And the hits keep on coming.
From Roger L. Simon:
Of all the tantrums being thrown by the Democrats in their inability to accept defeat and move on, perhaps the most absurd is the Great Russian Hacking Scandal.
Did the Russians under express orders of Communist Party General Secretary... scratch that... President Vladimir Putin himself direct the hacking of the computers of the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign?Simon mocked the source of this conspiratorial theory, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper:
Clapper, it will be remembered, blatantly lied to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on March 13, 2013, when he replied to Senator Ron Wyden's question "Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?" with a resounding "no," which the DNI then doubled down on.
Poor Clapper got a bit of egg on his face, several dozen actually, only three months later when Eric Snowden revealed to the world that the NSA was collecting just such data on those millions of Americans via our cellphones.So the ice is thin, and the sun is shining -- but there goes the Washington Post saying crazy stuff like the Russians have hacked our electrical power grid.
So why is President Obama personally -- and he has said it -- pushing this nonsensical excise for losing an election to:
- A rookie candidate
- Unloved by a majority of Americans
- With half the money Clinton spent
Because Obama thought he could get away with it.
Sure. Why not? He got away with demonizing Sarah Palin. He got away with saying Mitt paid no taxes. He got away with Benghazi. He got away with you can keep your doctor.
And the media by and large is accepting this from President Obama:
Based on uniform intelligence assessments, the Russians were responsible for hacking the DNC and that as a consequence, it is important for us to review all elements of that and to make sure that we are preventing that kind of interference from cyber attacks in the future. My hope is that the president-elect is going to be similarly concerned that we aren’t going to have foreign interference in our election process.I doubt the public is.
Most normal Americans accept President Trump's victory and think the Democrats are a bunch of entitled brats who need a spanking.
The longer Democrats and their media buddies act like poor sports, the longer they will be out of power.
And if you think the media has any power, you have not been paying attention.
Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
It covers the nomination process only. The general election will be covered in a sequel.
