Western Media Fall in Lockstep for Cheap Trump/Rubio Venezuela Aid PR Stunt


The Trump administration’s now completely overt effort to overthrow Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro had a very successful public relations effort this week, as major Western media outlets uniformly echoed its simplistic, pre-packaged claim that the Venezuelan government was heartlessly withholding foreign aid:

I don't know if FAIR is considered a reputable mainstream source on DU, but they cite such in making their case. I believe we are being seriously misled on what is going on in Venezuela. I'm 66 and I feel I've been down this rabbit hole before. I could be wrong.

I had this in Late Breaking News, but one member with a ton of posts said it should probably be in General Discussion so I moved it here, if anyone would like to discuss.

Doesn't seem to hard to figure out how Pecker got the pictures...

Bezos looks like he was set up from the start.
Girlfriend Lauren Sanchez was local news personality for Fox. Not Fox News, but Fox corporation.
Her brother, Michael Sanchez (https://heavy.com/news/2019/01/lauren-sanchez-brother-michael-sanchez/), is a huge tRump supporter who Roger Stone says is a friend of his.
We all know who Roger Stone is.
David Pecker is well known.
David Pecker is well known to do favors for Donald Trump.
Donald Trump hates Jeff Bezos and the Washington Post.

So, could Lauren Sanchez have been set up to have an affair with Jeff Bezos by Roger Stone and her brother? Could Lauren Sanchez simply have given Pecker the pictures and texts? No hacking needed? This looks like a simple Roger Stone dirty trick.

tRump's spokeswoman needs to get her story straight on the Turnberry money...

According to the story on CNN, "This story is absolutely false," Trump Organization spokeswoman, Amanda Miller told the New York Times.

"We bought Trump Turnberry without any financing and put tens of millions of dollars of our own money into the renovation, which began in 2014. At no time was any money needed to finance the purchase or the refurbishment of Trump Turnberry."

Yet according to a story on BBC.com in October 2016, tRump spokespeople claimed: In a statement, a spokesman for the Trump Organisation said: "The accounts submitted to Companies House reflect the financial year from 2015 and the first phase of the renovation, which included the clubhouse, the Wee Links pitch and putt and selected function spaces within the hotel.

"To date, the total expenditure equals around £150m, with the large majority of the work taking place through the year of 2016."

And this was October? And they were working on the tRump tower Moscow too? And a pResidential campaign? Where did all that glorious money come from? Wow!!!
