The Trump Shutdown: OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019

We have a man who calls himself President of the United States. He is illegitimate, an extreme bully, has covered up many crimes including a monstrous murder for another country and is totally engaged in treason and the destruction of the United States and yet we have not taken him down. He has delayed his own removal and the indictment of others who aided him by closing down the American Government. He knows his time is short so he has taken this grand action.

What will he do next?

His ex-wife claimed, in her divorce papers, that he kept a copy of Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” on his bedside table. With that as his reading material, I would guess his next step is to call for a National Emergency. Isn’t that what Hitler did? Weakened Germany with outlandish actions and as a denouement he called a National Emergency and it was all over until six million Jews and others were killed, Germany was totally destroyed – and unlike Trump, Hitler was not a puppet of a foreign sovereign.

Trump has an attorney who speaks for him on television. Rudi Giuliani. How was this attorney chosen by Trump? Could it be Trump saw the press conference Mr. Giuliani called outside the Mayor’s House in New York City with his then mistress to announce he was going to marry this woman?

Inside Gracie Mansion, Mr. Giuliani’s wife was making breakfast for their son totally unaware of what was going on outside or that there even was a press conference or that her husband was going to divorce her to marry someone else. She learned that when a reporter called to verify the story.

Does that way of operating seem to reflect Trump’s ethics and character? Does that clear up why he chose Giuliani and what he expects from him?

Besides hiring Giuliani, Trump has tried many other ways to shut down the Russian investigation by doing many things – he fired James Comey; he fired Jeff Sessions; he hired Matt Whitaker; he hired William Barr and on and on it has gone – mostly unsuccessful. But his greatest action in attempting to shut down the Russian investigation is this grand Trump government shutdown. Will we allow it to be successful? Or have we had enough!

Trump can console himself with what he has done to the children!

Something like what is and has been happening at the southern border of the U S. has a historical ring to it. Remember when, in these United States, tens of thousands of Native American children were taken forcibly from their homes and sent other places never to see their families again? What was the result? The complete and total oppression of Native Americans. They have not recovered from then to this day. An entire generation was taken from them, forcibly. The overwhelming feelings of helplessness and loss and what losing an entire generation of a nation’s children does to that nation is indescribable. Those children who survived and were not killed, maimed or otherwise destroyed just given a new identity, never recovered. Is that the playbook from which Trump has taken a page to decide what to do about immigration from South America?

Don’t you think we have done enough? Don’t you think it is time to stop pretending to fight the program until the job of total oppression is done and then we can abdicate all responsibility by destroying the final organizer -the doer – the bigot – the neo-Nazi – the Trump? He has no idea what lies in his future. He thinks he is going to be enormously wealthy and live out his life traveling the globe after his removal from office. Can he spell Khashoggi!

Pretend Donald Trump is African American! Now lets replay that reality show again and see what happens?

Porn Star? – Brother Adulterers?

Friday, June 8th, 2018

We could not stay silent about Rudi Giuliani’s comments which he made from Israel about the “classy women” Trump married as opposed to the horrible porn star claiming “falsely” according to Giuliani, that she had an affair with Donald Trump.

Lets take a look at history.  Here is the “Classy Woman” Trump married.  His Wife – Melanie!

The traditional photo of a nude woman on a bear rug is acted out here.  A porn star? Methinks this was done for free and to catch ‘the Donald”.  Lessons acted out in public to show young women how to reach the kind of success women should strive for to spend their lives ‘under’ a man – catering to his every wish and doing his commands so you also can wear designer original clothes, fly on private jets around the world and more.  Your own business giving you some kind of independence which porn stars have?  Not likely!  Independence is not a part of this – note the handcuffs as she is handcuffed to the bed – how about that for symbolism Mr. Giuliani. . These are the lessons Melania Trump brings to young women and young men. This was certainly her way to success and even today, dressed in more clothes which cost a small fortune, her message is – you are an appendage to “your man” and you live your life through him and his life, never on your own standing on your own two feet. Independence is not in the cards.

 

Still lying on that bear rug!  These are the values to pass on to your children? Use your body in this way to get your man who will take care of you so you won’t have to go out into the world and take care of yourself. Melania talked about her interest in fashion. We know several models, none of whom earned their money using their bodies in this way! It did help her get a rich husband, however, a husband who puts no value on women except to satisfy his ego and prurient needs.

