“Without Evidence”

“…In an op-ed in the Washington Post in May, former FBI director James Comey referred to Mifsud as a “Russian agent”, although he did not say why he believed that to be the case. Mueller’s report does not directly make the same allegation. For his part, Papadopoulos has repeatedly suggested, without presenting any evidence, that Mifsud was working for Western intelligence agencies in an effort to tarnish Trump…”Reuters October 9,2019/7:33AM/19 DAYS AGO October 9, 2019 / 7:33 AM / 19 days ago

This paragraph copied from a Reuters article about the mysterious Mr Mifsud, perhaps the most important figure in the Russia Trump concerns, illustrates media use of the phrase “without evidence”.

*James Comey referred to Mifsud as a “Russian agent, although he did not say why he believed that to be the case.

*Papadopoulos has repeatedly suggested, without presenting any evidence, that Mifsud was working for Western intelligence agencies in an effort to tarnish Trump.

 

The Russia Investigation

Today I read the first plausible explanation of the much vaunted/ridiculed probe of President Trump  being conducted by Mr. Mueller.

The article by Tom Burman in Saturday’s, November 10, 2018 Toronto Star seems plausible because its key reference is Mr. Trump’s declaration of bankruptcy, followed by solvency that from my media reported perspective never made sense; I thought that once you were bankrupt you were bankrupt. Mr. Trump says that his unexpected bankruptcy and sudden solvency were the result of his clever use of US bankruptcy law. But Tom Burden of the Toronto Star says that Trump was saved from bankruptcy by the Russian mafia then made President of the United States by the Russian secret service.

Shshsh, no talking.

I’ve just learned that American astronauts train in Russia and might even talk to Russians who they plan to live with in outer space where “mum’s the word”.

…Epps is returning to Houston from Russia, where she had been training to fly to the space station with a German and Russian. NASA spokeswoman Brandi Dean said Friday it was a decision by NASA, not the Russian Space Agency…

they may want to rule the world via cyber-space.

There’s all kinds of  stuff online and on Canada’s public and private 24hr TV sports, weather and traffic channels about Russians cordial relations with President Trump associates as though those associates, presumably all Republicans, have become the doorway to the U.S. government, but in all this Russia-dreading and Russia-sanctioning stuff there’s nothing about sanctioning Russia in the International Space Station; in fact considering the deluge of commentary dreading Russian contaminants infecting U.S. politics,  Russia-U.S. contacts in space and  the ISS itself seem to no longer exist.

Today Russian hacking of the U.S. presidential election, in keeping with Ms Clinton’s new book, has heightened concern over Russian meddling in U.S. elections as though until Clinton’s book no one knew that the greatest computer hackers on earth seem to have originated in Russia and the Ukraine at least that’s been my experience over the past two years. Considering the vast array of IP addresses of visitors  based in the Ukraine and Russia I’ve sometimes thought that the only way to explain this invasion  is that these visitors simply want attention, or maybe as their president Putin implied, they may want to rule the world via cyber-space.
