If you haven’t read it, go back a few days and peruse the last post Trump Somewhat Fits a Mirror Image which is a comparison to Germany during and after World War I, and today’s Trump’s political objectives.
In the meantime the Trump-Putin Summit in Helsinki, Finland has passed. It has been termed by the U. S. as “Successful” and by Russia as “Fantastic”; however, both views are incorrect and wishful thinkers. There was of course a major bobble on the part of President Trump in which he lost significant points at home and worldwide. Americans in particular should be deeply concerned with Trumps performance, namely an assault on the democratic system.
(Whenever I wake up and put on my makeup I say a little prayer for Trump, I say a little prayer for Trump, and the United States of America. My apologies to Aretha Franklin)
Do I need to say it? During and after the summit, President Trump lost points with many voters and his political camp.
Based on what has heard and seen of the events of the summit and what came out of the discussions and interview may critically impact Trump’s electability for a second term. That being Trump’s close relationship with Vladimir Putin has been and is extremely puzzling and mysterious.
Trump’s disbelief of his own intelligence agencies is astounding and in practicality unthinkable, a ruling cardinal sin. Suppose John F. Kennedy dismissed early intel during the Cuban missile Crisis? I believe Lyndon Johnson did much of it during Vietnam, or possibly Franklin Delano Roosevelt on the impending danger of a Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor? (FDR may have done so deliberately.*)
Putin, the former-KGB Chief, cannot be trusted, lying has always been their trademark.
It is of, or should be, of great concern to the nation the president placed more faith in the Russian leader while overruling solid CIA, NSA, and FBI intelligence evidence in favor of Putin’s words. Loyalists FOx News, the GOP flacks have drastically criticized Trump’s behavior as well as Pentagon sources. President Trump’s position undermines U. S. security and diplomatic creditability. In doing so Trump may end up a presidential disgrace.
Previously, 16 months ago, I speculated Putin my have in his possession sensitive tapes of a young horny, but middle-aged, Trump during one of his Moscow years, years ago. That may be the very hook all along from the the early Trump campaign to the present time. (What if, something like that surfaced in mid-2016)
The POTUS as touted the summit with Putin a success. Undoubtedly, it was, Putin agreed to continue the coverup. ??? (Merely a wild guess) But as they say “Food For Thought.”
All the Best.
*Entering into the European conflict in 1941 was unpopular and not supported by 75% of the American people. Americans wanted to stay out of the conflict. Pearl Harbor made war imperative. FDR has sympathy toward the Europeans and Churchill, but could not properly assist them without Congressional-Isolationist and the public’s approval.
At the time Hitler made a crucial error, perhaps his very first, by declaring war on the U. S. just a two days after Pearl Harbor. (Hitler’s second mistake was opening a second front with Russia) Chances are the U. S. would have debated and delayed entry into the European conflict for months if not years, while Japan and Germany were equally foolish in attacking a giant resources rich industrial nation.
Further noted, in 1939 and until December 7th, 1941 the U. S. was significantly profiting selling to the warring nations critical material from fabric to explosives. And the war was not costing the Americans a single life. Readers, ever wonder why the U. S. entered into WWI? The invoices were piling up, and Britain and France were behind in paying up. We had ensure Germany lost who owned the U. S. nothing much, they had been blocked all through the war. the U. S then pressured the allies to make sure the Germans paid reparations as quickly as they could. Peace.
