They Who Cry “Russian Collusion!” Must Look in the Mirror

Democrats and sundry leftists in the media are showing their hand when they complain about Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. In fact, they damn themselves.

There is no evidence whatsoever, not even a reputable claim, that Russia affected America’s voting machines or vote tallying processes. Rather, the charge from Democrats and the Liberal Media Complex is that Russia impacted public awareness and opinion regarding America’s election and our presidential candidates, and that Russia’s impact was to candidate Clinton’s detriment.

In other words … It’s the messaging, stupid!

What liberals thereby admit — wittingly or not — is that the information put into the public square, and how it gets put there, can be determinative. That’s a huge admission on their part. What liberals accuse the Russians of doing is what the Liberal Media Complex have done every election cycle for decades, and continue to do even when an election is over.

Case in point. One recalls the months between Barack Obama’s 2008 election victory and his inauguration in January 2009. Many in the liberal media queried with breathless enthusiasm … Must we wait until January to have this brilliant man and his team of geniuses take the reins of power? Forget what the U.S. Constitution says. Can we not just inaugurate Obama in November or December of 2008? Just do it!

Contrast that with the atmosphere of foreboding after Donald Trump’s recent victory … We must prevent Trump from taking the reins of power. We beg those of you in the Electoral College to ignore your constitutional duty. Deny this awful man and his team of intellectual delinquents any access to the White House. Just do it!

Nothing upsets the liberal establishment more than getting beat at their own game. In 2016, Donald Trump beat them, indeed humiliated them, at their ‘messaging’ game. So, they hate the man and still want to undo him somehow. Their parade of animus and negativity continues unabated.

As for the Liberal Media Complex, they’ve shown their hand. Claiming a mantle of journalistic integrity, they brazenly attempt to impact our political discourse in favor of chosen candidates and causes. That’s not journalism. It’s political advocacy. They damn themselves.

Is Hillary’s Candidacy America’s Oblivion?

Observing Hillary Clinton’s ineptitude on the campaign trail — think back to her comically bad campaign launch, re-launch, and second re-launch; consider the ham-handed manner in which she has conducted herself, shrieking like some wounded animal, for example, when she tries to raise the energy level in a speaking venue; and her piling lie upon lie about her State Department emails, about her Benghazi fiasco, about her husband Bill’s melange of sexual indiscretions — one gets a sense that Mrs. Clinton may be less than fully committed to her own candidacy.

Though Hillary wouldn’t mind being president, she detests running for president. She is, after all, a most unappealing candidate. Public polling shows overwhelmingly people do not like her and do not trust her; and even among Democrats, polls indicate the level of enthusiasm for her is quite low. Yet, the massively powerful, entrenched interests of the Democrat party and the rest of the liberal establishment continue to back her. Why is that … one may ask.

For decades, Bill and Hillary Clinton have enriched themselves, immensely. They’ve done so, in large part, via their purportedly non-profit and apparently corrupt Clinton Foundation, premised on the notion that Hillary would one day follow in her husband’s footsteps to become ‘the most powerful man in the world.’ In this manner, the Clintons have doled out markers to various individuals and state entities. As those powerful interests come to collect, what might be the reaction if the high-priced markers the Clintons sold for so many years suddenly become worthless? Consider that and the Clintons’ choice is clear: the White House or oblivion.

Hillary has, at the same time, compromised herself due to her mishandling of official email communications while Secretary of State. It is generally accepted that her extremely vulnerable, private email server was hacked by foreign governments — the Russians, for instance — as well as clandestine, even sinister, non-state entities. When a U.S. President becomes subject to blackmail by various state and non-state entities, for whom America’s national security is merely a commodity to be traded, the consequences to our nation could be devastating.

The FBI recently concluded its investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s private email server and her thousands of missing emails. That investigation ended with a curious decision by FBI Director James Comey not to indict Mrs. Clinton, despite the negligent, callous, criminal nature of what she has done. An investigation into the Clintons’ nefarious dealings via their family foundation remains ongoing, so we’re lead to believe.

The ultimate verdict upon Hillary’s numerous indiscretions, compromising and immense, has yet to be rendered. America’s national security, and potential oblivion, rest in the balance.
