Robert Parry: John V. Whitbeck on the Criminal Insanity of the US Establishment Claiming Russians Hacked the Election When It Was the Establishment That Lost Under Its Own Byzantine Fraud-Friendly Rules…
Washington insiders, trying to use Russia’s alleged hack of Democratic emails to get the Electoral College to reject Donald Trump, are risking making the U.S. look like the world’s largest open-air insane asylum, says John V. Whitbeck.
The current hysteria in the United States over allegations that Russia stole the American election to put its man, Donald Trump, in the White House would be hilarious if powerful people in the U.S. government and the mainstream media did not appear to take this scenario seriously.
Russia does not need to trash American democracy. From the start of this extraordinarily ugly campaign season, Americans have been doing an excellent job of that themselves. . . . Sadly, at the moment, the country of my birth is looking more and more like the world’s largest open-air insane asylum.
Tip of the Hat to Norrie Huddle.
ROBERT STEELE: The Russians did not “hack” the election. Everyone — and particularly the Israelis — have been all over our cyber-spaces, snooping away (the Israeli’s with the benefit of having compromised NSA systems, as have the Chinese, less so the Russians). No one other than Hillary Clinton and her pedophile, criminal, elite fellow travelers is responsible for losing to Donald Trump. Her earlier claims about the Russians led to DHS and others closing down the electronic voting fraud methods she used to steal thirteen primaries from Bernie Sanders. In combination, her disrespect for most Americans, whom she called “deplorables,” combined with her massive health issues (the spasms in NYC, the doctor with the syringe, the nurse in constant attendance), combined with the compelling books and online cases with respect to the Clinton Foundation’s charity fraud and treason (“pay to play”) combined with the CONTENT of the leaked documents, all had a role to play. In the end Hillary Clinton lost this election because she was a thief lacking in character and no amount of money could overcome that when the common sense of the public was brought to bear. Donald Trump won the popular vote in every single state except California, where several million votes for Hillary Clinton could easily be challenged, and many found to be dead people, double voters, and illegal immigrants improperly — perhaps fraudulently — registered. The “soft coup” is treasonous — reprehensible — the Constitutional equivalent of jury tampering. Anyone who still thinks the Russians “hacked” the US election is either a moron, or a traitor. I pray the Electoral College does its Constitutional duty on the 19th — anything less is treason.
