Strangely enough, NPR yesterday was offering defense (of a sort) likening it to the Clinton campaign receiving information from Ukraine on Trump campaign members dealing with Pro-Russian Ukrainian folk to be used to harm during the elections.
NPR tweeted the Declaration of Independence and people insisted they were spreading propaganda and calling for a revolution.

Best July 4th ever.

I'm waiting for the day Trump literally eats a live baby on a plate with a knife and fork as if it were a steak to see how much people will tie themselves into knots explaining why it's perfectly acceptable. I wish-- I WISH I could say I was exaggerating. Not that he would actually do that, but that people would actually find it acceptable because there is literally nothing at all he can do that is wrong in their eyes.

What kind of sick person would even do that? Eat a baby with a knife and fork? They're clearly hand foods.

It's survivorship bias.

Both major candidates from this last election cycle had a long list of reasons they were awful. Anyone that was still seriously supporting either of them come election day probably would have voted for a decapitated walrus. All the 'normal' people jumped ship a long long time ago.

People who seriously bought into the Make America Great Again thing are never going to admit to themselves that they were (a) hoodwinked (b) in part by Russia. It is easier to chant "Fake News", deny any evidence and believe in conspiracy theories about Clinton shuttling in Russian counterspies to trap Trump than to accept that their candidate lied to them, is inept at governing and was elected with the express aid of a hostile foreign government.

I mean the conspiracy had Clinton, Obama, the DNC, kids, and globalists all intertwined in it. The only thing that could have possibly made it better is if someone had tied in a fake global warming scare. There was no stopping it once it got going. Smiley: rolleyes

Congratulations to Mr. Trump on continuing to fail to get your party on board with your health care reforms. Looks like things are dead in the water again, at least until the next attempt. Smiley: rolleyes

There's some next tier level of irony in Uncle Cranky McCain's need for brain surgery being what held up health care reform.

Even more-so since Kennedy in the hospital was wrapped in with the concerns in getting Obamacare through in the first place.

In retrospect we could probably use a few more leaders that aren't on their death bed. Smiley: rolleyes

I'd add in a token strawman for popular consumption but r/the_donald, which tends to be my source for nutjob news, has been quiet on the subject today. Mostly just ramblings about Clinton stealing money and killing people, and other good wholesome conspiracies like that. Something, something, Seth Rich, organ harvesting, rabble, rabble.

Clinton paid Planned Parenthood to abort Seth Rich and sell his organs to illegal immigrants so they would be indebted to liberals and steal guns from hardworking Americans and ship them to drug cartels.

Edit: The guns, not the Americans. But there's no conspiracy that can't be spiced up with a little white slavery.

We don't know how many Caucasian Americans were enslaved during Jade Helm. They've mostly been cleared out of the Walmart underground bunkers by now, so we'll probably never know for sure.

This seems to be the NPR interview in question (it's the only transcript mentioning Ukraine & Clinton from the past couple weeks). It doesn't seem as though Shapiro was mentioning Ukraine as a defense personally but said that "White House allies" were bringing it up. Neither compared any legal ramification from it to Trump's situation.

Again, there's significant differences between the stories but it's ultimately irrelevant anyway because what Clinton (the DNC, actually) did or didn't do has no impact on any breaches committed by the Trump campaign.


Except the relevant fact that this kind of thing isn't unusual in national level campaigns by showing that the Clinton campaign also benefited from information obtained from foreign sources and used it against Trump during the election. I guess my issue with this whole thing is how the word "collusion" has apparently changed meaning over time. At the start of this, collusion meant that the Trump campaign was directly involved in the hacking and leaking of the DNC emails and thus associated with a criminal act, even if just after the fact, along with some sort of assumed quid pro quo agreement in return for that assistance. Now, apparently, "collusion" means having a conversation with anyone remotely associated with, or just claiming association with, a foreign government, but apparently only if that government is Russia, and only if it's the Trump campaign, and regardless of any sort of promises made in return.

If someone calls or emails a member of a campaign claim to have dirt on the opposition, that member takes the meeting. Period. Doesn't matter who the other person is. If the dirt is real, you use it. Again, doesn't matter who the person is who has it, or how they got it. It's certainly not illegal or a violation of any sort of campaign laws to do this. If it was, then a whole lot of people are breaking the law every single election year. This is a case where it appears as though the mere fact of reporting something makes people think the thing being reported is relevant or important. It's not.


At the end of the day, we live in a country that has free speech. That includes political speech. Anyone is free to express their opinion on something, especially in the political arena. If a foreign government wants to spend money promoting a politician, party, or agenda in the US, they have the right to do so. The idea that this is remotely new is bizarre, given that we've had foreign governments and citizens doing this for decades at least. Heck. It's not even strange to have Russian involvement. Have any of you actually read the declassified intelligence report everyone talks about when defending the "Russian meddling" claim, but rarely seem to actually know what's in it? Most of the report isn't about the hacked and leaked DNC emails. It's about how Russia uses propaganda methods to influence US politics, specifically via RT (Russia Times), or, more recently RT USA (and RT UK). What's funny is that RT USA was established, directed specifically at a US audience, back in 2008. What's even more funny is if you read the report, it lists the sorts of positions on various issues that RT advocates. It reads like a checklist of Democratic Party platform items.

If this is "meddling", and it's "bad", and we should be condemning the recipients of that meddling, then why has this been ignored for the last 8 years? Russia has consistently been meddling in ways that benefit the Democrats. Heck. Tie that in with Obama's open mike gaff, where he appeared to be promising Putin something better "in the next term", and you have actual evidence of a direct quid pro quo agreement *and* evidence of Russian help, at least in terms of messaging.

Not enough? Again, the fake dossier on Trump involves not one but *two* foreign governments. Yet, no one batted an eye that the source of the information was foreign. And certainly no one demanded that the Clinton campaign somehow answer for the fact that foreign operatives/governments were working to help her win the election. Not only do I not recall any such demands, I seem to recall Democrat after Democrat taking up this faked info and pushing it as hard as they could. Is anyone on this forum actually going to pretend that had Clinton won the election, there would have been investigations into foreign meddling and "collusion" between Clinton and these foreign parties?

The reality is that a political campaign will accept any help and any information it can to win. No one's going to turn down opposition information because it comes from a foreign source. No one. That's not "collusion". At least not any form of collusion that would be questionable, much less illegal. Again, the only form of collusion that is problematic is if a candidate makes promises to a foreign party in exchange for that help. Which is something we have evidence of Obama doing, but not Trump.

And that's before getting into the incredibly shady stuff surrounding foreign donations to the Clinton foundation. There's strong evidence that Clinton's political influence was up for sale, to anyone, including foreign parties. And once again, we have zero evidence of any such sort of activities on the part of Trump.

Yet Trump is being investigated? And you wonder why it's being viewed as a witch hunt? Can anyone here actually say what crime or violation of campaign rules they think Trump violated? Anyone? I'll point out again, you really need to have at least an idea of what law was broken or may have been broken *before* starting an investigation. Otherwise, it's just an investigation to have an investigation, knowing that the mere existence of such a thing has political weight. IMO, that's all this is.

Or not. But normalizing unethical behavior for the sake of political gain seems to be what the GOP is all about these days.
