The liberal media is furious after President Trump’s Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, fired 46 attorneys appointed by the Obama Administration. Every administration has the right and the prerogative to have its own appointees in seats of power. We’ve seen this time and time again, regardless of who the President is. But it’s ONLY when that President is Donald J. Trump that the media loses its collective mind. For example, the media’s extreme bias is showing when you take a look at what we just dug up: A 1993 letter from former President Clinton’s Attorney General, Janet Reno, to then-Attorney Jeff Sessions. Attorney General Janet Reno fired 93 U.S. attorneys (holdovers from the Reagan and George H.W. Bush days), leaving only one in New Jersey spared. This was in 1993 – the first year of Bill Clinton’s presidency.
Wikileaks’ latest, devastating compromises of secret U.S. intelligence capabilities prompt three observations:
First, other spy agencies – including Russia’s and China’s – can also tap our smart phones, televisions and the myriad “wired” devices meant to comprise the emerging, so-called “Internet of Things.”
Second, such interconnectedness can be exploited not just to spy on us, but to take down our society. We must now protect both our electric grid against such a societal “kill shot,” and all the high-tech gear that electricity enables to enhance our standard of living, and increasingly to sustain life itself in 21st Century America.
Third, Wikileaks’ revelation that this sort of hacking can be disguised to look like others did it upends official assertions that Russian hackers interfered with our election. Will we ever know whether Team Obama’s “deep state” was doing some of that, too?
