It would appear that we are witnessing the formation of yet another congressional ‘gang of whatever’, this one being a ‘Gang of Four’. A gang comprised of two our illustrious RINOs who have teamed up two Democrat senators in an effort to spread the ‘fake news’ that the Russians somehow interfered in our most recent presidential election. It was just this past Sunday that these four stooges came together and released a joint statement urging a bipartisan investigation into ‘alleged’ Russian hacking of the U.S. election. The allegations of Russian interference in the presidential election should "should alarm every American," they said, urging Congress to investigate further without allowing it to become a partisan issue. The RINO simply can’t bring themselves to believe that TRUMP actually won, and the Democrats refuse to accept that their “most qualified candidate to ever run for president’, LOST!
The statement came from incoming the newly minted Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer, Armed Services Committee Chairman and Ranking Member, John McCain and Jack Reed, and Sen. Lindsey Graham, and it read, in part, as follows: "Democrats and Republicans must work together, and across the jurisdictional lines of the Congress, to examine these recent incidents thoroughly and devise comprehensive solutions to deter and defend against further cyber-attacks." These boobs went on to say, "This cannot become a partisan issue." And they added, "The stakes are too high for our country. We are committed to working in this bipartisan manner, and we will seek to unify our colleagues around the goal of investigating and stopping the grave threats that cyberattacks conducted by foreign governments pose to our national security." Gimme a break! This kind of rhetoric is COMPLETELY irresponsible.
This cockamamie statement put out by these purveyors of ‘fake news’, these losers who can’t bring themselves to accept the reality the Trump won, also said, “While protecting classified material, we have an obligation to inform the public about recent cyberattacks that have cut to the heart of our free society.” And they went on to declare in their statement, “Democrats and Republicans must work together, and across the jurisdictional lines of the Congress, to examine these recent incidents thoroughly and devise comprehensive solutions to deter and defend against further cyber-attacks.” However, regardless of what this ‘Gang of Four’ might say, or may wish to convince Americans into believing, here are just ten reasons that the “Russian hacking” story is nothing more than “fake news”, a left-wing twist on the red-baiting McCarthyism of the 1950s.
1. There is actually no new information leading the CIA to its conclusion. None! The New York Times reports: “The C.I.A.’s conclusion does not appear to be the product of specific new intelligence obtained since the election, several American officials, including some who had read the agency’s briefing, said on Sunday. Rather, it was an analysis of what many believe is overwhelming circumstantial evidence — evidence that others feel does not support firm judgments — that the Russians put a thumb on the scale for Mr. Trump, and got their desired outcome.” In other words, someone only decided after Trump won that the accusation was worth making.
2. The “evidence” that the CIA has gathered is inconclusive as best. The FBI also disagrees with some of the CIA’s conclusions about Russia’s motives. The Hill reported this past Sunday that, “While lawmakers were seemingly united on the need to present a strong bipartisan response, the FBI and CIA gave lawmakers differing accounts on Russia’s motives, according to The Post.”
3. The CIA is not making public claims that Russia hacked the election. Several CIA veterans, in fact, have urged caution about the leaked reports. As Newsweek reports: “‘I am not saying that I don’t think Russia did this,’ Nada Bakos, a top former CIA counterterrorism officer tells Newsweek, in a typical comment. ‘My main concern is that we will rush to judgment. The analysis needs to be cohesive and done the right way.'” Thus far there is not even a clear idea what the CIA’s conclusions are.
4. Despite all of the left-wing “fake news,” there is no evidence Russian hackers actually distorted the voting process. The most that the CIA is alleging is that the Russians may have helped hack the Democrat National Committee emails, as well as the emails of Hitlery’s campaign chairman John Podesta. There is zero evidence Russian hackers messed with voting. Ironically, Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s recount has eliminated any doubt about the integrity of the results.
5. Barry has a history of manipulating intelligence for political gain. The most under-reported scandal of Barry’s presidency was the CENTCOM scandal, in which it emerged that “senior U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) leaders manipulated intelligence assessments in 2014 and 2015 to make it appear that President Barack Obama is winning the war against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL).” There is even more reason to doubt the truth of a selective leak about the election.
6. Julian Assange and Wikileaks have vigorously denied that the Russians were involved in Wikileaks’ disclosures. Of the Democrat National Committee emails, Assange said: “That is the circumstantial evidence that some Russian, or someone who wanted to make them look like a Russian, was involved, with these other media organisations. That is not the case for the material that we released.” Assange made similar denials about the Podesta email leaks later in the election.
7. The fact that the Russians might constantly be trying to hack U.S. systems, and might even specifically have targeted the election, does not in any way prove that they actually succeeded. Nor does it prove that they tipped the election to Trump even if they had some effect. As pollster Frank Luntz tweeted: “Did Russia also hack Hillary’s campaign calendar and delete all her stops in rural Wisconsin, Penn., and Michigan?” Hitlery lost the election for reasons entirely of her own making.
8. Foreign interference in elections is nothing new — and Barry’s administration is a prime culprit. In 2015, Barry’s administration made a strenuous and not-terribly-well-hidden effort to swing the Israeli elections toward the opposition and away from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The State Department gave $300,000 to a “pro-peace” Israeli group, which then paid political activists whose goal was to unseat Netanyahu. In 1984, the late Teddy ‘The Drunk’ Kennedy actually asked for Soviet help. Russian efforts to intervene would be bad, but not unique, either for Russia or for the U.S.
9. What would the consequences of allowing undue Russian influence in our elections be, exactly? Would we yield primacy in Eastern Europe to Vladimir Putin? Would we give up our plans for missile defense? Would we make deep unilateral cuts in our nuclear arsenal in exchange for flimsy concessions? Would we tolerate a Russian land invasion of a friendly, pro-Western country? Would we cede the Middle East to Russian hegemony? Because the dynamic duo of Hitlery and Barry already did all of that.
10. Occam’s razor: the simplest explanation for the “Russian hacking” story is that it is “fake news” that suits the left-wing media. It’s not unknown for Russia to use false propaganda to affect public opinion in foreign countries. Nor is it unknown for the U.S. media to use bias, “fake news,” and outright lies to shift public opinion in this country. The current focus on Russian “hacking,” is based on no new evidence and — again — zero evidence of tampering with the voting process.
I don't buy the conspiracy theories around Barry's candidacy, but even they were far more credible than this Russian hacking nonsense. The real purpose of all this is really quite simple, to destabilize the incoming president at all costs, and to the greatest extent possible, because the political and state-controlled media elites simply can’t stomach the fact that the guy won. So the end justifies the means. Want to investigate? Do it, and if you can’t lead with some hard evidence that supports your idiotic claim then shut your pie hole. What, you don’t have any? Then get away from me. Come back to me when you’ve got some actual proof. Why is it that anyone should willingly waste any amount of time listening any of these individuals who have absolutely nothing to support their theory? This pointless, empty pursuit of Russian hacking has already been solved.
