See, here in America, we have a problem with Republicans being willing to accept Russian meddling if that means they maintain power. Other countries do not have that problem. Mueller releasing his findings will be fun, but what I'm really waiting for is for countries like France and the UK to release theirs.

Russia is part of the deep state and is working with the FBI to appear to be on Trumps side so it looks like they are with Trump but the they are really with Klinton to take down the Tal Shiar in the Beta Quadrent because the Lizard People don't want a wall because they ate all the RINOS and replaced them with Cylons.

Oh, and the fact FBI agents said it was a bad look for them to just happen to fix a broken FBI Twitter account to release documents about an investigation into Clinton (where he was cleared of all charges, but that isn't in the tweet) a week before the election probes how corrupt the FBI is in favor of Clinton or some such:

I love how we're at the point where blaming the Illuminati is a talking point for hand waving Trump's failure as a president.

Could it be because they elected a highly divisive, unpredictable, know-nothing with long history of business failures. . .? Nope! There's a vast organized conspiracy to undermine him. It's the only explanation!

Latest polling has him 45/51% approval/disapproval (Politico/Morning Consult). Either economic stuff or the Memo is improving his popularity massively over the last month.
 
2018-02-07 02:14:13 PM  
The idea that Trump supporters had to be "duped" into voting for him is one of the great political fictions of the last 50 years. It's a fairy tale both liberals and establishment conservatives have to tell themselves in order to sleep at night. The Trump cult are active, proud participants in Russia's information war. They always have been.

None of this is to say that it's not a bad thing or shouldn't be stopped. But if you're looking for Trump supporters to have a Lieutenant Colonel Nicholson moment after this all shakes out, you're going to be sorely disappointed. They're getting exactly what they voted for.

Iowan73: What is "Obamagate?" Just his general existence?


Well, according to a number of websites that are so credible I don't even need to provide citations, "bamah" or "U-bamah" in Hebrew is the word for "heights" or "the high place." It is clear that Obama's name is actually a biblical reference to Lucifer, whose primary offense was his hubris for wanting to be like "the most high." Given Obama's well documented arrogance in doing things like existing and running for president while not really being from America, (a complaint which has totally nothing whatsoever to do with race and you're the real racist for thinking it does,) it is not that much of a stretch to see that Obama wants to identify with Satan figuratively, if not literally.

With Obama = Satan established, it naturally flows that "ObamaGate" refers to the Gates of Hell, Satan/Obama's domain and prison. The gates were described in literature by Dante, but the most famous visual representation of the Gates of Hell is the large eponymous sculpture by Auguste Rodin:

upload.wikimedia.orgView Full Size


Now, interestingly enough, the reproduction rights to this sculpture are owned by the French government, so a large number of full-size reproductions are on display at museums all around the world. However, the French government has never approved the sale of plastic consumer versions of the sculpture, something that home decor companies have been furious about for decades, which brings us to the actual conspiracy: Barack Obama, sensing an untapped market and wanting to flaunt his allegiance with Satan in the face of gullible Americans, ordered a large shipment of bootleg 1/40th size reproductions of the Gates of Hell, and then used the military to smuggle them into Texas Walmarts during the Jade Helm exercises.

The figurines sold prolifically, and now Obama has a much larger fortune that anyone realized, ready to be used for his own nefarious purposes. Probably getting kids to reject Jesus or something.

I hope that clears things up for you.

I'm not sure I understand you. Brexit worked a few months before the US election, but it seems like they haven't had a lot of successes since then.
