I should really learn how to adjust the settings on my stupid smartphone, but who has time for that? It sends me these little notices all day long of updates from Google’s “most trusted” news sources like CNN and Jeff Bezos’s blog, the Washington Post.
Since Google spies on everything that we do, it knows that I’m kind of a news junkie. So, my phone screen gets these, “We thought you’d be interested in this!” notices all day long. And the articles always have these useful and totally true headlines, such as:
- If This Is True, Donald Trump, Jr. Could Face Death by Firing Squad
- Noted Free Speech Champion Stormy Daniels Says Trump ‘Obviously’ Colluded
- Buzzfeed Exclusive: Treason! Walls Closing in on Trump
These notices are annoying, but they’re a nice reminder of what the enemies of America are up to on a regular basis. A funny thing happened the day after the Mueller report dropped, though.
All day long, the only news update that my phone sent me was a report that Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) was not going to seek reelection in 2020. Weird! It’s almost like the underlying subtext was, “The news is SO BORING today that you probably shouldn’t even turn your television on!”
Two days after the Mueller report, the updates were all about Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats’ plans to save Obamacare. That went on all day long. It was a festival of Obamacare. The Democrats want to save your health insurance, while the Republicans want to take away your health insurance, read the updates. Which is hilarious, because I haven’t been able to afford health insurance for my family since Obamacare “officially” went into effect back in 2016.
Google’s algorithms must have something wrong with them because there is one story that I’m actually interested in hearing about right now – and it has nothing to do with Tom Udall or Obamacare.
The absence of Russian collusion updates is taking a noticeable toll on the fake news media. CNN’s viewership had tanked by 30% the first day after the Mueller report completely and totally exonerated Donald Trump and the Trump campaign of colluding with Russia.
By the time the Russian Collusion Fun-Time Hour with Anderson Cooper was on the air Monday night, CNN’s audience had been carved in half. Cooper normally draws about a million viewers, but it was in the 500,000 range one day after the Mueller report.
Collusion Queen Rachel Maddow has enjoyed sky-high ratings because of her Russian conspiracy theory rants. She’s been barely trailing the stellar Tucker Carlson Tonight program on Fox News for two years. But once the Russian collusion jig was up, her audience evaporated like the Jussie Smollett charging documents. Gone!
By Wednesday of my new favorite national holiday – No Russian Collusion Week – Fox News’ viewership numbers were more than CNN and MSNBC’s numbers combined. That’s actually never happened before in the history of Fox News, and it gives us a good indication of just how angry the American people are at the fake news media right now. (Or, Democrat viewers are in such shock that they can’t even turn on their televisions right now.)
I keep coming back to something that former House Intel Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) has been saying. He’s said it a bunch of times, “The Obama administration started surveillance of the Trump campaign back in 2015.” At this point, everything that Devin Nunes has said has turned out to be true, and everything that the fake news media and the Democrats have said has turned out to be false.
We have every reason to believe that Nunes is telling us the truth – and I’m firmly convinced that he’s hinting at a broader conspiracy. No one is catching the obvious implication of Nunes’ statement. Both Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rand Paul (R-KY) have hinted at it, but they haven’t come right out and said it.
The official Deep State narrative is that the FBI started spying on Trump in July of 2016. There’s a reason why they chose that date – Trump had secured the GOP nomination by then.
Nunes is very careful about his wording. He doesn’t say Trump was being surveilled because the FBI thought the campaign had been infiltrated by Russia. In 2015, the Trump campaign staff consisted of Trump, Steve Bannon and Hope Hicks! No Russians there.
Let’s look at it another way: If Barack Obama was using intelligence agencies to spy on the Trump campaign in 2016, who else was he spying on? Are we supposed to believe they weren’t spying on any other GOP candidates? Obama and Hillary couldn’t possibly have guessed that Trump would win the nomination in December of 2015. By December 2015 there had only been 4 debates and 2 candidate forums (both of which Trump skipped), and there were 16 candidates.
Obama was illegally spying on all of the Republican candidates to help Hillary Clinton. That’s the only way Nunes’ allegation makes sense. They zeroed in on Donald Trump and launched Crossfire Hurricane when it became clear that he would be the nominee. Some of us believed that Trump would win the nomination back in June of 2015 when he delivered his now infamous speech at Trump Tower. But those of us who believed back then were in the minority.
Republicans had a deep bench in 2016. Scott Walker, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina, Marco Rubio… and remember, Jeb! had a $250 million war-chest walking into the race and everyone thought he was the frontrunner. Obama didn’t pick Trump’s name out of a hat to spy on him – and only him – back in 2015. He illegally spied on all of the Republican candidates, and he used your tax dollars and American intelligence agencies to do it.
Remember when Obama had to apologize to Angela Merkel of Germany when he was caught tapping her cell phone? He spied on everyone for political advantage. He needed Hillary to win in 2016 to prop up his phony legacy. All the Russian collusion roads lead back to Crooked Hillary and Obama. That’s the next piece of evidence we’re going to see.
Oh, wait, my phone just sent me an important update. CNN has compiled the definitive list of houseplants that it’s safe to have around my pets. Breaking News!
