I’ve been scarce around here lately.
It is because I have worked myself into a rage about the Pentagon and the “intelligence community.” It is because of stories like this one. I had to step away to think about my anger.
“The CIA reportedly plotted to kidnap Julian Assange, and some senior officials in the agency and the Trump administration allegedly went so far as to consider options for how to assassinate the WikiLeaks founder, Yahoo! News reported Sunday.
According to the report, then-director Mike Pompeo was apparently motivated to get even with Wikileaks following its publication of sensitive CIA hacking tools, which the agency found to be “the largest data loss in CIA history.”
Pompeo and others “were completely detached from reality because they were so embarrassed about Vault 7,” according to a former Trump national security official, referring to the document dump. “They were seeing blood.”
Additional CIA plans allegedly included “extensive spying on WikiLeaks associates, sowing discord among the group’s members, and stealing their electronic devices.” …”
Do you know what is so maddening about this? It is our lack of options.
These people control both parties. They can get away with anything including murdering people. They are rewarded for colossal failures like we saw with the 2022 NDAA. Above all else, you know that any effort to oppose or reform these corrupt institutions will be subverted by them with the media.
What do you do? Do you take your anger and go vote Republican and empower people who are angry that not enough money is being spent on the Pentagon and that American troops are not in Afghanistan? Do you vote for the Democrats knowing all that entails? Do you try to organize outside the system in which case “journalists” try to ruin you and feds are sent into your group to try to entrap you in bogus plots?
By voting for Donald Trump, we ended up with a dumpster fire of an administration which was full of people like Mike Pompeo. We empowered a group of Jewish gangsters who go around murdering people. The choice came down to either Mike Pompeo and John Bolton or the Democrats.
Note: The Pentagon and “intelligence community” deserve to be defunded and abolished.
