Now, let’s go back to the Washington Post story this past Friday. At the very time Obama made these remarks, the Washington Post says that Obama is well aware the Russians are trying to tamper and that they’ve succeeded and that Obama is bravely and courageously trying to come up with a way of dealing with it. He’s talking to the CIA. They’ve got a cyber attack planned. They’re thinking about exposing what the Russians have done.
Obama has called Putin and said, “Stop it.” Obama called Putin again and said, “You better stop it or else.” And then he called Putin again and said, “Cut it out.” All at the same time Obama is excoriating Trump claiming there’s no freaking way in the world an American election could be hacked by anybody, that it’s never happened, it never will happen, the Washington Post tells us the same day, the same period that Obama knows the Russians are hacking and they’re getting away with it and he’s bravely struggling with various ways to deal.
Now, which is it, media? Which is it? Is the Obama of October 16th in TIME magazine who is quoted here; is that right, or is what the Washington Post reported to us on Friday? Which Obama is the real Obama here? Is it impossible to hack our elections or did the Russians do it and Obama knew it and didn’t have the guts to stop it? Which is it? And right in the middle of all this is the media, both protecting Obama, lampooning and making fun of Trump for claiming elections have been rigged, and now look.
The minute Trump’s elected, guess what? The election was rigged, and Trump made it happen working with Putin. Despite there’s no evidence for it, despite Trump’s never been a suspect, half this country thinks that Trump worked with Putin to steal the election from Hillary after Obama said it couldn’t happen, it’s never happened it will not happen, it’s not possible.
Every one of these people involved is a Democrat. Obama’s a Democrat and a leftist and the media’s made up of the same kind of people, and look at what they’ve been telling the American people. So Obama in October three weeks before the election, not possible to hack an election, not possible to rig an election, can’t happen, never has happened, will not happen, too complicated, too decentralized, too many Republicans run these precincts, it could never, ever happen.
CNN Producer John Bonifield who was caught on hidden-camera admitting that there is no proof to CNN’s Russia narrative.
He confirms that the driving factor at CNN is ratings.
According to the CNN Producer, business is booming. “Trump is good for business right now,” he concluded.
Hillary Clinton and aligned political operatives manufactured the illusion of a connection between Russian entities and the Trump campaign/organization. Those manufactured points of evidence, including a sketchy Russian Dossier, were used by the political intelligence community (Clapper, Brennan Comey) to open an investigation of nothingness – to nowhere.
The mere existence of the investigation was then used as the originating point for a series of media intel leaks (the narrative) intended to cloud and damage the Trump campaign/organization. CNN, The Washington Post and New York Times led the charge:
Washington (CNN) – The FBI last year used a dossier of allegations of Russian ties to Donald Trump’s campaign as part of the justification to win approval to secretly monitor a Trump associate, according to US officials briefed on the investigation.
FBI Director James Comey, as head of one of the investigative agencies. became a willing part of that political apparatus, kept congress in the dark, and yet engaged in leaking information to his friends and media allies.
However, now, with usefulness exhausted and with increasing sunlight representing a legal risk, it’s CYA time all around for the originating entities. “CNN President Jeff Zucker is personally involved in the internal investigation into a now-retracted hit piece, sources inside CNN with direct knowledge confirmed to Breitbart News.” CNN now saying any reporting pushing the Russia conspiracy need executive approvals before being allowed.
The New York Post has an explosive report on the infamous “dossier” that tried to smear Donald Trump in order to swing the presidential election to Hillary Clinton. The source of the dossier is a Democratic Party opposition research firm called Fusion GPS:
The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month threatened to subpoena the firm, Fusion GPS, after it refused to answer questions and provide records to the panel identifying who financed the error-ridden dossier, which was circulated during the election and has sparked much of the Russia scandal now engulfing the White House.
Fusion GPS was on the payroll of an unidentified Democratic ally of Clinton when it hired a long-retired British spy to dig up dirt on Trump. In 2012, Democrats hired Fusion GPS to uncover dirt on GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. And in 2015, Democrat ally Planned Parenthood retained Fusion GPS to investigate pro-life activists protesting the abortion group.
No surprise there.
President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Monday morning to criticize the Obama administration’s response to Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
Trump said in a series of tweets that former President Barack Obama did “nothing” after the CIA first informed him of Russian interference in August 2016 because “he expected [Hillary] Clinton would win” and did not want to “rock the boat.”
“He didn’t ‘choke,’ he colluded or obstructed,” Trump wrote.
This is a teachable moment to show you, illustrate for you a little bit about how media propaganda works. I know what you’re saying, “Rush, we know that. You’ve been telling us this for almost 30 years.” Yeah, but it’s a great example here. It’s as much what they don’t cover or report on as much as what they do.
