There is a very good reason I have ceased calling people who work in the media, at least mainstream media, “journalists”. A journalist is someone who digs into issues, asks tough but fair questions, and looks for the objective truth. They can be wrong, but they were looking for truth. People who work in the mainstream media, in this day and age, don’t look for the truth. They look to fabricate it.
So, when anyone from an MSM source writes an opinion piece about Trump that is neither overly critical of him nor overly supportive of him (I admit to doing the latter pretty much all of the time), it is seen as a breath of fresh air.
Grady Means wrote such an article on the San Francisco Chronicle. Now, while it’s not CNN, the NYT and other major MSM sources, given this is coming from the city where the phrase “full of crap” is taken literally, it makes sense to make certain presumptions about this California-based news source.
His article, titled “In defense of Trump’s foreign policy” notes the interesting way the POTUS goes about dealing with other nations in comparison to his predecessors (particularly Obama) and what results such dealings bring about to the security of not just the United States, but perhaps even the rest of the world.
In his second paragraph, he makes it known that he is not an apologist for Trump; that he did not vote for Trump nor Hillary. He notes: “I didn’t and still don’t think he has a firm grasp of history and global issues, and so I have no dog in this fight…”
So it is clear that Grady is not exactly a Trump supporter, but he is not a Leftist whacko either and can recognize good work when he sees it, even if it derives from questionably confusing tactics.
Grady writes: “As opposed to his immediate predecessors, he has not gotten us into a huge catastrophe in Iraq (in fact, he has not gotten us into any big shooting war). He has not gone on an embarrassing global apology tour to autocratic Muslim countries who treat women like dirt. He has not telegraphed our moves in Afghanistan and Iraq, emboldening our enemy and leading to loss of American lives. And, for the moment, he has stopped nuclear and missile expansion in North Korea as opposed to Presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama, who all claimed to have stopped North Korea’s nuclear program. Not to ‘conflate’, but he is way ahead of his more articulate predecessors on many counts – the ones that actually count.”
Clearly, we can see Grady had some issues with the way Obama particularly dealt with foreign policy. That paragraph leads me to believe he is not a Leftist, seeing as pretty much all Leftists saw Obama’s apology tour not as embarrassing or degrading but as justice for decades of “stealing” and “cheating” from other countries.
Then, Grady makes the point that he is not entirely certain what Trump is thinking most of the time. “So what is Trump’s foreign policy? It appears to have something to do with positioning and making deals, although we would need to use IBM’s Watson computer running a million variations of game theory to fully understand his logic and approach. But that does not make it wrong. It just makes it confusing.”
He then details the way Trump treats Putin and Xi Jinping, the leaders of America’s two most notable enemies. He, in person, flatters them to no end and strokes their egos, calling them “good guys” and saying he trusts them in front of cameras.
Part of the reason the Left believes Trump is a traitor or a Russian spy is due to how he treats Putin and Xi Jinping in person. But they always leave out what Trump does in his policy, which is actually against the interests of Russia and China.
Grady notes that Trump’s actions seemingly contradict his personal words of flattery for the rival nations. One moment, Trump is stroking their egos, and the next, “he dramatically expands the defense budget (aimed at China and Russia), takes the advice of the command leadership to streamline military response and effectiveness, moves a good portion of the Pacific fleet to the coast of China and North Korea, and directly challenges China over the islands in the South China Sea. He TWICE draws a red line on chemical weapons in Syria and enforces it (as opposed to his feckless predecessor) with cruise missile attacks, and then attacks and kills Syrian and Russian forces committing genocide. He provides lethal weapons to Ukraine to fight Russians, creates a better balance between the Shiite and Sunni forces in the Middle East, re-strengthens our alliance with Israel, starts a mini trade skirmish with China to force a needed discussion on intellectual property theft that his predecessors were afraid to have, refocuses foreign policy on Asia and firms up the alliance with Japan.”
Grady goes on and on, listing off Trump’s foreign policy achievements such as expanding our energy resources by dealing with Saudi Arabia, “kicking NATO and EU leadership (which led his predecessors around by the nose) in the rear for their historically cynical and mercantilist policies, expands NATO funding and strengthens it significantly,” strengthening our cyberwarfare systems and strengthening the U.S. economy, which is a crucial factor in any dealings, with the strengthening of the value of the dollar.
Then, Grady openly admits: “I have no idea what the guy is thinking.”
That’s fine, but I would like to try my hand at explaining the Don’s logic. I think Trump, above other things, wants to remain unpredictable. Creating confusion is a part of remaining unpredictable. What I believe he intends to do is to make a deal every single time he meets with someone. He’s not going to meet with world leaders just to get a photo-op. His mission is to make a deal with them. Granted, that’s what world leaders tend to do anyway, but given that he wrote the book on making deals, he sees it as his number one priority above all else for the duration of the meeting.
And in these meetings, as I have said in his defense of the Helsinki meeting, he does not want to antagonize the opposing party. He would do the same with the Democrats if they were not so stuck up as to deny to give him anything he wants and then whine when he does things they don’t like. When he meets actual world leaders, he looks to make a deal because he feels that he really can. Frankly, we’ve seen everyone from Emmanuel Macron to Vladimir Putin to even Kim Jong-un be friendlier with Trump than the Democrats have.
The way Trump thinks is this: “I can be your best friend or your worst enemy”. In personal meetings, he does his best to be friendly unless he is attacked for no reason. He meets with our supposed “allies” in NATO and the EU and treats them the same way they have been treating us for ages: poorly. Then, he goes to our enemies and treats them nicely. He is sending our “allies” a message that he can find other allies apart from them. That he can befriend others and treat them well. That they have not been fair with the U.S. and he’s not taking crap from them.
He could easily be Europe’s greatest ally if they were making fair deals with us.
And at the end of the day, Trump, knowing that Russia and China are still our greatest rivals, enacts policy and actions that go against their best interests. That still stand up for American interests and for world interests.
It may be confusing, considering we likely have not seen any other President before him deal with foreign powers, enemies and allies alike, in the way that he does (I say likely because I can only realistically compare Trump to Obama and don’t know how the previous Presidents after our period of isolationism dealt with foreign powers).
However confusing it may be, it’s working like a charm. Iran, despite their threats and being “unimpressed” with Trump’s all-caps tweet against them, is crumbling with their currency imploding on them and their people visibly ticked off at the leadership. North Korea has recently been dismantling key launching facilities because of the June 12 summit. ISIS has been almost entirely wiped out, with no large terrorist attacks having occurred in America since Halloween of last year (there have been some smaller ones, but nothing ISIS can claim responsibility for).
So with all of these major threats to our nation either being destroyed (ISIS), denuclearized or defunded and on the brink of collapse, even Grady has to admit: “… I feel a lot safer today than I did under his past predecessors.”
In the span of less than two years, Donald Trump has destroyed the “JV” team, reached a deal to get North Korea to denuclearize and stopped funding the terror-sponsor that is Iran’s nuclear capabilities (though I fear Obama has done too much damage here).
