Russian collusion!

Only not:

Russian citizen Maria Butina pleaded guilty in federal court Thursday to conspiring to influence U.S. politics through her connections to the National Rifle Association.

She basically meant some NRA people and attended an annual meeting.

    The news media here in Oz reported it as “attempted to infiltrate the NRA”.

    Just exactly how you go about infiltrating an organisation that openly accepts international members, and has a well documented path to voting rights that requires multiple years of membership was left to the imagination of the viewer.

    The prosecutor must have had some serious juice to be able to coerce a guilty plea to that non-crime.

    Hey, French people! Stop voting for socialists, globalists, Fascists, Marxists, or any other authoritarian coercive redistributionists!

    There; I just “attempted to influence” a French election.

    I once had Oleg over at my house too, so I’ve talked to a Russian off the record. We may even have discussed politics…

    Of course we should know by now that making sense isn’t a goal in politics (never has been; it’s far too limiting), nor is fairness, or any sense of right and wrong. It’s about acquiring and keeping power and station, and in that endeavor there’s no room for those things.

    Anyway; reason, it has been said, is a “weapon” of the white male patriarchal dominance which has caused all the problems in the world, and so anytime you try to make sense you’re only proving that you’re evil, racist and misogynist (ERM), and you should therefore be dismissed out of hand, Asshole.

    If you try to make sense and you’re not a white man you’re even worse. Then you’re an Uncle Tom selling out your race and/or betraying The Sisterhood, Asshole.

    Also, making sense is insulting and threatening to those who can’t or won’t, therefore it’s a crime of assault and you should be arrested, tried seven times and crucified.

    Sendarius, it’s all in the book deal with Bloomberg press.

    Reading the plea docs, I bet we find she gets to stay in the USA. Word was a few months back she was looking at getting deported. To Russia. I’d sing their song, too. Who would want to live in the shithole country?

    Interesting to see if Trump gets people in the DOJ that actually play the same game the other way. How many ‘foreign influencers’ do you think there are in La Raza, the ACLU, SEIU, AFSCME, Teamsters and Planned Parenthood? All looked to influence the election, and all claim special tax privilege in the USA.

    Gonna need a bigger jail.

    The amount of money the Russians have given to the NRA? Around $2,500. I am an Endowment level Life Member. This means that I have, personally, given more money to the NRA than the Russians.

    Some people are smart enough to understand that just because she wanted to infiltrate the NRA it does not mean that the NRA wanted to be infiltrated by her. Even anti-gunners, but to them it doesn’t matter.

    How many Russians has Mueller found who voted in our 2016 election? How many other FOREIGN NATIONALS voted, aided and abetted by certain American officials? Wasn’t that colliding to illegally influence the election?
