Welcome to The Daily Wrap Up, a concise show dedicated to bringing you the most relevant independent news, as we see it, from the last 24 hours.
As has been the case over the past few weeks, the FISA memo has largely eclipsed pretty much everything else. And even if these claims are true, which we do yet know for certain, this is no doubt being used to carry out many other agendas while the American public is yet again consumed by the US political drama.
So first, let’s address the one glaring point that most are ignoring in this memo frenzy, and that is the fact that this memo contains statements with no corroborating material. So why is it that so many are so quick to assume it is all true? If the memo ended up claiming that Trump and Russia had colluded to steal the election from Hillary Clinton (a fact that we know is not true) would you still be so quick to take it at face value? Of course not. So why do it now?
It is because, first of all, that it supports many claims that we all know to be generally true — such as the government illegally spying on Americans. And second, because it supports the idea that Trump is the victim here, and not just another puppet of the corporate oligarchy. We all want to believe that there is a savior who will whisk us away to a better America, but that is a fantasy not based in reality, especially not in the hyper-controlled American political system — sorry to burst your bubble, but we have to be realistic with ourselves. Even if he was that savior, one man would not make a dent in the establishment war-machine. We must being to realize, once again, that we are the true power here, not one of the preselected candidates within the two-party deception.
That being said, this does not mean that the claims of corruption within the FBI and DOJ are not true, we know they are. This only means that there is no excuse to simply take the word of a politician at face value, which is what everyone is doing. With all we know today, that is just irresponsible.
Assuming that these claims are true, the real point here is that the FBI knowingly withheld information about the DNC and the Clinton campaign in regard to the Steele Dossier, and the fact that Steele was not a trustworthy source, when submitting their FISA application. The falsifying of evidence, withholding information and even manipulating evidence at hand to suit their agenda are all things we know about the FBI, especially after the recently dismissed Bundy trail, in which the FBI did just that, and no FBI agent was ever held accountable.
Many are claiming that this is the final nail in Clinton’s coffin, the revelation that finally sees her brought down. Now as I want to see her brought to justice more than anyone, we have to admit that this does not reveal anything we did not already know about her. If you could make the connection that Clinton made the FBI withhold the information about Steele, that would be a bombshell, but right now, this is about the corruption of the FBI. But that does not mean I am suggesting Clinton should be free to go. Not at all. As I have said many times in the past, we already have more than enough to lock her up, yet she continues to avoid any type of accountability.
At the end of the day, this is nothing new. The government is corrupt. Anyone honest with themselves can admit that we have known all of this for a long time. I want to see all them in jail for their abuse of American trust, and I will not be happy until they are actually behind bars, regardless of how many unsubstantiated memos are released. However, if our own recent history is any indication, that does not seem very likely.
As long as the US carries out open-ended war across the world, in your name, under false pretenses; as long as the Federal Reserve and its controlling entities still exist; as long as our very Constitutional rights are dissolved at home under some flimsy and never-ending excuse of a war on terror that was created by the US’ own imperialism abroad, we know that the ruling class still holds sway over the theater we call US politics – Donald Trump included. I want to believe in a positive future as much as anyone, and I was more than willing to give him a hopeful chance in the beginning, yet we have had more than enough reason, and more than enough flip-flops, to see that we have been fooled, again.
As always, I can admit that it is possible that this memo may be the start of “the storm” and that all of this has been some long con to get them just where he wanted them, and those indictments that we have heard about for so long (that many had forgotten about them) will finally be enforced, and America will be great once again… sure, that is possible, but I do not let blind hope dictate my path, I need more than faith, I need facts. I need evidence. I need results.
I always hold out hope for that which many take on faith, but as civilians are killed at unprecedented rates around the world at the behest of the very man who ran his campaign as the non-interventionist candidate, I am very doubtful. I just don’t see how that plays into “the plan.”
