Today, dismissed FBI chief James Comey testified saying that any possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia didn’t extend to Trump himself. This takes some of the heat off of Trump.
To me, this really wasn’t a surprise, because as pointed out by Zero Hedge, Comey had already testified under oath that he had faced no political pressure to end an investigation, and that if that did happen, that would be a “big deal”. It’s not likely that Comey would have reversed his position and faced possible charges of felony perjury just so some left-wing college-dropouts-to-be can see their daydreams of a cheap victory come true.
What you can count on at this point is for the corporate mainstream information media to attempt to spin this against Donald Trump, considering that they have had an incentive for quite some time to do this, for some reason.
For most, it would seem as though the corporate media has gone completely insane. After all, one might assume that the job of this corporate media is to inform the public, not to incessantly comment on a conspiracy theory for which no evidence has yet been presented.
In April of 2016, it has been found that only 6% of Americans trust the news media. When you have an approval rating lower than that of Congress, there’s a problem. When people become aware that people hate them and the job that they do, that tends to have an effect on them. For one thing, it’s the tendency of people to resolve the cognitive dissonance between what they do and people’s opinion of it by simply dismissing them as idiots.
But that’s not the only change that takes place. Like Congress, the corporate media has discovered that they have lasting jobs and steady income in spite of anyone’s opinions of them, and they have therefore come to the realization that they don’t need anyone’s respect.
In light of this, if they were to go full-tilt and turn their position as informers into a veritable sludge factory of left-wing narrative, what do they have left to lose? At this point, they know precisely what’s expected of them, and they’re going to give what audience that they have what they want, because it’s precisely the kind of horse crap that holds their attention.
Sure, Trump is off the hook for the time being, legally speaking. But even now, as we speak, the corporate media is hard at work trying to get the Russian collusion conspiracy theories to stick to him, regardless of just how silly that they sound.
They don’t need to convince the brightest people among us, of course. After all, the brightest among us don’t have votes that count any more than anyone else’s. Their goal is to convince enough idiots to make a difference. To that end, they’ll go non-stop to pump as much garbage into as many minds as possible.
Here’s a few facts to put some things into perspective:
- It’s possible for a hacker to mask their IP address so that it appears to come from a different location. Popular patsies to pin illicit web conduct on are countries with a known history of non-cooperation with American investigators. China is a famous example. North Korea took the blame for a particularly famous bug just last month. And yes, Russian IPs are especially popular among hackers. Even trolls in my comment sections do this, and they think I have no idea.
- The DNC’s email server wasn’t hacked. I’m not revealing it here, but their password at the supposed time of hacking was so simple, that a grade-schooler could have guessed it in a matter of seconds. It’s as bad as setting the combination to your luggage as “12345”. I’ve already commented on the technical ineptitude of the left, so suffice to say, you should be very glad that someone so terrible at keeping things a secret lost the election. Unless you hate America.
- That last fact was so compelling, that I forgot what I was going to put here. But you’re welcome to go back and reread that last one. There’s a lot of weight to it. Like, imagine if the launch code to the US nuclear arsenal was something like “00000000”. Oh, wait…
- The aforementioned grade-schooler would have easily been able to post what he found on WikiLeaks. So yeah, it’s quite possible that a child with the age of a single digit could have prevented Hillary from abusing even more power. There’s even a WikiHow article on how to do so.
Have fun looking on as the corporate media collapses into lunacy. So far, it’s been quite a show.
