Wait, isn’t this a conspiracy theory?
Insofar as it’s a theory about a conspiracy between Trump and Putin, I suppose so.
How is this any different than the JFK conspiracy theories?
Imagine if the intelligence community of the United States put out a report that said, “Our consensus is that Oswald did not act alone. Also, Cuba did it to get Johnson to the White House.” That would give the grassy knoll arguments a bit more teeth, no? And that’s what has happened with Trump. We know the Russians hacked us, and did everything they could to influence the election to help Donald Trump. If you want to dispute that, then you’re disputing the findings of the intelligence community. Which is, I think, a more out-there stance than the one I’m taking.
How do you get your information?
From reading as much as I can on the subject. I collect news articles on this, and comb Twitter for information. The timeline is just that, a timeline of known, verifiable events. Insofar as anything is verifiable in Trumplandia.
And your conclusions?
I’m influenced by other people. I have no inside information at all. Zilch. But I am pretty good at constructing plausible narratives around known historical events.
Can you prove that your theory is correct?
Sure. Bring me Trump’s taxes for the last 15 years, and a CPA who knows how to read them. Until the taxes are shown, Trump is basically hiding evidence. Now, show the taxes, and my theory may well blow up in smoke. But he won’t show the taxes. He’ll show the pee-pee tape before he shows the taxes.
Do you really think there’s a conspiracy this elaborate?
It’s not terribly elaborate. It’s a quid pro quo, is all, involving two extremely powerful people. But it’s still just a quid pro quo. Putin did X, now Trump has to do Y. In Trump’s parlance, it’s a deal.
How can I help?
Send me links and relevant information. Share the page. The media needs to focus more on the Russia/Trump story. Trump and Bannon are on a mission to destroy the republic, and this, seems to me, is the easiest way to remove them from power.
