Opinion from a Libertarian ViewPoint

Shhhhhhh! – LewRockwell

If the Russians are that scary and powerful, either we’re doomed or maybe the DNC should hire them for the next election.


Even if you’re not a Trump fan, there are some things you just shouldn’t bring up in public and/or polite company. It isn’t necessarily that they’re impolite, it’s just that you’ll call unwanted and embarrassing attention to things best left hidden under the carpet.

Start with those 12 Russian “ham sandwichs” Mr. Mueller — with a lot of help — managed to conjure up and then indict for “meddling” in the 2016 U.S. election.

It’s not that, as the justice system aphorism goes, a D.A. can get his Grand Jury to indict even a ham sandwich, it’s that it took Mr. Mueller and Company over a year and a lot of taxpayer money to do it.

And it’s not so much that he then blocked a defense motion for a quick trial. It’s not even that, as the indictment admits, there was no collusion and no effect on the election.

No, what’s embarrassing is the overwhelming U.S. media/pundit consensus that 12 Russian ham sandwiches somehow “threatened our democracy.”


Besides, as nearly everyone knows, countries try to influence each other all the time. The U.S. Government is particularly influenced by Israel and their AIPAC, etc. And that’s on a regular basis, not just during elections. As Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu put it, America is a thing you can move very easily.

But it’s in the “keep it under the carpet” department where the real problems lie.

It’s the U.S./CIA record of messing in other folks’ elections. For example, elections held by our archenemies Australia and New Zealand. As in the U.S. coup sacking democratically elected Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam and messing with the re-election of New Zealand Prime Minister David Lange for example.

And when that doesn’t work out, the CIA/government amalgam dials-up regime change and/or an assassination even in New Zealand.

The problem that needs to be kept under the carpet is that the U.S. Government does this sort of thing regularly and pretty much everywhere. Like this – – –

Since World War II, during a supposed golden age of peace, the United States military has killed some 20 million people, overthrown at least 36 governments, interfered in at least 82 foreign elections, attempted to assassinate over 50 foreign leaders, and dropped bombs on people in over 30 countries. The United States is responsible for the deaths of 5 million people in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, and over 1 million just since 2003 in Iraq. –U.S. Wars and Hostile Actions: A List


Given this championship U.S. Government/CIA “meddling” as the standard, it might be more appropriate to claim the 12 Russian amateurs participated in the 2016 election rather than meddled. If they really did….

Be seeing you
