Sander's Deceit, Trump's Purge

Updated on February 22, 2020

Bad Actors All Around

Nothing like having unclean hands and motives in the U.S. presidential election with those trying to be the next President of the United States. Russia must be doing something right.

Bernie Sanders, a far-left socialist, who wants to turn much of the U.S. government into a Nordic-like socialist nation (think Sweden, Norway etc.) where the tax rate of 30-45% provides money for free healthcare, medications, free tuition, free this and that, also is deceitful.

A month ago, Sanders was briefed by U.S. Intelligence that the Russians were using social media to promote his presidential candidacy. Just like they do the same for Trump. Why, you ask?

Russian is sowing discord and fake news to gullible Americans too blind to see through their beliefs and greed. Knowing many Americans dislike the word association with socialism, they promote it and at the same time promote Trump, who is in Putin's pocket out of personal greed.

Sanders did not disclose that he knew this four weeks ago because he knew it would hurt his campaign in Iowa and New Hampshire. Of course, he claims it was a non-public briefing and yet, the Washington Post revealed the leak came from Trump's campaign and Trump brought it up. No doubt it was a smear on his campaign since Sanders is leading, but Sanders persona reveals he is no more truthful than Trump. Both withhold the truth to gain personal benefit. Russia did boost Sanders in 2016 in order that Clinton would not win.

As for Trump's purge, we have a crazy in the WH that acts like a Stalin in retribution and his demand of loyalty above all to himself. He has assigned the task to a former bodybuilder that Trump is fond of to investigate the American intelligence agency for those who are loyal to Trump and those who are not. This snake, who has no experience in government will determine who will stay and who will not according to Trump's will. It is a purge! Just like Stalin, Putin, and so many others have done to remove those that oppose.

Further, he has appointed another non-experienced person, Richard Grenell, in a dual role of Ambassador to Germany and National Intelligence based on his loyalty. Trump calls the intelligence about Russian meddling in promoting Trump as disinformation and does not think its true. This is all deja vu of 2016 and ignoring all the facts found out since then. Trump is emboldened since the impeachment failed and is targeting those that are not "yes" men and women to his policies.

Russia wants Americans to think the democracy no longer works through the voting process through the discord in America. Trump, by denying Russian interference, is helping it happen. Russia loves it.

      I dont know. I won’t vote for him, either. They are planning to replace all dems with progressives, which to me is like iron and chains, left version.

      I think the thrown away dems and thrown away republicans will start a third party.....

      Would be bigger than either party of the extremes, I think.

      If this is Putin engineered, it’s quite a good job.

      There will quite a divided Democratic convention should Bernie continue do as well as he did in Nevada. Scary thought that America might become a socialist country like Sweden. I won't vote for him, but then what?

      Lol. Ok, maybe he voted for Hillary.....

      It’s not “etiquette” to treat citizens with respect. We pay his dam salary.

      I thought you were a capitalist? Since when does an employee run the show?

      I am Trumps boss. Not the other way around.

      I don’t know who he voted for, do you?

      I suppose you were there peeking over his shoulder when he cast his ballot?

      I do know that he has never publicly endorsed Trump which is a fact. You on the other hand don’t deal in facts, you make things up.

      An 89 year old guy who thinks etiquette is more important than putting constitutionalists on the federal courts and following through on campaign policies is just about the same idiocy as you espouse.

      Did he or did he not vote for trump in 16? And who’s the red option now? There’s only one.

      It’s not over yet. We’ll see how my guy does. At least he’s a democrat, not a hater like you guys and Sanders.

      Vote love over hate. Never Trump. Never Bernie.

      And isn’t it funny that Eastwood dislikes Trump for the same reasons we do.....his character and personality.

      He, like you, overlooks the sadistic cruelty of his policies.

      But we’ll take anything we can get to get that monster out .

      Yay Clint!

      As always Leslie gets it WRONG!

      Eastwood never endorsed Trump, ever, so how could he drop him?

      Eastwood endorsed Romney, a loser, and so what does that tell you about his endorsement of Bloomberg?

      He’ll lose, but not the election, the primary.

      Oh but Leslie, how’s your pick Biden doing? Another loser, WRONG again!

      Clint Eastwood drops Trump.....goes for Bloomberg.

      “Tough guys for Bloomberg!”

      Macho men for Mayor B!

      Both Trump and Sanders want Russia to be part of NATO. Deripaska got his sanctions lifted. Rusal got sanctions relief and got their aluminum mill.

      Russia got our soybean market.

      Financial Times says Russia is reaping windfall of Trumps chaos.

      https://www.ft.com/content/9aa07c78-f099-11e9-ad1e...

      America’s debt is up, deficit up, programs cut, poverty growing, hate crimes up, gun murders non -abated, and a president who insults American citizens on a daily basis.

      People dying on border, kids treated abusively, families separated, never to see each other again! A horror story!

      And when does he do something about Russian anchor babies?

      From examiner:

      “In August 2016, Ukrainian prosecutors revealed that Paul Manafort, who at the time was serving as Trump’s campaign manager, may have received millions of dollars in payments from Ukrainian companies and politicians who were believed to make up a corrupt pro-Russia network.“

      So Pro Russian Ukrainians helped Trump, too! Lovely.

      “BS that Ukraine interfered with 2016 election.”

      So this

      ukraine-interfered-in-the-2016-election-thats-a-fact-not-a-conspiracy-theory

      From the Washington examiner is just fake news?

      https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/ukraine...

      Maybe you should define exactly what you mean by BS cause it looks to me like you think it means “the truth”

      Russia wants a distracted, divided, suspicious America in government. They know trump will be hesitant to believe his own intelligence, they know he is unwilling to face with Russia. Trump's military aid to ukraine is only some Javelin antitank weapons, he has bought Russia's BS that Ukraine interfered with 2016 election. Sanders is just another candidate that should he win, will overall America. Neither Trump nor Sanders are good for the USA.

      "but Sanders persona reveals he is no more truthful than Trump. Both withhold the truth to gain personal benefit."

      I don't know, would you really expect Bernie's and Trump's opponents and the media to be even-handed with this news? I don't think either Bernie or Trump has a moral obligation to make this known, and who even knows if it's true?

      I can't see how having Trump as president benefits Russia? Trump supplied Ukraine with far more military assistance than the previous administration, Trump has beefed up the military substantially and vows to continue that policy. Trump's foreign policy has taken a strong position to contain Russian expansion.

      Isn’t it funny that both Trump and Sanders malign the “establishment”, yet when Gore and Bush had the opportunity to gain politically through foreign interference, they both reported it to the proper agency instead.

      You probably read that Brennan says we are in a “full blown constitutional crisis”, Trump keeps hinting that he’ll stay til 2028, and Sanders supporters are saying Putin is better for America than democrats.......

      I guess you could call it chaos, I agree with those who call it treason.
