Standing in Red Square in the 1990s, I was struck by a nation, one with nuclear war capabilities, where time seems to stand still. Hospitals didn’t have state of the art capabilities, rural areas were isolated in their environmental extremes, pollution was so thick one could push it aside with one's hand. Permafrost suffocated the land making it hard to find green food. Russia’s aggressive push into Africa was more about expanding their quest for energy and possibly territory to colonize. Their options in their gulags were freezing up. China is doing the same in fostering civil wars in Chad, the Sudan, and other drought stricken areas.
Fast forward to the the U.S. in 2016. Presidential elections occurred, what was the sidebar of the purported foreign tampering of the elections process now overshadows rational political understandings. Concerns that Russia tried to interfere in the outcome of that election belie that the Democrat’s data was violated, not the data of the Republican Party. Lying and denying again her own culpability, Hilary Clinton engaged with Russians on multiple levels throughout her political career and also during the establishment of the Clinton Foundation.
Like so many others, the misdirected move on election tampering clearly obfuscates failures within the Democratic Party and liberal establishment. Failures it seems, no one wants to discuss. Such efforts to shift the focus from Atty. General Loretta Lynch and the Clinton machine resulting in missing the threats they present — ones their threat which which were known, and are very real.
In his keynote dinner speech to the North Carolina GOP at its annual party’s 2017 convention, Alberto Gonzales, former U.S. attorney general under President George W. Bush told a truth few want to appreciate and publicly acknowledge, that all nations spy on each other and try to influence election outomces (or leadership) in their national interest. How many have been overthrown, removed and assassinated remains a secret. Ever heard the concept regime change used in relationship to foreign policy?
The US Agency for International Development (USAID) and U.S. Information Agency (USIA) both tell the American story and try to persuade accordingly in the aid they dispense.
Disinformation dissemination and propaganda is a hallmark of many departments established to assist nations, which is why so many acting in benign capacities are stopped or detained at length — as possible spies.
President Trump needs to stop tweeting, remove his children from their advisory roles, given their ties to his businesses and their concurrent failure to put their holdings in a blind trust. Mr. Trump also needs to fill over three thousand vacancies. This will aid him in keeping his promises he made to the American people.
Congress needs to grow a backbone and explain clearly its plans to supplement the Trump agenda for the U.S., with safety nets defined. Our citizens need to prepare for more belt tightening, while appreciating that deregulation frees their own individual creativity.
Lower taxes will give Americans more money but they will have to invest it wisely. Healthcare, once reformed, will leave Americans on their own to make wise decisions. Government retrenchment from its role as "sugar daddy" means it will only provide its citizens only that which they themselves cannot do — for themselves.
