Benedict Donald

The bar has been lowered even further. Just when you get to the point when you start to believe that the truth about this disgusting and incompetent administration couldn't possibly get more vile, they cheerfully disabuse you of any such silly notion.
We now learn that in March of 2019 Trump was issued briefings that explained to him that his bestest buddy, Vladimir Putin, was paying Afghan resistance fighters a bounty to kill American servicemen and women. When Trump was served up this information on a golden platter, he chose to do nothing. White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and Trump himself have been twisting themselves into rancid pretzels denying that he had any beforehand knowledge of Vladimir's dastardly doings. The Donald is telling us that he was never briefed, while Kayleigh is saying that the intelligence is still being assessed.
Late yesterday it was inadvertently revealed by John Bolton that he personally briefed the president of what Putin was doing in Afghanistan. When asked if he had done so, Bolton refused to comment - which is enough of an admission for me. This was probably one more juicy tidbit that Bill Barr's Justice Department forced Bolton and his publisher to redact from his recent book. Word's out that some website or publication has gotten hold of the uncensored version of Bolton's memoirs. I sure would like to know what else was left out of that book. Since Trump's actions (or lack thereof) are no longer "classified" we ought to be able to read what John Bolton was forced - under penalty of treason - to omit.

I imagine this latest bit of news is not sitting well with the men and women presently stationed in Afghanistan. If I were one of them I would go back to my barracks and sit it out until a new commander-in-chief is inaugurated the 46th president on January 20. Better still, I would walk out of that country all together. Donald Trump is not worth putting one's life on the line - I don't care what country you come from. Anyone wearing a military uniform tonight should feel outraged and betrayed by a man who was committing treason against the country they were risking their lives for. I'd be pretty angry, too. How do you think the parents of combatants who died over there feel right about now? Or their sisters and brothers? How would you feel?

Wasn't sending this corrupt jackass to the White House a perfectly neat idea? Can you imagine what would have happened to Barack Obama had undeniable proof existed that he was a Russian asset? The president of the United States is a traitor. The Republican party have spent the last three and a half years acting as his willing enablers. Wake up and smell the elephant shit, campers. It's later than you think. Anyone still supporting this contemptible moron and common thief is looking more foolish by the day. The first step in conquering a problem is admitting you have a problem in the first place. We have a serious problem, America. We'll just leave it at that.

Be safe folks - and don't forget to wear a mask!

Of course The Trumpster is doing nothing about the Russian bounty on American troops. If Trump places new sanctions on the Russians, there's no telling what they might do. They might call his loan. Or raise his interest rate. Or put a kibosh on the future Trump Tower in Moscow. Or — heaven forfend! — release the pee tapes.

Hi Tom,
Genuine question here. Is "doing nothing" actually treason? Especially if there was no obvious mitigation or course of action to follow?

Wouldn't you actually have to actively collaborate with a foreign power?

Trump is a clear and present danger to the U.S.and the world but this Russian hysteria by the democrats is stupid and dangerous. Trying to bring down Trump by forcing him to get tough with Russia is idiotic, they are a nuclear super power after all.

This story is complete bullshit, you should do more reading before falling for the propaganda, this article tells the story.


It would pay to read the best site on the web as far as politics go.
