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.

Arizona Republic endorses Democrat (again) because the Republican was mean (again)

Arizona Republic endorses Democrat again because the Republican was mean again

Mainstream media, or should we say “meanstream media,” has been in the process of lurching to the left for a while. Even Fox News, while backing the President, often rails against conservatives while embracing moderate Republicans who practice Democratic orthodoxy. That’s not everyone at Fox News, but some prominent show hosts really love to align in the center.

The Arizona Republic, which was counted on for a while to lean right during elections, made a shift in 2016 by endorsing Hillary Clinton. Now, they’re going to the left of Clinton by endorsing far-left Democratic Socialist Kyrsten Sinema. Her 9% Liberty Score makes her by far the biggest leftist in the state. Now the Arizona Republic wants her to be their next Senator.

It isn’t just her voting record. Her ideas are extremely dangerous for America and particularly a southern border state like Arizona:

Kyrsten Sinema’s dangerous ideas do not belong in the Senate

http://noqreport.com/2018/10/12/kyrsten-sinemas-dangerous-ideas-not-belong-senate/There’s a very distinct difference between defense of personal freedoms, a conservative staple, and desiring no repercussions for people who intend to kill Americans. As with many far-left activists, they don’t care about the lives of others if they don’t agree wholeheartedly with their worldviews.

This wasn’t the only statement getting Sinema into hot water with voters.

The paper’s endorsement of Clinton in 2016 can be chalked up to the Trump effect that hit many conservatives in their funny bone. It should be noted that I didn’t endorse nor vote for Trump, but I definitely didn’t endorse or vote for Clinton. My write in vote wasn’t even running. Oh, if only Thomas Sowell had stepped away from academia to lead the country for eight years, but I digress.

When the paper goes for two leftists in a row, we can call it a trend. With Sinema in particular, there needed to be a tremendous excuse that allowed the editorial board to abandon any sense of conservatism and embrace the far-left socialist values she has espoused her entire adult life.

Nope. Their excuse is as weak as anyone could possibly imagine:

Arizona newspaper backs Democrat in dead heat Senate race

https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/412432-the-arizona-republic-backs-sinema-in-dead-heat-senate-raceRather than pointing to particular policy positions in the endorsement, the editorial board pointed to how the candidates have handled themselves during the race.

“We need to get back to a saner time, when senators didn’t call each other names — or if they did, they could put it all aside after the vote and go get a beer together,” the paper’s editorial board wrote. “There is too much ‘us and them’ in D.C., and it hurts how we are governed.”

“The real Martha McSally and Kyrsten Sinema know that,” the board argued. “But Sinema is the only one willing to say it (repeatedly) from behind her mask.”

The editorial board argued that McSally has gone further than Sinema in attacks on her opponent.

The paper tries to justify their decision by claiming McSally is center-right (which she is) and Sinema is center-left (which she is not). One needs only to look at her 9% Liberty Score to realize she’s the most radical representative in Arizona. It’s not even close.

Thomas Sowell nails the fact versus feelings problem

There are many reasons why Thomas Sowell is my favorite conservative thinker. This ideas resonate so clearly with the right mindset. His arguments are practically irrefutable.

This particular quote from whoever runs his Twitter account rings so true today. Mainstream media’s programming has affected both the left and the right, but this component of their onslaught on leftist sensibilities is arguably the biggest problem with the progressive movement today.

Hilarious video Bombshell the beginning of the end walls closing in the tipping point

Most leftists remember it like a previous generation remembers when they heard JFK was killed. It was the moment they realized Donald Trump would become President of the United States. Since then, mainstream media has been incessant in their proclamations that his days are numbered.

Perhaps it’s comforting to them to continuously hear about how the latest bombshell means it’s the beginning of the end because the walls are closing in on a presidency that has reached a tipping point. Or something.
