MY CORNER by Boyd Cathey
Fox News, Rosenstein, Senators Schumer, Burr, Graham and Warner, et al All Say It: The Russkies are Out to Conquer Lizard Lick, NC, and that Little Community is Only Five Miles from Me!! Oh My! Where Can I Hide?
Every few months the Neocon, Russophobic zealots at Fox News trot out the failed billionaire, former Russian oligarch wannabe, Bill Browder (grandson of American Communist Party chief Earl Browder) to recount just how evil that Vladimir Putin really is—you see, Putin, quoth Browder, “had his lawyer Sergei Magnitsky killed.” [For details on this Browder scoundrel, please see: “A Blacklisted Film and the New Cold War,” https://consortiumnews.com/2017/08/02/a-blacklisted-film-and-the-new-cold-war/ “The Magnitsky Hoax,” http://www.unz.com/pgiraldi/the-magnitsky-hoax/; and https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/02/01/meet-corrupt-billionaire-who-has-brought-about-new-cold-war.html]
No doubt ole’ Vlad has gone around the globe and personally assassinated his political enemies even in the farthest corners of the world. Why, he probably had something to do with the killing of Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King, don’t you know. Vlad was too young—only a 16 year teenager at the time? Never mind…back in 1968 he still was capable of such acts, because, as Fox News along with all the other farther Left Media tell us, he is “evil incarnate,” the second-coming of Adolf Hitler, maybe even Satan himself (oops! I forgot…the Mainstream Media doesn’t belief in Satan…well, that’s okay, if there ever was going to be one, we have him now behind those icy Kremlin walls! And even as a young teenager we can blame Putin!).
Of course, most of the Neocons at Fox have now jumped on the Trump bandwagon, conveniently, and the reasons as I have explained previously in various columns and articles, have to do with power and attempting to shape the president’s foreign policy. In this they—unlike those consistent Never Trumper Neocons (e.g., Max Boot, Bill Kristol, George Will, etc. ad nauseum)—are essentially dishonest. They don’t really agree with Donald Trump’s stated views on foreign policy; rather they see him, and the ability to ingratiate themselves with him, as an opportunity to influence his policies, turn them, even if ever so slightly, towards their own views and globalist objectives. Thus, they couch their foaming-at-the-mouth Russophobia in terms of—“President Trump is going to really get into it with Putin!” “The Donald will hand Putin’s head to him on a platter!” Or, Ms. Lindsey Graham’s plea—“Mr. President, go into that meeting with Vlad and tell him where to go, where to get off, that we KNOW what you’ve been doing!”
And then come those addenda about “stopping the invasion of Ukraine,” “get out of Crimea,” “stop propping up Assad in Syria,” etc. That’s the narrative that Graham and the Neocons have impressed on Trump that he simply must present to Putin.
It is all what some less polite friends of mine would term “BS,” but those are words my English professor mother taught me never to use in civil conversation, which I trust this is. In short, for anyone who has read the actual literature—and not just absorbed the manure spread around by such palpable Fox airheads as Brian Kilmeade or Ainsley Earhardt—the continued spectacle is rather nauseating.
The latest little jab came yesterday with the ah-so-not-fortuitous announcement by that paragon of Department of Justice professional probity and apolitical correctness, Rod Rosenstein, that the DOJ had indicted 12 more Russkies on attempts to “interfere” with our 2016 elections….I pause now to collect my breath at this startling announcement, occurring as it did just two days before the Putin-Trump summit in Helsinki. Of course, none of those 12 is in the US, they are all living peacefully in Russia, farming out in Tula or working as cab drivers in Smolensk. In short, it is kinda like Old Abe Lincoln and his much-touted “Emancipation Proclamation” (you know, the second most important document in US history after the Declaration of Independence) which did not free one slave, as it ONLY applied to areas NOT under Yankee control, while leaving all those areas with slavery UNDER YANKEE control like Kentucky, Maryland, Delaware, and Missouri untouched. Rosenstein knows full well that his “determination” (which I submit, again, is based on very dubious “data” collected by our completely impartial [sic!!] “intelligence agencies”) has no practical effect…except that it continues to fuel the rabid Russophobia of the Democrats (who used to love the Russkies when Communism ruled the roost) and their partners in crime, the Neocons, who deeply, in the depths of their dark souls, continue to suspect that Putin and his traditionalist Christian supporters are secret anti-semites who want to put them into concentration camps and reinstitute those bad old Tsarist pogroms.
And what is even more curious about this: it’s basically the same list that was actually made available back earlier this year, in February—it really isn’t new at all! Except that back then the media and the Russophobes did not have the same reason to use it like now, just before the Helsinki Summit! Funny how these things just aren't “news” until the media decides to make them “news” [see: http://russiafeed.com/breaking-robert-mueller-indicts-13-russians-russian-entities-conspiracy-charges/]
Of course, the totality of the Democratic Party immediately pounced: “Mr. Trump [they don’t want to call him “president” because they still hope that Mueller can find something, anything, to rid them of him] cancel that meeting,” say Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and Mark Warner.
Oh, and that Warner is another pol who obviously had a complete, “invasion-of-the-body-snatchers” lobotomy at an early age…but I forgot, he and North Carolina’s senior US senator, Republican Deep Stater Richard Burr are buddy-buddy, and both have canonized and “authenticated” similar “results” about those evil Russkies (information provided by our sterling white, non-political Intelligence services—yeah, right, and let me sell you a plot of land, an oil well, in my back yard—for just a few mil). You know, back in 1861 Virginia and North and South Carolina were models of true patriotism and constitutional probity. That they are now represented in the US Senate by such—be careful, Boyd, what you are about to call these politicos—“individuals” as Senators Graham, Tim Scott, Burr, and Warner assuredly has our ancestors rolling over at breakneck speed in their graves. And doesn’t say much about the rapidly descending spiral of intelligence and rationality among our citizens….
I invite you to go back and read some of the previous items on this topic now on my blog; I don’t feel like continuing to re-invent the wheel when the media and the political Deep State are engaged in endless bouts of lunatic hysteria, slinging those dried cow pies right and left to somehow solidify the narrative of those evil Russkies and that new Satan, ur, Hitler, residing in the Kremlin.

In this vein, I pass on another piece of sharp irony (and scathing parody) by our friend noted author C. J. Hopkins. Hopkins has a tongue and pen even more wicked than I have…My mother might have corrected some of his language, too.