Supporting her husbands’ support for the NRA? Showing how women can give their support to the NRA for their husbands benefit?

Half naked with a box full of jewels on a plane represents what kind of moral value? Selling one’s body?  This must be what Rudi Giuliani calls “classy woman” – but is she selling her body or her jewelry?

Why does Giuliani have the gravitas to represent Donald Trump?  Because they are brother adulterers and they treat women in the same very degrading way.  Wasn’t it Rudi Giuliani who was out on the steps of Gracie Mansion calling a press conference with his “mistress” – who apparently then was his press person – telling the press he was divorcing his wife.  Where was his wife?  In the kitchen of the same Gracie Mansion with his son making breakfast for her family.  Did she know about his press conference or the coming divorce?  No!  When did she find out – when a press person called her to get a comment from her on the then mayor’s press conference.  Until that point she knew nothing about her husband divorcing her.  How kind!  How considerate!  How like Donald Trump!

With some 19 plus women accusing Donald Trump of sexual abuse and worse, including rape, it is time for this country to deal with the truth of who their leaders really are and act accordingly.  Also take a look at our “leaders” and “aspiring leaders” and see where their moral compass is pointing – it seems to us they are willing to do anything to achieve what this Trump administration calls success.  Take a look at EPA Pruitt – complimented by Trump on the fine job he is doing.  On his way to becoming an American Oligarch by raping the United States of America.

Donald Trump’s base includes so called Evangelical Christians!  Where is your Christianity when these are the people you are supporting to lead your country?  Where is your Christ?  Certainly not among the likes of these – or are your sins so close to theirs you must support their deviances from Christian values to be able to live with yourselves?  Trash those who do good – Hold up those who lie, cheat, steal, commit adultery, abuse women and worse.

Support those leading this country straight to hell!

Comments from Several Bettina Members

Friday, June 1st, 2018

ed. note: The articles which are published in Bettina Network’s Blog are written by members of Bettina Network Lifestyle Community.  They could be the results of their research, recipes, stories, history, telling us what they are doing and need our support, restaurant reviews, interesting places to shop they know about, etc.  Sometimes they send a full article and sometimes are moved to send a comment.  What follows are several comments by different members of BNLC.

Our Members Speak!

1.) Everything I see about the U. S. Congress under Donald Trump’s presidency makes me think of J. Edgar Hoover.  He was in power a very long time and folks were afraid to make a move which he did not approve.  He kept files on Congress people as well as others he felt were important and who he might need to reach and those files, from what I knew of them, were tantamount to ‘blackmail’.  I wonder if that is why we are seeing such a cowed response from Congress where they will not go against Donald Trump.  This can’t be explained simply by congressional people needing money to run their next campaign and are afraid of alienating Trump and his buddies who are all throughout the Republican Party – especially at the top of the financial area.  Or were at the top of the financial area – wasn’t that Michael Cohen and Broika?

 

2.). Treasonous Trump was notified by the FBI early in his presidential campaign as to the possibility of his campaign being targeted and infiltrated by Russia.  He is now lying to what – cover himself? It is amazing that he is still president.  Russia chose well to destroy the United States.  Wonder what his reward will be!

 

3.). United States history is being replayed on a different level, but you can see the pattern.  During the time of African slavery babies and small children were taken from their parents by whatever means necessary and mostly sold into slavery.  Native American children were taken from their parents under the guise of ‘acculturating’ them properly?  Those were horrendous and extremely painful times.  Now today, the children of immigrants are being taken from their parents for no good reason except for the evil currently in the American system.  How long will this be repeated?  Don’t we see and learn these horrific lessons?

 

4.) Everything Treasonous Trump does seems to be something which promotes and pushes forward Vladimir Putin’s agenda.  He seems to be intentionally weakening the country and doing a very effective job.  Hope I am around to see the clash when Treasonous Trump realizes Putin’s Russia has a gross national product roughly equal to that of the state of California and he is president of much more.  Will he then grab for Putin’s power and expand his mafia world wide?  Will he have Putin arrested because Putin will not be magnanimous about giving up power?  Or worse?  Are there others he will go after to make sure they acknowledge his greater power and control of the universe?

