Elder Patriot – You’d think that President Trump’s political enemies, having spent the better part of two years accusing him of being Russian President Vladimir Putin’s puppet, would be chomping at the bit to get photographs that they could use as further proof for their brainwashed followers that those bogus charges are true.
So why are they doing everything they can to undermine this week’s meeting with Putin in Helsinki, Finland, or demanding that Trump call the summit off altogether?
To recap the past week, we start with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s announcement that twelve more Russians were indicted in connection with Russian hacking during the 2016 election.
The timing of the indictments are suspicious at best. The investigation has been ongoing for nearly two years so why would Rosenstein call a press conference on the Friday prior to the summit with Putin if not to irritate the Russian president and to open President Trump to further criticism so as to weaken his hand. Keep in mind that everyone has been hacking everyone since the beginning of the Internet.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer called on President Trump to cancel the summit in a statement to the press:
“President Trump should cancel his meeting with Vladimir Putin until Russia takes demonstrable and transparent steps to prove that they won’t interfere in future elections. Glad-handing with Vladimir Putin on the heels of these indictments would be an insult to our democracy.”
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tweeted:
So what gives? Why is Rosenstein, the de facto leader of the Deep State, and the highest ranking Democrats in Congress demanding Trump cancel this meeting? Why is the media all in behind them? What are they afraid of?
Seriously? Let’s start with Putin’s knowledge of the Uranium One deal that only made any sense after Peter Schweizer released Clinton Cash and we learned that in excess of $140 Million dollars from Russian sources found its way to the Clinton Foundation as part of the deal.
On top of that, Putin is intimately aware of the circumstances surrounding the transfer of U.S. technology to the development of Russia’s Skolkovo – their version of Silicon Valley.
Remember this exchange between Obama and Russian Prime Minister Dimitry Medvedev caught on a hot mic?
Obama’s sycophantic media never investigated what he might’ve meant by the comment, “This is my last election. I’ll have more flexibility after the election.”
We can be pretty certain Vladimir knows all the sordid details though, can’t we?
Given Obama’s penchant for selling U.S. assets to the highest bidder, Putin probably knows a lot more than the little we’ve been able to glean from the mainstream media that buried their heads for the eight years that Obama ran roughshod over our Constitution and the Espionage Act.
Now, after two years of unabashed attacks on Donald Trump that same media has actually given Putin increased leverage in the coming negotiations because his knowledge of the Obama-era corruption has become all the more important to Trump as he moves to begin prosecuting America’s enemies – his political opponents.
Trump is going to learn a lot about Obama, Clinton, Rosenstein, Mueller, and, well, just about everyone at the highest levels of the Obama administration during this summit. Putin is going to learn that he’s no longer going to be able to steamroll the U.S. president.
It should be a good start to a productive relationship in the near future.
