A collective yawn about Donald Trump Jr. and Wikileaks

Published

Donald Trump Jr

The liberal media is having a field day with Donald Trump Jr.’s DMs with Wikileaks on Twitter. However Trump Jr. struck back by publicizing the DMs. It is important to note that these DMs were ironically leaked. Many on the left are using this to further the Russian Hoax. However, Wikileaks appears thirsty for Trump’s attention and in no way was this communication equally maintained by both sides. Trump Jr. responded a total of three times despite the numerous messages he received. And ever since, they occasionally sent him messages to which they received no response.

By tweeting this information out, he effectively minimizes the media’s role in hiding the details of the story from the public, while also showing this isn’t a story at all. In fact, this is rather embarrassing for Wikileaks. If there was truly any real collusion going on between Trump and Wikileaks, surely it would have taken place outside of the Twittersphere. Instead all we have are desperate Twitter DMs.

The resistance appears to be celebrating these revelations for two fallacious reasons

  1. They believe the DNC was hacked
  2. They believe Wikileaks is a Russian operative.

If you believe these two things, then of course you would think this is a bombshell, but newsflash, it isn’t. Wikileaks published a lot of dirt leaked from the DNC. The Trumps were simply capitalizing on it.

Perspectives

WikiLeaks sent Twitter DMs to Donald Trump Jr. for 10 months

http://mashable.com/2017/11/13/wikileaks-donald-trump-jr-dms-atlantic/#5X2j3zhzGiq3Trump Jr. might not have responded often (although he did a few times in the beginning), but he tweeted and shared some of what WikiLeaks was feeding him, including a link to the trove of emails that he was sent in a DM from WikiLeaks.

WikiLeaks used very familiar language with Trump Jr. In one DM it wrote, in part, “Hiya, it’d be great if you guys could comment on/push this story.”

And it seems the WikiLeaks info made its way up to Donald Trump occasionally. This tweet was sent 15 minutes after his son got a DM from WikiLeaks in October 2016.

What Don Jr.’s conversations with WikiLeaks prove – CNNPolitics

http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/14/politics/trump-jr-wikileaks-russia/index.htmlOn October 12, WikiLeaks messaged Don Jr. this: “Hey Donald, great to see your dad talking about our publications. Strongly suggest your dad tweet this link if he mentions us” with a link to an archive of its work. Fifteen minutes later — 15 minutes!!! — Donald Trump tweeted this from his account: “Very little pick-up by the dishonest media of incredible information provided by WikiLeaks. So dishonest! Rigged system!”

If that isn’t coordination, I am not sure what is. I suppose you could say it was mere coincidence that Trump tweeted about WikiLeaks 15 minutes after the organization asked his eldest son for him to do just that. But, that would be one hell of a coincidence given the timing of the tweets and the fact that we know from the Atlantic’s reporting that Don Jr. let the senior staff of the campaign know that WikiLeaks had made contact back on September 21.

What these latest revelations do show is that there is even more smoke in an already very smoky situation. Huge amounts of smoke don’t always equal fire. But, they require further investigation into whether or not fire is present. Which is what special counsel Robert Mueller is in the process of doing.

Reactions

Final Thoughts

People are saying that this DMing is criminal, but the rhetoric is just over the top. There is nothing criminal or even noteworthy about Donald Trump Jr. receiving a DM. It assumes the lie that Wikileaks is a Russian front. It’s entirely ironic that liberals are hating Wikileaks considering their favorite “woman” Bradley Manning stole US documents for Wikileaks. This goes to show that Wikileaks is only bad when it’s happening to the your side. This story is a nothingburger and no amount of partisan rhetoric changes that.

Sean Hannity responds incoherently to Roy Moore’s open letter

Sean Hannity responds to Roy Moores open letter

Fox News host Sean Hannity called on Roy Moore to respond to the sexual misconduct allegations that have dominated the news for a week. Moore sent an open letter, which Hannity read on the air Wednesday night. He then responded and essentially said nothing.

It’s not that he didn’t speak words. He spoke many. It’s that Hannity sounded borderline incoherent. The transcript of his response reads like a President Trump off-the-cuff statement.

“The people of Alabama, they need to know the truth, and they’ve got to have all the facts that they need,” he said. “And that means that the Alabama voters can make an educated, informed, inclusive decision for their state when they go to the polls.”

