Russia and The 2016 Election – A Complete and Total “Nothingburger”…

Yesterday we highlighted a tongue-in-cheek outline about a transparent foreign official campaigning in the U.S. against Hillary Clinton to benefit Donald Trump, ie. Nigel Farage.

trump-farage-2The reason for the outline was to prove a point that even if Russia had an ambassador in the United States actively campaigning to assist Donald Trump – SO WHAT? 

Is the media having a conniption because the Trump Campaign was calling and talking to Nigel Farage?

What’s the difference?

It didn’t happen, but even if Team Trump had contact with Russians about the U.S. election, there’s absolutely no issue with such activity taking place.  Take the name “Russia” out of the equation and it happens all the time, and political activists from the Obama administration have been the single most aggressive political campaigners doing exactly that in other countries.

Perhaps everyone forgets Obama’s former White House official David Axelrod being paid $500,000 by the UK Labour party to assist candidate Ed Miliband, in the 2015 British election.  (Below left)  Oh, and he lost.

Axelrod and MilibandJohn Kerry and Isaac Herzog

Perhaps everyone forgets former national field director for President Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign, Jeremy Bird, being involved in an opposition effort to remove Benjamin Netanyahu from office and campaigning for Isaac Herzog in Israel.  Or Secretary of State John Kerry (above right) openly doing everything he could to advance Herzog’s chances over Netanyahu in 2015.  Oh, and he lost too.

Was CNN, The Washington Post or New York Times calling for investigations of President Obama’s interventionist political activity?  Same/Same.

Both David Axelrod (Miliband) and Jeremy Bird (Herzog) lost.   These are just two recent examples of President Obama officials and advisers working to “manipulate” the elections of foreign governments; did CNN broadcast 24/7 coverage of outrage in those campaigns?

Especially considering the reality that one of those campaigns was specifically against a sitting democratically elected ally of the United States, Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel?

Again, think about it.

obama cameronDavid-Cameron-001

Remember President Obama campaigning in London, England on behalf of the liberal politicians in the UK who wanted to remain in the EU ahead of the Brexit referendum?  Same/Same.  And U.S. taxpayers paid for Obama’s trip to the U.K. to campaign on behalf of the Remain Camp.  Was the media up-in-arms about spending U.S. taxpayer money to interfere in the British nationalist referendum?

Think about it.

If Canada’s liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was campaigning on behalf of Hillary Clinton in 2016 would it be an issue?  Of course not.  Same/Same – ie. who cares?

Did the Mexican government openly oppose the U.S. presidential candidacy of Donald Trump?  Of course it did.  Were there voluminous outlines on CNN about the inappropriateness of that? Of course not.  Same/Same – ie. who cares?

The entire narrative about Russia having a preferred outcome in the U.S. election is a complete nothing burger.  Of course Russia would have an opinion; so would, and did, just about every nation on the planet.  Sheeesh has everyone forgotten the reported anti-Trump “world marches” the weekend after the U.S. inauguration of President Trump.  Hello?..

Or what about President Obama calling for Egyptian President Hosni Mubarek to step down from his leadership position in Egypt in 2010/2011…. Or even more extreme how Obama and Hillary Clinton worked with Nicolas Sarkozy to leverage U.S. military via NATO to kill Libyan leader Muammar Kaddaffi in 2011 without any input from congress?  Now, that’s some serious “we came, we saw, he’s dead” type intervention.

The point is, everyone is going so far into the weeds on the ‘Vast Russian Conspiracy’, that no-one is left to objectively look at the screeching pundits and say “SO WHAT”?

What exactly do you think Senator John McCain and Senator Lindsey Graham spend all of their time jaunting all over the world doing?  They are engaging themselves in the outcomes of foreign countries politics.  That’s just about their entire full-time job.  Ambassador Kislyak is a nosy Russian version of Senator John McCain.  Same/Same.

So what if the very worst case scenario is found to be true.  The Trump campaign talked to Russians; it’s not, and they didn’t, but so what if it was – and they did?  What is the issue with Trump Campaign officials talking about the U.S. election outcome with Russian emissaries?  So what?

There’s no there, there.  And even if there was some there, there – so what?  This is a hyper-constructed partisan media narrative with no relevance – except for those inside a DC bubble to find perpetual offense to their candidate Hillary Clinton losing an election.

    First thoughts about Russian / Trump connection. Agreed nothing there. If there was talks with Russians about help with elections I would not like it just the same. What disgusts me is our own criminally negligient MSM siding against America when it looks the other way when the globalists, communists, etc meddle in our business. I’m equally not OK with meddling in other countries interest.

    Nothing is going to happen to Obama or Hillary. If they are good at one thing (especially Obama who is more careful) there will be zero evidence or at least enough to convict them of anything. However, this is damaging his legacy and maybe opening the eyes of more 2018 and 2020 voters will real change matters…so this is a good thing. Let’s keep pressing.

    This entire issue is a wasteful distraction and impeachment attempt of President Trump to stop him from Making America Great Again. We knew the dim-wit-crats we not just going to give up easily but this has gotten old.

      Thank you for the links.

      The short essay from Thierry Meyssan was particularly powerful and is recommended reading for its warning about America if the influence of the Deep State cannot be diminished:

      ‘Destroying the image – and thus the authority – of the President of the United States, before he has had the time to do anything at all, can have serious consequences …

      ‘For the moment, the plan is working – no political leader in the world has dared to celebrate the election of Donald Trump, with the exception of Vladimir Putin and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.’

