Of course my recent post Study Finds Debating Table Lamp More Engaging Than Average Republican triggered a spirited debate. Ahhh, irony, it’s what’s for Discord. It was a much better debate than the lead up to the presidential election. Not that that’s saying much. My friend and blogvesary, Pokey McDooris, is all up in arms about this “salacious and unverified” dossier as it relates to the Russia probe, but what if it’s accurate? Is it really such a stretch that Mr. “Grab ’em by the pussy” could be salacious in private? Any port in a Stormy? And, if it remains unverified, don’t we just need a urine sample?
Here’s Pokey’s first comment on my article, which is essentially a list of leftwing atrocities:
1.) Ms. Clinton said repeatedly that she did not have any classified emails on her server.
2.) 113 emails on her private server were found to have classified information (three had classification markers)
3.) It is a crime to mishandle classified information…
(Sorry, I put the rest at the bottom of the page to spare you the other 47 points *sigh*.)
Mick Zano: Yes. As it turns out the court system’s process for obtaining a FISA and continuing one is very stringent and the Fox News inquiries into any suspected liberal wrongdoing …not so much.
This is an entirely different subject than the fact that Russia worked to influence our presidential election. The nation of Russia infiltrated our electoral process for the purpose of dividing us (Russia has a history of that–refer to my article on Stalin). This FACT should UNIFY us as Americans to do whatever is necessary to protect our Republic from the constant threat of infiltration from outside enemies.
How will we respond to such crisis?
It’s always the same thing, let’s avoid the collapse of the republic so we can catch the Clintons on some technicality. Let me assure you, the possible annulment of a presidency is not a technicality. Everything started with Papadapawhatsas, for bragging that Trump had dirt on Hillary from the Russians. Foreign agents were actively trying to groom Carter Page. He was on Trump’s team and at one point admitted he was an adviser to the Kremlin.
So it’s not news that Trump’s ‘best people’ either left or are being indicted? Should the FBI have still been focusing on Benghazi?
Anyone who had fears and suspicions of Trump and his cronies and their dubious ties to Russia should be commended and we should UNIFY around giving them front row seats for the impeachment proceedings.
This is not in the comment thread, but it’s my Hint of the Day:
Your version of events is shit, my friend, but only because your sources invariably are. That sounds a tad like all-or-nothing thinking, and it should be, but it isn’t. You wallow in the realm of either the bullshit or the trivial. When we discover most of Trump and Company were either compromised to the Russians and/or crooks, aren’t you going to feel a little silly?
What you’re failing to grasp, my friend, is how liberal politicians can muster a smattering of credibility, but your ilk has none, zero, nichts, nadda, zilch. Start citing actual news sources with your theories, or risk being ignored. Rightwing conspiracies have little to no credibility in the 21st century as they’ve led us down one too many rabbit holes. What valid point from past scandals can you point to that proved relevant? There’s next to nothing there. Just as there’s a difference between a president who fact-checkers claim lied eight times in eight years and one who lied eight times today. There’s a difference between four decades of Clinton investigations that uncovered little-to-no wrongdoing vs only one investigation that may end in treason. When this sad chapter is in the history books and it all turns out rather badly for The Donald, remember this simple trick: if Fox News is not covering something because they don’t think it’s relevant, it is. And if they are covering the shit out of something, it isn’t. Beware of this Russian-thing, Poke. When liberals investigate something there tends to be a reason. It’s a different approach, for sure. The day of reckoning is upon us, and, to the chagrin of conservatives far and wide, it will have little to do with Hillary Clinton.
Just now I read the released Dem memo. The FBI opened the investigation in July 2016, but received the Steele memo in September of that year. And when applying for an extension, the FBI clearly noted Steele’s political motivations. And the beat goes on…
*Here’s the rest of that list, as promised:
4.) James Comey said there is no evidence that her 30,000 deleted emails were deleted in an attempt to conceal information.
5.) President Obama told CBS in March 2005 that he learned about Clinton’s private server “through news reports.”
6.) President Obama had actually emailed Ms. Clinton on her private server.
7.) In June 2016, James Comey began writing Ms. Clinton’s exoneration letter before he interviewed her.
8.) Lorretta Lynch met with Bill Clinton while his wife was under investigation, and Lynch did not recuse herself.
9.) Sept. 2 2016–Peter Stryok and Lisa Paige discussed talking points that were prepared for them by FBI director Comey.
10.) Deputy Director McCabe testified before the committee in December 2017 that no surveillance warrant would have been sought from FISA without the Steele dossier information.
11.) The Steele dossier information was paid for by Hillary Clinton and the DNC.
12.) While the FBI was working to exonerate Hillary Clinton they were spying on Donald Trump’s campaign.
13.) Benghazi, Bergdahl, Uranium one. (Fine, I added that one for fun)
