How Netanyahu Helped Putin Hack the U.S. Election in 2016

It might seem like a conspiracy theory on the surface, but a closer look reveals some troubling connections

Over the weekend, tireless crusader for truth Louise Mensch dropped another bombshell in her ongoing investigation of President Trump’s Russia ties:

He was. I can’t apologize to @BarackObama enough. @netanyahu helped @PutinRF hack America. Israel always; @netanyahu however is not Israel

— Louise Mensch (@LouiseMensch) August 4, 2017

Mensch, a former Conservative British MP turned expert on the American deep state and electoral system, has doggedly exposed the extraordinary conspiracy surrounding the 2016 campaign to her 265,000 Twitter followers. Her previous scoops include the April news that arrests of Trump administration officials would begin “next week” and that Trump adviser Steve Bannon currently faces the death penalty. In light of these claims, the more cynical might think that Mensch has simply landed where all conspiracy theorists inevitably do: on the Jews.

But such a dismissive attitude overlooks the well-documented manner in which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu actively intervened to throw the American election to Donald Trump. In fact, a carefully documented timeline of the final months of the 2016 campaign makes this interference abundantly clear. Consider:

September 25, 2016: Netanyahu meets with presumptive Republican nominee Trump in New York at Trump Tower for over an hour.

September 28, 2016: Israeli founding father and former president Shimon Peres, who had been publicly critical of Trump, is declared dead after suffering a massive stroke. Asked what he thought of Trump, Peres had said, “I don’t think there is much to think about him.”

October 3, 2016: Netanyahu tasks deep cover Mossad agent “Jeremiah” with the U.S. election portfolio.

October 15, 2016: Shimon Peres, who faked his death in order to devote himself fully to the top-secret project of electing Trump, is spotted in Moscow with a notorious group of international hackers.

October 28, 2016: FBI Director James Comey sends a letter to Congress reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server. Oddly, the first draft contains several lines in the ancient Hebrew code of At-Bash, which are subsequently scrubbed from the version leaked to the press.

November 5, 2016: A freak glitch in the Israeli-designed app Waze directs the Clinton campaign to Washington, D.C., instead of their scheduled appearances in battleground states Wisconsin and Michigan. They hastily pull together an emergency rally with Lady Gaga in North Carolina, but the damage is done.

November 8, 2016: Donald Trump is elected 45th president of the United States.

November 9, 2016: Netanyahu congratulates Trump on his election victory in a video date-stamped a week earlier.

February 15, 2017: Trump hosts Netanyahu at the White House, in just his second meeting with a world leader after the inauguration. Asked at their press conference about whether his rhetoric has fueled rising anti-Semitism, Trump responds by discussing his electoral college victory, in what seems like an unrelated aside to those unaware that the Jewish state ensured that victory.

May 9, 2017: His mission accomplished, deep cover Mossad agent Jeremiah a.k.a. “Jim” Comey successfully negotiates his exit strategy from the administration and arranges a rendezvous with his handler, Lena Dunham.

May 22, 2017: Trump visits Israel to thank Netanyahu for his assistance. While off-camera during his visit to Yad Vashem, he is replaced with a humanoid Shin Bet robot, a slightly more advanced model than the one introduced earlier in France under the alias “Emmanuel Macron.” Israeli ambassador Ron Dermer is caught face-palming on camera when the malfunctioning bot tells Israeli President Rivlin, “we just got back from the Middle East.”

June 19, 2017: RoboTrump sends Jared Kushner, who has begun to get suspicious, to the Middle East to forge Israeli-Palestinian peace, figuring that should keep him busy for a while.

August 3, 2017: Fearless truth-teller Louise Mensch exposes the conspiracy on Twitter, beating the New York Times and the Washington Post, which churlishly refuse to report the story because it was broken by their competitor.

As of this writing, Mensch has moved on from this bombshell revelation for reasons unknown, and is now pushing the hashtag #PIMPOTUS on Twitter, accusing Trump of being a serial child molester—while dropping all discussion of Israeli complicity.

One can only assume that the Mossad got to her.
