Less than 12 hours after turning a Bangkok dive bar (This parts important, stick around to the end ;-)) into a one man karaoke joint I noticed this little Nugget on my news feed.
Shocking, really, that with all that was on the line this election, he chose not to speak: The historicity of the election of the first woman president and the battle itself I would Hope in the face of such “unprecedented” electoral interference Obama would Grow a sack and say “Jesus, Vlad, we could have had the most qualified person to ever run for president in office but instead you stuck us with Literally Hitler.”
Well there is a good reason for Obamas silence, besides the obvious beta sheep refusing to confront an Alpha wolf.
The Russia is interfering with US elections story was pure propagandistic Bullshit from the get go.
Now I understand the optics involved in this. Hillary Clinton said “16 US Spy agencies CONFIRMED Russia was interfering in the election” (with the email hacks sent to Wikileaks), and the Media fact checked it and confirmed it so it MUST be true.
Nope. Still Bullshit.
Here is what actually happened. There are 16 Agencies of National Intelligence that work both separately and together under Director James Clapper, a man similar to Hillary Clinton as in he also perjured himself before Congress. In October of 2016 Clapper sent out a memo stating that:
1. Russia was actively trying to commit electronic espionage against the United States (Duh, as is every other state on Earth and as we are trying to do to every other nation)
2. Top intelligence officials in the Russian Government would need to authorize such actions on behalf of the Russian Government (No Shit, you can’t just sit at a computer at the Kremlin and hack the DNC for shits and giggles)
3. Only the Russian Government could have the technical prowess to pull this off (Bullshit, Hillary’s server and the DNC server were so unprotected that as many as 5 countries (and non state actors) were able to hack the servers.
4. There was NO evidence that Russia was attempting to influence the election via hacking actual polling locations
5. Nowhere in the entire memo was the word “confirmed” used nor was there any mention that any of the 16 agencies came to separate independent conclusions pointing directly to Russian tomfoolery in the US electoral process.
So when Hillary said “16 US spy agencies have CONFIRMED that Russia is trying to influence the election” a more honest reading of the reality would be “The political hack who perjured himself before congress wrote a vague Bullshit politicized memo with no collaboration with any of the 16 agencies saying absolutely nothing of importance accusing Russia of trying to sway an election.”
Doesn’t that make more sense when you hear that Obama didn’t say shit to Putin this past weekend?
Now this election is in the books and the Fall of the house of Clinton is complete as their name will be anathema moving forward. And having Hillary lie and the fawning media swear to it is not a story in itself.
So why do I bring it up? Why should we be concerned that our president and possible future president almost reignited the Fucking Cold war?
Let me take you back in time to a Bangkok bar last Friday night.
“I FOLLOWED THE MOSKVA, DOWN TO GORKY PARK, LISTENING TO THE WIND OF CHANGE!”
Klaus Meine was not able to drown out my singing on Friday night.
Meine, the lead Vocalist of the German Band the Scorpions, composed the song “Wind of Change” around the time of the fall of the Soviet Union and the eastern bloc countries. All too often we like a song yet we never realize the deeper symbolism behind the song and lyrics. The Wind of change was the hopeful spirit at this time as we witnessed the fall of communism and anticipated a more open society. Meine has previously stated that the official policy put forward by Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev ,“Glastnost” (which meant “Publicity” or “Openness”) was the inspiration behind the lyrics:
“The world is closing in
Did you ever think
That we could be so close, like brothers
The future’s in the air
I can feel it everywhere
Blowing with the wind of change
Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
in the wind of change”
Can you believe that that was the feeling in the early 90’s? Wind of Change has been voted the as the German Song of the Century. It is THE song played whenever a video of the Berlin wall coming down is shown in Germany as it is the song most associated with Hope and German unification.
Beautiful time, really.
And to think several dipshits tried to bring us back to before that happy time back into the cold war, for shortsighted political gain.
I wasn’t thinking of Barry and Hill and Jimmy Clapper or any of the lying weasels that thought Hillary’s election was worth igniting a new cold war with a hot war nuclear capable Russia. Now maybe it was the C2H6O coursing through my skull in Bangkok, a city where I have made friends with people of many diverse backgrounds but I thought about hope again.
The Booze can do that to you. As can the music. and not keeping company with lying assholes as well.
