Up is down, right is left, black is white. Issues and political parties have been turned on their heads since Donald Trump entered the White House. Recently deceased Democratic congressman John Lewis refused to go to Trump's inauguration.
The reason why is manifest. He believed that Hillary Clinton was the rightfully elected president of the United States. He believed that Trump's presidency was illegitimate because of the massive fraud, malfeasance, virtual interference by the Russian Military Intelligence agencies (GRU, SVR, FSB) the virual hacking of ballots, and the overall meddling with the free elections of the United States by Russia and complicit American citizens (Cambridge Analytica, Steve Bannon, Robert Mercer, Roger Stone, Michael Flynn, Michael Flynn Jr., the Trump family, Breitbart and others). Added to that because of the GOP gerrymandering and voter suppression that occurred in 2016, Hillary was precluded from winning the electoral college. She did win the popular vote.

Congressman Lewis died believing that the Trump family and cronies were conspirators in promoting Russia's warfare against US citizens and democracy. It was they who Putin lured with Quid Pro Quos (money) for help in the 2016 election. Putin admitted this at Helsinki when he said that he wanted Trump instead of Hillary Clinton to win. The implication of his power is clear; that's why he didn't deny the allegation. Putin's billions made Trump et. al into willing compromats. The Mueller investigation proving this and the conspiracy was shut down by Barr right before Mueller amassed overwhelming evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Trump, et. al were de facto traitors against the US. Mueller did indict 13 Russian agencies (Military Intelligence) who hacked, spammed, stole DNC emails, virtually compromised voting systems in the 50 United States, and spread lies and misinformation, in a massive Republican generated smear campaign fueled by bots and Russian stoked #QAnon conspiracies.
Barr has since unconstitutionally vitiated the indictment of the 13 Russian agencies bowing to Trump who bows to Putin who swore Russia never interfered. American justice demanded and still demands that Trump and all who support him, especially Barr who is Trump/Putin's legal whitewasher, receive the punishment and recompense of traitors in a time of what is amounting to a new version of the Cold War. This war is being waged between American citizens and American soldiers fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan against Putin, Trump, the RNC, the GOP and other Russian apologists in the Federalist Society. Some patterns die hard. The problem is when half of the country is fighting a Cold War against US citizens that have been compromised by money from a foreign power (Russia) to maintain their power. Indeed, if they need Russia money to "maintain" power, they have NO POWER. They are a sad and pathetic group of losers.

I can hear you say as some of my friends have said; your analogy is wrong. The Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist beliefs) was banned in 1991 by Boris Yeltsin after a failed coup attempt. The party still exists but went through a number of transitions and has been renamed. The policies are different, but the tactics and MO are the same.
When Putin usurped the Russian Federation, he consolidated power to create the United Russia party under which is subsumed all of Putin's one man rule policies. What are his policies? All for Putin and Putin for Putin. Under the former KGB agent and his Russian Military Intel network are his complicit cronies many of whom he has made billionaires. They do his bidding and live the high life while ordinary citizens in Russia suffer. (see article on protests)
Assassination and murder are sufficient means to Putin's ends of obtaining power through bullying, threats, theft and money laundering via complicit banks. It's a network of cronyism and thuggery with a feudal paying of tribute to Putin. Putin murdered any number of his opponents who intended to institute democratic processes. There is a subset of apparent economic free markets which have kept some of the Russian people happy along with Putin's PR campaign as their celebrity. The bulk of the wealth resides with corporations owned by communist oligarchs tied to Russian Military Intel overseen by Putin.

However, this has turned sour as Internet Media has taken over the young people's interest in the last five years. Putin no longer is their "idol.". Also, his embracing of Trump is not a coup; it is more a fool's game with Putin looking the fool as Trump's unfitness is paramount. Also, Putin's increased hold on power, i.e. making himself president until 2035, have disenchanted many. With his removal of opponents, the seizure of the Crimea in the Ukraine which has grown old, and the problems with his mishandling of the pandemic, Putin's approval rating, like Trump's has plummeted. Ironically, other leaders in Western Europe have been praised for their leadership in the nightmare crisis.
Nevertheless, Putin's party which Trump and Trumpists embraced when they took Putin's help/money has insinuated itself into American politics. This has been evident with regard to our civil liberties as Trump mirrors Putin's playbook. The playbook is the old, Stalinist tactical MO which nullifies civil liberties: free speech, free press, free elections, free assembly, and uplifts the leader/dictator as exempt from prosecution under the rule of law. In Russia criticizing Putin or a crony could land one in jail or worse. In the past the KGB secret police would arrest you without stating the charges and put individuals on show trials often trumping up violations. Defense was nearly impossible. This is currently being protested in Russia's far east where a popular governor has been removed, murder allegations levied against him by Putin in order to install his corrupt puppet. (see the article)

