Many folks have opined and/or asserted that President Trump is a “Russian asset”. But, that is not true. If it were true, why would Trump have threatened to hit Russia with economic sanctions, and even done so in a limited sense, over Crimea, and the Nord gas pipeline (German companies involved in the construction of the pipeline have also been threatened with US sanctions)? Why would the US still be backing the current anti-Russian regime in Ukraine headed by Poroshenko?
No, President Trump is not a Russian asset, or Russian agent.
The sad fact is that President Donald Trump is an Israeli asset. Of that there can be no doubt.
(If you need a litany of all that he has done for Israel in the past 26 months, just do an Internet search and you will find that he has been the most overtly pro-Zionist and pro-Israel president the US has ever had. And, yes, that is saying a lot when you call to mind Ronald Reagan’s tenure as President, and the presidency of George W. Bush.)
President Trump is now telling the American people that the Democrats are “anti-Semitic” Wow. That may actually serve to get some folks to actually think about this issue. Several contenders for the Democrat nomination for President are now saying they won’t attend the annual AIPAC meeting or confab. That is actually good news for all Americans. This effectively obligatory annual event is where US politicians of both major parties give their obeisance to Israel and to the domestic (US) Jewish interests. (Pastor Hagee, a leading Christian Zionist, has over the years gone several times to speak at AIPAC, and grovelled before the Jews there in a very pathetic manner which makes many of us sick when we see these speeches on YouTube.) US office holders and candidates for public office ought not go to AIPAC. But, declining to go and pay homage to Israel at AIPAC now makes one anti-Semitic? I think not.
Think about it for a moment. What other country (or people) on Earth commands this type of power over US officials? We do not hear of any similar type events held annually for or by the English, or the French, or the Canadians (a large trading partner of the US), or the Japanese (a rather solid US ally since the 1950s), or the Chinese (who finance part of our national debt), etc.
We observe that it was the Israeli Prime Minister, when he was in Washington the other day, who gave President Trump a bottle of wine in celebration of the release of the notes of Robert Mueller clearing Trump of wrongdoing. Netanyahu might have been honest and said these words at the time: Ha-ha. Mr. President, you are not a Russian asset, but we expect the American people not to mind at all that you are an Israeli asset.
Let me say in closing this section, I like much of what President Trump has done on the domestic front. He has helped to reduce the ridiculous amount of regulations (emanating from unelected, faceless bureaucrats in the federal government) that have kept the US economy from growing and providing better lives for all the people. But, his foreign policy is not guided by doing what is in the best interests of the US, but rather it is guided by what is best for Israel, a foreign state. His Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, is hardcore Zionist.
other not so related thoughts
Disclaimer and full disclosure: I am an independent, not a Republican, nor a Democrat. I cannot stand how corrupt both major political parties are in this country (the US). My thoughts below are prompted by how this whole false, contrived narrative (of Russian collusion) has literally given me a visceral reaction over these past many months. The nation needs to get back to working for practical solutions to its problems and challenges.
The whole premise of the need for a special prosecutor, Robert Mueller, was false as there was no evidence of crimes being committed by Donald Trump. Thus, Mueller went on a fishing expedition for 22 months.
What about the many individuals who contributed to this fake news story that Trump colluded with the Russians to fix the outcome of the 2016 US Presidential Election? It appears that the worst culprits were in the US Department of Justice (of which the FBI is a part). This disgraced former FBI operative, Andrew McCabe was recently asserting that Trump and those close to him in the campaign may have acted treasonously. Care to what it back, McCabe? (We are still waiting for McCabe to be indicted for his criminal role in this sad farce.)
Let’s be honest here. The failed demigod’s (Obama) Justice Department, under AG Erik Holder, and then AG Loretta Lynch, was politicized, or even weaponized as some have opined. Donald Trump would have helped himself and the entire country greatly by doing a thorough house cleaning early in 2017. Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein ought to have been fired early on. And, in hindsight, Senator Jeff Sessions, was not the right person for the job of Attorney General. To clean house, a person, a man or woman of integrity who had the fire in their belly for the task was needed. So what if the partisan, ideologically driven Democrats would have wailed. Simply call to their attention what Bill and Hillary Clinton did in early 1993. They fired every US Attorney in the country. (Why did they do this? Because some of the US Attorneys were investigating them for their crimes when they ran the state of Arkansas as their private fiefdom.)
What about former FBI Director, James Comey? Remember him? He is still pontificating to the nation even in the past day or two. Comey comes across as a useful idiot that has trouble telling the truth, at best. At worst, he is guilty of crimes related to interference in various investigations. That is obstruction of justice, is it not?
Is it possible that this whole false narrative was used for 2 purposes? First, to either prevent Donald Trump from becoming President, or if elected, to discredit and delegitimize his entire Presidency. And, secondly, to divert scrutiny away from the very many and serious crimes committed by Hillary Clinton during her tenure as US Secretary of State, and in her presidential campaign personnel’s role in the phony Trump Dossier, and the lies to the FISA court judges? Clearly, there ought to be some individuals going to prison for these crimes.
So, who are the real villains here? Clearly, there are many, including the completely irresponsible news media in the US. Apparently, many individuals in the news media are suffering from what has been called Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS), a contagious and collective psychosis for those immersed in group think, and who simply cannot accept that (corrupt) Hillary Clinton lost the election in November, 2016. Many of these folks still cannot, and may never be able to let go of this topic. If Trump is re-elected late next year, they will subject the American people to another 4 years of this sham.
The Democrats, by doubling down on this Russian collusion nonsense, are actually driving independents away and into the ranks of those who will vote for Trump next year. That is their choice, but it is not a wise one.
