Mika: Lies Will Bring Down Trump Admin

Mika: Lies Will Bring Down Trump Admin

Mika: I know my little meltdowns make you all laugh. They’re always right.

Is Mika Brzezinski feeling empowered by her recently-disclosed engagement to Joe Scarborough? On today’s Morning Joe, Mika confidently proclaimed that “I know my little meltdowns make you all laugh. They’re always right.”

Mika went on to predict, “I’m telling you right now, these guys [in the Trump admin] are going to find themselves fumbling on their own lies, to the point it brings them down. And it’s going to start with the press secretary but it’s going to end up on the president’s desk.”

Mika was reacting to Sean Spicer’s comments of yesterday on Mike Flynn, in which Spicer suggested that if President Obama were truly concerned about Flynn, his security clearance would not have been renewed and he would not have been permitted to give a paid speech in Russia.

I listened to Spicer’s comments, and I — like anyone else who’s held a Top Secret clearance — know that Spicer did no more than tell the truth. Obama gets his choice: admit that Trump doesn’t deserve the blame for this situation, or admit that he (Obama) is guilty of some combination of willful misconduct and dereliction of duty.

    Well….considering…. that Obama IS guilty of willful misconduct and dereliction of duty….

Why are you guys always posting about Mike and Joe? Who really cares about them. If I could meet Mika in person I could only say: “Your arguments always make sense if you don’t think about them.”

    Know what the enemy is broadcasting. There are people who believe this drivel, and I encounter them regularly.

    I think it has been mentioned before – if you don’t like reading about them, then skip to the next post. Better yet, start your own political blog.

    Mark and others watch these shows and summarize them so we don’t have to watch or listen to them.

    And knowing what is being said is helpful since these are the shows that the NY & DC folks watch.

      Why give them the traffic? They are money sucking empty people who would say anything for ratings and more money. So why bother.

Mika knows about lies.
My prediction is their marriage does not last.

    Six months, tops. I haven’t taken any of these people seriously since I watched “Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy” many years ago.

It’s them idiots at MSM using lies and obfuscation.
They should be the ones to be brought down by their own lies.

“I know my little meltdowns make you all laugh. They’re always right.”

Joe….dude, it’s not too late. Get out now, while you still can!

What’s really going on is that Joe and Mika are burying the lead (lede) here by intentionally ignoring the real story that came out of those hearings – yesterday was the day that was much announced and much anticipated by MSNBC, CNN, and the Democrats; it was supposed to be the day that all of the “real” testimony about the Collusion with the Russians finally came out.

And what did we learn? Not a single damn thing that we didn’t all know 3 months ago. Yeah, Flynn did stupid stuff. Yeah, they thought about it for 2 weeks before firing him. Yeah, team Trump shouldn’t have picked. Like I said, every one of us knew that 3 months ago – what point did yesterday’s hearings prove?

I’ll answer – none at all. Just one more great big nothingburger, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

And this more than anything else is why I am increasingly confident that there simply is nothing more to this entire “Russia” story – Trump’s critics are so eager to attack him that everything they could find has already been leaked to the press long, long ago. Their only hope was that they could start something and maybe something else would turn up to justify their hatred; but as time moves on, it is becoming increasingly clear that nothing is turning up, because there is nothing along these lines left to turn up.

    The hearings are designed to keep the heat up. If they can make a nothing into a simulated scandal, then they win.

    It’s Goebbels, all the way down.

      Liz in reply to Mannie. | May 9, 2017 at 11:03 am

      Perhaps they are all thinking about the Benghazi hearings and how long that took. However, the committee hearing delays were caused more from the delays in getting the documentation.

      But, the long hearings did hurt Clinton, especially since her nice quote about what difference does this make. The photo was taken after one of her medical events, so those glasses made her look even crazier.

      These hearings are hurting the Ds, in my opinion.

    Common Sense in reply to Tom Servo. | May 9, 2017 at 9:50 am

    Tom Servo has the best line about the hearings that were going to bring President Trump down because of collusion with the Russians.

