Democrats and the media have made much of FBI allegations that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election (though evidence has been in short supply). Whether or not it’s true, you kind of have to laugh at the outrage considering the fact that the country that interferes the most in the internal affairs of other nations, including coups and invasions, is none other than the United States of America.
WikiLeaks published purloined emails by Democratic National Committee staffers that show that DNC staff conspired on behalf of Hillary Clinton to deny Bernie Sanders the Democratic nomination. WikiLeaks says they got the material from a disgruntled DNC staffer. But Democrats like Clinton blame Russia, and say the revelations cost her the election against Trump. They want you to focus on casting blame for the leak as opposed to the content of the leak.
NSA whistleblower Reality Winner leaked a secret NSA memo to the journalism website The Intercept, which promptly betrayed her by showing the document to the NSA. Even worse, they told the Agency where it was mailed from. As a result, Winner is now warming the inside of a prison cell.

But when he cooperated with police and took two Breathalizer tests, he verified his statement that he was not drunk but had been unwittingly impaired by pain killers he was taking for sports injuries. Yet the media failed to report that, preferring the “destroy your idols” approach to celebrities who appear to have messed up. Is Woods addicted to those medicines? It will be hard to discuss that after the ridiculous way the media chose to cover this story.
