We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

In other words, people in the know knew it was BS, but used it anyway.
Trump-Russia was not just a routine political lie or hoax. It could be termed a coup-attempt. Scott explains: Coup Plotters Emerge.
I am just not paranoid enough to have believed all of this until now. This is one for the history books. As he says, Watergate was a peanut compared to this.
I wonder whether any of our readers ever believed Trump-Russia collusion.

As my friend Gary F. said,
"It's all about the cash."
Follow the money - Deep throat redux
I never believed it - but then, I don't believe anything reported by MSM, including Fox
Watergate was a coup too! Nixon fell into the trap and did what he did but most of what people think he did was fake news by a left leaning MSM.
I think I always knew Russiagate was a Clinton/Democrat fabrication. After a number of months of listening to some of the Obama cabinet members I then deduced that they too were in on the scam. Eventually it became obvious that the FBI and DOJ were in it well over their heads. What stumps me to this very day is WHY there is still no perp walk or indictments? I assume it is because the DOJ is still 'crooked'. This is worse for us as a nation than it is for Trump. Our government is dishonest in almost every department and at every level and we cannot fix it or bring the perps to justice. This can only get worse when Biden (I mean the Democrats since Biden is mentally incompetent) steal the election and regain power. All of the phones and computers will be wiped/bleached and history rewritten. I actually thought John Durham would do the right thing
Brennan, Comey,Clapper and others, and...wait for it....the head Russia!Russia!Russia! investigator, Robert Mueller...are the subject of a book called "the Hammer".
Whistleblower Dennis Montgomery , a network systems contractor with high level security clearance(s) discover extensive abuse and attempted to notify the FBI.
"The Hammer" was a US Gov surveillance system designed to protect "the Homeland"(ugh) after 9-11.
Mueller provided the computers to house it, and the system was moved to Fort Washington,MD and put to use spying on domestic enemies of the Obama administration.
A good and timely read before the election: five bucks at Kindle.

Comey/Brennan/Obama/Biden and others must be experiencing a magnetic pull.

