‘You never even call me by my name’ … “Rationality”

2017/02/05

知己知彼 “Know Thyself, Know Thy Enemy” Although that concept appears to be way above some people’s head, as well as their pay-grade.

Not to take away from criminals and terrorists whatever their weapons of choice may be, their “Act of Love” is literally written all over them and fully illustrated by their choices and actions. But, that’s another subversive and destructive protest pending.

Trump defends Putin: ‘You think our country is so innocent’?

In an interview with Fox News Bill O’Reilly scheduled to air Super Bowl Sunday, President Trump defended Russian President Vladimir Putin after O’Reilly referred to him as a “killer.”

CNN:

President Donald Trump appeared to equate US actions with the authoritarian regime of Russian President Vladimir Putin in an interview released Saturday, saying, “There are a lot of killers. You think our country’s so innocent?”

Trump made the remark during an interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, saying he respected his Russian counterpart.

“But he’s a killer,” O’Reilly said to Trump.

“There are a lot of killers. You think our country’s so innocent?” Trump replied.

A clip of the exchange was released Saturday and the full interview is scheduled to air Sunday.

It was an unusual assertion coming from the President of the United States. Trump himself, however, has made similar points before.

“He’s running his country and at least he’s a leader, unlike what we have in this country,” Trump told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” in December 2015.

He continued, “I think our country does plenty of killing also, Joe, so you know. There’s a lot of stupidity going on in the world right now, a lot of killing, a lot of stupidity,” Trump said.

US Rep. Adam Schiff, a California Democrat who serves on the House Intelligence Committee, called Trump’s claim false.

“This is the second time Trump has defended Putin against the charge that he’s a killer by saying in effect that the US is no better or different,” Schiff told CNN. “This is as inexplicably bizarre as it is untrue. Does he not see the damage he does with comments like that, and the gift he gives to Russian propaganda?”

In the interview with O’Reilly, Trump noted that just because he respects someone “doesn’t mean I’m going to get along with them.”

“He’s a leader of his country and I say it’s better to get along with Russia than not, and if Russia helps us in the fight against ISIS, which is a major fight, and Islamic terrorism all over the world, a major fight — that’s a good thing. Will I get along with them? I have no idea,” Trump said.

Trump and Putin spoke on the phone last Saturday, and the two discussed cooperation in the fight against ISIS, among other areas.

There have been several high profile poisonings of Putin opponents over the years, as well as shootings, mysterious heart attacks, and car accidents. It is probable that not all of these deaths were ordered by Putin or even assassinations. But the bottom line is as plain as day; it is not good for your health to oppose Vladimir Putin.

Trump is playing the real politik game – accepting Putin for the thug that he is while looking for US-Russia cooperation in fighting Islamic extremism world wide. It makes sense that, in that context, he would refuse to overtly criticize the Russian dictator. But he doesn’t have to diss the US by bizarrely equating the US with the Putin regime. American presidents don’t poison prominent political opponents and it’s outrageous to even suggest it.

Putin has his own agenda and will be looking for Trump to grant him carte blanche in Ukraine and perhaps even Eastern Europe. He will almost certainly test Trump’s limits as to his tolerance for Putin’s mischief making. A US-Russia alliance to fight ISIS and other radical Islamic extremists would be helpful, but at what price? It will be a delicate balancing act that will test the president’s worldview and commitment to American values in foreign policy.

Is it not a coincidence that when Obama was in office the so called main stream media labeled it the Russian Government for 8 years. Now that President Trump is in office the Russian government reverts back to “The Kremlin” as if Russia was still the same failed Soviet Union from 25 years ago. Since Russia has become Christian Capitalists and Anti-Globalist, its been magically and  fundamentally transformed into its old self by the very same media. Why is that?


Speaking truth to power

One might inquire; Who was responsible for destroying the nations of Libya and Syria, hundreds of thousands dead and millions in exile, and destabilizing the Middle East, Putin?  Recall the sponsors of proxy murderers bragging, “I’m really good at killing people,” ~Barack Hussein Obama, and “We came. We saw. He died.” ~ Hillary Clinton. Then there is the Waco siege, Ruby Ridge tragedy, and theLaVoy” Finicum assassination, and certainly not to forget all the government sponsored abortuaries, and domestic urban murder levels, just to name a few.

Delusions are irrational beliefs, held with a high level of conviction, that are highly resistant to change even when the delusional mob is exposed to forms of proof that contradict it’s belief.

Remember, ‘Those that know aren’t telling, and those that are telling don’t know.”
