There is much wailing and gnashing of teeth regarding possible collusion between U.S. officials and the Russian government. Let’s play a little game with some of the most egregious examples, shall we? Every time I show evidence of collusion by Trump with Russia take a shot of vodka.
Discussing a missile defense treaty with the Russian President – ” I need more space………….this is my last election….(tell Vlad)….after my election I have more flexibility. …” – B.H. Obama at the White House in 2012 during a meeting with the Russian president recorded accidentally on a “hot mic”.
During Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State in 2010, Bill Clinton spoke in Moscow to the “Renaissance Group”, an entity linked to Russian Intelligence, for 500K…..that’s half a million dollars for those with a Gender Studies degree.
In 2010, The Clinton Foundation received $145 million dollars from 9 people who were shareholders in a uranium ( the stuff you make nukes with ) company called “Uranium One”…….and “Uranium One” is owned by the Russian Government. The money had to be approved by U.S. government agencies…….namely the State Department run by Hillary Clinton. As a result of the deal, Russia’s State Nuclear Agency ended up purchasing 20% of America’s weapons-grade uranium. I guess if we get nuked by Russia, at least some of the bombs will have “made in America” stamped somewhere inside them.
In 2011, again during the active tenure of Clinton as Secretary of State, Hillary’s chief aide and crony John Podesta joined the board of an energy company called “Joule Unlimited”. Two short months later the Russian government invested a billion Rubles into “Joule Unlimited”, greatly benefitting Podesta. When in 2014 Podesta joined Obama’s White House as Counselor he failed to disclose his involvement and investment in “Joule Unlimited”, and subsequently transferred his 75,000 shares to a family owned LLC.
Again during Hillary’s “public service” for the Obama administration, other questionable individuals gave money to the Clinton Foundation…….like Viktor Vekselberg – a Putin confidante – that gave cash through his Russian company, Renova Group…….or Elena Baturin, wife of the former Mayor of Moscow, who gave money through the Russian company she controls, JSC Inteco……..or ex-Russian government official Andrey Vavilov, Chairman of SuperOx – a company that does nuclear research for the Russian government. I wonder what their money paid for, don’t you? Especially since Hillary’s failed bid to be president the Clinton Foundations donations have completely dried up. I mean really, why continue to pay when your dupe couldn’t close the deal?
It didn’t require more than an hour of research to find what, in my opinion, is evidence of collusion and pay-for-play schemes undertaken by U.S. officials ( and I excluded members of Congress because otherwise this column would be never-ending – I’m talking to you Cryin’ Chuck Schumer ), either directly or through “foundations”,working hand in hand with the Russians and/or those connected to their government. For the purpose of keeping to the topic, I left out many other incidents of scandal and corruption by the previous administration……..you know, Benghazi……Ghaddafi’s assassination, the pathetic Cairo speech, killing ( by drone-strike ) several American citizens without due process, spying on the Trump campaign under false premises, jailing a filmmaker to present the Susan Rice/Obama/Clinton lie of a video being responsible for Benghazi, ignoring Russia’s advances into Syria and the Crimea, spying on reporter James Rosen and his family for unflattering reporting, having an ethically challenged Secretary of State that has an illegal private server that spilled thousands of classified documents, sending palates full of cash to Iran, trading multiple terrorists for the deserter Bowe Bergdahl, subverting congress for a defacto treaty with Iran that will end with them armed with nukes………….and so on, and so on, and so on. Yet over 18 months into over five “investigations” into Trump’s supposed collusion with Russia……..and there’s nothing. Zilch. Nada. Goose-egg. 1 minus 1.
My question is this: What happens when two years pass and it hasn’t stopped, and nothing on the domestic front – like tax reform, passing and meeting a budget, reforming immigration, fixing the disastrous Obamacare, addressing Islam and it’s terror – has been done? Whom will you blame?
I said in the beginning that we’d take a shot of vodka every time I found Trump’s “collusion”………..and we’re still sober. Let’s change it to taking a shot every time the Media lies……..then we’ll be drunk in a few minutes, or dead from alcohol poisoning.
