Donald Trump is a genius, once again outmaneuvering his opponents by “doubling-down” on their attempts to paint him as a “Ruski”.
And no, his remarks about Clinton’s missing 20,000 missing emails weren’t treason. It could be considered treacherous for an American to wish “out loud” that the Russians would spy on another American. Treachery however is not Treason. Liberals need to get over that….
The corporate dominated media was unsurprisingly willing to “jump the gun” in accusing Russia of hacking emails and interfering with international politics when no evidence has been provided. In fact, the cybersecurity firms FireEye and Crowdstrike have been responsible for suggesting the Russians as a likely source. Both of these companies are employed directly by the federal government and both their CEO’s are on record stating that they have everything to gain financially from increased international hacking “tensions”. Not exactly an impartial source.
Could Russia be behind the Wikileaks hacks? Yes, certainly. But so could tiny invisible thought-unicorns working for the Church of Scientology. The corporate media, always willing to please their masters, has adopted this first option as THE TRUTH while ignoring all other possibilities. (including the unicorns!)
Now the big question that nobody is addressing…
What’s the problem? Assuming it is the Russians, why are people so upset? The US government has specifically authorized the hacking of political parties, most recently in China with the goal of causing dissension (source: Edward Snowden). It’s not like the USA has clean hands on this matter. Nor should you be surprised that the West and Russia are constantly spying on each other. Did you miss all those James Bond films?
And more importantly, assuming that it is the Russians, all they are doing is revealing the truth to a “free people”. Something that a “free people’s” own government does not seem willing to do.
