Like a market bubble popping, every mass hysteria hits a peak and reverses. But you can never predict when. You only recognize it in hindsight, because you never know how big the hysteria can grow. In this case, the Trump-Russia hysteria.
Hillary’s recent “Blame everyone but me” appearance is drawing bad reviews. Via Breitbart, Andrea Mitchell called Hillary a ‘conspiracy theorist’ for her Trumprussia allegations.
Mitchell did it while sitting in the chair of madcap conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow, no less. This is the same Andrea Mitchell who was visibly ready to lick Hillary’s boots, a year ago. When you’ve lost Andrea Mitchell…well, you still need to lose Mika Brzezinski among others. But it’s a start.
And former FBI Director James Comey’s appearance before Congress keeps getting delayed. Could it be a sign that the Trumprussia conspiracy theorists are having trouble with inventing their own facts and tampering with Comey’s testimony so it will align?
A recent kill shot on Hannity failed (as USAA has de-boycotted him). And it seems to me that left-wing rioters have been a tad quieter lately; perhaps frightened by what happened to Eric Clanton and/or the fact that Trump is still around. Finally, we have Kathy Griffin brouhaha in which she “went too far”, so that she even lost CNN.
Do these things mean that Ninth Thermidor is here, for the Trumprussian Democrats who have been running wild in these last several months? Or am I calling it too early?
UPDATE: More on Hillary’s interview, because it’s too wild to pass up. She keeps her title as The Biggest Liar Known to Humankind.
- She claims that her e-mail scandal was “the biggest nothingburger ever.” It mattered only because The New York Times “covered it like it was Pearl Harbor.”
“Well if you went all the way back, doing things that others have done before was no longer acceptable. I didn’t break any rule nobody said don’t do this. I was very responsible and not at all careless.”
False. Clinton knowingly violated laws about classified material that have put other Americans in jail. She likely exposed the material to hackers. She then lied about it – and obstructed FBI investigators with large-scale, intentional destruction of evidence. Even former Director Comey, who let her off the hook, felt compelled to call her “extremely careless”.
- Skipping over the plausible likelihood of Russia not having hacked the DNC, and the fact that the emails leaked from the DNC were genuine and showed and the DNC engaged in wrong-doing, Hillary asks the swamp-fever question, “How did [the Russians] know what [pro-Trump political] messages to deliver? Who told them? Who were they coordinating with or colluding with? …The Russians…could not have known how best to weaponize that information unless they had been guided by Americans.”
- She alleges there were “1000 Russian agents…connected to the bots” at Facebook who somehow swayed voters.
(Note: The reverse is probably true. For example, Google may have manipulated Autocomplete and search results to sway voters toward her, and YouTube and Facebook are rife with complaints of pro-Left, anti-Right censorship.)
- Regarding her controversial speech at Goldman Sachs (that WikiLeaks exposed), her excuse for it is: Of course she did it, they paid her.
Tucker Carlson rightly eviscerates her as a Big Lie practitioner, proclaiming “a conspiracy so vast that she doesn’t need to prove it.”
I would like to know if her tech-professional audience was stunned by her poor performance, or nodded their heads in sympathy?
