Donald Trump finally acknowledges for the first time that he won the presidency with the help of the Russians

Earlier today Donald Trump tweeted, “I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected.” This is significant in that it’s the first time, in the over two years since the election, that he has acknowledged what all the legitimate experts have been saying since 2016 — that the Russians did interfere in our election, that their interference was significant, and the it played an important role in helping him to defeat Hillary Clinton. Once people began pointing this out, Donald Trump promptly removed the post from Twitter. Lest anyone forget about it, though, here it is. One hopes that, someday soon, it’s read back to him during a deposition as part of his impeachment inquiry.

    It wasn’t his fault that he misspoke. He was thrown off his game by the presence of the U.S.S. McCain.

    Does anyone remember that he used to claim that the Russians, if they were interfering, were interfering on behalf of Clinton? Now that was fucking hilarious.

    He actually said that again yesterday, anonymous. After being asked by a member of the press about his tweet acknowledging the “help” of the Russians, he said they actually helped “the other side,” which is absolutely fucking laughable. Here’s the video.

    Yesterday was a big day for Trump on Twitter. He also called the U.S.S. McCain story “fake news” after the White House had already acknowledged that, yes, they really did have a tarp put over the ship’s name so as not to upset our President.

    The Republican’s for the Rule of Law video is propaganda in both form and content, imho.

    Aloha, For those who think actual historical events are important. On the 31st of May, 2009, Dr George Tiller was murdered by an anti-woman, far right, white male terrorist. To maximize the terror, Dr Tiller was killed in broad daylight, in his church, with his friends, family and fellow parishioners in the room.

    FF see, there’s another example of a disconnect on what words mean. A simple statement of factual actions taken, and how those actions meet the legal definition of obstruction, isn’t what we non-delusional types would generally accept as an example of propaganda. Propaganda is where the lies you propagate so willingly are the key component.

    Fake John Brown,

    I don’t have time to get into it right now and probably not much this weekend either. (Mom is making me clean out the garage.) I will say the first piece of evidence offered (involving Comey) is a misrepresentation of what Trump said through editing. Trump said in that interview he was going to fire Comey anyway it was just of matter of when…

    I find it hilarious that you characterize this propaganda piece as a “simple statement of factual actions taken”. It definitely has the form of propaganda and it is not a simple statement of fact. Almost every image is hand-picked and edited with manipulations of re-framing, zooming-in, zooming-out, or color taken out. The soundtrack is awesome though if your goal is emotional appeal.

    I repeat: In this case, the open question of obstruction can’t be analyzed without analyzing the dynamic between (possible) treason vs. (possible) obstruction. Anybody who pretends otherwise is lying or dumb. The video makers in this propaganda piece are not dumb but they are relying on the general public’s susceptibility to being duped by half-truths and emotional appeals.

    Just wanted to share an email I received today:

    I invite you to join Christians across the nation on Sunday, June 2, by praying for President Trump.

    1 Timothy 2:2 calls us to pray for kings and all those in authority that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.

    The political divide in Washington, D.C. is widening, and Congress is in a political gridlock leaving our nation at a serious crossroad. The only hope for healing in our country is God Himself (2 Chronicles 7:14).

    Rev. Franklin Graham, along with 250 Christian leaders, is asking followers of Christ across our nation to set aside June 2 as a special day of national prayer for President Trump:
    “The onslaught from the President’s enemies is unbelievable. In the history of our country, no president has been attacked as he has. The lies and the deceptions rage on.”

    He continued, “I want the President to know, and to feel, and to understand that the prayers of millions of people are behind him. My prayer is that President Trump will know and understand the power of God in a new way and that he will seek His face as he leads this nation to greatness with God’s help.”

    Please join us in prayer on Sunday. Pray on your own, with your family, your community group, or your church.

    EOS,
    I was driving home early Sunday morning through Bakersfield
    Listening to gospel music on the colored radio station
    And the preacher said, “You know you always have the
    Lord by your side”
    And I was so pleased to be informed of this
    That I ran twenty red lights in his honor
    Thank you Jesus, thank you lord

    Not that I think Russia hacked the DNC. The transfer speed is faster than internet. Seth Rich downloaded it onto a drive. Assange refused to verbally identify Rich as a source but gave a perceptible nod when asked. He also put up 20 grand for information about Rich’s murder. Assange will appear in US court and verify this.

    Snowden came to the NSA from the CIA. They hate the NSA because they have ALL communications and that is a threat. It was Admiral Mike Rogers, former NSA chief who warned DJT Trump Tower was bugged. Assange is an ally of the white hats. How am I clueless?

Current plans seems to call for Assange to die while in custody. But I will say this, you know how to follow the Leader.

    I’m sure Mayor Pete will bring about and equally radical shift in the American political scene after he defeats Trump in 2020.

    I think the internet in its current incarnation is a confirmation bias machine. If you have a going in point of view and you go do some searches, you find confirmation of your point of view. If your newsfeed is showing you things, it’s showing you things that confirm your point of view, by and large.

