Perhaps at the 2020 DNC convention, the Democrats can replace their traditional straw boater hats with aluminum foil beanies. In case you missed it, it is now the official position of the Democrat Party that the FBI and the Russian Government conspired to throw the 2016 election to Donald Trump. As for evidence in support of this proposition, it amounts to “Hillary was supposed to win, but she didn’t.”
[The Democrat-Media Complex is engaging in a little sleight-of-hand here. By short-handing this conspiracy theory as “Russian hackers threw the election to Trump,” they make it sound to the average LIV and deranged Democrat like Russia rigged the vote somehow; perhaps by hacking into voting machines like attention-craving Leninist Jill Stein alleges (a conspiracy theory smacked down pretty hard by a Federal judge yesterday, who said it “borders on the irrational“). Actually, the allegation — coming from an anonymous source within the CIA and not shared by the FBI or other intelligence agencies — is that Russians hacked the Democrat National Committee and released those embarrassing emails showing that the DNC rigged the primary for Hillary, sold Government positions to Big Donors, expressed contempt for voters, and got involved in weird, cultish rituals. The Democrats are so desperate to deflect attention from the content of the emails that they are willing to poison relations with Russia and perhaps risk war.
Sidebar: Everything that was revealed in the Wikileaks emails could have been uncovered by an inquisitive press; but that would require the MFM to actually investigate and report instead of serving as the Democrat Party’s Ministry of Propaganda.
What sense would it make for Russian to favor Trump over Hillary? The Obama-Hillary foreign policy has been very, very good for Russian’s strategic interest over the last eight years. Under Clinton and Obama, the Russians have gotten:
- A nuclear arms treaty that substantially cut the American nuclear arsenal (and a promise from Obama to be even more ‘flexible’ in his second term).
- Cancellation of Missile Defense programs in Eastern Europe.
- No substantive American response to Russian aggression in Ukraine or the Balkans.
- A nuclear arms agreement with Russia’s ally, Iran, on very favorable terms to Iran (including $1.3 billion dollars in cold hard cash to the Mullahs).
- Hillary Clinton’s State Department approving the sale of 20% of the United States Uranium supply to Russia.
The Democrat-Media Complex is arguing that Vladimir Putin would rather have Donald Trump — an avowed “America First” candidate — over someone who had rolled over repeatedly at his command for the past eight years.
It doesn’t make any freakin’ sense.
The reason the Democrats are going down this road is mainly because they are deranged with grief and rage after losing the presidency. Some on the left are openly calling for the Electoral College or the Federal Courts to “invalidate” the election and install Hillary Clinton — a literal coup d’état. It is only possible to understand this when you put yourself in the position of people who are deranged and not very bright soaking up sixteen months of Democrat and Media propaganda calling Donald Trump a fascist, a sexist, a racist, a homophobe, and an “existential threat” to the very existence of life on Earth. The Democrat Party trusts that the same hyperemotional, “unaware and compliant” citizenry that votes for them will swallow this nonsensical conspiracy theory about “Russian hackers” and this will help destabilize and delegitimize the Trump The Democrat Party has thrived on derangement and hate since the Bush years. This was always the place that strategy was going to take them.
