Hillary Clinton was Behind it All?

Hillary with Putin looking on with a wink
The idea that Hillary was the motivating force behind the Russia hoax (yes, we know it was a hoax) has been around for a long time. Declassified information was just released that indicates that then President Obama was briefed that Hillary was the source.  The Politico covers the story by spending the first half of the article saying this information was previously rejected so that the reader ...

Trump, Putin, and Turning Foes to Friends

Captain America cover
Trump is being accused of committing treason by having a friendly meeting with Putin. The - what has become normal - political screams are out now that Trump has met with Putin. One thing I find interesting, and a bid odd, is the lament that Trump didn't "stand up to Putin". This is odd on two fronts to me. First is the fact that they actually don't know if that is true or not. Much of their me...

Samantha Power: Why Foreign Propaganda Is More Dangerous Now – The New York Times

Washington on a Building
Though I don't agree with the motivation that clearly prompted this author to write I do agree with her ultimate conclusion. What I mean by that is, I don't think that Russia caused Hillary to lose or Trump to win. She points out that such efforts failed to unseat Reagan or Thatcher. I don't believe for one moment that this is the kind of foreign influence George Washington was talking about. But ...

What Exactly is Fake News? Maybe Not What You Think

"It's difficult for me to call myself a feminist in a classic s...

U.S. Hacks Elections & Overthrows Governments

Martial Law at the butt of a gun
The whole of the left seems awash in the glow of the Russians "hacking the election" panic. Trump, the left tells us, can't be a legitimate president because of what the Russians did. Rosie Oh'whocares says that we should declare martial law until Trump is cleared of "all charges". Of course, since he's not been charged with anything that's a bit a bit of a misnomer. Civil Liberties Don't Exist ...

Will Russia’s Response to Assassination be Like America’s Was?

Just be nice!
When an American ambassador in Benghazi was murdered there was really no appreciable response from the United States. Now the Russian ambassador to Turkey was shot and killed by a man who shouted in Arabic, “We are the one who pledged allegiance to Muhammad, to wage jihad.”. It's generally expected that Russia's response will be swift and overwhelming. Putin was quoted as saying,  “There can be...

Russia and the Hacking of the US Election

The whole so called Russian interference with the US election should never have been a story. The media decries fake news while ignoring the very fact that they are the fake news. It's like they think people are not going to notice. They point behind you and yell "look, a distraction!" they are sure people will still think they are reliable and honest. In the past that might have been true. People...
