‘Helsinki, Finland (CNN – US President Donald Trump, in a stunning rebuke of the US intelligence community, declined on Monday to endorse the US government’s assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election, saying he doesn’t ‘see any reason why’ Russia would be responsible.’ CNN
‘Instead, Trump –standing alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin–touted Putin’s vigorous denial and pivoted to complaining about the Democratic National Committee’s server and missing emails from Hillary Clinton’s personal account.’ CNN
None of the United States 17 intelligence agencies have contended that Russian hacking into the Democratic National Committee’s computers, delegitimizes Trumps election to the presidency.
Yet, the president refuses the advice of his, chosen, intelligence leaders…who are republicans…all.’
‘Trump, finally asked whom he believes on Russia interference, give a vague and rambling non-answer, with renewed complaints about Hillary’s server. Says he trusts US intel but made clear he takes Putin’s denials seriously. Lame response to say the least.’ Brit Hume, Fox News
‘It’s not a right or left thing. It’s just wrong.’ Cavuto said, adding that Trump failed to offer ‘even a mild criticism.’ Fox Business Network’s Neil Cavuto
‘Neil Cavuto of Fox Business calls Trump’s press conference ‘disgusting’, ‘That sets us back a lot.’
‘Ari Fleischer, a former aide in the George W. Bush administration and a Fox News contributor, said Trump’s acceptance of Putin’s denials give him a better understanding for why Democrats ‘think Putin must have the goods on him.’ CNN
Chastisement, was freely and vociferously given, for all of our NATO allies on this diplomatic trip, by president Trump.
He singled out German Chancellor Angela Merkel and United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May for special insults and denigration.
President Trump referred to the European Union as our ‘foe’ prior to his Helsinki meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin.
President Trump, according to the United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May, encouraged her to sue the European Union as a Brexit strategy.
Germany Chancellor, Angela Merkel, responded to president Trump’s criticism that Germany is controlled by Russia…saying she had grown up in East Germany and that she knew what it was to be controlled by Russia.
Where are the republican patriots?
Where are the republicans that will, stand up and say, that they support the FBI and the Justice Department…who are the backbone of our law enforcement at the federal level?
Where are the republican patriots that will say that Russia is our enemy and has been so for many years and that the president is wrong to embrace Putin and disparage and belittle and demonize…his own intelligence agencies in an attempt to apply a balm to his bruised and gigantic ego?
Do we want and do we approve of the vilifying of our NATO allies…who have been our friends and the bulwark of freedom for over 70 years…in order to hold close and embrace and love a brutal murderous dictator….who’s goal is our destruction?
It is not about tax cuts or a conservative agenda or another Supreme Court nominee…it is about freedom or treason!
‘No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant.’ Senator John McCain
‘The damage inflicted by president Trump’s naïveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate. But is is clear that the summit in Helsinki was a tragic mistake,’ McCain said in a statement. ‘President Trump proved not only unable, but unwilling to stand up to Putin. He and Putin seemed to be speaking from the same script as the president made a conscious choice to defend a tyrant against the fair question of a free press, and to grant Putin an uncontested platform to spew propaganda and lies to the world.’ Senator John McCain
When and if our country ever falls to a tyrant and a dictator…there will be no questions as to your political affiliation…or if you were a Trump voter…but rather, history is clear, the rich and well to do financially will be the first to relinquish their possessions.
Academics and professors and teachers will be sought out for elimination.
Professionals, such as doctors and lawyers and business owners…will be pillaged and silenced and disappear.
Christian churches will be shuttered and their ministers silenced.
Freedom of religion will be what the tyrant and the dictator say that it is.
Freedom of speech will be…no more…and those engaging in it will either disappear or die mysteriously.
It, really, is not a republican or democrat problem…it is an american problem…it is a national security problem…
What does Vladimir know about Donald…that we do not?
