This claim has become legendary in computing circles as software developers or salesmen try to convince the customer that an apparent bug is actually a carefully-developed feature. If nothing else this claim buys time. Could the same thinking be behind the selection by the Deep State/Ziocon/MIC complex (let’s refer to them in prosaic terms as TPTB) of certain candidates for powerful positions?
For a long time I was baffled by the anointing of Obama for the Presidency. After all he had a mountain of baggage just waiting to be exploited by would-be opponents and investigative journalists. (Are you too young to remember them?) Was he even American, for Chrissake? Not being so would invalidate his candidature at a stroke and potentially any legislation that he would subsequently sign off on. Then there were his decidedly dodgy academic records and his reputation for haunting gay bathhouses in Chicago. Hence ‘Bathhouse Barry’. A car crash waiting to happen. Or so I thought.
Same with Demonic John McCain. My God, what a record for the media and his opponents to exploit. The man was unelectable. Finished close to the bottom of his class at Naval College, wreaked havoc in the Naval Air Force with multiple crashes causing dozens of deaths. Sang like a bird when he was imprisoned by the Vietnamese. On his return he dumped his loyal wife of many years for a billionaire’s daughter which still didn’t prevent him getting embroiled in the disgusting shenanigans associated with the Keating Five and Vietnam MIA scandals. And where do you leave the Clintons, for God’s sake? More skeletons (sometimes literally) in their cupboards than Al Capone. Or GHW Bush around whom credible claims of involvement with the JFK assassination and paedophilia swirled through his life.
You’d imagine that any party strategist worth his salt would run a mile from such candidates. “His opponents and the media will chew him up and spit him out” they’d say. Except that this never happened. The media carefully tiptoed around all of the dodgy stuff. As did the candidates’ opponents! Why? My theory is that TPTB gave the candidates a choice: Do what we say and we’ll keep the media and your opponents quiet (we have the dirt on them as well you know). Step out of line and we’ll unleash the dogs of war. Much easier to control than an honourable candidate.
Sounds plausible to me. I have no other explanation for the selection of such seemingly bizarre candidates.
And could this be why they freaked out over Trump’s shock victory? Was it because they didn’t do the housekeeping and found they had a maverick to deal with? Again sounds plausible.
