The American Congressional Hearings on Russian Hacking….
Rep. Adam Schiff, a Democrat who represents Burbank, CA (read film industry here) has long been a thorn in the side of President Trump, and is leading the witch hunt into the matter of the Russian’s hacking of Americans, including the Democratic party during the campaign. Shiff’s a little upset that the millions of dollars the court jesters poured into defeating Trump did little good. I’m sure his backers are whining so loudly he can hear little else.
Okay, the Russians hacked us, while we hacked them, and Zimbabwe and 134 other countries in the world hacked each other. We live in interesting times: don’t say it, don’t email it, if you don’t want it known. And what was the horrid result of the Russian hacking? The truth, that’s what. The TRUTH! Did the Russians hack into voting machines and change the results? That’s long been proved false. Had that been the case then these hearings would have some merit.
I’d much rather have all these employees of the people doing their jobs…fine tuning and approving the health care act, getting a new Justice seated in the supreme court, and on and on. But Congressmen and Senators love to splatter their faces on our TV screens, mostly to try and impress us with their sagacity and assure their reelection by doing so. And they don’t a bit mind not doing their real work while doing so.
What we’ll see for days is Republicans and Democrats sparing and trying to impress their donors and prove their worth. Ladies and gentlemen of Congress, the country would be better served if you got your ass back to work.
Among the many topics of the current hearings are our relationship with you Brits. And so far it seems we will continue to have our 250 years of good relationships. If there’s one thing Brits should like about Trump, if you like your own political system, is Trump’s resemblance to your own House of Commons. God knows, Trump is a common man, if straight talking is the essence of one.
