Duck Reasoning Quells Quackery

Below is a continuation of a Libertarian’s garbled  echoes resonating from the ideological rabbit hole:

“This may help you clean up your argumentation so you aren’t just ranting ( I would also like to take a moment to highlight a logical fallacy used while talking about the “hacking”.  This is ambiguity meaning using double meanings or ambiguities of language to mislead or misrepresent the truth.  The an honest claim would have been Russia hacked John Podesta and the DNC, not Russia hacked the election.  Russia hacking the election is a false narrative and misrepresents the truth.”

The parsing of a word from the above ideologue as an underpinning argument refuting or hinting a dubiousness in Russia’s blatant meddling in the 2016 election is, in my humble liberal opinion, the inception of pathological rationalizing with sequela of head spinning syncope. Since he was so magnanimous to fling open the door of condescension, I will take the liberty to pass through: ambiguity is not the word we should be dissecting. What I would suggest is deduction, you know, I assume you know, you should know—-right, Aristotle’s deductive reasoning: a process of reasoning in which a conclusion follows necessarily from the premises presented, so that the conclusion cannot be false if the premises are true.

Now, hacking, myopically defined as the libertarian ideologue has done, but propitiously duplicitous in omitting that the CIA also found hackers, of the Russian persuasion, that breached GOP individuals and organizations prior to the election, including Republicans House members and non profits to the GOP—but, tendentiously, the Russian backed troll farms dripped only the emails colored blue…hmmm, peculiarly suspicious, one who possess sequential logic might mused. Let me be crystal clear, obviously, I wasn’t before, when I articulated the election was hacked by ruskie rogues, I was alluding to Moscow’s sweeping cyber strafing of our democratic electoral process; the emphasis should be on process.

The 17 agencies Air Force Intelligence, Army Intelligence, Central Intelligence Agency, Coast Guard Intelligence, Defense Intelligence Agency, Energy Department, Homeland Security Department, State Department, Treasury Department, Drug Enforcement Administration, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Marine Corps Intelligence, National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, National Reconnaissance Office, National Security Agency, Navy Intelligence and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence have corroborated and concluded that the recent hacks “are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts, and the thefts and disclosures are intended to interfere with the US election process.”

In the deduction process, we assign culpability (there’s that pesky word again) by connecting the dots. The Russians through cyber sleuth-ness, aka hacking— and— the flagrant face to face meetings for, I don’t know, to talk about the weather with a cadre of Ruskie Reps strongly validates the litany of premises. The Trump players that were jawing with the Putinites were an array of colorful personalities, to include: Flynn, J. D. Gordon, Carter Page, Jeff Sessions, Jared Kushner, etc… so, deductively, if it quacks and walks like a duck, it’s a friggin’ duck, and unambiguously Russia tampered with the 2016 election to the benefit of bat-shit-crazy Trump. To deny this, is wacky doodle.
