Schumer Comes Clean: Democrats - Not Russia - Are To Blame For Hillary's Loss

Tyler Durden's picture

In a somewhat shockingly frank interview with The Washington Post, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says that Democrats, not Russia, are to blame for Hillary Clinton’s loss to President Trump.

"When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things - [James] Comey, Russia - you blame yourself."


"So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that."

The reason for Schumer's sudden bout of honesty appears to be a rebranding effort for The Democrats. As The Hill reports,

The Democratic party is planning to unveil a new agenda which includes the slogan, “A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future,” and Schumer vows that it’s an expression “that everyone will use - a better deal for workers, a better deal for women, a better deal for prescription-drug buyers.”


Schumer said the new agenda “is not about moving the party left or right, and it’s not about appealing to one coalition or another. A strong, sharp-edged, populist, bold economic message appeals to the Obama coalition and the people who voted for Trump - former Democrats who voted for Trump.”

Of course, this is not the narrative that Hillary Clinton has spewed for the last 8 months. As we detailed in June, Hillary Clinton has put forth a formidable list of culprits for why she lost the 2016 presidential election. The Fox News Research team totaled up the excuses and found a whopping 24 items!

However there seems to be one glaring omission... "Hillary Clinton!"

And it's not just Trump supporters, as Liberty Blitzkrieg's Mike Krieger notes, even Hillary Clinton's former aides are sick of her incessant bullshit... Personally, I’m in the camp that thinks a large percentage of Trump voters didn’t support him out of personal affinity, but rather as a means to ensure that Hillary Clinton would finally shut-up and go away forever. That is not happening.

I issued a code red warning last month highlighting that I thought Hillary Clinton’s ongoing spotlight-hogging, blame deflecting, Russia fear-mongering tour is driven by a remnant burning desire to be President and the delusional dream that it could still happen. As I explained in the post, Manufacturing Resistance – The American Public is Being Manipulated Into Irrelevance:

The current environment is fertile ground for real populist movements to fight for an improvement in the lives of average Americans, but the public is being fooled into focusing all its energy on an unproven Russia collusion theory which hasn’t caused any of our very real national suffering. Our very own homegrown racketeers and thieves are to blame for that, but we’re being told to focus our attention on Russia. This isn’t an accident people, you’re being played, and played quite easily at that.


Ironically, “the resistance” is actually sucking all the air out of what should be real resistance. After spending a few months in the woods, Hillary is now actively moving to co-opt the entire movement. Why’s she doing that? I think she still covets the throne, and I think she’s power hungry and delusional enough to go for it.


Hillary’s positioning to run again, and there’s still no viable new third party. Even worse, there’s the naive and gullible Bernie Sanders still trying to “change Democrats from within,” a laughable and useless exercise. It’s unbelievably pathetic and disempowering, but it could get a lot worse. Brace yourselves for a few years of Hillary running around in leather jackets talking like a “populist” as she desperately attempts to reinvent herself. Our national nightmare is far from over.

I don’t know much, but I do know if the Democrats renominate Hillary Clinton or some other war-mongering, corporate stooge you can pretty much guarantee eight years of Donald Trump. If there’s no real choice, and we’re destined to go down in imperial flames anyway, we may as well have the reality tv guy entertain us along the way.

Perhaps it is that realization that finally knocked Schumer off his pedestal this morning?

It seems that the National Weather Center may know what comes next...

I'm glad he didn't blame it on "The Deplorables."

Hey Chuck, you ratfaced kike, I've got a news flash for you: the goyim know. Your pathetic "rebranding" schemes can't hide the Democrats' blatant anti-White agenda. Now your party's clown-car full of niggers, spics, fags, cat ladies, and dune coons is going to self-destruct and it will be glorious to watch. Just because the Jews are at the steering wheel won't mean shit, it's tough to drive a car after the wheels have fallen off. So please go fuck yourself.

Sounds like they're going to try to rebrand themselves as FDR style Democrats.  FDR did stop the hemorrhaging, but fucked everything thereafter right the fuck up.

I'm just amazed it wasn't Chucky that had the brain tumor.

But, as long as he lives there's still a chance.

I agree. I mean... People didn't get what they stood for? People knew  damn well. Ask the burn feelers from the Bern camp. Oh they knew.

IMO, the name "Fusion GPS" is about to become a synonym for "DNC cancer."

The Dims need to forget how to find Russia on the map except to demand tougher sanctions.

Some especially repugnant Dims may be about to be drowned in their own Swamp.

John McCain should choose to retire before Monday. Someone else can clean out his office.

Judgment cometh.

Creative_Destruct's picture

You may be right. This Fusion GPS stuff may become significant Russian blowback on the Dems and that could be a major reason why Schumer's trying to get out in front of it and change the focus and narrative.

A more important question: Does this mean that Mueller's days are numbered?????

I certainly hope so.

Poor attempt at stereo posting deleted

Mueller is a separate track from Hillary.
Look for pop to start asking what really happened with 911-WTC to know Mueller's future.

Might also look for Mueller's fingerprints on:
OK City?
HSBC money laundry?
Operation Fast and Furious?
Tea party IRS?
Randy Weaver?

