Here we have a lovely tweet from Senator Lankford (R-One PerCent) about the Russian threats to our 2018 elections. He’s a Repube, so he cannot come out and say anything about our lack of preparedness. I’m sure Mitchy will be given him the stink eye, though, for even mentioning it in public.
From today’s Intel hearing on Russian interference:
• Russia will probably try again
• Other nations learned from their success
• Fake trolls & bots are still active
• Fed gov’t, states & industry must better work together
• Election security legislation still needed pic.twitter.com/zfR1JAj2Bj

Many people have commented on both the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s and the Congressional Repubes’ lack of concern about future Russian interference. The sad fact of the matter is that if you are not concerned and working in your capacity to prevent Russian interference in our elections, then you are complicit. You are a co-conspirator whether you are in contact and plotting or are just ignoring it for whatever reason.
What motivates our office holding co-conspirators?
The Ol’ Pussy Grabber
I get the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s in ability to address the issue other than through hysterical denial of complacency. He’s a narcissist. The Russian interference represents a narcissistic wound for him. If they helped get him get him elected regardless of his knowledge, role, or participation, it would be an affront to his delusional fake front of perfection that he has to maintain. He would be less than legitimate.
He has to fight against it at every turn. He’s a narcissist. He has to put his best interests above all else, including the country’s. He has to maintain his false front of perfection his caricature supremacy above all else. Otherwise the entire house of cards will come tumbling down.
The Repubes, though, are hoping that the Russians will interfere again. Remember, they are the party that hatched a plan to gerrymander Congressional districts and suppress liberal votes to ensure their permanent majority where they engineer and maintain a conservative domination of the federal courts up to and including stealing a seat on the Supreme Court. Nothing is beneath them in seeking to assert their political agenda on the US.
Make no mistake, they are not democratic. They are authoritarian. They are not patriotic. They are loyal only unto themselves.
If you vote for someone who is ignoring the threat, then you are a co-conspirator. You are furthering the attack on America.
