  1. When Trump was asked about Russia supplying weapons to the Taliban, Trump said, “Well, we supplied weapons when they were fighting Russia, too.” 😲

    During the interview, Trump defended Russia in the exact same manner that Putin would have. In fact, it was almost as if the reporter was interviewing Putin himself, based on the lies, deflections, and whataboutisms that Trump gave as answers.

    The sad truth is that Trump owes the Russians way too much money for him to ever question Putin about anything. If Putin were to tell Trump that today is Christmas, Trump would have no choice but to nod his head in agreement and say “So it is. Merry Christmas Vlad!!!”

    Since the 80s the Russians have been financially supporting Trump and bailing him out from bankruptcy after American banks stopped loaning Trump money. He is still indebted to them today. And just like any loyal dog, Trump knows better than to bite the hand that feeds him.

    The motivating factors that drives a person to betray their own country, and become a willing agent of another hostile country are broken down into the acronym MICE.

    Trump clearly has no ideology, because he believes in nothing. But he is clearly susceptible to the other 3. Money, Ego and being Compromised. There’s no doubt that Putin, being a KGB agent, recognized those weaknesses in Trump from a mile away. People like Manafort, Kushner, Don Jr, Moscow Mitch, and many other Trump associates fell prey to at least 3 of those factors as well. Trump and his inner circle presented a target rich environment for Russan agents. I have no doubt that Putin was both dumbfounded, and elated at how many of Trump’s people were so eager to betray America…

    On April 18, 2019, a redacted copy of Mueller’s report was released to the public. The Mueller report builds on the U.S. intelligence conclusion that there were two campaigns to elect Trump— one run by Trump and one run by the Russian government. The Mueller report clearly identified connections between the Trump campaign and Russia. The report states that there were a total of 272 secret contacts between Trump’s team and Russia-linked operatives were identified, including at least 38 meetings. All of Trump’s people initially lied about these contacts when questioned.

  2. OMG he still believes that virus and troops being targeted by Putin is fake news but he believes a Dr. who does voodoo is reliable ? Yep he is mentally stable !!

      Trump Lies Matter

    • curandero verde : But, America keeps acting like trump and his Cabinet don’t KNOW this? Like they don’t KNOW they’re going to Jail? You realise, (I hope?) that this expanding Secret Police squad they’re building all over America, has only one purpose, right? To protect trump’s regime, when they refuse to allow elections. They aren’t just going to lie down and go to jail, you know? What do you think these units are really FOR? They’re unconstitutional and illegal, and you should ALL be getting them OUTLAWED

  5. Putin’s puppet playing his role perfectly!! #VoteBlueSaveAmericaAndOurTroops

  6. The Taliban aren’t shooting at trump, why should he care?

    • @Brian Barefoot I now often remember the words of the famous film producer Oliver stone from an interview that he gave to RT in January 2020(!) and in my opinion, they are somewhat prophetic – “I must say with regret (because I love my country!) that we have become a force of evil. We have become a force of evil for people, for those who want reform, for those who want to change things. For the people! For ordinary people! And nothing will come of it. I know it won’t work. It will come back to us like a boomerang. There is a historical force at work in the world. And if my personal opinion doesn’t matter, if people can’t do anything, then at least there is a kind of “moral arc of the Universe,” as Martin Luther king once said…
      .. All empires are collapsing… We are the evil Empire. What Reagan once said about Russia is quite applicable to the United States today. Then I thought ,” the same thing that happened to the Soviet Union will happen to the United States.” And I think it will happen soon. Not as fast as in the case of Russia, but something will definitely happen, because we have reached the limit, we are having a devastating impact on the history of mankind…
      ..They use money to buy the media, and they use money to buy candidates. Now candidates in the US must raise billions of dollars to be taken seriously. But it doesn’t work! There is a lot of corruption in America, much more than in any other country in the world. They talk about Russia as a corrupt country, but I believe that there is the most powerful corruption in the United States. Just incredible. And this is a real mass hypnosis. You can tell people that we have a democracy, but in fact everything is ruled by money. Therefore, it is not clear where to start… Where to start? How does history repeat itself? And history does repeat itself….
      … – You know… How has the US managed to achieve such success since 1945? After all, this is the most mass hypnosis in the history of mankind. They seemed to have written on the screen: “We are for freedom, we are for democracy, for everyone to become richer.” And they repeatedly “sell” this legend that the United States is the best country on Earth. But the facts prove otherwise!…
      … A huge number of people were killed in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Vietnam, and Korea… Perhaps millions of people were killed in the most brutal, brutal way. And when Hillary Clinton says that the United States is the best country that has ever existed, that we have brought humanity the most peace and prosperity, that is nonsense. If we had behaved more like Switzerland or Sweden, if we had acted as a leading power from the standpoint of the enlightenment, these problems would not have arisen and the world would have been better, much better than it is now.

