Top Former CIA Analyst Destroys Russia Hack Theory on TV (Video - Ray McGovern)

Mark Maxwell of Independent TV Station WHDT* gave Ray McGovern, (the CIA White House daily briefer for three American presidents) enough time Thursday to expose the public push for something entirely new in U.S. history; a concerted Establishment campaign to effect a “pre-emptive coup” by flipping tomorrow’s vote of the electoral collect prevent.

Interview with Ex-CIA Analyst Ray McGovern


Ray has done a number of interviews on this subject, and – MORE IMPORTANT – America’s Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) has published an authoritative technical assessment of how unlikely it is that WikiLeaks revelations came from the Russians without NSA being able to trace sender and recipient. (All can be found on, but here is a link to the most important one, from a technical perspective.)

December 12, 2016

In just one day (Dec. 19), the Electoral College will certify the results of the presidential election.There can – and should – be honest debate on the relative merits of encouraging delegates now pledged to vote for Trump to flip their vote, or simply not to vote. However, it would be unprecedented – were this to be the result of CIA “intelligence” every bit as fraudulent as evidence on Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) that was fabricated by Ray’s former colleagues to help George W. Bush and Dick Cheney “justify” the attack on Iraq.

This is serious. Members of the Electoral College who meet Monday in state capitols have been subjected to an unparalleled media blitz blaming Russian President Vladimir Putin – without a trace of persuasive evidence – for interfering in the election so as to ensure a Trump victory. This is WMD-type BS.

But recent history shows that many Americans find it hard to do critical thinking in the midst of a blizzard of snow-jobs–the more so when the media winds from New York and Washington blow the same wet snow sticking to them from all directions. The danger is that those Electoral College delegates, who get their “news” and commentary from TV stations and cable news outlets, will be persuaded that it is their patriotic duty to un-elect someone that “everybody knows” was elected only because the Russians helped with their dirty tricks.**

The Washington Establishment (including Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, and CIA chief John Brennan) have strong incentive to keep Trump out. They have pulled out all the stops, using the corporate media to “show” that Hillary Clinton would have won absent a heavy Russian thumb on the scale. The media have seldom been more effective implementing President George W. Bush’s dictum to “catapult the propaganda.” Amidst all this, Ray and his VIPS colleagues have done everything they could to expose what is going on (see other postings on

So, again, if there is some way to get this out into the open, beyond alternative media, PLEASE DO!
