When I first started Calamity Politics, I thought I would be writing this blog with thoughtful pieces on health care, cutting taxes for the wealthiest, the militarization of local police departments, marginalization of the poor, income disparity, public education, immigration policy, and on, and on. However, that has not been the case. The daily news commentators are in a frenzy. The daily political news comment and discussion have centered on the Russian involvement in the 2016 U.S. elections. A very bit story. That whole drama has morphed into what did the Russians, and the Trump campaign do together? Was there collusion? OMG, it sure looks like it.
With all that said, maybe you have been wondering why, I have been so quiet about Trump and the Russians?
Who Knew What? Did It Reach To The Top Of Trump Campaign
Scrutiny Of Financial Transactions Between Trump & Russians
To tell you the truth, so much has been leaking out that I haven’t been able to keep my head on straight. I’ve been trying to get my puzzle pieces together, but am still looking under cushions and couches for those missing pieces.
I recommend that you go to YouTube or MSNBC vault and watch the last two to three weeks of The Rachel Maddow Show. She is on this story. Rachel has found plenty of Russian dirt under Trump’s fingernails. It looks really bad. Next to Trump, the next last person I want in the Oval Office would be Mike Pence.
Russian Dirt Under Trump’s Fingernails
My friend, she is very smart, said the Congress would be forced to invalidate the election. Pence could not just step into the Presidency like Gerald Ford did for Nixon. According to Deb’s thinking, “The whole campaign would be indicted and as such, Pence could not be appointed to serve, because he was a participant in that same shamed campaign. Oh, okay, I wonder how that will work out? I need to think about this. Hmmm.
I do think Donald Trump may be the first American President impeached for colluding with a foreign government. Well, not too bad for 240 years. It just says we can’t allow ourselves to be complacent in our belief that the election process is safe. Not just that the election machines are protected, but that the psychological impact of fake news, conspiracy theories, and partisan bubblism is not fed into our system by foreign interests.
2016 U.S. Presidential Election Eroded By Russian Misinformation
I do plan on putting more together on the suspected Russian and Trump campaign collusion. I will likely try tracing Rachel’s timeline of inquiry. Don’t hold your breath, but I will try to get more of this hot political issue posted soon. The issue is hot, and seems to be getting hotter, despite efforts by the White House to tamper down the agitation in the media.
What I have written on the topic can be primarily accessed through the Kremlin-gate and Cast of Characters menus on the Calamity Politics home page. Keep coming back, there’s a fucking lot going on.
