Has the Russian issue been invented by Democrats and their allies as a distraction? Probably, yes. The obsession over alleged Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential US election is over the top. The absence of other news is the evidence that this Democrat scam is meant to add to the anti-Trump propaganda. The outrage over this routine event is more evidence that this is a false flag.
False Flag Definition
The contemporary term false flag describes covert operations that are designed to deceive in such a way that activities appear as though they are being carried out by entities, groups, or nations other than those who actually planned and executed them.
Historically, the term "false flag" has its origins in naval warfare where the use of a flag other than the belligerent's true battle flag before (but not while) engaging the enemy has long been accepted as a permissible ruse de guerre; by contrast, flying a false flag while engaging the enemy constitutes perfidy.
Operations carried out during peace-time by civilian organizations, as well as covert government agencies, can (by extension) also be called false flag operations if they seek to hide the real organization behind an operation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_flag
Messing with other Countries
Rulers have always looked for ways to influence their neighbors. Until recently, countries simply invaded each other and settled it with a war. The reasons for this behavior over the centuries are endless. The perpetrators are usually the rulers. In the old days, political rivals were killed and their populations were turned into slaves. Today, we are more subtle.
We spy in each other to attempt to determine what our neighbors are up to. We also try to influence their elections. The US does this. Russia does this. Everybody does this. The current parade of politicians expressing outrage over Russia’s alleged spying is hypocritical. These are crocodile tears. They are Democrats who are simply attacking Trump for beating Hillary. It’s all meaningless political posturing.
I am not surprised that Congress is investigating the Russian connection. Most of them are Democrats; even most of the Republicans are closet Democrats. I am also not surprised that these guys need to investigate spying to know what’s going on. They are a clueless lot.
Messing with other countries usually doesn’t work out. Power vacuums are filled quickly with a whole new set of bad guys. Populations that are merged with others they hate eventually separate. The cycles of centralization and decentralization operate like weather systems. All politics is local and it requires “showing up” to have any hope of influencing outcomes and preventing troublemakers from taking over. Populations can be bribed with socialist programs that will eventually crash, but populations don’t get it and they keep taking the bribes.
The methods we use in attempting to control the behavior of our enemies has improved. Rather than go to war, we mess with trade, sanctions, bank account seizures, foreign aid and credit denial. The UN is too politicized and corrupt to be of any use.
Messing with elections can be eliminated, because this just doesn’t work. If we truly believe that sovereign nations are sovereign, then we must trust to their voters or citizens to take charge of their own countries and vote for their own destruction if they wish. If we continue to bail them out, they will never get the message.
Admitting refugees from these countries should be abolished. Refugees need to be “adopted” by relatives who can support them if they want to leave their war-torn or bankrupt country. We should allow the best of the best in these countries to apply for US immigration based on our strategic need for their skill.
The US is only responsible for telling voters and citizens of all countries to be careful about who they allow to run their countries, because they will not get any help from us if things go wrong.
Dealing with Enemies
The US needs to recognize that criminals are running many countries and some of these may just need to be avoided and ignored. Retaliation strikes should continue if needed to secure our defense.
