The Show Must Go On

Comey To Testify In Russia “Election Hacking” Hearing On March 20

The Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said he planned to hold a series of public hearings as part of its probe on Russian interference in the US election, beginning with a session on March 20. According to Reuters, among those invited to attend are listed below:

FBI Director James Comey
NSA Director Mike Rogers
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper,
Former CIA Director John Brennan
Former acting Attorney General Sally Yates
Two executives from CrowdStrike, the cybersecurity company originally investigating the DNC hacks and which first “found” Russian involvement.

Nice they’re having a hearing on something that is a heap of dung – but when one is in the business of misinforming the American public, creating bogie men around every corner and amping up mistrust of other countries in order to continue their destructive wars –  the show must go on.

Also invited to testify will be Meryl Streep, who will demand that the House of Chanel make her another dress that she’ll reject; Barbra Streisand, who will serve pancakes, smothered in maple syrup; along with the entire cast of SNL who will offer up their usual humorless sketches.

Blinking, red neon “chuckle”, “quiet sighs” and “gasp” signs will be visible throughout the chamber, so that those who were paid to attend the charade can make the televised Hearing seem authentic, suggesting to viewers that they’re watching something that is really, really, really important.

The following Marx Brothers skit from “Duck Soup”, will be broadcast during invitees latte/chai breaks:


Villainc“Officials” from the CIA will demonstrate how their latest techniques are used to make cyber attacks appear as if they’re coming from Russia. There will be hearty handshakes and slaps on the back, congratulating themselves on their uncanny ability to break laws and circumvent accountability for the trail of stench they heap upon the world and never spend a day in jail for.

The usual main stream media talking heads will dutifully lie, misrepresent and argue issues that weren’t presented, with pharmaceutical commercials peppered throughout the broadcast, trying to convince people to down a vat of chemicals whose side effects are worse than the ailment one is trying to remedy.

Nothing will come of this. Anything of substance that could be discussed won’t be because, after all, it’s all incredibly, super-duper top secret. The invitees and politicians will slither out to their luxurious armored redoubts in Washington, D.C., where you certainly won’t find any refugees being looked after, content that the charade will continue, with the American public lied to, spied on, used and abused.  No jail time for these criminals who break the laws…that’s reserved for we, the law-abiding taxpayers. Sadly, half or more of the American public will believe their nonsense.

So, to sum up…
