The Danger of Lying Down With Dogs

Those of you who have followed my site for a while probably know by now that when I’m not out taking pictures, I spend a fair amount of my time following the politics of my friendly neighbors south of me here, down across the 49th parallel, in the United States of America. You may also be aware of the fact that with the recent election of their new President, things have been somewhat unsettled in that region, and with everyone taking sides, it’s gotten rather hard to know what to believe out of what you may hear on a day-to-day basis. Since the mainstream Press, the Military-Industrial Complex, and the Intelligence communities, all appear to have chosen the same side, and unbiased reporting has fallen to the Independent outlets (when they can actually make themselves heard), it’s refreshing when an article appears that contains enough good research, and solid fact-checking, that the illusions manifested by those seeking to delegitimize the democratically-elected government, begin to crack, because as Leonard Cohen would say, “That’s how the light gets in”.

That which I plan to share with you today is exactly one of those articles. I found it in CounterPunch, a place I find many articles, a place which along with the Intercept, Consortium News, Redacted Tonight, The Jimmy Dore Show, and a few others, can still, imho, be trusted as reliable news sources. The first two, as well as CounterPunch, publish articles that are much more in-depth, and investigative, while the Jimmy Dore Show and Redacted Tonight are talk-show formats that serve a quick, informative daily dose of politics.

The article that I’m linking you to today is a little bit lengthy (a 7-8 minute read), but I think you’ll find yourself absorbed in it very quickly, especially if you’re a fan of James Bond, or John Grishom. There is somewhat of a coup being attempted in the USA even as we speak, and if you don’t think that’s an actual possibility, then you really should read the article. And you should probably try and spread it as far and wide as possible. Because that light that Leonard Cohen was singing about…well, it’s probably the one weapon that the people who are trying to pull this thing off, can’t fight. But I’ll let you decide for yourself. In the meantime, stay happy, and safe, and we’ll see you soon.
