I wish I could find where this post came from on Facebook and give credit to it’s author. I have a few more things I would add to his words. To the veteran and officer who wrote this, thanks!
My advisors have recommended I not write about this controversy but I owe you. I write as a military veteran and political scientist who has traveled to Ukraine, the Middle East, Helsinki, USSR to study up close.
Fact 2. Tonight the greatest criticisms come from two major groups:
A. Those who hate Trump and who will criticize the President for anything he does.
B. Those few in the military and intelligence communities who are wholly bought and owned by the war industries, for it is in their financial interests to have the US and Russia armed to the teeth and at each other’s throats.
As you listen to the shrill screamers, note how often they come from this corner (politicians included)!
Fact 3. The absolute truth is that the Obama administration interfered in the Ukraine elections which led to Russia’s predictable takeover of the area which holds Russia’s major naval base and sea outlet.
Fact 4. The Obama administration interfered in the election of Israel. Strong Nations do this when they feel that it is their interests to do so.
Fact 5. The alleged Russian interference occurred during the Obama administration, and we heard not a peep. Now these jerks want Trump to punch Putin in the nose and start a nuclear war with the other major nuclear force on Earth.
I’m a patriot and a believer in a powerful America. I have also witnessed the body bags filled with the fruit of American youth when fat old saber rattlers play soldier.
Trump was masterful in Helsinki. The Swamp Donkeys may scream but tonight the world is better off that these two men shook hands!
May I add two things to the words above. The New York Times reported in 2015 that “shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Bil Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.” In total, $145 million dollars went to the Clinton Foundation from interests linked to Uranium One, which was acquired by the Russian nuclear agency Rostrum. But the Clintons are not under investigation for colluding with the Russians to influence an election. Let that sink in.
Second, the Democrats are screaming about Russia colluding in US elections but think nothing of letting 20 million illegal aliens vote.
My thoughts for this Tuesday afternoon.
