This might actually be a hate crime. Nancy Pelosi was trying to hit Trump over failure to secure our elections from Russian interference, but ended up smacking Obama right in the nose. I’m speaking metaphorically, but even criticism of Obama is considered racist and hateful by the left, so clearly Pelosi is guilty of a bias crime, right? Maybe not. Liberals not only play by a different set of rules than they demand of others, but they are also afforded plenty of leeway due to their lack of self-awareness, hypocrisy, and ignorance.
On Friday a federal grand jury handed down indictments to 12 Russians for hacking DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign e-mails. Of course the left is going to go bonkers about this, but they seem to be ignoring some facts Attorney General Rod Rosenstein brought up in connection with the indictments:
“There is no allegation in this indictment that any American citizen committed a crime,” said Rosenstein, adding, “There is no allegation that the conspiracy changed the vote count or affected any election result.”
Now here’s the official statement from Nancy “I don’t understand anything” Pelosi:
The Russians waged a massive, concerted operation to interfere in our elections, and they will do so again in the fall. Strong, immediate action is needed to secure our state election systems, yet Republicans are wasting the country’s time with sham hearings while refusing to provide a single additional penny to protect our elections.
If these indictments are to be believed, the Russians stole some Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton campaign e-mails. The other indictments against Russians said that they posted non-party-affiliated ads on social media. That’s hardly a “massive” effort to interfere with the 2016 election. In fact it’s about the same effort Hillary put into winning Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. That is to say, not a lot. Also, if Pelosi would refer to AG Rosenstein’s statement, this massive effort had no effect on the election.
The stakes for the upcoming Trump-Putin meeting could not be higher. President Trump must demand and secure a real, concrete and comprehensive agreement that the Russians will cease their ongoing attacks on our democracy. Failure to stand up to Putin would constitute a profound betrayal of the Constitution and our democracy.
Hmm, Obama spent 8 years not standing up to Russia and Putin. Is Pelosi suggesting that Obama betrayed our Constitution and our democracy? For once I actually agree with that crazy old lady.
And while we are on the subject, Obama knew that Russia was trying to meddle in the 2016 presidential election and did exactly nothing to stop it. Like I said, Pelosi’s swing missed Trump entirely and landed right in the middle of Obama’s face.
Why is it suddenly so vital to stop Russia from doing goofy things that don’t make a bit of a difference now, but 2 years ago when Obama was in control, it lacked importance? Could it have anything to do with the democrats’ irrational hatred of President Trump?
I think what Pelosi is actually doing here is giving herself an excuse for when democrats fall flat in the November midterms. When the “blue wave” turns out to be less than a ripple, she can say that Russia interfered in the election again and Trump did nothing to stop it. It’s really the only way she gets to keep her leadership position after tanking yet another election.