Our biggest foreign threats, at this point, are horrendous tariffs from other nations imposed on American products, but that is being taken care of with a trade war that we are in prime position of winning, given our strong and improving economy.
Grady’s article overall is a breath of fresh air regarding coverage of Trump. Usually, people are either overly critical of him (on both sides, for some reason) or overly supportive of him (I do this largely because he does a lot of great things for this country that heavily outweigh any “character flaws” he may have and sins of the past such as Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal).
It is hard to find honest coverage of a sitting President, especially in today’s world of rhetoric and narrative over objective truth.

Recently, it seems as though a firestorm has been occurring in the country and seems as though most of America thought Trump did a poor or horrendous job in Helsinki some days ago in a meeting with Putin.
However, as usual, that seeming outrage across the country is anything but.
A new Axios/Survey Monkey poll (not necessarily an MSM source, but they are Millennials) shows that, of 2,100 total adults surveyed, 58% disapproved of “the way Trump handled his press conference with Putin”, with 40% approving.
Yes, that is a massive gap, but here’s the thing: 79% of Republicans say they APPROVED of Trump’s handling of Putin while 91% of Democrats and 68% of Independents disapproved. When it comes to Democrats, if it involves Trump unless he’s not specifically mentioned, they disapprove of his job. The Independent number is the only one that is remotely concerning, but not for the long-term, as this will easily blow over in a week or so and the country will get back to focusing on great jobs numbers, the booming economy, and all the other things that make the touted Blue Wave evaporate into mist.
The poll then goes on to talk about Russia in general, as well as Russian interference.
“Americans are split on whether the allegations of Russian interference are a serious issue (50%) or a distraction (47%). This breaks cleanly along party lines, with 85 percent of Republicans seeing it as a distraction and 85 percent of Democrats seeing it as a serious issue. Among Independents, 56 percent see it as a serious issue.”
As I sometimes do, I myself shall answer this poll question. I align myself with the 85% of Republicans who see this is as a distraction. Why? Because that’s precisely what it is. That’s precisely what the Mueller investigation is: a distraction. A distraction from the collusion that happened between the Clinton campaign and Obama DOJ. A distraction from the fact that there WAS collusion in the elections between a major political party and what was supposed to be an unbiased branch of government to rig an election in favor of Hillary Clinton.
A distraction from the fact that there was more illegal immigrant interference in the election than Russian interference. That there were more votes for Hillary than were counted in Michigan. That there was voter fraud taking place wherever the Left saw fit to do it without getting caught.
Regardless, Axios continues: “More than half of Americans (55%) don’t trust the Trump administration to take steps to prevent foreign interference in November’s midterms.”
Of course, I would say that I do trust the Trump administration to ensure this. What I don’t trust is the Democrats taking steps from preventing illegal immigrant foreign interference in November’s midterms, particularly in San Francisco.
Now, the interesting thing is that Gallup also had a poll recently (granted, taken before the July 16 press conference) which shows statistically no one cares about the “Situation with Russia”.
In the poll, when asked “what do you think is the most important problem facing this country today?”, people responded with illegal immigration, dissatisfaction with the government, racism, unifying the country and lack of respect for others as the top 5. The topic “Situation with Russia” received an asterisk next to it, signifying that not enough poll-takers chose that answer to statistically determine its importance.
Now, again, this was before the press conference, but considering everything else going on right now, as well as the fact that it’s mostly the media, the deep state and a slew of Never Trumpers who are against Trump on this, I would say that perhaps there would be a shift of 2 or 3% of people caring. The media, as I’ve shared before, is largely untrusted and the deep state and Never Trumpers have always had it out for Trump, so it’s not surprising.
With all of this said, I don’t blame anyone for believing Trump is not strong with Putin. Without the evidence to show us that he is, anyone can believe that Trump is dealing with Putin in the same way that Obama and George W. Bush did.
However, it is always important to know the facts.
Breitbart News provides a list of 7 ways Trump has been tough on Russia since his presidency began.
First, they mention the sanctions made against Russia.
“The Trump administration imposed several rounds of tough sanctions against Russian individuals and entities over the past two years. The sanctions announced in March and June of 2018 were explicitly in response to Russian cyberwarfare, which somewhat perplexed media organizations comfortable with the storyline that Trump does not care about hackers and had to be restrained by Congress from lifting every sanction against Russia.”
“Quite a few of the persons and operations targeted by Trump administration sanctions were directly linked to the 2016 ‘election meddling’ case. Others were sanctioned over Russia’s actions in Ukraine and Crimea, and for helping Iran and North Korea evade sanctions against them.”
Then, the article notes Russian diplomats and intelligence officers being expelled from the country.
“Another action Trump voiced reservations about but proceeded with anyway was the shuttering of the Russian consulate in Seattle in March, along with the expulsion of 60 Russian diplomatic personnel and intelligence officers.”
The article also mentions cybersecurity, with the Trump administration banning the use of software from Kaspersky Labs, a Russian cybersecurity giant back in December of 2017; enforcing arms control violations, meaning the Trump administration punishing Russian companies for helping the Kremlin create a cruise missile that violates Cold War arms control treaties; selling weapons to Ukraine to help them combat Russian aggression; enforcing the “red line” in Syria with his strike against Bashar Assad as punishment for his use of chemical weapons against his own people; and finally, Trump approving pre-summit indictments of the 12 Russians charged against meddling in the 2016 election.
Yes, the President was made aware of the charges before the summit, which isn’t really surprising, considering it’s his DOJ that is announcing the charges. Trust me, Trump doesn’t get to learn about this from “reading the newspaper” like a certain lying former commander-in-chief.
The Breitbart article goes into more detail, but it’s clear that, regardless of what Trump actually says about some of these things, or even about Putin and Russia themselves, Trump is actually pretty tough on Russia in his deeds.
At the end of the day, that is what ultimately matters. Results over rhetoric. And as I said before, I understand why Trump wants to appear like he’s buddy-buddy with Putin. He’s a deal-maker. He flatters people when he feels it’s necessary and is tough on people when actually necessary.
So at the end of the day, I completely understand why Republicans largely approve of Trump’s handling of the press conference while Democrats and Independents largely disapproved. I’m not saying that all of the Republicans were well-informed on Trump’s actions against Russia, but that serves as one explanation for a good number of them.
Not to mention that Trump is innumerably better than anything the Democrats or GOP Establishment offer in a presidential candidate.
“Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in abundance of counselors there is safety.”
Author: Freddie Marinelli.
Earlier this week, President Trump held a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, in which members of the media and Democrat Party, for some reason, expected him to address the Russian meddling into U.S. elections following the indictment of 13 Russian entities by the Mueller investigation. (Now I understand the reason for bringing up these charges again: to cause the firestorm we’re seeing).
And because he did not address the issue, even going so far as to say he trusts Putin more than U.S. intelligence, he is being attacked and berated by people on both sides of the aisle.
The media is calling his meeting “disgraceful”, John Brennan is calling it “treason” and more than “high crimes and misdemeanors”, RINOs are joining the Left once again in attacking Trump and even conservative figures such as Ben Shapiro, Newt Gingrich, and others have said it was a disgraceful meeting.
