The idea that Russia hacked the 2016 presidential election is so absurd that there has to be something more to the Democrat and liberal media panic. Why are they parting company with reality?
I am aware of course that liberals have an uncomfortable relationship with reality at the best of times, but since the inauguration they, and their deep state allies in the CIA and FBI, have become unhinged.
Part of the explanation lies in their paranoia about Russia. One former CIA analyst, whose analytical abilities were clearly limited, popped up on Sky News recently to describe Russia as an “adversary”. The Russian Federation is in no meaningful sense an adversary of the United States.
Unlike Germany, Russia is not engaged in a quasi-war with the USA. Russia has not sponsored assassinations on US soil, as Germany has done, repeatedly. Russia has not brought down US aircraft in international airspace, unlike the People’s Republic of China. Russia is not seeking to encroach on US spheres of influence. The Cold War is over, folks. It ended in 1991, although some in the CIA and FBI are obviously struggling to catch up. “The Americans”, great TV series though it is, is set in the 1980s, not the present day.
The KGB was broken up at the end of the Cold War. Russia is now a democracy and Vladimir Putin is her elected president. He was elected in a free and fair election, which if anything was fairer than the last US election. The meddling in the 2016 election came not from Russia, but from closer to home. Democrat-run states like California permitted large numbers of illegal aliens to vote. I suspect that on a true analysis President Trump actually won a majority amongst American voters.
Much of this paranoia is driven from Germany, a strategic competitor with Russia. The Jerries have good reason to be nervous of Russia.
In the 19th century they assassinated the liberal Tsar Alexander II. In the 20th century they tortured the poor Russians with revolution and communism, having bankrolled both the 1905 and 1917 revolutions. In 1941 they invaded in massive strength. They have been responsible for huge loss of Russian life. Between 1917 and the GRU’s taking out of the DVD’s Josef Stalin in 1953, they plunged Russia into chaos.
It is noteworthy that most of the media outlets stirring up this fake controversy over alleged improper links between the Trump Campaign and Russia, like the WaPo and the New York Times, are pro-German. Likewise, the Republicans in Congress who are using this as a stick with which to beat the Republican Administration are mostly acolytes of Bush 41.
The Good News
The good news for the Democrats and the MSM is that treatment for paranoia has advanced considerably in recent years. With rest and good psychiatric care most of them should recover their mental health. Many might even be able to lead useful lives.
How best to p..s off John McCain and Lindsey Graham? This is a question which has been troubling conservatives since the inauguration.
There is seemingly no allegation against the Trump Campaign so ridiculous that Senators McCain and Graham cannot be found to support it. If Washington is a swamp, then these two are alligators, no offense intended.
I think the best way to p..s them off would be for the Administration to formally recognise Russia’s perfectly proper re-annexation of parts of eastern Ukraine, territory which was once part of the Russian Empire and which lies within Russia’s Sphere of Influence.
Both McCain and Graham are strong supporters of the German-backed neo-Nazi regime in Kiev. Recognition would be a real kick in the teeth for them, and that’s where they need kicking, again no offense.
Breaking up NATO would be another good idea, without prejudice to the Special Relationship between the US and the UK. Germany would like nothing more than to drag her former wartime enemies into a conflict with each other.
The idea that Britain and America should go to war with Russia in order to save Germany from defeat is simply ridiculous; indeed if Russia did go to war with Germany, we should join in on the side of the Good Guys, i.e. the Russians.
I strongly recommend a viewing of David Zublick’s recent YouTube presentation on Pizzagate: The Men Who Knew Too Much about Pizzagate.
David’s theory, which I find fits the facts, is that General Flynn was forced out because he was closing in on the involvement of several senior Democrats in Pizzagate. Apparently it wasn’t Mike Flynn who was taking the lead on this, but his son. The apple does not usually fall far from the free, and I suspect that his son is both good people and smart.
It’s not just Democrats mixed up in Pizzagate, however – several left-wing, pro-German Republicans are also involved. Zublick has suggested that one of them is a good friend of Vice-President Mike Pence. If true, that would make sense: there was no reason at all to force Mike Flynn out over his perfectly proper dealings with HE the Russian Ambassador, who I gather is a nice chap, with respect.
Admittedly Mike Flynn could have given Mike Pence a fuller briefing, but given the pressure everybody was under during the Transition it was perfectly understandable that he didn’t. All that Mike Pence needed to do was to ask for an apology, which in fact he was given anyway. Nothing to see here, folks, move on.
Instead what happened was like an accident on a British motorway – lots of flashing lights, police cars everywhere, lane closures and queues for miles.
When you eventually drive past the accident scene you expect to see dead bodies everywhere, with arms and legs hanging out of smashed-up automobiles and bloodstains all over the road. Instead all you see is a minor shunt, with a couple of bent fenders. Not even a single body.
There was nothing for Mike Pence to get so excited about over the contacts between Mike Flynn and the Russian Ambassador, so why was were the Vice-President’s panties in such a twist, no offense intended? If Mike Flynn truly was closing in on a friend of Mike Pence, that would explain the Vice-President’s with respect hysterical over-reaction.
David Zublick was not on my radar until this week, but he seems to me to be talking sense. I’ve suggested he read my book!
The Democrats’ long-term aims
Do Obama Democrats want to do real harm to America? Do they hate the country and the very idea of freedom and democracy? Do they want to build up China, at America’s expense?
The idea of fair trade with China seems to be anathema to them – they are desperate to export American jobs to East Asia. (And then they wonder why they lost in the Rust-Belt states).
They also want to hasten making whites a minority in their own country. Their version of America mid-century is of a country with a Hispanic/black/Moslem majority population and a built-in majority for the Democratic Party. As we saw in the Obama years they were willing to disregard federal immigration statutes and encourage immigration violators to breach America’s laws.