If you just read through it casually or hear it passively, it might sound somewhat normal. Read it more carefully and it’s really not saying much at all. What is an “inclusive” decision?

It got worse:

“And if that means whatever it means to get to the truth, if it means more time, I believe the governor according to Greg Jarrett has the ability to make that decision. The Alabama people deserve that. Greg Jarrett said the governor can delay the race if need be. Now, the people of Alabama deserve to have a fair choice, especially in light of the new allegations tonight.”

Look, I’m not trying to pick on Hannity. This is a tough situation considering he’s backed Moore. But he failed to respond to the substance of Moore’s letter. He made the demand for an open letter, then didn’t discuss it. Instead, he gave a passionate plea for… fairness? Delaying the election? Inclusive decision-making?

Hannity drew a huge audience who wanted to hear him respond to Moore’s letter. Instead, he applied doublespeak to say as little as possible. It was as if this was his exit plan to distance himself from Moore in case more heat comes down, which will likely happen whether the allegations are true or not.

Ben Shapiro on Roy Moore: “Of course he needs to go”

Ben Shapiro on Roy Moore Of course he needs to go

Conservative pundit Ben Shapiro hit Fox News’ “Outnumbered” this morning and spoke out against Alabama’s controversial Senate candidate Roy Moore. He said the allegations seem credible, but more importantly he believes Moore hasn’t done enough to refute the claims.

“Of course he needs to go. He has not provided any explanation as to why the allegations are false.”

‘Of Course He Needs to Go’: Ben Shapiro Slams Roy Moore Over ‘Highly Credible’ Sex Allegations | Fox News Insider

http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/11/15/ben-shapiro-slams-roy-moore-highly-credible-sex-allegationsBen Shapiro said anyone still considering supporting Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore must ask themselves whether they believe someone with child molestation allegations against him should be sitting in the U.S. Senate.

Two women have accused the GOP nominee for Jeff Sessions’ Senate seat of sexually assaulting them when they were underage and he was a district attorney in his thirties back in the 1970s. Moore has denied the allegations, but the stories kept coming last week, including one that he had been banned from a mall for trying to pick up teenage girls.

Gun confiscation bingo

Hey boys and girls, it’s time to play the hottest new game for fun and fabulous prizes.* The lie from the Left has always been “We’re not talking about taking guns away from people”, while they talk about taking guns away from people.  So the trick now its to find one of them who HASN’T demanded gun confiscation by the process of elimination.

The rules are simple – List out the major media outlets of the socialist–Left around the nation in these categories:

  • National political figures of the socialist-left.
  • Major print outlets of the socialist-left.
  • Major media outlets of the socialist-left.
  • National media figures of the socialist left.

Then each player must search and find an instance of a gun confiscation demand by these media outlets or person of note. The two at the top of this piece from ABC news and the Boston Globe are freebies, and the odds are 5 minutes after this is published there will be many more.

Points will be awarded for the type of demand as well as completing a card in a particular category, so there are two ways to win – by points and by category. The one who completes all categories will win the grand prize!*

How Points are Awarded:

  • Five points for each instance of an outright demand for gun confiscation.
  • Four points for each instance of the demand for an offer gun owners can’t refuse‘Australian’ style gun confiscation.
  • Three points for each instance of a demand for the outright banning of guns.
  • Two points for each instance of a demand for the repeal of the 2nd amendment.
    Note: Only one point will be awarded for each instance of a demand for the banning or confiscation of ‘Assault Weapons’ since this happens so often it’s not even sporting to dig them up and there is no real definition of that term.

Bonus points will be awarded for cases of a Leftist media outlet detailing it’s plans to confiscate guns via Intergalactic Background Checks and registration. [Yes, they are out there – extra points for digging them up!]

In some cases we must restrict the total number of points available for certain national print outlets of the socialist-left [e.g. The New York times] given that those outlets come up with new ways of demanding gun confiscation almost on a weekly basis. Please note that with the progression of time, it will be that much easier to win the game – particularly after another “Serious Crisis” brought on be the Left’s insistence on indoctrination in the precepts of cultural Marxism.

So everyone grab your gun.. confiscation bingo cards and start playing, it’s fun for the whole family!
[*no prizes will be awarded – sorry].
