Echoes of the alt-left in what has become his Norm.
I am too troubled by the support of this military action, or tacit support by liberals and progressives who have dropped their principles that they supposedly held against Bush launching attacks in the ME.
I also, have never given much credence to any evidence that Russia’s influence, to whatever degree was if at all true, had any tangible effect on the election compared with the surely tangible effect of Clinton’s campaign that ended up defeating herself.
All of that said, the alt-left Norm, that Norm echoes here, is this bizarre blindness, or refusal to see the FACTS regarding Trump’s very long track record of business interests that are entwined with Russian oligarchs, that have long been about him getting more power and more money.
That those relationships would be considered even more important during his campaign, and during his Presidency should be damn obvious, and because after all Trump is, well, Trump it is an absolute given that those relationships are dark and infested with corruption.
It was those interests entwined with Russian business crooks that inspired any “peace” intentions with Russia. I and others asserted that point time, and time again during the campaign, countering the alt-left fucking absurd argument that Trump, TRUMP!!! could possibly possess any enlightened view about peace with anyone.
But Norm, as has become his Norm, on this, once again pushes the narrative that gosh, Trump just wanted peace and now look what has been done to poor Trump.
Did I just assert that the DOJ shouldn’t be busy ferreting out corruption by countless US business crooks? Nope.
What I am asserting, is of all people, I’m quite pleased that the NY district is hot on the heels of Trump’s jerk attorney in delving into just what a monumentally corrupt President we have sitting in the Oval Office.
And the chance that Trump might not actually have the power to do anything about THAT wing of the investigation.
One can only hope. I hope I didn’t just ruin Norm’s day.