 

5.). When I see Rudi Giuliani defending and speaking for Trump I think of the very similar way they treated their wives.  Rudi announcing his divorce on the steps of Gracie Mansion with his wife inside, totally unaware that a divorce is on the horizon and his girl friend outside in front of the press at Rudi’s side.  When you have that picture in your head and Trump on the slopes years ago with his wife discovering he brought his girl friend on their family vacation and installed her in an expensive condo practically around the corner and the three of them made a scene on the slopes when they met.  And then we put these men up to do the work of the country and expect their ethics and values and character to be anything but crap?

 

6.) We have acknowledged and reported extensively on Bill Cosby and Weinstein.  A name that must be added to that lineup is Donald Trump.  The action of those men should be grouped together because they were very similar.

7.). I think Trump used fraud to keep from serving his country when called.  Now he is serving himself at the United States’ banquet table where all the wealth, business and gold of his country are laid out and he is feasting on it.  Feasting with greed like I’ve never seen before.  Doubling the membership fees at Mar-a-Lago adding $100,000 per member to his pocketbook the day after he is elected president along with myriad other money and wealth grabs – it is unbelievable.  I didn’t think I would ever see such money grab from the president of these United States.  And at the same time his talk about patriotism and dumping on and calling others unpatriotic and “throw the **** out” just makes me want to gag.  It is chilling and we have done nothing about this.

8.). His push to aggrandize U. S. businesses at the expense of the middle class and others is horrendous.  Is he getting some kind of kickback from the businesses and industries he so ‘helps’ when he leaves office?

9.) What is happening in Puerto Rico just breaks my heart.  I don’t know what to do and I feel strongly as though I should do something.  Over 4,000 people died because of Donald Trump’s racism.  How many more are we going to see meet a horrible fate because of his need to be better than.  He has already cultivated many whites into stepping out into the sunlight with their White Supremacy.  His father apparently marched in a white sheet and pointed hat down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D. C. as a part of the KKK – he is making what his father raised him to do and believe small.  He has taken that filth to heights the father never dreamed.

The Royal Wedding

Sunday, May 20th, 2018

by Marceline Donaldson

I know those who know me knew this was coming.  And I am sure you knew I would gloat!  Finally – a mixed race person at the top where we should be.  That said, and you see that I can be as bigoted as anyone else – lets get serious!

Watching the coverage of the royal wedding at 3am in the morning and watching it until 10am was like over gouging on chocolate cake.

It was a breath of fresh air in a world sorely in need of such.

I saw England moving away from a “blue blood” state, becoming a part of the creation of a very diverse world which recognizes its differences and holds them “in love” – as Bishop Curry would say.  I can say that even after watching the jaws drop and the bemused look on some of England’s “royalty” as Bishop Curry’s sermon and his style took hold of those present and those watching via television.

After seeing and feeling Meghan Markle and Henry Windsor’s coming together produce a really remarkable outpouring of love and produce a new thing – accepted at the highest levels of the English government through its English royalty – the feelings I had stayed with me long after the formal part of the wedding ended.  To know this is who would be the “Royals” at the top of the Commonwealth made me want to be a part of that group, that environment, that world.

From what I know and have experienced as a mixed race person and having met many such people over time, the one thing we share is the fact that we don’t have or belong to a “group”.  The kind of “group” basic to this world.  Are you black? white? Asian? NO?  Then who is your group?  What is your identity and how do you get that feeling of belonging!

I remembered back to when I was excused from jury duty because I refused to fill out a form following what society dictated I should say and filled it out with the truth of who I am.  The form was about race.  Supposed to be an illegal thing, but to be filled out during those days and probably still today under the guise of being “research” to make sure jurors were representative – of what?  Certainly not the human race – but they wanted to know who you were under the false construct we have devised to create this “better than” or “less than” existence.

The form said something like – White, African American, Asian, Native American, etc.  I filled in “other” and then listed the fictional “races” which supposedly contributed to my genetic makeup.  The judge asked me to refill in a form and offered a blank form for me to re-fill it “correctly” and I said I had already done that and after a few minutes I was excused.

