“Little Miss Muffet Leads to Russia”

Share

LVC Editor’s Note:  This article ran in the Commentator’s Summer 2017 print edition on the front page.

by, Linda Shuker

In the years between 1553-1604, lived Dr Thomas Muffet, who had a liking for spiders, so much so, he considered them to be pets and gave them the run of his house. He, also, had a daughter, who did not share in his affection for them, but tended to be so spooked, as to run from them. In 1805, the first printed version of a rhyme, written by the good doctor, went like this ……

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet, eating her curds and whey;
Along came a spider, who sat down beside her, and frightened Miss Muffet away.

Yes, one of the many nursery rhymes we all grew up with and accepted without questioning it’s origination or motivation, or examination of its’ words and their meanings. Well, as it turns out, ‘curds and whey’ when combined, was a food called “junket.” Interesting is, how words evolve and become re-defined, even if used as slang. Junket, today, is a slang term used to describe “a politician’s luxury trip, charged to taxpayers.” How that terminology came about is, as far back as 1814, picnic baskets were actually called ‘junket baskets.’ And, so it was quipped, “politicians were having a picnic at public expense” ….or, known to be “going on a junket.”

Ain’t it funny how one thought or even one word can prompt a whole other different train of thought? In this case, delving into the fantasy world of nursery rhymes, the word “junket” led me to the reality of today’s politicians and taxpayers. With that, I’m reminded of the country most in the news today and those politicians who made a trip to it – RUSSIA. (You didn’t think this was gonna be a lesson about nursery rhymes, did ya?)

Unmistakable to every American is, the Democrats’ relentless pursuit of convicting President Trump of, having colluded with Russia to win the Presidency. Headlines of the Trump-Russia investigation dominate the news in every media outlet. One would think that this is something new, even if it’s not the case with President Trump. Maybe it’s time for some “memory refreshing” ….

My first memory jog, when coming across the word “junket” was, remembering President Obama’s first presidential win in ’08. Immediately following his win, the then ‘president-elect’ had Henry Kissinger take a trip, a “junket,” if you will, to Moscow to meet with Russian leaders. The meeting was believed to introduce what Obama’s approach would be (when he “officially” becomes the Prez) to America’s relationship with Russia, including a reduction of nuclear armaments.

So, you see, keeping Russia in the ‘loop’ is really nothing new. Matter of fact, the Left has been colluding with the Russians for a 100+ years. Recent generations have been influenced, if not dominated, by the Marxist-socialist ideology, as seen in some of our best known institutions, our schools of higher education, and even in Hollywood elites. Today’s Democrat Party is the mirror image of the Communist Party, USA, espousing the same policies and political interests — Obamacare, threats of ‘climate change,’ extolling BLM, expand rights for immigrants, attack the wealthy, cry “racism,’ and advocate for the impeachment of President Trump, etc. Such a close knit are they, and with the radically leftward push by President Obama, Andrew McCarthy and David Horowitz refer to him as a “neocommunist.” They supported, endorsed, the likes of John Kerry, Barack Obama, and of course, Hillary Clinton.

To keep their alliance solidified, Obama, through SOS Hillary Clinton, gave twenty percent (20%) of our uranium reserves to Putin/Russia. Is it no coincidence $20+ million then found their way to the Clinton Foundation, from Russia? Or, that Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 by Russians, for giving a one-hour speech in Moscow? And, then there’s Bernie Sanders, who could have chosen among many romantic paradises on this earth to honeymoon with his new bride, and he chose the Soviet Union! Ugh!

Going a little further back in time, there was the “Ted Kennedy reaching out to the Russians” affair, offering ‘help’ to them if they would help prevent President Reagan’s re-election. This was detailed and became an official Soviet document, entitled “Kennedy’s purpose: Prevent Reagan re-election.”

The history of America’s Left is foremost a history of “Russian collusion,” dating back to include abundant infiltration of communists into our government during the FDR administration. Which is to high-light FDR’s betrayal of Churchill, while secretly siding with Stalin during WWII.

Were ‘curds & whey’ replaced with ‘popcorn & Coke’ and ‘spiders’ replaced with ‘communists,’ a rewrite of “Little Miss Muffit” to reflect the situation our country is faced with today, might read — Little Miss America sat watching a movie, eating her popcorn and Coke; Along came a commie, who sat down beside her, so frightened, on her popcorn she choked.

The Left’s ultimate goal is to usher in a socialist-communist, political existence within our government. The election of President Trump, a pro-American-Capitalist, is a direct threat to them realizing their goal anytime in the near future, as planned. The eight (8) years of Obama’s ploys, plotting and plans are now headed for the incinerator, up in smoke, wasted, lost and gone, leaving the Left with no ‘mojo’ to further their “transformation” anytime soon. Their only play at this point is to seek his removal from Office, the irony is, they accuse him of doing what they know best how to do – employ tyrannical, terrorizing tactics, as if they were Russian KGB. Come to think of it, they are! A 100+ years of colluding taught them well.
