A Political Quiz: The Genius of the Leader of the Republican Party

Raise your hands if you agree with Senator Kennedy that it very well might have been Ukraine that interfered with the 2016 presidential election on behalf of Hillary Clinton and not Russia on behalf of Trump.

Raise your hands if you think it was the Deep State the made up the facts the Russia interfered in the 2016 election and by Deep State I mean all our intelligence agencies who agree that it happened.

Raise your hands if you agree with Senator Kennedy that even though there is no evidence that Ukraine interfered in the election there might be some evidence that it did.

Raise your  hands if you believe that even though there is no evidence that the Moon is made of Cheddar cheese there may be evidence that it is.

Raise your hands if you believe the interference by Trump in the military justice system on behalf of a Navy Seal who was turned in by his fellow sailors because of his actions against civilians and who posed with a dead body of a slain man was in the interests of the nation.

Raise your hands if you agree that we train men to fight and kill in wars so that anything they do including shooting unarmed civilians or burning down the houses of people who are not in combat should not be punished.

Raise your hands if you believe that the mass murder of more than 350 unarmed South Vietnamese civilian men, women and children by U.S. troops in Sơn Tịnh District, South Vietnam, on 16 March 1968 was all right and that no inquiry into it should have occurred and no punishment meted out to those involved.

Raise you hands if you are with Trump in his dispute with ex-NAVSEC Richard Spencer a Marine pilot who wrote: “Unfortunately, it has become apparent that in this respect, I no longer share the same understanding with the Commander in Chief who appointed me, in regards to the key principle of good order and discipline. I cannot in good conscience obey an order that I believe violates the sacred oath I took in the presence of my family, my flag and my faith to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Raise your hands if you believe the witnesses who testified at the impeachment hearing were all part of the Deep State and were out to get Trump with lies and innuendos that were not true.

Raise your hands if you believe that it is all right for members of the government to ignore Congressional subpoenas to testify.

Raise your hands if you believe that requiring South Korea to pay almost five billion dollars, five times the amount it presently pays, is a proper request and not a pretense by Trump to start removing troops from the Korean peninsular in order to curry favor with Kim Jong-un.

Raise you hands if you believe that asking Japan to pay 8 billion dollars to station U.S. troops in its country, five times it is presently paying, is justified or a ruse to remove troops out of Japan to please Kim Jong-un.

Raise your hands if you think rather than protecting the Kurds who have been our allies in the fight against ISIS the United State should be protecting the oil wells.

Raise you hands if you believe those who relied in the past on America coming to their defense if attacked are still are comfortable in that belief after Trump pulled the American troops out of Syria and turned over the American bases to the Russians.

Raise your hands if you thought the American troops were pulled out of Syria and were surprised to learn that there are 600 who have been put back into there..

    24 More Than 80,000 Stolen Guns Worsen Crime in Florida
    October 2, 2018
    Over the past ten years, more than 82,000 guns stolen in Florida remain missing, Laura Morel reported in November 2017 in joint reports for the Tampa Bay Times and the Center for Investigative Journalism’s website, Reveal. The study, based on a ten-month investigation of “thousands of law enforcement records,” found that in Tampa Bay alone at least 9,000 stolen guns have not been recovered. In 2016, on average, at least one gun was reported stolen every hour.
    Those guns turn up in the hands of drug dealers and felons, Morel wrote, and some wind up killing people.
    Experts say the figures likely underestimate the actual number of missing guns, in part because Florida law does not require gun owners to report gun thefts, and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement does not keep track of recovered guns. The Tampa Bay Times/Reveal study found that five law enforcement agencies in the state documented the theft of nearly 11,000 guns between 2014 and 2016. Based on this data, only about one in five guns has been recovered.
    Burglaries of cars—many of which were unlocked—and of gun stores account for the great majority of stolen guns. A Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office detective, Tom Martin, said criminals are not buying guns: “They’re stealing them.” As David Hemenway, a professor of health policy at Harvard whose

