Russia “hacked the election” for Trump? What does that even mean?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

So the new talking point by the mainstream media is that Russia “hacked the election” to make sure Trump won.

There’s no allegation that the voting machines were hacked — and if there were, the recounts proved that false.

No, by "hacking," some people mean those damning Democratic Party e-mails from Wikileaks, but there is no evidence that Russia or anyone else leaked those e-mails. Julian Assange of Wikileaks says the real source was a disgusted Democratic insider disgusted.

So is that all they mean by “hacking” — that we were accidentally allowed to see the real Hillary Clinton?

Until about five minutes ago, the Democrats and the media loved Putin and Russia. Remember when Obama mocked Mitt Romney for saying Vladimir Putin was a threat?

Look, I’m no fan of Putin. I like the fact that he takes on Islamic State terrorists, but that’s it.

But no, Russia didn’t “hack the election.”

That doesn’t even make sense in English.

I don’t think those gossipy WikiLeaks emails turned Michigan, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Ohio and Florida for Trump. I think those veters want jobs, and a leader who will stand up for America.

And you know what else?

It's not scientifically possible for Trump to be more submissive to Putin than Clinton and Obama have been already.

Tonight's guests and I talk about job-killing carbon taxes:

Who ever it was who hacked Hillary showed damning evidence that Hillary is a crook. All this stink about Russia influencing the election is crap. We already knew Hillary was a crook. There is zero evidence to pin it on anyone. What part of who is responsible, changes the fact that Hillary is a crook OR that Trump won and Hillary lost?

They want us to change our behaviour, but have you seen a list of things they’d like us to do? Some suggestions? Other than “take transit” or “car-pool”, which are realistic for only a tiny fraction of ppl? Of course not, because they have no clue what to do. Oh yes, add some insulation in your attic. Riiiiight, that’ll help my bill for car gas and road tolls!

Bill, did you mean, disemboweled? Or do they mean the same?

Russia “hacked the election” is equivalent to “the dog ate my breakfast”. Why in the world would Russia attempt to prevent the election of a left-wing Democrat?

The funny thing is the Dems and Hillary had a 100% foolproof, unassailable, un-hackable option: don’t do anything corrupt or embarrassing and especially don’t do anything corrupt or embarrassing then write emails about it. Instead of looking at these obvious failings they want to talk about the conspiracies that brought them to the fore.

The lesson I’ve gleaned from this whole election cycle, and particularly the post election subterfuge, is that the hard left dominates the Dem party and policy, and the hard left is totally unwilling to co-exist with anyone who does not subscribe to their fanatic agenda. Everything is on the table where getting and keeping power is concerned with these venal subverters. It should be scorched earth with these fanatics from here on until they are disempowered.

This transition better be smooth or there’s gonna be hell to pay. They obviously weren’t prepared except for the fema camps and stocks of artillery.

Looks like history repeating itself.The Nazi’s needed an enemy of the state to blame ,a scapegoat to pin all the troubles on. Now 80 years later the the U.S. needs Russia to be the enemy of the state to be the scapegoat for the same reasons. But a lot of people are not buying it….