      And I mean real issues like medicine, education and, as I always say, energy, clean energy. These are really important issues, in contrast to this geopolitical farce and claims that the US is in danger from China, Russia, Iran or Venezuela. They declared Venezuela a threat to US national security.

      This is unbelievable! This is hypnosis in action! It can’t be otherwise! I’m hypnotizing you, Rafael Correa! From now on, you will believe in the star-spangled dream. This is pure Orwell! And it works… This is advertising. And the greatest resistance to US domination is provided by countries such as Russia, China, Iran, Korea, and Venezuela… These are five countries, and they are very important.

    • @Brian Barefoot I have already written about this, we will never be partners while the US is trying to establish its power over the world! so when Putin called on the West to respect each other’s interests and build a multipolar world together at the Munich security conference in 2007 (attended by many US congressmen), the West immediately launched a campaign to demonize it.

      So the US has always tried “put a collar on Russia” – after Bush’s visit to Georgia in 2005, Georgia began to be heavily armed, Georgian President Saakashvili (who later had to chew his own tie: ) he wanted to solve a long-standing territorial issue (later the European Commission confirmed his guilt, but in the Western media, Russia was called guilty at the beginning of the conflict, and then no one cared to disavow this information) and attacked the sleeping city of Tskhinvali, where he killed civilians and Russian peacekeepers who were there under the UN mandate. Later there was a coup in Ukraine where there was a great desire of the Pentagon to replace the Russian naval base in the Crimea( which has existed there since the time of Catherine 2) to the US Navy base (where American destroyers of the “Arleigh Burke” type with the “aegis” missile DEFENSE system could constantly be on duty with universal MK-41 containers (those who are in the ground version are now in Romania and Poland, and the US around the world tells stories about threats from Iran) From these bases, you can easily launch Tomahawks towards Russia, where a SM 3 interceptor missile and a Tomahawk strike with a range of up to the Urals are located simultaneously in one container. The lease of the base between Russia and Ukraine, the lease term was supposed to expire in 2017, but the Pentagon sought to gain a foothold there earlier, and in September 2013 announced a tender for the reconstruction of school # 5 in the city of Sevastopol military engineering and intelligence center. – future headquarters of the US Navy :пентагон%20объявлял%20тендер%20на%20ремонт%20школы%205%20в%20севастополе (after the referendum in Crimea, the tender was canceled) in February 2014, a coup was organized in Ukraine, where the overseas curators of this process brought to power nationalists with slogans against Russia (but first with the help of European vassals of France and Germany, deceiving Yanukovich, signed an agreement on early elections in the fall of 2014 and as soon as the police were removed from the streets)., seize power, where in Kiev at the first rallies in December 2013, Deputy Secretary of state Victoria Nuland and the us Ambassador spoke (walked around the square supporting the protesters) and where on the Maidan in Kiev deliberately warmed up the crowd with a kind of “toastmaster” (with slogans against Russia, because they set up the population of Ukraine against the fraternal Russian people), and in the Western regions of Ukraine, for example in Lviv, where the entire square jumped, shouting “Moskalyaku on gilyaku” and “who does not jump, the Moskal”: and even more after that, the residents of Crimea (where Russians make up 80% of the population) held a referendum and 96% voted to return to their historical homeland – in Russia, where Crimea was located until 1956 (at that time, the Soviet Union had a leader, Nikita Khrushchev, who was born in Ukraine and built a career there, and Ukraine and Russia were one country until 1991, so the transfer of Crimea was just a formality) and after that, the Supreme Council of Crimea asked Russia to ensure the triumph of historical justice and return home to join Russia (although Westerners tried to speculate on this topic, but they themselves fell into their trap by pushing through the 2010 decision of the UN court on Kosovo on July 22, 2010. By the way, it sounded like a Russian annexation of the Crimea “green men” and nobody even not think that under the agreement, Russia/Ukraine, Russia had the right to place in the Crimea 25 000 troopsСоглашение_о_статусе_и_условиях_пребывания_Черноморского_флота_России_на_территории_Украины and at the time was 22 000, and the Ukrainian bases in Crimea soldiers APU was over 30 000 and could not hear a single shot, no one died (I think this is God’s Providence – the fate of Crimea was sealed)! How happy are the residents of Crimea after the referendum and signing documents on reunification with Russia ( in the West, the video was not even shown)