However, I see it entirely differently. Trump did what was best for his presidency in the long-term, even if it draws criticism and ire in the short-term. To even admit or give credence to the Mueller investigation means to give an inch to the opposition. That’s something you never do.
If you give an inch to the Left, they will take a mile. If Trump mentions, at least on camera, to Putin that they meddled in the elections and will be punished for it, not only does that tick off Putin, which is not the aim of Trump, but it gives legitimacy to the insane witch-hunt.
But there’s one thing that really needs to be said, regardless of your political leanings: while there was Russian ENTITIES meddling in the election, we have not seen any sort of Trump-Russia collusion, we have not seen Russia actually hacking anything (in regards to the DNC servers, it was Podesta’s fault for being stupid enough to fall for one of the most obvious scams on the internet), and we have not seen any vote, popular or electoral, be affected by this meddling.
The outcome of the election was not affected by this case, as even Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein has said TWICE now.
But Trump has absolutely no reason to back the same intelligence agencies that have worked and conspired to keep him out of office since his nomination, perhaps even longer. He has no reason to support traitors in the Deep State who literally make up dossiers of urinating hookers to destroy him.
In my mind, the only thing he did wrong was saying he trusts Putin more than U.S. Intelligence. While the Intelligence community is not to be trusted, Putin is a dictatorial gangster who has literally killed his opposition. He runs sham elections and strongly intends to take back the now-sovereign nations who were once part of the Soviet Union.
Putin would love nothing more than to see a destabilized America. The Deep State and the Left are in the same boat. The difference is that Putin goes as far as to kill and imprison his opposition on the regular. I’m not defending the Deep State by any means, but I would be naïve to say that Putin is any better.
That being said, I understand why Trump said what he said. Trump is a negotiator. A deal-maker. You don’t make mutually-beneficial deals by antagonizing the other party. Trump was not going to publicly berate and try to embarrass Putin by calling out meddling that had nothing to do with the Kremlin, as far as we know, and that ultimately did nothing to change the outcome of the election.
Trump is a man who tends to treat people the way he wants to be treated. Unless you publicly attack and berate him, Trump can be your absolute best and most loyal friend. Putin, so far, has treated Trump far, FAR better than people within OUR OWN GOVERNMENT have.
As for the people that attack Trump for this, and I mean people who call themselves conservatives, I cannot honestly understand their rhetoric here. Take, for example, Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro. Even Ben has called this meeting “disgraceful”.
What he calls disgraceful was Trump calling out U.S. Intelligence’s hand in the deterioration of U.S.-Russia relations and saying he supported Putin’s claim that he did not meddle in the elections, saying: “I have confidence in both parties.”
Ben Shapiro responded by saying: “Both parties. One party being a murderous dictator, and the other the intelligence community that works for him.”
He is only half right in this instance. Yes, Putin is a murderous dictator, as I have said earlier, but the intelligence community does not work for Trump. It’s SUPPOSED to work for him, but it doesn’t. If it did, it would not be working 24/7 to try to undermine and destroy him. And let’s not forget that it’s not just his own intelligence community that he’s talking about here.
Do you know what Trump’s intelligence community is? Obama’s intelligence community. The same one that tried to keep Trump from becoming President. Again, why would he support a treasonous community like that?
But do you really want to know what is interesting about all of this. Aside from people like Ben Shapiro and other conservatives, it seems that the Democrat and Republican Parties, as well as the media seem to care more about what Trump did or did not say instead of what PETER STRZOK, LISA PAGE, AND THE FBI TRIED TO DO IN THE ELECTIONS!
People like Paul Ryan, Jeff Flake, John McCain, and other establishment RINOs are more outraged at this subjectively “bad” meeting than they were at Peter Strzok’s narcissistic cockiness in his House hearing. The guy threatened to “stop Trump”, refused to turn over crucial evidence for HIS OWN HEARING, worked in the Clinton email case and the Mueller investigation. But what did we hear from the GOP Establishment? Crickets.
And now they say Trump was the disgraceful one? Thanks for reminding me how strongly I heavily dislike these people.
Then again, it’s not really surprising. What was surprising was conservatives turning on Trump for this. No, I don’t like Putin either and no, I don’t consider him an ally to the U.S., but the U.S. Intelligence community has done EVERYTHING to make me dislike and distrust them. And Trump must think the same.
Supporting the Intelligence community over another country does not make you a patriot if that intelligence community is as rotten and corrupt as it is. Heck, supporting the government altogether, regardless of who is in power, does not make you a patriot. Supporting your country does. Supporting your troops does. Supporting your fellow Americans does.
This attack against Trump, at least from fellow conservatives, is simply asinine. Trump did what he thought was the best thing to do. Now, he has also backtracked on some things, particularly in regards to the intelligence agencies saying he has "full faith and support" in them and accepts their conclusions on Russian meddling in the election.
However, the point remains that no one can honestly blame him for being distrustful of the intelligence communities. Like I said, trusting Putin over them is questionable, but the intelligence community has lost many people's trust in the past few years. You can't trust either.
And let's not forget that the biggest part of all this comes from the DNC servers, which we do not know if Russians actually hacked them since the Democrat Party refused to turn the servers over to the FBI and the FBI was just fine with it.
But with what Trump did, all that would really come of this is people being ticked off at him, as we've seen. The Left is always ticked off at him, so who cares about that? But even the conservatives who are ticked off at him will eventually let go of that anger because they are not emotionally-disturbed liberal crybabies.
They know Trump has been a fantastic President so far and won’t push for impeachment if he ticks them off on occasion. But as for the Deep State and the media, they will always want to impeach Trump. The important thing to consider is that Republicans have to at least have some quasi-legitimate reason for it, which they so far do not have, even with today's backtracking of Trump's words.
Like I said, we have not seen evidence suggesting a single vote was affected in the election and that's all the meddling we have actually seen. Otherwise, the DNC server hack is merely speculation from the Left, as is collusion and everything else.
Overall, while his meeting with Putin was not something that I could say is groundbreaking or helps our relations with Russia all too much, I will say that it was not the apocalyptic and treasonous meeting people might say it is. Actually, I would say it was quite the opposite. I think it was a pretty good meeting. What with Putin and Trump both mocking the collusion narrative and Trump pointing back at the DNC’s servers, I would say it was not a bad meeting at all.
But even if the meeting was just fine, I would not be willing to throw Trump under the bus for it. And I do not think he has a darn thing to apologize for, even if he is backtracking on certain things.
The overall point is that the Intelligence community is not to be trusted in certain matters (not necessarily for absolutely everything). I don't blame Trump for wanting to backtrack on his trust of them. He should try to refocus the attention on the DNC server.. But the fact remains that the Intelligence community is rotten and corrupt and only marginally better than Putin when it comes to trustworthiness.

“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
Author: Freddie Marinelli.
When did the news media become a complete circus? When did they start publishing and writing stories that are so incredible only people who are equally insane can believe them? Because this is what is happening in today’s media. They’ve long ceased to be journalists. They’ve become not only propagandists, but even conspiracy theorists to rival Jesse Ventura.
