Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Sea Change: No One Blaming Iowa on Trump!

 

I’ve scoured all the usual suspects across the Internet, excluding social media, only because … raw sewage. But neither the alphabet media nor the NY or LA Times nor the Post nor Pravda has attempted to blame Iowa on Trump.

If anything, they seem to be hoping the whole kerfuffle is forgotten before someone ties their performance to a long string of epic political blunders. Like nominating Hillary so she would retire the DNC’s massive debt in 2016, or staging the most ham-handed coup attempt in the history of the republic in the name of protecting democracy. A move so reminiscent of mid-20th-century fascism that their preemptive accusation of fascism against the opposing side signaled their own transparent perfidy.

Having achieved a sort of political nadir, it appears that the identity-manglers need a fresh, creative boost to continue on their great decline to explore new depths of villainy. And I know just the creative stalwarts to show them the way!

The challenge: Blame Iowa on Trump in such convincing fashion that the usual suspects can resume their rocket-powered descent into unparalleled impotence. Remember, the House is still investigating and you may see your efforts inform the next articles of impeachment!

Ricochetti, to your keyboards.

    Yesterday morning I read a piece that said a local Democrat official was blaming Trump supporters, as they were calling in and jamming up the phone lines.

    My faith in the usual suspects is rallying.

    A Texas congressman claimed it was Russian interference. Guess what party he is.

    Yeah, Rachel Maddow’s running with that one, though only as the secondary clusterfark of the night. We’ll have to wait a few weeks for the memories of the app problems to fade, before it’s spun as the primary reason the Iowa results were so fouled up….

    It’s easy to follow along with the song, so long as you put no thought into the meaning of the words.

    It was Trump supporters or Russians or Russians backing Trump supporters.

    Trump is like The Jews. Is there anything we cannot do?

    I had an Iranian Uber driver the other day, who explained that the stars determine our lives – except for Jews, who only think we can change the world because we run the world’s financial system. I told him there has not been a US Jewish-owned bank of size since the 1930s (the first bank forced to fail was Jewish-owned, and it paid 100% of deposits).

    He did not look convinced.

    Oops, sorry, my bad—that was the low turnout (“white children are not in cages so Iowans don’t care”) not the “we can’t count” foul-up. So many failures to blame someone for…Iowa was a perfect storm. Russians and Racists and Rubes, O’my!

    I got a look at some code written in React Native, the same language used by the sad n00bs at Shadow (ooh, 5exxy l33t company name) who wrote the Iowa Dems’ failed cawcus app. The app I saw had variables named after Dostoyevski characters. If that’s not plain enough evidence for you then I don’t know what the schiff to do.

    Didn’t Yang blame Trump?

    “”It might be helpful to have a President and government that understand technology so this sort of thing doesn’t happen,” tweeted Yang.”

    Ask them how the Trump supporters knew what numbers to call.

    It’s the evil/idiot scenario, which usually only applies to presidents and other top GOP politicians. The default position is they’re morons, but it they need to be evil geniuses to make the latest conspiracy theory work, they can be that for a few minutes. In this case, some super-smart evil person probably gave all the moron Trump supporters who barely know how to use their cell phones the number, and the mindless flunkies just followed orders.

    Pffft! It wouldn’t be much of a secret world-wide conspiracy if they owned the banks in their real names. The Uber driver was probably able to get a FISA warrant to substantiate his claims through a Steele connection, those Uber drivers make all kinds of connections in their line of work. Did he mention all the mullahs who are crypto-Jews?

    But then there would be evidence … unless there is some super-secret website where all thee nefarious deeds are coordinated!

    The Republicans couldn’t invent Sheila Jackson Lee. People would just assume that that much numb couldn’t possibly inhabit one skull.

    Rep. Lee is one of many reasons Nancy Pelosi figured the Judiciary Committee lacked the brainpower to handle impeachment so she gave it to Slimemeister Schiff to produce.

    It would be bad form for a moderator to publicly name a former member so I’ll just say, “If only _____ were here he could tell us how it’s the fault of libertarians.”
