12 March 2018. A Point to Ponder on Russiagate and Its Purveyors

________________________

Was Russiagate produced by the primary leaders of the US intelligence community? If so, it’s the most perilous political scandal in modern American history and the most detrimental to American democracy.

Note well that the generation of American “liberals” who protested the Vietnam War are now slobbering over every “disclosure” that comes out of the intel apparat. They eat it all up… they demand that all the rest of us follow suit or be damned as traitors. This leads to interesting questions:

  • Was their opposition to the Vietnam War sincere or was it cowardice?
  • Why are they all following slavishly the most amoral and opportunistic politician in the USA today (Hillary Clinton)?
  • Why do they swallow CIA lies without any scepticism?
  • If interference in foreign elections is culpable, where is their outrage at the far more numerous American examples of it?
  • If election hacking is evil, where is their wrath for Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and the DNC?

Don’t hold your breath waiting for the answers.

“I Didn’t Run a Bad Campaign; I Didn’t Lose”

________________________

Through my wife, the editor of The Nation magazine, I’m close to… if not close, at least I see and hear them… leading figures of the Democratic Party. Moreover, the Democratic Party, particularly the Hillary Clinton wing of the Democratic Party, has already made it clear that it’s going to push this Trump-Russia story, at least until the Congressional elections in 2018. They think it’s a winning issue, and I think it’s clear, that this is Mrs Clinton’s hope to run again because she’ll say:

I didn’t run a bad campaign; I didn’t lose… Putin stole my election from me and gave it to Trump.

They’re going to push this at the grassroots, it’s already there at the town meetings, at Democratic grassroots, and they’re going to push it and push it at least until the elections, off-year elections, we call them, in 2018. Therefore, this is a given. No matter what facts emerge, the Democratic Party is going to push this as they are now every day.

Madame Shillary’s Upper Middle robots are shuffling down the Road to the Abyss, like lemmings. Don’t argue with them… it’s fruitless. They were the only group to profit from NAFTA (the rich always profit under a capitalist system)… they think that the Clintons are hunky-dory. They don’t know or care what ordinary folks think or want. The deaths of our sons mean nothing to them. It’s a Bizarro World that we live in, no?

29 September 2014. Must the Evil LOOK Evil? A Serious Reflection

A poster with the username “Cpa Hoffman” in the Forward wrote this on Adolf Eichmann:

Arendt was careful in her writing; and by playing down the grotesque and monstrous in describing a mass murderer as “banal”, she wasn’t excusing or even rationalising his behaviour. Her truth still stands… one can give the outward appearance of normalcy and assume the position of a government functionary whilst committing crimes greater than those who actually had the blood, gore, and guts of their victims on their hands. If anything, her description is an even greater lesson now… evil can stare us right in the face, not just in the guise of the crazed animal, but also in the seemingly normal and controlled demeanour of the stone-cold killer.

That’s a perfect description of the Rabbit. Of all the junta figures, he’s the least scrupulous (or most unscrupulous, you pays your money and takes your choice), the most rapacious, and most brutal. He looks like a goofy nerd. He sounds like a wimp. He makes one want to laugh out loud, not tremble. Yet, he’s the most vicious brute of the lot. He was Landshark Yuliya’s hatchet man… his goofy exterior fooled all too many of his victims. His mansion is less than a kilometre away from Yanukovich’s in the same guarded gated community… it’s more lavishly appointed on the inside. You see, the Rabbit was wiser than Yanukovich was… he understood that many people (especially, the ambitious and grasping) are superficial and stupid, and only look at externals. Ergo, his mansion isn’t as glitzy on the outside, but is twice as glitzy inside. The word on the street in Kiev is, “The Rabbit shits in a toilet with a solid-gold toilet-seat”. That may or may not be true… however, it shows that ordinary folks see through his exterior.

Note well that most academics, pundits, and government spokesman take him at face value. If “evil can stare us right in the face, not just in the guise of the crazed animal, but also in the seemingly normal and controlled demeanour of the stone-cold killer”, then, what does that tell us about Jen Psaki, Rod Dreher, Rich Lowry, Victor Potapov, the Stratfor poseurs (and those like them), and all the academic whores of Langley (Stephen Cohen is a laudable exception)? I leave it to you to connect the dots…
