conspiracy theorists” was the fact that at the time of his murder, Rich was one of five former Clinton “associates” who had become Clinton “adversaries,” all of whom died under very mysterious circumstances over a six-week span leading up to the DNC convention. Looking at both circumstances together, it’s hard to fathom how any well-trained, logical member of law enforcement, would not find any need to investigate the potential for possible ties between the two.
When this story first broke, not only did the police see no need to investigate possible ties between the two circumstances mentioned, but when people did start asking questions, terms like “conspiracy theorist” were thrown around, and police refused to investigate further.
In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the recent discovery that Heather Podesta, sister to John Podesta (Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager), served on the board of the Washington DC Police Foundation together with the police chief; the chief who served at the time of Rich’s murder. People have also discovered that comments on Rich’s Reddit account have also been altered to better fit the narrative. And finally, rumors are swirling that the corporate higher-ups are ready to hand Hannity the pink slip very soon. More coincidences? Not likely!
It’s been close to a year since Seth Rich, the 27 year old computer expert who worked for the DNC, was murdered – shot twice in the back without anything of value taken from him. Rich was found alive and in shock before he bled out – his death ruled nothing more than a botched robbery.
Many believe Rich was a victim retaliation for being the source who provided Wikileaks with a trove of DNC emails. Rumors were fueled by the odd circumstances surrounding his death, the sudden retirement of D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier five weeks after the murder, and an email John Podesta sent to Hillary’s inner circle about making an example of a suspected leaker.
There is a paranoid, hysterical quality to the public discourse on Russia and all things Russian in today’s America. The corporate media machine and its Deep State handlers have abdicated reason and common decency in favor of raw hate and fear-mongering. We have not seen anything like it before, even in the darkest days of the Cold War.
What Michael Flynn and the Russian Ambassador REALLY Discussed
February 15, 2017 by Washington’sBlog
National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was fired by Trump. Flynn was caught discussing sanctions with the Russian ambassador even before Trump took office.
Sounds bad, right?
But Bloomberg columnist Eli Lake – the former senior national security correspondent for the Daily Beast, who covered national security and intelligence for the Washington Times, the New York Sun and UPI – notes:
One White House official with knowledge of the conversations told me that the Russian ambassador raised the sanctions to Flynn and that Flynn responded that the Trump team would be taking office in a few weeks and would review Russia policy and sanctions. That’s neither illegal nor improper.
If true, then all that happened is that the Russian ambassador asked about sanctions, and Flynn responded that he couldn’t say anything until he got marching orders from the Trump administration after it took the helm.
In other words, just more anti-Russia hysteria.