Eric Garland, a writer for The Atlantic, sent out a series of tweets that showcase how far off the deep end he has gone.
Replying to a tweet by someone else about Kanye West appearing on Alex Jones’ InfoWars show, Garland said: “Both are witting (or, implausibly, unwitting) at least assets of Russian intelligence, be it through Roger Stone (likely Jones’ case) or other corrupt elements.”
No evidence necessary in the Left’s world of lunacy. Just come up with a claim that other Leftists would run with and your job is done. Of course, that is not the only insane tweet he sent out.
Further replying to that tweet, he continued: “Kanye’s recent coordinations with Trump, along with his use of inflammatory rhetoric and symbols (Confederate Flag) reek of ‘provokatsiya’.”
For those who are not fixated enough about Russia to have learned some Russian terms just to “make” a point, provokatsiya means “taking control of your enemies in secret and encouraging them to do things that discredit them and help you.”
In other words, Trump’s essentially brainwashing West into supporting him. Which is ridiculous, as it’s been 2 years since the election and 3 or so years since Trump decided to run for President and became a big deal in politics. If Trump had the magic power to do that, why West? And why now? Why not “brainwash” the news media as well? Why not “brainwash” every delegate so he would win all states? Why not “brainwash” every American into supporting him? If he could do that to West, why wouldn’t he do that to some of his biggest enemies in Hollywood such as Jim Carrey, Robert DeNiro, Kathy Griffin and the rest?
And if he wanted to “brainwash” black celebrities so more black people would support him (which, according to a Reuters poll, his support among black men has doubled since West’s enlightenment), why start or stop at Kanye? Why not Jay-Z, who is another celebrity enemy of Trump? Why not Beyonce, who is widely loved and, usually, less controversial than West?
But Garland is not done. This is, by far, my favorite tweet: “Call this conspiracy theory if you dare: you ain’t got a better explanation than this, and my sources tell me this is going to come out. So see you in a year. We’ll circle back.” And to top it off, he ends that tweet with an emoji, just to further prove his “credibility”.
Ok, I shall dare to call it a conspiracy theory. Ready? Here it goes. Ahem. It’s a conspiracy theory. I know, that’s crazy, right? This Leftist is providing no evidence and I dare call his brilliant hypothesis a conspiracy theory?
Ok, seriously, this guy’s a moron. It’s a conspiracy theory as the only “evidence” he provides is that West met with Trump after the election (shocking, right? A celebrity of high standing meeting with the newly-elected President?) and that he went to Russia a week later.
His theory is that West met with Putin and either was abducted, a chip was implanted into his brain that would trigger support for Trump at some random day in April in a couple of years (because logic), or he was put though a Call of Duty: Black Ops-type brainwashing method and he sees numbers on occasion. (Props to you if you understood that reference).
What was West actually doing in Russia? Meeting with a Russian fashion designer to get inspiration for a new line of Yeezy (West’s clothing brand) apparel.
So West met with Trump after the election (a lot of people did), and went to Russia to meet with a Russian fashion designer and the Left shouts collusion. Makes sense if you happen to live in the psychiatric hospital from One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.
But I love that he dares people to call it a conspiracy theory as though it is surrounded in facts. And yes, I do have a better explanation than his. It’s called LEARNING THE TRUTH!
For ages, the Left has kept a hold on black people. Either through physical or mental chains, the Left has always OWNED black people to one extent or the other. West decided to unshackle himself from his slave master’s chains and decided to become free in thought. He has been thinking about the way black people have been treated by the Democrats, something that he was previously not allowed to do, and has learned the truth.
Maxine Waters’ comments about him speaking out of turn are evidence enough of the mental chokehold Democrats have on African-Americans.
Kanye West has been learning the truth. That explanation is a million times more logical and truthful than the malarkey Garland is spewing.
By the way, I just love that Russia is the Left’s scapegoat to explain things. What I mean is that, if something isn’t to their liking, such as West learning the truth about the Democrat Party, the Left can simply shout “Russia” to make themselves feel better. Russia has become their safety blanket in dealing with the fact that the Left was utterly rejected in 2016 and continues to be largely rejected today, particularly seeing the great things Trump has managed to accomplish despite the Democrats’ obstruction and distraction efforts.
They can’t deal with the fact that Kanye West is now free from their chains, so they blame Russia. To quote Harriet Tubman, “Now I’ve been free, I know what a dreadful condition slavery is. I have seen hundreds of escaped slaves, but I never saw one who was willing to go back and be a slave.”
West is now free and there is no chance he will return to the Left’s slave plantation of thought willingly. And the Left simply can’t deal with that because they are highly-emotional and volatile children.

If you’ve been paying attention to the news, whether they’re real or fake news, you know very well that there is no evidence to support the claim that Trump colluded with Russia to cheat in the 2016 election. Despite the fact that the fake news media keeps saying: “there’s mountains of evidence” against Trump regarding collusion, there is, in fact, no evidence of collusion. Even a little bit of evidence.
Else, don’t you think Mueller would’ve already issued charges against Trump directly? Don’t you think Congress would’ve already voted to impeach Trump?
There is no evidence of collusion because THERE WAS NO COLLUSION! This much, anyone with some skill in rational thinking can conclude. Still, the House Intel Committee had to also look into these accusations, and on Friday, released a report declaring the panel had not found any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
Officially, the 253-page report says that the committee “found no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded, coordinated, or conspired with the Russian government.”
The report also said that both campaigns demonstrated “poor judgment and ill-considered actions”.
About Trump, the committee cited a meeting that took place in June of 2016 between officials in the Trump campaign and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who “falsely purported to have damaging information on the Clinton campaign.”
About Clinton, the committee found “that the Clinton campaign and the DNC, using a series of cutouts and intermediaries to obscure their roles, paid for opposition research on Trump obtained from Russian sources, including a litany of claims by high-ranking current and former Russian government officials. Some of this opposition research was used to produce sixteen memos, which comprise what has become known as the Steele dossier.”
Now, these are all things that you and I have known for quite some time. Regardless, it’s still important to point out (crucial, in fact), particularly since the information we know we didn't get thanks to the MSM. The MSM has been trying to bury these facts and information, since they show far more evidence of Clinton-Russia collusion than Trump-Russia collusion. So chances are that most of their viewers don’t know about the malarkey that is the Steele dossier and the payment from the Hillary campaign to put that dossier together.
Chances are that we know far more about what Fusion GPS is than a regular CNN or MSNBC viewer. The fake news media hardly, if ever, talks about Fusion GPS. When talking about the Russian collusion, they will talk about nearly anything else aside from that. And when they talk about the Steele dossier, they focus on the ridiculous little story of Trump hiring prostitutes to urinate on the Obamas’ bed in a hotel in Russia.
Despite how stupid and unbelievable that story is, they still prefer to run it, despite the fact that the Steele dossier has been all but publicly confirmed to be false… even then, conservative media tries its best to publicly confirm it.
