Is this thing over yet? The fantasy continues.
Tuesday, 26 December:
Just as the last bits of Christmas dinner are being wrapped for future dining pleasure, the newest media narrative is being developed.
Essentially the Russia screwed us out of our rightful
place in power dream.
This idea, a false but powerful narcotic injected into the unstable center of the progressive brain is now the propellant of their party going forward. Unable to keep the flow of income dictated by the federal government
by passage of the Tax Reform Act, the various reflections of the themes since inauguration are congealing.
A nice little liberal/left stew, if you will. Start with the notion, which is demonstrably false, that the great machine of progressive politics
lost a fair election. These people have historically never accepted defeat.
Every lost election is blamed on external events. Amazingly, the usual fallback is that the voters are too stupid. They didn't 'get' their message;
the message was either delivered by flawed sources (rarely) or were too 'lofty' for simple minds to decipher.
That was assured far more often.
To really comprehend their state of mind one must add that 1) They were very close to pulling off their
long planned transfer of power from people to government, and 2) they were beaten by Donald Trump and a bunch of 'deplorables'.
This culminated in the 24/7 rage and hate machine currently on display.
On election night, as the notion of a Trump
presidency was no longer a laughable nightmare and now a looming, existential reality, the muckety-mucks in the former administration coughed up a scheme.
One that is now, quite probably, the 'insurance clause' one disgraced FBI agent spoke of.
This plan, already vetted, was the 'break glass in case of fire' emergency fallback. Officials including John Brennan, Ben Rhodes and Robbie Mook decided to toss this to the media immediately.
You all know the story by now. Trump and Russia, by way
of Julian Assange and Wikileaks conspired to overthrow the 2016 election in favor of a Russia friendly Donald Trump.
It is a mixture of fiction and fact, and none of it was ever a crime. Not like covering up, say Watergate, or Fast and Furious. Those
One resulted in a censure of a sitting Attorney General and the other a presidential resignation.
This was never going to have the same power behind it, because the notion of improving relations with another country by an incoming
administration just isn't a crime. Not now, not ever.
This feeble premise became the breeding ground for an investigation in search of a crime without any knowledge of one occurring. That is NOT a good thing for the country.
opposition tried everything. From laying a perjury trap for Mike Flynn, which worked, to trying to prosecute the president on the emolument clause, which predictably didn't.
The assault by threat and invective came. It was answered, tit for tat, by
the President. This was not something ever done before. With the powerful progressive media alliance behind it, they could use the Saul Alinsky playbook to attack, ridicule and marginalize their opponents.
Best example? The fraud of the Charlottesville
riots. How dare the president compare 'peace protestors' with white separatists?
Replace 'peace protestors' with 'communist insurgents' and 'white separatists' with 'white nationalists' and you'll see an obvious equivalency.
sides had their crosses to bear; both came to tango and both were guilty of abhorrent behavior. Trump called it as he saw it; it was a fair assessment.
The aftermath was swift, and furious. Weak kneed Republicans joined in the criticism; it was so damn
easy to do. The ultimate 'go along to get along'.
But it ultimately went nowhere. Nobody really thinks a New York billionaire is a 'racist'. Would sort of be bad for business, you know. Those things have a tendency to get out.
the needle always came back to Russia. A country the progressives were quite fond of, until the West presided over the death of Soviet Communism; which was not so quietly admired by them back then.
Now it's the Great Satan, along with Mr Trump, of course.
With the Mueller investigation either winding down of switiching gears to snare different fish, and the tax bill passed there is a need for their feeling of panic to ensue. Indeed, their battle plan to win the midterms of 2018 is fear of Trump; not real
Russia will fit the bill because it's all they've got now.
So, like a capsized ship with people fighting for life preservers to stay above the water line, the Russia is evil narrative will continue. Now sounding more like
Dick Cheney than Bill Clinton, they speak in apocalyptic terms of Putin and Russia.
He helped Trump steal our power and he must pay. Even if that means putting the country on a war footing with a nuclear adversary, and a big one, too.
stupid, and flirts with insanity.
The deep state likes the big budget black projects and such, keep those tens of billions coming. Fighting a bunch of 6th century nomads is a .50 caliber conflict; NOT one that needs F-35's.
That, and a state
department dedicated to the overthrow of every country in the Middle East, turning them all into Lebanons. Meaning 'failed states'.
These can be both turned, and exploited. No Khadaffi's going to the gold standard in Libya.
This is the 'backbone'
to the progressive anti Russia dialogue. They cling to the fantasy of nullifying the election of 2016, undoing all the efforts of the last 11 months. That thinnest of themes is worth so much to them that they will prostitute every other idea to further this.
Tax cuts for the country? Hell, no. Just lie and say they're increases. They'll never really know.
Work on health care and infrastructure? Hell, no. Unless Trump surrenders on immigration and health care. Fix our broken military? Hell, no. Not without
equal money going to our bureaucrats.
Nope. For now, you will be treated to lifelong passivists talking trash about pushing someone with 4,300 nuclear weapons into a corner. The same ones who are terrified of North Korea and their 20 or so.
same ones who decry the possibility of thousands dead on the Korean mainland are awful quiet about the possibility of a nuclear war in eastern Europe. This strikes one as utterly delusional.
When politics are your religion, and the lust for power is
all consuming, the barriers of all reasonable thought can be removed. This is exactly what one is seeing right now.
As far as trying to affect other nation's elections, for the US to claim some sort of noble high ground on this is a complete joke.
There's a long history of this country trying -and sometimes with success- to change foreign governments; Allende in Chile', Thieu in Vietnam, Noriega in Panama.
Or even the state department trying to help Putin's competition just a few short years
ago. Bibi Netanyahu has something to say about Dem operatives from the US helping his foes.
Did Russia mess around? Of course they did. So do we.
But that honesty won't be offered any time soon, not as long as those who put the desire to rule
over the best intentions of their citizens...
