the Russians are coming…

Why is the news media and the Democratic Party fixated on the Trump campaign’s supposed collusion with the Russians? Where is the evidence that created the need for a special prosecutor? If a special prosecutor actually found some evidence of collusion, what would be the charge? What did the Russians do to affect our elections that any two-bit hacker could not have done?

And still, the people most responsible for skewing our elections (From out the blue, to make certain the Republican nominee was beatable, the news media gave Trump disproportionate news coverage.) are still all a twitter about Russian meddling.

Russia is a riddle
wrapped in a mystery
inside an enigma.

Winston Churchill

The Russians are coming, The Russians are coming….
is the title of a 1966 comedic spoof based on the accidental beaching of a Russian sub
off the coast of a small fictional New England island town during the midst
of the Cold War.
The film stared Alan Arkin and Carl Reiner so you can only imagine the off the chain humor.

Fast forwarding all these many years later and history oddly seems to be repeating itself,
but this time it’s not over a comedic movie yet we can still hear that familiar war cry…
that the Russians are coming…

I’ve really tried, really really I have tried, to ignore the latest brouhaha concerning
Mother Russia and all things Russian…
all the latest “did they, didn’t they” sort of mumbo jumbo that is currently consuming all
things political…

  1. A standard tactic of the Left is to hallucinate something totally ridiculous, assign it to the opposition and then demand that the opposition explain the hallucination.

    “The narrative” is actually the latest leftist hallucination to hit the daily fake news feed.

  2. I remain completely baffled,Tom. Where I live we have these weird contradictions going on, “the Russians are coming, Trump is colluding with the Russians,” and yet we ourselves are praising Marxism, defiantly celebrating our Lenin statues,championing the cause of socialism. Of course on the other side of the aisle, we have people expressing Putin envy, forever posting memes of a shirtless Putin riding a bear. Perhaps they do it to cause a reaction, to toy with the opposition.

  3. “Why is the news media and the Democratic Party fixated on the Trump campaign’s supposed collusion with the Russians?” Seeing as Trump’s own justice department appointed the special prosecutor and the revelations of comfortable ties between the Russians Manafort, Flynn, and others, I think Rod J. Rosenstein, the guy who might have said Comey should be fired, made the right call. In the case of Flynn, who now has declined the Congressional Subpoena, finding out to what extent his ties extend after he lied to the Vice President is important, not just for Trump but for the accountability of the executive branch. As the Code of Executive Ethics states: “Employees shall endeavor to avoid any actions creating the appearance that they are violating the law or the ethical standards promulgated pursuant to this order.” Removing the appearance of misconduct allows the public to have faith in the government.

      What the appointment does is take the pressure off Rod J. Rosenstein.

      Trump’s campaign has been investigated at least sense July 2016. Nobody has said there is any evidence of collusion. What is funny is that even if there had been such collusion, it would not have been illegal.

      Anyway, given what the Democrats are calling Russian hacking, it would not take a nation state to do any such thing. So if the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians, they did not get much out of it they could not have gotten out of Nigerian email con artists.

      1. “What the appointment does is take the pressure off Rod J. Rosenstein.” If by pressure you mean appearance of wrongdoing, then yes. Personally, I think one should have been appointed when the controversy began and taken it away from Comey from the beginning.

        “What is funny is that even if there had been such collusion, it would not have been illegal.” Again, I refer to the code of executive ethics. Even the appearance of wrongdoing is wrong. Public officials are tasked with maintaining the public’s trust. If they cannot do that, they have failed in their jobs.

        Also, you err in the assumption that collusion would not be illegal. It entirely depends on the extent. With Flynn having worked as an undisclosed foreign agent and lied to the Vice President as to his relations with Russians, the extent of the collusion needs to be determined. Perhaps there really is nothing there, but the America people deserve to know if there is.
