The relationship between Russia and the United States is at an all time low. This in no part thanks to President Obama’s recent expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats and their families.
Sean Spicer, who is Trump’s newly appointed press secretary has been quick to point out the over-reaction of president Obama concerning the Russian hacking. This has been completely played out in the media. He agrees that it is purely political and partisan.
“How certain are they of the intelligence and how proportional is the response to what has happened. In April 2015, the Chinese stole millions of personal documents and information from Government and high-ranking US officials through hacking and there was not a single statement from the White House [Obama]. And now we are seeing 35 Russian diplomats and their entire families expelled from the United States.”
Watching CNN – Anderson Cooper again, It amazes me the spin that comes from the Democratic side about the Russian hacking. And how the media displays it. Another CNN Anderson Cooper panel and more quackery on display.
Now it seems, the Obama kooks, including Paul Begala will never “normalize” Donalds election because of his response to the hacking scandal. According to Begala, Donald is tweeting everything “abnormally”. “We will not normalize him.” reports Begala. He seems to see Trump as disparaging the intelligence community with his tweets.
Vice-President Biden even chimed in during an interview calling for Trump to “grow up” about his tweeting. Figures as much, coming from and in-effective, womanizing lame-duck vice-president.
So Begala continues and claims: “This president is disparaging the very intelligence community that is protecting the country and attacking those who have devoted their lives to the people who are trying to protect us.”
Every democrat on CNN when it came to discussing the Russian hacking, called Donald Trump out as the problem because he was questioning the very public intelligence community briefs released to the media.
Folks, the media should never be privy to Intel. And if they do get it, it’s likely a half-truth at best.
Haven’t we learned this lesson before? What the media receives from the intelligence community is but a crumb from the cake. But CNN wants to continue to spin their anti-Trump rhetoric and blame him on the confusion coming out of the media concerning the Russian hacking scandal.
If we are to believe the media spin, Trump only won this election by the help of Russian hacking, influencing the election results and undermining Hitlary’s bid for the White House.
This is now a full-blown partisan, political issue played out in the public media. Read my lips liberal losers:
Russian hacking has been going on for years and any influence the hacking had on voters or the election did not win the election of Donald Trump and did not lose the election of Hitlary Clinton. There was no voter fraud.
This has now become a political, partisan issue to create controversy before the president-elect even takes office. Obama expelled Russian diplomats in another failed foreign policy move that has again hurt our relations with Russia. The Democrats are still sore about losing the election and won’t swallow that bitter pill. It is about upsetting transition.
End of story.
Jack Kingston, a Trump supporter suggests that the word of the intelligence community is certainly not the gold standard and not above partisan politics. He agrees that the FBI and CIA are not on the same page and for them to actually leak and discuss intel to the press is completely ludicrous and irresponsible.
I posted earlier this month something Nada Bakos, former CIA analyst, had said. She cautions the media and others not to jump to any conclusions based on this intel or intel leaked to the media. She has been down this road before with premature intelligence and ‘leaks’ to the public. It has been suggested that CIA Director John Brennan prematurely leaked the information on Russian Hacking to try to upset the election process. In a recent interview with Newsweek, she says:
“As we all learned from the Iraq war,” she tweeted, “there is more to the story than one nugget of yellow cake or intel, that’s why an NIE is important.” She invited readers to explore the Senate Intelligence Committee’s 2004 report on how CIA intelligence was manipulated and misused.
“We have been down this road with lessons learned, use them,” she added. “I would also caution if anyone in power says, ‘I read the raw intel and it is (or is not) true,’ that isn’t the whole story.” (Russian Hacking and other Nonsense)
The intelligence community, its release of information and the level of public debate is unprecedented.
Van Jones, a rabid Obama supporter, thinks this will be a problem for Trump “long-term”. He sees Trump as weak for Putin and that Putin is “stirring the pot”.
“We want a president who is strong for America and not weak for Russia” – (referring to our president-elect, Donald Trump) – Van Jones.
He also projects that Putin is a force against our interests in the middle east and could create a situation where American influence will continue to go down.
“It is absurd for the president-elect to be talking about this.” Van continues.
The Obama kooks think that Trump shouldn’t even weight into the intelligence reports, even though CNN and NBC are constantly broadcasting it. Van Jones is way off the mark. His partisan ideas have clouded his mind.
Powers, who was the Democratic Party staff assistant with the Clinton-Gore presidential transition team in 1992, responded by saying Trump is also highly “disparaging”. There is that word again. ‘Disparaging’ and ‘not normalizing’ seem to be the latest liberal loser buzz words circulating in the media. You will be hearing it a lot this month.
Quirky as it may seem, both the Democrat and Republican voices on the panel conclude by agreement that it is purely a political and partisan topic and has nothing to do with Trumps election.
John Begala, who appears to be one of the bitter Hitlary losers goes on to add:
“Trump knows that Putin and [FBI Director John] Comey swung the election to him. Not that they manipulated machines, I don’t mean that at all. But the issues he knows about. Or he wouldn’t be acting the way he is. If not for 80,000 votes spread across 3 states; Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, he would be at Mar-A-Lago playing golf and Hilary Clinton would be getting intelligence briefings and dealing with all the crisis to come.”
