Clapper must have had to rent a wide body manure spreader to scatter this much bulls**t.
Anybody believe that one of the top priorities of the “deep state” under Barack Obama in 2016 was to help protect the integrity of the Donald Trump campaign, even if it required placing an operative inside Trump’s operation in order to safeguard his campaign? Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper must have had to rent a wide body manure spreader to scatter this much bulls**t in the last few days:
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Tuesday on “The View” that Donald Trump should be “happy” that at least one FBI informant made contact with members of his 2016 presidential campaign.
That’s because, he said, the FBI was trying to “protect the campaign.”
Clapper tried to drive home his point that an FBI informant in the Trump campaign had to do with “the Russians, not spying on the campaign.”
“What they were trying to do was protect our political system and protect the campaign,” he said.
“Was the FBI spying on Trump’s campaign?” co-host Joy Behar asked Clapper.
“No, they were not,” he replied. “They were spying, a term I don’t particularly like, on what the Russians were doing, trying to understand, were the Russians infiltrating?”
The Obama deep state was trying to “protect” Trump’s campaign? Excuse me for a second…
Ok, let’s assume what Clapper’s peddling there is remotely close to the truth. If the FBI was trying to protect the integrity of political campaigns during a U.S. election from any Russian influence that might be in their midst, they I assume Clapper made sure they also had an FBI informant inside Hillary Clinton’s campaign too, right? RIGHT!? Strange though, I haven’t heard anything about that being the case.
Bonus points: After all we now know about the shenanigans pulled by the likes of James Comey, John Brennan, and Clapper as well, he had the audacity to express a concern about public trust in the heads of intelligence agencies under Obama:

The Democrats have settled on an anti-corruption angle for the November midterms, and it should be enough to keep voters… laughing all the way to the polls. Instead of coming up with their own slogan, they basically stole Trump’s:
Alternate Dem midterm slogan: “Psychological Projection We Can Believe In!” Could they be more shameless? Pelosi and Schumer are so swampy that they’re covered in duckweed and have webbed hands and feet.
Between that and saying tax cuts and the end of Obama-era net neutrality rules would result in death, destruction and full-blown Armageddon, the circus comedy act of Schumer & Pelosi remains the most hilarious attraction under the DNC Big Top.
Stuff like this is what has the Dems crapping through a keyhole:
You’ve got to reluctantly give the Democrats points for their willingness to look any possible sense of complete and utter feelings of shame right in the face and yell “F**K OFF!” These people are something else:
Democrats are preparing to highlight allegations of corruption surrounding the Trump administration — and a legislative agenda to prevent future abuses — as they continue rolling out their party platform ahead of November’s midterm elections.
The first planks of the “A Better Deal” platform, released last year, focused on the party’s economic agenda. Now, with questions about pay-to-play politics swirling around President Trump and his current and former aides, Democrats are set to introduce anti-corruption proposals Monday billed as “A Better Deal for Our Democracy.”
According to a senior Democratic official familiar with the announcement, the new agenda will include proposals that would eliminate loopholes that allow lobbyists and lawmakers to buy and sell influence without the public’s knowledge. The message: Elect Democrats in November to “clean up the chaos and corruption in Washington.”
I’ll personally give the DNC a couple dollars if they’ll let Bob Menendez do their first anti-corruption commercial.
If I didn’t know better I might guess that Hillary Clinton’s now earning a fortune by being paid under the table by the RNC for maintaining a high profile in the Democratic Party with important midterm elections just a few months away. I mean, what else could explain this?
"We have to win back the Congress," Hillary Clinton said Friday at a DNC event. "I’ll be there with you every step of the way because we are going to take back the country we love."
Yep, this is the headline: Guns used in Texas killings were less lethal than in other mass shootings.
The attack at a Texas high school Friday echoed the all-too-familiar horrors Americans are accustomed to seeing on the news. But two details set it apart from the list of other recent deadly attacks: explosives and weapons used.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott in Texas says the gunman, Dimitrios Pagourtzis, who was a student at Santa Fe High School, used two firearms: a shotgun and .38 caliber revolver, both of which he got from his father. Ten were left dead, mostly students.
Disgustingly, the mainstream media seems so disappointed an AR-15 wasn’t used that they actually spinning 10 dead students as “but imagine how bad it COULD have been!”
No word from USA Today on if the guns used in the shooting were the kind that can accommodate the notorious “chainsaw bayonet” accessory:
But Democrats on occasion like to prove they haven’t lost their perspective. After Dems have gone to the mat in defense of violent gangs, Debbie Wasserman Schultz wasn’t afraid to use the “t” word: Terrorists. However, she wasn’t talking about MS-13, but rather the NRA:
According to her recent interview with the Huffington Post, Wasserman Schultz is no fan of the gun rights organization, and she’s not afraid to show it.
“The NRA is kind of just shy of a terrorist organization,” Schultz told the magazine. “They have done everything they can to perpetuate the culture of violence that we have in our country with the spread of assault weapons across the nation.”
And DWS is NOT just shy of being totally nuts — she’s there:
The Democrats should feel free to run on the “NRA are terrorists and MS-13 are symbols of the founding principles of America” platform.