    The Pitfalls of a Pit Bull Russophobe

    By Ray McGovern

    November 25, 2019

    Like so many other glib “Russia experts” with access to Establishment media, Fiona Hill, who testified Thursday in the impeachment probe, seems three decades out of date. 
    Fiona Hill’s “Russian-expert” testimony Thursday and her deposition on Oct. 14 to the impeachment inquiry showed that her antennae are acutely tuned to what Russian intelligence services may be up to but, sadly, also displayed a striking naiveté about the machinations of U.S. intelligence.
    Hill’s education on Russia came at the knee of the late Professor Richard Pipes, her Harvard mentor and archdeacon of Russophobia. I do not dispute her sincerity in attributing all manner of evil to what President Ronald Reagan called the “Evil Empire.”  But, like so many other glib “Russia experts” with access to Establishment media, she seems three decades out of date.
    I have been studying the U.S.S.R. and Russia for twice as long as Hill, was chief of CIA’s Soviet Foreign Policy Branch during the 1970s, and watched the “Evil Empire” fall apart.  She seems to have missed the falling apart part.

    Are the Russian intelligence services still very active? Of course. But

    No the Ukrainians did not assassinate President Kennedy


    The Kennedy Autopsy 2
    By Jacob G. Hornberger
    The Future of Freedom Foundation
    November 23, 2019
    Fifty-six years ago today, President John F. Kennedy was shot dead on the streets of Dallas, Texas. The official story is that a lone nut named Lee Harvey Oswald, without any motive, committed the assassination. During the past several decades, however, the overwhelming amount of circumstantial evidence, much of which was intentionally kept secret, points to a national-security regime-change operation to oust Kennedy from office and elevate Vice President Lyndon Johnson to the presidency.
    A key to understanding the assassination lies in a critically important event that occurred after the assassination. That event was the official autopsy that was conducted on the president’s body. By understanding the autopsy, one can gain a better understanding of the assassination itself.
    That was the purpose of my best-selling book several years ago, The Kennedy Autopsy, which was a synopsis of a watershed five-volume assassination book entitled Inside the Assassination Records Review Board by Douglas P. Horne, who was a staff member of the ARRB in the 80’s
    The ARRB was the agency that Congress called into existence to enforce the President John F. Kennedy Records Collection Act of 1992, the law that required the CIA, the Pentagon, the Secret Service, and other federal agencies to disclose assassination-related records that such agencies had insisted on keeping secret since the day of the assassination. The law was enacted in response to the public outcry produced by Oliver Stone’s movie JFK, which posited that the assassination was a national-security regime-change operation carried out by the U.S. national-security establishment. At the end of the movie was a blurb pointing out the national-security establishment’s continued secrecy with respect to its assassination-related records.
    The Future of Freedom Foundation recently published my new book The Kennedy Autopsy 2: Lyndon Johnson’s Role in the Assassination, which builds on the mountain of circumstantial evidence surrounding the president’s autopsy supporting the thesis developed by Oliver Stone in his movie and by Douglas Horne in his five-volume book. Specifically, my new book documents the circumstantial evidence pointing to the role that Lyndon Johnson played in the assassination.
    Now, before anyone cries “Conspiracy theory!” which is the term that the CIA promoted early on to its assets in the mainstream press to dissuade people from questioning the official version of the assassination, consider the following:
    The purpose of an autopsy is to determine the cause of death, which includes a determination of where the bullets were fired from. Since this was a state murder case, Texas law required that an autopsy be conducted on President Kennedy’s body. That duty fell to the Dallas County Medical Examiner, Dr. Earl Rose, who was one of the most competent pathologists in the country.
    As soon as Kennedy was declared dead, however, a Secret Service team had the president’s body placed in an expensive, ornate casket and began taking it out of Parkland Hospital. Rose refused to permit them to do that, standing in their way, and declaring that he was required by state law to conduct an autopsy on the president’s body. In loud, screaming voices, the Secret Service team made it clear to Rose that they were operating under orders to take the body back to Washington without permitting Rose to conduct his autopsy. When Rose continued standing his ground, the Secret Service agents pulled back their suit jackets and brandished their guns. Screaming, yelling, and issuing a stream of profanities, they forced their way out of Parkland Hospital with Kennedy’s body, in direct violation of Texas law.
    Waiting at Love Field was Lyndon Johnson, who was having seats removed from the back of Air Force One to make room for the casket. That meant that he knew that the casket was coming, which is virtually conclu

  4. Gallagher was turned in by his own men! You have to cross your fingers, close your eyes, click your heels, and wish if you think these guys aren’t war criminals. But fear not, I’ve got a bipartisan solution to the whole mess: Withdraw US troops from Afghanistan and the Middle East. As best I can judge, Trump has actually increased the number of US troops in these areas. Can you imagine the howls of rage from the right if Obama had ignored a major, unprovoked attack on Saudi Arabia? And stood by helpelessly when one of our drones was shot down? Don’t get me wrong. I’m glad Trump failed to act. Now he needs to seal the deal by terminating these forever wars.

