All of us have been bludgeoned with multiple ways to explain to our friends that too good to be true means exactly that….too good, and definitely untrue. The fun is in how you say it.
For instance, in replying to someone’s query about a deal that sounds ostensibly too good to be true, one might explain that they are getting something “for free”. The inevitable response from anyone within earshot who has ever experience real, true struggle will come swiftly.
“Nothing is free.”, said with the consternation of a man who has never been so sure of anything in their entire lives. It’ll stop you dead in your tracks, especially if you catch the eye of one uttering the terse phrase. It makes you think, maybe a little too hard, and is unnerving in ways that only you can be to yourself late at night in a dark and unfamiliar home.
My all time favorite of these anecdotes however, comes to us in situations where the infernal doubt has already crept into the mind of those on the receiving end of this “good deal”. They themselves wonder if maybe it is too good to be true. Our response is always the same, poignant, yet silly saying…
“If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s probably a duck” – simply meaning that you already know the answer here, or you at least understand the probability that you already know the answer. It’s enough for you to consider it personally obvious, but you’d let a stranger work it out on their own rather than let them know that you know.
Such is the case of Seth Rich, a man who, by the book, was murdered in a botched robbery in Washington D.C., but the assailant didn’t take Rich’s phone, wallet, or watch.
And then you start to dig, and you find out that Rich was tied to a damaging leak that funneled information from the Hillary Clinton campaign email servers to Wikileaks, forever exposing an inordinate cadre of corruption being conducted right under the nose of, and possibly with the blessing of, the Federal Government.
It doesn’t take long to find out just how few people cross Hillary Clinton and live to old age.
Even though Seth Rich’s parents have seemed to move on from investigating their son’s mysterious death any farther than the official story, there is a widespread, yet incredibly well focused group of amateur sleuths out there keeping the case alive, hoping one day to have the full story about what happened to to Seth, and why. This week, many of those folks will gather in Washington D.C. to pay their respects.
Americans will hold a vigil in Washington, D.C., on July 10 to mark the two-year anniversary of the murder of Seth Rich, the Democratic National Committee voter-expansion data director whom some suspect handed over thousands of DNC emails to WikiLeaks during the 2016 election.
The anniversary event will begin with a press conference hosted by the Washington-based attorney and lobbyist Jack Burkman alongside popular internet podcaster and owner of America First Media Group, Matt Couch, both of whom, with teams of private investigators have been on the hunt for slain DNC staffer, Seth Rich’s killer.
Reaffirming the search for Rich’s killer, Burkman will reveal new findings from The Profiling Investigate Project, a private investigative team created for the Seth Rich case, and will “reveal two previously unknown sources who may be key to unlocking the mystery,” according to a press release obtained by the Gateway Pundit.
Following the press conference, the day will end with a candlelight march to the spot where Rich was killed.
This classy maneuver will hopefully encourage others involved in the case to continue on their quest for the truth.
