RussiaGate: Six Months. No Evidence -- It's Time for the Media to Put Up or Shut Up
Let me start with an admission that might surprise you. With respect to RussiaGate, I actually thought the national media would find a little something by now. Don't get too excited; never for a moment did I believe Trump was a Russian agent or in any way involved with the beautifully-beautiful WikiLeaks release of all those luscious Democrat emails. It is just that when you see the MSM engaging in one of their coordinated, partisan frenzies, they usually come up with … something. So I just assumed that somewhere along the line some low-level Trump-staffer might be caught doing or saying something wrong on one of those Obama wiretaps.
So after six silly months of this pathetic witch hunt, I am now willing to express something our corrupt media never will…
I was wrong.
So wrong, in fact, that the media has not only found less than nothing, what has been found is a Team Trump behaving responsibly and appropriately in their dealings with Russian officials.
Best of all, the only real scandal that appears to have been uncovered involves highly-inappropriate Obama Administration surveillance of a political rival, felonious leaks from an out-of-control intelligence community, and an extra-legal federal bureaucracy.
This is actually a YUGE GIFT for Trump because of how it perfectly plays into the hands of a White House on a righteous crusade to finally dismantle the un-American and unaccountable administrative state, a fascist bureaucracy that festers in every dark corner of the federal government.
How dried up is RussiaGate?
So dried up, here are today's top stories….
1) Bombshell: Way back in 2008, during what was probably the height of the real estate boom before the crash, Trump sold a Palm Beach mansion to a Russian oligarch for a huge profit. Naturally, only in the last two paragraphs do we learn that the $95 million sale was $30 million below the original asking price.
3) CNN reheating a leftover that downgrades RussiaGate from TREASON! to merely … odd; a story that finally reveals this after seven paragraphs of melodrama: "there are no specific allegations of wrongdoing and only vague technical evidence."
After six months of what we used to call McCarthyism -- public trial by innuendo, smears, outright lies, and CNN's creepy Fake News fetish -- all the national media has found is EXACTLY ZERO. After a half-year of 24/7 delirium, all they have to show for their fever dream is two guys named Jack and Squat sitting in the Zilch Café eating a Nothingburger with a side-order of Shutout that was overcooked by a fella named Bupkis and served by a waitress named Zilch.
As I revealed yesterday, in just two days, two lonely reporters and a single source had already connected the Watergate break-in to President Nixon's re-election campaign. By the time six months had passed, two Nixon officials had already been indicted, tried, and convicted!
So isn't it time to ask the following question of our Keystone Cop Media….
At what point do those few words we usually find hidden below a hysterically dishonest headline and 14 paragraphs of innuendo become The Story; at what point do those words that read "Government officials stress that there is no evidence of any wrongdoing" become The Headline…?
At what point do we demand our mainstream media put up or shut up?
I think that point has arrived.
I think six months is MORE than enough time to uncover what is known as a shred of evidence.
These Witch Hunters have had a full half-year, billions of dollars in media resources, hundreds of reporters, actual wiretaps, and countless illegal leaks at their disposal -- and there is still no evidence of anything resembling a witch.
Where is she, Mainstream Media? Where the hell is your witch? Because the bottom line to your un-American hunt thus far is this, "Government officials stress that there is no evidence of any wrongdoing."
Enough with the innuendo and your manufactured appearance of impropriety.
Either put up or shut up.
