I do enjoy international relations and it has been sadly missing while people thumped their chest about the vote….and now before the conversation turns to 2020 I would like to talk about other “stuff”…….
The election is over and a distant story has been replaced with who voted for who and why….does anyone out there remember the whole Russia-gate thingy?
Well to make a bunch of Trump supporters happy it has been all but forgotten…..
After all the screaming headlines and hysterical talk of “treason,” the Russia-gate hoax was almost entirely absent from the midterms. One would think that the other party being in the hands of a ruthless foreign dictator who has it in for America would be a major campaign issue – that is, if the Democrats actually believed their own propaganda. However, we’ve seen neither hide nor hair of Putin in all those campaign ads, or at least hardly a glance: that’s because Russia-gate has always been a fraud, a setup, and really a criminal conspiracy to take down a sitting US President on the basis of a gigantic lie.
As the promulgators of that lie are exposed – the Deep State amalgam that includes foreign intelligence agencies as well as Trump’s domestic opponents – Democrats are backing away from what has suddenly become, for them, a very messy narrative. For what has happened is that the narrative has turned on them, and now implicates them in a massive scheme to embroil the Trump campaign in a web of foreign influencers.
Now that the election has been decided will the Russia thingy come around again?
I’m guessing yes it will….especially since Our Dear Supreme Leader has fired Sessions…..
