Oh, I'm way past him (or tw, for that matter): doesn't mean I'm not right.

I find the Hillary Clinton/Tulsi Gabbard bashup to be entertaining

Hillary has now seen fit to expand Russiagate to a Democratic political rival by saying she is a Russian asset.

On a podcast, instead of a journalistic interview, where there would be questions.

ZERO actual evidence presented!

This is a clumsy mistake in all ways. Suggesting Russiagate applies to a political rival makes it seem like more obvious that Russiagate is conspiracy theory.

Suggesting it about someone who's active military personnel and a Congresswoman who is vetted for national security is nuts.

The move only empowers Gabbard, whose numbers will surely rise.

Bill was always able to use his political power with aplomb. He could sense what was needed, and how things would play out. Hillary uses it like the proverbial bull in a china shop. She's never had his particular skill.

Tulsi may be the perfect candidate to run against Trump; being a beautiful younger woman AND shrewd and very smart, she would be a target that he cannot attack in the usual ways. It would queer his game theory; this is something he's never had to deal with on a public stage. It won't happen; Tulsi is an outlier, and people will be too suspicious of her to vote for her.

But it's entertaining.

I saw the Clinton news piece on Gabbard and was flabbergasted. I think the average reader hears Clinton saying this: "Everyone who doesn't support establishment Democrats is a Russian." That's stupid and clumsy. This is why people want HRC to shut up and go away-- she's poison.

However, on a literally unrelated note.... Considering everything we know about Russia's involvement in election meddling in 2016-- such as the bombshell game-changer that our intelligence agencies found Russians directly skewing local election infrastructure to play the electoral college like a piano-- I find it odd and distressing that anyone doesn't think saying, "Russiagate is conspiracy theory," couldn't be misinterpreted as meaning, "Russia didn't interfere in our elections."

These are true, non-conspiracy facts: Russia interfered in our election. Russia wanted Trump to win, and they succeeded. Trump asked Russia to damage his opponents, and they did. Russia is STILL interfering with our politics, our intelligence agencies GUARANTEE they will interfere in upcoming elections, and Trump is STILL asking foreign powers to interfere in our elections. Nobody actually disagrees with any of these component pieces. So what's the conspiracy?

My theory is that Bill said Tulsi would look good in a blue dress and Hillary lost it.

Nothing there matters until after Iowa. It will all be forgotten.

Tw, you should probably be sitting down for this:

Tulsi must be a conundrum for you. She wasn't officer material, then she was; but, only because she got a degree in business administration. Officer material with a degree in business!

"Russia interfered in our election"

"Russians directly skewing local election infrastructure to play the electoral college like a pian"

I know I asked about this before, and I know someone answered the question, but I done forget, so -- someone -- help a guy out...

How exactly did the Ruskies muck around with the election, election process, or the electoral college?

Read all about it-- here's 522 references to Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections; for starters here's the 2017 analysis issued by the Director of National Intelligence. And I'm sure you heard that the FBI found that "Russian interference" was "sweeping and systematic" and indicted twenty-six Russian citizens and three Russian organizations? I don't know which part of this you didn't hear about, it's been pretty big in the news for like three years.

How did they do it, like exactly what methods?
I'm pretty sure the intelligence community doesn't announce specific details of national security, but here are a couple of main areas to give you a rough idea.

Again you only read what you want to read to spin misinformation and fables. A business school degree does not necessarily mean one thinks like a business school graduate. But so many, who make stupid decisions based in business school myths and lies, are business school graduates. It explains disasters such as Flint MI's water and the murder of seven Challenger astronauts.

Only a tiny relationship exists between officer material and a business school degree. That also obvious when one read what was written and not what one wants to see.

Japanese even define why one may get an MBA. To learn how to 'Made Being in American'. To learn how that person may think and then understand why that person does so many stupid things.

.

One thing that remains irresponsible is a wacko extremist denying what every patriot knows - and that anti-Americans deny. The Russians clearly interfered in American elections. They got the president they wanted. Extremist even deny that clear and obvious reality.

Russia has never made more strides as they have in the past three years. So many successes in the past three years because a scumbag, that anti-Americans love, did it for them. Russians did not fire a shot to get Americans to surrender. To surrender so quickly that their half eaten meals were still sitting on tables. Only an anti-American (the extremist who are believes in the KKK, Nazis, and White Supremacists) would love this scumbag. And post insults to prove only anti-Americans are right (yes a pun).

How curious. He uses hate and insults, just like a KKK, Nazi, or White Supremacist, to justify extremism and intentional lies.
