Deep State Attack Continues
2 Mar 2017 by Roman Dmowski
Now they’ve turned on Sessions, whom they tried to play “gotcha” with regarding a meeting he had, as Senator, with the Russian ambassador. It appears he misspoke, and he has said so today. He’s smart to recuse himself, which I think people generally should do to avoid the appearance of impropriety in positions of power.
The problem with this entire line of attack by ex-Obama people and Deep State elements at the CIA is that the underlying substance is absolute nonsense that no one believes. It’s an attempt to delegitimize Trump and his subordinates, and it’s laughably stupid. Hillary lost the election all by herself. The ties of Wikileaks and Russia and the election itself are tenuous at best. Wikileaks *did* expose duplicity in the DNC, which led to at least one resignation, but the main issues of the election were open for all to see. In fact, the revelations from Wikileaks are hard to summarize and barely mattered to voters–I don’t quite get their significance myself, and I’m a close follower of these things. And Russia, like everyone else, almost certainly thought Hillary would win and Trump would lose.
Trump openly said he wants friendlier relations with Russia, and the American voters heard that to the extent they cared–I agree with him for example–and voted accordingly. No one is particularly scared of Russia. Indeed, the Cold War has been over for 25 years. Democrats seem more scared of a Christian and nationalist Russia than they ever were of the far-more-hostile Soviet Empire.
Democrats seem to have forgotten their internationalist pretensions. Remember Kerry saying how they loved him in France. Other countries, not least Mexico, weighed in on the election too. Does anyone doubt Hillary’s people occasionally talked to them? Or Israelis? Britons? French? Or other foreign officials concerned with the election? Let’s not forget, Hillary’s foundation took in tons of money from the UAE, Tunisians, and Saudis and God-knows-who-else in an obvious form of bribery. But we’re supposed to be concerned a US Senator met with an Ambassador, which incidentally is something both ambassadors and senators are supposed to do?!?
Sessions is a very honorable man, as best I can tell. He almost certainly misspoke, as the context of the question was contacts between Russia and the Trump Campaign. That said, the underlying substance doesn’t matter to anyone. It’s a sign of how insular and stupid these globalist haters are in that they think Americans are staying up at night worried about this, as if their cocktail party concerns for the “balance of power with Russia” matter to all but 5% of the electorate at most. The only offensive thing about this line of attack is who it is coming from, likely ex-Obama people inside and outside of the government, who forgot that they and their team lost bigly in the election.
