“We assess Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the U.S. presidential election. Russia’s goals were to undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency. We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump.” – National Security Report released Friday, Jan. 6.
These are the conclusions of the national security agencies we have watching out for the best interests of the United States and its citizens. The fact that they cannot see the truth for the thick veil of propagandistic drivel they are offering at the behest of the lame-duck Obama administration should surprise no one.
So, let me be clear. If there was, indeed, Russian influence in the election, it most certainly had nothing to do with Donald J. Trump and everything to do with Hillary R. Clinton. In fact, Trump gave Putin three very significant reasons not to support his campaign. First, Trump advocates for more drilling in the United States, thereby increasing our energy independence. This will hurt Russia as a player in the oil markets.
Second, Trump advocates expanding and strengthening our military. And third, which goes hand-in-hand with the second, is Trump’s desire to increase our nuclear arsenal rather than continuing a draw-down. Any one of the three Trump initiatives, for which Clinton was on the opposite side, would have been enough to guarantee Russia’s opposition to his candidacy.
Russia’s preference, clearly, was anyone but Hillary. And if they used influence to affect the election in the United States, it was not by hacking voting machines or threatening voters to change their ballot. They simply used the words of Clinton, John Podesta, and the DNC against themselves. What Putin and the Russians were able to expose in the actual emails was election rigging against Bernie Sanders, media collusion with the Clinton camp, and other election dirty dealings on behalf of the Democratic party.
And that’s where they got their feelings hurt. Just as a child throwing a tantrum would do, Clinton and her ilk immediately began pointing fingers and assessing blame. “The Russians did it,” they cried, and Obama’s security agencies added credibility to that statement with the recently released report. Why did the Russians do it, they pondered? Their official conclusion follows: “Putin most likely wanted to discredit Secretary Clinton because he has publicly blamed her since 2011 for inciting mass protests against his regime in late 2011 and early 2012, and because he holds a grudge for comments he almost certainly saw as disparaging him.”
Comical! Vladimir Putin, in spite of all of the policies that could potentially be detrimental to Russia espoused by Donald Trump, favored a Trump win for one clear reason – Trump will not follow the Obama/Clinton Islamic supremacist agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood, and will instead root out the hardline Islamic influence installed in the upper echelons of the United States government. Their toxic agenda to replace secular regimes throughout the Middle East with Islamic theocracies must be stopped before the globe is overrun by radical Islamic governments.
Putin has always been on the other side of that equation, viewing the foreign policy goals of Obama/Clinton as nothing short of disastrous for the world. And he’s absolutely correct in that assessment. While the Middle East is burning, Europe is on the fast track to the same fate. Eight years under Obama has put a similar transformation of the United States into hyper-drive. Four more years under Hillary Clinton would have sealed our fate.
It was in Putin’s and Russia’s best interest to reveal the dark agenda of Clinton and the DNC in the hopes of preserving one powerful ally against the Islamic onslaught. If it took revealing emails, the legitimacy of which have never been challenged, to inform the American public of the kind of candidate Hillary Clinton was, so be it.
The American public has spoken and the message was clear – “Enough! We want no more of the failed policies under Obama/Clinton!” It is now time to roll up our sleeves and try to repair our Republic. Jan. 20 cannot come soon enough!