They are easy to win–if you are not a farmer, auto worker, retail clerk. But I know what you think. All you know how to do is follow the Leader. An independent thought is not part of your repertoire.

    Aloha HW, “the White Hat offensive”? The White Hats are an MI6 created salifist/jihdi propaganda and support group in Syria. I can only surmise that we are going to be bombarded with a pro-war propaganda message now. The plutocrats are getting desperate. So far we have initiated Trade Wars with Mexico, India, China, Iran, Venezuela, and Russia to name the top ones. Of course we have shooting wars in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, and Afghanistan. This is what a crumbling Empire looks like. Enemies every where and no prospects for peace in our life time. I don’t know if I can take any more winning.

    Aloha HW, Trump authorized the release of documents related to the investigation of the Trump campaign, I assume that is what you are muttering about. Been a week now. Nothing yet. Kinda like those secret indictment we are waiting for.
    The fact that you don’t know what the White Hats are only demonstrates the breadth of your ignorance. Unless the Leader tells you how and what to think you seem remarkably ignorant of events in the world. Your comments about Assange border on the down right stupid. I would have thought Q would have told you that the US has been interrogating Assange while utilizing psychotropic drugs on him. But hey, at least you know how to play Follow the Leader.

    Don’t know why you say I’m muttering. Pretty sure I’m speaking clearly. The breadth of my ignorance! No, you are ignorant. I’ve given you so much to work with it’s not funny but you still don’t know shit.

    That’s interesting you say anyone who doesn’t know who the MI6 White Hats are is broadly ignorant. How many people have heard of it per capita do you think? More than 1% or far less than 1%? If you interviewed random people on the street how many would you have to talk to to find someone who knew what you were talking about? So just about everyone is ignorant for not knowing your obscure harping point? That’s weird.

    Aloha HW, Where were you when your leader was launching missiles into Syria? What did he use for evidence? I understand you are a product of No Child Left Behind, and so your critical thinking skills are probably permanently stunted, but I did not know how readily you throw the past into the memory hole.
    So I guess your position is “I’m just as ignorant as 99% of the people out there”. And yet you want us to believe that you are on top of the secret/deep state war with Trump. It seems to me that you do what you do best and follow your Leader. I am a dolt but I find independent thinkers much more interesting. What ever folks say about JH, she is thoughtful most of the time (I can only thank her for accurately identifying me as a dolt, I was of course too stupid to see it myself) .

    Still waiting for you and EOS to articulate your thoughts on the Yemen war. Genocide does seem to me some thing we should take seriously and evaluate. I will give you a hint, Trump vetoed the War Powers resolution calling for an end of US support of the Saudi war in Yemen. I guess you are in favor of an Imperial President who can unilaterally decide war. So much for checks and balances, seems pretty un-American to me.

  44. Hyborian Warlord

    That was against deep state targets. The President used a false flag/possible hoax poison gas attack to do it. That’s what you are completely ignorant about. Iran and North Korea are deep state vehicles designed to start WWIII among other things. Trump set Kim free from being totally controlled and stopped the plan to ignite war through NK. Iran is next. No war necessary.

    No. I am being sarcastic. Not knowing would not mean you are not stupid it would just mean you have gaps in your knowledge like everyone else. What is wrong with HW admitting he has not heard of “The White Hats”? It wasn’t hard to know HW was using the term “white hat” differently.

    Speaking of gaps in knowledge–I have asked at least a dozen democrats what they think about Tulsi and only one has ever heard of her. I find that strange. You find that strange but these are not ignorant people it is just indicative of their consumption of different media.

    My guess is that less than 1% of the population has heard of the White Hats fwiw. Less than 10% could pick Tulsi out of a lineup.

    Aloha, I make no excuses for my ignorance, doltish folks never recognize their ignorance. It is easy to forget that I am also dogmatic, but
    “. Iran and North Korea are deep state vehicles designed to start WWIII among other things. Trump set Kim free from being totally controlled and stopped the plan to ignite war through NK. Iran is next. No war necessary.”

    I don’t think I would ever be doltish or dogmatic enough to proclaim the above. I think HW is trying to steal my rice bowl (a reference to the Steve McQueen movie “The Sand Pebbles”).

    Anyone else noticing how much water is falling out of the sky right now. The smarty pants scientist told us that climate change would cause more moisture in the rain. Heard the other day that each rain event that occurs now contains 3 to 4 times as much moisture as they used to (massive flooding i the mid-west anyone notice).
    By the way did you mean “Democrats” as in members of the party or “democrats”, people that some time vote? Most “democrats” don’t bother paying any attention to politics, while most “Democrats” know that Tulsi would transform their party, and are thus opposed to her . As I’ve said repeatedly, I am not a lesser evil voter (been there done that) now I vote for the good candidate that gives me a reason to vote for her.
