So here we are nearly five months after the election and roughly two and half months after President Donald Trump’s inauguration and still the vast majority of Democrats, as well as more than just a few sinister Republican ‘NeverTrumpers’, remain so addled by the fact that their favored candidate actually lost the last election that they seem to actually prefer self-induced banishment to some political wasteland. Like those who thought the landing on the moon was a fake, they remain focused on what can only be described as some twisted fascination based on some of the most preposterous conspiracy theories ever conceived, while the real story, the illegal leaks of classified intelligence involving American citizens, goes completely ignored in most of the state-controlled media and everywhere in the political establishment.
We all know, or at least we should know by now, and by heart, the blatantly hypocritical scenario they continue to advance. It goes something like this: Vlad Putin, filled with hatred of Hitlery for criticizing and sanctioning him for his invasions of his neighbors’ territories, “hacked” the election in order to tilt the outcome to Donald Trump. Trump, after all, said some vaguely nice things about Vlad during the campaign, and most likely has secret dodgy business interests in Russia. Several of Trump’s friends probably do too, and so they cooperated with Russian intelligence, its WikiLeaks minions, and its propaganda rag Russia Today to smear Hitlery and the Democrats. And, don’t forget, it’s likely Vlad has some embarrassing untold information on Trump he can use later to blackmail the president. Sound about right?
Now while most intelligent individuals view this conspiracy theory as something right out of the ‘Twilight Zone’, those in the Democrat Party, assisted by their many minions in the state-controlled media, continue use of the phrase “hacked the election” as being their way to create the impression that voting machines were meddled with, which is of course nothing but blatant propaganda and only serves to confirm the continuing lack of any real evidence. Of course Russia tried to influence the election, just as it has tried to influence every American election since the 1930s. And we have tried, and continue to try, to influence elections in other countries. Have Democrats already forgotten how it was that Barry, in 2015, interfered in Israel’s elections with the soul purpose of trying to defeat Benjamin Netanyahu?
As for Americans colluding with Russia during an election, where was all of this moral outrage when back in 1983 Teddy ‘The Drunken Pervert’ Kennedy offered Soviet premier Yuri Andropov a little quid pro quo? And it was reports regarding the deal that described it saying, “Kennedy would lend Andropov a hand in dealing with President Reagan. In return, the Soviet leader would lend the Democratic Party a hand in challenging Reagan in the 1984 presidential election.” Kennedy also offered to visit Russia and help them with access to the American media. But hey, excuse we’re always offered is that that was a different time. And besides, Kennedy was a Democrat and the then president was a Republican so, as we all know, anything that takes place under such circumstances is always seen as strictly fair play. Right?
And don’t you just love the selective amnesia on display from the Democrats when it comes to who it was that was truly chummy with old Vlad Putin, and that would be, of course, none other than Barry “Almighty” and, his trusty sidekick, Hitery. After all, who was it that removed all those missile-defense installations from Poland and the Czech Republic; or worked on that “reset” of relations that had soured because of Russian territorial theft in Georgia and Moldova? And remember, too, how it was that Barry, in 2012, asked Russian president Dmitri Medvedev to assure Vlad of his coming “flexibility” after the election. All of which comprise evidence of Barry’s blatant appeasement and which is far more solid than the innuendo and rumor supposedly proving Trump colluded with Vlad to skew the election in his favor.
And, oh-by-the-way, let’s not forget Hitlery’s foundation/sleazy slush fund, which in exchange for just a little over $2 Million in contributions to that wonderful little foundation/slush fund run by her and her family, helped a Russian uranium-mining company, Rosatom, execute a take-over of “uranium mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West,” as the New York Times reported, making “Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers” and bringing “Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.” Where were the five-alarm bells over allowing a geopolitical rival to gain such a critical weapons advantage? And yet it’s now that we’re hearing claims, made by Democrats, that it’s likely that at least some Trump associates WILL face jail time?
