  Details   DMCA

There are crimes and there are misdemeanors. Guess which ones are impeachable? The charge that the CIA and Democrats have concocted against Trump is so unserious, in the larger scheme of the empire, that it's a sad joke.

And since when is the President of the USA required to send weapons to foreign countries at all? Where is that section of the Constitution? The entire farce stinks, as Trump could be impeached for a dozen other real issues.

Another trump con is the fact that he put conditions on those Javelin missiles so they can't even be used against the Russians at all. They can only be used in Western Ukraine where there is no fighting going on. He's just enriching the Defense contractors.

Just another example of trump protecting Putin.

Which ones add up?

2+2=4

The US has been a fascist oligarchy for decades and exported extremely corrupt, violent fascist oligarchy to Ukraine during the Obama administration and then proceeded to help pillage that already struggling nation.

2+2=5

Everything wrong in the world is the fault of Trump and Putin. The democrats are on our side.

I like how Putin speaks clearly about Russia's intentions.

Statements like the one in the video make sense and add up correctly as a true statement would. But Putin said it so it must be a lie. Truth must be a lie. Thank you George Orwell.

OMFG? Seriously?

Did Putin not invade and take over Crimea, a part of Ukraine?

Is he not in a war with Ukraine right now to finish the job?

Your believing Putin when his actions are the exact opposite of what he says is the definition of Orwellian!!

"OMFG? Seriously?Did Putin not invade and take over Crimea, a part of Ukraine?"

No. You're repeating propaganda you heard.

Russia has been in Crimea your entire life. There's a gigantic military base there, and most of the province is connected to it and speaks Russian.

The entire reason for explaining these things is because Americans are brainwashed with propaganda lies and know absolutely nothing about Ukraine, despite their passionate anger over a place they can't even locate on a map.

And further, since you think typing "Orwellian" gives your utter ignorance legitimacy--

When the population votes 98%+ to secede from a violent, unelected coup regime, is that democracy? Or is that "Putin conquered Crimea?"

You haven't the slightest clue what you're talking about.

Putin showed and is still showing great restraint in not taking the rest of eastern Ukraine who also voted not to submit to the fascist coup pushed upon them. Our new fascists were intent on letting the new Nazis, the Azov Battalion, aka "the punishers" do some ethnic cleansing of people who spoke Russian. The war that is going on there now has to do with the people of Donbass protecting themselves from occupation by crazy Nazis.

The Russians were not about to give up Sevastopol Naval Base on Crimea to the US/Ukrainians. Don't be silly.

The US is happy as can be to have our weapons on Russia's border while it loots and pillages the rest of the country.

Of course that's what Putin would say, and should say, as representative of Russia's interests. NATO was organized specifically to address "the Russian threat". Nothing to do with the price of tea in China though. Well maybe a little.

"And since when is the President of the USA required to send weapons to foreign countries at all? Where is that section of the Constitution? "

He isn't, unless the congress specifically allocates the funds for that purpose. Arguably they shouldn't have. That's not the point. The constitution gives congress the "power of the purse". The POTUS doesn't get to redirect funding to suit his own purposes. He especially doesn't get to do it when those purposes are specifically, transparently, to advance his own reelection campaign.

Yes they should have impeached him over the wall funding nonsense too.

You seem to be imagining a country that follows its laws or constitution. Consider the first and fourth amendments and then rein in your imagination.

The US does regime changes to loot and pillage. We send in the bankers and high interest austerity programs, We send in as much in military goods as we can sell or give away. The war guys profit whether the money is stripped from us taxpayers or the new victims. In go extractive industries for oil or lithium or palm oil or whatever else can be stripped out. We force in fracking, GMOs and pesticide drenched industrial farming. The new fascist leaders take a cut and our politicians and their families take a cut.

In tomorrow's headlines you will see a Trump Tower in Bolivia for money laundering as they are in the rest of the world. Congress loves this and know there is not a dem challenger who could rake in more money for them. When the dems say they want Trump out, it is a scam to suck more donations from their Russiaphobe cult followers. Both the repubs and the dems are working hard for a Trump victory in 2020.
