Conspiracy Theory Racism

GOP Rep. Fashions a Conspiracy Theory Out of a Total Lie

Representative Lee Zeldin (R-NY) says President Obama might be playing for some other team.

What team is that? Iran of course.

The Obama administration did not deliver a "secret ransom" to Iran in exchange for the release of American sailors, but that is the basis of this ridiculous statement from Rep. Zeldin's office.

When deals like this are cut, one has to truly wonder whether the President has no idea what he is doing, or if he knows exactly what he is doing and is playing for some other team. Unfortunately, paying a $400 million ransom is no game and the consequences are grave."

One has to truly wonder if Lee Zeldin has no idea what he's doing. Maybe Congressman Zeldin is actually an imbecilic racist who has no place in government.

I can't imagine why the Republican party nominated Donald Trump, can you?

Maybe Lee Zeldin watched the same video of cash being delivered that Donald Trump did.

    The circumstances behind the payment to Iran have been well-documented, but it requires that one be willing to READ, and Trump has already acknowledged that he regards reading to be highly overrated.

    As for other GOP politicos who are trying to make hay of this story, well, desperate times call for desperate measures, and the sweat is dripping down their collective brows as Team Trump seems to be determined to make his entire party drown as his campaign rapidly sinks.

      And the story was covered by the media when it happened originally.

    The formula is: 2% fact, 0% context, 98% wishful thinking.

    And this why the GOP deserves a Trump Monster. They earned him.

      But- but- but the rest of us don’t deserve him!

        I know. As Mike Morrell has said, the trump Monster has already harmed this country’s national security. He has made statements that undermine the NATO Alliance which has been one of the fundamental cornerstone of American foreign policy since WWII. He has attacked the status of Muslim Americans which plays right into the hands of anti American jihadists. And as Mike Morrell mentions in his op ed, (something , obviously, that the rest of us were not aware of):
        “In fact, many Muslim Americans play critical roles in protecting our country, including the man, whom I cannot identify, who ran the C.I.A.’s Counterterrorism Center for nearly a decade and who I believe is most responsible for keeping America safe since the Sept. 11 attacks. ”
        And he has threatened the nuclear non proliferation regimen that has kept the spread of nuclear weaponry to radical elements in check.

    Once again Republican politics boils down to a hoax and once again it revolves around a video that may or may not exist.

    • ACORN (pimp and a ho)
    • Planned Parenthood (baby body parts)
    • Muslims on rooftops (“I saw it on the news!!”)

    And the ones that don’t involve videos:

    • Voter fraud
    • WMD
    • Trickle down

    And just to switch it up:

    • Global warming (pretending it’s a hoax)

    I have to wonder if the Republicans who know this is all horseshit and only vote (R) for the tax cuts and the deregulation if they have trouble looking themselves in the mirror in the morning of if they just smile and laugh their asses off.

      I really do wonder how many of these people are actually stupid and how many are just playing to part because it’s their constituents who are stupid.

      To whit: I don’t think The Donald is actually stupid either (he’s not brilliant, but he’s not a total moron). I think he knows that this is how he can “win”: by acting the part of the buffoon, The People will love him. Same with Sarah Pain. I think it’s all an act.

      • muselet

        With Donald Trump, the problem isn’t that he’s stupid but that he’s aggressively ignorant.

        With Lee Zeldin, I lean toward bag of hammers.
