Dear Producers,On the Sunday show there is a lot to discuss. The weirdest item that keeps cropping up, as far as I am concerned, is the insistence by the Republican Partythat Russians hacked the US elections. This is at odds with Trump himself according to this article and others.
"It only takes this much to get quoted in the Times. And it keeps me out of prison."
The argument by the Republicans is pretty much saying that they are illegitimate. They are saying that Hillary should be President and the House and Senate should be in the hands of the Democrats. That is exactly what this amount to.
Even Paul Ryan, who discussed this on the Sean Hannity show recently, was on board with this.
It is obvious and makes sense that the arms makers and its cheerleaders like Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham seriously want to keep tensions high regarding Russia and its so-called expansionism (expansion to where?) so the defense industry can make billions. OK. But why are the rest of the Republicans buying this? Are they that stupid?
By claiming the Russians rigged the elections to get Trump and other Republicans elected, the entire party will be under intense scrutiny and be considered corrupt for the remainder of Trump’s first term. This means protests and more. The #notmypresident moniker will remain in place. And when you ask a radical about this they can point to the Republicans and say they agree.
I have never seen anything like this. Your No Agenda Show has deconstructed these cyber attacks to an extreme and find zero evidence that the Russians did anything of the sort. For one thing, they’d want the war-mongers Graham and McCain voted out. How come that did not happen?
This is actually the final Republican revolt against Trump. Only there is a smile on their collective faces as they think this Russian ploy is a good idea and will somehow weaken him.
Trump should pull a Bernie and drop his party affiliation immediately. He should resign the Republican Party, cite its siding with the Democrats on this Russian issue. Besides, everyone keeps saying he isn’t a Republican anyway.
I was amused by a recent Brooks and Shields jumping all over Trump for his even talking to the Steel Workers Union head, as “beneath him.” It’s something to be discussed on the show tomorrow for reasons you’ll hear in full.
No other show except No Agenda discusses this. Have you contributed recently? Do you want to keep the show going? Click here and help. Everything helps.
