The Clinton News Network acknowledges the Russians could end up winning the jackpot without even buying a ticket. That’s because all the phony false alarms undermine our faith in our political system. Vladimir Putin can’t stop laughing. Russia isn’t the one sabotaging American elections, liberal Democrats are. Progressives have cried wolf so many times now, that it’s impossible to know what’s true and what is only more hysteria. CNN is so flabbergasted they actually admitted their mistake.
Phony Russia stories give America a ‘Cassandra Complex’
The big problem with being able to see into the future is that nobody ever believes you. Take Cassandra for example. She was cursed with knowledge of the future. No matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t convince anyone to listen to her warnings. They told her to go get some more foil for her hat. Democrats have cried wolf so many times now, that when Americans hear the phony tales that Russians are trying to steal the election, everybody tunes them right out. Maybe they are, maybe they aren’t. Who cares?
CNN unleashed some rare eloquence on the issue. “The new Russia drama,” they write, “is a shady tale of secret briefings, compromised trust, mysterious intelligence, improbable characters with hidden agendas and purges of American spy chiefs.” After four years now, it’s also “making it impossible to know what’s true anymore.” All these spurious claims and their offhand denials “only risk deepening the sense of national disorientation.”
Last week, liberals went around screaming that Russian wolves were out to eat the American voting sheep. Not just any sheep, only the flocks not shepherded by President Donald Trump or socialist Bernie Sanders. Those two are “special” to the Kremlin, they insist. The person who gave a slide show to the House Intelligence Committee last week seems to have given people like Adam Schiff the wrong impression. He couldn’t wait to call his favorite media contact to leak the story as soon as the meeting was over.
Misleading Congress about Russia’s favoritism for Trump
Shelby Pierson somehow managed to convince members of the watchdog committee, at least the Democrat ones, that the Russians are trolling social media to tilt the election toward Trump. Now, top officials are backpedaling as fast as they can. “some intelligence officials tell CNN that the briefer who warned Congress about the operation may have overstated the intelligence and Moscow’s perceived preference for the President.” Only a couple weeks before, they had a special meeting with the Sanders campaign to tell them the Russians were rooting for Bernie.
President Trump agrees that it sounds a lot more likely that they would prefer dealing with Sanders, because he’s a socialist, which is only a small step away from communism. CNN only cares about the story if it leads to Trump. Since Bernie’s in the mix, they don’t know what to do. “In a sense,” they muse, “it doesn’t matter which version of these events is correct since the effect is the same, a further eroding of trust in the democratic process.”
The President chased out the rats
President Trump finally managed to fumigate the rats out of the intelligence community, and more are scampering away from the Department of Justice. Trump wants to get down to the bottom of how the whole Russia election meddling rumors got started. He wants to look into the connection that Crowdstrike had with Hillary Clinton and the Federal Bureau of Instigation. The one that he mentioned in that phone call to the Ukraine that Democrats tried to impeach him over. Not only was Russian interference a possible cover up of evidence proving the 2016 hack of the Democratic National Committee was an inside job, it also was used to back up Christopher Steele’s phoney dossier.
Steele’s dirty dossier was complete fiction and everyone in the FBI and DOJ knew it was totally made up. That didn’t stop them from using it as “proof” of why they needed to wiretap Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. When the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court asked them for something from another source to back up what was in the dossier, they leaked sections of the dossier to the press. Then, they took printouts of the news reports and pointed to them as they told the judge, see? Others are looking at this same thing too, so it must be real. There is a good chance that Senator Lindsey Graham and his allies will disband the FISA court completely in March. It’s fate depends on classified answers that the court demanded from the DOJ.
President Trump pointed out the absurdity of it all with one of his infamous tweets. “Are any Democrat operatives, the DNC, or Crooked Hillary Clinton, blaming Russia, Russia, Russia for the Bernie Sanders win in Nevada?”
