RUSSIAN ELECTION HACK, SIMPLY RIDICULOUS.
Icheoku says for the umpteenth time, the world is being inundated with Version 'Russians Hacked the Election' excuse by a people in denial, in their woeful attempt to explain away the shellacking they received in the last election. A shameless people who are not tired of manufacturing excuses after excuses of why they lost the election; and who have refused to actually focus the searchlight on the culprit for their loss, the irreparably damaged and deathly flawed candidate they field, Hillary Clinton. Icheoku says they can play the field all they want; they can also, like Houdini, try to pull one rabbit after another from their magic hat of explanations; but until they boldly and courageously look inward to see their nemesis wearing a form of a woman, named Hillary Clinton, their search will continue to come up empty.
Once again, Americans are being bombarded with tales by the moonlight of Russians hacked the election and influenced the outcome of a Donald Trump's presidential victory. Icheoku queries, why did these security agencies, whose job is to protect and guard against such external intrusions, not act to preempt the Russians and stop them cold when they tried? Why are they now shouting thief, thief, after the bull has bolted out of the barn. Why did they not catch them red-handed when there was still smoking gun residue in their hacking fingers. Why now, especially without any convincing evidence other than mere speculative guesswork? But some super egotistic personalities who are still traumatized and still in a suspended state of shock that Donald Trump wiped the floor with them, all of them; including an entire world that was marshaled against him; are raising hell with allegations trying to de-legitimize an election victory that was secured fair and square. They are in denial and have refused to allow the process of recovery to commence by still holding out false hope that perhaps, by some magic, the election result will change to produce a different outcome.
Their ego was simply so much going into the election that they concluded the election won even before the campaign ever started; which saw Hillary Clinton not taking her campaign seriously enough and did not even care to campaign in so many states, having assured herself that the election was already in the bag. She also refused to hold press conferences nor answer reporters questions demanding to know certain explanations to some of her criminal activities, especially as related to the 33,000 deleted and bleach-washed emails. Even when questions were shouted at her, her minders stills stonewalled and prevented her from answering them. Then add her Wall Street speeches and what they contain, which she refused to shed lights on. This is a woman who had no new nor bold idea on what her presidency will do to turn things around; whose campaign was mostly based on "Do Not Vote Trump because he is this and that", but never told Americans why they should vote for her? That she has no love lost between herself and the wider American people did not also matter to these guys who are now spewing this Russian hacked the election nothingness.
Ichoeku says a people have never been as arrogant as these folks who are pushing this Hillary Clinton should have won the election nonsensical. They expected her to win regardless of her flaws and the lackluster campaign she mounted. They expected her to win because it was her turn or rather women's turn to be president, whether or not this particular woman was that woman who American people would have wanted to elect as their first female president. A woman who is so despised that even women issues champion in chief Oprah Winfrey could not give her a full throttle endorsement and said to vote for her even if you don't like her. So, query, who ever empowers someone they do not like into a higher position of authority? If one does not like Hillary Clinton, how could that one be expected to vote for her for president? Meanwhile all these high negatives are of no interest to her apologists who were only interested on her coronation, regardless. So instead of these people pushing this "she would have been elected narrative', the correct and proper inquiry should have been who would vote for such a high negatives candidate, especially one who deleted 33,000 emails and went to brand nearly 34 million Americans irreparable deplorables. Funny enough too, these apologists are not concerned that Bernie Sanders fell victim to the conspiracies unearthed by some of the leaked emails; but are only interested in who made their content public. A crime was committed, but instead of investigating the crime, they are rather interested in who ratted the crime out.
Anyway, it is rather interesting that the current frenzied 'Russians Hacked the Election' is coming on the heels of the fluttering recount effort which they equally orchestrated. They thought that recounting the votes was going to change a thing; but now that Donald Trump is gaining votes ahead of Hillary Clinton, to plus 168 now, they figured the reason for her defeat was not in miscounted votes and have now changed gear, pivoted back to the Russians. It would be recalled that they have so far pushed so many narratives as to why their Hillary Clinton was demolished in the last election. From FBI's James Comy letter to Congress; to Black people failed to show love to Hillary Clinton by turning out votes; to White women did not support their fellow woman; to Nate Silver 538 depressed voter turnout by too much optimism and confidence; to miscounted votes as well as to all manner of silliness including coming back once again to Russians hacked the election. Icheoku says surely these people are turning themselves into laughing stock of sore losers who do not know how to accept defeat honorably. If the Russians did it, at what point did they know or find out it was actually the Russians and not any other group of hackers? if the Russians did it, did they magically too coarse voters to vote for the other guy? If the Russians did it, did they make the Clinton campaign write all those emails that showed them as wearing two faces of Janus - one which they show publicly and the other one which they wear in private?
For whatever it is worth, this latest craziness is both pitiful and shameful and should be stopped forthwith. President Elect Donald John Trump won the election fair and square, admitted it surprised so many people world wide and that it was a deathly blow to the bloated ego of some people who swore that Donald Trump will NEVER be president. Icheoku understands where they are coming from; their ego was mortally damaged and now they are desperately trying to put a band-aid on. The same people mocked Donald Trump into running for the presidency and unwittingly motivated and engineered the outcome of his being today's president elect of America. Ego is one funny thing and ego has ruined so many things including lives and it is this ego that is currently in the way, meddling in an otherwise decidedly concluded presidential election. The good news is that America is not a banana republic nor is it one small African country where elections are easily manipulated and annulled; otherwise at the rate these people who are pushing this false narrative against Trump are going, they would have since taken the laws into their hands and overruled the peoples wish. Their trajectory is frost with danger and the earlier they pulled back the better for everyone including American democracy. Therefore, it is about time they accepted their defeat and lick their wounds and then get ready for 2020. Hillary Clinton lost the election because she was not a good candidate and Donald Trump ran a better winnable campaign and he won.
