The objective is clear: denigrate Trump in the eyes of public opinion, put pressure on the College Electors NOT TO VOTE FOR TRUMP on December 19 because he is “sleeping with the enemy”, he is an agent of Moscow. A political crisis is in the making which will engulf the whole country.

Vladimir Putin, tagged by president Barack Obama as a “former head of the KGB” at his National Press Conference (December 16) is said to have ordered the hacking of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). ”Over a third of Republican voters approve of Vladimir Putin, the former head of the KGB. Ronald Reagan would roll over in his grave.” This statement regarding Putin’s affiliation to the KGB borders on ridicule. Obama is either ignorant or “misinformed” by his White House intelligence advisers. Putin was never a high ranking official in the Soviet era KGB.
In his final press conference of the year, outgoing President Barrack Obama has formally accused Russia of interfering in the election on behalf of Trump. This week’s Global Research News Hour attempts to assess the evidence of election rigging, the claim that Russia was involved, and what all this uncertainty may mean for the stability of the incoming administration.

On January 6, a joint congressional session will certify the results, Trump’s inauguration to follow on January 20. At the same time, nothing is certain given an underhanded campaign to deny him the office he legitimately won, the likes of which never occurred in America before – government agencies and media scoundrels behind it, a coup d’etat attempt to change the election result.

There is an astounding double standard being applied to the US presidential election result. A few weeks ago the corporate media were appalled that Donald Trump demurred on whether he would accept the vote if it went against him. It was proof of his anti-democratic, authoritarian instincts. But now he has won, the same media outlets are cheerleading the establishment’s full-frontal assault on the legitimacy of a Trump presidency.