And this report is even more substantial because of Trump’s reaction to it. On Twitter, the President tweeted: “Just Out: House Intelligence Committee Report released. ‘No evidence’ that the Trump Campaign ‘colluded, coordinated, or conspired with Russia.’ Clinton Campaign paid for Opposition Research obtained from Russia – Wow! A total Witch Hunt! MUST END NOW!”
The reason it’s more substantial is because this also is brought to the attention of other typical viewers of the MSM. Liberals, as well as conservatives, follow Trump on Twitter. I’ve seen liberals reply to Trump’s tweets time and time again. Regardless of what they are saying (which is usually untrue and misinformed, or a simple joke), the President does have these liberals’ attention.
Now, I don’t doubt that liberals will deny or not believe what he is saying, but the information is being brought to the table. That thought is now in every person that has read that tweet’s heads.
I can’t imagine the MSM bringing this sort of discussion to light for all too long. Heck, even a simple search in the New York Times’ website for “Fusion GPS” takes us to a story, at the near top of the page, about discrediting the attack against Fusion GPS, titled “The Republicans’ Fake Investigations”. Do you want to know who wrote the story? Glenn R. Simpson, founder of Fusion GPS – the opposition research firm that hired Steele to write up the dossier.
All I hear from that article is “I am not a crook!” Does the very founder of Fusion GPS, someone who worked alongside the Clinton campaign to create the Steel dossier, really expect me to believe anything he says to defend the Russia investigation and his own firm? His article’s literal subtitle reads: “The attack on our firm, Fusion GPS, is a diversionary tactic by Republicans who don’t want to investigate Donald Trump’s ties to Russia.”
Really? So the fact that the Clinton campaign used you guys to create that dossier is a diversion and entirely irrelevant? Aha, yeah, ok.
Let me remind you what a dossier is: “a collection of documents about a particular person, event, or subject.” That is literally the definition you would get if you were to Google: “dossier definition”. It doesn’t get any more bare-bones than that.
Now, do you know what that definition means? “A collection of documents…” In other words, a collection of EVIDENCE OR FACTS about someone or something!
The dossier was presented to the FISA courts to issue the warrants to spy on American citizen Carter Page. Beyond that, the dossier is the entire basis for Mueller’s Special Counsel Investigation into Russian collusion, which at this point has devolved into literally any sin Trump has ever committed since he was born.
Like I said, the dossier has all but been publicly proven to be false, but all of this information already points to that conclusion. It’s all actual evidence of it.
Again, there is more evidence of Clinton-Russia collusion than there is Trump-Russia collusion. I don’t know how many people still believe the dossier to be true, but there are bound to be some low-information people who do. This report, alongside Trump’s reaction on Twitter, will at least bring this discussion to people’s minds, regardless of whether they believe it or not.
But even having the thought of it in their minds is a good first step. All that is necessary is to provide them with the facts and information necessary to prove what we already know for a fact.
Trump did not collude with Russia to win the election. Hillary did, and she still lost.

CNN sent out a reporter to a Florida woman’s home to talk about a pro-Trump event that was orchestrated by Russian trolls. Given that CNN is bloodthirsty when it comes to anything involving Trump and Russians, I’m not surprised that they jumped at the opportunity to locate a private citizen, harass her and accuse her of working with the Russians, even if it was unwittingly.
The reporter harassed her and continued to ask her accusatory questions, saying that she was involved with a pro-Trump Facebook group that orchestrated the event, which seemingly was run by Russian trolls.
He accused her of being involved with the Russians, whether she knew it or not. When she defended her fellow Trump supporters who attended the rally, he accused them of being under the “direction of groups that were associated with Russians...”
He then continued accusing her, saying: “But did you realize that you guys were in communication electronically with Russians?"
It’s obvious by that last question that he does not understand what Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein meant when he said: “There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity. There is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election.”
I know for certain that CNN heard Rosenstein say that. They know that, according to Rosenstein, no American was a knowing participant in this. And yet, they look up and find this woman online, discover her address and accuse her of working with the Russians whether she knew it or not.
What they did is the very definition of doxing someone. Doxing means “to publicly identify or publish private information about (someone) especially as a form of punishment or revenge.”
CNN published her full name (which I won’t share since she’s a PRIVATE CITIZEN and I’m not a piece of garbage like CNN), which led to her being further harassed by online users.
I won’t share most of the comments, since they’re all pretty nasty coming from nasty people, but here are just a few:
“You should be hanged for treason!!!”
“In my opinion you should be tried for collusion with Russia. Your ignorance and inability to realize you were promoting Russian propaganda is not a defense. Look at what you’ve done. You should be ashamed of yourself.”
“You disgusting flabby skinned yellow toothed hag. Communist pig. You’re scum.”
That last one confused me a bit, since Hillary is far closer to being a Communist than Trump and his supporters are, but still an overall nasty comment.
Now, there’s a good reason I chose to share these specific comments.
You see, Leftist whacko Michael Moore attended an anti-Trump rally held at the Trump Tower called the “Trump is NOT my president” rally. This rally was also orchestrated by Russian trolls, given what Mueller uncovered for the indictments.
How is it, then, that CNN isn’t going to Michael Moore’s house and accusing him of working with the Russians? How is it that they only went after a Trump supporter and harassed her for being an unwitting participant in a Russian-troll-orchestrated event but choose to ignore that Moore did the same thing and with an even bigger voice given his celebrity status?
By the previous comments’ logic, Moore should be hanged for treason. Moore should be tried for collusion with Russia. The fact that he didn’t know he was part of it shouldn’t be an excuse and he should be ashamed of himself.
Now, since I’m a logical person, I’m not going to use these same tactics on Moore. I don’t think he should be “hanged for treason” or anything of the sort. But then, people shouldn’t suggest the female Trump supporter should be either.
Not to mention the other significant portion of Rosenstein’s revelations. There is no allegation that this altered the outcome of the election. Meaning that this whole ordeal, whether it happened or not, was not going to change the outcome of the election.
Trump won DESPITE Russian meddling in the election. Not to mention that the people recently indicted by Mueller were not part of the Kremlin. They weren’t part of the Russian government.
These Russians organized pro- and anti-Trump rallies to stir up conflict in our election and the American people participated.
The ones who attended the pro-Trump rallies were all ardent Trump supporters, not Russian agents. And the ones who attended anti-Trump rallies were all ardent Trump haters, not Russian agents.
But that’s not the point. The point is that CNN doxed an American citizen, harassed her and accused her of working with the Russians whether she knew it or not and have caused other people online to harass her as well.
CNN, by posting her full name, have made it easier for anyone to find her online profile and the city she lives in (again, I’m not going to share that because it’s private information and I’m not a scumbag like CNN).
Now, the video of the harassment doesn’t say whether or not she gave them permission to post her face or full name. If they didn’t ask and she’s getting harassed in this manner and risks being attacked by someone with better researching skills who could find her exact address, she might be able to sue CNN.
I’m no lawyer, but I know you can’t post someone’s profile like that without permission.
Regardless, it speaks to the disgusting nature of CNN and the Left as a whole for them to find a Trump supporter who’s a private citizen and harass her with accusations and releasing her full name for people to find online and further harass her.
