The seditious Left is trying to frame this in Watergate language! NYT headline Here “What did The President Know and When Did he Know It?” snort! When did he know that his to be NSA spoke with the Russian ambassador to America? Really? Who cares? Well the well-known anti-Soviet… oops, no the apologist for the USSR and newly minted anti-Russian hawk Elizabeth Warren cares. The NYT quotes her saying “This isn’t a game. Reports say the Russians conducted a series of successful cyber-attacks on our elections to help elect@realDonaldTrump.” WHAT REPORTS? There are no reported attacks from any quarter other than the DNC upon the security of our elections! SHE IS DANGEROUSLY CLAIMING THAT THE ELECTION ITSELF WAS CORRUPTED! There has never been the slightest report of that! The question was did Russian intel have a hand in exposing the REAL CLINTON AND THE REAL DNC? And even that answer has been unclear. Not according to Assange! Wikileaks claimed the source for the DNC leaks was in the DNC: a disgruntled Bernie Sanders supporter. (Have you ever heard of a gruntled person?)
And dig this “Representative Eric Swalwell of California, the lead Democrat on the C.I.A. subcommittee of the House Intelligence Committee, was blunt: ‘For the sake of our nation’s future, our intelligence and law enforcement community must determine whether Donald Trump’s loyalties lie with us or with the Russians.’” Yes… Donald J. Trump is an agent of Russia. Of course. How asinine the Left believe the American people to be!
It is infuriating that the anti-anti-Communist fellow-travelers and useful idiots of the Left could never claim American liberty was superior to Soviet tyranny, are now anti-Russian hawks!
When the USSR was a would-be global hegemon and posed *the* major threat to America and Free World they mocked us and always would use their air quotes around “American liberty”. We were dismissed as paranoid “Cold Warriors” who claimed to see a “Red under every bed”. (Actually in the FDR/Truman years the State Dept, and DOD, WERE penetrated by pro-Soviet policy makers [read Diana West].)
But now, however when Putin represents the sole major power not submitting to The Global Corporate Tyranny, suddenly these same ass-wipes are anti-Russian HAWKS??? Joseph Stalin–> Gorbachov every Soviet premier we negotiated with. Each and everyone of them ruled over a Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) in which the Ukraine was one of the SSR’s. And Crimea was NEVER part of the Ukraine.
THERE IS NO REASON for the USA to be in a zero-sum game with Russia. Russia has become the major power she has always been. Now, a more normal nation, Russia is not the sword of Marxist revolution!
The persistence of sanctions on Russia for Moscow’s occupation of Left Bank Ukraine and Crimea will never result in Putin or any other Russian walking away from Crimea. When the Louisiana Purchase was done, was about when Russian power reached the shores of the Black Sea. Which American would submit to being forced to recognize a foreign nation in Louisiana? To allow the outlet of the Mississippi to be in foreign hands? NOT ONE OF US. Except perhaps Fauxchahantas and her fellow drips.
