The most important thing to understand about the investigations into Donald Trump’s sinister Russian connections is that the entire exercise is nothing more than political theatrics … grandstanding … showbiz at its worst.
Virtually everyone involved in this nonevent is himself a criminal who lives by a totally different set of rules than the gullible TV viewers who take the theatrical performances of politicians seriously. Heck, people were even enthralled when congressional thespians questioned Roger Clemens, Mark McGuire, and Sammy Sosa.
But theatrics aside, the objective of the Russian-connection investigations has nothing to do with finding or fixing any wrongdoings. Next to giving the lazy busybodies on Capitol Hill another chance to act like the big shots they aren’t, the main purpose of the investigations is to do anything and everything possible to stall the biggest government overhaul in American history.
Let’s give credit where credit is due and admit that the Dirty Dems and their McCain moles in the Republican Party have thus far been incredibly successful at slowing the Trump Train down to a crawl. And I can assure you with total confidence that behind closed doors Dirty Dems are yukking it up and high-fiving each other on their successes in diverting the public’s attention from just how quickly Donald Trump is moving to fulfill his promises.
Kind of like when Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said that “the stupidity of the American voter” made it possible for him and his partners in crime to hide Obamacare’s true costs from the public. These are very, VERY bad human beings who lack a conscience and harbor a deep-seated hatred for the average American.
Here’s the real bottom line to all this: Let’s suppose that this garbage expedition eventually stumbles across some evidence that would give an imaginative Dirty Dem enough ammunition to create a half-believable theory to support the idea that Russia tried to help Trump win the election. I doubt that will happen, but just to make my point, let’s stipulate to it.
My first question would then be: What’s the point? Russia has been doing this kind of thing since the days of Lenin in the early years of the Bolshevik Revolution. And U.S. intelligence agencies have been doing everything they can to spy on and destabilize Russia — as well as many other countries — during the past 200 years. So what’s new?
But there’s more. Now, how does a Russian spy, a Russian hacker, or a Russian hooker manage to convince even one United States citizen to change his or her vote? And even if that were possible, how could anyone prove that someone changed his vote because a Russki convinced him to do so?
If the government of Lithuanian, Germany, or South Africa openly supported a Horrible Hillary, Barack Obama, or Donald Trump, I ask again: So what? That’s their business. Any government or citizen of any country has a right to express support for any candidate in any other country.
We have no right to tell other countries what they can and cannot do on their own soil. I don’t think we even have a legal right to stop a foreign government from running ads in its own country in support of a U.S. presidential candidate. It’s a moot point, of course, because no country does it.
There’s only one thing that would be illegal, and that would be if someone found a way to tamper with voting machines in this country and actually change people’s ballots. But everyone agrees that that probably could never happen, and certainly did not happen in the last election.
The Dirty Dems, of course, always cheat with impunity, but not by tampering with voting machines. Their stock in trade is to pay people to vote multiple times or vote under the aliases of dead people. And, of course, finding ways for illegal aliens to vote is SOP for them.
That said, from what I’ve heard thus far, my guess is that the Trump-Russian connection is nothing more than Dirty Dem wishful thinking. I could be wrong, but I doubt it. In the meantime, all these hearings are a wonderful excuse for politicians to continue to avoid doing what their constituents sent them to Washington to do and gives them the opportunity to put their acting skills on display on a daily basis.
One good thing that might come out of all this is that the country’s most famous crooked cop, James Comey, appears to be getting himself into a hole from which there may be no escape. After he went to the trouble to read a list of felonies Horrible Hillary had committed, then concluded by saying that no reasonable person would prosecute her, he should have crawled quietly away and gotten into a high-paying job in the private sector before his reputation was damaged beyond repair. Comey needs to go — now!
Afterthought: While all this investigation nonsense is going on, I wonder if anyone but me finds it a bit strange, hypocritical, or out-and-out crooked that no investigation has ever been done on a president whose original birth certificate still remains under lock and key, whose college records remain sealed after eight years, who was caught repeatedly lying to the American people about his healthcare bill, who lied about the cause of four Americans losing their lives in a terrorist attack in Benghazi, and whose background includes solid ties to communist Frank Marshall Davis, American-hating black-liberation-theology preacher Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, to name just a few of his anti-American pals.
Oh, and by the way, while we’re talking about investigations that never happened — particularly Russian-connection investigations — let us not forget BHO’s famous words to then-Russian President Medvedev, “After my election, I have more flexibility,” to which Medvedev replied, “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir, and I stand with you.” How touching. Numbskull Nancy, Maniac Maxine, and Pocahontas would be calling for Trump’s impeachment if he had been the one to say those words to Medvedev.
If one were a cynic, he might be tempted to shout hypocrisy to the rooftops. But, nah … it’s just not right to badmouth our elected representatives. And with that, on with the big show in Washington!