This disgusting act paints CNN for what they are: the Crappiest Name in News. Maybe that’s what CNN stands for.

The Left simply can’t let go of this argument. It’s the only one they have to go on. They are too stubborn to admit they lost to Trump. And with GOP leaders announcing their plan to end their investigations into the election, the MSM wants to continue the fight that was born of nothing and will lead to nothing.
There’s a story on Politico with the following title: “GOP eyes end of Russia probes with Trump collusion unanswered.” It’s already been answered! THERE WAS NO COLLUSION! If there was, at least ONE piece of evidence would’ve surfaced by now given how many people are looking into it. The FBI, Congress, Mueller and MSM have all been looking into it for MONTHS and not a single thing to show for it.
The FBI began their investigation due to a b.s. dossier that only NOW has been revealed to the world to be absolutely b.s., Mueller has a team of DEMOCRATS looking into everything Trump has done since he learned to talk, and the MSM has been spending months covering a story that even one CNN producer has admitted to be fake.
The entire investigation was fabricated of absolutely nothing and, surprise, surprise, will result in absolutely nothing. But the Left can’t simply end it like that. They refuse to allow this story to die. They CAN’T admit that Trump beat Hillary fair and square and simply MUST reach a conclusion that Trump cheated and asked Russia for help. Hey, even the Politico article says that Trump INTENDED to collude, when that’s entirely false.
Let’s go through the important parts of the article:
First, the article begins: “Republican lawmakers say they’re approaching the end of their investigations into Russian interference into the 2016 presidential election even though the most politically explosive issue – whether associates of President Donald Trump colluded with the Kremlin – remains unresolved.”
The Left has been looking into this fervently and have yet to come up with a single piece of evidence. Either the FBI, members of Congress, Mueller and MSM are all Homer-Simpson-working-at-the-nuclear-plant levels of inept or there simply is nothing there to criminalize Trump for.
Next, “Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) has suggested his panel’s investigation will end early next year, emphasizing that he wants to wrap up by February… ‘If there’s evidence that there was something there, that will all be laid out. If there’s no evidence, how could anybody object to it?’ Burr said.”
Mr. Burr, the Left will object to it. By the time of your scheduled end to the probes, the Left will have spent nearly a year and a half on this story. If there’s no evidence, they will lose whatever they have left of their minds. To not object to it would surely mean the Left admitting defeat, and they’re simply too arrogant to do that. They were too arrogant in 2000, when Bush won. They are even more arrogant today. At least the 2000 election was close. 2016 was a nuke to the Left.
Then the article talks about Democrats wanting to meet with Republican leaders before the probes end and hope to “come to a unified bipartisan conclusion.” Quoting Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA): “I think, frankly, it would be a good idea for the four of us (him, Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX) and Burr) to be collaborating as we go along rather than wait until the conclusion of our investigation.”
Oh, I don’t doubt that Schiff wants that. Historically, coming to a “bipartisan conclusion” or agreement usually means Republicans caving and Democrats getting their way. If Democrats want a conclusion, it will be one that will somehow result in the impeachment of Trump. They will b.s. harder than they ever have if that’s what it takes.
The article later on says: “Schiff and fellow California Rep. Eric Swalwell, two of the most outspoken House Intelligence Committee Democrats, say they too hope for unity but emphasized that despite the absence of a smoking gun, they’ve seen compelling evidence of Trump allies’ ‘intent to collude.’”
That’s what they’re down to? Intent? There was never any sort of attempt to collude. No INTENT to collude. This falls under the category of NO EVIDENCE FOR THE PAST 10 MONTHS! Let’s see what the article lists as intent, shall we?
First: “There’s the secret meeting with Kremlin-connected Russians that the President’s son, Donald Trump Jr., organized in Trump Tower ostensibly to obtain documents unfavorable to Hillary Clinton, as well as attempts by two Trump business associates to seek Kremlin help for a Trump Tower development in Moscow just as the presidential campaign was beginning to earnest.”
Let’s begin with the first part. Attempting to get information about a political opponent is as much a part of politics as the Parties. It’s called “opposition research”, a concept that the Left is very familiar with. Trump Jr. didn’t get anything out of said meeting, anyway. Not to mention that the dossier points to Clinton-Russia ties far more than Trump-Russia ties. If anyone should be under investigation, it should be Hillary. Not just for absolutely everything else that has earned her the name “Crooked Hillary”, but for the dossier as well.
The second part is even more ridiculous. What exactly does a Trump Tower development in Moscow have to do with collusion? When you’re in real estate, you have to get permission from the government of wherever you want to build something. He’s had to get permits from New York City, Miami and wherever a Trump Tower is in order to build there. Maybe New York City interfered in the election, if you’re following this logic. Maybe Miami interfered too. Give me a break.
Continuing with “examples of intent”: “There are also lingering questions about Trump’s first pick for national security adviser, Mike Flynn, and allegations he secretly assured Russia’s ambassador that Trump would lift Obama-imposed sanctions on Russia. And there’s the mysterious admission by a GOP operative, who claimed connections to the Trump campaign, that he sought help from Russians to expose thousands of emails deleted from Clinton’s private server.”
Ok, let’s break those down as well. First, the only reason anyone even knows about Mike Flynn is due to the fact that he was illegally unmasked. Holding a private conversation with someone from Russia about sanctions means nothing. Knowing what Obama has done in the past, lifting certain sanctions would be a good thing. It would strengthen America’s relationship with an enemy state.
Finally, the emails. Yes, can’t forget the emails, especially if you’re a Leftist. Try as you might, it’s still there. Never mind the fact that Hillary did hold confidential emails in a private server and proceeded to frantically delete the emails when it was discovered. No, that’s not shady at all. Let’s point to Trump making a JOKE that Russians should look for the emails. THAT is what we should be focused on.
Let’s also ignore the fact that the DNC WAS hacked by Russians and they adamantly refused to allow the FBI to look into it and opted to have their own people look into it. Yeah, not shady at all.
I can understand why the Left doesn’t want this investigation to come to an end. It’s everything they have. Nothing else has worked thus far and this is the one thing they lie to themselves about that it could work. We conservatives have warehouses-worth of ammunition against any Leftist argument, but the collusion story is one of their last lines of defense.
Calling him a racist hasn’t worked, as no one with a brain believes them. Calling him a predator while hiding the hundreds of skeletons in their own closet is laughable. Having an organization call him a fascist as they themselves act like fascists is worthy of a facepalm.
The media is no longer seen as trustworthy by the majority of Americans and the slow decent into insanity we’re witnessing by the Left is amusing.
They’re losing election after election and show no signs of improvement. They simply can’t allow this investigation to be ended. They can’t lose their story.
And no matter what verdict is found on the subject, the Left will always believe with all their being that Trump colluded with Russia. Facts have never mattered to these people, so why should they matter now?
But that’s ok. They can keep lying all they want. As long as there are people who speak the truth, the evils of their ways will continue to get exposed.

The reason I add “surprisingly” to the title is simply because I didn’t think Hillary Clinton could sink to a new low following the 2016 election.
