As Obama’s days as U.S. President draw to a close, both the Obama administration and the mainstream corporate media are attempting to provoke a greater conflict with nuclear-armed Russia on the basis of something that never actually happened; at least on the basis of something that they have yet to prove has actually happened. Still, the hype and hysteria being piped from the halls of the White House, intelligence community, and the mouthpiece of the establishment, the corporate media, is incessant. According to the media and the President, the Russians hacked the DNC (never mind the fact that the DNC was acting inappropriately and rigging the elections themselves) and put American democracy at risk.
Of course, neither the intelligence community nor the White House has yet to produce any evidence of their claims, despite the fact that they are clearly provocations aimed both at Russia and the domestic population of the United States, with the intention to frighten the latter into submission with a healthy dose of Neo-McCarthyism and red-baiting. Still, this continuous and baseless propaganda might cause many Americans a number of flashbacks since the last time their President, intelligence community, and corporate media came to them with proof of an encroaching threat to democracy, telling them the evidence was clear but that the masses would simply have to “trust” them, Americans ended up bewildered on the battlefield in Iraq where they remain to this day, thirteen years on.
Once again, we are given no evidence, only vague unproven allegations to justify actions that very well may be destructive not only to the American people but to all the people of the world. All we need is for Colin Powell to give a PowerPoint presentation in front of the United Nations and the circle will be complete.
What little “evidence” released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, FBI, and DHS has been evaluated and found to be nothing more than accusations and, at best, circumstantial evidence. Any other “evidence” possessed by these institutions remains classified and the government isn’t budging, insisting that the public march down the path to World War Three on the basis of trust in organizations that are notorious for lying through their teeth.
But the longer the media and the government continue to promote their hysteria with no proof behind them, the harder it becomes to sustain the narrative. Even the great orator himself, Barack Obama, couldn’t justify the continued holdout of information from the American people if his “intelligence” was so convincing. When faced with a question of whether or not he would declassify the intelligence or at least release proof, as the Russians have suggested, Obama demonstrated just why his reputation for wit and charm are completely overrated in the absence of a teleprompter. After stammering and stuttering his way through a direct question, a hallmark of an unscripted Obama, he was forced to fall back on his tired and wilted “hope and change” style platitudes of how great America is before possibly realizing that, eight years and rivers of blood on, the “hope and change” motivational church speak just doesn’t hold the weight it used to.
After dropping the ball twice, Obama did the only thing an embarrassed child is capable of doing by launching into a torrent of insults suggesting that Russia is small and weak and that they produce nothing but oil, gas, and arms. Apparently, Obama missed out on the irony of an American President criticizing another nation of not producing anything but oil, gas, and arms.
He then launched into a tirade of how Russia is not capable of “changing us,” seemingly not noticing that this diatribe rendered his previous hysterical propaganda that Russia had indeed “changed us” as either trivial or completely false. We are also unsure as to whether or not Obama is actually aware of which country he is talking about since Russia is, after all, not small by any means.