Today, things are not much better. For example A Belarusian model who had information about Moscow's interference in US elections told CNN she had been ordered by Russian agents (from one of the intel services: GRU, SVR, FSB) to keep silent about her dealings with Russian billionaire Oleg Derapaska who is allegedly Russian Military Intel. The model was on a yacht with Americans and Oleg Derapaska when she heard information about Donald Trump's campaign. Undergoing ordeals in prison in Thailand and petitioning advocates in the US, after 11 months, she was released and remanded to Russian secret police custody and jailed in Russia. She was threatened to remain quiet about any links of the former chairman of Donald Trump's campaign Paul Manafort to Oleg Derapaska. She credits being alive with the media attention she received. Her offense? Pissing off Oleg Derapaska and Putin with threatening to tell the truth about links between Oleg Derapaska and the Trump campaign.
Clearly, if one exposes dirty, embarrassing, incriminating laundry, Vlad will not be happy. The same is true for Trump who has regularly paid friends at The Enquirer to buy unflattering stories which would smear and blacken his already dubious reputation and brand. The cover-ups of Donald Trump's past and present infamies of corruption are legion but covered up with secret servers and Trump's affinity for providing no paperwork, emails, etc., as president (the only president in our history to do this).
Anti Putinizm is frowned upon. Likewise, an anti-Trumper, one who doesn't support Trump, means one disloyal to Trump to the point of death. Anti-trumpers are seen by Trumpers as snowflakes and libtards, anathema and verboten to anyone in the Trumpist/Putin party. Trumpist white supremacists killed (Heather Hier, etc.) and laughed about it. They have threatened those who dare to stand against Trump. Trump fires disloyalists who do not parrot what he wants to hear. Hiring a team of rivals who give uncomfortable information as Lincoln's Cabinet members did? Never. Trump surrounds himself with toadies and sycophants.

Trumps disloyalists have received death threats from white supremacists or Putin Party-Russian Military Intel or whomever feels the unction to stand for Trump against them. Thus far, whistleblowers testifying in the Ukraine scandal that led to Trump's Impeachment are some of those who have been singled out. Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, Fiona Hill, Marie Yovanovitch and others were fired and received death threats after Trump was not convicted in the Senate. Regardless, they have great courage and are seen as heroes by the majority of American taxpayers . Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has not uplifted Trump's COVID-19 diminution policies, has also received death threats as has his family. If you are pro masks, in certain parts of the country, to insist on wearing masks is dangerous.
One would think the death threats and bullying are perhaps being promoted not only by white supremacists, but by the creeping U.S. United Russia Party, which increasingly practices Stalinistic repression, intimidation and bullying. This is Putin's brand of communism. It would seem that "handles" and "names' don't matter much anymore when one sees these actions are pure criminality and thuggery. Regardless, such behavior is against the law in the US, whether administered by Moscow Mitch McConnell, Trump, Russian Military Intel bots via Social Media or Trump's para military goons (Portland, Oregon, Lansing, Michigan, Chicago, Ill) masquerading as unidentified "federal" agents.

The unindentified part is particularly Putin Russian Military Intel. If you have a name, a number and an agency, Americans can sue against the individual if there is abuse. Additionally, Americans can sue claiming constitutional rights of due process. Without identification, you can't. Clearly, these para military belong to an organized group that is not from the United States government. The fact that these goons cannot be identified speaks to the fact that they ARE NOT ON THE FEDERAL PAYROLL, but perhaps the RNC's payroll or mercenaries the likes of Eric Prince's (Betsy De Voss' brother connected with the Russia Sychelles Island meeting) former Blackwater agency. To protect the credibility of "Federal Agents" and the goon program in Portland, these individuals, should identify themselves. Otherwise, they could be Russian agents or other mercenaries. Either way, without an invitation from the Sovereign States, they have no place in the state, especially if the federal buildings they "guard" are not being threatened. Their presence is unconstitutional. If they have sworn an oath to the constitution, then they are twice damned. In my neophyte opinion, they are not FEDERAL AGENTS.

