Russia's Democrat Party Allies: Hypocrisy common condition in Washington

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- The Neo-Marxist Democrats never cease claiming, without evidence, that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. But it is the Democrat Party which is helping Moscow to damage the American political system.

Remember all the wonderful things the Obama Administration did to advance Russian interests? Remember the withdrawal of missile defenses from Poland and the Czech Republic, Obama’s invitation to Putin to enter the Syrian Civil War, Obama’s inaction when Russia seized the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine and then began the ongoing seizure of eastern Ukraine, Obama’s promise to Russian PM Mevedev that he would be “more flexible” after his re-election, Obama’s gross weakening of the US military, Obama’s refusal to develop American hydrocarbon resources which strengthen Russia’s oil-based economy? 

Obama bent over every time Putin entered the room.  He did this so much that our former President has permanent finger marks around his ankles.

Remember how Hillary’s blatant corruption raked in the Russian rubles?  Remember how she sold out 20% of our uranium production to a Russian government firm while she received a half million dollar bribe via a speaking fee to her husband from that same company?  Remember that her senior adviser John Podesta and his brother have extensive business interests with a Russian company which, in Russia, is known as “Putin’s Child”?

Hypocrisy is a common condition in Washington and a frequent tactic of the Democrat extreme Left is to accuse others of doing that which they do themselves. And so the Dems continue to howl that Russia must somehow have denied their tarnished Queen the victory which was meant to be hers.

Hypocrisy is a common condition in Washington and a frequent tactic of the Democrat extreme Left is to accuse others of doing that which they do themselves. And so the Dems continue to howl that Russia must somehow have denied their tarnished Queen the victory which was meant to be hers. 

The undeniable fact is that there is no evidence that President Trump or his campaign colluded with Moscow or that whatever efforts Russian intelligence may have made to influence our elections had any quantifiable effect. Fired FBI Director James Comey’s recent Congressional testimony confirmed that.  Yet, secure in their certainty that Trump has committed crimes of some undetermined nature, the Democrats insist on pressing forward hoping that sooner or later something will turn up.

If left to the Democrats the Congressional hearings will continue for months, maybe years, and that does not take into account the investigation of the same issue by Special Counsel Mueller.  In the meantime our legislative branch is consumed with this fake witch hunt and the nation’s business is not getting done.

Given the deep divide between the neo-Marxist Democrats, who want socialist substitutes for everything that made our country great and successful, and the Trump Administration, which wants to replace Obama’s harmful policies with a return to proven traditional practices, it is natural that the Dems would do all that they can to derail the Trump agenda.

But it is reasonable to ask the question, “How far will the Dems go to achieve their anti-Trump goals?”

In an earlier article I made a convincing case that the modern Democrat Party and its commitment to the extreme Left (which is led by an avowed socialist admirer of the Soviet Union) is our country’s primary internal enemy.  Removed from power by the people, so that they can no longer give the Russians the benefits which Obama and Hillary gifted to Putin, the Dems have turned full bore to the weakening of the American political system.

Ask yourself what would be the Russian goal in trying to influence our elections to disadvantage a corruptible woman who had for years represented a compliant administration, in favor of a strong populist likely to rebuild our military and strengthen the American system at home and abroad. The only plausible goal is the creation of disruption and controversy.

And that is certainly what the neo-Marxist Democrats have helped them to do. With the eager aid of their left wing media allies the Democrats continue to vomit up lies and fantastic concoctions of collusion that never existed and for which there is no evidence at all. 

They sponsor, support and encourage an endless series of protests, a number of them violent, and do their best to deny to Trump supporters that freedom of speech which they insist upon for themselves. They create and sustain constant turmoil which not only prevents consideration of much of what the people elected Trump to enact , they daily diminish public confidence in the political system which has fostered American success for 241 years.

And this is the core Russian goal. The reason why they try to influence our elections, why they bribe corrupt politicians like the Clinton’s, is to damage or destroy faith in our Republic and thereby weaken or eliminate one of their two great rivals for power and global position.  This is part of Putin’s revenge on us for the collapse of the Soviet Union.

And that is exactly what the Democrats, with their rabid “resistance” are helping Putin to achieve.

So the answer to my earlier question appears to be that there are no limits – the Democrat Party will bring this nation down if that is what it takes to defeat Donald Trump.

It is past time for the Republican leadership in both Houses of Congress to recognize this and to use their majority power to put an end to these farcical hearings which are no more than soapboxes for the propagation of propaganda which harms our country and advantages our enemies.
