Crazy prediction: That ‘Russian spy’ story is about to get a LOT less interesting to liberal media outlets

Resistance boner killer.

There’s been a lot of talk about an alleged Russian spy in the news lately, and because it quickly fits into the lib narrative about the 2016 election, it took off quickly:

I have a weird feeling that story is about to get a lot less interesting to many liberal media outlets. Check out the year the accused Russian spy started mingling with the federal government:

Accused Russian agent Maria Butina had wider high-level contacts in Washington than previously known, taking part in 2015 meetings between a visiting Russian official and two senior officials at the U.S. Federal Reserve and Treasury Department.

2015? Suddenly I sense a great boner killer among The Resistance.

The meetings, revealed by several people familiar with the sessions and a report from a Washington think tank that arranged them, involved Stanley Fischer, Fed vice chairman at the time, and Nathan Sheets, then Treasury undersecretary for international affairs.

Butina travelled to the United States in April 2015 with Alexander Torshin, then the Russian Central Bank deputy governor, and they took part in separate meetings with Fischer and Sheets to discuss U.S.-Russian economic relations during Democratic former President Barack Obama’s administration.

If this story goes any deeper into the era of the Obama administration, it’s going to disappear from the mainstream media’s radar faster than Nancy Pelosi can assign a body count to tax cuts.

Hillary Clinton finished slamming Trump at Ozyfest before the hospital noticed she was missing

Russian to judgment

Yesterday afternoon, Hillary Clinton spoke at an event called Ozyfest in NYC. I know this will surprise you greatly, but she continued whining about the election and Donald Trump:

On Saturday, Hillary Clinton took to the stage of New York City’s OZY Fest to talk, among other things, about President Donald Trump and his meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

In a clip played by CNN, Clinton takes a stab at Trump for not taking a strong stand against Russian election meddling.

“The great mystery is why this president has not spoken up for our country, and we saw this most clearly in this recent meeting with Putin,” she said. She added that “we still do not know” what happened in the room when the two met.

According to The Hill, Clinton also called the whole thing “disturbing.”

“So this idea that somehow we are not sure where our own president stands is deeply disturbing,” Clinton said. “And the best way to deal with that is to vote in November.”

Number of times “she won the popular vote” was overheard at Ozyfest: 1,748. Number of times the “popular vote” has been what’s decided the outcome of a U.S. presidential election: ZERO.

And then there’s this:

Hillary would have stayed longer for the interview but she had to get back to the hospital before they discovered she was missing.

When I was watching the video of her 45-minute interview, something in the tribute film caught my eye. This would have been awkward if Clinton or any of her superfans in the audience had any self-awareness whatsoever:

“I’ll take ‘places I didn’t go in 2016’ for $500, Alex.”

Also, Clinton slammed Trump over his Putin meeting, which is, ya know, kind of funny coming from Queen Reset Button:

Hey, who are you going to believe, Hillary or your lying eyes and ears?

Oh, but that was all “for the children” or something!

Oops: During Bernie & Alexandria’s Socialist-Palooza tour stop in Kansas, Ocasio-Cortez promised to help ‘flip this seat red in November’

Freudian Slips of the Socialist Kind.

Welcome to “Freudian Slips of the Socialist Kind”! In today’s episode, we have socialist darlings Bernie Sanders and his barely capable understudy Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez barnstorming a nation that to them doesn’t look nearly enough like Venezuela. The Dem socialist House candidate from New York, in a short video, has promised to help turn the seat in Kansas into a Republican victory. Wait, what? Well, that’s what she said:

There are two schools of thought to be had here. One) She Guevara misspoke and Freudian Slipped the “blue wave” out of existence. Or two) She means “red” in the “hammer & sickle” sense. I think I know which one my money’s on.

PERFECT: This is the quintessential essence of Barack Obama

Bernie Sanders probably nodded in agreement from inside one of his three houses.

Does this perfectly encapsulate the former president and other liberal/progressive hypocrites perfectly, or what?

Bernie Sanders probably nodded in agreement with Obama’s slam on the homes of the wealthy from inside one of his three houses.

TWO-FER: Hillary Clinton’s self-awareness still NOWHERE to be found as Trump hammers her with awkward Russia flashback

Ouch!

Time for a Hillary Clinton-related two-fer…

First off, in case you’re wondering if Hillary Clinton’s compunction bypass surgery was a long-term success, I think this latest demonstration of a complete and utter lack of introspection provides an answer:

She has no business criticizing the speed at which any public official defends U.S. diplomats. But to put it into Hillary’s words…

*****

Also this week: Hillary Clinton took a swipe at Trump, saying he’s not nearly tough enough on Russia:

Trump fired back this way:

OOF! There’s a casualty there, and it’s not Trump.

