'Fresh on the heels of a report issued by Iowa State University researchers and repeated ad nauseum by mainstream corporate media, the U.S. Congress has issued its own report blaming the Russians for yet another destabilizing movement in the U.S. – opposition to fracking and pipeline projects. That’s right, if you think fracking is toxic and dangerous, you have fallen prey to Russian propaganda. If you think using eminent domain to take the homes of American citizens for the benefit of energy companies is wrong, again, you are simply repeating Russian propaganda. If you are worried that your tap water may be flammable, Russians!!
The new Congressional report entitled, “Russian Attempts To Influence Domestic Energy Markets By Exploiting Social Media,” written by the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology in the House of Representatives, thus demonstrates that the United States has descended to a level of neo-McCarthyism only paralleled by the 1950s.
The Congressional Committee report engages in a twenty-one page conspiracy theory packed with enough evidence to fit on the head of a pin. Much like the rest of the Russian meddling conspiracy theories pushed by mainstream media and the U.S. government, there isn’t a shred of credible evidence to back up the claims that the Russian government engaged in a campaign of meddling or destabilization of the United States, its elections, or anything else.
The entire narrative was invented during the course of the 2016 election by Deep State operatives and the Democratic party in order to paint Hillary Clinton’s fortunate loss as an act of aggression by a foreign state and to block any real attempt on the part of the Trump administration at rapprochement with Russia. The mouthpiece of that Deep State, the mainstream media, has thus hammered the propaganda into the minds of the American people.
The majority of the evidence the Committee uses to prove its case against Russia is the fact that Russian state funded outlet, RT reported on the documented dangers of fracking. Indeed, the RT report, an extremely small number of alleged Russian bots reposting anti-fracking information, and other Congressional reports no doubt citing other congressional reports with the same amount of information listed in the original congressional report is the extent of the US Congress’ evidence.'
