Not only are they doing this, they're doing it in such a way that the public is constantly kept confused as to what is going on. Either people believe
that the hacking crap is just those silly leftists throwing a temper tantrum because they "lost" the "election", or they buy the Russia-is-the-bad-guy
propaganda hook, line and sinker or
...perhaps most alarming of all...people really believe that somehow Trump being elected has averted war and
we don't need to worry about Russia as any type of threat.
I cannot count of how many times I have seen people smugly dismiss concerns about the continued focus on Russia right here on ATS. Everything is fine
now, you see, because Putin told everyone that if Hillary won, war was a certainty. Well, ding dong the witch is dead, yeah? And war was averted; all
hail the oompa loompa, because he and Mr Putin are super cool buddies. Just a couple of regular guys who get along great.
Except...Donald Trump is not a king and this is not a monarchy or a dictatorship. He doesn't have the final say, nor should he; he's not even in
office yet. Our actual President, Barack Obama, is still calling the shots...and people conveniently forget that. They forget it to such a degree that
they openly mock everything he says and does. They openly mock his wife and kids. It's open season on the entire family, and they're not waiting for
him to leave office first. They are that smug and confident that since their candidate "won", it's OK to be complacent again.
Putin may indeed have said that if Hillary became POTUS, there would be a war. But I don't recall reading anything about him saying that if Trump got
elected, the possibility of war would no longer exist, do you? Hyperbole and propaganda work both ways and, more often than not, go hand in hand with
Meanwhile, the actual President of the United States is still working. Still making decisions. Making changes. His numerous detractors translate all
of this to an attempt to leave Trump with a big, annoying mess to clean up. Those silly Obamas; just look at them, trying to make life difficult for
old Mini Mitts Magoo once he takes office, pouting because their good buddy Hillary didn't win the "election" and they're super salty about it,
Wrong. They're not crying over Hillary "losing", because they have her good friend Donald Trump. Putin's good buddy. A special new (s)elected leader,
who was able to successfully pull the wool over the eyes of millions of people when their other choice could not seem
to. Hook. Line.
He's not hiding it either. Rather, he's flaunting it; very publicly reneging on campaign promises, while making yet more of them, and he's not even
been inaugurated yet. He is putting on the performance of his life...and he is scarily good at it.
As I've said before (and shouldn't have had to), these so-called elite are not even remotely stupid...and they are Legion. All of them are playing a
part and setting the stage. You say they've been planning this for years. I think they've been planning it for decades and decades. Either way, if
they're planning it, they are not going to leave anything open to chance. They're in it to win it, and the only concern they have with the American
people is keeping them hanging by a string and totally preoccupied with "leaked" information, teasing promises of all the answers people are so
thirsty for, always held just out of reach.
Meanwhile, they've got Handsy McGrabberton playing his very important role to such a degree that the nation is teetering on the thin edge of
irreparable division, making sure it will not only remain that way, but get even worse. They chose him because if it had been anyone else, people
would have been all over it like white on rice...especially the ones who do things like question the validity of our President's birth certificate or
search through thousands of "leaked" emails, looking for any and every shred of evidence of possible wrongdoing. That's actually why they tossed all
that crap out there in the first place; they wanted to see what the public reaction would be, how many people would turn on Hillary and every person
who even hinted at possibly supporting her.
They knew she would be vilified and demonised. They did a very careful job of making people despise her. They made her appear frail and sickly, old
and befuddled. They made certain that she would be the very last person the nation wanted...and then they played their Trump card.
Corrupt, war mongering, doddering old lady with the entire government and all of the media in her pantsuit pocket who lies like a rug and can't even
walk up the stairs unassisted, versus a mega-rich celebrity showman who isn't afraid to talk smack about the system or the people within its ranks and
promises safety, comfort and an end to the corruption; a big, blustery hero who is going to make America great again. They knew that his followers
would hang on his every word and overlook anything he did or said, no matter how outrageous or shocking or morally defunct. And when people were
reticent about trusting him, they sealed the deal by making it appear that he single-handedly averted nuclear war with Russia...something that is
guaranteed to strike fear in the hearts of most Americans.
The people wanted him, and they got him. His devoted acolytes protect him like he's the second coming of Jesus, viciously pouncing on anyone who is
bold enough to criticize him or his words or his actions. They even defend his open mockery of them, make excuse after excuse for his behavior. I have
no pity for them. They should have led with basic common sense rather than their emotions.
But there are also a great number of people who have no idea they're being played, and those who truly believed they had no other choice...they're
right, of course; votes do not actually matter, but they don't realize that. Those are the people I feel sorry for...the ones who didn't ask for this,
but got it anyway. People like my parents and many of my friends. They'll blame themselves, when in reality, they have nothing to do with the
If they want a war, and I believe that they do, they'll get one. Nothing has been averted. Delayed, maybe. A detour, to appease the people and cause
them to let their guard down. To feel safe, secure, comfortable...all of the things Trump is promising.
In addition to thinking that our President and his administration, along with the entirety of the "left" are stupid, people seem to think Vladimir
Putin is stupid as well. He's not. He doesn't really say much...but it's always the quiet ones that people need to watch out for. He knows what
they're up to, and he knows they're running a scam on the American people too, because he has said it, and more than once.
He has also stated emphatically that he is in possession of a weapon that has the capability of rendering anything and everything deployed against his
country utterly useless...and I believe him. I think the people running the show believe him too, so I don't see us attacking him directly. It'll be
some other provocation that'll give them an excuse, which I believe they're now setting the stage for.
It is chilling, the parallels between your source info and what is unfolding right now. Regardless of any personal politics, if we go to war, it will
affect all of us.