    “Just one more great big nothingburger, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

    If there was one shred of evidence to support their accusations we would know about now. The democrats are desperate to keep this fairy tale alive.

I know my little meltdowns make you all laugh.

But they’re not funny.

“Blonde” jokes … now those are funny.

How ironic for the media, which has spread more lies than a feedlot has fertilizer, to call out Trump in this regard.

It would be like:
Bill Clinton doing a speech for a rape crisis center.
Geitner doing an ad for TurboTax.
Charlie Rangel doing an ad for H&R Block.

Tell us again Mika, “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan, if you like your Dr. you can keep your Dr.”. Or maybe “those shovel ready jobs weren’t so ready”. I can’t remember your melt down about those and there were a bunch more.

Oh, my… You are all so wrong, or watched the wrong channel. CBS this morning says it was a “riveting day of testimony…” and how the Trump Team should have known, yada, yada.

Flynn did something he should not have, and there is dispute to some degree, as to whether he had “permission”. Trump’s people found out, questioned him, Flynn lied, the team discovered the lie and Flynn got fired.

Had Trump decided to keep him on board after learning of the activity and of the lying about it, then they would have been wrong. But they didn’t.

If this were a real news show, they would have played clips of some very pointed questions by, among others, Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz, and Dianne Feinstein, among others. There was gold in that there hearing, but the nuggets were few and far between. Just for fun. they could have also played some clips by Al Franken.

Instead, they chose to babble.

    ….cause all the MSM found were old, cold Chicken McNuggets…..

Moonmouth is correct.

Gen Flynn retired in ’14 and gave a speech in Moscow in ’15. As a retired military officer with a TS-SBI cleared for SCI material his presentation in Moscow should’ve raised the ire of the DOD, DOJ, CIA and DNI all of which were under the leadership of the Obama administration. Yet, for all of Ms. Yates exclamations on how the Trump people had been warned nothing was done by the Obama people. Contrast this with the conversations Democrats had about Gen. Patreus and sactioning hid retirement for having an affair with another military officer who, like it or not, was an FBI counterterrorism consultant and held a TS-SBI! Imagine, folks wanted to punish Gen. Patreus for sharing classified information with someone who held a clearance but have no desire to address Mrs. Abedin sharing classified information with “Carlos Danger”!

The thing is, imo, Ms. Yates should’ve been asked, not about Pres. Trump executive orders on immigration but; (1) Ms. Yates, as the assistant AG in 2015 why didn’t the Obama administration take any steps to question Gen. Flynn upon his return from Russia for violating the law by taking money from a hostile government as a retired military officer and (2) Ms. Yates, you would agree that once the Trump administration knew Gen Flynn mislead the VP that the proper steps were taken to remove him, correct?

Funny thing is we know from the Senate hearings weeks ago that the FBI had told the Obama administration in ’09, ’12, ’14, ’15 and ’16 that the Russians were engaged in cyber activities intended to influence American thinking. According to the testimony the administration took no proactive steps to address this. We know that in ’12 Pres. Obama told Russia after the election he’d have more flexibility. We know that during the debates in ’12 Pres. Obama laughed at Gov. Romney for saying Russia was a growing security threat and even said, “Mitt, the 80’s called and would like their policy back”. We know that Pres. Obama, in spite of NATO’s pledge, all but ignored Russian aggression in the Ukraine (even as he allowed our NATO allies to drag us into Libya and Syria). We know that Pres. Obama brought Russia to the table with the chemical weapons negotiations in Syria and the nuclear program negotiations with Iran. Yet, we’re told it’s Trump that is in the pocket of the Russians! Really, just how much of the billions given to Iran as part of the Obama negotiations (which, BTW the court was still hearing the case and had denied all but one Iranian claim), I digress, how much of those billions have or will make it into Russia, N. Korea or China to purchase weapons systems? Do we actually believe the Iranian military and scientist pictured on stage with Kim at every nuclear test are there just to give moral support?

