As the Russian collusion hoax continues to collapse with the Durham probe, news networks that were once preoccupied with coverage of Russia are now running from it.
According to NewsBusters, “On Thursday, Special Prosecutor John Durham brought Russian national Igor Danchenko — who was the primary source in the infamous and debunked dossier — into court on charges of lying to the FBI with his information.”
Reports are nonexistent of Danchenko’s indictment on the networks that devoted themselves to covering Russian collusion during the early years of Trump’s presidency. NewsBusters reports, “The ABC, CBS, NBC evening news programs (January 20, 2017 – July 20, 2019) alone devoted an astonishing 2,634 minutes to it.”
Journalist Glenn Greenwald appeared on FNC’s MediaBuzz with host Howard Kurtz to detail how the news of Danchenko’s indictment demolishes any trace of trustworthiness of the media.
“News networks that were once preoccupied with coverage of Russia are now running from it…”
“The overall narrative of the Trump presidency that came from the liberal sector of the media is proving to be a fraud and not an innocent one but a deliberate and coordinated one that came from a union between Clinton operatives, the security state services, the FBI and the CIA, and the corporate media. Those are the guilty parties that drowned our politics in this fraud for three or four years,” Greenwald said.
Greenwald explains that the media is trying to pass this embarrassing mark on their record by using a strategy that pretends “the Steele dossier [was] covered only by cable crazies like Rachel Maddow and people like that, they’re kind of trying to scapegoat her and pretend that the real serious journalistic institutions like The New York Times and the Post that gave Pulitzers or were given Pulitzers for this story were actually serious journalists who didn’t fall for any of this.”
Greenwald adds that there was “one little sentence buried in the Washington Post article, ‘Oh this calls into question some of our past reporting.’ I guess it’s better than nothing but it’s kind of shocking that that’s all they are going to do in passing — is just to say ‘Yeah, I guess it maybe actually shows that much of what we said was wrong.’”
The false narrative of the Steele dossier was peddled incessantly by the media who had their goal set on destroying President Trump and his administration.

More Deadly Fentanyl Has Been Seized at U.S. Borders Than Heroin For First Time in History
History has been made in the worst of ways. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data shows 2021 was the first time in American history that federal law enforcement seized more of the deadly drug fentanyl than heroin at our borders.
Data shows 11,200 pounds of fentanyl was seized in 2021 compared to 5,400 pounds of heroin. The numbers were double that of 2020’s fentanyl seizures. 319,447 pounds of marijuana, 190,861 pounds of methamphetamine, 97,638 pounds of cocaine and 10,848 pounds of ketamine were also seized in 2021.
Taking the 2022 fiscal year into account, 2,158 pounds of fentanyl has already been seized. 277 pounds of heroin have also been seized in the same time period. The Washington Examiner reports:
Not only were fentanyl seizures at the highest level ever recorded, but fentanyl overdoses within the United States also hit new highs, indicating the success that transnational criminal organizations had in pushing their deadly products to the public. A DEA investigation this fall found a direct link between criminal drug organizations in Mexico and fentanyl-related overdose deaths.
Many drug users are unaware they are taking the substance because street drugs are being laced with fentanyl, making even the most dangerous of illicit drugs deadly.
The Examiner adds, “Because just a few grains of the substance is all it takes for a user to feel its effect, its value per ounce is higher than other drugs, such as cocaine or methamphetamine. For example, the DEA states 2 milligrams is enough to kill someone who inhales, consumes, or injects it.”
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) additionally “seized 20.4 million pills that were fake versions of prescriptions and pumped full of fentanyl. The pills were enough to kill every American, according to the DEA.”
Due to small dosages of the drug being so potent, “it also makes it significantly easier for the criminals transporting it to sneak into the country.”
The Examiner also reported on the deadly drug’s connection to Wuhan, China:
Mexican cartels purchase the ingredients for fentanyl from labs in Wuhan, China . The cartels will produce the fentanyl from those ingredients and push it into the U.S. Chinese-based financiers launder the profits for the cartels out of the U.S., back to China, and on to Mexico.
The cartels are in the business of selling whatever drug brings in the most money and is easiest to produce. Through the decades, federal law enforcement at the U.S.-Mexico border has seized millions of pounds of drugs — most of which was marijuana.
Over the past five years, marijuana seizures have significantly declined as U.S. states legalized recreational cannabis and legal grow operations began in the U.S. Because marijuana can only be grown in certain climates, similar to cocaine, it made drugs such as fentanyl and methamphetamines more attractive because they can be produced anywhere, any time.