Time now for Obama, Hillary et al to the gallows.

Schumer Comes Clean: Democrats - Not Russia - Are To Blame For Hillary's Loss

My response: So who pays for all of the lost productivity and legal expense associated with this BULLSHIT over the last 8 months? I have a suggestion: How about we garnish the salaries of every single LEGISLATOR on CAPITOL HILL?

As a side not, while all of this nonsense was going on, America's excess cash burn is 300,000,000 dollars per day above and beyond tax revenue and this gets added directly to America's debt obligation.

It is time someone pay for this kind of nonsense in the US Government.

Gus, please explain why your debt increase figure is so much different from the numbers here:

Maybe you are referring to the Total Unfunded Liabilities?

So can Prez Trump write exec orders on?

A) USA wants each month a summary report from Mueller special counsel 15 Atty team on - specific evidence found by this team of Russian interference in 2016 election cycle.

B) USA wants report each month from Mueller on how much his investigation bill to American people currently is.

All of the anger and violence that we have seen lately has greatly tainted the Democratic Party.

The Democrats have become the party of Kathy Griffin.

The Democrats have become the party of Antifa and mock Trump assassinations.
And the Democrats have become the party of James Hodgkinson.

U.S. Representative Tim Ryan was right on the ball when he admitted that his party’s brand has now become “toxic” in much of the nation…

Creative_Destruct's picture

Yes. The Dims have certainly made themselves look like a bunch of whining, vindictive, violent Bolsheviks.

They are digging their own hole.

FDR did stop the hemorrhaging, but fucked everything thereafter right the fuck up. 

A softer, less murderous socialism (right up until they attain absolute power, then the murderous part comes back).  Ever see the movie "Grapes of Wrath"?

Tortuga's picture

Well, imo the US of A was in trouble before FDR became president. According to my Grandfather the 25¢ a dark to dark day for manual labor with the CCC was what saved them from starvation. According to my father, there was no work and no "money" in circulation. My father related how he hadn't seen "real" money in years until he cashed his first months Army paycheck and sent all but a silver dollar home. $18 was what he sent home. Work for food was the currency of the realm. Call it socialism or whatever, my family survived and were life long dims because of FDR. FDR wouldn't be in or accepted by todays fascist dims or union progs.

My dyed in the wool Republican father in law says the same thing about FDR.  He saved people's lives.  They wouldn't have survived without his programs.

FDR was an accursed fag married to a dyke. His grandfather was "Opium King of the world."

DocBerg's picture

I once toured FDR's mansion in Hyde Park, New York.  The bedroom arrangements were interesting.  First on the hallway was his mother's bedroom, then Franklin's, and way around the corner was Eleanor's bedroom.  There were two large chairs in the living room, once for Mom, and one for Franklin.  I guess Eleanor was supposed to sit on the floor with the dogs.  Eleanor hated her mother in law, and finally had a cottage built on the border of the estate, where she could live in peace.

"the Democrats' blatant anti-White agenda"  -  That, in a nutshell, is their problem.


Democrats = Anti-White Party

Democrats = Anti-Christian

Democrats = Anti-Men

Democrats = Anti-Middle Class

Democrats = Pro Blacks, Gays, FemiNazis, Illegal Aliens, and the occasional dead person

Schumer is saying, "You're either a socialist or a sociopath", which is The Sociopath Psyop.

People understood what the Democratic Party stood for... the one they didn't understand was a Trump. Frankly, the man is still all over the map... but I would have voted for the Devil over Hillary... perhaps I did?

The Sociopath Psyop.

Combine those concepts with this fact: Psychopaths' Brains Show Differences in Structure and Function

The problem is psychopathic dynasties which have ruled humanity for thousands of years, always using technology and science to increase their power and control of the masses. Until we find a way to break their influence and prevent them from reestablishing it, there's no getting off this merry-go-round.

“is not about moving the party left or right, and it’s not about appealing to one coalition or another. " -Chuck

Laughable. The BS never ends.

Creative_Destruct's picture

A lame attempt to try to appeal to everyone, because they are LOST and don't know what to do.

Trying to please ALL the people is a fools errand, an exercise in futility.


spiral galaxy's picture

I think Schumer just woke up to the fact that Dem donations are drying up, Trump cut off his immigrant voting sources, squeezed Fed funding to the usual union and special interest voting blocs, and exposed that the Dems are bankrupt of ideas. Then there's the small fact that their party leaders are both demented, ugly, and biggest bs artists. Otherwise, the Dems are in good shape.

When your first lie doesn't work...lie, lie and lie again.

StarGate's picture

Schumer seems to be lead spokesperson for deep state (Schiff #2 now that the old #1 McCain is fading, God bless him), so if Schumer ditches Hillary; the message is - she is political history and unprotected.

Schumer is like: 'from deep state to our ears'.
"Deep State" being the UK, US & Israel intel combo.

Too bad that has no bearing on the Special Counsel. That was a bi-partisan move based on facts they have regarding Trump's campaign. Sorry alt's, they just don't convene those things for no reason.

Nothing more than deflection from adjudicating justice to the clinton crime family, dim and gopE, and their ilk.
