They're worried that the whole world will recognize them as the stab-America-in-the-Back traitors worse than Benedict Arnold's wildest dreams we know they are.

I mean, they literally are that, they just want to pretend to be Patriots a while longer.

My guess? There are more Russian owned congress critters apart from Rohrabacher.

Like a lot more.

It would explain all the counter intuitive, obviously bad for the country shiat that the GOP congress has been trying to do since 2010

And there's a greater than zero chance that one of the unsealed Mueller indictments is the former head of the RNC, a guy that could bring down a lot of people.

So, has Fark completely given up on even being a semblance of a news discussion site? It used to be "It's not News", then it was "Real News, Real Funny" now it's just inane Tweets with literally zero content to them. Good for racking up the submitted headline count for someone but let's be honest, this 20 word submission is beyond pathetic. FFS, I'm seriously considering writing a FireFox extension that deletes headlines that have Twitter as a source. The Politics tab is more of a disaster these days than it was even during the presidential elections of yore.

It is crazy how many Cold Warriors seemingly got recruited by Russia. Most of them don't even seem very expensive, just five and six figure payouts.

That the most powerful ones among them are complicit, including Pence.

Why the fark else would they? You don't really think they give a shiat about the farkface in Chief, do you?

I think they'd love to have President Pence. Younger, less embarrassing, happy to play ball, a poor-hating motherfarker just like the rest of them. Good for two terms if they could get rid of farkface without endangering anyone else.

If only they'd spent more time keeping the nutjob wing of the Republican party from selecting their candidate than they did keeping the uppity people from voting Democratic.

The Democrats need to start assuming this is coming and countering it right now.

Crowd sourcing ideas for the most effective way to spend resources to prevent. A fundraising machine, devoted to preventing tyranny by the majority. Advertisements all over National TV. Grass roots organization. A tangible plan people who care about our country and the constitution

there's a followup story to this that's in the greenlit queue discussing the ways in which Putin used proxies to fund GOPers outside of Trump.
 
2017-12-15 07:07:49 PM  
Yeah, the answer is "prison". Gowdy, Nunes, McConnell, Ryan, obviously Rohrabacher.

Frankly, I doubt Russia is the biggest thing. I think most of them are afraid of other things coming out in the wash. Lots of other things . . . but massive election fraud and corruption (bribes, fraud, insider trading and the like) are probably the main two.

To be fair, I'm sure a smaller but significant percentage of Dems would go down, too. But so it goes. We've got to investigate treason, and the chips fall where they may. It would produce some rough times, but not rougher than the anal raping the GOP is giving the country anyway.

It's preferable to me to the "days of yore" in which we'd occasionally have to see some nonsense from some schmendrick's three-day-old Blogspot account under the guise of commentary.

On Aug. 9, 1974, Richard Nixon bowed to the inevitability of impeachment and conviction by a Democratic Senate and resigned. The prospect of such an end for Donald Trump has NYC drooling. Yet, comparing Russiagate and Watergate, history is not likely to repeat itself. First, the underlying crime in Watergate, a break-in to wiretap offices of the DNC, had been traced, within 48 hours, to the Committee to Re-Elect the President. In Russiagate, the underlying crime - the "collusion" of Trump's campaign with the Kremlin to hack into the emails of the DNC - has, after 18 months of investigating, still not been established.

Time to pull the plug guys.

Makes perfect sense. If the pile of evidence is so big it takes 18 months(or you know, 9 months since the Mueller investigation started) to go through, than there must be nothing there.

Sealing the indictments and keeping them that way is a stroke of genius. It's getting the work in and setting it loose, but not in a way that triggers opposition.

Half the fun is watching my fellow Farkers ripping those bad ideas apart. Extemporaneous vomit from some nitwit's Twitter account is below me. I may as well just scroll through my Facebook feed. Yes, the adblock on Twitter links starts now.
