In the Twilight Zone of 2017 America, it’s official that leftists and Democrats are welcoming with open arms their newest ally and flame bearer in the war on Russia, Donald Trump, and what they have convinced themselves Trump and Putin stand for. The new hero? Dick Cheney.
No, this is not a joke. The alleged arch enemy of the left, Darth Cheney himself, has joined the right wing cavalry of neo-cons and Republicans coming to the aid of leftists, and Democrats who are pushing the discredited narrative of “Russian hacking” and “tampering with American elections.”
Cheney, echoing John McCain, stated that Russia’s alleged hacking was an “act of war” and predicted that we would see more of “this kind of conduct and activity” going forward. Of course, in the senile and compulsive minds of McCain and Cheney, every act is an act of war.
Still, despite being a man with no heart or pulse (both literally and figuratively), Cheney traveled all the way to New Delhi to attend the Economic Times’ Global Business Summit 2017 where he gave a speech in which he addressed the Russian narrative. Cheney repeatedly cast the unproven and discredited accusations against Russia and Putin as a shot across the bow to America and evidence that Russia is slowly trying to destroy the United States. “There’s no question there was a very serious effort made by Mr. [Vladimir] Putin and his government, his organization, to interfere in major ways with our basic fundamental democratic processes,” he said.
“In some quarters, that would be considered an act of war. I think it’s a kind of conduct and activity we will see going forward. We know he’s attempted it previously in other states in the Baltics,” he added.
Cheney also stated that, “Another aspect of Mr. Putin’s conduct is the issue that is now very much in the headlines at home, and that has to do with cyber warfare, cyberattack on the United States – the fact that he took his capabilities in the cyber area and used it to try to influence our election.”
Leftists and Democrats are, of course, eating up Cheney’s words as if they somehow prove their idiotic neo-McCarthyistic fantasies regarding Russian hacking and visions of Putin marching across Europe to establish the Fourth Reich. Regardless of Trump’s rhetoric, campaign, and presidency, (he has shown little signs that he is willing to actually buck the Deep State system beyond a few half-clever quips at press conferences) it should be noted that Clintonistas and neo-cons publicly united in opposition to his presidential run and that they now publicly appear to be united against his presidency. Whether or not this opposition is merely theatre remains to be seen but, for now, it is clear to all that it at least exists in terms of appearance. For that reason, it puts the neo-cons and the Dems on the same side. If it’s theatre, well . . . that puts them on the same side anyway. You can easily see where I am going with this.
But today the veil has been lifted just a little more and what those of us who are guided by our principles already knew has been revealed to the world; i.e. that the Clintonistas and Democratic party are absolutely identical to the Cheney neo-cons and Republicans. They are not two opposing parties. They are two peas in a pod.
In terms of policy there is no difference whatsoever. Over the last two decades, neo-con/neo-liberal policies have been introduced by both Republican and Democrat administrations with only changes in the presentation – hamfisted idiocy and “conservatism” under Bush and “hope and change” messianism with Obama. At the heart of the matter, however, was the fact that both parties are nothing more than subsidiary brands of the same American oligarchy controlled by Corporations, Wall Street, Secret Societies, the intelligence community and the Deep State apparatus. The fact that the two leading figures for the parties – Dick Cheney and Hillary Clinton – are virtually identical on the vast majority of their policies should, therefore, not be surprising.
Leftists, however, should embark on a mission of soul searching since, in a period of a few short years, they went from blaming the CIA for Iraq and painting Dick Cheney as evil personified (fair enough) to becoming the biggest and loudest cheerleaders for the CIA and completely in line with Dick Cheney’s rhetoric.
Such a switch in political loyalties, morals, ethics, and general awareness should serve as a warning against further decision-making based on emotion and anger rather than logic and principles. The emotional pawns who succumb to making decisions based on temporary emotions are just that – unwitting pawns constantly passed back and forth amongst ideologies and groups using their talent and energy to form something that benefits only the oligarchy. Unfortunately, we should probably just expect and entrenching of the Clinton-Cheney, Republican-Democrat cognitive dissonance that has shown no signs of abating anytime soon.
