There were two relatively minor incidents that took place earlier this summer which are now being used by both the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Obama administration to call for increased federal control over the election process – as well as a possible means of delegitimizing an election outcome should that outcome declare Donald Trump the winner.
NBC, CNN, and the New York Times have led the recent magnification of the election hacking story based upon a months-old hack of a board of election site, and a failed hack of another. That is not to say such a hack does not warrant attention, but rather, it is the subsequent media spin of these events that has tipped the proverbial hand of the Clinton-Obama motivation.
The basic gist is this – Russia doesn’t want to see Hillary Clinton elected.
The problem with that story, though, is why wouldn’t Russia want Hillary Clinton to be president? During her tenure as Secretary of State, Russia’s power and influence across the globe increased considerably, as did Putin’s standing as a geopolitical broker of sorts.
Add to this the strong ties the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton have to rather dubious business dealings with the Russians. Logic demands the likely scenario of the Russians holding considerable sway over Hillary Clinton via information she likely does not wish to see be made fully public.
And there is this theory now floating about among some alternative media circles:
The Russians are trying to catch the Democrats in the act of committing election fraud – the very fraud alleged to have taken place to some degree or other the previous two elections that had counties with more votes counted than registered voters, and districts where not a single vote was cast for the Republican candidate.
If such corrupt election practices did in fact take place before, does anyone believe someone like Hillary Clinton does not intend to repeat that corruption to ensure her own victory in November?
So imagine now the Clinton campaign worried the hacking of the board of election sites might prevent them from fully utilizing their election fraud machinery. Perhaps they can instead use those hacks, should Hillary lose in November, to raise the very claim of election fraud the Clintons planned to carry out themselves!
Think that scenario too far-fetched?
Then you haven’t been paying attention.
These people have never played fair.
They only play to win.
Did you see this headline from today showing how Barack Obama is preparing to take over the tallying of votes?
