The Washington Post, if you need a refresher, was purchased in 2013 by Jeff Bezos, who as the fifth wealthiest person on planet Earth has billions upon billions of reasons to want to maintain the status quo that has made his extreme financial dominance possible. That same year, Bezos was awarded a $600 million contract (more than twice what the Post cost him) with the Central Intelligence Agency, a conflict of interest which Bezos’ paper to this day never discloses per universal journalistic protocol when reporting on US intelligence. Prior to the purchase, Bezos had proved his loyalty to America’s unelected power establishment by booting WikiLeaks from Amazon’s computer servers in 2010. Since the purchase, WaPo has become the single most virulently pro-establishment outlet in the top-tier corporate media, as well as a preferred outlet for leaks from the CIA, and has been shamelessly lying about Russia ever since the 2016 elections.

Even though all of this is probably true, it doesn’t mean WaPo is lying about Trump and Russia. As for WaPo and Trump, I would say “game recognize game.” They are both corrupt as all hell, and both going at the other, with everything in their arsenals. Yeah Trump took on the establishment, but only for his own personal enrichment, not because he gave a good godd@mn about anyone else in the country.

So watching these two deeply corrupt forces duke it out, is mildly entertaining. Our real life Game of Thrones, but just remember when Little Finger rescued Sansa from Joffrey, he pawned her off to a much worse monster. We the people are Sansa, Trump is Joffrey (for sure!) WaPo is Little Finger.

These are wild times, and we haven’t even gotten to the White Walkers, whom most everyone in the realm denies the existence of (like climate change.)
