I was on board at the time with the analyses of Scott Ritter and Hans Blix concerning weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Most other liberal Democrats were as well, and opposed the specious warmongering policies of Dubya and Cheney. The likes of me and Scott Ritter have maintained our standards and are unafraid to call out Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for now being the same kind of barbarous warmongers that Bush and Cheney were. Unfortunately, most liberal Democrats have deliberately chosen to be hypocrites and support party and personality rather than to uphold consistent standards. Sorry, Democrats, though you may presently have most of your base fooled with your totally contrived narrative of “Russia Gate,” that will not last forever. The facts are out there. They can be accessed and disseminated. The day will come when it becomes politically expedient to expose you and your conspirators. The books and scholarly papers by history professors will eventually be written and this whole sorry affair will exposed for what it is. The collusion between the media, the politicos and the corporate money that buys the services of both will also come to light to the detriment of all. Then you will only have yourselves to blame when your party is rejected by the voters for an even longer stretch of time than might have been had you remained honest. YOU gave us Trump, not Russia or Putin. And you will probably end up giving us Pence or whoever succeeds Trump because of your dishonesty… and your willingness to exploit war for political gain. Mustn’t forget that.
