There is a whole lot of talk about loyalty as of late. Godfather and Nixon references are bantered about and everyone wants to know who is loyal to who. However, nobody seemed to care about loyalty when carried former President Barack Obama’s water. As far as I can tell, the mainstream media was not too concerned about loyalty to the Democrat Party when former President Bill Clinton boarded that plane with on that tarmac in Arizona. And there was damn sure no concern about loyalty when a border guard was killed because Eric Holder flooded Mexico with firearms in . Nope, loyalty seems to be very subjective.
Perhaps we should speak of the loyalty of the liberal mainstream media to the Democrat Party? Perhaps not? I mean that subject matter might illuminate the hypocritical nonsense that is the news today. Maybe we should talk about the loyalty that the press has to the Constitution and the first amendment? But again, that might kick up some feathers. So what other loyalty should we fixate on?
Well, let’s talk about President Donald Trump and his loyalty to General Flynn. Even after he let the man go, the president still went to bat for this guy. So why? Why did he try to protect this man? By all accounts, he lied to the vice president and to others about his Russian contacts. But why did he lie? I do not know the answer to that but I respect Trump’s loyalty for the guy.
So, what should we know about Russia? I do know that Russia’s markets, banks, and quasi-capitalism are attracting many people, investors, and even countries. The money is there for the taking and the world is taking it. Whether it is China, the Trump Family or General Flynn, the money is there to be made. Ignoring this fact is like getting mad at a compass for pointing North. Grabbing it is not treason and it is certainly not a crime.
Now, what did we learn from this Hearing? We learned Donald Trump was never under FBI investigation of any kind. We learned Hilary Clinton was in fact under criminal investigation. We learned Comey then lied to the public at the behest of Attorney General Lynch and called the whole thing a “matter” in front of the nation. We also learned that the former head of the FBI is also one of the leakers, leaking stuff to the mainstream media. We learned on Comey’s first meeting with Trump, Comey asked everyone in the room to leave and then talked to Donald alone. We learned that when Donald on another day asked everyone in the room to leave to talk to Comey alone, the press then attached an inappropriate behavior mantra to Trump, but said nothing of the fact Comey started this alone in the room kind of thing. In the end, we learned that Washington D.C. is still completely disconnected from Americans who are still waiting for their tax cuts, healthcare and infrastructure projects.
