Don’t get suckered into the media’s Russian influence hysteria. Sure, there was Russian influence in the 2016 election, but the real problem is both parties picked totally corrupt candidates in 2016. Both candidates ran extremely corrupt scorched earth campaigns, where both political parties overlooked glaring red flags of wholesale public corruption with Hillary Clinton’s home-brew server/ Clinton Foundation pay-to-play and Trump’s King of Crony Capitalism history. :
Two Corrupt Scorched Earth campaigns;
- Trump relied on BILLIONS of dollars in free media to wage his GOP Insurgency.
- Hillary relied on media to sit on Trump dirt throughout GOP primary/lob it in general.
- Media willingly participated in scorched earth campaigns
- Trump benefited from foreign influence with Wikileaks leaks
- Hillary benefited from media downplaying her email scandal
Scorched Earth campaigns are dependent on mass media collusion to generate the SPIN. If the mass media didn’t collude with politicians, a politician would have a difficult time waging a scorched earth campaign that could reach enough Americans to impact presidential politics.
Certainly, Congress needs to investigate Russian influence in our elections, but keep in mind they used hacked information that showed corrupt media collusion between the Democrats and the media. President Obama downplayed the Russian cyber threat until Hillary lost the election. Then the Dems latched onto Russian influence as a talking point and Obama finally imposed some long overdue sanctions against Russia.
Improving cyber-security is a national security imperative. Imposing stringent cyber-safe practices, for all government officials and employees to follow should be defensive measure #1. This is why Hillary should never have access to classified information again. The Obama administration, to include President Obama, used private unsecure email to conduct government business (FBI Notes state an Obama gmail, pertaining to government business, was shown to Abedin, who was sure that email had to be classified). Time for everyone in the federal government to up their game on safer cyber practices.
If you thought the 2016 Presidential election was over, you were wrong. Trust me, the scorched earth campaigns march on. Yes, that’s true. America is now entering a #NeverEndingScorchedEarth political war between the Dems/Clinton machines vs. President Donald Trump.
On my home page there’s a heading #NeverTrup&NeverHillary, where I chronicled the Scorched Earth campaigns of 2016. I wrote extensively about scorched earth and information warfare.
This media-generated takedown of General Mike Flynn is part of the same 2016 scorched earth. The Clinton/Dem machines are reigniting the Russian influence hysteria to try and takedown President Trump – that is part and parcel what these latest leaks to the media are all about. They want to create public support to impeach President Trump.
If all these breathless revelations the media dishes out, that are 99.9% innuendo, with no concrete conclusions of wrongdoing, were such a threat to the national security of America, why haven’t the FBI and intelligence officials been rushing to Congress to apprise them of this crisis?
Answer: It’s another Dem SPIN scorched earth attack in collusion with the media and not a crisis at all.
The Left wants to take down President Trump by any means necessary.
So, what is the Russian connection to Trump’s campaign, well, I don’t know for sure, but I suspect the most concerning connection is Trump and possible financing by Russian mob/oligarchs. We need to know if President Trump owes money to Russian mobsters.
We need the Clinton Foundation corruption exposed.
Both parties need to do some serious housecleaning, so let’s start with airing the wholesale public corruption on both sides, so we can begin to rebuild an America based on shared American values.