    President Trump needs no to provide no other evidence but what he read in the NYT, WaPo and the Guardian. Either these “real news” outlets reported accurately regarding the FISA warrants and their sources were correct or these “real news” outlets were duped by their sources or they fabricated the whole news regarding the FISA warrants. This goes to the question of the credibility of the MSM as much as the credibility of President Trump or the credibility of former President Obama.

    James Clapper stated on NBC’s “Meet the Press”:

    “Clapper also said he would know if a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court order existed for “something like this.”
    “And at this point you can’t confirm or deny whether that exists?” host Chuck Todd asked.
    “I can deny it,” Clapper said in response. “There is no FISA court order,” Todd asked. “Not to my knowledge,” Clapper responded”

    Someone is Lying. Either James Clapper, who lied to Congress regarding NSA spying or the MSM fabricated the whole FISA-story and Trump was not wire-tapped.

    **Trump is in the clear no matter what. Let the competing Liars fight it out. Clapper basically called the NYT, WaPo and the Guardian liars regarding their reporting on the FISA warants. Get the Popcorn; watch these frauds cannabalize themselves.

      Watch out! let’s analyze the above transcription posted by vinchenzer:

      “Clapper also said he would know if a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court order existed for “something like this.”
      “And at this point you can’t confirm or deny whether that exists?” host Chuck Todd asked.
      “I can deny it,” Clapper said in response. “There is no FISA court order,” Todd asked. “Not to my knowledge,” Clapper responded”

      *I CAN DENY IT* is not the same as I deny it. Clapper was playing with words, as he did when lying to Congress under oath. Saying *I can say your nose is green* is not a lie because he can vocaalize the words. However, saying *your nose is green* would be a lie (if your nose is not green).

    The Uniparty is beginning to eat its own. Obama was supposed to complete the delivery of the US to the Dark Side via a certain Hillary victory. He and his henchmen failed. They will pay the price long before the Clintons. They have nowhere to run. Nowhere to hide. It will be ugly, but it will happen.

    OK we all saw Clapper say there was no FISA order or criminal warrant to eavesdrop…..So WTF is up with that…The NYT writes there was and many agree there was 2 FISA requests. So why does the X head guy go on Sunday show that none of this exists. Did they bag everyone here or are they lying….I’m very confused…

    Obama and Clinton Approved Sale of 20% of U.S. Uranium To Russia.

    Podesta Lobbied for the Sale to Kremlin.

    Uranium is used to make Nuclear Weapons, Bombs and as fuel in Nuclear Power Plants.

    Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal.!

    A company known as Uranium One owned one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States.

    Uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

    The Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.

    And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.

    I think the President is trolling Congress, specifically the GOP, both the leadership and the rank and file. If Congress stops looking the other way, the holdovers have no cover and will be flushed out. I don’t know if the President knew Trump Tower was bugged; he certainly talked about the WH being bugged and said he wished to work in Trump Tower. His decision to work in the Oval Office was puzzling to me.

    Whether you agree with the POTUS using Twitter to communicate with the American people, when he does tweet about something this egregious, people talk about it and that is a good thing, even if nothing happens to the former President.

    The Russian’s Were For Hillary – They Wanted Her To Be President

    Hillary Clinton Forget Top Secret Documents in Moscow hotel….

    Clinton Left Classified Data in Russian Hotel During State Secretary Trip

    US Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton forgot classified documents at a hotel in Russia during a trip as secretary of state, documents released by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation show.

    The documents, released on Friday and cited by ABC News, show that when Clinton was on a trip to Russia while serving as US secretary of state, her aide brought a classified briefing book into the hotel suite. The classified documents were left behind when the aide and Clinton left the room.

    According to the FBI documents, the briefing book should not have been brought into the hotel suite in Russia. Most of Clinton’s emails recovered by the FBI will reportedly not be made public until after the US presidential elections in November.

    My thoughts about Russia are a bit different.

    I like them because they are destroying Isis. Now that Obama is not able to channel money, weapons, and supplies to Isis and like organizations under the guise of fighting them, Isis is losing ground.

    The people who are trying to get this country into a war with Russia and overthrow our president are our mortal enemies and are partnered with evil, imo.

    Think: if this country went after Russia and reinstalled leadership friendly with the Muslim Brotherhood…who would benefit? How great would it be for the terrorists if they could get this country to take on their biggest enemy? How great would it be for them if they could at the same time take out our president, who is also their enemy?

    Imo, our true enemy is not Russia but Islamic Terrorism and we need all of the help we can get.

    Loretta Lynch – Democrats Call for a Civil War

    Democrats are calling for an all out civil war as their messages get increasingly radical by the day.

    This video of Loretta Lynch was posted on the Facebook page of Senate Democrats where she calls for more “marching”, “blood” and even “death” to resist President Trump.

    Yesterday, the March 4 Trump rallies were met with more hostility and attacks by Antifa and Social Justice Warrior groups.

    This is exactly why he should have never took his foot of the gas. He should have never tried to make public nice with the Clintons or OBama.

    My only disappointment so far in the Trump Administration is that he has not requested a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton. He made a promise and he should keep it.

    There is no compromise with these radical leftists. Keep the foot on their throats and take them out. It is still not too late.

    God Grant us the serenity to accept things we cannot change or that have no real bearing, grant us also the courage to change the things we can and should, and Lord, grant us all here – wisdom. And, finally dear God I pray you be with us and lead the way. Amen.

      I wouldn’t call that evidence but rather a theory, and a theory full of holes at that.

      First, I think Trump asked Congress to investigate not the FBI.

      Second Trump asked Congress the to investigate prior administration, not his administration and campaign.

      Third, the FBI is already conducting an investigation of the Trump campaign. A Congressional investigation will just get in the way. These days congressional investigations are riven by partisanship and mostly ineffective.