That was only one small example.  Try a lifetime of such and then have children who are also mixed race and watch what they go through, which turns out to be worse, and then watch this “Royal Wedding.”

Meghan Markle has done an extraordinary job of walking across the water finding the submerged boulders to step across on so she could cross the ocean without drowning.  And along with Prince Harry has found a place and a way to now share that experience.  Her wedding was neither White nor Black; English nor American; and on and on you could go.  It held up the culture and religious practices and symbols of all beautifully.

And then I had to come back to earth and deal with the reality of my American life currently under President Donald Trump.

The “Royal Wedding” showed us what could be – Trump shows us what is and in Trump’s world the lies, distortions, bigotry via the nazi influence and all the rest was all over television following the Royal Wedding doing its worse. It was almost as if his “spirits”, his “evil spirits” were working hard to blot out what we had just seen to keep us within their grasp.

It is time for Americans to deal with the truth.  We live in a country which is and has been in a constant struggle against its own history and with this Donald Trump episode we are losing that struggle.

I came back to reality with the shooting – yet another school shooting, this time in Texas.  A shooting in which the media covered everything except the fact that we need to look at this history and see the acceleration of such and lay the blame at the feet of our current president as the latest incarnation of those who would keep America in such a state for their own reasons – which are generally greed; self-aggrandizement; money; power and control.

Why do I lay the blame for the school shootings at Trump’s feet?

This has been a long time coming.  For some seven plus years Donald J. Trump has been the center of tearing down these United States – big time.  He generated one lie after another and the biggest was all the time and energy he spent spewing garbage – which he continues to do.  His biggest load was to spend those seven years tearing down the United States by combining with its filthiest elements and proclaiming to the world his claim that Barack Obama was not a legitimate president and therefore everything he does is illegitimate because he was lying about having been born in these United States.  According to Trump, Obama was actually born in Africa.  And along with that were the pictures of Barack and Michelle Obama in various dress and forms – a gorilla; exaggerated African dress and attributes and more. Trump keeps those images and those lies in front of the American people by moving ahead strongly with his campaign to remove everything the Obamas have done so he can wipe out any and all acts of the government of an African American President of these United States.  Those lies and that kind of way of acting and being have been a consistency in the Trump administration and in Trump’s life from its beginnings – yes, from his birth.  Trump’s bigotry is not new.  His lies and attempts to bring in a Nazi regime is not new.  He has been laying the ground work for this for decades.  We have just refused to take that evil seriously. We have passed it off as “posturing” and with other excuses because some of us need a Trump in this country to maintain its bigotry so we can keep our hands clean and still maintain the “better than” benefits we get from such evil.  We can maintain the white males privileges at the expense of everyone else without having to roll up our sleeves to accomplish such.  We can maintain we are not bigots like Trump and quietly support his efforts under the cover of many things.

We know the history and bigotry practiced in these United States.  It is impossible not to know as we look around at our currently segregated schools; our neighborhoods which many realtors and others keep segregated; our social, golf, and other clubs places we can go and not have to deal with those “less than” – where we can deal with”our own kind”.  And we know and have known about Trump and his extreme bigotry because he made sure his vile and racist rants were as public as possible.

And what happened to him?  He was elected President of these United States!  And now he is being given the benefit of the rule of law in these United States which he is currently and massively trying to deny to others who don’t fit into his scheme of a Nazi like takeover with Trump as Adolph only his emphasis is on money and becoming the wealthiest and most powerful man in the country.

It is time to turn that rule of law with a huge spotlight onto Donald J. Trump.  He has committed many crimes – the latest being his call for the DOJ and others to “investigate”.  All over the front pages of this mornings papers.  What is the truth?  His son – Donald Trump, Jr. is being called into question because of meetings he had which look as though he was selling the United States Presidency to foreign countries.  Bringing them in to help get his father elected president.  The timing of this call to investigate by Donald Trump, Sr. – making headlines and a serious call to a very serious investigation via a “tweet” demand every citizen, every group of lawmakers and law enforcers, every citizen of this country, especially when such a “tweet” is taken seriously enough to make the front page of the leading newspapers and much less coverage given to the real issue – what was Donald Trump, Jr. doing in the meetings he called during his father’s campaign which look clearly as though they are to manipulate the campaign to turn in results other than those the voters chose.  An illegitimate president should be the headlines.  This man and all of his appointed administration need to be removed immediately.