Unbelievable. How can anyonetake this guy seriously. Begala is also clouded and delusional. He is referring to the re-counts spurred by Jill Stein and the Green Party. And he still clings to the idea and hope that somehow voter fraud did occur. What a sore loser.
In order for a re-count to possibly put Clinton in the White House instead of Trump, she would have needed to win the electoral votes in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan. In Michigan, some 84,000 votes were cast without votes in the presidential category, according to the Detroit News. Past recounts in the state have revealed mechanical errors that led to missed votes, but the results were not significant enough to make any discernible difference in the election results. Trump won Michigan by a slight margin of only 10,704 votes but won Wisconsin by 22,177 votes and Pennsylvania by 70,799 votes. (International Business Times)
Begala is also referring to John Comey re-opening the email controversy eleven days before the election, casting more doubt in voters minds about Hitlery.
I’ll be the first to tell you, Putin and Comey had nothing to do with my decision to vote for Trump.
This was another lame attempt at trying to overturn the election in favor of Hitlary Clinton and drawing question into voter fraud. Stein missed a deadline for recount in Pennsylvania, so she filed a lawsuit in Pennsylvania. The court required her to show proof of voter fraud, which she couldn’t. End of that story.
So why is this still in question. Trump has been straightforward in suggesting that we don’t really know who hacked, it could have been China, Russia and even independent hackers. It could have come directly from the DNC itself and anyone who had access to those servers.
Remember that the DNC and the media wanted everyone to believe that the Russians hacked into the DNC servers and stole confidential campaign information that helped Trump win the election. Never mind the information was never mentioned or released.
This is what we do know from Hitlarys private servers released by the FBI:
- The DNC made efforts to derail Bernie Sanders’ campaign.
- CNN gave Donna Brazile the questions Hitlary would be asked at a Town Hall meeting with crazy Bernie ahead of time, and passed them on to Hitlary who went along with it.
- The DNC paid operatives to commit violence to disrupt Trump rallies in an effort to make you believe that Trump supporters were the aggressors, when they were actually the victims.
- In lucrative private speeches, Hitlary said she needed both “public and private” positions on issues.
- Her campaign chairman, Jon Podesta, invited George Stephanopoulos, Charlie Rose, Wolf Blitzer, Norah O’Donnell, and many other well-known so-called “journalists” to a party where they planned strategies to promote Hitlary’s campaign. Some print articles were run past the campaign for approval before they were published.
- She lied about using only one communication device when she had used upwards of 15, some of which were destroyed by a hammer.
- She lied about sending and receiving classified emails on her private server.
- She lied about handing over all her government related emails to the Department of State.
And the list goes on.
There have also been reports that the information released on hacking of the DNC may have come from a disgruntled Sanders supporter within the DNC trying to undermine Hitlary’s campaign and bid for the White House.
Wouldn’t it be ironic if Hilary Clinton, who complained that Russian hacking among other things, had cost her the election, found out the hacking and leaked emails were actually instigated from within her own party? (Read Wham . . . Bam . . The Flimflam Man)
How far has this taken us? Well, now Obama has kicked out 35 Russian families from the US as payback for meddling in our election and distancing himself even more from Russia. See the Democrats and Van have it all wrong. Doing this will likely strengthening our ties with Russia and improve things in the middle east once Trump takes office. (See Fixing our Foreign Policy Fauxpas)
Obama’s foreign policy relationship with Russia over the past 8 years is abysmal. The administrations total failure in foreign policy and appeasment had led to the rise of ISIS and instability in Iran and Syria. Our relationship suffered almost immediately after Obamas election in 2009, when Poland and the Czech Republic were emblematic of New Europe’s move to the West, and Russia vehemently opposed their participation in U.S. and NATO missile defense as further eroding its sphere of influence. The U.S. cancelled the planned missile defense deployment to Poland and the Czech Republic in August, 2009.
Now, after Russia began to occupy Crimea in 2014, NATO and the U.S. have increased their military presence in Poland and Romania and throughout the region. To add flame to the fire, US supported Poland and Romania in missile defense against countries outside Europe such as Iran and not Russia. However, Russians perceive this as a threat and are against it. In May of this year, a NATO missile defense installation is now operational in Deveselu military base, Southern Romania.
So why did CNN get this panel together and talk more nonsense on Russian hacking and how Trump is disparaging the Intelligence community?
Well, Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. on Jan. 5 told the Senate Armed Services Committee that Russia meddled in the U.S. election through hacking, propaganda and fake news. So, NBC reported that the Top Russians and the intelligent community celebrated when they heard of Trumps win. This was according the to quirky media the “smoking gun” that hacking did occur and that the top Russians did actually meddle in our election. This apparently came from a senior U.S. intelligence official (NBC News)
Of course the Russians are going to celebrate. Look at our failed foreign policy over the past 8 years. And does celebrating the Trump victory by Russians really mean that they are behind the hacking? I might add that Russia was not the only country celebrating.
Trump responded with skepticism saying “How did NBC get “an exclusive look into the top-secret report he (Obama) was presented?” Who gave them this report and why? Politics!
After the report surfaced, it came to light that NBC got their information from . . . are you ready for this? . . . . you guessed it, The Washington Post.