Trump and Putin appear to be brothers in tyranny. Putin frowns on a free press that is critical to his actions: a chief response of autocrats/dictators/tyrannists/paranoids. Indeed, he kills journalists or jails them. Five hundred have been killed since the 1990s; 200 since Putin has gotten into power, though some say the number is higher. In the US most of our media is skewed, editorialized news. These "information" sites present the lies of leaders as fact. To do otherwise requires investigative journalism which is time consuming but vital to an informed citizenship. To uncover the lies of leaders like Dick Cheney's WMD lie which was used as the pretext to initiate the Iraq war, one must dig; it is not enough to just report, "Vice President Cheney said there are weapons of mass destruction." One must dig into what leaders say to verify and justify the truth of their statements.
Increasingly, since the news content is voluminous, excessive editorial selection takes over. Thus, PBS like NYT is guilty of lies of omission in highlighting some stories over others. Their selection in not getting out vital information is a form of censorship. For an American public to remain informed, one must read widely which is difficult if one works. Thus, the forward creep of Putin-style United Russia "communism" into American democracy flies under the radar. However, it has impacted our relationship with our constitution's Article 1 and Article 2 powers, (the three branches of government and checks and balances and the power of the executive branch) as well as our constitutional rights. Putin has influenced Trump not only as a compromat, but as a United Russia/Stalinist Party member. This is contrary to the group think playing out in all media, but it bears looking at.
|Vladimir Putin and Oleg Derapaska (courtesy of the site)|
Putin increasingly has encouraged and bullied Trump into removing sanctions by not acting on them. For example Oleg Derapaska was returned his money ($600 million plus in fines from his Deutsch Bank money laundering schemes imposed by the Obama administration). Trump has relied on Putin's advice; he talks to him often slipping this information to American media every now and then. He spoke with Putin last Thursday, according to The Hill reporting. About what did he speak? It should be public knowledge in his role as US president. It is not. Putin may have been giving him counsel on the Putin agenda in the US: how best to further Trump's Putinesque "law and order" campaign to win the election and prevent Putin enemy Joe Biden from getting in. That would be interference in our sovereign and free elections, interference that Joe Biden proclaimed he would deal when he wins the election.
Trump's goon squad in Portland that he threatens to deploy elsewhere looks like the same para military folks who showed up in camouflage on the steps of Lansing, MI to bully Governor Gretchen Whitmer to "open up" and "liberate." Tear gassing, beating up and hauling away protestors is out of Putin's playbook. He practiced this a week ago; these are typical strong arm tactics that again smack of Trump's membership to the United Russia Party when he duplicates them as he did to clear Lafayette Park in Washington, DC. for a "Biblical" photo op last month.

That the GOP defers to Trump despite their role as constitutional protectors is reprehensible. It appears that they, too have membership in Putin's United Russia Party. They have been silent about everything unconstitutional Trump has done. They do not call down Putin's interference with our elections (Rep. Ron Johnson is currently being courted by Putin as has Rand Paul and other congressmen regarding the 2020 election). A blatant example of Putin-style communist acceptance is by Senator-Moscow Mitch McConnell. He is accepting money/favors from Oleg Derapaska who is building a toxic aluminum factory in Mitch's state of Kentucky against former US sanctions preventing Russian companies operating in the US. Where is Peter Schweizer proclaiming malfeasance and corruption as he did when he falsely twisted details about "Uranium One" as a Hillary Clinton deal with Russia that was a smear campaign lie? Does this blatant malfeasance by McConnell and Russian Military Intel's Oleg Derapaska who was most probably complicit in helping Trump win not bear investigating, Mr. Schweizer as a Quid Pro Quo? When the crimes are GOP United Russia Party malfeasance, it's OK?
The GOP's wholesale acceptance of Putin's United Russia Party to make deals that compromise our National Security is problematic: Oleg Derapaska is Russian Military Intelligence. Trump and the GOP appear to be compromat agressors against the American people. This GOP/Putin aggression into our democracy is further evidenced by Trump's response to our Bill of Rights by criticizing or decrying every right the constitution guarantees (press, assembly, religion-separation of powers, free elections, speech).
Furthermore, Trump has obviated viewing Putin as an adversary, placing his self-interest (getting Putin money) above the agenda of the US government and state of the nation. Obama leveled sanctions when Putin invaded Crimea with the intent of taking over the Ukraine. However, in choosing democracy, the Ukrainian people ousted Putin's puppet dictator who robbed the people and gave kickbacks to Putin. Biden/Obama/Hillary Clinton helped the Ukrainians establish a solid democracy. Trump has repeatedly attempted to undermine their democracy regarding those sanctions and especially when he extorted the new Ukrainian leader for a quid pro quo to smear Hunter Biden, Joe Biden's son. To the Ukrainian leader's credit, he did not fall for the bait. Such a tactic has Putin's fingerprints all over it. Trump, indeed, supports Putin and his United Russia Party.

