Hypocrisy for the win

As someone who’s run for office five times, if the Devil called me and said he wanted to set up a meeting to give me opposition research on my opponent, I’d be on the first trolley to Hell to get it.

And any politician who tells you otherwise is a bald-faced liar.

Hillary Did It

I am still increasingly of the mind that this was a Democratic trick. Again, the Russians wanted to sow discord in the process. No one, including the Russians, thought Trump could win. It would make sense to hedge their bets and try to influence both sides, especially because they wanted the Magnitsky Act overturned and didn’t think Trump would win.

But you’ve got Fusion GPS, a Democrat firm preparing an oppo research file on Trump that claims he worked with the Russians, also working with Rinat Akhmetshin and Natalia Veselnitskaya. The latter is the lawyer who met with Trump. The former, if NBC News is to be believed, sounds like it might have been the other person at the meeting.

Obama’s Fault

Donald Trump, Jr. broke no laws, likely broke no ethics, election ethics rules. If you have a problem with what Russia is doing with regards to our elections, then you have a problem with what Barack Obama did to stop them from doing it. He apparently never stopped any of this from happening.

Coup D’etat

This is an effort to subvert the administration of President Donald Trump. It is nothing less, it is an effort by the deep state to roll over a duly elected president and a legitimate government. And to break the will of the American people. This is no longer about Republicans and Democrats and conservatives and liberals, this is about a full on assault by the left, the Democratic party to absolutely carry out a coup d’etat against President Trump aided by the left-wing media.

Where’s the Crime?

If the Russian KGB chief is talking to Paul Manafort and the chief says, ‘You know, I’ve got this dirt here that says Hillary Clinton was this or that,’ and Paul Manafort says, ‘Next Wednesday, why don’t you release that, that’d be great for us.’ That’s not — I don’t know that that’s a crime at all. What’s the crime?

Et tu, Heilemann?

Now Donald Trump is taking is action. Somebody said the other day on another network when trump gave his speech to the joint session, this is the moment when he becomes president. I think that the moment when someone becomes President of the United States is the moment when they first use American military might. Whether they like him or don’t like him, that’s the moment where you stand back and say, okay, he’s the president of the United States.

I think that it’s been an important reminder to all Americans that we have a judiciary that has taken far too much power and become in many cases a supreme branch of government. The end result of this, though, is that our opponents, the media, and the whole world will soon see, as we begin to take further actions, that the powers of the president to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned.
