Of Clinton, Putin, e-mail servers, and energy stocks

All wars are about natural resources. Vladimir Putin’s alleged hack of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail servers was a low cost preemptive strike against a potential president with designs on upsetting Russia’s energy economy via a natural gas/oil trade war or worse, via a proxy military conflict with the Great Bear in the old stopping grounds of the Middle East.

Russia is the number one exporter of natural resources to the European Union and Hillary Clinton was hell bent on upsetting that apple cart and if it meant military conflict in order to enrich a few American oil companies and the coffers of the American treasury, she was willing to spend my son’s blood in order to get that job done.

The irony is so many disenfranchised minorities i.e. black people, are willing to wave the flag echoing Rachel Maddow’s war cries and falling for the media’s siren calls for blood against Russia’s alleged attack on an “electoral process” where no evidence has been shown that not one voter was denied access to the voting booth as a result. Jingoism relies on a lack of critical thinking that takes one beyond the wall. Fear of teary eyes shouldn’t keep one from peeling the onion, but too many Americans fall for the okey doke.

Yes, Hillary Clinton suffered a little butt hurt last fall, and while I understand why a die-hard statist would be ticked that another nation-state doesn’t like its candidates and is willing to keep them out of power, before going ape shit over that candidate’s pain, you should ask, “What’s in this for me?”, and unless you own some oil stock, or are exposed to bank stock that trade in European Union markets, going off half cocked over Russia is waste.
