American Paranoia Part 2: American “Innocence” Vs. A World of Enemies

That big snore you hear in exceptional-land signals the end of the road for Russia-gate. When asked, only 1% of the America public believe the Russian caper was a major problem. The enemies most Americans care about are skyrocketing health costs, stagnant wages, life-time student loans, rising interest rates, crumbling infrastructure and the climate change-caused rain and fire destroying huge swaths of the “homeland.” Russia-gate has fallen out of the top ten. Even predictions of a coming Armageddon aren’t cutting much ice. This sorry state of affairs prompted leaders of America’s intelligence agencies to hold a group sing-a-long touting “new evidence” that “Russia continues to engage in malign operations” (as per usual no evidence to support that claim). if you read last week’s article American Paranoia: They’re Out to Get us, you know that even scaredy-cat Americans aren’t buying the hype. To find out how D.C. elites and their media buddies hope to reverse the Russia-gate death spiral, don’t miss American Paranoia Part 2: American “Innocence” Vs. A World of Enemies.

American Paranoia: You-Know-Who Is Out to Get Us

Who can forget the Iraq WMD caper when everyone (who was anybody) knew that we were in the crosshairs of a dangerous demagogue. That was then, this is now and the stakes are considerably higher, the threat of nuclear war considerably graver. Games of chicken have a nasty habit of turning on their creators. We try to distinguish the forest from the trees in this article.

Robert Mueller: The Man and the Myth

Who is Robert Mueller really? The avuncular gentleman pictured virtually every night on the mainstream media looking determined and resolute. Or someone else? You may think “Asked and Answered” if you read SA’s initial post on him way back on June 26, 2017 “The Two Bags of Robert Mueller. But there’s more to the story. Appointed FBI Director by Republican Prez George W. in 2001 (one week before 9/11), and remaining in that post through two Bush terms and the first term of Republican-light (Democrat) President Obama, he has finally made it into big-time stardom with his present gig —Special Prosecutor —taking on the mantle of the great hope of establishment democrats and LINOs (liberals in name only) still licking their (mostly self-inflicted) wounds after the drubbing they took in 2016.
