The New Red Scare: Democrats in Total Meltdown


             There is a new Red Scare in America.  Only it is our Reds, as in the Democrats, promoting it. The Democrat-Reds see Russians everywhere. In your closet and under your bed.  In the White House and the halls of Congress.  Speaking with a Russian is now a crime.  Today’s Democrat McCarthyites are seeking the scalp of Jeff Sessions, former Republican Senator and newly confirmed Attorney General.  He was caught talking with a Russian.  The Democrat-Reds already scalped General Mike Flynn, former National Security Advisor, also caught talking with a Russian.  Beware the Russians.

            The Democrats are peddling the myth that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton in the Presidential election.  It wasn’t that Hillary was a terrible candidate or that the country had had enough of President Obama’s failed policies.  No, it was the Russians.  What is odd is that Democrats have always loved the Russians, especially when they were part of the Soviet Union.  They share a common ideologic bond.  They are all Communists. 

            The Democrats did everything in their power to stop President Ronald Reagan from bringing down the old Soviet Union in the 80’s.  Then they were rooting for the Russians.  Senator Ted Kennedy actively sought Moscow’s aid in defeating Ronald Reagan in the 1984 election.  Hillary Clinton embarrassed herself with her “Reset button” gaffe, but still conveyed her wish to improve relations with Russia.  Obama promised Russian President Dmitri Medvedev that he would be more “flexible” on missile defense after the 2012 election.  Hillary signed off on the sale of 20% of US uranium to Russia in exchange for donations of $2.3 million to the Clinton Foundation.  Democrats have had a long, passionate love affair with the Russians.  Until now.

            Democrats are hysterically claiming that Russian hacking of their emails was a crucial factor in Trump’s historic victory in 2016.  They’re not even claiming the Russians hacked election machines, only the DNC.  But the hacked emails didn’t move a vote.  They served only to expose what we already knew about the Democrats, which is that they are hypocrites and haters.  We learned, for example, that Hillary despises “everyday Americans,” including Catholics and Evangelicals.  She took questions before a debate, wanted open borders, and received huge contributions from ISIS supporting Arab states.  Oh, and that Hillary forces in the DNC nixed Bernie Sanders in the primary.  But there is no evidence of collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign.

            Jeff Sessions spoke twice with the Russian ambassador in 2016 in his role as a Senator.  He did not disclose this during confirmation hearings for Attorney General because Senator Al Franken intentionally phrased his question about Sessions’ role as a Trump campaign surrogate.  Senators meet with ambassadors all the time.  A group of seven Democrat Senators met with the Russian ambassador in 2013. The Russian ambassador visited the Obama White House 22 times.  But now, meeting with a Russian is a crime.

            Here are the real questions.  Why was Jeff Sessions being monitored?  Where did the information about Sessions come from?  Who ordered it and then leaked it. Was the Obama Whitehouse spying on Trump officials like Sessions and Mike Flynn? Was Trump himself being tapped and recorded?  And why did Obama’s Justice department attempt to get FISA court clearance to spy on Trump campaign officials? 

            The scandal is that the Obama White House was investigating Trump officials and probably Trump himself in the course of the campaign.  It used the government’s intelligence services to illegally tap, monitor, and record personal communications of American citizens.  These are the tactics of a police state. 

            That’s the real news for the fake media.

            Democrats assumed Hillary would win the election and continue the Obama agenda to deconstruct the nation.  Her loss was like an icepick through the collective head of the left.  Panic stricken, they watched their Marxist social-justice nirvana slip through their fingers.  Democrats and the media have since been in total meltdown and will stop at nothing to destroy the new President.  While busily picking off Trump officials, their ultimate goal is Trump himself.  As part of their effort, and with no sense of irony, they have embarked on an absurd Red Scare witch-hunt.  The only thing more pathetic is the many Lilliputian Republicans jumping ship at the first sign of trouble.

            The Trump Whitehouse and Republican Congress must go on a war footing no different than the Democrats. They should begin by calling for a full-scale investigation into the police state tactics of Obama and his underlings in the White House and Democrats in Congress.  The question is who authorized the illegal wiretaps and surveillance of Trump officials, including Trump himself?  The answers to these questions will go the very top and make Watergate look like a bedtime nursery tale.