The increase in the school shootings can be directly laid at this incarnation of Donald J. Trump’s feet.  And at the feet of his immediate family – who all together are trying to bring about the same result.  Lying about bring jobs back to America when their companies outsource their jobs to other countries because they can get the citizens of those countries to work for slave wages instead of paying the kind of living wages they would have to pay if, for example, Ivanka Trump’s company had to bring its jobs on shore from Bangladesh and other countries struggling to get a foot hold in this world’s economy.

From the Royal Wedding with its dream of a wonderfully diverse world to America and Donald Trump with his dream of bringing about a world where the rule of law is destroyed in favor of the rule of Trump and his Associates – with families forcibly destroyed; people jailed without cause; lies told to the American public constantly and vicious lies at that; monies taken from other countries to fatten the pocket book of the Trumps; tearing down “immigrants’ but getting your message of extreme bigotry at all costs out into the public by appearing with an immigrant wife and not the first immigrant wife who is ‘different’.  And of what is that difference composed – the color of her skin and the country from which she comes?  Messages sent and received.  Not all “immigrants” are bad – judge them by the color of their skin not the content of their character.

How are the law enforcers in this country responding to the visage of Rudi Giuliani?  Once held up as their hero?  What do you think of your hero today – with his character, honor, values exposed for all to see – out from under the cover of pretense?

We need to go back over the history of these United States and how did we get here.  Maybe that will help give us a map for getting out of this mess and moving into a world where diversity is accepted, equality is the rule and we see each other as human beings.

Let’s start with today and move back into our history!

We have the reincarnation of a group headed by Donald Trump and finally supported in the extreme with his entire future on the line by Rudi Giuliani.  Donald Trump equals Senator Joe McCarthy.  Rudi Giuliani equals Attorney Roy Cohn.  Does that group’s history and from whence it has come begin to materialize?  They almost destroyed this country.  They did destroy the lives of many of its citizens with the Congressional hearings seeking, at that time in history, “Communists”.  It is interesting to look at who they considered and really went after.

Lets move back in time.  There are so many places to stop and relook and relearn.

Lets go back to who built the railroads in these United States.  Maybe the Chinese government wants to forget – but the people who were attacked and who lived horribly oppressed lives in these United States were the Chinese Americans and the Chinese immigrants.  Remember that time?

And lets take a look at the Japanese.  Remember what we did to American citizens because they were of Japanese descent?  We gathered them up into concentration camps and took away their property and all of what they and their families had acquired of the “American Dream”.  Recently, we passed laws in Congress for “reparations” to the Japanese, but we also had the parallel quiet program of foot dragging so much of the money would not be dispersed, but would be kept because we needed to foot drag until the Japanese who qualified for these reparations were dead and we could keep the money and continue those kind of actions.

Lets go back to another time, which directly involved Donald Trump and his family.  To the time when the KKK was rampant – lynchings were happening across the country and remember when the KKK marched in all of its white robes and pointy hats down Pennsylvania Avenue some tens of thousands of them – apparently also including Donald Trump’s father who was arrested during that demonstration.  In the 1930’s was it?

So Trump and his Nazi – racist – bigotry – was acquired naturally.  It was passed on through time through his family history.  His immigrant family history of just a generation – back to his grandfather who immigrated to this country with no money, no education and no ability to speak the language.  And what did he do?  Eventually built a hotel which was rumored to be a brothel!  The beginnings of the Trump family fortune and its foundational history.  Is that why he has so many women accusing his of sexual abuse; assault and so much more.  Just to look at his administration it is clear his core life is about sexual discrimination – women have but one use and it is not to be a part of the Trump Administration in any other than a symbolic appearance.

Lets keep that history up front and high up so we can be reminded of where our present administration comes from and understand from that history where they are going.

Lets go back even further – when this country, finally after a few hundred years “freed” its African slaves.  There was slavery in the world before that, but it was the United States during the time of establishing this African slavery that turned slaves into a group based on the color of their skin.

