Trumps plan against America

    Looking forward to speech from Jeff Flake comparing Trump to Joseph Stalin in his approach toward the free press. Stalin said the press was the enemy of the state, just as Trump has reiterated many times. Other past communists leaders from both Russia and China have deliberately NOT gone that far in their comments about the press, because they feared going to that extreme. When will Americans (especially republicans) wake up to the fact that Trump clearly has authoritarian tendencies? He not only admires Putin but also his style of government. His relentless daily attack on the news media is alarming. His denigration of all our government institutions plays right into the hands of Putin. Putin hates our democracies in the west and is actively trying to take them down. I believe Trump is a puppet of Putins' and is aiding and abetting him every single day with his words and actions. Putin must be very pleased with Trumps' performance so far, with the exception of removing sanctions, which I'm sure will come eventually unless Trump is stopped. Trump is a clear and present danger to our democracy. Republicans need to stop making excuses for Trumps' unacceptable behavior and get a backbone. If they continue to give Trump free reign to say or do whatever he wants, I have to conclude they are complicit in his plan, even if that plan involves conspiracy against America! Trump must go now!

    Trump must go -- Welcome to the website. With a name like that, you'll have lots of followers.

    I can agree with much of what you have written. Trump has been compromised to some extent by his financial dealings with the Russians (most likely money laundering) through real estate transactions. Trump's Taj Mahal casino was already fined $10 million for money laundering so why not real estate as well.

    Trump is certainly a clear and preset danger...and that danger seems to be getting more perilous each day.

    Where my thinking deviates from yours is that I don't think removal from office is something that will happen any time soon. Republicans are protecting him...tribalism has overtaken any kind of process to control him. He is controlling Republicans instead of the other way around. They are his enablers.

    I agree with you, Trump must go, but I also agree with Schmidt that there is little to zero chance of that happening before 12:00 noon EST 1/20/2021. And if he is reelected, which is very possible considering how divided we are as a country, then I don't see him going before 12:00 noon EST 1/20/2025. That is unless he doesn't die of a heart attack before then.

    The Republican Party will not throw Donald out of office and Donald knows it. Like he said - he could shoot someone in the middle of 5th Avenue and not lose any voters. Even if (and this is a big, big if) the Democrats retake the House and begin impeachment proceedings next year and then get enough votes to send his impeachment referral to the Senate then an overwhelming majority of Republicans will have to vote to remove him from office, which I just don't see happening.

    Our best bet is to mobilize for 2020 and line up behind whoever the nominee is. If we fracture like we did in 2016 then Donald will be reelected. If those on the far left eventually accept that getting 90% of something they like is better than getting 0% then Donald will lose.

    Soon, very soon, there are going to be many more indictments. Indictments on federal and state levels. Very serious indictments. The entire gang is going to face Justice . The GOP leadership are going to be exposed as traitors who conspired to subvert the electoral process. Many organized crime mobsters will have their US assets seized. There will be court trials . Worse there will be convictions. It will be a painful experience for our country . And there right wing terrorists will most likely cause some trouble.

    We are witnessing a coup attempt . Will it succeed ? I believe the fat idiot is actually taking orders from Putin daily. End his communication with Putin and watch him shrivel and die. He can't even read. He can't think for himself. He is an idiot a functioning idiot . He is taking orders from someone. Kelly for sure . So is Kelly getting his orders then from Putin ? If not , and there is that conflict then this could get interesting . Because it is obvious that the fat idiot is under someone's control.

    This is a shit show now.we have a shit show. A Republican production with cooperation from Vlad Putin. They are trying to collapse our government. Our economy and our justice system . They are attacking our social saftey nets and our traditions . We are under attack. Every day , it's a new attack. The fat idiot is today meeting in our White house with a dictator . The dictator of Kyrsbecistan or something. In our White house.

    Some bad shit is going to happen. I'm very sorry for the American people.

    It may turn out different than you say. I don't believe any country can maintain the chaos at present; something is going to happen. But what? I don't know, but the only thing I can say if Trump stays, the US will be no longer an influence in the world and become an "third world" isolated country.

    Yes your last line says it all! Kelly and Miller are the most dangerous indeed. Bannon was holy compared to them.
