Noam Chomsky - "Democrats May Have Handed Trump the Next Election"
In particular Chomsky is right in saying that Israel routinely interferes in politics in the USA and that anything Russia may have conceivably done pales in comparison. He also says that the whole Russia collusion narrative was obviously false to begin with back in 2016. Going back to the beginning of this thread, that was also obvious to many other people. Why the dumbocrats where STUPID enough to push such a flimsy narrative suggests that they are truly STUPID. There seems to be no other reasonable conclusion to be reached.

The thing is many people believe there was a conspiracy. There are people I work with still believe there is a cover up. These people are not exactly dumb. The union news letter says the Democratic Party is the one true all knowing party. CNBC is a arm of the Democratic Party so they believe that CNBC is the only truth. There are lots of people who are taking the bait.

Sparky of SoCal: College professors are pretty smart too, but they still buy into all sorts of dumb crap. It could be that they're just going along with the politically correct SJW culture that has infested our institutions of higher learning, but most of them seem to believe in climate change caused by humans, the Russian hacker hoax, college rape epidemic, and all sorts of other bullshit theories that aren't supported by legitimate facts. It seems like they should speak up and insist on a careful analysis of the facts, but you never hear a peep out of them except when they virtue signal to other liberal airheads.

FUNDING FOR RESEARCH - College professors are trapped by the system. Controversial college professors do not get grants and other funding for research. Many would like to speak out, but that would put their careers in jeopardy. So, most stay silent and the only ones who speak out are the ones who agree with the SJW/liberal agenda. Without dissenting voices universities slowly, but surely keep drifting further and further to the left. It's a very unhealthy situation, but if you're a professor who has a choice between bucking the system and getting funding for research that you think will have a positive impact on society, you're in a bit of a quandary, but most believe that their research is important and choose to protect themselves from loss of funding. Even tenured professors are not immune to the effects of loss of funding.

So, what does that mean to me and society? Do we over look the actions of these teachers? If that is the case why not overlook some actions of law enforcement, elected officials, military officers, federal, state, civic employees, doctors, lawyers or anyone else that feels their cause is more important than anyone else would understand. The auto repair worker and their son in law the HVAC tech can justify shady tactics because they feel it is better for them. Should be OK because that’s what we do in school teaching kids who go to school to learn and mature to adults. We are fucked up and fucked.

Media Having Mental Breakdown Over Mueller Report's Conclusion
At the end of this video the following summary of the "investigation" into Russian Hacking and Collusion with the Trump Campaign is provided:
Ultimately, while we pushed an evidence free red-baiting conspiracy theory for two plus years that was proven to be a one hundred percent hoax, the report says the people in the Trump campaign are still people we don't like and so nobody will hold us accountable for being worse than Alex Jones.