Yesterday Crazy Bernie was on two Sunday shows. He was on with Chuck Todd on NBC and John Dickerson on CBS. He was on Meet the Press and Deface the Nation. It was Crazy Bernie’s first network TV appearances or interviews since two of his campaign supporters killed people or tried to kill in Alexandria. One of his supporters did kill somebody in Portland, and the other guy at the baseball practice in Alexandria tried to kill a number of people. All this in the past two weeks.
This is Bernie’s first network TV interview since these two attempted murders. It was also the first Bernie appearance since it has been learned that Bernie and his wife are being investigated by the FBI for bank fraud. Have you even heard about that? Well, you have, Snerdley, because you’re a wonk. And I assume that many of you in this audience have heard. Crazy Bernie and his wife, it turns out they’re major money players, and they try to shift and they move money around. They take advantage of the tax code like nobody’s business, and they have multiple domiciles. (interruption) No, no. No, no, no. It’s not a reptile. A domicile is a home, for those of you in Rio Linda, and Crazy Bernie and his wife have numerous ones.
So much winning. The Supreme Court is letting a version of the Trump administration ban on travel from six mostly Muslim countries to take effect, a victory for President Donald Trump. In the decision to lift the stay the court outlined temporary limits to the ban based on status.
The court said Monday the ban on visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen could be enforced as long as they lack a “credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.” The justices will hear arguments in the case in October. President Trump said last week the immigration and travel restrictions would take effect 72 hours after being cleared by courts.
Justices Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch issued a scathing dissent Monday to a Supreme Court decision turning away yet another gun rights case.
On a busy morning of decisions, the court on Monday rejected a challenge out of California regarding the right to carry guns outside their homes, leaving in place a San Diego sheriff’s strict limits on issuing permits for concealed weapons.
But Thomas, in a dissent joined by Gorsuch, countered that the case raises “important questions” – and warned that Second Amendment disputes aren’t getting the attention they deserve from the Supreme Court.
“The Court’s decision … reflects a distressing trend: the treatment of the Second Amendment as a disfavored right,” they wrote.
New York County DA Suggests Republican Efforts to Pass National Reciprocity for Concealed Permit Holders Helps ISIS
On Sunday, New York County District Attorney Cy Vance suggested Republican efforts to pass national reciprocity for concealed permit holders helps the Islamic State.
Speaking about Rep. Richard Hudson’s (R-NC) national reciprocity legislation–HR 38–Vance said, “this bill is supported, I’m sure, by ISIS.”
Vance said these things during an interview on AM 970 and the The Hill quoted Vance, saying, “It would be completely legal for a person to bring a loaded gun or guns in New York as long as it was legal to possess them in the person’s home state. A guy from Idaho, where there’s no permitting requirement whatsoever, could carry his gun into New York city loaded, into Times Square.”
He said that Congressional members supporting national reciprocity are “playing into the hand” of the Islamic State, and he pointed to the “ease” of buying guns in certain states in an attempt to bolster his point. For this reason he said, “ISIS is paying close attention to this [national reciprocity] bill as well.”
Frozen out of power in Washington and having lost a string of congressional races this year, Democrats are struggling to craft winning strategies to convert disillusionment with President Donald Trump into victory in 2018’s midterm elections.
The party fielded a hodgepodge of candidates in four special elections in recent months, including a banjo-strumming cowboy poet in Montana. Most recently Democrats nominated a young novice in Georgia, where the party, judging it had its best pick-up opportunity, threw millions of dollars into the race.
Yet each time, Republicans beat back the advances. And Democratic lawmakers, strategists and party officials have been left scratching their heads about how to turn it around and launch a viable bid to reclaim Congress next year.
“They’re definitely licking their wounds,” Kerwin Swint, professor and chair of the political science department at Georgia’s Kennesaw State University, told AFP.
When Republican lawmakers came under fire during a June 14 baseball practice in Virginia, they were trapped by a tall fence with one exit. Thanks to armed officers guarding House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, only five people were wounded.
But although members of the congressional leadership are provided security details, the rest of us have to count on luck. “When congressmen and senators are off the Capitol Hill campus, we are still high-profile targets, but we have zero protection,” Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama told John Lott of the Crime Prevention Research Center.
Mr. Lott, who worked with me on this article, and I have talked to some of the congressmen and staffers who were there during the attack. They uniformly want to change the District of Columbia’s gun-control laws.
Very Fake News: CNN Pushes Refurbished Russia Conspiracy, Inaccurately Claims Investment Fund Under Investigation
Another day, another very fake news story from the network President Donald Trump has identified as “very fake news.”
CNN’s Thomas Frank on Thursday evening published what would have been considered an explosive report if remotely true: One anonymous source told him both the Treasury Department and Senate Intelligence Committee are probing a Russian investment fund with ties to several senior finance world leaders close to President Trump. Only problem? Both Trump administration officials and those close to Senate GOP leadership say it’s simply untrue.
