Continuing my posts on the coming Seldon Crisis you maybe wondering why I have a picture of a Matryoshka Doll.
Well it is simple, when dealing with Russian activities in the The Great Game it is best to look for plots nested in plots, and nested in plots. Just as a matryoshka doll is nested. I use the phase “The Great Game” because it dates back to 19th Russian Empire and to reminded us that this nesting of plots is a Russian thing, not just a Communist tactic. Even as I write this an accused Russian Agent has had her request for bail denied.
Even if we find that Donald Trump is comprised by Putin. Or even if it is just his business that are in tangled and he ‘knew nothing’ about it. Even if NRA didn’t ‘know’ where the large bundles of money came from that the then passed on to campaigns, we need to keep in mind that it may go deeper. We must always remember that Russians are past masters of indirection and we must ask what don’t they want us to see.
So, once we cleanup the problems of the 2016 election. Once we take steps to end the penetration of our elections by foreign nationals. Once we deal with the problem of ‘dark money’ we must remember we haven’t found everything. We must continue to be vigilant for new and inventive ways people who do not have the best interests of the USA at hard will continue to take control of OUR elections.
Finally, once we have identified those people who are responsible for these malignant attacks and the people who pulled their strings we must make sure they know it is not acceptable and the pice they have to pay is unacceptable to them. We must show ourselves and the world just what it means to tamper, in anyway, our elections. We hold our elections inviolable. We have payed too high a price in blood and tears to ever let anyone corrupt or control them.
In this we are not Democrats, or Republicans, or any political party. This goes beyond partisan politics, this goes to just what it means to be Americans.
So I ask you now:
“Who here is an American?”
