  1. You draw a lot of conclusions. My single purpose was to stand against McCarthyism and there's evidence that supports that. About the cares act and tax cuts, from what I remember it was a landslide vote in Congress in support of it's passage. Dalton: Opinions vary. ...
  2. Trump has kept the Obama sanctions and added sanctions, bombed Russian allies, pulled out of treaties. The Trump administration has also replaced Obama’s reticence regarding U.S. troop deployments near Russia with a full embrace of the European Deterrence Initiative. In just more than two years in office, Trump has requested more than $17 billion for EDI compared with just $5 billion requested in Obama’s final three years in office. As a result, thousands of U.S. troops, along with other NATO allies, have deployed to Poland, the Baltics and Norway to deter further Russian expansion. Despite Trump's frequent criticism of NATO's cost-sharing formula — a sizeable increase in U.S. outlays for military operations in Europe since he took office. Most of that jump in spending was on the European Deterrence Initiative, an effort to strengthen U.S. military forces in Europe begun by the Obama administration in response to Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea and continued backing of pro-Russia separatists in Ukraine. During the first three years of that effort, originally known as the European Reassurance Initiative, the Obama administration dedicated about $5.2 billion to building up the American military presence in Europe. The Trump administration has more than tripled what its predecessor spent on the EDI: A total of $17.2 billion has been requested for the initiative in the three annual budgets the current White House has sent to Congress, which in turn has approved those funding levels After Russia invaded Ukraine in 2014, Ukrainian leaders desperately requested from President Barack Obama defensive anti-tank weapons systems that could fend off the invading Russian T-72 tanks in eastern Ukraine. In 2015, members of the Senate Armed Services Committee — Democrats and Republicans — encouraged Obama to grant this request to help Ukraine defend itself. Obama refused . Soon after coming into office, Trump changed course , and the Ukrainians now have Javelin anti-tank weapons systems from the United States. Russian tank drivers have a lot more to worry about today.
  3. Trump hired John Bolton and for what reason Trump got rid of him before Bolton started World War 3 and possibly World War 4. Bush started the Iraq war that killed hundreds of thousands of civilians. Obama with the help of Hillary Clinton destroyed Libya.
  4. This story is going around without restraint, who are the sources? Maddow is foaming at the mouth again, I would say this that Trump has been harder on Russia then the "Dem. bias news" want's to admit and Maddow will never report the counter argument showing Trumps harassment to Russia through troop deployment, sanction's, and arm sales.
  5. if the Times report is true----- if,if,if only Iran had weapons of mass destruction.
  6. """" if""" Russian involvement in operations targeting Americans,"""" if""" confirmed, is likely to lead to outrage on Capitol Hill and questions about why the administration has not responded to it. Spokesmen for the National Security Council, the Pentagon, and the CIA declined to comment. The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement that the story, “illustrates the low intellectual abilities of propagandists from the American intelligence, who instead of inventing something more reliable have to come up with such nonsense... However, what else can be expected from intelligence, which miserably failed the twenty-year war in Afghanistan” The Taliban denied any involvement. “We categorically reject the notion of ever planning or carrying out targeted attacks against U.S. or foreign forces at the behest of foreign intelligence or for the sake of collecting bounty,” said Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid in a statement, “and we also reject receiving material support from foreign intelligence because such undertakings are harmful for the sovereign decision-making of any country and movement.” """ IF """ The attempt to stoke violence against Americans, if confirmed, would also represent a signifiant departure from Moscow’s earlier position toward Islamist militants in Afghanistan. Previously, U.S. officials had cited what they characterized as sporadic, low-level Russian support for the Taliban, including the supply of small arms via Afghanistan’s northern neighbors. """alleged""" While Moscow’s motives for alleged bounties were not immediately clear, officials said they might include retaliation for the U.S. military’s 2018 killing of Russian mercenary troops working for Yevgeniy Prigozhin, an oligarch with links to Russian President Vladimir Putin, in Syria, or simply, as one official put it, an attempt to “muddy the negotiations on Afghanistan by throwing a stick in that.”
  7. https://www.rawstory.com/2020/06/trump-administration-has-refused-to-respond-after-learning-russia-offered-bounties-for-killing-us-troops-report/ “The United States concluded months ago that the Russian unit, which has been linked to assassination attempts and other covert operations in Europe intended to destabilize the West or take revenge on turncoats, had covertly offered rewards for successful attacks last year,” The Times explained. “Islamist militants, or armed criminal elements closely associated with them, are believed to have collected some bounty money, the officials said. Twenty Americans were killed in combat in Afghanistan in 2019, but it was not clear which killings were under suspicion.” Dmitry Peskov, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s press secretary, said the United States had not raised the issue. “If someone makes them, we’ll respond,” Peskov said of the accusation.