Proof-positive that Chuck Schumer’s all for getting tough on Putin, except when he isn’t

Even an IMAX screen can’t handle this much projection.

New York Sen. Chuck Schumer’s among the most vocal liberals when it comes to sounding the alarm about how President Trump is treating Vladimir Putin:

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer is calling for immediate hearings with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and other top officials to learn more about President Donald Trump’s private meeting on Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Our Republican colleagues need to join us in demanding testimony from the president’s national security team that was in Helsinki, and we need to do that immediately,” Schumer declared Tuesday. “We need hearings, as soon as possible, to assess what President Trump might have committed to President Putin in secret. President Trump’s public statements were alarming enough.”

“The Senate needs to know what happened behind closed doors. Does anyone believe he was tougher on Putin in secret? You can’t assume anything but as weak as he was in public with President Putin, he was even worse in private. Why else did he not want anyone in the room?” Schumer asked.

After Trump clarified his comments, Schumer wasn’t buying that either:

Schumer’s talking tough about Putin, but it was a different story back in 2003 when the Russian prez and longtime KGB agent was visiting New York. Schumer’s nose couldn’t possibly have gotten any browner. Watch:

Just look at Schumer getting all tough on Putin right to his face!

And hey, is that a bow at the 40 second mark?

Never mind that just a few years ago the Dems roared with applause after Obama mocked Mitt Romney’s comments about Russia. DC libs are the last people who should be accusing Trump of not being tough enough on Putin. Even an IMAX screen isn’t big enough to handle all this projection.

Media manages to report on Michelle Obama’s ‘nonpartisan’ voter registration push without laughing

HAHAHA!

Imagine being able to publish the word “non-partisan” when talking about any initiative headed by Michelle Obama? It’s not a bridge too far for Politico and others:

The word “nonpartisan” here should only be said while accompanied by the most exaggerated finger quotes possible:

Michelle Obama is jumping into the 2018 campaigns with a voter registration initiative that will be strictly nonpartisan — exciting and frustrating top Democrats who’d like the popular former first lady to actively campaign for candidates.

The initiative, scheduled to be launched Thursday, is the result of months of quiet conversations and planning full of false starts and uncertainty about whether to go forward. It will have the former first lady appear in public service announcements and at live events throughout the country into the fall, according to multiple people informed of the plans.

She’ll be joined by several A-list celebrities, including actor Tom Hanks, country stars Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, Houston Rockets star Chris Paul, singer Janelle Monae and “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Nothing says “nonpartisan” movement to me more than the inclusion of Michelle Obama and the “Hamilton” creator who said Trump’s going straight to hell.

Totally non-biased former FBI director: Vote for Dems this November or you’re not a patriot

Speaking of interfering in elections…

Are we completely sure that James Comey didn’t send text messages to Peter Strzok under the pseudonym “Lisa Page”? The more this guy talks the more I’m convinced there was in fact a Deep State cabal hell bent on dragging Hillary Clinton across the finish line:

And yet the Dems actually want everybody to believe this guy went out of his way to derail HILLARY’S campaign.

Ever notice that when people like Comey say policy differences don’t matter, it’s only Republicans who are supposed to put aside their policy differences?

Hillary’s 2016 campaign advisers are really handling her loss well (cue eye roll)

This is as close to the inside of the White House they’ll get.

Two former advisers to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, Philippe Reines and Adam Parkhomenko, staged an emergency protest near the White House last night after the Trump/Putin press conference. Nice to see they’re handing Clinton’s loss — and it was a loss — so maturely:

“Definitely in need of chants”?

How about “Hey, hey, ho, ho, Hillary should have gone to Wisconsin, no?”

And they’re planning more for tonight. What I find most fascinating about these ongoing snit fits is the number of people who have so much f***ing free time. But I guess it beats these guys being busy working in the White House — and those pictures are as close to the inside as they’ll get.

*****

Also, if you’re keeping score at home update your talking points accordingly…

Out: He colluded with Russia so IMPEACH!

In: Help us buy a big balloon:

The average pre-school class behaves more maturely.

John Brennan slams Trump for ‘giving Putin a pass’ on stuff that happened while HE was CIA director under Obama

Part of the problem now wants to be part of the solution!

Former CIA Director John Brennan has said that Trump’s behavior towards Russia and Putin has exceeded the “high crimes & misdemeanors” threshold and is “nothing short of treasonous.”

Brennan is of course now a big-time media darling because he’s so Resistance-y, and on the Today Show this morning he sounded the alarm again:

All those things — all of it — happened while Brennan was in charge of U.S. Central Intelligence (and while Obama was president). But I wouldn’t expect the media to be very vocal in pointing all that out while listening to the same people who allowed the problem to grow explain how it should all be fixed. It’s always fun when part of the problem wants to be part of the solution.

We live in a bizarre time.
