More politics

| September 30, 2020

I’ll leave the debate coverage in the more than capable hands of Ex-PH2, but I did come across a couple of articles I thought you guys might enjoy.

First up, Politico finally finds a Russian collusion hoax they don’t like.

Intel chief releases Russian disinfo on Hillary Clinton that was rejected by bipartisan Senate panel

Politico reports;

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Tuesday declassified a Russian intelligence assessment that was previously rejected by Democrats and Republicans on the Senate Intelligence Committee as having no factual basis, according to two sources familiar with the matter.

The extraordinary disclosure, released to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) earlier Tuesday, rankled Democrats, who said the move effectively put Russian disinformation into the public sphere in order to boost President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claims about the government’s efforts to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election.

“It’s very disturbing to me that, 35 days before an election, the director of national intelligence would release unverified Russian rumint,” or rumor intelligence, Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-Va.) told reporters.

And several former senior intelligence officials described Ratcliffe’s move as incendiary and irresponsible, given the manner in which he was publicly releasing unverified information that originated from a foreign adversary.

The assessment claims that Hillary Clinton, then a Democratic candidate for president, personally approved an effort “to stir up a scandal against U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump by tying him to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the Democratic National Committee.” But in his letter to Graham, Ratcliffe noted that the U.S. intelligence community “does not know the accuracy of this allegation or the extent to which the Russian intelligence analysis may reflect exaggeration or fabrication.”

I’m sure the esteemed Congressman from Virginia was even more aghast when the previous administration opened a national security counterintelligence case on a rival presidential campaign. I’m sure he also had pearls firmly clutched when the widely discredited (and immediately so) Russian disinformation contained in the Steele dossier was released.

The New York Times Confirms Trump Is a Genius

Another one from Politico.

While they do not think Trump is a “stable genius”, they do finally give him credit for being smart. As evidence they point to his alleged tax documents the NYT reported on this week. As if Trump himself is logging in to TurboTax and filing a 1040-EZ. He’s got a team of accountants and tax lawyers, just like every rich person and corporation has, to find every loophole imaginable. Which is why honest

It is refreshing that they have moved up to backhanded compliments. It’s probably the best Trump can ever hope for from the far-left “news” organization.

    Hitlery Clintoon and the entire Oblowme administration should have been under investigation starting on 31 January 2017. They should have all been in prison for treason and/or sedition since 28 February 2017. Four years of bull sh^t leading up to what we see today because that BITCH didn’t get her turn.

    I’m not a wealthy man in terms of money. My bills are paid, I have cookies, ice cream, beef, pork, and chicken in the freezerator. I have paid an accounting firm that is enrolled to practice before the IRS to do my taxes for the last 45 years. I have been audited 3 times and never once had to meet with the IRS personally. And each time the return was accepted as originally submitted. Best money spent…Evah!

    Yet to figure out why the whole “release the tax returns” is such a big deal thing. Smokescreen, false flag, strawman, whatever. Total Bullsh^t. The nefarious activities are buried so deeply, a tax return ain’t gonna tell you squat. But a forensic audit? Now we talking. Would love to see one of those on every politician that has sucked at the trough for the last 50 years.

    Loved Crooked Comey’s testimony yesterday about the info in the DNI’s letter. He didn’t remember anything he knew or did about Russia, Russia! The only I don’t recall phrase he didn’t utter under oath was Sgt. Shultz’s: “I know nothing.”
