Who’s watching our watchers? Who’s leading our leaders?
The email hacking and questionable connections should have been a bi-partisan concern BEFORE the election. No one American political party should have been comfortable with another party being hacked. Moreover, if information was being leaked about only ONE party, what would be the motivation, other than to tarnish that party and candidate?
Rational thinkers would welcome investigations against any actions that are against America and American people & policies. When your prejudices and blind party allegiances and propaganda clouds clear thinking about dangers that could bite you, you might need to question if party should trump humanity. When fake news & unfounded rumors get touted as truth, you should be concerned. When leaders praise the intelligence community when they fall in king, but disparage them when they question information (as they should), you should be questioning the intent of the critic.
When our intelligence community confirms there is cause for concern, but a private citizen — who has access to, but selectively participates in critical. briefings (only a handful of people have access) — declines, because they don’t think their important, you should wonder from whom they get their intelligence. It’s not a game or an opt-out like if you don’t want to receive promotional information from the local store.
Media should have been on a full-court press about these ties, questionable staff ties and much more, but they have failed the citizenry. They have operated as the prey instead of the information hunters. They have been guilted and bullied into submission and that is a headlines grabbing shame all by itself. Be aware, not gullible, people. Don’t be sheeple.
