Now this news ought to make for some interesting posts and keep the mentally deficient busy…..
There are conspiracies around every issue in this country these days…some are pretty clever and others are just from the stupid side of thinking.
Remember back in the day when Trump was a “birther”….he spent every minute of an interview railing against Obama as a Muslim or not born in this country…and demanded proof of his citizenship….remember those days? (That question is for normal people not Trump supporters)
Anyway I read a piece in the WaPo (let me say here that I do not use them often as a source but from time to time they do have some interesting articles)……
First, a history refresher: For the past nine years, a smattering of Americans, most recently led by our now president-elect, have insisted that Barack Obama is a Muslim born in Kenya.
For years, Donald Trump was unrelenting in his insistence that Obama prove beyond existing proof that he was born in Hawaii and not in the African country of his biological father. That Obama said he is a Christian wasn’t enough to persuade Trump’s followers, who apparently know a Christian when they see one.
Okay this is a bit much but so was the total bullshit about Obama.
How long before someone takes all of Trump’s defense of Russia as an indication that he is a secret Russia agent? (Think Manchurian Candidate, the original not the cheesy re-make)
After writing this draft news broke……
CNN is reporting on bombshell classified documents presented to Donald Trump and President Obama last week. The intelligence documents allege that Russian operatives have—or at least claim to have—compromising information, both financial and personal, on Trump. The documents have been circulating since before the election—Mother Jones actually reported on them in October—and took on “a kind of legendary status among journalists, lawmakers, and intelligence officials,” according to BuzzFeed. US intelligence officials have now investigated the former British intelligence operative behind a lot of the information, as well his sources, and determined them to be credible. The FBI is investigating, and intelligence agencies want Trump to know that these allegations are out there.
The details inside the documents haven’t been verified, but BuzzFeed has published the documents in whole “so that Americans can make up their own minds.” The documents claim Russia has been “cultivating, supporting, and assisting” Trump for years. They state Trump surrogates and Russian government intermediaries met continuously to exchange information during the campaign and that Trump accepted intelligence on political rivals from the Kremlin. The documents also state that Russian operatives claim to have enough dirt to blackmail Trump, including “perverted sexual acts” recorded by Russian intelligence. The Trump campaign has not commented on the documents.
CNN? Aren’t they the least trusted news site?
Donald Trump vehemently denied allegations of collusion between his campaign and Russia. Trump turned to Twitter to decry reports by CNN and BuzzFeed, calling it a “witch hunt” by the media.
“Fake news – a total political witch hunt!” the president-elect wrote after CNN reported that intelligence leaders had presented a two-page summary of a collection of memos claiming Russia had compromising information about him. The report also claimed that members of his team continued to pass information along to Russia.
Okay this is driving the news cycle for now….is that what it is suppose to do? Divert attention? If so from what?
Keep in mind none of this, like the “birther” bullshit, is confirmed……
So just as Mr. Trump asked those years ago….where’s the proof he is not a Russian spy?
