‘RussiaGate’ Returns as Top Air Force General Revives ‘Kremlin Boogeyman’ Story

With the 2022 midterms looking ever worse for the Democrats, it’s apparently time to roll out the old “Russian boogeyman” gibberish.

For a vast majority of the Trump presidency, there was a wild theory being conflated by the liberal left and their surrogates in the mainstream media in which the Commander in Chief himself was some sort of Russian double agent.

While those espousing the conspiracy theory never were able to provide concrete evidence of their concerns, their theory seemed to revolve around the idea that the Kremlin was using armies of internet trolls to sway the American public to support Donald Trump, with the longtime NYC business mogul being under Vlad Putin’s control due to some bizarre blackmail scheme.

But, as with a number of wild theories involving Trump, the truth was much stranger than the fiction, and it turns out that the story behind the blackmail material was provided by a man paid by the Democrats to find such material, and then used by the Obama administration to produce a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.

“RussiaGate” quickly became “ObamaGate”, and many within the political community simply stopped talking about Russian influence now that all roads led back to No. 44’s dirty deeds.

But this week, the theory came back in a big way, as one of the Air Force’s top brass revived it.

In an exclusive interview, Lt. Gen. S. Clinton Hinote, the Air Force‘s deputy chief of staff for strategy, integration and requirements, warned that the internal divisions on display in America could fundamentally weaken the country and chip away at American moral leadership around the world. He spoke as the Pentagon was trying to formulate guidelines to define and weed out what officials call extremist and anti-government views in the ranks.

The outspoken Gen. Hinote made headlines earlier this year after saying that “we are in danger of losing our republic” following the Jan. 6 Capitol riot seeking to block the ratification of the November 2020 election results. He offered similarly bleak assessments this week.

“As somebody who studies threats around the world and has pledged to defend the Constitution of the United States, one of the things that gives me the most concern is the lack of unity that is represented by something … like Jan. 6,” Gen. Hinote said. “I worry deeply that some of the norms that have kept us strong and have put us in a position of leadership around the world have eroded over time … We’ve got to be honest with ourselves. We’re playing with fire if we can’t figure this out as a people and come together and figure out a way to work out our differences peaceably.”

And then:

“I remember going out to my car that’s out here in front of the Pentagon … and I remember thinking to myself as I closed the door, ‘I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a true constitutional threat to the United States,’” he said. “I believe that when Russian bots are attacking our conversations with each other in ways that are meant to drive us to poles and separate us right down the middle, I worry a lot that that is a threat to the Constitution of the United States. I still believe that today.”

Of course, the timing of this tidbit is fairly transparent, as Democrats continue to appear weaker and weaker ahead of the 2022 midterms, and the big Russian boogeyman will continue to be rolled out in an attempt to curb the Republicans’ impending congressional revival.

Polling Shows Abysmal Support for Biden Reelection…Among Democrats

The numbers are simply staggering.

Published

on

US President Joe Biden’s approval ratings are abysmal.  They’re so terrible, in fact, that the White House really has no way of denying it any longer.  Instead, they’ve turned to a strategy of simply suggesting that Biden will run for reelection again, essentially putting off all of the controversy until the voters have a chance to chime in.

It’s a slick trick, that’s for sure, but the latest polling among Democrats now shows why this is a terrible idea.

Just over one-third of Democrats want to see President Joe Biden as the candidate on the 2024 Democrat presidential ticket, an I&I/TIPP poll released Monday found.

The survey asked respondents, “Who do you want to see run for president on the Democratic ticket in 2024?”

Overall, 22 percent said Biden, followed by 12 percent who said Vice President Kamala Harris, four percent who said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, and three percent who said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-MA), and Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. The remaining potential candidates garnered two percent support or less. Thirty-one percent, overall, say they are unsure.

It gets worse…

Even among Democrats, specifically, Biden fails to see overwhelming support, as only 37 percent say they want to see him run again on the Democrat ticket in the next presidential election cycle. Another 16 percent of Democrats chose Harris, and 13 percent, overall, remain unsure.

37 percent of independents say they are “not sure” who they want to see run on the Democrat ticket, but only eight percent say it should be Biden.

And then, in a troubling blow to Biden’s perceived ability to snatch up votes in the political middle, only 8% of independents said that they were in favor of Biden running again.