When we ask Cui Bono from the war against U.S democratic processes by Putin and his Russian Military (13 agencies were indicted by Robert Mueller in his Mueller Report investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election) we note the beneficiaries are Putin, Trump and the GRU GOP. With this 2016 act of subverting our election, they became Putin's United Russia Party goons against the US constitution and the three branches of government. In that act and during the three years of Trump's illegitimate presidency, Moscow Mitch, Trump and the Red GOP sent our semi-functional democracy and our number one place as democratic world leader into a downward spiral making us into the SHITHOLE NATION OF THE EARTH UNDER THE SWAY OF PUTIN-STYLED "COMMUNISM."
The great leveler, COVID-19 has revealed these developments. First, it has revealed the GOP'S EMBRACE OF MEMBERSHIP INTO PUTIN'S UNITED RUSSIA PARTY (communism). It has revealed the extent that Trump has become Putin's chump to kill Americans: soldiers bountied by the Taliban. And it has revealed the extent that Trump may murder civilians by not protecting them adequately from COVID-19. His response has been an abject failure.
In regard to both COVID-19 and the killing of American soldiers by Putin's Taliban bounties, we note how Trump and the GOP have embraced Putin-style communism to war against the American people while pretending to lead them. With their inaction toward COVID and the killing of American soldiers, we see a dereliction of duty, massive, willful negligence, and the massive incompetence in making our nation a failed leader of democratic nations in the West. We have the greatest number of COVID-19 cases and deaths. We have massive global liability of crimes against humanity as Trump failed to act when he should have in January when Joe Biden wrote his NY Times editorial imploring Trump to stop the pandemic with various points of action.
|Joe Biden wrote a Jan. Op Ed in the NYT imploring Trump to act on COVID (courtesy of the site)|
Putin selected well in his puppet compromats and Moscow Mitch keeps Trump/Putin in power to injure the American people daily with their dereliction of duty in not convicting Trump for treason with his conspiracy with Putin in the 2016 election, in the Ukraine scandal, in the American soldier Taliban bounty killing scandal and in the COVID scandal. The deployment of goons, a la Putin style United Russia Party (communism) may be at Putin's directive for Trump to appear as the strongman. Trump's fake "law and order," is artificially the sort of icing on the cake to inspire white supremacist, blind, deaf and dumb Americans that Trump is SUCCESSFUL, after all. The tragic opposite is happening as I write this; COVID deaths mount. Positive cases increase exponentially. White supremacists might want to kill Dr. Fauci, but he speaks the truth. He is the way out. You don't kill your guide to escape unless you are a manic suicide.

If Trump truly were a "law and order president," first, he would abide by the laws of the land, the constitution. Second, he would turn himself in, arrest himself under the laws: for treason with a foreign power, for quid pro quos with many foreign powers to enrich himself, for campaign finance violations, for non payment or shirking of income taxes, for acting with dereliction of duty to not level sanctions against Russia for its Taliban bounty program to kill American soldiers, and last in the admission that he is accountable for criminal willful negligence in not acting immediately to stop COVID as other countries did (Taiwan, South Korea, New Zealand, Germany, Finland).
Did Trump gear up the DPA to manufacture billions of masks and other PPE and present national mandates for the protection of every American in a national program of guidance with the full force of the UNITARY EXECUTIVE WHICH HE SO LOVES TO PROCLAIM HE IS. No. He has yet to affirm his EXECUTIVE POWERS for the saving of lives. Does the United Russia Party have anything to do with Trump using the Executive Branch to remove his own crimes and prosecute his enemies? Does Putin influence Trump's not using his EXECUTIVE POWERS to protect and save Americans? Or is Trump trying to please Putin by making the US the last country in the world in MAGADEATH?
