Democrats’ bogus accusations against Trump

If the Trump-hating New York Times has an article that’s extremely dismissive of allegations that Trump is somehow in cahoots with Russia, then you know that it’s totally bogus, just a desperate attempt by Democrats to deflect attention from Wikileaks and now HRC’s private email server.

And regarding Paul Manafort, I definitely think he’s part of the corrupt influence-peddling culture of the government elite, but the Clintons have him beat by a wide margin. They made $250 million dollars allegedly giving speeches, but we all know that the people paying for speeches were really buying influence.

But Paul Manafort has very little to do with Trump. Trump never knew the guy until he hired him at a time when he needed an insider-type to make sure he didn’t screw up the possible floor-right at the convention (which never happened). And now Manafort no longer works for Trump. This is another example of how diabolical Democrats are trying to deflect attention away from Huma Abedin who, unlike Manafort, is super-close her boss HRC and has been working for her since 1996.

  1. “Investigators, the officials said, have become increasingly confident, based on the evidence they have uncovered, that Russia’s direct goal is not to support the election of Mr. Trump, as many Democrats have asserted, but rather to disrupt the integrity of the political system and undermine America’s standing in the world more broadly.”

    ROFL. As if those horrid Russkies need to do anything to have that happen.

  2. We know that Luntz, Mair and Wilson had 2 pieces of anti-Trump oppo that are to drop this week. One was supposed to hit him with evangelical’s and I think it was what came out today about Trump supposedly co-authoring some 50 Shades of Gray type novel about Trump Tower, but that has all been buried under the Hillary email stuff.

    The other thing is maybe this Russian thing. It probably is because we know that this comes from Egg McMuffin’s circle. I guess we won’t know for sure until this weekend.

  3. I thought it was plausible that Russia helped Wikileaks. Now I doubt it. The Podesta emails could easily have been hacked by that 400 pound dude on his sofa, and the DNC emails could have come from an internal leak. (No one thinks that Bradley/Chelsea Manning was a Russian spy.)

    If Putin had leaked hoards of emails to Wikileaks, there would have been some truly devastating ones written by Hillary herself. While the Podesta stuff has been damaging for Hillary, it’s still usually a degree or two separates from Hillary herself.

    At this point, I think that Trump is on his way to win unless more tapes akin to the Billy Bush tape are leaked. There’s nothing we can do but wait for the next few days.

  5. Hillary Clinton has already sold 20% of the American uranium stockpile to Russia in exchange for a hundred million dollar donation to the Clinton Foundation. The US government has already negotiated arms treaties that pretty much allow Russia to build whatever it wants.

    • It’s not a Jeffrey Epstein suit against Trump. It’s a status conference to decide whether a suit should go forward. A bunch of chicks from Epstein’s past are accusing Trump of raping them during an orgy.

      I read the history of the suit and the chief accuser is something of a Jackie Coakley, but this is Epstein we’re talking about, and he and Trump were friends at least as late as 2002.

  12. The timing of the article is no accident. Josh Earnest just called Comey “a man of integrity.” Of course, nothing Earnest says can be believed. “I come to bury Caesar….” but still.

    I think that the auto-synced emails implicate him and he’s scared. Actually scared. He said he didn’t know anything about the basement server and he communicated w/her repeatedly under a stupid pseudonym. I wonder what THAT was. Snoop Dogg? I’m sure it was something rap oriented.

    They are figuring out which emails can be released to the public and which can’t. The public is being carefully prepared for the mother of all bombshells. It’ll happen sometime between Election Day and Inauguration, so be patient.

      I didn’t vote for Romney in 2012 in a different state but I voted for Trump already.

      I have to believe Trump wins far more Democrats/Independents and frustrated non-voters so simple party registration is probably missing many Trump votes.

Trump is for sure going to win FL, and he is probably going to win it by a huge margin. NC is the state that there currently is some doubt about, but those doubts are based on polling, not on early voting where Trump is killing it.

        Hispanic turnout is actually down from 2012 in FL, the opposite of what you predicted would happen. It doesn’t appear to be up by much in NV either. The only state where the Latino vote is poised to hurt Trump more than it would any other Republican is CO.

    • Most state polls are rigged, but you do make a good point. The Dems have a formidable “Blue Wall” in the electoral college. Trump has to flip either NV/NH or PA to win. Early voting in NV looks so terrible that it is hard to see Trump winning there, despite the polls showing it close and the PA polls mostly look like shit for Trump, but then again they are mostly rigged.

President Trump would lift America’s punitive sanctions against Putin and other Russian leaders who refuse to celebrate sodomy (this is called a human rights crime by the Bathhouse Regime) — and that’s the sole reason Democrats including illary and 0bama hate Putin: he refuses to celebrate their alternative deathstyle. I know I’ve been a bit incoherent, but you get the point and I’m busy right now.
