The new climate deception apparatus, directed by the President of the United States, Donald Trump, continues to reshape the breadth and scope of intergenerational climate deception. The intergenerational moral corruption previously balanced between business interest in the shape of fossil fuel corporations and politicians as a powerful ally in the White House, then. Hear this Ian Masters interview with Robert Baer.
We begin with Trump’s nominee to be the next acting Director of National intelligence, Richard Grenell, the current U.S. Ambassador to Germany who is a combative right-wing ideologue and has proven to be an utter failure by any diplomatic measure having given aid and comfort to neo-Nazis and right wing radicals in Europe prompting German leaders and officials to close doors around this ugly American. Now this latest addition to the Trump wrecking crew will be able to shape and spin the flow of intelligence that reaches the public covering up unpleasant realities while manufacturing justifications for Trump’s actions. A veteran CIA officer Robert Baer joins us to assess the dangers ahead with a far-right political operative with no intelligence experience or competence in charge of the 17 U.S. intelligence agencies. Grenell will be able to cover up expected Russian interference in the upcoming election to protect the boss and help him get reelected without as the U.S. Intelligent Community determined there was in 2016, Putin’s fingerprints all over Trump’s victory. In effect we will have a propagandist spin facts and reshape the global reality to placate Trump’s domestic audience and feed the delusion that their leader is making America great again instead of weakening the country and empowering its adversaries. As recently as February 13 intelligence officials briefed House lawmakers warning Russia is interfering in the 2020 campaign to get Trump reelected, a disclosure that angered Trump, but one that will not happen once Richard Grenell is the DNI.
