Russian Television Offers Clarity

Russian State controlled television hosts regularly openly discuss Trump’s subservience to Putin.

This week Evgeny Popov explained the recent “push” by the GOP for more severe sanctions against Russia as “an attempt to distance themselves from the perception”, implying there is no serious consideration being given to sanctioning Russia.

The bill is described by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-RussiaSC) as the “sanctions bill from Hell”.

Yeah, okay Comrade Graham.

The full text of the proposed legislation, entitled the “Defending American Security from Kremlin Aggression Act of 2018,” was released by the U.S. Congress on Aug. 14—but it was circulated by the Russian media one week earlier.  And the outrage against these “draconian” and “apocalyptic” measures was everywhere.’~ Reporter Julia Davis, The Beast

Legislation demanding harsher sanctions against Russia was put in the hands of Russian media a week before U.S. Congress released it to the U.S. media.

How did that happen?

‘Trump Is Ours’: Kremlin Media Fear Democratic Victory in November Midterm Elections

TV host Evgeny Popov, asks Sergei Kislyak, former Russian ambassador to the United States, directly: “Will anything change in November? Let’s jokingly assume that we interfere and all goes well for Trump.”

Kislyak evasively responds: “Let’s not joke about that. Americans have lost their sense of humor.”

Maybe, Serg, the reason we aren’t laughing is because it’s not funny that Russia chose America’s president, disenfranchising the entire US population.

Concern over GOP numbers is purely entertainment in Moscow, but it is a real threat to America.

The Senate Intelligence Committee warns— Russian hackers have successfully “penetrated” some of Florida’s election systems ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

“They have already penetrated certain counties in the state and they now have free rein to move about,” ~Senator Bill Nelson, Tampa Bay Times

Senator Marco Rubio (R-RussiaFL) was given the same warning, he responded as follows:

Trump’s Department of Homeland Security spokesperson Sara Sendek, however, claims the law enforcement agency has not observed the new activity.

Why would Trump’s people enable hacking?

It’s their only hope of retaining the Congressional majority.

Meanwhile, Rand Paul (R-Russia KY) invited Russian officials to the White House. They must have declined the invitation because said traitor instead flew to Moscow, returning to urge Trump to lift sanctions levied against Russian leaders.

Who do these Republicans work for?

John McCain offers the answer:

“I repeat again, the senator from Kentucky is now working for Vladimir Putin.” ~Senator John McCain

The answer is Vladimir Putin.

I wonder if Rand Paul’s neighbor could have hit him harder.

Apparently we can not count on the Republicans in Congress to act on our behalf. They are protecting themselves by protecting Donald Trump. What exactly they are afraid of remains to be seen, but one safe bet would be their acceptance of money from Russia, funneled through the NRA.

November 6th is 78 days away. It’s not too early to request an absentee ballot if you want to vote on a paper, or to avoid long lines at polling stations, or to avoid strange occurrences like outages or missing registration. Early voting is another option.

      1. I do, too. I’m constantly amazed that there are still people who say they probably won’t vote because it won’t make a difference. Argh!
