I am referring in the above title to the previous blog where I opined that the Trump victory smelled bad to me……
….and, it seems, I was not alone.
Reportedly, the CIA is investigating Russia’s recently discovered ‘hacking’ interference in the US electoral process more intensely and extensively than before. The part they are not hesitant to state is kinda what we already knew: Russians hacked Clinton’s (and party’s) emails in an effort to somehow assist Trump. But the real news is that the CIA and Obama have ‘stepped up’ the investigation to pursue other avenues and no one is saying even what those avenues are.
And therein lies the news – hidden, obfuscated and NOT clearly stated. BUT (and it is a big BUT) – they are saying that it is taking priority for them. This is job #1 in the US right now. THAT’S the news! You can tell that by reading between the lines that are not even being published.
I have no idea if they can catch anything, anyone or even have any real hard evidence. And how would they decide, prosecute or reverse, reveal or even release the outcome or even the TRUTH? If the truth was that Russia interfered enough to influence the election, how do they prove that before January 20th when the Donald takes over? If they can’t prove it but they KNOW it, how can they let a Russian flunky take the Oval office?
If they can’t prove it, can’t act legally nor can they reveal what they know, how the hell can they do anything?
And, if they do anything less than decisive and fact-based does it not then look like (and may be just sour grapes and suspicion?).
It seems the CIA is also briefing the house and the senate – all controlled by the Republicans. So, how does briefing the Congress, itself full of foxes, about the shenanigans of their top fox work? Isn’t that like telling the mob that Michael Corleone might have cheated? What good do they expect to come from that?
And do you think for one minute, Obama can refuse to accede the office? Do you think that an investigation that reveals proof of the lying, cheating, interfering and manipulation could be revealed to the public in such a short time?
And, if so, to what end?
Face it, politics is all about lying and cheating and manipulation. Is there not an immense, vast wasteland of lies and plots to wade through almost everywhere? And how could the CIA possibly find enough NEW and DIFFERENT to do ANYTHING decisive with it in such a short time?
They can’t. Obama can’t. They may just have to watch it happen…………….
And us? The proletariat? The slaves, muppets and minions? The dupes, fools, fodder and the grist for their money-loving corporations…what of us? Will we ever know the truth?
Nope. Those most paranoid or in-the-know (hard to tell the difference) will make outrageous statements and claims but we, the hoi polloi, will never know the truth so clearly that everyone will know it to be true. And, with the proliferation of Liar News 24/7/365 how will any kind of truth ever will out?
