Obama administration once again accusing Russia of hacking
In 2012, when Romney said that Russia was the biggest geopolitical threat, Obama mocked him and said “the 1980s are now calling and they want their foreign policy back. Because the Cold War has been over for 20 years.”
Hillary told us that Trump is too dangerous to be in charge of the nuclear codes, but now they are telling us that Russia wanted to help Trump win the election even though all of our nuclear weapons are pointed at Russia.
U.S. intelligence agencies are known to provide fake intelligence when asked for by the president. When Bush wanted to gin up support for war against Iraq, intelligence agencies provided “proof” that Saddam was hiding nuclear weapons, and Colin Powell even showed us videos of it on a television address to the American people. (And I admit that I fell for it and believed that Powell was telling me the true facts.)
That Russia is responsible for Trump winning the election is just too convenient for the Democrats to be believed. It sounds too much like propaganda to delegitimize Trump’s presidency and blame the Russians for their loss instead of their own failure to connect with the voters.
There was obviously hacking going on, but people’s emails are hacked into all the time by non-governmental hackers. If it was really a super-sophisticated government spying operation, then maybe it would have been sophisticated enough so that it couldn’t have been traced to the Russian government. It’s easy enough for me to believe that non-governmental hackers supported Trump because hackers are prole and the proles love Donald Trump: even proles in foreign countries. This foundation of support for Trump is something that liberals still don’t get.
Let’s wait and see what the intelligence agencies say about this after Trump is in charge of them.
