The leftwing media, unofficial arm of the Democrat Party, is proving once again why they’ve earned the disdain of Donald Trump and much of the American population. Based upon interviews with anonymous sources in the CIA regarding unofficial, secret reports, the following headlines are breathlessly appearing on the front pages of “mainstream” news sites:
From CBSNews.com: Clinton campaign supports briefing Electoral College on Russian interference
From ABCNews.go.com: Trump Engages CIA in War of Words Over Russian Election Hacking
From Cnn.com: Hacking Standoff. U.S. Intel says Russia interfered with vote; not so, Trump says
From the Huffington Post: CLINTON CAMP POUNCES: BRIEF ELECTORS ON RUSSIA HACKS!
What is this new news of Russian hacking I wondered? Well it seems it all stems from an article December 9th in The Washington Post which reported the earth-shattering revelations under the headline: Bombshell Secret CIA Report Says Russia Aimed To Steal White House For Trump
What does this “bombshell” report say, you wonder? Here it is:
“A shocking secret CIA assessment has concluded that Russia interfered with the U.S. presidential election expressly to help Donald Trump win, according to an exclusive report Friday by The Washington Post. Until now, intelligence sources have indicated that Russian hacking throughout the campaign that repeatedly exposed information overwhelmingly embarrassing for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was an effort to undermine Americans’ faith in their government.”
So the “bombshell” news is not that the CIA has confirmed Russian hacking of the voting system or any other new allegation. It’s the same old allegation about hacking into DNC and HRC emails. But while we previously thought Russia merely wanted to undermine confidence in our government, now we think Russia wanted Trump to win. Oh boy. Apparently someone has finally crossed a red line that Obama is willing to defend, and our pacifist-make-love-not-war Democrats are ready to wage war with the Russians over it.
Moral to the story: It’s all good until it happens to a Democrat.
Suddenly the Left is awash in patriotic feelings. “How dare an outsider mess with our elections!” they cry. Apparently foreigners can only mess with our elections if they sneak across our border first or funnel the money through the Clinton Foundation. Hey – anyone remember Chinagate?
The Washington Post piece goes on to say:
“Though U.S. intelligence agencies were skeptical that hackers would be able to manipulate the election results in a systematic way, the White House feared that Russia would attempt to do so, sowing doubt about the fundamental mechanisms of democracy and potentially forcing a more dangerous confrontation between Washington and Moscow.”
The Obama Administration was worried that people would doubt the integrity of the election. Isn’t that special? Of course that was when they expected Hillary to win, so they didn’t make too big a deal about their purported concerns before. But that was then and now that Hillary has lost, it’s okay to sow those doubts, you see? It’s for our own good, I’m sure.
Look folks, the bottom line on this anonymous interview about a secret report is that we still don’t know for a fact who hacked into Hillary’s emails, but more importantly, the worst we can say so far is that if the email leaks brought Hillary down, she was ultimately done in by her own words as well as those of her colleagues. Truth killed the Clinton campaign. Furthermore, the people who are now righteously enraged over the leaking of authentic DNC emails are the very same people who routinely attempt to damage conservatives with false or misleading reporting, so all I can say is: cry me a river.
And another thing (or two)!
Wasn’t it our Genius-in-Chief who told Mitt Romney that the 80’s wanted their foreign policy back when Romney suggested that Russia was our greatest geo-political threat? Where – in all this outrage – is the apology to Governor Romney? Wasn’t it Obama who whispered to Russian’s president, “Tell Vlad I’ll have more flexibility after the election.” Come to think of it, why didn’t Obama just call his old pal Vlad and say, “Dude! Cut it out!” And lastly, wasn’t it our brilliant Secretary of State Clinton who oversaw the “reset” with Russia? Oops. Looks like the reset didn’t work, Hillary.
Where are the stories about what this says about our leadership if it happens to be true?
Whether the Russians are guilty or not, Democrats’ concern for the integrity of our elections is as phony as Obama’s “shovel-ready” jobs. These are the very same Democrats who have proven time and again that the integrity of our election systems means nothing to them and winning means everything.
But hey, it’ll make a good movie for Oliver Stone.
