RussiaGate: Conditioning for the New Cold War
One of the great secrets of the day is to know how to take possession of popular prejudices and passions, in such a way as to introduce a confusion of principles which makes impossible all understanding between those who speak the same language and have the same interests.
Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince
Proposition: To be free and at peace, people must put on their thinking caps and resist the urge to be driven by emotion. When we allow that, we welcome the manipulation of the Machiavellian forces that exist in every society to sell us external threats to deflect from their own inadequacies and corruption.
Here we have four more proof points, among a growing list, that RussiaGate is a hypocritical, dangerous attempt to sell you a cold or hot war with Russia. The hypocrisy, demagoguery, and double-standards are everywhere waiting to be discovered by any honest observer with eyes to see. While the desire for some to take down our current president may be strong, you must be careful. Your passions can and are being used against you for this broader agenda.
What are the proof points?
1) Russia is singled out for what others do.
British firm, Cambridge Analytica, has bragged that it’s 40 for 40 in influencing US elections. If foreign interference in our elections is the issue, as claimed by RussiaGaters, why do we hold British entities to a different standard?
2) The RussiaGate investigation is a stilted one-sided affair targeting certain people, while ignoring others.
Yesterday Special Counsel Robert Mueller announced he is getting cooperation from The United Arab Emirates (UAE) concerning money flowing illegally to the Trump campaign from the foreign country.
It has been widely reported for a year and a half that Saudi money flowed to the Clinton Foundation and possibly the campaign. If justice and foreign influence is the issue, why are both situations not being investigated?
For the great majority of mankind are satisfied with appearances, as though they were realities, and are often more influenced by the things that seem than by those that are.
3) The establishment is not interested in simple, transparent solutions, It prefers to leave porous election system in place and increase intelligence agency involvement in our domestic elections.
Representative Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii last week introduced the Securing America’s Elections Act of 2018. The goal is to ensure both that Americans don’t have their voting rights abridged and that their votes are properly documented and counted. The bill provides for a paper trail and could be implemented for this year’s elections.
Sounds like a good possible solution those with security concerns would jump on, right?
Wrong. Try Googling this act under News. Not one Russia 24/7 network or newspaper has even covered the introduction of this bill. Instead, the establishment is following through with its plan to leave unsecured, hackable systems in place. Their solution? Put Homeland Security in charge of voting.
4) Ignore evidence that the supposed "Russian interference" in US elections was actually domestic criminality and corruption.
New York voter rolls illegally tampered with during 2016 primary, just as many Bernie Sanders supporters and others claimed in real time.
Arizona Secretary of State says state voter systems were not hacked. Voter rolls were tampered with.
The bottom line related to this topic and these proof points is the following.
- Similar interference from other sources is ignored and Russia is singled out. This supports the goal of justifying a new cold war - a policy long in place before the 2016 election. Make no mistake. A new Cold War is about Control and Profits.
- The ongoing Mueller investigation and the media frenzy surrounding it has no desire to uncover all corruption and criminality. It seems targeted at finding the corruption of select partisan individuals. That narrative is driven to demonstrate an unproven collusion between Russia and the current administration and to further heighten public sentiment that Russia is the enemy.
- The answers put forward by the establishment are to put intelligence agencies in charge of our elections to ensure their credibility. That's laughable given the long and documented history of US and western intelligence agencies for interfering in and subverting foreign elections. When someone offers a common sense and simple way to guarantee our elections that is not covered in the media or discussed. It seems clear that more transparent elections is not the goal. The goal appears to be intelligence agency domination of the election system.
- There has been zero effort to investigate the domestic tampering with elections in 2016. This is glossed over and covered up by the claim Russia was the culprit. One seriously has to ask why supposed Russian action in the democratic primaries aided Hillary Clinton at every turn, if the goal was to defeat her? Crickets on that one from the establishment.
- The establishment media and intelligence agencies have built this story around anonymous sources, a careful curation of facts, and nebulous claims of "hacking" "interference" and "collusion." Definitions and evidence have been sparse. In fact, if you look at the Mueller investigation to-date, it's indicted Americans on totally unrelated charges and 13 Russians whose influence was demonstrably less than Cambridge Analytica.
The questions have to be asked. Beyond the partisan desire to remove Donald Trump from office, RussiaGate really seems to be about selling the American people that Russia is the enemy. It's clear that the desire is not to investigate the whole truth of voting irregularities nor to secure future elections.
It's clear that the goal is not address the myriad of concerns about domestic and foreign policy that Americans of all political stripes have. In fact, since it tends to suck all the air out of the room and consume all the media time, it seems designed to do the exact opposite.
The question I ask you and those pushing this are eagerly waiting to see is, "Will you keep buying it?"
