Putin on a show.

ok-then-look-away

The liberal outrage is hilarious!

I would say the meeting between Trump and Putin went as expected. Unlike the media, who set their expectations away from reality, Trump reiterated the same points again, disappointing liberals who were hoping to see Trump make a spectacle in front of cameras.

Trump wants a strong economic and political relationship with Russia.  It makes sense when you consider that Russia would be a great market for US goods, especially agricultural products.

Does that mean Putin is a good guy? No, but that isn’t the point here.  The media and the liberals are still stinging from the 2016 election and need someone other than their failed candidate, who also is struggling to accept the election results as failures of her own candidacy, to take the blame.

It is no secret that the Russians have been using cyber operations against the US for many years to steal secrets and to influence political power.  The fact that the Democrats and Hillary hired less than stellar IT people, unlike Wasserman-Schulz who hired actual terrorists to manage her systems, it’s no wonder they need to blame others for their poor decisions.

You know, bad decisions like not visiting Wisconsin during the entire 2016 election cycle and hoping the chronic unemployed voters of Detroit and Flint were going to want another four years of the same problems.

What has come out from the Mueller indictments and Congressional Committees is that there is no evidence that vote counts were manipulated. Despite millions of dollars funding investigations on several fronts there has yet to be a single instance presented where a Russian facebook group caused a zombie like reaction that switched on November 8 and forced a die-hard Clinton supporter to pick Trump.

Hardening lines have been happening since Obama became president in 2009, so it’s hard to believe the shrinking group independents would have been influenced by a false clever meme than say, you know, having to work two bad part-time jobs with no prospects for better opportunities.  Even at a 2016 NPR sponsored forum, President Obama said that manufacturing jobs were never coming back and that we had to get used to it.

President Trump did exactly as I expected and that was to not play into the fear mongering of the leftist media nor fall into their traps. The Russians undoubtedly tried to influence the election. Putin’s rejection of the charges was not unexpected.  Yet, without real numbers of the extent of the influence, liberals need a scapegoat other than Hillary.  In short, they can’t believe no one would buy their message.

Trump supporters won’t buy into media narratives that continually get worse by the minute.  Delivering on his campaign promises to help Americans and to implement conservative principles has far more weight to the average voter than liberal whining on cable news shows with little integrity.  Social media is blowing up, but when you have a job that doesn’t involve twitter, do you really care?

Besides, Trump is right.  Obama did nothing to stop the Russians.  The DNC server was never turned over for a full forensic analysis. The Clinton investigation was never serious because of bias in the system, and Mueller probe has yet to show how Trump’s campaign conspired with the Russians to defeat Hillary.

But, you know, Trump didn’t give Putin the sharp rebuke they wanted. Their butthurt is enormous. Instead, Trump threw alcohol on it. I laughed.

  1. “When you were asked, what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said ‘Russia.’ Not Al-Qaeda; you said Russia, and, the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back, because, the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”

    Who said that in 2012? Hint: It wasn’t Donald Trump.

  2. Is this really a democratic party vs. republican party issue? Russia has succeeded in undermining our confidence in the democratic process. I know you won’t accept that statement, but that’s only because your guy won. If your guy had lost, you would be singing a different tune. That’s the point. We no longer trust the press. We no longer trust the cops. We no longer trust each other. The cold war is over, and Russia won.

    • The only influence the Russian’s have are on liberals who need to point fingers at a scapegoat for their own failures to get Hillary elected.

      There is no evidence the elections process was undermined. Yes, I’m sure the Russians tried to meddle, but no government organization has produced a single document showing the number of votes affected, including the number of voters who were influenced by memes created for social media by a handful of Russian agents.

      The votes were certified per law. And despite liberal outrage when Trump didn’t immediately say he would accept the legitimacy of the results during one of the debates, liberals think Russia is the perfect means to overturn the will of the people. How iconic.

      • Ted Kennedy sends a letter asking for Andropov’s help with the 1984 Presidential election.

        Hillary taking money for speeches and having a hand in selling a big chunk of our weapons grade ore to Russia.