While she’s still blaming Russia for her election loss, the way she’s blaming Russia is incredibly astonishing and offensive.
In a speech at the Southbank Centre’s London Literature Festival, Hillary made sure to remind the audience what she thinks was the reason for her loss: Russian interference.
“I think there are a lot more connections that have yet to come to light”, Clinton said in her speech. She also mentioned that if she had been elected President, she “would have called for an independent commission to get to the bottom of it.”
Well, there are a few things wrong with that:
First, THERE WAS NO RUSSIAN COLLUSION! This is a point we’ve been making ever since this excuse began to float about in the Democrat Party and MSM. Nearly a year after the election and not a single piece of evidence of collusion.
Second, the only reason this excuse was given is because SHE LOST! If she had won, NO MENTION OF RUSSIAN COLLUSION WOULD’VE BEEN MADE BY THE LEFT! Even Trump was worried, before the election, that there could be Russian collusion against him. And do you know what happened? Obama assured the country that Russia couldn’t possibly hack into our elections and the media made fun of Trump for even suggesting such a ridiculous notion.
Third, we do have a sort of “independent commission” who are “trying to get to the bottom of it”. They’re called the MSM. They’ve been independently investigating Trump and Russia for nearly a year now. Not to mention that aside from the MSM, there’s Robert Mueller’s special counsel who are also investigating this. Though, mostly, they’ve been investigating Trump’s personal and business life than anything else, because they literally have nothing that ties him to Russia during the time of the election. And frankly, they also won’t find anything on Trump the way they’re doing it.
If anything, there’s been more collusion between the Obama administration and Russia than Trump and Russia. The Hill wrote a story on how the FBI has uncovered business dealings between the Obama administration and Russia about American uranium. I won’t go into much detail about it, considering this is a story about something else entirely, but this just goes to show how much more corrupt the Left is than they even claim Trump to be.
If you want to read that Hill article, the title is: “FBI uncovered Russian bribery plot before Obama administration approved controversial nuclear deal with Moscow.”
Returning to the topic of conversation, at this point, you might be wondering “what did Hillary say that was ‘offensive’ as you put it, Freddie?” Well, here it is: “We had really well-respected security, intelligence veterans saying this was a ‘cyber 9/11’ in the sense it was a direct attack on our institutions.”, Hillary said in her speech.
Yep, Hillary’s comparing her election loss to the 9/11 attacks that killed 3000 people and brought down two iconic towers in Manhattan. If you have lost a loved one on 9/11, Hillary is saying that her election loss was just as bad. That the made up Russian attack was just as significant and tragic as the very real Islamic terrorist attack on our nation.
This, I believe, might be a new low for Hillary Clinton. Again, I did not think she could sink any lower than she already has. Maybe I gave her too much credit. Maybe I’ve yet to learn just how offensive, ignorant and insensitive the Left is about our country and just how self-absorbed they are.
You must be a massive narcissist to believe a national tragedy such as 9/11 could even compare to you losing an election. On September 11th, 2001, the whole world stood still as we witnessed evil taking down the twin towers. We lost 3000 souls that day. We vowed that justice would be served. And promised to never forget.
On November 8th, 2016, the whole world stood still as we witnessed God’s glory in making Trump President of the United States. We witnessed America looking to become stronger. We lifted the spirits of true American patriots that otherwise would’ve lost all hope for our country with the election of a crook. We vowed that we would do everything we could to Make America Great Again. And we promised to once again become the world’s hyper power. To become a beacon of light for the world to see. To become leaders of the world, as opposed to followers.
Hillary, your election loss wasn’t a “cyber 9/11”. It was one of the best days of my young life. I wasn’t around to see Reagan be elected and make the country great. And this is the first time I’m seeing a true leader in the White House, after 8 terrible years if ineptitude, incompetence and evil coming from Obama and 8 years of Bush kinda just being there (I was too young to pay attention at the time, and I wouldn’t understand anyway).
On 9/11, we lost 3000 innocent people. On November 8th, THE LEFT lost the America they envisioned. One that was just as impotent and fragile as Obama sought to make it.

CNN’s latest attempt to, once again, blame Russia for interfering in the election, is that Russia has been using Pokemon GO to get Trump elected… somehow.
For the adults in the room, Pokemon GO is an app where people can walk around their city or town, searching for Pokemon monsters to capture. It’s basically a real life version of any Pokemon game you may have played as a child, or have bought for your children.
Now, how exactly did Russia interfere with the election using Pokemon GO? Well, not even the CNN video explains it. The video titled: “Russian meddling extended to Pokemon GO” doesn’t even really mention Russian meddling after the beginning… No, seriously. Stop laughing. They really forgot the topic of conversation here.
Here’s what the video covered: CNN host Brooke Baldwin began by saying: “We have exclusive new details about the Russian-linked effort to meddle in the 2016 presidential election”. Then, she cuts to the guest, Dylan Byers, and mentions that he’s been tracking meddling efforts across social media… and then, that’s where the Russia part of the story ends.
Dylan Bryers begins by focusing on an account on the Pokemon GO app called “Don’t Shoot Us” and says it was “posing as a part of the Black Lives Matter movement” and that the account used multiple platforms across social media and the app to reinforce outrage over police brutality. He said that the page promoted a Pokemon GO competition that had its participants go to places of alleged police brutality, capture a Pokemon there, and rename it after the alleged victim.
He then mentions how the users clearly tried to fan the flames of outrage with this controversial topic and that they were very sophisticated with how they were organizing these things… and then, the video ends.
Yep, not even a mention as to how Russia is involved in any way. The topic and literal title was about how Russia used the app and social media to interfere in the election, and they STILL had nothing about it. THEY DIDN’T EVEN TALK ABOUT IT! The focus was Black Lives Matter and alleged police brutality, not even a mention of the election except for when the host mentioned it to segue into the story! AND THE STORY DOESN’T EVEN TALK ABOUT IT!
But let’s pretend CNN isn’t completely incompetent here and let’s say they did mention Russia at least ONCE during the “exclusive details”. How exactly would Russia use Pokemon GO to put Trump in the White House? The target audience for the app is mostly children, with some young adults wanting to live out their childhood dreams of catching Pokemon.
Children don’t exactly vote, and, unless Russia somehow put subliminal messages that got Democrats to not go vote, I don’t see how Pokemon GO kept people from voting.
I think we’re seeing a new low for the MSM. How would it make sense to say that Russia interfered with the election using an app about walking around and capturing Japanese monsters? And then, they don’t even mention it in the story? That’s very pathetic and pitiful. That’s not journalism, that’s comedy, right there. They are so incompetent that they decided to run that story and make it about Russian collusion.
If anything, it sounds more like a Democrat strategy than anything else. If the user encouraged people to visit sites of police brutality and honor the criminal victims, how is that going to get TRUMP in the White House? If anything, it would’ve gotten HILLARY more votes. The Left is the one that sides with these criminal victims, not the Republicans.
So, as you can see, this story is so full of holes it’s basically the equivalent to journalistic Swiss cheese. And I’m not the only one who notices the ignorance and incompetence in the story. One Twitter user shared a photo of Vladimir Putin fishing, photoshopped to look as though he caught one of the Fish type Pokemon in the game and captioned it: “CNN: ‘Pokemon Go’ was used by Russian trolls to sow discord on social media.”
