Nunes and shortcomings of intelligence
Marek Warszaski's commentary on Devin Nunes (July 26, The Bee) gives testimony to District 22nd congressman's complete ineptitude. And why, it's my conclusion, that Devin Nunes is only there for a paycheck.
During the Mueller hearings, Nunes theorized that “Democrats colluded with the Russians to get Hillary Clinton defeated, then worked to undermine Trump's presidency” Is this plausible? This can only be the thinking of a crazy man. But who would vote for a candidate like this? Let's see ... surely not those voters from Tulare.
His supporters are Sean Hannity-educated. They will believe whatever Sean Hannity spins their way. If Sean Hannity reported the sun will not rise tomorrow, Nunes and his supporters would all run out and buy flashlights. They cherish their strong men, dictators, and detest
Americans because they think and look different from them. Only the white supremacist, neo-Nazis, the KKK, and other forms of racists are the true Americans.
I guess what I infer here is that logic, to Nunes and his supporters, is beyond their understanding. Facts are ineffective to them, while lies are what they listen to, and more readily accept.
And now, according to what Marek Warszaski stated, Nunes might be chosen to be national intelligence director. This means he'll be listening to Vladimir Putin more than his intelligence agencies. Well, I agree with what Marek said: Dare we hope?
