Abe Lincoln said: You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.
Back then, they didn’t have polls, and he apparently had a higher opinion of us plebes than our owners have today.
They have the NSA to monitor our reactions and our opinions, and, sad to say, they have apparently concluded that they can lie with impunity and enough people will swallow it that they can carry on.
Case in point: Adam Schiff.
But there are enough of us out here who can not be fooled that they are calling for censorship and bans. Good for us.
It is up to us to spread anti-foolishness around as much as we can before they stomp us out.
As someone who actually has been familiar with Russia and its policies, I see very clearly Schiff and his apologists are likely the most serious threat to the US, not Russia, China or Iran. In fact, none of those countries have made any threatening policies or gestures towards the US. By turning fact and reality upside down, with the help of the corporate media, the Schiff’s of the government are the most serious threat to the country we since we.faced than the last time invasion, in 1812 when the British actually invaded.
Russia, for much of US history, was the most consistent friend of the US. On the other hand, the UShas invaded Russia 4 times in history, we have been anything but a friend. So Russia is used to being the target of US political ambitions, so reacts little or not at all. There is hardly a mention of the voluminous false claims by the US in Russian press or political discourse. They are used to it and ignore it is just the US, like an impetuous child, simply throwing a fit. But the destabilizing and aggressive chiactions by the US keep inceasing and eventually, the child will have to be spanked. Russia and its partners, like China, have been taken steps to reduce the impact of the tantrums by moving away from use of the dollar in trade settlement. Apparently Europe is taking notice and doing the same so trade between the EU and China and Russia will be in local currencies.
If more Americans traveled they would learn how unpopular their government’s policies are and how harmful they are to world peace and even trust in the US. But Americans do not communicate with people in foreign lands, even if they take vacations to tourist destinations, few ever talk with anyone who is not paid to entertain them.
The march to war, the only possible end result of the Schiff faction policies and propaganda, is well understood by Russia and China and both have made significant improvements in thei defense capabilities. The only player in the march to war who have not addressed defense is the US, and that probably is due to the unspoken understanding in Washington that Russia and China are not focused on offense. All their advanced systems are defensive in nature, while none of the US systems are defensive, as if the US never has to worry about retaliation.
