Putin — Party of Two
Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced on Twitter that Putin has been invited to the White House in the fall. Right before the midterms. The news broke while Trump’s #1 national intelligence advisor, Dan Coats, was being interviewed at the Aspen Security Forum. He knew nothing about it. Dan Coats is the Director of National Intelligence AND HE KNEW NOTHING ABOUT IT. Trump is making very dangerous decisions, on the fly, and announcing them on Twitter, without the DNI’s knowledge.
When Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein walked into the room at the Aspen Security Forum, people applauded.
Trump flipped on handing American citizens over to Putin. The Senate had to step in and protect Americans from being turned over to a former KGB officer and current enemy. The vote was unanimous. Even Republicans said no to letting American citizens be tortured by Putin.
Letting Russia interrogate a US ambassador is like letting ISIS interrogate a US Marine or letting a drug dealer question El Chapo.
Republicans refuse to approve funding for cyber security upgrades to protect voting systems from another attack. Why? We were attacked! We are still under attack! Because the Russians will help them win.
Russia did it again. It told the world what Putin and Trump talked about in their private meeting which means now they control the narrative on that one. They no doubt taped everything, too, which will strengthen Putin’s hand. Trump could have sold Putin the entire country, literally.
Trump knew that Russia stole the election for him when he took the oath on inauguration day. He knew it when he fired Sally Yates. He knew it when he fired Preet Bharara and he knew it when he fired James Comey for investigating him. He has always known.
Trump’s team promised the Russians that they’d lift the sanctions put upon them by the Magnitsky Act. The law allows for the freezing of offshore assets and bans visas for human rights abusers. The more countries that pass the act, the less places Putin and his oligarchs have to hide their money. Since Putin obviously talked about Bill Browder during their private meeting, the UK citizen and the master mind behind the Magnitsky Act (which was named after his friend and business associate who was beaten to death by the Russians,) Trump probably promised to deliver Browder’s head on a Trump branded silver plated platter.
Reminder: Putin is a former KGB agent. He kills people.
Officials within the Department of Veterans Affairs are getting rid of staffers who they believe are not loyal to Trump.
In addition to North Korea no longer being a nuclear threat and ISIS being defeated, the Trump administration has declared that poverty is no longer a problem in the US. “Based on historical standards of material wellbeing and the terms of engagement, our War on Poverty is largely over and a success,” the White House Council of Economic Advisers said. They based their report on how fewer people are dependent on government. Not getting food assistance has solved the problem. The government has tossed the poor to the curb which they will now be forced to call home. Republicans will drive by and yell, “GET A JOB!”
Republican (Libertarian) hypocrite fun fact: Rand Paul is getting attention again. He’s grand standing on the Senate floor, defending Trump by pushing Trump Derangement Syndrome. He says if you don’t want Trump to talk to Putin you must want war. He’ll side with the sufferers of Trump Derangement Syndrome when it comes time to vote.
The Republicans have proven themselves not to be the family values party with all of the stories breaking about affairs, abortions, paying off porn stars and nude models, homosexual trysts, wife beating, not protecting children from being murdered at school, and letting the government kidnap foreign born children and putting them in cages and God knows what else. They have proved themselves to not be the wholesome Christian values party by enabling their so called religious leaders and devotees to support their corrupt, adulterous, criminal president, manipulating the Christian Taliban to vote for them by constantly throwing red meat at them like abortion and gay people being the devil, and using the annual prayer breakfast for dirty networking with the Russians and God knows what else, and they can’t be the law and order party anymore when they undermine the American justice system. They can’t be the “real patriots’ when they’re not defending America and they let Trump do whatever he wants.
Putin? Party of two!
