So it turns out that the all important election of 2017 for the 45th President of the United States...
Was not between President Trump and Hillary Clinton at all.
Because who really won the election is Russia!
From the dossier to the uranium deal, charges of collision and stealing the election, the investigations, special counsel, weakened White House, chaos, confusion, misinformation, fake news, and alternative facts.
This is called INFORMATION WARFARE.
All of these serve not only to weaken our elections and political system, and unnerve the trust of the American people, it wastes the time and efforts of our elected officials and media chasing ghosts.
When you can't win an election fair and square, you pull out the McCarthyism card invoking fear of Russia and provoking political repression here at home.
It's the "Commie bastards," of course that are interfering in our democracy.
But really it wasn't!
Unless you count a hundred thousand dollars or so of political ads and botnets in a billion dollar plus election as serious meddling--not.
Basically, we are talking a self-inflicted national wound--that keeps bleeding and bleeding.
Our country is going on a wild goose chase--looking for something, turning over stones, but what they find--how significant is any of it?
The real winner again is Russia.
They are strengthening themselves in the world.
They have the West on edge.
Our politicians and system of government is weakened.
We waste time, while Russia takes over Crimea, wins big in Syria, militarizes the Arctic, partners with China, and advances their world agenda.
We are distracted with eyes off the ball--spending days, weeks, months, and years in a tizzy pointing fingers at each other, seeing shadows, scared of ghosts, and punching into the air.
Russia won the election for sure. ;-)