As for the hacking of the DNC computers, I guess I’d be asking the question, so what? Was any of the embarrassing information that was released actually proven to be false? The answer to that would be a very resounding, ‘NO!’ And was it somehow Trump’s fault that the DNC was so sloppy and careless regarding their cyber security, or so catty and snarky about their fellow Democrats? Again, ‘NO!’ And weren’t the American people better off for having heard most of the information that came via WikiLeaks? I would argue that, yes they were! Would they have ever heard it from the media? And dare I say that Bernie and his fans benefitted as much as did Trump, since the leaks proved their contention that a corrupt Democrat establishment was skewing the nomination for Hitlery with the collusion of the state-controlled media.
Seriously folks, does anybody really think that voters in some counties in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania changed their vote only because they learned of DNC ineptitude and corruption? Hardly! Isn’t there a much easier, as well as a much less conspiratorial, way to explain Hitlery’s rather ‘surprising’ loss? For instance, Barry’s failed domestic and foreign policies; Hitlery’s total lack of likability, achievement, and any measurable political skill; a corrupt media openly rooting for one side; political correctness run amok and trying to enforce a toxic progressive ideology; and the arrogant hypocrisy of progressives whose hearts bleed for the “oppressed” even as they contemptuously ignore the impact of their policies on the lives and beliefs of the struggling working class whose votes are what put Trump over the finish line.
Meanwhile, the real scandal here is the politicization of intelligence by those who had access to it, and then leaked it to their friends in the state-controlled media for the soul purpose of damaging Trump’s presidential campaign and cripple his fledgling administration. Is that now where we have gotten in this country, and is this the true legacy of Barack Hussein Obama? Have we been reduced to a country where a highly placed intelligence official can leak those names of citizens to political opponents, citizens who had been surveilled “incidentally” and then had their identities “unmasked.” We’ve now had a former Barry administration official, and Hitlery campaign advisor, admit on MSNBC that she counseled her former colleagues to gather and distribute classified information on Trump during the transition.
Every American, regardless of political affiliation, should want to get to the bottom of this serial contempt for the law and violation of citizen rights. We need to find out those responsible, and if they are found guilty, subject them to the penalties prescribed by law in order to send a very clear message that such violations of public trust and fealty to the Constitution will not be tolerated. That’s what House Representative Devin Nunes is trying to do, only to be demonized by the Democrats and ‘NeverTrump’ Republicans who are demanding his resignation as chair of the committee. Why? Because Nunes briefed Trump before the minority members of his committee. Democrats who spent eight years enabling Barry’s hijacking of the powers of Congress are suddenly passionate about its superficial prerogatives?
And what have the Democrats done to deserve such consideration? After all, they have declared a war of “resistance” against President Trump, pandered night and day to their radical base, obstructed and undermined the president at every turn, and crudely and childishly insulted and mocked him. Progressive judges have blocked his completely Constitutional executive orders on immigration out of spite, and Democrat-friendly intelligence officials are likely behind the leaks of his phone conversations as well as the classified information that led to Gen. Mike Flynn’s resignation. Yet Republicans are supposed to trust them and abide by the professional “protocols” and “courtesies” that Democrats serially violate. Isn’t this the same double standard that turned so many voters against the party establishment?
Finally, I get why the Democrats are squealing, I do. It’s their standard tactic of projecting their sins onto others, and forcing Republicans to play by a different set of rules than they themselves follow. And given the felonious carelessness of their standard-bearer Hitlery, who while Secretary of State grossly violated her responsibility to protect classified information and ran a pay-for-play Foundation, their moralizing bluster about Trump’s alleged ties to Russia is not only shameless, but surreal. As for us ordinary citizens, we need to stop listening to the hysteria and misdirection, and start demanding that the leakers be investigated, identified, and if found guilty, punished. Let’s restore accountability and affirm one of the most fundamental principles of our constitutional government, that NO ONE is above the law.
