The Democratic Party claim “17 US intelligence agencies say Russia hacked the 2016 election for Donald Trump,” is turning out to be something very different from the Democrats’ dream.
The Democratic Party claim “Russia hacked the election for Donald Trump” evaporated with the replayed August 2016 tape of President Obama saying “Everyone knows there has never been a hacked, manipulated national election! It’s just too diffuse…” and on. We applauded as that has long been our point, but now the questions are, “Was there a Russian attempt to help Hillary? Did Mr. Obama and the DNC know it, and say nothing?” That would be treason, or in bullet-proof “DC” a felony.
We remember well Mr. Obama’s “hot mic” remark to Russian President Medvedev, “Tell Vlad I’ll have more flexibility after the election,” and Mr. Obama’s action canceling NATO’s missile defense plan. This in the light of previously recorded Obama remarks to President Medvedev,” …on all these issues, but particularly missile defense this, this, can be solved.” Collusion?
The American left has a natural ally in Communist nations given their philosophical base, “From each as he may give. To each as he may vote.” I know, the original says, “To each as he may need,” but that has never been the case and it is still a fact we are at odds with many of these countries and at best our relationships with them are “at arm’s length.” Our mutual interests with the USSR in World War II and now access to the International Space Station are matters of record. Are the Democrats that callous? Frankly, there is no reason to be where the war is history and there is nothing in space but lethal radiation and UFOs.
Russia suffered greatly in World War II. They lost 27 million people, 40% of their male population, a wound not yet healed. They have endemic problems in grain production as their five grain farming regions are all north of Chicago and communism has never been good at agriculture where work and determination are critical. Socialism teaches people to expect free stuff. The more we study economics do we see grain production is our basis. Russia dearly needs what America has learned and perfected in agriculture.
Meanwhile, back at the election, it is increasingly appearing Mr. Obama was not concerned about Russian hacking attempts in our elections as Hillary was well ahead in campaign polling and Russia had every reason to promote her ascendancy. Not only was her malfunctioning “Reset Button” a running joke, but they had gotten 20% of all North American uranium production when she was Secretary of State for a $104 million donation to the Clinton Foundation and a $500,000 fee to Bill for a 20 minute speech in Moscow.
That the Russians wanted Hillary is further supported by the fact “RT,” Russian Television, had eight commentators and all strongly promoting Hillary! This is a fact not yet reported in major media to this day and only discovered by a Lake County, California pear grower, Phil Murphy, who observed it and made note in a local talk show! If Russia wanted Mr. Trump to win they surely would have their commentators singing his praises and not nipping at him as they were. A serious examination makes the claim “Russia wanted Trump to win!” a laugh line.
Recently, Martha Radditz, subbing for George Stephanopolis, on ABC Sunday Week said, “We know from the US intelligence community that Russia meddled with the US with the goal of weakening Hillary Clinton and propping up Donald Trump.” The “US intelligence community” has been utterly silent on this matter, offering no evidence of any kind! Martha broke down and cried on national TV when Hillary lost!
During the campaign Mr. Trump was rattling swords on NATO, the Middle East, Ukraine, Crimea, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, the latter four of which are critical to Russia’s need for warm water ports, an issue that has to be resolved once-and-for-all to settle Russia.
We object to the US stance on the Crimean issue as they had a plebicite that passed by 90%. 80% of the people there are ethnic Russians. There is good reason to question any election with 90% voting one way, but in a plebicite it is possible and we should accept it. No violence occurred in or after that election.
As our 2016 campaign developed the polls appeared to be consistent for a Hillary victory if not a landslide. They were wrong because pollsters have learned they have to tell clients what they want to hear or they lose them and switch until someone does. During the 2008 campaign season we were called by the Rassmussen polling organization four times with the first call in March. It was a classification survey to determine our politics. The calls from August on were real polling calls and gave away the game.
Scott Rassmussen advertises he robocalls large numbers across the nation, not just in one state like other pollsters and it is far more likely people would admit to a machine they were not voting for Mr. Obama than they would to a person who would think they were racist. Rassmussen had more accurate polls in 2008, but we believe in early polling he kept all his clients happy by sample selection to control poll outcomes
Where we were classified “Conservative” we would be omitted in surveys done for Democrats who wanted to hear they were winning. When Scott had to publish what was really going on we were included for a validly profiled sample. In the last two weeks he would only use such samples to protect his prognostitory reputation. Games of this kind were telling Hillary she was going to win in 2016 and the networks were “push polling” selected samples to convince Republican voters all was lost, “Why bother!”
Hillary is not well and a political campaign is a strenuous undertaking, but she appears to be thinking of 2020 apparently expecting Mr. Trump will be seen as a disaster if major media and Democratic Party regulars can give him “death by a thousand cuts.” That effort is rolling, but CNN will fall under the several multimillion Dollar lawsuits they have earned as well the New York Times plus their internal problems. The New York Times will likely lose millions to Sarah Palin after accusing her of being responsible for the Representative Gabby Giffords attack! You did not have to be a lawyer to know what will happen in that case.
Nonetheless the insanity continues with a presenter on National Public TV saying, “Russia has not been able to produce any evidence they did not try to hack into our election.” Apparently these people are not aware it is not possible to prove a negative proposition, but that seems to be the philosophy of the Democratic Party.
