How Obama Saved Trump

Ok, let’s be honest.  Anyone who says Trump committed treason in Helsinki is a moron who doesn’t know how our government works.  Yes, John Brennan – former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, you are a moron who doesn’t know how the constitution works.  It’s so bad, left leaning Politifact had to fact check your claim. Politifact had to fact check a claim by the former CIA director of whether the President of the United States had committed treason.  And you lost.

Maybe that’s why Trump is revoking Brennan’s security clearance.

Brennan wasn’t alone.  Representative Adam Smith, ranking Democrat on the Armed Services Committee, also called Trump’s statements treason.  The soon to be irrelevant New York Daily News led with the cover title “Open Treason”.  A recent poll shows that nearly half the country (guess which half) think Trump committed treason.

But here’s the best part: Trump didn’t commit treason because Obama never treated Russia’s cyber attacks as an act of war.

One of the key essentials to treason, as pointed out by Politifact, is that we be at war with the “enemy” that the traitor provided aid and comfort to.  We aren’t at war with Russia, Trump can’t be a traitor for saying nice things about them.

So then you might ask, if Russia issued a cyber attack against us and tried to influence our elections in 2016, why aren’t we at war with them?  Because when Russia used cyber attacks to steal DNC emails and try to influence our election, President Obama issued a stand down order to cyber security chief and told him to back burner any action against Russia. 

In other words, if Trump committed treason by fumbling with his words and saying he couldn’t understand why Russia would meddle (never mind what he thought he meant to say), then Obama committed treason in 2016 by secretly issuing the stand down against Russia.  Otherwise, Russia is not our enemy and Trump can say whatever he wants.

Maybe Democrats should knock off the bull crap and follow through with what they claim to believe.  Maybe Democrats should introduce a declaration of war on Russia in Congress.  If Russia actually was our enemy, maybe they could start tossing around legitimate treason claims that stick.  But given the cozy history between major Democrats and Russia in the past, they’d probably end up regretting it.

Need to Know 7/18/18

Democrats are claiming that Trump told Russia to hack the DNC.  What they are actually referring to was a campaign speech Trump gave after Hillary Clinton deleted 30,000 emails under subpoena from her illegal private server.  The FBI couldn’t find those incriminating emails, so Trump joked that he hoped the Russians could find them.  And that is the closest thing we have to Russian Collusion.

David Love, writing for CNN, is suggesting that #walkaway is actually a ploy by the Russians to make people think that there is an exodus from the Democrat party by those disillusioned with the extreme turn the party has taken toward Socialism.  So when your friends use #walkaway, just know that means they are actually a Russian bot.

Trump is being accused of going soft on the Russians by not starting a war with Putin over the hackers.  But actually, it was the Obama administration who decided to back burner efforts to stop Russian hackers.  After US intel agencies had developed a plan to fight back against Russian hacker attacks, Susan Rice issued a stand down order.

Ocasio-Cortez has screwed up on Israel again.  Despite holding a degree in international relations, the young Socialist candidate for New York’s 14th district has now bumbled through three different interviews on questions about Israel.  But take heart, she is going to be “speaking to activists” so they can finally tell her what to think about Israel.  I feel better already.
