So What If It Was the Russians


December 16, 2017

This entire episode is a warning of just how rancid the American over-class has become. Is there no one left in the American elite who has some dignity, some class, some measure of perspective? Have they all descended to the level of drunken brawlers?

American elites are rushing to create a constitutional crisis as I write this, building up an immense head of steam (there was an 8,000 word article in the NY Times, fer goodness’ sake), and all for what?

Stop and think for a moment: The Russians allegedly “intervened” in a US election. But what is it they are supposed to have done?

They spilled the truth.

Yup, that was their unfathomable crime… revealing the truth. That’s not exactly a problem, is it? And if it is, what does that say about the aforementioned American overlords?

This is not a minor or ancillary point: The leaked emails were true! And what they revealed should be dinner-table conversation coast to coast. But instead (perhaps this was the deceitful purpose of this), we’re inundated with a new Red Scare. “Look over there, little girl, there are flashing lights.”

Where is the cool head that says something sensible? Perhaps like this: “Listen boys, this isn’t worth tearing the county apart over. We may not like Trump, but he cares about this country in his own way, and he’ll work four years to reach his goals. He’s not going to sell nukes to terrorists, and he’s not out to conquer the world. Let him have his turn.”

Apparently such people can’t survive in rulership these days.

And where is any honest soul saying, “Wow, I’m really glad those emails came out. This Hillary and her team were out of control. And if she was, who else is? We have some serious problems here.”

Has no one actually read the emails? They were damning… horribly damning. And not only to the politicians, but to the entire elite class, including nearly all major media. Does no one care? Is everyone looking at the flashing lights?

And by the way, if the Russians really did hack everyone under the sun, what about all those hundreds of billions that were supposedly spent on “keeping us safe”? Were they simply wasted? Think about this for a minute. If you were a red, white, and blue (or maybe camo) techno-marine, given those aforesaid hundreds of billions of dollars to protect the good ole USA, mightn’t you start by building systems that filtered Russian connections to Washington, DC?

If the Russians really did hack all these people, then the oceans of money thrown at the intel complex since 9/11 were wasted. Yes, I know things aren’t quite as simple as I’m putting them here, but we’re talking about incredible sums of money, and over 15 years! You’d think a few of the basics would be covered by now, wouldn’t you? And if not, were we just suckers? “Keep the yokels scared, and the money never stops.”?

This entire episode is a massive condemnation of American governance, threatening to turn into violent conflict. The people involved (on both sides of the supposed political divide) are not statesmen, are not leaders, are not even properly developed adults. They more resemble dogs fighting over scraps.

This seems an appropriate time for Americans to reconsider their devotion to this group.

A book that generates comments like these, from actual readers, might be worth your time:

  • I just finished reading The Breaking Dawn and found it to be one of the most thought-provoking, amazing books I have ever read… It will be hard to read another book now that I’ve read this book… I want everyone to read it.

  • Such a tour de force, so many ideas. And I am amazed at the courage to write such a book, that challenges so many people’s conceptions.

  • There were so many points where it was hard to read, I was so choked up.

  • Holy moly! I was familiar with most of the themes presented in A Lodging of Wayfaring Men, but I am still trying to wrap my head around the concepts you presented at the end of this one.

Get it at Amazon ($18.95) or on Kindle: ($5.99)

  1. The NY Times article said, “At least one computer system belonging to the D.N.C. had been compromised by hackers federal investigators had named “the Dukes,” a cyberespionage team linked to the Russian government.”
    That article links to a whitepaper produced by F-Secure Corporation – a cyber security and privacy company based in Helsinki, Finland… whose current leaders come from the wireless and pharma industrial complexes.
    1) The NYT says ‘linked’ and asserts that ‘federal’ investigators named the hacking team. Looks to me like the researchers at F-Secure originally assigned the Dukes name.
    2) In fact it appears that the hackers are still unknown, and the ‘Dukes’ seems to refer to names assigned to the hacking tools of the still ‘unknown’ hackers.
    3) The white papers says that F-Secure BELIEVES the unknowns have been working FOR the Russian Federation.
    Even if all true, this is a far cry from stating that the Russian Government, itself, is doing all the hacking and spying.
    all for now

  2. and, oh, please, the primary photo of the NYTimes’ article sure looks ‘staged’ to me.
    “A filing cabinet broken into in 1972 as part
    of the Watergate burglary sits beside a computer server that Russian
    hackers breached during the 2016 presidential campaign at the Democratic
    National Committee’s headquarters in Washington”
    huh ?
    Later the article is demonstrative: “An examination by The Times of the Russian operation” …. now they are sure … it is a Russian Operation.
    What struck me, as well, was the tone of the article which replayed, ad-nauseum, the same excuse used to explain 9-11 …. bungled intelligence and missed signals.
    Of course anyone with a brain knows that 9-11 was an inside job.
    All rather sickening.

  3. So what if Russia hacks the US. Snowden revealed that the US hacked/hacks our so-called European allies. What goes around comes around.

    1. Excellent point. I couldn’t agree more, but I don’t believe the Russians actually hacked Hillary’s emails. They didn’t have to. Insider Seth Rich spilled the beans on the Corrupt Hillary Clinton, and the money laundering Clinton Foundation. Seth Rich gunned down in front of his home. Clinton justice once again. Why would anyone want to work for these people? You learn the truth; they own you, or you die.

  4. Re: ZorroFLL link. Mike “Ebola Panic” Adams and NaturalNews? Somebody’s two cents follows.
    How do you know who to trust? In an age of mass disinformation and rampant Fake News?
    I would venture to assume that every mass media complex that is bigger than a very small Ma and Pa shop, by necessity to survive, ends up mixing truth with half-truths and outright scams, in order to keep the lights on…and NN is no exception. I certainly don’t trust their reporting any more than I accept what is reported as truth in a Paul Krugman column, as unquestioned truth. But sure, it makes sense to read different sources and come to your own conclusions.
    Personally Adams, though a very smart man (I will give him some credit), whenever he opens his mouth, comes across as a narcissistic blowhard who suffers a severe “hero complex”, as does his buddy Alex Jones. There seems to be something about fighting the matrix very hard and aggressively over many years, like Adams and Jones have, that can easily can turn the fighter into just another cog in the very machine that is being fought – just operating along and being funded by a bit of a different vector inside the machine. In this case, something different than the “liberal Corporate establishment” vector fought against by these two characters, but not as really different at all as one might hope for.
    Thanks Paul Rosenberg for the blog. Cheers!
