To hear leftists on cable news tell it, theres a Russian behind every bush and tree. They hear everything you say, and see more of you than New Yorker magazine staff members saw of Jeffrey Toobin. In fact, the Russian disinformation plotters are more omniscient than Santa Claus. Youd be insane to deny them their will, theyre that good or so liberals believe.
Democrats have tried a lot of campaign strategies this election season youre a racist, now vote for me; the country sucks, let us run it; you dont know how bad you have it; etc., etc. but at the end theyve settled on an old favorite: RUSSIA!
Theyve been playing this game throughout the Trump administration Donald Trump has been everything from a Russian puppet to a Russian agent, depending on the day of the week. He was horrible at both, sending actual military assistance to Ukraine in the form of weapons, not just MREs and pillows. If youre doing the bidding of a dictator you dont aid a country that dictator has invaded with heavy weaponry.
The narrative that President Trump was in league with Putin didnt stand up to scrutiny, so now the left is trying a different approach with an old familiar ring: Russia is interfering in the election again.
Last time it was through a few thousand dollars in Facebook ads. I said at the time, if Russia can change an election with a few grand on absurd social media posts we should ask them to look at everything our government does, because that level of efficiency is amazing. This time, its through a strategy that would make a James Bond villain envious.
If were to believe what the Morning Joe-set is trying to sell, Russian operatives filled a laptop with pictures of Hunter Biden, including at least one of him unconscious with a crack pipe in his mouth, and a string of shady, if not incriminating, emails. They then sent that laptop to a computer repair shop more than a year and a half ago and left it on the off chance that Joe would not only enter the race for the Democrat nomination (it was dropped off a week before Joe announced), but that he would beat the other 700 Democrats in the field. If, in the event that he did all that, they could then unleash all that manufactured data on the public, but only after the computer was in the hands of the FBI for 10 months. Oh, and they got the people on those shady, if not incriminating, email threads to vouch for their authenticity. On top of all that, they also somehow convinced Joe, Hunter, and the entire Biden campaign to refuse to deny all of it was real.
Thats one hell of a plan. If the Russians can pull that off, wed be crazy to cross them. Maybe they also trained Toobin in how to use Zoom? Theres nothing they cant do!
Theoretically, if the Russians did all that because they wanted to help Donald Trump, they would have done something similar for all the viable candidates, right? Just in case, I mean. Where is the rest of it? Wheres the plot against Pete Buttigieg? Seems like the set-up for Kamala Harris would be relevant, doesnt it? Why waste it? Hit the campaign with a two-for.
Of course, everyone espousing the idea that Hunters laptop reeks of Russian disinformation knows theyre lying, they just dont care. Whos going to call them on it? Certainly no one they work with. On the contrary, if they want their contracts renewed, a shot at a job in a Biden administration, or even access to one they know theyd better toe the line. Not that its a tough choice for them, theyre on the team.
Maybe they think people will forget, that credibility and public trust will return to them once they stop spitting in our faces while telling us its raining?
More likely is that they just dont care. Their audiences are what they are; after lying to them for 3 years about collusion, they stuck around. Theres literally nothing they can do to lose the audience they have left and thats enough. Theyll make their millions, get good seats at restaurants in Manhattan (at least the ones that survive De Blasio and Cuomo), and will be the toasts of their social circles, so what do they care?
Jeffrey Toobins wife knows what her husband is hes fathered a child outside their marriage and has a history of, um, less that faithful actions (actually, quite scummy) and shes still around. Liberal media consumers are kind of like that they dont care what the people filling them with lies do or say, as long as theyre there when they turn on the TV, filling them with comfort food, and making them feel superior to everyone not as enlightened as they are.
Most importantly, these lying elites are protecting them from the Russians plotting against them as wealthy Russian politicians and oligarchs suffer under sanctions imposed on them by their puppet/agent, Donald Trump.
These people are morons. (The Russians made me write that.)
Now which party is planning on restricting drilling and eliminate fracking? That's the one Russia wants to win. Anything else is just to promote chaos and division in us.
I think the absolute best result for Russia in 2016 would have been Trump winning the popular vote but Hillary winning in the Electoral College. That would have split the voters but put Hillary, who was already in Russia's payroll from the Uranium One deal and Bill's speaking fees, in charge of limiting our fuel production.
Wow... That’s a plot line that is probably not only too convoluted and apparently prescient for a Bond villain... Probably wouldn’t cut the mustard even for Dr. Evil in the Austin Powers series of movies...
The classic 1966 spoof of cold war paranoia “The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming!” is available on Amazon Prime Video at this most appropriate of times.