      Immediately after the Maidan (coup), the first law was passed in the Ukrainian Senate On the “status of the Russian language” (this is also being discussed on the recommendation of Washington) in the South-East of Ukraine – Donbass rebelled and asked the new authorities for autonomy or federalization (like Germany) to preserve their native Russian language, mentality, culture and ancestral memory (Ukrainian nationalists in Kiev had their own point of view on the history of Ukraine and the USSR), but instead of meeting the legitimate demands of one of the regions, the new Ukrainian nationalist government sent tanks and artillery to Donetsk and Luhansk, killing their own people (old people, women, children): and and Today, as a result of the civil war, 12 thousand people were killed. let me remind you that Victoria Nuland (assistant Secretary of state) once said in an interview that the United States has invested more than $ 5 billion in Ukraine since the 90s (through NGOs, special political programs, and so on):виктория%20нуланд%20заявила%2C%20что%20сша%20потратили%20на%20украину%20пять%20миллиардов%20долларов&path=wizard&parent-reqid=1592674647864877-864769627716770942500213-production-app-host-man-web-yp-199&redircnt=1592674782.1 After that, the United States presented the situation to the world as if Russia in the person of Putin was to blame for the whole situation and imposed illegal sanctions, first of all putting Europe (which in fact “shot itself in the foot”) under attack, which lost 120 billion euros on them, and Russia 50 billion, but at the same time, we must say thank you to the West, because Russia has localized on its own territory the main high-tech production, what was bought earlier in the West…

      @Alex xelA I work within this relm, believe me you don’t know what you are talking about. You are misinformed.

    • @Brian Barefoot “I don’t know what I’m talking about” parsing the situation “into molecules” and backing it up with links? And you post a “naked message” and ask me to believe you? Do you think everyone here is a fool? Or are you still in elementary school? You can write many more “beautiful words” about how this is all not true, that the “great West” (which the Lord himself ordered to rule the planet) can not do wrong and undemocratic, and so on… But look at the middle East, what you have done (Iraq, Libya, Syria – if Russia did not intervene, Syria would also be in the stone age and torn apart) by tens of millions of migrants in Europe, more than a million killed, the stone age in the economy, chaos and no prospects, and before that people there lived peacefully, worked, raised children and believed. the whole future. I don’t know what I’m talking about? you (the West in under the guidance with the United States) behave like Satanists on this planet. But you forget that we all live under God, so it is Russia that is on the bright side of history, but for what the West has done in the past 20 years, I hope God will “bill you”…

    • @Brian Barefoot The West uses in their policy, cynical lies and fakes, if you remember how they started “killing” Iraq where Colin Powell from the UN tribune showed everyone vials of Saddam Hussein’s chemical weapons, which were never found ) Libya, where the CIA staged the “Arab spring” in provincial cities, and later Hillary Clinton (like a real maniac) enjoyed the murder President Gaddafi look at Syria where the “ready-made scheme” was organized riots of students throughout Syria, and later, fighters/mercenaries from Iraq and other countries were declared “the opposition to Assad” and if Russia had not intervened in 2015 and would not have destroyed ISIL / mercenaries, Syria would have not already existed , and how the organization “white helmets” (headquartered in London) organized the staging of chemical attacks (and then Assad was made guilty in the Western media), How the West is trying to oust the legitimately elected President Assad under any pretext! To the article, what are American troops doing in Syria? For example, Russian troops are there by official invitation, and your troops are probably there to “pour gasoline on the fire”, but this is a separate topic….

      The only part of the Constitution that is important to Americans – when i say “Americans” i mean white people, they alone bares the name “Americans” without attachment – is the 2nd amendment and when it convenient the part that covers free speech and again that’s only for white people. the 13th, 14th is of no importance because they infringe on white people’s territory, as for the 25th that’s not even on the paper when it comes to a white president, they wanted to use it to unseat Obama the black president who was bringing this country back from financial disaster but for trump the president that plunging this country into the abyss, NO.

    • A lot of people are saying that President Trump spreads conspiracies and innuendo by using the phrase “a lot of people are saying.”
      A lot of people are saying that, “I would like you to do us a favor though,” is a quid pro quote.
      A lot of people are saying, “Donald Trump broke America.”
      A lot of people are saying, that “Donald Trump is a swaggering, overbearing, tin-plated dictator with delusions of godhood.”
      A lot of people are saying, “R stands for Russian now and not Republican.”
      A lot of people are saying that, “Donald Trump is a False Flag Operation.”
      A lot of people are saying that “Donald Trump’s tax returns will prove that he is not a billionaire and that is his worst fear is to be outed as a mere millionaire.”
      A lot of people are saying, “Stephen Miller is an albino Megamind.”
      A lot of people are saying, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men and woman to do nothing.”
      A lot of people are saying, “Vote for Democrats if you want to live.”