“Reconstruction” came after slavery and Reconstruction was killed by this same group which is now on this earth in the form of Donald Trump and his followers.  I had ancestors elected to public office in the Deep South during Reconstruction – put on the railroad tracks after being tarred and feathered and forced to walk away.

Reconstruction was killed and turned into “Jim Crow” to maintain a “less than” and ” better than” group. Kill the inclination to any form of equality taking hold in these United States.   And it was a very effective killing which ruined many lives.  Tactics others would not try nor emulate because of things like honor, character, truth, love, God.  God of love not the god of the evangelical christians who have combined with Trump to bring about hell on earth.

And, I don’t need to go back into the years of African slavery – but if you look at that history you will find Donald Trump’s spirit all through it.

And then there is the movement to free women.  Africans in this country were enslaved using the marriage laws and that was very effective.  It is just tragic that when those marriage laws were failing and  were losing their strength that the gay community came along to fight to keep such laws by demanding they be included in that enslavement which women suffered under so many generations.

And let us not forget things like the “Trail of Tears” and other such horrors inflicted on the Native Americans – those who, in many cases, welcomed and helped the Northern Europeans seeking refuge in this country from the horrible ways they had been treated in their old countries from which they were fleeing.  In those treatment you will also find Donald Trump’s spirit and it is still flying around that community as you look at the current Donald Trump’s stances and actions against that Native American community.

Todays Donald Trump has shown what he thinks of women and what their place should be.  His administration is an example of the America we have all fought very hard to change.  It is an administration of white males and white male top corporate people who are bleeding America dry for their own self-aggrandizement and to accumulate wealth beyond their needs and beyond their legal rights.  Trump has been busy working with them to expand those “legal” rights so they can take away from others to put into their own pockets whether earned or not billions that we see clearly are far from earned.  We are now in the position for creating billionaires and at the same time and for the same reasons ever increasing numbers of homeless peoples because of that greed – which today starts at the top.  GREED is what most characterizes this Trump administration.  Women are simply a distraction to be used when the sick male ego needs shoring up – as Trump’s has and Bill Cosby’s has and Weinstein’s has and many even before all of them..

As you read this – hold it up against truth; hold it up against your life and where you stand in all of this; hold it up against God’s love following Michael Curry’s iteration of that; and hold it up against your family.  How do you come out?  Are you holding your head down and hiding in the hopes that this too shall pass and you will be none the worse for it having erupted at this time in your life?  Are you actively promoting and helping all of this garbage to succeed, multiply and be spewn across the boulevards, streets, roads and corners of America because you hope to one day be one of these obscene people?  Are you actively working to bring about the America we have promised each other for generations?  Let truth rumble around your heart and mind as you consider these things and then act accordingly.

Trump’s American Oligarchs and Giuliani

Friday, April 27th, 2018

It has been amazing to see how Trump has gone about destroying America and bringing it down to size so Putin could benefit and control the world.  Who will manage to gain world control first – Putin or Bezos?  Very different play books; lifestyles, goals and objectives.

First: Giuliani.

Why was he brought in?  What is his goal? What are his marching orders?

One can only hope he has more care and concern for the United States than he does for Trump.  Sometimes, however, that has not been so clear.  His morality and values have been showing for quite some time and they don’t look as though he wears a “white hat”.

We think Giuliani’s two week deadline is dead serious.  Not that Mueller’s investigation will be wrapped up by that time – this coming Thursday – but it didn’t sound to us as though those two weeks were about Mueller finishing his investigation.  He can’t be allowed to do that because Trump isn’t coming out looking good.  In fact, Trump is looking like crap with morals and values that make Giuliani’s look like Jesus’.

What has been clear to us is that by this coming Thursday, Giuliani will be present at Trump’s side as he fires Mueller.  Hasn’t Giuliani surfaced to be present at the ‘execution’ – so to speak.  To help pick up the pieces and be one of Trump’s people helping so Trump won’t be alone as he manages the fallout from that act.  And, possibly so Giuliani comes out ‘top dog’ in a way he could never be otherwise.

If you have any doubts, listen to the Fox interview with ‘President’ Trump and what most call the ‘rant’, but which actually sounds as though it is something coming from someone who can’t control the power he thinks will soon be in his hands.

Second: Putin’s Americanized Playbook!

