Verity. Donald Trump will likely be one of the greatest Presidents of our republic. And Obama one of the most ineffectual. Meanwhile, Hillary apologists are trying to reconfigure the logic anent Trump’s appointees. They’ve nothing to say since abandoning the Russian hack bit.
- As a trial lawyer I’m rather fond of the notion that when one makes an accusation he bears the burden of proof. As to the suggestion that the election was hacked by Russia or Russian agents or Putin or Kremlin operatives, there has been absolutely no evidence whatsoever of such.
- Crazed Dems want to provoke war with Russia, claiming they launched an unproven cyber attack against the American franchise.
HERE’S HOW THE TED BAXTER SOCKPUPPET MEDIA WORK
“The dog ate my homework” is an English expression purported to be a favorite excuse made by schoolchildren explaining their failure to turn in an assignment on time. The claim of a dog eating one’s homework is inherently suspect since it is both impossible for a teacher to disprove and conveniently absolves the student who gives that excuse of any blame. Although suspicious, the claim is not absolutely beyond possibility since dogs are known to eat—or chew on—bunches of paper. It has grown beyond the educational context, becoming a sarcastic rejoinder to a similarly glib or otherwise insufficient or implausible explanation for a failure in any context.
(Insert any of the many stock pictures of Vladimir Putin’s atop his trusty steed.)
When you blame the dog for eating your homework, you are making a fool of yourself on so many levels. First, you are giving too much credit to the dog. Russian hackers couldn’t have pull this off because they simply could not, as in unable to. Look at all the recent Russian “spy” scandals – from poisoning of Litvinenko in London to Anna Chapman, and many in between. All were botched operations run by clowns with some FSB credentials. Second, you’re not offering any proof of hacking, except that what it led to was not to your liking. Chinese hackers – it’s a different story: CIA had located an actual building from which an organized group of hackers operated, Chinese spies get arrested at Los Alamos, FBI, etc. on a regular basis. These guys are no joke, whereas “the Russians” actually are. And thirdly, by blaming some remote and vaguely defined group of unknown people without any discernible motivation for hacking such a fundamental American institution as Presidential Election, you are undermining the institution itself. And if you are really concerned about the possibility of hacking the Elections, you should first take a hard look at the security of the system guarding it.