President Trump’s patriotic America First policies pose a real threat to them. They are desperate to prevent America being governed in the American interest. In their eyes any president who does not govern America in the Sino-German interest is illegitimate. They will do everything they can to frustrate such a president.
Clinton Democrats are desperate for power. When she finally realised that she had lost, at about 1 am on election night, Hillary threw one of the biggest hissy-fits in American history. No TV screen was safe. The Russians have a charming custom of throwing champagne glasses backwards after a toast. Hillary was throwing them forwards.
The Clintons seem to see their role as managers of American decline, rather like the two Harolds, Macmillan and Wilson, saw their role in the 1950s and 1960s as managing Britain’s decline. As with the two Harolds, each of whom was a German agent, who had worked hard for a German victory in World War II, the Clintons do not seem to mind the decline of their country as long as they’re in charge.
To what lengths will these desperate Democrats go?
The Fibbies and the wire-tap
The controversy over the illegal FBI wiretap of the Trump Campaign seems to provide the answer. It is now clear that the Fibbies were backing Hillary Clinton and were prepared to break the law in order to get her elected.
The President is right, with respect, to be shocked. The parallel with Watergate is entirely fair.
It is no answer to say that the Fibbies were ‘just’ tapping the Russian Ambassador. Under international law they have no business tapping any ambassador’s telephone. That was a serious breach of diplomatic protocol.
Since the allegations of Russian tampering with the election are just got-up nonsense in order to embarrass the Trump Administration it is clear that the Fibbies had no legitimate law enforcement interest in tapping either the Ambassador’s phones, or the Trump Campaign’s.
Mark Levin’s analysis that a ‘soft coup’ is underway appears to me to be sound. It is consistent with what distinguished colleagues on VT were saying the week before.
It is now clear that leading Democrats, and key players in both the FBI and CIA, no doubt reporting to the Correa/COREA Group in Frankfurt, were not expecting Donald Trump to be sworn in. I suspect there was a plan to assassinate both him and Vice-President-elect Pence during the inauguration, before they started taking their respective oaths of office.
The hysterical smear campaign over alleged links with Russia has all the hallmarks of a botched, last-minute operation.
The Democrats and the media badly bungled their attack last week on the Attorney-General. He slipped up slightly during his confirmation hearings, but since neither meeting with the Russian Ambassador was significant, nor anything to do with Russian ‘interference’ in the election, the omissions, such as they were, were not material.
It looks like the Fibbies miscalculated the election badly. They would hardly have broken the law to help a side they thought were losing. Now they have a serious Attorney-General in place they and their Democrat allies are panicking.
Given Democrat exposure over Pizzagate, which the FBI has helped cover up, they have even more reason to want a malleable, Loretta Lynch type A-G in place. The very last thing either the Democrats or the Fibbies want is an Attorney-General with integrity.
Priebus must go
One thing which has emerged very clearly since the inauguration is that Reince Priebus is one of the Bad Guys, with respect. He’s got to go. It’s not just that he’s about as useful as a chocolate teapot, as we say over here.
The White House is leaking like a sieve and Priebus is playing political games. Very frankly, he’s about as loyal to the President as Brutus was to Julius Caesar, and as we know Big Julie had some loyalty issues with Brutus.
The DNA Report on Obama
With respect, Mike Pompeo needs to stop holding out on the President over the CIA’s DNA report on Obama. Since it ruled out Obama’s claimed maternity it’s pretty explosive.
It may be of course that the Virginia Farm Boys are holding out on the Director. Either way Mike needs to recognise that he wasn’t sent down to Langley to be house-trained.
If the CIA aren’t careful they may find that the NSA or the DIA beat them to it, which would do them no harm at all in future budget negotiations.
Nevermind that a copy of the report would give President Trump a bigger stick than Theodore Roosevelt’s with which to beat Obama, the CIA should have stopped the man from running as soon as they confirmed that he was an alien.
Since Snowden took a copy of the DNA report to Moscow President Trump could always get a copy on his first state visit to Russia. I am sure that President Putin would like a little something in return, like the Eastern Ukraine, but that can always be arranged.
This Week’s TV Review: Sounds of the Sixties
Britain’s most popular radio show for the last 25 years has been Sounds of the Sixties, presented by BBC stalwart Brian Matthew on Radio 2 at 8 am on Saturday mornings. The show was hugely successful and Brian Matthew was very popular; so they’ve fired him, even though he was only 89, and moved the show to a graveyard slot, 6 am on Saturday morning. Trust me, 6 am on a Saturday in England is a graveyard slot. Even the Army doesn’t do reveille at 0600 on a Saturday.
Having missed my usual dose of Sixties music yesterday morning, I chanced to tune in to a TV programme by the same name, being broadcast on the Yesterday channel, whilst waiting for another program.
What I saw was one of the most hilarious TV interviews I have ever seen. I hope it’s up on YouTube somewhere. Pink Floyd, one of my favorite brands, has just played a track, and played it very well too.
This was in the early years of the band, indeed the show was in black and white, the BBC having delayed the introduction of color in Britain in order to annoy people.
A bloke in a moustache, smoking a ciggy, then conducts an interview of such stunning vacuity that I first thought it had to be a wind-up. No, he was serious. Having complained about the noise (!) he then wittered on about string quartets.
Now one thing Pink Floyd are not is a string quartet. Their very name is what we in the Intelligence Community call a clue. I’m sorry I don’t have more details for you, but track it down and watch it if you can. It’s a hoot.
And yes, I do like pop music. I’m a social liberal, remember, although I’m against abortion save in the case of rape, preferring to leave killing babies to our community partners the Germans, who have more experience at it, favor capital punishment, because it works, and support the War on Drugs.