Now that Trump has done his best to cause as much disruption in the American Government as possible, especially by putting into government people who are diametrically opposed to the cabinet position to which they have been appointed to wreck all of those areas with upheaval causing distractions as a bonus, the next step – so thinks Putin, Trump and company – should be a breeze.

All of the upheaval Trump has put down – after having given himself a mental out, if things take a turn in the wrong direction – now makes it easier to establish American Oligarch’s in the Putin/Russian style.

When the Soviet Union became Russia there was a lot of publicly owned utilities, monopolies and more such huge structures hanging out waiting for the next step.  That next step  was to ‘privatize’ – Russian style – all or most of those structures making a handful of Russians unimaginably wealthy.  They then built a human shield around Putin so his taking over would be complete – the creation of the ‘super wealthy’ class – the Russian Oligarchs.

That Russian playbook, we think, has been translated American style and that is what Trump is following.  How?  Privatize as much of America as possible and put the largest structures, now publicly owned into the hands of the select few who would be the American counterparts to the Russian Oligarchs by having them form the human shield around Trump.  We’ve seen the attempt and plan to privatize the armed forces, – the VA, eliminate the Education Dept, kill the Energy Dept. and on and on it goes.

That is being played out with the Veterans Affairs structure.  The number 7, 8 or 9, if it were on the largest 100 corporations in America, being privatized would be a very large step on the way to achieving that goal.

Trump, having fired the head of the VA when he took office was an early step.  It has been complicated by the American spirit which tends to be generationally republic on its way to a democracy.   That is a very different mind set than was in Russia when Putin took it over.  A mindset we don’t believe Putin or Trump could begin to understand.

Having fired McDonald – who had been head of Proctor and Gamble – probably, we think, because he was not into privatization of the VA of which Obama set him up to head, finding someone else who would be open to do the Russian Oligarch thing in America has not been an easy task. That could not be someone with experience. It would ideally be  someone with not even the beginnings of experience on that level.  Someone who could be manipulated without knowing it; who was willing to go ahead with the privatization plan or at the very least who would not know the privatization plan was in play,  moving ahead under his inability to watch over such a large organization.  Someone whose ego would carry him away as head of such prestige who wouldn’t really care what was happening on his watch as long as it didn’t affect him.  Someone like Pruitt at the EPA – so busy lining his own pockets he could care less what was happening and the best way to distract from what he is doing is to cause upheavals and take resources to deal with his mess.

Now what!  How does the playbook continue in play with Trump losing it because he is actually, experience wise, in the position Ronnie Jackson was in when he was elected president.  That is quite a parallel.  Trump had about an equivalent amount of experience when he took over the American government as president and Putin was clearly aware of that fact.

What was really wrong with Hillary Clinton, as far as this Russian plan was concerned?  She was totally experienced and ready to be a totally functioning president.  It would not be possible to put over on her the kinds of things Putin and Company have put over on Trump.  Some say Putin favored Trump because of his dislike of Hillary.  We think that is ridiculous given what is at stake.  Likes and dislikes don’t come into play when one is shooting for the high stakes in this game.

Trump has probably worn out his welcome with Russia and Putin, so now what!  Clearly, his usefulness has come to an end.  So have his dreams of Trump Tower Moscow.  The “privatization” of huge public companies is going no place so the creation of the equivalent in America to Russian Oligarchs has come to an end.  Do they have an alternative game plan to bring in in case of failure of this one?

The part of the playbook we were most amazed at was the willingness of Putin and Trump to throw as many “mafia” types into top positions in the United States as needed hoping enough would stick to get the game way down the road to success.  Failures would just be dropped into the sewer.  The penalty the failures would receive would be their name, reputation and future smashed.

Trumps’ problem and what slowed him down to a stop even though he tried very hard was not being able to get rid of the media with his calls of “Fake News” and other such tactics so what was happening would not be noticed.  The United States media is roughly akin to the Putin concept of how to take down America – throw as many “news hounds” as possible against the wall.  Some will stick and climb to the top, others will fall by the way side, but there will be no end to those begging to be thrown against the wall even if it means serious injury to health, life, wealth and family.  And so the U. S. media, in the end, will help the U. S. citizenry win the game they don’t even know they are playing and don’t have a clue it is being played against them.
