Trump is trying to legally become the first dictator of the USA. And if he gets away with it, the American democracy as we know it may be ruined for the foreseeable future. Then Putin has really won.
Why would he say that? Is that what he or anyone would say about Teresa May or Angela Merkel? I don’t think so. People assume that a country’s leaders are not breaking the laws of their own country. So why would he say that?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1NKWYepioA May 10th, 2017. Putin speaks about the firing of James Comey.
If you read between the lines, the way you always should with politicians, it seems to be about Comey’s firing but the undercurrent is about some sort of struggle Trump is having with his own government. Putin is saying, in effect, that Trump would prefer not to have an adversarial US government to deal with – (the way Putin has it in Russia as an elected dictator), but he is not breaking any US laws. He is in accordance. So it’s all OK.
This statement by Putin occupied a space in his brain where Putin must forgive Donald Trump a bit, because Trump cannot yet deliver on whatever promises he had been given for his election help. The subtext is that Donald will need some time to make things “whole”. So this is the pass Putin gives Donald Trump, “He is acting in accordance with his own government.”
It also tells me that Putin has given Trump some concrete orders and/or there is a large debt to make whole – and now he is just patiently waiting for them to be executed in due time without breaking any US laws. Are they about lifting sanctions? Probably. But there could be much more in that back channel.
That back channel they wanted to set up was clearly an attempt to create safe space for collusion and yet more plotting against the people of the US for whom Putin and Trump have absolutely no love. And who is the brains behind all this? Trump is really not smart enough to be as sinister as Vladimir Putin. The real boss is indeed Vladimir Putin. But Trump would like to be as smart as Putin. He’s made it abundantly clear how much he really admires that man.
Witness how Trump’s appointees take liberties with spending exorbitant amounts on plane trips and then use the same line –“I did not break any laws”. Is that all any of these politicians know? Lawyer up then do what you must to get ahead? That is actually the real Trump modus operandi. Always has been.
So I see Putin as having communicated this to Donald Trump in some way.
Donald. Use your own rules, lawyers and state press (Fox). Get the right people around you and elected to key offices. Then what I have here in Russia, – it can happen for you and your family, even in the USA. You’ll never have to hear the press belittle you again. Then you and I will rule the world.”
And Trump took that bait, sold-out greed-monger that he is.
Don’t let RED happen here. Not here. That’s just too stupid.
Vote out every Trump Republican in 2018 and we won’t have to worry about this any more. Then we can all get back to our lives.
Make a bumper sticker! Or find your own way to let everyone know how you feel. That’s all its going to take. Our numbers are too strong. Let’s f l e x our numbers. This is easy. We are USA citizens! Let’s keep it that way … please.