Another Twitter user said: “I was gonna vote in November but then Russian Bulbasaur (another Pokemon) told me ‘not to Pokemon go to the polls after all’ (a reference to Hillary’s pathetic pun, calling for people to “pokemon go” to the polls to vote) and I foolishly assented.”
The point is that this story was so insanely ridiculous that it just begged for ridicule. And I (along with many others) happily obliged.
But ridicule isn’t the only thing to talk about here. A Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman absolutely tore into CNN for this. “According to CNN logic, African Americans shape their public stance playing Pokemon”.
That completely destroys CNN, doesn’t it? She called out the network for being racist, with them essentially saying that Pokemon GO influences black people’s vote. I honestly didn’t see that one coming.
Finally, an attorney with specializations in International and Criminal Law mentioned what I said earlier in the article: that CNN doesn’t even mention how Russia meddled in the elections. “It does not even talk about the election. In fact, CNN has been crying from the hilltops about Russia meddling in the elections from day one. We don’t know what’s happened. We do not know the facts, the evidence of this ‘CNN investigation’. For CNN to be targeting or highlighting something like this as breaking news, specifically highlighting any elements from Pokemon GO within the investigation without providing any evidence, is actually kind of indicative of how little facts they’ve had and how much they are trying to continue to paint this election as a big Russian conspiracy.”
An excellent way to sum it up. And a great example of how the Left is losing their minds.
I’ve already mentioned in a previous article how the Left is losing their minds, and this is just further proof. They are actually looking for evidence of collusion within A CHILDREN’S APP! They are so infatuated with finding any sort of evidence that they will look ANYWHERE for anything on the subject. And the best part of it was how they didn’t really even talk about it in the end.
It’s as though they realized just how stupid that sounds, but didn’t have time to go with a different story, so they had to roll with it. Maybe that’s giving CNN too much credit. They probably don’t realize how ridiculous it sounded and appeared.
But it’s interesting just how insane the Left seems to be getting. Trump messed them up bad!
Here’s some Biblical advice for CNN:
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.”
Author: Freddie Drake.
The biggest piece of news circulating around this week is that Donald Trump Jr. had e-mail conversations 'with' a Russian lawyer who 'said to have info' to “’incriminate’ Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as ‘part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump”, according to Fox News. Well, the e-mails were really between Trump Jr. and Rob Goldstone, an acquaintance who arranged for Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya to meet with the president’s son, Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner.
But to the Left, the part that the Russian lawyer never exchanged an email with Junior is irrelevant. The Left sees this and immediately shouts at the top of their lungs that “Trump colluded with Russia” once again. The Left has become a broken record, at this point. But here’s the interesting thing about this story in particular: THERE’S ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO THESE E-MAILS! Trump Jr. released the entire e-mail chain via Twitter. All those e-mails showed was that Rob was trying to set up a meeting between Trump Jr. and the Russian lawyer. That’s it! That’s what the Left is salivating about! That’s what the Left is alleging Trump Jr. of treason for!
In the meantime, we see TENS OF THOUSANDS OF E-MAILS THAT GOT DESTROYED BY HILLARY AND THE LEFT DOESN’T EVEN BAT AN EYE! Hillary destroyed well over 30,000 e-mails and the server they were saved in, because she had something to hide. And the MSM sweeps that under the rug. Trump Jr. releases the information of a couple of e-mails and the MSM WANTS HIS AND HIS FATHER’S HEADS!
There’s no actual evidence of collusion, even in this e-mail chain. Trump Jr’s. biggest crime? Trying to be set up on a meeting. That’s it! He just wanted to talk! Meanwhile, Hillary accepted donations from foreign countries during the campaign trail via the Clinton Foundation and not a single Leftist cares at all.
This is simply nothing more than the Left’s latest attempt at destroying Trump by falsely claiming he colluded with Russia to get to the White House. This, along with everything else up to this point, leads to nowhere on the matter. The Left is no closer today to unseating and destroying Trump as they were when the election results came in.
And the interesting part? Not a single Trump supporter cares. I’ve heard multiple people call in on the Rush Limbaugh show to say that they don’t care about anything related to the whole “Trump colluded with Russia” narrative. And frankly, the only reason I care about it is because I want to expose the Left's evil intentions. Otherwise, I too, would not care about this whole thing.
And that’s where the Left loses their edge. I’ve said this in the past, but I’ll say it again: The Left targets Trump supporters as much as they target their own base. It’s not enough for them to get their own base to believe the b.s. they spew out. They also want YOU to believe it. They want YOU to abandon all hope for the Trump administration and abandon all support for him. They want YOU to believe there is no hope for the future Trump wants to make, or that Trump isn’t planning on Making America Great Again as he promised. They want YOU to be lost.
If you remember throughout the campaign, nearly every single poll out there had Hillary winning the election either by a few points or in a landslide. They ALWAYS do this. They ALWAYS show these kinds of polls to discourage YOU from voting or supporting your candidate. After all, who wants to support a clear loser, right? That’s their tactic. They failed with the polls, but they still believe they can discourage you, particularly throughout the next 4 years.
They still believe they can get you to feel panicked and scared that Trump is guilty of a massive lie the Left has told enough times that they now themselves believe. The thing is: no matter how many times you tell a lie, it will never become the truth.
For the past half-year, the Left has been reporting this lie nearly every single day. And for the past half-year, they said they would be dropping a bomb on Trump and prove he colluded with Russia. And for the past half-year, they've found NOTHING. But that doesn’t exactly matter, does it?
They’ve already convinced their base that Trump colluded with Russia. I’ve seen multiple people on social media shout at Trump supporters that Trump cheated and is BFF’s with Putin. They’ve been thoroughly brainwashed by the Left. Reason and logic don’t matter to them. The fact that there is no evidence doesn’t matter to a Leftist. They believe Trump cheated, so he must have.
The Left has been successful in getting their base to eat from the palm of their hands. But they will never be successful in convincing a single Trump supporter to abandon him. And yes, I’ve seen those phony “Trump supporters” on t.v. saying that they can no longer support the president. They don’t fool me or anyone else out there. They were never Trump supporters to begin with - or they've been paid by the media/democrats.
The Left may be able to deceive their own base with amazing results, but they will never be able to deceive Trump supporters. Many no longer care about this whole Russia business. The Left lost on this one. Not that they will stop trying. Not that they will believe they’ve lost in any way, either.
Look at the devil, for example. He knows what’s coming to him. He knows what God’s plans are for him. He can’t escape it or fight it. And yet, he will continue trying to deceive the world into following him. He knows he won’t win against God, but he is determined to bring down as many people as he possibly can. The more people he can get to not follow God, the better.
The Left is very much the same way. It doesn’t matter if they are constantly proven wrong. It doesn’t matter if they are swiftly defeated in elections. If they can get people to believe every word they say and eventually get to the point where they can be in power once again, who cares what the truth is? They HATE the truth.