Now I understand why Biden is the Democratic candidate despite being so obviously incapable. The plotters need a cover-up guy who has the same exposure they do. This isn't an election so much as an escape plan."
I never believed Trump-Russia collusion.
I believed from the beginning it was a coup attempt. And the evidence started to dribble out.
The premise was unbelievable from the start. Putin preferred anyone over Hillary?
It never passed the "silly" test.
Of all possible candidates, why the hell would the Russians want DJT? They already knew that Hillary was easy to deal with. Just make a suitable donation to the Clinton International Money Laundering Fund and you could get away with anything. In fact the Russians would have known far more about her operation than most of us, since the e-mails she used to conduct her nefarious business were completely unprotected, and Russian espionage has always been top drawer. They'd have known exactly how much they'd have to shell out to get whatever they wanted. Anyone beside Hillary would be a mystery and therefore a risk. So there is no way they'd have tried to get anyone else as US C-in-C. Any claim to the contrary would have to be a fabrication.
Why, in our country of "Us vs Them", is it an assumption that Russia, Russia, Russia is one harmonious foe pulling for Us or against Them?
Is it possible, with the "Millions" of people who passed away from the big C-19, that one side or the other took a greater hit in the "(Old) people who used to vote" categories?
Let's hope our polling stations are open by Tuesday Nov 4.
About 90% of the government can be dismantled.
Beginning with the FBI, the IRS and the EPA.
Maybe 5% may need to be replaced.
The rest we can do without.
We would save a considerable amount of taxes and our freedoms would skyrocket.
This will be done about the same time our first astronauts reach the Andromeda galaxy on their first visit.
How could anyone with the vaguest understanding of 20th century history have believed this ridiculous nonsense?
This is the one thing Scott has been sorely naive about, and many other conservatives and even moderates.
These leftists have built themselves upon the fascist model from propaganda on up.
They will lie, chest, steal and even murder if it furthers the cause with many in the media and government on board,
People better wake up before it's too late.
It is very reminiscent of the Jews who supported Hitler. How'd that work out for them .
They are coming for you eventually, one way or another.
I think it is much more informative to go to:
Check the "about" page on this website. Pretty solid in today's world of media corruption.
Now--give some thought to the fact that immediately after leaving the WH, both of the Clintons went on a "tour"of Viet Nam. Too bad they decided to stop for R&R in the small little out of the way town up in Northern Queensland--you know the place that is a critical point in international drug smuggling! Ahh you don't think those nice people would be involved in anything nasty with the country that owns not only the Golden Triangle of poppy growth, but also the delivery system down the river into the ocean and off to Queensland! What a coincidence!
For pity's sake, why did the deep state conspirators pick Russia? It was ludicrous. How could so many people fall for it?
Yeah, Putin was a MAGA guy for sure. That Putin would support American energy independence and fracking was absurd on it's face, not to mention a robust American economy. support for Poland, support for ME peace........ Trump's policies are the opposite of what would be in the interests of Putin and the oligarchs.
IT might be a shorter list to ask who isn't trying to influence our elections, to the detriment of every day Americans. I don't doubt that trolls from Russia and many other countries, including allies and enemies, are engaged in an ongoing, well financed, effort to influence American elections, and have been for decades. It didn't start in 2016. We all know that this is also true in reverse.
The real question is, to what effect? I don't know. I'd be most inclined to believe that it is just noise, except that it may well be contributing to the disruption by fanning the antagonism between interest groups and undermining any and all bipartisanship. And lest we forget there are other bad actors, such as multinationals, foundations, billionaires etal of the Davos caste that could be provocateurs and instigators via social media.
I never believed a word of it. It reeked of the all too common policy-by-pretext, which is pretty moch SOP in the Washington establishment.
Didn't believe one word of it. FURIOUS that it hasn't been prosecuted, to this point.
Never could understand why any journalist seeking fame wouldn't 'break' with the story. LOL, as I type I realize the answer - they want to LIVE.
My the God of Truth bless this nation with His mercy.
Not I! It was clearly Bo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-GUS!!
I mean, "Democrats".

There's a point in any news Big Story where your own perceptions and awareness starts to conflict with what you are seeing and being told. At that point, one has to choose which path to diverge on to, believing or questioning.
With Nixon, as a teenager I started sensing the divergence coming about a month before he resigned. What was happening on the news just didn't seem to line up with the events that were documented and Nixon's substantial accomplishments up till then, although I didn't articulate it to myself at the time (just a stupid kid)- it just didn't make sense to me and I diverted to thinking that Nixon was probably being set up.
With Trump the divergence happened early on in 2017, when the depth & extent and vitriolic aspect of media bias became crystal clear, when the opposition worker drones started acting out with violence in public, and when a simple coherent strategy became very apparent - that's when I diverted. Pretty much when Sessions recused. I haven't had any second thoughts, and it's starting to look like chickens are now coming home to roost - and be roasted.
I was so appalled at the actions of the Obama administration that when the Democrats came up with the Trump/Russia collusion gambit, I didn't believe it for one second. I saw it as just more Obama dirty tricks, and it turns out I was right.
The twin claims that "Russia" wanted Trump to win and that Trump colluded with them to make it happen never made sense to me. Hillary and the Dems have clearly been more sympathetic to Russian interests than the Repubs - does nobody remember Ted Kennedy reaching out to the Soviet Union or Obama stating that he'll have "more flexibility after the election? Then consider that the Clinton scam was taking money from them.
I recall one friend early in 2017 saying "all I want is to have it investigated" to which I replied "explain why the accusation even makes sense." He never had a coherent response, just faith that the "smart set" thought it worth investigating.
Remember that open mic moment when Obama told Medvedev (and us) that he would be able to work with him after the election? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHmyKksPois
Remember Hillary's deal to help Russia get more Uranium and Russia's donation to the Clinton Foundation?
How does this = Russia having any incentive to hack the election for Trump?
Meanwhile, the "real threat" is imaginary white supremacists.
Seth Rich knew and had evidence that the "data hack" was an inside job.
