This is just another dirty trick of political perception

The attacks on the Donald Trump presidency have turned from annoying and persistent to outrageous and smothering and now this.

The attacks on the Donald Trump presidency have turned from annoying and persistent to outrageous and smothering over the course of the last few weeks, and Trump Derangement Syndrome is now on full display.

Of course, we’ve had our fair share of conspiracy theories surrounding the President for some time, thanks to the desperation that Hillary Clinton displayed during her doomed 2016 presidential campaign.  On her way toward obscurity, and with the writing clearly on the wall of her offices, the former First Lady kicked off a conspiracy theory to end all conspiracy theories:  That Donald Trump was colluding with the Kremlin to beat her in the election.

This turned out to simply be a case of Clinton scapegoating her campaign’s corrupt actions by blaming Russia for the exposure of these crimes against democracy – never once addressing the fact that all of these accusations were absolutely true and taken directly from her campaign’s own correspondence.

Now, to expound on this flawed theory, democratic Representative Adam Schiff is going all out while appearing on a political podcast.

Schiff said, “Why would the president undermine NATO? Why would the president undermine Europe? Why would the president talk about bringing Russia back into the G8, when they still occupy their neighbor? Why would the president do all these things? Why would the president deny the obvious, that the Russians intervened in our election? You know, it could be that there is just some pathology at work with him, that he is so terrified that his election was illegitimate that he is responding in this way. So maybe there’s a pathology. But it’s also quite possible that the Russians have compromising material on him, that the Russians were laundering money through his businesses, and he knows that, and they know that. It’s also quite possible that the president believes the Russians have compromising information on him. … But in terms of the United States and our national security and our interests, what matters most is the president’s actions. And he is acting like someone compromised.”

He later added, “[O]ne of the terrible realizations of the last year and a half for me is that the damage that the Russians have done to our democracy, by meddling in our election, is nothing compared to the damage our own president is doing to our democracy by attacking the Justice Department and by denigrating our press, which, you know, in the same full-throated endorsement of the Kremlin, he attacks the real enemy, our free press. So, yes, I think that he is doing enormous damage to our national security beyond anything the Russians could do to us.”

Schiff’s entire point here is to say, “even if Russia’s involvement did not include a willing or aware Donald Trump, he is still ripe for impeachment…which is ostensibly false.

Of course, the mainstream media just needs the word associations between Trump and Russia to stick in order to subtly massage the idea of collusion into the minds of  the American people.

In other words:  This is just another dirty trick of political perception.

Despite Major Pushback, Bernie Sanders Sticks with Felon Voting Stance

Bernie Sanders is sticking to his guns on this one, despite the immediate and harsh feedback that he has received from Americans on the issue.

Bernie Sanders, the de facto frontrunner in the current 2020 democratic field, may have exposed his own achilles heel on television earlier this week. Sanders, a democratic socialist by nature, Independent Senator officially, and a democratic Presidential candidate out of necessity, has long been on the outside looking in at mainstream politics.  Now, thanks to the pure and unadulterated insanity of the world we live in, he has risen to the left’s pile of possible presidents; his views no longer so far to the left…now that the center is moving toward him. But don’t let a desensitized democratic constituency make you believe that Bernie wouldn’t still have some bizarre, left-field ideas out there to shock us with.  Sanders himself, during a CNN town hall event this week, stated his belief that incarcerated felons should have the right to vote.  When pressed by CNN host Chris Cuomo, who asked if the Boston Marathon Bomber should be allowed to vote, Bernie upheld his belief to a stunned crowd. The media fallout was almost immediate, and has been continuing ever since. Bernie Sanders, for his part, is shrugging this aside and now tripling-down on his belief at a “She The People” event. “And I was told this was a terrible idea despite the fact that in Canada and in countries all over the world — why did I say that?” Sanders said. “I said that because the right to vote is essential. If you are a citizen, you have the right to vote.” Then Sanders compared that right to voting rights connection to race and gender. “And that is a right we must protect because we know the history of this country. We know that women didn’t have the right to vote,” Sanders said. “We know that African Americans didn’t have the rights…

CONFIRMED: Beto Said He Did Not Flee 1998 DWI, Officers At the Scene Say He’s Lying

BUSTED!

It was reported during his failed Senate run last year that former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (TX) fled the scene of a DWI over two decades ago. Beto has denied this happened. However, officers at the scene of the crime say Beto did, in fact, attempt to flee. Busted. From Texas Tribune: The former police officer who arrested Beto O’Rourke for driving drunk in 1998, along with the sergeant who signed the incident report, both say they believe now what they reported at the time: that O’Rourke tried to leave the scene of the wreck he caused. O’Rourke admits he was intoxicated and says there is no justification for his actions, but he has denied that he tried to flee. […] Neither the investigating officer, Richard Carrera, nor his former supervisor, Gary Hargrove, specifically recalls the events of that night more than 20 years ago. But both of the former Anthony Police Department officers told The Texas Tribune they have no doubt the report they compiled and signed is accurate. A Beto spokesman noted, “Beto’s DWI is something he has long publicly and openly addressed over the last 20 years at town halls, on the debate stage, during interviews and in Op-Eds, calling it a serious mistake for which there is no excuse. This has been widely and repeatedly reported on.” LOOK (zoom in): Beto O’Rourke, truth teller? Not so much. In that respect, he actually fits in quite swimmingly with the other 2,385 Democrat presidential candidates. Check this out… From Daily Wire: Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke made five false statements in an attack on President Donald Trump this week when he was confronted over why he compared the president to the Third Reich. O’Rourke noted, “I compared the rhetoric that the president has employed to the rhetoric…
