The Russia collusion...

Post by Nightshade » Tue Jan 30, 2018 11:08 am

...with Obama?

Image
Obama’s first year was a golden period for Russia because he didn’t believe in national interests. Trump does. The left inevitably accuses the right of its own sins. Trump didn’t collude with Russia. Obama did.

Obama's not currently president last I checked. Besides, Putin hated Obama and I think the feelings were mutual. Since you seem so fond of going after retired political figures or pointing out what they did was worse, you're starting to sound like someone used to living in a Banana Republic.

https://www.npr.org/2013/09/12/22177401 ... -get-along

But Trump and a lot of the people around him, especially a couple of former confidants and advisors, personally reek of deep involvement with the Russians in some form or fashion, and most of it is NOT in America's best interests. Manafort was in it just for his own monetary gain because he loved to live the expensive high life and was dead broke when he joined up with Trump, even working for free, probably hoping for some sort of lucrative foreign deal making once Trump was president. Carter Page was actually involved in a Russian spy recruitment attempt. In fact, he's one of the reasons Trump got on the FBI's radar in the first place. Thankfully, Page is a bumbling idiot and not a Russian spy currently sitting in the White House.

https://www.cnn.com/2017/04/15/politics ... index.html

But most importantly, Trump is best pals with Putin, a vile authoritarian autocrat, a man who murders his political opponents, rigs his elections and tightly controls the media in order to keep his power. Putin has Trump on his ring finger.Trump is even learning from Putin's methods, especially with his attacks on our media, his calls for the investigations of his past political opponents, his lack of loyalty to his own people and his refusals to actually tackle the Russian hacking issue head on. Why should he, it got him in office. In fact, Trump seems to be chummy with a LOT of dictatorial autocrats and tinpot despots and loves to hold them in high regard. How's that good for our country and our Democracy when Trump worships dictators and their methods of running their states? What's worse is that he seems to do it just for money. How patriotic and love of country is that? Here's a case of strange bedfellows I'd never heard of before. :roll:

Anything to deflect from the massive problems their own guy is currently wallowing in, including this epic miscarriage of Democracy.

No, they have actual journalists working for them, as opposed to raving lunatics and/or Cheeto cock-suckers.

You sure as heck ain't going to see any of it sitting inside the right wing news bubble-sphere, and I've thoroughly looked. So keep those blinders on while your traitor of a president gives this country away to the wealthy and the Russians. And while I'm at it, what would you be saying if all this was coming out if Hillary was president instead? The screams of impeachment would be deafening.

More of that Russia love, although you won't believe it unless either Fox News or Redstate publishes it.

And how much opposition to Obama did you see by your news outlets when he was in office? As far as I could see they were a giant kiss ass machine.

And I have to comment woody, do you think you're shining example of literacy from what you just spouted above? You're undercutting your own rant. :wink:

There's this example woody. Obama refusing to go militarily attack Russia after their takeover of Crimea. Plus, don't forget your history, WAPO was right about Nixon. They were called a bunch of lefty propagandists until Nixon's little White House tapes finally came out and proved them right, that Nixon WAS doing illegal things. :wink:

And a rebuttal.

Then there was a bunch of negative press they did about Bernie Sanders. I guess they didn't like him either.

Goebbels lives again in two new forms now. First and foremost, there's Sean Hannity. But now we have Devin Nunes running his own "media outlet". Since Trump doesn't like the unflattering mainstream press coverage, he gets around that by having his suckups to create some "not fake" news coverage for him. I can't wait for the 2018 midterms to see what the fallout from all this will be. :wink:

Should we really trust the FBI to investigate anything? The United States is waging psychological warfare on its own citizens.

Wow, that Deep State crap that's being promulgated on the right is really polluting the minds of their base, isn't it? Scary. Simple minds, so easy to mold and they keep using it over and over again hoping the next time it will miraculously stick. Hannity is spewing that junk so much I can't stand to watch his spiel without throwing something at the TV. Plus he loves to end his little propaganda show with the phrase "Protect Trump Always" (I think). So let me get this straight. The FBI is a hero when they punish or investigate spies, terrorists, bank robbers and other such criminals. But when they go after a Republican in office doing some bad or illegal things, it's all a Deep State government plot. You know, just like Nixon claimed. The next Republican who opines that liberals or anyone but themselves should just take a little personal responsibility needs to shut the eff up and take some of their own advice. :roll:

True.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/mon ... 256b10570b

But in this case, Trump's Russia scandal is bleeding out so much evidence that it would be a national crime if the government DIDN'T look into it and perhaps prosecute him, because the man is either being a traitor for the love of money, or else he's being blackmailed into doing Putin's bidding, in which case still makes him a traitor.
