Once again, everyone is ready to drag President Donald Trump out of the White House and string him up on the nearest tree on charges of treason after his press comments with Russian Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.
The media and Washington Democrats and Republicans are condemning Trump for being weak and gullible to Putin and thus appearing weak to the entire world. They called Trump’s comments unacceptable and the worst thing Trump has ever said or done. Some are talking about an official censure of Trump. They are also questioning whether the intelligence community can continue to serve under President Trump. They make it seem as if Trump believed Putin and in so doing, called the entire American intelligence community a bunch of untrustworthy liars.
One of the main criticisms is that everyone believes that Trump should have been much stronger with Putin. They point out that Putin’s government shot down a passenger airliner 4 years ago. They point out that Putin has invaded the Ukraine and Georgia and they call him a murderer and a former KGB agent who cannot be trusted.
The critics make it look like Trump swallowed Putin’s adamant denial of interfering in America’s election in 2016 and they point to the fact that Russia also interfered in Estonia’s election.
Then Trump said that it is better to work with Russia than against Russia, a statement that many are saying is treasonous.
Where were these treason claimers when Barack Obama illegally bypassed Congress and freed up millions of dollars and the sale of fighter jets to a foreign government deemed to be a terrorist organization – when the Muslim Brotherhood ruled Egypt?
Where were these treason claimers when Barack Obama went against all advice and sign a deal with Iran?
Where were these treason claimers when Barack Obama refused to enforce federal immigration laws and refused to secure our border, especially after it was learned that ISIS was working with Mexican drug cartels to help them gain access into the US?
Where were these treason claimers when Barack Obama sold 20% of America’s uranium supply to Russia? Aren’t all of these treason claimers saying that Russia and Putin are enemies of the United States? Wouldn’t that make selling the uranium to Russia a treasonous act since it is aiding an enemy, as defined by Article 3, Section 3 of the United States Constitution?
Where were these treason claimers when Barack Obama went against American policy and exchanged 5 top Taliban officials for 1 American soldier who deserted his post and was responsible for the death of 6 of his fellow soldiers who died while trying to find him. Obama said the 5 Taliban leaders promised to not go back to their terrorist ways, and yet they did.
I listened to Trump’s press conference with Putin and when he said that Putin strongly denied Russian election interference, Trump did NOT say he believed Putin’s denial, only that Putin adamantly denied the interference.
The media had already condemned Trump and declared Putin the victor days before the meeting ever took place. The same media that now is trying to paint Putin as a terrible and dangerous man, was praising Putin prior to his meeting with Trump, just so they could attack Trump and make him look weak, BEFORE the meeting ever happened.
In the eyes of the media, Democrats and Trump hating RINOs, Trump did the unthinkable, but then they already found him guilty in advance, so what can anyone expect now?
What Trump SAID is not nearly as treasonous as the many ACTS of Barack Obama.
The bottom line is that a house divided cannot stand and America is as deeply divided now as it was in the 1860s, the only difference is that then, it was a geographic division whereas today, it’s an ideological difference that pits neighbor against neighbor instead of state against state. Without a miracle, America is destined to collapse into this ideological chasm that is tearing the country apart and that’s what is really behind the harsh criticism of Trump’s statements from Helsinki.