  5. Both Russia and Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election.

    Matt, you omit salient facts.

    A. Early yesterday on Fox News Chris Wallace Show, Louisiana Republican John Kennedy was asked “Who do you think was responsible for hacking the DNC and Clinton Campaign computers, Russia or Ukraine?”
    Kennedy said in response: “I don’t know. Nor do you. Nor do any of us.”
    Later, the same day, on Chris Cuomo’s show, he corrected himself: “”I was wrong,” Kennedy said. “The only evidence I have, and I think it’s overwhelming, it was Russia who tried to hack the DNC computer. I’ve seen no indication that Ukraine tried to do it.”

    B. In July 2018 Senate Intelligence Committee concluded that Russia interfered in the 2016 election with the primary goals of spreading disinformation and helping Trump. Recently, Congressman Nunes, during the Impeachment Hearing, held up the Congressional Republican-Led Intelligence Subcommittee’s Report on Russian Interference, which concluded similarly that Russia attempted to interfere in the 2016 election by spreading disinformation and favoring Trump. It too concluded Russia spread disinformation and Russia was “pro-Trump.” And I say Russia’s “attempted interference”, because I do not think it’s been demonstrated that Russian efforts changed one vote.

    C. U.S INTERFERENCE IN UKRAINIAN ELECTIONS: Victoria Nuland, Hillary Clinton’s Top Aide in the Obama State Department said, “We spent $5 billion re-orienting the Ukrainians (to the U.S./NATO position.)” Nuland’s efforts were to throw out the pro-Russian Yanakovich. Therefore we, the good old United States, launched an anti-Russian effort in the Ukraine. The corrupt Poroshenko was installed as a result of our efforts.

    D. UKRAINIAN INTERFERENCE in U.S. 2016 election: (1) In August 2016, three months before the election, the Ukrainian Ambassador to the United States published an op-ed in ‘The Hill” denouncing Candidate Trump. No doubt, the Ambassador’s Op-Ed was green-lighted by the Ukrainian Government. (2) In August 2016, three months before the election, Ukrainian Authorities leaked a “Black Ledger” to the press that purportedly showed millions in cash payments to Trump’s campaign manager Paul Manafort, even though evidence showed that all Manafort’s payments were “wire transfers.” The authenticity of that Black Ledger has never been verified; it was not used in the trial of Manafort for tax-evasion (decade-old claims) or failure to register as a lobbyist. Ukraine’s release of that Black Ledger forced Manafort’s resignation from Trump’s campaign. (3) In July 2016, Arsen Avakov, Ukrainian Interior Minister, took to social media to write that Republican Candidate Trump was a “clown” and was “an even bigger danger to the U.S. than terrorism.” On Facebook, Avakov wrote, “The shameless statement of U.S. presidential candidate Trump on the possible recognition of Crimea as Russia is a diagnosis of a dangerous outcast … He is dangerous both for Ukraine and the U.S., to the same extent. An outcast bowing down to Putin’s dictatorship cannot be the guarantor of democratic freedoms in the U.S. and the world.”

    Despite these several glaring anti-Trump efforts by Ukrainian Officials in July and August 2016, the leftist press says “no evidence” of Ukraine interfering in the 2016 election.

    There’s more: A POLITICO article, January 11, 2017:”UKRAINIAN EFFORTS TO SABOTAGE TRUMP BACKFIRE: Kiev officials are scrambling to make amends with the president-elect after quietly working to boost Clinton.”

    As part of that Politico report, the role of the DNC operative Alexandra Chalupa is detailed: “Andrii Telizhenko, who worked as a political officer in the Ukrainian Embassy, said he was instructed “to help Chalupa research connections between Trump, Manafort and Russia.” And “They (Embassy Officials) were coordinating an investigation with the Hillary team on Paul Manafort with Alexandra Chalupa,” “ keeping it all quiet,” but “the embassy worked very closely with” Chalupa.”


    1. I am glad President Trump pardoned the Army Officers and restored Navy Seal Gallagher’s rank and allowed him to keep his Navy Seal Insignia. The Secretary of the Department of Defense apparently agrees.
