How come it's not Russia 24/7 anymore on NPR, CNN, and in the NY Times?

Have they run out of lame tenuous connections that no one is buying and which break no laws? Seemed like they could make up a new story every week for the last 8 months.

Or have they realized that investigating further looks more likely to incriminate Hillary than Trump?

Tee Hee! It's not working, indeed, people are getting Russian-Collusion exhaustion since it was the past 5-6 months 24-7 where the MSM was pimping it to the near exclusion of everything else.

Remember, Trump could start a nuclear holocaust and WW3 - but he's not tough enough on Russia! hahahahahahahah

Y'all must be praying for an Islamic attack on the homeland at this point, to defer attention from the administrations failures.

Russia is Fake News, so move on, and focus on reality

Heritage Foundation Care is here to stay
There was never going to be a wall

So what can you hang your hat on?

Trump blowing the Saudis?

What is it, Trumpcucks?

Now it's the Shadow of Doubt they wield over Trump to find Criminality in ever Shit he takes. It's disgusting and people are getting repulsed.

Trump just keeps setting hooks and running lines. All of these rouge investigations Seven Degrees to Putin will end up ensnaring them all.
Trump has had more than the Legal Authority to push back on all of this Resist bullshit since day one. But he's allowed them to wrap themselves up in investigative inquest and bringing up Questions in Answers they didn't want to get. Now the investigation is pointing back at the DNC colluding by sending the Russian lawyer, the Fake Russian Dossier it's all backfiring on them hard.

I think the story has played out for the time being, pending new information, revelations, or conclusions.

It interests me the way people from the Party of Reagan handwaved away the allegations and questions. It also intrigues me the way Trump-supporting Red Pillers accepted a volume of Trickle Truth that they would never accept from a woman.

Because we haven't been watching CNN that's why!
And you prove how absolutely nothing you know about what has been going on rather than what your news circuit feeds you.

More importantly in the scheme of things, the party of Regan and all. The Liberals are the bigger Commie threat to America in that regard than Putin will ever be.

More Liberals than ever, are saying they are Socialists. That's not something to take lightly, and to watch Liberals sit there and Red Herring the fuck out Trump while he's setting them all up for a big reveal. That's rich, to which I tell you. Watch the show.

So they decided to cover some actual whitehouse turnover news.

Are we really doing another "Russia narrative is dead" thread? LOL You cannot expect big revelations daily/weekly/even monthly.

• Forced to light today is that the President had a hand in shaping Donald Jrs. lies. Not insignificant. All over the media today.
• There is a major sanctions bill by an overwhelming veto proof majority on Trump's desk. No comment by him. Others in administration saying things like, "He will sign it soon."
• Putin now moves to expel our diplomats. No comment by Trump.
• Putin/Russia plans mass rush to border style old cold war troop exercise upcoming.

That's where the "Russia" thing is ... all discussed today on multiple sites.

I await the scared emperor to fire Mueller or Sessions. Either is a huge sign of guilt. The wheels are turning, every day. Have no fear.

Rew, Patrick, TenPoundBass, BlueSardine and a few other Trumptards will publish whatever words come out of Sean Hannity's mouth on any given day/night.

It's as simple as that.

When those word/proclamations are shown to be pure bullshit, they'll act as it was never claimed, and move on to Sean Hannity's next, insane, Bill Shine, FAUX News talking points.

Where are all the former populist-right nutjob "news anchors," radio and cable news jockeys, anyways?

Bizarro world. Bankers are immune from prosecution. The MSM is crap. Both parties are corrupt. Just look at the rumors swirling around about a Deval "Ameriquest" Patrick running for president. The elites run this country, and manipulate the "news.'

Well Fusion GPS had Russian connections. Trump should appoint a special prosecutor on Hillary and Comey and Lynch. Lynch already pleaded the 5th-is there any other Attorney general in the history of our country that has pleaded the 5th??

Sessions is getting a promotion. You'll just love the next AG.

Yeah, that would do it.

The media chases stories, so each new Russia thread gets play. Each new Trump fuckup gets play. When Trump is focused on Russia, his fuckups are Russia threads, and they get lots of play. It's that simple.

