First it was former Bush VP and chicken hawk, Dick Cheney.
“There was a very serious effort made by Mr. Putin and his government, his organization, to interfere in major ways with our basic, fundamental democratic processes,” Cheney said, referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin. “In some quarters that would be considered an act of war.”
Apparently the “some quarters” he is talking about is the Democratic Party.
“I’ve never agreed with Dick Cheney in my entire life, but when he said this was an act of war, I have to agree with the former vice president. It was an act of war,” Donna Brazile said, according to a video of her remarks.
“And we better understand the ramifications because if they can take down a woman of stature like [Democratic presidential nominee] Hillary Clinton with bogus stuff and then you have to disprove the negative to make it somehow or another truthful, you cannot.”
An act of war.
If Hillary Clinton losing the election was an act of war then we should invade or have the air force fly bombers over the offices of the Democratic National Committee since they are more responsible for Trump being in the White House than any Russian.
Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.) most recently accused Russia of engaging in warfare.
“I think this attack that we’ve experienced is a form of war, a form of war on our fundamental democratic principles,” Coleman said during a hearing this week at the House Homeland Security Committee.
She lambasted Trump for his praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin, asking a panel of experts and former officials what message Trump’s “borderline dismissive attitude” toward Moscow’s cyberattack sends to the Kremlin and other nations.
Two other Democrats made similar charges at the House Intelligence Committee hearing where Comey testified.
“I actually think that their engagement was an act of war, an act of hybrid warfare, and I think that’s why the American people should be concerned about it,” said Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.).
“This past election, our country was attacked. We were attacked by Russia,” said Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.). “I see this as an opportunity for everyone on this committee, Republicans and Democrats, to not look in the rearview window but to look forward and do everything we can to make sure that our country never again allows a foreign adversary to attack us.”
Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s ranking member, has similarly described the election meddling as an “attack” and likened it to the United States’ “political Pearl Harbor.”
I think Speier is confusing Russia with a Prius.
When Cheney and the Democrats are banging the war drums in synchronicity, we better be concerned.
