Defending the right to rant!


Conservative Commentary

Collusion Confusion
Vladimir Putin caught off guard by President Trump?Being a KGB-trained stone-waller, Russian president Vladimir Putin naturally strives to be stoic and underreactve when answering questions -- especially western media reporters' queries.  Such was the case as Putin was questioned regarding Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 US presidential election and what was said about it during his closed-door conversation with Donald Trump at last week's G20 summit in Hamburg.  Trump (unexpectedly?) confronted Putin on the subject of election meddling which, by all accounts, was flatly denied by Putin.

UN Ambassador Nikki HaleyLater, during a Sunday interview, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley stated emphatically that Russian President Vladimir Putin tried to "save face" by denying to President Trump that his country had meddled in the 2016 election.  But "everybody knows that isn't true," she added. 

I would have expected Putin to take a completely different tack during the historic sit-down with Trump, so it appears that the Russian leader was actually rattled by President Trump's point blank confrontation.  Otherwise, the conversation would probably have sounded something like this...

TRUMP:  "Tell the truth, Vladimir. Did you meddle in our election?"
PUTIN:  "Can you give me an actual example of what you mean, Donald?  Your opposition party and the American propaganda machine are yet to do so despite their perpetual claim that we somehow interfered."

Clearly, Putin missed a golden opportunity to turn the tables and so he remains suspect, enabling the leftist media to continue blaming Russia for sabotaging poor Hillary and to continue bashing Trump for his collusion with them.

Democrats and the leftist media were the only winners in this particular exchange, which was unnecessarily validated by Nikki Haley's ill-conceived comment.  Ambassador Haley totally blew the opportunity to be a helpful surrogate for her media-embattled boss by echoing the mainstream media's non-stop "Everybody Knows" talking point.  Going forward, her comments to the media and fellow ambassadors need to be more measured, better directed and monitored.

Nikki Haley's narrative should have begun and ended with the provable statement that Trump bravely confronted Putin regarding Russian election meddling which would have strengthened the administration's position that "collusion with Russia" is a concoction of sore-loser Democrats in an effort to discredit their hated nemesis -- who continues beating them fair and square at every turn.

And while the left continues to bash Trump and his inadequacy -- even by comparison with bumbling liars like Barack and Hillary -- the most experienced, powerful and competitive world leader feels quite differently about our president.

"Trump's TV persona differs sharply from the real man. He is a very straightforward person, grasps precisely what his interlocutor says, quickly analyzes and responds to questions or new elements of the discussion." - Vladimir Putin

Of course, the fake news media will make this unsolicited comment of Putin's out to be the result of a Don-Vlad "bromance" and will cite it as proof that their collusion message has always been based in reality. 

It is quite obvious that both Putin and Trump know that..."You You should keep your friends close but your enemies closer.should keep your friends close but your enemies closer."

Dang, those Russkies are everywhere.  While trimming the hedges I flushed out three spies and I think they found a way to get into my attic.  Apparently they were chewing on the ethernet cable running to my bathroom mail server.  I called “Russian Ridders” and they quickly cleaned out the infestation.  It’s been a week now and I haven’t found any new empty vodka bottles in the yard.  I highly recommend the company.
But seriously, I'm burned out on all the Russian stories and don’t care anymore.  There’s a special prosecutor investigating this whole thing.  I’ll sit back for the next three or four years and wait for his report.