The Trump supporters seem to think it's a big plot controlled by somebody (who?) to damage Trump. Fuck Occam's Razor - doesn't apply.

25   MisdemeanorRebel   2017 Aug 2, 5:31pm  

Maddow or the Aged British Hipster cover some far-fetched story with few to no sources, and those questionable or simply heresay.
The Twitteratti cover it the next day.
TDS Sufferers absorb this and it gets added to their 'memory' of 'all the' Trump-Russia Collusion, even though it is eventually debunked or forgotten.

Meanwhile, Cable Show Turds, Verified Twitter Liberals and Facebook Posters "compete" to be the first to be snarky to a tweet.

Let's pee on the prostitutes, shall we?

TL;DR: Anti-Trumpites of 2017 are like the Freepers of 1999.

Except some actually have television shows.

For the record, Mueller is no liberal, nor or many of his staff. Prior to Trump people from all stripes would simply call him, and his team, by one word: "patriots".

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/02/opinion/donald-trump-russia-collusion-cia.html?ref=opinion

From linked opinion article
Of course, to determine whether collusion occurred, we would have to know whether the Trump campaign continued to meet with Russian representatives subsequent to the June meeting. The early “courting” stage is almost always somewhat open and discoverable. Only after the Russian intelligence officer develops a level of control can the relationship be moved out of the public eye. John Brennan, the former director of the C.I.A., recently testified, “Frequently, people who go along a treasonous path do not know they are on a treasonous path until it is too late.”
So, Trump accidently committed treason?

Russia missing again!

Has the whole charade collapsed?I haven't heard the clearly fake "Russia collusion" news mentioned in the mainstream press for quite a while now.

Isn't it time for stories on how the entire thing was simply slander by the mainstream media?

That would require honesty and introspection on the behalf of our clearly propaganda mainstream media. I wouldn’t hold your breath for any mea culpa’s. They’ll ignore whatever doesn’t fit their narrative, downplay it, whatabout it with some other scandal, and try to sweep the whole thing under the rug. With the millions of articles and hyperbole about the topic, however, this is going to be like trying to sweep the Titanic under a 4 foot throw rug.

There was never anything there, they were only hoping to find a botched real estate deal or misplaced transactions so they could pre-sell that as a baloney narrative.

Now they are trying to sell the idea that using an informant to spy on the Trump Campaign was ... to protect Trump. LOL!

Anybody think Clinton got such protection? Hahahahah

To paraphrase Quigley above, that would require honesty on the behalf of the very apparatus that was spying on Trump.

Pompeo Affirms, Reluctantly, That Russia Tried to Help Trump Win....


So just to recap:
Hillary raised Hundreds of Billions more than Trump and still Lost.

Because, according to the DNC and the Media, Russia spent $43,000 on Facebook which nullified those hundreds of Billions given to pro-Clinton SuperPACs

Russia's Facebook Ad Spend was about a tenth of what Bill Clinton got from a Uranium One Partner Renaissance Capital ($500,000) a few days after the deal went through, but that had nothing to do with anything unless you're a crazed conspiracy theorist.

Actually, almost all of the Russian spending on Facebook was after the election and most of that was intended simply to sow racial discord in the US (which worked very well). This is according to Rob Goldman, head of Facebook advertising, and his destruction of the Russia hoax with a few simple facts will never be forgiven by the MSM.

Russia had nothing to do with the election of Trump, but the media repeated the lie about Russia so long that lots of people mistakenly believe it.
39   Patrick   2018 May 23, 6:42pm  

Nothing much. So Russia wanted Trump to win, big deal. Every country favors one US presidential candidate or another.

But there is no evidence of Russian influence, only copious and blindingly obvious evidence that the MSM hyped the issue to Mars and back without evidence because they hate Trump so much.

Since the MSM has so thoroughly discredited its supposed impartiality, it is desperate for anything it can point to to

and the majority of those ads were seen AFTER the election, not before...

44% of total ad impressions (number of times ads were displayed) were before the US election on November 8, 2016; 56% were after the election.
Roughly 25% of the ads were never shown to anyone. That’s because advertising auctions are designed so that ads reach people based on relevance, and certain ads may not reach anyone as a result.
