Since we know -- at least those of us who are astute observers of the political and economic scene -- that no credible evidence points to the Kremlin interfering in the 2016 presidential election to favor Donald Trump, this indicates a faction of our elites is wholly intent on propagating this group think about Russia-gate.
Two elements of our ruling class are committed to this alarming narrative
The biggest purveyors are the establishment Democratic National Committee, along with television personality Rachel Maddow and other DNC sycophants at MSNBC, the New York Times, National Public Radio and the Washington Post. They cannot accept that Hillary Clinton, their repellent Wall Street warmongering candidate, lost to the deplorable Trump. Ergo, they must discredit President Trump's election at all costs.
The Washington militarists (both public and private entities) are the other alarmists. They make their promotions and budgets off the vilification of Moscow. These sociopaths were terrified when Trump advocated a rapprochement with Russia.
These two groups coalescing on this Russia-gate baloney is putting the world on the brink of nuclear war. How long will Moscow continue to be a stoic punching bag in the face of all the Western disinformation and provocations?
