Swamp Smears Are SOP — Erick Prince’s book Civilian Warriors is the story of the Blackwater security firm now called Academi.
He says that when Democrats accuse it is less about revealing truth and solving problems, and more about the acquisition of profit and political power.
He notes, for instance, that lawyers for those suing Blackwater colluded with Congressional Democrats to safely spread maliciously false claims without fear of being sued for defamation.
Which gets us to this week’s circus.
Democrats and their media auxiliaries have been claiming the Russians “hacked” the election which implies that Donald Trump’s victory is illegitimate.
First, they claim the connection was found via “wiretapping”. When Trump tweeted in agreement, however, it dawned on them that an administration spying on the other party’s candidate is a serious abuse of power, and hence repudiated their original claim.
Yesterday, March 20, FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Mike Rogers testified before the House Intelligence Committee. There was no evidence that the Russians changed votes in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida, North Carolina or Ohio, they said.
One kind of wishes someone asked if there was any indication that illegals voted in Nevada, New Hampshire, Virginia, California, New York or Illinois. One also would have like to see Comey answer if the feds investigated whether any dead people voted in Chicago.
Comey, by the way, would not say that Trump’s wiretap claim was false.
Also at the hearing, it was revealed that Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice and Attorney General Loretta Lynch had the power to unmask sources U.S. citizen in data collected by the NSA. This means they could have leaked it to the press.
Another potential source for leaks is James Clapper who was Obama’s Director of National Intelligence. Clapper was reputedly there when Donald Trump was given a since-discredited bizarre dossier presumably showing that Russia had blackmail material on him. The dossier was leaked to friendly press. Comey would neither confirm or deny that Clapper was at the meeting.
Clapper is infamous for his perjury before Congress in March 2013 that the National Security Agency had not collected data on millions of Americans without warrants.
The lie was the final straw for Eric Snowden who then went public with proof that they did.
Quick tip, Mr. President: Pardon Snowden. The enemy of your enemy is your friend.
Clapper, of course, was never charged for his lie. Swamp dwellers protect their own.
Final point, those who are not complete fools agree that it was impossible for the Russians — or anybody — to hack the voting machines and change votes. They claim instead that the Russians released unflattering information about Hillary Clinton via Wikileaks. Among the more damning tidbits were her telling foreign interests at Banco Itau in a private speech that her “dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders”, and telling Goldman Sachs principles that (Chinese) President Xi is doing much more to try to assert his authority, and I think that is also good news.”
Xi, of course, is the guy trying to turn the South China Sea into a personal lake.
Would the FBI have investigated if she had won? LOL. Swamp dwellers protect their own.
