The cable news networks, are like expectant, proud fathers…
They’re poised to deliver their newest, 24/7 news cycle baby.
After a fervent, profound and dire opening statement from Senator Mark Warner – in his best baritone – concerning the possibility of “Russian Interference” in our most “sacred” institution (and this is a guy who won’t even support Voter ID).
So we in the public have to endure the hue and cries by politicians on both sides of the aisle that this alleged interference is an “Act Of War” and that we should be OUTRAGED!
Here’s a short list of countries where, American politicians, in their wisdom, overthrew the elected and non elected governments”.
The Congo in 1960. The leader was eventually hunted down and killed by the CIA.
The Dominican Republic 1961
Chile 1973 We really covered ourselves in glory on this one.
Iran 1953 This one is a disgrace.
Vietnam. Things went swimmingly there.
Don’t think for a minute, that we’ve even learned our own lessons.
We interfered in the Democratically elected government of The Ukraine just a couple of years ago.
Check out this from Pat Buchanan:
“First, though portrayed as a tyrannical thug, Viktor Yanukovych won the presidency of Ukraine in 2010 in what international observers called a free and fair election. He may not be Marcus Aurelius, but his remains the legitimate government.
“Second, high among the reasons Yanukovych chose Russia’s offer to join its custom union over the EU is that Putin put a better deal on the table.
“Moscow put up $15 billion in loans and cut-rate oil and gas.”
The Democratically elected president in Ukraine was forced out by American supported mobs in the streets and by the way, John McCain was there, in person, to help incite the violence and the overthrow.
Egypt, you bet. For a while, during the “Arab Spring” here in the White House, we thought that those guys in the Muslim Brotherhood were just like Washington, Jefferson, Hamilton et al.
Libya, that is going just great!!”
Anyone who has above room temperature IQ and a cursory interest in politics and foreign affairs, knows, KNOWS that America spies on allies and enemies alike and does EXACTLY what the Russians are accused of doing.
