Our man Trump was defended by Russias Putin. Makes one wonder
why he might be worried about Trumps credibility. I understand Obama
has moved a lot of troops to Poland and Norway. Seems Putin doesn't
like this at all. Now why do you think Putin would not like american troops
in boarder countries? Would be he has a plan to invade them after causing
instability in those countries government? To protect Russian people I
suppose. Perhaps Putin thinks Trump will pull those troops out, and if
he doesn't? Could be Putin plans to blackmail Trump so he will.
Putin has used blackmail to get what he wanted in the past. What if
Trump had a friendly party while there last time. It is a fact that Putin
has cameras and recording equipment in all hotels and many other
buildings. I remember many years ago our diplomats discovered
cameras and listening devices in the American embassy the soviets
built for us. Putin was in the soviet KGB so he knows all about spying
on people. So it's very possible Putin has something that Trump wants
kept quiet, no matter what.
I fear we will have a president who will sell our allies out to protect some
dirty little secret Russia has on him. Only time will tell.
Will the GOP hold Trump accountable? I think as long as his supporters
like what Trump is doing they will look the other way. At least most will.
The GOP is considering a healt plan that would give those who have
pre-existing contidiions a way to have insurance. Only thing it would be
a plan for high risk people with high premiums and limits on how much it
would pay. They did mention they might enclude subsidies to help with
the cost. They should tell the voters this plan was tried once before, and
failed because the small states couldn't afford it, and with low lifetime limits
it's not much of a health plan anyway.
I hope the Democrats can get their act together so they can hold the
GOP accountable. If not it's up to the people in the end.
Some people may feel this business between Trump and Putin is no big
deal for the USA. Might be innocent, but if we allow Putin to invade our
allies in eastern Europe it could lead to full scale war. I fear once Putin
moves his troops in it will take war to get rid of them. Some might say
give Putin those small countries, they aren't worth going to war over.
Perhaps not ,but where does it stop? People have let agressors have
their way in the past and it always leads to domination by the agressor
or war. Authoritarians like Putin only respect strength, just like any bully
Facing world distruction perhaps we should let people like Putin have
their way. After all living under a dictator might not be too bad. If you
could call it living, I doubt if many would.