I am sorry but for the last eight years we’ve been so gravely mislead and the media has grotesquely failed, believing every single thing from the Obama administration. Even simple things turn out to be not so true. Consider, from ’92 – ’07 the publisher of the future Presidents books touted him as, “born in Kenya, raised in Hawaii and Indonesia”. Yet when asked he says he never knew. . . Really, you were unaware of the advertisement that featured you! Poppy-cock! It’s deception to make one look more worldly and special. Not enough? Okay, I’d love to know why we’ve learned, just last week that the magical love story of Barack and Michelle is a falacy. Chicago has a plaque outside the Baskin-Robbins where the magical first chocolate ice cream cone brought them together but we now learn that Mr. Obama had asked his white girlfriend twice to marry him before Michelle. We’ve also learned that Barack refused to introduce his white girlfriend to those in the black community he work as he would lose credibility and we know that he even talked with her about marrying a black woman if he wanted to run for office, which as early as ’87 he apparantly did. The point and I apologize for going so long, everything has been a deception and the media simply ignores it.

Oh, one last thing. Why will we never see any conclusion to the Clinton email server? How can we when the POTUS was sending off the books emails (fictitious name) to Sec. Clinton? Remember this is about protecting the Obama Legacy, to hell with the voters, truth and law!

    wendybar in reply to WillS68. | May 9, 2017 at 12:16 pm

    Exactly!! If Huma starts singing, she will bring Hillary down with her, and Hillary isn’t going anywhere without Barack…Hence…we can’t indict, and bring down the 1st Black President….

First of all, the MSM is doing all that they can to protect the Obama Administration. Spicer was correct in his statement of fact. So, the Morning Hoe attack dogs are now attempting to spin this as a lie. Not surprising.

As to the “hearings”, the entire media is missing the most telling point in the whole thing, the point where Grassley got both Clapper and Yates to admit that they had personally viewed intercepts involving Americans where the American had been unmasked. The looks they exchanged before answering are priceless.

The 800# Watergate gorilla in the room was the claim of widespread surveillance and unmasking of American citizens by the Obama Administration. And, it was not sent packing. The Trump/Russia collusion story has sunk beneath the waves now. Nearly a year of “investigation” has provided NO reliable evidence of any collusion, But what has been revealed is that the WH actively unmasked the identities of Americans intercepted and disseminated that information to multiple US agencies. It has been implied that not all of these intercepts were a result the surveillance of foreign nationals, but included direct surveillance of American citizens. And, we have no information of the extent of this direct surveillance or whether FISA warrants, based upon reliable information, were obtained for the surveillance. Congress is dancing all around the gorilla. We’ll have to see if the Congress ever decided to dance WITH it.

    Obama and his MSM are going to be “buried” and forgotten soon.

    They’re already down, and they can’t get back up…….

Check out this Yates testimony story – you may need to scroll down to find it.

“Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) also questioned constitutional arbiter Yates about 8 U.S.C. 1182. Yates said she was not familiar with the statute.

“Well, it is the binding statutory authority for the executive order that you refused to implement and that led to your termination,” Cruz said. “So it certainly is a relevant and not a terribly obscure statute.”

Whenever the President finds that the entry of any alien or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interest of the United States, he may by proclamation and for such period as he shall deem necessary suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem appropriate.

“Would you agree that that is broad statutory authorization?” Cruz asked. Yates responded:

“I would, and I am familiar with that, and I’m also familiar with an additional provision of the INA that says ‘no person shall receive preference or be discriminated against in issuance of a visa because of race, nationality or place of birth.’ That, I believe, was promulgated after the statute that you just quoted. And that’s been part of the discussion with the courts with respect to the INA is whether this more specific statute trumps the first one that you just described. But my concern was not an INA concern here. It rather was a Constitutional concern, whether or not the executive order here violated the Constitution specifically with the establishment clause and equal protection and due process.”

Another senator asked her when she became part of the Supreme Court.

Sorry, Mika, you overestimate your value. Your lies will sway no one.
