While You Weren’t Looking, the Democrat–Media Election-Hacking Narrative Just Collapsed

That supposed FBI investigation of collusion with the Russians? Never mind . . . They’re in retreat now. You may have missed it amid President Trump’s startling Saturday tweet storm, the recriminations over president-on-candidate spying, and the Jeff Sessions recusal — a whirlwind weekend. But while you weren’t looking, an elaborate narrative died. For months, the media-Democrat complex has peddled a storyline that the Putin regime in Russia hacked the U.S. presidential election. There is, of course, no evidence that the election was hacked in the sense that the actual voting process was compromised.

The Democrat Thug Party is a nasty lot. Despite our objections to Obama, we never engaged in the deceit and criminality the punks are waging against our guy.

They got trapped by their own lies.

Flynn called the Russian ambassador from the Trump tower and the press has a transcript of the call.

How on earth can they claim that there was no wiretap?

It’s interesting what nobody bothered to ask about FISA warrants when the Flynn story came up.

The media is posting “Trump angry at Bannon”, meanwhile, Bannon slits the throat of their entire narrative. I’d be willing to bet dollars to donuts, Steve is the brains behind this bait and switch.

(haven’t read the article yet but will now) A lot of folks have been very critical of Trump having tweeted out his accusation of wiretapping/bugging by the 0bama admin (whether by CIA, FBI, or any of several other agys)

I think it was an extremely gutsy move, a chess brilliancy. Because it brought HIS accusation whether true, false, spurious, or random, to exactly the same level as the accusations against him. And it inherently demands equal investigation; because if true, it is astonishingly serious. It was a very “see you and raise you” move.

The question remains, if the NYTimes is reporting that “transcripts of Flynns’ convos with the Russian Ambassador” revealed….whatever they revealed…HOW IN BLAZES DID THEY GET transcripts…without wiretapping? It’s nobody but the Times itself that claimed there were “transcripts of wiretaps” quote unquote. Now they aren’t so sure…?

Excellent article. Thank you for posting.

The enemy is trying to spin it as Trump having a temper tantrum on Saturday and thus, being unfit for office.

You don’t build a multi billion dollar business enterprise by being emotionally unstable. Look to those who’ve never had an actual Grown Up job to do the childish acting out.

I think Andy McCarthy nails it, as he so often does.

There is a lot of overlap with what Mark Levin has said on several Fox NeWS interviews…the latest one I heard was on the Hannity show tonight.

Maybe he and McCarthy have been sharing notes.

and Judge Napoliano (sp?) had some interesting thins to say on the Lou Dobbs show tonight.

As I heard it,…the President can order surveillance for Intel purposes without getting a warrant from the FISA Court….if he feels ..had some urgency

The battle is on Twitter.

I liken it to the Napoleonic Wars: massed armies firing in concert at each other, with very inaccurate musket fire.

There are a few sharpshooters/lucky shots scattered throughout the opposing armies, and every once in a while a devastatingly accurate shot lays low one of the opposing commanders.

The key is in continuous waves of musket fire by your side.

The battle goes well on Twitter.

Our troops are pouring massed fire into them.

That’s good to hear. I never use Twitter but maybe I need to get involved over there.

I take Andy McCarthy with a block of salt. He has a mindset that TPTB are selfless, honorable public servants. And don’t you dare criticize his lil’ buddy Jim Comey.

He produced another article today about the so-called wall between intelligence and criminal investigation. He used to think it was bogus; seeing as how this Trump “Is it an investigation? Are there wiretaps? Or not?” Narrative has played out, he maybe thinks the wall is a good idea.

Of course, it took a cr@pload of leaks, etc to get him to this point. I’m not impressed.

I couldn’t stand it any more in October last after lurking for several months.

It’s very strange in comparison to FR. The accuracy of FR is replaced by waves of inaccurate “musket fire” – but it makes a difference.

I switch back and forth between FR and Twitter because you can sometimes pick up breaking news even quicker on Twitter.

“Flynn called the Russian ambassador from the Trump tower and the press has a transcript of the call.”

Where did you hear that call was from Trump Tower?

It’s game, set, match if that’s the case.
