Sorry. Getting my sillies out after reading so many ridiculous things today. It’s Comey roundup time.
James Comey’s firing as expected has the fake news media and Democrats in full meltdown mode. For now let’s set aside the immense levels of cognitive dissonance required on their part to be angry at Trump for firing the FBI Director. The articles I’ve read on this story in the NY Times, WashPo, etc etc and even the local rag (the Star Tribune) are laughable. Almost all of them are completely unsourced or at best, have Comey himself as the sole named source.
Comey along with a colleague in counter-intelligence have been burying data on both Barack Obama’s unmasking/political spying scheme as well as the data showing that Trump was being spied on during the Presidential Campaign.
I’d invite you to read this article:
The Russian Hacking Fiasco – CounterPunch
It’s a very to the point article on theRussian Hacking meme that reminds us that we have not been shown a shred of evidence. Nothing. Hell, even high ranking Democrats are now coming out and admitting that there’s nothing. Dianne Feinstein is just one example and she sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee:
Blitzer mentioned that Feinstein and other colleagues from the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence had visited CIA headquarters on Tuesday to be briefed on the investigation. He then asked Feinstein whether she had evidence, without disclosing any classified information, that there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign.“Not at this time,” Feinstein said.“Well, that’s a pretty precise answer,” Blitzer said.
On a phone call with a longtime friend a couple of days after the election, Hillary was much less accepting of her defeat. She put a fine point on the factors she believed cost her the presidency: the FBI (Comey), the KGB (the old name for Russia’s intelligence service), and the KKK (the support Trump got from white nationalists).“I’m angry,” Hillary told her friend. And exhausted. After two brutal campaigns against Sanders and Trump, Hillary now had to explain the failure to friends in a seemingly endless round of phone calls. That was taking a toll on her already weary and grief-stricken soul. But mostly, she was mad— mad that she’d lost and that the country would have to endure a Trump presidency.The authors detail how Clinton went out of her way to pass blame for her stunning loss on “Comey and Russia.”“She wants to make sure all these narratives get spun the right way,” a longtime Clinton confidant is quoted as saying.The book further highlights how Clinton’s Russia-blame-game was a plan hatched by senior campaign staffers John Podesta and Robby Mook, less than “within twenty-four hours” after she conceded:That strategy had been set within twenty-four hours of her concession speech. Mook and Podesta assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn’t entirely on the up-and-up. For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument.
Lastly, I have one very interesting tidbit from a friend in regards to this Tweet by the President:
I was told in no uncertain terms that this tweet is NOT an empty threat.
