Turn on the mainstream media and you may start to think that Putin has taken over the United States. His picture is everywhere. We're told that he rigged our elections. Yes, Hillary Clinton castigated anyone who dared breathe the words "rigged election". Such people were deserving of purgatory. But it's alright now, because she lost.
If Putin did rig the election, would it be crazy to ask for some semblance of proof? Any evidence whatsoever?
Tucker Carlson recently dared to ask for evidence but was instead told to take his show to RT!
At this point, there is no proof, but as our authoritarian neighbors like to say: "the science is settled".
Not only did Putin rig the election, he's also been secretly hiding a conjoined twin named Rex Tillerson. They'd have to be twins right? Turn on the TV and that's all that you're presented with: Vladimir Putin and Rex Tillerson.
Just in case you wisely cut the cord, this type of image is plastered everywhere:
Tillerson is being presented as Putin's double.
Tillerson has "ties" to Russia, and is "very close" with Putin, even "pals" with him. And now Tillerson has been nominated to be Trump's Secretary of State.
Putin-palooza has reached an even higher crescendo. The guy has a hot hand! First the election, and now this?
It's amazing that the media is just telling us about Putin & Tillerson now. After all, Tillerson has been the CEO of one of the biggest companies in the world. Why didn't the media ever warn us?
Why didn't they tell us that Putin has been virtually running Exxon all along? Were they too busy sending their articles to John Podesta for proof-reading?
Tillerson has also been donating money to both Republicans and Democrats. Does that mean Putin has been bankrolling our politicians by proxy?
Tillerson donated to Trump's opponents during the Republican primaries. He never donated a dime to Trump, which is odd because Putin obviously wanted Trump to win and even rigged the election for him.
Why did Tillerson break rank? Did Putin feel slighted by the betrayal?
It's all very confusing. Perhaps The Washington Post could straighten it all out for us. Then again...
Tillerson has met with many world leaders throughout his tenure at Exxon. That's what happens when you run a giant multi-national corporation. But the only meetings that matter (and the only meetings that everyone should focus on) are the one's with Putin.
Because it's Putin-palooza!
Americans are trained to always obsess over a villain. The military-industrial-complex didn't reach a budget of almost $1 Trillion per year by accident you know. There's a long line of villains who helped pave the way to that pile of money.
Trump may end up getting along with Russia, and let's hope he does. Confrontation with any nuclear power (including China) can't end well for anyone.
Let's just hope Trump doesn't trot out another villain for everyone to obsess over.
A break would be nice.
