Nunes and short­com­ings of in­tel­li­gence

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Opinion -

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?
