Russia-gate and Mueller Report points

Some of the arguments made here – as that of the impossibly brief time between the claimed receipt of hacked material and WikiLeaks’ publication, leaving no time for WikiLeaks to review many thousands of documents, something they always do – seem unassailable to me. It just could not happen that way.

Of course, we know from several independent experts in the recent past that the DNC material was unmistakably a leak, and not a hack, but the people in Washington, all busily promoting their various dark agendas, are not going to accept so simple and clarifying a fact.

The twists and turns in this whole story are just dizzying, as indeed they are meant to be. It is next to impossible to set out the full tale with proof which cannot be denied or contradicted by one side or the other.

Of course, that suggests a pattern, the pattern of intelligence operations.

And, of course, the United States, vis-à-vis the rest of the world, has been in the business of hiding what it is doing, spreading disinformation, and leaving confusion behind as it proceeds with its ferocious recent program of aggression. The Washington elites have all become practiced experts in it.

But now we can unmistakably see the same pattern being used inside the United States.

The United States never was, or even pretended to be, a democracy. Most of the Founders, being men of wealth and property, feared democracy. And in the course of America’s imperial march across the continent, democratic values and ethics never played any role. But this kind of activity, right at the heart of national political life, makes an even stronger statement.

It is a statement literally of the ruling establishment’s contempt for ordinary Americans and their right to have even the slightest understanding of events in which their government has been involved.

Just about every part of the power establishment has played a part in this – the corporate press, the Democrats, the Republicans, the FBI, the CIA, and loyal hangers-on like Britain’s MI6.

I see that as the key lesson to be learned from the entire set of events around “Russia-gate.” But I am equally sure that it will not come to be understood and absorbed into consciousness for the most part inside the United States.

The same forces will just continue their tug-of-war with all kinds of political posing and press noise that tells you almost nothing.

You see, that is simply the mentality of imperial rule.

The vicious struggle for renewed pre-eminence the United States has underway in the world – bombing in a dozen lands, supporting brutal dirty wars, assassinations, efforts to topple governments, including democratic ones, sanctions laid in every direction, new threats made weekly, and a ceaseless effort to impose American law everywhere (the essence of what Assange’s arrest really means) – simply leaves no room or inclination for honesty or openness in the imperial capital. Quite the opposite, indeed.

What a very sad state for America to have come to, but there cannot be the slightest doubt that it is the case. Every critically-minded person in the world not associated with, or benefitting from, the operation of America’s empire, understands this.
