It has been nearly a year since the United States launched an internal investigation into the potential of a Russian hack influencing our election. Since then we have lived with innuendos, half-truths, and straight-up lies involving Russia and Donald Trump. The Democrats still cannot accept the fact that they lost to a candidate like Trump, admittedly one of the most unlikely presidential hopefuls in US History. The DNC, Hilary Clinton, and basically everyone with a D on their voter registration has perpetuated the myth that Hilary actually won but was thwarted by the Russian spy agency. Why do they think this? Is it true? What does it all mean?
Let’s start with the first question: they think this because the DNC was hacked during the election and all their dirty laundry was aired for all to see. The Democrats are piping mad that someone pulled back the curtain and exposed them for their manipulative, calculated, and superior attitude towards the voting populous. They rigged their own primary to make sure Clinton was given the candidacy.
This was only found out because of the hack. They said nasty things about constituents and are angry that those constituents found out. Again, we only know this because of the hacks. In addition, the DNC, and to a greater extent the United States, exposed themselves to this risk by not only brushing over Clinton’s use of a private email server as Secretary of State but also that all evidence of what was on this server and what may have been stolen was destroyed via a hammer.
So where do the Russians fit in? They claim that these hacks were perpetuated by Russia to help Trump and, humorously, that Trump was in on it. However, all this is circumstantial at best and to date, ZERO evidence has been brought forth to prove Trump had anything to do with it. Even more of a strange variable to all of this was what should seem like the random murder of a young man on streets of one of the deadliest cities in America, our capital Washington DC.
However, this young man, Seth Rich, was a Sanders supporter and with each passing day evidence continues to trickle out that his murder may have been more than random chance. Some theorists, though admittedly the hard-core proof is missing, believe that Rich was the culprit and the Clinton Campaign had him killed– Vince Foster Style.
So, is any of this true? The US State Department investigated and found not one vote was tampered with by outside influences. Therefore, the only actual impact of the hack was that people got a face full of truth from the Clinton Campaign. Did the Hackers change votes? NO. Did the Hackers delete votes? NO. So how did Rich (or whoever it was) influence the election? They cut away a curtain of lies to reveal the Wizard behind the curtain, and people weren’t satisfied.
So why is this still an issue that the Democrats keeping running on? Because it’s a political weapon. It lays a shroud of uncertainty and illegitimacy over everything Trump does. It is an effort to slow or thwart any initiative he or the Republicans may have. Instead of voting on Health Care, they are busy with Russian investigations and the new circus in town; obstruction of justice by Trump, which is even more flimsy than the Russian conspiracy.
All of this is a calculated effort to boost the Democrats, invigorate the party base, and maintain their power matrix and that of the Deep State. However, they are losing and I believe they are starting to feel it. Record low donations for the party. Ridiculous expenditures into unimportant races that they still lose. Also, and more dangerously, the Democratic base committing acts of violence against Trump supporters to the point of political assassination.
These individuals have been made to think that they are patriots fighting against a Russian Manchurian Candidate. In reality, they are political thugs for a disreputable, and now hysterical political ideology.
