The Collusion Con

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , on April 20, 2019 by andelino

It’s now confirmed, 28 months after the fact: Donald Trump’s winning the 2016 election by secretly conspiring with Russian operatives was an elaborate “hoax.” It was invented by the Department of Justice and the FBI at the end of the Obama presidency for the sole purpose of “destroying a political enemy.”

Department of Justice Special Counsel Robert Mueller submitted his long-awaited report to the attorney general’s office, ending a torturous 22 months of investigating Donald Trump and nearly everyone associated with his 2016 presidential campaign. For two years, Democrats, Never-Trumpers and their all-too-overeager allies in the mainstream media reminded us every day that the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government to rig the election.

The Mueller probe, they assured us, would prove every one of these slanderous accusations: “from high crimes and misdemeanors to outright treason. Donald Trump, his children and their advisers were all going to prison, probably for life, for conspiring with Russian President Vladimir Putin.”

American taxpayers funded every penny of this “sham” investigation, estimated at $25 to $40 million. According to Attorney General William Barr’s summary of the report, Mueller employed 19 prosecutors and was assisted by 40 FBI agents. The special counsel issued more than 2,800 subpoenas, executed 500 search warrants, interviewed 500 witnesses, collected 230 requests for communication records, and submitted 13 requests for evidence to foreign governments.

After all that, according to the report, “the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.” In other words, not one, single American was indicted or convicted for conspiring with the Russian government to influence the 2016 election.

The media reaction to this “revelation” has been astounding. They are not happy or even relieved to know that the Trump team did not “conspire” with Russia to compromise the American election process. They are instead furious that Mueller didn’t take “down” Donald Trump!

They haven’t even read the full report. But they know President Trump is guilty. And they are all competing to be the ones with the most anti-Trump reaction to the news that he and his team have been cleared.

They are displaying to the world that they are impervious to facts. The evidence does not matter if it differs from their opinions.

“How can they let Trump off the hook?” one commentator mournfully asked on Friday night. Another said, “I don’t need the Mueller report to know he’s a traitor—I have a TV.” Yet another said he was still convinced that Mr. Trump is “Benedict Arnold, the infamous Revolutionary War defector.” One Democratic presidential candidate says he knows “beyond a shadow of doubt” that Trump colluded with Russia. Another Democrat in the House of Representatives is now calling for Robert Mueller to be “subpoenaed!”

These people should be hanging their heads in “shame.” Instead, they simply turn their eyes and ears away from truth and carry on with this “disgraceful” con job. There are plenty of other investigations still pending, one commentator gleefully noted over the weekend.

They won’t stop until they get rid of Donald Trump because, well, he’s Donald Trump. They hate the fact that he defeated them. They hate him. But most importantly, they hate those who support him.

This was Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler’s response to the Mueller disappointment: “The special prosecutor is limited in scope; his job was limited in scope and limited to crimes. What Congress has to do is look at a broader picture.” Never mind crimes! The Democrats in Congress have so much more they can “investigate” in order to, at the very least, bog down and oppose President Trump and his policies.

So they will do everything in their power to continue the “con”. But the truth is there for those who have eyes to see.

Haven’t you wondered why Donald Trump has been so “resilient”, to say the least? People considered him a “novelty.” He ran for president of the United States. People said his candidacy was a “joke.” He won the nomination. People poured on the “hate.” He won the election. Democrats, journalists, commentators, celebrities, former friends and associates, more than a few Republicans, and even powerful people inside his own government have all tried to, at least, slow him down and, at most, “impeach” him or perhaps goad someone into “killing” him.

But President Donald J. Trump rolls on. Not only does he retain the presidency, but he gets things done: “reforming taxes, confirming a record number of circuit judges, withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate accords, moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, recognizing the Golan Heights, increasing border security, reducing regulations, renegotiating trade deals, making businesses optimistic, and helping the U.S. economy surge.”

Not only does he retain the presidency and get things done, but the more his enemies work to “destroy” him, the worse things go for them. About half the country “oppose” him, and I’d say about 90 percent of the elites “hate” him. President Barack Obama’s administration doubled down on its opposition to him by stacking the powerful Department of Justice with agents who would try to “undermine and end” the Trump presidency. Yet, the “scheming, collusion and deceit” that the former president and other “radical liberals” aimed at destroying President Trump backfired, and the world discovered much of that “corruption.”

They devoted a huge amount of “executive, legislative, media and cultural” power to it. Now, rather than meaningfully damaging the president, they have damaged themselves. Yet even with the “humiliation” so fresh, they have little choice but to “double” down even further in their “opposition.”

Backing off now, in the face of the facts, would mean admitting they were “wrong” and, in most cases, admitting that they tried to “influence” people in a “biased if not deceitful” way. They’re probably working right now on their latest, “most creative, most vicious insults” to voice on television in the competition to show that they are the “celebrity, politician and journalist” who possesses the most “rage” toward President Trump.

But by now they probably have a “sinking” feeling that their best isn’t “good” enough. Something is “powering” this president that they haven’t been able to stop.