        This is why I can’t take leftists protests about Russia and Putin seriously.

      • Mexico meddled more than Russia — they encouraged their citizens to illegally vote for Hillary.

        No outrage over that from the Democrats, for some reason.

    • I can’t speak for SC, but I can safely say that the Russians spearphishing Podesta and downloading some voter rolls didn’t make my estimation of US elections any worse, and I didn’t vote for Trump either.

      The press? Most of my peers haven’t trusted the press for most or all of their adult lives.

      President Trump has a good point, we know that someone tried to hack the RNC severs but failed. Their is no evidence that the dnc was hacked–CrowdStrike’s word is worth less than a bill schmalfeldt shit. My personal opinion is that the dnc was never hacked.

      • “Someone” — tracked back the DHS, as I recall — tried to hack into the election systems of multiple states. “Security testing” — except White Hat hacking is usually done with prior permission.

      • Oh, and I think the DNC had an insider leak. Whether that insider was later killed in an oddly convenient mugging or not, I don’t know.

        But Donna Brazille sure was frightened of something.

    • You know who “undermined our confidence in the democratic process”? The folks who demanded Trump declare, before the first vote was cast, that he would abide by the results, THEN SPENT THE FOLLOWING TWO YEARS DEMANDING THE ELECTION RESULTS BE UNDONE!

      No votes were changed. What was cast was counted. Hillary lost, according to the laws governing the election when it was held.

      Want to find people to blame? Look at the ones who refused to accept the election results in 2000. Look at the ones who have spent decades whining about the electoral college. Look at the ones who have spent decades demonizing police with half-truths and outright lies, while ignoring ever-increasing corruption in the political class.

      Who destroyed our trust in the press? The damned press did. They lied, they cheated, they buried stories that weren’t flattering to Democrats and pushed even the thinnest rumors against Republicans. They call one side “Nazis” while ignoring the national socialist and racialist policies of the other side.

    • Responding to the possible concern troll, Bad Wolf:

      If your guy had lost, you would be singing a different tune.

      1. Everyone I know understands getting the mose votes in the Electoral College is the only way to win a Presidential election, unless there’s a tie.
      2. Trump wasn’t my guy, nor was Clinton. And I’ not singing a different tune.
      3. How can Russia undermine our confidence in the democratic process if they didn’t change or influence any votes?
      4. Clinton spent $1 billion on ads. Trump spent about half that. Russia spent $1.25 million per month on ads according to Robert Mueller, which is a drop in the bucket compared to the other two.

      We no longer trust the cops.

      Correction: We no longer trust the politicized cops on the 7th floor of the FBI.

      We no longer trust each other.

      Show me proof of this. All I see is the Amercian public no longer trusts the media. I trust my neighbors and my friends. I often even trust complete strangers. I see no proof that we no longer trust each other.

      The cold war is over, and Russia won.

      Berlin wall taken down. Eastern Europe freed from Soviet domination and mostly democratic. U.S.S.R. no longer a political entity. U.S.S.R. states now their own countries. If that’s losing, what’s winning like? Are you still living back in the 1980’s?

      ♩ I’m back in the U.S.S.R
      You don’t know how lucky you are boy
      Back in the U.S.
      Back in the U.S.
      Back in the U.S.S.R.

    • Russia has been doing crap like this since WWII. Here’s the fun part: So have we. Thing is, they haven’t been effective. So, the OMG PEARL HARBOR!!! hysterics, while amusing, are utterly unserious.

      What isn’t amusing is an adminstration weaponizing OUR law enforcement and counterintelligence operations on behalf of one candidate and against another. That’s a gigantic problem. Yes, Putin wants to sow chaos, but he didn’t create this mess. We did that all by ourselves.

  3. Russia won? Check some demographics and data. Current population? Maybe 148M. of those 22M are >65 in a country where male life expectancy is 67. Of this 22M, 12+M are female. About 100M are >15 and 64, or prime working age. Of those maybe 70M are actually employed in useful occupations.
    GDP is about 1.6T. Its economy is ‘growing’ at less than 1%/yr.
    It’s a Third World country with nuclear weapons.
