After the shock of the election of Donald Trump, the establishment was caught flat footed. An attempt was made by progressive groups like MoveOn.org to spark nationwide protests, but that effort largely failed. Other than the west coast, people lost interest after a few days. Then a call was made for recounts in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin in late November. Again the establishment failed to topple Trump. Then December 9th, the Washington Post released an article naming a CIA source saying there is a secret report about Russian hacking that caused Donald Trump to be elected. Pundits parroted the unproven information trying to affect the the electoral college. In that failed campaign, I began to realize the CIA has bigger motives. This unproven claim is the CIA attempting to assassinate President-Elect Trumps credibility, and this will get interesting.

On a daily basis I scan the headlines of the mainstream media. Most of the news articles I see are distractions from the important problems facing our country. To see the important news, I instead have to turn toBreitbart News, ZeroHedge, and Drudge Report. I see more of the important news on these sites, and less of the distractions. One distraction subject does come up because it is becoming increasingly important and dangerous. Russia is a dangerous distraction.
The American government and Obama administration are labeling Russia as a dangerous threat to our interests. Vladimir Putin is not what I consider any better than other politicians around the world. He was a high ranking KGB officer in the brutal regime of the USSR. As the Russian President and Premier, Putin rules with strongman tactics. Putin is suspected of assassinating rivals and critics and is accused of corruption within Russia, but still pales in comparison to the crimes of the Bill and Hillary Clinton. He’s a politician and bureaucrat which equates to a corrupt man. Continue reading “RUSSIA IS A DANGEROUS DISTRACTION”
Growing up an intelligence brat travelling the world for fifteen years made classified a daily word. I knew my parents worked for a classified organization. It was so classified that I knew it was linked to NSA, but didn’t know its name until I was in my twenties. There were questions I could ask that I knew they would not answer. At the same time, they tried to make me understand their world without crossing a line. That kept raising the same question repeatedly in my mind. Classified, why are there so many secrets?
It is a tough question to analyse. Now in my forties I think I have a far better grasp on the answer. Some things are classified to protect identities and sources of information. Others are classified to be stored ammunition against an enemy for future use. Then others are classified to keep our government or an allied government from being embarrassed because of incompetence. More are classified to hide the outright illegal and sometimes heinous actions approved by our government. Continue reading “CLASSIFIED, WHY ARE THERE SO MANY SECRETS?”
