Revelations of No Links Between “The Russians” and The Trump Campaign Is Not News

Ahead of the FBI director’s testimony in front of Congress this week,  House Intelligence Committee Chairman, Devin Nunes, confirmed that there weren’t any links between “The Russians” and The Trump campaign. But that isn’t news and many on the right are applauding this ‘revelation’ as if it somehow vindicates Trump from a crime he never even committed.

More to that end, Nunes is suggesting there was Russian meddling in the elections — a fact that has never, ever, been confirmed. Moreover, there are no links that can be proven between Wikileaks and Russia.

“I’ll give you a very simple answer: ‘no,’ ” Nunes said. “Up to speed on everything I have up to this morning. No evidence of collusion.”

“The one crime we know that’s been committed is that one: the leaking of someone’s name …,”

“That’s what we’re trying to get to the bottom of: were there any other names that were unmasked, leaked and leaked out?”

What exactly are the establishment shills mad about? What is the nexus of their anger?

They’re still mad that one of their own, John Podesta, was revealed to be a corrupt operative, cavorting with other corrupt DNC officials — who used the media as an arm of the democratic party. Instead of addressing “Russian hacking” when the leaks were coming out, they waited until people forgot the details of the revelations. And now, they obfuscate what “Russian meddling” means. It means John “Has a Map that Seems Pizza Related” Podesta’s email box.

At the end of the day, they do not like their laundry being aired out in public. They do not like pizzagate accusations and they certainly do not like that these emails might’ve contributed to Trump’s victory.

In summary, there aren’t any ties between Russia and Trump because the Russians didn’t leak the emails to Wikileaks — white hats inside the CIA did.

      Pretty sure they weren’t ” proven ” to be a lie. That would be difficult to do.

          If you haven’t noticed, Trump has no party. That is one of the reasons he won the election. If you want to divide them up you could say, career politicians are against and citizen statesmen support. Of course we are talking in generalities these types of labeling are not all encompassing.

    It seems the only collusion that occurred was the cash that flowed to the Clinton Foundation amid the Russian Uranium deal.

    Clearly, spineless feeble excuse for a human being, Representative Schiff did not get the memo from the Chairman. He continues to peddle in lies and deception.

      That’s President-elect Schiff….. President Pinocchio’s approval rating is now 37% according to latest Gallup poll. And that’s before Budget Director Mulvaney finally admitted that Trump’s promise that all American’s will be covered by health insurance was .. surprise… a lie. The unraveling continues.

        Terrible job by Chuck Todd with Mulvaney. Failed to effectively hammer him on Trump’s lies on healthcare and cost controls on same.

        SCHIFF will never get more than 2% of the vote.

    In other news… I found this article from “next big future” highly interesting in terms of where crude might go.

    “US Shale oil strength and world oil prices and production predictions
    Wellhead breakeven prices have dropped significantly among all shale plays over recent years and since 2014, the average decrease has been around 46% within the main shale oil plays. The main cause has been a reduction in unit prices, which represented approximately 57% of the total decrease. However, acreage high grading and efficiency improvements have also played their part, contributing approximately 19% and 26% respectively.

    Among the main shale oil plays, Permian Midland has moved from averaging a wellhead breakeven price of 71 USD/b in 2014, to 36 USD/b in 2016. Effectively realizing a 49% decrease, this is the highest among all main shale oil plays.

    In order for the U.S. shale to start thinking of idling rigs en masse again, oil prices would have to drop and stay at even lower for longer, at below $40. The leaner, meaner and more resilient U.S. shale is basically wiping out OPEC’s efforts to achieve higher oil prices with the output deal. The cartel seems to be caught between a rock and a hard place — extending and/or deepening cuts and losing precious market share to U.S. shale, or ditching the price-fixing policy and letting the next oil price war begin.”

      If those stats are based on recent production costs, you’d have to ask: Are they based on higher cost production sites being shut down during the price slump and only the easiest-to-extract being kept live recently?

      Check out the Joe Rogan podcast with Dan Pena. Old school cocky bastard but sharp as shit. He thinks Saudi Aramco IPO will divulge how much they really have and thinks it’s even more than ever imagined.

      The US is the swing producer in oil and has been for a while. We control the price of oil. Other major non diverse oil producing countries have to pump and sell to survive. You can’t control the cost of something you have to sell.

    Isn’t this a blog about stocks and investing? I expect the Zero…guy to post this nonsense (for the sake of drawing in alt.readers) but why is this dominating the front page of a blog about investing?

      I believe that Fly would say that, especially outside of trading hours, indulging himself in his other interests is both satisfying to him and has been proven to drive traffic.

      I would be less gracious and say: there are things in the world far more important than your petty concern for dollars.
